Google says it will not raise prices and that its engineers working with ITA’s engineers, instead of just the data they produce, will lead to an increase in innovation in travel technology. The US Department of Justice appears to have made a deal with Google that would allow it to acquire ITA Software, a company that provides airline data to travel search engines, for $700 million with a list of conditions.

Kolkata: Actor-turned-politician and founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam Kamal Haasan will campaign for the Trinamool Congress candidate of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Haasan announced the same after holding a meeting with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at Nabanna on Monday.”The meeting was excellent. Makkal Needhi Maiam is in alliance with Trinamool Congress for Andaman and we hope this special relationship will evolve in future. I am going to campaign for their candidate in Andaman and for this I am going there on April 6,” Haasan told reporters after his meeting with Banerjee that lasted more than an hour.

There will be a public meeting at Andaman in support of Trinamool’s candidate, which Haasan will address. On behalf of our party, Sujit Bose will be present,” Banerjee said. Trinamool Congress has nominated Ayaan Mondal to contest for the Lok Sabha seat in the islands. Mondal is the grandson of eight-time MP from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Manoranjan Bhakta, who had won on a Congress ticket. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayBishnu Pada Ray of BJP is the sitting MP of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. In 2014, he had won by a margin of 7,812 votes. When questioned whether Haasan will campaign for Trinamool in Bengal, he said: “I will consider this. But right now my hands are full. There are 40 seats in Tamil Nadu and my first concentration will be on that state. But my love for Bengal and Kerala will continue.” He also maintained that MNM is a small regional party and the alliance will be taken forward step-by-step, following discussions with the Chief Minister. It may be mentioned that Andaman and Nicobar Islands has only one Lok Sabha constituency, which represents the entire Union Territory. Haasan has recently proved himself to be a sharp critic of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling him a “rich man’s guard.”
Congress President Rahul Gandhi filed nomination papers to contest from the Wayanad constituency which on Thursday, turned into a ‘human sea’ with thousands lining up streets and crowding squares to catch a glimpse of Rahul accompanied by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Up north, in Amethi, BJP candidate Smriti Irani, looked like she was in breakheart pass, the limelight going south to bypass Wayanad, tri-junction Kerala-Karnataka-Tamil Nadu. As Gandhi family’s pocket borough Amethi loses some of its privileged sheen, Wayanad is where all eyes are set. People from not only Wayanad and the rest of Kerala but also denizens of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka thronged Rahul-Priyanka Road Show’s route, prefixed and affixed to Rahul’s bandwagon. Also Read – A special kind of bondBut does Rahul Gandhi know wild animals stalk the constituency? They come out of forest lairs and descend from mountain fastness to disturb humans bent to tasks in cleared forestland, once free-range for elephants and big cats. Rahul should know pioneer land-buyers, mostly Christian migrants from central Kerala, crowded wild animals into shrinking jungles and forced adivasis to make a hasty retreat early last century. Does Rahul Gandhi know ‘his’ constituency; if so, how well? Rahul is the sort of politician who surrounds himself with armchair experts. Mostly young, they campaign on Twitter, and voters of Wayanad are woeful twitter-warriors. But they know their pepper and their coffee beans, plantain and banana. Can he tell the difference? He’ll have to. Also Read – Insider threat managementThere is this reporter who writes, “In Wayanad, Rahul will be greeted not just by the ecstatic mob of Congressmen alone, but a motley crowd of grim-faced farmers and Adivasis as well.” Astounding reportage. How does this guy know beforehand it will be an “ecstatic mob” of Congressmen or a “motley crowd of grim-faced farmers and adivasis”? That said, it’s fact “farmers and adivasis” are the two big chunks of voters in Wayanad. They make up 40 per cent of Wayanad’s voters. The Wayanad farmer is affected by climate change, is victim of public and private moneylenders; is hit by the free-fall of farm-produce prices and dogged and dragged by wild animals, alpha-predators. The Wayanad adivasi is in no better shape. If anything, worse off. They fall squarely in Rahul’s ‘NYAY’ bracket. After the initial years of hard back-breaking work, the second and third generations of Wayanad-farmers lived well-off lives. Pepper, coffee and cardamom made them rich. They lived life king-sized. Then land got “raped” and the environment degraded. Prices of commercial crops crashed. Moneylenders took charge. Today, the farmers, nearly 21 per cent of Wayanad, are living on borrowed money and borrowed time. Will Rahul Gandhi be able to improve their lot if he doesn’t become Prime Minister? Last August’s floods left farmers devastated and depressed. Loan burdens, drought-like conditions, results of diminishing forests and ill-conceived tourism initiatives, left holes in the hilly terrain, green cover gone. Rahul Gandhi has his work cut out. He can start by giving a good read to the Madhav Gadgil report. Wayanad needs to strike a balance between human and wildlife. Road and rail connectivity ought to improve and environmental concerns should not be overlooked. Medical care for people should go hand in hand with education. Food security for the tribal and other poor should be guaranteed. Successive UDF governments did not do much for Wayanad, where’s the guarantee Rahul Gandhi will? Congress is a strong entity in the state. Even if he doesn’t become Prime Minister, he still can make a difference in the lives of the people of Wayanad. According to reports, Rahul is not that unfamiliar with Wayanad. He’s been in and out of the constituency before. The problem is that Rahul has a less than sterling record in Amethi. And Smriti Irani is hollering this “fact” from Amethi. Also, it wouldn’t be a cakewalk. The LDF and the BJP-BDJS combine, both, have Rahul Gandhi in their crosshairs. The state Congress unit has its task cut out. It cannot let Rahul Gandhi, Congress President no less, lose. Religious groups have a considerable say and sway in Kerala politics. Even atheist-communists like Pinarayi Vijayan and Prakash Karat understand which religious denominations ought to be courted, which should not be. Rahul Gandhi cannot wear the ‘Janeou’ over his kurta in Wayanad; that much is fait accompli. (The views expressed are strictly personal)
