No safety: Bengaluru, a ticking fire bomb 21.9.2019
Bengaluru: Bengaluru was shocked and horrified at the major fire that broke out at a branch of the Uco Bank on M G Road in the heart of the city on Wednesday, but it could be sitting on more such potential disasters as many of its buildings , both and government and private, don"t have adequate fire and safety measures in place. In many cases, the builders are said to have faked the Occupational Certificate (OC), which is issued by the BBMP for the sale of properties. Worryingly, as many as 23,000 apartment complexes of over 50 units each in the city don"t even have an OC, which is issued on the basis of the fire safety measures in place in a building, according to Mr. N R Ramesh, a BJP leader, who has approached the  Lokayukta, Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) and the ACMM court demanding that criminal action be taken against them.  He has also submitted a complaint to the Chief Secretary on the issue. The 23,000 apartment complexes have been developed by 368 builders in the city, ...

Bengaluru: 'Tech development leads to eco growth' 21.9.2019
BENGALURU: China seeks global technological superiority as it believes that it has the technology that will give it global influence and leadership, and not merely military power. On the other hand, the US being the current technology and military power, feels mortally threatened by China"s technological progress, said Arogyaswami J. Paulraj, an Emeritus Professor at Stanford University and recipient of Padma Bhushan, at the 60th Synergia Forum. With China"s excellence in wireless infrastructure, and emerging as a big contributor to global electronic manufacturing, China is marching towards technological empowerment. This is the opposite of the US where policy lifespan, under President Trump, is sometimes measured in days. The US has begun to go after China"s technology strengths (e.g. Huawei) through a variety of penal measures ending 40 years of Sino-American engagement that brought strategic and economic benefits to both sides, he said during a talk, "US-China Technology ...

Thiruvananthapuram: Graft charges to the fore 21.9.2019
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: With electioneering coming to an end for the Pala bypoll, both the fronts have scaled up the attack on each other in a bid to woo the voters.

Disqualification as a deterrent to killer hoardings 21.9.2019
The emotional plea of Subhasri"s father that his daughter"s death should be the last one caused by a hoarding on the road should ring in our ears till the menace ends. The difference between  knee-jerk outrage and a permanent solution, between a catalyst of change and a mere statistic, lies in stinging legal deterrence. Political functionaries wear their loyalty on their dangerous hoardings. Bigger the designation, larger the hoarding. When one bloke"s family wedding or birthday is another man"s funeral, its time to call out the nonsense. That a few parties have embarked on self regulation is some consolation. But it"s no match for the heady cocktail of money and muscle power, fuelled by sycophancy and ulterior motives for special favours. Go to the root of the issue. These are people who are already representatives of citizens or those currying favour for tickets to represent us. How dare their activities endanger our life? Why can"t we amend the Representation ...

Kerala Internet order a blow for freedom 21.9.2019
Justice P.V. Asha of the Kerala high court advanced the cause of fundamental human freedoms by seven league boots on Thursday, as she held that the right to have access to the Internet was a part of the fundamental right to education as well as privacy under Article 21 of the Constitution. She struck down the hostel rules of a Kozhikode college which banned the use of mobile phones for girl students between 6 pm and 10 pm and prohibited the use of laptop computers in the hostel premises.

SAEED NAQVI HARDLINE Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka have celebrated the creation of a new Buddhist entity in Ladakh. It is an optical illusion that Jammu and Kashmir has been neatly divided into Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh, that is, Hindu, Muslim and Buddhist entities.
