Here’s What You Need to Know About Data Compression

first_imgWhat’s the difference between lossy and lossless compression? What about uncompressed? Learn the differences between each in this filmmaking guide.Data compression is an unseen force of tremendous power in the modern world. Without the myriad innovations in the field of compression, there is a good chance that our modern computer age would have never taken off.All types of data are compressible: audio, video, text files, pictures — you name it. Compression essentially takes an input data set and encodes it using fewer bits than the original file would have taken up on its own. This information must then be decoded before you can interact with it again. This encode/decode process vastly reduces the computational resources necessary to view and manipulate the data, thereby reducing the computational and bandwidth requirements at each stage after the encode.So, with that out of the way, let’s take a look at the alternative to data compression.UncompressedImage via FlashMovie.Uncompressed data is stored exactly as it was recorded or input. Because of this bit-for-bit duplication, uncompressed data offers maximum data fidelity at the cost of maximum storage and bandwidth requirements.Uncompressed data is a remnant of the early days of computing — even the most complex data sets used to be orders of magnitude smaller due to technological limitations.How does it work?Uncompressed data doesn’t usually implement special encoding techniques. Rather, each bit gets stored exactly as it comes from the input source. This reduces computational requirements for the input/capture device by offloading the complex task of playback or access to the end user’s device.Uncompressed data is good for archival purposes because it doesn’t throw any information away, but the costs of storage will add up quickly.So what can compression offer instead?CodecsImage via majcot.LossyThe early ’90s saw the first incarnations of compressed data. Perhaps the most well-known of these early formats was MPEG-1 Audio Layer 1, which was released in 1993. This framework would lead to the development of the famous MP3 audio codec.MP3s, along with their early peers, were the first lossy file formats. As these formats gained traction, the industry coined a new term for them: “Codec” — short for Compressor/De-Compressor or Coder/Decoder.How Does It Work?Image via The7Dew.Lossy codecs throw away a considerable amount of the information contained in the source file or input data stream.Lossy codecs vastly reduce file size compared to uncompressed data sets. This is typically done by taking the input data set and reducing it to the closest approximate digital value. Different codecs have different bit depths — or the total number of possible digital values available for the interpretation of raw input data.The best lossy codecs are designed around the perceptual limitations of humans. Most uncompressed data contains a large amount of information that our eyes and ears are incapable of perceiving. This means that a well-designed lossy codec can eliminate a large amount of the total information contained before any human would ever be able to notice.Image via TaMaNKunG.Lossy codecs’ lightweight nature make them ideal for streaming and other live-broadcast applications.Lossy codecs are the worst possible format for archival purposes due to the fact that a significant amount of information in the source data set disappears. While humans might not be able to discern a difference between the raw data and the first lossy encode of that data, as more lossy versions are made from the original lossy encode, the perceptual differences become more and more apparent.Now, let’s enter the 21st century.LosslessThe first lossless codec was the “Fully Lossless Audio Codec,” or FLAC, and was released in 2000.The development of lossless codecs marked a sea change in the world of data compression. Lossless codecs claim to offer exact or near-equal quality to uncompressed data, but with file sizes much closer to lossy compression. This is a result of compressing the input data in a specific way so that the decoder can later reconstruct the original data set.Understanding the tech behind lossless compression can make your head spin if you go deep enough. YouTube tech darling Linus does a fantastic job of breaking down the basics in this video by Techquickie.In the example Linus gives, the string “XXXOOXXX” is encoded to “3 O2 3”. When the string needs to be accessed again, “3 O2 3” is decoded back into “XXX00XXX”.Image via Techquickie.Due to its ability to reconstruct an uncompressed data set from a compressed one, lossless encoding has largely eclipsed uncompressed data in nearly every situation. Most master-quality video and audio codecs use some form of lossless compression.The main trade-off for lossless compression is a slightly longer encode and decode time — much better than the drawbacks of lossy or uncompressed.Losslessly compressed data is the gold standard for all data archiving. The compressed files can be archived and then decoded once they need to be accessed again, thereby preserving all data while also reducing costs of storage.While all types of data compression offer some advantage over other types, lossless compression provides the most benefits with the least number of concessions to file size, mobility, or quality.The next few decades will likely take lossless codec technology to new heights as older lossy formats end their useful lifespans.Cover image via Dilok Kiatlertnapha.Looking for more on digital filmmaking?

