We will now be heard thanks to Supreme Court: BCCI state bodies

first_imgWe will now be heard thanks to Supreme Court: BCCI state bodiesBCCI state associations felt their issues will finally be heard and addressed after Supreme Court appointed senior advocate PS Narasimha as the mediator in the case.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiMarch 14, 2019UPDATED: March 14, 2019 20:24 IST Supreme Court appointed senior advocate PS Narasimha to mediate matter between BCCI and their state associations. (Getty Images)With the Supreme Court asking amicus curiae P.S. Narasimha to look into the issues faced by the state associations of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday, the bench of Justices S.A. Bobde and A.M. Sapre have set the ball rolling. While the bench is looking at a quick disposal of the BCCI matter, the state bodies believe that their grievances will finally be addressed.Speaking to IANS, a senior state association official said that the move by the bench would finally see correct decisions being made as the SC-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had been affected by incorrect advice that led to further conflict than reaching a resolution.”The grievances of the state associations are diverse, but most flow from a few decisions of the CoA taken prior to the induction of Lt. Col Thodge into the committee. The atmosphere of positivity that has descended upon this litigation promises a quick resolution since the CoA had been plagued by incorrect advice. The introduction of the new amicus curiae has lent an air of pragmatism to the litigation. This is the way forward for a justiciable resolution,” he said.While there have been quite a few issues that have bothered the state bodies, one of the major issues as per one of the state association officials is the drafting of the new constitution which isn’t in accordance with the draft constitution as proposed by the Lodha panel.”The first and foremost being the decision of the CoA to file a draft constitution before the SC which was not in accordance with Justice Lodha’s draft constitution as approved by the court. The SC had specifically stated that the draft constitution to be submitted was to be strictly in accordance with the constitution as proposed by Justice Lodha and accepted by the Supreme Court. So first, the deviations in the CoA’s draft constitution are the epicenter of most of the grievances,” he said.advertisementEchoing the sentiments, another state association official said that the CoA’s interpretation of the court’s order for the constitution of the state bodies to be a “mirror” image of the BCCI constitution further complicated matters.”The order dated August 9 wherein the state associations were required to undertake amendments to their constitutions on ‘similar lines’ has been interpreted in a somewhat draconian manner by the CoA. It would appear to mean that the constitutions ought to be mirror images of the BCCI constitution when the BCCI constitution itself requires the state associations to fulfill a criteria clearly mentioned in the constitution, some parts of which are also under challenge as violative of Article 19(1)(c) of the Constitution,” the official explained.Another state association official also pointed at the drying up of funds and said that it was an important area that needs immediate attention as the lack of funds is a deterrent for the smooth organization of cricket matches. “The restriction on the flow of the associations’ own funds had all but brought the development of the game of cricket at the grassroots level to a standstill and this empathetic view will potentially bring an end to this unfortunate stalemate,” he said.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Yamuna water starts receding water still above danger mark

first_imgNew Delhi: The water level of the Yamuna started receding on Wednesday, but the river still continues to flow above the danger mark, an official said.According to the Flood Control Room, the water level came down to 206.50 metres at 5 pm from 206.60 metres at 2 pm. “The water level is likely to recede further as Haryana has so far not released water from the Hathnikund barrage in large quantity,” a government official said. At 4 pm, only 10,000 cusec water was released from the Hathnikund barrage.

Due to inundation of low-lying areas, over 15,000 people living in Yamuna floodplains have been shifted to tents set up by various government agencies, officials said. Movement of trains over the old Yamuna bridge (‘Lohe wala Pul’) was temporarily suspended on Tuesday night and the trains were diverted via New Delhi railway station, a Northern Railways spokesperson said. Authorities in Delhi have already shut the Lohewala Pul on the Yamuna for traffic. The Northern Railway has restricted the speed of trains on the Yamuna bridge to 20 kmph. If the water level crosses 206.40 metre, movement of trains on the bridge will be stopped, a railway spokesperson said.

The Chief Minister personally interacted with flood affected families being housed in tents set up by the Delhi government. The arrangements for tents, food and water, medicines were found to be satisfactory. The river flows through six districts of Delhi whose low-lying areas are prone to flooding. The administration has deployed 30 boats to prevent accidental drowning. The river flows through six districts of Delhi whose low-lying areas are prone to flooding.

