San Francisco: 

Facebook today said its charitable giving tools have helped people raise over $1 billion in the last three years.

Over 20 million people have either donated to or started a fundraiser on Facebook.

The social network also announced that it was bringing the non-profit fundraising tools to Canada and Australia.

“Our nonprofit and personal fundraising tools are now available in 20 countries,” Naomi Gleit, Facebook’s Vice-President for Social Good, said in a statement.

People use Facebook’s charitable giving tools for non-profit and personal causes.

Facebook introduced these tools in 2015. However, they are not available in India.

“Our non-profit community also continues to grow, and there are now over 1 million nonprofits in 19 countries that can receive donations directly through Facebook,” Gleit added.

With fundraisers both big and small, people have made a lasting difference in their communities.

Save the Children, for example, raised more than $7.5 million over the past two years, which contributed to helping 6.5 million children in crisis across 60 countries.

Similarly, No Kid Hungry raised over $5 million from more than 200,000 donors on Facebook to help feed kids across the US, Facebook said.

Madhya Pradesh Elections 2018: Shivraj Singh Chauhan says rahul gandhi is so confused, can people like him run a government


नई दिल्ली: कांग्रेस अध्यक्ष राहुल गांधी द्वारा सीएम शिवराज सिंह चौहान के बेटे पर पनामा पेपर लीक में नाम होने के बयान को बीजेपी चुनावी मुद्दा बनाने में कोई कोरकसर नहीं छोड़ रही है. इसी कड़ी में सीएम शिवराज सिंह चौहान ने एक बार फिर से राहुल गांधी पर एक चुनावी रैली में तंज कसा. सीएम चौहान ने कहा कि राहुल बाबा को ये नहीं पता है कि प्याज कहां उगता है. प्याज, जमीन के अंदर उगता है या फिर जमीन के बाहर राहुल गांधी को ये भी नहीं पता है. राहुल इतने भ्रमित हैं कि उन्होंने कह दिया कि मेरे बेटे का नाम पनामा पेपर्स में है. चौहान ने कहा कि हम किसान हैं और हमें तो यह भी नहीं पता कि पनामा है क्या.

कांग्रेस मेरे खून की प्यासी हो गई है, मेरी हत्या की साजिश रची जा रही है : शिवराज सिंह चौहान

 

राहुल पर दर्ज कराया है आपराधिक मानहानि का मामला
सीएम शिवराज सिंह चौहान ने राहुल गांधी पर हमला बोलते हुए कहा कि कांग्रेस अध्यक्ष को प्याज कहां उगता है नहीं पता. लेकिन भ्रमित होकर मेरे बेटे पर आरोप लगा दिया. उन्होंने जनता से सवाल पूछते हुए कहा कि क्या उनके जैसे भ्रमित लोग सरकार चला पाएंगे. गौरतलब है कि मुख्यमंत्री शिवराज सिंह चौहान के पुत्र कार्तिकेय चौहान ने कांग्रेस अध्यक्ष पर आपराधिक मानहानि का केस दर्ज करवाया है. कार्तिकेय इस मामले में कोर्ट में अपने बयान भी दर्ज करा चुके हैं. 

 

राहुल गांधी के खिलाफ आपराधिक मानहानि मामले में शिवराज के बेटे ने दर्ज कराए बयान

राहुल गांधी ने बाद में दी थी बयान पर सफाई
बता दें कि बयान दर्ज कराने के बाद कार्तिकेय चौहान ने कहा था कि उन्होंने मेरे खिलाफ जनता के बीच आरोप लगाए थे कि मेरा नाम पनामा पेपर लीक मामले में शामिल है. बाद में उन्होंने कहा कि वे गलत हैं. कार्तिकेय ने कहा कि मेरे और मेरे पिता शिवराज सिंह पर झूठे आरोप लगाए गए हैं. मैंने इस मामले में आज अपने बयान दर्ज करा दिए हैं. गौरतलब है कि 29 अक्तूबर को राहुल गांधी ने झाबुआ में एक रैली को संबोधित करते हुए कहा था कि सीएम शिवराज के बेटे कार्तिकेय चौहान का नाम पनामा पेपर लीक मामले में शामिल है. वहीं, राहुल के इस बयान पर सीएम शिवराज सिंह चौहान ने उन्हें आड़े हाथों लिया था. जिसके बाद राहुल गांधी ने कहा था कि बीजेपी में इतना भ्रष्टाचार है कि उन्होंने कन्फ्यूज होकर कार्तिकेय का नाम ले लिया.

