Karnataka crisis rocks Rajya Sabha House adjourned for day

first_imgNew Delhi: The Rajya Sabha Tuesday witnessed uproar over the Karnataka crisis with opposition Congress members storming the well of the House and raising slogans, leading to adjournment of proceedings for the day. The Upper House witnessed protests by members of Congress, TMC, CPI and CPIM as soon as it reconvened at 2 pm following two adjournments earlier in the day. The House was adjourned within three minutes as ruckus prevailed. Deputy Chairman Harivansh, who was chairing the proceedings, made repeated appeals to protesting members to return to their seats, observing that the House has to discuss the Union Budget 2019-20 and Congress leader P Chidambaram was slated to speak on the issue.

The Congress has been accusing the ruling BJP at the Centre of instigating a rebellion within the Congress-JD-S government in Karnataka. The year-old Congress-Janata Dal (S) coalition government in Karnataka is on the brink of collapse after a spate of resignations by MLAs. The Karnataka Assembly has 225 members, including one nominated MLA. The halfway mark in the 225-member Assembly is 113.

Within minutes of assembly of the House, Congress members stormed into the well shouting slogans that implied that democracy was being killed in reference to developments in Karnataka. TMC members too trooped into the well against privatisation of public sector units, forcing Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu to adjourn proceedings till 1200 hours. When the House re-assembled at noon to take up the Question Hour, there were almost similar scenes with slogan shouting Congress and TMC members trooping in the Well. Harivansh, who was chairing the proceedings at the time, made repeated efforts to persuade protesting members to return to their seats so that the Question Hour could be conducted. However, his appeals went unheeded and the House was adjourned till 2 pm. Before adjourning the House till 2 pm, he told protesting Congress members that the Chairman had allowed them to raise the Karnataka issue during the Zero Hour, but it was not availed. Earlier during the Zero Hour, Naidu said he has received a notice under rule 267 from Congress member B K Hariprasad, seeking suspension of the listed business to take up the Karnataka issue. “I am not allowing it,” he said, prompting Congress members to rush to the well shouting slogans. Naidu also said he has received a notice under rule 267 from Dola Singh of TMC but it cannot be allowed as the same had been raised through a Zero Hour mention on June 21, the first day of the session. TMC members trooped into the well but the issue they were raising could not be heard. On June 21, one of the issues raised during the Zero Hour was delay by the Centre in according ST status to 11 communities recommended by the West Bengal government. “As per rules, you cannot discuss the same issues twice in the same session,” Naidu said, adding the House had functioned without disruption for 13 days but now it seems members were determined to disrupt. “If you have decided to disrupt, I adjourn proceedings till 1200 hrs,” he said. Earlier, BJP leader Lokhandwala Jugalsinh Mathurji, who was elected to the Upper House from Gujarat in the by-polls last week, took oath as a member of the Rajya Sabha.last_img read more

CJI proposes happiness classes in judicial academies

first_imgNEW DELHI: Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on Wednesday said that the judicial academies and other schools across the country can also have happiness classes like Delhi government schools.Speaking at the concluding ceremony of Delhi government’s 15-day long ‘happiness utsav’ to mark the first year of the implementation of happiness curriculum in its schools, the CJI said, “As the chief justice of the country, I was thinking yesterday, if I have a happy lot of people in this country, my problem of litigation will be over. There will be no cases because everyone will be happy.” Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder”I have seriously thought about it but I’ve not shared it yet with my colleagues. But perhaps we can have something like happiness classes in our judicial academies as well… At the end of the day if we are negative and we are not happy we won’t be able to contribute for the country,” Justice Gogoi said. He said that there is a serious problem of “unhappiness” among the younger generation. “It makes the curriculum even more important altogether. The concept is brilliant. Catch them when they are young and teach them how to be happy,” Gogoi said, adding the curriculum should be taught in the schools of other states as well. The “Happiness Curriculum” launched by the Delhi government focuses on holistic education by including meditation, value education and mental exercises in the conventional education curriculum. It has been introduced for the students of Nursery to Class 8 in government schools. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchings”It was a brilliant concept to have happiness classes. We can explore the same in our judicial academies as well. I am yet to consult my colleagues, but I am sure we can introduce it across judicial academies after hearing students from the audience share their learnings,” he said. “This is very important considering India’s ranking on the Happiness Index has dropped to 140, while last year it was at 133. Similar modules have been adopted in 12 other countries,” he added.last_img read more

