Ethical adventures the world over

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T Costa Rica Top ten ethical destinations 2013 revealed in survey.center_img Travellers wishing to visit countries that support environmental protection, human rights and social welfare need look no further than Ethical Traveler’s top ten ethical destinations 2013.Coinciding with International Human Rights Day, Ethical Traveler released its annual survey of the world’s most ethical tourism hotspots that combine best practices with superb scenic and cultural attractions.The select nations were evaluated across a range of criteria covering ecosystem support, political rights, women’s equality, commitment to LGBT rights, press freedom, natural and cultural attractions and for the first time, terrestrial and marine area protection.   The top ten ethical destinations 2013 were; Barbados, Cape Verde, Costa Rica, Ghana, Latvia, Lithuania, Mauritius, Palau, Samoa and Uruguay. “They’re doing a great job showing the world that you can have a successful tourism industry along with sustainability and social justice,” Ethical Traveler executive director Jeff Greenwald said.“Every dollar we spend is a statement about which countries and governments we choose to support.” Ethical Traveler report co-author Christy Hoover outlined the reasoning behind some of the selections.“Ghana maintains a high degree of freedom of the press, has a stable democracy which just re-elected a pro-environment President; about 15 percent of its territory is environmentally protected in some form,” Ms Hoover said.“Latvia is well-rated for human rights and press freedom; it was also the most-improved country on the Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) Environmental Performance Index (EPI).“In Uruguay, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights and women’s rights are among the best in the region.”last_img read more

The goal of a defense is to stop the opposing team

first_imgThe goal of a defense is to stop the opposing team from advancing the ball, and ultimately from scoring.While the job of stopping the offense rests on the defense as a whole, it is up to specific individuals to make tackles on players.As is the case in all walks of life, some are better at it than others. Footballoutsiders.com took the time to calculate the number of tackles on passing plays as well as the number of “stops” for players during the 2010 season.For those unaware, Football Outsiders defines a stop as: Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation The total number of plays by a defensive player that prevent a successful play by the offense, defined as 45% of needed yards on first down, 60% of needed yards on second down, and 100% of needed yards on third or fourth down. In general, “plays” refers to tackles, passes defensed, fumbles forced, or interceptions. The exception is when discussing pass defense data from the FO game charting project, in which case “plays” refers to all charted passes with the given player as the listed defender.Arizona Cardinals cornerback Michael Adams finished the year with a 47-percent stop rate, which ranked second among corners in the NFL last season.Safety Adrian Wilson and linebacker Paris Lenon were also among the league leaders at their respective positions.Wilson was tenth among all safeties, while Lenon was second among linebackers in the NFL and first among NFC linebackers.

GM Steve Keim and coach Bruce Arians struck a nice

first_img GM Steve Keim and coach Bruce Arians struck a nice balance between adding players who could vault a 10-win team over the playoff hump while finding others who should be cornerstones immediately or eventually. Keim badly needed a left tackle for immobile QB Carson Palmer and signed young Jared Veldheer for less than top dollar. Veteran Antonio Cromartie and first rounder Deone Bucannon bolster a secondary that should be formidable once injured S Tyrann Mathieu is ready. The rest of the NFC West also earned high marks. The Seattle Seahawks came in first with an “A-” followed by the St. Louis Rams who earned a “B+” while the San Francisco 49ers rounded out the bottom of the group with a “C+.”While Cardinals fans have to appreciate the praise and seeing the team rank above the 49ers, it’s still all talk at this point. Now it’s up to the newly acquired talent to prove themselves on the field in order to push Arizona into the playoffs for the first time since 2009. The NFL offseason is a time for teams to correct the problems from the previous season. Each coach and general manager must work together to fill voids on both sides of the ball with a combination of draft picks, trades and free agent pickups, while also letting go of the right players in order to stay under the salary cap. According to Nate Davis of USA Today, the Arizona Cardinals did all of this successfully and passed the 2014 NFL offseason with a “B,” tied for third with the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins amongst all teams in the NFC.

