Trump appoints student loan industry exec to watchdog job

NEW YORK — The Trump administration is appointing a long-time student loan industry executive to be the government’s top watchdog for the $1.5 trillion student loan market.Robert Cameron will serve as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new student loan ombudsman, a job designed to protect student loan borrowers from poor industry practices in the student loan industry.Cameron most recently worked at the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency, better known as Fed Loan Servicing, as their head of compliance. PHEAA has been cited for poor industry practices, most notably for how it has handled the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.The student loan ombudsman position has been vacant for over a year. The previous occupant, Seth Frotman, quit in protest of the Trump administration’s handling the issue of student loans.Ken Sweet, The Associated Press read more

One Last Dispatch From The Land Of Chess Kings And Billionaires

Left: Neil deGrasse Tyson, a celebrated astrophysicist, and Fabiano Caruana, the No. 2 ranked chess player in the world, chatted about baseball. Right: Peter Thiel showed up for the decisive tiebreaker round and had a grandmaster at his side to explain the games live. After the match — after the trophy presentation and the cake and the champagne — our photographer and I tracked down the Norwegian contingent at an after-after-party at a steakhouse a couple miles uptown. It was a festive scene. Holiday garland and lights festooned the bannisters and the restaurant was a cozy respite from the cold and rainy November day outside. Carlsen was sitting at a far table in the crowded dining room with about 50 others. He was eating. With a fork. Like a person. It was odd to see him with something other than a chess piece in his hand.I wanted to talk to him. I’d been watching him for hours most days for the past three weeks. But honestly I had no idea what I’d say. Carlsen famously hates interviews. But I was saved. “No questions. Definitely no,” his manager, Espen Agdestein, told us. “He’s very tired. We’re just relaxing.”I’m not Carlsen. But I understood. Left: While waiting for the title ceremony, Magnus Carlsen is finally able to relax with his father by his side. Right: Following his defeat, Karjakin was clearly disappointed while speaking to the Russian media. He confirmed rumors about travelling to New York with a Virgin Mary icon. Left: Magnus Carlsen, 26, at the World Chess Championship’s opening gala at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Right: Sergey Karjakin, 26, tests the overhead lights in the playing hall. All photographs by Misha Friedman There are other internal chess-world squabbles. Agon Limited, the match’s organizer, filed an application for a restraining order and injunction against a number of popular third-party chess websites, just before the match began. The websites’ alleged transgression? Relaying chess moves live, which Agon saw as a violation. The application was denied by a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, who wrote that “robust reporting of factual data concerning the contestants’ moves” best served the public interest. Agon’s CEO, Ilya Merenzon, told me that the company would continue to pursue the matter in court, and was also proposing legislation to cement their rights to the games they organize.I discussed the case with Macauley Peterson, the content director for chess24, one of the defendants, on the floor of the venue during one of the early games. He kept glancing away from me at people walking by. He said he was worried about who might be eavesdropping.The tournament’s organizers have declared their own victory, though, bragging that the 20-day biennial championship had drawn some 10,000 spectators to its location in the South Street Seaport. But that’s less than, say, half the average attendance of the worst team in baseball for any one of its 81 home games this year. And the event’s only two main sponsors were PhosAgro, a Russian producer of phosphate-based fertilizer, and EG Capital Advisors, a Russian investment management company. Not exactly Nike and Coca-Cola. Left: A branded vodka bar assured VIPs were sufficiently entertained throughout the tournament. Right: Ekaterina, a Karjakin family friend, flew in from Moscow just for the tiebreaker round. Spectators in the VIP lounge. A production team from Russia created an atmosphere for VIPs more often seen in Moscow than Manhattan. Tickets were expensive, but there were a lot of young fans at every game, especially on weekends. You had to elbow your way through knots of onlookers to get anywhere in the venue’s sprawling VIP wing. Men in suits and expensive shoes crowded around TVs, watching the games and sipping martinis. The room was at a low murmur — equal parts English and Russian with an occasional dash of Norwegian. The clinking of glasses and the ratatat of ice in cocktail shakers punctuated the chess talk.Like a Russian nesting doll, a VVIP section had been set up for Peter Thiel, the Silicon Valley billionaire, and company within the VIP section. It was newly roped off and closely monitored by scary-looking bodyguards. Thiel, a Donald Trump supporter and a strong chess player