Sunnis, Kurds abandon Iraq parliament after no replacement for Maliki named 2.7.2014 FirstPost: World

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Sunnis and Kurds walked out of the first session of Iraq's new parliament on Tuesday after Shi'ites failed to name a prime minister to replace Nuri al-Maliki, dimming any prospect of an early national unity government to save Iraq from collapse. The United States, United Nations, Iran and Iraq's own Shi'ite clergy have pushed hard for politicians to come up with an inclusive government to hold the fragmenting country together as Sunni insurgents bear down on Baghdad. The leader of the al Qaeda offshoot spearheading the insurgency, the Islamic State, has declared a "caliphate" in the lands it has seized in Iraq and Syria

Stakeholders flay proposed Juvenile Justice Bill 2014 1.7.2014 deccanherald.com
The stakeholders at a discussion on re-enacted Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Bill 2014, opposed the proposal on Child Welfare Committee (CWC) in each district being chaired by the Deputy Commissioner. Speaking at the consultation meeting on the Bill organised by the Padi, Campaign Against Child Labour - Karnataka (CACL-K) here on Tuesday, UNICEF Consultant and Rector of Shanthi Sandesha Resources and Development Centre Sr Dulcine said that in the JJ Act 2000, the CWC had five members wherein all come from civil society and representatives of NGOs. However, the new Bill proposes to introduce bureaucrats in the committee with Deputy Commissioner as Chairman and DHO as its member along with representatives of NGOs. The proposal should not be accepted as it would be impossible for the DC to concentrate on the care and protection of children with his hectic schedule. At the same time, Juvenile Justice Board and CWC is a judicial body under the Act. The term of the committee is fixed for ...

Dark love in a dark city 1.7.2014 Asian Age: Books
Photo: Bunny Smith We met in a café in Khan Market, New Delhi. It could have been the same café where Idha, the protagonist of Deepti Kapoor’s A Bad Character, meets the charismatic, dangerous young man who exposes her to the thrilling pleasures of the city, and her body. It could have been the very same café because as I took a tour of the place, the words in her book came alive. The words about how you are immune to ‘the thousands of horns and voices of the city, the scorching heat, the frying food, the sewer smells, exhaust fumes and staring people’. As long as you are inside, in the cool of the AC ‘with the windows politely shuttered, you forget the city’. But the moment you step outside, the city crawls onto you. The café was her place of choice, perhaps, because she wanted me to realise that the words in her book are more than just words; that they not only tell the story of Idha, but also chronicle the city that Delhi is, inside and outside the café. “Delhi has been such an important part of my ...

The Nudie Tee: the new embodiment of sexism in sport 1.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Many thought sporting chauvinism could sink no lower. Then came the golf accessory manufactured to resemble naked, armless and decapitated female bodies

Was it the play on words that made all those marketing folk agree that this "Nudie Tee" was the perfect gift for golfers? How they must have congratulated themself that a "tee" was not just a tiny piece of plastic driven into the ground to support your balls but, you know, the last syllable of the word "nudi-ty".

Few products underline the fact that golf is still largely considered a man's game than a tee designed to look like a naked female torso. Such a small, insignificant thing that you can knock the head off it with just one swing of your big manly arms.
