DMK president M.K. Stalin, who will be sworn-in as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu on Friday, has called upon partymen to watch the ceremony on television channels from their homes, as the pandemic caused by COVID-19 has prevented his organising a public event.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) warned Thursday extreme weather events caused by global warming pose a dire threat to maternal health in the U.S. especially for “women of color.” “Climate impacts are expected to be more extreme again this year and threaten to worsen the maternal health crisis in the US,” writes Skye Wheeler of HRW’s Women’s Rights Division. “That crisis is marked by unjust inequities in maternal mortality, illness, and premature birth,” Wheeler asserts, “with worse rates for Black, Indigenous, and other women of color than white women, and for women living in poverty compared to the better-off.” Because of the climate crisis, Mother’s Day “heralds hotter summers with more and longer heat waves, worsening North Atlantic hurricane season, and terrifying wildfires in the months ahead,” she declares.