Montel Williams Joins KIND Financial Advisory Board As Medical Marijuana Advisor

first_imgKIND Financial, the leading financial technology solutions company in the cannabis industry, today announced that Montel Williams, noted television and radio talk show host will join the board as a key advisor on medical marijuana advocacy.“Montel Williams has become one of the most high profile medical cannabis advocates in the country and he is also active in raising money for a variety of charitable organizations relating to veterans issues and multiple sclerosis, which he was diagnosed with in 1999,” David Dinenberg, CEO of KIND Financial, said, “We are proud to have Montel on board. From the first time we spoke, it was clear that we share a similar vision that our business model holds the key to legalization – regulation, compliance and transparency. Montel has a proven track record advocating for these tenets – the same principles upon which we have built our business.”KIND Financial’s technology platform provides tools focused on cannabis tracking and compliance for cultivators, dispensaries, and regulatory agencies in the cannabis industry. These solutions manage the entire cannabis business life-cycle ensuring that transactions are safe, secure and remain in compliance with the rules, regulations, laws and guidelines governing marijuana-related businesses with the federal guidelines set forth by FinCEN, the Cole Memorandums and related laws and regulations.“The national path forward for the medical cannabis movement hinges on the ability to create a well-regulated marketplace in new states, and history has taught us that the better regulated the proposed medical cannabis program, the more appealing it is to voters and legislators, and that’s why I’m proud to partner with KIND, which is at the forefront of medical cannabis compliance,” said Williams.Dinenberg agrees because the genesis of KIND’s technologies were built upon stringent healthcare and banking compliance and regulation foundations, “For the industry to thrive, it must survive. To survive it must figure out a way to manage compliance – we’re never going to get to a Federal policy change without a great compliance record at the state level. That’s where KIND comes in. We believe our partnership with Montel Williams will lead the industry towards a solution to make medical marijuana a viable option for patients who really need it. No one has lived this and represented it better than him.”Said Williams, “We know that the vast majority of voters support making medical marijuana available to relieve the suffering of seriously ill Americans like me and so many others. What we also know is that voters want a well-regulated marketplace – for this industry to expand, to help more patients, the movement needs to keep compliance at the forefront of our minds.”For additional information visit www.Kind.Financial. Kind Financial invites the public to participate in the conversation about the current and future status of financial services in the cannabis industry.last_img read more

Cristiano Ronaldo to Sue German Magazine over Rape Accusations

Rabat – Cristiano Ronaldo is firing back at German magazine Der Spiegel. Der Spiegel has published the testimony of a 34-year-old American who accused the football star of raping her at a Las Vegas hotel in 2009. This is the first time that Kathryn Mayorga opens up publicly about her “story.” She claims that the Portuguese footballer raped her in 2009, after which he had her sign a confidentiality agreement and payed her $ 375,000. The superstar is refuting the charges, claiming to have had “consensual” intercourse with her. He appealed to a lawyer in Germany and attacked the weekly Der Spiegel for the publication of the article.Juventus striker has also reacted to the rumors on social media. Ronaldo commented on charges of raping during a live Instagram. “It’s a lie. She wants to become famous thanks to my name. These situations are part of my job,” said the football player.These accusations first surfaced a year and a half ago, but Kathryn Mayorga’s name only appeared recently. Last year, Ronaldo called the revelation “journalistic fiction”, letting the media know that the sexual relationship had been “agreed.”However, according to Kathryn Mayorga’s lawyer, they have a document challenging Cristiano Ronaldo’s version, claiming that the victim had said “no” and “stop” several times. read more

UN tribunal drops indictment against Croatian accused of war crimes

Yesterday, Judge Amin El-Mahdi issued an order to remove the indictment against Zoran Marinic following a request in August by chief Prosecutor Carla del Ponte, who said that the accused was a low-level indictee, and that “it was in the interests of the fair administration of justice and within the framework of the general policy” of the UN Tribunal that he be tried before a national court.The Prosecutor added that she did not know the whereabouts of the accused and that he was not represented by any counsel known to the Tribunal.Judge El-Mahdi also ordered that the arrest warrant be withdrawn, and compelled the Prosecutor to transmit all information related to the case to national authorities.

