Coutinho brace helps Brazil forget Neymar in winning Copa start

first_imgSao Paulo: A brace from Philippe Coutinho handed hosts Brazil a winning start to the Copa America in a 3-0 victory over Bolivia as the absence of superstar Neymar was quickly forgotten. Barcelona’s Coutinho scored from the penalty spot early in the second half and added a close-range header three minutes later. Substitute Everton netted a sensational third five minutes from time to clinch a Group A victory for coach Tite’s tournament favorites in Sao Paulo.

If Brazil’s first half performance was anything to go by, the Paris Saint-Germain star was sorely missed, but Coutinho’s brace at least silenced the jeers that met the team at half-time. “Whistles are part of the game, the fans want us to win and play well, so that’s why they jeer,” said the match-winner, whose goals papered over the cracks of an at times disjointed performance. Also Read – Mary Kom enters quarterfinals, Saweety Boora bows out of World C’ships”We always want their support but we’re focused on the objective, which is the match,” Coutinho told Brazil’s SportTV. “Whistles or cheers, the important thing is to stay focused and get the win.” Brazil made a bright start and predictably dominated the early possession and chances. But surprisingly their greatest threat came from set-pieces with Coutinho’s corner delivery causing panic in the Bolivian backline. Bolivia’s goalkeeper Carlos Lampe made an instinctive block from a Roberto Firmino flick that came straight at him. And a few minutes later, towering center-half Thiago Silva was left unmarked eight yards out to meet another Coutinho delivery, but he inexplicably headed well wide. The pitch at the Morumbi stadium wasn’t helping flowing football, with Bolivia in particular struggling to string passes together. “We’ve got to be honest, Brazil beat us and beat us well,” said Bolivia coach Eduardo Villegas. Brazil, wearing white shirts and blue shorts, weaved almost geometric patterns around their unambitious visitors but struggled to test Lampe. Their best chances came from Bolivian mistakes and Richarlison should have scored into an open goal when a woeful Lampe clearance went straight to him, but the Everton forward failed to lift the ball over defender Adrian, who headed clear from the edge of the 18-yard box.last_img read more

Govt is working to create trust between taxpayer and IT Dept

first_imgNew Delhi: The government is working to create an environment of trust so that there is no “adversarial relationship” between taxpayers and tax department, but believes that the onus of paying due share of taxes in rightful manner rests with the taxpayer, a senior tax official said. Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) Chairman P C Mody said the tax department is using technology to make I-T processes much simpler and a new technological interface is being planned for assessing returns. “We are working on a detailed scheme and I am sure it will see the light of the day very soon”. Also Read – Maruti cuts production for 8th straight month in SepSpeaking at a post Budget event organised by Assocham, Mody said both the tax department and taxpayer are working towards the common goal of nation building and hence there cannot be an “adversarial relationship”. “It has to be a collaborative approach. The taxpayer has upon himself the responsibility of discharging his obligation in a rightful manner and what is due must be paid. “Correspondingly, the department also has the responsibility to ensure that voluntary and compliant taxpayer is given the best of services. And the recalcitrant ones are dealt strictly as per law,” he said. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to CustomsCBDT member Akhilesh Ranjan said the tax department is working to remove “pain points” which is associated with scrutiny process so that enforcement actions do not impede on genuine business activities. “Effort will be to develop trust and cooperation between taxpayer and tax department and to develop that through telling the industry that look the government is aware … we will take measures that can relieve that pain… We are now not living in a age of taxpayer versus tax department. It is a combined effort, it has to be a cooperative effort,” Ranjan said. The CBDT Chairman said in his internal communication with I-T officers, he has emphasised that the speech and conduct of taxmen have to be “above board”. “Wherever instances have been brought to our notice we have taken immediate steps to redress those problems. We (tax department and taxpayers) have to work together”. Mody said this year the number of refunds and quantum of refunds were 20 per cent higher than last year. “Just as the way we believe in revenue mobilisation, but at the same time we are equally conscious of refunding the amount which is due to taxpayers”. The Income Tax Department has issued Rs 64,700 crore worth refunds in the current fiscal, and for full 2018-19 fiscal the amount released was over Rs 1.61 lakh crore. Ranjan further said the department would be launching a scheme of faceless assessment to make it easier for taxpayers to comply, remove pain points which are associated with scrutiny process. In 2019-20 Budget, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said the existing system of I-T scrutiny assessments involves a high-level personal interaction between the taxpayer and the department, which leads to certain undesirable practices on the part of tax officials. “To eliminate such instances, and to give shape to the vision of the Prime Minister, a scheme of faceless assessment in electronic mode involving no human interface is being launched this year in a phased manner.last_img read more

