Theyre Breaking The Law And Using Marijuana But They Want To Help


first_img Share BILL ZEEBLE / KERA NEWSMark Zartler prepares a tiny amount of marijuana for a vapor treatment for his autistic daughter, Kara, who hits herself in the face. He says she stops hurting herself minutes after inhaling the vapor.In Texas, only a handful of people can legally use medical marijuana. So the vast majority who use it that way just keep quiet. One Richardson family with an autistic child has broken its silence.The Zartlers hope Senate Bill 269 will pass in the state Legislature; it would change the medical marijuana law, so they’d no longer have to break it.The KERA radio storyA cycle of self-harm Kara Zartler, 17, has cerebral palsy and is autistic. She just got home from school, and she’s in the kitchen with Mom, dad, her daily caregiver and the family’s dogs.Her mom talks with Kara. “Kara, can you look? He wants to take your picture. Can you keep looking? Over here,” says Christy Zartler, who’s a pediatric nurse practitioner.She says her daughter, who’s non-verbal, is having a good day.“Look,” Zartler says. “She smiled at you. That’s so positive.”It’s not always this way, says her father, Mark Zartler, a software engineer.“She has self-injurious behaviors,” he says. “These have been a constant in her life since she was 4. She will hit herself repeatedly in the face and gets into a cycle and just can’t stop. That just goes on and on.”Zartler’s behavior was captured in a home video and posted on Facebook and YouTube last month. Warning: Video might be difficult to watch for some viewers. The video shows Kara screaming as she’s strapped in a car seat. Then she’s in a living room rocking chair, rhythmically hitting herself with both fists on each side of her head.Doctors say it’s how she responds to pain, likely from cerebral palsy.It’s hard to know. It’s also hard to watch.In the video, Mark Zartler puts a mask to Kara’s face and squeezes cannabis vapor from a plastic bag he’s filled. About three minutes later, Kara is calmer. She still rocks and grunts. But the episode is over, her mom says.“It’s lessened. It doesn’t completely stop it,” Christy Zartler says. “But it slows her down. It slows her mind and her brain down to where she’s just more focused and aware.”  The Zartlers first took a chance on marijuana 10 years ago. They were going to the beach. For Kara, the car can be a screaming, biting nightmare. Then Mark Zartler remembered a neighbor who had given them a marijuana brownie for Kara, hoping it might help.  “In the car, there’s not really a way to get control of her arms because she’ll bite,” he explains. “She loves the beach but it’s hard to get to the beach. We were like, ‘well, why don’t we give her a little bit of brownie before we [have a] high-stress day, and we’ll see how it works out?’ And it worked out great.”  Cindy Roacha is Kara’s caregiver.“It’s like a miracle,” she says. “I noticed that her parents would try everything. And she always had the issue where she would always hit herself for hours and hours. But once they experimented with different types of medicines, we noticed that this was the most effective.”‘Being the water for the fire’It’s probably because of the THC in marijuana, Christian Bogner says. The Michigan doctor, who also has an autistic child, has researched cannabis for years. He says it helps reduce inflammation of the brain in some with autism.“I would think of it more like it being the water for the fire,” Bogner says. “Now, imagine the autistic patient to have a headache with hallucinations and horrible emotions. This is the result of a complete dysregulation of neurotransmitters [that happens in their brains]. And we know that cannabis can help regulate these neurotransmitter dysregulations.”Research backing Bogner has been limited. Because cannabis is an FDA Schedule I drug, like heroin or LSD, it’s hard to study, legally. By comparison, there’s more research on Schedule II drugs, such as cocaine, opium or fentanyl.Kara’s sister Keeley is an identical twin, but doesn’t have autism. CREDIT BILL ZEEBLE / KERA NEWSKara is neither the first nor only autistic patient who seems to benefit from cannabis. But she’s in Texas, where using it is illegal except for intractable epilepsy.The Zartlers hope sharing their story will change that. Mark Zartler knows he’s taking a risk, so he keeps a small amount for Kara — only enough for a misdemeanor.Approving medical marijuanaState Sen. José Menéndez, a San Antonio Democrat, wants to ease that pressure.“It’s time that Texas step up to the plate and allow many of our sickest patients to have access to the medicine that they want and that their doctors feel they would benefit from,” Menendez says.He says 28 other states and Washington D.C. have approved medical marijuana. That’s what his Senate Bill 269 would do. He’s tried this before. It’s a long shot.“Every once in a while, you get an opportunity to really help people and I do believe this would help people,” Menéndez says.A.J. Louderback isn’t so sure. He’s sheriff of Jackson County, midway between Galveston and Corpus Christi. He’s also the legislative director for the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas.“I understand that many people are willing to try anything for the relief of the children,” Louderback says. “We’re not unpassionate about that at all. But in every state that’s become a recreational marijuana state, the first part is always the medical marijuana.”Louderback asks: “Where’s the science?” There’s not enough to convince him. He worries sheriffs will be overwhelmed with recreational cannabis users claiming medical need.  His group opposed a much narrower bill that passed two years ago, and will fight SB 269, which hasn’t yet made it out of committee. Copyright 2017 KERA-FM.

