uggs gloves Union Budget 2013

ugg boots classic short Union Budget 2013

Today, more than ever, I seek the same support as we navigate the Indian economy through a crisis that has enveloped the whole world and spared none.

I. Global economic growth slowed from 3.9 percent in 2011 to 3.2 percent in 2012. India is part of the global economy: our exports and imports amount to 43 percent of GDP and two way external sector transactions have risen to 108 percent of GDP. We are not unaffected by what happens in the rest of the world and our economy too has slowed after 2010 11. In the current year, the CSO has estimated growth at 5 percent while the RBI has estimated growth at 5.5 percent. Whatever may be the final estimate, it will be below India’s potential growth rate of 8 percent. Getting back to that growth rate is the challenge that faces the country. Even now, of the large countries of the world, only China and Indonesia are growing faster than India in 2012 13. And in 2013 14, if we grow at the rate projected by many forecasters, only China will grow faster than India. Between 2004 and 2008, and again in 2009 10 and 2010 11, the growth rate was over 8 percent and, in fact, crossed 9 percent in four of those six years. The average for the 11th Plan period, entirely under the UPA Government, was 8 percent, the highest ever in any Plan period. Achieving high growth, therefore, is not a novelty or beyond our capacity. We have done it before and we can do it again. I shall now outline our plans and priorities. That is the mool mantra. It is growth that will lead to inclusive development, without growth there will be neither development nor inclusiveness. However, I may sound a note of caution. Owing to the plurality and diversity of India, and centuries of neglect, discrimination and deprivation, many sections of the people will be left behind if we do not pay special attention to them. As Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel prize winning economist, said, “There is a compelling moral case for equity; but it is also necessary if there is to be sustained growth. A country’s most important resource is its people.” We have examples of States growing at a fast rate, but leaving behind women, the scheduled castes, the scheduled tribes, the minorities, and some backward classes. The UPA does not accept that model. The UPA Government believes in inclusive development, with emphasis on improving human development indicators. I hope this Budget will be yet another testimony to that commitment. At present, the economic space is constrained because of a high fiscal deficit; reliance on foreign inflows to finance the current account deficit; lower savings and lower investment; a tight monetary policy to contain inflation; and strong external headwinds. During the course of my speech, I shall spell out measures that will address each of these issues. Vijay Kelkar Committee. A new fiscal consolidation path was announced. Red lines were drawn for the fiscal deficit at 5.3 percent of GDP this year and 4.8 percent of GDP in 2013 14. I know there is a lot of scepticism. In a little while, I shall tell you how we have fared. The CAD continues to be high mainly because of our excessive dependence on oil imports, the high volume of coal imports, our passion for gold, and the slow down in exports. This year, and perhaps next year too, we have to find over USD 75 billion to finance the CAD. There are only three ways before us: FDI, FII or External Commercial Borrowing (ECB). That is why I have been at pains to state over and over again that India, at the present juncture, does not have the choice between welcoming and spurning foreign investment. If I may be frank, foreign investment is an imperative. What we can do is to encourage foreign investment that is consistent with our economic objectives. The development model must have democratic legitimacy and approval. Some inflation is imported. Supply demand mismatch, for example in oilseeds and pulses, also pushes up inflation. Aggregate demand is another cause of inflation. The battle against inflation must be fought on all fronts. Our efforts in the past few months have brought down headline WPI inflation to about 7.0 percent and core inflation to about 4.2 percent. It is food inflation that is worrying, and we shall take all possible steps to augment the supply side to meet the growing demand for food items. Wisdom lies in finding the correct level of government expenditure. In the budget for 2012 13, the estimate of Plan Expenditure was too ambitious and the estimate of non Plan Expenditure was too conservative. Faced with a huge fiscal deficit, I had no choice but to rationalise expenditure. We took a dose of bitter medicine. It seems to be working. We also took some policy decisions that had been deferred for too long, corrected some prices, and undertook a review of certain tax policies. We have retrieved some economic space. As I outline our plans and priorities, Hon’ble Members will find that I have used that economic space to advantage and to advance the UPA Government’s socio economic objectives.