Sublime Fakhar leads Pakistan to 338-4 in ICC final

first_imgbl18_WCC match final   –  Reuters June 18, 2017 × Fakhar Zaman capitalised on a lucky escape to strike a superb 114 and lift Pakistan to a commanding total of 338 for four in the Champions Trophy final against arch-rivals India at The Oval on Sunday.Fakhar shared a fluent century opening partnership with Azhar Ali (59) and unleashed a barrage of attacking strokes all around a sun-kissed ground to give Pakistan real hope of upsetting the defending champions.India will feel aggrieved as Fakhar, on three, was caught by wicketkeeper Mahehdra Singh Dhoni off a Jasprit Bumrah no-ball and the 27-year-old left-hander took full advantage to reach his first international century.Azhar also continued his fine form in the tournament, reaching his fifty off 61 balls before he was run out following a mix-up with his partner.Babar Azam joined Fakhar, who lofted Ravindra Jadeja over long-on for six and got to three figures by sweeping Ravichandran Ashwin to the boundary.He celebrated with an extravagant twirl of his bat and kissed the turf as the Pakistan supporters sensed an unlikely win for the lowest-ranked team going into the tournament who lost heavily to India in the group stage.Fakhar hit 12 fours and three sixes before skying a catch off Hardik Pandya but Pakistan, who upset hosts England in the semi-finals, had the perfect platform to make the highest total in a Champions Trophy final.Babar chipped in with a solid 46 and Mohammad Hafeez struck three sixes in a punchy unbeaten 57 that left India needing to produce the highest successful run chase in the tournament’s history to lift the trophy for the third time.

High time we did something for the crowd: Gurkeerat Singh after RCB win

first_imgRoyal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli had said at the toss itself that they would do anything possible to bring a smile on the faces of the fans present at the M Chinnaswamy stadium for their final match of Indian Premier League 2019 and that is exactly what they managed to do on Saturday.Getting knocked out in the league stage yet again is never a nice feeling but RCB fans have stayed loyal to their team and supported Virat Kohli’s boys through thick and thin. They even braved the rain and thunderstorm to stay until the end, well past midnight, in their penultimate game against Rajasthan Royals which ultimately ended in a no result as the conditions worsened due to the downpour.They paid tribute to the fans at the Chinnaswamy and around the world by beating Sunrisers Hyderabad convincingly in their final game of the season.Chasing 176 for victory, Royal Challengers were struggling at 20 for 3 with Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Parthiv Patel back in the hut. But then came the mammoth 144-run partnership between Shimron Hetmyer and Gurkeerat Singh Mann as they took the team within touching distance of the target.Two men announced themselves to #VIVOIPL, one man redeemed himself with the winning shot for @RCBTweets #RCBvSRH pic.twitter.com/4YjoLbdhY7IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) May 4, 2019Hetmyer was the aggressor throughout the run chase and top-scored with 75 off 47 balls with six sixes and four boundaries while Gurkeerat played a calm and composed innings to end up with 65 off 48 balls. RCB ended up reaching the target with 4 wickets in hand and with 4 balls to spare.advertisementThe players then took a lap of honour around the stadium, thanking the RCB fans. Kohli and Gurkeerat both expressed their gratitude for the crowd at the post-match presentation as well.”I just want to tell all the people in the stadium that it has been such a long time playing in this stadium and every year we come, the support is better. Hats-off to you guys for turning up in numbers. We are so thankful and so grateful to have fans like you all. I can certainly feel your pain.”I am emotionally attached to this team like all of you. And next year we will definitely improve our performance. And give you guys what you deserve in return. Thanks again for coming out in huge numbers.

