(Several children have come down with rashes)On Tuesday, while Angus and Mamakwa met with chief and council, newly appointed minister O’Regan released a statement saying that plans to help Cat Lake are underway.“Establishing a community plan to replace homes that have been identified for full replacement,” the statement said.The statement said the following plans are in the works including, forming a task force between Cat Lake, Indigenous Services Canada, and Windigo Tribal Council, establishing a priority order for repairs, which will allow Windigo Tribal Council and the community to begin immediate work, establishing a community plan to replace homes that have been identified for full replacement.Keewaykapo said what he wants is a plan with some details.“We’ve talked to the minister twice, short phone calls, basically telling us we’re going to do what we can to help Cat Lake but other than there hasn’t been any timelines or dollars so we have nothing to work with to move forward,” he said.Keewaykapo said part of the plan they do have includes bringing in 40 mobile homes on the winter road for families most affected by mould.But that will required immediate funding from the government.“The government has seen this before, they’ve done nothing. A crisis of this magnitude doesn’t just happen,” said Angus.“This is the result of the indifference we’ve seen at the department of Indian Affairs and previous ministers.”APTN News asked Indigenous Services if the minister had plans to travel to Cat Lake – a spokesperson for the minister’s office said the minister has not been invited to the community by the firstname.lastname@example.org@willowblasizzo Willow FiddlerAPTN NewsThe chief of the Cat Lake First Nation says Indigenous Services Minister Seamus O’Regan needs to visit the community to see its housing crisis first hand.“To us it’s really, really critical, it’s life threatening,” said Chief Matthew Keewaykapo. “We lost elders from respiratory problems, we lost children. They can’t go to school because they have skin diseases. We have one medivaced to London, Ontario from playing in the mold in his house.“It flared up when it got into his skin, we nearly lost that kid.”In January, Cat Lake declared a state of emergency because of the poor housing conditions that are making children like Lucas Mezzetay so sick they have to be medivaced out for treatment.Keewaykapo said the ministry responded by sending officials to meet with them last week.They were shown pictures of the skin conditions effecting children like Lucas, and Wynter, a two year old toddler who also lives in a home infested with mould.“They didn’t commit to anything even though we presented them with pictures, what our plans were,” said Keewaykapo. “To me it was an insult, I didn’t even bother seeing him off after that’s how disappointed I was with the meeting.”(Cat Lake sits 422 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay, Ont)This week there was another meeting but this time NDP member of parliament Charlie Angus and Ontario member of provincial parliament Sol Mamakwa.They toured several homes in the community of about 700 people.“What I can’t get over is the complete breakdown of health I’ve seen,” said Angus who has also raised the issue in the house of commons. “We need a full medical assessment in this community.“There’s people suffering from all manners of ailments that have to be related to the breakdown of health from the constant exposure to black mold.”The leadership in Cat Lake says that constant exposure to black mould has been an ongoing concern for years.In 2006, Keewaykapo was the community’s health director.“And at that time already we were getting letters from the health department that there some kids that were being affected by the mold at that time,” he said.Health professionals are still issuing similar letters warning of the dangers of mould for young children.“Please consider relocation or renovation for this house as the allergens and poor heating may be a possible cause of (the child’s) symptoms,” said the letter from Dr. Ayesha Malik.(Mould is a common problem in the community of Cat Lake)The problem with that is there is no where for the two-year old and her family to move to.There are at least 60 families in Cat Lake who need housing.A recent inspection of more than 100 houses funded by Indigenous Services revealed what community leaders already knew.“A majority of the homes had mold. We had suspected all along that it was these illnesses,” said Keewaykapo.That’s just a visual inspection said councillor Derek Spence.He said there’s more you can’t see.“Because once opening up these walls it would expose a lot of the mold and we can’t really do that,” he said.