राहुल के गलती मानने के बावजूद भी मामला यहीं पर नहीं थमा सीएम शिवराज के बेटे कार्तिकेय चौहान ने इस मामले पर कांग्रेस अध्यक्ष के खिलाफ आपराधिक मानहानि का केस दर्ज कराया था. इस मामले में कार्तिकेय ने भोपाल की जिला अदालत में अपने बयान दर्ज करा चुके हैं. इस केस की अगली सुनवाई 17 दिसंबर तय की गई है. 

rahul gandhi zee news के लिए इमेज परिणाम

राहुल गांधी का बयान
दरअसल, राहुल गांधी ने इंदौर में अपने चुनावी दौरे में पनामा पेपर और व्यापमं घोटाले की बात करते हुए कहा था कि ‘कुछ धनी लोगों के काले धन को सफेद करने के लिए ही 2016 में नोटबंदी की गई थी. एक मुख्यमंत्री ‘मामाजी’ के बेटे का नाम भी पनामा पेपर्स में आया था, लेकिन उनके खिलाफ आज तक कोई कार्यवाई नहीं की गई. नवाज शरीफ पाकिस्तान के प्रधानमंत्री का नाम निकलता है तो पाकिस्तान जैसा देश उन्हें जेल में डाल देता है, लेकिन जब यहां के मुख्यमंत्री के बेटे का नाम पनामा पेपर्स में निकला तो कोई कार्यवाई नहीं की गई.’

पनामा पेपर्स में संलिप्तता बेबुनियाद आरोप- शिवराज
वहीं राहुल गांधी के बयान को निशाने पर लेते हुए सीएम शिवराज ने कहा था कि ‘राहुल गांधी जी ने आज सार्वजनिक सभा में मुझ पर पनामा पेपर्स में संलिप्त होने का बेबुनियाद आरोप लगाया है. मैं उनके इस बयान से काफी व्यथित हूं, उनसे उम्र में काफी छोटा हूं, पर ऐसी गैर-जिम्मेदाराना बात बोल कर मेरी और मेरे परिवार की छवि को खंडित करने का यह प्रयास बचपने की आड़ में एक सोची समझी साजिश लगती है. राहुल गांधी ने कहा है कि मेरे बेटे कार्तिकेय का नाम पनामा पेपर्स में आया है यह कहकर उन्होंने सारी हदें पार कर दी हैं.’

AIADMK Slams Rajinikanth, Says People Will Decide Who Is Strong And Weak


Rajinikanth had remarked that Prime Minister Narendra Modi seemed to be a “strong” man electorally (File)

Chennai: 

Slamming Tamil superstar Rajinikanth for his remarks that Prime Minister Narendra Modi seemed to be a “strong” man electorally, the ruling AIADMK today said people would decide who is “strong” and “weak” during elections as they were the “reviewing authorities.”

Senior AIADMK leader and state Fisheries Minister D Jayakumar was responding to Rajinikanth’s statement yesterday that Prime Minister Modi seemed to be a “strong” man electorally, which was evident from a mega alliance trying to shape up against the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre.

“Whether strong or weak, election is the answer for that. People review us….they are the reviewing authorities for every party. They will decide, not you and me,” he told reporters in Chennai.

People would review the AIADMK lawmakers’ performance in next year’s Lok Sabha polls, as well as during the assembly elections in 2021, he added.

Supporters of respective parties may say good things about their party led governments, but people would “assess” their performance, especially during elections, he said.

“We may say that our children are good, but it is the teacher/headmaster who assesses their activities. The people are those teachers/headmasters,” he added.

Rajinikanth’s remarks had come amid speculation that opposition parties were looking at a mega coalition against the PM Modi government for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

“When 10 persons go against one person, who is stronger? Those 10 or the person they are aligning against? If 10 persons declare a war against one man, who is stronger?,” he had asked when questioned on the possibility of such an opposition alliance.

