MEET THE LEADING MEN AND WOMEN OF THE NFB

first_imgThe Best Damn Fiddler from Calabogie to KaladarSo, you probably know about how Arthur Lipsett’s films influenced George Lucas, or how Roman Kroiter and Colin Low wowed Stanley Kubrick with Universe (if not, read this), but did you know we had another big claim to fame? We have the privilege of producing the very first film that Margot Kidder appeared in.Kidder did a wonderful job as Rosie in this film about a man who chooses a way of life that has serious repercussions for his family. Only 19 or 20 at the time, she was already stealing the scene every time she walked into the frame. Kidder later went on to star opposite Christopher Reeves in the Superman films.READ MORE Facebook Advertisement Did you know we had an Oscar-nominated, Tony/BAFTA/Golden Globe-winning actor star in one of our docs? It’s true. Richard Burton provided his voice for the readings from Malcolm Lowry’s Under the Volcano in this riveting documentary that explores Lowry’s life, and “death by misadventure.”There are some common threads that run through the two men, like a tendency for turbulent relationships and a problem with alcohol, so the pairing just seems… right. Burton, star of the stage and screen, is of course known for his roles in Cleopatra, Hamlet, and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, as well as for his marriages to Elizabeth Taylor.

Top UN envoy hopes new Lebanese Government formed soon

“We went over the process of forming a new government and I expressed my hope that this will be accomplished soon, particularly since the government will have many social, economic and security challenges to face after it is formed,” Michael Williams, the UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon, told reporters after the meeting.In addition, he noted that Lebanon is expected to take a seat on the UN Security Council in early 2010 and it is important for it to be fully prepared under the guidance of a functioning government.Mr. Williams said he also congratulated Mr. Hariri on the initiatives he has taken during the past ten weeks to engage all the parliamentary blocs in the discussions on forming the government and his commitment to continuing the dialogue with all relevant parties in that regard.The two also discussed the implementation of Security Council resolution 1701, which helped to end the 2006 war between Hizbollah and Israel, as well as the situation in south Lebanon.“I am pleased by the calm that prevails in the area and expressed the hope that the new government would renew Lebanon’s commitment to the full implementation of that resolution,” he stated. 4 September 2009The top United Nations envoy for Lebanon today voiced hope that the country’s new Government will be formed soon, during talks in Beirut with Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri. read more

Canadian dollar lower amid rising fears over health of Greek Spanish banks

by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted May 17, 2012 4:30 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed lower at fresh four-month lows Thursday amid continuing anxiety over the future of the eurozone.The loonie lost 0.62 of a cent to 98.13 cents US as traders avoided riskier assets such as commodities and resource-based currencies such as the Canadian dollar.Canada’s dollar is down just over three cents this month compared with the American dollar, with losses picking up in the wake of the May 6 Greek election, which left no clear winner. Another election will be held June 17.Greece is being kept afloat by huge international bailouts. But there are increasing worries that parties demanding an end to the grinding austerity measures that made those bailouts possible will hold the balance of power after that next round of elections.Such a move could force Greece out of the eurozone with unpredictable consequences for the eurozone financial system and the wider global economy.But the worries aren’t just confined to Greece. Investors worry that destabilization could also hit other heavily indebted countries such as Spain, Ireland, Portugal and Italy.Concerns are also rising about the health of the area’s banks.Shares in Bankia, the recently nationalized Spanish bank, plunged by more than 20 per cent Thursday on a local report that customers have withdrawn more than €1 billion since the state took it over last week.The bank is Spain’s fourth-largest and is heavily exposed to the country’s collapsed property market.And on Wednesday, Greece’s president said depositors were pulling hundreds of millions of euros out of banks, weakening the country’s already strained financial system.“On the back of this, reports circulating that the European Central Bank will no longer be lending to Greek banks has aroused some attention,” observed Mark Chandler, Head of Canadian FIC Strategy at RBC Dominion Securities.“Though this is not to say the country is cut off — there still remain other channels of lending from the ECB that can occur.”Traders are also demanding more money to buy government debt.Spain managed to auction nearly €2.5 billion in medium-term debt amid strong demand but at sharply higher interest rates.The Spanish Treasury on Thursday sold three kinds of notes, two maturing in 2015 and one in 2016. Of them only one was strictly comparable to previous sales and the interest rate, or yield, on that three-year bond went up to 4.87 per cent from 4.04 per cent on May 3.On the secondary market, the interest rate on Spanish 10-year bonds stood at 6.29 per cent.Meanwhile, commodity prices were mixed after a string of bruising losses that have left prices for oil and metals at levels not seen in months.Demand concerns have been a big reason for the slide in prices. But commodities have also been driven down by the rising American currency. That’s because prices are denominated in U.S. dollars and a higher greenback makes oil and metals more expensive for holders of other currencies.And even before Greece reoccupied centre stage on markets, commodities and resource stocks were losing ground amid signs of a slowing global economy.The June crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange slipped 25 cents to US$92.56 a barrel, its lowest level since early November.Copper gained a penny to US$3.48 a pound after ending Wednesday’s session at its lowest level since mid-January while bullion gained $38.30 to US$1,574.90 an ounce after closing at its worst level since last July.

