Multilateralism with a strengthened UN vital for small countries – Cape Verde

29 September 2009Multilateralism, with a revitalized United Nations playing the pivotal role, is vital for combating a host of ills threatening West African countries, such as drugs, arms and human trafficking, organized crime and terrorism, Cape Verde said today. “In this context in which states and democratic processes are threatened by factors from outside, multilateralism is an indispensable protection and essential resource,” Cape Verde Delegation Chairman Antonio Pedro Monteiro Lima told the General Assembly on the sixth day of its 64th annual General Debate.“Within this framework the UN remains the central element as the collective conscience of the community of nations, devoted to coordinating our common action, favouring consensual and federative solutions.“The revitalization of the United Nations system thus seems a necessity of our time, allowing for the participation of all at the expense of unilateralism, consolidating its effectiveness in favour of common interests and obtaining solutions that respond to the aspirations of the most vulnerable and of present and future generations.”He said Cape Verde and other West African States are confronting organized crime, “which in our regions is finding fertile ground for its criminal investments due to the fragility of our economies and the vulnerability of our emerging democracies and generally the weak response capacity of our States in the face of this wholesale threat.”He cited support already being given by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) to help the region coordinate its efforts to confront “this tremendous challenge.”Mr. Monteiro Lima said Cape Verde was already making its contribution to a strengthened UN by being one of the eight pilot countries for the “Delivering as One” project aiming at a single programme, single budget, single office and single leader for all the UN agencies, funds and programmes. This pilot project is “on the path to success,” he added. Togo also called for international help to fight the drug trade, saying it was destabilizing the West African sub-region.“In view of the breadth of this scourge, it is more than certain that no single country can fight it and hope to put an end to it along,” delegation chairman Kodjo Menan told the General Assembly.“That is why my country appeals for international cooperation, notably assistance from countries with the capacity to help and from competent organizations to eradicate the phenomenon in order to restore the climate of security that is essential for development,” he added, noting that Togo was waging a struggle without mercy against the traffickers in cooperation with its neighbours despite its scant means.Mali also stressed the importance of international support to help developing countries overcome current crises.“The current multifaceted crises – economic, food, energy, environment – have plunged hundreds of millions of people into poverty and exacerbated the deprivations already afflicting them due to unemployment and the high cost of access to basic services,” Ambassador to the UN Oumar Daou told the Assembly.“The state of the most vulnerable layers of society, notably women and children in developing countries, call for the attention of the international community and must figure at the heart of international concerns…“The breadth and complexity of the challenges that must be met cannot distract the international community from the responsibilities that are incumbent on it.”As the forces of interdependence become stronger around the world, the more the necessity of the UN increases, the Holy See said at the high-level debate on its final day.“The need to have an organization capable of responding to the obstacles and increasing complexity of the relations between peoples and nations thus becomes paramount,” Archbishop Celestino Migliore said, acknowledging the difficulty of building the world body to be a “true centre for harmonizing the actions of nations.” read more

Senators warn NFL to drop blackout rule voluntarily or risk congressional action

WASHINGTON – Senators from both parties warned the National Football League Thursday to get rid of a 4-decade-old TV “blackout” rule or risk congressional action to restrict the league’s lucrative antitrust exemption, which allows NFL teams to negotiate radio and television broadcast rights together.The blackout rule, which bars home games from being televised in a local market if they have not sold out, is unfair to fans who have helped the league reap billions of dollars in revenue from broadcast rights to games that are among the most-watched programs on TV, lawmakers said.In return for their loyalty, “fans in the public are often treated like a fumbled football,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. “When places like Buffalo, New York, fail to sell out its 74,000-person stadium, the Bills game is blacked out for local fans.”The Federal Communications Commission voted this fall to stop enforcing the NFL’s blackout policy, but the action did not end blackouts, which are written into the NFL’s private contracts with broadcast and cable companies.Blumenthal and other lawmakers at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing said Thursday the blackout rule has long outlived its usefulness. The rule was adopted in the 1970s to encourage ticket sales at NFL games, which now routinely sell out at stadiums across the country.“The simple fact is that these rules only serve to benefit sports leagues and their member teams at the expense of the hardworking fans who support them so loyally through their money, time and passion,” said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.During last year’s NFL playoffs, fans of the Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers came close to experiencing blackouts when those games had not sold out just days before kick-off, McCain said. The blackouts were averted when local businesses bought tickets to bring the total above the NFL’s required threshold.A bill co-sponsored by Blumenthal and McCain would revoked the league’s antitrust exemption unless it removes the blackout rule.The senators made it clear at Thursday’s hearing that they would prefer not to enact a bill. Blumenthal and other lawmakers urged the NFL to act on its own.