DAWSON CREEK, B.C. — Aspiring professional chef and Dawson Creek resident Jen Jenkins is sadly out of contention for the title of Masterchef Canada, after she was eliminated on last night’s episode.Jenkins first cracked the Top 12 during the show’s season premiere in April. The 28-year-old stay-at-home mom had managed to make the Top 7 of the show’s competition, which featured the return of contestant Kaegan Donnelly from Vancouver after he won a redemption challenge. The eight amateur chefs were split into two teams to create a three-course tasting menu inspired by the Group of Seven for seven Order of Canada recipients. Sadly, the Red Team ended up rallying after nearly falling apart to beat Jenkins’ team in the challenge, meaning the team’s four members now had to stave off elimination. The four had to compete in the Pressure Test / Replication Challenge, which involved replicating oysters prepared three different ways. The first was a Japanese-inspired sake poached oyster with Asian pear slaw and shelled lobster claw. The second was a raw oyster topped with mignonette sauce, champagne jelly, and red tobiko, and the third was an oyster Rockefeller with béchamel spinach purée, sautéed oyster mushrooms with panko crumbs. Marissa Leon-John ended up winning an impromptu oyster-shucking contest, meaning Jenkins was up against Donnelly and Beccy Stables in the final challenge, which she sadly lost. Despite being eliminated from the show, Jenkins’ future in the culinary industry looks incredibly promising. Jenkins and her family will be moving to Ontario later this year after she was accepted to the Stratford Chefs School. Jenkins said that she’ll begin her studies next fall, with the goal of achieving her dream of being paid to do what she loves: cook delicious food.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced plans today to reassign two key military posts involving United Nations peacekeeping operations in Liberia and in India and Pakistan.Mr. Ban has informed the Security Council of his intention to appoint Lieutenant General A.T.M. Zahirul Alam of Bangladesh as Force Commander for the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).Lt.-Gen.

Découverte d’une galaxie naine “préservée” dans notre voisinageLa galaxie naine Leo P vient d’être découverte à une distance de 5 à 6 millions d’années-lumière de la Voie Lactée. Malgré cette proximité, Leo P semble ne pas avoir été perturbée par son imposante voisine. Comme il est rare que les galaxies naines ne soient pas transformées par une force gravitationnelle extérieure, les chercheurs espèrent que cette nouvelle découverte livrera les secrets des plus petites galaxies. C’est un peu comme si, à force de scruter le monde avec une longue-vue, on finissait par ne plus voir les objets les plus proches. Alors que le télescope Hubble découvre des galaxies toujours plus anciennes et lointaines, une équipe du département d’astronomie de l’université de l’Indiana a mis au jour une galaxie voisine de la Voie Lactée. Située à « seulement » cinq à six millions d’années-lumière de notre galaxie, Leo P était restée jusque-là incognito. Selon l’article scientifique publié le 30 avril dans The Astronomical Journal, Leo P est une galaxie naine qui n’a que très peu, voire jamais, interagi avec ses congénères. La présence de galaxies massives comme la Voie Lactée ou Andromède fait d’habitude s’agglutiner autour d’elles des galaxies de plus petites tailles.Plantée au milieu de nulle part”Il y a eu une augmentation massive du nombre de ces galaxies proches de nous, explique au Scientific American Alan McConnachie de l’institut Herzberg d’Astrophysique. Mais il y a vraiment très très peu de découvertes de galaxies naines plantées au milieu de nulle part.” Cet isolement a gardé Leo P à l’abri de la force gravitationnelle de ses imposants voisins.”Cette galaxie est le produit d’un environnement calme, décrit Riccardo Giovanelli de l’Université de Cornell, éloigné des galaxies majeures.” Son équipe a d’abord pris Leo P pour un nuage d’hydrogène, avant de découvrir sa vraie nature grâce aux télescopes optiques de l’observatoire National Kitt Peak en Arizona. Les chercheurs estiment que cette galaxie comporte des centaines de milliers d’étoiles, contre des centaines de milliards pour la Voie Lactée.Des naines martyrisées”Les galaxies naines sont très sensibles à ce qui se passe autour d’elles, poursuit Alan McConnachie. Elles se font harceler, déchirer et dépouiller de leur gaz. Les petits et les grandes galaxies ont en quelque sorte une histoire en commun. Hélas, toutes les naines que nous observons ont été trop chamboulées pour pouvoir nous renseigner sur leurs propriétés intrinsèques.”On espère donc que la découverte de Leo P va enfin permettre d’étudier ce genre de galaxies.

