Alberta celebrates Canada’s 150th with special events and new offerings Share TORONTO — There’s no question that Alberta went through a rough patch during the height of a recession in 2016. But while the economy was sinking to new lows during the two-year downturn, tourism remained largely unaffected, says Travel Alberta.During a media visit to Toronto with fellow tourism representatives, Rose Bolton, Global Media Specialist for Travel Alberta told Travelweek that although business tourism was down in 2016, leisure travel was actually up. She attributes this to the fact that Canadians are vacationing close to home in an attempt to save costs, while Americans are also crossing the border north to take advantage of the favourable exchange rate.Visitation is expected to remain on an upswing in 2017 in light of Canada’s 150th anniversary. Bolton says Parks Canada’s free Discovery Pass anniversary offer as a huge selling feature; it includes free admission to Canada’s National Parks, Historic Sites and Marine Conservation Areas throughout the year. Included on the list is Banff National Park, Canada’s oldest national park and established in 1885.Peyto Lake in Banff National ParkTo complement the Discovery Pass, Alberta’s top cities are offering special promotions and events to commemorate Canada 150. In Edmonton, for example, Capital Boulevard has completed a major refresh that includes high quality street furnishings, broad tree-lined sidewalks and mid-street islands with permanent art installations. Commissioned by five Canadian artists, these installations tell the tale of Canada’s history, with the first one debuting on Canada Day – July 1st.Other new happenings in Edmonton include a new landmark facility for the Royal Alberta Museum, opening in late 2017, the September 2016 opening of Rogers Place, home of the Edmonton Oilers, and the 2018 debut of JW Marriott Edmonton, which is regarded as one of the most significant hotel developments in the city.More news: Kory Sterling is TL Network Canada’s new Sales Manager CanadaAlso brand new to Edmonton are The Crash Hotel, a 30-room boutique property located in a historic building built in 1904, and Hyatt Place Downtown, which opened its doors in January. Plus, five new oTENTiks (a cross between a tent and a cabin) have been added to nearby Elk Island National Park, Canada’s largest completely enclosed national park and second only to the Serengeti in numbers of hoofed wildlife.In Calgary, the hugely popular Calgary Stampede, which this year takes place from July 7-16, will be themed after Canada’s 150th anniversary. The city is also gearing up for Beakerhead, an annual celebration of science and art, which in September will transform Calgary’s downtown core into a Canada 150-themed, larger-than-life Snakes and Ladders boardgame.Stampede ParkHeritage Park will showcase Canada’s history, too, with a travelling exhibition of one of its Colonist Cars. It will begin in Halifax’s Pier 21 in September and eventually make its way to Calgary by December as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebration.Other new highlights in Calgary include a permanent lemur exhibit at the Calgary Zoo, which will also debut its first panda exhibit in 2018, and Studio Bell, the permanent home of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, the Songwriter Hall of Fame and the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. As for hotels, the Element Calgary Airport will officially open its doors on March 7, while a new Alt Hotels property is expected to open in late 2018.Visitors to Jasper will find new upgrades at the historic Jasper Downtown Hostel, which has doubled in size and added 33 new beds. Other renovated and upgraded hotels include the 90-year Astonia Hotel, the Chateau Jasper Hotel (to be completed in winter 2017), the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge (to be completed this year), and Pyramid Lake Resort, which will complete a three-year renovation project this fall/winter. Adventure seekers should also note that Rockaboo Mountain Adventures has launched a new Glacier Adventure for summer departures to the Athabasca Glacier.Fairmont Jasper Park LodgeLastly, Banff will debut the Commonwealth Walkway in Banff National Park this September to mark Canada’s anniversary. It will feature bilingual bronze plaques along existing trails that detail Canada’s Commonwealth history. The Park also welcomed 18 new bison, a gift from Elk Island, last month, marking the first time the animal has been at the park in 100 years.More news: Sunwing offers ultimate package deal ahead of YXU flights to SNU, PUJAlso of interest is a $27 million renovation of the Banff Gondola, which includes new restaurants, interactive exhibits, a multi-sensory theatre and a 360-degree rooftop observation deck. The Kananaskis Country Golf Course will be reopening in 2018 after closing due to a major flood in 2013, while the Moose Hotel & Spa in Banff National Park is still basking in the glow of its summer 2016 grand opening.Edmonton, Calgary, Jasper and Banff are all major points of interest, and are already well known among travellers. But according to Bolton, there’s still one thing that would surprise visitors about the province: Sustainable Cuisine. A new crop of chefs is embracing indigenous foods, focusing on what grows in Alberta and how to elevate these ingredients. RGE RD in Edmonton, for example, promotes itself on its website as serving “untamed cuisine”, Canadian-focused dishes that are inspired by “our country’s fields and forests, our mountains and oceans”.RGE RD in EdmontonLong-table dinners and nose-to-table cuisine are becoming increasingly popular among Alberta’s top restaurants. And the timing couldn’t be better – we anticipate many toasts will be made this year to celebrate Canada’s 150th. Salut!

