Adieu the king of mafias

first_imgThe long-drawn election process is over. Ignoring their sugar levels, supporters of Modi and BJP across the country are devouring laddoos to celebrate their massive success. And, forgetting their orders for laddoos and fireworks, nonplussed opposition parties are raising questions of EVM tampering. At the same time, in a stunning feat in Andhra Pradesh, Jagan Mohan Reddy rises like a phoenix to vanquish Chandrababu Naidu, who, being sure of retaining his post, was hopping from state to state to also play the kingmaker at the Centre. ‘Adieu, the king of mafias!’ people said in chorus. Also Read – A staunch allyHowever, it is also a cynical moment for many. With the national parties nowhere in the race and no other alternative, it is said in desperation that ‘it is a contest between the one who has come out of jail and the one who would go to jail.’ One way, it is true. In fact, it is the common refrain of every politician facing criminal charges, even serious ones, that they are politically motivated – be it Lalu, Jayalalithaa, or any other leader. While the cases linger in the courts, they enjoy the power and pelf. There is also a travesty of justice. In a petty matter of riot, Hardik Patel was disqualified from contesting because he was convicted, while those involved in serious cases, like Pragya, can contest as long as the trial drags on. Jagan, who is out on bail in CBI cases, has also repeated the refrain. Had there been a mechanism to dispose them of promptly, no one knows whether he could contest elections at all. Also Read – Cuban pathosAnyway, it is the winner who takes it all. Speaking against corruption, Jagan says, ‘God will punish if you are corrupt. It is a great script of God. Naidu had bought 23 MLAs from our party and it is the same figure of 23 that TDP has won now. He took 3 MPs from us and he is left with the same number in this election.’ If it is so, does he agree that God punished his father, Rajasekhara Reddy, with death in the helicopter crash, for the billions of rupees earned by him in grabbing government land? Will he also accept that sometimes God would blink his eyes, like in his own case, and in the cases of those powerful former ministers and others who were involved in scams like land-grabbing, Volkswagon, etc., and are now back with a bang under the banner of YSRC? Whether the statement of Jagan is spiritual or political, on record he has vowed to probe all allegations of scams of the previous regime. Be that as it may, one thing is obvious. It was only Jagan who was adequately equipped to take on Naidu in elections; no one else could. Hailing from a political family from Kadapa, he knows the intricacies of factional feuds and bomb politics very well. His grandfather died in an explosion. Recently, his paternal uncle, ex-MP, was killed with reasons still being ascertained. He has inherited a political legacy, experience, and enormous ill-gotten wealth from his father to match Naidu’s slush money and political wiles. Indeed, he was an even match, punch for punch; rupee for rupee. The revenge of his loss in 2014 burning within – he lost 46 seats with wafer-thin margins; this time he has not taken any chances. He walked 3600 kms to feel the pulse of people and prepared his manifesto, to counter the freebies given by Naidu as the elections were closing up. Sifted them to nine points – the Navaratnas, which are schemes for farmers and self-help groups of women, and for drinking water and irrigation; schemes for health, education, and pensions; and importantly, prohibition. Crowds were pulled for his rallies and road shows. Lured by money, biryani and liquor, workers happily deserted their daily jobs in shops and construction works to swell the numbers. As the election day was nearing, the second rung leaders were put into action, to compete with Naidu, to distribute cash – Rs 25000 per family, and also gold, silver, sports kits, etc; caste-based votes were also targeted by inducing their leaders. At the same time, unlike Naidu, who was indulging in rhetoric and harsh language, Jagan chose to maintain decorum during the campaign; perhaps it is his positive trait. It all worked well. In reality, even without so much strategising by Jagan, Naidu would have lost. His popularity has dipped so much that even his staunch supporters – the Telugu cine-world, campaigned against him this time. In all his actions right from choosing the capital to patronising several mafias, to splashing public money for a show of grandeur when the state is cash-strapped, he has proved himself a liability to the people. Standing as a symbol of grandeur, Naidu has unveiled a huge statue of NTR, whom he had unceremoniously backstabbed in the past. Tongue-in-cheek, people scoffed at him. Against