Telcos reluctant to bid for 5G spectrum on concerns of high prices

first_imgNew Delhi: Adding to the growing chorus for lowering of Trai-recommended rates, industry body COAI on Tuesday said its member companies have indicated reluctance in picking up 5G spectrum in the upcoming government-organised sale of radiowaves, concerned over high prices and less-then-adequate quantum. Cellular Operators’ Association of India (COAI) Director-General Rajan Mathews said there could be some takers for 4G spectrum in the auctions, which the government hopes to conduct in the current financial year. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”In spectrum auctions, for sub-1GHz, it is possible that someone might want to pick up some spectrum for 4G but 5G pricing is still the main challenge. Our members have indicated that at the current prices, it does not make sense to invest this kind of money,” Mathews said. On Monday, the Broadband India Forum (BIF) had claimed that radiowaves unsold in past auctions, because they were priced high, had an implication of Rs 5.4 lakh crore due to economic benefits lost, and that the government needs to ensure adequacy and “reasonable” rates for upcoming 5G auction. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostSpectrum price in India is, by far, the most important factor in determining the fate of an auction, its success or failure, BIF had said, adding that prices should trigger maximum sale and, hence, optimal realisation of direct and indirect benefits, and not be driven by short-term financial gains. The government in August-end invited bids for selection of agency that will conduct spectrum auctions in various bands, including 5G, — setting the stage for mega sale of over 8000 MHz of radiowaves, at a start price of over Rs 5.7 lakh crore. The deadline for submission of the bids by prospective auctioneers is September 25. But, the industry laments that the spectrum prices proposed in India are four times higher than other markets. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), in July this year, refused to budge on its recommendation on base price and valuation of spectrum, dashing hopes of financially-stressed companies such as Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea which had desired a lower base price. Trai had made it clear to the telecom department that it has considered “all relevant factors” while giving views on prices. COAI’s Mathews contended that not only is the price tag of spectrum working out to be expensive for the telecom industry, even the quantum of 5G radiowaves being put on the block is inadequate for three private operators, given that such services and applications would require at least 100 MHz of spectrum for each player. ptilast_img read more

TSB report cites fatigue in BC tug incident says mate asleep while

first_imgVICTORIA — The Transportation Safety board cites crew fatigue as a cause in a report involving a British Columbia tug that touched bottom while towing a barge loaded with cement south of Kitimat.The report says the vessel’s lone mate on watch duty fell asleep as the Ocean Monarch remained on auto pilot through Royal Channel’s confined waters.The board says there were no reports of injuries or pollution, but the tug’s hull and propeller sustained damage.The report says the tug’s operator had no strategies in place to mitigate a tired crew despite a previous occurrence in 2011 where fatigue played a role.The Transportation Safety Board has highlighted employee fatigue as a major safety hazard in the marine, rail and air transport industries.Last May, the board recommended mandatory fatigue-awareness education for vessel operators in a report on the sinking of the Nathan E. Stewart tug, which spilled about 110,000 litres of diesel into the water off B.C.’s central coast.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Barrackpore on edge Overactive Arjun Singh intimidates TMC supporters

first_imgKolkata: Voting in Barrackpore Lok Sabha constituency witnessed utter unruly behaviour on the part of BJP candidate Arjun Singh and his supporters throughout the day.The day began with Singh and his supporters chasing Trinamool Congress supporters with sticks near a booth at Mansatala Primary School in Kankinara. The Central Forces intervened and brought the situation under control. Soon after, Singh was involved in a scuffle with TMC supporters and the police at a booth in Mohanpur and sustained injuries on his lips. Singh again went to Kankinara where he faced agitation from TMC supporters who greeted him with “go-back” slogans. The personal security guards of Singh somehow managed to disperse the agitators. It was till 2 pm when Singh was seen near a number of booths at Jagaddal, Naihati, Halisahar. In the late afternoon when he went to Amdanga, he was chased by some TMC supporters after he allegedly tried to intimidate them. Singh lost his balance and fell on the ground and was somehow escorted away from the spot by his personal security guards. While Singh was over-active, TMC candidate Dinesh Trivedi was found in a relaxed mood. Trivedi was seen mainly in Bhatpara till 2 pm and in the late afternoon, tried his hands on cricket with a few children. “The common people have showed their anger against Singh through agitations wherever he went. Singh had tried to intimidate voters with his muscle power before the elections. I am hopeful that people of Barrackpore have vented out their rage against him and we would know when the ballot box is opened on May 23,” Trivedi said. Senior Trinamool Congress leader Firhad Hakim lashed out at Singh for demanding repoll in all the booths in Barrackpore. “Singh was seen resorting to hooliganism from the morning, knowing fully well that he will be facing defeat. The saffron party is making such hue and cry after each of the elections in an effort to disturb the peaceful polling in the state,” he added. Bhatpara is one of the Assembly constituencies under Barrackpore parliamentary constituency which was won by Arjun Singh with a Trinamool Congress ticket in 2016 Assembly polls. Singh joined the BJP and has been fielded by the saffron party against Trivedi. The latter had won the Barrackpore seat in the last Lok Sabha polls by a huge margin and the BJP had come third.last_img read more