“I think they’d become heroes rather than the opposite, which they are now,” Blumenthal said.Gerard Waldron, a lawyer who represents the NFL, said the proposed bill would harm the people it intends to help — the fans — by undermining “the complex business and legal structure that allows the NFL to be the only professional sports league that offers all of its regular-season game to viewers at no charge” through over-the-air broadcasts.Without the certainty of paid attendance provided by a blackout rule, NFL games are likely to migrate from free broadcast TV to pay TV such as cable and satellite, Waldron said.The bill also aims fix a problem that largely does not exist, Waldron said, noting that no NFL games have been blacked out this season and only two games were blacked out in 2013. Without threats of a blackout, advertisers may not be willing to spend as much money to sponsor NFL games, he said.“The key factor that distinguishes the NFL from other types of programming is its ability consistently to deliver a mass audience at a fixed time,” he said.But David Goodfriend, chairman of the Sports Fans Coalition, an advocacy group, said the government should not support “anti-fan activities” by professional sports leagues such as the NFL.“When a sports league receives a public benefit” such as the antitrust exemption and other subsidies, “the fans should get a fair return or the subsidy should go away,” Goodfriend said.Lawmakers at the Thursday’s hearing appeared generally sympathetic to Goodfriend’s argument, but two Minnesota senators told him should have done a better job researching his audience. A Green Bay Packers fan, Goodfriend wore a Packers tie to the hearing — fact noted by Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken of Minnesota.“It might not have been your smartest move, given that half of the senators here are from Minnesota,” Klobuchar told Goodfriend.Follow Matthew Daly on Twitter: by Matthew Daly, The Associated Press Posted Dec 4, 2014 11:55 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Senators warn NFL to drop blackout rule voluntarily or risk congressional action read more

Taiwan proposes plan to ease South China Sea tensions

first_imgTAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Taiwan President Ma Ying-jeou laid out a plan Tuesday to ease tensions in a vast, resource-rich Asian ocean where China has chafed against its neighbors by expanding islets with landfill to solidify its claims in the region.Ma’s initiative, announced Tuesday at an Asia-Pacific research forum in Taipei, calls for setting aside sovereignty disputes over the South China Sea and jointly exploring for resources. Taiwan is also prepared to join related dialogues and mechanisms for South China Sea cooperation, the president said. Taiwan, China, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines claim all or parts of the 3.5 million-square-kilometer (1.4 million square-mile) South China Sea. The ocean ranges from Taiwan’s southern tip southwest to Singapore.In recent months China has made other claimants and their common ally the United States bristle by landfilling tiny islets, a way to extend its reach. The tropical sea is rich in oil, natural gas and fisheries. It also holds international marine shipping routes.In a sign of recent tensions, Beijing filed a formal complaint with the United States this week after an American spy plane flew over one islet, and Japan has pledged to help Vietnam and the Philippines with defense as China’s presence grows.But other South China Sea claimants are unlikely to react openly to Taiwan’s initiative as they lack diplomatic relations with Ma’s government. China claims sovereignty over Taiwan itself and uses economic clout to bar other nations from exchanges that cast Taiwan as a nation.In 2012 Ma proposed a peace initiative for settling disputes in the East China Sea, which is claimed by his government as well as China and Japan.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Survey Explores Shopping Patterns Among Homebuyers

first_img December 24, 2013 396 Views The “”National Association of Realtors””: sent out a national survey in July, 2013 to buyers who had made their purchase within the previous year. The data collected from 8,767 respondents brings fresh insights into all phases of the home buying process, and helps recognize emerging trends. The study was conducted to help real estate professionals understand the needs and expectations of their clients.What did the study uncover?[IMAGE]The first step in the process for 42 percent of buyers was searching online for properties. Use of the Internet to search for homes rose slightly to 92 percent. Eighty-eight percent of buyers purchased their home through an agent or broker–a share that has steadily increased from 69 percent in 2001. Meanwhile, 42 percent of buyers found their agent through a referral from a friend or family member, and 12 percent used an agent they had worked with before. While the search time for buyers stayed the same as in previous years, the selling time for sellers dropped substantially. The typical homebuyer searched for 12 [COLUMN_BREAK]weeks and viewed 10 homes. Thirty-eight percent of recent homebuyers were first-time buyers, which is less than the historical norm of 40 percent.The typical seller lived in their home nine years. The median tenure has increased from six years in 2007. Recent sellers typically sold their homes for 97 percent of the listing price, and 47 percent reported reducing the price at least once. Eighty-five percent sellers reported that their home was listed or advertised on the multiple listing (MLS) website, and 88 percent of sellers were assisted by a real estate agent. Nine percent sold their home without an agent–usually to avoid paying a commission; of that group, 40 percent said they knew the buyer prior to selling.Thirteen percent of respondents had to delay selling their home because the value of their home was less than their mortgage.The share of brand new homes sold was only 16 percent. These buyers wanted to avoid renovations, and liked customizing their home. Buyers who chose previously owned homes purchased their home for a better price and value–and for charm and character, they said.The typical buyer was 42 years old; the typical first-time buyer was 31, and the typical repeat buyer was 52. As for financing, 88 percent of buyers financed their recent home purchase, typically financing 90 percent of the cost.The study also revealed that buyers continue to face tighter credit standards than in previous years. This year’s report showed an elevated share of married couples with combined incomes at 66 percent–the highest share since 2001, and reduced levels of single buyers compared to last year.