Asked if PM Modi was “stronger” and whether this was what he implied through his statement, the actor said he “can’t be more clear”.

Mr Jayakumar, responding to the political developments in neighbouring Sri Lanka, said one cannot interfere in the internal affairs of another country.

However, considering the overall welfare of minority Tamils, “our umbilical chord relations”, was important, he said.

Sri Lanka’s Parliament on today passed a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa who was installed by President Maithripala Sirisena in a controversial move.

Obese People May Enjoy Food Less: Study


According to a study published in the journal Food Quality and Preference, obesity and foods restrictions are associated with less food enjoyment. For this study, 552 adolescents between 11 and 17 years old from several high schools in Granada, have had their emotional reactions analysed during the visualisation of images of sweet foods. The researchers observed that those adolescents who reported different types of dietary restrictions, along with those who were obese and those who had unhealthy behaviours unrelated to food, felt less pleasure, attraction and desire to eat the highly palatable foods they were looking at.

The researchers explained, adolescence, typically associated with greater body dissatisfaction, is a key stage for the development of risky eating behaviours, related both to uncontrolled restrictions on food intake- which may lead to the development of eating disorders- and with the stabilisation of overweight and obesity. The results obtained pointed out that those adolescents who feel more pleasure or enjoyment when eating. Having a healthy relationship with food, and this pleasure may be a possible protective factor against eating and weight-related disorders.

According to the researchers, consistent with recent prevention strategies, it is important to change the perspective on the enjoyment of food with respect to the prevention of obesity, banishing the idea that we should avoid the pleasure of eating. On the contrary: one should take advantage of it, and make food enjoyment- the ‘slow food movement’- a tool for healthy eating.

NASA Wants People on Mars Within 25 Years


Deadly radiation from the cosmos, potential vision loss, and atrophying bones are just some of the challenges scientists must overcome before any future astronaut can set foot on Mars, experts and top NASA officials said Tuesday.

The US space agency believes it can put humans on the Red Planet within 25 years, but the technological and medical hurdles are immense.

“The cost of solving those means that under current budgets, or slightly expanded budgets, it’s going to take about 25 years to solve those,” said former NASA astronaut Tom Jones, who flew on four space shuttle missions before retiring in 2001.

“We need to get started now on certain key technologies,” he told reporters in Washington.

At an average distance of about 140 million miles (225 million kilometres), Mars poses scientific problems an order of magnitude greater than anything encountered by the Apollo lunar missions.

With today’s rocket technology, it would take an astronaut up to nine months to reach Mars — the physical toll of floating that long in zero gravity would be huge.

For instance, scientists think prolonged weightlessness can cause irreversible changes to blood vessels in the retina, leading to vision degradation.

And after a while in zero G, the skeleton starts to leach calcium and bone mass.

With gravity only one-third of Earth’s, scientists don’t yet know the effects of a presumed one-year mission to the surface of Mars.

Better propulsion
One way to reduce wear and tear on the human body is to dramatically cut down on travel time to Mars.

Jones called for nuclear propulsion systems that would have the added benefit of producing electricity on flights.

“If we start now, in 25 years we might have these technologies available to help us and protect us from these long transit times,” he said.

Under current conditions, just an outbound trip to Mars would take so long that any astronaut would receive the same amount of radiation than ordinarily would be deemed safe over the course of an entire career.

“We don’t have the solution yet in terms of shielding, in terms of protecting you from cosmic rays and solar flares that you experience during this transit time,” Jones said.

Aerospace experts have identified several technologies that need rapid development, including spacecraft that can survive the harsh entry into Mars and land softly enough, as well as the ability to lift people off the surface and head back to Earth.

NASA currently has a new robotic lander called InSight zooming towards Mars, due to land on November 26 after taking off from California on May 5.

The $993 million (roughly Rs. 7,160 crores) project aims to expand human knowledge of interior conditions on Mars, inform efforts to send explorers there, and reveal how rocky planets like the Earth formed billions of years ago.

Jim Garvin, Chief Scientist at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, said InSight would fill in “critical unknowns” and help build a key understanding of Mars.

