    The trade war that President Donald Trump has been threatening has finally started, with US tariffs of 25% on $34 billion worth of imports from China and retaliatory tariffs in China on imports worth the same amount from the US having kicked in on Friday. President Trump has threatened to retaliate against the Chinese retaliation. China has promised to return the favour. In other words, the US and China are likely to impose penal tariffs on their entire imports from each other. The rest of the world would suffer collateral damage, even if the US were to refrain from penalising imports from other countries.

    The Supreme Court bench headed by the Chief Justice on Tuesday reminded not just the Government of India, but the nation as a whole, where the buck stops — or, at least, where it must — when it comes to cracking down on mob violence and killing: Government of India. The apex court underlined two aspects of the same problem of the lack of deterrence.

    Option A
    The government’s reported move to set up an expert panel to look at decriminalising some of the offences in the Companies Act is a good idea. It will reduce the burden on trial courts and save time and expenses of a legal proceeding. The new system must be simple, rule-based and without any discretion that increases the chances for arbitrariness. True, the Companies Act defines what constitutes a fraud. But penalties must also be commensurate with the offence, not harsh and disproportionate.

Tiny Croatia, with a population less than aquarter of greater Delhi, is ranked second — deservedly —as it played with style and dominated much of the game, before falling 2-4 to the champions of 1998. Exhaustion had a role to play in Croatia’s defeat, after all.

    The Law Commission’s recommendation to legalise betting in sports and gambling is welcome. If accepted, it would end a gamut of criminal activities, curb money laundering and tax evasion, and boost tax collections.

    Reliance Industries has proposed to bring optical fibre to the home in 1,100 towns. This is good news that promises to unleash new creativity across urban India, creating new businesses, enhancing the quality and quantity of education and healthcare, and creating new possibilities in entertainment. At the same time, such a massive expansion of operations by one single connectivity provider would call for strict monitoring and enforcement of regulatory norms, to prevent abuse of monopoly and, in particular, safeguard net neutrality.

    DNA profiling has proved to be an invaluable and basic tool in exonerating innocents and identifying missing persons, besides solving crimes such as murder, rape, human trafficking, theft and burglary. Figures from the National Crime Records Bureau suggest that more than three lakh such crimes take place every year in the country. However, the conviction rate is about 30%. Expanding the use of DNA testing will improve conviction rates, and speed up justice delivery. At the same time, concerns about misuse and invasion of privacy need to be addressed.
