first_imgDanish shipping and energy conglomerate Maersk Group has set sights on achieving internal synergies of USD 600 million by the end of 2019, the company revealed on the occasion of its Capital Markets Day.Maersk reaped USD 100 million from synergies achieved in 2017 driven by, inter alia, 11 percent volume growth from Maersk Line in APM Terminals.The objective is being made as the group transforms from a conglomerate to an integrated logistics company focused on container shipping, ports and logistics.One of the key priorities to continue driving the synergies would be further bolstering of volume from Maersk Line and Hamburg Süd in APM Terminals, especially as Hamburg Süd moves its volume from third-party terminals to APMT.The German liner’s integration into the group is anticipated to contribute to synergies worth up to USD 400 million by 2019, according to Maersk.In 2017, Maersk Line’s volume increase in APM Terminals stood at 33.7 percent.Aside from winning more volume and Capex discipline, Maersk has also decided to raise cash from its underperforming terminals.These will, in particular, relate to the selling of minority shares in high-value terminals which provide an opportunity for the company to optimize its portfolio of 74 terminals worldwide.Furthermore, there will be no new greenfield terminal project investments as considerable financing is required to complete the construction of the existing five terminals under implementation.These include projects in Moin in Costa Rica, Tema in Ghana, and TM2 in Tangier which are set for opening in 2019 as well as Vedo in Italy and Abidjan in Ivory Coast which are to set to start operations in 2020.Future initiativesDespite the major impact of the cyber attack from last year, Maersk continues to believe in digitalization and benefits it will bring to its business. These include improved customer experience, cost and productivity gains as well as data monetization. Nevertheless, considerable investments are being assigned to cyber security.To that end, Maersk has teamed up with IBM to establish a joint venture aimed at offering a global trade digitization platform by using blockchain technology.Moving forward the group wants to retain its investment grade status as it moves to complete separation of its energy business, the proceeds of which are set to be distributed to shareholders.Finally, as of the first quarter of 2018, Maersk plans to report one profit and loss statement and EBITDA guidance as its energy business is reclassified.Hence, the disclosure from the Q1 2018 will include the following segments:Ocean: Maersk Line ocean revenue, Hamburg Süd ocean revenue, APMT transshipment hubsTerminals and Tugs: APMT, SvitzerLogistics and Services: Damco, trade finance, inland haulage and other logistics servicesManufacturing and others: Maersk Container Industry, othersIn its guidance for 2018, Maersk expects its EBITDA to range between USD 4-5 bn and its underlying result to be above last year standing at USD 365 million.World Maritime News Staff; Image Courtesy: Maersklast_img read more

first_imgMarch is Fraud Prevention Month and the Nova Scotia Securities Commission is reminding investors to do their due diligence when investing, especially in cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings. Recently attention was given to the rise and fall in the value of Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings grabbing the moniker as the next big thing in investing. There are legitimate investments in cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings, but their sudden rise in popularity has also made them a breeding ground for scam artists and fraudsters. “Whenever a new investment gains media exposure you can be sure fraudsters and scam artists are not far behind,” said Heidi Schedler, senior enforcement counsel with the commission. “We have seen this with cryptocurrencies, initial coin offerings, Bitcoin as well as binary options, gold options and Forex. Investors should exercise extreme caution with these fad type of offers.” Despite their rise in popularity and increased coverage in the media, people’s knowledge around cryptocurrencies and initial coin offerings remain low. Fraudsters typically target people with this lack of knowledge, using it against them to push illegitimate or fraudulent investments. “The popularity and tremendously volatile valuation of Bitcoin also helps scam artists,” said Ms. Schedler. “People see these huge valuations of Bitcoin on the news in the thousands of dollars and fear that they might be missing out on an investment opportunity. Scam artists are ready and willing to take advantage of that fear with schemes that can cause an investor to lose a lot of money.” To help investors avoid investment frauds and schemes the commission has developed a new Investment Fraud Protection Checklist. This checklist includes information an investor should check before purchasing any investment. This checklist is available on the commission’s website,, and is part of the Fraud Prevention Month campaign that also includes a look at famous fraudsters and how the swindled their victims, blog posts on market misconduct, and a social media series of fraud tips. “Our website is a great source for investors looking for information on identifying and avoiding investment fraud, as well as novice investors looking for basic information on investments and the markets,” says David Harrison, investor education and communications officer with the commission. “We recommend any investor in Nova Scotia to visit our website to learn more, and we also encourage them to reach out to us with any questions they might have.” The Nova Scotia Securities Commission is the provincial government agency responsible for regulating the investment industry in the province.last_img read more

