Reviving an endangered language in the age of social media

first_imgIn Alaska, the number of fluent Haida speakers has dwindled down into the single digits. It’s been called an endangered language. But in Juneau, one group is trying to change that. Haida Language Learners is using YouTube, Snapchat and Instagram to reach a wider audience.Download AudioEmily Rose Edenshaw-Chafin shows me her phone. She’s been using a flashcard app to practice Haida. It’s totally customizable. She can create the cards and share them with teachers and friends. On one of the cards is a picture of a horse grazing in a field, and it’s broken down into cuts of meat — labeled Gyuudáan Kiʼíi eehl Hl ʼwáadaagang.“And then the second one is a cartoon, the one in English that says ‘I have horse meat for sale.’ It’s a picture of a horse head inside a burger,” Edenshaw says.Not a real horse head, part of a costume.“For me, it makes it funny and it makes it more interesting,” she says.The Haida arrived in Southeast a few hundred years ago. Some left their ancestral home of Haida Gwaii, which is now part of Canada. They settled in villages on Prince of Wales Island. Edenshaw says the Haida language’s grammar structure is similar to Spanish. And like Spanish, it can sound like a foreign language.“And being Native you’re disappointed that you don’t know your own heritage and language. It’s hard to work past that sometimes,” she says.Edenshaw has practiced Haida for over a decade. Her family moved to Hydaburg when she was a kid, and she started picking words up.“You know, like thank you: Háw’aa. Hágwsdaa: hurry up. You hear that one a lot.”But she says it was hard to learn more complex phrases. In college, she was able to take a free class taught by a linguist.“I really fell in love with the language. I wanted to write poetry in Haida. I wanted to dream in Haida, so I continued to practice with it.”She says part of that meant finding someone to speak Haida with, to use words and phrases that are relevant in conversation today. Edenshaw met Susie Lee Edwardson in Haida class.In their YouTube video, a picture of Grumpy Cat flashes on the screen. You know, Grumpy cat. The feline celebrity meme. Edwardson repeats the word híndaa or “go away.”It has more than 200 views. Their YouTube Channel has about 145 subscribers, which may not seem like a lot. But remember, Alaska’s fluent Haida speakers are in the single digits. Edwardson has only been studying it for about three years, and says she didn’t grow up speaking the language. Her parents spoke a word here and there.“It didn’t really connect with me as it was a part of me,” Edwardson says. “But when I got into college and I started learning the language with my family, it felt really good and it felt like you were going into a community that you were a part of all your life.”The number of fluent Haida speakers has been declining for the past 100 years. Many boarding schools run by the federal government and missionaries enforced strict bans on Native languages. Edwardson says it’s a serious topic, but they’re trying to make learning Haida fun. It’s involved some compromise.She took down one of their YouTube videos because some found it offensive. In that video, she says the Haida word for penis. OK, maybe they went a little farther and said “tiny penis.” But Edwardson says they don’t want to offend anyone.“Like the little radical in me is like, ‘it’s the language,’” Edwardson says. “But at the same time we want it to be accessible. And if families are going through the YouTube videos and there’s something they don’t want them to learn yet, I don’t want them to stay away from the language.”Then there’s also the issue of finding ways to express modern notions. But Edenshaw says that’s totally doable.“We ask the elders what would make this work. What can we do to translate this into Haida?” Edenshaw says. “So we’ll all understand it and then we can use just Haida vocabulary and our thoughts and what we’re doing nowadays.”The Haida phrase for computer literally means “the box that knows everything.” A cellphone is a “purse phone” or “wallet phone.” Spinach is “iron leaf.”And she says having the web to connect with others has been huge. Haida Language Learners has received messages from a teenage fan in New York. They’ve helped people in remote communities say goodbye to a loved one at a funeral in Haida.Edenshaw recently quit her day job to focus on language revitalization full-time. She wants people to know Haida isn’t dead.“We can bring back the language. We can’t bring back every single part of the culture but we can bring back the important parts that will make us feel whole and make us feel right in the world.”She hasn’t dreamed in Haida yet. But she is writing poetry.last_img read more