II. Anticipating a global and domestic recovery, total expenditure had been fixed at 14,90,925 crore. Due to the slowdown and the austerity measures, the revised estimate is 14,30,825 crore or 96 percent of the budget estimate. The economic space that we have gained has given me the confidence to be more ambitious in 2013 14. I have been able to set the BE of total expenditure at 16,65,297 crore and of plan expenditure at 5,55,322 crore. Hon’ble Members will be happy to know that plan expenditure in 2013 14 will be 29.4 percent more than the revised estimate of the current year. All flagship programmes have been fully and adequately funded. I dare say I have provided sufficient funds to each Ministry or Department consistent with their capacity to spend the funds. Now, it is over to the Ministries and Departments to deliver the outcomes through good governance, prudent cash management, close monitoring and timely implementation.

16. on the one side is economic policy. On the other side is economic welfare. We are a developing country. The link between policy and welfare can be expressed in a few words: opportunities, education, skills, jobs and incomes. Every mother understands this. Every young man and woman understands this. My budget for 2013 14 has before it one overarching goal: to create opportunities for our youth to acquire education and skills that will get them decent jobs or self employment that will bring them adequate incomes that will enable them to live with their families in a safe and secure environment. I know their concern for the welfare and progress of the scheduled castes and the scheduled tribes for whom the Budget has sub plans. I also know their concern that adequate funds must be provided for programmes that benefit women, children and the minorities. I have tried to meet these concerns as fully as possible. I propose to allocate 41,561 crore to the scheduled caste sub plan and 24,598 crore to the tribal sub plan. The total represents an increase of 12.5 percent over the BE and 31 percent over the RE of the current year. I reiterate the rule that the funds allocated to the sub plans cannot be diverted and must be spent for the purposes of the sub plans. Young women face gender discrimination everywhere, especially at the work place. Ministry of Women and Child Development has been asked to design schemes that will address these concerns. This is an increase of 12 percent over the BE and 60 percent over the RE of 2012 13. Its corpus stands at 750 crore. With the objective of raising it to 1,500 crore during the 12th Plan period, I propose to allocate 160 crore to the corpus fund. The Foundation wishes to add medical aid to its objectives. I have accepted that a beginning can be made by providing medical facilities such as an infirmary or a resident doctor in the educational institutions run or funded by the Foundation. I propose to allocate a sum of 110 crore to the Department of Disability Affairs for the ADIP Scheme in 2013 14, as against the RE of 75 crore in the current year.

ugg outlet uk sale Uniforms Will Boost Respect

Principal Troy Monroe is working on details with an advisory committee after the school board approved a pilot program at Illing on Monday. Monroe has been researching the subject for months, inspired by the success of uniforms at middle schools in East Hartford and other communities and a survey that showed strong support for uniforms among Manchester parents, faculty and the business community.In the 2011 12 school year, Illing students will wear polo style shirts in green, blue or white. Cold weather options may include polar fleece tops, turtlenecks, long sleeved polos and zippered sweat shirts (no hoodies). All tops will include the school name and Rams logo.Bottoms will be khaki style tan, black or navy blue (no cargo pants). Boys may wear pants or shorts. Girls may wear pants, shorts, skirts, capri pants or combination shorts and skirt called skorts. The hems of the shorter garments must be no more than 3 inches above the knee. Shoes must be closed toe no flip flops, slides or moccasins.In an interview Thursday, Monroe, 44, the school’s principal for five years, cited the benefits of school uniforms all related to student achievement and safety.”It sets a tone in the building,” the veteran educator said. “You are here for learning.”Although the school’s current dress code prohibits inappropriate clothing, some students press the limits with baggy pants, too short skirts, see through tops and other dress not conducive to academics, Monroe said. Dealing with those students, he said, takes time away from instruction.Also, about 46 percent of Illing students receive free or reduced price lunches. So while some parents can buy their children the latest name brand jeans and sneakers, others can’t, and children from poorer households have told him they feel diminished, Monroe said.”This is another way to minimize those distractions,” he said.Efforts will be made to help families who may not be able to afford the required uniforms, he said.The uniform dress code also is designed to promote safety through common identification.”If our kids look a certain way, we know they’re our kids,” Monroe said.Finally, uniforms prepare students for expectations beyond middle school. Local business people have told him they expect appropriate dress and a sense of decorum from potential employees, Monroe said.He acknowledged that most students hate the prospect of uniforms. In a survey of about 400 Illing students, only 15 to 20 favored the idea. Some parents also oppose the program, saying they would have sent their children to private schools if they wanted them to wear uniforms, Monroe said.But the majority of parents, faculty and business people in town all have shown strong support. As the new school year progresses, Monroe said, he will keep data on compliance and how the uniform requirement affects attendance, tardiness and misbehavior.School officials will choose a vendor for the school uniform tops. Pants and other bottom garments do not have to be from an approved vendor; parents may buy those at stores where they can get the best value, Monroe said.

