RBI confident NBFC liquidity situation will improve

first_imgThe central bank’s decision not to conduct an asset quality review of non-banking financial companies (NBFC) is driven by market concerns though there are widespread worries about a possible meltdown because of the current liquidity situation and non-performing assets (NPA). The situation of the NBFCs came into public focus after IL&FC, a leading NBFC, defaulted on some of its repayment commitments triggering panic among investors.Worries persist despite Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Shaktikanta Das recently shrugging off liquidity concerns pertaining to NBFCs and ruling out an asset quality review. Das contended that such a review could ring alarm bells and might not be well-received by the market.Speaking to a group of foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) in Hong Kong earlier in the week, Das affirmed that the RBI was prepared to step in to meet the liquidity needs of NBFCs, according to a media report. The top banking regulator said the quantum of NPAs had dipped significantly in one year and that the worst seemed to be over for the banking sector, the Business Standard website said citing an unidentified source.FPIs attending the meeting included asset managers such as Templeton, Fidelity, and Blackrock, as well as some hedge funds and distressed asset investors. The IL&FS default led to panic among mutual funds and banks, resulting in a decline in the availability of debt capital and rise of cost of debt capital for NBFCs and housing finance companies (HFCs) and generally creating a liquidity crisis in an election year.The Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is already under pressure over employment data and a farm crisis that saw three states slip out of the party’s hands in December 2018 elections. The liquidity crisis has hit the micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) which are considered the mainstay of employment generation and semiurban and rural liquidity. The government has already announced steps to improve the liquidity of MSMEs and farmers through direct benefit transfers. But a crisis of NBFCs that immensely contribute to the rural and semi-urban economy could affect the government’s attempts for returning to power in the general election 2019.”The marginal funding cost for NBFCs/HFCs from various sources have gone up 25-100 basis points. The increase in the cost of borrowing is clearly visible in the 50 bps increase in credit spread for NBFC bonds over government securities since August 2018,” a recent research note by Ambit says.After years of low profitability because of weak asset quality and growth slowdown, analysts expect the Indian banking sector to turn around in FY20. Brokers JM Financial believes the stress from corporate bad debt is subsiding and will reflect in lower slippages.last_img read more

Ostriches run fast because of springy tendons

first_imgAustralian and U.S. researchers studying the movement of ostriches have discovered the giant flightless birds can store double the elastic energy per step in their tendons than humans can. This considerably reduces the effort needed by the muscles, and enables the ostrich (and perhaps also the emu) to run twice as fast as humans while requiring only half the energy. China hatches 150 African ostriches Human and ostrich hind-limb postures during mid-stance of running: (a,b) sagittal plane; (c,d) frontal plane. Image: [i]Journal of the Royal Society Interface[/i], doi:10.1098/​rsif.2010.0466 Citation: Ostriches run fast because of ‘springy’ tendons (2010, October 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Leader of the study, Assistant Professor Jonas Rubenson of the School of Sports Science, Exercise and Health at the University of Western Australia, said the aim of the research was to find out what mechanical adaptations were made by species able to run fast and efficiently. He said that while lions and cheetahs can outrun the ostrich on short sprints, they use a great deal of energy, and other species such as ostriches, antelopes and horses, can run fast over long distances.Two hypotheses had been proposed to explain how some animals are able to run economically: the first was that they used a particularly efficient mechanical action in their limbs, and the second was the animals were able to store more elastic energy in their joints than sprinters.To test these hypotheses the researchers fitted reflective markers to the joints of five humans and five tame ostriches to enable them to carry out a detailed analysis of their gait and movements as they ran on a custom-built running track 50 meters long. They also measured the forces applied to the ground during running. They selected the ostrich rather than the lighter Australian emu because the ostrich and humans have a similar mass, and because the ostrich is the fastest bird on the land.The results demonstrated that both humans and ostriches need the almost exactly the same amount of mechanical work to swing their limbs during running, and the major difference was in the storage and release of energy by the tendons. They calculated the release of this elastic energy generated 83% more work in the ostrich than in the human, which meant the ostrich uses less metabolic energy and is less fatigued.The findings of the research, described in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, may enable engineers to design better prosthetic limbs by focusing on elastic propulsion. They could also help robot researchers to design more agile robots. The results could also provide some insight into the evolution of bipedalism.

