WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Pitcairn Island, a tiny speck in the Pacific that’s home to just 48 people, has passed a law allowing same-sex marriage — but has no gay couples wanting to wed.First settled in 1790, Pitcairn is a British Overseas Territory that has some legal autonomy and is often considered the world’s smallest country by population. Islanders are descended from the mutineers of the British navy vessel Bounty and their Tahitian companions. Sponsored Stories Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Pitcairn Deputy Governor Kevin Lynch said Monday the new law came into effect May 15 but initially wasn’t published online after the island’s website encountered some technical issues. He said the change was suggested by British authorities after England, Wales and Scotland legalized same-sex marriage last year. He said the law change was unanimously approved by the local council.Seventh-generation resident Meralda Warren said there haven’t been any same-sex marriages since the law passed and she doesn’t know of any gay couples wanting to wed. As with most law changes, she said, a notice was put up on the verandah of the town hall and a second at the island’s general store.“It’s not Pitcairn Islanders that were pushing for it,” she said. “But it’s like anything else in the world. It’s happening everywhere else, so why not?”She said it wasn’t even a point of discussion until the outside world began catching up on the news in the last few days.“I kind of cracked up when I saw the Google alert in my inbox,” she said. “I scanned down, and smiled again, and thought ‘We’ve kept that one quiet for a couple of months.’” Warren said she knew of just one islander who had identified as gay, and that was a long time ago. And she said any gay couples wanting to marry might have difficulty, as the island’s only preacher was a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a denomination which opposes gay marriage. She said the island administrator might be able to officiate.Rodney Croome, the national director of the same-sex advocacy group Australian Marriage Equality, said even if there are no gay couples currently living on Pitcairn, there could be some who had left the island who might be able to return and marry.“And assuming there’s not a residency requirement, I could imagine some couples from off the island might find it a romantic destination, including Australians who can’t marry in their own country.”Croome said the law change also sends an important message.“It shows how much the islanders value equality and inclusion,” he said. “It effectively says that gay islanders belong on Pitcairn Island as much as anyone else, and that’s a positive message.”Copyright © The Associated Press.

Cyprus filed another report at the UN protesting Turkish infringements of international air traffic regulations, violations of the national airspace and the illegal use of ports in the north by Turkish warships during last November 2017, it was reported on Saturday.In a letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Permanent Representative of Cyprus to the United Nations Kornelios Korneliou said Turkish commercial aircraft systematically use the illegal airport of Tymbou in the north.According to the Cyprus News Agency, the letter, accompanied by relevant documents, said that the regime in the occupied areas illegally issued seven notices to airmen relating to exercises conducted by the Turkish Air Force in November 2017.Korneliou also informed the UNSG that: “Turkey’s actions are clearly aimed at undermining the sovereignty of the Republic of Cyprus, bolstering the continuing de facto division and upgrading the secessionist entity’s status by claiming a purported airspace over the occupied territory of the Republic”.In addition, he said, Turkey continues to systematically harass civilian and military aircraft within the Nicosia flight information region (FIR) via radio calls.Meanwhile, he said, “Nicosia FIR infringements and violations of the national airspace of the Republic of Cyprus continue unabated. Turkey’s policy of persistently breaching international law and defying international rules and regulations puts the safety of international civil aviation at risk, has a negative impact on the stability of the region and causes difficulties for air traffic over Cyprus.“It should further be underlined”, he said, “that the continuation of Turkey’s illegal actions creates tension during a critical period for the successful outcome of the ongoing negotiation process for a peaceful comprehensive solution to the Cyprus problem.“On behalf of my Government, I strongly protest the continuing infringements of international air traffic regulations and the violations of the national airspace and territorial waters of the Republic of Cyprus by Turkey and appeal for their immediate cessation. The Republic of Cyprus reiterates, in this respect, its call for adherence to the principle of sovereignty and non-interference enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations,” Korneliou concluded.Cyprus has been divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

