Imagine what could be the consequence to the impoverished nation if they start using this resource
Quote:
The United States has discovered nearly $1 trillion in untapped mineral deposits in Afghanistan, far beyond any previously known reserves and enough to fundamentally alter the Afghan economy and perhaps the Afghan war itself, according to senior American government officials.
Quote:
An internal Pentagon memo, for example, states that Afghanistan could become the “Saudi Arabia of lithium,” a key raw material in the manufacture of batteries for laptops and BlackBerrys.
Quote:
At the same time, American officials fear resource-hungry China will try to dominate the development of Afghanistan’s mineral wealth, which could upset the United States, given its heavy investment in the region. After winning the bid for its Aynak copper mine in Logar Province, China clearly wants more, American officials said.

Default 55% of India's population poor: Report

NEW DELHI: India's abysmal track record at ensuring basic levels of nutrition is the greatest contributor to its poverty as measured by the new international Multi-dimensional Poverty Index (MPI). About 645 million people or 55% of India's population is poor as measured by this composite indicator made up of ten markers of education, health and standard of living achievement levels.

Developed by the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) for the United Nations Development Programmes (UNDP) forthcoming 2010 Human Development Report, the MPI attempts to capture more than just income poverty at the household level. It is composed of ten indicators: years of schooling and child enrollment (education); child mortality and nutrition (health); and electricity, flooring, drinking water, sanitation, cooking fuel and assets (standard of living). Each education and health indicator has a 1/6 weight, each standard of living indicator a 1/18 weight.

The new data also shows that even in states generally perceived as prosperous such as Haryana, Gujarat and Karnataka, more than 40% of the population is poor by the new composite measure, while Kerala is the only state in which the poor constitute less than 20%. The MPI measures both the incidence of poverty and its intensity. A person is defined as poor if he or she is deprived on at least 3 of the 10 indicators. By this definition, 55% of India was poor, close to double India's much-criticised official poverty figure of 29%. Almost 20% of Indians are deprived on 6 of the 10 indicators.

Nutritional deprivation is overwhelmingly the largest factor in overall poverty, unsurprising given that half of all children in India are under-nourished according to the National Family Health Survey III (2005-06). Close to 40% of those who are defined as poor are also nutritionally deprived. In fact, the contribution of nutrition to the overall MPI is even greater in urban than rural India.

A comparison of the state of Madhya Pradesh and the sub-Saharan nation of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), which have close to the same population and a similar MPI (0.389 and 0.393 respectively), shows that nutritional deprivation, arguably the most fundamental part of poverty, in MP far exceeds that in the DRC. Nutritional deprivation contributes to almost 20% of MP's MPI and only 5% of the DRC's MPI. MP's drinking water, electricity and child mortality levels are better than that of the DRC.

Multi-dimensional poverty is highest (81.4% poor) among Scheduled Tribes within India's Hindu population, followed by Scheduled Castes (65.8%), Other Backward Class (58.3%) and finally the general population (33.3%).

There is significant variation between the poverty incidence in various states as per the MPI and as per the Indian Planning Commission's official figures. Based on the MPI, Bihar has by far the most poor of any state in the country, with 81.4% of its population defined as poor, which is close to 12% more than the next worst state of Uttar Pradesh.

As per the Planning Commission's figures, 41.4% of Bihar and 32.8% of UP is poor. In a possible indication of inadequate access to health and education facilities which do not show up in income poverty, almost 60% of north-east India and close to 50% of Jammu & Kashmir are poor as per the MPI, while the Planning Commission figures are around 16% and 5% respectively.

The findings would provide further ballast to the argument of some economists that India's official poverty estimation methods are too narrowly focused to capture the real extent of deprivation in the country.

May Allah rest their souls in peace! Extremely sad and painful to digest/cope with a news of an accident like this. May Allah place them in His Jannat and may the Almighty give the relatives, families and friends of the perished the strength to bear this emense pain.

I once lost a friend in plain crash in Fla back in 96 and it was very very painful for many of us and her family.