The rise of theleft in Latin America could see reinforcement with a triumph by the Broad Front Party (FA) that would be historic in Costa Rica, and the re-election of the ex-guerrilla Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front in El Salvador in simultaneous elections on Sunday.A polarization of “left versus right,” unprecedented in Costa Rica and repeating itself in El Salvador, has converged in the two elections. Both elections are too close to call and likely will result in runoffs, according to polls.“They have in common the day the elections will take place, and campaigns of ‘fear,’” Roberto Cañas, a political and economic analyst in San Salvador, said. “But there are two lefts, two histories, two countries, two very different candidates.”In Costa Rica, the young lawmaker and environmentalist José María Villalta, 36, of the Broad Front Party, is among the favorites, along with former San José mayor Johnny Araya, 56, from the governing National Liberation Party.“The support of FA is multi-ideological: Villalta channels the discontent, the protest votes, not only against the political system, but also the economic system. That’s where this strong surge from the left originates in Costa Rica,” Jaime Ordóñez, director of the Central American Institute on Governability, said.In El Salvador, the candidate of the governing FMLN, current Vice President Salvador Sánchez Cerén, 69, leads the polls ahead of former capital city mayor Norman Quijano, 67, of the rightist Nationalist Republican Alliance (ARENA).Unlike 2009, when the moderate candidate Mauricio Funes, a former journalist, helped El Salvador’s left win the presidency for the first time in the country’s history, the FMLN has bet on an outsider and ex-guerrilla commander to curb the right’s attempt to regain power.In the Costa Rican elections, the situation is more unpredictable: Two other candidates, one from the right – Otto Guevara – and one from the center-left – Luis Guillermo Solís – follow close behind Araya and Villalta.“If (in Costa Rica) there were only two sides, as in El Salvador, it would be much easier to predict, said Costa Rican political analyst Víctor Ramírez. “The reality is that in Costa Rica there is an atomization.”If no candidate wins a minimum of 50 percent of the vote in El Salvador and 40 percent in Costa Rica, the contests will be decided in runoffs on March 9 and April 4, respectively.Although the two countries’ political philosophies are different, a triumph of the left in Costa Rica and El Salvador would reinforce a trend in Latin America that has yet to dominate in Central America, which has conservative governments in Guatemala, Honduras and Panama.“I don’t think the U.S. is thrilled,” Cañas said. “Neither are members of the Central American business elite, who have globalized their interests and access. They invest in political parties and expect payoffs later.”Two economic models are at odds: the neoliberalism of ARENA and the PLN, and the more statist socialism of the FMLN and the FA that avoids stirring trouble with the U.S., the major trading partner of both countries. In the case of El Salvador, the U.S. is the source of remittances from migrants, who help bolster the country’s economy.“I don’t believe anyone is seeking to deeply change the model,” Cañas said. “Neither the Cuban revolution nor Venezuelan chavismo are coming to these two countries.”In an interview with the AFP, Villalta said, “Costa Rica has its own development tradition of a “Tico-style socialism,” although he said the left has been demonized during the campaign.In Costa Rica, that polarization has brought out comparisons to Cuba, Venezuela or Nicaragua, which the FA has called a “campaign of fear.” For example, the Supreme Elections Tribunal reprimanded businesses that asked their employees not to vote for the “communist” candidate.Villalta’s adversaries have lobbed labels of “communist,” “chavista,” and “friend of Ortega.”“We do not believe that another country’s model can be copied,” Villalta said, adding that Costa Rica should learn from the successes and errors of Latin American leftists and follow its “own path.”In El Salvador, which endured a civil war from 1980-1992, fear campaigning also was a tactic in 2009. But five years of moderate government from the FMLN have maintained a dollarized economy and prevented capital flight.“They were saying that our children were going to be shipped to Cuba and our elderly would be made into soap,” Cañas said of El Salvador’s fear campaign in 2009. “They said that if we had two hens, one would be given to the state. That campaign didn’t work. We’ll see if it does in Costa Rica.” Facebook Comments Related posts:UPDATE: El Salvador ex-guerrilla in presidential vote runoff, narrowly misses victory The real communist threat in Costa Rica Both candidates claim win in Salvadoran presidential runoff Ex-rebel commander favored in El Salvador runoff

