Recounting a horrific story of corporate violence

first_imgHistorian and award-winning author William Dalrymple is all set to release his most ambitious and remarkable history book to date, ‘The Anarchy: The Relentless Rise of The East India Company’. It is believed that this book carries the weight of his entire body of work, a lifetime of research and nights spent reading on days gone by. It took the Scottish writer six years to complete the magnum opus, which not only recounts the most horrific story of corporate violence, but also gives a chilling augury of our future. The most discerning of readers will sense the hints as they read between the lines. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainDalrymple, a recipient of Wolfson Prize for History, Britain’s most prestigious prize for non-fiction, gave a peak into the corporate origins of British Empire. “I’m tempted to say that ‘The Anarchy’ took only six years; the truth is it has taken a lifetime. It is everything I’ve read, everything I know and everything that a reader ought to know about this extraordinary company that somehow seized an entire subcontinent. This book looks at the sweeping story of the onset of colonialism across the entire region over 200 years. It takes a concentrated look at the years between 1599 to 1803; two hundred years of a Machiavellian-style offensive, aided and enabled by Indian sepoys and paid for very largely by loans given by Indian bankers. The East India Company had a Royal Charter to “wage war” and use violence to secure its trade. But it was only in 1757, with the Battle of Plassey, that the company moved from being a trading organisation to a nascent colonial power, something that accelerated in 1765 after the Battle of Buxar. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardIt can be said that it was one of the first Corporations in the world, because the Joint Stock Company was a crucial and ground-breaking Tudor invention. It soon became what we would refer to today as a “multinational company,” shipping Indian opium to China and Chinese tea to the Americas: it was East India Company tea that was dumped in Boston Harbour, triggering the American War of Independence. In the Middle Ages, people were accustomed to family businesses like the Medicis in Italy or merchants who formed guilds, pooled their resources and traded with a joint capital. But what the East India Company did was introduce the concept of large scale corporations. It pooled in the finances of people who had little say in the executive workings of the company, but just invested what they could in shares. In this way, through a joint stock, the directors were able to raise vast sums in capital. The East India Company was the fifth such corporation, and the Dutch weren’t far behind; with huge investments from everywhere, they slowly became a vast economic power. So when we talk about the company, we are not referring to a dead history or an outdated concept. What it is, is in fact history continuing; it represents the beginning of the modern world as we know it. If we look around, there are these conglomerates and commercial giants who not only lobby to influence governments and policies, but also influence the general populace thereby wielding an enormous power and that’s exactly what the East India Company did. It wasn’t the British government that conquered India, it was a corporation based in one office building, just five windows wide. The story has been muddied by Victorian and Indian nationalists, but if you look at it anew, it is a simple story of corporate violence. The history of the company is not a simple story of conquest; it contains a dark secret that people prefer to overlook. There’s no way a bunch of foreign merchants with no military might, could take over India. It was a collaboration. The degree to which it was facilitated by the Indian financial class, especially the Marwari bankers of Calcutta and Benares is what enabled it to take over. These communities of traders and bankers helped the Mughal dynasty, when it was on its last legs, by organising the finances of its governors. They used the hundi system to facilitate the movement of money and revenue. It was their money that later financed the conquest of British India, through the loans they granted to the East India Company. The Anarchy narrates not only the story of the plunder of India by the British, but also that of the funding that facilitated it. It recounts the story of Indian merchants and bankers, who realised that the Company understood the relevance and importance of contracts and the repayments of loans with interest, and therefore deliberately and calculatedly backed it against the Marathas. The sad truth is that in the end the bankers of India backed a corporate entity, the Company, over their own co-religionists. This of course, continues to be story today, when conglomerates try to dictate policy, influence government and enable one party to win elections.”last_img read more

8 October 2010The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) today called on the Government to launch a “transparent and impartial” investigation into the death of a man detained in a military camp for throwing stones at President Joseph Kabila’s motorcade. The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) today called on the Government to launch a “transparent and impartial” investigation into the death of a man detained in a military camp for throwing stones at President Joseph Kabila’s motorcade.Armand Tungulu Mudiandambu was arrested on 29 September and died in a cell in a military camp in Kinshasa, the capital, during the night of 1-2 October, the mission in the DRC, known as MONUSCO, said a communiqué.“MONUSCO solemnly reminds the Congolese authorities of the obligations incumbent upon them by virtue of national law and their international obligations concerning the deprivation of liberty,” it stressed.“These involve, among other things, the right of everybody to be detained in a place under the control of a judicial authority, the right to immediate contact with family or a lawyer, and right to physical integrity as well as the preservation of dignity, whatever the motive or the gravity of the imputed deeds…“The circumstances of his death must be clarified through a transparent and impartial investigation which MONUSCO categorically calls for.”MONUSCO’s mandate includes supporting efforts to fight impunity and ensure the protection of civilians from violation of international human rights and humanitarian law.Under various names, the mission, with nearly 20,000 uniformed personnel on the ground, has since 1999 overseen the vast country’s emergence from years of civil war and factional chaos, culminating most notably in 2006 with the first democratic elections in over four decades. But fighting has continued in the east, where the bulk of UN forces are deployed, and allegations of human rights abuses by all sides are frequent in various parts of the country. read more

