first_img There’s a Honeywell security system, complete with cameras and sensors so they can monitor things whether they’re home, out running errands or away on vacation. A fire suppression system, complete with indoor sprinklers, is also inside, but you’d never know it. App-enabled Hunter Douglas shades are all over the house, as well as Control4-compatible Zigbee light switches.There are four designated audio zones, too, for listening to music throughout the home.rob-jones-house-tour-18Pam is particularly excited about the kitchen, where they plan to cook regularly using food they grow themselves. Tyler Lizenby/CNET When Pam walks into the kitchen, she covers her mouth and Rob hugs her. It’s the room she’s most excited about, they place where they will prepare meals with food grown on their own farm. The kitchen is packed with a lot of useful tech. There’s a motion-activated sink faucet that turns on and off when you wave your hand next to it. A microwave mounted to the lower cabinet, and upper cabinets that pull down, are easier to reach.The adjustable induction cooktop is the standout, though. It rises and sinks with the press of a button, so Rob can lower it to see what he’s doing when he’s using his wheelchair and raise it up when he’s standing.”It’s the little touches. We have done 75 of these [homes] in some various form or another, over the years. We know in some ways what these guys need before they know what they need,” Trevor says.rob-jones-house-tour-21Rob tests out the buttons that raise and lower the cooktop. Tyler Lizenby/CNET Moving in and moving onRob and I sit down to talk about his new house and how he’s feeling now that he and Pam have finally seen it. He admits that they have driven by it since construction began in the fall of 2018 (the project began in 2016, but it took time to find just the right plot of land), but that this really is the first time they’ve been inside. “I’ve always just lived in apartments that either had stairs or narrow doorways, or close quarters, or showers that are hard to get into and a lot of stuff that just isn’t set up for me very well. And now we’re here in this house and everywhere I look it’s made for me. I mean, [it’s] a million times better than anything I’ve ever lived in before,” Rob explains.Veterans are sometimes resistant to the offer of a custom-built home, Trevor told me earlier. “In all honesty, none of these guys believe they deserve a home,” he added. Rob was no different. He didn’t feel sorry for himself after his injury. In fact, he quickly moved on from what happened to working on his recovery and deciding what was next. “I kind of accelerated through the normal grieving process, and skipped right to the acceptance stage of the process pretty quickly. I didn’t spend any kind of energy wishing what had happened hadn’t,” Rob says.I ask him how he was able to move on so quickly and he jokes that he might have a “psychological disorder” that helped him out, but there’s much more to it than that.He says that he never expected to die from his injuries, but instead immediately began to worry about how much help he might need from loved ones — and he didn’t want that for them. He thought about the Marines still in Afghanistan, too. “Their mental states were gonna be directly related to how I handled myself, and so it just became a natural thing to just go ahead and move on, because I was trying to do what was best for them,” he explains.Basically, Rob just keeps moving forward no matter what, including completing his fourth Tower Climb earlier this month, an annual 104-story stair climb of the One World Observatory in New York, hosted by Tunnel to Towers in honor of the people who lost their lives on 9/11. rob-jones-house-tour-42Pam and Rob have been working with Tunnel to Towers on this home project since 2016. Tyler Lizenby/CNET Scott Nokes, a retired US Marine Corps corporal and rifleman who became ill from dysentery while in Afghanistan, ultimately resulting in double below-the-knee amputations and visual impairment, is inspired by Rob. When I mention Rob, Scott jokes that he’s a “sore subject,” since Rob beats him at the Tower Climb every year. Scott, who lives in New Jersey, is getting a smart home of his own later this year, courtesy of Tunnel to Towers. He says seeing guys like Rob and retired US Army staff sergeant and quadruple amputee Travis Mills, he realized he’d be OK. “This is just what you do; you just keep going. That’s what they always did: Why would I do anything different?” Scott asks. I speak briefly with Rob over the phone about a month after my visit to see how things are going. He’s making breakfast while we talk — soft boiled eggs and bacon, on the new cooktop. Last night for dinner he made lamb meatballs, salad and sweet potatoes, he tells me, as I quietly salivate on the other end of the line. Pam is already selling produce at four different farmers markets and is making deals with area restaurants. “The chickens are thriving,” he says. He talks about how easy the shades are to control with his phone; they still haven’t set up the voice control.I’m sure they’ll get to it, but for now, they’re just busy living their lives. This is part of CNET’s Tech Enabled series about the role technology plays in helping the disability community. For injured veterans, smart tech is crucial to quality of life How one man made Google Home more accessible for anyone Code Jumper gives children who are blind the tools to code Retired US Marine Corps Sgt. Rob Jones sits in the office of his new home in Loudoun County, Virginia.  