first_imgLucknow: A day after BJP leaders prefixed ‘Chowkidar’ (watchman) to their Twitter handles, BSP leader Mayawati on Tuesday hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying he has changed his profile from ‘Chaiwala’ to ‘Chowkidar’ only to get votes in the Lok Sabha elections. “Ignoring the philosophy of simple living and high thinking, a man (Modi) who lives a regal life had advertised himself as ‘Chaiwala’ in the last Lok Sabha elections. “The same person has pronounced himself a ‘Chowkidar’ with great pomp and show in these elections only to seek votes. My country is actually changing?” Mayawati tweeted. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader mentioned that the change occured only after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) launched the “Main Bhi Chowkidar” campaign. Ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, Modi last week tweeted a video with the hashtag ‘#MainBhiChowkidar’ (I am also a watchman) and changed his Twitter handle to Chowkidar Narendra Modi. The Prime Minister also called all those fighting corruption and social evils ‘watchmen’ and asked them to participate in the campaign for a better India.last_img read more

Volkswagen outsells Toyota in first half worldwide, GM reporting results later this week by Yuri Kageyama, The Associated Press Posted Jul 27, 2015 11:26 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 28, 2015 at 6:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TOKYO – Volkswagen overtook Toyota in global vehicle sales for January-June, the first time the German automaker has come out top in the intensely competitive tallies.Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corp. said Tuesday it sold 5.02 million vehicles in the first six months of this year, down 1.5 per cent from the same period the previous year, as sales struggled especially in the languishing Japanese market.Volkswagen AG said earlier this month that it sold 5.04 million vehicles during the same period. Sales were robust in Europe and North America but fell in China, usually a strong market for the company. Its first-half sales were 0.5 per cent down from the same period in 2014.Detroit-based General Motors Corp., the top-selling automaker for more than seven decades until being surpassed by Toyota in 2008, is expected to report its figure Thursday.GM retook the sales crown in 2011, when Toyota’s production was hurt by the quake and tsunami in northeastern Japan.Toyota, which makes the Prius hybrid, Camry sedan and Lexus luxury models, made a big comeback in 2012, and has been the world’s top-selling automaker for the past three years.In the first half, Toyota’s sales grew in U.S., Mexico and China.Last year, Toyota sold 10.23 million vehicles, beating Volkswagen and General Motors. But it has said it’s expecting to sell fewer trucks and cars this year, forecasting sales will fall 1 per cent year-on-year to 10.15 million vehicles.Volkswagen sold 10.14 million vehicles in 2014. VW makes the Beetle and Golf cars, and also has the Porsche, Bugatti and Audi brands under its group.GM, which makes the Cadillac and Opel cars, was third at 9.92 million vehicles in global sales last year.The ranking could still change when numbers come in for the entire year.None of the automakers say they are trying to be No. 1 for the sake of being No. 1. But the industry crown is coveted and significant.__Follow Yuri Kageyama: http://twitter.com/yurikageyama read more

A leading economic think tank has highlighted the importance of encouraging private sector research and development (R&D) and has said that improving the availability of finance will be crucial to sustaining the recovery and rebalancing of the UK economy.The research is the subject of a forthcoming report by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR), commissioned by SMMT, which will highlight key factors set to influence the country’s ability to achieve sustained economic recovery.Findings of the report were previewed at the first meeting of the new All-Party Parliamentary Motor Group where SMMT urged government to prioritise measures that encourage private investment in Research and Development (R&D) in next month’s Comprehensive Spending Review. In the report, CEBR stresses that current lending to businesses and consumers is well below the level required to secure sustainable growth and that during the credit crunch, lending to manufacturers reduced significantly. With this in mind, the parliamentary briefing emphasised the importance of securing more and better priced finance for businesses and consumers and focused on the role that UK automotive can play in delivering the low carbon revolution.CEBR chief executive, Douglas McWilliams, said, “Productivity growth is the most important determinant of the pace of economic recovery and innovation, through R&D, plays a highly important role in enhancing that productivity. Within the next five to ten years, the automotive industry could easily become the UK’s second largest sector for R&D expenditure, but government assistance is required to ensure good access to affordable finance.”CEBR reinforced the need for government to work closely with industry to make best use of its limited resources. As an integrated group of politicians and industry leaders, the Automotive Council is already making good headway in promoting the value of the UK as a base for investment. However, in order to capitalise on UK skills and the low carbon opportunity, industry needs government to use the October spending review to boost business and consumer confidence through carefully selected measures.