UN launches aid appeal to stem starvation facing millions in Horn of

Responding to widespread losses of staple crops in countries of the Horn of Africa, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today launched an urgent appeal to provide emergency relief aid to the region, where more than 12 million people are threatened with starvation in the coming months.WFP Executive Director James Morris said over 2 million people in Eritrea, or about 60 per cent of the country’s population, will be affected by drought, while about 10 million people will need food aid in neighbouring Ethiopia.He also warned that if the October rains stop suddenly, up to 14 million Ethiopians will require urgent assistance.“These figures are large and dramatic and the international community should take notice,” Mr. Morris said. “If donors respond quickly, we can help avoid an immense human tragedy there.”He said that without immediate help, a “devastating wave of human suffering and death” could come as early as next year. read more

Des mouches génétiquement modifiées ont vu leur vie sallonger de 25

first_imgDes mouches génétiquement modifiées ont vu leur vie s’allonger de 25%Selon une nouvelle recherche, la manipulation d’un seul gène impliqué dans la maladie de Parkinson aurait permis d’allonger la vie de mouches drosophiles de 25%. Cette découverte pourrait permettre de mieux comprendre le fonctionnement de certaines maladies et du vieillissement chez l’humain.Depuis des années, de nombreuses études sont menées pour percer les mystères du vieillissement et mieux en comprendre les mécanismes. Le but : trouver un jour un moyen de ralentir le processus voire de le stopper. Si les scientifiques n’en sont pas encore arrivés là, une nouvelle étude publiée lundi aux Etats-Unis apporte un nouvel éclairage. Au cours de ces travaux, les scientifiques ont manipulé un gène appelé parkin car il est impliqué dans la maladie de Parkinson, chez des mouches drosophiles. Ils auraient alors constaté que ceci a eu pour effet d’allonger la vie des spécimens modifiés de 25%. Une découverte qui révèle de nouvelles informations sur le mécanisme moléculaire qui lie le vieillissement et le risque accru de développer des maladies neurodégénératives. Grâce à leur, les chercheurs ont constaté que parkin jouait deux rôles vitaux. D’une part il détecte les protéines endommagées pour que les cellules les éliminent avant qu’elles ne deviennent toxiques. D’autre part, il est important pour disposer de la mitochondrie (générateur de l’énergie des cellules) abîmée. En travaillant sur ce gène de façon à augmenter son niveau chez des mouches drosophiles, les scientifiques ont ainsi remarqué que la longévité des insectes était augmentée alors que ceux-ci vivent normalement moins de deux mois.Retarder l’apparition de maladies liées à l’âge chez l’homme ? À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ? “En augmentant seulement les niveaux du gène parkin, ces mouches vivent nettement plus longtemps, tout en restant en bonne santé, actives et fertiles,” explique Anil Rana qui fait partie de l’équipe de recherche publiant ses travaux dans les Comptes rendus de l’Académie américaine des sciences (PNAS). Aujourd’hui, les scientifiques espèrent donc poursuivre leurs recherches pour savoir quel effet aurait une telle modification chez l’homme. Si la découverte s’avère transposable chez l’humain, cette découverte pourrait mener à la mise au point de traitements permettant d’accroître l’activité du gène parkin afin de retarder l’apparition et la progression de la maladie de Parkinson et d’autres pathologies liées à l’âge, estiment ainsi les biologistes.Le 8 mai 2013 à 09:51 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

