Pragya to face charges for Babri remark FIR ordered

first_imgNEW DELHI: BJP candidate Pragya Thakur will be charged for saying she was “proud to be part of the Babri mosque demolition”. An election officer has ordered an FIR against her. Pragya Thakur, the BJP candidate for Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal in the national election, had said in an interview to television channel TV9 over the weekend that she was among the people who demolished the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992, and she was “proud” of it. “We had removed a blot from the country. We had gone to demolish the structure. I climbed atop the structure and broke it, and I feel extremely proud that God gave me this opportunity. We will make sure that a Ram Temple is built at that site,” Pragya Thakur said. She was served notice for “creating mutual hatred or cause tension between different communities”, but unfazed, she said she “stands by” what she said.last_img read more

Genealogy site DNA used to help solve decadesold murder

RENO, Nev. — Forensic genealogists followed a trail built on decades-old DNA evidence to help determine the identity of a woman whose body was found near a Lake Tahoe hiking trail in 1982 and her killer, investigators said Tuesday.Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam announced he has closed the investigation into the shooting death of the victim identified for the first time publicly on Tuesday as Mary Silvani. She was born in Pontiac, Michigan, in 1948 and attended high school in Detroit before moving to California.Balaam said her killer was James Richard Curry, who was born in Texas in 1946 and served prison time for robbery there before he was arrested in California in January 1983. He says Curry confessed to a 1982 murder in Santa Clara and two killings in the San Jose area in January 1983 but killed himself in a Santa Clara jail before he went to trial. Curry also was a suspect in a fourth murder in the Santa Clara area but that victim’s remains were never found, authorities said.For decades, the victim was known only as “Sheep’s Flat Jane Doe,” named after the popular hiking trail where her body was found with gunshot wounds near Tahoe’s north shore just off the Mount Rose Highway above Incline Village.At a news conference in Reno on Tuesday, sheriff’s detectives, forensic scientists, and genealogists described a remarkable series of challenges they faced in piecing together evidence and tracing the extended family trees of hundreds of individuals based on DNA run through an online genealogy database called GEDMatch.Balaam said they involved the same techniques that were used to find a suspect in the “Golden State Killer” investigation last year. He said the 37-year-old cold case at Tahoe was solved through a combination of the DNA evidence, new advances in forensic genealogy research and old-fashioned detective work.“This is an incredible story,” he said. “This technology is absolutely fascinating.”Roadblocks along the way included the fact Curry was born out of wedlock and raised under a different name in the Dallas area. His DNA wasn’t in the FBI database because he was never convicted of the California murders, Balaam said.After identifying his biological mother in Texas, Balaam said Curry was eventually linked to the Tahoe killing through DNA obtained from the sexual assault kit kept in evidence since the body was found on July 17, 1982.Based on the GEDMatch results, the DNA Doe Project working with Indentifinders International was able to determine the victim was the biological daughter of a now-deceased couple in Detroit. They suspected it was Mary Silvani and were able to confirm her identity based on a set of fingerprints provided by Detroit police from a 1974 misdemeanour.“If everybody had not done their job as this went along, this case never would have been solved,” Washoe County sheriff’s Detective Kathleen Bishop said.Police said in January 1983 that Curry, who was the manager of a storage lot in Santa Clara, confessed to killing a couple who ran a rival storage facility in the San Jose area, Gerald Novoselatz and his wife, Sharon.Balaam said Curry shot the man at the Novoselatz residence, then kidnapped and sexually assaulted his wife before killing her elsewhere. While in custody, Curry confessed to fatally shooting Richard Lemmon Jr. of Bakersfield, California, and told detectives where to find his body stashed in the Santa Clara storage unit.Scott Sonner, The Associated Press read more

News | April 06, 2010 Children’s Hospital Opens Operative, Diagnostic MRI Suite April 6, 2010 – To optimize the use of its magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, Nationwide Children’s Hospital is unveiling a new combined operative and diagnostic MRI suite. This unfixed MRI system can move between three different rooms, allowing physicians to utilize the machine for intraoperative MRI diagnostics and non-operative diagnostic imaging. One of a few MRI’s in the U.S. to be used this three-room design, the set up includes a central room for housing the magnet and two adjoining rooms, into which the magnet can be transported.The intraoperative MRI allows neurosurgeons to scan for the presence of a remaining tumor during a tumor-removal operation, reducing the chance of leaving a portion of tumor. In addition, the MRI suite is located near the operating room, which increases access for the anesthesia team as anesthesia is required for a pediatric patient undergoing an MRI scan. According to the hospital, due to the close proximity of the MRI to the operating room, the number of patients who can be seen during an eight-hour period is doubled and this additional system will increase volume capacity by 20 percent. The hospitals expects both radiology and neurosurgery patients to benefit from this combined MRI suite.

