We will build a new India Modi

No Comments

first_imgNew Delhi: All set for a second term as prime minister, Narendra Modi on Saturday said his government will now begin “a new journey to build a new India with new energy” and asked newly elected MPs of the NDA to work without any discrimination, including on the basis of faith and castes.In his over 75-minute address after being elected the leader of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance, Modi also stressed on the need to win over the trust of minorities, saying they were made to live in “fear” and “exploited” during elections for vote bank politics, apparently a dig at the opposition parties. Also Read – Dussehra with a ‘green’ twistHe invoked the spirit of 1857 struggle for freedom, saying all communities had then joined hands for independence and a similar movement should be started for good governance now. “We stand for those who trusted us and also for those whose trust we have to win over,” he said. Modi also gave several directions to the MPs, including to not give media statements merely for publicity and shun the “VIP culture”. With speculation rife over who will join his Council of Ministers, Modi said he was yet to go through details of all the NDA MPs and asked them to not trust media reports in this regard, adding they are aimed at creating confusion and often put out with “bad intentions”.

Modi said elections often divide and create gulf but 2019 polls united people and society. There was a pro-incumbency sentiment in this election and its result was a positive mandate, he said, adding that there is no better path than serving people when in power. “We ran the government for poor people between 2014-19 and I can say the poor elected govt this time,” he said. He also called for the NDA to work with cohesion for the country’s development and said his “naara” (slogan) for the alliance is “national ambition and regional aspirations”. The NDA has 353 MPs, including 303 of the BJP. Meanwhile, President Ram Nath Kovind Saturday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to decide the council of ministers and the date of his swearing-in ceremony. The president also appointed Modi to the office of Prime Minister of India, a communique issued by the Rashtrapati Bhavan said. Kovind requested Modi to advise him about the names of others to be appointed members of the Union Council of Ministers; and indicate the date and time of the swearing-in ceremony to be held at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, it said. Modi was formally intimated when he called on the president at the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Saturday evening in his capacity as the leader of the BJP Parliamentary Party, which has majority support in the House of the People following the general election to the 17th Lok Sabha, the communique said. Earlier in the day, a delegation of the National Democratic Alliance led by BJP president Amit Shah and comprising Parkash Singh Badal, Rajnath Singh, Nitish Kumar, Ram Vilas Paswan, Sushma Swaraj, Uddhav Thakeray, Nitin Gadkari, K Palaniswami, Conrad Sangma and Neiphiu Rio, called on the president at Rashtrapati Bhavan, the communique said. A letter stating that Narendra Modi has been elected leader of the BJP Parliamentary Party was handed over to the president, it said. “Letters of support from NDA constituent parties were also handed over to the president,” the communique said. Earlier, Modi was unanimously elected leader of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance on Saturday at a meeting attended by its newly elected MPs and senior leaders in Parliament’s Central Hall. “Modi is elected the leader of the parliamentary party of 353 MPs unanimously,” BJP president Amit Shah announced after the election as Modi acknowledged the support and cheers from MPs. Top alliance leaders, including JD(U)’s Nitish Kumar, Shiv Sena’s Uddhav Thackeray and Akali Dal’s Parkash Singh Badal, extended their party’s support after Modi was elected as the leader of the BJP parliamentary party at first. Senior BJP leaders L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi were present on the dais with other alliance leaders. Shah proposed Modi’s name and former party presidents Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari seconded the proposal. Modi’s election was a mere formality as the NDA had already declared him the alliance’s prime ministerial candidate. He has led the NDA to a landslide win in the general election, with the BJP winning 303 seats, its highest ever, and its allies 50.last_img read more

Haitians caught up in food crisis receive helping hand from UN Volunteers

No Comments

29 April 2008United Nations Volunteers (UNV) working in Haiti have helped provide emergency relief to elderly and handicapped residents suffering from the current global food crisis. United Nations Volunteers (UNV) working in Haiti have helped provide emergency relief to elderly and handicapped residents suffering from the current global food crisis.Working with the Community Violence Reduction (CVR) section of the UN mission in the Caribbean nation, known as MINUSTAH, UNV assisted in providing some 1,000 elderly and handicapped people with rice and beans.Earlier this month, violent protests erupted in the capital Port-au-Prince in response to the soaring price of staple foods.In Haiti, the volunteers have focused on helping the country foster political and institutional stability, and played a pivotal role during the 2006 elections when they were the only monitors operating in parts of the Caribbean island nation.“Volunteering to save lives brings me personal satisfaction,” said Emmanuel Sannoh, UNV and team leader of the CVR section who has served with MINUSTAH since 2004.Last week, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon wrote to more than a dozen key Member States, asking for their urgent assistance in addressing the situation in Haiti, which has witnessed a rapid deterioration in socio-economic conditions that threatens to undo the gains achieved by the tiny nation, the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. read more

