Raisi has served in the judiciary and is close with many hardline judges, and is calling on them to move against Rouhani for his action in the leadup to the election, insisting it amounts to fraud, despite no real evidence Rouhani said anything dishonest or did anything other than make campaign promises his opponent didn't like.

As a result, Iran’s banking sector is now weighed down with a high proportion of non-performing loans, accounting for around 11% of total bank debt. When bank balance sheets grew increasingly precarious as non-payment of loans mounted in the sanctions period, competition for deposits grew. Exacerbating this competition, banks needed to provide higher deposits rates in order to stay ahead of inflation. The combination of forces pushed interest rates up to all-time highs. The debt market in Iran is now broken. The IMF has urged urgent action to “restructure and recapitalize banks.” In the meantime, banks remain disinclined to lend and in the instances where healthier banks are able to provide loans, borrowers must contend with the high cost of debt. This may help explain why the Rouhani administration so aggressively sought to address inflation—it was a necessary step to reduce the benchmark interest rate, which has so far been reduced from a high of 22% in 2014 to the current rate of 18%.

The only way Sirius B would have been visible to the Dogon (and all other cultures) is if it were a red giant a few thousand years ago, according to Liam McDaid, an astronomy professor at Sacramento City College and a senior scientist for non-profit organization The Skeptic Society. If this were the case, anyone could have easily observed both Sirius A and Sirius B in action. Some say the ancients indeed described Sirius as a red giant. But, McDaid explained in an article written for the society: “One problem with this idea is that Sirius B has been a white dwarf for at least tens of thousands of years. If Sirius B had been a red giant only a few thousand years ago, there would still be a bright and noticeable planetary nebula around it today. No such nebula is seen.” An X-ray image of the Sirius star system.

Broadcaster and Arsenal fan Piers Morgan recently gave his take on why the Gunners struggle to keep their biggest stars in the long term, although it won't be Bayern landing his services if he moves, it now seems: Meanwhile, Coman has lifted the lid on his struggles under Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti, and he told German magazine Kicker he even thought about leaving before committing to the club (h/t MailOnline's Alex Martin ): "It was a complicated year for me. I thought about leaving Bayern. It is very difficult to win a place in the team and get regular first-team action once the coach has found his XI, in particular here at Bayern due to the stiff competition for places." Coman dazzled under Ancelotti's predecessor, Guardiola, during the first season of a two-year loan from Juventus , but Bayern's incumbent chief handed him just 10 league starts over the course of the 2016-17 campaign.

Several private universities have been offering the facility since the last two years, said Adarsh Khandelwal, director of Collegify, which helps aspiring students identify the top academic institutions. "Universities like these and SP Jain and Ashoka offer students the ability to be able to spend time in an (overseas) environment, without studying there full time. It also means faculty from there come here and teach them. This exposure in the classroom environment helps students get a broader mindset," he said. While it is a great networking tool, in some cases, one semester goes by too quickly and doesnt give students enough experience, he said. SPECIALISED COURSES Bennett is a founding member of the Babson Collaborative, an initiative that encourages entrepreneurial thinking in action – one of the academic differentiators. The university has an academic partnership with Georgia Tech for the School of Engineering focusing on making academic learning more rigorous and development of specialised courses customised to the Indian context.