Rohit Sharma enjoys a lovely bus drive to Cardiff with Jadeja, Jadhav

first_imgThe Indian cricket team is currently in England as part of the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 set to begin on May 30. While India lost their 1st warm-up match against New Zealand in London on Saturday, they are next slated to play Bangladesh in their last warm-up before their campaign begins on June 5 against South Africa.While traveling from London to Cardiff, Indian opener Rohit Sharma posted an Instagram video sharing the funny side to his teammates Ravindra Jadeja and Kedar Jadhav. While the latter is nursing an injury at the moment, Jadeja was the only bright spot from a dismal Indian batting performance against New Zealand.In the video, Rohit starts by showing the beautiful scenes of the British countryside before congratulating Jadeja for his counter-attacking 54 versus the Kiwis.”Hey guys, we are on our way to Cardiff from London and as you can see, beautiful scenes out there. I’m in the company of 2 gentlemen – Ravindra Jadeja and Kedar Jadhav. Jaddu well played yaar!,” said Rohit at the start of the video.Jadeja replied by thanking Rohit and going on to say that he indeed felt great after putting in a good performance with the bat, especially under challenging conditions.”Thanks, Rohit! Feels great after batting well under tough conditions. Hopefully, as a team we do well as the tournament progresses,” replied Jadeja.advertisementTo which Rohit said: “Yes we will! This World Cup is very important to all of us.”Then, Rohit turned to Jadhav by saying that he has heard that the latter has got offers for a Bollywood movie called Race 4.”Sitting with Jaddu is the new actor of Race 4, Kedar Jadhav. Kedar, we have heard that you’ve got an offer from the movie Race 4 for a special appearance or something…,” joked Rohit.Jadhav, on his part, continued with the joke saying that the fans might be in for a surprise in a couple of months time.”Nothing is final as of now and we’re still in the process of talking but hopefully after two months we’ll have a surprise for you all,” quipped Jadhav.Whether Jadhav actually stars in a movie or not, the cricketers know that they will need to come up with some incredible performances if they are to lift the trophy in the final at Lord’s on July 14.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Chris Gayle treats fans with autographs and selfies during rain break in warm-upAlso Read | If not for Shardul Thakur’s no-ball, my career was over: Vijay Shankarlast_img read more

While that should have ended, or at least slowed down, the series of rumours and leaks about the Pixel 3 successor, but it hasn’t. And now, a new image renders of the Pixel 4 smartphone indicate that the phone would sport big front bezels and that it would come with hand gesture control.Images of the front panel of the Google Pixel 4 shared by noted tipster Ice Universe contains number of cutouts in the top bezel of the smartphone. The top bezels, as the Verge reports, would be thicker than a lot popular Android phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus and the OnePlus 7 Pro which would cover a variety of sensors and front camera that would have remained hidden had Google opted for a pop-up camera or a notch.Another report by 9To5 Google indicates that the cutouts in the forehead bezels would house two front-facing cameras and a speaker. The third cut out is likely to be there for the face recognition technology – a feature the Google Pixel 4 is likely to be equipped with. The fourth cutout on the right corner of the top bezel is expected to house the Soli radar chip, which would enable the users to use hand gestures to access various controls on the Pixel 3 successor.The oval opening of the Pixel 4 Series front panel means that the Google Pixel 4 Series will be groundbreaking and new and worth looking forward to. pic.twitter.com/9Pg9bGcWrsadvertisementIce universe (@UniverseIce) July 20, 2019Apart from the image of the Pixel 4 front panel shared by the tipster, Steve H McFly and iGeeksBlog also shared detailed renders of the upcoming smartphone that show a design similar to the one highlighted in the images by Ice Universe, which is thick top bezels and thin bezels at the bottom. In addition to this, the image also shows the square shaped camera bump, containing a triple camera setup, as was seen in the image tweeted by Google. Notably, the image shared by Google also had a fingerprint sensor missing from the back of the phone indictating that the comany could opt for an in-display fingerprint sensor or a design that is similar to Galaxy S10 instead.pic.twitter.com/mJjHCYy2IvSteve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) July 20, 2019Google is expected to unveil the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones in October this year.

