Fifty per cent of school syllabus to be reduced: Rajyavardhan Rathore

first_imgNew Delhi, Aug 6 (PTI) In a bid to promote sports in the country, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore today said that a games period will be made mandatory in schools after reducing the syllabus by 50 per cent by next year. “We have come to a stage where sports is not a part of education, it is education. The ministry of education is ensuring that the syllabus in schools by 2019 is reduced by 50 per cent and there will be a sports period on a regular basis,” Rathore said. Rathore said the ministry is planning several things to make sports more relevant. “We are also ensuring that the SAI (now SI) reduces its man power by 50 per cent by 2022 so that they can cater to sports and it has a lean body and money is spent on sports. “This year we will have 20 specialised sports schools and the government of India will pump about Rs 7-10 crore each.

Champions League: Neymar inspires PSG to 2-1 win against Liverpool

first_imgParis St Germain revived their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win over Liverpool in Group C on Wednesday, leaving the English club’s hopes of reaching the last 16 hanging in the balance.PSG set out like a team determined finally to prove their credentials on the big European stage, and went in front in the 13th minute through Juan Bernat, before Neymar made it 2-0 eight minutes before halftime after a lightning PSG counter-attack.Yet with the French champions in cruise control, Angel Di Maria needlessly brought down Sadio Mane to concede a penalty, which James Milner converted in first-half stoppage time, to give Liverpool hope.The visitors could not find an equaliser, though, slipping to a third away group defeat – the first time they have lost all three group matches away from Anfield in the Champions League.The result sees PSG leapfrog last year’s finalists Liverpool, with eight points to Liverpool’s six, with Napoli top of the group on nine and everything still to play for in the final round of matches.Liverpool head into the game against Napoli at Anfield needing to win 1-0 or by two goals or more to guarantee their spot in the knockout stages, while PSG will go through with a win over Red Star Belgrade.”Now we have to use Anfield one more time,” Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp told BT Sport. “We will see what happens. 11th December (against Napoli) we have a proper final at Anfield.”Desperate to make an impression on the European stage, having not reached a Champions League semi-final since 1995, PSG were handed a pre-match boost with both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe passed fit to play.advertisementThe duo caused the Liverpool backline plenty of problems from the start, with goalkeeper Alisson forced into a smart save to deny Di Maria and Mbappe then firing straight at the Brazilian.Bernat then danced into the Liverpool box after pouncing on Virgil van Dijk’s poor clearance to break the deadlock.After Mbappe and Neymar combined down the left, the Frenchman squared for Edinson Cavani, whose effort was saved only for Neymar to convert the rebound, becoming the top-scoring Brazilian in Champions League history in the process.”The start was like we expected it to be, to be honest, very wild, very intense,” Klopp said. “The problem is when a game starts like that it is difficult to gain confidence, and we never got to 100 percent of our game.”After Milner got Liverpool back into the game, the old PSG, who have suffered plenty of Champions League disappointments against high-calibre opposition, might have let the setback get into their heads.Yet they stood firm as Liverpool pressed after the break and came closest to scoring again, when a bullet header from Marquinhos was brilliantly saved by Alisson.last_img read more

Priscilla Presley Named Humane Horsewoman Of The Year

first_imgPriscilla Presley was named 2014 Humane Horsewoman of the Year by The Humane Society of the United States at a ceremony held during the Winter Equestrian Festival at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, Florida.The award recognizes Presley’s dedication to ending the cruel practice of “soring,” which involves the use of chemicals and other devices to inflict pain on the legs and hooves of Tennessee walking horses to produce a high-stepping gait for competitions.Presley worked tirelessly to raise awareness on the issue through the media and other speaking engagements. She traveled to Washington to urge Congress to strengthen the federal Horse Protection Act and finally put a stop to this inhumane training method. Along with Elvis Presley, she owned several Tennessee walking horses and shares a deep appreciation for the breed’s graceful, natural gait.Each year, The HSUS offers the award to an individual who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to protect America’s equines.

