HC declares as illegal amendment by TN govt to Centres Land Acquisition

first_imgChennai: The Madras High Court has declared as “illegal” an amendment made by the Tamil Nadu government to the Centre’s Land Acquisition Act, exempting three state legislations from its purview.It also made it clear that all land acquisitions made by the state government under the three state legislations on or after September 27, 2013, were “illegal.” A division bench of Justices S Manikumar and Subramonium Prasad, which set aside the amendment on Wednesday, however, held that the lands, which had been acquired and already put to use for the purpose for which they had been acquired before September 2013, should not be disturbed.The three legislations providing for acquisition of land by the state government are Tamil Nadu Acquisition of Land for Harijan Welfare Scheme Act, 1978, Tamil Nadu Acquisition for Land for Industrial Purposes Act, 1997 and Tamil Nadu Highways Act, 2001. The matter relates to the amendment made to the Centre’s Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 by inserting a new section, 105 A.

UN health agency meets with NGOs to push healthy diet in battle

NGOs play a key role in shifting and influencing consumer demand, as well as national and international political priorities, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Gro Harlem Brundtland, told a roundtable meeting of agency officials and NGO representatives.It was the second such meeting since the WHO and the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) launched an experts’ report last month linking a healthy diet low in saturated fats, sugars and salt, and high in vegetables and fruits – coupled with regular exercise – to the battle against chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular diseases, several forms of cancer, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis and dental disease.Last week, Ms. Brundtland held the first formal Roundtable meeting to enlist the support of senior executives from the food and associated industries. The agency is currently preparing a Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health to address the growing toll of death and disability from chronic diseases for presentation to the World Health Assembly in May 2004.Thanking the NGOs for the strong support they had already shown since WHO began developing the Strategy last year in response to countries’ concerns, Dr. Brundtland said the consultation, including an all-day discussion tomorrow between NGOs and WHO officials, was an important part of the strategy development process.She emphasized that food, in its complexity, was not like tobacco, nor was it similar to infant feeding, other key issues where WHO has worked closely with NGOs.”Our approach to food is different from that to tobacco,” she said. “Shifting the pattern of diet and physical activity behaviour across the global population demands a more nuanced and multifaceted approach. We intend to pursue a constructive dialogue with all parties to develop a strategy that reflects the interests of all stakeholders on this complex issue.”Cardiovascular disease, cancers, diabetes, respiratory disease, obesity and other non-communicable conditions now account for 59 per cent of the 56.5 million global deaths each year, and almost half, or 45.9 per cent, of the global burden of disease. The majority of chronic disease problems now occur in developing countries. Unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and tobacco use are among the leading causes. read more

China and AsiaPacific region leading recovery in forest products industry – UN

The global forest products industry is slowly recovering from the economic crisis, with the Asia-Pacific region and particularly China taking the lead, according to new data published by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).On average, global production of the main forest products grew by one to four per cent in 2011 compared to 2010, FAO stated in a news release. Production of wood-based panels and paper in 2011, for example, was above the pre-crisis levels of 2007 and appears to be growing relatively strong in most regions. Currently FAO’s forest product statistics database contains 1.2 million entries, covering production and trade of 52 products, 21 product groups and 245 countries and territories. The free online database now contains statistics for the last 50 years.“The FAO database provides the world’s most comprehensive and internationally comparable statistics for forest products, a crucial tool for making policy and investment decisions,” said FAO’s Assistant Director-General for Forestry, Eduardo Rojas-Briales.The agency pointed out that China is increasing its importance as a producer of forest products, becoming the world’s second largest producer of sawnwood – which encompasses planks, beams and boards – after the United States, and having overtaken Canada. China has also increased its lead over all other countries as a producer of wood-based panels, paper and paperboard. In 2011, China produced 11 per cent of the world’s sawnwood, 38 per cent of its panels and 26 per cent of its paper. China is also playing a key role in international trade in forest products, being the largest importer of industrial roundwood, sawnwood, pulp and wastepaper and the largest exporter of wood-based panels. The country is also the fifth largest importer of paper and paperboard, despite a huge increase in domestic production since 2007. In 2011, China’s imports of all forest products amounted to $43 billion and account now for 16 per cent of the global total. In Russia, the largest forest country in the world, the structure of production and trade has changed in the last five years, with a decline in industrial roundwood exports by nearly 60 per cent and an increase in sawnwood production by 8 per cent. Over the same period, Russia has increased its sawnwood exports by 13 per cent. FAO noted that a high proportion of Russian industrial roundwood exports previously went to China, but the amount fell from 2007 to 2009 due to log export restrictions in Russia. Chinese imports of industrial roundwood have recovered though and some other major producing countries, including the US, Canada and New Zealand, have expanded exports to China. read more