Lewis Hamilton has no plans to gift any wins to Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas despite having a fifth Formula One championship sewn up Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas celebrate Reuters The Briton has won nine of the 19 races so far this season while Bottas who has dutifully obeyed team orders to help Hamilton and endured agonising bad luck while leading has yet to triumph Asked at the Brazilian Grand Prix whether he would let the Finn win were he in a position to do so Hamilton told reporters that would be a decision for Mercedes to make “I don’t think he is going to want that he is going to win one on his own in his own way” added the 33-year-old who clinched the drivers’ title with two races to spare in Mexico last month Bottas has won three races since he joined Mercedes last year as a replacement for retired 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg He started on pole position in Brazil and Abu Dhabi the last two races of the season last year and won the latter with Hamilton second Hamilton hailed Bottas’s contribution after winning the championship in Mexico and has emphasised how well they get on as teammates “One of the most difficult moments of the year was in Russia for me” he had said in Mexico City referring to a race in which Bottas was asked to move aside to let him win “We have such a huge respect for each other. it’s the greatest partnership in terms of respect and teamwork from drivers that has ever existed in Formula One probably” Mercedes can seal the constructors’ championship at Interlagos for the fifth year in a row providing Ferrari do not score 13 points more than them and that will be the team’s absolute focus Hamilton has won only once before in Brazil in 2016 and in those years where he has wrapped up the title with races to spare has failed to triumph afterwards The Briton was third in Texas and then fourth in Mexico last month after racking up four wins in a row as he sensed the title beckoning “If you look at the last two races you will see that we kind of struggled so I don’t really have an idea of how it is going to be in the next couple of races” he said “It’s difficult to explain why it has been tough for us particularly in this last one but I really hope the car this weekend feels more normal and we are more competitive “We still have a job to do on this weekend to win the constructors title so the focus remains absolutely the same It’s not always easy to find solutions There’s a lot of work to do even at this point of the year” "Of course (Viswanathan) Anand is a legend and it will be nice to overtake him but I (would rather) want to be the next (first) Vidit" When someone makes such a bold statement with complete nonchalance you pause for a second You are taken aback After all the comparison that had been drawn was with the greatest Indian chess player of all time and arguably among five of the greatest the world has ever seen But the very next moment when you realise the gravity of the statement you are overwhelmed by a sense of respect You admire the conviction and the will to carve out a niche and name for oneself free from the burden of comparisons with the greats The admiration gets greater when you see that the individual making that statement is no more than 23-years-old He is the third-highest-ranked chess player in the country only the fourth Indian to bag the coveted 2700 Elo rating the player who had fought the marauding Magnus Carlsen to a stalemate in the recently-concluded Isle of Man Open he is in more ways than one the future of Indian chess He is none other than Vidit Gujrathi On Monday Gujrathi was in Mumbai where he was felicitated as the ‘Sportsman of the Year’ by the Sports Journalists’ Association of Mumbai and it gave Firstpost an opportunity to catch up with him In a candid chat the chess ace shared stories of his growth and development as a chess champion his method of preparation before a big match the duel with Carlsen the comparison with Anand and much more "If I keep playing as I have been in the past few months it is very much possible (becoming the next Anand)" Gujrathi said before reminding us of the merit of having an identity of his own One would perhaps remember Gujrathi had been unbeaten at the World Team Championship and had the better of Le Quang Liem in the FIDE World Cup He gained eight Elo points at Isle of Man and took his world ranking to 34th The year 2017 has indeed been pretty rewarding so far for the Nashik lad Vidit Gujrathi taking on Magnus Carlsen at the Isle of Man Open Chesscom/Maria Emelianova Every generation looks for a hero equal to or bigger than the one the generation before and so comparisons often become unavoidable Indeed Gujrathi’s sublime performances over a considerable period of time have occasioned comparisons with the great Anand; it is probably as inevitable as Virat Kohli being compared to Sachin Tendulkar and Tendulkar himself being compared to Don Bradman But Gujrathi looks more like the precocious Tendulkardispatchingthe legendary Abdul Qadir over his head for a six Like the 16-year-old Tendulkar Gujrathi is not ruffled by the big names whether he is facing them across the board or being compared with one This was borne out also by his gritty performance against Carlsen at Isle of Man last month The two players agreed to a peace treaty after completing 30 moves It was certainly the biggest achievement of Gujrathi’s career so far "It was definitely a great game Before this tournament I was