The Indian Railways is reportedly planning to impose a “safety cess” to mop up funds for its proposed Rs 1.1 lakh crore non-lapsable National Railway Safety Fund (NRSF) so as to upgrade its infrastructure to improve safety standards and avoid accidents.Even though the railway department is contemplating on seeking about 60% of the funds for the safety programme from the finance ministry, it is planning to raise the remaining funds from other measures including a cess.”Apart from the funds expected from the finance ministry, innovative methods would be used to generate resources,” a senior official told The Financial Express.”We may introduce a safety cess for a particular period and may tap the private market too,” the source added.In November last year, the Railway Ministry had formed a six-member committee to work out a blueprint for the programme including the identification of sources for fund generation and areas that need spending.The railways plans to use nearly 20-30% of the funds to upgrade rolling stock and setting up train collision avoidance systems. However, a significant part of the proposed fund will be used to build rail over bridges and under bridges, track renewals, elimination of manned and unmanned level crossings and repair of railway bridges.A proposal to set up a safety funds comes in the wake of rising number of accidents on its network. It saw 69 accidents between 1 April and 15 November in the current fiscal year. Earlier, then Railway Minister Nitish Kumar had introduced a railway safety fund with a corpus of 17,000 crore but it lapsed in 2008.In the four years to 15 November, 2015, accidents at “unmanned level crossings accounted for 38.9% of total accidents and 53.4% of total fatalities”. Currently, the public transporter has 19,407 manned and 10,440 unmanned level crossings on its network.”We have eliminated around 590 unmanned level crossings, closed 192 manned level crossings and constructed around 79 ROBs and 328 RUBs up to November,” a railway official said.
Share Eric Gay/APA 3D-printed gun called the Liberator. A man was sentenced to eight years in prison Wednesday for violating a court order after he printed his own 3D gun.Eric Gerard McGinnis was not supposed to have a gun. After a violent altercation with his girlfriend, a Texas judge barred him in 2015 from possessing a firearm. A year later, McGinnis tried to buy a gun anyway, but the purchase wouldn’t go through after a background check revealed the court order.So, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, McGinnis obtained a barrel, stock, upper receiver and grip — and then used a 3D printer to create the gun’s firing mechanism. He assembled the parts into a short-barrel AR-15 style rifle, and headed out into the woods with what federal attorneys called a “hit list” of Democratic and Republican lawmakers, including their office and home addresses. The list was titled, “9/11/2001 list of American Terrorists.”McGinnis was arrested in 2017 after officers heard three shots in the woods. On Wednesday he was sentenced to eight years in prison.“When he realized he couldn’t legally purchase a firearm, Eric McGinnis circumvented our gun laws by 3D-printing his weapon, eliminating the need for a background check,” said Erin Nealy Cox, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas.While McGinnis was being sentenced in Texas, Democrats in the House of Representatives were attempting to make good on their promise to tighten gun laws. The Judiciary Committee on Wednesday approved two bills expanding background checks for gun purchases. Those laws would require checks even at gun shows or in private sales. According to Politico, the legislation “stands virtually no chance in the Senate,” which is controlled by Republicans.McGinnis’ attempt to legally purchase a firearm was stymied by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. But legislation proposed yesterday in the Senate deals directly with 3D printable guns. A group of Democrats proposed a law that would maintain current laws against publishing 3D printed gun information over the internet.The Senate Democrats criticized President Trump’s proposal to transfer oversight of 3D guns to the Commerce Department, arguing that would make it easier for people to get access to blueprints.“The Trump administration basically gave anyone – including criminals and murderers – a green light to 3D print and sell untraceable ‘ghost guns,’” said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn, according to The Washington Examiner. “Thankfully, the courts have blocked this for now, but Congress needs to act to close this glaring loophole before anyone gets killed.”It’s not just Congress that is considering gun legislation. In New Hampshire on Wednesday, state lawmakers considered multiple bills that would expand background checks to close the so-called “gun show loophole”; impose a seven-day waiting period for most firearm sales; and prohibit possession of firearms at school zones throughout the state.In Nevada, the state senate also approved a bill designed to close the gun show loophole. According to the Reno Gazette Journal, all eight members of the Republican minority party opposed the bill, arguing the law was a “feel-good” measure being passed for political reasons.Copyright 2019 NPR.

Tim DavieBBC Worldwide is due to launch a male-skewing factual entertainment network called BBC Brit, completing its line-up of three new international channel brands.Speaking at a Broadcast Press Guild lunch in London, BBC Worldwide CEO Tim Davie confirmed the plans, with the channel due to go live during the coming 2014/15 financial year.BBC Brit will launch along with BBC Earth, which already exists as a branded programming block, and new drama network BBC First – both of which were named as new genre brands for BBC Worldwide’s portfolio of channels and services in October last year.All three are slated to roll out on a market-by-market basis. BBC First will debut in Australia on the Foxtel platform in August, though launch dates and territories for BBC Earth and BBC Brit are yet to be announced.Discussing the new BBC Brit channel, Davie said that it will primarily be offered as a pay channel, but said “we wouldn’t rule out being free-to-air in certain markets, depending on the ad market.”In terms of content, BBC Brit is likely to air programmes such as auto show Top Gear, as well as factual-entertainment history programming and quiz formats, though Davie said this could vary by market. The channel will air older shows, as well as new commissions, he said.Asked whether the new line-up of BBC Brit, BBC Earth and BBC First would result in BBC Worldwide closing some existing BBC-branded international channels, Davie said: “Where we’ve got successful, profitable businesses, we’ll leave them, but actually in a lot of cases we’ll transition.“I think there’s other markets – across Asia, central Europe, [and] a lot of places –where you’ve got in some cases a quite small BBC imprint. There [it] would be more effective to transition out and get to brands that I think have got increased horsepower.”More broadly, Davie said “it’s fair to say that our channels business is under-exploited.” He claimed that focusing on consumer brands and moving BBC Worldwide from a “B2B company to a B2C company in channels” would help transform the business.Giving an update on the progress of BBC Worldwide’s existing strategy – which also includes content investment and a focus on digital innovation – Davie said Worldwide is on track to meet its target of around £200 million (€243 million) investment in premium content in the next financial year.On the digital side, he said that BBC Earth, as well as becoming a linear channel brand, would also launch as a new section on both the BBC.co.uk website and the international BBC.com.BBC Worldwide will also become the commercial operator of the planned BBC Store, on behalf of the BBC, if the Trust approves the pay-to-download digital content scheme, said Davie.