Mallott Murkowski try to put human face on King Cove road

first_imgAleutians East Borough Mayor Stanley Mack and Sen. Lisa Murkowski prepare to meet with reporters in the Senate Press Gallery. Photo: Liz Ruskin/APRNLt. Gov. Byron Mallott joined residents of King Cove in Washington, D.C. this morning to make another plea for a road between King Cove and the all-weather airport in Cold Bay.Download AudioMallott likens the road effort to other public land-use conflicts, in which, he says, federal policymakers put concern for wildlife habitat and the “national interest” ahead of the needs of rural Alaskans.“In order to preserve something that’s called ‘the greater good,’ our lives are minimized, marginalized and in many ways consciously — consciously! — determined to be unimportant, to the point where we become faceless,” he said.Mallott spoke at a hearing called by Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who says she’s trying to attach faces to the issue for Washington to see. Della Trumble, a witness from King Cove, says she’s been trying to get a road for 35 years, and Alaska’s congressional delegation has tried since at least the 1990s. Road proponents say residents need a way out in bad weather, especially during medical emergencies.But 11 miles of the road would have to be built in the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge.“This refuge is one of the most vital and extraordinary wildlife refuges in the world, and it must remain that way for all Americans to enjoy,” said Nicole Whittington-Evans, Alaska director for The Wilderness Society, who testified against the road.She says the road would pass through a strip of land that’s an important wildlife corridor for bear, wolves and caribou. On either side of that land corridor are two lagoons that she calls the heart of the refuge.“Most of the world’s population of Pacific Black brant and emperor geese, and a significant portion of the threatened Steller’s eider population, depend on Izembek’s habitat,” she said. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell ruled out a road in 2013. She says she’s trying to find an alternative. Aleutians East Borough Mayor Stanley Mack says other alternatives make no sense, given King Cove’s often harsh weather and the realities of boat travel.“Strapping an injured patient in a gurney and hoisting them up to the dock on a boat, which can be as much as 25 feet, is always a scary situation. This is basically what we have to do,” Mack said. “Or putting elders in a crab pot and using a crane to hoist them to the top of the dock is frightening.”Speaking to reporters after the hearing, Alaska Congressman Don Young said the secretary is valuing geese over people. Young says he might just go to King Cove and build the road himself.“So I could drive that D-8 cat right down that road, right where it’s been surveyed and then see what they’re going do,” the congressman said. “Now, if they arrest me, that’s better yet.”Sen. Murkowski says she’s not giving up. She didn’t say what her next move will be, but she noted that Jewell won’t be Interior secretary much longer.last_img read more

Jamaica marks 50th anniversary of independence

first_img Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Jamaica moved toward independence in the 1940s, when Britain enacted policies to give its Caribbean colonies greater economic and political autonomy.At midnight on Aug. 6, 1962, in the national stadium, the flag of the British empire was lowered for the final time and replaced by the gold, black and green Jamaican flag that flies today.Since then, the island has become a hothouse for world-class athletes and musicians, even while struggling with intermittent political violence and other difficulties.___David McFadden on Twitter: http://twitter.com/dmcfadd But Monday’s anniversary was not a reason for everyone to cheer. Some islanders, especially older Jamaicans who still long for the days of stability under British rule, argue that Jamaica has clearly fallen behind in the five decades since it achieved independence, largely due to political mismanagement by the two main political parties.“Without all the `politricks’ from the parties we’d be a lot better off in this country,” said Fitzroy Reid, a clothes vendor.Opposition leader Andrew Holness said Jamaicans should be proud of their heritage but added that the country needs to do some serious soul-searching to confront its many challenges.“We must accept that the quality of life of many Jamaicans remains at unacceptable levels. The images of poverty are very disturbing. Corruption and inefficiency are almost institutionalized in the society,” Holness said in an independence day statement.Jamaica came under British control in 1655 when it was captured from the Spanish. The colony was mainly used to produce sugar, relying heavily on the work of African slaves until emancipation in 1838.Over the next century, Britain invested in infrastructure, but was criticized for repression of black activists who rebelled over high food prices and poor treatment. Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories Associated PressKINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) – Shrugging off economic hardships and high crime, people across Jamaica proudly wore the national colors of gold, black and green Monday to mark the Caribbean island’s 50th anniversary of independence from Britain.Telephone poles and streetlights were wrapped in the flag’s colors across the scenic island of less than 3 million inhabitants. In the capital of Kingston, revelers wore shirts emblazoned with Jamaica’s name as they thronged a “golden jubilee village” showcasing the country’s history, food and culture.

