Image Courtesy: AALEver wondered how monster trucks are transported from one place to another? Well, it takes another type of a monster. Thirteen enormous haulage trucks were recently shipped on a heavy lift vessel owned by Singapore-based multipurpose operator AAL Shipping from Laem Chabang Port in Thailand to the Port of Nakhodka in southeast Russia.Intended for Siberian mining project, these truck units – each over fourteen meters in length, weighing 170 million tons – were transported on the 19,000 dwt AAL Dampier, on behalf of Freightplus. Built in 2011, AAL Dampier features a length of 149 meters and a width of 23.4 meters.“We were delighted … to have successfully completed the delivery of this important cargo ahead of schedule. The crane capacity of our S-Class fleet came into its own, giving Freightplus the assurance that each 170mt truck could be lifted, stowed and discharged at Nakhodka terminal without any reach issues,” Namir Khanbabi, Managing Director of AAL’s Tramp & Projects Division, commented.AAL said it has the sector’s youngest fleet of the new generation and “technologically advanced” multipurpose heavy lift vessels. The AAL Dampier is part of AAL’s owned 19,000 dwt ‘S-Class’ fleet, with each vessel featuring a combined lifting capacity of 700 million tons.“These highly versatile vessels are designed to load and transport all manner of industrial and commercial heavy-lift and dry bulk cargo to and from the busiest, or most remote, ports around the world,” according to AAL.Video Courtesy: AAL
Daryl Farmer, 39, from West Sussex in England, will be attempting to set a world record by rowing single-handed 2,100 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean from California to Hawaii as a competitor in the first Great Pacific Race which begins in Monterey, US, in June this year.Peter Andre with Daryl FarmerFewer people have rowed solo across the Pacific Ocean than have walked on the moon. The current record for this particular ocean rowing route is held by Mick Bird, who rowed it single-handed in 1997 in a time of 64 days. Daryl, rowing under the name of ‘Rowing 4 Reefs’, is no stranger to taking on incredible challenges having completed both the Marathon de Sables (150 miles across the Sahara) and the Jungle Marathon (140 miles through the Amazon rainforest). Now, inspired by other adventurers like single-handed rower Roz Savage MBE, and James Cracknell amongst others, and committed to raising funds for the Peter Andre Foundation, supporting Cancer Research UK, and for ocean conservation organisation, Earthrace, he has his sights set out to sea.Daryl Farmer in Bojanges Rowing 4 ReefsDaryl’s boat, ‘Bojangles’, is made from a special carbon/Kevlar foam sandwich construction and was built with the Pacific in mind. She is one of the strongest, most proven and sought-after ocean rowing boats in the world, already in the record books as the first and only rowing boat to successfully complete a crossing of the Pacific West to East with its crew of Mick Dawson and Chris Martin (Race Director, Great Pacific Race) in 2009.Peter Andre, speaking about Daryl’s challenge, said: “I just want to say that I think he is doing an amazing thing by rowing solo across the Pacific Ocean to raise funds for my Foundation and Cancer Research UK. This cause has now become dear to my heart so I support him all the way.”Pete Bethune, founder of Earthrace Conservation, current world powerboat speed record holder for circumnavigating the globe and one of the stars of Animal Planet’s ‘Whale Wars’, said: “In Earthrace in 2008, we managed 23,497 nautical miles in 60 days 23 hours 49 minutes. Believe me, Earthrace was not a comfortable boat to be in, stripped down for speed as she was. However, at least our remarkable engines did most of the work and I wasn’t on my own.“Daryl is rowing over 2,000 nautical miles single-handed across one of the most unpredictable and dangerous oceans in the world. That he is doing this to raise money and awareness for issues that I also feel very strongly about such as shark finning, ocean acidification and whale and dolphin hunting only increases my admiration for this crazy Brit”.Daryl Farmer said, “I’m delighted to have the support of Peter Andre and the Cancer Research UK team as well as Pete Bethune and the Earthrace crew. This will be an enormous challenge for me personally, but preparations are going well, I’m race fit and so is the boat. I’m passionate about both the causes I am supporting and that will keep me rowing even if the going gets rough. I’m looking forward to the start now and am determined to get to the finish successfully in record time.”There are 15 boats and 38 competitors in all taking part in the Great Pacific Race which begins in June this year with crews from nine different countries including the UK, US, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, Canada, France and Ireland. A variety of sponsorship packages are available with benefits including branding on Bojangles, and full involvement in all media opportunities including start and finish.Rowing4Reefs is a small and friendly team of professionals who are determined to make all partnerships work for everyone concerned.