“Industry needs clarity from government on how it will reform the tax credit system to enable R&D, innovation and growth,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. “UK automotive has the potential to be at the heart of a global low carbon revolution that will encompass current and future technologies and fuels.”Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

The Ohio State men’s soccer team defeated Michigan State 2-1 Sunday afternoon to improve to 6-4-1 on the year and 2-0 in Big Ten conference play. The loss drops MSU to 2-6-2 on the year. “The Big Ten conference always ends up being a very, very close race,” OSU head coach John Bluem said after the game. “We are very happy to be off to such a good start.” The Buckeyes started the scoring early as junior defender Chris Gomez headed a deflected free kick from sophomore forward Omar Vallejo past the MSU goalkeeper Jeremy Clark and into the net in the ninth minute. The Spartans fired back four minutes later when freshman forward Adam Montague scored his second goal of the season on a header of his own off an assist by senior forward Domenic Barone. OSU continued the scoring flurry in the 15th minute as junior forward and team scoring leader Chris Hegngi deposited his sixth goal of the season into the net with an assist by junior midfielder Sebastian Rivas. “We knew it was going to be a difficult game so in the first half we got off to a good start scoring early,” Bluem said. “We allowed one and regained the lead right away. It leveled out after that.” There were no more goals scored in the final 75 minutes of play, but there were several shots on goal by both teams. Junior goalkeeper Matt Lampson made five saves in the second half to end the game with a season-high eight. MSU held a 13-11 shot advantage. Bluem said the team did a good job of shutting down the Spartans, but needs to do a better job defending corner and free kicks. “We need to do a better job defending restarts,” Bluem said. “And on the offensive side we need to keep better possession.” The game was Bluem’s 300th at the helm for the Buckeyes, and he said he has enjoyed his time coaching the team thus far. “It’s been a wonderful opportunity to be able to coach at Ohio State University,” Bluem said. “I have great assistant coaches with me and have been fortunate to work with absolutely great kids over the years.” The Buckeyes will take a break from Big Ten play this week as they welcome in-state rival Bowling Green (7-2-1) into Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium Wednesday at 7 p.m. read more

first_imgAll over the mining world, driver fatigue is a problem, particularly for truck drivers on long hauls, whether they be in open pits or up ramps from underground. Particular effort is being made in Queensland, Australia, where the mining industry says it will continue to work with unions and government to prevent motor vehicle accidents related to driver fatigue. Commenting on recommendations handed down on February 23 by Coroner Annette Hennessy, Chief Executive of the Queensland Resources Council Michael Roche said the QRC had for some time been working on a guidance note on fatigue with the Queensland Mines Inspectorate and the major mining unions.The problem is not just on-shift. Driving home is also a problem. Ms Hennessy made 24 recommendations to address road accidents, following two separate crashes in central Queensland involving coal miners driving home from work. She found driver fatigue was a possible factor in both crashes, but bad weather was a major contributor to a crash that claimed two lives near Yeppoon in 2005. The other crash was near Dysart in 2007.“We will carefully consider all the recommendations made by the coroner to see what more we can practically do to improve the safety of employees as they travel to and from their work places,’ said Roche. ‘Just this week, safety performance statistics released by the state government demonstrated significant continued improvement in Queensland mines’ existing world-class safety performance. Safety is the top priority of QRC members who have a goal of ‘zero harm’ and this extends to employees getting safely to and from work.“Many mines provide buses to and from mine sites and encourage their employees to use them instead of private transport. We look forward to carefully examining the recommendations and working with the Queensland Police, the Department of Transport and Main Roads, and the mining unions and mine employees to prevent death and injury on our roads.”last_img read more

