Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has assured Union Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj of action against the travel agent responsible for trafficking 39 Indians to Iraq, where they were abducted and killed. “Will personally look into the matter @SushmaSwaraj ji and ensure the most stringent action against the agents responsible for the heinous crime. Will keep you updated,” Capt. Amarinder said in a tweet on Sunday. On Friday, Ms. Swaraj had said the agent responsible for trafficking 39 Indians to Iraq was still operating his business in Punjab and sending people abroad. She had requested Capt. Amarinder to take stringent action against such illegal travel agents operating in the State. Ms. Swaraj had told Parliament in March that the 39 Indians, who were abducted by the ISIS terror outfit in Mosul in Iraq three years ago, were dead.Illegal network Addressing a national conference of the State women commissions in Delhi two days ago, Ms. Swaraj had urged them to crack down on the illegal network of agents operating across the country.Ms. Swaraj had said the commissions need to identify these illegal agents and give their names to the Chief Minister of their respective States for action.
Two close aides of Brajesh Thakur, the prime accused in the Muzaffarpur shelter home case in which the girl inmates of the home were sexually abused, were remanded in a five-day CBI custody by a court here on Wednesday. The special court hearing cases filed under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act passed the order, declining the Central Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) request for a seven-day custody of Madhu and Ashwani Kumar – who allegedly posed as a doctor – and posted the matter to November 26 for further hearing. Madhu, who was grilled by the police on Tuesday afternoon, was arrested on Wednesday morning and made to undergo medical tests at the Sadar hospital, before being produced before the court, along with Ashwani, who was arrested the previous night. Madhu, who handled many businesses of Thakur, had told reporters that she was not hiding but did not appear before the probe agency as she was never named as an accused nor was a warrant issued against her.‘Privy to no secrets’ She had also claimed that she knew nothing about the goings on at the Balika Grih (shelter home for girls), was “privy to no secrets” and refuted the media reports that she used to liaison with influential people to promote Thakur’s NGOs, newspapers and other businesses. Kumar, who was arrested from his in-laws place in Fatehpur village under the Kurhani police station in the district, did not have any medical background. He learnt how to administer injections while sitting in the clinic of his father, a doctor, at Kurhani, about 30 km from Muzaffarpur town. He was associated with Thakur’s NGO “Sewa Sankalp Aur Vikas Samiti” and allegedly used to administer injections laced with sedatives to the shelter home inmates before they were subjected to sexual abuse, sources close to Kumar said. A number of people have so far been arrested in connection with the high-profile scandal, which came to light following a social audit of Bihar shelter homes by Tata Institute of Social Sciences.
Legislative Council chairman Ramraje Naik Nimbalkar’s decision to allow party group leaders to decide the fate of controversial BJP legislator Prashant Paricharak caused a stir on Thursday. The Council was adjourned after Shiv Sena legislators marched to the well when the Chairman — without passing a ruling — announced the motion to expel Mr. Paricharak moved by the Shiv Sena was not sustainable and a decision would be taken only by party group leaders later.This led to sloganeering and shouting by Sena legislators, who called the decision an insult to the armed forces on a day the country was praising their role in the India-Pakistan tensions. The controversial BJP-backed independent legislator was suspended for one-and-a half years for his controversial remarks on the wives of Army personnel in 2017. When the period of suspension ended, it was revoked by the Council last year. Meanwhile, Shiv Sena MLC Anil Parab moved a proposal seeking expulsion of Mr. Paricharak for his controversial remarks. This proposal came up for ruling on Thursday, when Mr. Nimbalkar said that in his opinion the proposal could not be accepted until group leaders have adjudicated on it. “During the last session the decision was taken to allow group leaders to adjudicate on this matter and whether he [Paricharak] should be allowed in the house,” he said. Mr. Nimbalkar later told The Hindu that he was merely expressing his opinion as the motion was not sustainable on technical grounds. “I am bound by technicalities and not emotions. The ultimate decision will be by group leaders. I merely expressed a point of view,” he said. The Sena legislators trooped into the well and called the apparent decision an insult to the armed forces. “it is a grave insult to allow him (Paricharak) in the house when the armed forces are fighting a decisive battle,” Sena leader Diwakar Raote said. Mr. Parab later clarified that members had misread chairman’s words when he was only referring to the motion being adjudicated by the group leaders. Leader of the Opposition in the Council Dhananjay Munde alleged that the chairman was under pressure from the BJP, at a time when the country was dealing with a crisis on the border. “We must be discussing farmers and drought, instead the chairman decided to take up this motion when it was not even listed in the morning on the agenda,” he said adding it was a wrong time to take up the motion for adjudication.