The study titled, “Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for Low-Risk Prostate Cancer: A Ten Year Analysis,” was published online in the Sept. 9, 2017 issue of Cureus.“This is a groundbreaking study — the first to report on the efficacy and toxicity of SBRT in the treatment of low-risk prostate cancer following 10 years of treatment. All patients participating in the study were treated with the CyberKnife System, which delivers extremely precise radiation treatments using unique, real-time image guidance and automatic motion correction. The study outcomes were excellent both in terms ofdisease control and tolerability, and were superior to long-term conventional intensity-modulated radiation therapy, based on results from other studies,” said Alan Katz, M.D., Flushing Radiation Oncology.Study participants completed their entire treatment in just five daily sessions, compared to conventional radiation therapy which typically takes 30 to 40 sessions. Additional 10-year outcomes showed:The disease free survival (DFS) rate was 93.7 percent, indicating there were no signs or symptoms of the cancer during the evaluation period;The median prostate specific antigen (PSA) value was 0.1 ng/ml. A low PSA value is associated with a reduced risk of cancer recurrence or metastases; andPatient-reported bowel and urinary function scores showed initial declines, which recovered to baseline where they remained throughout the remainder of the study period.The prostate gland can move unpredictably throughout the course of treatment, making the ability to track, detect and correct for motion critically important. Throughout the course of treatment, the CyberKnife System continually collects images to determine exactly where the tumor is, ensuring that clinicians deliver radiation exactly where they want it. The system detects the tumor motion and automatically adjusts the radiation beam in real time to match the motion of the tumor, giving clinicians confidence to apply smaller treatment margins and enabling higher doses and fewer treatments.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of Imago Systems Related Content News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 Mevion and C-RAD Release Integration for Improved Proton Therapy Treatment Quality Mevion Medical Systems and C-RAD announced the integration between the C-RAD Catalyst PT and the Mevion S250i proton… read more center_img Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

At a time when others are asking him, “Can you make it up those stairs?” he told us to take them running. “It’s time to accelerate,” he said, “not slow down.”Rubenstein also reminisced about turning 50 and how he had congratulated himself then, with a self-knowing wink, on being “halfway there, with another 50 to live.” Now he says he does the math with a more realistic calculus. “Actuarially,” he said, “I know I’m supposed to live another 20 years, which will take me to 85.”His remark about speeding up through the final innings surprised me because many of my contemporaries in their late 50s and 60s are now choosing to retire. For the record, I’m 57 and counting. A 2014 Gallup Poll reported that the average retirement age is now 62, even though one in four retirees will live past 90, according to the Social Security Administration. Rubenstein clearly has no plans to follow the herd.Nor is he alone in taking this chapter at a full gallop. The recent deaths of “60 Minutes’ ” Bob Simon and New York Times reporter David Carr threw Rubinstein’s comments into stark relief.Simon, one of the most