I see you standing here asking for help about on

first_imgI see you standing here, asking for help, about once a week. You are always polite, and I respect that. I’d like to do something for you… something that would matter long-term. Giving you a few notes or coins now and then may be fine, but I’d really like to improve your situation more permanently. In other words, I’d like to give you a job. I used to hire people, and I especially liked hiring people who had been denied breaks. I did that whenever I could. If you and I could be transported back in time, I’d hire you. And I’d feel good about it, because I think having a job would do you a lot of good. That fact is, however, that I can’t hire you, and I’d like you to know why. I used to run my own contracting firm. I enjoyed the work and I liked being able to drive past a building and say, “I made that.” Having employees, however, was torture. I liked having them in some ways, of course – I liked the guys and it made me happy to see them take care of their families with paychecks that I signed. That was very gratifying. But it wasn’t enough, and there are three reasons why: #1: Making Payroll My first problem was simply cash flow. I was solely responsible for having enough money in the bank every week, and that could be nerve-wracking, especially when customers weren’t paying their bills on time. It’s not fun to think that a family won’t be able to buy groceries if you can’t collect your invoices. Still, that part didn’t cause me to give up on employees. It was hard, but so long as my employees were working, we were making money, so there was always something coming in at some point. Somehow, I was able to pull it off. #2: Being Hated Over time, some of my employees became jerks. This seemed to grow from envy and from stupid ideas about labor versus management. These guys decided that I was getting rich off of them, and demanded I pay them more – more than they deserved and more than the company could afford. And the really nasty part was this: It was always the guys I had done the most for who hated me most. And as soon as I sat down with them and explained why I couldn’t pay them more, they started stealing from me. I fired the thieves, of course, but these experiences really soured me on employees. I had not only given these guys a job, but I had legitimately felt good about helping to feed their families. In return, they hated me, called me names, and stole from me. By itself, that was almost enough to make me swear off employing people, but not quite. #3: The IRS What really drove me over the edge was dealing with the government and the IRS in particular. They were abominable. I had to file forms with every payroll, and if anything on them was wrong, they penalized me – heavily. And if I paid them a single day late, they penalized me – heavily. And if they said I did something wrong – even if I didn’t – there was no way to change their verdict. Reason and evidence simply didn’t matter. I eventually talked to a tax lawyer who explained the situation to me. He said: Forget about fighting, Paul. There is no ‘innocent until proven guilty’ in tax court. You’re automatically guilty, and you have to try to prove yourself innocent… which is very hard and very expensive. Just pay them. I know you hate that, but you have no other choice. Fighting them would ruin you. It wasn’t just the money that got me about this – it was that they were nasty, arrogant, heartless tyrants. Having the facts on my side didn’t matter. Intelligent arguments didn’t matter. Either I paid what they demanded or they would hurt me worse. In many ways, it wasn’t much different than the local gang of street thugs demanding protection money. So, that’s why I can’t hire you: Having employees locked me into a single role in life, that of a despised slave. When I finally realized that, I walked away. I was lucky that I had the ability to move into specialties and to thrive in difficult niches; other guys probably couldn’t have. So… What I really want you to know is this: I’d like to help you. You deserve a chance at a decent job. I’d like to be the guy who gave it to you, but the system demands that I must live as a slave in order to do so. And I won’t do that. I very much wish that things were different, and I feel sorry every time I drive by that I can’t hire you. But I would never ask anyone to live as a slave, and I won’t live that way myself. I wish you well, and if life in these parts should ever pull back from the present reign of oppression, I hope to run into you. And on that day, I hope to either hire you or do business with you. We would both have much to gain from it. Paul Rosenberg FreemansPerspective.comlast_img read more