Iraqi weapons declaration due this weekend to be transmitted to Security Council

Ewen Buchanan, a spokesman for the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspections Commission (UNMOVIC), told UN Radio on Thursday that the Baghdad authorities have announced that the Declaration would be submitted on Saturday. “Clearly our job is to make sure that it is promptly transmitted to the Security Council here in New York, but that’s not likely to happen before Sunday evening at the earliest,” he added, anticipating that the document could run in the thousands of pages. Asked what Iraq would likely say given the country’s denials that it possesses weapons of mass destruction, Mr. Buchanan said perhaps the Declaration would provide “some sort of narrative as to what happened to the weapons programme which they did acknowledge having had in the past.” He stressed that the Security Council had mandated the Declaration “and it is for Iraq to determine what they put in that Declaration.” This constitutes “an opportunity for Iraq to try and come clean on some of the question marks of the past,” he said. Looking back over one week of inspections, Mr. Buchanan noted that the process was “off to a good start on the ground.” Although the Council had given the inspectors 45 days to resume their work, operations had commenced within 19 days – less than half the allotted time. UNMOVIC was working to bring in new inspectors as fast as possible with the aim of having 100 in place by Christmas time. “It is our intention to be able to field multiple teams simultaneously to inspections throughout Iraq,” he said, noting that more inspectors would be going in this weekend. To a question on charges by Baghdad that there may be spies among the team, Mr. Buchanan stressed that UNMOVIC staff serve only the UN. “We’re not doing the work for any individual Member States,” he stressed. “Dr. Blix has been very clear that if he were to find anyone acting inappropriately or working for governments he would dismiss that person immediately.” read more

Mandate of UN mission in DR of Congo expanded troops added

Speaking after the Council unanimously adopted a resolution on the increase, the Secretary-General said the move would “contribute to improving the Mission’s operational capabilities which are severely under-resourced at the moment.”But he also warned that “the newly approved ceiling of 16,700 in total falls well below the figure of 23,900 troops and 507 civilian police personnel that I had recommended” in the latest report on MONUC.In order to adapt the new reality to the report’s recommendations – which he pointed out “were made on different assumptions” – the Secretary-General asked officials in the UN’s peacekeeping department to revise the Mission’s concept of operations accordingly.Mr. Annan stressed his view that the military and police strength he recommended “is the minimum required to effectively meet the current challenges” in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and voiced hope that the Council would “favourably revisit the issue of MONUC’s requirements in the future.”The Secretary-General’s comments today were consistent with the position he put forward in a letter to the Council on 7 September voicing extreme concern about the volatile conditions in the DRC.In late May and early June, the brief seizure of the important eastern town of Bukavu by ethnic Tutsi, or Banyamulenge, military dissidents, led by Gen. Laurent Nkunda and Col. Jules Mutebusi, spread violence to other parts of the eastern region, especially the Kivus.Tens of thousands fled their homes during clashes in July between central government forces and dissident troops around Lake Kivu.That same month, scores of people died during fighting in Ituri Province between the Front des Nationalistes et Intégrationnistes (FNI) and the Forces Armées du Peuple Congolais (FAPC).The regional implications of these clashes were underscored in mid-August when some 160 Banyamulenge were massacred at a refugee camp in Burundi – an atrocity Mr. Annan pointed to in his letter to Council members. “The possibility of a further deterioration cannot be ruled out, given the speed with which events are unfolding,” he warned, calling for urgent reinforcements to MONUC while urging support for the long-term proposals seeking to double the overall troop strength.By its resolution today, the Council extended the Mission’s mandate through March 2005, and gave it a series of new responsibilities, including ensuring the protection of civilians “under imminent threat of violence.”The resolution also called on MONUC to inspect – without notice if necessary – aircraft cargo and other traffic in North and South Kivu and Ituri in fulfilment of the ban on arms trading in the area. It also mandated MONUC to collect and dispose of arms and materiel that is found in the DRC in violation of international sanctions. The Mission will have to observe and report on troop movements and the presence of foreign forces in military hotspots.The Council also laid out a series of tasks for MONUC to carry out in support of the DRC Government of National Unity and Transition, including contributing to an improvement in security conditions and assisting in the promotion and protection of human rights.Member States, the international community and donors were called on to support the transition process and were encouraged to provide assistance to the Government. Those with influence were particularly encouraged to apply political and economic pressure to ensure that the neighbouring countries are taking steps to cease all support to armed groups in the DRC. read more