There’s almost always a reason for photographs — an engagement , wedding, graduation, pregnancy, you name it.For many of these occasions, you’ll want a professional on hand who can do more than add a fancy filter to an ordinary snapshot.But hiring a photographer to capture life’s important milestones can be pretty pricey. Here’s how to cut down on the cost of a professional without sacrificing quality.SNAP UP SOCIAL MEDIA SAVINGS“My number one tip would be to ask social media,” says John Myers, owner of John Myers Photography & Videography in Tennessee.Go to Facebook or Instagram to ask for recommendations from friends and followers. “It’s a great way for you to get a lot of options, and then from there you can sift through what’s your ideal budget, style (and) availability,” he says.Then, find and follow the pages of photographers you like, much as you would follow a retailer or restaurant. You’ll likely stumble across deals and exclusive offers. Myers, for example, said he recently ran a free engagement photo session contest on Instagram.ZERO IN ON A ‘MINI-SESSION’Another money-saving strategy is to look for a photographer who offers “mini-sessions,” which are shorter or smaller versions of full shoots. This shorter session may last 20 to 30 minutes and result in 20 to 30 photos, whereas a normal portrait session may take 60 to 90 minutes and result in 60 to 70 images, Myers says.“There are photographers who offer mini-sessions, and those usually occur in the busier time of the year,” Myers says. “At least in the Southwest and some other places, spring and fall are kind of the popular times to do these because the weather is perfect.”For example, Myers estimates a photographer who offers a mini-session for an engagement may charge around $200 or $250, compared with $600 for a regular session. The tradeoff? You’ll have a shorter shooting time and get fewer images. But you might pay about a third of the usual price.GET A WIDER ANGLEKeep your options open beyond the first few photographers you find.“The photographers who can afford to advertise are usually the ones who are charging more money,” says Maddie Eisenhart, a retired wedding photographer and chief revenue officer at the website A Practical Wedding.“The people that you see a lot are generally going to be a little bit more expensive,” she says. “There are a lot of wedding photographers who are really talented who maybe aren’t the most skilled at blogging or getting their web presence out there.”Eisenhart recommends relying on word of mouth to find these photographers. Or look at photos from weddings and other events on wedding websites or social media. When you find a photography style you like, get the name of the photographer.Widening your search also means being open to choosing less popular days and times. Myers says you can likely find discounts if you pick “friendly dates” when photographers have better availability.For example, since Saturdays are the busiest days for weddings, weekday ceremonies are usually more appealing for photographers.“If you’re getting married on a Thursday,” Myers says, “you will see us fall over ourselves to try to shoot your wedding.”SEE THE PRICE IN BLACK AND WHITEDon’t forget the fine print. Before you agree to a photographer or pay anything, make sure you know the final price and exactly what you’re going to get. Eisenhart says to always have a contract — and to read it in its entirety.She also advises looking through the photographer’s gallery. For a wedding, look at a complete album, as opposed to a handful of highlights. You don’t want to waste your money on a photographer who only manages to take a few good pictures for the whole event.Ask questions such as: How many hours will the shoot take? Can you limit the number of hours the photographer is on site to cut down on the price? What will be done to the pictures after the shoot?“Be sure to inquire about what treatments the photographer will add to the images, such as sepia tones, multiple exposures and split frames,” Andie Fowler, editor for The Bash, a party planning site, said in an email. “All of these extras can add up quickly.”____________________________________This column was provided to The Associated Press by the personal finance website NerdWallet.

