Twix progress and pursuit of happiness

first_img‘Good Morning Mumbai’ chants RJ Jahnvi (Bollywood actress Vidya Balan) in her unique style to her radio audience in the iconic Raju Hirani film ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’. After the chant comes a long poetic message essentially themed on the perils of a hyper-urban life, that has taken away the charm of yesteryears. Here are a couple of sentences that will resonate with many of us, “Serial ke kirdaro ka sara haal ha maloom, par maa ka haal poochne ki fursat kaha ha; mobile, landline sab ki bharmaar ha, magar jigri dost tak pohoche aise taar kaha ha” (One is updated with all characters in their favourite television series, but is too busy to have a relaxed conversation with their mother; One is flooded with internet and telecommunication technology but is still distant from the closest friends). In his own way, Raju Hirani does capture the essence of the side effects of so-called ‘economic growth and technological progress’. Don’t get me wrong, I am no Luddite who is dismissing the gains of all technological and economic progress that has done so much good to humankind. I am only trying to analyse the un-quantifiable side effects of the new normal and share some insights from this evolution. Also Read – A special kind of bond Progress and utility maximisation If we take a step back and analyse the scale and speed of economic and technological progress we have made, it is breathtaking. From using a human messenger to facebook messenger, and from horsebacks to hatchbacks, we have come a long way. At the click of a button, one can connect with anyone and order almost anything. With enhanced economic resources, luxuries of yesterday have become necessities of today – think telephones, air travel, internet, etc. When I talk progress, I am not restricting myself to the 21st century but willing to go way back in time. However, I am confining myself to individual desires and not social needs. The individual desire to accumulate monetary and non-monetary resources to maximise one’s utility lies at the heart of my analysis. Also Read – Insider threat managementWhat is maximising utility? Let me explain. All individuals work towards gathering resources to maximise their individual utilities. For instance, one strives to earn more money to enjoy a better lifestyle and quality of life. Those with scooters aim for cars, those with smaller houses aim for bigger ones, and so on. As this process has evolved over the centuries, it has done a lot of good, both for individuals and society – in the short and long term. For instance, it has helped advance medical sciences and improved lifetimes. It has made people more aware so that they can take more informed decisions. Although, one change that seems to be visible is that individual preferences and priorities have evolved. The composition of utility has changed for most people – it has expanded its scope and is expanding as we speak. In an era of slow technological and economic progress, the number of items that were enough for utility maximisation was much less. A good house with a car was more or less sufficient for one to feel that life is good. Now, a lot more is needed. A good house, a car, an annual vacation, expensive phone, and the list goes on. The examples I have given are relevant for the middle-class but change the objects and their sizes, and it applies to all classes. In play: Maslow’s Hierarchy and Prisoner’s Dilemma Abraham Maslow articulated the idea of a hierarchy of needs. From Wikipedia: “Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is used to study how humans intrinsically partake in behavioural motivation. Maslow used the terms “physiological”, “safety”, “belonging and love”, “social needs” or “esteem”, and “self-actualisation” to describe the pattern through which human motivations generally move [from former to latter]. This means that for motivation to occur at the next level, each level must be satisfied within the individual themselves. Each of these individual levels contains a certain amount of internal sensation that must be met for an individual to complete their hierarchy.” Now I think that Maslow’s theory is still relevant, however, the movement from one level to the other has slowed as economic and technological progress has speeded up. This means that the journey towards ‘self-actualisation’ has become much longer. With this inference, I have a prediction to make that as humans continue to scale new heights of technology and accumulate economic wealth like never before, the journey towards ‘self-actualisation’ or ‘fulfilment’ or more simply ‘happiness’ will become longer and many more people (in comparison to the past) will be unable to complete it. Why do I say so? Because I see a clear case of prisoner’s dilemma in action. For those who aren’t well versed with the term, here’s a quick snapshot from Investopedia – “The prisoner’s dilemma is a paradox in decision analysis in which two individuals acting in their own self-interests do not produce the optimal outcome. The typical prisoner’s dilemma is set up in such a way that both parties choose to protect themselves at the expense of the other participant. As a result, both participants find themselves in a worse state than if they had cooperated with each other in the decision-making process.” Now let’s think about economic and material progress in a prisoner’s dilemma context. The dominant strategy for any individual in the society is to work hard and gather material gains. An individual with a house wants a bigger one, with one car wants two cars, and so on. This is irrespective of what society does. No one will stop as material gains offer clear tangible benefits – not just in terms of luxuries, but also the affordability of basic needs such as healthcare and education. Now, as we discussed earlier that due to economic and technological progress, the scope of things required for an individual to get satisfaction has expanded, hence, an individual will keep working towards them. When all individuals do so, the outcome is sub-optimal i.e., overall happiness levels in the society are much lower. Hence, economic and technological progress has started a self-propelling cycle, while inadvertently elongating the journey towards happiness and fulfilment. Other side effects of progress and what lies ahead The other side effect of this phenomenon is that people have become busier for their own selves. This is a natural by-product because there are so many more ‘things to do’ to satisfy one’s individual needs before someone gets happiness and moves on to satisfy one’s social needs. Thus, utility from taking exams and attending office meetings have taken over family get-togethers and community relationships. Moreover, accomplishments that were supposed to end in themselves have been transformed into tools that support the cause of further accumulating material gains. Take, for example, the purchase of a car. A car at one time was a luxury reserved for the rich and aspiration to buy it was in itself enough to drive people to work towards it. Buying a car meant buying happiness. People did work and many ended up buying a car but now it is a necessity for many, and no longer serves as a source of happiness. So, a car now becomes a tool to let’s say buy a fancier car, and the cycle goes on for almost all material items. While there are multiple ways that can help break the prisoner’s dilemma aka the inverse relationship between progress and the journey for happiness, given the complexities in our world, I doubt if there’s any silver bullet. A future with even faster economic growth and technological progress lies ahead of us. Yes, it will solve many problems and make lives better on so many noble and quantifiable parameters but it will also increase the distance for individuals to reach the ultimate goal of happiness and fulfilment.