Source: TheJournal.ie/YouTubeA total of 3,600 people have applied for a role in the Defence Forces since the campaign’s launch. That number is made all the more impressive when you compare it to the fact that the Defence Forces is looking to recruit 860 applicants across general service, apprentices and cadets.That’s part of honouring the Government’s commitment to keeping the strength levels of the Defence Forces – which includes the Army, Naval Service and Air Corps – at 9,500 personnel. Source: aoifeThe game, called A New Dawn, can be viewed online.The Defence Forces specifically wanted to target frequent gamers with the new campaign, so it kicked it off with a teaser trailer for what looked like a real video game.According to the Defence Forces, the trailer “received widespread attention as gaming aficionados attempted to establish its origins”. The video was viewed 500,000 times in the campaign’s first five days.Approaching recruitment in this way helped the Defences Forces engage with men and women who it might not usually make contact with. On the website, the viewer assumes the viewpoint of a real-life soldier as they take part in a number of missions. At various points, a recruitment message appears on screen, which brings the person to an application form. Source: aoifeThe Defence Forces said that the scenario, “where every decision has a consequence, offers an unprecedented opportunity for players to appreciate the skill, determination and courage required of Defence Forces personnel as they conduct their basic training”.This isn’t the first time that the Defence Forces has created a targeted campaign – last year, it won a Silver Lion at the Cannes Festival of Creativity for its female-focused campaign.This new campaign invites young men and women between the ages of 18 and 24 to ‘Join Our Team’.At the launch of the campaign in February, Defence Minister Paul Kehoe encouraged women and “new Irish” in particular to join up, saying:“It is important that Óglaigh na hÉireann represents the richness and diversity of the community it serves. The Defence Forces welcomes and respects all, irrespective of gender, creed, ethnicity or sexual orientation.”Last year, we also took a look at how the Defence Forces is using Oculus Rift to replicate hostile scenarios that members face overseas: Source: TheJournal.ie/YouTubeRead: Looking for a job?

You came in, as you normally do, you are like a donkey at the last fence.The Leas-Ceann Comhairle Pat the Cope Gallagher interjected, stating: “Minister”. He called on him to use parliamentary language. Ross said: “She upset the whole apple cart.”At this point, Fianna Fáil’s transport spokesperson, Robert Troy said: “That is disgraceful.”Munster accused Ross of getting personal, and accused him of being incompetent.“If he wants to get personal to mask his incompetence that is fine. I can take it,” she said, adding:He is a disgrace.The debate continued, with the Leas Ceann Comhairle telling the minister to “forget about the word donkey”.‘An analogy’The minister explained that “it was just an analogy… made by her colleagues and, as is so typical, she came in and ruined the debate”.While the Leas Ceann Comhairle acknowledged that, he added that “it does not sound good”.Munster said the minister did not make any effort at all on the green card issue. However, Ross said that accusation was “simply untrue”.He said his department and the government have represented the case that the green card is unwelcome and “we do not want it”.“Of course we do not want it but it is an EU decision,” he added, stating: We take every opportunity we get to ask the EU to remove it. The Deputy comes in here and says nothing at all is being done. She is speaking from the basis of total ignorance.In a statement following today’s debate, Munster accused the minister of resorting to name-calling in the chamber. She called on the minister to apologise, stating:“I don’t think that this is an appropriate way for the minister to conduct himself. What message does this send out to other women who may have an interest in getting involved in politics? I believe that Minister Ross should apologise for his distasteful remarks.” They were mature, they were sensible and they were constructive. As I said, I thought what they were doing before the Deputy came in last night – and she was late again today – what they were doing was something very constructive. We could not agree to what they were doing because it was not in our power but they were representing their communities extraordinarily well.

