How MS Dhoni Once Almost Became Mumbai Indians' Captain In Indian Premier League

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, one of the most successful Indian captains ever, is also the most successful captain in IPL history. Dhoni has captained his side 8 times to the finals with 3 IPL trophies to his name with a win rate of 59.94%. While on the other side, the most successful IPL franchise ever - Mumbai Indians. MI have 5 IPL trophies, and 6 IPL final appearances with a win rate of 58.93 %. Just imagine - what could have happened if Dhoni led Mumbai Indians in the IPL? This may come as a shock to some, but this actually nearly happened! Flashback to the 1st IPL auction ever - in 2008. After India had won the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, the T20 format seemed lucrative as it was popular amongst fans. To bank on this popularity, the Indian Premier League was started by BCCI in India. However, as this was the first season of IPL, a lot of guidelines and rules were placed as precautionary measures. One of the rules was that the most famous Indian players had to be 'Icon players' and represent their home franchise. The teams had an option of picking these players directly even before the auction. Due to this rule, Virender Shewag played for Delhi, Sourav Ganguly played for Kolkata, Yuvraj Singh played for Punjab, Rahul Dravid played for Bangalore and Sachin had to play for Mumbai. Famous players playing for their home teams would easily help the league gain local popularity and some of the franchises banked on it. However, there was a slight problem with this. The services of an icon player came with a fixed price tag - of 1.65 million. Given by the previous history, even without this mandatory price tag, Mumbai Indians would have gone all out to acquire Sachin Tendulkar. In a video by Cricket Raaz on Youtube, we are reminded of this information. Apart from this 'icon player' price tag, there wasanother limitation. Each team was allowed a fixed purse amount of 5 million to spend on acquiring the players and building their team. With Sachin's price of 1.65 million, Mumbai Indians' purse was already depleted by almost 33% of the entire budget - for just buying one player. The rest of the team now had to be bought with only 3.35 million. Coming back to MS Dhoni, the wicket-keeper batter hails from Ranchi, Jharkhand, didn't have a home team in the IPL and hence wasn't given the status of an icon player. MS Dhoni was red hot in the market as he had just led team India to the T20 World Cup in 2007, and each and every time placed their bidfor him in the IPL auction. Mumbai Indians were clear in their words that MS Dhoni is the one player they wanted the most in their team after Sachin Tendulkar. MI were ready to go all out to buy MS Dhoni, as much as their purse limit allowed, if only Chennai Super Kings would have allowed this! Chennai Super Kings, the team of the state of Tamil Nadu, didn't have any outright icon players. Wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik was hoping to become the icon player for CSK, but was rejected for not having 'enough star attraction'. On the day of the auction, Mumbai Indians had a purse of 3.35 million dollars, with which they had to go head-to-head for MS Dhoni against Chennai, who had an untouched purse of 5 million. As one may speculate, MI failed to match CSK's bid for MS Dhoni. Captain Cool was bought by Chennai for 1.5 million, the most expensive player in the first IPL auction ever. If we look back, this was the moment that set the foundation of the most fierce rivalry in the IPL - Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings. Funnily enough, IPL had to change their rule the very next year due to repetitive complaints of lack of funds by the IPL franchises, and the purse limit was increased by 2 million. Also Read: Scorecard No one can imagine what could have been had MS Dhoni captained Mumbai Indians, and couldn't do so because of a single rule which was just changed a year later. Nevertheless, the contests between MS Dhoni's Chennai and Mumbai Indians is always the most watched match in the IPL, and this happened only because Ambani-owned Mumbai Indians didn't have 'enough budget' to acquire the Captain Cool. .embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }

Financial results included those of Dialog Axiata PLC (the Company) and of the Dialog Axiata Group (the Group). Sri Lanka continued to be battered by the socio-economic crisis in Q2 2022 which led to adverse movements in macro variables such as Sri Lankan Rupee (LKR) depreciating 23% against the United States Dollar (USD), Inflation rising to 54.6% (from 18.7% recorded by end Q1 2022), policy rates increasing by 8 percentage points and 12-month T-Bill rate increasing to 21% (from 12% recorded by end Q1 2022). Despite the challenging environment witnessed in Q2 2022, the Group sustained its consistent performance to record strong Revenue growth across all business segments, namely, Mobile, Fixed Line, Digital Pay Television, International and Tele-infrastructure, relative to prior periods, namely, Year-to- Date (YTD) and Quarter-on-Quarter (QoQ). Accordingly, the Group recorded consolidated Revenue of Rs.81.6Bn for 1H 2022 and Rs43.3Bn for Q2 2022. However, driven by higher network spend and escalation in the cost base, Group Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortisation (EBITDA) declined to Rs27.5Bn for 1H 2022 down by a moderate 1% YTD. On a QoQ basis EBITDA declined 14% to record Rs12.7Bn for Q2 2022. The Group Net Profit After Tax (NPAT) was impacted by the forex losses amid continued depreciation of the Sri Lankan Rupee (LKR) against the United States Dollar (USD). The resulting forex losses reached Rs.14.2Bn for Q2 2022 and Rs.34.3Bn for 1H 2022. The forex losses were predominantly contributed by market-to-market translational losses from USD denominated borrowings. Group NPAT recorded a loss of Rs28.3Bn for 1H 2022 and a loss of Rs12.5Bn for Q2 2022 amid forex losses. Normalised for the said forex losses, NPAT continued to decline albeit recording profits of Rs6.0Bn for 1H 2022 and Rs1.6Bn for Q2 2022. Dialog Group continued to be a significant contributor to state revenues, remitting a total of Rs16.9Bn to the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) during the first six months of 2022. Total remittances included Direct Taxes and Levies amounting to Rs9.2Bn and Rs7.7Bn in Consumption Taxes collected on behalf of the GoSL. The total taxes paid increased 46% YTD and 56% QoQ. The Direct Taxes included Rs3.8Bn paid during the quarter in lieu of one-off Surcharge Tax of 25% applicable on PAT of FY2020. The Group continued to support critical investments in 1H 2022 to provide seamless and consistent connectivity whilst meeting the surge in data demand. Accordingly, the Capital expenditure reached Rs22.4Bn for 1H 2022. Capital expenditure was directed towards investments in High-Speed Broadband infrastructure to further expand Dialogs leadership in Sri Lankas Broadband sector. In line with the above Capex, the Group Operating Free Cash Flow (OFCF) declined to Rs2.8Bn for 1H 2022. During the quarter the Dialog Group entered into loan agreement of up to USD150Mn with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) that is expected to help expand and improve the network capacity through the upgrading of existing sites and the deployment of new 4G sites. IFC will also ensure that Dialog adopts an enhanced environmental and social management system (ESMS) according to IFC Performance Standards for their mobile network deployment, in line with Dialogs endeavors of pursuing green connectivity, supporting global climate action goals and achieving net-zero CO2 emission by 2050. The quarter also marked Dialog earning the distinction of being recognized as Sri Lankas Most Valuable Brand for the fourth consecutive year by Brand Finance with a brand value of Rs54.0Bn. Dialog also retained its brand rating of AAA for the third consecutive year, as well as the title of Most Valuable Telecommunications Brand for the 15th consecutive year reaffirming the brands ethos of empowering and enriching Sri Lankan lives and enterprises. In a mission to provide emergency relief to the worst impacted families and communities in the country due to the ongoing economic crisis, Dialog Group together with like-minded corporates and partners launched the Manudam Mehewara relief initiative in April 2022. As of date, this initiative has supported over 102,000 families in need with emergency relief and will continue in coming months with a target to support a total of 200,000 families across all 25 districts. Being the most valuable Brand and ranked #1 amongst most respected entities for CSR/Sustainability in 2022, Dialog prides in championing ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) in the country. The Board and Management of Dialog Group are committed to achieving NetZero CO2 emission by 2050 and as a first step aims to achieve Net Neutral by 2030. Accordingly, Dialog has adopted industry specific ESG performance reporting based on Sustainable Accounting Standard Board (SASB) and GSMA frameworks and resulting KPIs will be published along with the quarterly financial results going forward. At an entity level, Dialog Axiata PLC (the Company) continued to contribute a major share of Group Revenue (60%) and Group EBITDA (69%). Company revenue was recorded at Rs49.1Bn for 1H 2022 up 11% YTD and Rs25.1Bn for Q2 2022 up 4% QoQ, resulting from growth in Data segment. Profitability continued to be impacted due to higher network spend and rise in operating expenses resulting from LKR depreciation against the USD as alluded to earlier. Accordingly, Company EBITDA was recorded at Rs19.0Bn for 1H 2022 down 5% and Rs9.0Bn for Q2 2022 down 11%. Downstream of EBITDA performance, Company NPAT recorded a loss of Rs25.9Bn for 1H 2022 and Rs10.7Bn for Q2 2022. Normalised for forex losses NPAT was recorded at Rs4.6Bn for 1H 2022 and Rs1.5Bn for Q2 2022. Dialog Television (DTV), continued to consolidate its leadership position in the Digital Pay Television space with a subscriber growth of 6% YoY to exceed 1.7Mn homes by end June 2022. Driven by strong uptake in prepaid segment, DTV revenue was recorded at Rs5.6Bn for 1H 2022 albeit on a QoQ basis revenue declined 2% to reach Rs2.8Bn for Q2 2022. DTV EBITDA declined 24% to reach Rs1.1Bn for 1H 2022 due to escalation in cost base stemming from unfavorable forex movement. Consequently, DTV Net Loss increased to Rs2.9Bn in 1H 2022. Dialog Broadband Networks (DBN) featuring the Groups Fixed Telecommunications, Broadband and International Businesses recorded strong revenue growth of 42% YTD to reach Rs28.8Bn for 1H 2022 and Rs16.2Bn for Q2 2022, due to growth in wholesale revenue coupled with Fixed Broadband revenue. Following the revenue performance, DBN EBITDA increased to reach Rs7.4Bn for 1H 2022 while Net Profit reached Rs1.3Bn for 1H 2022.

I wanted my children to grow up here: how Airbnb is ruining local communities in north Wales

Families in Gwynedd county are being evicted as swathes of property are converted to short-term rentals for the tourism industry and the situation being played out across the country. Can anything be done to help? Sitting at her kitchen table, a shellshocked Cherylyn Houston reflects on an ordeal that is finally over. It all started in September 2021. Houston, a 42-year-old secondary school teacher, opened the door to find her landlady on her doorstep. She said: Im really sorry. My circumstances have changed and I need to give you six months notice. I can get four times as much money on Airbnb and Id like you to leave, ideally by March, so I can start the new season. At the time, Houston was living in a four-bedroom cottage in the village of Dinorwig, in the county of Gwynedd, north Wales. Houston, her two teenage children and their stepfather had lived there since January 2020 and never been late on their 800-a-month rent. She pulls out her phone. Christmas was heaven, she sighs, pausing on an image of the spacious kitchen with a flagstone floor and log-burning stove. Youd just snuggle down and close the curtains. Continue reading...

Car totaled 3 months ago, insurance settlement pending: Best approach?

BHPian handsofsteel recently shared this with other enthusiasts. Dear all, In an unfortunate turn of events, my car was totalled three months back. This has happened out of state with the vehicle now parked in the nearest svc. I raised an insurance claim with the company within the stipulated claim period. The company launched an investigation which ruled out any foul play. This took about a month. Since then, the following has been informed to me:An internal debate within the firm regarding repairability vs total loss (SVC declared it a total loss same time).Assessment of damage by the insurance company - took nearly 1.5 months.Floating of tender for a scrap quote. I was initially informed that one quote has been obtained (against the minimum two required) and now, in an about turn, they say nothing has come.I have been strung along with contradictory inputs all this while without any concrete inputs regarding the progress of the case. The company-provided app for monitoring the claim status is useless. Finally, I managed to get a number of the circle head who assured me last month that the claim would now be settled in 15 days. Three weeks later, he tells me that scrap dealers are not quoting for the car and therefore there's a delay. The only alternative/worst-case scenario as per him is to get my car de-registered (I assume it's a lengthy process as it is out of state). They are, therefore, asking me to give them more time to obtain the salvage quote.Is this correct or are they stringing me along? If yes, for what?Is de registering the car my headache? If so, what after that?What are my obligations regarding the svc where the car is parked? (I have started getting calls for an interim payment for parking/estimate preparation charges)It's been 3 months and a week thus far. I have spent the whole summer without a car and the prospect of getting through the monsoon without one doesn't cheer me up. Considering that I am now getting some inputs (correct or otherwise) from the firm, I am inclined to hold on a little longer before going all out on social media/ombudsman/IRDAI etc to name and shame the company. I would be really grateful for some specialist opinion from someone knowledgeable. Thanks in advance. Here's what BHPian speed79 had to say on the matter:I am in the same boat as my car (2015 Safari Storme) got totalled in a road accident in mid-April. Since I was injured in an accident with a fracture in my right hand, I could not pick up my car from the accident spot as local police (AP) did not let my friends and demanded that either I or my father should come and take the car, and car lied there for 5 days, during which time different parts from the car were plundered. Once I was out of the hospital, my father went 200 km in a taxi and got the car towed to the Tata Service centre in Bangalore. The towing charges were my cost. I chose the SVC which had a cashless claim with the National Insurance company (as I was hopeful of getting my car repaired as I loved it so much) as the process becomes smoother. The car was declared a Total loss by the insurance company. Once the insurance company decided on a total loss, and I agreed (I was devastated once I saw some parts plundered from my car), they took my authorization to put an advert in the newspaper for salvage auction. They got 4 quotes and the highest bidder has been selected. I was asked by the insurance company to get it de-registered at RTO, so that car can be sold as salvage. The RC cancellation is my responsibility. I went to RTO and applied for RC cancellation on May 9. The agents asked a huge amount to get RC cancelled, so I went on my own for the RC cancellation process. It has been about 6 weeks and I hope to get it completed this week. Once RC cancellation is completed, the salvage buyer would take the car away. The car is currently parked at my home as I was advised by SVC and the insurance company to take the car home after repair estimation, as I would be charged RS 350 + GST per day as parking charges. So I had paid parking charges for the days' car was at SVC + estimation charges. I hope this information is useful. If you need more details on the RC cancellation process, let me know.Here's what BHPian Sran had to say on the matter:Have you visited the insurance company's office yet? Go there, talk to the manager. Telephonic conversation can only get you so far. Do it at the earliest because the service centre will take a hefty per day charge. If there is a problem due to it being in another state, get the car towed to your place. De-registering is your work. You will get a refund from RTO for the remaining years left. I am not sure about the timing i.e. when to initiate it, you can read various threads about it. All I know is you have to be stubborn. Some 5 years back, I had to barge into an insurance company's office and had to impolitely speak to a manager for my friend's stolen car settlement which was languishing for 3 years. They paid within a month. Good luck.Here's what BHPian thanixravindran had to say on the matter:Sorry for your loss and great that you are safe. On the insurance part, your insurer is buying time to sell the car 'as is' to reduce his payout. This is the reason he is yet to give you a scrap report and ask you to deregister to sell as scrap. He is hopeful of finding a buyer who can repair and sell it. This is the reason he won't provide a total loss report (not possible to be repaired to be road worthy) but use it as a constructive total loss case (repairable to be road worthy but not financially viable). In that case, you will have to sign a car transfer ownership form, will get money from the buyer and the insurer will pay the balance of IDV. In an ideal scenario, insurance has just to just settle the claim with you and take over the totalled car and they can do whatever they can but this is India and they play all these games. Unfortunate but true. My suggestion - If you decide to fight, please take a look at your insurance document and find the Irdai plan registration number as all insurance plans need to be submitted to Irdai. Take the section on claim processing and scrap/salvage process whether it belongs to you or the company. Send a printout of it along with your claim number in a registered post asking to settle the claim within 14 days beyond which you can proceed legally to the ombudsman to recover your money. If you want to avoid confrontation, explore cash loss settlement with an insurer, say around 80% of IDV and settle with insurance. If they settle, the totalled car is yours. Work with your SVC and sell it off or deregister and sell it to scrap. They will help you as they will also benefit and have contacts with scrappers. Finally, I am not an insurance specialist but naming the insurance company is not going to adversely impact your claim anyway.Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.