Implementing Data Modeling techniques in Qlik Sense Tutorial

first_imgData modeling is a conceptual process, representing the associations between the data in a manner in which it caters to specific business requirements. In this process, the various data tables are linked as per the business rules to achieve business needs. This article is taken from the book Hands-On Business Intelligence with Qlik Sense by Kaushik Solanki, Pablo Labbe, Clever Anjos, and Jerry DiMaso. By the end of this book, you will be well-equipped to run successful business intelligence applications using Qlik Sense’s functionality, data modeling techniques, and visualization best practices. To follow along with the examples implemented in this article, you can download the code from the book’s GitHub repository. In this article, we will look at the basic concept of data modeling, its various types, and learn which technique is best suited for Qlik Sense dashboards. We will also learn about the methods for linking data with each other using joins and concatenation. Technical requirements For this article, we will use the app created earlier in the book, as a starting point with a loaded data model. You can find it in the book’s GitHub repository. You can also download the initial and final version of the application from the repository. After downloading the initial version of the application, perform the following steps: If you are using Qlik Sense Desktop, place the app in the Qlik\Sense\Apps folder under your Documents personal folder If you are using Qlik Sense Cloud, upload the app to your personal workspace Advantages of data modeling Data modeling helps business in many ways. Let’s look at some of the advantages of data modeling: High-speed retrieval: Data modeling helps to get the required information much faster than expected. This is because the data is interlinked between the different tables using the relationship. Provides ease of accessing data: Data modeling eases the process of giving the right access to the data to the end-users. With the simple data query language, you can get the required data easily. Helps in handling multiple relations: Various datasets have various kinds of relationship between the other data. For example, there could be one-to-one, or one-to-many, or many-to-many relationships. Data modeling helps in handling this kind of relationship easily. Stability: Data modeling provides stability to the system. Data modeling techniques There are various techniques in which data models can be built, each technique has its own advantages and disadvantages. The following are two widely-used data modeling techniques. Entity-relationship modeling The entity-relationship modeling (ER modeling) technique uses the entity and relationships to create a logical data model.  This technique is best suited for the Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) systems. An entity in this model refers to anything or object in the real world that has distinguishable characteristics. While a relationship in this model is the relationship between the two or more entities. There are three basic types of relationship that can exist: One-to-one: This relation means each value from one entity has a single relation with a value from the other entity. For example, one customer is handled by one sales representative: One-to-many: This relation means each value from one entity has multiple relations with values from other entities. For example, one sales representative handles multiple customers: Many-to-many: This relation means all values from both entities have multiple relations with each other. For example, one book can have many authors and each author can have multiple books: Dimensional modeling The dimensional modeling technique uses facts and dimensions to build the data model. This modeling technique was developed by Ralf Kimball. Unlike ER modeling, which uses normalization to build the model, this technique uses the denormalization of data to build the model. Facts, in this context, are tables that store the most granular transactional details. They mainly store the performance measurement metrics, which are the outcome of the business process. Fact tables are huge in size, because they store the transactional records. For example, let’s say that sales data is captured at a retail store. The fact table for such data would look like the following: A fact table has the following characteristics: It contains the measures, which are mostly numeric in nature It stores the foreign key, which refers to the dimension tables It stores large numbers of records Mostly, it does not contain descriptive data The dimension table stores the descriptive data, describing the who, what, which, when, how, where, and why associated with the transaction. It has the maximum number of columns, but the records are generally fewer than fact tables. Dimension tables are also referred to as companions of the fact table. They store textual, and sometimes numerical, values. For example, a PIN code is numeric in nature, but they are not the measures and thus they get stored in the dimension table. In the previous sales example that we discussed, the customer, product, time, and salesperson are