Tyler Lizenby/CNET “I don’t get emotional,” retired US Marine Corps Sgt. Rob Jones says, standing next to his wife, Pam, as he admires the freshly painted walls of a new smart home customized for his needs as a double above-the-knee amputee.This isn’t a warning preamble before a tearful outburst. Rob, a Purple Heart recipient who was severely wounded in Afghanistan in 2010 by an improvised explosive device, really doesn’t cry. Pam confirms it. Rob alternates between walking with prosthetics and using a wheelchair. This house, located roughly 50 miles west of Washington, DC in Middleburg, Virginia, was custom-built for him by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, a nonprofit that, among other charitable work, builds homes full of smart home technology for military personnel and first responders critically injured in the line of duty. About 3.6 million Americans and more than 250,000 veterans use wheelchairs, a 2018 study reports. More than 1 billion people in the world need assistive technology, and only 10% of that population has access to it, according to the World Health Organization.Assistive technology is designed to help people with disabilities live more independently, and the smart home industry is a mainstream branch of assistive tech. Rob and Pam’s new home will feature a combination of custom assistive products and readily available smart devices, things they’ve never had in previous homes.Rob and Pam picked out the paint colors, the furniture and countless other details for the house, but this is the first time either of them has been inside its walls.  Post a comment 0 Smart Home The 2,800-square-foot ranch rests on 13 acres, which is no accident. The couple dreams of having a working farm here. Pam has already mapped it out. She plans to grow garlic, onions, tomatoes and a variety of other vegetables. She and Rob have 44 chickens hanging out in a box at their current apartment — “it’s a big box; they’re very happy,” Pam adds.They’re eager to move in — Rob, Pam and likely the chickens, too. It’s been three years since they first said yes to Tunnel to Towers’ offer and it all culminated with today’s unveiling, which happened just minutes ago. “Every step along the way since my injury, there’s always been at least one or two things in any kind of domicile where it’s just not perfectly set up, or it’s uncomfortable, or I have to make concessions for things. And with this home, that’s not gonna be the case,” Rob explains.Rob and Pam are both accomplished athletes. They met at the 2012 Paralympics in London. He won a bronze medal for rowing. Pam, who has psoriatic arthritis, won two gold medals at the games, also for rowing. Rob has since combined his athletic pursuits with his advocacy work to raise money for veterans’ organizations — and to inspire others to do the “unthinkable.” In the winter of 2013-14, Rob biked 5,180 miles across the United States, from Maine to California. In the fall of 2017, he ran 31 marathons in 31 days — that’s 26.2 miles every day for a month straight (and all in different cities in the US, Canada and the UK). Their house and their future farm, which they’ve named Gathering Springs Farm, is just the beginning for this vibrant couple. I’m one of the lucky few getting a peek behind the scenes, specifically to see what tech is in their home and how it could free up their time to focus on those bigger goals.  7:46 “Due to the vast integration and customization possibilities of Control4, our systems have been installed for many veterans and those who use technology to improve their lives. We love seeing the ways that a Control4 smart home can help, even [in] just the smallest ways,” Brad Hintze, Control4 senior director of product marketing said over email.Retired US Army Col. Phil Swinford has Control4 in his home too, which was set up for him by the Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center at the McGuire VA Hospital in Richmond, Virginia. Swinford is an incomplete quadriplegic, meaning he has some mobility but relies on a wheelchair. McGuire has recommended Control4 to over two dozen veterans in the past five years, the hospital’s assistive technology program coordinator, Melissa Oliver, tells me.The brains behind Rob and Pam’s Control4 system sits in a hallway closet. Everything else is out in the open, including the main Control4 touchscreen panel, which is mounted to the wall in the living room. That’s their main access point to all of the devices when they don’t want to use a phone or voice commands. Both of the bathrooms in the house have smart toilets. “They deodorize, they clean, they sanitize, they flush [and] the seats warm up,” Trevor Tamsen, assistant manager of media relations at Tunnel to Towers, explains. Most people say they don’t want the automatic toilets at first, John Ponte, director of smart home for Tunnel to Towers, adds. But then they end up loving them. House tourRob and Pam move from room to room, finally getting to see in person all of the things they’ve been imagining since 2016. Rob is characteristically cool-headed. Pam covers her mouth in excitement. Smart home system Control4 is the main thing powering their home’s connected tech.

