A Tour To Rajasthan, India – The Land Of Palaces And Maharajas?

Rajasthan, the land of impeccable beauty, is a one stop destination for tourists around the globe. Famous for its sand dunes, lakes, havelis, shopping districts, forts and palaces Rajasthan is one place where people can enjoy while living in utmost luxury and receiving a desired hospitality similar to those of the Maharajas (King). If you want to travel Rajasthan all you need, is a week off from your regular routine, and tour around the land of beauty.

Number of exquisite palaces, plethora of temples, and famous Rajasthani cuisine awaits you.

Jaipur:

Capital city of Rajasthan is often termed as the ‘pink city’ because major buildings in the city were painted pink in order to welcome Prince Albert in 1876. In order to visit the tourist attractions you need to make sure that you reach the city as early as possible, because the gates of the major tourist attractions are closed by the evening. You can be relived to visit important places; you need not travel much as most of them are situated close to each other. Important destinations in Jaipur are Jantar Mantar, City Palace, Hawa Mahal, Govinddevji ka Mandir and Amer Fort.

Amongst these the Hawa Mahal is an architectural grandeur which is made of red and pink sandstones, and is highlighted with quicklime. The Hawa Mahal has a unique architectural beauty which is visible in all the five stories of the palace. The Ratan Mandir in the Mahal showcases stunning glassworks, whereas the third storey is significant because it was here that the king used to worship Lord Krishna also known as the Vichitra Mandir. The monument draws its name from the fifth storey of the Mahal, known as the Hawa Mandir which is an open roof.

Here also do visit the city palace, which is the ideal place for buying historical artifacts, sold off at the auctions. A part of this monument is still a home to the royal family. Jaipur is covered in almost all packages of India Travel, specially in Golden Triangle India Tour.

The Umaid Bhawan Palace

Pushkar:

From Jaipur, you could head towards Pushkar which is bordered by sand dunes on one side and hilly terrains on the other three sides. It is believed that the famous lake in Pushkar originated when a blossom fell from the hands of Lord Brahma.

There are approximately 50 Bathing Ghats or areas in the lake, and people in Rajasthan believe that taking a dip in the waters, especially on Kartika Poornima, will free you from all the bad karmas. The temple in Pushkar is extremely renowned for its Shiva shrine and the legendary Brahma shrine. Here you could also visit Nag Pahar, Aravali ranges, and Chishti Dargah.

Jodhpur:

You must visit Jodhpur next, and explore the Mehrangarh fort eminent for its museum and architecture. This museum showcases an array of weapons, palanquins, paintings, howdahs, and cloths.

Udaipur:

The ‘Golden Fort’ or ‘Sonar Quila’ in Udaipur derived its name from the yellow sandstones on the walls of the fort which shimmers in the sun. It is also famous because it is nearly a millennium old and houses several hundreds of villagers who reside within the fort walls. Another must see attraction is Lake Palace which is run as Luxury hotel now.

Jaisalmer:

Tour from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer, where you could tour the government museum famous for housing a variety of stuffed animals and birds, and you should not miss the gorgeous sight of the sunset which can be visible from the various sunset points in the city. If you are a food lover, then visit some of the best authentic Rajasthani restaurants found plentifully in Jaisalmer and taste their traditional vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.

Chittaurgarh:

You must also visit the Chittaurgarh Fort which is approximately 170 km away from Udaipur, and about 300 km from Jaipur. This fort is significant for the stories associated with it and is also believed to be the largest and most significant fort in the country.

This fort was initially the home to Rajput rulers, and was later captured and secluded by Emperor Akbar. It is renowned for two historical events, namely Rana Udai Singh’s escapade, and the suicide or Jauhar of Rani Padmini. Chittaur’s legendary Bhakti poet, Mirabai had , in the past, erected a temple – a shrine for Lord Krishna.

Mount Abu:

The sole hill station in the state or Mount Abu is a one stop destination for all photographers and nature lovers. Here trek to the Dilwara Jain temple which attracts several thousands of worshippers every year. The interiors of the temple highlight unique pristine beauty and consists of domes and five shrines, all decorated with beautiful carvings. Here you could also visit the wildlife sanctuary, and the artificial water body or the Nakki Lake.

Councilman Joe McElroy wants to punish all of the bars in Naperville over a couple of drunk incidents.