Panel urges better cybersecurity to Presidentelect Trump

by Tami Abdollah And Darlene Superville, The Associated Press Posted Dec 3, 2016 6:00 am MDT Last Updated Dec 3, 2016 at 6:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Feb. 17, 2016, file photo, President Barack Obama, joined by from left, Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano, former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, talks to media in the Oval Office of the White House, in Washington. Donilon, and Palmisano, are being appointed as the Chair and Vice Chair, respectively, of the Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity. A national commission is delivering urgent recommendations to improve the nation’s cybersecurity, weeks before President-elect Donald Trump takes office. The report follows the worst hacking of U.S. government systems in history and the Obama administration accusing Russia of meddling in the U.S. presidential election by hacking Democrats. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File) Panel urges better cybersecurity to President-elect Trump WASHINGTON – A presidential commission on Friday made 16 urgent recommendations to improve the nation’s cybersecurity, including creating a nutritional-type label to help consumers shop wisely and appointing a new international ambassador on the subject — weeks before President-elect Donald Trump takes office.The release of the 100-page report follows the worst hacking of U.S. government systems in history and accusations by the Obama administration that Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election by hacking Democrats.The Presidential Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity urged immediate action within two to five years and suggested the Trump administration consider acting on some proposals within its first 100 days.The commission recommended that Trump create an assistant to the president for cybersecurity, who would report through the national security adviser, and establish an ambassador for cybersecurity, who would lead efforts to create international rules. It urged steps, such as getting rid of traditional passwords, to end the threat of identity theft by 2021 and said Trump’s administration should train 100,000 new cybersecurity workers by 2020.Other ideas included helping consumers to judge products using an independent nutritional-type label for technology products and services.“What we’ve been doing over the last 15 to 20 years simply isn’t working, and the problem isn’t going to be fixed simply by adding more money,” said Steven Chabinsky, a commission member and the global chair of the data, privacy and cybersecurity practice for White & Case LLP, an international law firm.He said the group wanted the burden of cybersecurity “moved away from every computer user and handled at higher levels,” including internet providers and product developers who could ensure security by default and design “for everyone’s benefit.”The White House requested the report in February and intended it to serve as a transition memo for the next president. The commission included 12 of what the White House described as the brightest minds in business, academia, technology and security. It was led by Tom Donilon, Obama’s former national security adviser.The panel studied sharing information with private companies about cyber threats, the lack of talented American security engineers and distrust of the U.S. government by private businesses, especially in Silicon Valley. Classified documents stolen under Obama by Edward Snowden, a contractor for the National Security Agency, revealed government efforts to hack into the data pipelines used by U.S. companies to serve customers overseas.One commissioner, Herbert Lin of Stanford University, said some senior information technology managers distrust the federal government as much as they distrust China, widely regarded as actively hacking in the U.S.President Barack Obama said in a written statement after meeting with Donilon that his administration will take additional action “wherever possible” to build on its efforts make progress before he leaves office next month. He urged Trump and the next Congress to treat the recommendations as a guide.“Now it is time for the next administration to take up this charge and ensure that cyberspace can continue to be the driver for prosperity, innovation, and change both in the United States and around the world,” Obama said.It was not immediately clear whether Trump would accept the group’s recommendations. Trump won the election on promises to reduce government regulations, although decades of relying on market pressure or asking businesses to voluntarily make their products and services safer have been largely ineffective.Trump’s presidential campaign benefited from embarrassing disclosures in hacked emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff and others, and Trump openly invited Russian hackers to find and release tens of thousands of personal emails that Clinton had deleted from the private server she had used to conduct government business as secretary of state. He also disputed the Obama administration’s conclusion that Russia was responsible for the Democratic hackings.Though Trump is a prolific user of online social media services, especially Twitter, he is rarely seen using a computer. His campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, tweeted a photograph Monday of Trump working on an Apple laptop inside his office at Trump Tower. He testified in a deposition in 2012 that he did not own a personal computer or smartphone, and in another deposition earlier this year said he deliberately does not use email.Trump has already promised his own study by a “Cyber Review Team” of people he said he will select from military, law enforcement and private sectors. He said his team will develop mandatory cyber awareness training for all U.S. government employees, and he has proposed a buildup of U.S. military offensive and defensive cyber capabilities that he said will deter foreign hackers.The new report suggested that the government should remain the only organization responsible for responding to large-scale attacks by foreign countries.Obama has a mixed legacy on cybersecurity.Under Obama, hackers stole personal data from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management on more than 21 million current, former and prospective government employees, including details of security-clearance background investigations for federal agents, intelligence employees and others. The White House also failed in its efforts to convince Congress to pass a national law — similar to laws passed in some states — to require hacked companies to notify affected customers.But the Obama administration also became more aggressive about publicly identifying foreign governments it accused of hacking U.S. victims, arrested some high-profile hackers overseas, successfully shut down some large networks of hacked computers used to attack online targets, enacted but never actually used economic sanctions against countries that hacked American targets and used a sophisticated new cyber weapon called Stuxnet against Iran’s main nuclear enrichment facilities.Congress passed a new law in late 2015 to encourage companies and the government to share information about online threats.___Follow Tami Abdollah on Twitter at https://twitter.com/latams___Copy of the report:https://www.nist.gov/sites/default/files/documents/2016/12/02/cybersecurity-commission-report-final-post.pdf read more