the dimension tables. The following diagram shows a sample dimension table: The following are the characteristics of the dimension table: It stores descriptive data, which describes the attributes of the transaction It contains many columns and fewer records compared to the fact table It also contains numeric data, which is descriptive in nature There are two types of dimensional modeling techniques that are widely used: Star schema: This schema model has one fact table that is linked with multiple dimension tables. The name star is given because once the model is ready, it looks like a star. The advantages of the star schema model include the following: Better query performance Simple to understand The following diagram shows an example of the star schema model: Snowflake schema: This schema model is similar to the star schema, but in this model, the dimensional tables are normalized further. The advantages of the snowflake schema model include the following: It provides better referential integrity It requires less space as data is normalized The following diagram shows an example of the snowflake schema model: When it comes to data modeling in Qlik Sense, the best option is to use the star schema model for better performance. Qlik Sense works very well when the data is loaded in a denormalized form, thus the star schema is suitable for Qlik Sense development. The following diagram shows the performance impact of different data models on Qlik Sense: Now that we know what data modeling is and which technique is most appropriate for Qlik Sense data modeling, let’s look at some other fundamentals of handling data. Joining While working on data model building, we often encounter a situation where we want to have some fields added from one table into another to do some sort of calculations. In such situations, we use the option of joining those tables based on the common fields between them. Let’s understand how we can use joins between tables with a simple example. Assume you want to calculate the selling price of a product. The information you have is SalesQty in Sales Table and UnitPrice of product in Product Table. The calculation for getting the sales price is UnitPrice * SalesQty. Now, let’s see what output we get when we apply a join on these tables: Types of joins There are various kinds of joins available but let’s take a look at the various types of joins supported by Qlik Sense. Let’s consider the following tables to understand each type better: Order table: This table stores the order-related data: OrderNumber Product CustomerID OrderValue 100 Fruits 1 100 101 Fruits 2 80 102 Fruits 3 120 103 Vegetables 6 200 Customer table: This table stores the customer details, which include the CustomerID and Name: CustomerID Name 1 Alex 2 Linda 3 Sam 4 Michael 5 Sara Join/outer join When you want to get the data from both the tables you use the Join keyword. When you just use only Join between two tables, it is always a full outer join. The Outer keyword is optional. The following diagram shows the Venn diagram for the outer join: Now, let’s see how we script this joining condition in Qlik Sense: Create a new Qlik Sense application. Give it a name of your choice. Jump to Script editor, create a new tab, and rename it as Outer Join, as shown in the following screenshot. Write the script shown in the following screenshot: Once you write the script, click on Load Data to run the script and load the data. Once the data is loaded, create a new sheet and add the Table object to see the joined table data, as shown in the following screenshot: As the output of Outer Join, we got five fields, as shown in the preceding screenshot. You can also observe that the last two rows have null values for the fields, which come from the Order table, where the customers 4 and 5 are not present. Left join When you want to extract all the records from the left table and matching records from the right table, then you use the Left Join keyword to join those two tables. The following diagram shows the Venn diagram for left join: Let’s see the script for left join: In the previous application created, delete the Outer Join tab. Create a new tab and rename it as Left Join, as shown in the following screenshot. Write the script shown in the following screenshot: Once the script is written, click on Load Data to run the script and load the data. Once the script is finished, create a new sheet and add the Table object to see the joined table data, as shown in the following screenshot: Right join When you want to extract all the records from the right table and the matching records from the left table, then you use the right join keyword to join those two tables. The following diagram shows the Venn diagram for right join: Let’s see the script for right join: In the previous application created, comment the existing script. Create a new tab and rename it as Right Join, as shown in the following screenshot. Write the script, as shown in the following screenshot: Once the script is written, click on Load Data to run the script and load the data. Once the script is finished, create a new sheet and add the Table object to see the joined table data, as shown in the following screenshot: Inner join When