Obama Michelle sign bumper book deal

0 Comments

first_imgBarack and Michelle Obama. AFP file photoBarack and Michelle Obama have signed a deal to publish their memoirs with New York-based Penguin Random House, in a coveted contract reportedly worth tens of millions of dollars.America’s first African American president is already the author of two memoirs and a children’s book.He has frequently declared himself to have a “writer’s sensibility” and has said he does not want to write a conventional blow-by-blow account of his time in the White House.Michelle Obama’s memoir is likely to be just as eagerly anticipated.A descendant of slaves, she became the first African American first lady and garnered high approval ratings — to the point where she was arguably one of the country’s most respected and popular women.Penguin Random House said in a statement it has “acquired world publication rights for two books, to be written by president and Mrs Obama respectively.”- Record sum -The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but bidding for the high-profile double book deal topped $60 million, a record sum for US presidential memoirs, according to the Financial Times.Until now, the record for a US presidential memoir was $15 million paid for Bill Clinton’s “My Life,” released in 2004. George W. Bush received $10 million for “Decision Points” in 2010.Hillary Clinton reportedly received a $14 million advance for “Hard Choices,” her account of her time as secretary of state under Obama.The Obama deal was negotiated by Washington super-lawyer Robert Barnett, who represented both the Clintons and Bush.As part of the agreement, the company will donate one million books in the Obama family’s name to First Book, a charity, Penguin said.”We are very much looking forward to working together with President and Mrs Obama to make each of their books global publishing events of unprecedented scope and significance,” said Penguin Random House CEO Markus Dohle.The Obamas took a long vacation after Donald Trump was sworn in as president on January 20, and the former president has stuck by a pledge to keep a low public profile unless events threatening what he called America’s “core values” warranted that he speak out.He did just that in January, just days after Trump enacted his ban on travelers from seven mostly Muslim countries, and on all refugees. Obama expressed support for protests that sprang up nationwide against the now-suspended Trump travel ban.Whereas US presidents tend to leave town after leaving the White House, the Obamas are settling into a rented mansion in Washington’s posh Kalorama district until their younger daughter Sasha finishes high school. Their eldest daughter Malia will be attending Harvard in the fall.Another new neighbor in Kalorama is Trump’s daughter Ivanka, who has rented a house along with her husband Jared Kushner and their three children, near the Obamas.last_img read more

Translations in other languages of this and other works followed. Reams were written on his writings, and his personality. As a world citizen, Tagore aimed at bringing the ‘East’ and the ‘West’ together for an inclusive humanism. His was assumed to be the Voice of India—indeed of Asia and the colonised world. The Nobel Prize gave him the authority to speak, and the intellectual elite of many countries listened.

Their thirty-five essays arranged by region or language group inform us about translations, the impact of Tagore’s visits, and his subsequent standing in the world of letters. Tagore’s reception while often enthusiastic was not always adulatory, occasionally undergoing dramatic metamorphoses, and diverse political and social milieus and cultural movements responded to him differently. This nuanced global reception is for the first time dealt with comprehensively and systematically in this volume presented as a work of reference. These essays remind us that Tagore’s works keep being reprinted or retranslated for he continues to be relevant to modern readers.last_img read more

Does loving Hindus mean hating Muslims asks Mamata

first_imgKolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said those who accuse her of appeasing Muslims are friends of neither the Hindus nor the Muslims. “Some accuse me of (doing) Muslim appeasement. My question to them is whether loving Hindus means you have to hate Muslims. I respect and love all communities and religion. This country belongs to everybody,” she said. “Those who say I appease Muslims are friends of neither the Hindus nor the Muslims,” Banerjee, also the Trinamool Congress supremo, said while addressing a special prayer gathering on Red Road here to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights The BJP and some other organisations have been charging Banerjee with appeasement of Muslims for political reasons. The chief minister said it was due to her protest that the Niti Aayog meeting which was earlier scheduled for today was changed to tomorrow. “My question to the Central government officials is whether they are not aware that Eid is scheduled to be celebrated on June 16. Why the Niti Aayog meeting was kept on that day? I had written to the Central government urging it to change the date so that it doesn’t clash with Eid,” she said.