No need for high rise buildings in Paphos district

first_imgAfter it was revealed this week that Paphos municipality has received ten applications for high-rise buildings, a 500-strong group Movement to Save Paphos says there is no need for such construction in the district and an expert body should be formed to offer proper advice before it is too late.According to Antonis Trakkides, a Geroskipou councillor and member of Movement to Save Paphos, high-rise buildings are not the way forward for Paphos.“We can see how so many people have reacted in Limassol, and now this ‘new fruit’ has spread to Paphos,” he told the Sunday Mail. “There are already three approved in Geroskipou, and 10 applications in Paphos town and day by day they are increasing.”On Tuesday, Paphos municipality announced – for reasons of transparency – that it has received 10 applications for the construction of high-rise buildings of between eight and 20 floors in areas such as Kato Paphos and Anavargos.Mayor of Paphos Phedonas Phedonos spoke of the pros and cons of such constructions, saying they could become a landmark for a city and yield multiple benefits but also negatively impact the environment and obstruct views and visibility.“We are so quick to start something new and it’s only afterwards, when it’s too late that we realise what we have done was not the best,” Trakkides said.“It will be similar to Spain, tall buildings and empty beaches.”The Geroskipou beachHe said that he is particularly concerned about Geroskipou, as it has obvious attractions for investors with its swathes of unspoilt, potential building land by the sea.“We don’t want huge skyscrapers along the coast. The entire council, apart from me, voted in favour of these buildings.”He was referring to the three licences for tall buildings approved by the council.The first licence is for more than one building and covers Eden city, the controversial €3.4 billion planned development by Hungarian investor Sandor Kenyeres. The licence covers the construction of an artificial ‘luxury lifestyle’ island, a university, five-star hotel-resorts, multi-floor towers, medical centre, event and conference facilities and a marina.The company was granted a town planning permit to proceed with the construction of the five-star, 221 room Peninsula Hotel Resort and two housing blocks of 12 storeys and 122 apartments on church-owned land.The developers had wanted permission to build 14 floors but it was vetoed due to being on the flight path.The other two licences granted are for further high-rises in Geroskipou, one for a 12-storey building, the other for 10 floors.Mayor of Geroskipou Michalis Pavlides told the Sunday Mail that the licence for the Hungarian development came with a proviso of 23 stipulations.These included permits from the environment and archaeological departments, the creation of a parking area and the environment enhancement of the area.“We did the best we could and I believe the investors now have everything in place and work will get underway on this project in the winter,” he said.Although he was among those who voted in favour of the licences, he said he believed they were enough for the area.Like Trakkides, he said he was concerned about long-term planning and favours bringing in specialist consultants from abroad to carry out the necessary studies and examinations and make recommendations.Proper town planning guidelines are needed, he said, as are new laws.“We don’t have any such people here and we need experts,” he said.“In Cyprus, unfortunately, they decide to build anything, anywhere. There should be specific laws and guidelines, which there currently are not, and the climate of each area should be examined. Taller buildings create a different environment which is not suitable for most places in Cyprus.”One of the planned skyscrapers in LimassolThe mayor noted that you only have to look at what’s happened in Limassol to see that, as the buildings are “in the wrong place”.“We are not Dubai,” he said.The Limassol skyline has seen a rapid alteration in recent years, with many tall buildings being constructed along its coastline.In the first three months of this year alone, the government issued building permits for 25 high-rise buildings, most of them in Limassol. Sixty more applications are pending.Five more high-rise towers are set to be built in the city this year alone.In February, the Olympic resort, a 35-floor building, also received a conditional green light after an environmental assessment.The building will house apartments, swimming pools, a spa, a gym and parking and will become the second high-rise in the area. Construction is expected to start in 2018 at a cost of €80 million and be completed within three years.Trakkides warned against Paphos becoming “another Limassol” and said he is concerned that hotel owners in Geroskipou are already making enquiries about pulling down their properties and building high-rise constructions to sell on to investors.“This is a big worry, we only have one industry in the district of Paphos and that is tourism. If we get investors such as Chinese or Russian to give us these millions once, then what? We are not thinking ahead. What about the people living and visiting Paphos who like it as it is today?”His concerns are not just over aesthetics, but safety.He questioned what would happen in cases of emergency in tall buildings, as Cyprus is not ready or equipped for such instances. He said that he is not against development as such but stressed that it needs to be done in the right way, and “not this way”.