Investigators search Cambridge Analytica office

first_imgA person is seen inside the building which houses the offices of Cambridge Analytica as investigators from Britain`s Information Commissioners Office entered, following the granting of a search warrant by a High Court judge, in London, Britain on 23 March.Investigators from Britain’s data watchdog searched the London offices of Cambridge Analytica, the data analytics firm at the centre of a storm over allegations it improperly harvested Facebook data to target U.S. voters.About 20 officials, wearing black jackets with “ICO Enforcement” on them, arrived at the firm’s central London offices on Friday evening soon after a High Court judge granted a search warrant sought by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).The officials concluded the search around 0300 GMT on Saturday. “We will now need to assess and consider the evidence before deciding the next steps and coming to any conclusions,” an ICO spokesperson said in a statement.The officials, who were let into the building by security guards, were seen checking books and papers through the windows of the second-floor offices on London’s busy New Oxford Street, a Reuters witness said.Elizabeth Denham, head of the ICO, sought the warrant after a whistleblower said Cambridge Analytica had gathered private information of 50 million Facebook users to support Donald Trump’s 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.Britain is investigating whether Facebook, the world’s largest social media network, did enough to protect data.U.S. lawmakers on Friday asked Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg to come to Congress to explain to explain how the data got into Cambridge Analytica’s hands, adding to pressure on the firm, which is under fire from investors and advertisers.Separately on Friday, Britain’s Guardian newspaper said a former Cambridge Analytica political consultant had accused the company’s management of misleading the British public about work it did for a pro-Brexit group before the vote to leave the European Union.Brittany Kaiser, a business development director at the company from 2014 until earlier this year, told the Guardian that Cambridge Analytica carried out data-crunching and analysis work for Leave.EU, while publicly denying it was doing so.Arron Banks, a major donor to Leave.EU, told the newspaper that Leave.EU did not receive any data or work from Cambridge Analytica although the UK Independence Party, which also campaigned for Brexit, gave the firm some of its data which the firm analysed.”But it was not used in the Brexit campaign. Cambridge Analytica tried to make me pay for that work but I refused. It had nothing to do with us,” Banks was quoted as saying.Efforts by the ICO to investigate Cambridge Analytica had hit a snag on Thursday after a judge adjourned its application to search the British consultancy group’s office by 24 hours.U.S. and European lawmakers have demanded an explanation of how the British consulting firm gained access to the data in 2014 and why Facebook failed to inform its users, raising broader industry questions about consumer privacy.Facebook’s Zuckerberg said on Wednesday that his company made mistakes in mishandling data and promised tougher steps to restrict developers access to data.last_img

first_imgHeads up, corporate types with valuable data that needs protecting: everything you type into your computer could be captured by spies, and you’d never suspect the device they used to do it.The FBI has issued a warning about a “new” keylogging threat. What makes this one different than most other keyloggers is that it’s not software that has to be loaded onto a computer, and it’s not a device that gets plugged in, either. Well, not plugged into a target computer, anyway.It’s a wireless device that just needs to be plugged into a nearby power outlet. Once it’s powered up, it can start sniffing the airwaves for text typed using a Microsoft cordless keyboard. It’s small enough that it can be cleverly disguised as a run-of-the-mill USB charger. The USB port is even fully functional, so if you happen to plug in a phone or a tablet, it’ll charge like it would on an actual charger (though likely at a slightly slower rate).This is no ordinary USB wall wart.Frightening stuff, right? It’s precisely the kind of high-tech threat that corporations and agencies need to be informed about, which is why the FBI sent out a bulletin. Of course, they waited over a year longer than they should have to give everyone the heads up.The device they’re talking about is the same one that security researcher extraordinaire Samy Kamkar demonstrated in January of last year. It’s a simple little device, it only costs about $10 to build, and Kamkar shared all his code and build notes 15 whole months ago. But hey, it’s not like anyone with malicious intent would have whipped one up in the meantime, right?last_img read more