Nuclear weapon States must cut arsenals US and Russia should lead UN

Lack of implementation by nuclear-weapon States of their commitments to work toward disarmament has also undermined their moral authority and left non-nuclear-weapon nations feeling frustrated and cheated, Hans Blix, the Chairman of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission told the Assembly’s First Committee yesterday.Had those commitments been kept, negotiations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and Iran would be less difficult, he added, but said that despite such issues the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) was not on the verge of collapse, although its safeguards needed strengthening.Mr. Blix, a former UN arms inspector for Iraq and ex-head of the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), also urged nuclear-weapon States to commit themselves to a policy of no first-use, and in particular for the United States and Russia to take their weapons off hair-trigger alert.The Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission was established on an initiative by the late Foreign Minister of Sweden, Anna Lindh, acting on a proposal by then UN Under-Secretary-General Jayantha Dhanapala. The Swedish Government invited Mr. Blix to set up and chair the Commission.Also addressing the First Committee, which covers disarmament and international security issues, was John Barrett, Chairman of the UN Group of Governmental Experts on Verification, and he spoke in relation to all forms of weapons: nuclear, radiological, chemical, biological and conventional. read more

Ban congratulates Donald Trump on his election as next US President

“I congratulate Mr. Donald Trump on his election as forty-fifth President of the United States of America,” Mr.Ban said this morning in a statement he read out to the press at the UN Headquarters in New York. “In the aftermath of a hard-fought and often-divisive campaign, it is worth recalling and reaffirming that the unity in diversity of the United States is one of the country’s greatest strengths. I encourage all Americans to stay true to that spirit,” he said. Noting that today’s global challenges demand concerted global action and joint solutions, the UN chief said: “As a founding member of the United Nations and permanent member of the Security Council, the United States is an essential actor across the international agenda. People everywhere look to the United States to use its remarkable power to help lift humanity up and to work for the common good.” “The United Nations will count on the new Administration to strengthen the bonds of international cooperation as we strive together to uphold shared ideals, combat climate change, advance human rights, promote mutual understanding and implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)to achieve lives of peace, prosperity and dignity for all,” Mr. Ban added. The Secretary-General stressed the need to mobilize around the principles and common values of the UN Charter more than ever. Mr. Ban expressed his deep appreciation to former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for a lifetime commitment to peace, the advancement of women and the well-being of children. “She has been a powerful global symbol of women’s empowerment, and I have no doubt that she will continue to contribute to our work across the world,” he said. read more

Tolvanen gets 1st NHL goal Predators beat Blackhawks 52

NASHVILLE — Eeli Tolvanen scored his first NHL goal and added an assist to lead the Nashville Predators to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.Craig Smith, Kevin Fiala and Ryan Johansen also each had a goal and an assist, and Austin Watson added an empty-netter for the Predators, who snapped a two-game skid. Pekka Rinne stopped 19 shots for the win.Brandon Saad and Artem Anisimov scored for Chicago, which has lost three straight. Cam Ward finished with 24 saves.Tolvanen, the 30th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, got his first goal 3 1/2 minutes into the game. On the left half wall, Smith sent a backhand pass to Tolvanen alone in the low slot, where he sent a backhand over Ward’s glove to push Nashville’s lead to 2-0.Tolvanen was recalled from Milwaukee of the AHL earlier Saturday after Filip Forsberg, the team’s leading goal scorer, was placed on Injured Reserve with an upper-body injury that will sideline the Swede for 4 to 6 weeks.Johansen’s power-play goal at 4:11 made it 3-0. Fiala attempted a wraparound on the right post but the puck sailed wide to Johansen positioned on the left post and he scored his fifth of the season.On a rare 7-minute power play for the Predators, the teams traded goals, with Saad scoring short-handed with 7:40 left and Smith on the power play with 6:25 remaining to make it 4-1.The lengthy man-advantage was a result of Duncan Keith being assessed 29 minutes in penalties, including a game misconduct, at 7:18 after taking exception to a check that Predators forward Miikka Salomaki delivered to him on the right boards.Anisimov scored the only goal of a relatively quiet second period. Brandon Manning drew three Predators to him in the left circle before firing a pass to an unchecked Anisimov in the slot, where he beat Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne on the glove side to pull Chicago within two.Watson added his empty-netter with 2:54 remaining in the third.Fiala scored the game’s first goal at 2:11 of the opening period. From the left point, Matt Irwin threw the puck into traffic in front of the Chicago net. In the low slot, Fiala grabbed the puck, spun around and beat Ward low on the stick side.NOTES: Nashville C Nick Bonino missed the game with illness. … Predators coach Peter Laviolette earned his 200th regular season victory with Nashville. … Predators C Anthony Richard made his NHL debut. … Nashville is 6-2-0 against fellow Central Division teams this season. … Chicago is 2-12-1 when giving up the first goal. ..

