Brandi Morin APTN National NewsPrime Minister Justin Trudeau said during a speech in Paris that Indigenous people can teach the world how to care for the planet.Trudeau was speaking Monday at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also known as COP21, in Paris.While outlining the principles on which Canada will base its climate action plan, Trudeau included a reference to the importance of working with Indigenous people.He said Indigenous people are taking a leadership role on climate change and that Indigenous knowledge could be helpful in dealing with the issue.“Indigenous peoples have known for thousands of years how to care for our planet,” said Trudeau. “The rest of us have a lot to learn and no time to waste.”He also said the government will work with provincial and municipal leaders to create clean growth.Trudeau invited premiers and environmental leaders to attend the event a few weeks ago.Last Thursday, just four days before the start of the UN gathering, AFN National Chief Perry Bellegarde said he accepted an invitation from environment minister Catherine McKenna to join Canada’s official delegation to COP21.Bellegarde had already been scheduled to attend with the International Indian Treaty Council’s North American Indigenous delegation which is funded by the United Nations Development Programme.Outlining principles to take on climate change, Trudeau said Canada will act on advice based on scientific evidence and committed to providing funding to developing nations most affected by climate change.He also expressed support for implementing policies that will contribute to the development of a low carbon economy, which will include carbon pricing.“It’s the right thing to do, for our environment, economy and as part of the global community.”He said climate change is more than a challenge, but an historic opportunity.“An opportunity to build a sustainable economy based on clean technology, on green infrastructure and on green jobs. We will not sacrifice growth, we will create growth,” he said.Over 40,000 people from around the globe, including 150 world leaders, are gathered in Paris this week. COP21 is the largest environmental gathering in history where an international treaty is projected to be created to take steps to globally combat the threat of global warming.Canada is warming at twice the global rate and the Arctic region is being hit the hardest, according to Environment Canada firstname.lastname@example.org@songstress28

Rabat – Following speculations that Real Madrid’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will move to Manchester United, the English club’s head coach, Jose Mourinho has expressed his interest in the footballer’s teammate Alvaro Morata, instead of Ronaldo himself.Ronaldo, who is currently facing four charges of tax fraud in Spain, was reported to want to leave Real Madrid and Spain. International media outlets have heavily linked him to a move to his former team, Manchester United.According to international media platforms, including British publication The Mirror, Mourinho is keen to sign a Real Madrid striker, but not Ronaldo. The newspaper alleged that the coach is instead desperate to sign Morata. 24-year old Morata is looking for more opportunities since he struggled to make a place with Zinedine Zidane’s team, Real Madrid. Manchester United are reportedly ready to offer a bid of GBP 60 million to sign the footballer.In a surprising turn of events, Ronaldo is apparently no longer interested in leaving Real Madrid. British news platform The Sun, reported that this was due to the club’s president Florentino Perez supporting Ronaldo in the tax fraud case the footballer currently faces. read more
“Resources currently in-hand do not guarantee a full relief food basket for beneficiaries,” said the latest weekly update on Ethiopia compiled by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).It also added that “without additional resources, the food sector projects a full pipeline break in a couple of months.”$1.2 billion is needed for food relief to10.2 million people. However, the current appeal is only funded by one third. Given the lead times necessary for the procurement of relief items, the Government and its international partners have called for early action to this slow onset natural disaster.Fragmentation of delivery is of critical priority as it has negative implications for nutrition and health, and the beneficiaries have to travel more than twice to the food distribution point within short period. Meanwhile, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) is helping deliver food to 2 million people and has started using the humanitarian supplies from the Port of Berbera in Somaliland. Further, the allocation-dispatch-distribution is being finalized in about 4 weeks and the geographic and programmatic priorities for the first quarter of 2016 have also been completed by OCHA’s inter-cluster group and its country team.Child protection is another concern due to drought, as poor families are taking negative coping mechanisms such as child marriage. As such, Child Protection Rapid Assessments (CPRA) validation and drought response planning workshops are being held at national and regional levels. However, financial requirements are also expected to expedite this exercise. The El Niño global climactic event has wreaked havoc on Ethiopia’s summer rains, says OCHA. This comes on the heels of failed spring rains, and has driven food insecurity, malnutrition and water shortages in affected areas of the country.The current El Niño pattern, being the strongest ever recorded, has caused severe drought in the Horn of Africa nation, resulting in crop reduction by 50 to 90 per cent and leaving some 10.2 million people food insecure. read more

