23 die in Norway after receiving Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine

OSLO: Twenty-three people died in Norway within days of receiving their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine with 13 of those deaths apparently related to the side effects of the shots, New York Post reported citing the health officials.

US House Impeaches President Donald Trump

By Deepak Arora

WASHINGTON D.C.: The US House of Representatives on Wednesday impeached President Donald Trump for a second time -- just days before he is to leave office. 222 Democrats and 10 Republicans voted in favour of the impeachment motion and 197 Republicans voted against it. At least 217 votes were required to impeach the President. Four Republicans did not vote. Trump is the only President to be impeached twice in the history of the United States.

Farmers, Govt talks 'Fail 120%': Leader

NEW DELHI: The ninth round of discussion between farmers demanding repeal of the three agriculture laws and the centre -- held days after the Supreme Court stayed their enactment "until further orders" -- ended today with no progress towards ending the stalemate.

Rajendar DichpallyIndian Govt Should Revoke Farmers’ Act

By Rajendar Dichpally

NEW YORK: The Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, commonly known as Farmers’ Act, permits intra-state and inter-state trade of farmers’ produce beyond the physical premises of Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) markets and other markets notified under the state APMC Acts. The rationale given for this Act is that it will facilitate better prices to the farmers through increased competition from private sector like superstores - Amazon or anybody by promoting barrier free inter-state & intra-state trade, and online trading, of agricultural goods. This Act eliminates market fee or cess on farmers, traders, electronic trading platforms outside the APMC area....more More

The U.S. Struggle Proves That Democracy Is Priceless

By Daniel Twining

WASHINGTON: Autocrats around the world reveled in the mayhem that broke out in the U.S. Capitol on January 6: an incompetently governed United States, at odds with itself, would surely be at pains to assert its leadership of a free and open international order. On closer inspection, however, authoritarians have little to celebrate. The events in the United States demonstrated that democracies are self-correcting and resilient because they vest power in institutions, not in rulers. Rather than yield to the political violence of a fringe minority, representative institutions upheld the will of a majority of American voters. The failure to subvert constitutional order in the United States, the congressional certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, and the coming transfer of power from Republicans to Democrats in both the White House and the Senate on January 20 demonstrate not that democratic institutions are worthless but that they are priceless—and that they in fact sharpen U.S. strategic competitiveness. The foreign policy implications of the United States’ democratic renewal should make authoritarians abroad less confident than nervous....more More