I feel like Im 22 again Brogan desperate to earn his place

first_img‘I feel like I’m 22 again’: Brogan desperate to earn his place back in Dublin team Ten years on from his championship debut, the former Footballer of the Year wants to prove himself all over again. By Alan Waldron Image: Donall Farmer/INPHO http://the42.ie/3446859 Dublin forward Bernard Brogan. Image: Donall Farmer/INPHO Dublin forward Bernard Brogan. IT’S 10 YEARS to the day since Bernard Brogan finally fulfilled a childhood dream, making his championship debut for Dublin in a Leinster SFC quarter-final replay victory against Meath.Having enviously watched on as his older brother Alan helped Dublin to provincial victories in 2002 and 2005, Bernard Jnr, desperate to further cement the Brogan dynasty in the capital, had endured a frustrating couple of years trying to get ‘Pillar’ Caffrey’s attention.His introduction for Colin Moran in the 72nd minute in 2007 may have been no more than a game-killing exercise, but it marked the start of a remarkable championship career that has seen the St Oliver Plunkett/Eoghan Ruadh man earn 10 provincial crowns, as many All-Stars as his four All-Irelands, and one Footballer of the Year award.Yet despite all that, Brogan is feeling a sense of deja vu. He’s been left out of the starting XV for Dublin’s last two championship matches, one of course being the 2016 All-Ireland final replay; and he is returning to the frame of his early-20s, shedding some of the muscle mass he has accumulated over the years in an attempt to adapt to the increasing athletic demands of an evolving game.As swatches of fearless youngsters emerge off the Dublin production line, Brogan is desperate to prove himself all over again.“I feel like I’m 20, 21, 22 again, coming into training nervous about whether or not I’m going to get a start,” Brogan tells The42.“It’s given me a new energy, it’s given me a new motivation around the place, it’s driven me on a good bit this year.“This year I’ve had a clean bill of health, so the body feels good. I’ve shipped a couple of kilos, I’m trying to get across the ground a bit easier.“The game has evolved and it’s about trying to get across Croke Park and trying to have the legs to keep up with the lads breaking out of defence.”Don’t be fooled by the affable, polished demeanour — Brogan wouldn’t have accumulated such a raft of honours if he didn’t possess a fierce competitive streak. Being told he’s no longer one of Dublin’s best three inside forwards is difficult to stomach, but he knows there’s only one way to respond.Today’s As vs Bs training game is as good a place as any to put his hand up for a starting spot in the Leinster semi-final.“I was obviously disappointed [to be left out against Carlow] because I felt I was moving really well coming into the last game,” adds Brogan.“But Jim just wanted me to come off the bench, there’s massive competition in the full-forward line.“There are probably seven or eight lads there who could play in most inter-county teams, so it’s something that we’re going to have to live with this summer.“It’s about getting the mindset right. I’m going to try to start the next day and I think when you don’t believe you can start or don’t believe you’re competitive, that’s when you start going backwards.“I’ll be competing; we have a trial game today, As vs Bs, 15 on 15, and I’ll be out there trying to win my place and show the management team that I’m good enough to play.”When Caffrey gave a ravenous 23-year-old Brogan his chance in 2007, he knew he had to make an impression after waiting in the wings for so long. And he did just that, bagging 1-1 in the Leinster final success against Laois and earning an All-Star nomination in his first championship season.Having that character-building start to his inter-county career has galvanised Brogan, and he feels that will stand to him as he attempts to reinvent himself on the football field.“It’s a challenge that I’ve had before. I spent two years on the bench under Pillar, fighting tooth and nail, doing extra sessions, practising myself trying to break into that team.“I felt like I deserved a chance but I just couldn’t get into the starting 15 or even onto the pitch under Pillar during his first few years.“So that’s a mindset that I’ve had before and is something that I’ve been able to sort of re-tap into.