Employers Must Engage Workers – Industry Minister

first_imgStory Highlights The Minister, who was addressing the Jamaica Employers’ Federation (JEF) 36th Annual Business & Workplace Convention at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande in Ocho Rios on June 8, further called for a change of mindset on the part of employers, noting that the workforce today is far more flexible and discerning than ever before. Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, says that for Jamaica to achieve and maximise its full economic potential, employers must involve workers in everything they do.The Minister, who was addressing the Jamaica Employers’ Federation (JEF) 36th Annual Business & Workplace Convention at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande in Ocho Rios on June 8, further called for a change of mindset on the part of employers, noting that the workforce today is far more flexible and discerning than ever before.“Employees are now looking at entities with new and empowered lenses. They are more willing to work for the hip and trendy workplace. Millennials want to work in spaces that provide out-of-the-box creative spaces that excite and facilitate their creativity,” Mr. Shaw said.The Minister argued that technological breakthroughs will drastically transform the way people work over the next five to 10 years.“A cursory glance at our near-shore service industry gives clear sight of this. We have individuals sitting at a desk here in Jamaica assisting customers in Australia, Europe and so many other geographic locations. Single mothers are sitting at a computer at home making more money that other women who get up, dress up and commute to an office daily,” he noted.The Minister said it is imperative that Jamaican employers keep pace with what is trending globally, noting that to do otherwise could have irreversible and long-term effects on the nation’s economy.“We cannot be stuck in the old ways of doing things simply because that’s the way we have always done them. The Internet and the rapidly moving globalisation tide demand that we keep up,” Mr. Shaw added.He also cautioned against the practice of giving workers the proverbial cold shoulder, emphasising that it is important for employers to make engagement a priority in order to increase productivity in the workforce.“Despite the challenges that come with change, you must become masters of engagement who are able to identify disengaged team members as well as implement strategies to improve the way you, as mangers, operate,” the Minister said.Mr. Shaw said the approach must be to create the right conditions, a more cohesive, harmonious, and conducive working environment for all members of the organisation, one that will enable them to give of their best each day, and one that fosters motivation to contribute to organisational success, with an enhanced sense of their own well-being.“We all have a role to play in this regard. Whether as government, managers or supervisors, our goal must be to lead the development of an enabling business environment,” the Minister emphasised.“As Government, our task is to lead this charge through an effective legislative framework that will strengthen the ability of our employers, public or private sector, to optimise competitiveness and workplace harmony,” he said. “Employees are now looking at entities with new and empowered lenses. They are more willing to work for the hip and trendy workplace. Millennials want to work in spaces that provide out-of-the-box creative spaces that excite and facilitate their creativity,” Mr. Shaw said.