“We don’t want this occurrence to spread around with everyone putting in applications to build tall buildings on different bits of land.”He said such constructions shouldn’t be allowed in sensitive areas, and that it is important where, how high, who is allowed to develop these buildings are decided in advance.“They currently have to be on a piece of land the size of 2,000m2 and above. We really need a special body, with international experts to sort this out.”You May LikeOrganic Welcome9 Natural Drinks For Knee and Joint Pain ReliefOrganic WelcomeUndoObsev7 Mistakes Everyone Makes With Their Job And CareerObsevUndoCampusPal9 College Majors That Have Big Gender GapsCampusPalUndo Greek Prime Minister in Cyprus for official visitUndoNew York state decriminalizes pot, stops short of Cuomo’s legalisation callUndoCompanies must use buying power to root out slavery, says UK officialUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

recently taken interest in Islam but made no mention of terrorism or ISIS Write to Maya Rhodan at mayarhodan@timecomThe National Rifle Association surprised many Thursday when it said it is open to regulations on the “bump stocks” that allowed the Las Vegas shooter to fire into a crowd at a rapid clip But the organization’s grassroots supporters remain fiercely skeptical of new gun restrictions In interviews with TIME this week people who have donated small amounts to the NRA’s political victory fund said that the massacre at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas did not change their mind that restrictions on guns won’t make people safer “If we are going to talk about gun control in my opinion what we need to talk about is punishment for the misuse of any tool or weapon” said Richard Shackleton “Look how many people [have been] killed in cars or buses Don’t single out guns because they’re an easy target” These grassroots supporters form the bedrock of the NRA’s political power In 2017 alone over 3000 individuals contributed to the victory fund which has raised over $4 millionThese donors come from all 50 states and include carpenters truck drivers attorneys doctors real estate agents just to name a few Often these contributions are small;92 percent of the donations in 2017 were below $200 After the Las Vegas shooting TIME contacted 56 small-dollar donors to the NRA to see if their opinions had shifted Only seven were willing to speak on the record These donors all of whom represent different geographic regions of the United States said Las Vegas was a horrifying tragedy They were not angry with the NRA for Thursday’s announcement supporting restricting bump stocks although one expressed some trepidation that it could lead to more rules Some were supportive of other regulations like background checks But they were universally adamant about preserving their ability to obtain and carry weapons; if anything Sunday’s attack only intensified these beliefs And as TIME explained in its cover story this week their arguments were hardly ever about weapons but about preserving the Constitution and their own independence from the government Here is what these donors had to say Richard Shackleton 84 Long Beach Township New Jersey A life member of the NRA Shackleton is an attorney in Long Branch New Jersey who has run his own practice for over 50 years He keeps guns he says to hunt and birds but also protect himself and his family but also believes the right to bear arms was crucial to the founding of the United States and remains so today “Without the provision of the Second Amendment without the fact that the colonists had a right to keep arms we would be singing Hail Victoria and saluting the British flag” he said He also noted that citizens in countries where guns were banned like Germany and Italy in the 1930s ended up succumbing to tyranny “The fact is that armed people are a free people” he said Although Shackleton has no opposition to background checks he does not agree with the argument that the attack in Las Vegas showcases the need for tighter regulation “All the gun control laws in the world would not have prevented a man from smuggling firearms up to … a room in the hotel shooting out the window breaking the window and peppering people in the streets below” Ginny Rapini 70 Colfax California Rapini who is the coordinator of the northern California Tea Party chapter donates to the NRA on a monthly basis and has a concealed weapon permit which she said she acquired after she received death threats for her role in a lawsuit against the IRS Like Shackleton she strongly believes the Second Amendment was written as a form of democratic protection Any regulations that would impede this language she believes would ultimately impede democracy “Our founders know governments are run by humans and there are times when we see governments outstep enumerated powers and it’s up to the people to be able to protect themselves against the government” she said Rapini had friends who were at the Route 91 Harvest Festival when Paddock began firing into the crowd They escaped and were physically unscathed but are mentally shaken “It’s evil it’s darkness” she said of the attack But she said this does not change her view about establishing new gun regulations She also said there was more focus on the guns than the shooter even though the Las Vegas Police Department has been giving daily briefings to the media about the ongoing investigation into Paddock and his motive “You can’t legislate people’s hearts and minds If he didn’t have guns to do what he was gonna do he had explosives” she said “The interesting thing to me is every time there is a shooter like this the guns are blamed not the shooter” Arly Richau 67 Scottsdale Arizona Richau is now an