“It’s made me re-look at my body shape; re-look at my fitness levels; re-look at what cardio I need to be able to do on the pitch; re-look at my prehab, making sure I don’t pick up a silly knock; making sure I do my right recovery.”While Brogan may feel like he is back at square one somewhat, he does possess an invaluable attribute in his locker that extra sessions can’t even deliver — 10 years of inter-county football and all the knowledge it brings.“With the experience, I’m able to hone into it a bit better and take the ego out of it, take all that kind of stuff out of it.“I genuinely have no ego about the situation. I want to play for Dublin because I love Dublin. I want to win with Dublin because I love winning and I’m competitive.“There’s absolutely no selfishness about it, I want to do what’s best for the team and if the management and Jim says this guy is playing because he’s playing better than ya, I’ll go ‘right, I’m going to show you that he’s not better than me or I’m going to show you that I can make an impact when I come on.’“As I’ve got older my mindset has kind of changed like that. We’ve been lucky enough to have the learnings in life I suppose.” Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHOAs someone who has seen panels evolve under three different managers, Brogan believes competition for places in Dublin’s inside forward line is as tough as ever. Dean Rock, Kevin McManamon, Con O’Callaghan, Paddy Andrews, Paul Mannion, Cormac Costello, Eoghan O’Gara and Conor McHugh can all operate across the three full-forward positions, so Brogan knows he needs to get back towards his career-best form just to take part in the parade.“I’d say competition is at its ripest now, especially in the full-forward line — it’s probably the most competitive line we have.“There are seven or eight lads there who would genuinely get into any other inter-county team.“Cormac Costello is coming back from injury now, there’s so much competition there but that’s what drives us on.”Just in case he needed any extra motivation.The42 is on Instagram!

Thousands of Greeks to be investigated for tax evasion

first_imgTaxpayers in Greece might be receiving red flag notices after thousands of tax declarations have been reviewed by the country’s Independent Authority for Public Revenue (IAPR).This new research proved that even the new electronic system has loopholes, often abused by accountants promising larges refunds to their clients by claiming expenses up to a certain limit they know won’t trigger an audit.The number of citizens that amended their initial reports in order to tax evade is reportedly well in the thousands, a fraud that has seen large tax returns be allocated to claimants.According to an announcement from SDOE, Greece’s financial crimes unit, a significant number of accountants and possibly taxpayers had attempted to cheat the state out of a total of five million euros by claiming fake donations toward servicing the Greek debt or political parties. In this instance, claimants could receive up to a 20 per cent tax deduction through refunds which in some cases are estimated to have reached 45,000 euros.IAPR and SDOE have agreed to start audits investigating individuals who have reportedly secured the largest refunds in the last five years. If a claimant is flagged they will summoned by their tax office and expected to present the original documents verifying all the donations claimed by their accountants.“The scam was first discovered two months ago and authorities immediately changed the software for submitting declarations so that large refunds could not be claimed and the cases are sent to tax offices for an audit,” IAPR head Giorgos Pitsilis told Greece’s Real FM radio confirming that authorities have flagged about 170 suspicious tax statements.“It is not clear whether those who falsely claimed a large tax refund were aware of it, as authorities suspect that in some cases their accountant may have filed the amended declaration without notifying them,” he added admitting that in some cased the bank accounts provided did not even belong to the taxpayers who had filed for a tax refund.On this note, IAPR and SDOE are cooperating with banks to come up with a system linking all IBANs with the claimants’ tax identification numbers.

