Donald Trump has triggered a new controversy by that elections be postponed due to the COVID 19 pandemic

 
Donald Trump has triggered a new controversy by suggesting that November elections be postponed due to the COVID 19 pandemic
US President Donald Trump has triggered a new controversy by suggesting that November elections be postponed due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Now, the question is, does the President of the United States of America has the power to postpone the elections or if he does not have the power or who has the power to postpone the elections or check a particular date the election?

 According to the US Constitution of the United States of America, the president does not have any power to postpone the elections that power is given to the Congress of the United States of America.

 What is the Congress: it includes the House of Representatives and the house of the senate as well, in case they have to postpone the elections or they have to keep a particular date for
the conduct of the election. Congress has the power to decide it. So they have to pass a new law. According to the law require the approval of both House of Representatives and the Senate. And this is subject to legal challenges as well. Why legal challenges? That is because there was a federal law that was passed and approved back in the year 1845. According to it, there is given the mandate, it is unambiguous that the electors of the president and vice president shall be appointed in each state on Tuesday that means after the first Monday, in November of that year, where the elections are supposed to be conducted, which means the law clearly states that election of the electoral college will happen and elections will happen in November after the first Monday, and that happens to be Tuesday, and in this year, it is going to be November 3, so it has a clear cut an ambiguous law. Which is already present in its law. So how can they do it is one perspective?

 Now let's take a hypothetical situation. What if there is no law passed, or there is a situation where the elections are delayed in that particular proposition? Article 2 of the Constitution provides that a president is elected for about four years, so he would not be the president of the United States of America after four years. There is another 20th amendment that is present in the Constitution of the United States of America. It clearly says the terms of the President and the Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th of January. So even if it is postponed President  Donald Trump will not be the president of the United States of America after the 20th day of January, which means even if the elections are extended, if it is postponed, the President will not be the president after 20th of January.
 Now the question is ho take charge in office the office if there are no elections that are conducted.
 If there is no president, it means it will be the Vice President, but kindly remember the differential. I'm just giving you a comparison of United States of America president with India's president, let's suppose there is a president of the United States of America who passes away. There is a term fixed term of about four years for which he would be the president of the United States of America. He passes at the end of two and a half years now, the Vice President of the United States of America will become the president of the United States of America for the rest of the period. So another one adelphia, the Vice President will become the president of the United States of America, the same is not about India. What happens to India?
 Let's suppose there is a hypothetical situation that the President of India does pass away within about five years. There are another two and a half years that is left In this two and a half years, the vice president can become the president. But elections for the President will happen as soon as possible. So after the elections take place, the Vice President will get back as the vice president. So the new president is elected as the President of India. This is the key difference in the present scenario for the United States of America.

 If the term of the president is expired, what we will have is the vice president taking over since both of them retire on the same day, this as another hierarchy, where the speaker that is the House of Representatives speaker up will become the president in case the speaker's term is also ending. What we will have this President Pro tem of the Senate who can become the president kindly remember,
this President Pro Tem is usually a person who is elected member of the Senate by the Senate practice stretching way back to the 19th century, the most senior member of the majority party is selected As the President Pro Tem, but legally, they can also pick whomever they want. But according to historical facts, historical precedents, it has usually been the senior-most member of the majority party.
 But legally, they're also entitled to pick up anyone from the majority parties.
have there been any instances where elections have been postponed? The presidential election has not been delayed until now. In the United States of America, there have been previous issues like the Spanish flu, which happened in 1918, or the American Civil War, or world war two. In all these scenarios, the postponement of these elections has not taken place. So we are not sure if the presidential elections will also get postponed.

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…