himself, and Yuri Milner, the Russian billionaire venture capitalist, sat at a board inside. With apologies to Beyoncé, it was $6 billion at a chess table. Accompanying them: Bennett Miller, who directed “Foxcatcher,” about the wrestling-obsessed murderer and multimillionaire heir to the du Pont fortune, and the Icelandic grandmaster Hedinn Steingrimsson, who was giving them a private analysis of the ongoing championship game taking place just a few yards away.A buffet and wine bar had been installed for the guests from Silicon Valley who’d arrived that day, and bored-looking members of their entourages lolled on large couches, poking at iPhones. Word around the venue was that the billionaires had paid $50,000 for these privileges. (The match’s organizer wouldn’t comment on the figure.) Much later in the evening, some other journalists and I raided their buffet, eating what must have been thousands of dollars worth of cold mini tacos.“Are you security?” the writer Brin-Jonathan Butler asked one of the well-dressed, well-built men keeping close watch over the well-heeled chess lesson.“Something like that,” he responded ominously. “I wouldn’t bother them, if you don’t mind.”This World Chess Championship scene was somewhere at the intersection of Bond film, Trump fundraiser and museum gala. Watching an elite chess match in person is at once enjoyable and discomfiting. You follow the players’ actions — their moves, their mannerisms — for long stretches of time. You hang on each one and imbue it with meaning. You become so familiar with their moves that you can rattle them off later from memory: “queen to h6,” say, or “rook to e2.” You try to understand why the players did what they did. The moves can be beautiful or inscrutable or frustrating or disappointing. You try to imagine what you would do if you were in one of their chairs. You try to predict what they will do next. You try and make sense of their postgame explanations. But you aren’t them, and you can never really understand.On Wednesday, the final day of the World Chess Championship, hundreds crowded into the Fulton Market Building in lower Manhattan to watch, trying to understand. Magnus Carlsen, the defending champion, No. 1-rated player in the world and the closest thing the sport has to a rock star, was facing his challenger, Sergey Karjakin of Russia, in a series of speedy tiebreaker games. The 12 lengthy games that had stretched over the previous 19 days — I attended 11 in person — ended tied and the two grandmasters were back in their chairs in a soundproof glass box to break the deadlock. It was the biggest day in chess in many years. Carlsen, the former wunderkind, was clinging to his title and his legacy, while Karjakin and the Russians were hoping for a return to the days of Soviet chess hegemony. On the fourth game of the tiebreaker, and the 16th of the match, Carlsen attacked the Russian’s king, Karjakin resigned and the two shook hands. It was over. Despite the high-powered, moneyed interest, and its prime New York City location, the match was sparsely covered by the American press — as chess is generally — and given little attention outside the core chess world. It’s unlikely to increase the game’s reach or exposure as the organizers may have hoped. That did happen once in the States — in 1972 — but that was because of Bobby Fischer.The troublesome shadow of Fischer stretches over every conversation of chess’s success and future in the U.S. He was the best American player of all time, and its only modern world champion. His legacy is stained by his vocal anti-Semitism, and comments that he was pleased with the terrorism on Sept. 11, among other things. But in his chess prime, he carried the U.S. on his back while sitting at the board, having taught himself the game, largely alone, in a shabby Brooklyn apartment. And he won.While this year’s championship lacked the colorful characters and Cold War narrative of Fischer’s title run — although some journalists tried to revive them — it did have some of the controversy.Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the president of the game’s international governing body, FIDE, was absent from the match, having been sanctioned by the U.S. for business connections with the Assad regime in Syria. Ilyumzhinov is no stranger to controversy. He insists he was abducted by aliens. They were wearing yellow spacesuits and nabbed him from his Moscow apartment in 1997, taking him away to a distant star. He considers chess “a gift from extraterrestrial civilizations.” But despite the controversy and the finances, what’s really missing from chess is a character.The U.S. has three players in the world Top 10, any one of whom could have a shot at challenging Carlsen for the title in two years. They’re undeniably fantastic players. But they seem less like compelling national characters — and less like artists — than Fischer did. They’re technicians, raised in a computer-chess age. Carlsen ended the match and extended his world championship reign with a beautiful move on Wednesday evening — whether he’d admit its beauty or not — sacrificing his queen to entrap Karjakin’s king. But in one of the postgame press conferences, Carlsen said chess was a sport and a science. For art, he said, you’d “have to look elsewhere.” read more