you want to extract matching records from both the tables, you use the Inner Join keyword to join those two tables. The following diagram shows the Venn diagram for inner join: Let’s see the script for inner join: In the previous application created, comment the existing script. Create a new tab and rename it as Inner Join, as shown in the following screenshot. Write the script shown in following screenshot: Once the script is written, click on Load Data to run the script and load the data. Once the script is finished, create a new sheet and add the Table object to see the joined table data, as shown in the following screenshot: Concatenation Sometimes you come across a situation while building the data model where you may have to append one table below another. In such situations, you can use the concatenate function. Concatenating, as the name suggests, helps to add the records of one table below another. Concatenate is different from joins. Unlike joins, concatenate does not merge the matching records of both the tables in a single row. Automatic concatenation When the number of columns and their naming is same in two tables, Qlik Sense, by default, concatenates those tables without any explicit command. This is called the automatic concatenation. For example, you may get the customer information from two different sources, but with the same columns names. In such a case, automatic concatenation will be done by Qlik, as is shown in the following screenshot: You can see in the preceding screenshot that both the Source1 and Source2 tables have two columns with same names (note that names in Qlik Sense are case-sensitive). Thus, they are auto concatenated. One more thing to note here is that, in such a situation, Qlik Sense ignores the name given to the second table and stores all the data under the name given to the first table. The output table after concatenation is shown in the following screenshot: Forced concatenation There will be some cases in which you would like to concatenate two tables irrespective of the number of columns and name. In such a case, you should use the keyword Concatenate between two Load statements to concatenate those two tables. This is called the forced concatenation. For example, if you have sales and budget data at similar granularity, then you should use the Concatenate keyword to forcefully concatenate both tables, as shown in the following screenshot: The output table after loading this script will have data for common columns, one below the other. For the columns that are not same, there will be null values in those columns for the table in which they didn’t exist. This is shown in the following output: You can see in the preceding screenshot that the SalesAmount is null for the budget data, and Budget is null for the sales data. The NoConcatenate In some situations when even though the columns and their name from the two tables are the same, you may want to treat them differently and don’t want to concatenate them. So Qlik Sense provides the NoConcatenate keyword, which helps to prevent automatic concatenation. Let’s see how to write the script for NoConcatenate: You should handle the tables properly; otherwise, the output of NoConcatenate may create a synthetic table. Filtering In this section, we will learn how to filter the data while loading in Qlik Sense. As you know, there are two ways in which we can load the data in Qlik Sense: either by using the Data manager or the script editor. Let’s see how to filter data with each of these options. Filtering data using the Data manager When you load data using the Data manager, you get an option named Filters at the top-right corner of the window, as shown in the following screenshot: This filter option enables us to set the filtering condition, which loads only the data that satisfies the condition given. The filter option allows the following conditions: = > >= Using the preceding conditions, you can filter the text or numeric values of a field. For example, you can set a condition such as Date >= ’01/01/2012′ or ProductID = 80. The following screenshot shows such conditions applied in the Data load editor: Filtering data in the script editor If you are familiar with the Load statement or the SQL Select statement, it will be easy for you to filter the data while loading it. In the script editor, the best way to restrict the data is to include the Where clause at the end of the Load or Select statement; for example, Where Date >= ’01/01/2012′. When you use the Where clause with the Load statement, you can use the following conditions: = > >= When you write the Where clause with the SQL Select statement, you can use the following conditions: = > >= In Between Like Is Null Is Not Null The following screenshot shows an example of both the statements: This article walked you through various data modeling techniques. We also saw different types of joins and how we can implement them in Qlik Sense.  Then, we learned about concatenation and the scenarios in which we should use the concatenation option. We also looked at automatic concatenation, forced concatenation, and NoConcatenation. Further, we learned about the ways in which data can be filtered while loading in Qlik Sense.

