The latest PMLA case emerged from a CBI FIR of August 17, where Ratul Puri, his father Deepak Puri, mother Nita (Nath’s sister) and others were booked in connection with a Rs 354 crore bank fraud case filed by the Central Bank of India. The CBI had carried out multiple searches in pursuance of this FIR. The Puri family, other individuals like Sanjay Jain and Vineet Sharma were booked by the CBI for alleged criminal conspiracy, cheating, forgery and corruption. Ratul Puri was booked in this case in his capacity as executive director of Moser Baer India Limited (MBIL), a firm promoted by his father Deepak Puri. The company is manufactured optical storage media like compact discs, DVDs, solid state storage devices. Ratul Puri had resigned from the post of executive director in 2012, while his parents continue to be on the board, the bank had said in a statement and compliant to the CBI. Moser Baer was taking loans from various banks since 2009 and went for debt restructuring a number of times, the bank had alleged in the complaint which is now part of the CBI FIR. When it was unable to pay the debt, a forensic audit was done and the the account was declared as “fraud” by the Central Bank of India on April 20, 2019, it had alleged. The bank had claimed that the company and its directors forged and fabricated documents to induce the Central Bank of India to release funds. Ratul Puri is facing criminal investigation by three main central probe agencies, ED, CBI and the Income Tax department. The tax department has attached a number of his alleged ‘benami’ assets in the recent past and has charged him with benefiting from the purported kickbacks generated in the Rs 3,600 crore VVIP choppers deal case, cancelled by India in 2014 on charges of corruption.

Manger sous le coup de l’émotion favorise la prise de poidsAujourd’hui, les chercheurs nutritionnistes s’intéressent à “l’émotionalité alimentaire”, c’est à dire le fait de manger sous le coup de l’émotion, et son association avec le surpoids. Il semblerait en effet que manger en éprouvant des émotions négatives favorise les kilos en trop.Si l’on savait déjà que la dépression a tendance à favoriser la prise de poids, manger en ressentant des émotions négatives peut également y contribuer. C’est ce qu’explique une étude mise en ligne par la revue American Journal of Clinical Nutrition et basée sur un échantillon de 35.641 adultes français participant à l’étude NutriNet-Santé. Celle-ci confirme en effet que les facteurs psychologiques influent sur le surpoids et l’obésité. À lire aussiPourquoi certains s’évanouissent-ils à la vue du sang ?Selon les données recueillies grâce un questionnaire soumis aux participants, 52% des femmes ont tendance à manger sous le coup de l’émotion, lorsqu’elles se sentent seules, nerveuses, déprimées, contre 20% des hommes. Les résultats montrent également que, globalement, les personnes qui suivent un régime ont davantage tendance à manger sous le coup de l’émotion (71%) que ceux qui ont fait un régime par le passé (58%) ou que les personnes qui disent n’avoir jamais fait de régime amaigrissant (35%). Ainsi, la scientifique Sandrine Péneau qui fait partie de l’équipe de coordination de l’étude NutriNet-Santé, souligne que même si celles qui n’ont jamais fait de régime sont moins nombreuses à manger sous le coup de l’émotion, celles qui le font sont bien plus souvent en surpoids. “Parmi les femmes qui n’ont jamais fait de régime, celles qui ont une forte émotionalité alimentaire ont cinq fois plus de risque d’être en surpoids en comparaison de celles qui ne mangent jamais sous le coup de l’émotion”, explique t-elle citée par l’AFP. Les hommes moins sensibles à l’émotionalité alimentaire Le risque est également trois fois plus élevé chez les femmes ayant déjà fait un régime, et 2,6 fois plus élevé chez celles qui en suivent un actuellement. En revanche, chez les hommes, l’association entre surpoids et “émotionalité alimentaire” ne varie pas selon qu’ils font ou non régime. Leur risque d’être en surpoids est de ce fait, environ 2 fois plus élevé pour ceux qui déclarent manger fréquemment sous le coup de l’émotion par rapport aux autres.Le 12 avril 2013 à 15:51 • Maxime Lambert

Soldiers with the Army’s 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne) 25th Infantry Division at a deployment ceremony at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Sept. 8th, 2017 (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media)Though the holidays are still a long way off, a few civilian elves in Anchorage are already busy assembling presents for soldiers deployed overseas. With thousands of Alaska-based troops stationed in Afghanistan, organizations are rushing to get everything from board games to beef jerky boxed and sent abroad ASAP.Listen nowThe Armed Services YMCA of Alaska has been in the state since the 1940s, and part of its mission is filling in gaps left between the military and service members. For example, holiday cheer.