Although the youngest athlete competing in Rio is 13-year-old Gaurika Singh, a swimmer representing Nepal, gymnastics is unique for its high concentration of teenage girls. This year, 16.8 percent of gymnasts are younger than 18, and all of those young athletes are women. Swimming has a higher total number of competitors under 18, but that group makes up only 9.1 percent of the field. That doesn’t mean there aren’t exceptions. Oksana Chusovitina, a 41-year-old from Uzbekistan, is competing in her seventh Olympics, making her the oldest female gymnast in Olympic history. Chusovitina will compete in the vault finals on Sunday.What about the other end of the age spectrum, where I might have a chance? With a median age of 36, equestrians are the oldest Olympians. More sedate sports also tend to have older athletes; golf and shooting are near the top of the list. Beach volleyball, tennis and cycling also have older competitors.The prize for the oldest Olympian in Rio goes to 62-year-old Julie Brougham, a rider from New Zealand who is attending her first Olympics. Brougham had her Olympic debut Wednesday, in individual dressage. But Brougham isn’t the only athlete in Rio who has lived at least six decades. There are four other Olympians who are 60 or older, all of whom are competing in equestrian events. Still, equestrian is not dominated by older competitors: Among Olympic sports, it has one of the widest distribution of ages, with athletes that range in age over a 44-year span. As I expected, gymnasts are among the youngest Olympians. Of all the groups I looked at, women’s artistic gymnastics (the “regular” gymnastics)2There are two other categories of gymnastics at the Olympics: trampoline and rhythmic. has the lowest median age — 19. That puts Biles in the very middle of her peers. Also, artistic gymnastics (along with golf) has the largest gap between the median ages of men and women participants — five years. That’s because of the sport’s high number of women and girls under 20. It’s not age holding me back from being an Olympian. If I want a shot at gold in 2056, I had better go find a horse. We’re on the ground in Rio covering the 2016 Summer Olympics. Check out all our coverage here.Most adults probably feel as though they missed their chance at making it to the Olympics. Even at 24, I feel decrepit and ancient watching 19-year-old Simone Biles execute flips and twists at the Rio Games with an athleticism that I will never attain. Still, Biles got me wondering which Olympic events I theoretically might still have a shot of participating in at my age (assuming I could change pretty much everything about my genetic makeup and lifestyle in a very short period of time). For each sport of the 2016 Games, I looked at the median age of the participants — overall, men and women — using data from athlete profile pages on the Rio 2016 website.1As of Aug. 3, there were 11,384 athletes on the site for which we obtained age data.

He’ll also have to pay $250,000 in restitution.The fund was established to help Democratic candidates win state Senate elections. Charging papers say King swindled campaign funds with faked expenses.The Times reports diverted donations might have helped Democrats maintain control over the state Senate.
Two high-ranking Facebook execs — chief product officer Chris Cox and Chris Daniels, who has run the WhatsApp messaging product — are leaving the company.CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the changes in a memo to employees, which Facebook shared in its news blog.The departures come after Zuckerberg last week outlined a new privacy vision for Facebook, setting plans for private communications on the company’s apps to be fully encrypted — and for user content and messages to self-destruct after a certain period of time.Cox (pictured above) joined Facebook in 2005 as a software engineer and helped build the first versions of key Facebook features, including News Feed. In 2008 he became Facebook’s first VP of product, where he built the initial product management and design teams, before being promoted to chief product officer in 2014 where he has overseen all of the company’s apps: Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger. In addition, Fidji Simo, previously head of video for Facebook, will be the new head of the Facebook app to take over for Cathcart. Simo, who joined the company in 2011 from eBay, had been in charge of video, games and monetization at Facebook, managing a team of more than 600 product managers and engineers.Facebook hasn’t announced a new head of video to replace Simo. “She has played key roles in building many aspects of the Facebook app, including leading our work on video and advertising,” Zuckerberg wrote. He added that Simo has already led the team for much of 2018 while Cathcart was out on parental leave, and “she is the clear person to lead these efforts going forward.”