India is going to spend almost $1 billion on the tallest effigies, each will be taller than the Statue of Liberty.Read it at The Live Mirror Related Items

Last week Brock University submitted a proposal for a strategic mandate agreement (SMA) to the province’s Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU).In late June, MTCU requested that every college and university in Ontario prepare a document that would articulate the mandate and vision of each institution as well as identify three distinct priority areas and explain how they align with government objectives.Brock’s proposed SMA identifies what differentiates the University from other post-secondary institutions in the province. This includes conducting transdisciplinary research with community partners to address vital issues of the communities served by the University, and meeting the learning needs of students through different educational experiences and styles of teaching and learning.At Brock, the SMA exercise was the culmination of a sustained process of integrated strategic planning that has been ongoing for the past two years. In a sense, it is helping to crystallize and refine strategic planning already underway at the University.“The actions we put forth in this proposal can be seen as being part and parcel of an implementation plan of our strategic plan that we’ve been working on for some time,” says Murray Knuttila, Provost and Vice-President, Academic.The MTCU asked colleges and universities to outline a strategic mandate; a task Knuttila notes was not difficult for Brock.“It was supposed to talk about your strengths and why these priorities are logical given your strengths and your history,” he says. “I think we articulated things we can do and I think we articulated things that are absolutely worthwhile doing.”Brock’s SMA, which is available online, includes the following three priority objectives:Serving the 21st-century learner-putting students firstEstablishing five transdisciplinary research institutes and developing new graduate and undergraduate programsBuilding a network of partnerships that promote prosperity through entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity“For priorities, our puzzle was how specific do you get?” says Knuttila. “The creation of this document was a delicate balance of articulating priorities that indicate your preparedness to take actions, but with an academic focus to them.”Senate was consulted in the preparation of Brock’s SMA and the document was reviewed by the chair of the University’s Board of Trustees on behalf of the Board. It also has the support of the Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU) and Graduate Students’ Association (GSA).Submitted plans will now be reviewed by the Minister’s office, and then forwarded on to the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO) who will convene an expert panel to review the plans and make recommendations back to MTCU.
According to the Liverpool midfielder, the team is doing pretty well in the English Premier League thanks to Fabinho and James Milner.Liverpool is currently in the first place of the English Premier League table with 57 points.They are four points ahead of second-place Manchester City.And for defender Jordan Henderson, is all thanks to Fabinho and James Milner.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“Aside from the big task of trying to get the right result in this game, we also have the challenge of a few injuries at the moment and we, as the players, know this means we all have to step up, be flexible and adapt,” Henderson told the club’s official website.“In recent games, we take great inspiration from people like Fabinho. Yes, he’s an experienced international with a track record of performing well in multiple positions – but to play center-half at Brighton and play like he did impress everyone.”“There was no fuss or drama from Fab – he just delivered,” he added.“James Milner, as the gaffer has joked, has played just about every position on the pitch except as ‘keeper. Already this season he’s filled in at full-back and the way he gets on with his job and puts the team first is a perfect example as well.”

