Rotary International launches $100 million challenge to Rotary Clubs to end polio

first_imgRotary International launches $100 million challenge to Rotary Clubs to end polio In the UK, Allan Jagger, President of Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland, is a member of the new Rotary $100 Million Challenge Committee. He said: “The polio eradication grant is one of the largest challenge grants ever given by the Gates Foundation and the largest grant received by Rotary in its 102-year history. Polio eradication has been Rotary’s top priority since 1985. Since then, Rotary has contributed $633 million to the eradication effort. The extraordinary dedication of Rotary members has played a critical role in bringing polio to the brink of eradication. I urge all Rotary Clubs in Great Britain and Ireland to support this initiative.” Dr Robert S Scott, trustee chair of the Rotary Foundation explained: “Each Rotary club is being asked to contribute at least $1,000 annually to the challenge for the next three years. Howard Lake | 23 February 2008 | News Advertisement “If you consider there are nearly 33,000 clubs in the world, their combined fundraising efforts would result in almost the full matching amount of $100 million. The $200 million that will be generated will be a vital catalyst in support of polio eradication.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis www.ribi.org About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Police attack demonstrators in India

first_imgWest Bengal police attack SUCI(C) activistsUnder the normal rules of demonstrations of workers and poor people in Kolkata, India, people are allowed legal protests. Even “illegal” actions, such as peaceful civil disobedience mobilizations, are allowed in a stipulated area without police attack.But when 30,000 people, young and old, men and women, were marching for workers and peasants’ demands on Feb. 5 in this West Bengal city, the police changed the rules at the last minute, and the streets of this densely populated city ran with the blood of the demonstrators. Making a vicious attack on them, police sent 35 people to the hospital.The confrontation between the demonstrators mobilized by the Socialist Unity Center of India (Communist) and the rightist government has set off a series of protests and mobilizations. The SUCI(C) organization and its supporters have earned the solidarity of workers’ organizations around the world by standing strong against the attack.According to a SUCI(C) news release, the group was marching to promote 18-point demands that included bringing down rising prices, withdrawal of the anti-peasant Land Acquisition Bill, reduction of prices of 108 essential medicines, fair prices for the peasants, banning commercialization of education, lowering price rates for power, adoption of appropriate measures to stop growing crimes against women, etc. These are all demands to improve the lives of the poor in the West Bengal state.The release reported: “The 30,000-strong rally began its journey from College Square in central Kolkata towards Rani Rashmoni Road in Esplanade, the heart of the city. There were the protesters, the leaders and cadres of the Party, the supporters, sympathizers, periphery and the vast masses of common people, peasants and their families from the villages, workers from the industrial belts, middle class from the towns, students, youth, men, women, children with their parents, the old with their sons, daughters, relatives and neighbours. It was a vast mass, a surging wave of people effervescent yet resolute in fighting for their cause. Common people of Kolkata, in their turn, did not remain mere bystanders; they thronged on both sides of the street.”The police used long batons known as lathi and targeted the heads and necks of the demonstrators, apparently trying to do as much damage to the people as possible. No one was arrested, but many were injured. A SUCI(C) volunteer lost one eye, one student can’t open one eye, another student’s hand has been fractured and many more have broken limbs. Despite the relentless attack, the demonstrators fought to hold their ground and make their demands known.SUCI(C) announced: “News of this massive rally, police atrocity, and injury of the demonstrators spread rapidly throughout the state” and “in the next two months, the Party would organize deputations, rallies, squatting, block level mass law violation, road blockades and such other forms of movement and finally there will be a higher program like encircling Governor House in Kolkata.” nFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Credit: Arya Khosravi and Wesley McBride/CaltechResearch Update: Battling Infection With MicrobesA relationship between gut bacteria and blood cell development helps the immune system fight infection, Caltech researchers say.The human relationship with microbial life is complicated. At almost any supermarket, you can pick up both antibacterial soap and probiotic yogurt during the same shopping trip. Although there are types of bacteria that can make us sick, Caltech professor of biology and biological engineering Sarkis Mazmanian and his team are most interested in the thousands of other bacteria—many already living inside our bodies—that actually keep us healthy. His past work in mice has shown that restoring populations of beneficial