The family will consist of precise and stable coreless Hall sensors. They offer a high level of flexibility as customers can individually program product parameters such as the current range, the overcurrent threshold and the output mode.The first product, XENSIV TLI4971, covers measurement ranges from ±25 A to ±120 A. It addresses industrial applications such as electric drives up to 50 kW or photovoltaic inverters. Further members of the product family to follow in 2020 will be qualified for automotive applications.The coreless open loop current sensor offers an accurate and stable current measurement – provided as an analog output voltage. Based on Infineon’s market-proven temperature and stress compensation the sensitivity error is as low as 2 percent at room temperature. It can be reduced below 2 percent with a single point in-system calibration. Furthermore, differential measurement with two Hall cells ensures high accuracy even in a noisy environment with cross-talk from adjacent current lines or magnetic stray fields.The TLI4971 has two output pins for fast overcurrent signals. Customers can program the threshold levels of the overcurrent signals and thus adopt them to system requirements without the need of further external components. The signals can be used for pre-warning and system shut-down. In addition, the device also provides a signal in case of an over- or under-voltage condition for the supply voltage.Due to the coreless concept, the TLI4971 fits into an 8x8x1 mm leadless QFN type package (TISON-8). The layout of the current rail provides best in class thermal performance for currents up to 120 A, at no extra cost. The device is intended for use in high voltage application and incorporates galvanic isolation up to 1.1 kV (maximum repetitive isolation voltage V IORM).Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components
Tokyo: Olympic silver-medallist P V Sindhu crashed out of the Japan Open badminton tournament after a second successive defeat to local favourite Akane Yamaguchi while B Sai Praneeth continued his good form to advance to the semifinals here on Friday. Sindhu lost to Yamaguchi 18-21 15-21 in a 50-minute women’s singles quarterfinal match. This was Sindhu’s second defeat at the hands of Yamaguchi, who had beaten the Indian in the final of the Indonesian Open last week.

Sindhu won two consecutive points to narrow the gap to 18-20 but could not stop her opponent from bagging the next point and the first game. In the second game, both were locked 6-6 initially but from there on, it was Yamaguchi all the way as she raced to 13-7 and then to 16-10. Sindhu recovered a bit by winning two consecutive points but in no time, the Japanese had five match points and she wrapped up the tie without much hassle. Sai Praneeth, in contrast, hardly broke a sweat as he just took 36 minutes to clinch up the match.
ArcelorMittal not alone in pressure to sell stakes in iron assets: analysts by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 19, 2012 4:33 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – Steelmaker ArcelorMittal is reportedly looking to sell a minority ownership stake in its Quebec iron ore assets amid low prices and weak Chinese demand, an environment that analysts say will prompt other players large and small to consider similar moves.“I think conditions are challenging and I would suspect that we could see more of these types of situations where maybe there’s some partial sales of ownership,” says Anthony Rizzuto, a New York analyst for Dahlman Rose.Iron ore prices have been on a roller coaster ride, falling sharply from nearly US$200 per ton early last year to about US$87 in September, only to increase to about US$115 on Friday.Companies that are mostly likely considering their options are feeling the strain of higher costs which has removed some of their financial flexibility over the last six to 12 months. Smaller companies have been “in the crosshairs” because they have a harder time accessing capital to finance development projects.“Given a lot of uncertainty in the global macro landscape with regard to China and Europe and the United States, I think that companies are just being a little bit more careful,” he said pointing to many iron ore producers deciding to slow down their development projects.ArcelorMittal has a portfolio of more than 20 mines in operation and development.It declined to comment Friday on published reports saying that it is exploring parting with perhaps a 30 per cent stake in its Mont Wright mine, acquired as part of its 2006 takeover of Dofasco.The move could generate an estimated $2 billion to $3 billion that would help reduce the company’s US$22 billion debt as it tries to ward off further credit ratings downgrades and restore its investment grade rating with Standard & Poor’s.Industry analysts say potential buyers could range from private equity investors to Asian steelmakers.They say attracting partners could also help to fund ArcelorMittal’s (NYSE:MT) plans announced in May to spend $2.1 billion to expand annual production to 24 million tons from 14 million tons by 2013 at the facility near Labrador.Rizzuto said steelmakers in Japan, China, South Korea and India could be interested because they are looking to “gain a level of backward integration into raw materials.”Although costs to ship ore from Canada to their plants is higher than from Australia, he said the rates aren’t “egregious” at this point.“I wouldn’t rule out an investment opportunity by other possible buyers such as perhaps private equity groups, but certainty I think it would be much more viewed to be strategic in nature for someone looking to gain a better stronghold in raw material positioning.”New York-based analyst Charles Bradford of Bradford Research said some may view having an internal supply of ore as a hedge to global spot prices, but notes there remains a large cost advantage from buying ore from Australia.“If I were the Chinese I wouldn’do it because why incur political hassles for iron ore when maybe you’re more interested in getting oil,” he said.Bradford also expects to see a lot of deals in the iron ore sector in the months ahead because of rising costs, strong currencies in Canada and Australia, low ore prices and waning Chinese demand.“There’s a lot of bloom off the rose, if you will, and some of the smaller iron ore mining companies are having trouble getting cash these days,” he said in an interview.“I think we’re going to have a lot of scrap steel deals because some of the scrap dealers are really hurting and I think some of the smaller mining companies are having problems now that prices are down a lot.”ArcelorMittal has been selling some non-core assets to reduce its debt and offset the impact of declining steel demand in their core market in Europe.Morningstar analyst Bridget Freas said she’s a bit surprised by its apparent interest in selling a minority stake in the Quebec iron ore assets because it’s not something the company has previously discussed.But she said it’s not a reflection on the quality of the Quebec assets or Arcelor’s commitment to them. Freas said the primary goal is to reduce debt and restore its investment grade credit from S&P, which announced a downgrade in August.“I think that is the motivation here because these are assets that are relatively low-cost and they definitely have the use for the iron ore coming out of there,” she said from Chicago.