the recommendations of the Sivaramakrishnan Committee, by converting precious delta lands, he began constructing a world-class state capital at Amaravathi, and engaged experts from Singapore. People were wary that in this new state starving for finances, a modest capital would have served the purpose, and that Indian experts could have easily built it, like the well-planned cities of Chandigarh, Bhubaneswar or Raipur? His intentions became too obvious – to help land-sharks and himself. It is alleged that he made a benami purchase of 14 acres of land through the Heritage group; spared it from land-pooling and insider trade was involved in capital selection. Even many temples have been demolished, angering people. And, every citizen, including the poorest, has to contribute in repaying the huge loans, although they will derive no benefit from this Taj Mahal, being built by our present-day Shahjahan, with special interests in Singapore and Dubai. In addition to helping the mafia of land everywhere, he has also been patronising those of liquor, mining and sand. Promoting liquor was certainly his nemesis. In a state where drinking evoked a social stigma; toddy-huts were seen only in the outskirts of the villages; the few liquor shops were carefully concealed from the public gaze in towns and cities, he has brought respectability to drinking. Belt-shops have mushroomed; there are one every 100 yards, prominently displaying their wares. As a result, hitherto non-drinkers began tasting it; occasional drinkers have become addicts, and regular ones turned drunkards. Aggravating the misery of the people of the lower strata, drunken men not only squander their daily earnings but also batter their women and children. The helpless women are forced to take up menial jobs, while children drop out from schools to join petty jobs or get into petty crimes. Lakhs of families are ruined, while liquor mafia is reaping the harvest. Therefore, the assurance of Jagan to phase this menace out has massively gone in his favour. Nexus with the mining-mafia has also worked for Naidu’s downfall. When the tribal people of Araku pleaded for his immediate attention to the illegal quarrying by the local MLA and others that were damaging their crops and was polluting the forests and atmosphere, he turned Nelson’s eye. Attempts were even made to crush their protests through devious means. When the Naxalites finally killed the MLA and the ex-MLA, Naidu accommodated their kin comfortably – one as a minister, and the other as a senior government officer, instead of probing deep into their illegal activity. One cannot plead ignorance when there is complicity. Then, NGT slapping a fine of Rs 100 crores on the state government for their indifference to the illegal extraction of sand from Krishna river-bed, is only indicative of the patronage extended to the sand mafia. Although SC has stayed the order, the fact remains that illegal sand extraction is a serious problem in several river-bed areas, affecting agriculture, fishing, etc. Naidu played cool since the fine would have to be paid by the tax-payers while the mafia continues with the operations. In spite of all the above, and many more, naively, Naidu has assumed that people are demented and would forget everything with his election-time sops and Vision 2029. How can they? Even his cash-for-vote scam during MLC election, his silence about SCS for Andhra for four years as long as he was friendly with BJP, are also fresh in their minds. His lavish spending of public money, even by patronising the illegally constructed Novotel Five Star hotel at Vizag is also everyday news. Stealing of private data of citizens to get the names of lakhs of hostile voters deleted is on top of their minds. Therefore, people have not wasted the opportunity; they massively voted for the one who has not been tested so far. They feel redeemed with Jagan’s post-election statement indicating his resolve to implement his Navaratnas. He said, ‘My aim is to win the 2024 elections. And for this, I will endeavour to earn the acclaim of people as the best CM in the country.’ Perhaps he will succeed in his mission. People who know him intimately for years vouchsafe for it since he is god-fearing and sincere. Jagan has also assured that his would be a corruption-free government. But, everyone knows that for this to happen, the state needs an autonomous institution that would tackle both political and bureaucratic corruption. If his intentions are real, he would create it forthwith. It should not end up as empty rhetoric, like that of Modi. People are closely watching. But, for now, it is Naidu’s turn to claim the ruse of political vendetta. (Dr. N Dilip Kumar is a retired IPS officer and a former member of Public Grievances Commission, Delhi.

