The job paradox

first_imgA paradox is a situation when a mathematician proves a thing true which is otherwise untrue. The latest CII report on net job creation in the MSME sector probably falls in this category of paradox as against all gloom over joblessness in the country. The report was a surprise because only a few weeks ago NSSO’s leaked survey said the unemployment rate was worst in 45 years. The chairman of PM’s Economic Advisory Council had said, “We will have a new round of the NSS which will… show …substantial employment and substantiated job creation”. Now CII has come up with a survey that proves his claim. Everything seems to have a pattern in this election season. The CII report claimed that MSME sector in India has shown a 13.9 per cent net increase in jobs in the last four years, ie a 3.3 per cent growth per year. It was the result of surveying 1.05 lakh selected MSME firms based in 350 industrial centres across 28 states of the country. CII research scholars, let us assume they are bonafide, seem to have forgotten to verify the survey results they landed at with other tools available. A little common sense will convince that the level of growth in job creation should have been reflected in the growth pattern of everything of or related to MSMEs, such as investment, credits, production, electricity consumption, deployment of machineries, and the status of their being operational or closure etc on the one hand, and savings, consumption, and well-being of the employees on the other on the other. Since MSME is the second largest sector in providing employment in the country giving employment to about 12 crore people, such level of net job creation should have not been gone unnoticed by common people as well as experts. One cannot understand as to why there is no explanation on the fact that out of about 63.4 million registered units few millions remained non-starter, and another few millions shut down. As per a report published by SIDBI in association with TransUnion Cibil only 51 million MSME units were operational at the end of the period under consideration. Shutting down or closure of about 12.4 million units does not reflect the growth. Every document, the government’s and the institutions’ mentioned the adverse impact of demonetisation and implementation of GST, from which the MSMEs are now recovering, albeit slowly. Even RBI mentioned the dual economic disruption for the corresponding period in connection with the credit off-take by MSMEs which remained very poor along with overall NPA rate for the sector hovering around 8 to 11 per cent. One of the SIDBI-Cibil report mentioned that default rate among the MSME borrowers taking multiple loans for a period of 60 days have increased from 2.5 per cent to 4 per cent during September 2015 to September 2018. Even Industry people claim that MSMEs are in crisis and therefore, they are not able to earn even enough to pay their debt. Had there been growth in jobs, it would have been translated into earning of the MSMEs with less number of defaulters. One cannot also ignore the fact that the growth of MSME GVA has been sharply declining since 2012-13 when it was 15.27 per cent. The latest data available with the Central Statistics Office (CSO) shows that the growth rate declined to 7.62 per cent at the end of March 2016 per cent of the GDP. When we consider it in the backdrop of the widening of the domain of this sector across sectors of the economy producing a diverse range of products and services the relative growth of each individual sector, it is clear that all of them are declining. The trend aggravated more sharply after demonetisation and introduction of GST. In the backdrop of the recent controversy over ‘jobs’ and ‘joblessness’ in India, the CII survey itself has become a suspect. First, because the report lauds certain Union Government’s programmes such as a beneficiary does. Secondly, the pragmatics of language reveals that its language is not that much neutral as a research work or survey requires. Thirdly, it has its limitation too obvious, because the data on which the report is compiled is provided by the government’s Labour Bureaus. Fourthly, it has a very small fresh empirical data set that cannot be treated as conclusive and quality of sampling and analysing data is questionable. The sample is from the operating MSMEs while the job losses in about 12.4 million shutdown or closed units are not taken into consideration while calculating the net job creation. Moreover, the claim contradicts all available data provided by the government and other national and international institutions. In the fag-end of January this year, the leaked NSSO’s report said that joblessness in India touched 6.1 per cent, the worst since 1972-73, in July 2017-June 2018. The government was not ready to publish this report though it was scheduled to be released in December last year. Two of the senior members had to resign in protest. NITI Aayog clarified that the report was being processed, but not contradicted or approved the content. Aayog merely called it a draft report and promised to share it by March, which is yet to happen. NITI Aayog CEO, however, had accepted lack of good quality jobs and the crisis of the large informal and MSME sector. The Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy, a leading independent think-tank, said the country lost as many as 11 million jobs last year. Though the Govt of India claimed that MSMEs have created 11.10 crore jobs during 2014-18, we find discrepancies in the data. How such level of job creation is possible when even skilled persons are not getting jobs? For example, MSME technology centres skilled 6.42 lakh people but provided only 91.6 thousand jobs in four years. Under ATI, 2.07 lakh people were trained but only 43.7 thousand got wage employment, and 21.7 thousand could be self-employed. A recent RBI report said that the core problem of MSMEs of lack of access to formal finance remains which means the sector is still suffering from financial crisis. How can they have contributed to job creation up to such an extent while struggling for their own survival? Most probably the CII survey has landed at wrong conclusion. There is no reason to believe it to be true and all other directly or indirectly contradicting official and non-official reports false.(The views expressed are strictly personal)last_img read more

