          Typology of the Indian Fan in the context of the FIFA World Cup.    
I don't really follow soccer*. So I don't know much about soccer. But I follow a lot of Indian soccer fans. I view them with mild amusement mixed with scientific curiosity. I study them. I try to find patterns in their bizarrely enthusiastic behavior. And I love doing pop-socio and pop-psych analysis of their behavior and their attitudes towards a game where India ranks even lower than countries smaller than my apartment building in Pune.

So I present here a typology of the Indian Fan in the context of the upcoming World Cup. The typology is arranged according to which country they support or bet on to lift the cup.

BRAZIL: This one is a no-brainer really, so let's get it out of the way. Everyone loves Brazil. It's a country that has won the cup the most often. They always have some of the best players, a style of play which is considered exciting, and wear really eye-catching yellow-and-green colors. So even someone with or without the most rudimentary knowledge of the game feels comfortable saying "Brazil of course!" when someone asks "Which team do you support?" It's like picking the Patriots at the beginning of the NFL season.

But it goes beyond just how good the team is on average (here comes the pop-socio and pop-psych). Brazil is "nice". Brazil is "safe". Other than soccer, what is Brazil associated with? Carnivals, pretty people, beaches, being part of the fashionable BRIC block, and again, carnivals. If countries were brands, Brazil would be like Linux - not really that relevant to your life but easy to love. It's the kind of country that if you visit as an Indian, you expect to love.

So might as well support them. Plus they are the hosts this time. Western media is being mean to them just like they were mean to India in the run-up to the 2010 Commonwealth Games. They have messy social inequality issues just like us. Yes, Brazil is safe to support.

BEST 2 EUROPEAN UNION TEAMS: At any given time, at least 2 of the 3 objectively best teams in the world are from the EU. So the self-proclaimed "knowledgeable" soccer fan from India will be telling anyone willing to listen that one of those two teams is SURE to win. One of the two is always ALWAYS Germany. And the other is some country whose economy Germany has bailed out or will be bailing out soon. Right now it's Spain. A decade ago, it was France. In between, Italy took a break from electing Caligula-esque Prime Ministers to occupy that spot.

So Germany and "Another EU country" are the best bets for Indian soccer pundits who want to set themselves apart from the bandwagon Brazil supporters and maintain a chance for gloating when the dust settles.

ARGENTINA: Ah, Argentina! The most bizarre underdog-favorite combinations in the history of sport. I say this because some of my friends who support Argentina are genuinely convinced that Argentina is THE best team, regardless of the FIFA rankings. These verbose justifications start with "Messi is...." and then meander into incomprehensibility. Other friends supporting Argentina are steadfast about the team's underdog tag. "I always support an underdog, yaar!"

The media helps in whipping up support for Argentina too, given that Argentina is to FIFA what Notre Dame is to college football in America. Every damn year when the college football starts, there will be pundits in the media saying "OH NOTRE DAME HAS A FINE FINE TEAM THIS YEAR!". Most years, they stay in the rankings for three weeks before dropping out. Once in a couple of decades, in the vein of a stopped clock being right twice a day, Notre Dame will indeed have a great season. And then the pundits preen. And Hollywood makes an atrociously weepy movie starring a hobbit. But I ramble.    

So it goes with Argentina. Call it the continuing halo effect of bad boy Maradona. Or maybe the current halo effect of some guy named Messi who's done diddly-squat in two World Cups, but apparently does great in domestic soccer matches in Europe.

HOLLAND: The Dutch team is for true-blue underdog supporters. Again, I don't know much about soccer. But from what I am told, this team has choked more times than the South African cricket team, the 1990s Buffalo Bills, and Ivan Lendl combined. Which makes them particularly alluring for people who just love supporting an underdog in the faint hope that they will be proven right. Last time, these fans were rewarded by having to wait as long as the finals to have their hearts broken.

But still, for these folks, it is HUP HOLLAND HUP. A friend of mine says that the bright orange jerseys appeal to the latent Hindutva tendencies in some Indian fans, but we'll put a pin in that for now.

ANOTHER EU TEAM: The previous four categories take care of 90% of Indian soccer fans. Which brings us to self-proclaimed "knowledgeable" fans of the game who don't like being lumped with the conventional wisdom. They need to cogently claim that a different underdog is actually going to take home the cup, but the heathen masses are too blinded by media tropes to see it. So they pick a team which is ranked somewhere from 4th to 8th in the FIFA rankings and which has a player they have watched in one of the domestic soccer leagues from Europe.

"Of course it'll be Portugal yaar! That Cristiano Ronaldo I tell you...."

For the last 3 World Cups, the top choice for these people has been Portugal, thanks to this Ronaldo fella. Never mind that he and his team have shown the poor judgment of associating themselves with the New York Jets to practice for the World Cup. That anyone can think that a guy who voluntarily decided to learn something from Rex Ryan has any chance of winning anything shows how little soccer fans know about real football. But I troll. And I digress.

When it's not Portugal, it is some other European country that yes, Germany will also have to bail out.  

ENGLAND: Don't ask me why. Seriously don't. I know very little about soccer but even I know enough to know that the chances of England winning the cup are only negligibly higher than an Indian winning the Olympic 100 meter gold. And yet a few Indians will be steadfast in their support of England.

One guy I knew used to base his support on the supposedly "under-appreciated talents" of David Beckham. This was before Beckham became known as the guy who sells underwear on giant hoardings in Times Square. These days, I suspect the support for England is driven by the fact that so many Indians spend so much money on low quality made-in-Bangladesh jerseys of teams from the EPL, that they feel obliged to go all the way.

But seriously Indian supporters of England soccer, what are the chances that an England cricket team will win an ICC title AND a notionally English guy will win the Wimbledon AND England will win the FIFA World Cup, all within 5 years?

USA: The only Indians who support the US are a) Indians who live in the US, and b) follow only cricket and/or American sports. Yes, this includes me, ok? The rest of the time, we are happy with our WillowTV subscription, our NFL fantasy football leagues, out March madness brackets, our opinions on LeBron and the Heat, our love or hate for the Yankees or the Red Sox. We look at MLS ads and go "lulz". We see European soccer matches on our cable guide menu and go "WTF?".

But then once every four years, this damn World Cup thing comes along. And everyone is talking about it. Not just CNN, who will usually talk about the most vapid things. So what do we do?

USA! USA! USA!

We google furiously to find out who our players are. We try to figure out what the hell "Group of Death" means. We practice our pronunciation of Klinsmann. And we set a countdown clock to the start of the NFL season.

* "SOCCER? IT'S FOOTBALL BRO!!!" you say? Read this.  

          Translating a Raj Thackeray Speech   
I don't agree with Raj Thackeray's stance against immigrants from UP and Bihar. I can sort of, kind of, see where he is coming from, but I don't agree with the conclusion. And I find his forcible and occasionally violent methods to have his way (especially against powerless shopkeepers and job applicants) abhorrent.

However, as a Marathi person, I find the gap between what he says in Marathi and what is reported in the national media to be suspiciously wide. There are two problems. First, they wrongly translate a lot of what he says. Second, they seem to pick and choose the most provocative bits that can be spun into an attention-grabbing soundbite. I have written about the dangers of this phenomenon before.

Today Raj Thackeray led a rally to Azad Maidan (without permission from the police top brass) as a protest against the August 11 incident. He gave a speech there. Again, I marveled at the difference between what he was saying and what the national media was reporting he was saying.

So I had an idea. I have translated PuLa Deshpande's work before. Surely I can translate a speech. So here it is, the speech in Marathi, and then, what I think is an objective, unbiased, and direct translation in English. This is not an endorsement of what he said. Just a translation for illustrative purposes. I agree with some parts, and disagree with some. I'll leave you to judge it for yourself.

Note - I am translating it in a bit of a hurry. So please forgive any typos or inadvertent grammatical errors.



When it's an institution from Maharashtra, be it a police department, a media company, or anything else.... even just a person from Maharashtra....we should demonstrate the strength to ensure that no one ever looks askance at them again with the intention of harming them.

For the last two days, this has been going on... police officials come to me and ask, how will you take the rally from Girgaum chaupatty? I told them we'll walk.

(crowd laughs)

Then they're like, you can't go from here, you can't go from there...all these efforts at putting obstacles in our way have been spearheaded by Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik. I found out the other day..... in fact a few police officials told me this...that they'll try to stop our cars, and try other things to stop us. I called the Chief Minister right away, and asked him, what is this? What happens or doesn't happen (at the rally) is something we can deal with later. But can't we express our protest in a democratic way with a rally?

Why stop us at every point? I assured them at our rally will be a peaceful one, and they still refused us permission for it? And they had no problems giving permission for that Raza Academy rally? But here we are, with a rally to protest what happened the other day right here, and they refuse us permission?

Then there's (Home Minister) R.R. Patil who says - we won't spare anyone who threatens the law and order of the city. Really? So what happened that day? Was his tail between his legs?

(crowd laughs)

The other day he calls up (MNS MLA from Mumbai) Bala Nandgaonkar and says, "What could I do? What was I supposed to do? Was I supposed to take a big stick and stand there?"

(crowd laughs)

There is this one boundary line....one border....one line that cannot be crossed. I have never crossed that line, and will never cross that line. Never raise your hands against the police.

(crowd applauds and cheers)

If you demoralize the police to such an extent, then where will the common man go with his problems? Where will he go? If this keeps happening, tomorrow even the police will say "we don't want to get involved here, do whatever you want".

Is this how a state is run? And this Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik. The cops caught the guilty people. And what does he say to the DCP who arrested the guilty people? He says, "You bastard, let them go!" He tells him to let the criminals go!

Our policewomen sisters were tormented here... they were pulled aside and beaten up and molested......all these guys, our Marathi police constables, were getting beaten up... and they weren't getting any orders?

Oh, and these (police head honchos) knew everything from the beginning. They knew that there were trains full of these goons coming for the rally. And they had choppers, and rods and everything else... tell me, are there ever any rocks lying around here (in Azad Maidan)? Where did the rocks come from?

These people had advance warning of all these facts, and they still ignored them. And they refuse permission for my peaceful rally? The other day, when some police officials came to meet me, I told them. I told them that the 11th August rally at least had targets. That mob knew that it was supposed to target the police and the media.

Who do we want to target (in this rally)? I have already declared our targets. Arup Patnaik, resign! R.R. Patil, resign! I declared this in the beginning itself.

We have not come here to destroy cars or set something on fire. We don't even wish to do all that. Even if we were to, whose cars would we destroy and whose property would we set on fire? Our own? Those belonging to our citizens from Mumbai and Maharashtra? This rally isn't for such purposes.

But how else are we supposed to express our anger? They won't let us express our anger at whatever happened. And they say, please respect democracy. This is democracy?

Go and look at the track record of Raza Academy and its rallies. A few years ago, this same Raza Academy had a rally in Bhiwandi. This bhadva (translates to 'pimp' but pimp doesn't have the same punch :)) Abu Asim Azmi went to that rally. He gave a speech there, that too an inflammatory speech. And they're sending me notices - "don't make inflammatory speeches". That Abu Azmi went there, made an inflammatory speech in Bhiwandi. You know what happened next?

The mob killed two police constables by bashing their heads in with big rocks. Then they cut off their private parts and threw their corpses into burning buses..... the government had no problems with that. And they refuse me permission for a rally?

Whoever came here (on 11t August) had no connection with Maharashtra. They all came from outside Maharashtra.

(crowd applauds and cheers)

After everything that went down here that day, this passport was found, a Bangladeshi passport...

(shows a Bangladeshi passport to the crowd)

This was found right here. Single entry passport (I assume he meant visa). Needed only to come into India. No intentions of going back, so it was thrown away here...

(throws it away)

There are countless such people coming into Maharashtra... they are all setting up their bases in Maharashtra. Tell me something....they say 'coincidence'....what coincidence?

In 1992 when the Babri Masjid was demolished, where was its retaliation felt instantly? In Mumbai! There was no violence anywhere else in the country (GS: this isn't true...there were riots in many other cities)...only in Mumbai! And when this incident happened during the rally on 11th August, its reaction happened in Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. So something happens in Uttar Pradesh, there's a reaction in Mumbai, and something happens in Mumbai, there's a reaction in Uttar Pradesh. Doesn't India have any other states???

The reason is, all these people are coming here from there. All these Pakistanis and Bangladeshis who have infiltrated and set up bases in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar and Jharkhand, they're all coming here by the trainfuls. And the bases that they are setting up here in Mumbai, those are going to create trouble for us in the future.

Otherwise tell me, this Abu Azmi is elected from two different constituencies in Maharashtra. Two different constituencies? Should any politician from Maharashtra get elected from two different constituencies? He gets elected from two constituencies because all the people in those two constituencies have all come from outside, and they vote for him.

That day, it finally came to the police (couldn't understand the word he said here despite re-playing it many times, at 12:20)...then they had to do it. While doing that, the guy who died, Abu Azmi announced 1.5 lakh rupees for him. So why not for our policemen?

(crowd applauds and cheers)

Even the state government hasn't announced anything yet. No announcements from the state government that they are going to provide compensation for those who were hurt or troubled in those events. Nothing. Nope, just get beaten up.

Why didn't R.R. Patil speak up then? He threatens us.... anyway, what's the point in threatening us? It's almost time for us (and him...a pun) to leave now.

(crowd laughs)

They don't think about anything that has already happened or what may happen. They don't do anything useful. Just get the cops beaten up. Anyone will come, drag our cops away, and beat them up?

The other day when they had that rally in Uttar Pradesh, rioted, destroyed property and all. The ones who did that were also all from outside - Pakistani Muslims and Bangladeshi Muslims. They all poured out into the streets. And what did they do? They defaced a statue of Gautam Buddha. Everyone saw it. Everyone saw pictures, saw it on TV.

Where is Mayawati? Where is that Ramdas Athavale? Where is R.S. Gavai? Where is Prakash Ambedkar? Why are they all silent? All they're obsessed with, as if possessed by a ghost, is Indu Mills Indu Mills Indu Mills Indu Mills. Don't they have anything else to do? What do they want to build in Indu Mills - a bungalow?

Why aren't they talking now? But no one will talk about these things now. They're not ready to utter a word. It's been so many days since the (11th August) incident. But there has been no statement about it from Ramdas Athavale. No statements from R.S. Gavai or Prakash Ambedkar or Mayawati, or anyone else. Nothing. Cat's got everyone's tongues.

This Mumbai Police Comissioner.....he has a "favorite" (that's the word he used) officer Dhoble. The other day, he takes a hockey stick and goes to that...what was that..juice center bar... juice center something...where did he go?

(crowd prompts)

Yes, Amar Juice Center. Is that a place to take a hockey stick to? Take your wife, your kids, I can understand, but a hockey stick? He takes a hockey stick there and beats up innocent people with that hockey stick? And what's his defense? He found drugs there....then why didn't he shut it down?

And this idiot...Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik....what's his explanation? He says Dhoble was on his way to play hockey and stopped over at the juice center. Tomorrow, if someone has gone for his honeymoon. So will he just turn up there naked?

(crowd laughs and cheers)

So Patnaik will go out of his way to protect Dhoble! Because Dhoble is his "favorite". And here (in Azad Maidan) when cops were waiting for orders to tackle the mob.....if not firing, at least give us orders for a lathi charge.... at that time Patnaik had nothing to say. And when our police officers were catching the guilty culprits, Patnaik abuses the officers, calling them "bastards"? He is demoralizing cops to such an extent?

This won't be allowed to happen in Maharashtra anymore. I only want to say one thing to R.R. Patil and Arup Patnaik. Even if you have a little bit of shame left...even a minuscule amount of shame left.... then resign. If you have even the slightest bit of shame left.

For the last two days, some newspapers have been saying - "Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena is now moving towards Hindutva". Whoever raises his hands against a cop, whatever his religion, he should be bashed up wherever he is.

When my own party's MLA was bashed up....Harshavaradhan Jadhav.....is he here?  When Harshavardhan was bashed up.... I gave the orders for him to be bashed up... would he have been bashed up otherwise? When I gave a speech at that time, I said the same thing. Harshavaradhan, no matter what happens, you DO NOT raise your hands against a policeman. Never raise your hands against a cop.

This has nothing to do with religion. All the constables who were here, all my policewomen sisters...the female cops... I consider them all my Marathi brothers and Marathi sisters. I have come out on the streets here for them.

The rally that day (11th August) was organized by Muslims and today I have organized a protest rally against it.... so immediately they're jumping to the conclusion that I am "moving towards Hindutva"? I only understand...this Raj Thackeray only understands one religion...and that is Maharashtra religion. I don't understand any religion except that one. No one dare cross this Maharashtra religion. No one dare think of harming it.

And today's rally is only to boost the morale of the police and to provide wholehearted support to the police.  Along with them, we have people from the media here. Media vans were attacked, burnt, photographers were beaten up.... this rally is to express support for all of them too.

I thank you all for the tremendous response to this rally. If ever such events reoccur, we must stand together in strength like this.

When you're going back...all of you, when you're going back...keep in mind and make absolutely sure that you don't indulge in any sort of untoward activities. Go back in an orderly and peaceful manner to wherever you came from.

I hope that in the future whenever I call upon you, you will return with the same enthusiasm. And now I take your leave.

Jai Hind! Jai Maharashtra!

          Why EPL is Soccer and not Football: The Definitive Answer   
I have been in America for 6 years now, and will most likely spend my life here. Like almost all Americans, I refer to what is played in the NFL as football, and what is played in the EPL as soccer.

I don't like soccer. Have never liked soccer. Even as a kid growing up in India, decades before I even heard of the Superbowl or NFL, I found soccer an extremely boring sport. But this post is not about why soccer is so boring. This post isn't about the banality of a "sport" that features 90 minutes of ambling around, kicking around a ball, and scoring on an average just 1-2 times during the whole excruciating period. This post isn't about a sport where it is not considered shameful to feign injuries, where convincing playacting wins games, and where referees seem even more willfully clueless than the fake referees in WWE pro wrestling. This post isn't about the utterly fallacious argument "Soccer is the #1 sport in most countries in the world, so it has to be awesome", that could also be extended to say "denying women rights and dignity is a practice prevalent in most countries in the world, so it has to be awesome".

No, this post is about the name nonsense. You know, what the "real" football is. That what's played in EPL is the only sport that can and should be called football. That churlish notion is what this post is about.

In my academic, professional, and personal life, I have gotten to know about a dozen or so Europeans and a couple of South Americans well enough to call them friends. I have had countless conversations with them, over the course of which, I have referred to Europe and South America's favorite sport as "soccer" and not "football". No eyelids were batted. No corrections were demanded. No moronic "Call it football!!!" suggestions were made. I am sure all of them think of the sport as football. But they were normal people who had better things to do in life than split hairs over the name of a game. 

But I have lost count of the number of Indians who have, rather rudely and ignorantly, interrupted me or corrected me with the occasional use of profanity, and demanded that I not call the sport soccer. As they say, the newest converts are the most extremist. And most Indians who follow soccer are the archetypal new convert extremists. India is currently ranked 165 in FIFA rankings. Snowmen have a better chance of surviving months long cruises in hell than India does of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup in this century. India's club soccer landscape is so dismal, that a documentary about it would look like Dystopian science fiction set in sub-Saharan Africa. I'm sure the bottled water budget of the newest IPL cricket team, the Pune Warriors, is more than the overall budget of all soccer tournaments played in India. Forget cricket, which is the king of sports in India. I'm sure that the revenue from the sales of Manchester United jerseys in Bombay is way more than the overall budget of all soccer tournaments played in India.

Despite the abysmal ranking and the tragic club scene, India has millions and millions of soccer fans! Or, as their hubris would force me to say, "football" fans. Now a non-Indian might wonder, how is it that a billion-strong country with millions of soccer fans is ranked lower than countries that don't even have populations close to a million? Why don't these Indian fans of the game go and watch local club soccer, support their teams, affect change and improve the fate of soccer?

The answer is simple. An overwhelming majority of self-proclaimed soccer fans in India are not really "fans" of the "sport" the way most people elsewhere are fans of sports. Scratch the surface and you'll realize that Indian soccer fans couldn't care less about the actual sport. They're just taken in by the aura surrounding the brands that European soccer has managed to cultivate and export. It's more about basking in the borrowed glory of Manchester United, Barcelona, etc. by paying ridiculous amounts of money to buy their jerseys and hats. Most Indian soccer fans couldn't tell you the difference between a banana kick and a banana split, or explain the offside rule. But they could identify the colors, logos, and brand endorsements of the top European club teams, and could tell you the keyboard shortcut to type Barca (the way any English-speaking person would type it) as Barça with that weird tail under the C to convince themselves they really know their stuff.

Well, they don't. Some do. A very few do. But most moneyed upper middle class Indians are just latching on to clubs from random European cities they couldn't even pinpoint on the map because they don't realize how completely they have been taken in by well-crafted marketing campaigns. These Indians spend more than a slum dweller's annual food budget on overpriced (but usually made in Bangladesh) jerseys, display logos on their facebook and twitter accounts, and go by nicknames like "gooner" as an expression of their utterly shallow new-convert extremism. Little wonder then, that despite dozens of European soccer clubs playing the game, 99% of Indian fans swear by one of 3 mega brands - Manchester United, Barcelona (sorry, Barça), and Arsenal.

And these Indian soccer fans are at the forefront of ignoring civility and rudely telling someone "y u call it soccer da? Call it football no macha!" and "LULWUT? y u watch rugby/NFL/AFL da? Dem no be football ra. Dey be hand-egg ra!" And of course, lazily forwarding this oh-so-cliched hand-egg picture; perfectly representative of Indian soccer fans' sporting ignorance and tendency to bask in borrowed glory - they can't even come up with their own clever rebuttals! But their ego grows a few precious microns as they do all this.

So then, which sport can stake claim to the name football? There's a short answer and a long answer. The short answer - Meh, who cares? A rose by any other name and suchlike. To give you an analogy, at any given moment, I can't tell you if I'll call India's biggest metropolis Bombay or Mumbai. I am Marathi, and in that language, we call it Mumbai. But I also grew up when the city's "official" name was Bombay and that's what we called it when speaking in English. In my mind, the names are synonymous. But there are a bunch of  folks as self-important, deluded, and rude as Indian soccer fans who can't abide by that. If they live in Shivaji Park or Goregaon, making someone say Mumbai instead of Bombay is the greatest Maratha achievement since the Battle of Wadgaon. If they live in South Bombay, making someone say Bombay instead of Mumbai is the greatest act of civil disobedience since the Salt Satyagraha. But the real answer, the short answer is - Meh, who cares?

The long answer is this. About soccer/football I mean, not that Bombay/Mumbai boondoggle. Rude soccer fans for some reason think of "soccer" as a word the Americans coined, and "football" as the pure true holy name that the noble Brits gave the sport. The long answer is vastly different. The answer steeped in history and etymology, not fallacious vapid logical shortcuts. Indian soccer fans simplistically say, as that hand-egg cliche denotes, that soccer is a game involving kicking a ball with the foot. NFL/Rugby/AFL involve carrying the ball by hands. Hence, FIFA/EPL is the "real" football. Done. Proved. Settled. QED. Elementary, my dear Watson!

Ah, Watson! Sherlock Holmes! Perfect segue!

Have you read the Sherlock Holmes story The Adventure of the Missing Three-Quarter? Not one of my favorites, but useful here. Published in 1904. The captain of the Cambridge rugby team asks Holmes to locate a missing player on the eve of a crucial match against Oxford. In that story, the sport is referred to as just "football", sans any qualifiers on three separate occasions. It is also referred to once....only once as "rugger" (as opposed to.....soccer? But more on that in a while). And as rugby, zero times.

So in the la-di-dah home of the sport, England, as a story written by one of the most famous English writers ever suggests, "football" was a term used to referred to rugby. The fact is, "football" was a generic name for a bunch of different sports, including rugby, gridiron football, soccer etc. Football was not exclusively identified even in England as the sport that is now played in the EPL. And although there isn't complete consensus on this, most scholars agree that the term "football" comes, not from kicking the ball with the foot, but the fact that the sport was played on foot. So rugby was football and soccer was football.

In fact the name soccer also originated in England (not in America!) - soccer originates from Association, because that variant of football was called association football. So soccer is the name the English came up with to explicitly distinguish the EPL/FIFA type from other types of football in the 19th and early 20th centuries. 

Across the pond in United States, once English colonies, they played mainly English sports in the 18th and 19th century. In fact, cricket was very popular before the civil war, and a team of top cricketers from England toured North America in 1859 and played in front of packed stands in Philadelphia, Hoboken, Rochester, Hamilton, and Montreal. But my cricket-loving mind digresses.

The point is, they played a lot of English sports in America those days. Including football - different types of football. If you look at the history of football, the basic point seems to be tolerance for variations. Why go into history? Even today, rugby union is markedly different from rugby league. So that kind of football, where you are on foot but carry the ball in your hands, got tinkered with in America as well. That tinkering led to what I think makes American Football so awesome - the forward pass. The pioneers were colleges who played each other in the 19th century. Finally in the early 1900s, an innovation on the scale of what IPL seemed in 2007, was made. The first ever Rose Bowl (known then as the East-West Football Game) was played between Stanford University and University of Michigan in Pasadena in 1902. That is, two years before Doyle wrote his story about the missing three-quarter.

So we can see that in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the term "football" was used in America to describe what is now played in the NFL, and by AC Doyle to describe what we know as rugby. I am sure there are also instances of people using "football" back then to refer to what is now played in the EPL. I didn't look it up. Even reading about soccer makes me sleepy. But I am sure people used football to refer to soccer as well. That's the point. It was a generic term.

The 20th century progressed and progressed fast. For socio-cultural reasons I'd rather not go into, the football that became most popular in Europe and elsewhere was the variation that involved kicking the ball around. The football that became the most popular in America and somewhat popular in Europe (under the name Rugby) was the variation where you hold the ball in your hands and run. They're all football.

Except!

Well, the thing is, it's the Europeans who invented a different name for their kicking game - soccer. FIFA governs a sport that has two names, like the Bengali bhalo naam and daak naam if you will. Both names coined by the Brits. In America or in Canada, "gridiron" football was just called football. If you're in America, football is what's played in the NFL and Canadian football is what's played in the CFL. If you're in Canada, football is what's played in the CFL and American football is what's played in the NFL. By rights, Aussies should call AFL football too, but they call it "footy", maybe for the same bizarre reason they call barbecue "Barbie". Americans didn't need a second name for their favorite game the way Europeans needed it for their favorite game. Europeans who were into soccer were probably the ancestors of Indian soccer fans, insecure and unsure, and so came up with two names.


Why do I refer to the game in the EPL by the name soccer? In the immortal words of George Mallory, "because it's there!" The name soccer is out there, put out there by Europeans, and is understood worldwide as referring to the game that involves pretending to be hurt while taking leisurely strolls, once in a while prodding the ball into a disgruntled-looking net.

So why is the sport played in EPL/FIFA soccer and not football? Because if someone says football, it could mean one of several things. But if someone says soccer, it means only one game. The game where the highest trophy shouldn't be called Golden Boot, but Golden Actor Holding His Shin Pretending To Be Hurt.

          World: Challenges and opportunities across NATO's South: Migration, trafficking, extremism, and instability, Volume 1 I Number 3 I Spring 2017   
Source: OPEN Perspectives Exchange Network (OPEN)
Country: Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Bangladesh, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Iran (Islamic Republic of), Iraq, Lebanon, Mali, Morocco, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russian Federation, Somalia, Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, World, Yemen

Executive Summary

NATO and its partners, as a part of discussions related to the Alliance’s efforts to promote peace and security in its broader neighbourhood, have increasingly focused on NATOs’ “Southern Flank.” In the following report, the authors argue that this primarily military term is likely to be off-putting to many current or would-be NATO partners, such as foreign ministries, international organisations, and civilian stakeholders, hindering the goals of “projecting stability” and risking a near-exclusive focus on threats and risks. Furthermore, this report demonstrates how the term “Southern Flank” does not fully capture NATO’s challenges. For example, issues like trafficking and migration originate in far-flung areas including West Africa, Latin America, and Central Asia, which may not be part of the Southern Flank as current conceived by NATO. In suggesting the use of a less heavily value-laden and military-centric term like the “Greater South”, the authors point out that challenges emanating from the Greater South also present opportunities to Alliance states that may bolster NATO’s strategic objectives.

The following observations and findings are based on a review of the pertinent literature from academics, research institutions, governments, and various international organisations (IOs) and international nongovernmental organisations (INGOs). They also emerge in part from the authors’ combined twenty years of research experience working on and researching issues ranging from civil-military interaction to post-crisis stabilisation and humanitarian action in contexts as diverse as Afghanistan, Bosnia - Herzegovina, Lebanon, Somalia Syria and Yemen for governments, UN agencies, the World Bank, INGOs, NATO’s former Civil-Military Fusion Centre and others.

