Arun Jaitley just scored a self-goal by admitting economy wasn’t healthy when note ban was launched

“What do you think is clear is not very clear,” said Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, a reporter for a journalist in Delhi, asked Thursday to take stock of the performance of the three-year government modi . The reporter asked about the impact of the demonetization of GDP, citing the sharp drop (6.1 percent) in the January-March quarter. Jaitley played down the impact of demonetization by saying that it was not the main reason for the economic slowdown.

“There are several factors that contribute to GDP.There has been an impact on growth due to other factors, even before demonetization.” A particular factor that you mention (sic), “said Jaitley Government disturbing movement defense announced on November 8. Although Jaitley is already only a part of his argument is weak due to figures January-March quarter, it is clear that demonetization left much damage to the economy. A slowdown in areas dependent on money, such as construction, commerce, hotels, financial services and real estate, shows.

With the exception of public spending and agricultural growth, all other key components of GDP were reduced. Therefore, Jaitley, at best, skillfully sidestepped the question about the impact of banning growth notes rather than responding to the facts.

But what is more interesting part of Jaitley’s statement that there was a decline in the economy before the demonetization due to several factors. This directly contradicts the purpose of Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he told Parliament in February of this year that demonetization had been made since the economy was strong at the time. Modi uses the analogy that an operation can be performed only on a healthy body.

“Given that the economy was in good condition, the demonetization time was the best,” Modi said at Lok Sabha during his response to the thanksgiving motion under President Pranab Mukherjee (see report here). “When you can undergo an operation? When the body is healthy.” The economy has it right and so our decision was made at the right time, “said Mr. Modi. Now Jaitley admitted that the economy is already facing a slowdown due to multiple factors, even before the demonetization clash contradicts Modi’s logic.

But Jaitley is right to say that 7-8 percent growth is quite good for India in an environment where the world is facing an economic downturn. “I think in the current situation of the world, growth of 7-8 percent is quite reasonable,” the FM said. In addition, when the impact of all pro-growth reform policies takes place, there will undoubtedly be beneficial results in the economy, Jaitley said.

Certainly, the three years of the Modi government’s mandate clearly succeeded in pushing for reform with the launch of the reform process regarding the tax on goods and services (GST), bankruptcy code, failed commercial loans and Most will rationalize subsidies. Clearly, this government has improved the UPA regime in terms of proactive reforms and changes in the role of government offices. In addition, within the three years of Modi’s rule of government, he created a good image without major instances of corruption of the central ministers and the government has largely maintained its promise to comply with the reform process

But the government must also face difficult challenges and areas where it could not be better. In the press, Jaitley seemed to hear of “jobless growth,” saying that jobs can only be created in the economic structure. But this government will make a mistake if it violates the unemployment problem and quickly to create more employment opportunities for millions of workers enter the country’s workforce every month.
Earlier this year, the rating agency Crisil said that more than 1.5 million people enter the job market every month and that the rapid adoption of automation that reduces dependence on work only exacerbates the situation. The unemployment rate in the country was 4.9% in 2013, 4.7% in 2012 and 3.8% in 2011. In terms of planned caste, the unemployment rate was 3.1% in 2011, Which has now increased to 5%. This means that although there has been a steady increase in unemployment since 2011.

Hawaii’s most popular coral reefs are in big trouble

Hawaii’s most popular coral reefs are in big trouble

On October 8, 2015, the Cubs have advanced to the national division final for the first time since 2003; South Carolina, still drowning after the historic flood has surpassed the state with more than 16.6 inches of water in less than a day, relied for even more rain; And the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of that third global coral bleaching event, citing global ocean temperatures warmer than usual. This event, according to a study published this week in the peerj newspaper, reefs all over Hawaii’s number one tourist destination Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve devastated. Researchers found that 47% of the largest and most extensive dive paradise in the reefs of blinded areas. A little less than 10 percent of the corals in Hanauma Bay are dead.

Corals are animals often mistaken for minerals, because of their skeletons, the structure of the rock and its still likely to slow down growth. And somewhat confused, these creatures greet vegetables. The symbiotic algae that live inside the corals, giving them their colorful cast and availability for the removal of rust and the waste they need.
But when corals are exposed to too hot or otherwise toxic water, they expel the symbiotic algae, which leads to a white colouration known as bleaching. Bleaching does not make it less attractive for coral, which makes them more susceptible to death and disease. Severe bleaching can kill and destroy coral reefs (reef are essentially individual coral colonies) leaving behind a bleached bone cemetery. Although coral reefs constitute less than one percent of the marine environment, they are home to 25 percent of marine life.
Global whitening events such as those investigators claim to have injured Hanauma Bay are very rare: the first documented occurred in 1998, the second in 2010, and climate change is considered the prime mover. The damage is not only limited to Hawaii, either: after two years of whitening back-to-back in 2016 and in 2017, 50% of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef in the world, bleached.

