BRICS to Develop – Putin

Russia will push for the BRICS bloc of countries, which also includes Brazil, India, China and South Africa, to develop a coordinated stance on global affairs, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said.
“When the BRICS ‘five’ really gets going, its influence on the global economy and politics will be quite significant,” Putin wrote in a campaign article on foreign policy in Moskovskie Novosti published on Monday. Putin, 59, plans to return to the Kremlin after the presidential elections next month.
BRICS, which has a combined population of 3 billion people and is responsible for more than 25 percent of the world’s GDP, will have to work together more closely in the United Nations, Putin said.
He added that Russia will continue to prioritize its relations with the bloc, which he called “the most telling symbol of transferring from a uni-polar to a more just world order.”

Naresh --

As you may have noticed, we've asked you for a donation a few times now.

But according to our records, you haven't yet made an online donation to this campaign at this email address. (If our records are wrong, I apologize and thank you!)

I'm not writing to ask you for money again. I'm actually writing to ask your opinion about why you haven't given, and what you think would inspire you or other Obama supporters like you to decide to take the leap and donate.

We have two quick questions for you. Can you take a minute to answer them?

There's a good reason we're asking for your feedback: The kind of organization we all decided to be a part of only works if people like you pitch in to build it.

It's also the reason no other candidate has been able to match our level of grassroots support. This isn't the easiest way to run a campaign -- but we know it's the right way.

That's why we want to know what y…

Paswan backs Katju on media freedom "violation" in Bihar
Backing the PCI chairman over his remarks on media freedom in Bihar, LJP chief Ram Bilas Paswan on Sunday made a scathing attack on Chief Minister Nitish Kumar saying those who claim to have fought press censorship during Emergency are now undermining freedom of the fourth estate.

"We welcome what PCI Chairman Justice Markandey Katju has said. He has brought the reality of Bihar government before the people," Paswan said alleging that mediamen are not free to express their views openly in Nitish Kumar's regime. He said that a delegation of Lok Janshakti Party will also meet President Pratibha Patil shortly over the issue of "violation of media freedom" in Bihar.

Lahiri, who emerged triumphant on the first play-off hole, became the first Indian to win the SAIL-SBI Open. Anirban Lahiri (65-69-67-73) and Prom Meesawat (72-64-68-70) had ended the regulation 72 holes with matching totals of 14 under 274 after Lahiri had fired a one over 73, punctuated by four birdies and five bogeys, and Meesawat shot a two under 70 in the final round. The two players thus headed for a play-off on the 18th hole. Prom, who had overcome a three-shot deficit to take a share of the lead with Lahiri from the 16th hole in regulation play, hit his tee shot at the first play-off hole into the bushes on the right. He had to take a penalty because of an unplayable lie and played the third shot to…