Challenges and Opportunities in NATO’s Greater South

Some of the most immediately pressing challenges emanating from the Greater South include migration and trafficking in drugs, guns, persons as well as conflict and violent extremism. These inter-related issues thrive amidst corruption and low state capacity, prevent economic growth, and facilitate instability and extremism. This report explores these challenges and demonstrates (i) their intersecting nature; (ii) how typical approaches to addressing these issues, including increased border control and military responses, can displace the challenge and plant the seeds of future instability elsewhere; and (iii) that the various challenges facing NATO may be reconceptualised as opportunities rather than purely as threats.

With regard to migration, in 2015, 1.2 million people applied for asylum in Europe, 66.2% of whom were male according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM). This may pose social stability challenges not only in assimilation and cultural differences relating to gender relations but also in the fact that most young, male migrants, many of whom are single, will be jobless for a year or two following arrival. However, with approximately 84% of incoming migrants under 34 years old, the host economy may ultimately benefit economically from migration. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), for instance, estimates annual output to increase by 0.1% in the EU and 0.3% in Germany by the end of 2017.

          Racist slight against the Rohingyas draws no criticism from ASEAN   
Myanmar's Outrageous Racism Excused
Asia Sentinel, 12 Feb 09


A racist slight against the Rohingyas draws no criticism from ASEAN

The reputation and so-called solidarity the Association of Southeast Asian Nations hit a new low this week with the Myanmar envoy to Hong Kong indulging an extraordinary racist outburst against brown people from his own country. Undiplomatic though his words were, they are the sort of remarks that come easily to the lips of some other Southeast and East Asians for whom brown skins have always been a sign of low class if not actual racial inferiority.

Consul General Ye Mint Aung wrote to his fellow diplomats in Hong Kong explaining that the Rohingyas were not actually Myanmese and were not accepted as one of the ethnic groups of his country, or indeed as citizens. He wrote: "You will see in the photos that their complexion is 'dark brown'" in contrast to the complexion of Myanmese which was "fair and soft, good looking as well."

He went on to claim that his own complexion was typical of a Myanmar gentleman and fellow diplomats could contrast their "handsome colleague" with the "ugly as ogres" Rohingyas whose pictures were in the newspapers.

The Myanmese belief in racial purity and the superiority appearance of pale skin, as well as not being Buddhist, seem the basis of refusal to admit the Rohingyas as citizens even though they have lived in the Rakhine (formerly Arakan) division of Myanmar for hundreds of years. Doubtless it would have been better for them if the British imperialist had drawn the map between Bengal and Burma differently but that border hill country is an ethnic patchwork. In reality the Rohingyas speak a version of Bengali and have a physical appearance akin to Bengalis.

It seems that the Mynmar representative can issue crude, written racist remarks not only about his fellow Asean members but which are deeply offensive to their populous neighbors to the west – Bangladesh and India.

Judging by the way that Thailand has been treating these stateless refugees, calling them economic migrants and pushing them off in engineless boats, with possibly hundreds dying at sea, Thai officials seem to agree with their Myanmar colleague that such dark-skinned "ogres" should not be allowed even to stop temporarily in Thailand in their search for security. Thai Prime Minister, the suitably "fair and soft" complexioned fourth generation Thai Chinese, Abhisit Vejjajiva, has been vocal in defending the army's murderous actions and calling the Rohingyas "economic migrants" despite their denial of citizenship in an Asean country.

The cringing attitudes shown by Asean towards Myanmar and the racist attitudes of some Asean countries is stunning. While pushing off the Rohingyas, who anyway wanted to go to Muslim countries, Thailand has turned a blind eye to the hundreds of thousands, perhaps a million, "fair complexioned" Myanmese who work as cheap and expendable labor on Thai building sites and fishing boats. As for Asean, which supposedly now has a Human Rights agenda, it does nothing.

Malaysia once had a sympathetic attitude to the Rohingyas. Some 10,000 to 20,000 now live there having originally been offered succor as oppressed Muslims. But Malaysia has shifted towards appeasement of Myanmar and a suspicion of foreign workers generally, Muslim or not, despite the role that undocumented foreigners play in the economy.

Asean is supposed to discuss the Rohingyas refugee issue at its end February summit in Thailand. But do not expect anything other than platitudes, let alone any action to help these stateless people or condemn Myanmar.

          5 Home style tips to borrow from India   
5 Home style tips to borrow from India

India is as diverse as it is big. With more than 1.2 billion people calling India home, the variation of housing and the disparity in living conditions is profound. Essentially, housing is dependent on region and socioeconomic status; from multi-million dollar mansion to poverty struck slums, there is a clear dichotomy in the Indian way of living.

While 22% of the population still live below the poverty line, India’s burgeoning middle class has grown exponentially over the past 15 years. The growth of the middle class has seen a boost in the Indian economy and a shift, albeit slight, in the standard of living for many Indians. Even so, as a result of the extreme contrast in living conditions still ever present across the nation , it can be said there isn’t a ‘fundamental’ Indian home. Instead, aspects of tradition, religion, culture and Western influence shape what we know as Indian homes today.

Here are 5 common interior trends that can bring a little Indian style into the home.

Indian home style 

1. Add bright colours

Colour plays a huge role in not just interior design in India, but in every aspect of their culture. While there may be a profound contrast in living conditions depending on region, wealth and population, it is the universality of the meaning of colour that connects India as a community. Colours are associated with emotion, status, religion, politics, festivals and celebrations; so it’s understandable why it plays a huge role in the home too.

Popular for their positive connotations and deep-rooted meanings, colours such as blue, green, deep red, and gold are all ideal palette choices for decoration in Indian homes. Blue is associated with one of the most favoured Gods in India, Lord Krishna and is therefore well liked and commonly used around the home. Green symbolises happiness, harvest and new beginnings, particularly because of India’s rich agricultural economy. In a general sense, Indians believe green is a symbol of nature and therefore an expression of God himself. On the other hand, deep reds and golds are symbols of great wealth and grandeur. Symbolising affluence and prosperity, gold is a favoured choice of colour for those Indians who are of higher socioeconomic status.  

Typically, Indians use colours in the home to represent particular feelings, certain beliefs and desired prophetic outcomes. While in the western world colour is usually selected based on personal preference and particular taste, in India colours are steeped in tradition and history, playing a role that extends far beyond aesthetic appeal.

Add bright colours 

2. Incorporate wooden furniture

Many furnishings found in the Indian home are made from a vast range of woods. Wood is favoured for its longevity, timelessness and strength. In India, there are five different types of traditional woods. For items such as chests of drawers and shoe racks, Marandi wood is the material of choice. It’s commonly known as cedar wood and is not only durable, but aesthetically pleasing too.

For bedroom and kitchen cabinets, sofa sets, dining sets and even flooring, Sheesham or Indian Rosewood is one of the most sought-after materials on the market. Sheesham is a hardwood popular for its versatility and ability to withstand fluctuating temperatures.  

Sal Wood is common for the structures in Indians homes, such as door frames, beams and window frames. It’s one of the most durable wood options and has the ability to endure the effects of water and underground conditions. Satin Wood can be found in many decorative pieces of furniture in Indian homes. This type of wood can be sourced from both central and southern India. While it is a durable, it is difficult to upkeep.  

And the most commonly used wood for furniture in India is Teak Wood. Locally produced as well as imported from Ghana and Burma, Teak Wood is a good all-rounder option, ideal for door frames, cabinets, tables, decorative items and many other common furnishings found in an Indian home.

 using wood in indian style

3. Use muslin and different materials

Indian has many different materials locally grown and easily available that are used around the home. One of the most popular materials in India is Muslin. Originating in Bangladesh, muslin is finely woven, breathable fabric perfect for Indian’s unwavering heat. Commonly used to make garments of clothing, muslin is popular for its durability, natural fibres and ability to soften over time. Muslin is also used around the house, particularly in the kitchen.   

Silk is also a very popular material in India. Known as a material of luxury, silk possess a natural lustre and shine and is a premium material compared to others, like cotton. Similar to Muslin, silk is commonly used for clothing, but has also made its way into the home as a decorative item.

Different materials - Indian style 

4. Marigold and lotus flowers

There are around 15,000 flowering plant species in India. Different areas of India produce specific flowers, making some flora more popular in certain areas than others. The Lotus flower is the national flower of India and has a strong tie to religion. The Lotus flower is rich in meaning, symbolising divinity, fertility, wealth and knowledge. The Lotus is an aquatic plant with broad floating leaves and a pink flower. For those who have a pond in the garden, it’s typical for Lotus flowers to decorate the space.

Native to India, the Marigold flower is grown all throughout the nation year-round. Not only are they visually appealing, flowering in a bright orange and yellow, they also omit a strong perfume perfect for keeping bugs away. Marigold is the perfect flower for those who live in crop areas, as they repel any mosquitoes from coming close to the harvest.

Flower in the home 

5. Adopt a little Vastu shastra

Religion plays an integral role in the Indian way of living. Many cultural practices in India are shaped by religion, particularly Hinduism, which is the one of the four major religions found in India. Vastu shastra is a traditional Hindu system of architecture, which translates in a literal sense to the “science of architecture”. Essentially, it is an ancient Indian science of harmony and prosperous living. It encourages individuals to rid their life of any negativity and increase the level of positive energy, in particular energy found in the home. Indians believe that because people spend a lot of time inside, whether it is at work or at home, it’s imperative that there is positive energy within these places of confinement. Vastu shastra links buildings with mother-nature so that those who occupy a particular space live balanced, happy and harmonious lives.  

As such, Vastu shastra is a commonly adopted practice in many Indian homes. It is a philosophy dependent on different energies originating from the atmosphere, such as solar energy from the sun, lunar energy from the moon, as well as thermal, magnetic, light and wind energy too. The way Vastu shastra is achieved is through, for instance, the way the home is decorated, the correct placement of furniture, the direction in which one sleeps, how objects sit in relation to each other, what certain elements of the home are made from, the height of doors, the number of doors, the level of lighting, the size of the windows, and so on. While the criteria of a home deemed Vastu shastra may seem extensive, when executed correctly, the home will be a place of balance, contentment, peace and harmony.

          Right to Education Debate on Arktiect India   
Practical Stuff: For those who are not private school owners/publicists:

"India’s education sector currently offers an estimated US$40 billion market. This spans the kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) segment (US$20 billion) (905 billion INR), private professional colleges (US$7 billion) and tutoring (US$5 billion), vocational training (US$1.4 billion), test preparation (US$1.7 billion), and preschools (US$1 billion)."

This quote is from a market analysts's article.

School education budgets have been hiked to 31,036 crores. A whole range of private interests like the one below see this public fund as one more source of private income. The ready-made, publicly available criticisms of government schools come in handy to create a market buzz. Private education managements bar all public scrutiny so we don't really know (unless it is first-hand as children) what goes on inside a low-cost private school. Here are some trends:
1. Parents have reported a 160% hike in fees over an 8 year period, with High Court notices being slapped against schools for such increases.
2. Teachers and school employees are not passed on these benefits, with the real profits going to school owners.

While there is no doubt that there are certain private schools upholding the highest values of quality teaching, transparency and commitment to children's best interests at low costs, the value of government schools which are free, publicly managed, and come with midday meals is irreplaceable.

Why 'low price' when Education is free, like the Right to Life?

I end with a lesson from someone who has become a star footballer. Till a few years ago, she was a child labourer. She joined a school and fought bullying there to reach State levels in football (Yes, all is not well with schools, whether they are government or not). The point? The school she went to was a government school. Ergo: It was free. Because if it was paid, it would simply mean stars like Shakti would never be allowed an education.

Hi Mr. Jain,
Couldn't help notice that you have uploaded a ppt about your position and chosen to ignore some critical questions on WHY the GoI should fund private schools to meet India's education needs. Your ppt makes your position very clear so am selecting some key points to raise here. Am re-articulating my questions of my earlier email in simple terms:
1. How does paying taxpayer's money to private schools ensure quality education? {Tax paper's money for education is meant to give education to children. Who ever provides this education better deserves to get this. Private schools are also manned by Indian citizens. Tax payer's money is not to give salary to only Govt. employees, but to meet national social goals.}
2. On what grounds are teachers replaceable by para-teachers? How would you justify poor quality teaching? {The payment to schools are to be linked to measurement of learning outcome tested by an agency appointed by the Govt., so the quality of education better than those of Govt. schools is ensured.}
3. How does making public schools weaker by channeling the public's money to private schools justify India's long-term eductaion goals? {India's long term goal is not served by dependence on public sector alone. More efficient private/ NGO/ Coop sector are better for citizen than public sector for long term benefit of Indian citizen. The examples of AMUL in dairy sector, telecommunication, airlines, sectors prove this.}
4. Are you really saying that parents and children's rights should be curtailed further by putting the responsibility of eductaion in private hands? Private schools have no democratic school management committees. {Children are empowered by having freedom and choice and not dependence on unresponsive bureaucracy of Govt. schools.}
5. If private schools are the answer, why hasn't UK stopped funding its public schools? Why won't the UK public and its MPs allow it? {Slowly, most western countries are now introducing private/ charter school in preference to Govt. schools, and this might happen in UK too. Anyhow, we need our own solutions, not blind copying of UK.}

Many education activists have argued/ held that Government is not spending enough on school education and paying less attention to school education.

In this regard, it is useful to know the following uncontested facts:

1. Official salary level of school teachers in India is highest in the world, in comparison to their country's per capita income. Most countries pay to teachers between 1.2 to 2 times their average per capita income, but under the latest Pay Commission, this has been pegged above 7 of per capita income in India.
2. The teacher qualification standards, mostly graduation+B.Ed. is again amongst the highest in the world, as in most countries, teacher qualification is pursued after school, not graduation.
3. The provision of on the job continuous training of 20 days/ yr. under SSA is highest in the world.
4. The structure of academic support to school teachers, in the form of DIET, BRC/CRCs is most elaborate and extensive in the world.
5. Provision of free text books, which are periodically revised by the concerned SCERT, is one of the most liberal in the world.
6. The current cost of school education as per official salary level is so high that covering all children in Govt. funded school facility, a right under RTI, will require an education budget equal to more than 20% GDP, (See a paper by Jain & Dholkia in EPW, June 20, 2009) while all countries in the world have ensured universal govt. funded school education at merely 3.5 (China & Singapore) to 6% of GDP as education budget.

All these measures are already existent and funded in the state and central budgets.

You can decide if the poor performance of school system is because Govt. spends less money or pays less attention, or because Govt. run school have become essentially platforms for Govt. education department employees to obtain high salaries without Govt. schools doing their basic task..

It seems that the only practical way for the nation to honor RTI commitments is to rely in low cost private schools, and link any payment to them with their performance in ensuring required learning levels among children, specifically those from poor and backward communities/ groups. If only 25% of education budget is devoted to this, by leaving 75% to non-performing inefficient govt. schools, India could still obtain universal govt. funded and regulated school education for all its children.

The "Uncontested facts" on the Indian Government's expenditure on school Education, as produced by Mr Jain, appear fallacious and at times, just poor assertions.
As a rule, numbers/figures should be read cautiously as they can be interpreted in several ways; each interpretation will have specific political meaning/s. Mr Jain may want to consider the following queries, for instance:
- what is the significance of linking up salary with per capita income? what sense will it have if a substantial percentage of Indians is forced to survive on less than half a dollar/day?
- what will change if we went by the Gross Domestic Product numbers?
- and, what will happen if we bring in the, so called, Growth Rate to determine the salary structure? Should we not?
- The Teacher Qualification Standard (B.Ed), let's assume, is among the best in the world, but the fact is that over 6 million teachers in this country are under-paid, contractual, and severely lack in skills and training.
- Some say that today the country needs over 1.2 million teachers, the number will go up if 1:30 teacher-pupil ratio is enforced. How many teacher training institutes are there? 450. Of which, over 150 should be closed straight away, so poor is their standard, as per the admission of the NCERT itself. So, the 300 TTIs will give us the number we need?
- Why do you need 20% of the GDP today to ensure universalization of education? Why does China need 3.5% only of its GDP? The answer rests in your desire to look into comparative investments patterns of these countries since 1952.

As far as the overall performance of the Indian State is concerned, it has more than met its target in the field of education: It has ensured education to 10-15% of the populace that matters to it; the rest struggles to get basic numeracy & literacy.

Partnership with Private bodies to secure universalization of Education can be considered, of course. The same goes to Health and Food as well. There is just one condition, however: People should not be forced to pay taxes to a National government, for there won't be either a Nation or its moral legitimacy to collect taxes. Isn't it? This is what will happen if Fundamental Rights are conflated with Market Rights, after all. One should then be allowed to lease out defense, finances, laws as well. Say, some arms producing American company... his CEO as your Defense Minister! That would be some departure! It may be a good way to dismantle the nation state and to realize the true Global Village,don't you think?

Sir,

In all critical responses to our paper, our facts/ computations have never not been contested. You too are not giving any information to establish that the fact outlined by me are fallacious, as you have branded them to be, but are rightfully demanding reasonable explanations. So, let me try to provide some.

1. Per capita income comparison is the only way to make fair economic comparison of policies related to relative income in different countries.
2. Changing GNP with GDP as the comparative base would not materially affect the ratios. 3. The EPW paper already gives detailed consideration to the annual growth in income and its impact.
4. You would need 20% of GDP to cover all children because the main cost of a school program is staff/ teacher salary, which in India is 3-4 times the international trends, when seen in respect to those countries' per capita GDP. That is the reason other countries could cover all children with roughly 1/3rd of budget required in India as % of GDP.
5. The current salary of teachers in China has nothing to do with their historical attainment of universal literacy. It has to do only with China's (and most other countryies') current policy to pay its teachers what can be justified by its current income and its current goal to provide universal school education to all its children.

I share many of your concerns about the distortions in the overall political priorities of the country and the government, but school education policy should be only to educate the children, not to balance/ correct/ compensate the imbalances/ injustices elsewhere.

Let us fight political battles separately, and use education policy and budget only to educate children. Let us not use the money which rightfully should be spent on children's education to correct the implication of India's poverty on one of its section, i.e. teachers.

I would also share your concern that involvement of private-public partnership in education delivery should be guided by the social goal of ensuring quality education to all children from poor families, not only a small section that might get 25% seats in a few elte private schools, which are discussed in our TV/ media debates

Warm regards.

Hi Mr. Jain,
I was wondering where the conclusion of supporting low-cost private schools is coming from. Has your paper explored in what ways are low-cost private schools that
- pay their teachers meager salaries
- charge money for fees from parents
- offer very poor quality of teaching and
- retain the profits as unaudited accounts, by the school management,
....superior?

The other conclusion, missing from your paper, of improving the quality of government schools.

Is the solution for mismanagement of funds by GoI's schools, private schools? I wouldn't jump to that conclusion, without an emperical data of the kind you quote on how these schools are superior. Because in a country where purchasing power is as low as ours (38% BPL according to the limited re-definition of India's BPL by the Suresh Tendulkar Committee), expecting parents to bear the cost of school education (which happens to be a RIGHT - not a 'product' to be purchased) is just plain illogical and wrong.

Would request you to rethink your argument form the point of view of children. Couldn't agree more with you when you say, keep politics (and vested interests) out, just bring in the children's point of view: Should a child be expected to pay for what should come free to her?

I feel compelled and drawn to this discussion as the issues raised are important. The idea of nation State and its role is not an uncontested one and so is not the role of education. Even in a domocracy, education and educational thought can not be left to the purview of the Government. It is important to distinguish between the Government and the State. There is often this confusion as we still live in times where the State was feudal and therefore the relationship of people to the State was that of a subject being governed by the State. The king and and the king's key officers decided who would be a part of the decision maker and how things would proceed. They also decided many other things including the rights people would have. Inspite of the fact that we are not a democracy in practice and have not given up our feudal governance sensibilities there is an alternative conception that has been formulated by the constitution that governs us. We need to think of the State in the context of what we pledged in the preamble and then think about what the State includes and what it would leave out to limit the notion of the State to the Government may not be sufficiently explanatory?

When I look at the arguments of Mr Arun Kumar I am stuck by his sympathy with the people in the education system but perhaps he is not saying that. I may have missed the point and he maybe saying that all this is an irrelevant discussion. I maybe misreading his letter as an concern about quality. (Problem with satires is that dumb like me fail to grasp the full meaning. I will ask forgiveness and continue) I am also impressed by the argument that people should not live below the half a dollar expense that they are able to make now and that they should have more. The point is that the gross domestic product is a number that gives you an idea of the amount of exchange in the economy and that would indicate what would be available to the entire population in the country. ( I am dimly aware that this is not strictly correct but the figures would not be different by a large amount, please excuse this as i am not an economist) So if you have a large segment of the available resources distributed to a specific section, namely the govt employees or the corporate employees here then it is obvious that unless these lead to a proportionately higher increase in the economy the available resources for the rest would decline. Therefore there is an argument in relating the expense to the GDP. In health and in education the expenditure is said to be critically important as it would lead to more completeness in life but perhaps there is expectation that it would also lead to economic growth as the people are healthier and more capable.

So where does that lead us, we live in a country that claims that it wants to be moving towards democratic equality of opportunity and choice. (Nice words) and we have a large space that we want to be available for the initiative of the people. We are not a State that is autocratic or a State that is totalitarian. I think the RTE and some of the implications of it and the rules that are being formulated for it need to be looked at in that context. they have also to be looked at in the context of the Governance mechanisms available and the how rules are implemented. To me there is a lot of sense in including people's concerns in education and as in the time of independence struggle encourage those interested in providing liberal education within the norms of Indian constitutional framework to run their educational institutions. There is exploitation all around, clerks are exploited, workers are exploited and there is wide spread disparity of compensation for apparently similar roles. The reason for being so concerned about the salaries of only Govt employees and of teachers in private schools seem to be disproportionate to their numbers and the extent of exploitation. A daily wage worker is not even confident of a useful role and not confident of regular employment is not the matter of same concern as the teacher is. The budget in the economy is a sharing of resources and to say 20% of that should go to education and that we do not care where it comes from is denying the role as a responsible democratic citizen in my view.

I of course do not know the answer but do know that closing private schools or forcing them to cheat and issue false salary slips in connivance with the monitoring mechanisms would further compound the problem. There are private schools that get poor children and where the teachers are paid low are part of the family. they fulfill the needs of people who send their children to them then there are also social interveners who may not be substantial but are significant. They are also creators of ideas and extend education. Their existence and survival, thought, autonomy and innovative spirit has been critical to development of educational ideas in the country in many ways. It is not clear why we want to close down the options for all these citizens initiatives and close down open schools that provided opportunity to those who the schools could not bring in.

The RTE discussions and the arguments of its promoters have in them a ring of the touching faith in the system that they criticize voiciferously. There is no comment on Governance and how it would allow space and autonomy. There is on the other hand further monitoring proposed by a system that has not functioned. The system for its faliures has held the teachers and the community responsible and the present formulations are in the same direction. We can only see theMore later 'identical boxes' production syndrome that RTE seems to push towards. The only points about Governance are a demand for more budget, more centralization and stronger monitoring. It is almost assumed that only those who would be in bureaucracy or formulating rules for them and with them know what is to be done and are responsible and quality conscious. The fact that education is a dialogue and no monitoring can ensure that the dialogue be meaningful as the meaningfulness of that would also have to be determined in the context of children and the community as well as the teacher does not seem to be reflected in the design. Forming rules that take away initiative, flexibility and explorations can not improve education, which is a process of releasing human thought.

Yes we need to strengthen and improve the Govt system but not by forcing the alternatives to close. You can not prove your line longer by erasing the other persons line. How do we enlarge the quality line of the Govt schools is something we need to address and that is an issue of governance. we need to read the NCF 2005 that the RTE endorses and the spaces that NCF wants to encourage and increase and the path that of openness, autonomy and multiple explorations that it proposes.

More later. Ready for the brick bats

1. There is some/ considerable evidence of low cost privately managed schools delivering better than Govt. school education. Some is cited in my paper, but much more exists. There is almost no evidence that average Govt. school is doing better than a private school whose cost is more than Rs. 200-300/- per child / month.

2. I do not support private schooling provision where poor parents have to pay. I argue for the Govt. contracting out delivery of service to privately managed but publicly regulated low cost schools that can be held accountable to meet socially preferred goals, so that children get their due, which they are not getting from very expensive Govt. managed schools. Many NGO schools are examples of this. Currently, Govt. would have to spend more than 8000-9000/- per child per year in its schools if it pays 6th Pay Commission salary to all its teachers. By paying Rs. 3500/- to privately managed schools, the same Govt. could ensure much better education to children, by linking payment to school with exam results.

3. I do not have reliable remedies to improve govt. schools, this task must be undertaken by those who support Govt. managed schools and payment of salary to teachers in these schools at the rate prescribed by the 6th Pay Commission.

Warm regards.

Just responding to the points raised:
1. There is considerable evidence that govt school education is doing very well: you only have to see the Navodaya schools, Kendriya Vidyalayas, Sainik Schools. If the problem is mismanagement of funds, i can see the point about bringing accountability - still cannot see how this makes a case for paying teachers less.

Many other government employees fall under the 6th Pay Commission raise. How will paying them lesser help?

Also I wouldn't agree that low-cost teachers are all India's children deserve and you really need to look at the motivation behind such a thought. All children deserve fully trained, qualified teachers because the work of teachers is serious and they need to be equipped to handle this, like any other profession.

Isn't the answer creating accountability among teachers? And talking about those lakhs of schools where a government teacher teaches diligently, often balancing 3-4 classes, due to personnel shortages?

2. The crux of the argument is that education is the state's business because it is a RIGHT, one it cannot outsource to private parties, by either footing the bill of private school fees or by expecting private schools to reserve 25%. If the state gives up this responsibility by quoting the poor state of teaching, it might as well start giving up its other responsibilities too - notably security (nobody will agree to that!).

Why are we arguing about cost-saving in something as basic as schools? Countries that do spend on public education are the UK and France - countries where the level of civic awareness is relatively high. Spending on public services ups the ante as far the overall level of the citizens go - and no one can deny education is among the most fundamental of public services. And the people in charge of something as fundamental as education need just pay.

3. In summary, there is no alternative for working on improving accountability. If we dissolve public schools, we hand over public accountability permanently to private players. If by international standards India is paying its teachers well that is something to uphold, not dilute, by arguing that we can get teaching 'cheaper'.

(Have you considered puchasing power parity in your analysis -
What people get paid and what it affords them are two different stories)

+++++++++++++
I only have a small comment on the costing. The provision suggests not more than 30 children per teacher. This implies a cost that would be more than the Rs 8000-9000 cost worked out by Mr Jain. I am not sure if he accounted for the text books and the learning materials, teacher development & support and administeration and the monitoring.
I also do not see the advantage of linking payment with exam results that is suggested by Mr Jain.
Hardy
+++++++++++++++++++++++++
I wish to make four points.
First Point:
It looks logical that allocations will depend on the size of the pot.
And yet we are drawing different conclusions.
The economy of a country may or may not reflect the nature of its investment priorities. This is so because priorities are often determined by political expediencies. Consider Bangladesh, for instance, a poorer economy that has far greater investment in education, compared to India. How much is okay to shell out for education may be a viable economic decision only in the long run – which governments invariably choose to ignore. A State must not.
An economic argument is also a political concern (and the other way). My queries were emanating from this location.
I assign Mr. Hardy’s following supposition to precisely this location: “The budget in the economy is a sharing of resources and to say 20% of that should go to education and that we do not care where it comes from is denying the role as a responsible democratic citizen in my view”. The responsible citizenry would also ask why the requirement has become 20% today. The Universalization of Education is at least a five decade old promise to the people. School buildings, provisions, teachers, teacher training institutes, etc, are not suddenly-arrived emergencies. In the post-1990 Structural Adjustment show, the World Bank and its functionaries, nation states included, came up with MDG and how we all have begun pushing for EFA has actually become part of modern folklore.
Second Point:
Holding the State responsible for what is ensured as Rights by the Constitution is not to make the State the sole arbiter in deciding what education is or should be. Bidisha makes this point clearly. There can’t be disagreement with Mr. Hardy’s following remark - Even in a democracy, education and educational thought can not be left to the purview of the Government. [I would go a step further and say that it must not be left even to the purview of the State]. What is being underlined is that the responsibility to provide infrastructure, system and mechanism belongs to the State. The public sphere should and will continue to play a role in challenging, sharpening, researching, innovating issues related to education, its meaning and content.
This brings me to my third point.
In several write-ups of late, one senses a slip up between non-government and market, between people and private. This linguistic corruption, for the lack of a better term, if what I feel has any substance, is the marker of how market has invaded our senses. Of course, private schools too are about people, so often also about poor people, students and teachers, and their ideas and thoughts. The moot question, however, is: are all of them there because the government schools can’t function properly? Should the question of poor functioning of government institutions be addressed by market solutions? Is there a difference between Public-Private Partnership and Government-Market tie up? Is the market today becoming all-powerful institution because the State is weak? Or, is the State actually facilitating the stronger role for the market? There is neither need nor feasibility to shut all private schools. But, while saying this we must make it clear that we are not advocating privatization of school/education. Else, there always will be a follow-up question: why not privatize the nation-state itself. And, this is not a polemical point or satirical statement.
Just for the record, asking for greater budgetary provisions for Education, I hope, does not necessarily make one a supporter of the current Right to Education Act.
Finally, the question about bringing up other concerns, issues, struggles to the field of Education and budget. If I got it right, I do not quite know how else to address it. For me and many others, they are not separate. The specifics of Education may belong to educationists, but the political-economy of Education is everybody’s concern. A mazdoor woman who survives on 20 rupees/a day is also the one who didn’t get quality education. Nor are her children likely to get it.