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido gestures after a meeting at the European Union headquarters in Brasilia, Brazil on 28 February 2019. Photo: ReutersVenezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido vowed on Thursday to return home “in the coming days… despite threats” from president Nicolas Maduro’s regime, as he continues a tour of regional allies to rally international support.Guaido, recognised as interim president by more than 50 countries, met with Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro on Thursday afternoon while Paraguay’s leader Mario Abdo announced Guaido would be in Asuncion on Friday.After flouting a travel ban by Maduro’s regime, Guaido went to Colombia last Friday where he met president Ivan Duque, US vice president Mike Pence, Abdo and Sebastian Pinera of Chile.Guaido was in Colombia to try to force desperately needed humanitarian aid — which is also stockpiled in Brazil — into Venezuela but was thwarted by a determined military blockade ordered by Maduro.Guaido “wants to show the Venezuelan people that he’s being hosted by the president of Brazil… He wants to give the message that he’s recognised” as Venezuela’s true leader, Brazil vice president Hamilton Mourao said in an interview with Globo.”I’ve received threats against me and my family, but also threats of imprisonment by the regime,” Guaido said alongside Bolsonaro.Guaido was to dine with Brazil’s foreign affairs minister Ernesto Araujo and then meet Abdo at 11:00am (1400 GMT) on Friday at the presidential palace.Venezuela is wracked by a humanitarian crisis that has seen poverty soar as millions of people face chronic shortages of food and medicine.After years of economic chaos, its problems have been compounded by hyperinflation that the International Monetary Fund says will reach 10 million per cent in 2019 — leaving salaries and savings virtually worthless.An estimated 2.7 million Venezuelans have left the country since 2015, the United Nations says.The latest to join the exodus are members of Venezuela’s military — whose high command still backs Maduro. Colombian immigration officials said that more than 550 Venezuelan military members have deserted and sought asylum across the border.Fears of arrestGuaido stunned the world last month, proclaiming himself Venezuela’s acting president after the National Assembly he leads declared Maduro a usurper and illegitimate over his May re-election which was widely criticized as fraudulent.Guaido wants to oust Maduro and set up a transitional government ahead of new elections.”We’re fighting for free elections, as stipulated by the constitution, democratic elections,” Guaido and Bolsonaro said in a joint statement.Far-right leader Bolsonaro apologized for the support that two of his leftist predecessors — Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff — gave to Maduro.Guaido told reporters that he would return home “at the latest on Monday,” although there are fears he might be arrested when he does.Guaido would have to face justice when he returns because he ignored his ban on foreign travel, Maduro told US channel ABC News earlier this week.Guaido’s supporters were planning a welcome home party at the offices of the El Nacional newspaper in Caracas on Friday.The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights exhorted Maduro’s government to ensure no harm comes to Guaido, including by “third parties.”At the United Nations on Thursday, failure to take action on two competing drafts laid bare divisions among world powers over the way forward in Venezuela.Russia and China vetoed a US resolution in the Security Council calling for new elections and unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid, while Russia’s draft urging a political settlement “through peaceful means” failed to secure the required number of votes.Strengthening relationshipsGuaido arrived in Brasilia on a Colombian military plane early Thursday.He met European diplomats in Brasilia to “strengthen relationships with those countries that have recognized our efforts to recover democracy and achieve free elections,” Guaido said on Twitter.His team is studying the possibility of visiting Roraima state, the border area with Venezuela where four people were killed in weekend clashes with Maduro’s security services, a source in his camp said.Guaido says 300,000 people face death without the food and medicine supplies, much of them from the United States, stockpiled in its neighbours.Eight out of 10 Venezuelan households are at risk of food shortages, a study by three Venezuelan universities found.A concert organised by billionaire British entrepreneur Richard Branson last Friday raised $2.5 million in one week to help Guaido’s aid effort, organisers said.

