again this week when a lunar eclipse made the moon look sort of reddish This is known as a Blood Moon and in certain circles it was seen as the Start of Something Big “The heavens are God’s billboard” said televangelist John Hagee author of the best-selling Four Blood Moons: Something Is About to Change This is the same Hagee who once theorised that Hurricane Katrina was God’s punishment to New Orleans for scheduling a gay pride parade He later apologised And moved on To the moon As doomsday scenarios go this one is not particularly original: the basic evangelical vision of trouble in the Middle East followed by the Second Coming And red moons happen all the time If you wanted a sign of the end of days this week there are lots better candidates You can read all about that in my upcoming book The End of Guacamole The Blood Moon predictions are going to be with us for a while because there will be four of the same lunar eclipses over the next year and a half And Hagee’s theories have sold a heck of a lot of books on Amazon But they lack the exciting specificity of the classic end-of-the-world prophecies Like polar shifts (earth crust moves triggering volcanoes floods and eliminating all life-forms) or the Amazing Criswell who was waiting for a black rainbow to show up and suck off all the oxygen Television is taking up the slack It’s awash with doomsday stories Killer viruses planetary power failures nuclear war Plus your basic Rapture Chris Carter the X-Files creator who’s offering The After was apparently really moved by that Mayan-calendar-ends crisis in 2012 “There was nervousness in the air… Certainly the power of that played a part in my desire to do something about a world-changing event” he told TV Guide People do you remember being all that worried about the Mayan calendar Or zombies Zombies are still so popular It would be nice if we were being barraged with a new series about a utopian future where everybody got along except your occasional Romulan Yet here we are The feel-good side of end-of-the-world predictions is that everything seems so nice the day after We’re still here There’s oxygen Unless you’re someone like Robert Fitzpatrick a follower of the late Harold Camping a serial apocalypse predictor who claimed Judgment Day was going to be May 21 2011 Fitzpatrick spent what he said was his life savings putting warning signs in the New York City subway system (“Global Earthquake: The Greatest Ever”) Remember Y2K and all the millennium end-of-the-world scenarios Years ago I worked on a project to collect all the predictions about terrible things that were going to happen in the year 2000 and I enjoyed it very much I talked to a guy living on a mountain who was both waiting for the end and writing a movie script about it Also an official in a small Illinois town that had been founded on a plan to airlift refugees into space This was all based on the work of the town’s founder Richard Kieninger who was eventually kicked out amid rumours of sexual misbehaviour The rest of the community decided to just concentrate on building self-sufficient lifestyles And then the pope It was only a year ago that the College of Cardinals was meeting in the Vatican to elect a pope and some people were pointing out that this one was going to be the last pontiff according to a 12th-century prediction made by St Malachy who also mentioned the destruction of Rome and “many tribulations” everywhere True Malachy’s list was probably a forgery But who would have predicted that Catholics would get a new pope who was obsessed with the poor and totally uninterested in people’s sex lives Nobody Talking heads sniffed when Francis was chosen and said the cardinals “probably did not come up with the most progressive pope in the history of the world” Actually that would have been me Our moral today is that things often turn out better than we might have imagined Look on the bright side Even when it’s

the G-8 countries met in GenoaItalyto back the establishment of the Global Fund to Fight AIDSTuberculosis and Malaria a new funding mechanism that dramatically increased resources available to fight preventabletreatable diseases stalking the poor and depleting developing economies around the globe In 2001very few people almost nonereally living with HIV in Africa had access to antiretroviral medicines Todaymore than 33 million people more than half of those on treatment worldwide are on treatment supported by the Global Fund: a true victory for the global community The fund and the US international AIDS programmePepfar (the Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief programme)are the most ambitious global health endeavours in generations Now10 years since its foundingthe Global Fund is facing a serious financial shortfalland the funds board voted recently not to accept new grant requests until at least 2014 This funding deficit hit right when the end of AIDS became plausible: Last yearscientific breakthroughs provided conclusive evidence that putting more people on treatment earlier can significantly reduce incidence of HIV Treatment is prevention Beyond AIDSthe Global Fund is currently the largest donor in the world for tuberculosis and malaria programmes Operating in 150 countriesit has treated more than 8 million cases of tuberculosis and distributed 230 million insecticide-treated nets Deaths from malaria are down nearly 40 per cent in most of Africa The question is not whether the Global Fund worksbut how to ensure it keeps working for years to come In my mindthere are four reasons this is imperative: Firstthe world needs to expandnot contractaccess to health care because of the sheer burden of disease It is unconscionable thatin 2012we are still living in a world where millions of poor people die of preventable and treatable diseases Secondthe Fund doesnt simply give handouts; it takes the longer road of investing in and working with health ministries In doing soit seeks to build local health systemsdevelop platforms for transparency and accountabilityboost local procurement and improve supply chainsand train civil servants and health professionals This approach has had profound spillover effects on other health and development priorities In central Haitifor exampleestablishing effective treatment programmes for AIDStuberculosisand malaria has raised the standard of care for chronic conditions like major mental illnessheart failure and several forms of cancer Thirdthe Global Fund proves how much multilateral organisations can accomplish While the usual players the G-8say bear the greatest financial burdenI would urge some of the recipient countries to consider themselves partners of and contributors to the fund In todays global economycountries like IndiaRussia and China play meaningful roles as donors and as recipients of grants The Global Fund is a truly multilateral organisationand stronger for it Fourtha recession is a lousy excuse to starve one of the best (and only) instruments we have for helping people who live on a few dollars a day Most marginalised populations around the globe have always faced economic contraction; financial crisis has been ongoing for them since the day they were born It would be a great mistake to allow one of the worlds most effective global health institutions to fail because we need to get our own fiscal house in order We need to summon the funding and political willnowto protect the hard-fought progress of the past decade Simply putif we allow the fund to failmany people will dieand we will forfeit the chance at the AIDS-free generation that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for in November This is no time to step back The writer is chairman of the

