JVP, UNP Ask More Salaries for Non Productive Govt Sector (To be Borne by Public) just to Win Votes

The Island: Former JVP MP K. D. Lal Kantha, the President of the party’s trade union arm said that President Rajapaksa in his capacity as the Minister of Finance and Planning had not taken into consideration the JVP’s demand for Rs. 10,000 salary increase. As the budget for the next fiscal year had failed to address the public sector demand for reasonable salary increase, trade unions would intensify their campaign seeking relief, the former MP said.

The UNP too demanded Rs. 10,000 salary increase for public sector workers.

The JVP pushed for a Rs. 10,000 salary increase, in addition to its call for all allowances currently given to public sector workers to be added to the basic salary. The JVP also demanded a reasonable salary increase for private sector workers.

Boat owners, fishermen meet Swamy - The Hindu: The boats were impounded after they allegedly transgressed into the Sri Lankan waters for fishing.

The delegation was accompanied by senior Tamil Nadu BJP leader H. Raja.

A memorandum they handed over to Dr. Swamy said that they were concerned about the long-time anchorage of the boats in Mannar, Kangesanthurai and Triconmalle points. The boats could get heavily damaged at these anchorage points given that the Northeast monsoon has set in.

‘Extremism may derail Lanka progress’ | Arab News — Saudi Arabia News, Middle East News, Opinion, Economy and more.: “This is an unfortunate trend that needs to be addressed with great seriousness,” said Hakeem, who is also the leader of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress. He added that the tendency to engage in hate speech was continuously being tolerated without sufficient action being taken by the government to contain the situation.”
“The deliberate intimidation of minorities is certainly not promoting reconciliation following 30 years of prolonged war,” he said, stressing that extremist groups would only perpetuate polarization within society.
He warned that Sri Lanka’s progress following years of warring could be hindered if political leaders did not take serious measures to reign in the extremists.

World Cup replaced by 49 India-Sri Lanka ODIs

Blogs: James Marsh: World Cup replaced by 49 India-Sri Lanka ODIs | Cricket Blogs | ESPN Cricinfo: In a widely predicted move, the ICC on Tuesday confirmed that next year's World Cup will now comprise 49 ODIs between India and Sri Lanka. Following the farcical cancellation of the current West Indies tour, ICC chairman N Srinivasan said it was "too great a risk" to go ahead with the tournament in its present form because "despite my best efforts, cricket is nowadays clearly sadly run by people who love money more than the game itself". The 49 clashes, which for logistical reasons will all take place in Chennai, will replace the scheduled plan for a full tournament in Australia and New Zealand between 14 nations.

Canada, much like the UK and other European countries, has allowed a steady stream of extremist individuals, money and ideology to enter the country.”

While they are still in the minority, Canada is home to a number of extremists who preach radical views.

They have been creating a political space where promoting violence both at home and overseas is becoming acceptable.

Previously, extremist voices such as the Egyptian Canadian Ahmed Said Khadr, who was suspected of links with al-Qaeda, counselled that violent jihad overseas was required, but that violence in Canada was to be avoided.

Sanga may miss India tour :Mirror Sports

Sanga may miss India tour :Mirror Sports: umar Sangakkara has sustained a niggle in his spine while training and it might rule him out of the hastily-arranged five-match ODI Series against India if he fails to recover in time for the tour which starts in ten days, Sri Lanka chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya revealed yesterday.

Jayasuriya admitted it would be great blow to lose the experienced star batsman for a difficult tour, but said they hope to bring in young wicket keeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella if Sangakkara is not available for selection.

“We indeed have a few injury worries, but it would also give us an opportunity to test the young players before the World Cup” Jayasuriya explained.

Germans Clear Russia in MH-17 Case | Consortiumnews

Germans Clear Russia in MH-17 Case | Consortiumnews: The West’s case blaming Russia for the shoot-down of�a Malaysia Airlines plane�over Ukraine last July appears to be crumbling as the German foreign intelligence agency has concluded that the anti-aircraft missile battery involved came from a Ukrainian military base, according to a report by the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel.

The Obama administration and other Western governments have pointed the finger of blame at Russia for supposedly supplying a sophisticated BUK missile system to ethnic Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine who then allegedly used the weapon on July 17 to shoot down what they thought was a Ukrainian military plane but turned out to be Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, killing all 298 people onboard.

Earth’s magnetic field can flip in just 100 years, scientists warn | Metro News

Earth’s magnetic field can flip in just 100 years, scientists warn | Metro News: Scientists predict that the Earth’s magnetic field can flip far faster than previously thought�– unleashing a force which Mayan apocalypse believers thought might destroy our planet in 2012.

Berkeley scientists say that the Earth’s magnetic field�can�weaken and dip within�just�100 years, before flipping so that compasses point south – an event they admit could wreck the entire world’s power grid and expose the world to deadly cosmic rays.

Earth’s magnetic field is weakening 10 times faster than normal at present, leading geophysicists to predict a flip within a few thousand years – but Discovery news says that could understimate the speed of the change.