Facebooks Area 404 Is a Melting Pot for Hardware Research

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 2 min read August 4, 2016 Facebook is consolidating some of its hardware research, currently performed around the world, into a single 22,000-square-foot lab in Palo Alto, Calif.Named Area 404 in a nod to hardware engineers who were searching for a space to collaborate with their worldwide colleagues but couldn’t find one, it will handle the majority of Facebook’s modeling, prototyping and failure analysis.Area 404 is the latest indicator that Facebook is set on a path that will take it far from its roots as a social media platform. The new space offers tools familiar to those who have worked in other fabrication facilities, like milling machines, lathes, fabric cutters and microscopes.Some of those conventional tools will be dedicated to implementing Facebook’s rather unconventional plans to bring Internet access to currently unconnected communities worldwide. Some of the development and testing for the company’s OpenCellular access points will move to Area 404, as will research to support Aquila, Facebook’s giant Internet-beaming drone.Area 404 is focused mostly on building computing hardware, some of which is designed to support software that will ultimately show up in the company’s apps. That includes developing modular sleds and shelving for the servers that power Big Sur, Facebook’s artificial intelligence research.The facility will also host teams developing new virtual reality hardware and technology, including the Surround 360 camera rig and prototypes of future Oculus VR headsets.Beyond its lathes and milling machines, Area 404 will act as a kind of nerve center for Facebook’s aspirations. By consolidating research in one place, the company that started in a Harvard dorm room is flexing its design muscle, and showing it isn’t afraid to consolidate research in its core products with out-of-left-field initiatives.