At this point in the Ouya’s life, most people have moved on from the initial feelings of outrage that the hardware induced, to sympathy for a company that seemed like they really were trying to revolutionize gaming. Facing embarrassingly poor reviews and a generally negative reception by the gaming public, the company never made an attempt to get Ouya consoles into homes, such as with the tried-and-true tradition of a price drop. Now, the folks over at Ouya are actually doing the opposite, and releasing a new, more expensive model that doesn’t revise what makes the Ouya a tough sell.In an effort to capitalize on the limited holiday edition of the Ouya, the biggest change to the new console is that it has doubled in storage capacity. It has only doubled from 8GB to 16GB — a capacity that’s too small for a smartphone if you’re into the mobile gaming scene and also store a moderate amount of music. However, that’s not too big of a deal considering the console only runs a limited (relative to the entire Play Store, at least) library of Android games.One of the biggest problems with the Ouya was the uncomfortable, laggy controller. Simultaneously hilarious and depressing, a prominent “hack” to make the controller less laggy was to literally tip the Ouya on its side, facing the top part of box toward your controller. This actually improved the controller’s responsiveness — and considering the Ouya’s vent is on the bottom for some reason, also improved cooling. The new model claims to introduce an improved controller with “better functionality” and improved Bluetooth for a faster response, but we’re not entirely sure what that better functionality details.The Newya and its controller also get a black matte makeover, and boosted WiFi connectivity that aims to solve another of the console’s more prominent issues.The new model jumps in price to $129.99, while the original Ouya is still available for $99.99. It would’ve been nice if the company upgraded the hardware to match modern-day power — it’s still using a Tegra 3 and 1GB of RAM instead of a Tegra 4 and some larger amount of RAM. The Tegra K1 is just over the horizon, so the Ouya could be waiting to make that upgrade, which would be preferred over the Tegra 4. While the Newya’s slight upgrade is nice, it’s confusing as to why Ouya didn’t just make this new model the standard Ouya for the normal $99.99 price, and abandon the original 8GB model. An extra 8GB of storage capacity won’t set the gaming world on fire, but at least its nice that the folks at Ouya are still trying. Unfortunately, the biggest problem with the Ouya is that it’s an Android gaming console — a genre of gaming that hasn’t exactly taken off.You can check out and purchase the Newya over at Ouya’s site.
Jim Harbaugh to the Colts is a perfect fitThe Colts looked like the worst NFL team in their blowout loss to the Rams in Week 1. Colin thinks Chuck Pagano is as good as gone, and of all the candidates that could replace him, one name is head and shoulders above the rest. Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh.Harbaugh has a history with the organization, and a reunion with Andrew Luck, whom he coached at Stanford is exactly what Luck needs to revive his stalled career.Michigan fans will say he’ll never leave his alma mater, but Harbaugh’s career resume shows he never stays in one place for very long. Taking on rebuilds is what he does. This could happen, and it should happen. The Saints are going nowhere with Sean PaytonThe Saints lost their opener to the Vikings, 29-19, and looked unimpressive. Under Sean Payton, New Orleans has gone 7-9 in in four of the past five years, and this year looks like it could be as bad or worse.Colin thinks it’s obvious that whatever magic Sean Payton conjured when he led New Orleans to their 2009 is Super Bowl is long gone, and it’s time to look at replacing him.He’s remained untouchable because of his relationship with Drew Brees, and is living off his reputation from his Super Bowl win, but any other coach that goes 7-9 in four of five seasons would have been gone a long time ago.Also:The Herd Hierarchy after NFL Week 1Guests:Tony Gonzalez – Fox NFL Kickoff co-host and former All-Pro tight end is in-studio to talk NFL Week 1; why he thinks the Jags could be the NFL’s surprise team this year and why Cam Newton has to runDoug Baldwin – Seattle Seahawks wide receiver joins the show to talk Seattle’s offensive struggles against the Packers; how they can get on track; and why their outspoken locker room is a product of Pete Carroll.Dean Blandino – Fox NFL Referee Analyst and former Vice President of NFL officiating is in-studio talking NFL Week 1 officiating; review the ejection of Seattle’s Jeremy Lane; and if officials should eat the whistle more and let replay figure out borderline calls.Peter Schrager – Fox Sports NFL Insider joins the show to talk NFL Week 1; the improved Rams; Cooper Kupp love; and what the Patriots need ot do to get on the right track.