Officials: Mexico could leave NAFTA if talks unsatisfactory MEXICO CITY – Mexico could leave the North American Free Trade Agreement if talks on re-negotiating it are unsatisfactory, officials said Tuesday ahead of scheduled meetings in Washington with the Trump administration.Economy Secretary Ildefonso Guajardo suggested in comments to the Televisa network that Mexico would be in a weak negotiating position unless it makes clear it won’t accept just anything in order to preserve the three-nation trade pact.Guajardo said “it would be impossible to sell something here at home unless it has clear benefits for Mexico.”“If we are going to go for something that is less than what we have, it makes no sense to stay,” Guajardo said.“We are not going to accept just any negotiation,” Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray said later, after meeting with the Senate political co-ordination committee. “There always exists the possibility of abandoning the treaty and governing commerce between Mexico and the United States based on the rules of the World Trade Organization.”“That will not be our initial proposal … but naturally it is an option,” he added.Guajardo and Videgary are both headed to the United States for talks Wednesday and Thursday.U.S. President Donald Trump has pledged to renegotiate the pact between the U.S., Mexico and Canada and slap tariffs on imports.While Mexico runs a trade surplus with the United States, many sectors in the country also want greater restrictions on U.S. imports, particularly farm products that many say have helped impoverish subsistence-level Mexican farmers.Guajardo reiterated Mexico’s insistence that it will not pay for a border wall that Trump has promised to build and said it would not accept any tax or restrictions on the money sent home by Mexican migrants.He also said that “in the case that there are deportations (of Mexican migrants), as there have been, they have to be orderly and clearly defined.”Trump suggested during his campaign that he would step up deportations of migrants living illegally in the United States.Remittances to Mexico amount to about $25 billion annually and have become a major source of foreign revenue for the country. Trump has suggested that the U.S. might retain some of that money to help pay for a wall between the countries.Trump spoke Monday of upcoming meetings scheduled with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, saying, “We’re going to start some negotiations having to do with NAFTA.”Pena Nieto said the same day that he is ready to negotiate at a Jan. 31 meeting with Trump, and sought to chart a middle course: “Neither confrontation nor submission. Dialogue is the solution.” Mexico’s Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray, second left, meets with senators in preparation for a trip to the U.S., where he will participate in talks with members of President Donald Trump’s government, in Mexico City, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017.

Here’s how CEO David Solomon is shaking up the bank’s most elite ranks and reshaping the Wall Street giant. (GS) Share81 Tweet Email6 How and why three guys in their 20s launched a canned water brand CanO Water has also started shipping to China and the Czech Republic. Experts say the Saudi oil crisis could send oil prices to $150 a barrel if the Iran-US conflict escalates and worsens the global downturn IT’S WELL KNOWN that plastic isn’t good for the environment or for your health.Now, London-based startup CanO Water believes it has found the solution — and celebrities like David Gandy and Ellie Goulding are on board.The company, founded by three friends — Ariel Booker, Perry Alexander Fielding, and Josh White, all under the age of 25 — is selling tall cans of water with resealable lids for 99p (€1.16).The sleek-looking cans, filled with water from a spring in Austria, are already stocked in 320 locations, including Selfridges, Whole Foods, and Fenwick, as well as a number of gyms, hotels, schools, and universities.CanO Water has also started shipping to China and the Czech Republic, while it is also pitching to supermarkets and corner shops in the UK.The idea came about when Booker, who was previously a headhunter for banks and hedge funds working in the City, took a trip to Thailand.“I canoed to this island and the sea facing side of it was devastated — covered in plastic bottles, washed up nets, and rubbish,” he said. “It was a real eye-opening moment for me.” According to The Telegraph, at least eight million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year. Source: CanO WaterAccording to the World Economic Forum, at least eight million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year. Its 2016 report warned that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050 unless major action is taken.Along with friends Fielding and White, Booker came up with the idea for a canned water product when he returned from his trip to Thailand in 2015. Aluminium is the most recyclable material on the planet, according to the company.“A couple of days ago we saw a statistic about the top 10 things that are found on beaches, and cans weren’t in there,” Booker said, adding that most people grow up with the understanding that cans should be recycled.“Aluminium doesn’t lose any of its quality when you recycle it,” White said. “75% of all aluminium we use today was first mined back in the 1800s. It’s infinitely recyclable.”You might hear plastic is recyclable, but that doesn’t mean a bottle is going to be another bottle. When plastic is recycled it gets downgraded each time…eventually it cannot be recycled anymore.There are also fewer health hazards involved with drinking water from an aluminium can than from a plastic water bottle, he said.