“Anything from home that just sparks a little bit of joy in your heart gives them relief,” Sarah Riffer explained. She’s the executive director of ASYMCA Alaska, which runs programs to support service-members and their families. That includes Operation Frosty Warrior, an annual effort to fill boxes ahead of the holidays with supplies that can be hard to come by while troops are deployed.“Playing cards, travel board games, anything like that,” Riffer added. “Books.”For soldiers based in Alaska, many of whom have family members living here, tokens of home can be a boost, according to Riffer. That might include hometown newspapers, smoked salmon, and jerky.Riffer’s organization partners with BP to collect money and supplies. Boxes have to be packed and palatalized before November 22nd in order to make it to their final destinations around the globe. In a given year, around 1,000 Alaska soldiers are deployed overseas. But this year, with the 4th Brigade Combat Team 25th Infantry Division from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson on a combat deployment in Afghanistan, that number is significantly higher — 3,100 this year.“This is the largest deployment in the seven years that this program has been going on, which is why we’re reaching out to the community because we really need everyone’s help,” Riffer said.ASYMCA in Alaska is collecting money, or will pick up boxes and supplies from individuals and participating organizations. You can find details and a wishlist on the Alaska Armed Services YMCA’s website.
MIAMI: At a forum on Latino issues, eight Democratic candidates for president on Friday attacked Trump administration policies that led to the separation of families and detention of children. The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials hosted the Miami forum for candidates including U.S. senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren to attack the government’s crackdown on illegal immigration, a day after President Donald Trump claimed his support among Latino voters has “gone way up,” without offering supporting evidence. Also Read – Shahid Afridi joins ‘Kashmir Hour’ in military uniform Advertise With Us Sanders promised to “use all of the powers of the presidency” to “undo the fear and the damage” he says Trump has caused, referring also to Trump’s pledge earlier this week that he would begin deporting millions of immigrants who are in the country illegally. “Let us not forget that this administration is ripping children from the arms of their mothers,” Sanders said. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us “Some of those children have died.” Government facilities at the border are overcrowded with migrants, mostly from Central America, who are crossing from Mexico to request asylum. Five children have died since late last year after being detained by Customs and Border Protection. Beto O’Rourke, who represented El Paso, Texas in the U.S. House from 2013 to 2019, said Friday that he would reunite every single family that had been separated and end the detention of children at the border by issuing executive orders. Advertise With Us Lawyers who interviewed 60 children at a Border Patrol facility near El Paso told The Associated Press that three minors were told by an agent to take care of a two-year-old boy who was alone and had wet his pants lacking a diaper. “We will no longer put children in cages,” O’Rourke said. The “zero tolerance” policy implemented last year caused mass outrage after it led to the separation of children from their parents because they were being criminally prosecuted for crossing the border illegally. The meeting of presidential hopefuls takes place five days before the first Democratic debate, also in Miami next week. Florida is a decisive state. Trump launched his reelection campaign in Orlando earlier this week revisiting the hardline immigration themes of 2015 and 2016 by warning about deporting millions. At an interview with the Spanish-language network Telemundo that aired Thursday, Trump said Hispanics also want toughness at the border, saying his support in the group has risen. The White House did not provide supporting polls for Trump’s claim, and the most recent AP-NORC poll conducted in mid-June shows him with 26 per cent support among Hispanics. Immigration may be one of the most pressing problems for Hispanics in other states, but Florida’s large number of Cuban-Americans, a strong voting bloc, have applauded Trump’s decision to impose new restrictions on travel and levy sanctions against Venezuela’s socialist government. Trump will be launching a new effort to appeal to Latino voters next week in Miami. Warren was questioned Friday for lacking a plan to help immigrants, but the senator said her promise to ban private companies from running prisons and detention centers tackles “systematic problems” that affect that population. The Massachusetts senator said more than two-thirds of the people who are currently detained for their immigration status are held in for-profit detention facilities. “You’ve just created a group that makes its money by seeing more people locked up,” she said. “I say get the profits out of locking people up.”
