Subrata Bakshi raises issues related to polls in letter to CEC

first_imgKolkata: Senior Trinamool Congress leader Subrata Bakshi wrote to the Chief Election Commissioner on Wednesday, raising various issues related to the Lok Sabha elections.In his letter, Bakshi pointed out that hoardings and banners have been put up in various places across the city, congratulating the Armed Forces of the country for dismantling terrorist installations. However, he alleged that the BJP leaders in the state have placed such hoardings with political interest in mind. “They are trying to gain political leverage out of the aerial strike conducted by the Indian Air Force (IAF). The banners that have the pictures of the armed forces also carry BJP’s party symbol and some prominent leaders of the party,” he wrote. According to Bakshi, these posters and banners have been found to be in violation of the general advisory to the political parties by the Election Commission of India (ECI). Bakshi also brought to the notice of the commission as to how BJP is misusing the incident of the airstrike with an intention of influencing voters and urged the Chief Election Commissioner to take appropriate action in this regard. It may be mentioned that Election Commission officials have so far removed many banners and hoardings carrying the photographs of Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, from various places. A drive has been going on to spot such banners that are still up in different parts of the state. Some CPI-M and Congress leaders on Wednesday met the senior Election Commission officials at the CEO’s office, demanding a free and fair election. They also urged the commission to identify the sensitive booths, if any, in the state. A senior ECI official is expected to visit the city later this week to supervise the situation.last_img read more

Millennial Money 3 things that change when you own a home

You signed the papers, got the keys and opened the front door. Now, that quaint little place is all yours.But more freedom comes with more responsibility. A lot changes once you’re a homeowner. Here’s how to prepare for a few of the adjustments — emotionally and financially.1. YOU THINK ABOUT MONEY MORE OFTENIdeally, you start thinking about money long before you sign the papers for your home.Say a mortgage on your dream house would be $2,000 a month, but your current rent is $1,500. You should live at the new expense level to test it out before you buy, says Marianela Collado, CEO and senior financial advisor at Tobias Financial Advisors in Florida.For example, you could try putting the $500 difference into savings for several months to see if you can manage.“You give yourself time to adjust to living within the new cost of housing,” Collado says. “This way you start getting a feel for what the new budget is going to look like.”For an even more complete picture of your new budget, go a step further. Collado recommends calling local companies before buying a house so you can gauge how much you should expect to pay for monthly bills like water and electricity.Your money mindfulness will need to continue after you’ve settled into your house and placed a welcome mat on the porch.A budget needs to be revisited regularly, especially since you can expect home-related expenses to go up over time. It’s crucial to have flexibility in your budget to cover an increase in utility expenses or a financial emergency.“Financial planning is never a set it and forget it,” Collado says. “It’s so fluid. Life changes.”2. YOU NEED THINGS YOU DIDN’T BEFORENew homeowners will buy things they never needed before. That may include items such as a screwdriver set, claw hammer, pliers, smart thermostat and smart lighting, according to Jordan Ribelin, a Lowe’s spokesperson.You’ll probably need a basic toolkit, water shut-off tool and plunger, too, says Danny Lipford, a national home improvement expert and host of “Today’s Homeowner” on television and radio.These are relatively minor, but there are big expenses, too. In an apartment, you may not have needed to purchase a washer, dryer or refrigerator because they were supplied for you. And you probably didn’t need a lawn mower.Depending on what you already own, expect to buy appliances for your new place. Start setting aside money for these items while you’re saving for a down payment and closing costs. And keep an eye out for sales and deals.But don’t make major purchases until you move in, advises Rianka R. Dorsainvil , CFP, founder of Your Greatest Contribution , a fee-only financial planning firm. That’s because you want your debt-to-income ratio to be as low as possible at closing.“After you purchase the home and you’ve slept in it one night, do what you want,” Dorsainvil says. “Buy the furniture. Finance it if you need to and (if) you can afford it.”3. YOU MANAGE TIME DIFFERENTLYOnce you’ve officially moved and sent out your change of address announcements, you’ll quickly realize you’re responsible for upkeep. That means you’re on the hook when the water heater breaks or the air conditioner goes out.It’s not just repairs, either. Lipford points out other expenses like yard work and pest control. And for maintenance, you have two options: handle things yourself or hire someone to do it.“You really have less free time if you’re going to do items yourself,” Lipford says. “Or if you’re going to hire it done, then you have less available income.”Managing a home is a financial balancing act, but you can view this added responsibility as a source of pride. Homeownership isn’t right for everyone, but for those who choose it, the experience is unparalleled.“For most people, it’s just a gratifying experience when you go, ‘This is my house. This is one environment that I can truly control. I can make it bright. I can make it dark. I can make it cold. I can make it hot.’ You can’t do that everywhere you go in every aspect of your life. So from that standpoint, there’s nothing like it,” Lipford says._________________________________This column was provided to The Associated Press by the personal finance website NerdWallet.