Nova Scotians to Benefit from Projects Under the New Culture Innovation Fund

first_imgInvesting in arts and culture helps build diverse, vibrant and healthy communities across Nova Scotia. Today, July 4, government announced investment in 31 projects approved in 2017-18 under the $1.5 million Culture Innovation Fund. “Each of these projects demonstrates the power of harnessing the arts, creativity and our culture to address complex social issues,” said Leo Glavine, Minister of Communities, Culture and Heritage. “These projects show how artists, public institutions and community organizations can play a leadership role in leveraging creativity, arts and culture to develop and implement programs that help those in need, bring people together and promote inclusion. This, in turn, strengthens our communities and province.” Among the recipients is the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (NSCAD) which is receiving $80,000, in partnership with Phoenix Youth Programs, for the Art Factory. This program uses art to provide positive, supported and safe classroom experiences for Phoenix’s clients and helps prepare them for other educational settings. “Our youth have many hidden talents and we have witnessed first-hand how freedom of expression and access to professional artists builds confidence and supports mental health,” said Christine Hall, director of community programs, Phoenix. “One of the participants in the Art Factory program last year enrolled at NSCAD. We are incredibly grateful that we can continue our partnership with NSCAD and encourage the creative growth of Phoenix youth.” The Art Factory also provides training and employment opportunities for NSCAD students. “Everyone who is part of the program; staff, facilitators and participants have something great to offer and something greater to gain,” said Leesa Hamilton, Art Factory co-founder and curriculum creator, NSCAD. “For many of our facilitators, they are developing a workshop and teaching for the first time, which can feel like a daunting task. “We are all invested in making the experience the best it can be, and the combination of collective skill-sharing has resulted in a fun and supportive space where good art is made.”The fund, announced in January, supports new and innovative culture initiatives that address social priorities and economic opportunities across the province. Applications are accepted year-round. Creation of the fund was a priority action item in the province’s Culture Action Plan, launched in 2017. The plan includes a focus on the social impact and benefits of culture. Culture Innovation Grants were also announced in Sydney and Lunenburg: Municipal Affairs Minister Derek Mombourquette announced that the Highlands Arts Theatre Association in Sydney will receive $25,000 towards a summer student’s program called HATch, which will help develop the skills of young actors MLA Suzanne Lohnes-Croft announced $24,500 to the South Shore Public Libraries towards its summer 2018 Children’s Tour. The tour will feature Nova Scotian performers, artists and educators in shows and workshops across the province that showcase Nova Scotia’s rich and diverse culture A full listing of projects receiving grants from the Culture Innovation Fund can be found at https://cch.novascotia.ca/culture-innovation-fundcenter_img The Culture Innovation Fund is made possible through Support4Culture, a designated lottery program from Nova Scotia Gaming that supports arts, culture, and heritage in communities across Nova Scotia.last_img read more

US President Trump downplays N Korea launches on Japan visit

first_imgTokyo: US President Donald Trump on Sunday played down recent missile launches by North Korea as he teed off a state visit to Japan with a round of golf with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Before hitting the course, Trump tweeted that North Korea had tested “some small weapons” that had “disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me”. This appeared to be a reference to one of his “people”, National Security Advisor John Bolton, who had said the previous day there was “no doubt” the launches had contravened UN Security Council resolutions. Also Read – ‘Hong Kong won’t rule out Chinese help over protests’But Trump said: “I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me.” The American president maintains that North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un had pledged he was serious about denuclearisation although experts say there is still a wide gulf between the two sides over what that means exactly. At their summit, Trump and Abe are likely to touch on tensions with North Korea, which have mounted after a summit in February in Hanoi collapsed without an agreement, as well as trade as Tokyo and Washington attempt to thrash out a deal. Also Read – Pak Army chief accompanies Imran at key meetings in ChinaOn trade, Trump tweeted that “great progress” was being made in the negotiations but “much will wait” until after Japanese upper house elections expected in July — with rumours rife Abe might also call a snap general election at the same time. The serious diplomacy starts on Monday, when Trump will be the first leader to meet Japan’s new emperor, Naruhito, who has been on the Chrysanthemum Throne for less than a month following his father’s historic abdication. But Sunday was more about cementing diplomatic bonds between the two countries over the leaders’ shared passion for golf — the fifth time they have found time in their schedules for a round. Under a cloudless sky with sizzling temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit), the two world leaders played at the Mobara Country Club course in Chiba, just outside the capital. Aerial footage on Japanese television showed the pair practising and teeing off, as well as putting on the manicured greens, accompanied by former professional golfer Isao Aoki. As Trump’s Marine One helicopter thundered in, shattering the serenity of the course, a casual-looking Abe was there to greet him, sporting white trousers and a blue top. Trump was dressed in a red sweater and black trousers with a red USA cap. Abe later tweeted a selfie of the two grinning into the camera, as the pair relaxed before the formal element of Trump’s four-day trip begins. After the golf, the two leaders were set to take in the final day of the sumo “basho” or tournament in Tokyo. Trump will present Japanese grappler Asanoyama with the “President’s Cup” — weighing 60-70 pounds (27-32 kilograms) and measuring 54 inches (1.4 metres). Security around the hallowed Ryogoku Kokugikan sumo stadium was ultra-tight, with fans screened with metal detectors and asked to sip from any bottle they planned to take in to prove the liquid was not dangerous. With fans being screened, there were long queues to get into the arena with spectators waiting in an unseasonable heatwave. “I thought we would see some level of tight security. But I didn’t realise that it was going to be this much,” 76-year-old Hisato Koizumi from Tokyo told AFP as he waited in a long line for metal detectors and safety inspections. “We got today’s tickets by chance. I don’t like this,” added Koizumi. Miyo Hirase, 80, also complained about the heavy security. “This is truly overkill. (The Trump visit) is not enjoyable. It’s a pain. There aren’t so many bad people in Japan,” she said. Excitable fans were also warned against throwing their seat cushions — as tradition dictates whenever a yokozuna or grand champion is felled — lest the president be hit. “Acts such as throwing of cushions inside the arena may result in ejections and punishments. Please absolutely refrain from doing so,” a flyer said, according to footage from national broadcaster NHK. “We shall not sell tickets in the future to those who carry out these acts.” While Abe and Trump were at the golf course, their wives Melania and Akie enjoyed a display of “digital art” at an exhibition that has been a smash hit in Tokyo.last_img read more