Timing and venue for meeting on Afghanistan future still not set Brahimi

Speaking to reporters following a meeting of representatives from countries of the so-called “Group of 21,” Mr. Brahimi, who is Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, said all members had expressed strong support for the Secretary-General’s proposal to convene a meeting “as soon as possible.”The G-21 is comprised of a broad group of interested nations that have been directly or indirectly affected by the Afghan crisis and could help contribute to its resolution. Asked for details on the preparations, Mr. Brahimi emphasized that discussions were being held with the Afghans “to see where it is more convenient for them to hold this meeting.” He noted that the venue was “not going to be a problem” since several countries had offered to play host, including the United Arab Emirates, Kazakhstan, Germany and Austria. The meeting will bring together members of the Northern Alliance as well as several initiatives on Afghanistan, such as the Rome process, the Cyprus process and the Peshawar Convention, according to Mr. Brahimi. On the timing, the envoy noted that his deputy, Francesc Vendrell, was scheduled to hold talks in Kabul on Saturday. “We are waiting for an answer from the representatives of the Northern Alliance,” Mr. Brahimi added.Concerning the importance of proceeding quickly, he said, “we are very much aware of the necessity of speed – the Secretary-General is more aware than anybody of that – but we will go only as fast as the Afghans are willing to go; unless we have answers and expression of readiness to meet from the Afghans, obviously we cannot meet.”He emphasized that the aim was to meet “as fast as possible, but not faster than possible.” read more

Ohio State womens volleyball set for Big Ten tilt in NCAA Tournament

Members of the OSU women’s volleyball team huddle during a game against Lipscomb on Dec. 5 in Lexington, Ky., during the 1st round of the NCAA Tournament. OSU won, 3-0.Credit: Chris Slack / Lantern photographerThe Big Ten is “the best of the best,” outside hitter Katie Mitchell said.She’s not the only Ohio State women’s volleyball player to have said that this year and the conference has backed it up on the postseason. Five Big Ten teams remain in the NCAA tournament, which is the most from any conference.Of the remaining 16 teams, three Big Ten teams will play in Louisville, Ky., on Friday, including No. 18 Ohio State and No. 2 Wisconsin.Despite the Badgers (30-2) sweeping the Buckeyes (23-11) in each of their two matches this season, the team believes it has a great chance of pulling of the upset, OSU coach Geoff Carlston said.“We’ve been playing the underdog role all year,” Carlston said. “We like it and we enjoy it.  I think we’re a different team than we were a month ago, when we played them. I know we’re a different team.”While having two AVCA All-Northeast Region players in junior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell and sophomore middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe and All-Northeast Honorable Mention senior setter Taylor Sherwin on the roster, the Buckeyes could have their hands full with Wisconsin.The Badgers, who are the Big Ten conference champions, will be led by Big Ten Player of the Year and Setter of the Year sophomore Lauren Carlini and Defensive Player of the Year junior libero Taylor Morey.In the two matches they’ve played in the tournament, the Badgers swept both Western Michigan and Illinois State.  While the Buckeyes swept Lipscomb and defeated No. 13 Kentucky in four sets on the Wildcats’ home court.Badger coach, and the conference’s Coach of the Year, Kelly Sheffield spoke highly of the Buckeyes in his press conference on Monday.“Ohio State just gives so much different challenges,” Sheffield said. “They really keep you off balance with their serving game. They serve short maybe more than any team in the country. They change their lineups constantly going into matches. So it’s really difficult preparing your team for. They’ll move players around from left to middle to right. They made a couple of changes in that Kentucky match that I think caught Kentucky off guard a little bit and that’s just one of the challenges they give.”Carlston spoke highly of the Badgers, as well.“They’re very clean and they don’t make a lot of mistakes,” he said.Against the Bisons and Wildcats, OSU combined for 47 total blocks and held both teams to under a .200 hitting percentage in all but six of the seven sets played.Sandbothe and Sherwin each set career-high’s in blocks, against the Bisons, with 10 and six, respectively. While senior outside hitter Erin Sekinger tied her career-high in blocks with six against the Wildcats.One of the changes the Buckeyes made against the Wildcats was putting Mitchell into the match, midway through the second set. Her nine kills helped the Buckeyes keep the momentum throughout the rest of the match and away from the home team.Despite that change, the team came into the weak wanting to create more problems for its conference rival.“We’ve game planned differently,” Mitchell said. “They always say if you got to do something you’ve never done, do different things in order to prepare. We’ve prepared differently and very focused this week and in the past couple days.The Badgers will be the first Big Ten team OSU has played in the tournament since the 2011-12 season, when they played Illinois in Gainesville, Fla.  OSU has also been successful against Sheffield in the tournament, as they played and defeated Dayton, whom he coached for in the second round of the tournament during the 2010-11 season.The teams are set to play at the KFC Yum! Center, where neither school plays on a regular basis, with Louisville members of the ACC.“I think it kind of gives us a little bit of an advantage as we know how to conquer new places,” junior middle blocker Andrea Kacsits said. “We know how to conquer new team in different environments and I definitely think that gives us a leg up. But in the Big Ten, you’re on the road all the time, you have plenty of practice.”The Buckeyes and Badgers match is scheduled for a 5 p.m. match. The winner of the match will play on Saturday, against the winner of No. 5 Penn State and No. 12 UCLA. Saturday’s match is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. read more