first_img Most of today’s smartphones follow a familiar design: clamp the thinnest casing with the narrowest bezels possible around a large display. Jelly is not like most smartphones.It’s also not a real phone yet, but its makers have launched a Kickstarter campaign to turn their concept into a real device. Jelly’s screen measures just 2.45 inches on its diagonal, just over an inch less than the one the iPhone 3g was equipped with when it launched nearly a decade ago.Jelly’s is a lower resolution panel, too, at 240 x 432 pixels, though that does give it the edge over Apple’s first iPhone when it comes to pixel density. This isn’t a phone that’s about providing users the ultimate visual experience.Jelly is meant to be a cheap ($69 for early birds) yet fully-functional smartphone that you can discretely cram into just about any pocket. Measuring 3.6″ tall by 1.7″ wide and half an inch thick, you should have no shortage of options. Covert Dock for Nintendo Switch Fits in Your PocketRugged BlackBerry Clone With QWERTY Keyboard Hits Kickstarter There are two configurations being offered. Both run Android 7.0 and feature a 1.1GHz quad-core processor, dual nano SIM slots, front and rear cameras, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and GSM/CDMA/LTE support. The base model feature 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage while the Pro version doubles both those numbers.Jelly has already destroyed its $30,000 funding goal. At the time of writing they were closing in on $180k, so clearly plenty of people out there are interested in what they’re pitching… or at least want to be able to say they own the world’s smallest smartphone.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

Oldest evidence of writing found in Europe

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Oldest written document ever found in Jerusalem (PhysOrg.com) — In a study to be published this month in the Proceedings of the Athens Archaeological Society, archaeologist Michael Cosmopoulos of the University of Missouri-St. Louis shares his discovery of a clay tablet showing the earliest known writing in Europe. Located in the southwestern corner of Greece, the town where this discovery took place is Iklaina. This town dates back to the Mycenaean period of 1500 BC to 100 BC, and around 1400 BC was conquered by King Nestor.Cosmopoulos has been actively excavating this site for 11 years and has found evidence of a Mycenaean palace, including colorful murals, Cyclopean walls, and an elaborate drainage system made from clay pipes. However, this tablet has been his most unexpected find.Tablets of this nature were made from clay which was allowed to dry in the sun, making them very brittle and easily destroyed. The tablet they discovered however, had been thrown in a garbage pit and burned, thus firing the clay and leaving it preserved.The estimated 3,500 year-old tablet only measures around one inch by one and a half inches, but shows various symbols of Linear B, an ancient Greek writing consisting of 87 signs, each signifying one syllable. It appears that the Mycenaean’s used this tablet to record economic matters of interest to those in the ruling party. From what the researchers can distinguish, the front of the tablet shows markings appearing to for a verb relating to manufacturing. The back of this small tablet shows a list with numbers and names.While this is not the oldest writing ever found, it is the earliest example of writing found in Europe. Writing found in China, Egypt, and Mesopotamia is believed to date back to 3,000 BC.Originally believed that such tablets were only found in major state capitals or the time period, this find brings to that they were also used in what are considered second-tier towns. Researchers are hoping this find will help to shed some light on how these ancient Greek kingdoms were run. © 2010 PhysOrg.com More information: www.archetai.gr/site/eng_page_uc.html Citation: Oldest evidence of writing found in Europe (2011, April 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-04-oldest-evidence-europe.html Explore furtherlast_img read more

They will then have to connect both devices using the same WiFi connection. Choosing the “PC Stream” option on the headset’s main menu will bring up all available Viveport PC apps on the display.HTC’s Viveport Infinity service has more than 2,000 virtual reality applications for PC and mobile devices so far. This gives it about 10 times more content than the Viveport M marketplace for the Vive Focus Plus.Connecting the standalone headset to Viveport Streaming also allows subscribers to try out new VR titles without having to wait for a suitable port for the device.HTC already made a crack at using VR gear to stream PC content. The company tried to push a third-party software known as VRidge, which offered a similar feature for the original Vive Focus. However, the app had difficulties operating seamlessly on the headset and never really got off the ground.Meanwhile, Viveport Streaming reportedly works better with the Vive Focus Plus than VRidge. The new program is said to connect to Viveport Infinity automatically and offers a more intuitive and seamless integration with the service.Mobile-Friendly VR HeadsetsHTC plans to roll out the streaming service to other Vive Wave-capable 6DoF headsets available in the market such as those made by Chinese companies Pico and iQiyi.The company hopes that Viveport Streaming will help it compete better with rival Facebook as far as mobile-friendly VR headsets are concerned.”Viveport Streaming expands the accessible content for standalone devices from hundreds of titles to many thousands instantly, by enabling one-click access to the entire existing PC VR content library,” HTC said.”This will allow users to enjoy high-quality VR content rendered from a high-end PC without having to worry about a wired connection or buying an additional VR streaming accessory.” TAG Vive Focus Plus, HTC, Streaming, Viveport Infinity ⓒ 2018 TECHTIMES.com All rights reserved.

