Analysis: Canada has regained almost all the jobs it lost since the 2008 downturn.

By Sandro Contenta , GlobalPost  Published: July 30, 2010 06:30 ET in The Americas

TORONTO, Canada — For Canadians, the economic news this summer has been good.

In June, an impressive 93,000 jobs were created, according to the government agency, Statistics Canada. The job growth amazed economists — they had predicted no more than 20,000 more jobs for the month. The unemployment rate dropped to 7.9 percent, the first time the rate has been below the 8 percent mark since January 2009. Read the rest of this entry »

दशगजामा देखिएको राष्ट्रवाद

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 30, 2010

ekantipur

काठमाडौ, श्रावण १४ – आफ्नै भूमिमा शरणार्थी जीवन जिउन विवश सीमावर्ती सुस्ताक्षेत्रका नेपालीहरूको पीडालाई समेटेर बनाइएको फिल्म ‘दशगजा’ बिहीबार साँझ राजधानीको गोपीकृष्ण हलमा देखाइएको छ । ‘दशगजा’ ले राष्ट्रियताको पक्षमा आवाज उठाउनेक्रममा छिमेकी देश भारतदेखि आफ्नै भूमि मिचिँदा पनि कूटनीतिक पहल गर्न नसक्ने नेपाल सरकार र उसका ‘लाचार’ नेताहरूको उछितो काढेको छ ।

दयाराम दाहाल निर्देशित ‘दशगजा’ ले सुस्तामा भारतीय पक्षबाट मिचिएको भनिएको १ लाख १२ हजार हेक्टर भूमिको खोजी गर्ने क्रममा भारतीय सुरक्षा बल (एसएसबी) सँग गरेको संघर्षलाई राष्ट्रियताको पक्षमा देखाइएको छ । एसएसबीको रातदिनको अत्याचारमा पिल्सिँदा पनि सरकारले सुरक्षा दिन नसक्दा पीडितले नै आफ्नो भूमिका लागि छिमेकका विरुद्ध लड्न सीमा रक्षक दल खडा गर्छन्, जसको नेतृत्व परशुराम (राजेश हमाल) ले गरेका हुन्छन् ।

निर्माता नवल खड्काले नै लेखेको कथामा दुई फरक राष्ट्रियता देखाउन खोजिएको छ । आफ्नै देशमा शरणार्थी बन्न विवश सीमावर्ती नेपाली र आफ्नो देशबाट खेदिएका भुटानी शरणार्थीको गुमेको भूमि प्राप्तिका लागि गरेको संघर्षलाई फिल्मले उठाउन खोजेको छ । Read the rest of this entry »

एक भारतीसंगको बार्तालाप

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 29, 2010

By मीना वान्तवा “मृदु” इजरायल

आज बिहानको कुरा हो मेरो इम्प्लोयर र म होस्पिटलबाट फर्किंदै थियौ । बाटोमा थकाइ लागेको थियो । एक हरियो यत्र तत्र मनिस बस्ने सुन्दर बगैचामा आइ पुग्यौं । त्यहाँ एक जना इन्डियन केटो ब्रेंचमा र बूढो मानिस चाहिं व्हिल चियरमा देखिए । त्यहाँ इम्प्लोयर र सहयोगी जस्ता लाग्ने दुई जना बसेको रहेछन । मेरो इम्प्लोयर र म संगैको तीन जना अट्ने ब्रेंचमा बस्यौ |
उक्त इण्डियन केटोले सोध्यो, “हाई, आर यु फ्रम फिलिपिन ?” बोलीबाट मैले चिने ऊ इण्डियन हो भन्ने कुरो । शुरुमा मैले श्रीलंकाको हो कि भन्ने अनुमान गरेकी थिएँ |
मैले “नो, आइ एम फ्रम नेपाल” भनेपछि त्यो केटाले झट्टै भन्यो, “ओह ! आई सी !” मलाई अच्चम्म लाग्यो उस्ले भनेको “आई सी” भनेकोमा । सोच्दै थिएँ बिचैमा उसले “आओ मेरे पास बैठो” भन्यो । म मेरो इम्प्लोयरसंग बसिरहेको देख्दा देख्दै पनि पुन: तिन जना आट्ने ब्रेंच पूरै एक्लैले ओगटेर दुई हातको कुहिना ब्रेंच्को माथिबाट दायाँ र बायाँ फिजाएर बिचमा बसेको त्यो केटाले तीन पटक जोर लगायो उस्को नजिक बस्न । उसको आग्रह सुनेर मलाई टाउको दु:खि सकेको थियो । “बेकारमा यहाँ बसिएछ” – मनमनै सोंचें ।  कोही मानिस त्यहाँ बस्दा साँगुरो हुन्छ । त्यसैले ऊ अलिक सर्दिनु पर्ने हो, तर सर्दैन पनि । मलाई उस्को नजिक बस्नु मन छैन, “कस्तो कुरा नबुझ्ने क्रेजी रहेछ” – मनमनै सोचिरहेको थिएँ ।
“तेरेको हिन्दी आता है ?”
“क्युँ ? समाजशक्ति हुँ, हिन्दी बोल्नेको जरुरी है क्या ?” मैले पनि झ्वाट्ट जवाफ दिएँ । Read the rest of this entry »

