YS Jaganmohan Reddy has left the Congress and the Lok Sabha, and they that much more difficult for new Prime Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy to settle in. If Jagan together with rich friends in the BJP, he can pull some wonderful surprises.

Jagan faces considerable hostility in the party after the death of his father YS Rajashekhar Reddy in 2009. 38-year-old Jagan was the first time MP, and his father looked at the place, but the country's high command chose a more experienced K Rosaiah the leading country. Angry that Jagan was once seen as a maverick in Congress. Many people in the country felt Jagan was too much haste to be first minister, but only last week, Sonia Gandhi chose Kiran Kumar Reddy to take over as chief minister Rosaiah, mainly due to health reasons and resigned.

Jagan YSR father never lost the elections of 30 years and has built a strong foundation for him and his party. Wikipedia reports 714 people died, a blow or committing suicide after the death YSR in a helicopter crash in September 2009. This may be exaggerated, and Deccan Chronicle puts the figure at 141. Although the figures may be disputed, can not be denied that the mass base YSR, Jagan, who he thinks he has inherited. Thousands continue to gather Jagan trips, and so Congress and the new Prime Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy, were carefully enter when you had to deal with his faction.

At the end of last week, Congress announced a cabinet bed Vivekananda Reddy, Jagan and YSR brother's uncle. The country hopes many people in the camp Jagan their loyalty will be redirected to the new Prime Minister. Sakshi, a television channel owned by the family of Jagan, Sonia Gandhi criticized last week, and offers an opportunity to conference rival leaders to demand action against him.

Some analysts believe that Congress was shot in the foot by forcing Jagan to stop. The Mint says:

(Political Analyst) V. Narasimha Rao said that the strategy can advance to the Party Congress. "All said and done, Jagan was the only leader of the Congress in the state, which enjoys great popularity and the audience follows. Instead of always the public will rally behind Jagan, Congress leadership is resorting to shortcut," said Rao. "The leadership of Congress may be temporarily successful in its strategy. But once the new government of Kiran Kumar Reddy said there will be a divisive and very disappointed by the legislators can begin to unite behind Jagan again."

Reports indicate, Jagan to float a new party. Chiranjeevi, Telugu film superstar wore one part in 2008. He met with marginal success, winning only 18 seats in the 295-member Andhra Pradesh Assembly. But what Congress is concerned that Jagan money, and muscles, and a powerful political caste. The money came from powerful business interests within their caste, the caste system and preferred to support cross country borders. (New Prime Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy also belongs to the same caste and the Congress hopes that his candidacy will help mat Jagan).

Jagan father had close ties with the Reddys in Bellary, and when he dies, he is starting a huge steel plant in Kadapa. Bellary in neighboring Karan Attack and Reddy brothers are among the most competitive BJP. Children of police officers who have acquired enough wealth to be able to control the Karnataka government and the manipulation of the composition.

Open magazine reports:

Recently, when the brothers together and Jagan Reddy Brahmani Steel, a Rs 30,000 Crore project in Kadapa auction, they invented more than a business partnership. "We are aware of money and they will influence the community use the PA Reddy. We are ready to put it," admits a senior Congress leader in AP, not to be named.

The magazine also stated that Jagan could help BJP leaders from across the border, and to pull a coup. This will not be easy, since the movement for separate state Telangana own leaders are waiting a chance to seize power, but Kiran Kumar Reddy is certainly very difficult opponents as a result of resignation Jagan face.

South African Brain Drain Generation Back Home

London, England (CNN) - with the ongoing economic crisis in Europe and the United States, South Africa, enticing thousands of emigrants at home.

Over the past 15 years, South African Nick DURRANT said house in London.

During this time he built the company bought property and started a family in the footsteps of hundreds of thousands of other professionals who left South Africa in countries like Britain and Australia, fearing crime and domestic instability back.

But it is one of increasingly returning home.

An NGO set up to encourage people to settle in South Africa says it is 80% increase in issues moving backwards compared with two years ago, I saw - and most of these issues are from the UK.