However, at present, breast cancer screening based primarily on risk — as discussed in the JAMA article — would miss the overwhelming majority of breast cancers present in women and result in thousands of unnecessary deaths each year.The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) made similar suggestions to those of this JAMA article. However, an analysis (Hendrick and Helvie), published in the American Journal of Roentgenology, using the task force’s own methodology, showed that if USPSTF breast cancer screening guidelines were followed, approximately 6,500 additional women each year in the U.S. would die from breast cancer. It is also likely that thousands more would endure more extensive and expensive treatments than if their cancers were found early by a mammogram.To arrive at their recommendations, the JAMA article authors also placed too much emphasis on the obsolete and low lifesaving benefit of mammography claimed in outdated or discredited studies. For instance, the Canadian National Breast Screening Study (CNBSS) has been widely discredited and should not be considered alone or in a meta-analysis such as this JAMA article. The World Health Organization long ago excluded the CNBSS from its analyses of screening mammography’s impact of breast cancer mortality. In a recent interview with CNN, the American Cancer Society echoed methodological concerns about the study. Breast cancer groups, such as BreastCancer.org, have criticized this study and warned against following the author’s recommendations. A recent article published in The Oncologist shows that many other studies cited in the Pace and Keating article, and elsewhere, regarding over diagnosis and potential harms of mammography are not well as well-founded as has been reported and that their conclusions cannot simply be taken as fact.More recent randomized control trials, particularly the largest (Hellquist et al) and longest running (Tabar et al) breast cancer screening studies in history respectively, have reconfirmed that regular mammography screening cut breast cancer deaths by roughly a third (roughly double that claimed in Pace and Keating) in all women ages 40 and over — including women ages 40–49. A study (Otto et al) published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention shows mammography screening cuts the risk of dying from breast cancer nearly in half. A recent study published in Cancer showed that more than 70 percent of the women who died from breast cancer in their 40s at major Harvard teaching hospitals were among the 20 percent of women who were not being screened. Perhaps most importantly, according to National Cancer Institute data, since mammography screening became widespread in the mid-1980s, the U.S. breast cancer death rate, unchanged for the previous 50 years, has dropped well over 30 percent. These trial results and government reports may be most applicable to the current state of breast cancer screening.Every major American medical organization with expertise in breast cancer care, including the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Cancer Society, American College of Radiology, National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and Society of Breast Imaging recommend that women start getting annual mammograms at age 40. The ACR and SBI continue to stand by these recommendations.Mammography can detect cancer early when it is most treatable and can be treated less invasively — which not only save lives, but helps preserve quality of life.For more information: www.MammographySavesLives.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more read more News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family The bidders are vying for service contracts in which they will be paid a flat fee, rather than the more lucrative production-sharing contracts in which they receive a share of the hydrocarbons found.Since 2008, Iraq has awarded 15 oil and gas deals to international energy companies, the first major investments in the country’s energy industry in more than three decades.The goal was to boost daily production from about 3 million barrels now to 12 million barrels by 2017. But Iraq is mulling whether the target should be revised downward to fewer than 10 million barrels, considering a possible drop in demand on oil in the international market and infrastructure bottlenecks.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Iraq holds the world’s fourth largest oil reserves and hopes to develop its natural gas industry.THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.BAGHDAD (AP) _ Iraq opened on Wednesday its fourth postwar bidding round for oil and natural gas exploration, with 39 foreign energy companies registered to compete for exploration rights in a dozen areas of the country.The government is seeking foreign investment to build up an energy sector hit by years of neglect and violence. Iraq holds the world’s fourth largest oil reserves and oil revenues make up nearly 95 percent of the country’s budget.In an opening speech, Iraqi Oil Minister Abdul-Karim Elaibi said exploration of the areas up for bidding will increase Iraq’s oil reserves and help the country enter the natural gas industry. He promised that his ministry will “spare no efforts to help and support the companies as partners to achieve the common interests.”Still, conditions for bidders are less attractive than in the three previous rounds held since the 2003 overthrow of Saddam Hussein. Only areas with undetermined hydrocarbon resources are on offer, while previously the rights to known big and medium oil and gas fields were being auctioned off. Operating costs for energy companies could be high because most of the 12 exploration blocks are in remote and unsafe areas and lack infrastructure.The government also added a clause for the first time that prevents companies from signing deals with regional authorities without the approval of the central government in Baghdad. Companies that violate the clause will have their contracts terminated, said Sabah al-Saidi, the deputy head of the Oil Ministry’s Licensing and Petroleum Contracts department.The new clause came in response to Exxon Mobil’s bold move last year to sign six deals with Iraq’s northern self-ruled Kurdish region without Baghdad’s approval. In return, Baghdad banned the Texas-based company from taking part in the current bidding, but kept a deal to develop the 8.6-billion-barrel West Qurna Phase One oil field in the south.Wednesday’s auction started with no one bidding for an 8,000-square-kilometer (3,100-square-mile) block in northwestern Iraq with presumed natural gas fields. Associated PressBAGHDAD (AP) – A consortium led by a Kuwaiti energy company has won the rights to search for oil and gas in southern Iraq.Kuwait Energy and its partners, Turkey’s TPAO and the UAE’s Dragon Oil, will be paid $6.24 for each barrel of oil equivalent they find in a 900-square-kilometer (350-square-mile) area in Iraq’s oil-rich southern Basra province.The Basra-area exploration block is the first to be awarded of 12 that are up for bidding in Iraq’s fourth postwar energy auction that started Wednesday. Three dozen foreign companies are involved.
