Detained Russians were not spying – Russian Ministry

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 30, 2010

(We published some pro-American news and now we are going to publish pro-Russian news. There are some video as well.)

RT

Russia’s Foreign Ministry says the suspected spies arrested in the US include Russian citizens, though they did nothing to hurt American interests.

Moscow is counting on the US to show “proper understanding,” taking into account the “positive character” of Russian-US relations, the official ministry statement issued Tuesday evening said.

Meanwhile, Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin expressed hopes the ties between Moscow and Washington won’t be harmed by the incident.

“Your police have let themselves go. They are putting people in prison,” the Russian Premier said at a meeting with former US President Bill Clinton in Moscow. “We hope that positive things achieved in recent years will be preserved. We also hope that people who value good relations understand that.” Read the rest of this entry »

Anna Chapman, Russian Spy Suspect, Branded Bombshell

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 30, 2010

Huffington Post

TOM HAYS and CRISTIAN SALAZAR

NEW YORK — Anna Chapman has been called the femme fatale of a spy case with Cold War-style intrigue – a striking redhead and self-styled entrepreneur who dabbled in real estate and mused on her Facebook page, “if you can dream, you can become it.”

Chapman’s American dream, U.S. authorities say, was a ruse.

The 28-year-old Chapman, they say, was a savvy Russian secret agent who worked with a network of other operatives before an FBI undercover agent lured her into an elaborate trap at a coffee shop in lower Manhattan.

Though the U.S. has branded the operatives as living covertly, at least in Chapman’s case, she had taken care to brand herself publicly as a striver of the digital age, passionately embracing online social networking by posting information and images of herself for the world to see.

राजीनामा खल्तीमा बोकेको धेरैपछि बल्ल आज प्रमको राजीनामा

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 30, 2010

काठमाडौ, अषाढ १६ – राजीनामा खल्तीमा बोकेको भनेको धेरैपछि बल्ल आज प्रमको राजीनामा आएको छ । सम्बोधनलगत्तै प्रधान मन्त्री राजिनामापत्र बुझाउन राष्ट्रपति निवास शीतल निवास गएर राष्ट्रपतिसँग साँझ ७ बजे राजिनामापत्र बुझाए।  संविधानसभाको म्याद थप्नुअघि जेठ १४ मा मुख्य तीन दलबीच गतिरोध अन्त्यका लागि प्रधान मन्त्रीले राजिनामा दिने सहमति भएको थियो ।

प्रधान मन्त्रीको राजिनामा चर्चासँगै आज बिहानैदेखि प्रधान मन्त्री तथा मन्त्रीहरुले नियुक्त गरेका स्वकीय सचिव तथा अन्य निजी सचिव सिंहदबार गएका थिएनन्। माधवकुमार नेपाल २०६६ जेठ ९ गते प्रधान मन्त्री बनेका थिए। उनी नेपालको प्रधान मन्त्री पदमा ४ सय ३ दिन आसिन रहे।

सत्ता साझेदार कङ्ग्रेस-एमाले र मा‌ओवादीबीच संविधानसभाको म्याद थप्नुअघि १४ जेठ मध्यरातमा भएको तीन बुँदे सहमतिपछि प्रधान मन्त्री नेपालमाथि राजिनामाको दबाब बढेको थियो। आफ्नै पार्टी एमालेभित्रबाट समेत उनको राजिनामाका स्वर सुनिएका थिए।

संबिधानमा चुनाबमा पराजित भएकाहरु पनि मन्त्री तथा प्रधानमन्त्री हुन पाउने ब्यबस्था भए तापनि बर्तमान मन्त्री मण्डलमा प्रधानमन्त्री मात्र नभएर अधिकांश मन्त्रीहरु चुनाबमा पराजित भएकाहरु भएको त्यसमाथि सरकारको नेत्रित्व गर्ने घटक नेकपा एमालेको तर्फबाट चुनाबबाट आउने एकजना गृह राज्यमन्त्री मात्र भएकोमा उन्ले पनि राजीनामा दिएकाले एमालेको तर्फबाट मन्त्री मण्डलमा हुनेहरु कोही पनि चुनावबाट आएका थिएनन । यसरी सफलता असफलताको पाटोलाई बिर्सदा पनि लोकतन्त्रको पक्षधरहरुले नै लोकतन्त्रको धज्जी उडाएको आरोप लाग्दै आएको थियो यो सरकारमाथि ।  आगामी सरकार जस्को नेत्रित्वमा बने तापनि भ्रस्टको रुपमा चिनिएका र चुनाबमा पराजितहरु सरकारमा नपरुन भन्ने जन चाहनालाई ध्यान दिनु पर्दछ । Read the rest of this entry »

MIDDLE EAST: New HIV report turns up some surprises

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 30, 2010

IRIN

DUBAI, 30 June 2010 (IRIN) – Statistics on the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the Middle East are hard to come by but a new study launched on 28 June in the United Arab Emirates has attempted to gather all existing data into one place and add some analysis and action points for policymakers.

