No room for negotiation on sovereignty issues: Shafie’s approach questionable

Incumbent Sabah chief minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal’s method of defending the state’s territorial sovereignty is questionable.

His words and intentions are akin to betraying rather than defending Sabah.

It is an unequivocal fact that Sabah is one of the 14 states of Malaysia. There can be no compromise or even room for negotiation on this issue.

As the immediate past chief minister, Shafie should resolutely protest or object to any ownership claim by any foreign government or group, instead of nodding towards negotiation.

Off and on, the Philippines government and official agencies will provoke the issue of ownership over Sabah. This was more obvious when Shafie helmed the state.

However, his remarks several days ago had raised many doubts. Suggesting that the governments of Malaysia and the Philippines should hold negotiations to resolve the Philippines’ territorial claim over Sabah should not even be considered because Sabah belongs to Malaysia.

New nonprofit provides lifetime hunting, fishing licenses

One of Brent Hutchins’ favorite sayings was “one more.” Whether he was out fishing, hunting or just spending time with his family or friends, he would say, “Just one more buck,” or “just one more fish,” or “just one more minute.”

“Brent would always say it, and of course, it would always lead to more than just one,” said Brent’s wife, Christy, who recently started a new nonprofit in his honor called One More for Brent.

Brent died in 2016 as the result of a work accident at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock. According to a story in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Hutchins was in the Central Building performing routine maintenance under an elevator when it “came down in the normal cycle and struck him.”

Following the accident, the Jacksonville chapter of the Delta Waterfowl organization purchased lifetime hunting and fishing licenses for Brent’s two children,

Oppenheimer: 3 Stocks That Could Surge Over 100% From Current Levels

So far, September has been a wild ride of ups and downs. Following the recent bout of volatility, stocks have ticked higher again. But as uncertainty regarding another rescue program and the presidential election continues to linger, where does the market go from here? Weighing in for Oppenheimer, Chief Investment Strategist John Stoltzfus argues that any market dips appear “relatively contained and orderly,” and present longer-term investors the chance to find “babies that got thrown out with the bathwater.” He noted, “For nervous investors the recent downdraft has presented opportunity to take some profits without FOMO (fear of missing out).”As for the tech heavyweights that powered the market’s five-month charge forward, the strategist believes “current expectations that technology stocks will remain under pressure for some time seem exaggerated.” Stoltzfus adds that the “core of technology stocks did not

In the past two decades, the government of India has brought out several model Acts to correct the inefficiencies of the agricultural marketing systems that have persisted.

By Arabinda K Padhee & PK Joshi

Agri-marketing reforms have been described as key to harnessing the untapped potential of the farm sector. With enhanced agricultural production and a resultant ‘marketable surplus’ from an increasing number of farm households over the years, liberalising the existing marketing scenario has long been advocated by farmers’ organisations, think tanks, researchers and experts.

The promulgation of three specific ordinances, relating to deregulation under the Essential Commodities Act, agri-trade and commerce, and contract farming, in early June this year was hailed by many noted economists and other stakeholders connected to Indian farming. However, the recent spate of protests from some parts of the country, especially Punjab and Haryana, is interesting to analyse