first_img News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more The first report of a large, international clinical trial shows that, for men who show signs of prostate cancer after surgical removal of their prostates, extending radiation therapy to the pelvic lymph nodes combined with adding short-term hormone therapy to standard treatment can extend the amount of time before their cancer spreads. The findings, presented today at the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), were so encouraging —exceeding rigorous threshold criteria — that the results were released by the research team ahead of schedule.Men with prostate cancer who are initially treated with prostatectomy — surgical removal of the prostate gland — often face signs of recurrence, usually signaled by a rise in the level of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in the blood. Radiation therapy to the region of the prior prostate surgery (surgical bed) is standard but only effective at keeping PSA low longer than five or more years in 60 to 70 percent of patients, said the study’s lead author, Alan Pollack, M.D., Ph.D., Chair of radiation oncology at the University of Miami and deputy director of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.While a rise in PSA after prostatectomy signals that the cancer is still present, it does not indicate where the cancer is located.  The NRG Oncology/RTOG 0534 SPORRT clinical trial is the first randomized trial to show that radiation therapy to treat the pelvic lymph nodes in addition to standard prostate bed results in significant incremental gains for these patients.“We looked specifically at men with prostate cancer who began to show signs that the cancer was not completely eradicated after prostatectomy,” said Pollack. “Adding hormone therapy and pelvic lymph node treatment substantively increased the proportion of patients who remained free from disease progression, to the point that we could report the data after an early interim analysis. The degree of the effectiveness of the combination is surprising, but makes sense when you consider other more contemporary evidence using newer PET scanning methods showing that pelvic lymph node recurrences are more common than previously appreciated.”The SPPORT trial enrolled 1,792 men at centers in the U.S., Canada and Israel from 2008 to 2015. Eligible patients had persistently detectable or rising PSA levels and evidence that some cancer cells were left behind after prostatectomy in the prostate bed, pelvic lymph nodes or elsewhere in the body after prostatectomy. The median patient age was 64 years (range 39-84), most patients (87 percent) were Caucasian, and the men had generally favorable performance status aside from rising PSA.Patients in the SPPORT trial were randomly placed into three treatment groups: prostate bed radiation therapy (PBRT) alone, PBRT plus short-term androgen deprivation (hormone) therapy (STAD), and PBRT plus pelvic lymph node radiotherapy (PLNRT) plus STAD. Hormone therapy consisted of four-to-six months of androgen deprivation to reduce levels of testosterone, a driver of prostate cancer.The trial was designed to assess freedom from disease progression at five years following treatment. Findings from a scheduled interim analysis when 1,191 patients had been followed for five years triggered the early release of the findings, explained Pollack. “The level of significance reached at this point was considerable, making it unlikely that the results will change substantively with longer follow-up, although outcomes such as the rates of distant metastasis and survival require much more patient follow-up, ” he said. “Releasing the data at this juncture is important for physicians treating patients with a rising PSA following prostatectomy. The strategy of combining prostate bed and pelvic lymph node radiation therapy with short-term hormone therapy should be much more strongly considered in routine clinical practice than it is currently.”At five years following treatment, freedom-from-progression (FFP) rates in the interim analysis group were 71.7 percent for PBRT alone, 82.7 percent for PBRT+ADT and 89.1 percent for PLNRT+PBRT+ADT. The FFP rate was highest for the arm combining all three treatments (p<0.0001). Freedom from progression was defined as a PSA nadir of +2, clinical failure or death from any cause, and was nearly identical for across study groups.Rates of cancer spread were also significantly different between treatment arms. In all eligible patients followed for up to eight years, distant metastases were found in 45 patients in the PBRT-only arm, 38 patients in the PBRT+ADT arm and 25 patients in the PLNRT+PBRT+ADT arm. Distant metastasis rates were significantly lower following the three-treatment approach compared to PBRT alone (Hazard Ratio 0.52, 95% CI: 0.32-0.85) and compared to PBRT+ADT (HR 0.64, 95% CI: 0.39-1.06).“While it’s common practice to treat the lymph nodes in men with higher-risk prostate cancer treated without prostatectomy first), this study is the most convincing level-I evidence to demonstrate a benefit,” noted  Pollack. “To be seeing differences in distant metastasis with relatively short follow-up speaks to the robustness of the impact, suggesting that the results will be sustained with longer follow-up.”Another key finding of the SPPORT trial is that short term hormone therapy (also called androgen deprivation therapy or ADT) is a key component of the management of patients with signs of recurrence after prostatectomy. SPPORT is only the second trial to look specifically at adding short-term hormone therapy to radiation for men following prostatectomy, added Pollack. “There is a lot of data showing a benefit from adding short-term hormone therapy in men whose prostate hasn’t been removed, though only one other randomized trial — GETUG 16 — has shown significant improvements after prostatectomy. Our study confirms that adding STAD to PBRT following surgery extends the time to progression.”Rates of severe side effects (grade three or higher using CTCAEv3.0) were low across treatment groups. During treatment, the main additional severe effects from PLNRT were in relation to blood/bone marrow events. For long-term effects, blood/bone marrow events were also slightly higher in the PLNRT arm, but only grade 2+ events (4.1 percent), not grade 3+ (1.1 percent).Additional analyses of the SPPORT trial will focus on the magnitude of difference between the experimental treatment arms to isolate the impact of pelvic lymph node treatment relative to androgen deprivation therapy. The research team also described preliminary data that for those with a very low PSA on study entry, there was no improvement from PLNRT+PBRT+STAD over PBRT+STAD;  although, this was an unplanned analysis.“It’s now a question of management, of whether a PSA threshold or other factors can be used to identify a patient group in which pelvic lymph node treatment is not as beneficial,” concluded Pollack. “Moreover, the role of newer PET tracers that identify pelvic lymph node involvement earlier in this decision process remains a key question. We still need more data, but we’ve taken a significant step forward with this study.”For more information: www.astro.orgRead more about the Late-breaking Radiation Therapy Clinical Trials at ASTRO 2018.

