Despite almost-universal opposition to the statutory spending caps from defense advocates since the 2011 Budget Control Act (BCA) was enacted, defense budget experts on Monday said the limits should remain in place to keep DOD spending in check.“I would keep the Budget Control Act, or at least budget caps, because I think the process needs discipline, but I would raise them for defense and probably non-defense also,” former Pentagon Comptroller Robert Hale said during a discussion at the Brookings Institution.Ideally, Congress would reach a multi-year budget deal that addresses entitlements, revenue and the deficit, said Hale, currently a senior fellow at Booz Allen Hamilton, reported Defense News.Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, echoed Hale. “I think the disciplining notion of a cap is useful. I think it should be paralleled on the revenue side,” MacGuineas said.She also agreed that in the absence of a long-term deal, it makes sense to raise the budget caps to allow more discretionary spending for defense and non-defense programs.Alice Rivlin, a former director of the Office of Management and Budget, criticized the Budget Control Act for focusing on discretionary spending while ignoring entitlement programs and changes to the tax code. “I wouldn’t revise the BCA, I would repeal it and replace it with a broader budget process that forces the Congress to think ahead, and several decades ahead,” said Rivlin, a senior fellow at Brookings.

‘By accepting homosexual acts as a social norm, the dreadful consequences for the stability of our families, the well-being of our children, and the risks to the common good will be long-term and irreversible,’ he argued.The Archbishop, however, said he would not object to a repeal ‘if it were merely aimed at removing all potential criminal penalties against homosexuals’.Importantly, he argued, Parliament must first put in place laws that protect ‘rights of the majority who favor the traditional family’.‘Repealing the law will not be the end of the saga’, he said. Moreover, He suggested it would lead to further demands for equal marriage or same-sex adoption. ‘I pray that we will not walk the slippery path of no return’, the Archbishop wrote.‘Will the Church be forced to accept the promotion of homosexual values and lifestyles in our schools?’ he asked. And ‘let transgender persons use bathrooms for those of the opposite sex’.Debate continuesThe incendiary remarks come as debate over Section 377A continues to rage in the city-state.More than 40,000 LGBTI rights supporters have signed an online petition to repeal the law. Meanwhile, about 100,000 people have signed a petition maintain the rights-abusing law.A Singapore disk jockey filed a legal challenge against Section 377A of the city-state’s Penal Code last week. Johnson Ong, aka DJ Big Kid, is arguing that the law is unconstitutional.The challenge lists Singapore’s Attorney-General as the defendant and a pre-trial conference will take place on 25 September. Singapore’s highest court in 2014 dismissed a similar appeal.‘It is imperative that the next generation of Singaporeans at the very least have the protection of the law that does not label them criminals,’ DJ Big Kid told Gay Star NewsGot a news tip?

About six percent of Singapore’s population, or 300,000 people, are Roman Catholics.In a long online statement, Archbishop William Goh said he ‘felt trapped’ by the ‘delicate dilemma’. But, he said, the church teaches that homosexual acts are ‘contrary to the natural law’.Debate has been raging over Section 377A of Singapore’s Penal Code since India decriminalized similar legislation earlier this month. There’s been online petitions both for and against, comments from ministers, and a High Court challenge.‘I am of the view that S377A should not be repealed under the present circumstances’, the Archbishop said.‘Dire consequences’He said countries that normalized same-sex unions had seen ‘dire consequences’. ‘May we not repeat the mistake that others have made!’ the archbishop therefore urged. The Archbishop, however, did not give an example of these countries.