REJOINDERBelow is an article written by the Banjul City Council in response to remarks made by Hon. Alagie Sillah National Assembly Member for Banjul North. The remarks were made in an article published by Foroyaa under the caption KMC Spends over D500,000 at every ‘Set Setal’ in Issue No. 84/2016.POINT OF CORRECTION IN RESPECT OF REMARKS MADE BY HON. ALAGIE SILLAH NATIONAL ASSEMBLY MEMBER FOR BANJUL NORTH DURING THE PRESENTATION OF THE REPORT BY THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY SELECT COMMITTEE (22nd -26 June, 2016) ON THE ENVIRONMENTIt has come to the attention of the Banjul City Council (BCC) relative to the Foroyaa publication dated Friday 7th to Sunday 9th October 2016 regarding the contributions of Hon. Alagie Sillah National Assembly Member for Banjul North.It is of concern to Council that waste under its jurisdiction is frequently collected and a twice weekly routine of systematic collection takes place in each street in the City of Banjul unless and until otherwise which is to say that unforeseen circumstances affects the collection.As small as Banjul is, waste cannot be left unattended or uncollected for a longer duration particularly when it is claimed that waste is been kept in compounds for 2 or 3 months. For the records, it is grossly misleading and incorrect for Hon. Alagie Sillah NAM for Banjul North to allege that his waste was not collected for duration of seven months.The biggest revenue generated and realized by BCC is plunged into the Cleansing Services in its attempts to ensure that Banjul is maintained clean and therefore refuse/waste is collected accordingly.It would be more realistic and appropriate if such allegation is followed by channeling concerns to the authority as a National Assembly Member within the City and stakeholder for that matter. Council is of the view that statements must be backed/supported by facts and not mere speculation. We call on Hon. Sillah to act accordingly and avoid speculations which is not a healthy medium for a development oriented representative particularly during this crucial period.It is deemed significant and relevant to be just with issues and not to rely on assumptions and deviate from incorrectly saying that waste was uncollected for seven months.As a native Banjulian of the area with the Deputy Mayor residing in the concerned area, it would have been appreciated to bring to the attention of the council the alleged issue as a national Assembly Member answerable to a party and a citizen of Banjul.Council wish to reiterate that it had never occurred in the City of Banjul for waste to be left uncollected for seven months. Waste is frequently collected on a street by street basis routinely twice weekly in each street unless otherwise.We solicit from the General Public to continue referring any report to the offices of the Chief Executive Officer and Clerk of Council and the Cleansing Service Manager of uncollected waste in any given street or locality.Chief Executive OfficerBanjul City CouncilEDITOR’S NOTEForoyaa will investigate the facts on the ground and inform the readers accordingly.
Chelsea assistant coach Gianfranco Zola hopes Eden Hazard will be sticking around for quite some time yet after his superb cameo against BournemouthAfter coming on as a second-half substitute, Hazard scored a late winner for Chelsea to secure them a 1-0 Carabao Cup win against Bournemouth and a spot in the semi-finals.The Belgian winger has now provided Chelsea with six assists and two goals in his last five appearances.And Zola is keeping his fingers crossed that Hazard will opt to remain at Stamford Bridge rather than seek a move to the likes of Real Madrid.“He is certainly one of the players who has given this club a lot of satisfaction,” Zola told the club website.“Considering he is only 27, hopefully he will stay longer with us and become even bigger.Premier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“I am really looking forward to seeing Eden achieving great things with the club, and to help us coaches achieve something important.”The Italian also praised fellow substitute Pedro, who’s back-heel gave Hazard the opportunity to score the match-winner for Chelsea in a difficult game.“It was a very tough game. Bournemouth are a very good team. The coaches they have do an excellent job. They gave us a really hard time,” added Zola.“We started very well in the first 20, 25 minutes, but they didn’t concede much. They closed down all the spaces well, and in the end they got stronger and stronger.“I thought the difference was the changes we made. When Pedro and Eden came on it really gave us an extra gear. We got the goal that made the difference.”Chelsea will take on London rivals Tottenham for the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup with the first leg taking place on January 7 at Wembley.
