Is true democracy exist around the world?

Donald Trump has signed an executive order that prevents hiring of foreign workers on H-1B visas.

Donald Trump has signed an executive order that prevents American federal agencies from contracting or hiring foreign workers, especially those who are on H-1B visas.

As expected, US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order that prevents American federal agencies from contracting or hiring foreign workers, especially those who are on H-1B visas. A few weeks back in June Trump had suspended the issuance of temporary work visas, including the H-1B visa till the end of this year. Now, his administration has brought in a new executive order that prevents American federal agencies from hiring foreign workers, especially those who are in the United States on H-1B visas. The President has stated that this decision has been taken in the interest of protecting American jobs, which, according to him is being snatched away by cheap foreign labor, and this is in line with his America first policy.
 Donald Trump has justified that these decisions are necessary to protect American jobs as the unemployment rate has risen exponentially. Due to the stagnation of the American economy, which has been further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 Impact of this conservative immigration policy of the Trump administration on Indian economic interests in the United States.


 Since this decision of Donald Trump is a continuation of the series of attacks that the Trump administration has unleashed against skilled foreign workers earlier in April. The Trump administration decided to suspend the issuance of green cards, which grant permanent residency, or the PR status to immigrants. Then in June. The US government suspended the issuance of all temporary work visas, including the H-1B visa till the end of the year. And now, the President has signed an executive order that prevents federal agencies from hiring foreign workers who are on H-1B visas. 

These decisions are a part of the conservative immigration policy that the Trump administration has adopted in an election year. And it is bound to significantly affect Indian interests in the United States, especially Indian economic interests, these curves which are being imposed on work with us is bound to affect the Indian industry, which has significant stakes and investments in the US economy. It's also going to affect the Indian students and Indian professionals who rely upon such temporary visas to work in the United States by offering their high-quality skill sets. This is also going to bring pressure on the government of India, which is bound to protect the interests of the Indian industry.  And this is likely to affect India's bilateral relationship with the United States, particularly the economic domain.
The American tech industry and the Indian IT and ITs industry are heavily dependent on the H-1B visas. This is a temporary work visa. That allows the tech companies to bring in highly skilled foreign workers into the United States, and Indian professionals happen to be the largest beneficiaries of this visa program, because every year, nearly 60 to 70% of the H-1B visas are granted by the US are allocated for Indians. 
The American tech industry and the Indian IT industry has relied upon the H-1B visa route to bring it cheap and skilled labor. This has directly contributed to phenomenal growth in the American and Indian IT industry. The Indian IT industry, which contributes significantly to the American economy, feels that it has been unfairly targeted by the Trump administration and also feels that accusations of stealing American jobs equate Indian professionals with illegal migrants and low skilled workers who sneak into the United States.

 The Indian industry has again argued that it brings in highly skilled workers to the legal route, which contributes significantly to the American industry and the American economy. The Indian IT industry is not just a stealer of American jobs through outsourcing, but it also creates thousands of jobs in the United States for Americans through its massive investments in the American IT sector. Today, almost every Indian ITs major has a strong presence in the United States, and through their investments and their offices in the US, they have created numerous jobs for the Americans as well.
 These attacks of the Trump administration against skilled foreign workers are not really in the interest of protecting American jobs, but it is more focused upon protecting the core support base of the Donald Trump in the run-up to the 2020 presidential elections in the US. This conservative immigration policy of Donald Trump is driven by his desire to protect his core vote back, which comprises blue-collar workers, primarily for middle and lower-middle-class families. The conservative population, predominantly from the rural areas, whose livelihoods have been severely hit as a result of the downturn in the American economy and the exponential rise in unemployment. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
 Such divisive topics also offer Trump and his administration to cover up the mishandling of the COVID-19 pandemic by his administration.  The strength and the resilience of the American democracy and the American capitalist economy are drawn from the diversity of its population, its form faith in liberal politics, and its openness and tolerance towards people of all faiths, color, and nationality. This was the modern American that millions of people around the world, aspire to achieve.
But over the last four years, Donald Trump has driven the American Society towards hate and polarization through his divisive politics and his repeated attacks on religious minorities, racial minorities, and foreign migrant workers. His policies and speeches, which are usually divisive or the lines of religion, race, and nationality, has emerged as a great challenge for every country that has a strong bilateral relationship with the United States. Even close allies of the United States, such as European countries, and even close strategic partners such as India have been at the receiving end of the impact of Trump's divisive politics that has gained momentum in the election year. So now, the challenge for the Indian government would be to protect the interests of the Indian IT industry professionals and students without affecting its close strategic relationship with the US government.

How lockdown having a disproportionate impact on women

A disaster or catastrophic ends to have a disproportionate impact on women. According to the writer, this is because of the traditional gender-based role of women in society. For example, during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, it was observed that the disaster had a disproportionate impact on women, mainly because of their gender-defined roles. Since women are generally seen as the traditional caregiver in the family, they lacked the required life-saving skills, and as a result, a relatively higher number of deaths count was registered amongst women during the tsunami. Then after the disaster, women who were rendered homeless were accommodated in relief camps. And it was observed that at these relief camps, women had to face abuse and molestation, and they even had to face hygiene and sanitation issues at these relief camps. similar challenges have been faced by women in the United States as well, which is frequently hit by tornadoes. similar challenges were noted during the 2018 19 f…

Are humans responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic

Humans responsible for the pandemic According to the UNDP. The spread of a zoonotic disease such as COVID-19 can be directly attributed to the overexploitation of biodiversity and ecosystems by human beings. The UNDP has said that several zoonotic diseases have affected human beings because of increased contact of humans with animals. Especially wild animals. So these diseases with a jump from animals to human beings are referred to as zoonotic diseases or zoonosis. And it is a direct outcome of the overexploitation of biodiversity and ecosystems through human activities. The UNDP report even says that it is not just COVID-19 but even tuberculosis, rabies, malaria, toxoplasmosis h1 none SARS, burst, Ebola Zika, etc. They are all examples of zoonosis that have jumped from animals to human beings. And in each case, the source can be attributed to the destruction of the environment and biodiversity through human activities
It is found that the coronavirus outbreak certainly comes from t…

Researchers found new symptoms of COVID19

Many COVID-19 cases have emerged from Europe and the United States, where many patients have reported a complete inability to smell or even to taste. So, this has given rise to questions, whether the SARS coronavirus is affecting our neurons that are responsible for smell and taste, or is it affecting other cells, which are involved in this olfactory function. A recent study conducted in India has shown that it is not the neurons that are being affected by the virus, but instead, it is a set of cells present in the upper regions of our nasal cavity that are being affected by the double Coronavirus. These cells include the sub Technicolor cells and the horizontal basal cells. But importantly, these cells are not directly involved in helping us smell. It means that these cells are not directly involved in the olfactory function. But these cells help us nourish and support the other cells, which are actually involved in the olfactory function. So this means that the novel Coronavirus is…