peripatetic journalists of any generation, enjoyed a blockbuster of a final chapter before he was killed in a car accident at age 73. Having crisscrossed the globe repeatedly, Simon completed his final “60 Minutes” assignment just hours before his death. Carr’s death from complications of lung cancer came the day after Simon’s. He was 58, and his footprint was everywhere — on Twitter, in print, even in the documentary “Page One” about the Times. Simon. Carr. Thanks to them, I’ve been running a new algorithm in my head, trying to figure out how many years I probably have left. Call it “longevity mathematics.”I’m just a few months younger than Carr, and there’s no doubt that I’m a lot closer to the finish line than to the start. With that perspective come two looming questions: “How long do I have?” and “How will I use that time?”As for the first query: I’ve been looking to new role models, those who bloomed or rebloomed in midlife. My idiosyncratic list includes novelist Frank McCourt, who taught at my Manhattan high school for decades before publishing the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir “Angela’s Ashes” when he was 66. He lived another 13 years. Swimmer Diana Nyad, 65, finally succeeded in making the 110-mile crossing from Cuba to Florida on her fifth attempt in 2013. Then there’s Ruth Westheimer, now 86, whose energy and drive amazed me when we worked together to produce her Web site; she didn’t become the “Dr. Ruth” we know until her early 50s and is still dispensing sex advice to this very day. None of these individuals would qualify as “retiring,” in the literal or metaphoric sense of the word.Of course, not everyone’s final chapters will be filled with such accomplishments, nor do they need to be in order to be meaningful. My friends Rich and Jim, both septuagenarians, have spent the past decade globe-trotting and have logged visits to six of the seven continents. My former landlady-turned-BFF, 98-year-old Denise Kessler, has lived her last decades with the energy and drive of someone a third her age, involving herself in political campaigns, turning up at parties as one of the “Last Hurrah” cheerleaders, and leading a class in water aerobics.When Denise turned 90 and I feared the end might be near for her, I wrote a letter to let her know how she’d influenced me. “Others might have decided it was time to coast, but not you, my dear. It’s an example I try to emulate — never to rest in the static — but to dig in my roots, deep and wide, even when it’s not easy or when it’s scary or hurts.”But as much as I plan and hope to go cheering into my 90s, Carr’s unexpected death cut awfully close to home. There’s no math I can do, no heroes I can resurrect, to avoid this undeniable lesson about living: It’s finite. And we don’t know when it will end. As it turns out, Carr delivered his own valedictory in a commencement address to Berkeley’s journalism graduates last spring. He gave the students his version of the Ten Commandments, among them this: “Don’t just do what you’re good at. If you stay in your comfort zone, you’ll never know what you’re capable of.” Followed by this: “Do not be a bystander in your own life. You’ll miss everything.”This bit of wisdom reminded me of another Rubenstein aphorism: “Persist — don’t take no for an answer. If you’re happy to sit at your desk and not take any risk, you’ll be sitting at your desk for the next 20 years.”Note to self: It’s not too late to gun that engine, put the top down, floor the accelerator — and go.— — —Petrow writes the “Civilities” column for The Washington Post.

