It is interesting to for nation to find on the wheels of progress but the government is selecting on the parameters which shall bring inertia to boost to the economy in future but the current,the fast and an immediate parameters are either not adhered to or failed to get them on board in-spite of Niti Aayog each day making loud announcements or high promises.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that his government plans to invest one thousand crore rupees to transform 20 universities into world class educational institutions. In his Independence Day address at the Red Fort, Mr Modi said the Centre has taken an important step to grant the universities freedom from restrictions to make them world class universities.
He said that the government will not interfere in their functioning. The Prime Minister said he is confident that the education institutions of the country will certainly come forward and make it a success.Mr Modi added that the government had set up six IITs, seven new IIMs and eight new IIITs over the last three years.
A government minister on Tuesday blasted German companies for failing to add more women to their management boards, suggesting the government could impose quotas unless firms acted to boost the current rate of 6 percent.
Family Minister Katarina Barley, a Social Democrat (SPD), told the RND newspaper chain it was unacceptable that companies had failed to increase the percentage of women in leadership roles after years of promises.
“I give industry one more year to take care of the issue itself. If nothing has happened by then, we’ll have to take legislative action,” Barley told the newspapers in an interview to be published Wednesday.
“In many management boards, nothing has happened. Only 6 percent of directors are women. That can’t continue,” she said.
Barley is due to present a report to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cabinet about the representation of women in leadership positions on Wednesday.
She said she had “no problem with an obligatory quota for women on management boards”, noting that years of pledges had not changed the situation and many companies had a target of zero.
Under German law, women must comprise 30 percent of the supervisory boards of large companies. But there is no law governing the makeup of management boards.
Barley’s Social Democrats are now the junior partner to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservatives in a “grand coalition,” but both parties hope to forge alliances with other small parties and lead the country after a parliamentary election on Sept. 24.
The latest Insa poll showed Merkel’s conservatives with 37 percent support, the SPD with 25 percent, and the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party with 10 percent.
Both the pro-business Free Democrats and the far-left Left party had 9 percent support, while the pro-environment Greens were at 3 percent.

Ukrainian space agency acting chief Yuriy Radchenko talks to journalists during a press conference in Kiev on August 15, 2017. AFP/Genya Savilov
Ukraine’s space agency said Tuesday that an engine type reportedly used in North Korean missiles was made at a Ukrainian factory, but solely for use in space rockets supplied to Russia.
The development came after an expert report published Monday said Pyongyang’s recent rapid progress in developing a long-range missile appeared to have come after it refurbished rocket engines procured from a plant in the former Soviet Union.
These could have been bought from corrupt workers at arsenals in Russia or Ukraine and smuggled to North Korea by criminal networks at some point between the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and Ukraine’s current crisis, the International Institute for Strategic Studies said.
“Such engines were made up to 2001 by Ukraine’s Yuzhmash (plant),” Ukraine’s acting space agency chief Yuriy Radchenko told journalists. He said the RD-250 engines were used in Cyclone-2 and Cyclone-3 space rockets supplied to Russia.
Both the engines and the space carrier rockets “were made at Yuzhmash in the interests of Russia,” Radchenko said. In total, 233 such rockets were produced, used in space launches.
The space agency chief said that according to Ukrainian information, “Russia today has between 7 and 20” of the Cyclone rockets and could do whatever it wanted with the engines and blueprints.
“They have these engines, they have the documentation. They can supply these engines from the finished rockets to whoever they want.”
– Questions over rocket fuel –
The IISS report suggests Kim Jong-Un’s regime, which successfully tested intercontinental ballistic missiles in July that are believed to have brought the US mainland within reach, has abandoned attempts to modify the Russian-built OKB-456 rocket engine and has now switched to the once Ukrainian-made RD-250.
During the Soviet era, the RD-250 was produced at the Yuzhmash plant in Dnipro, a city that is today in Kiev government-held central Ukraine, around 150 kilometers (80 miles) from an active frontline held by Russian-backed separatists.
Ukraine did not act as a supplier of the engines to any other country, Radchenko said.
“Ukraine did not carry out any supplies of engines during the whole period of its independence (from the USSR), since it started producing the technology.”
Radchenko also said that in his view, it was only possible to use these engines with technology for producing rocket fuel that only Russia and China have at their disposal.
“In order to use these engines and a missile properly, you need to have access to technology to produce rocket fuel. North Korea doesn’t have such technology and basically only two countries have this: Russia and China.”
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said it was not possible for North Korea to have copied such engines without help from Ukrainian specialists and smuggled engines or blueprints.
“In order to make a copy, you need to have either the original engine or detailed blueprints,” he wrote on Facebook.
“And you can’t manage without the Ukrainian specialists capable of and ready to set up production.
“So in one way or another, we are talking about smuggled supplies, evading all the current extremely harsh international bans,” he concluded. media agencies