Obama Castro hail new day for USCuba relations

first_imgHAVANA, Cuba – U.S. President Barack Obama and his Cuban counterpart Raúl Castro vowed Monday in Havana to set aside their differences in pursuit of what the U.S. president called a “new day” for the relationship between the neighbors.Castro acknowledged there were still “profound” differences over human rights and the decades-old U.S. economic embargo. He pointedly refused to acknowledge that Cuba holds political prisoners.But Castro said the former enemies should take inspiration from U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad, who in 2013 managed on her fifth attempt to become the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.“If she can do it, we can do it too,” Castro told journalists after more than two hours of talks with Obama in Havana’s Palace of the Revolution, the nerve center of the communist government that has ruled Cuba since the takeover by Raúl’s brother Fidel Castro in 1959.Obama, the first U.S. president to visit Cuba in 88 years, hailed a “new day” — a “nuevo día,” as he said — in relations between the former Cold War foes.Trying to draw a line under past heavy-handed U.S. intervention in the island’s affairs, Obama vowed that “Cuba’s destiny will not be decided by the United States or any other nation.”But he insisted that Washington was not going to give up pressing for political freedoms in Cuba, where the Communist Party controls politics, the media and the economy.The United States “will continue to speak up on behalf of democracy,” he said.Meeting Castro for only the third time for formal talks, Obama was greeted by a military band at the Palace of the Revolution.Obama, under pressure back home to show that his scrapping of more than half a century of U.S. hostility to the Castro regime is paying off, then sat for discussions against a backdrop of tall tropical plants and the two countries’ flags.Earlier he laid a wreath at the monument of Cuban independence hero José Martí. On Tuesday, he was to give an address carried live on Cuban state television, and then attend a baseball game between Cuba’s national team and Major League Baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays, before flying out. Cuban President Raúl Castro speaks at a press conference with U.S. President Barack Obama in Havana, on March 21, 2016. It was obvious Castro wasn’t used to fielding questions from reporters. Nicholas Kamm/AFPObama in Cuba: excitement and cold realityObama’s visit has raised hopes among struggling Cubans that decades of economic and political stasis may be coming to an end.But the brief detention of dozens of pro-democracy protesters hours before Obama’s arrival Sunday served as a stark reminder of the regime’s iron grip on power.And despite the excitement among ordinary Cubans, officials appeared to be taking pains to give a restrained welcome.Castro did not greet Obama at the airport Sunday, sending his foreign minister instead, and a heavy police presence has ensured that Cubans have no chance of gathering spontaneously at any of Obama’s appearances around the city.“I think Raúl does not want a warm relationship with the US. He sees it in limited terms for the moment — tourism revenue and remittances plus the changes to the sanctions,” said Paul Webster Hare, a former British ambassador to Cuba who teaches international relations at Boston University.Obama’s administration is betting that forcing Cuba to open up diplomatically, as well as a gradual relaxation of the embargo, will promote democratic change. But Obama is defending himself from critics who say he has given away too much.Arriving in Havana, Obama admitted change is not going to happen “overnight.”“Change is going to happen here and I think that Raúl Castro understands that,” he told ABC News. “Although we still have significant differences around human rights and individual liberties inside of Cuba, we felt that coming now would maximize our ability to prompt more change.” Tourists walk next to a poster of Cuban President Raúl Castro and U.S. president Barack Obama in Havana, on March 18, 2016. Yamil Lage/AFPAwkward momentsIn a sometimes awkward public appearance in which Castro fiddled with his headphones and complained about translation problems, the Cuban president unexpectedly fielded questions from U.S. reporters.“Give me a list of the political prisoners and I will release them immediately,” Castro said when challenged about the Communist island’s human rights record.“After this meeting is over, you can give me a list of political prisoners. And if we have those political prisoners, they will all released before the night ends,” he said.Human rights groups immediately shot back with the names of dozens of prisoners being held in Cuba.And at the end of the conference, President Castro attempted to hoist President Obama’s arm into the air for a victory photo op. Obama balked and the two shuffled offstage.Watch a video of Monday’s entire conference.