Digital Security Act could curb free speech

first_imgDigital Security ActPresident Abdul Hamid on Monday gave his assent to a controversial new law that media groups fear could cripple press freedom and curb free speech in the South Asian nation.Parliament passed the Digital Security Act on 19 Sept, combining the colonial-era Official Secrets Act with tough new provisions such as arrests without a warrant.”The president has given his assent to the Digital Security Act today, making it law,” his press secretary, Joynal Abedin, told Reuters.Last month, media groups cancelled protests against the law after the government promised to amend it. But their concerns were not addressed, said Manzurul Ahsan Bulbul, a former president of the Bangladesh Federal Journalist Union who took part in talks with the government.”We are frustrated as, during the meeting, we placed several proposals but none was reflected in the law,” he told Reuters. “Now we will see what the cabinet decides and accordingly will take action.”Abedin said the government could only consider amending the measure after it became law.”The law can be amended at any time if cabinet desires, so the journalist community need not to be worried,” Anisul Haq, the law minister, told Reuters.New York-based Human Rights Watch has called the law a “tool ripe for abuse and a clear violation of the country’s obligations under international law to protect free speech”.Opponents say the digital law is the latest authoritarian move by prime minister Sheikh Hasina, criticised for suppressing student protests in August and a war on drugs that has prompted accusations of extrajudicial killings by security forces, a charge the government denies.Hasina has defended the digital law as necessary to combat cyber crime.”The journalists are only thinking about their interest, not about society and only for that they are raising their voices,” Hasina said this week.Scores of people, including journalists, have been jailed for online criticism of the government since Hasina returned to power in 2009.The law has also drawn opposition internationally.The US ambassador to Bangladesh, Marcia Bernicat, said last month the “Digital Security Act could be used to suppress and criminalise free speech, all to the detriment of Bangladesh’s democracy, development and prosperity.”last_img read more

Cenote Kalimba closed after deaths of two German divers

first_imgTulum, Q.R. — Officers from Protección Civil Tulum have closed the cenote where two German men drowned Wednesday.After the bodies were recovered by a dive rescue team, Civil Protection proceeded to close Cenote Kalimba for operating without permits.Civil Protection head, Lucio Salvador Arguea, explained that the owner of the cenote, Armando García Hernández, does not have the permits or the security conditions for his operation which resulted in fatal consequences.“Cenote Kalimba operated illegally. The owner did not have registration or operating permits from city council. As background, in 2014 the death of a swimmer occurred, therefore it was closed and sanctioned,” he said.Photos: Protección Civil TulumAn investigation has begun against the owners and into the deaths of the divers who, Salvador Arguea says, were found 1,200 meters from the entrance. He added that there will be severe punishment against those who operate illegally and violate the Regulation of Cenotes and Caverns laws.“President Víctor Mas has told us that security is paramount. He is worried because he does not want more improvisations and situations that put people at risk. We have implemented actions with specialized and certified personnel to avoid putting swimmers and divers at risk,” he said.He said the cenote will remain closed until the Attorney General of the State issues the results of the investigations and the owner pays a fine, establishes the necessary safety conditions and properly registers Cenote Kalimba.Both men had arrived at the cenote from Playa del Carmen to explore the underground river system. On Wednesday afternoon, a dive rescue team was sent to into the river system to look for the bodies of the two German when when they failed to surface on time.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Chile Tourism anticipates additional benefits from football event

first_imgLuis Felipe Cespends, Minister of the Economy, Development and Tourism for Chile stated that over 70,000 foreigners who flocked to the country for the football competition Copa America is expected to spend more than USD 50 million. The Copa America is one of the most prestigious and the most widely viewed sporting event in the world.The estimation was declared by Chile’s Economy Minister who was joined by Tourism Undersecretary, Javiera Montes and Sernatur Director, Omar Hernández after launching the Ten Commandments of the Good Tourist, which seeks to encourage responsible tourism among both foreigners and nationals enjoying the football matches taking place in eight cities between June 11 and July 4, 2015.On this event, Minister Luis Felipe Céspedes declared, “This Copa America is a tremendous opportunity that will bring us a 30% increase in foreign tourist arrivals compared with June 2014.
