Thousands of Croatians rally against abortion

first_imgZagreb: Thousands of anti-abortion marchers took to the streets on Saturday in three cities around Croatia, a largely Catholic country where activists say reproductive rights are increasingly under threat. In Zagreb, police briefly detained around a dozen women’s rights protesters who tried to block the annual “March for Life”, which drew some 5,000 people to the centre of the capital. The crowd was full of children with balloons while demonstrators marched with a banner that read: “Let’s protect the most endangered minority in Croatia — unborn children.” Also Read – ‘Hong Kong won’t rule out Chinese help over protests’Thousands of other anti-abortion activists also marched in the coastal towns of Split and Zadar. “A child should be protected from conception till birth,” said 34-year-old Ivan Plese, a theologist walking with his wife and 10-month baby boy. Ivana Lozo, a 19-year-old at the rally, told AFP that “abortion should be completely banned.” Abortion is legal until the 10th week of pregnancy in Croatia under a 1978 law from when the country was still part of communist Yugoslavia.

Some 60 per cent of gynecologists at public hospitals do not offer abortions by citing a legal right to “conscientious objection”, according to a survey conducted earlier this year by RTL television. The country’s parliament is supposed to re-write the abortion law after a court ruled in 2017 that the current legislation is outdated. Rights groups fear this could pave the way for more restrictions. Zagreb’s rally concluded with a concert from the popular but controversial right-wing singer Marko Perkovic Thompson, who has drawn criticism for being sympathetic to Croatia’s World War II pro-Nazi regime. The demonstration was held on the eve of European parliament elections in Croatia. Organisers denied any political affiliation. Nearly 90 per cent of Croatia’s 4.2 million people are Catholics and the Church plays a central role in society.last_img read more

QEM selects Velseis for 2D seismic survey at Julia Creek

first_imgExploration company QEM says it has engaged Velseis Pty Ltd to carry out a 22 km 2D seismic programme for the project site at Julia Creek in Queensland’s resource rich, NW mining precinct.QEM envisages the programme will commence on site within two months, subject to satisfactory weather conditions.Velseis is an Australia seismic exploration company providing a fully integrated range of seismic technologies, according to QEM. “Velseis has built a reputation as the leading Australian contractor in this field, with over 25 years of experience throughout the Asia-Pacific region,” the company said, adding it provides contracting services for coal, mineral and hydrocarbon exploration.QEM said the seismic programme will provide the information required to give greater certainty to the existing geological and resource models at Julia Creek. This information will also feed into future studies and mine design.“Better understanding the location and type of any geological structures within the project area will also assist in the design of the company’s forthcoming drilling campaign, targeted for Q2 (June quarter) 2019,” it said.QEM’s exploration tenements in the Julia Creek area form part of the vast Toolebuc Formation, recognised as one of the largest deposits of vanadium and oil shale in the world, according to the company.last_img read more

Backdated receipts used for Apple iPhone sales after demonetisation Report

first_imgSale of Apple iPhones spiked immediately after the announcement of the demonetisation move on November 8 as scores of customers rushed to buy the phones with their banned currency and some stores even booked sales through back-dated receipts.Over 1 lakh iPhones were sold around the time, allowing the company to become the only phone maker to meet sales target in November, according to Economic Times, which cited trade estimates to conclude the ballpark figure. The figure of one lakh makes 3/4th of the company’s average monthly iPhone sales.Even though handset sales as a whole across the industry are registering a dip when compared to their sales in the same period last year, iphone sales in November are estimated to have grown by 20-30 percent.”iPhones were sold out in most of the neighborhood stores after demonetisation. In fact, on that night (of November 8) itself, several stores sold iPhones till midnight. Some even sold them at a premium,” the owner of a leading cellphone store in New Delhi was quoted as saying to the Times of India.The surge in sales in the first few days following the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on the evening of November 8 was similar to the demand witnessed for high-value luxury items, such as gold, gems, and other precious metals.Other reasons suggested for the surge in sales include a decline in grey market deals, easy availability of consumer finance and wider acceptance of credit cards and digital payment at stores.In October also, iPhone beat other rivals, such as Samsung, in the sale of their premium/flagship models. Apple led with a 66 percent share of sales, and was trailed by Samsung, which accounted for 23 percent of the total sales from Galaxy S7 and similar phones. Google registered 10 percent of the sales, and only 1 percent was attributed to other makers.”Our iPhone sales in India were up over 50 percent in fiscal 2016 compared to the prior year, and we believe we’re just beginning to scratch the surface of this large and growing market opportunity,” chief executive Tim Cook told analysts in October during Apple’s quarterly earnings call.While Samsung still sells more basic smartphones worldwide and in India than Apple, with a hefty price tag of Rs 60,000 to Rs 92,000 for models such as iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple is able to generate sustainable profits due to their high cost.last_img read more