OPINION | How timely action by Yogi brought a small-time politician to his knees

The arrest of a small-time politician from Noida, Shrikant Tyagi by a special task force of UP Police from Meerut after a nationwide outrage, shows the clout that people with money, political and muscle power wield in almost every city of India. Six policemen, including the SHO of the local police station, were suspended for dereliction of duty, after a video of Tyagi abusing and manhandling a female resident became viral on social media, and Noida police along with Noida Authority swung into action. Tyagi had been absconding since August 5, after police filed a molestation case against him. He was booked under Section 354 (outraging modesty of woman and assault), and on Saturday, more sections were added to the FIR by police. Section 447 (criminal trespass), section 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), section 504 (intentional insult with intent to breach peace) and section 506 (criminal intimidation) were added to the FIR. Noida police said, they have booked ten persons and have so far arrested six of Tyagis supporters, who entered the housing society on Sunday evening, and created a ruckus by threatening the lady whom Tyagi had manhandled. Those arrested have been identified as Nitin Tyagi, Lokendra Tyagi, Rahul Tyagi, Churchill Rana, Prince Tyagi and Ravi Pandit, all residents of Ghaziabad. On Monday, bulldozers were used by Noida Authority to raze the illegal constructions made by him in a residential society, after UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath ordered strict action against Tyagi and sought a report from the state home department. Proceedings have been initiated against Tyagi under Gangsters Act and a reward of Rs 25,000 was announced for information about his whereabouts, but on Tuesday morning he was nabbed from Shraddhapuri near Kankarkheda in Meerut, along with his three aides. Police said, during the four days when he was underground, Tyagi fled from Noida to Haridwar, Rishikesh, Saharanpur and Meerut, before he was nabbed. His wife, Anu Tyagi, who was being questioned by Noida police, was released after the report came about his arrest. The controversy began with the surfacing of a video on social media in which the woman complainant was pushed by Tyagi, as the two argued over planting of palm trees by Tyagi in the common area. Tyagi showered abuse at the woman and her husband and pushed her aside. Tyagi owns the ground floor apartment, but he had encroached a large area outside by making extensions and additions to his flat. He had occupied a portion of the park outside by planting trees, and when other residents objected, he and his supporters intimidated the residents. Who is Shrikant Tyagi? His family had ancestral land in the Bhangel area of Noida, and when Noida Authority acquired most of his land, his family made a fortune. They built a row of more than 80 shops and earned rent from them. The family also owned several properties from the maternal side in Sihani Gate, Ghaziabad, where they built shops and rented them out. After his uncle became old, Shrikant Tyagi took control of the business in Bhangel, opened an office, hired bouncers and started taking interest in politics. He first joined Bahujan Samaj Party and got close to BSP leader Swami Prasad Maurya. When Maurya left BSP to join BJP, Tyagi followed suit and proclaimed himself as a leader of BJP Kisan Morcha, though the Morcha on Monday denied any such affiliation. With the help of his political contacts, Tyagi got gunners from state police, and at one point in time, he had seven gunners with him and his wife. Tyagi frequently visited Lucknow, hobnobbed with state-level politicians, got videos and pictures made with top politicians, and showed his clout in the residential society. Noida MP Dr Mahesh Sharma and Noida MLA Pankaj Singh denied that they had any links with Shrikant Tyagi. Dr Mahesh Sharma, who visited the residential society, assured residents that strong action would be taken against Tyagi for his acts. Earlier, Tyagi took a bungalow in Noida Sector 92 on rent, but the residents opposed it when he started to flaunt his clout in public. He had brought private security personnel, put a metal detector, and carried out security checks on every person entering the society. He moved with a fleet of cars, and this caused problems for other residents who found it difficult for parking their vehicles. Tyagi vacated the rented bungalow four months ago, and moved to Omaxe Grande residential complex, where he bought a ground floor apartment. He soon started illegal encroachments both on the ground floor and also broke a wall, to build a personal staircase from his apartment to the basement meant for car parking. This was in clear violation of the guidelines for society residents. Tyagi used to park four to five vehicles in the parking area, though only one or two vehicles were allowed for parking to each resident. Whenever other residents objected, he used his clout to intimidate them. After the illegal constructions were razed on Monday, residents of the society heaved a sigh of relief. Tyagis modus operandi was to project himself as a popular BJP leader in Noida. He used to post pictures and videos with top BJP leaders on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. There were videos of him moving with a fleet of cars, surrounded by security personnel. Flouting Supreme Court order, his vehicle used a hooter, whenever he moved around. Society residents had complained about illegal constructions made by Tyagi three years ago. On October 5, 2019, society residents sent a letter to SSP, Noida, after which notice was sent to Tyagi. A notice was pasted outside his apartment, but he continued with his encroachments. Noida Police said, there are nine cases filed against Tyagi already. Out of them, eight cases relate to Noida Phase 2 police station, while one case has been filed in Sector 39 police station. Charges of hooliganism and fraud were made in most of these cases. Shrikant Tyagi is a symbol of the typically vile, self-styled, small-time politician, not only in UP but in most of the states of India. Such small-time functionaries survive by cultivating closeness to any top politician. They help in arranging crowds for politicians during elections, arm-twist businessmen and traders by collecting money in the name of political parties, and use political patronage to intimidate the general public. Normally, law-abiding citizens prefer to stay away from these musclemen and refrain from filing complaints when they intimidate them. Common citizens know that the local police will show reluctance in filing FIRs because more often than not, policemen have been found hobnobbing with them. Even policemen avoid taking action out of fear of political backlash. As a result, such street-type musclemen gain legitimacy and they get the courage to commit illegal acts, like encroachments, land grabbing, molestation, kidnapping, extortion and violence. I can say, with full confidence, that in the last five years, the situation has changed for the better in UP. The clout of such small-time politicians has been effectively eroded to a large extent. The role of media and government is vital in such a situation. Shrikant Tyagis case is one example. When the societal residents complained of intimidation, Noida police took immediate action and assured them that such musclemen cannot have their way. Bulldozers were brought to raze their illegal constructions. By taking such actions, the message has gone across that musclemen will no more get political protection, come what may. However, it may take some more time for the malaise to end in our society.

My Jeep Compass petrol MT: Great car, but poor after sales experience

BHPian argchoff recently shared this with other enthusiasts. I feel I should now share my ownership experience of the 1.4 liter petrol manual sport Compass after driving it for around 300km. I will keep the review focused mostly about the car and its performance in general as my post sales and service experience has been extremely disappointing so far. As we all know it is impossible to get a test drive of the Sport petrol manual variant, i hope my review would assist in potential buyers seeking to buy this variant. Firstly I would say I was and still am totally hooked on the Tata Harrier XZ in terms of looks and drive quality in spite of the known niggles like quality, fit and finish and the dashboard hurting the left knee. However because of the uncertainty of the future of diesel engines and possible DPF issues I decided to skip diesel vehicles all together. That left me with only petrol cars with manual transmission to choose from and I tested the XUV700, Skoda Kushaq, Kia Seltos GTX, MG hector MT. Since Jeep compass manual was not offered for test drive I test drove the AT petrol and also tried the Hector CVT back to back with the AT petrol Compass.Mahindra XUV700: Most powerful among all the contenders, very responsive. However I found the quality of interior fit and finish not so good. Also the long waiting time for the AX7 was a turnoff.Kia Seltos 1.4 GTX: Peppy and fun to drive till the car went over some uneven roads. The worst suspension ever with the car making squeaking noises over uneven patches. This was felt even more when i sat on the back seat. I was able to press the metal with my thumb near the lock assembly when I opened the driver side door. The metal appeared very thin. That experience matched the GNCAP ratings I saw on the internet.Skoda Kushaq: Thoroughly enjoyed the 1.0TSI. The 1.5TSI though more powerful, for some strange reason kept stalling at low speeds. Luggage space was less and the car appeared more like a hatchback than SUV. Did not feel like value for money.MG Hector hybrid MT: Sluggish and under powered. Car had too much body roll.Jeep Compass petrol AT: Car felt reluctant to move from standstill / crawling speed in auto mode. No matter how much pedal I applied, the car took its own sweet time to gather any speed and i was unable to do any quick overtakes. Amongst all the cars the suspension and handling felt the best. However the sluggish response of the automatic gearbox was not to my liking at all.MG Hector CVT: Immediately after the Compass petrol AT I test drove the Hector CVT. As soon as I applied the accelerator pedal, with ever so a very small couple of seconds delay the car took off nicely and gathered speed quickly. Overall I felt the car was way peppier than the compass AT and overtakes on the Pune - Bangalore highway happened easily. However as my preference was for manual transmission Hector was dismissed.Compass petrol MT: SE showed me the car in their stockyard. For a base model with fabric interiors, the car was impressive in terms of the premium feel I got looking at the interiors. The fabric quality with its orange stitching felt very premium and the grey fabric insert in the dashboard and doors felt classy. The fit, finish of the plastics, steering column and dashboard was very good and did not feel cheap at all if compared to the XT+ version of the Tata harrier or Hector sharp. Booked the Sport variant in red color.The difference in the engine response when compared to the petrol AT is easily noticeable. Where I felt the AT variant to be slow to respond and sluggish to pedal input, the manual variant felt outright peppy and fun to drive. I do not understand why Jeep does not have this manual transmission in the Limited variant. If it was, I would have upped my budget and gone for that. Gear shifts are smooth and precise and pick-up is good. However if the revs drop below 2000 RPM whilst on the move and you shift to a higher gear, there is a sudden power loss felt and it takes time for the engine to respond till the RPM needle nears the 2000 mark. Sometimes if this happens at a time you want to do quick overtakes, it becomes difficult to do so and I felt the need to shift down to lower gear, losing a precious few seconds and sometimes not able to execute the overtake. This was something I could do effortlessly in my Ford Fiesta 1.6 NA petrol car. This intermittent temporary power loss is felt in the first 3 gears only especially between 2nd and 3rd gear. As mentioned by other owners of the same variant, the 1st gear is very short and changing to 2nd gear is necessary as soon as the car is in motion. I think if the engine was tuned to engage the turbocharger around 1500RPM or earlier the car would not feel loss of power at any point. The AC cooling stops / reduces when the car comes to standstill at traffic lights. A soon as I apply the accelerator, the cooling resumes. In the May heat the AC is effective from a fan setting of 5 and above only. TPMS is now available in the sport variant also. The infotainment system is responsive and the audio quality is excellent. I love the ergonomics of the car, everything is in the right place and driver friendly. The metal quality is good, doors are heavy and shut with a nice heavy thud. Overall the car feels built like a tank. Suspension is excellent and simply devours bad surfaces. I felt the steering to be on the stiff heavier side and this is noticeable at slow speeds. However at high speeds this is actually very good, in that the feedback is perfect.A very quick description of the after sales/service experience:The car I received came with an inherent paint flaw which I failed to notice while inspecting the vehicle in the stockyard. Almost on every panel there were bubbles in the paint as if residual debris on the car was painted over leaving small bubble like bumps. These are not easily noticeable unless one looks at every minute detail. I got the delivery of the car in middle of May 2022 and the VIN indicates manufacturing date as April 2022. As soon as I made the full payment, I got a message from the dealer that a different car has been allotted to me than the one I was promised before payment. They took me back to the stockyard to show the newly allotted car so my suspicions were sort of hushed. Fearing I was being given an older car, all my concentration was checking for paint shade difference and VIN (which was April 2022). The car was delivered with a slight scratch on the front left bumper which they agreed to rectify and took the car away two days after delivery. When the car was returned, the bumper was painted so poorly that even a road side novice with a spray paint can could do a better job. That made me check the rest of the car and that's when i noticed the bubbles. Dealer insisted to fix the paint issue in the service center so I took the car again myself over there. While I was discussing the issue with the CRM, I saw that a large crowd had gathered around my car. Fearing that some one dashed my car, I ran out only to find that their service staff, without my permission had removed my front left wheel and was in the process of ripping out the black mudguard cladding, trying to access the foot well area on the passenger side. After escalating this issue, they stopped and said, Sir we forgot your keys in the car and the car is locked. Due to this we cannot move your car and other customers cars are all stuck right up to the main road. Apparently they were trying to access a lock reset button in the foot well area. I made them stop the activity, got their driver to take me back home and went back with him to the service center with the 2nd key. I have escalated the issue to FCA India as the dealer response has been very elusive and disappointing. I certainly won't be taking the car there for servicing. The space is crammed up, service staff is arrogant and unprofessional. One word of advice to future buyers: Insist, absolutely insist on filling up the registration form, especially the chassis and engine number and take a photo of the same. The car as a product itself is amazing and fun to drive. However the sales and service is pathetic, dishonest and incompetent. This experience has taken away what could have otherwise been a happy buying experience. Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.

