Triple talaq Bill in next Parlt session

Important bills fail Parliament's nod

With the triple talaq bill failing to get through Rajya Sabha on the last day of the Winter Session of Parliament on Friday, the Narendra Modi government has now chose to bring it during the Budget Session which will commence from January 29. There is anger among people on this issue."Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar slammed the Congress for stalling the Bill".

The government introduced in the Lok Sabha the Constitutional Amendment Bill that would give the National Commission for Backward Classes the same powers that the SC and ST Commission have.

Congress issued three-line whip for its members in Rajya Sabha, asking them to remain present in the house on Friday. In the lower house, where the ruling party has a majority, the bill was passed.

Musk said in an Instagram post that, at 2,500 tons of thrust, the rocket is equivalent to 18 Boeing 747 aircraft at full throttle. SpaceX also announced on Twitter that it is now targeting the Zuma launch for 7 January from launch pad 40 in Florida.

Criticising the government, Congress leader Deepender Singh Hooda said it was a government of Ordinance. "The bill should be sent to the select committee", Sibal told ANI.

"We are committed to it (bill) and assure the Muslim women that this illegal practice (of instant triple talaq) will be abolished", said Mr Naqvi.

Having said that, in the specific case the real reason why the Opposition is dragging its feet on passing the triple talaq Bill is that, true to type, it is keen to appease the conservative lobby among the Muslims, which essentially controls the community's dominant narrative.

'Bomb cyclone' to bring high winds and low temps
However, if the storm heads east and out into seas, the amount of snow will decrease and wind speeds will die down. Forecasters are calling the process causing these low temps in Florida a " Bomb Cyclone " or " Bombogenesis '".

The BJP leader's remarks came as the deadlock over the bill in the Rajya Sabha continued on Thursday with the government rejecting the opposition's insistence on sending the bill to the Select Committee for detailed scrutiny.

"The Opposition obstructed the (OBC Commission) Bill with a meaningless amendment in the Rajya Sabha".

The highlight of the 22-day session that began on December 15 was the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017.

Alexa will soon be able to control ovens and microwaves
For example, a customer can say "Alexa, defrost three pounds of chicken" or "Alexa, microwave for 50 seconds on high". Amazon confirmed the feature had gone live in the USA , with other countries to follow shortly.

The Budget Session of Parliament is set to commence on January 29 and the Union Budget for 2018-19 will be presented on February 1, the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) recommended on Friday. The Board has said that the definition of the word "talaq" in the bill takes into account all forms of divorce over and above instant triple talaq, thus criminalising all forms.