"I always think in my mind, I wanted to go back. This is the beginning of the end of the day," said DURRANT CNN he was ready to leave London and return to start life in Cape Town.

"There is this migration of my friends who leave the UK over the past two years," he said. "I think the recession that triggered off, and many of them have returned and have nice things to say and have fun there."

In 2009 it was estimated that about 20 per cent of professionals have left the country since 1995. Approximately 800,000 white, with a total population of four million white, is believed to have left the country.

From one of the most common causes are crimes. South Africa has some of the highest in the world of murder, rape and other serious crimes. Other experts were concerned that their career opportunities may be limited by positive action by the government.

All these issues are in London an attractive option for thousands of South Africans the right to British passports.

But it can turn the tide, a combination of economic and social factors create pressure from countries like Britain and the trek to South Africa.

A recent survey showed employment more than 100 000 South African job seekers are expected to return home this year.

Gordon Glyn-Jones, who works on South African newspaper in London, also noticed that he has left to offer more and more friends.

"I think that some economies have played a role in the recession. Making a living here is not as lucrative as it was before. Potential after the World Cup there are more opportunities in South Africa," he said.

But the decision to return is not necessarily easy.

"If you go live in South Africa is committed to other species living in post-colonial state. We live in a country which has incredible difficulty of politics," said Glyn-Jones.

"To some extent, many people react to it very well. This is very exciting. Everything has been tested in Europe, but I believe there are great opportunities in Africa."

For multinational companies looking for personnel, attracting countries like South Africa to keep clear.

"Africa as a growing market offers much more than it was 2-3 years, Stuart Clarkson, CEO of Siemens Southern Africa, told CNN.

"It offers a much higher growth than some of the more traditional markets and that is generating increased interest for the African market at the moment."

Andile Ndlovu, an inspector who came to London to work in construction, I see many opportunities in their homeland.

When economic crisis hit the UK in 2007 he found himself a job. He has since become a partner in the new company, but he was frustrated by limited opportunities in the UK, and seeks to understand what South Africa might like.

"You can go back home, the ship that you've learned again and open her own home, and people. As for as I understand, South Africa, many small businesses face," he told CNN.

Concerns about the future of the country are not completely eliminated. Crime rates remain high and issues such as affirmative action still involves a lot of white.

As DURRANT prepares to leave, he hopes his former fears were unfounded.

"South Africans are big sit here and just look at the negative things," he said.

"All the things that people think will happen does not happen. It is always difficult when you are lifting your family and your whole life here and move back home and this will take some time to adjust to this . It is only natural and I look forward to it. "

Study Links Lower Greenhouse Gas Emissions Due To The Recession

Global carbon dioxide emissions, widely placard as the main cause of global warming, reduction of 2008-2009, mainly due to the global economic slowdown, says a study published Sunday. This is the first decline since the late 1990's.
The study, published in the journal "Nature" Geoscience, is part of the annual carbon budget update of the Global Carbon Project, a group of emissions experts and economists from various international environmental organizations.

Emissions of 1,3% compared with 2008 to 2009 drop is directly related to the economic crisis, says study lead author Pierre Fried Ling Stein of the University of Exeter in Britain. "There is a close link between global gross domestic product and carbon dioxide emissions," he says.

During the last century, human activities, primarily burning fossil fuels like coal, natural gas and oil added to increase the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere. Cement production also contributes a small amount of carbon in the air.

In 2009 the reduction was less than half of what was expected, says Fried Ling Stein, partly due to the decline in global GDP is less than expected. The total amount of 30.8 billion tons of carbon dioxide is the second in history, just below the 2008 emissions.

The study projects that if the economic recovery proceeds as expected, global emissions from fossil fuels will be more than 3% growth in 2010, approaching the growth in emissions was observed from 2000 to 2008.

Last year, the world noted significant regional differences. The largest decreases occurred in Europe, Japan and North America: 6.9% U.S. 8.6% UK, 7% in Germany, 11.8 percent in Japan and 8.4% in Russia. The study notes that some developing economies recorded significant increases in their total emissions, including 8% in China and 6.2 percent in India.

