Polisario Front Attempts to Incite Chaos in Morocco

Rabat – The Polisario Front is hoping to drag Morocco into an atmosphere of chaos and crisis through urging separatist students to escalate their struggles against the Moroccan government as well as increase their mobilization across universities in the country.Along with the Human Rights card it uses against Morocco in the Western Sahara conflicts, the Polisario Front strives to use separatist students to incite chaos in Morocco.According to Hespress, during a recent assembly of the Saharawi Students Union, attended by Polisario leader, Mohamed Abdelaziz, separatist students expressed their intention to “escalate their struggles against the Moroccan government,” in order to defend what they described “their national identity’’ after the Polisario leader urged them to do so. The Saharawi Students Union expressed its loyalty to the Polisario leader, Mohamed Abdelaziz, stressing that it is moving forward to promote the Polisario’s agenda and increase its propaganda against the Moroccan Autonomy Plan.Far from it, the Saharawi Students Union goes as far as to call upon all the separatist students to join the Polisario’s “Popular Army.“The final press statement on the assembly said that the Saharawi graduate students’ call to join the Popular Army has become necessary, in the current context,” the same source noted.As for the undergraduate Saharawi students, the Polisario Front urged them to specialize in the scientific and technical sectors so that they can develop the Polisario Front’s military later after graduating.The document also urged the separatist students to take into consideration violating the ceasefire agreement with Morocco in 1991, and resume the Polisario’s “armed resistance.” read more

US factory output falls 04 per cent in April largest drop in

WASHINGTON – U.S. manufacturers cut back on production in April, as auto companies cranked out fewer cars, factories made fewer consumer goods and most other industries reduced output. The weakness suggests economic growth may be slowing.The Federal Reserve said Wednesday that factory output dropped 0.4 per cent in April, the third decline in four months.Production of autos and auto parts fell 1.3 per cent in April. The drop is likely temporary because automakers are reporting stronger sales.Still, the declines in April were broad-based. Factories produced fewer machines, electrical equipment, clothes, appliances, furniture and primary metals. Manufacturers made more computers and electronic products, among the few areas that showed gains.Factories are making fewer goods in part because of a weaker global economy, which has reduced demand for U.S. exports. And exports are likely to stay sluggish because the recession of the 17 European Union countries that use the euro has extended into its sixth quarter.“American manufacturers are continuing to struggle in the face of subdued global demand,” said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics.Overall industrial production, which also includes output at utilities and mines, dropped 0.5 per cent in April. That’s the biggest decline since August. Utility production plunged 3.7 per cent, as power output returned to more normal levels after an unusually cold March.A separate regional manufacturing report indicated that factory activity in the New York region shrank in May, signalling further weakness. The New York Federal Reserve Bank’s Empire State manufacturing survey fell to – 1.4 in May, down from 3.1 in April.Still, there are some signs that factory output could pick up later this year, particularly in the auto industry.Ford, GM, Chrysler and Nissan all reported double-digit U.S. sales increases, signalling the best April for car and truck sales in six years. Car sales have risen steadily this year after reaching a five-year high in 2012.American consumers have shown surprising resilience this year, even after an increase in Social Security taxes has lowered their take-home pay. Many economists say a better job market, cheaper gasoline and sustained gains in housing has helped offset the pinch from the tax increase.The overall economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5 per cent in the January-March quarter, buoyed by the fastest rise in consumer spending in more than two years.And Americans boosted their spending at retailers in April, from cars and clothes to electronics and appliances. That raised hopes that consumer spending during the April-June quarter got off to a good start.Most economists expect economic growth has weakened in the second quarter. But after seeing the more upbeat retail sales figures for April, some analysts raised their forecasts. Analysts at JPMorgan now predict growth will slow to a 2 per cent rate, up from their previous forecast of 1.5 per cent AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted May 15, 2013 9:36 am MDT US factory output falls 0.4 per cent in April, largest drop in 6 months, on widespread weakness read more