“There were no major whitening events known to science until 1983,” says study author Ku’ulei Rodgers, a researcher at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology at the University of Hawaii. Before the whitening events were local and not regional, it did not reflect the whole. Rodgers joined the study of Paul Jokiel, who created the first general monitoring of the coral reef program in Hawaii, but died in 2016. “In Hawaii, we had a whitening event in 1996 and the corals recovered,” said M. Rodgers. “Unlike many places in the world, we did very well until 2014.”

But the bleached reefs in 2014, and again in 2015.
“What we wanted to see [in this study] is that the differences are in one place and between sites,” Rodgers said. “In the Bay of Hanauma, we wanted to characterize the different currents and see if whitening and mortality were different in different areas.” Some sectors have seen a lot of human traffic by swimmers and divers, but distant quadrants were generally intact which did they help survive?
To understand how the warming affected the reef around Hanauma Bay, the researchers divided the bay into four quadrants and recorded the water temperatures every fifteen minutes from June 2015 to January 2016. Water models also followed the models Which circulates to better understand how ocean currents were involved in money laundering.
“We have found that human pressures have not played a role in money laundering,” Rodgers said. “Bleaching was in these two areas.”

AAP Hackathon For Vote Machines (EVMs) On Same Day As Election Commission

NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal held on Saturday an EVM or electronic voting machine “hackathon”, the same day of the Election Commission’s infection for the parties to prove counterfeiting allegations.

AAP said its “counter-hackathon” aims to demonstrate that the exercise of the election commission “is a farce.”

The party in power in Delhi has been the most aggressive in claiming that the EVM processed during the recent state elections. But he decided to take up the challenge of the Electoral Commission, complaining that the rules are too restrictive and the only thing that could be done was to squeeze the four voting machines that were used in the last state elections.
AAP said that its hackathon shows that “no machine can be altered by touching buttons.”

The powerful electoral body, which organized the challenge of dealing with allegations that the voting machines can and have been manipulated, said it would not allow any modification of the machine’s hardware. In addition, participants can only bring wireless and toolless devices and can only touch the buttons.

The left-wing CPI-M party and the Nationalist Congress Party were the only ones to apply to participate in the Election Commission’s challenge.

The Commission invited seven national parties and 49 States parties to request the dispute, which will be transmitted live on the web.

Beef row: Kerala police arrest 8 Youth Congress workers for slaughtering ox

Kannur: On Thursday Kerala Police detained eight youth Congress workers, including the former Kannur parliament district committee Rijil Makutty for killing an ox.

The three defendants Makutty, Josey Kandathil and K. Sharafuddin had massacred a calf last week to protest against the Center’s decision to impose restrictions on cattle trade for the massacre, sparking national outrage.

Police have previous Kannur Sunday filed a case against the district youth congressional president and other workers in Congress under section 120 (A) of the Kerala Police Act, to knock down veal in public view.

Police filed the case on the basis of a video in which the president of the Youth Congress, Rigil Pookkutty and other youth congress workers could see the sacrifice of the calf.

The incident comes amid the cry in the sky of the new rule from the center of the ban on the sale of animals for slaughter or religious slaughter in livestock markets and animal fairs.

The Federation of Indian Students (IFC) also organized a protest against the ban on the consumption of beef in Kerala outside University College, Trivandrum.

Head of Government of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan said that the decision of the Center was surprising, was not suitable for a democratic nation. However, welcome to the decision of the Center, union minister Maneka Gandhi said that the step is commendable and made “in the interests of farmers.”

Minister of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, Harsh Vardhan ordered before the ministry has notified the Regulation for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (cattle markets Regulations), 2017 as’ ensure that the sale of livestock is not Destined to massacre.

“The purpose of the regulation is very specific, it is only to regulate sales in the market of pets and livestock in these markets, and ensure the welfare of livestock in the market. Market of animals at the local level, “Vardhan told ANI.

He said that the seller and the buyer should make sure that both the cattle are not bought or sold in the market for the slaughter. “A corresponding commitment should be taken into account by the Animal Market Committee vocal sales clerk and the buyer,” Vardhan said.

According to the notification, cattle are defined as “bulls, bulls, cows, buffaloes, oxen, heifers and calves and camels.”