More than elections needed to consolidate democracy Maldives President tells UN

The Maldivian President, in his address to the 67th Assembly’s General Debate, said that the road to liberal democracy is always “rocky and long” and has to be navigated by a political leadership “with unshakable commitment to the principles and values of democracy.” Nations must be allowed to resolve their problems on their own, the President added, as he reiterated his country’s commitment to creating a democratic and free society, and spoke of the transition from an authoritarian system “purely by peaceful means.” Multi-party presidential elections were held in the Maldives for the first time in 2008, ending 30 years of one-party rule.A political crisis broke out in February 2012 following the resignation of the then-President Mohammed Nasheed. He was succeeded by his former deputy, Mohammed Waheed Hassan. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for a national process based on dialogue and consensus to resolve the political impasse peacefully and to diffuse tensions.The Government set up a National Commission of Inquiry to probe the events leading to the regime change, with the Commission presenting its findings in August 2012. Mr. Ban subsequently called on the parties to respect the Constitution, create a peaceful and transparent environment conducive to dialogue and to take steps to strengthen democratic reform and institutions.Reviewing the progress made since 2008, President Waheed asked whether the lives of his country’s citizens were better. “The answer, regrettably, would be ‘not yet,”” he stated, noting that the experience of democracy in his country was “deeply divisive,” and lamenting that centuries old values of respect and tolerance had been replaced with intolerance and hatred.Going on to speak of the challenges facing the Maldives, he said that the Government currently spends more than 27 per cent of its national budget on building resilience to combat the effects of climate change. Some of the problems faced by his country include coastal erosion, ocean acidification, variability of precipitation and the threat of sea-level rise.President Waheed informed the Assembly that his country was one of the first to eradicate chlorofluorocarbons and by converting to solar or hybrid sources, the Maldives was redoubling efforts to transform the economy into a low-carbon one.As one of the smallest island economies in the world, the Maldives leaders reiterated a call for a binding agreement to reduce global carbon emissions. He called upon larger States, endowed with more resources to reduce their carbon footprint by showing political commitment and making difficult choices.In his speech, the Maldivian President also drew attention to the ongoing democratization processes in the Middle East and Africa, applauding Tunisia and Egypt for pursuing democratization processes; but expressed concern about the violence and human rights violations in Syria.President Waheed is one of scores of world leaders and other high-level officials presenting their views and comments on issues of individual national and international relevance at the Assembly’s General Debate, which ends on 1 October. read more

Up to 10 dead in Texas school shooting

(BBC) Between eight and 10 people have been killed in a shooting at a Texas high school, say police.The high school is about 40 miles south of Houston (TWITTER/ @HCSOTEXAS)Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez told reporters the majority of the dead at Santa Fe High School were students.A student was held after the attack. Police said explosive devices were found at the school, 40 miles (65km) south of Houston, and off-campus.The death toll makes this the deadliest school shooting since the one in February at Parkland, Florida.That attack left 17 dead and spawned a nationwide youth-led campaign for gun control.Santa Fe Police Chief Jeff Powell said: “There have been explosive devices found inside the high school, and in the surrounding areas adjacent to the high school.”He advised residents to be aware of any suspicious objects they find.“Do not touch any items that look out of place,” he said, warning residents to immediately call police.He added that at least six people had been transported to hospital with gunshot wounds, including a Santa Fe school police officer.Several students described hearing a fire alarm go off shortly before 08:00 local time. It is not clear how the alarm was activated.One witness told KTRK-TV the shooting happened in her art class, and that one person shot was a girl.“There was someone that walked in with a shotgun and started shooting,” the student said, “and this girl got shot in the leg.”She said that she did not get a look at the shooter, because she ran to hide.One 10th grader told networks she had an asthma attack while hiding in the woods.News helicopters filmed students emptying their backpacks in front of armed officers in a field outside the school.A bomb squad was at the scene, and several helicopter ambulances flew victims to hospital.School superintendent Dr Leigh Wall said in a statement: “We experienced an unthinkable tragedy at our high school this morning.”Federal officials with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are helping the investigation.President Donald Trump, speaking at a prison reform event at the White House, described the attack as “absolutely horrific”.“My administration is determined to do everything in our power to protect our students, secure our schools, and to keep weapons out of the hands of those who pose a threat to themselves, and to others,” he added.Two weeks ago, Mr Trump reiterated his call to arm teachers with guns during a speech in Dallas to the National Rifle Association (NRA).First Lady Melania Trump tweeted: “My heart goes out of Santa Fe and all of Texas today.”Shortly after the shooting began in the town of about 13,000 residents, a man carrying an American flag, wearing a Trump hat, and carrying a pistol on his hip approached news cameras.The man, who did not give his name, said his goal was to “get to the school. Make America great again.”Another man then told reporters “we need prayers”.“This idiot is walking down the street with a damned pistol on his side where we just had kids get shot,” he said referring to the other man.“I’m a guns rights person. I have guns. But this idiot is walking down here and saying he needs to make America great again. That’s not what America needs.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedTwo teens killed in US school shooting, attacker dead — policeDecember 7, 2017In “latest news”Texas shooting: Gunman Devin Kelley ‘had row with mother-in-law’November 6, 2017In “World”Maryland high school shooter dies after exchange with officer -sheriffMarch 20, 2018In “Crime” read more