Blood Protein May Show Diabetes Risks and Cancer Death

Health Research Updates: Researchers in London have identified a blood protein whose increased levels may increase the chance of getting diabetes and dying from cancer. Prostasin stimulates the epithelial sodium channels that control blood volume, blood pressure, and sodium balance. The protein, which is linked to glucose metabolism, has been proven to inhibit the growth of tumours that are brought on by excessive blood sugar. According to research published in Diabetologia, diabetes risk increased by 76% for those who had prostasin. Younger participants and those with lower blood glucose and better kidney function were also found to have higher levels of prostatesin, which was found to be a stronger predictor of diabetes. Researchers also discovered a strong correlation between prostasin and both cancer and all-cause mortality. Prostasin blood levels were associated with a 43% increased risk of dying from cancer. Participants with and without raised blood glucose levels experienced a risk of cancer mortality that increased by 13% and 24%, respectively, for every doubling of prostasin concentration (impaired fasting glucose). Mortality from cardiovascular disease was not associated. According to Professor Gunnar Engstrom of Lund University in Malmo, Sweden, Prostasin may be only a signal that disease may arise, or it may be causally involved, which is interesting since it offers the possibility of targeting this protein with future treatments for both diabetes and cancer. 6 Effective ways to get rid of Allergic cough Health Expert shares insight: Can monkeypox spread via sex?

Who can be trusted to do right thing in resolving Sri Lankas economic crisis?

INTRODUCTION This report is prepared by Social Indicator (SI), the survey research arm of the Center for Policy Alternatives on the findings of the Confidence in Democratic Governance Index (Wave 3). Given the economic and political crisis Sri Lanka is facing, this poll was designed with the aim of capturing the public experience, their opinion on Aragalaya, and on various aspects of the current economic and political crisis. Since the situation in Sri Lanka is volatile, this survey had to be conducted within a very short period of time employing SIs countrywide field network. METHODOLOGY A semi-structured questionnaire with 1100 sample respondents from the four main ethnic communities (Sinhala, Tamil, Up-Country Tamil, and Muslim) was used in the third wave of the Confidence in Democratic Governance Index. Further, the sample was distributed among both urban and rural localities in all 25 districts consisting of men and women. These 1100 respondents were selected using a random sampling technique, and a multi staged random stratified sampling technique was used to select the sample locations. Field work for this national poll was conducted from 1st to 5th August, 2022. The dataset was weighted in order to reflect the actual district and ethnic proportion of the population. The data set was analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). FINDINGS Public experience in the current economic crisis An overwhelming majority states that they are experiencing economic difficulties. About 80% states that their income does not cover their needs. Half of this 80% are experiencing great difficulties. People in the rural sector are experiencing greater difficulties than those who live in urban localities. The survey inquired as to how the current economic crisis has impacted their lives. 87% says that they find it difficult to afford increasing household expenses while 83% states that they no longer purchase the same food items they used to purchase. Close to two-thirds states that they find difficulties in affording their medicine. 42% states that they have reduced the portion of their meal or the number of meals eaten per day. Slightly more than one-third states that at least one person in their household has lost employment due to the current economic crisis. These difficulties are felt across all localities. However, the findings suggest that the impact is slightly higher among the rural communities. When it comes to the consumption of food, people who live in rural localities as well as municipal council areas are facing equally grave difficulties. Trust in national level leaders to do the right thing in resolving the current economic crisis When asked as to what extent they trust national leaders to do the right thing in resolving the current economic crisis, people expressed the highest level of trust in Anura Kumara Dissanayake followed by Ranil Wickramasinghe and Sajith Premadasa. People from all ethnic communities almost equally trust Anura Kumara Dissanayake. Tamil and Up-country Tamil communities place higher faith in Ranil Wickramasinghe than the Sinhalese and the Muslims. However, slightly more than one out of three of the Sinhalese state that they trust Ranil Wickramasinghe to do the right thing in resolving the current economic crisis. Minority communities place a significantly higher level of trust in Sajith Premadasa than the Sinhalese community. The leaders who formally represent the SLPP; Mahinda Rajapaksha, Dullas Alapperuma and Dinesh Gunawardene command only a low level of trust across all ethnic groups. Amongst them, survey findings indicate that Mahinda Rajapaksha is the least trusted leader to do the right thing in resolving the current economic crisis. While Anura Kumara Dissanayake and Rani Wickramasinghe enjoy the confidence of both rural and urban communities, urban Sri Lankans express more confidence in Sajith Premadasa to do the right thing in resolving the current economic crisis as compared to the rural community. Perception on the youth who led the Gota Go Gama Aragalaya The survey focused on the opinion on the youth who led the Gota Go Gama Aragalaya . 84% agrees that the Aragalaya is led by civic minded youth with the aim of reforming the country to become a better democracy. While 82% expresses its disagreement that youth who are involved in the Aragalaya are connected to violent groups, 88% disagrees that Aragalaya is led by a group of people who have no political knowledge, but rather are drug users. Respondents across ethnic communities express overwhelmingly positive opinions about the youth who are involved in the Aragalaya . While negative opinions were limited to a small minority, it was largely concentrated in the Sinhala community as well as among those from rural localities. Public opinion on removing the protestors from the Presidential Secretariat premises 66% disapproves of the way the government removed participants of the Aragalaya from the Presidential Secretariat premises. Public opinion on the passing of Emergency Law by Parliament 65% disapproves the passing of Emergency Law by Parliament on 27 July, 2022. However, 28% of Sinhalese and a quarter of the Tamil community approve of this. Perception on the proposals put forward by the protestors to the current government The survey inquired about the respondents agreement or disagreement with the proposals put forward by the protestors to the current government. An overwhelming majority supports all the proposals. All respondents believe politicians should be audited and their unaccounted wealth should be confiscated by the state. Nine out of every ten people think a general election should be held soon. 87% feels that the 20th Amendment should be repealed and an Amendment similar to the 19th Amendment should be introduced. More than 80% believes that an interim government comprising all parties in Parliament should be established until the country overcomes the current crisis. More than three quarters agree that the executive presidential system should be abolished. However, support for the abolishment of the Executive Presidency is slightly lower amongst the Sinhalese community as well as those who live in municipal areas. Perception on the international community The survey also aimed to understand public perception towards the international community and asked people to indicate which country they think will assist Sri Lanka to overcome the current economic crisis. One fourth ranks China as the number one country to come forward and assist Sri Lanka to overcome the current economic crisis, while close to one out of five ranks the USA and India as the countries that will assist Sri Lanka the most to overcome this economic crisis. Although there is slightly higher confidence in China, the Sinhalese have a mixed opinion as to which country would support Sri Lanka the most. Minority communities believe that India would be the number one country that would help Sri Lanka the most to come out of the crisis. Widespread pessimism The survey sought to capture how optimistic (or otherwise) the people are in terms of the countrys economy returning to normalcy. The findings suggest that the people are extremely pessimistic about the countrys economic future. 58% thinks it will take a long time to recover from the current slump, while 20% states they are not sure. This extreme pessimism can be seen across all ethnic groups and also across communities who live in both urban and rural localities.

A Song for Us review folk-singing love story cant avoid hippy nonsense

Fine performances by the female leads arent enough to rescue this amateurish, low-budget film that hits all the wrong notes This low-budget Canadian feature has its heart in the right place with a gentle story about folk-singing hippy lovers who part and then find each other again years later. Alas, the production values suggest the crew must have been either interns or working for beer and craft table leftovers. Maybe its the jarring disconnect between the TV soap-quality of the digital cinematography and the late 1960s setting the latter just looks wrong on this kind of stock. The disjunction is made even worse by the addition of black-and-white archive footage from the time, showing long-haired youngsters hanging out in Yorkville, then an unincorporated village outside Toronto and home to folk clubs and American draft dodgers. Either way, it feels amateurish, although Lisa Kovack and Haley Midgette, who respectively play the older and younger versions of main character Alice, both give fine performances. That said, its not hard for them to look good given how ropey the acting is elsewhere. The action starts in the present day when Alices documentary-maker daughter Corrina (Karen Scobie) films a homeless busker named Tom (Keith McKie) and shows the footage to her bohemian mother (Kovack). Alice immediately spots that Tom was the same American-born crooner she knew back in the day, a singer with a golden voice that harmonised with her own dulcet soprano. They became lovers and even made a record or two, but Tom got too deep into weed and LSD and they split up. She hooked up with someone else and he went off to the Himalayas in search of enlightenment and a haven from the military looking for more warm bodies to send to Vietnam. Continue reading...

Devon Conway Impressed With Kiwi Youngsters After Performing In European Tour

New Zealand batter Devon Conway is enthused by the performance of some international rookies like Finn Allen, Mark Chapman and Michael Bracewell during the Black Caps' recent wins on the European tour against Scotland, Ireland and the Netherlands and feels they could be in the mix when the squad is selected for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. The Black Caps' white-ball side won 11 matches across the two limited-overs formats on the Europe tour, and Conway, who was not part of the touring side, felt some of the players had shown tremendous potential to be considered for the global showpiece in October. We were watching the guys quite closely in the European tour and obviously they didn't lose a game, Conway said on SENZ Breakfast. There were quite a lot of players that really put their hands up and really played some really good cricket. It's good to see the depth improving and guys getting an opportunity to play. Conway felt the performance of the rookies would put pressure on the more established cricketers in the side, adding that the upcoming series against the West Indies will give them another opportunity to stake claim for the T20 World Cup berth. It's only my second year with the group but yeah, you certainly feel it (the pressure), Conway added. You've got the likes of Finn Allen stepping up and playing some really good cricket and you've got Michael Bracewell; seeing what he's done in the UK has been pretty special. You certainly do feel guys stepping up and putting in performances... guys are banging the door down so you've got to make sure that you're continuing to contribute to the group, added Conway.

Asia Cup Could Be An Opportunity For Hooda, Arshdeep, Avesh & Bishnoi To Claim Spot For T20I WC

The Asia Cup 2022 to be played in the United Arab Emirates from August 27 could be the final opportunity for a lot of youngsters, including Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan, to prove their mettle and stake claim for the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. The Indian cricket board on Monday announced a 15-member squad for the Asia Cup with stalwarts such as Virat Kohli and opener KL Rahul making a comeback even as pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel have missed out due to back and rib injury, respectively. It has given an opportunity to the likes of Arshdeep, Avesh, Ravi Bishnoi and Deepak Hooda to showcase their skills in the continental tournament and make a strong case for their inclusion in the T20 World Cup in October-November this year. All four cricketers have made an impact in the shortest format, after making their debuts post the 2021 T20 World Cup debacle in the UAE. While tweaker Bishnoi has impressed with his variations, taking 15 wickets in nine matches at an economy of 7.15 in the shortest format, his mastery of the googly has left many batters in a tizzy. The lanky Arshdeep Singh made his debut during the tour of England, and in a short career of six matches, has left a huge impression, especially in the recently concluded series against the West Indies. He has picked up 15 wickets, going at an economy of 6.33 and bowling some outstanding yorkers. Avesh Khan's ability to extract pace and bounce in the West Indies has seen him being given an opportunity during the Asia Cup, which will allow him to stake another claim for a place in the World Cup squad. He has picked up 11 wickets from 13 matches, going at an economy rate of 8.67, according to ICC. As for Hooda, his aggressive intent and versatility has seen him beat off competition from Shreyas Iyer. The 27-year-old has played nine T20Is, scoring 274 runs at an average of 54.80 and a brilliant strike rate of 161.17, with one memorable century against Ireland. His handy off-spinners have also worked in his favour and will give the team an additional bowling option. A good Asia Cup for the quartet and they could well be eyeing berths for the World Cup in Australia. The Asia Cup will be played in the UAE from August 27 to September 11. The 15th edition of the tournament will be played between six teams, including a qualifier team. India enter the competition as defending champions and are also the most successful team, having won the trophy seven times. They opened their title defence against Pakistan on August 28. Also Read: Scorecard While the last edition of the tournament was held in an ODI format, this edition will be played in T20 format due to 2022 being a T20 World Cup year. India are in Group A alongside Pakistan and a qualifying team while Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan form Group B.

London police conducted hundreds of strip searches on children

UK: Under-fire police forces in London conducted bandage searches on more than 600 children, most of them black boys, over the course of two years, according to new information released on Monday. After receiving the number from the Metropolitan Police, England's commissioner for children, Rachel de Souza, said she was deeply shocked by the findings. De Souza's request came after Britain's largest police force was forced to apologize in March over the Child Q case, which has led to the investigation of four officers for felony misconduct. In 2020, female officers conducted a strip search on a 15-year-old black schoolgirl after mistakenly believing she was carrying marijuana, even though they knew she was menstruating. In 23% of cases discovered by de Souza, he was discovered without a suitable adult present, and neither was. Between 2018 and 2020, she found that 650 minors aged 10 to 17 were subjected to strip searches by weather officials. More than 95% of the 650 were boys, and the official described 58 percent of them as black. De Souza expressed extreme concern at the disparity in racial representation and suggested that Child Que Met may be symptomatic of a larger systemic problem around child protection. She noted that the numbers had risen significantly each year and demonstrated that many children are being subjected to this intrusive and painful practice every year. A series of incidents involving officers has stunned London police in recent years, in which a member of a diplomatic security squad was sentenced to prison for the kidnapping, rape and murder of Sarah Everard. Cressida Dick's resignation as weather commissioner in February was due to a decline in public confidence in the police. The Metropolitan said it has already made changes to ensure that children subject to intrusive searches are dealt with fairly and respectfully in response to D'Souza's findings. It acknowledged that some children may be vulnerable victims of exploitation by drug dealers and gangsters. Following criticism of the Met over the Child Q case and other incidents, London Mayor Sadiq Khan increased his criticism of the agency. According to a spokesman for Khan, the number of body searches done without any adult presence was deeply concerning. The spokesperson added that there are more serious broader issues regarding inequality and the use of deterrence and search on young black boys.