AMD closes OS Research Center and with it support for Linux

first_imgAMD announced last month that it was set to reduce its workforce by 15%, which amounts to around 1,700 jobs. At the time we didn’t know where those job cuts would come from, but now it is becoming both clear and surprising who AMD is deciding to let go.AMD is in the business of making chips, which it relies on selling to generate revenue. But in order for those chips and associated hardware to sell there needs to be support in place across multiple operating systems. With that in mind, AMD created the Operating System Research Center (OSRC) in Dresden, Germany back in 2006.OSRC’s goal was to be a center of excellence for operating systems, provide support for CPU designs within the company, implement new CPU designs, carry out research and development for operating systems, and be the engineers on hand to help partners using AMD chips. In other words, a key part of the company and also the place where developers worked to support the use of AMD on the Linux platform.With that in mind it was surprising to find out AMD has apparently decided to close the Dresden OSRC facility. That means a number of staff working on supporting the Linux kernel have also been dismissed, some of whom have confirmed this via the Gmane mailing list.AMD is making staff cuts due to the tough economy it is working within, but it doesn’t make much sense to cut internal support for operating systems. There are still thought to be OSRC staff located in Austin, Texas, but the majority of Linux support was handled by roughly 25 staff out of the Dresden office.Those staff will easily find new jobs elsewhere due to their experience and skill sets, but they likely won’t be working on supporting AMD chips anymore. So this really doesn’t seem like an intelligent decision by AMD, does it?More at ExtremeTech and The H Openlast_img read more

Dossier médical personnel la Poste et Atos pressentis pour lhébergement des données

first_imgDossier médical personnel : la Poste et Atos pressentis pour l’hébergement des données en ligneFrance – La mise en œuvre du Dossier médical personnel (DMP) a franchi une nouvelle étape : la commission de l’Agence des systèmes d’information partagés de santé (Asip santé) a en effet retenu les candidatures d’Atos et de la Poste, pour l’hébergement des données médicales personnelles en ligne. La commission des marchés de l’Asip santé est composée de représentants de l’Etat et de la Caisse nationale de l’assurance-maladie des travailleurs salariés. Suite à l’appel d’offres lancé par l’Asip le 7 septembre 2009, quatre sociétés et/ou groupements avaient déposé une offre dans les délais impartis. C’est finalement le consortium industriel mené par les groupes Atos Origin et La Poste que cette commission a retenus, à l’unanimité.Le marché, d’une durée de quatre ans, est destiné à assurer l’hébergement du DMP dans sa première phase de développement c’est-à-dire de 2010 à 2013. Dès la fin de l’année 2010, il devrait ainsi permettre aux premiers patients volontaires d’accéder à leur dossier médical électronique et aux professionnels de santé d’intégrer celui-ci à leurs pratiques pour une meilleure coordination des soins.Le 23 février 2010 à 13:34 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Baleine les EtatsUnis interdisent aux écologistes dapprocher les navires japonais

