Accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government for its "crony capitalism", Congress today said the Modi government was gaining popularity because of "good event management" not "good governance". "Narendra Modi is gaining popularity in the country and abroad because of his good event management. In reality, no development work is visible as yet", Congress spokesperson Ajoy Kumar said. "Anyone can see the condition of Okhla in the national capital even if we would talk about Modis Swachh Bharat Abhiyan," he said.

Minnesota not even close to meeting federal emission standards 21.11.2014 MinnPost
Nope, not even close. At MPR, Elizabeth Dunbar says , “Even with its renewable energy standard and new solar law, Minnesota is not on track to meet federal emissions reductions aimed at addressing climate change, state officials said Thursday. Minnesota would need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than a third by 2030 under proposed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules. But the state is on track to reduce emissions only by 3 percent by then, said David Thornton, an assistant commissioner for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.” At City Pages, Ben Johnson looks at Al Franken rattling the trendy ride-sharing company Uber’s cage and says, “Franken wants some answers from Uber after a BuzzFeed story quoted one of Uber's top executives suggesting the company should dig up dirt on journalists critical of the company. Franken, the chair of a Senate subcommittee on privacy and technology, sent a letter to Uber's CEO yesterday asking 10 pointed questions about Uber's privacy policy. Franken ...