Process of cancelling land rights granted to Vadras firm started Haryana official

first_imgChandigarh: The Haryana government has begun the process of cancelling the licence given to Robert Vadra’s Skylight Hospitality to develop land that was later transferred to realty major DLF for Rs 58 crore, officials said on Thursday. Director of the state’s Town and Country Planning Department K M Pandurang said the procedural formalities to cancel the licence have been completed keeping in with provisions of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975. The formalities include serving notices on the coloniser and giving it an opportunity to be heard. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ “We have to follow procedure of cancellation which we are following and the formalities have been completed. We gave them notice and hearing opportunity, which has concluded. Now, we have to take a decision and that process is on,” he said. He said the decision on the land linked to Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, was likely to be taken soon. Pandurang, however, did not disclose what replies the other party had given in response to the opportunity of being heard. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K He said the mutation of the land was set aside by the then director general, consolidation of holdings in 2012, thus affecting the title of the land. “There were issues regarding title of the land,” he said. Ashok Khemka, a 1991-batch IAS officer, had shot to limelight in 2012 when he cancelled the mutation of the land deal between Skylight Hospitality and DLF. A year ago, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said the licence for the land in Gurgaon’s Sector 83 which was sold Skylight Hospitality and then transferred to DLF was “deemed to have lapsed”. The licence for the land parcel had not been renewed, Khattar had then said. On reports claiming that the DLF has been paying the government for renewal of the licence, Pandurang said, “We will see what we will do in this regard.” The BJP has alleged there were irregularities in the land deal during the term of the Bhupinder Singh Hooda government in the state. Reacting to the development, state Health Minister Anil Vij said, “Everyone knows about irregularities that were committed in various land deals during the Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led regime.” “During the previous regime, those who were favourites of the powers were benefitted. When BJP came to power, we brought in transparency in every sphere of governance and put a stop to such irregularities that were committed earlier.