New TB drug inaccessible to many South Africans

0 Comments

first_imgOnly 3,000 patients worldwide have been treated with bedaquiline, and fewer than 200 with delamanid – only 2% of the 150,000 people around the world that could benefit.“MSF is treating some of the lucky few people in South Africa — and in fact the whole world – to receive access to strengthened treatment regimens including bedaquiline and delamanid,” said Dr. Jennifer Hughes of MSF in South Africa. “South Africa’s Department of Health has been a leader in accessing new DR-TB drugs, with over 1,750 patients receiving bedaquiline nationally since 2013.Ubuntu clinic (integrated TB/HIV) in Khayelitsha.Patients receiving bedaquiline in South Africa had 77% ‘culture conversion’ rates from TB-positive to negative, which is a promising sign that their treatment may ultimately be successful. Additional information from South Africa showed similar safety and efficacy even when bedaquiline was given together with antiretroviral therapy (ART) to TB/HIV co-infected people, another sign that this drug has the potential to transform DR-TB treatment in coming years.Delamanid, however, is not yet as widely available in South Africa.“TB is curable, yet it is now the infectious disease that kills the most people in the world,” said Dr. Grania Brigden, TB Advisor for the MSF Access Campaign. “We desperately need treatment that is easier for people to tolerate, that cures more people, and that is more available and affordable, otherwise it’s just deadly business as usual.” Doctors Without Borders (MSF), other treatment providers in South Africa and globally have found that the first new drugs in half a century to be developed for treating drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) are offering new hope to patients — but significant challenges remain to improve availability and affordability of these treatments.Current treatment regimens for DR-TB involve thousands of pills taken over two years, which can have devastating side effects and ultimately only work for 50% of people with multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB and 26% of people with extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB.Access to new drugs bedaquiline and delamanid along with ‘repurposed’ drugs — not specifically developed for TB but that have shown efficacy in treating TB — could be a significant step toward finding a shorter, more tolerable DR-TB regimen in the future.This is good news for South Africa, which has one of the highest burdens of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) in the world, with 30,000 new cases each year, over 18,000 people diagnosed and over 11,500 put on treatment in 2014.

Homeownership Rate Tumbles to 19Year Low

0 Comments

first_imgHomeownership Rate Tumbles to 19-Year Low Census Bureau Credit Availability Homeownership Rate Housing Affordability 2014-04-29 Tory Barringer Share The nation’s homeownership rate dropped in the first quarter to its lowest in nearly two decades as affordability challenges and tight credit conditions continued to hamper sales activity.According to figures released by the Census Bureau Tuesday, homeownership dropped last quarter to a rate of 64.8 percent, 0.4 percentage points lower than Q4 2013 and the lowest rate since the third quarter of 1995.Quarter-to-quarter, homeownership was down in all regions except the West, though at 59.4 percent, it remains lower in that region than in any other.At the national level, at least part of the blame for the falling homeownership rate can be laid on a combination of rising home prices and mortgage rates, which have combined to push housing out of the reach of a growing number of Americans. In fact, in a report released earlier this month, Zillow found that across the nation’s biggest major metros, nearly one-third of for-sale homes are considered “unaffordable” by historical standards for households earning the median income, and that number is expected to grow.Also challenging homeownership is today’s credit environment, which has many potentially qualified Americans convinced they’re ineligible to secure financing.Homeownership remained especially low among the Millennial age group, falling to a rate of 36.2 percent, with blame split between high debts, an elevated unemployment rate, and a perceived cultural shift away from the ideal of homeownership at a younger age.Also down was homeownership among those age 65 and older, which fell nearly a full percentage point to a still-high 79.9 percent.Mark Vitner, senior economist for Wells Fargo’s Economics Group, says the drop in homeownership rates among seniors may actually stem from a common trait they share with younger Americans: “We are seeing increased interest by Millennials and seniors in living closer to the inner city, where rental options are abundant.”Among white Americans, homeownership slipped half a percentage point to 72.9 percent, while the rate among blacks was up slightly to 43.3 percent. Among all other races, the government reported the homeownership rate was down to 55.8 percent.center_img April 29, 2014 430 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Government, Headlines, Newslast_img read more