As part of the program, I traveled to Cloudbridge Nature Reserve in San Gerardo de Rivas, a 700-acre cloud forest where I often went hiking in search of reptiles and amphibians.To my surprise, I began finding species that had never before been seen in the area, including emerald glass frogs, masked tree frogs and a rare kind of salamander.I was invited to stay at the reserve as a resident biologist for three months, and over those months, I continued to unearth species never before documented in the area, identifying them with the help of scientific tomes and taking their photographs. My dream is to someday find a red-eyed stream frog, which was recently taken off the list of extinct species. But here are some photographs of the creatures I have already stumbled on.

The Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong, and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Secretary General, Le Luong Minh, officially launched the VisitASEAN@50 Golden Celebration tourism campaign during the opening of the ASEAN Tourism Forum (ATF) in Singapore.The campaign promotes the twin objectives of commemorating the 50th anniversary of ASEAN and embracing the ASEAN region as a single and united tourism destination.The VisitASEAN@50 campaign comes at a time when tourism has been a star performer in Southeast Asia, rising from 42 million international arrivals to the region in 2000 to 108 million in 2015, according to numbers provided by the ASEAN Secretariat.Ahead of its launch, ASEAN Tourism Ministers agreed that the objectives of the campaign were to raise tourist arrivals to the region to 121 million by the end of 2017, up from 108 million in 2015. Tourism officials also hope to boost tourism receipts to $83 billion and increase average length of stay to 6-7 days by encouraging tourists to travel to at least two ASEAN countries on each visit.50 special tour packages carefully selected by the 10 member countries of ASEAN are the main draw of the tourism campaign, which is supported by globally recognised companies such as MasterCard and AirAsia.In his speech, Prime Minister Lee called for better connectivity within Southeast Asia and urged fellow member countries not to shy away from ‘less glamorous’ tourism development tasks such as building new infrastructure, enhancing training and reducing red tape. Specifically he said he would like to see ASEAN strengthen air links, boost cruise tourism and develop tourism’s human resource skills.

Vincent, but it was more than usually traumatic according to medical reports, Michel said," he said The account of the meeting was challenged by Sulzberger “My main purpose for accepting the meeting was to raise concerns about the president’s deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous" said the NYT publisher The meeting between the two took place at the White House on 20 July Sulzberger said the meeting was off the record but Trump by tweeting about it had made it on the record "I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful I am far more concerned about his labelling journalists ‘the enemy of the people’ I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence" he said in a lengthy five-paragraph statement "I repeatedly stressed that this is particularly true abroad where the president’s rhetoric is being used by some regimes to justify sweeping crackdowns on journalists" he said Sulzberger said he warned Trump that "it was putting lives at risk undermining the democratic ideals of our nation and that it was eroding one of our country’s greatest exports: a commitment to free speech and a free press" "Throughout the conversation I emphasised that if president Trump like previous presidents was upset with coverage of his administration he was of course free to tell the world" he said "I made clear repeatedly that I was not asking for him to soften his attacks on The Times if he felt our coverage was unfair Instead I implored him to reconsider his broader attacks on journalism which I believe are dangerous and harmful to our country" he said By Sonya Dowsett and Inmaculada Sanz MADRID (Reuters) – Thousands of protesters took to the streets across Spain on Thursday after a court cleared five men of the gang rape of a teenager at the 2016 San Fermin bull-running festival in Pamplona The court in the northern region of Navarra on Thursday convicted the men who had recorded video of the attack on their mobile phones and laughed about the incident afterwards on a Whatsapp group with the lesser crime of sexual abuse The decision drew immediate criticism and outrage Thousands gathered in cities across Spain from Seville to Barcelona and outside the Justice Ministry in Madrid bearing notices reading "I believe you sister" and chanting "It’s not abuse it’s rape" In Madrid men and women packed central streets chanting "Shame Shame" and "’No’ means ‘No’" In Barcelona thousands packed into the central square banging pots and pans and jangling their keys in the air The so-called "Wolf Pack" case had already sparked widespread anger around Spain following concern over increased reports of sex attacks at the annual festival and over the mistreatment of women in general It has also drawn international attention coming at a time of heightened global concern over the sexual abuse of women in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal After a five-month trial held behind closed doors to protect the victim’s identity a judge read out the sentences in the court