Meeting fails to end Parliament logjam, govt indicates all-party meet 30.7.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
An all-party meeting convened by the Lok Sabha Speaker on Thursday failed to break the Parliamentary deadlock but government indicated it was ready to convene an all-party meeting in a bid to end the logjam. The indication came after the Opposition threw the ball in the government's court saying it was for it to take initiative and the logjam would continue till then. Under opposition attack, Home Minister Rajnath Singh indicated that the government was open to calling an all-party meet to break the impasse. Leader of the Congress Mallikarjun Kharge accused the government of not reaching out to the Opposition and TMC leader Sudip Bandhyopadhyay charged it with harbouring a "very undemocratic" attitude.

The man with the toughest job in the world | Janine di Giovanni 30.7.2015 The Guardian -- World Latest
When Staffan de Mistura became UN special envoy, his past successes brought hope for peace. A year later, with no solution in sight, he faces heavy criticism. Has his innovative diplomacy failed or is it simply mission impossible? In July 2014, Staffan de Mistura, a 68-year old Italian-Swedish diplomat, was enjoying a peaceful semi-retirement on the isle of Capri when he received a telephone call from his former boss, the United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki-moon , offering him what might be the world’s most difficult job. De Mistura had worked under Ban as the chief of the UN missions to Afghanistan and Iraq, and he was now being asked to take up a role as the UN’s special envoy for Syria – charged with finding a peaceful resolution to one of the bloodiest and most complex wars of our time. De Mistura hesitated. Following a stint as a deputy foreign minister in the Italian government, he had recently become the director of Villa San Michele, a Swedish cultural foundation on Capri, and he was ...

The guide, developed by University of New Hampshire students and staff in 2013, attracted little attention until a conservative news site featured it this week

The president of the University of New Hampshire said Wednesday he is troubled and offended by many parts of a “bias-free language guide” posted on the school’s website, particularly a suggestion that using the word “American” is problematic because it fails to recognize South America.

The guide, developed by students and staff in 2013, attracted little attention until this week, when it was featured on the conservative news site Campus Reform. Asked about it on Wednesday, university president Mark Huddleston said the guide is not campus policy.