“In all previous reports we thought there was no HIV data from this region. But there turned out to be lots of data here,” said Laith Abu Raddad, director of the Biostatistics and Biomathematic Research Core at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar and the principal author of the study (not yet available online).

“This report is basically more like a scientific epidemiological study: Getting pieces of data, thousands of data that we managed to collect from every country in the region, putting them together and analysing them to see what they tell us in terms of HIV epidemiology,” he said.

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 30, 2010

Nepalnews

NRNA has now stepped into Knowledge investment areas in an effort to help transform Nepal to a knowledge based country. NRNA has recognised that Nepal’s prosperity hinges in investment in education, science, technology, and human resources development as much as it does in trade and investment.

BY DR. RAJU ADHIKARI

NRNA (Non-resident Nepali Association) has come a long way since its inception six years ago. It is now recognised for its significant role, commitment and contributions that it has made to Nepal in these short span of six years. Dual citizenship, increased level of remittance back home and uniting the Nepalese communities globally have been the primary tasks that NRNA has been, successful though in a modest way. NRN movement as such, is now ready to embark on new projects that seek to help address Nepal’s long term prosperity. After many discussions and exchanges of ideas, NRNA has now stepped into Knowledge investment areas in an effort to help transform Nepal to a knowledge based country. NRNA has recognised that Nepal’s prosperity hinges in investment in education, science, technology, and human resources development as much as it does in trade and investment.

Europe’s science-free plan for gene-modified crops

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 30, 2010

NewScientist

by Andy Coghlan

A plan is afoot to bring genetically modified crops – mostly resisted for a decade – into Europe’s fields.

Currently, European Union countries opposed to GM crops use a voting system that can delay a variety from being grown anywhere in Europe even after it’s been cleared of posing any risks to human health or the environment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which vets all applications for Europe-wide approval of crops for growth and human consumption.

The result of years of deadlock is that Europe’s farmers are allowed to grow only two GM crops at present – a type of maize called MON863 and a potato called Amflora – compared with the dozens of varieties grown elsewhere in the world.

On 13 July, the 27 member states of the EU will vote on a plan to overhaul the current regulations, but there are concerns that the proposed solution will compromise Europe’s current obligation to judge GM crops solely on science. As part of the solution, individual countries will be allowed to give socio-economic or cultural reasons for banning cultivation of GM crops. Read the rest of this entry »

Obama Declares War on Space Junk

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 30, 2010

NewScientist

by David Shiga

Keeping space debris in check has become a national mission for the US.

The White House yesterday announced plans to share more information with other countries in a bid to prevent satellite collisions. The US will also fund research into cleaning up the space junk that’s already there.

Each new US president issues a list of priorities and positions related to outer space. Many elements, such as support for space exploration, tend to stay constant from one administration to the next.

However, Barack Obama’s National Space Policy includes new language on space debris, calling for the US government’s orbital tracking information and collision predictions to be shared with industry and other countries – a move that some have long sought. Read the rest of this entry »

Would You Trust a Country That Named Its First Nuke Test ‘Happy Buddha’?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 29, 2010

Buddha was born in Nepal and not in India. See UNESCO document: http://worldamity.wordpress.com/2010/03/22/unesco-inscribed-lumbini-as-birthplace-of-buddha/ India is misinforming the whole world through its media and intellectuals. Even India is constructing fake Kapilvastu -the birthplace of Buddha- investing huge amount of money. India is misinforming the world may be just to attract tourists in the name of Buddha’s birth place. No idea how long India wants to continue this kind of activities keeping all the neighboring countries unhappy.

NEPAL: Nepal Maoist’ Chief Prachanda claims he is being sidelined

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 29, 2010

The Telegraph

The so-called ferocious Chairman of the former rebel Party, Nepal Communist Party-Unified Maoists, Pushpa Kamal Dahal aka ‘Prachanda’ has publicly accepted that he is being enclosed from all possible directions by his own party men.

“It is not unnatural for those who have been attacking the sovereignty of our motherland and those who have been soaking blood of the countrymen to encircle you” said Dahal and added, “It is indeed a painful moment when people whom you call your own do not understand you well”, Dahal lamented while addressing a program Monday, June 28, 2010.

Prachanda also claimed that attitude of the Government and parties in government make it clear now that the war for total liberation is not yet over.

“We want to build a new Nepal in peaceful manner. But, we were wrong. We must prepare ourselves for a long drawn struggle”.

Prachanda’s remarks came just a day after reports revealed that vice chairmen Dr. Babu Ram Bhattarai, Mr. Mohan Baidya Kiran and General Secretary Ram Bahadur Thapa ‘Badal’ have joined hands against Prachanda’s self-centered and highly ambitious attitude.

It was also reported that during the recently concluded Politburo meeting Prachanda was heavily criticized for his egoistic behaviors and making frequent off the cuff remarks.
