Saturday Tehran:Iran’s supreme leader on Thursday slammed the new US sanctions on Tehran signed by President Donald Trump the previous day and vowed his country would continue its missile program despite international pressure Washington will "use any excuse to make a fuss" against Iransaid Ayatollah Ali Khamenei speaking at a ceremony marking the formal endorsement of President Hassan Rouhani for his second term in office File image of Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei AP "You launch a satellite-carrying missile they make noise" he said describing the Iranian launch as a "scientific and technical job that is routine and necessary" "The response to the hostility is to become stronger" Khamenei added and described the US government as "the top aggressor and the most shameless "enemy of Iran "Some have sharply applied hostility (against Iran) like those who today are in office in the US" Khamenei said without mentioning Trump or the US president’s signing of the legislation on Wednesday The law also imposed new sanctions on Russia and North Korea According to a letter sent to the UN Security Council and obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press the United States and three Western allies called Iran’srecent launch of a satellite-carrying rocket "a threatening and provocative step" that is "inconsistent" with a UN resolution endorsing the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers Iran last week launched the country’s most advanced satellite-carrying rocket into space marking the most significant step forward for the Islamic State’s young space program In the letter to the Security Council the US France Germany and the United Kingdom complained that the Simorgh space launch vehicle if configured as a ballistic missile would have the range and "payload capacity to carry a nuclear warhead" Iran maintains the 2015 nuclear deal that put caps on its uranium enrichment program — a possible pathway to nuclear weapons — and the Security Council resolution

the sanctions and enmities the Islamic Republic is stronger" than before Rouhani who will be formally sworn into office on Saturday in parliament said the nuclear deal has been a sign of "good faith" by Iranand that t brought the nation respite from most difficult UN sanctions "Transition from the most difficult sanctions was achieved through a combination of the power of diplomacy and deterrent defensive power" said Rouhani He said that in his second term in office Iranwill "insist on constructive engagement with the world more than before" Earlier Thursday the state TV website quoted deputy foreign minister and senior nuclear negotiator Abbas Araghchi as saying that Iranwill come up with a "smart" reaction to the last US sanctions Araghchi reiterated Iran’sstance that the US legislation signed by Trump amounts to a "hostile" breach of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal Tehran has prepared measures that Iranwould take against the US action he added without elaborating except to say some of the measures will "improve" Iran’sarmed forces The US legislation imposes mandatory penalties on people involved in Iran’sballistic missile program and anyone who does business with them It would

prepared to even countenance the suggestion she could potentially meet younger sister Serena in the Australian Open final after she advanced to the quarter-finals with a 6-3 7-5 victory over Mona Barthel on Sunday The 13th-seeded Venus had some struggles against the German qualifier but clinched the crucial points to advance to a last eight clash with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova India vs England live score Serena who has won 22 grand slam titles to her sister’s seven is on the other side of the draw and faces Barbora Strycova in their fourth round clash on Monday and has looked the most comfortable of the players left in the tournament As such a potential ninth showdown in a grand slam final and second at Melbourne Park between the American sisters could potentially be on the cards though Venus sidestepped the question after her victory over Barthel “That could hopefully happen” the 36-year-old Venus said when asked of the possibility “We both still have to work very hard to get there “Today I played a qualifier and she hardly ever missed So it doesn’t matter who you come up against they are coming and they want to win too They have nothing to lose “I’m going to be focused on winning one round at a time and focus on doing what it takes to be there” Williams made a fast start against Barthel as she raced out to a 3-0 lead but the 181st-ranked German fought back with the American having trouble with her ball toss at the northern end of the court as she looked directly into the sun Barthel broke twice to give her the opportunity at 4-3 to get back on serve but Williams capitalised on the German also having trouble with the sun to break back then served out from the Yarra River end to clinch the first set in 42 minutes The second set went on serve until the 11th game when Williams broke for the first time in the set then despite serving from the northern end clinched victory in 96 minutes “It was pretty rough It’s not easy serving in the sun” she said “The cycle of the sun is different here “Normally you’re not serving in the sun in quite the same way as other places so it’s an adjustment” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top

