Rs slips for 3rd day down 18 paise to 6960 against

first_imgMumbai: The Indian rupee Tuesday lost another 18 paise to close at 69.60 against the US dollar, marking its third straight session of decline owing to sustained demand for the greenback from importers and rising global crude oil prices. The local currency has depreciated by 68 paise in the last three days. Besides, strong dollar against its rival currencies built additional pressure on the rupee. However, persistent foreign fund inflows and heavy buying in domestic equities supported the rupee and capped the losses to some extent. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalAt the Interbank Foreign Exchange (forex) market, the rupee opened lower at 69.55 and fell further to touch the day’s low of 69.69. It finally ended at 69.60 per dollar, down by 18 paise against its previous close. The rupee on Monday had declined by 25 paise to close at 69.42 a dollar. “The strength in dollar index against basket of six currencies and delay of dollar inflow by Essar steel lead to weakness in the rupee,” said V K Sharma, Head PCG and Capital Markets Strategy, HDFC Securities.

James Reilly promised to scrap the 50c prescription levynow its €250

first_imgON TAKING OFFICE in March 2011, Dr James Reilly promised to scrap the controversial 50 cent levy on prescription items for medical card holders…but three years on, it is now five times more expensive.The charge will jump to €2.50 as a result of yesterday’s Budget.In his first television interview after being named Minister for Health, Reilly pledged to get rid of the unpopular levy which was introduced by the Fianna Fáil-led government in 2010.He described the charge as an unwise policy, stating that it could prevent people from obtaining necessary medications.The prescription levy, which caused outrage at the time of its introduction, has increased steadily each year since 2010.Patients with medical cards will now have to pay €2.50 for every item obtained through a prescription. The levy will be capped at €25 per month.Pharmacists are already reporting a “significant annoyance” among customers at the increase.“People are angry and concerned,” said secretary general of the Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU), Darragh O’Loughlin.“Putting economic barriers in the way of patients taking their medicine doesn’t make sense,” continued pharmacist Bernard Duggan.“People living with heart disease, or at risk of the disease, should be focusing on getting better and keeping well not worrying about how they’re going to pay for their next vital prescription.“Poor adherence to treatments, especially in the case of chronic illness and long-term patients will mean more hospital stays, more pressure on our already struggling and depleting health service and more cost to the exchequer in the treatment of these patients in the long run. Patients need to be supported not punished.The IPU has called for exemptions for patients in residential care settings, those with intellectual disabilities, people using the Methadone Treatment Scheme and in need of other medication, homeless men and woman and palliative care patients who may have their medicines changed very regularly.It is hoped the additional money from the Prescription Levy will be worth €43 million to the Department of Health.In a statement to, it said that the charge is intended to address rising costs in the medical card scheme and to influence, to some degree, demand and prescribing patterns.The number of items dispensed under the scheme is projected to be about €65 million this year.PICTURES: The winners and losers of Budget 2014Read: Health Budget measures could have “dangerous and unintended” consequences, GPs warnDamien Kiberd: Budget 2014 arithmetic not just iffy – it’s scarylast_img read more

first_imgNEW ADDITION KUMAR looks like he’s already becoming the pride of Dublin Zoo (see what we did there?).The 7-year-old Asian lion who weighs 140 kilos (22 stone) has joined Dublin Zoo from Rotterdam Zoo, and has been specially selected for his lovin’ skills.Well, kind of. Dublin Zoo said today Kumar will provide “an important boost to the international breeding programme for this highly endangered species”. Enjoy that, Kumar.There are believed to be just 350 Asian lions left in the wild, all of them in one national park in India.“Kumar is a stunning animal with an amazing mane,” said Ciaran McMahon, who is in charge of the big cats at Dublin Zoo.Kumar possesses the usual characteristics of a big cat, including strength, power and prowess.

Felt Mouse is geeky fuzzy and beautiful

first_imgPeople in the design world are going crazy for designer Joey Roth’s Felt Mouse. You heard us right, it’s a computer mouse made out of felt. The minimalistic design is what really makes this mouse so appealing.AdChoices广告There aren’t a lot of details about the making of the mouse or the materials, but it seems the bottom is made out of brushed aluminum with an LED light sensor. There looks to be a layer of felt above that, and a thin piece of wood on top of that. To top it all off, there’s another piece of felt with a click wheel wedged into it, which you can hardly notice. The wood used is Teak, a tropical hardwood from the Tectona grandis tree native to South and Southeast Asia.Roth used wool felt, which could result in sweaty palms on a hot summer’s day. Some may consider this a design flaw, but Roth according to Roth’s website, he mixes “simple functionality with honest, unfinished materials” that take on a different look and become more personal with use.Roth “designs products to articulate the beauty of everyday rituals.” Clicking a mouse is certainly an everyday ritual for most people nowadays. The felt mouse looks great, but we’re guessing it’s not very good for your hand, ergonomically speaking.The mouse was displayed in New York at the American Design Club in May. Though it’s still a prototype, Roth may be making more of these furry mice in the near future as it seems to have been well received.via Selectismlast_img read more