UN human rights body criticizes restrictions on free expression

The committee also said counter-terrorism measures, including laws that outlaw acts that allegedly “encourage” or “justify” terrorism, “should be clearly defined to ensure that they do not lead to an unnecessary or disproportionate interference with freedom of expression;” and laws against defamation of public officials and heads of State “should not provide for more severe penalties solely on the basis of the identity of the person that may have been impugned.” The committee’s report, entitled General Comment, is an interpretation of the 1966 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) which has 167 States parties. The UN Human Rights Committee is an independent body tasked with supervising compliance with the ICCPR. “Prohibitions of displays of lack of respect for a religion or other belief system, including blasphemy laws, are incompatible with the covenant,” except in specific circumstances, it said, and States “should not prohibit criticism of institutions, such as the army or the administration.”The committee said that so-called “memory laws,” which it defined as “laws that penalize the expression of opinions about historical facts,” are also “ incompatible with the obligations that the covenant imposes on States parties in relation to the respect for freedom of opinion and expression.”“General Comment is a comprehensive response to numerous requests from lawmakers, judges, prosecutors, lawyers, rights defenders and even journalists asking for clarification on many of the issues covered by the rights to freedom of expression and opinion,” said committee member Michael O’Flaherty, the principal drafter of the report. “It is a strong reaffirmation of the central importance for all human rights of the freedom of expression and sets out the very strict parameters within which the right can be restricted by States.” “Freedom of expression is a necessary condition for the realization of the principles of transparency and accountability that are, in turn, essential for the promotion and protection of human rights,” the report said. “States parties should put in place effective measures to protect against attacks aimed at silencing those exercising their right to freedom of expression.” 28 July 2011The United Nations Human Rights Committee has issued a commentary on freedom of expression that says anti-blasphemy laws and restrictions on criticism of governments are incompatible with existing norms and that free expression is essential for the protection of human rights, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) reported today. read more

IRS apologizes for inappropriately targeting conservative political groups in 2012 election