KNWR Launches BARK Ranger Program

first_imgEskelin: “Without a leash it’s really hard when a dog sees or smells something interesting in the woods. It’s harder for our little friends to respect wildlife without a little bit of help from owners.”  The Kenai National Wildlife Refuge as launched a ‘B.A.R.K. Ranger’ program to remind dog owners that the refuge was established to conserve wildlife and the habitat it needs to survive. KNWR is home to a wide variety of wildlife including moose, eagles, brown and black bears, wolves, and others. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Like all guests there is acceptable behavior when visiting someone else’s home, and that rule applies to our four legged friends exploring the trails of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. B.A.R.K; bag your own poop, always wear a leash on the Refuge, respect wildlife, and know where you can go. Ranger Leah Eskelin from the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge: “The Refuge is awesome, has a beautiful set of trails and we all like to go out and enjoy it. We like to see the bear scat because it lets us know where wildlife is, but not so much the dogs. It’s all about respecting where we are, and be responsible dog owners.”  Some areas of the Refuge closed to Dogs include the Keen Eye Nature Trail and Cross-Country Ski Trails at the Headquarters/Visitor Center. All other areas of the Refuge are open to dogs. On Refuge campground dogs are required to be on a leash no longer than nine ft. in all refuge campgrounds.last_img read more

Thoughts on the Advantage Business Media Requalification Fiasco

first_imgAfter reading the story of how Advantage Business Media got scammed by a telemarketing firm on its qualification efforts, here are some observations:• BPA was right two years ago to require that calls be recorded. It stands to reason that these violations would never have been discovered had the calls not been a required part of the audit record. • BPA proved its value here, for sure. The audit bureau, faced with a perceived decline in importance as print magazines become less important in the media-company revenue mix, showed why pristine third-party verification still matters. The press release wasn’t completely clear, but somewhere between 6,000 and 24,000 subscriptions of five Advantage magazines were disqualified. That’s a significant number. • I’m not sure how Advantage could have missed such a systemic failure except that it doesn’t have enough people paying attention. And that’s one byproduct of the waves of downsizing in the magazine industry in the last few years. The circulation profession has been particularly hard hit, as publishers take one of three approaches: They lay off their circulation departments, or at least downsize them dramatically, and outsource a bare bones operation; they focus their audience development efforts on database development and online audience acquisition, and hire people skilled in those areas; or they task their traditional circulation departments with handling their “legacy” tasks along with those new functions. The third approach has been tried in several high-profile cases. But for the most part, that approach has not succeeded or taken hold widely. The sum of $500,000 in additional spending to requalify the falsified calls seems like an awful lot of money. It’s scary. It’s not an amount that companies have sitting around. In fact, it might break some smaller companies. I predict that the publicity surrounding that unforeseen requal expense will cause yet more companies to question how much they need an audit. Don’t get me wrong: I believe strongly in the value of the audit bureaus. But given the tenor of the times, you can’t expect executives not to note the extremely high costs here.last_img read more