in the northern region of Navarra The state prosecutor had asked for prison sentences of more than 20 years for each of the men Instead they were given nine-year sentences Under Spanish law the lesser charge of sexual abuse differs from rape in that it does not involve violence or intimidation The charge is used in cases of sexual activity between underage partners or those seen not capable of giving permission for sexual contact such as those who are severely handicapped or under the influence of drugs or drink Politicians across the political spectrum condemned the ruling "As a citizen and as a father I find it hard to understand this sentence" tweeted Albert Rivera head of market-friendly political party Ciudadanos "It seems to be saying to victims that if you don’t take on five thugs double your size putting your life at risk it’s not rape" said Pablo Iglesias leader of left-wing Podemos STOLEN PHONE The regional government of Navarra where the San Fermin festival takes place will appeal the ruling a regional government spokeswoman said The five men including a former policeman and a former soldier and the victim who was 18 at the time of the incident were not present in court The men dubbed by Spanish media "The Wolf Pack" after the name of their Whatsapp group have been held in custody since July 2016 The judge who did not give the reasoning behind the sentence also ordered the men to pay the victim 50000 euros ($60825) in compensation The ruling can be appealed in Spain’s Supreme Court The incident took place in the lobby of a building in the early hours of the morning at the San Fermin festival which brings more than one million people to Pamplona for the nine-day-long festival in July One of the men stole the woman’s mobile phone following the attack leaving her with no means of contacting the friend with whom she had come to the festival She was found crying on a bench by a couple who rang the police when she said she had been sexually assaulted She made a statement to the police describing the five men who were later arrested Fragments of video from the men’s mobile phones taken at the scene were used as evidence in the trial alongside witness accounts and biological tests The defence team argued the incident was a case of consensual group sex The Running of the Bulls involves hundreds of people dressed in white shirts and red neckerchiefs running down narrow streets in front of fighting bulls before ending in the city’s bull-ring where bullfights take place in the afternoon The festival is just as famous for the drinking and revelry on the sidelines with huge street parties processions and firework displays The event draws thousands of tourists from all over the world Thousands of people took to the streets two years ago to protest against sexual assault at the festival and the Pamplona council has mounted a campaign against sexual harassment in recent years increasing policing

Poland and the Czech Republic over their refusal to accept quotas for asylum seekers. It was finally Cobie Smulders who got the answer correct. and afterwards Evans couldnt contain his surprise This article originally appeared on EWcom Contact us at editors@timecomOn Thursday night ABC debuts the latest of their Shonda Rhimes and Rhimes-adjacent dramas The Catch (Rhimes did not create the series but serves as executive producer along with longtime associate Betsy Beers) The show represents the most meaningful failing in memory of Rhimes’s usually razor-sharp casting There’s a lot going against The Catch in its first hour but it fails firstand most fundamentallyon the basis of its misbegotten central couple both of whom are performing in shows different than this one Here LA private investigator Alice Vaughan is played by Mireille Enos the actress from The Killing whose grimly determined turn as fundamentalist twins on Big Love was one of my favorite supporting performances of its era Enos has a great deal to recommend her as a performer but “levity” is notor at least not on so far on The Catchin her toolkit Which is too bad because the pilot of The Catch makes clear the show will rise or fall on its breeziness It less resembles ABC’s Rhimes dramas like Scandal or How to Get Away With Murder than it does the cutesy summer shows the USA Network has only recently begun to move away from The proudly unattractive fractal-skyline effects that transition us between scenes and the writing indicate that this is meant to be a silly delight “This is the fun part” Enos murmurs zip-cuffing a perp before turning him over to the authorities Anyone who barely makes out the word “fun” may well ask themselves: Is it All gritty intensity Enos is asked to sell a caper but the inciting incidenther husband turns out to be a con artist who disappears taking her money with himis played less as melodrama than as farce “I will make every trace of you disappear” one of her husband’s allies tells her before his disappearing act “DNA fingerprints all of itgone Like Christopher Hall never existed Which he never did Right” That this exchange goes on between three and four sentences longer than it needs to isn’t the only problem The bigger issue is that Christopher Hall played