Accept resignations of MLAs at once Bihar Speaker urges Ktaka counterpart

first_imgAccept resignations of MLAs at once: Bihar Speaker urges K’taka counterpartBihar Assembly Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary on Friday voiced disapproval over the “delay” on part of his Karnataka counterpart KR Ramesh Kumar in taking a decision on the resignations of MLAs of the ruling Congress-JD(S) coalition in the southern state.advertisement Next Press Trust of India PatnaJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 00:14 IST Karnataka Assembly Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar (ANI)Bihar Assembly Speaker Vijay Kumar Chaudhary on Friday voiced disapproval over the “delay” on part of his Karnataka counterpart K R Ramesh Kumar in taking a decision on the resignations of MLAs of the ruling Congress-JD(S) coalition in the southern state.”The matter has been unnecessarily allowed to snowball the Speaker (of Karnataka) indeed had no option when the members had met him personally and tendered their resignations,” Chaudhary said in the release issued by the Vidhan Sabha secretariat here.”Delay on part of the Speaker is surprising. It appears he has been thinking in terms of getting the members disqualified on ground of their defying the party whip. However, their resignations have preceded issuing of any whip by their parties and such a course of action by the Speaker would not have been in accordance with norms,” Chaudhary said.He said defiance of whip would have made no difference as action taken under the 10th Schedule of Constitution (anti-defection law) also has the same effect, that of a member being disqualified.”The delay has led to a situation wherein the matter has reached the Supreme Court and the action of the assembly Speaker has been subjected to judicial scrutiny… instances like these lower the dignity of the legislature and hamper its credibility. It would be better for the Speaker to accept the resignations without any delay. This would enhance his stature and protect the dignity of the legislature,” the Bihar Assembly Speaker added.The Supreme Court Friday restrained the Karnataka Speaker from taking any decision till Tuesday on the resignation and disqualification of 10 rebel MLAs.The 10 rebel MLAs moved the apex court alleging that the Speaker was not accepting their resignations.They are: Pratap Gouda Patil, Ramesh Jarkiholi, Byrati Basavaraj, B C Patil, S T Somashekhar, Arbail Shivaram Hebbar, Mahesh Kumathalli, K Gopalaiah, A H Vishwanath and Narayana Gowda.ALSO READ | Kumaraswamy wants floor test, SC asks Speaker to not act on resignations | All that happenedALSO WATCH | Kumaraswamy trust vote offer a googly or full toss?For the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

first_img {{category}} {{time}} {{title}} Tennis 4h ago Vintage Federer holds off Nadal to reach Wimbledon final Related News Tennis 23h ago Factbox: Rafa Nadal versus Roger Federer Related Newscenter_img After losing to Novak Djokovic in the 2011 final, Nadal has never contested a title decider on Centre Court, suffering shock losses to the likes of Lukas Rosol, Dustin Brown and Gilles Muller, not to mention Nick Kyrgios.Last year he was close, losing an epic semi to Djokovic when victory would have left him facing an exhausted Kevin Anderson in the final — a virtual open goal.This year Nadal was irritated by being dropped to three in the seedings for this year’s tournament, despite being ranked two — meaning he would likely have to beat both Federer and Djokovic to get his hands back on the Challenge Cup.That, along with a stormy second-round win over Kyrgios, fuelled his fire and the only set he dropped in a marauding run to the semi-final was against the maverick Australian.Most observers marked him down as favourite against eight-time champion Federer — especially with a 24-15 career record, a 10-3 advantage in Grand Slam play and a 4-0 record in semi-finals at the majors.But Federer made a nonsense of such predictions with a vintage display, largely outplaying the Mallorcan in a 7-6(3) 1-6 6-3 6-4 victory on a spellbound Centre Court.FRUSTRATIONWith Djokovic awaiting in the final it would have still been a tall order for Nadal to claim his third Wimbledon crown and move to 19 Grand Slams in total — one behind Federer.At 33, Nadal knows he may not get many more chances and he could not hide his frustration on Friday.”I created another opportunity to be in another final of a Grand Slam. Just have to accept that was not my day,” he said.”I played a great event. Today is sad because for me I know chances are not forever. Last year I had chances. I had another one, and I was not able to convert to win one more time here.”Nadal admitted he was disappointed with his performance, despite playing his part in some spellbinding passages of play.”I didn’t play as good as I did in the previous rounds, and he played well. So he deserves it,” Nadal said of only his fourth loss in 14 Grand Slam clashes with Federer.”He was doing a lot of things well. Honestly, I didn’t have the great feelings that I had the other days. I was not able to open the court as the other days.” (Reporting by Martyn Herman; Editing by Christian Radnedge) LONDON (Reuters) – Rewarding as it was for Rafael Nadal to become the only player to win the same Grand Slam 12 times by chalking up his dozen at last month’s French Open, the Spaniard arrived at Wimbledon this year like a man on a mission.In the end, however, it became mission impossible as he lost to inspired Roger Federer in Friday’s blockbuster semi-final.Not since 2010, two years after his epic final triumph over Federer proved the king of clay had mastered grass, has the Spaniard been the last man standing at Wimbledon.Since that win over Tomas Berdych it has not been a particularly happy hunting ground for the Mallorcan.

