The U.S. also recognized the leadership body as a legitimate representative, but stopped short of describing it as a sole representative. Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Syria’s opposition had been deeply divided for months despite the relentless bloodshed and repeated calls from Western and Arab supporters to create a cohesive and representative leadership that could present a single conduit for foreign aid. The formation of the coalition, after more than a week of meetings in the Qatari capital of Doha, could boost efforts to secure international backing _ and possibly weapons _ that will be needed to oust President Bashar Assad.Clinton was asked Wednesday whether there was any way the U.S. would follow France and recognize the opposition as sole representatives and perhaps provide lethal aid.“We have long called for this kind of organization,” Clinton said. “The United States was deeply involved in the work that went on leading up to and at Doha. Now we want to see that momentum maintained. Specifically, we urge them to finalize the organizational arrangements to support the commitments that they made in Doha and to begin influencing events on the ground in Syria.”“As the Syrian opposition takes these steps and demonstrates its effectiveness in advancing the cause of a unified, democratic, pluralistic Syria, we will be prepared to work with them to deliver assistance to the Syrian people,” she said.last_img read more

LISTEN Jen Welter Cardinals assistant coach

Posted on by

first_imgLISTEN: Jen Welter, Cardinals assistant coach She also can’t wait to get started on something that has been a long time in the making, a dream that is finally coming true.“I knew as soon as I started playing football that it was my destiny,” she said. “I didn’t know what that meant, but I knew that God had put me on a path and that I had to be smart enough to put my head down, go to work and let him put me to work. That’s what he’s done up to this point.“What would be a dream? A dream would be staying on. A dream would be staying on. A dream would be sitting there with (Kirkland) and him being like, ‘Man, I’m glad I wrote you up in this fellowship’ or someone else does. But I can’t say what that means yet. I have to live in this moment and be so happy to be right here, because if the work’s not there, it doesn’t matter how big your dreams are because you’re going to be sitting on the sidelines anyway. Well, not on those sidelines; you’re going to be sitting on the side of the road.” Kevin Minter, one of the players Welter will be working with, tweeted a simple, “S/O to @jewelter47….Welcome to AZ coach.”Cornerback Patrick Peterson, one of the faces of the franchise, wrote, “One team, one goal! Let’s go to work coach @jwelter47 ! #Birdgang #OperationBringLombardiTrophyToAZ”In short, while the hire of Welter is a big story, it’s also a non-story. Though she and the team are breaking new ground, when the dust settles, she’ll be just another coach looking to make her way through a difficult industry.As Arians said, he’s “extremely excited about opening this door for a very, very qualified person.”Now it’s up to Welter to walk through it. She said her expectation going into the job is to learn. Asked what her biggest challenge is, she quipped “the size of an NFL playbook. I’m a doctor, but that’s a lot of work.”That work begins in earnest this weekend, as players report for training camp Friday before getting started with a month’s worth of practices and games Saturday. Welter said her biggest asset as a coach is being able to show players that any limitation can be overcome with enough preparation and work, that it’s not always about “out-bigging” someone. Her reputation as a player was of one with one of the highest motors on the team, and she has every intention on bringing that mentality to her new gig. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The significance of it all is not lost on anyone.“She came over for OTAs, we met, and I knew this was the type of person that I was looking for to start this,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said.“I think it’s great; I think it was going to be one of the 32 teams — I’m glad it was us,” Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill said. “I spoke to Commissioner Goodell about it [Monday] afternoon and he was elated and said ‘Congratulations’ and was pretty excited about the fact that, so quickly, we’ve got a (female) NFL official and now an NFL coach who will be joining us through the preseason and training camp.”And, finally, there is Welter herself.“I didn’t start playing football to be here; I didn’t even dream that it was possible,” she said. “And I think the beauty of this is that though it’s a dream I never could have had, now it’s a dream other girls can grow up and have.”Welter said she loved football from a young age, but was not really able to get into the sport until she was done with college. She comes to Arizona with 14 years of professional experience, having helped the Dallas Diamonds of the Women’s Football Alliance win four championships as well as earning a pair of gold medals with Team USA at the International Federation of American Football Women’s World Championship in 2010 and 2013. Most recently, she played running back for the Indoor Football League’s Texas Revolution in 2014 and then guided the same team’s linebackers and special teams in 2015.So make no mistake, while her road to this point is one you may not be familiar with, she would not have gotten here without taking it.Or help from plenty of people along the way, including Arians, who made sure to call Welter “a trail blazer.”“That only happens with the best possible team, and that comes with the foresight of somebody like Bruce who, just out of the strength of his will, I would say that’s how it happened,” Welter said. “He told me when he offered me the job, ‘I want you to know it’s in my heart to offer you this internship — I don’t know yet if I can make it happen.’ He had to reach out and get all the right support. He had to have the support of a family like the Bidwills. He had to have a general manager with the foresight of Steve Keim to say yes. He had to get all of the right yesses, but it was his heart that made it happen, it was his belief that the Arizona Cardinals was the team that could handle this happening and that he had coaches on his staff that would embrace it, not cast me off to the side.” Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactcenter_img Welter said Levon Kirkland, who is also joining the team on a two-year internship, reached out to her Monday looking to get right to work, offering whatever help he could.“That’s the attitude that all of the interns he has here have, and that’s the attitude that everyone on his staff here. That’s beautiful. You can’t blaze a trail alone, otherwise you’re going to get stuck in the woods.”In a way, the idea of being the first team to hire a female coach — even as a training camp and preseason intern — could be seen as an unnecessary distraction. After all, the Cardinals have eyes on reaching Super Bowl 50 and there would seem to be no reason to do anything at all that could deter them.But the best part about this is the Cardinals, for better or worse, see no reason why bringing Welter on board could be problematic. Arians said players just want to be taught how to be better regardless of who it is that’s doing the teaching, which is a sentiment Kirkland — a two-time Pro Bowler over the course of 11 NFL seasons as a linebacker — echoed.“What I’ve also learned about players in this league that I think sometimes a lot of people don’t know, but these guys, they want to learn,” he said. “They want to learn from the best. They want to be taught.” TEMPE, Ariz. — History is made in many ways.Sometimes, it’s by pure accident. Other times, it’s the result of a long process.And every now and then, it’s simply long overdue. Such is the case for Dr. Jen Welter, who by all accounts will be the first woman to hold any kind of coaching role with an NFL team when she fulfills her internship with the Arizona Cardinals this training camp and preseason.