UN sends peacekeepers to protect Sudanese refugees in Central African Republic

14 December 2009United Nations peacekeepers were sent today to protect a camp of refugees from Sudan’s war-ravaged Darfur region in the north-east of the Central African Republic (CAR) and humanitarian staff working there after an attack, apparently by bandits, left three people dead on a nearby road. “This attack apparently due to people seeking to block the road [between Sam Ouandja and Ouanda-Djale], has provoked serious tension between the UFDR, a armed Central African group, two of whose members were killed, and the Sudanese refugees of Sam Ouandja,” the UN mission set up to protect civilians and facilitate humanitarian aid in Chad and CAR said in a communiqué.The mission, known by the acronym MINURCAT, added that it was following the situation closely and would reinforce its military presence in Sam Ouandja if necessary.CAR, especially its north-east, has been plagued by armed rebels and bandits for years, a situation exacerbated by the spill-over of the Darfur conflict. UN officials have repeatedly called for an end to attacks on civilians that have seen scores of thousands of people driven into the bush, with scant means of sustenance, an appeal reiterated by the mission today.“MINURCAT stresses that refugee camps must maintain their civilian character and that all attacks perpetrated against refugees or humanitarian workers constitute a violation of international human rights that can entail penal consequences,” it said. read more

Sri Lanka urges UN to study global inequality failure to lift millions

Citing his efforts to ensure that economic growth benefits all segments of society in his own country, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa today called on the United Nations to study the international community’s failure to improve the lot of the impoverished worldwide.“According to World Bank projections, by 2015, Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia will be home to approximately 40 per cent of the developing world’s population living in extreme poverty,” he told the General Assembly on the first day of its annual General Debate, noting that commitment to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) had brought a real sense of hope. “[Yet these projections] only diminish the sense of our optimism. It is fitting for the UN system to examine the causes for the failure in improving the lot of the deprived,” he said.The year 2015 is the target date for achieving the MDGs, which seek to slash extreme hunger and poverty, boost access to health care and education, achieve gender equality and environmental stability, and reduce maternal and child mortality and the incidence of HIV/AIDS.“Reflecting on the work of the UN, matters of a political nature have overridden the most basic issues, which affect the underprivileged and marginalized, who dominate world society,” Mr. Rajapaksa said, noting that while appreciable progress has been made on the MDGs, the results have been uneven among and within countries. With regard to Sri Lanka, he said his vision has been to distribute the benefits of growth across all segments of the population and prevent inequalities, social exclusion and adverse environmental effects. He stressed that the post-2015 development agenda, the theme of this year’s 68th General Assembly, must have poverty eradication and accelerated growth in the developing world as its primary goals, but he pointed to the uneven playing field between developed and developing countries with regard to global warming gas emissions.“Centuries of growth in advanced economies have left little carbon space for the developing world, challenging their growth,” he said. “The thin lines of balancing economic development and protection of the environment will remain a great challenge in future development policy-setting. “It is therefore critical that developed countries honour their commitments and compensate damage to the environment, on the basis of common but differentiated responsibilities.”On other issues, Mr. Rajapaksa called for reform of international monetary and financial institutions to express the solid voice of the developing world, decried interference by some in the internal affairs of developing countries, called for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and condemned the United States embargo against Cuba. Meeting earlier with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Mr. Rajapaksa exchanged views on the post-conflict situation in Sri Lanka and the country’s cooperation with the UN. According to a readout of the meeting, the Secretary-General noted the Government’s latest efforts to conduct the provincial elections and to implement the recommendations of its Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission. Mr. Ban also addressed the remaining challenges in reconciliation and emphasized the need for a more holistic approach. read more

Winners of multilingual essay contest on new UN sustainability agenda honoured in

“You were asked to do something inspired and challenging – to write an essay in an official United Nations language that is not your own,” the UN chief said in a message delivered to the Global Youth Forum by Cristina Gallach, the Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information. “You did so in the United Nations’ 70th anniversary year. You are our “70 for 70” team!From a pool of over 1,200 entrants, the 70 students, from 42 countries representing 60 universities, were selected as winners of the essay contest, which was organized by ELS Educational Services, Inc., and the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI).The Many Languages, One World, contest challenged college and university students from around the globe to write an essay examining the post-2015 global development agenda of the United Nations. The essays were to be submitted in one of the six official United Nations languages, which was not the student’s first-language, or the principal language of instruction in their primary or secondary education. The official languages of the United Nations are Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.More than 3,500 people from 130 countries took part in the initial phase of the contest. The winners were invited to New York and given the opportunity today to speak in the UN General Assembly Hall.In his remarks, the Secretary-General noted the importance of multilingualism, which “allows us to come together across diverse societies to work cooperatively to improve the state of the world.”“This is, of course, is the central mission of the United Nations, and it is one that depends upon multilingualism,” he said. Describing the year 2015 as “a special time,” Mr. Ban said this year represents “a historic opportunity to forge a new sustainable development path that will lead us to an end to poverty and a life of dignity for all.”The students wrote about such topics as inclusive and equitable education for all; healthy lives and well-being for all ages; full and productive employment and decent work for all; and the importance of human rights and holding institutions accountable. read more