by Peter Krause responds to pure goofiness as though he’s the tormented hero in the penultimate scene of a DC Comics film This isn’t to say that great actors cannot elevate shoddy material; that happens on prime-time every night of the week But it’s puzzling that The Catch in its very early going Rhimes’s most outright light-hearted show yet bears the weight of two stars’ baggage Enos and Six Feet Under‘s Krause are both locked into personae and styles of acting that put a dark cloud over The Catch‘s blue sky When Krause steps out of the scissor doors of a Lamborghini Aventador in his first appearance on the show he should look sexily insouciant engaged in the glamour of the chase Instead he just looks bummed out Great casting has saved or at least prolonged various Rhimes shows Viola Davis’s work on How to Get Away With Murder is by far the most interesting thing on that series; Kerry Washington’s chemistry with Tony Goldwyn turned Scandal‘s sometimes repetitive love plot over the first several seasons into must-see stuff Here Enos and Krause’s chemistry is less that of a couple obsessed with each other first in love and then in deception (as we’re told) but that of two melancholy souls Their de rigeur sex scene feels almost embarrassing to watch Perhaps their dark energies would provide great stuff for a show with a less sassy attitude towards law enforcement but here it’s just confusing It’s hard to apply blame here: The series underwent both recasting of the Krause role and a full-on reshoot of the pilot And it’s easy to imagine that the show will find its way away from the dopey potboiler its script wants it to be and into something in line with Krause’s and Enos’s mutual angst But don’t blame audiences if they can’t stick around quite that long Contact us at editors@timecomDemocrats spied an early opportunity this week to divide President-elect Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans on two sleeper issues previewing a tactic the party could use next year to broaden its popular appeal Before floor debates in the Senate on Tuesday Democrats called for long-term funding for retired coal miners health benefits and making permanent "Buy America" provisions in a water infrastructure bill that would require the government to only fund projects that use American-made steel Both are working class-focused issues that target the heart of Donald Trumps support in coal country and in steelmaking counties that helped swing the election "We challenge the President-elect to follow through on his promise to Americas working families" incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters on Tuesday afternoon "Stand with Democrats in supporting steelworkers and miners across the country Tell the Republicans to reverse course" Neither water infrastructure nor miners health are glamorous big-ticket items But on both Republicans in Congress are at odds with the ethos if not the letter of Trumps campaign promises to protect American mining and manufacturing Republicans in the House led by Speaker Paul Ryan removed a provision from the Water Resources Development Actan infrastructure spending bill on the countrys waterwaysthat would require using American-made steel Republicans have said in the past they believed the provision would ultimately direct federal funding to some domestic companies and not others Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell meanwhile has called for temporary funding for miners health benefits as part of a continuing resolution or short-term government funding mechanism instead of a long-term fix "What I recommended to the House was miners’ healthcare for the duration of the CR [continuing resolution] and I’m hopeful optimistic that will be part of the CR when it comes over from the House” Democrats call the Republicans positions inadequate saying they want a long-term fix in the form of legislation called the Miners Protection Act Democratic Sen Joe Manchin of West Virginia along with his Republican counterpart Sen Shelley Moore Capito and a couple dozen others called on the legislation to pass by the end of 2016 in order to address shortages in the miners health funds "It sounds like Mitch McConnell is at war with the coal miners" said Democratic Sen Dick Durbin of Illinois Trump campaigned heavily on protecting coal miners which helped him win states like West Virginia Kentucky and Ohio by large margins While McConnells proposal would extend a decades-old miners’ healthcare fund the solution is not the long-term fix Democrats and some Republicans are calling for Republicans said they wanted to make sure miners got benefits “We’re trying our best to meet those needs” said Rep Hal Rogers of Kentucky chairman of the House Appropriations Committee “Obviously I want to see us take care of those miners as best we can considering the circumstances” The water infrastructure bill would require government projects to use American-made steel a provision that is a major boon for steelmakers who have hemorrhaged production to China and Turkey "By removing my Buy America standard Speaker Ryan and House Republicans are embracing the status-quo in Washington This is a failure by House leadership to make