Ace magician PC Sorcar Junior’s youngest daughter, Mumtaz, who has appeared in 30 films in seven years, is a boxing freak. In fact, it is her love for this sport which has her pretty excited about her big release Guru. Another film scheduled to hit the theatres this May is a Bengali feature, Raktakarabi, based on Rabindranath Tagore’s dance drama. Mumtaz, who loves cooking and dancing when she is not shooting, is also working for two new Tamil films this year and says that she is now ready take up more roles in Bollywood. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfMumtaz, tell us about your first big release of 2017, Guru…. My first big release this year will be Guru, the Telugu remake of a hit Tamil film directed by Sudha Kongara, Irudhi Suttru. The Hindi version was the critically acclaimed Saala Khadoos. Guru is the story of two women boxers who are in fact sisters and the changing dynamics of their relationship. The coach is played by Venkatesh. The sisters come from a poor family and their father is a fishmonger. I’m playing the elder daughter, who gets into boxing because she wants to land a job in the Police force to support her family. The younger one is a natural wrestler and under a good coach, who even lands the World Cup. At one point, sibling rivalry separates the duo but they come together again. I am into boxing and so I could play the part since the whole film is about professional boxers. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveYou also have a big Bengali film to be released this year, Raktakarabi…. Yes, for the first time, Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Raktakarabi’ will see a celluloid version. I play the role of Nandini but then it is a modern interpretation. The central character Nandini is a revolutionary, just as Tagore had conceived her but the times have changed. Raktakarabi is a political film, a reflection of our times. Bishu Pagol has been assayed by Kaushik Sen in Raktakarabi and the musical score has been done by Debojyoti Mishra. Raktakarabi’s most celebrated stage version was Bohurupee’s 1954 production, with lead characters played by the legendary Sambhu Mitra and Tripti Mitra. This is your second Amitava Bhattacharya film….Yes, last year, I assayed the very difficult role of Chitrangada in Bhattacharya’s maiden film, titled Conditions Apply. That film was based on the life story of Chitrangada, a eunuch whose true identity gets exposed and how society treats her after they get to know that she is not a woman. Chitrangada connects with herself but goes through a period of deep turmoil. In a way it is the most difficult role that I have assayed till date. The film was meant for the festival circuit. On Bollywood…There are offers. Recently, there was an offer for a commercial film but I wasn’t ready at that time. I wanted to be sure, to work on myself first. Now that I’m better than what I was and have some acting experience of working in different cities, I’ve matured as a human being. Most of these regional films gave me new units and different languages to deal with. I was the only Bengali there and I thought people expected something from me, as the representative of Bengali cinema. I’m now ready for Mumbai. You are known to be a workout addict, how do you relax?Right now, I’m taking physiotherapy because of a small back injury which I got while working for Saala Khadoos though I never stopped acting. At the moment, I’m not working out fervently. Otherwise, I exercise everyday under the guidance of coach Ranodeep Maitra. As for relaxing, we are one big happy family and we have a lot of fun when all of us – especially the three sisters – are together. We all have different careers and are busy during the whole day, but we usually get together for dinner and exchange notes. I also love cooking and my bakes are pretty famous in the family circuit. Plus, we have three pets – two Mastiffs and a stray one – who I adore.