bacteria can help alleviate the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, and even autism. Now, he and his team have found that these good bugs might also prepare the immune cells in our blood to fight infections from harmful bacteria.In the recent study, published on March 12 in the journal Cell Host & Microbe, the researchers found that beneficial gut bacteria were necessary for the development of innate immune cells—specialized types of white blood cells that serve as the body’s first line of defense against invading pathogens.In addition to circulating in the blood, reserve stores of immune cells are also kept in the spleen and in the bone marrow. When the researchers looked at the immune cell populations in these areas in so-called germ-free mice, born without gut bacteria, and in healthy mice with a normal population of microbes in the gut, they found that germ-free mice had fewer immune cells—specifically macrophages, monocytes, and neutrophils—than healthy mice.Germ-free mice also had fewer granulocyte and monocyte progenitor cells, stemlike cells that can eventually differentiate into a few types of mature immune cells. And the innate immune cells that were in the spleen were defective—never fully reaching the proportions found in healthy mice with a diverse population of gut microbes.“It’s interesting to see that these microbes are having an immune effect beyond where they live in the gut,” says Arya Khosravi, a graduate student in Mazmanian’s lab, and first author on the recent study. “They’re affecting places like your blood, spleen, and bone marrow—places where there shouldn’t be any bacteria.”Khosravi and his colleagues next wanted to see if the reduction in immune cells in the blood would make the germ-free mice less able to fight off an infection by the harmful bacterium Listeria monocytogenes—a well-studied human pathogen often used to study immune responses in mice. While the healthy mice were able to bounce back after being injected with Listeria, the infection was fatal to germ-free mice. When gut microbes that would normally be present were introduced into germ-free mice, the immune cell population increased and the mice were able to survive the Listeria infection.The researchers also gave injections of Listeria to healthy mice after those mice were dosed with broad-spectrum antibiotics that killed off both harmful and beneficial bacteria. Interestingly, these mice also had trouble fighting the Listeria infection. “We didn’t look at clinical data in this study, but we hypothesize that this might also happen in the clinic,” says Mazmanian. “For example, when patients are put on antibiotics for something like hip surgery, are you damaging their gut microbe population and making them more susceptible to an infection that had nothing to do with their hip surgery?”More importantly, the research also suggests that a healthy population of gut microbes can actually provide a preventative alternative to antibiotics, Khosravi says. “Today there are more and more antibiotic resistant superbugs out there, and we’re running out of ways to treat them. Limiting our susceptibility to infection could be a good protective strategy.”These results appear in a paper titled “Gut Microbiota Promote Hematopoiesis to Control Bacterial Infection.” Top of the News Business News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Now the White House is threatening to veto that bill as well as another piece of legislation that would allow loans in portfolio to qualify for an exemption under the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)’s qualified mortgage (QM) rule. Both bills passed in the House on Wednesday.Yellen wrote a letter to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday exhorting them to reject H.R. 3189, known as the Fed Oversight Reform and Modernization (FORM) Act, which passed in the House on Wednesday with bipartisan support with a vote of 241 to 185. The bill passed in the House Financial Services Committee by a 33-25 vote on July 29.The FORM Act requires the Fed to transparently communicate its monetary policy decisions to the American people by requiring the Fed to generate a monetary policy strategy of its own choosing, in order to provide the American people with more transparency about the factors that lead to the Fed’s monetary decisions. The Act would also eliminate the restrictions on the Government Accountability Office’s ability to audit the Fed, allowing the GAO to conduct an audit of the Fed anytime there is a policy change. The bill is sponsored by Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Michigan), who is the House Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee Chairman.“Subjecting the Federal Reserve’s exercise of Monetary policy authority to audits based on political whims of members of the Congress—of either party—threatens one of the central pillars of the Nation’s financial system and economy, and would almost certainly have negative impacts on the Federal Reserve’s work to promote price stability and full employment,” the White House said in its Statement of Administration Policy released this week. “H.R. 3189 also would impose numerous, burdensome requirements for the Federal Reserve Board rulemaking authorities, including the imposition of a duplicative requirement that the Federal Reserve Board undertake a proscriptive cost-benefit analysis and a post-adoption impact assessment when promulgating rules.”The White House concluded the statement by saying, “If the President were presented with H.R. 3189, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.”