Flipkart made IIM-A rejig its norms for recruiters! May 30, 2016 13:31

The Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A) is planning to bring new norms for the recruiters, after disappointing them, with Flipkart, the e-commerce major.Flipkart, in the last week, had decided to postpone the joining dates of 18 new recruits, by six months. Speaking on the issue, Asha Kaul, Chairperson, Placement Committee - IIM-A, said, “For the first time, such a long deferment of joining date has happened. We are planning to review our policies for the recruiters and make suitable additions.  The placement committee will meet after the internships of the students are over. We will consult with the faculty and students and firm up recruitment norms to be shared with future recruiters.”IIM-A further sought Flipkart to raise the compensation amount for the deferment. But the e-commerce player, who has decided to offer Rs. 1.5 lakh as joining bonus, is in no mood to change its stand.Speaking about the current relation between IIM-A and Flipkart, Kaul said, “there is nothing like IIM-A versus Flipkart. Had this letter not been leaked, the matter would have been resolved amicably. Decisions on corporate restructuring are not taken overnight. Even if they had an inkling of the same they should have given the students a heads up.”Kaul considers Flipkart issue as a sectoral phenomenon than an isolated case of the company. After the issue was out into the public, several other companies have started approaching the students , offering big. “More than the financials, what matters is the roles from student’s choice. Flipkart or no Flipkart, the students are bright enough to rise to unprecedented heights,” Kaul said. By Phani Ch

Amit Shah proposes BJP-TRS alliance May 30, 2016 12:23

If the TRS party approaches us, we would consider an alliance with it, BJP national president, Amit Shah says.Shah said that, the BJP is confident of emerging as a strong force in Telangana by 2019, adding that, the party does not have any understanding with the TRS party,  as of yet.In the recent times, it is known that, BJP and TDP were involved in a tight rift, making one speculate that, the duo parties would no longer continue the alliance. But to the shock of many, Shah said that, the party would continue the alliance with TDP. But when he was questioned about the special status to Andhra Pradesh, he said, there are several technical and administrative issues, that are acting as the hurdles to special status. “We are trying to do what all is possible. Otherwise also, the NDA government is committed to extending all support to AP in the same spirit,” he stressed.Answering to the question, that Modi government is neglecting the drought ridden AP and TS, Shah clarified that the Centre is taking all steps to lend a helping hand to the Telugu states. “We have sought all reports from each of the states and even held discussions with the respective CMs. Funds were also released. Unlike the Congress which used to hold meetings for namesake and then wash its hands off, our government is seriously addressing the issue from each state’s point of view,” Shah said.By Phani Ch

Gayle to reach his 76 out of 38 balls, had eight sixes and four boundaries, putting on 114 runs for the opening wicket with Kohli in 10.3 overs.Kohli too contributed 54, but the failure of de Villiers and wickets at regular intervals in the latter stage left them short.David Warner, for Hyderabad, has scored his 9th fifty of this IPL season and became the second batsman, after Kohli, to score above 800 in one IPL season. He contributed 69 off 38 balls, which included three sixes and eight boundaries, and thus totaled to 848. But Kohli failed to breach 1000-run mark to finish at 973.SRH opted to bat first, by giving the team a fiery start with his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan, who scored 28 off 25 balls, with a six and three fours.  Brief scores: Sunrisers Hyderabad 208/7 (Warner 69, Cutting 39*; Jordan 3/45) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore 200/7 (Gayle 76, Kohli 54; Cutting 2/35) by eight runs.  By Phani Ch

Don’t you have shame?: Harish Rao questions Revuri May 30, 2016 09:59

Telangana Irrigation Minister, Harish Rao, has countered TDP leader Revuri Prakash Reddy, upon his comments at Mahanadu.During the annual programme of TDP- Mahanadu, Revuri Prakash Reddy said that, the Telangana government should take the permissions from Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, YSRCP Chief Jagan Mohan Reddy and state Congress Chief, Raghuveera Reddy.Countering these statements, Irrigation Minister in his identical style, has jolted Revuri saying that, the TDP leader should at least have some minimum shame to utter such baseless words. “For the projects in Telangana, the government needs the support of the state people and nobody else. It is unfortunate that, Revuri is not aware of even this simple logic,” Harish Rao said.Also read: Quality Kakatiya is in their hands- Harish RaoTDP and Congress parties are trying to turn as a hurdle for the development of the state and is threatened to lose their existence, if the Telangana projects get completed. Right from the day, Telangana government is concentrating on the water projects, in some or the other way, the opposition parties are trying to create hurdle and this war is turning uglier day by day. However, the government is keen on completing all the projects as scheduled, without compromising on the quality. If that happens, there would be no stop to the TRS government in the state for the good number of years.By Phani Ch