Great interest in new taxi licences

No Comments

first_imgMore than 8,500 applications for taxi licenses have been submitted to the country’s 13 regional authorities in the wake of the government announcing that it plans to liberalise the sector and Transport Minister Yiannis Ragousis insists that he will not give in to cabbies demands to limit the deregulation. The government has put its liberalisation plans on ice following an 18-day strike by the taxi drivers who want the number of licenses that will be issued to be linked to each city’s population. A truce in the standoff was negotiated after regional governors agreed not to issue any new permits until the government has finalised its plans. Attica Governor Yiannis Sgouros announced that all of the 8,500 applications would be rejected, pending the final legislation from the government. “Without the law determining the relevant criteria, how can we accept an application?” said Sgouros. Cabbies are concerned the total liberalisation of the sector would lead to firms or wealthy investors buying up large numbers of licenses and making it difficult for individuals to compete. Sources said that 4,000 of the 8,500 applications have been submitted by just two people. Sgouros was adamant those applications would not be accepted. Ragousis, meanwhile, was also insistent that he would not back down in his bid to deregulate the sector, which suggests that a new clash with disgruntled taxi drivers is not far off. “There will be rules but these will be liberalisation rules, not ones to do with population limits, which the taxi drivers want so nothing changes.” He also suggested that the cabbies’ argument that their profession is “over-saturated” is false.

Amazon Alexa Launches HIPAACompliant Medical Skills

No Comments

first_imgStay on target Alexa Lets You Donate School Supplies to Students in NeedAmazon Alexa Provides NHS Medical Advice in the UK Paging Dr. Alexa: Amazon is inviting select developers to create and launch HIPAA-compliant healthcare skills for its virtual assistant.Six initial commands allow consumers to receive personalized insights, post-op updates, and daily health tips; schedule same-day appointments; or check the status of mail-order prescriptions.“Voice is going to be a big part of the future in all areas of our lives, including health and health care,” Aaron Martin, chief digital officer at Providence St. Joseph Health, said in a statement.As one of the nation’s largest health systems, PSJH teamed up with Amazon Alexa to enable Seattle-based users to set up healthcare visits and manage medical appointments using only their voice.Simply say, “Alexa, open Providence (or Swedish) Health Connect,” and the AI will suggest appointment times at a clinic closest to your home. It is also possible to cancel and reschedule through Alexa.Cigna and Express Scripts also joined the lineup, offering to manage pharmacy prescriptions, engage in health improvement programs, and track wellness incentives via voice technology.“We are meeting customers where they are—in their homes, in their cars—and making it simpler to create healthier habits and daily routines,” according to Stephen Cassell, senior vice president of global brand and customer communications at Cigna.The medical insurance firm is piloting a voice skill aimed at increasing proactive health engagement; eligible employees can opt in to track personalized wellness incentives and receive daily motivational tips.Subsidiary Express Scripts, meanwhile, lets folks check a prescription order status or set notifications for when orders are received, processed, and shipped.Similarly, Livongo for Diabetes members can ask Alexa for blood glucose readings and health tips.“We believe that voice technology will have an impactful role in helping our members better manage their chronic conditions, and health in general,” Livongo President Jennifer Schneider said.“By integrating Amazon’s advanced voice technology into Livongo’s whole person platform,” Chief Product Officer Amar Kendale added, “we can offer our members another channel where they can securely access their health information and insights.”In February, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center installed Amazon Echo devices in more than 100 patient rooms, providing hands-free communication and, perhaps more importantly, a companion and window to the outside world.Amazon is taking things a step further now with its “HIPAA-eligible environment,” available to healthcare providers, payors, pharmacy benefit managers, and digital health coaching companies on an invite-only basis in the US.“In the future, we expect to enable additional developers to take advantage of this capability,” Rachel Jiang, head of Alexa health and wellness, wrote in a blog post.Interested organizations can sign up for more information.More on Geek.com:World’s First Genderless Voice Assistant Needs Your HelpWalmart Launches Voice-Enabled Grocery Shopping with Google AssistantAmazon Updates Alexa With ‘Newscaster’ Voicelast_img read more

