Inquisitive koala goes for midnight stroll around Australia hospital

first_imgClose A koala has been caught on camera going for a night-time stroll around a hospital in Australia, checking out the waiting room and emergency department.The koala, who has been named Blinky Bill, was picked up by the CCTV at Western District Health Service hospital in western Victoria.Rohan Fitzgerald told ABC the animal appeared very casual and relaxed as he did the rounds: He seemed to know exactly what he was doing.After about three minutes, at about 3:30am, he investigated sufficiently and made sure everything was in order and then decided to exit the building.Blinky Bill was filmed on 20 April and the hospital has now posted the footage on its website. The film has become an overnight sensation with thousands of views from across the world.Hospital staff saw the koala but decided to leave him alone. He went through a number of automatic doors, but could not gain access to one so wandered into another room before leaving the hospital.Normally we dont have people come into our emergency department that are less than a foot tall, Fitzgerald said.He wasnt that obvious to begin with. He entered the doors and theyve opened automatically for him and thats come into our waiting room.Ive heard there have been koalas visiting local homes in the area for a number of years now.This is the first instance Ive seen a koala come into our hospital. You never know who youre going to see when you come to Western District Health Service.last_img read more

New telecom policys ambitious target Internet access to 13 billion Indians

first_imgManoj Sinha, Minister of Communication and Minister of state for railwaysPIBThe new Telecom Policy of India, expected in March 2018 will set an ambitious target of providing affordable internet access to almost 1.3 billion people and push domestic manufacturing to cut down on imports.”Internet to all will be the basic principle and to give a boost to telecom manufacturing would be a key factor of the new telecom policy,” said Communication Minister Manoj Sinha to Economic Times.The government last year decided to introduce a new telecom policy to facilitate growth of the sector and meet the requirements of next generation technologies.According to the reports, the Department of Telecommunication (DoT) has already started the work on the new telecom policy this year. Minister Sinha also said that the policy will be finalised by March 2018.Last month, a research firm KPMG said that mobile Internet users in India is expected to surge and cross the 300 million mark by 2017 from about 159 million users at present.Though India has low Internet penetration compared to other developed nations, the country still has the third largest Internet user base in the world with more than 300 million users of which 50 percent are only mobile Internet users.Reports also suggest that the number of internet users in India will rise to 730 million by 2020, as against its 350 million users at the end of 2015. By the end of this decade India would also surpass the number of internet users in the US.The new telecom policy once implemented would boost the number of mobile internet users and with cheaper facility it will also penetrate the rural India.According to the telecom minister the new policy is forward looking and current challenges of new technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) will also be taken care of. A rickshaw puller speaks on his mobile phone as he waits for customers in front of advertisement billboards belonging to telecom companies in Kolkata February 3, 2014.REUTERS/Rupak De ChowdhuriAnalysts forecast that high-speed data services with cross-industry IoT applications and AI-driven services could open up close to 20 percent of additional revenue opportunity for the industry.The players in the telecom industry are working on the call drop challenges and to improve the service quality.Once the new telecom policy is implemented, it is likely to remove the distinction between local and STD calls too. It is also expected to ensure faster and cheaper availability of internet service. The service providers will no longer be needed to take separate licenses for operations in different parts of the country. A single licence would be enough.last_img read more

Indian theatre faring poorly

first_imgIt’s faring very badly… because the kind of state subsidised or state sponsored theatre that we have is very mediocre, because of the bureaucracy involved and a lot going on that is very unhealthy for artistic growth’, Dattani said in an interview. An out-of-the-box-thinker, the Mumbai-based Gujarati has also donned the director’s hat for movie ventures such as the Shabana Azmi-starrer Morning Raga and Mango Souffle (2002), tagged as the country’s first gay male film. He was in the city to conduct an intensive acting workshop organised by art and culture magazine Kindle in association with the iLEAD educational institution and The Corner Courtyard, a newly-opened boutique hotel. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’He is the first Indian playwright in English to receive a Sahitya Akademi award. And to pump fresh life into regional theatre, there’s a need for more money, more collaborations and at the heart of it, artistic integrity, says he.‘Collaborations are good…one can learn from marketing techniques…how they (international theatre) can sustain themselves in stiff competition. Acknowledging that films are “our bloodline”, he conceded that while Bollywood can be meaningful, its shallowness has influenced commercial Indian theatre. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix‘Bollywood is inspired by shallow Hollywood and commercial Indian theatre is inspired by shallow Bollywood’, he said pointing out the vicious circle. Moreover, the ace playwright highlighted the flip side of blindly aping western concepts in theatre, that is adopting a text-based approach while traditionally it is a rich blend of text, dance, music and drama. International influences, he said, ‘are not necessary at all’. ‘In fact, sometimes I feel they are detrimental. I am not against cultural collaborations but what I am talking about is blind following of western concepts and systems – which is what modern Indian theatre does. Noting some encouraging trends in Indian theatre, such as its becoming more visually rich – in terms of intelligent use of space and spontaneity – and shifting away from verbosity’, Dattani said the surge in numbers of international collaborations and experiments hasn’t yielded anything original.Known for exploring sensitive issues, he dubs recent instances of curbing creative freedom in India as an ‘unhealthy trend’ but also a ‘backhanded compliment’ to the might of art forms in bringing about change.‘I think it is a very unhealthy trend and in a way it’s a backhanded compliment to theatre because people are saying that theatre is powerful enough to make a difference and that is why you are bringing in all these restrictions,’ Dattani added.‘With these restrictions the first freedom that goes is the freedom of expression and the rest follows,’ said the man behind thought-provoking works like Dance Like a Man, Thirty Days in September and Final Solutions. In his tryst with theatre and films, the 55-year-old has delved deep into topics of gender bias, communal tensions and homosexuality among others. A staunch believer in theatre’s power to ‘reflect society’, Dattani said the medium should be channeled to showcase the current scenario of increasing violence against women as well as bring out the ‘much-ignored’ lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender (LGBT) community.last_img read more