playing in the World Cup and the level of pressure in that tournament was extreme So when I was playing against Magnus (Carlsen) in this other tournament (Isle of Man Open) I didn’t have any nervous energy left So I was very chilled out before the game That helped me to play at my best The game was very good overall It was equal at the beginning but he made a few inaccuracies and then I got into a slightly better position But I underestimated my chances; so he could escape with a draw" Gujrathi explained If readers would have noticed the tenor of Gujrathi’s statement makes it clear that he rued letting the world champion off the hook He is not somebody who would be smug at having escaped with a draw against the mighty Carlsen but one who would search out his errors that let the world champion escape analyse them and find a way to banishthem the next time they faced each other This is what a champion is made of; this is how he thinks At this point I sought to dig deeper in my quest to understand how the mind of a chess champion functioned "Let’s say you have a match against one of the big names —Carlsen or Wesley So or Levon Aronian —in a big tournament tomorrow How would you prepare today What would your strategies be What would be thinking about" I asked "First of all I would see what have they been doing recently and what has been their style For example Carlsen in that tournament (Isle of Man Open) was freestyling; he was mixing up things he was changing every day he was not sticking to his repertoire He was trying to be unpredictable Then I would decide how best I should play and for that game (against Carlsen) I decided to stick to my repertoire and be confident in my preparation and then try to be solid It worked out really well If I am playing an aggressive player who is a solid player himself then I would have to change my strategy and try to be a bit more aggressive and be more on the offensive" replied Gujrathi giving us more than a sneak peek into his sharp mind and astute strategising Another factor that has helped Gujrathi become the player he has is the aggression that he has built into his game Vidit Gujrathi deep in thought during a match at the Isle of Man Open Chesscom/Maria Emelianova "A few years ago when I was a little younger I had the tendency to make draws So I would offer draws when there would be a lot of fight left and I realised that this was taking me nowhere So in recent times I worked on it and realised that fighting till the end was much better — if you fight till the end you definitely have more chances You will lose some but you will win many more That’s what I am doing in the recent times" Gujrathi said However if there was an Achilles Heel for him it was that he used to get extremely upset at losses which many thought did him more harm than good "Since my childhood I hated losing be it in any sport So when I used to lose to my dad I used to ask for rematch and after a while my dad got tired of it So he took me to a chess club to learn the game and then I started winning I always had the tendency to get really angry whenever I used to lose That somehow helped me in the initial stages but then I realised that it was not a good habit to get so angry" Gujrathi revealed With experience Gujrathi has been able to channelise his frustration at losses better and come back stronger And this has been another aspect in his development as a world-class chess player How satisfying has breaching the 2700-Elo barrier been for him given that he was only the fourth Indian after Anand Pentala Harikrishna and Krishnan Sasikiran at that peak "I remember when I was very young I used to see them in the magazines —Anand Hari and Sasi —and I always felt okay I want to be at the top and be like them When I was growing up it was definitely an inspiration And finally when I was so close when I used to be at 2699. and then eventually achieving it it felt really good I had more confidence in myself and that really showed in the next tournament where I increased 20 more rating points" said Gujrathi His 2700-Elo rating becomes all the more significant when one considers the exceptionally talented players who are yet to reach that coveted mark Mention that to Gujrathi and you would get a polite reply: "Yes it is considered as a very important milestone In chess players’ views and organisers’ views it is considered to be a level of certain class" In talking about his achievements Gujrathi however doesn’t fail to acknowledge the role played by Anish Giri in his development He had been the second to the Dutch star for some time now and has benefited enormously "I am helping him in some tournaments but apart from that one thing that is more important is that we are good friends We are of the same age and we get along really well Regarding my chess definitely if you work and interact with a player who is at the top of the field you gain some qualities from him and I am sure I grasped a few qualities from him as well" Gujrathi noted Chess was however not an automatic choice for Gujrathi "Well I used to play cricket a lot with my dad He used to come from the clinic and we used to play in the house and on the streets also So I liked the game but when I went to the (coaching) club they said I was too young for itbecause I can get really hurt And I used to play chess as well with my dad So the other option was chess There was something about it that I enjoyed very much Then I started winning tournaments which gave me confidence and I realised "Okay maybe this is something