The RMBS Outlook

No Comments

first_img The issuance of private-label residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) is expected to grow at the same pace as last year, according to Morningstar’s RMBS outlook. The ratings agency said that while it doesn’t expect rising interest rates to impact RMBS issuance, higher rates might make securitization an economically attractive alternative to selling or retaining mortgage loans for originators.The ratings agency expects the variety of mortgage types backing new RMBS to continue to expand as borrowers look for more affordable loans owing to potentially higher mortgage rates and “issuers seek to improve funding costs for various mortgage types or to diversify funding sources.” Even though it will remain historically strong, the collateral credit quality of RMBS is projected to somewhat weaken in 2019.The outlook also projected the growth in issuance of transactions backed by mortgage insurance (MI) due to the growing number of insurers embracing securitization and the potential steady demand for MI “as borrowers seek to lower down payments.”Morningstar also expects the issuance of RMBS backed by non-qualified mortgage (non-QM) loans to continue to increase as the number of borrowers with other types of debt such as student loans, seeking homeownership or more affordable mortgage loans increases. “Also, the likely slower home purchase and rate refinancing activity would allow mortgage brokers and loan officers to focus more on originating non-QM loans, which typically require more time and effort than GSE-guaranteed loans and prime jumbo loans,” the outlook indicated.It expects modest growth in the issuance of credit risk transactions backed by GSE-guaranteed loans even as the collateral composition of CRTs is likely to shift due to the growth in the share of equity cash-out loans among GSE guaranteed mortgage origination.One potential headwind that could adversely affect RMBS performance, according to the outlook, is the decline of home prices because of rising interest rates or a weaker economy. Additionally, borrowers in states with steep home prices and high local and property taxes might pay more in federal income taxes as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, “and this could weigh on their capacity to repay mortgage loans.” However, Morningstar said, strong mortgage underwriting, available credit enhancement, servicer loss mitigation, and other factors would help offset the potential negative impact of these challenges on bondholders.Click here to read the full outlook.

Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Patrick Peterson has made a name for himself as a puntreturner, as he’s taken four kicks back for touchdowns injust 11 games as a pro.However, he was drafted fifth overall because ofhis cover skills, and the fact that he has yet to reallyshow them can be a little concerning.According to ProFootballFocus.com, Peterson had arough day in Sunday’s win against the Rams, allowing sixreceptions for 74 yards. Apparently he never came close tobreaking up a pass, and has been picked on all season. Comments   Share   Indeed, Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt hasbeen trumping Peterson as the league’s best defensiverookie, and for the season Peterson has picked off apair of passes while racking up 47 tackles and eightpasses defensed. Peterson has certainly been thrown to the wolves, so tospeak, often times being asked to cover the opponent’sbest receiver. The former LSU star clearly struggled earlyon against the likes of Carolina’s Steve Smith and NewYork’s Hakeem Nicks, but seemed to be finding his footing.Has he slipped and regressed?Hard to say, and as long as he keeps scoring touchdownsfew will complain.