Government is providing new skills training and employment support to residents who need it most.Survivors of violence and abuse, as well as older workers, will have access to skills training and employment support so they can participate in the Province’s thriving economy.The Province is inviting service providers to submit proposals to deliver skills training and employment services under two new Skills Training for Employment programs posted to B.C. Bid. Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training, says people who experience violence and abuse often face barriers when it comes to a good-paying job and this program is expected to help overcome those barriers.“Survivors of violence and abuse, and older workers face multiple barriers to finding steady, good-paying jobs. I’m proud that our government is expanding programs that help break down those barriers. We’re lifting up the people who need it the most to improve their quality of life so they will benefit from a prosperous economy that works for everyone.”According to the Government, the $3.2-million Survivors of Violence and Abuse program will provide support to over 300 people per year. The $3.2-million Older Workers 55+ program will help 400 people update their skills.Both programs will include skills training and wraparound supports, to address the barriers to employment that older workers and survivors of violence and abuse can face. The programs will be available regardless of eligibility for Employment Insurance, giving those with multiple barriers more access to skills training and supports for employment.Starting in 2019, the Province is investing $26.8 million per year in six STE programs, to help up to 3,500 people throughout B.C. access training and wraparound supports to obtain sustainable employment. Wraparound supports address barriers to participation in skills training and employment. Examples include counselling, mentoring, child care, transportation, disability supports, work experience, wage subsidies and equipment.The STE programs are funded through the Workforce Development Agreement, which was signed in March 2018 with the Government of Canada. read more
Rabat – Morocco strongly condemned the despicable terrorist attacks, which targeted the Arab Republic of Egypt during the past three days, claiming the lives of several victims among high-ranking civil servants, and army and police members.While extending its heartfelt condolences and sincere compassion to the victims’ families, Morocco expressed its full solidarity with Egypt against all attempts to undermine its security and stability, said on Wednesday a statement by the ministry of foreign affairs.The Kingdom of Morocco also reiterated its refusal of any justification of terrorism and its condemnation of this destructive plague that runs counter all human values and the teachings of the Islamic religion, it added. The Egyptian section of the so-called Islamic State, also known as ISIS launched a series of attacks against the Egyptian military in Sinai, claiming the lives of 70 people, most of whom are soldiers.With MAP read more
Curtis Buxton spent 17 years working in the oil and gas sector before losing his job last March as a project manager for oilfield services company Schlumberger.Two weeks after getting laid off, Buxton was taking a solar industry course in B.C. and looking for work in the renewable energy sector. It took a few months, but a project manager position finally opened up at SkyFire Energy in Calgary.Recruiters say many companies are hesitant to hire oil and gas workers because they’re concerned they will jump back to the industry when it recovers. But Buxton says he had already approached the company several times showing his interest.“I was persistent and I showed that I wanted to enter the industry,” said Buxton.Like most who leave the oil and gas industry, he has taken a pay cut, but he says it was the right move.“Realizing this was something I was pretty sure was going to make me happy was also a strong motivator for taking that pay cut.”Nathan Tomusange was laid off from a company manufacturing oil rig equipment in March last year.To switch industries he went back to school for a supply management course. But he says after sending out dozens of resumes, he’s only had one call back from a potential employer, and that company eventually chose someone with more experience.At 54 with three boys at home, he says he isn’t waiting around for his ideal job and has started looking into getting a taxi licence. But he’s also continuing with more courses, trying to figure out which industry will offer the most stability.“We’re all wondering where the jobs are,” he said. “Where are they? What industries?” CALGARY — For 36 years, Sue Jones rode out the ups and downs of Alberta’s oilpatch. But after she was laid off last March, she knew her days in the oil and gas industry were over.