Mumbai-born Parsi lawyer Sarosh Zaiwala Wednesday notched a remarkable success in a bank case in the British Supreme Court, with major ramifications on the international banking system, an official said. By the court verdict, the British government's sanctions on Iran's largest private bank, Bank Mellat, were lifted after the its security service's "Secret Court" failed to produce significant ...
There was plenty of talk about breathing easier and the end of a long fiscal storm among the eight mayors who joined state Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans Wednesday to hail the 2013 Legislature's big boost in state aid to cities, through a revamped Local Government Aid (LGA) program. The $80 million increase over three years is the first substantial boost cities have seen since the ...
It can be puzzling, and be deemed 'wrong' to some, that some traditions have, in the sanctuary of their shrines, a mirror. People pay obeisance to their God standing in front of this mirror that reflects them; its placement symbolising that God is inside oneself and it is of no use to seek God elsewhere. And with this realisation, since everyone else reflects God too, we are enjoined ...
Congress MLAs heightens the possibility of a future JD(U)-Congress alliance, which could even be in the shape of seat adjustments during the 2014 general elections. A second politically significant outcome of the trust vote was the resignation of six BJP legislators who now plan to join the JD(U), a development that may cause more MLAs to break ranks. The BJP, which had earlier issued a whip to ...

By any yardstick, the resounding victory by moderate cleric Hassan Rowhani in the Iranian presidential election was a welcome surprise. It had been widely believed the poll would be won by a hard-line candidate who would be even more difficult to deal with than the outgoing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Yet again, however, the Iranian people seized the opportunity to express their disapproval of their ...
It has been a long and eventful week in Istanbul. It will be hard for many who were there to forget the scenes reminiscent of war on the streets around Taksim Square and Gezi Park, the site of the protests, on Tuesday evening and into the night. After apparently conciliatory tweets from Istanbul governor Hüseyin Avni Mutlu to the young protesters occupying Gezi Park just a day earlier, and ...
A new report that says half of all status First Nations children in Canada live in poverty paints a dire picture but should also be a source of optimism. In a refreshing break from the usual handwringing, the report points out that injecting more money into First Nations reserves won't accomplish a thing until what it accurately describes as a "dysfunctional accountability system" ...

Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

University of Toronto scientists have found pockets of water that had been sitting 2.4 kilometres underneath the Earth's surface for more than a billion years.
Earth sciences professor Barbara Sherwood, who admitted that she had tasted it from time to time, revealed that the water has the consistency of maple syrup and is much saltier than seawater, News.com.au reported.
She told the LA Times that it tastes terrible and is much saltier than seawater.
The water is transparent when it first comes out from the rocks it has been trapped between but quickly turns an orange colour as the minerals within it, such as iron, begin to form.
The rocks the water is trapped in formed about 2.6 billion years ago on what used to be an ancient ocean floor. The scientists suspect that the trapped water could be remnant ocean water, which got stuck as it moved through the cracks in the rock.
The results of this discovery were published in scientific journal Nature last month. (ANI)