Posted on by

first_img FILE – In this April 16, 2007, file photo, Brendan Dassey appears in court at the Manitowoc County Courthouse in Manitowoc, Wis. Dassey is a Wisconsin inmate who was featured in the “Making a Murderer” series. Lawyers for Dassey who was featured in the series on Netflix asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018, to review a federal appeals court decision that held his confession was voluntary. Dassey’s legal team told the high court in their petition that the case raises crucial issues that extend far beyond Dassey’s case alone and that long have divided state and federal courts. (Dan Powers/The Post-Crescent, Pool, File) by The Associated Press Posted Feb 20, 2018 3:22 pm PDT Last Updated Feb 21, 2018 at 6:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MILWAUKEE – Lawyers for a Wisconsin inmate featured in the “Making a Murderer” series on Netflix asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday to review a federal appeals court decision that held his confession was voluntary.Brendan Dassey’s legal team told the high court in their petition that the case raises crucial issues that extend far beyond Dassey’s case alone and that long have divided state and federal courts.Dassey’s lawyers claim investigators took advantage of his youth and intellectual and social disabilities to coerce him into falsely confessing that he helped his uncle, Steven Avery, rape and kill photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005 in the Avery family’s junk yard in Manitowoc County. Dassey was 16 at the time. He was sentenced to life in prison in 2007.“Too many courts around the country, for many years, have been misapplying or even ignoring the Supreme Court’s instructions that confessions from mentally impaired kids like Brendan Dassey must be examined with the greatest care — and that interrogation tactics which may not be coercive when applied to an adult can overwhelm children and the mentally impaired,” his attorney, Steven Drizin, said in a statement.A federal court in Wisconsin overturned Dassey’s conviction in 2016, and a three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed that decision last June. While the full 7th Circuit voted 4-3 to reverse the panel’s decision to grant him a new trial, one dissenting judge called the case “a profound miscarriage of justice.”The legal odds remain high against Dassey. The U.S. Supreme Court grants only a tiny fraction of the petitions for review that it receives.Avery, who insists police framed him, is appealing his conviction in Wisconsin state courts.center_img Supreme Court asked to review ‘Making a Murderer’ confessionlast_img read more

