‘Odd-even formula’ for cars triggers ire

‘Odd-even formula’ for cars triggers ire

By DIBYENDU MONDAL | NEW DELHI | 6 December, 2015

The executive order of the Delhi government proposing an “odd/even formula” for cars to be implemented from 1 January 2016, has drawn mixed reactions from citizens here. Some feel the order would bring much-needed respite to those suffering from health conditions, while others see the order as being forced upon them, without having a proper public transport system in place.
The government’s decision has been lauded by environmentalists like M.C Mehta who said: “Delhi has been ranked as one of the most polluted cities in the world. People, especially senior citizens, children and patients in various hospitals, are gasping for breath and have been severely affected. If drastic measures are not taken by the Delhi government to curb the rising air pollution in the capital, Delhi will choke soon.”
However, Delhi lacks a proper public transport system that can support the demands of a large section of people who would be forced to leave their cars behind on every alternate day. A JNU student who travels from Dwarka daily said: “There is inadequate public transport system, and if I am forced to give up my car, I will be left with no option but to miss classes. Delhi lacks last mile connectivity and with the Metro still developing, such a decision would only cause chaos and confusion among commuters.”  Anurag Kulshrestha, president of TRAX, a road safety organisation, said that the government has taken a unilateral decision, adding the government seems to have taken this decision in a hurry under pressure of the National Green Tribunal and the Delhi High Court. “The intention of the government may be good, but with the current system in place, it seems impractical,” Kulshrestha said. Even senior traffic police officials expressed their disappointment at not being consulted and said it would be a difficult task to implement an order like this as they are already understaffed and overworked, and lack adequate modern equipment like cameras to capture number plates, etc.
In an emergency meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Cabinet took a decision to implement an “odd/even formula” for cars plying on Delhi’s roads. The order will come into effect from 1 January 2016. It  means that cars having odd number plates would be allowed on one day and those with even numbers would be allowed to ply on the alternate day.

This is something I stnlrgoy disagree with. Free market aims at optimal profit from use of resources, which need not coincide with optimal use. This statement clearly indicates that you haven't grasped what the term free market means. Let me put it in as simple a form as possible. Only a free market is capable of having a functioning price mechanism. In the absence of pricing mechanism, optimal allocation is impossible. A free market pricing mechanism forces optimal use on users because if they do not use resources optimally, they lose. Outside of a free-market, you cannot have a sustainable, functioning pricing mechanism. Hence, you cannot have optimal use.Also note that the word optimal is a slimy word as it hides the connotations for whom? and on what grounds? . You could have a technical optimum , an economic optimum , a local optimum , a global optimum , etc. The only thing I consider valid is that which is optimal for utility maximisation of the acting men who constitute the market. Anything else is imposing your personal wishes and whims on others. I gain more profit from selling breakable chairs than unbreakable ones, This is completely incorrect. You are treating the buyers as bumbling fools who can be taken for a ride any time. You gain more profit by satisfying your customers' needs better. If your customers think your chairs are not good because they are breakable, they will go elsewhere leaving you with your chairs, your costs and no revenues. I’d rather discard toxic materials than recycle them, This statement once again shows that you haven't grasped how a free market or a system based on private property will work. Let me pose a question to show it. Where, i.e., on whose property will you discard the toxic materials? Even if you try to get away by saying on the commons , what will other property owners do when their person/property is polluted by the toxic materials you have dumped? How will a system of private property or a free market handle this? If your toxic materials enter my property, you are liable to pay me damages. You need to understand this simple point. On a free-market, disposal of toxic waste will therefore become a profitable business where the disposing agency will have to do its job without violating the property rights of others. A well if contaminated, is a loss to the entire village. Once again, whose well? You are alluding to the tragedy of the commons and the only solution to that is private property and the free market. A nation is in no way different from the collection of individuals, however an individual need not act in a way that benefits the collective. The collection has no more rights than each individual has and hence is a completely superfluous concept on a free market. It is the property rights of the individuals that constitute the mythical concept nation that will limit the actions of the acting individual. You are failing to realise this. The utility of a bed is to sleep on it, which requires it to be clean. So YOU say. Just realise that this is the utility YOU see in it. I may not require a clean bed to sleep on. I may be happy to sleep in the midst of the clutter or leave the clutter on the bed and sleep on the floor.

on the cross according to each Gospel. Reconciling the <a href="http://opofzf.com">vaouris</a> versions is not an easy task and while viewers may question some of the specific choices, the only really significant alteration is the death of Judas by throwing himself into the sacrificial pit of the Great Temple, a symbolism that is unnecessarily heavy handed.The choice of Max Von Sydow to play Jesus is an interesting selection to say the least. His slight Swedish accent and closely cropped beard are certainly in keeping with the reverential tone of the film, but I can not help wondering if this was something of a reaction to the more populist Jesus portrayed by Jeffrey Hunter in King of Kings. After all, this was 1965 and the Beatles invasion was underway making male hair length a hot issue. This is a Jesus who is too solemn and too sedate for the most part. There is a nice moment where one of the new disciples comments that he likes Jesus name. The smile and Thank you that follow are one of the few glimpses of the charisma of the man from Galilee.

Perception is everything. It doesn't maettr whether or not race factored into the decision. What maettrs is that it was obvious that the issue would come up when Embree was fired after only two years on the job. Just as it will be hard to lure a talented coach to a school that gives a coach only two years to turn a down program aaround, it will be hard to tell black atheletes that Boulder is the place for them. So it is't McCartney or his supporters who come off looking like idiots in this discussion but those of you who choose to bury your heads in the sand and fail to see how and why a situation like this comes about. http://idwhdmdrpfc.com [url=http://illayrh.com]illayrh[/url] [link=http://bonoano.com]bonoano[/link]
