Quite often, The Indian Express Group is the topic of discussion at most active Press Club lounges across India. It is also discussed at five star hotel coffee shops, airport lounges, inside low cost carriers and even in the business class. It captures the imagination of anyone and everyone associated with the media, thanks to the legacy that the brand name carries. Unfortunately for the group, in recent times, the buzz has not been entirely for the right reasons. Questions have been raised on the ...

micro presentation:: Best of Luck: 5. PSU disinvestment.
IN the last decade, many steps have been taken to disinvest public sector enterprises in India, both in terms of listing central public sector enterprises companies on the stock market and selling controlling interest. After a lull, disinvestment is now back on the UPA governmentÂ’s agenda. There appears to be a political consensus on disinvestment in non- navratna profit making enterprises, and in chronic loss making PSUs. Hence, it is important to revisit the issues of rationale and mechanisms of disinvestment. In this paper we argue that the main rationale for disinvestment is the ... market research, surveys and trends
Black Opposition to Disinvestment
While sharing with the banned African National Congress a firm opposition to apartheid, Chief Buthelezi and Inkatha, the movement he heads, reject the ANC's strategies of economic disinvestment and political violence as well as its ideological commitment to socialism.  The two organisations are also divided by tribal differences. There have always been South African voices crying against apartheid.  And since the Act of Union in 1910, when the British Government supported the Transvaal Republic, the Republic of the Orange Free State, the Colony of Natal and the Cape Colony in establishing a whites-only Parliament, ... market research, surveys and trends

India Has Potential to Become Economic Power, Says US Ambassador
"India's large and talented labor pool makes it possible for it to become yet another ‘Asian miracle,'" said U.S. Ambassador to India Robert Blackwill. But in a speech to the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry in New Delhi October 29, the ambassador said India needs to better open itself to the globalized economy, and to undertake more economic reforms. The areas of trade and investment were the "missing piece" in what was otherwise an era of growing U.S.-Indian bilateral collaboration, Blackwill said. "[T]here are no fundamental differences in vital national interests ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Consequences of Disinvestment?
We do not yet know for sure why the Interstate 35W bridge in Minneapolis collapsed last week. We do know that it was one of more than 70,000 bridges nation-wide that are rated by the U.S. Department of Transportation as being “structurally deficient.” We also know that as recently as last winter the Minnesota Department of Transportation explored a plan to bolt steel plates to the bridge to prevent fatigued areas from developing further cracks. Most importantly, this disaster has refocused media and public attention on the condition of the nation’s infrastructure—a debate that was already intensifying ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Ever since the bruising debate over Measures 66 and 67 that raised taxes on employers and high incomes, the question has hovered over this state: Is Oregon unfriendly to business?

The prison system is too big to fail, and too big to succeed
Tomorrow is my last day after nine years as chief inspector of prisons. Over that time, there has been considerable progress – particularly in the quality of healthcare, education and resettlement work in prisons – usually provided and funded by expert external agencies. In 2003, 78% of prison education was assessed as inadequate by the education inspectorate. Last year it was 6%. Mental health in-reach work provides specialist support for some of the most seriously ill prisoners. The suicide rate over the last three years is almost half of what it was in 2003. Resettlement work, which used to be peripheral, is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Gray, ANC representatives debate on divestment issue - The Tech
Lindiwe Mabuza, chief representative of the African National Congress to the United States, challenged the position of the MIT administration on the issue of divestment at Wednesday's Undergraduate Association colloquium. Her comments were aimed specifically at President Paul E. Gray '54, who articulated the MIT anti-divestment position. "The question of apartheid is not an academic question," Mabuza told a standing room only crowd of over 400 in 10-250. "There is no choice except for liberation." Her remarks came in response to those of Gray, who argued that divestment would have no effect on ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Google Answers: Risks associated with Gold
Dear vloverso-ga; Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. According to Paul van Eeden, a well-known researcher in the gold market and in the field of mineral exploration, there is some debate among both investors and analysts about the primary causes of gold price fluctuations. In these articles van Eeden address the very question you have asked in great detail.

Instead I will pass along a couple of links to his informative articles for you ...