McCartney says sharing the raunchier stories of his days in the Beatles doesn’t faze him anymore and he’s getting a kick out of knowing others enjoy the tales.THE CANADIAN PRESS/HO-MPL Communications MANDATORY CREDIT center_img TORONTO – Paul McCartney says sharing the raunchier stories of his days in the Beatles doesn’t faze him anymore and he’s getting a kick out of knowing others enjoy the tales.The 76-year-old musician recently spilled the dirt on the Fab Four in the pages of GQ. One memory involved the time he and his bandmates applauded the loss of George Harrison’s virginity and in another McCartney fessed up to hiring two Las Vegas prostitutes.“I’m not really trying to get attention, I’m having fun,” the musician said in a phone interview from Quebec.“I have a feeling that you can actually sort of say a bit more these days than you would’ve wanted to say in previous years.”McCartney, who launches his Freshen Up tour in Quebec on Monday, says the “spicy stories” he’s shared in recent interviews are only the tip of the iceberg, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll be sharing more tales about the “joys of youth.”“Let’s face it, we were young kids from Liverpool,” he said.“And then we were young kids from Liverpool on tour getting famous and drawing attention to ourselves. So there’s quite a few stories. Not all suitable for public consumption, I don’t think.”After his stop in Quebec, McCartney plays dates in Montreal (Sept. 20), Winnipeg (Sept. 28) and Edmonton (Sept. 30) before heading to Japan.He said he’s especially looking forward to entertaining Canadian audiences.“It’s always good to play an English-speaking place, although we start in Quebec which is barely an English speaking place,” he says.“You get a feeling about Canada… they love their music, it’s a very warm audience and I feel a kinship. They come to party and so do we.”McCartney says returning to the same Beatles and Wings hits each tour doesn’t bother him, even after all these years, because he feeds off the audience’s appreciation for iconic songs like “Hey Jude.”“I should really be bored of it by now, but I’m not because every time I do it, particularly these days, you see the coming together of people,” he says.“It’s the fact that the song is working and it’s bringing people together that makes it a joy to play.”“I like the song,” he adds. “It’s not a bad one.”Follow @dfriend on Twitter.last_img read more