KINSHASA, Congo (AP) — Congo’s army and U.N. forces should work together in the fight against rebels in the east, a top U.S. State Department official said Thursday, despite lingering concerns about the human rights records of Congolese generals involved in the campaign.In February, the U.N. formally ended support for a Congo military offensive against the FDLR militant group after two Congolese generals linked to human rights violations were picked to lead the operation.

The FDLR was formed by extremist Rwandan Hutus who fled into eastern Congo after taking part in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.But Congo has so far not complied with U.N. demands that Gen. Bruno Mundevu and Gen. Fall Sikabwe be removed from the operation. The U.N. says the generals are known to be involved in “massive human rights violations.”In an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday in Kinshasa, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Tom Malinowski said the U.N. and Congo’s army shouldn’t let “disputes” block the kind of cooperation that led to the toppling of the M23 rebel group in 2013.“What we need is for the government and the United Nations to work together, to resume the cooperation that was so effective in the past and not to let any disputes between them delay cooperation that is needed to save the lives of people in the east,” said Malinowski, who is assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights and labor.Malinowski also voiced “concerns about shrinking space for civil society” as Congo prepares for elections in 2016.

Molly Shannon." Revere wrote in an email. I was already an elected county councilor And so I spent my whole PhD and postdoc juggling these two roles I got my first academic position and then the opportunity to become an MP came up in Cambridge and so I switched It’s always been a challenge to find the best way of doing something worthwhile Q: The topic you’ve researched is one that it’s arguably fair to say is somewhat obscure But it now has some potential biomedical use Is your own research career an example of kind of where basic research might lead JH: How obscure my research field is depends on how you look at it DNA as a molecule is something that has been researched proactively for a long time But when I started we thought these particular structures that I work on were more likely to be rare One of my papers now says that they may be involved in controlling almost half of all genes It’s very exciting Q: Do you think the recent policy document from the Labour government on how to handle scientific advice is appropriate or does there need to be more revision to how government handles scientific advice JH: One of the key things is it failed to get the trust of the scientists and I think that’s a big problem It’s hard because sometimes scientific evidence is counterintuitive and politicians have to be able to accept that We also need to understand the difference between hearing advice considering advice and acting on exactly what it is I’m very much pro- scientific evidence but I don’t want a sort of technocracy where scientists say "This is the right way to do something" Q: You’ve stated a position on Britain’s national DNA database Can you explain that JH: I think it is entirely wrong to have a database that contains data of innocent people That’s a value that I have There are also a number of technical concerns For example it’s quite easy to fake a DNA sample if you have access to somebody’s records on a database There are also clear statistical differences between two different ways of using DNA data I have no problem with the use of DNA data But if you have a suspect and a sample from a site and you do a match that can give you very different statistical information from saying "Here is a sample test against millions of possible people and find a match" The statistics between those two are very very different and I don’t think courts lawyers or the public understands the difference Q: What do you think is the future for British universities in terms of their tuition fees Is it going to be more of the American-style tuition system or can that trend be stopped JH: I really hope we can change that system I don’t want to see a system where people are put off going to university because of the fees they have to pay In America there are very large endowments and that’s help to alleviate it We don’t have that in this country I don’t want things to go down that route I already have a student who may well have to drop out because of the fees I would like to see a system where education is free for the first degree—funded by general taxation I think it’s right for people who are earning more money to pay not students Q: Stepping back to you leaving science how are you going