Krishi Kalyan cess from June 1st May 30, 2016 08:00

As a part of the Union Budget, Krishi Kalyan Cess, which is said to be imposed on all the taxable services, will come into effect from June 1st. NDA government in the last year, had imposed Swachh Bharat cess of 0.5% on service tax, to fund Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a pet project of the Prime Minister. Later in the year, the government has hiked the service tax from 12.36 to 15% (including the two cesses). The parliamentary standing committee on finance, recently said that, the money collected by way of cess was not being utilized for the designated purpose. The Krishi Kalyan Cess of 0.5%, will now hike the costs of the several services like beauty salons, spas, gyms, courier services, credit and debit card-related services, chartered accounts, architects, insurance and demands raised by real estate builders for housing projects, among others. Imposing cess is the major route, through which Modi government is trying to generate the revenue, when required. It has been claiming the credit for accepting 14th Finance Commission recommendations, to increase states’ share in Central taxes by 10% to a record 42%. Even then, the Central government does not share the revenue earned through cess with the states, claiming that revenue from cess, will be used for financing initiatives to improve agriculture and for the welfare of farmers.

Air pollution accumulate deposits in the arteries which may lead to heart disease May 28, 2016 17:50

Air pollution is one of the leading causes of death and it comes as no surprise that it raises the risk of heart diseases especially worsening the risk factors, in diabetics.A recent decade-long study following the lives of over 6,000 US residents has shed some new light on the subject, revealing the way that people living in areas with “higher” levels of outdoor air pollution “accumulate deposits in the arteries that supply the heart faster than with the people living in less polluted areas.”“The study provides important new information on how pollution affects the main biological process that leads to heart disease,” commented Dr Joel Kaufman, who directs MESA Air and is the lead author of the published paper. “The evidence supports worldwide efforts to reduce exposures to ambient air pollutants.”“This was the most in-depth study of air pollution exposures ever applied to a large study group specifically designed to examine influences on cardiovascular health.”“The effects were seen even in the United States where efforts to reduce exposure have been notably successful, compared with many other parts of the world,” Kaufman continued.“Exposures were low when compared to US ambient air quality standards, which permit an annual average PM2.5 concentration of 12 µg/m3. The participants in this MESA-Air study experienced concentrations between 9.2 and 22.6 µg/m3.”“We found an association between air pollution exposure in the intermediate term and undesirable changes in cholesterol,” said study first author Maayan Yitshak Sade, of Ben-Gurion University and Soroka University Medical Centre in Israel.“This suggests that cumulative exposure to air pollution over the course of a lifetime could lead to elevated risk of cardiovascular disease,” Sade added.“While air pollution is linked with relatively small changes in cardiometabolic risk factors, the continuous nature of exposure and the number of people affected gives us cause for concern,” said senior study author Dr Victor Novack, also of Soroka University Medical Centre and Ben-Gurion University.By Premji

Scientist found, 1,200 light-years away. habitable planet Kepler-62f May 28, 2016 15:47

According to US researchers, a planet which is about 1,200 light-years away from Earth and 40 per cent larger than its size may be habitable. Kepler-62f, which is in the direction of the constellation Lyra, is within the range of planets that are likely to be rocky and possibly could have oceans."At that size, Kepler-62f is within the range of planets that are likely to be rocky and possibly could have oceans," said Aomawa Shields, lead author and an astrophysics postdoctoral fellow.“We found there are multiple atmospheric compositions that allow it to be warm enough to have surface liquid water. This makes it a strong candidate for a habitable planet,” said Aomawa Shields from UCLA.NASA's Kepler mission has discovered the planetary system that includes Kepler-62f in 2013 and has identified Kepler-62f as the outermost of five planets orbiting a star that is smaller and cooler than the Sun.Carbon dioxide makes up 0.04 percent of the earth’s atmosphere. Since, Kepler-62f is much farther away from its star than Earth is from the Sun, it would need to have dramatically more carbon dioxide to be warm enough to maintain liquid water on its surface and to keep from freezing.The team of scientists ran computer simulations and found many scenarios that allow it to be habitable, assuming different amounts of carbon dioxide in its atmosphere. The scientists made their calculations of the shape of the planet's possible orbital path using an existing computer model called HNBody. The research was published online in the journal Astrobiology."This will help us understand how likely certain planets are to be habitable over a wide range of factors, for which we don't yet have data from telescopes," she noted.By Premji