Fresh warnings over antibiotics overuse

No Comments

first_imgIf the current trend continues there will be more deaths from a lack of resistance to antibiotics than cancer by 2050, the Cyprus Consumer Association claimed on Wednesday as it launched a new campaign.Cyprus is the first to host a European campaign to raise awareness of the growing resistance to antibiotics which lasts until November 19.“Microbial resistance and the development and spread of resistant microbes, due to the excessive and often unjustified use of antibiotics in humans and animals, is characterised as a major problem,” an announcement said.“Antibiotics become ineffective when they are really needed, having an impact of high costs for medical care but also for the treatment of animals and other related problems.”The association warned that the impact on public health was unfavourable as the therapeutic options even for common infections have become very limited and in some cases non-existent. In Europe, infections of resistant microbes are associated with 25,000 deaths and 1.5 billion euros, due to hospitalisation costs and productivity losses per year.According to the statement, a survey conducted by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has shown that only 25 per cent of EU consumers are aware of the relationship between the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals, microbial resistance and development of resistant microbes.In Cyprus, there is definitely room for improvement. According to a European report in 2013, Cyprus topped the list of EU countries regarding the use of antibiotics in animals. Cypriot farmers were using 408 mg antibiotics per kilo of meat, a little more than Italian (370 mg/kg), Spanish (249 mg/kg) and German farmers (211 mg/kg). Swedish farmers used the least at 13.6 milligrams of antibiotics per kilo of meat on average.The campaign is in co-operation with the European Consumer Organisation started on September 4 and Cyprus is in charge for the first four days. You May LikeMyFinanceTwo Accounts Your Bank Doesn’t Want You to Know AboutMyFinanceUndoCity BeautyLift Sagging Skin And Jowls Without Surgery (Do This)City BeautyUndoProstaGenix SupplementHow To: Boost Prostate Health (Do This Daily)ProstaGenix SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Morton Buildings has 1700 employees in more than 100 branches Grafton’s office houses six employees and there also are branches in Valley City Bismarck and Moorhead The company’s existing business model and management structure isn’t expected to change the release statedThe latest economic pressures announced Thursday come as the Trump administration seeks to build international support for more aggressively confronting the rogue nation whose escalating nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities have reached what US officials consider a crisis pointThe new penalties seek to leverage the dominance of the US financial system by forcing nations foreign companies and individuals to choose whether to do business with the United States or the comparatively tiny economy of North Korea US officials acknowledged that like other sanctions these may not deter North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s drive to threaten the United States with a nuclear weapon but is aimed at slowing him downKim on Thursday reacted angrily to Trump’s remarks and actions this week calling the president a "mentally deranged US dotard" and Trump’s earlier speech at the UN "unprecedented rude nonsense" Kim said that he was now thinking hard about how to respond"I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the US pay dearly for his speech" Kim said in a statement released by the official Korean Central News Agency which also published a photo of the North Korean leader sitting at his desk holding a piece of paper"I am now thinking hard about what response he could have expected when he allowed such eccentric words to trip off his tongue Whatever Trump might have expected he will face results beyond his expectation" Kim said saying that he would "tame" Trump "with fire"On Friday Trump added the latest barb with a tweet calling Kim a "madman" who brings famine and death on North Koreans"Kim Jong Un of North Korea who is obviously a madman who doesn’t mind starving or killing his people will be tested like never before" Trump wroteSouth Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported Thursday night that the North’s foreign minister Ri Yong Ho said in New York that his country may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean to fulfill Kim’s vow to take the "highest-level" action against the United States "It could be the most powerful detonation of an H-bomb in the Pacific" Ri said "We have no idea about what actions could be taken as it will be ordered by leader Kim Jong Un" US officials believe the North carried out its first hydrogen bomb test on Sept 3 Trump’s executive order grants the Treasury Department additional authority that Trump said would help cut off international trade and financing that Kim’s dictatorship uses to support its banned weapons programs"North Korea’s nuclear program is a grave threat to peace and security in our world and it is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal rogue regime" Trump said in brief public remarks during a meeting with the leaders of South Korea and Japan to discuss strategy to confront PyongyangHe added that the United States continues to seek a "complete denuclearization of North Korea"Significantly Trump also said that Chinese President Xi Jinping had ordered Chinese banks to cease conducting business with North Korean entities Trump praised Xi calling the move "very bold" and "somewhat unexpected"China is North Korea’s chief ally and economic lifeline Some 90 percent of North Korean economic activity involves China and Chinese entities are the main avenue for North Korea’s very limited financial transactions in the global economy China is also suspected of turning a blind eye to some of the smuggling and sanctions-busting operations that have allowed Pyongyang to rapidly develop sophisticated long-range missiles despite international prohibitions on parts and technologyAll UN sanctions have to be acceptable to China which holds veto power China’s recent willingness to punish its fellow communist state signals strong disapproval of North Korea’s international provocations but China and fellow UN Security Council member Russia have also opposed some of the toughest economic measures that could be applied such as banking restrictions that would affect Chinese and other financial institutions"We continue to call on all responsible nations to enforce and implement sanctions" Trump saidTrump’s announcement came as he has sought to rally international support for