The rules also state that the buyer does not have to sacrifice animals for religious purposes or sell it to someone out of state without permission and must comply with state animal welfare laws.

Ahead Of Donald Trump Decision, China Says It Will Stick To Paris Climate Deal

Ahead Of Donald Trump Decision, China Says It Will Stick To Paris Climate Deal

BEIJING (Reuters) – China said on Thursday it would fit into the Paris climate deal as the expected announcement by US President Donald Trump on the question of whether to keep the United States in the Global Compact fighting climate change .

During his presidential campaign in 2016, Trump has denounced the agreement and it is called global warming a hoax to weaken American industry. A source close to the affair said that Trump was about to leave the agreement.

A withdrawal from the United States could deepen a distancing with the allies. The United States would join Syria and Nicaragua as the only nonparticipants participating in the world in the historic agreement of 195 countries agreed in Paris in 2015.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying said the agreement was not easily reached and represented the broad consensus of the international community.

“Climate change is a global challenge. Without a county you can not put yourself out of it,” he told a daily news conference.

Whatever other countries change their positions in China would follow the green concept of sustainable development, strengthen measures to address climate change and conscientiously follow the Paris agreement, said M. Hua.

“Meanwhile, we will continue to be decidedly protective and promoter of the global processes of the climate system, actively participating in the process of multilateral climate change,” Hua said.

“We are willing to work with all parties to protect the entire Paris adjustment process, promoting the rules and regulations of the current agreement in the follow-up of the talks and effectively disseminate, and promote global, low carbon and sustainable ecological development “.

When asked if China had spoken to the administration of the triumph of the Paris agreement, she said: “China and the United States have close communication on a variety of issues, and of course, this includes the issue of climate change.”
Climate change has been widely seen as one of the few highlights of cooperation between Beijing and the former Obama administration in Washington.

China and the European Union are due to issue a statement at a high-level meeting in Brussels to commit to implementing the climate deal in order to strengthen the pact because Trump seems to give up.

China surpassed the US As the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases in 2007. But a US withdrawal from the deal would give China more opportunities to shine its image as a world leader.

China has led previous attempts by foreign governments to limit carbon emissions, saying that it should be possible to create the same spatial development and pollution as industrialized countries.

But with its capital often drowned by smog and its people angry against the degradation of the environment that rapid development ran across the country, Beijing has become a staunch supporter of efforts to stop global warming.

During the same period, two other similar proposals were rejected, while the protest was blocking the government’s plans to build Peringome plants near Kannur And Ernakulam Bhoothathankettu, the two districts of Kerala.
2. KKNPP has encountered obstacles as the protests prevented the government from moving forward with the project. At the dawn of the Kudankulam demonstrations six years ago, 182 people were arrested, many accused of sedition. In total, 8000 cases were recorded. But little by little, the government managed to carry out the project. Over the years, four reactor units were built and operationalized. However, the plant has not given the promised power during the warranty tests. Its generation was only about 52 percent.

3. The last two reactor units will be constructed and installed jointly by Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd and Atomstroyexport. The latter is a subsidiary of the Rosatom regulatory body of the Russian nuclear complex. Each unit will have a power generation capacity of 1,000 MW.
4. PM Modi and Putin reached an agreement in 2015. According to the agreement, the agreement to build the 5 unit and 6 nuclear reactors unit at the plant was to be signed in 2016. The agreement had an obstacle with respect to the line Was to be extended by Russia.
5. The visit will try to seal the agreement so that the plant can be fully operational soon. The success of the agreement will also increase bilateral trade. Bilateral trade between India and Russia amounted to $ 7.8 billion to date. The number has dropped significantly compared to 10 billion in 2014.

BJP shows flexibility over beef ban, says states are free to decide on slaughter of cows

BJP shows flexibility over beef ban, says states are free to decide on slaughter of cows