first_imgBaleine : les Etats-Unis interdisent aux écologistes d’approcher les navires japonaisUn tribunal américain a interdit hier à l’ONG Sea Shepherd de s’approcher à moins de 500 mètres des baleiniers japonais qui ont démarré leur campagne annuelle de chasse.Alors que l’ONG Sea Shepherd (Berger de la Mer) et ses bateaux font route vers l’Antarctique pour attendre les chasseurs de baleines japonais, un tribunal américain a interdit aux écologistes de s’en approcher à moins de 500 mètres. Paul Watson, le président de l’ONG, était déjà recherché par Interpol (le Costa Rica, l’accuse d’avoir mis en danger un équipage lors d’une opération contre la chasse aux requins en 2002), le voilà maintenant contraint de ne pas pouvoir attaquer physiquement ses cibles.En effet, l’Institut japonais de recherche sur les cétacés et plusieurs entreprises ont attaqué Sea Shepherd en justice. L’injonction indique ainsi qu’en aucune circonstance les accusés ne doivent s’approcher à moins de 500 mètres des plaignants quand ils naviguent en pleine mer. De plus, la cour américaine a interdit à l’ONG de naviguer d’une manière qui puisse mettre en danger la navigation en toute sécurité d’un tel navire. Il est néanmoins peu probable que Paul Watson prenne cette interdiction en compte puisque, arrêté à l’aéroport de Francfort le 13 mai, il s’était déjà enfui en dépit d’une assignation à résidence. L’avocat de Sea Shepherd, Charles Moure, a par ailleurs indiqué dès mardi soir qu’il avait la ferme intention de combattre cette décision. Reste qu’il ne s’agit pas d’une décision finale sur l’appel en cours mais d’un ordre temporaire intervenant à la demande récente des plaignants, à la suite de menaces proférées récemment par Paul Watson. “Je foule à nouveau le pont du Steve Irwin”, un des navires de la flotte de Sea Shepherd engagée dans le Pacifique Sud,  indiquait il y a 15 jours le pirate écolo de 61 ans sur le site de son ONG. La plus ambitieuse campagne jamais menéeÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le Steve Irwin avait quitté Melbourne un mois plus tôt pour prendre la tête de la 9e campagne de l’association, la plus ambitieuse de son histoire, avec quatre navires (dont le Brigitte Bardot), un hélicoptère, trois drones et une centaine de personnes engagées. Watson a expliqué avoir mis quatre mois pour rejoindre l’Australie en traversant deux océans et un nombre incalculable de rivières, franchissant trois chaînes de montagne, un désert, des lacs et des dizaines de villes, indique l’AFP. Les opérations censées empêchées la chasse à la baleine menée par les Japonais pourrait donc bien ne pas être si faciles à arrêter. Le 19 décembre 2012 à 20:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

How to have the perfect weekend in Brighton Englands gayest city

first_imgBrighton, found on the twinkling shores of the Sussex coast, is a smallish city that packs a huge punch.It’s home to 289,200 people, making it comparable in size to St. Louis in Missouri or Anchorage in Alaska. An estimated 15% of them identify as LGBTI.Brighton is also home to the highest number of same-sex couples in the country.Unsurprisingly, its Pride festival is thus a pretty big deal, attracting revelers from across the country and around the world. This year, it’s also playing host to probably its greatest headline performer ever: pop superstar Britney Spears (more on whom later.)If you’re thinking of heading down for Pride, here’s our quick-fire guide on how to make the most of one of the UK’s most welcoming, walkable and accessible cities…What to doStart with an obligatory ramble around of Brighton Palace Pier, first opened in 1899. Breathe in the throwback charm for free, but wasting money on slot machines and juddery funfair rides is inevitable. (I’ve never lasted more than five seconds on the bucking bronco, despite trying every time I visit Brighton.)Fish and chips on the seafront, preferably in deckchairs, is another essential, age-old Brighton tradition. I’ve endured done exactly this in icy January winds and even snow before.Now to one of Brighton’s more newfangled attractions. The shiny British Airways i360 is by far the town’s tallest structure, featuring a spaceship-shaped glass pod that ascends and descends 162m, offering stellar views of the city and Sussex’s rolling hills beyond. It opened in 2016.It’s a spiritual sister of the London Eye, and perhaps the ill-fated Brighton Wheel, which operated from 2011 to 2016 and stood at 52m tall.What to seeBrighton is filled with fun, frivolous photo ops, but the eerie beauty of West Pier offers the most compelling backdrop of all – particularly at sunset.It was opened to great fanfare in 1866, but eventually closed in 1975 after years of decreased popularity. It quickly fell into a state of disrepair, with two fires in 2003 leaving nothing but the bare bones of its grand structure remaining. Take a pinch of Lisbon and generous helpings of San Francisco, Key West and Fort Lauderdale. Add the colorful, progressive essence of destinations like Rio de Janeiro, Berlin and Barcelona. What do you get? Why, England’s most iconically LGBTI-friendly city, of course. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Brighton’s pebble beaches are recognized worldwide | Photo: Pixabay GAYSTARNEWS-center_img Gay Brazil: Why LGBTI tourism in this vibrant country is up 11%World Tourism with IGLTA2017 turns to a Rainbow in St. Petersburg, FloridaWorld’s 100 best LGBTI cities: 200,000 polled as Beijing, Belgrade scrape into listRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  : Thankfully, Brighton’s most iconic structure remains not only intact, but perfectly preserved and polished. The Royal Pavilion, Grade I listed, is the former royal holiday home of one George, Prince of Wales, later the Prince Regent. Construction dates back to 1787 and took 35 years to complete; the Indian and Chinese-informed stylings of its exterior and interior are in keeping with the tastes of its famous former owner.You can admire the ornate, exotic facade up close and at your leisure in the perfectly-manicured Royal Pavilion Garden, but it’s even more stunning inside. Combine your ticket with entry to the next door Brighton Museum & Art Gallery (which is full of LGBTI artefacts) for a history-and-culture double whammy.Where to stayA beautiful boutique Georgian townhouse a minute or two from the seafront, Blanch House is gay-owned and found in the heart of Brighton’s gay quarter, Kemptown.Like the Pavilion, the whitewashed exterior of this Grade II listed building is lovely, and it’s even more attractive inside. Essentially, Blanch House is a three star that punches above its weight: think gorgeous fabrics, fresh flowers, killer cocktails and knowledgeable staff.The 12 rooms boast a decor that is gentle and muted without being boring, while the breakfasts are hearty and excellent. Meanwhile the small, plush bar is popular with well-informed locals looking for a quiet pre-drink in chic surroundings.For more information, visit to goThis year, Brighton and Hove Pride takes place from Friday 3 until Sunday 5 August. This is the tail-end of summer in the UK, so a sensible time explore Brighton. But there are no guarantees. Knowing England, you can expect either glorious sunshine or tepid drizzle… Our advice: take a waterproof.Womanizer singer Britney will take to the stage at the LGBTI extravaganza on Saturday 4 August. The US star will be joined by the likes of Ella Eyre and Pixie Lott; British starlets Britney no doubt inspired. Also, don’t miss Tongue singer MNEK. Having written for the likes of Beyonce and Madonna, he’s been stepping into his own spotlight in recent years.For more information, head to a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us .

