Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, will hold a rally in San Diego today for the first time since launching his 2020 campaign.The campaign stop is part of a West Coast swing by Sanders that also includes rallies in Los Angeles and San Francisco. He has also made stops in early primary and caucus states like Iowa and New Hampshire since announcing his candidacy last month.Sanders last campaigned in California in October to stump for local candidates like Rep. Mike Levin, D-Oceanside, in the lead-up to the November mid-term election. When he ran for the Democratic nomination in 2016, he held rallies in National City and Vista that each drew several thousand people.Sanders joined striking workers outside Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles Wednesday, when thousands of University of California research and technical workers picketed at facilities across the state in a one-day strike called amid contentious contract negotiations.“The University of California is one of the great university systems in the world, but it is not good enough to be a great university,” Sanders told the cheering crowd. “… It is not good enough to have a great hospital or medical center. The University of California must not be a corporate-type employer. The University of California must be a model employer.”“It must be an employer that respects its workers. It must be a employer that treats its workers with dignity and it must sit down with its union and negotiate in good faith,” Sanders said. “I want to thank you for standing up and fighting back, because the struggle that you are fighting here is a struggle that exists in every state in this country. … The working families of this country are demanding an economy that works for all of us, and that can begin right here.”Sanders, 77, is considered one of the front runners in a field for the Democratic nomination that could eventually include as many as two dozen candidates. California Sen. Kamala Harris, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and former El Paso, Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke are among the more than 15 candidates to enter the race to date.

Sarah Tew/CNET Now playing: Watch this: HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) Amazon Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. See it I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Read DJI Osmo Action preview Sarah Tew/CNET The new Smart Battery Case on a blue iPhone XR. Apple The iPhone XR has pretty great battery life, but the iPhone XS, not so much. Apple on Tuesday released smart battery cases for the iPhone XS, iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max. They’re available now for $129 (£129, AU$199).The new battery cases come in black or white, are wireless Qi charging compatible, have Lightning-out ports and, according to Apple, they’ll work with USB-PD fast charging systems, probably via Lightning to USB-C adapters. They also have that familiar battery bulge that was on previous models. (Here’s my review of the first one for the iPhone 6S.)Like Apple’s previous line of smart battery cases, they’ll charge via Lightning independently, show battery status in iOS under the “battery” widget, and discharge the case’s battery before tapping into the phone’s battery supply.Mophie’s iPhone XS and XR battery cases are expected soon, with similar features.Apple never made its own smart battery case for the iPhone X: This is the first battery case Apple’s made since the iPhone 7, and this time there’s a model for the larger XS Max and XR, too.More to come when we receive one to review.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Varalaxmi Sarathkumar.PR HandoutVaralaxmi Sarathkumar has come down heavily on the three movie reviewers, who made distasteful comments on female characters in Nerkonda Paarvai in their film review on their YouTube channel. Their insensitive views sparked outrage with a few celebs condemning their conversation in the clip.”I hope those 3 men get raped in jail..so we can say..hey we dont feel sorry for you..we jus dont feel like caring..because you asked for it by opening you big damn mouths…and calling it a review..please shut ur mouths..#ShameOnYou #insensitice #ignorant. [sic]” Varalaxmi tweeted.”Hahahhaah…they are not even worth a single tweet bcos that just means more people will watch their nonsensical so called review..my god how backward are these people..?? Are you serious..?? You dont care what happens to girls just bcos they are outgoing..?? *****#####***** [sic]” she vented her anguish on Twitter.After watching the movie in the special preview, the reviewers debated how the content is misfit to the Tamil society while rejecting the message the movie tries to convey.One of the members in the panel claims that people does not feel sympathy towards the women’s plight in Nerkonda Paarvai because they belong to upper-class of the society. “They party in pubs, drink, discuss about losing virginity which is the reason why people become disinterested in the fight for justice. It is the drawback of the film,” the reviewer says.Another member adds that going to pubs and having sex is normal in North India.”But Tamil culture is different which is why the audience will not have sympathy towards the victims in Nerkonda Paarvai,” another reviewer adds.The core theme of Ajith’s Nerkonda Paarvai is about patriarchal society and deals with the idea of consent. In fact, the reviewers’ comments expose the flawed beliefs of men towards women and how blaming the victims in sexual assault case have become a norm in the society.

