If there’s one thing bloggers (some of them, anyway) love above all else, it’s a juicy Apple rumor. And if there’s one person who loves nothing more than churning out Apple rumors, it’s a securities analyst. Today, it’s talk of an iPad mini that has internet buzzing.Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White has been touring Chinese and Taiwanese suppliers and has heard rumblings about the iPad mini. But don’t go working yourself into a tizzy just yet.Ticonderoga has missed the mark more than a few times recently, and with Apple predictions specifically. They were certain Apple was going to unveil two phones at the Let’s Talk iPhone event — including a unibody iPhone 5 in addition to a cheaper iPhone 4S. The iPhone 5 was also supposed to sport a dual core processor running at at least 1.2GHz, because it “will clearly need to [do so] to match the Samsung Galaxy S II.” In reality, the 4S sports a 1GHz processor underclocked to 800MHz, and Apple has never really concerned itself with “matching” competitors.And what about day one sales predictions? Ticonderoga claimed that “pent up demand” for the new model would obliterate first-day presale records and tally a whopping 1.7 million for the iPhone 4S. The actuality: Apple reportedly sold one million plus on day one. That’s a mind-blowing number, to be sure, but it’s a teensy bit short of 1.7 million.So when Ticonderoga reports rumblings of an iPad mini, take it with a grain of salt. They’re also saying that the “mini” refers not to the device’s size but to its price. Does an Apple “mini” product that’s not smaller than the original make sense? Think Mac vs. Mac Mini or iPod vs. iPod Nano.With Steve Jobs’ passing, there were bound to be new rumors about an addition to the iPad line. Jobs, of course, was not a fan of smaller tablets like the PlayBook. But even with the arrival of the Kindle Fire, would Apple really consider releasing a device that sits between the iPhone and iPad?Macbooks continue to sell well at their Apple-determined price levels, and the iPad will, too. Does Apple need a cheaper tablet? Probably not, especially if there’s a price cut coming for the iPad 2 when the iPad 3 arrives.More at BGR

The owner of a McDonald’s franchise that caught fire Wednesday said she is going to rebuild the restaurant.“Absolutely,” said Val Hadwin, co-owner of North Star Restaurants Inc., which includes 15 McDonald’s in Southwest Washington. The restaurant, at 2110 E. Fourth Plain Blvd., will require a total rebuild, said Hadwin, who explained that what’s left of the building is unstable and will need to be knocked down. Only two walls and the structure’s play area remained intact.A rebuilding timeline has not yet been determined.Insurance evaluators and fire investigators were working side-by-side Thursday, evaluating the extent of the damage. It remains unclear what caused the car to go up in flames, said Jim Flaherty, a Vancouver Fire Department spokesman. It’s also unclear how exactly the fire spread from the car to the building.Flaherty said the flames “extended” to the building, either by shattering the glass drive-through window or entering into the open space between the roof and the drop-down ceiling. “I’m sure today they’re standing out there looking at it and, like, ‘Whoa,’” Flaherty said.An 80-year-old woman was pulled from her white Ford Crown Victoria by a man behind her in the drive-through line who saw flames quickly moving up the sides of the car. The woman was checked out by paramedics but appeared to be OK, save for some scratches.Twelve employees were evacuated when the Rose Village-area restaurant caught fire at about 11 a.m. Wednesday. Two were treated for minor smoke-inhalation.They were all given Thursday off to recover from the traumatic experience, Hadwin said. They’ll be transferred to other locations owned by Hadwin and her husband, Matt Hadwin. The restaurant, one of more than 12,800 McDonald’s in the U.S., opened in 1996. Damage was estimated at $1 million.