President Pavlopoulos welcomes Prince Charles of Wales to Athens

first_imgIn a meeting that the Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos regarded as “historic”, he and his wife Vlassia Pavlopoulou-Peltsemi received the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall at the Presidential Estate in Athens on Wednesday.In regards to the visit, according to Kathimerini, it was pointed out by Mr Pavlopoulos that the bonds of friendship between the two nations go as far back as the establishment of the Greek nation itself, noting the battle of Navarino and Lord Byron as the key points between them. President Pavlopoulos also spoke of Prince Charles’ Greek heritage through his father, Prince Phillip, and extended his hopes that there will be more visits to come in the future.Prince Charles also spoke of the deep bonds that connect the two countries and shared his gratitude for his first formal invitation to visit Athens. Finally, he too talked about his wish to have the opportunity to visit Athens again. A few days earlier, the Prince of Wales had visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Syntagma in order to lay a wreath of roses in honour of those that had fallen.Meanwhile, in an exclusive interview printed in the hard-copy edition of Kathimerini, Prince Charles praised Greece saying it is in his blood.“Apart from anything else, Greece is in my blood and I have long had a fascination for her ancient culture and history, not to mention the fact that I have been so fortunate to have visited some of Greece’s many beautiful and unique places,” he said stressing that his father was born in Corfu.“Knowing that Greece, and so many Greeks, have been going through such a very difficult time in recent years, I wanted to find a way – however small and inadequate – to help the young people of Greece achieve their full potential, whether through skills training or assisting them to set up their own enterprises,” he added.“This is something my Prince’s Trust has been doing in the United Kingdom – and now, increasingly, overseas – for the last 42 years, and so, feeling deeply for the predicament facing the Greek people, I wanted to see if the experience we have developed over all these years might be of some assistance in overcoming the challenges confronting such a very special country.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

In One Week We Have Been Given a New Logan Trailer and

first_img Fox has just released the first official trailer for the third Wolverine movie, simply titled “Logan.” Those who may not be familiar with comics could say this movie has the look and feel of The Last of Us (which it most certainly does), but folks who are big-time comic book nerds know that this upcoming adventure is based on the now classic “Old Man Logan” story.The original Old Man Logan took place in a desolate future where Earth’s super-villains decided to combine their forces to kill off every superhero. I won’t go into spoiler territory here, but after the dust has settled, only Wolverine is left and he has to deal with living in a world run by the bad guys (not to mention becoming an old man with a weakened healing factor).This trailer seems to be heading in the same direction as the comic but with some alterations. None of the main Marvel villains show up (because Fox doesn’t own the rights to them) so in their place we see some unknown evildoers. Charles Xavier is also in this, despite not being present in the comic book. Somehow he looks younger than Wolverine, but that is probably due to Patrick Stewart being immortal (the man doesn’t age!).The most surprising part of the trailer is the little girl that is traveling with Wolverine. The only thing we know about her from this trailer is that she is a mutant who is “very much” like our pal Logan. We don’t have any official confirmation, but it is possible that this young lady is none other than X-23, aka Wolverine’s female clone. We don’t know if the movie will decide to have this connection between the two characters, but it would be a nice nod to the comics if this relationship is established.Logan will be released on March 3, 2017. Like Deadpool, it will be rated R so expect a ton of violence. This is also Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Logan so don’t be surprised if our favorite Canadian Mutant meets his end. Or not, who knows. Either way, this looks like it will be one of the better X-Men films to date.