          Große Modemarken verpflichten sich zu neuem Bangladesch-Abkommen   

Um zu gewährleisten, dass die Bemühungen über den Mai 2018 hinaus anhalten, dem Zeitpunkt, an dem das auf fünf Jahre konzipierte Abkommen zur Brand- und Gebäudesicherheit in Bangladesch ausläuft, wurde gestern auf dem Globalen Forum der OECD für verantwortungsbewusstes Verhalten im Geschäftsleben in Paris ein neues Bangladesch-Abkommen angekündigt.

“Die Erneuerung des Bangladesch-Abkommens stellt die Fortsetzung des effektivsten Programms sicher, um die Sicherheit von Fabrikgebäuden in der heutigen Zeit der globalen Kleidungsproduktion zu gewährleisten. Das Abkommen hat mehr als 100.000 Verbesserungen zur Sicherheit in mehr als 1.500 Bekleidungsfabriken mit mehr als 2,5 Millionen Bekleidungsarbeitern dokumentiert”, kommentierte Ineke Zeldenrust von der Clean Clothes Campaign.

Bangladesch-Abkommen um drei Jahre verlängert

Die neue Vereinbarung wird sicherstellen, dass mehr als 1.000 Bekleidungsfabriken in Bangladesch über sichere Arbeitsbedingungen verfügen. Bislang haben 14 der folgenden führenden Marken und Einzelhändler unterzeichnet, darunter viele deutsche Unternehmen und einige der Branchengrößten: Kmart Australien, Target Australien, Primark, H&M, Inditex (Zara), C&A, Otto , KiK, Aldi Süd, Aldi Nord, Lidl, Tchibo, LC Waikiki und Helly Hansen. Weitere acht Marken - Esprit, Hüren, Bestseller, Wibra, Schmidt Group, N Brown Group, PVH und Specialty Fashion Group Australia - haben sich zur Unterzeichnung verpflichtet.

“Das erneute Engagement der Marken für die Fabriksicherheit in Bangladesch ist ein Vertrauensvotum in das Abkommen”, erklärte IndustriALL Generalsekretär Valter Sanches. “Wir drängen die Marken und Einzelhändler, die in Bangladesch herstellen lassen, darauf, das neue Abkommen zu unterzeichnen. Wir glauben, dass jedes wirklich verantwortliche Unternehmen dies tun wird”, fügte Judy Gearhart hinzu, geschäftsführende Direktorin des International Labor Rights Forum.

“Das Abkommen ist das Gegenmittel zu den freiwilligen Betriebspüfungen der Branche, die kläglich daran gescheitert sind, die Arbeiter in den Jahren vor dem katastrophalen Zusammenbruch des Rana Plaza-Gebäudes zu schützen”, fasste Scott Nova, geschäftsführender Direktor des Worker Rights Consortiums, zusammen. “Das Modell des Abkommens ersetzt freiwillige Versprechen mit durchsetzbaren Verpflichtungen, sorgt für schwere wirtschaftliche Konsequenzen für Zulieferbetriebe, die sich weigern, sicher zu arbeiten, und fordert Marken auf sicherzustellen, dass ihre Zulieferer die notwendige Renovierungsarbeiten leisten können. Die Erneuerung des Abkommens ist ein Beweis für die Wirksamkeit dieses Modells.”

Wie das alte Abkommen wird auch das neue von den weltweiten Gewerkschaften IndustriALL Global Union und UNI Global Union unterstützt. Vier Nichtregierungsorganisationen, nämlich die Clean Clothes Campaign, das Worker Rights Consortium, das Internationale Labour Rights Forum und das Maquila Solidarity Network, haben als Zeugen unterschrieben.

“In den vergangenen vier Jahren haben Gewerkschaften und Sicherheitsorganisationen für Arbeiter mit internationalen Marken im Rahmen des Abkommens zusammengearbeitet, um eine Lösung für das scheinbar unlösbare Problem lebensgefährlicher Fabriken in Bangladesch zu finden. Viele sagten, dass Veränderung nicht möglich sei. Wir haben dies widerlegt. Unser Ziel ist es, eine globale Wirtschaft zu schaffen, die das Leben und die Würde aller Arbeiter respektiert, und das Abkommen ist ein wichtiger Schritt auf diesem Weg. Das Abkommen von 2018 wird das Vorwärtsmomentum fortsetzen”, kommentierte Christy Hoffman, stellvertretende Generalsekretärin der UNI Global Union.

Verlängerung des Bangladesch-Abkommens setzt auf mehr Marken und mehr Möglichkeiten

Während sich das neue Abkommen für drei weitere Jahre mit unabhängigen, fachkundigen Inspektionen zur Gebäudesicherheit auf alle Mitgliedsfabriken erstreckt, um sicherzustellen, dass die Sicherheitsverbesserungen, die im Rahmen des ersten Abkommens erzielt wurden, beibehalten und dass neue Probleme in den Fabriken angesprochen werden, wird es auch darüber hinausgehen, da die Bekleidungsindustrie Bangladeschs stark gewachsen ist.

So wird die neue Vereinbarung stärker auf das Recht der Arbeiter eingehen, sich zu organisieren und sich einer Gewerkschaft anzuschließen, da die Stärkung der Arbeiter für die Gewährleistung der Arbeitssicherheit von grundlegender Bedeutung ist. Allerdings bleibt gerade dies eine Herausforderungen, wie die Arbeiterproteste im Dezember 2016 gezeigt haben, als die Regierung gegen Gewerkschaften vorging und Arbeiter festnahm.

Die neue Vereinbarung umfasst auch einen besseren Schutz für Arbeiter, deren Fabriken geschlossen oder verlagert wurden. Sie bietet auch die Möglichkeit, das Abkommen auf andere Sektoren auszudehnen, etwa Fabriken, die verwandte Produkte wie Heimtextilien und Schuhe oder Fäden und Stoffe herstellen.

“Ich bin froh, dass wir eine Vereinbarung zur Verlängerung des Abkommens getroffen haben. Der Gewerkschaftsverbund von IndustriALL Bangladesch hat keine Toleranz gegenüber unsicheren Arbeitsplätzen, die das Leben der Arbeiter bedrohen. Das Abkommen ist für Arbeiter, die jetzt die Sicherheitsprobleme in ihrer Fabrik kennen, äußerst wichtig und jetzt können sie etwas tun”, sagte Amirul Amin von der National Garment Workers Federation, einem Partner von IndustriALL Bangladesch.

Als Teil des ersten Abkommens führten Ingenieure Inspektionen zum Brandschutz und zur elektrischen und strukturellen Sicherheit in mehr als 1.800 Fabriken durch und identifizierten 118.500 Probleme. 97 Prozent der Gefahren am Arbeitsplatz, die in der ersten Inspektionsrunde des Abkommens identifiziert wurden, wurden behoben.

Der Einsturz des Rana Plaza-Gebäudes im April 2013 kostete mehr als 1.100 Arbeitern das Leben; über 2.500 wurden verletzt. Sechs Wochen später kündigten Gewerkschaften, Nichtregierungsorganisationen und Modemarken das erste Bangladesch-Abkommen an. Derzeit umfasst das Abkommen mehr als 2,5 Millionen Arbeiter. Das neue Abkommen tritt in Kraft, sobald das alte aus dem Jahr 2013 im Mai 2018 abgelaufen ist.

PUTRAJAYA: Jabatan Imigresen akan melaksanakan operasi gempur besar-besaran di seluruh negara bermula tengah malam ini bagi mengesan pendatang tanpa asing (PATI) selaras dengan tamatnya tempoh permohonan kad sementara atau ‘Enforcement Card’ (E-Kad), hari ini.
 
Ketua Pengarahnya, Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali berkata selepas tempoh tersebut selain tangkapan ke atas PATI, majikan juga akan dikenakan tindakan undang-undang atas kesalahan melindungi serta menggaji PATI mengikut Seksyen 56(1) dan Seksyen 55B di bawah Akta Imigresen 1959/1963 termasuk menggaji warga asing yang menyalahgunakan pas pelajar mereka.
 
"Saya sudah tegaskan banyak kali bahawa tarikh akhir pendaftaran adalah pada 12 tengah malam ini, dan ia tidak akan di sambung," katanya pada sidang media, di Putrajaya hari ini.
 
Menurut Mustafar, pihaknya ternyata kecewa dengan sikap berlengah para majikan yang tidak membuat pendaftaran dengan lebih awal walaupun program tersebut telah dilancarkan sejak 15 Februari lalu.
 
Beliau berkata setakat jam 8 pagi tadi, hanya 23 peratus iaitu 155,680 PATI melibatkan 26,957 majlikan telah membuat permohonan dan sebanyak 140,746 E-Kad telah dikeluarkan, jumlah yang jauh lebih rendah daripada sasaran asal 600,000 PATI.
 
Menurutnya, warga Bangladesh adalah warganegara PATI yang tertinggi mendaftar E-Kad diikuti Indonesia, Myanmar dan Nepal.
 
Katanya, walaupun permohonan ditutup pada jam 12 tengah malam ini, tetapi para pegawai terpaksa bekerja sehingga 7 pagi esok bagi memproses kesemua dokumen yang sedia ada.
 
Malah, katanya, atas kapasiti yang terbatas, permohonan majikan yang datang ke pejabat Imigresen selepas 11.30 pagi tadi terpaksa diketepikan terlebih dahulu bagi pihaknya memproses kesemua permohonan yang sedia ada.
 
Mustafar turut memaklumkan pihaknya menahan beberapa orang, yang didakwa sebagai ejen, yang mengambil kesempatan dengan mengeluarkan E-Kad palsu.
 
Katanya, permohonan E-Kad perlu diuruskan sendiri oleh majikan tanpa melibatkan orang tengah.

Comment j’ai ouvert les yeux sur la barbarie de l’islam

par Phyllis Chesler
Article paru dans The Times of London le 7 mars 2007 
J’ai été prisonnière à Kaboul. Je m’étais fiancée avec un musulman afghan qui était charmant, séduisant et occidentalisé et dont j’avais fait la connaissance dans une université américaine. Le purdah auquel j’ai eu droit était relativement chic, mais une existence de femme séquestrée en permanence n’était pas ma tasse de thé – pas plus que l’hostilité des hommes envers les femmes sur la place publique, qu’elles soient voilées en totalité, voilées en partie ou non voilées.
À notre atterrissage à Kaboul, un fonctionnaire de l’aéroport m’avait confisqué en douce mon passeport américain. « Ne t’inquiète pas, ce n’est qu’une formalité », m’avait assuré mon mari. Ce passeport, je ne l’ai jamais revu. Plus tard, j’ai appris qu’on procédait habituellement de cette manière avec les épouses étrangères – probablement pour qu’il leur soit impossible de repartir. Du jour au lendemain, mon mari, un homme avec qui j’avais eu des discussions sur Camus, sur Dostoïevski, sur Tennessee Williams et sur le cinéma italien, est devenu pour moi un étranger. Il s’est mis à me traiter de la même manière que son père et son frère aîné traitaient leurs épouses : avec distance, et avec un soupçon de dédain et de gêne.
Pendant les deux années que nous avions déjà vécues ensemble, mon futur mari n’avait jamais mentionné une seule fois le fait que son père puisse avoir trois femmes et vingt-et-un enfants. Il ne m’avait pas non plus avertie que je serais censée vivre comme si j’avais été élevée en Afghanistan, ce qui voulait dire que je devrais passer la plus grande partie de mon temps cloîtrée en compagnie d’autres femmes, ne sortir que sous escorte masculine et passer mes journées à attendre le retour de mon mari, à rendre visite à d’autres femmes de sa famille ou à me faire confectionner de nouveaux vêtements (très chics au demeurant).

En Afghanistan

Aux États-Unis, mon mari était fier de fréquenter une rebelle-née, adepte de la libre-pensée. En Afghanistan, au contraire, à partir du moment où je critiquais le traitement réservé aux femmes et aux pauvres, je faisais de lui un suspect et un homme vulnérable. Il se moquait de mes réactions horrifiées, mais je savais bien ce que je voyais et ce que j’entendais. Je voyais ces pauvres femmes en tchador contraintes de s’asseoir à l’arrière de l’autobus et obligées, au bazar, de céder leur place dans la queue à tous les hommes qui arrivaient. 

J’ai été témoin des souffrances et des rivalités entre co-épouses et entre demi-frères qu’entraînent les mariages polygames arrangés et les fiançailles avec des petites filles. J’ai vu à quel point la subordination et la séquestration des femmes engendraient un profond éloignement entre les sexes, avec pour conséquences la violence conjugale, le viol conjugal et une pratique aussi généralisée que niée de l’homosexualité et de la pédérastie chez les hommes, comme cela s’observe dans les prisons. J’ai vu comment les femmes frustrées, négligées et privées d’éducation maltraitaient leurs belles-filles et leurs domestiques, et comment on interdisait aux femmes de prier dans les mosquées et de consulter les médecins qui étaient des hommes (c’était le mari qui décrivait les symptômes, en l’absence de sa femme). 
Pris individuellement, les Afghans étaient courtois et charmants ; mais l’Afghanistan, tel que je l’ai connu, était un bastion de l’analphabétisme, de la pauvreté et de la malhonnêteté, où proliféraient des maladies que l’on soigne ailleurs. C’était aussi un État policier, une monarchie féodale et une théocratie, où régnaient la terreur et la paranoïa. L’Afghanistan n’avait jamais été colonisé. Dans ma belle-famille, on disait : « Même les Britanniques n’ont jamais réussi à occuper notre pays. » J’ai donc été obligée d’en arriver à la conclusion que la barbarie afghane était une création locale et qu’il n’était pas possible de la mettre sur le compte de l’impérialisme occidental. 
Bien avant l’arrivée des talibans, j’ai appris à ne pas idéaliser les pays du Tiers-monde et à ne pas prendre leurs horribles tyrans pour des libérateurs. J’ai aussi appris que l’apartheid sexuel et religieux dans les pays musulmans était indigène, qu’il n’était pas le résultat d’un quelconque crime occidental – et que de telles « coutumes tribales » pittoresques étaient un mal non pas relatif mais absolu. Bien avant que les hommes d’Al-Qaïda ne décapitent Daniel Pearl au Pakistan et Nicholas Berg en Irak, j’ai compris qu’il était dangereux pour un Occidental, et plus particulièrement pour une femme, de vivre dans un pays musulman. Rétrospectivement, je pense que mon soi-disant féminisme occidental a pris forme dans ce pays d’Orient, si beau et si traître. 

Cela n’a pas empêché nombre d’idéologues et d’intellectuels occidentaux, entre autres les féministes, de me diaboliser et de faire de moi une réactionnaire, une raciste et une « islamophobe » parce que j’affirmais que le plus grand apartheid sexuel et religieux du monde était celui de l’islam, et non pas d’Israël, et que si les Occidentaux ne s’opposaient pas moralement, économiquement et militairement à cet apartheid, non seulement nous aurions le sang d’innocents sur nos mains, mais nous ne tarderions pas à subir la charia en Occident. J’ai été conspuée, menacée, boycottée et traitée en indésirable à cause de ces idées hérétiques – et parce que je dénonçais l’épidémie de violence entre musulmans dont, de façon insensée, on rend rituellement responsable ce tout petit pays qu’est Israël.

Femmes en Afghanistan
Mes idées ont cependant été favorablement reçues par les personnes les plus braves et les plus éclairées qui soient. Des personnalités musulmanes laïques de premier plan et des dissidents de l’islam – d’Égypte, du Bangladesh, d’Iran, d’Irak, de Jordanie, du Pakistan, de Syrie, et des exilés venus d’Europe et d’Amérique du Nord – se sont réunis pour participer à une conférence historique en Floride et m’ont invitée à présider la session d’ouverture. 
Ibn Warraq, qui présidait la conférence, a déclaré : « Ce qu’il nous faut maintenant, c’est un âge des Lumières dans le monde musulman. Faute d’un examen critique, l’islam restera dogmatique, fanatique et intolérant et continuera de réprimer les droits de la personne humaine, l’individualité, l’originalité et la vérité ». La conférence a donné lieu à une déclaration appelant à ce nouvel âge des « Lumières ». Dans cette déclaration, il a été proclamé que l’ « islamophobie » était une notion fausse, que l’islam était appelé à connaître « un avenir noble en tant que conviction religieuse personnelle et non pas en tant que doctrine politique » et qu’il fallait que l’islam « cesse d’être prisonnier des ambitions d’hommes assoiffés de pouvoir ». 
Il est temps que les intellectuels occidentaux qui se prétendent antiracistes et attachés aux droits de la personne humaine rejoignent ces dissidents. Pour cela, il est nécessaire d’adopter un barème universel en matière de droits de l’homme et de renoncer à notre penchant pour ce relativisme multiculturel qui justifie et même idéalise la barbarie islamiste, le terrorisme totalitaire et la persécution des femmes, des minorités religieuses, des homosexuels et des intellectuels. Notre refus abject de trancher entre la civilisation et la barbarie et entre le rationalisme éclairé et le fondamentalisme théocratique est fatal aux victimes de la tyrannie islamique. 
Ibn Warraq a écrit un ouvrage caustique, intitulé Defending the West: A Critique of Edward Said’s Orientalism. Les intellectuels occidentaux auront-ils, eux aussi, le courage de défendre l’Occident ?

Naas Siddiqui on Madness Radio

 

What if psychotic experiences express historical and intergenerational trauma? Does one person’s emotional crisis reach beyond their own individual mind? Could synchronicities and meaningful coincidences guide recovery instead of just being “symptoms”?

Naas Siddiqui, a psychiatric survivor and therapist in training who founded the Spiritual Emergence and other Unusual Experiences student group, descended into altered states after withdrawing from psychiatric medications. She discovered how her Bangladeshi heritage shaped her madness, and found a unique pathway to use her visionary states to heal personal and family trauma.

          Abbigliamento arabo tra passato e presente: kurta   

Il  kurta (o kurti) è un abito tradizionale indossato in Afghanistan, in Bangladesh, in India e in Pakistan. E’ una camicia allentata che cade appena sopra o sotto il ginocchio ed è indossata sia dagli uomini che dalle donne. E’ abbinato ad un shalwar o ad un churidar per le donne o ad un pajama per gli uomini e si usa sia giornalmente che nelle occasioni speciali. I kurtas erano molto di moda anche nel mondo occidentale specialmente negli anni 60/70, venivano indossati dagli hippies come camicette sopra i jeans , questa versione era solitamente un po’ più corta di quella originale. Un kurta tradizionale si compone di parti rettangolari di tessuto tagliate in modo da non lasciare tessuto residuo. Le cuciture laterali sono lasciate aperte sopra il bordo, per dare all'indossatore una certa facilità di movimento. La scollatura è sempre tonda e la svasatura è minima. Anch'esso molto pratico e comodo. E’ generalmente abbottonato sul petto, con gradevoli ricami geometrici lungo i bottoni, il collo e il bordo delle maniche.

          BUSINESS AND INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES   
FRANCHISING OF RESULTS Arumanis
Currently there are many food stalls that sell snacks from different parts of the region of Indonesia. However, there are only one or two snacks that are difficult to find, including Arumanis.

Foods made from raw sugar which is often called cotton sugar is only there in a celebration or a festive night market. Difficulty finding Arumanis on ordinary days Arumanis Rainbow deem this as a business opportunity.

Arumanis foods are short-lived. Not because of stale, but the quality of cotton would be reduced if allowed to Arumanis exposed to the wind. Therefore Arumanis Rainbow pack their products in an airtight container. This Arumanis can stand up to a month in air-conditioned room, the word Prana Mangun W., founder of the Rainbow franchise Arumanis.

Rainbow franchise owner Arumanis others, Erika Hayu Puspita, says that products using safe ingredients, including coloring and taste. Special taste, we use the materials for ice cream.

Although founded in 2001, franchised new Arumanis slide in March 2010. Total outlets Arumanis management is currently managed as many as 19 Rainbow stores, spread out in Bogor, Jakarta, and Cibubur. However, while this location is still held his own in the Greater Jakarta area.

In addition to the region, currently has franchises spread across Lampung, Surabaya, and Medan. While the franchise in Bandung in the licensing process.

Arumanis Rainbow offers a profit sharing scheme. The calculation for the results of the negotiations depends on both parties. However, Prana said, typically the percentage of profit sharing with the owner or franchisee locations approximately 25%.

Prospective franchisees can find strategic locations to place his own booth, such as in shopping centers, schools, tourist attractions, and food stores. We will help the process of licensing, said the Heart.

Prospective franchisee to provide enough money to invest USD 20 million. This includes the procurement of capital Arumanis maker, four-booth displays, packaging tubes of small, medium, and large for Arumanis, initial raw materials, support equipment, production training, employee uniforms, as well as software sales.

With one machine, franchisees can sell Arumanis more than one booth. More booth, behind the calculation of capital will also be faster. Although the initial package was only given four booth displays, the franchisee may request additional. One booth USD 1 million, said the Heart. Franchise or royalty fees every year quotes.

Arumanis is sold in three sizes. Arumanis in a small tube for Rp 7500, the tube was USD 9000, and a large tube of Rp 11,000. There are five flavors available are original, bubble gum, orange, clouds, taste wine, and leaves.

Chairman of the Steering Board of Franchising and Licensing Indonesia Amir Karamoy said, the prospects for this franchise is good because this product kids love and adults. Especially if there are attractions making so that children are more interested. In addition, franchisees maintain absolute cleanliness considering its market is children.


RUPIAH roll of the fold ANEKA TEXTILE FABRIC
Raw materials business has always been a fairly profitable business fields. Position as an intermediary between sellers of raw materials by producers of materials so this was as a meeting point both sides producers in upstream and downstream sectors. This also applies to textile fabrics business players.

Plain fabric to target business people engaged in the garment and fashion industry. Although located in the middle, does not mean the money that rotates a half-half.

Bagyo Sotopo, Marketing Manager of PT Kusuma Clothing Mekarjaya (KSM) in Sleman, Yogyakarta, admitted could rake in revenue of USD 8 billion per month. In that period, KSM can produce a variety of fabrics up to 2 million meters.

Actually, this figure is lower than last year's turnover. Bagyo mention expensive fabric yarn prices as the cause. Yarn prices rose 25% this year. He gave an example, the price of rayon yarn types which last year was USD 5.2 million per bale, now a USD 5.8 million. In fact, CBO does not just sell the cloth, but the processing threads to be woven.

Although the yarn price rise, claims can not participate Bagyo increase the selling price of different fabrics. Men 52 years of consumer rate KSM, including batik crafters, will not be able to absorb it if the price is increased.

Companies that stood since 1989 was made of five types of cloth that is Rayon, Cotton, Tetoron, Tetoron Rayon (TR), and Tetoron Cotton (TC). Each type of fabric is divided again in different variants. KSM product prices within the range of Rp 3,000 to Rp 10,500 per meter.

Bagyo market the fabric to Solo, Pekalongan, Malang, Surabaya, Bandung and Tangerang. Buyers from Tangerang exporting our products to the Middle East.

Other fabric businessperson is Ayin. German cloth business owners in Pekalongan was plunged into the business fabric since 1995. He sold the cotton and silk fabrics. For cotton, he used to take it from Solo and Yogyakarta.

As for the silk, he picked up from importers who bring it from China. Because China's famous silk good quality.

Ayin cotton price of Rp 5,000 to Rp 10,000 per yard. While the price of silk USD 10,000 to USD 50,000.

There are 50 regular customers who are spread in Pekalongan Ayin, Pemalang, Tegal, Cirebon, Bandung, and Jakarta. There are also clients in Bali, Jambi, Palangkaraya, and Makassar.

Before Lebaran, its sales could be doubled twice. However, Ayin not willing to call certain numbers every month turnover.

Ayin just said, his business is a competitive constraint to offer the cheapest prices. While constraints Bagyo, in addition to rising prices of yarn, fabric products are competitive with China. In terms of quality, local products from China and there is no difference. But China's price of cloth can be more oblique. Labor costs and electricity costs us more expensive, said Bagyo.


Grow faster than INDIGO ORDINARY
Nila is one type of freshwater fish widely consumed by people in the country. Understandably, this sense of well-known fish meat is very tasty. Do not be surprised, if the demand for fish that actually comes from Africa continues to increase. This condition is seen as a promising business opportunity by the tilapia fish farmers.

In fact, in order to increase incomes, many farmers are trying to make marriage nila tilapia species which he cultivated. One of the pair inter-marriages between tilapia species, Tilapia SP. Results from this crossing of a new birth of indigo, which is Nila Gift.

Gift name itself comes from the acronym for Genetic Improvement of genetic improvement of farmed Tilapia aka Nila Tilapia aquaculture. This crossing technique developed by the International Centre for Living Aquatic Resources Management (ICLARM) in the Philippines in 1987.

From the testing result, production levels Nila Gift higher 30% -50% of local tilapia. ICLARM pilot fish is then distributed to 10 countries in 1993, namely Bangladesh, China, Côte d'Ivoire, Greece, Ghana, India, Malawi, Thai, Vietnamese and Filipino.

Gift Nila new entry into Indonesia in 1994, through the Research Institute of Freshwater Fishes (Balitkanwar). Nila was then cultivated in three large reservoirs in West Java, namely Cirata, Saguling, and Jatiluhur. Current production of about 20 tons per day.

According to Helmi Suherman, owner of tilapia farming Brilliant Earth Farm in Cianjur, West Java, Nila Gift genetically proven to have the advantage of higher productivity and growth of tilapia diamonds.

According to Deddy Siswandi Rosyid, owner Niaga Jaya Abadi CV in Sukabumi, West Java, the cultivation of indigo with a time of faster growth will benefit the farmers. Deddy therefore also interested wrestle Nila Gift nursery business, namely the maintenance of fish larvae into the seed was about 21 days.

According to him, the demand for seed Nila Gift never lonely. He could sell one million fry per month. Demand comes from many areas, such as Medan, Balikpapan, Aceh and Makassar.

Deddy Nila Gift seed price USD 35 per head. From seed sales, he could reach turnover of Rp 30 million-USD 40 million per month. Margin is about 20% -30%.

In contrast to Deddy, Helmi was more interested in doing business Nila Gift enlargement. He cultivates this kind of indigo in Cirata, Cianjur. Every four months, he's harvest 8 tons of tilapia.

Nila Gift Helmi sell for Rp 11 500-Rp 12,000 per kilogram (kg). From this business, he scooped up turnover to $ 80 million once the harvest.

While Anastasia Sulistio choose undergoing Gift Nila distribution business. He marketed to a number of fishing places in the Greater Jakarta area. Supply from the Bogor area.

Anastasia Nila Gift for Rp 15,000 per kilogram. Saban months, he could supply the five tons of fish up to 6 tons. turnover of each month to reach USD 75 million with a profit margin of about 5% -10%.
          JAPAN INDONESIA FLIGHT HINDERED BY PERMINTS   
BATAVIA EXPANSION PERMITS TO TOKYO hindered by
Indonesian airlines effort to pick up passengers from Japan along with trimming the frequency of flights Japan Air Lines (JAL) as of October 1, 2010 does not seem to run smoothly. Section, the plan of PT Metro Batavia (Batavia Air) to open the route the flight to Narita International Airport in Tokyo in 2010 has not yet received permission from Japanese authorities.

