Legal Foundation a national nonprofit that took on Johnson’s case for free when it learned of his plight"There is no reason for saying boys shouldn’t take part in dance except for outdated gender stereotypes" she saidThe foundation said the exclusion is a violation of the US Constitution’s 14th Amendment which guarantees equal protection to its citizensThe MSHSL said it doesn’t comment on pending or threatened litigation but its policy says that girls dance teams "may not rise to the level of a gender equity activity for the purpose of Title IX"The organization that oversees high school athletics in Wisconsin does not prohibit male students from dance competitionJohnson was excluded from dancing in all of the routines the team performed in competitions last year beginning with

Folarin Falana aka Falz the Bahd Guy The Muslim body had announced that it will no longer approach the court to seek a ban on the video In a statement on Tuesday its Director Prof Ishaq Akintola urged CAN to declare its position on the matter “We have no other option than to openly ask the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) if it is behind this move Is CAN leadership aware of this segregational campaign Did CAN initiate it or did it just endorse it Should we also believe rumours of CAN’s surreptitious meetings with high ranking foreign diplomats in unholy hours of the day Is CAN aware of the security implications of such meetings Is CAN with Nigeria or against Nigeria Et tu CAN It had better not be “What kind of people are we that we continue to drag ourselves backwards while the rest of the world is going forward Election campaign should be issue-based Religion is not given any room in politics in other climes Why should we be looking at the faith of a candidate and not his pedigree his integrity and his antecedence “It is a pity that CAN still pushes primordial sentiment like religion to the front burner when advanced countries only consider credibility and ability to deliver Why is it that CAN cannot tolerate Muslim leadership after Muslims have tolerated Christian leadership for so long” He asked The Islamic human rights outfit also wondered why Muslims should not be allowed to rule for the same long period that Christians had been in office “It is on record that of the 16 wasted years of PDP rule a Muslim (former President Umaru Yaradua) only ruled for two years

What if Muslims also ask their fellow Muslims not to vote for any Christian candidate What do you think will happen But we will not descend so low We will not ask Muslims not to vote for Christian candidates Whoever is behind this video and the anti-Muslim campaign in general is promoting anarchy” it added The organization argued that “Nigeria is a heterogeneous multi-religious and multi-cultural project which belongs to nobody and it is bigger than any section For any progress to be made Muslims and Christians as well as all ethnic groups it said have to sink their differences “We all have to work together Nigeria is a wrong candidate for ‘possessing your possession’ slogans” Akintola admitted that Nigeria was blessed with good Christian candidates and credible Muslim candidates He urged Nigerians to create an enabling environment for the emergence of such good candidates Narrowing the search to any particular religion or ethnic group he argued is not only self-defeating but also counter-productive “In a nutshell we reiterate our conviction that we do not believe in religious politics We Muslims are prepared to peacefully coexist with our Christian neighbours in Nigeria We urge Muslims to get their PVC and vote for both Christian and Muslim candidates of their choice The only proviso is that such candidates must be reformers and game changers

