Nuevo León region rebounds from drugcartel barbarism to thriving foreign investment hub

first_imgMONTERREY, Mexico — Theattack that burned 52 people to death at a casino in an upscale neighborhood was bad. But what really scared Idalia Villafana’s customers away were the body parts once strewn across the plaza near her restaurant.Villafana, 41, says she still can’t believe that the barbarism wrought by the Zetas drug cartel has largely subsided here near Monterrey, Mexico’s third-biggest metropolis, just a few years after she’d almost given up hope for peace.For that, she can thank local business leaders who got fed up with the penetration of the legal system by criminal syndicates and helped create and fund a unique program to take back the streets. The result: Murders in this industrial hub on the steps of the Sierra Madre are at a five-year low and commerce is once again thriving.A bustling symbol of the turnaround is the factory South Korea’s Kia Motors is building for more than $1 billion not far from where the Zetas once operated a paramilitary base. That’s helped push the wider Nuevo León region, which touches Texas, past Mexico City as the national leader in pledged foreign direct investment, with another $6 billion expected this year, state officials say. The vice president of global strategy at Kia Motors, Hyung-Kun Lee, delivers a speech during an announcement in Mexico City, of the installation of a vehicle assembly plant in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico, on Aug. 27, 2014. Ronaldo Schemidt/AFPThe money is trickling down the way it should for small-business owners like Villafana, who has a contract to feed 190 of the workers from the Kia project at her modest, white-washed eatery. Villafana says she struggled to pay a single employee at the height of the violence in 2011, when the casino attack occurred. Now she has six and is struggling to keep up with demand.“We thought this would become a ghost town if things stayed the same,” Villafana says as she dips a ladle into a steaming pot of zucchini, her fingernails painted light blue. “Instead, there’s lots of work. The plant has really helped.”Mexico has been wracked by drug-related violence that’s left more than 22,000 people missing and 70,000 dead in the past eight years, including 49 headless corpses dumped en masse on the highway linking Monterrey to the United States. While the murder rate has begun to fall, President Enrique Peña Nieto has faced criticism for surges of violence in some regions, such as the abduction of 43 students in western Mexico last year by corrupt cops who allegedly handed them over to a drug gang to be killed.Monterrey, the hub of a metropolitan region of 4.2 million people, is a linchpin of Mexico’s economy, with output per capita of about $20,000 a year almost double the national average.The city’s transformation would never have been possible without wholesale changes to the law-enforcement system, which was widely seen as infested with drug money, according to Guillermo Dillón, who runs the state’s industrial chamber, a lobby group whose members include cement maker Cemex SAB and the Alfa SAB conglomerate.The tipping point came in 2008, when kidnappings reached epidemic proportions, prompting the chamber to organize a media event to urge officials to act, Dillón said in an interview.“We said we were receiving very troubling complaints from many members who were threatened by kidnappers,” Dillón said.That event helped galvanize the public and embolden other business leaders to join the charge for change, including the late Lorenzo Zambrano of Cemex and Fomento Economico Mexicano SAB’s José Antonio Fernández. As popular support for a thorough cleansing of the state police department swelled, a group of politicians, businessmen, educators and non-governmental organizations was assembled and tasked with an overriding objective: build a brand new force. Members of the Civil Police Force watch screens at the Integral Coordination Center of Control, Command, Communications and State Count (C-5) in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico, on Dec. 18, 2014. Julio César Aguilar/AFPBusinesses contributed about 50 specialists in public relations and human resources to create recruitment campaigns to attract the ideal officer — anyone who’s never been a cop. They set pay and benefits that far outstrip those in other states, such as private health insurance and scholarships for kids. Professors were brought in to help write the training manuals for the new police academy. They ran market studies to design a name and uniforms that inspire trust.Thus, Fuerza Civil, or Civil Force, was born.