Air Force Director of the Ministry of Transportation (Kemenhub) Tri S. Sunoko explained, dense flight slots at several airports in Japan to make the right permission to fly to the airport is already out. Narita and Haneda airport slots it has been limited. Kemenhub own, Tri-up, will continue to help Batavia to get permission to fly to other international airports in Japan. However, he suggested that Batavia utilize routes other cities that are still loose his slot as Yokohama or Nagoya.

Batavia Air own party welcomed the government's advice. Batavia Public Relation Manager Haryanto Eddy said, did not rule, maskapinya will fly to the city government suggested.

They could, while we waited for two units of Airbus A321 A330200 and we will bring the year 2010, said Eddy.
Batavia Air, continued Eddy, will also conduct market studies in several cities in Japan other than Tokyo. Essentially we will be looking for more potential passenger market.

In 2010, Batavia Air merencanakn to open international flight routes. As to Tokyo (Japan), Seoul (South Korea), Hong Kong (China), Bangkok (Thailand), Dhaka (Bangladesh) and Jeddah (Riyadh).

Previously, the airline has been flying international routes such as to Singapore, Guangzhou, and Kuching (Malaysia). While for domestic routes, Batavia has been flying to 39 cities across Indonesia.

As with the Batavia Air, fortune PT Garuda Indonesia (Persero) is better. The airline this red plate to get additional rights to fly to Narita Airport, Japan. From as many as seven times a week so 14 times in a week.

According to Tri, Garuda has been requested since 2008. So there's no excuse for governments not to grant such rights to fly Garuda.

For information, late April 2010, the Government of Indonesia and Japan agreed to increase aviation rights between the two countries to a maximum of 75 flights per week. This amount increased by 100% of the total that is 37.5 times the previous flight. Indonesia's agreement allows airlines to open flights to major cities in Japan. Origin, they landed at the international airport.


          IGDA executive director Kate Edwards steps down   
Kate Edwards

The International Game Developers Association's executive director Kate Edwards is stepping down after almost five years in the post. In the mean time, chair of the board of directors and Beamdog CEO Trent Oster will serve as an interim executive director until a replacement is found.

During Edwards' five year tenure, the IGDA has expanded into a number of new regions, including Bangladesh, Egypt, Estonia, Georgia and Tunisia, and Edwards has signed more than 300 peer advisory letters of recommendation for game developers trying to get work visas in the US. 

She's also been a key figure on social issues in the games industry, and was one of the first to speak out against GamerGate and the practice of 'crunch time'. 

Trent Oster commented: “Kate has been an important industry leader for the IGDA in this role, doing heroic work as an advocate for developers of all backgrounds. Her accomplishments have carried the IGDA through tough times and helped countless developers on their journeys. We look forward to seeing what Kate accomplishes in what is certain to continue to be a bright career.”

Edwards added: "It’s been a great honor to help game developers from all walks of life, all over the world, succeed in our industry,” says Edwards. “I want to thank the IGDA board, staff and all its members whose advocacy has made a difference for our community, and I look forward to following the association’s continued success.”

          Preying on disaster: How human trafficking has spiked in quake-shattered Nepal   
The year following two earthquakes that devastated Nepal saw a spike in desperate people falling into the clutches of human traffickers. Two years later, with the country’s infrastructure and economy still in ruins, NGOs say human trafficking is still on the rise.
 
Nepal has long been a source of economic migrants, and the money they’ve sent home from Gulf countries and neighbouring India has helped to feed families and build homes. Almost a million of those houses were destroyed or damaged in the quakes of 25 April and 12 May 2015, which encouraged more people to migrate, some of whom have been trafficked into unpaid labour or sex slavery.
 
Nepal’s National Human Rights Commission reported a 15 percent increase in the number interceptions of people “vulnerable” to human traffickers during the three months following the quakes.
 
That trend shows no sign of slowing, according to the anti-trafficking NGO Maiti Nepal, as well as Indian border security officials. “We continue to see a rise in trafficking cases and in interceptions at the border,” said Shivani Chemjong of Maiti.
 
The NGO stations people at border crossings with India and intervenes if women and children are suspected of being trafficked. Last year, Chemjong said, Maiti “intercepted” more than 5,700 “vulnerable girls”; in 2014 – the year before the quake – the figure was 2,900.
 
The Sahastra Seema Bal, the Indian force guarding the 1,751-kilometre border, also reported an increase. In a statement last month, the SSB said officers intervened in the cases of 33 victims of human trafficking in 2014, compared to 336 in 2015 and 501 in 2016. And the SSB has found 180 cases of human trafficking in just the first three months of this year. 
 

Rescued

 
In a small workshop in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, about a dozen women between the ages of 14 and 20 sat at tables, diligently threading beads into jewellery. Each was recently rescued after being trafficked, and was now receiving support, including skills training, from a local NGO, Shakti Samuha, which was established and is run by survivors of trafficking.
 
Shakti Samuha also provides trafficking victims with housing and psychological support, as well as tracking down their families and counselling them. Families often do not welcome trafficking victims home, especially if they have worked in the sex industry. For protection reasons, the NGO declined to reveal their identities or details of their experiences.
 
The young women preferred instead to focus on the future.
 
"I'd like to learn computer skills, and teach other girls after learning them myself,” said one.

More programmes like this are needed, according to the US State Department’s Trafficking in Persons 2016 report. It notes that, in the aftermath of the 2015 quakes, NGOs and the government increased “services and access to vulnerable populations”, but “referral efforts remained ad hoc and inadequate”.
 

Thwarted efforts

 
The Nepalese government has taken measures to curb human trafficking as well, but they are limited in effect.
 
Agencies that recruit overseas workers must be registered and based in Kathmandu. They may employ agents based in district capitals who are prohibited from charging recruits for their services. 
 
In practice, though, there is little oversight. Advocates for trafficking victims say agents sometimes falsely promise women legitimate domestic work and men construction jobs overseas, mainly in India and Gulf states. 
 
Once they are there, some women find themselves sold into sex slavery, and many are told they must work until they pay off unforeseen fees.
 
“In many cases, the imposition of high fees facilitates forced labor, and recruitment agencies engage in fraudulent recruitment,” the US State Department report says.
 
Nepali embassies in six Gulf nations provide emergency shelters for vulnerable women, including trafficking victims, but the report says they are “inadequate to support the high demand for assistance”.

One way to try to curb trafficking is to restrict air travel out of the country. Nepal's Department of Foreign Employment mandates that all migrants undergo pre-departure training before receiving a stamp of approval from the Labour Ministry, without which they can be prevented from boarding flights.
 
However, traffickers often avoid such restrictions by bringing people over the porous land border into India.
 
An ornamented gateway marks the busy Nepalgunj-Rupaidiha border point, where 4,000 people from Nepal cross into India each day on foot, battery rickshaws, or horse-drawn carts, according to SSB officials.
 
“If there is no proof of wrongdoing, we cannot detain vulnerable women travellers as it can look like harassment,” said one senior SSB officer who asked not to be named as he was not authorised to speak to media.
 
Once in India, they may be sold into slavery or put on flights to countries beyond.
 
Nilambar Badal of Asian Forum, an NGO that works with returned migrants, explained how the traffickers are always one step ahead.
 
“The [Nepalese] government has asked India to hold special screenings at the airports. So instead of flying out of Delhi or Mumbai, the girls fly from small airports like Lucknow or Amritsar,” he said. “From there, they can pretend to be on a trip to Sri Lanka, Singapore or Bangladesh, and onward to the Gulf.”

          Sahana, prima bambina colpita da sindrome Uomo albero   
Dacca (Bangladesh) Sahana Khatun ha solo 10 anni e' rischia di passare alla storia come la prima bambina albero! Nata e cresciuta in un piccolo villaggio in Bangladesh, la sua vita e' cambiata completamente cinque mesi fa, quando sul suo corpo sono iniziate a spuntare delle strane escrescenze cutanee. Inizialmente considerate delle semplici verruche curabili in pochi giorni con medicinali antibiotici, sono state trascurate dalla stessa famiglia della bambina. I primi sentori di allarme sono iniziati quando le presunte verruche hanno iniziato ad estendersi anche sul volto della piccola. Trasporta nella lontana citta' di Dacca, la bambina e' stata sottoposta alle prime cure.La diagnosi degli specialisti e' stata un fulmine a ciel sereno per i genitori, umili contadini. Sahana, potrebbe essere affetta da una rara malattia genetica, nota come epidermodisplasia verruciforme, volgarmente conosciuta come malattia dell'uomo albero, infatti nelle forme piu' gravi, il paziente viene ricoperto interamente da verruche di grosse dimensioni, tanto da renderlo simile ad un albero vivente. Al mondo sono poche le persone affette da questa malattia (200 da quando venne scoperta nel 1920), 'stranamente ' tutte risiedono in quella zona del mondo, nell'area del Bangladesh. Sahana sarebbe inoltre il primo caso che riguarda una donna. L'epidermodisplasia verruciforme, e' una genodermatosi rara, autosomica e recessiva associata al rischio di carcinoma della cute. E' caratterizzata da un'abnorme suscettibilita' della pelle al Virus del papilloma umano (HPV) caratterizzata da un'infezione cronica e disseminata. Il risultato dell'infezione incontrollata causa la formazione disseminata di papule, squame ed escrescenze che colpiscono in particolare le mani ed i piedi. La speranza ora e' che Sahana abbia una forma meno aggressiva, come sembrerebbe, dei casi piu' noti alla comunita' scientifica, tutti relativi a soggetti maschili, e che possa avere una prognosi migliore.R.R.

          Critical Appreciation - Fire by Taslima Nasrin   
Picture Credit HERE
This is a critical appreciation of Taslima Nasrin’s poem in Celebrating India Love without Borders published by Nivasini Publishers. Everything said here is my personal interpretation and should not be taken as the publisher’s or poet’s point of view.









Fire by Taslima Nasrin
He is my husband, the dictionary says that he’s
my
chief, lord, master, et cetera et cetera
Society agrees that he is my god.
My doddering old husband has learned well
the prevailing rules and regulations to exert
authority
He’s very eager to stroll over the bride of
eternity
to the glittering realm of paradise,
he wants all kinds of fruits, brightly-coloured
cordials and delicious foods,
he lusts after
the fair-skinned bodies of bouris to chew, suck
and lick.
Nothing’s written on my forehead but ill fate,
I spend my lifespan in society thrusting chunks
of firewood
into the oven of these earthly days.
In the afterlife I see my doddering husband
exult over the seventy-seven pleasures of sex.
I am alone, in the joyous garden of paradise I’m
alone.
Watching the blind obscenity of men
I burn inside in the everlasting fires of hell,
a chaste and virtuous woman.

At the face of it, what might come across as a purely feminist point of view, hides within its covers, a much deeper meaning than the subject of the poem, that being, the subjugation of women by men because society too supports and propagates this way of life. Whether a man is lame, old, deaf or dumb, his position, vis-a-vis women is always that of superiority. Taslima Nasrin laments this position and burns with anger within, yet must accept this as her ‘fate’ because, the man in her poem is her husband. And although she is seething inside, she must bear silently, as he enjoys all the luxuries of life, including his enormous appetite for women and sex.

But, if one looks deeper, the reader may see many other levels to this poem. For instance, from a psychological point of view, there is forever a conflict within the mind, between the norms of society outside and the desires of the female body inside. And although she herself is capable of far more intensity in love and sex, women allow the norms of society to bind them. The pleasure deriving sexual object she can luxuriate in, is in deep conflict within her, and must find her expression, mostly out of the normative framework of society, rather than within it. Hence, standing on the periphery and talking of the chains she is bound in, is to some extent, in my opinion, redundant.

From a philosophical point of view, the purusha/prakriti, outside/inside dynamics is the larger picture of the world. There is an inherent attraction/resistancein the very coexistence of these two phenomenons. What Taslima Nasrin does not spell out in her poem is what she is doing about this state of injustice. Seething in anger, but bearing it silently, because it is her ‘fate’ is a passive reaction to the situation. Unless she is willing to turn a submissive to an active, the purpose of lamenting the state is uninspiring.

From a personal point of view, the poet’s lamentation is indicative of her own state of being, the prisoner in her own body, which might agitate but is far from being free of the shackles that a male dominated society has bound around her. Thus, the poem expresses in no uncertain terms, her anger, which we can easily assume to be directed towards herself, only.

Taslima Nasrin, is a doctor by profession, who prefers to follow her passion for writing prose and poetry and is socially involved in bringing about change through the power of the written word. She shot to fame when she authored Lajja, which brought forth the wrath of the clergy in her own land, Bangladesh and ever since, she has been a resident of many lands. “In 1992, she won a major Kolkata literary Award for a collection of her co-ed columns and essays that criticised political leaders, literacy figures, and conservative religious values that conspired to oppress women.” (pg 183, Celebrating India Love Without Borders). Between these years she attempted to seek asylum in India, living in Kolkata, but was finally not granted it. Her heart wrenching plea that she found Kolkata closest to her ‘home’ went debated, but not granted.

“Because of her thoughts and ideas she has been banned, blacklisted and banished from Bengal, both from Bangladesh and West Bengal part of India. She has been prevented by the authorities from returning to her country since 1994, and to West Bengal since 2007.” ( See HERE )


Needless to say, the anger inside her must be so self-consuming, that it has tinted her tongue and her poem. It is her own state of alienation she is speaking of in the poem, where she is the protagonist, the shackled prisoner burning in anger, the woman.

Trying to control--& finally asphyxiate--opinion & facts has been the persistent leit motif of rulers who're fearful of knowledge & debate.

The reality, however, is as proven by history, these efforts ultimately don't help the ruling cliques, rather--ironically--they hasten their departure.

          Merchant Banking Operation: A Case Study of Selected Merchant Banks in Bangladesh   

In Bangladesh the establishment of merchant bank added value to the stock market which plays a vital role in the progress of economic development. This study tried to analyze the performance of Lanka Bangla Investment Ltd., Prime Finance Capital Management Ltd., IDLC Investment Ltd. and Uttara Finance and Investment Ltd. Seven trend equations have been tested for different activities of the selected merchant banks. It is observed that the selected merchant banks were able to achieve a stable growth of investment in securities, margin loan to clients, brokerage commission, capital gain/loss from securities, portfolio management services, issue management fees, corporate advisory fees and underwriting commission during the period of 2011-2015. Among them the trend equation of investment in securities, margin loan to clients, and corporate advisory fees are positive incase of all the selected merchant banks. Square of correlation coefficient (r2) has also been tested for all trend equations. The r2 of interest income from merchant bank, portfolio management services, settlement and transaction fees and documentation fees, is more than 0.5. It indicates the prospect of merchant banks in Bangladesh is bright.


          Stock Market Investors’ Guide to Corporate Dividend Policy: Evidence from Pharmaceuticals and Chemicals Industries in Bangladesh   

Dividend policy has been an important component in the arena of financial literature and providing evidence that dividend payout decisions are affected by various factors. Numerous studies have been conducted so far on corporate dividend policy in Bangladesh. The pharmaceuticals and chemicals industries of Bangladesh offer a lot of investment panorama for the retail investors. This research has been an endeavor to determine the factors affecting the dividend policy of these promising industries, and guide the investment decisions of the equity investors. In this attempt, this study is also a unique one to incorporate the chemicals industry along with the pharmaceuticals industry as both the industries constitute the 'pharmaceuticals and chemicals sector' listed in the stock market of Bangladesh. The study is a quantitative one based on secondary data. It comprises of different statistical analyses such as descriptive statistics, correlation matrix and multiple linear regression analysis, etc. Firm size, growth, liquidity, profitability, last year's dividend and P/E ratio are used as dependent variables. Besides, ownership structure, firm age, market share, and risk are used as control variables. The study explores that firm size has significant negative and last year’s dividend has significant positive relationship with dividend payout. However, dividend payout does not depend on firm growth, liquidity, profitability and P/E ratio of a firm. The research outcome may have important implications for the improvement of investors' perceptions, which may assist them in their investment decisions in the researched industries. Certainly more work lies ahead to add to explanations for why some of the factors affect the dividend policy of the industries, while others have no significant impact thereon.

In the Pyithu Hluttaw meeting held yesterday, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs U Kyaw Tin responded to a question by U Hla Htay Win of Zeyathiri constituency on arrangements made by the government on objecting and resisting a resolution by United Nations Human Rights Council forming and sending a Rakhine State fact-finding mission.


Minister of State U Kyaw Tin said the Human Rights Council at its 34th regular session on 24 March 2017 adopted the resolution without a vote.

Since Myanmar is not a member country of the Human Rights Council, it does not have a right to demand a vote on the resolution. However, when the resolution was made, Myanmar permanent representative to Human Rights Council do not agree with the resolution and dissociate from it. Similarly, council member countries like India and China also voiced their disagreement said the Minister of State.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement on March 24 rejecting the resolution and dissociated from it. When Human Rights Council president contacted Myanmar permanent representative on the formation of the fact-finding mission, Myanmar permanent representative explained that since Myanmar officially dissociated from the resolution, it will not cooperate in the process. Myanmar embassies were also informed of not allowing the fact-finding mission into Myanmar added the Minister of State.

In the State Counsellor’s trips to European Union headquarter and western countries in May and June, she had rejected the forming and sending of the fact-finding mission. She also rejected firmly about this in wherever country she went on a visit.

An Investigation Committee to probe the background situations that led to violent attacks that occurred on 9 October and 12-13 of November in Maungtaw, Rakhine State led by Vice President U Myint Swe was formed in 1 December 2016 and it was conducting investigations in the areas where the incident happen. Arrangements were made with Bangladesh for the commission to visit Cox Bazar in Bangladesh to conduct investigations and once a report from this commission is published, it will effectively counter the international pressure on accepting the fact-finding mission.

Suggestions in an Interim Report of Rakhine State Advisory Commission headed by former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan will also be implemented in accordance to the ground situation said Minister of State U Kyaw Tin.

Responding to a question by Daw Cho Cho of Ottwin constituency on repair and upgrading 25 beds Ottwin Township Hospital, Union Minister for Health and Sports Dr. Myint Htwe said fund for repair work is ready for allocation if the medical officer in the hospital request for it but there is no plan to upgrade the hospital as the patient occupancy rate is not up to the level requiring an upgrade. An upgrade will be considered once the occupancy rate reaches the set level added the Union Minister.

Union Minister for Health and Sports Dr. Myint Htwe also answered to health related questions asked by U Moe Shwe of Putao constituency and Dr. Oo Aung Khin of Pyin Oo Lwin constituency.

Next, a motion urging the government to draw a sports calendar and hold sports competition in basic education schools, universities and colleges to develop outstanding sports personnel honoring the country and developing Myanmar sports submitted by UTin Htway of Waw constituency was discussed by 11 hluttaw representatives and Union Minister Dr. Myint Htwe explained to approve it.

Hluttaw then decided to approve the motion.

Additionally, the day’s meeting included hluttaw deciding and confirming the bill on amending the guardian and ward law, the reading of annual reports of Pyithu Hluttaw economic and financial development committee and transport, communication and construction committee.

          Ytterligare en journalist stoppades av säkerhetstjänsten   
Ytterligare en journalist blev stoppad av den bangladeshiska säkerhetstjänsten under statsbesöket i Stockholm för två veckor sedan. ”Jag tycker att det är dåligt att de tillåts agera så här i Sverige”, säger journalisten som vill vara anonym.
          UD lägger ansvaret på Säpo   
Utrikesdepartementet förnekar att bangladeshisk säkerhetstjänst ska ha agerat i samförstånd med representanter för svenska regeringen när de tvingade journalisten Anwar Hossain att radera bilder i sin mobiltelefon på Rosenbad. UD lägger ansvaret för händelsen på Säpo som ska se över rutinerna.

Trece compañías textiles acuerdan mejorar la seguridad de las fábricas en Bangladesh.
Trece compañías textiles acuerdan mejorar la seguridad de las fábricas en Bangladesh. 
E.P.
Al menos 13 grandes marcas textiles llegaron a un acuerdo este jueves en el que se comprometen a mejorar las condiciones laborales de hasta dos millones de trabajadores en Bangladesh. Un acuerdo que trata de renovar el compromiso de 2013, tras el desastre de Rana Plaza en Daca, donde más de mil personas murieron por el derrumbe de una fábrica, y cuyas medidas para mejorar la seguridad laboral no se han aplicado.

Al menos trece compañías textiles, entre las que se encuentran Inditex, Primark o Lidl, acordaron mejorar las condiciones laborales de los trabajadores de cerca de mil fábricas en Bangladesh, lo que podría beneficiar a más de dos millones de personas, la mitad de los trabajadores textiles del país. El compromiso entrará en vigor en mayo de 2018 y tendrá una duración de solo tres años.

El acuerdo propone mejoras en la seguridad de los empleados y endurece las inspecciones a las hilanderías, las instalaciones de limpieza y de tinte de tejidos. Algunas de las empresas firmantes son Primark, H&M, Inditex, Aldi, Lidl, C&A, Kmart Australia, Target Australia, Otto, KiK, Tchibo y LC Waikiki. Se espera que otras compañías se sumen al acuerdo durante los próximos días.

Se calcula que al menos cuatro millones de personas trabajan en la industria textil de Bangladesh, este acuerdo afectaría a cerca de la mitad de los empleados. Las marcas que fabrican sus productos en el país asiático son frecuentemente criticadas por los bajos estándares de seguridadbajos salarios y horarios excesivos a los que someten a sus trabajadores.

En el desastre de Rana Plaza en 2013, 1.135 personas murieron tras el derrumbe de un edificio de ocho plantas donde se alojaban cinco fábricas. El accidente, en Daca, la capital del segundo país que más ropa confeccionada exporta al exterior, provocó protestas por la seguridad de los trabajadores y aumentó la presión sobre las compañías que compran sus productos.

Tras el derrumbe se alcanzó un acuerdo que fijó estándares de seguridad en las instalaciones eléctricas y contra incendios y que obligaba a más de 1.500 fábricas a instalar puertas cortafuegos y refuerzos en los edificios. Sin embargo, cuatro años más tarde, el 80 por ciento de las fábricas siguen sin cumplir los requisitos, según reconocen los propios firmantes del acuerdo.

"Piedras en el camino"

Sindicatos y compañías reconocen que todavía queda muchopara frenar el "abuso" a los trabajadores, según denuncian organizaciones, pero consideran el acuerdo de este jueves como "un paso adelante".

"El acuerdo todavía no ha cumplido todos sus objetivos, pero es un avance enorme en comparación con todas las iniciativas que lo precedieron", declaró la directora del grupo de derechos laborales Maquila Solidarity Network, Lynda Yanz.

"Implementar el acuerdo ha sido un desafío y ha encontrado muchos obstáculos en el camino. Sin embargo, el progreso alcanzado es una realidad e implica decenas de miles de mejoras en seguridad y va a reducir los riesgos laborales de millones de trabajadores", añadió.

          Extension of Saudi amnesty for illegal residents is welcomed

RIYADH: The decision to extend Saudi Arabia’s amnesty for violators of residence and employment regulations has been widely welcomed, as it gives people one more chance to leave the Kingdom without penalty.
The General Directorate of Passports (GDP) on Thursday announced that a 90-day amnesty period, launched on March 29 under the “A Nation Without Violations” campaign, is being extended for another 30 days, effective from June 25.
It applies to people of all nationalities, and allows those staying illegally in the Kingdom to leave voluntarily without facing legal action.
The decision was taken to enforce a national campaign to track and control violators of residence, employment and border-security systems. It gives violators the opportunity to leave the Kingdom at their own expense, while allowing them to return later by legal process.
Mohammed Azizuddin, an Indian businessman and volunteer who helped several illegal workers during the 90-day amnesty, welcomed the decision to extend its duration.
“It is indeed good news for the overstaying Indian friends,” he said.
Ali Thamby, a Sri Lankan national working in Riyadh as an accountant who has done social work in his community, appreciated the move by the Saudi government.
“It came as a sigh of relief to many illegally staying workers, especially those who started the procedure to return home by taking the benefit of the 90-day grace period announced earlier, but could not complete the paperwork in time for some technical reason,” Thamby said. “Now they can do it in extended time to leave the Kingdom to avoid the legal action.”
Mohammed Mohsin, a Bangladeshi worker in Riyadh, described the decision as a golden opportunity for illegal workers who could not complete their paperwork to leave the Kingdom earlier.
The 30-day extension of the amnesty period is in line with directives of Minister of Interior Prince Abdul Aziz bin Saud bin Naif, according to Director General of Passports Maj. Gen. Sulaiman bin Abdul Aziz Al-Yahya.
Al-Yahya, according to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), urged all illegal expats who were not able to benefit from the previous grace period, as well as those who completed the procedures but were not able to depart, to immediately visit one of the reception centers to complete the necessary process.

          the pitchfork solution to world inequality   
Each year Oxfam delivers a report about how the inequality in the world is getting worse and how this needs to stop. This year, I was encouraged by a marginal note from Nick Hanauer, one of the Super Rich, who warns his fellow billionarie's that:
‘No society can sustain this kind of rising inequality. In fact, there is no example in human history where wealth accumulated like this and the pitchforks didn’t eventually come out.’
- the pitchforks are coming ... for us Plutocrats
Now, what did that Oxfam report say?
  • Since 2015, the richest 1% has owned more wealth than the rest of the planet.
  • Eight men now own the same amount of wealth as the poorest half of the world.
  • Over the next 20 years, 500 people will hand over $2.1 trillion to their heirs – a sum larger than the GDP of India, a country of 1.3 billion people.
  • The incomes of the poorest 10% of people increased by less than $3 a year between 1988 and 2011, while the incomes of the richest 1% increased 182 times as much.
  • A FTSE-100 (Financial Times Stock Exchange 100) CEO earns as much in a year as 10,000 people in working in garment factories in Bangladesh.
  • In the US, new research by economist Thomas Piketty shows that over the last 30 years the growth in the incomes of the bottom 50% has been zero, whereas incomes of the top 1% have grown 300%.
  • In Vietnam, the country’s richest man earns more in a day than the poorest person earns in 10 years.

          On Yashpal's Jhootha Sach (This Is Not That Dawn)   
This essay appeared last weekend in The National.


Any reader who has a feeling for the rigours and small miracles of novelistic composition is especially likely to be transported by the awesome narrative freedom and strength of the great long novels of world literature. Having broken through the walls of artistic and formal finitude over hundreds of pages of scene-setting, plot-threading and character tracking, such novels, or novel sequences – IB Singer’s The Family Moskat, Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, Naguib Mahfouz’s Cairo Trilogy, Orhan Pamuk’s The Museum of Innocence – seem almost to write themselves, continuously unspooling and ramifying in the same way as life. Indeed, it seems a diminution of life to have to break with their company.

On one level, of course, the great long novels represent nothing more than an especially massy story – a map of human motion and connection on a grand scale. But is that all? Their size would be (and sometimes is) worth very little if we did not also take away from them the extended experience of mind, of an encounter with not just a world but a subtle, disembodied intelligence – the narrator – observing and occasionally annotating its ferment. To observe a story-world for weeks, even months, in concert with a novelistic narrator is to return to the world outside the book to find something strangely absent, or limited, or silent about it. Sometimes when we find ourselves missing the characters of a novel, what we are actually missing is the narrator.

This is the experience we take away from the Indian novelist Yashpal’s massive novel Jhootha Sach (literally The False Truth), first published in Hindi in two volumes in 1958 and 1960, and now translated into English for the first time as This Is Not That Dawn. The novel is over 1,100 pages long, but it is long only in an absolute sense, not relative to the dozens of characters it describes, the ideas it explores, and the narrative time (and indeed geographical space) it traverses.

Following a family from their roots in a gali, or lane, in the great city of Lahore (now in Pakistan) to a new life in the cities of north India over the 1940s and 1950s, Yashpal’s novel takes as its central, world-changing event the partition in 1947 of colonial India into the nation states of India and Pakistan. The bloodbath that resulted from this massive, uncontrolled two-way migration of peoples across the new boundaries of what was formerly undivided Punjab – Hindus streaming east into India from what had now become Pakistan, Muslims west into Pakistan in the fear that they would have no place in a new Indian nation state – took at least a million lives. Partition left a gash on the psyche of the Indian subcontinent that has never quite healed, and that inflames the politics of both countries, as well as Bangladesh, to this day.