Cypriots confident they can spot fake news survey says

0 Comments

first_imgAlmost five in ten Cypriots say they come across fake news every day or almost every day, while more than seven in ten say they can identify this type of disinformation.The first results of the flash Eurobarometer on fake news and online disinformation, which were released this week, show that fake news is widely spread across the EU with 83 per cent of respondents saying that this phenomenon is a danger to democracy. A full report will be issued in the coming weeks.The Eurobarometer survey was conducted via telephone in early February in all EU member states. Over 26,000 people were interviewed about their perception of fake news and their trust in news media sources.At least half of respondents in all 28 EU member states said they come across fake news at least once a week. While almost five in ten Cypriot respondents said they come across fake news every day or almost every day, 20 per cent said it was several times per month and 16 per cent said it was at least once a week.Almost one in three said they felt very confident at identifying fake news, while 48 per cent said they felt “somewhat confident”.In Cyprus, as in the other 27member states, on average, seven in 10 respondents perceive fake news to be a problem in their country. Around the same percentage feel that fake news is a problem for democracy in general.Thirty eight per cent of Cypriot respondents said they believe it the journalist’s job to stop fake news, 31 per cent said it was the task of national authorities but also of citizens themselves, followed by those who said that the responsibility lies with press and broadcasting management.Journalists (45 per cent), national authorities (39 per cent) and the press and broadcasting management (36 per cent) are the three top things that could stop the spread of fake news according to EU nationals.The most trusted source of information among Cypriot respondents was television, as more than seven in 10 said they consider it as such, followed by radio – 69 per cent – and printed newspapers and news magazines (59 per cent).Their least trusted source of information is video hosting websites and podcasts – as only around one third (34 per cent) said they totally trust or tend to trust these sources. The EU average is 27 per cent.The survey results indicate that age and level of education play an important role in which sources of information members of the public tend to trust.According to the overall assessment of the responses of all respondents, users aged between 15 and 24 tend to put more trust in video hosting websites and printed newspapers and news magazines. Users with a lower level of education, the survey said, tend to trust less online. Users with a lower level of education are more likely to say they come across fake news seldom or never, while they are also less confident identifying it, the report said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Georgiades transformation from asset to liability

