first_imgBengaluru: The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will stage protests across Karnataka on Tuesday demanding Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy’s resignation as his coalition government lost majority following the resignation of 14 Congress-JD-S legislators and two Ministers, a party official said. “Our leaders and cadres will hold demonstrations in all the district headquarters across the state between 11 a.m. and noon for Kumaraswamy’s resignation, as he has no moral right to continue after the MLAs of the ruling allies resigned and his government has been reduced to minority in the Assembly,” Bharatiya Janata Party spokesman G. Madhusudana told IANS here. Also Read – IAF Day: Tributes paid to soldiers killed in line of duty in Jammu Of the 14 lawmakers who resigned, 11 belong to the Congress and three Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S). While 10 Congress MLAs resigned on July 6, one (Anand Singh) resigned on July 1. Small-Scale Industries Minister and Independent H. Nagesh and Municipalities Administration Minister and KPJP legislator R. Shankar resigned from the cabinet and withdrew support to the 13-month coalition government on Monday. “If the Speaker (K.R. Ramesh Kumar) accepts the resignations of all the rebels on Tuesday, Kumaraswamy will have no option but face the floor test for a trial of strength to prove if his government has majority,” Madhusudan said. Also Read – Shashi Tharoor writes to PM Modi: Don’t let your ‘mann ki baat’ become ‘maun ki baat’ In the 225-member Assembly, the Congress has 79 legislators excluding the Speaker, JD-S 39, BJP 105, while one each from the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Karnataka Pragnyavantha Janatha Party (KPJP) and Independent. As the nominated member from the Anglo-Christian community does not have voting rights, the half-way mark (113) is required for simple majority. With the Independent and KPJP member withdrawing support, the government’s strength is reduced to 116, as BSP member N. Mahesh is an ally of the JD-S, three more than the halfway mark. In the event of the Speaker accepting the resignations of all the 14 Congress-JD-S rebels, the government’s strength will reduce to 101 from 115 (78+37) and that of Assembly to 211, with 106 as the halfway mark for simple majority. The 11 Congress legislators who resigned are Ramalinga Reddy, S.T. Somashekar, Bayrati Basavaraj, Munirathna, Pratapgauda Patil, B.C. Patil, Ramesh Jarkiholi, Shivram Hebbar, Mahesh Kumatahalli, S.N. Subba Reddy and Anand Singh. The three JD-S MLAs are A.H. Vishwanath, N. Narayana Gowda and Gopalaiah (Mahalakshmim). The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah has urged the rebels to attend the CLP meeting he has conveyed during the day ahead of the 10-day monsoon session of the state legislature from Friday.last_img read more


first_imgBeijing: India and Pakistan should quickly turn the page after the Pulwama terror attack, meet each other halfway and convert the present tensions into an opportunity for long term and fundamental improvement in their relations, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Friday. Wang also said post-Wuhan summit between President Xi Jinping and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, China wants to develop closer ties with India and forge ahead like the “Yangtze and Ganges” rivers despite Beijing’s all weather ties with Pakistan. Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) killed 40 CRPF personnel in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district in February 14. India launched a counter-terror operation in Balakot on February 26. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 in an aerial combat and captured its pilot, who was handed over to India on March 1. “China hopes Pakistan and India will transform the crisis into opportunity and meet each other halfway,” Wang said at his annual press conference on the sidelines of the National People’s Congress, China’s Parliament. He was replying to questions on the present India-Pakistan tensions following the Pulwama terror attack and how China plans to carry forward the spirit of last year’s Wuhan summit between Prime Minister and President Xi. “We advise both the parties to quickly turn the page and seek fundamental, long term improvement in their relations. When confrontation gives way to dialogue and disagreement are settled, we can create a better future through cooperation,” he said. Recent events focussed international attention on the India-Pakistan relations, he said stating that China played a constructive role to resolve the tensions between the two neighbours. “China has stressed from the beginning the need to exercise restraint prevent an escalation, find out what has happened and resolve the matter through dialogue,” Wang said adding that Beijing tried to play a mediatory role. “In the meantime, country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity should fully respected. China followed these principle in its mediation and played a constructive role in defusing the tension”, he said. China recently dispatched its Vice Foreign Minister Kong Kong Xuanyou to Pakistan where he held talks with Prime Minister Imran Khan, Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, besides Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua, on ways to ease the India-Pakistan tensions. His visit coincided with the US, the UK and French application in the 1267 counter terrorism committee of the UNSC to declare JeM chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. If listed by the committee, Azhar would face a global travel ban and asset freeze. the JeM has already been banned by the UN. While China blocked India’s previous attempts to declare Azhar as a global terrorist, expectations are high that this time Beijing may take a different stand considering JeM has admitted its role in the Pulwama terror attack. “In the last couple of days both Pakistan and India indicated a desire to de-escalate the situation and start talks. We welcome this. Pakistan and India are neighbours and always have to live with each other,” Wang said. “Both countries face important opportunities to realise stability, development and prosperity. China hopes the two countries will get along and progress together,” he said. Asked post-Wuhan summit, how China plans to develop its relations with India in the light of challenges and Beijing’s close ties with Pakistan, Wang said 2018 was an “year of great significance for China and India relations”. “The historic meeting between President Xi and Prime Minister Modi at Wuhan has created a new model of high level interactions between our two countries deepened and trust between our leaders and set the direction for our future relations,” he said. The priority now is to see that the strategic understanding reached by the two leader should go down to the people and become their common view through conscious efforts, he said. “China will work with India to comprehensively strengthen sectoral cooperation and people-to-people ties which are vital importance in the current context so that our friendship and cooperation will forge ahead like the Yangtze and Ganges giving strong and sustained impetus to our relationship,” he said. Wang said India and China are ancient civilisations with combined population of 2.7 billion besides being the largest developing countries and neighbours. “China and India should be each other’s partners in pursing our respective dreams and each other’s important opportunity for growing our respective economies. Collectively we must make our due contribution to Asia’s revitalisation and prosperity,” the foreign minister said.last_img read more