Being in the middle of a storm at the center of the ban on the sale of cattle for the massacre, the BJP in power has shown some flexibility. Assuming that most of the BJP leaders in Meghalaya eat beef, the party has also said that it is up to state governments to decide to ban the slaughter of cows.
Speaking to India today on the recent government notification Narendra Modi prohibits the sale of cattle for the massacre, the BJP’s national voice in charge of Meghalaya Nalin Kohli said: “The BJP clearly stated that the issue having a law in a State in the slaughter of cows is to be decided by the state and not by the Center. ”
Of the BJP’s position in states such as Northeastern and Southern states, where the majority of the population consumes beef, Kohli said: “Any state government decides to have a law or does not have a law on the slaughter of cows, Account the local food habits of this particular state and in the Northeast, each state government will take into account. ”
Kohli’s statement makes it clear that the BJP is open to states that are governed by what beef consumption and do not interfere with local eating habits. There is speculation that BJP governments are banning meat in the north-eastern and southern states, where consumption is considered normal.
Taking a flexible position, on the ban on beef, BJP avoided rebellion in their ranks. He also lost his shame because many BJP leaders in the Northeast and the South consume beef.
BJP leaders in Meghalaya, including their head of state unity Shibun Lyngdoh, have already taken the position that if the party comes to power in the 2018 Assembly elections, it does not prohibit beef consumption. Another leader, Bernard Marak, president of the Tura town unit in the hills of Garo BJP became the promise that meat prices would be cheaper if the party won the state elections.
In May 2015, the Minister of State of the Union of Origin Kiren Rijiju said that he eats beef and no one could prevent him from doing so. He was responding to the comments of the Minister of Minorities Affairs of the Union and those who wanted to eat beef could go to Pakistan.
Later Rijiju said that he had been “misunderstood”. However, he always maintained that India was a secular country and that eating habits can not be stopped. He said that just as Hindu faith and feelings must be respected in Hindu majority states, those of other communities are respected in their own dominant states.
Assuming a problem in order to expand the base of other states, BJP has clearly established its position regarding the meat embargo. The party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has focused on the Northeast, West Bengal and Kerala. Meat consumption is considered normal in all these states. Any attempt to curb the risk of encountering strong resistance.

Loading Up on Citrus Daily Can Reduce the Risk of Dementia in Older Adults: Study

Citrus fruits have been associated with protecting the body from various diseases, as they are rich in vitamin C, folic acid, thiamin and various antioxidants.

According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition, elderly people who consume citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, limes and lemons every day can reduce the risk of dementia by 23%.

Researchers at the University of Tohuku Japan found that daily intake of these fruits may reduce the chances of developing an incurable brain disease by nearly a quarter. Read on to learn more about the study.

The study suggests that these fruits contain citric acid that still has a chemical called nobiletine is responsible for slowing memory deficit in animal testing.

The researchers looked at about 13,000 seven-year-olds to see how many of them developed dementia. The results suggest that people who eat citrus fruits were 23 percent less likely to develop dementia than those who ate less than twice a week.

According to researchers at the University of Tohuku few biological studies indicate that citrus can have preventive effects against cognitive decline.

However, no study has actually shown the relationship between citrus consumption and the rate of dementia.

The exact relationship between citrus and dementia has yet to be established, but the study suggests that frequent consumption may reduce the risk of dementia if not cure.

Citrus fruits are all healthy to consume. Therefore, the best way to load on citrus fruits is to consume a lot of lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit or mandarin orange. Citrus fruits are an excellent source of vitamin C, which also strengthens the immune system and keep the skin shiny.

They are an excellent source of soluble fiber, which helps improve digestive health and promote weight loss.

Cancer more common than marriages, says study

Cancer more common than marriages, says study

Cancer more common than marriages, says study

London: Being diagnosed with cancer is now a common-life event that will marry or have the first baby, a research report revealed in the UK.

Researchers found that more than 70 000 new cancer cases each year in the UK make new marriages.

The latest figures also show that there are almost 50 000 new cancer cases each year in England and Wales than women giving birth to their first child.

According to the report of the British organization Macmillan Cancer Support, a similar number of degrees awarded each year in the UK on new cases of cancer.

Cancer affects many people at the forefront of their lives. More than 1.2 million people were diagnosed with cancer under age 65 in the last 10 years, more than 340,000 were diagnosed in the 20, 30 and 40 years.

The research found that when receiving a diagnosis of cancer is an increasingly common life event, it is the disease that people most fear.

For one in 10 in the UK, cancer is the greatest fear of all, before losing one’s own death or even terrorism.

The report emphasizes that people’s perceptions and fears about cancer may be unnecessary to help them understand their options when diagnosed.

When they were told they had cancer, one in three (34%) said they were stunned and could not take anything.

As one in two people will develop cancer at some point in their lives and more and more people live longer after cancer, the researchers asked the public to better understand the reality of a cancer diagnosis.

“It’s been said that cancer changed his life, and that can leave people feeling that they were pushed into the unknown, bewildered and unprepared,” said Lynda Thomas, CEO of Macmillan Cancer Support.

“But as more and more people are diagnosed with cancer, it’s important that we’re all better informed about what to expect if one day we get this shocking information,” Thomas said.