attorney in one of the wealthiest town in Arizona but grew up hunting in North Dakota a sport he started learning at age 5 Today he owns an estimated 50 guns which he uses for shooting as a sport “I can use it to defend myself it’s a great investment and it’s fun to use Can you think of anything that is better than that” he asked rhetorically He says he understands the meaning of the Second Amendment can evolve “When they said the right to bear arms should not be infringed … know it’s not that simple they [the framers of the Constitution] clearly meant the right to defend one’s self” he explained But he thinks the status quo for gun regulations is adequate although he agrees with the NRA about restricting bump stocks “Passing a law provides a false sense of safety and security which is even worse” Richau said “My concern for my safety has gone up not down I am really glad I have the weapons I do in case I get in a bad situation” Philip Baker 55 Batesville Arkansas Baker is a pharmacist from Arkansas who says he uses guns to hunt fish and protect his family He said he was a “little surprised” by the NRA’s announcement supporting regulations for bump stock devices Thursday “All of these politicians I think are feeding into the narrative that they want the public to feel as though they’re doing something” he said “And I don’t think there is any gun legislation that they could have done or they can put in place that would have stopped this maniac in Las Vegas from carrying out his agenda” But while he said he didn’t necessarily expect the NRA’s announcement on Thursday he did think there was a positive aspect “Based on the tragedy that just happened I feel good that they are taking a step towards taking a look at things that might stop it from happening again even though I don’t think it would stop it” John Goglia Saugus Massachusetts Goglia is likely one of only a handful Americans who supports Planned Parenthood as well as the NRA because both organizations try to block federal intervention “There’s government interference in everything we do” he said His support for the right to own a gun is rooted like many others in his belief in the Cconstitution “Bill of Rights is like a jigsaw puzzle and each piece fits perfectly with the other one and they all support each other” he explained He supports background checks and is adamant that people with a criminal past should be prohibited from gun ownership But past shootings have not played a role in shaping these views and Las Vegas is no exception Nothing could have stopped Paddock from getting a weapon he said and calling for gun control now is politicizing the issue “There’s a litany of people just [have] a knee-jerk reaction” he said “Before we even knew what was happening we got people calling for changing the laws” Chris Puckett Edmund Oklahoma Puckett 67 owns a towing business which has been in his family for generations “To me the Second Amendment really protects all the others” he said “Look at Hitler they confiscated the guns and then took over everything It happened time and time again through countries” He donates to the NRA to ensure legislators support Second Amendment rights and the organization’s announcement Thursday concerned him that it would set a precedent “Once you start that slide where do you quit” Although Puckett is opposed to gun regulations because they are explicitly laid out in the constitution when pressed if he was opposed to any regulations he acknowledged that was a “fine line”” and didn’t have a problem with the regulation of automatic rifles “But the problem is” he said “once you let the camels nose in your tent the camel will end up in the tent” Write to

who was suspended in June for leading a “lavish lifestyle”.The decision to punish Banerjee was taken at the end of a two-day state committee meeting of CPM which concluded on Tuesday A Rajya Sabha MP Banerjee was suspended from the CPM on June 2 for three months and a three-member internal inquiry committee — led by MP Mohammad Salim — set up to look into the allegations The committee had submitted its report to the state committee on August 2 Sources said the committee had found prima facie evidence that some allegations against Banerjee were true On Monday the matter was taken up at the party state committee meeting Sources said members were divided on whether to expel Banerjee from the party or remove him from the state committee “Banerjee is a young leader and his performance in Parliament has been appreciated by all of us We do not want the ultimate punishment (expulsion from party) for him as per the party constitution But there will be punitive measures taken against him The final decision will be taken by the central committee But he must get some punishment for his own rectification” CPM state Secretary Surjya Kanta Mishra said “After considering the committee’s report and listening to Banerjee’s response regarding the allegations the state committee has given credence to the report The committee also feels that he needs rectification” he added Mishra said Banerjee will remain suspended from the party till the party’s central committee takes a final decision “He will continue to perform as a Rajya Sabha MP according to the directions of the party and will also look after party’s district level activities” Mishra said Banerjee had sparked off a controversy in February after he allegedly wrote to a private company asking it to take action against its employee who had questioned his lifestyle This was after he had posted a photograph of himself on Facebook sporting an Apple watch and a Mont Blanc Pen After a Democratic Youth Federation of India (CPM youth wing) member questioned on Facebook how a communist leader can sport such expensive gadgets Banerjee allegedly wrote to the company where he was employed and demanded disciplinary action against him The CPM state committee had then publicly criticised Banerjee and cautioned him Banerjee is the former general secretary of SFI He was elected to the Rajya Sabha from West Bengal in February 2014 He had attended South Point High School in Kolkata and has BA and MA degrees in English from Calcutta University He has been accused of leading Left youth workers to harass state Finance