Gurugram: Deputy commissioner Amit Khatri held a meeting wherein strict instructions were given to ensure compliance with the Solid Waste Management Rules (2016) in Gurugram district.The directive was given to officials of the district urban local bodies (ULB) department, Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB), Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) and the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG). An MCG official present at all three meetings said that the tone of these meeting was urgent as the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had, last Tuesday, come down heavily on district authorities for unscientific management of waste at the Bandhwari landfill. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesKhatri instructed officials to ensure that all of the city’s bulk waste generators segregate waste on site and have their own composting units. He also instructed that this model should be replicated on an industrial scale for large manufacturing units as well as at a panchayat level throughout Gurugram district. MCG Commissioner Yashpal Yadav said that the MCG has already identified 1,800 bulk waste generators within its jurisdiction, including industries, RWAs, restaurants, hospitals and industrial units.

On the whole, we are aiming to reduce the amount of garbage sent to Bandhwari by 50 per cent by the end of 2019,” said Yashpal Yadav, the MCG Commissioner. At the meeting, MCG officials revealed that 1,936 shopkeepers selling goods in polythene had been invoiced over the past year, raising just over Rs16 lakh in fines. Confiscated and recycled plastic materials have also been collected for the purpose of building plastic-infused roads in the city, which should commence sometime late next month. The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has taken strict cognisance of the waste segregation system in Gururgam. The strict observation by the green court comes at a time when the recycling facilities in Bandhwari landfill site is yet to kick-off fully. Speaking on the issue Yashapal Yadav the MCG Commissioner said that they are in the process of implementing concrete plans with timelines so that the strategies can be implemented fully. At present, more than 1,000 tonnes of garbage from Gurugram and Faridabad is discarded daily at the area that is nestled in the green belt of Aravallis. Based on the proposal, the plant will treat more than 100 kiloliters of leachate daily.
Coming out of Trinity High School in Washington, Penn., senior Andrew Miller committed to Ohio State as a tight end prospect ranked 41st overall by rivals.com. By his junior year, Miller was starting at left tackle instead. “The coaches sat me down and said that the best position for my future, and the future of this team, was on the offensive line,” Miller said. “And it’s hard to say no to that.” Growing up in Pennsylvania, Miller’s mother Lynne Miller was leery of allowing her son to play football. In fact, it wasn’t until he was roughly 12 years old that he began to play football for the first time. “When he signed up for baseball, his baseball coach was the one who told him that he wanted Andrew to play on the football team,” Lynne said. “The football coach in our area, he used to go from door to door and recruit just like the big guys do. And Andrew wanted to play badly.” While Miller currently stands at 6-feet-6-inches tall and weighs in at almost 300 pounds, Lynne stressed that he’s always been bigger than most. “He was a lineman even back then,” Lynne said. “He was always much bigger than the average kid his age.” As a senior playing for Trinity High School, Miller was named to the all-Pennsylvania team. He caught 11 passes for 270 yards and four touchdowns. College football programs from all over the country were recruiting Miller. Offers were coming in from Penn State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Indiana, just to name a few. But when Miller finally had to make a decision about where he wanted to play, it was the last school that made a pitch to him that he decided to sign with. “I understood that OSU was a good football program, and I knew that I could be successful here with football,” Miller said. “Once I found out all of the other things like academics and how good the people are around here, there just wasn’t another choice for me.” “We went to see it, and it’s hard to turn your back on OSU,” Lynne said. “Not just the facilities but the people and the coaches. Every time we went to a campus we thought that it would be the one, but when we saw OSU, it was just above and beyond.” After working hard for two years, Miller was finally given the opportunity to start at left tackle in his junior year. Then, four games into the season, he came down with the flu and had to sit out games against Indiana and Wisconsin. Coming into this season, Miller had every intention of competing for a starting position on the line. Unfortunately, a left elbow injury kept him from displaying his full potential. “My elbow injury has been going on for so long that I can’t really sit here and dwell on it,” Miller said. “I don’t want to get it fixed and be out for a long time.” Injury or not, Miller has every intention of cracking the starting lineup before the season ends. “The goal is always to be a starter and I compete every single day,” Miller said. “I’m never going to submit. Everyone has their role on the team, but I don’t want to see myself as a role player who only comes in on jumbo packages. “But at the end of the day, I have however many games left here at OSU and I’m going to make the most of them.” Miller, who was a National Honor Society member in high school with a 3.99 grade point average, still dreams of playing professionally when he’s finished with school. But if it doesn’t work out, he has other career opportunities in mind. “If that (professional football) doesn’t work out, I’m going to pursue a career in sales,” Miller said. “And so I have a few leads in some medical fields, selling orthopedic and medical equipment, things of that nature.” Lynne believes that the key to her son’s success is a constant dedication to bettering himself. “Andrew is very disciplined,” Lynne said. “He always got his work done and he always planned ahead. I was always amazed. I would say ‘where did you get that from?’ I don’t know where he got it from because it wasn’t from me.”