The air filled with the smell of sizzling jerk chicken cooked in severed oil drums.By Monday evening, thousands of Jamaicans gathered inside the stadium to watch military marching bands, gospel choirs and homegrown ska, rocksteady and reggae music. South Africa President Jacob Zuma, former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan were among the dignitaries at the festivities.The celebration came a day after Jamaican sprinters Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake thrilled the island by winning the gold and silver medals in the 100-meter dash at the London Olympics. Jamaican Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce won her second consecutive Olympic title in the women’s 100 meters Saturday to start off a historic weekend for her homeland.Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, who wants her Commonwealth country to sever some ties with the British monarchy so it can turn the page on its colonial past, made a special point to thank the nation’s athletes.“My fellow Jamaicans, across the city of London, with every stride that they made, our Jamaican spirits soared. With every jump high or long, we heard a proud Jamaican roar,” said Simpson Miller, the country’s first female leader. How men can have a healthy 2019last_img

Air France pilots on strike

first_imgFor the third consecutive day, pilots extended a strike forcing Air France to cancel more than half its flights on Wednesday 17 September 2014. The movement is perceived as provocation by French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who asked the pilots to stop their “incomprehensible” industrial action.Pilots have interrupted their services in response to the airline’s plan to develop Transavia France, its low cost subsidiary with pilots cheaper to employ. Unions are concerned that the company will try to cut costs by developing the low-cost Transavia services at the expense of Air France operations.An Air France pilot’s salary is around 75,000 euro per annum, while a captain of long-haul flights earns up to 250,000 euro. According to an airline source, the hourly rate of a Transavia France pilot was about 40% less than a pilot at the senior group.Air France only operated four of its10 flights on Wednesday 18 September, as unions and management failed to come to an agreement.“We have to stop this strike”, Valls said on French radio.“It is regrettable that a single category of employee, in this case pilots, can bring air transport in the country to a standstill.”He said the strike was “incomprehensible” to most French people and was “weighing heavily on Air France, on its finances but also on the attractiveness and the image of our country.”Air France president and general manager Frederic Gagey estimated the daily losses from the strike at 10 to 15 million euros.Pilots are threatening to extend the movement indefinitely, which would increase the travel disruptions. On Thursday, the airline hoped to operate at least 42% of flights.Economy minister Emmanuel Macron said, “We can no longer accept that the country is blocked by a few people… I think the strike has to stop.”Macron called on the company to make “a few concessions.” At this date, the management has limited the Transavia fleet to 30 planes instead of the 37 originally planned until 2019. Unions are asking for Air France pilots to be at the controls of any aircraft with over 100 seats, regardless of the operating company, Transavia included.Airports remain largely deserted as Air France notified passengers in advance that their flights were cancelled. The French national railway company SNCF, is benefitting from the events, reporting a three per cent increase in passenger traffic and adding extra capacity.