The FFP primary endpoint included PSA nadir+2, clinical failure, or death from any cause, with censoring for secondary salvage therapy initiated prior to these events. The sample size provided 90% statistical power to detect a 10% absolute FFP improvement at 5 yr in Arm 2 compared to Arm 1 and a 10% absolute improvement at 5 yr in Arm 3 compared to Arm 2 at an overall alpha level of 0.025. On the third planned interim analysis for efficacy and futility based on 1191 eligible patents with 5 yr minimum follow-up, the treatment arms were compared in a stepwise approach to determine if the Haybittle-Peto (HP) threshold boundary of p < 0.001 (one sided) was crossed. Futility evaluation tested the alternative hypotheses at p < 0.001. Adverse events were graded using CTCAEv3.0.Results: There were 1792 patients enrolled from 2008 – 2015. Median follow-up for those living is 5.4 yr. Ineligible patients included 18, 17, and 21 in Arms 1, 2, and 3. The patient and tumor characteristics for the 1736 eligible patients include a median age of 64 yr (range 39-84), black in 13%, baseline Zubrod status of 0 in 93%, seminal vesicle involvement in 15%, pre-radiotherapy PSA of ≤1.0 ng/ml in 89%, Gleason score < 8 in 83%, and pT2 margin positive or pT3 in 72%. Arms 1, 2, and 3 had 5 yr FFP rates of 71.1%, 82.7% and 89.1%. Arm 3 had the highest rate compared to Arm 1 (p < 0.0001), exceeding the HP boundary. The hazard ratio (HR) between arms 3 and 1 was 0.44 (95% CI: 0.32-0.59). Arm 3 was then compared to Arm 2, yielding a difference of 6.4% (p = 0.0063) and a HR of 0.71 (95% CI: 0.51-0.98). In all eligible patients followed for up to 8 years, there were 45, 38 and 25 patients who developed distant metastasis (DM) in Arms 1, 2 and 3. Without second salvage censoring, the DM hazard ratio for Arm 3 vs Arm 1 was 0.52 (95% CI: 0.32-0.85) and for Arm 3 vs. Arm 2 was 0.64 (95% CI: 0.39-1.06). With IMRT use in 87% of cases, highest late grade 3+ toxicity was observed in 4.3%, 4.9% and 6.0% for renal/genitourinary events and 0.7%, 0.4%, and 1.1% for gastrointestinal events in Arms 1, 2, and 3.Conclusion: This is the first report of the primary endpoint and is the first randomized trial to show significant incremental improvements in FFP going from PBRT only to PBRT+STAD to PLNRT+PBRT+STAD. The addition of PLNRT resulted in early, meaningful, reductions in failure. Follow-up of patients will further elucidate the magnitude of the differences between arms 2 and 3.

