Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Sunday said the Union government’s ‘Act East Policy’ needs to be made more proactive by promoting India’s economic cooperation, cultural ties and ties with South East Asian countries.Mr. Sonowal met Minister of State for External Affairs V. Muraleedharan here to discuss ways to successfully implement the ‘Act East Policy’, which is the brain-child of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and ensure that the North-East region benefits from it. The policy needs to be made more proactive by promoting India’s economic cooperation, cultural ties and friendly and strategic relationship with South East Asian countries by consistently harping on continuous engagement at bilateral and multilateral levels taking Assam and North East as the heart of the policy, Sonowal said.Mr. Sonowal requested the Union Minister to use this policy as a tool to furthering economic initiatives. He also said that continuous engagements of all the South East Asian countries in the fields of education, cultural exchanges and people to people contact would also go a long way to make Act East Policy more successful. The Chief Minister said since connectivity is another core area which can bring different geographic entities closer, he requested the Union Minister to use his office to fine tune the institutional mechanism for improved airways, roadways, waterways, railways and information ways in the north eastern region. If this is done, North East will get the real benefits of being the active stake holder in the country’s Act East Policy, Mr. Sonowal added.

The amount of water flowing into the Missouri River from Yankton’s Gavins Point Dam will remain high throughout the summer and fall, and that water will likely continue to exacerbate flooding downstream.The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it plans to keep releases near current levels of 70,000 cubic feet per second, which are more than double the average amount.The high releases will likely continue worsening flooding downstream – in Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas – where many levees were damaged during severe March flooding.Officials say the higher releases are needed because the upstream reservoirs remain quite full.The amount of water entering the dams in June was 159 percent of normal, and it continues to be a wet year.

X-Files star Gillian Anderson spoke up for orcas during SeaWorld’s online annual meeting this week.She will submited a question on behalf of PETA — which owns stock in the company in order to educate stakeholders and propose policy changes — asking SeaWorld to build coastal sanctuaries for the long-suffering captive orcas. Her question follows the National Aquarium’s announcement that it will be sending the eight dolphins there — one of whom was born at SeaWorld — to a seaside sanctuary.The full text of Anderson’s question for SeaWorld on behalf of PETA follows:“My name is Gillian Anderson, and I have a question on behalf of PETA. We thank SeaWorld for ending its orca-breeding program. This decision is a blessing for future generations of orcas, who will never endure the misery of life in a concrete tank. But for the 23 orcas who are still languishing at SeaWorld, it’s not enough.“Esteemed scientists and orca researchers have endorsed seaside sanctuaries in ocean coves, where orcas who have suffered for years at SeaWorld would be able to enjoy some semblance of a natural life and finally feel the ocean currents. In SeaWorld’s tanks, orcas break their teeth gnawing on bars and concrete, and they go insane from the reverberations of their sophisticated sonar off the tank walls. They’re separated from their families and forced to live in incompatible groups. Captivity is slowly killing them—and quickly killing Sea World’s profits. SeaWorld stock continues to plunge, earnings remain down, and visitors aren’t coming back.“SeaWorld must follow the lead of the National Aquarium, which is moving all eight of its dolphins — including 17-year-old Jade, who was born at SeaWorld Orlando — to a seaside sanctuary, a decision that has met with overwhelming public support.“Given the tide of public opinion against orca captivity, my question is: When will SeaWorld retire the orcas to protected sea sanctuaries and reinvent the park with attractions glorifying the ocean, rather than traumatizing its most intelligent inhabitants? Thank you.”PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment” — has owned stock in SeaWorld since the company went public in 2013 and asked questions at its annual meetings in 2014 and 2015. PETA withdrew this year’s shareholder resolution, submitted in December 2015, asking for an end to SeaWorld’s orca-breeding program after the company’s March 2016 announcement that it would do exactly that.