Instagram ranked worst social network for young peoples mental health

first_imgInstagram is the worst social media site in terms of its impact on the mental health of young people, a report has suggested.The #StatusofMind survey found the photo-sharing app negatively impacted on people’s body image, sleep and fear of missing out.However, the survey of 1,479 youngsters aged 14 to 24, found Instagram was positive in terms of self-expression and self-identity.Respondents were asked to score how each of the social media platforms they use impact upon issues such as anxiety, loneliness and community building.The site with the most positive rating was YouTube, followed by Twitter. Facebook and Snapchat came third and fourth respectively.The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) report said: “The platforms that are supposed to help young people connect with each other may actually be fuelling a mental health crisis.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Recommendations included introducing pop-ups on sites such as Twitter and Facebook warning users about heavy usage – which the RSPH said was supported by seven in 10 people surveyed – and social media platforms discreetly signposting help to those potentially suffering from mental health issues.Shirley Cramer CBE, chief executive of the RSPH, said: “Social media has been described as more addictive than cigarettes and alcohol, and is now so entrenched in the lives of young people that it is no longer possible to ignore it when talking about young people’s mental health issues. Dr Becky Inkster, honorary research fellow at the University of Cambridge, said: “Young people sometimes feel more comfortable talking about personal issues online.”As health professionals, we must make every attempt to understand modern youth culture expressions, lexicons, and terms to better connect with their thoughts and feelings.” “It’s interesting to see Instagram and Snapchat ranking as the worst for mental health and wellbeing – both platforms are very image-focused and it appears they may be driving feelings of inadequacy and anxiety in young people.”As the evidence grows that there may be potential harms from heavy use of social media, and as we upgrade the status of mental health within society, it is important that we have checks and balances in place to make social media less of a wild west when it comes to young people’s mental health and wellbeing.”last_img read more