which I can do"" he recounted Gujrathi who would be playing in the Chinese and Hungarian leagues next is however training his guns on the tournament at Wijk ann Zee —which is considered to be a Grand Slam tournament of chess —next year He sounded extremely positive when asked about the future of Indian chess and when reminded of themassive poolof young talent in the country at the moment in the form of B Adhiban SP Sethuraman and others apart from himself "India has always been respected as a chess-playing nation because of the legend Anand He is loved and adored everywhere in all the countries and now when I interact with my friends or colleagues (from other countries) they say that they are scared to play the Indian players and that’s a good thing This is because they (the Indian players) are very talented and the most hard-working and it is not easy to beat them" Gujrathi said "It is a true perception There are lots of young players who put up a really long fight and it is not at all easy (to beat them) So in the next few years provided we keep up the good work and we get the required infrastructure and support I think chess in India is going to get a big boom" he added Talking of the nature of support that is needed he said that organising top-level tournaments in India would be a real shot in the arm for Indian chess "It used to happen a few years ago and if it is restarted we will get more opportunities to play against the top players and I think that is the main thing that is lacking right now" he said Regular sponsorship would also do the game in the country and its players a world of good But in all this one thing is absolutely certain There will be no stopping him in the days to come He has all the makings of the next world champion from India Indian chess is certainly looking up "More than 2, foundations, ” Akande explained that while N500bn was budgeted for the programme in 2016 and 2017 each, puts 2014 growth at 6. a series of international development

Minister Justin Trudeau came in reaction to an NBC News report that he had pushed senior aides in July for a major expansion of the US nuclear arsenal The president’s request reportedly prompted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to refer to Trump as a "moron" after the meeting at the PentagonOn Twitter Trump called the report "pure fiction made up to demean" him and questioned whether networks that report "Fake News" should be stripped of their broadcasting licenses – although the Federal Communications Commission licenses individual stations and affiliates not networks"Bad for the country" Trump wroteLater in response to questions from reporters in the Oval Office Trump denied expressing a desire for more nuclear weapons and again criticized NBC"It’s frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write" Trump said "And people should look into it"Trump said he was not calling for limits to be imposed on the media but he said that "the press should speak more honestly""I mean I’ve seen tremendously dishonest press" he said "It’s not even a question of distortion And then they have their sources that don’t exist"Trump’s diatribe marked the latest attack against the press from a president who according to people close to him has felt increasingly frustrated over his stalled legislative agenda and political troubles While Trump has long attacked news coverage of his administration as unfair his latest missives have morphed into vague threats of government action at his perceived adversariesLast week angered by the ongoing investigations into his campaign’s ties to Russia Trump suggested the Senate Intelligence Committee investigate news outlets over "fake news" Over the weekend he expressed disdain at late-night television hosts over their "anti-Trump" material and proposed bringing back the Fairness Doctrine a rule phased out in 1987 that had required broadcasters to provide "equal time" for divergent political views on certain issues First Amendment advocates roundly condemned the president over his remarks calling them an assault on the Constitution"I think it’s dangerous and has a chilling effect" said Michael Copps who served as chairman of the FCC in 2009 under President Barack Obama "I worry not just about somebody like NBC which has a lot of resources to defend themselves but especially about small independent broadcasters who express opinions but do not have resources to do battle with the president"Legal experts called the president’s threat against NBC empty noting that the FCC does not grant licenses to networks but rather to individual stations across the country Furthermore they said it is rare for those licenses to be stripped over political concerns or for other reasons"Not how it works" Jessica Rosenworcel a member of the FCC wrote on Twitter in response to Trump linking to an FCC report on how stations are regulated"Obviously when a public official much less the president threatens media outlets with any kind of legal proceedings it is a cause for grave concern as a First Amendment matter" said Andrew Schwartzman a media law specialist at the Georgetown University Law Center "But as a practical matter there is no possible legal jeopardy for Comcast television licenses" Comcast the cable giant owns NBCSchwartzman noted the historical precedent when allies to President Richard M Nixon challenged individual licenses of television stations owned by The Washington Post Co in 1973 during The Post’s ongoing investigation into the Watergate scandalThose challenges