General Motors and Unifor, the union representing about 2,800 striking workers at the CAMI Chevrolet Equinox assembly plant in Ingersoll, Ont., have talked informally over the phone but aren yet back the bargaining table, a union official said. Sept. 17, after the most recent contract expired. Official talks have yet to resume.

We trying to find common ground so we can get back to the table, Unifor Local 88 President Dan Borthwick said. open to having dialogue. As long as we talking, it better than not talking. Hopefully we can get something done in a short period of time. the first strike to affect a Canadian GM assembly plant since 1996. A five week strike by the CAW, the predecessor to Unifor, idled the CAMI plant in 1992 and Borthwick said his members are prepared for a showdown of similar length.

Borthwick said the current strike is a gamble, but one worth taking.

The main sticking point although many smaller ones remain is the fact GM Canada refuses to designate CAMI the lead Equinox plant among the automaker North American facilities.

General Motors of Canada and our Unifor partners have made very positive progress on several issues over the past weeks, the Company is disappointed that we were not able to complete a new agreement. We encourage Unifor to resume negotiations and to continue working together to secure a competitive agreement. The move resulted in the elimination of about 600 jobs at CAMI, although about 200 employees accepted buyouts or early retirement.

But, because the redesigned Equinox is more complex to assemble than the previous generation, production at the CAMI plant dropped to 40 units per hour, down from 60 units per hour, resulting in needing fewer hourly employees.

GM already spent about $800 million retooling the CAMI plant in anticipation of the redesigned Equinox that has been selling strongly in the United States and Canada. Sales are up 17 and 40 percent in those countries, respectively.

Risk taken

While Borthwick said the union was willing to accept the risk a strike presents, he confident the automaker won easily or quickly move Equinox production to Mexico.

Two Mexican plants began assembling the Equinox in April, and GM could ramp up production there during the strike. But by how much is unknown.

The crossover is built on a line alongside the Terrain at the Ramos Arizpe plant, which also builds the Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic on another line. GM San Luis Potosi plant also builds the Equinox, along with the Chevrolet Aveo and Trax and the GMC Terrain.

The two Mexican plants have built 40,017 units through August of this year since production began in April, according to the Automotive News Data Center. CAMI has built 132,288 of the crossovers since the beginning of the year.

ugg toddler Unifor seeks leave to challenge Suncor random drug test ruling at Supreme Court

EDMONTON A union that represents 3,000 workers at Suncor Energy oilsands operations in northeast Alberta wants to take the issue of random workplace drug testing to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Ken Smith, president of Unifor local 707A, said the union is seeking leave to challenge an Alberta Court of Appeal ruling in September that was in favour of the energy giant.

union is seeking an injunction based on the rights of a person to dignity and privacy. and the union have been fighting over random drug testing since 2012 when the company first started testing staff in safety sensitive jobs.

The union has argued that random tests are an infringement of privacy. Unifor has said that Suncor already has a comprehensive testing program for workers who are in accidents or if the company has reasonable cause.

The majority of an arbitration tribunal ruled in favour of Unifor in 2014, but last year an Alberta Court of Queen Bench ruling quashed that decision.

Unifor appealed,

but the Alberta Court of Appeal dismissed the union challenge.

The Appeal Court judges said the arbitration tribunal ruling did not consider enough evidence.