North Korea’s condemnation of Trump’s hawkish national security adviser,” says Stefan Bird CEO of Pacific Power a West Coast utility whose parent company plans to build a major wind farm in Wyoming “It’s the least cost renewable we can add to our system by far” Despite enormous potential wind-power development in the Western mountain states has lagged behind other parts of the nation The sparsely populated states don’t need more electricity and the excess power didn’t have anywhere to go But that’s changing fast as demand for wind power increases around the country and technological advances make it cheaper and easier to transmit The biggest strides are being made in Wyoming where two companies are racing to build massive wind farms to supply the West Coast In Carbon County the Power Company of Wyoming has broken ground on what will be the largest wind-power installation in the country The completed project which is projected to create 1000 local jobs calls for 1000 wind turbines generating enough energy to power nearly a million homes That power will travel 730 miles to California through a direct current transmission line built by an affiliate “Wyoming has some of the best wind-energy resources in the world” then Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said in 2012 when the federal government approved the Carbon County farm “There’s no doubt that this project has the potential to be a landmark example” Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway which owns Pacific Power has also jumped on the Wyoming bandwagon pumping billions into developing its own wind-power farm and transmission lines That project aims to bring more than a gigawatt of wind power to the West–enough to power 750000 homes The key to all of these projects is getting the power from its source to its users As the US increases its reliance on clean energy the ability to move it from one part of the country to another will be critical “If there is transmission available” says Alex Morgan a wind analyst at Bloomberg New Energy Finance “wind projects pop up around it” Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecom This appears in the June 05 2017 issue of TIMEPerth: Angelique Kerber’s early season renaissance continued to flourish on Friday as she led Germany into their first Hopman Cup final since 1995 at the mixed teams tournament in Perth The left-hander wound the clock back to 2016 with her menacing forehand as she thrashed Australia’s Daria Gavrilova in straight sets in the singles and then lifted the Germans to victory in the deciding mixed doubles as they notched a dramatic 2-1 win in their final Group A tie Germany’s Angelique Kerber hits a return against Thanasi Kokkinakis of Australia during their twelfth session mixed doubles match on day seven of the Hopman Cup AFP Kerber and Alexander Zverev only had to beat the Australians to reach Saturday’s final against Switzerland’s Roger Federer and Belinda Bencic But it came down to a tense mixed doubles clash after world number four Zverev suffered a shock loss to Thanasi Kokkinakis in the men’s singles With Zverev’s form faltering noticeably the Germans dropped the first set in the Fast4 doubles Although they levelled the match their fate looked grim when Australia led 3-1 in the first-to-five third set tie-breaker with the in-form Kokkinakis having two serves to come But the Germans won the next four points to advance to the final denying the Belgium pairing of David Goffin and Elise Mertens who had beaten Canada earlier in the day and would have gone through to the final with an Australian win Zverev said Kerber deserved all the plaudits for their place in the final "Angie played unbelievable in both her matches" he said "She is the reason we are in the final and I’m going to give her all the credit I didn’t play very well today" The German pairing of Boris Becker and Anke Huber won the final in 1995 with Michael Stich and Steffi Graf winning it two years earlier Kerber started 2017 ranked number one in the world but slumped to 21 by the year’s end and on paper appeared to have her work cut out against the 26th-ranked Gavrilova in the singles The Australian held four break points in the first game of the match but it was one-way traffic from there as Kerber produced a procession of winners on her way to an emphatic 6-1 6-2 victory Kokkinakis stuns Zverev Kerber has won all three of her singles matches at the Hopman Cup and hasn’t dropped a set The confidence of 29-year-old is rising as she heads towards Melbourne where she won her maiden Grand Slam in 2016 "I am really happy with my three wins" she said "It’s still the beginning of the year but having good matches under my belt before heading to Melbourne gives me much confidence" She will face another player unbeaten in singles this week in Saturday’s final in Bencic the former world number seven rebuilding her career after injury The injury-plagued Kokkinakis is ranked 209th but stunned world number four Zverev coming from a set down on the back of a booming forehand and superb serving to win 5-7 7-6 (7/4) 6-4 and keep the tie alive against the odds Little separated the pair throughout as they traded blows with Zverev staving off seven set points in the second set before the Australian levelled the match One break in the fifth game of the third set was enough for Kokkinakis to record one of the wins of his career on his third match point Zverev beat Federer in three sets all tie-breakers in Perth last year Earlier in the day troubled Canadian Eugenie Bouchard suffered an untimely injury setback in her final singles match as Belgium beat Denmark 3-0 Bouchard suffered a buttock injury late in her straight-sets loss to Mertens After Mertens beat Bouchard who produced her best performance of the tournament prior to the injury world number seven Goffin then cruised past Vasek Pospisil to secure the tie for the Belgians They were handed a clean sweep when Bouchard pulled out of the mixed doubles but it wasn’t quite enough to get them into the final New Delhi: Pakistan should become a "trading nation” rather than a “warrior nation" while ensuring it does not turn into China’s pawn Islamabad’s former envoy to the US Husain Haqqani has said In an interview to PTI Haqqani said Pakistan also needs to take a call on what is more important – supporting terror suspect Hafiz Saeed or gaining international credibility and respect Amid the consolidation of the already-robust Sino-Pak ties Haqqani who served as ambassador to the US from 2008 to 2011 stressed Pakistan should not go from being dependent on the US to relying on China and must refrain from becoming a "Chinese pawn" “Pakistan needs to build a self-sustaining economy” he said warning Islamabad of the pitfalls of aligning with a major power Haqqani who was in India last week for the launch of his new book ‘Reimagining Pakistan: Transforming a Dysfunctional Nuclear State’ said the country needs to "re-think its overall direction" including in the economic sector Pakistan should become a "trading nation rather than a warrior nation" and start thinking about geo-economics rather than geo strategy said the 61-year-old former diplomat and author of ‘Pakistan Between Mosque and Military’ and ‘India v Pakistan: Why Can’t We Just Be Friends’ among other books "Trying to take advantage of its strategic location by allowing itself to be used by one major power or another has brought Pakistan to the present situation and if we continue to play the same game the result is not going to be very different in the future” he said While Islamabad should seek good relations with Beijing "there is no reason why Pakistan should become a Chinese pawn in the mistaken belief" that this would somehow make it a power in its own right he said when asked if Pakistan’s dependence on China could prove counterproductive His remarks assume significance as in January the US had suspended more than $115 billion security assistance to Pakistan accusing it of harbouring terror groups such as the Afghan Taliban and Afghan guerilla group Haqqani Network After US president Donald Trump had lashed out at Pakistan earlier this year for providing "safe havens" to terrorists China had defended Islamabad saying the world community should acknowledge its all-weather ally’s "outstanding contribution" to counter terrorism File image of Husain Haqqani AFP Asked if America’s tougher stance against terror would push Islamabad into a robust military alliance with Beijing Haqqani said the more America and India came close the more Pakistan would try to strengthen its ties with China "But for Pakistan’s own sake it would be useful to have relationships with multiple partners Dependence on the US did not prove useful for Pakistan in the 50s and 60s; dependence on China will not necessarily be the key to Pakistan’s progress in the 21st century" said Haqqani who lives in the US where he is Senior Fellow and Director for South and Central Asia at the Washington-based Hudson Institute Haqqani was removed as Pakistan’s envoy to the US for his alleged role in what is known as the Memogate controversy which revolved around a memorandum seeking help from the Obama administration after the killing of Osama bin Laden to avert a military takeover of the civilian government in his country Asked if the suspension of American aid had brought about a change in Pakistan’s attitude Haqqani said the establishment had not changed its world view and was still hoping that logistical and other considerations would make the Trump administration soften its stance On the possibility of power blocs being formed in the region he said a "new Cold War" in which Pakistan aligns with China and India with the United States was not going to be positive for South Asia "I think that aligning with one major power against another is not the recipe for economic growth and success for a country like Pakistan" said Haqqani who also served as the Pakistani envoy to Sri Lanka from 1992 to 1993 The former diplomat who is often critical of the Pakistani military rued that the power structure in the country had not changed fundamentally and national security and foreign policy remained in the hands of the Army Pakistan has made distinctions between terror groups that have acted against it and those that have acted outside the country and that distinction had not worked to its advantage he said Islamabad’s insistence on "mainstreaming terrorists" rather than marginalising them was going to be counter-productive for the country he held Haqqani also said the Kashmir issue could be put on the back burner to build normal Indo-Pak relations "It is also a reality that the problem of Kashmir has not been solved in 70 years And if Pakistan insists on solving the Kashmir problem before moving forward on normal relations with India then it may have to wait for another 70 years" he said000-sq.