Two years ago, McElroy called changing bar hours “the nuclear option,” but said Monday the fatal crash in the quarry was “the last straw.” He now is calling for bars to close “an hour or two” earlier.

Bars currently must close at 1 a.m. on weekdays and 2 a.m. on weekends.

CHICAGO, July 28 (Reuters) – Chicago will set up additional shelters for unaccompanied immigrant children to be funded by the federal government and run by local charities, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said on Monday.

Increasing numbers of children, mostly from crime-plagued Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, are crossing into the United States from Mexico, and shelters near the border are strained. Some of the children are immediately flown home to Central America, but immigration authorities send most of them to temporary shelters in cities around the United States until they are placed with family members while they await deportation proceedings that can last for years.

While some cities – such as Escondido, California and Oracle, Arizona – have resisted efforts to set up temporary shelters for unaccompanied minor immigrants, officials in other cities are more welcoming. Dallas Judge Clay Jenkins has offered federal authorities empty buildings in a risky political move as he faces re-election in November.

A family dog was allegedly shot and killed in front of a 6-year-old girl by a police officer in southwest suburban Hometown Friday afternoon.

The dog’s owners said their one-year-old German Shepherd mix, named Apollo, had run out the front door of their house on the 8700 block of Beck Place around 2:20 p.m. and had returned to the front lawn when police arrived.

“I walked over and I tried to call him inside. The police officer had his gun out already,” said Nicole Echlin, one of the dog’s owners. Her 6-year-old daughter walked with her.

“He started showing his teeth — that’s when the officer shot him,” said Echlin, 27. “I didn’t know that was going to happen.”

Echlin then grabbed her daughter, who had fallen to the ground crying, and rushed her inside.

“That’s going to be in her head probably forever,” Echlin said.

Hometown police said the incident was under investigation and that information about what happened would be available on Monday.

From Chief Forsyth:
On 7/25/14 Police Dispatch received a phone call (recorded call on file) from the dog owners home that their dog a 16 month shepard/pit mix was loose and requested the Police to watch out for the dog.The Officer located the dog in the area and followed it back to its home. The Officer reports while attempting to coax the dog back into the house the dog turned, growled and approached him in a threatening manner. The Officer then withdrew his service weapon and fired one shot striking the dog. Although the Officer may have been justified under the Illinois Use of Force statute governing deadly force, I have made the decision to terminate that Officers employment with the Hometown Police Department. In addition, all reports and witness statements will be forwarded to the Illinois State Police Public Integrity Unit to be reviewed.

Owners raise questions over alleged police shooting of dog

Scialabba has created a Facebook page “Justice for Apollo” and is planning a rally outside the police department next Sunday.

The much-admired Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black may be rolling in his grave at the prospect of a merger between 21st Century Fox and Time Warner Inc., which would reduce control of the major Hollywood studios to five owners, from six, and major television producers to four, from five.

“The widest possible dissemination of information from diverse and antagonistic sources is essential to the welfare of the public,” he wrote in the majority opinion that decided a 1945 antitrust case involving major newspaper publishers and The Associated Press. “The First Amendment affords not the slightest support for the contention that a combination to restrain trade in news and views has any constitutional immunity.”

Fox and Time Warner may no longer publish old-media newspapers or magazines, but they certainly disseminate information and opinions that may be even more vital to the “welfare of the public” today than the newspapers of Justice Black’s era. HBO alone, one of Time Warner’s cable channels, produces “Real Time With Bill Maher,” “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” and acclaimed documentaries like “The Case Against 8,” about the struggle for marriage equality, and the “Paradise Lost” series, which examined the murder convictions of the group of white teenagers known as the West Memphis Three.

Slawomir Plewa

Sun, 07/27/2014 – 6:35pm Stefano Esposito AND RUMMANA HUSSAIN

A former Chicago cop caught up in a “hare-brained” scheme to plant drugs and a gun in a suburban woman’s car — a scheme that led to a $375,000 city payout — may soon get his job back.

Slawomir Plewa could be back on the streets, even though the Chicago Police Department is fighting the fired cop’s efforts in court.

Plewa’s actions “represent a serious breach of the public’s trust,” says Marty Dolan, the lawyer who sued Plewa in federal court on behalf of the suburban woman. “He violated a sworn oath to protect the public and certainly does not deserve a second chance to serve in any capacity whatsoever.”