Key questions answers about the Prophet Muhammad

first_img___Associated Press religion writer Rachel Zoll contributed from New York.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Sponsored Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches Comments   Share   Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Four benefits of having a wireless security system 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologistcenter_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Associated Press (AP) – An overview about the Prophet Muhammad:Who is the Prophet Muhammad?Muslims believe that God revealed the Quran to Muhammad starting in the early 6th century through the Angel Gabriel. Muhammad is not only considered part of a long line of major prophets, including Moses and Jesus, but Muhammad is also considered the last prophet.Muhammad was married to Khadija, a wealthy woman who inherited her family business and was 15 years older than him. She is considered the first follower of Islam after the prophet. The prophet did not marry again until after her death. Among the women he married after are Aisha, who is revered for transmitting to his followers after his death his way of life and habits, and Maria, a Coptic Christian who converted. The revelation of the Quran began in what is celebrated by Muslims around the world as the month of Ramadan. Muslims believe the Quran is a continuation of the core values of the Torah and Bible. What is the Prophet Muhammad’s role in Islam?Muslims consider Muhammad both a spiritual and very human figure who is a model of how they should behave in all aspects of life. The Muslim declaration of faith, or shahada, is: “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” This declaration is recited often during the five daily prayers as a way of glorifying God and sending blessings to Muhammad, as well as cementing one’s faith in the declaration. Muslims do not worship Muhammad but honor him by trying to emulate his ideals.Why are depictions of the prophet seen as heretical by most Muslims?Among Sunni Muslims in particular, depictions of any prophets, whether it be Muhammad or Jesus or Moses, are shunned to avoid worship of a person or figure rather than God. God is the absolute in Islam and shares no partner and has no associates. Throughout history, there have been some depictions of the prophet in Islamic art, and it is common to find his name in the form of calligraphy. His name as God’s messenger and as part of the Islamic declaration, shahada, is drawn in Arabic and hung in homes and mosques. Shia Muslims are less opposed to depictions and images of Islamic leaders, but drawings of the Prophet Muhammad, positive or not, continue to draw ire by Muslims around the world. In what ways does the prophet’s life impact Muslims today?In mosque sermons, Muslim homes, Islamic studies and literature on the religion, the prophet’s way of life and his words are studied and repeated as examples to live by. While Muslims do not believe the prophet to be perfect, as perfection is believed to be reserved only for God, they revere his relationship with his companions, followers, enemies, wives and neighbors as the ideal that humans should aspire to emulate.The verbal sayings and actions of Muhammad are key elements of Islam that Muslims often refer to when interpreting Islamic law or answering questions that may not be fully addressed in the Quran. A saying or action by the prophet, known as a “hadith,” has been studied in great detail by scholars for centuries to establish its validity. This means the reliability of its transmitters and the accuracy of its lineage back to the prophet must be authenticated.What is an example of a hadith?Muhammad and his followers were often subjected to mockery, abuse and torture in Mecca, the holy city in present-day Saudi Arabia, by those opposed to Islam and its message during its early years. It is said he remained patient and did not return insult for insult. This is further exemplified by one his teachings or hadith, in which he states; “Should I inform you about the best characteristics of the dwellers of this world and the hereafter? They are: keeping a relationship with one who cuts it off with you, giving to the one who deprives you, and pardoning the one who oppresses or wrongs you.” Top Stories Former Arizona Rep.