Beto ORourke Announces His Run For President In 2020

first_img Share Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke is running for president, hoping to build on the momentum the Democrat generated in a Senate contest last year.In a video released in the early hours of Thursday morning, with his wife Amy by his side, O’Rourke announced, “This is a defining moment of truth for this country,” adding what appears will be the focus of his campaign, “the interconnected crisis in our economy, our democracy, and our climate have never been greater.”The 46-year-old O’Rourke mounted a stronger-than-expected challenge to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz last November, coming within 3 points of victory in the deep red state. He raised about $80 million for his bid, most of it from small-dollar donations, and amassed a nationwide grassroots following while eschewing traditional campaign methods.For some, the enthusiasm the three-term congressman generated may have seemed reminiscent of another politician who had only spent a few years in Congress before running for the White House — President Barack Obama. But with only three terms in the House and losing his only statewide bid for office, it could lead others to question whether O’Rourke has the necessary experience for the nation’s highest office.O’Rourke’s 2018 Senate campaign didn’t fit the usual mold. He didn’t hire traditional political consultants and pollsters, didn’t take any PAC money and refused to go negative against Cruz. O’Rourke didn’t just focus his campaigning on urban and suburban areas typically rich with Democratic voters — he traveled to all 254 Texas counties, committing to visit even the reddest, most rural places.Eric Gay/APThe enthusiasm generated by former three-term Rep. Beto O’Rourke may seem reminiscent of another politician who had only spent a few years in Congress before running for the White House — President Barack Obama.Some had encouraged O’Rourke to make another run at the Senate again, challenging Republican Sen. John Cornyn in 2020, but he decided to seek higher office instead.O’Rourke had mulled a presidential run for months and took an unusual break for what appeared to be some soul-searching after his loss, taking a road trip to New Mexico, Kansas and elsewhere.“I had to be moving, I had to be meeting people,” O’Rourke told Oprah Winfrey in a February interview. “It’s just how I think, how I find the next step. I just truly emerged out of this by being with people.”Some Democrats criticized that unorthodox strategy, as other top White House hopefuls were building national and state teams and making numerous early state visits. But O’Rourke’s momentum seemed to be revived in a big way last month amid the debate over building a wall along the Mexican border — right along his hometown of El Paso.When President Trump held a rally in the city, which already has portions of fencing, O’Rourke held a counterrally. Trump relished the face-off, dismissing the Democrat’s crowd size (which was later estimated to be at least as big as Trump’s), claiming that this “may be the end of his presidential bid” and that O’Rourke was simply “a young man who’s got very little going for himself except a great first name.”The former Texas congressman pushed back on Trump’s inaccurate claims that a drop in crime was due to the barriers in El Paso, telling supporters, “We know that walls do not save lives — walls end lives.” Statistics have shown violent crime had dropped in the city well before its wall was erected.“We are making a stand for truth against lies and hate and ignorance and intolerance,” O’Rourke said. “We are going to show the country who we are. We’re going to make a stand to ensure that we live up to our promise, to our potential, to our purpose as a country.”It wasn’t the first time O’Rourke generated national attention for taking on Trump. After the president attacked NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality, O’Rourke responded at a town hall that he “can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee, for your rights, any time, anywhere, in any place.” The clip went viral.O’Rourke has the potential to occupy a unique place in the still-forming 2020 Democratic primary field. He has gotten some support from the progressive wing of the party, but has centrist appeal and a history of bipartisanship too, ultimately resistant to any type of label. And he has the younger, newer face some in the party are eager for and has also gone toe-to-toe with Trump.O’Rourke was first elected to Congress in 2012, upsetting eight-term Rep. Silvestre Reyes in the Democratic primary. Before that bid, O’Rourke had served on the El Paso City Council for six years and had founded his own technology company. He’s an El Paso native whose father was also involved in local Democratic politics. He attended Columbia University, where he played in a punk rock band called Foss.Copyright 2019 NPR.