Smith said the union hopes the Supreme Court will restore the arbitration panel 2014 decision.

union remains fully committed to the workplace safety of its members, all workers and the public at the Suncor oilsands mine site, Smith said.

safety of all can only be protected by policies that reflect appropriate and meaningful respect for the privacy and dignity of the workforce. officials were not immediately available for comment on Unifor decision to seek leave to appeal to the Supreme Court or the union request for a court injunction.

In earlier court decisions Suncor presented evidence of more than 2,200 incidents that involved drugs or alcohol, but did not break down how many involved unionized employees versus non union members and contractors.

Suncor (TSX:SU) has also highlighted why safety is such a concern.

Assessing conditions on the Greek island of Lesbos, the main landing spot for tens of thousands of people taking smuggler boats from the nearby Turkish coast, Guterres said European governments had yet to match the “gigantic effort” that the island and its people had made in trying to cope with the huge influx.”It is amazing that on a small island, you are managing, whereas in a big Europe, with half a billion people, they are finding it so difficult,” Guterres told Lesbos Mayor Spyros Galinos and other Greek officials. “We are always saying this crisis is manageable at the European level, but to be manageable, it needs to be much better managed.”Without a Europe wide approach and an effective strategy in dealing with the influx, Guterres warned, criminal networks would continue to thrive. “When states are not able to organize the orderly movement of refugees, smugglers take charge, exploiting people further and adding to their suffering,” he added.Describing his island as frontline, Mayor Galinos said: “the main issue is not the numbers, but the lack of a European policy to respond.” Nevertheless, he said, Greeks would continue to do whatever they could to address the crisis and combat smugglers, “who not only exploit the people, but who put their lives at continuous risk.””Above all, we are all human beings,” the Mayor added. “We must all recognize the position of these people because we might all find ourselves in this situation one day.”UNHCR has deployed an emergency team to Greece and now has some 120 staff in the country to support the government in its effort to address the continuing crisis. The island of Lesbos,

with a population of 95,000 people, has received over 220,000 people in nine months 160,000 in September alone.The majority of the refugees and migrants arriving on Lesbos are from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. The rest, about 5 per cent, are migrants and refugees from about 20 countries as varied as India, Bangladesh, Togo, Niger, Columbia, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.The Greek Coast Guard on Lesbos receives up to five distress calls a day and set out to rescue people in overcrowded boats.Deputy Harbour Master, Antonio Sofiadellis, a leader in the Greek Coast Guard effort that has saved an average of 400 refugee and migrant lives every day, said that more people are being packed onto the flimsy boats these days around 60 when 50 used to be the limit.”The engines are very cheap and the smugglers don’t care that they don’t know how to operate the boats. This is something no country in Europe has faced. If we weren’t there to rescue them, half or more than half would drown. The boats capsize, some fold, when the floor breaks.”Mr. Guterres also visited the north of Lesbos, where most refugee boats land. The beaches were strewn with hundreds of bright orange life jackets and deflated rubber boats, soaked shoes and pieces of clothing. Some 1,050 people had arrived overnight and volunteers helped them to an assembly point nearby, where they found food and a warm place to sleep in a large UNHCR shelter.Some Syrian refugees he met told him they had fled directly from Aleppo,

cheap mens ugg slippers UNHCR Adding Camp Capacity for New Mosul Displacement

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, this week opened Chamakor, its latest camp in the Mosul area, to manage the spike in displacement triggered by the recent Iraqi offensive to recapture the western parts of Iraq?s second city.

Capacity is rapidly filling in camps to the east, while those to the south are full. Over 195,000 are currently sheltering in the 21 camps built by UN agencies and the government around Mosul, and there is currently space available for up to 109,000 new arrivals in existing camps.

UNHCR is building two additional camps near Mosul (Hasansham U2 to the east, and Hammam Al Alil 2 to the south) for another 39,000. It is also erecting 19 tented halls in the government built Hammam al Alil camp to serve as reception centres and transit area, and is examining expanding capacity in camps north of the city. The biggest challenge remains finding suitable land to build new camps.

Chamakor, east of Mosul,
uggs for boys UNHCR Adding Camp Capacity for New Mosul Displacement
received its first 200 residents Monday. More arrivals are expected Tuesday and through the week. It is ready to immediately receive 6,600 people.

