The raptors guarding Mexico’s airport 1.2.2018 General News
Far from the crowds of passengers, lines and passport control, Madison spreads his wings on the side of a runway at Mexico’s international airport, the busiest in Latin America. He is one of several peregrine falcons deployed to prevent “bird strikes” — a hazardous collision between birds and planes that can have dangerous and even catastrophic consequences. In 2009, for instance, a US Airways jet had to set down on the Hudson River in New York after a flock of birds took out its engines. In January this year, a Mexico-bound KLM flight made an emergency landing after hitting birds on take- off in the Netherlands. “It’s dangerous. Birds don’t mix with planes. They can hit a turbine,” Oscar Chavez, a 26-year-old who is one of the biologists handling the falcons in Mexico, told AFP. Each day, Madison and another peregrine falcon named Ilse are on duty at the airport, which sees 44 million passengers pass through it each year. “The other birds realize a predator is around ..

Sindhu in semis; Saina bows out of India Open 2.2.2018 General News
Top seed PV Sindhu remained in hunt to defend her title by reaching the women’s singles semifinals but Saina Nehwal, the other top home shuttler, was knocked out of the India Open, here today. Saina, who reached the finals at Indonesia Masters last week, looked a little sluggish in her movement and committed too many unforced errors to go down 10-21 13-21 to World No 11 American Beiwen Zhang. Olympic silver medallist Sindhu, however, recovered from a mid-game slump to outwit Spains world no 36 Beatriz Corrales 21-12 19-21 21-11 in the other quarterfinal. The World Championship silver medallist will next face 2013 World champion and world no. 3 Thai Ratchanok Inthanon. Mixed doubles pair of N Sikki Reddy and Pranaav Jerry Chopra, who had reached the semifinals at Japan Open last year, entered the final four again here after beating Chinese combo of Han Chengkai and Cao Tong Wei 21-8 21-13. “We are not as physically strong as Asians, so after coach Kim Tan Her joined, he …

Railway employees’ union says budget ‘anti-worker’ 2.2.2018 General News
A railway employees’ association today said the Union Budget for 2018-19 was “anti-workers” as there was nothing for their welfare. In a statement, the All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF) said the budget came as “a dampener” for the entire sector. “It is a very disappointing budget for the hardworking workers. There is nothing for their welfare in the budget and instead of relaxation in personal tax, they have increased education and health cess. The workers have been duped,” AIRF general secretary Shiv Gopal Mishra said. In the budget, Rs 314.24 crore has been earmarked for amenities for railway staff. Last year, it was Rs 235.76 crore. For staff quarters, an additional sum of Rs 353 crore has been allotted in the budget. The railways also has a corpus of Rs 762.58 crore for compensation claims of workmen. The association also criticised the government’s move towards fixed-term employment, stating that this policy would be used to easily fire workers and was …

Trade unions slam Budget for neglecting labour woes 1.2.2018 General News
Central trade unions including Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh (BMS) today criticised the government for not giving attention to commoners in the Budget, saying “it has totally neglected the labour woes”. Disappointed over the Budget, the BMS has decided to hold countrywide demonstrations tomorrow. “Even though today’s budget for the first time has given more thrust to rural development, agriculture, health, infrastructure etc, it has totally neglected the woes of labour,” BMS General Secretary Virjesh Upadhyay said in a statement. He said the Anganwadi workers, ASHA karmis and other scheme workers, who are among the poorest-paid workers appointed under the Central Government, have got no relief in the budget. He further said the middle class employees are unhappy as there is increase in the tax exemption ceiling, while the cess on income tax has been increased from 3 per cent to 4 per cent and this was done at a time when the budget claims 41 per cent increase in the tax …

Govt’s fixed-term employment for all sectors irks trade unions 1.2.2018 Deccan Herald – News
The government on Thursday announced extending fixed-term contract jobs to all sectors in the union budget only to attract strong criticism from Sangh-affiliated Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, which said permanent jobs are going to extinct soon. The BMS announced a nationwide protest on Friday against the “total neglect” of labourers as “none of our demands were met” by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Emphasising that creating job opportunities and facilitating generation of employment has been at the core of policy-making, Jaitley said, “the facility of fixed-term employment will be extended to all sectors.” So far, fixed-term employment was allowed in apparel and footwear sectors and the Ministry of Labour on January 8 issued a draft regulation seeking opinion from stakeholders on the issue. The government feels that this would help in employment generation and help in ease of doing business as it would enable companies hire workers for short-term assignments and terminate their services when projects are …