“It was important to have this collaboration between the private and public sectors,” Javier Trevino, a deputy education minister who was lieutenant governor of Nuevo León from 2009 to 2012, said by phone from Mexico City. “It was a good way to earn the trust of the community.”Four years on, the state’s Fuerza Civil is more than 4,000 members strong and 70 percent of Monterrey’s municipal cops have been purged. An alliance of cartels that teamed up to repel the Zetas in the state may also have helped reduce violence, according to political scientist Javier Oliva at Mexico’s National Autonomous University.The drop in crime — homicides have plunged 76 percent and car thefts 86 percent — has been so steep that violence is no longer the public’s single greatest concern, according to Pedro Torres, a security and law analyst at the Tecnologico de Monterrey university’s school of government. Spanish singer Joaquín Sabina performs during a concert in Monterrey, on May 8, 2015. Julio César Aguilar/AFPThe success of Nuevo León’s security revamp may serve as a blueprint for other states such as Jalisco, home of the country’s second-largest metropolis, Guadalajara. There, cartel gunmen recently shot down a military helicopter and erected roadblocks from burning buses and debris amid clashes with police that left at least seven people dead.As voters in Nuevo León prepare to elect a new governor next month, a rare independent candidate in a region with an entrenched two-party system, Jaime Rodríguez, is polling second. “El Bronco,” as he is known, survived two assassination attempts during the height of the violence, when he was mayor of a Monterrey suburb, and is now pledging to root out old- fashioned cronyism and graft.“Security isn’t my priority anymore,” said Osmar Dávila, a 19-year-old criminology student with a vivid memory of the shootout between cops and gang members that erupted outside his house three years ago. “It’s cleaning up the government.”With assistance from Thomas Black in Dallas.© 2015, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments Related posts:Mexico’s Peña Nieto wants expert debate on marijuana legalization Mexico horrified by suspected massacre, incineration of 43 students Outrage at likely Mexico massacre spreads to Acapulco Military helicopter shot down as drug violence surges in western Mexicolast_img read more

(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP) by Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Posted Jul 18, 2018 12:07 am PDT Last Updated Jul 19, 2018 at 4:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img SAN DIEGO – Comic-Con fans know one thing to be true: Where there is fun, there’s usually a line that precedes it. And hours before the annual pop culture convention officially kicked off Wednesday night in San Diego, there were lines everywhere — to get onto the convention floor to buy merchandise at the stroke of 6 p.m., to have the life scared out of them at the DC Universe Swamp Thing “experience,” to gaze at pretty Laika characters, to get into a Hall H panel Thursday morning and even to take a photo with an Andrew Lincoln lookalike.Over 130,000 pop culture devotees will come to San Diego’s Gaslamp District for the annual four-day comic book convention Comic-Con, the big, bright and very heavily branded confab of costumed superfans and the corporate sponsors vying for their attention — and dollars.Interested in dining at a working replica of the “Demolition Man” Taco Bell for the movie’s 25th anniversary? Or witness a mock court-martial of Star Wars’ Poe Dameron for leading a mutiny in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”? How about a wine and beer tasting with Neil deGrasse Tyson? Or a “Ready Player One” experience with retro gaming stations and recreation of Room 237 from “The Shining”? If you like pop culture, it’s highly likely there is something tailor-made for you at Comic-Con 2018.“I’m blown away by everyone, everything,” said first-time attendee Jeffrey Potts, of Los Angeles. “It’s like an amusement park in the middle of town.”Right outside the convention centre, across the train tracks, DC Universe has set up a massive space with props and costumes from various movies and tv shows in DC history, like the giant rubber ducky cart from “Batman Begins,” and some elaborately-staged “experiences” like a menacing Harley Quinn-themed escape room in a paint-splattered asylum.What started as a 300-person event in 1970 has evolved into a massive operation with events year-round. But San Diego Comic-Con is the marquee occasion. Tickets for four-day access plus preview night can set attendees back $276, before hotel, travel costs, food and any souvenirs.Loicia Ware, a San Diego resident who has been coming to Comic-Con for at least 10 years, likes to venture onto the convention centre floor right when it opens Wednesday evening for preview night, heading straight for Artists Alley and Small Collections on the 460,000 square foot space. It allows her to focus on panels for the rest of the week.As it has grown, attendees have come to expect a lot from Comic-Con, like exclusive merchandise on the convention centre floor, newsy announcements from some of Hollywood’s biggest studios, and screenings of anticipated films and television shows.This year Warner Bros. is coming armed with stars and footage from “Aquaman,” ”Shazam!,” ”Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and “The LEGO Movie 2”; Sony is hyping its Spider-Man spinoff “Venom”; and