were baseless and were unsuccessful Schwartzman said"The Post was never under serious legal threat" he said adding that Trump "is ignorant over details like what the law actually requires or permits"NBC reported that Trump’s reaction over the nuclear stockpile came after senior advisers showed him information charting its steady decline in numbers since the 1960s during the meeting at the Pentagon in July Trump then expressed a desire to expand the arsenal by up to 10 times its current size according to the reportTrump is preparing for an 11-day trip next month to five Asian nations during which he will seek to bolster international support to pressure North Korea to curb its nuclear weapons and ballistic-missile testing During a speech at the United Nations last month Trump said the United States was prepared to "totally destroy" the North if necessary and he derisively referred to dictator Kim Jong Un as the "Rocket Man" North Korea responded that Trump’s threats amounted to a declaration of warTillerson said during a visit to Beijing two weeks ago that the administration was "probing" for channels of direct communication with Pyongyang to ratchet down tensions But Trump quickly undercut the nation’s top diplomat saying on Twitter that it was a waste of time"Recent reports that the President called for an increase in the US nuclear arsenal are absolutely false" Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in a statement "This kind of erroneous reporting is irresponsible"In the Oval Office Trump said of the nuclear arsenal: "We won’t need an increase but I want modernization and I want total rehabilitation It’s got to be in tiptop shape" He said a tenfold increase in the stockpile is "totally unnecessary believe me Because I know what we have right now"NBC did not formally respond to Trump’s attacks on the network Courtney Kube a national security reporter for the network wrote on Twitter: "NBC News didn’t report Trump ‘called for’ more nucs On the contrary we reported Trump said he wanted more but no one took it as an order"Last week after Trump suggested the Senate committee investigate news organizations White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the president calling him "an incredible advocate of the First Amendment"Reporters she said "have a responsibility to tell the truth to be accurate" and she cited a study from Pew Research Center that found 5 percent of news stories about Trump in his first 60 days in office were positiveSanders accused reporters of being consumed by "petty palace intrigue" – stories about personnel moves and

"fireable offense"Ben Wizner director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Speech Privacy and Technology Project said Trump’s attacks risk "outrage fatigue" But he added "a call to challenge the

ExchangeDCP Traffic VISHWAS PANDHARE speaks on the failure of the Bus Rapid Transit Systemwhy Punes traffic is getting slower by the day and why this continues to be an unsolved puzzle AJAY KHAPE: What is the reason behind accidents on BRTS route At presentthe BRTS route is a mixed traffic route and not a dedicated one We were insisting on creation of a dedicated route for BRTS We also do not have a system in place to prevent private vehicles from entering the dedicated track The Pune Municipal Corporation is creating a separate BRTS cell Sowe will now request them to deploy dedicated staff to stop these vehicles There is also absence of monitoring Our officers and staffers are busy in other duties and there is no 24 X 7 monitoring We have requested the PMC to appoint officers from the security board to ensure that the traffic wardens are there and doing their duty If they are found not doing their dutyaction should be taken against them MANOJ MORE: But PMPML has already created a BRTS cell They are going to create a dedicated cell for Alandi and Nagar Road AJAY KHAPE: What role can the traffic police play in proper implementation of the BRTS We can help them with the traffic cops and wardens But I repeat that there should be a separate system and the PMC should not depend on us The PMC has created BRTS tracksPMPML is using these and they are asking us to monitor it Sofor proper functioningthere should be a separate cell with responsibilities shared by all of us CHANDAN HAYGUNDE: These are just remedies But as DCP Traffic dont you think there are some major flaws in the existing BRTS When the meeting to plan the new BRTS was heldwe had suggested in fact submitted in writing that before the new BRTS is plannedwe should focus more on eliminating the flawswhich had drawn public criticism So that people will have trust in the system and there will be public support This time too we had categorically said that the BRTS route should be dedicated And the mistakes made earlier should not be repeated AJAY KHAPE: At presentwe are talking about only a few roads with BRTS But they want to create BRTS tracks on all main roads of the city What will be the scenario then BRTS has proved to be a successful model world over But we must also look at the components that made them successful There should be dedicated tracks and adequate frequency The service should be efficient and cost-effective Noweven then you want to a allow a private vehicle on the roadthey should be taxed more Then there is one-card payment system for all the modes rented cyclesbusestrains If I stay at Ambegaon and BRTS is available from Katrajthere there should be a system that will take me from my home to the BRTS starting point If there