2014 12:05 am The government should ensure that at least in BJP-run states 24/7 power becomes a reality by December 2016 Related News In my last article ‘100 day challenge’ (IE June 16) I suggested actions that could restore investor confidence and boost industrial and economic growth Of course economic growth is only an instrument for improving well being For that the government needs to take measures to provide electricity clean water fuel and air effective and affordable healthcare quality education and skills connectivity through roads and internet and quick and inexpensive justice Only when these are attained can the aspirations of the people for “achhe din” be considered fulfilled It is a five- or 10-year agenda but measures taken in the first 100 days can create confidence Some are as follows: One initiate a National Jyotigram Yojana for 24/7 power supply Power round the clock at stable voltage can stimulate productive activities in rural areas to generate employment As the share of agricultural GDP has come down to around 15 per cent substantial employment in rural areas needs to be generated in non-farm activities Gujarat provided 24/7 electricity to its 18000- plus villages in two and a half years The UPA’s Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana has yet to match that after 10 years The government should ensure that at least in BJP-run states 24/7 power becomes a reality by December 2016 The advantage of 24/7 power goes to households too In Gujarat some households with LPG cylinders prefer to use induction cookers because it is convenient and less expensive Considering the need to provide clean cooking fuels to protect against the adverse impact of indoor air pollution resulting from cooking with fuelwood and dung cakes and the difficulty of delivering LPG to all households on a regular basis this is an attractive option Two action must be taken toclean up the Ganga Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to clean up the river In 2008 I had reviewed the Ganga Action Plan launched in 1984 for the Supreme Court After nearly 25 years the Ganga is more polluted in terms of the coliform count Many cities had sewage treatment plants of inadequate capacities because they were delayed and populations were larger than projected Just about half the collected sewage was treated and large sections of population were not connected to the sewerage system Some were not properly maintained for want of funds If the Ganga or any river has to be cleaned up these issues have to be taken care of Ensure that everyone is connected to the sewerage system that sewage treatment plants of adequate capacity keeping in mind likely population growth are built in time adequate resources are provided to operate and maintain them by imposing an appropriate sewage treatment charge effluent standards are strictly enforced on all industrial units discharging effluents in the river open defecation is eliminated and farmers use fertilisers and pesticides in ways that minimise contamination of runoff This is a huge task and the cost may seem large but compared to the costs on public health it is small A determined government can accomplish much of it in five years if it begins in earnest as soon as possible Three air quality in cities must be improved The World Health Organisation has labelled Delhi one of the most polluted cities in the world The adverse impact on health calls for action to improve air quality in our cities The major contributor to air pollution is motorised vehicles particularly diesel ones the share of which is increasing due to diesel subsidy Car ownership is increasing at a rapid pace and will accelerate with faster growth A major step that needs to be taken is implementing Euro VI standards on automobile emissions by 2020 Currently we are almost a decade behind European standards The automobile industry will point to higher costs but owners should bear that cost and not the average citizen through dirty air The government should announce a roadmap to clean up our air Four ensure equality of opportunity through quality education Free compulsory education for eight years has no meaning if it is not quality education A major problem is teacher absenteeism To correct this teachers should be made accountable to a local education committee consisting of parents and panchayat representatives The committee should have a major say in a teacher’s transfer salary and promotions Also with 24/7 electricity and internet connectivity computerised instruction can be used to improve the effectiveness of teaching A three-year-old from a socially disadvantaged family has a far smaller vocabulary and lower cognitive development than a child of professional parents This disadvantage persists To overcome this anganwadis have to be made places of learning and excitement Again programmes like Sesame Street in the US or Gali Gali Sim Sim its Indian version are found to be effective in overcoming some of this disadvantage We need to develop new tools and programmes that can make anganwadis places where disadvantages in vocabulary and cognitive development can be overcome Five there must be quick and affordable justice for all Judicial delays are a major contributor to corruption and poor governance Judicial reforms are vital to make justice quick and inexpensive Only then can all Indians feel they live in a just society A committee on how to make justice quick and inexpensive should be instituted and made to give recommendations in six months Six promote agricultural growth to contain inflation Gujarat has had nearly 10 per cent growth in agricultural GDP for a decade This has been ascribed to the use of GM cotton the diversification of cash crops made feasible by roads that connect farmers to organised markets the soil health-card scheme and to a large number of check dams and groundwater recharge schemes This can be replicated in many parts of the country Increasing agricultural output is critical to containing food price inflation which has been a major contributor to the consumer price index over recent years Increase in the production of fruits and vegetables reducing wastage improving their distribution so that farmers get a higher price and consumers pay a lower price are all possible by reforming the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee Act The government will find it easier to take tough decisions in the first 100 days Many policy decisions show positive impact after two or three years If decisions are taken now the government can reap political rewards in time for the next election There is also the danger that with its comfortable majority the government may feel complacent and postpone tough decisions which never get taken
