    LONDON: With the announcement of Mayor Boris Johnson of investing £100 million fund in cycling to create what is being called a ‘mini-Holland’ revolution, London is seeing a vast difference in its earlier face.
    Massive Push Given to cycling in London
    Since 2001, the cycling on the main road of London has risen by 173%. Looking at this, it has being announced by the government that this number should be doubled by next decade.

    This ‘mini-Holland’ plan covers the outer boroughs of all 8 cities. They finally got the funding for transformative and substantial changes to form cyclist friendly streets. Out of these 8, three boroughs – Waltham Forest, Kingston and Enfield have been selected for complete mini-Holland status, with an amount receiving up to £30 million each.

    A series of measures are focused on creating cycle-friendly low-traffic neighbourhoods in order to improve cycling in residential areas in Waltham Forest. Moreover, a semi-segregated superhighway route will be developed.

    A major cycle hug will be formed in Kingston with the transformation of plaza outside Kingston station. There will be the introduction of new high-quality cycling routes together with a Thames Riverside Boardway.

    Enfield Town centre will entirely be reformed, with three cycle hubs distributed across the borough and separated superhighways linking key destinations.

    Johnson shared his thought on the same saying, “I have been incredibly impressed with the standard of the mini-Holland entries and by the thirst among all the finalists to transform themselves into better places for people. It has been so hard to choose between them that I have decided that all shall have prizes. Areas once terra incognita for the bicycle will, over time, become every bit as cycle-friendly as their Dutch equivalents – places that suburbs and towns all over Britain will want to copy.”

    Moreover, Kingston Council’s lead member, Councillor Simon James said, “We are delighted that our ambitious bid has been successful. Ours is a cycling vision for everyone with a blend of exciting, iconic schemes and high-quality, everyday infrastructure. Kingston already has one of the highest rates of cycling in outer London and we will be able to give even more people the opportunity to enjoy the environmental, social, health and economic benefits of living in a Biking Borough.”

    MOSCOW/WASHINGTON:Sergei Lavrov, the foreign minister of Russia, told John Kerry, the US secretary of state that the Western sanctions over the dispute of Crimea will bring threatened consequences with it and hence, is unacceptable. In Kremlin, despite an outcry from Kiev and the West, President Vladimir Putin signed a treaty making the Crimea peninsula part of Russia which was earlier the part of Ukraine.
    Russia Warns of Consequences and Threatened with Fresh Sanctions from US due to Putin's Crimea Move

    Vladimir Putin was condemned by the White House for this act and it was said that Russia is getting prepared for the fresh round of sanctions as a result of the most awful East-West crisis since the Cold War.

    As per Putin’s statement, he is not into seizing any other part of Ukraine. Besides this Kerry warned that it could be a major challenge for the international community if any further step is taken by Russia for the invasion of any other part of Ukraine.

    The resident of Crimea made their independent choice in line with the UN charter and the international law, which was respected and accepted by Russia. As per the statement of a Russian foreign ministry, “while the sanctions introduced by the United States and the European Union are unacceptable and will not remain without consequences.”

    Putin, in reference to the Lavrov’s remarks said, “Western attempts to frighten Russia with sanctions would be viewed as an act of aggression, and that Moscow would retaliate.” Kerry paraphrased the position of Washington saying the takeover of Crimea and the referendum were unacceptable and illegal. Moreover, Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman said, “We don’t accept them and there will continue to be costs and consequences,” she told a daily briefing. “We are continuing to prepare additional sanctions and we haven’t taken options off the table.”

    As West readies sanctions, Crimea head towards formally joining Russia that could take months in the process.US reported that the votes done “under duress” will not be recognized while the EU says the vote will be contemplated as “invalid and illegitimate” under this referendum .
    Crimea to merge with Russia on Monday that the European condemn to recognize
    After voting to split from Ukraine , Crimea on Monday formally applied to join Russia as Europe was all planned to hit Moscow in the worst East-West with a wave of sanctions that stood-off since the Cold War. As per the partial outcomes from Sunday’s referendum, the huge number of 95.5 percent of voters mostly the native Russian-speaking peninsula select to secede from Ukraine.

    The amalgamation to apply to merge with Russia will begin early Monday with Crimea’s regional assembly meet. However the whole process is mired in uncertainty for a particular region that is largely dependent on the Ukraine mainland and could take few months.

    Since, the Kosovo’s 2008 declaration of independence from Serbia , there has been an uptight international disapproval to the vote, which could fundamentally observe the most overhauling restructuring of the map of Europe.

    European foreign ministers are apparently predicted to unfurl sanctions in Brussels on 17.03.2014 . The sanction list will include ban on visa and asset freezes against sharp figures in Moscow. However, the Russian government officials are not believed to be affected by these sanctions.

    On Sunday , US President Barack obama gave a call to Vladimir Putin-his Russian counterpart to make him clear that the the international community and United States will never recognize the referendum stating it to be under duress of Russian military intervention.

    LONDON: David Cameron, The British Prime Minister delineated the reforms of European Union on Sunday as he thinks it was necessary to stop Britain being “sucked into a United States of Europe”, ahead of the membership referendum which is scheduled to be help in 2017.

    He further declared that he would even campaign for the country to remain in the EU till the time he manages to reduce the influence of bloc in the affairs of British. It is for the first time that the prime minister outlined 7 priorities ranging from restricting the new citizen of European Union to work in Britain to limiting their rights here. He appealed to the Eurosceptic members of his party that the said changes would require patience and time. These members were demanding tough laws for the EU.