Junior doctors call off Lalbazar march after arrest of two accused

first_imgKolkata: The junior doctors have cancelled their proposed Lalbazar march on Tuesday after the police arrested two main accused ~ Seikh Tabir and Md Nizamuddin, who were involved in the assault on some junior doctors at NRS Medical College and Hospital in June, during which two junior doctors had sustained critical injuries.The junior doctors on Monday said that they cancelled the Lalbazar march after the police took decisive action in arresting the two main accused who were behind the attack at NRS. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataThey also said that they have responded to the appeal of the Director General of police (DGP) Virendra, who sought 10 days time to take action against the other culprits involved in the NRS incident. The decision was announced after a general body meeting at the Calcutta Medical College and Hospital on Monday afternoon. Incidentally, it may be mentioned that on Sunday the junior doctors had threatened of a march to Lalbazar. “Following our agitation from June 10 to 17, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee gave us some assurances during her meeting at Nabanna. Many of her assurances have been translated into action, while some of her assurances are yet to be fulfilled. During a meeting with the DGP on July 27, he told us that positive steps would be taken against all the accused in the NRS incident,” a junior doctor said. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateHe further stated: “We came to know on Monday morning that the two main accused have been arrested and remanded in police custody till August 9. Around 15 persons were involved in the attack on the junior doctors, which is also evident from the CCTV footages of the hospital.” “We also wanted to know from the DGP what progress has been made in connection with the two separate incidents of attack on the junior doctors at Burdwan Medical College and Hospital and Burdwan Dental College and Hospital. We were told that five persons have been arrested in connection with the Burdwan Medical College and Hospital incident and three in connection with the Burdwan Dental College incident,” said the junior doctor. He added: “As we have seen considerable amount of progress in all these cases, we have taken a unanimous decision not to go for agitation, therefore cancelling the Lalbazar march on Tuesday. We have responded to the appeal of the DGP where he sought cooperation from us.” The junior doctors also said that they would hold a general body meeting at NRS Medical College and Hospital later in the day, where they would talk to the victim doctors who received severe injuries during the assault and remained under treatment for a long time. They also threatened to organise a mass protest opposing the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill, 2019.last_img read more

5 States Plaugued With Mortgage Loan Defects

first_img5 States Plaugued With Mortgage Loan Defects May 26, 2016 565 Views Share Mortgage loan defects, which includes fraudulence and misrepresentation in loan applications, still trouble some areas in the U.S.Although loan defects are back to their normal disappearing act on a national basis, some states are still fighting to get their defect numbers down, according to First American’s Loan Application Defect Index for April 2016.The index decreased 1.3 percent in April as compared with March and decreased by 5.1 percent as compared with April 2015. Loan defects are now down 26.5 percent from the high point of risk in October 2013.In March, First American reported that loan defects were beginning to reappear in the market due to heightened risk from government loans. At this time, the index rose 1.3 percent but was 2.6 percent lower than a year ago. The index rose in March for the first time since July 2015, ending seven consecutive months of declining defect and misrepresentation risk, but was down 25.5 percent from the high point of risk in October 2013.“April’s decline in defect risk was proof that the modest increase observed in March was not the beginning of an upward trend in defect risk. The index is again at the lowest point since its inception,” said Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American.He continued, “Since the peak in late 2013, defect misrepresentation and fraud risk has trended significantly lower. While loan production expenses have increased during this time period, the decline in defect risk is reflective of the adoption and investment in better and more compliant loan manufacturing procedures.”According to First American, the index for refinance transactions fell 3.0 percent month-over-month, and is 7.2 percent lower than a year ago. Meanwhile, purchase transaction defects declined 1.2 percent month-over-month, and are down 5.7 percent compared to a year ago.“It’s important to note that misrepresentation and fraud risk is consistently higher on purchase transactions than refinance transactions. We expect, as mortgage rates increase, the share of refinance transactions will decline,” Fleming said. “So, it is possible that the overall Defect Index could indicate an increase in risk because of a change in the relative mix of low risk refinance transactions to higher risk purchase transactions.”“The mortgage industry continues to benefit from its adoption of technology and investments to improve the loan manufacturing process. Defect and misrepresentation risk is at historically measured lows. Yet, we should be wary that future increases in the overall index may not represent a true reversal of this benefit, but rather a reflection of the decline in volume of lower risk refinance transactions relative to higher risk purchase transactions,” he concluded.First American’s Top 5 States With the Highest Year-Over-Year Increase in Defect Frequency:North Dakota (+27.8 percent)Missouri (+14.7 percent)Utah (+12.5 percent)Kentucky (+10.9 percent)Oklahoma (+9.6 percent)First American’s Bottom 5 States With the Highest Year-Over-Year Decrease in Defect Frequency:Michigan (-20.4 percent)West Virginia (-17.4 percent)New Mexico (-13.0 percent)Florida (-12.5 percent)Alabama (-11.8 percent)center_img First American Financial Corp.