Bring on the clowns UN agency finds new ally in helping Iraqi

28 December 2007The United Nations refugee agency has enlisted a new ally – red-nosed clowns – to help put Iraqi children traumatized by the violence of their homeland at ease while they register for school in neighbouring Syria. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) first learnt about the positive benefits of clowns when a local troupe was hired on World Refugee Day in June to perform in the tense and unhappy waiting room at its main registration centre in Damascus, the Syrian capital, making the children more relaxed. “We know that one in five refugees that register with UNHCR are victims of violence or torture in Iraq,” UNHCR Representative Laurens Jolles said. “This means that many families, particularly children, are traumatized when they come to us. The clowns offer a rare opportunity for parents and children to smile during the otherwise very difficult experience of registering with UNHCR.” Three people came forward when the agency put out a message that it was looking for Iraqi clowns to perform a regular show at the registration centre as part of its “Back to School” campaign. They became UNHCR’s first outreach volunteers from the Iraqi community. There are more than 1.4 million Iraqi refugees in Syria. UNHCR asked the independent international group, Clowns Without Borders, to review the first show, which focused on informing parents and children that all Iraqi children have the right to attend school. Clowns Without Borders returned in November to offer further training to the clowns, and welcome laughter therapy for UNHCR, the Syrian Arab Red Crescent and UNICEF staff. At a community centre in Seida Zeinab, one of the main Iraqi refugee areas in Damascus, a crowd of children burst out laughing as two clowns squirted each other with water and made flowers out of balloons. “It was beautiful,” said Rodeen, a beaming smile covering her face during the show. After the show the young girl returned to her place hiding behind her aunt’s legs. For the three Iraqi clowns, members of the multi-ethnic, multi-religious Baghdad-based Happy Family Group, the main goal is to make children laugh. Their members are now spread across the region, living as refugees. One colleague was killed in Iraq. “We’re doing this to make the children happy in order to remove the fears and memories of bombs and bad days,” one of the clowns, Rahman Eidi, said. “We also want to teach children about the importance of school.” The clowns perform a daily show at the UNHCR Registration Centre, then spend a couple of hours supporting the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and Syrian Arab Red Crescent colleagues who staff the child-friendly space at the centre. Several times a week they perform at community centres, offering a rare diversion for many refugee families. This also helps to bring families into the centres to learn about other services offered by UNHCR. read more