IDBI Bank Q1 loss widens to Rs 3801 crore

first_imgMumbai: Life Insurance of Corporation of India (LIC)-owned IDBI Bank net losses widen to Rs 3,801 crore in the quarter ended June on higher provision for NPAs. The bank had reported a net loss of Rs 2,410 crore in the same quarter of the last year. “As we had to make higher provisions for NPA there was a net loss of Rs 3,801 crore during the quarter,” its managing director and chief executive Rakesh Sharma told reporters. Its provision for NPAs stood at Rs 7,009 crore as against Rs 4,603 crore in the year-ago period. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal”There were two accounts worth over Rs 2,000 crore from the power sector-owned by Navratna company that RBI had asked us to downgrade and because of that some additional Rs 1,200 crore of provision we had to make. We are quite sure that these two accounts will be upgraded within a year or so,” Sharma said. Total provision stood at Rs 4,752 crore as against Rs 3,491 crore. Net interest margin were at 2.13 per cent as against 2.17 per cent.

I love what i do and i love you guys so much ❤️ pic.twitter.com/dmIHCtFc7z— Shawn Mendes (@ShawnMendes) November 26, 2018As for his relationship with Baldwin, who recently got married to Justin Bieber, the singer reveals that they had been something more than friends.“I don’t even wanna put a title on it. I think it was more of a zone of limbo,” Mendes says. “I texted Hailey [after her engagement], ‘Congratulations,’ and I really am happy for them. She’s still one of the f**king coolest people ever — she’s not just a beautiful person visually but she’s one of the most beautiful hearts I’ve ever met.” Canadian singer Shawn Mendes often feels like he has to prove he’s straight, even though he knows there’s nothing wrong with being gay.But the 20-year-old is now calling out his depiction in a candid new interview with Rolling Stone in which he opens up about his sexuality, as well as his past relationship with Hailey Baldwin.“In the back of my heart, I feel like I need to go be seen with someone — like a girl — in public, to prove to people that I’m not gay,” Mendes admits. “Even though in my heart I know that it’s not a bad thing. There’s still a piece of me that thinks that. And I hate that side of me.”Addressing the speculation surrounding his sexuality online, Mendes adds, “I thought, ‘You f**king guys are so lucky I’m not actually gay and terrified of coming out.’ That’s something that kills people. That’s how sensitive it is. Do you like the songs? Do you like me?

