Iran terror attacks: Donald Trump offers victims solace, but takes a swipe at Tehran

Iran terror attacks: Donald Trump offers victims solace, but takes a swipe at Tehran
Standard

Washington: President Donald Trump offered on Wednesday for victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran, suggesting that Tehran suffers from some blame, saying that “States that sponsor risk terrorism is victims of the damage being done by the promotion”.

Hours after the conciliar comments of his State Department, the president said in a statement in a paragraph that the afflicé United States and pray for the innocent victims of the aggression against the Iranian Parliament and the shrine of the Iranian revolutionary leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Which killed at least 12 people. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility. Tony added his advantage against Iran, that the USA. Has designated as the state sponsor of terrorism since 1984.

“We emphasize that the states that sponsor terrorism risk are victims of the evil they are promoting,” he said.

State Department spokesman Heather Nauert said the Is sending thoughts and prayers to the Iranians after the attacks.

“The depravity of terrorism does not take place in a peaceful and civilized world,” said M. Nauert, who said the United States expresses its condolences to the victims and their families.

The American Declaration of Solidarity with the Victims of the Attack is significant because of the deep mistrust between the United States and the United States. And Iran. The two countries do not maintain diplomatic relations, and Trump Directors emphasized the need to counter Iran’s influence.

Iran’s mistrust was evident Wednesday shortly after the ruling, Republicans, and Democrats in Congress have acted on a procedural vote to advance in a new round of sanctions against Iran including its elite revolutionary guards. The strong bipartisan vote was 92 to 7 years.

The bill would impose mandatory sanctions on those involved in Iran’s ballistic missile program and anyone who works with them. The measure would also apply sanctions against the Revolutionary Guards terrorists in the country and impose an arms embargo.

Some senators have called for a delay until next week of the planned voting earlier in light of the attacks in Iran.

“We are going to tell the Iranian people that if we have serious disagreements with them about a series of problems today when they are in mourning, when they have the shock of a terrorist attack, today is not the day of the future this legislation, “Said Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., Has also forced a delay, but Republicans and Democrats continue.

The bill is a “careful response to Iran’s ongoing aggression in the Middle East,” said Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J.

Last month, the Foreign Relations Committee endorsed the move despite concerns by former Secretary of State John Kerry and many Democrats who could ultimately lead to the failure of the Obama-negotiated nuclear deal.

Kerry warned lawmakers to “walk with caution” in seeking new sanctions against Iran following the re-election of President Hassan Rouhani to another four-year term. Rouhani is a moderate policy that scored a resounding victory on a hard-line opponent.

Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, the Republican chair of the committee and one of the promoters of the bill, said it recently considered secret information that helped explain Tehran’s support for terrorism and other destabilizing measures.

“It is surprising that Iran continues around the world,” said Corker, who invites his colleagues to address the threat posed by Iran.

In exchange for the termination of its nuclear program in Iran, the United States and other world powers have agreed to suspend the oil, trade and financial sanctions that have stifled the Iranian economy. As part of the multinational agreement in July 2015, Iran has also regained access to frozen assets abroad.

Presidential election on 17 July: Here’s how process to choose Pranab Mukherjee’s successor will work

Presidential election on 17 July: Here's how process to choose Pranab Mukherjee's successor will work
Standard

The Election Commission announced on Wednesday that if elections are needed to elect the next president of India, which will take place on July 17. The nomination process for the same will start from June 14 with the issuance of a notice; June 28 is the day of submission of applications, while candidates have until July 1 to delete their names. If there is a consensus of all parties in the election of the President, there can be no choice. The EC also said that if there was no consensus between the ruling NDA and the opposition parties, the number of serious candidates in the fray will be clear on the afternoon of July 1. The vote count will be held in New Delhi on July 20.

President Pranab Mukherjee will end on July 24.

NDTV reported that the BJP and its allies are able to make their choice after Prime Minister Narendra Modi has gained support from regional parties such as TRS, which offset the lack of votes the ruling coalition needed.

The names considered include cabinet ministers M Venkaiah Naidu, Sushma Swaraj, Thawar Chand Gehlot, and the governor of Jharkhand, Draupadi Murmu.

The report added that Congress President Sonia Gandhi has negotiated with other opposition parties to decide on a common candidate.

The process

The position of the President is constitutional, and the presidential election is governed by articles 54-59 of the Constitution.

Article 54 stipulates that the president will be elected by an electoral college. It is composed of elected members of the two chambers of parliament and the legislatures of each state. Therefore, all members of the central and state legislatures are part of the electoral college, except for the following: Appointment of the members of Parliament appointed members of the legislatures and members of the Legislative Council.