Obama Fields Housing Questions in Web Chat

first_img Share August 7, 2013 442 Views Following a speech Tuesday night in Phoenix, in which President Barack Obama discussed his ideas for housing finance reform, the president today took questions from American citizens during a “”live discussion””: hosted by “”Zillow””: CEO Spencer Rascoff. [IMAGE]During the question and answer session Wednesday, Obama reiterated his stated goals to bring a gradual end to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, to bring private capital into the housing market, and to offer affordable housing options–both rental options and 30-year mortgages. Obama admitted that while it is the American dream to own a home, not all Americans are in a position to purchase a home. In particular, younger Americans with [COLUMN_BREAK]student debt may not be in a position to accrue more debt through a mortgage loan. In fact, Obama said one of the problems leading to the housing crisis was that many Americans who should have been renting were being offered mortgage loans. Obama plans to combat the housing dilemmas facing young Americans in two ways–by helping ensure affordable rental housing options and by reducing the cost of college. Money that for past generations would have gone toward a down payment on a house is now going to student debt, Obama said. Thus, helping reduce the cost of college will positively impact the housing market by allowing more young people to purchase homes instead of returning to their parents’ homes, he said. Obama also discussed plans for the future of housing finance, including scaling back Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s portfolios and encouraging private capital to enter the market. In most developed countries, the government does not have such a large role in the housing market, Obama said. “”We’re actually confident that the private market can step in, do a good job, and the government can be a backstop,”” Obama said, adding, “”In some ways it’s a return to earlier models.”” Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Barack Obama Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Investors Lenders & Servicers Service Providers Zillow 2013-08-07 Krista Franks Brockcenter_img Obama Fields Housing Questions in Web Chat in Governmentlast_img read more

morning calling on her supporters to give Donald Trump “an open mind and the chance to lead” A day after her supporters gathered beneath a glass ceiling at the Jacob K Javits Convention Center in New York City she addressed a smaller crowd of staff and supporters in a ballroom at the New Yorker Hotel Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta appeared without Clinton at her election night rally announcing that she would wait to speak until all votes were counted After being introduced by her running mate Tim Kaine she voiced gratitude and hope for the future She appeared to choke up as she addressed women in particular nodding to the historic nature of her candidacy “I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion” she said “And to all the little girls who are watching this never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams” Read her full remarks here: KAINE: My wife Anne and I are so proud of Hillary Clinton (APPLAUSE) I’m proud of Hillary Clinton because she has been and is a great history maker in every thing that she has done as a civil rights lawyer and first lady of Arkansas and first lady of this country and senator and secretary of state KAINE: She has made history In a nation that is good at so many things but that has made it uniquely difficult for women to be elected to federal office she became the first major party nominee as a woman to be president and last night won the popular vote of Americans for the president (APPLAUSE) That is an amazing accomplishment It is an amazing accomplishment I’m proud of Hillary Clinton because in the words of Langston Hughes she’s “held fast to dreams” She was inspired at a young age to an epiphany that if families and children do well that’s the best barometer of whether society does well In everything she’s done she’s focused on that We know she would have made history as a president in one sense but we never have had a president who’s made their whole career about the empowerment of families and children And I was as excited about that in the Oval Office as I was excited to have my friend Hillary there and make history as the first woman president I’m excited and proud of Hillary because she has built such a wonderful team There is a… (APPLAUSE) There’s a beautiful and kind of comical parable in the New Testament about a vineyard owner who hires people to work and says I’m going to pay you this for a full day Then he hires people at noon I’m going to pay you the same thing for the half day Then he hires people one hours work I’m going to pay you the same And those who started earlier in the day said hold on we don’t like this that you’re treating everybody who came late just as well as you’re treating us I’m going to tell you something here’s what I’ve come to know so well about Hillary The team that she has assembled over the years of people that are so deeply loyal to her because she’s so deeply loyal to them is inspiring But I’ve seen that same degree of loyalty and compassion and sensitivity extended to the most recent folks who have joined the team the folks who came to the vineyard