What I signed today

13022014
President Barack Obama
 
 
The White House, Washington

Hello everyone,
Earlier today, I signed an Executive Order to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 for federal contract workers.
It’s the right thing to do. But what’s more, companies have found that when their employees earn more, they’re more motivated, they work harder, and they stick around longer. You should expect the same of your federal government.
The bottom line is this: We are a nation that believes in rewarding honest work with honest wages. And America deserves a raise.
The order I signed today will help folks across the country. But it’s not enough.
Right now, there’s a bill in Congress that would raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour for all Americans. It would lift wages for more than 28 million current workers, and would move millions of Americans out of poverty. That means businesses would have customers with more money to spend.
Raising the minimum wage would grow the economy for everyone.
You don’t need to believe me: Believe the 600 economists — including seven Nobel Prize winners — who wrote both houses of Congress last month to remind them that the bill before them will have little or no negative effect on jobs.
When I stood before both chambers of Congress and said that I intended for 2014 to be a year of action, that wasn’t just a nice line in a speech. It was an acknowledgment that we’ve got to restore opportunity for everyone in America — the idea that no matter who you are, or how you started out, you can get ahead here if you’re responsible and willing to work for it. That’s what this “year of action” is all about.
And since that speech, I have taken actions on my own to make it easier for folks to save for retirement, help working Americans get the skills that good jobs demand, and assist millions of Americans who have been looking for work for several months. I’ve announced a major new commitment toward connecting our schools to 21st-century technology.
That action continues today, and in the months to come.
Thank you,
President Barack Obama

Globalization and the new entanglements of geopolitics with geoeconomics

13022014
The Centre for Policy Research is delighted to invite you to a talk by
 PROF. MATTHEW SPARKE
Professor of Geography and International Studies,
Adjunct Professor of Global Health
and
Director, Integrated Social Sciences
University of Washington, Seattle, USA
on
Globalization and the new entanglements of geopolitics with geoeconomics
 Chair: Prof Nimmi Kurian
Date: Monday, 17 February 2014
 Time: 11:00 am -12:30 pm
Venue: Conference Room, Centre for Policy Research, Dharma Marg,
Chanakyapuri, New Delhi –110021
In this talk, Professor Sparke will engage with the idea of how globalization and the shrinking of distance have not led to the end of geography; instead, they have led to uneven development and diverse forms of reterritorialization. Examples of such reterritorialization range in scale and type from the redefinition of geopolitical conflict zones to the promotion of global cities as sites for inward investment, to the creation of local landscapes of stark inequality. One of the broadest scales at which this sort of unevenness and inequality becomes evident is in the world of international relations: the world of struggles over territory and security that is commonly conceptualized today in terms of geopolitics and geoeconomics.
The talk will review these global mechanics of unevenness by distinguishing zones of danger, disconnection, and conflict from areas of market integration, around the case of Novartis vs Union of India. In this case,Novartis challenged the Indian patent office’s rejection of its application for patenting Gleevec, a drug for treating chronic forms of leukemia. The Supreme Court of India upheld decision of the patent’s office.
Brief Bio:

He is also the inaugural Director of the Integrated Social Sciences program, the University’s global online education program.

NEW DELHI OF EVERYDAY: LANES, MONUMENTS AND GARDENS
Heritage walk and talk by Robinson
“In a time in the city when all seem to be short of time, it is important to pause and reflect on the rich legacy which we have inherited – willingly/unwillingly. It is this pausing which enables us to understand, reflect and comprehend the time that has gone by. This walk and talk has been conceived with the idea of looking at the obvious that we take granted for, walk down memory lanes literally, see the same things in a new light with appreciation of the rich tangible and intangible heritage that we have been fortunate to have.The walk will unravel different layers of the rich history of Delhi. Let me invite you to empirically experience and be part of this living history.”
quotes Robinson
Robinson, an alumnus of St.Stephen’s college, Delhi is a theologian, poet, meditation practitioner, heritage walks expert and an art critic. He describes himself as a traveler in life who intends to journey well. He has been documenting the city, the known and the unknown for the last two decades.