[np_storybar title=”After the bust, oil boomtown Fort McMurray faces threat of ‘shrinking city’ syndrome” link=”Alberta’s oil hub Fort McMurray is learning the hard way that there is no such thing as simply going back to normal after a long boom that got cut short by the collapse in crude prices”] Alberta’s oil hub Fort McMurray is learning the hard way that there is no such thing as simply going back to normal after a long boom that got cut short by the collapse in crude prices. Read on [/np_storybar]“I’m done,” said Jones, 56, who worked in data management and document control before she was let go.“I’m older. I’ve been laid off so many times in oil and gas.”Great pay and plenty of jobs attracted thousands to the province, but as the decline in crude prices stretches on, some industry veterans are deciding they can no longer take the boom and bust roller-coaster.Jones says this downturn is “the worst one” she’s seen, and figures released Tuesday by Statistics Canada would appear to back her up. Alberta lost 19,600 jobs last year — the most since 1982.After months of searching, Jones finally found a job last week working in the back office of a heat and power supply company in Calgary. She has taken a pay cut, but says she won’t be going back to the oilpatch.OPEC makes strongest plea yet for deal with rivals to stop oil’s 72% free fallForget the glut, even market insiders are saying oil has entered irrational territoryView from Calgary: Low oil prices could mean more cuts in the oilpatchLynn Berry, a Calgary career counsellor who also runs a government-supported career boot camp, says more people need to start looking elsewhere.“People just need to get out of this, ‘I need to find work in the oil and gas, and I need to make X number of dollars,’ because the reality of today’s economy, it might not happen and they need to figure out what they’re going to do next,” said Berry.“If we’re feeling bad we tend to cocoon, and we tend to fall back on what we’ve done in the past, and what we’re saying now is that’s just not working.” said Berry. “If you’re just waiting until it comes back, then you’re wasting your time and your skills and your talent.”Susan MacDonald, a registered psychologist and career counsellor, says the downturn is a great opportunity for people to look for a career that better suits them.“When they get laid off they’re seeing it as an opportunity to say, ‘Maybe I should go and check things out,”‘ said MacDonald.One of her clients in her late 20s left a career as an economist in the oil industry to go to nursing school. Another in his late 30s left an information technology career in the industry to go to school to become a doctor.Canadian Press/Jeff McIntosh read more
ONUR said it appears that the news reports refer to a meeting Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga, Chairperson of ONUR, had with the Foreign Correspondents Association (FCA) in Sri Lanka. ONUR insisted former President Kumaratunga did not make a statement as alleged by Brig. Roshan Seneviratne and at no point did she mention or accuse the Military, as a whole, of sexual exploitation of women in the North. “Elaborating what has happened in the last decade or so she shared her experience of working with the Tamil community, stated that the people are not singling out war crimes courts as the single-most important matter while some in the Tamil Diaspora do. She further stated that ONUR has been made aware of the fact that there is sexual abuse still going on by officials, demanding favours even to sign a document, even some Tamil officials, some Grama Sevakas and some people in the forces, and this needs to be dealt with sternly,” ONUR said.ONUR noted that it is ironic that the incidents of physical abuse referred to in the statement by the Army are all incidents regarding which Chandrika Kumaratunga initiated action in her capacity as the Commander in Chief during the period up to 2005.ONUR also noted that the Army Media Director’s statement does not speak of a single incident of violence regarding which any action was instituted by the authorities after Madam Chandrika Kumaratunga’s tenure of office. (Colombo Gazette) “We are surprised that a senior Army official has not thought it fit to peruse and understand the news reports of a statement allegedly made by a former Head of State and Commander in Chief. ONUR is an institution that is coming under the purview of the Commander in Chief, the President and is chaired by madam Kumaratunga. It would have been good practice and common courtesy for the Director – Media of Army Headquarters to seek clarifications from ONUR before rushing to issue a statement,” ONUR said.ONUR recalled that while answering a series of questions from reporters on accountability and justice, former president Kumaratunga mentioned various examples including the disciplinary actions taken during her time as President by enforcing a Zero Tolerance Policy with regard to violence against civilians, within the