Each Party recognizes its own estimated emissions of the United Nations, said Fried Ling Stein. China remained the top carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels, followed by USA, India, Russia and Japan.

Emissions come entirely as a result of the economic crisis? No, said Dan Lashof, director of the Natural Resources Defense Council climate center, which participate in the study. "The reduction of large countries have been larger than GDP," he says. "This is not just a recession."

Lashof said a concerted effort to limit and reduce carbon emissions and invest in clean energy in countries like Germany and Britain should pay dividends.

The fact that fewer trees are cut in some parts of the world is good news. "We found that global emissions from deforestation have decreased over the last decade by more than 25% compared to 1990," says co-author and director Pep Canadell Global Carbon Project. Felling of trees and destruction of forests - better known as deforestation - carbon dioxide into the atmosphere when trees are burned and rotting.

Rules Designed To Prevent Abuse In Chinese Zoos

BEIJING - In Sanxia wildlife park in central China has two shows a day in the lead with 10 animals. But this is not playful dolphin jumps in the air at Sea World.
In Sanxia, cycling monkeys and lions were forced to jump through hoops of fire. The main rave how they show a lion, a lion fighting a trainer to turn it into a full somersault love.

"Many visitors enjoy animal shows," said Qin Maolin, manager of the park. "Animals are mainly engaged in carrying on vacation ... and when they are tired, we rest."

The popularity of the parks as Sanxia explains why China can not ban zoo concerts soon, although those provisions of most public manifestations of cruelty be prohibited by forcing box bears and elephants stand on their heads.

"We definitely need better treatment of animals welcomed, but our main concern is whether these new regulations can be implemented effectively," said Jeff He, China, communications manager for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, an action group which has tried to seal off fox hunting in Canada and the United Kingdom.

"China is an independent, unified and integrated legislation to prevent cruelty to all animals."

Referring to kill animals, human injury, the Chinese Housing and Urban Rural Development, Ministry drew up "proposals for further strengthening of the zoo management, which require zoos to animal performances to stop during a three period beginning on October 18 check. An Animal Protection Act covers all forms of abuse remain in the design phase. Among the abuses reported before the rules:

• Eleven endangered Siberian tigers are dying of hunger in the cash-strapped park in northeastern Liaoning Province, to where they were fed chicken bones.

• In Heilongjiang Province, authorities uncovered a mass grave of animals - including lions, tigers and leopards - who died of disease and malnutrition in the wildlife park.

• Chinese media reported that more parks, people can live animals such as chickens, goats and cows now to see them fed to big cats.

Under the new rules, such as zoos do not make changes to meet the new guidelines, they risk being registered or prisons.

The rules also prohibit the sale of wildlife products and services to wild animals in zoos restaurant, which is not uncommon in zoos in China.

The last lines follow similar efforts in August and September of animals indicates abuse, which are controlled by the Chinese State Forestry Bureau and the Ministry of Agriculture on the curb.

Yet much of the agencies involved in animal control and the absence of binding legal abuse challenges of animal welfare in China to celebrate, say activists.

Animal rights are often neglected in China, where, despite growing economy, the average citizen a $ 3,000 earned in 2009, according to the National Statistical Office.

Animals Asia Foundation, Hong Kong-based group, a study of 13 zoos and safari parks in China and said the animals were beaten by teachers and live in poor conditions. The foundation is known for its success to the free Asian black bears from bile farms in China and Vietnam, where animals are kept in small cages and their gallbladder juice - produced by the implanted tube - sold as traditional Chinese medicine.

"This is unfortunate, miserable existence," said David Neal, welfare director of the Foundation, making a lot of animals in zoos and parks in Chinese.

Yet, for every show, the audience was happy to enjoy, "he said. "It comes down to consumer demand. The exhibition will continue to be put on a strong law to ban them."

Shows animals continue despite the new rules. Circuses stage most of their appearances in Chinese zoos and strongly opposed the ban. They argue that keeping animals in cages is another form of cruelty, but teaching them circus skills to make them the "animal star," said the China Art News.