battle to break the long pattern of power alternating between the two fronts every five years Its attempt to beat the anti-incumbency sentiments by showcasing its ‘development and care’ policy initiatives in the last five years is facing a big challenge with the Opposition parties and women’s outfits reeling out statistics to show that the state was not a safe place for women to live during its five-year term Statistics available with the Crime Records Bureau of Kerala police shows massive rise in crimes against women during 2011-15 compared to the term of the Left Democratic Front (LDF) from 2006 to 2010 While rape cases registered more than 100 percent increase in the last five years sexual harassment cases went up by more than 50 percent As many as 5918 cases of rape were registered between 2011 and 2015 as against 2809 during 2006-2011 Harassment cases went up from 13381 during the five years of LDF rule to 20201 during the UDF period The kidnapping cases also saw an increase from 881 to 942 However cases of dowry deaths came down from 114 during 2006-10 to 94 during 2011-15 The situation in the first three months of the current year too is no different According to police sources 323 rape cases 1259 molestation incidents and 175 sexual harassment cases were reported in the state between January and March 2016 A significant number of the victims are children Out of the 5918 cases of rape reported in the last five years 2935 cases involved children The cases of rape reported during the last three years of the LDF rule were only 658 A total of 688 children were kidnapped during the UDF regime The number of kidnappings from 2008 to 2010 was a mere 281 The statistics show that at least three cases of rape were reported every day since UDF came to power in 2011 These are the number of cases reported to the police Senior officials say the number could be much higher if one takes the unreported cases into consideration A senior official who did not want to be identified said rape was one of the most under-reported crimes in Kerala Women especially unmarried girls and their parents have been showing reluctance in approaching the police as they fear that the publicity it brings may affect their future life Though the Opposition has attributed the rise in the crimes against women in the last five years to the UDF government’s failure in the maintenance of the law and order statistics show that it has been showing a steady increase over the years The rape cases registered an increase from 197 in 1991 to 552 in 2000 Similarly the

