Earlier spoke to @BBCR4Sunday
about the barbaric #murder of French teacher Samuel #Paty.An anti-#terrorist enquiry is in full swing with the authorities making information available as quickly as possible.Meanwhile marches will be held today in commemoration of Paty.#CharlieHebdo
The #Elysee Palace said a “national #hommage” would be paid to Samuel #Paty, on a day to be fixed & it will be coordinated with his family. #Macron said the killer had sought to “attack the republic and its values” & the “#terrorists will not succeed… They will not divide us.”
Told @BBCR4Sunday the difficulty of discussing the issues #Paty's murder throw up is that our starting point is pure #barbarity–an utterly evil act that will be condemned by all decent people, including millions of Muslims who live in France & indeed in other parts of the world.

⬇️⬇️
In May, the Ministry of Home Affairs commissioned a #committee for reforms in our criminal #laws. In simple words, a #committee to rewrite all our criminal #laws.

(2/n)
Experts fear that the committee will dilute safeguards that exist to prevent unfair prosecutions & wrongful convictions. Several #lawyers, #activists, & academics have raised concerns about the #committee and called for it to be disbanded. But why? Let's take a look ⬇️

So far so good, haven't seen any serious error/problem in what I've seen so far, but I need to look more carefully, before making a judgement. But clearly the reform process is now well under way 👍🏼👍🏼
3/labor Best change is reversal of #Indira #Gandhi's arbitrary decision during infamous #emergency, to lower limit for, retrenchment w/o bureaucratic permission, from 300 to 100. This will help restore the #Missing #Middle", as firms with <100 workers are free to expand to 300

Big Boost for #Tourism.
The toursim potential of J&K is immense. There was no major national or global player in tourism sector earlier. Investment in tourist infrastructure like hotels will increase tourist arrivals.

What would your #USGovernment do in a pandemic for #NationalSecurity?

Take out a building?
Take out prison?
Take out a hospital?
Take out a shelter?
Take out a city?
Take out a state?

What would the oligarchs & kleptocrats do to out-#survive US?
On 9/11, scrambled jets were given orders to shoot down full passenger jets as necessary - don't think these discussions aren't taking place in earnest. #StephenMiller & #JaredKushner are in on the talks, so you know they're about #homicide and #genocide. They're real life Nazis.
"Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and top adviser, and Stephen Miller, a senior policy adviser, took the lead in writing President Donald Trump's error-riddled address to the nation about the coronavirus outbreak."

What would be the path and intensity of a tornado?

Edward Lorenz, a scientist, made an insane discovery.

#path #Laws #lawyers #lawsikho
Even the flapping of the wings of a butterfly that occurred several weeks prior can greatly influence the ultimate outcome of how and where the tornado forms, how far it travels and how soon it ceases to exist.

Ridiculous, right?
Let me quote from a celebrated scientific paper:

“one flap of a sea gull's wings would be enough to alter the course of the weather forever. The controversy has not yet been settled, but the most recent evidence seems to favor the seagulls.”

It's not just end of a year, today we say good bye to an entire decade. Today is the last day of teenage for the twenty first century. From tomorrow, it will be twenty plus!

#decade #investments #time #lawyers #laws #lawsikho
I am sure we are all going to party tonight. And reflect back at the decade we are leaving behind.

It would perhaps take a few years to understand what this decade was all about.
For India, 90s were about economic liberalisation, globalization, rise of engineering and IT, the first computers and ridiculous bollywood movies we fell in love with.

90s was the decade when love marriage began to become the aspirational thing.

This post is the first one in the series of ‘Simplifying FinTech and FinTech Laws’. The evolution of finance started almost a century decades ago when the world saw the establishment of Fedwire in the US in 1918. lawforit.wordpress.com/2019/12/22/sim…
The actual #fintech application was the first mobile payment in 1997 to buy a #CocaCola from the vending machine. In India, as well, the FinTech has completed almost one and a half-decade, but still, there seems to be little awareness about what the term ‘FinTech’ actually means.
The fact that people are not aware of what ‘FinTech’ is and what daily #financing applications constitute it is the inspiration of the series of posts. The author is hopeful that these posts will help in #simplifying the #understanding of FinTech and related #Laws.

Thread (1/4): Quick food for thought, why #AI and #Machinelearning need to be discussed together with the debates on autonomy and #LAWS: The key of AI are not the smarter/faster/more complex decisions, this can be reached with classic algorithms, too. But...
Thread (2/4): The key of #AI is, that the underlying code produces decisions that go beyond explainability, control, surveillance and possibly even beyond human influence...
Thread (3/4): Even if the code does not pull the trigger, humans will tend to believe the decisions or pre-decisions/filter/sorting/assesment of machines and presumambly follow its suggestions - which is imho in a way already autonomy from human influence and oversight...

The National Commission for Enterprises in the #UnorganisedSector was set up in 2004 as an advisory body & a watchdog for the #informal sector. This NCEUS report reviews #labour #laws & #SocialSecurity systems that apply to #workers in unorganised sectors. bit.ly/2PhAOEN ImageImageImageImage
It observes that while existing laws have some provisions for conditions of #work for certain workers, there is no comprehensive legal framework for the “basic and minimum conditions of work” for unorganised sector workers.
Therefore, it proposes comprehensive & protective laws for agricultural & non-agricultural workers in the unorganised sector that will regulate conditions of #work, #SocialSecurity, #welfare and #livehood promotion.