forces, to ensure action of some do not bring disrepute to the entire military. The Office for National Unity and Reconciliation (ONUR) today rejected a statement issued by Army spokesman, Brigadier Roshan Seneviratne.The statement by the Army spokesman alleged that on 17th February 2017 English language papers carried an article where it quoted “the head of an ethnic reconciliation body” having stated “sexual exploitation and abuses of Tamil women by the Army in the post war scenario” and such statement would “jeopardize the reconciliation process”. The media release by Brig. Roshan Seneviratne also refers to a few incidents to demonstrate that “the Army fully cooperated with the civil court cases against the accused that were on trial”. read more
Then-redshirt-freshman Gareon Conley (19) makes a tackle during a game against Illinois on Nov. 1 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 55-14. Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editor“There is tremendous value in appreciating what you’ve earned.”Those were the words of Ohio State cornerbacks coach and special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs on Tuesday when he addressed the media after spring practice No. 9.Coombs, now entering his fourth season at OSU, said the Buckeyes should be able to reflect on and celebrate the school’s eighth national title from 2015, but they also need to focus on the task at hand.For now, part of that task is replacing Doran Grant at cornerback as spring practice rolls on.But while one corner spot remains open, the other has been locked down by redshirt-sophomore Eli Apple, who Coombs said has impressed throughout spring practice.“Eli was coming off of an illness last spring, and we didn’t have any idea of how he was going to play,” Coombs said Tuesday. “I thought he had a very good season and I think he has had a much better offseason and spring than he has ever had.”Apple accumulated 53 total tackles last season and added three interceptions while playing in all 15 games, including 14 starts.He also led the team in pass breakups with 10, edging out Grant, who totaled nine in his senior campaign.But even though Apple has momentum heading into 2015, Coombs said the returning starter is not yet a complete product.“He is not finished, and he knows that. We talk about that all the time,” Coombs said. “(I am) really excited about him.”As for the position mirroring Apple, Coombs seemed to have narrowed the competition down to two players.Redshirt-sophomore Gareon Conley was the first name out of Coombs’ mouth when asked about the other corner spot, and he added that Conley has bulked up this offseason.“Gareon has had a very good spring. He has put on weight, he has put on strength,” Coombs said. “He showed up at 168 pounds, now he’s 190 pounds. He is a very fast player, (and) his skill set continues to improve.”Conley played sparingly last season, totaling 16 tackles to go along with two pass breakups. He earned a start against Michigan State, but was replaced by Apple after giving up an early touchdown.Coombs also named a player who is getting his first taste of college football spring practice.“(Sophomore) Damon Webb, this is his first spring. It’s a lot, it’s hard. He is playing corner and nickel and he is handling it extremely well,” Coombs said. “He is one of the most competitive players on the team.”And while the two-horse race might come down to Conley and Webb, Coombs added he is hopeful that redshirt-freshman Marshon Lattimore will be available next week for full-speed drills.Lattimore suffered a season-ending injury toward the beginning of the 2014-15 season.With a number of young players set to make an impact in 2015, Coombs said he still believes his unit will be able to maintain the success of the press-man coverage defense that was implemented last season.“They will be good and ready,” Coombs said. “I love my room right now, I love my unit. They are really working at the craft of studying themselves, grading themselves every day; they show up ready to work.”The Buckeyes are set to play their annual Spring Game at Ohio Stadium on April 18 before starting the 2015 regular season on the road against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., on Sept. 7. read more