certainly agree that generally speaking hope does help us keep alive against all odds It eggs us on to fight to live to dream and to execute our plans even more aggressively So can you guess why Lalu Prasad Yadav who is smarting under the onslaught of law enforcement agencies on one hand and his political adversaries on the other has decided to fight back with all the power at his command It’s because Lalu hasn’t lost hope Lalu Prasad Yadav PTI file image The never-say-die man that he is Lalu is used to living the life of a belligerent optimist He turns into a political bully the moment he senses there is little to lose but a lot to gain He doesn’t care if he finds himself drowning under heaps of corruption accusations In fact he draws strength from the "fact" that corruption is not all that matters in politics — even more so in Bihar Pushed to the wall he loves to fight back with all the power under his command And remember he has the proverbial nine lives of a cat Even in the past he has been slapped with innumerable corruption charges He has been jailed more than once debarred from fighting elections So what Nothing dampens his spirits That way he is a 24×7 politician who revels in launching counter-attacks on his opponents even when the chips are down He just can’t survive without politics Little wonder then that within 12 hours of the CBI raids on his residence and other properties this incorrigibly audacious browbeater roared back from Ranchi where he had gone to attend a court case relating to the fodder scam "Listen Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah… I shall fight your attempts to target me and my family members And I will not let you destroy the grand-alliance experiment in Bihar come what may I shall never bow down to you pressure tactics" he said Continuing in the same vein he added "All like-minded parties across India will meet in Patna on 27 August to expose your nefarious designs We shall see to it that you all are consigned to the dustbin of history We won’t let you do the dirty tricks against opposition parties It’s an Emergency-like situation in the country" But this ranting and raving apart what’s the latest news from Patna where chief minister Nitish Kumar has chosen to maintain a stoic silence over the issue If signals emanating from the RJD office are to be taken seriously Lalu’s foot soldiers are already busy preparing for the maha-rally in August The aim of this rally is to take the spectacularly successful "mahagathbandhan" experiment beyond Bihar and launch it on a national scale And who knows leaders like Rahul Gandhi Mamata Banerjee Arvind Kejriwal MK Stalin Akhilesh Yadav Mayawati etc might attend the event to show solidarity with the Opposition’s cause Lalu is also closer now to Samajwadi Party’s Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati than ever before He thinks he knows their minds That is perhaps why he made a statement in this regard earlier this week "There is a strong possibility that Akhilesh and Mayawati will fight the 2019 Lok Sabha elections together If that happens BJP will stand uprooted from power" he said Lalu’s body language at the 21st Foundation Day ceremony of RJD had to be seen to be believed He was at his aggressive best Perhaps he was preparing himself for the CBI raids that followed Who knows Be that as it may Lalu’s speech did instill a fresh sense of hope in the minds of his otherwise demoralised followers who had of late been at the receiving end of their political adversaries Already they are flexing their muscles And on our part we are all back to square one and the perennial question that continues to beg for an answer: Is it time we wrote off Lalu once and for all Before we reach a conclusion let’s not forget what Lord