Commission member J Prameela Devi cites rising consumer culture fuelled by migration and the proliferation of electronic media as major factors behind the phenomenon She said blaming the government and the authorities alone may not help as the society as a whole was responsible for the phenomenon The pattern of sexual atrocities against women started witnessing a change in the 90s with the sprouting of sex rackets luring girls with promises of jobs or marriages or role in films and television serials It started with the kidnapping and subsequent rape of a 16-year-old girl from Suryanelli in Idukki district in 1996 The girl was allegedly lured with the promise of marriage and kidnapped by a bus conductor and pushed into flesh trade She was allegedly raped by 37 men over a period of 40 days The state witnessed a series of similar incidents since then Prominent among them are the Attappadi Vithura Karippur aerodrome Kovalam Manarcaud Kothamangalam Kollam Vagamon Thoppumpadi and the Kozhikode Ice Cream Parlour sex racket cases Most of these cases of flesh trade and sale of minor girls happened with the connivance of the police politicians and highly placed bureaucrats The culprits involve those in power to escape the dragnet of law This is evident in the low conviction rates in such cases A study by the Centre for Development Studies (CDS) Thiruvananthapuram showed that of the total number of cases in courts only less than 10 percent on the average were convicted and more than three times of the convicted cases were acquitted Activists say this could be one of the reasons for the rise in crimes against women They say Jisha would not have been murdered if the culprits in similar cases were brought before the law But Jisha case has no

world has also expanded In four years so far as The Economist correspondent in Delhi I have seen once-intense foreign appetite for news from India first shrink and then begin to grow again While corruption misdirected official policies and weak leadership dominated the news interest from abroad waned Then over the past year the triumphal march of Narendra Modi to office again provoked attention New evidence of faster growth will lift interest higher Imagine the rush of excitement when one day India nudges ahead of Chinese growth rates Great bursts of diplomatic activity help too But it is largely on the back of economic might that interest rises in India’s future strategic military and diplomatic heft Modi’s arrival as India’s most dominant character of course drew intense attention Mostly that is because he is a moderniser anxious to make government function better wielding a big electoral mandate who says he will improve the business climate open up to foreigners and get the economy racing Unabashed ambitions to make India strong active internationally and influential in its immediate region are welcome Separately some questions linger about stability and tolerance Is Modi’s continued close association with far-right Hindu nationalists an indication of social tension ahead What if a majoritarian leader proves clumsy in his treatment of minorities a fifth of India’s population How hostile is he to immigrants Are signs of an uptick in communal violence the start of a trend Will far-right extremists who spout provocative claims such as that all