“While it is sad to lose such great people, this also creates opportunities for more great leaders who are energized about the path ahead to take on new and bigger roles,” Zuckerberg wrote. “For a few years, Chris has been discussing with me his desire to do something else,” Zuckerberg wrote in the memo. “At this point, we have made real progress on many issues and we have a clear plan for our apps, centered around making private messaging, stories and groups the foundation of the experience, including enabling encryption and interoperability across our services. As we embark on this next major chapter, Chris has decided now is the time to step back from leading these teams.”In a farewell note Cox posted on Facebook, he said in part that the company’s shift to “a modern communications platform that balances expression, safety, security, and privacy” will be “a big project and we will need leaders who are excited to see the new direction through.”In what is likely pure coincidence, Facebook’s products suffered record outages and access problems for many users across its suite of apps, including Facebook and Instagram, over a 24-hour period starting Wednesday around noon ET.Zuckerberg said he doesn’t plan to immediately tap a replacement for Cox. Instead, the heads of each of the products (Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp) report directly to Zuckerberg.Facebook’s apps strategy has been led jointly by Cox and Javier Olivan, VP of growth, who has been responsible for all of the central product services that work across apps, including safety and integrity, analytics, growth, and ads. Olivan will take on a new role to identify “where our apps should be more integrated,” according to Zuckerberg.With Daniels also exiting the company — less than a year after Zuckerberg moved the former business development exec from running Facebook’s Internet.org initiative — the new head of WhatsApp is Will Cathcart, who previously has been in charge of running the Facebook app.According to Zuckerberg, Cathcart “led our shift to focusing on meaningful social interactions and has significantly improved the performance and reliability of the app.” In addition, the CEO noted, Cathcart “believes deeply in providing end-to-end encryption to everyone in the world across our services.” Popular on Variety ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

When three Gelfling heroes — voiced by Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy and Nathalie Emmanuel — discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, they set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.The original film, which Jim Henson co-directed with Frank Oz, grossed over $40 million on a $16 million budget. It was one of only three feature films Henson directed in his career, along with “The Great Muppet Caper” and “Labyrinth.” Netflix ordered the one-hour series in 2017.
The team proposes two main scientific goals for JWST when it comes to observing these moons. The first task would be completing the infrared survey of major satellites. The second goal is geology-related and described as “monitoring surface changes of active satellites.” The researchers presented their proposal in a paper published on the arXiv.”The James Webb Space Telescope will allow observations with a unique combination of spectral, spatial, and temporal resolution for the study of outer planet satellites within our solar system. We highlight the infrared spectroscopy of icy moons and temporal changes on geologically active satellites as two particularly valuable avenues of scientific inquiry,” the scientists wrote in the paper.JWST will be equipped in four scientific instruments: the Near InfraRed Camera (NIRCam), the Near InfraRed Spectrograph (NIRSpec), the Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) and the Fine Guidance Sensor/Near Infrared Imager and Slitless Spectrograph (FGS/NIRISS).These instruments provide a unique opportunity to obtain high spectral resolution infrared spectra from planetary satellites in wavelength regions that cannot be observed from Earth. JWST’s results could complement observations of outer solar system moons conducted by Voyager and Cassini missions.The scientists hope that the telescope’s key scientific contribution could be determining the compositions of giant gas planets’ irregular satellites. They note that even at very low spatial resolution, near-infrared spectroscopy is sensitive to H2O and other ices, as well as silicates and spectral slopes characteristic of complex organic “tholins” (heteropolymer molecules formed by solar ultraviolet irradiation of simple organic compounds such as methane or ethane).”JWST has the sensitivity to provide unique compositional data on irregular satellites. For example, in the one to 2.5 micron region of the near-infrared, amorphous vs. crystalline surface composition of icy bodies could be surveyed extensively using JWST NIRSpec,” the paper reads.Irregular satellites are important sources of dust in the giant planet systems. Dust orbits evolve under effects of radiation pressure and solar tides. By linking the sizes, densities, and albedos of dust particles to the source satellite surface compositions, JWST could offer new insights into the role of these satellites in the production of dust particles. More information: Observing Outer Planet Satellites (except Titan) with JWST: Science Justification and Observational Requirements, arXiv:1511.03735 [astro-ph.EP] arxiv.org/abs/1511.03735AbstractThe James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will allow observations with a unique combination of spectral, spatial, and temporal resolution for the study of outer planet satellites within our Solar System. We highlight the infrared spectroscopy of icy moons and temporal changes on geologically active satellites as two particularly valuable avenues of scientific inquiry. While some care must be taken to avoid saturation issues, JWST has observation modes that should provide excellent infrared data for such studies.