lobbied for Biden’s cancer moonshot A 25 November Cures draft calls for raising the money by selling oil from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve and redirecting funds from a public health fund established by the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) The money would flow into a new NIH Innovation Account that congressional appropriators would control But that plan has drawn opposition from some Senators including those concerned about the public health programs and is a source of angst in the biomedical research community The arrangement disappoints those who sought a dedicated stream of money for NIH not subject to the vagaries of the annual appropriations process but satisfies some lawmakers’ desire to keep Congress in control of spending “Our hope is that this fund will add a layer of security” for NIH’s budget says Tannaz Rasouli a policy specialist at the Association of American Medical Colleges in Washington DC But “there are no guarantees” warns Howard Garrison a policy expert at the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) in Bethesda Maryland He and others want Congress to use the fund as a supplement to NIH’s regular budget but fear it could become an excuse to curb spending in other parts of the agency Garrison also worries about other provisions that could burden NIH In a bid to boost accountability for instance Congress wants the director of each institute to personally review and sign off on grants “It’s awkward it’s unnecessary and it’s burdensome” Garrison says And FASEB worries a plan to impose renewable 5-year term limits on institute directors could make it harder for NIH to recruit talent New Research Policy Board Getting a warmer welcome are provisions aimed at reducing the regulatory burden on institutions that get federal research dollars Reporting requirements on grants have grown over the past few decades for instance as have rules meant to safeguard research subjects The bill creates a Research Policy Board within the White House Office of Management and Budget The board which would be made up of representatives from up to 10 federal agencies and a similar number of research institutions would study emerging regulatory problems as well as recommend how to harmonize existing policies(For more on the research board read this ScienceInsider story) The idea came from a 2015 report by a committee of the National Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine Another provision calls for a review of 5-year-old rules that tightened conflict of interest reporting by NIH-funded researchers Institutions complain the rules have imposed big costs with little benefit The bill’s FDA provisions aim to accelerate the agency’s review of some new drugs and medical devices In certain cases FDA would allow companies to run smaller clinical trials or rely on evidence collected outside of trials to support approval In an apparent bid to boost stem cell and other experimental therapies the current draft also directs FDA to give special attention to treatments designated as “regenerative advanced therapy” If a treatment meets the criteria—for example if it is based on stem cells or other tissues and addresses an unmet medical need—regulators can offer a company faster review or more flexibility in setting trial endpoints A set of potentially controversial provisions would expand FDA’s priority review system which attempts to create an incentive for companies to develop drugs for neglected tropical and pediatric diseases by doling out tradeable vouchers that entitle the companies to speedier agency reviews Cures would add medical countermeasures—designed to respond to a chemical or biological attack for example—to the treatments that would win vouchers for their developers But critics say there is little evidence the vouchers have worked and worry that creating even more of them will only reduce their potential value If Cures stalls in the Senate where critics have argued it gives too much leeway to the drug industry backers fear it could be a lengthy wait for another chance to lock in NIH funding and tweak FDA rules The bill says Representative Fred Upton (R–MI) a leading sponsor is a “once-in-a-generation transformational opportunity to change the way we treat diseaseI also believe that we could find common ground with Russia in the fight against ISIS They too have much at stake in the outcome in Syria and have had their own battles with Islamic terrorism My Administration will aggressively pursue joint and coalition military operations to crush and destroy ISIS international cooperation to cut- off their funding expanded intelligence sharing and cyberwarfare to disrupt and disable their propaganda and recruiting We cannot allow the internet to be used as a recruiting tool and for other purposes by our enemy we must shut down their access to this form of communication and we must do so immediately Unlike Hillary Clinton who has risked so many lives with her careless handling of sensitive information my Administration will not telegraph exact military plans to the enemy I have often said that General MacArthur and General Patton would be in a state of shock if they were alive today to see the way President Obama and Hillary Clinton try to recklessly announce their every move before it happens like they did in Iraq so that the enemy can prepare and adapt The fight will not be limited to ISIS We will decimate Al Qaeda and we will seek to starve funding for Iran-backed Hamas and Hezbollah We can use existing UN Security Council resolutions to apply new sanctions Military cyber and financial warfare will all be essential in dismantling Islamic terrorism But we must use ideological warfare as well Just as we won the Cold War in part by exposing the evils of communism and the virtues of free markets so too must we take on the ideology of Radical Islam While my opponent accepted millions of dollars in Foundation donations from countries where being gay is an offense punishable by prison or death my Administration will speak out against the oppression of women gays and people of different faith Our Administration will be a friend to all moderate Muslim reformers in the Middle East and will amplify their voices This includes speaking out against the horrible practice of honor killings where women are murdered by their relatives for dressing marrying or acting in a way that violates fundamentalist teachings Over 1000 Pakistani girls are estimated to be the victims of honor killings by their relatives each year Recently a prominent Pakistani social media star was strangled to death by her brother on the charge of dishonoring the family In his confession the brother took pride in the murder and said: "Girls are born to stay home and follow traditions" Shockingly this is a practice that has reached our own shores One such case involves an Iraqi immigrant who was sentenced to 34 years in jail for running over his own daughter claiming she had become "too Westernized" To defeat Islamic terrorism we must also speak out forcefully against a hateful ideology that provides the breeding ground for violence and terrorism to grow A new immigration policy is needed as well The common thread linking the major Islamic terrorist attacks that have recently occurred on our soil 9/11 the Ft Hood shooting the Boston Bombing the San Bernardino attack the Orlando attack is that they have involved immigrants or the children of immigrants Clearly new screening procedures are needed A review by the US Senate Immigration