More than two decades after South Africa ousted a

first_imgMore than two decades after South Africa ousted a racist apartheid system that trapped the vast majority of South Africans in poverty, more than half the country still lives below the national poverty line and most of the nation’s wealth remains in the hands of a small elite.”The country was very unequal in 1994 [at the end of apartheid] and now 25 years later South Africa is the most unequal country in the world,” says Victor Sulla, a senior economist for the World Bank in charge of southern Africa. “There is no country that we have data about where the inequality is higher than South Africa.”Sulla is the lead author of a new report on poverty and inequality in South Africa.There are various ways to look at economic inequality and South Africa scores terribly on all of them. Income inequality looks at the gap between what the lowest paid workers earn each day versus the salaries of top employees.”The people at the bottom in South Africa, they get wages comparable to the people who live in Bangladesh. It’s very, very poor. Wages of less than $50 a month,” Sulla says. “If you take the top ten percent, they live like in Austria. So it’s very high level even by European standards or even by U.S. standards. And we are talking just about employees, people who are getting paid.” And not the super-rich who are earning income from factories or property or other investments.In addition to a huge problem with income inequality, South Africa also has a significant problem with wealth inequality. Wealth inequality looks at the range of a person’s assets. So a businessman in Johanesburg might own real estate, factories or other investments while a farmer in KwaZulu Natal might not even own the land she’s tilling.This new report from the World Bank finds that the top 1 percent of South Africans own 70.9 percent of the nation’s wealth. The bottom 60 percent of South Africans collectively control only 7 percent of the country’s assets.”How is that possible? Someone must explain this to me!” exclaims 30-year-old Phiwe Budaza, reached on her cellphone in Cape Town. “How is that even possible?”Budaza, who grew up in the township of Khayelitsha, says inequality is part of life in South Africa.”There’s always been a difference between the white and the black but I think it’s getting worse now,” she says. Before her cellphone battery dies Budaza says she doesn’t have a permanent job. She freelances as a photographer and in her words “hustles” to cover her bills.”I work as a bartender and I work for a rental company that rents cameras and film equipment,” she says.”It’s hard for someone like me who doesn’t have a full-time job to survive in Cape Town. The rent for an apartment [in the city] is like three times what I earn in a month.” She says she ends up living outside the city, which makes it harder to get to some jobs.Budaza is not alone in struggling to make ends meet every month in South Africa. The nation’s official unemployment rate is currently at 27 percent compared to roughly 4 percent in the United States.”South Africa is really facing the triple challenge of poverty, unemployment and inequality,” says the former head of the African Union, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, about the report. Dlamini-Zuma is a long-time anti-apartheid activist who now heads up a national planning commission in President Cyril Ramaphosa’s cabinet.”We are a relatively rich country but with a lot of poor people,” she says.If things don’t change dramatically in South Africa, Dlamini-Zuma adds, the country will fail to reach its goal of eliminating extreme poverty (people earning less than $1.90 a day) by the year 2030.South Africa has been focused on trying to bring down poverty and reduce inequality. And it’s had some success. Post-apartheid, the government launched a significant Black Economic Empowerment program to promote the transfer of white-owned business to black investors. South Africa has invested heavily in social programs including free primary education, a plan for universal health care, infrastructure projects to expand access to clean water and minimum income grants to parents.Sulla at the World Bank says South Africa under the post-apartheid ANC government has been a leader on social programs.”Their social protection programs in terms of different grants and support for the poor are working very well,” he says. “This country is one of the best in the world in terms of the efficiency of its social protection system.”Yet despite these efforts the number of South Africans living below the national poverty has actually been increasing since 2011. In 2015, 55.5 percent of South Africans or more than 30 million people were surviving on less than $5 a day.Sulla says the lack of progress against poverty is partly due to what he calls “opportunity inequality.” Some people have more access to opportunity than others. And the people who’ve traditionally had wealth and economic opportunities continue to enjoy those benefits.Dlamini-Zuma says the legacy of the apartheid regime still casts a long shadow over the opportunities available for millions of South Africans.”We should not shy away from acknowledging that apartheid was a system that systematically excluded black people from the economy, from skills, from everything. So overcoming that has to be a big part of what we do.”She says South Africa’s progress will be measured on the progress it makes against the “dehumanizing scourge” of poverty.”Poverty stops us from reaching our full potential individually and collectively,” she says. “It’s not good to be the country with the highest inequality in the world. We need to get ourselves out of that space. But it’s not going to be easy.” Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.last_img read more