In Jerusalem Ban urges twoState solution to IsraelPalestine conflict

The UN chief noted that, over the past ten years as Secretary-General, he has witnessed countless examples of the power of science and technology to transform human lives.“Our challenge is to harness the innovation taking place in the research labs of this campus and around the world to meet the challenges facing humanity – from tackling climate change and disease, to preventing cyber-crime, promoting food security and so much more,” he said.Mr. Ban flagged that the biggest war being waged today does not involve guns or tanks or fighter jets.“The biggest confrontation is the battle for minds,” he said. “On the one hand, there are those who want to divide the world into ‘us and them.’ On the other, stand those who see humanity, in the words of the UN Charter, as ‘we the peoples.’”Palestinian and Israeli leaders must stand firm against terror, violence and incitement, the UN chief added, stressing the need for innovative thinking and action to tear down the walls of mistrust.“I urge the ‘start-up nation’ to help us all start up peace … start up understanding … start up reconciliation for a better world,” he said.Mr. Ban also encouraged the students to be global citizens, who never forget that challenges know no borders, and highlighted that they are also citizens of the world, urging them to help achieve the goals set out in 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which he described as “a blueprint for building a people-centred, planet-friendly future.” Tel Aviv University President Joseph Klafter (left) presents Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with the George S. Wise Medal. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe Citing the latest terror attack in Tel Aviv, Mr. Ban also said that stabbings, shootings and bombings will not achieve anything because violence “is never a solution.”“Such acts are precisely designed to breed fear and uncertainty. They eat away at trust and hope, drive Palestinians and Israelis farther apart, and strip away a sense of empathy for one another,” he said at a joint press encounter with the Israeli leader.“I must be equally clear that nearly 50 years of occupation has had a devastating impact on Palestinian lives, undermining the belief in a peaceful resolution to this conflict,” Mr. Ban added. “It also has not brought security for Israelis.”Urging leaders on both sides to urgently take concrete steps to restore hope and a political horizon, the UN chief stressed that “a negotiated two-state solution remains the only viable option to prevent perpetual conflict and to achieve the legitimate aspirations of both peoples.”The Secretary-General encouraged Israeli and Palestinian leaders to engage with the Middle East Quartet – made up of the European Union, Russia, the United States and the UN – which continues to work with the parties and the region to bring about the necessary conditions for the resumption of meaningful negotiations and is finalizing its first report on the impediments to the two-state solution and the way forward.“Mr. President, I count on your courage and leadership to take the bold actions that will establish a just, comprehensive and lasting peace for the people of Israel and Palestine,” Mr. Ban said, addressing President Rivlin.In his remarks, the UN chief also welcomed today’s announcement of the normalization of relations between Israel and Turkey. “This is an important and hopeful signal for the stability of the region,” he said.I urge the ‘start-up nation’ to help us all start up peace … start up understanding … start up reconciliation for a better worldEarlier in the day, Mr. Ban spoke at Tel Aviv University, where he accepted the George S. Wise Medal, an award named after an American Jewish sociologist who served as the first president of the institution. read more