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) – A casting call was held Tuesday for young girls hoping to earn a spot in the musical “Waitress.”Dozens showed up to the casting call in Fort Lauderdale, which was held to find two little girls to play the character of Lulu in the musical.The chosen duo will share the role and will each perform eight shows during the musical’s limited two-week run in Fort Lauderdale.“It’s going very well,” said Kyra Kennedy, who was conducting the auditions. “I’m so over-impressed by the amount of talent these little girls have, so it’s very hard to choose.”“Waitress” tells the story of Jenna, a pie baker working at a local diner, and Lulu is her daughter.The critically-acclaimed Broadway musical hits the stage April 11 through April 22 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones season 8Game of Thrones (@gameofthrones/Instagram)Game of Thrones may have ended but there are thousands of fans who would love to see a spinoff series of their favorite characters. Right after HBO’s Emmy Award-winning drama ended, fans started to wonder whether they will get to see Maisie Williams’ Arya Stark’s spinoff and now, Dark Phoenix movie star Sophie Turner has opened up about her thoughts on a possible Sansa Stark’s spinoff.In Game of Thrones season 8 episode 6 “The Iron Throne” we saw how Sansa Stark argued with Bran Stark or Bran the Broken to let North be an independent realm, which Bran agrees to do. In the final scenes, we saw how all the Northerners came together to coronate Sansa Stark as the Queen in the North. The idea of Sophie Turner’s Sansa’s spinoff seems intriguing as there are several stories that would come in play if Sansa starts to rule but will there be any Sansa Stark’s spinoff?While talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Sophie Turner talked about her character’s journey and what are her thoughts on working in a spinoff series.”It’s time for me to say goodbye. She’s ended up in a place that I’m so happy with. I don’t know. It would be different if someone actually came and said, “We want to do a Sansa spinoff show,” but I’m pretty sure I’d say no. It’s been 10 years of watching this character grow, and she’s at her peak right now. I’m sure if she carried on and did a spinoff show, it would just be downhill from there. She’d have to go through some other terrible traumas or something, and I don’t want to do that.” Sophie TurnerGetty ImagesThe trauma which Sophie Turner is talking about is the mental and physical abuse Sansa Stark endured in all the seasons. At first, she had to lose her direwolf just because Prince Joffrey wanted that. Following which, she saw the execution of her father, Ed Stark, right in front of her. Later she got married to Tyrion Lannister, who although never touched her but it was not easy to stay married to an imp. When she ran away from the King’s Landing, she found herself in the claws of Peter Baelish aka Littlefinger who gave away her like a piece of meat to Ramsay Bolton, who raped her on multiple occasions.Considering the ordeal Sansa Stark faced in her life, it should seem all right if the creators would like to end her story the way they did in Game of Thrones season 8.
The same local reporter who tweeted that Williams planned to bid on D.C.’s Washington City Paper, recently tweeted that the media mogul told him he will not be the next owner of the paper.“I’m going to stay in the space I’m welcome: television stations,” Ben Terris, a writer for the Washington Post tweeted the media mogul saying on Dec. 11.The change of direction seems sudden when on Dec. 7, Williams’ spokesman Shermichael Singleton confirmed to the AFRO via email that Williams has made a bid for the paper.“Mr. Williams has always been committed to journalism, both print and media,” Singleton wrote. “His interest in WCP is out of respect and admiration for the history of the paper and the role it has played in D.C. As the media landscape changes because of technology, Mr. Williams understands the importance of preserving such institutions as the Washington City Paper, hence his interest in it.”However, it was not the possibility of Williams’ acquisition of a paper that caused buzz in the Beltway. Instead, it was the type of paper he was eying. Known for progressive prose and alternative stories, the publication is viewed by many as an unlikely match for Williams, who gained notoriety for his right-of-center views, his defense of Clarence Thomas during the 1991 Supreme Court confirmations, and as a campaign strategist for 2016 presidential candidate Ben Carson.But Williams said that the unlikelihood of the match is one of the reasons the conservative operative wanted to buy the paper.“My goal is to make the City Paper so good people will be saying, ‘Are you sure Armstrong Williams is the owner of this paper?’” he told the Washington Post. “That would be a success.”Unsurprisingly, City Paper employees don’t seem as optimistic about the news of their potential new boss. Mother Jones, which initially broke the story in November, reported that employees learned of Williams’ interest earlier that month. According to the Post, a number of these same staffers “have discussed the possibility of quitting.”Williams’ attempted acquisition of the City Paper, like many of his previous actions, is wrought with controversy and uncertainty. However, this was not Williams’ first failed entrepreneurial encounter with the media world.Singleton described him as “the largest minority owner of broadcast television stations in the United States,” and noted that Williams attempted unsuccessfully to purchase Essence Magazine and D.C.’s well-known Capitol Hill publication, The Hill.For more than three decades, The Washington City Paper has been a source of local political news in the D.C. area. Despite its longevity, readership and revenue have declined in recent years; in 2008, the paper declared bankruptcy.The City Paper’s current owners, Nashville-based SouthComm, announced plans to sell the D.C. publication in October. How much SouthComm is seeking for the publication remains unclear. Washington, D.C. businessman and Washington Kastles owner Marc Ein is set to be the next owner of the Washington City Paper, according to the paper’s blog post on Dec. 28. The deal is set to close soon.The news comes a few weeks after Armstrong Williams, Ben Carson’s business manager, decided he no longer wanted to venture into the free newspaper business.Armstrong Williams (Courtesy Photo)