IRS apologizes for inappropriately targeting conservative political groups in 2012 election WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service apologized Friday for what it acknowledged was “inappropriate” targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status.IRS agents singled out dozens of organizations for additional reviews because they included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their exemption applications, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups. In some cases, groups were asked for lists of donors, which violates IRS policy in most cases, she said.The agency — led at the time by a Bush administration appointee — blamed low-level employees, saying no high-level officials were aware. But that wasn’t good enough for Republicans in Congress, who are conducting several investigations and asked for more.“I call on the White House to conduct a transparent, government-wide review aimed at assuring the American people that these thuggish practices are not under way at the IRS or elsewhere in the administration against anyone, regardless of their political views,” said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.White House spokesman Jay Carney declared it was indeed inappropriate for the IRS to target tea party groups. But he brushed aside questions about whether the White House itself would investigate.Instead, Carney said the administration expects a thorough investigation by the Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration. The inspector general has been looking into the issue since last summer, and his report is expected to come out next week, the IG’s office said Friday.Carney said he did not know when the White House first learned that tea party groups were being targeted.Lerner acknowledged it was wrong for the agency to target groups based on political affiliation.“That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive and it was inappropriate. That’s not how we go about selecting cases for further review,” Lerner said at a conference sponsored by the American Bar Association.“The IRS would like to apologize for that,” she added.Lerner said the practice was initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati and was not motivated by political bias. Agency officials found out about the practice last year and moved to correct it, the IRS said in a statement. The statement did not specify when officials found out.About 75 groups were inappropriately targeted. None had their tax-exempt status revoked, Lerner said.The IRS is an independent agency within the Treasury Department that enforces the nation’s tax laws. Revelations that the agency was targeting political groups because they were affiliated with a movement that is critical of President Barack Obama could become a new headache for the White House.“The admission by the Obama administration that the Internal Revenue Service targeted political opponents echoes some of the most shameful abuses of government power in 20th century American history,” said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio.Many conservative groups complained during the campaign that they were being harassed by the IRS. They accused the agency of frustrating their attempts to become tax exempt by sending them lengthy, intrusive questionnaires.The forms, which the groups have made available, sought information about group members’ political activities, including details of their postings on social networking websites and about family members.IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman told Congress in March 2012 that the IRS was not targeting groups based on politics.“There’s absolutely no targeting. This is the kind of back and forth that happens to people” who apply for tax-exempt status, Shulman told a House Ways and Means subcommittee.The IRS said senior leaders were not aware that specific groups were being targeted at the time of the hearing.“While we acknowledged centralization of these applications last year, the IRS did not acknowledge the use of names as part of the process earlier because the details were not initially known to senior leadership and (the inspector general) has been reviewing the situation,” the IRS said in a statement. “Their work is now far enough along that it was appropriate to address the issue when it came up during (Friday’s) tax conference.”Shulman was appointed by President George W. Bush. His 6-year term ended in November. President Barack Obama has yet to nominate a successor. The agency is now being run by acting Commissioner Steven Miller.Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., chairman of the Ways and Means oversight subcommittee, requested a trove of documents from the IRS on Friday, including all communications containing the words “tea party” and “patriot.”House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., said Friday he will hold a hearing on the matter has not yet set a date.“The IRS absolutely must be non-partisan in its enforcement of our tax laws,” Camp said. “We will hold the IRS accountable for its actions.”House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have also promised investigations.Treasury spokesman Anthony Coley said the department will support the inspector general’s investigation.“The Treasury Department expects all individuals and organizations to be treated fairly by the IRS. Anything less is inappropriate and unacceptable.”There has been a surge of politically active groups claiming tax-exempt status in recent elections — conservative and liberal. Among the highest profile are Republican Karl Rove’s group, Crossroads GPS, and the liberal Moveon.org.These groups claim tax-exempt status under section 501 (c) (4) of the federal tax code, which is for social welfare groups. Unlike other charitable groups, these organizations are allowed to participate in political activities but their primary activity must be social welfare.That determination is up to the IRS.Lerner said the number of groups filing for this tax-exempt status more than doubled from 2010 to 2012, to more than 3,400. To handle the influx, the IRS centralized its review of these applications in an office in Cincinnati.Lerner said this was done to develop expertise among staffers and consistency in their reviews. As part of the review, staffers look for signs that groups are participating in political activity. If so, IRS agents take a closer look to make sure that politics isn’t the group’s primary activity.As part of this process, agents in Cincinnati came up with a list of things to look for in an application. As part of the list, they included the words, “tea party” and “patriot,” Lerner said.“It’s the line people that did it without talking to managers,” Lerner told The AP. “They’re IRS workers, they’re revenue agents.”In all, about 300 groups were singled out for additional review, Lerner said. Of those, about a quarter were singled out because they had “tea party” or “patriot” somewhere in their applications.The IRS statement said that once applications were chosen for review, they all “received the same, even-handed treatment.”Lerner said 150 of the cases have been closed and no group had its tax-exempt status revoked, though some withdrew their applications.“Mistakes were made initially, but they were in no way due to any political or partisan rationale,” the IRS said in a statement. “We fixed the situation last year and have made significant progress in moving the centralized cases through our system.”“I don’t think there’s any question we were unfairly targeted,” said Tom Zawistowski, who until recently was president of the Ohio Liberty Coalition, an alliance of tea party groups in the state.Zawistowski’s group was among many conservative organizations that battled the IRS over what they saw as discriminatory treatment. The group first applied for non-profit status in June 2009, and it was finally granted on Dec. 7, 2012, he said — one month after Election Day.“It is suspicious that the activity of these ‘low-level workers’ was unknown to IRS leadership at the time it occurred,” said Jenny Beth Martin, national co-ordinator for Tea Party Patriots, which describes itself as the nation’s largest tea party organization. “President Obama must also apologize for his administration ignoring repeated complaints by these broad grass-roots organizations of harassment by the IRS in 2012, and make concrete and transparent steps today to ensure this never happens again.”___Associated Press writers Alan Fram and Jim Kuhnhenn in Washington and Steve Peoples in Boston contributed to this report.___Follow Stephen Ohlemacher on Twitter: http://twitter.com/stephenatap by Stephen OhlemacHer, The Associated Press Posted May 10, 2013 11:35 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Brock alumnus gives back with a little help from his friends

