GEORGE TOWN: The Penang government is not expecting any trouble arising from having two chariots for the Thaipusam celebration this year. Deputy Chief Minister II P. Ramasamy said the celebration was a religious one. He said the state has been cooperating with the police and was confident the police will act if anything happens. "There will be no trouble, its a religious event," he said in a press conference when asked about the matter today. Thaipusam in Penang this year is set to be an interesting one as there will be two chariots, a Silver Chariot and a Golden Chariot, to mark the occasion. The 126-year-old Silver Chariot is managed by the Nattukottai Chettiars while the Penang Hindu Endowment Board (PHEB) is debuting the Golden Chariot this year. Ramasamy, who is the PHEB chairman, said the Golden Chariot had received "overwhelming support" from the community.

He posted a photo showing the former president sitting in a hospital bed, dressed in a gown and smiling. Barbara Bush is at his side, her hand on his arm, wearing a lavender sweater set and her trademark pearls. The former president and first lady have received many messages of support, the doctors said, including from a family who hand-delivered a get-well card. The card is in Bush's hospital room, they said. The couple has been surprised by the public concern. Mynderse said that before she headed to the Monday news conference, George H.W. Bush asked her: "People want to know about me?" "They're very grateful for the love that people showed them, and just are extremely humbled and I think a little bit awed by how beloved they are," Mynderse said. The Bushes were the only former White House residents who did not attend Friday's inauguration of Donald Trump, due to their health.

"I only found out about the camp being held there when I heard some loud music at around 3 or 4 pm, but I didn't pay attention to it. "However, at 6 pm, when taking out the trash, I saw some of my neighbours laughing, and when I asked them what was the matter, they said there were naked men on the field.

In terms of globalist confabs like Bilderberg and Davos, this latest announcement will not be received well at all, as corporatist deals like TPP and TTIP have been at the top of the agenda of their steering committees for decades. American Free Press writer Mark Anderson commented recently on the elitist lament at this year's Davos Forum: Many of the gilded glitterati gathering in Davos, Switzerland amid the towering Alps for the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) see the populism sweeping much of the world as a fascinating trend. They certainly enjoy talking about it. But their academic chitter-chatter is starting to take on a panicked tone over the implications of the common man demanding a better life—a life without poverty in the face of plenty and without nonstop unwinnable wars, among other vexing problems. In other word, the globalist agenda has stalled and they're not taking it well, forced to drink Laurent Perrier, rather than Louis Roederer Cristal .

The next reading is scheduled for this Wednesday. Each year, about 14,000 women die in Russia at the hands of husbands or other relatives, according to a 2010 United Nations report. In his 17 years as Russia’s leader, Putin has overseen an embrace of the socially-conservative Russian Orthodox church and a rejection of many liberal ideas as an attempt by the West to impose its values on Russia. One example was a 2013 law making it illegal to promote homosexuality to children. The Church says it wants to reduce the state’s interference in family life. Marina Pisklakova-Parker, director of the Anna center, which also helps abuse victims, said last year her staff received more than 21,000 requests for help from women who said they had been subject to domestic violence. She said that if it goes unchecked, low-level domestic violence, of the kind that would be decriminalized under the amendment, often escalates into attacks causing serious injury.