0 Comments

first_imgBy Stelios OrphanidesFOLLOWING a prolonged fiscal slippage, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades became a valuable asset for the government in the months and years after the chaotic bailout of 2013 as Cyprus struggled to restore its severely damaged credibility.Now, five years after he took office, the economy is growing at the highest rate in a decade and has produced surpluses. While any other finance minister would be now basking in the sun, Georgiades may be about to battle for his political survival.Amidst the failure of the Cyprus Co-operative Bank, damning Audit Office reports and now witness testimonies, Georgiades is generally considered responsible for promoting a culture of favouritism and nepotism at the Co-op, or at the very least failing to prevent it. Even if the committee probing the breakdown of the Co-op, ultimately exonerates him of being legally responsible, the minister may end up a political liability.The above conclusion is the result of interviews taken from three persons familiar with the economy, banking and politics who all spoke on condition of anonymity with one citing fears of retribution. None of the interviewees held a position in the Co-op at any time and have therefore not been invited to testify to the committee set up by the attorney-general or are expected to be summoned.One of the three, a prominent economist, said that the committee will most likely fail to prove that the minister had directly intervened at any time in the state-owned Cyprus Co-operative Bank, especially in favour of his childhood friend Nicholas Hadjiyiannis.A middle-management finance ministry official who served as the liaison between the ministry and the Co-op, “is most likely representing the position of his superiors rather than his own”, he said in reference to a testimony given on August 6, by former board member Demetris Theodotou.“It is obvious that there was political interference,” he continued. “But the law provides that the committee’s hearings are to be held open to the public and witnesses are therefore afraid to talk freely. If you say a few things more, it is likely to going to make you some enemies.”The potential repercussions that keep people from speaking up are obvious, he explained. They are the rewards that may be denied to those speaking up but, on the other hand, are abundantly offered to those who look the other way.Several witnesses testified in the committee that there were fixed majorities in the board, which favoured Hadjiyiannis before and after he became the bank’s top executive. His predecessor, the former chief executive officer (CEO) Marios Clerides, openly said more than two weeks ago that he felt undermined by Hadjiyiannis.This, in turn, points – even if only indirectly – to the minister because he tolerated a situation which allowed a friend to get the highest paying job in a bank that taxpayers kept afloat for five years with €1.7bn.Hadjiyiannis, it emerged at the committee hearings, was not even included in a shortlist of candidates for the position Clerides abandoned in 2015, fed up by the board’s meddling in executive affairs. Even amid reservations about whether Hadjiyiannis was fit and proper for the job, the finance ministry official Dionysis Dionysiou was behind “a lot of pressure” to support Hadjiyiannis in becoming CEO, according to ex-board member Theodotou. And all this followed a recommendation from Andreas Mouskallis, a former Akel deputy, football coach and representative of the former Co-op owners whose shareholding was diluted to below 1 per cent following decades of mismanagement.“Because in certain cases, the board membership was the only or main source of income (of directors), this was taken advantage of,” said the anonymous economist, describing how the ruling political forces had directors toe the line.“Testimonies so far do allow reaching conclusions, including how some people got there and how they subsequently acted,” the source added. “Hadjiyiannis agreed to go there and run the Co-op by bullying others. This has nothing to do with good corporate governance.”Another source, an academic, said that the perceived political interference in the Co-op had not gone unnoticed at the European Central Bank’s (ECB) Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM) and together with the slow pace in the reduction of the bank’s non-performing loans, this was a source of irritation.“It is one thing for the (co-operatives) to become state owned in 2013, it is another not to follow any corporate governance protocol and make political appointments without explicit searches for qualified people to deal with a challenging task,” the academic said.He added that while the Co-op’s model was based on ethical banking, the lender hired in 2015 and 2016 well-paid staff in an attempt to expand into corporate banking without having a specific strategy for this.With all the above occurring while the finance minister oversaw the operations in the bank, “the government’s credibility will be suffering,” the academic source said.An asset manager told the Sunday Mail that while the Co-op’s situation was difficult immediately after the banking crisis as a result of its weak loan portfolio, the Central Bank of Cyprus had failed to intervene by being stricter in approving government-proposed appointments and so reduce political influence in the bank.