Tips to choose right jewellery for monsoon August 03, 2015 15:05

Usually during monsoon season, moisture and humidity levels will be high and this may damage your jewellery. So, experts advise to go for plastic jewellery items that come in bright and vibrant colours. Also they suggest avoiding metallic jewellery during monsoon. Here are some simple tips that help in choosing correct jewellery. Avoid wearing delicate jewellery as much as possible in the rain as this can cause some metals to tarnish. Choose plastic jewellery that comes in bright and vibrant colours. It is advised not to prefer more accessories during this season. Prefer wearing one bright neck piece, a broad bangle or a long earring to keep you comfortable and also stylish. If you choose wearing long earrings, keep your neck bare or wear a chunky neck piece and pair it with a small stud or ear cuff.Broad bangles and watches with multi-coloured big dials or watches with coloured straps are also great ideas as they alone cover a greater portion of your hand and also make you look trendy. Try to choose water proof jewellery during this season. Metals like gold and platinum don't require a lot of care, but choose wearing simple ones. Silver jewellery has a tendency of turning black and in monsoon it is more prone to corrosion. So, try to avoid them. By Lizitha

As the title says, Srimanthudu has a good number of family scenes. Mahesh is once seen as a younger brother to Keerthi Reddy in Arjun movie. This time, the milky boy will be seen as an elder brother in Srimanthudu. Nikitha Anil Kumar will play the sister role opposite Mahesh.  Speaking in an interview, Nikita said, “I tried to talk to Mahesh several times during the shoot, but due to the non-availability of time, we both could not do it. The conversation just limited to hi and bye, but nothing else.”Nikitha Anil Kumar was earlier seen in “Boy meets the girl, Tholi Prema Katha” movie. Though the movie did not do well, Nikita’s performance in the movie was well appreciated. Not stopping with just appreciating, Koratala Siva even offered a sister role opposite Maheshbabu in Srimanthudu. Srimanthudu is scheduled to release on August 7th and advance booking of Srimanthudu tickets is already started in several theaters and also through online. Especially all the songs of Srimanthudu already achieved a good response. So the makers are expecting the similar response to the movie too.        By Phani

Obama strict of cuts in greenhouse gas emission cuts for power plants August 03, 2015 14:52

President Barack Obama will impose steeper cuts in greenhouse gas emissions from U.S. power plants, senior administration officials said. “Climate change is not a problem for another generation,” Mr. Obama said. “Not anymore.” Mr. Obama has mandated a 30 percent nationwide cut in carbon dioxide emissions by 2030, when compared to 2005 levels. According to Obama administration officials, the final version, will follow extensive consultations with environmental groups and the energy industry, which will require a 32 percent cut."Power plants are the single biggest source of harmful carbon pollution that contributes to climate change," said Obama. "But until now, there have been no federal limits to the amount of that pollution that those plants can dump into the air." "For the sake of our kids, for the health and safety of all Americans, that's about to change."Gina McCarthy, head of the Environmental Protection Agency, insisted that the rules were "reasonable" and "achievable". "They can cut carbon pollution in whatever way makes the most sense to them," she said. "No plant has to meet them alone or all at once, they have to meet them as part of the grid and over time." "I would never accept a scenario where affordability or reliability came into question," McCarthy said."These will burden Americans with increasingly high-costs of an essential service and a less reliable electric grid for delivering it," said Hal Quinn, president of the National Mining Association.The proposal for 32-percent collective reduction has drawn fierce opposition from the Republican Party, which has described the measures as "overreach," "heavy-handed" and said they would have "devastating consequences for our economy." In a video, Obama has said that the global warming and the reasons behind it were backed up by scientific data, but some Republican opponents disputed the existence of any global warming and others have cast their doubt on whether humans are to be blamed for the phenomenon.Laying out the points on how climate change is a threat to the economy, health, wellbeing and security of America and added that time is of the essence, Obama said in a video.Even when natural gas is gaining popularity, hundreds of coal-fired power plants are dotted across the country to provide about 37 percent of the US electricity supply, ahead of natural gas and nuclear energy.By Premji

Heavy weight of school bags can lead to back bone problems August 03, 2015 12:50

According to a study performed by the health experts it was proved that more than 60 percent of schoolchildren with heavy back packs have been found suffering from back bone and muscle problems. "Not just this, carrying backpacks over one shoulder is a wrong practise, as it makes muscles strain. The spine leans to the opposite side, stressing the middle back, ribs, and lower back more on one side than the other and this muscle imbalance can cause muscle strain, muscle spasm, and back pain," said Satnam Singh Chhabra, director, Neuro Spine Department at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.Many parents worry about the wrong postures of their children and complain about them to the doctors. Though doctors can’t help about the heavy weights they suggest the parents to encourage their off springs to bear the weight equally with both the shoulders. They also suggest that every child should attend the physical education period to be flexible and stay fit."Apart from taking care of their nutrition like proteins, vitamin D, calcium, etc, we suggest children should participate in physical activity and should be encouraged to play outdoor games as this will help them strengthen their muscles and increase their stamina too."By Lizitha

Special status rejected for Bihar, not AP - Nirmala Seetharaman August 03, 2015 12:12