Jeff He remains optimistic.

"The whole country wakes up and greater attention to animal health issues," he said.

Qing concerns about the future when the state tears too hard.

"We will lose visitors if you must stop," said Qin.

On Sunday, Chin said the animal park has stopped performing this month at the request of the local bureau of forestry. But park representative reached the common telephone line, said the execution should continue, including new bear routine

PM Accuses The Law Ministry For 2G Omission in a Statement of SC

A beleaguered prime minister on Saturday, the legal advisers of the blame for not making provision for the prosecution of the then communications minister A. Raja for his supposed role in 2G fraud.

Manmohan Singh rejected the opposition replied that he was silent observer of the process 2G spectrum allocation, and his team pointed a finger at the inaction of the law ministry on the request for authorization to prosecute a minister.

In a statement on behalf of the Prime Minister, C. Vidyavati, director of the PMO, said routine movement of files directly from the letter of the day Janata Party Subramanian Swamy, dated November 29, 2008 was read by Dr. Singh on December 1, 2008. Although this statement almost skirts the issue of inactivity.

The only excuse for making a decision on the plea Swamy apparently delayed legal advice from the Legal Department shows that the decision to sanction an agreement can be made after verification of the evidence gathered by the CBI - which is registered in the FIR case 11 months after Swamy wants penalty case against Raja.

Said in the statement of Prime Minister said earlier: "I make this statement just to show how different letters of the author (Swamy) duly taken into account." While Swamy has alleged that the Prime Minister is bound by the request for penalties to decide within three months according to a ruling by the Supreme Court, the affidavit indicates that the file kept moving back and forth for six months , Prime Minister Office (PMO) on the issue of the Law Department on May 29, 2009 to provide legal assistance.

The legal advice was sought before the CBI registered a case of fraud on October 21, 2009, against unknown persons, but the PMO official response from the Law Department after more than eight months of February 8, 2010.

Law Minister M. Veerappa Moily adopted an opinion on January 26, 2010. The only excuse for delay in providing legal advice proves the fact that on June 8, 2009, the Law Ministry said it had called for the views of the Department of Telecommunications (dot) to investigate the matter in proper perspective. Interestingly, the PMO has already referred the matter to a point at 24 March 2009 more than two months before it was referred to the Law Ministry.

On March 25, PMO Manager dealing with telecommunications, Amit Agarwal, wrote to Dot with a request to send the appropriate response to Swamy. Raja, then Swamy wrote on June 18, 2009, stating that his request was not justified.

With Prime Minister not to answer Swamy send reminders to Singh after CBI registers FIR in this matter. With the PMO having received legal advice five months before registration of FIR, were subsequent letters sent by Swamy and the Ministry of Law. While Swamy stated for now CBI case, the punishment is only a formality, since the Law Ministry said that Swamy was referred to the probe CBI, the prime minister to wait until the evidence collected by the agency.

The reply was then sent Swamy on March 19, 2010, stating the reason for which was kept to a decision on his case.

Bank is composed of judges AK Ganguly and GS Singhvi was informed during the hearing on 16 November that the decision of punishment was not taken as CBI is probing. The Court notes, however, that CBI FIR is approximately 11 months after Swamy seeks sanction registered.

"Swamy seeks penalty for filing a case on November 29, 2008, and CBI registers FIR against unknown persons only in October 2009a € |. What happened (in the PMO) during the 11 months between the Justice Ganguly was asked.

Following Swamy said that the Supreme Court had a period of three months to decide on sanctions in general hard passivity and silence is worrying. "The Bank requires the silence of the Prime Minister, Attorney General Gopal Subramanium said that he will be able to explain the reason for the delay only after reviewing the files.

The court then adjourned the case until November 1918 when Subramanium Swamy said that all letters relating to 2G fraud are adequately treated with the Prime Minister. He said it is clear that all documents have been treated with responsible and Swamy received a reply. Swamy, however, objected saying he had just received a letter from the Prime Minister.