Google Doodle timelapse video celebrates Halloween

first_imgThe Google Doodle for today celebrates Halloween, and its creation required a number of the Google geeks spending a bit more time than usual away from their PCs. That’s because this doodle isn’t an image, animation, or interactive piece of work, it is instead a time-lapse of Google employees carving pumpkins to portray the Google logo.These are no ordinary pumpkins, with some of them weighing in excess of 1,000 pounds (the largest is 1,298 pounds). The carving took what must have been a gruelling 8 hours to complete and was carried out in the middle of Google’s Mountain View campus.The act of carving the pumpkins into the letters of Google’s logo is meant to convey the transformation that happens on this day every year around the world. We all make things a little creepier whether it be house decorations, costumes, or just sitting in the dark with a scary movie tonight.As the behind the scenes video below shows, even though these pumpkins are huge, they are also quite fragile and require a lot of care when moving them. The finished letters were also difficult to achieve considering the wall of each pumpkin is more than six inches thick in some places. At times a saw was required to get through the tough outer layers before a carving knife could be used for the detail.If you’re wondering how Google managed to get the candles to stay alight in the wind, they didn’t. Instead, light bulbs were placed inside that had been setup to flicker like candlelight. And with the size of the pumpkins there should be enough light to have a spooky party or gathering around them this evening. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone at Google has a very scary surprise planned for those who decide to attend.More at The Official Google Bloglast_img read more

Google shows off what Glass can really do

first_imgMuch in the same way that Google has removed the infamous Beta tag from its many products, the futuristic wearable computer we’ve seen whispers of for months has dropped its “project” tag. Google’s Glass is ready to show you what it is really capable of in the video above, and there’s now a way for you to try and get added to the list of people wanting to own Glass.Google’s original “One Day” video with Glass showed a lot of things that would be nice to see in wearable tech, but it was clear that we were looking at a pipe dream. Google has made great strides in the past year to make a lot of the things in that original video come to life, but not everything. The video shows the projection of Glass as the user would see it, as a very transparent image at the top corner of their vision. The experience is designed to be just out of focus until you need it, so you can wear it while driving and not feel as though you are going to be distracted.Glass is a very personal experience, pulling all of the Google services into the band that wraps around your head. The WiFi only headset gives the user access to Google Now, Google Navigation, Hangouts, and a simple contact manager for communicating with friends and family. For the most part, it’s a hands-free experience, but as we’ve seen before, the trackpad on the side is still helpful in some situations. What wasn’t shown here in the video is the head gestures in Glass, designed to make it easy to scroll long lists or dismiss the Glass display when you don’t need it.The most important question Google could have answered today is the one that everyone, even the precious few who were able to get one during Google IO, have been asking for months: how do I get hold of this magical headset?If you’re interested in trying to earn a spot on the Glass Explorers list, you’ll need to play a little game with Google. It may seem like you’re competing for the chance to spend $1,500 on a piece of technology you’ve never held before, and that’s because you are doing exactly that.To participate, write Google a love note on Google+ explaining what you would do with a Glass headset and make sure to use the hashtag #ifihadglass.last_img read more

