Dimming constitutional spirit

first_imgTo get dragged into legalities of the LG-CM turf-war in Puducherry is pointless, as the conflicting views can be supported with contradictory legal judgements on the matter. Unfortunately for the LG, the recent clarification of the Madras High Court was both, unequivocal and embarrassing in observing that incessant interference in the administration of the state government, tantamount to ‘parallel government’. The unrelenting view from the Puducherry Raj Niwas, that the gubernatorial appointment in Puducherry afforded a more interventionist role was blunted, for now. The LG was quick to publically share a contradictory judgement on the social media, of a previous Chief Justice of the Madras High Court who had earlier adjudged that ‘Unlike the President of India or the Governor of a state, the Administrator of a Union Territory has powers to act independently, irrespective of the advice given by the Council of Minister headed by the Chief Minister’. Like Puducherry, Delhi, too, has been mired in the dissonance surrounding the LG-CM disaffections on the ‘limits’. The finality on the legalese of the matter notwithstanding, it is the diminishment of Constitutional spirit by the ostensible ‘conscience keeper’ of the Constitution in the Union Territory, that is the moot point in the prevailing discourse. Also Read – Hijacking Bapu’s legacyUnlike some other gubernatorial appointees who come from the fount of deeply ideological and partisan sensibilities – the incumbent LG of Puducherry is a distinguished member of the ‘Uniformed’ fraternity, who would be well versed with the governance imperatives of rectitude, restraint, and the uniquely service-related sensitivities of not ‘stepping-out-of-line’. However, such expectations militate against the reality of instances like the LG stopping two-wheelers on the roads of Puducherry, and asking them to wear helmets. As a former cop and one-time head of traffic police in Delhi, surely the LG would be expected to have a natural proclivity and gravitation towards road-safety matters, however the backdrop of such-like ‘interferences’ had led to an unprecedented protest by the Puducherry Chief Minister and his cabinet outside the Raj Niwas, which lasted nearly a week. The immense administrative experience, knowledge, and wisdom acquired over years of administrative service herself, is expected to be imparted in a more dignified, inclusive and far-impacting way, than perhaps by policing herself. In the short run, such actions of ‘public activism’ do impress the masses who have their own justifiable angst against the perceived ineptitude of the political classes and the administration. However, beyond the optics and symbolism of ‘rolling up the sleeves’, very little is achieved on the ground. On the contrary, the opportunity to make fundamental and systemic changes are lost in the petty battle of whataboutery one-upmanship, that can be avoided, whilst still achieving a lot more than pulling up a few irresponsible motorists. Also Read – The future is here!The Puducherry LG has contextualised her activism with her disdain for the ‘rubber-stamp’ appointees, and to that extent, she has a point as Raj Bhawans have increasingly acquired a notoriety as ‘old age home’s’ for pliant and loyal geriatrics, who are not adjustable in the Central Government. However, the full import of ‘rubber-stamp’ is not just in implied inaction or disinterest – it also manifests in the equally dangerous manner if not more, when the ostensible ‘rubber-stamp’ appointees toe a blatantly partisan line, ignoring his or her appointment to the constitutional chair on account of swearing by the Constitution, and not to a political party or obligation. A certain degree of apprehension owing to the difference in political parties of the state government and that of the LG-appointing Central government, is natural. As also, the tendency of the state political classes to get emotive and voluble given their partisan instincts in the State capitals – however, the onus of maintaining sobriety in public discourse is loaded onto the gubernatorial appointee, who is expected to be the ‘bigger person’ as the apolitical custodian of constitutionality. The current diatribe in Puducherry suggests a fight for supremacy, not amongst the constitutionally mandated unequal’s, but perhaps amongst the politically driven, equals. Mainstreaming issues on social media and picking up the cudgels oneself is also suggestive of the futility of the constitutionally mandated recourses available to the LG like reporting the concerns to the President of India, or even the Home Ministry for administrative issues. Such bypass assumes the incapacity or dereliction of these high chairs to get the requisite course-corrections suggested by the LG, other than by challenging the delicately posited federal structure and spirit of the constitution, that insists on the ‘voice’ of the masses through its elected representatives. The intrinsic spirit of democracy and the Indian Constitution bestows the responsibility of governance through the elected representatives (with the public empowerment to change dispensations, with the subsequent elections) – whilst bestowing the ‘moral’ supremacy onto the ‘conscience-keepers’ to exercise their powers with morality and sensitivity, in deference to the democratic traditions. Great constitutionalists and preservers of our democratic impulses like Presidents KR Narayanan and APJ Abdul Kalam were able to bear moral pressure on the governance and politics of the day by actions like ‘returning the files for reconsideration’. Away from media glare, these giants of constitutionalism worked silently behind the scenes and ensured that the dispensation of day, stayed the course of India’s constitutional obligations. Though these constitutionalists were appointed through a process of political majority – and sometimes these individuals erred in their decision-making, but no one could ever imply any partisanship or unwarranted ‘activism’ onto these two individuals, in their constitutional conduct. These men meaningfully reversed the notions of ‘rubber stamp’ ascribed on Rashtrapatis, without taking recourse to public-spats, accusations and lowering of decorum. Constitutional institutions, appointees and the overall spirit of the Indian constitution are coming under increasing strain – this leads to the frequent questioning of the essence, letter, and definition of ‘India’. Herein, the opportunity to exemplify the lofty spirit of our constitutionalism, federalism, and our civilisational truth of civility and wisdom, especially when you have an imminently qualified and well-versed LG like in Puducherry, is a lost opportunity for the Union Territory, and for others to emulate.