Article 58 of the Constitution establishes certain requirements that may become the President of India. To be eligible to become president, you must:

Being a citizen of India
Be over 35 years old
Be qualified to be a member of the Lok Sabha
You should not have the office benefit
The election itself is administered by the system of proportional representation by means of the single transferable vote. There are two things to understand:

– First, proportional representation: the value of the votes of individual members of the polling station also varies. For one of the members, it depends on the population of your state and the number of members elected to the State Legislature. The value is determined for each condition and varies from Uttar Pradesh (208) in Goa (8) according to a report in The Financial Express. For one of the members, it depends on the total value of the votes of all members and the number of elected members. Currently, the value is set to 708.

This year, a total of 4896 voters – 4 120 deputies and 776 deputies – are eligible to vote.

– Second, the system includes the preferential vote. This means that voters do not choose just the best candidate, but they also indicate their preference over others. Therefore, even if the first preference of a voter does not win, the rest of his newsletter influences the election.

This is done by voting fee system. To win, a candidate must obtain a certain number of votes, which is determined by the total number of valid votes cast. Therefore, for the 2017 presidential election, the winning candidate must obtain (4896/2) 1-2 449 votes. If a candidate does not reach this number, the one with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated.

RBI-government rift out in open: Panel refuses to cut rates, chief economist hits out

NEW doli / MUMBAI: Just a day after TOI delivered a report detailing the government’s disaster on the rigidity of the Reserve Bank of interest rate differences have been extended to the opening with the main economic advisor Arvind Subramanian react To the decision of the Monetary Policy Committee Wednesday morning Consider rate + by using the unusual measure of issuing a statement in favor of rate reduction.
The first public indication of the tension between the central bank and the Ministry of Finance came during the press conference of the governor of the RBI, where Urjit Patel revealed that MPC members had denied a request for a meeting by the Ministry of Finance. “The meeting did not take place. All members of the MPC have rejected the request of the Ministry of Finance for a meeting,” Patel said, in response to a question about whether the compromise with the affected government independence panel.
On Wednesday afternoon, Subramanian has published what he calls a “plausible alternative macroeconomic assessment,” which ended by saying, “Lately, current and potential economic conditions have rarely justified a substantial easing of monetary policy,” which means lower rates of interest.
+ In its Tuesday TOI report said that “an influential sector in the Government believes that the RBI was indifferent to its concern about the persistence of high-interest rates and reluctant to take advantage of that offered by a comfortable tax situation room and the inflation “.
Subramanian said: “Not only general inflation was well below target and well in advance, but core inflation has also plummeted.” He emphasized the wide divergence between the MPC inflation outlook and the actual level of inflation, which lies within the comfort zone of the RBI from 2 to 6%. “Mistakes in inflation projections were systematically important and one-sided in overestimating inflation,” he added.
He drew attention to the economic crisis since last July, which has been reflected in recent data, including the slowdown in demand for personal loans.
During the MPC meeting, Ravindra H Dholakia, a professor at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, has emerged as a dissident, while the other five members voted to consider rates. Even in the first meetings of the commission, Dholakia became more cautious in comparison with other members. The comments will be published on June 21, when RBI publishes the minutes of the MPC meeting. “The vote strongly suggests that it was taken from waiting and observing approach. The diversity of opinions contained in the MPC constitution has meant that we voted was not unanimous,” Patel said.
A deviation marked unanimously was observed that the previous decisions of the MPC. Dholakia is one of three government panelists, the others are Chetan Ghate, a professor at the Indian Institute of Statistics and Pami Dua, director of the Delhi School of Economics (DSE). Although the government has urged RBI to attract attention, MPC has refused to move, not only to maintain rates, but also to respect its neutral position. The RBI also seems to have opted not to exceed inflation figures, saying that moderation in inflation, excluding food and fuel, “may be transient because of its sub-backs membership in a situation of rising growth Rural wages and high consumer demand “.
Subramanian argued that “real interest rates are tight and rising, at a time of low inflation and slowing growth … appreciation of the real exchange rate makes the real conditions of monetary policy even stronger.”

‘I Expect Loyalty,’ Trump Told Comey, According To Written Testimony

'I Expect Loyalty,' Trump Told Comey, According To Written Testimony

WASHINGTON: FBI Director James Comey said President Donald Trump told him at the White House: “I need loyalty, I expect loyalty” in his private conversation at the White House dinner in January, according to written comments Comey offer an acute view of his testimony Thursday in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

In seven noteworthy pages of prepared testimony, Comey describes a loyalty-obsessed president and publicly sketched his name amid an FBI investigation of his associates and the growing discomfort of the FBI’s director with the nature of the petitions being presented to him by his talks Private partnerships.

Since Comey’s departure last month, the president denied that he asked an FBI loyalty director during a Justice Department investigation into possible coordination between Trump Associates and Russian agents. Written Supportive Comments Comey Another Trump Claim – The FBI Director has repeatedly assured the President that he was not personally under investigation.