One year in Metoo gaining momentum worldwide

first_imgHollywood actresses Ashley Judd’s accusation against producer Harvey Weinstein sparked the surge of voices using the hashtag #Metoo a year ago. Reuters File PhotoFrom Hollywood to Bollywood, the #MeToo movement is making its mark around the globe since rising a year ago, with companies, politicians and charities caught up in the battle against sexual harassment of women.With the behavior of politicians likely to take center stage in pending US elections, #MeToo supporters have declared the movement a sweeping transformation permanently altering the treatment of women – though some suggest it has gone too far.The movement is newly taking hold in India, where one Bollywood actress’s complaint of sexual misconduct sparked an outpouring of support.Over the past week, women have flooded social media with their experiences of harassment and sexual violence, with senior figures in entertainment and the media and a government minister under scrutiny.Elsewhere, a Chinese university professor was fired after allegations of harassment and, in such conservative societies as Indonesia and Pakistan, women have been speaking out about sexual violence.”We are in a new era,” said Ashley Judd, one of the actresses whose accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein sparked the surge of voices using the hashtag #Metoo a year ago.The revelations of sexual misconduct that started in Hollywood spread across workplaces, governments and campuses, spawning investigations and toppling hundreds of high-profile men from positions of power around the world.But while #MeToo has opened up discussions that may have long been kept under wraps or left unaddressed, some have warned it may be going too far.The movement lacks nuance, some say, noting not all men accused of misconduct need to be treated with the same broad brush as that used in the case of Weinstein, who stands accused of sexual assault – charges he denies.Bollywood actress Tanushree Dutta’s harassment accusations against Nana Patekar rocked the Bollywood in #Meetoo campaign. Photo: ReutersOthers caution #Metoo will lead to women being locked out of business opportunities by men wary of being falsely accused of misconduct.Actress Catherine Deneuve famously denounced #Metoo as puritanism gone too far, and U.S. first lady Melania Trump this week said she supported women speaking out, but that they need to have hard evidence to back their claims.Her comments followed the recent bruising battle over US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whose confirmation proceedings exploded in controversy when a California professor claimed he sexually assaulted her in 1982.Kavanaugh heatedly denied the allegations, his supporters argued the professor had no evidence and the Senate approved his appointment, marking a victory for Trump and locking in a conservative majority on the nation’s highest court.”We have only to look back at … the hearings with Judge Kavanaugh to recognise that the world is not in a great place for women,” Lisa Borders, incoming president and chief executive of Time’s Up, told reporters this week.’NO END IN SIGHT’The legal defense arm of Time’s Up, an organization launched in January to battle sexual harassment in workplaces, said it has fielded calls from more than 3,500 women and men.New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, who wrote some of the first articles about Weinstein a year ago, said in a recent Times editorial that “this discussion over harassment and assault has no end in sight”.”Perhaps it is time to start thinking of this less as a news story than as a permanent new element of our lives,” they wrote.The role of #Metoo is expected to be major in the 6 November elections, when voters choose a third of US Senators, all 435 members of the House of Representatives and dozens of state governors.The mid-term elections are seen as a referendum on the policies of president Donald Trump, and opposition Democrats hope to gain control of the lower House and gain seats in the Senate, both now controlled by Trump’s Republican Party.”We’re going to have a lot more feminists sitting in those seats,” Toni Van Pelt, president of the National Organization for Women, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.”Women understand we have to have women’s voices sitting at the table or we’re going to continue to be disrespected and treated as if we don’t count and as second-class citizens by the old white men that are in office right now,” she said.More than 42,000 women interested in running for office have contacted Emily’s List, an advocacy group supporting female candidates, since Trump was elected in 2016.In the two years prior, 920 women contacted the group, said a spokeswoman.Research shows a majority of US voters see sexual harassment as a serious problem, said Amanda Hunter, spokeswoman for the Barbara Lee Family Foundation, which conducts research and promotes women for political office.Campaign messages criticising or belittling #Metoo elicited negative responses from voters in the foundation’s research, she added.”#Metoo really changed the national conversation,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.last_img read more

