Migrants trouble in Sweden Election

Sweden election due  9 Sept is facing many challenges, fake news, cyber attacks, migrant attacks on the candidates .
Tensions are high in Sweden ahead of the general election, which is scheduled to take place in ten days. Sweden’s biggest and oldest Social Democratic Party is set to get one of its worst results in history while the nationalist Sweden Democrats enjoy record support and might well end up second.
Sweden: 9 September! 9 days to go! Voting is already open until and including 9 September. Election day: voting stations open 8 am to 8 pm
Swedish right-wing Alternative for Sweden (AfS) party, who is currently running for parliament, says he was “punched in the face” by a young immigrant during an election campaign stop in Western Sweden.

It should have been an ordinary campaign meeting, which every party in Sweden holds ahead of the elections. But things went wrong for AfS in the city of Uddavalla, where the party, known for its hard-line anti-immigrant rhetoric, decided to make a stop.

In a separate incident, two young men attempted to pelt the leader of another right-wing party, the Sweden Democrats, Jimmie Akesson, with eggs and tomatoes during his own campaign stop in the city of Falkenberg. However, they were promptly stopped by the police. The incident led to a scuffle.

“One person was arrested for violence against a public official,” Western Police District spokesman Stefan Gustafsson said. Akesson himself took the incident lightly as he said that “someone was so kind to give him a tomato” and it “tasted good.”

“I got my start right here.” – President Obama

“I got my start right here.”
– President Obama

When President and Mrs. Obama chose to locate their Presidential Center in Chicago, they wanted to make sure of one thing: that our neighbors here on the South Side were with us every step of the way.

 

And they have been.

Over the last several months, they’ve signed postcards and written letters of support. They’ve come to public meetings to voice their excitement. And they even stood before the Chicago City Council to make their case for the Obama Presidential Center.

On Tuesday, President Obama surprised some of these supporters and stakeholders at a Foundation event to thank them for all they’ve done.

Watch President Obama share his vision for the Obama Presidential Center—a public space that will honor history, help revitalize the South Side, and connect people throughout the community.

President Obama joins supporters at a Foundation event

Chicago is where President Obama’s story began—and this Center is an opportunity to give back to the community that helped write it.

But it will also be a chance to build a world-class museum and public gathering space that remind young visitors—from around the city and around the world—that their potential is limitless.

I hope you’re as excited as we are,

– David

CEO, The Obama Foundation

ADB finance package for WB of $245 Million

Asian Development Bank approved a financing package of $245 million for the state of West Bengal.


The Board of Directors of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a financing package totaling $245 million to provide safe, sustainable, and inclusive drinking water service to about 1.65 million people in three districts of West Bengal state, India, affected by arsenic, fluoride, and salinity.

High arsenic and fluoride levels in drinking water are a threat to public health in India, where West Bengal is by far the worst affected state. Through efficient use of surface water and a shift to piped water schemes, the ADB project will reduce the burden of disease from arsenic and fluoride while preserving groundwater and enhancing climate resilience.

With about 85% of water in India’s rural areas coming from groundwater, some 27 million people are at risk from arsenic and fluoride contamination. Arsenic in drinking water can lead to a range of problems including cancer, while high exposure to fluoride can cause dental or skeletal fluorosis and bone diseases.

In West Bengal, more than 90% of the rural population relies on groundwater, making it home to about 72% of India’s population at risk from arsenic and 5% of the population at risk from fluoride contamination. Increased withdrawal of groundwater also leaves the area more vulnerable to climate change and disasters, especially regular flooding, and is causing an intrusion of salinity into the water.

The project will provide continuous potable water through metered connections to about 390,000 individual households in three districts—Bankura, North 24 Parganas, and Purba Medinipur. Water will be provided through bulk water systems, consisting of intakes, water treatment plants, and transmission mains that will be connected to a grid with existing and new systems in the project districts. The project will use a high-technology based smart water management system to efficiently manage services—a first for large scale rural water schemes in India. Similar to most states in India, piped water supply in West Bengal’s rural areas has been provided through shared public stand-posts to date.

To ensure sustainability of services, the state has adopted an innovative asset management and service delivery framework for the project, clearly defining roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders, including that of the state-level entity for bulk water operation and of the project Gram Panchayats for distribution management. The capacity of institutions and stakeholders involved in delivering drinking water services will be extensively strengthened by the project. The project will also carry out awareness campaigns on water, sanitation, and hygiene; and promote water and sanitation safety planning.

Besides a reduced health toll, the project will contribute to poverty reduction and an overall improvement in the quality of life. For example, it will reduce the drudgery faced by women and girls, leaving them time for more productive work or schooling. With about 350 jobs expected to be generated by the project, about a third will go to women.

