However, the Bukit Antarabangsa assemblyman said the state government has agreed to the extension to allow the federal government to look at the valuation report. Azmin also assured that Selangor would not bear any of the cost due to the delay in the takeover. He added that the state government was also shocked to receive another letter by KeTTHA on March 6 asking that Selangor bear 40% of the total cost of the acquisition, arguing that it should be financed fully by the federal government. "KeTTHA's decision is premature, considering the state government has not received an official stand from the Cabinet on the independent valuer appointed by the federal government," he said.

Najib, on Wednesday called off plans to take over and table the bill after taking into account the consensus of the coalition parties. "Evidently, they (BN) were not serious on pushing the bill. They just wanted to see Pakatan Harapan fall, and in that sense, they have succeeded," he said. On a report that Selangor has the highest number of bankrupt individuals, Azmin said the figure, amounting to 70,817, did not provide the actual picture of the status of bankruptcy in the state. "The bankruptcy status must be looked at again. Sometimes, some people are merely guarantors," he said.

After seeing their offense struggle and their defense soar to new heights last season, the New York Giants ' free-agency strategy placed a premium on adding to the offense. The Giants added five new faces to the league's 25th-ranked offense (330.7 average yards per game) : quarterback Geno Smith, running back Shaun Draughn, tight end/fullback Rhett Ellison, offensive lineman D.J. Fluker and receiver Brandon Marshall . They also re-signed running back Orleans Darkwa and offensive lineman John Jerry. Defensively, the Giants added just one new face, cornerback Valentino Blake. They instead focused their efforts on re-signing key free agents, including defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul and linebacker Keenan Robinson. They also have an offer on the table for the still-unsigned Johnathan Hankins, one of their starting defensive tackles last year. There is still a lot more work to be done as far as adding more pieces via the draft goes.

GEORGE TOWN: Shopkeepers in Penang selling prayer items for All Souls Day (Qing Ming) are enjoying brisk business despite the weak economy, with many heading to the row of prayer shops in Lebuh Carnavon and a few places nearby. Kenny Lim, a shopkeeper in Lebuh Carnavon selling prayer paraphernalia, said items in his shop were selling like hot cakes as early as two weeks ago. He said many opt for mostly usual items such as paper-made clothes, shoes and currency notes but there was also growing demand for fancy items like bungalow, iPads and various mobiles. He added the festival comes once a year and should be done in a well manner to show filial piety for departed souls.

Emanuel Santos, the sculptor of the much-maligned bust of Cristiano Ronaldo at Madeira Airport, has defended his work, as he believes the Real Madrid star is a fan of the statue. Per the MailOnline's Gerard Couzens and the Daily Mail 's Oliver Todd, Santos said: He [Ronaldo] only asked for some wrinkles to be changed, that give him a certain expression in his face when he's about to laugh. He said it made him look older and asked for it to be thinned out a bit to make it smoother and more jovial. But they gave it the go-ahead before they liked what they saw. ... I asked him what he thought of the result and he said he liked it. The statue was unveiled on Wednesday to commemorate the airport being renamed in Ronaldo's honour, and was widely mocked on social media: Santos admitted he had to base his work off photos of the forward as Ronaldo was unable to model for him in person, and added: " the end result is never going to please everyone."

Alan Martin 2 hours 44 min ago Amazon 2016 may have been lousy , but is 2017 treating you well? If you happen to be Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the answer is a straightforward one: absolutely. The Bloomberg Billionaires Index shows the Amazon CEO has added $10.2 billion to his fortune this year, taking his overall worth to a whopping $75.6 billion. There are two extra reasons to be cheerful for Bezos: the first is that $1.5 billion of that came from yesterday alone, while some of us were seeing our wealth drop by £25 (it turns out rum can be expensive in central London pubs). That wealth bump came thanks to Amazon’s announcement that it plans to buy the Dubai retailer Souq.com, which saw the all-conquering retailer’s shares rise by $18.32 on Wednesday. The second reason for Bezos to be particularly chirpy today is that the latest bump sees him leapfrogging both Warren Buffett and Amancio Ortega in the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