Theres new evidence that mild pulses of electrici

first_imgThere’s new evidence that mild pulses of electricity can relieve depression — if they reach the right target in the brain.A study of 25 people with epilepsy found that those who had symptoms of depression felt better almost immediately when doctors electrically stimulated an area of the brain just above the eyes, a team reported Thursday in the journal Current Biology. These people were in the hospital awaiting surgery and had wires inserted into their brains to help doctors locate the source of their seizures.Several of the patients talked about the change they felt when the stimulation of the lateral orbitofrontal cortex began, says Kristin Sellers, an author of the paper and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, San Francisco. One person’s response was: “Wow, I feel a lot better. … What did you guys do?” The stimulation only lasted a few minutes. After it stopped, the effect on mood quickly faded. To be sure that the effect was real, the researchers also pretended to stimulate the lateral OFC in the same patients without actually running current through the tiny wires implanted in their brains. In those sham treatments, there was no discernible change.The results add to the evidence that patients with depression can be helped with an approach known as deep brain stimulation.DBS is an approved treatment for tremors, including those associated with Parkinson’s disease. But results with depression have been less consistent, and DBS isn’t approved for this purpose by the Food and Drug Administration.The latest study represents “another piece in a very complicated puzzle, a very important piece,” says Dr. Helen Mayberg, a pioneer in the use of DBS to treat depression. The study also offers strong evidence that stimulating the OFC can temporarily improve the mood of a person who is feeling depressed, says Mayberg, who directs the Center for Advanced Circuit Therapeutics, which is part of the Mount Sinai Health System in New York. But it’s unclear whether the stimulation can produce long-lasting changes, she says. Also, the study couldn’t answer a critical question because it only looked at people who were reporting transient symptoms of depression. “What happens if you did this in people who actually have failed every kind of treatment for a major depressive episode and are chronically and intractably ill,” Mayberg says.Meanwhile, her own team has been able to help about 80 percent of those patients by stimulating a different area of the brain — one that happens to share many connections with the OFC. The latest study offers “more evidence that [DBS] is something that is real and will work for depression,” says Al Fenoy, an associate professor of neurosurgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.Fenoy is part of a team that has had success treating depression by stimulating yet another brain area that shares connections with the OFC. “We’re all (working) along a very similar pathway,” he says. “One of the common denominators might be this orbitofrontal area.”But it’s also possible that different types of depression will require different targets, Fenoy says.All of the research on brain stimulation reflects a move away from the long-held view that depression is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. “A more sort of modern conception is thinking of depression as a circuit dysfunction, meaning that there’s something about the way cells in the brain are talking to each other that is not quite right,” says Dr. Vikram Rao, an author of the new study and an assistant professor of clinical neurology at UCSF.So researchers have been trying to identify faulty circuits and make them work better using electrical pulses. The challenge has been to find areas that have a really good connection to the malfunctioning circuit”The way that I like to think about it is we’re trying to get onto a highway and there’s a lot of different on-ramps,” Sellers says.The UCSF team took a novel approach to this task by studying patients with epilepsy who were awaiting surgery. That meant they already had wires inserted into their brains to help doctors locate the source of their seizures.In a previous, related study, UCSF researchers had used a different group of epilepsy patients to identify circuits in the brain that indicated whether people were happy or sad. This time, they were able to use these wires to not only monitor various brain circuits involved in mood but also electrically stimulate some of those areas.The researchers were able to use the technique in many different areas in the brain. And Sellers says they got an immediate response when they stimulated the OFC. “What we found was that consistently, stimulation in the lateral OFC was improving mood in symptomatic patients,” Sellers says. What’s more, more powerful stimulation produced a more dramatic improvement in mood, she says. There were no issues with side effects, including mania, which has been seen in some previous experiments with brain stimulation.That’s probably because the OFC offers a really good on-ramp to brain networks involved in depression, Rao says. “It does seem to be a crossroads for connecting many different brain regions that had been implicated in regulating our mood.”And Rao says the results suggest that stimulation of this area is improving the function of a faulty circuit, rather than just making everyone happier.”Only the people who had symptoms [of depression] to start with improved their mood, which suggests that perhaps the effect of what we’re doing is to normalize activity that starts off abnormal,” Rao says.