The total project cost is $349 million, for which ADB will provide a loan of $240 million and grant of $3 million from the Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction, financed by the Government of Japan. The West Bengal government will provide $106 million in funding. ADB will also administer a $2 million grant from the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund. This will support the state government in strengthening its smart water management system, improve flood-related early warning and response, and provide training on operation and maintenance as well as climate change and disaster resilience. The project is due for completion in June 2024.

Launch of “Staggering Forward: Narendra Modi and India’s Global Ambition”

Lots of books on PM Modi is in the market but with this book of  Professor Bharat Karnad is of immense importance who gives the tales of India in home affairs to foreign affairs and her national interest beneficial from both ends with in ambit of PM. An interesting subject of researcher with research.

Image may contain: 1 person, crowd and indoor

Prime Minister Modi’s first term, however, raises troubling questions. How has his strongman persona and social background impacted policymaking? Has Modi delivered on the high expectations to advance India’s national interest and security?

There is a paradigm shift in India’s politics. With his clean reputation, proven track record as chief minister of Gujarat and formidable leadership qualities on display, Narendra Modi seemed the right fit for the prime minister’s job, and just the man to turn the country around after the decade-long UPA rule by the modest and tongue-tied Manmohan Singh.Has the country’s role in the region, in Asia and the world changed, become more meaningful? What has been the effect of Modi’s India First foreign policy on neighbours, and with respect to raising India’s stock in the world and showing the Indian military has teeth? Especially with regard to the US, Russia and China.

Analysing Prime Minister Modi’s foreign and military policies in the context of India’s evolving socio-political and economic milieu, global power politics featuring other strongmen-alpha male leaders (Trump, Putin, Xi, Erdogan, Shinzo Abe), and of Modi’s persona and style of governance, this book offers a critical perspective that helps explain why India has not progressed much towards becoming a consequential power. Argumentative and thought-provoking, Staggering Forward is a must-read to understand India’s foreign and national security policies since 2014.

Fresh protests in Chemnitz.

The streets of a Berlin neighborhood were filled with people protesting the recent displays of anti-immigrant hate in Chemnitz. Their march coincided with fresh protests in Chemnitz.
What was expected to be a small gathering of 100 or so individuals speaking out against hate and xenophobia turned into a demonstration of thousands in the Berlin neighborhood of Neukölln on Thursday night.
The demonstration was a counteraction to the far-right protests that have taken place in the city of Chemnitz over the past days, which have included anti-immigrant violence and intimidation. The initial trigger for the protests was the fatal stabbing of a 35-year-old German-Cuban man on Sunday, with two foreign-born men under arrest as suspects in the crime.
While events in the German capital were getting underway, far-right supporters in Chemnitz launched a fresh protest, drawing about 1,000 people. They proceeded without violence as state-level politicians met with the city’s citizens. Reports DW

Malcolm Turnbull quits

Malcolm Turnbull has resigned from federal parliament, one week after being ousted from the top job, ending 14 years as an MP.

Australia’s former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull on Friday resigned from parliament, a source familiar with the matter said, stripping the government of its one-seat parliamentary majority.

Turnbull last week said he would resign from parliament after he was ousted from office in a bitter party-room contest which ushered in the country’s sixth leader in the last decade.

“The speaker of the house of parliament received a resignation letter from Malcolm Turnbull this afternoon,” said a source familiar with the matter. The source declined to be named as she is not authorised to talk to the media.

Until a by-election can be contested, Australia’s new Prime Minister Scott Morrison is left relying on the support of independent lawmakers to pass legislation, inhibiting the government’s agenda just eight months out from an election.

Besides no longer having a majority in the lower house of parliament, the government does not control the upper house Senate.

According to the latest opinion polls Australia’s ruling Liberal-National coalition will struggle to be re-elected in a poll due by May 2019.

After a tumultuous Liberal party leadership battle last week, the two-party-preferred vote between the opposition Labor party and the coalition blew out 56-44 in favour of Labor, which would translate into a heavy election defeat.

Parliament is currently in recess, resuming on September 10.

A by-election is unlikely to held until the end of September at the earliest, leaving Morrison without a majority for at least the next two-week sitting of parliament.

Morrison paid tribute to his predecessor while in Jakarta for talks with his Indonesian counterpart on a free trade deal that could be signed later this year.

“I just want to send to my friend Malcolm, and to Lucy (his wife), and to their entire family all my best wishes and all my love,” Morrison told reporters.

“You’ve served our country well, and on behalf of our country as prime minister, I just want to say thanks.”