Modi’s failure to address any of the major concerns of the farmers at his Malout rally on Wednesdaysaying that Modi missed an opportunity to make some major announcements for the farmers Singh also accused the Shiromani Akali Dal of "betraying Punjab" by inviting Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar to attend the rally File photo of Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh Twitter@@capt_amarinder "The distressed farmers who had gathered to hear Modi found no succour for their problems in his long speech which was high on fluff and short of substance" Singh said On Wednesday Modi visited Malout town around 275 kilometres from Chandigarh to address a "thanksgiving rally" organised by BJP ally Shiromani Akali Dal in the wake of the "biggest hike in MSP for paddy" announced by the Modi government last week The Punjab chief minister said he was shocked over the fact that Modi failed to even mention the farmer suicides and debts or even the Swaminathan committee’s report "If he really wanted to thank the Punjab farmers for contributing to the nation’s Green Revolution and for continuing to feed millions of Indians day after day Modi should have come out with some concrete announcements on the critical issues of farm loan waiver and total implementation of the Swaminathan report" Singh said Singh who heads the Congress government in agrarian Punjab said the rally turned out to be a "sorry spectacle for the farmers who had braved sweltering heat in the hope of some concrete announcements from the prime minister" "Instead Modi’s speech turned out to be an insipid affair focused on tom-tomming of his government’s four-year rule which has been a complete failure on all counts" Singh said The chief minister also said it was unfortunate that Modi had let go of a major opportunity to address the serious concerns of the farming community The Punjab chief minister also flayed the SAD for "betraying" Punjab by letting Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar to participate in the rally in Muktsar district "Considering Khattar’s stand on the SYL (Sutlej-Yamuna Link Canal) and Punjab waters the Akalis should not have let him be a part of the rally in the first place or should have used the opportunity to corner him over these important issues which are vital to the interest of Punjab and its farmers" Amarinder Singh said The Prime Minister had last week hailed the Union Cabinet’s decision to give MSP of 15 times on the input cost to farmers as "historic" He also asserted that his government will continue to take steps for the welfare of the farming community including doubling the income of farmers by 2022 However Singh dismissed the MSP hike announced by the Centre as "nothing more than a cosmetic measure" adding that it does not address the core concerns of the farming community Farmers from Punjab Haryana and Rajasthan participated in the rally as Malout town in south-west Punjab’s Muktsar district lies close to the border of all three states On Wednesday farmers from various organisations also protested and showed black flags as Modi arrived in Malout Meanwhile Congress state chief Sunil Jakhar has questioned the absence of former revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia from the Malout rally according to The Indian Express said He said “The Prime Minister has made a failed attempt to woo the farmers of three states Empty chairs in the rally speak volume of the fact that Akali-BJP alliance has lost its credibility among the masses” Jakhar in his statement lashed out at Modi for not making any announcement for celebrations of 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev the report added With inputs from IANS Guwahati: Representatives of organisations who had called a 12-hour Assam bandh on

Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is likely to submit its reportin Parliament in the Winter Session However the Assam government has yet to make its stand clear on the bill" said Gogoi The bill seeks to grant citizenship to non-Muslims from Bangladesh Pakistan and Afghanistan drawing opposition from several organisations in Assam Gogoi said representatives of the agitating organisations also plan to meet legislators of the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) to know the party’s position over the issue The AGP is a member of the BJP-led coalition government in Assam With the fate of the bill up in the air lawmakers seem content to let those folks go without enough food The Senate tentatively has approved a $4 billion reduction in funding for food stamps formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program In September the House passed a bill that slashes 10 times as much Both courses of action are unconscionableRather than shredding the food stamp program Congress must bolster its funding That’s the only way to ensure that all Americans including the 50 million who struggle to get enough to eat can enjoy what should be a right in this country — freedom from hungerFor 40 years food stamps have been an integral part of the federal Farm Bill SNAP’s inclusion represents a frank acknowledgment that too many Americans go hungry in spite of the huge bounty our farms produceBut in July for the first time the House turned its back on those in need and stripped food stamps entirely from the billThe chamber’s leaders promised to deal with SNAP separately But they don’t mean to do any favors for the nearly 47 million Americans who get critical assistance from SNAPThe House’s recent approval of $40 billion in cuts to food stamps is double the $20 billion reduction it sought back in JuneThe Center on Budget and Policy Priorities analyzed both proposals: $20 billion worth of cuts would kick nearly two million Americans out of SNAP; the newly approved cut of $40 billion will turn away as many as six millionDefenders of the cuts claim that they are trying to preserve the program for "families who truly need help"But there are many more people who "truly need help" than SNAP presently reaches Indeed we should be doing more to eliminate hunger in America — not lessAccording to the US Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service nearly 50 million Americans live in food-insecure households "unable to afford sufficient food for themselves and their families" These households include more than 16 million childrenWorse the food insecurity crisis is growing From 2007 through 2011 the number of people unable to afford adequate food increased by more than 10 million Those living in food insecurity now represent the highest share of the population since the agency began tracking in 1995 In the wealthiest country in the world such widespread hunger is unacceptableIt was also unacceptable more than 70 years ago when President Franklin Roosevelt delivered his historic "Four Freedoms" address to Congress asserting that Americans had a right to "freedom from want" He understood that a lack of access to basic nutrition undermines a person’s ability to enjoy other fundamental rightsIt’s a scandal that our lawmakers have done so little since then to make good on that promise of "freedom from want"No country is better equipped to guarantee its