IndianAmerican Sikh cop killed in ambush style in US

first_imgHouston: A trailblazing Indian-American Sikh police officer, who made national headlines when he was allowed to grow a beard and wear a turban on the job, has been shot and killed in an “ambush-style” attack in a “ruthless, cold-blooded way” in the US State of Texas, a senior official said on Saturday. Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal, a 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s office and its first Sikh deputy, was gunned down while conducting a mid-day traffic stop in northwest of Houston on Friday, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportThe officer said Dhaliwal, 42, was taken by helicopter to a hospital where he died, a decade after becoming the force’s first Sikh and pushing for a historic expansion of religious rights in the department. “I’m sad to share with you that we’ve lost one of our own. Our HCSO Texas was unable to recover from his injuries. There are no words to convey our sadness,” Gonzalez said in a tweet. “We mourn the loss of a wonderful father, husband, son brother, friend, and last but not least, a Texas Peace Officer,” he said. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protestsGonzalez said Dhaliwal, who kept his Sikh articles of faith including a turban and beard, stopped a vehicle with a man and woman inside. One of them got out and shot him at least twice in an “ambush-style” attack at least twice in a “ruthless, cold-blooded way”, he said. Dhaliwal worked with United Sikhs, a global humanitarian relief and advocacy nonprofit, to help organise the donation of truckloads of supplies for first responders after Hurricane Harvey. “Deputy Dhaliwal is known to everybody as someone with a giving heart. Post (Hurricane) Harvey, when we needed the help most, he brought an 18-wheeler of people that he gathered together, that came all the way from California to deliver goods to our community,” Gonzalez said. Robert Solis, 47, has been charged with capital murder in connection with Dhaliwal’s murder, the sheriff’s office said in a tweet. A weapon was recovered that deputies believe was used to kill Dhaliwal, Gonzalez said. “It’s the worst day, the worst nightmare for any police executive,” Gonzalez said. “This guy had a heart of gold, he treated his brothers and sisters in law enforcement as if they were just brothers and sisters. He thought of them before he thought of himself. He thought of the broader community before he thought of himself,” said Adrian Garcia, Harris County police commissioner. Garcia implemented a religious accommodation policy that allowed Dhaliwal to wear the traditional turban and beard of the Sikh religion. Dhaliwal was married and was a father of three children. “Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal was a trailblazer. He was an example for many. He represented his community with respect and pride,” Garcia said. Since 2015, Dhaliwal was the “history-making” police officer in Texas to serve while keeping his Sikh articles of faith. He was allowed to wear the turban and beard while patrolling the streets in order to bolster cultural diversity. With this policy, one of the largest sheriff’s offices in the country had affirmed that a person does not have to choose between their faith and a career of service. Since 9/11, misperceptions about Sikhs’ religiously mandated turbans and beards have led to an increase in discrimination against the community. Policy changes like that at the Harris County Sheriff Office and other law enforcement agencies across the country aim to combat this stigma while also giving qualified men and women a chance to serve the community. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner tweeted on Friday night saying Dhaliwal “represented the diversity and inclusiveness of our community and everything that is good.” Texas Governor Greg Abbott released a statement Friday saying “this tragic loss is a grave reminder of the risks that our law enforcement officers face every single day.” “I thank the officers who bravely responded to apprehend the suspect, and I assure you that the state of Texas is committed to bringing this killer to justice,” Abbott said.last_img read more

Kolkata In a humanitarian gesture Chief Ministe

first_imgKolkata: In a humanitarian gesture, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday rescued an injured woman and sent her to a nearby hospital.The Chief Minister turns a good samaritan for a 20-year-old girl who suffered injuries after on Durgapur bridge. The victim has been identified as Subhra Das, a resident of Dasnagar Howrah. When the Chief Minister was returning after inaugurating the Suruchi Sangha Puja, she noticed the injured the girl lying on Durgapur Bridge. She instructed the officials to stop her convoy. She got down from her car and stepped up to the girl and inquired about her health condition. She instructed the officials who were accompanying her to immediately shift her to a hospital. She also instructed the state Urban Development and Municipal Affairs Minister Firhad Hakim to take necessary steps to ensure that the injured girl can be given immediate attention. Hakim was also in Banerjee’s convoy at the time of the incident. After being instructed by the Chief Minister, the officials took the victim to a nearby private hospital. She has been undergoing treatment there. It is assumed that the girl might have fallen while boarding a bus. The exact reason behind her injuries is yet to be confirmed by the police. The police have also started a probe into the incident. It may be mentioned here that this is not for the first time that Banerjee came forward to rescue an injured victim. On earlier occasions also she rescued for a few injured persons. It was Banerjee who started ‘Safe Drive, Save Life’ campaign to spread awareness campaign among the commuters and driver alike. The main purpose of the move was to reduce the road accidents in the state. During her administrative meetings in the districts she instructed the government officials to identify the black spots which are essentially accident prone. She also stressed the necessity of involving the local people in order to transport an injured person to the hospital in minimum possible time.last_img read more
