tank with close ties to labor unions comes as the debate enters a particularly fierce new phase On 17 April a bipartisan group of eight US senators unveiled a sweeping proposal to overhaul the nation’s immigration policies Its proposals to create a path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants already living in the United States and to boost border security have gotten the most attention But firefights are also breaking out over provisions that would boost the number of temporary workers that high-tech companies can hire and make it easier for foreign students who earn advanced STEM degrees from US universities to permanently remain in the country In particular the proposal calls for increasing the number of temporary H1-B visas for skilled workers—which last up to 6 years —from 65000 to 110000; the cap could ultimately rise to 180000 depending on economic conditions The legislation also boosts from 20000 to 25000 the number of additional H1-Bs available to foreign students who earn advanced degrees in STEM fields from US schools colleges and universities (but not including in the life sciences which are considered to have an oversupply of workers) The bill would also increase the proportion of permanent "employment" visas reserved for more educated applicants They could receive 40% of the 140000 visas issued annually up from 286% now Foreign-born students who earn a master’s degree or higher in a STEM field from a US institution in the preceding 5 years would automatically qualify—an approach popularly known as "stapling a green card to their diploma" The Senate bill would also create 120000 new "merit-based" visas to be awarded via a scoring system One-half would be reserved for skilled workers who would earn points for holding advanced degrees or starting businesses The number of merit visas could grow to 250000 over time An additional 10000 green cards would go to entrepreneurs who raise $500000 in capital or generate $750000 in US sales and employ at least five people Taken together these provisions would attract more immigrants with STEM skills the bill’s backers argue Now about 75% of the some 1 million people a year who win the legal right to permanently live and work in the United States do so as a result of family ties Fewer than 15% receive green cards based on their education or skills The bill aims to move that ratio to about 50-50 within several decades Although today’s report doesn’t address that long-term goal it does question the need for more foreign STEM talent especially temporary H1-B workers US colleges and universities already produce more STEM graduates than can find jobs in technical fields it argues And a steady flow of H1-B workers appears to correlate with stagnating wages in some STEM fields especially in information technology Those flat salaries in turn appear to discourage domestic students from entering fields such as computer science the authors conclude Claims that the United States needs a larger influx of foreign STEM workers have become "a self-fulfilling prophecy" says EPI Vice President Ross Eisenbrey "When wages are growing [we] saw a healthy increase in US [STEM] students going into these fields When wages are falling they didn’t … [If you] discourage good US students from going into these programs until finally you’ve killed the US supply that’s not much different from moving these jobs offshore" That wage spiral could worsen in some fields if Congress makes it easier for foreign students who earn advanced STEM degrees to remain in the United States the scholars suggest It also could create incentives for schools to recruit more foreign students as a way to pay the bills says co-author Hal Salzman a sociologist at Rutgers University in New Brunswick New Jersey He worries that the provision could become a way for universities "to make money … and just flood the [job] market" with foreign-born STEM applicants Such views—and the data underlying them—are sure to be contested by university officials high-tech industry executives and other players in the immigration debate The Senate held hearings earlier this week on the so-called Gang of Eight’s proposal and supporters are hoping for a final vote this summer Members of the US House of Representatives meanwhile are framing their own immigration proposals that focus on specific issues like border security or high-skills workers Whether any of the plans will ultimately become law is far from clear A controversial fishery in one of the world’s most remote oceans has been certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) Environmental groups and some scientists had objected to the certification claiming that not enough is known about the Ross Sea toothfish Fishing vessels have been catching Antarctic toothfish (Dissostichus mawsoni) in the Ross Sea since 1996 operating under the regulations of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources In 2007 several companies applied to MSC for an eco-label which would help them sell their fish for a premium MSC doesn’t evaluate fisheries itself but sets the overall standards for sustainability Certification companies such as Moody Marine check out the fisheries to see if they make the grade In November 2009 Moody decided that the Ross Sea toothfish deserved the MSC label Backed by a group of ecologists and biologists a set of environmental groups called the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC) objected They argued that key aspects of toothfish biology—such as where the fish spawn—weren’t well enough known to guarantee that the fishing is sustainable MSC brought in an independent adjudicator to investigate the objections He found several problems with the way that Moody had evaluated the fishery but in his final decision released in early October he declined to decide whether the label was justified Instead he asked Moody to weigh his comments and make up its own mind—an unusual move that left ASOC "dismayed" (PDF) Moody then decided that its certification was still valid MSC says the process was rigorous "Management of this fishery follows precautionary and ecosystem-based principles" MSC Deputy Chief Executive Chris Ninnes said in a statement He cited strict regulations annual stock assessments and other factors as reasons why the certification was justified Despite the fact that the fish will have a sustainability label ASOC is asking consumers not to buy them At least one grocery chain has said it won’t offer the fish By: IANS | New Delhi | Published: July 27 2017 6:22 pm “The Indian diaspora has influenced worldwide fashion making borders just a little bit thinner in the world of fashion” said Dongre (Source: File Photo) Top News Designer Anita Dongre has helped put India on the global map And the woman whose creation Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton picked for an outing and who has unveiled two stores in New York says the Indian diaspora has influenced fashion across the world “The Indian diaspora has influenced worldwide fashion making borders just a little bit thinner in the world of fashion” said Dongre About her foray into New York she said: “We wanted to reach out to our overseas consumers The US has a lot of young women who buy from us online or when they visit India When we thought of having a presence overseas SoHo in New York was an obvious choice” Dongre told IANS How different are those pieces from the ones available in India “The Grassroot collection that is available in every store and online will be the same” said the designer whose Bollywood clients include actresses like Kareena Kapoor Khan and Dia Mirza And what about Hollywood films “I have always maintained that I am a designer and love designing clothes I enjoy seeing how stylists work magic with my design but that is an entirely different skill-set I would love to see Hollywood wear my designs” she said Dongre who takes the fashion week’s audience to Rajasthan through her collections is all geared up to showcase her latest work at the India Couture Week here on Saturday “Rajasthan is the backdrop to some of my most cherished memories It’s the place I go back to season after season to draw joy colour and grandeur from — everything that is so intrinsic to a bride’s special day” she said “Every season the state inspires my designs with its rich heritage culture and crafts The last collection ‘Alchemy’ was inspired by the wildlife of Ranthambore against the glistening sands of the desert state” she added This time her collection is a tribute to the Bishnoi tribe of Rajasthan “The Bishnoi tribe is most recognised for Amrita Devi and her village’s sacrifices to save the ‘khejri’ trees in the region It’s this dedication and identification with nature that inspired me to both design this collection and plant a forest of 25000 trees in the Bassi Wildlife Sanctuary in Rajasthan” she said “The motifs and ‘gota pati’ embroidery beautifully translate the essence of the ‘khejri’ onto silks Deep hues of maroon ink blue and olive green accented with our signature red fuchsia and royal blue highlight the collection” she added What is particularly special about this collection she said is that it is ethereal and light at the same time — much like the strong women of the Bishnoi community “It is this sense of strength and beauty that attendees will get a taste of on July 29th” she promised Any showstopper for the upcoming show “Our clothes and the craftsmenship have always been the showstopper at any of our shows” she said In fact craft has always been the “hero” of what she does “I have an entire brand that celebrates learning from craftspeople — the simplicity of their lives the beauty in their crafts and their dedication to technique” said the designer who launched the House of Anita Dongre in 1995 The fashion house comprises