NEW YORK Reuters Jailed American financier Jef

first_imgNEW YORK (Reuters) – Jailed American financier Jeffrey Epstein made payments to two potential witnesses seeking to influence them in the child sex trafficking case against him late last year, prosecutors said late on Friday.In a filing in Manhattan federal court, prosecutors said Epstein wired a total of $350,000 to the two individuals, who were not named. They said they learned of the payments through records they obtained from a financial institution, which was not identified.Epstein’s lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Epstein, 66, was arrested on July 6 at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, where he had returned on his private plane from Paris. He has pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking and conspiracy and could face up to 45 years in prison.

They said he paid $250,000 in December to another person identified in the agreement as a possible co-conspirator and employee.The payments were made shortly after the Miami Herald began publishing a series of articles about Epstein, who was known for socializing with politicians and royalty.”This course of action, and in particular its timing, suggests the defendant was attempting to further influence co-conspirators who might provide information against him in light of the recently re-emerging allegations,” the prosecutors said.A hearing on Epstein’s bail request is scheduled for Monday morning.

Golf 26 Apr 2019 Golf Stallings and Mullin

first_img Golf 26 Apr 2019 Golf – Stallings and Mullinax take early lead in rainy New Orleans U.S. President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency for Louisiana, and the region’s oil production was scaled back by nearly 60 percent as energy companies evacuated offshore drilling facilities. A performance scheduled for Sunday by the Rolling Stones at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, which served as an emergency shelter during the Hurricane Katrina flood catastrophe of 2005, was postponed until Monday.The impending storm was widely seen as a key test of the fortified flood defences put in place following Katrina, which inundated much of the city and killed some 1,800 people. Barry is expected to cross the coastline southwest of New Orleans on Saturday morning. It is forecast to reach Category-1 hurricane strength by then, with winds of at least 74 mph (119 kph), the National Weather Service said.GRAPHIC – New Orleans and its levees: https://tmsnrt.rs/2jEdGotDANGEROUS AND LIFE-THREATENINGThe storm’s flood potential, rather than its high winds, posed the greatest danger to the low-lying metropolitan landscape of New Orleans, a city virtually surrounded on all sides by rising waters.”Tropical Storm Barry is a dangerous and life-threatening storm,” Weather Service meteorologist Benjamin Schott said at a news conference. “Major to … record flooding will be possible.” Authorities were keeping a particularly watchful eye on the levee system built to contain the lower Mississippi River, which winds through the heart of New Orleans and was already well above flood stage from months of heavy upstream rainfall over the Midwest.A coastal storm surge into the mouth of the Mississippi is expected to push its crest to 19 feet (5.79 m) in New Orleans on Saturday, the highest level since 1950 and dangerously close to the top of the city’s levees. The brunt of Barry was expected to skirt the western edge of New Orleans, avoiding a direct hit. But Mayor LaToya Cantrell said 48 hours of heavy downpours could overwhelm pumps designed to purge streets and storm drains of excess water.”There is no system in the world that can handle that amount of rainfall in such a short period,” Cantrell said on Twitter.New Orleans was already saturated after thunderstorms drenched the city with a foot of rain on Wednesday.”If it’s worse than the other day, it’d be the worst week since Katrina,” said musician Robert Harris, 61, polishing his trombone while sitting in a folding chair on a sidewalk.FLOODGATES AND LEVEESWhile street flooding seemed probable, officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers insisted that significant breaching of the 20-foot-tall levees in New Orleans was unlikely. All levee floodgates were being closed, along with a giant surge barrier erected after Katrina.The chance of overtopping levees seemed greater farther downstream, where the levee walls are lower. The level of Lake Pontchartrain, an estuary on the city’s northern flank, rose by 3 feet on Friday, triggering the closure of a flood gate on a canal that breached during Katrina, said Derrick Boese, chief administrator for the local flood control agency. Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for areas of Plaquemines Parish beyond the levees southeast of the city and for low-lying communities in Jefferson Parish, to the southwest.New Orleans residents planning to ride out the storm flocked to supermarkets for bottled water, ice, snacks and beer, thronging grocery stores in such numbers that some ran out of shopping carts. Throughout the city, motorists left cars parked on the raised median strips of roadways hoping the extra elevation would protect them from flood damage.City residents were asked to remain indoors after 8 p.m. on Friday.Larry Gumpert, the 74-year-old owner of a pest-control company, said he planned to hunker down at home, cooking and catching up on household chores.”If all the predictions come true, we’re going to see major street flooding,” Gumpert said. “The Army Corps has spent time, money and energy trying to fortify the city. This is a good test of what they have accomplished since Katrina. We’ll see.” (Reporting by Collin Eaton and Kathy Finn; Additional reporting by Gabriella Borter in New York and Rich McKay in Atlanta; Writing by Scott Malone and Steve Gorman; Editing by David Gregorio, Cynthia Osterman and Daniel Wallis) World 6h ago Storm Barry’s threat to New Orleans heightened by climate change – scientists NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) – City officials warned New Orleans residents on Friday to secure their homes, stock up on supplies and prepare to huddle indoors with Tropical Storm Barry poised to make landfall as the first Atlantic hurricane of 2019.Barry’s maximum sustained winds were clocked at 65 miles per hour (100 kph) as it churned through the northern Gulf of Mexico towards Louisiana. Meteorologists warned that torrential rains – as much as 2 feet (60 cm) in some places – are likely to unleash severe flooding.While New Orleans authorities refrained from ordering evacuations and advised residents to shelter in place instead, tourism officials reported an exodus of hotel guests checking out early on Friday. Some airlines, including British Airways, have cancelled outbound flights from the city through Saturday.Mandatory evacuations were imposed in flood-prone coastal areas of two neighbouring parishes south of the city.