Laying the groundwork for housing solutions

first_imgThe Housing First Project under construction on November 17, 2016. (Photo by David Purdy/KTOO)Some solutions for Alaska’s housing shortage are exciting and innovative small-scale projects, like student-built housing in the village of Nikolai. Others are steadfast, long-term solutions that lay the groundwork for housing development statewide.Brian Wilson is the Executive Director of Alaska Coalition on Housing and Homelessness and knows about some of those long-term ideas. Full disclosure – Brian is married to another reporter you hear on Alaska Public Media, Elizabeth Jenkins from Alaska’s Energy Desk.Anne Hillman: Brian, communities around the state talk about housing and homelessness. Is that actually a problem?Brian Wilson: Yes, it’s a big problem in the state. You know, in the last two years we’ve really made a lot of improvements in our data reporting system that tracks homelessness across the state, and we’ve mapped out where our resources are. We’ve really seen that there’s been a rise in chronic homelessness in our state — so people who are consistently homeless and are trying to find a solution to that through a Housing First or a permanent supportive housing intervention.But we’ve also seen that those interventions just don’t exist, especially in the balance of state [which is everywhere outside of Anchorage.] The resources that we do have are in our urban hubs – Fairbanks, Juneau, and Anchorage for the post part. But for many areas, if someone is presenting as homeless, their closest intervention could be a thousand miles away.AHFC’s new affordable housing development in Russian Jack, Susitna Square. (Hillman/Alaska Public Media)Anne: Other states have come up with different ways to address that. How do we develop the specific solutions? Is there a policy to look at?Brian: The first thing that we’re trying to advocate for is to get this conversation happening on a consistent basis at the legislative level. We’re one of the few states that doesn’t have a legislative committee assigned to housing and homelessness issues. And so what we’re really trying to push right now is to get that conversation happening consistently at the statewide level.In addition, we really want to have communities have this conversation at the local level. Every community by state statute is required to have a comprehensive plan in place. And those things typically cover land use, transportation, community facilities. The reason why they include those similarities is because that’s what’s required of them in their planning process by the statute. What we’re advocating for is to amend that statute to include housing and homelessness issues in there as this is a problem that every community is facing.Anne: So we have the conversation on the state and local levels, we figure out our needs. Then, how do we pay for it?Brian: As it stands right now, there are a lot of different agencies that address homelessness in some way through existing grant streams. But the problem is that those different grant streams are not really connected in an easy way for folks to access and leverage those funds together to put up new programs.And so what we’re calling for is called a funder’s collaborative. This is a best practice from many different states, where all the different agencies identify that the lack of supportive housing in our state is a problem and it’s a priority area. And we’re going to look at this from an interagency perspective where we work together to ensure that the funds that we do have, that we manage right now to address this issue, are as accessible as possible to communities that may have a very limited knowledge of how to access those funds.Anne: Will collaborating and coordinating funding streams be enough to solve Alaska’s housing problems, or do we need another source of money?Brian: We don’t have this pot of gold that we’re sitting on and not disbursing out. A lot of these existing grant streams are just keeping existing programs afloat. And there’s a lack of new programmatic money out there.What we’re trying to do — the long-range plan is how do we create a fund where we can have money for new programs out there.Alaska is one of only three states in the entire country that does not have a statewide housing trust fund or a statewide fund that is earmarked to address housing and homelessness issues on an annual basis. That’s something we need to start thinking about, even in these tough financial times, we need to start planning for how to solve this problem. Because if we don’t start investing in housing, we’re just going to continue to see more of the same, or even worse, the problem elevate to a larger level.Want to hear more Solutions Desk stories?

Foreign institutions invest 1575 million in July in Indian equities July car

first_imgForeign institutional investors (FIIs/FPIs) were bullish on 17 of the 20 trading sessions in July, investing more than $1.57 billion in Indian equities on a net basis though the BSE Sensex gained 3.89 percent during the month.Data gleaned from Central Depository Services (India) Limited, or CSDL, indicates that FIIs were net buyers of Indian equities worth $1,575 million during July, a month that saw many Sensex companies declaring their first quarter (Q1) results, the BJP-led NDA government making forward movement on the Goods and Services (GST) Bill and formally announcing the acceptance of the 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations on salary hike benefiting millions of employees.For the first fortnight, FIIs were net buyers of Indian stocks worth $664 million.The Sensex closed 157 points down at 28,051.86 on July 29, still 3.89 percent higher from its June 30 closing of 26,999.72.  Triggers for next weekThe first trading day of August is likely to open on a bullish note after the NDA government announced that it will be tabling the much-awaited GST Bill in the Rajya Sabha next week. Going by the statements made both by the government and the Opposition, including the Congress, the landmark indirect tax reform legislation is likely to be passed. The legislation needs a 2/3rd majority, since it is a constitutional amendment Bill.Though a foregone conclusion, the government’s announcement that it will pay salary arrears to about 47 lakh Central government employees in one go along with their August salary is likely to have a positive impact on market sentiments on Monday.Analysts have already said that higher cash in the hands of millions of Indians is likely to spur consumption, enabling companies to scale up production and thereby better utilisation capacities. On the flip side, there is a risk of inflation going up, as has been expressed by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Raghuram Rajan. The week could also see rate-sensitive stocks such as banks and finance companies reacting to speculation of what the RBI says at its August 9 monetary policy review meeting with regard to interest rates, inflation and economic growth, apart from trends in the global economy.During July, many frontline companies such as Infosys, Wipro, TCS and ICICI Bank declared their June quarter results.Monthly volume sales of car, two-wheeler makersThe first trading day of August will be influenced by volume sales data for July to be declared by the likes of Maruti Suzuki, Tata Motors, Mahindra, Bajaj Auto, Hero Motocorp and TVS Motor. Unlisted entities in the sector, including Renault India, Ford, Hyundai, Honda, Toyota Kirloskar and Mercedez, will also be declaring the figures either on Monday or on Tuesday.Maruti Suzuki is likely to post 10.4 percent growth at 1,21,887 units in domestic car sales from 1,10,405 units sold in July 2015, according to analysts Gaurant Dadwal and Vivek Sarin at Nirmal Bang Equities. Bajaj Auto (motorcycle segment) is expected to post 5 percent growth at 2,96,555 units in July 2016 from 2,82,433 units in July 2015, while rival Hero Motocorp sales are likely to come at 5,16,922 units, up 6 percent from 4,87,580 units sold in the corresponding month last year, according to the analysts.Overall, it is expected to be a mixed one for auto makers.”July is a seasonally lean month for automobile sales and hence we don’t expect any big surprise in despatches…In case of two-wheelers, we expect single-digit growth led by higher scooter sales and recent new launches. As regards cars, new models are expected to drive growth for some companies, while in case of commercial vehicles or CVs we expect single-digit YoY growth in medium and heavy commercial vehicles or MHCVs following recent deceleration in sales and a seasonally weak month for CV sales,” the analysts said.last_img read more

