Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam's (TGTE) Prime Minister Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran's interview with Ceylon Today.

If the Tamil population voted for a Unitary State, or for Federalism, or for a 'Non Federal-Federalism', TGTE will accept that verdict.”

— Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran

COLOMBO, SRI LANKA, November 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Tamils must decide their political destiny through a Referendum – TGTE will accept their verdict: Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam's (TGTE) Prime Minister Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran's interview with Ceylon Today.

QUESTION & ANSWEAR:

1) QUESTION: In light of the present political situation in the country, including the ongoing constitutional reforms process, the particular efforts of the local Tamil political representation in this regard, and most recently positive attempts towards reconciliation undertaken by certain Tamil Diaspora groups, such as the Global Tamil Forum, what are the interventions made by the TGTE in relation to Sri Lanka?

ANSWER: The TGTE's position is that the Tamil people's sovereignty lies with them. Since the Tamil people did not participate in the 1972 and/or 1978 Constitution making process, they have not delegated their sovereignty to the Government in Colombo. Thus, we believe as a priority for any political resolution today, the Tamil nation should decide in what form they want to participate in that process of a political resolution. The TGTE's position, since its inception, is that the Tamil nation, living inside the island of Sri Lanka and outside, should decide on their political destiny, through peaceful and democratic means to express their wishes, through a referendum.

The referendum that we envisage is not just for a yes or no vote for an independent State, but a referendum containing options such as a unitary State, a federal State, a confederation and an independent State.

2) QUESTION: In the context where there are many disparate, polemically opposed, ideological factions within the Tamil Diaspora, who have a negative, pro-LTTE connotation, locally however, especially among the Sinhalese, the TGTE are known as the torchbearers for the separatist, Eelamist cause. Does the TGTE still hold strong separatist and/or nationalistic views?

ANSWER: I can say with confidence that there is a consensus among all the Diaspora groups that the Tamil national question should be resolved through a referendum. Deciding our own political destiny through a referendum is a fundamental human right. Thus, it is not only a political issue but more importantly a human rights issue. International practices also vouch for it. Whether it be South Sudan (Machakos Protocol) or the Good Friday Agreement or the Serbian-Montenegrin agreement or the Papua New Guinea-Bougainville Peace Agreement, all mandate that national questions should be resolved through a referendum.

I must also mention here that when I say referendum, I mean that it is a referendum for the particular nation not for the whole country. With respect to the Quebec referendum, for example, the Canadian Supreme Court did not say that the referendum should be held throughout Canada but only in Quebec.

At the same time, the TGTE believes that due to the rigid Sinhala Buddhist ethnocratic nature of the Sri Lankan State, only through independence can we live peacefully with dignity in the island of Sri Lanka.

Mass killings of Tamils and the large-scale rape of Tamil women in 1958, 1977, 1983 and 2009 in Mullivaikkal, and the latest reports of rape camps of Tamil women run by the Sri Lankan military, are a testament to this belief and conviction.

I also want to bring to attention the late journalist, Tarzie Vittachi's book "Emergency '58: The Story of the Ceylon Race Riots." This book was written immediately after the mass killings of Tamils in 1958. Vittachi, at that time, concluded his book by asking "Have the Sinhalese and Tamils come to parting their ways?" Tamils have been asking this question since the 1958 mass killings, and in the 1977 General Election, they voted overwhelmingly to support the creation of a free Tamil Eelam.

However, I hasten to also add that if the Tamil population voted for a unitary State or for federalism or for a 'non federal-federalism', we will accept that verdict.

3) QUESTION: If the answer is yes in relation to separatism, does the TGTE not feel that this is contrary to the country's best interests including those of all the communities residing within the nation?

ANSWER: We believe that an independent State of Tamil Eelam will contribute to friendly relations between all the communities residing in the island of Sri Lanka. The end is not to preserve the status quo or to preserve the existing borders but to create peace and friendly relations among the peoples of the island.

Moreover, we believe by having a permanent resolution in the form of an independent State we could remove the racial bidding within the Sinhala polity. The Sinhala leaders can focus on the day-to-day problems of the common man. It will also contribute to democracy and development.

An argument can be made that there will always be tension between Sri Lanka and Tamil Eelam. But we believe it need not be like that. There is no tension between Norway and Sweden or between Singapore and Malaysia.

Even if there were to be some tension, there are international legal principles and an international mechanism to manage it rather than for containing intrastate violence.

4) QUESTION: Is there a split or are there splits within the Tamil Diaspora?

ANSWER: As I said earlier, on the fundamental issues such as that the right of the Tamils to constitute a nation, that the North Eastern parts of the island constitute the traditional homeland of the Tamils, and that the Tamils should be allowed to realize their inherent right to self-determination, there is no difference of opinion. I also admit that some of the Tamil Diaspora groups believe that the Tamils' right to self-determination can be realized within the existing borders.