Venezuela court calls to strip Guaidos immunity

first_imgVenezuelan opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido speaks during a rally in San Bernardino neighbourhood in Caracas on 1 April. AFP File PhotoVenezuela’s Supreme Court called Monday for Juan Guaido to be stripped of his legislative immunity, tightening the noose on the opposition chief just days after authorities announced a ban on him holding public office.Guaido—recognized as Venezuela’s interim president by some 50 countries—is locked in a power struggle with president Nicolas Maduro that has drawn in neighbouring states as well as superpowers such as the US and Russia.As the political battle plays out, the country has been hit by a series of devastating blackouts that have left millions without water, prompting the government to replace the country’s energy minister and institute power rationing in a bid to address the outages.The decision by the Supreme Court—which is controlled by Maduro loyalists—to call on the ruling Constituent Assembly legislature to strip Guaido of his immunity could open the way for the opposition chief to be prosecuted.The court ruling cited Guaido’s violation of a ban on his travel outside Venezuela when he visited Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Paraguay from late February to early March.The move came after Venezuela’s auditor general’s office announced Thursday that it had stripped Guaido of the right to hold public office for 15 years, a decision he rejected as invalid.Three major blackouts hit Venezuela in March, worsening already dire living and economic conditions in the country, and prompting authorities to take steps aimed at curbing the outages.Maduro—whose government has blamed “terrorists” for alleged attacks that have damaged the country’s main hydroelectric power plant—announced that he was Igor Gavidia Leon to replace retired general Luis Motta Dominguez as energy minister.The new minister “is an electrical industry worker with 25 years of experience, an engineer who had many responsibilities,” Maduro said.Electricity rationingOn Sunday, Maduro announced 30 days of electricity rationing, after his government said it was shortening the workday and keeping schools closed due to blackouts.The measures are a stark admission by the government that there is not enough electricity to go around, and that the power crisis is here to stay.With no electricity, pumping stations can’t work, so water service is limited.Street lights and traffic lights go dark, pumps at fuel stations stand idle, and cell phone and internet service is non-existent.But people try to find water wherever they can: from springs, leaky pipes, gutters, government-provided tankers and the little that flows through the Guiare River in Caracas.“We fill up from a well near here but we don’t know if its drinkable. But we’re using it,” said Erimar Vale, who lives in the capital.Angel Velazquez said he bathed at work because he did not have water at home.Brain drainCrippled infrastructure, little investment in the power grid and poor maintenance have all contributed to the country’s electricity woes.A “brain drain” of qualified personnel has also hit the industry, with about 25,000 people in the electricity sector among the 2.7 million Venezuelans who have emigrated since 2015.Guaido has asked his supporters to protest each time there is a blackout.“This is going to continue. The situation is very serious, there will be more blackouts and rationing,” said Winton Cabas, president of the Venezuelan Association of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.Jose Aguilar, a Venezuelan consultant living in the United States, said the problems with the power grid run deep.“Over the past 20 years, the infrastructure has been abused due to a lack of maintenance and the postponing of upgrade plans,” he told AFP.Another problem was the “de-professionalization” of the sector when Chavez nationalized the power company in 2007 — a move that led to pro-government loyalists taking positions as managers and engineers.last_img read more

158 persons get back lands in Kawakhali near Siliguri

first_imgDarjeeling: The Siliguri Jalpaiguri Development Authority (SJDA) returned acquired lands to 158 persons in Kawakhali near Siliguri on Monday.”The Left Front Government had forcibly acquired lands from people in Kawakhali. With our Government coming to power in 2011, the lands were returned to 600 such persons. On Monday, we returned lands to 158 persons. The persons were chosen through lottery,” stated Sourav Chakroborty, Chairman, SJDA. Around 82.26-acre of land had been acquired in the Darjeeling district and about 208-acre in the Jalpaiguri district. The 758 persons received one-and-a-half kathas of land each.

In Some Markets Income Growth Outpaces Price Appreciation

first_img September 16, 2016 503 Views In Some Markets, Income Growth Outpaces Price Appreciation Home Price Appreciation Income Growth 2016-09-16 ScottMorgan1 in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Newscenter_img Times might still seem tough, but income growth is moving at a faster pace than its ever been, particularly in lower-income areas based on numbers from the U.S. Census 2015 American Community Survey, released this week. The news indeed came as a surprise, but it was not the only surprise in the numbers.Ralph McLaughlin, chief economist at Trulia, noted a second surprise‒‒metros with the lowest incomes had the highest income growth last year, a clear sign, he said, that regional income convergence is picking up.A look at the rate of income growth with the rise in home prices found that in several metros, income growth rate outpaced home price appreciation noticeably. Nashville, where income growth grew most in the country, saw 10.2 percent income growth in 2015, while median houses appreciated 7 percent. El Paso and Birmingham saw nearly 10 percent income growth and low home price growth. Birmingham homes appreciated 4.6 percent in 2015, whereas El Paso homes rose a mere 0.2 percent, the lowest price growth metro.The two anomalies in the 10 top income growth markets, Trulia reported, were Seattle and West palm Beach; Seattle because it was the only top-10 city considered a wealthy city, and West Palm Beach because it was the only top-10 metro where home prices grew faster than incomes (11.5 to 8.5 percent).In low-income markets in general, income growth rose about 5.5 percent as median prices rose 3 percent. This dynamic was shared with the highest income areas, where income grew 3.5 percent and median prices grew 3 percent in 2015.However, lower-middle, middle, and higher-income areas generally saw prices rise about a third more than incomes.Why are incomes growing?“It’s tough tell at this stage,” McLaughlin said. “In general, though, income growth can rise for a few different reasons.”Incomes tend to rise when the unemployment rate drops, employers raise wages to attract labor, productivity increases, and as a result of labor migration, McLaughlin said.“As firms open new locations and bring new employees with them, the multiplier effect of local spending generates more opportunity for supporting business,” he said. “Even if new employees aren’t paid any more than existing ones. While we can’t be certain which processes are dominating in individual markets, near full employment at the national level is certainly helping increase wages regionally.” Sharelast_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter I was totally amazed by