Central Minister Nirmala Seetharaman made sensational comments on AP special status issue, saying that, the special status is rejected for Bihar, but not for AP. It is known that recently, the Union Minister of Planning and Defense, Indrajit Singh declared that, no special status would be given to any Indian state.  After that declaration, the issue went viral across the country, especially in Andhra Pradesh. Regarding the special status issue, several AP MPs opined that, they are ready to protest against central government, until the special status to AP is declared.JC Diwakar Reddy comments on special status went more viral, as he clearly declared that, special status to AP, is a dream, that can never be achieved and also hinted that even AP CM Naidu is aware of it.    Nirmala raises new hopes on special status to AP Speaking on the special status issue, Nirmala said, “Indrajit Singh comments on special status are applicable to Bihar, but not AP. The centre makes all the favour to AP soon.” In fact, on a tour to Vijayawada in the past, Nirmala already gave a positive hope to AP special status.  AP Special status: Nirmala is trying to mislead AP people? In spite of the centre’s clear rejection of AP special status issue publicly, how come there be a separate treatment to AP? If so, will the other states like Bihar, be calm about it? Knowing that, the centre faces severe consequences from other states, if AP is declared special status, how can it move positive only to AP state? So, is Nirmala trying to mislead the public? If so she misleads, will it continue till 2019 elections and then declare special status after re-winning in the elections? Time should answer all these questions. Let us see, what the centre is planning for AP.By Phani

Interest rates may be unchanged August 03, 2015 11:54

The chances of a rate revision of the Reserve Bank of India are very remote. The Export-Import Bank of India states that, the rising trend in inflation seen over the last two months and the rainfall deficits is expected to weigh over the considerations of a weak economic performance."Consequently, policy rate cut by the RBI in its third bimonthly policy appears bleak. The RBI is likely to maintain status quo on rates in its bimonthly policy meet on August 4," it said."Ind-Ra expects the policy stance to reflect RBI's continued intention to anchor both inflation and inflationary expectations. This has become even more important for RBI after its agreement with the government to follow a framework of inflation targeting," India Ratings and Research said.Consumer price-index (CPI), or retail inflation has risen to an eight-month high of 5.4 per cent in the month of June.  The CPI-urban for the month of June has inched higher to 4.55 per cent, the CPI-rural jumped to 6.07 per cent from 5.52 per cent in May. In the previous review in the month of June, RBI has cut the repo rate, at which it lends short-term to commercial banks, from 7.5 per cent to 7.25, but left other parameters like the cash reserve ratio (CRR) and the statutory liquidity ratio (SLR), unchanged at 4 per cent and 21.5 per cent, respectively. RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan has said that the plans for lower food output is needed to be in place, global financial markets were volatile, factory output was recovering unevenly, the services sector was emitting mixed signals, fuel inflation was up, exports were down and liquidity had improved."We believe that a government-elected panel undermines the RBI's independence. Moving to the new model would severely dent the RBI's competency. Credibility would be lower, politics would drive decisions, and transparency would be reduced," American research firm Moody's Analytics said."Overall, we believe that tampering with the central bank's independence would make it difficult to anchor inflation expectations. This would weigh on India's economic prospects, particularly financial market stability," said the Moody's report. "But given the criticism of the draft bill, it is unlikely to pass parliament," it added."The RBI is likely to maintain its stance that the evolving inflation outlook needs to be monitored closely," said Radhika Rao, economist at DBS in Singapore."Despite policy reforms to iron out food supply bottlenecks, the impact is yet to be felt on the streets. This, coupled with over-reliance on rain-fed irrigation, will continue to provide food price shocks," said Debopam Chaudhuri, chief economist at ZyFin Research.“It is something that would gladden the hearts of all connected with real estate. My heart says the RBI Governor should do so, but my mind doesn’t share the enthusiasm. If the RBI cuts rates, logically it should boost investments and growth,” said Niranjan Hiranandani, MD, Hiranandani Constructions. “Concerns related to key inflation risks highlighted by the RBI during its June 2015 policy review have ebbed in recent weeks, with smaller than feared monsoon deficit, moderation in crude oil prices and relatively stable currency,” said Naresh Takkar, group CEO and MD, ICRA.By Premji

Just 4 days left for the Super Star Mahesh’s most awaited flick Srimanthudu, and so the tickets are being sold out, as hot cakes in online and at the theaters. Srimanthudu tickets advance booking was opened yesterday. Within a few hours of opening, a phenomenal response was observed from Mahesh fans and as of now, the tickets for the first weekend shows are completed. Gambling in Srimanthudu tickets In all the major theaters in Hyderabad, Srimanthudu tickets advance booking is going on. But most of the fans are complaining that, there is a lot of gambling taking place in Srimanthudu tickets. Especially at the theaters, though the tickets are available, the theatres are spotted with houseful boards for the entire weekend. The reason behind hiding Srimanthudu tickets is, most of the audience turns to the theatre on the first day and that weekend. So the theater owners are intending to sell the tickets for high rates in black. In fact, the audience faced a similar problem for Baahubali too. So, currently, getting Srimanthudu tickets is turned as a tough deal.