with just one hour to go Her loyalty and compassion of Hillary and Bill to people if you’re with you you’re with you And that is just something so remarkable And finally I’m proud of Hillary because she loves this country (APPLAUSE) Nobody — nobody had to wonder about Hillary Clinton whether she would accept an outcome of an election in our beautiful democracy Nobody had to ask that question Nobody had to doubt it She knows our country for what it is She knows the system that we have and its warts and blemishes She’s deeply in love with it and accepts it She’s been in battles before where if it didn’t go her way she accepted it but then woke up the next day and battled again for the dreams that she’s held fast to And that love of country is something that I think is obvious to everybody obvious to everyone I want to thank Hillary Clinton for asking Anne and I to join this wild ride We — about a week before she asked if I would be her running mate Anne and I went up to Westchester and we sat down with Hillary and Bill and with Chelsea and Mark and with Charlotte and Aiden for about three hours of conversation to try to determine whether we would be the right people to be on the ticket And when we got in the car to head back to the airport after the three hour discussion I said to Anne “Honey I don’t know whether we’re going to be on this ticket or not but I do know this we’re going to remember that three hours for the rest of our life” And now we’ve — we’ll remember 105 days that we’ve had with this fantastic couple of public servants and all of you for the rest of our life I’ll just say this Hillary and I know well the wisdom and the words of William Faulkner He said “They kilt us but they ain’t whupped us yet” (APPLAUSE) “They kilt us but they ain’t whupped us yet” because we know that the work remains We know that the dreams of empowering families and children remain And in that work that important work that we have to do as a nation it is so comforting even at a tough time to know that Hillary Clinton is somebody until her very last breath is going to be battling for the values that make this nation great and the values that we care so deeply about KAINE: So now please join me in welcoming Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton (APPLAUSE) CLINTON: Thank you Thank you all Thank you (APPLAUSE) Thank you all very much Thank you Thank you Thank you so much (APPLAUSE) Very rowdy group Thank you my friends Thank you Thank you thank you so very much for being here and I love you all too Last night I congratulated Donald Trump and offered to work with him on behalf of our country I hope that he will be a successful president for all Americans This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for and I’m sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country But I feel pride and gratitude for this wonderful campaign that we built together this vast diverse creative unruly energized campaign You represent the best of America and being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life (APPLAUSE) I know how disappointed you feel because I feel it too and so do tens of millions of Americans who invested their hopes and dreams in this effort This is painful and it will be for a long time but I want you to remember this Our campaign was never about one person or even one election it was about the country we love and about building an America that’s hopeful inclusive and big-hearted We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought But I still believe in America and I always will And if you do then we must accept this result and then look to the future Donald Trump is going to be our president We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power and we don’t just respect that we cherish it It also enshrines other things; the rule of law the principle that we are all equal in rights and dignity freedom of worship and expression We respect and cherish these values too and we must defend them (APPLAUSE) Now — and let me add our constitutional democracy demands our participation not just every four years but all the time So let’s do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear; making our economy work for everyone not just those at the top protecting our country and protecting our planet and breaking down all the barriers that hold any American back from achieving their dreams CLINTON: We’ve spent a year and a half bringing together millions of people from every corner of our country to say with one voice that we believe that the American dream is big enough for everyone — for people of all races and religions for men and women for immigrants for LGBT people and people with disabilities For everyone (APPLAUSE) So now our responsibility as citizens is to keep doing our part to build that better stronger fairer America we seek And I know you will I am so grateful to stand with all of you I want to thank Tim Kaine and Anne Holton for being our partners on this journey (APPLAUSE) It has been a joy getting to know them better and it gives me great hope and comfort to know that Tim will remain on the front lines of our democracy representing Virginia in the Senate (APPLAUSE) To Barack and Michelle Obama our country owes you an enormous debt of gratitude (APPLAUSE) We — we thank you for your graceful determined leadership that has meant so much to so many Americans and people across the world And to Bill and