“While there wouldn’t be a dramatic change even if you had hired (John) Hourican,” much may be blamed on the central bank which didn’t have a “hands-on” approach, which in turn left political interference unchecked, he said.The asset manager was referring to Bank of Cyprus’ CEO, John Hourican, who aggressively pursued a reduction in its non-performing loans, as a result of which they were slashed to €8.3bn last March, roughly 55 per cent of what they were in December 2014.The failure of a second bank in five years — after Laiki — further blemishes the reputation of Cyprus’ financial sector, wrecked by the massive depositor losses in 2013.“I am told by lawyers and accountants that they avoid bringing funds to Cyprus as they don’t see a properly functioning banking system on the island,” the asset manager explained. “We need to establish one from scratch by giving the central bank more say. While the Co-op turbulence may be over, the stain is still there.”And for that, the finance minister must take his share of the blame.Georgiades was appointed in April 2013, days after Cyprus finally accepted its onerous bailout. The discipline in complying with its terms in the initial phase quickly paid off. In June 2014 — just 15 months after the bail-in on deposits — a triumphant finance minister could announce Cyprus’ first successful test of international markets with the issue of a government bond.But it was also a fateful decision which sent signals in various directions. It reduced the international lenders’ leverage to enforce fundamental economic reforms because it also reduced the island’s reliance on bailout funds. And it also increased the appetite of the unions to successfully claw back perks and pay rises that had been put on hold or reduced in the immediate wake of the banking crisis.In the process Georgiades seemed unable to prevent his transformation from a fiscal hawk to the flunkey of a populist president who could not resist the pressure of organised groups to the public finances.The finance minister, who never misses an opportunity to decry “the practices of the past” which led to the financial crisis, last month had to make €128m in taxpayers’ money available to compensate Co-op workers.You May LikeFamilyMindedA Quick Lesson in Baby Sign LanguageFamilyMindedUndoBrainfun.meTop Best Train Trips in the WorldBrainfun.meUndoPhoto StickA “Photo Catastrophe” Could Be Brewing In Your ComputerPhoto StickUndo Urgent work planned on collapsed section of Nicosia wallsUndoClear winner in first round of Kition bishop voteUndoWidowers threaten legal action over pensionsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Lyanna Stark = Jon Snow The season six finale along with a HBO infographic all but confirmed this to be true However it still has not been explicitly stated Luckily the show seems to be moving toward revealing the full story surrounding Jon’s birth with a throwaway line in Sunday’s episode serving as a thinly veiled reference to the fact that he is actually a trueborn Targaryen The final scene of “Eastwatch” saw Jon and six companions set out into the wilds beyond the Wall But before we find out how the King in the North fares in his quest to capture a wight let’s recap what we know about his true heritage and how that may change things going forward HBO Who is Jon Snow Jon has come a long way from the brooding teen we met in the Game of Thrones pilot After leaving Winterfell where he was long mistreated by Catelyn Stark for being her husband Ned’s bastard he spent the show’s first five seasons rising through the ranks of the Night’s Watch eventually becoming Lord Commander However following his murder at the hands of his sworn brothers and subsequent resurrection Jon left his post at Castle Black to retake Winterfell from the Boltons He was named King in the North in the season six finale and has since been on a mission to convince the people of Westeros that their true enemy is not each other but rather the army of the dead Who is Jon Snow’s mother Jon along with nearly everyone else in Westeros believes he is the illegitimate son of Ned Stark and a lowborn woman But thanks to flashback scenes in which Bran Stark witnessed Ned’s final conversation with Lyanna following his and Howland Reed’s defeat of Arthur Dayne and the Targaryen kingsguard at the Tower of Joy viewers know this isn’t the case Jon is actually the child of Ned’s younger sister Lyanna who made her brother promise to conceal Jon’s identity out of fear that Robert Baratheon her former fiancé would kill Jon if he found out the truth See how the Stark and Targaryen family trees connect Photo Illustration by James Kim for TIME; HBO Who is Jon Snow’s father Although Thrones has yet to definitively acknowledge the identity of Jon’s father HBO released an infographic following the Tower of Joy reveal that seemed to confirm he is the child of