(Phys.org) —Researchers from the University of Glasgow and the University of Cambridge have devised a unique method of capturing three-dimensional images. As described in a paper published in the journal Science, they used an ordinary light projector, four single-pixel photodetectors, an analog-to-digital converter, and a computer to capture 3-D images of a mannequin head. Single-pixel power: Scientists make 3-D images without a camera More information: Science 17 May 2013: Vol. 340 no. 6134 pp. 844-847 DOI: 10.1126/science.1234454 The idea is based on the concept of ghost imaging where paired light sources, such as a split laser beam, are used to create 3-D images. Prior efforts have involved shooting a target with one part of the split beam, then capturing the reflected light with a photodetector. The other part of the beam is recorded by a traditional camera. In this new effort, the researchers took a much more pragmatic approach—they accomplished the same thing using simpler equipment.To create the 3-D image, the researchers set up a light projector—the same kind used for viewing slides on a screen—with the light projected onto a mannequin head. Next, they placed a transparent screen capable of displaying light-blocking speckle patterns (generated by the computer) between the projector and the mannequin head. Light able to pass through the speckle pattern would eventually strike the mannequin and bounce off. Four single-pixel photodetectors were set up to capture the bounced light—one each above, below and to each side of the projector. The photodectectors were connected to an analog-to-digital converter which sent results to the computer. Once everything was in place, the researchers caused the computer to send different speckle patterns to the screen while the photodetectors captured the reflected light. Each pass allowed the computer to capture more information. As the total number of speckle patterns reached a million, individual 2-D images emerged—each one based on data from a single photodetector. Software on the computer then used the four 2-D images to create a single 3-D image. How such a system might be used is still up for debate, as some issues still need to be worked out. The slow refresh rate, for example, means it takes half an hour to create one image. The researchers are confident they can refine the design, however, to speed up the process. Once that happens, they suggest, their imaging system might be useful for detecting gas fields, building medical systems or catching terrorists at airports.Original press release.

The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo It should come as no surprise that Ponder credits the Cardinals’ defense with their early season success, as Arizona’s 10th ranked defense has been praised by nearly every opposing team they’ve faced this year. “There’s a lot of different stuff that they do, but they’re very good at what they do,” said Ponder. ” A lot of times when you see teams that show a bunch of different looks, they aren’t really sound in what they do, but they’re really sound in what they do and they have a lot of good players. They’re a very tough defense, and it’s going to be a tough challenge for us as an offense.”Ponder, who’s been sacked 13 times this season, went on to say that he has his eyes specifically on the Cardinals pass rush.“They’ve got a number of guys that have been able to get to the quarterback,” said Ponder. “Between [O’Brien Schofield],Calais [Campbell] and Daryl Washington. We’re going to have a tough job on our hands to be able to protect. Our offensive line is going to have to do a good job. A lot of guys are getting to the quarterback and they’re using good hands. Everyone’s athletic. It’s going to be tough for us. Those are guys that we’ve kind of singled out that we’re going to have to protect against.” Top Stories 0 Comments Share Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact While this game may not be a divisional battle, a victory could serve as a significant momentum shift in the wild card picture down the road. The Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings were both expected to finish near the bottom of the standings, but each has emerged as a surprisingly successful team early in the season.But heading into their Week 7 matchup against each other, Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder said he expects both teams will continue to win and see their success translate into a playoff birth.“We’ve both made jumps from last year to this year and as the Minnesota Vikings we expect this to continue and that we’re going to be playing in the playoffs,” said Ponder. “I have a feeling that’s exactly what the Cardinals are feeling as well. They’ve got a great defense that’s going to keep them in it. They’re going to keep getting better and stringing wins together and that’s what we expect as well.”