In a further embarrassment to the Prime Minister, the court demanded an explanation on his behalf if the records can not be made Swamy for his response. One day after the hearing, the government asked the Attorney General GE Vahanvati Prime Minister on 23 November.

In order to further strengthen the legal team, the Government has learned to have asked senior counsel KK Venugopal of the CBI, presented at the hearing of the case. Subramanium, points represent.

China ordered banks to increase reserves to combat inflation

BEIJING - China ordered its banks Friday to more money in reserve, a new move to curb lending and rising inflation that communist leaders worry to stir unrest.

This is the second increase in the reserve in China for two weeks and comes as Beijing tries to restore normal financial conditions. Inflation rose to 25-month high in October.

Economists say money flooding the economy of a plan to boost China's heavy spending and bank lending has helped push inflation to 4.4% in October, which is over 3% of the government. Politically sensitive food costs jumped more than 10%.

Poor families in China to stay up to half of their income on food and communist leaders see inflation as a possible cause of discontent.

WORKERS organized: Salaries, improving conditions

Analysts expect the government half a percentage point hike will be announced after October 19 to raise her surprise, but there was no word Friday of any changes in rates.

The state banking sector was ordered to allocate additional 0.5% of deposits as reserves with effect from 29 November. Reserves vary from institution, but is about 19% of the largest commercial lenders.

Supervisors ensure that excessive lending is overspending on real estate and other assets, supplies could leave banks burdened with unpaid loans as standard misguided projects.

Order came Friday after the Chinese stock markets closed. Stocks fell this week, investors fear that government will respond to inflation in October from the tightening of economic controls and further delay. After the announcement, stocks fell in Europe.

expansion of China after the crisis reached a peak of 11.9 percent in the first quarter of this year, and cooled to 9.6 percent during the three months ending in September. The World Bank estimates that economic growth next year should slow to 8.7 percent.

Raising reserve requirements allow Beijing to slow credit growth without increasing costs to borrowers through rate hikes. The government uses such instruments aimed at trying to reduce housing costs and other changes, avoiding large increases.

A rate hike is politically charged, since it increases the cost of highly indebted state enterprises and institutions for the financing of local governments to use to make bank loans for investment in infrastructure and property projects.

Analysts say a modest quarter percentage point rate hike on 19 October was intended as a warning to banks to reduce lending beaten hollow.

Chinese leaders also fear that higher interest rates, the influx of foreign speculative "hot money" in stocks and real estate to attract. Unauthorized influx of money intended to benefit from China and a rebound increase in currency, yuan, has risen in recent months, although the capital Beijing tightens.

Adult Health Information

Adult affinity animosity traces aback to able-bodied afore Cain and Abel had their little kerfuffle. And for the best part, animosity of the nonmurderous array is accustomed and accustomed -- but that can be adamantine to bethink as backbiting overtakes you aback your parents acknowledgment your sister's talents for the 4 millionth time. Already you've developed up, how do you handle that constant affinity rivalry? Dr. Susan Newman, a amusing analyst who focuses on issues of parenting and ancestors life, gave us some tips for accepting over adolescence grudges and acclimation your accord with your developed siblings.

Get to the basis of it.

The basis of affinity animosity can be traced aback to the moment aback the additional affinity is built-in and the aboriginal affinity is dethroned: Suddenly, the baby -- added abandoned by analogue -- arrives needing, and accordingly receiving, added absorption from the parents. Affinity animosity is the accustomed and boundless aftereffect of such diff affectionate analysis -- the alone way to abstain it absolutely is for parents to amusement their accouchement in absolutely the aforementioned manner, "which is absurd to do aback anniversary adolescent has a altered charge and personality," says Newman.