Sponsored Stories Comments Share Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Patients with chronic pain give advice Li said the safety of infant formula “concerned the healthy growth of the next generation and concerned the happiness of millions of families and the country’s future,” according to a statement posted on the central government’s website.Concerns about the safety of domestic milk powder have fueled Chinese demand for foreign-made infant formula, leading to bulk-buying in Hong Kong, Britain and some other countries.In 2004, fake Chinese milk powder left at least a dozen babies dead from malnutrition. In 2008, infant formula that was tainted with an industrial chemical, melamine, killed at least six babies and sickened nearly 300,000 others with kidney stones and other illnesses. Melamine was added to watered-down milk to make it appear to have higher protein content.The premier also said a system should be set up to supervise the sale of infant formula on the Internet and improve the monitoring of the quality of imported milk powder.Li said milk producers, transporters or collection stations that fail to meet safety standards must be banned and violators of safety laws must be strictly punished.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

allowed to get diluted and the central government will do everything to protect the state’s indigenous people by completely sealing the Indo-Bangla border Rajnath Singh PTI The assurance was given at a tripartite meeting among the Centre the state government and the All Assam Students’ Union The Assam Accord was signed in 1985 in presence of the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi between the central government and the AASU to end a six-year-long agitation in the northeastern state demanding detection and deportation of illegal Bangladeshi migrants Singh assured the AASU representatives that the spirit of the Assam Accord would not be allowed to get diluted at any cost an official statement said here The tripartite meeting held after a gap of 12 years and attended by Assam Chief Minister

President U Thein Sein on Tuesday (Source: PTI) Related News Connecting to Myanmar was the central theme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s talks with President Thein Sein on the margins of the East Asia Summit in Nay Pyi Taw this week The two leaders reiterated the importance of building on the natural geographic cultural and historic cultural links between the two countries Modi however has his task cut out in bridging the growing gap between the potential and reality of India’s partnership with Myanmar The problem in Delhi is not in the lack of a vision for the future of the relationship but India’s problems in translating that into practical outcomes over the last two decades The hosting of the East Asia Summit in the capital of Myanmar marks an end to the prolonged international isolation of the nation that was once among the richest nations of the region and was at the forefront of imagining post colonial Asia Myanmar then called Burma voluntarily cut itself off from its neighbours and the world from the early 1960s to the late 1980s The country sought to engage the world since then but the brutal crack down on the pro-democracy movement at home saw the West impose sanctions on the military regime In an effort to breakout of the Western pressure Myanmar joined the Association of South East Asian Nations and began tentative economic reforms Myanmar found that the membership of the ASEAN was not enough to ease the Western pressures Myanmar turned to China and India for economic cooperation and political support China was quick to embrace Myanmar India which had supported the democracy movement in the late 1980s after some hesitation began a constructive engagement with the military leadership from the early 1990s Over the last two decades India’s relationship with Myanmar has steadily expanded The focus was on restoring high level political exchanges renewing economic ties and reviving trans-border links between India’s North East and northern Myanmar The two sides also launched cooperation between their security forces to counter insurgencies operating on both sides of the restive land frontier that is 1600 km long India also stepped up military exchanges with the armed forces of Myanmar As India unveiled its Look East policy in the early 1990s Myanmar became quite central to Delhi’s engagement with South East Asia After all Myanmar is the natural land bridge between India and East Asia Given the vast and shared maritime frontier in the Bay of Bengal and southern Myanmar’s location at the nexus between the Indian and Pacific Oceans the eastern neighbour has also become an important element of India’s new maritime calculus Despite the recognition of these massive stakes in Myanmar there is no denying that Delhi’s performance there has been less than impressive Bilateral trade remains at a paltry 2 billion dollars Trans-border connectivity projects have been slow to get off the ground Indian companies private and public have been reluctant to take up projects in the country China in contrast has dramatically expanded its economic presence in the country Among the many impressive projects that China has implemented is the twin pipeline system to carry oil and gas across Myanmar territory from the Bay of Bengal coast to south western China Over the last couple of years there has been a significant transformation of Myanmar’s international position Its unfolding transition to democracy and economic liberalisation have seen the relaxation of Western sanctions and a new rush by international corporations to do business in Myanmar The rise of China and its assertiveness in Asia has seen Japan and the United States taking a more strategic view of Myanmar and extending military cooperation to Nay Pyi Taw Basking in the new attention from the West Myanmar has also sought to reduce its economic reliance on China This new dynamic offers both challenges and opportunities for the Modi government For one India no longer has a privileged access to the markets in Myanmar It has to compete with global businesses in the country At the same time as Thein Sein told the PM Myanmar wants to take full advantage of India’s prospects for rapid economic growth under Modi As its diversifies its international relations India remains an important political partner for Myanmar The PM’s emphasis on expanding of infrastructure in the North East promoting connectivity to South East Asia developing the huge tourism potential in the region especially the Buddhist circuit and timely implementation of projects do indeed set the stage for a new phase in bilateral relations Modi has promised President Thein Sein to return to Myanmar on bilateral visit next year By that time the PM should have a