James Symons wanted to make sure that everyone in the Niagara Region felt the warmth from the community this holiday season.So the Brock alumnus (BRLS ’11) came up with the idea to create a ‘tool box’ for homeless men in the Niagara region after hearing about the many initiatives for women and children in the community and wanted to create a resource for men.“I was inspired to give back as a student during my time at Brock and am so thankful for the positive experience I had while at University. I am still in touch with several individuals from Brock who proudly supported me in this initiative,” said Symons.He collected items for the Tool Box Project from the community and assembled them in donated shoe boxes to distribute across the region. The shoebox items varied and included socks, underwear, hygiene products and a warm winter toque.“It was great to see the Niagara community come together to help spread the word about this project,” Symons said.Late last week he gathered colleagues, friends, family and community members to assemble boxes for distribution. After setting a goal of gathering enough items to fill 25 shoe boxes by Dec. 15, so many donations were collected that the group was able to fill and distribute 361 boxes to homeless men across the region.“It took 25 individuals an hour to complete the task, which was a small miracle after we ran out of, and then replenished, boxes, tape and wrapping,” Symons said.“The support has been incredible,” he said, “I can’t wait until next year.” read more

US Set To Decide In Trade Dispute Threatening Booming Solar Industry

first_img Share Mark Lennihan/APA rooftop is covered with solar panels at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York last February. The Trump administration is considering whether to impose tariffs on imports of solar materials.The Trump administration must decide by next week whether to impose tariffs on the imports of solar panel components.Some U.S. manufacturers have complained that cheap imports are forcing them out of business, while domestic installers oppose tariffs because cheap, imported solar panels have driven the industry’s recent growth.If President Trump decides to move forward with tariffs, the decision would represent a critical step in his trade agenda and help fulfill his campaign promise to revive U.S. manufacturing, says Julia Pyper, senior editor at Greentech Media. But the decision has caused a sharp divide in the U.S. solar panel industry, pitting manufacturers against installers.“The solar case happened to be one of the first opportunities for the Trump administration to roll out their tough on China, tough on trade kind of campaign promise,” she tells Here & Now’s Peter O’Dowd. “But it happens to be a very complex case with people on all sides coming out against this.”The new tariffs would be in addition to those imposed on Chinese solar products in 2012, which led to a decrease in Chinese imports by 45 percent in a year, according to Forbes. Two American solar panel makers, Suniva and SolarWorld, sparked the potential for new tariffs after filing an official complaint with the International Trade Commission last year.“These are the last two surviving companies,” Tim Brightbill, the lawyer representing SolarWorld in the case, told NPR in October. “We documented more than 30 U.S. solar cell and module manufacturers who were driven out of business in the last five years.”The companies argue that tariffs would allow them to better compete with international manufacturers. About 95 percent of solar cells and panels sold in the U.S. come from China, Malaysia and the Philippines, according to SVP Market Research.But only about 14 percent of the industry’s 260,000 jobs are in manufacturing, with the majority of employees working in the installation sector, according to Reuters. Solar installers have been stockpiling panels in case prices rise. Some estimates say new trade protections could double the price of imported panels. Since the case was brought under a unique section of trade law, Pyper says new tariffs could be much higher than expected.“It’s totally up to the president on this, so that’s why a lot of the industry just doesn’t know what to think because he could actually hike the tariffs much higher than anyone has proposed so far,” she says.Trump told Reuters on Wednesday that he would announce his decision soon, suggesting that imports have negative consequences for American panel manufacturers. The president must decide by Jan. 26, according to a process set out by the U.S. International Trade Commission.“You know, they dump ’em — government-subsidized, lots of things happening — they dump the panels, then everybody goes out of business,” Trump said.Opponents argue that the decision to impose tariffs could have devastating consequences for the U.S. solar industry, which has boomed in part due to a rapid drop in prices — more than 70 percent since 2010, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.Companies in other sectors of the industry outside manufacturing and installation are also expressing concern, as the anxiety around new tariffs has fueled market uncertainty, Pyper says.“Things have already started to slow down just around the uncertainty of this trade case,” she says. “It’s hard to make deals just not knowing what the prices will be.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