He said the departments that truly need manpower boost are the welfare department and the police as they have the laws and ways of handling various cases related to the proposed Act. He also proposed such issues should be part of the curriculum in universities so they will be well-equipped to tackle the cases. "I hope before the bill is passed the views and suggestions from the community, the relevant parties and the people on the ground will be considered to make the bill effective. We do not want to see a situation where amendments have to be made later," he added. Meanwhile, Perak Women Development, Family, Social Welfare, Housing and Local Government Committee chairman Datuk Rusnah Kassim, who officiated the seminar, said the latest legislation will complement the current laws provided under the Child Act. "One of them is the emotion and disturbances related to sexual abuse suffered by a child which is an offence under the new bill as in the previous laws it is not a crime.

It will not be an easy task, especially for products on which the rates vary in different states, like edible items and agricultural commodities, IT products and mobile phones, and used cars. Then there are products that are exempt from excise duty but attract state value-added tax (VAT), and vice versa. All this may need detailed deliberations in the GST Council. So, the rate of tax may not be finalised before end-May or even early June. It would give only one month or so for companies to decide the prices of products in a post-GST regime. This may also mean changing the maximum retail prices (MRPs) of the stock that is already in the distribution chain. Profit Nuts Get GST Bolts The proposed anti-profiteering clausesimilar to proposals in Malaysia and Australia on transition to GST — has further put a spin on this. If enacted, this will require businesses to pass on the benefits arising from reduced rates or higher credits to the customers.

"It was really happening." The majority of the reviews were negative, which was difficult for Bierut to deal with, but he was told by the campaign to "adopt a no-comment policy about the logo." Though he was unable to defend the logo publicly, he believes that "the world noticed" how great it actually was as the campaign went on and its versatility became known. Bierut also thought that Donald Trump's visual campaign was awful—"Bad typography; amateurish design; haphazard, inconsistent, downright ugly communications"—and that gave him added confidence as he settled into the Clinton campaign's election night victory party in New York City. "It was going to be the most thrilling night of my life," Bierut wrote. "As I walked the darkening streets of midtown Manhattan toward Jacob Javits Convention Center, from blocks away I could glimpse an enormous image on the JumboTron over its main entrance, a forward-pointing arrow superimposed on a letter H.

You know Reagan is going to win. It's hard to stop a guy who has support like this among the general public." While he was encouraged by further evidence of approval for Gorsuch among Washington pedestrians on Wednesday, he also noted that it was not quite unanimous. "We do have the left, the hard left, yelling and screaming," Delgaudio said. "The snowflakes are yelling and screaming. The snowflakes are very upset." For him, Gorsuch's foes call to mind the image of Hirō Onoda, the Japanese intelligence officer who did not surrender to American forces in 1945, waiting for a visit decades later by his commanding officer. "I conjure up in my head the guy from World War II, that's holed up in that island somewhere, like holding up for 40 years, fighting World War II in 1982. "I don't know," Delgaudio added. "We've basically got people who are festive, people who are just average Americans, people who are tired of liberalism—they know that this is a rescue mission.

Meanwhile Green joins former England cricketer Freddie Flintoff to discuss their own mental health battles, reports ITV News . Flintoff says: "The hardest thing for me initially was talking. I'm not a big talker. I'm from the north of England, from a working-class family, we don't talk about our feelings." Attitudes towards mental health were at a "tipping point," said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Harry. They added: "Since we launched Heads Together last May, we have seen time and time again that shattering stigma on mental health starts with simple conversations. "When you realise that mental health problems affect your friends, neighbours, children and spouses, the walls of judgment and prejudice around these issues begin to fall. "And we all know that you cannot resolve a mental health issue by staying silent." More than 700 runners will raise money for the Heads Together campaign in this year's London Marathon.
