Narendra Modi’s US visit underplayed issues of diaspora; tiptoeing Donald Trump could push away Indian caucus

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has just returned from the United States, where he held bilateral talks with the new US President Donald Trump for the first time.

There have been mixed reactions with some analysts describing the trip as very fruitful to reaffirm the faith in the strategic ties between them the collaboration of defense between the two countries and the willingness to fight terrorism together under radical Islam.

But there are others who say, and quite rightly, perhaps, that the journey was devoid of striking and substance.

As the Indian-American professor Amit Gupta recalls this author, there are still five relations between India and the United States: government memory for government; The military-military relationship between Bangalore and Silicon Valley; The one that exists between the Indian students and universities of the United States; And, finally, the one that exists between the Indian Diaspora and India.

Of these, the first two are those in which the Government of India attributes most of hope, but these are also the most problematic. In fact, relations at the political and military levels – which have increased significantly in recent years – seem to boast a bit.

For example, highly talked about cooperation in equipment purchase and investment defense has its obvious limitations, since India is in the minor leagues for US manufacturers compared to Saudi Arabia, which has signed an agreement of 110 billion Of dollars in arms.

On the other hand, when we talk about US investment in the Indian defense sector, it must be understood that the investable resources are in the private sector of the United States, which, in turn, make their own investment stops, according to With the infrastructure of the beneficiary countries, legal regime, the administrative mechanism and, above all, a broad political consensus on the liberalization of the economy.

And here, India is not up to it. There is another limiting factor: armor industries in India today inability to absorb technology that foreign companies are willing to transfer.

However, the other three parameters of the relationship between India and the United States are very important and have enormous potential to take to the country because they are less complicated. Unfortunately, under Trump’s presidency, there are serious questions about them, but the Trump-Modi discussions seem to have taken care of them properly.

In general, the relationship between Bangalore and Silicon Valley, which among students in India and US universities and between the Indian diaspora and India, means that there is free exchange of finance, technology, and people between India and the United States.

But it is precisely in danger today that the Trump administration imposes restrictions on the issuance of H-1B to the highly skilled Indians, discouraging American companies from investing abroad under the direction of generator jobs for Americans in America and, lastly , Of not doing enough to prevent racial attacks against the life and property of the Indians or those of Indian origin living in the United States.

Immigration policies Trump and the multiplicity of attacks on the Indians in recent months will definitely complement things.

It should be noted that the Indian diaspora to nearly 2.5 million in the US. – comprised of people of Indian origin (IOP) and non-resident Indians, including students, teachers, scientists, technologists – may account for approximately 1% of the total population of the United States, but this is one of the richest and The most qualified in the country.

'Pokemon Go' is great again, thanks to its sweeping new update

‘Pokemon Go’ is great again, thanks to its sweeping new update

Last week, “Pokemon Go” has received a new update, bringing the radical changes and multiplayer battles expected long from the game.

These changes are only in time: While “Pokemon Go” is approaching its first anniversary, the first mega-hype about the game has almost disappeared. Make no mistake, there are still 65 million active players, including myself, but the game became vague for many – even the first “Pokemon Go” left the game due to the lack of new worlds to conquer.

Fortunately for everyone, the new versions are just what the doctor ordered. While I never stopped playing casually, I upgraded to the street again in my quest to catch them all.

After a year of even a multiplayer player, the new update actually makes “Pokémon Go” again – and paves the way for more interesting things.

The oldest form
The basics of “Pokemon Go” have not changed. Players explore the real world in search of Pokémon that can appear anywhere.

Along the way, players will find Pokestops that distribute useful items when walking near their location and gyms, guarded against the attack of the most powerful Pokémon of another player in a variant of King Hill.

The problem with the original installation is that it gets old quickly. Players soon discovered that only a few Pokémon – usually Dragonite, a rare dragon deviation – were, in fact, statistics needed to keep attackers from getting along in gymnastics.

In addition, players ran to inflate their collections with mega-powerful some copies of these Pokémon, and many choose to cheat to get the biggest and worst monsters.

The net result: players were forced to grind against the same handful of Pokemon for dinner, again and again, just to make a dent in the gym.

And even if they were somehow victorious, these hardcore players would déchausseraient quite instantly. It soon became apparent that it was not worth it, so many players did not get upset.

The new heat
Niantic, the developer of “Pokemon Go” took the time to implement these updates, but obviously they were well treated.

With this update, Pokémon placed in gyms loses “motivation” and thus more combat power is placed in a gym.

If the motivation reset button, the Pokemon is automatically ejected. Motivation can be restored by introducing berries each Pokémon to the gym regularly.

DHS officials announce enhanced security measures for all flights to U.S. but won’t expand laptop ban

Wednesday US authorities increased security measures and detection of all commercial flights in the US, but have moved away from a proposal to extend the ban to laptops and other electronic devices – unless airlines and Airports refused to comply with the new rules.

Since March, passengers were allowed to fly to the United States. Of some predominantly Muslim countries to carry larger electronic devices like the on-board mobile phone with them. However, these restrictions could be lifted if airlines and affected airports adopt new security protocols, officials said.

Officials at the Ministry of National Security said that airlines and airports are responsible for implementing changes and new communication procedures for travelers.

Officials declined to provide details of the changes, citing security concerns, but said they could include detection of laptops and smartphones improved and improved security protocols around the aircraft and passenger areas.
The hope is that the new requirements would not translate into longer waiting times at security checkpoints or would be prohibitive for airlines and airports to implement.

At a briefing with the press, senior DHS officials indicated that the requirements to “raise the baseline” in aviation security around the world. The guidelines aim to prevent terrorists from all over air safety.

“The time has come to consider the global baseline of aviation security,” said Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly. “We can not play hit-and-run with every new international threat.”

Despite talking about expanding the ban on laptops and other large electronic devices created in March, DHS said that Kelly finally came to the conclusion that threats could be addressed without expanding the ban.

“The good news is we’ve found a way to raise the bar in the world, but at the same time they do not care for travelers,” said Kelly, who announced new security measures at a conference for a New US Security Center.

DHS officials said they had “constant contact with our interinstitutional, our industry and our international partners to address evolving threats” and had the common goal of implementing measures that would be a minimum of disruption to travelers.

However, airlines and airports that do not meet the new requirements could face repercussions, including a total ban on all personal electronic devices on flights, including freight; Fines and possible loss of your permit to fly to the United States.

Officials, however, said they expected the vast majority of airlines and airports by the rules. Flights to the United States will not be affected, in part because airports are already using several enhanced security measures that are requested.

DHS officials said they had been in contact with airlines and countries covered by the current ban and that “all these countries had expressed their willingness to comply with these restrictions can be lifted.”

“We are ready to go in and inspect the way they adhere to the new security restrictions,” the official said. “They are the carriers of how quickly you want to move.”