Thursday thoughts on #risk assessment tools, roughly paraphrased from Janus & Prentky, 2003. "Like any tool of science, actuarial risk assessment can be used for good or ill." Used well, it can make decision-making more transparent.
Used poorly, ARA can have unintended consequences, including justification for "increasingly aggressive and expansive preventive detention #laws." Janus and Prentky "urge caution and mindfulness in using ARA."
In other words, we should consider not only the #science, but also the effects of relying on ARA. The accuracy of these tools does not address underlying concerns about legal paradigms that promote incapacitation based on group-based risk #Statistics. #cjreform

There are 2 ways to interpret digital capital market:“DIGITAL CAPITAL”
market which consists of digital assets,and “DIGITAL”capital market in which financial activities are based on #digitization,according to an inspiring speech by Xiao Gang at 4th #Beijing Global #Fintech Summit Image
According to Xiao, there are three major functions of a “digital capital market”:
1. To reflect capital market activities such as #trading, registration, and
settlement; and to structuralize data in capital market(e.g. financial reporting&

2. Improve the operation of capital #market, which concerns improving the inclusiveness of #finance, addressing financial information asymmetry, and reforming outdated financial regulatory measures etc.

Analysis of @OfficialAPCNg Response To @atiku Petition At Presidential Tribunal Panel.

Not Only Atiku, You All Are Nigerians.

By: @kadetumi

Thread!
Dear Nigerians from the former Northern Cameroon, we acknowledged the psychological torture you must have suffered as a result of current dehumanising and treasonable response of @OfficialAPCNg to the petition of one of you, Alhaji @atiku Abubakar, at the Presidential Tribunal
Please know this is not the position of we, the people of Federal Republic of #Nigeria, but that of the @OfficialAPCNg and its presidential candidate in the #NigeriaDecides2019

👆#TurnKey,Inc.: #SEC turning the (same)key in the lock

Surprised that commentators think there is anything new in this decision. It is simply a different type of argumentation. It is for the first time a #negative #definition of #ICO #regulation by #securities#laws. Thread👇
👉1. In Munchee Inc., SEC claims (sec.gov/litigation/adm…):
⛔️Munchee has no viable product
⛔️tokens sold are not usable, but will possibly be in the future
⛔️ICO will fund the development of the project
⛔️MUN price will vary AND reasonable expectation of future profits
⛔️#profits (or losses) depend solely on efforts of #Munchee #managers
⛔️#marketing MUN token in the manner to induces the purchasers to believe there is a profit expected solely for buying MUN and reselling it later.
⚠️a positive definition -> this IS a security

#China's closer economic ties with #EU: EU has become China's second biggest destination for #investment, while #trade and #financial #cooperation is gaining strong momentum.
See graph: China's direct investment in the UK Image
A hard #Brexit's influence on the bilateral ties:
#EU will charge #tariffs on products from the #UK at a rate around 3%, making it less attractive to #Chinese manufacturers to build product bases;
Chinese financial institutions will bear higher costs to offer services to EU via the UK; Chinese #investment in real estates and #infrastructure projects in the UK may see lower returns; and changes in #laws and #regulations will bring more #uncertainties.

1/3 My favourite podcast of the week is a three-part series by NPR's Planet Money on Antitrust law in the US.
The series talks about the first-ever antitrust case in the US - Standard Oil.

Episode I - npr.org/sections/money…

#podcast #bestoftheweek
2/3 The second episode highlights changes in the antitrust law in the late 19th century.

3/3 The final episode talks about the tech monopolies (Facebook, Amazon and Google) and how new antitrust thinkers are gearing up to challenge them.

Due thanks @SebDance for inspiration
#HappyNewYear2019
Some clever 🇬🇧 spin doctors have added a ➕ to 🇳🇴

'#NorwayPlus'
assumedly to make it more alluring?

@USverdrup, Director at Norwegian Institute of International Affairs @NUPInytt noted to the 🇳🇴 @Aftenposten daily:
“If you stand at the edge
you no longer seek the best solution”
Please consider this:

Did any Central & Eastern European country joining 🇪🇺 2004
1st knock @EFTAsecretariat's door
as their preferred ‘solution’ for #SingleMarket access?

#EFTA & the #EEA Agreement it administers
= a barren 🏜️ for #democracy

Today, @NITIAayog released a Discussion Paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence”. #AIforAll
niti.gov.in/writereaddata/…
We provide our initial thoughts on the paper here. 1/n
We welcome this initiative by @NITIAayog, but a call for comments would have been a welcome addition. The paper takes important steps forward from the #AI Task Force report released earlier this year by the DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry (dipp.nic.in/sites/default/…). 2/n
This paper attempts a more holistic look at a broader range of issues concerning AI including #regulation, #ethics, #fairness, #transparency and #accountability. However, a number of issues still remain with this paper. 3/n