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterI was totally amazed by the unforgettable Palácio Tangará hotel, a lush oasis in the concrete jungle that is São Paulo. Suddenly, the Mercedes turns off into a 200-metre steep-slope driveway taking arrivals down, through tropical undergrowth, to what looks like a five-floor palace. Sometime in the mid-20th century Brazilian-Italian ‘Baby’ Pignatari bought this land, to create an urban idyll to lure his beloved, Princess Ira von Fürstenburg, then married to Marbella Club founder Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. He planned an Oscar Niemeyer house, which never happened, with landscaping by the architect Roberto Burle Marx. Princess Ira did marry her Baby, in Reno in 1961. She left him in 1964, and now lives in Rome.Outdoor pool at Palácio Tangará © Oetker CollectionMove forward to May 2017 when today’s palace, named for brightly coloured songbirds found here and in Argentina, was opened by its current owners, GTIS real estate investment. They already had 52 hotels in Brazil and, unknown to most guests of the 150-room hotel, the conference facilities here are another cash cow. I spoke to one local journalist and he, like may hotel customers, had no idea that underneath ‘the hotel’ are two more floors of fabulously stylish ballrooms and meeting rooms, all, thanks to the slope of the land, opening on to terraces overlooking the hotel’s tropicana, named after landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx, whose other works include laying out Copacabana and Ipanema beaches in Rio.Palácio Tangará is an oasis in São Paulo © Oetker CollectionToday’s hotel guests enter a lush lobby, going past an enticing Eden Living boutique on the way. The lobby’s floors are done by Housekeeping staff, and they are sensational, as are overhead mobiles. The lobby, like all public areas, is designed by Patricia Anastassiadis, who has brought in lots of fascinating, and different, chairs. Downstairs is a 25-metre indoor pool, with ceiling windows to let in maximum light; the gym has one wall covered with a gigantic sepia blow-up of woodland, again a sign of an oasis in this city. The spa is completely Sisley, the only such facility in town. Palácio Tangará, indeed, has lots of unique features – who else has a second pool, also 25 metres, outside in the garden area that is framed, as it were, by the arms of the C-shaped building?Flora Spa by Sisley atPalácio Tangará © Oetker CollectionAnd now the bedrooms, all decorated by Simonato Bick (William Simonato and Luis Bick). They seem to have used soothing shades of mole throughout, and that includes carpets and walls on bedroom-floor corridors. I just adored suite 417, right in the centre of the upper floor. Two pairs of French windows opened for fresh air, and had the weather been more agreeable I would have breakfasted out on the balcony, looking down to that outdoor pool. There were so many style pointers. Would I like a New York Times? A satellite copy arrived, in a covetable black leather bag. I loved the notecards and postcards, with watercolour sketches, and the stationery folder also included envelopes with turquoise printed with outline images of tangará birds.Deluxe Junior Suite at Palácio Tangará © Oetker CollectionEating choices include casual meals in the lobby, which has a corner bar; a grand piano and waiting double bass promise live music when weekend staycationers are here. You could also eat tapas in Burle, an interior bar that specialises in spirits, with over a dozen home-made bitters, and wood-matured Manhattans and Negronis as stated specials. Food could also be served in the glass-walled wine cellar. But the real magnet is Tangará Jean-Georges, a brilliant all-day concept that has four dining areas, including an interior kitchen, with an oval table that splits into four but, in entirety, seats up to 12 for interaction with chef Felipe Rodrigues (who cooked for the Swedish royals in Stockholm).Tangará Jean-Georges Restaurant © Oetker CollectionA private dining room for 12 and the main room both open to park-set terraces and now, and summer long, you can also dine out there. Inside, by 8.30pm the 60-seat space had 40 diners, for a mid-week night. This is a country club for locals, says Wadim Alvarez, who heads food (he hastened off to greet a couple in their ’40s, starting their 50th visit here with Moët before going on to red wine, and I presume they, as such valued guests, were among the fans who received a bespoke 2018 Chandon bottle to celebrate the hotel’s highly successful first year).Tangará Jean-Georges Chef’s Table © Oetker CollectionThe menu is deliberately eclectic, with sections from caviar concoctions to pizzas (I liked the way the printed pages, in a soft grey leather folder, clearly list opening hours, kids’ items are available and an optional 10% service is added. There are also four- and six-course tasting menus, obligatory for any parties of eight or more). We are brought nuggets of walnut and white sourdough breads, made here from a European yeast that originated in the 1950s. I go all-Brazil, with tuna and avocado followed by a local wagyu striploin, apparently an Angus-wagyu cross, and grilled heart of palm. Dinner dishes are avocado-coloured Heloise Galvao ceramics, and our no-vintage Guatambu Epice is deftly served in enormous Spiegelau glasses.Pool at Palácio Tangará © Oetker CollectionIn the morning, my requested New York Times, in a thick black leather pouch, was already hanging outside my door when I went down to the gym for its 6am. start. By 7am, breakfast was in full swing, with the kitchen ‘dining area’ now hosting a splendid buffet. I had masses of papaya and I also tried a pear-shaped cashew apple, a fruit from the cashew tree, Anacardium occidentale, originally native to northeastern Brazil (usually its pulp is processed into a sweet, astringent fruit drink or distilled into liquor). Yoghurts are home-made, or local Ati Latte, and jams are also Brazilian, by Queensberry. Really, I thought as I left the extraordinary super-luxury of Oetker’s Palácio Tangará, this place embodies luxury of today and, I think, tomorrow: space and nature, well-trained staff who smile and know when to keep out of the way, instant Wi-Fi, a bed that is marvellously supportive, superb Etro toiletries and a shower that is as simple as the light switches. And memorable food. I could go on and on.Go back to the enewsletterIndoor pool at Palácio Tangará © Oetker Collectionlast_img read more

