Yearend campaign invites public to share why they love Costa Rica

first_imgRelated posts:Guanacaste nonprofit celebrates 10 years of support for youth In this holiday season, finding ways to make a difference Costa Rica takes New York: Gala evening supports new expat mentoring program More U.S. tourists are taking vacations in Central America As a U.S. citizen living in Costa Rica, I’ve always felt a little sad about the fact that Black Friday is alive and well here without the counterweight of gratitude that Thanksgiving and, more recently, Giving Tuesday can represent. Of course, you don’t need a holiday to be thankful and give back, but it can be nice to have an outward reminder of what’s important. That’s why I’ve loved working on the #GraciasCostaRica campaign launched on Giving Tuesday (this past Dec. 1) by the Costa Rica U.S.A. Foundation for Cooperation, or CRUSA, where I am the development officer.The idea behind the campaign is pretty simple: Everyone who loves Costa Rica has a story, and we want to hear yours. Costa Ricans, international residents, one-time visitors, and even fans of the country who are still dreaming of coming here one day are invited to visit the campaign website, tell the world what they love most about the country – in English or Spanish – and upload a photo or video, if desired.No donation is required. We’ve been thrilled to see that many participants are inspired to check out the projects on the page and make a gift after they leave their message, but simply by joining in and sharing your message with your friends and family, you’ll help draw attention to the nonprofit initiatives in education, conservation and rural development that are featured on CRUSA’s unique binational donation platform, operated through Amigos of Costa Rica, a 501(c)(3) organization that serves as our branch in Washington, D.C.This week, you can even trigger a donation from someone else just by uploading a message. Donors to various projects will match messages with a gift. On Wednesday, Dec. 16, Cosí restaurants will match every message that mentions ASOBITICO with a donation to the International Baccalaureate in Public Schools program; on Thursday, Dec. 16, every message that mentions JumpStart will prompt a donation to JumpStart Costa Rica’s intensive English camps for low-income kids; and on Friday, Dec. 17, messages with the word “math” or “matemática” will be matched with a donation to the National Mathematics Reform that’s transforming public-school math programs. (Follow the campaign in Spanish or in English for further details on this week’s matching opportunities.)So far we’ve heard from celebrities such as news anchor Ginnés Rodríguez, television personality Mauricio Hoffman, and Mauricio “El Chunche” Montero of World Cup 1990 fame; expats who’ve shared their love for their adopted country; people who no longer live here, but who carry Costa Rica in their hearts or even started their families here; and, of course, Costa Ricans from far and wide, who have chosen to highlight their beloved hometowns or regions, snap a picture of themselves in the snow as they study abroad, or describe the causes close to their hearts. To see all of the messages left so far by people around the country and the world, visit us here.I invite readers of The Tico Times to join the campaign, active through Dec. 23, to help us end the year with a celebration of a country we love and a boost for projects that are working to give something back. Katherine Stanley Obando is The Tico Times’ arts and entertainment editor. She also is a freelance writer, translator, former teacher, development officer of the Costa Rica U.S.A. Foundation for Cooperation, and academic director of JumpStart Costa Rica. She lives in San José.

The Hurricane Effect on Housing

The Hurricane Effect on Housing

first_img Economy effects Federal Reserve Housing Starts Hurricane USA TODAY 2017-11-13 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, journal, News November 13, 2017 573 Views A report published Monday by USA Today states that Hurricanes Harvey and Irma had fluctuating effects on the economy, specifically housing starts. For example, car sales were up and housing starts were down in September while those trends are likely to be reversed once October data is released, according to USA Today.USA Today reports on more evidence of the hurricanes having mixed results on the economy in September and October. While disruptions to refineries caused a spike in gasoline prices in September, pump prices fell nearly 1.5 percent in October, according to PNC Financial Services Group as cited in the report. Most telling of the effects of the hurricane, housing starts in September fell 4.7 percent. However, USA Today reports that economists expect the Department of Commerce on Friday to report an October rebound with starts rising 5.4 percent. The exact opposite happened with retail prices going up, as sales were bolstered by the hurricanes in September. Retail prices then only had a 0.1 percent increase, according to USA Today. These facts are not all telling, however. The report states that sales online and at clothing stores rose sharply while furniture, electronics, sporting goods and health and personal care stores all experienced drops.However, core prices, which don’t include volatile food and energy items, rose only modestly in September, despite damaged homes and vehicles being expected to push rent and auto prices up considerably, according to Lewis Alexander, an economist cited by USA Today. October data is expected to show a lag.Finally, the report states that the Labor Department is expected to report merely a 0.1 percent rise in consumer prices on Wednesday, which will push the annual gain to 2 percent from 2.2 percent. Core prices are also expected to rise by 0.2 percent, which leaves the 12-month increase unchanged at 1.7 percent. Despite all this, the Federal Reserve is still expected to raise interest rates in December.center_img Share The Hurricane Effect on Housinglast_img read more