Subcommittee has identified 380 foreign-born individuals charged with terrorism or terrorism- related offenses between 9/11 and 2014 and many more since then We also know that ISIS recruits refugees after their entrance into the country as we have seen with the Somali refugee population in Minnesota Beyond terrorism as we have seen in France foreign populations have brought their anti-Semitic attitudes with them In Cologne Germany on New Years Eve we have seen the reports of sexual violence and assault Pew polling shows that in many of the countries from which we draw large numbers of immigrants extreme views about religion such as the death penalty for those who leave the faith are commonplace A Trump Administration will establish a clear principle that will govern all decisions pertaining to immigration: we should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people In the Cold War we had an ideological screening test The time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today In addition to screening out all members or sympathizers of terrorist groups we must also screen out any who have hostile attitudes towards our country or its principles or who believe that Sharia law should supplant American law Those who do not believe in our Constitution or who support bigotry and hatred will not be admitted for immigration into the country Only those who we expect to flourish in our country and to embrace a tolerant American society should be issued immigrant visas To put these new procedures in place we will have to temporarily suspend immigration from some of the most dangerous and volatile regions of the world that have a history of exporting terrorism As soon as I take office I will ask the State Department and the Department of Homeland Security to identify a list of regions where adequate screening cannot take place We will stop processing visas from those areas until such time as it is deemed safe to resume based on new circumstances or new procedures The size of current immigration flows are simply too large to perform adequate screening We admit about 100000 permanent immigrants from the Middle East every year Beyond that we admit hundreds of thousands of temporary workers and visitors from the same regions If we dont control the numbers we cant perform adequate screening By contrast my opponent wants to increase the flow of Syrian refugees by 550% percent The United States Senate Subcommittee on Immigration estimates that Hillary Clintons plan would mean roughly 620000 refugees from all current refugee-sending nations in her first term assuming no cuts to other refugee programs This would be additional to all other non- refugee immigration The Subcommittee estimates her plan would impose a lifetime cost of roughly $400 billion when you include the costs of healthcare welfare housing schooling and all other entitlement benefits that are excluded from the State Departments placement figures In short Hillary Clinton wants to be Americas Angela Merkel and you know what a disaster this massive immigration has been to Germany and the people of Germany crime has risen to levels that no one thought would they would ever see We have enough problems in our country we dont need another one Finally we will need to restore common sense to our security procedures Another common feature of the past attacks that have occurred on our soil is that warning signs were ignored The 9/11 hijackers had fraud all over their visa applications The Russians warned us about the Boston Bombers here on political asylum and the attackers were even twice interviewed by the FBI The female San Bernardino shooter here on a fiancé visa from Saudi Arabia wrote of her support for Jihad online A neighbor saw suspicious behavior but didnt warn authorities because said they didnt want to be accused of racially profiling now many are dead and gravely wounded The shooter in Orlando reportedly celebrated in his classroom after 9/11 He too was interviewed by the FBI His father a native of Afghanistan supported the oppressive Taliban regime and expressed anti-American views and by the way was just seen sitting behind Hillary Clinton with a big smile on his face all the way through her speech He obviously liked what she had to say The Ft Hood Shooter delivered a presentation to a room full of mental health experts before the attacks in which he threw out one red flag after another He even proclaimed that "we love death more than you love life" These warnings signs were ignored because political correctness has replaced common sense in our society That is why one of my first acts as President will be to establish a Commission on Radical Islam which will include reformist voices in the Muslim community who will hopefully work with us We want to build bridges and erase divisions The goal of the commission will be to identify and explain to the American public the core convictions and beliefs of Radical Islam to identify the warning signs of radicalization and to expose the networks in our society that support radicalization This commission will be used to develop new protocols for local police officers federal investigators and immigration screeners We will also keep open Guantanamo Bay and place a renewed emphasis on human intelligence Drone strikes will remain part of our strategy but we will also seek to capture high-value targets to gain needed information to dismantle their organizations Foreign combatants will be tried in military commissions Finally we will pursue aggressive criminal or immigration charges against anyone who lends material support to terrorism Similar to the effort to take down the mafia this will be the understood mission of every federal investigator and prosecutor in the country To accomplish a goal you must state a mission: the support networks for Radical Islam in this country will be stripped out and removed one by one Immigration officers will also have their powers restored: those who are guests in our country that are preaching hate will be asked to return home To Make America Safe Again We Must Work Together Again Our victory in the Cold War relied on a bipartisan and international consensus That is what we must have to defeat Radical Islamic terrorism But just like we couldnt defeat communism without acknowledging that communism exists or explaining its evils we cant defeat Radical Islamic Terrorism unless we do the same This also means we have to promote the exceptional virtues of our own way of life and expecting that newcomers to our society do the same Pride in our institutions our history and our values should be taught by parents and teachers and impressed upon all who join our society Assimilation is not an act of hostility but an expression of compassion Our system of government and our American culture is the best in the world and will produce the best outcomes for all who adopt it This approach will not only make us safer but bring us closer together as a country Renewing this spirit of Americanism will help heal the divisions in our country It will do so by emphasizing what we have in common not what pulls us apart This is my pledge to the American people: as your President I will be your greatest champion I will fight to ensure that every American is treated equally protected equally and honored equally We will reject bigotry and oppression in all its forms and seek a new future built on our common culture and values as one American people Only this way will we make America Great Again and Safe Again For Everyone $1.