first_imgNew Delhi: State-run Air India seems to be finally getting its preferential rights in allocation of traffic rights over foreign routes after losing it to private carriers in the previous UPA government. The government has decided to allot it about 5,700 weekly seats out of grounded Jet Airways’ unused quota on the lucrative India-Dubai route. The public sector airline has also been promised over 5,000 seats on India-Qatar route besides about 4,600 additional seats to and from London following the re-allocation of grounded Jet’s unused international traffic rights. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraA Civil Aviation Ministry told IANS that Air India will get preference in allocation of bilateral seat entitlements. “The allocation would be for the ongoing summer schedule and considered temporary given that efforts are on to revive Jet Airways,” said a reliable source. Amid faint possibility of grounded Jet Airway’s revival anytime soon, the ministry had on May 3 held a meeting with local carriers to discuss re-allocation of the airline’s foreign traffic rights. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysPrivate carriers SpiceJet, IndiGo, GoAir, Vistara and Air India had pitched for bigger share of the pie in the last meeting. While IndiGo co-founder Rahul Bhatia had suggested for allocating foreign traffic rights in proportion to various airlines’ fleet capacity, Vistara argued that smaller airlines be given bigger share. Jet Airways had last month withdrawn operations due to severe fund crunch and remain grounded in absence of a viable revival plan. While re-allocation of traffic rights would ensure additional capacity on various popular foreign routes thus reducing fare level, it will significantly affect the valuation of Jet Airways. Investors are already miffed over the government’s move to re-allocate its slots at various domestic airports.last_img read more


8 November 2011The United Nations has deplored the loss of life that occurred during election-related violence in the Liberian capital yesterday, and called on everyone to exercise restraint and ensure that peace is maintained. The UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has confirmed two deaths during the violence that occurred at the headquarters in Monrovia of the Congress for Democratic Change party. UN Police were sent to the location and an UNMIL helicopter was dispatched to patrol the area.“At this time the investigations are still ongoing to ascertain the circumstances of the incident,” UNMIL spokesperson Yasmina Bouziane said in a statement. “The situation has returned to calm, but we are monitoring the situation as it goes…“The Mission deplores the loss of life and calls on all parties, supporters and all Liberians to exercise maximum restraint and not resort to violent acts to ensure that peace is maintained and preserved in Liberia,” she added. The Mission said it is in contact with the relevant authorities to prevent any escalation of the situation.Liberians are voting today in the presidential run-off pitting incumbent Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Africa’s first democratically elected female president, against challenger Winston Tubman of the Congress for Democratic Change, who came second in the first round of the vote on 11 October.However, Mr. Tubman has reportedly refused to participate in the second round of voting, alleging that it will not be fair, and there have been calls to boycott the poll – the second presidential election since the country emerged from war in 2005.UN officials and the Security Council have in recent days called on Liberians to refrain from violence and conclude the electoral process in a peaceful manner. In a radio address to the nation yesterday, Ellen Margrethe Løj, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of UNMIL, stressed that all Liberians who wish to vote in the run-off must be able to do so freely and in safety. read more

More than 70 per cent of the UN joint appeal for $157 million is intended for food assistance for the Horn of Africa country, but only about $82 million has been pledged so far, OCHA says. After its 1998-2000 border conflict with Ethiopia, Eritrea’s problems were aggravated by the severe drought of 2002, which led to an almost total failure of that year’s harvest and resulted in acute shortages of drinking water and fodder. With inadequate rainfall since, more than two-thirds of the population have been exposed to the risk of famine, OCHA says.