Donegal County Council on verge of collapse after failure to agree budget

first_imgDONEGAL COUNTY COUNCIL failed to agree on a budget last night following a full three days of discussion on it, leaving the future of the council uncertain this morning.The votes were 13 in favour and 15 against with a number of the councillors expressing opposition to the introduction of water charges.While this result would generally mean a dissolution of the council and the appointment of a special administrator to run it, a decision was made to adjourn the meeting until next week.Speaking after the vote yesterday, Sinn Féin councillor Mick Quinn, who voted against the budget, said his party would “not be involved in any process that will further increase taxes and reduce services for families across Donegal.“We were not given a mandate to introduce water charges and we will not be doing Minister Hogan’s dirty work for him,” he said.As a result of last night’s vote, all councillors lose their salaries but Quinn said they did not seek election for a salary or for personal gain.Donegal has been devastated by unemployment and emigration. Donegal has worst infrastructure in Ireland. Our roads are crumbling. We have the highest rate of unemployment in Ireland and the lowest disposable income and youth unemployment is at almost 50 per cent. Fianna Fáil Dublin City Councillor Paul McAuliffe took the opportunity to call on his Labour colleagues in the council to also vote against a budget proposed for next Monday.This budget would see a 14 per cent increase in council rents, a €6 million reduction in the homeless budget and a move that would see the central government hold all local property tax raised.“The failure of government to allow the property tax fund local services is a broken promise made only months ago,” he commented. “In March 2013 Minister Phil Hogan said in an explicit promise that the tax would assist the funding of new service.”He said that instead, the council had seen a reduction in the local government fund and the money is being diverted to create the new entity Irish Water which will meter water from next year.However one constituency rival, Fine Gael candidate Noel Rock, accused McAuliffe of “pump and dump”, saying his comments were “classic Bertie-esque pump and dump: pump up the populism, then dump the decision making”.Explainer: Donegal councillors have to agree a budget next Monday – or they’ll be removed Independent councillors John Campbell and  Seamus O’Domhnaill also voiced their opposition to the budget last night on Twitter:last_img read more

Biden urges action on gun control in conference attended by Sandy Hook

first_imgUNITED STATES VICE President Joe Biden sought to rally support for the Obama administration’s gun control proposals as he spoke yesterday at a conference on gun violence held not far from the scene of December’s school massacre, saying it fundamentally altered the debate.Biden acknowledged gun control has traditionally been viewed as the third rail of American politics, recalling that when President Barack Obama asked him to take the lead, the president told him he didn’t have to do it if he didn’t want to.“America has changed on this issue,” Biden said at the conference at Western Connecticut State University, which the gunman once attended. “There is a moral price to be paid for inaction.”Noting the courage of the families of the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary in nearby Newtown, Biden said elected officials should show political courage.“We have to speak for those 20 beautiful children who died 69 days ago, 12 miles from here,” Biden said. “We have to speak for the voice of those six adults who died trying to save the children in their care that day who can’t speak for themselves. You have to speak for the 1,900 people who have died at the other end of a gun just since Sandy Hook in this country.”David and Francine Wheeler, parents of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victim Benjamin Wheeler (Jessica Hill/AP).Biden advocated a series of proposals, including universal background checks for gun owners, a ban on many military-style weapons and a limit on the size of magazines. He said the measures would save lives even though there was no guarantee they would prevent all mass shootings.“Fewer children will die,” Biden said.US Senator Richard Blumenthal, who organized the conference with two other members of the state’s congressional delegation, said those measures are achievable. He said the Newtown shooting dramatically changed the prospects for gun control.“Newtown has transformed America, and we need to build on that sense of urgency going forward,” Blumenthal said. “Preventing gun violence was thought to be untouchable politically two months ago. That unspeakable horror has given us unstoppable momentum.”Connecticut Governor Dannel P Malloy, attending the conference, announced that he wants to immediately ban high-capacity ammunition magazines, require background checks for the transfer of firearms and expand the state’s assault weapons ban. He has expressed frustration that the state legislature has not acted more quickly to form a response to the Newtown tragedy.Neil Heslin, father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victim Jesse Lewis (Jessica Hill/AP).The gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, killed his mother at their Newtown home before going to Sandy Hook and slaughtering 20 children and six adults. He committed suicide as police arrived.Other speakers at the conference, designed to give momentum to Obama’s gun control proposals, urged Congress to honor the memories of the victims with strong action, including Chris and Lynn McDonnell, whose 7-year-old daughter Grace was among the 26 people killed.“We ask our representatives to look into their hearts and remember the 26 beautiful lives we lost and pass meaningful laws to help prevent this from happening again,” Lynn McDonnell said, leading to a standing ovation.Malloy, Newtown First Selectman Pat Llodra, state police Capt. Dale Hourigan and the mayors of Bridgeport and Hartford participated, along with other experts in the fields of mental health, law enforcement and education.Gun makers and lobbyists weren’t invited to participate in the conference, but Blumenthal said gun rights advocates will have opportunities in hearings and other forums to express their points of view.Read:White House issues photo of Obama with gun>More: Sandy Hook children to pay tribute to classmates by singing at the Super Bowl>last_img read more

