State will provide kits to trainees under NULM Hakim

first_imgKolkata: Mayor Firhad Hakim said on Wednesday that kits to the trainees under National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM) will be provided by the state government and asked the concerned persons to ensure that best training is provided to the beneficiaries.Hakim took stock of the various projects that have been taken up under NULM. The projects have been badly hit as the Centre is no longer sending the kits required for various schemes. Apart from the Mayor, Swapan Samaddar, Member, Mayor-in-Council (Bustee Development), Khalil Ahmed, Municipal Commissioner, senior officials of State Urban Development Agency (SUDA) and chairmen of borough committees attended the meeting. Hakim said the schemes taken up under the mission are important and their implementation will benefit hundreds of people.

Trinamool Congress decided to provide training to 20,000 people. Accordingly, 18,000 people received training under various schemes. After the BJP government came to power in 2014, the supply of kits was reduced without any prior announcement, affecting the schemes badly. The schemes are meant for people coming from economically challenged backgrounds.

But there is often inordinate delay in issuing driving licence and as a result, the youths who have received training cannot utilise their skills. Hakim said he would take up the matter with the state Public Vehicles department, to ensure that the delay in issuing driving licences is reduced. The Mayor said that he would hold weekly meetings in the boroughs to expedite administrative work. He will talk to the councillors directly and resolve the issues that come up. There are 16 boroughs in KMC. It may be mentioned that Atin Ghosh, the Deputy Mayor who is also in charge of KMC’s Health department, holds coordination meetings in every borough to conduct anti-larvae drives throughout the year.last_img read more

A Watch That Shoots Lasers Yes Please

first_img 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global November 21, 2014 Every morning when I wake up, I wish I could shoot lasers from my wrist. Don’t you?One enterprising hobbyist heard my calls and created a watch that, yes, shoots lasers. (Weep. Tear.)The watch was built by Patrick Priebe — my new hero — using a machined metal body, a carbon-coated cover and a 1,500-miliwatt laser. As you can see in the demonstration below, the laser isn’t just some puny beam of light. It burns hot enough to pop a series of balloons.Related: Virtual Reality Meets DIY With Samsung’s Project BeyondDid I mention the watch also has an LED screen and tells time, too?One can only assume that Priebe took inspiration from James Bond, who used a laser watch in 1995’s GoldenEye to dramatically escape a train car that was about explode. Kinda cool. Why anyone would really need a laser watch is beyond explanation — other than tech-geek fantasy, anyway. Not to mention it is dangerous and probably breaks a few laws.Related: Watch This Fearless Frenchman Laugh in the Face of Death on a Rocket-Powered Bicycle at 207 Miles Per HourPriebe apparently isn’t the only person crafty (crazy?) enough to create a laser watch. Here’s a version that features a 700 miliwatt laser:And — because why not? — here’s the clip from GoldenEye where Bond blasts through the train floor with his laser watch. (It happens around the 1:10 mark, and the clip is conveniently set to video-game music.) Enjoy.Related: Gold? Silver? Pffft.
