And then when we’ve done that we will take stock of what we need to do by the way of proving some of the formal matters, we may in other words, where they may be a dispute, we may have to bring a witness in to prove a bank account or something like that…”Mitchell also said the first witness will likely not be heard until Easter or just before; that person is identified as the principal witness and is former Governor, Richard Tauwhare

In picture: Krishna Raja Sagara Dam built on Cauvery river.IANS File Photo [Representational Image]The Cauvery Water Regulation Committee (CWRC) has asked the Karnataka government to release Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu for the next five days. The decision comes after the CRWC noted that rainfall in the Cauvery basin and inflow at the four reservoirs of Karnataka are below normal. After its 12th sitting CWRC said said it will review the situation in the next meeting, which will be held on August 8 in New Delhi.The representatives from Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Puducherry took part in the committee meeting, held in Bengaluru on Thursday.The committee said water should be released from Krishnarajasagar (KRS) and Kabini dams of Karnataka for ensuring flows at Biligundlu reservoir at Krishnagiri district in TN-Karnataka border. Having noted that the inflow has been below normal, it was decided that Karnataka will continue to release water from KRS and Kabini reservoirs for the next five days in proportion to the inflow,” read the statement by CWRC.During the meeting, Karnataka said that rainfall in the Cauvery catchment area is at a 40-year low and the state is not in a position to release water. But TN claimed that Karnataka should have released over 40 TMC of water in June and July but only 9.505 TMC was released during this time.Karnataka had to release 34 TMC of water to Tamil Nadu in July as per the Supreme Court order, even though the reservoir had poor inflow.
An image grab taken from the Hariri family-owned Lebanese channel, Future TV shows Lebanon’s resigned prime minister Saad Hariri speaking during an interview from Riyadh. AFP file photoSaad Hariri, whose resignation as Lebanon’s prime minister a week ago sent shockwaves across the region, said Sunday he is “free” in Saudi Arabia and will return to Lebanon “very soon”.In an interview from Riyadh with his party’s Future TV, Hariri brushed aside rumours that he was under de facto house arrest in the kingdom, from which he announced his surprise departure.“I am free here. If I want to travel tomorrow, I will,” Hariri said.“I will return to Lebanon very soon,” Hariri said, adding later that he would land in Beirut “in two or three days”.Hariri, 47, announced he was stepping down from his post in a televised address on November 4 from Riyadh, and has yet to return to his native Lebanon.However, Lebanese President Michel Aoun has yet to formally accept his resignation and said the premier has been “restricted” in his movements.Hariri’s surprise resignation came as tensions rise between Riyadh and Tehran, which back opposing sides in power struggles from Lebanon and Syria to Yemen.At the time, Hariri accused Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of taking over his country and destabilising the broader region.“We cannot continue in Lebanon in a situation where Iran interferes in all Arab countries, and that there’s a political faction that interferes alongside it,” he repeated on Sunday in apparent reference to rival movement Hezbollah.“Maybe there’s a regional conflict between Arab countries and Iran. We’re a small country. Why put ourselves in the middle?”‘Rescind resignation’Wearing a suit and tie and with a Lebanese flag in the background, the former premier looked tired on Sunday and spoke softly but firmly throughout the interview.Hariri, who also holds Saudi citizenship, told journalist Paula Yaacoubian that he wrote his resignation himself and wanted to submit it in Lebanon, “but there was danger”.He also appeared to lay down an exit strategy, saying he would be willing to “rescind the resignation” if intervention in regional conflicts stopped.“We need to respect the disassociation policy,” Hariri said, referring to an agreement among Lebanese political factions that they would not interfere in Syria’s six-year war.He appeared to be alluding to Hezbollah’s military intervention on behalf of the Syrian government, to which Hariri is opposed.Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said Friday that Hariri was “detained in Saudi Arabia, he is banned from returning to Lebanon”.‘Excellent’ ties with SaudiHariri has spent the past week in a string of meetings with diplomats and Saudi officials in Riyadh, including an encounter with Saudi King Salman.He left the kingdom once for a trip to Abu Dhabi.In his interview on Sunday, Hariri said he has “excellent” ties with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in an apparent effort to put to rest rumours that the Saudi crown prince had pressured him to step down.“Really, I consider him a brother and he considers me a brother. It’s an excellent and special relationship,” he said.But he refused to comment on the internal political turmoil in Saudi Arabia, where dozens of high-profile politicians and businessmen have been arrested in what authorities say is an anti-graft drive.The two-time premier’s father Rafik made his fortune in Saudi Arabia and also served as premier for years before he was assassinated in 2005.Saad cited fears for his life when he resigned from his post last week, less than a year after his unity government was formed with Hezbollah.Lebanese have expressed concern that the move could thrust the country into a political and economic tailspin, as it remains unclear who could replace Hariri.Western countries moved quickly to express their support for the premier, with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson calling him a “strong partner”.Tillerson warned against “any party, within or outside Lebanon, using Lebanon as a venue for proxy conflicts or in any manner contributing to instability in that country”.

Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals You’d think by now, with “cloud” applications, everything being “hosted” and all software being delivered as a “service” that we wouldn’t have to deal with tech guys as much as we did in the past. But we still do. That’s because most of us still need PCs, laptops and tablets. We still have routers and cabling and switches in the office. We’re still saving some stuff locally on servers and many of us still have on-premises systems, like accounting and other databases that we rely on daily and will probably continue to rely on for the foreseeable future. And so all of this needs the tech guy. You know who this is, right?He’s as old as your own kid. He’s a hipster. He last showered when Windows 7 was released. He has a goatee, and probably a pony tail. He’s rushed, frazzled and impatient. He fixes one thing and ten other things break. He drinks coffee or Red Bulls. He’s not unfriendly. But he’s definitely not a salesman. You pay him by the hour or maybe you have a monthly contract with him. You need him. He makes sure your systems keep running so your business can keep running.There are at least three important things you need to know about this guy:1. Not all tech guys were created equal. Most tech guys think their clients are idiots when it comes to tech. But rest assured, there are plenty of other tech guys who likely think the same about your tech guy. And they’re probably right. In the corporate world there are tech guys who deal with very complex security, data, application and connectivity issues. They come with respectable academic pedigrees and work for years in the bowels of giants like Oracle, SAP and Google.Your tech guy is likely not one of these guys. Otherwise, he’d be working there. The barrier to enter the world if independent IT consulting is almost non-existent. Any clown who’s tinkered with a computer can do it. And maybe your tech guy did work at Oracle. But that may not qualify him to be a tech guy. Because tech, like any other industry, has many sub-specialties. I know plenty of competent C# programmers who know nothing about configuring a network. I know lots of SQL database experts who can’t even setup a printer. Make sure you understand your tech guy’s qualifications.2. Don’t take their word for it. Lots of tech guys like to make their clients feel like nincompoops. They toss around unrecognizable words and give you withering looks when you ask simple questions. Men (most tech guys are men because it is one of the last places left in the world where we feel we can control things) like to pretend we know stuff when we really don’t. That’s why we hate to ask for directions and get help. Tech guys pretend they know the answers. But don’t believe every answer they give you. Trust your own common sense. Before spending a lot of money on a new project, get some other tech guys in to give you their second opinions. Don’t be afraid to question. You’re not as stupid as you’re being made to think. Technology is an art, not a science. If it were truly a science, most tech guys wouldn’t be smart enough to do it.3. Get used to stuff breaking. Your tech guy is likely a Microsoft person. That means he’s used to stuff not working all the time and he accepts this. You should too — to a degree. Often tech guys throw out fixes like a baby throws food — hoping it sticks to the wall. Don’t ask silly questions like “Why did this happen?” Instead ask “If it is God’s will that this problem occurs again, how do I reach you?”This is not entirely the fault of the tech person. There is a part of technology that cannot be explained, perhaps for the same reason no one can explain why Duck Dynasty is such a popular show. It is like dark matter. So you let it go. Tech guys are used to dealing with an imperfect world. You will have to accept this. But don’t let that hold you back from asking the questions you need to get yourself comfortable. If the issue is important enough, don’t let him walk out the door until you get your questions satisfactorily answered. And make sure you know where to reach him when the problem inevitably re-occurs.Just remember, your tech guy may be halfway decent at technology. But he’s not a great businessman. Treat him fairly, but be tough. And don’t let him off the hook. Some tech issues are not worth fighting. But others are important, so push for the answers you need. If a tech issue seems strange to you, that’s because it’s probably strange. You’re not stupid, so get your answers before he leaves. Otherwise you’ll quickly be out-of -ight and out-of-mind, and he’ll be on to disrupting the next small business owner. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