first_img Cycling 11h ago Nibali not giving up on Tour ambitions just yet – coach Golf 6h ago Wiesberger cards career-best 61 to share Scottish Open lead Golf 24h ago Golf – Dream start drives Diaz to John Deere lead (Reuters) – It was another day, another 62 on the PGA Tour as Jhonattan Vegas became the latest player to post the score en route to a one-stroke lead after the second round of the John Deere Classic on Friday.It was the sixth round in succession in which someone has managed 62, a reflection not just of the quality of play on the tour but also relatively easy conditions. The nine-under effort left Vegas a shot ahead of American Andrew Landry (65) at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois.”A phenomenal round,” Venezuelan Vegas told Golf Channel after posting a 13-under 129 halfway total. AdChoices广告”I felt absolutely in control today. Hit my irons really well, something I’ve been missing all year. It’s been a while since I had a good round like this.”American Lucas Glover, a former U.S. Open champion, had an albatross at the par-five 10th, where he used a three-iron from 255 yards.The feat helped Glover to a 64 that hoisted him within two shots of Vegas.First round leader Roberto Diaz of Mexico, who had 62 on Thursday, double-bogeyed his final hole for a 73, plunging six shots off the pace.The highest placed finisher on Sunday not already exempt to next week’s British Open will punch the final ticket to Royal Portrush.Vegas and Landry both have that opportunity.Vegas, 34, a three-times PGA Tour winner, finished equal third at the prestigious Players Championship in March but has struggled recently, missing three cuts in his past four starts before this week.”I found something really good on the range last night and carried it out onto the round,” he said.”I’ve been struggling with my ball-striking all year, decided to re-set my posture and it was magic.” (Reporting by Andrew Both in Cary, North Carolina; Editing by Ian Ransom) Related News Related News {{category}} {{time}} {{title}}last_img read more