He has blamed Colombia for the incident but provided no evidence. Colombia said the accusation was “baseless”.The government has also pointed the finger at the opposition, prompting fears of a new crackdown. Many opposition leaders have already left the country citing government harassment and there are reported to be more than 200 political prisoners in the country’s jails.The incident happened when Maduro was speaking at an event to mark the 81st anniversary of the national army. A bang is heard and footage of his speech shows the president suddenly looking upwards and dozens of soldiers running away.Two drones loaded with explosives went off near the president’s stand, Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez said.

Wolf Wiese CEO of Golden Dawn Minerals reported, September 27, on activities at the Greenwood precious metals project. “Yesterday the company has given the required 72 hours’ notice to the BC Ministry of Environment that mobilization of equipment and crews are nearing readiness to commence dewatering the Lexington mine. The company currently has a mine contractor on site and is working with its environmental consultant to carry out this project according to required conditions. The primary dewatering program is estimated to take approximately four weeks, with discharge at up to 1,000 m3/d, and will be followed by continual dewatering at up to 35 m3/d. The mine is accessed from two declines, which will be rehabilitated as the mine is de-watered.”Once the mine is pumped out, permanent mine services, including mine electrical and ventilation can be installed to facilitate underground mine operations. Initial work will consist of mapping and sampling of the workings and definition drilling to validate the resources and support a test mine program design. Test mining would provide mill feed for the Greenwood process plant.Exploration drilling continued in late August at the Golden Crown property, which hosts the company’s processing plant and tailings facility. Drilling is currently underway to verify, infill and extend the known mineral resources on the property. Fifteen holes have been completed to date. This work is being undertaken in anticipation of permitting the Golden Crown mine in the second half of 2018. Also during this season, the company’s geological personnel have been prospecting numerous historic mine sites and mineral showings, in order to delineate further drill targets with a view to increase mill feed tonnage over the ensuing years. All historic mines and active mines are within a 15-km radius of the Company’s mill.A limited surface diamond drilling program was completed at the May Mac mine after the successful and extensive underground drill program completed in late spring of this year. A total of 1,886 m were drilled in eight holes from surface. The holes tested the northwest strike continuation of the Skomac vein system, with mineralized quartz veins intersected in seven of eight holes, and disseminated copper mineralization intersected in the overlying rock unit. Significant assay results were obtained in hole BF17-03, which intersected 1.13 g/t Au, 23.0 g/t Ag and 0.7% Pb over 0.36 m between 204.34 and 204.7 m depth. Previously unknown copper mineralization was intersected in hole BF17-08 between 45.0 and 45.79 m (0.79 m), which contained 0.24% Cu.The drilling results indicate the vein system extends significantly beyond the mine workings to at least 215 m to the northwest from the termination of the level 7 drift. Further drilling is warranted to test the structure for mineralized shoots. Due to the topography of the area, the vein system is covered by an increasing thickness of cover rocks along the northwest strike extension. This results in increased costs and difficulty in targeting the veins at depth. As such, the company will conduct follow-up drilling from underground. A permit application for extension of the 7 level of the mine and underground diamond drilling has been submitted to request approval for this program to proceed. The company has concluded that focus on extracting mill feed from the Lexington mine and processing in our facility are of highest priority.The company has received cost estimates to restart the company’s mill, and the consensus from contractors is that the facility is in excellent shape, and refurbishment will cost approximately $270,000 and take three to five weeks to be operable. It is anticipated that work will commence to restart the mill post-dewatering of the Lexington mine to coincide with anticipated mill feed from the Lexington mine.Lexington is just north of the border with Washington State. read more
Stay on target Contacting 911 isn’t always as easy as telling an emergency operator where it hurts.Google understands that sometimes callers are unable to verbally communicate—whether injured, in a dangerous situation, or suffering a speech impairment.So the tech titan is introducing a new way to share information about the help you need without speaking.The unnamed feature will be available in Google’s Phone app on Pixel and select Android devices.Simply tap on the “Medical,” “Fire,” or “Police” buttons during an emergency call to convey the type of crisis through an automated voice system.“That service works on-device, which means the information stays between you and emergency services, and the service functions whether or not you have a data connection,” Product Manager Paul Dunlop explained in a blog announcement.Once the program is activated, you can choose to speak directly to an operator.As anyone who’s ever watched a true-crime television show knows, a key ingredient to any 911 phone call is a location.Your whereabouts, which come directly from a mobile phone’s GPS, are often already shared with the operator.Google’s new feature, however, takes things a step further, providing similar location information, as well as the caller’s plus code—”another reliable way to help emergency services accurately locate” someone,” according to Dunlop.“Like the rest of the content shared with the operator using this feature, your location stays between them and emergency services,” he added.The automated voice service will roll out over the coming months to U.S. Pixel owners. Google did not provide any additional details about release dates or compatible handsets.“We’ve been collecting feedback from public safety organizations, including the National Emergency Number Association, to make this feature as helpful as possible,” the blog said. “And we look forward to continuing our collaboration with the emergency services community to make people safer.”More on Geek.com:Giant Bigfoot Statue Prompts 911 Calls in NC TownAn Astronaut Accidentally Called 911 From SpacePasserby Calls 911 on Fake Clark Griswold Christmas Display Drone Footage Helps Rescue Hawaiians Trapped By LavaGoogle Person Finder launched to help with Boston Marathon victims read more
Seven candidates for the 17th, 18th and 49th district seats debated the government’s role in turning around the economy during “A Get to Know the Candidates,” forum hosted by the Christian Chamber of Commerce of the Northwest this morning.About 40 people were in attendance as Rep.