“There is a sense that Israel and the United Nations have rediscovered each other,” Mr. Annan said as he wrapped up his trip in Israel last night at a dinner hosted by Israeli President Moshe Katsav.The inauguration earlier Tuesday of the Museum at the Yad Vashem memorial in Jerusalem had been well-timed, coming at a time of renewed hope for peace in the Middle East and as Israel and the UN continue to build a new relationship, the Secretary-General added.Throughout his four days in the region Mr. Annan said his talks with the leaders, including Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, had left him “very encouraged.””I do not want to give the impression that it is going to be easy. There are hurdles along the road. But I think with a clear determination and good will on both sides, a lot can be done,” he said after one meeting.He noted recent developments, including last month’s agreement at a summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, between Mr. Sharon and Mr. Abbas whereby all Palestinians will stop all acts of violence against all Israelis everywhere and Israel will cease all its military activities against all Palestinians everywhere.He emphasized the importance of the Road Map peace plan drafted by the diplomatic Quartet – UN, European Union, Russia and United States – calling on both Israel and the Palestinians to take parallel and reciprocal steps leading to two states living side by side in peace, originally by the end of 2005. read more

The Ohio State men’s basketball team defeated Nebraska in Lincoln Saturday night, 63-56, to keep a pair of streaks alive. With the win, the No. 11-ranked Buckeyes extended their winning streak to four games. In the process, OSU advanced to 17-4 on the season and 7-2 in Big Ten play. The Buckeyes also remain perfect against their newest conference foe. Since the Huskers joined the Big Ten in 2011, OSU is 4-0 against Nebraska. Nebraska proved to be a much tougher opponent than it was in the teams’ first meeting, in which OSU dispatched the Huskers, 70-44, at the Schottenstein Center. This time around, Nebraska gave the Buckeyes all they could handle for a good portion of the first half, and it even led a couple of times. In the closing minutes of the half, however, OSU mounted a 15-4 run, which seemed to drain some energy out of the home crowd and the Huskers, while giving OSU all the momentum. The Buckeyes carried that momentum into the second half, and expanded their lead to as much as 15 points. But the resilient Huskers would not go away. Nebraska slowly chipped away at OSU’s lead, in large part because of senior center and defensive anchor Andre Almeida. The 6-foot-11, 314-pound Almeida made it difficult for OSU to find easy looks in the paint, and as the Buckeyes struggled to find scores, Nebraska cut the margin to five points with just over a minute left to play. The Huskers couldn’t knock down a few open shots in the closing minute, however, and OSU put the game away from the free throw line. Nebraska falls to 11-12 on the season and to 2-8 in Big Ten play. The Buckeyes received sporadic production from junior forward Deshaun Thomas, who scored 15 points but struggled while doing so. The Big Ten’s leading scorer connected on just 6-of-18 shots, as he was constantly doubled-teamed and harassed by Husker defenders. While Thomas was fairly inefficient with his scoring, Lenzelle Smith Jr. was anything but. The junior guard made all six of his field goal attempts for a game-high and season-high 21 points. After struggling to put away one of the Big Ten’s bottom feeders, the Buckeyes will now move into what could be their toughest week of the season. The Buckeyes will embark upon a pair of contests, against No. 1 Michigan on Feb. 5 and No. 3 Indiana on Feb. 10. This article has been revised to reflect the following correction: Correction: February 3, 2013 An earlier version of this story misspelled Andre Almeida’s name in the seventh paragraph. read more