you turn on right after turning on the TV” Do you still think like that I would say that our thinking has evolved in that we envision the consumer having a direct experience with our intellectual property (IP) as the core foundation of the company Meaning I want you to love what you’re doing with Zelda with Animal Crossing with Smash Bros Nurturing that love for the IP is the overarching objective How we will do that will now be executed in a variety of different ways It’ll still be executed with a dedicated gaming system or systems It’ll be executed through mobile It’ll be executed through licensed merchandise It’ll be executed in other ways like what we are doing with Universal Studios So it’s not so much changing the way you interact with your TV It really is all about how you interact with our IP And part of the reason why this has evolved is you talk to a lot of millennials and they don’t really have the same type of engagement with their TV that I grew up with They’re interacting with other screens now and they’re just as happy interacting with those other screens And so that has caused us to really continue refining our proposition In the end I don’t mind how you interact with our IP as long as you’re interacting with it every day Visitors play Nintendo’s new video game console Switch during its presentation in Tokyo on January 13 2017 Kazuhiro NogI—AFP/Getty Images Was Wii U a necessary failure I don’t recall who said it but one of our executives said something similar I think it might have been Mr Miyamoto the last time he was here in New York where he made the comment “I hope consumers look back at Wii U as a necessary step in order to get to Nintendo Switch” Which is another way of saying what you did And it’s interesting you know as consumers think back the fondness and the memories shift I joined the company as GameCube was ending its life And as we look at the install base of the platform certainly it’s not one of our higher install base platforms And yet it seems the talk now is all about how consumers are hoping that there’s a GameCube virtual console which I just find interesting But yes you can look at Nintendo Switch and certainly see a lineage not only to Wii U but as our Switch presentation highlighted really to so many of our historical platforms And there is certainly no mistake in that Do you worry in light of mobile’s ascent that the market’s become too mercurial for these kinds of systems The marketplace is absolutely mercurial But what I love about our company is that we create a vision and then we go all in When we launched the Wii I mean again people look back and say “100 million units it was easy” Believe me I was there and it wasn’t easy at all We had tough conversations internal debate like “How are we going to do this How are we going to bring it to life What are we going to do” And what I would say is that we made a lot of smart choices and we were lucky And that is the Nintendo history We make smart choices and we are oftentimes lucky The decision to hire Mr Miyamoto we were lucky The decision by Mr Miyamoto to create Donkey Kong as a replacement to an arcade game that was failing in the marketplace was on one hand brilliant to ask him to do it but we were lucky that it was Donkey Kong and that it was successful What we are working hard to do is to make smart choices with Nintendo Switch and once again be fortunate that the marketplace responds in a positive way Write to Matt Peckham at mattpeckham@timecomThe day started with a short parade through downtown