In a surprise move the Wagner Society’s committee decided it could no longer justify staging the masterclass following last year’s loss-making event, held at Princess Alexandra Hall, home of the Royal Over-seas League.However, Dame Gwyneth pointed out that it was far from unique for events staged by the society to fail to break even.“The main reason given for cancellation of the masterclass, namely that the equivalent event lost money last year, does not hold water. While it did make a modest loss (of marginally over £1,000), it was certainly not unique in that respect,” she said.“Indeed, I note from the accounts for the year ended 31 December 2017 that, of the 11 events staged by the Society last year, all bar three lost money. By far the biggest loss was in fact incurred by the singing competition itself, but I have heard no mention of cancelling the competition.”She also accused members of the committee of trying to “misrepresent” the reason last year’s masterclass made a loss.Dame Gwyneth said she had booked the London Welsh Society as a cheaper alternative to the Royal Overseas League for last year’s masterclass, and claimed that it was the committee which took the decision to return to Princess Alexandra Hall, which cost £1,200 to hire.She said: “This is not reflected in the minutes of the committee meeting of 19 June 2017, which falsely stated that: ‘if we had St Botolph’s for the MC it would have broken even, but Dame Gwyneth said we needed the ROSL’. “I am at a loss to understand why certain committee members would be seeking to re-write history in this way.”Dame Gwyneth said the cancellation of the masterclass was “no way to treat” Michelle Alexander and Adam Music, the promising young singers who won the prize as part of the Wagner Society’s annual singing competition.“It is a great pity that the committee appears to have seen fit to let down these young singers in this way,” she said. “I very much want to honour my commitment to give the masterclass to the competition winners – it is a real shame that the committee appears determined, on the flimsiest of pretexts, to prevent me from doing so.”The soprano, who won a Grammy award for her interpretation of Brünnhilde in Der Ring des Nibelungen in 1983, traces her conflict with the society’s committee to their bitter dispute in 2014, when she says she raised concerns about the society’s book-keeping and financial records.“Despite the fact that those concerns proved to be well-founded, certain committee members responded by asking me to resign and then, when I did not, threatening me with legal proceedings for defamation. Fortunately, the matter was settled when they made a public apology to me and my husband,” she said.Richard Miles, chairman of the Wagner Society committee said: “The Committee does not recognise the version of events put forward. As far as the Committee is concerned there is no ‘agenda’ against our much-revered honorary President.“We are a body of Trustees who are under the unglamorous fiduciary obligation to act in the interests of our membership, which we discharge diligently and professionally. This includes safeguarding the Society’s finances.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. One of Britain’s most distinguished singers has accused fellow devotees of Richard Wagner of repeated attempts to undermine her position and “rewrite history”.Dame Gwyneth Jones has spoken out for the first time about the long running feud which has riven the Wagner Society, of which she has been president for nearly three decades.In the latest skirmish, revealed last week by The Sunday Telegraph, the society found itself at odds over a decision to cancel a sought-after public masterclass to have been held by the award winning soprano.The society’s committee took the decision to cancel the prestigious masterclass after last year’s event ran over budget.But Dame Gwyneth has now hit back, disputing the circumstances surrounding its cancellation and suggesting the decision appeared to be part of a wider agenda against her.The award-winning singer, who appeared in Dustin Hoffman’s film Quartet, survived an attempted coup against her in 2014 after fighting off accusations that she had become “dictatorial”.She said: “Given my long-standing support of the Wagner Society over the last 28 years, I am frankly surprised and dismayed that certain committee members should continue to conduct themselves in this way.” A scene from Dustin Hoffman’s Quartet, starring Dame Gwyneth Jones (left), along with Pauline COllins, Billy Collins and Patricia LovelandCredit:AF archive / Alamy Stock Photo read more
Following the success of the Albion Process at GeoProMining’s Ararat Processing Plant in Armenia, GPM have signed a collaboration agreement with Glencore Technology for the marketing of the Albion Process.GPM has successfully used Glencore Technology’s atmospheric leaching process to increase overall recovery from sulphide concentrates in their Ararat plant from 20% to over 95%, defying expectations and targets. GPM are now evaluating a second line of Albion Process.The new agreement combines GPM’s expertise in Albion Process operation and their knowledge of the Russian refractory gold market with Glencore Technology’s expertise in processing technology.The Albion Process plant at Ararat, which is now operating above design throughput and recovery levels, was fully supplied by Glencore Technology and installed, commissioned and ramped up in partnership with GPM Gold.While Glencore Technology has three certified Albion Process testing facilities – Core Resources, TOMS Minerals in Irkutsk and XPS/Kingston Process