Stuck between protests and depression, Kashmir’s youth look for escape

Stuck between protests and depression, Kashmir’s youth look for escape

A recent visit to Kashmir took me to Pulwama which is 50 km from Srinagar, in the southern part of the disturbed valley. There I met three young men fleeing stone from the security forces.

“Yes, we paint the stones, We want freedom,” said the most talkative among them, taking the name of Jehangir. Both presented themselves as Adil and Omar.

The freedom of that; India, he asked. The response came after a pause: “In India, oppression, we are students, the police stop us, beat us, disturbing us and harassing our families …”

All were in their twenties; Low-income families. During a 30-minute conversation in a corner of a crowded market, they shared stories of police excesses. A local cop was the worst pursuer; Including blocking innocent young men and freeing them for their consideration.

As we have said, the three of them were sitting in the backseat of Maruti Alto, my local contact. They were not comfortable, the air was bare and crazy. In distracted attention they were seen on their phones, by showing me snapshots intermittently blinded by pellets and inflammatory messages militant leader Zakir Musa. The former Hizbul Mujahideen commander had been the news for threatening to kill the leaders of Hurriyat Kashmir who were called in a political conflict. Is Musa your leader? I asked. They said someone with a gun was their leader – Burhan Wani, Musa Abu Dujana or Let.

They have all accepted their leaders, relatives of activists and protesters killed by the security forces: “The father who lost his son is our leader, not Syed Ali Shah Geelani has security Z (Mrs. Hurghyat).” For them, Musa Destruction Engineering, was a “engineers bound to take the gun.”

Omar had aspired to be a doctor. With Jehangir, who is wanted to the provisions of the Public Security Law. “I have no choice. I get stones because I have no weapon to deal with security forces.”

The home village of Wani, Tral, located at a distance of 25 km from Pulwama, Kashmir is called Kandahar. A series of obstacles forcing banks to keep ATMs out of money in the region.

I tried to show triumph agitated the inconvenience of a life in crime, to be in conflict with the law, regardless of its cause, the feeling of being harmed. And if the case against the young are eliminated; Were the prisoners released and offered jobs or loans for small businesses?

His eyes light up, but only momentarily. “We can not live or eat freely, to talk about work,” Jehangir said. But it could work if it had happened, Adil admitted: “We have lost interest in the system to aspirations unjustly denied or defeated.” The students I met in Srinagar and Pulwama College domain came from a better socio-economic context. But he also felt betrayed by the effervescent and corrupt system. “The young people here lead a depressing life,” said Shamim Meraj, editor of Kashmir Monitor. Sports stadiums are in a state of detention and poorly maintained parks since the floods of 2014 even movie theaters are closed, leaving Gen-X hanging from the Internet that also locks up when events occur.

More daughters, more money: Harvard researchers’ tips for venture capitalists

More daughters, more money: Harvard researchers’ tips for venture capitalists

Venture capital firms whose partners have more girls tend to outperform their competitors, hiring more women and making more money, according to a new academic study.

In a review of rare gender diversity results in the form of a benefit, researchers at Harvard University said that other girls encouraged leaders to hire more women, in turn, “improve a performance of operations and money “.

His work was published by the influential National Bureau of Economic Research, a non-profit research organisation based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Venture capital has long been a world dominated by men, three-quarters of companies that do not have high-level investors, according to previous research cited in the study.

But increasing gender diversity could be a recipe for greater profitability, wrote business professor Paul Gompers and researcher Sophie Wang in the study co-author.

Venture capital companies are often pocket-sized enterprises, small businesses that are committed to the start-up success of investing millions in exchange for participation and hope for high performance.

According to the study, companies increased their gender diversity hiring more women saw their success rate to increase by almost 3%. Profitability, as measured by the domestic rate of return, increased by more than 3%.

University based their findings on 12,000 venture capital investments made between 1990 and 2016, primarily by US companies.