Stricken by drought the Horn of Africa readies for expected flooding –

Kenya, Somalia, Tanzania and Uganda are most likely to be hit by mudslides, crop destruction, water-borne diseases and disrupted road networks, said the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), adding that Djibouti, Eritrea and Ethiopia could also be affected.“More than 23 million people in pastoral, agricultural and sub-urban communities, as well as internally displaced people and refugees in the region, are reeling from the impact of water and food shortages, pasture scarcity, conflict and insecurity,” said Emergency Relief Coordinator John Holmes.“While we cannot prevent these climatic shocks, we certainly can mitigate their disastrous effects through forward planning and the right funding from the donor community,” said Mr. Holmes, who is also the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs. Meteorologists in the Horn of Africa have forecasted that the region’s annual rainy season – from mid-October through the end of the year – will be more intense than usual due to the recurrence of the El Niño weather phenomenon, caused by a rise in temperature in the Pacific and Indian Oceans similar to those experienced in late 2006.The disappearance of vegetation as a result of the prolonged drought in much of the region is expected to worsen the effects of flooding.In Kenya, some 750,000 persons – 150,000 of whom are refugees – could be affected by heavy flooding and mudslides, and in Somalia, some 450,000 persons in the Juba and Shabelle river basins could also bear the strain. Uganda has drawn up flood contingency and evacuation plans, with the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) preparing to provide immediate support to 25,000 people, and an estimated 50,000 people in Tanzania could be directly affected if flood patterns mirror those of 2006-2007. Flood affected people in Djibouti could also suffer a deterioration of the ongoing cholera outbreak, as well as other water-borne diseases.Although the humanitarian community is undertaking flood contingency planning, funding and humanitarian access remain the most significant constraints, stressed OCHA. 16 October 2009Already in the midst of one of the worst droughts in a decade, countries in the Horn of Africa are bracing for potentially devastating flooding triggered by El Niño weather patterns, the top United Nations humanitarian official warned today. read more

Nintendo Confirms The Wiis Successor to be Unveiled at E3

first_imgA few weeks ago, rumors flew that the Nintendo Wii would get a price cut, and the following week retailers cut the price themselves in what seemed to be a response to the rumors. Now we actually know what was going on: Nintendo has confirmed that at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in June, they’ll take the wraps off of their next generation gaming console. No real details about the console have been revealed other than that we’ll see it at E3, but many people are already calling it the Wii 2 or the Wii HD, noting the fact that Nintendo is the only gaming company in the market at the moment with a console that doesn’t support HD video. Nintendo said the new console will hit store shelves in 2012. Time will tell whether the rumors of HD video, controllers with LCD displays in them, and other rumors all come true, but one thing is clear: if you want a Nintendo Wii and don’t have one, now’s a good time to find a bargain on one, regardless of what E3 brings. [via Reuters]AdChoices广告last_img read more

