“Kindly don’t patronise India”, Indian ambassador gives a befitting reply to the Dutch ambassador
Vishwa Thacker – Mumbai Uncensored, 6th May 2022
On February 24, 2022, Russia carried out an all-in invasion of Ukraine. The following day, when a majority of countries voted against Russia, India chose to abstain from voting. India pointed out that the option allowed the country to find a middle ground, bridge the gap and inculcate dialogue and diplomacy.
On May 6, TS Tirumurti, the Permanent Representative of India criticised Karel van Oosterom, the ambassador of the Dutch for repeatedly patronising India since it refrained from voting against Russia during the Russia-Ukraine war at the UNSC or the United Nations Security Council.
Addressing the situation, TS Tirumurti said that India does not support the vast destruction and remains deeply disturbed by the turn of events between the two countries. He added that India has always urged to call for an immediate cessation of such destruction. He remarked, “No solution can ever arrive at the cost of human lives”.
As Russia carried out its full-scale invasion, S Tirumurti spoke at UNSC on the situation. He said, “Ever since the commencement of the conflict in Ukraine, India has been consistently calling for the complete cessation of hostilities and for pursuing the path of dialogue and diplomacy is the only way out.”
At the council, he even remarked on the humanitarian supplies India has been sending to Ukraine in good faith including essential items for relief and medicines. He requested the council not to politicise the deeds India has done for the good of Ukraine.
As soon as the Indian ambassador tweeted the statement of India in a transcript, Karel van Oosterom commented, shaming India for the decision of abstaining from its vote against Russia. “You should not have abstained in the GA. Respect the UN Charter”, he wrote. To this, S Tirumurti gave a befitting reply and kindly asked the Dutch ambassador not to “patronise” India, because “we know what to do”.
Meanwhile, it has been 72 days since the commencement of the war between Russia and Ukraine.
USA’s toxic spill case after train cars derailment in Ohio: Negligence or crime?
Arpita Sarkar, Mumbai Uncensored, 20th February, 2023:
Feb 3, 2023 is yet another day marked in history as the so called cherbony 2 disaster day. The incident occurred in east Palastine, Ohio after train derailment happened and fire broke out.
50 train cars carrying chemicals primarily vinyl chloride was spilled in air resulting in black plume casting an ominous shadow all over the town.
What makes the spill of vinyl chloride of more concern is it being a highly flammable and carcinogenic gas used mainly for PVC that is used in plastic and is byproducts of cigarette smoke. It can be linked to liver cancer, leukemia and lung cancer.
Emergency crews were called to control the release of vinyl chloride because the derailment itself set afire. Besides, burning of vinyl chloride caused huge plumes of black smoke high into the sky.
The incident not being reported by mainstream media was highly criticized by the locals of the USA. Many humans and wildlife were impacted followed by pets were found ill and fish floating in creeks.
Representatives of Northfolk Southern Railway company’s three more derailment accidents came to light which now raises the regulation authority’s safety norms. Report shows about 10 to 20 derailment cases cause spilling of toxic substances happen annually among 1000 of such derailment cases.
Lawsuits have been filed and pollution control regulatory needs are highly looked forward by people.
China’s Balloon spotted in the sky by US: Threat or a simple weather forecast balloon?
Arpita Sarkar, Mumbai Uncensored, 20th February, 2023:
A US meteorologist tracked the route of the balloon spotted in sky based on a model used to track the spread of pollutants. Weather analysts take into account the wind patterns and it shows trajectory from China across the Pacific Ocean, entering Alaska, Canada then the US. The balloon was seen lingering in Montana which the officials believe the location of Malmstrom Air Force Base that house the intercontinental missiles.
Later the US military shot the balloon and it was believed to spot the military sites which of Couse it will do with its devices. However, Bejing insisted that it was a weather platform that has blown away. Earlier almost octagonal shaped objects were brought down with strings attached to it. In a press conference of White House it was said that it did not pose any danger to humans but could be a threat to aircrafts and so it was shot.
It is likely to be filled with Helium with solar panels to provide power. Besides, it has got instruments like cameras, radar and sensors to collect data that could be used for science or surveillance military for various reasons.
Clearly, this was a violation of US air space and the international law and a question regarding the national security comes into focus. Washington says Bejing has blown surveillance balloons to over 40 countries.
Disney to restructure, cut 7,000 jobs for $5.5 billion savings
Payel Halder, Mumbai Uncensored, 11th February, 2023:
Walt Disney Co. announced on Wednesday that it would be undergoing a restructuring under CEO Bob Iger, which will result in the cutting of 7,000 jobs. The goal of the restructuring is to save $5.5 billion in costs and make the streaming business more profitable. The layoffs represent around 3.6% of Disney’s global workforce.
In a statement, a spokesperson for activist investor Nelson Peltz’s Trian Group said, “We are pleased that Disney is listening.” Peltz had been critical of Disney for overspending on streaming, but the company’s recent moves, including the promise to reinstate a dividend for shareholders, have addressed some of those concerns.
Under the restructuring plan, Disney will reorganize into three segments: an entertainment unit encompassing film, television, and streaming; a sports-focused ESPN unit; and Disney parks, experiences, and products. CEO Bob Iger said in a conference call, “This reorganization will result in a more cost-effective, coordinated approach to our operations. We are committed to running efficiently, especially in a challenging environment.” Iger also added that streaming remained Disney’s top priority and the company would focus more on its core brands and franchises.
CFO Christine McCarthy said that the initial dividend would likely be a “small fraction” of the pre-COVID level and would increase over time. Iger also said that he would ask the board to restore the shareholder dividend by the end of the year.
Disney plans to cut $2.5 billion in sales and general administrative expenses and other operating costs, and an additional $3 billion in savings would come from reductions in non-sports content, including the layoffs.
For the fiscal first quarter ending on December 31, Disney reported adjusted earnings per share of 99 cents, ahead of the average analyst estimate of 78 cents, according to Refinitiv data. Net income came in at $1.279 billion, below analyst estimates, while revenue hit $23.512 billion, ahead of Wall Street estimates of $23.4 billion.
This restructuring marks a new chapter in Iger’s leadership, who first took the role of CEO in 2005. He has since acquired several powerful entertainment brands, including Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Entertainment, and Lucasfilm. He also repositioned the company to capitalize on the streaming revolution, acquiring 21st Century Fox’s film and television assets in 2019 and launching the Disney+ streaming service that same year. Iger returned to the role of CEO in November 2022.
Now, Iger will be seeking to put Disney’s streaming business on a path to growth and profitability, and the new structure will allow for the company’s creative leaders to have more control over decision-making, including what movies and series to make and how the content will be distributed and marketed. This is Disney’s third restructuring in five years, with previous restructure taking place in 2018 and 2020. The last time Disney made cuts was during the height of the pandemic in November 2020, resulting in the layoff of 32,000 workers, primarily at its theme parks. These cuts took place in the first half of fiscal 2021.