The novel’s central characters are two siblings, Jaidev and Tara Puri, who live in a small, tightly knit Hindu community in a lane called Bhola Pandhe’s Gali in the old walled city of Lahore. Among the ways in which Yashpal’s novel links the lives and loves of its middle-class characters to the great churning in the public sphere of Lahore and Delhi in the 1940s is by setting them within the overlapping worlds of journalism, literature and education in Lahore (no other Indian novel is so much in love with the idea of the newspaper, and the newspaper’s power as a voice of reason in the public sphere). Puri is an idealistic young writer and journalist who has already served a prison sentence for the cause of the freedom movement. Tara is a college student excited by the intellectual freedom of the university – one that is not available in the world of the gali, with its family and gender hierarchies – but troubled by her engagement to a man she hardly knows.

In the novel’s opening movement, we see Puri (as he is called by the narrator) vexed by his inability to find a job and the social obstacles in the way of his marrying Kanak, the daughter of a prosperous publisher. Tara, meanwhile, feels that her world will come to an end if she is made to marry Somraj Sahni, her loutish fiance. But these problems pale into insignificance compared to the crisis that suddenly appears like a dark cloud over Lahore, as the British prepare to leave India. The Hindus of Bhola Pandhe Gali fear that Lahore might be ceded, as part of the two-nation theory that has gained currency in undivided India, to the new, primarily Muslim nation state of Pakistan.

“What if there’s a Pakistan or there’s a Hindustan? We’re Lahorites, neighbours of Doongi Gali,” declares one of the family’s optimistic friends. But as the book shows, this cosmopolitan vision of history and community has little chance against the drumroll of nationalism, and the combustible fear of the other lying just beneath the surface of the subcontinent’s social life.

Yet the novel also shows us that, at the time, Partition was not imagined to be a complete sealing-off of two geographically and culturally contiguous territories from each other, as turned out to be the case eventually. People left behind their homes, families, cities and countries imagining that they would soon be back once things had settled. But often they never returned, or returned to find that everything they owned had been taken.

The paradox most strikingly explored by the novel is that the very (allegedly foundational) categories of Hinduism and Islam that were the basis of Partition proved powerless, despite their scriptural emphasis on peace and justice, to stop the cataclysms of violence visited by each side upon the other. People of both sides looted, killed and raped, “all in the name of God”, as one character sorrowfully observes.

Repeatedly in This Is Not That Dawn, characters are shown jettisoning their private moral compasses because they are convinced that blood must be spilled to avenge the spilling of blood. Yashpal’s novel, on a scale equal to the complexity of the matter at hand, shows us how the question of justice is rarely contemplated by human beings in the abstract, or outside the pressures of time or frame of history – and that in a crisis, this tendency can prove to be mortal while continuing to believe itself moral. These conceptions of “comparative justice” are still doing the rounds of the subcontinent to this day, as during the gruesome religious riots in the state of Gujarat in 2002.

If This Is Not That Dawn is nevertheless a deeply pleasurable book, it is because it offers a world so vividly imagined that the quotidian acquires the same significance as the apocalyptic. The novel is steeped in meaningful details that reveal the networks and pressures of space, gender (“the afternoons in the galis belonged to the women ... If a male had to come back to the gali for some reason, he would clear his throat loudly to warn the women”), family and tradition in the small, hermetic world of Bhola Pandhe’s Gali in Lahore, and then out across the fields of city and nation.

As both Puri and Tara are thrust out into the world – Puri when he leaves Lahore in search of a job; Tara when she is abducted by a Muslim man after escaping from Sahni’s house on the night of her wedding – they are forced to bear the violence and derangement of Partition upon their bodies and then, finding themselves still alive, decide what to make of their battered selves. Although it appears for the longest time that Puri, with his idealism, his love of language, his political vision and his diligence, is the book’s hero, we see him gradually sinking, over a thousand pages, under the weight of his own worldly power in the new Indian republic and somewhat insecure masculinity – an unforgettable narrative arc. Revealingly, it is his involvement with the Indian National Congress that gradually leaches the idealism from Puri.

Instead, it is Tara, the apparently helpless, brutalised victim, who slowly gathers strength and makes an independent life for herself in the Indian capital, Delhi, watching out not just for herself but for other women in trouble. The storyline reveals not just Yashpal’s feminism – once she has a modicum of power and agency, Tara repeatedly resists any attempts to return her back to a normative world of female deference and duty – but also his emphasis on the individual’s right to dissent from the collective.

This Is Not That Dawn was written just a few years after the Indian constitution offered a new vision of rights, responsibilities and secular freedom to Indian citizens – a vision of a political order more egalitarian and enabling than any previously held in the history of the subcontinent. It might be thought to be the narrative and novelistic companion to that document, all the more compelling because its worldview is implied – parcelled out into the experiences and reflections of dozens of characters, and across the novelistic timespan of nearly two decades – and not spelt out from above.

Ten years into the life of the new nation, Yashpal sat down to compose an epic story, scrubbed free of nationalist cant, about the passion and tragedy that attended its birth. In doing so, he produced the first great novel about the ideals and implications of a new view of Indianness, a novel whose mingled vision of realism and idealism rings true to this day.

          World: Most successful Global Ramadan campaign ever   
Source: Islamic Relief
Country: Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Chad, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Syrian Arab Republic, World, Yemen

This year’s global Ramadan food distribution campaign was the most successful ever, raising £7.5 million from across the world, including every continent.

With these generously donated funds, Islamic Relief distributed 250,000 large food packs in 35 countries, reaching 2 million people.

Our teams reached some of the poorest and most remote and dangerous places in the world, including in Iraq, Syria, Somalia and Yemen.

In charge of the whole global operation is Zaheer Afzal, Seasonal Programmes Manager. Explaining how we manage to reach such remote communities he says:

“Our biggest strength is that we have local offices with staff and partners on the ground across the countries where we work all year round and they have excellent relations established with local community leaders and authorities on the ground. This means we can get to some areas where many other organisations can’t. It’s about locals helping locals.

“In Chad, our staff travelled for two whole days to reach refugees from the Central African Republic and in Pakistan, our staff travelled to the most remote mountainous areas in the north of the country. In Afghanistan, beneficiaries travelled for miles on donkeys to meet our staff in some of the most remote and challenging areas of the country.”

Before carrying out the distributions we do a needs assessment to make sure that the food packs will meet those most in need. And this means people of all faiths and none.

All the food is procured locally and is tailored to local tastes or needs.

“For example, in African countries they like millet and flour and extra sugar,” explains Zaheer. “. In Bangladesh they like rice, chickpeas and lentils. In Somalia, they don’t even have basic foodstuffs so we make sure we provide this.”

It is a massive operation from start to finish, starting with the needs assessment, then transferring the funds, procuring the food at a decent price and then organising the logistics for the distribution.

Zaheer is very proud of the teams who carry out the work.

“Many of the staff are operating in extreme temperatures while they are fasting but this doesn’t hinder their work. In fact, sometimes when they return they say more people need our help, can we please distribute some more.”

When all of this work is finished there is no time to rest as we have already started organising the Qurbani distributions for Eid Al-Adha.

Zaheer explains: “Time is of the essence as food prices increase in the run up to Eid Al-Adha, just as they do for Eid Al-Fitr. We need to make sure we get the best possible prices so we can reach as many people as possible.”

          An Enlightened American Businessman Says: "What I Built -- With Government Help"   
From The Washington Post -- August 17, 2012:

What I built — with government help

By James C. Roumell, Published: August 17

James C. Roumell founded Roumell Asset Management LLC.

I was born in Detroit in 1961 and grew up in a working-class neighborhood just south of the famed 8 Mile Road. My block was stable; most of the fathers of my friends worked in the auto plants. In 1968 my parents divorced and my mother, armed with a high school degree, was thrust into the workforce. We were taken out of our Catholic school and moved into public schools. Dinner was often breakfast foods, which was fine with us. Mom is still a great cook.

Today, I own a small business, an asset management firm with $300 million in assets. Last year we launched the Roumell Opportunistic Value Fund (RAMSX) and hired three more people. We’re growing and creating jobs. I suppose I could pound my chest and take credit for my journey from Detroit to Chevy Chase, from working class to professional. I could say I built it myself. But this wouldn’t be true.

In 1967, Detroit’s riots came to our neighborhood and our dry cleaner was burned to the ground. The National Guard was called in, and peace was quickly restored. Mom found a good job with a trucking company and was able to adequately care for our family on a union wage fought for by the Teamsters in an environment supported by the National Labor Relations Act of 1935.

I went to college with the help of Pell Grants and government loans. Twenty years ago I met Claiborne Pell and was able to thank the former Democratic senator from Rhode Island for introducing the Higher Education Act of 1965, which allowed me to go to college.

My business has been made possible by the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. These laws created practices and transparency that enabled a financial services industry to emerge. After the stock market collapse of 1929, the public rightly did not trust Wall Street and needed assurances that the industry would operate within a reliable set of rules.

Nothing in terms of “regulations” or “business uncertainty” has stopped me from investing capital for a return. In fact, the stability that government involvement brought to the capital markets over the past three years, evidenced by a 100 percent increase in the Standard and Poor’s 500-stock index since March 2009, probably enabled my business to survive. The federal government’s back-stopping of money market funds in the fall of 2008 ended, effectively in one day, what was turning into a 1930s-style bank run.

Of course, I worked hard. As a boy I delivered newspapers and cut grass. In high school I was a short-order cook, landscaper and factory worker. I entered the financial services industry in 1986, and in 1992 I struck out on my own with a new baby and little savings. I learned what a panic attack was, for sure.

I did work harder, and perhaps more imaginatively, than many colleagues. But does that mean I built it myself? Does it diminish my success to be grateful for the public investments that so clearly contributed to my success? Every successful person knows, and will admit if he is honest, that luck played a role in his good fortune.

The countries that spend the least on government as a percentage of their economy (gross domestic product) are countries with little business success. Haiti, Bangladesh and Afghanistan spend 16, 13 and 9 percent of their GDP, respectively. Our federal government has spent around 20 percent of GDP since World War II. Europe typically spends slightly over 50 percent, so we’re a long way off even after factoring in an additional 15 percent for state and local government spending.

To be clear, I’m not suggesting that the United States pursue a European economic model. My story, in fact, probably would not have happened in most European countries.

I’m a businessman with little patience for waste, fraud and abuse. On a daily basis I ask, “What’s the return?” No common-sensical person wants capital to be poorly allocated. This country needs long-term entitlement reform, and we have to more evenly match spending to revenue.

Last year I paid 22.6 percent in federal taxes after all the special deductions afforded me. That’s a pretty darn low effective rate by historical standards, and it’s low for all I receive from this country. My business depends on a country that continues to make savvy investments in its infrastructure, in its oversight of industry and in its people. Those public investments are instrumental to private market growth.

I’m proud of my accomplishments and of my grandparents’ decision to immigrate to America. My success, however, is the result of many factors, and remaining conscious of and grateful for those contributions seems the decent thing to do. Also, how can I not support the next generation of working-class kids who dream of moving into America’s middle and upper class?

Let us have a real debate about the costs and benefits of government spending programs. The attitude that smugly denigrates the public sphere while applauding the private one is misguided.

          Urinary and Dietary Analysis of 18,470 Bangladeshis Reveal a Correlation of Rice Consumption with Arsenic Exposure and Toxicity   
Background We utilized data from the Health Effects of Arsenic Longitudinal Study (HEALS) in Araihazar, Bangladesh, to evaluate the association of steamed rice consumption with urinary total arsenic concentration and arsenical skin lesions in the overall study cohort (N=18,470) and in a subset with available urinary arsenic metabolite data (N=4,517). Methods General linear models with standardized beta coefficients were used to estimate associations between steamed rice consumption and urinary total arsenic concentration and urinary arsenic metabolites. Logistic regression models were used to estimate prevalence odds ratios (ORs) and their 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for the associations between rice intake and prevalent skin lesions at baseline. Discrete time hazard models were used to estimate discrete time (HRs) ratios and their 95% CIs for the associations between rice intake and incident skin lesions. Results Steamed rice consumption was positively associated with creatinine-adjusted urinary total arsenic (β=0.041, 95% CI: 0.032-0.051) and urinary total arsenic with statistical adjustment for creatinine in the model (β=0.043, 95% CI: 0.032-0.053). Additionally, we observed a significant trend in skin lesion prevalence (P-trend=0.007) and a moderate trend in skin lesion incidence (P-trend=0.07) associated with increased intake of steamed rice. Conclusions This study suggests that rice intake may be a source of arsenic exposure beyond drinking water.

          Burden of Total and Cause-Specific Mortality Related to Tobacco Smoking among Adults Aged ≥45 Years in Asia: A Pooled Analysis of 21 Cohorts   
Background: Tobacco smoking is a major risk factor for many diseases. We sought to quantify the burden of tobacco-smoking-related deaths in Asia, in parts of which men's smoking prevalence is among the world's highest. Methods and Findings: We performed pooled analyses of data from 1,049,929 participants in 21 cohorts in Asia to quantify the risks of total and cause-specific mortality associated with tobacco smoking using adjusted hazard ratios and their 95% confidence intervals. We then estimated smoking-related deaths among adults aged ≥45 y in 2004 in Bangladesh, India, mainland China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan—accounting for ∼71% of Asia's total population. An approximately 1.44-fold (95% CI = 1.37–1.51) and 1.48-fold (1.38–1.58) elevated risk of death from any cause was found in male and female ever-smokers, respectively. In 2004, active tobacco smoking accounted for approximately 15.8% (95% CI = 14.3%–17.2%) and 3.3% (2.6%–4.0%) of deaths, respectively, in men and women aged ≥45 y in the seven countries/regions combined, with a total number of estimated deaths of ∼1,575,500 (95% CI = 1,398,000–1,744,700). Among men, approximately 11.4%, 30.5%, and 19.8% of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and respiratory diseases, respectively, were attributable to tobacco smoking. Corresponding proportions for East Asian women were 3.7%, 4.6%, and 1.7%, respectively. The strongest association with tobacco smoking was found for lung cancer: a 3- to 4-fold elevated risk, accounting for 60.5% and 16.7% of lung cancer deaths, respectively, in Asian men and East Asian women aged ≥45 y. Conclusions: Tobacco smoking is associated with a substantially elevated risk of mortality, accounting for approximately 2 million deaths in adults aged ≥45 y throughout Asia in 2004. It is likely that smoking-related deaths in Asia will continue to rise over the next few decades if no effective smoking control programs are implemented.
          Genome-Wide Association Studies and Heritability Estimates of Body Mass Index Related Phenotypes in Bangladeshi Adults   
Many health outcomes are influenced by a person's body mass index, as well as by the trajectory of body mass index through a lifetime. Although previous research has established that body mass index related traits are influenced by genetics, the relationship between these traits and genetics has not been well characterized in people of South Asian ancestry. To begin to characterize this relationship, we analyzed the association between common genetic variation and five phenotypes related to body mass index in a population-based sample of 5,354 Bangladeshi adults. We discovered a significant association between SNV rs347313 (intron of NOS1AP) and change in body mass index in women over two years. In a linear mixed-model, the G allele was associated with an increase of 0.25 kg/m2 in body mass index over two years (p-value of 2.3·10−8). We also estimated the heritability of these phenotypes from our genotype data. We found significant estimates of heritability for all of the body mass index-related phenotypes. Our study evaluated the genetic determinants of body mass index related phenotypes for the first time in South Asians. The results suggest that these phenotypes are heritable and some of this heritability is driven by variation that differs from those previously reported. We also provide evidence that the genetic etiology of body mass index related traits may differ by ancestry, sex, and environment, and consequently that these factors should be considered when assessing the genetic determinants of the risk of body mass index-related disease.
          Creatinine, Arsenic Metabolism, and Renal Function in an Arsenic-Exposed Population in Bangladesh   
Kidney disease is emerging as an arsenic (As)-linked disease outcome, however further evidence of this association is warranted. Our first objective for this paper was to examine the potential renal toxicity of As exposure in Bangladesh. Our second objective relates to examining whether the previously reported positive association between urinary creatinine (uCrn) and As methylation may be explained by renal function. We had hypothesized that these associations relate to supply and demand for s-adenosylmethionine, the methyl donor for both creatine synthesis and As methylation. Alternatively, renal function could influence both As and creatinine excretion, or the As metabolites may influence renal function, which in turn influences uCrn. We conducted a cross-sectional study (N = 478) of adults, composed of a sample recruited in 2001 and a sample recruited in 2003. We assessed renal function using plasma cystatin C, and calculated the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Consistent with renal toxicity of As, log-uAs had a marginal inverse association with eGFR in the 2003 sample (b = −5.6, p = 0.07), however this association was not significant in the 2001 sample (b = −1.9, p = 0.24). Adjustment for eGFR did not alter the associations between uCrn and the %uAs metabolites, indicating that GFR does not explain these associations. Increased eGFR was associated with increased odds of having %uInAs >12.2% (2001: OR = 1.01, 95%CI (1.00,1.03); 2003: OR = 1.04, 95%CI (1.01,1.07)). In the 2003 sample only, there was a negative association between eGFR and %uDMA (b = −0.08, p = 0.02). These results may indicate differential effects of renal function on excretion of InAs and DMA. Alternatively, a certain methylation pattern, involving decreased %InAs and increased %DMA, may reduce renal function. Given that these studies were cross-sectional, we cannot distinguish between these two possibilities. Discrepancies between the samples may be due to the higher As exposure, poorer nutrition, and lower As methylation capacity in the 2003 sample.

          The Evolving Demographic and Health Transition in Four Low- and Middle-Income Countries: Evidence from Four Sites in the INDEPTH Network of Longitudinal Health and Demographic Surveillance Systems   
This paper contributes evidence documenting the continued decline in all-cause mortality and changes in the cause of death distribution over time in four developing country populations in Africa and Asia. We present levels and trends in age-specific mortality (all-cause and cause-specific) from four demographic surveillance sites: Agincourt (South Africa), Navrongo (Ghana) in Africa; Filabavi (Vietnam), Matlab (Bangladesh) in Asia. We model mortality using discrete time event history analysis. This study illustrates how data from INDEPTH Network centers can provide a comparative, longitudinal examination of mortality patterns and the epidemiological transition. Health care systems need to be reconfigured to deal simultaneously with continuing challenges of communicable disease and increasing incidence of non-communicable diseases that require long-term care. In populations with endemic HIV, long-term care of HIV patients on ART will add to the chronic care needs of the community.

The flapper’s skirt was short and streamline, which gave girls an excuse to portion with layers of undergarments. Girls wore this style in the late 1300’s and guys adapted the appear in the 1400’s. Fashion periods are generally distinguished by the female silhouette which presented a boyish figure with flattened breasts and loose clothes for most of the decade. But, it tends to make me appreciate clothing and how it is made (and sometimes not created so effectively).

Some sources state that girls and girls wore no shirt at all in the warmer months, but I can’t confim that with native sources.

Even so, these accessories have been typically worn only when going out-otherwise, most females wore their hair in a plain bun placed close to the nape of the neck.

JUDY WOODRUFF: We will have more on extreme weather events in the context of climate change right after the news summary.

U.S. Airways and American Airlines have cleared the last major hurdle to merging into a single carrier. The Justice Department approved the deal today. It calls for the two airlines to eliminate 56 flights a day out of Washington and New York. They will also transfer some gates at other major airports to low-cost carriers. The moves are meant to prevent the merger from stifling competition.

Heart experts are calling for twice as many Americans to consider taking statin drugs that cut cholesterol. The American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology issued new guidelines today on heart attacks and strokes. Using a new formula, some 33 million Americans, one-third of all adults, meet the threshold to consider taking a statin.

President Obama faced new pressure today over cancellations of millions of health insurance policies. Former President Bill Clinton told the website OZY.com that Mr. Obama needs to keep his promise not to let that happen.

FORMER PRESIDENT  BILL CLINTON: I personally believe, even if it takes a change in the law, that the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got.

JUDY WOODRUFF: Mr. Obama has apologized for the problem, but has not said he’s willing to amend the law. As for the Clinton comments, White House spokesman Jay Carney had this response.

JAY CARNEY, White House Press Secretary: I think it’s important to note that President Clinton in that interview also said — and I quote — “The big lesson is that we are better off with this law than without it.”

The president, as you know, has pledged to ask his team, tasked his team to look at potential actions that could be taken to address this problem, because his focus is on making sure that people get quality and affordable health insurance.

JUDY WOODRUFF: The number two Democrat in the U.S. House, Maryland Congressman Steny Hoyer, also joined the call today to let people keep their existing policies.

Meanwhile, The New York Times reported that major insurance companies are asking to sign people up directly and bypass the troubled healthcare.gov Web site.

Hawaii is about to become the 16th state to legalize gay marriage. The state Senate moved today to give final approval to same-sex unions. The governor indicated he would sign the bill into law. A similar measure won approval last week in the Illinois legislature.

The U.N. Human Rights Council added new members today, and human rights activists were not happy about the results. China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and Cuba all won seats, despite protests that they routinely abuse human rights and restrict basic freedoms. The U.N. General Assembly voted on the new members.

An international committee of architects has confirmed it: One World Trade Center in New York will be the tallest building in the U.S. when it’s completed next year. It’s being built at the site of the 9/11 attacks and will top out at 1,776 feet. But a dispute arose over the needle on top of the building and whether it’s to be counted toward that height. The announcement came today in Chicago.

ANTONY WOOD, Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat: In the end, we reached a consensus. It was close to unanimous. It wasn’t 100 percent unanimous, but it was close to unanimous. And so the debate — and this was a five-hour meeting. So the debate was — was pretty heated.

JUDY WOODRUFF: Chicago’s Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, had been the country’s tallest building at 1,451 feet.

Violence erupted in two developing countries today as garment workers pressed for better pay and working conditions. In Cambodia, one woman was shot dead when riot police used tear gas and water cannon along with live ammunition. Demonstrators threw rocks and set some cars on fire. In Bangladesh, thousands of protesters battled police in two industrial towns, leaving dozens of people injured. More than 200 factories were closed.

In China, leaders of the ruling Communist Party vowed to let markets play a decisive role in allocating resources. The policy statement was announced at the end of a four-day summit in Beijing. The gathering focused on reforms to drive economic growth for the next decade. The leaders stopped short of ordering dramatic reforms that would end the dominance of state-controlled industries.

President Obama nominated a top Treasury Department official, Timothy Massad, to run the Commodity Futures Trading Commission today. The CFTC regulates the futures and options market, but it’s one of the smallest and most thinly funded U.S. agencies. The president urged Congress today to fully fund the commission.

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average lost 32 points today to close at 15,750. The Nasdaq rose a fraction to close just short of 3,920.

          Uzbekistan - Human Right Watch: la Banca mondiale finanzia progetti legati al lavoro forzato e minorile   
Riforma.it
La denuncia lanciata da Human Right Watch che ieri ha pubblicato un rapporto nel quale si registrano sistematiche violazioni soprattutto nel settore del cotone.


Le immagini di uomini, donne, bambini africani costretti dai negrieri al lavoro forzato nelle piantagioni di cotone americane sembravano ormai archiviate in un triste e lontano passato. 

Invece nel XXI secolo in Uzbekistan, stato dell’Asia centrale, un numero enorme di persone, a volte bambini fino ai 10/11 anni, sono costretti a lavorare lunghe ore nei campi di cotone in condizioni difficili. Ancor più grave è che tale lavoro forzato e minorile riceva ingenti risorse dalla Banca Mondiale: circa mezzo miliardo di dollari che va a finanziare progetti soprattutto nel settore dell’agricoltura.

È la denuncia lanciata da Human Rights Watch (Hrw) e dal Forum per i diritti umani uzbeco-tedeschi in un rapporto presentato ufficialmente ieri, intitolato «Non possiamo rifiutarci di raccogliere il cotone: il lavoro forzato e minorile legato agli investimenti del Gruppo della Banca Mondiale in Uzbekistan».

Il rapporto di 115 pagine evidenzia nel dettaglio come il governo uzbeko abbia costretto studenti, insegnanti, operatori sanitari, dipendenti del settore privato, e talvolta anche bambini, a raccogliere il cotone nel 2015 e nel 2016, oltre a piantarlo nella primavera del 2016. Il governo avrebbe anche minacciato di dar fuoco alle persone, di interrompere i pagamenti sociali e sospendere o espellere gli studenti qualora si fossero rifiutati di lavorare nei campi di cotone.

«La Banca Mondiale dà copertura all’Uzbekistan per mantenere un sistema di lavoro abusivo nell’industria del cotone», ha dichiarato Umida Niyazova, direttrice del Forum uzbeco-tedesco per i diritti umani. «La Banca Mondiale deve chiarire al governo uzbeco e ai potenziali investitori che non vuole far parte di un sistema che dipende dal lavoro minorile e dal lavoro forzato, sospendendo i finanziamenti fino a quando questi problemi non saranno risolti».

Il rapporto si basa su 257 interviste dettagliate e circa 700 brevi conversazioni con le vittime di lavoro forzato e minorile, agricoltori e attori chiave del sistema del lavoro forzato; su alcuni documenti governativi e su dichiarazioni di funzionari governativi. A partire da queste fonti e documenti, Human Rights Watch e il Forum uzbeco-tedesco sostengono che è altamente probabile che i progetti agricoli e irrigui sostenuti dalla Banca Mondiale, così come gli investimenti nel campo dell’istruzione, siano legati al lavoro forzato e, in alcuni casi, a quello minorile.

L’Uzbekistan è il quinto produttore di cotone più grande al mondo. Esporta circa il 60% del suo cotone grezzo verso la Cina, il Bangladesh, la Turchia e l’Iran. L’industria uzbeca del cotone genera più di 1 miliardo di dollari in fatturato annuo, ovvero circa un quarto del prodotto interno lordo del paese. I ricavi della produzione del cotone vanno in un conto «opaco» extra ministeriale delle Finanze che non è aperto al controllo pubblico ma gestito da funzionari governativi di alto livello.

Gruppi indipendenti, tra cui il Forum uzbeko-tedesco, hanno presentato le prove del lavoro forzato e minorile alla Banca mondiale durante e dopo il raccolto autunnale 2015, nonché prove sulle violenze, intimidazioni, detenzioni arbitrarie subite da attivisti indipendenti e giornalisti impegnati in attività di monitoraggio dei diritti umani e dei diritti del lavoro nel 2015 e nel 2016.

Invece di sospendere il prestito al governo uzbeco, in linea con gli accordi del 2014, la Banca mondiale ha aumentato i propri investimenti nell’industria agricola dell’Uzbekistan attraverso il suo settore di prestito privato, la IFC (International Finance Corporation).

Finora un totale di 274 aziende si sono impegnate a non acquistare cotone dall’Uzbekistan a causa dell’utilizzo del lavoro forzato e minorile nel settore, ma c’è ancora molta strada da fare.

Human Rights Watch e il Forum uzbeko-tedesco chiedono alla Banca Mondiale e all’IFC di sospendere il finanziamento nei settori dell’agricoltura e dell’irrigazione in Uzbekistan finché non sia provata l’assenza di utilizzo di lavoro forzato e minorile; di adottare tutte le misure necessarie per prevenire le repressioni contro i difensori dei diritti umani; infine, di rispondere rapidamente qualora si dovessero verificare degli abusi.

«La missione della Banca Mondiale è combattere la povertà, ma le persone che vivono in condizioni di povertà sono le più esposte al lavoro forzato e minorile in Uzbekistan», ha dichiarato Jessica Evans, ricercatrice senior dei diritti umani per Human Rights Watch e coautrice del rapporto. «La Banca Mondiale dovrebbe smettere di finanziare progetti che rafforzano il sistema di lavoro forzato del Paese, favorendo invece le iniziative che rispondono alle esigenze sociali ed economiche delle persone che vivono in povertà».

          Fashion's biggest brands commit to new Bangladesh Accord   

To guarantee that efforts are sustained beyond May 2018, the time when the five-year duration of the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety will run out, a new Bangladesh Accord has been announced yesterday at the OECD Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct in Paris.

“The renewal of the Bangladesh Accord ensures the continuation of the most effective program to ensure the safety of factory buildings in the contemporary era of global garment production. The Accord has generated more than 100,000 documented safety improvements in more than 1,500 apparel factories, employing more than 2.5 million garment workers,” commented Ineke Zeldenrust of the Clean Clothes Campaign.

Bangladesh Accord extended by three years

The new agreement will ensure that more than 1,000 garment factories in Bangladesh will have safe working conditions and has been signed so far by 14 of the following leading brands: Kmart Australia, Target Australia, Primark, H&M, Inditex (Zara), C&A, Otto, KiK, Aldi South, Aldi North, Lidl, Tchibo, LC Waikiki and Helly Hansen. A further eight brands - Esprit, Hüren, Bestseller, Wibra, Schmidt Group, N Brown Group, PVH and Specialty Fashion Group Australia - have committed to signing.