Ohio State junior guard Kelsey Mitchell weaves through defenders during the team’s game against South Carolina on Nov. 14. OSU lost 92-80. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorThe Ohio State’s women’s basketball team’s schedule continued to increase in strength when the Big Ten announced Wednesday the Buckeyes would play Duke in Durham, North Carolina, on Nov. 30 in an ACC/Big Ten Challenge matchup. This is the third announced game on Ohio State’s 2017-18 schedule. The Buckeyes will be hosting Stanford on Nov. 10 and Connecticut on Nov. 12 as part of the “Countdown to Columbus” event which marks the start of the women’s college basketball season.The Buckeyes and Blue Devils have faced off only one prior time when Duke took down Ohio State, 83-67, in 2009.Last season, the Blue Devils, a perennial power who have made the NCAA tournament in 22 of the past 23 seasons, finished 28-6 and were knocked out of the tournament in the second round.Ohio State has historically struggled in ACC/Big Ten Challenge games, holding a 2-8 record in such matchups. As part of last season’s Big Ten/ACC Challenge, Ohio State fell to Miami, 94-89, in overtime and Duke defeated Rutgers, 68-32.This game will have extra meaning for redshirt junior guard Sierra Calhoun, who transferred from Duke after the 2014-15 season. read more

first_imgPowerscreen, the supplier of mobile crushing and screening equipment to the mining industry, will be exhibiting on the Terex stand at the 2014 CONEXPO-CON/AGG exhibition at the Las Vegas Convention Centre from March 4-8, 2014. The company will be exhibiting three new machines – the Powerscreen Premiertrak 300 jaw crusher, the Powerscreen Trakpactor 320SR impact crusher; and the Powerscreen Warrior 2100 screen. Commenting on the forthcoming line up at Conexpo, Damian Power, Powerscreen Global Product Line Director, said: “Conexpo is the perfect time to launch these exciting new Powerscreen machines to the global market. We look forward to meeting with customers and discussing the features and benefits of our extensive product portfolio.” All of the machines on display will showcase a rugged new look from Powerscreen which maintains the  traditional Powerscreen green colour while adopting a dark grey colour on the chassis and conveyors. The company says the new paint scheme provides “an updated, modern look to the machines.”The Premiertrak 300 jaw crusher features a new hydrostatic drive system option allowing it to reverse and unblock or run continuously in reverse. It is designed to run at low engine RPM resulting in excellent fuel efficiency and low noise emissions. The Premiertrak 300 crusher features a Vibrating Grizzly Feeder (VGF) set with 50 mm bofor bar on the top deck and 30 mm mesh on the bottom. The closed side setting (CSS) can be set to 40 mm. Other benefits of the machine include large clearances in the bypass chute to improve material flow and reduce the chance of  blockages in sticky material; a large under crusher clearance and full tunnelling to reduce the chance of blockage due to re-bar build up; and a hydraulically lowering conveyor that offers excellent access to reduce downtime should a blockage occur. Rapid set-up times are possible with all folding done hydraulically and no need to work at height so the machine can be moved quickly. Control is via an easy to use PLC screen control system. Jaw speed and CSS can be changed by a single button which allows the machine to be adjusted to suit the application quickly with no tools required.The Trakpactor 320SR is a mid-sized horizontal impact crusher redesigned with some key enhancements to offer operators and contractors “excellent reduction and high consistency of product shape” for performance in quarrying applications. The plant is capable of working in the most demanding environments and features rapid set-up time, fuel efficient direct drive system and excellent output potential of up to 320 t/h. The plant features a recirculating conveyor which raises for transport allowing more ground clearance under the machine when moving on site and loading for transport. A new feature of the Trakpactor 320SR crusher is a quick-detach post-screen section which converts it to a standard Trakpactor 320 unit. This provides operators with the ability to use the machine in a variety of different applications.The Warrior 2100 screen is engineered to include proven Triple Shaft technology first developed for the successful Warrior 2400, a model which is now well established in markets worldwide. This Triple Shaft technology, unique to Powerscreen heavy duty mobile screens, is designed so the 16 ft x 5 ft screen box is highly effective and efficient while maintaining exceptional throughput productivity. Powerscreen states: “The extreme screening acceleration offers the Warrior 2100 screen improved capabilities over its class rivals, especially in sticky scalping applications.” The machine  can be configured with a combined top deck of 60 mm fingers with 60 mm punch plate and a bottom deck of 40 mm mesh.last_img read more