“When a plastic bottle is left in the car in direct sunlight, chemicals can start seeping into the water and can cause carcinogenic illnesses,” Fielding said. “It’s not 100% safe. The aluminium can is. It’s sealed from light and air.”The cost of recycling plastic is also incredibly expensive, according to the company. “It actually costs more to recycle it [than to throw it away], which is the main problem,” White said. “It ends up getting dumped because nobody wants to take the cost of recycling it.” Josh White, Perry Alexander Fielding, and Ariel Booker are the founders of CanO Water. Source: CanO WaterThe trio were still working full-time jobs when they started the company. While Booker was working in the city, White was working in events, marketing, and sales, and Fielding had a job as a graphic designer with a background in fashion.“None of us had a clue about this industry,” Fielding said. “We just had so much belief in the product and the purpose it serves, so we thought, do or die. We quit our jobs and put everything on the line.”Their first interested retailer was Selfridges. Selfridges was the first major retailer to sell CanO Water. Source: CanO Water“Selfridges were planning to get rid of their single-use plastic water bottles. We got a sizeable order that gave us credibility to think: ‘We’ve got something here,’” White said.Private investment followed, according to Fielding. The three founders each invested £3,000 up front, but CanO Water would not reveal the identity of its other backers or how much money has been ploughed into the business.“It all happened really quickly from there. It took us six to seven months from the initial idea to the point where we sat with our investors, then it was a matter of weeks until we were in an office running a company.”They also partnered with London Fashion Week to “test the market” in a space where they could also reach celebrities. It was there that they caught the attention of David Gandy.“He’s not an official ambassador, but he’s posted about us on social media,” Booker said. “Josh and I had coffee with him a few weeks ago.” David Gandy Source: CanO WaterThe company now provide the water for Gandy’s salon, which he opened in South Kensington with Larry King.“David Gandy is someone who actually cares about what we’re doing,” White said. “He’s a very down to earth guy who really cares about the whole problem.”The company has also received attention from singer Ellie Goulding and McFly’s Dougie Poynter, while Booker recently went to Buckingham Palace to drop samples off for Prince Andrew. Rapper Tinie Tempah went one step further.“We were introduced to him and the first thing he said was, ‘do you need any investment?’” Booker said. “We were like, ‘thankfully, we’re actually alright.’ It was another mind blowing moment.”The trio have since been approached by a number of celebrities and brands looking to endorse the company in return for a promotion fee, but refuse to spend big on getting names involved. McFly’s Dougie Poynter has been spotted with a CanO Water. Source: CanO WaterWe could have spent a couple of million pounds last year if we would have accepted every offer that came our way,” Booker said. “I spoke to Formula E, for example — they wanted £150,000 from us.”“People like Voss, Evian, and Smartwater are happy to throw £20-30,000 at an event to be there,” he added. “That’s one of the frustrating things — unless it’s the right opportunity with the right people, you’ll just pay money and get thrown to the wayside.”Even getting charities on board has been a challenge.“You would think that charities would want to work with you for free because you’re promoting the message… but a lot of them chuck crazy figures at us and it’s a bit disheartening,” White said.But the company is placing some bets, including in Hollywood. “We’re sponsoring the Vanity Fair Oscars Party, which is a massive opportunity for us,” Booker said.Why refillable bottles are ‘not the solution’Still, there are those who argue that refillable bottles are the way forward, suggesting companies should do away with selling water altogether. But CanO Water believe this is an “unrealistic scenario.”“Refillable is a solution, but it’s not a long-term solution,” Booker said.“There’s always going to be a need for it [buying a bottle of water, but we’re doing our bit,” White added. ‘We’re trying to create an alternative so people can have the choice.” Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article CITI: The Saudi oil-field attacks show investors have been ‘persistently mispricing’ oil by ignoring a ‘highly vulnerable’ infrastructure — and now all bets are off 48 Comments By Business Insider 36,878 Views Fielding added that the recent shift towards healthier eating among the younger generation has made their job easier.“It’s important for us to target the younger generations because we are the ones who are facing this problem,” he said. “The last generation was smoking, drinking energy drinks, and eating fast food, but it’s all changing now. Everyone’s vegan, people don’t smoke, and everyone wants to be a part of something good.”“We’re in a generation where a small David can actually compete against a Goliath,” White added.- Alison MillingtonRead: Irish Water issued a small business a bill of over €200,000 for 3 months > Short URL I ate the cheapest cheeseburgers from McDonald’s, Wendy’s, and Burger King.