Universal Pictures will be teasing “Halloween” and M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass.” On the television side, fans will get a glimpse of new “Doctor Who” star Jodie Whittaker and have a chance to check out “Star Trek: Discovery” and “Riverdale.” And streaming services like Netflix and Hulu will be back with properties like Marvel’s “Iron Fist” and the new J.J. Abrams-produced “Castle Rock,” based on Stephen King stories.But a few of the major players are conspicuously absent from Hall H, the 6,500-seat room in the San Diego Convention Center that boasts the highest-profile presentations and attracts an enthusiastic fan base willing to camp out overnight in line to secure a coveted seat — as of mid-day Wednesday there were at least 300 people already in line for panels that don’t begin until Thursday morning. Those skipping this year include Marvel Studios, HBO (“Game of Thrones”) and Star Wars.“It’s a huge deal when major properties like Marvel, Star Wars or HBO don’t show up,” says Germain Lussier, an entertainment reporter for io9/Gizmodo who has been attending the convention for 15 years. “For the past decade, Marvel Studios panels have consistently been the No. 1 most anticipated thing for movie fans at Comic-Con. Their panels never failed to disappoint with exclusive footage, huge news and big surprises.”Production schedules are more to blame than anything else, however. Lussier notes that each of the absent brands has a big (and intensely secretive) installment coming in 2019, including “Avengers 4,” ”Star Wars: Episode IX” and the final season of “Game of Thrones.”“Instead of showing up and disappointing fans, they’re simply bowing out to not bolster expectations,” he says.Also, other brands and properties could benefit from an unusually open runway.“Every year, there’s always one or two things everyone is talking about. And if it’s not ‘Avengers 4’or ‘Star Wars,’ what’s it going to be?” says Lussier. “I think this is a huge opportunity for Warner Bros. to steal every headline with major news and exciting footage.”___Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahrlast_img read more

"They’ve done a very good job in characterizing the virus and it’s convincing that it is distinct from the other four" says Thomas Scott a dengue expert at the University of California Davis What it may mean for controlling dengue is unclear So far dengue 5 has been linked to only one outbreak in humans Vasilakis suspects that it is circulating possibly among macaques in the forests of Sarawak If it spreads it could make human vaccine development more challenging "We don’t need another complication in controlling dengue" Scott says Current efforts to rein in the disease are falling short In talks here today researchers from Malaysia the Philippines and Thailand said that despite control programs launched in the 2000s dengue cases are increasing though the death toll is down thanks to better management of severe cases "Dengue is spreading from urban to rural areas and to countries such as Nepal where it has not been seen before" said Samlee Plianbangchang the World Health Organization Southeast Asia regional director The annual global incidence close to 390 million cases is about three times the burden previously estimated researchers reported in April in Nature Despite a recent setback in vaccine development Plianbangchang said that projects in the pipeline have researchers "looking forward to a vaccine in the near future" But he adds that a vaccine will

Wars: The Force Awakens cribs too heavily from George Lucas original trilogy But the director of what is now the highest-grossing domestic release of all time doesnt seem to find the lack of faith disturbing In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter Abrams acknowledged that some viewers may find his film overly familiar but he also maintained that it was important to acknowledge the franchises past while paving the way for its future "I can understand that someone might say Oh its a complete rip-off" Abrams said adding "What was important for me was introducing brand new characters using relationships that were embracing the history that we know to tell a story that is new to go backwards to go forwards" Abrams who co-wrote The Force Awakens with Lawrence Kasdan (after Michael Arndt worked on earlier drafts) also said he knew going into the project that he wouldnt be able to please everyone "I knew that whatever we did there would be a group of people and I was just hoping and praying that it would be smaller than not that would take issue with any number of things" he said "But I knew we werent making the movie for any other reason than we believed that it could be something meaningful and special and entertaining and worthy of peoples time" This article originally appeared on EWcom Contact us at editors@timecomOne of the most significant partnerships in Hollywood began with casual neighborly chats between two dads Steven Spielberg didnt direct Tom Hanks until 1998s Saving Private Ryan but the pair had spent years as friends