“Brands' renewed commitment to factory safety in Bangladesh is a vote of confidence in the Accord,” stated IndustriALL general secretary Valter Sanches. “We are urging the brands and retailers sourcing from Bangladesh to sign the new agreement. We believe that every genuinely responsible company will do so,” added Judy Gearhart, executive director of the International Labor Rights Forum.

“The Accord is the antidote to the voluntary industry auditing schemes that failed miserably to protect workers in the years leading up to the catastrophic Rana Plaza collapse,” summed up Scott Nova, executive director of the Worker Rights Consortium. “The Accord model replaces voluntary promises with enforceable commitments, ensures severe economic consequences for suppliers that refuse to operate safely, and requires brands to make sure their suppliers can afford needed renovations. The renewal of the Accord is a testament to the effectiveness of this model.”

Like the old one, the new Accord is also supported by global unions IndustriALL Global Union and UNI Global Union. Four non-governmental organizations, namely the Clean Clothes Campaign, the Worker Rights Consortium, the International Labor Rights Forum and the Maquila Solidarity Network, will be witness signatories.

“Over the past four years, unions and worker safety organizations have worked together with global brands within the Accord to find a solution to the seemingly intractable problem of dangerous factories in Bangladesh. Many said that change was not possible. We’ve proven them wrong. Our aim is to create a global economy which respects the lives and dignity of all workers, and the Accord is a big step along that path. The 2018 Accord will continue the forward motion,” commented Christy Hoffman, deputy general secretary of UNI Global Union.

Bangladesh Accord extension aims for more brands and more options

Wile the new agreement extends independent, expert building safety inspections for three more years for all covered factories, ensuring that safety improvements achieved under the first Accord will be maintained and that new problems in any factory will be addressed, it will also go beyond it as Bangladesh's garment industry has grown considerably.

Thus, the new agreement will put greater emphasis on the right of workers to organise and join a union, recognising worker empowerment is fundamental to assuring workplace safety. However, it also remains one of the challenges as labour protests in December 2016 have shown when the government cracked down on trade unions and workers were detained.

The new agreement will also include enhanced protections for workers whose factories have been closed or relocated. It also presents the possibility to expand the Accord to sectors other than the readymade garment industry, for example factories that make related products like home textiles and footwear, or thread and cloth.

“I am glad that we have reached an agreement to extend the Accord. The IndustriALL Bangladesh Council of trade unions has zero tolerance of unsafe workplaces that threaten workers’ lives. The Accord is extremely important to workers who now know about the safety issues in their factory and can do something about them,” said Amirul Amin from the National Garment Workers Federation, an IndustriALL Bangladeshi affiliate.

Under the first Accord, engineers carried out fire, electrical, and structural safety inspections at more than 1,800 factories, identifying 118,500 hazards. Seventy-nine per cent of workplace dangers identified in the Accord’s original round of inspections have been remediated.

The Rana Plaza collapse in April 2013 claimed the lives of more than 1,100 workers, injuring 2,500 more. Six weeks later, unions, non-governmental organizations and brands announced the first Bangladesh Accord. Currently, the Accord covers more than 2.5 million workers. The new Accord goes into effect after the 2013 Accord expires in May 2018.

          Cinema that reflects life   

If we examine Bangladeshi films produced thus far since 1971 we would see that most of them are not under the rubric of 'revolutionary cinema' by consciously counteracting the conventions of traditional entertainment films. A film is regarded as revolutionary when it makes a radical departure from conventional films both in terms of content and form.

Allahu Akbar!!


ADAB MENDENGAR AZAN


Kematian itu pasti menjelma. Hanya masa Dan waktunya
Yang tidak Kita ketahui.Coba Kita amati.. Mengapa
Kebanyakan orang yg nazak, hampir ajal tidak dapat
Berkata apa-apa.. Lidahnya kelu, keras Dan hanya mimik
Mukanya yang menahan kesakitan ' sakaratulmaut' .
Diriwayatkan sebuah hadis yg bermaksud: 'Hendaklah
Kamu mendiamkan diri ketika azan, ji ka tidak Allah
Akan kelukan lidahnya ketika maut menghampirinya. '
Ini jelas menunjukkan, Kita disarankan agar mendiamkan
Diri, jangan berkata apa-apa pun sewaktu azan
Berkumandang . Sebagai orang beragama Islam Kita wa ji b
Menghormati azan Banyak fadhilatnya . Jika lagu
Kebangsaan Kita diajar agar berdiri tegak Dan diamkan Diri.
Mengapa ketika azan Kita tidak boleh mendiamkan diri?
Lantas siapa yang berbicara ketika azan, Allah
Akan kelukan lidahnya ketika nazak . Kita takut dengan
Kelunya lidah Kita semasa ajal hampir tiba maka Kita
Tidak dapat mengucap kalimah 'Lailahaillallah. .' yang
Mana sesiapa yang dapat mengucapkan kalimah ini ketika
Nyawanya akan dicabut Allah dgn izinNya menjan ji kan
Syurga untuk mereka. Dari itu marilah kita sama-sama
menghormati azan dan mohon kepada Allah supaya lidah
ini tidak kelu semasa nyawa kita sedang dicabut.
'Ya Allah! Anugerahkanlah kematian kami dengan kematian
yang baik lagi mulia, lancarkan lidah kami mengucap kalimah 'Lailahaillallah. .'
semasa sakaratul maut menghampiri kami... Amin... amin.. amin Yarobbala'lamin. .'

Sesuatu yang tak pernah terjangkau di akal fikiran ku ini.
Subhanallah. ..

Ketahuilah bahawa pada setiap waktu, ribuan bilal di merata dunia akan mengalunkan azan,

mengakui 'Bahawa Allah Saja Yang Patut Disembah,
dan Nabi Muhammad Adalah Rasul Allah.'Diawali dengan Indonesia yang terletak dibahagian timur dengan ratusan kepulauan-nya dan jumlah
penduduknya sebanyak 180 juta.

Sebaik masuk waktu Subuh, Azan mulai berkumandang dari kawasan ini dengan ribuan Bilal yang akan melaungkan
Ke-Agungan Allah S..W.T Dan Nabi Muhammad S.A.W.

Proses ini akan bergerak kearah barat kepulauan Indonesia .

Perbedaan waktu antara timur dan barat Indonesia adalah 1-1/2 jam.Belum alunan
Azan merata Indonesia selesai, dimulai pula di Malaysia .

Berikutnya di-Burma dan dalam waktu satu jam selepas Azan dialunkan di-Jakarta,
tiba giliran Dacca di Bangladesh.

Berikutnya alunanannya akan kedengaran di Calcutta dan terus ke Srinagar dibarat India .

Perbedaan waktu dikota-kota Pakistan adalah 40 menit jadi dalam jangka waktu ini,

Azan akan berkumandang diseluruh Pakistan.Belum berakhir
di-Pakistan,

Azan akan bermula pula di Afghanistan dan Muscat.Perbedaan waktu antara Muscat dan Baghdad adalah satu jam.
Dalam jangka waktu
ini, Azan akan berterusan dilaungkan di UAE, Makkah, Madinah, Yaman , Kuwait dan Iraq .

Proses ini berterusan setiap detik sehingga ke pantai timur Atlantik.

Jarak masa Azan mula dialunkankan di Indonesia sehingga ke pantai timur Atlantik
adalah 9-1/2 jam.Belumpun Azan Subuh berkumandang di pantai Timur Atlantik, Azan Zuhur kini sudah mula dilaungkan di Indonesia.

Ini berterusan
bagi setiap waktu sembahyang, tidak putus-putus.

Subhanallah, begitu hebat dan agungnya Islam!

Kalaulah setiap kawasan boleh memasang pengeras suara, akan bergetar satu dunia dengan alunan Azan yang tidak putus-putus.

Allahu Akhbar!

Kita boleh mengirimkan ribuan 'jokes' dan ' surat berantai' melalui

e-mail tetapi bila mengirimkan yang berkaitan dengan ibadah seringkali
berfikir 2 atau 3 kali......FIKIRKAN LAH, tepuk dadamu tanya imanmu.

A recent study found lead in over 50% of big brands lipsticks. Is that scary or what? So if you're looking to find the best anti wrinkle cream the first question you need to ask yourself is which anti wrinkle creams are safe to use? Because many aren't. But there are excellent, and safe, anti wrinkle creams and other complete skin care ranges that work extremely well and don't contain any nasty ingredients. One company that makes a range of skin care products is so confident of their products that they actually offer a money back guarantee. Including for opened bottles of product. And their products will show visible results within a month. The products are safe to use and are made up of natural products like extracts from seaweed, the wool of sheep, the butter from the nuts of trees and the oils from various nuts and fruits. And surprisingly they actually work better than all those big brands that may well http://www.fitnessbites.org/body-blast-cleanse
          Awas! Imigresen Gempur Pati    


PUTRAJAYA: Jabatan Imigresen akan melaksanakan operasi gempur besar-besaran di seluruh negara bermula tengah malam ini bagi mengesan pendatang tanpa asing (Pati) selaras dengan tamatnya tempoh permohonan kad sementara atau Enforcement Card (E-Kad), Jumaat.

Ketua Pengarahnya,Datuk Seri Mustafar Ali berkata pihaknya ternyata kecewa dengan sikap berlengah majikan yang tidak membuat pendaftaran dengan lebih awal walaupun program tersebut telah dilancarkan sejak 15 Februari lalu.

Beliau berkata setakat jam 8 pagi ini,hanya 23 peratus iaitu 155,680 Pati melibatkan 26,957 majlikan telah membuat permohonandan sebanyak 140,746 E-Kad telah dikeluarkan, jumlah yang jauh lebih rendah daripada sasaran asal 600,000 Pati.

Menurutnya, warga Bangladesh adalah warganegara Pati yang tertinggi mendaftar E-Kad diikuti Indonesia, Myanmar dan Nepal.

"Saya sudah tegaskan banyak kali bahawa tarikh akhir pendaftaran adalah pada 12 tengah malam ini, dan iatidak akan di sambung," katanya pada sidang media, di sini, Jumaat.

Mustafar berkata selepas tempoh tersebut selain tangkapan ke atas Pati, majikan juga akan dikenakan tindakan undang-undang atas kesalahan melindungi serta menggaji Pati mengikut Seksyen 56(1) dan Seksyen 55B di bawah Akta Imigresen 1959/1963 termasuk menggaji warga asing yang menyalahgunakan pas pelajar mereka.

Tinjauan media di Ibu Pejabat Jabatan Imigresendi sinihariini mendapatiia masih lagi sesak sejak semalam dengan kehadiran majikan dan Pati memilih untuk tampil mendaftar E-Kad pada saat-saat akhir.

Katanya, walaupun permohonan ditutup pada jam 12 tengah malam ini, tetapi pegawai terpaksa bekerja sehingga 7 pagi esok bagi memproseske semua dokumen yang sedia ada.

Malah, katanya, atas kapasiti yang terbatas, permohonan majikan yang datang ke pejabat Imigresen selepas 11.30 pagi tadi terpaksa diketepikan terlebih dahulu bagi pihaknya memproses kesemua permohonan yang sedia ada.

Mustafar turut memaklumkan pihaknya menahan beberapa orang, yang didakwa sebagai ejen,yang mengambil kesempatan dengan mengeluarkan E-Kadpalsu.

Katanya, permohonan E-Kad perlu diuruskan sendiri oleh majikan tanpa melibatkan orang tengah.-- Bernama

          Event Update For 2017-06-29   




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.



A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2017-06-29 - Two odor events occur, 'strange odor' and 'smell of gas', in Iron Mountain (Michigan):
http://www.ironmountaindailynews.com/news/local-news/2017/06/firefighters-investigate-odor-calls/

Quote: "Iron Mountain firefighters investigated two odor complaints Wednesday. At 4:26 p.m., they went to Shirt Tails at 408 S. Stephenson Ave. for a report of a 'strange' odor. Firefighters checked the building with a detector but didn’t find any problems. They returned to the station at 4:45 p.m. At 8:04 p.m., they went to Hardee’s at 315 N. Stephenson Ave. for a report of a natural gas odor. Employees evacuated the building, and firefighters used a detector to check for gas. Although the detector indicated no natural gas, the smell of gas was present, firefighters said."

Note: Their detector was for detecting natural gas, and none was detected, but the 'smell of gas' was nevertheless present. People are confusing the smell of hydrogen sulfide with the smell of mercaptan, which is added to natural gas to give it an odor. Natural gas detectors won't detect hydrogen sulfide...

          3 women detained during raid on militant den in Bangladesh   

Dhaka, July 1 (IANS) Police in Bangladesh on Saturday detained three women militants and seized weapons, ammunition and explosives, including suicide vests, during a raid on a suspected Neo JMB hideout in Bheramara in Kushtia district, a media report said.

Superintendent of Police, Kushtia, S.M. Mehedi Hossain, said the house near the Upazila town's Taltola Mosque was surrounded around 12 a.m. on Saturday based on information from the Counter Terrorism Unit, bdnews24.com reported.

Hossain said a woman wearing a suicide vest attempted to attack police during the operation that began around 3 a.m.

"She was stopped before it exploded. Two other women were detained later," he added.

The women have been identified as Tithi, the wife of neo-JMB leader Ayub Bachchu aka Shojib; Sumaiya, the wife of neo-JMB second-in-command Annaman Ali, and Toli Begum, the wife of Rajikul aka Rashed aka Talha of Bheramara's Daulatpur village, the report said.

Police recovered two suicide vests, a pistol, a magazine and some gunpowder during the raid on the first anniversary of the Gulshan Holey Artisan attack.

The neighbouring homes have been evacuated as police fear there may be more explosives inside the house.

According to an account in the Daily Star, soon after cordoning off the house, police asked the suspected militants to surrender.

After about five hours of the stand-off, Sumaiya Khatun wearing a suicide vest walked towards the police personnel along with her two sons.

Police foiled her attempt to blast the suicide vest and arrested her, SP Mehedi said.

The house was sealed off and a bomb disposal unit of CTTC in Dhaka was summoned.

The suspected militants rented the house from one Nasima Khatun around two months back, police said.

Police are in search of Nasima Khatun and her family members, the official said.

          Search for 5 terrorists halts Dhaka cafe attack investigation   

Dhaka, July 1 (IANS) The terror siege of Holey Artisan bakery here ended with the killing of five gunmen, but the police say they need to catch five more terrorists before the investigation is complete.

"We are still looking for five suspects whose names came up in our investigation. The investigation can be completed if we manage to catch two or three among them," said head of Dhaka Metropolitan Police's counter-terror unit Monirul Islam on Friday.

Of the five, capturing Soheil Mahfuz, Rashedul Islam aka 'Rash' and Basharuzzaman aka 'Chocolate' was vital. "Finding them may end our investigation," bdnews24 quoted Monirul as saying.

A year has passed since Islamist militants launched a foreigner-targeted attack in Dhaka's diplomatic district, killing 20 including 17 foreign nationals.

The five killers, who shouted 'Allahu Akbar' and took religious tests to seek out foreigners, were shot dead by commandos the next morning, along with a bakery chef who remains a suspect.

"Never before have so many foreigners died together in Bangladesh. This attack was important for us the way the fall of the Twin Towers was important to the US," said Monirul.

"The operations we conducted in the last one year have eliminated eight individuals who were involved in the planning of the attack. We'd have charged them had they been alive," said the counter-terror chief.

Of the four men in prison, three have confessed to being involved, he said.

Indrykket 29. juni

          2013 David Brooks vs 2011 David Brooks   
David Brooks' column today opens:
Dylan Matthews had a fascinating piece about a young man named Jason Trigg in The Washington Post on Sunday. Trigg is a 25-year-old computer science graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who has hit upon what he thinks is the way he can do maximum good for the world. He goes to work each day at a high-frequency trading hedge fund. But, instead of spending his ample salary, he lives the life of a graduate student and gives a large chunk of his money away.

Trigg has seized upon the statistic that a $2,500 donation can prevent one death from malaria, and he figures that, over the course of a lucrative Wall Street career, he can save many lives. He was motivated to think this way by the utilitarian philosopher Peter Singer.

From the article, Trigg seems like an earnest, morally serious man, who, if he lives out his plan, could indeed help save many lives. But if you are thinking of following his example, I would really urge caution.
Now, as a matter of fact, I have no beef with that. If you want to follow Trigg's path, you should proceed with caution. As Brooks points out, it's probably hard to go through with the decision to donate half your income, and it probably does become harder over time, as you become acculturated. (On the other hand, none of the people Matthews profiled are actually hardcore trader types - they're quants or startup folks or analysts, which probably makes sense both dispositionally and strategically [since the folks involved are aware of the acculturation concern and don't want to burn out].)

Brooks has two other arguments against Trigg's decision. I was going to paraphrase but it's probably better to let him use his own words:
Second, I would be wary of inverting the natural order of affections. If you see the world on a strictly intellectual level, then a child in Pakistan or Zambia is just as valuable as your own child. But not many people actually think this way. Not many people value abstract life perceived as a statistic as much as the actual child being fed, hugged, nurtured and played with.

If you choose a profession that doesn’t arouse your everyday passion for the sake of serving instead some abstract faraway good, you might end up as a person who values the far over the near. You might become one of those people who loves humanity in general but not the particular humans immediately around. You might end up enlarging the faculties we use to perceive the far — rationality — and eclipsing the faculties we use to interact with those closest around — affection, the capacity for vulnerability and dependence. Instead of seeing yourself as one person deeply embedded in a particular community, you may end up coolly looking across humanity as a detached god.
Nothing in Matthews' article entails these conclusions, and I don't see any reason to believe that the people profiled in the article have in any way given up on attaching particular personal weight to the needs and desires of their loved ones. Brooks is mistaken to claim that it's rationality that drives that widening circle of care, rather than empathy, better understood. Larissa Macfarquhar has written movingly about utilitarian philosophers bursting into tears in her presence during abstract discussions of suffering. In one of these stories, she hits the nail on the head:
It turned out that what had made him cry was the idea of suffering. We had been talking about suffering in the abstract. I found that very striking. Now, I don’t think any professional philosopher is going to make this mistake, but nonprofessionals [**cough cough Brooks**] might think that utilitarianism, for instance (Parfit is a utilitarian), or certain other philosophical ways of think about morality, are quite unemotional, quite calculating, quite cold; and so because as I am writing mostly for nonphilosophers, it seemed like a good corrective to know that for someone like Parfit these issues are extremely emotional, even in the abstract.
So I think Brooks is substantially wrong about how the people who actually live this lifestyle approach it: they do feel the emotion of it, just for a far larger group of people than he's able to.

But even if Brooks is right so far, he hasn't yet really explained what's supposed to be so bad about taking this supposedly cold, rational approach.

That's the third argument:
Third, and most important, I would worry about turning yourself into a means rather than an end. If you go to Wall Street mostly to make money for charity, you may turn yourself into a machine for the redistribution of wealth. You may turn yourself into a fiscal policy.

But a human life is not just a means to produce outcomes, it is an end in itself. When we evaluate our friends, we don’t just measure the consequences of their lives. We measure who they intrinsically are. We don’t merely want to know if they have done good. We want to know if they are good.

That’s why when most people pick a vocation, they don’t only want one that will be externally useful. They want one that they will enjoy, and that will make them a better person. They want to find that place, as the novelist Frederick Buechner put it, “where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”

If you are smart, hard-working, careful and lucky you might even be able to find a job that is both productive and internally ennobling. Taking a job just to make money, on the other hand, is probably going to be corrosive, even if you use the money for charity rather than sports cars....

Making yourself is different than producing a product or an external outcome, requiring different logic and different means. I’d think you would be more likely to cultivate a deep soul if you put yourself in the middle of the things that engaged you most seriously. If your profoundest interest is dying children in Africa or Bangladesh, it’s probably best to go to Africa or Bangladesh, not to Wall Street.
The most jarring thing for me about this argument was how it contrasted with a previous column of Brooks' that I remembered quite well. Almost exactly two years ago, as I was getting ready to graduate from college, Brooks wrote an outstanding column on this very issue:
If you sample some of the commencement addresses being broadcast on C-Span these days, you see that many graduates are told to: Follow your passion, chart your own course, march to the beat of your own drummer, follow your dreams and find yourself. This is the litany of expressive individualism, which is still the dominant note in American culture.

But, of course, this mantra misleads on nearly every front....

Most successful young people don’t look inside and then plan a life. They look outside and find a problem, which summons their life. A relative suffers from Alzheimer’s and a young woman feels called to help cure that disease. A young man works under a miserable boss and must develop management skills so his department can function. Another young woman finds herself confronted by an opportunity she never thought of in a job category she never imagined. This wasn’t in her plans, but this is where she can make her contribution.

Most people don’t form a self and then lead a life. They are called by a problem, and the self is constructed gradually by their calling.

The graduates are also told to pursue happiness and joy. But, of course, when you read a biography of someone you admire, it’s rarely the things that made them happy that compel your admiration. It’s the things they did to court unhappiness — the things they did that were arduous and miserable, which sometimes cost them friends and aroused hatred. It’s excellence, not happiness, that we admire most.

Finally, graduates are told to be independent-minded and to express their inner spirit. But, of course, doing your job well often means suppressing yourself. As Atul Gawande mentioned during his countercultural address last week at Harvard Medical School, being a good doctor often means being part of a team, following the rules of an institution, going down a regimented checklist.

Today’s grads enter a cultural climate that preaches the self as the center of a life. But, of course, as they age, they’ll discover that the tasks of a life are at the center. Fulfillment is a byproduct of how people engage their tasks, and can’t be pursued directly. Most of us are egotistical and most are self-concerned most of the time, but it’s nonetheless true that life comes to a point only in those moments when the self dissolves into some task. The purpose in life is not to find yourself. It’s to lose yourself.
I think most people, Brooks included, have probably never talked to someone like Trigg or Jeff Kauffman or Julia Wise. When you see their arguments written, without much elaboration, it's all too easy to write them off as rationalist cranks, perhaps lacking the full depth of humanity that you and your loved ones obviously have. But what an insensitive and ungenerous reaction. Talking to them, or hearing Larissa Macfarquhar talk about them, it's clear that they lead exactly the kind of life that Brooks accurately saw fit to praise in his 2011 column: a life of moral seriousness, driven by a genuine altruistic concern for others, as well as all the prosaic obligations to friends, family, and colleagues that structure all of our everyday lives.

Contra 2013 Brooks' straw man, these people have not taken jobs they despise with people they hate in places they don't want to live. They live the generally healthy, happy, comfortable lives of urban young professionals, and to the extent I've discussed it with them, work on relatively interesting problems with extremely talented colleagues. Once they've reached a level of material well-being themselves, they've chosen to try to optimize their contributions to the wellbeing of others rather than to fully, exhaustively, pursue their own self-regarding passions. Their path is not the right one for everyone, and they'll often be the first to tell you that, but it is also a path that altruistic young people in the position to do so should seriously consider.

Even if Brooks were right and the people who Matthews profiled are, horror of horrors, treating themselves as means to the ends of others, what of it? Isn't it much better for the world, and for those who are least well off in it? Why should we concede to 2013 Brooks' demand that we ally ourselves with the privileged potential Wall Street financiers who may forego some modicum of personal flourishing rather than with the many more Against Malaria Foundation beneficiaries who will live far longer and substantially better lives as a result of being protected from malaria? 2011 Brooks saw the wisdom of losing yourself in a cause, and it's sad that the mere specter of money leaves 2013 Brooks so cold.

Child survival revolutions revisited - lessons learned from Bangladesh, Nicaragua, Rwanda and Vietnam.

Acta Paediatr. 2017 Jun;106(6):871-877

Authors: Persson LÅ, Rahman A, Peña R, Perez W, Musafili A, Hoa DP

Abstract
Analysing child mortality may enhance our perspective on global achievements in child survival. We used data from surveillance sites in Bangladesh, Nicaragua and Vietnam and Demographic Health Surveys in Rwanda to explore the development of neonatal and under-five mortality. The mortality curves showed dramatic reductions over time, but child mortality in the four countries peaked during wars and catastrophes and was rapidly reduced by targeted interventions, multisectorial development efforts and community engagement.
CONCLUSION: Lessons learned from these countries may be useful when tackling future challenges, including persistent neonatal deaths, survival inequalities and the consequences of climate change and migration.

          Event Update For 2017-06-29   




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.



A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

http://www.ironmountaindailynews.com/news/local-news/2017/06/firefighters-investigate-odor-calls/

Quote: "Iron Mountain firefighters investigated two odor complaints Wednesday. At 4:26 p.m., they went to Shirt Tails at 408 S. Stephenson Ave. for a report of a 'strange' odor. Firefighters checked the building with a detector but didn’t find any problems. They returned to the station at 4:45 p.m. At 8:04 p.m., they went to Hardee’s at 315 N. Stephenson Ave. for a report of a natural gas odor. Employees evacuated the building, and firefighters used a detector to check for gas. Although the detector indicated no natural gas, the smell of gas was present, firefighters said."

Note: Their detector was for detecting natural gas, and none was detected, but the 'smell of gas' was nevertheless present. People are confusing the smell of hydrogen sulfide with the smell of mercaptan, which is added to natural gas to give it an odor. Natural gas detectors won't detect hydrogen sulfide...

          Steve Smith announces his engagement   
Australian cricket team captain Steve Smith on Thursday announced his engagement with partner Dani Willis through social media.

"Today I got down on one knee and @dani_willis said YES," Smith posted on Instagram.The 28-year old batsman, rated one of the best in the world, was at New York City's Rockefeller Centre rooftop.

After Australia's early exit from the ICC Champions Trophy in England, Smith has been holidaying. He visited Monaco, London and New York, where the right-hander has been fine-tuning his baseball skills, Cricket Australia reported.

Australia play Bangladesh in Tests in August-September.

Then there is a limited-overs tour of India, the Ashes at home, and more limited-overs matches against England and New Zealand.

A four-Test series in South Africa next year is also scheduled along with a Bangladesh Test tour.

Smith's participation, however, will depend on whether the new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers' Association is agreed upon. The players' contract with the national cricket board ends on Friday.

          Preventing Another Rana Plaza: A Model for Holding Corporations Accountable   
Preventing Another Rana Plaza: A Model for Holding Corporations Accountable

The roof collapsed, trapping thousands of workers for days. The world watched, in horror, as rescue crews scrambled to pull working people out of the debris. When the search was over, 1,134 had died and approximately 2,500 were injured.

This tragic incident occurred on April 24, 2013, in Dhaka District, Bangladesh. The collapse of Rana Plaza brought worldwide scrutiny to the poor and unsafe conditions of sweatshops in this Asian nation. The victims were garment workers who were sewing brand-name clothing for multinational corporations. Most of them earned just enough money to feed their families.

The tragedy in Rana Plaza shed light on the practices of multinational corporations that utilize the global supply chain to lower costs, even if this means risking the lives of hardworking and vulnerable people. At the same time, this unfortunate incident pushed many of these corporations to work with the global labor movement to reach agreements aimed at improving working conditions in Bangladesh.

As a result, today IndustriALL Global Union and UNI Global Union joined leading fashion brands in signing a new Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety.

The new agreement, which is an extension to one signed in May 2013, will extend independent, expert building safety inspections for three more years for all covered factories, ensuring that safety improvements achieved under the first accord will be maintained, and that new problems in any factory will be addressed. The hope is that this agreement can become a model for holding corporations accountable in global supply chains throughout various sectors.

Zero deaths in garment factories under the Bangladesh Accord. The new Accord will extend safety until 2021.
IndustriALL

The agreement, announced at the OECD Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct being held Paris, so far has been signed by Kmart Australia, Target Australia, Primark, H&M, Inditex (Zara), C&A, Otto, KiK, Aldi South, Aldi North, Lidl, Tchibo, LC Waikiki, Loblaw and PVH. A further seven brands—Esprit, Hüren, Bestseller, Wibra, Schmidt Group, N Brown Group and Specialty Fashion Group Australia—have committed to signing.

IndustriALL General Secretary Valter Sanches and UNI Global Union Deputy General Secretary Christy Hoffman issued a press release expressing support for the agreement.

According to this release, the new agreement “puts greater emphasis on the right of workers to organize and join a union, recognizing worker empowerment is fundamental to assuring workplace safety.”

          Mapper of the Month : Jorieke Vyncke (Belgium)   

Jorieke, a 28 years old Belgian, has spend a lot of time the past few years to support local OpenStreetMap communities all over the world. She worked on several projects in Africa, Europe and Asia to train people and to promote OpenStreetMap by local and international players.

Jorieke at the  Mapfugees in Duinkerke

Where and when did you discover OpenStreetMap?