Plastic bag ban not likely to cross Columbia River

first_imgIt wasn’t exactly a surprise when the city of Portland officially banned single-use plastic bags in large grocery stores.It wasn’t exactly a surprise when the city of Portland officially banned single-use plastic bags in large grocery stores.The idea had been kicked around in discussions for more than a year before city commissioners approved the ban July 21 — and action occurred only after the Oregon Legislature couldn’t make a statewide ban happen. Portland’s ban takes effect Oct. 15.Don’t expect the ubiquitous plastic bags to disappear in Vancouver anytime soon. They’re actually becoming more of a headache for the Clark County recycling program, said county waste reduction specialist Rob Guttridge.“We try to really make it easy to recycle,” he said. “Unfortunately, that makes it easy to put things in the recycling that shouldn’t be there.”The bags most often cause problems by gumming up the county’s sorting machines, Guttridge said, noting plastic film tends to wrap itself around the rollers used to separate items picked up from curbside recycling bins. Recyclable items such as cardboard, for example, are not acceptable if they’re wrapped in plastic, he said. The Portland ban targets grocery stores with gross annual sales of $2 million or more. Two of Clark County’s most prevalent grocers, Safeway and Fred Meyer, fall into that category. But representatives of both companies said they have no plans for a larger change outside Portland.last_img read more

Dalai Lama says Buddha would have helped Myanmars Muslims

first_imgDalai LamaThe Dalai Lama has spoken out for the first time about the Rohingya refugee crisis, saying Buddha would have helped Muslims fleeing violence in Buddhist-majority Myanmar.Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have arrived in Bangladesh in recent weeks after violence flared in neighbouring Myanmar, where the stateless Muslim minority has endured decades of persecution.The top Buddhist leader is the latest Nobel peace laureate to speak out against the violence, which the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar says may have killed more than 1,000 people, most of them Rohingya.“Those people who are sort of harassing some Muslims, they should remember Buddha,” the Dalai Lama told journalists who asked him about the crisis on Friday evening.“He would definitely give help to those poor Muslims. So still I feel that. So very sad.”Myanmar’s population is overwhelmingly Buddhist and there is widespread hatred for the Rohingya, who are denied citizenship and labelled illegal “Bengali” immigrants.Buddhist nationalists, led by firebrand monks, have operated a long Islamophobic campaign calling for them to be pushed out of the country.Myanmar’s de facto civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been condemned for her refusal to intervene in support of the Rohingya, including by fellow Nobel laureates Malala Yousafzai and Desmond Tutu.Archbishop Tutu, who became the moral voice of South Africa after helping dismantle apartheid there, last week urged her to speak out.“If the political price of your ascension to the highest office in Myanmar is your silence, the price is surely too steep,” Tutu said in a statement.last_img read more