And in 2002, during the Japan & South Korea World Cup, I got settled in my room with Sylvain (Wiltord),” he told RMC Sport.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“I am in my room all alone at this point, and I hear a knock on the door. It is Zizou (Zidane) and I am like ‘oh no, what have I done, I am 20, I have only just arrived, why me.’ He says sit down I need to speak with you.“Zizou says that at Real Madrid we are interested in you, that we want you to come and play for us. I look at him, I say honestly, I don’t know how to say no to you, but I have already signed a pre-contract… and even in training (at Real Madrid) I wouldn’t be good enough to be in the squad, look who was playing then.“I thought it was impossible if I joined Real Madrid, it would stop my progress. Van Nistelrooy was still there. I didn’t think it was the right club for me. I signed for Liverpool. People speculated a lot and said I could have joined a better club.”Cisse managed 24 goals in 79 games for Liverpool and scored a spot-kick in a penalty shoot-out from the club’s famous comeback win against AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final.Cisse now plays for Italian Serie D side Vicenza.last_img read more

For us, to stay in the Premier League is a success,” he continued.“We need to keep working the way we have done.

first_imgGas prices in downtown Nome. April 13, 2015.Anywhere else in the United States, $5.47 per gallon for gasoline might be pretty frightening—but in Nome, it’s a sale for spring subsistence.Download AudioEarlier this week, Bonanza Fuel dropped their gas prices by $0.25 per gallon. CEO Scot Henderson says that while they’ve been locked in to the higher cost of fuel purchased last fall, they wanted to make it easier for Nome residents to get out in the country for subsistence. Bonanza is owned by Sitnasuak Native Corporation, and Henderson says hunting and fishing are important to shareholders and their customers.“We wanted to do everything we can to make fuel more affordable during this important time,” said Henderson. “So, instead of waiting another two or three months when the spring barge arrives to lower gas prices, we’ve decided to start lowering prices now when local residents are needing to buy more gas.”Henderson says this is the first time he can recall that Bonanza has specifically offered a spring subsistence sale.Like most Western Alaska communities, Nome only has three or four months in the summer when the port is open and fuel can be delivered. Distributors like Bonanza order about a year’s worth of fuel at a time, and the summer cost of gasoline typically remains the stable price through winter.Henderson says this has been beneficial in past winters when gas prices have spiked, but this year’s immense drop hasn’t transferred to Nome.The first summer barge delivery to Nome is two or three months out, but Henderson says things should be looking up—or, more literally, down.“It is a bit early for me to speculate on how much of a decrease we will be seeing, but we do expect that there will be a relatively significant decrease in price from when they were set last fall,” said Henderson. Gas was $6.10 per gallon after the bulk purchases, with retail prices fluctuating throughout the year to remain competitive.Over the last several years, Bonanza has purchased fuel primarily from Asia or refineries in the Pacific Northwest. Sitnasuak has not yet set a date for when the sale will end, but Henderson says it will be communicated well in advance.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Ariel Schalit, File) center_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – It’s the season for Beatles in New York City.Within a week of Paul McCartney playing a surprise show at Grand Central Station, Ringo Starr followed a more old-fashioned path Thursday night. The drummer and singer headlined a two-hour show at Radio City Music Hall, with thousands spending much of the performance standing and cheering along.“We love you, Ringo!” one fan called out, and Starr shouted greetings in kind.It was not a time for lamenting the state of the world. The beloved ex-Beatle wore black, but bright stars hung above the stage and peace signs beamed from behind. Starr’s message for years has been peace and love and a happy look back, whether through such Beatles and solo favourites as “Yellow Submarine” and “Photograph” or through the songs of his current set of sidemen.Since the 1980s, he has toured and served as master of ceremonies with a rotating cast of rock stars of a certain age, what he calls his “All Starr Band.” On Thursday, he shared a generous amount of stage time with Colin Hay of Men At Work, Gregg Rolie of Santana, Steve Lukather of Toto and Graham Gouldman of 10cc.Audience members spanned three generations. They may have come to be in the presence of a Beatle, but they also shared flashbacks of early MTV with such hits as Men At Work’s “Down Under” and Toto’s “Africa” and cheered on the old Santana jams “Black Magic Woman” and “Oye Como Va.”At 78, Starr seems the least burned out of performers and the least changed from his prime, moving about the stage with the lightness of a man decades younger, his baritone showing no effects from his years of smoking.After joking early on about his struggles to write, he performed his self-composed “Anthem” — for “peace and love” as the song goes. But the show builds up to his real signature song, and long-running tribute to his place in the world: Lennon-McCartney’s “With a Little Help from My Friends.” He didn’t need to introduce it, and hardly needed to sing it. He held out the microphone to the crowd and everyone seemed to join in.last_img read more