order criticising the notification by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) Supreme Court issued notice to the AAP government on the Delhi HC order on the MHA notification AFP The Supreme Court asked the Delhi government to reply in three weeks on the Centre’s plea for a stay of the high court order holding its notification limiting power of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) as ‘suspect’ Clarifying that there is no stay on observations made by the Delhi High Court single judge in the May 25 judgement a vacation bench comprising Justices AK Sikri and UU Lalit said "we are not inclined to go into the issue of stay at this stage and after getting the reply we will look into it" The apex court also issued a notice to the Delhi government on Centre’s appeal against the hight court order allowing ACB to take action against bureaucrats The Delhi government has been asked to reply on this order within 6 weeks It also asked the high court to proceed on the Delhi government’s fresh petition independently without being influenced by observations made in the 25 May verdict The court also said that the Delhi High Court order criticising the MHA notification created uncertainty about the equation between the Delhi government and the Delhi Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung accoding to CNN-IBN At the outset the apex court bench said that it is up to the Delhi government to decide whether they want to pursue the matter in the Supreme Court or the High Court as the issues are related to Centre’s notification The bench also suggested that the matters from High Court be transferred to the apex court "Let it be decided for once and all by the final court" the bench said Meanwhile Home Minister Rajnath Singh reacted to the Kejriwal-Jung row and said "We don’t want to run Delhi government through anyone but upholding Constitutional provisions is our responsibility" AAP leader Somnath Bharti who had moved the resolution against the MHA notification in the Delhi Assembly called the Supreme Court order a "setback for the people of Delhi not the AAP government" The row between the Centre and the Delhi government had intensified with the former challenging the Delhi High Court’s order that termed a notification of Union Home Ministry barring the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) from acting against its officials ‘suspect’ A Special Leave Petition (SLP) was filed in the registry of the apex court on Wednesday evening challenging the 25 May order of the High Court which was hearing the bail application of a Delhi Police constable arrested by the ACB of Delhi government on bribery charges In its petition before the Supreme Court Centre has said that the observations made by the High Court led to uncertainty and made everyday administration in the national capital difficult It has said that there was a need for clear interpretation of Article 239 AA of the Constitution in balance of equation between the Delhi government and the LG The Centre also sought stay of the High Court judgement saying it was delivered without hearing it and listed nine grounds for setting it aside including that it "upsets the delicate constitutional balance for governance of Delhi and that too without an opportunity of hearing being given to the Union of India" Among the other grounds raised the Ministry of Home Affairs has said the HC single judge erred in adjudicating the issue regarding the competence of the ACB of the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) to act on the complaint in the present case without issuing it notice and hearing submission of Union of India The petition said that the High Court failed to comply with the fundamental norm of natural justice – the right to be heard and despite recording that "this is an important constitutional issue which has a bearing on the executive authority of the Union" and the "issue cannot be finally determined without hearing the union and examining its stand" the single judge did not hear it The Centre has also said the judge has recorded that the issue is pending before another bench but preferred to go ahead with it without referring it to the bench already seized of the issue Assailing the high court judgement it said that under Article 239AA(3)(a) of the Constitution the legislative assembly of Delhi is vested with the powers only in so far as such matter is applicable to the Union Territory and not otherwise Further the petition has said the constitution status of the NCTD is not the same as that of a state and it is a centrally administered territory of the Union under Schedule 1 Part II and its legislative and executive powers are restricted constitutionally It has said questions of law of general public importance arise in the facts and circumstances of the case including whether it is entitled to be heard wherein "a notification issued by it is contended to be invalid by a party to the proceedings" On 25 May while making a remark on the MHA notification Justice Vipin Sanghi of the Delhi High Court had said "In my view since the Union lacks the executive authority to act in respect of matters dealt with in Entries 1 & 2 of List III of the Seventh Schedule the further executive fiat issued by the Union Government on May 21 2015 is also suspect" The order came on a day when Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had taken to the streets and was holding an ‘open cabinet meeting’ in central Delhi against the alleged oppressive measures being used by the Centre to curtail powers of the Delhi government The AAP government in Delhi and the Lt Governor have been involved in a public spat over his powers vis-a-vis an elected government The Centre had on 21 May issued its notification siding with the Lt Governor (With inputs