Nwobodo in a statem

Nwobodo, in a statement noted that the menace of violent herdsmen across the country was enough reason for the creation of state police “If States are given the power to have security apparatus to effectively carry out community policing security threats such as herdsmen’s terrorism and other social vices in the various localities will be aggressively curbed” he said “Nigeria is ripe to practice true federalism as is the case with the US where we copied our federal system “More powers should be devolved to the components States for the sake of building a virile and strong federal system “The herdsmen are not superhumans It is the lacklustre of the security agencies in the country to contain their criminal activities that are making them to be notorious for terrorising innocent Nigerians “The security agencies are by acts or omissions encouraging the herders to kill Nigerians with impunity “Even when it is glaring that these internationally acknowledged terrorists group are bearing arms while grazing their cow the Government has not taken any step to disarm them “No security agency has seen it unlawful for the Fulani herdsmen to roam the streets with dangerous weapons even as they are using the same weapons to commit genocide in Nigeria “The recent failed attempt to kill our former president Dr Chris Ekiyor is an attack on the Ijaw nation This is not the first attempt for the herders to turn the Ijaw land into a theatre of war “Only last month the same marauding criminals invaded Torugbene and Tamigbe communities in Burutu LGA of Delta State IYC cannot condone any further attack on Ijaw people or our communities “We won’t sit idly by and allow these beasts in human form to commit genocide in our land We will defend our people and our lands “As for the proposed cattle colony our position is that the Ijaw nation is even not good for ranching not to talk of the colony because our communities are waterlogged “Ijaw nation has no land We only have marshy Lands of tropical and mangrove forests Herdsmen should not come to our communities because they will not find grass to graze their cow “The only available space we have is the Atlantic Ocean If the herders can graze in the sea then we can create a colony for them in the high sea” The hot weather is here so your plans probably dont extend much beyond reaching for a bottle of Bud or sipping on

experts are saying that there could be as many as 120 million – almost double the amount of people living in the countrySpeaking to the Sun Andy Hill who is a pest controller at Wee Critters Pest Control said that he found a rat that was four feet long when he was called out on service Credit: PA "Thankfully it was already dead – but we measured it and found it was 130cm long from the head to the tip of its tail Thats just over four foot" he said "Bins in many areas are now only emptied fortnightly – leaving the rats lots of time to munch on rubbish leftovers – and people are chucking more and more food away Theyre all over the city at the moment – and this is a problem thats just getting worse You see them in daylight and in gardens which were previously quite rare "Its likely the heat and the fact they need to find new water supplies is driving them above ground" These rodents can carry up to 60 diseases that people can catch and you can get them by coming into contact with their droppings and saliva or getting bitten or scratched Credit: PA Youve probably been to the Magaluf Strip and thought you had seen it all but these rats are about to give even the zaniest of drunken