NATO3

On February 10, the influential Chicago Tribune published a lengthy and extraordinary editorial embracing police spying, entrapment and law enforcement tactics grounded in the billy club and the agent provocateur. The paper’s beef? A jury had found three defendants innocent days earlier of bogus state terrorism charges in the NATO 3 case. The  defendants’ ‘crime’ — assembling four primitive Molotov cocktails on the eve of protests to oppose the May 2012 gathering of NATO officials in Chicago — was wholly initiated, incited and put into motion by two undercover cops, whose bosses admitted they colluded with federal authorities to create the case.

The Tribune’s op ed was stripped, for all intents and purposes, from States’ Attorney Anita Alvarez’ vitriolic defense of her political prosecution of the NATO 3. Dozens of respected activists and groups came together to rebut the Tribune’s endorsement of state-sponsored spying, entrapment and the use of undercover police agent provocateurs to wage war on dissent — a response that the Tribune has refused to publish. Instead, that full response is published here.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to open the city up to more immigrant children crossing the border illegally, with plans to open up shelters in the city to 1,000 minors by the end of the year.

Mr. Emanuel’s office also plans to launch a “broad-based pro bono campaign,” using the city’s legal resources to council young immigrants.

“The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore,” Mr. Emanuel said in a statement, the Chicago Tribune reported Saturday.

A reputed Chicago mobster allegedly tossed an elderly woman down a set of stairs three times — killing her — after he conned her into signing over her property to him, according to an informant in a racketeering case unveiled over the weekend.

Robert “Bobby” Panozzo Sr., 54, is charged with four other defendants in Cook County Criminal Court. They were allegedly part of an Outfit-connected crew that engaged in murder, drug rip-offs, insurance fraud, kidnapping and prostitution.

According to an affidavit police obtained for a search warrant of their homes, an informant said Panozzo boasted about killing an elderly woman around 1987.

They used an insurance salesman who gave them information about items on victims’ homeowner’s insurance policies, the informant said. A jeweler on Wabash Avenue in the Loop fenced their stolen jewelry and coins, the informant added.

Prices In Monaco Real Estate Top The Charts Worldwide

If you are looking for opportunities in purchasing international real estate, it won’t take you long to realize that you have embarked upon buying property in one of the world’s most expensive locations. Understanding Monaco real estate prices is an exercise of simple economic physics.

A home here on average cost $58,300 per square meter. If you are a US perspective buyer, that translates to pricing for your new resort home in ranges between $5300 per square foot to $6000 per square foot. Monaco is obviously a luxury resort location and it offers the best of the best to those who can afford it.

That said, it pays to look carefully at the market before making buying decisions. As in any market, there are variations in quality and value and nobody wants to overpay for property whether that property cost $100,000 or $50 million. You didn’t get your money by accident and you don’t want to spend it needlessly either.

Monaco Real Estate Property Ownership Implications

Although Monaco is an independent and sovereign state, it maintains close ties and governance relationships with France. Its real estate laws are complex and have undergone recent changes, especially as applies to corporate entities purchasing property both for a state and tax reasons.

It may not be necessary to purchase property via the Corporation as taxes for individual property buyers and real estate owners have been substantially reduced since 2011.

Sound legal advice from experts in international real estate law such as a company like Icon Property is advisable to anyone considering buying property in Monaco. Tax liability for real estate purchases in Monaco fall between 4.5% and 7.5% depending on the specifics of a real estate purchase. Offshore entities pay the higher rate while individual buyers pay the 4.5% rate.

Living In Monaco

The worlds second smallest country has a population density double that of San Francisco. 32,000 people are crowded into about one square kilometre or .7 square miles. Consequently, most real estate prices are in the millions – 7 to 8 figures for most apartments or condos on the market. A world-class location coupled with limited space and availability creates this demand for some of the highest priced real estate in the world. There are some bargains in this market.

One recent listing was as low as €250,000 the problem with this property is that it’s not for people. It was simply for someone to park his or her car in an owned parking garage space. More realistically, a recent listing for an apartment with three rooms total at hundred 42 m² or 1500 ft.² prices in at €6,950,000 or US $9.4 million. The good news for property owners in Monaco as there is no income tax and no property tax in this microstate. This country obtains its revenues from substantial taxes on profits from business activities including the sale of real estate.