5) QUESTION: What are the canvassing and lobbying efforts (financially and diplomatically) with which the TGTE is engaged in?

ANSWER: The TGTE firmly believes that for any political move power is essential. We have seen that in present international relations and international law, non-State actors have become a power to be reckoned with. Thus, we are engaged in mobilizing the international community. In this regard, we successfully launched a campaign to collect 1.6 million signatures calling for the referral of Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court.

6) QUESTION: Does the TGTE still believe in a LTTE resurgence? Does the TGTE advocate terrorism?

ANSWER: The TGTE's Constitution mandates that it should realize its political goals through peaceful means. In fact, diplomats in various countries are directly engaged with the TGTE.

7) QUESTION: What does the TGTE make of the international communities', the West's and the United Nations' (UN) latest position with regard to the country?

ANSWER:Immediately after the Mullivaikkal genocide, the international community's position was that justice must be done to the Tamils and that the perpetrators of international crimes should be brought to justice. However, they were of the view that it was carried out by leaders of the previous regime. Thus, they brought the Sirisena (President Maithripala Sirisena) regime into power hoping that he will address accountability and the Tamil national question. However, last month's damning report of the UN Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has dispelled this illusion. Now the international community has started to realize that the State itself is the cause for the impunity and the genocide of the Tamils.

8) QUESTION: On the question of investigations into alleged war crimes committed by the Sri Lankan armed forces, how will the accountability for atrocities committed by the Tigers be achieved and what will be the intervention made by the TGTE in this regard?

ANSWER: The Tamils' fervent hope is to seek justice for the genocide committed in Mullivaikkal.

9) QUESTION: What does the TGTE make of the country's present situation, especially the state of reconciliation in the country?

ANSWER: As far as the situation of the Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka is concerned, when we look at the big picture, the structural genocide is still continuing.

Prisoners of War are still in detention. The Army still occupies the Tamil homeland. There is no information about the disappeared, while torture and sexual violence is still rampant.

In the South, during the initial period of the Sirisena regime there were some democratic measures introduced. However, now the Sirisena regime in the South is also engaged in 'democratic deconsolidation' like that of Rajapaksa.

10) QUESTION: Is the TGTE satisfied with the Tamil political representation (the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and the Tamil Progressive Alliance (TPA)?

ANSWER: We understand the legal restraints on the domestic leadership to fully articulate the Tamil political aspirations due to the 6th Amendment to the Constitution. The 6th Amendment prohibits calling for an independent State but it does not prohibit calling for the repeal of the 6th Amendment. We want the Tamil domestic political leadership to bring this to the attention of the international community, rather than giving a wrong picture that Tamils no longer claim an independent State. They themselves know that this is not true. Mullivaikkal has strengthened the call for an independent State.

If anyone claims, especially after Mullivaikkal, that the Tamils have given up the call for an independent State, it is a fake claim.

Moreover, we expect the domestic leadership to take some creative action similar to the referendums organized by the Venezuelan opposition parties and the proposed referendums in Iraqi Kurdistan and Catalonia. These referendums were not organized by the UN or by any foreign countries. These referendums were organized by the local leadership.

11) QUESTION: Does the TGTE plan to contest any future national level election in Sri Lanka?

ANSWER: As I have stated on previous occasions, since the Tamils have not delegated their sovereignty to the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) we do not consider Sri Lankan elections as legitimate. However, we are willing to use these elections as a platform to advance our goals. For us to do that the 6th Amendment should be repealed.

12) QUESTION: Do you currently work with Sri Lankan Government or intend to in the future?

ANSWER: As I have stated earlier, we intend to work with the Sri Lankan Government with respect to the logistics and timeframe for a referendum.

13) QUESTION: Previously, TNA MP President's Counsel M.A. Sumanthiran told media that if a solution to the national issue were to be brought in via a proposed new Constitution, they would guarantee Diaspora investment in the country for purposes of development. What do you make of this statement? What is the investment (not solely monetary) the Diaspora is willing to make in the country? And, what do you make of the present state of affairs with regard to the constitutional reforms process and the role of the Diaspora in it?

ANSWER: As I have stated earlier, any permanent political resolution should come through a referendum held for the Tamil nation. Once a political resolution is obtained through a referendum, then the Diaspora will bring its expertise in various fields as well as financial investments to entities in the island of Sri Lanka.

The TGTE promulgated a freedom charter with the participation of more than one million people.

In the freedom charter, the distinct identity of the Muslims is recognized; education shall be compulsory and free for all. Tamil, Sinhala, and English shall be the official languages of Tamil Eelam.

Moreover, since Tamil Eelam is strategically located in the Indian Ocean, it will also contribute to peace and harmony in the Indian Ocean.