Chelsea Mark Charlotte Aidan our brothers and our entire family my love for you means more than I can ever express You crisscrossed this country on our behalf and lifted me up when I needed it most — even four-month-old Aidan who traveled with his mom I will always be grateful to the creative talented dedicated men and women at our headquarters in Brooklyn and across our country (APPLAUSE) You poured your hearts into this campaign For some of you who are veterans it was a campaign after you had done other campaigns Some of you it was your first campaign I want each of you to know that you were the best campaign anybody could have ever expected or wanted (APPLAUSE) And to the millions of volunteers community leaders activists and union organizers who knocked on doors talked to neighbors posted on Facebook even in secret private Facebook sites… (LAUGHTER) (APPLAUSE) … I want everybody coming out from behind that and make sure your voices are heard going forward (APPLAUSE) To everyone who sent in contributions as small at $5 and kept us going thank you Thank you from all of us And to the young people in particular I hope you will hear this I have as Tim said spent my entire adult life fighting for what I believe in I’ve had successes and I’ve had setbacks Sometimes really painful ones Many of you are at the beginning of your professional public and political careers You will have successes and setbacks too This loss hurts but please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it (APPLAUSE) CLINTON: It is — it is worth it (APPLAUSE) And so we need — we need you to keep up these fights now and for the rest of your lives And to all the women and especially the young women who put their faith in this campaign and in me I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion (APPLAUSE) Now I — I know — I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling but some day someone will and hopefully sooner than we might think right now (APPLAUSE) And — and to all the little girls who are watching this never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams Finally… (APPLAUSE) Finally I am so grateful for our country and for all it has given to me I count my blessings every single day that I am an American And I still believe as deeply as I ever have that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences strength in our convictions and love for this nation our best days are still ahead of us (APPLAUSE) Because you know — you know I believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together And you should never ever regret fighting for that You know scripture tells us “Let us not grow weary in doing good for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart” So my friends let us have faith in each other let us not grow weary let us not lose heart for there are more seasons to come And there is more work to do I am incredibly honored and grateful to have had this chance to represent all of you in this consequential election May God bless

Saturday completing the final leg of an epic journey across the United States that began over two months ago Eric Thayer—Reuters 1 of 30 Advertisement So how does this plane work It’s a single-seater aircraft containing 17000 solar cells built into a huge 72-meter wingspan that’s bigger than the 60-meter wingspan of the Boeing 747 (The Solar Impulse 2 also weights just 2300 kg; the Boeing 747 has a maximum take-off weight of about 440000 kg) Borschberg and another Swiss pilot Bertrand Piccard will take turns flying the plane during the roughly 10 legs around the world They’re supported by a 60-person support team tasked with anticipating every possible scenario to ensure the plane’s proper function and safety What about nighttime During the day the solar cells recharge the Solar Impulse 2’s lithium batteries allowing the plane to fly at night That said the plane does depend on appropriate weather to ensure there’s enough sunlight for the solar cells to absorb Has anyone tried this before Yes at least when it comes to building solar-powered aircraft Back in the 1970s an American alternative energy company called AstroFlight developed an unmanned experimental aircraft called the AstroFlight Sunrise After four years of development the Sunrise finally took off and flew over a military reservation in California becoming the world’s first aircraft to fly on solar power Will my ordinary commercial flight be solar-powered some day Probably not any time soon The Solar Impulse 2’s flight is made possible because the aircraft is so light The technology isn’t yet ready to power heavier passenger-packed planes even if your next commercial flight was totally covered with the world’s most efficient solar panels it still wouldn’t be enough to propel the plane Where can I catch a glimpse of Solar Impulse 2 If you live near one of several stops you might just catch a glimpse of it at a nearby airport It’ll be tough though: The plane only lands at night since winds tend to be lower and it generally avoids periods when commercial flights are operating due to its long wingspan The First #RTW Solar Flight is controlled from the Mission Control Center in #Monaco #MCC

