Delhi economy hit hard by mosquito-borne diseases | Asia | DW.COM | 30.09.2016

The latter is what knocked out Golu Kumar Paswan a week ago. The 18-year-old, who works as a laborer in a manufacturing facility, developed a high fever and pain. The virus has sapped him of all energy, making it impossible for him to go to work.”My company doesn’t pay me when I don’t show up, so I’m losing out on my wages, which I need desperately to pay for my rent in Delhi and to send back to my family in the Uttar Pradesh state,” Paswan said. “Things are really difficult. How am I going to survive?”Worker crunch hits industrial outputIt’s a question that many of Paswan’s fellow migrant workers laid low by the viral illnesses have answered by packing up their bags and leaving for their villages.That has left the over 1,500 small-scale factories in Mayapuri, an industrial hub that relies on the steady supply of cheap labor from the neighboring slums. Everything from car parts, textiles to machinery is produced here. The area has witnessed a 20 percent dip in production and profits because workers have been calling in sick or leaving to go back home.

400-Pound Hacker? Trump Comments Fuel Dialogue on Fat-Shaming – The New York Times

Until the debate, Ms. Kinzel said she had not focused on much of what Mr. Trump has said. But during the debate, it became personal. She said she realized overweight people like her were now “just one in a line of people he wants to dismiss as losers.”

Abbas… a disgrace to people

nadiaharhash

Call me radical. Call me fundamentalist. Call me a warmonger.

I actually don’t care. If being pacific, a peacemaker means walking in the funeral of a man whose hands will forever remain stained with Palestinian victims blood. A man whose Palestinian diaspora and expulsion has been largely manifested by his contribution. A man whom because of his orchestrating of a Zionist Israel we Palestinian will continue to live under the rubbles of a dream of a state.

Well Peres is dead, and hopefully he is now handled within the hands of real justice.

What is really damn frustrating, the Palestinian so called president who rushed to the funeral with his convoy of amateurs.

I admit I am furious, my language will be as furious as my state of mind. It is not the anger on a man who died. I have no problem with Israel and the world mourning him.