MountainTimeis the second spin-off of ForbesLife, itself a lifestyle spin-off of Forbes.ForbesLife Executive Woman, a 125,000-circ quarterly, launched last fall. Welsh tellsFOLIO: that he had been incubating the MountainTime idea for a couple years andwas on the verge of launching before falling out with his original investorslast winter. During a lunch encounter with Forbes magazine group president andlong-time friend Jim Berrien, Welsh quickly found his new backer. Berrien toldhim “Forbes wants to do this,” Welsh says, and after a board meeting a deal wasstruck. “It was that fast,” says Welsh. “They acquired the whole deal, and me,and I will be remaining as publisher for a minimum of three years.” ‘Ganging Up’ in the MountainsForbesLifeMountainTime features a hybrid model of sorts, incorporating regional contentsupported primarily by national advertising. Never much interested in sellinglocal advertising, Welsh’s key to the national marketers was by ganging up adistribution system through local papers in the affluent ski towns, eachranging in circ from 5,000 to 10,000. “The localnewspapers, because of their circulation size, could not get nationaladvertising like Mercedes or Grey Goose Vodka,” says Welsh. “Even though theyhave the perfect demographics, it’s too small of a buy for 5,000 circulation.They want 150,000 and up. And I thought if I put every cool ski town in theWest together in a network and had this magazine inserted every two weeks inthe local newspapers, I could sell national ads.”Welsh has 18papers signed on as partners and he says six national advertisers have bought afull run of 20 issues.There is asmall amount of hyper-local coverage, as well as advertising. The magazine doesa split run, allowing it to inject a spread of editorial that’s locallytargeted to a specific town, as well as a two-page spread of local advertising,which the newspapers get to sell and keep the revenue. “We have nopostage, no subscriptions. This magazine would cost $25-$30 million to startif I hadn’t come up with this idea of inserting it into the local newspapers,”says Welsh, who declined to say what Forbes paid for MountainTime.According toWelsh, the magazine avoids directly competing with existing regional magazines—whichgenerally have much lower frequencies than MountainTime’s 20x schedule—by focusing on national advertisers.”We won’t touch real estate advertising, restaurants and the art galleries andstuff. It’s all upside for everybody.” And Welshshould know about the vagaries of advertising. His last venture, Budget Living,an offshoot of Budget Travel, which was sold to Newsweek in 1999, folded in2006 despite four years of circulation growth, ending its run at 500,000. “I thought we did everything right, but we werefighting against Goliaths with big circulations and big budgets. And theagencies, over and over, take the safe route, keeping their spending with thebig three publishers instead of spreading it around,” Welsh told the NewYork Times in April 2006. Don Welsh isreturning to the magazine game.The30-year-industry veteran and founder of the defunct Budget Living has partnered with Forbes for the launch of ForbesLifeMountainTime, a lifestyle publication targeting high-earning readers in theRocky Mountain region. The magazinewill be published 20 times a year and distributed through local newspapers inaffluent ski areas, including Vail, Aspen and Telluride. Circulation will be150,000. read more

