People here want a local face, not a celebrity: Gugan Singh

first_imgA man with age over 70, clad in a yellow kurta is going door to door of every village house in North West Delhi. Once a BJP MLA, now AAP’s Lok Sabha candidate for North West Delhi, Gugan Singh Ranga talks exclusively to Sayantan Ghosh on his poll journey. North West Delhi this time has a tough fight like other seats, what are the issues you are focusing on? This is one of the most underdeveloped and neglected areas in Delhi. After the AAP government was formed, many development works were started. Now work on water pipelines and roads are going on everywhere. But the government has limitations in terms of lands, law and order, these are very big issues. The people have very less access to public amenities, here we need new colleges, universities and also engineering college but the state government does not have the power to do that. I am addressing these issue and telling people about why the AAP raised the demand of the full statehood. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesThis is a schedule caste seat and you yourself come from Jatav caste, how will this caste factor work in your favour? This is constitutionally an SC seat but the AAP is not doing any caste centric politics. I have a very good relationship with people of all the castes and even with upper caste people who live here. After the AAP came to power, we have worked for the development of every section of people. We have not done religious and caste-based politics, therefore, I have support from all the sections. It is bizarre that BJP has given the ticket to Hans Raj Hans who is not an SC but a Muslim. We have already put forward all the proofs of this illegal act by BJP. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarDelhi dehat as this area is known as is always considered as a place where poor people stay and in mainstream people do not talk about these areas much, how will you deal with these issues? This is the biggest pain of the people North West Delhi constituency. A person who resides in South Delhi is a resident of Delhi and a person from Narela is also a resident of Delhi but people call this area Delhi dehat which means rural Delhi or outer parts of Delhi. One of the major reasons for such perception is because these areas never got a leader who is connected to the ground. To represent the sentiment of these people, you need to walk through the villages of North West, you need to talk to the people, you should know what they are lacking and what they need. After AAP came to power, these areas started developing. I will represent this area to a larger platform and tell the people that this is as much Delhi as like any other section of the state. This time BJP candidate is a celebrity and in comparison, you are just a local face, how is this fight of global vs local? Here people want a face who understands their pain, their demands, their, struggle, their little emotions. These little emotions are very different from songs or cinema or limelight things. The emotions here are raw and connected to the ground, the only person who belongs to this place relate to these needs. Hans Raj Hans from BJP is a great singer and must be a great celebrity but people of this constituency know that he will never stay with them if he wins because his life is very different. But I stay here and always stayed here, served the people. I think that by giving the ticket to an outsider, BJP has made AAP’s chances brighter to win this seat. People of this constituency understand the motive of BJP and these old tricks will not work here.last_img read more