intended So farthoughthe 2012 presidential campaign is fitting into none of these categories Its being organised according to a different metaphor This yearboth organisations seem to visualise the campaign as a boxing match or a gang fight Whichever side can hit the other side harder will somehow get awarded the champions belt So far this yearboth President Obama and Mitt Romney seem more passionate about denying the other side victory than about any plank in their own agendas Both campaigns have developed contempt for their opponentjustifying their belief that everythingthenis permitted In both campaignsyou can see the war-room mentality developing early Attention spans shrink to a point Gone is much awareness of the world outside the campaign All focus is on the news blip of the moment answering volley for volley If they bring a knifeyou bring a gun If they throw a bombyou throw two Both sides are extraordinarily willing to flout respectability to show that they are tough enough to bare the knuckles In Novemberthe Romney campaign ran a blatantly dishonest ad in which President Obama purportedly admits that if the election is fought on the economyhe will lose The quote was a distortionbut the effectiveness of the ad was in showing Republican professionals and primary voters that Romney was going to play by gangland rulesthat he was tough enough and dishonest enough to do sotoo Last weekthe Obama campaign ran a cheap-shot ad on the death of Osama bin Laden Part of the ad was Bill Clinton effectively talking about the decision to kill the terrorist Butin the middlethe Obama people threw in a low-minded attack on Romney The slam made Clinton look smallit made Obama look smallit turned a moment of genuine accomplishment into a political ploybut it did follow the rules of gangland: At every secondattack; at every opportunitydrive a shiv between the ribs This martial-gangland-style of campaigning apparently makes the people in the campaigns feel hardheadedprofessional and Machiavellian But its not clear that its actually the best way to win an election Thats because the style is based on a series of dubious assumptions: that the harshest language is the most persuasive to voters; that what feels good to you as a competitive combatant will also look most attractive to detached onlookers; that over the duration of a six-month campaigndaily combat will continue to look compelling rather than cumulatively revolting; that in a campaign dominated by super PAC negativitya presidential candidate is better served by wading into the brawl rather than separating himself from it The campaign-as-warfare metaphor may seem sensible to those inside the hothouse It may make sense if you think todays swing voters hunger for more combatmore harshness and more attack But its probably bad sociology and terrible psychologygiven the general disgust with conventional politics If I were in the campaignsId want to detach from the

are low hawkers sell goods at lower prices than chargedin established shops They use mainly natural light and hence save on power By contrast regular stores use fans coolers and ACs in addition to numerous lights to ensure better display of goods Manushi has battled for nearly two decades to convince authorities that cycle rickshaws and street vendors deserve to be encouraged if we want to control carbon emissions Unfortunately municipal policies in all cities and towns have kept street vendors and cycle rickshaws trapped in a web of illegality through restrictive licensing policies This makes them easy targets for clearance operations and confiscation drives which are used by the police municipal authorities and politicians to extort hundreds of crores by way of bribes (Illustration by: C R Sasikumar) In response to public hearings organised by Manushi then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had announced a new rational market-friendly policy for street vendors and cycle rickshaws in August 2001 Vajpayee’s colleagues in the BJP worked to sabotage the implementation of that policy However Manushi persisted and managed to wrest from the NDA government a National Policy for Urban Street Vendors in 2004 even though the government made no attempt to actually implement it It took another 10 years before the UPA enacted the Street Vendors (Protection of Livelihood and Regulation of Street Vending) Act in 2014 It has many weaknesses but it mandates that vendors cannot be arbitrarily evicted Instead they have to be given secure places in duly designated hawking zones But since the act has not been implemented on any scale street vendors are still hostage to extortion rackets The cycle rickshaw battle went another route Frustrated by the resistance of the concerned authorities to dismantle the licence-quota raid raj as envisaged inVajpayee’s policy Manushi approached the Delhi High Court in 2007 to challenge the many lawless and unconstitutional provisions governing the operation of cycle rickshaws that enabled the police and municipal employees to confiscate and destroy cycle rickshaws at