carbon dioxide and other gas emissionsacting as dust trapsrecharging ground waterand promoting cloud formation and local precipitation The Aravallis are one of the oldest mountain ranges in the worldhaving evolved about 1500 million years ago The projections of the Aravallis in and around Delhi are popularly known as the Delhi Ridge Historicallythe river Yamuna and the Delhi Ridge have been the two vital life supporting systems of Delhiboth of which have degraded over time and lost their resilience The Ridge once occupied about 15 per cent of Delhis areabut much of it has been flattened because of increasing demand for urban space by the densely populated Delhiand the increasingly urbanised townships of GurgaonFaridabad and Noida Thanks to citizens action resisting encroachment7770 hectares (ha) or about 19000 acres has been protected legally This is scattered in four distinct forest patchesthat isthe southern Ridge known as Asola Wildlife Sanctuary (15320 acres); the south central Ridge (1564 acres)the central Ridge behind Rashtrapati Bhavan (2135 acres)and the northern Ridge next to Delhi University (215 acres)which is a favourite jaunt for students This is a small part of the original areabut significant enough to make a difference to Delhis environment Howeverthese once contiguous patches are still not immune from pressures or claims from other uses As recently as in 2005the south central Ridge was a barren and degraded area suffering from the effects of extensive mining of micasandstonechina claybadarpur and gravel over several decades Once covered with dense forests and supporting a wide range of ecosystems (tropical moist forestsscrubs and grasslands)the area was subsequently reduced to pits and denuded hillocks Construction activity and encroachment led to further deterioration of this natural treasure In a landmark judgment by Justice Kuldip Singhthe Supreme Court issued an order in 1996 prohibiting the Delhi Development Authority from allowing any construction activity in 560 acres out of the total area of 778 acres owned by them In 2004the DDA decided to develop a biodiversity park at this location Thisthe Aravalli Biodiversity Parkis one of the first steps in setting right the damage that has been done over a long period to this unique natural heritage of Delhi The park has been developed by a dedicated team of scientists from DU under the impassioned leadership of Professor CR Babu at the Centre for Environmental Management of Degraded Ecosystems (CEMDE) The project is still a work in progress An area of 450 acres has already been successfully converted to create the right environment for biodiversity in an urban landscape In the short span of seven yearsthe park has grown into about 20 distinct forest communities with 1000 species of plants Each community has five to six species in the top layer15 to 20 species as underwood and a native ground cover with several grasses and herbs Many species provide timber and products of industrial value All the communities have three trophic (food chain) levels autotrophs (plants)herbivores and carnivores There are abundant insects attracting as many as 190 bird species to these communities About 24 types of reptilesincluding monitor lizards and snakesare also found in these forests Mammals such as jackalsblue bullporcupines and others are common One can walk through these forest communities using six different nature trails which criss-cross the park All this has been accomplished without altering the topography of the land About 300 acres or so of the area in the park harbours forest communitiesand is open to students and the public for guided tours; the park receives about 2000 persons on average every month A programme of planting native trees and bushes is carried out in a systematic mannerwith a concerted effort to remove vilayati keekar and other unwanted weeds The keekar was brought from Rajasthan and introduced in the area by the British through aerial seeding Babu pointed out that keekar has very long roots (over 20 metre into the ground) that suck water from deep down and drive other vegetation away As a result of its introductionthe Ridge lost close to 480 species of its native plants The biodiversity park is now undoing this damage We started our walk through the broad leaf community of trees such as the three-leafed dhak or tesuwhich is popularly known as the flame of the forest because of its orange and red flower Dhak is used for making colours for the festival of Holi Porcupines feed on the roots of dhak or tesuand they even explore the bark of dhak in winter Another variety of trees in abundance in this community is belits fruit typically used for making cool sharbats in summer Kadambassociated with Lord Krishnaand shrubs such as lisorawhich offer their fruit to birds and monkeys to feed onare also part of the broad-leafed community A little further down from the dhak-dominated communitywe encountered trees and shrubs with narrow and smaller leaves Our attention was drawn to doodhishisham and khejdi Doodhi produces beautiful white flowers and yields wood used for making toys Shisham produces the finest all-round timber of India for making furniture; its leaves are used for fodder Khejdi or jhandthe tree of lifeis a vital resource in deserts We learnt that

