Trump on Kashmir issue Will talk to PM Modi at G7 Summit

first_imgNew Delhi: US President Donald Trump Tuesday said he would discuss the Kashmir issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the sidelines of the G7 Summit this weekend in France. Calling it an “explosive situation”, Trump said he would “do the best (he) can to mediate” between India and Pakistan.”I will be with Prime Minister Modi… I’ll be with him over the weekend in France. I think, we are helping (resolve the tense) situation (between India and Pakistan),” Trump was quoted as saying by news agency PTI. “I will do the best I can to mediate or do something.

A lot has to do with religion. Religion is a complicated subject,” Trump said, speaking to reporters in the Oval Office of the White House. “You have the Hindus. And you have the Muslims. I wouldn’t say they get along so great. That’s what you have right now.” Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayThe development comes a day after Trump spoke separately to PM Modi and Pakistan PM Imran Khan in a bid to ease Indo-Pak tensions which have escalated since the abrogation of special status to Jammu and Kashmir on August 5. In a tweet Tuesday, Trump said, “Spoke to my two good friends, Prime Minister Modi of India and Prime Minister Khan of Pakistan, regarding Trade, Strategic Partnerships and, most importantly, for India and Pakistan to work towards reducing tensions in Kashmir. A tough situation, but good conversations!” “Frankly, it’s a very explosive situation. I spoke to Prime Minister Khan yesterday also with Prime Minister Modi. They’re both friends of mine. They’re great people. They’re great people, and they love their country,” Trump said. Sources told The Indian Express that it was Trump who “initiated” the phone call on Monday and they described the conversation as a “good exchange” between the two leaders.India has maintained that it is an internal matter, in a telephonic conversation with Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, United States Secretary of Defence Mark Esper appreciated India’s stance on the matter. A statement released by the ministry said: “Singh raised the issue of cross-border terrorism affecting India and appreciated US support for India’s effort to maintain peace and stability in the region. He said that issues relating to Article 370 are an internal matter of India which are aimed at improving growth and economic development, democracy and prosperity for the people of Jammu and Kashmir.” Esper told his Indian counterpart that he hoped that any issue between India and Pakistan will be resolved bilaterally, the statement added.(With inputs from Indian Express)last_img read more

Health warnings plain covers for pot packs under proposed regs

first_imgOTTAWA – Health Canada offered hints Tuesday about the government’s plans for legal pot, including, plain packaging and stern, stark health warnings like those found on tobacco products.The department released a set of proposed regulations that, among other things, would limit colours and graphics on cannabis packs and establish a system to trace pot through the distribution system.It said the warnings should highlight risks, including the dangers associated with cannabis use during pregnancy, drug-impaired driving and what can happen when alcohol is mixed with marijuana.The department’s so-called consultation paper is now open to public feedback for the next two months.Speaking outside the House of Commons, Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor said the government is studying other proposals including a tracking system to monitor the cannabis supply chain and help prevent pot being diverted into and out of the legal market.Health Canada also said Tuesday the proposals seek to elaborate on elements including what can be displayed on a package and what can’t, including anything that might entice youngsters.“Text and graphics used in brand elements could not be appealing to youth and would be subject to the packaging and labelling restrictions in the proposed Cannabis Act,” the department said.“Health Canada is also considering establishing standards (such as limiting use of colour and size) of these brand elements.”Government officials said late Tuesday the proposals attempt to elaborate on what can be displayed on a package to ensure the legal industry can keep itself distinct from the black market, while competing with it.Producers would be allowed to display brand elements, the officials confirmed, saying they are talking to legal producers about packaging.The officials also said Health Canada sees its plans as consistent with what the federally appointed task force on pot legalization recommended: plain and standard packaging.The proposed regulations would also require that cannabis workers get valid security clearances issued by the minister of health. Individuals with connections to organized crime, or criminal records or shady associates could be denied clearances.Earlier Tuesday, Statistics Canada said it plans to start measuring the economic and social impacts of recreational pot — even before it becomes legal.The agency said it wants to gradually develop the capabilities to capture and report information on non-medical cannabis.It says collecting data both before and after marijuana becomes legal will allow Canadians, governments and businesses to form a clearer picture of the economic and social consequences of lawful pot.The Liberals also faced criticism from the opposition Tuesday for limiting debate on their cannabis legislation, which is currently before the House of Commons.Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould defended the move, saying the government has long been up front with the House and with Canadians about the plan to legalize pot by July 2018.—with files from Andy Blatchfordlast_img read more