Living with a Skoda Karoq: 2 years & 21,000 km update

BHPian Mr.Perera recently shared this with other enthusiasts. With covid restrictions mostly out of the way, the Karoq had spent a good amount of time on the road last year. The car still outshines its quality, fit and finish. No creaking noise, no loose panels, this thing is built like a Tank! There were no major problems or issues during last year. The only 'problem' we faced was the availability of the stock Hankook tyres. The tyre availability issue The Karoq's front tyre had encountered a sidewall burst while I was driving on the infamous Trivandrum-Kochi Highway. The front left tyre fell in a pothole, I was doing around 70kmph and I squeezed all the muscles in my body and heard a loud thud from the front left wheel. Luckily I was able to stop safely. When I got out and checked the wheel I saw the tyre had torn pretty badly. I was unsure if the impact had caused more damage to any other components, so I decided to call the RSA and got the car towed to my service centre. The Art The Artist The car had reached the Skoda service in Trivandrum and they inspected it thoroughly and found out there is no other issue other than the damaged tyre. They told me they will try getting a new tyre and will fit it and give the car. But the next day they informed me that they checked at almost all dealerships in India and this specific Hankook tyre that come in the Karoq is not available anywhere. I too tried searching for this tyre with all major tyre stockists in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata but no one had it. The only option I had was to get a different tyre and put it. But I didn't want to do that since 3 will be Hankooks and one will be some other make. So the frustrated me wrote a mail to Skoda, cc'ing Zac Hollis. Within a day I get a call from my dealer saying that Skoda India has agreed to change all my 4 tyres to a new one and as goodwill, I would need to pay only 30% of the entire price. The total estimate they gave was Rs 48,000 for 4 tyres and I had to pay only Rs 16,000 for 4 new tyres. Kudos to Skoda for their good customer service. They had given 4 new Continental Ultra Contact UC6 tyres. The Conti UC6 seems to be a much more comfort-oriented tyre. The comfort and noise levels seem to be better than the Hankooks. But it doesn't grip as well as the Hankooks. I can hear the tyres screeching and begging for grip on those long winding corners. Low Oil Warning At around 17,000 km the car showed a 'Check oil level warning'. I checked the dipstick and found the oil level was slightly below the lower limit. Took the car to the service and topped up around 300 ml of oil. I realised these engines consume quite a bit of oil, tried getting a 1L bottle of oil from the service but sadly they didn't have the small bottles in stock. Once it comes back in stock I plan to keep one bottle in the car all the time. Second service The second service was done at 18,300 km. Since we had taken the 4-year service plan from Skoda all works were included in that. All normal things like oil, oil filter, air filter and cabin filter were changed this time. When I went to pick up the car they had given me a bill of Rs 635 saying it is the charge for cleaning and lubricating the sunroof mechanism.Other observations:From the beginning, I was not happy with the front wipers as they occasionally made a very disturbing screeching sound. I showed this at the showroom and even after they cleaned the windshield and wiper, still the noise was there. They said there is no warranty on the wiper and I had to change them. The stock wipers cost a whooping 3500 bucks as per my Service Advisor. I later got a set of Blaupunkt wipers for Rs 1100 and boy I am impressed. For one-third, the price the Blaupunkt wipers are super value for money and do a good job during the rains. The multimedia system has some bugs when I connect my phone via Apple Carplay. Sometimes the connection gets lost and then it takes a lot of time to detect my phone again. I have never had this issue in my Octavia when I use the same phone and the same cable. Hope a software update might fix this.The Still So Good thingsThe Interiors - I can still write a long essay about the interior of the car! It is so good that still every time I get in the car it makes me go Wow. Everything is so well put together and looks and feels so fantastic. It is a bit difficult to keep the light-coloured leathers clean, but I always ensure to clean them after every long drive or once every 6 months.Driving feedback - The chassis + suspension is just magic! The car is so well planted at triple-digit speeds and gives immense confidence while driving on the highway. The engine isn't the power unit and I wish it had a bit more power, but once this thing gains speed it just flies!Headlights - The stock headlights are really good and are the best I have ever experienced in any car. Night-time driving is so stress-free and safe. To put things in perspective my Octavia also has full LED headlights like the Karoq. But those are not even half as bright as the ones in the Karoq! In Octavia during a rainy night, driving with the headlights is like driving with no headlights at all!Paint quality - Every car detailer who sees the car has so much to praise about the paint quality. They say the paint quality in Skoda and VW cars is one of the best but the paint quality in the Karoq seems to be so good that it is a detailer's dream.The not so Good thingsThe fear of having a DQ200 gearbox - No matter however good the car is, the fact that the gearbox isn't the reliable one out there still is there behind my head. Haven't heard any Karoq owner getting a gearbox issue till now, but we all have seen the multiple threads here and frustrated owners who have had a tough time due to the dry clutch DQ200 unit. Just praying that nothing such creeps up in the Karoq.The almost white coloured seats - For someone (like me) who loves cleaning their car, having these seats is a good thing. You regularly have a place to spend time cleaning the car. They get dirty very fast. But for the rest big bunch of people it is a pain to keep them clean.Getting basic accessories - The problem of owning a limited run car is the fact that getting basic accessories like car cover, window blinds etc is difficult. I have searched multiple shops and all over Amazon and have never found them. Luckily Creta's car cover was a perfect fit for the Karoq. But I'm still looking for sunblinds.Fuel efficiency - The fuel efficiency from the 1.5L engine isn't the best in my opinion. There are owners here who have got even 19 km/l on highways. But the best I have got on a highway drive is 15 km/l. That too being very easy on the throttle. Its worst during stop-go traffic, I have seen figures like 6 km/l on drives within the city.The best FE I have got to date Also noticed that the car runs much better and smoother on 95 octane petrol. The recommended fuel rating in the Karoq is 95 octane fuel. In the last year, IOC has been aggressively rolling out the XP95. And it's come to a point that it's available in almost all IOC bunks. Initially, I used to fill only normal petrol, but once XP95 came, I stuck to filling XP95 all the time. The change in refinement especially during cold starts is very obvious after that.Overall Impressions after 2 yearsThe Karoq still proves to be a brilliant car. Even after 2 years, it still looks and feels like new. A perfect do-it car with great build quality and interiors. The other day I happened to check out the top-end Kushaq Monte Carlo model which is around 24 lakhs on road. Sadly for that money, the Kushaq lacks the finesse that Skodas are known for. No offence to Kushaq owners, but Skoda should seriously consider bringing back the Karoq in India, at least as a CKD. We really deserve such well-built cars. Some photos of the Czech beauty The Karoq with its younger brother Check out BHPian comments for more insights and information.

'The Talk Is To Be Adaptable': Arshdeep Singh After India's 4-1 Win In T20I Series Against West Indies

Young left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh revealed that he was trying to keep thing simple and followed the talk of adaptability in the team during the T20I series against West Indies. In the series, Arshdeep impressed everyone with his economical bowling to pick seven wickets and earn the Player of the Series award in 4-1 victory. It feels really good and feel grateful to represent my country. Tried to keep things simple. As Rahul Dravid sir says we are a processed based teams so I stick with my process. I don't try to think much about other things during the bowling. The talk is to be adaptable. We have to do whatever the demand of the wicket and the team is, said Arshdeep after the match. Arshdeep further credited the clarity in ideas and though from the Indian team management over his stellar bowling show and making the dressing room atmosphere nice. We do what the captain and coaches tell us. Credit to them for the clarity they have given me. I don't know what my greatest asset is but keeping things simple and focusing on process helps me. The way the captains back the youngsters, and the feel of the dressing room is very nice. Youngsters and seniors feel the same. Helps as a youngster to come in and repeat what you do with your IPL and state teams. My mentor and my competition is my dad, he is very economical and bowling well. Left-arm spin all-rounder Axar Patel, who won the Player of the Match award in the fifth T20I for his figures of 3-15, revealed that bowling stump-to-stump line helped him in getting the scalps of West Indies top three batters. My plan was to vary my pace. I knew wickets were slow. And tried to bowl stump to stump. The main thing is that I need to back my strength because in T20s batters try to hit you. So you just focus on bowling good areas and using your strength and your pace. Axar further remarked that the wickets in last two T20Is were similar to the ODI series pitches in Trinidad. The wickets felt similar to the ones I played in the Caribbean earlier on The wickets for the one-dayers were similar, and then when I played the last two T20Is, it helped.

EXAMINING HOW G SQUARE HOUSING BECAME THE MOST TRUSTED REALTOR GROUP IN SOUTH INDIA

If you visit the southern part of the country, G Square Housing is a name that you just cannot miss. They have steadily built a reputation of being the most trust-worthy name in the market. This article examines how G Square Housing fostered trust amongst its customers by giving RERA and CMDA approved plots. Real estate is considered to be a murky market. It is full of fraudsters, scammers and deceivers who leave no opportunity to deceive their clients. You might have heard the story of Natwarlal, who once sold the Taj Mahal to an unscrupulous foreigner. Such tales of deceit are commonplace in the real estate market. This is where G Square Housing acts as the exception. In an industry that is renowned for deceit, G Square Housing has built a highly credible name. Not only that, they have steadily built their reputation and are now endorsed by the most trustworthy face in the country M.S Dhoni! One of the reasons why G Square Housing has managed to build such a stellar reputation is their commitment to always provide plot that come with RERA approval. To those who may not know, Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) was established under the Real Estate Act, 2016 with the objective of protecting home buyers and bringing some much-needed transparency. Buying a RERA approved plot has many benefits. For starters, it means that your builder is not likely to go bankrupt or insolvent. Every builder of a RERA approved plot, has to deposit 70% of the amount realised in a separate bank account. This money can be withdrawn only after the project has been completed and has received its certification of completion from a certified architect, civil engineer or a chartered accountant. As a result, companies like G Square Housing gain the trust of the consumers who are comfortable knowing that the project will be completed. Another advantage is that, when it comes to RERA approved properties, the builder has to register the project with the regulatory body. This means that, the builder has to disclose their financial and legal details. This way the customers can be satisfied and can also verify the details. This is another reason why customers feel comfortable trusting companies like G Square Housing, who believe in full transparency. Another major benefit of RERA approved properties is that the calculation of carpet area has been made uniform. Pre-RERA every builder would determine the carpet area as per their own calculation. But now the formula for calculating carpet area has been clearly laid out, which ensures that there is no manipulation by developers. This is why G Square Housing customers are able to trust that they will definitely get the area that they have been promised. What is also worth noting is that in Chennai, the G Square Housing plots come with Chennai Metropolitan Developmental Authority (CMDA) approval. This is crucial as it ensures that your property is safe and legal. It is not uncommon for the municipal authorities to demolish properties that do not have the CMDA approval. But with G Square Housing, the customers can be assured that such an action will not take place. Conclusion In India, the real estate market is a tough market to build a credible reputation. However, G Square Housing has come out as an exception. As a result of a stellar track-record and impressive goodwill, G Square Housing has made a mark as the most trusted real estate company in South India. By providing their customers with RERA and CMDA approved plots, not only are they ensuring transparency, they are also saving them from bureaucratic headaches that may be experienced at these government offices.

Port City Colombo SEZ introduced at the Commonwealth Business Forum 2022 Kigali, Rwanda

CHEC Port City Colombo in collaboration with the Colombo Port City Economic Commission successfully introduced the Special Economic Zone to 50 plus potential investors and members at a specially curated Breakfast meeting held at the Business Forum Event. The event was a global platform for Sri Lankas first service-oriented Special Economic Zone (SEZ) to be showcased in the Business Forum, which was held in Kigali, Rwanda from the 21 st to the 23 rd of June 2022. As a strategic partner of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC), Port City Colombo participated as a proud knowledge partner of the Commonwealth Business Forum, held alongside the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Kigali, which was the first and largest, in-person gathering for governments and businesses across the Commonwealth since the COVID-19 pandemic. CHOGM 2022 attracted over 1,700 delegates from over 90 countries. Additionally, the Commonwealth has lately, embarked driving forward businesses and cultivating synergies amongst its member nations whilst also expanding upon the member nations of the Commonwealth itself. The opening comments were given by the Deputy Chairman of the CWEIC, Sir Hugo Swire followed by a key note address by Mr. Thulci Aluwihare, the Deputy Managing Director of CHEC Port City Colombo. Sir Hugo, in his opening address stated, Its a very exciting development, despite the current economic situation prevailing in the country, the Port City SEZ is ring fenced from that. The panel also consisted of the Director General of the Colombo Port City Economic Commission who provided insights on the Commissions role in the project and further also addressed some of the key misconceptions pertaining to the project. The event was well received by the audience and generated positive feedback on the overall unique features and positioning of the Port City SEZ which will be a game changer in the region. It was clearly highlighted that the investor confidence was primarily driven by the Port City Economic Commission engaging with global consultants for providing best practices for ease of doing business, banking and ring fencing regulations which will ensure independent functioning of business activities within the zone. Feedback During the Business Forum senior management of CPCC and the CPCEC had meaningful one-on-one dialogues with leading institutions and leaders from the business community that cited a Special Economic Zone in Colombo was paramount in attracting Foreign Direct investment. A common topic discussed with most investors was the current thinking on economically ring fencing the SEZ with robust regulations to ensure impact of current macro-economic shocks of the country is minimized and the risks can be managed suitably within the zone. As per the Colombo Port City Economic Commission Act, 100% of development capital and doing business capital required to be raised overseas which allows for such supportive ring fencing regulations. In addition to voicing concerns on the current macro-economic outlook and potential policy reforms as next steps to be engaged as a result of an IMF Program, Investors were keen to obtain clarity on the fiscal and non-fiscal incentives that would be offered for businesses setting up or relocating to Port City Colombo, SEZ. It was communicated that priority sectors and Businesses of Strategic Importance will be granted a tax holiday of up to 40 years which is to be established through regulations. A key take away was that it is imperative that an attractive package of fiscal incentives is offered to entice investors with returns that commensurate with country risk. Some of the other pertinent queries that were posed during the event included: What are the impacts and implications of the current economic headwinds on Port City and specifically, how would one mitigate the currency risk at Port City? Considering the foreign currency crisis currently prevailing in the country, if an investor were to bring foreign currency into Sri Lanka, how safe are said funds and are there any restrictions on permitted transactions and repatriation? What is the availability of skilled human capital? Sri Lanka has always been touted for its strategic location. Besides its natural geographical advantage, how connected is Sri Lanka to global supply chains? Additionally, how many bi-lateral and multi-lateral trade agreements are in place and what are some of the governments initiatives to promote trade? Overall, the event allowed CHEC Port City to engage and market the SEZ to a global audience whilst also inundating them on the value proposition at play and indicating why this could be a service-based hub in the South Asian region. Given the interest we garnered during the event, the next step in realising on the projects potential is for the regulations to be passed and enacted so that the go-to-market commercialization phase can commence.