I discovered OpenStreetMap at the end of 2010, "you will enjoy it", and YES ! I showed OpenStreetMap to my two brothers and together with them I mapped our village Wechelderzande Thanks to my student job as mailman, it was very easy, I knew half of the house numbers in the village by heart! Some time later, I discovered HOT, the Humanitarian OpenStreetmap Team, and Map Kibera. As social agoge, who had the ambition to work internationally and who was enormously interested in participation and spatiality, it simply had to interest me. My studies in 'Conflict and Development' gave me the opportunity to delve deeper in this type of mapping. I even got the chance to work for 6 weeks in Bangladesh for my master thesis. It gave me the possibility to talk with students and professors in architecture and spatial planning, the local OpenStreetMap community and a lot of people living in slums. And yes, it was them who really convinced me to use OpenStreetMap as a tool in humanitarian and development contexts. Precisely because they can put their neighborhood on the map themselves. After this project, everything went fast, a few months later I flew for the first time to Africa for the Eurosha project, in which HOT was one of the partners. And it never really stopped since then...

Do you use OpenStreetMap yourself?

Of course ! The apps OsmAnd and Maps.ME have "saved" me several times when I am abroad. You should see the faces of the taxi drivers in Bamako or Abidjan, when I can navigate them without problems to my destination. And when you show them the apps, their surprise is complete. "OpenStreetMap for taxi drivers", would make a nice little project :-) Those apps also give me confidence when I walk around in an unknown neighborhood, because now you know where you are and where you want to go.

Besides this personal use, I also often use OpenStreetMap for my work. For example, during my last project in Côte d'Ivoire, the complete logistic planning was based on OpenStreetMap. Check out one of the maps I made with Umap for this purpose.

I was very gratefull for HOT's Ebola activation! The western part of the Côte d'Ivoire is about perfect! With a few corrections by people that knew the region very well, we got the logistics running smoothly. Other parts of the country were harder, driving around for 40 kilometers to get in that particular village, was not uncommon.

GisDay 2015 met OpenStreetMap Mali

How and where do you map?

Most of the time I map were I am or were I have been. This means a lot in Belgium, but also in places where I had worked or had spend a vacation. Most of the time, I map the basics: roads, buildings, residential areas or points of interests. I leave more complex stuff such as relations or boundaries to other mappers. [JOSM](josm.openstreetmap.de) is indispensable for me. The main reason is that this editor does not require a constant internet connection! One can download data and aerial images, work for a few hours without network and electricity, and upload the data afterwards. This comes in handy when you are somewhere remotely in Africa! I am also a fan of less popular projects on the Tasking Manager. During a sudden natural disaster, a lot of attention goes to that one area at that particular moment, but there are a lot of countries with a forgotten crisis, such as Tchad, Mali or [South Sudan(http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1656678). There is a gigantic need for maps in those countries as well.

What is your largest accomplishment as a mapper?

Bangui! I lived and worked there for 3 months, participating in the Eurosha project at the end of 2012. Bangui is the capital of the Central African Republic (CAR). Before my stay, Bangui was hardly noticeable on the map. When I had to leave the country, it was there, and the data could be used by humanitarian organisations in times of crisis. The adrenaline was pumping through my body when we got a phone call in Cameroon from UN OCHA on the day of the coup when the whole city was looted, to ask whether we could help them. Of course we could!!!

At this moment there is a map of Bangui, which includes all health facilities and also in other parts of the country the map is improving via HOT remote mapping projects.

I am also very proud of the week I spend in Lubumbashi with Medecins Sans Frontiers (MSF): https://hotosm.org/updates/2014-04-01_a_week_in_lubumbashi_drc . Although I did not map a lot myself during that period, I instructed people to map for me :-) At the end of the week, around 15 students were walking around to collect data and we got tremendous help from remote mappers. After 4 days more than 60 people from around the world helped us. This synergy with Ivan Gayton of MSF, myself and the students in the field and the remote mappers, was the first seed from which the Missing Maps projects was born a few months later.

Data collection in Bangui

What is your motivation to map?

The community and the enormous passion of the people, which shows in small things. Some examples: Someone visiting a meetup with a bus that takes him 30 minutes more, simply because he had not mapped that particular route yet. The sparkle in someone's eye when her first edit appears on the map. The fire in the email discussions on the mailing lists, ...

But also how all this chaos, somehow coordinates to the result we see today on OpenStreetMap. A database build by ordinary people, but feeding economic development, and a key stone in some humanitarian projects.

OpenStreetMap is for me a great example of the inspiring "commons based economy" of Michel Bauwens.

Besides mapping, do you do other OpenStreetMap related tasks?

Since the spring of 2015, I am in the board of HOT. Besides that, I spend quite some time to answer all kinds of emails and to bring the right people in contact with one another. From time to time I do some translations, update the wiki and make a post on osm.be . I also speak on conferences, co-organise meetups and mapathons. At this moment I am busy with the organisation of the HOTsummit and the State of the Map conference.

To conclude, is there anything else you want to mention?

Do not be afraid, just make that first edit. Everybody can participate in OpenStreetMap, I am the living proof of that!


          Mapper van de Maand: Jorieke Vyncke (België)   

Jorieke (http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Jorieke%20V) , 28 jaar en Belgische, spendeerde de afgelopen jaren veel van haar tijd aan het ondersteunen van lokale OpenStreetMap-gemeenschappen overal ter wereld. Ze werkte voor verschillende projecten in Afrika, Europa en Azië om mensen te trainen en OpenStreetMap te promoten bij lokale en internationale actoren.

Jorieke bij de Mapfugees in Duinkerke

Waar en wanneer ontdekte je OpenStreetMap?

Ik ontdekte OpenStreetMap eind 2010, "je gaat dat wel leuk vinden", en ja hoor! Ik toonde OpenStreetMap vervolgens aan mijn twee broers en mapte samen met hun ons dorp Wechelderzande. Dankzij mijn studentenjob als postbode, was dit enorm gemakkelijk, ik kende de huisnummers van half het dorp gewoon uit m'n hoofd! Een tijdje later ontdekte ik HOT, het Humanitarian OpenStreetmap Team, en Map Kibera. Als sociaal agoog die ambitie had om internationaal te werken en enorm geïnteresseerd was in participatie en ruimte kon dat niet anders dan mijn interesse opwekken. Mijn studies Conflict en Development gaven me vervolgens de mogelijkheid om dieper te graven in dit soort mappen. Ik kreeg immers de kans om 6 weken veldwerk te doen in Bangladesh voor mijn masterproef. Het gaf me de mogelijkheid om te spreken met studenten en proffen architectuur/ruimtelijke planning, lokale OpenStreetMappers en vele sloppenwijkbewoners. En ja, het zijn zij die mij echt overtuigden van OpenStreetMap als tool voor het mappen in humanitaire en ontwikkelingscontexten. Net omdat je met OpenStreetMap je buurt zelf op de kaart kan zetten. Nadien ging het snel, enkele maanden later vloog ik voor de eerste keer naar Afrika voor het Eurosha project waar HOT één van de partners was. En eigenlijk is het sindsdien niet meer gestopt...

Gebruik je zelf OpenStreetMap in je dagdagelijkse leven?

Jazeker. De apps OsmAnd en Maps.ME hebben me al meermaals 'gered' in het buitenland. Je zou de gezichten van de taxichauffeurs in Bamako of Abidjan eens moeten zien als ik ze zonder probleem kan navigeren naar de plek waar ik moet zijn. En als je dan de apps toont, zijn ze vaak helemaal verrast. "OpenStreetMap voor taxichauffeurs" het zou nog een mooi projectje zijn :-) Ook maken de mapping apps me zelfzekerder als ik weer eens ergens (doelloos) rondloop op een plek die ik niet ken. Je weet waar je bent en waar je naartoe gaat. Daarnaast gebruikte ik OpenStreetMap ook al heel vaak in mijn werk. Zo hing voor mijn laatste project in Ivoorkust de hele logistieke planning af van OpenStreetMap. Check één van de Umap kaartjes die ik maakte maar eens: http://umap.openstreetmap.fr/nl/map/villages-a-enqueter-region-tonkpi-bleu-village-pmh_88667#9/7.3093/-7.8333 Ik was héél dankbaar voor HOT's Ebola activatie! In het westen van Ivoorkust is OpenStreetMap gewoon top. Met enkele correcties door mensen die de regio goed kenden, kregen we de logistiek vrij gemakkelijk geregeld. Andere regio's in het land waren beduidend moeilijker: 40 kilometer rond rijden om toch maar in dat ene dorp te geraken, het gebeurde verschillende keren.

GisDay 2015 met OpenStreetMap Mali

Wat voor soort mapper ben je en in welke zone map je?

Meestal map ik waar ik ben en geweest ben. Dat wil zeggen in België, maar ook de plekken waar ik werkte of op vakantie ging. Meestal zijn het basisdingen die ik map: wegen, gebouwen, woongebieden of points of interest. Ingewikkeldere dingen zoals relaties of grenzen laat ik liever aan anderen over. Onmisbaar voor mij is [JOSM](josm.openstreetmap.de). Dit voornamelijk omdat deze editor geen constante internet verbinding nodig heeft. Je kan je data en luchtfoto's downloaden, voor een paar uur werken zonder internet en elektriciteit, en nadien de data uploaden. In Afrika kan dat al wel eens handig zijn! Ook ben ik fan van de 'minder populaire' projecten op de Tasking Manager. Tijdens een plotse natuurramp gaat veel aandacht vaak naar dat ene gebied op dat ene moment, terwijl er in landen met vergeten crisissen zoals Tjaad, Mali of Zuid-Soedan ook een gigantische nood is.

Wat is je grootste verwezenlijking als mapper?

Bangui! Ik woonde en werkte in het kader van het Eurosha project eind 2012 drie maanden in Bangui, de hoofdstad van de Centraal Afrikaanse Republiek (CAR). Bangui stond voordien amper op de kaart. Maar toen ik het land moest verlaten stond het er wel, en kon de data ook gebruikt worden in de crisis door de humanitaire organisaties. Adrenaline ging door m'n lijf toen we in Kameroen telefoon kregen van UN OCHA op de dag van de staatsgreep toen de hele stad geplunderd werd, kunnen jullie ons helpen??? Ja, dat kunnen we!!! Er is nu een kaart van Bangui, mét alle gezondheidsinfrastructuren en ook de rest van het land zijn we met HOT (remote) aan het mappen! Ook ben ik supertrots op mijn week in Lubumbashi met Artsen Zonder Grenzen (AZG) https://hotosm.org/updates/2014-04-01_a_week_in_lubumbashi_drc . Al heb ik zelf zo heel veel toen niet gemapt, ik heb de mensen eerder voor me laten mappen ;-) In Lubumbashi liepen er aan het einde van de week een 15-tal studenten rond om data te verzamelen, en ook werden we enorm geholpen door remote mappers. Na vier dagen hadden al meer dan 60 mensen wereldwijd ons geholpen. Uit deze synergie; van Ivan Gayton (AZG) en mezelf met de studenten op het terrein en de remote mappers, groeide het Missing Maps project enkele maanden later.

Dataverzameling in Bangui

Wat motiveert je om te mappen?

De community en de enorme passie van OpenStreetMappers die vaak blijkt uit kleine dingen. Iemand die naar een meetup komt met een bus die er een half uur langer over doet, omdat hij deze buslijn nog niet gemapt heeft. De twinkeling in de ogen van iemand die zijn eerste edit op de kaart ziet verschijnen. Het vuur waarmee er soms gemaild wordt op de mailinglijsten. ... Maar ook hoe al deze chaos zichzelf op de één of andere manier coördineert tot het resultaat wat OpenStreetMap vandaag is. Een database gebouwd door gewone mensen die zorgt voor economische ontwikkeling, maar ook een stevige steen bijdraagt aan onder andere humanitaire hulp. OpenStreetMap is een prachtig voorbeeld van de voor mij toch wel inspirerende 'commons based economy' van Michel Bauwens.

Doe je ook nog andere dingen in verband met OpenStreetMap? Sinds de lente van 2015 zit ik in de raad van bestuur van HOT. Daarnaast spendeer ik heel wat tijd aan het beantwoorden van allerlei mailtjes met vragen en de juiste mensen met elkaar in contact brengen. Af en toe vertaal ik, update ik de wiki, doe ik een post op osm.be, spreek ik op een conferentie of organiseer ik mee meetups of mapathons. Momenteel ben ik ook bezig met de organisatie van de HOTsummit en de State of the Map conferentie.

Om af te sluiten, is er iets dat je de lezer nog zou willen meedelen? Laat je niet afschrikken, doe gewoon die eerste edit. Iedereen kan OpenStreetMappen, daar ben ik het levende bewijs van!


          Modeling Effects of KM and HRM Processes to the Organizational Performance and Employee’s Job Satisfaction   
There have been many literature focusing on Knowledge Management (KM) contribution to the business world, and there is still a lacuna of empirical studies related to KM and Human Resource Management (HRM) practices. This paper examines the effects of KM and HRM practices relating to the organizational performance and employee’s job satisfaction level. A theoretical model is proposed to identify significant relationships and to develop some hypothesis. These hypotheses are then tested with a structural equation modeling using a randomly selected survey data set of 150 respondents, where variables in the questionnaire have been considered from previous empirical studies. Results demonstrate significant positive effects of KM and HRM practices to the organizational performance. Finding also reveals that employee’s loyalty to the organization depends on employee’s job satisfaction which is highly influenced by the organizational performance. Although the sample is limited to a Bangladeshi organization, the new model can be employed to datasets from other developing countries.
          Market Reaction around the Event of a Stock Split: An Analysis on the Dhaka Stock Exchange   

Stock splits, in an efficient market, are not supposed to bear any consequence on the price of a company’s stocks. However, both corporate management and regulators have tended to go through this exercise which make us think that through a stock split, either a management-induced event or a mandatory regulatory event, companies and regulators must expect to gain something. This study analyzes one such event of regulator-induced stock split in the Bangladesh markets that took place in December 2011. After studying the empirical results based on the sample of 117 mandatory stock splits in December 2011, it is found that there is overall sort of an equal distribution of positive and negative excess return pattern on both sides of the event date. Moreover, we accept the null hypothesis since the calculated t-values for the aer and caer during the 30 trading days (the event window) fall mostly within the acceptance region. Therefore, unlike some of the views presented in earlier literature concerning effects of stock splits in different markets around the world, this study found that stock splits, especially when they are undertaken as per regulatory directives, are basically a neutral event. One strong explanation for this finding can be the mandatory nature of the split because most of the previous studies undertaken used sample data sets containing management-decision induced stock splits.

          B'desh marks 1st anniversary of Dhaka terror attack   
One year after the worst terror attack in Bangladesh, a popular cafe here which was the site of the horror was reopened today even as the country was grappling to rein in radical Islamists and searching for the five remaining terrorists behind the gruesome incident.

The Holey Artisan Bakery and O Kitchen restaurant in the upmarket Gulshan area was opened for the relatives and public to pay respects to the 22 people, including an Indian girl, killed in the attack.

Representatives of various political parties including the ruling Awami League, opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, and various civil society groups and police personnel paid their respects and laid flowers at the site.

On the evening of July 1, five operatives of Islamic State-inclined Neo-Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (Neo-JMB) stormed into the eatery and started firing indiscriminately. They turned off all the lights and held the diners hostage.

They then brutally killed the hostages with guns and machetes. An Indian woman was among the 22 victims.

Around 12 hours later, para commandos stormed the restaurant. Two police officers were killed in the attack claimed by the Islamic State.

Eight suspects who were involved in its planning died in several anti-terror raids that followed. Four have been captured alive, while five more remain at large.

"We are trying to track down the five fugitives as we identified all those involved in the attack," a police spokesman told PTI.

Officials familiar with the investigations said they found evidence that 21 people were involved in the attack.

"Some 70 militants were gunned down or blew themselves up during encounters with police in the past one year. We have also arrested 128 suspected militants," police spokesman Quamrul Islam said.

But several analysts, however, said despite intensified security clampdowns after the July 1 attack, no visible progress has been made in investigations.

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan earlier this week said despite being late, the investigating agency would submit a "flawless" charge-sheet in the Holey Artisan attack case.

Attorney General Mahbubey Alam said that the prosecutors await the completion of the investigation process to "take a special initiative to ensure quick hearing of the (Holey Artisan attack) case".

"We will take the case very seriously so that the trial proceedings are completed within the shortest possible time," Alam added.

The Bangladeshi government has arrested several militants after the cafe siege, but denies the existence of the Islamic State in the country and blames home-grown groups for the attack.

Analysts believe that the IS may not be physically present in the country, but is involved in propagating jihadist ideologies and contributing to radicalisation and the recruitment of jihadists by domestic extremist groups.

          (旅遊)2016.07 孟加拉出差遊記(一)-達卡+庫米拉+Red Roof印度料理+Salban Vihara遺址+吉大港   
          孟加拉國 Bangladesh ,位於南亞,印度的東邊,以前稱東巴基斯坦,信奉伊斯蘭教(回教),是全球人口第8大國家,也是全球第2大製衣出口國,僅次於中國。 不旅不行工作剛好有到孟加拉出差的機會,就順道把出差到達卡(Dhaka)+庫米拉(Comilla)+吉大港(Chittagong)之所見,跟冰友們分享一下~ 一般聽到孟加拉國,直覺的第一反應就是孟加拉虎,若你有看過李安的"少年PI的奇幻漂流",少年PI就是和一隻孟加拉虎在海上漂流了200多天,但若旅遊或出差能遇到孟加拉虎,我想插翅也難PI了.... 不囉嗦! 孟加拉畢竟旅遊業不發達,目前多是經商、洽商等工作關係才會進入孟加拉,幾乎沒有為了度假旅遊去孟加拉的~ 從台灣要去孟加拉,現在並無任何直飛航班,因此必須到香港(國泰或港龍航空)、新加坡(新加坡航空)、泰國(泰國航空)轉機,不旅不行就從香港赤鱲角啟程出發吧~ 香港--(國際線國泰航班)-->達卡--(箱型車)-->庫米拉--(箱型車)-->吉大港--(國內線NOVOAIR航班)-->達卡--(國際線港龍航班)-->香港 ↓香港往孟加拉的國泰航班,通常是傍晚17點多起飛(香港時間),20點多到達孟加拉首都達卡機場,孟加拉時差晚台灣2小時,所以實際飛行時間約4個多小時~ 但要提醒,到香港這個擁塞的機場轉機,千萬要預留1.5小時以上時間,因為不旅不行第一次轉機時,時間就排的太緊湊,台灣飛香港的國泰又有delay,到達香港時已接近班機開始登機時間,香港機場又那麼大,雖然國泰有安排專人指引帶領轉機,人是順利上了飛機,但行李卻來不及,所以下次學會要多預留一些轉機時間~ ↓台灣護照進入孟加拉享有落地簽證,所以台灣人到孟加拉,可直接到達卡機場-沙阿賈拉勒國際機場(Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport, DAC)辦理落地簽,算是很方便,據說孟加拉政府本來只開放台灣的投資商人落地簽,但機場難以判斷,變成幾乎台灣人都可落地簽,但最好還是要有孟加拉相關單位(如公司)的邀請函,敘明邀請單位、訪問事由、天數、被邀請人姓名/護照號碼、邀請人聯繫方式等資料,因為大部分海關都會看,不過我也遇過海關沒看的時候~ 但記得要在台灣換好美金,尤其是小鈔,因為簽證費是USD50+稅USD1(小數點進位),多準備小鈔準沒錯~ 在飛機上可拿海關申報表(左邊)到入境申請表(右邊),基本上跟著護照上的資料填寫即可,至於上面需填寫的孟加拉住址或電話,可填寫邀請函上的資訊,或事先上網找達卡市區的五星級大飯店資料來填~至於海關申報表,基本都勾選"NO",沒有違規的東西~   到達孟加拉達卡國際機場後,沿著入境指標走(出入境候機室是同一層樓),從2樓走下1樓時,即可看到右邊的落地簽辦理處~沒看錯,就只有一個辦公桌,坐著1或2位櫃台警察Police,這時要先跟警察先生說"我是台灣人,要拿VISA申請表(LANDING PERMIT)",因為中國也是辦理落地簽,但中國與台灣的VISA申請表格不大一樣,所以要特別注意,別拿錯台灣專用申請表格或忘記填申請表ㄛ~ 基本上這LANDING PERMIT表(就是普通A4影印紙而已)的內容與機上那張入境表內容幾乎一樣,我通常拿到申請表就直接在櫃台桌前排隊洽辦,邊排隊邊填表,這樣較快,因為孟加拉人的效率超級慢,等輪到時再將護照/LANDING PERMIT/海關申報表/入境申請表/邀請函 一起交給櫃台警察,這時警察會問你要停留幾天,再將申請資料手寫入他的登記本中,沒錯!是手寫! 最近也有看到桌上擺了台電腦在輸入,但速度一樣是慢慢來,一字一字輸,孟加拉人做事一點都不會急喔~ 然後警察會先把文件交還,要我們去他右後方的繳費窗台繳簽證費(共USD51),我們再將所有文件及繳費收據交給警察,此時他才會在LANDING PERMIT上蓋上入境VISA章,並填上落地簽號碼及允許停留的期間,(所以停留日期千萬不要少報)~ 這樣還沒完喔! 此時警察會歸還所有文件及護照,我們往入關海關審查櫃台走,在最右邊有一個移民署櫃台,請將LANDING PERMIT交移民署官簽名(他可能隨口問哪裡人?做甚麼?..之類),這時才可拿著所有文件及護照到最左邊的VISA落地簽海關櫃檯審查入關~當然一樣要審查超久...請保持耐性~哈~ 上述,除了最後海關入境審查外,均可委由落地簽代辦人(俗稱黃牛)填寫及辦理,他們通常出現在警察辦公桌附近的休息椅區,也會主動來詢問是否需要幫助,你只要告訴他是台灣人,給他護照,他會幫你搞定一切,當然小費大約USD5左右,也有人給到USD10!!(若你沒小鈔,因為簽證要USD51,就給黃牛USD60去代辦,通常他就不會再找你錢了~請注意) ↓孟加拉達卡機場-沙阿賈拉勒國際機場(Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport),左邊是國際航廈,右邊是國內航廈~ ↓達卡是孟加拉首都,也是第一大城,市區仍持續建設中~ ↓不過,在達卡市區停留的時間不多,要直接往鄉下小鎮-庫米拉出發! 孟加拉的車是右駕,TOYOTA的車款最多,據說很多都是日本淘汰下來的二手車~ ↓清晨6點多的濛濛雲霧~ ↓孟加拉的日夜溫差頗大,看穿著就知道~ ↓這都是孟加拉的加氣站,孟加拉的車子基本上都是加天然氣,不用汽油~ ↓在加氣站,有時會看到頭頂功夫了得的兜售小販~ ↓猜猜他賣甚麼削皮的水果?? 很大膽的買來嚐試一下.....這竟然....是小黃瓜.... ↓而加氣站旁一般也會有零售小商店~ ↓零食是最沒有違和感的~哈~   ↓這是常見的加氣三輪車,類似泰國的嘟嘟車,而且有地域性,也就是說,若你從A村要到B村,中間到分界點可能需換乘B村的車~ ↓當然,人力三輪車是最普遍的交通工具~ ↓從達卡到庫米拉距離約100公里,但行車要3~4小時(不塞車),主要是沒有高速公路,且省道路況不佳,馬路大多在拓寬整修中,進度又很慢,所以我聽著mp3,顧自欣賞沿途鄉野風景~ ↓但一遇到塞車,那就綿綿無絕期了! 尤其每周五是孟加拉的例假日,出門鐵定塞車~-而孟加拉人開車又十分隨興,路上也很少看到紅路燈號誌,大家都沒在讓的,完全沒啥交通規則,哈~ ↓孟加拉傳統服飾,男人也是穿裙子~ ↓所以男人大小號,傳統都是蹲著上廁所的,照片路邊圍牆那一格一格的,就是男人露天公共廁所~ 對了!孟加拉的大貨車,幾乎都裝扮的超鮮豔,有的還有頭飾耶!哈~沿途我屢屢被大貨車驚艷到~ ↓庫米拉是吉大港區的一個縣,鬧區不大,沒啥大飯店,最好的應該是這家"Red Roof Inn紅屋頂"了~那就來吃吃道地的印度料理吧! ↓空氣中飄著印度香料的味道,各式口味的抓餅必吃,很好吃,咖哩也很夠味~但青辣椒,好辣好辣~  ↓另外不得不提,這家在地相當好吃的脆皮雞肉堡,根本就是孟加拉的肯德基嘛~(但我忘記店家名稱了..Orz) ↓椰子,波羅蜜,芭蕉,芒果...是當地常見的水果~   ↓接下來,要來去參觀一個廢墟古蹟-Salban Vihara薩爾版威赫拉寺 ,位於庫米拉的Mainamati,門票當地人是達卡幣TK$50,看到沒,外國人是達卡幣TK$200,重點是,二個字都拼錯~不過孟加拉的文盲真的還很多,據說連投票都要用水果圖樣來代替數字號碼,不然不識字,所以也不能強求啦! ↓Salban vihara是佛教的遺址,是軍隊在清理時發現,很多出土的文物都放在隔壁的博物館Mainimati Museum中,當然,博物館要另外購票喔~ ↓只能說,思古之幽情,站上基座高點,才能窺想當時這方圓170公尺的寺院規模~ 不過在這個觀光景點,我們一行人,明顯外國臉孔,反倒成為當地人的觀光景點,一直被要求合拍,首次嘗到當明星的滋味~哈哈哈~     ↓繼續往孟加拉的第二大城-吉大港出發!! 又是要4個多小時的車程,距離約160公里,一樣沒高速公路~   ↓西方文化的傳入,也能看到結婚禮車了耶~ ↓孟加拉是回教國家,回教徒(穆斯林、伊斯蘭教)不可吃豬肉、不可喝酒、而且每天要朝麥加的方向膜拜共5次~ 時刻一到,廣播聲響起,我以為他們都是在禱告室或室內膜拜,直到在這裡,看到孟加拉人就站在路邊,直接席地而拜....   ↓吉大港的動物園,這裡面應該有孟加拉虎吧!! ↓吉大港的消防隊~ ↓結果很幸運,一進入吉大港鬧區,就遇到遊行~大塞車~ ↓這是彩色的垃圾車嗎?好花枝招展~完全不知道這訴求是甚麼!!只知道孟加拉常常在罷工啦~哈~ ↓不過,我真的感覺孟加拉人都很樂天知命~就算洗澡用著池塘的水,也笑的很開心~ ↓但畢竟仍是貧窮的國家,孟加拉的小朋友看到外國人都稱呼BOSS(可能看到的外國人都是來經商的關係),有的會跟你要錢,若好心給了錢,有時會吃好道相報,一群小朋友就會蜂擁而至,無法脫身,請務必注意,給一個笑容就是友善的表示了~ ↓繼續在吉大港,要來去吃Buffet、逛夜市、買衣服.....下篇待續~

There are clear benefits to winning the toss on a pitch that will only deteriorate, but it isn't necessarily easy to force a victory. A team needs to score quickly enough to either declare or bowl the opposition out for less. Failure to capitalise in the first innings, or a collapse in the third can negate the fourth innings advantage with a routine chase. As a team India didn't play this game particularly well. Kohli scored 167 and 81, Pujara 119, and there wasn't many other batting contributions. Anderson and Broad bowled well, Rashid took wickets against the tail. But the match was won ultimately at the end of the second day when England collapsed to a run out, a poor shot, and any chance of parity was gone.

England once again batted more overs than India, which says more about their bowling than their batting. The second innings was proper trench warfare that still took in 97.3 overs, including 38 on the final day when they lost 8/71. They made India work for their win, and that bodes well for any possible come back in the series. That disparity in scoring rate makes a huge difference to their respective abilities to win matches however, with England much more likely to draw than win.

The only significant issue for England is Duckett, whose clearly lacking some combination of form and technique. The rest of the middle order have had their moments in this series, and ultimately the issue is probably not the selection but the quality of the Indian spin bowling over England's and the batting of Kohli, Pujara and Rahane. On the one hand that is an easily and often over-turned margin. On the other, they need a player to score big, or a collapse to do so. Right now, the odds are definitely favouring India for both those events.

Actual MarginNew Zealand by 8 wickets
Post-rating1017.31128.0

The scorecard probably understates the closeness of this match, and the difficulties New Zealand overcame in chasing down 108 in the last innings. Historically, scores that low are not chased very very rarely. But historically, the first three innings scoring only 500 odd runs is quite rare too. Williamson's 61 off 77 balls was not only the highest score of the match, but done at a pace that prevented any tension from arising. Raval's 55 and 37 not out in support were also impressive from a player on debut. The other debut from de Grandhomme was similarly successful with 6/41 in the first innings. With support from Boult, Southee and Wagner, and sprinklings of runs from most parties New Zealand were comfortable winners.