Colombia UN official welcomes start of reintegration of children from FARCEP on

UN Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict Leila Zerrougui (right) delivers remarks in Havana, Cuba, at the signing of an Agreement between the Government of Colombia and the FARC-EP on the Separation and Reintegration of Children in Colombia. Photo: UN Office for Children and Armed Conflict The news release noted that the final peace agreement of 24 August recalled the primacy of child rights, in accordance with the Constitution of Colombia, and highlighted the importance of ensuring the restoration of these rights without delay to guarantee the children can experience a childhood and adolescence in peace.Children leaving the FARC-EP camps will receive care and services to respond to their specific needs to ensure their successful reintegration, with the support of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and partners.The news release added that, in accordance with the wishes expressed by the parties, Special Representative Zerrougui stands ready to support, accompany and oversee the implementation of the agreement, and looks forward to the separation of the first group of children on Saturday.Colombia’s steps towards peace are the culmination of various efforts. Since 2012, the parties had been in talks hosted in Cuba. Throughout the discussions, negotiators reached agreement on key issues such as political participation, land rights, illicit drugs and victims’ rights and transitional justice – as well as the May agreement on releasing and reintegrating child soldiers from the opposition force.In June, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon travelled to Havana, where he witnessed the bilateral signing of a ceasefire and the laying down of arms and noted that the “peace process validates the perseverance of all those around the world who work to end violent conflict not through the destruction of the adversary, but through the patient search for compromise.” “I am heartened to see that the commitment and tireless efforts of all those involved in this process, especially the Government of Colombia and the FARC-EP, are about to bring tangible results for children deeply affected by the conflict,” the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Leila Zerrougui, said in a news release.The separation and reintegration of children will be done in compliance with an agreement signed in the Cuban capital of Havana on 15 May this year. Ms. Zerrougui had been present for the signing. On Tuesday, according to Ms. Zerrougui’s office, the two parties further agreed on a protocol detailing steps for the separation and reintegration of children who will leave the FARC-EP camps, in accordance with the principle of the best interest of the child, and ensuring their treatment as victims.“By saying ’yes’ to peace, the Government and the FARC-EP, supported by the United Nations and civil society, are signalling a desire to work together towards a common objective and build a better future for these children and for the country as a whole,” Ms. Zerrougui said. read more