will Every year at least 60000 rickshaws were being destroyed and many more released after paying hefty fines and bribes On February 10 2010 the Delhi High Court declared the existing rickshaw policy as unconstitutional and struck down unrealistic quotas for licensing It prohibited confiscation and destruction of rickshaws and ordered the Delhi government to constitute a special task force to decide on a new policy that treats NMVs as an integral part of road traffic by providing “equitable” road space for them I was a member of that task force headed by then chief secretary Rakesh Mehta who did a great job of finalising a new policy and legislative framework for NMVs in record time However the police and municipal authorities were perverse enough to challenge it in the Supreme Court which fortunately upheld the high court order Since then it has been an uphill and frustrating battle to get the new policy implemented It requires the open registration of NMVs as wellas dedicated tracks for NMVs and proper footpaths for pedestrians However the police and municipal authorities seem bent on preventing this from happening despite the fact that a special bench of the high court is monitoring progress We are told given the congestion in Delhi that there is no space for NMV lanes or hawker zones But authorities have no difficulty finding space for six- to eight-lane motorways even though this has meant that the city is choking with petrol and diesel fumes Likewise the city government can’t find place for hawkers though it is bending backwards to earmark huge tracts for car parking Most vendors take less space than what’s needed fora medium-sized car and would gladly pay the authorities three to four times the amount car owners pay to occupy prime locations The space occupied by a car becomes dead for all others whereas street vendors create convenience for customers generate their own livelihood and social wealth by providing low-cost outlets for farm produce and goods produced by small-scale industry All first-world cities have pedestrianised city centres and encourage cycling by having safe dedicated NMV tracks to reduce the use of motor vehicles Asian cities like Bangkok Kuala Lumpur and Singapore have well-organised hawker zones They have wide and beautifully maintained footpaths that make walking a pleasurable experience By contrast both cycling and walking on Indian roads are a nightmarish experience because our government thinks only of motor vehicles when designing roads There is an active hostility towards those who follow a non-polluting lifestyle whether out of choiceor compulsion Is it any surprisethen that the very act of breathingin India has become a high risk proposition The writer is a professor at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies Delhi and

Development ministry to the Textiles ministry as part of the cabinet reshuffle by Prime Minister Narendra Modi In over a month since taking the post as Minister of Textiles department the firebrand leader is known to be at loggerheads with her senior-most bureaucrat — Rashmi Verma The Indian Express quoted some sources saying that even the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) had to step in to resolve the matter According to the report Irani has differences with Verma over aspects of the Rs 6000-crore apparel and textile package cleared by the Cabinet on 22 June They also disagreed on the preparations for a textile summit which was scheduled to be held in October Irani also repeatedly contacted Verma’s office seeking response on a range of issues — procedural administrative and policy-related Sources also witnessed a heated argument between the two in the presence of other officers This is not the first time Irani has made headlines for her fiery temper Since the time she was made a cabinet minister two years ago she has remained popular for her outbursts inside and outside of the Parliament Her role as the Human Resource Development minister has been widely criticised (alsogained her the displeasure of the RSS) and some critics also pointed out she is the one cabinet minister who has damaged the BJP politically Here are a few instances where Irani has been part of controversies: Twitter spats Ever since coming to power Irani has been part of various spats on social media platform Twitter with Congress leaders like Priyanka Chaturvedi and Rahul Gandhi In May 2016 after the Assembly Elections took place Irani got in to a spat with Chaturvedi over the loss of Congress in the state of Assam At the time she took a dig at Rahul Gandhi and said that ‘losing is his forte’ This spat kept her trending on Twitter for a long time In another instance in June 2016 Irani and Bihar Education Minister Ashok Chaudhary had indulged in a verbal duel on Twitter triggered by the use of ‘dear’ word by Chaudhary Irani objected to Chaudhary’s tweet when he taunted her about the new National Education Policy’s progress In response to the spat she wrote an open letter on Facebook post signed ‘Aunty National’ where she described the struggles women have to face on a daily basis She said that she is unapologetic about who she is and the hard work she does and that nothing and nobody could take that away from her or any other working woman She also referred to her Twitter spats when she said "So while many working women battle this challenge in confined working spaces I spat it out on twitter for my office travels with me But then there are some who say why talk about yourself at all surely one day they shall realise the amount of work you have done" A file photo of Smriti Irani PTI Rohith Vemula suicide On 17 January 