In 2020, another mission will see NASA send a rover to Mars that aims to determine the habitability of the Martian environment, search for signs of ancient life, and assess natural resources and hazards for future human explorers.

Additionally, private firms like SpaceX and a host of other nations are building technologies that could be used on future Mars missions.

Some experts see new exploration of the Moon as key to a future mission to Mars, as astronauts there could learn about extracting water or using technology and apply those lessons to future Mars missions.

12 People Killed On Railway Tracks In Mumbai In A Single Day: Police


3,014 people lost their lives in accidents on rail tracks in Mumbai in 2017 (File Photo)

Mumbai: 

As many as 12 people were killed and five others were injured in separate accidents on railway tracks in Mumbai and its neighbouring areas on Monday, the government railway police or GRP said today.

A railway official said that the deaths were due to people being run over by trains while crossing tracks, falling from overcrowded local trains, slipping into the gap between the train and the platform, and also committing suicide.

Three people each were killed on railway tracks in the neighbouring Thane district and its Kalyan town on Monday, while two persons died in Mumbai’s Wadala area, the railway police said in its daily report of deaths and injuries.

One person each died on railway tracks in Kurla, Mumbai Central and Bandra areas of the megacity, and Dombivali town of Thane, it stated, adding that all the deceased were men.

Although suburban railway is considered to be the lifeline of Mumbai, it is increasingly becoming a ‘death trap’ for commuters as 3,014 people lost their lives in accidents on rail tracks in the city in 2017, the railway police had said, responding to an RTI query earlier this year.

2 People In Madhya Pradesh Die Due To Zika Virus, 109 Affected In State


The virus has infected 109 people, out of which 34 are pregnant women, officials said.

New Delhi: 

Two persons, who tested positive for the Zika virus, died over the past 10 days in Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal district, officials said Tuesday, as the number people suffering from the disease mounted to 109 in the state.

The two people — an 18-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman — were suffering from the virus and other “serious” diseases. Therefore, it cannot be said they died due to Zika, they clarified.

“We cannot say these deaths were due to the Zika virus as both the deceased suffered from multiple serious ailments, besides having tested (positive) for Zika,” a senior Health Ministry official said.

The virus has infected 109 people, out of which 34 are pregnant women, the officials said.

On November 5, an 18-year-old man died due to septic shock. He was suffering from dengue and encephalitis with brain herniation, besides being tested positive for the Zika virus, they said.

In the second case, the 23-year-old woman, who also died due to septic shock, was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, besides the virus. She died in the first week of November, the officials said.

Both the deaths were reported from the state’s Bhopal district, the officials said.

People have tested positive for the Zika virus in seven districts of Madhya Pradesh. This includes 44 cases were reported from Bhopal, 20 from Sehore, 29 from Vidisha, two each from Sagar and Hoshangabad, and one each from Narsinghpur and Raisen.

On Tuesday, a central team was sent to the state to review the situation and assist the Madhya Pradesh government to replicate measures and the action plan implemented in Jaipur and Ahmedabad to contain the disease, the senior official said.

In India, the first outbreak of the Zika virus was reported in Ahmedabad in January 2017 and the second in Tamil Nadu’s Krishnagiri district in July that year. Both these outbreaks were successfully contained through intensive surveillance and vector management.

During the latest outbreak of the virus in the country, the first case surfaced on September 22, when an 85-year-old woman tested positive for the virus in Jaipur. Since then, the number of Zika cases have risen to 153 in Rajasthan.

In Madhya Pradesh an intensive screening exercise is being undertaken and vector control measures have been intensified. The government has also issued an advisory to district administrations to take steps to check mosquito breeding.

The state health department has advised pregnant women not to visit the affected areas.

The Zika virus, transmitted through the aedes aegypti mosquito, causes fever, skin rashes, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain.

It is harmful to pregnant women, as it can lead to microcephaly, a condition in which a baby’s head is significantly smaller than expected, in newborn children.

The disease is under surveillance of the Union Health Ministry although it is no longer a Public Health Emergency of International Concern under the WHO notification since November 18, 2016.