Google Doodle marks George Gilbert Scotts 200th birthday

first_imgYesterday’s Google Doodle celebrated the 450th anniversary of St Basil’s Cathedral in Russia, so it’s kind of fitting that the day after is the birthday of a man renowned for building them.Sir George Gilbert Scott would have been 200 today. The English architect was born on July 13th 1811 and over his 67 year life somehow managed to design and alter more than 800 buildings. That included work on 55 new churches, 16 church restorations, and 25 cathedrals.There are just too many of his buildings to list, but ones you may recognize include the Albert Memorial, St Pancras railway station, St Mary’s Cathedral, St John’s College, and Lichfield Cathedral. Thankfully Wikipedia comes to our aid and offers up a full list of his building achievements.Scott’s good work didn’t just extend to the buildings he created. Through his life he took many students under his wing who later made a name for themselves. Examples include his assistant William Bonython Moffat as well as pupils Charles Buckeridge, William Henry Crossland, and William White to name but a few.Architecture also ran in the family. Although Scott was the son of a clergyman, two of his sons (George and John) became well-known architects as did his grandson Giles Gilbert Scott.Scott was awarded the Royal Gold Medal for architecture in 1859 and then five years before his death in 1878 he was knighted. As a final honor his body was laid to rest in Westminster Abbey.We continue to enjoy the Google Doodles here at, but Google has spoiled us with its animated and interactive doodles of late. We hope to see a return to them soon thrown in every so often between the celebratory pictures.last_img read more

Greece seeks to extend ties with China

first_imgOn his five-day trip to China this week, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang discussed the real potential to boost bilateral cooperation between the two nations. During talks on Monday, the Greek PM highlighted the potential for Greece to be a gateway for Chinese products into the European market, reports Kathimerini.The talks follow the April 8 agreement for Chinese shipping giant COSCO to purchase a 67 per cent stake in Piraeus Port, which Tsipras says is “helping the country stand on its feet” and turn a new page after years of financial uncertainty.“We are sending a strong message to the international markets that Greece is decisively entering a new phase,” said the Prime Minister during a business forum in Beijing, as representatives of COSCO and privatisation fund TAIPED officially signed the port deal’s final agreement.According to CCTV English, Premier Keqiang added that he hoped together they would shape Piraeus Port into a world-class port and logistics centre of the region.The agreement with COSCO was one of nine to be discussed during the visit, and covered increased bilateral cooperation in the areas of tourism, science and technology, investments and cultural programs.Proposals put forward by Greece included Chinese participation in tenders for the Thriasio Freight Center and Crete’s Kasteli Airport, including shipyard building in Greece; investment in Greece’s banking sector; assistance to create a research and development centre in Greece; along with investment in tourism infrastructure, and the introduction of direct flights between Athens and Beijing.Expanding Greek agricultural and food exports to China is also on the cards, a prospect Keqiang said the largely exporting nation would be open to “as along as they are quality goods”.Further cementing the success of the trip, talks have already commenced regarding the creation of a bilateral committee to help oversee progress on each agreement. The two leaders weren’t only on the same page when it came to bilateral cooperation however, but also on matters of style. “I didn’t manage to export tie-less dressing to Europe but I did to China,” said Tsipras, after observing the Chinese leader also opted for a casual approach to the suit. A good omen perhaps. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Did Golfweeks Noose Editor Deserve To Be Fired

