US President Obama hopes to stoke optimism in farewell union address

first_imgWASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. President Barack Obama will use his final State of the Union address Tuesday, one of the last grandstand occasions of his presidency, to define his legacy and make the case for optimism amid an angst-ridden election race.Seven years ago, a youthful President Obama’s first address to the U.S. Congress surprised some with gloomy talk of shaken confidence, a weakened economy and uncertain times ahead. His farewell State of the Union address may surprise for its optimism.Senior White House officials promise an unorthodox speech. Obama will ditch the traditional hour-long laundry list of the year’s legislative priorities and instead look beyond his presidency.For a president who has leaned heavily — critics say too heavily — on dazzling rhetorical skills to push his agenda, it will be one of the last chances to define his presidency before a national audience.Around 30 million viewers are expected to watch live, an audience that may only be matched during the Democratic nominating convention later this year, when he passes the torch to the next presidential hopeful.To reach the broadest audience, Obama’s aides will amplify his message across print, television and innovative digital platforms like Medium and Genius.Obama will list his administration’s achievements, from health care reform to gay rights to a nuclear deal with Iran to a pending trans-Pacific trade deal.But he will also stress the distance traveled since the throes of the Great Recession and speak to a present he will portray as rich in promise.“It’s about the power of possibility,” said a senior White House official. “It’s looking beyond his time in office,” in an attempt to “elevate the country.”The speech, under construction since the autumn, will also challenge U.S. listeners to address unfinished business, from dealing with racial tensions to gun violence to drug abuse. White House officials admit it is a risky strategy. For a president with a year left in the Oval Office, misjudging the nation’s mood could make him look cripplingly out of touch.The political backdrop is a shrill and hyper-partisan 2016 election campaign that has tapped into fears about terrorism, as well as middle-class malaise spurred by a lost decade of wage growth.Obama is unlikely to dwell on the 2016 election race directly, but in embracing optimism, the White House hopes to draw a sharp contrast with Republicans.“We think that there is a lot of noise coming from one party,” said one aide,  insisting the negativity of the campaign trail does not represent the broader nation.If Obama manages to kindle a sense of optimism, supporters hope it could help define a political epoch, much as Lyndon Johnson did when declaring a “war on poverty” or when John F. Kennedy announced the moonshot. U.S. President Barack Obama is applauded by Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the conclusion of his first State of the Union address on Jan. 27, 2010 at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Mandel Ngan/AFPA hostile CongressObama has long thought of his presidency in such historic terms. But the broad sweep of his speech is also born of necessity. He faces a hostile Republican Congress, united only in its disdain for him and his agenda.Obama can expect some bipartisan support for a call to enact criminal justice reform, but efforts to close the notorious prison at Guantanamo Bay or improve ties with Cuba will require unilateral executive action.He will rely on symbolism and the bully pulpit to press for tighter gun-control laws, which Republicans fiercely oppose.The White House says one seat in the first lady’s guest box will be left vacant for “victims of gun violence who no longer have a voice – because they need the rest of us to speak for them.”Republican criticism is likely to focus on Obama’s handling of foreign policy, in particular the rise of the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.Offering a preview of the Republican response, House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan accused Obama of “doubling down on the same failed foreign policies that have made the world a more dangerous place.”“The president of the United States should be an optimist,” said Danielle Pletka of the conservative American Enterprise Institute. “Don’t slam him for wanting great things for our country.”“Slam him for not talking about how the last seven years have seen an almost unprecedented decline not simply in our nation’s security, but in our ability to combat enemies near and far.” Facebook Comments Related posts:10 key quotes from Obama’s final State of the Union speech President Obama’s speech was a wholesale rejection of Trump’s worldview State of the Union is Obama’s bid to persuade his constituents of progress Obama’s brutal assessment of the rise of Donald Trumplast_img read more

Tourist safety in Vietnams famed bay questioned