NewsThe current deadlock with China at the Doka La area in the Sikkim sector is one fight India cannot afford to lose It isn’t just about the strategic vulnerability of the Siliguri Corridor (which is no doubt of serious concern) it is equally about India’s standing as a major power which underwrites insurance to smaller nations within its sphere of influence to balance China’s hostile revanchism And finally it is also about the writ of liberal democratic order over authoritarianism China’s rise poses a unique threat to the world in terms of value sets that a superpower brings to the table to shape the world around it The threat to Asia is obviously graver The stakes are high and deep China knows it too which is why its belligerence is touching new highs (or lows if you will) every day While India’s response has so far been fairly circumspect China has been indulging in a game of dangerous brinkmanship Short of sounding the war bugle China has opened several fronts to bully India into submission A military conflict looks unlikely at this stage but that possibility appears directly proportional to the length of this impasse File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and China president Xi Jinping Reuters A new front was opened on Sunday when Beijing’s state-controlled media hinted at the possibility of Chinese troops entering Jammu and Kashmir through Pakistan and even cross the Line of Control (LoC) into the Indian territory if New Delhi doesn’t back off from Doka La and let China continue with its road-building exercise in the disputed area This is as naked a threat as it gets and crosses one of India’s most sensitive red lines Though China has been merrily constructing roads and building infrastructure in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir as part of its China Pakistan Economic Corridor at least publicly it has referred to Kashmir dispute as a bilateral issue between Islamabad and New Delhi But now the mask is off Through an intensification of psychological warfare China is now signaling that it is willing to barter a largely peaceful bilateral tie with India in exchange for strategic gains in the tri-junction which will eventually enable it to: a) make Tibet the economic hub of Himalayan frontier and b) hold incontrovertible advantage over Indian army in the Sikkim sector Writing for Global Times Chinese think tank fellow Long Xingchun argues that India’s logic of entering China’s "established territory" through Bhutan exposes New Delhi to a similar risk "Even if India were requested to defend Bhutan’s territory this could only be limited to its established territory not the disputed area Otherwise under India’s logic if the Pakistani government requests a third country’s army can enter the area disputed by India and Pakistan including India-controlled Kashmir" said Long who also serves as the director of the Center for Indian Studies at China West Normal University He goes on to argue that were such an eventuality to occur India can expect no help from international community (read the Untied States) because they value their transactional relationship with Beijing more "At present though the US and other Western countries have the intention to contain China through supporting India they have a wide range of common interests with China Therefore Western countries cannot unconditionally stand on the side of India about India’s incursion into China’s territory" writes the scholar This scaling-up follows China’s move (once again through its state-controlled media) to fuel insurgencyin Sikkim and Bhutan On Sunday Global Times carried another article where it claimed to be quoting a ‘Bhutanese blogger’ who had some very unflattering things to say about India’s relationship with Bhutan "It is true that within Bhutan there are Indian military presences as declared by India And yes Bhutanese Army is trained by India and even funded by India But all this is not for defence of Bhutan It is for the security of India In the defence strategy plan of India against China India counts on Bhutan’s ability to secure her international borders with China So Indian military is in Bhutan for defence of India And likewise Indian Army’s recent action at Doklam Plateau has nothing to do with Bhutanese national interest or with Bhutanese Security Force at Doklam" writes Wangcha Sangey ostensibly "a legal consultant from Bhutan" China opened another front when it rather strangely issued a travel advisory through its embassy in New Delhi on Saturday asking its citizens to be careful about personal safety in India A Chinese foreign ministry official told PTI that it was an "advisory" not an "alert" (which is more serious) but even so it doesn’t explain why China is issuing travel advisories for India where its citizens face no threat and not Pakistan where two of its nationals were recently abducted and murdered And last in the series of threats no less potent is Chinese media’s warning to New Delhi on Tibet The Tibetan-government-in-exile’s move to unfurl Tibetan ‘national flag’ in Ladakh has predictably raised China’s hackles Though there has been no evidence of India’s involvement it didn’t stop Global Times in one more editorial to write that "although the involvement of New Delhi remains unclear we hope they did not send any signal of approval" said a report in Times of India Kashmir Tibet Sikkim-Bhutan are an essential part of China’s ‘string of threats’ strategy against India If we study the linear progression of the current conflict some inferences are revealed One China has no wish to vacate the territory without at least some concessions on India’s part Two towards that end it is ready to indulge in competitive risk-taking secure in the knowledge that it has a deeper ability to absorb strategic shocks than India Three China believes India is running out of options This brings us to India’s response to the standoff New Delhi has so far not budged from its ground at Doka La neither has it engaged China in a competitive shouting match It has signaled to China that it wishes to solve this impasse diplomatically not militarily As a de-escalatory measure India’s tactics are apt But does India possess any policy of compellence Can it force China to behave in a certain way that suits its end instead of reacting to Chinese moves While the army is locked in a standoff New Delhi has gone ahead and signed a deal with Vietnam in the disputed South China Sea to drill for oil Reuters reports that this week Vietnam granted ONGC Videsh a two-year extension to explore oil block 128 part of which covers the "nine-dash line which marks the vast area that China claims in the waterway a route for more than $5 trillion in trade each year" Reuters quoted an ONGC official as saying that the move is more strategic than commercial because there is only "moderate potential" for oil and "Vietnam also wants us to be there because of China’s interventions in the South China Sea" China and Vietnam have been engaged in an intense standoff on competing maritime claims over South China Sea and India has of late been supplying Hanoi with military and strategic equipment including naval patrol boats surveillance satellites training services and is slated to transfer more vessels and missiles under a $500 million defence deal that Narendra Modi government signed with Hanoi last year the report says In the battle of unequals Vietnam obviously leans heavily on India India has now only woken up to the fact that it can no longer avoid its responsibility as a security guarantor in the Indian Ocean region (IOR) where many countries expect it to play a larger role Towards that end India’s move to invite the heads of 10 ASEAN nations for Republic Day celebrations (Brunei Cambodia Indonesia Laos Malaysia Myanmar Philippines Singapore Thailand and Vietnam) is a welcome sign It indicates a willingness to be creative As a Times of India report points out "Republic Day 2018 will be the first time ever that so many leaders will together be chief guests at the parade which showcases India’s military might" In yet another signal that India under the Modi government is taking its ‘Act East’ policy seriously New Delhi recently pulled out all stops to "make Myanmar military chief’s eight-day visit here a resounding success with top-level meetings visits to defence establishments and a series of banquets" according to another Times of India report This sends out several messages at once One India is ready to equip Myanmar with military equipment to neutralise the Chinese threat Two New Delhi is ready to lead an ‘ASEAN conglomerate’ against China’s rapid expansionism in IOR And three the larger point is that India feels increasingly confident about facing up to China and is no longer willing to play a diffident role It becomes clear when we see these developments not as isolated incidents but as a concerted effort why this latest standoff at Doka La was waiting to happen China feels that the Modi government is too assertive and needs to be taught a lesson India is signaling that if Beijing wants to play New Delhi is ready

