company Kapil Mishra has accused Kejriwal of taking bribe of Rs 2 cr PTI Mukesh Sharma a property dealer and tobacco trader said he had donated the money through a demand draft on 31 March2014 "The

Merkel visits China on Thursday seeking to close ranks with the world’s biggest exporting nation as US president Donald Trump shakes up explosive issues from trade to Iran’s nuclear deal Finding a common strategy to ward off a trade war and keep markets open will be Merkel’s priority when she meets with President Xi Jinping as Washington brandishes the threat of imposing punitive tariffs on aluminium and steel imports File image of German Chancellor Angela Merkel AP "Both countries are in agreement that open markets and rules-based world trade are necessary That’s the main focus of this trip" Merkel’s spokeswoman Martina Fietz said in Berlin on Friday But closing ranks with Beijing against Washington risks being complicated by Saturday’s deal between China and the US to hold off tit-for-tat trade measures China’s economic health can only benefit Germany as the Asian giant is a big buyer of Made in Germany But a deal between the US and China effectively leaves Berlin as the main target of Trump’s campaign against foreign imports that he claims harm US national security The US leader had already singled Germany out for criticism saying it had "taken advantage" of the US by spending less than Washington on NATO Underlining what is at stake French economy minister Bruno Le Maire warned the US-China deal may come "at the expense of Europe if Europe is not capable of showing a firm hand" 11 visits in 12 years Nevertheless Merkel can look to her carefully nurtured relationship with China over her 12 years as chancellor No Western leader has visited Beijing as often as Merkel who will be undertaking her eleventh trip to the country In China she is viewed not only as the main point of contact for Europe but crucially also as a reliable interlocutor – an antithesis of the mercurial Trump Devoting her weekly podcast to her visit Merkel stressed that Beijing and Berlin "are both committed to the rules of the WTO" (World Trade Organisation) and want to "strengthen multilateralism" But she also underlined that she will press home Germany’s longstanding quest for reciprocity in market access as well as the respect of intellectual property Ahead of her visit Beijing fired off a rare salvo of criticism China’s envoy to Germany Shi Mingde pointed to a "protectionist trend in Germany" as he complained about toughened rules protecting German companies from foreign takeovers Only 03 percent of foreign investors in Germany stem from China while German firms have put in 80 billion euros in the Asian giant over the last three decades he told Stuttgarter Nachrichten "Economic exchange cannot work as a one-way street" he warned Meanwhile looming over the battle on the trade front is another equally thorny issue – the historic Iran nuclear deal which risks falling apart after Trump pulled the US out Tehran has demanded that Europe keeps the deal going by continuing economic cooperation but the US has warned European firms of sanctions if they fail to pull out of Iran Merkel "hopes that China can help save the atomic deal that the US has unilaterally ditched" said Die Welt daily "Because only the giant emerging economy can buy enough raw materials from Iran to give the Mullah regime an incentive to at least officially continue to not build a nuclear weapon" Bring Liu Xia to Germany With Merkel needing China’s cooperation activists are hoping that human rights issues won’t fall by the wayside They have voiced hopes in particular that Merkel would raise the fate of Liu Xia the widow of Nobel Laureate Liu Xiaobo who is kept under de facto house arrest by China "Here’s hoping Merkel brings #LiuXia to Germany with her–#China would be smart to release the latter now" wrote Sophie Richardson China director of Human Rights Watch on Twitter Late April German ambassador to China Michael Clauss told the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post that Liu would be welcomed in his country Asked if Merkel would meet with activists her spokeswoman Fietz was non-committal but said "as a general rule the government and the chancellor campaign constantly for the question of human rights" All across North America patches of land are being taken over by the rigs roads and storage facilities of thousands of oil and gas drilling operations Now for the first time a study tallies up the land area they consume: 30000 square kilometers—an area equivalent to three Yellowstone National Parks “For all intents and purposes these are parking lots” says Brady Allred an ecologist at the University of Montana Missoula who led the study published online today in Science “The question is: How long are they going to stay this way” The authors acknowledge that there are benefits from the operations—namely energy—and also that the lost land is a small fraction of North America’s total area But they say the well sites are rarely remediated and replanted and so the cumulative impact could begin to take its toll through the degradation of animal habitats and the loss of plants which sop up carbon dioxide The study is a mash-up of two types of data Allred paid tens of thousands of dollars to private sources and state regulators to get the location of well sites The researchers found that since 1900 more than 2 million wells have been drilled and most of that has happened in two spurts—one beginning in the mid-1970s with the OPEC oil embargo and the other beginning in 2000 with the advent of directional drilling hydraulic fracturing and other techniques that make it easier to extract oil and gas from tight rock formations In the last decade they found industry has been sinking more than 50000 wells a year “Whenever we tell people there are 50000 wells being drilled per year they think we’re crazy” says co-author Steven Running a University of Montana ecologist “Nobody has any idea of the magnitude of this” Industry has drilled more than 2 million wells since 1900 The displaced productivity of