Ohio State sophomore guard C.J. Jackson attempts a shot over Indiana’s Thomas Bryant on March 4 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorOhio State men’s basketball coach Thad Matta said the Buckeyes defense would have to be at an “all-time high” on Saturday against Indiana to close out the regular season with a win.It was quite the opposite.The Indiana Hoosiers (17-14, 7-11 Big Ten) made their first six shots and 13 of their first 15 en route to a 96-92 win over Ohio State on Senior Day at the Schottenstein Center. The Hoosiers shot 59 percent from the field and 65 percent in the first half.Indiana junior guard Robert Johnson led all scorers with 26 points and snapped his shooting slump by making 10-of-17 shots from the field, including 5 of 8 from 3.Sophomore center Thomas Bryant, redshirt junior guard Josh Newkirk and junior guard James Blackmon were also in double figures with 16, 18 and 22, respectively.Junior forward Jae’Sean Tate led the Buckeyes with 20 points. Sophomore guard C.J. Jackson, and sophomore guard JaQuan Lyle each had 18 points, while redshirt junior center Trevor Thompson added 19.“We scored 92 but they scored 96 so obviously we weren’t playing the defense that we play,” Tate said. “I’m more focused on the defense and giving up 96 points — unacceptable, especially 50-plus at half.”Johnson had been shooting 7 for 42 combined from 3 in his last eight games, but came out firing from the get-go. Johnson’s early offensive output severely dictated how the game was going to play out for the OSU defense.“We’re a get-well card for guys,” Matta said. “You’re struggling? Play Ohio State and you get out of your slump just like that. It’s been like that all year long.”From the tip, OSU was outpaced by the Indiana offense. Blackmon drilled a 3 to cap an 11-0 run in the first two minutes and 18 seconds. Indiana had scored 19 points by the first media timeout and led 32-15 at the under-12 timeout. The Hoosiers led 54-40 at the half.“It seemed like every shot they were taking was going in,” Tate said. “We knew they were a transition team and that killed us. We didn’t get back, build walls, stop the ball fast enough for them to run their half-court offense, and that was the game plan.”Matta called for a double team in the post when Bryant caught the ball, and even implemented a zone press on occasion to slow down the Indiana attack. Tate said that at halftime, OSU knew Indiana couldn’t continue to shoot the way it did in the first half.Sure enough, the Buckeye defense stepped up in the second half, allowing just four points from the 18:05 mark to 9:14 remaining. Starting with a layup from junior forward Jae’Sean Tate and a 3 by sophomore guard C.J. Jackson, the Buckeyes went on a 10-0 run before the first media timeout, cutting the deficit to four.Then, less than three minutes later, back-to-back 3s from senior guard Marc Loving and Jackson grabbed OSU its first lead of the game, 62-61.However, Blackmon ended that short-lived lead on the next possession with a 3 of his own. After a Tate layup tied the game at 64, Indiana’s shooting came to life with a 10-0 run. At the final media timeout, the Hoosiers led 84-74.“They were hitting tough shots, they were making 3s and that kind of killed us from there,” Jackson said.OSU continued to answer Indiana free throws with buckets of its own. Jackson made a shot from deep with 3.3 seconds remaining to cut the Hoosier lead to 94-92. But Blackmon was iced the game with two free throws with 2.7 seconds left.With the loss, OSU is now guaranteed to play on Wednesday at the Big Ten Tournament. If Nebraska beats Michigan at home on Sunday night, OSU will be the 12th seed and plays Penn State at 4:30 p.m. If Michigan wins, OSU will be the 11th seed against Rutgers at 7 p.m.“Every loss is going to not feel too good,” Tate said. “What’s done is done and we just got to prepare to make a run in the tournament.”