Rhaegar Targaryen Rhaegar was the eldest son of the Mad King who had two children with his wife Elia Martell (the older sister of Oberyn) He was killed during Robert’s Rebellion by Robert Baratheon for allegedly kidnapping and raping Lyanna who had been betrothed to Robert However some fans have long suspected that the two were actually in love and ran away to be together In the books multiple characters Jorah Mormont Jaime Lannister and even Ned have positive opinions of Rhaegar and hint that he did not take Lyanna against her will The show has also slipped in some clues to this point Oberyn Martell When Oberyn arrived in King’s Landing to attend Joffrey Baratheon’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell he had a conversation with Tyrion Lannister in which they discussed Rhaegar’s marriage to Elia “The last time I was in the capital was many years ago another wedding My sister Elia and Rhaegar Targaryen the Last Dragon” he said My sister loved him she bore his children swaddled them fed them at her own breast Elia wouldn’t let the wet nurse touch them And beautiful noble Rhaegar Targaryen left her for another woman” His last comment seems to suggest that Rhaegar left Elia to build a relationship with Lyanna not take her hostage Barristan Selmy “Rhaegar never liked killing he loved singing” Ser Barristan once told Daenerys Targaryen Barristan was not only extremely close to Rhaegar but had a reputation as one of the most honorable men in the Seven Kingdoms It seems likely that he wouldn’t have continued to speak highly of Rhaegar unless the rumors Robert spread were not true Arthur Dayne Ser Arthur was the best swordsman in Aerys II “The Mad King” Tagaryen’s kingsguard However instead of sending him into battle during Robert’s Rebellion Rhaegar stationed him at the Tower of Joy to protect Lyanna This implies that Rhaegar loved Lyanna and was willing to do anything to keep their unborn child safe Helen Sloan—HBO This Means Jon Snow is a Targaryen With Rhaegar as a father Jon would be the only half Stark half Targaryen in existence But does any of this matter if he’s still technically a bastard As it so happens that may not be the case While reading one of Sam’s Citadel books aloud in “Eastwatch” Gilly noted that a High Septon Maynard had issued an annulment for a “Prince Ragger” an apparent mispronunciation of Rhaegar and remarried him to someone else at the same time in a secret ceremony in Dorne If this person was Lyanna it would make Jon a trueborn Targaryen and give him an even greater claim to the Iron Throne than Daenerys MORE: To stay up to date on everything Game of Thrones follow our all-encompassing Facebook page and sign up for our exclusive newsletter Are Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen related Thrones may be setting up a romance between Jon and Daenerys but if Jon really is the blood of the dragon the two are pretty closely related Rhaegar was Dany’s older brother which would make her Jon’s aunt However the Targaryens have a long history of incest having spent over 300 years wedding brothers to sisters to keep their bloodline pure With that being said a union between aunt and nephew seems within the realm of possibility Who knows about Jon Snow’s parents Thanks to his ability to see the past Bran Stark is the only character at this point who seems to be aware of the truth of Jon’s heritage However considering the fact that Howland Reed was the only survivor of the showdown at the Tower of Joy other than Ned Stark he may also be in the know

Princess Diana in Paris France when Dianas chauffeured Mercedes hit a pillar inside an underpass just after midnight killing her her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed and her driver Henri Paul As the news quickly circulated theories about the causes of the crash also spread with some veering into conspiracy Did the ruthless paparazzi in hot pursuit of the car cause the driver to panic Had the royal family murdered her to avert an embarrassing marriage Twenty years later these conspiracy theories still persist Ive taught classes and researched the nature of conspiracy theories for over a decade and Im especially interested in the role of logic in these conspiracies how its used to warp and concoct stories that explain extraordinary events In the end our reasons for entertaining conspiracy theories about luminaries whether its the princess of Wales or John F Kennedy often have more to do with our lives than theirs What people were saying Shortly after Princess Dianas death numerous notions started to circulate suggesting conspiracies against her Some suggested that MI6 the British Secret Intelligence Service caused the crash by blinding Dianas driver with a strobe light The thinking went that the royal family wanted to prevent Princess Diana from marrying her boyfriend Fayed the son of a prominent Egyptian billionaire (Others say that Diana was pregnant with Dodi Fayeds baby) Some have also been suspicious about the emergency response to the accident The initial call notifying emergency services came at 12:26 am; she arrived at the Pitié-Salptrière Hospital in Paris