discussing their shared affinity for American stories Since then the pair have made the comedies Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal and co-produced HBO historical spectaculars like Band of Brothers and The Pacific Now they’re back together In conversation hours before the New York City premiere of their new film Bridge of Spies the pair has an easy camaraderie and a shared familiarity with American history Spies which opens Oct 16 amid a healthy dose of Oscar speculation sees Hanks playing James Donovan a real-life insurance lawyer tasked to defend Soviet spy Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance) Though his defense is only intended to make it appear like justice is being served Donovan ends up not merely providing full-throated advocacy but getting involved in prisoner-exchange negotiations after an American U-2 pilot is downed over the USSR and an American student is taken prisoner in Berlin Its a complicated situation that Spielberg and Hanks approach in a manner both unfashionably devoid of irony and refreshingly suffused with moral clarity And in an interview with TIME for the issue on newsstands Oct 9 they addressed their partnership how Hollywood has changed from technology to racial representation and whether it’s possible for filmmakers to make a real social impact Your last collaboration onscreen was The Terminal more than a decade ago What accounts for the gaps between collaborations and what about a given Spielberg movie makes it seem like one that needs Hanks in it Hanks: [laughs] What is that Spielberg: Its funny because a couple of times its been my idea once its been Toms idea and once it was that we decided independent of each other Once Tom read the first draft of a script and I read the first draft of a script and we called each other on the phone at the same moment and decided to do it togetherthat was Saving Private Ryan That was the one time that he cast me and I cast him Hanks: Youre giving me a little too much credit I wasnt quite that prescient I think I did some ground work to find out if you were open to the phone call What have you learned about each other’s processes since Saving Private Ryan Hanks: When we got to know each other as guys who live in the same part of town and had kids all about the same age operating in the same nonprofessional circles we developed a language that was all about how we read history for pleasure We were constantly reading biographies or histories searching out the documentaries wed never seen From that came this dialogue based in "Did you hear about this Did you read this Did you see this Are you reading that now" Its no surprise that the first thing we did was based on the vision of history we never cease reading about and it just goes on and on; cant quite get enough of it We really had this shorthand His version of cinema is all his and instinctive my version of acting is completely [mine] so we never really talked about the specifics of it Steven Jurassic World recently became one of the biggest movies of all time Hanks: Isn’t it the biggest film of all time Spielberg: Its number three behind Avatar and Titanic and its about to become number four when Star Wars comes out Were three now until December 18 my birthday Then I give it about three weeks before we are number four Hanks: Star Wars will come out and the world is going to tilt on its axis and stop revolving and everything after that will be different How did Jurassic World exceed or fall short of your expectations Spielberg: It exceeded not only my expectations but the people whose job it is to prognosticate; it exceeded the studios expectations and [director] Colin Trevorrow’s expectations Who could have expected this mega-success on his first non-Sundance film Hanks: [laughs] Now that guys got problems as far as his next job goes Hes gotta accept the fact that he aint gonna top it All he has to do is turn in a good movie and hell win man Talk about a sophomore jinx man his next gig Do you want to be a part of the franchise world anymore Bridge of Spies seems to be as far from an “expanded cinematic universe” as possible Spielberg: Thank goodness I cant live on an alien planet my entire career Ive got to find things that are earthbound that make me glad to be on this planet and experiences when Im making films that have relevance and have kinship to actual events in history That fills me up; that makes me actually happier in this stage of my life than even a success like Jurassic World When do you know a film is working Hanks: Never I wish we could The only thing we know is Hey that was fun Spielberg: I run a movie for myself the first time and if I can forget I had anything to do with the picture and Im halfway through the movie and Im just the audience then that is my litmus test for a film working It doesnt mean its going to work for anybody outside of myself but when I lose the aesthetic distance between the screen and where Im sitting the first time I run a picture that Ive directed for myself if Im aware to the very end that Im the director and all