first_imgDid he deserve to be fired for “trying to be provacative”? Leave your answers/rationale in the comments below. Golfweek fired its editor earlier today, less than a week after publishing a noose on its cover. The noose was an attempt to illustrate a story on the racially-insensitive remarks made by a Golf Channel announcer about Tiger Woods. The anchor, Kelly Tilghman, suggested on-air that Woods’ rivals “lynch him in a back alley.” She was later suspended.”We apologize for creating this graphic cover that received extreme negative reaction from consumers, subscribers and advertisers across the country,” William P. Kupper Jr., president of Turnstile Publishing Co., the parent company of Golfweek, said in a statement. “We were trying to convey the controversial issue with a strong and provocative graphic image. It is now obvious that the overall reaction to our cover deeply offended many people. For that, we are deeply apologetic.”Representatives for Woods called it a “non-issue.” The PGA Tour, which had threatened to pull their ads from the magazine, told me that “Golfweek’s decisions around its editorial leadership to be purely an internal Golfweek matter and we have no further comment.”last_img read more

Malick, whose “Tree of Life” won the Palme d’Or in 2011, returned to the French festival with a movie whose title could double for a description of the seldom-seen director himself: “A Hidden Life.”The film, based on the true story of an Austrian conscientious objector to Adolf Hitler’s army in World War II, premiered Sunday night in Cannes where Malick was, in fact, in attendance. Though he eluded the festival’s red carpet photographers, a tuxedoed Malick was given a warm standing ovation following the film. The filmmaker — whom TMZ (not known for the most refined taste in film) has called “a Hollywood Bigfoot” — was even caught in a handful of photographs that quickly circulated on social media.Perhaps that made some in the Cannes press corps hopeful that Malick would show up at the film’s press conference Monday, too. After all, the reclusive Jean-Luc Godard called in to talk to reporters on FaceTime last year . But the lone representatives for the film — stars August Diehl and Valerie Pachner — had no response to shouts about Malick’s whereabouts other than: “We don’t know!”The more exciting reveal for critics, anyway, was “A Hidden Life.” The film is about Franz Jagerstatter (Diehl), who refused to fight for the Nazis. When he’s imprisoned, his wife (Pachner) raises their three daughters alone while tending to their alpine farm on a lush mountainside.“A Hidden Life,” which runs about three hours, was hailed by some critics as the director’s best film in years, perhaps since “The Tree of Life.” In some critical quarters, Malick’s more recent output — including “To the Wonder,” ”Knight of Cups” and “Song to Song” — have grown too full of performative bliss, and lack the cohesion of earlier films like “The New World” and “The Thin Red Line.”While “A Hidden Life” may not win back many who have strayed from Malick’s flock, its majesty is more grounded in a linear narrative, one deeply rooted in spirituality and faith. IndieWire called it a “lucid and profoundly defiant portrait of faith in crisis.” Variety called it “an epic return to form.”Fox Searchlight acquired “A Hidden Life” shortly after its premiere.As is often the case with Malick’s productions, the film was shot years before finally seeing the light of day. Diehl and Pachner said they, too, patiently awaited updates on its post-production progress.“It seems to not be a linear process this editing. It’s more like circles,” said Pachner. “We talked to Terry and the editors throughout those two and a half years, and they’d always be like: ‘It’s so good you didn’t see it already because now it’s so different now and it’s so much better now.’”The passage of time was enough to see several of its actors, Bruno Ganz and Michael Nyqvist, pass away in the interim. But Diehl said the arrival of “A Hidden Life” is timely.“The person who says, ‘No’ — this is getting more and more rare in our whole world. We’re all jumping on one train and saying, ‘Yes, that’s the world now. We have to go with it,’” said Diehl. “If there would be more people like this, especially right now in Europe with all the political developments, it would maybe be a solution. Maybe that’s a bridge to our days.”Diehl pointed to the rise of the far-right in Europe and elsewhere as a further connection to “A Hidden Life.” Later this week, elections to the European Parliament will be held in 28 countries.“It is time to stand up against all this right-wing development in the whole of Europe. It’s going a very wrong way,” said Diehl. “We all have our private choices to make. Our voice counts, I think. Each voice.”___Follow AP Film Writer Jake Coyle on Twitter at: Coyle, The Associated Press Actors August Diehl, left, and Valerie Pachner pose for photographers upon arrival at the premiere of the film ‘A Hidden Life’ at the 72nd international film festival, Cannes, southern France, Sunday, May 19, 2019.