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The precise date of the return of the troika to Athens remains unknown, with Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras stating that the representatives of the country’s creditors will be arriving in the coming days.Speaking after the meeting that he had with the Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos – that was called for the government’s coordination ahead of the troika visit – Stournaras said that the heads of the creditors’ mission will arrive in the next few days, refusing to give a specific date.Asked on whether there could be an agreement by the Eurogroup meeting of January 27, the minister said that this will be known after the feedback on the latest data that Athens has forwarded to its creditors. He added that the government sent on Friday all the data concerning the bridging of the fiscal gap of 2014, estimated at 1.2 billion euros.Finance Ministry sources said that the target date for an agreement with the troika is in mid-February, so that Greece collects the tranche of 4.9 billion euros by the end of next month.Source: Kathimerini

The Community Foundation for Southwest Washington has changed the way it does business in order to get more money to more nonprofit agencies across Southwest Washington.“We used to have two funds that were geographically based,” said spokesman Maury Harris. There was a Cowlitz Community Fund and a separate Community Giving Fund for Clark and Skamania counties, he said. But now, the Community Foundation has instead decided to focus on program areas and needs instead of county boundaries.“We’ll have one program that covers the entirety of Southwest Washington,” Harris said, and any nonprofit or jurisdiction in the three-county area can apply based on what it’s doing and why that’s important, instead of where it’s located.Within that overarching program, there are new and different sorts of grants to apply for, Harris said. These include: • Focus grants, aimed at “breaking the cycle” of intergenerational poverty, which has been a main Community Foundation mission since last year. “The intent is that you organization thinks broadly and creatively” about the problem, according to the guidelines. These are big grants, averaging $25,000, and can go to operating, program or capital needs. The large majority — up to 80 percent — of the Foundation’s discretionary funds will go to this area.• Enrichment grants, aimed at organizations that don’t work on intergenerational poverty. Averaging $10,000 to $25,000.• Catalyst grants, no more than $5,000, aimed at smaller nonprofits and new programs.• Capacity-building grants, no more than $5,000, aimed at providing professional services to help organizations grow and be more effective.While the Community Foundation used to be more proactive with its “discretionary” dollars, sometimes reaching out to worthy organizations with grants they hadn’t applied for, more of that money will now be subject to the competitive application process, Harris said. That process should be easier now that it’s gone online, he said.
Downtown Juneau. (Creative Commons photo by Lena LeRay)Does this list sound familiar?Enhance Essential InfrastructureBuild the Senior EconomyAttract and Prepare the Next Generation WorkforceRecognize and Expand Juneau’s Position as a Research CenterBuild on Our StrengthsProtect and Enhance Juneau’s Role as Capital CityRevitalize DowntownPromote Housing Affordability and AvailabilityThose are the eight broad initiatives discussed in the draft Juneau Economic Plan, developed by the McDowell Group and Sheinberg Associates for the Juneau Assembly. The plan is intended to guide the capital city’s financial future for the next decade. Most of the initiatives and specific goals discussed in the plan have been city priorities for years.Download Audio“We are in pretty good shape as community economically,” says Jim Calvin with the McDowell Group.“(We have) relatively high per capita and household incomes, and strong visitor industry, strong mining industry. We have a lot of great assets to build on,” Calvin says. “So I think we’re coming at this from a position of strength as a community, which is certainly better than venturing into economic development when you’re in recession or otherwise struggling.”Each initiative discussed in the plan includes specific goals or objectives for city officials to work on. Some of those are long-discussed city priorities as well: A second bridge to Douglas Island, expanding the availability of childcare and increasing the number of starter homes to name a few.Calvin says these issues have long been barriers to economic growth in Juneau.“Housing is a case in point,” he says. “It’s really a fundamental, underlying foundation for Juneau’s economy, and we at the moment have a housing market that’s acting as a constraint on economic development.”The draft economic plan was released Wednesday on the web. Calvin will present details to the Juneau Assembly on Monday.The specifics shouldn’t come as a shock to the Assembly members, who’ve been receiving periodic updates on the project for almost a year. Mayor Merrill Sanford says the next step is to adopt the plan and implement its recommendations.“There’s a lot of good goals and a lot of good objectives,” Sanford says. “We’re going to have to prioritize them and figure out which ones we need to do first.”Sanford thinks the $100,000 the city spent on the plan was worth it.“It just puts everything into perspective and says, ‘Assembly members, here are the things, some of the things that you’ve been working on diligently, trying to get accomplished.’ It backs those up and supports them. And then it’s given us a couple of other avenues to go down to get to an end result,” Sanford says.The mayor says the Assembly hopes to adopt the plan by the end of February.