Zynga stock tumbles afterhours following weakerthanexpected 2nd quarter

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Zynga’s stock is tanking after the online game maker reported a loss in the second quarter, with adjusted earnings and revenue below Wall Street’s already-low expectations.The company behind games such as “CityVille” and “FarmVille” also lowered its outlook for the year because of delayed games, reduced expectations for its “Draw Something” game and what it called a “more challenging environment on the Facebook Web platform.”Zynga derives nearly all of its revenue from games played on Facebook, and a growing number of Facebook users are accessing the social network using mobile devices rather than computers. That hurts Web-based games such as Zynga’s.Zynga Inc. said Wednesday that it lost US$22.8 million, or 3 cents per share, in the April-June quarter. That’s down from earnings of $1.4 million a year ago when it was still privately held. Its per-share results last year were at breakeven.Adjusted earnings in the latest quarter were a penny per share, below expectations of 5 cents per share.Zynga’s revenue grew 19 per cent to $332 million. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had expected $342.8 million.Zynga had a lot riding on this quarter. Investors had been punishing its stock because of worries about declining user numbers.But the results provided no relief. Zynga’s stock sank $2.09, or 41 per cent, to $2.99 in after-hours trading after the results came out. The stock had closed up 16 cents at $5.08 during the regular session.Facebook’s stock also declined after Zynga’s announcement. The bad news from Zynga could hurt Facebook, which reports its earnings on Thursday. Facebook’s stock fell $2.54, or 8.7 per cent, to $26.80 in after-hours trading.Zynga also said Wednesday that its chairman and CEO, Mark Pincus, became the beneficial owner of more than 50 per cent of the company’s voting power through stock he owns. by News Staff Posted Jul 25, 2012 5:15 pm MDT Zynga stock tumbles after-hours following weaker-than-expected 2nd quarter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Ebola no longer localized emergency UN health officials tell regional summit in

Speaking on behalf of the Secretary-General at the Summit of Heads of State of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of our Americas (ALBA) on Ebola,Dr. David Nabarro, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy on Ebola, said cooperation and solidarity are essential, and Cuba and Venezuela, with their contributions, have already demonstrated this. “I urge countries in the region and around the world to follow the lead of Cuba and Venezuela, who have set a commendable example with their rapid response in support of efforts to contain Ebola,” he said. Saying that Cuba’s solidarity with other developing countries is well established, Dr. Nabarro commended the Government of the Caribbean island for dispatching a team of 165 medical aid workers to West Africa in early October.“Cuba’s proud tradition of training doctors from developing countries has also helped improve medical care around the world,” Dr. Nabarro said. Cuba plans to send more medical workers soon. Over the years, Cuba has sent thousands of medical workers abroad, including to 39 African countries. Venezuela has also joined efforts to combat Ebola by contributing $5 million to the UN Ebola Response Multi-Partner Trust Fund, which supports the needs and requirements of UN agencies, funds and partners working to eliminate Ebola in West Africa. “[Ebola] has wide and profound economic, humanitarian, political and security dimensions. We must act decisively to relieve the burden on the people and Governments of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone and stop the spread of Ebola to other countries,” said Dr. Nabarro. “By convening this timely summit, ALBA member States can substantially assist in attaining these objectives. I wish you a productive meeting,” he added. Joining the forum via video, Dr. Margaret Chan, the Head of the World Health Organization (WHO), told participants that “you are absolutely doing the right thing. You want to step up your level of preparedness.” “Last month, the Ebola virus moved to your region…to the United States…any country with an international airport is theoretically at risk of an imported cased of Ebola,” she said. She thanked Cuba for contributing the much-needed nurses and doctors to affected countries. The staff in their “sparkling white lab jackets brings a most welcomed face of hope to what is otherwise a horrific outbreak,” Dr. Chan added. The virus is deadly. The disease is dreadful. People are afraid. At the same time, a well-prepared country can defeat Ebola. Countries in the Bolivarian alliance need to train their staff, use drills to test performance, get protocols written quickly, get your public and media behind you, engage the community early to fight fear with facts. On its own, protective gear is not fool proof, she said. Also today, WHO officially declared Nigeria free of Ebola virus transmission, after 42 days without a single case. In a statement, the WHO called it a spectacular success story that shows that Ebola can be contained. Such a story can help the many other developing countries that are deeply worried by the prospect of an imported Ebola case and eager to improve their preparedness plans. This announcement comes only a few days after Senegal was also declared to be Ebola-free.Strong public awareness campaigns, teamed with early engagement of traditional, religious and community leaders, has played a key role in successful containment of this outbreak.On the funding front, the Trust Fund set up by the Secretary-General for the EbolaResponse, now has $8.8 million in deposits and $5 million in commitments. In total, $43.5 million has been pledged and the Secretary-General continues to urge countries to turn these pledges into action as soon as possible. All numbers are available on the Ebola Multi-Partner Trust Fund’s website.In other news, a UN Women staff member in Sierra Leone passed away this weekend from Ebola, the Secretary-General’s spokesperson said as he briefed journalists in New York. The deceased staff member’s spouse is currently receiving treatment. All measures to protect staff at the duty station in Sierra Leone are being taken as best as possible under the current circumstances. This includes decontamination of the UN clinic, and disposal of the isolation facility and contact tracing. read more