daughter will one day be old enough to read the news about herself. a police report obtained by The Washington Post would later state The desert sun was already pounding the parking lot asphalt hoisting the local temperature into the 90s The school’s K Building a blocky modern structure surrounded by a cracked horizon of mountains in the distance was stirring for early morning lectures Hefting a black briefcase Bird made his way to the building’s second floorHis choice was purposeful Bird would later tell police investigators It was a Tuesday the second day of the semester There likely would not be many students aroundStill Bird waited for the hallway to clear before entering a unisex bathroom He locked the door He taped a $100 bill and a note – "For the janitor" – to the mirror He placed three sealed letters on the counter He then pulled the gun from his case a recently purchased 22 Cobra Derringer It was a tiny two-shot pistol like something an Old West riverboat gambler would secret in a vest pocketFrom the bathroom a loud bang jolted the hallway witnesses would tell police A burning sensation crawling up his left arm ears screaming Bird popped out of the door blood gushing from his left forearm he said later Bystanders flocked to his side The smell of gunpowder drifted on the air Someone tried to stop the bleeding with paper towels from a nearby maintenance cart The panic button was punched Medics and police arrivedThe pain did not muzzle Bird In fact the words spilling from the professor had a pointed political edge As one witness told investigators Bird "started saying he’s protesting [President] Trump and that he shot himself because of that"Bird’s anti-Trump rhetoric would continue in his interviews with investigators Although the professor survived his injury he is now currently facing criminal charges stemming from the shooting including felony counts of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and discharging a gun in a prohibited area Court records indicate he has yet to enter a plea Bird who remains in custody has not publicly filled in the motivations behind the episode His attorney also did not return a call for comment But in his interviews with police as well as his writings left behind at the scene the professor cited concerns over the environment and gun control as factors throwing him over the edge The act places Bird among an extreme set of individuals who turn to public self-harm as an outlet for anxiety and anger over current eventsSuicide or self-harm linked to a larger political agenda goes back thousands of yearsMichael Biggs a University of Oxford sociologist defines "self-immolation" as "an individual intentionally killing himself or herself (or at least gambling with death) on behalf of a collective cause" He notes "an act of protest it is intended to be public in at least one of two senses: performed in a public place in view of other people or accompanied by a written letter addressed to political figures or to the general public"The act was literally burned into the wider American consciousness in the 1960s as Buddhist monks set themselves on fire to protest the South Vietnamese government Journalist David Halberstam memorably recounted an episode in June 1963 when monk Thich Quang Duc set himself ablaze in Saigon a sight that left the veteran correspondent "too shocked to cry too confused to take notes or ask questions too bewildered to even think"Biggs’s own researched documented "533 individual acts of self-immolation – including attempts which did not prove fatal – from 1963 to 2002"The Trump era – a time period as fraught with high-wattage divisiveness as the 1960s – has also seen public spectacles of self-immolation Last April New York City gay rights attorney David Buckel set himself on fire in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park A note found on the body stated he had taken his own life to protest environmental destruction The Post reportedSimilarly personal and political despair contributed to the July death of Mahmood Salem Accordingly to NBC News the Yemeni-American citizen was distraught when he learned his wife and two children would not be allowed back into the country due to the president’s controversial travel ban He committed suicide"I’ll say it’s the first and main reason Maybe there is other stuff but I could give it 90 percent" his brother told NBC "He cannot bring them here and at the same time he cannot take them back to Yemen because it’s war"In his interview with investigators from a hospital bed Bird made it clear he was not attempting to kill himself or to harm others He waited until the hallway was clear so no one was in the line of fire he explained He purposely shot his left forearm so he would survive the blast he addedInvestigators still pressed Bird for a motivation"Bird stated that there were many reasons for what he did today but the main reason why he shot himself was due to the fact that he is upset with the way President Trump was running our country" an officer wrote in the police report obtained by The Post "He stated that he did not agree with the policies that Trump had put into place and he felt someone needed to take a stand to prove a point"More clues to his thinking were contained in the sealed letters recovered from the bathroom sink One addressed to the college’s president Federico Zaragoza begins with Bird "sincerely" apologizing "for my behavior today""I was motivated by multiple reasons" he wrote The note then pointed to an Oct 20 2017 CBS News story "[T]he Earth had roughly 100 million malnutrition and pollution deaths in the past decade – and the Earth is on a course for at least another 100 million such deaths in the next decade" the professor wrote "One hundred million deaths are more than all the military and civilian deaths of WW2"A "less significant" factor in his decision was the Oct 1 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas Bird wrote "Since this incident there has been no national legislation banning bump stocks banning civilian ownership of AR-15 type assault weapons and the passage of universal gun background checks legislation Apparently it is about as easy to buy an AR-15 as a 2-shot derringer"The police report stated that during his interview with police Bird became so emotional his voice clogged with tears and his breath coming up shallow that investigators had to steer the topic away from politics or the shooting until the suspect regained his composure He also reiterated to police "he did not shoot himself in protest but rather to promote better gun control" investigators wrote"Bird stated that he believed that by shooting himself he was able to effectively deliver the message he intended to deliver"—This article was