Black Leaders Forged Alliance With Trump on Sentencing Deal


first_imgBy JESSE J. HOLLAND, Associated PressWASHINGTON (AP) — A rare bipartisan deal in Congress to overhaul federal sentencing laws passed after a few Black ministers, leaders and lawmakers forged an alliance with President Donald Trump, who some have condemned as racist for the last two years.The reforms could offer a path to freedom for hundreds of Black and Latino inmates who were sent to prison by a justice system that critics say has long been stacked against minorities.Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., left, joins Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, left, in an Instagram Live post before they participate in a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018, on prison reform legislation. A criminal justice bill passed in the Senate gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)“It’s like threading a needle politically,” said Marc Morial, the National Urban League’s president and CEO. “It’s been very delicate to get us to the point where we are right now.”Bishop Harry Jackson, pastor of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Maryland, still gets questions from fellow African-Americans asking him why he and other conservative Black ministers went to the White House over the summer to talk about the issue with Trump.“People are still mad at us about that,” Jackson said.But the end result could be worth it to address what Jackson called “the defining civil rights issue of this era,” even as detractors complain that the legislation did not go far enough and could invite new problems for minority communities.The bill, which is expected to go to Trump soon for his signature, gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and expands prisoner rehabilitation efforts. It also reduces the life sentence for some drug offenders with three convictions, or “three strikes,” to 25 years.Another provision would allow about 2,600 federal prisoners sentenced for crack cocaine offenses before August 2010 the opportunity to petition for a reduced penalty.That will be a win for minorities who were caught up in a sentencing system that made crack cocaine a more serious offense than other types of cocaine, said New Jersey Sen. CoryBooker, a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2020.“When you correct an injustice in a biased system, it dramatically helps the marginalized people,” Booker said. “That provision alone, 96 percent of the people who are helped by that, are Black or Latino.”Among the advocates of the legislation was a diverse and unlikely group that included presidential adviser Jared Kushner, Kim Kardashian West, the National Urban League, Black ministers and minority lawmakers and libertarian-leaning conservatives.Some of the bill’s advocates say it was a tough decision to work with a White House that is deeply unpopular with Black people. More than 8 in 10 African-Americans said they thought Trump was racist in a February poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.But even the supporters say they know this legislation is only the beginning, as reflected by its name, the First Step Act.Groups such as the NAACP cheered the passage of the bill but also harbored reservations.The legislation “offers some important improvements to the current federal criminal justice system, but it falls short of providing the meaningful change that is required to make the system genuinely fair,” said Hilary O. Shelton, director of the NAACP’s Washington bureau.The bill only affects the federal system, meaning anyone given harsh sentences at the state and local level will have no recourse. Those inmates make up the bulk of people behind bars across America.Blacks constitute 38 percent — or about 68,000 — of the more than 180,000 inmates in the federal prison population, according to the Bureau of Prisons. Hispanics make up 32 percent — or about 58,000 — of federal prison inmates, with about 122,000 non-Hispanics in federal prison.Some groups say the bill will open the door to increased surveillance of minority communities through electronic monitoring of released inmates. Others point out limitations in the bill on which federal prisoners will benefit from its changes.The Movement for Black Lives, a coalition of more than 150 Black-led organizations, called the legislation “custom-made for rich white men.”“All of the carve-outs make the vast majority of our people ineligible for the benefits of the bill,” the group said.Even with the limits, the bill’s advocates are thrilled to have made progress on an issue where reform has remained elusive for more than a decade. Jackson said any president willing to talk about even minor changes should be worked with.“I believe with all my heart, if Dr. Martin Luther King was alive, he would have been in that meeting,” Jackson said. “And he would have been advocating for the voiceless instead of playing politics and personality games.”___Jesse J.