Metallurgy – this new agreement creates an entirely new collaboration.The agreement means the GPM plant can now be used as a training facility for what is recognised as a proven combination of ultrafine grinding and oxidative leaching. And it means Albion Process clients can gain a faster ramp-up through better technology transfer.GPM will have the right to market the technology in Russia in partnership with Glencore Technology. The Ararat plant will become an exemplary plant to show potential clients the Albion Process in operation and to provide training of operations, maintenance and technical personnel.The Ararat plant will even be used to test-treat third party materials to evaluate the technology ahead of commissioning.The collaboration agreement continues the 6 years relationship between GPM and Glencore Technology and begins immediately. read more
RIDGEFIELD — Ridgefield is finally getting a full-service grocery store.Rosauers Supermarket, a chain of grocery stores based in Spokane, will anchor an upcoming plaza at the Port of Ridgefield’s Discovery Ridge property at 45th Avenue and Pioneer Street.Port of Ridgefield commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday in favor of a purchase-and-sale agreement of the property, and Port CEO Brent Grening revealed news that a supermarket was coming to town.“The long famine is over,” he said after the vote.Construction is expected to break ground this summer, in the hopes of opening by spring 2019.Per the agreement, the port will sell 9 acres to Discovery Ridge LLC for $1.2 million. The holding company will then contract FDM Development, of Ridgefield, to build the 53,000-square-foot grocery and four extra buildings for businesses.The Port of Ridgefield expects to keep a quadrant of the 30-acre Discovery Ridge. Plans are to site a gas station there that would also be operated by Rosauers. Landing the grocery store, though, is a big item checked off Ridgefield’s own shopping list.Though the city has Ridgefield Pioneer Marketplace, officials say most residents need a larger option that is closer than stores in Woodland or Salmon Creek. Ridgefield City Councilor Don Stose said citizens have echoed as much in a 2015 citywide survey where they claimed it was the biggest hurdle facing the city, he said. read more

1:53 Share your voice Amazon’s Eero takeover will feed its smart home obsession 1 Comment Been an honor & pleasure having Tom Alberg on Amazon’s Board. Tom joined in 1996 and has been with us ever since – over 22 years. I’ll miss his sound judgment, deep well of business & life experience, and his quick wit. He’s a smart business person and even better human. Thx Tom!— Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) April 11, 2019 Now playing: Watch this: Several publications linked Bezos’ comments about third-party sellers to calls to break up big tech companies, particularly from US senator and 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren. His comments Thursday could be viewed as a defense against such antitrust concerns.While Bezos typically uses these letters to celebrate parts of his growing business, it’s still notable that he avoided addressing several recent problems. In February, Amazon scrapped its plans to build a new, 25,000-employee headquarters in New York City, following heavy blowback from local activists and politicians. Additionally, Bezos’ personal life has been on display for months since he and his wife, MacKenzie, announced their impending divorce.Bezos has commented publicly on the divorce, including an update this month, but has largely avoided making a public statement about the failed effort in New York.’Match our $15 minimum wage. Do it!’In the letter, Bezos also called on his retail rivals to keep raising their minimum wages. Amazon boosted its minimum wage to $15 an hour in November.”Today I challenge our top retail competitors (you know who you are!) to match our employee benefits and our $15 minimum wage,” he wrote. “Do it! Better yet, go to $16 and throw the gauntlet back at us. It’s a kind of competition that will benefit everyone.”Rival Costco last month raised its minimum wage for store workers to $15, and Target plans to go to $15 by the end of next year. Walmart’s minimum wage is $11.Also Thursday, Amazon said that board member Tom Alberg, a venture capitalist who’s been on the board since 1996, will be stepping down. Bezos personally thanked him Thursday for his work with Amazon. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos called on other major retailers to keep raising their minimum wages. Jim Watson / AFP/Getty Images This year hasn’t been easy for the world’s richest person. Of course, you wouldn’t know that from reading his annual shareholder letter, which came out Thursday morning.Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos uses these letters to talk broadly about Amazon’s efforts to innovate and to invent things, while also pointing to his long-term plans for the business. This year was no different, with Bezos talking up the many successful features created for Amazon Web Services, the company’s cloud-computing business, and the growth of Amazon’s Echo smart speakers.Bezos started the letter showing off the strong growth of independent sellers on Amazon, with 58% of sales through the company now coming from these third-party merchants and not directly from Amazon. The company has spent the past few years emphasizing its work helping small and medium-sized businesses grow on its platform, looking to use those stories to counter impressions that Amazon is hurting local businesses and forcing brick-and-mortar stories to shutter.”Third-party sellers are kicking our first party butt. Badly,” Bezos wrote Thursday. Amazon Jeff Bezos Tags Internet read more
Sunil Grover and Kapil SharmaTwitterSunil Grover, who has had ugly fight with Kapil Sharma, has revealed why didn’t come to The Kapil Sharma Show with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif to promote Bharat.”I didn’t feel like going to there (The Kapil Sharma Show) so I didn’t go,” Sunil Grover told Bollywood Hungama when he was asked about his absence on the show.Sunil said that it was necessary for him to go The Kapil Sharma Show to promote the film adding that there’s no need for anybody else when you have Salman and Katrina at one place.When Sunil was asked if he would ever work with Kapil in future, he left it to destiny for things to happen while recalling all the beautiful moments they both had together. He said that he would definitely work with Kapil again if it is written in his destiny.Sunil confessed that he met Kapil a couple of times during social gatherings. It was being speculated that Sunil may join Kapil on his show to promote his film but eventually it didn’t happen. Sunil had earlier confirmed that Salman had suggested him to come back on the show considering their laugh riot chemistry but the comedian had said that the superstar didn’t force him to be on the show. Kapil Sharma, Salman Khan, Katrina KaifTwitterAs expected, Salman and Katrina graced The Kapil Sharma Show with their presence but Sunil Grover, once again, failed to show up for reasons that almost everyone can predict.Sunil had earlier said that he doesn’t even watch The Kapil Sharma Show adding that he does not watch shows which he does not feature in.Meanwhile, in Ali Abbas Zafar directorial Bharat, Sunil plays the role of Salman’s onscreen childhood friend named Vilayayti who gets tightly slapped by Katrina for poking her with his finger.

Like most cuisines, the culinary flavours of South Korea showcase its rich history and culture. But, foodies in India often find themselves short of options when it comes to this cuisine which is much less popular than its Japanese and Chinese counterparts. Chef Ho Min Myung, a South Korean chef visiting India, lists the missing names on India’s South Korean platters. From the staple Bibimbap, a sticky-rice bowl served with a lot of vegetables, and Japchae, or stir-fried glass noodles, to the more complex chicken dish Dakgangjeong or tofu stew Sundubu-jjigae – options are aplenty for South Korean cuisine lovers, but lack popular following here. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor anyone who has got their hands on the food of this East Asian country, they would recall a decent number of vegetable-based side-dishes that are served with the main dish. What makes this food so unique and organic? “Since the ancient times, South Koreans are used to eating grains and vegetables. We have plenty of resources from forest because the country has more than 70 per cent of its land as mountains, and field and rice farming has been active.” Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”We have four distinct seasons and various seasonal ingredients are used depending on its seasonal taste and nutrition. Usually, South Koreans have rice, Kimchi and side dishes for a meal,” said Chef Myung. The chef says the cuisine makes a healthy diet as it uses a large amount of greens. “Although it’s a trend in South Korea to be a vegetarian due to awareness about healthy food, meat is never missed on an important occasion. However, the cuisine has various vegetarian dishes apart from meat dishes with various reasons, such as topographical features, tradition and growth of a healthy diet trend.” Namul, Japchae, Kimchi and fermented sauces of South Korea contain the original tastes of vegetables for the global vegetarians. Furthermore, South Korean table manners also give a glimpse into their culture. “The first thing is respect to elders. Young people would not lift their spoon to start a meal until the oldest hold their spoon and start eating. “Also, you are requested to eat each and every dish on the table equally to show respect to the one who cooked and the one who eats with you,” the chef, who was on his first India visit, said.