Review imposition of GST on essential items: CM Pinarayi at NITI Aayog meeting

Governance The Chief Minister was addressing the seventh Governing Council Meeting of NITI Aayog, on Sunday, which was chaired by PM Narendra Modi. TNM Staff File Photo | PTI Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, on Sunday, August 7, asked the Union government to address the challenges of cooperative federalism. The Chief Minister was addressing the seventh Governing Council Meeting of NITI Aayog when he demanded that the legislation on subjects in the Concurrent List should be initiated only after adequate consultation with the states. The Kerala CM also sought urgent initiations from the Union government to enhance necessary legal remedies in the wake of the recent Supreme Court judgment on Eco-Sensitive Zones (ESZ). It is necessary for alleviating the hardships of the marginalized sections that live in the affected areas, he said. Pinarayi also drew the attention of the council to the pertaining issue of GST and demanded to review the imposition of GST on essential items and requested the Union government to continue the compensation to the States for another five years. He also informed the council, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, that Kerala is in the forefront in the decentralisation initiatives and requested that this important achievement need to be addressed while distributing the consolidated funds to states. He also pointed out that the central share of assistance under PMAY Urban and Rural needs to be revised considering the upward cost of construction materials. As part of modernising Keralas roads and transportation, a time bound completion of all projects including the National Highway developments need to be accelerated. In order to move towards a more eco-friendly transport system and to alleviate accidents, the state seeks support from the Union government for an early clearance of the states pending rail and air traffic proposals, Pinarayi said. Stating that being a 590-km coastal belt, Kerala was vulnerable to soil erosion, especially during extreme rain falls, he said that it requires technological and financial support. The Union government reduced the quota of kerosene allotment for the state recently, which has affected the fisher folk badly, he said and demanded to reinstate the allotment. The state has developed its perceptions on education based on democracy, constitutional values, secularism, and scientific temper. It aims at higher enrolment and higher quality in education. Universal education cannot be achieved by privatisation. Keralas K-FON project is to bridge the gap of digital divide in the education sector, he further added, drawing attention to the achievements of the state in creating a comprehensive model in co-ordination of farming, animal husbandry and fisheries, which is an emulative model for other states. This was the first council meeting of NITI Aayog after the new vice chairperson Suman Bery and CEO Parameswaran Ayyar assumed the office. Union Minister of Finance Nirmala Sitharam, Minister for External Affairs S Jai Shankar, Minister for Food, Public Distribution Piyush Goyal and Minister for Road, Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari were also present during the Council meeting.

An inmate in Lucknow prison accuses officials of sodomy

LUCKNOW: In a bizarre incident, a gangster lodged in a Lucknow prison has accused jail officials of sodomy and said that he feared for his life. Reportedly, Karan Kumar Gupta has also petitioned his case in the Gangster court for lodging of a First Information Report against jail officials. Gupta has complained that jail officials used to make obscene gestures while spotting him inside the jail. In his appeal, he alleged that on July 26, two correctional staff members sodomised him in front of two other inmates and threatened him with serious penalties if he complained to senior authorities. Ashish Tiwari, senior jail superintendent in Lucknow, claimed that the thug submitted the appeal on August 2. We have performed a flimsy investigation into the inmate's charges, and all of his assertions have been proven to be unfounded, stated Tiwari. He said that the CCTV footage from July 26 demonstrates that the jail official who has been accused of sodomy was on duty in the lawn from 6 to 7 a.m. According to the police, the gangster spoke to members of his family from July 26 to August 1 without telling them or any other inmates in the jail about it.

Apple reportedly tells suppliers to avoid 'Made in Taiwan' labels on shipments to China

Apple has reportedly warned Taiwanese suppliers to ensure shipments to China comply with a longstanding labeling regulation following House Speaker Nancy Pelosis recent visit to Taipei . According to Nikkei (via The Guardian ), the company recently told manufacturers on the island that parts bound for the mainland must list Chinese Taipei or Taiwan, China as their source. Thats in line with a policy China has had in place for years but only began enforcing after tensions with the US flared up following Pelosis visit last week. Under the policy, officials can delay and even reject shipments that say Made in Taiwan. The self-governing island has its own set of labeling rules. Shipments must list Taiwan or Republic of China as the point of origin. Apple did not immediately respond to Engadgets request for comment. The tech giant and many other American companies have a complicated relationship with China. If the report is accurate, it wouldnt be the first time Apple has sought to appease the Chinese Communist Party. In 2019, the company removed the Taiwan flag emoji from iOS in Hong Kong amid the pro-democracy protests that occurred in the city that year. In this instance, Apple may have felt it had no choice but to comply with Chinas policy on Taiwanese shipments. In April , Tim Cook said semiconductor shortages significantly impacted the companys iPad business. Ahead of its iPhone 14 launch later this year, additional delays due to a customs dispute would likely be disastrous for Apple.

If your friend is suffering from Depression then the best gift you can give him is to get out him of Depression by following these steps. Listen First: When people get depressed, they often feel very isolated. They may feel that they have no one they can talk to about their problems. It 's difficult for a depressed person to talk about how they are feeling. Be there for your friend and let them do the talking. Encourage them to talk about their illness, dont try to give solution and advice be a good listenier and try to understand the problem. Make them Socialize : A depressed person is likely to withdraw from their social circle. They may not want to socialize at all. Keep them in the loop, though. Invite them to social events, but don't push too hard for them to attend. Inviting your friend to events will reassure them that they are not forgotten. If they dont want to come dont force him but remind him that you are there for him. Dont give Expert advice : A depressed doesnt want advice the only thing they want is you support. Leave the treatment of the illness to the professionals. The most import thing that you can do for a depressed friend is to be there for them. Go out with them and spend time with them. Do not Judge them. Be patient: In the starting you will be very helpful and you enjoys the process but as soon as time passes it can be very frustrating dealing with a friend who has depression. There may be times when you would rather walk away and get on with your own life. Don't lose your patience, though. Don't desert a friend when they need your help the most. Do not left your friend alone. E ncourage them to seek professional Help : It is very important for a depressed person to seek professional help but they dont want to take it. There are support groups and counselors who can provide help. A person with severe depression may also need to take medication to ease their condition. Encourage your friend to talk to their doctor. Offer Practical help : Help your friend but indirectly. Depressed people sometimes neglect everyday tasks. You might find that they don't have enough food in their home, or they are not keeping on top of household chores. A depressed person might also find it difficult to open their mail and pay their bills. For a depressed person to do various simple daily task is difficult. You can't cure a friend's depression, but you can offer practical help. If you are going shopping, ask your friend if they need anything. If you know that they aren't eating, offer to cook them a meal. Little things like this can be a great comfort to someone with depression.

Two years after Pettimudi landslide, victims father still awaits death certificate

Kerala Rains For many months Shanmughanathan, who lost two children to the Pettimudi landslide, scoured the site in the hope of finding the remains of his elder son Dineshkumar. Now he awaits his death certificate. Sandeep Vellaram Its two years since a landslide claimed 70 lives in Pettimudi near Munnar in Kerala's Idukki district but the kin of some of the victims are still waiting to get a death certificate of their dear ones they lost to the tragic incident. On August 6, 2020, Pettimudi witnessed a landslide that buried estate layams (line houses) under a mound of mud and rubble claiming 66 lives. Four people are still considered missing as their bodies could not be found. Shanmughanathan lost his two sons 22-year-old Dineshkumar and 20-year-old Nithishkumar in the mishap. The youngsters reached Pathuruthy layam in Pettimudi on August 4 to attend the birthday function of the granddaughter of his brother Anantha Sivam. It was meant to be a short visit for a family event but the landslide tragically took away their lives. Dineshkumar had completed his Bachelors degree at Dr Mahalingam College of Engineering and Technology in Tamil Nadu's Pollachi while Nithishkumar was an engineering student at St Joseph's College of Engineering and Technology in Pala in Kottayam. The body of Shanmughanathans younger son Nithishkumar was recovered after a long search but that of Dineshkumar could not be traced. For many months after the incident Shanmughanathan would travel 23km from Munnar to the landslide site in Pettimudi every day to look for the remains of his son. In the absence of a death certificate, Shanmughanathan says he could not even claim the compensation that was due to him. Kin of three others who lost near ones in the mishap are also in a similar situation because the bodies could not be found. Shanmughanathan did not conduct the rites that are usually observed on the 41st day after the death of a family member, until last year, because the body could not be found. Earlier, the officials said that they need a special government order to issue the death certificate and compensation to the kin. But I have not yet received the death certificate or compensation. The three other missing people are my relatives. Their immediate kin also didn't get the certificate or compensation, says Shanmughanathan. Many times he approached the authorities to get the death certificate or nominee certificate of his son. Revenue officials kept saying they have completed the process. But I am yet to get the certificate and the compensation for my younger son, alleges Shanmugnanathan. But Idukki district administration officials are claiming that on the second anniversary of the landslide tragedy the government completed the compensation distribution to all kin of the deceased. A press release issued by the Idukki district administration said that the government has completed the compensation distribution to kin of all the 66 victims. The bodies of four people could not be traced and the government issued a special order and completed the compensation distribution to their kin, the release stated. Munnar Panchayat secretary K N Sahajan confirmed that they have not issued death certificates to people still missing in the Pettimudy landslide. The process to issue death certificates to the missing families is in progress and we will issue them soon. When we realised the issue I sent a letter to the Tehsildar to declare the civil death of the four missing people. The order on civil death will be issued soon and then the death certificates can be issued, he said. A top revenue official said that without getting death certificates the kin of the missing people can't apply for assistance or compensation. Only the lives of 12 people could be saved and the rescue operations continued for over 16 days. Apart from that of Dineshkumar, the bodies of Kasthuri (26), Priyadarshini(7), and Karthika (21) are to be traced..

One more arrest made in Karnataka BJP activist murder

The Karnataka police has detained a man from Kerala, who allegedly harboured BJP youth wing leader Praveen Kumar Nettaru's killers, police sources said on Saturday. August 6. As per statemnt by the source, the accused who stayed in Uppala Sonkalu village was in direct connection with the killers and gave accomodation to them for two days. The accused had spoken to killers after the murder from his landlord's cellphone so as to avoid police attention. He is expected to offer more information on killers and their plot against Praveen. Following a directive from the Union Home Ministry, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken control of the investigation. The Chief Secretary of the Karnataka government and the DGP of the State Police Department have both received copies of the order from the Centre's Under Secretary, Vipul Alok. The BJP, which is currently in power in Karnataka, was under intense pressure from all sides to turn over the case to the NIA. Hindu groups have rebelled against the ruling saffron party on the grounds that the establishment is taking a soft stance. Further, the activists besieged the home of the Home Minister, severely embarrassing the BJP government. Investigations have revealed that Praveen was killed over his campaign against halal chopped meat. Praveen had solid relationships with all groups of people in the area, including minorities. The investigation is also looking into whether the murder was related to the recent killings of Muslim youngsters in the area. Soon after Praveen's killing, a gang of miscreants reportedly hacked a Muslim youth to death and confessed in the probe that they killed to avenge Praveen's murder.

Karnataka HC cites Upanishads to ban sale of firecrackers in congested Bengaluru areas

Court In a first, the High Court judgment pronounced by Justice Krishna Dixit included pictures of youngsters who had sustained injuries due to firecrackers. Shivani Kava Image for Representation/PTI The Karnataka High Court has upheld an order passed by the City Police Commissioner banning the sale of firecrackers in congested areas of Bengaluru. A Karnataka High Court bench of Justice Krishna S Dixit held that it needs no research to know that the production, transportation and bursting of crackers including those with reduced emission such as green crackers are detrimental to mother nature, in varying degrees and kind. Justice Krishna S Dixit dismissed the petitions filed by Madhi Trading Company and others, who operate companies that deal with crackers and fireworks items near Sultanpet and on Avenue Road in Bengaluru. The petitioners had appealed against the 2012 order by Bengaluru police, banning the sale of firecrackers in congested areas in Bengaluru. In a first, the judgment included pictures of those who had sustained injuries from firecrackers. This would make the Makers of the Constitution to shiver in their grave. There cannot be a greater violation of the right to life, limb and liberty, the High Court said in the order, depicting pictures of youngsters who had sustained eye injuries in firecracker mishaps.Indisputably, the ill-effects of firecrackers cause irreversible damage to the environment. Apart from infants, expectant mothers and patients (more particularly those having heart ailments and high blood pressure) even animals and birds too feel the violence due to bursting of crackers. the HC observed. Quoting a verse from the Upanishads, the High Court said What right (do) humans have to perpetrate acts of violence, when our scriptures (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 1.4.14) edict: sarve bhavantu sukhinaha, sarve santu niraamayaha It nearly translates to: let all people be happy and all creatures be free from affliction. The High Court also added that the alarming rate of climate change is caused due to the unsustainable and environmentally harmful patterns of life, and that sustainability in this regard must now more than ever before factor into decision making. The court ruled that the sale of firecrackers falls under the same category of products like poison, alcohol, cigarettes, and explosives and hence it is not protected by the fundamental right outlined in Article 19 of the Constitution. The court added that the firecracker company can move the location of its shop out of the congested area, holding that any mishap in these areas will impact a large number of people, as it will be difficult for fire engines to enter small lanes that are congested and overpopulated. If the petitioners have to shift their 'apple carts' to safer areas, quitting the lanes in question, other similarly circumstanced businessmen cannot be permitted to cling on to the same area. What applies to goose applies to gander, as rightly contended by the counsel for the State, the High Court said in the order. The bench also relied on the observations by the National Green Tribunal dated December 11, 2020, adding, Even if there are other sources of pollution and meteorological conditions contributing to the air pollution, it does not justify ignoring acknowledged pollution by bursting of firecrackers adding to the air and noise pollution, beyond statutory norms. Citing that right to business is not obsolete, Justice Dixit said that there is no justification for violating air and noise quality norms. The HC said, Nobody has a right to carry on business at the cost of the health of others.

Kerala CM congratulates M Sreeshankar on winning silver medal at CWG 2022

CWG 2022 The 23-year-old national record holder soared to 8.08m in his fifth attempt to finish second behind Laquan Nairn of Bahamas in a nerve-wrecking men's long jump final on Thursday. PTI Twitter Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Friday, August 5 congratulated Murali Sreeshankar, who won a silver medal in the men's long jump event at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Vijayan said Sreeshankar made Kerala and Indian proud and added that he was an inspiration.Congratulations to M Sreeshankar on winning silver in the long jump at #CWG2022. He has made Kerala and India proud by winning our first-ever medal in this event. His trailblazing leap will inspire many youngsters. Wishing him continued success, Pinarayi tweeted. The 23-year-old national record holder soared to 8.08m in his fifth attempt to finish second behind Laquan Nairn of Bahamas in a nerve-wrecking men's long jump final on Thursday. Nairn also had a best jump of 8.08m but his second best of 7.98m was better than 7.84m of Sreeshankar. Under rules, if two jumpers are tied on the same distance, the one who has a better second best effort will be ranked ahead. This was India's second medal in athletics at the Commonwealth Games this time. On Wednesday, Tejaswin Shankar had won a bronze in men's high jump to open India's medal account in athletics in this CWG. Sreeshankar became the first Indian male long jumper to win a silver at the CWG. Suresh Babu had won a bronze in the 1978 edition. Sreeshankar had gone into CWG as gold medal favourite on the basis of his season's and personal best of 8.36m, which had put him in joint second ranking in the world this season. Sreeshankar may have missed out on the cherished gold by the thinnest of margins but said this is just the beginning and he is hungry for more success.I've been waiting for a medal (at a global meet) for a very long time. I was seventh at World Indoor and World Outdoor, sixth at World Juniors, fourth Asian Indoors, sixth at Asian Games, Sreeshankar told PTI.Every time I was (finishing) 6th or 7th, so I was really happy with the silver. I have been waiting for a global medal for a very long time, but I kept missing out. This is a small step towards my big goal in the 2024 Paris Olympics and I'm working towards that, he added. A gold was within his grasp and Sreeshankar knew that as well. Locked on at 8.08m with eventual gold medal winner Laquan Nairn of Bahamas, Sreeshankar would have won a gold if he had jumped 7.99m in his last attempt. But to his and the Indian contingent's disappointment, Sreeshankar's foot on the board was found to be ahead of the foul line by 2cm as measured by the laser beam under the newly-introduced foul detector system. Sreeshankar's medal in men's long jump comes 44 years since Suresh Babu's bronze at the Edmonton Commonwealth Games in 1978. He is also fourth Indian jumper since Babu, Anju Bobby George (bronze at Manchester Games in 2002), and MA Prajusha (silver at New Delhi Games in 2010) to win a medal at the showpiece event.

