According to the document, the Finance Ministry of Ukraine will have until mid-summer to work out a budget prognosis for 2018 and 2019, as well as the budget policy for 2018 to 2020. These changes in the legislation would allow the Ukrainian government to distribute the budget money more effectively, according to the bill’s explanatory notes. Useless stamps The Verkhovna Rada also passed a law on March 23 aimed at reducing bureaucracy. The newly approved amendments to various existing pieces of legislation allow Ukrainian businesses, as well as the self-employed citizens, to decide whether they want to use rubber stamps in their workflow, or not. De jure, the use of stamps in Ukraine has already been voluntary, however, a number of regulatory acts made it obligatory, experts with the Reanimation Package of Reforms say. Since there is no control over the manufacture and storage of stamps in Ukraine, the obligation to use them was in fact senseless.

seen in some areas train companies will give compensation if your train is delayed by a certain amount of time, but that still voluntary. Automatic and nonvoluntary, do you think the industry will go for it? I think they will and if we look at the way Ofcom has behaved in the last couple of years, it has moved to a very pro-consumer organisation, keen to show what.

Customers would automatically receive £10 for every day they are without broadband or telephone services, £30 if an engineer fails to make an appointment without giving 24 hours' notice and £6 for each day a new service is delayed beyond its scheduled start date. Up to £185m could be paid out as a result, said Ofcom, adding the plans would mean customer no longer "having to "fight tooth and nail" to get "fair compensation", reports the BBC . "Ofcom said that each year, there were 7.2 million instances that would be subject to compensation under its new proposals, but that currently, only 1.1 million of these attracted payments," adds the broadcaster Sky, Virgin Media and BT have put forward their own plans for a similar system to be part of a new voluntary code of conduct. However, Ofcom said: "At this stage, we do not consider that this proposal sufficiently meets our concerns.

I dont need to take on clients if I dont want to spend my time with them. There is a voluntary piece of this. But I encourage people to serve.” Along with Kushner and Ivanka Trump, Gorelick represented former Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson in his confirmation and vetting process to become Secretary of State. She said she has not spoken to the Clintons about her new clients. She dodged the question, though, of whether there are people she wont represent.

INTRODUCTION This question’s importance derives from its concerning the validity, or not , of the rationale for the economic sanctions against Russia, and of the NATO military buildup against Russia on Russia’s borders (which latter buildup now threatens World War III ). Nothing is more important than this. On the American/NATO side of this dispute, both the sanctions and the military buildup against Russia have been alleged to be justified responses to Russia’s ‘conquest’ of Crimea, from Ukraine. However, Russia contends that there was no such ‘conquest’ of Crimea, and that Crimeansseparation from Ukraine and joining Russia was instead an entirely voluntary act by Crimeans — a fulfillment by Crimeans of their fundamental right of self-determination of peoples — and that it was precipitated by what Russia alleges to have been a “coup” in Ukraine that overthrew the democratically elected Ukrainian President for whom 75% of Crimeans had voted, and so created a suddenly intensified desire of Crimeans to break away from Ukraine, and to rejoin with Russia, of which Crimea had been a part until Crimea was involuntarily transferred from Russia to Ukraine by the Soviet dictator Nikita Khrushchev in 1954.

Volunteers confirm simplicity The app guides users through a series of simple steps for analyzing the semen. Total sperm count is measured by a miniaturized weight scale that transmits the information wirelessly to the phone. Researchers gave the device to 10 untrained volunteers from the Boston clinic to confirm that it is simple to use. In that test, researchers say it correctly classified 100 semen samples for fertility. The male fertility analyzer was described in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Others uses for app Petrozza says the smartphone attachment could also be used as a follow-up test for men who've had vasectomies, voluntary operations to surgically interrupt a man's sperm flow for birth control. At the same time, Petrozza envisions using the device to test for venereal diseases such as gonorrhea. And scientists are now trying to perfect the point-of-care device to test for Zika virus in sperm, which has been shown to be a reservoir for the pathogen.

" Conway says he has enough quality of life to want to carry on living for now, but is concerned that once his condition has deteriorated, he will not physically be able to end his life unassisted. He attended court in a wheelchair, breathing with the help of an oxygen mask, says the BBC . Assisted dying is prohibited under the Suicide Act 1961 and voluntary euthanasia is considered murder under English and Welsh law. This is the first case heard since the law was challenged in 2014, when the Supreme Court ruled that only parliament could change legislation on assisted dying. MPs debated the issue the following year but rejected any change. Conway's legal team, supported by campaign group Dignity in Dying, say the current law is at odds with parts of the Human Rights Act enshrining the right to respect for life and protection from discrimination.

NEW DELHI: Aadhaar has not been made mandatory for senior citizens to avail concessions in train tickets but the Railways have initiated a process to create a database of senior citizens, Lok Sabha was informed today. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu made it clear that Aadhaar number has not been made mandatory for senior citizens to avail concessions in train tickets. He, however, said the Railway has initiated a process to create a database of senior citizens through pre-verification of senior citizens based on Aadhaar details on voluntary basis with effect from January 1 this year. "The system is intended to ensure that the senior citizen concession is not misused by unscrupulous elements by giving fictitious names and to use the data for decision making," he said. Prabhu said to promote cashless ticketing system, various initiatives have been taken by the Indian Railways. "Our ultimate destination is cashless ticket booking. But the immediate priority is less cash transaction," he said.