Phil Jackson Rules Out Any Return To Coaching

Phil Jackson had interest in returning to the Los Angeles Lakers, but that was it. No other team interests him. So let go of any hopes of luring him back, Washington Wizards or any other team soon to be seeking new leadership.After a brief flirtation with a comeback after the Lakers fired Mike Brown, Jackson said to that the chances are “slim and none, probably” that he would return to the profession he won 11 NBA championships as coach.“I really wasn’t looking to coach again,” he said. “That one was happenstance, and it just came about.”Jackson, 67, interviewed with the Lakers following Brown’s firing, but was eventually passed over in favor of Mike D’Antoni — a move that confounded many, including Jackson and D’Antoni.Jackson had two stints with the Lakers, winning five championships with the team and 11 overall as a coach — six others with the Bulls. As a player, Jackson won two titles with the Knicks.“Well, we never discussed any terms, so there was never anything that was unfair,” Jackson told TMZ. “It was just a midnight coup. It was kind of weird.”While Jackson is trying to be diplomatic, he did call the Lakers’ handling of the situation, “slimy.” In a statement, though, Jackson was a bit more cordial.“I was awakened at midnight on Sunday by a phone call from Mitch Kupchak. He told me that the Lakers had signed Mike D’Antoni to a 3-year agreement and that they felt he was the best coach for the team. The decision is of course theirs to make. I am gratified by the groundswell of support from the Laker Fans who endorsed my return and it is the principal reason why I considered the possibility.”According to reports, which were disputed by other reports, Jackson was seeking unprecedented power over the team with the ability to veto roster moves as well as special travel considerations to help with his health issues — as well as a massive contract somewhere in the range of $10 million-$15 million. read more

Arsenal tipped to rescue Barcelona forgotten man in January

first_imgThe Premier League heavyweights Arsenal intend to offer Barcelona outcast an escape route in the January transfer windowUnai Emery, who has started his adventure at Emirates off on the wrong foot, now leads his side through a marvelous period, but he seems willing to improve his team in the forthcoming transfer session.With Alex Iwobi, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Danny Welbeck all struggle to maintain form and consistency, the ex-PSG boss would like to sign another external forward.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.According to the British newspaper, Daily Star, the Gunners are lining up a January loan move for Barcelona out-of-favor winger Malcom.The 21-year-old Brazilian arrived at Camp Nou this summer for a fee of €41 million although he seemed to be heading towards the Stadio Olimpico, as AS Roma already had a virtual agreement with both Bordeaux and the player.Malcom’s decision to turn the Giallorossi down and move to Catalonia instead turns up to be a massive mistake.

Weather Eye Too early to say if weve already seen the worst

first_imgI was just thinking the other day that January is almost gone and February will be upon us. Could the worst of winter weather be about over? Well, February can be most brutal but no early signs of that occurring at this point.It does look like we are going to get saturated again the next couple of days with more rain and possible flooding issues. Areas to our north still have snow on the ground and the east slopes of the Cascades in Washington have a good snow depth, so possible flooding over there if things get too warm and wet.By the weekend things should calm down and we rest under higher pressure and drier conditions and maybe lots of fog and cooler temperatures as we encounter another inversion situation.Some longer range computer forecast models indicate by this time next week we could possibly get a short-lived period of cold weather and very low snow levels, maybe all the way down to sea level, so we will have to watch that possibility. The first couple days of February could have some very cold nights.Beyond that we may go back to a high pressure syndrome keeping us in a relatively mild and dry weather pattern. Think same old, same old like before all the weather action the past couple of weeks.last_img read more

China protests after US warship sails near island

first_imgBeijing voiced displeasure on Friday after a US warship sailed near an artificial island in the disputed South China Sea, an operation that prompted the Chinese navy to warn off the American destroyer.Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said the actions of the USS John S. McCain had violated Chinese and international law, “seriously” impairing the country’s sovereignty and security.“China is strongly dissatisfied with this,” Geng said in a statement, adding that Beijing would lodge an official protest with Washington.The USS John S. McCain destroyer sailed within six nautical miles of Mischief Reef—an artificial island built by China—on Thursday as part of a “freedom of navigation” operation, a US official said.The reef is part of the disputed Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, which is the scene of rival claims between China and neighbouring countries.Speaking on condition of anonymity, the US official told AFP a Chinese frigate sent radio warnings at least 10 times to the USS McCain.“They called and said ‘please turn around, you are in our waters’,” the official said. “We told them we are a US (ship) conducting routine operations in international waters.”The official said the interactions were all “safe and professional,” with the operation lasting about six hours from start to finish, but Geng said such operations “seriously endanger lives”.The freedom of navigation operation was the third of its kind carried out by the United States since President Donald Trump took office in January.Overlapping claimsThe US move came four days after the United States, Australia and Japan denounced Beijing’s island-building and militarisation of the South China Sea on the sidelines of a security forum of the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Manila.China claims nearly all of the sea, through which $5 trillion in annual shipping trade passes and which is believed to sit atop vast oil and gas deposits.Its sweeping claims overlap with Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei—all ASEAN members—as well as Taiwan.But in recent years Beijing has managed to weaken regional resistance by courting some ASEAN members.On Sunday China scored a coup when ASEAN ministers issued a diluted statement on the dispute and agreed to its terms on talks at the Manila meeting.China insists that a much-delayed code of conduct between it and ASEAN members over the disputed sea must not be legally binding, a demand to which Southeast Asian countries have so far acquiesced.Chinese defence ministry spokesman Wu Qian said the situation in the South China Sea has “stabilised” due to the “joint efforts” of China and neighbouring countries but the US operation threatened “peace and stability in the region”.“The US military’s provocative actions will only encourage the Chinese military to further strengthen the defence capacity building and firmly defend national sovereignty and security,” Qian said.The operation also comes amid soaring tensions on the Korean peninsula over Pyongyang’s missile programme, and as the United States seeks to push China into more assertively restraining North Korea.Pentagon spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Chris Logan declined to comment on whether there had been a freedom of navigation sailing but he said the United States would continue to do such operations.“All operations are conducted in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows,” he said.last_img read more