MPs can't avoid summons of law enforcement agencies: VP

New Delhi: M Venkaiah Naidu, the vice president of India and chairperson of the Rajya Sabha, stated on Friday that Members of the Parliament (MPs) cannot avoid being summoned by law enforcement in criminal cases, whether or not a session is in session. Vice President Biden's comments came as the Enforcement Directorate is investigating money-laundering allegations involving Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, and former West Bengal Minister Partha Chatterjee. When the session is in session or not, MPs cannot escape being summoned by law enforcement agencies in criminal situations. It is our responsibility as law-abiding people to respect the law and the court system, M. Venkaiah Naidu made this statement today in the Rajya Sabha during the ongoing Monsoon Session of the Parliament. On July 18, the Monsoon Session began, and it will end on August 12. Congress has often questioned the price increase and the increase in the Goods and Service Tax (GST). On these concerns, Congress MPs have been protesting both within and outside of Parliament. The protests occur as Sonia Gandhi, the president of the Congress, and Rahul Gandhi, a member of parliament, are being questioned by the Enforcement Directorate regarding a case involving the National Herald newspaper. Sanjay Raut was also detained by the Enforcement Directorate shortly after midnight on August 1 in connection with alleged financial irregularities in the chawl's reconstruction. The Enforcement Directorate also seized over 50 crores in cash and undeclared assets from locations connected to West Bengal Minister and now-suspended TMC leader Partha Chatterjee last month. Pralhad Joshi, the Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, on Friday referred to Rahul Gandhi as a false Gandhi whose ideology was also fake in one of the strongest attacks on the Congressman by the BJP, which is currently in power at the federal level. Joshi remarked in remarks to reporters while on the grounds of the Parliament: Rahul Gandhi is not related to Mahatma Gandhi in any way. He is a Gandhi impostor, or nakli. It's also a false ideology.

Congress protests over unemployment, inflation; Section 144 in place

New Delhi: On Friday, the Congress party is staging a massive nationwide protest by raising issues of price rise and unemployment. According to a statement from the party, MPs for the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will host a Chalo Rashtrapati Bhavan from Parliament. The agitators, which include members of the CWC are expected to participate in PM House gherao later in the day. The party's state units will hold similar protests across the country. This comes ahead of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's address today at All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters in New Delhi. Congress leaders have assembled at the party headquarters in Delhi ahead of the march. With the exception of Jantar Mantar, the Delhi Police has enforced Section 144 CrPC throughout the entire New Delhi district. The police said, there will be no protests, dharnas, or gheraos on August 5 in the New Delhi district due to security, law and order, and traffic concerns. Ajay Maken, a senior Congress politician, said earlier this week that the AICC (All India Congress) had been transformed into a police cantonment and that they had gotten a letter from the DCP telling them they couldn't demonstrate on August 5. The government can try to suppress us all they want, but we'll continue with our plans even if we're imprisoned and protest against things like inflation, unemployment, and the GST on food. On Thursday, Piyush Goyal and Mallikarjun Kharge, the leader of the opposition in the Rajya Sabha, argued about the ED summonses sent to the leaders of the Congress. Kharge accused the central government of attempting to intimidate and demoralise the Opposition; in response, Goyal asserted that the government does not meddle with how law enforcement organisations operate. As part of the continuing money laundering probe, the Enforcement Directorate earlier on Wednesday sealed the Young Indian Ltd office in New Delhi's National Herald building.

People gave befitting reply to Jayant Sinha, who said- 'Where is price rise?'

Ranchi: Thecommon people have been troubled by the rising inflation in India. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has also admitted this in the Lok Sabha. But BJP MP Jayant Sinha has dismissed the issue of price rise. According to him, inflation is nowhere to be seen and that is why the Opposition is also not getting to see it anywhere. Now this one statement by Jayant Sinha has further angered those who have already become worried about the rising inflation. It is in Jayant Sinha's parliamentary constituency Hazaribagh that people are suffering from the price rise. The media has discussed it with the people of Hazaribagh. They have asked questions on price rise, and they have asked for a report on the work of the government. From what has now come out, it is clear that people are angry with the price rise as well as the indifference of the government. According to the local resident, if any government comes, inflation goes up. They are not able to teach the children or do anything, the man is eating and drinking. At the same time, Dev Kumar Sinha has said in a more strident manner that the GST of foodgrains should be reduced, those who are poor are facing inflation. The MP should come and see whether there is inflation or not. Due to the same discussion, some people also came out who made it clear that MP Jayant Sinha has not come to his parliamentary constituency after winning. That is why heis not considering inflation an issue. Now, apart from the people, the opposition is also rejecting these claims of Jayant Sinha. But Sinha himself has stuck to his claims. According to him, the decisions taken by the Modi government to contain inflation have been unmatched. The poor were given ration, electricity, and gas cylinders. In such a situation, no one is worried but happy.

TN traders solution to avoid GST on 25 kgs of rice: Sell it in 26 kg sacks

GST With 5% GST levied on pre-packed, labelled items sold in retail, 25 kg rice bags are more expensive by Rs 50-80 now. But traders in Tamil nadu have found an airtight loophole. TNM Staff Image for Representation | WikimediaCommons/Orderinchaos In order to circumvent the 5% Goods and Services Tax (GST) on rice, a group of rice vendors in Tamil Nadu have come up with a simple solution selling rice in 26 kg bags instead of the usual 25 kg. The government considers rice bags weighing under 25 kg as retail, and each kg of this rice now costs Rs 2-3 more than it used to. As a result, consumers have to shell out Rs 50-80 extra for one 25 kg bag of rice. However, traders have found a way to avoid the charges by selling rice in quantities of 26 kg, rather than 25 kg. The 5% GST hike is applicable to even unbranded commodities if they are pre-packaged and labelled and is levied on all rice bags under 25 kg (which is considered retail). However, now that the rice is packed in 26 kg bags, the rice becomes wholesale, which considerably eases the burden on consumers. However, this would not help those consumers who cannot afford to buy such large quantities of rice at a time, and for this reason, the traders have demanded the government to roll back the hike in GST rates. The traders have said that each kilo of rice sold in retail now costs Rs 2-3 higher than it used to earlier. As a result of this, 25 kg bags can cost Rs 50-80 more than it did before, heavily impacting consumers. Since July 18, the GST councils decision of 5% tax on pre-packed, labelled food items like atta, paneer and curd came into force. After the 47th GST Council meeting chaired by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman was held with her state counterparts, an exemption list and list of imposed tax on a host of goods and services was released. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has defended the imposition of 5% tax on certain food items, saying that it was a unanimous decision taken in a meeting with states. She also said that the levying of tax on food items was practised even before GST came into force. It has been prescribed that GST on these goods shall apply when supplied in 'pre-packaged and labelled' commodities attracting the provisions of Legal Metrology Act. For example, items like pulses, cereals like rice, wheat, and flour, etc, earlier attracted GST @ 5% when branded and packed in a unit container. From 18.7.2022, these items would attract GST when 'pre-packaged and labelled', she had tweeted. Read: No GST on food items when sold loose: Nirmala Sitharaman

Emma's incarcerated boyfriend, Marcus Solomon, was also sentenced to 13 months. The judge said in his judgment, 'I can confess that you have fallen in love with the prisoner, but the jailer does his job with pride. When trust is abused in this manner, it is necessary that such persons should also be punished.' The same judge also said that the prisoners are using the phone even though Parliament has declared it a crime. Mobile phone smuggling has happened in big numbers. Due to cross-examination in court, it also emerged that there was a lot of talk between jailer Emma Johnson and prisoner Marcus Solomon. Marcus used to sell mobiles inside the jail after smuggling. The money earned from this went to Johnson's account. The messages of both were produced in the court, in which it was clear that both were talking about buying and selling different types of iPhones.

The Legend review: An expressionless Saravanan leads a cringe-fest

Review The movies plot is all about a billionaire scientist called Saravanan on a mission to find a cure for diabetes. But the cliches overtake the plot in every scene. Bharathy Singaravel Every Kollywood cliche to ever exist is on offer, at each turn. There are not one, but two loosu ponnu heroines (Geethika Tiwari and Urvashi Rautela). Neither of them can act very well, but no matter, theyre pale-skinned and thats all the industry demands. All the character-building required is to refer admiringly to one of the heroines as a suthamaana Tamil ponnu (a pure Tamil woman). And have her chase after a baby goat to sentimental music, while the foreign-return hero avidly watches on. The film is a hero vehicle for Saravanan Arul whos making his debut on the big screen. Saravanan belongs to the business family that founded the famous Saravana Stores chain. The son of Saravanan Selvarathinam, hes called 'The Legend Saravanan' and became a well-known face in Tamil Nadu after starring in ads for his The New Legend Saravana Stores. The chain of mega-shops along with the ads have become a part of the states mass cultural fabric, so the release of his film debut was surrounded by much curiosity. The Legend protagonist is a billionaire genius scientist. He and his family are practically treated like feudal overlords by the other villagers. They own several colleges across the state, and his goat-chasing love interest, played by Geethika Tiwari, teaches at one of them. The villain? An insulin baron who holds nefarious meetings with Russian and Chinese cohorts in an airplane hangar, while a woman plays Fr Elise on the piano. Oh, and this evil gang is all the way in Toronto, a helpful subtitle tells us. Wait a minute. Is this Tamil Padam 3? Is that what it is? Satire? Because Id give it points if it is. No? Dammit. Im at a loss for what this near three-hour torment actually is. Maybe a prolonged Saravana Stores ad given everyones outfits, mashed in with endless lectures about evil pharmaceutical companies. The most forthright description would be: The Legend is the result of someone utterly and unfathomably besotted with themself. The movies plot is all about a billionaire scientist called Saravanan on a mission to find a cure for diabetes. He will give this cure to the world for free. A noble venture, but why they nicked the Star Trek lab set pieces when its filmmakers werent looking, well never know. Saravanan is also, of course, a martial arts expert. He beats up baddies to the soundtrack Saravana saravedi. Alongside him, a host of well-known Kollywood names including Vivek, Prabhu, Livingston, Nasser, Robo Shankar and Yogi Babu, come and go. None of them can convince you to take this movie seriously, least of all the lead. Despite so many stars, the films weakest link is Saravanan himself. He is given dialogue after dialogue to desperately make a mass-hero of him. Every one of the lines comes out in monotone. Driftwood washed up on Marina beach would manage a wider emotional range than The Legends expressionless protagonist. Unfortunately, the said driftwood doesnt have a business empire at its disposal to fund a story that has the depth of a school play. At the intermission scene, predictably, a grand tragedy has occurred; a setback in the heros path. No one is surprised. Post interval too, every twist is hackneyed. Every passing minute escalates its cringe elements. Is something sad happening? It rains on cue. Does someone develop amnesia and recover at a pivotal moment? Indeed they do. Are there evil henchmen in weird masks slithering down ropes to kill the hero? Of course. Does the story suddenly jump from rural Tamil Nadu to somewhere-in-snow-covered Himalayas, with the barest of explanations? You already know the answer. At some point, youre wondering if directors JD-Jerry, best known for Ullaasam, are trolling the audience or the business-empire-princeling-turned-hopeful actor. Possibly both. Many Kollywood heroes get away with one or more of the above tropes. Mainly because they often have a marginally more cohesive storyline. That, and a fan-base built up over years I suppose. Also, all of them can act, at least sparingly. That is definitely a bonus. In TheLegend, its as if the businessman decided his money and a full-fledged Kollywood formula was enough to subject people to a film with himself in the lead. Any plot that exists is buried alive in formula-moments-by-the-second. Such as putting on display every possible stunt sequence Kollywood has conceived of over the years. To keep pace, Harris Jayrajs music desperately tries to inflate all the mass moments Saravanan desires. At a run-time of 2 hours 40 minutes, The Legend starts off laughable and quickly becomes unendurably grating. Opinions may differ, but even as a film so awful it could become iconically bad, it fails. It has its utterly charmless hero to thank for that.

Silicon Motion Announces SM8366 PCIe 5.0 x4 NVMe Controller and MonTitan SSD Solutions Platform for Enterprise Storage

In the lead up to the Flash Memory Summit next week, many vendors have started announcing their new products. Today, Silicon Motion is unveiling their first enterprise-focused PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD controllers set. These controllers find themselves embedded in a flexible turnkey solutions platform encompassing different EDSFF standards. A follow-up to the SM8266 introduced in November 2020 , the SM8366 and SM8308 belong to Silicon Motion's 3 rd Generation enterprise NVMe controller family. Silicon Motion's 3 rd Generation Enterprise SSD Controllers SM8366 SM8308 Host Interface PCIe 5.0 x4 / x2 (dual-port x2+x2 or x1+x1 capable) NAND Interface 16ch, 2400 MT/s 8ch, 2400 MT/s DRAM 2x 40-bit DDR4-3200 / DDR5-4800 (32-bit data + 8-bit ECC per channel) Max. SSD Capacity 128 TB Sequential Read 14 GB/s Sequential Write 14 GB/s Random Read 3 M IOPS Random Write 2.8 M IOPS Namespaces Up to 128, with a total of 1024 queue pairs Hyperscalers / cloud vendors require turnkey reference designs to quickly evaluate the capabilities of new controllers. In enterprise applications, the controller hardware is only half the story. The associated firmware / SDK, and user-programmability to enable customer differentiation are also key aspects. Keeping this in mind, Silicon Motion is also putting focus on the SM8366 reference design by giving it a separate moniker - MonTitan. The MonTitan platform refers to the turnkey design / firmware development platform based on the OCP Data Center NVMe SSD and NVMe 2.0 specifications. Hyperscalers can readily deploy the MonTitan platform into their infrastructure for evaluation, while datacenter SSD vendors can use it to make and market their own datacenter and enterprise SSDs. The platform is currently available in U.2, E1.S, and E3.S form-factors. Silicon Motion claims that the platform's ASIC and firmware combination architecture allows enabling of enterprise-level security without compromising on performance and QoS. Towards this, they are touting two key features - PerformaShape and NANDCommand. NVMe SSD controllers can present the SSD as multiple distinct storage volumes each with its own I/O queue to the host system (namespaces). The PerformaShape algorithm can optimize the SSD performance differently for each namespace using per-namespace user-defined QoS settings. Silicon Motion claims true hardware isolation in this case to deliver maximum bandwidth while ensuring that latency, QoS, and power targets are met / obeyed. The NANDCommand feature refers to Silicon Motion's use of real-time machine learning along with the LDPC engine to help with endurance (paritcularly important for QLC). The claimed performance numbers for the SM8366 controller can vary for specific designs depending on the NAND technology, number of dice, and form-factor power limitations. The company indicated that specific numbers for different form-factor reference designs will be announced later. Sampling is slated to begin in Q4 2022. Silicon Motion's press release shows the usual suspects providing supporting quotes - Micron, KIOXIA, and YMTC from amongst the NAND suppliers. Alibaba Cloud has also expressed interest in evaluating the platform, which bodes well for Silicon Motion's enterprise SSD controller efforts.