dispute with California and agreed to pay nearly USD 22000 The 70-year-old “Magnum PI” actor has paid the amount after Calleguas Municipal Water District filed a legal complaint accusing him of having water from a fire hydrant in Thousand Oaks illegally delivered to his 60-acre estate in Hidden Valley outside the service area reported Ace Showbiz “Mr Selleck did not receive any notifications prior to last week stating that he was acting outside of regulations decreed by the county” his lawyer Marty Singer stated “Mr Selleck previously paid for all the water that he utilized which the Calleguas Municipal Water District acknowledged had not been stolen” The water district argues that the delivery whether it was paid or not remained illegal because it was made outside legal boundaries Thomas Slosson president of the district said “Residents and businesses within the district – the rightful users of district water – paid for the construction maintenance and operation of the public works necessary to meet their water needs not those of other landowners outside Calleguas’ legal boundaries” The settlement money an exact amount of USD 2168555 from Selleck is to cover the bill of a private investigator hired by the district to probe into the case It’s revealed that the water deliveries to his ranch happened numerous times between 2013 and 2015 during an ongoing drought that has

(Driving under influence) Section 341 (Wrongful restraint) Chandigarh Police received a lot of flak for going easy on the political leader’s son and now they are taking additional measures to prove otherwise With the central and state governments and even the National Green Tribunal (NGT) coming down heavily on stubble-burning in Punjab and Haryana farmers in both the states say they have few options available to avoid burning the crop residue With a bumper paddy crop expected in the two agrarian states this kharif season — likely in excess of 225 million tonnes — the crop residue that will be burnt by farmers to prepare their land for the next crop sowing will be phenomenal Punjab is expecting to procure over 18 million tonnes of paddy this season The central and state governments in recent years have tried several steps — from warning farmers to registering cases against them to creating awareness on stubble-burning — but nothing seems to be working The burning of the crop residue leading to pollution and even smog over northern India in the winter months has serious health implications for the people "Most farmers are not well off They cannot adopt the scientific and technological methods being suggested as it costs money They have no option but to burn the residue to clear their agricultural fields and be ready for sowing the next crop" farmer Gurmel Singh of Fatehgarh Sahib district said Crop burning in Punjab Representational image Reuters Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has ruled out confronting the farmers on the issue saying his government "would not add to the financial burden of the beleaguered farmers many of whom are committing suicide due to economic hardship" "While we are committed to environmental protection we would not pressurise the farmers in the process of implementing the ban on burning of paddy residue There is no question of penalising the farmers who can barely make both ends meet" Amarinder said adding that the law and order machinery was not adequate to solve the problem which required collective efforts by the central and state governments for a meaningful resolution The Punjab government has asked the union ministries of finance and agriculture to compensate the farmers at Rs 100 per quintal over and above the MSP (minimum support price for crop) to dissuade them from burning the stubble "Though there is a lot of talk of machines that could manage stubble in the fields those are futuristic plans which do not resolve the immediate problem" the chief minister pointed out adding that the problem was of gigantic proportions in Punjab where almost one farmer’s death was being reported every day due to financial issues Punjab with just 154 per cent of the country’s geographical area contributes 50 per cent of foodgrain (wheat and paddy) to the national kitty As per Punjab government estimates there are over 175 million farmers in the state which has a population of 28 million "With 75 per cent of the 197 million tonnes of paddy straw generated in Punjab every year the problem has assumed dangerous proportions leading to loss of organic material for soil degradation of air quality and high SPM levels Of the total paddy straw only 218 per cent is consumed in biomass-based projects paper/cardboard mills and animal fodder/other uses while a small portion is managed through other systems such as machinery and equipment" a recent Punjab government report had pointed out Punjab’s Science and Technology Department has suggested managing the remaining 1540 million tonnes per year of paddy residue through crop diversification straw management equipment and industrial use But all these steps require significant investment At the same time the Punjab government has taken several steps to strengthen the legal framework to control the problem The state had in 2013 issued orders under Section 19(5) of the Air Act 1981 banning the burning of all kinds of crop residue All Deputy Commissioners have issued orders banning the burning of wheat straw and other residue in their districts Village panchayats have also been directed to pass resolutions that crop residue will not be burnt and in case of violation the person would not be eligible for auction of panchayat land the following year A major campaign has also been launched to create awareness among the farmers about the ill-effects of stubble-burning Steps are also being taken to monitor instances of stubble burning with the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) engaging the Punjab Remote Sensing Centre Ludhiana to deliver real-time information about fire incidents During the wheat harvesting season earlier this year Rs 6147 lakh in fines was imposed on farmers involved in 10905 incidents of stubble-burning The money is yet to be recovered from the erring farmers In neighbouring