Fire crews have been working to keep the fire south of County Road 177, the Mayer-Goodwin Road, and away from the homes and communities to the north.

Yesterday the fire burned up and over Brady Butte.At that time 6 hotshot crews, 10 Type II crews, 29 engines, 6 helicopter and 2 attack planes were involved, altogether 525 personnel.Vigorous winds made the firefight very difficult and on 6/27, the towns of Mayer and Poland Junction, and some of the smaller communities in the area were evacuated and as of yet there is no news when people might be able to return to their homes.Our hearts go out to our neighbors with out very best wishes.

Two in SBA court on drugs charges

first_imgA man and a woman appeared at the SBA Court in Episkopi on Wednesday charged with possession of a Class-A drug with the intent to supply.The man has now been remanded in custody in Her Majesty’s Prison in Dhekelia pending the next court date on April 18.The woman, who was released on police bail of €1,000 yesterday morning, was told to surrender her passport and must report to the police station daily until the next court hearing.The pair were arrested on April 5 after SBA Police intelligence officers secured a warrant to search a property in Trachoni village.During that search, officers revealed that approximately 16 grams of a substance believed to be crystal meth was discovered at the property, alongside “various other objects” which have led the police to believe the drugs were being prepared for distribution.Speaking shortly after Wednesday’s court case, Chief Inspector Panicos Panayi, from the SBA Police’s Akrotiri Division leading the case, explained this was an important seizure of a highly-addictive drug that is believed to have a street value of approximately €1,500.He said: “Firstly, crystal meth is a highly-addictive substance that destroys lives, so getting any amount of this drug off the street is a good result.“The distribution and consumption of drugs is a problem that we at the SBA Police are determined to stamp-out and this sends a strong message to those intent on either buying or selling, that the police are acting to catch and prosecute those that do it.”The chief inspector was also quick to point to the damage that drugs use and subsequent addiction, can have on a family unit.Those involved with this latest arrest are said to be known drug-users and Chief Inspector Panayi believes the police have a welfare role to play in combating the issue of drugs.He explained: “We take all crime very seriously but drugs in particular can rip families apart and we must make sure that we as a police force are doing everything we can to make sure that we get this stuff off the street and out of the family home.“In this case for example, there are children involved and we have to make sure that they do not become victims themselves in these situations.“We all know that drugs are a highly-addictive and they simply cannot be around young children for so many obvious reasons.“Our message as a force is very simple, if you are partaking in illegal drugs – buying, selling, or consuming – then our intelligence officers are on the lookout and if you are caught, you will be prosecuted and you will face the full force of the law.”You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