foreigners — but also a country much more prosperous efficiently run and influential abroad Three months after taking office how is he doing One opportunity to take stock is at The Economist India Summit in Delhi on September 11 A day-long event it offers frank open and informed discussion Business leaders from India and abroad experts and investors representatives of the government and commentators will assess the record so far and ask what comes next No one can doubt that the political rupture of the general election and the size of the mandate won by Modi and the BJP mark a big political turn What is less clear is how decisively the government can break from previous policies or how quickly it can reform bureaucracy slash red tape and overcome vested interests One evident change is in style Modi’s election campaign was intensely personal — cult-like said critics — and in office his rule looks near-presidential Much decision-making is centralised He works hard claiming that he only sleeps three or four hours a night but generates energy through yoga So far the signs are that he will at least be far readier than his predecessor to take decisions Thus few at least beyond apparently disaffected rivals in the ruling party see a presidential-style leader as a problem Many voters plus investors who craved decisive transparent and responsive leadership still cheer him on How this will be sustained is less clear One man on however little sleep can only do so much The first three months in office have seen a remarkable focus on foreign affairs with Modi taking trips to Brazil Bhutan Nepal and (forthcoming) to Japan and America His hand is heavily directing foreign policy as India seeks deeper engagement in the rest of Asia hosts a series of foreign leaders veers from warmth to hostility towards Pakistan and rethinks its position at the World Trade Organisation Less attractive was the message he sent in July by scuppering the WTO deal on trade facilitation He may pay a price whatever his domestic reasons for that He immediately lost some of his international reputation as a pro-growth figure ready to take politically difficult decisions to

Arun Jaitley the finance minister to deliver a much more decisive reforming budget early next year By then there will be no excuse about lacking time for preparation Is it possible that the

whether on sanitation infrastructure or manufacturing — are to be implemented Rivalries between ministries bureaucrats lobbyists and politicians cannot be wished away To be seen as a truly reformist leader in other words Modi must find ways to turn his promises into facts on the ground It looks troubling that the pace of appointments and reforms in government is slow Is the economic advisor to be a pro-market figure after all Is the Planning Commission really to be replaced by a more liberal think-tank and with what powers Are the ministries of finance defence and corporate affairs really best huddled together under the control of one man Might it not prove useful to appoint a spokesman for the prime minister one day These remain relatively early days in office too soon to talk of

STPs with tertiary treatment which could increase the city’s water supply by up to 50 per cent Related News The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) plan to set up a sewage treatment plant in Malad recently received conditional approval from the Ministry of Environment and Forests which has asked the civic body to plant mangroves on a plot five times the land to be used for the project But the civic body has now written to the MoEF saying such a direction cannot be implemented Civic officials said under the plan the BMC would need to clear only 35 hectares of land for the project and had planned to plant trees on a plot of the same size they had identified in Thane “While we planned to plant trees on a 35-hectare plot the MoEF has asked us to plant mangroves on five times the land we will use which is around 180 hectares The direction is unreasonable as it is difficult to find such a large plot We wrote to the MoEF earlier this week seeking clearance to go ahead with the project” said an official The project has received all other clearances barring the MoEF’s approval and finalisation of discharge norms Civic officials said the project recently received clearance from the forest department and the collector as well “Our sewage already meets the standards prescribed by the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board However for the Malad STP project the discharge norms need to be expanded The delay is due to a lack of consensus between experts We have requested the CM to urge the MoEF to give us the necessary approvals so we can start work on the project” said the official Around 1500 million litres of untreated waste water is dumped into the sea which has adversely impacted the city’s coastline The existing treatment facility is only for preliminary treatment