to handle this transition JH: I’ve been very carefully preparing for this in consultation with my head of the department My students will be moving on to other places; the postdoc is a joint [position] with another supervisor who will be able to take full management responsibility Some of projects will probably continue even though I don’t Q: Has it been intimidating exciting or both to be working on DNA structures at the Cavendish Laboratory given the history of what it means to DNA [Francis Crick and James Watson discovered the double helix structure of DNA while there] JH: It’s a great place to be It also shows what happens when you forget the value of interesting science Although Lord Cavendish did fantastic work in the early stages of molecular biology there was then a regrettable decision that this wasn’t proper physics And so the Laboratory of Molecular Biology for example was not part of the Cavendish and the physics department really moved away from this area which was a real loss to the department It’s only quite recently with the new Physics of Medicine Institute that the gulf has been bridged again allowing us to do some really good work Q: Can you tell me where your anticancer drug work stands—these quadruplex structures you believe might be targeted JH: There’s research around the world to develop drugs which can selectively bind to these quadruplex structures The problem is selectivity because you need a ligand that will bind to quadruplexes rather than [DNA] duplexes because there’s a lot more duplexes And you also need to select for one particular quadruplex over another and that’s currently been very hard to do although there has been very nice work towards that We’ve been working on trying to get that selectivity Q: Do you have any regrets about leaving science What are you going to miss most JH: I’m not sure if it’s quite hit yet One of the great things is having colleagues around the world There’s really something very special about that that collaborative approach I’ll miss that But then there are some very nice people to work with here in Westminster as well Q: In your campaign you didn’t seem to be running as a scientist; you certainly weren’t hiding that aspect of your career but it wasn’t the dominant thrust Is that a fair assessment JH: I’ve been 8 years as a county councilor several years on the regional assembly so no being a scientist is not the only thing about me But it was mentioned on pretty much every single piece of literature that we put out We had a glossy magazine that included a feature about some of my work But I think the general public is not interested in the details of quadruplex ligands By Ahmed Aboulenein BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and Iranian-backed militia chief Hadi al-Amiri’s decision to choose compromise over confrontation and strike an alliance aiming to form the next Iraqi government has eased tensions after elections marred by fraud allegations Sadr’s bloc scored a stunning victory in the May 12 parliamentary election by tapping growing public discontent with neighbouring Iran’s sway in Iraq and promising to deliver what past governments have not: jobs better services and stability But beneath the surface there were fears that regional power Tehran which before the vote said it would never let Sadr govern would sabotage the mercurial cleric and set the stage for a showdown that could turn bloody In the end an alliance has emerged of strange bed-fellows: Sadr who portrays himself as a nationalist and Amiri Iran’s most powerful ally in Iraq whose grouping came second Their choice of pragmatism has lowered the risk of violence among Iraq’s Shi’ite majority after a costly conflict war with the Sunni Muslim militants of Islamic State Sadr is treading cautiously aware that Iran has manipulated Iraqi politics in its favour in the past and of Tehran’s vast sway in its most important Arab ally In a 2010 election Vice President Ayad Allawi’s bloc won the most seats but he was prevented from becoming prime minister blaming Iranian manoeuvring "If he (Sadr) insisted on fighting everyone at the same time he would be outmanoeuvred and the pressure of a re-run of the elections was too much" said a Western diplomat in Baghdad Tehran which has thrived amid Iraqi Shi’ite rivalries in the past by acting as a broker has its own motivations Sadr’s alliance with Amiri announced in the holy Shi’ite city of Najaf to project a sense of unity gives Tehran more leverage over the formation of Iraq’s next government FEELING THE HEAT Amiri who spent two decades fighting Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein from Iran and speaks Farsi fluently is one of the most powerful figures in Iraq His Badr Organisation controls the interior ministry and he played a decisive role