a solid commitment to American manufacturers and workers" Democratic Sen Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin who pushed for the provision said in a statement As Democrats struggle to find their footing after a disastrous election many in the party have called for measures to build support among working class voters in the so-called Rust Belt states For Democrats it is less a change it reflects less a change in policy than a change in messaging as they seek to highlight differences between the President-elect and his party and seek to reclaim their title as the party of the working class Democrats lost by significant margins in old manufacturing states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania and faced surprise defeats in Michigan and Wisconsin Over the next year they will seek to make back their losses in part by muddying the Republicans’ and Trump’s message “We’re beginning to see the fault lines emerge the divisions that will dominate Washington next year” said Schumer “Only this time instead of the fault lines falling between Democrats and Republicans theyre falling between the President and his own party” Contact us at editors@timecom | EU Data Subject RequestsOn screen, Addressing a press conference separately, Fantastic Beasts will open in theaters Nov.

does not matter if it is 600 or 6 lakh such women when will you give it At the outset the government played with fire on the case of disallowing those who soughtpremature retirement from the benefits of OROP The fact is that if they have worked for 20 years as officers and 15 years as soldiers the subject should be closed Nobody can disallow them they have earned it Either Parliament should change the years of service because as things stand the government is on very shaky ground Indeed the issue of five-year reviews as opposed to two years has become secondary to this aspect and the word ‘premature’ brings with it a certain cowardly negative connotation like the individual ran away This is dramatically untrue After 20 years an officer has earned his pension right and has to be accommodated by the OROP Many years ago I had written an article calling for it to be changed to ‘early retirement’ as against ‘premature’ If there is a certain acceptance of the five-year review in public the removal of officers who leave the forces after their lower limit of service from the list will cause huge heartburn and it is against the legal ambit An average soldier is 30-odd years old when he hangs up his uniform Where does he go Without the introduction of this ‘premature’ retirement clause which came out of the blue it seemed like the veterans had very little to complain about and that they would have lost ground (see my earlier report) But has the government given a lot without giving anything Has it covered itself with glory but left the servicemen former and current reasonably bewildered with the figure and the doublespeak Indeed the ball has been kicked deep into Jantar Mantar and Major-General Satbir Singh and his team have a prickly pear to grasp that goes behind Parriker’s patronising praise I think the five points that deserve answers are vital to ending what could become a stiffer impasse: Will the government withdraw the order to leave premature retirees in the cold What is the hesitancy to having a wider panel than only a judge ignorant of military priorities When will the money start flowing Has the government accepted the OROP in toto or merely the concept Why use the word ‘concept’ What exactly is the reason to differentiate between the armed forces and the IAS who get their annual pension review At this moment it is much of a muchness and unless there is a time given for when the turnstiles begin to click the rest is all chatter smoke and mirrors Hyderabad:About 70 percent women who perceive sexual harassment at workplace

a month and a half This is the first time in recent memory that a party other than the CPM as part of a ruling Left Front is the incumbent party This is also the first time in recent history that the Congress and the Left parties after having long been rivals have cobbled together a front against the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) Third this is the first election that is witnessing a substantial increase in the number of young candidates from all sides and a major part of the turf war is being played out in the new-found argot of social media Finally the polls have been marked by a major financial scam public outcry over the wreckage of a flyover and a sticky sting operation all targeted at the ruling TMC Mamata Banerjee the belligerent megalomaniac leader of the TMC is not known for either her subtleties or her insights She does not run any outdated politburo to advise her she encourages no dissent or adverse opinion remains ensconced in a small group of men who offer her ritualistic and uninhibited sycophancy She has similarly come to expect absolute and ingratiating gobbledygook from the bureaucracy and administration Her government seems to have expedited evident corruption fed by the noisy bluster of performance reduced the police to a puppet play decimated liberal institutions and bankrupted