#Alerte7mar to Denounce Bad Parking Practices in Morocco

Taroudant – A controversial initiative has gone viral on Twitter under the hashtag #Alerte7mar (“Alert donkey” in Moroccan Arabic), calling upon social media users to post photos of cars parked in inappropriate spots.Although its hashtag may seem offensive to some because of the rude connotation of the word “donkey,” the initiative aims to raise awareness about the good practices of using the road and parking spaces.The initiative urges people to post photos of badly parked cars on social networks to encourage their owners to stop parking illegally. Social media users have responded to the call, posting pictures  of hundreds of badly parked cars, including cars occupying pedestrian pavements or even public squares.#Alerte7mar #Alerte7mara we need more than this for #l7mir— hanane ghandour (@ghanane) January 17, 2016The organizers of the initiative warned the owners of cars that don’t respect the rules of the road and good parking practices to find their cars on social media network websites with derogatory statements.Social media users have intentionally posted the photos of badly parked cars without blurring their license plates in order “to reprimand the owners,” and embarrass them so that they “respect the law.”#Alerte7mar riche et 7mar pic.twitter.com/iIfOHOLzOY— Lost (@Real_Black_Cat) January 15, 2016The organizers said that the hashtag is not a call for citizens to “substitute themselves for law enforcement authorities,” but an initiative to raise awareness of the bad practices of some drivers.#Alerte7mar nos 2 abrutis du dimanche sont ci-dessous!

Mali becomes first African nation to agree to imprison ICC convicts

The agreement was signed by Fatoumata Dembele Diarra, the First Vice-President of the ICC, and Soumeylou Boubeye Maiga, Mali’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, in the West African country’s capital, Bamako, last week. “The enforcement of sentences is a crucial element of a well-functioning justice system, and the ICC is grateful to every State party that expresses its willingness to accept persons convicted by the Court,” said Ms. Diarra.“This agreement with Mali – the first to be signed by an African State – is particularly significant considering the principle enshrined in the Statute and Rules of the ICC that States parties should share the responsibility for enforcing sentences of imprisonment, in accordance with principles of equitable geographical distribution.”The Rome Statute, the founding treaty of the ICC, provides that sentences handed down by judges “shall be served in a State designated by the Court from a list of States which have indicated to the Court their willingness to accept sentenced persons.”In addition to the agreement with Mali, the ICC has signed agreements on the enforcement of sentences with the Governments of Austria, United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Serbia and Colombia.The ICC is the first permanent, treaty-based, international court established to help end impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of concern to the international community, namely war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide.The Court currently has seven situations under investigation, all of them in Africa: Central African Republic (CAR), Côte d’Ivoire, the Darfur region of western Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Kenya, Libya and Uganda. 20 January 2012Mali has become the first African country to conclude an agreement to enforce sentences of imprisonment handed down by the International Criminal Court (ICC), it was announced today. read more

Security Council condemns war crimes committed by Lords Resistance Army

Issuing presidential statement the Council urged the United Nations Office for Central Africa (UNOCA), the UN political and peacekeeping missions in the region, and the Organization’s other relevant presences, to enhance their support for the implementation of the UN Regional Strategy to address the threat and impact of the activities of the LRA. It called on the international community to support the implementation of the Strategy where possible.The LRA, notorious for carrying out massacres in villages, mutilating its victims and abducting boys for use as child soldiers and forcing girls into sexual slavery, was formed in the 1980s in Uganda and for over 15 years its attacks were mainly directed against Ugandan civilians and security forces, which in 2002 dislodged it. It then exported its activities to Uganda’s neighbours, such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Central African Republic (CAR) and South Sudan.The 15-member body reiterated its strong support for the African Union Regional Cooperation Initiative against the LRA, commending the “significant” progress by the African Union Regional Task Force. It urged all regional Governments to fulfil their commitments under the Initiative and provide basic provisions for their security forces.Welcoming steps taken to deliver an enhanced, comprehensive and “more regional” approach to the humanitarian situation, the Council underlined the primary responsibility of States in the LRA-affected region to protect civilians. In that context, it welcomed efforts by the DRC, South Sudan, Uganda and the CAR, in coordination with the African Union, to end the LRA threat, urging additional efforts from those countries, as well as others in the region.Further, the Council expressed serious concern that the increased security vacuum in the CAR continued to negatively affect counter-LRA operations. As LRA attacks have reportedly taken place outside the Task Force’s principal area of operations, it emphasized the need for strong coordination among the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in the Central African Republic (BINUCA), the Task Force, and the African-led International Support Mission in the Central African Republic (MISCA) in the context of protecting civilian activities and counter-LRA operations.Regionally, the Council encouraged the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO) to reinforce efforts to address the LRA through improved responsiveness to imminent civilian threats, training and capacity-building of the Forces Armées de la République Démocratique du Congo (FARDC) and implementation of the disarmament, demobilization, repatriation, reintegration, and resettlement programme to encourage further LRA defections.In addition, the Council urged MONUSCO and the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) to enhance their cooperation with the Regional Task Force to coordinate operations, patrols and protection of civilians strategies, and to provide logistical support within their existing mandates and resources. It took note of reports of an LRA base in the disputed enclave of Kafia Kinga, on the border of the Central African Republic, and between South Sudan and Sudan. read more