Footballs Premier League has been branded dishone

first_imgFootball’s Premier League has been branded dishonest by the equality watchdog’s disability commissioner, over its attitude to access and inclusion.Lord [Chris] Holmes told MPs that there had not been “anything like an inclusive culture” in the Premier League and in Premier League clubs, which was “a great shame when it is our only national game”.He said the Premier League “needed a completely different mind-set” and pointed to the “pages and pages” devoted to broadcast arrangements in the Premier League rule book, compared with “just one line” on access.He said that changes required for television broadcasters, when new technology was introduced, were carried out “within weeks” rather than the “decades” it has taken to make access improvements.Lord Holmes, disability commissioner for the Equality and Human Rights Commission and himself a retired Paralympian, was giving evidence to the culture, media and sport select committee as part of its inquiry into access to sports stadiums for disabled people.He contrasted the Premier League’s attitude to that of Premiership rugby union and county cricket, which had both worked closely with the watchdog to improve access and inclusion.Asked by Tory MP Nigel Huddleston what he saw in those sports that was different to football’s Premier League, he said they were “collaborative, open, honest, prepared to share”.He then added, in response to a follow-up question from Huddleston, that it would be “delightful” in the future to be able to use the same words to describe the Premier League.Lord Holmes said that some clubs had done “as good as nothing” for more than 20 years to improve access.And he warned that the commission could take legal action under the Equality Act against individual clubs, and even against the Premier League itself, depending on the progress demonstrated in the next few months.He said: “I don’t think we have an inclusive culture. We don’t even have a culture of compliance from Premier League clubs and the Premier League.”The Premier League’s executive director, Bill Bush, had earlier told the committee that he could not yet name the clubs that were set to break their promise that they would meet guidelines on access laid down 13 years ago in the Accessible Stadia Guide.The Premier League said last year that all of its clubs had promised to meet the guidelines by August 2017, but Lord Holmes told the committee that probably more than a third of the clubs would fail to meet that pledge.Bush said he was not “hiding” the names of the clubs, but that it would not have been fair to name them at this stage because the Premier League had so far only carried out a “dipstick test” of their accessibility, which was not “definitive”.He said the Premier League would publish a club-by-club account of progress in January.Lord Holmes said that this refusal to release the names of individual clubs until January was “not entirely helpful”.He also pointed to a new mobile phone app that has been launched for football fans by the Premier League, even though it was not accessible.He said: “It clearly demonstrates that if that thinking is going on, there is no sense of an inclusive culture and there’s no sense of embracing the positive opportunity that exists here.”Lord Holmes praised smaller clubs like Wrexham and Tranmere Rovers, both in the fifth tier of English and Welsh football, and both of which have improved access despite their grounds being more than 100 years old.Bush claimed that Premier League clubs took the issue of access “very, very seriously” and none of them had ever said they could not afford to carry out access improvements.He claimed that any delays were due to other factors, such as the “disruption” caused by the major building work necessary to put in lifts and viewing platforms.last_img read more

Sweden Lists Itself on Airbnb for Free

first_img Learn how to successfully navigate family business dynamics and build businesses that excel. Airbnb Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business News reporter Sweden Lists Itself on Airbnb for Free –shares Image credit: Airbnb via PC Mag Forget about a tiny, expensive Manhattan studio apartment: Why not reserve an entire rustic forest on Airbnb for your next camping trip? Or maybe your own private island? Perhaps you’d like to pitch a tent on a secluded beach with huge limestone columns jutting out of it?As long as you’re willing to make Sweden your destination, you can find all of that and more on Airbnb starting on Tuesday, and best of all, it’s free. The listings are actually a marketing gimmick devised by Sweden’s tourism agency to highlight the country’s “freedom to roam laws,” which allow anyone to access and camp on public lands for free, according to the country’s Airbnb profile. “Allemansrätten — or the freedom to roam — is a principle protected by Swedish law that gives all people the right to be free in Swedish nature,” the profile explains. “In other words, Swedish nature isn’t just a piece of land with trees and lakes and cliffs — it’s a home with all the necessities and amenities that any great home should have.”You can’t actually book any of the listings — each one simply includes a “Visit Sweden” link that takes you to the tourism agency’s website instead of a booking button. You also aren’t guaranteed to have the spot you select all to yourself, but considering that Sweden is among the least densely-populated countries in Europe, your odds are pretty good.The Swedish public lands listing is a much-needed bright spot for Airbnb. Critics claim the company strains the supply of affordable housing in major cities, and municipal governments worldwide have passed legislation that restricts the types of listings on the site. Those laws have resulted in years of litigation, especially in the U.S.Perhaps to counteract some of the negative attention, Airbnb appears to have agreed to the Swedish campaign as a goodwill gesture: Fast Company reports that neither the tourism agency nor Airbnb is getting paid.