TEMPE — With 100 total yards from scrimmage agains

TEMPE — With 100 total yards from scrimmage agains

first_img TEMPE — With 100 total yards from scrimmage against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, David Johnson would become the first player in NFL history to reach that mark in each of his team’s first 14 games in a season.With 255 receiving yards over the next three games, he would join Roger Craig and Marshall Faulk as the only players to ever tally at least 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season. The third-round pick out of Northern Iowa did not truly break out until later in the season, however, and since then has been one of the best offensive players in the entire NFL. He said he learns of his exploits mostly from social media, with others letting him know what exactly he is on the verge of accomplishing.Even his coach, who was notoriously hard on the running back earlier in the season, has come around.“That’s elite company, nobody,” Bruce Arians said of the possibility of Johnson being the first in history with 100 total yards from scrimmage in the first 14 games of a season. “That speaks for itself, really. The people that he’s being mentioned with are Hall of Fame guys, so for a second-year player, I think it’s outstanding.”“When you just talk about David, in any aspect, he’s a hard worker, smart guy, loved by his teammates,” offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said. “Obviously we know, as a group, he’s a special talent, so hopefully we can go out and continue to help him achieve great things, but we want team goals and team achievements as well. So we’ll see what happens but yeah, we like that guy.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling On Thursday, Johnson said his goal over these final three games is to get wins, finish strong and yes, join the 1,000/1,000 club.“Two great running backs,” he said of the ranks he would then be among. “That would be great, a great achievement. It would be a great blessing. Hopefully I can do that.”Johnson, who celebrated his 25th birthday on Friday, is having the kind of season that makes you believe it is not only possible, but likely.Even if, apparently, he doesn’t even realize what all could be in store for him.“Oh, yeah, I forgot about that one — that would be cool too,” he said of the 100-yards from scrimmage streak. “I definitely, to be the only one to do that would be amazing, just to come out, not getting looked at much coming out of college and then being able to maybe break some records.”Johnson, as humble as ever, has risen to the top of the running back ranks rather quickly. Coincidentally, the very team he could set an NFL record against also happens to be the first one he ever scored a touchdown against, as in Week 1 of last season he took his only touch of the game, a swing pass, 55 yards for a game-clinching touchdown against the New Orleans Saints. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Fitzgerald went on to praise Johnson for his willingness to work hard and be coached, despite being so talented.“He’s got so many wonderful characteristics about him and you’re just proud to be a teammate of his,” he said.Fitzgerald has been to nine Pro Bowls and will go down as one of the greatest receivers to ever play the game, and yet seems to be in awe of what Johnson is able to do.Yet, Johnson said made sure to credit Fitzgerald for teaching him how to run effective routes and get open as a bigger receiver. The running back noted that the veteran wideout thinks he can catch better than him, though he claimed that’s a joke between the two.Fitzgerald did not want to take much credit for Johnson’s ascension, instead pointing to the team’s running backs coach, Stump Mitchell. One thing he would not accept, however, is that Johnson has better hands.“I used to always tease him about me being faster than him, but after the Saints game he put that to bed,” he said. “But I’m not going to give him the hands stuff — that’s one thing that he’s not going to ever have from me. No, I can’t give him that.” Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson (31) scores a touchdown as San Francisco 49ers inside linebacker Nick Bellore (50) pursues during the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Nov. 13, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin) That last line came with a smile, of course.In a season that has not gone the way the team had hoped, Johnson has absolutely been a bright spot. That he has played well is a surprise to few, but him having a record-setting campaign could not have been predicted, especially in his second season.But Johnson, however, said he was never lacking confidence. That, or motivation.“I just wanted to come out and prove myself and let them know that they didn’t waste a draft pick and they can rely on me to get the job done,” he said.Stories for pre-game readingThough the Cardinals no longer see the playoffs as an option, they maintain there is still something to play forFour Cardinals landed on ProFootballFocus’ Pro Bowl teamIn case you missed it, the Cardinals cut Michael Floyd earlier in the weekTyrann Mathieu is a competitor, so he wants to get back on the fieldQuarterback Zac Dysert is back on the 53-man rosterScooby Wright sees the Cardinals as ‘a good opportunity’Larry Fitzgerald was not pleased after the Cardinals released Michael FloydThe Cardinals’ offensive line has been shuffled once againThe Saints have the NFL’s top offense; the Cardinals have the league’s best defensecenter_img The Cardinals would like to finish the home part of their schedule on a high noteMiscellany– With a win, the Cardinals would post their seventh season of at least five home wins since moving over to University of Phoenix Stadium.– Larry Fitzgerald needs 88 receiving yards to pass Reggie Wayne for ninth place on the NFL’s all-time receiving list. With one catch, he would have a reception in 193 consecutive games, and with seven catches he would establish a new NFL record for receptions in a player’s first 200 career games, passing Jerry Rice (1,115).– Carson Palmer needs 300 passing yards to have 22 such performances as a Cardinal, which would tie him with Kurt Warner for the most in franchise history.– With one sack, Calais Campbell would tie Simeon Rice for second place on the franchise’s all-time sacks list with 53.5. With two sacks, Campbell would notch his seventh career season with six or more sacks, extending his franchise record for a defensive lineman.Follow Adam Green on Twitter Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires In Cardinals history, the record for most total yardage in a season — including return yards — belongs to Terry Metcalf, who had 2,462 in 1975. However, 1,268 of those were return yards.Johnson, who has not returned a kick this season, is up to 1,830 yards and is unlikely to catch Metcalf, though he is on pace to finish with a top-five season.The running back says all of this is attainable for him as long as he continues to do his job and fulfill his responsibilities while learning how to be an effective route runner. He has spent time talking and working with receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who himself said he would like to see Johnson reach 1,000 receiving yards.“That would be great,” he said. “We all want him to be able to do that, and I think if he’s able to accomplish that, I don’t know if anybody in the league can say they’ve had a better year than David Johnson.“I know the team hasn’t had the kind of success we want, but David Johnson has been a bell cow from opening game to last week — in nasty conditions, the guy still was able to get it done — that’s just the kind of player he is, and we’re very fortunate to have him.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   last_img read more