Axis Bank is the latest lender to announce a cut in base rate following a higher-than-expected lending rate cut by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Tuesday.Axis Bank, the country’s third largest private sector lender, has reduced its benchmark lending rate by 35bps to 9.5%.Soon after the central bank’s rate cut decision, many banks like State Bank of India (SBI), Bank of India and Andhra Bank have announced a reduction in their base rate.While the country’s largest lender, SBI, slashed its lending rate by 40bps, Andhra Bank reduced its base rate by 25bps.The RBI surprised the markets by cutting the repo rate by 50bps (basis points) on Tuesday. Markets had expected the central bank to reduce the rate by 25bps.With the latest cut, the RBI has slashed the repo rate by 125bps to 6.75% so far this year. The central bank, however, kept the cash reserve ratio (CRR) unchanged at 4%.However, transmission of RBI rate cuts by banks to end users did not keep pace, as lenders remained sceptical about credit uptake even after large base rate cuts.Prior to RBI’s September meeting, the banks had cut the base rate by just 30 bps on an average compared to 75bps cut in the central bank’s repo rate, Business Standard reported.Bank credit growth, a major indicator of economic growth, slowed to a two-decade low in the fiscal year ending March 2015. In 2014-15, credit growth was up 9.52%, down from an increase of 13.83% in 2013-14.

asylum system that works it will need to be built to last The surge in migrants over the past three years is not a trend analysts say but a preview of what is to come as regional conflicts evolve and climate change starts driving people from the Middle East and northern Africa The International Organization for Migration warns that climate change will cause a “substantial rise in the scale of migration and displacement” First Europe must examine its standards for what constitutes a refugee Right now Syrians are widely considered to be refugees and are accorded some degree of protection But those fleeing Afghanistan a country that has been at war for most of the past 37 years are increasingly considered to be economic migrants and Germany is already sending some back The urgency of the 2015 crisis has blurred the lines between migrant and refugee says Krastev the political scientist As the nature of conflict changes Europe may have to rethink its definitions and response “We are living in a world in which potentially there are hundreds of millions of people who could defend the fact that they are refugees–from war yes but also from sexual violence from climate change from anti-homosexual persecution from religious crackdowns” he says “How are we going to treat the first climate-change refugees that show up in Europe As refugees As labor migrants” It must also think long-term Asylum is considered a temporary refuge from danger even though instability in many regions of the world can last for decades Yet many countries are moving in the opposite direction When refugees from Syria first started arriving in Sweden and Germany both countries offered full refugee status which includes the right to permanent residency and a path to citizenship Now because of political pressures Germany offers only so-called subsidiary protection to Syrian refugees–which lasts up to three years and denies many the right to bring over close family members This may become even less liberal as Merkel seeks to build a coalition between political parties that differ on refugee integration Even members of her own party have suggested that some Syrian refugees might be able to return home in 2018 citing a pending peace deal negotiated by Russia and Iran Altallaa and Alarsan who were relocated to Germany say they intend to return home as soon as the war ends But that statement belies the realities of a shattered country that will take years to rebuild even under the best circumstances If European governments want to reverse the flow of refugees they will have to make it easier for them to go home And one of the best ways to do that is to offer them long-term residency in the country of asylum says migration expert Long It may seem paradoxical but her research shows that refugees are much more willing to risk returning home to rebuild when they know they have a fallback if war breaks out again “Giving a refugee permanent status somewhere else actually makes them far more likely to return home in the first months and years of a peace process because they know they have an exit route” she says “They won’t have to get back on a smuggler’s boat if things go wrong” Even as EU leaders struggle to define a comprehensive policy the crisis continues to cast a shadow on the continent Populist politicians across the board are calling for a fresh crackdown on migration Hungary’s Orban inspired by Australia’s draconian policy wants to withhold asylum from any migrant caught illegally entering Europe This vision of Fortress Europe is gaining currency and if far-right parties perform well in Italy’s elections next year it could spread there too This can be effective to judge by the declining numbers of arrivals But at what cost At least some of the reduction is attributable to a dubious EU deal with Libyan mercenaries to prevent would-be migrants from departing the North African coast on smugglers’ boats Instead they end up in detention centers where they are abused tortured held for ransom and even sold as slaves The debate over how to handle migration isn’t going to end Europe but it will define it Stricter policies could mean more dead bodies washing up on Europe’s beaches More liberal ones if managed badly could further embolden far-right agendas “This really is a battle over the soul of Europe” says Knaus “If we can show that it is possible to not only reduce arrivals but to reduce the number of deaths in the Mediterranean while also treating those who arrive decently and allowing them to successfully integrate into society we can achieve so much more for Europe as a whole” Not just for Europe but for the lives of those who come seeking refuge and a new life free from fear from tyranny and from war The refugee crisis may

