What's Wrong with Pakistan? - By Robert D. Kaplan

Only the worst African hellholes, Afghanistan, Haiti, Yemen, and Iraq rank higher on this year's Failed States Index. The country is run by a military obsessed with -- and, for decades, invested in -- the conflict with India, and by a civilian elite that steals all it can and pays almost no taxes. But despite an overbearing military, tribes "defined by a near-universal male participation in organized violence," as the late European anthropologist Ernest Gellner put it, dominate massive swaths of territory. The absence of the state makes for 20-hour daily electricity blackouts and an almost nonexistent education system in many areas. Patent Search. F.i.g.h.t C.l.u.b.

Want to save more tax? Add NPS to your CTC

For majority of taxpayers, Rs 1 lakh tax-saving investment limit under Section 80 C is the only one which can be availed to save tax. The reason is very few employers/employees are aware of additional tax benefit which can be availed under Section 80CCD (2). Under this section, up to 10 per cent of an employee's basic salary put in the New Pension Scheme is tax deductible. This means a person with an annual basic salary of Rs 5 lakh (nearly Rs 40,000 a month) can get an additional deduction of Rs 50,000 if her/his employer puts this money on her/his behalf in the NPS. Assuming that s/he will have other income (bonus, special allowance, interest, etc), which puts her/him in the 30 per cent tax bracket, the NPS investment under Section 80CCD (2) will reduce her/his tax liability by almost Rs 15,000.

It totals four million words across nearly 10,000 pages, but is incomplete. In the first volume (Our Oriental Heritage, which covers the history of the East through 1933), Will Durant stated that he wanted to include the history of the West through the early 20th century. Unusual clock. War of Currents. In the War of Currents era (sometimes, War of the Currents or Battle of Currents) in the late 1880s, George Westinghouse and Thomas Edison became adversaries due to Edison's promotion of direct current (DC) for electric power distribution over alternating current (AC).

War of Currents

Thomas Edison, American inventor and businessman, known as "The Wizard of Menlo Park", pushed for the development of a DC power network. George Westinghouse, American entrepreneur and engineer, financially backed the development of a practical AC power network. Edison's direct-current system generated and distributed electric power at the same voltage as used by the customer's lamps and motors. Search Kashmir. At The Edge. Running a startup.

Malleus Maleficarum. The Malleus Maleficarum[2] (commonly rendered into English as "Hammer of [the] Witches";[3] Der Hexenhammer in German) is a treatise on the prosecution of witches, written in 1486 by Heinrich Kramer, a German Catholic clergyman. The book was first published in Speyer, Germany, in 1487.[4] James Sprenger is also often attributed as an author, but some scholars now believe that he became associated with the Malleus Maleficarum largely as a result of Kramer's wish to lend his book as much official authority as possible.[5] The main purpose of the Malleus was to systematically refute arguments claiming that witchcraft does not exist, to discredit those who expressed skepticism about its reality, to claim that those who practised witchcraft were more often women than men, and to educate magistrates on the procedures that could find them out and convict them.