first_img Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Comments   Share   “I love this country, but I am worried about safety,” Chai said in a telephone interview Friday from Halong Bay. “The government should be responsible for this.”Each day, up to 10,000 tourists from around the world sail Halong Bay, a UNESCO heritage site three hours east of the capital, Hanoi. For many, it’s the highlight of their trip to this scenic Southeast Asian country. But at least four deadly accidents over the last 10 years and many more alarming safety incidents recounted on travelers’ blogs have led to allegations that tour companies are cutting corners.The hundreds of boats that sail the bay are of varying quality, from luxury wooden junks to much more basic vessels.At the bottom end of the market, two-day tours can be booked for as little $80 in some travel agencies in Hanoi’s tourist-clogged Old Quarter.The Taiwanese tourists had booked their cruise with one of the more expensive and well-regarded companies, Halong Paradise Cruises.The company declined to comment for this article, saying it was too busy looking after the families of the victims.Authorities say they are investigating Wednesday’s incident and will charge the boat’s captain. Sponsored Stories Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Associated PressHANOI, Vietnam (AP) – HANOI, Vietnam (AP) _ By the time Michael Chai spotted the other boat bearing down on his craft, it was too late to shout a warning to the captain, and the vessels collided. Within a few seconds, he and 17 other Taiwanese tourists were plunged into Vietnam’s Halong Bay, without life jackets, fighting to survive.Five people in the party of tourists drowned in Wednesday’s accident, trapped under the hull of their capsized boat, raising fresh questions over safety standards in one of Vietnam’s most visited attractions. Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Top Stories center_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Last year, 12 people from nine nations died when their boat sank in Halong Bay early in the morning as those on board slept. The captain of the boat was sentenced to 10 years in jail, the chief engineer to eight. An investigation into the accident found that crew had forgotten to close a valve that allowed the vessel to take on water after a pipe in the engine’s cooling system broke.In Wednesday’s accident, Chai said the holidaymakers were returning to their cruise boat on a smaller, “shuttle” vessel after touring a cave in the bay. The tour guide was joking with them and there was no sign of danger when the shuttle craft was struck by a larger tourist boat operated by another company.“I was the first person to see the boat coming, but it was too late, it was right next to me already,” Chai said. “The boat sank in less than five seconds.”Chai said that people were trying to save themselves in the water, but that one of the strongest swimmers in the group _ a former Taiwanese navy officer _ had been knocked unconscious in the accident and couldn’t help.Chai said there were no life jackets on the shuttle boat.“There should have been better safety procedures. On the big boat and our boat, there were no medical or emergency supplies,” he said. “How can you run a company like this?” Parents, stop beating yourself up Luong Dinh Long, a tour operator in Hanoi’s Old Quarter, said he feared the accident would drive away tourists.Long said that after last year’s deadly accident, the authorities tightened safety measures that included a requirement that new boats be made of metal, not wood.“I’m surprised that this accident happened to a luxury cruise company,” he said. “These accidents have a big impact on the Vietnamese tourist industry.”Last year, some 6 million tourists visited Vietnam, 360,000 of them from Taiwan. Tourism is a vital industry in the developing country, providing foreign currency and jobs to many thousands. In Taiwan, the government issued a notice to tour agents to try and ensure the safety of the boats on the packages they sell. The impact of the accident in Taiwan was felt harder because three Taiwanese tourists also died Wednesday in a boating accident in the Philippines.Canadian tourist Deb Haugh said she was planning to visit Halong Bay from Hanoi, but wouldn’t stay the night.“We will go on a day trip, wear our life jackets and hope for the best,” she said.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

completion casting fresh doubt on the nation’s hosting of winter sports this season “We are focusing on winter sports athletes first We will get that information out as quickly as we can produce it” McLaren told The Associated Press in an interview on Friday The Canadian law professor’s interim report for the World Anti-Doping Agency implicating more than 20 summer and winter sports in Russia was published in July It led to a chaotic legal process for Russian athletes to be blocked or approved for competition at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics McLaren never set a deadline for his final report though many expected progress before the winter sports season starts to peak in November “It’s urgent to get the report out as quickly as possible” McLaren said on the sidelines of a sports ethics conference hosted by FIFA which is also awaiting his evidence of possible doping cover-ups After the powerful first report was published the IOC