2016 Rohith Vemula — a Dalit PhD student at the University of Hyderabad committed suicide after suspension from college The HCU had reportedly stopped paying him his fellowship money after he was found protesting against the campus authorities The issue snowballed into a political controversy after critics alleged that the HRD ministry had pushed for the Dalit students to be punished When asked to respond to the controversy Irani said in the Lok Sabha that Vemula’s death was used as a political tool She said "This is how politics was played on this child and his dead body Nobody allowed a doctor near him The police has reported. Not one attempt was made to revive this child Not one attempt was made to take him to a doctor Instead his body was used as a political tool Hidden No police was allowed till 630 the next morning Not me the Telangana police is saying this" Irani’s statements were branded as a lie by Vemula’s mother and various faculty at the university The incident inspired simultaneous protests by the Dalit community and the BJP was widely criticised for its stand on the Dalit community The Dailt’s are a major vote-bank and they were a major part of the 2014 victory of the Modi government Irani’s handling of the situation alienated the community The JNU row Soon after the Rohith Vemula suicide some students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University were arrested for on sedition charges after they organised an event on Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru who was hanged in 2013 The event caused clashes between the students of the JNU and the members of ABVP JNU Students Union president Kanhaiya Kumar was arrested on sedition charges after he allegedly raised anti-national slogans The political controversy escalated when Home Minister Rajnath Singh released a statement "If anyone raises anti-India slogans tries to raise questions on the country’s unity and integrity they will not be spared" Smriti Irani jumped into the controversy when she summoned the vice-chancellors from across the country a week after the JNU controversy began to unfold and asked them to install a national flag on a 200-foor mast at a central location on every campus Her failed attempt to portray liberals as anti-national made her a target for a lot of criticism Her comments on the issue in the Rajya Sabha also kicked up a storm JNU VC appointment In the past Smriti Irani is known to have had differences with President Pranab Mukherjee over the appointment of JNU’s vice-chancellor In January 2016 Irani had made her preference clear when she referred VS Chauhan a scientist but Mukherjee chose M Jagadesh Kumar from IIT-Delhi This was not the first time that the apointment of college heads by Irani’s HRD minitry was mired under controversy In September 2015 there were rumours that Irani had asked BJP leader Subramanian Swamy to be the JNU VC Swamy even tweeted about this saying that he has preconditions that he would the ministry to meet The Degree row As soon as Irani took her post as the HRD minister there were allegations that she was not qualified enough for the post In 2004 when she was contesting for the elections she had claimed that she was a Bachelor in Arts But in 2014 she declared herself a Bachelor in Commerce A case was filed against her for making contradictory claims She also claimed to have a degree from Yale University which she later cleared was a six-day leadership programme DU’s FYUP programme Delhi University students and professors gave mixed responses to the roll-back of the four-year university programme a year after it had been initiated on the order of the HRD minister The roll-back caused a row between DU and the University Grants Commission which scrapped the programme However she was lauded in the political circles for her move with the Congress throwing their weight behind her decision The IIT Delhi controversy In December 2014 Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi director RK Shevgaonkar resigned from his post He apparently resigned over Irani’s intervention in the campus affairs two years before he was due to retire from the post It was alleged that Irani had asked IIT to release salary due of Rs 70 lakh to former IIT-Delhi faculty – BJP leader Subramanian Swamy However Irani denied the allegations She made the claims that Shevgaonkar resigned because he was faulted for setting up an ‘illegal’ campus in Mauritius The IIT Mumbai controversy In March 2015 the chairman of the IIT Mumbai board renowned nuclear scientist Anil Kakodkar resigned He gave up the post after alleged interference of the HRD ministry in the selection of three IIT directors which was a prerogative of the search committee according to Kakodkar The IIT Madra controversy IIT Madras de-recognised a students group who were complained against The Ambedkar Peryar Study Circle (APSC) was accused of being critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and creating a atmosphere of hatred Irani’s stand was unclear for she backed the institutes decision but later alleged that the ministry had no role to play in the decision and that it was taken solely by the institute Good governance day In December 2014 the HRD ministry sent out a circular to the schools to observe former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s birthday – 25 December – as Good Governance day This was widely criticised by political pundits because they felt the move was a ‘communal design’ for it fell on the day of Christmas German-Sanskrit row In October 2014 the Board of Governors (BoG) of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) headed bu Irani decided