Just sharing the news - PA Link
happened 2 days ago -

কানাডায় প্রথম মুসলিম মেয়র নির্বাচিত

কানাডায় প্রথমবারের মতো কোনো মুসলিমকে মেয়র হিসেবে নির্বাচিত করা হয়েছে। তাঁর নাম নাহিদ নেনশি। তিনি রক্ষণশীল ডানপন্থীদের শক্ত ঘাঁটি বলে পরিচিত ক্যালগারি শহরের মেয়র নির্বাচিত হয়েছেন। কানাডার প্রথম অশ্বেতাঙ্গ মেয়রও তিনি। গত সোমবার রাতে দুই শ্বেতাঙ্গ প্রতিদ্বন্দ্বীকে পরাজিত করে ক্যালগারি নগরের মেয়র নির্বাচিত হন নেনশি।
নাহিদ নেনশি (৩৮) ইসমাইলি সম্প্রদায়ের। হার্ভার্ড বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়ে পড়াশোনা করেছেন তিনি। সত্তরের দশকে উগান্ডা ও তানজানিয়া থেকে ইসমায়েলি সম্প্রদায়ের মুসলিমরা কানাডায় এসে বসতি গাড়ে।
এই নির্বাচনের লক্ষণীয় দিকটি হচ্ছে, প্রধানমন্ত্রী স্টিফেন হারপারের সমর্থিত এক প্রার্থীকে পরাজিত করেছেন নেনশি। জয়লাভের পর উৎফুল্ল নেনশি তাঁর সমর্থকদের বলেন, ‘ক্যালগারি কাল যা ছিল, তা থেকে আজ একটি ভিন্ন স্থানে পরিণত হয়েছে। আগের চেয়ে এটি ভালো হয়েছে। আর এই ভালোর কারণ আমি নই, আপনারা।’ ভোট দিয়ে জয়ী করার জন্য সমর্থকদের ধন্যবাদ জানান তিনি।
বাণিজ্যের অধ্যাপক নাহিদ নেনশি একজন সুবক্তা। মার্কিন প্রেসিডেন্ট বারাক ওবামার ধাঁচে প্রচারণা চালিয়ে তরুণদের মন জয় করেন তিনি। তিনি যে কর্মকাণ্ডের কথা বলে সবার মনোযোগ কাড়েন, এর নাম দিয়েছেন ‘পার্পল রেভ্যুলেশন’।
প্রধানমন্ত্রীর কার্যালয় থেকে নাহিদ নেনশিকে অভিনন্দন জানানো হয়েছে। কানাডার সাবেক স্বাস্থ্যমন্ত্রী উজ্জ্বল দোসানঝ বলেন, দেশের একটি বড় নগরে সংখ্যালঘু সম্প্রদায় থেকে মেয়র নির্বাচিত হওয়ার বিষয়টি কানাডার জন্য একটি ভালো লক্ষণ। ২০০০ সালে উজ্জ্বল ব্রিটিশ কলাম্বিয়া প্রদেশের প্রথম অশ্বেতাঙ্গ প্রধানমন্ত্রী হয়ে ইতিহাস গড়েন। পিটিআই।

Brisbane down under water

Quote:
Almost 30,000 properties are facing flooding in Brisbane and Ipswich, and regional centres are going under, some for the second time in 10 days, as Queensland's deadly flood crisis escalates.


Flood waters are already affecting 35 Brisbane suburbs, and Ipswich's CBD has been swamped and 3000 homes inundated, with both cities expected to experience flood levels at or beyond what was seen during the catastrophic 1974 floods.

Never seen such devastating mood of nature ! watch incredible flash flood footages

Default Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Sultan dies



Saudi Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz al Saud has died, Saudi TV says.

The crown prince was King Abdullah's half-brother and first in line to the Saudi throne. He was also minister of defence and aviation.

He was in his eighties and was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2004. He is thought to have died at a New York hospital.

Prince Sultan had been on a visit to the US for medical tests, and he had an operation in New York in July.

The royal court confirmed the death in a statement carried by SPA, the state news agency:

"With deep sorrow and sadness the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz mourns the death of his brother and his Crown Prince Sultan... who died at dawn this morning Saturday outside the kingdom following an illness."