New polymer improves power output of triboelectric nanogenerators

first_img As computerized devices have grown smaller, it has become apparent that the natural progression is for some of them to evolve to an embedded form. Toting a phone around is useful, but a better approach might be one that doesn’t require holding or otherwise keeping track of it. That leads to the problem of how to attach and power such devices. While work continues toward bendable devices that can be attached to skin or clothes, other research involves charging such devices using various kinds of generators—some might capture the energy expended in body movement, for example. Others might capture electricity that is generated by movement between objects or material, i.e., static electricity. Such devices are called triboelectric nanogenerators. Unfortunately, such work to date has led to products that are not capable of generating enough charge to power the devices that would rely on them. In this new effort, the researchers in Korea have found a way to improve power output by replacing one of its basic materials with a new polymer.To create and capture the power in static electricity, friction is generated between two materials, which results in the release of electrons that are absorbed by another material. Research into using such devices centers on the materials that are used, but thus far, it has been difficult to find materials that create a lot of charge but do not wear out quickly, and have uniformity of contact humidity resistance. The new polymer, the researchers report, is able to accept more charges from an electrode, which increases power output. The new polymer reportedly doubled the dielectric constant and also doubled the density of the charge—the researchers found power output to be 20 times higher than other devices currently being developed.The group acknowledges that more work needs to be done to address other issues with triboelectric nanogenerators, but believe their work will lead to a useable product someday soon. (Phys.org)—A team of researchers with members from several institutions in South Korea has developed a new polymer that is able to improve the power output of triboelectric nanogenerators. In their paper published on the open access site Science Advances, the researchers describe the new polymer and how well it works when used in triboelectric nanogenerators. Journal information: Science Advances © 2017 Phys.org New fabric uses sun and wind to power devices More information: Robust nanogenerators based on graft copolymers via control of dielectrics for remarkable output power enhancement, Science Advances  26 May 2017: Vol. 3, no. 5, e1602902 , DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1602902 , http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/5/e1602902.fullAbstractA robust nanogenerator based on poly(tert-butyl acrylate) (PtBA)–grafted polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) copolymers via dielectric constant control through an atom-transfer radical polymerization technique, which can markedly increase the output power, is demonstrated. The copolymer is mainly composed of α phases with enhanced dipole moments due to the π-bonding and polar characteristics of the ester functional groups in the PtBA, resulting in the increase of dielectric constant values by approximately twice, supported by Kelvin probe force microscopy measurements. This increase in the dielectric constant significantly increased the density of the charges that can be accumulated on the copolymer during physical contact. The nanogenerator generates output signals of 105 V and 25 μA/cm2, a 20-fold enhancement in output power, compared to pristine PVDF–based nanogenerator after tuning the surface potential using a poling method. The markedly enhanced output performance is quite stable and reliable in harsh mechanical environments due to the high flexibility of the films. On the basis of these results, a much faster charging characteristic is demonstrated in this study.center_img Explore further Photographs of a flexible PVDF-Gn film after it was peeled off and a PVDF-Gn–based TENG.

72 tons of food aid for quakestricken Guatemala WFP

first_imgNo related posts. GUATEMALA CITY – The World Food Program has begun distributing some 72 tons of emergency food aid to help victims of last week’s powerful earthquake, officials at the international agency said Saturday.“We are working diligently to continue giving an immediate response to the needs of people in need of shelter,” Anne Valand, an official with the United Nations-run group, said in a statement.The WFP said the food aimed to help the Central American country’s 13,000 quake victims, many of whose homes were damaged and lives disrupted by the Nov. 7 quake off the coast of western Guatemala.Forty-four people died in the magnitude-7.4 quake, making it the country’s most violent seismic event since 1976, when almost 23,000 people perished in an earthquake. The same area was hit by a magnitude-6.2 aftershock three days later.The food aid included corn, beans, cooking oil and enriched flour, said the WFP, which said the staples were meant to tide over needy families for about 10 days.

Nike continues esports push with league partnershi

first_imgNike continues esports push with league partnership in China AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Nike has made another push into the esports market, partnering with China’s premier “League of Legends” circuit to become its official provider of apparel and footwear.The traditional sports brand announced a four-year deal Thursday with Legends Pro League in China, giving Nike a presence with one of the most watched esports leagues in the world. The move comes after Nike tabbed Chinese “League of Legends” player Jian “Uzi” Zihao as its first esports ambassador in October and used him in a marketing campaign alongside LeBron James.It’s a promising sign for “League of Legends” publisher Riot Games, which revealed concerns over revenues for its esports leagues last summer despite massive global popularity — the league reported 99.6 million unique viewers for its world championship match last fall, just shy of the 100.7 million that tuned in for this year’s Super Bowl.Major advertising partners had been hard to come by, but Riot has signed deals with Nike and Mastercard in the past six months, creating new streams of revenue with non-endemic brands even after the company contended with backlash over claims it has fostered a sexist culture last summer.Nike will design, produce and distribute jerseys and footwear for all 16 LPL teams and will aid in esports science research with customized physical training programs for gamers.Similar apparel deals have become common between sports brands and individual esports teams, and the Overwatch League recently added Fanatics as its official apparel provider, but the Nike-LPL partnership is the most prestigious pairing to date and yet another high watermark for the esports boom.Terms of the Nike deal were not disclosed.___More AP esports: https://apnews.com/Esports and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsJake Seiner, The Associated Presscenter_img by Jake Seiner, The Associated Press Posted Feb 28, 2019 9:07 am PDTlast_img read more