Lalu Prasad Greets People On Twitter On Chhath Puja


Lalu Prasad raved about the rich repertoire of folk songs associated with Chhath. (File)

Patna: 

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad today took to Twitter to greet people on the occasion of Chhath.

The former Bihar chief minister, who is serving sentences in a number of fodder scam cases, is currently undergoing treatment at a Ranchi hospital.

“Countless people have, while greeting me on the occasion of Chhath, credited me with having brought international recognition to this festival. I have only this to say to my well-wishers – this is all by virtue of you all. May Chhath Maiya bring peace and prosperity and fulfill all your wishes,” he tweeted.

His family has allegedly decided not to celebrate the festival this year following the decision of his elder son Tej Pratap Yadav seeking a divorce from his wife Aishwarya Rai.

However, making the announcement last week, RJD leader and Lalu Prasad’s close aide Bhola Yadav said Rabri Devi was not keeping well and the decision had nothing to do with her son’s marital discord.

In another tweet, Lalu Prasad raved about the rich repertoire of folk songs associated with Chhath and underscored that the festival was also about celebrating “dignity of woman, equality, social harmony and the conservation of eco-system and bio-diversity”.

Dantewada’s people cast their votes after threat from the Naxals to cut their fingers Chhattisgarh


नई दिल्ली: छत्तीसगढ़ में विधानसभा चुनाव के पहले चरण का मतदान 12 नवंबर को भारी सुरक्षा के बीच पूरा हुआ. इस चुनाव में लगभग 70 प्रतिशत मतदान रिकॉर्ड किया गया. इसी बीच दंतेवाड़ा में नक्सली धमकियों के बीच भी लोग वहां वोट डालने पहुंचे. दंतेवाड़ा के मडेंडा गांव के लोगों को नक्सलियों ने धमकी दी थी कि अगर उनकी उंगलियों पर स्याही के निशान देखे जाते हैं तो वे उन्हें काट देंगे. खतरे के बावजूद 263 मतदाता वोट डालने के लिए मतदाता सेंटर पहुंचे. 

ANI के मुताबिक, दंतेवाड़ा जिले में नक्सलियों ने मतदान को बाधित करने के लिए बारूदी सुरंग में विस्फोट किया. विस्फोट में किसी के हताहत होने की खबर नहीं है. राज्य के नक्सल प्रभावित क्षेत्रों में मतदान होने के कारण सुरक्षा के कड़े इंतजाम किए गए तथा सुरक्षा बल के लगभग सवा लाख जवानों को तैनात किया गया. पहले चरण में 18 सीटों पर मतदान हुआ. 

छत्‍तीसगढ़: जहां पहले सिर्फ 1 वोट पड़ा था, वहां शुरुआती 2 घंटे में 100 से ज्‍यादा वोट पड़े

दंतेवाड़ा सर्वाधिक नक्‍सल प्रभावित क्षेत्र है. यहां के किडरीरास में नक्‍सलियों ने चुनाव का बहिष्‍कार किया था और लोगों से वोट न डालने की चेतावनी दी थी. नक्सल प्रभावित अन्‍य इलाकों में भी मतदाताओं के बीच उत्‍साह देखने को मिला. कुन्ना, कुन्दनपाल, आरगट्टा जैसे इलाकों में मतदान केंद्र में मतदाताओं की लंबी कतारें लगीं. यहां प्रशासन की ओर से नक्‍सलियों के खिलाफ चलाए जा रहे स्वीप अभियान का असर बड़े स्‍तर पर देखने को मिल रहा है. 

छत्‍तीसगढ़ चुनाव 2018 : वोटिंग से पहले दंतेवाड़ा में नक्‍सलियों ने किया ब्‍लास्‍ट, पंडिपारा में बम बरामद

नक्‍सल प्रभावित सुकमा के दोरनापल के एक मतदान केंद्र में 100 वर्षीय बुजुर्ग महिला भी खुद चलकर मतदान करने आईं. इससे वहां मौजूद अन्‍य मतदाताओं में भी उत्‍साह बढ़ गया. छत्तीसगढ़ में दूसरे चरण के लिए 20 नवंबर को वोट डाले जाएंगे.