Efforts to raise both the federal and state minimum wage continued this month. At the federal level, information from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported a change could have wide-reaching positive and negative effects. “The $10.10 option would have substantially larger effects on employment and income than the $9.00 option would – because more workers would see their wages rise; the change in their wages would be greater,” concluded the CBO in their 39-page report. “Once fully implemented in the second half of 2016, the $10.10 option would reduce total employment by about 500,000 workers, or 0.3 percent.” Even though 500,000 could become unemployed as employers decrease their work force to increase the minimum wage, a total of 900,000 people would move to the positive side of the poverty threshold, where 45 million people are currently making less than $23,550 a year for a family of four. With the $9 option, the CBO found that anywhere from 100,000 to 1 million people could end up unemployed. However, roughly 7.6 million low-wage earners would see an increase totaling about $1 billion extra dollars for families living in poverty. With the $9 option, 300,000 people would be lifted out of their current economic situation below the poverty threshold. Though the minimum wage debate may seem new, the fight for a livable wage has been repeated since 1938, when the Fair Labor Standards Act set a minimum wage for workers at 25 cent. It has been revised, amended, and broadened numerous times, and now includes service workers, retail, transit, construction, health employees, and many others. “During the 1960s a full-time minimum wage income was enough to keep a family of three above the federal poverty line,” said David Cooper, an analyst with the Economic Policy Institute, who testified Feb. 17 in front of the Maryland Senate. “Today’s minimum wage of $7.25 is worth about 23 percent less than what it was worth in the late 1960s. The value of the minimum wage at its high point in 1968 equaled about $9.40 in today’s dollars. Cooper said an increase could positively affect the entire economy. “More broadly, when you raise the minimum wage, what you’re essentially doing is shifting income from business owners or corporations to low-wage workers,” Cooper told the AFRO. “We know that low-wage workers are more likely spend every additional dollar that they receive just because they have to in order to pay their bills. You’re transferring money from entities less likely to spend it and more likely to save it, to entities more likely to spend it all right away. That actually can boost consumer spending and provide a modest boost to overall economic growth.” In Maryland’s General Assembly, both the House and Senate are working on measures to increase the federal minimum wage for workers. In Montgomery and Prince George’s counties lawmakers have already decided to raise the minimum wage to $11.50. Del. Aisha Braveboy, who sponsored HB 187, said lawmakers are working out problems with the bill, but believes it will get a committee vote by early to mid-March and then proceed to the House floor. Issues being addressed are how to deal with counties that have already adjusted their minimum wage, how Maryland will handle inflation, and a better system to compensate workers who earn tips. Currently, employees who earn tips are paid 50 percent of the minimum wage.”In theory, the employee would make up the rest of that in tips,” Braveboy said before acknowledging that tips don’t always add up. “The proposal is to raise that credit to 70 percent of the minimum wage. Instead of the employer paying 50 percent they would pay 70 percent.” While lawmakers haggle over details, a group of 19 business owners in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. area isn’t waiting for laws to force a pay increase. In a move focused on helping their employees earn livable wages, members of the President’s Roundtable, a group of minority business owners, announced plans to raise the minimum wage for their employees – even if a bill isn’t passed. “We want to be very clear that this is not a political for us – it’s a human rights issue,” said Sheila Brooks, leader of the President’s Roundtable. “Of the 19 members, we have more than 1,200 employees collectively. Each and every one of us did agree to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by 2015 in support of House Bill 187.” Brooks is the founder and operator of SRB Communications, a communications agency, but one-third of the Roundtable members are contractors, employing hundreds of blue-collar construction workers. “We want to lead the way so that we can hopefully inspire other businesses to pay the living wage. We would like to challenge other business owners – particularly minority business owners – to do what’s right for their community, for the economy, and our country, that is to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.”