It is conspicuous with its large compound leaves and longsword-shaped hanging fruits used for offering in Buddhist temples There was also the safed tekarwhich produces beautiful fragrant white flowers with its bushy crown acting as cover for wild animals like Nilgai We also saw the khair tree that yields kattha used in paan and in medicinesand the amla treeits fruit famous for its high Vitamin C content Further downthe trail took us to the 100-acre rangeland or grasslandwhich had a large number of small-bodied birds such as munias and prinias happily chirping away It also harbours insects like grasshoppers and mantiswhich are food for many birds We also saw a gentle slope of hilly tract covered with a closed canopy forest consisting of chilbil or kanjuwhich provides fodder and light woodand ronjh or kareer that provides fodder and pasture for herdsmen and also yields fibre for making fishing nets A spectacular orchidarium in the middle of the park was an unexpected treat A 50-m deep and 100-year-old badarpur-mined pit has been transformed from a pit to an orchid garden Camouflaged by the surrounding vegetationthis pit is now a beautifully landscaped conservatory It has a gradient of light and relative humidity that provides an appropriate environment for orchids to grow on the branches of treeswith aerial roots hanging in the air More than 10 species of orchids are growing in this conservatorywhich is first of its kind in Delhiproducing beautiful blooms with vase life of up to three months Within the serene environment of the orchidariumwe looked at the mouth of a cave (50 feet long40 feet wide and 12-15 m deep) which is home to thousands of bats Our guide entered into the cave ecosystem and brought out the little flying mammaland explained to us how bats eat

Patel committee which has recommended that the RBI should be a flexible inflation-addressing central bank that targets the CPI at 4 per cent is a welcome step towards making it a modern central bank As these columns have long argued the monetary policy framework for India needs to clearly state the single predominant objective of policy The lack of such a measure and the absence of accountability owing to a multiple-objective approach has given us persistently high inflation since 2006 A single defined aim will allow the RBI to focus on how to handle inflation and strengthen its research capability for doing so as well as be accountable for the same The framework and voting mechanism for the monetary policy committee (MPC) will make the RBI function like a modern central bank that manages market expectations based on its views The macroeconomic stability provided by low and stable inflation will deliver higher GDP growth in the long run An important element of the recommendation is that CPI which is the basket the common man cares about will be the inflation rate that the RBI will target There is no point in targeting the WPI which is no one’s consumption basket All other countries that address inflation also target consumer prices A 4 per cent inflation rate is realistic in India and will help anchor inflationary expectations The flexibility around it provided by a plus-minus 2 per cent band is sensible given the weak monetary policy transmission mechanism in the country The RBI should immediately accept the recommendations of the committee on the single objective and measure of inflation The policy community has already debated this issue for a decade and the three major committee reports on financial sector reforms — the Raghuram Rajan committee the Percy Mistry committee and more recently the Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission (FSLRC) — have all recommended it The Indian Financial Code (IFC) recommended by the FSLRC should now put this in the law as in other countries Once codified in law the RBI will be accountable to Parliament and no governor will be allowed to take arbitrary decisions about monetary policy that violate the decision of the MPC That will add teeth to the monetary policy framework of the RBI If accepted by the RBI the committee report will be the first step towards voluntary adoption of