NATO asks Russia free seized Ukrainian ships

first_imgNATO secretary general Jens Stoltenberg gives a press conference following tensions between Russia and Ukraine at NATO headquarters in Brussels, on 26 November 2018. Photo: AFPNATO chief Jens Stoltenberg on Monday demanded Russia free Ukrainian ships and sailors held after clashes off Crimea, warning Moscow that “its actions have consequences”.Russia fired on and then seized three Ukrainian ships on Sunday, accusing them of illegally entering its waters in the Sea of Azov, in a dramatic spike in tensions that raises fears of a wider escalation.Stoltenberg held phone talks with Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko before officials from the two sides held emergency talks at alliance headquarters in Brussels.”There is no justification for the use of military force against Ukrainian ships and naval personnel, so we call on Russia to release immediately the Ukrainian sailors and ships it seized yesterday,” Stoltenberg told reporters after the meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission.”And we call for calm and restraint.”Kiev accused Russia of launching “a new phase of aggression”, which annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014.The Ukrainian military has been put on high alert and the country’s parliament is to vote on a request by Poroshenko to impose martial law for 60 days.Ukraine has also urged its Western allies to step up existing sanctions implemented against Russia over Crimea and its role in the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine between the government and pro-Moscow separatists.Stoltenberg said the 29 NATO allies reiterated their support for Ukrainian sovereignty, saying they would never recognise Russia’s claim to Crimea.”Russia has to understand that its actions have consequences — that’s the reason why NATO has reacted so firmly against the actions of Russia against Ukraine over several years,” the former Norwegian premier said, without giving details of possible consequences but pointing to economic sanctions imposed by the West on Russia.Stoltenberg said Poroshenko had assured him that the proposed martial law would not interfere with upcoming presidential elections planned for 31 March.Moscow has blamed Kiev for the incident, drawing a barbed response on Twitter from the US Special Envoy for Ukraine Negotiations, Kurt Volker.”Russia rams Ukrainian vessel peacefully travelling toward a Ukrainian port. Russia seizes ships and crew and then accuses Ukraine of provocation???” Volker tweeted.Tensions have been building over the Kerch Strait, where Russia has built a new bridge that gives it a land connection to Crimea.Kiev has accused Moscow of blocking access for Ukrainian ships though the strait, the only way in and out of the Sea of Azov to the Black Sea.last_img read more

Tap Into Online Safety

first_imgSeptember 1, 2007 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Entrepreneur: Online fraud seems to be a popular topic, but has the percentage of fraudulent transactions on eBay actually increased?Rob Chesnut: There is less fraud on eBay today than there was three years ago. In the past five years, we’ve built our own fraud engine and now have a global team of 2,000 safety experts dedicated to identifying potential fraudulent activity. We’ve stayed ahead of a fast and challenging environment, and we’ve really made an impact. But I’m not satisfied. Fraud at any level on eBay just isn’t acceptable.Entrepreneur: Can you describe the most common forms of fraud?Chesnut: Fraud usually occurs when buyers take transactions offline, away from the safe confines of eBay. In the rare instances it occurs on eBay, it’s seller fraud committed on buyers, such as when the buyer sends payment and the seller fails to ship the merchandise, it gets lost or what the buyer receives isn’t what was advertised. In those cases, the buyer files a complaint against the seller. The higher-dollar transactions have more potential for [fraudulent activity].For sellers, the key issue is how to handle problem customers. Are you willing to live with [potential] negative feedback? Will you accept returns? Is the customer always right? The greater the level of trust you build, the more successful you’ll be. Trust is determined by the number of transactions you’ve completed, the number of positive feedbacks you’ve received and whether or not you accept returns.Entrepreneur: What is the difference between trust and safety?Chesnut: Safety from potential crime and fraud is a prerequisite for trust. The more you do to demonstrate that you are a trustworthy seller, the safer your buyers will feel and the more they will buy from you.Entrepreneur: What new features has eBay instituted to combat fraudulent transactions?Chesnut: We just launched a number of initiatives designed to eliminate fraud and ensure safer transactions. Our Safeguarding Member IDs project helps prevent off-site fraud by hiding the bidder’s User ID on transactions over $200 so buyers don’t receive spam. We’ve also put restrictions on items popular with fraudsters and on luxury brands to keep counterfeits off the site. And we are much less tolerant of sellers who offer buyers a mediocre customer experience. New feedback features enable buyers to give more detailed ratings, so sellers can differentiate themselves and buyers can make more informed decisions.Entrepreneur: What can sellers do to protect themselves against fraud?Chesnut: First, be suspicious of anyone who wants to complete a transaction offline. Second, communicate with buyers, and read their feedback history to see what they’ve bought and sold before. Third, offer a safe and secure payment method such as PayPal, which offers you and your buyers a high level of protection. Fourth, never click on suspicious links or phishing e-mails, and be sure your computer has the latest browser–Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox, which have built-in phishing protection. Finally, use common sense and be wary of unusual listings.Marcia Layton turner writers regularly on small-business issues and is author of The Unofficial Guide to Marketing Your Small Business. 3 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Sprint and OneWeb Say the 8000 Jobs Announced by Trump Are Part

