Supershe 1

Nowadays it is becoming a trend to celebrate birthday, marriage day or any small occasion making it as a special memory. It is a good news for women who are looking for a break from the routine activities and from men for a while.

These days everyone is interested in taking vacations to refresh themselves and especially to destress themselves. There is a holiday resort on an island off the coast of Finland for females and no entry for the men. The island is also known as  SuperSheIsland.

This idea for vacation destination particularly for women born from the thoughts of American entrepreneur Kristina Roth. To spent her vacation once she went to Ashram in Calabasas, Calif., and the nearby Ranch Malibu, where she noticed the presence of men more than the women. So it is inconvenient for the women to focus and concentrate on themselves. When men around even they could not relax.

Kristina Roth a former CEO of a consultancy business said the New York Post that When there was a cute guy, women would put on lipstick. The idea [at SuperShe island] is, hey, focus on yourself — don’t try to get your hormones up.

She had fallen in love with a local man. Initially, she was reluctant to buy a land when her boyfriend said there was a beautiful island for sale. She said that his parents own an island on the archipelago, and he kept telling me, the island next door is for sale.

She told that she just bought a beautiful piece of land in Turks and Caicos and she told that she was really not interested. But when she saw the land she was fascinated with the wooded utopia. Currently, SuperShe Island is under construction in the Helsinki archipelago and it is expected to be open in July 2018.

She asked all the members of Congress to work together to defeat their opposition party BJP in the next elections. Before Rahul Gandhi took the position Sonia Gandhi has been worked as the party president for 19 years.

Addressing the Congress Parliamentary Party she added every leader of the Congress should follow his words as he was the existing president of Congress Parliamentary Party (CPP). She asked all the party members to support Rahul Gandhi and work with him as you did to me to strengthen the party.

Speaking at the CPP Sonia Gandhi said After a long time we have met as a group for this I seek your indulgence. We need your advice and suggestions to revive the party’s fortunes. The progress of the party has already started under Rahul leadership.

She said we have elected Rahul Gandhi as new party president and there is no doubt about that. On your behalf and my own, I wish him all the best she quoted. I know that all of you will work with him with the same dedication, loyalty and enthusiasm as you did with me.”

By the recent by-elections of Gujarat and Rajasthan, we have proved that the winds are coming towards us, Sonia said. I take this opportunity to congratulate all the leaders and workers of the party for the result.

Sonia said she would continue to work as the party’s parliamentary chairperson and will work with the president and with others to defeat the BJP in next elections.

She also attacked d Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government and said this government under the theme game of maximum publicity, minimum government, or put another way, ‘maximum marketing, minimum delivery’.”

The government changes old schemes which are actually introduced by the Congress and it calls new scheme including new health insurance scheme, with the “flourish of a magician she said.

Aadhaar

New Delhi:

Like the 12-digit Aadhaar number for every Indian, the central government is planning to spend Rs 50 crore to assign a unique Aadhaar-like IDs or UID to each of the country’s milk-producing cow. The scheme for linking Aadhaar card to cows was first proposed in the year 2015.

As per the reports, this scheme will be implemented by the Agriculture Ministry. As a part of the scheme in the first schedule, the government will spend 5o crores to cover about 40 million cows. The programme is also known as  Pashu Sanjivini and which was launched under the National Mission on Bovine Productivity.

A dairy department official said to implement the scheme the agriculture ministry has already developed a unique ID technology. The technology is cheap and comes with a tamper-proof polyurethane tag which will have the biological details about the cow such as breed, age, sex, height and special body marks.

The cost of each card will be Rs. 8-10. The Pashu Sanjivni programme is a larger project in the sectors like dairy and fisheries.

The reason behind the project:

The main aim of launching this project is to help the farmers by increasing the production of cattle’s milk and to prevent cattle trafficking.  Setting 2022 as a benchmark to increase farmers’ income. Economists saying that it is not possible for the farmers to achieve the sufficient income because they work on small parcels of land.

In the Union Budget for 2018- 2019 finance minister Arun Jaitley has annunced that many funds released s to develop infrastructure for animal husbandry, fisheries and aquaculture, apart from an artificial insemination drive to improve cattle breeds, to “upgrade” the nation’s cattle population.

About Rs10,000 crore fund for  Fisheries and Aquaculture Infrastructure Development and an Animal Husbandry Infrastructure Development. About Rs200 crore for an artificial insemination drive to improve cattle breeds.