first_imgExpedia.com®, one of the world’s largest full service online travel sites, has released the results of the Expedia Passenger Preferences Index, a worldwide study that examines the preferences and behaviours of fliers on a country-by-country basis.The study was conducted on behalf of Expedia(R) by Northstar, a globally integrated strategic insights consulting firm and surveyed 11,026 travellers across 22 countries in Asia Pacific, Europe, North America and South America.Looking at the habits of Kiwi travellers, the study reported Kiwi fliers are among the most active in the world. Almost a third (31%) of Kiwis have flown more than five times in the past two years.This was above the global average of 27% and follows closely behind other APAC nations such as India, (38%), Singapore (36%) and China (35%). The most frequently flying nations were Norway (47%) and Mexico (42%).Expedia.co.nz travel expert, Kelly Cull, says: “Our study shows that Kiwis are after simple pleasures when flying and are content with a full belly and comfortable space when in the air”.Kiwis Prioritise Full Meals and Extra Leg RoomKiwi respondents were given a range of amenities to choose and asked to select the ones they would be willing to pay extra for on flights of different length, defined as 0-3 hours, 4-6, 7-12, 12+ hours.On a long-haul flight (7-12 hours), more than 6 in 10 Kiwis (62%) said they would be willing to pay extra for a full meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) over any other amenity.A seat with extra leg room was the second-most common selection, chosen by 44% of Kiwi respondents, followed by inflight entertainment (38%).Kiwis were also willing to pay out for inflight entertainment with its importance increasing as the duration of the flight increased (25% of medium-haul fliers, 38% of long-haul fliers and 39% of extra long-haul fliers).Globally, a full meal was consistently selected as the amenity fliers would be most likely to pay for across flight durations. Australia and Canada were consistently the top two nations most unwilling to pay for in-flight extras across different flight lengths.Eat, sleep and strike up a conversation – how Kiwis pass the time on a flightComfort comes first for Kiwis dressing for a flight – 91% of respondents said they dress for comfort and didn’t care how they looked, leaving only one in ten (9%) to choose chic planewear over comfort.When asked which strategies Kiwis would employ to endure a long haul flight over 10 hours, 80% of Kiwis indicated they would sleep to pass the time, followed by eating (71%), utilising inflight entertainment (69%) and reading (64%).Kiwis were the nation most intent on staying active on a long flight, with 51% saying they would walk around the cabin versus a global average of less than third (31%).Passenger Preferences Index respondents were also offered a long list of items and asked to select five that they felt they couldn’t live without on a flight. Worldwide, the top five items were water, a meal, a phone/mobile device, headphones and magazines or newspapers.Following suit, Kiwi respondents also rated water as the number one item they couldn’t live without when flying (58%), followed by a meal (40%), headphones (30%), phone/mobile device (29%) and a physical book (21%).For travellers from Mexico, South Korea and Thailand, a mobile device was considered more essential than water.Baggage Fees and Carousels AvoidedWhilst close to two thirds (64%) of Kiwi travellers say they avoid baggage fees at all costs, they were among the nations least likely to let excess baggage fees impact how they pack their bags and fell below the global average of 70%.The motivations behind not checking a bag included avoiding waiting at the baggage carousel (35%), not having to queue at check-in counters (33%) and fear the bag would be lost (25%).