PM may be counting on the success he had in realising agricultural growth of 10 per cent per year in real terms as Gujarat CM Illustrations: C R Sasikumar Related News Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his “Mann ki Baat” broadcast on February 28 said he has a big exam the next day The budget is out Let us examine how the PM has performed The budget’s objectives are laudable but can these be achieved It is focused on agriculture with a target to double farm income in five years It is not clear if this is real income or nominal income Doubling real income in five years is a Herculean task With the measures outlined in the budget it may not be realisable The PM may be counting on the success he had in realising agricultural growth of 10 per cent per year in real terms as Gujarat CM Many analysts have argued that the building of more than 1 lakh water harvesting structures had a lot to do with it The goal to build 5 lakh ponds in rural areas through MGNREGA can push agricultural growth If along with this diversification expansion of agro-processing (for which rules have been relaxed to attract foreign firms) use of GM seeds and better connectivity through rural roads can significantly step up agricultural growth If this can achieve a growth rate of 10 per cent then with 5 per cent inflation a 15 per cent growth rate in nominal terms is achievable However to reach such a growth rate will take some time and doubling of farm income in the next five years may be difficult if not impossible The increased allocation for irrigation projects for the accelerated irrigation benefit programme (AIBP) and the target to complete 27 projects in a year reflect good intentions However the reality is that the area under surface irrigation has not increased — in fact it has gone down — over the last two decades despite the government spending lakhs of crores on irrigation projects This has happened because of political reasons including a race to claim the right on water by upstream states The budget also emphasised the welfare of the poor and those belonging to the lower middle class Some of the budget proposals may provide short-term relief From a long-term point of view providing quality education is vital The budget has proposed setting up 62 Navodaya Vidyalayas which have been successful in promoting quality education to rural children The budget also proposes funds to make 10 public and 10 private institutions as world-class centres for research A new Digital Literacy Mission Scheme for rural India has also been announced It can help improve the quality of government schools But a lot depends on how it is implemented Another announcement that can improve rural development is the devolution of Rs 80 lakh to each panchayat The outcome will depend on how democratically a panchayat functions One can be hopeful that in today’s world with high levels of education and access to social media reasonable outcomes can be expected over time As such it is a good measure to empower panchayats On the energy front the budget has not made any significant announcement for renewable energy other than raising tax on coal from Rs 200 to Rs 400 per tonne This amount is to be spent for promoting renewable energy In the past though the fund has not been used for this purpose The significantly adverse health impact of cooking with bio-fuels that result in indoor air pollution has also been recognised The government plans to provide LPG to all This was recommended in the report of the expert committee that I chaired on integrated energy policy in 2006

with their vast holdings of government paper,60,India is now the worst-performing market in the world. As someone who remembers what India was like before Dr Manmohan Singh introduced his economic reformsI read the story with growing alarm This sense of impending doom grew when I read that Pakistan had attracted more foreign investment in the past six months than India I found this especially disturbing because I remember that when I first went to Pakistan in the early eightiesit seemed like an economic powerhouse compared with India It had better roadsbetter airportsbetter cars and the average Pakistani seemed richer and better fed When our boom years beganas a direct consequence of the reformsPakistans political and military problems slowed it down and by the late ninetiesit was India that looked much better We may still have vast areas of poverty and horrible deprivation but we also have a huge middle class and on the whole India is more prosperous than it has ever been So why are foreign investors fleeing and why are Indian investors beginning to be wary about investing in their own country The simple answer to that question is this The Government of India appears to have been on auto-pilot since the Bihar results dimmed Rahul Gandhis prospects of becoming prime minister and since the corruption scandals started tumbling out of government closets When this happenedall three of the Congress Partys top leaders seemed to vanish The Congress Party is fortunate that our main Opposition party appears to be even more rudderless and adrift and exhibits an uncanny knack of always clutching on to the wrong issues A good example comes from last week when instead of expressing concern over the economic downturnthe leader of the Opposition went on national television to make a melodramatic fuss about the alleged bugging of the Finance Ministers office The BJPs role as our main Opposition party has been so unimpressive that it has been pushed out of the Opposition space by Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev Its pathetic efforts to jump on to Baba Ramdevs caravan made it look particularly silly What persuaded Sushma Swaraj to hotfoot it down to Baba Ramdevs ashram in Haridwar on the very day that he announced plans for an armed rebellion As for that business of dancing at Gandhijis Samadhiit was beyond belief With so much political nonsense going on in Delhiit is not surprising that foreign investors have stopped taking India seriously Our problems are not just to do with politics and corruption The economic failures of Dr Manmohan Singhs