Get Ready for the Achocolypse The World Is Running Out of Chocolate

first_img Reporter Add to Queue –shares Fireside Chat | July 25: Three Surprising Ways to Build Your Brand Chocolate Kate Taylor Dark Chocolate Today in horrifying news: the world is running out of chocolate.Chocolate makers Mars and Barry Callebaut are anticipating chocolate shortages in coming years, reports The Washington Post. The industry already can’t keep up with how much chocolate the world wants to eat – and it’s only going to get worse.Last year, the demand for chocolate was roughly 70,000 metric tons more cocoa than produced – a difference the industry expects to widen. In fact, by 2020, Mars and Barry Callebaut predict that we will want 1 million more metric tons of chocolate than the industry will be able to churn out. By 2030, the figure could swell to 2 million metric tons, the paper reports.Why can’t chocolate makers keep up the cocoa-hungry customers? Crops of cocoa have been suffering due to dry weather in West Africa, where most cocoa is produced, and a fungal disease that has wiped out around a third of global coca production. The problems are similar to the coffee industry, where a fungus threatens to drag down the global production of coffee by as much as 40 percent.Related: What the Devastating Coffee Fungus Means for U.S. Coffee ShopsIncreased demand has also played a role in potential shortages. With chocolate consumption increasing in countries like India and China, demand for cocoa beans in Asia has risen 29 percent over the last five years. Plus, the Washington Post says the rising popularity of dark chocolate means more cocoa is used per serving than ever before in the era of the milk chocolate bar.The long-term future of chocolate looks even more treacherous. The chocolate industry relies primarily on small farms with increasingly elderly farmers and disease-prone aged trees. If the next generation wants to enjoy chocolate, a new generation of farmers is going to have to step up.Already, chocolate makers are raising their prices. Hershey announced a price hike for the first time in three years in July, and the candy company’s competitor Mars followed suit soon after. Related: Hershey Raises Prices for First Time in 3 Years as Cocoa Costs Spike November 17, 2014 Learn from renowned serial entrepreneur David Meltzer how to find your frequency in order to stand out from your competitors and build a brand that is authentic, lasting and impactful. 2 min read Image credit: Pixabay Next Article Get Ready for the ‘Achocolypse’: The World Is Running Out of Chocolate Enroll Now for $5last_img read more

Type 1 diabetes symptoms are not recognized early enough among children in

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)May 14 2019Elwyn was a healthy 13 month-old toddler when she started drinking water from the bathtub. Over time, she became increasingly thirsty and demanded more and more breast milk. For her parents, this seemed like typical behavior related to a growth spurt. One day, however, they noticed that she was abnormally weak and rushed her to the emergency department.She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and had already developed a life-threatening complication of the disease known as diabetic ketoacidosis. She was immediately transferred to the intensive care unit, where she was treated for several days. Now two years old, Elwyn is still recovering, but doing better.Unfortunately, the late diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and its severe complications is not uncommon. According to a new study led by a team at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC), more than 25% of children in Quebec diagnosed with type 1 diabetes already have diabetic ketoacidosis. Their findings, published today in CMAJ Open, indicate this number has been on the rise by two percent per year since 2001. Source:McGill University Health CentreJournal reference:Nakhla,M. et al. (2019). Increasing prevalence of diabetic ketoacidosis at diabetes diagnosis among children in Quebec: a population-based retrospective cohort study. CMAJ Open. doi.org/10.9778/cmajo.20190047 Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood and affects around 4,000 children in Quebec. It occurs when the pancreas stops producing insulin, an important hormone that helps your body control the level of sugar in the blood. Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when the body produces high level of blood acids that become toxic.”Diabetic ketoacidosis is generally an avoidable and preventable complication of type 1 diabetes. If caught early, the child is started on insulin, preventing the development of diabetic ketoacidosis,” adds Dr. Nakhla, who is also an assistant professor of pediatrics at McGill University.Related StoriesRepurposing a heart drug could increase survival rate of children with ependymomaNew therapeutic food boosts key growth-promoting gut microbes in malnourished childrenPuzzling paralysis affecting healthy children warns CDCResearchers looked at the trends of DKA by analyzing data provided by the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ), which focused on the diagnosis of type 1 diabetes in patients between the ages of 1 to 17 years, from 2001 to 2014. They identified a total of 5,741 new cases of diabetes among children and adolescents. Overall, 1,471 children presented with DKA at diabetes diagnosis (with a peak between 5 and 11 years old). Researchers also looked at different factors such as age at diabetes diagnosis, biological sex, socioeconomic and rural status.”We have not yet been able to establish the exact causes of the increased occurrence of DKA in Quebec,” explains first study author, Dr. Marie-Ève Robinson, a pediatric endocrinologist who was a research fellow at the Montreal Children’s Hospital at the time of the study. “It would appear that access to the front-line health care system could be a factor, especially for people living outside of major cities.” The symptoms of type 1 diabetes are not recognized fast enough by the parents, the schools or healthcare providers. A simple blood sugar test is all that is needed to diagnose a child with type 1 diabetes in presence of symptoms such as frequent urination, excessive thirst, weight loss, a lack of energy and constant hunger.”Dr. Meranda Nakhla, study’s lead author, a pediatric endocrinologist at the Montreal Children’s Hospital of the MUHC and a scientist from the Child Health and Human Development Program of the RI-MUHC Our results show that action needs to be taken and underscore the need for awareness campaigns in Quebec, which are now non-existent, about the symptoms of type 1 diabetes among the general public and general practitioners across the province.”Dr. Meranda Nakhlalast_img read more