OSU football season preview Either you reach it or you got to

OSU then redshirt-sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) celebrates after a touchdown during a game against Michigan on Nov. 28 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Credit: Lantern file photoWhen the sixth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes take the field on Sept. 3 against Bowling Green, grab a program.Urban Meyer has never had a larger roster turnover in his five seasons as OSU’s coach. After last season, he has to replace 16 starters — eight on offense and eight on defense — which includes a senior class that won 50 games in their time in the Scarlet and Gray. It’s quite the daunting task, even more so when one considers 14 of those departed players were drafted into the NFL.Despite all that, presumptions remain the same.“Coach Meyer don’t change the expectation,” said redshirt junior strong-side linebacker Chris Worley. “Either you reach it or you got to get out.”There are new names and faces in 2016, yet the hype continues to pulsate out of the program. Here’s the OSU football season preview.OffenseNo Ezekiel Elliott, no Michael Thomas, no Braxton Miller and no Jalin Marshall. All of these playmakers are gone for the NFL.However, left behind on the dock is one of the most important members of the 2014 national championship team — redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett.OSU’s offense under Meyer has been near the top of most offensive statistics in the every year of his four seasons in Columbus. Now entering season number five with the Scarlet and Gray, Meyer says he hopes his signal caller can lead the young group at OSU. Meyer thinks that Barrett could be better in 2016 than his national freshman of the year season in 2014.“I anticipate he’ll be as good a quarterback as we’ve had,” Meyer said at Big Ten Media Days. “It’s his show, and he knows it, and he’s prepared.”Albeit, the 2016 Buckeyes may not have the experience last year’s team had, junior H-back Curtis Samuel and redshirt sophomore wide receiver Noah Brown seem most ready to become the dominant forces around Barrett.“This year I just got to have a mindset of a starter,” Samuel said. “I feel like I’m more mature this year.”Barrett has said on multiple occasions that Brown — returning from a season-ending leg injury — is his go-to receiver, and he doesn’t care how Samuel gets the ball, he just has to.As far as the offensive line is concerned, the unit known as “The Slobs” has a newer look, but a resounding mentality with new offensive line coach Greg Studrawa and redshirt senior captain Pat Elflein. Redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber will likely be named starting running back in the near future, so having a guy like Elflein leading a young group is vital to the offense’s success.“(Elflein) is a great leader that demonstrates what Ohio State’s offensive line stands for,” said redshirt freshman offensive lineman Isaiah Prince. “He’s everything that an offensive guy should want to be.”DefenseFor what can be said about Barrett on offense, the same applies to junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan.Contributing significantly as a true freshman in the 2014 national championship season, McMillan stepped up his game in 2015. leading the Buckeyes in tackles. As one of three members returning on the defense, McMillan will be asked to be more a force on the field and a mentor off of the gridiron.“We have been working with each other the whole summer, so we built that bond and that chemistry on the field,” McMillan said about his linebackers. “Once you build that chemistry on the field, you can work together and play together.”OSU ranked No. 9 overall in team defense and tied ninth in sacks last season, but lost a substantial part of their pass rush, most notably Joey Bosa.Bosa, a two-time All-American for the Buckeyes, saw double-, even triple-teams on nearly every play on defense last year, leaving room for now-redshirt sophomore Sam Hubbard and redshirt junior Tyquan Lewis to rise as the next elite “Silver Bullets” pass rushers.“I feel a lot more confident in my game (this year). I have a lot of faith in my teammates, the guys on the line with me,” Hubbard said. “There are a lot of guys hungry to make a name for themselves.”OSU has to replace both safeties from last year and although no starter has been named yet, redshirt sophomore Malik Hooker and junior Damon Webb are practicing with the first team.ScheduleAfter Meyer finds his pick of 16 guys to fill the starting roles that are up for grabs, he will settle in for one of the most difficult schedules in his time with the Buckeyes.Highlighted by a week three game at No. 3 Oklahoma, OSU will go on the road to face Wisconsin, Penn State and No. 12 Michigan State. Then, the Buckeyes will await their home finale against rival seventh-ranked Michigan in Ohio Stadium.Fans around Columbus never change their expectations for the team, and Barrett expects to live up that hype.“The way we practice, it’s not easy by any means,” Barrett said. “The guys are going to stand out there on the first snap against Bowling Green, and I’ll have confidence in them.” read more