“I read both victim’s statements out,” Baroness Newlove told the Daily Mirror. “Both times they [the offenders] were in the hearing room and you have to wait until they come in and then you go in.”If you go on your own with your MoJ representative for support, you can feel intimidated it’s a scary environment when you’ve got no rights and had to apply for permission to attend.

John Worboys’ victims were kept in the dark about his planned release from prisonCredit:Metropolitan Police /PA John Worboys Baroness Newlove Two of the three killers who kicked Garry Newlove to death are set to be released from prison, as his widow calls for a change in the law to allow victims of crime to be informed about parole hearings.Baroness Helen Newlove, now the Victims’ Commissioner, revealed her pain at attending the hearing of thugs Jordan Cunliffe, 26, and 28-year-old Stephen Sorton.The pair were moved to open prison last year – 12 years after killing her 47-year-old husband – ahead of their potential release from jail next year.Baroness Newlove is now trying to bring in the new law with campaigners and the support of the three major political parties, but the government has so far failed to introduce the legislation.She described the “frustrating” process of attending the killers’ parole hearings. She had to apply for permission to attend and, after reading a statement, was unable to ask questions. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Swellings was 19, Sorton, 17, and Cunliffe, 16, when they were given life sentences for murder in 2008, with terms of 17, 15 and 12 years respectively. Swellings will not be eligible for parole until 2024.A Parole Board spokeswoman said: “In 2017 the Board recommended Stephen Sorton and Jordan Cunliffe were suitable for a move to open conditions.” She said the law would give victims a legal right to be heard, and to be informed of decisions they could then challenge.Baroness Newlove said: “Release is a painful part of the victim journey. You know it must happen but it does not make it any easier. It’s just so painful.”Last year, she attended the parole hearings of Cunliffe and Sorton, but said she could not ask them anything about their attack.Video: Helen Newlove vows to fight for victims in Lords Baroness Newlove said of the parole hearings: ‘You get nothing in return other than a polite acknowledgement and thank you for coming’Credit:Heathcliff O’Malley for The Telegraph  “The hearing is cathartic. You get to look at the Parole Board panel and hopefully the offender in the eye. But it is frustrating. You get nothing in return other than a polite acknowledgement and thank you for coming.”You can only read your submitted statement. You cannot deviate from the script. There are no questions. For me it was frustrating.”Baroness Newlove’s comments come after the failings highlighted in the John Worboys case, where the black cab rapist’s victims were kept in the dark about his impending release. read more

first_imgAn Anne Arundel County man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for a gruesome shooting, which caused the victim to fall into a coma for four months and be hospitalized for a year.Prosecutors say Kelly Gross, 25, was sentenced Oct. 21 in Baltimore City Circuit Court. He was convicted of the crime in late July.The incident took place on the night of May 1, 2012 when Gross and a juvenile accomplice approached a car in an attempted robbery. He came up to the rear driver’s side door and pulled out a gun. He ordered his juvenile accomplice to go through the pockets of the passenger. When Gross realized that the passenger had nothing in the car he shot the victim multiple times in the torso and the limbs.The victim was taken to shock trauma at the University of Maryland Medical Center and had to endure 21 surgeries.“This sentence is an appropriate reflection of the seriousness of the crime and the terrible and permanent damage it caused. It represents another illustration of police and prosecutors working side by side to get one more violent repeat offender off the streets of Baltimore,” Baltimore City State’s Attorney Gregg Bernstein said in a press release.last_img read more

Craniofacial surgeons may also find clinical applications. For more information: www.ncsu.edu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The 3D-ID database’s size is hindered by limited access to contemporary skulls with clearly recorded demographic histories.To develop a more robust database, Ross and her team launched a study to test using CT scans to obtain skull coordinate data from living people. However, the five midline coordinates the researchers tested showed inconsistencies between the CT scans and manual mapping. Midline coordinates are those found along the center of the skull, such as the bridge of the nose. The team is continuing research to analyze and correct the inconsistencies.  Related Content The researchers found eight bilateral coordinates on the skull—those found on either side of the head—were consistent for both the CT scans and manual mapping, allowing a significant expansion of the database.

