NEW DELHI: India’s state-owned general insurance giants Oriental Insurance, National Insurance, and United India Insurance, who together have 34 per cent of the total market share and underwriting total direct premium of over Rs. 33,000 crore, are likely to be merged to create a stronger entity to fetch better valuations at the time of listing. In January the government formally approved to list five state run general insurers while announcing its intent to pare its stake in these firms to 75 per cent in one or more tranches. “It is in a preliminary stage. We are looking at various options,” a senior finance ministry official said. The listing plans of GIC Re, the state-owned reinsurer and New India Assurance is already in the works, the official said. "Consolidation in state-run companies is being explored across all sectors. In insurance, it is necessary that we have presence of staterun entities as they serve the larger purpose of financial inclusion and also to ensure there is there is enough competition," he said.

Israelis can be excused for not knowing about the village, as it does not appear on Israeli maps. Even when the National Council for Planning and Building approved plans for a new Jewish town on the site in 2010, they submitted a map to the planning committee that made no reference to the fact that there was already an Arab village on the land. When they applied for demolition orders, they claimed the buildings “had been discovered” by an inspection patrol and they had been “unable to identify or reach the people who owned the houses”. When they applied for eviction orders, they described the villagers as “trespasserssquatting illegally on state land and the magistrate had to point out that they had lived on the land for years with the state’s knowledge and consent.

The year before that, in 2011, it was 51%. It had been reasonably stable until Obama’s re-election (except during 1998-2004 when it gyrated wildly because of Americansuncertainty of what the post-Soviet, post-communist, Russian government was like). The lowest-ever American approval-rating for Russia occurred in Gallup’s poll on 8-11 February 2015, almost a year after the overthrow of Ukraine’s government and the vote of Crimeans to abandon Ukraine’s government and rejoin Russia, when it was 24%. In Gallup's immediate-prior poll, which was taken right before the 20-26 February 2014 overthrow of the Ukrainian government, the Gallup poll on 6-9 February 2014, 34% of Americans had approved of Russia. No other nation has plunged even nearly as steeply in Americansfavorability as did Russia, during Obama’s second term. The plunge, from 50% to 28%, which is a 44% plunge in the rating, compares with, as the second-steepest such plunge, Saudi Arabia: it’s a plunge from 42% in 2012, to 31% now, which is a 26% plunge — far less than the 44% plunge for Russia.

“These memos amount to an instruction manual for the coast-to-coast, fast-track deportation of everyone in the United States without papers, no matter how long they’ve been here, how strong their family ties, and how much they contribute.” The memo also calls for immediately hiring 5,000 additional Border Patrol agents, asks Homeland Security to identify all sources of federal aid to Mexico over the last five years and calls for the agency to identify and allocate all sources of available funding for the planning, design, construction, and maintenance of a border wall. Under the new guidelines, all undocumented people approved for deportation will be returned to the country from which they entered illegally instead of where they originally came from. That means Mexico will see an influx of immigrants from Central America and elsewhere who used the country as an entry point into the United States.

(57) Simultaneously with the unconstitutional removal of President of Ukraine from power on Feb. 22, 2014, the Parliament of Ukraine, in anticipation of possible protests against the coup, approved Decree756-VII, in which it strongly condemned separatism and any encroachment on the territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine, and ordered that Ukraine's Security Service was required to promptly investigate all activities that have signs of crimes against the national security of Ukraine” and apply stringent and exhaustive measures to stop and prevent threats to national security. (58) Thus, the putschists, who for several months, with the tacit consent of U.S. officials, themselves committed crimes against the national security of Ukraine, after the seizure of power took the decision to harshly suppress any acts by persons who disagreed with the results of the coup.