reflect the views of TIME editorsIDEAS Wilson Leung and Kevin Yam are Hong Kong lawyers and convenors of the pro-democracy Progressive Lawyers Group It is normally difficult to get lawyers to stop talking and stay quiet But that is exactly what happened last Tuesday when 2000 of them all dressed in black marched through the center of Hong Kong in a dignified "silent protest" against a move by the Chinese government to directly intervene in the citys legal affairs At the beginning of last week the executive body of Chinas parliament the National Peoples Congress Standing Committee (NPCSC) issued an "interpretation" of the Basic Law Hong Kong’s miniconstitution that has provided the legal framework for the territory since its handover from Britain to China in 1997 The purpose of the interpretation was and its probable legal effect would be to bar two elected legislators from taking their seats in Hong Kongs legislature These lawmakers Yau Wai-ching 25 and Sixtus “Baggio” Leung 30 have been elected on a platform advocating Hong Kong independence Their specific offense (at least in the eyes of Beijing) was to unfurl a banner proclaiming "Hong Kong Is Not China" and to pronounce the countrys name in a derogatory manner during their swearing-in Read More: China Blocks Pro-Independence Hong Kong Lawmakers in Unprecedented Move The interpretation has caused profound disquiet within Hong Kong and particular consternation within the legal community Immediately after the interpretation the Hong Kong Bar Association expressed "deep regret" over the NPCSCs action and stated that this would undermine "public confidence in the rule of law in Hong Kong" and its tradition of judicial independence Dennis Kwok the legislator representing the legal sector quickly organized the silent protest which was the biggest demonstration by the citys lawyers since the handover and which terminated at the Court of Final Appeal an imposing neo-classical building that stands as a symbol of the separate legal system enjoyed by Hong Kong There is little dispute that the NPCSC has the legal power to issue interpretations of the Basic Law But there is also a widespread sentiment (at least in Hong Kong if not across the border) that it is a power that should be used only in very rare circumstances because of the grave damage it is capable of causing Even Hong Kongs former Chief Justice Andrew Li a respected figure who speaks in the precise cautious manner typical of British-trained patricians has stated in no uncertain terms that the NPCSC should refrain from using its power in a manner that overrides the Hong Kong courts: "Although it would be legally valid and binding such an interpretation would have an adverse effect on judicial independence in Hong Kong" Read More: China Targets More Liberal Hong Kong Lawmakers in Widening Crackdown Although the NPCSC has previously issued four interpretations this one is especially pernicious because for the first time the NPCSC issued its diktat while legal proceedings on the same issue were already taking place in a Hong Kong court Indeed the hearing had already finished and the judge was in the midst of writing his decision Moreover although the decree claimed to be an interpretation of the Basic Law its real effect was to add new content to a local Hong Kong statute which is something beyond the NPCSCs legal power and can only be done by Hong Kongs own legislature There is already local legislation that governs the taking of oaths but the interpretation adds further requirements such as oaths having to be done "accurately completely and solemnly" and that there will be "no arrangement … for retaking the oath" for anyone who fails to do it properly the first time The interpretation is a tragedy for Hong Kong It strikes a deadly blow to the high degree of autonomy and judicial independence that was promised to Hong Kong and has been the cornerstone of its prosperity By intervening on an issue that was being handled by the Hong Kong courts and in a manner that effectively amends Hong Kongs local laws the Chinese government is sending a signal that the citys separate system is a mirage existing only to the degree that it aligns with Beijings wishes But it is also a tragedy for China especially for its efforts to assimilate Hong Kong into its nation-building project and to persuade the citys people that life is better now than under British rule In a poll conducted this summer nearly 1 in 6 respondents supported the idea of Hong Kong independence; and among 15- to 24-year-old the level of support rose to almost 40% That is an astonishing level of backing for an idea that even five years ago would have been rejected by all but a handful of fringe thinkers Whether or not one supports the concept (and certainly there are many Hong Kong democracy advocates who do not) its rising popularity is a clear indicator that Beijings heavy-handed rule has alienated a significant segment of Hong Kongs population particularly its youth As China makes its bid to become a global superpower it must develop new and more nuanced ways of handling its affairs In Hong Kong China has a unique opportunity of showing the world and particularly its neighbors in Asia that it is capable of using not just brute force but also sophisticated strategies that involve consensus trust and adherence to mutually agreed rules However as highlighted by the NPCSCs latest interpretation that is quickly becoming a lost opportunity The Progressive Lawyers Group is a grouping of pro-democracy lawyers that was set up in January 2015 shortly after the 2014 Umbrella Movement Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news society and