Ohio State mens womens basketball launch seasons at Carrier Classic

Some liken sporting events to wars and battles, but the USS Yorktown has seen and fought in the real thing. Sport will converge with the Yorktown, a decommissioned U.S. Navy aircraft carrier, when the Ohio State men’s and women’s basketball teams will open their 2012-13 seasons against Marquette and Notre Dame, respectively, Friday in the Carrier Classic. Friday’s games, which will take place on a court constructed on the Yorktown’s flight deck, bare no likeness to the battles the warship has seen. Still, OSU coach Thad Matta has an appreciation for the venue’s history. The OSU teams and their opponents’ stay on the ship will last for the duration of the 40-minute basketball games. Retired U.S. Navy Lt. Bob Dorsey, 73, of Milton, Fla., recalled that a typical stay as a sailor on the Yorktown was much longer. Unlike for the basketball teams, a “short” stay, or cruise, on the ship would last six to nine weeks. Long cruises could last six to nine months, and the cruises weren’t for basketball games or other forms of pleasure, but for war. Dorsey, a former helicopter pilot and President of the Yorktown Association, was stationed on the Yorktown from 1963-1966 and was twice deployed to Vietnam and the South China Sea. Following World War II, during which the ship faced bombings and other forms of heavy combat, the Yorktown was modified for rooting out the Soviet submarine threat during the Cold War. When it became evident that there was no threat of Soviet submarines in the seas near Vietnam, Dorsey’s mission changed, he said. “We were doing basic utility work, moving men and cargo from different ships in the South China Sea,” Dorsey said. “We were also doing what was considered coastal surveillance. They would send us out to investigate various shipboard targets that they would pick up on our radar and we would fly out to sea if there was a threat. And so that was our primary mission.” Then, the mission changed again once Vietnam “was going pretty big,” Dorsey said. “A lot of (planes) got shot down, so our mission really changed to being combat rescue,” Dorsey said. “During all that time, we never lost a single helicopter due to combat loss, which was pretty spectacular.” And there were many missions that launched on the sea and saw Dorsey and other members of America venture into Vietnamese airspace. The missions, while thrilling, Dorsey said, were exceedingly dangerous and included night missions at low altitude. “You know, flying off an aircraft carrier is probably one of the most exciting things most people ever do, and I thoroughly enjoyed it,” Dorsey said. “We did a lot of night flying, which was fairly dangerous … generally, helicopters were limited to a maximum altitude of 200 feet. So on a dark night at 200-feet, you really better pay attention.” Obviously, OSU won’t face dangers like what Dorsey saw. The biggest risk the two Buckeyes’ squads run on Friday is starting their respective seasons with a loss. For the men’s team, it would be the first opening-game loss since a 76-65 defeat to San Francisco on Nov. 21, 2003. OSU women’s coach Jim Foster has never lost a season opener since arriving in Columbus for the 2002-03 campaign. Given the Buckeyes teams’ history of opening-night success, some fans in Columbus might be disappointed to miss the opener. The Carrier Classic will take place in Charleston, S.C., some 10 hours from Columbus by car. Buckeye Nation will get to see its team play live at the Schottenstein Center again, though. They will return home. In combat on the Yorktown, Dorsey obviously couldn’t make the same guarantee. “As Navy sailors do,” Dorsey said, “you tell your family, ‘Goodbye. I’ll see you when I get back.’” Matta conveyed appreciation for the sacrifice of the Yorktown’s crews during OSU’s Oct. 11 media day. “(The Carrier Classic is) something that these young men, for the rest of their lives, will remember,” Matta said. “Obviously I want to win the basketball game, but that is one game that is more than the game of basketball. People forget we got guys fighting the war for us right now.” OSU women’s basketball is scheduled to tip off its Carrier Classic game against Notre Dame at 4 p.m. on Friday. The OSU men will tip off against Marquette at 7 p.m. Yorktown takes a starring role The Yorktown has enjoyed Hollywood limelight in her day, having served at the movie set for the movies “The Fighting Lady” and “Tora! Tora! Tora!” (1970). She was also featured in the TV series “Get Smart” (1968) and on the SyFy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters” (2012). Yorktown aids in space exploration On Dec. 27, 1968, the Yorktown recovered the astronauts aboard NASA’s Apollo 8 spacecraft, the first manned spacecraft to travel to the vicinity of Earth’s moon and return safely, according to a Carrier Classic release. Apollo 8 Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders splashed down in the Pacific Ocean before a Yorktown helicopter arrived to scoop the astronauts out of the ocean.

You are not alone Suicide Awareness And Prevention

first_imgIn addition, KPBSD was awarded a three year Suicide Awareness, Prevention and Postvention (SAPP) grant from the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development. The three year grant proposal targets high risk populations of students in grades 7-12 at Homer Flex, Marathon School, and Kenai Alternative School. And, in year two and three of the grant, additional KPBSD middle and high schools. One of the organizations seeking to offer resources to those in need is within the Kenai Peninsula  Borough School District. The district launched the “You are not alone” suicide awareness and prevention program. More than one thousand students from Kenai Central High School, Kenai Middle School, Nikiski Middle-High School, Skyview Middle School, Soldotna Prep, and Soldotna High School attended assemblies about suicide awareness. Student leaders at KCHS received additional training about suicide awareness. Everyone received yellow wristbands with a Care line that anyone can call, anytime: 877-266-HELP. Another program offered by the district is Sources of Strength. “While suicide is sometimes a difficult topic to discuss, it is also paramount that we as a community address it head on,” said Sean Dusek, superintendent. “Programs such as Sources of Strength are critical components of our commitment and dedication to support our students through the myriad of issues they may experience throughout their lives.”center_img Mental health conditions are often seen as the cause of suicide, but suicide is rarely caused by any single factor. Many people who die by suicide are not known to have a diagnosed mental health condition at the time of death. Problems contributing to suicides include stresses over relationships, housing, money, health, employment, substance abuse, or legal woes. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享As suicide rates continue to increase across the United States and on the Kenai Peninsula, multiple programs and organizations seek to raise awareness about the trend and offer resources to those who need it. Students learned that many people think that openly talking about suicide raises the risk. The fact is that asking someone directly usually lowers their anxiety, opens up lines of communication, and also lowers the risk of an impulsive act.last_img read more
