Constitution is a Tool, not an End Result

Mallika Shakya, Assistant Professor at South Asian University As a sociologist/anthropologist who is closely following the political developments in Nepal, what is your take on new constitution of Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal? Nepal has spent almost a decade to write this new constitution and this is our sixth constitution. Earlier constitutions could not address the economic, political, social and cultural aspirations of its people which is why demands for a Constituent Assembly emerged. In that sense, this new constitution is not only about producing a documentbut about sharing of power. It is actually about our national imagination, of what Nepal is and should be, for the people of various classes and castes, ethnicities and regionalities, and its men and women.

The Most Common Passwords In 2016 Are Truly Terrible

The most popular one of all? “123456.” ? Nina Golgowski Trends reporter, The Huffington Post Cybersecurity is on many people’s minds these days, and yet using “password” as a password is apparently still a thing. On Friday, password management company Keeper Security released a list of the most common passwords of 2016 ― and it’s, well, shameful. The most popular password, making up nearly 17 percent of the 10 million passwords the company analyzed, was “123456.” “Password” was also among the top 10 passwords, coming in as the eighth most common. Keeper Security assembled the list using a collection of passwords that were leaked through data breaches in 2016. The company didn’t include leaked passwords if the breaches were announced that year but occurred prior to 2016, co-founder and CEO Darren Guccione noted in a blog post that revealed the findings. Scroll down to see the full list of common passwords. ANDREW BROOKES/GETTY IMAGESThe most common password of 2016 was “123456,” a security company has revealed.

Dutch PM Rutte: ‘If you don’t like it here, then leave’

Dutch PM Rutte: ‘If you don’t like it here, then leave’ Image caption: Mr Rutte’s blunt message was published in several newspapers and on his party’s website Weeks before Dutch voters go to the polls, Prime Minister Mark Rutte has said that anyone who rejects the country’s values should leave. “Act normal, or go away,” he says, in a message seen as taking on the anti-immigration Freedom party currently running high in the opinion polls. The Dutch felt increasingly uncomfortable with people who abused the very freedom they came in search of, Mr Rutte argued. Elections are taking place on 15 March. Geert Wilders’ Freedom party (PVV) is running neck-and-neck in the polls with Mr Rutte’s liberal VVD and branded Mr Rutte’s message as a downright lie. “The man of open borders, asylum tsunami, mass immigration, Islamisation, lies and deceit,” he tweeted.