More than 370 arrests made at Notting Hill Carnival

Performers in costume take part in the carnivalCredit:DANIEL LEAL-OLIVAS/AFP Performers in costume take part in the carnival “However Monday night was marred by the news of a non-life-threatening stabbing at around 8.10pm in Ladbroke Grove. Thankfully this was the only incident of this nature throughout the whole weekend.”He added: “I am very pleased with the results of the screening arches and the Section 60 order; 36 offensive weapons were taken off the streets by my officers and 373 arrests were made over the course of the weekend, which we expect could rise. “Although I am happy with how the event ran overall, once again 30 of my colleagues were injured in the line of duty. Any assault on police is unacceptable.” Officers detained 156 people on drugs offences, 69 on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and nine on suspicion of sexual offences.Among the items seized were knives, a metal pole and a taser.Last year some 313 arrests were carried out.Notting Hill Carnival Gold Commander Dave Musker said: “We would like to thank all those who took to the streets to celebrate everything that the carnival stands for, in a kind and considerate manner. Police made more than 370 arrests at Notting Hill Carnival over the bank holiday weekend.Monday night was “marred” by the only stabbing of the event, with a male receiving non-life-threatening injuries at around 8.10pm in Ladbroke Grove.Scotland Yard said 30 officers were injured “in the line of duty”.As of 10.15pm on Monday, the Metropolitan Police said it made 240 arrests on the bank holiday and 133 on Sunday, which included 10 made by the British Transport Police (BTP).A further 12 arrests were carried out by BTP on Monday. Scotland Yard imposed a Section 60 order across the carnival area between 9am and 11.59pm. The order allowed officers to search people if they believed they were carrying offensive weapons or in anticipation of violence.The bank holiday weekend event was policed by the highest number of officers in six years.Almost 7,000, some from the Metropolitan Police’s newly formed Violent Crime Task Force, policed Monday’s event to “combat the threat of violent crime”.After a wave of violent crime in the capital in recent months, Scotland Yard announced knife arches had been placed at “strategic points” along the route to help reassure people about their safety, though officials did not disclose where. On both Sunday and Monday, the carnival fell silent as thousands of people paid tribute to Grenfell Tower victims.At 3pm, revellers marked 72 seconds of silence in memory of the 72 people who died following the fire in June last year.The tower block is within half a mile of the parade route.Police were operating with enhanced stop-and-search powers in a bid to crack down on violence.

