Many of the pronouncements and actions taken by the leaders lacked specifics or details on follow-through, leaders were bold in pronouncing the gathering—the third G-20 summit in a year—as a big success. "There was unanimity around the table that the errors of the past won't happen again," said French President Nicolas Sarkozy. "The old system of international economic cooperation is over. The new system, as of today, has begun," said British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, referring to a decision to enhance the status for the Group of 20 to make it the lead group for dealing with future international economic issues, eclipsing the older, Western-dominated Group of Eight. "I have the impression that we are on a successful path," said German Chancellor Angela Merkel, before leaving Pittsburgh to fly back to Berlin, where she faces German voters on Sunday. They moved to require members to subject their economic policies to the scrutiny of a peer review process that would determine whether they were "collectively consistent" with sustainable global growth. They promised tighter and more coordinated financial regulation. And, repeating pledges from G-20 summits in November and April, when financial panic was rampant, they vowed anew to "reject protectionism in all its forms." They also went along with Obama's push for a pledge to withdraw government subsidies from fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas linked to global warming. While issuing lofty vows, the leaders failed to define how to accomplish many of them and were quickly back to bickering over details. They did not suggest, for instance, how the peer review process would be enforced. And they failed to mention that previous pledges to avoid protectionism had been ignored by nearly all 20 members. Obama brushed off demonstrations in the city. He said they were mild compared with some in the past at international gatherings. "I fundamentally disagree with their view that the free market is the source of all ills," he said. "Many of the protests are just directed generically at capitalism. ... One of the great things about the United States is you can speak your mind."

Why does a salad cost more than a Big Mac? Part of the reason is that a huge proportion of our food subsidies go to meat while only 0.37 percent go to fruits and vegetables. Good job, government. Also, guys, please watch Food, Inc. and send Kevin an reply with what you thought.

The California Supreme Court has upheld a state law allowing undocumented students to qualify for in-state tuition at state colleges and universities. The law stipulates that any student -- legally or illegally in the United States -- who attends a California high school for at least three years and graduates from it can receive the tuition break of about $23,000. A correspondent for Fox News explains the case. “About five years ago, some out of state students here in California, who were attending the University of California, sued, claiming that this subsidy was discriminatory and illegal. ... They said that under 1996 federal immigration reform law, Congress said, if states offer this tuition break to illegals, they have to give it to citizens. In the case of California and other states they didn’t do that.” But defendants in the case argued the law doesn’t conflict with federal policy on two major points. First, they insisted in-state tuition is not a “benefit,” which is the word specifically used in the 1996 federal reform law. Second, they said the tuition break isn’t based on “residency,” also mentioned in the federal law, but on the high school attendance and graduation criteria -- and the California Justices agreed. (Video: KTXL) The website Inside Higher Ed quotes a lawyer who disagrees with the court’s decision -- and questions their motives. “This ruling almost suggests that, if you’ve successfully evaded a law, then you’ve evaded it … It’s illogical to think that Congress passed this statute to make it easy for a state to evade enforcement. … The court came into this case saying, ‘Let’s find a way to uphold the California statute’ from the start.” Yet even as the decision is being touted as a win for undocumented students in the United States, a writer for the non-profit California Watch says it still isn’t enough. “[W]ithout authorization to work in the U.S., young college graduates will have a hard time using their college qualifications to get a job that matches their skill level – if they can find a job at all.” And a writer for the Examiner points out a quote - ”cruel irony” to the ruling. “...tuition is being increased to record levels. ... Such general increases will place even more students, documented and undocumented, in jeopardy of losing access to public higher education.” A USC publication reports 70 percent of the students covered under the controversial law are either U.S. citizens or documented immigrants -- implying 30 percent may not be legal. But the LA Times says just 1 percent of California’s overall university population qualifies for it. The case is expected to go to the U.S. Supreme Court, whose ruling could affect similar laws in nine other U.S. states.

This week on the Financial Sense Newshour, Jim Puplava is pleased to welcome Mitchell Dong, an alternative energy entrepreneur who is spearheading the massive Mohave Sun solar project in northern Arizona, which will provide electricity to Las Vegas. Mr. Dong sees solar as a clean energy alternative with great upside potential, which he believes will become more economic over the next decade. He believes solar will still need subsidies until the technology improves in the next 10 years, making it much more cost-competitive.