Audi Unveils iPhonelike Car Phone


first_img Study: Tesla Autopilot misleading, overestimated more than similar technology This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further Citation: Audi Unveils iPhone-like Car Phone (2007, October 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2007-10-audi-unveils-iphone-like-car.html The Audi phone is part of the A1 Metroproject Quattro Concept, Audi´s latest urban car prototype. A hybrid, the A1 combines a 150 bhp 1.4-liter TFSI engine with power directed to the front wheels, and a 41 HP electric motor on the rear axle for extra torque. Operating only on electricity, the A1 can travel up to 62 miles, and can be recharged at a normal power outlet.One of the most innovative parts of the A1 concept is the phone, acting as a remote version of the in-car Audi MMI interface, which can slide into a slot on the dash. Equipped with both Wi-Fi and 3G UMTS technology, the phone features a combination key fob, remote starting, and even allows drivers to control the heating system remotely, warming up the car on cold winter mornings.And because everyone is going to want an Audi A1, the phone has anti-theft features, too. The phone teams up with an onboard camera, which snaps pictures when suspecting the entrance of an intruder, and then wirelessly sends the pictures to the phone. Then, acting like a LoJack, it switches on the car´s tracking device following the car´s location.The Audi phone can also function as an MP3 player and a navigation unit. The interface, a touch-sensitive screen with only four main softkeys (like an iPhone), can recognize Latin and Japanese characters, and can also decipher handwriting. Perhaps the biggest concern about such a high-tech device is getting used to safely using it—or not using it—while driving.via: Motor Authority and Jalopnik Audi has recently introduced a new concept car phone, cramming a ton of features into a tiny device. Called the Audi Mobile Phone, the handheld interface controls a number of systems on the car, while also serving as a phone, and video and audio player. The Audi Mobile Phone, part of the A1 Metroproject Quattro Concept, is a phone, MP3 player, navigation system, and also controls a multitude of features on the Audi A1.last_img read more

first_img March 2, 2012 — U-Systems announced the somo•v automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) system is scheduled for review by the Radiological Devices Panel of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on April 11, 2012. The FDA Advisory Panel review is the next step in the firm’s premarket approval (PMA) application seeking a breast cancer screening indication for the system. The somo•v ABUS system is currently FDA-cleared for diagnostic use as an adjunct to mammography.“We are very excited the somo•v ABUS system has been scheduled for review at the upcoming Radiological Devices Advisory Panel meeting,” said Ron Ho, president and CEO of U-Systems. “This is a significant milestone, not only for the company, but also for women with dense breast tissue. The limitation of mammography in women with dense breasts is well documented. This panel review, part of the FDA process for assessing new technology, brings us one step closer to an approved adjunctive screening tool for women with dense breasts. This is vitally important, because an estimated 40-45 percent of women in the United Stated have dense breast tissue.”Dense breast tissue not only increases the risk of breast cancer up to four to six times but also makes cancer more difficult to detect via mammography according to multiple large studies. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed 35 percent of breast cancer goes undetected by mammography in women with dense breasts, as the density masks appearance of tumors. The greater the breast density, the lower the mammogram accuracy.Over the past several years, U-Systems has worked with some of the nation’s leading breast imaging experts to conduct a large, multi-center prospective clinical study to evaluate the ability of somo•v automated breast ultrasound screening to improve cancer detection rates for women with dense breast tissue. The SOMO•INSIGHT clinical study, the largest trial ever undertaken by an ultrasound company, is designed to evaluate whether digital mammography in combination with the automated breast ultrasound system is more sensitive than a routine screening mammogram alone in detecting breast cancer in women with dense breast tissue. More than 16,000 women have enrolled in the study at multiple breast imaging centers nationwide.For more information: www.u-systems.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of Imago Systems Technology | Artificial Intelligence | July 18, 2019 Paragon Biosciences Launches Qlarity Imaging to Advance FDA-cleared AI Breast Cancer Diagnosis System Paragon Biosciences LLC announced the launch of its seventh portfolio company, Qlarity Imaging LLC, which was founded… read more Feature | Artificial Intelligence | July 19, 2019 | Michal Chorev AI Models Predict Breast Cancer With Radiologist-level Accuracy Breast cancer is the global leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the most commonly diagnosed cancer… read more News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

BOSTON – Bill Cosbys 44yearold daughter Ensa Co