2018 Olympics many South Koreans felt that the first Winter Games on home snow would herald their entry into the top tier of rich nations Top News When Pyeongchang was awarded the 2018 Olympics six years ago many South Koreans felt that the first Winter Games on home snow would herald their entry into the top tier of rich nations One year before the Olympics however the country is in political disarray and winter sports are the last thing on many people’s minds To say that South Koreans are distracted from what had been billed as a crowning sports achievement is an understatement After protests that saw millions take to the streets South Korea’s president toppled from power languishes in her mountainside palace as a court ponders whether to approve her impeachment and trigger early elections A toothless prime minister thrust into leadership by the country’s biggest corruption scandal in recent memory struggles with huge economic social and diplomatic tensions And then there’s rival North Korea which relishes the chance to insert itself into the picture _ often with missile tests and threats of annihilation _ whenever global attention turns to its southern rival This is not the atmosphere jubilant organizers thought they’d face when Pyeongchang an alpine ski resort town of 43000 people about 180 kilometers (110 miles) east of Seoul closed in on its moment of glory Despite the political turmoil the Pyeongchang Olympics will likely be well-organized and ready to go especially when compared with the recent games in Rio de Janeiro and Sochi Russia which saw swirling human rights environmental and political crises Still the upheaval in government will likely dominate headlines throughout the year and add to worries about Pyeongchang’s preparations enormous costs and a lack of public buzz A look at some of the major issues facing the country and the state of its Olympic dreams a year ahead of the Pyeongchang Games which are set for Feb 9-25 2018: “AN ADVANCED NATION” Even with the political mess there are still high hopes for the second Olympics to be held in South Korea whose capital Seoul hosted the 1988 Summer Games South Korea used the Seoul Olympics to highlight its economic rise from the rubble of the 1950-53 Korean War The country has since staged two Asian Games co-hosted the soccer World Cup in 2002 with Japan and held other high-profile international events including the 2010 Group of 20 economic summit “The Winter Olympics will let us show that we have reached the level of an advanced nation” said Choi Kwang-shik a former minister of culture sports and tourism who teaches at Korea University Pyeongchang supporters say the 2018 Games will boost South Korea’s image because only advanced rich countries usually host Winter Olympics Critics however question the need to host costly international events and waste taxpayers’ money when many South Koreans are struggling economically SCANDAL The Pyeongchang Olympics like much else in South Korea have been drawn into the country’s biggest political scandal in decades Prosecutors say President Park Geun-hye and her longtime friend Choi Soon-sil plotted to pressure businesses to donate tens of millions of dollars to two nonprofit foundations controlled by Choi one of them sports-related As investigations widened over the scandal officials arrested and indicted several top sports and culture ministry officials including Cho Yoon-sun who resigned as minister after her arrest Media have speculated that a jailed senior sports official aided Choi _ who is jailed and currently on trial _ in alleged attempts to land Olympic construction deals Lee Hee-beom head of the Pyeongchang organizing committee told reporters recently that comprehensive reviews of all Olympic-related contracts found that none has been found “contaminated” Some of the companies implicated in the political scandal were reluctant to sponsor the Olympics according to local media reports Still organizers say they collected about 90 percent of their domestic sponsorship target of 940 billion won ($826 million) by the end of last year COSTS VENUE CONSTRUCTION Spending for the Pyeongchang Games will likely be about 142 trillion won ($124 billion) with 114 trillion ($10 billion) of that for building competition venues roads and a new high-speed rail line designed to link the country’s main gateway of Incheon International Airport with Pyeongchang in about 90 minutes Organizers say the infrastructure will help promote Gangwon province which governs Pyeongchang and shares a border with North Korea The goal is to use the Olympics to turn the region into a new Asian hub for winter sports There have been worries about construction delays Organizers say the main Olympic stadium where the opening and closing ceremonies will be held is about 40 percent complete They promise completion by September They also say the construction of the 12 competition venues is about 96

A series of test events that began in November will continue until April Among them are the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships and the Ski Jumping World Cup both this month NORTH KOREA North Korea’s participation in the 2018 Games would certainly bring attention Pyeongchang was partially sold to the world as a way to perhaps prod North Korea into reaching out more to the international community But nothing is ever easy between the rival Koreas The North boycotted the 1986 Asian Games and the 1988 Olympics both held in Seoul Then it attended South Korea-hosted events in recent years including the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon Athletes from the two Koreas also marched together in the opening ceremonies of several major international sports events including the 2000 and 2004 Olympics Current ties between the Koreas are extremely bad after Pyongyang conducted two nuclear weapons tests last year Analysts say the North’s participation at Pyeongchang will likely hinge on what kind of