advised winter sports bodies to “freeze their preparations for major events in Russia” in 2016 and find host cities in other countries That interim order affected figure skating and ski jumping before a scheduled review by the IOC executive board at a Dec 6-8 meeting McLaren’s new timetable on Friday suggests Russian-hosted events in early 2017 are at risk including world championships in bobsled and skeleton plus World Cup events in at least five winter disciplines Though his final report is “at least several months away” McLaren’s could send evidence within weeks to sports governing bodies if it suggests doping by individuals “We haven’t reported any of it to any sporting federation at this stage When it’s done we will” McLaren said earlier Friday WADA appointed McLaren in May to investigate claims made in American media by the laboratory director who oversaw drug testing at the 2014 Sochi Olympics The Russian official alleged a conspiracy by state authorities to cover up athletes’ doping and help Russia top the medals table at its home Winter Games McLaren delivered a damning 103-page document which detailed a plot to swap out Russian athletes’ doping-tainted urine samples from 2011 through 2015 In July McLaren asked for more time to complete his investigation “We will also report on information we had that we didn’t have time to analyze in the last report and see if it either makes the picture bigger clearer or changes it” he said Friday The report already suggested 12 doping cases in Russian soccer that were covered up including one that could directly implicate Vitaly Mutko Russia’s sports minister and top

far-fetched is to bring in the name of the Mahatma If wearing khadi and a Gandhi topispeaking of satyagraha and non-violence without accepting its content and collecting a crowd was all that was required to be compared to the Mahatmathen the world would soon begin to bristle with Mahatmas Comparisons have also been made with state responses in the past to agitation on the streets Meanwhilea large number of leaders of the BJPthe Hindu-communal party of the right including its seniormost leader LK Advani have repeatedly drawn parallels between the current situation and the JP movement and the declaration of Emergency in India (The political heirs of those who murdered the Mahatmahowever opportunistic they may bewould find it difficult to claim legitimacy from Gandhijior a freedom struggle of which they were never a part The comparison with Gandhiji to my knowledge is not generally made by leaders of the RSS/ BJP combine) There are several reasons why these comparisons are not valid Howeverthere is indeed some comparability in certain respectswhich have been by and large ignoredwhich I would like to briefly highlight The Anna agitationa one-point agitationis nowhere like the JP movementleave alone the freedom strugglein the scope of its stated objectives or the nature of its nationwide popular support The politically decisive steps of Indira Gandhiwith all their faultsare again not comparable with the waffling which we are witnessing today If it is a repetition of history then certainlyas the adage goesit is being repeated as a farce The similarity with the JP movementparticularly as it evolved in the later stagesis however in the repeated bypassing of democratic institutions and resort to popular support in the streetsnot electoral victoriesto issue ultimatums to the government asking them to abdicate power The popular support which was initially mobilised by the JP movement on the basis of genuine discontent about corruptionmisgovernance and inflationwasover timehijacked by the then Jan Sangh and the RSS with the one-point agenda of overthrowing Indira Gandhi Scholarly research has shown decisively the hand of the RSS behind the popular support to the JP movement in the later phases It would be foolish not to see the element of spontaneous popular support for Anna across classesincluding the well-heeledwho have been rendered utterly helpless against corruption But reports of RSS mobilisation behind it are ominous The student wing of the Sangh combinethe ABVPhas already called for a nationwide bandh of schools and colleges Advani

and universities can implement structural changes that foster academic freedom (Source: PTI) Related News By:S Giridhar column Once more the issue of Indian universities not figuring in global rankings is cause for hand wringing and heart burn This time a sense of indignation has also crept in as the QS Asia and QS BRICS surveys show that our universities are not figuring adequately even among Asian or BRICS countries The argument goes that these global surveys do not consider the unique context of India they give too much weightage to research to the funding received for research the percentage of foreign students and so on Valid points but the creation of an India-specific ranking system is hardly the kind of measure that will help India improve the quality of its higher education My belief is that India featuring among the top 200 universities in world rankings is not a problem Institutions such as the Indian Institute of Science and the IITs are within striking distance and can be funded and supported