now almost 25 years since the 74th constitutional amendment mandated that state governments transfer to the local governments a set of specified functions Related News Most people are aware that if Indian cities are to provide a reasonable quality of life for their residents and a better investment climate for investors it will require massive investments in urban infrastructure Lack of funding is usually perceived to be the principal constraint in achieving this objective What many people fail to realise is that even if funds were somehow made available it would not lead to well-designed and well-managed infrastructure and improvement in public service delivery unless there is fundamental reform in the institutions that govern the planning and management of cities within the Indian federal regime The ability to finance large investments is itself dependent on reforms For example reform in the form of setting user charges for the delivery of a public service to cover at least the operation and maintenance cost of the infrastructure asset including debt servicing would yield a revenue model that assures repayment of the loans raised from the capital market If equity is brought in by a private partner in a public-private partnership project then the user charge must cover a return on such investment However city governments are not allowed to raise user charges (while protecting the poorest by cross-subsidising) without approval from the state government Similarly the reform of assigning to urban local governments the function of urban planning including town planning would provide them with the opportunity of activating a market for land use change This would help them to unlock land value as they go about the business of land zoning and appropriating a part of the consequent appreciation in the value of land for financing urban infrastructure The systems of public service delivery in Indian cities and towns are very fragmented and highly inefficient The report of the high powered expert committee on urban infrastructure and services (HPEC 2011) had recommended administrative and institutional reforms designed to overhaul the system for example a unified command under an empowered and accountable mayor a municipal regulator for bringing a degree of professionalism in the pricing of urban services and use of e-governance and e-enabled smart technologies for better efficiency But there has been little action on the wide-ranging recommendations Successful attempts at e-governance in cities such as Hyderabad Bangalore Pimpri-Chinchwad and Surat are helping to create an environment for grievance redressal and better service delivery but the demonstration effect on other cities has been slow The demand for good governance is typically confronted by lack of capacity as cities grapple with unprecedented tasks of preparing various plans and projects to seek funding under national missions The experience of the JNNURM (Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission) which ran its course from 2005 to 2014 highlights the importance of reforms if Indian cities are to be transformed The government of India’s financial support under the JNNURM was made conditional on both the state government and the urban local government committing to specific reforms in urban planning finance and management The expectation was also that with reforms state governments and urban local governments will be able to attract additional finance from the private sector While some cities made serious effort at reform better service delivery as well as private finance came only when the state governments were willing to reform devolve funds and build capacity of their urban planners and city managers I had highlighted some success stories for example Amravati and Malkapur for water Alandur Surat and Jaipur for wastewater treatment Pune and Pammal for solid waste management as “Postcards of Change” in this newspaper But the wider canvas remains bleak The unwillingness of the system to devolve responsibility and funding to the city level is a major failure It is now almost 25 years since the 74th constitutional amendment mandated that state governments transfer to the local governments a set of specified functions While many functions have been devolved a major omission has been that of urban planning including town planning — the golden goose — which has been retained by most state governments The constitutional amendment itself was flawed in that it only required the state governments to set up state finance commissions that would spell out the principles for sharing/ devolving a part of the revenue of the state government The state finance commissions have not followed the high standards set by the Central Finance Commission and they have not been able to challenge state-level political resistance to devolving funds to urban local governments The share of municipal own revenues in their total revenue was at a low of 53 per cent in 2007-08 and declined further to 51 per cent in 2012-13 As of now property tax is a major source of revenue for these governments but both the rates and exemptions are set by the state government One way of reducing dependence on the state government for discretionary funds would be to create a Municipal Finance List in the Constitution that should specify taxes that are exclusively in the domain of local governments Ideally the opportunity provided by the GST which is the most efficient tax (because it does not cascade and its destination principle promotes India as a common market) should be used to constitutionally ensure that state governments share a pre-specified percentage of their revenue from GST with local governments The structure of the GST would remain two-tiered but the revenue allocation would be three-tiered Guaranteed devolution of GST will significantly reduce uncertainty in the finances of urban local governments and provide them with a basic cushion of financing to discharge their constitutionally assigned responsibilities Since devolution through GST is highly unlikely given the current political mood reforms in urban planning finance and management become even more important to mobilise resources and improve service delivery in Indian cities In June 2015 the government of India launched a number of major national missions for urban rejuvenation including Amrut (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation) and the Smart Cities Mission Amrut a successor of the JNNURM with funding conditional on reforms is effectively a Centrally sponsored scheme with an outlay of Rs 50000 crore over a five-year period Its challenge will lie in enforcing the conditionality of reforms precisely the area where the JNNURM failed The Smart Cities Mission with a commitment of Rs 48000 crore over a five-year period for 100 cities focuses on high-tech infrastructure to provide smart solutions for Indian cities The government of India has explicitly admitted that a significant part of the funding for these missions will have to come from the state governments and the private sector This makes reform indispensable The sooner we spell out the dimensions of institutional reform alongside the high-tech infrastructure plans the closer we will be to delivering a better quality of life in our cities and