"people who wait with open swords and want him to make mistakes" Facing the heat after a run of defeats and for his own poor form with the bat Dhoni scored a match-winning 86-ball 92 in the second match on Wednesday to guide India to a 22-run victory and level the ODI series 1-1 "It is not an easy game that we play a lot of people wait with open swords and want you to make mistakes and have fun with it" Dhoni said after India bowled out South Africa for 225 in 434 overs in a chase of 248 MS Dhoni praised his team’s overall effort as India levelled the series 1-1 AFP "It was a good game for us There were a few soft dismissals and we didn’t score something which was par on this wicket We didn’t start well with our bowling but our spinners did well and gave us the breakthrough and later the pacers also came into action and gave us those wickets which was needed at that point of time "So overall I would not say it was a complete game because definitely we can play much better with our skills but it is good to win games" he added Dhoni made it clear he was not completely happy with the performance of his team but said it was good to win after a series of losses "It is not every time you lose in home conditions Yes we didn’t play to our full capacity we are not even 80 per cent of what we can so overall it was a good team performance As a batting unit we may not have scored something which we could have defended but the bowlers showed that we are able to defend that" Asked if he was tensed when No 9 K Rabada was batting Dhoni said: "It is always difficult when lower order batters are batting We knew we needed two good deliveries and a bit of luck too We had to play to our self strategy I wont say that the game was in our hand but we had a chance if we could bowl at the right areas and I feel the bowlers did that" Talking about his performance Dhoni said: You always want to play well for your country but not always things goes your way "In the last 2-3 years it’s the top order major work for us they loads of runs That means the middle and lower order batsmen get to bat after 35 overs We do crib about the fact that we are not good enough to go for big shot straight away That is something we have to improve Someone has to do it It is fact but sometimes you have to do the dirty job It has been a good 2-3 years with few ups and downs But overall as a team we have done well" PTI London: A seventh man was on Monday arrested by British police’s counter-terrorism officers in connection with the bomb attack on a London underground train that injured 30 people earlier this month The 20-year old man was arrested at an address in Cardiff Wales early on Monday morning under Section 41 of the UK’s Terrorism Act Representational image Reuters He has been taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody Scotland Yard said in a statement The arrests were carried out by officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter-Terrorism Command supported by colleagues from the Welsh Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit (WECTU) and South Wales Police Officers are also carrying out a search at an address in Cardiff as part of the ongoing investigation into the attack at Parsons Green station in London on 15 September which injured 30 people It was Britain’s fifth major militant attack so far this year "So far seven people have been

our parts “no war” is considered a cowardly thing Related News As Prime Minister Narendra Modi delays peace talks with Pakistan and the LoC heats up another meeting of SAARC looms this month barring South Asian leaders from talking war and persuading them to focus on the more modern concept of “connectivity” Modi is the man of “connectivity” when he is not being warlike and knows more about it than Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who thinks connectivity with India is the way to go for Pakistan Connectivity is another way of saying “no war” but in our parts “no war” is considered a cowardly thing Today the world thinks if two warrior states become interdependent they will find it hard to go to war Connectivity is achieved through free trade and you need roads to get your goods across borders If Pakistan is sensitive to self-interest it should truly exploit the “edge” of strategic physical location that makes neighbours interdependent with it That edge is called transit trade and Pakistan and Afghanistan have that advantage Pakistani-American scholar Mahnaz Z Ispahani wrote in her seminal book on the issue of routes and anti-routes Roads and Rivals: The Politics of Access in the Borderlands of Asia (1989) and remains the best source on South Asia’s attitudes towards “regional connectivity” She concluded that roads were essential to a country’s internal cohesion; cross-border roads tended to be seen as breaching security and imposing cohesion where it was not required by states before they could reconcile with each other as friendly states There were states that sought access and there were others that denied access and established anti-routes Borders were the first natural anti-routes At the risk of committing heresy in Pakistan I will repeat the well-worn adage: nothing destroys frontiers as free trade As Ispahani predicted the “anti-route stage” has passed Warriors don’t like trade because it prevents war In Pakistan the Pakistan army decides how to make Pakistan secure Security today is mostly seen as an economic attribute but Pakistan’s agenda is not overtly economic no matter that two political parties serially ruling the country have come to grief pushing free trade with India Is “connectivity” a