Ignoring India's concerns and veiled warning that it would drag the US to the World Trade Organisation, President Barack Obama has signed into law a bill that would provide free health care to the first responders of the twin-tower terrorist attack in New York in September 2001. Obama took some time off from his vacation in Hawaii to sign the bill that provides for a fund of $ 4.2 billion for the free health care to 9/11 responders, a portion of which is being raised by extending an increase in some categories of H-1B visa fee that would mainly affect Indian IT companies. India has objected to such an increase. It also imposes a two per cent levy on goods and services the US imports from certain developing countries, including India. An extension in increase in H-1B visa fee is estimated to cost Indian companies $ 200 million. Indian Commerce Minister Anand Sharma had termed it as a retrograde step for greater trade engagement with the US. "I was honoured to sign the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act to ensure that rescue and recovery workers, residents, students, and others suffering from health consequences related to the World Trade Center disaster have access to the medical monitoring and treatment they need," Obama said in his signing statement.

Pakistan's anti-terrorism law needs to be improved because thousands of terrorists apprehended by law enforcement agencies were bailed out in courts and again indulged in terrorist activities, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said. Gilani made the remarks while speaking in the National Assembly or lower house of parliament on reports by the foreign media on Pakistan's security agencies. He made it clear that terrorists nabbed by security agencies were bailed out because there had been no improvements in the Anti-Terrorism Act. Husain expands his Quiznos biz P- 28 Shawn plans to...

Soft spoken and polite, SadiqHussain is one such person who does not believe getting it all on the silver platter. He believes in his own self efforts and determination coupled with a strong conviction in his religious beliefs to battle it all the way to ensure success and in the process leave lessons to be learnt. After a job-related injury and the economic melt- down in 2008 Sadiq’s long career at LUMIS came to end but not his abilities to turn the table around. He took an intensive training in restaurant manage- ment and launched his first Quiznos at the Hacienda Crossings Plaza in Pleasanton backed by his wife and children as his support staff. Within two years Sadiqopened his second store two exits away in Livermore on 580 close to Home Depot providing job opportunities for several school kids in the area. “Faith in God is extremely important in life for me,” Sadiq explained to me as I munched on a complimentary Tuna Sandwich at his new Quiznos that looked spotless as customers jammed his restaurant.