first_img BOSTON – Bill Cosby’s 44-year-old daughter Ensa Cosby died in Massachusetts from kidney disease, a spokesman for the comedian said Monday.Spokesman Andrew Wyatt did not immediately offer other details about her death on Friday.“Please keep the Cosby family in your prayers and give them peace at this time,” he said.Bill Cosby lost another of his five children in 1997 when his 27-year-old son, Ennis, a graduate student at Columbia University, was shot to death while changing a flat tire near a freeway off ramp in Los Angeles. A 22-year-old man was later convicted and sentenced to life in prison without parole.Bill Cosby, 80, owns a home in the western Massachusetts town of Shelburne Falls.Ensa Cosby spoke out on her father’s behalf before his trial last year on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He has pleaded not guilty and remains free on bail ahead of his retrial scheduled for April 2. His first trial ended with a hung jury last year.Ensa Cosby and her sister, Erinn, recorded statements that aired on New York hip-hop radio station Power 105. Ensa Cosby said she strongly believed in her father’s innocence and believed that racism played a big role in aspects of the scandal.“How my father is being punished by a society that still believes black men rape white women but passes off ‘boys will be boys’ when white men are accused, and how the politics of our country prove my disgust. My father has been publicly lynched in the media,” she said.“Boys will be boys” was an apparent reference to President Donald Trump excusing as “locker room talk,” lewd remarks he was recorded making in footage released during the 2016 presidential campaign by “Access Hollywood.”Cosby is due in court next Monday for a pretrial hearing as his lawyers and prosecutors clash over how many other accusers can testify at his retrial.In the wake of Ensa Cosby’s death, Bill Cosby could ask to postpone the pretrial hearing or wave his right to be in court for it. Cosby’s lead attorney, Tom Mesereau, did not immediately respond to messages.A defamation lawsuit filed by seven women who have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct also is pending in Massachusetts.Ensa Cosby largely stayed out of the public spotlight during her life though she did appear in 1989 in a single episode of her father’s popular sitcom “The Cosby Show,’ which ran from 1984-1992.___Associated Press writers Michael Sisak in Philadelphia, and Sarah Betancourt and Alanna Durkin Richer in Boston contributed to this story.

18 2017 6:26 am Top News The Central Silk Board (CSB) has proposed setting up a regional centre for sericulture research in Gorakhpur and installation of reeling machines at 164 silk farms of the state government to increase production of silk in Uttar Pradesh Addressing a press conference on Saturday after his six-day-long tour of various districts CSB chairman KM Hanumantharayappa said the climate of the Terai region bordering Nepal is conducive to production of silk and awareness about silk production will help farmers as silk is ready to sell in about two months faster than most other crops “In UP the ground water is shallower and easily available as compared to Karnataka But UP’s share in production of silk is only three per cent while Karnataka produces 60 per cent of India’s silk UP has potential to increase its share to 15-20 per cent There is a need for awareness about the programmes and subsidies of the central government We are going to discuss our recommendations with the chief minister and the sericulture minister” he said before his meeting with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Sericulture Minister Satyadev Pachauri The CSB said in a statement that UP is a major consumer of silk (about 4000 metric tonnes) but produces only 211 metric tonnes of raw silk Though the state has a big domestic market in Varanasi’s weaving enclave it does not produce enough raw silk to fulfill the local demand it said Hanumantharayappa said farmers involved in silk production in the state have to sell their cocoon at low prices to states like West Bengal and Karnataka and the Board has proposed that a cocoon market be set up so that farmers can sell their produce locally at better rates He added that a site is yet to be identified for this Hanumantharayappa said the Board will also provide assistance in research and training so that the farmers as well as those working in the post-cocoon sector can be better prepared for their jobs Pramod Kumar Dixit a scientist with CSB said the production of silk in UP is largely centred in eight Terai districts “The Board has plan to increase the production in all the Terai districts and also increase the number of silk-producing districts from eight to 14” he added For all the latest Lucknow News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: New York Times | Published: August 15 2014 12:22 am Decades later Bacall’s performance in To Have and Have Not has been so memorialised and near-mummified that it can be easy to forget its initial shock waves Top News Her voice comes at you low and flat wildly insinuating electric and lingering In another age Lauren Bacall’s voice might have been called mannish When she opened her mouth in To Have and Have Not — taking a long drag on a cigarette while locking Humphrey Bogart in her gaze — she staked a claim on the screen and made an immortal Hollywood debut But in 1944 at the exquisitely tender age of 19 she was also projecting an indelible screen persona: that of the tough quick-witted American woman who could fight the good fight