Our Nation Delimma
I never Published an Article but the following heart-wrenching Incident forced me to do so which took place yesterday at Rahim Yar Khan Pakistan, where a father hanged his son because he wouldn't stop crying due to hunger while his wife left him few days back when he failed to provide them food to survive due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic. We said that a father is nothing without his son but what will be the condition of that father when he tied rope around a neck of his his own child knowing that he is going to kill him. I can just feel pain and anguish. Nothing else.. Why? Because we are equally responsible for all this.
How many students are studying in different universities of Pakistan but how many know that many employees working there are on daily wages?
I was member of my university hostel mess management committee for the last two years but just two months back i came to know that some waiters and dish washers are working there on daily wages for the last 10 to 15 years. Some of them have school going kids and living on rent. They are waiting for their monthly salary which is not more than 15,000pkr ($100).
When we the students busy praying for our Vacations they are worried about cut-off from their salaries due to those Vacations.
But unfortunately we'll do nothing neither our leaders will. We as a Nation Failed in this and we didn't have any effective strategies.
What will they do now when no one is there to give them job or provide them something to eat for their survival?
We as a Muslims also failed because we forget advices of our Heroes like Hazrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab said if a dog dies hungry on the banks of the River Euphrates, Umar will be responsible for dereliction of duty. Hence we and our Leaders are Responsible for all this.

Sub continent of South Asia consists of Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India , all of these countries are struggling economies, the GDP growth ratio is also very low than the rest of the world, there several reasons for the slow development growth rate, but one of the biggest reasons is the unrest and political instability and conflicts between Pakistan and India,
India wants to establish it's hegemony in the sub continent, being huge in population, so in order to do so it has been poking it's nose in the internal affairs of it's neighboring counties like, Bangladesh, Sri Lank, Afghanistan and Pakistan,
In Indian Occupied Kashmir the world has witnessed ever worst human rights violation in all regards by India for more than 70 years, even Today the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir are facing ever longest curfew of about more than 250 days,
India has become one of the more insecure countries in the world as BJP Government lead by Narindera Modi who is of the mindset to make India a complete Hindu State, as RSS's fascist approach has core agenda,
The media is considered to be the fourth pillar of a nation state, after Parliament, Administration and Judiciary, Media plays a very vital role in mind making of the masses over the importance national issues, but the Indian media has forgot all the basic rules of Journalism, they have ruined the soul of that how should media report, Media is not supposed to promote the agenda of the government but the Indian media is doing this, some renowned Indian TV anchors are deliberately provoking Muslims genocide through their hate debates, Arnab Goswami, Anjana Om Keshyap, Sudhir Chowdhry are one of those so called media professionals, who misbehave with their panelists during their programs, their Top agenda is to always do propaganda against Pakistan every now and then, Indian Media has prove to be very much irresponsible when there was a tension between India and Pakistan during February 2019, they intentionally created the war hysteria,
Even Today when Covid 19 Pandemic has shaken the whole world, it has spread to more than 198 countries and some hundred thousand people have died so far being victims to this Pandemic,
The Indian Media is again working on its hate promotion agenda against the Muslims of India, their channels are blaming Tableeghi Jamaat for the spread of Covid 19 in, where as the number show that they are less than 1000, while right now the Covid 19 patients in India are more than 12000, Muslims of India are being victimized as they are nit being allowed to do their businesses for earning their daily bread and butter, they are even not being treated in the hospitals,
Indian media is deliberately working on the agenda of few corporate giants who are patronizing Indian Government in order to get their vested financial interests,
Many of the international channels have reported the indian media is spreading the hate that may lead to Muslim genocide, if the same pattern of the biased reporting carried on,
The world should wake up now, if the Indian atrocities are not stopped it may give birth to an endless war, and if this war erupted the whole world will be effected by this, the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir should have been given the right of self determination, as per the resolutions of United Nations,
The Indian Media should stop spreading hatred, they should highlight the basic and fundamental issues of their country, it's pitty that a self proclaimed largest democracy has become a worst autocratic nation Today, 50 % of Indian population openly deficates due to unavailability of Toilets,
World can't afford anymore wars, So Indian media should have to be sensible enough
The World Bank In Pakistan
Pakistan has important strategic endowments and development potential. The increasing proportion of Pakistan’s youth provides the country with a potential demographic dividend and a challenge to provide adequate services and employment.