is no bus and I come by a motorcycle or bicyclethere should be safe parking space An then there should be surety that I will get the bus to my destination in five to seven minutes Then the bus should reach there in time Only then will the BRTS be successful Same is the USP of the local trains combined with BEST bus system in Mumbai There is assurance We have given these suggestions to the PMC MANOJ MORE: You have given these suggestions to the PMC Do they listen to you Lookit is the PMCs job to construct BRTS tracks and maintain themPMPML has the job of looking after the operations There should also be a dedicated force to man the traffic and stop private vehicles from entering the lane Nowit is almost five years since the BRTS have been functional Dont you think there should have been a study to examine how effective has it been Is there a rise in the number of commuters Are they satisfied When it comes to BRTS trackshave we ever asked why there are so many openings to the tracks Alsothe remaining traffic has been allotted rest of the space on the road Have we ever asked if that carriage width is enough for the traffic or not Just because there are fundsnew tracks are coming up What about the planning Jedhe Chowk has BRTS It has a huge number of pedestrians The buses stops are right at the centre of the junction and people get down there How will they walk back How will this work We gave them a lot of suggestions for the bus route and for pedestrians We asked the BRTS planners whether it was not common sense to keep these paths separate Are we going to keep doing the same things for the years to come They showed us the plan There will be a bus standa Metro station at this place The number of vehicles and pedestrians will increase multifold in 2050for example These planners are still going by the 2008 yardstick But now they are seeking our opinion before planning We also interfere if we feel something is going wrong MANOJ MORE: This again brings us to the same question Is there enough coordination between you and the municipal corporations There was no such coordination earlier We felt there is no communication between all these stakeholders But after February last yearwhen a meeting was called by the deputy chief ministerwe have started holding meetings right from the ward level NISHA NAMBIAR: Have you given any proposal to the state government for additional manpower As of now what is the strength We currently have 1060 traffic constables Last yearwe sent a proposal for 552 more We need 1500 more personnel But these vacancies are going to be filled step by step Of the 55000 new cops to be recruited in the next five yearsevery year 11000 will be added Sowe will also get our share step by step Pune city is a priority in this We are also working on efficient use of the available strength They do not have training We have now created a new training facility MANOJ MORE: What are the other constraints Onewe need more walkie talkies We have 190 now and we need 100 more These are required for better communication among us We need a lot of things to make working conditions better A lot of signals were not working and 80 non-functional ones have now been restarted PMC and PCMC did not even have the data on which signals are working and which are not We have now designed a signal policy and started working on signal timings We have some major changes of signal timings on a few arterial roads as of now Many signals had severe structure flaws of positioning It is impossible for cops to manage the traffic if these flaws are not removed There are a lot of things we have told the PMC They have not acted on them SUNANDA MEHTA: Do you think the Metro will also help the city What if the same happens with Metro as what happened in the case of BRTS Yes of course Any public transport implemented with conscious planning will help the city SUSHANT KULKARNI: Do traffic police have any SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) in cases such as Santosh Mane Are there any guideline regarding what should be your response in case of a terror attack or a natural calamity I can assure you that we are prepared The first job of the traffic cops in such cases is to safely divert the traffic We are now capable of making desired diversions within minutes We did this in the case of the low-intensity serial blasts on Jangli Maharaj Road We have VIP movementsGanesh festivalsPalkhi where we get to actually put in practice our diversion plans We also have to carry out checking of vehicles in many such cases We now have ready plans on doing nakabandi Sonow if we have to check suspected vehicles from some specific routeswe know where to place check points We have a system in which we can place nakabandi on all the 21 entry/exit points of the city within minutes These 21 points will soon be getting CCTV cameras and automatic registration number reading systemso that we can have records of vehicles coming and going SUSHANT KULKARNI: A lot of traffic changes have been made Like making JM and FC roads one way But there is always criticism about these changes being made without planning See for examplein case of JM and FC roadsthe then DCP Manoj Patil had given a detailed plan in 2010 on pedestrian crossings with signalsbus stopsparking spaces and footpath along the road It has not been implemented We wanted a signal between Roopali and Vaishali restaurants But the city engineer of PMC says it is not suitable Now you should ask him the reason SHRIKRUSHNA KOLHE: A lot of places have wrongly