Near infrared minerals analysis new PANalytical website content

first_imgPANalytical has added a new segment to the mining applications section of its website called Minerals Analysis. In this section it has included, and will continue to add, content that highlights minerals that have spectrally active features in the near infrared (NIR), making them ideally suited for the rapid, precise mineral analysis of the TerraSpec 4 mineral analyser.The minerals and applications that have been added so far are:In the exploration of bauxite, the ability to identify, and quantify, the alumina content of bauxite is crucial to defining the bauxite grade. This is important to determine whether or not the deposit will be profitable. Because bauxite minerals are spectrally active in the near infrared, NIR spectroscopy provides a valuable tool in bauxite exploration.NIR technology can easily discern the key bauxite suite minerals in the mining process, including successfully quantifying the problem minerals that affect the Bayer and Hall-Héroult processes to refine and convert bauxite into aluminium. Other technologies such as x-ray florescence (XRF) and atomic absorption spectroscopy cannot do so as easily.Oil sands are very different from conventional oil and natural gas deposits as oil sands are a mixture of bitumen, water, quartz, clay and other gangue minerals. Clays and other minerals, and constituents like moisture, are easily analysed by NIR analysers such as the TerraSpec 4 mineral analyser. This technology can bring oil sands extraction companies one step closer to conquering problem constituents like water and clays, and generate greater amounts of synthetic crude in bitumen production.Nickel is one of the most abundant metals found on Earth, the main sources of which are sulphide and lateritic ore deposits. Because lateritic ore deposits have spectrally active features in the NIR region, NIR spectroscopy provides a valuable tool in the nickel mining process, from nickel exploration and characterization through the concentration and smelting of the finished ore product.last_img read more

MinQuestKlondex continue successful work at Fire Creek gold property

first_imgMinQuest Inc. (MQI) has become a full service mineral exploration management company actively working throughout North America. A recent success is its management of Klondex Mines’ Fire Creek property in central Nevada, USA. MinQuest discovered and defined high-grade gold veining at Fire Creek, which is a Midas style gold deposit currently containing an Indicated Resource of 1.65 Moz of gold (NI 43-101 compliant) and still growing.The company is headquartered in Reno Nevada where the co-owners, Richard Kern and Herb Duerr live. Both founders are long-time exploration geologists, each having discovered numerous minable gold, silver, and copper deposits in their respective careers. The company is incorporated as a Nevada S-Corporation. Over the last 25-years, MQI’s principals have evaluated several thousand potential mineral properties. MinQuest currently holds rights to +40 mineral exploration properties containing approximately 2,900 unpatented mining claims.Klondex owns and operates the Fire Creek Project in north central Nevada, a low-sulphidation high-grade, epithermal vein deposit in the Northern Nevada Rift. Klondex is operating an ongoing bulk sampling program, and shipping all mineralised material to its Midas Mill, 180 km to the north. Klondex filed its Preliminary Feasibility Study on the Fire Creek project, on March 17, 2015 with an effective date of December 31, 2014. (Fire Creek is located in Lander County near the centre of the Battle Mountain gold belt in Crescent Valley, approximately 16 km northwest of the massive Pipeline deposit of Barrick (7 Moz) and 8 km southeast of the Mule Canyon deposits of Newmont (3 Moz). All of this mineralisation exists in volcanics within the trend in Crescent Valley that runs south as far as Buckhorn (Barrick). For much of its history, Fire Creek was considered to be a low-grade, high tonnage ‘Carlin’ type open pit deposit. However geologic data in the late 1980s from the nearby Midas and Mule Canyon deposits suggested Fire Creek was more likely a deeper, higher-grade epithermal deposit.last_img read more