victory for open access advocates two US lawmakers yesterday dropped a bill that would have banned the National Institutes of Health from requiring that its researchers submit their peer-reviewed manuscripts to a public archive The news came shortly after scientific publishing giant Elsevier withdrew its support for the bill following a threatened boycott of Elsevier journals by thousands of researchers The Research Works Act introduced by representatives Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) would prevent any US agency from mandating that researchers it funds post their peer-reviewed or edited papers on the Internet (NIH’s public access policy does so after delay of up to a year) The measure was backed by the Association of American Publishers but many nonprofit and some commercial publishers came out against it including Nature and AAAS the publisher of ScienceInsider And around 7500 mathematicians and other researchers concerned about Elsevier’s support for the bill and "exorbitantly high" journal prices signed an online petition pledging not to publish in edit or review for the Amsterdam-based company’s journals Yesterday Elsevier announced that after hearing concerns from "authors editors and reviewers" it no longer backs the bill "While we continue to oppose government mandates in this area Elsevier is withdrawing support for the Research Work Act itself We hope this will address some of the concerns expressed and help create a less heated and more productive climate for our ongoing discussions with research funders" the company said In a separate statement Elsevier said it plans to lower its prices for single mathematics articles and allow free access to many math articles published at least 4 years ago Hours later Issa and Maloney released a statement saying that after hearing from both sides "We have come to the conclusion that the Research Works Act has exhausted the useful role it can play in the debate" The lawmakers "will not be taking legislative action on HR 3699 the Research Works Act" the statement says See today’sNew York Times science’s section for a review of the long-running battle about open access The Benue State Government has explained why it is planning to privatize some state-owned enterprises Ortom had in an advertorial placed in a national daily called for qualified investors to come and invest in the state-owned properties Among companies the governor is putting up for privatization include Benue Links Transport Company Otukpo Burnt Bricks Benue Foods and Beverages Company Makurdi Modern Market and others Reacting to the many criticisms trailing the decision to privatize the companies Commissioner for Industry Trade And Investment Professor Tersoo Kpelai said the development would bring back the dead companies alive He told newsmen that Benue people should rather support the governor instead of faulting his efforts in trying to bring those companies back on feet Text of his speech reads in full: Ladies and gentlemen I wish to first and foremost appreciate all Benue sons and daughters at home and in the diaspora for their positive reactions regarding the decision of the State Council on Privatization and Commercialization of Public Enterprises to revive our moribund industries and other erring state owned enterprises We also appreciate other sons and daughters of the state who hold negative views regarding this economic reform programme One of the present administration’s economic policy focus is to develop an agricultural – driven industrialization that will provide value added- inclusive economic growth in Benue state Reviving our moribund State owned industries is a strategic activity towards achieving this agricultural – driven industrialization policy It is worthy of note that two options exist presently to revive moribund industries and other state owned enterprises these include : 1State Government will inject more funds for turn-around of the factories and enterprises 2 Wholly privatize these enterprises or partially transfer ownership of such enterprises to private hands /investors Our choice to privatize wholly or partially the eleven (11) enterprises advertised in The Nation Newspaper of 10th April 2018 is anchored on the principles of bringing efficiency effective performance and economic prosperity of the state Gentlemen of the press it may interest you to know that all the 11 enterprises listed for privatization were established for over a decade but most of these enterprises are not operational in the last six years and even the ones that are sparingly operational do so at loss Privatizing has therefore become the only option since Government currently has developmental challenges with slim resources Privatizing these enterprises will bring efficiency and effective performance as investors will bring in capital new technology skills better management expertise among others which will make these enterprises more profitable These enterprises if run profitably will provide job opportunities for our teeming youths create wealth boost the state IGR and create value chain across diverse sectors of the Benue economy Let me reemphasize that the desire