first_imgPARIS (AP) — Those defending France’s famously stringent labor protections were in an uproar Tuesday as the Socialist government worked to ram through relatively modest reforms in the land of the 35-hour workweek.The measure making it easier for businesses to open late and lay off workers is named for and blamed on Finance Minister Emmanuel Macron, a former investment banker who is taking on some of the most visible symbols of France’s stagnant economy. By forcing the measure through without a vote Tuesday, the Socialist government, criticized for doing too little by champions of the free market, effectively is quelling a rebellion from within the party for doing too much.Prime Minister Manuel Valls invoked rarely used special powers to force the bill through and French President Francois Hollande promised it would become law by July 14, linking his economic legacy to France’s national holiday.“The country needs to reform, needs to advance,” Valls told lawmakers to scattered boos.Among other things, the patchwork of measures allows stores to open 12 times a year on Sunday instead of five, lets stores expand evening hours and makes layoffs easier. It does not touch the country’s 35-hour workweek.Facing a stagnant economy and unemployment hovering around 10 percent since he took office in 2012, Hollande has shifted gears from his left-wing campaign persona. But about 40 Socialist lawmakers have publicly revolted against his new agenda of lower taxes and pro-business measures.Valls resorted to bypassing a vote once and was forced to do so again Tuesday after amendments. He might even face a third time.“(We) expect efficiency for our economy and our enterprises. It comes down to that,” he said. New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Get a lawn your neighbor will be jealous of Opposition lawmakers from both the conservatives and far-left have announced plans for a largely symbolic no-confidence vote in response, likely by the end of the week.Copyright © The Associated Press.

first_img July 8, 2015 542 Views The Enterprises & CSS Develop Industry Advisory Group Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and Common Securitization Solutions, LLC (CSS) jointly announced on Wednesday the development of an Industry Advisory Group. The group will provide feedback and share information on efforts to build the Common Securitization Platform (CSP) and implement the Single Security.According the organizations, the Single Security is a joint initiative of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, directed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), to develop a single mortgage-backed security that will be issued by the Enterprises to finance fixed-rate mortgage loans backed by one-to four-unit single-family properties.The CSP is a technology and operational platform that is being developed by CSS, the companies said. This new development is a new venture of both Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. CSP will perform many of the core back office operations for the Single Security, as well as most of the Enterprises’ current securitization functions for single-family mortgages, on behalf of the Enterprises. The CSP is necessary for the implementation of the Single Security.In May, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued an update to mortgage-backed security (MBS) structure initiative, also known as Single Security. The new changes to the Single Security structure initiative were based on 23 responses to a “Request for Public Input: Proposed Single Security Structure (RFI)” released in August 2014 by the FHFA. The Single Security initiative has not yet been approved or enacted.”FHFA’s Update should give everyone a sense of how the Single Security will be developed and the solid progress that has been made over the past year,” said Dave Lowman, EVP of single-family business at Freddie Mac. “We strongly believe in the Single Security’s potential for expanding liquidity in the TBA (to be announced) market, lowering housing finance costs, and making the housing finance system more competitive and resilient.”The 2014 Conservatorship Strategic Plan for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac consisted of creating a single MBS that the enterprises could provide finance fixed-rate mortgage loans backed by one to four single-family unit properties. According to the FHFA, the initial goal was to assist in building a Common Securitization Platform (CSP) and support the statutory obligation to ensure the liquidity of the nation’s housing finance markets issued by the FHFA. Taxpayers would also not have to suffer the cost of subsidizing Freddie Mac’s securitization of single-family mortgage loans with the Single Security initiative.“Today’s Single Security Update is an important milestone, providing additional details on the features of the Single Security and the strong progress made to date by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Common Securitization Solutions (CSS) on implementation planning,” said Andrew Bon Salle, EVP of single-family business at Fannie Mae. “We will continue to work with FHFA, Freddie Mac, and CSS to ensure we transition to the Single Security in a safe and sound manner.”Participants in the Industry Advisory Group will come from:Freddie MacFannie MaeCommon Securitization SolutionsThe Center for Responsible LendingFinancial Services RoundtableFixed Income Clearing CorporationMortgage Bankers AssociationIndependent Community Bankers AssociationAmerican Bankers AssociationSecurities Industry and Financial Markets AssociationStructured Finance Industry Group Sharecenter_img Common Securitization Solutions Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Single Security 2015-07-08 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Newslast_img read more
