MNAThe chair of the national security and foreign policy committee of Iran’s Parliament told the media that the Iranian lawmakers will pass a bill, after holidays, about terrorist activities of the US army and CIA. “Considering the unfair treatment of the US, including the Congress and the Government of this country, against the Islamic Republic of Iran and the great nation of Iran, a new bill, coordinated from a while ago with some colleagues, will be proposed in the first formal session of the Parliament after the new year holidays,” said Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, late on Saturday, after the passage of a new anti-Iran law in the US. The senior legislator affirmed that, “as the US army has been involved in numerous crises in the region, including in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen, and bearing in mind the broad range of supports it provides to terrorist organizations, it has become a de facto supporter of terrorist groups who are killing the innocent people of the region to put into practice the secret operation of the US and US intelligence organizations in the region.

GEORGE TOWN: DAP is puzzled over a news report that Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) wants to "lead" the opposition coalition Pakatan Harapan (PH) said Lim Guan Eng. Its secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said he needs to verify the report first before commenting further. The Penang chief minister said PH component parties had during a meeting last week accepted PPBM into the opposition pact. "I think it is better for us to check further as our stand all this while remains clear that Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah is the opposition leader, " he told reporters today. Muhyiddin Yassin had reportedly said a Malay-based party should takes charge of PH and pointed out PPBM was one of the parties that could do this. He was reported as saying this in a ceramah in Kota Kiri, Padang Rengas on Saturday night. On a separate matter, the Penang Chief Minister questioned the 4.5% increase in the inflation rate. He noted a high inflation rate back in 1998 and 2008 was due to the world economic crisis.

In essence, the FCC has done the job Congress told it to do many years ago. However, the cable and telephone industry have sensed an opportunity to exploit the flurry of repeals Congress has taken up and laid out a series of misleading arguments to convince Congress to proactively do harm to your privacy . They were successful at convincing 50 U.S. Senators to go along with their plan. Now the fight has moved to the House of Representatives. There is only one way to stop them from winning.

There comes a moment in some lives when a sudden, unexpected event makes you look at the world with greater clarity than before. It could be a happy moment: a childhood friend proposes to you, or you stumble into parenthood. It could be a sad one: you are diagnosed with cancer and told you have six months to live. It makes you look at the world differently, and some things seem so clear that you wonder why you did not notice them before. In the life of our nation, the rise of Yogi Adityanath to the chief ministership of Uttar Pradesh might well be one such unexpected yet clarifying moment. I was stunned when it was announced; and yet, it makes so much sense that any counterfactual now seems absurd. It was, I have come to believe, a decisive and inevitable event in a conflict that has been simmering in India for at least a century. The great battle that took place on our peninsula was not between the natives and our colonial overlords, but between a new way of thinking and an old way of existing.

"I told the agent, who I do not wish to name because it would be embarrassing, to get lost. I do not sell titles," he had said. He was also not amused by how the titles are being awarded too generously in the country, noting how titles from the Johor palace are the most difficult to obtain, with up to four times of vetting for the candidates. Only three individuals were conferred the "Datuk" title on his official birthday celebration on March 23.

KUALA LUMPUR: When it comes to saving wildlife, not many youngsters are interested enough to spend money, time and energy to be part of it. Eleven-year-old Ahmad Iszuddin Ahmad Idzham is unlike most children his age. He is committed to saving sea leatherback turtles after his science teacher showed him and his classmates a video of the endangered species. He was told that they could be extinct worldwide in a number of years if little is done to protect them. "I cried twice watching the video and all I want to do now is help save them," he said. Iszuddin, who learned cooking from his mother, bakes bread and cookies for sale to people at selected functions. Some buyers call him direct. So far, the Year Five pupil has earned more than RM200 from the sale of his bread and cookies. He plans to donate the money to the Turtle Conservation Society in Terengganu and help save the sea creatures.

The poll was carried out partly before a TV interview Thursday night in which Fillon, 63, accused Hollande of leading a smear campaign against him. Voters throw eggs, bang pans Met by some 30 protesters throwing eggs and banging pots and pans to shouts of “Fillon in prison” in the southwest France town of Cambo-les-Bains, Fillon told reporters: “Those protests are an insult to democracy ... the more they protest, the more French voters will support me.” Meanwhile, a faction of the centrist UDI party, which is allied with Fillon’s The Republicans, was kicked out of the party Saturday for rallying behind Macron. The BVA poll also showed far-left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon gaining ground in the first round, up 2 points from a week earlier to 14 percent, now 2.5 points ahead of the ruling Socialist Party’s candidate Benoit Hamon.