Nevertheless, Pakistan's ability to find the edge (if not always a safe fielder) means that they are always a good chance. Their batting was better in England, but a two-test series and little preparation makes tuning it a little difficult. It wouldn't be a surprise if the second test was closer, and New Zealand will need to improve their own batting to win again.

          Migrant Pressures Grow; Italy Presses EU Nations To Do More   
Migrants wait to disembark from the Spanish ship 'Rio Segura' in the harbor of Salerno, Italy, Thursday, June 29, 2017. Over 1200 migrants, including children, were rescued while attempting to cross the Mediterranean. The European Union's foreign minister says the bloc supports Italy's stance that it can no longer handle the flood of migrants alone, and she insists other EU countries share the burden. (Ciro Fusco/ANSA via AP)




ROME (AP) — Italy's leader pressed his European Union allies Thursday to take in more migrants, saying the relentless arrival of tens of thousands of rescued migrants on Italian shores is putting his country under enormous strain. He spoke after 10,000 migrants were pulled to safety from the Mediterranean in the last few days alone.

With an election due in less than a year, political pressure is building on Italian Premier Paolo Gentiloni's center-left government to push for relief from fellow EU nations. Flanked by EU national leaders and EU officials at a news conference in Berlin, Gentiloni said the growing number of arrivals "puts our welcome capability to a tough test."

Italy has already taken in hundreds of thousands of migrants in the last few years. Some estimates say 220,000 migrants could land in Italy by the end of 2017. "It's a country under pressure, and we ask the help of our European allies," Gentiloni said, when asked about a reported new Italian strategy of blocking Italy's ports to non-Italian NGO ships that pluck to safety migrants from distressed dinghies and other unseaworthy boats off the Libyan coast.

While acknowledging that European nations take part in patrols to deter smuggling in the central Mediterranean, Gentiloni said the job of caring for the migrants "remains in one country only" — Italy.

In addition to those who arrive, over 2,000 migrants have died trying to cross the Mediterranean this year, according to the U.N. On Sunday, Italy's anti-migrant Northern League Party teamed up with the center-right opposition forces led by former Premier Silvio Berlusconi and triumphed in several mayoral races. The Democrats, Italy's main government party, took an embarrassing drubbing in the vote.

Many Italian towns say they just can't handle hosting hundreds of migrants any more. Right-wing parties remind citizens that Italians themselves are suffering from high unemployment and a practically flat economy.

In one port alone Thursday, in Reggio Calabria, 1,066 migrants disembarked from the Save the Children rescue ship Vos Hestia. Among them were 241 unaccompanied minors. From 2015 to 2016, the number of unaccompanied minors doubled to more than 25,000, according to the Interior Ministry.

This ship's rescued migrants came from Eritrea, Bangladesh, Somalia and several sub-Saharan nations of Africa and included a four-day-old boy. Six migrants had chicken pox and some 250 showed signs of scabies, so officials set up pressurized showers.

There's also concern that if Italy, a stalwart supporter of the EU, sours on Brussels because it feels abandoned on the migrant issue, the EU's very survival itself could be compromised. "Either the Union can shake itself up, or the fear is that it can collapse definitively," said Francesco Laforgia, a lawmaker in a leftist party that split recently from the Democrats.

The idea that Gentiloni's government is mulling blocking Italy's ports to European NGO ships, which increasingly rescue migrants before EU Frontex military fleets or Italian coast guard vessels arrive, is a dramatic recognition that public patience is wearing thin.

"The situation is no long sustainable," Nicola Latorre, head of the Senate's defense commission, told the Il Messaggero daily. "Obviously saving human lives remains a priority. But it's unthinkable that Italy does it all by itself."

Earlier Thursday, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini backed Italy's stance and insisted that other EU countries share the burden of caring for migrants. But previous plans hatched in Brussels to make other EU countries take in a fixed number of migrants from Italy and Greece have failed.

Several central and eastern European EU members — including large countries like Hungary and Poland — have flat out refused to take in a quota of the asylum-seekers, many of whom are economic migrants and not refugees from war or persecution.

          The Billion Dollar Spelling Mistake - Digital criminals digital world   
Following on from this recent post regarding the Hatton Garden heist with a value thought to be in the region of £35M (~$50M US) comes another Bank heist - this time on an all together much larger scale. Last month hackers thought to have utilised run of the mill script kiddie malware breached weak security controls at the Central Bank of Bangladesh. Multiple transfer requests totalling nearly $1 billion were then sent to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, allowing $81 million to transfer before one of the routing banks Deutsche Bank queried with CBB after noticing a spelling mistake on a fake end party ; Sri Lankan NGO Shalika Fandation not Foundation. Bank Chairman Atiur Rahman has unsurprisingly quit after trying to hide the loss from the Government and Board of Directors until the story leaked to a newspaper in the Philippines.

          Rekonseptualisasi Gerakan Ikatan   

Indonesia berdiri sebagai negara yang mengembangkan landasan nasionalisme multi etnis, berusaha membangun kesejahteraan rakyatnya melalui bentuk keadilan sosial. Istiah indonesia diperkenalkan oleh George windsor earl awal tahun 1850an yang merujuk pada kata india dan nesos(Greek;pulau). Sehingga istilah indonesia berdasarkan terminologi adalah kepulauan india. Futher india” istilah yang digunakan Inggris dan Nederlands Indies oleh belanda, untuk menunjukkan kawasan ini[1]. Latar belakang kemiripan budaya dengan india menyebabkan negeri ini digandengkan dengan india. Propaganda agama yang dilakukan abad ke-7 melahirkan asimilasi budaya antara india dan indonesia, sehingga membentuk tradisi yang akan melahirkan nilai kebangsaan dan keadilan[2]. Semangat nasionalisme bukanlah suatu hal yang hanya lahir dari ajaran agama, tetapi juga dipegaruhi situasional politik dan kepentingan. Semangat membangun negara satu dengan istilah nusantara yang awalnya digagas oleh kerajaan singosari melalui raja kertanegara serta majapahit melalui mahapatih gajah mada, awalnya ditujukan dalam rangka menghadapi ekspansi kekuasaan cina dan portugis. Perasaan ketidakmauan dijajahlah yang melahirkan nasionalisme, patriotisme serta solidaritas.
Kemerdekaan adalah jembatan emas bagi bangsa kita untuk kehidupan layak. Ada berbagai kendala dewasa ini bagi bangsa yang memiliki jumlah penduduk  200 juta-an (survey mei 2010 menunjukkan diperkirakan jumlah penduduk berkisar 237,6 juta jiwa) untuk menuju kesejahteraan. Berkembangnya penyakit kronik menahun, makin sulitnya mendapatkan pekerjaan, biaya pendidikan yang semakin mahal, kebutuhan hidup yang meningkat, pergolakan kekuasaan dan hegemoni borjuis yang marak serta berbagai degradasi moral yang menimpa rakyat, menjadi sekelumit masalah yang menjadi pakaian negeri ini. Padahal soekarno dalam pidatonya menjelaskan bagaimana pengaruh ketidakpuasan rakyat akan melahirkan gerakan rakyat[3]. Sedangkan dinamika gerakan rakyat dalam ketahanan nasional antara penguatan kerjasama bahu-membahu membangun kesejahteraan atau disintegrasi sebagai wujud ketidakpuasan.
Perkembangan masyarakat yang dibarengi dengan teknologi informasi menciptakan ruang gerak yang luas bagi tumbuhnya peradaban manusia. Peradaban manusia mengalami tiga gelombang perubahan dahsyat yang membawa pengaruh tidak hanya area geografis, ekonomi, kegiatan behavioral, nilai-norma-kebudayaan, ideologi-mindset-world view tetapi juga hubungan sosial-lingkungan dan keTuhanan. Pembagian gelombang agriculture, industrial dan technologicalmembawa pola determinasi nilai kehidupan yang awalnya kerjasama yang didasarkan pada aspek kepercayaan menjadi kontrak dan mutualisme. Persaingan tidak hanya berkisar antar individu tetapi melibatkan komunitas yang akan melahirkan kelas sosial dan status sosial. Orientasi kehidupan yang mulanya dipenuhi sebagai bagian dari kesatuan alam sebagai ciptaan Tuhan, berubah menjadi kesenangan-kemudahan dan kenyamanan[4]. Orientasi kerja yang berubah dari solidaritas mekanik berubah menjadi solidaritas organis dengan spesialisasi yang jelas[5]. Batasan-batasan makhluk kini juga mulai terkikis dengan bentukan gelombang baru revolusi biologi genetika dan konvergensi tekhnologi informatika yang akan memperluas area intervensi manusia tidak hanya pada lingkungan tetapi makhluk[6].
Perkembangan masyarakat memiliki pola yang khas dimana detail prosesnya dapat kita amati dalam kehidupan praksis saat ini. Kehidupan agriculture, industrial dan teknologi bercampur dalam kesatuan kehidupan bangsa. Sedangkan pola pengembangannya antara ketiga gelombang saling tarik menarik area pengaruh. Kemudahan dan aksesabilitas menjadi landasan bagi teknologi untuk berkembang, sedangkan keuntungan dan pekerjaan bagi industrial. Kehidupan agriculture akan terus berkembang karena ia menempatkan kebutuhan dasar pangan sebagai pola perkembangannya. Sehingga tiga gelombang yang dinyatakan alvin toffler sebagai perubah dinamika sosial telah melahirkan tiga sistem sosial dimana tumbuh dan berkembang sesuai kondisi(intervensi modal-industri, status politik-kekuasaan, alam-disaster), kemampuan masyarakat dan potensi kehidupan disitu. Asimilasi adaptasi kemudahanlah yang menempatkan kerjasama antara ketiga sistem sosial ini. Walaupun gelombang perubahan akan kita lihat arahnya kearah teknologi tetapi banyak faktor juga yang mempengaruhi pola penetrasinya, sehingga intervensi politik layaknya melihat dengan jeli fenomena ini sebagai bagian yang utuh. Pertumbuhan ditandai dengan bertambahnya massa dan ukuran dalam kurun waktu, sehingga kebaikan dan keburukan merupakan pilihan dari akhir standar kurun waktu tersebut. Pengetahuan pencegahan, mengajarkan sebelum semuanya terlambat maka prosesnya harus diamati dan dilakukan intervensi. Ada dua area pengamatan sosiologi yang perlu kita tinjau yakni status kategoris; yang menempatkan pribadi berdasarkan asal paling dasar (gender, umur, ras) dan status afiliasi yang menempatkan pola produk sosial sebagai ikatannya( agama, bahasa, budaya). Dua status diatas dijadikan ajang pencegahan secara sosiologis terhadap dampak buruk adanya supra-national entities yang merupakan akibat lahirnya gelombang industrial dan teknologi meliputi Hak azasi manusia internasional, sistem perbankan global, korporasi multinasional[7].
Kelahiran modernitas awal abad 17 ditandai tanda momentual renaissance, enlightenment, reformation, Revolusi amerika dan prancis serta revolusi industri.Perubahan sosial yang signifikan, perpindahan populasi dari komunitas lokal sempit menuju kesatuan kota, pembagian pekerjaan, penggunaan market yang rasional, birokrasi dan nasionalisme merupakan gejala lahirnya demokrasi, kapitalisme, media masa, science dan kesatuan bangsa. Perkembangan modernitas secara ringkas mempunyai dua proyek yakni technical project, kontrol penguasaan semesta dengan teknologi dan social project yang merujuk pada hubungan rekan dan persahabatan melalui fakta sosial yang terdiri dari pengetahuan cara beraksi, berfikir, merasa terhadap bangsa lain. Penguasaan terhadap sosial dan teknikal akan melahirkan negara yang besar, yang punya pengaruh terhadap yang lain. Jika hal ini dilandasi dengan ketidak-puasan serta keinginan kejayaan maka akan melahirkan sikap imperialisme dan kolonialisme terhadap bangsa lain. Kemerdekaan bangsa indonesia secara fisik melahirkan persamaan akan penentuan nasib kedepan yang lebih mulia, tetapi kemerdekaan bukanlah barang kekal. Kemerdekaan adalah sesuatu yang patut untuk dipertahankan atas kesewenang-wenangan, penindasan dan bentuk penghinaan akan bangsa. Penjajahan tidak selamanya menggunakan senjata, tetapi menggunakan cara, mentalitas, serta ketergantungan terhadap penguasa. Perang tidak hanya melibatkan orang dan teknologi tetapi juga perusakan karakter peradaban luhur bangsa.
A.      New age diseasedan Patologi sosial
Istilah patologi sosial merunjuk pada pengetahuan mengenai penyakit yang terjadi selami interaksi sosial. Sebagaimana metodologi diagnostik, fenomena yang nampak dalam kehidupan keseharian hanyalah symptom bagi persaan subyektif dan signuntuk gejala obyektif. Fenomena symptomatis yang menunjuk berbagai gangguan diantaranya dalam bidang kesehatan kita akan melihat bergolaknya disability, kesakitan, status gizi yang terjadi bukan hanya karena faktor infeksi tetapi lebih pada penyakit kronis yang disebabkan ketidak ramahan lingkungan dan gaya hidup[8]. Dalam bidang perekonomian dimana kebutuhan hajat hidup semakin meningkat sedangkan adanya lahan pekerjaan semisal lahan pertanian semakin sedikit. Walaupun angka kemiskinan menunjukkan jumlah yang bervariatif, dan kurang menunjukkan signifikasi peningkatan tetapi gejala simptomatis dalam terapi penyakit ini juga harus diobati[9]. Dibidang pendidikan, kini tujuannya menjadi kabur yang dulunya pengetahuan dan semangat kebangsaan kini sekedar pemenuhan status sosial atau dengan bahasa ekstrim disebut  orientasi manipulatif karakter[10]. Dibidang pemerintahan kelakuan korupsi makin menjadi diikuti sikap etika yang semakin menurun dikalangan wakil rakyat ataupun pejabat tinggi negara lainnya. Tentunya kasus-kasus diatas hanya bersifat tukilan yang mampu harus dianalisi lebih detail agar dicapai solusi. Adanya symptom agar tepat diagnosis haruslah ada indikator penilaian,kalau tidak hasil yang didapat hanyalah bersifat palsu (falsifiability)[11].
Pengaruh ekologi kota dalam modernisasi saat ini menempati bangunan penting bagi terciptanya kelas sosial baru dan komunitas baru. Kelas sosial yang tersisih dari seleksi sosial yang akan menjadi kuli, pengangguran, gelandangan, pemulung yang rata-rata mendiami slum area di pinggiran kota. Ada juga pengaruh modernisasi menjadikan peningkatan kelayakan hidup bagi masyarakat yang bertahan(survivor)sehingga menciptakan borjuasi. Perbedaan kelas sosial tidak hanya melahirkan kesejahteraan yang berbeda tetapi juga budaya yang berkembang. Kehidupan fashion, food, style, glamour menjadikan kebutuhan sampingan selain masalah perut bagi kelas sosial tinggi. Sedangkan apresiasi masyarakat slum area lebih cenderung menunjukkan perjuangan kelas dan ekstrim, pendekatan rock, lagu kebebasan, dandanan yang necis-urakan menjadi ciri mereka. Jika hal ini berlanjut maka akan terjadi tindakan kriminal dan terjadilah chaos. Hal ini dapatlah kita amati dari bangsa kita saat terjadinya reformasi, lumpuhnya berbagai sektor perdagangan dan perekonomian kian mencekam seiring dengan gelombang perubahan. Fenomena chaos dan perjuangan dalam penyakit bisa kita ibaratkan sebagai stroke, dimana ia merupakan komplikasi penyakit vaskuler kronik yang sebelumnya menjangkit penderita dan ditandai dengan tidak berfungsinya separuh tubuh. Jangan sampai tindak modernisasi kota menciptakan pembatasan peran kesejahteraan yang melahirkan dikotomi sosial.
New age disease sebagai kelompok penyakit bagian dari perkembangan penyakit dewasa ini, secara definisi merupakan penyakit yang disebabkan karena proses degenerasi dan penuaan suatu tubuh. Suatu bangsa bisa mengidap penyakit ini yang sifatnya kronik. Poverty yang sifatnya transient karena krisis ekonomi ataupun gejolak sosial jika tidak tertangani akan melahirkan chronic poverty. Dalam kelompok New age disease penyakit demensia juga diidentifikasi mulai nampak pada masyarakat kita. Perlu diingat penyakit demensia ada yang sifatnya benign yakni awal dimana peristiwa-peristiwa dekat sulit diidentifikasi, dan juga demensia alzheimer dimana seseorang hanya mampu mengingat masa kecilnya, tidak mengenal kehidupan sekelilingnya bahkan namapun terkadang lupa. Arus teknologi dan informasi dan pergolakan budaya asing lewat fashion, food, music, style,glamour,club,film harus dicermati secara baik dan bijak agar rasa nasionalisme, nilai pancasila, semangat UUD 1945 dan pengetahuan falsafah leluhur bukan menjadi ingatan lampau yang dilupakan. Bahkan dimungkinkan sekali identitas sebagai bangsa indonesia akan dilupakan sebagai tanda demensia alzheimer sosial.
B.       New social movementantara perubahan sosial dan gerakan organisatoris
1.      Prasyarat nilai, ide dan praksis organisasi
Gerakan sosial mengambil peranannya dalam perubahan pola determinasi masyarakat melalui intervensi sekelompok personal. Perubahan sosial dalam lingkupnya bisa dibagi menjadi dua area yakni are individual dan society. Sedangkan masing-masing area tersebut dibagi lagi menjadi perubahan yang sifatnya total atau parsial. Dalam sudut pandang society maka perubahan dibagi menjadi reformative(perubahan partial) dan transformative(perubahan total). New social movement ditandai dengan perubahan sosial dimana terangkum dalam 3 entitas diantaranya; nilai transformative, identitas personal dan simbol[12]. Simbol tidak hanya dimaknai lambang tetapi juga bahasa, semboyan, bendera bahkan sandi. Pengaruh simbol dalam perjuangan sosial dimaksudkan sebagai visualisasi misi dan harapan ke depan. Pengetahuan dan telaah mengenai simbol saat ini penting dilakukan sebagai jembatan pendidikan makna dasar harapan kedepan. Jasad organisasi sebagai pelaku perubahan harus mampu menciptakan semboyan-semboyan perjuangan bagi para anggota didalamnya.
Pembangunan identitas personal bagi kader organisasi merupakan hal penting. Personality(Inggris) atau persona(Latin) yang berarti topeng ,bukanlah menjadikan seseorang berwajahkan topeng menipu sana-sini tetapi topeng yang dimaksud disini adalah karakter, watak, sifat yang khas, yang unik. Identitas dimakanai sebagai jati diri yang membedakan dirinya dengan orang lain[13]. Jadi chracter building harus mampu ditampilkan oleh kader-kader ikatan. Penguatan karakter kader harus berlandaskan ideologis. Jarang kita memahami bahwa ideologi mempunyai dua sifat yakni filosofis dan praksis. Secara filosofis Religiusitas, Intelektualitas dan Humanitas cukup mampu membawa gerakan IMM terdiferensiasi yang diterjemahkan ketataran cabang struktural dibawahnya. Dilain sisi, ideologi praksis yang menjadi tujuan praksis selama kurun waktu tertentu belum terlalu mampu diterjemahkan. Standarisasi dan metodologis sistematis berdasarkan analisis sosial dan kondisional, belum mampu terbentuk agar tercipta parameter yang jelas mengenai apa targetan dan jangka waktu mencapainya. Setelah mampu menciptakan ideologi praksis gerakan maka dijadikanlah simbol kader IMM dalam tataran kata penyemangat, simbol praksis atau lagu.
Transformatif mengambil makna perubahan yang sifatnya total dan ruang lingkup society merupakan targetan gerakan. Dalam pelaksanaannyanya area social dan kolektif-organisasi, harus mampu dipahami dengan benar. Nurani kolektif (Collective Conscience) dan kebiasaan kolektif (Collective Behaviour) merupakan dua syarat yang harus dipenuhi agar perubahan transformatif mampu tercipta. Menumbuhkembangkan nurani yang sifatnya kolektif merupakan rangkaian dari pola pembinaan kader dalam menyadari hakikat hidup, kesadaran personal dan tumbuhnya sikap. Pola pembinaan kader berdasarkan ideologi filosis(Religiusitas, Intelektualistas, Humanitas) melalui berbagai jalan dan salah satu tugas pimpinan ikatan disini membuka kesempatan serta terbukanya ruang publik bagi tumbuhkembangnya diskusi, silaturahim, rembug bareng serta perlekatan kehidupan sosial (praksis kemasyarakatan). Kebiasaan kolektif melalui perilaku keseharian diterapkan sesuai dengan kondisi culture serta landasan keilmuan bagi grass root komisariat. Setelah kebiasaan kolektif dan nurani kolektif, dimiliki kader maka langkah selanjutnya menjadikan mereka agent of changebagi lingkungan melalui perlekatan sosial yang diharapkan.
2.      Diversifikasi struktural-fungsional     
Sebuah organisasi tidak akan berkembang secara pesat tanpa didukung pembagian kerja yang jelas. Organisasi  Struktur organisasi tercipta dengan sistematika area kerja serta target sasaran demi terwujudnya cita-cita organisasi. Pola kerjasam yang tercipta dalam suatu organisasi merujuk pada strategi perwujudan misi. Pengembangan organisasi sesuai dengan kondisi(waktu), informasi, Resources, knowledge[14]. Pengetahuan bagi organisasi sebagai pijakan kebijakan kedepan, terkait strategi dan arah gerak tepat sasaran. Pemanfaatan sumberdaya menjadi permasalahan khusunya organisasi yang mengembangkan cabang serta yang terdiri dari kesatuan unit kultur-etnik. Sumberdaya mahasiswa sebagai basis intelektualisme menjadi pergolakan permasalahan. Keseragaman materi serta arah pengembangan organisasi tanpa memandang kultur-etnik pijakannya, maka lama kelamaan terjadilah penolakan masyarakat dan matinya organisasi tersebut. Hal tersebut dikarenakan karena metode serta arah manajemen yang salah[15]. Basis intelektual-fakultas telaah ilmu, menempatkan metodologi dan pendekatan sesuai dengan pengembangan science tersebut. Walaupun arah targetnya sama, penggunaan berbagai karakter keilmuan akan melahirkan komprehensivitas analisis yang melahirkan keberagaman manfaat. Pergerakan yang berbasiskan ilmu dan pendekatan tekhnologikal menempatkan azas kegunaan sebagai pendekatan target sosial perubahan.
Decision making salah satu hal yang harus dimiliki dalam kepemimpinan. Pengaruh informasi dan kondisi menempatkan pemimpin dalam menyerap informasi yang ada kemudian diterapkannya kemana laju organisasi akan diarahkan. Perang kekuasaan dan tarik-menarik pengaruh, menempatkan organisasi harus sigap dan berusha menanamkan pengaruhnya. Pembagian kerja dalam pencapaian tujuan organisasi, hendaknya dievaluasi sesuai agenda dengan mekanisme yang disepakati. Penguatan organisasi melalui struktur kekuasaan yang jelas, interaksi sosial, kebiasaan kolektif akan menjadikan kerjasama sosial antaranggota maupun atara anggota dan masyarakat taget. Hubungan kerjasama sosial-organisasi, jika berlangsung harmonis akan menempatkan organisasi itu dalam struktur sosial masyarakat dan jika diikuti dengan proses sosial maka akan lahilah produk sosial sebagai tanda bahwa organisasi tersebut merupakan bagian penggerak dan penting dalam terbentuknya unsur material sebagai contohnya masyarakat yang mulanya tidak ada listrik dengan keberadaan organisasi tersebut muncullah listrik bagi semua, atau dulunya tidak ada koperasi industri kecil sekarang muncul koperasi tersebut. Sedangkan unsur non-material menempatkan budaya sebagai produk unggulan yang terdeterminasi melalui bahasa, nilai, norma, adat kebiasaan bahkan kepercayaan dan agama.
C.       Peranan Organisasi dalam pencapaian negara kesejahteraan (Welfare state)
Masyarakat yang adil dan makmur merupakan harapan bagi setiap individu yang mengaku sebagai rakyat di setiap negara. Pendekatan yang digunakan tiap negara dalam mewujudkan cita-citanya dengan berbagai macam ada yang menggunakan pendekatan konstitusional, pendekatan musuh sosial ataupun penguatan pelayanan sosial[16]. Negara kesejahteraan memainkan peranan dalam proteksi dan promosi terkait ekonomi dan kehidupan sosial yang sejahtera yang berdasarkan pada persamaan kesempatan, distribusi kelayakan hidup dan tanggung jawab publik terhadap mereka yang kurang mampu agar hidup yang baik [17]. Peranan organisasi kepemudaan dalam pembangunan kesejahteraan bangsa utamanya membentuk pribadi-pribadi yang paham dan mengerti akan negerinya, serta mampu berperan dalam proses pembangunan agar tercipta kehidupan yang lebih baik. Pembangunan yang dilakukan secara gethok-tularsecara intensif akan mampu merubah sikap negatif yang menghambat kemajuan. Dibantu dengan kerjasama solidaritas antar anggota maka targetan sosial yang diharapkan, akan lebih terealisisr. Hal tersebut penting sekali dalam, penerapan teori sosiologi secara sederhana[18]. Sejarah Bangsa mencatat bagaimana peranan organisasi kepemudaan mampu menumbuhkan semangat perjuangan, kesetaraan serta pendidikan ke masyarakat. Sebagai pemuda-pemuda penerus tambuk perjuangan, maka semangat yang ada diambil dengan pendekatan situsional dan belajar dari pendahulu kita.
Implementasi gerak yang dilakukan oleh IMM selayaknya melihat kondisi sosio-antropologis area geraknya. Modernitas yang menimbulkan berbagai efek sosial, tidak harus disikapi melalui strategi yang sama. Kehidupan IMM di kota besar dan kota periferal jelas berbeda dalam pengambilan perannya. Proses sosial dalam setiap tahapnya akan terlihat jelas dan adanya bukti dilain area. Walaupun gelombang perubahan peradaban manusia ada beberapa, tetapi setiap stepnya bisa diamati di lain masyarakat. Sebagai contohnya masyarakat agriculture bisa kita amati didaerah pedalaman negara ini, masyarakat industrial bisa kita amati didaerah perindustrian kawasan berikat, masyarakat terkhnologi akan kita lihat dalam masyarakat megapolis. Jadi dimanapun IMM berada dan sayap-sayap sudah digepakkan maka ia harus mampu membaca situasi dengan tepat agar kerja dan energi yang dikeluarkan mampu dirasakan sesama manfaatnya. Pengaruh-pengaruh buruk akibat proses modernasi dan berkembangnya peradaban manusia harus menjadi perhatian bagi organisasi. Moralitas dan rasa cinta terhadap bangsa mulai luntur termakan budaya hedonisme, oportunisme serta kesejahteraan pribadi. Moral Force dan penguatan bangsa menjadi satu hal mahal saat ini untuk membangun bangsa lewat organisasi[19].
Agama dan unsur rohaniah saat ini penting sebagai ajaran yang mengedepankan kesejahteraan sosial. Muhamadiyah memberikan contoh bagaimana semangat agama mampu dibawa keranah perbaikan kehidupan sosial yang lebih baik[20]. Konsepsi tauhid yang utuh membawa arah tujuan hidup yang mengutamakan kecintaan kepada Allah. Hal ini membawa konsekuensi bahwa nilai-nilai yang mencondongkan pengabdian ke sisi selain itu harus dikikis. Harta yang menjadi bentuk lain tuhan sebagai latar belakang timbulnya masyarakat kapitalis, ditentang dalam islam. Islam mengajarkan untuk bekerja keras serta membantu kehidupan sesama, bahkan perjuangan akan ketertindasan juga diajarkan dalam agama ini[21]. Semangat bekerja keras dan filosofi bangsa dipraktekan bangsa cina menjadikan bangsa ini raksasa industri dan punya peranan dalam tata pasar dunia. Nilai moral, semangat kerjasama, sosial-kemanusiaan, kemandirian serta menjadi manusia yang taat beragama merupakan misi-misi yang harus disebarluaskan kepada anggota organisasi dan masyarakat, sehingga perubahan masyarakat mampu tercipta secara signifikan dan harapan hidup kedepan yang lebih baik menjadi satu hal realistis dengan semangat tauhid yang penuh.
