NEW DELHI: The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) on Thursday said that it has approached the Supreme Court to plead for a review of its judgement issued over the BS III vehicles. In a statement, SIAM said that it has filed a review petition with the apex court to point out "certain facts" that were not covered in the judgment. The move comes after the apex court banned the sale and registration of non-BS IV compliant vehicles from April 1, 2017. According to the industry association, the Supreme Court has "erroneously construed" an office memorandum from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (dated March 3, 2017) to be an office memorandum dated March 3, 2015. This "erroneously construed" office memorandum led to the misunderstanding that the government had "sent a clear message" to the manufacturers to stop production of BS III vehicles before April 1, 2017, the industry association said.

"But the film was very successful because people are perverse." He said he could not believe the terror he had created when he went to see people watching the film. "Everybody was half underneath the seat watching by the time you get to the kitchen scene. There was a woman underneath the seat with her husband holding her. I said this is not healthy." Scott, however, claimed that he was unshockable. "Nothing scares me. I have a 9mm (pistol)," he said. "If there is a problem I tend to close down into calm. When you walk in in the morning on a film and 600 people turn and all look at you, that is scary," he said. "Alien: Covenant" has a religious subtext, the director insisted. He said he was "agnostic", but this did not stop him making a film about Moses, "Exodus: Gods and Kings", in 2014. "Either religion is the greatest trick played on mankind.

The move by Democrats is a big threat as Republican leaders know they will likely need Democratic votes to pass the short-term resolution. If Congress fails to pass the stop gap measure, the government will shut down Friday at midnight. Democrats in the House are united on their threat. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosis (D-Calif.) criticized Republican leaders for mixing apples and oranges by trying to push the health care bill and continuing resolution through the chamber back-to-back. I assume they have the votes to pass their extension, Pelosi said, warning that they shouldnt rely on her to corral Democrats to support the short-term spending bill. The stopgap continuing resolution would keep the government open for one week as Democrats and Republicans wrap up negotiations on a larger spending bill.

“It’s not as if somebody’s going to be penalized in the agency for violating FOIA,” he said. “So there’s really no incentive for them to stop doing what they’re doing.” Under the FOIA reform, agencies are now required to show the actual harm disclosing records would cause if they want to withhold them. “All agencies that I’ve dealt with thus far – and it’s more than two dozen – are failing to do that,” Leopold said. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who sponsored the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016, did not respond to an emailed request for comment about Leopold’s observations. A spokesperson for the FBI, meanwhile, said the agency “fully implemented the provisions of the 2016 FOIA statute amendments.” Still, Leopold said things are worse now, though the reason for that remains unclear to him. While noting that Leopold could be correct given his extensive FOIA experience, the national president of the Society for Professional Journalists, Lynn Walsh, said it is still too early in the administration to tell.

The Russian government has called on Israel and other countries to avoid any actions that may escalate tension in Syria, after Israel conducted airstrikes Thursday against an arms supply hub near Damascus International Airport. "All countries need to need to refrain from any kind of actions that lead to an increase in tension in this already restive region," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Moscow. Peskov also said Syria's sovereignty should be respected. The arms hub is operated by the Lebanese group Hezbollah. Syrian rebel and regional intelligence sources said the strikes targeted weapons that were shipped from Iran on military and commercial cargo planes. Throughout the Syrian war, which began in March 2011, Israel has made it clear it would not allow shipments of weapons from Iran to Hezbollah units fighting in Syria. Israeli forces have on multiple occasions used airstrikes or other attacks to stop such moves, with the military often declining to confirm it was responsible for the strikes.