first_imgTurkey expected to turn back the money tap on By Esra Aygin Amid a general conviction of Ankara’s role in the collapse of the former coalition and the formation of a new one, a high-level meeting among Turkish and Turkish Cypriot officials earlier this week raised expectations that the long-interrupted cash flow to the northern part of Cyprus will resume soon.Ersin Tatar and Kudret Ozersay of the new right-wing National Unity Party (UBP)–People’s Party (HP) coalition discussed economic and financial issues during meetings with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Vice-President Fuat Oktay and Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Istanbul on Monday. Speaking to the Turkish Cypriot media on his return, Ozersay stated that they discussed formulas to resume the flow of funds that was interrupted “due to various reasons”.“We believe that the flow of funds will begin soon,” he added. Turkish Cypriot media reported that an initial 288 million Turkish lira (about 45 million euros) would immediately be released.In an unprecedented funding freeze that was widely seen as blackmail from Ankara to put political pressure on the Turkish Cypriot officials, the previous four-party coalition, which collapsed last month amid financial starvation and internal discord, did not receive any cash injections during its 15-month rule.The coalition was made up of Republican Turkish Party (CTP), the Democratic Party (DP), the Communal Democracy Party (TDP) and Ozersay’s HP.The Turkish Cypriot administration is financially dependent on Turkey. In a controversial move that led to the resignation of five senior members from his party, HP’s Ozersay formed a new coalition with the nationalist conservative UBP earlier this month.Kudret Ozersay“The money flow from Turkey is the system or the biggest wheel of the system,” wrote journalist Ali Baturay in Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris earlier this week. “When that fails, everything comes to a deadlock… The interruption of money from Turkey confines the ruling parties in Cyprus to the deathbed. It is like locking up a creature without food and water and watching it die. In that sense the four-party coalition was locked up and expected to die…”The agreement between HP and UBP comes as no surprise to many who argue the collapse of the four-party coalition was orchestrated by Turkey in a bid to see in power parties aligned with her policies on the Cyprus problem and other issues.From left, Kudret Ozersay, Ersin Tatar, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Vice-President Fuat Oktay and Foreign Minister Mevlut CavusogluValidating speculation Tatar, who is heading the new coalition, has repeatedly referred to “harmony” with Turkey on economic and financial issues and the Cyprus problem. Tatar also pledged resumption of flow of funds from Turkey and said he sought “confirmation about Turkey’s support” after it was revealed that he visited the Turkish embassy in northern Nicosia the night before he submitted the composition of the new coalition to Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.Although the official explanation for the freeze was technical, Ozersay, shortly after the collapse, stated that the four-party coalition did not receive funds because it failed to reassure Ankara. In many statements that followed, Turkish Cypriot officials acknowledged discord between Ankara and the previous coalition.For example, TDP head Cemal Ozyigit, who was responsible for education policies, confessed he was on bad terms with Turkish officials because he refused their request to transfer the control of the Hala Sultan theological school to Ankara. Far-right Rebirth Party (YDP) leader Erhan Arikli said on television that Ankara did not like the way the four-party coalition was acting, while Tatar, when asked about the process that led to the new coalition, said he took advantage of the discord on Cyprus problem between the coalition and Ankara.“The system is built on maintaining good relations with Turkey and securing the money flow,” wrote journalist Baturay. “You have to behave, obey, do what you are asked to do and get the money. It is that simple. Now the UBP-HP coalition has taken over. The doors in Turkey, which were not open to the previous government, are now wide open for the new coalition.”In fact, besides their emphasis on economic and financial relations with Turkey, UBP and HP, in their coalition manifesto, have introduced a bold policy on the Cyprus problem.“The negotiation processes that have been going on for more than half a century have essentially shown that the federal partnership model, which is based on sharing power and wealth, has been exhausted and that under the current circumstances federation is not a realistic solution model,” reads the programme. “New and much more realistic and feasible ideas including two states within the EU, should come to the table.”Ersin TatarDuring a televised statement to mark Ramadan Bayram earlier this week, Turkish Cypriot leader Akinci also commented on the new coalition and its policies on Cyprus.“In the previous days, a government was toppled and a new one was formed in front of our eyes,” stated Akinci. “I do not need to tell you why things happened as they did. I am sure that with your common sense, you can understand what is going on…  Saying ‘Federal solution has been exhausted and the day for two separate sovereign states within the EU has arrived’ and thinking that this is a realistic model, is unfortunately beyond fantasy. It is not being honest with the people… As long as I am in this in this office, I have no intention of allowing this.”Analysts believe that Ozersay’s main objective is to challenge Akinci in the April 2020 elections and become the next Turkish Cypriot leader.In response to media reports that during coalition negotiations the UBP promised support to Ozersay, Tatar told daily Kibris that the UBP would have its own candidate in the first round but would support Ozersay in the second round.Regardless of whether the UBP supports him or not, Ozersay – who entered politics with promises of fighting corruption and promoting transparency – seems to currently be losing blood as he comes under fire from his own base for partnering up with UBP.The UBP was founded in 1975 by the late Rauf Denktash and is often viewed as the creator and guardian of the corrupt system in the northern part of Cyprus.In discussions on social media, HP members and supporters accuse Ozersay of betraying his own values and past for the sake of remaining in power.You May LikeDr. Marty3 Warning Signs Your Dog Is Crying For HelpDr. MartyUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