I can do is find things to fault then I know I have my work cut out for me And I have to roll up my sleeves and fix everything But when I can watch a movie and I can forget that I made the movie thats the first sign that Im going to be pretty happy with it that Im going to be able to live with it Your kids are involved in varying capacities in the entertainment industry one that looks wildly different from the one in which you came up What do you make of it all Hanks: I wish that it would have been so easy to make my own content when I was in high school and college You had to buy film and cameras and Moviolas and stuff like that It wasnt something you could just do And now when anyone says to me "How do you get started in Hollywood" I say "If youre not already creating get out" Because all the tools are at your disposal to put together any idea you want And that can be for a great 20 seconds or it can be for a great 20 minutes Spielberg: There are stories to be told in every format There are stories to be told if youve only got five minutes between classes You can look at your watch; you can pick up your phone You can look at a five-minute story There is something to make you smile or laugh to share with your friend that maybe is only seven seconds long There is something today for everybody which gives voice to so many people who would never have a voice and who would have to go into the professional world with this iron ceiling to try to be heard Today anyone can be heard at any time Do Hollywood’s changes the degree to which traditional movies and TV are being encroached upon by a million other forms of entertainment concern you Hanks: My oldest son Colinhes working in television now and the structure of its completely different than when I was working in it The money is different the pull they have is different The wake is so much wider now in terms of all the creativity thats out there As an artist who needs to have the money in order to do what he wants to do there is pressure involved in there and its tough Because the chances are the measure for success is either you are an ultra absolute mega-hit or youre an also-ran I think theres many more also-rans than there are mega-utra-super hits Thats just the reality of it Now if you can do it without having too much worries about money involved in it then you can do any damn thing you want to and all you have to do is put in the hard work Does this make you optimistic about greater representation at the highest levels of Hollywood It still seems like most top actors and directors tend to be white and in the case of directors male Hanks: What that is isfor lack of a better wordthe military-industrial complex makes the decision of what gets the attention Theres all sorts of influence and marketing that goes around in order to get those sort of movies as much influence and eyeballs as possible You do not have to go far down the food chain in order to see the opposite of that: You name the minority you name the diversity and its happening in spades You cant find it and its not thrust forward because they dont have the marketing behind them but if you want to and youve got Netflix or Apple TV you can see almost anybody of any color or any gender doing any story they want to Its not going to be for a lot of money and maybe only 17000 other people have seen it But its there and all you have to do is separate yourself Ive got to come up with some other name than “military-industrial complex” The “entertainment complex” Spielberg: Two of the biggest hits of the year are Empire on Fox and Straight Outta Compton Hanks: And what does that prove That proves there is an audience with a vociferous appetite for it So the entertainment complex will catch up with it Itll just be at a snails pace What periods of history feel under-covered by film Hanks: I dont think you can just choose the era or the genre Because that takes the inspiration out of it It has to be something that someone discovers as the avenue into it The best example I can give right now is what theyre doing with Hamilton If you say “Oh its a play about Alexander Hamilton in colonial times” I say "Well give me a gun so I can shoot myself in the head because thats just going to be homework and medicine" If you say “No no its a hip hop version” "Okay its a hip-hop version Well tell you what give me a gun so I can shoot myself in the head because that just sounds downright silly" And then you go and see it and it actually is so prescient because say what you want about the thing but I saw it twice when it was down at the Public [Theater] and when I realized I was watching a huge African-American man playing George Washington talking about throwing off the yoke of oppression and the need for human beings to thrive under liberty I thought OK this is brand-new territory that is so salient to our lives today that I never would have been able to imagine it And thats whats requiredthe new avenue into it Is there a common thread in US historysomething that connects the stories of Lincoln and the Invasion of Normandy and the