    Quoting the words of Mr. Cameron, “This is an ambitious agenda for a new European Union. Delivering it will take time and patience, as well as strong relationships with our key allies and goodwill — not shouting from the side-lines. It will require a negotiation with our European partners. Some changes will best be achieved by alterations to the European treaties. Others can be achieved by different means.”

    In order to renegotiate the complex treaties of 28-nation bloc, the reforms are achievable in spite of the ostensible absence of zeal from Britain’s EU allies. Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, during her visit to London was pretty cool on the reform agenda. Similar was the case with Francois Hollande, the French President who said the change in the treaty was not in the priority list.
    British Prime Minister
    However, Cameron while outlining his priorities said that the national parliaments should work together in order to block the unwanted legislation of European Union and EU should not always look at national governments to seek power. He further said that British courts and police should operate without the interference from European institutions. Moreover the EU red tape should also not do unnecessary interference in the businesses of the country. In a way he said that he wants a Britain free from any kind of obligation.

    Cameron said, “People are worried that Britain is being sucked into a United States of Europe. That may be what some others want, but it is not for us.”However, the next referendum will be conducted only if Cameron is re-elected next year when the two other main party leaders refused to back his pledge at Westminster.

    LONDON: Both the countries (Russia and US) remain unsuccessful in resolving the Cold-War-style crisis flashed by the military intervention of Moscow in peninsular Ukrainian and Crimea’s weekend survey after connecting with the Kremlin law.
    Russia and US Failed to Mend a Wall Ahead of Crimea Vote
    John Kerry, the US secretary of state met Sergei Lavrov (his Russian counterpart) in London believing that the Moscow-backed referendum that was held on Sunday in the strategic headland of Black Seaand was actually seized by the troop of Kremlin could be postponed or obviated.

    As indicated by the US officials, the country still have expectations from Moscow that they will not take any step further in order to invade the area of around two million people out of which the major folk comprises of the Russian speakersin a move that would worsen the prevalent East-West confrontation since the fall of the Berlin Wall in the year 1989.

    After the talk of about three hours with Kerry, in a lavish US ambassador’s residence which is situated in the central part on London, Lavrov told the reporters that West and Russia still don’t have any common view regarding the matter of Ukraine by saying, “We have no common vision of the situation, Differences remain”Lavrov further added that in the result of referendum Russia would respect the will of the people of Cremia.
    Barack Obama, the US president had earlier revealed in Washington that he is in favour of some diplomatic solution via which the country can warm the Moscow of “consequences” if none was found.

    With the statement coming from the self-declared pro-Kremlin head of Crimea, who firstly called the controversial referendum,people got aware that he is in no sense expecting Russia to annex his region right away which eventually gave a hope to Western negotiators.

    While confronting the reporters SergiyAksyonovin the Crimean capital of Simferopol said, “It would take a maximum of one year,”

    The tremendously astonishing incident shaken up everyone that with all the technology and mechanical mastery we’ve go, an aircraft can disappear like this. As per the White House spokesman (US), a new search region for missing Malaysia Aircraft Flight 370 with 239 people on board may be extended in the Indian Ocean. Significantly streching the potential location of the aircraft, the Indian Ocean would be unchanging and consistent with the theory that the Boeing 777 may have taken a roundabout to the west towards the Andaman Sea after it took off from Kuala Lumpur en-route to Beijing last week. However the Malaysian authorities were not available to comment to specify the nature of the new detail.
    Malaysia Plane Missing
    The disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines plane in the history of modern aviation is one of the most bizzare mysteries. Despite an intense search by dozen countries across Southeast Asia and navies, there has neither been any reliable trace nor any clue of the debris of jet. The faint electronic signals picked up by satellites failed to give no good information about where the aircraft plane was heading adding to the ambiguity and agony of the family of the passengers.

    A little light is shed on the mystery of the disappearing plane through the signals received by satellites that kind of indicated about the incident on board. The troubleshooting system transmitted by pings indicated the aircraft’s capability of communicating but this alone is not the evidence that the jet was on the ground, or in the air. The companies Boeing and Rolls-Royce involved in supplying its Trent engines had avoid to comment. Malaysian officials earlier denied that the airplane flew for hours sending technical data after losing contact with air traffic controllers.

    Tyrannosaurs suggests pygmy species of the carnivorous dinosaurs that included the deadly T Rex has been discovered in the colder climes of Alaska.The fossilised skull of small Tyrannosaurus found in icy northern Alaska has captivated the attention of all scientists.
    70 million-year-old dinosaur skull discovered in northern Alaska
    As per the examinations conducted by the Scientists, the fossilised skull remains thought to be around 70 million years old. The maxilla , jaw and fragments of the skull roof concluded that the specie is less than half the size of the 60in (152.4cm) skull of T Rex. The research team of the project realized that finding a fully-intact skull specimen of this size is extremely unreal.

    Analysis has shown that the T Rex is believed to be humungous of all carnivorous dinosaurs ever to walk the Earth.

    Study co-authors from the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Texas reported that the smaller body size may have shown the species’ partial isolation in the Arctic region and adaption to scarcer resources in the north. ‘The ‘pygmy tyrannosaur’ itself is really cool as it reflects about the biological richness of the ancient polar and environment that was like in the ancient Arctic,’

    Paleontologists upon further inspection, at the University of Calgary identified that the strange, bumpy huge rock was the skull of a large horned dinosaur known as pachyrhinosaurs that roamed parts of present-day Alberta and Alaska.During a routine fossil search , it is found that the biological features measured over six metres in length were most likely used for mating and fighting other animals. The dinosaurs’s head based on the preliminary estimates would have been likely of a older individual with an enormous bony structure over the snout.

    Researchers will be undertaking experiments on the bone to determine its origina as they are not sure whether the new skull is a new species of dinosaur.