Horse owners should get financial help to tackle unwanted equine problems

first_imgTHE GROWING PROBLEM of unwanted horses should be tackled by the government introducing a scheme to provide financial assistance to horse owners, Senator Fidelma Healy Eames has said.She made her comments the same day that it emerged that over 50 horses – and three horse carcasses  – were removed from a site in the Hollyhill area of Cork.Senator Healy Eames also said that she has been looking into the cost of local authorities of disposing abandoned or badly treated animals. In 2011, the cost was €2,704,630.88, while it was €2,199,118.62 in 2012.The Senator said that there has been a huge increase in horse numbers in the country in the past few years, and that “many families who bought horses in the boom no longer have the financial means to feed and groom them”.As one farmer said to me ‘this is a huge issue, the country is flooded with horses. Everyone had a horse during the Celtic tiger’. As it stands owners have to pay €70 to get a passport to sell a horse so the animal is identifiable. If the horse is over five months old the passport is automatically stamped ‘not fit for human consumption’.She said that because some horses who are destined for slaughter are ‘not fit for human consumption’ due to fears they were previously treated with antibiotics or bute, “the effect of this approach is that owners are abandoning and allowing their horses to become an animal welfare issue”.Because it costs councils so much money to deal with the horses, Senator Healy Eames said that testing horse meat in meat factories “is the sensible solution to this growing problem”.She said this would involve the horse carcass being sampled and laboratory analysed as was done during the BSE crisis with cattle.The cost of the sampling should be borne by the owner and on receipt of an ‘all clear result’ the owner should then be paid for his animal by the factory. If the animal is antibiotic free then he is of value to the economy in the form of our horse meat export industry.The Senator believes her proposed measure will incentivise farmers to pay for the animal passport and laboratory sampling “as there is a good chance the farmer/owner will get paid for his animal”.Read: Over 50 horses seized from Cork site>last_img read more

Naked Password encourages strong pwords with promise of nudity

first_imgNo matter what services you sign up for, chances are they require a password. No password is completely secure, but you can go a long way towards keeping it as secure as possible by choosing a strong password.The problem with strong passwords is they turn out to be quite difficult or even impossible to remember. A strong password requires use of non-english words, must be as long as possible, and contains special characters to form a nonsensical sequence. Without a password manager or sheet of paper you could find yourself a bit lost recalling that 24-digit strong password you created.Naked Password wants you to choose a strong password regardless, and aims to encourage you to do so with the promise of nudity. It’s just a bit of fun, but may turn out to be surprisingly effective.On the Naked Password website you can try out a demo. You are asked to enter a password and the beautiful model Sally “tastefully removes items of clothing as the password grows stronger”.Sally is a little pixelated character, so she really won’t offend anyone with her promise of graphic nudity. We do feel the service would encourage more experimental and secure passwords with a higher resolution set of images and multiple girls, however.Head on over to Naked Password to see how you could easily use Sally on your own website for free.via Business Insiderlast_img read more

Pakistans support to terrorism behind Kashmir turmoil claims

first_imgRawalakot: A political activist has lambasted Pakistan for creating turmoil in Jammu and Kashmir for decades by using terrorism as a tool to set its agenda. Sardar Saghir, a leader of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) told Tanveer Ahmad, a local journalist, that Pakistan has been using terrorists as proxies to create instability in Jammu and Kashmir. Also Read – Pakistan test-fires 290-km range missile Advertise With Us “The indigenous movement of Kashmir’s liberation was sabotaged in 1947 (by Pakistan) by sending Pashtun tribal forces in the region. In the late 1980s, when the people of Jammu and Kashmir launched another movement, it was highjacked (by Pakistan) in 1989 by forming terror groups such as Hizbul Mujahideen and Jamiat-ul-Mujahideen,” Saghir said.