They also studied the personal information obtained from 1400 investment partners. Mathematical models have shown that the probability of hiring a high-level investor has increased by 25% when a child has been replaced by a girl among the partners of a company.

The authors have made investments that led to an initial public offering of the company or when the company was acquired for more money than expected.

The study, released Monday, adds weight to business arguments for gender diversity, they said.

“While diversity has been hailed as an important pillar of modern civil society and the contemporary work environment, there are few rigorous studies, in our view, that estimate the causal economic impact of a varied work task in a real business environment, “They wrote.

Beyond the data, it was not clear why partners with more girls have improved the performance of venture capital firms, they said.

The authors wrote that partners raising girls may feel less tense against women and therefore hire more. Female couples, by their origin, could also open the door to more business opportunities.

On Wednesday, the day before a one-day visit to Rahul Sangareddy, GHMC field staff began removing all flags, banners and posters erected by Congressional workers. “The municipal minister KT Rama Rao puts pressure on the GHMC to remove the banners and posters from Congress.” The TRS rule feels unstable. “The TRS realized that people are aware that the state government has done nothing for The last three years and now the Rahul public meeting will keep the unemployed young people away from the TRS, “said Congress Youth Staff President Anil Kumar Yadav.

White House says it has granted 14 ethics waivers to staff

White House says it has granted 14 ethics waivers to staff

Michael Catanzaro, a former lobbyist for oil and gas, can help shape the Trump administration’s energy policy. Shahira Knight may weigh in on pension issues even though she has already worked for Fidelity, a financial company specializing in retirement services. The White House on Wednesday released on its website ethics exemptions granted to four former lobbyists and others who have joined the government. In all, the White House has obtained 14 exceptions to ethics.
The revelations came after a dispute between the Office of Government Ethics and White House lawyers. Other agencies and executive departments such as Treasury, State and Defense must share similar information with EMB by Thursday. The Office of Management and Budget responded to the EMB data request last week saying it had issued a zero waiver.
As part of Washington’s commitment to “drain the swamp,” President Donald Trump prohibits high-level officials involved in the executive from working on “special” government matters involving former clients or employers for two years. President Barack Obama has imposed similar restrictions on his employees and ethics granted waivers. The White House is also represented by these exceptions on its website.
Exceptions to the Trump administration include four former registered lobbies. The rest is for other employees whose new government functions can overlap with their previous private jobs. Many are “global” exceptions for groups of employees.
Exceptions to the White House were examined by White House lawyer Don McGahn and Stefan Passantino, leading ethics. The White House said this is just waivers if these lawyers consider it too embarrassing for the person to use ethical issues brought on by their previous jobs.
“Whenever possible, lawyers worked with each member of the team to reconcile adversarial behavior rather than seeking waivers, which resulted in the limited number of exceptions granted,” said Lindsay Walters head of White House spokeswoman.
Certain exceptions cover the most important employees of the White House. For example, there is a “general” waiver which indicates that all presidential persons “may participate in communications and meetings with news organizations relating to general issues.” This opens the way, ethics, Steve Bannon, former CEO Breitbart and now head of strategy for Trump, remind reporters on the news site.
This is important because Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a group funded by transparency liberals who filed numerous complaints against the Trump administration had argued in a complaint that Bannon violated ethics pledge to talk to their former employees. Another waiver explicitly allows Kellyanne Conway, Third Trump, to contact and interact with clients of her polling company.
Joshua Pitcock, who was the only lobby group in Washington and Indiana, now serving as Chief of Staff Vice President Mike Pence is authorized under a waiver to stay in the room when the problems involved are Indiana.
“It is important that you can communicate and know the state of Indiana, and disqualification from these meetings or communications would limit the ability of the Office of the Vice President to effectively realize the priorities of the administration,” said his resignation.