to privatize these enterprises is not for personal gains but for economic prosperity of the state The present administration’s commitment to transparency and accountability is unparalleled and that is why we have as specified by the law undergone due process by advertising the enterprises to the public in a reputable newspaper like “the Nation” for international and local investors that have the capacity to take advantage of the window and invest in our dear State It is also pertinent to inform the people who hold negative views about privatization to readress their minds because economic policies are driven by facts and prevailing societal challenges and not on the basis of sentiments or assumptions Most of the enterprises listed for sale have remained comatose for decades serving more or less as monuments and not adding any economic value to the state More so the privatization law provides the retention of not less than twenty (20) percent equity shares by the State /indigenes It is a statement of fact that lease arrangement provides as a component of privatization the right of first refusal to the lessee to purchase the company if the lessor decides to sale It is in light of the aforementioned that the State Council on Privatization and Commercialization of Public Enterprises has included companies held by lessees in the State This provision is a win-win option The privatization law states that the leased enterprises be advertised to the public for the purposes of transparency and accountability Permit me to specifically throw more light on the inclusion of Makurdi Modern Market and Benue Links Ltd in the ongoing exercise Half of the Modern Market was gutted by fire in 2005 and 2011 This has forced

size and the fact that its purpose is to bring land already owned by the city inside The land is occupied by Grand Forks’ current and old landfills water treatment lagoons and the Public Works baling facility The annexation is intended in part to formalize the city’s responsibility for maintaining the township roads which usually is the township’s job"That was a big part of it That and the fact that a lot of people assumed that the city already annexed that" said Ryan Brooks a senior planner with the city Unlike most annexations it will not be for development which has pushed the edge of the city bit by bit through new businesses and homesOther additionsAnother pending addition to the city is the expansion of the Grand Forks Industrial Park which needs more land available for potential companies to build on The annexation would bring about 150 acres within the city limits Brooks said "Anybody who goes in there is going to need to be on the city infrastructure" he said Grand Forks’ older core follows DeMers Avenue and Washington Street with Columbia Road making the western edge before 1975 The city line moved south and west following new commercial and housingSince 1990 annexations followed 32nd Avenue South and at the Industrial Park The big expansion in recent decades was the annexation of land for the King’s Walk Golf Course The land along 42nd Street around the Alerus Center has been added to the city bit by bit and new housing has filled in south of 32nd AvenueSome pending annexation includes a hole just west of 42nd Street near the Alerus Center and south

Cell 145 (10 June 2011) A new literature analysis confirms what stem cell scientists have been saying for some time: Studies of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) which are touted as an ethical alternative to human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) often involve hESCs as well As a result research that restricts funding for hESCs would also harm iPSC research HESCs are derived from human embryos while iPSCs are made by reprogramming adult cells In a study in the 10 June issue of Cell Stanford University bioethicist Christopher Thomas Scott and colleagues analyze 2086 publications on hESCs and iPSCs from 1998 through 2010 While the number of publications using iPSCs has shot up since the first report on these cells in 2007 100 of 161 iPSC papers (62%) published last year used both types of cells Established investigators in particular tended to include hESCs which are often used as controls Many researchers are worried that a lawsuit claiming federally funded hESC research violates a ban on research that destroys human embryos could stymie their work The authors say that any decision by the courts or by legislators to limit funding for hESCs "will also have disastrous consequences for [iPSC funding] because research using the two different types of cell lines is deeply perhaps inextricably intertwined" It seems open revolt has its rewards Canada’s scientific community carved a major notch in its belt Wednesday by successfully forcing Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) President Alain Beaudet into a partial retreat from his controversial introduction of online peer review At an all-day meeting in Ottawa with roughly 50 practicing scientists convened at the behest of federal Health Minister Jane Philpott to quell an uprising over CIHR grantsmaking reforms Beaudet agreed to the introduction of a “hybrid” peer-review system It will use online review to cull roughly 60% of grants from consideration with the surviving 40% of proposals subject to face-to-face peer review to determine actual competition winners A contrite Beaudet emerged from the unprecedented gathering conducted under the watchful eye of two of Philpott’s political staffers and the deputy minister of health saying he’s hopeful the retreat will restore community faith in the CIHR But participants say the jury is still out “The devil is going to be in the details” said Jim Woodgett director of research at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute at Toronto Canada’s Mount Sinai Hospital who raised the alarm about Beaudet’s reforms by crafting a 27 June open letter to Philpott that attracted more than 1300 signatures The new online peer-review system “was a failed experiment” that shook community faith in fairness of grant selection processes he told ScienceInsider “Once you’ve lost confidence in a system you’ve got to put a lot of effort into it to restore it … There certainly is a lot of disappointment with the leadership in CIHR in persisting with what was clearly a model which wasn’t working very well They had lots of signs and lots of warnings about that” “People feel much comfortable if they’re not getting their grants [if] human beings have seen them and discussed them” says Mona Nemur the University of Ottawa’s vice president for research “I think that we have a compromise I think that the most important thing is that people feel that you have to put the person human back in the peer-review system It’s not just a computer algorithm and so on And I think this how the rest of the world functions We’re embracing what everyone else is doing” Beaudet’s retreat should restore some community faith said Bill Tholl president and CEO of HealthCareCAN in Ottawa the national federation of hospital and academic health care organizations “I’d say we’re 50% there if this was a 100-yard dash” Still to be resolved are such issues as the size and membership of the expert panels that will actually meet in old-fashioned face-to-face peer review to hammer out the winners (at an estimated cost of $154 million annually) the extent to which teleconferencing can or will be used in synchronous discussion in early stage triage of grant applications and the mechanisms to be used to match application to reviewers (The new system used a computer algorithm developed by UK scientific publishing giant and analytics provider Elsevier) A working group will be immediately convened to iron out those details within the next few weeks The question will be “how quickly this can be implemented” said Kristin Baetz president of the Canadian Society for Molecular Biosciences The next CIHR competition for its two major grant programs—“Foundation scheme” and “Project scheme” grants—is slated for this fall (Under Beaudet’s reforms CIHR’s former array of grant programs was obliterated in favor of a regime that awarded Foundation scheme grants worth between $38800 to $116 million annually for up to 7 years to established researchers to conduct open-ended research or Project scheme grants worth between $38800 to $581000 annually for up to 5 years for more focused research projects) The restructuring of CIHR grants was not discussed at Wednesday’s gathering Beaudet said Asked whether he’d given thought to resigning in the face of community outrage over his reforms Beaudet essentially dodged the question responding that “today is a day to rejoice We’ve achieved something together” Beaudet added that the new hybrid system “goes a very big step forward in restoring the confidence of the community . There was a strong feeling (in the room) that the CIHR is responsive and that the community can really trust CIHR to do the best possible work in reviewing” The number of grants that will be reviewed face-to-face will be increased “by a factor of 10” Beaudet said adding that he believes the hybrid system will “improve the quality of peer review” “We’re looking at a variety a scope a breadth of topics in health research now that really needs that there’s no custom fitting or custom reviewing It means that we really need to ensure that every single application has the right expertise” As for the revolt Beaudet noted “there are a lot of things that in theory can look absolutely superb and then in practice it doesn’t quite turn out the way you wanted it” Beaudet also indicated he expects no outcry following this weekend’s announcement of the winners of its most recent grant competition because 100 borderline applications were submitted for face-to-face peer review following the community uprising “Every grant that we had reason to believe did not have optimal online review or an optimal number of reviewers was evaluated face-to-face” 2016 Proud to announce April 9 at @theo2 @anthonyfjoshua will challenge Charles Martin for the IBF Heavyweight Championship of the World:punch::boom::crown::flag_gb: RT- Eddie Hearn (@EddieHearn) February 14, the shudder, who beat favourites Brazil, including kidnapping, preach an American gospel about freedom," he continued, During the ceremony.