14) QUESTION: What do you make of the work done or the lack of it, whichever way you see it, by the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) and elsewhere on the proposition of a merger of the North and the East?

ANSWER: As we stated during the NPC election, we did not see and do not see that the Provincial Council can deliver anything meaningful. This view has now been corroborated by Chief Minister C.V. Vigneswaran himself.

With respect to the merger, Sri Lankan Government acknowledged that the North-East part of Sri Lanka constitutes the Tamil homeland in the Indo-Sri Lanka Accord. The demerger occurred on technical grounds.

If Sri Lankan Government, including the present Government, is sincere about Tamil aspirations, they can simply remerge this with a simple majority. A two-thirds majority is not necessary for the merger.

Roxot Launches Roxot Data Hub That Saves Publishers Time on Aggregating Programmatic Data and Helps Manage Discrepancies

Roxot Data Hub Total Dashboards

Roxot Data Hub Total Dashboards

Roxot has launched Roxot Data Hub, a programmatic reporting tool that automatically aggregates data from all major demand sources and ad servers

Our goal was to develop a powerful, yet easy programmatic reporting tool that would streamline publishers' workflows and empower them to allocate more resources to direct revenue-producing tasks.”

— Radmir Nasyrov, CEO at Roxot

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Roxot Launches Roxot Data Hub that Saves Publishers Time on Aggregating Programmatic Data and Helps Manage Discrepancies

Just to understand the general performance of their ad stack, publishers have to export reports from their programmatic demand partners and ad server, manually format excel files, and resolve the data by combining reports in one master file. Ad Operation professionals spend hours a day trying to accomplish more sophisticated tasks such as investigating major discrepancies, identifying causes of unexpected revenue drops, or analyzing SSP's performance with greater precision. Long-drawn-out troubleshooting directly affects publishers' yields. Due to laborious data management and lack of resources, publishers can't conduct daily analytics, resulting in revenue slipping through the cracks.

To plug this time sink, Roxot has launched Roxot Data Hub, a programmatic reporting tool that automatically aggregates data from all major demand sources and ad servers, matching 3rd-party tags with publisher's sites/placements/etc. Both pre-build dashboards for the most common publisher's analytical tasks and exportable custom reports are available. Also, the tool automatically calculates the discrepancy between 3rd-party and ad server data for sites, ad units, and demand partners.

Roxot Data Hub has been working in collaboration with Roxot's current clients using Prebid Analytics. "It's great that there are so many demand partners these days to help increase revenue. However, every new partner is a new system that internally slows down the process and fragments reporting. So when you are trying to manage yield, it makes it very difficult to get a full picture of who your best partners are and where it's best to allocate your inventory" says Bodhi Short, President at Cordless Media.

"Our goal was to develop a powerful, yet straight-forward programmatic reporting tool that would streamline publishers' workflows and empower them to allocate more resources to direct revenue-producing tasks." – Radmir Nasyrov, CEO at Roxot.

"Roxot Data Hub is an excellent way to pull in all data in one encompassing view across as many bidders as someone may have. It gives us the tools to map specifically what means what within each system given that all partners have a slightly different ways of doing things." Bodhi Short says.

Roxot Data Hub main features include but are not limited to automatic aggregation, label-based data matching, forecasting & progress tracking, automatic discrepancy indicators, deep segmentation, and custom reports export. In the near future, Roxot plans to integrate the tool with Prebid Analytics by Roxot that would allow publishers to manage 3rd-party, ad server's, and client-side data in one place.

Inorganic pigments accounted for the highest market share among product type segments in the global pigments market. Titanium dioxide is the largest sub-segment, followed by iron oxide, among the inorganic pigments segment.

Iron oxide pigments are gaining popularity owing to its non-toxicity, broad range of colors such as yellow, red, orange, brown and, black, chemical stability, and high performance-price ratio. Increasing demand for iron oxide and titanium dioxide is propelling growth of the inorganic pigments segment.

Among end-use industries, paints and coatings was the dominant segment in 2016 and is expected to retain its dominance over the forecast period.

Key Takeaways of the Market:

According to Coherent Market Insights study, Asia Pacific accounted for the highest market share of 41.06% in terms of revenue in the global pigments market in 2016.

Dr. Marilyn Sorensen of The Self-Esteem Institute Returns to CUTV News Radio

EUGENE, OREGON, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — When you have unhealthy self-esteem, you can find something negative about yourself in everything that goes on around you. You make up stories about what others are thinking. If you enter a room and see someone you know leave the room, you tell yourself she left because she saw you.

Recent surveys have shown that as much as 85 percent of the world's population is affected by low self-esteem. Left unaddressed, it can have devastating effects on an individual.

According to Dr. Marilyn Sorensen, healthy self-esteem is fundamental to creating the life we want to experience. Dr. Sorensen is the founder of The Self-Esteem Institute. For 20 years, she has been helping people around the world develop a healthy and accurate view of themselves.