alongside her man She may not have been Rosie the Riveter and building bombers but there was something about Bacall a New York girl turned Hollywood starlet that suggested a stubborn strength that could stand up to the times The movie is best remembered for its oft-quoted whistle line (oh you know how) but there’s far more to Bacall’s performance than that bit of dialogue Liberally adapted from the Hemingway novel the Howard Hawks film would cement Bogart as a romantic lead after Casablanca He plays Morgan aka Steve a caustic American who charters his fishing boat off the coast of Vichy-controlled Martinique Bacall plays Marie aka Slim a thief and possibly a prostitute who lifts a wallet off a chump under Bogart’s watch but later helps him smuggle French partisans out of the country If the movie’s political backdrop tends to go missing in the mists of the Bogart and Bacall legend — they fell in love during its making — it’s understandable given how they steam up the joint Before teaching him how to whistle Slim slides into Steve’s lap and leans down to kiss him “Whaddya do that for” he says as if the question needed asking “Been wondering whether I’d like it” she says He asks her verdict She murmurs “I don’t know yet” before going in for another try This time he pulls her close his hand circling her neck and they kiss deeper and longer She stops pulls back and stands taking the camera with her and delivers the film’s other great line: “It’s even better when you help” Decades later Bacall’s performance in To Have and Have Not has been so memorialised and near-mummified that it can be easy to forget its initial shock waves James Agee liked Bacall in To Have and Have Not (“the very entertaining nervy adolescent new blonde”) and predicted in his review that the movie’s appeal was predicated on whether you liked her even if he admitted he was no judge Not everyone was wholly sold on Bacall’s coming out Writing around the same time as Agee the critic Parker Tyler noted “the mild Mephistophelian peaks of her eyebrows” and compared her with screen goddesses like Gene Tierney and Rita Hayworth Tyler was confounded by Bacall’s husk and doesn’t seem to have known that per Hawks’s instructions she had stripped away any trace of what he deemed a potential feminine flaw After signing her Hawks had begun shaping Bacall telling her in an anecdote related in Todd McCarthy’s invaluable biography Howard Hawks: The Grey Fox of Hollywood: “When a woman gets excited or emotional she tends to raise her voice Now there is nothing more unattractive than screeching” For Tyler the results were mannered and synthetic Yet he also rightly pinpointed an androgynous quality in Bacall that helped distinguish her debut and made it such a playful gloss on the classic femme fatale: “Her Hepburnesque Garbotoon clearly confirmed in her subsequent pictures equals Dietrich travestied by a boyish voice” Like Garbo and Dietrich two other goddesses that Tyler invoked Bacall’s on-screen presence in To Have and Have Not draws on both feminine and masculine qualities that suggest an excitingly capable woman Guided by Hawks Bacall calmed her trembling chin gave Bogart a sexy little slap and filled out her character with so much personality that she transcended her third billing (after Walter Brennan) to become an erotic emblem of American wit and war-ready grit There’s another calculus in the Bogart and Bacall pairing Ingrid Bergman may have warmed Bogart up in Casablanca but it was Bacall who lit him on fire She later complained about being in his shadow; in truth each burnished the other’s legend as all four of the movies they made together prove She made some good ones without Bogart who died in 1957 including the fizzy How to Marry a Millionaire But after the 1940s as pneumatic blondes blew up and gender roles were re-established she didn’t often find the film roles that suited her cool steady gaze The movies couldn’t see it but she was born to go quip to quip curled lip to lip with a man The New York Times For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsPublished: February 13 2014 12:04 am As the BJP asks for a mandate it will focus on ‘all India’ factors and the ‘national mood’ Related News State-level contests could disrupt the party’s grand narrative By the end of January two things had become clear about the coming parliamentary elections One that the Congress party after 10 years of rule at the Centre was on its way out The only question now is how humiliating that exit will be Two the BJP was surging ahead in the electoral race So much so that the dream of a Narendra Modi-led BJP government almost free of coalition crutches would seem very real to its supporters But politics has begun to show indications that the story of elections 2014 is not fully written yet For the BJP the best scenario is a near-majority with Modi at the helm But as we move closer to the elections it seems the BJP might have to be content with more modest results How “closed” is the electoral contest likely to be Let us first rule out what these elections cannot produce Even a partisan assessment is unlikely to give the Congress an edge in the coming parliamentary elections Opinion polls are projecting a dismal show by the party In the last 25 years the party’s highest vote share recorded in 1989 was near 40 per cent But its average vote share since it started entering into pre-election alliances has been under 28 per cent Even the most generous projection