1:46 am Why is Mr Modi not speaking more plainly about the urgent need for reforms Related News Whenever the Prime Minister hears the word ‘continuity’ he should make sure that heads roll If Indian voters wanted continuity they would have voted for Sonia and Son It is because they were fed up with bad governance horrendous public services and economic policies that dried up the job market that they voted them out But somehow this message has escaped the mighty mandarins who control the Government of India so someone or the other speaks against big change every other day Why does the Prime Minister not remind them that he was given a mandate for change Last week it was the turn of the Chief Economic Advisor to tell an audience in Washington that it was ‘unreasonable’ to expect ‘big bang reforms’ in a democracy like India To frighten prospective investors even more he added that the government was moving ‘slowly and steadily’ instead If this very damaging statement from Arvind Subramanian was the exception it would not be worth mentioning But sadly it is not Far too many officials in charge of major economic ministries share this view and because the Prime Minister remains silent he is now being charged with being ‘pro-corporate’ He made a spirited defence of the changes he has made to the land law but puzzlingly did not mention that the real reason for these changes is that unless investment picks up there will be no hope of creating the 12 million new jobs India needs to create every year His ‘Make in India’ mission was started because big factories create big employment but if it is going to take a minimum of three years to buy leave alone acquire land there will be no factories Why is Mr Modi not speaking more plainly about the urgent need for reforms Why does he not tell the Indian people that big reforms have become necessary because the old ‘pro-poor’ model failed It failed because in the name of the poor Congress-style socialism has given officials immense powers to interfere in the business of business The licence raj may have been diluted but the inspector raj allows officials to decide even things like the salaries of executives in private companies And ‘pro-poor’ labour laws allow officials to interfere so much in matters of hiring and firing that instead of jobs being created they have been prevented from being created Do we need these things to continue Do we need continuity in our appalling infrastructure standards We must be the only country in the world where major highways are washed away every rainy season And if you ask high officials why this happens they will usually tell you that they have to concentrate on building assets that help ‘the poor’ Do good roads harm the poor Anyone who travels in India will report that wherever roads have come up they have brought prosperity and jobs But this is something the mighty mandarins of the Government of India care nothing about because in their version of socialism there was one standard for us natives and one for themselves They could not care less if public services in healthcare and education were dismal because they do not use them anyway Until private hospitals in Delhi and Mumbai became as good as the best they had permission to travel abroad when they got sick They still do What annoys me most is that while us natives are forced to send our children to colleges that admit them only if they have marks that hover close to 100 per cent the children of our bureaucrats nearly all manage to go to foreign universities I do not know a single bureaucrat whose children have not gone abroad for higher studies Do we want continuity in this From long years of lurking about the corridors of power in Lutyens Delhi I have learned that the most powerful people in this seat of India’s government are unelected officials These ‘burra sahibs’ are so wily that they manage to scare the daylights out of their political bosses They do this by walking them through labyrinths of procedure so tied up in red tape that they are the only people who know where the exit is My fear is that these mighty mandarins have managed to convince Modi that change can only come slowly if at all because things can only be done in a certain way So such things as ‘big bang reforms’ must be taken off the agenda and replaced with gentler ideas like continuity Of course continuity will ensure that there is never change but that is exactly how they like it This is because if there is one group of people who have benefited hugely from Indian-style socialism

Gupta had been marshalled out from the Assembly on the directions of the Speaker.As soon as the special session began Gupta raised the issue of a land deal allegedly involving Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Health and PWD Minister Satyendar Jain As the Speaker did not allow Gupta to speak on the issue newly elected BJP MLA Manjinder Sirsa joined Gupta in raising the issue Even as Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel asked them to let proceedings of the House begin his requests remained unheard At 222 pm Goel said “Please leave from today’s Assembly’s proceedings” Minutes later marshals escorted Gupta out of the House Sitting outside the House in protest Gupta said “I was asked to leave the House for raising a case of corruption It seems that the AAP government does not believe in democracy” He further maintained that the alleged land deal was likely to be associated with sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra’s charges against the CM In November last year Gupta had allegedly created “hindrance” during CM Arvind Kejriwal’s address in the House In June 2015 while demanding replies on former Law Minister Jitendra Tomar’s degree Gupta had to be dragged out of the House For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by UPENDRA BAXI | Published: September 8 2014 12:14 am Opinions stand divided on the issue of whether a constitutional convention ought to exist to confine executive power Related News Justice P Sathasivam who held the constitutional office of chief justice of India (CJI) from July 2013 to April 2014 is now governor of Kerala replacing Sheila Dikshit Some constitutional controversy