published: Aug 31 2015Correction appended Sept 8In the three years since My Brilliant Friend was first published in English Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels have wooed many readers with their forceful elegance and unusual perspective on friendship But while the relationship between protagonists Elena and Lila is the story’s heart there’s another character exerting a strong influence on their lives: the city of Naples which is portrayed in gritty detail throughout the novels When My Brilliant Friend begins Elena and Lila are primary school students born near the end of World War II and growing up there in the 1950s and ’60s Though Elena escapes to a better life in other cities in the subsequent books The Story of a New Name and Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay Naples maintains a gravitational pull on her In The Story of the Lost Child—the series’ final installment out Tuesday in the US—she finally returns to her hometown where life is as turbulent as everWhile Elena and Lila have their ups and downs Naples is consistently depicted as a place of violence poverty and social unrest And in large part that’s for good reason: though Ferrante’s characters are fictional her Naples is based on truthRelatedBooksWhat You Didn’t Know About the Act of Reading BooksBooksWhat You Didn’t Know About the Act of Reading BooksThe 20th-century history of Naples was a particularly hard one explains Rutgers University Associate Professor Paola Gambarota who is writing a book about the city and the devastation experienced during the war set it up to be a place of remarkable deprivation and struggle Naples was bombed more than 100 times during World War II and when the Germans prepared to evacuate the city before the Allies landed in 1943 "Nazis destroyed the whole port" she says "because they knew that this would be the main port of operation for the Allies" When troops arrived the water gas and electricity systems had all been destroyed Because the shipping system had been paralyzed citizens were at first guaranteed only 100 calories-worth of food per day by the Allies The destruction was so great Gambarota says "Maybe only Berlin in 1945 can be compared"While the Allied forces quickly restored the city’s infrastructure problems remained: The black market was a powerful force in the port city and as much as a third of the goods imported by the Allies were stolen and sold illegally While wealthier Neapolitans had been able to flee to safer areas like Sorrento or Capri the poor and the petit bourgeoisie stayed behind to suffer the consequences though some also benefited from the black market like the Solara family in Ferrante’s novelsThe city had already been poor before the war—little was invested in the South when Italian Unification began a century earlier—but afterward Gambarota says "the socioeconomic situation in Naples.

women and students took to the streets Wednesday and played the parai, gave credence to that allegation Taking sworn testimony in a FOIA case is rare but Sullivan approved a discovery plan presented in March by Judicial Watch to interview Abedin and another top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills as well as five current and former State Department officials The group is limited to asking questions about why Clinton set up and used a private server for all her work and personal emails as Secretary of State and how the State Department responded to the groups FOIA request Sullivan has said it is an open question whether Clintons private email system was set up deliberately to thwart FOIA In February Sullivan noted the State Departments Inspector General had recently reported that Mills was aware of both the FOIA request from Judicial Watch and the private e-mail server He also pointed out that at least one State Department official has said that documents on the private server should have been provided in another FOIA case but werent And he has repeatedly referred to an email exchange from early in Clintons tenure at State where Abedin rejected a proposal to run a private e-mail system out of State after a top official told her it would be subject to FOIA Clinton herself has repeatedly said the private server was set up as a matter of convenience But in open court last February Sullivan said "Were talking about a Cabinet-level official who was accommodated by the government for reasons unknown to the public" Sullivan suggested State knowingly failed to comply with FOIA as part of that accommodation "Im hard-pressed to find that the government didnt know [about the server] so one of the big questions is: Why did it take until 2015" for State to do an adequate search As bad as the ongoing case may seem for Clinton politically legally she has less to worry about The case is not criminal but civil which means the only likely consequence of a Judicial Watch victory would be Clinton or her aides having to turn over more documents for review and possible release by State Those documents could include any e-mails Clintons associates deleted as "personal" if they exist: some may have been recovered by the FBI as part of its separate criminal investigation into how classified information got onto the private server Here’s where Clinton’s predecessor comes in Kissinger who served as Secretary of State under presidents Nixon and Ford has already done much of the work ensuring she wont pay a price for her unorthodox use of a private server As Secretary of State Kissinger kept transcripts of some of his work calls In the pre-electronic era he took the only copies with him when he left government in the mid-1970s storing them at Nelson Rockefellers estate in Westchester and then transferring them to the Library of Congress with tight restrictions on who could look at them The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press sued for access but then-Justice William Rehnquist a Nixon appointee ruled in a 5-2 decision that State had no obligation to search for documents that had been removed from the department even if they had