How to prevent errors while using utilities for loading data in Teradata

first_imgIn today’s tutorial we will assist you to overcome the errors that arise while loading, deleting or updating large volumes of data using Teradata Utilities. This article is an excerpt from Teradata Cookbook co-authored by Abhinav Khandelwal and Rajsekhar Bhamidipati. This book provides recipes to simplify the daily tasks performed by database administrators (DBA) along with providing efficient data warehousing solutions in Teradata database system. Resolving FastLoad error 2652 When data is being loaded via FastLoad, a table lock is placed on the target table. This means that the table is unavailable for any other operation. A lock on a table is only released when FastLoad encounters the END LOADING command, which terminates phase 2, the so-called application phase. FastLoad may get terminated in phase 1 due to any of the following reasons: Load script results in failure (error code 8 or 12) Load script is aborted by admin or some other session FastLoad fails due to bad record or file Forgetting to add end loading statement in script If so, it keeps a lock on the table, which needs to be released manually. In this recipe, we will see the steps to release FastLoad locks. Getting ready Identify the table on which FastLoad is been ended prematurely and tables are in locked state. You need to have valid credentials for the Teradata Database. Execute the dummy FastLoad script from the same user or the user which has write access to the lock table. A user requires the following privileges/rights in order to execute the FastLoad: SELECT and INSERT (CREATE and DROP or DELETE) access to the target or loading table CREATE and DROP TABLE on error tables SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE are required privileges for the user PUBLIC on the restart log table (SYSADMIN.FASTLOG). There will be a row in the FASTLOG table for each FastLoad job that has not completed in the system. How to do it… Open a notepad and create the following script: .LOGON 127.0.0.1/dbc, dbc; /* Vaild system name and credentials toyour system */.DATABASE Database_Name; /* database under which locked table is */erorfiles errortable_name, uv_tablename /* same error table name asin script */begin loading locked_table; /* table which is getting 2652 error */.END LOADING; /* to end pahse 2 and release the lock */.LOGOFF; Save it as dummy_fl.txt. Open the windows Command Prompt and execute this using the FastLoad command, as shown in the following screenshot: This dummy script with no insert statement should release the lock on the target Table. Execute Select on the locked table to see if the lock is released on the table. How it works… As FastLoad is designed to work only on empty tables, it becomes necessary that the loading of the table finishes in one go. If the load script is errored out prematurely in phase 2, without encountering the END loading command, it leaves a lock on loading the table. Fastload locks can’t be released via the HUT utility, as there are no technical lock on the table. To execute FastLoad, the following are some requirements: Log table: FastLoad puts its progress information in the fastlog table. EMPTY TABLE: FastLoad needs the table to be empty before inserting rows into that table. TWO ERROR TABLES: FastLoad requires two error tables to be created; you just need to name them, and no ddl is required. The first error table records any translation or constraint violation error, whereas the second error table captures errors related to the duplication of values for Unique Primary Indexes (UPI). After the completion of FastLoad, you can analyze these error tables as to why the records got rejected. There’s more… If this does not fix the issue, you need to drop the target table and error tables associated with it. Before proceeding with dropping tables, check with the administrator to abort any FastLoad sessions associated with this table. Resolving MLOAD error 2571 MLOAD works in five phases, unlike FastLoad, which only works in two phases. MLOAD can fail in either phase three or four. Figure shows 5 stages of MLOAD. Preliminary: Basic setup. Syntax checking, establishing session with the Teradata Database, creation of error tables (two error tables per target table), and the creation of work tables and log tables are done in this phase. DML Transaction phase: Request is parse through PE and a step plan is generated. Steps and DML are then sent to AMP and stored in appropriate work tables for each target table. Input data sent will be stored in these work tables, which will be applied to the target table later on. Acquisition phase: Unsorted data is sent to AMP in blocks of 64K. Rows are hashed by PI and sent to appropriate AMPs. Utility places locks on target tables in preparation for the application phase to apply rows in target tables. Application phase: Changes are applied to target tables and NUSI subtables. Lock on table is held in this phase. Cleanup phase: If the error code of all the steps is 0, MLOAD successfully completes and releases all the locks on the specified table. This being the case, all empty error tables, worktables, and the log table are dropped. Getting ready Identify the table which is getting affected by error 2571. Make sure no host utility is running on this table and the load job is in a failed state for this table. How to do it… Check on viewpoint for any active utility job for this table. If you find any active job, let it complete. If there is a reason that you need to release the lock, first abort all the sessions of the host utility from viewpoint. Ask your administrator to do it. Execute the following command: RELEASE MLOAD ;> If you get a Not able to release MLOAD Lock error, execute the following Command: /* Release lock in application phase */RELEASE MLOAD in apply; Once the locks are released you need to drop all the associated error tables, the log table, and work tables with it. Re-execute MLOAD after correcting the error. How it works… The Mload utility places a lock in table headers to alert other utilities that a MultiLoad is in session for this table. They include: Acquisition lock: DML allows all DDL allows DROP only Application lock: DML allows SELECT with ACCESS only DDL allows DROP only There’s more… If the release lock statement still gives an error and does not release the lock on the table, you need to use SELECT with the ACCESS lock to copy the content of the locked table to a new one and drop the locked tables. If you start receiving the error 7446 Mload table %ID cannot be released because NUSI exists, you need to drop all the NUSI on the table and use ALTER Table to nonfallback to accomplish the task. Resolving failure 7547 This error is associated with the UPDATE statement, which could be SQL based or could be in MLOAD. Various times, while updating the set of rows in a table, the update fails on Failure 7547 Target row updated by multiple source rows. This error will happen when you update the target with multiple rows from the source. This means there are duplicated values present in the source tables. Getting ready Let’s create sample volatile tables and insert values into them. After that, we will execute the UPDATE command, which will fail to result in 7547: Create a TARGET TABLE with the following DDL and insert values into it: ** TARGET TABLE**create volatile table accounts(CUST_ID,CUST_NAME,Sal)with dataprimary index(cust_id)insert values (1,’will’,2000);insert values (2,’bekky’,2800);insert values (3,’himesh’,4000); Create a SOURCE TABLE with the following DDL and insert values into it: ** SOURCE TABLE**create volatile table Hr_payhike(CUST_ID,CUST_NAME,Sal_hike) with dataprimary index(cust_id)insert values (1,’will’,2030);insert values (1,’bekky’,3800);insert values (3,’himesh’,7000); Execute the MLOAD script. Following the snippet from the MLOAD script, only update part (which will fail): /* Snippet from MLOAD update */UPDATE ACCFROM ACCOUNTS ACC , Hr_payhike SUPDSET Sal= TUPD.Sal_hikeWHEREAcc.CUST_ID = SUPD.CUST_ID;Failure: Target row updated by multiple source rows How to do it… Check for duplicate values in the source table using the following: /*Check for duplicate values in source table*/SELECT cust_id,count(*)from Hr_payhikegroup by 1 order by 2 desc The output will be generated with CUST_ID =1 and has two values which are causing errors. The reason for this is that while updating the TARGET table, the optimizer won’t be able to understand from which row it should update the TARGET row. Who’s salary will be updated Will or Bekky? To resolve the error, execute the following update query: /* Update part of MLOAD */UPDATE ACCFROM ACCOUNTS ACC ,( SELECTCUST_ID,CUST_NAME,SAL_HIKEFROMHr_payhikeQUALIFY ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY CUST_ID ORDER BYCUST_NAME,SAL_HIKE DESC)=1) SUPDSET Sal= SUPD.Sal_hikeWHEREAcc.CUST_ID = SUPD.CUST_ID; Now, the update will run without error. How it works… Failure will happen when you update the target with multiple rows from the source. If you defined a primary index column for your target, and if those columns are in an update query condition, this error will occur. To further resolve this, you can delete the duplicate from the source table itself and execute the original update without any modification. But if the source data can’t be changed, then you need to change the update statement.
