    Ukrainian unit digs in for Russian assault on eastern city

    Ukrainian military personnel are fortifying their positions around the eastern city of Sloviansk in expectation of a fresh Russian attempt to seize the strategic point in the fiercely fought-over Donetsk region.

While the lull provided Sloviansk's remaining residents a reprieve after regular shellings between April and July, some unit members say it could be a prelude to renewed attacks.

    Republicans pick Milwaukee to host 2024 national convention Scott Bauer

    Madison (Wisconsin), Aug 6 (AP) Republicans have unanimously chosen Milwaukee in swing state Wisconsin for the 2024 national convention, a win for the city on the shores of Lake Michigan after its hosting of the Democratic convention in 2020 was upended by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Friday’s decision in favour of Milwaukee over Nashville, announced at the Republican National Committee's summer meeting in Chicago, was anti-climactic after Nashville essentially took itself out of the running when the city council on Tuesday rejected a draft agreement for hosting the event. That came after Democratic opposition sunk that city's chances and the RNC's site selection committee picked Milwaukee last month.

    People deliberately violating liquor norms: Bihar Minister

    In wake of the hooch tragedy in Saran, Bihar Building Construction Minister Ashok Chaudhary said that people are deliberately violating norms despite liquor ban law imposed in the state. "Whenever any law is made by any government, its implementation on the ground is a challenge. The government makes laws but the people, in a bid to earn money in a short period of time, violate law. Our government is making efforts to make its liquor ban law successful on the ground but some people staying in the system do not want it to be successful," he said. "We have so many laws which were made long ago but people used to violate them. Laws against dowry, arms, child labour are effective in the country. Liquor ban law is also an act in Bihar which came into effect in April 2016, and is regularly violated by people. Keeping arms and ammunition is a criminal offence, still, people used to establish illegal manufacturing units," Chaudhary added.