Interview with Alva Noe, Ph.D.

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 29, 2010

Deepak Chopra Interview with Alva Noe on Sirius XM Radio April 25, 2009

Deepak Chopra:My special guest today is Dr. Alva Noe, professor of philosophy and author. His most recent book is called Out of Our Heads: Why You Are Not Your Brain and Other Lessons from the Biology of Consciousness. Many times on this program we’ve discussed the mystery of consciousness. It’s the one unsolved mystery of our existence. What is consciousness? What are the origins of consciousness? We’ll ask Dr. Noe him what his definition of consciousness is. Until we can connect with him we can discuss the background ideas of consciousness.

In my definition of consciousness, consciousness is the same thing as life. What wisdom traditions also call spirit. And for me anyway, consciousness is three components: a personal component which for lack of a better word we can call the soul. A collective component which is more archetypal and a deeper level, and then a universal domain of consciousness.
Many spiritual traditions refer to that mystery that we call God. And this is one of the unsolved problems in science today. There are two schools of thought about consciousness. One which we can call the reductionist world view which says that consciousness is a byproduct of our brains. So just like your stomach makes hydrochloric acid, your pancreas secretes pancreatic juice, your gallbladder makes bile, so too your brain makes this mystery thing that we call thought. If we have thoughts, feelings, emotions, desires, memories, if you dream, if you believe in God, hell, heaven, hell, salvation, damnation. All this is the byproduct of the molecules of your brain.

Nepal, India to sign trans-boundary treaty

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 29, 2010

Ramesh Prasad Bhushal

KATHMANDU: The country is celebrating the National Tiger Day for the first time tomorrow.
The celebration is aimed at raising awareness on saving the endangered big cats whose wild population is decreasing at an alarming rate.
According to the studies, tiger population has decreased from 100,000 to 3,200 in the last 100 years, sounding the alarm bell that if the population continues to decline in this rate, soon these graceful animals will cease to exist in the wild.
Nepal has also declared the year as the International Tiger Year. Besides Nepal, Bangladesh also is celebrating the National Tiger Day tomorrow. Nepal is one of the 13 countries where wild tigers are found.
According to 2008/ 09 tiger census, Nepal currently boasts of 121 adult breeding tigers.
The government marking the Tiger Day will be signing a resolution on Trans-boundary Biodiversity Conservation with the government of India tomorrow. “This is the first time that we are signing the conservation document on trans-boundary issues with the government of India, which will ease the dealings on trans-boundary issues as Nepal’s national parks are linked with those of India,” said Gopal Prasad Upadhyay, Director General, Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation.
According to DNPWC, Deputy Inspector General of National Tiger Conservation Authority-India SP Yadav will be in Kathmandu to attend the signing ceremony. “Our long-time effort to sign the deal has come to fruition finally. This will consolidate our efforts in biodiversity conservation,” added Upadhyay.
Most of the national parks of Nepal in the Tarai are linked with the conservation areas and national parks in India. “Wildlife reserves are directly linked with those in India and these are important habitats for rhino and tiger,” said Shanta Raj Jnawali, Director, Tarai National Trust for Nature Conservation.