fundamental right and it cannot be set aside on the ground of judicial morality" In fact Muslim women’s arguments such as this reflect the line of thinking promulgated by the male-chauvinist clergy of the AIMPLB The fundamental argument propounded by the AIMPLB is that “international convention and practices of other countries are of no avail as the practice of triple talaq is protected by Article 25” Interestingly now the women wing of AIMPLB is also buttressing the point that instant triple talaq does not always go against women "Many a time it is an exit mechanism to relieve women from unsuccessful and troublesome marriages" says Dr Asma Zehra chief organiser of the women’s wing of AIMPLB Ironically Muslims lament that the clergy has created vile customs like triple talaq nikah halala and nikah mut’ah (temporary marriage) in the Sunni and Shia communities But at the same time most of them are not willing to challenge the maulvis’ monopoly over these crucial matters of daily social life Most Muslims in India — both Sunnis and Shias — continue to look up to the maulvis as guardians and custodians of their religion Since the gullible Muslim masses adhere to the clerics’ views on religious and social matters the ulema and muftis (experts on Islamic jurisprudence) would do well to rigorously research rethink and critically review the entire issue They must take cues from the well-reformed Muslim divorce laws of Islamic nations This will help them prepare and re-interpret a well-thought-out Muslim divorce law which could be in synergy with both the Quran and the Constitution Keeping this broader objective in view AIMPLB should plan genuine research to delve deeper into the subject matter rather than organise large conferences and campaigns with hollow titles

have developed a new ten times cheaper ultra-sensitive sensor test to detect the early stages of several cancers and virusesincluding HIVwith the naked eye Researchers from the Imperial College London claim that their visual sensor technology is ten times more sensitive than the current gold standard methods for measuring biomarkers These indicate the onset of diseases such as prostate cancer and infection by viruses including HIV The colour of a liquid changes to give either a positive or negative result Researchers say their sensor would benefit countries where sophisticated detection equipment is scarceenabling cheaper and simpler detection and treatments for patients The team tested the effectiveness of the sensor by detecting a biomarker called p24 in blood sampleswhich indicates HIV infection “Unfortunatelythe existing gold standard detection methods can be too expensive to be implemented in parts of the world where resources are scarce” Professor Molly Stevensfrom the Departments of Materials and Bioengineeringsaid “Our approach affords for improved sensitivitydoes not require sophisticated instrumentation and it is ten times cheaperwhich could allow more tests to be performed for better screening of many diseases” said Stevens Researchers also tested samples for the biomarker called Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)which is an early indicator for Prostate Cancer The team say the sensor can also be reconfigured for other viruses and diseases where the specific biomarker is known The sensor works by analysing serumderived from bloodin a disposable container If the result is positive for p24 or PSAthere is a reaction that generates irregular clumps of nanoparticleswhich give off a distinctive blue hue in a solution inside the container If the results are negative the nanoparticles separate into ball-like shapescreating a reddish hue Both reactions can be easily seen by the naked eye The team also said that the sensor was so sensitive that it was able to detect minute levels of p24 in samples where patients had low viral loadswhich could not be diagnosed using existing tests such as the Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) test and the gold standard nucleic acid based test “We have developed a test that we hope will enable previously undetectable HIV infections and indicators of cancer to be picked upwhich would mean people