Chinese technology giant Huawei has yet to feel the full force of U.S. sanctions due to temporary exemptions and other uncertainties.Nonetheless, Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei says he expects no permanent relief because of the political climate in Washington. In an interview with The Associated Press, he also expressed confidence the company will thrive because it is developing its own technology.In May, the U.S. Commerce Department placed Huawei on its so-called Entity List. That effectively bars U.S. firms from selling it technology without government approval. The move escalates trade-war tensions with Beijing and risks dividing the world into two technology spheres as Huawei becomes more self-sufficient.Here’s a look at what’s behind the dispute and what it means.WHO’S AFFECTED?Huawei is the world’s leading provider of networking equipment, but it relies on U.S. components including computer chips. About a third of Huawei’s suppliers are American. Many are no longer permitted to sell to Huawei.Huawei’s smartphones, for example, will have to stop using the consumer-friendly version of Google’s Android operating system that comes with maps, music and other popular services. Without those services, smartphone makers such as Samsung would have the advantage.There are exceptions to the sanctions and questions about their scope.This week, the U.S. government extended by another 90 days a limited reprieve on a narrow list of products and services. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the main aim is to give smaller U.S. internet and wireless companies that rely on Huawei more time to transition away from reliance on its products. The grace period also allows U.S. providers to alert Huawei to security vulnerabilities and engage the Chinese company in research on standards for next-generation wireless networks known as 5G.Other exports to Huawei officially remain restricted, though practice differs. Those sanctions, for instance, don’t bar U.S. telecom companies from buying Huawei equipment. And analysts say U.S. semiconductor companies that supply Huawei have determined that the export sanctions don’t apply to a significant portion of their sales.WHAT’S BEHIND THE SANCTIONS?The U.S. defence and intelligence communities have long accused Huawei of being an untrustworthy agent of Beijing’s repressive rulers — though without providing evidence. The U.S. government’s sanctions are widely seen as a means of pressuring reluctant allies in Europe to exclude Huawei equipment from 5G. Washington says it’s a question of national security and punishment of Huawei for skirting sanctions against Iran, but the backdrop is a struggle for economic and technological dominance.China already has a policy seeking technological independence by 2025. Huawei is now likely to move toward making all components domestically. Earlier this year, Huawei released its own chip for next-generation smartphones and the first phone based on that chip. Recently, the company unveiled its own smartphone operating system it said can replace Android.WHO USES HUAWEI ANYWAY?While most consumers in the U.S. don’t even know how to pronounce Huawei (it’s “HWA-way”), its brand is well known in most of the rest of the world, where people have been buying its smartphones in droves.Huawei stealthily became an industry star by plowing into new markets, developing a lineup of phones that offer affordable options for low-income households and luxury models that are siphoning upper-crust sales from Apple and Samsung in China and Europe.That formula helped Huawei establish itself as the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones. Research firm IDC says Huawei’s shipments increased 8% to reach 58.7 million in the second quarter, though executives believe the company could have done better without the sanctions.RIPPLE EFFECTSThe U.S. sanctions could have unwelcome ripple effects in the U.S., given how much technology Huawei buys from U.S. companies, especially from makers of the microprocessors that go into smartphones, computers, internet networking gear and other gadgetry.The list of chip companies that supply Huawei includes Micron Technologies, Qualcomm, Qorvo and Skyworks Solutions.More than 52,000 technology jobs in the U.S. are directly tied to China exports, according to the Computing Technology Industry Association, a trade group also known as CompTIA.Frank Bajak And Michael Liedtke, The Associated Press

Opinion: ‘The British General Election changed everything’ The astonishing performance of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has far reaching implications, not just within Britain but beyond, writes Owen Worth. By Owen Worth Jun 15th 2017, 6:30 AM Thursday 15 Jun 2017, 6:30 AM AT FIRST GLANCE the British General Election result might not appear that significant. A strategic error by the ruling party backfired, leaving them requiring support from the nearest ideological party to them in parliament in order to survive in office.Yet, the astonishing performance of Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party has far reaching implications, not just within Britain but beyond.Since the end of the Cold War we have witnessed a significant increase in what can be termed “radical civil society”. Movements and groups that are transnational in objective and have looked to challenge the fabric of “globalisation” and the nature of “corporate” or “neoliberal” capitalism.Yet, whilst this new left has flourished in terms of its protest politics, it has not managed to convert this mobilisation at the political level, particularly within big influential core states.Jeremy Corbyn represents the very heart of this new leftThe fact that his campaign drew so much attention from all corners of the world is testament to that.As many opponents have been quick to argue, Corbyn did not “win” this election. Labour’s resurgence might equally be down to May’s dreadful campaign as much as the Corbyn factor, but two significant aspects occurred that suggest something more profound. They are also inter-related.The mobilisation of the young vote that overwhelmingly backed Corbyn was a significant development of the election. The increase of up to 30% of turnout for the age groups of 18-30 has shown that this new left has gained significant traction.The second was that Corbyn managed to make gains despite the huge onslaught levelled against him by Fleet Street. The printed press has long played a pivotal role in British elections. The Sun for example has backed every “winner” since 1974.The ferocity of the attacks of Michael Foot, Tony Benn and Neil Kinnock were such that New Labour prioritised the backing of owner Rupert Murdoch in order to gain power.Re-engaging with progressive politics Source: Shutterstock/Victoria M GardnerCorbyn’s re-engagement with socialism and new with progressive politics saw the Sun, Mail, Express et al unleash succession after succession of smear attacks that would have derailed preceding campaigns.Yet, the decline of print circulation and growth of new media has seen new avenues where the narratives from Fleet Street can be challenged and contested. The long Murdoch/Rothermere influence might just – it seems – be slipping.The other factor for the Corbyn team has to be their position within the parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) itself. The refusal to serve in the shadow cabinet by many members of the PLP, combined with the vote of no confidence that led to his second election last summer, left Corbyn with a very difficult job in parliament. However, it also has to be said that he did not help himself in this regard.His inability to offer a coherent response to Brexit in parliament threatened to derail his support base. The multicultural, internationalist stance taken by a large bulk of his support were disappointed in the weak approach taken over Article 50.Needs to build on the euphoriaYet, the open, inclusive alternative approach to Brexit outlined in the manifesto contrasted with to the narrow jingoist “hard Brexit” of the Conservatives seemed to pacify these concerns. What the Corbyn team needs to do now is to build on this moment of euphoria and on the successful manifesto put forward in order to consolidate its position.Another concern with Corbyn is that whilst there has been no end of advice and suggestions from the field of economic, politics and social policy he has not acted on them. Now he is in a more secure position, it is time that these are engaged with in far greater depth.The vultures will continued to circle to condemn him and there are several that will continue to see this as a flash in the pan and of no lasting significance. For those that are serious about building a challenge to the dynamics of neoliberal capitalism this moment must be seen as a change to act.Owen Worth is a Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Limerick and a Co-Director of the Conference of Socialist Economists (CSE).‘Some parents have to open the coffin every two hours to put in ice-packs so remains stay cool’>Column: ‘It’s not fair to ask the public to subsidise uneconomic wind farms’> Short URL https://jrnl.ie/3443961 Share147 Tweet Email Owen Worth Lecturer in International Relations, UL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 242 Views 47 Comments