In 1992-93, we condemned these non-state actors, which were brought in by Pakistan’s spy agencies. It has sabotaged our peaceful struggle. The world community is now looking it as an act of terrorism,” he added. Saghir is one of the vocal activists in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), where people are suffering from persecution and terrorism. Advertise With Us “After the 9/11 incident, strict measures were taken against terrorism and our peaceful struggle was backtracked. However, we continued to protest. When Pakistan was pressurised by the international community then besides LeT, they further started promoting Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) headed by Maulana Masood Azhar.” Recently, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan confessed that about 30,000-40,000 terrorists have been trained in some parts of Afghanistan and Kashmir. The activist added that Pakistan has been using PoK’s territory as a launchpad for terrorists to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir. “Now, JeM terrorists are getting trained at a very large scale to infiltrate into India. The world attention was towards the Kashmir valley, but Pakistan’s intelligence agencies have diverted it deliberately. These militants are infiltrating, getting killed and will be killed in future,” he said.last_img read more

Former Rockstar artist shares screenshots of unseen stealth action game

first_imgDoes anyone remember the game Agent? It’s a stealth action title Rockstar began developing way back in 2007, but didn’t confirm it existed until 2009 when Agent became a PlayStation 3 exclusive. However, since then we’ve heard close to nothing about the game.Now, we have 10 new screenshots, albeit newly leaked screenshots of a rapidly aging game that looks like it will never see the light of day. The screens come via former Rockstar artist Darren Charles Hatton who worked at the developer for a year between June 2009-2010. He was an environmental artist on the project, but his team got transferred on to Grand Theft Auto V, which has left Agent in an indefinite limbo ever since.As you can see from the environment screenshots, these are clearly last-gen graphics. If Rockstar is set on continuing with the development of the game, I suspect the art team would start afresh and target the PS4. This would allow not only better looking environments, but much larger ones, too.Agent’s story is set during the Cold War, with the gameplay focusing on counter-intelligence and espionage. Assassinations looked to play a role, which is where the stealth action comes in. Of the little we do know, it certainly sounds like an interesting idea, and with this being Rockstar we could (should still?) expect a well-polished title.It’s still unclear whether Agent will ever be completed. The last we heard, Rockstar and publisher Take-Two Interactive had renewed trademarks for the Agent brand, but that was in 2013. Maybe now GTA V is out the door and development on GTA Online has settled down a final decision will be made about the future, or lack there of, of Agent.last_img read more

This is the best LeBron James weve ever seen

first_imgIf the Warriors could sweep the Cavs they would be the greatest team everMost of the NBA media has hotly debated whether LeBron would surpass MJ with another title over the Warriors’ superteam, but not many are talking about what a historical accomplishment it would be if Golden State could manage to go undefeated through the Western Conference and somehow manage to dominate the Cavs in the Finals.Right now, the Warriors are winning by record margins of victory, and even though Colin still gives the Cavs the edge in the Finals, the possibility exists for Golden State to unseat the Bulls as the greatest single team ever.“If the Warriors go 16-0 or 16-1, and win by 17, you’ve got your greatest team ever.” This is the best LeBron James we’ve ever seenThe Cavs crushed the Celtics, 117-104, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals and LeBron toyed with the Celtics all night in a dominant 38-point, 9 rebound, 7 assist performance that left most people with functioning eyes thinking sweep.Today in The Herd, Colin said LeBron is playing at the highest level of any time in his career, in his 14th year. He’s shooting better than ever from outside, more efficient than ever, and just got close to a month’s rest. If the Cavs sweep, he’ll get even more.Even though the regular season was unwatchable, the Finals grudge match between the powerhouse Warriors and the Cavs will be all that anyone remembers if it comes anywhere near to living up to the hype.With LeBron playing like he is now, Colin thinks the Cavs have the slight edge in the matchup.“The gap is not closing.