Super Bowl XLIX was awarded to Glendale Ariz bac

first_img Super Bowl XLIX was awarded to Glendale, Ariz. back in October of 2011. After more than three years of preparation, it’s hard to believe that the game has come and gone. By all accounts, the Phoenix metropolitan area did a wonderful job in its hosting duties — the third time it has served in that role in the last 19 years.Now the question becomes, when will the Valley host another Super Bowl?“We’ve been saying internally — not that anyone is listening — that 2020 has a nice ring to it,” Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee Chairman David Rousseau told Doug and Wolf Tuesday as part of Newsmakers Week on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “The game is already allotted to San Francisco next year for Super Bowl 50, 51 is in Houston and then Minneapolis has 52 in 2018, so the first opportunity and open date is 2019.

The goal for the host committee in future Valley Super Bowls is to continue to improve the experience for all. But that all starts with dollar signs.“Let’s figure out a way to do it that has a predictable funding source as opposed to the fatigue that undoubtedly is waiting out there amongst the business community,” Rousseau said.

And we’re making a commitment to achieve the highest standards of cleanliness and equipment reliability in all our cabins. Our customers will really notice a step-change in their travel experience with us.”Watch Alex Cruz, British Airways’ chairman and CEO reveal the airline’s plans during a charter flight from Gatwick to Heathrow on 5 April. British Airways has announced its investment plans for customers, focusing on excellence in the premium cabins and more choice and quality for all.The investments include:£400m in Club World (long-haul business class)Introducing Club Europe on UK domestic servicesNew loungesFirst Wing direct security and lounge access at HeathrowLatest generation Wi-Fi fitted on long-haul and short-haul fleets over the next two yearsSelf-service check-in and biometric boarding gates to speed up the airport journeyAlex Cruz, British Airways’ chairman and CEO, said: “We will invest and innovate where our customers value it most, and differentiate ourselves with a unique onboard experience and service. We’re investing in Club World, focusing now on improved catering and sleep and in the future on a new seat.“We’re investing in the best Wi-Fi in the sky, new lounges and direct access to security and our lounges for our First customers, via our new First Wing at Heathrow. We’re also aligning our business cabin and service across all our flights by introducing Club Europe on domestic flights.”The airline will be investing £400m in Club World (long-haul business class) which will enhance the experience of dining and deliver an excellent night’s sleep when flying with British Airways. From June new catering will be introduced in to the Heathrow business lounges to improve food quality and extend the breakfast service to 11am. In the air from July fresh new linen, bigger pillows designed for sleep comfort, a soft mattress topper and duvet to give customers all they need for a great night’s sleep will be supplied.From September a new restaurant-style premium dining service will begin in Club World, with display trolleys allowing customers to select dishes from a choice of freshly prepared starters and desserts served on beautiful new table settings.These changes will launch on flights between London Heathrow and New York JFK, before being rolled out across the rest of the long-haul network during 2018.The airline is also developing options for a new seat in Club World with direct aisle access in 2019. Details will be released in due course.And the changes in service style will also be reflected in the Club Europe cabin on short-haul, including new crockery, cabin crew pouring wine and champagne for customers and improved menus on board, which focus more closely on the length and time of day of the flight.In other Club Europe news, the short-haul business cabin is being introduced on UK domestic flights this week with prices starting from £199 return.Cruz said: “Club World and Club Europe are vital elements of what we offer and play a big part in customer satisfaction levels. We are the only UK airline to have both short-haul and long-haul networks and we want to ensure that customers connecting across our network receive a consistent and distinctive British Airways experience.”Business and First customers will notice changes in lounges too, starting with the new complex at Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal. With sweeping views of the runway, the new First and Club lounges have 40 per cent more floorspace than the airline’s former lounge in North Terminal.An investment of $110m (£88m) is planned on lounge facilities in the US, including New York’s JFK Terminal 7, which will receive over $65m (£52m) worth of investment over the next two years. Next year Aberdeen and Rome’s lounges will be revamped, and Geneva will be expanded. Further investment is planned in San Francisco, Johannesburg, Manchester and Chicago. Heathrow’s Terminal 5 lounges will be revamped over the next few years, starting April with the flagship Concorde Room for First customers, which will have new furniture and a refreshed look and feel.In other premium news, British Airways launched its exclusive new ‘First Wing’ check-in area for First customers at Heathrow Terminal 5.