Un kiwi de Nouvelle-Zélande égaré… en Russie ?Les services environnementaux néo-zélandais enquêtent sur des rapports en provenance de Russie, faisant état de la présence mystérieuse d’un kiwi – l’oiseau emblématique de la Nouvelle-Zélande – dans une localité russe près de la Mer Noire. Canular ou réalité ?Endémique de l’état insulaire de Nouvelle-Zélande, incapable de voler, rare et protégé, le kiwi, avec son long bec caractéristique et ses ailes atrophiées, ne risque guère d’être rencontré ailleurs que sur sa terre natale. C’est pourtant dans un jardin du port russe de Sotchi, au bord de la Mer Noire, qu’un de ces oiseaux aurait été observé durant trois jours, selon les médias locaux. Un voyage de 16.000 kilomètres qui étonne les zoologistes à plus d’un titre.À lire aussiL’effrayante attaque d’un crabe de cocotier sur un oiseau”C’est une histoire si étrange… Je suis abasourdi ! Cela me déconcerte, car le kiwi est nocturne et très timide, et je n’ai jamais entendu parler d’un marché noir sur cet oiseau. Et si vous ne savez pas comment vous y prendre, il peut être très agressif”, explique Paul Kavanagh, directeur du Queenstown Kiwi Birdlife Park.Les autorités portuaires russes estiment qu’il est peu probable que l’animal soit arrivé par bateau, car les contrôles sont stricts. Surveillé par des spécialistes locaux, l’oiseau est également l’objet d’une enquête des services environnementaux de Nouvelle-Zélande, soucieux de préserver les quelque 72.500 kiwis vivant encore, mais toutefois échaudés par de précédents canulars sur ce sujet.

Load More Imperial Pacific adds to Board of Directors as regulator looks to impose US$375,000 fine for late license fee payment Calls for 10% gaming tax renewed as report reveals Imperial Pacific tax payments of just US$21,000 in 2019 RelatedPosts Imperial Pacific pays remaining US$10.5 million balance on annual license fee Imperial Pacific International Chairman Mark Brown says the company remains on track to meet its deadlines for completion of Imperial Pacific Resort, despite being forced to lay-off staff and reduce operations in the wake of the devastating Typhoon Yutu that struck Saipan last month.Responding to inquiries from Inside Asian Gaming, Brown – who returned to his former position with the company in October just nine months after previously stepping down – insisted that “timelines, as long as there’s no other major disaster, will all be kept.” Explaining IPI’s long-term plans in more detail, having earlier this year had its 31 August 2018 deadline for completion of Imperial Pacific Resort extended for two-and-a-half years until 28 February 2021, Brown added that “construction still continues to move forward and the Casino Control Commission is well aware of our schedule.”The immediate focus, he said, is on completion of the facility’s Beach Resort hotel – a separate VIP building along the beach front that includes 15 Paul Steelman-designed villas. Once done, work will move back to the resort’s main tower and completion of its 324 suites.However, Brown re-iterated that IPI was left with little choice but to cut back on staff levels for the time being as Saipan continues its recovery from the impact of Yutu.“Because of Typhoon Yutu, we are seeing a dramatic loss of business and staffing levels need to be adjusted,” he told IAG.“The island is coming back as much as it can and some flights are starting to return this coming week. But our staffing levels, as it’s affecting the entire island, had to be brought back in line for us to move forward and be successful.”