Terfel like others exits troubled Met Opera Tos

first_imgTerfel, like others, exits troubled Met Opera ‘Tosca’ by The Associated Press Posted Dec 12, 2017 4:35 pm PDT Last Updated Dec 12, 2017 at 7:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Metropolitan Opera could retitle its troubled new production of Puccini’s “Tosca,” calling it “And Then There Were None.”Bass-baritone Bryn Terfel has withdrawn from the role of Scarpia due to vocal fatigue, the Met said Tuesday. The staging, which opens on New Year’s Eve, previously lost its original soprano, tenor and conductor, plus its first replacement conductor.Terfel has not sung at the Met since 2012. He will be replaced by Zeljko Lucic.David McVicar directs the production, which takes over from a maligned 2009 staging by Luc Bondy that had trouble attracting spectators and was retired after just 59 performances over five seasons.The Jan. 27 matinee will be televised to movie theatres worldwide.Tenor Jonas Kaufmann, scheduled to sing Cavaradossi, withdrew in March, deciding he did not want to leave his home in Europe and spend the holiday season rehearsing in New York. He was replaced by Vittorio Grigolo.Soprano Kristine Opolais was to have sung the title role but withdrew in June, with the company citing personal reasons. She was replaced by Sonya Yoncheva. That decision was announced a month after her mediocre rendition of “Vissi d’arte” (“I lived for art”) — Tosca’s signature aria — during a gala commemorating the 50th anniversary of the company’s move to Lincoln Center.Conductor Andris Nelsons, music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Opolais’ husband, was replaced in July by Met music director emeritus James Levine.Levine was replaced by Emmanuel Villaume, an announcement made on Dec. 5, two days after the Met suspended its relationship with Levine pending an investigation by the company of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct from the 1960-80s. Levine later denied the allegations.last_img read more