Ethiopia prepares for return of Africa Hotel Investment Forum

first_imgNewerRadisson signs with Zdrojowa for two new Poland properties OlderAvani Hotels signs two new properties in Krabi, Thailand Prominent figures from Ethiopia’s public and private sectors have spoken out publicly to welcome the return to Addis Ababa of the Africa Hotel Investment Forum.The event attracts many prominent international hotel owners, investors, financiers, management companies and their advisers.It will return to the Sheraton Hotel, Addis Ababa from September 23rd-25th.AHIF was previously held in Ethiopia’s capital city in 2014 and 2015.According to an independent study by Grant Thornton and the international tourism advisory expert, Martin Jansen van Vuuren, of Futureneer Advisors, the event is forecast to be worth millions of US dollars to Ethiopia’s economy.In 2018, AHIF facilitated around $2.8 billion of investment in the hospitality sector and between 2011 and 2018, $6.2 billion. Abebe Abebayehu, commissioner, Ethiopian Investment Commission, said: “We are glad to support this prestigious event. “AHIF attracts the highest calibre group of business leaders in the hospitality industry in Africa. “By taking part, we will be able to get a much deeper understanding of what investors need. “That is particularly important to us in the context of the government’s focus on tourism as a strategic pillar of the economy. “By encouraging more investment in hospitality projects, we will create productive employment for our young population and earn valuable hard currency.”Sheraton Hotel, Addis Ababa, will host AHIF 2019The promotion of tourism is another critical issue for many African countries. For Ethiopia, it is underlined by a report from the World Travel & Tourism Council, which states that tourism represents 61 per cent of Ethiopia’s exports and it expects the industry to expand by a whopping 48.6 per cent in 2019. A rapidly growing national airline, a new hub airport, relaxed visa regulations and the country being the political centre of Africa, by virtue of hosting the headquarters of the African Union, are drivers of these impressive numbers. Lensa Mekonnen, chief executive, Tourism Ethiopia, said: “AHIF will provide an excellent opportunity to welcome the cream of the hotel industry to Ethiopia. “Our aim is to show them our assets and thereby attract more international-standard hotel and resort brands to establish themselves close to our historical, natural and cultural sites, in addition to the capital city. “By promoting regionally balanced development, we will attract more tourists to Ethiopia and encourage them to stay longer.”last_img read more

Greek traders charging more Cyprus potatoes

first_imgSome traders in Greece dip potatoes into red mud and sell them more expensively as Cypriot produce, Agriculture Minister Costas Kadis claimed on Tuesday.The minister told the House agriculture committee that he would discuss this with his Greek counterpart Stavros Arachovitis, who will be on the island on Wednesday.“Due to the excellent quality of Cypriot potatoes and in particular those of the red soil, this product achieves high prices on the market. Especially in the Greek market, Cypriot potatoes are highly priced because of their quality,” Kadis said after the committee meeting.It has been observed, he said, that in some cases, merchants dip potatoes not produced in Cyprus into mud which contains red soil and they are then sold as Cypriot produce.He said he has already discussed this practice with the previous Greek agriculture minister but that he will bring it up again during his meeting with Arachovitis, as “cooperation between the two countries is necessary to tackle this problem.”Agricultural associations have also been invited to the meeting, he said, to tell the Greek minister their experience concerning this matter.This is a very important matter, he said, “as it affects the image of a very important agricultural product of Cyprus, such as the red soil potato.”Kadis said that some reports have already been filed.The aim, he said, is a cooperation between the two countries to clamp down on this practice.You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