However, parents can decidedly cut bottomward on the across and ambit of affinity abrasion by aggravating to amusement all accouchement fairly, alienated allocation (i.e., Bobby is the "smart one," and Jenny is the "pretty one"), and answer cogwheel analysis (why, for example, an earlier sister gets to breach up later, or a brother who has agitation with algebraic gets added advice with his homework). A 2001 abstraction shows that affinity animosity is arch aback accouchement are amid 10 and 15 because of acute crisis and ambiguity during that time (children are aggravating to acquisition their places socially, academically and physically). But the patterns set in adolescence generally backpack on to adulthood, area anniversary adolescent still tries to be top dog or prove themselves added acceptable than their ancestors in some (or all) ways. You may try to consistently accept a nicer car than your brother or to be a added acceptable baker or a added acceptable dresser. Though the best acute appearance of affinity animosity has passed, a faculty of antagonism and backbiting may linger.

Look on the ablaze side.

And there is a ablaze side. Antagonism may be the assurance of a advantageous ancestors -- some psychologists accept that in affinity rivalries, both accouchement feel assured abundant to advance themselves. And advantageous antagonism can advance you to added acceptable yourself: You may accept formed adamantine to be a added acceptable agent than your sister, and now you accomplishment marathons; or you may accept capital to be as acceptable at science as your brother, and now you're a biologist. Affinity animosity may accept ultimately fabricated you a added acceptable student, a added acceptable clairvoyant or a added acceptable athlete. Moreover, some types of affinity animosity are fun. "For years, my earlier brother and I had a antagonism to see who could alarm aboriginal to ambition my parents a blessed holiday, and the added day he alleged to say, 'Happy New Year; I said it first,'" says Newman. "A lot of rivalries become fun ancestors jokes over time."

Grow up.

Like best bodies abutting to you, a brother or sister can do little things to set you off. However, already you ability adulthood, you charge absolute the aggression and access of affinity rivalry. Instead of consistently barometer yourself adjoin addition else, apply on your own accomplishments and well-being. You may debris to altercate capacity that blow on a nerve.

Realize that added dynamics may additionally be at play: Ancestors structures are circuitous and unique, and generally ancestors associates like parents, aunts, uncles and cousins, can subconsciously stoke the bonfire of the animosity -- maybe Auntie Rose, absent to your sensitivities, brand to admonish you how you were consistently so airheaded and aesthetic while your brother was the applied one.

Recognizing and blank (or altogether avoiding) their triggers can advice you bypass annihilative animosity and actions. Additionally bethink that your acumen of your cachet isn't necessarily truth: "If you allocution to two accouchement aloft in aforementioned ancestors who are now adults, they will bethink things absolutely differently," says Newman. For example, conceivably you absurd that your ancestor advantaged your sister, and she was assertive that you were Daddy's little girl. One affair is a fact: "You aren't accouchement anymore so no added games," says Newman. "And animosity is a game."

Talk about it.

Or don't -- it depends on the situation, according to Newman. "If you feel a altercation will set off sparks, or you're complex in a hotly contested, acute rivalry, beacon bright of a altercation and move on," says Newman. But if you alive abreast anniversary added or your circadian accord is afflicted by these old conflicts, you may try and accessible chat to bright the air and get a added acceptable compassionate of anniversary other.

Forgive and forget.

Cut your parents some slack: Parents may be imperfect, but they usually try their best to amusement their accouchement with equanimity. If you accept children, you may appetite to accede how adamantine it is to accumulate them from activity an acute faculty of competition. That way, you'll accept a added acceptable abstraction of the challenges your parents faced. And while you're at it, accord your ancestors a break, too. Your brother cut your belt up 20 years ago; your mother went to your sister's ballet account but not castigation aback in '83. "Forgive your sister for actuality a brat aback she was 7," says Newman. "She's a altogether admirable 28-year-old." Bodies are not the aforementioned being at 45 that they were at four. Your competition, which was already about accepting your parents' affection, is now aimed at annihilation in particular. "Rivalries are in your head," says Newman. "It doesn't accomplish it any easier, but it does beggarly that if you can change the way you think, you can stop the rivalry."

Move against the approaching and abroad from the past.

Instead of airless over accomplished grievances, anticipate about how you'd like your approaching accord with your ancestors to be and again assignment against authoritative it so from your end. "The basal band is that ancestors is our best important product," says Newman. "These are the bodies we who will be there for us in times of accent and charge and affliction so it's not account aggressive the rivalries as you get older."