story of James Donovan Spielberg: I dont think theres an easy answer to that question because if there was a common thread Jim Crow wouldnt even have existed and Lincolns intentions for his method of rebuilding or reconstructing the company would have been facile and would have been resolved before the end of the 19th century I think the dogma of racism if theres anything that has stunted our growth as a nation and continues to echo is exactly that Can Hollywood make inroads against that Spielberg: When they made 12 Years a Slave that opened a lot of eyes I know it was ancient history to some people but when you see a movie that can transport you back to a time thats almost hard to watch its no longer ancient history Its relevant to the young person who sees that movie and it might reshape their values Is there one of each other’s movies you wish you had worked on Hanks: Dear Godwell youre fishing for something specific I was just back from working my first season at the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival and I was back in my college town of Sacramento and I was working as a stage manager at a local theater company which also meant that I was assistant technical director and built sets and all that kind of stuff I had a rare morning off and I was sleeping on the floor of a friend of mine because I didnt have an apartment at the time This other buddy calls me up and we jumped in my Volkswagen drove to the Century Inn Cinemas for the 10:20 showing of Close Encounters of the Third Kind It was the first showing it was a weekday so there were maybe 40 people in the theater but this was a movie we had studied the making of without having seen a single frame of the movie What was great about it too both me and my friends commented on it: It had no iconographic casting to it Richard Dreyfuss was a guy who worked for the power company We had never really seen a movie where a guy who worked for the power company met the aliens Spielberg: I have to say Philadelphia Because I knew Tom really well when he was making Philadelphia Really well And I was making Schindlers List at the same time So before we all took off for our movies Tom cut all his hair off so he brought his family over on the weekends to our beach house And Ive got videos of Tom with no hair with a baseball cap on I knew the story but hadnt read the script I knew what audiences were about to see For me the proof in knowing someone very very well and not knowing someone at all but knowing his character very well is when I went to see Philadelphia and forgot that I even knew this man And saw one of the most noble statements I had seen in film It was a ground-breaking achievement in the social context and the context of tolerance And opening peoples minds to something they were very closed to in those days; an issue that was a clear and present danger to everyone And it was really–that was one of the most shattering experiences Ive had seeing a movie when I knew the actor and then discovered that I didnt know the character The knowing of the actor didnt knock down the fourth wall The role of James Donovan is self-consciously tamped down; he’s a relatively anonymous lawyer whose special qualities only become clear over time Why cast one of the most recognizable men in the world Spielberg: This part was crying out for one of the greatest living actors… Hanks: Im going to get a banana [leaves] Spielberg: …I was able to snag one of the greatest living actors to represent the virtues and the principles that this character showed all of us in real life Hanks: Theres no escaping the countenance that goes along with the whole thing; cant help it Ive been babysitting kids on video since Bosom Buddies But if youre only giving the audience stuff theyre familiar with theyre going to hate you There has to be something new up there And its beyond my pay grade to figure out what it is Everybodys burdened by that There are a handful of actors that are truly mysterious Daniel Day[-Lewis] is one of them Johnny Depp is one of them to a degree and other people that you might not necessarily know their names Spielberg: Robert Downey Jr Hanks: Yeah he can do stuff But if you know their name then they are somehow defined There are a lot of brilliant actors out therethat guys great that guys great I dont know their names If you know their name your job is to surprise them If you dont youre screwed Contact us at editors@timecom