National

first_imgNational United Nations, Updated: Recommended for you India lifted 271 million people out of poverty between 2006 and 2016, recording the fastest reductions in the multidimensional poverty index values during the period with strong improvements in areas such as “assets, cooking fuel, sanitation and nutrition,” a report by the United Nations said. The 2019 global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) from the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) was released on Thursday. The report said that in the 101 countries studied — 31 low income, 68 middle income and 2 high income – 1.3 billion people are “multidimensionally poor”, which means that poverty is defined not simply by income, but by a number of indicators, including poor health, poor quality of work and the threat of violence. The report identifies 10 countries, with a combined population of around 2 billion people, to illustrate the level of poverty reduction, and all of them have shown statistically significant progress towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 1, namely ending poverty “in all its forms, everywhere”. The 10 countries are Bangladesh, Cambodia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru and Vietnam. The report said that within these 10 countries, data shows that 270 million people moved out of multidimensional poverty from one survey to the next. “This progress was largely driven by South Asia. In India, there were 271 million fewer people in poverty in 2016 than in 2006, while in Bangladesh the number dropped by 19 million between 2004 and 2014,” it said. The report noted that of the 10 selected countries for which changes over time were analysed, India and Cambodia reduced their MPI values the fastest — and they did not leave the poorest groups behind. India’s MPI value reduced from 0.283 in 2005-06 to 0.123 in 2015-16. Noting the examples of pro-poor reduction, where the poorest regions improved the fastest, the report said that Jharkhand in India reduced the incidence of multidimensional poverty from 74.9% in 2005-06 to 46.5% in 2015-16. Mondol Kiri and Rattanak Kiri in Cambodia reduced it from 71.0% to 55.9% between 2010 and 2014. Ethiopia, India and Peru significantly reduced deprivations in all 10 indicators, namely nutrition, sanitation, child mortality, drinking water, years of schooling, electricity, school attendance, housing, cooking fuel and assets. In 2005-2006, the population in India living in multidimensional poverty stood at about 640 million people (55.1%) and this reduced to 369 million people (27.9%) living in poverty in 2015-16. India saw significant reductions in number of people who are multidimensionally poor and deprived in each of the 10 indicators over this time period. India reduced deprivation in nutrition from 44.3% in 2005-06 to 21.2% in 2015-16, child mortality dropped from 4.5% to 2.2%, people deprived of cooking fuel reduced from 52.9% to 26.2%, deprivation in sanitation from 50.4% to 24.6%, those deprived of drinking water reduced from 16.6% to 6.2 %. Further more people gained access to electricity as deprivation was reduced from 29.1% to 8.6%, housing from 44.9% to 23.6% and assets deprivation from 37.6% to 9.5%. The trends in these 10 countries also shine a light on where poverty reduction has been uneven, despite the good progress overall, it said.“In all 10 countries rural areas are poorer than urban areas. In Cambodia, Haiti, India and Peru poverty reduction in rural areas outpaced that in urban areas — demonstrating pro-poor development — and in Bangladesh and Democratic Republic of the Congo poverty fell at the same speed in rural and urban areas, it added. The report also showed that children suffer poverty more intensely than adults and are more likely to be deprived in all 10 of the MPI indicators, lacking essentials such as clean water, sanitation, adequate nutrition or primary education. Child poverty fell markedly faster than adult poverty in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Haiti, India and Peru. But children fell further behind in Ethiopia, and their progress—together with that of adults—stalled in Democratic Republic of the Congo and Pakistan. Globally, of the 1.3 billion people who are multidimensionally poor, more than two-thirds of them—886 million— now live in middle-income countries. A further 440 million live in low-income countries. Even more staggering, worldwide, one in three children is multidimensionally poor, compared to one in six adults. That means that nearly half of the people living in multidimensional poverty — 663 million — are children, with the youngest children bearing the greatest burden. The vast majority of these children, around 85 %, live in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, split roughly equally between the two regions. The report underscored that the traditional concept of poverty is outdated, demonstrating more clearly than ever that labelling countries – or even households – as rich and poor is an oversimplification.“To fight poverty, one needs to know where poor people live. They are not evenly spread across a country, not even within a household,” UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner said. The report also highlighted a positive trend that those furthest behind are moving up the fastest.

During the India segment of her speech Ms. Pelosi praised the diaspora and Mr. Modi.Ms. Pelosi, however, also praised Mr. Modi’s oratorical skills, calling a speech he gave during her visit to India with former U.S. President Barack Obama, “one of the most fantastic speeches” she had ever heard.Ms. Pelosi dwelt on the values that anchored ties between India and the U.S., speaking of Mahatma Gandhi’s influence on the civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.and also called satyagraha “the spiritual gift that India has given to the United States” and said it was one of the strong ties, in terms of values, that connected the two countries.”I became completely worshipping at the shrine of Mahatma Gandhi,” Ms Pelosi said, after she read a book about Gandhiji as a child . As per Ms Pelosi’s account, a nun at her Catholic school had said to Ms . Pelosi , “Who do you think you are? Mahatma Gandhi? ” when she went to school wearing a hat.