the economy But importantly none of these charges are different from a list that would have defined the CPM five years ago Notwithstanding the hyperventilation that accompanies the TMC’s grandstanding about change (poriborton) what was in fact unleashed in 2011 was a mirror image of the CPM’s governing logic at least of the last 10 years of its 34-year rule The CPM was no less paternalistic nepotistic and corrupt It was no less a believer in the violent makeover of liberal institutions Electoral violence and rigging are similarly a Left legacy — the TMC merely adding a degree of unrepentant triumphalism to this illegitmate show of power The CPI(M) was no more attentive to questions of caste and poverty pollution and ecology heritage and urban planning public health and education If at all the TMC has actually exhibited some will to boost public spending As for the economy the state has a miraculous capacity of surviving on little or zero investment for years So much for the continuities As far as the shifts are concerned there are a few The last five years have seen an astonishing rise in social media activism and in the participation of the youth in mobilising public opinion Both these trends will adversely affect the incumbent And here the TMC’s brash disregard for opinion other than its own something that the apparatchiks of the CPM carried out in secrecy is likely to play a part in its erosion of support The second shift is the substantive rise of the BJP in pockets which have traditionally frolicked with rightist sentiments either in Kolkata or in the industrial belts of the state It is in the last bit that the long-term consequence of this election might be felt If the TMC returns to power both the Left and the Congress will have to look into their differences or go back to their individual constituencies The seat understanding is anyway a matter of electoral opportunism So what if the TMC loses It is difficult to say what kind of government West Bengal will gain but it can be safely prophesied that the loss will dismember the TMC Most of its cadres and leaders have come together to exploit the spoils of power Losing will see them disband Such a decline of the TMC is going to be traction for the presently bloodless BJP The BJP is a party which can play havoc with the tightrope ethnic and religious sentiments in a border state like West Bengal and it will do every mischief in its arsenal to gain a foothold in the void left by the decimation of the TMC The West Bengal electorate will do well to consider this possibility when they go out to vote West Bengal chequered as its history is with

has to go through DBT That would be the law All states agree on that" The minister also made it clear to states that any tariff decided after the bid has to be adopted and power purchase agreements have to obeyed because that is the law About Saubhagya scheme he said: "We would provide electricity connection to 4 crore families by December 2018 We are running a public awareness campaign to tell people that they are not required to go anywhere and pay a single rupee for getting electricity connection We would organise camps to do that" He also said after March 2019 the loss will be capped at

likely to be overdue and have more complicated birthsa new study has claimed Researchers at Liverpool University found that women who were overweight or obese before they conceived were more likely to have a longer pregnancyneed to have labour induced artificially and to go on to require caesarean section births The studypublished in the ‘British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology’examined the records of almost 30000 women who gave birth over four years Three in 10 obese women were overduedefined as still pregnant ten days after their due datecompared with around two in ten of healthy weight women More than a third of obese women had their labour inducedcompared with just over a quarter of normal weight womenthe study found In additionalmost three in 10 obese women had an induction of labour which later resulted in a caesarean delivery compared to less than two in ten normal weight women Howevermore than seven in 10 obese women still gave birth naturally and the rates of complications in labour and for the baby were the same as in normal weight womenthe study found Lead author Dr Sarah Arrowsmith said: “Maternal obesity has become one of the most commonly occurring risk factors in obstetric practice including greater risk of prolonged pregnancy “The importance of this research is that it investigates delivery outcomes for women who are obese with prolonged gestation and receiving labour induction “The fact that the majority of obese women did have a vaginal deliverywith labour complications being largely comparable to normal weight womensuggests that induction of labour in obese women with prolonged pregnancy is a safe method for managing these difficult pregnancies “Our findings were somewhat unexpectedgiven the well-reported complications surrounding obesity in pregnancybut were clinically reassuring Our current research is focused towards underlying causes of prolonged pregnancywhich can affect up to 10 per cent of womenas currently