NewsPublished: February 7 2014 2:42 am In theory primary selection makes parties more likely to respond to the views of the electorate But in practice this is not always the case(AP) Related News By: Alistair McMillan The Congress experiment may call forth unintended consequences The Congress party’s decision to introduce primary elections to select Lok Sabha candidates seeks to empower party workers and open up new opportunities for advancement through the party Strengthening party democracy and opening up the process through which candidates are selected should be a popular move but international experience suggests that primary elections can have unexpected consequences for the quality of representation The Congress isn’t the first party to see primary elections as a means to re-legitimise a moribund party organisation associated with weak government and corruption The Spanish Socialist Party used primary elections to choose its leader after the party’s reputation was tarnished in the 1990s but when the party members selected an outsider José Borrell the establishment fought back and he was forced to resign before getting a chance to fight the general election In Mexico in 2000 when the once dominant Institutional Revolutionary Party was forced to respond to a real democratic challenge it turned to a presidential primary to present itself as a party open to new ideas and competition It was not enough to defeat the challenge of Vicente Fox of the Alliance for Change Although presented as “US style” primaries the Congress scheme only allows party members and officials to have a say in the candidate selection process In the US primaries are often “open” to any registered voter widening out the public participation process And while primary elections certainly provide an opportunity to widen political engagement remember that voter turnout in the US is remarkably low In Britain the Conservative party has adopted open primaries for selecting candidates in a small number of constituencies With a shrinking and socially unrepresentative membership the party has seen primary elections as a way to rejuvenate the local support base and broaden the appeal of the party Candidate selection becomes a media event and raises the profile of candidates prior to the election In a system where many seats are “safe” it is seen as giving the public a real influence over who becomes a member of parliament The Labour party in Britain has seen one member one vote (OMOV) as a central part of reforms aimed to redress a tortuous organisational history which has been seen to hinder the party’s electoral success and popular responsiveness Tony Blair saw OMOV as a way of democratising the Labour party characterised by a traditional link with trade unions and an activist base which has often placed factional battles before electoral considerations However there were tensions between the New Labour project as envisaged by Blair and the beliefs of the grassroots party membership These tensions were most obvious in 2000 when the party leadership changed the selection process for the candidate for London mayor to prevent leftwinger Ken Livingstone from being chosen The Labour party sought to balance the popular appeal of primary elections with strong central control over which people could stand for selection as party candidates It is a practice the Congress seems to be copying: opening up the process of selection while keeping close control of the options available to the primary electorate Whether this is enough to constrain a factionalised party organisation with little ideological coherence remains to be seen In the US it has been argued that there is a “primary penalty” where candidates selected through primary elections are less effective in winning competitive elections The suggestion is that the selectorate for primary elections can have an agenda that is partisan and unresponsive to the wider electorate An example would be the mobilisation of the Tea Party movement to influence the selection of Republican party candidates This sort of activist capture led to the Republicans fielding candidates with extreme opinions on issues such as abortion and public services which led to moderate Republicans and independents deserting the party in the 2012 election The concept of the “primary penalty” has also been used to explain electoral outcomes in Latin America where in many countries including Argentina Brazil Chile Mexico and Uruguay parties have used primaries to select candidates for presidential elections According to political scientist Josep Colomer internal democracy can reduce popular support in a general election and primaries tend to choose weaker presidential candidates Yet presidential primaries can be defended as providing opportunities for less well-known candidates to raise their profile and for party members to unite behind a chosen candidate Empirical studies of Latin American elections have indicated that candidates endorsed by primary elections get a boost of around 5 per cent in popular support An example comes from Brazil where Luiz Ignácio (Lula) da Silva despite having been defeated in three previous presidential elections won the Worker’s Party primary election and used this as a springboard to success in the 2002 presidential election Candidate selection by primaries has broader implications for party organisation and electoral politics In theory primary selection makes parties more likely to respond to the views of the electorate But in practice this is not always the case Evidence suggests that primary elections have mixed implications for the representativeness of the party system Decentralisation of the selection process may also make the overall slate of candidates