Pvt Ltd More Related NewsOn Monday the Madras High Court will give its verdict on a petition challenging the appointment of Dr P Balaji as member secretary of the Transplant Authority of Tamil Nadu (TRANSTAN) a key government body to regulate and monitor organ transplant and cadaver harvesting The petition filed by the Change India NGO alleged that the appointment was a case of quid pro quo and Balaji became a beneficiary for having attested former chief minister Jayalalithaa’s thumb impression on Form B that was submitted to the Election Commission in October 2016 ahead of by-elections to Thanjavur Aravakurichi and Thiruparankundram constituencies which were to be held on 19 November Balaji then a professor of minimal access surgery at Madras Medical College certified on the document on 27 October writing about Jayalalithaa "Since the signatory has undergone tracheostomy recently and has an inflamed right hand she is temporarily unable to affix her signature Hence she has affixed her left thumb impression on her own in my presence" File image of VK Sasikala PTI Four days later Balaji bagged the top job at TRANSTAN and the appointment was regularised on 5 May this year This particular case has acquired greater significance because TRANSTAN is the nodal body that takes care of organ transplants in Tamil Nadu And the latest recipient of a kidney and liver transplant is M Natarajan the 74-year-old husband of VK Sasikala the ousted general secretary of the AIADMK From 22 September to 5 December when Jayalalithaa was hospitalised Sasikala was the most powerful person in the AIADMK That her detractors are connecting the dots today seems a natural consequence And while fingers aren’t being directly pointed at Balaji in Natarajan’s case the manner in which organs were hastily organised for Sasikala’s husband has left many questions unanswered Natarajan admitted to Gleneagles Global Hospital in Chennai for critical liver and kidney failure had been in dire need of the two organs He was on the waiting list with the Tamil Nadu organ sharing for donor liver transplantation since April This last week a 19-year-old daily wage labourer N Kartik said to be in a critical state following a head injury was driven from Thanjavur’s Government Medical College Hospital to Trichy and then airlifted to Global hospital in Chennai on Monday night He was declared brain dead on Tuesday morning His liver and kidney were donated to Natarajan who underwent surgery the same day The petitioner in the case against Balaji A Narayanan has alleged that the manner in which organs were arranged for Natarajan makes it a case of criminal conspiracy He pointed out that this seems to have been motivated by the fact that the hospital where the patient is declared brain dead gets first right to harvest his organs depending on the family’s willingness "The patient was possibly brain dead in Thanjavur but he was allowed to be airlifted by saying he is critical only to ensure the Chennai hospital got the home hospital status Or maybe the doctors in Thanjavur didn’t make an effort to save him and instead allowed him to fly out" Narayanan said He also pointed out that Kartik’s family isn’t very affluent and it’s unlikely that they would afford an air ambulance that costs upwards of Rs 1 lakh per hour The law states that there should be no monetary consideration in the case of organ donations So does this mean the travel formalities were taken care of by other more affluent parties A press release put out by the Global Hospitals states that the family decided to move Kartik from Thanjavur to a private hospital for a "second opinion and specialised care against medical advice” Another doubt is whether the decision not to declare Kartik’s availability as a donor was because of a December 2015 TRANSTAN advisory that said "When potential donors are shifted to another hospital at the insistence of their families the hospital receiving the donor will not be entitled to any local organs The local organs of this donor will be allocated to the first hospital where possible brain stem death identification was done" This would have again meant the Thanjavur hospital But by declaring him brain dead only in Chennai Global Hospitals got first right to "in-house organ donation" With TRANSTAN guidelines dividing Tamil Nadu into three zones organs are first offered in the same zone that the donor is declared as brain dead Thanjavur falls in south zone while Chennai is in the north zone which meant it would not have received Kartik’s organs Does that explain the decision to shift Kartik to Chennai and rather coincidentally the same hospital that Natarajan was admitted to In their defence Tamil Nadu health ministry officials say it is ironic that the government was initially accused of deliberately denying Natarajan the organs he needed because of political reasons And now that it has been arranged to accuse the same government of bending the rules They say TRANSTAN is only a regulatory body that does not get into the nitty-gritties of how every organ was made available Balaji’s attestation has been under a cloud ever since Tamil Nadu minister C Sreenivasan clarified that no AIADMK leader had access to Jayalalithaa while she was in hospital If that is indeed so who took the decision about the three candidates and whether Balaji’s attestation was truthful will have to be examined Change India has also written to the Election Commission to check the integrity of the thumb impressions In fact since the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu is TRANSTAN president only Jayalalithaa could have appointed Balaji as a member secretary Given that she was not in a position where she could be consulted who took the call to appoint Dr Balaji