Australia to tighten immigration laws crackdown on extremists

first_img“This year, the government will consider what further legislation is needed to combat terrorism and keep Australians safe,” Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Monday said while releasing a Review of Australia’s Counter-Terrorism Machinery in Canberra.The review came after the deadly siege in December at a Sydney cafe where a self-styled extremist cleric took 18 people hostage inside the cafe and demanded he be delivered an Islamic State flag. The cleric and two hostages were killed.

We cannot allow bad people to use our good nature against us. “The Government will develop amendments to the Australian Citizenship Act so that we can revoke or suspend Australian citizenship in the case of dual nationals,” he said.

Abbott also suggested that tougher laws to target “hate preachers”, pointing to the political group Hizb ut-Tahrir. He said the actions against such groups would include programs to “challenge terrorist propaganda” and provide online material “based on Australian values”.“It will include stronger prohibitions on vilifying, intimidating or inciting hatred,” he added. “We will clamp down on those organisations that incite religious or racial hatred. No-one should make excuses for Islam-ist fanatics in the Middle East or their imitators here in Australia.” He said that it would also include stronger prohibitions on vilifying, intimidating or inciting hatred.last_img read more

Rob Housler if anything his performance against

first_img“Rob Housler, if anything [his performance against Houston] may give him some confidence,” Cardinals GM Steve Keim told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug & Wolf. “He’s a guy who we’ve talked about time and time again that he’s a talented player who can run and stretch the seam, but just hasn’t been able to put it all together.“Yesterday was a step in the right direction. Moving forward maybe it gives him some confidence.”While Housler’s day was encouraging, Keim noted that the biggest takeaway from the win was the way in which Arians was finally able to use all of his tight ends in the passing game.“The nice thing after watching the tape this morning, there were times where we played three tight ends at the same time,” said Keim. “Jake Ballard did a nice job at the point of attack, blocking as well as that big catch he had for the first down.“Competition is always good at that position. Any time you can bring in additional players that push the starters, I think that’s a positive quality to have.” As the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive coordinator from 2007-11, Arians helped Heath Miller grow into one of the league’s elite tight ends. During that five-year span, Miller caught 264 passes for 3,012 yards and 20 touchdowns. The tight end out of Virginia was also selected to the first of his two Pro Bowls in 2010.Suffice it to say, Arians, who also spent a year as the New Orleans Saints tight ends coach in 1996, has an affinity for the position.However, that affinity rarely surfaced during the first eight games of his head coaching tenure with the Arizona Cardinals.Whether because of injury, a lack of production or a need for added protection along the line, Cardinals tight ends were rarely featured in the team’s aerial attack over the first half of the 2013 campaign.In fact, on only 36 targets, Rob Housler and Jim Dray combined to catch 26 passes for 222 yards and a touchdown.But on Sunday, the script changed just a bit.In the Cardinals’ 27-24 victory over the Houston Texans at University of Phoenix Stadium, Housler, Dray and newly-signed Jack Ballard recorded six catches for 81 yards, including Housler’s first career touchdown reception.

The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Every stop along his long-winding road to Arizona, Bruce Arians has favored an offensive scheme that highlights the tight end position.During his two stints in Indianapolis (1998-2000 as the quarterbacks’ coach and 2012 as the offensive coordinator/interim head coach), the Colts often employed two tight end sets with the likes of Marcus Pollard, Ken Dilger, Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen.While Arians was in Cleveland as the Browns’ offensive coordinator from 2001-03, eight different tight ends — Mark Campbell, O.J.