CM Bommai says Yogi model govt will start in Karnataka if situation demands

Politics As he completed one year in office on Thursday, the Chief Minister also gave a hundred out of hundred score for his government's performance. PTI Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Thursday said, if the situation demands, the Yogi model government that exists in Uttar Pradesh will come into force in the southern state too to deal with anti-national and communal elements that are trying to create unrest. As he completed one year in office on Thursday, the Chief Minister also gave a hundred out of hundred score for his government's performance.For the situation in Uttar Pradesh, Yogi (Adityanath) is the right Chief Minister. Similarly, there are different methods to deal with the situation in Karnataka and all of them are being used. If the situation demands, Yogi model government will come in Karnataka too, Bommai said. He was responding to a question on demands by a section of BJP and Sangh Parivar supporters, who have turned their angst against the state government accusing it of not standing up to protect the lives of Hindu workers, calling for a Yogi model of governance in Karnataka, following the murder of a party Yuva Morcha member in Dakshina Kannada. According to them, the 'Yogi model' refers to strong measures reportedly taken by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to control anti-national activities in the northern state, which include the use of bulldozers against such elements and mafia. In the wake of the murder a party activist in Dakshina Kannada district, Bommai had cancelled events organised on Thursday, July 28 to mark his government's one year, and BJP's three years in office, that included 'Janotsava', a mega rally at Doddaballapur that was scheduled to be attended by BJP national President J P Nadda. Praveen Nettaru, a zilla BJP Yuva Morcha committee member, was hacked to death in front of his broiler shop in Bellare in the coastal district by three bike-borne men on Tuesday night. Noting that the government has taken the murder case seriously and an inquiry is on, Bommai said, Five teams have been formed and teams have been sent to Kerala and officials are on their job. We are confident that culprits will be arrested and punished soon as it happened in the Harsha murder case in Shivamogga earlier this year. There will be no compromise with regards to maintaining law and order, and we have announced a war against organised crime by anti-national and communal forces, and the results of it will be known to people, he said, as he appealed to people for peace. Stating that there are certain challenges before the government with respect to maintaining communal harmony and in eliminating forces that want to disturb it, Bommai said this challenge exists in states across the country and such forces have raised their heads in Karnataka in the last 10 years.Their activities significantly began in the state in 2014-15 and have continued till now. Our police officers have managed to identify 'sleeper cells' and those involved in such activities or give support to such elements have been sent to jail with the help of NIA, he said pointing out various such arrests that have taken place recently. Asked whether the good work of his government was overshadowed by such communal issues amid a growing feeling among some sections about the administration's alleged inaction in handling them, the Chief Minister pointed at quick and strong measures taken during such incidents in the past, and said similar measures will follow in this case too. He also said his government has effectively and efficiently dealt with communally sensitive issues and challenges in the recent past and have been marching on the path of development. To a question regarding banning organisations like PFI and SDPI, Bommai said it has to be done by the central government, and when the state governments attempted to do it in the past, it was stayed by the courts.We have sent required reports and evidence necessary for banning such organisations to the Centre, the process has begun, and at the earliest you will hear a decision on this from the Centre. The ban has to be done across the country, he said. Meanwhile, the CM announced that he will be travelling on Thursday to Mangaluru and heading straight to Bellare village, where the BJP Yuva Morcha member Praveen Nettaru was hacked to death on the night of July 26. However, there is no talk of him visiting the house of 18-year-old B Masood, who was seriously injured following assault by eight persons at Kalanja village in Sullia taluk on July 20, and subsequently succumbed at a hospital in Mangaluru the next day.

The Banyan turns the spotlight on art by people with mental health conditions

Art Titled A brush with madness, the exhibition displaying the works of Boston-based artist Preetha Mahadevan will be at Chennais Apparao Galleries. Saradha U Twitter/ KanimozhiDMK Preetha Mahadevan, an artist who lives with bipolar disorder, shares that she found painting therapeutic. She finds the soothing colours and calming patterns in her abstract bursts soothing during depression. And during her manic episodes, she says she gravitates towards stories of communities and environment. Her latest exhibition, which is currently being displayed at Chennais Apparao Galleries, includes 20 paintings. Titled A brush with madness, the exhibition displaying the work of Preetha, who is also an architect and baker, was launched by Member of Parliament Kanimozhi Karunanidhi on July 24. US Consul General Chennai, Judith Ravin, anthropologist Andrew Willford from Cornell University, and Vice-president of HCL Technologies Srimathi Shivshankar were also present at the event. Preetha tells TNM that she turned to art-based therapy in 2019. When I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and an eating disorder, there were different forms of therapy that I could undertake. I was more drawn towards art-based therapy and I ended up painting everyday. Despite being allergic to paints, I continued going there. The experience was very powerful, says Preetha. Soon, she turned to digital paintings and shared her artwork on social media everyday, and also shared it with friends with similar interests. Some of the Boston-based artists paintings view human life from the perspective of birds and question whether humans have made the planet co-habitable for other species. Others reflect on the concept of judgement such as what would happen if the moment when a human being passes a judgement against another belonging to a social minority for being different could be frozen. Launch event of 'A brush with madness'. Credit: The Banyan Giving space to art by people with mental health conditions Preetha, who got acquainted with Vandana Gopikumar, co-founder of The Banyan, by sharing her work on social media, got the opportunity to be associated with the organisation for this exhibition. The Banyan, a non-governmental organisation, is widely known for providing mental health services in institutional as well as community settings for people coming from distressed situations such as homelessness and poverty. The Banyan has a slate of projects such as A Brush with Madness, that will include poetry, photography, prose, paintings, and testimonials from persons living with mental health issues and members of minority communities. Vandana explained how showcasing my work in Chennai could inspire persons living with mental health conditions who might want to pursue art professionally or as a hobby, or turn to art-based therapy. It can be a very transformative journey for a lot of people, Preetha adds. Preethas work has been identified as a part of art brut or outside art - art movements - founded by 19th century sculptor and painter Jean Debuffet. Jean Debuffes art brut movement was based in his affinity towards art by psychiatric patients, prisoners, and children, which did not fall in line with the established aesthetic norms of the time. Sixty of Preethas paintings have been included as a part of a coffee table book that goes by the same title as the exhibition, and 20 of her paintings are being exhibited at Nungambakkams Apparao Galleries. Preethas exhibition - A brush with Madness - is just the first in what The Banyan hopes to make into a larger series called Musings of the Mind which will include more exhibitions, poetry, spoken word, and other art by different people in the future. The series is based principles of Jeans art movement which highlight the aesthetic and artistic sensibilities of artists living with mental health conditions. Initially, Preetha was wary of having her work associated with the phrase, a brush with madness, which is often used in association with painter Vincent Van Goghs works. But I decided to let go of that fear. The brush is metaphorically used to refer to the duration of time here. So, we all collectively decided to go with this title, she says. , @banyanbalm , 'Musings of Mind' .

I believe that the moment there is some energy in the art, there is a difference. In this case, Preetha using painting as a form of therapy was an added angle and falls in line with the art brut movement. I have also been wanting to team up with The Banyan for quite some time. I was travelling all over the world, looking at art of this nature, and wanting to find similar kinds of programmes here. This was the perfect time to team up and the experience was serendipitous, she remarks. For a long time, we have been attempting to build a repository of lived experiences from the global south, Vandana explains. If you look at international declarations or policies, they are all inspired by the lives of English-speaking, privileged people, and lack the granularity that we feel people living with mental health and psychosocial disabilities, as well as persons from minority communities deserve. The artwork and performances featured in the Musings of the Mind series will eventually be documented and consolidated into a Museum of the Mind, along the lines of the ones that already exist in London. The Bethlem Museum of the Mind, which showcases the history of Bethlem Royal Hospital, hosts exhibitions of contemporary artists who are current or former patients. This project is currently being developed by The Banyan along with experts like Sanjeev Jain and Pratima Murthy from the Department of Psychiatry at NIMHANS, and psychiatrists Alok Sarin and Anirudh Kala. One on hand, it will be focusing on the journey of psychiatry and how mental hospitals have transitioned. On the other hand, it will act as a reflection of the progress and evolution of marginalised voices who will be able to use art forms such as poetry, spoken word, books, etc. as expression pathways, Vandana adds. Preethas artwork will be on display at Apparao Galleries, Wallace Garden 3rd street, Nungambakkam, till July 28 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm.

Indias lone certified flag making unit is on an indefinite strike: Here's why

Protest The flag making unit in Hubballi had anticipated orders worth nearly eight times more than what the unit currently has. This is because of a recent decision by the Union government. Samrah Attar Anticipating the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav campaign to commemorate 75 years of independent India, the Karnataka Khadi Gramodyoga Samyukta Sangha (KKGSS) at Bengeri in Hubballi began weaving the national flag with full throttle. Much to their dismay, the Central government amended the 2002 Flag Code of India, which now allows for the manufacturing of polyester flags. Earlier, the code allowed for only handwoven wool/cotton/silk khadi flags. But the new amendment allows not only machine made cloth for the flag, but also polyester material. Usually, around this time, the KKGSS is busy shipping out the tricolour for independence day. This July however, it has been busy protesting, as it has seen its orders dwindling. KKGSS along with the Congress began an indefinite protest in Hubballi from July 27. They're protesting against the amendment to the flag code which allows the use of polyester cloth along with khadi. Since the polyester material is fairly cheaper in comparison to khadi, KKGSS fears a shortage of orders and major loss in income. Following the Har Ghar Tiranga (Tricolour in every home), the unit rightly expected a surge of orders. However, the unit hasnt even received half the amount of orders that they otherwise receive. KKGSS is the only flag manufacturing unit recognised by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in the country. Their demand is simple, that the flag amendment dated December 30, 2021, be revoked. The amendment says, The Flag Code of India, 2002 was amended vide Order dated 30, December, 2021 and National Flag made of polyester or machine made Flag have been allowed. Now, the National Flag shall be made of hand spun and hand woven or machine made, cotton/polyester/wool/silk khadi bunting. The words 'machine made' and 'polyester' were not included in the 2002 code. Despite the amendment being passed in December, the amendment came to the notice of KKGSS only in March 2022. The Indian Bureau of Standards strictly regulates the handwoven and hand-stitched flags making. From its dimensions, weaving, folding and stitching, everything has been clearly specified and KKGSS abides by religiously since its BIS certification in 2004. The amendment will also mean that there will be no insistence on manufacturing them at a BIS certified unit. Former minister umashree visits the flag making unit The unit had anticipated at least Rs 8-10 crore worth of flags because of the independence day campaign. However, we have already observed a drop in orders and have only received orders worth Rs 1.2 crore. Earlier we received orders worth at least Rs 2.5 crore. We have written letters to the Chief Minister, Home Minister, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi, and others after we learned of this amendment, but we have not received any response, the Secretary of KKGSS, Shivanand Mathapati told TNM. If the government wanted cheaper flags, they could have asked us to make flags out of single thread khadi cloth. Why was there a need to pass an amendment allowing polyester flags, we dont understand, he further added. KKGSS has units in different parts of the country. Around 600 workers are employed at the Bengeri unit in Hubballi. Combined with the Bagalkot unit, the KKGSS employs roughly 1,300 employees, all of whose livelihoods will now be impacted by the amendment. Most of the employees at KKGSS are women and while some employees such as the managers earn an average of Rs 10,000 a month, the weavers, spinners, and tailors earn daily wages and receive an average of Rs 4,000 a month. The Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav and Har Ghar Tiranga campaign had revived hope in the workers. Like every other business, the pandemic hit KKGSS hard as well. The unit suffered huge losses due to a lack of orders, resulting in earnings of the workers being reduced. The whole country knows the significance of khadi in this country, unlike the ordinary polyester. We have a history associated with it and a certain amount of respect comes with it. We do not know any other work, but were very proud of what we do because even if we earn less, we like working here. The government takes money from us in the form of several taxes such as GST and keeps raising the prices of essentials, all the while decreasing our salaries. We were very happy thinking the surge in orders will solve our financial burdens, but theyve put an axe on our feet by making this move, said Rehana Ballary, who has been working as a tailor with the KKGSS for 18 years. Annapurna Doddamani has also been employed with KKGSS for 18 years and works as a manager. Speaking to TNM, she said, Since polyester is cheaper, no one will buy our flags and we will all lose our livelihoods. Without work, many of us will also become homeless. The polyester flags will simply be thrown out after using it for one day, there is no respect associated with it. Despite the low wages, we work here because we feel that we are contributing to the country. According to Mathapathi, close to 500 people showed up for the protest. Former minister and actress, Umashree also attended the protest in solidarity. She spoke about how the demand for polyester flags is way too high to be fulfilled by Indian mills alone and the flags will have to be imported. The RSS supports this because their ideals about India are completely different, so why would they be concerned about the Indian flag? This was not what Gandhiji had envisioned for India. Our flag reflects India, and tampering with it hurts the sentiments of any real patriot, she told the media.