TAIPEI: Taiwan suffered a massive power blackout on Tuesday evening that hit businesses and residential homes, affecting close to seven million households on the heavily industrialised island amid sweltering heat.
The outage left millions of homes without power and hit offices and factories on the island of nearly 24 million people, but appeared to have a limited impact on businesses, including some of the world’s leading technology manufacturers.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC), the world’s largest contract chipmaker and a major supplier to Apple Inc, said its operations were not affected, as did electronics manufacturer Pegatron Corp.
ChipMOS Technologies Inc said the outage had not had a big impact on its operations. Its shares fell 2 percent in early trade, lagging a flat broader market.
Power had been fully restored across the island by Wednesday, local media said.
Residents complained as temperatures hovered around 32 degrees Celsius (89.6°F), while the blackout caused havoc as restaurants and small businesses were left without power, traffic lights stopped working and elevators stalled.
The power outage was caused by a human technical error at state-owned gas supplier CPC Corp that affected the operations of a state-owned Taiwan Power Co power plant in northwestern Taoyuan, the two companies said at a news conference on Tuesday evening.
Taiwan Power Co’s outage at its Taoyuan plant caused six generators to stop working, resulting in a massive blackout across Taiwan, the company said.
President Tsai Ing-wen apologised on her Facebook page for the blackout, describing electricity supply as a national security issue.
Relevant government departments needed to quickly explain why a single event could cause such large damage across the country’s electricity system, she said.
“We must reform the system. I will make this an important point for thorough inspection reforms in the future.”
Taiwan’s Minister of Economics Affairs Chih-Kung Lee had offered to resign over the incident, which was accepted by Premier Lin Chuan, the government said.
Lee’s formal resignation letter was expected later this week, it said. If Lee steps down as expected, he will do so just over a year after assuming office.
CPC Corp said it accepted responsibility for the outage and was investigating the cause. The blackout was the country’s most severe since the 1999 Jiji earthquake, Taiwan Power Co said. Media agencies

Freedom Day speeches over 70 years had missed one critical POLICY issue – Middleman Free India.
India before 15th August1947 was ruled by British and Middlemen – India got freedom from British Rule but not from Middlemen.
A person taking Bribes of Rs.10 is considered a Criminal but a middleman at Azadpur Mandi making Rs.1 Crore every day without contributing anything to value is not.
Hot news about Gorakhpur Hospital – it was disclosed head of the Hospital wanted 12-13% commission and the dealer was ready to pay 10%. No value is added in routing Oxygen cylinders through middlemen except add cost.
Farmers can deliver Locally Produced Foods – Clean, Fresh & Nutritious at lowest price but India don’t want to change system of supply of Rotten Foods sourced from thousands of kilometers at very high cost and middlemen milking 80% of retail price.
Companies are forced to Engage ‘Middlemen’ to facilitate Bribes to Corrupt – Head of Gorakhpur hospital.
Ø Hospital was paying say 30%-50% more than Ex-Factory cost of Oxygen.
Ø It was also in news – Cheaper Industrial Oxygen was supplied than Medical Oxygen.

~Gurjant Singh (4’) and Mandeep Singh (51’) score in India’s victory ~
Amsterdam (Netherlands), 15 August 2017: A resolute Indian Men’s Hockey team got over the Dutch Challenge with an impressive 2-0 series win. On Tuesday, the team led by Manpreet Singh that featured nine players from the Junior Indian team beat an experienced Netherlands squad 2-1. It was Gurjant Singh (4’) and Mandeep Singh (51’) who scored in India’s triumph.
India started the game with good energy and intensity to put pressure on the home team and the positive intent worked as the team drew first blood with a PC awarded in the 4th minute. While it was Varun Kumar who attempted the dragflick which was padded away by the Dutch keeper, Gurjant was quick to pick up the rebound and work his reverse stick magic to put the ball high up into the net to score his first international goal for the men’s side. India continued the strong attack as they made forays into the striking circle. Armaan Qureshi made a great attempt to take India’s lead to 2-0 with a shot on goal but it went slightly wide.
Though the Dutch tried to make amends as they won a PC in the early minutes of the second quarter, the flick was brilliantly saved by India goalkeeper Akash Chikte. That didn’t deter the Dutch side who attempted a full press and even put India under pressure by winning three more PCs, but they could not make the opportunities count with Chikte staying up to the challenge to make great saves.
With a 1-0 lead, the third quarter saw Netherlands make desperate attempts to come back into the game but India absorbed the pressure well only to execute a stronger defensive structure that kept the Dutch from scoring.
The final 15 minutes saw India increase their intensity in attack with Gurjant’s help win a PC for India. But it was saved. The following minute saw Sumit win a PC for India, and this time they tried a different variation that worked like magic with striker Mandeep Singh deflecting into the goal to double India’s lead to 2-0. Soon after, the Dutch won a PC but debutant goalkeeper Suraj Karkera was up to the task to defend. With final three minutes remaining, Dutch forwards made three strong shots on goal but an alert Karkera kept them from converting. However, Saander de Wijn through a PC scored in the 58th minute but that didn’t stop India from walking away with a 2-1 win.
“I think we played well in all departments to win against the Netherlands. They are a very experienced team with more than eight players with over 100 International Caps. So, to beat them we had to come up with something special. I am very happy with the way the entire team performed as one unit especially the players making their debut. They showed no sign of nervousness and played with a lot of confidence,” expressed an elated skipper Manpreet Singh after the Series win.
On August 16, the Indian Men’s Hockey team will take on Austria at 21.30 hours IST in Amstelveen, Netherlands.
Please find attached action pictures and schedule of the Indian Men’s Team Tour of Europe (Netherlands Vs India).