to make the grade But neither the status symbol of a presence in international league tables nor an India-specific ranking system will address the real malaise in our higher education which is the very poor undergraduate system for basic disciplines Our 550 universities and their 16000 colleges which ought to be the backbone of a thriving higher education system for the basic disciplines are in dire straits Most of them are defeated by inadequate resources the lack of teaching talent and infrastructure and are without the means to aim for any measure of quality Our schoolteachers emerge from these poor quality colleges and teach our schoolchildren in a system that is based on rote learning devoid of the spirit of enquiry and critical thinking The vicious cycle continues as these children in turn graduate in science arts or commerce neither evolved in his or her discipline nor having acquired a social orientation or values So even if we create our own “contextually valid” ranking system with faultless methodology and perfect execution it is not going to address the core systemic problem While the top 25 universities will be in a rat race as they chase the rankings there would be unhealthy jostling for precious talent and the exercise would suck up resources and public attention It will do nothing for the lakhs of desperate students who pass through our colleges We have evidence that this university assessment abhiyan could be an exercise in futility First an examination of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) will show that its assessment and ratings are not taken seriously or acted upon The inadequacy of its assessment is also reflected in the manner it liberally gives out “A plus” and “A” ratings Perhaps the first step is to take a hard look at the NAAC shake it up make it use serious yardsticks where the highest rating is reserved for truly global quality institutions and the rest are placed in relation to that standard That would address one half of the issue that of reliable and meaningful assessment What of the other and more significant half the use of these assessments for continuous improvement That brings me to the second piece of evidence — the various school assessment exercises across the country that have not improved levels of learning ASER the dip-stick survey of the country for a decade now tells us every year that half the children are not learning Similarly statewide detailed quality assessment exercises show that the majority of schools are not doing their job Other studies show that neither in private nor in public schools are children learning to develop their potential But none of these assessments has helped improve school education because the answer lies not in these assessments but in a major systemic overhaul most importantly a deep and intensive revamp of our teacher education system If these assessments have not moved the needle even a little in school quality what makes us believe they will have different results for college education The answer to improving the quality of our higher education is actually a long-term difficult process to totally reform our university programmes organisation and regulation We need governance reforms that question the purpose and functioning of the existing governing and statutory bodies We need regulatory reforms to address deep-rooted rent seeking and to deal harshly with corruption and unethical commercialisation organisational reforms that enable decentralisation splitting up universities and explicitly preventing political appointments We need reforms so that colleges and universities can implement structural changes that foster academic freedom in the curriculum pedagogy and assessment and they are able to recruit and appoint faculty without political interference Other things need to be done simultaneously to address the core issue First increasing public spending on higher education because currently we spend a mere 1 per cent of our GDP on it Second significantly invest in basic disciplines Third improve and give teeth to the NAAC make it meaningful by including measures of inclusion and equity as well as quality of learning outcomes Fourth address the great shortage of quality teachers in our universities by creating a system where the best people in a discipline be it humanities or the sciences choose teaching as a career We need a 10- or even 20-year strategy and we should implement it steadfastly without wavering on the way If one accepts this premise of long-haul reform where a number of core systemic issues are painstakingly addressed one will appreciate the limited value of ideas like the creation of a fresh Indian university ranking