constructed speed breakers Yes We have told this to the PMC and have also got speedbreakers at 70 spots removed or improved There are norms on speed breakers There should be markingwhich should be repainted regularly and there should be reflectors and signage boards A boy and a girl were riding a bike at night and the boy could not see the speed breaker They fell down and the girl died This should not be a build and forget work NISHA NAMBIAR: Has there been an increase or decrease in the traffic violations Before that let me ask you this When do we say there is a traffic violation If there is speedingdriving under influence of alcoholnot wearing helmetgoing triple seat on a bikehalting on zebra crossingtalking on phone while drivingparking in no-parking zonenot wearing seat belts Where is the root of all this Is it not in our mentality When we say Puneites have no disciplinedo we ever ask who should give them lessons on discipline Dont you think we should be taught traffic discipline at homeschoolscolleges and also while issuing licenses There is no institution which teaches us traffic disciplineWe say that in Western countriespeople stop at signals even at 2 amthats because such is the culture SUNANDA MEHTA: Also because they know they wont be spared if they break the rules Thats exactly the kind of fear that is missing in our country And for this the traffic police is answerable I do not agree with you I believeif the lesson has to last a lifetimeit has to be inculcated through creating a traffic culture Tell me what will last longerthe fear of a fine or a traffic culture that will tell you that if you dont wear a helmet and if you speedyour life is at risk Now about Mumbai Let us compare We have an area of 743 sq km and Mumbai has 437 Mumbai has 150 officerswe have 40 Mumbai has 70 towing craneswe have eight They have 3500 stafferswe have recently reached 1000 In Mumbai of the 1250 junctionsthey have signals at 1238 We have 1400 junctions and signals at just 300 Mumbai has vehicle population of 22 lakh and we have 37 lakh Of 37 lakhwe have 24 lakh two-wheelersin Mumbai over 75 per cent are cars because public transport is very good Their signals can be fully manned So statisticallyif someone breaks a rulechances are he will be caught seven out of 10 times But in Puneit is just two out of 10 times And there is also a different mentality So as a solution to this problemwe conduct drives We have also seen people trying overpower traffic cops But stillyou will agree that Pune has less jams than Mumbai We have less accidents Pune traffic is flowing and that is my priority In Delhitraffic cops have the authority to set up signals And they can do it within 15 days after taking the decision Herewe have no such authority and it takes months to set up signals Delhi Traffic Police gets funds for creating awareness There is a statutory committee of all stakeholders to take decisions on traffic issues in Delhi And here we talk about co-ordination In Western countriesthere are modern systems of detecting traffic violations and implementation The fine is deducted from the bank account or at every renewal Do we even have a system to check that a person is driving despite his license has been cancelled People get another licence SUNANDA MEHTA: But in the last one yearthe situation has really worsened It takes twice the time to reach your destination Have the roads widened in proportion to the vehicle population Has there been an addition to public transport What have we done in case of major traffic bottlenecks Look at Bopodi-Khadki traffic Incoming traffic is coming from six lanes And then it enters a two-lane road What else do you expect What logic is this Have the roads been widened all over Another exampleAundhBaner and Pashan traffic comes to University square Have we ever argued on the position of the flyovers When will we look at the traffic as a problem of the flow and not as the one of a point or patch We asked them to make a subway at Simla office square instead of SG Barve chowk but they did not listen to us ANURADHA MASCARENHAS: What about the health of constables They have been given masks but it is very difficult to breathe the way we do without masks I have tried using one We do organise health check-ups on a regular basis AJAY KHAPE: Have you approached the government on introducing traffic rules in school curriculum We had given a suggestion for the inclusion of the subject in the syllabus There has been a discussion within the government I think some steps are going to be taken by the transport secretary soon MANOJ MORE: What about the bus stands of the state transport We have the same three bus stands since 1960 ShivajinagarPune station and Swargate Why was there no thought of decentralisation They are not using even the spaces they have Why no new bus stands have been built SUSHANT KULKARNI: We have printed photos of cars in no-parking zone outside the PMC building There is criticism that action is not taken against peopleespecially politicians That is not correct And not that all cars were of politiciansas you are saying They do not have parking space We have asked them to make arrangements We will definitely action It might have happened because the traffic cop was not present You knowsome people from the PMC were asking for that entire street but we said no CHANDAN HAYGUNDE: What is the secret of your built and health Regular exercise It has to be a habit We all know we should exercisetake enough sleep and eat well But how may of us do it I dont find