Police divers are..VIEW MOREDavid Coates—AP1 of 4Whatever spin one gives to the Karnataka election results and consequent political developments economy watchers will now debate on how Narendra Modi reads the verdict and the impact it will have on economic policy in the run-up to the 2019 elections Will he do more reforms or less Silly question really since the government had in the weeks before the election blotted its copybook by putting the brakes on one of its big reform measures – dynamic fuel pricing Public sector oil marketing companies put the daily revision of prices on hold for three weeks and promptly hiked prices the day after the election was over Let’s not kid ourselves that this was an autonomous market-driven decision in which the government had no part to play But as the government starts its fourth and final year in office it is perhaps time to assess its reforms scorecard And it doesn’t come off too badly with many big bang reforms having been done The reform measures may not be perfect they may not be generating immediate benefits but that doesn’t take away from the significance of these having been undertaken especially because many of these were difficult reforms The word `reforms’ is used loosely to denote any major economic action Demonetisation Jan Dhan Yojana Mudra for example are all dubbed as reforms; they are not Economic reform is really about removing distortions in the economy that were preventing it from achieving its true potential The jugadu style of implementing the goods and services tax (GST) – with a flawed design and implementation glitches galore that are being addressed on the move – cannot take away from it being the biggest indirect tax reform in post-independence India Yes it has been disruptive especially for micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and this will hurt growth but this short-term pain will be worth the long-term gain – the economies of scale that a national market will bring the reduced scope for evasion and the formalisation of the economy GST generally tops any listing of reforms undertaken but it needs to share that spot with the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) that came through in 2016 The economy was crying out for this reform for over two decades Especially after the resolution of the first case with Tata Steel completing its acquisition of the bankrupt Bhushan Steel on Friday and banks getting back the bulk of the loans the latter had defaulted on Like GST the IBC too is being tweaked in bits and pieces It is not yielding the desired results – the Bhushan Steel case resolution is the first in two years in other cases banks are facing the prospect of taking bigger haircuts there’s still debate about whether or not failed promoters should regain control of the companies they ran to the ground (some news reports said one of the Bhushan Steel promoters is planning to appeal against the Tata Steel acquisition the code is particularly hard on micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) But it has irrevocably changed the businessmen-state equation; it signals an end to the `sick companies sick banks but no sick promoters’ phenomenon unique to India File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi PTI Labour law reform especially amending the infamous Chapter V-B of the Industrial Disputes Act which made retrenching of workers near-impossible has been another hot potato for successive governments The Modi government also appeared to lack the guts to do this preferring instead to give presidential assent to state laws that amended it and remaining content with making compliance with existing rules easier rather than doing away with many meaningless ones But the government redeemed itself in March by extending fixed term employment to all sectors (it had first allowed this for the textiles sector in 2016) In one stroke this Chapter V-B (protects only permanent employment) has been rendered meaningless – a huge boon for companies in sectors where there are seasonal employment spikes Within the first year the Modi government earned kudos for institutionalising the auction of natural resources starting with coal blocks Nitpickers can say this was necessitated by a Supreme Court ruling and that it did nothing to end Coal India’s monopoly But the government took the next step in February this year allowing commercial mining of coal practically reversing the nationalisation of coal mines in 1973 This may not electrify the coal sector overnight but it is going to make it more attractive for investments and will scythe the import bill It’s not just coal The energy sector as a whole has seen a fair amount of reform action First came the deregulation of diesel pricing a politically sensitive measure (to be fair the UPA had set the stage for this by regular and gradual hikes in administered prices) and then the more recent dynamic pricing of petrol and diesel Fingers will be pointed at how the government tinkered with excise duty on petroleum products to influence retail prices but this (and leaning on oil companies to not raise prices) is nowhere close to the administered prices that spelt ruin for these companies for a long time Deregulation of kerosene pricing – a politically fraught move – is still pending but the government is trying to avoid confrontation by focussing on weaning poor households away from kerosene by giving them cheap cooking gas The other big reform in the sector was the replacement of the new exploration and licensing policy (which involved bidding for oil blocks on profit-share basis and led to squabbles between the private player and the government as well as allegations of corruption) with the hydrocarbon exploration and licensing policy (HELP) where bidding is on revenue share basis The Modi government’s moves on subsidy reform is still a work in progress – in the case of food and fertilizer subsidy it hasn’t quite shifted to market-based pricing and has confined itself to direct benefit transfer (DBT) to curb leakage instead Cash transfers experiments in food haven’t moved beyond three pilots and worryingly a much-needed upward revision of the retail price of food grains sold through the public distribution system was put off last year But the government certainly deserves a pat on the back for daring to take even these incremental steps And then there are several other incremental reforms – removing restrictions on foreign direct investment in a slew of sectors pushing various agriculture marketing reforms (the effectiveness is bound to be poor because this is a state subject) several initiatives to make it easier to do business (including much-needed amendments to the arbitration law) to name just three But just as the problematic details in these measures should not detract from their significance the fact that these major reforms have been achieved should not deflect attention from the many that remain to be taken The biggest is the failure to carry out banking sector reforms especially reducing government control over public sector banks The Indradhanush scheme announced with much fanfare in 2015 has not made much progress beyond bank recapitalisation A Rs 211 lakh crore recapitalisation plan has not been accompanied by governance reforms There has been no privatisation of public sector companies worth the name Sure a few strategic sales have happened but these have not been significant ones The trend of leaning on other public sector entities to help the government meet disinvestment targets started during the UPA time continues Revenue maximisation for the government and not efficiency maximisation for the economy is still the main motive of disinvestment Air India is up for sale yes but the conditions set have put off buyers and one can’t help wondering if this was deliberate There are still silly curbs on foreign investment in some sectors notably multi-brand retail and legal services pharma price controls is getting more entrenched tax terrorism is alive and kicking the tendency to meddle in particular sectors is still around Will these pending reforms get done before the 2019 elections It’s difficult to say But with whatever he has done Modi has earned a place in the reforms hall of fame (The writer is a senior journalist She tweets at @soorpanakha) saying the artist was "not informed"