Image credit: Northrop Grumman. Journal information: arXiv The observations of geologic activity of the outer solar system moons, described by Kestay and his colleagues as the second main goal for JWST could also bring remarkable scientific results. The telescope will be able to detect changes on the surface that are indicative of temporal variations in composition and temperature.Many of the outer planet satellites are remarkably active. For instance, Jupiter’s moon Io, Neptune’s largest moon Triton, and Enceladus, Saturn’s icy satellite, have active eruptions. The recent suggestion of active plumes above Europa, orbiting Jupiter, is especially exciting because it may provide samples from a habitable environment that is otherwise extremely challenging to access.The scientists believe that the best moon for these observations would be Io. They note that JWST could observe significant surface changes on this satellite where volcanic activity is very high.”The observations every six months that JWST can make of the Jovian system is very well suited for monitoring the creation and fading of colorful plume deposits on Io which typically happen on a timescales of several months and have diameters of many hundreds of kilometers,” the researchers wrote.They are convinced that JWST observations could also resolve other scientific problems related to Io, such as the eruption temperature of its lavas and the uncertainty about the composition and state of its mantle. This could be crucial to our understanding of how tidal heating works in the Jovian system.The researchers conclude that these two types of JWST observations will enable compelling science of outer solar system moons. They present the telescope as an important tool for studying planetary satellites, underlining that the road to understanding the origins of the universe leads through the observations of our outer solar system. Finally, they encourage the scientific community to use their paper to formulate more specific observation plans. This document is subject to copyright.

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), often touted as Hubble’s successor, is slated to be launched in 2018 to study every phase of cosmic history, mainly by observing the most distant objects in the universe. The telescope will also be useful for investigating extrasolar planetary systems as well as planets within our solar system. Now, a team of researchers led by Laszlo Kestay, the director of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Astrogeology Science Center, has laid out its plan to use the telescope’s capabilities to better understand our planetary neighborhood by putting emphasis on outer solar system moons and their geology.

One way to do this is to use ammonia as a hydrogen source. However, discovery of an efficient process for breaking down ammonia has proved difficult, largely because the catalytic process to break down ammonia requires the continuous addition of heat, which can be prohibitively expensive.Katsutoshi Nagaoka, Takaaki Eboshi, Yuma Takeishi, Ryo Tasaki, Kyoto Honda, Kazuya Imamura, and Katsutoshi Sato of Oita University in Japan have developed a method using a novel catalyst for producing hydrogen from ammonia without the addition of external heat through the catalytic cycle. Their work appears in Science Advances.The decomposition of ammonia into hydrogen and nitrogen is an endothermic process, meaning that it requires the addition of energy to obtain products. This means that traditional catalytic decomposition reactions require the addition of a large amount of heat to obtain a useful amount of hydrogen gas.Nagaoka et al. developed a catalyst that is made of a RuO2 nanoparticle supported on γ-Al2O3 catalyst bed. After purging their catalyst of H2O and CO2, ammonia and oxygen were added to the reaction vessel where ammonia was adsorbed onto the catalytic surface, resulting in an increase in temperature. This increase in temperature catalyzed the oxidative decomposition of ammonia, an exothermic process. This heated up the reaction, which in turn, provided the energy for the endothermic decomposition of ammonia into hydrogen and nitrogen. The catalyst pre-treatment did require heating to remove water and carbon dioxide, but it did not require subsequent re-heating. Tests on catalyst cycling showed that after the initial pre-treatment of the RuO2/γ-Al2O3 catalyst with helium at 300oC, the catalyst was able to cycle three times and still produce hydrogen in maximum yields. Furthermore, these studies included oxidative passivation to ensure that no heat was produced from oxidation of Ru to RuO2. In practice, oxidative passivation will not be necessary. So, even though heating is required to pre-treat the catalyst, heating is not required for additional cycles of the catalyst.In an effort to understand how the RuO2/γ-Al2O3 catalyst works, Nagaoka et al. compared the maximum catalytic bed temperature that results from self-heating of RuO2/ γ-Al2O3 to RuO2/La2O3, a known ammonia decomposition catalyst. They found that the aluminum-based catalyst heated to a maximum temperature of 97oC, while the lanthanum-based catalyst heated to a maximum temperature of 53oC. This is important because the auto-ignition temperature for the oxidative combustion of ammonia is 90oC, and it explains why better reaction yields were seen with RuO2/ γ-Al2O3. The authors point out that this difference in adsorption temperature is likely due to the favorable interaction between ammonia, a basic molecule, and Al2O3, which is a Lewis acid. La2O3, on the other hand, is a Lewis base.Additionally, the authors looked at the difference between using bare γ-Al2O3 as a catalyst and RuO2/ γ-Al2O3. They found that 90% of the ammonia adsorbs onto bare γ-Al2O3 compared to the catalyst bed and the RuO2 nanoparticle. This implies that ammonia is chemisorbed onto the nanoparticle and γ-Al2O3, which then promotes multilayer physisorption. Overall, this type of catalyst is helpful in providing enough heat to overcome the needed heat requirements for the endothermic decomposition of ammonia into hydrogen and nitrogen gas. This study shows that self-heating catalysis is a viable option for exploring solutions to the practical difficulties in using ammonia as a hydrogen fuel source. (Phys.org)—Hydrogen has the potential to provide an alternative, clean energy source, particularly as applied to fuel cell technology. Current fuel sources involve carbon-containing fossil fuels or carbon-containing organic molecules, which result in the production of excess CO2, a greenhouse gas. Several initiatives, including a national initiative in Japan, seek to create a low-carbon usage society by using alternative fuel sources.

DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1602747AbstractAmmonia has been suggested as a carbon-free hydrogen source, but a convenient method for producing hydrogen from ammonia with rapid initiation has not been developed. Ideally, this method would require no external energy input. We demonstrate hydrogen production by exposing ammonia and O2 at room temperature to an acidic RuO2/γ-Al2O3 catalyst. Because adsorption of ammonia onto the catalyst is exothermic, the catalyst bed is rapidly heated to the catalytic ammonia autoignition temperature, and subsequent oxidative decomposition of ammonia produces hydrogen. A differential calorimeter combined with a volumetric gas adsorption analyzer revealed a large quantity of heat evolved both with chemisorption of ammonia onto RuO2 and acidic sites on the γ-Al2O3 and with physisorption of multiple ammonia molecules.

Krishnagar: Accusing the Centre of running parallel governments in states, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday announced that her government will withdraw from the Ayushman Bharat health insurance scheme.Addressing a gathering at Krishnagar Government College ground after giving away prizes to the winners of the first Jaltarang Sports festival, she said letters bearing the photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with health cards under Ayushman Bharat scheme were being sent to individuals. The logo embossed on the letter is a lotus which is also the official party symbol of the BJP. “This is cheating. Where is the budget to provide medical assistance to the beneficiaries,” she wondered and added: “The Centre collects various kinds of taxes from the states and gives back a percentage of the collected amount. Thus, the states have a share. But the BJP is projecting it in such a manner as if it is giving the medical assistance to them.” Also Read – 3 injured, flight, train services hit as rains lash BengalThe Chief Minister said under the Constitution, health, education and law and order are State subjects and she failed to understand why the Centre is intervening into the matter. “What does Modi think of himself? Is he trying to run parallel governments in the states? I will request all the states to intensify vigil and stop this nasty practice,” she said. Banerjee further added: “The new government in Delhi will ensure that the federal structure in our country is strengthened. ” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedShe said in case of crop insurance of the farmers, the Centre gives only 20 percent of the premium and publishes the picture of the Prime Minister to give a message to the farmers as if the BJP is giving the money to them. “We have decided to pay the premium on our own and have paid Rs 625 crore in 2018. Everywhere the BJP is playing dirty politics to mislead people,” she maintained. Banerjee said 10 percent reservation for economically challenged general caste “is another big hoax. Modi is lying to the masses and whenever an election comes, the quantum of lies go up. Have you received Rs 15 lakh which he had announced before the 2014 election.” She alleged that Modi has destroyed the institutions like CBI, ED and even RBI. “He has a big mouth and talks a lot. He should buy two mirrors — one to see his face and the other to see him talking. Even when he gives speeches in English, they are manipulated. When we speak, we make mistakes but we never use technology to project ourselves as flamboyant orators.” Banerjee laid the foundation stone of Kanyashree University and said a country can make progress if girls are looked after properly. She added that Kanyashree has helped girls to pursue higher education and a day will come when girls from Bengal will reach the top in every sphere of life.