VA facilities refused to provide her husband psychiatric help hours before he took his lifeEven within the VA where more than 125 million veterans were treated in 2010 in a specialty mental health program a survey last year found 70 percent of VA health care providers say they don’t have adequate staff or spaceAt the Minneapolis VA mental health hires have increased 17 percent over the past five years while the number of veterans seen by the mental health unit have risen 19 percent Its 24-bed in-patient psych ward averages using 10 beds and has not been fullInstead it tries to use outpatient and other mental health resources said Dr Michael Dieperink the hospital’s director of mental health services "We’ve never had to have a veteran who needs hospital admission have to go find a bed in the community" Dieperink said He stressed that anyone who walks in seeking help for mental health is seen the same day either at the clinic or in the emergency roomDieperink declined to discuss Uddin’s case despite a waiver from him A VA spokesman said Uddin’s case file would speak for itselfInterviews with people involved and a review of hundreds of pages of documents including Uddin’s VA medical records provided to the Star Tribune by Uddin show the consequences of a lost opportunity to interveneFor the 31-year-old global studies student at the University of Minnesota the incident stands to irreparably alter the plans he had for his life He considered going to law school and wanted to pursue a specialty in Arab languages in the military Now he faces four felony charges for robbery and theft and a discharge from the National Guard which threaten his VA health and education benefitsHearing voicesUddin who was born in St Louis Park and grew up in Minnesota and western Wisconsin joined the Wisconsin National Guard while still in high school "I wanted to be a member of a team — an elite organization"He was deployed to Iraq from 2004 to 2005 and from 2009 to 2010 when he worked maintaining communications equipment There were rocket attacks and indirect enemy fire at bases where he was deployedBut he doesn’t believe his experiences in a combat zone contributed to his problem and he has not been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder Instead in the weeks before he went to the VA for help he felt increasingly anxious from two weeks of missed classes He had just returned from an intensive eight-week language course in California and was facing a weekend of Guard drills and three weeks of make-up Guard dutyOn that August Friday Uddin said he packed a bag sure he would be admitted and sat for hours in the parking lot of the Minneapolis VA worried how seeking mental help would affect his military career He was later asked if he was feeling suicidal "No" he would tell a doctor "But I didn’t want it to get to that point"The VA’s notes on the visit describe Uddin as hearing voices suspicious of others and believing he was possibly clairvoyant He was given instruction about the onset of psychotic symptoms and stress management and was told to come to the emergency room if his symptoms got worse Doctors’ notes said he denied feeling suicidal but was anxious about upcoming Guard dutiesDoctors contacted his unit with a request that he be excused from weekend drills His commander agreed but said Uddin would be expected to show for the three weeks of makeup duty"The veteran did not want medication fearing that it would negatively impact his professional [military] standing" the VA’s notes said The visit lasted from 4 pm until 6:12 pmUddin reported to the armory in Eau Claire on Monday Still unable to sleep that night scared something was going to happen to him he retreated to one place he knew people would be in the middle of the night: Wal-Mart After an hour walking the store he sat in the parking lot before deciding he needed to go back to the VA hospital He left a note for his commanding officer and drove back to the Twin Cities That act considered absence without leave is why he is facing possible discharge he saidFrantic on a highwayUddin’s recollection of what happened next is pieced together from police reports doctors notes and traffic camera video He remembers making coffee at his apartment He would tell doctors he believed agents were coming for him because he had lied on a security application The voices told him he was going to be raped as punishment Another voice told him to runBypassing the ease of his front door he climbed out the window of his Inver Grove Heights apartment ran past his own car and headed toward the parking lot of the Inver Hills Community College He remembers getting into a car and drivingHe had actually tried to steal two cars in the parking lot that morning But one driver accelerated and Uddin kept hanging on to the car as he drove away A woman putting her books in her backseat looked up to see Uddin sitting in the driver’s seat He told her: "I had to do this"Minutes later Uddin pulled her car onto the side of Hwy 52 Video shows his next frantic two minutes as he grabs at several passing cars in the northbound lane then hops the median running in front of four oncoming cars before stepping in front of the slowing semi Uddin then jumps back into the center lane where a van swerving to try not to hit him knocks him 50 feet He broke several ribs and his right shoulderUddin remembers a voice telling him to dive in front of a car because it was his only chance of not being captured"I remember trying to just get in front of a car and when it missed me I was upset" he said "I think I was trying to kill myself"Uddin faces trial in July for the carjackings He was evaluated by a court-approved psychologist who determined that he shows signs of schizophrenia and that he should not be held legally responsible for his actions that day The psychologist Ernest Boswell also was critical of how the VA initially handled Uddin"It is somewhat perplexing to this examiner that more consideration was not given to an inpatient plan or more time devoted towards helping the defendant understand the advantages of taking anti-psychotic medication that evening" Boswell wrote in a 24-page evaluation "If Mr Uddin had been started on appropriate medication the events of 8/23/11 would likely have been attenuated if not prevented"John Baker Uddin’s attorney in the criminal case said Uddin’s situation is similar to the 2007 suicide of Iraq war veteran Jonathan Schulze which prompted criticism of the St Cloud and Minneapolis VA Schulze’s death initiated reforms in the VA’s suicide prevention programs"If you peel away the layers nothing has really changed" Baker saidA month after Uddin’s incident Dr Charles Dean a psychiatrist at the VA who saw Uddin that initial Friday wrote an addendum to the original report While Uddin "seemed a bit irritable at times" and was hearing voices the doctor said there was no signs of "conceptual disorganization" or suicidal behavior"In our interview there was no evidence that such events would transpire other than the stress he was feeling" Dean wroteUddin who has completed a VA outpatient mental health program after experiencing another episode takes responsibility for what he did that day but also believes his unit commanders in the Guard should have been more sympathetic and the VA more proactive"The military has this big thing where they say they’re trying to fight the stigma of mental health" he said "They say it takes the strength of a soldier to seek help for mental health Well I did that"Mark