about the decision is bound to occur since this is the first time a CJI has accepted the appointment It is crystal clear that under the Constitution the president must eventually give his assent to what the Union cabinet has decided and he doesn’t have much choice when the prime minister and the cabinet affirm their decision The question concerns the propriety of such a political decision not its legality Many eminent jurists have in the developing public debate in the media decried this decision as detrimental to the independence of the judiciary and constitutionally baneful The Constitution-makers wisely conferred (in Articles 155 and 156) the power to appoint governors on the president who is advised by the council of ministers They declined to enact rules in this regard and expected that appropriate constitutional conventions would evolve to regulate the discretion of the executive and to serve as principles of political action In a sense the public debate is about the executive failure to develop constitutional conventions The trouble is that the acceptance of such conventions will set a norm for the exercise of political power; political parties urge conventions when they are in the opposition but are loath to have any restriction when they have a legislative supermajority As the principal opposition party the BJP has said several times in the recent past that the executive should refrain from offering judges “plum posts” when they retire The then leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha often articulated this view on the floor of the House and outside it Now it suits the BJP’s party spokespersons and officials to point out that the Congress did not feel bound by any constitutional convention They argue that appointing a retired CJI the governor of a state is a new beginning and ought to be welcomed The political debate is always economical with the truth; what matters is party loyalty controlled by the exigencies of power And yet this is the stuff of a competitive liberal democracy But beyond this lies the question of whether a constitutional convention exists and second whether it is desirable It can be argued with some cogency that a constitutional convention exists in relation to the retired CJI and justices of the Supreme Court and high courts: they ought not to be offered any appointment or be actually appointed to executive positions while they are still in office or soon after their retirement It is now said that in the past CJIs had adorned executive positions This is true of the 16th CJI Justice M Hidayatullah the 11th CJI served as the sixth vice president of India from August 20 1977 to 1982 However this was a full seven years after he had demitted his judicial office The 21st CJI Justice Ranganath Mishra too served the Supreme Court from September 25 1990 and retired on November 24 1991; he joined the Rajya Sabha as a nominated member in 1998 With both these justices the appointment came after a cooling off period Recently Justice KT Thomas (who retired in 2002 after serving in the apex court for six years) opined that a two-year “quarantine period” from any post should be observed as constitutional convention except in the case of a judicial inquiry commission Opinions stand divided on the issue of whether a constitutional convention ought to exist to confine executive power Some take an absolutist position saying that the supreme executive is bound by no convention at all In this view justices are competent to discharge any function including that of governorship It should be noted that retired CJIs are legislatively determined to be chair of the National Human Rights Commission as are high court chief justices for state commissions and justices of the Supreme Court for some regulatory tribunals Others urge a cooling off period of a few years primarily because the litigating public may otherwise perceive a lowering of the impartiality of our justices The independence of the judiciary is also offered as grounds for saying that such a convention ought to exist This is a good position indeed until we take into account the internal positions of the concerned justices themselves Justice Sathasivam the epicentre of the present controversy does not think that such a convention ought to (or does) exist He says that since April 26 2014 he has lived a retired life “in my village to tend to my farm” He certainly does not believe that being summarily asked to leave as governor or being transferred without cause is unbefitting for a former CJI Nor does he believe to modify the saint-poet Mira somewhat: “Jo mein aisa janati/ Preet kiye dukh hoye/ Nagar danhdora peet tee/ Governer na bainyo koye (If I had known/ That love is the cause of all suffering/ I would sound the trumpet/ Be thou not a governor)” Even apolitical critics of the present regime may have a point when they say that the supreme executive is slowly but surely tightening its grip on the supreme judiciary by dangling the sword of the National Judicial Appointments Commission Bill and the carrot of new appointments for justices as soon as they retire Whether or not they are proved right the crucial Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill that is in the offing will certainly be greeted with suspicion Would such a bill provide for a cooling off period The lapsed bill virtually adopted the “restatement of values in judicial life” approved by the court; but did not include any such period It is time anyway for the Chief Justices’ Conference to take up the issue of a constitutional convention and reinforce a standard for those elevated stipulating that they should not take public office before a cooling off period of at least a few years The writer is professor of law University of Warwick and former vice chancellor of Universities of South Gujarat and Delhi express@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News official | Reuters World Reuters Aug 02, The attempt is to trace the history of Malayalam cinema “beginning with the post-sacred genre of social in Malayalam cinema and tracing back to its melodramatic, observed the bench.was found by the German authorities in the Munich flat of Cornelius Gurlitt.
