Women will get half the seats on village councils in big equality shake-up, says India's first female president India's new Congress-led coalition government is to press for a radical new law to reserve a third of the elected seats in parliament and in state legislatures for women.

Australia send Symonds home 4.6.2009 The Guardian -- Front Page
• Australian all-rounder sent home for an alcohol-related incident • Latest breach of team rules could end his international career Ricky Ponting today expressed his disappointment with his troubled all-rounder Andrew Symonds after Cricket Australia sent him home on the eve of the World Twenty20 for "breaking a number of team rules related to alcohol and other issues". The Australia captain refused to reveal the exact nature of Symonds' latest misdemeanours and said that any decision about his future was in the hands of the Australian board. But it is hard to see how Symonds, who turns 34 next week and whose CV includes a number of alcohol-related incidents, can now resume his international career. Indeed, there is already talk about ...

GCSE pupils given last year's exam 4.6.2009 The Guardian -- Front Page
Exam board admits nearly 2,000 students were wrongly given the 2008 reading and listening papers Nearly 2,000 pupils sitting French GCSE exams today were given last year's paper, sparking chaos in exam halls up and down the country. The exam board Edexcel admitted an error meant that pupils taking two applied GCSE French papers were given the 2008 paper. Some students could have practised on the old paper prior to taking the exam. The papers, one a reading and one a listening exam, count for 40% of pupils' overall grades. One invigilator, who oversaw the exam this morning and contacted the Guardian, said the problem was spotted after it was noticed that some pupils had been given a paper with 34 questions, while others had 28.

Sats examiners wrongly disqualified 4.6.2009 The Guardian -- Front Page
Exams chaos for second year running as inaccurate dummy paper is used to grade markers The marking of Sats tests has been hit by delays this week after problems in the quality-checking of examiners led to hundreds of markers being wrongly barred from taking part, the Guardian has learned. The Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA), the agency that was largely blamed for failing to prevent the collapse of last year's Sats, today admitted it had provided flawed dummy papers to check how accurately markers were grading papers. The problems caused large numbers of markers to be rejected, triggering a recruitment shortfall. Edexcel, the exam board contracted to deliver the tests, was forced to step up its recruitment and ask existing ...

'As eloquent as any Obama performance' 4.6.2009 The Guardian -- World Latest
Obama's speech was a beautifully honed tool chipping away at a solid wall of Islamic cynicism and disillusion had one overarching purpose: to reset the relationship between the United States and the Islamic world. And in his determination to achieve that end, Obama punched the reset button as often and as hard as he could. Again and again, he tried to take his audience by surprise and penetrate the thick layers of cynicism and disillusion that have accumulated over decades in the Muslim world. He talked about the "occupation" of Palestinian lands, a legal fact but an arresting word when coming from the mouth of an American president. He also spoke of 60 years of Palestinian pain and dislocation, dating that suffering to 1948, the very ...

Two women caught filming near border may be used as bargaining chips in nuclear weapons negotiations Two American journalists were expected to go on trial in North Korea today facing charges of committing "hostile acts" for which they could spend up to 10 years in one of the country's notorious labour camps.