Speaking Out 2012 a year of protests

first_imgIn 2012, it seemed there was a protest every week. Sometimes there were several. But unlike years past, there was no central issue that united demonstrators – such as the so-called “ICE Combo” of 2000 and the Central America-U.S. Free Trade Agreement of 2007. This year, members of many diverse sectors exercised their democratic right to public demonstration, including motorcycle owners, taxi drivers, public-sector workers, farmers, environmentalists and university students and professors. According to this year’s State of the Nation report, a measure of the country’s social, economic, political and development goals, in 2011, 632 collective protests were registered, 85 percent more than the previous year and only surpassed in 1995, when Costa Ricans marched against the political and economic policies of then-President José María Figueres, and 2004, when the government of Abel Pacheco approved a monopoly over vehicle inspections for the private company RITEVE.This year began with small demonstrations. Costa Rica’s LGBT community held protests in front of Casa Presidencial, in the southeastern San José district of Zapote, demanding equal rights. LGBT community members called on President Laura Chinchilla to send two bills to the Legislative Assembly that would grant same-sex couples the same rights as straight couples. Both bills await discussion by lawmakers and have stalled in Congress. In March, students of the Liceo de Costa Rica marched against the construction of Chinatown, a pet project of San José Mayor and presidential primary candidate Johnny Araya. Chinatown was built along the historic Paseo de los Estudiantes, adjacent to the Liceo de Costa Rica, a famous high school attended by more than one past president. After months of construction, Chinatown was inaugurated with much fanfare earlier this month. In February, taking their lead from the 99 Percent Movement in New York and other U.S. cities, Costa Rica’s “Los Indignados” (The Indignant Ones) held various rallies throughout San José to draw attention to rampant corruption and the need to respect human rights.But the first large, multi-sectorial protest was held when thousands of Costa Ricans attempted to block an administration decision to increase wages for public-sector workers by only ₡5,000 ($10). Union representatives were outraged that the Chinchilla administration would unilaterally set a mandatory wage hike without first consulting the unions. Unions also considered the $10 raise well below the increasing cost of living. Following intense negotiations, the raise rate held out, a victory for an administration facing serious financial difficulties and a skyrocketing fiscal deficit. In May, Costa Rica made international headlines when it sought to extradite environmental activist and Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson, who was arrested on a Costa Rican request in Germany. The move sparked protests around the globe by supporters of the marine conservation organization and its controversial leader. Sea Shepherd supporters bombarded The Tico Times and the Chinchilla administration with emails and messages on social media networks in support of Watson, blasting what they considered to be an environmental double-standard by Costa Rica, which markets itself abroad as an ecological paradise. Protests in Costa Rica over Watson’s arrest were much smaller than in Germany, France and other countries. But behind the scenes, environmental groups were meeting with members of the Chinchilla administration – including Environment Minister René Castro – to lobby for stricter regulations on the practice of shark finning and the transport and storage of shark fins, a devastatingly bloody practice by fishermen that is decimating global shark populations.  Watson, who is also wanted by Japan, so far has avoided facing trial and is currently embarking on another campaign in the Southern Ocean to stop the annual Japanese whaling hunt, the focus of Animal Planet TV’s “Whale Wars.”Another march at the end of July brought together thousands of small-scale farmers (and several large-scale ones) from across the country to demand that taxes on farmland be reduced. A mandatory readjustment in real estate valuations would have rated farmland the same as tourism and urban development projects, and farmers – already struggling – said the new rates would bankrupt them. Lawmakers sided with farmers and passed a law stipulating that farmland taxes would be rated based on a property’s historical value, plus 20 percent, a deal that ended the protests. Workers in the country’s transportation sector weren’t to be left out this year, as private chauffeurs (known as porteadores), taxi drivers and motorcycle owners held several demonstrations throughout the year, blocking several roads and major thoroughfares throughout the greater metropolitan area. Porteadores demanded special permits to allow them to work legally. The government responded by approving the creation of 5,000 permits, of which half have been distributed to date. Motorcycle owners grew furious with what they considered to be a severe hike in the price of annual vehicle circulation permits, known as marchamos. In the past few months, a common sight was hundreds of bikers parked in front of the National Insurance Institute, or at several of the city’s roundabouts. Their latest protest turned violent when bikers attacked cars and a bus when motorists tried to circumvent the bikers’ blockade of major roadways. After days of fiery debate and discussion, lawmakers passed a bill in a second round of debate that lowered the price of marchamos for motorcycles by {13,000 ($26). (Automobile owners, meanwhile, will be charged an extra {2,000, about $4, to help pay the difference.)Other protests turned violent this year. After President Chinchilla vetoed a bill that would have allowed photocopying of books for academic purposes, a group of university students organized a demonstration in October in front of the Legislative Assembly. The protest was infiltrated by a self-described group of young “anarchists” who attacked anti-riot police and lawmakers with rocks, sticks and bags of urine, causing $14,000 of damage to the assembly building in the process. Protesters accused police of striking the first blows. Days later, Chinchilla signed a decree allowing students to photocopy books for educational purposes.But the most violent protest occurred in front of the Costa Rican Social Security System (Caja) headquarters in downtown San José on Nov. 8. The focal point of the rally was opposition to budget cuts at local hospitals and clinics, and a call for Caja directors to resign. By mid-day, the situation had turned tense as dozens of riot police approached hundreds of protesters to attempt to remove them from one of the city’s main thoroughfares. Protesters refused to budge and police moved in to make arrests. Three lawmakers attempted to intervene, and hours later, a total of 36 people were arrested and several were injured, including police officers and lawmakers. Costa Rica, a country that prides itself on pacifism and the democratic right to organize and protest, was outraged at the violence that unfolded. Another massive march was quickly organized days later, on Nov. 15, and thousands of people marched peacefully along Avenida 2, singing, dancing, chanting and promoting peace along the way. Also in November, a group of environmentalists, farmers and academics protested against a request by D&PL, a local subsidiary.

