Trump Distances Himself From Cryptocurrency

[Washington]Trump Distances Himself From Cryptocurrency Saying Cryptocurrency is ‘Not Money’
Donald J Trump expressed his mistrust of cryptocurrency Thursday, Tweeting
“I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air,”
He added that cryptocurrency, whose electronic nature makes it nearly untraceable, could facilitate illegal activity.
Cryptocurrency has flourished since Bitcoin launched in 2009. But when Facebook unveiled plans last month for its own virtual currency, Libra, the announcement rattled financial regulators the world over.
With more than two billion Facebook users, the social media giant’s cryptocurrency — which is slated for a 2020 launch and already has multiple partners — could completely disrupt the financial world.
But Trump said that Libra has “little standing or dependability.” He also warned Facebook and other companies that, should they launch their own cryptocurrency, they would have to abide by both American and international banking regulations.
“We only have one real currency in the USA, and it is stronger than ever,” he tweeted.
“It is called the United States Dollar!”

अमेरिका ने ग्रीन कार्ड पर लगी सीमा हटायी:भारतीय पेशेवरों को राहत

[वाशिंगटन]अमेरिका ने ग्रीन कार्ड पर लगी सीमा हटायी:भारतीय पेशेवरों को राहत
अमेरिकी सांसदों ने ग्रीन कार्ड जारी करने पर मौजूदा सात प्रतिशत की सीमा को हटाने के उद्देश्य से बुधवार को एक विधेयक पारित किया। इस विधेयक से भारत के हजारों उच्च कुशल आईटी पेशेवरों को लाभ मिलेगा।
ग्रीन कार्ड किसी व्यक्ति को अमेरिका में स्थायी रूप से रहने और काम करने की अनुमति देता है।
फेयरनेस ऑफ हाई स्किल्ड इमिग्रेंट्स एक्ट, 2019 या एचआर 1044 नाम का यह विधेयक 435 सदस्यीय सदन में 65 के मुकाबले 365 मतों से पारित हो गया।
नए विधेयक में इस सीमा को सात प्रतिशत से बढ़ाकर 15 प्रतिशत कर दिया गया है।
इसी तरह इसमें हर देश को रोजगार आधारित प्रवासी वीजा केवल सात प्रतिशत दिए जाने की सीमा को भी खत्म कर दिया गया है।
इस विधेयक को कानून की शक्ल लेने के लिए अमेरिका के राष्ट्रपति के हस्ताक्षर की जरुरत है लेकिन इससे पहले इसे सीनेट की मंजूरी की आवश्यकता होगी जहां रिपब्लिकन सांसदों की अच्छी-खासी संख्या है।

Modi Govt Desires To Remove Cong Prez From Jallianwala BaghTrust :LS

[New Delhi]Modi Govt Desires To Remove Cong Prez From Jallianwala Bagh
A bill which seeks to remove the Congress president as a permanent member in a trust that runs the Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial to make the body “apolitical” was introduced in Lok Sabha on Monday amid opposition by the Congress.
The Jallianwala Bagh National Memorial (amendment) Bill, moved by Culture Minister Prahlad Singh Patel states that it seeks to “delete” the mention of ‘President of the Indian National Congress’ as a trustee
A similar bill was brought by the previous government but it could not get parliamentary nod and lapsed.
Opposing the bill, Shashi Tharoor (Cong) said his party is opposed to the bill as it it is a “denial of heritage of the country”.
Hitting back, Patel said for the last 40-50 years, the Congress did nothing for the memorial. He said he would give a detailed response once the bill comes up for consideration and passage.
The amendment bill also paves way for the leader of the single largest opposition party in the Lok Sabha to be a member of the trust. As of now, only Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha is a member of the trust.
The amendment bill also confers power to the central government to terminate the term of a nominated trustee before the expiry of the term without assigning any reason.
As of now, the trust which manages the memorial, has the Prime Minister as the chairperson, President of Indian National Congress, Culture Minister, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Punjab governor, Punjab CM as its members.
Virendra Kataria, Ambika Soni and Harvendra Singh Hanspal are nominated trustees appointed in 2013 for five years, according to the Culture Ministry website.
Jallianwala Bagh memorial was established in 1951 by the central government to mark the massacre of unarmed people on April 13, 1919 by the British Indian Army under the command of Col Reginald Dyer.