types of audience director Gokul appears to have compromised on storytelling Top News Kaashmora movie cast: Karthi Nayanthara Sri Divya Vivek Kaashmora movie director: Gokul The trailer of Kaashmora has set expectations high for the film among the audience It gave the impression that the film is more likely to make audience cower in fear bite their nails during action sequences and laugh their guts out with its comedy The result I’m afraid is not what was expected of it Kaashmora is not a bad film Director Gokul has tried hard to remain true to the film’s multi-genre tag and the movie does manage to keep the audience entertained for the majority of its run time which is 232 hours In order to satisfy all types of audience Gokul appears to have compromised on storytelling as at times the film loses its grip on the viewers Kaashmora played by Karthi is a con artist Along with his family of four Kaashmora exploits the fear and superstitious beliefs of people to make money The film’s first half is a candid take on self-proclaimed sons and messengers of gods The film takes a stand on the thriving business of godmen and godwomen who feed on people’s spirituality fear guilt and beliefs Till the interval the movie is high on comedy with Karthi’s black magic tricks which are meticulously planned and executed to deceive his potential customers so that they think they have come under the spell of some demonic spirit And then run to Kaashmora for help who has built a celebrity profile as an exorcist by appearing on television talk shows and promoting himself through newspaper ads One of the most engaging performances of the film is by comedian Vivek who plays Kaashmora’s father He is the one showing the mirror to the society by making sensible and thought-provoking jokes Other characters in the film who initially appear to define the course of the film soon fizzle out including Sharath Lohitashwa — who plays the role of a corrupt minister with a godman in tow to ensure he can continue on his sinister path without drawing the wrath of the gods or evil spirits Sri Divya who first gives the impression that she is a highly-motivated girl determined to expose the fake godmen also fails to make a mark and ends up just as a filler The audience gets to watch two stories in Kaashmora One is the story of a con artist and his antics second is the story of revenge and retribution between two ancient souls The period portion of the film post interval was promoted as the highlight of the film While the makers have managed to get the VFX grand palace set and costumes right they have come up short on storytelling Raj Nayak again played by Karthi is the army commander of a fictional kingdom His character can be defined as an unbeatable and ruthless warrior whose only weakness is women He is smitten by the king’s daughter Ratna Mahadevi played by Nayanthara Following a few twists and turns Raj Nayak kills Ratna Mahadevi’s lover brother and father And he forcefully marries her Unable to match his physical prowess Mahadevi plays a seductress and poisons Raj Nayak However it would be a shame for a warrior of his stature to go down without a fight right Just before Mahadevi beheads him he manages to drive a spear into her gut Just to make sure that their enmity continues for generations to come Mahadevi curses him before she dies And if you are looking for any more spoilers I don’t have any As you can see by now that after a certain point the film become predictable And the stretch of predictable narration is often disrupted by comedy that shakes up audience a bit and fills some interests in them to stay with the film The story eventually leads to good vs evil battle where Raj Nayak and Ratna Mahadevi cross swords once again after seven generations and 8400 full moon days since they killed each other The 2009 film Arundhati seems to have established a template for filmmakers who aspire to explore the hostility between men and women especially if that goes back at least a few hundred years Kaashmora also falls back on this template You may be wondering about the third character of Karthi in the film right It is best if you watch it for yourself in the theatres instead of reading about it in here (Hint: He plays the ghost of Raj Nayak) Meanwhile let’s not compare this film with Baahubali as it would be a grave injustice to both films The visual effects that they have managed to deliver in Kaashmora are commendable Music composer Santhosh Narayanan has done a decent job with the background score Thakida Thakida Oyaa Oyaa and Dhukkku Dhukku Saar numbers work in the favour of the film Kaashmora movie review: CheckKaashmora trailers earlier shared by actor Karthi: #Kaashmora Official Theatrical Trailer Tamil – http://s.tco/Jdewdq3XDL Telugu – http://s.tco/EEXzDXNTup — Actor Karthi (@Karthi_Offl) October 7 2016 The action sequences are very plain and basic The action in the film does not rise to the expectations The battle sequences meanwhile could have been better The makers have been just right selling Kaashmora as a multi-genre film While the horror and period drama let you down the comedy comes as a saving grace Karthi’s performance in all three roles is convincing and entertaining Nayanthara as a warrior queen looks stunning but her character suffers from the wafer-thin script