US urges China to take action against North Korea

first_imgPresident Donald Trump speaks about signing executive orders on trade policies in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, DC. Photo: AFPPresident Donald Trump warned in an interview published Sunday that the United States is prepared to act unilaterally to deal with North Korea’s nuclear program if China proves unwilling to help.“Well, if China is not going to solve North Korea, we will. That is all I am telling you,” he said in an interview with the Financial Times of London.Trump’s comments come ahead of his meeting Thursday and Friday with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the US president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.Tensions have risen sharply as North Korea has stepped up ballistic missile tests and amid boasts by leader Kim Jong-un that his country was in the final stages of developing an intercontinental ballistic missile.US-based analysts have warned that North Korea appears to be preparing a new nuclear test. It has staged five nuclear tests so far, two last year.“China has great influence over North Korea. And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t,” Trump told the Financial Times. “If they do, that will be very good for China, and if they don’t, it won’t be good for anyone.”In a separate interview, US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the United States is looking to China to take action against North Korea.“The only country that can stop North Korea is China and they know that,” Haley told ABC’s “This Week” in an interview broadcast on Sunday. “We’re going to continue to put pressure on China to have action.”The Mar-a-Lago meeting will be the two leaders’ first face-to-face encounter.On Thursday, Trump predicted a “very difficult” summit with Xi, noting the disputes over trade policy between the world’s two most powerful nations and leading economies.But Haley emphasized that at the Florida meeting “the most important conversation will be how we’re going to be dealing with the nonproliferation of North Korea.”Beijing, increasingly frustrated with Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile activities, has announced a suspension of all coal imports from the North until the end of the year.Haley deemed that measure—which was in keeping with UN sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear program and missile program—insufficient, saying that coal is “going in other ways.”“At some point, we need to see definitive actions by China condemning North Korea and not just calling them out for it,” she said.Since taking office, Trump has left open the possibility of military action against North Korea.Following that country’s early March missile tests, which came provocatively close to Japan, the US leader emphasized his administration’s commitment to “deter and defend against North Korea’s ballistic missiles using the full range of United States military capabilities.”Former US defense secretary Ash Carter, who served under Barack Obama, said the US has “always had all options on the table.”Also speaking on ABC, he recalled that the United States drew up a “preemptive strike plan” in 1994 to knock out North Korea’s Yongbyon reactor, during a confrontation over its nuclear program.“We have those options,” he said. “We shouldn’t take them off the table.”But he said a US strike on North Korea would likely trigger a North Korean attempt to invade South Korea.“This is a war that would have an intensity of violence associated with it that we haven’t seen since the last Korean War,” he said.“Seoul is right there on the borders of the DMZ, so even though the outcome is certain, it is a very destructive war. And so one needs to proceed very carefully here.”He said Washington should continue to pressure China to lean on North Korea, but he was not optimistic that would lead to anything.Beijing fears a potential North Korean collapse, which would result in “a unified Korea allied with the United States on their border,” Carter said.last_img read more

Travel writing may change but will never die

first_imgIts demise was predicted back in the 1930s but it endured, and even in our day, despite the Internet and Google Maps allowing us to access any part of the world virtually on our devices, travel writing will stay as the best window into other cultures, says a panel of travelogue writers.Travel writing “is one of the most ancient forms of literature, predating the novel by thousands of years and a form that has appeared simultaneously and independently throughout the world”, said writer William Dalrymple as he kicked off The Travel Session, featuring legendary travel writer Colin Thubron, Anthony Sattin, and Gerard Russell among others, at the final day of the Jaipur Literature Festival on Monday. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Thubron, who has over half a century experience of travel to exotic and rarely-frequented (then) places across Europe and Asia after chronicling his first journey in Mirror to Damascus (1967) – the one such work on the Syrian capital in over a 100 years, contended that the end of travel writing was predicted in the 1930s, but “it refused to die”. Internet, Google Maps may have allowed people to virtually plot the entire globe and view from the comforts of one’s home, but he maintained that “the feeling of being in the place is different to seeing it on the desktop” and expressed confidence that although different generations might approach travel differently, the impulse for adventure remained the same.