Haryana Chief Secretary DS Dhesi has directed officers to run a special campaign to generate awareness among the people against burning crop stubble — and deal strictly with those found doing so Dhesi said that for the first time assistance of sarpanches of gram panchayats would be sought to make people aware about the disadvantages of burning crop stubble and they would be made answerable Panaji: Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on Saturday alleged that "huge funds" collected by the RSS on the occasion of Guru Purnima were unaccounted as many organisations which owe affiliation to it are unregistered Congress leader Digvijaya Singh PTI "They (the RSS) collect huge funds on Guru Purima which is unaccounted How much money comes as ‘Guru Dakshina’ to the RSS. has it ever been accounted for" Singh who is also party incharge of Goa said at a press conference at the Congress state headquarters here He also said that several organisations which owe affiliation to the RSS were unregistered and therefore it was difficult to track down the money collected "The unregistered organisations of RSS do not come under any act Where does all this Guru Dakshina money go This is something which the RSS must let us know" he said By: AP | San Francisco | Published: December 14 2016 12:22 pm The self-driving car project that Google started seven years ago has grown into a company called Waymo Related News The self-driving car project that Google started seven years ago has grown into a company called Waymo signaling its confidence that it will be able to bring robot-controlled vehicles to the masses within the next few years “We are getting close and we are getting ready” Waymo CEO John Krafcik said Tuesday after unveiling the company’s identity To underscore his point Krafcik revealed the project had hit a key milestone in the journey to having fully autonomous cars cruising around public roads In a trip taken in October 2015 a pod-like car with no steering wheel and brake pads drove a legally blind passenger around neighborhoods in Austin Texas without another human in the vehicle Also Read:Self-driving cars: California opens pathway for cars that lack steering wheel It marked the first time one of the project’s cars had given a passenger a ride without a human on hand to take control of a self-driving car if something went wrong Krafcik called that trip taken by Steve Mahan former director of the Santa Clara Valley Blind Center an “inflection point” in the development of self-driving cars It came a year before a Budweiser beer truck equipped with self-driving technology owned by ride-hailing service Uber completed a 120-mile trip through Colorado while being steered by a robot while a human sat in the back of trailer In doing so Krafcik and other supporters of self-driving cars believe the technology will drastically reduce the number of deaths on the roads each year because they contend robots don’t get distracted or drunk nor ignore the rules of the road like humans do While Google’s self-driving cars were still in the research-and-development stage its leaders indicated the vehicles would be commonplace by 2020 Krafcik declined to update the timetable Tuesday saying only that “we are close to bringing this to a lot of people” Also Read:Full autonomy not possible in self-driving cars: Gartner Waymo’s transition from what once was viewed as a longshot experiment to a full-fledged company marks another step in an effort to revolutionize the way people get around Instead of driving themselves and having to find a place to park people will be chauffeured in robot-controlled vehicles if Waymo automakers and Uber realise their vision within the next few years Waymo’s name is meant to be shorthand for “a new way forward in mobility” The newly minted company will operate within Google’s parent company Alphabet which was created last year to oversee far-flung projects that have nothing to do with Google’s main business of online search and advertising Those projects which Alphabet CEO Larry Page likens to “moonshots” have lost $8 billion since 2014 with the research into self-driving cars accounting for a significant chunk of that amount Google began working on its self-driving technology in 2009 in a secretive lab called “X” run by company co-founder Sergey Brin Since then its fleet of cars has covered more than 23 million miles in the San Francisco Bay Area Austin Arizona and Washington state In their travels the self-driving vehicles have been involved in 35 traffic accidents Google has said its self-driving vehicles were at fault in only one collision with a bus earlier this year Also Read:Google’s self-driving car meets with its first serious accident The self-driving project had been expected to be spun out of the X lab since Krafcik a former Hyundai USA executive was hired as its CEO 15 months ago As its own company Waymo will now face more pressure to generate a profit under Alphabet’s management instead of simply focusing on research Rather than make its own cars Waymo intends to license its technology to traditional automakers and trucking companies “We are not in the business of making better cars” Krafcik said “We are in the business of making better drivers” Earlier this year Waymo’s precursor licensed its self-driving technology to Fiat Chrysler for 100 Pacifica minivans currently in production Financial terms of that deal haven’t been disclosed The pressure to make money risks alienating some of the engineers who worked on the self-driving cars as a project that didn’t have a mandate to turn a profit As it headed down the road to becoming Waymo several key players quit the project The defectors included its former director Chris Urmson and a co-founder Anthony Levandowski who is now working on self-driving technology for Uber For all the