BY TRACY PFEIFFER Anchor: Megan Murphy You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy A historic turn in the Balkans -- officials from Serbia and Kosovo met for face-to-face talks for the first time since the Kosovo declared its independence from the United Nations in 2008. “The EU is mediating the negotiations as relations between the two countries remain tense, with Serbia denying Kosovo sovereignty. For that reason, the focus will be more on day-to-day issues like trade and air traffic.” (RT) Analysts argue, these seemingly innocuous issues are direct results of Serbia’s refusal to recognize Kosovo’s independence -- and are causing problems on the ground. The Irish Times points out -- Serbia does not allow vehicles registered in Kosovo. Al Jazeera reports, the contested nation cannot get its own telephone country code. And the Financial Times says, Serbia refuses to accept Kosovar customs stamps -- meaning Kosovar manufacturers cannot ship goods through Serbia. The Balkans has a long history of ethnic strife. The eventual disintegration of Yugoslavia in the 1990s fueled the tension, resulting in a deadly conflict between Serbia and Kosovo over the question of Kosovar sovereignty. NATO military forces intervened in the late ‘90s, and Kosovo was put under control of the UN until it declared independence in 2008. (Video: euronews) But despite the historical bad blood, representatives from both Balkan states had nothing but optimism for the media prior to the negotiations. BORKO STEFANOVIC, SERBIAN HEAD NEGOTIATOR: “There will be tough issues and easier ones, but of course we have high hopes and we expect that this dialogue will give fast and rapid implementations of solutions that we will find together in this process.” EDITA TAHIRI, KOSOVO DEPUTY PM: “We are coming with positive spirit and with constructive approach. There is a lot of things on the agenda in terms of practical issues.” (CCTV) So why come to the table now? A writer for the UK’s The Independent says, Serbia is eyeing European Union membership -- something it can only get by mending ties with Kosovo. But the writer also notes, the latter has reasons to cooperate as well. “Unlike Serbia, it is in no position to dream of EU membership. But it is dependent on EU subsidies and with its right to statehood contested around the world, Kosovo needs to maintain the diplomatic goodwill of both Europe and the US, whose military was decisive in securing its independence.” But an article from European Voice argues, it’s not the Balkan states under pressure here -- it’s the EU itself. The writer says, the international body needs to get serious about the talks, rather than sidestepping the big issue. “...any dialogue focused solely on technical issues and with no clear perspective on the north's political future will do little more than affirm and legitimate the Serbia-run parallel structures in the north. Given Pristina's adamant opposition to Belgrade's control of the north, the prospects of a frozen conflict would then only increase.” Currently, Kosovo is considered partially-recognized, with some 75 UN countries recognizing its independence.

Siddipet is a small city and a municipality in Medak district, Andhra Pradesh, India. It is the biggest town in the Medak district and is 104 KM away from Hyderabad capital city of AP and 86 KM away from Secunderabad identified with Hyderabad as twin city. Siddipet is well connected with road. Siddipet is well known for its handloom products. The weavers demand a responsible role by the government to protect the handloom industry by providing subsidy for yarn and a rehabilitation package for the weavers who have suffered due to the rains. They hope that if the government takes the responsibility to support the handloom industry by way of showcasing and marketing the handloom products, then only the industry can survive or else the present situation is leading to the end of handloom industry in Siddipet. The new generation is also not interested in the profession due to the hard labour and long hours spend to bring out the finished product, but the returns are not lucrative to make them stay in the profession.

BY PAUL ROLFE ANCHOR MEGAN MURPHY You're watching multisource environment video news analysis from Newsy. Prince Charles made a trip to the U.S. for the first time since 2007. He came to D.C. for three days -- fresh from his son’s wedding -- to discuss sustainable agriculture. On Wednesday, he met with President Obama and spoke during a conference at Georgetown University. The Prince of Wales said it’s a departure from his routine from the past few weeks. Prince Charles: “It certainly makes a change from making embarrassing speeches about my eldest son during wedding receptions and things like that.” Reporter: “And then the serious stuff. The prince spoke about food production, making the case for sustainable farming and denouncing what he sees as the modern evils of pesticides and chemicals.” (BBC) After his Georgetown speech, he visited urban farms, chefs, and then the White House. Prince Charles praised the First Lady’s efforts to reduce childhood obesity. The Guardian reports he also criticized the billions of dollars of subsidies the U.S. gives out for large-scale agriculture. “Could there be benefits if public finance were redirected so that subsides are linked specifically to farming practices that are more sustainable, less polluting, and of wide benefit to the public interest?” The prince has been an active supporter of sustainability for 30 years. The New York Times Green blog points out personal actions he’s been taking. “The Prince of Wales has adopted sustainable and organic farming methods on some royal lands that he manages, although it is less clear that he has turned a profit doing so ... he promoted organic farming methods in a documentary, ‘Harmony,’ that was broadcast last year in Britain and the United States.” An Irish-born filmmaker, Phelim McAleer isn’t buyin’ what Prince Charles is sellin’. Here’s a quick peak of his short two-minute film entitled “Prince Charles - Hypocrite”. subtitled: “He also condemns consumerism saying our ‘age of convenience’ is over and that we have just six years to save the planet ... But Prince Charles does not want to end his ‘age of convenience’.” (YouTube / noteveiljustwrong) A writer for The Independent liked the video -- saying it did a good job of humbling the prince. “...it’s always fun to see the rich, famous, and mollycoddled ruling class being brought down a peg or two. So for that, we give thanks.” President Obama and Prince Charles also discussed their alliance in Afghanistan and Libya as well as the royal wedding. Later in May, Mr. and Mrs. Obama will be making a state visit to the United Kingdom. Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos for updates in your feed.
