Bombay High Court seeks information on security provided to nuke scientists 27.6.2015 Asian Age: Mumbai
The Bombay high court on Friday asked the government of Maharashtra and the department of atomic energy to inform it within two weeks if proper security measures have been provided to nuclear scientists at their workplace. The division bench of Justices V.M. Kanade and B.P. Colabawala sought this information in reply to a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking formation of a special investigating team (SIT) to probe the deaths of several nuclear scientists in suspicious circumstances. Advocate Ashish Mehta, on behalf of social activist Chetan Kothari, had filed this PIL claiming that India was turning out to be a dangerous place to work for nuclear scientists. The petition had contended that over the last few years, a number of India’s nuclear scientists had been dying under mysterious circumstances and the police is classifying these deaths either as ‘unexplained’ or ‘suicides’. The judges observed that several decades ago many scientists had died because they were not provided with suits to protect ...

Super Mario Bros meets House of Cards: the European Council's badge system 25.6.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
If you thought bureaucracy in the European Union was complicated already you might need to sit down to hear about this ... When they arrive at the Justus Lipsius building in Brussels for a crucial summit on Thursday, Angela Merkel, David Cameron and the 26 other EU leaders will have no need of a badge. They will be given a pin instead. It provides access to all areas, including to an undisclosed safe room in the remote case of an emergency (a bit like in Homeland. Or Josh Lyman’s nuclear emergency card in the first series of The West Wing). Everybody else involved in the European Council (Euco) meeting has to make do with a badge. How good that badge is – how many doors it will open and how many floors of the building remain off-limits in spite of it – is largely communicated by its colour. Gold, for instance, gets you to the “80th floor” (which, depending on how you count it, is actually the seventh floor). This is where you want to be. It is where stuff gets decided. But the most important perk is ...

‘Red’ Ray Davies obituary 24.6.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest

My husband, “Red” Ray Davies, who has died aged 85, was a Caerphilly county councillor and tireless peace activist whose energy and passion for justice were unabated to the end.

Ray was born during the depression in the Welsh mining village of Llanbradach to George Davies, a collier, who was blacklisted for his union activities, and his wife Winifred (nee Bate). Ray experienced hunger and disease during his childhood, including TB and diphtheria. The fire in his belly was ignited by the loss of his mother, who died in childbirth, for lack of a hospital bed or a blood transfusion.