BJP’s efforts to get him over two-thirds of the total strength of the electoral college File image of NDA’s nominee for Presidential Election 2017 Ram Nath Kovind Image courtesy: Twitter/airnewsalerts While some of the members have been supportive of the BJP on most issues others too have come around to its appeal to vote for Kovind a senior party leader said Rajeev Chandrasekhar an investor who is part of the NDA in Kerala; Sanjay Dattatraya Kakade a Maharashtra businessman who has joined the BJP; Subhash Chandra the Zee Group chairman elected to the Upper House with the BJP’s support and industrialist Parimal Nathwani are among the independent MPs in the House Amar Singh who has been expelled from the Samajwadi Party and AV Swamy of Odisha are two other members under the independent category "We have approached them and are expecting that they will vote for Kovind" a BJP leader said With a majority of votes firmly behind him Kovind’s election as the next president is virtually guaranteed and the saffron party is now working overtime to win over independents smaller parties and fence-sitters to increase his lead over Meira Kumar the opposition’s candidate Kovind is currently on a tour of different states to speak to lawmakers supporting his candidature He will be in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on Tuesday and in Karnataka on Wednesday He will fly to Arunachal Pradesh on 6 July BJP leaders said and then visit Nagaland and Manipur the next day to meet MPs and MLAs from these states He will travel to Madhya Pradesh on 8 July The killing of BJP youth leader Gowhar Bhat in Kashmir on Thursday was horrifyingly dramatic; his throat was slit But it is worth focusing on his life as much as on his death The very fact that the young man had chosen to become a grassroots activist of the BJP—that too at a time when it was obviously dangerous for militancy has been on the rise over the past few years—is remarkable That hundreds of mourners gathered for his funeral is a telling sidelight One has only to compare the situation with half a century ago—yes not the `90s but the late `60s—to realize the significance of that congregation For there was a brief phase back then in which ruling party (the National Conference had merged with the Congress at the time) workers were occasionally refused burial space in graveyards File image of Gowhar Bhat Twitter/@SuryahSG The sad fact is that although there has been a recent upsurge in pan-Islamist ideas narrow vision exclusivism on religious and other lines is not new in Kashmir Increasing political activism Gowhar’s choice of party might be relatively uncommon in a place like Kashmir But the remarkable fact is that several young people who aspire to political roles have in recent months become more willing and eager to take the plunge into one or other sort of politics One reason for this is the growing realization among sections of the population that a terrible round of violence lies ahead unless they strengthen alternative paths The success of the security forces in the field and the investigative pressure of the National Investigative Authority on aspects like terror funding may also have played some role in reorienting minds Whatever the reasons there is a discernible difference in mood and attitude among some sections of the population compared with the months after militant commander Burhan Wani was killed last year Those Kashmiris who think of themselves as Indian were on the back foot through those awful months from July last year when the state seemed to have ceded control of the ground to bands of boys who manned barricades and pelted stones Those aggressive bands of boys threatened all those who wanted to move on highways and other routes—whether these were the army or their own parents Some of those who described themselves as `nationalist’ Indians were coerced during those months to send a member of the household to the barricades or for the night patrols which the agitating boys organized The terrorised atmosphere in which many people felt trapped then has given way so much a year later that young people like Gowhar are braving the risks of entering the political arena BJP presence It is not as if BJP activism is new in Kashmir There were BJP candidates in several Valley constituencies even for the 2008 assembly elections Most of them were not taken seriously as contenders and yet they campaigned openly (Of course there was no militant activity at that stage anywhere in the Valley) In fact in the Kulgam constituency which is largely polarized between the Jamaat-e-Islami and the CPM a man who had been affiliated with the Jamaat contested on a BJP ticket He stated publicly that he hoped for backing from Jamaat backers against the CPM’s sitting candidate During the next round of assembly elections in 2014 the BJP put up candidates all over the Valley and ran a high-profile campaign Party president Amit Shah spoke often at that stage of his `mission 44’—meaning a majority in the state assembly Across religions For some Gowhar’s terrible murder revived memories of the assassination of Tika Lal Taploo outside his house in Srinagar in 1989 That murder by another generation of militants was among the first events to focus attention on the then nascent militancy in the Valley The fact that stands out though is that Taploo was known as a leader of the Pandit community Gowhar was a Muslim—as are a number of the other young Kashmiris who have recently taken the plunge to enter politics Madrid Spain: A Spanish judge overturned