.Ain O Salish Kendra (ASK), a rights body, has urged the government to investigate the attacks on the quota reformists by Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) activists and to release Rashed Khan, joint convener of Bangladesh General Students Rights Protection Council immediately.It made the demand in a statement issued on Sunday.The statement signed by ASK executive director Sheepa Hafiza said, “On Saturday morning, at least 10 leaders of the central committee of the council were injured in an attack by some BCL men on the DU campus. Police arrested Rashed in a case filed by a BCL leader which is very regrettable.”It also criticised the silence of the Dhaka University (DU) administration over the attack and its failure to control it.Terming the BCL attack on students ‘unacceptable’, the rights body asked the government to identify the attackers immediately and mete out exemplary punishment to them.
Kolkata: The state government has chalked out a detailed plan to set up trauma care centres at various hospitals in the state, to ensure quick treatment to accident victims. The government will bear a cost of around Rs 45 crore for the construction of the trauma care centres and for buying equipments.According to initial plans, eight trauma care centres would be constructed in the first phase. The locations would be on or near national and state highways and other important roads. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIt has been learnt that three trauma care centres would be located at SSKM Hospital, Bardhaman Medical College and Hospital (BMCH) and North Bengal Medical College and Hospital (NBMCH), while three others would be constructed at Kharagpur, Asansol and Islampur. The remaining two will be set up at Singur and Amtala.The critical patients would be admitted in the trauma care centres on an emergency basis. Accident victims or any trauma patient will be kept in the centres, where the patients would be given special care. These trauma care centres will have all the modern facilities to handle such patients. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedThe victims of fire incidents or those seriously injured in accidents, would be taken to the trauma care unit of the hospitals, where they would be given immediate attention. It is important to transfer these patients to a hospital equipped with trauma care facilities. This could save lives of many accident victims in the state, the senior officials of the state Health department said.The construction of the trauma care centre at BMCH has already been done. There will be 25 beds – 10 general, 10 critical care and five step down or high-dependency units (HDU). Accidents victims in the area are often brought to the city’s hospital and it takes a long time to shift a critical patient to the city. Had there been a trauma care unit at BMCH, people meeting with road accidents in the area can be provided treatment faster. The trauma care centre at NBMCH will be made operational soon.According to the Health department sources, the largest trauma care centre is coming up at the SSKM Hospital. It is expected that it can be made operational within September this year. Those coming up at BMCH, NBMCH and Singur will be of level 2 category, while the ones at Kharagpur and Islampur will be of level 3 category. A trauma care centre was inaugurated at RG Kar Medical College and Hospital, a few months ago. It may be mentioned that RG Kar Medical College and Hospital is the first medical college hospital in the state to have a separate dedicated building for trauma care. The eight-storeyed building of the trauma care unit has departments like medicine, neuro-medicine, neuro-surgery, orthopedic and anesthesiology. Patients are availing specialised health care facilities under the same roof. The new building has 150 beds.
Kolkata: Member of Parliament Dr Santanu Sen has lodged a civil defamation case of Rs 10 crore at Calcutta High Court as well as a criminal defamation case at Sealdah Court against promoter Sumantra Chowdhury, who allegedly maligned Dr Sen by giving false allegations with “ulterior motives”.Dr Sen also condemned the way he was maligned in the society. He is also the National President of the Indian Medical Association (IMA). He also raised protest against the mudslinging on a person like him, who holds high esteem in the society. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataIn a press statement Dr Sen said: “My fight is against this practice of maligning a reputed person in the society without any evidence. It is against the culture of Bengal too. A person takes years to earn respect in the society. The hard earned respect of a person is reduced by this type of allegations.” Dr Sen also pointed out that it takes years for a person to prove his/her innocence. A person who is a victim of such false allegations undergoes mental and emotional agony until he proves his innocence through a prolonged process, he stated. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe MP has also sent across a message that he will continue his fight till the end. It is evident that Dr Sen has not taken the allegations lightly and will eventually prove his innocence, as claimed by him. It may be mentioned that Chowdhury had brought some allegations against Dr Sen a few days ago, which created a furor in the city. Following the incident, Dr Sen had hinted about filing a lawsuit against the promoter.
