SAIL executives said a sudden jump in demand for steel - up 45 percent since 2015 - to replace old tracks and lay new ones meant it was struggling to meet production targets. The company said the launch this year of a long-delayed new rolling mill at its main plant at Bhilai, in eastern India, would boost its capacity by around 100,000 tonnes. Losing even a small part of its sales to the railways - its top customer - would be a blow to SAIL, which has lost money in seven straight quarters. "SAIL's performance has been very poor and given that we have a MoU (Memorandum of Understanding), any failure will not be appreciated," a government official said, quoting from a Jan. 11 letter from the railways to the steel ministry that oversees SAIL, threatening to sever a deal to buy rails almost exclusively from the company. Two other government officials confirmed the railways' threat.

President Donald Trump shows his signature on an executive order on the Keystone XL pipeline, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. (AP/Evan Vucci) Published in partnership with True Activist . Before the struggle over the Dakota Access pipeline came to the forefront of national news, there was the Keystone XL pipeline. Commissioned in 2010 by the TransCanada corporation, the seven-year-long debate over the pipeline’s future has been symbolic of the fight over the future of the United Statesenergy policy in the face of diminishing fossil fuel supplies and climate change. While former President Barack Obama won the approval of environmentalists in 2015 for his rejection of the pipeline, his successor Donald Trump has now put an end to the debate by officially issuing the necessary permits for the project’s completion.

The offensives coincide with another in the eastern neighborhoods of Damascus, where heavy clashes are underway between army forces and Takfiri militants. The militants have failed in their attempts over the past days to reach the heart of the Syrian capital amid stiff resistance by government forces. The clashes are taking place despite a truce which has been in place across Syria since last December. The ceasefire does not include the Takfiri terrorists of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham and Daesh. On Thursday, UN humanitarian advisor on Syria Jan Egeland said the delivery of humanitarian aid to almost 300,000 civilians in the outskirts of Damascus has been cut due to the continued fighting in the area. Nearly 161,000 civilians in the besieged Douma rural area and 142,000 others in Kafr Batna have run out of food stocks and all the routes to the areas have been blocked.

com . Also, please read and disseminate the following post as it captures just how HUGE PIZZAGATE really is. This is it folks! This is the one we’ve all been waiting for. PIZZAGATE: Why it was exposed just before the 2016 election? Feb 18, 2017While the satanic powers within Deep State may have blown Pizzagate wide open for purposes of exerting even more power over their minions, perhaps the Highest Power is using the unprecedented revelations to save the child victims, as well as to shut down the global control mechanism (i.e. Pedogate) altogether. Pizzagate: For the victims Jan 21, 2017In 2016, the largest pedophile ring ever discovered was exposed by the FBI(source) coincidentally after Anthony Weiner’s laptop was seized. Mainstream media hardly spoke of it and in fact even covered it up. CNN would rather publish real news, such as Donald Trump eating KFC with a fork.

Immigration arrests have drastically increased since the early 1990s, according to the report. Immigration arrests doubled in a four-year span from 1994 to 1998, doubled again from 1998 to 2006, and double yet again from 2006 to 2013. The increase in arrests beginning 2009 was in part the result of a spike in the number of multiple arrests for a single person. The study comes three days after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released its first weekly report on the impacts of so-called sanctuary jurisdictions. ICE revealed on Monday that local authorities released more than 200 undocumented immigrants from prisons and jails in sanctuary jurisdictions over a week-long span earlier this year. A homicide suspect, a convicted arsonist, and multiple individuals convicted of aggravated assault were among those released by local law enforcement across 118 jurisdictions between Jan.

In this Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016 file photo, American soldiers participate in a training exercise at Basmaya base, 40 kilometers southeast of Baghdad, Iraq. (AP/Karim Kadim) In comments today at the State Department, Rex Tillerson confirmed what has been reported for awhile, that the US intends to keep its thousands of ground troops in Iraq over the long-term, even after ISIS ends up being defeated. Pentagon officials have been arguing for a more or less permanent deployment in Iraq since before the election, and Defense Secretary James Mattis, along with Gen. Joseph Dunford, were in Congress today again arguing for the idea of keeping troops in Iraq to prevent ISIS from ever coming back. Tillerson presented this open-ended deployment as a “stabilizationoperation, while arguing that dedicated significant military resources to post-war Iraq for the sake of stability would not amount to “nation-building,” something President Trump has warned against.

Now, away from animal smells and noise, it had become the most expensive. Before the Otis safety elevator, previous passenger elevators had been installed in England in the 1830s and America in the 1840s, though the hemp ropes that held the elevators up would often break and kill passengers. In 1852, the first more stable ropes made out of wires were introduced. The first manufacturer of a moving platform in the U.S. appears to have been Henry Waterman in New York. Otis, however, never got to see his invention in action: he died on April 8, 1861, nearly three months after the U.S. Patent Office granted this Improved Hoisting Apparatus a patent on Jan. 15, 1861.

EVERY journey begins with a single step. So was my 42.195km journey – my maiden full marathon. I have been running regularly. What started off some fi ve years ago as casual running to keep fit eventually became a passion. Soon enough, this passion led me to signing up for running events with races ranging from 5km to 30km. Last year, I took part in over 30 such events, including fun runs, trail runs and obstacle course races. Ten of these events were half-marathons (21km). I would not say I am the best or fastest runner among the lot – I just run at my own pace, hoping to do my best to complete the runs. Sometime late last year, my friends and running mates, who either joined me in some of these runs or were aware of my activities, challenged me to take my running to the next leveljoining a full marathon. After thinking about it deeply, I picked the full marathon category at the Twincity Marathon 2017, which took place in Cyberjaya on Jan 15.