Tunisia tourism may be crippled by European warnings

first_imgFILE – In this June 28 2015 file photo, mounted police officers patrol on the beach of Sousse, Tunisia. The blood on the sand has washed away, but the damage wreaked on Tunisia by a few terrifying minutes of gunfire at a beach resort will be deep and lasting. The tourist economy is likely to be gutted: Up to 2 million hotel nights per year are expected to be lost, hastened by warnings from Britain and other European governments last week that their citizens are no longer safe on . (AP Photo/Abdeljalil Bounhar, File) TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — The blood on the sand has washed away, but the damage inflicted on Tunisia by a few terrifying minutes of gunfire at a beach resort will be deep and lasting.The tourism industry, the lifeline for the north African country’s economy, is likely to be gutted after 38 tourists were killed in the June 26 rampage in Sousse. Up to 2 million hotel nights are expected to be lost over the next year, hastened by warnings from Britain and other European governments last week that their citizens are no longer safe on Tunisia’s shores. And Tunisia’s budding democracy — the only one to emerge from an Arab Spring uprising — is now facing its toughest test. Failure to secure the country against Islamic extremism while protecting newly won freedoms would echo across the region.A big part of the government’s challenge will be containing the economic fallout of the tourist exodus, and social unrest that might result from mass job losses in the travel industry.“This is their livelihood. It’s not just affecting us Britons coming back home. It’s affecting the whole of Tunisia itself,” said Scottish tourist Darren Blackery, drinking a beer near a pool in the resort of Hammamet and lamenting his government’s warning to leave the country. “They need to earn a living and without us, it’s very hard for them.”The Medina Belisaire Thalasso Hotel where Blackery stayed can hold up to 552 clients and is usually full at this time of the year, managers say.On Friday, there were only 31 clients. On Sunday, the last British tourists were leaving — and only 15 customers will remain. In the two weeks since the beach attack, 1,155 people have canceled their bookings. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The country’s leadership is in a tight spot. The president came under criticism from rights groups for declaring a state of emergency on July 4 that gives the government greater police powers — but then five days later, Britain said Tunisia wasn’t doing enough to secure the country.Frustrated Tunisian government officials said they were trying to respect democratic freedoms instead of carrying out authoritarian crackdowns. Critics, however, say the Tunisian government was slow to grasp the gravity of the problem.Tunisia’s president blames his country’s problems on poor security in neighboring Libya, and a lack of international resolve in targeting IS.Some in Britain have also criticized the government for telling tourists to get out, pointing out that an attack in the U.K. is also considered “highly likely,” according to a government threat assessment.Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has said that British officials would work with Tunisia on improving security and hoped to downgrade the travel advice “in the not too distant future.”While most European tourists appear to be abandoning Tunisia, a few are showing solidarity with the country whose revolution surprised the world and whose path to democracy remains an inspiration to many. “The tour operator asked us regarding our stay whether we would change or not. I know that a lot of people in the U.K. canceled. We thought about it and we decided to go ahead and come,” Scottish tourist Graeme Pringle said.“Terrorism is all over the world and wherever we go, to feel 100 percent safe is not achievable.”___Angela Charlton reported from Paris.

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Sponsored Stories Tourism employed about 400,000 people in this country of 10 million and made up about 7 percent of gross domestic product in 2014. The industry had already begun suffering after an attack on Tunisia’s leading museum in March that left 22 dead, mostly foreign tourists.The government’s investment minister warned the country will struggle to pay its international debts as tourism revenues plunge. Tunisia is expected to finish the year 49 billion dinars ($25 billion) in debt, and the Central Bank says overall growth will drop to 1.7 percent this year, down from 2.4 percent last year.Frustration at unemployment and corruption drove the original protests that led Tunisia to knock down a dictator in 2011, thereby inspiring revolutionary movements from Egypt to Syria. The frustration has continued to simmer.And now, there is the Islamic State factor. The group has claimed responsibility for the beach attack by student Seifidinne Rezgui, who was killed by police.Tunisia has seen a larger share of its population join the extremists in Syria and Iraq than any other country — primarily youth from disadvantaged provinces alienated by a messy democratic system that they feel isn’t addressing their concerns. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Similar stories are told up and down Tunisia’s Mediterranean shore, as resort entertainers seek work elsewhere and hotel managers ponder whether and when to close down.Twenty-three hotels have already shuttered since the Sousse attack, said Radhouane Ben Salah, president of the Tunisian Hotel Federation.“There are practically no European markets left,” he said. “The picture is almost black.”Camel guide Faycal Mihoub whisked a tourist group to safety during the Sousse attack, harboring some in his boss’ house. Passionate about his work and about the tourists he calls “family,” Mihoub knows only his beach livelihood. Some tourists have been coming for 40 years to the sands of the Port El-Kantaoui district of Sousse — since even before the 34-year-old Mihoub was born.Now they may no longer return.Nicknamed “Bob,” Mihoub is normally able to save about 2,500 dinars ($1,300) after working nonstop through the summer. That’s usually enough for him to live through the winter.This year, he barely worked one month before the Sousse attack threw his future employment into doubt. The area’s economy is focused on beach resorts. “For work, we never get anything in Tunisia during the winter,” he said. “It’s a touristic place, so nothing.” Top Stories Patients with chronic pain give advice Parents, stop beating yourself up 0 Comments   Share   Men’s health affects baby’s health too Mesa family survives lightning strike to homelast_img read more