blamed for the poor implementation of projects and for getting involved in Nepal’s internal politics On Nepal Modi has much to be satisfied about But the challenges begin now Prime Minister Narendra Modi made every effort to be seen as Nepal’s best friend — a commoner a pilgrim the guardian of a Nepali in need and less of a prime minister of a big country By the time he left Nepal he had won the hearts and minds of the Nepalese imprinting deeply the idea that he alone has the will and ability to transform Nepal into a prosperous country His repeated emphasis on India’s respect for Nepal’s sovereignty and the message that missed opportunities of the past and failed promises should not act as speed-breakers in “our future journey to prosperity together” were perhaps aimed at looking ahead at the future not harping on the past Modi knew that all these personalities he projected would consolidate his image and goodwill in a country where India is perceived as a neighbour with a big gap between promise and delivery — and of late a neighbour that involves itself more in Nepal’s internal politics and pursues a policy of “divide and rule” Modi brought along with him Jeet Bahadur Saru Magar — a Nepali boy that he had a chance meeting with in Ahmedabad about 16 years ago and adopted — ostensibly to “reunite” him with his family that was discovered two years ago at Modi’s initiative Jeet had come to Nepal two years ago soon after the family was discovered and was in constant touch with them But Modi’s decision to bring Jeet along get his entire family to Kathmandu pose with them for a photo-op and give them gifts generated such publicity that this affair appears to have paid him the biggest dividend of his Nepal visit “Years ago I came here as a pilgrim And anyone who comes to Nepal once will always belong here [sic]” he said in Nepali before he began his extempore speech in the parliament By projecting the image of a benevolent guardian and a devotee of Shiva — from Somnath to Pashupatinath via Vishwanath — he could easily establish a bond with a predominantly Hindu Nepal a country with a potential for religious tourism Jawaharlal Nehru disapproved of then President Rajendra Prasad’s wish to go to the renovation ceremony of the Somnath temple in the early 1950s on the ground that it would set a wrong precedent in a secular country But almost 60 years later Nehru’s successor took pride in offering special worship at the Pashupatinath temple and spending an hour there as a devotee something none of India’s prime ministers before Modi had done That the new Indian prime minister is a commoner and “someone like us” was the general feeling in Nepal Was it all only part of diplomacy Nobody in Nepal seems to believe that at least for now But then Modi the prime minister was much at ease in delivering the messages he wanted to — that Nepali politicians must rise above partisan politics in making the constitution While he sent across the message that India would be happy if Nepal wrote a federal republican constitution he also said “that must bring poor and rich rural and urban hill mountain and Terai together” That was a clear disapproval of the identity-implying caste- and ethnicity-based federalism — a common agenda of the Maoists and Madhesi parties — something India had lent its support to earlier His emphasis was more on linking the country and its people with its diverse geography culture and socioeconomic strata than wedging a divide on caste and ethnic lines He also maintained his silence on whether India wishes Nepal to be a secular or a Hindu nation A quiet warning and praise for Maoists for switching to “Buddha from Yuddha” — from war to peace — also showed that Modi was cautiously optimistic about their contribution to the constitution-writing “The entire world is looking at you Your success will discourage many who believe weapons can bring about change” — the hidden message was more obvious The consequences of Nepal which has already bungled one chance not having a constitution on time would be enormous After all an orderly society guided by a constitution alone will provide the stability that is the pre-requisite for business and investment — Modi’s clear focus The 5600 MW Pancheshwar project which remained stalled for 18 years after the agreement will see its work start within a year He assured the Nepali side that India will not want Nepal’s electricity or power for free: “We will buy it and that alone will change the face of Nepal… We will provide power to you now but 10 years hence you will remove our darkness” he said hinting India will move fast on the implementation of projects now Modi returns to New Delhi with much to be satisfied about But the challenges begin now as the promises enter the delivery phase More than that the hope that Modi has generated will have to confront the image of the Indian government’s bureaucracy and intelligence largely blamed for the poor implementation of past projects and for getting involved in Nepal’s internal politics The bureaucracy will not refute the allegation But it cannot be wished away so easily The challenge lies in