“If the President were presented with H.R. 3189, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill.”The White HouseH.R. 1210, known as the Portfolio Lending and Mortgage Access Act, passed in the House on Wednesday with bipartisan support by a 255 to 174 vote. The bill is sponsored by Rep. Andy Barr (R-Kentucky) and will provide a common sense, flexible approach that allows residential mortgage loans held in portfolio to qualify for a safe harbor equivalent to that of the CFPB’s Qualified Mortgage rule. H.R. 1210 will allow community banks to meet the credit demands of consumers, while incentivizing that banks and credit unions ensure the borrower can meet the monthly obligations of a mortgage.“It should not be the job of Congress or unelected and unaccountable Washington regulators to decide who gets a mortgage and who does not, or to force community banks and credit unions to function like regulated utilities, issuing only plain-vanilla mortgages rubber-stamped in Washington,” House Financial Services Committee Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) said. “This common sense legislation recognizes that the most effective way to ensure that a borrower has the ability to repay is not a one-size-fits-all, top-down regulation from Washington that mandates the terms of loans and underwriting practices.”The White House was critical of H.R. 1210, saying that it would “undermine critical consumer protections by exempting all depository financial institutions, large and small, from QM standards—including very basic standards like verifying a consumer’s income—as long as the mortgage loans in question are held in portfolio by the institution.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: CFPB Federal Reseve H.R. 1210 H.R. 3189 Qualified Mortgage Rule White House CFPB Federal Reseve H.R. 1210 H.R. 3189 Qualified Mortgage Rule White House 2015-11-18 Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Fed Reform, Mortgage Access Bills Under Threat of Veto from the White House Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agolast_img read more

In the said news item, some allegations were levelled against the Chief Minister of the state.Arguments put forth by the PartiesOn behalf of the applicant, it was argued that he has not been even named in the FIR; he has been in custody for 35 days now; the allegations in the FIR do not make out a prima-facie case against him; out of two persons named in the FIR one, namely, Umesh Sharma who had earlier sought protection from the Court, which has been provided.On behalf of the State it was argued that, in fact, the custodial interrogation of the applicant is necessary. It was further argued that this is the 3rd time, an attempt has been made to de-stabilise the Government. There were two FIRs lodged earlier in the year 2018, one in the State of Uttarakhand and another in the State of Jharkhand.The Observations of the CourtThe court observed that the FIR was lodged on 31st July 2020 at 4:20 PM and the applicant was arrested at 11:00 PM the same night. The court further raised some questions:-“Are there any specific averments in the FIR against the applicant? Are there any specific allegations about forgery against the applicant? And if so, what are those? Which documents were forged? Which forged documents were used as genuine?”The court further remarked,”What troubles more is as to how Section 124-A IPC is added? Even if for the sake of arguments, it is admitted that some allegations were levelled against some high functionary, does it per se amount to sedition, which is punishable under Section 124-A IPC? Why was the State in such haste? Is it a cruel hand of the State, which is running over? Many questions would perhaps also require an answer in this bail.” (emphasis supplied)Therefore, the court asked the State to file a counter affidavit within two weeks. It was directed that specifically some following answers should be given in the counter affidavit.1. Is it true that before the filing of FIR in the instant case, an application was given to the police by the informant? If so, when and where is that application? And under what provision of law, this application is taken?2. Is it true that on the earlier application of the informant some inquiry was conducted and if so, under what provision of Law and who has conducted it? Where is that enquiry report, let it be filed along with the counter-affidavit.3. Is it true that the result of that enquiry was given to the informant? If so, when did he apply for it and under what provision of law he was given it?The court further observed that it is also required to be deliberated as to which one is the FIR in the instant case; the earlier application given by the informant or the instant application which the State has treated as FIR?The Court granted interim bail to the applicant subject to his furnishing a personal bond of Rs. 10,000/- only. He will remain on interim bail till the instant bail application is decided.The matter has been listed on the 18th of September, 2020 for further hearing.Case Details:Case Title: Rajesh Sharma v.