Apples M2 MacBooks no longer have any sign of Intel inside

The transition from Intel to Apple processors started more than two years ago, but it turns out that the CPU and GPU werent all that Apple was replacing. As the new M2 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro show, Apple is going all-in with its its own chips. In an iFixit teardown earlier this month of the new MacBook Air, iFixit calls out, A seemingly Apple-made Thunderbolt 3 driver, instead of the Intel chips were familiar with. Turns out that that driver replaces the last vestige of Intel chips used by Apple in its laptops, according to a tweet by @SkyJuice60. (@SkyJuice60s Twitter bio states that it is the founder of Angstronomics , which covers the semiconductor industry.) No more Intel Inside! @iFixit reveals Apple finally replaced the last vestige of Intel in their M2 MacBooks. Gone are Intel's JHL8040R USB4 retimers, replaced by a pair of custom U09PY3 retimers! pic.twitter.com/YwYet9YxDl SkyJuice (@SkyJuice60) July 25, 2022 It appears that the new MacBook Air is the first Apple laptop to feature these new Thunderbolt drivers. Other laptops still use Intel drivers, such as the 14-inch MacBook Pro, according to an iFixit teardown . But chances are Apple will be using its own drivers in the M2 updates to the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro that may be arriving in just a few short months. Not all of the chips in the MacBook Air are made by Apple. The company is still using chips from Texas Instruments, Nexperia, and Samsung, among others. These chips are smaller than the CPU, GPU, and Thunderbolt driver, so its unlikely that Apple would not be interested in replacing all of them. But as the Thunderbolt drivers show, the Apple silicon transition is about both big and small chips alike.

Monkeypox: Homophobic posters crop up in Alappuzha, LGBTQIA+ activists debunk them

LGBTQIA+ The homophobic posters are spreading misinformation in the name of protecting family values. Azeefa Fathima Image for representation Trigger warning: Homophobia, queerphobia Homophobic posters cropped up overnight in Keralas Alappuzha, on Sunday, July 24, the same day a rationalist group organised a pride march here. The posters put up by anonymous persons are not only homophobic but also provide unscientific information about the spread of monkeypox by placing the blame on LGBTQIA+ persons. Under the guise of Pride Awareness Campaign and protecting family values, the posters are in reality regressive and hateful. In one, a man and a woman (supposedly parents) are shown holding an umbrella over two little children, preventing rainbow coloured rain from falling over them (that is, protecting them from the rainbow colors that are associated with pride). In another illustration, a hand that looks like that of a devils holds a rainbow passing through it. Both of these posters have a question: Why give the name of nature to perversion? Other posters included clippings of news about monkeypox vaccines being offered to gay and bisexual men in some countries and about the spread of certain sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). One poster says, The latest communicable disease monkeypox is also present in homosexuals. (sic) Racism and homophobia This last poster especially carries dangerous messaging around LGBTQIA+ persons, particularly gay and bisexual people, despite multiple science and medical professionals saying that monkeypox is not an STD, not particular to gay individuals, and in fact, is a disease that spreads through touch and contact. Ashish Jose Ambat, a scientist and pharma researcher who is openly queer, explains that monkeypox is caused by the monkeypox virus, which belongs to the orthopoxvirus genus in the family poxviridae virus, the primary host of which happens to be monkeys, and has been reported in multiple countries over years. This was first reported in humans in Africa in the 1970s, and only caused concern when it came to the west in 2003 in the US. As long as it was limited to Africa, not much attention was given to it, which shows apparent racism in negating health policy concerns of undeveloped countries by western countries. Since the 1970s, there have been multiple outbreaks, Ashish said. While the WHO did point out initially that monkeypox seems to be affecting men having sex with men more than others initially, it (and other international organisations like the UN) later clarified that that it is not a disease that particularly affects people of a certain sexuality, or only spreads through them. Some cases have been identified through sexual health clinics in communities of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men. It is important to note that the risk of monkeypox is not limited to men who have sex with men. Anyone who has close contact with someone who is infectious is at risk, the WHO said in an advisory on May 25. Stigmatising people because of a disease is never ok. Anyone can get or pass on monkeypox, regardless of their sexuality, it added. Monkeypox is not an STD As the WHO suggests, it could be that the disease is being identified among gay or bi men more because of testing in sexual health clinics. A New York Times interview with Gregg Gonsalves, an Associate Professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health offers another explanation: that in this outbreak, a person who had monkeypox attended a gay rave (a party), and the spread happened in that social and sexual network. That does not make monkeypox a gay disease or an STD (one that spreads through exchange or contact with bodily fluids like semen) - it is simply one that spreads through physical contact, and according to some scientists, usually a longer duration of contact rather unlike, say, just brushing past someone or a hug. The latter may not be zero risk, but is being seen as low risk. The physical contact here need not be sexual contact because this isn't a sexually transmitted disease. It can be any close proximity interactions, like social gatherings, touching objects, fabrics and surfaces that have been used by someone with monkeypox. The risk is highest when there is direct contact with a monkeypox patients rash or scabs, Ashish said. Right now, most people who tested positive for the virus happen to be queer and that is what the data is based on. Vaccination is also being done. Monkeypox is a contagious and self-limiting disease, and does not have high mortality. But this homophobia, racism, and bigotry might lead to complications wherein a person does not disclose in case of an infection, fearing stigma, they explained. There is also research to show that the current rise in monkeypox cases could be related to the global waning of orthopoxvirus immunity. This is because smallpox vaccinations, which also gave immunity against monkeypox, were stopped after the disease was declared eradicated in the 1980s. However, framing monkeypox as a disease affecting persons of a particular sexuality may end up further marginalising and restigmatising a group of people and prevent them from seeking medical attention, and accessing precautions, therapeutics, and healthcare. It's also important to remember that diseases that ARE sexually transmitted infections don't necessarily only spread through sex. They can spread through a handful of other activities, typically those that involve blood. In the case of HSV, contact between lesions and open skin. jess kant (@jessdkant) July 23, 2022 The classification of STIs themselves may in fact be an issue, as it takes something without moral value, infection, and assigns it moral value in the context of a society which is incapable of admitting that people like to have sex and that that's a completely fine thing to do. jess kant (@jessdkant) July 23, 2022 But when we behave and frame conversations as if MPX is an STI, and STIs have always been historically blamed on two groups: sex workers and LGBT people, we set the stage for a group or handful of groups to receive the rage of a burned out population looking for someone to blame. jess kant (@jessdkant) July 23, 2022 The overemphasis on zoonotic spillover early in the COVID-19 pandemic was not a useful way of passing information. It was a way of finding someone to blame. It was, to be crystal clear: white supremacy alleviating itself of the blame for a virus it would later fail to control. jess kant (@jessdkant) July 23, 2022 Homophobic groups are already joining groomer rhetoric with monkeypox misinformation, and this will bring us 40 years back to GRID.Gay-related immune deficiency was a name given to HIV that allowed the larger population to treat HIV+ people as pariahs and let them die. jess kant (@jessdkant) July 23, 2022 Stigma against particular communities endangers them Transgender rights activist Sreemayi says that the posters cropped up on the same day as the pride event conducted by Essense Global (a rationalist group) in Alappuzha. The WHO announced that most of the cases have been reported in gay and bisexual men, which I understand could have been due to the outbreak at an LGBTQIA+ event. We should understand that anyone can get infected but it just happened to start spreading amongst the queer people. So, in the name of a disease, they are trying to ostracize and discriminate against a community of people. At this point, we should also remember how COVID-19 patients were treated at the beginning of the pandemic and the social stigma associated they faced, she says. Gay rights activist Unais likens the misinformation being spread against LGBTQIA+ people in the case of monkeypox to the targeted attack over members of Tablighi Jamaat as well as Muslims in 2020 over the spread of COVID-19 at a Jamaat event. Now, it does not mean that only Muslims who attend that event get the disease or that they are the ones who spread the disease. Similarly, the Nipah outbreak happened in Kozhikode. Does it mean that only people from Kozhikode will get infected? he asks. Sreemayi also points out that there is no mention of a name or organisation in the offending posters. This means that someone wants to mislead the society but they dont want people to know that they are the ones misleading, she adds. Unais also points out that this homophobic poster campaign is similar to the recent online seminar conducted by the Kannur womens wing of Jamat-e-Islami, where comparisons were made between homosexuality and paedophilia, and it was said that transgender persons are mentally ill. Only this time, we dont know who is behind the posters, he adds. He also points out that another class was held for Kannur medical college students by a queerphobic Muslim group. He says that the reason behind the repetition of such instances is that there is no concrete police action or any action taken against people spreading false information and hatred. No police action or repercussions encourages them to continue doing it. When I tried to file a police complaint in a similar incident, I couldnt because of financial and personal reasons. That is the condition of the legal system, which does not facilitate filing a complaint, he adds. Unais also questions if people would have a similar outlook if a disease was reported primarily among heterosexual people: Would those be labelled heterosexual diseases? The WHO, on July 23, declared monkeypox a public health emergency of international concern, and added that for the moment this is an outbreak that is concentrated among men who have sex with men, especially those with multiple sexual partners. However, it also warned against discrimination and stigma against a particular people. Meanwhile, UNAIDS has also expressed concern about language used while reporting and writing about monkeypox that reinforce homophobic and racist stereotypes and exacerbate stigma. UNAIDS Deputy Executive Director Matthew Kavanagh, in a press statement, said, Stigma and blame undermine trust and capacity to respond effectively during outbreaks like this one. Experience shows that stigmatising rhetoric can quickly disable evidence-based response by stoking cycles of fear, driving people away from health services, impeding efforts to identify cases, and encouraging ineffective, punitive measures. We appreciate the LGBTI community for having led the way on raising awareness and we reiterate that this disease can affect anyone. (With inputs from Geetika Mantri)

TNM Staff The price of petrol was increased 78 times and the prices of diesel went up 76 times in Delhi in the financial year 2021-22, according to a governments response to Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha in Parliament. Raghav Chadha had tabled a question to the Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas asking the number of times the prices of petrol and diesel were increased in the past and current fiscal year by the government. The response was given by Minister of State in the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas Rameswar Teli, on Monday July 25, in which he stated that the prices of petrol and diesel have been made market-determined with effect from June 26, 2010, and October 19, 2014, respectively. Since then, the Public Sector Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) take appropriate decisions on pricing of petrol and diesel. Further, Public Sector OMCs have implemented daily revision of retail selling price (RSP) of petrol and diesel in the entire country with effect from June 16, 2017, he said. He further provided details about the number of instances the prices of petrol and diesel increased/decreased at Delhi during the financial year 2021-22. According to it, the price of petrol has been increased 78 times, decreased only seven times and remained the same 280 times. Similarly, the price of diesel has increased 76 times, decreased 10 times and remained the same for 279 times in that year. Proceedings in Parliament on Monday remained paralysed for the sixth day as the stalemate over the Opposition's demand for immediate discussions on price rise and GST hike in both Houses deepened, with four Congress members getting suspended in Lok Sabha for the rest of the session for causing disruptions. Four Congress members who have been suspended are Manickam Tagore, TN Prathapan, Jothimani and Ramya Haridas. Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha saw repeated adjournments as opposition members stuck to their demand for suspending all business and holding an immediate discussion on price rise and GST hike while the government maintained that it was ready to discuss the issue once Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman recovers from COVID-19. Since the start of the Monsoon session of Parliament on July 18, opposition parties, including the Congress, have been protesting against price rise and various other issues.

Bajrang Dal mob disrupts college party at Mangaluru pub, chases out students

Violence The incident evoked dark reminders of the infamous 2009 Mangaluru pub attack, as the mob targeted the same venue which is now being run under a different name. Prajwal Bhat Bajrang Dal members disrupted a party organised by a group of college students at a pub in Mangaluru late on Monday, saying it violates Indian culture. The same venue was attacked by the Sri Rama Sene in January 2009 when it was run under a different name. While it is not yet clear if there was any physical violence in Monday's incident, the 2009 pub attack created headlines after videos surfaced showing Sri Rama Sene activists brutally assaulting and molesting women revellers. In Monday's vigilante attack, Bajrang Dal members arrived at the 'Recycle, The Lounge' pub around 8 pm, sources said, after they were tipped off about a farewell party held by students of St. Aloysius College. The Hindutva activists arrived at the pub and asked the partying students to leave immediately and hurled abuses at them, an eyewitness told TNM. Videos of the incident were shared on social media and one video showed Bajrang Dal members heckling the students as they rushed out of the pub. Bevarsi, party malpera? (Drunkards, you want to party!), one of the members was heard shouting at women as they hurriedly left. This attack is being touted as a response to a viral video which emerged last week showing two youngsters kissing inside a private apartment while their friends cheered. Last week, a video of students from St. Aloysius college doing a 'lip lock' challenge went viral. Now, the students of the same college had a party. (Bajrang Dal) members informed the (police) department and the party was stopped, Sharan Pumpwell, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) secretary in Mangaluru said. Pumpwell was one of the state's top Bajrang Dal leaders in his youth and still plays the role of a senior mentor. Although there are videos of the incident clearly showing the intrusion by the Bajrang Dal, the police had an entirely different take on things and claimed that they broke up the fracas. They said that when they had reached the pub, it was shutting down and the students were already outside. They then dispersed the Bajrang Dal members and the students from the area, police sources said.At around 8 pm yesterday, in a pub called Recycle in North police station limits near Balmatta area, there was an incident wherein some media persons were informed by some persons claiming to be belonging to some organisations that in Recycle pub, some illegal activities are taking place and it will have to be stopped, Mangaluru Police Commissioner Shashi Kumar said in a statement.Police have also got the information about this and have visited the spot. By then the pub was closing and about 20 boys and 10 girls were also leaving the pub. Some videos have surfaced where some boys and girls are leaving the pub and some men are standing in the parking area, the police commissioner's statement added. Raghavendra M, the police inspector of Mangaluru North police station declined to comment on the incident. Police investigation is underway though no action has been taken yet over the incident. The incident comes days after the Vishwa Hindu Parishad issued a statement alleging students in a reputed college in Mangaluru were running a 'drugs and sex mafia'. A poster with the same message was circulated widely online on July 22. Last week, a group of students from St Aloysius college were booked under the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act after a video surfaced on social media showing two youngsters kissing inside a private apartment while their friends cheered. According to the police, the video is from six months ago and the students were playing a game of 'truth or dare'. A video of the incident was shared on social media last week. The disruption at Recycle, The Lounge on Monday night was reminiscent of the 2009 pub attack in Mangaluru in which Sri Rama Sene members barged into a pub called Amnesia in Mangaluru and began assaulting the women inside. Recycle pub is located where the Amnesia pub previously was in the Balmatta area of the city. The men could clearly be seen slapping the women inside, dragging them out by their hair and brutally assaulting them in broad daylight. The attack was caught on camera and beamed to millions of televisions across India, shocking the country. Yet, nine years after the attack, Sri Rama Sene founder Pramod Muthalik and 30 others accused in the case were acquitted by a Mangaluru court due to lack of evidence.
