Wellknown eateries in Balurghat run without Food Safety Licences

first_imgBalurghat: Most of the well-known eateries running in Balurghat have no ‘Food Safety Licences’.The matter came to light following joint drives conducted by the officials of the concerned district Food Safety Department and Balurghat Civic Body over the past two days.It may be mentioned that the state Urban Development department has instructed all civic bodies to conduct raids at restaurants and eateries after a racket selling rotten and stale meat was unearthed in Kolkata. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe concerned officials have asked the owners of the restaurants and eateries to follow the food safety norms strictly, failing which they will close down the establishments.During the drives, the officials found that the hotels and restaurants are being run flouting the mentioned norms. In most of the restaurants, the kitchens are being run in unhygienic conditions. However, no stale and rotten meat was found stored in the freezers. Civic officials said the former Left board was largely responsible for the menace of flouting the food safety measures by the owners of those eateries and running their establishments without any hindrance. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedAccording to a civic official, the erstwhile Left board had only distributed registrations to the owners of those establishments for Rs 100 to start their trades.District Food Safety Department official, Biswajit Manna said: “It is unfortunate that most reputed hotels and restaurants in town have no proper infrastructure. The kitchens are unhygienic. The establishments have no Food Safety Licenses too. We have instructed to follow the rules and regulations immediately.” The chairman of Balurghat Municipality, Rajen Shill echoed Manna and said: “We will monitor the situation. Several drives will also be conducted at the eateries in Balurghat in future. We have talked to the officials of district Food Safety Department regarding the matter.”The officials said the raids will be held everyday and restaurants found not following the norms will be booked.It may be mentioned that in Birbhum district, the civic officials have collected food samples from several restaurants and sent them to the laboratories for analysis.last_img read more

Kolkata girl dead in school washroom Primary autopsy confirms suicide

first_imgKolkata: Primary autopsy reports of Class X student, who was found dead inside her school washroom on Friday, confirmed suicide.Police said the primary report mentioned hypoxia or lack of oxygen supply to the brain and body as the cause of death of the student of GD Birla Centre for Education in south Kolkata. The cut mark on her wrist was a second injury, which according to doctors was “self-implicating”. Doctors suspected that the girl died because of the polythene packet that she had tied up with strings, used to bind practical notebooks, to cover her head. The autopsy was done at SSKM hospital on Saturday. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata Police also confirmed that the girl had suicidal tendency. Even earlier, she had attempted to take the extreme step at home. “So far, investigation reveals that it was a case of suicide. While examining her mother, we found out that she had made similar attempts at home earlier,” said an investigating official. Bright, meritorious and trained in self-defence, she was always among the top five rank holders. Police said she had attended five periods before her death and behaved normally. Before leaving her classroom, she had told her friends that she would go to the sick room. However, CCTV footage showed that she instead went to the washroom with a few things in her hand. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state “She was missing for 40 minutes and was later found unconscious inside the washroom. Prima facie it appears to be a case of suicide, which very well-planned. She had spoken to her father before school and had asked him to get biryani from Hyderabad, when he returned from there,” said an investigating official. Her three-page suicide note had no overwriting and was flawless, said police. She also described how she was dying and that no one should be held responsible for her death. “She hasn’t held anyone responsible for her death in her suicide note. But her writing shows how upset she was and had a lot of hidden pain. She hasn’t addressed anyone in specific in her suicide note. She also thanked her parents for doing their best in her life. But has mentioned about some strange dark side of her life, which isn’t clear,” said police. Police suspected she might have consumed something before wrapping her head with a polythine, so that no one could hear her screams. However, that will be cleared in the detailed autopsy report. Police also suspected that she had learnt the procedure by watching web series or movies. “She was academically brilliant and would complete her syllabus much in advance. Her mother said she had wanted an admission in the Indian Statistical Institute in future and would often talk about it,” said police. Police are now examining her laptops and mobile phones. Chairperson of West Bengal Commission for Protection of Child Rights, Ananya Chakraborti, met the school authorities Saturday. “The school authorities are very shocked since they never found anything abnormal in her. But after the incident when they spoke to her mother, she apparently revealed that the girl had attempted suicide even before. Her parents didn’t inform the school authorities about it, otherwise they would have paid more attention and such an incident could have been averted,” Chakraborti said.Several guardians believed that lack of CCTV cameras inside washrooms make it easy for students to do anything secretly. An attendant outside the washroom could have avoided this incident in particular, they added. “This is an extremely unfortunate incident. It should be probed from all possible angle, be it any loophole on part of the school authorities, the education system or domestic environment,” said Suranjan Das, Vice Chancellor of Jadavpur University.

Dozens of accidents have been reported on the section of the A51 – between Aston Marina, on the outskirts of Stone, and the A34 roundabout – in the past decade. It has sparked calls for the speed limit to be cut from 60mph to 40mph. Now Stone Town Council is writing to Staffordshire County Council to urge them to take action. Families say that stretch of the A51 is ‘dangerous’. The A51 at its entrance to Aston Marina, near Stone Councillor Mike Williamson said: “As a keen cyclist I used to cycle along the A51 to go to Sandon. But I have stopped doing that – it’s much too dangerous to consider going on a bicycle. “If I want to go to Sandon I go to The Star and cycle along the towpath. I would rather fall into the canal than be hit by someone going at 60mph.” Read MoreTop stories on StokeonTrentLive A stretch of the A51 between Aston Marina and the A34 roundabout Gill Howe, from Aston Lodge, said: “I’ve lived here for 22 years and this road has always been a problem. I nearly get taken out most days and I think the filter lanes confuse people. Getting out of Aston Marina and pulling into Stone, when you need to slow down or speed up, is dangerous.” Read MorePlans revealed to fit all taxis with CCTV cameras to keep passengers safe – do you think it’s a good idea?   Kat Davis, aged 40, added: “It will be a good idea to reduce the speed limit. There have been accidents and 40mph would be a sensible speed. I’ve witnessed a few near-misses and the bend in the road doesn’t help when people are doing 60mph. The filter lanes also mean that traffic is in the middle of the road with fast cars going past either side.” The roundabout of the A34 and the A51 near Stone A number of residents have written to the town council to support the campaign.

first_imgA majority of US males aged 13 to 21 (52%) now spend more time following non-traditional sports than traditional sports, according to research by Whistle Sports.The millennial-focused broadcaster, which produces sports-related content for digital platforms, found in its study that 56% of Gen Z viewers believe that non-traditional sports are “more relevant to their generation than traditional sports”.The US report, which was carried out in partnership with millennial research firm Cassandra, said that 90% of Gen Z males think there are many definitions of sports today, with 76% believing that practiced skills are more important to sports than physical activity.“If brands want to connect with Gen Z, and see ROI on their marketing investments, it is crucial to understand how young audiences define and consume sports,” according to the research. “Most young men are frustrated that traditional sports are overloaded with marketing messages, and they watch highlights (55%) over full games (45%) to avoid ads.”“Advertising in sports besides football, basketball, baseball, hockey and soccer has yet to pass the tipping point where it overwhelms; more than two-thirds of young men (69%) still say brands are a welcome part of non-traditional sports.”Whistle Sports curates and distributes sports-related entertainment content, which that focuses on creativity, humour and skill, to platforms like YouTube, Facebook Watch, Snapchat and IGTV.
