Asian migrant crisis: calls for Asean joint action likely to be unanswered 28.5.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest

The summit’s Thai hosts – who have invited 17 countries including Malaysia, Indonesia, other Association of South-East Asian Nations (Asean) members and Australia – say they want immediate, collective steps to deal with the recent surge in Rohingya Muslim refugees fleeing Burma and economic migrants leaving ...

FIFA Scandal: Michel Platini confronts Sepp Blatter with resign demand 28.5.2015 DNA: Top News
UEFA president Michel Platini confronted FIFA leader Sepp Blatter at an emergency meeting of football chiefs today and said he called on him to stand down because of corruption scandals engulfing world football. Blatter refused and Platini made a public appeal at a press conference for member nations from around the world to vote against Blatter for the FIFA presidency in an election tomorrow. "I asked him to resign: enough is enough, Sepp. He listened to me but he told me it is too late," Platini told a press conference. "I say these things with tears in my eyes. I don't like it this way. But there are just too many scandals," he added. Other confederation leaders did not back his call, Platini added. Platini said he was "disgusted" and "sickened" by events which led to the arrest of seven FIFA officials at a Zurich hotel yesterday. Blatter is strong favourite to win a fifth term at a FIFA congress tomorrow. But Platini said he believed the Swiss official can be beaten. "Before the events of this week ...

Blindness finally revealed the hidden cause of my fatigue: MS 27.5.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Multiple sclerosis is difficult to diagnose, but a less-than-caring response from healthcare professionals made the job even harder

It all began when I couldn’t wake up one morning. As a freelance music journalist in the early 1990s, torpor seemed an unavoidable consequence of fun times (too many gigs, too many indulgent late nights).

Delhi government can appoint 99% officers: BJP 27.5.2015 DNA: India
Delhi government has power to recruit 99% of its staff except transfer and postings of IAS and IPS officers, BJP legislative leader Vijendra Gupta said on Wednesday while defending Centre's notification giving absolute powers to Lt Governor. Gupta alleged that more than 30,000 posts are lying vacant, but the Delhi government has not done anything in this regard. Speaking on the resolution seeking amendments to bring a legislation to create "NCT Public Service", leader of Opposition said that as Delhi is a Union Territory, such decisions can not be taken. "A change has to be made in the Constitution through Parliament for the creation of "NCT Public Service" as Delhi is Union Territory. You (government) are confusing the bureaucrats of Delhi. The government is not in the situation to run bureaucracy," Gupta said. Accusing the AAP government of being anarchists, he said it has collapsed the system.