But in general, the testimony of Comey Trump presents as CEO that made the director of the FBI deeply uncomfortable in nine separate private talks, from his first meeting in early January Trump before being sworn in his position. In this conversation, Comey warned the president-elect of a folder that was circulating with baseless accusations against him and his advisers.

The details described by Comey are likely to further fuel the debate over the fact that the president may have tried to obstruct justice by pushing the FBI director over the sensitive investigation.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., Who heads the Senate probe over Russia’s possible cooperation with Trump’s partners, said he was not alarmed by the Comey account.

“I do not think it is a mistake to ask the faithful to anybody in administration,” Burr said. “I do not think I read, there was no crime.”

Comey wrote with almost novelistic details in his interactions with the president, who describes a call on January 27, around lunchtime, inviting him to dinner.

“It was not clear from the conversation that the other was going to be at dinner, although he assumed there would be others,” Comey said. “It turned out to be just the two of us, sitting at a small oval table in the middle of the green room.” Two naval administrators were waiting for us, just entering the room to serve food and drinks. ”

The president began the conversation, Comey wrote, asking him if he wanted to stay as director of the FBI, “which struck me as strange because he had already told me twice in previous conversations that he expected me to stay again, and I was sure he wanted to.

The president responded, according to Comey, many people wanted to work and “he would understand if he wanted to retire.”

Comey’s instinct, he wrote, was stage and conversation “meant that dinner was at least in part, an effort that I ask of my work and creates a kind of employer relationship.” I was very concerned, given the state traditionally Independent of the FBI in the executive branch “.

The Senate Intelligence Committee on June 7 issued a written statement that former FBI Director James B. Comey read when he appears before the Senate on June 8. This is what you need to know. (Video: Bastien Inzaurralde / Photo: Matt McClain / The Washington Post)

The President made loyalty request.

“I do not move, speak or change facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed,” Comey wrote. “I just looked in silence.” The conversation continued but returned to the subject near the end of our dinner. ”

When he turns to the subject of fidelity, Comey said he replied, “You will always get honesty from me.”

Comey said that once before Trump’s inauguration, and again at dinner in January, he assured the president that he was not personally under investigation. He also told the president that he had shared this information with the leaders of Congress.

In his letter pulling Comey, Trump wrote that three times Comey had assured that it was not investigated. After the shooting, the defenders have publicly questioned Comey

Bodies, Wreckage Of Myanmar Military Plane Found In Sea

Bodies, Wreckage Of Myanmar Military Plane Found In Sea

Yangon, Myanmar: Myanmar military said Thursday it found the remains of a plane in the Andaman Sea, which disappeared with 120 people aboard, with several bodies.

A naval research boat that ran the waves found the body of a man, a woman and a child and luggage, safety vests and the tires are suspected to be from the plane wheel.

“We found the plane and some bodies this morning around 8:25 am (0155 GMT),” a spokesman for the military intelligence team told AFP.

The commander’s office confirmed that the remains had been found on the Launglon coast in southern Myanmar Thursday morning.

Nine warships and three air force planes had been deployed in a desperate search for the plane, which disappeared Wednesday afternoon during the flight from the southern city of Myeik to Yangon the commercial heart of Myanmar.

There were conflicting reports on the number of people on board, but in the latest update, the military said the plane carried a total of 122 people.

More than half of the passengers were from military families, including 15 children and 35 soldiers and 14 crew members, the army chief’s office said in a statement.

Some travel for medical examinations or to go to school in Yangon.

The search and rescue efforts continued Thursday morning as the passenger parents prepared for the worst.

Wai Lin Aung said his mother was on the flight after visiting his sister, who is married to a soldier based in Myeik.

“The whole family is very sad and we are waiting for news,” he told AFP.

It is the monsoon season in Myanmar, but there was no storm alert in the area at that time.

The commander’s office said the plane loses contact with air traffic control at 13.35 (07:05 GMT) Wednesday, about half an hour after takeoff.

The Myanmar army captain of the four turboprop engines Shaanxi Y-8 as Lieutenant Colonel Chan Nyein, who said he had more than 3000 hours of designated flight experience.

The plane was purchased in March 2016 and had a total of 809 flight hours.

The remains were found in the Andaman Sea, north of the last known location of Flight 370 from Malaysia Airlines.

The plane disappeared in March 2014 on the way from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, but no remains were found.

Myanmar’s military fleet has seen a recent history of aviation accidents.

A group of five people was killed when an Air Force plane broke quickly after taking off from the capital Naypyidaw in February last year.

Three army officers also died in June when their Mi-2 helicopter crashed on a hill and exploded in the southern center of Bago.