completely new brand of people running government Mercifully there are no ministers educated abroad Thankfully none of them has been brainwashed at Harvard Stanford Cambridge the World Bank or the IMF subtly forcing expensive Western solutions on typically Indian problems at the cost of the poor Look what the high-powered foreign-returned degree-wallahs have reduced this country to They wasted opportunities to show the inner strength of what is essentially Indian because they never really knew their own people living in Bharat In the eyes of the world we have lost our self-respect dignity and identity All the ministers now have gone through average government schools Some have never been to college Many have experienced poverty exploitation injustice and discrimination at some point of time in their lives It is truly the first barefoot government ever to be voted into power in independent India Where else in the world would you have a one-time tea-seller on a railway station becoming prime minister shaping the destiny of more than one billion people The first example the Modi government must set is by drastically reducing the perks and privileges of MPs Free power food housing travel to those whose personal assets run into crores and a Rs 2 crore annual fund for development (read patronage) for over 500 MPs is costing the exchequer nearly Rs 2000 crore Only the prime minister will be able to make it happen and at the same time stifle any dissent from BJP MPs The time is now No other government in the world has a Class 12-pass woman minister speaking as an equal to almost 120 heavily qualified on paper vice chancellors (90 per cent male) Today as we judge them the VCs are all too intellectually and morally fatigued There is something dreadfully wrong with an education system that produces graduates from even private expensive snobbish schools and colleges who are still prejudiced about caste class religion sex and colour These “graduates” who roam the streets of small towns and cities by the thousands call themselves “educated” practice the worst forms of cruelty slavery and crimes against humanity against society and in their own families Indeed some of them rose to the level of their incompetence by becoming ministers in previous governments reinforcing the status quo wasting vast public resources by implementing silly Western ideas listening to foreign-returned “experts” and making a hopeless mess of this country The tragedy is that they cannot see the colossal damage they have done to the very fabric of this country Now they will call me a “namak haram” because I went to Doon School and St Stephen’s College and I am trashing my own kind They deserve it Their snobbish elitist education has made them arrogant inaccessible insensitive and devoid of any humanity or humility Just because they received a Western education they think they know their country Superficially they may know urban India but they are clueless about rural Bharat Alvin Toffler in his book Future Shock said “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be someone who cannot read or write It will be someone who is not prepared to learn unlearn and relearn” In the 40 years that I have lived and worked with the rural poor in Rajasthan what have I learnt that I did not manage to make my own kind “unlearn and relearn” It was not for want of trying What did the prime minister the deputy chairman of the Planning Commission and finance minister of the decimated UPA government have in common They were all “educated” abroad They were all for subsidising the rich and cutting subsidies for the poor They had no idea about real poverty and hunger and how the rural poor survived expecting the whole country to be gullible enough to believe that the rural poor today could survive on Rs 27 per day Out of sheer ignorance of rural realities and showing extremely poor political judgement the three of them almost managed to strangle the MGNREGA The MGNREGA prevented migration by the millions into cities The bungling and corruption by village officials notwithstanding the rural poor now have more money to spend on food clothing housing and essentials So of course prices will go up The prime minister is evidently serious about improving the quality of life of the rural poor as he eloquently stated in his speech on Independence Day So what are the out of the box solutions that need to be considered urgently The MGNREGA should stay with “Modi-fications” Pay minimum wages which the Congress’s three armchair foreign-returned

example Pass the public grievance bill in Parliament as soon as possible Call a meeting of respected grassroot practitioners across political ideologies who know the MGNREGA from the village level and follow up on their recommendations The focus has to be on innovative job creation in the rural areas Provide 100 days of employment at minimum wages to construct low-cost toilets for girls and rooftop rainwater harvesting tanks for drinking water tree plantations and flush toilets in rural schools by the thousands Construct rural godowns to store food grains instead of letting nearly 5 million tonnes of grain just rot in the open Start community colleges on Gandhian lines instead of sending delegations of “experts” on education to study the American model There are enough indigenous examples to replicate and scale up Civil society is riddled with defeated politicians and retired bureaucrats who having lost their power influence and privileges have started NGOs While they were in power they did not lift a finger to help them When these has-beens have nothing better to do they start NGOs They give genuine small civil society organisations a bad name Maybe it is time to revive the debate of the 1980s on the need for a code of conduct for NGOs The code would expect them to have a simple lifestyle take a living wage instead of a market wage and observe the laws of the country If we are fighting against crony capitalism we should also fight against cronyism in NGOs When the Council for Advancement of People’s Action and Rural Technology (CAPART) was closed down and replaced by a Bharat Rural Livelihood Foundation (BRLF) in September 2013 it was done in complete secrecy The BRLF was never widely publicised and civil society was never invited to contribute to its formation It is designed to benefit a handful of select organisations — cronyism of the worst kind It was so much in contrast to the open debate that galvanised the voluntary sector over the code of conduct and which preceded the merger of the People’s Action for Development India (PADI) and the Council for Advancement of Rural Technology (CART) to form CAPART in 1986 What needs to be done Replace the national advisory council (NAC) with a voluntary action commission (VAC) The mandate of the VAC should be to identify the thousands of genuine grassroots groups who have an FCRA registration and submit their report to the home ministry It is not the job of the home ministry to judge the incredible work of community-based organisations A lot of effort has gone into the formulation of the BRLF