his residence that it would be a good idea if England and India were to play two cricket Test series every year one in either country “Brilliant idea” I said “but you will have a problem Because we will beat England all the time “Do I care” asked His Excellency “I am Scottish” That was followed by a mischievous laugh laced with what else but dollops of Scotch This nugget is worth pulling out at a time when policemen in Meerut less than 50 miles from Delhi are so protective of the national interest that they threatened to charge 65 Kashmiri students with sedition for cheering Pakistan after it beat India in the Asia Cup The patriots of Meerut obviously knew better than to let such an offence go unpunished They know that there is something about Meerut’s soil that breeds rebellion Remember 1857 Fortunately they were thwarted by immediate protests from across the country as also by Uttar Pradesh’s good-for-nothing government whose only fig leaf secularism is already twisting in the wind in next-door Muzaffarnagar You can imagine what fate would have visited the UK high commissioner if I had not kept that conversation to myself all these years And what may happen to him now if I revealed his name Ungrateful disloyal unpatriotic unforgivable Scotsman even though knighted by Her Majesty the Queen If he represented today’s India even his diplomatic immunity would not have saved him one way or the other I stress today’s India because we are going through a phase of socio-political evolution where patriotism is back in fashion Which is fine actually a good thing It is the definition of this patriotism rooted as it is in insecurities that we thought we had left behind in the past that is troublesome In the early 1990s explaining the consistent rise of the BJP I had said that post-Babri it was as if India’s majority had acquired a minority complex (Adelphi Paper 293 “India Redefines Its Role” OUP January 1995) Atal Bihari Vajpayee even quoted those lines with attribution in his speech seeking the confidence vote for his 13-day government The same mood again seems on the rise when the BJP is surging ahead and not because of any mandir tension with Pakistan or rash of terror attacks And when in fairness you have to acknowledge that there isn’t even a vaguely communal appeal in its leader Narendra Modi’s campaign message India has had a 13-year period of total peace unprecedented in its independent history There has been a steep decline in terror incidents Even the Maoists seem to be shrinking slowly And yet our level of jingoism is as if we were approaching an imminent war as if India were under siege its borders getting violated with impunity the enemy at the gates None of this is true Yet jingoism hyper-patriotism and illiberal xenophobia of the door hato ai duniya waalo Hindustan hamaara hai type that we knew in the Sixties seem to be back That is why the outrage by the Meerut police and the authorities of the so-called university has not brought the kind of condemnation and punishment it deserved To question the patriotism of fellow Indian citizens is bad enough And you’d better find a serious justification for doing so But disloyalty to Indian cricket Take this I would suggest to its logical conclusion Why merely lock up some students for cheering Pakistan’s victory — although their crime is compounded by the fact that they were applauding in particular usual suspect Shahid Afridi world cricket’s most durable 18-year-old The clowns of Meerut should charge MS Dhoni Virat Kohli and their entire team with sedition for making a laughing stock of Bharat Mata across the world over the past five years from England to Australia to South Africa to New Zealand and now even Bangladesh If cricketing success is the touchstone of our national honour and cheering for our team a constitutional patriotic duty it should equally be the duty of our cricketers to win all the time With the hero worship riches and power that cricket brings there should be patriotic accountability as well No This ugly mood promoted by prime-time patriots is also reflective of the failure of the political classes to give emotional and philosophical leadership to the people to mould the discourse with the times We are a nation with a disturbingly unique strategic thinking and temper We invariably manage to catch ourselves by surprise Every war except 1971 took us unawares while there were clear indications in preceding months or years of what was coming (1962 ’65) But if these wars found us unprepared so did all the periods of peace As a result we have wasted a decade of peace with Pakistan and more damaging to ourselves of relative quiet in the Kashmir Valley Bored now we are in such an angry insecure mood that we find a few Kashmiri students cheering Shahid Afridi a national threat Each one of these young Kashmiris was born after militancy began in 1989 They trust India enough to come to Meerut in search of that one thing all Indians want a university degree even if it is called Swami Vivekanand Subharti University not to be taken back to 1989 As a sports lover I should know cricketing loyalties are serious business But in the new globalising world where nationalism is on the decline and stars heroes and villains are increasingly cross-national this paranoia is an insult to India This was the case in the very distant past when cheering Pakistan was a common and popular stereotype against Indian Muslims In 2014 even the most jingoistic won’t go that far But Kashmiri Muslims of course they must pass this very special Meerut Test our answer to the Tebbit Test Just when one of them Parvez Rasool is knocking at the BCCI’s door for national selection purely on merit He is probably the only