leveraging instrument for the transit state if it is denied to neighbours or does it start leveraging after you have allowed it Pakistan thinks denying “connectivity” makes it powerful; Afghanistan under Hamid Karzai thought on the same lines For some in Pakistan it is not trade-first but Kashmir-first Cross-border trade has its problems however A report in Dawn says: “As the Indians seek permission to export over a million tonnes of wheat to Afghanistan through Pakistan’s land route the flour milling industry here is up in arms threatening protests and warning of the adverse impact that it would have on its business” After reckoning that the ever-looming war will likely never allow transit through Pakistan India has developed an alternative route through Iran and can send its goods to Afghanistan and Central Asia on the Chabahar port route but the preference for the shorter Pakistani route is understandable The flour-millers of Pakistan who export to Afghanistan have raised an issue that India and Pakistan have to resolve if they choose to “normalise” through trade Pakistan has to ensure regular passage and India has to rationalise its hidden and not-so-hidden subsidies to the agricultural sector Pakistan has learned its bitter lessons after stopping the Nato supply in a fit of military dudgeon which also stopped the Afghan transit trade alienating Afghanistan and causing curtailment of incomes in Pakistan Many Indians rightly think India has to sort out its tiff with the WTO on subsidies Things will move in the right direction sooner or later because war is no solution Free market becoming regional is also unavoidable which means India and Pakistan have to adjust their markets too Automobile and agricultural lobbies in Pakistan resist free trade with India which means India has to recalibrate subsidies or compensate Pakistan; and Pakistan has to finally allow Pakistanis to buy cheaper cars from India — or Indian cars made in Pakistan — and allow capitalism’s “creative destruction” of its protected sectors Pakistan’s “security” concerns are not greatly aroused by the north-south trade corridor it is building with China mainly because it is seen as a move against India and in the larger global perspective against the US China has the money and the road-building technology and Pakistan needs infrastructure to allow its economy to expand Earlier Pakistan stubbed its toe on the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline because of the new global cold war and Iran’s perceived aggression by Pakistan’s other friends Like China Iran had the money and the pipe-laying expertise It is hard to believe that a similar pipeline from Turkmenistan will go through Pakistan to India any time soon when Afghanistan is about to tilt into its next bout of civil war Starting late China has already taken the Turkmen gas through a 1000-mile pipeline to its western provinces Ironies abound in our parts Afghanistan whose warlords think only of war is being ruled by an ex-World Bank economist who will plump for trade even if he sees Pakistan wedded to its India-centrism in foreign policy But Nato helicopters earlier this month crossed into Pakistan’s Khyber tribal agency as Afghan officials complained of Pakistani interference in Afghanistan Unfortunately many non-state actors in Pakistan run their own foreign policy as was signalled by Iran’s cross-border assault in October on Pakistan’s western frontier because Pakistan-based Jandullah does mischief inside Iran and another banned outfit called Lashkar-e-Jhangvi kills Pakistani Shias going to Iran Pakistan is more used to being the spoiler but China’s pragmatism might dissuade it from thinking war while its economy is in a nosedive An enlightened ex-foreign secretary of Pakistan Riaz Mohammad Khan refuses to think of Afghanistan as a potential Indian base for a strategic “encirclement” of Pakistan He wrote in a recent paper about the Pakistani posture of using its geostrategic importance to thwart regional trade by linking it to Kashmir: “A case can be made that Pakistan should fully exploit [its] negative potential to serve its interests This is a self-negating argument as has been obvious from Pakistan’s experience with the Afghan conflict and extremist militancy… There is a similar parallel in the self-inflicted harm caused by defining national identity in quasi-ideological and narrow nationalistic terms by placing Pakistan in an antithetical juxtaposition with India There is need for a clear and constructive narrative on several fundamentals including national identity the challenges we face and national aspirations that must resonate with present-day imperatives of progress modernity and welfare of the people” Prime Minister Modi should take a close look at Pakistan’s new “revisionism” of old policies and not seek to appease “justified” public outrage in India over cross-border acts of terror by Pakistani proxies by acting tough on the LoC In the long run it is his thinking of frontloading strategy with trade which will

directory for the 2017-18 season Last July the 28-year-old Briton expressed concern over the lack of regular drug testing in golf compared with other Olympic sports and advocated the introduction of blood testing The PGA tour said on Tuesday that urine tests would still make up a bulk of examinations but blood screening would be introduced to detect human growth hormone Policies regarding player suspensions for illegal drugs use will also be made more transparent “If we’re not blood testing we’re not doing all we can to make sure that golf is a clean sport so I obviously welcome the news” McIlroy was quoted as saying by the Daily Telegraph ahead of Thursday’s first round of the Travelers Championship “If golf wants to be a sport in the Olympics it needs to get on board with everything that all the other sports do as well “I really don’t think anyone should be fearful as I don’t think that golf has any sort of drug problem at all You have to be so careful about what you take but