Washington implementing new system for judging schools

first_imgParents have a new way to examine how schools are doing in Washington state.State Superintendent Chris Reykdal said the new system will help administrators, teachers and parents identify deficiencies in all schools, including those that may get among the best scores.In February, federal education authorities signed off on the state’s changes as part of transitioning from No Child Left Behind to the new guidelines under Every Student Succeeds Act.Reykdal recently barnstormed the state to tout the coming changes, which soon will allow parents to look up every test score at their children’s school and compare them to other schools in the district and the state.“Our goal here was to create a very different tool that allowed parents and the community and the media and everyone else to really dive into an individual school, really look at the data on an open public website and go beyond a single score for a school,” she said.That data became available in a searchable form Friday, said Nathan Olson, spokesman for the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction.Under the new program, called Washington School Improvement Framework, the formula for which schools get federal education dollars will continue to be based mostly on the percentage of students who receive free and reduced lunches, which is an indication of poverty.last_img read more

Sri Lanka opens consulate office in Cyprus

first_imgForeign Minister Nikos Christodoulides and his Sri Lankan counterpart Tilak Janaka Marapana said on Thursday that the two countries were opening a new chapter in their bilateral cooperation, while inaugurating Sri Lanka’s consulate office in Nicosia.“After the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1963, our relations are growing steadily,” Christodoulides said in his address at the ceremony.In their meeting on Wednesday, the two foreign ministers discussed ways of enhancing cooperation in the trade, tourism, investment and education sectors, Christodoulides added.Despite the 5,680km which separate the two countries, Christodoulides said, “we share many similar ideas and principles which guide our close cooperation in many international organisations and associations, such as the UN and the Commonwealth.”Christodoulides said that the presence of the Sri Lankan community on the island had also contributed to the strengthening of the ties between the two countries.At the beginning of the ceremony, Sri Lanka’s flag was raised outside the consular premises and the national anthems of the two countries were played.

National Company hasn’t held a public auction since late 2014 says Jayson Menke who works in real estate sales in the office"What we found starting in 2014 or so was that we were having public auctions that were not successful We wanted to look at alternatives" most notably sealed bids he saysIn a public auction would-be buyers compete against each other in an open bidding process Typically there are multiple bids each higher than last year until the final highest one is receivedWith sealed bids also known as best bid each bidder is allowed to make only one bid in writingThe company’s Grand Forks office conducted its first sealed auction in February "Since then the great majority of them (sealed bid auctions) have been successful" Menke saysIn the past year about half of the Grand Forks offices sales have been through sealed bids the other half through private treatyUnfavorable weather has hit northeast North Dakota in recent years particularly in 2016 when some areas received twice their average rainfall during the growing season That’s affected demand and competition for farmland that comes up for sale in the areaWith less competition farmers in the area "have told us they don’t like to sit across the table and bid against one another" in a public auction bolstering the case for sealed bids Menke saysAnother advantage of sealed bids is that would-be buyers don’t need to physically attend an auction which can be time-consuming he saysSealed bids can be advantageous from the seller’s viewpoint too A failed auction would let the public know what the high bid was possibly stigmatizing the property"If a sealed bid is unsuccessful it’s less public" Menke saysOther Farmers National offices nationwide including its Fargo office continue to hold public auctions

generally lead to higher or lower prices overall than public auctionsWilliam Lazarus a professor and extension economist with the University of Minnesota whose areas of study includes farm real estate agents says he’s not aware of data comparing prices under sealed bids versus auctionsHe provided links to several academic studies that compared how different types of auctions in general not

and have been more effective" Greder saysThe high-quality farmland in his area generates strong demand from potential buyers and a relatively small amount of it is coming up for sale That combination boosts the effectiveness of public auction Greder saysMenke says he and other real estate professionals give clients their best advice on what sales method to use"But at the end of the day it’s still