Tytec Recycling announces worlds first Green OTR tyre recycling solution

first_imgTytec Recycling, a new company based in Perth, Western Australia, has announced what it states is “the world’s first environmentally friendly OTR tyre recycling. Edison Award-winning technology from Green Distillation Technologies Corp (GDTC) finally provides mining a way to convert used tyres into renewable energy sources. The innovative process consumes less energy and results in extremely low emissions and a safer work environment for system operators.”Tyre recycling has always been difficult especially for off the road (OTR) tyres used in mining. Tytec Recycling has developed an innovative solution. Using technology from GDTC, Tytec Recycling offers a one-step process to convert OTR tyres into high-quality steel, diesel oil and carbon.“We’ve been working on a way to efficiently recycle OTR tyres for the past nine years,” says Brett Fennell, Chairman of Tytec Recycling. “Tytec Recycling is collaborating with GDTC to establish an environmentally friendly way to turn old earthmoving tyres into a renewable energy source.”“There are plenty of ways to break down tyres but none of them are effective for OTR tires,” says Fennell.Tytec reports that most tyre recycling requires up to six steps, including removing the steel beading from tires, cutting the tyres into small pieces, then shredding or grinding the tyre cuttings. The final step in the recycling preparation is to perform magnetic sorting to remove any remaining steel for crumb rubber sales. Crumb rubber is commonly used in athletic surfaces, playgrounds and equestrian footings.In order to extract oil and carbon from old tyres, an additional process is required using pyrolysis reactors.The current recycling process is time-consuming, energy intensive and expensive. The larger the tyre, the more costly, maintenance intensive and difficult each step becomes.“The Destructive Distillation process used by Tytec Recycling allows a whole OTR tyre to be recycled in a single step,” explains Fennell. “We’re using continuous heating technology that’s incredibly energy efficient and results in extremely low emissions. Our reactors operate at a much lower temperature and pressure, providing the added advantage of being safer for system operators and reducing the wear and tear on the plant.”The result from the distillation process is reclaimed steel, carbon and diesel of saleable quality.Tytec Recycling holds an exclusive global technology license for the Destructive Distillation process for OTR tyres, allowing it to provide, it says, “the most environmentally friendly OTR tyre recycling in the world. All emissions meet or exceed EPA, European Environment Agency (EEA) and the Australian Department of Environment Regulation (DER) standards and approvals.“We’re currently on track to begin OTR recycling in June 2016 and will open our purpose-built recycling center in Perth in January 2017, then Queensland soon after,” Fennell says.Tytec Recycling will attend MINExpo 2016 in Las Vegas this September to showcase the process and explore potential opportunities to expand the company to other locations around the globe.GDTC has developed proprietary destructive distillation technology capable of recycling end-of-life tyres into saleable commodities of carbon, oil and steel. It received a 2015 Edison Award in the Resource Management or Renewable Resources category.last_img read more

We are steadfast in our commitment to eliminate this reprehensible behavior and breach of trust in our ranks.”With reporting from Associated Press.

ilani to host Amy Schumer and Friends

first_imgAmy Schumer, one of the top comedians in America, is coming to ilani’s new Cowlitz Ballroom on Aug. 9. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through Tickemaster and for “Amy Schumer and Friends.”Schumer hosted “Saturday Night Live” last weekend, and her film “I Feel Pretty” is showing in cinemas nationwide. Reviews for that have been mixed, but praise for Schumer’s usual sharp, perceptive performance has been strong; far more universally praised was 2015’s “Trainwreck,” a biting send-up of sweet romantic comedies, which Schumer wrote as well as starred in.She’s also noted for writing, directing, producing and starring in her own Comedy Central sketch series, “Inside Amy Schumer,” which ran from 2013 to 2016 and won two Emmy awards.Schumer will share the stage at ilani’s Cowlitz Ballroom with fellow comedians Bridgett Everett, Rachel Feinstein and Mia Jackson. Tickets are $59 and $99.Schumer fans already know what ilani warns us: The show is adult content, intended for mature audiences only. Additionally, her performance will be phone free. No phones, cameras or recording devices will be permitted in the Cowlitz Ballroom; all phones and smart watches will be locked in Yondr pouches that guests will keep with them — but won’t be unlocked until the end of the show. If you must use your phone during the show, you’ll need to go to a designated Phone Use Area away from the rest of the audience.last_img read more

Winning on the cheap Solís campaign spent a quarter of what Araya

first_imgCampaign spending results reveal that Luis Guillermo Solís and the Citizen Action Party (PAC) won Costa Rica’s 2014 presidential elections despite being outspent by a substantial margin.PAC spent the third most of any party, behind the National Liberation Party (PLN) and the Libertarian Movement Party (ML), according to results obtained by the Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE). The PLN and its candidate, former San José mayor Johnny Araya, spent $10.8 million compared to Solís’ figure of $2.8 millon. ML and its nominee, Otto Guevara, had the worst return on its investment, spending $4 million and coming in fourth in a first-round vote in February.PLN outspent PAC in virtually every category, especially in staff salaries, where it maintained almost a 10-to-one advantage. However, PAC reported spending $64,000 on Internet advertising and web design compared to PLN’s $28,000. Prior to February’s Election Day, Solís said that his strong online and social media organizing would help vault him to victory.Of the top five parties, PAC and FA were the most efficient with their elections spending, getting one vote for every $2.55 and $0.72 spent, respectively. FA’s numbers are misleading, as the TSE did not have their spending reports from January and February. ML had the worst performance on its campaign dollars, spending $10.10 for every vote received. This analysis included votes for president and the Legislative Assembly on Feb. 6, and did not include votes in the runoff election in April.The TSE figures track spending by parties from October 2013 until the end April. Explore the full spending results below. The comparison with the U.S. election only includes spending from Costa Rica’s top five parties. “Office costs and supplies” refers to rent, electricity, computers, vehicles, fuel and other similar expenses.
