Rajarata students ready to accept pardon, but no apologies for wrong done ..

The Island: ""We started sathyagraha in protest against the suspension of 30 students for opposing the ‘sale’ of degrees at the Management Faculty," he said, claiming that they had not committed anything wrong to apologise.

President Rajapaksa had, at a District Coordinating Meeting in Anuradhapura last week, asked the Vice Chancellor of the University to pardon students and he had not called for an apology, the student activist said.

Asked whether it was legal to take hostage the VC and some lecturers, Kumara said that there was court case pending in respect of that incident and it had nothing to do with the presidential pardon."

Sri Lanka will 'set the pace' for India in milk yield and quality

Sri Lanka will 'set the pace' for India in milk yield and quality: "Speaking with, Johann Wasserman, international project manager, Wellard Rural Exports, claimed that on the back of NLDB's dairy development project Sri Lanka will in time overtake India, recently named the world's largest milk producer, in terms of milk quality and average yield per cow.

“I think that Sri Lanka is far ahead of India,” said Wasserman. “I think they will become the leader in this region.”

“Sri Lanka will set the pace. It actually already has a better system in place. I think Sri Lanka’s quality and average production will be higher than in India."

For West, Rajapaksa is Sri Lanka’s Modi | The Asian Age

For West, Rajapaksa is Sri Lanka’s Modi | The Asian Age: "Secondly, given Mr Modi’s own unfortunate experiences with the global human rights industry, it is expected that India will be more understanding of Sri Lanka’s position on the collateral damage of the civil war. The belief is that India will endorse Sri Lanka’s growing impatience with NGOs and multilateral bodies that use the cover of human rights and reconciliation to carry out a political agenda. Certainly, India will have reason to be concerned about the precedents being set by the UN office in Colombo. Last month, for example, the UN attempted to conduct “voter education” workshops in a country that had universal adult franchise even before India and where voter turnout has always been extremely high. My own interaction with UN staffers leave me in little doubt that the local outfit sees itself as a facilitator for a type of politics that in Lanka’s context is decisively anti-Rajapaksa"

UPDATE 1-Sri Lanka builds up forex reserves with stable currency -finance secretary | Reuters: " Sri Lanka is building up its foreign exchange reserves while keeping its rupee currency stable as the island nation seeing more dollar inflows, Finance Secretary P.B. Jayasundera said on Wednesday.

The central bank has absorbed more than $750 million so far this year due to a rise in inflows from exports, tourism and remittances and has said the local currency would have gained to 125 rupees against the U.S. currency had it not done so.

The rupee ended Wednesday at a one-week closing high of 130.24/26 to the dollar.

"The choice is to let the exchange rate appreciate and enjoy the short-term gain or let the exchange rate remain flexible within a reasonable level," Jayasundera told a Foreign Correspondents' Association forum."

Thirimanne, Chandimal Dropped, Niroshan Dickwella pulled back from Englad for 2nd Test

The Island: "Sri Lanka have dropped Dinesh Chandimal and vice-captain Lahiru Thirimanne for the deciding second and final Test Match against South Africa that gets underway at the SSC today. While former Trinity wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella has been called up from England, where Sri Lanka ‘A’ are on tour, to take Chandimal’s position, Thirimanne will be replaced by Kithruwan Vithanage. The third change from the side that lost the first Test in Galle is injured seamer Shaminda Eranga, whose place will be taken by either Dhammika Prasad or Ajantha Mendis.

The South Africans are eyeing history at SSC and a draw is sufficient for them to win the series. Their last series win in Sri Lanka was 21 years ago under Kepler Wessels.

"I don’t think that record is playing on our minds. What’s more in our minds is playing good cricket over the next five days. We tried to basically forget what happened in the last Test and we managed to play really good cricket there and come up with a victory," South Africa captain Hasim Amla told journalists."

Coconut health benefits: Is the superfood live up to the hype? YES

Coconut health benefits: Is the superfood live up to the hype? | Health | Life & Style | Daily Express: "Extracted from the white flesh, coconut oil contains a high proportion of “medium chain triglycerides” (MCTs) which belong to the saturated fat family. However MCTs such as lauric acid are an exception to the rule that saturated fats may be harmful to heart health.

“They increase good HDL cholesterol and not bad LDL cholesterol,” explains dietitian Priya Tew (

Coconut oil is said to boost the immune system and improve the body’s muscle to fat ratio, but any potential benefits are outweighed by its 117 calories per tablespoon.

“There is no evidence yet to show coconut oil is the superfood it is claimed nor that it is any better than olive oil or rapeseed oil, but it is safe to sometimes use as a replacement for other fats,” says Priya."

Ice cream served in dansalas’ contained DCD Contaminated Milk ::: - ‘DCD in ice cream served in dansalas’: "Minister of Technology and Research, Patali Champika Ranawaka yesterday (July 19) alleged ice cream made from milk contaminated by the agrochemical Dicyandiamide (DCD) had been distributed to unsuspecting members of the public via ‘dansals’ during last month’s Poson season. Minister Ranawaka made the sensational allegation speaking to journalists at the end of the ‘Nutrition Walk’ organized as part of activities for ‘Nutrition Month’.

He noted that last year, the Industrial Technology Institute (ITI) had found that 20 percent of imported milk powder stocks from New Zealand tested positive for DCD. While milk powder importers claimed the ITI did not possess the necessary technology or capability to test for DCD in milk powder, subsequent tests conducted in New Zealand itself proved that the milk powder stocks contained DCD, he pointed out.   "