in the battle against Islamic State "Amiri had the momentum behind him especially in this election this is an opportunity for him" said Hassan Hassan senior fellow at the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy "He is fresh off the field very popular in some circles" Amiri is close to Major General Qassem Soleimani commander of foreign operations for Iran’s Revolutionary Guards who has great influence in Iraq Soleimani was in Iraq this week a second Western diplomat in Baghdad said adding that it is likely that he advised Amiri to ally with Sadr who recently met Iran’s ambassador The Iranians have decided they must accept Sadr the diplomat said and he will have in turn realised he must work with Amiri to safeguard his victory Shunning Amiri could make life difficult for Sadr His foe former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is still in the picture despite being forced out of office and widely blamed for Islamic State’s seizure of a third of Iraq In 2008 Maliki ordered a crackdown on forces loyal to Sadr in the Shi’ite heartland According to the first diplomat who recently met Sadr he felt pressured and feared his victory was going to vanish Acting on what Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said were widespread violations a parliament stacked with lawmakers who failed to retain their seats mandated a nationwide recount Some politicians said the election should be repeated MIDDLE GROUND Abadi seemed to lose the most out of the alliance diplomats and analysts said Even though he has balanced the interests of Iran and the United States who compete for influence in Iraq his bloc has yet to join any coalition He may yet win a second term as a compromise candidate albeit as a much weaker premier beholden to Sadr and Amiri Iran does not seem worried about the uncertainty but is under growing pressure to preserve its interests in the Middle East especially in Iraq US President Donald Trump pulled out of a nuclear deal with Tehran then engaged nuclear state North Korea increasing Tehran’s isolation In Yemen Houthi forces aligned with Iran face the biggest offensive from a Saudi-led coalition in the three-year conflict part of a regional proxy war between Riyadh and Tehran "There is a certain element of pragmatism in Iran on foreign policy" said Renad Mansour research fellow at Chatham House in London "Iran does not want Iraq to collapse but it also does not want Iraq to be too strong They want a middle ground" Even if Sadr’s deal with Amiri succeeds he may have to contend with grievances from members of his own bloc who insist Tehran would not be allowed to interfere in Iraqi affairs (Reporting by Ahmed Aboulenein; additional reporting and editing by Michael Georgy) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff

streamline goods and services tax (GST); and renew impetus on reforms the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said today India’s growth accelerated to 77 percent in the fourth quarter of Financial Year (FY) 2017-18 That was up from 7 percent in the previous quarter "We expect the recovery to continue in FY 2018-19 Growth is projected at 74 percent in FY 2018-19 and actually 78 percent in FY 19-20 respectively" IMF Communications Director Gerry Rice told reporters at his fortnightly news conference In order to sustain the high growth rate Rice suggested three steps for India to follow "One to revive a bank credit and enhance the efficiency of credit provision; by accelerating the cleanup of bank and corporate balance sheets and enhancing the government of public sector banks" he said The logo of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) at the organisation’s headquarters in Washington AFP "Point two to continue fiscal consolidation and to lower elevated public debt levels supported by simplifying and streamlining the goods and services tax (GST) structure" he added He then suggested India to renew impetus to reforms of key markets over the medium-term "And thirdly over the medium-term renew impetus to reforms of key markets for example labour and land as well as improving the overall business climate would be crucial to improving competitiveness and again maintaining that very high level of growth in India" Rice said in response to a question The IMF Board is tentatively scheduled to meet on 18 July for its annual India meeting "We will be releasing the staff report in relation to that Board meeting and it will have detail (about GST)" he said when asked about simplifying and streamlining the goods and services tax structure "It (GST) is a complicated tax to administer and to implement so I think some suggestions that streamlining can be important There will be more on that in the context of the Article IV" Rice said The IMF is scheduled to release on