comedian proved he has a knack for bringing the world’s attention to thorny complicated issues without losing his sense of humor The show’s best episodes unpacked complex subjects ranging from civil asset forfeiture to net neutrality in 15-minute satirical monologues that reverberated both online and off; in some cases Oliver’s comic tirades even inspired viewers to take real-life action With season two kicking off on Sunday here are six difficult and relatively under-reported issues that might benefit from the John Oliver treatment over the next few months: Solitary confinement John Oliver proved he could take on tricky issues in the American criminal justice system with his look at civil asset forfeiture There’s no better place to pick up on criminal justice issues than with solitary confinement The practice used in an estimated 44 states places prisoners alone in a cramped space for days weeks months or even years on end (In one recent case a prisoner spent 28 years in solitary confinement) Prisoners often end up with a slew of mental health issues including paranoia and panic attacks Still despite acknowledgement of the problems caused by solitary confinement tens of thousands remain subjected to it The challenge for Oliver’s talented team of writers would be to make this bleak trend in US correctional facilities amusing Death penalty drugs The Supreme Court announced last month that it will review Oklahomas troubled lethal injection protocol which includes a controversial sedative called midazolam thats been used in three prolonged and problematic executions In January 2014 death row inmate Dennis McGuire reportedly snored and snorted on the gurney for roughly a half-hour after being injected with it In April Clayton Lockett reportedly writhed and groaned during his execution and died about 45 minutes after the lethal injection began And in June Joseph Woods execution lasted close to two hours before he was pronounced dead So what are other states who have struggled to obtain lethal injection drugs doing Theyve turned to small private compounding pharmacies which are not under federal oversight to mix together drugs while attempting to pass secrecy laws that would keep the pharmacies identities secret READ: How the John Oliver Effect Is Having a Real-Life Impact The federal funds rate The federal funds rate is the “interest” rate that determines everything from the cost of taking out a mortgage and the size of your 401k account to the price of buying government bonds Since the Great Recession the Federal Reserve has kept that rate at historic lows in an effort to get people to take out loans start businesses and spend money But with the economy well on the road to recovery its coming closer to raising the federal funds rate That would be opposed by big businesses who fear such a move would unsettle the market and slow the economy but might be welcomed by average American savers who have their retirement funds tied up in US government debt When should the Federal Reserve increase the rates Its an opaque issue but it affects all our wallets The Clean Water Act Over 40 years ago Congress overrode President Nixon’s presidential veto to pass the Clean Water Act a law that has allowed Americans to fish and swim at thousands of lakes rivers and creeks that might otherwise have become polluted by the energy and agribusiness industries But the wording of the act has always been vague creating a legal grey area in recent years that has permitted more and more polluters to get away with spoiling American waterways Last April the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) outlined plans to define more clearly how it protects the waters of the United States to howls of outrage from a coalition of farmers and businesses that consider the new rules too complicated to follow and Republican lawmakers who suspect the federal government holds a radical environmentalist agenda The EPA will release a final definition in the spring at which point the lawsuits from states and lobby groups will begin flowing Teacher tenure You’ve probably heard the storiesor read the TIME cover storybut in many places teacher tenure laws prevent administrators from firing teachers who behave inappropriately or are flat out incompetent Efforts from reformers have changed the laws in some states often by instituting testing standards that teachers must meet to guarantee they can keep their jobs but some say testing