Baltimore, Maryland –A federal jury has convicted three defendants for conspiring to participate in a violent racketeering enterprise known as the Black Guerilla Family (BGF) gang’s Greenmount Avenue Regime. Gerald Thomas Johnson, a/k/a Geezy, and Gzy Tha Prince, age 35; Kenneth Jones, a/k/a, K-Slay, and Slay, age 30; and, Marquise McCants, a/k/a Digga, age 25, all of Baltimore, Maryland, were convicted of conspiring to violate federal racketeering and drug trafficking laws.Johnson was also convicted of conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering, murder in aid of racketeering, possession of ammunition by a felon and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine. McCants was convicted of possession of a firearm by a felon.The following six co-defendants, also members of the BGF gang, had all previously pleaded guilty to conspiring to violate federal racketeering and drug trafficking laws;Wesley Jamal Brown, a/k/a Shike White and Wes, age 25;David Albert Hunter, a/k/a Lil Dave, and Dave, age 30;Montel Harvey, a/k/a Telly, Telephone, and Big Head, age 25;Kenneth Lee Faison, a/k/a Roscoe, age 28;Joseph Laurence Bonds, a/k/a/ Joe, and Yo Gotti, age 36; and,Norman Tyrone Handy, a/k/a Lil Norm, and Norm, age 23.The conviction was announced by Acting United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Stephen M. Schenning; Special Agent in Charge Daniel L. Board, Jr. of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives – Baltimore Field Division; Special Agent in Charge Gordon B. Johnson of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office; Commissioner Darryl De Sousa of the Baltimore Police Department; Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh; and Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby.“This case is emblematic of the ability of federal prosecution, using tolls such as RICO, to go after the violent gangs plaguing Baltimore City. The federal agents and task force officers worked long hours with the AUSAs to build this case which resulted in a successful outcome,” said Acting United States Attorney Stephen M. Schenning.“These convicted defendants are ruthless gang members, who acted with a total disregard for the sanctity of human life. Make no mistake, their cowardice behavior and violent criminal acts terrorized our communities,” said Daniel L. Board, Jr., ATF Baltimore Field Division Special Agent in Charge. “But today’s verdict is true justice for the involved victims and their families, and the citizens of Baltimore. This result is the culmination of nearly two years of relentless, dedicated work by ATF Baltimore, the Baltimore City Police Department and our formidable partnership with the United States Attorney’s Office.”According to the evidence presented at the two-month trial, the defendants were members of an organization known today as the BGF Greenmount Regime, a violent set, or “bubble,” of BGF. During the early years in which it operated, the gang called itself the Young Guerilla Family, or YGF, and consisted mostly of younger people who lived in the 2200, 2300, and 2400 blocks of Barclay Street and Guilford Avenue. YGF members sold drugs throughout the Greenmount Avenue corridor and committed murders, shootings, and armed robberies.In about mid-2007, YGF members took the BGF oath and became the BGF Greenmount Regime. According to evidence presented at trial, the BGF Greenmount Regime continued to sell drugs and commit violent acts, including murders, shootings and robberies, and by mid-2013 controlled the roughly rectangular area bordered by Greenmount Avenue to the east; Guilford Avenue to the west; 25th Street to the north; and Federal Street to the south, as well as certain offshoots east of Greenmount Avenue, including Mund Park and Cokesbury Avenue.Beginning in 2005, Johnson supplied drugs to the YGF members for further distribution and was the leader of YGF. During the conspiracy, the defendants distributed powder and crack cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, marijuana, and oxycodone. BGF Greenmount Regime members and associates purchased, maintained and circulated weapons and firearms for use in criminal activity by BGF members.In addition, the defendants committed acts of violence, including seven murders, shootings, stabbings, a home invasion robbery and other armed robberies. The violent acts were intended to further the gang’s activities, including intimidating witnesses to prevent them from cooperating with law enforcement, protecting the gang’s drug territory, financing the dues paid to BGF, and enforcing gang rules.For example, on January 9, 2007, Jones and another YGF member shot and killed an individual. Johnson authorized the killing of this individual in his capacity as a leader of YGF because the victim was rumored to be cooperating with law enforcement and Johnson believed the victim had stolen drugs from him. McCants also attempted to murder another individual on February 4, 2017, shooting them multiple times in the legs and back. Johnson, Jones and McCants face a maximum sentence of life in prison on the racketeering and drug conspiracies. Johnson also faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison for conspiring to commit murder in aid of racketeering and life in prison for murder in aid of racketeering. In addition, Johnson faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, and 10 years in prison for being a felon in possession of ammunition.Sentencing has been scheduled for Johnson on April 20, 2018 at 2 p.m.; McCants on May 9, 2018 at 2 p.m.; and Jones on May 10, 2018 at 2 p.m. at the United States District Court in Baltimore, Maryland. Acting United States Attorney Stephen M. Schenning commended the ATF, FBI, Baltimore City Police Department, Maryland Attorney General’s Office, and Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office for their work in the investigation. Mr. Schenning thanked Assistant U.S. Attorneys Peter J. Martinez and Christina Hoffman, who prosecuted the case. read more