Exxon vote shows Wall Street diverging from Donald Trump on climate change

Exxon vote shows Wall Street diverging from Donald Trump on climate change

Major investors have advised US industry on Wednesday that climate change is important, even as reports surfaced that President Donald Trump plans to withdraw the United States from an international pact to fight global warming. A number of large corporate institutional funds, including BlackRock Inc, the world’s largest asset manager, supported a shareholders’ resolution asking Exxon Mobil Corp to share more information on how new technologies and regulations on climate change could have An impact on the activities of the largest public oil company in the world published.
The proposal was supported by 62.3 percent of the votes. Victory over a wide margin was hailed by climate activists as a turning point in its decades-long campaign to encourage oil and gas companies to reveal how they would adapt to a low-carbon economy.
Activists argue that US companies should be more transparent about the impact of global warming, even if the United States withdrew from the Paris climate agreement in 2015, as Trump promised during his presidential campaign.
“Economic forces beyond any other consideration,” said Anne Simpson, director of investments for sustainability of the pension system for employees in California Advertising, one of the sponsors of the resolution. She attributes large investors to Exxon for change, since at least some of them changed their votes after last year, while a similar measure only earns 38% support. “We have seen a radical change in their views,” he said. Many high-level investors now consider their vote on shareholders’ proposals “on merit, instead of considering it as a test of leadership loyalty,” he said.
Among Exxon’s major investors, Vanguard Group Inc. and BlackRock Inc. opposed the call last year for reports on climate change. A Vanguard spokesman, who holds about 7 percent of Exxon shares, declined to comment on his vote this year. A person familiar with the matter said that funds managed by BlackRock, which contain about 6 percent of Exxon’s shares, voted in favor of the climate resolution. Do not expect the documents that indicate your exact votes for months. However, fund companies and others have taken action since last year to facilitate the support of climate resolutions. A spokesman for ninth investor Exxon Northern Trust Corp. Doug Holt said he had voted in favor of the proposal, citing its own updated guidelines in 2016.

The focus of investment firms reflects a new interest in climate issues among their own investors, who have made money in ‘green’ investment funds and other vehicles using environmental factors in their actions.
Wall Street priorities have changed the terms of the debate over a number of other energy and utilities companies. Most shareholders voting for Occidental Petroleum Corp. and PPL Corp. requested similar reports on the risks of climate change. Voting for the other two measures is planned for June 7 at Devon Energy Corp. and Hess Corp. in
Michael Crosby, who participates in the education of members of the Capuchin Franciscan Midwest, said Wednesday’s vote was a rejection of Exxon’s arguments, which already provides sufficient details about his prospects. “The street is, you need to give better evidence,” Crosby said.
Once the measure adopted, Exxon CEO Darren Woods said his board reconsidered its climate communications. Activists are now faced with the task of maintaining alliances with leaders such as timbers opposed to their resolutions, but in some cases supported by the Paris agreement of 195 countries. Exxon said in a March 22 letter to the White House that the Paris agreement was “an effective framework to address the risks of climate change.”

The two terrorists helped launch their men in Grenada Wednesday in the town of Sopore, where four policemen were injured.

People shouted slogans against India and in favour of freedom while the body of death commander Hibzul Mujhaideen was carried on shoulders, angry young men faced off to take the body of funeral orations.

Before being killed Saturday Bhat had escaped from the safety net often reprotedly with the help of torrential mob area. It is believed that the cordon of the security forces last month in 20 villages in the southern Kashmir Shopian was catching Bhat, who said he was hiding in the area but managed to escape.

There have been several cases of crowds who like to throw stones at the forces to stop these operations against militancy in Kashmir. Security forces have also sometimes suffered losses as a result of these incidents.

On 24 May, a similar incident was reported when terrorists, including alleged Kashmiri leader Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET), Abu Dujana, escaped from the security network of the security forces in the Pulwama district . In another incident in March, a group of nine heavily armed rebels were taken in a camp near Kakapora. However, when the troops moved, hundreds of villagers armed with stones led the campaign to help the terrorists.