US believe its likely that Syria have used chemical weapons

first_imgTHE UNITED STATES said today for the first time that Syria had likely used chemical weapons against rebel forces, but emphasized spy agencies were still not 100 per cent sure of the assessment.US intelligence services had been investigating reports that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces had used chemical arms – a move Washington has said would cross a “red line,” triggering possible military action.A senior White House official said “all options are on the table” should use of the weapons be confirmed, but a US defence official stressed that a military intervention was not imminent and signaled spy agencies had differing opinions.“Our intelligence community does assess with varying degrees of confidence that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons on a small scale in Syria,” US National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said.Physiological samplesThe assessment, which she said was based in part on “physiological samples,” points to the possible use of sarin, a man-made nerve agent used in two attacks in Japan in the 1990s. It can cause convulsions, respiratory failure and death.Hayden however warned the chain of custody of the weapons was “not clear, so we cannot confirm how the exposure occurred and under what conditions.”“Given the stakes involved, and what we have learned from our own recent experience, intelligence assessments alone are not sufficient,” she said.US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel, speaking in Abu Dhabi, said the decision to release the intelligence report had been “made within the past 24 hours” and warned that use of such weapons “violates every convention of warfare.”A US defence official travelling with Hagel confirmed that the phrase “varying degrees of confidence” is a term commonly used by the intelligence community to indicate disagreement among various agencies.But the assessment reflected a degree of certainty that Syria most likely has fired chemical agents and was not merely a tentative suspicion, the official said.LondonIn London, Britain’s Foreign Office too said it had “limited but persuasive” evidence of the use of chemical agents in Syria’s grinding civil war, which the UN says has left more than 70,000 people dead since it began in March 2011.Mounting evidence of chemical weapons attacks on fighters battling Assad’s regime could increase the pressure on US President Barack Obama – who has sought to avoid any US military role in the conflict – to intervene.“All options are on the table, in terms of our response, and it could run a broad spectrum of activity across our various types of efforts in Syria,” a senior White House official said, adding that Washington was consulting with its allies.The Obama administration laid out the intelligence assessment in a letter to US lawmakers from Miguel Rodriguez, director of the White House office of legislative affairs.“We do believe that any use of chemical weapons in Syria would very likely have originated with the Assad regime,” the letter said.‘Horrific use of violence’So far, US intelligence indicates that “the Assad regime maintains custody of these weapons, and has demonstrated a willingness to escalate its horrific use of violence against the Syrian people,” the letter said.Earlier this week, an Israeli general in military intelligence alleged that Syria had used chemical agents more than once during the protracted civil war, after Britain and France had voiced similar concerns to the United Nations.Last month, during a historic visit to Israel, Obama said the use of such weapons would be a “grave and tragic” mistake on Assad’s behalf and that it would be a “game changer.”‘Red line’Asked if the intelligence assessment meant that Syria had passed the declared “red line,” Hagel said that was a policy question and that his task was to provide the US president with “options.”Chemical weapons are “uncontrollable deadly weapons” that most leaders view as being in a “different category,” Hagel said at the end of a Middle East tour of Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.The Pentagon has already sent more than 200 troops to Jordan, including a US Army headquarters element, to prepare for a possible joint operation with allies to secure chemical weapons.“I think it’s pretty obvious that a red line has been crossed,” said senior US Senator John McCain, adding that the key now was to ensure chemical weapons did not fall into the wrong hands.“Some of them are in heavily contested areas and could easily fall into the hands of jihadist extremists,” he told CNN.- © AFP, 2013Read: EU reveals plans to buy oil from rebel-held parts of Syria >Column: For women giving birth in a war zone, I was more than just a midwife >last_img read more

Yahoo kills social bookmark site Delicious

first_imgOne of the first social Web 2.0 services is being killed off by Yahoo: del.icio.us, the popular social bookmarking website.The news comes via Techcrunch, who noted that they’d heard tell that Yahoo’s Christmastime layoffs (which may also have affected the Yahoo Video team) also include the entire Delicious team, which was then seemingly confirmed by a slide from a Yahoo product team meeting listing del.icio.us as a “Sunset” product.Now, Delicious’s death has been confirmed directly by Yahoo, in a canned statement:Part of our organizational streamlining involves cutting our investment in underperforming or off-strategy products to put better focus on our core strengths and fund new innovation in the next year and beyond.We continuously evaluate and prioritize our portfolio of products and services, and do plan to shut down some products in the coming months such as Yahoo! Buzz, our Traffic APIs, and others. We will communicate specific plans when appropriate. Which is PR shorthand for: “Backup your Delicious bookmarks, people.” The good news is that backing up Delicious is pretty easy: all you need to do is follow this link and you’ll be provided an option to export all your bookmarks, even including tags.RIP Del.icio.us. I never really used you, but I know a lot of people who stored their entire online lives on your service.