for the party would be that it will clock in this average and achieve its average conversion rate (technically known as the seat-vote multiplier) of 105 for the same period That would give the Congress 158 seats at the most — and this assuming that it actually manages its average vote share which no serious analyst is likely to vouch for It is not just that electoral history and arithmetic are pitched against a Congress comeback It has allowed politics to go against it A recently conducted Lokniti-CSDS survey (for CNN-IBN) indicated that voters were worried about price rise and dissatisfied with the performance of the UPA They do not want the UPA to be re-elected and rate the prime minister negatively Not more than 27 per cent of respondents said they intended to vote for the Congress So crossing 150 seems tough for the Congress; dipping to its lowest ever tally of 114 as seen in 1999 appears quite likely Should that happen elections 2014 would not produce a close contest either It would be much more one-sided than the Congress would like This gives the elections a sense of being a “closed” contest And yet one needs to balance the Modi-mania with some very real possibilities Early trends can often be deceptive because they do not capture the stratagems and silent currents among voters Three scripts might interrupt the BJP’s grand narrative of a Modi-led millennium First the weeks leading up to the elections will witness a contest between two ideas about elections and campaigning As the BJP asks for a mandate it will focus on “all India” factors and the “national mood” In contrast state parties are likely to puncture the all-India language and disaggregate it into regional state-level or local dialects of politics The success of these players in pitching the battle at the state level rather than at the national level hinges mostly on the southern and eastern states The crucial states will be Tamil Nadu Andhra Pradesh Odisha Bihar West Bengal and Assam Together they have 193 seats in the Lok Sabha For their own survival most state-level parties are interested in keeping the contest confined largely to their respective states This factor works equally against the Congress and the BJP But because the BJP has pitched its stakes so high regionalisation of the contest would hurt it more Second much of the BJP’s success is expected to come from the north and the west The party is already strong there Yet two factors may challenge the BJP in this region Most crucial is the battle for Uttar Pradesh While recent opinion polls suggest that the BJP is poised to perform much better than it did in the last two elections it would be too early to write off the SP and BSP If UP throws up even the semblance of a triangular fight then the election suddenly becomes wide open That will fracture the BJP’s famous north-plus-west base Besides the possibility of the Aam Aadmi Party doing well in Haryana and Punjab could further dent the north-plus-west story The AAP is already sitting pretty on its newly acquired base in Delhi Contrary to media pronouncements on the AAP’s failure it has not lost the limelight or popularity there With the AAP doing well in Delhi-Haryana-Punjab the BJP could fail to gain from Congress losses That explains the strident attacks on the AAP coming from the BJP Third post-election politics now suddenly promises to be complex with renewed talk of a Third Front Protagonists of the Third Front point out that the non-Congress and non-BJP vote share has consistently remained in the range of 45-50 per cent So there is a space waiting to be politically appropriated and the best way of doing that is to form multiple coalitions keeping out the Congress and BJP This arithmetic has not produced a corresponding politics so far But the formation of a Third Front could send negative signals to the BJP’s post-election calculations By entering into an alliance with Left parties the AIADMK has laid to rest speculation that it would support the BJP (at least for now) With this decision the prospect that many state parties might extend support to the BJP after the Lok Sabha polls has been weakened Given the way Nitish Kumar and earlier Naveen Patnaik parted ways with the BJP it is unlikely they will be allies Mamata Banerjee has not been very enthusiastic about a tie-up with the BJP either This leaves loose cannons like the YSR Congress which might choose to talk business with the BJP though only after elections And the BJP can accommodate only one of the Andhra parties — the TDP or the YSR Congress The Third Front thus reduces the BJP’s room for manoeuvre in post-election calculations Moreover for most Third Front parties it makes sense to keep the electoral contest fragmented and defined in terms of state-level competition Thus while Third Front politics is about post-election scenarios it is also about setting the terms of the contest to shape the outcome itself What the Third Front seeks to do then is ensure that while the Congress loses more seats on its own the electoral contest is framed in such a manner that the BJP fails to achieve the dramatic victory that has been projected for it in 2014 The way in which these three scripts — state-level contests breaching the BJP’s north-plus-west bastion and the BJP’s reduced room for post-election manoeuvre — unfold will determine how “closed” the ensuing contest is The writer teaches political science at the University of Pune express@expressindiacom For all the