Hunger and insecurity have been cited as key factors in the decision to flee by newly displaced families, who told UNHCR of armed groups attacking areas recently retaken by Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), causing sustained civilian casualties.

The newest arrivals are in a desperate condition, visibly traumatized, hungry and dehydrated. Many arrived without shoes and wearing soaking clothes, having walked long distances to reach safety at government checkpoints. Some had left relatives behind, hoping to be reunited once they are able to find safer exit routes from west Mosul. Families recounted surviving on one meal a day flour and water, sometimes supplemented by bread or tomato paste over recent weeks.

Currently there are 211,572 Iraqis displaced by the fighting in Mosul, with over 50,000 added since the beginning of the latest operations in west Mosul, launched on 19 February.

uggs boots uk Unexplained phenomena often linked to traumatic events

ugg boots short chestnut Unexplained phenomena often linked to traumatic events

But reports of hauntings in Northern Illinois intrigued him, and he began researching them. He founded a Fox Lake based group in 2006 called Something Ghostly Paranormal.

Over the years, he’s investigated public buildings, private homes, hospitals, insane asylums and other places in the county and around the nation, and he believes some of these places have been visited by spirits from another world.

There’s the haunted doll in someone’s home the owners say she moves limbs at will, and he’s seen it himself. He recently investigated a tavern in Fox Lake where he, a bartender and other workers heard strange voices after closing hours.

If that doesn’t convince you, how about Dolski’s claim that his house in Huntley is haunted by a little girl named Sally?

“One day, my wife and I were sitting on the couch, and we both heard somebody say, ‘Mommy,’ Nobody was there. We’ve had company come and they’ve seen and heard things, too. We’ve opened our house to a lot of friends who don’t believe it,” Dolski said. “After they spend the night, they believe.”

Sally tends to appear weekly at the Dolski household, sometimes moving items around in the house, he said.

He discovered that years ago, a young girl died in a well on his house’s property.

“We think because it was a tragic death, she doesn’t know that she’s dead. She’s looking for her parents, a place to call her own. Since we recognize that spirits are real, we have accommodated her and allowed her into our family,” Dolski said.

He and his wife would like her to leave.

“But she refuses to move on,” he said.

Bob Jensen, who started Ghostland Paranormal in 1990 in Gurnee, said he’s less of a skeptic than he used to be.

Ghostland Paranormal consists of open minded people, he said, adding that the members are, “well respected members of the community, including teachers,
uggs boots uk Unexplained phenomena often linked to traumatic events
professors and federal agents.”

Recently, he investigated a tattoo parlor in Antioch that had a painted glass door. “There’s the story about a man who has been seen peering through the glass, looking at the girls at work there,” he said.

Jensen said he has recorded a little girl’s voice in the parlor, saying, “He’s coming up the stairs.”

“Another time, we saw a figure, a translucent individual that was squatting down by an infrared light I had set up,” he said, adding that the basement is just creepy.

Jensen said he heard a story about the basement once being occupied by a man who had committed crimes in the neighborhood.

“There’s always truth behind folklore,” Jensen said. “There’s always some form of truth.”

Both Jensen and Tony Olszewski, founder of McHenry County Paranormal Research Group, have been asked to investigate the Mother Rudd House in Gurnee over the years.

The home, built in 1841 on what became Old Grand Avenue, now houses a museum for the Warren Township Historical Society. It was once a stop along the Underground Railroad, where slaves were given sanctuary on their way to freedom.

Jensen and Olszewksi said they’ve documented paranormal events at the home, but none were threatening.

“We heard voices of a young child it sounded like the child was comfortable in the house,” Jensen said.

But Mary Worth, a woman who lived nearby during that era, is not a benign spirit.

Legend says during the time of the Underground Railroad, Worth was murdering slaves instead of helping them. Some claim she was a witch.

“The townspeople took justice into their own hands,” Jensen said. “They hung her on her property. If you walk along Dilleys Road on the west side, you’ll find a huge tree stump down to the ground. That is the tree that allegedly she was hung from.”

In the past few years, developers have moved an old stone that likely marked her grave, Jensen said, adding that they began losing money until they put the stone back.

After he died, Rohrer added, the family living there reported a piano playing on its own and a figure in the attic.
