A seemingly innocuous statement by Sharad Pawar on Dec 20, 2009, attributing the existing price rise of consumer goods to ‘global warming’ jolted me into writing this piece. Sheer baloney, was it! The price inflation during the past two years has been phenomenal. Does it not demonstrate GOI’s failure in controlling price rise? Will the country’s economists including the PM agree with such frivolous and escapist statement of Agriculture minister on ‘Food Security’? Let us spare a word about the BPLs (37% as per GOI estimate) . They do not get two square meals a day. They merely get election promises on ‘Food Security’ in terms of UPA’s mandate. On the contrary, the mollycoddled MPs who represent them get total’ food security’ through highly subsidized canteens located inside the Parliament House, its Annexe and the Library. Is this concealed subsidy justified? One feels such food security to MPs in the temple of democracy is a blot on the Parliament. How could these parliamentarians digest food at such abysmally low price and debate the issue of 'Food Security ‘for the down-trodden. This is hypocrisy at its worst!. Worse still, enjoying virtually free lunches and dinners by the staff and officers of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Sectts looks to me down- right vulgar, to say the least! I have personally seen them shamelessly enjoying the 5-Star grub during the deliberations of the Standing Finance Committees attached to various ministries. All this at the tax-payers’ cost. Will the Speaker, Lok Sabha and Deputy Chairman, Rajya Sabha jointly ponder over these matters seriously in a transparent manner and order immediate withdrawal of concealed subsidies to Parliamentary food jaunts. These heavenly canteens must also be declared in-accessible to the Parliamentary Secretariat babus and Security Staff. Let the Parliamentarians cutting across party lines lead by examples and boycott these canteens, run by the Railways, if they have the slightest concerns for the poor.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Most of what you mention is supprisingly accurate and that makes me wonder why I hadn't looked at this with this light before. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this particular topic goes. Nevertheless there is one position I am not really too comfy with so while I try to reconcile that with the actual main idea of the issue, allow me see exactly what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Well done.

Thanks for your post on the vacation industry. I might also like to add that if you are one senior contemplating traveling, it can be absolutely imperative that you buy traveling insurance for senior citizens. When traveling, elderly people are at greatest risk of having a professional medical emergency. Obtaining the right insurance package for the age group can safeguard your health and provide peace of mind.

One thing I'd really like to say is always that before buying more pc memory, consider the machine within which it is installed. In case the machine is actually running Windows XP, for instance, the memory limit is 3.25GB. Using a lot more than this would just constitute a waste. Make certain that one's mother board can handle the actual upgrade quantity, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

Thanks for the recommendations you have provided here. Another thing I would like to express is that personal computer memory requirements generally increase along with other developments in the technologies. For instance, as soon as new generations of processor chips are introduced to the market, there is certainly usually an equivalent increase in the size and style demands of all personal computer memory in addition to hard drive space. This is because software program operated simply by these cpus will inevitably boost in power to take advantage of the new technologies.

If you don't know how to find the best educational institution in the world for you, I recommend you to read <a href='lifeisanepisode.com/.../'>this article</a> and also learn opportunities for Boston university students who are involved in entrepreneurship <a href="www.internetvibes.net/.../">on the website</a> in order to understand that Boston university is one of the best  educational institutions in the world. Also if you want to be involved in military exercises you can read about the fact that military-connected pupils go to the University of Chicago <a href="bootcampmilitaryfitnessinstitute.com/.../">in this article</a> and you also can go to the University of Chicago. And in the end, if you want to be connected with the geographic job you have to read about two researchers from the University of Washington will study the climate change in the arctic <a href="ventsmagazine.com/.../a>; and order a University of Chicago as one of the best universities that also has faculties connected with geographics.

If you would like to learn at good educational institutions, then you need to know about their benefits. For example, all top universities have their own applications. You can read an story about <a href="citi.io/.../">stanford mobile</a> that is called "Technological advantages of studying at top universities: is Stanford mobile an example of the best app for Stanford university students?". You also need to be aware that after you learn about the benefits of learning at top educational institutions and want to enroll in one of them, you need to write an introductory essay. That is why you can use <a href="conatusnews.com/.../a>; to buy <a href="www.mobupdates.com/.../">Princeton supplement essay</a> or some other introductory essay.