Tight Supply Keeping Housing Market Below Potential Share The housing market still wasn’t living up to its potential in October 2017, with new data from First American highlighting a market performance gap that is the largest since November 2016. According to First American’s Potential Home Sales model for the month of October, potential existing-home sales got a 0.4 percent month-over-month bump, reaching a 5.89 million seasonally adjusted, annualized rate (SAAR). However, First American says the market for existing-home sales is underperforming its potential by 455,000 (SAAR) sales (7.7 percent).Market potential was on the upswing, increasing by an estimated 26,000 (SAAR) sales between September 2017 and October 2017. The October 2017 potential existing-home sales were down by 4.3 percent compared to the same month last year, however, although the October numbers were still 95.7 percent higher than the market potential low point from December 2008. As of October 2017, potential existing-home sales are 8.2 percent below the pre-recession peak of July 2005.First American Chief Economist Mark Fleming’s monthly analysis explained that continuing supply problems are going head-to-head with strong demand to shape the current state of the market. The number of homes for sale has declined on a year-over-year basis for the past 38 months in a row. Moreover, according to Realtor.com, active inventory is down by 7.6 percent and homes are selling 7.6 percent faster than a year ago. Per the First American Real House Price Index, affordability was down 9.6 percent in August 2017, as compared to August 2016.In Fleming’s October market analysis, he said:Tight supply and strong first-time home buyer demand continue to be the dominant factors driving the current state of the housing market. Existing homeowners remain reluctant to list their homes for sale for fear of not being able to find a home to buy, keeping supply levels low. At the same time, a healthy number of potential home buyers continue to enter the market, so house prices are increasing and affordability is declining. Historically low rates offer some relief in the form of strong borrowing power, however rates are expected to rise in the months to come, so if you are renting and thinking of buying, now is the time. in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, journal, Market Studies, News, Origination Affordability First American Inventory Shortage Mark Fleming Mortgages Potential Home Sales potential home sales model 2017-11-20 David Wharton November 20, 2017 634 Views read more

we know speaking up is incredibly hard Arguments are more likely to be week-long ruminations in your head till you get tired of thinking and let it go Of course it would be awfully inconvenient and time-consuming if we had to have long discussions every time we felt wronged: festering then cooling off till you calm down is much more practical At any rate it’s better than a terrifying conversation where you actually might have to articulate what you really think Almost nobody I know fights in person anymore (welcome to adulthood) Colleagues disagree on e-mail Spouses express themselves with curt texts When acquaintances clash on politics in these tumultuous times they simply block news feed and don’t ever hear from each other again Nothing gets addressed nothing ever gets sorted out Recently I suffered the ignominy of two very different disagreements which convinced me that in our deeply interconnected world relationships can turn to dust in mere minutes over a few fervent and not clearly thought through messages The first a 100 words exchanged with a friend on lingering resentments finished a 20-year association without a single conversation Even more uselessly the essence of the argument was lost in text translation with no one the wiser on what went wrong The second with my daughter’s ballet teacher who cancelled a class three Saturdays in a row right