up tonsured and forced to eat human excreta" Jaiswal added that recently an octogenarian in Daltonganj district was brutally beaten by villagers after a local youth died of cancer Vulnerable villages being identified The state government has geared up awareness campaigns to curb the age-old superstition including organising Nukkad Nataks putting up hoardings and flagging off a number of awareness vehicles across the state Jharkhand’s women and child development department has also directed deputy commissioners and superintendents of police of all 24 districts in the state to survey and identify the vulnerable spots in their districts where witch hunting is rampant "The district administration officials are to identify the vulnerable spots and launch awareness drives in the areas Also they have to identify the witch doctors and link them to various employment schemes so that they quit their ‘practice’" said women and child development department secretary Vinay Choubey While Jaiswal agrees that awareness is the only way to eradicate the social evil completely from districts in the state he feels that the Witchcraft Prevention Act 2001 has not proven to be very helpful "The punishment for branding a woman a witch and getting her treated by a witch doctor under the Act is only an imprisonment of three months to one year and a fine of Rs 2000 This is not enough We need a stricter law in order to curb this practice" said Jaiswal Jharkhand police figures show that six people have been killed for allegedly practising witchcraft this year Image courtesy Kelly Kislaya Land grab behind most witch hunts Jaiswal pointed out that property disputes and attempts of land grabbing are among the primary reasons leading to individuals being branded as witches In Kochbong village in Namkom one Sunita Devi and her family has been accused of witchcraft Traumatised by constant taunts Sunita’s husband lost his mental stability and had to be admitted to the Ranchi Institute of Neuro-Psychiatry and Allied Sciences (RINPAS) for treatment For every accident on Ring Road villagers blame Sunita’s family who own several acres of land valued at almost Rs 1 crore along the road The rumour about the family was spread by land dealers so that villagers chase the family away and their land can easily be grabbed We had to interfere and threaten villagers with police action in order to save the family" said Jaiswal "We conducted a survey in 10 villages and found that every village has at least five to 10 ‘witches’; most of whom are widowed and living alone on their properties Rumours of them being witches are spread to grab their land" said Sanjay Mishra head of the Bharatiya Kisan Sangh (BKS) a social welfare organisation The BKS has been working against witch-hunting in 10 villages under Murhu and Torpa blocks in Khunti for the last five months These villages are dominated by the Munda tribe and witch hunts are a common practice in the area Illiteracy and lack of awareness are some other avenues that need to be dealt with in order to completely eradicate the superstitious evil "When someone falls ill in a village she or he is not taken to a medical practitioner but instead to a witch doctor When the witch doctor fails to cure the person he blames the most vulnerable woman in the village of practising witchcraft" said Mishra Entire families victimised "I was beaten tortured and kicked out of the village I went to the police but they refused to register my FIR The sub-divisional officer of the area heard my plea and finally took action against the culprits" said 70-year-old Chhutni Mahato a resident of Saraikela who was forced to drink urine and banished from her village for allegedly practising witchcraft in 1995 Presently Mahato works with ASHA which runs a shelter home for children in need in Ranchi At least eight children of branded ‘witches’ are living in the home as their mothers were forced to flee their villages Jaiswal said entire families and apart from being physically abused individuals are often forced to undergo tremendous emotional torture "Villagers don’t eat the food touched by the ‘witches’ nobody crosses from their door children are hidden away from them" he said "A woman of Khunti who was branded a witch had approached us with her three children begging us to take care of them as she cannot return to her village and has nowhere to go We took the children in and she moved to a relative’s house in a different village" he added Jharkhand has been on top when it comes to the number of people killed for practising alleged witchcraft for four consecutive years between 2013 and 2016 Image courtesy Kelly Kislaya In Raisimla village 35-year-old twins Anita and Sunita (names changed) remain unmarried as nobody wants to wed the daughters of a witch; their mother was branded a witch a few years ago and forced to leave the village While not much data is available on when witch hunts actually began among tribal communities in the region it definitely goes back to many centuries FR Fidelis de Sabriefly mentions the ill-treatment of two women from Ranchi on suspicions of being witches that came to light in 1890 in his 1975 book Crisis in Chhota Nagpur under ‘The Witchcraft Case’ However authorities concerned started taking major steps to eradicate the practice only after a dozen people were killed in Chaibasa for allegedly practising witchcraft in 1992 "BKS along with the district administration had organised a conference in Ranchi This was the first time that people branded as witches and witch doctors were brought together on the same platform to discuss this social evil The then SSP Amitabh Chaudhary and DC Uday Pratap Singh put in tremendous efforts to spread awareness" said Mishra The author isa member ofThe NewsCart?