confronting Pyongyang during four days of meetings here at the UN General Assembly In a speech to the world body Tuesday Trump threatened to "totally destroy" the North if necessary and referred derisively to Kim as "Rocket Man" But the president and his aides have emphasized that they are continuing to do what they can to put economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea to avoid a military conflict"We don’t want war" UN Ambassador Nikki Haley told reporters "At the same time we’re not going to run scared If for any reason North Korea attacks the United States or our allies we’re going to respond"The new executive order signals the US willingness to take a more aggressive approach to cutting off world trade with North Korea even if other countries such as China aren’t willing partners in sanctions because it would allow the United States to economically punish businesses anywhere in the worldThe executive order "opens the door for the US to unilaterally enforce a trade embargo against North Korea" said Joseph DeThomas a former State Department official who focused on North Korea and Iran and is now a professor of international affairs at Pennsylvania State University "It gives us the power to play that game if we wish to"In the past Chinese officials have objected to suggestions that the United States could punish foreign companies trading with North Korea but there are signs that China and the United States are becoming more agreeable on North Korea"The positive comments about China when [Trump] made the announcement indicates that there’s some good cooperation rather than confrontation" DeThomas saidDeThomas warned however that even if sanctions are adopted and enforced the way ahead will be difficult because North Korea may feel it has little choice given the president’s bellicosity at the United Nations but to proceed with its weapons program despite the pain of an embargo"If we stick with sanctions it’s going to be a long ugly haul with lots of humanitarian costs" DeThomas saidA White House fact sheet said that under the executive order airplanes or ships that have visited North Korea will be banned for 180 days from visiting the United States a move to crack down on illicit trade"This significantly expands Treasury’s authority to target those who enable this regime wherever they are located" Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin saidUS officials say there is still time and room for diplomacy if North Korea shows that talking could be productive Other countries including China and Russia are pressing Washington to make a greater effort toward talks and an eventual bargain that could buy Kim out of his weapons without toppling his regimeThe shape of a possible deal has been evident for years but Kim has raised the stakes and perhaps the price with his rapid development toward the capability to launch a nuclear-equipped intercontinental ballistic missile at US territoryAsked why North Korea might entertain such an international deal when Trump appears poised to undermine a similar one with Iran Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said a North Korea deal would be designed very differently"While the threat is the same – it’s nuclear weapons – the issues surrounding North Korea are very different than the issues surrounding Iran" Tillerson said Wednesday "Iran is a large nation 60 million people; North Korea is a smaller nation the hermit kingdom living in isolation Very different set of circumstances that would be the context and also the contours of an agreement with North Korea many aspects of which don’t apply between the two"In recent weeks the Security Council has approved two rounds of economic sanctions but also left room for further penalties For example the sanctions put limits on the nation’s oil imports but did not impose a full embargo as the United States has suggested it supports The Trump administration has signaled it also wants a full ban on the practice of sending North Korean workers abroad for payments that largely go to the government in Pyongyang"We are witnessing a very dangerous confrontation spiral" Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a speech to the United Nations filling in for President Vladimir Putin who skipped the forum "We resolutely condemn the nuclear missile adventures of Pyongyang in violation of Security Council resolutions But military hysteria is not just an impasse; it’s disaster There is no alternative to political and diplomatic ways of settling the nuclear situation on the Korean Peninsula"Mnuchin emphasized that "this action is in no way specifically directed at China" and he said he called Chinese officials to inform them ahead of the US announcementMnuchin also said the unilateral US action is not a rejection of separate Security Council sanctions and the international diplomacy they require Similar to unilateral US sanctions on Iran applied during the Obama administration the new US restrictions seek to leverage the power of the US financial system"Foreign financial institutions are now on notice that going forward they can choose to do business with the United States or with North Korea but not both" Mnuchin saidSitting down with South Korean President Moon Jae-in before the trilateral discussion with Japan Trump said the nations are "making a lot of progress"Moon praised Trump’s speech to the United Nations saying through a translator that "North Korea has continued to make provocations and this is extremely deplorable and this has angered both me and our people but the US has responded firmly and in a very good way"The Security Council had also applied tough new export penalties in August and Tillerson said Wednesday that there are signs those restrictions are having an economic effect"We have some indications that there are beginning to appear evidence of fuel shortages" Tillerson said in a briefing for reporters "And look we knew that these sanctions were going to take some time to be felt because we knew the North Koreans had basically stockpiled a lot of inventory early in the year when they saw the new administration coming in in anticipation of things perhaps changing So I think what we’re seeing is a combined effect of these inventories are now being exhausted and the supply coming in has been reduced"There is no sign however that economic penalties are having any effect on the behavior of the Kim regime and its calculation that nuclear tests and other provocations will ensure its protection or raise the price of any eventual settlement with the United States and other nationsTrump said the United States had been working on the North Korea problem for 25 years but he asserted that previous administrations had "done nothing which is why we are in the problem we are in today"Authors Information: David