can be an unfair metric of teacher performance No matter where your sympathies lie the issue is more complex than simply firing teachers who don’t perform And there’s a web of interests to boot including billionaires trying to reshape the system politicians bankrolled by teachers unions and of course the teachers both good and bad themselves Trans-Pacific Partnership This free trade deal between the United States and 11 partner countries along the Pacific Rim may be the biggest thing you’ve never heard about Then again it’s hard to say exactly what it is given that it’s being negotiated in secret and only a select few are privy to its terms Early rumors suggest the agreement could govern more than 40% of US imports and exports and lead to more than $75 billion in additional income in the US But at a time when Democrats and Republicans agree on very little many from both sides of the aisle in Congress are complaining that President Obama is trying to push such a dramatic deal without Congressional input or oversight Maybe John Oliver can help us figure out what’s the deal with the deal – additional reporting by Sam Frizell and Josh Sanburn Read: Unfortunately John Oliver You Are a Journalist Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecomFrigid weather isnt solely to blame for your chill Of course frosty outdoor temperatures arent warming you up either Even if youre layered in cozy sweaters and toasty corduroys your hands and feet play an outsize role in determining how warm or cool you feel explains Dr Mike Tipton a professor of human physiology at Portsmouth University in the UK Tipton studies the human bodys response to extreme environmentslike being dunked in icy water He says the temperature of your hands and feet dominate your overall sensation of thermal comfort "You can be warm but if your hands and feet are cold you will feel cold" Tipton says This is problematic for many women who tend to have colder hands than men A much-cited University of Utah study found that while the average womans core body temperature is a smidge above the average mans her hands are nearly three degrees cooler Tipton says the hormone estrogen contributes to the cold sensitivity many women experience Estrogen triggers the mechanism that shuts down blood flow to your extremities he explains For this reason research has shown women tend to feel colder during the parts of their menstrual cycle when their estrogen levels spike Your metabolism and vascular function also play major parts when it comes to your internal thermostat "Metabolism is a more complicated concept than its often portrayed" says Dr Anne Cappola an endocrinologist at the University of Pennsylvanias Perelman School of Medicine But in oversimplified terms those with a high metabolism burn more calories and enjoy increased blood flow both of which help heat you up Cappola says "The more muscle mass you have the higher your metabolism tends to be" she explains Thats another lucky break for guys whose physiological makeup naturally endows them with more metabolism-boosting

says your thyroid also plays an important role in your metabolism and heat production While the condition is not common an underactive thyroidalso known as hypothyroidismis more prevalent in women than in men and can lead to the kind of drop in metabolic activity that would explain your constant sensation of coldness There are many many more explanations for why you may feel cold all the time

which in turn could cause you to feel cold says Dr Erika Schwartz who’s written extensively about hormones and their role in how your feel So what can you do if youve caught a perpetual chill Start by moving more Schwartz advises Movement increases blood flow which will warm you up "Sitting at a desk for hours at a time would make anyone feel cold" she says A healthy diet and lifestyle are also essential to proper vascular function Smoking poor fitness or anything else linked to bad blood flow could leave you hugging your shoulders and reaching for space heaters Schwartz adds She says a doctor can check your blood for signs of thyroid issues or any other health concerns that might explain your frequent shivering You could also embrace the cold Tiptons work has shown people have a built-in ability to acclimatize to cold temperatures which is why you may feel colder in late fall and early winter than toward the end of the snowy season (This also explains why you can comfortably
