The Rohingya Muslim insurgency, whose sneak attacks in October killed nine border guard officers in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State, issued a detailed list of demands this week that struck a far more pragmatic note while describing the use of violence in the past as self-defense. Ata Ullah, the commander of the Faith Movement, now rebranded as the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), signed the March 29 list, which has been verified and seems to have been timed to the anniversary of Aung San Suu Kyi’s first year in power. Arakan is another name for Rakhine. A new presentation In a preamble to the 20 demands, the ARSA said it does not associate with any terrorist organizations, eschews attacks against civilians and religious minorities, and wants to stateloud and clear” that its “defensive attacks” are only aimed at the “oppressive Burmese regime.

While the model law is available, few fundamental aspects, such as the states where tax has to be paid by service providers having multiple offices, treatment of current excise incentives, offset of tax already paid on transition stock, etc, are still unclear. On March 24, GoI announced setting up of working groups for certain sectors including banking, telecom, exports, IT/ITeS, transport and logistics, and textiles. The working groups have been tasked to meet the industry associations, professionals and concerned administrative ministries to look at key issues and provide suggestions. This list of working groups may be expanded further to include few other sectors such as real estate and FMCG. The working groups have to submit their report by April 10, which looks too short a time for a meaningful interaction and detailed analysis of complex sector-specific issues.

What I would say is I have detailed discussions with the aviation industry and have had in the last few weeks. I am aware of the challenges they face in their business models and the Government listens carefully to them about how best to approach this important sector in the course of negotiations. Thank you, Mr Speaker. Like the aviation sector, the maritime industry is heavily reliant on the EU. The shipping sector warned Brexit might cost the UK shipping companies the right to trade in EU coastal waters,.

Founded in 1997 by Shrikant Pandit, a Bangalore-based entrepreneur, the company sold another 10% stake around the same time to one JP Nayak. Articles of association of the company suggest that for all practical purposes NSE's and Nayak's shareholdings were considered similar. Yet, while Nayak shelled out `64.82 as premium per share NSE paid `46.12 apiece. Shrikant Pandit told ET that the claims brought against Omnesys were baseless. “Omnesys maintains the utmost transparency in its business conduct, offering services to customers with honesty and integrity,'' he said in response to a detailed questionnaire from ET. The whistleblower states Omnesys was so sure of the early bird strategy that it had profit sharing arrangements with clients. It was con necting early by continuously pinging the servers and logging in the instant they came on, a perfectly legitimate strategy that others were slow to catch on.

The group advocated reforms to reign in "unethical behavior" of government attorneys and wrest control from political activists. The group also said addressing "ideological rot" that was reported by the department's inspector general in 2013 should be a top priority. Tom Perez, now the chair of the Democratic National Committee, served as the assistant attorney general during the period covered in the report. "The 250 page report detailed the toxic manner in which the Division placed preferences on voting rights victim cohorts and bullied employees from daring to enforce the law in a colorblind fashion," the letter states. When Perez led the agency, employees "did not believe civil rights laws should protect all Americans," the letter continues.

We selected PayPal and parted with our cash as usual. Once the process was complete, Namecheap's site displayed clear details on what we'd just bought, and gave us links to tutorials on using our hosting account or uploading an existing site right away. The highlight was probably the clear, detailed and very readable email which arrived moments later. While other hosts send you a receipt and a few web links, Namecheap gave us 700 words of essential information on server names, IP addresses, login information, FAQs and more. This mail is a great reference for later and a real time-saver. Creating a website Namecheap's shared hosting accounts are managed from a standard cPanel console. That's not as beginner-friendly as some custom frontends, but experienced users will feel at home right away, and even novices will quickly figure out the key basics.

For every word that follows a certain modern spelling with the suffix, the authors looked at each instance in their sample and kept track of the word's spelling. They found a number of spellings for each suffix over time. However, for each suffix one form of spelling eventually won out over another and followed a pattern that led to consistency in spelling. As a follow-up to the research detailed in the paper, the linguists are now testing their findings on fluent readers of English to see if they use the regularities found and to see if those learning English can learn to read more quickly and fluently with consistent spellings. The German Academic Exchange Service supported the work, which concluded while Kristian Berg was a postdoctoral fellow at Stony Brook University.