COPY LINKAD Loading … IT majors to lay off at least 56,000 employees this year Closecenter_img ReutersOne of India’s largest IT companies, Infosys is facing a lawsuit by an ex-employee of the company over non-payment of overtime dues. The issue of non-payment of overtime due has dogged the company in past and has come back to haunt the IT giant again. The recent issue may result in the US Department of Labour investigations.The Economic Times reported that Anuj Kapoor, who is a former employee on a CVS project in Rhode Island, had approached the court against Infosys in June, alleging that he was forced to work for more than 1,000 hours of overtime without pay. The IT behemoth replied in August and said that Anuj was an “hourly” worker on an H1-B visa even though the company has shown him a salaried employee in an application with the Department of Labour. This exact reason could attract the investigation from the Wage and Hour Division.In a filing to the court, he said that he was forced to work for 11 hour days at times and was paid for only 8 hours or fewer as CVS “refused to be billed for overtime wages”. He also said that the manager allegedly told him that the overtime amount would not be paid and failing to work more than 40 hours a week, the employees would be sent back to India. The suits claimed that the extra work would not be paid as Infosys was looking to replace a competing company as CVS’ primary software service vendor.The filing stated that “Plaintiff estimates that between May of 2015 and June of 2017, he worked approximately one thousand eighty-four overtime hours for Defendant, each of which was over and above his weekly forty hours, without any form of compensation.”It is to be noted that the company had faced similar in the past also. In 2008, the company had to pay $26 million to the California Division of Labour Standards Enforcement to settle an investigation into unpaid overtime. In a response to the Economic Times, the company said that “Infosys denies all the allegations made by this employee and will defend itself in this action. Infosys seeks to comply with all laws throughout the United States.”last_img read more

Antitrust officials raid traders including Glencore over pulses price fixing

first_imgReutersA series of raids that the antitrust watchdog conducted on units of Mumbai-based global commodities traders to seize trade records on Friday and Saturday was part of a sweeping probe into alleged commodities price rigging. About 25 officials of the Competition Commission of India (CCI) searched the offices of Swiss giant Glencore, Africa-based Export Trading Group and an Indian company belonging to the Edelweiss Group that used to previously run a commodities business, according to a Reuters report.The CCI has been investigating for the past three months allegations that the companies formed a cartel to discuss the import pricing of pulses and sell the commodity in the Indian market at higher prices in 2015 and 2016 when India was facing a severe shortage, sources said. Glencore spokesperson Charles Watenphul declined to comment to Reuters, while Edelweiss, which sold its commodities trading business in November 2016, and the Export Trading Group did not respond to requests for comment.New Delhi had allowed duty-free import of pulses include chickpeas and black lentils, which are the staple of Indian cuisine, in 2015 after two years of drought pushed up the prices of pulses. “The collusion by these companies led to higher prices of pulses” despite the duty-free imports, the report said citing a government source. A probe whether the companies continued their alleged collusion even after the pulses stabilized in recent years is also within the scope of the investigation, the source said.The raids of five offices reportedly began on Friday and concluded on Saturday. Antitrust officials have collected evidence, including documents and e-mails, and questioned company officials, the report said, citing another source. An unidentified industry executive told Reuters that CCI’s search involved going through company records at Glencore’s office in Mumbai, confirming it was part of the watchdog’s probe into accusations of price fixing. WikipediaA second successive year of drought in 2015 in the pulse-growing heartland meant crops wilted and exacerbated the shortages of food. Protein-rich pulses form an important ingredient of largely vegetarian rural India. The country consumes about 22 million tonnes of pulses annually, and the shortfall in 2015-16 amounted to 7-8 million tonnes.The CCI raids on commodities traders are only the fourth such search operation in its nearly 10 years of existence. The CCI can conduct a raid only with the prior approval of a judge. In October, the CCI raided the offices of global brewers like Carlsberg and Anheuser Busch InBev and seized e-mails that allegedly showed violations of Indian antitrust laws. However, the brewing companies have pleaded leniency under a CCI programme, the report said.last_img read more