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. This story originally appeared on Reuters Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 2 min read President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday said telecommunications group Sprint Corp. and a U.S. satellite company OneWeb will bring 8,000 jobs to the United States, and the companies said the positions were part of a previously disclosed pledge by Japan’s SoftBank Group Corp.SoftBank holds stakes in both companies and its chief, billionaire businessman Masayoshi Son, earlier in December said he would invest $50 billion in the United States and create 50,000 jobs.Sprint in January said it had cut 2,500 jobs as part of its plan to cut $2.5 billion in costs. On Wednesday it said it would create 5,000 jobs in areas including sales and customer care by the end of its fiscal year ending in March 2018.Sprint spokesman Dave Tovar said the jobs were part of the pledge made by Son but would be funded by Sprint.SoftBank and OneWeb had announced on Dec. 19 that the Japanese company was leading a $1.2 billion funding round.OneWeb plans to use the funds to build a plant in Florida to produce low-cost satellites, creating almost 3,000 jobs at the company and its suppliers.SoftBank described its $1 billion share of the funding as the first tranche of the $50 billion promised by Son in a meeting with Trump.It is not clear whether the $50 billion SoftBank investment would be part of a $100 billion tech investment fund that the head of SoftBank and Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund had announced earlier in the year.”I was just called by the head people at Sprint and they are going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States, they are taking them from other countries,” Trump told reporters outside his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.”And also OneWeb, a new company, is going to be hiring 3,000 people. So that’s very exciting,” he added.Shares of Sprint Corp., which is 82 percent owned by SoftBank, were barely changed in after-hours trading.(Reporting by Richard Cowan; Additional reporting by Susan Heavey and Heather Somerville; Writing by Ayesha Rascoe and Peter Henderson; Editing by Lisa Shumaker) Register Now » December 29, 2016last_img read more

Storj Labs new Open Source Partner Program to generate revenue opportunities for

first_imgAt the Linux Foundation‘s Open Source Summit in Vancouver, Storj Labs a leader in decentralized cloud storage company, launched their ‘Open Source Partner Program’. This program will enable open-source projects to generate revenue when their users store data in the cloud. The program was launched with the aim to bridge the “major economic disconnect between the 24-million total open-source developers and the $180 billion cloud market” as stated by Ben Golub, Storj’s executive chairman and interim CEO. How does the Open Source Partner program work? Open-source projects simply need to integrate Storj into their existing cloud application infrastructure. Since Storj uses an Amazon Web Services ( AWS) S3 compliant interface, this integration should be easy. Storj provides a blockchain encrypted, distributed cloud storage with facilitates data security, improves reliability, and enhances performance when compared to traditional cloud storage approaches. Using client-side encryption ensures that data can only be accessed by the data owners. While harvesting all these benefits, open-source projects that will use the Storj network will be provided with a continuous revenue stream. 60% of its gross revenue will be given to its storage farmers and 40% will be split amongst open-source developers. Through simple Storj data connectors that will be integrated with their platforms, Storj can track data storage usage. Partners will be given help desk support and tools to test the network’s performance and capabilities. What’s in it for open source companies? Monetization has always been a challenge for open source companies. They ultimately require revenue to sustain themselves. Open source drives a sizable majority of the $200 billion-plus cloud computing market which is inversely proportional to the revenue that currently makes its way directly back to their projects and companies. The ‘Open Source Partner Program’ will help open source companies to grow exponentially and meet other financial-related goals.  Ultimately, open source companies – even the ones that only provide free products – require revenue to sustain themselves, and the Storj Open Source Partner Program aims to help. What’s in it for Storj? While this revenue generation program will benefit open source companies, it can also be viewed as an effective marketing strategy for Storj.  Open source projects are all the rage these days and the more these companies turn to Storj for decentralized cloud-based solutions, the more popularity and recognition Storj gets. Storj, as well as open source companies, realize the importance of openness, decentralization, and broad-based individual empowerment, which is why this program strikes the perfect balance to support open source projects. The Storj Labs has already won over ten major open-source partners, including Confluent, Couchbase, FileZilla, MariaDB, MongoDB, and Nextcloud, to join its Open Source Partner Program. These partners will be given early, immediate access to the V3 network private alpha. You can get a complete overview of the program on Storj’s blog post.

Then Hernandez died Thursday, and the Miami Herald obtained video that raised questions about the account Lyle gave police.The Herald reports the video appears to show Lyle knocking down Hernandez with one punch.___Information from: The Miami Herald, http://www.herald.comThe Associated Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img Fatal confrontation: Mexican TV star must come back to USlast_img read more