“Unhealthy self-esteem is the result of believing something that is not based on fact, truth or history. What we believe to be true about ourselves and how others perceive us is often a story we make up: in other words: fiction,” says Dr. Sorensen. “I help them see that what they are saying to themselves about themselves is not based on fact, truth, or history, but instead is based on fear.

Healthy self-esteem allows us the freedom to pursue our goals and initiate relationships without excessive fear because we feel acceptable.

“What I do is really fun, because people see the light very quickly,” says Dr. Sorensen. “They are excited to understand what they are doing to cause the negative feelings they wrestle with in their daily lives and that they can do something about it.”

Dr. Sorensen has dedicated her entire career to exploring the nature of unhealthy self-esteem. Her interest in the subject was born out of her personal experience with unhealthy self-esteem.

“I kind of had this feeling that people didn’t really like me. I always had that fear,” says Dr. Sorensen. “I always felt a little inadequate because I grew up very poor. My parents were hard working, but they were not emotionally supportive. I kind of had to become my own cheerleader.”

Dr. Sorensen realized her true calling while teaching high school music and coaching girls athletics, helping young people be successful at something and proud of their accomplishments. She realized that she had the ability
to motivate them. She says that to her, her enthusiasm and creativity were far more important than just teaching kids music. She saw her role as giving them opportunities to succeed with the belief that they could succeed if they only applied themselves.

“Teaching them to see that they had abilities would set their hopes and dreams beyond what they likely saw before them. They would set higher goals than they might have otherwise to make the most of their lives,” says Dr. Sorensen. “My gift was to help kids feel better about themselves. I’ve had the ability to motivate people.”

Today, Dr. Sorensen is the author of five books on the subject of self-esteem. Her first book, Breaking the Chain of Low Self Esteem, has been popular worldwide and is available in both English and Spanish.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Marilyn Sorensen in an interview with Jim Masters every Wednesday from November 22nd to January 24th at 3pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Darlene Rollins of Earthwalk Ways Institute and Retreat to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

FREDERICKSBURG, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Life is an adventure, but it often doesn’t turn out like we planned. It also inevitably includes challenges, frustrations, crises and ultimately death. The ancient ones who lived close to nature understood this earthly experience as a soul journey and a school of development that if surrendered to, eventually brings us to greater wisdom, love and peace.

Darlene has lived most of her 66 years learning to see beyond the ordinary ways of looking at life’s big and small moments. She has learned a way of turning life’s painful, stressful and challenging experiences into transformational passages that bring forth ever deepening unfolding and awareness of the beauty of life. 

For the past 20 years she has been a spiritual life coach and owner of Earthwalk Ways Institute and Retreat, a school and sanctuary within the tranquility and enchantment of nature. Nestled in a fairy forest, along a bold stream near Fredericksburg Virginia, the Earthwalk Retreat offers sacred refuge, and a transformational cocoon for individuals and small groups.  

Darlene offers a wide variety of educational and enlightening programs, including retreat intensives, nature solo quests, on line webinars, sessions and workshops which offer practical, detailed maps and effective tools for the soul journey. She calls this approach The Art of Deep Listening, Soul Whispering and Natural Communion. It is based on a contemporary spiritual path known as the Pathwork®

“Everything that happens in life is about the journey of the soul,” explains Darlene. “When we mistakenly interpret our life through the very narrow lens of our success or failure as defined by our culture or family, or our own perfectionistic dictates, we experience a self- alienation that robs us of the mystery and beauty of life. People feel that life is supposed to be a continuous ascent; that all we need to do is climb a ladder and if we keep climbing, eventually we will get there. But Life is a cycle that ultimately leads into and through the total surrender of all our physical powers and outer achievements. This letting go is actually an expansion into our larger Self. What we are left with is the awareness that what is most important is to fully embrace the journey and savor all the moments." 

Darlene reminds people of that delicious possibility of participation in the deep call and response of the natural world through the simple awareness of the ongoing sensory flows within and around us. Now research is coming full circle and has shown that sensory time spent in nature is a powerful anti-dote for stress and highly beneficial for body and spirit.   

“Earthwalk Ways unveils a deeper part of our nature, and helps us rediscover our connection to all of nature.  The whole cosmos is an evolutionary process and we’re at a moment in time that requires people to reconnect with these evolutionary powers of nature that go far beyond us.”   

For a personal and planetary ecology that is full of life and spirit, soul and nature, meaning and movement, wisdom and conscious evolution, join Darlene in this exploration of self, and self-fulfillment. Let Darlene guide you on an adventure deep into the heart of this mystery called Life.

CUTV News Radio will feature Darlene Rollins in an interview with Jim Masters on November 22nd at 11am EST.