Huge upsurge in Google searches for Cyprus tourism

first_imgGoogle searches by people interested in tourism in Cyprus reach about 100 million a year, while in 2017 there was a 60 per cent increase, according to the Google Travel Director for Greece, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Malta, Orestis Andrianis.According to CNA, speaking at the digitisation conference ‘ Cyprus International 2019’ in Nicosia, Andrianis said that the increase in searches for Cyprus through Google was the 7th largest in Europe.Some 70 per cent of the searches come from 10 countries, with the United Kingdom, Russia, Germany and Israel leading, which is reflected in tourism arrivals to the island, with 81 per cent of visitors coming from these countries.Andrianis said online searches reflect the reality of tourism and this must be taken into account by companies active in the industry. Half of searches were made on mobile devices, which he said should be taken into account in the shaping of websites for hotels, restaurants and other tourism businesses.Based on a survey by Google, the perception of Cyprus as a tourist destination is shaped searches relating to beaches, which account for 47 per cent, followed 35 per cent of searches interested in the island’s culture, and 34 per cent interested in how friendly the people are.Cyprus searches are not associated with specific activities, the report said.Andrianis said 90 per cent of people who visit Cyprus consider sun and sea the island’s biggest positive but seasonality was an issue, he said. Cyprus is associated with summer and this coupled with the perception that there is a lack of activities, is worrying.He said there were 84 million searches for hotels in Cyprus and only one million for activities, “a number that is very small compared with other destinations”.He also stressed that new experiences and activities could open up new prospects for tourism and address the problem of seasonality at the same time.In his address to the conference, the new Deputy Minister of Tourism Savvas Perdios referred to the need to move from mass marketing to personalised holidays.The goal in the coming years, he said, is to focus not only on experiences but also on creating feelings for visitors so that their trip to Cyprus is something they can remember forever.“Our role as a tourism industry is to be able to provide experiences and create feelings,” he said.He also noted the role that local cuisine can play, along with Cypriot hospitality.Perdios referred to the importance of Instagram as a tool for reaching a larger number of tourists, and the need for tourism business websites to differentiate according to the needs of different nationalities and groups.The minister also said that diversification of the tourist product was particularly important, noting the need for more personalised experiences, which he said was currently missing from the market.Cyprus saw close to four million visitors in 2018, a record number.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoMemory Care | Search AdsLuxury Memory Care Facilities in Rowland HeightsMemory Care | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