government are even more serious There have been no economic reforms to speak of since his second term began There has been almost no attention paid to the improvement of our ramshackle infrastructure and if there have been improvements in public healthcare and educationthey have been infinitesimal Had at least these things improvedthere may not have been the public rage against the government that Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev have managed to tap into Every Indian deals every day with some problem created by bad governance The rich suffer slightly less than the poor because the rich can afford to buy water and electricity from private sources and they can afford to pay the bribes needed to make administrative processes work faster Indians at the bottom of the economic ladder are ruthlessly squashed down as soon as they try to climb If they open shops on city pavementsthey are torn down If they try to rent a hovel in some slumthey are asked for proof of earlier residence If they try to learn how to drive in a city like Mumbaithey are asked to produce proof of identity It is this daily humiliation at the hands of insensitive officials that has caused vast numbers of ordinary Indians to support the movement against corruption If they are angry nowthey are going to get a lot angrier when the economy slows down and we go back to those pre-reform times when everything was in short supply all the time Would our economist prime minister like to explain why things have gone so badly wrong and what he plans to do to rectify them If ever there was a time for him to leadit is now Follow Tavleen on Twitter @ tavleen_singh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIf the trolls on Twitter had to pronounce a verdict on the only Vice-Presidential debate of the 2016 election cycle their reaction is likely to be: Yawn There was little to elevate the 90-minute exchange between Republican Mike Pence and Democrat Tim Kaine into the realm of reality entertainment That’s in contrast to the Presidential debate which was nasty But if there is derision for this debate it’s probably because American voters aren’t quite accustomed to an actual discussion instead of a byte-infused hate-fest At one point Kaine spoke about “dramatically expanding our intelligence capacities” and that phrase may well be applicable to this particular debate If the debaters at Hofstra University in New York Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump could barely disguise their loathing for each other the two participants at Longwood University in Virginia were unable to hide their mutual respect Tim Kaine and Mike Pence AP Of course both debaters constantly shoehorned talking points into their responses despite the question having little relevance to that Kaine focused on Trump’s tax returns and his foul-mouthed follies while Pence went at Clinton’s missing emails and a legacy that has left a world battered by terrorism You could argue that the actual winner of the debate was moderator Elaine Quijano of CBS News the first-ever Asian American to be art of the debate schedule as she overcame an initial issue with controlling interruptions to taking charge of the conversation and trying to keep the debaters honest or as forthright as a politician can be That’s always difficult as exemplified by Pence’s accusing the Clinton campaign of indulging in an “avalanche of insults” But at least Quijiano kept her questioning on point and even addressed Clinton’s emails and the Clinton Foundation matters that have been at the forefront of this year’s campaign but were curiously absent from the first Presidential debate As for Pence and Kaine they defended their positions adequately and almost managed to make positions taken by Trump and Clinton appear plausible It was also clear why they were chosen to be part of the ticket Kaine brings a centrist weight to a ticket that may have tilted too far to the left with Clinton having to pander to Bernie Sanders’ disaffected supporters and Pence brings in gravitas and executive experience that Trump lacks to make an understatement Though this was a honourable draw in terms of the participants at the table Pence may have been more effective in his presentation of Trump’s case than Kaine was in talking up Clinton CBS News’ focus group at the end of the debate was heavily tilted towards Pence even though the sample of 27 was nearly equally divided between Democrats and Republicans Part of the reason was that Pence came across as more mature at times dominant while Kaine seemed to concentrate on gotcha gambits and his childish chirping at the outset may have been offputting For Indians who have been obsessing with the tensions across the Line of Control in recent days there was the missing link – just as in the first Presidential debate it never made a ripple in the sea of topics many of which related to foreign policy and even to nuclear arms Vice-Presidential debates have little impact on how an election turns out Though as with Joe Biden in 2012 Pence managed to regain some ground for the ticket But as was mentioned earlier he and Kaine came across as reasonable men in a season where rancour has ruled One consolation for the American voters given their general distaste for the Presidential nominees is that regardless of who occupies the White House next adult supervision may just be a heartbeat away The bad news though is that there are still two Presidential debates remaining and we will hear far too much from Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump beginning this Sunday Written by Kanchan Vasdev | Chandigarh | Published: January 12 2016 3:19 am