मलाई प्रधानमन्त्री बन्न नदिन चुनावमा एक मिनेट पनि ढिला गरिएन

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 29, 2010

झलनाथ खनाल, अध्यक्ष, नेकपा एमाले
० प्रधानमन्त्री चयन गर्न तपाईं संसद्को बैठकमा बस्दाखेरि टेलिभिजनमा आएको तपाईंको अनुहार हेर्नभएको भए तपाईं एकदम दुःखी देखिनुहुन्थ्यो आँखाबाट आँसु झर्लाजस्तै, रुनै लागेजस्तै देखिएको थियो। कस्तो लागेको थियो तपाईंलाई? – यो हेर्न मान्छेको नजरिया हुनसक्छ। त्यतिखेर यो देशमा राष्ट्रिय सहमति निर्माण गर्नका लागि हामीले अरु दुई घण्टा टाइम लिन पाएनौँ। तपाईंले देख्नु भो ७ गते पनि प्रधानमन्त्रीको चुनाव भयो। चुनाव बिहान ११ बजे हुनुपर्ने, राति सात बजे भयो। तर, मेरो पालामा दुई बजे हुनुपर्ने दुई बजे नै सुरु भयो। दुई बजे नै सुरु गर्दा पनि झ48डै दुई तिहाइ बहुमत आयो।
० तपाईंले जहिले पनि माधवकुमार नेपालले राजीनामा दिएपछि राष्ट्रिय सहमतिको सरकार बन्छ भन्नुभयो। तर, माधव नेपालले राजीनामा दिएपछि राष्ट्रिय सहमतिको सरकार बनेन। अझ अहिले त सरकार नै नभएको गम्भीर अवस्थामा गुजि्ररहेको छ, यसलाई तपाईंले कसरी हेरिरहनुभएको छ?
– मलाई अहिले पनि विश्वास छ कि फेरि पनि राष्ट्रिय सहमतिकै सरकार बन्छ र त्यो सरकार बनाउन मिहिनेत गर्नुपर्छ। नेकपा एमालेले त्यो मिहिनेत गर्दैछ, त्याग गर्दैछ। त्यसैगरी अरु पार्टी पनि राष्ट्रिय सहमतिको सरकार बनाउन लाग्नुपर्छ। राष्ट्रिय सहमतिको सरकार अनिवार्य छ, राष्ट्रिय सहमतिको सरकार नबनाउनुको अर्थ के हुन्छ भने शान्ति र संविधान हुँदैन।
० कहिलेसम्म बन्छ त राष्ट्रिय सहमतिको सरकार?
– अहिले नै हाम्रासामु अवसर छन्। अवसरबाट हामी वञ्चित भएका छैनौँ। त्यो अवसरलाई चिन्न, र उपयोग गर्नसक्नुपर्छ। अब १७ गतेसम्म जुन चुनावको अवधि छ यसबीचमा पनि सहमतिका सम्भावना छन्। यो समय पनि अनमोल छ र मैले सबै राजनीतिक पार्टीका नेताहरूलाई हार्दिक रुपमा आग्रह गरिरहेको छु। हामी खालि कुर्सी र पदको मोहमा नफसौँ। हामी सिंहदरबारमा प्रधानमन्त्री भएँ भनेर झुण्ड्याउने मोहमा नफसौँ। यो त सुन्दा आदर्शवादी कुरा भयो।  Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 29, 2010

BBC

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has defended his comments about Pakistan’s record on tackling terrorism as he continued his trip to India.

He said it was “important to speak frankly” and while Pakistan had “made progress… we need them to do more”.

His comments on Wednesday had led to him being accused of “damaging the prospects of regional peace”.

He is due to meet Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh later on Thursday.

The talks in Delhi, on the final day of his “jobs mission” to the country, are expected to focus on trade and security.

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 29, 2010

In order to ensure its victory in the prime ministerial run-off slated for August 2, Unified CPN (Maoist) has decided to express written commitment to the “common paper” jointly floated by United Democratic Madhesi Front (UDMF).

In a meeting held at the party headquarters in Koteshwor, Maoist office-bearers reached a conclusion that the party should express written commitment to the conditions presented by UDMF.

Talking to a local radio station, Maoist vice-chairman Narayan Kazi Shrestha said that his party will hand-over a letter stating its written commitment to the conditions presented by the UDMF as demanded by the latter for its support in a meeting to be held later today.

The Maoists have also decided to sit with Madhesi leaders for further consultations on the issue.

In the “common paper” the Madhesi parties have put forth the condition that the major parties like Nepali Congress and Maoists who are seeking their support for government formation should ensure, among others, a single Madheshi province, proportional representation of Madhesi people in the national army and completion of army integration task as early as possible to conclude the peace process.