Treat Madhya Pradesh farmers’ protest with urgency; a contagion could deepen the crisis

Treat Madhya Pradesh farmers' protest with urgency; a contagion could deepen the crisis
Standard

The current food crisis is the result of our inability to solve the problems related to agriculture that occur every time the monsoon fails – where we choose to forget gravity once a correction occurs in the weather conditions. With almost 60 to 70 percent of kharif production dependent on rainfall, it is not surprising that farmers face challenges when the monsoon is below normal.

The problems of agriculture are numerous and begin from the time of planting to delivery to the market. These include the availability of high-quality seeds, inputs such as water and fertilizer, pre-harvest and post-harvest finance levels, freight logistics, and finally the marketing where they are sold to consumers. The fact that agriculture is disorganized means that there are several levels of intermediaries that can range to 6-8 depending on crop and location. Gaps in all parts of the value chain tend to be exacerbated when farmers’ incomes are affected without declining. This is well known, but it hit the headlines when there are debates about exceptions to the loan.

The development of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh highlight these problems. Loan waivers are the latest controversy on the farm, especially during the upcoming elections where it was a major win point. This was followed in Maharashtra and will continue to expand to other states as well. The problem is double disclaimers. The first is that if it is not invoked, the whole community suffers, creating social problems, including farmers’ suicides. Moreover, eliminating loans, creating a moral hazard in those dealing with your debt are penalized and encouraged not to repay the loans in the future. Banks have always been against such schemes, for this reason, because the probability of non-performing assets (NPA) increase as farmers choose to faint payments. At present, with a high level of NPA, banks are not able to forgive such loans, but the question raised is whether corporate borrowing can be adjusted, why non-farm loans in which the reasons are more convincing . The route should be the government such provisions should be made in the budget. This becomes an enigma for states because agriculture is a state issue and it is unlikely that the central finance the cost of the Union budget. States have a problem in their hands because of the fiscal responsibility and budget management rules in 2003 (FRBMA) that limit the level of deficit or tax debt they can undertake. The ratio is set at 3 percent of gross domestic product (GSDP) and, therefore, if states are working close to this number, they will not extend this benefit. This is the puzzle that explains part of the controversy that arose in Maharashtra, where farmers require such exceptions. The other problem that is very relevant again in relation to farmers’ incomes. It was noted that agricultural prices tend to be unstable when increased and decreased depending on supplies. While higher prices are useful when accident prices cause distress when income decreases.

Why Old-Timey Jobs Are Hot Again

Why Old-Timey Jobs Are Hot Again
Standard

Walk in parts of Brooklyn, Portland and Pittsburgh, and find elegant cocktails, barbers and occasional butchers, with young college graduates. To facilitate the segment of today’s urban economy, jobs were once again reckoned the state of semi-annual joblessness in occupations of glamor, says sociologist Richard Ocejo.

In his new book, “Masters of Art: Old Jobs in the New Urban Economy,” M. Ocejo examines the forces driving the revival of professions as a butcher and waiter among the young urban middle class. A similar dynamic works with a handful of other jobs, including craft beer, the bookbinder, furniture maker and fishmonger.

The Department of Labor states that between 2014 and 2024, the number of waiters and hairdressers in the United States will increase by 10 percent. 100, while butchers will see an increase of 5 percent. 100, compared to a 7% job growth for professions in the same period. The average salary for these jobs was less than $ 30,000 per year in 2016.

Millennia are drawn to these professions, in part as a reaction to “the ephemeral of the digital age,” says Ocejo, a professor of sociology at John Jay University of Criminal Justice and the City University of New York Graduate Center.

Like many of today’s most publicized jobs in areas such as information technology and financial services, these trades “are based on the use of hands, with real tools and materials, to provide a specific product Tangible, “he said.

To attract young people with college degrees and other options in the job market, jobs usually have an element of performance, according to M. Ocejo. In most of the Masters of Craft races, workers interact closely with clients, often in a public context, where their skills and knowledge can be admired. Therefore, it is unlikely that certain manual positions like the electrician and the plumber, experiencing the same “revaluation,” he said.

Unlike real estate gentrification, where the arrival of wealthier people moves low-income residents into a neighborhood urbanites do not usually move workers into more established companies in the same industry, said M. Ocejo.
Whole animal fashion of a butcher does not grow the local boucherier said, as it is likely “closed long ago, when the Italians moved.” And it does not harm halal butchers in any neighborhood. These shops serve a different clientele.

“They have created a niche that did not exist before, and operate in parallel but very, very separate ways” with preexisting companies, said M. Ocejo.

But aesthetics play a key role in the ideal of craftsmanship: waiters with leagues and handlebar mustaches tattooed butchers carving an unusual cut of meat-Mr. Ocejo said that jobs tend to attract people from similar cultural backgrounds, creating a barrier to others.

“It’s very difficult, if you come from a working class or a minority to get one of these jobs, which would give you higher salaries, opportunities for contacts and a more interesting job,” he said. “It’s a challenge for these companies to be more inclusive and not just hire people like themselves or part of their social network.”