In July 2019, Pakistan entered into a 39-month Extended Fund Facility (EFF) arrangement with the International Monetary Fund. Stabilization measures under the EFF were expected to moderate aggregate demand pressures in the economy. Leading indicators suggested a slowdown in growth in the first 7-8 months of FY20. The output of large-scale manufacturing (which accounts for around 50 percent of industrial output) contracted by 3.4 percent in Jul-Jan FY20. The agriculture sector, however, registered growth in the rice and livestock sub-sectors.
However, the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus since February 2020 has brought economic activity to a near-halt. Most of the country has been placed under a partial lockdown. The closure of non-essential businesses and domestic supply chain disruptions are having a significant impact on wholesale and retail trade and transport, storage and communication, the largest sub-sectors of the services sector. The drop in domestic and global demand is also compounding the strains on the industrial sector, which is hit by both supply and demand shocks. In addition, the country’s main industrial sector – textiles and apparel – is highly exposed to COVID-19-related disruptions due to its labor-intensity.
Average inflation increased to 11.8 percent during Jul-Mar FY20 (from 6.8 percent in Jul-Mar FY19) reflecting upward adjustments in administrated prices and exchange rate depreciation pass-through. The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) maintained a tight monetary stance during this period, keeping the policy rate at 13.25 percent to dampen inflationary expectations. However, as the COVID-19 pandemic spread, it reduced the policy rate to 11.0 percent in March 2020.
The Current Account Deficit (CAD) narrowed to 1.0 percent of GDP in Jul-Feb FY20, from 3.5 percent in the same period in FY19, thanks to a 17.5 percent decline in goods imports. This, together with large multilateral disbursements and higher foreign investment flows, helped shore up gross international reserves to US$13.2 billion (as of March 27th, 2020)—or equivalent to 3.5 months of imports. However, due to global developments, foreign investors have offloaded more than half of their position in domestic securities since February 2020. The exchange rate, which had remained relatively stable through June-February FY20, depreciated by 7.3 percent in March.
In the first half of FY20, the fiscal deficit stood at 2.3 percent of GDP, compared to 2.7 percent in the first six months of FY19. The fiscal adjustment was achieved through increases in domestic revenue collections and slower growth in non-interest recurrent expenditures. However, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to put significant pressure on expenditures whereas revenue collections are expected to be negatively impacted. Pakistan’s public debt, which stood at 87.5 percent of GDP at the end of FY19, may rise as a result.
Real GDP growth is projected to contract by 1.3 percent in FY20 as domestic and global economic activity slows down sharply in the last four months of the fiscal year. The outbreak of COVID-19 will impact growth beyond FY20. Under the baseline scenario, growth will remain muted in FY21 before reaching 3.2 percent in FY22. Inflation is expected to average 11.8 percent in FY20 and to gradually decline thereafter.
The current account deficit is projected to narrow to 1.9 percent in FY20, as imports contract more than exports. Export growth is expected to remain negative in FY21 but to subsequently rebound. Similarly, imports are expected to recover slowly from FY22 on wards, as domestic industrial activities pick up. Remittances are expected to contract in FY20 and FY21, respectively, due to lower growth in the Gulf Cooperation Council economies. Increased multilateral and bilateral flows are expected to be the main financing sources over the medium-term.
The fiscal deficit is expected to remain elevated in FY20 and FY21. Revenue mobilization efforts will be negatively impacted by subdued domestic activity, while expenditures will increase to contain the spread of COVID-19 and support the economy. The fiscal deficit is expected to fall gradually by FY22 as the impact of the crisis tapers-off. However, the public debt-to-GDP ratio is expected to increase and remain elevated over the medium-term, with Pakistan’s exposure to debt-related shocks remaining high.
There are considerable downside risks to the outlook. The immediate challenge for the government is to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, while minimizing economic losses and protecting the poorest. In the medium-to-long term, the government should remain focused on implementing structural reforms to boost private investment sustainably.
RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT IN SERVICE SECTOR DURING COVID-19
A decades-in length center around inventory network enhancement to limit costs, diminish inventories, and drive up resource use has evacuated cushions and adaptability to ingest disruptions─and COVID-19 delineates that numerous organizations are not completely mindful of the helplessness of their store network connections to worldwide stuns.
Luckily, new store network innovations are developing that significantly improve perceivability over the start to finish inventory network, and bolster organizations' capacity to oppose such stuns. The customary direct inventory network model is changing into advanced stockpile systems (DSNs), where utilitarian storehouses are separated and associations become associated with their total inventory system to empower start to finish perceivability, coordinated effort, dexterity, and improvement.