Praja Vedika demolished call for Chandrababu to vacate official homePraja Vedika demolished

first_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL COMMENT TDP tries hard to keep folks together; Naidu dials leaders politics The former CM terms the move political, vengeful If the Telugu Desam Party was hit by a crisis with four of its six Rajya Sabha MPs defecting to the BJP, its leader N Chandrababu Naidu found the annexe to his official residence Praja Vedika demolished by the new Jagan Mohan Reddy government, on grounds of it being ‘illegal’.All this happened within a week of Naidu’s family trip to Europe. As the former CM of Andhra Pradesh returned to Vijayawada on Tuesday night, he had to face the simmering discontent and looming defections in his party and be a mute witness to the razing of a part of his residence. Praja Vedika or ‘people’s forum’, was the annexe of the official residence — a guest house owned by the industrialist Lingamaneni (who ran Air Costa) and was situated on the banks of the river Krishna in the upcoming capital city of Amaravati. It was used by Naidu to hold meetings in the later part of his tenure, having moved from Hyderabad completely from early 2017. At the maiden ‘collectors’ meet’ held at the Annexe on Monday, the new CM said the structure should be razed as it was built illegally. He declared that all buildings without permissions should not be spared.‘Political, vengeful move’ The TDP leadership was huddled in a meeting with the former CM terming the move “political and vengeful”.On Tuesday, Jagan also announced the constitution of a Committee to examine all constructions taken up by the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA), which was constituted to develop Amaravati.Minister for municipal administration, Botsa Satyanarayana, exerted pressure on Naidu, saying “It is on Naidu to take a decision on vacating his official residence. He is a seasoned politician and knows the best. There was no vengeance in the CM’s decision as the structure was was illegal”, he said. BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao, too, said Naidu should vacate the official residence in the face of the government findings.Corruption chargesIn the background of a bitter election campaign in which Jagan and Naidu traded serious charges of corruption — on personal and government level — Jagan, immediately after assuming charge, reviewed all major projects such as the Capital City, Polavaram, and contracts awarded by the Naidu government, to investigate and take action. This in a way would put sustained focus on the alleged ‘irregularities, scams’ during Naidu’s governance. Pawan Kalyan reactsReacting to the developments, Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan said, “The Jagan Mohan Reddy government should take action on illegal constructions, whether owned by the powerful or commonman, to prove its intent that bringing down the former CM’s residential annexe was not a case of vendetta.” Meanwhile, the popular notion remained that the TDP chief should vacate his residence to move to a new one. national politics Workers carry out demolition of Praja Vedika, a convention hall built by the Telugu Desam Party government in Guntur district, Andhra Pradesh   –  – June 26, 2019 RELATED COMMENTS SHARE Published onlast_img read more