love India as much as Narendra Modi or any other citizen" He claims that the case was slapped against him because he raised his voice against a hike in college fees and other ills plaguing the education system Singh happens to be the head of the state unit of All India Democratic Student Organisation The 26-year-old wants to become a lawyer and fight his own case He attended a couple of case hearings but then stopped going "I don’t want to get arrested and packed off to jail" he said "I will prove my deshbhakti (patriotism) after I get alaw degree" The road ahead is difficult The

whenever he calls that individual someone else answers the call says "wrong number" and hangs up Singh says life was beautiful until he was labelled a Naxal Now he fears even going to college He’s

on the condition of anonymity says charges were framed against Singh only after a proper investigation The officer says police are certain about his involvement with Naxals and are convinced Singh acted against the nation The law According to Section 124A one of the sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) under which Singh has been booked: "Whoever brings or attempts to bring hatred or contempt or attempts to excite disaffection towards the government shall be punished with imprisonment for life or three years" In simple terms if someone misuses their right to free speech and tries to incite violence their actions amount to sedition Since it’s a cognisable offence the police don’t need a warrant to arrest an accused It’s a non-bailable as well as a non-compoundable offence which means a compromise between the accused and the complainant cannot terminate judicial proceedings If one is found guilty they may face three years behind bars or life imprisonment However the judgment takes a long time and during the hearings an accused has to live without a passport is barred from government jobs and have to produce themselves in court on a regular basis While conviction rate under this section is low the consequences of being booked itself amount to a punishment Student leaders who were in the eye of the storm over the Jawaharlal Nehru University row in February 2016 —Kanhaiya Kumar Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya —were also booked under Section 124A Hardik Patel from Gujarat who led the agitations in Gujarat in 2015 demanding reservation for the Patidar community was also slapped with the same charge Its history The contentious section was included in the IPC in 1870 and personalities of the stature of Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Mahatma Gandhi were booked under it Tilak was booked multiple times and had to spend six years behind bars for an editorial published in his newspaper Kesari In 1922 Gandhiji had to appear in court for his articles in his weekly paper Young India In the hearing the Father of the Nation denounced the law saying: "Section 124A under which I am happily charged is perhaps the prince among the political sections of the IPC designed to suppress the liberty of the citizen" After India had won its Independence and adopted its Constitution the country’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru took a firm stand against the law on sedition "Take again Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code Now so far as I am concerned that particular section is highly objectionable and obnoxious and it should have no place both for practical and

violation He can seriously He was there first Immediately after the incident Arnab Goswami triumphantly reported that all the Congress-wallahs and their shoo-flies had fled his channel fearing the worst Energetic Gandhi defendant Tehseen Poonawalla had exited last just a couple of hours before showtime Avid viewers may recall that in an earlier edition of Newshour Poonawalla had silently held up a sheet of paper to the camera on which was printed: “I have the answers but he just won’t let me speak” “You go on like a parrot” Goswami had complained “This is not a dumb charades programme” And finally the truth was out Goswami: “Poonawalla is determined to reduce himself to a caricature of my programme” Poonawalla: “But I’m on your show Drama is an integral part of it” In the absence of the usual Congress suspects the latest programme about Robert Vadra’s dealings in Haryana was doomed to be tame A desperate Goswami made a public appeal to the Congress and its friends to come to his show and answer all questions “Not doing so is an oligarchic attitude (sic)” he threatened When no one came he attacked NDTV saying that the cowardly kept away because his show was all hard question no “underarm deliveries like ‘will you join politics’” The snide reference was to long-ago colleague Barkha Dutt who had asked Vadra rather hopefully about his political ambitions in Rae Bareli during