less diverse The “tyranny of small decisions” may be a consequence where politicians from minorities or women applicants lose out to those from dominant groups Each constituency is focused on its own selection process rather than thinking about how the overall selection process reflects the broader diversity of the party and the electorate Party primaries may also have an influence on the ideological coherence of a party programme and the way that the elected candidates behave in the legislature MPs and MLAs who are selected by a primary election may feel that they are responsible to the party members in their constituency who chose them rather than the party leadership This could make enforcing party discipline and pushing forward a legislative programme more problematic The fact that the Congress party organisation is not completely behind the idea of candidate selection through primaries is already evident An indication of underlying tension is shown by the decision to scale back the scheme from 25 to 16 constituencies and the speedy reversal of the decision to use a primary in Kapil Sibal’s Chandni Chowk constituency There will certainly be further party machinations regarding the composition of the primary electorate and the process of determining a winner Rahul Gandhi’s call for the democratisation of the Congress recalls the attempt by his father Rajiv Gandhi to do the same in the 1980s There is an obvious paradox in a dynastic leadership pressing for a more open and meritocratic party system and earlier reform attempts floundered Democratisation of the grassroots is a worthy cause but it would be more effective if the party leadership shared the principles of openness and accountability The

adult caregivers decreases when they are watching television Dr Dimitri A Christakisof the University of Washington School of Medicine and Seattle Children’s Research Instituteobserved during the study that young children and their adult caregivers uttered fewer vocalizationsused fewer wordsand engaged in fewer conversations when in the presence of audible television Published in the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicinethe population-based study is the first of its kind completed in the home environment “We’ve known that television exposure during infancy is associated with language delays and attentional problemsbut so far it has remained unclear why This study is the first to demonstrate that when the television is onthere is reduced speech in the home Infants vocalize less and their caregivers also speak to them more infrequently” said Christakis The study involved 329 children aged two months to four years old The children wore a smallbusiness card-sizedtwo-ounce digital recorder on random days monthly for up to two years A specially designed vest with a chest pocket held the recorders at a specific distance from the mouthand captured everything the child said and also heard during continuous 12 to 16 hour periods The researcher removed the recorders only for napsbathsnighttime sleep and car rides The research team also used a speech identification software program to process the recorded files to analyse sounds children were exposed to in their environmentas well as the sounds and utterances they made According to themmeasurements in this study included adult word countschild vocalizationsand child conversational turnsdefined as verbal interactions when a child vocalizes and an adult responds to them vocally (or vice versa) within five seconds The researchers found each hour of audible television to be linked with significant reductions in child vocalizationsvocalization durationand conversational turns They said thaton averageeach additional hour of television exposure was also associated with a seven percent decrease in the words the child heard from an adult during the recording session There were significant reductions in both adult female and male word counts “Adults typically utter approximately 941 words per hour Our study found that adult words are almost completely eliminated when television is audible to the child These results may explain the association between infant television exposure and delayed language development” said Christakis The researcher believes that eh findings of the study may be prove helpful in understanding attentional and cognitive delaysas language development is considered to be a critical component of brain development in early childhood “Audible television clearly reduces speech for both infants and their caregivers within the homeand this is potentially harmful for babies” development There is simply nothing better for early childhood language acquisition than the spoken and imitated words of caregiversand every word counts Television is not only a poor caregiver substitutebut it actually reduces the number of language sounds and words babies hearvocalize and therefore learn We are increasingly technologizing infancywhich may prove harmful to the next generation of adults” added Christakis For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related