been improperly taken because they were no longer in their possession Judicial Watch is hanging its hopes on a footnote in which Rehnquist writes that his ruling might not apply in a case where someone is actively trying to thwart FOIA In his dissent to Rehnquist’s ruling Justice John Paul Stevens said it would be "unseemly to invite litigation and discovery into the subjective motivation of agency officials responsible for processing the flood of paper that threatens to engulf today’s bureaucracy” Judge Sullivan who was appointed by Bill Clinton to the federal court clearly disagrees In any case the Kissinger case may not be enough to protect Clinton from further political fallout In court last February Sullivan threatened to issue a subpoena for any outstanding records of Clintons emails work-related or otherwise And if the depositions of Abedin Mills and the State Department officials convince Sullivan that there was an attempt to thwart FOIA he could order Clinton herself to be deposed just as the general campaign heats up in the fall Contact us at editors@timecomIndia and Pakistan conducted their traditional flag-lowering ceremony at the Wagah border crossing on Monday evening a day after a terrorist killed nearly 60 people in a suicide bombing on the Pakistani side Taking place at the only land crossing between the two neighbors the ceremony is a major tourist attraction There was talk of it being canceled but in the event it went ahead sending a message to the militants “Today’s ceremony proved that terrorists cannot lower the spirit of the nation by their cowardly activities” said Lieut General Naveed Zaman commander of Pakistan’s Lahore Corps Multiple militant organizations all splinter groups of the Pakistani Taliban are claiming responsibility for Sundays attack saying it was in response to the Pakistan armys recent anti-insurgency crackdown in the countrys North Waziristan region But the attacks implications for India which has fought three wars with Pakistan cannot be ignored several experts speaking to TIME say "It is difficult to believe that whoever was involved in planning this attack did not have any idea of its implications" says Radha Kumar director of the Delhi Policy Group Kumar adds that trade and travel between the two countries already at a bare minimum would likely be impacted "With flights between the two countries down to one a week more and more people are using Wagah to cross over" she says Ved Marwah chairman of the Indian governments task force on National Security and the Criminal Justice System and author of the book Uncivil Wars: Pathology of Terrorism in India said India presents the "No 1 target" for any forces threatening the security and stability of Pakistan "I think its a very serious threat we cant take it lightly" Marwah says "The very fact that three organizations are claiming credit for this particular incident shows how deep the infection has infiltrated into Pakistan" The two countries have engaged in an on-again off-again dialogue toward peace over the years and their recent relationship has been tense mainly because of escalating military conflicts in the contentious Kashmir region India has long accused the ISI Pakistans intelligence agency of encouraging and even facilitating cross-border terrorism but the apparent lack of control over these groups has alarm bells ringing on both sides of the border "I think the primary message of this explosion is for Pakistan these groups are saying that despite the dislocation of the Pakistani Taliban they still have power to challenge the state" said Hasan Askari Rizvi a prominent Pakistani defense analyst explaining the likely motives behind Sundays attack "India will have to recognize that not all groups are under Pakistani control" Rizvi says A degree of skepticism remains on the Indian side however and an Indian government official speculated to the Economic Times that the bombers intended target was India "They may not be [under the ISI]" says Marwah "but the fact is their agendas and the ISIs agendas converge as far as India is concerned" Rizvi admits that he shares that concern as well especially following the weakening of the Pakistani Taliban which has led to a realignment and attempted assertion of power among its rebel factions Major General Rashid Qureshi a former spokesperson for the Pakistani army and close aide of former President Pervez Musharraf says the North Waziristan operation should have started a long time ago and blames the current civilian government for the lapse "In their effort to prove their democratic credentials our government seems to tolerate lawlessness which I think defies proper governance" Qureshi says "The delay definitely strengthened these extremists and terrorists and they were able to get a fair amount of influence and hold in the tribal regions" he adds Qureshi describes the Wagah border as a "soft target" for the terrorists the one place where he says India and Pakistan show some degree of cooperative interaction "I think this act of terrorism had a twofold aim to sow the seeds of doubt in the minds of the Pakistanis as well as the Indians because the moment you see such an act happening so close to your border you get a little apprehensive” While all three men agree that the two countries need to work together to resolve the issue through dialogue the actual possibility of that happening seems low under the current circumstances "Theres very little likelihood of the leadership talking to each other because the political situation in Pakistan would not allow that" says Marwah referring to the massive protests facing Pakistans Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and urging the need for back-channel diplomacy "[Prime Minister Narendra] Modi in India doesnt have the political compulsions that his counterpart has" Rizvi says the fact that the attacks targeted Pakistan serves is a saving grace of sorts "Had such an incident taken place on the other side of the border it would have created a major crisis in India-Pakistan relations" Write to Rishi Iyengar at rishiiyengar@timeasiacom In November 2013.