has decided to open its doors for private sector specialists in select departments a senior personnel ministry official said A proposal is being worked out to induct 50 such specialists from the private sector in government departments at the level of director and joint secretary he said Many of these posts are manned by civil service officials A presentation giving details of the proposal was shown to Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently by the personnel ministry the official said Private sector talent can be brought in on fixed-term contracts to supplement the government’s effort of providing good and effective governance he said About 48 lakh employees work in various central government departments Over 42 lakh posts were vacant as on 1 March 2015 according to latest data Representational image PTI The move to induct private sector specialists comes following a suggestion from the government’s policy think tank Niti Aayog "Today rising complexity of the economy has meant that policy making is a specialised activity Therefore it is essential that specialists be inducted into the system through lateral entry Such entry will also have the beneficial side effect of bringing competition to the established career bureaucracy" a draft agenda report on civil services reform by the Aayog had said In areas requiring specialised knowledge it is important to develop expertise among internal staff and induct lateral entry the report said "This specialisation by the internal staff needs to be complemented by lateral entry of highly specialised staff on fixed-term contracts Specialists could be brought on three to five year contracts Such a system will bring top talent and energy into the government and will lend new dynamism to the ministries" it said The government has already been appointing private persons in some departments In June an ayurveda physician ‘Vaidya’ Rajesh Kotecha was appointed as special secretary in Ayush Ministry Usually a senior bureaucrat preferably an IAS officer is appointed to such a post In 2016 former IAS officer and renowned sanitation specialist Parameswaran Iyer was appointed secretary Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation Iyer who had taken voluntary retirement from Indian Administrative Service (IAS) was appointed on contract basis for two years The Centre recently also opened banking sector and central public sector enterprises for private sector specialists Houston:Police in Texas have not ruled out the possibility of more arrests in the mysterious death of a 3-year-old Indian girl even as her

felony endangerment to a child and was placed on electronic ankle monitoring He surrendered his passport as a condition of making bond on 9 October He was later released Police confirmed on Tuesday that the body of a child found on Sunday in a culvert beneath a road was that of Sherin Mathews The cause of death was still pending the Richardson Police Department said on its Facebook page citing the Dallas County Medical Examiners Office Wesley’s wife Sini Mathews who is a registered nurse was reportedly sleeping in her room when the incident occurred Perlich had earlier said police believe