she’d spammed my 1100 friends on Facebook and 400 followers on Instagram and her own 5000 contacts warning them not to listen to any lies being spread by a “crazed lunatic” I got calls from friends as far as Jakarta and a lawyer contact even offered to sue her for defamation on my behalf The lesson here is think before you type (especially when the person you’re responding to is far smarter at

not created for preschool children even though the current study found that many preschoolers still regularly watched superhero media Top News Contrary to the popular perception exposure to superhero culture may actually magnify aggressive and not defending behaviours in children a new study suggests Researchers from Brigham Young University in the US studied what it was that preschool-aged boys and girls took away from exposure to superhero culture “So many preschoolers are into superheroes and so many parents think that the superhero culture will help their kids defend others and be nicer to their peers” Professor Sarah M Coyne said Watch What Else Is Making News: “But our study shows the exact opposite Kids pick up on the aggressive themes and not the defending ones” said Coyne Coyne found that children who frequently engage with superhero culture are more likely to be physically and relationally aggressive one year later She even found the children were not more likely to be defenders of kids being picked on by bullies and were not more likely to be prosocial The findings do not suggest that parents need to totally disengage their children from superheroes researchers said “Have your kids involved in all sorts of activities and just have superheroes be one of many many things that they like to do and engage with” Coyne said Parents should not be afraid to point out the positives as well as the negatives of the media their children are consuming she said Coyne theorises that a reason why children may grasp on to the violent behaviour and not the prosocial behaviour of superheroes is in part because of the complexity of the superhero media The vast majority of superhero programmes are not created for preschool children even though the current study found that many preschoolers still regularly watched superhero media These programmes contain complex storylines that interweave violence and prosocial behaviour and preschoolers do not have the cognitive capability to pick out the wider moral message that is often portrayed Coyne also states that there is likely some additional desensitisation associated with consuming violent media Reduction in cognitive and emotional responses has been shown to be associated with media violence exposure That reduction of response to the victims of violence on the TV screen computer or tablet could be associated to a lack of empathy for the victims of violence on the playground or at school researchers said Participants in the study consisted of 240 children whose parents responded about the level of engagement their children had with superhero culture Children were interviewed and asked to identify 10 popular superheroes their favourite superhero and why they liked that superhero the

deferring the implementation of the General Anti-Avoidance Rules by two years while applying them only prospectively the commitment to a nationwide goods and services tax system from April 2016 and the enactment of a comprehensive bankruptcy code (hopefully borrowing from the Chapter 11 provisions of the US law enabling speedy reorganisation of failed businesses and securing of creditor

New Pension System having the same regulator (Sebi) for the securities and commodity derivatives markets governance reforms and establishment of a separate holding investment company for public-sector banks and corporatisation of state-owned ports it adds up to a fairly reformist and forward-looking budget Where the budget falls short is in coming out with any near-term measures to revive growth and investment Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has defended extending the timeline for meeting the 3 per cent of the GDP fiscal deficit target — to 2017-18 instead of 2016-17 — by citing the need to boost public investment given the private sector’s continued reluctance to invest The fact however is that the Centre’s total capital expenditure in 2015-16 is slated to rise by just Rs 14649 crore or 65 per cent over the budget estimates for the current fiscal As a result even the revenue deficit which should have fallen to 22 per cent of the GDP in the normal course is budgeted now at 28 per cent The main reason is subsidies on food and fertiliser — at Rs 197388 crore they are actually pegged higher than in 2014-15 While Jaitley’s budget speech has talked of targeting welfare schemes to the truly needy using the Jan Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile (JAM) platform there is no attempt at rationalisation leave alone a move to direct benefit transfers in respect of the two big-ticket subsidy items In the process the budget has deviated from the original fiscal consolidation roadmap apart from forcing resource-raising through avenues like the untimely hike in the service tax rate to 14 per cent at a time when consumer sentiment is already weak This budget’s test will come in about six months from now If investments fail to pick up there would be no alternative then to taking the tough decisions Jaitley has said the budget is just “one day in a year” and “we are a round-the-clock round-the-year government” He will be held to those words For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express