“Startup India” action plan at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi (PTI Photo) Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi has just launched the Start-up India scheme first alluded to on Independence Day last year In the interim five months the aspiration the reality and the stretch goal of this initiative have been coming into focus First the aspiration As several entrepreneurs said at the event we should take it upon ourselves to imagine and implement solutions to our own problems Who better to look to for insight than those living with the issues Of course there’s no point reinventing the wheel Wherever similar problems have been identified and partly solved elsewhere we should unabashedly borrow solutions giving credit where it is due Part of the aspiration also as MoS for finance Jayant Sinha reminds us is that there is a real opportunity here for Indian entrepreneurs to provide solutions to the developing world much as the United States has provided solutions for the developed world This aspiration makes eminent sense After all mobile money solutions from East Africa and low-cost medical diagnostics from India have speedily disseminated across the developing world already as ready proof-of-concept Of course every country is busy developing along its own path with idiosyncratic problems Nonetheless there is some commonality across the classes of problems For example the idea of innovating under scarcity and of ensuring access to the disenfranchised are generalised concerns across at least four of the world’s seven billion people Turn next to the reality Full marks are due to the PM for tapping into the enthusiasm of our youth They are the engines of entrepreneurship across India Beyond these celebratory exhortations we have already made incremental but solid progress on substantive policies Finance Minister Arun Jaitley just announced that the tax burden on start-ups would be simplified If one looks at numerous surveys on the web about the pet peeves of entrepreneurs foremost among these are the tax burden and the regulatory morass in which small companies must wallow This is enervating the kiss of death That the FM has responded is excellent news But we should also be mindful not just of those who are already entrepreneurs but those who aspire to be Their voices are unheard in these web surveys Think for example of the millions who benefit from microfinance today Some are capable of much more These would-be entrepreneurs would likely put capital scarcity high up on their list of problems as they would the difficulty of getting relevant skills to further realise their potential We should think of “start-up” and “stand-up” as applying to the broadest swathes of our society not just e-commerce and mobile apps as important as these are Still on the substantive reality it’s encouraging that policy machinery is coming into place Recently I had the honour of chairing the Expert Committee on Entrepreneurship and Innovation for the government of India As a consequence of the report we submitted a few months ago we now have a structure in place within NITI Aayog for the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) with appropriate governance to provide a forum to discuss issues and monitor policy progress The press and the public should hold us to account so that action survives much beyond today’s euphoria Finally the stretch goal All these policy initiatives will not amount to much if we don’t measure our progress What should we measure How aggressive should it be I’d suggest echoing my colleagues’ views in the AIM report I mentioned that we have some short-run and medium-run goals As an example in the short run I’d certainly like us to dramatically upgrade and expand our incubator ecosystem Why focus on this Because there is a foundation of effort and interest upon which we can build yet there is a lot of inefficiency in the system affording us the opportunity to make measurable progress There is much that can be done to link the incubators on the input side to the university and laboratory ecosystem and on the output side to corporates Another stretch goal for us is to get the government to adopt a bit of the start-up bug The PM appears to be inclined to think in that fashion perhaps he can excite others on his team to do the same In a start-up one adopts a risk-taking and experimenting attitude and one works as part of a team Both these dimensions should infect government machinery more than they currently do Risk-taking is not an attribute that is commonly heard in Delhi’s halls Since entrepreneurship is a team sport we need different policy initiatives of the government to work in concert rather than in silos — for example the AIM the financial inclusion policies of the finance ministry and the RBI the skill development attempts of that ministry and the ministry of science and technology’s efforts to upgrade the scientific infrastructure These are just a couple of examples of areas where we can stretch and measure Hopefully we can have a continued national conversation about this through the mechanisms set up by the AIM The key to a stretch goal is that it is sufficiently challenging so that it motivates us to work away at it but not so hopelessly ambitious that it ends up being discouraging to the rank and file So while the twitterati are agog with enthusiasm at the celebration I’m even more encouraged by the substantive progress towards fulfilling our aspirations The writer chaired the government’s Expert Committee on Entrepreneurship and