Utilizing cutting edge innovations, for example, the Internet of Things, man-made brainpower, mechanical autonomy, and 5G, DSNs are intended to foresee and address future difficulties. Regardless of whether it is a "dark swan" occasion like COVID-19, exchange war, demonstration of war or fear based oppression, administrative change, work contest, abrupt spikes popular, or provider liquidation, associations that send DSNs will be prepared to manage the unforeseen.
During the initial a long time of the flare-up, there has been significant worries about the impact on supply chains that begin or experience China. There have been numerous manufacturing plant shutdowns and interruptions have been felt everywhere throughout the production network during Q1. Trucking ability to deliver merchandise from processing plants to ports is at around 60-80% of typical limit, with products confronting postponements of around 8-10 days on their excursion to ports. There stays a vulnerability around client request. Clients that have pre-booked coordination’s limit will be unable to utilize it, while clients may vie for prioritization in accepting an industrial facility's yield, just as the unusualness of the planning and degree of interest bounce back could cause mistaking signals for various weeks.
To close, the one thing that people are greater at than some other conscious living thing is our capacity to gain from our aggregate encounters and actualize those learnings to return more grounded. From a simply business point of view, COVID-19 presents a large number of genuine and once in a while exceptional difficulties for associations cutting over the business condition, including a potential liquidity crunch, worldwide inventory network disturbances, increment in exchange boundaries, and a moving customer attitude. Be that as it may, the
post-COVID world will see advanced advances assuming a basic empowering job in conveying upgrades all through the expansiveness of organizations, including stronger stockpile chains, fundamentally improved client encounters, and savvy enhanced procedures to convey business results.

South Koreas presidential office says no suspicious activities have been detected in North Korea, a statement made today after reports surfaced that Kim Jong Un was in fragile condition after recent heart surgery. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un watches a missile test in North Korea on July 25, 2019. Source: Associated Press The presidential Blue House said it couldnt confirm Kims current health. CNN had cited an anonymous US official who said Kim was in grave danger after an unspecified surgery. Later, another US official told the same network that the concerns about Kims health are credible but the severity is hard to assess. Earlier, Daily NK had cited anonymous sources saying Kim was recovering from heart surgery in the capital Pyongyang and that his condition was improving. Speculation about Kims health was raised after he missed the celebration of his late grandfather and state founder Kim Il Sung on April 15, the countrys most important holiday.

FOTO/ Autor desconocido Tokio, – El cubano Alfredo Despaigne fue seleccionado para el Equipo Estrella de la década del 2010 de los Halcones de SoftBank, actuales monarcas de la Liga Japonesa de Béisbol Profesional (NPB), destacan hoy medios de prensa. Nacido en la oriental provincia de Santiago de Cuba, Despaigne, de 33 años, resultó el más votado por los fanáticos en el renglón de bateador designado, en la encuesta del portal especializado local Baseball King. Los lectores seleccionaron a sus jugadores favoritos de los dos últimos lustros en cada posición y el toletero antillano y el cerrador estadounidense Dennis Sarfate fueron los únicos extranjeros en la lista. Actualmente, el slugger se encuentra recuperándose de una lesión en una de sus manos y a la espera de las últimas disposiciones sobre la campaña 2020 de la NPB, que postergó su inicio debido al impacto del virus Sars-Cov-2, causante de la enfermedad Covid-19. Tras finalizar en octubre pasado la última temporada, Despaigne fue anunciado como el bateador designado de la nómina ideal de la Liga del Pacífico por segundo curso consecutivo. El exponente de la isla terminó con promedio ofensivo de .259, 36 cuadrangulares, 116 imparables, nueve dobles y 61 carreras anotadas, estadísticas que le valieron para superar con 140 votos a Jabari Blash, de Estados Unidos, dueño de 69. Completan el plantel de la década Takuya Kai (R), Seiichi Uchikawa (1B), Yuichi Honda (2B), Nobuhiro Matsuda (3B), Kenta Imamiya (SS), Yuya Hasegawa (LF), Yuki Yanagita (CF) y Akira Nakamura (RF), así como los lanzadores Tadashi Settsu (abridor) y Yuito Mori (relevista). De acuerdo con la web beisboljapones.com, la mayoría de estos jugadores forman parte actualmente del conjunto, lo cual explica el nivel de los vigentes monarcas de la competición, la segunda de más nivel dentro del béisbol mundial. Softbank superó 4-3 en el choque de cierre a Gigantes de Yomiuri en el Tokio Dome, para cerrar 4-0 la serie de 2019, sumar su tercer trofeo consecutivo y tomar revancha del último enfrentamiento entre ambas franquicias en el año 2000, cuando cedió 2-4 ante el mismo rival.