The order was passed by Single Bench of Justice Suneet Kumar, after it was informed that there was a change in circumstances for moving the second bail application inasmuch as a prosecution witness of the CBI had demolished the agency’s case. Senior Advocate Anoop Trivedi, appearing for the Applicant, pointed out that whereas the CBI claimed to have apprehended the Applicant, Ranveer Singh, in a trap case at Ghaziabad, the CBI’s witness had testified that the Applicant was arrested at his hotel in Delhi. It was thus urged that the Applicant is innocent and had been falsely implicated in the instant case. The Court noted that the counsel for State, Sanjay Kumar Yadav, could not dispute the aforesaid facts and accordingly, without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case, allowed Singh’s bail plea. “Without expressing any opinion on the merits of the case and considering the nature of accusation and the severity of punishment in case of conviction and the nature of supporting evidence, reasonable apprehension of tampering of the witnesses and prima facie satisfaction of the Court in support of the charge, the applicant is entitled to be released on bail in this case,” the Bench ordered. The YEIDA land scam was allegedly conducted by former CEO of the authority, along with 20 other accused. It is alleged that ahead of land acquisition proceedings for the purpose of the expressway, certain YEIDA officials and associates acquired 57 hectares of land in seven villages of Mathura, at cheaper rates, through benami transactions. Later, allegedly, the YEIDA acquired these lands at more than two times the original rates. Investigation in the matter was later handed over to the CBI which booked one VS Rathore, Inspector in the anti-corruption branch in Ghaziabad; Sunil Dutt, ASI of CBI Academy, Ghaziabad; and tehsildar Ranveer Singh over the scam. The agency also booked some unknown officials of the UP Police and some other unidentified persons. They are accused of a Criminal Conspiracy under Section 120B of IPC, and for offences under Sections 7 (Offence relating to public servant being bribed), 7A (Taking undue advantage to influence public servant by corrupt or illegal means or by exercise of personal influence) and 8 (Offence relating to bribing of a public servant) of the Prevention of Corruption Act.Picture Courtesy: Indian Express Click Here To Download Order Read Order Next Storylast_img read more

She had eloped from her home due to the lack of such support. In the hearing before the Court today, after interacting with the girl privately, she was also made to interact on the Court’s platform with her parents.After the private interaction, the court said that the girl had left from her home of her own accord due to a non-conducive environment for studying, she didn’t wish to return there for the same reason.However, the girl changed her mind after her interaction with her parents in the court’s presence, and said that she was ready to return provided they would support her education her.Her parents assured the Court that they would not scold or taunt her for whatever has transpired. They have also ensured that they will not force her to marry any other person whom she would not like to marry otherwiseThe court was hearing a habeas corpus petition, and in a previous hearing had directed the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit (AHTU) of Delhi Police’s Crime Branch to trace the girl. The court had also expressed shock that no FIR had been registered in the case despite a complaint by the parents about their daughter having gone missing.As per the father’s allegation, one Syed Mustafa, a laborer had removed his daughter, an engineer, from their residence and on the same day took her to Kolkata by train. He suspected that it had been carried out in the manner of an organized crime.However, the girl denied this story and said that she had gone with the said Mustafa of her own free volition, having been disturbed by constant bickerings at her house. The state confirmed this stand and added that a Nikaahnama had also been produced, though the same could not be verified till date.The police had submitted that they had received a nikaahnama of the couple sent by post. The court had then expressed shock at the police’s failure to register an FIR on the bald statement of an unverified marriage, and directed for the girl to be traced and kept in a Nari Niketan for 4 days before being produced before it for verification of statements alleged to have been voluntarily made by her.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
