Assembly Election Results 2017 – Saffron Holi. PM Narendra Modi Wave Lands BJP The Huge Uttar Pradesh Prize


Assembly Election Results 2017:Counting of vote for UP, Punjab, Manipur, Goa, Uttarakhand began at 8 am

NEW DELHI:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi has led the BJP to a massive victory in Uttar Pradesh, with the party now ahead in almost 300 of the state’s 403 seats. It needs 202 to form government. The BJP is also set to sweep neighbouring Uttarakhand. In Punjab, the Congress looks set to stage a comeback. Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party is likely to be the day’s biggest loser. Votes are being counted for assembly elections in five states today.

  1. Three hours into counting, the BJP had raced ahead in 306 seats in UP, a whopping gain of 257 seats over its tally of 48 in the 2012 assembly election. The Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance was a poor second, leading in 72 seats, down 181. Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party was leading only in 18 seats.
  2. In Punjab, the Congress was leading in 69 seats, up 23 seats from 2012. Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP was ahead in 26 seats in its debut election, and the incumbent Akali Dal-BJP is last with 21 seats, down 47. A party needs 59 seats for a majority in the 117-member Punjab assembly.
  3. The BJP and the Congress are neck-and-neck in Goa, but at 11 am trends were available only for 23 of the state’s 40 seats.
  4. In the hill state of Uttarakhand, the BJP has established an unassailable lead, ahead in 54 of the state’s 70 sets. If trends sustain, the party will get an absolute majority in the state. The Congress is leading only in 11 seats.
  5. The ruling Congress is leading in Manipur with 19 seats. The BJP is in second place with 14 seats. Trends were available for only 39 of the state’s 60 seats yet.
  6. The mega UP election, held in seven rounds, is seen as a bellwether for the 2019 national election. PM Modi was the face of the BJP’s campaign for the most important election he has faced since he led his party to victory in the 2014 national election.
  7. An outright win in UP will be an endorsement of the PM’s stewardship of the economy after his high-risk decision last November to scrap 500 and 1,000 rupee notes worth 86 per cent of the cash in circulation, aimed at eliminating corruption and black money. It will also improve the BJP’s strength in the Rajya Sabha or upper house of parliament where the government is in a minority and has trouble pushing legislation.
  8. UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, seeking a second straight term for his Samajwadi Party, partnered with the Congress in a strategy that failed.
  9. The Congress has done disastrously in recent elections and another string of losses today will raise more questions on the leadership of the party’s vice president Rahul Gandhi. A win in Punjab will be the best news the Congress will have heard for months.
  10. Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP had debuted in two states this year – Punjab and Goa – hoping to replicate its success in the Delhi assembly elections two years ago. AAP has not opened its account in Goa yet and is currently last in Punjab.


5 things you will understand if your passion becomes your job

imagesIt is a usual Monday morning. The clock strikes seven. Your alarm clock acts like the hostel’s old matron who just cannot see you sleep peacefully. Like most of the working population, you want to strangle that tiny little thing to death. You wake up and stare at the wall. You contemplate if you really need the job. This is a common morning scenario when you do not like your job. But, what happens when you have a job that you are passionate about? Let us see:

1) You do not need the snooze button

Waking up early is a task. For young adults who love to party after work, it gets even harder. But if you have a job that you are passionate about, you happily turn into an early bird. You cannot wait to get started on the day. Just like schooldays, when you would not sleep the night before for fear of missing the picnic! When the alarm goes off, you get going.

2) Goodbye Monday morning blues

For people who are passionate about their work, the Monday morning blues is an alien concept. You long to get back to work on a Monday morning. You tend to be as excited to go to work as one would be while going on the last day of the week. That is the magic of embracing your passion.

3) Overtime? Bring it on!

You fail to understand why your friends whine about putting in extra hours at work. You are almost unaffected by the clock hands. You do not mind working over the weekends either. In fact, you can happily plan your weekend around your work.

4) You have a clear career goal

Building a career is never easy. Yet, there are people who do it, for money or for an intangible, better future. But you do not have to worry much. You know what you want to do in life; you have a clear goal. There is no two ways about it. You invest all your time and effort in achieving this goal.

5) Honing skills

If you are passionate about your job, you find all the ways possible to grow and become better. So, there’s a good chance you are constantly on the lookout for new skills and knowledge. No one has to tell you to take new courses or learn new concepts. You are quite self-motivated in this case.

You spend around nine hours at work every day. To be productive, it is important that you enjoy what you do in those hours. This becomes possible when your passion becomes your job.

China to build first underwater platform in South China Sea


BEIJING: China will build its first long-term underwater observation platform in resource-rich South China Sea, where it has territorial disputes with many south-east Asian countries including Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam.

The platform aims to observe underwater conditions in real time.

“Construction work on the long-term observation platform covering key areas in the South China and East China seas will be done with the help of Shanghai’s Tongji University and the Institute of Acoustics,” Wang Pinxian, an academic at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) said.

Building the observation network showcases that China is actively joining in the international competition, Wang told scientific forum in Shanghai last Saturday, state-run Global Times reported.

Institute of Acoustics refused to reveal the exact location and further details of the researches on the platform due to its sensitive nature, it said.

China has maritime disputes in the South China Sea and East China Sea.

It claims almost all the waters, which carry a third of the world’s maritime traffic and has huge amounts of oil and natural gas BSE -0.15 %.

The waters are also claimed by the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan. China also contests Japan’s hold over the islands in the East China Sea.

Quoting a report from ‘sciencenet’, Global Times report said the observation platform will probe the undersea physical, chemical, and geological dynamics, and will also be used for other purposes.

At an offshore drilling project led by Chinese scientists, 33 scientists from 13 countries including the US, France, Italy and Japan left Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong on February 7 for the South China Sea.

The scientists have completed the first drilling task of the expedition to the South China Sea.

The first hole, identified as U1499A, has reached 3,770 meters below sea level, for collection of sediment samples, state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.

According to Sun Zhen of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, South China Sea Institute of Oceanology, chief scientist of the research expedition team, a preliminary lithologic study was conducted on sediment believed to have been formed eight million years ago.

The study will contribute to understanding how marginal basins grow.

A total of 66 scientists from 13 countries will participate in the expeditions, as part of the International Ocean Discovery Programme.


Jitu Rai wins bronze medal in ISSF World Cup


Jitu Rai (sports rediscovered Image)

NEW DELHI: Ace pistol shooter Jitu Rai staged a remarkable comeback to clinch the bronze medal in the 10m air pistol event for India’s fourth podium finish in the ongoing ISSF World Cup on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old shot a total of 216.7 in the eight-man final to finish third on the podium.

The Asian Games and World Championships silver-medallist was languishing at the seventh position after the end of the first competition series that included an 8.8.

But he clawed his way back with two 10.6 and a 10 in the second competition series. At the end of that series, Rai was placed sixth with a total of 98.7.

He managed to maintain the status quo even as the final entered the elimination stage at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range. He shot two 10s in the following shots to continue his gradual ascent.

The Army man roared back to contention with a couple of 10.6 and ensured a bronze with a 9.9, finishing ahead of China’s Zhanyi Xu (197.9).

With a lead of 0.1 point over Vietnam’s Xuang Vinh Hoang, Rai was in the hunt for a silver but an 8.6 meant he had to be content with the bronze.

The gold went to Japan’s Tomoyuki Matsuda with a world record total of 240.1 points, while Vietnam’s Xuan Vinh Hoang claimed silver with 236.6 points.

The other Indian shooters in the fray in the air pistol event — Omkar Singh and Amanpreet Singh — failed to cross the qualification stage.