Loonie recovers following dovish interest rate hike Dow soars past 26000

first_imgTORONTO – The loonie rebounded from its earlier losses following the Bank of Canada’s dovish interest rate hike announcement Wednesday, as Wall Street soared to new highs.The Canadian dollar closed at an average trading value of 80.48 cents US, down 0.04 of a U.S. cent, recovering from greater losses earlier in the session after the central bank said it would raise its key interest rate target by a quarter of a percentage point to 1.25 per cent.While the rate hike was widely expected, investors were initially taken aback by the central bank’s cautious tone about future rate hikes.“Typically when markets are uncertain, a rate hike will lead to a stronger loonie. But in this case the rate hike itself was already reflected in market prices … so the real question on investors’ minds was would the Bank of Canada provide more hawkish guidance about future rate hikes?” said Todd Mattina, a chief economist at Mackenzie Investments.“In this case the Bank of Canada highlighted a number of reasons why it would be cautious going forward, which led to the market seeing it as a dovish rate hike.”While the central bank signalled more rate increases are likely over time, it noted the unknowns surrounding the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement — and the potential negatives for Canada — were casting a widening shadow over its outlook.The bank said “some continued monetary policy accommodation will likely be needed” to keep the economy operating close to its full potential.The central bank pointed to unexpectedly solid economic numbers as key drivers behind its decision to hike the rate to 1.25 per cent, up from one per cent. The increase followed hikes in July and September.In equity markets, U.S. stocks moved broadly higher, as the Dow Jones industrial average surged 322.79 points to 26,115.65, closing above 26,000 for the first time. The S&P 500 index was up 26.14 points to 2,802.56 and the Nasdaq composite index was up 74.59 points to 7,298.28.With Wall Street reaching records so often, 1,000-point moves in the Dow have become increasingly commonplace. It’s been just eight trading days since the Dow had its first close above 25,000.Technology and health-care companies accounted for much of the U.S. gains.North of the border, it was a fairly muted day on the S&P/TSX composite index, which rose a modest 27.82 points to 16,326.70, with the health-care, base metals and energy sectors among key advancers.“The TSX is underperforming the U.S. markets,” said Mattina. “It’s really a story of the stronger U.S. marketplace and a bit of a trickle down effect for the TSX.”In commodities, the February crude contract was up 24 cents to US$63.97 per barrel and the February natural gas contract added 10 cents to US$3.23 per mmBTU.The February gold contract was up US$2.10 cents to US$1,339.20 an ounce and the March copper contract was down three cents to US$3.19 a pound.– With a file from The Associated Press.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter.last_img read more

Prime Minister defends relationship with China

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has denied the oft-cited claim that Sri Lanka was ceding control of strategically vital ports to Chinese control and said he didn’t believe the country was falling into a debt trap caused by high-interest Chinese loans, CNBC reported.“We are dealing with China. There are a fair amount of Chinese investments. There are China loans…I can’t see it as a threat,”  Wickremesinghe told CNBC. Sri Lanka and China have agreed to a 99-year lease of the southern Hambantota port. That underlines China’s growing strategic and commercial influence in the Indian Ocean region, and has caused increasing anxiety in neighboring India and the broader region. “We don’t foresee any issues by looking at this from an economic project, as an economic investment,” Wickremesinghe said. “Sri Lanka has been unaligned and have stayed that way since 1948.”Sri Lanka’s opposition, led by former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, is capitalizing on economic hardship, mobilizing supporters to pressure the government into holding early polls. Wickremesinghe, however, said he “can’t see an early election.” For one, Japan wants Hambantota port to be “free of military activities,” Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said last month, according to a report by the Press Trust of India. He claimed his government inherited debt racked up through the mismanagement of the prior administration. “We took over the government and stabilized the economy … they ran away, we were the only ones left.” (Colombo Gazette) read more

Afghanistan UN refugee agency races to provide shelter before onset of winter

Winter “is certainly on the minds of the 1.6 million Afghans we’ve helped return home so far this year – 1.4 million refugees and 200,000 internally displaced returnees,” said Ron Redmond, a spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Geneva. “Many of them are going back to destroyed homes and villages and are going to need shelter assistance before winter weather sets in.”UNCHR said it would distribute about 50,000 shelter kits consisting of 30 wooden poles, a door, two window frames, nails and tools in devastated areas throughout the country.In addition to the kits, tents have also been handed out to families that were particularly hard-hit during years of fighting to provide temporary shelter while homes are rebuilt.As part of its $35-million shelter programme, UNHCR has shipped 240 tons of nails to distribution points throughout Afghanistan, along with 240,000 door hinges and a similar number of tool kits, each containing a hammer, shovel and pickaxe, according to Mr. Redmond.Additionally, the agency has purchased 40,000 cubic metres of timber, and is seeking regional suppliers to provide 263,000 more beams. It is also funding local carpentry workshops in which Afghan craftsmen build doors and windows needed for the shelter kits.UNHCR, which is facing a $42 million funding shortfall in Afghanistan, had originally planned to provide 97,000 shelter kits this year, Mr. Redmond said, but the agency was forced to halve the programme to ensure adequate funds to provide travel assistance for the larger-than-expected number of returnees. read more

10000 Liberians flee to Côte dIvoire fearing rebel attack – UN refugee

UNHCR called on the rebels to protect the civilian population, including the large number of refugees and third-country nationals who had previously found refuge in Liberia after fleeing in the opposite direction from the fighting in Côte d’Ivoire.According to sketchy reports, the agency said the recently formed Liberian rebel movement, MODEL (Movement for Democracy in Liberia), captured Harper, the main town in Liberia’s southeastern Maryland County on Monday.Hundreds of civilians began fleeing southern Liberia late last week after reports of the alleged torture by unknown attackers of an official in River Gee County, which neighbours Maryland County. Over the weekend, UNHCR’s office in Tabou, Côte d’Ivoire, received reports of increasing numbers of arrivals around Prollo, Pato Ide and other border crossing points.UNHCR teams sent to the border found many frightened civilians who had fled Liberia in a hurry. They said they left after hearing rumours that the rebels were approaching, but none had seen any fighting, however. They crossed the Cavally River into Côte d’Ivoire by boat.Border monitors also reported that gunfire was heard overnight Sunday and Monday morning on the Liberian side of the border, near the town of Pleebo. UNHCR and its partners are monitoring the border and providing transport to some of the new arrivals, about 750 of whom have been taken to a transit centre in Tabou. But most of the estimated 10,000 new arrivals are staying in surrounding villages.The new refugee influx into Côte d’Ivoire occurred as High Commissioner Ruud Lubbers was concluding an eight-day, five-nation tour of West Africa. He returned to Geneva yesterday. read more

The Media Company of Tomorrow One Executives Take

first_imgOne of our keynote presentations at the virtual FOLIO: Show Virtual last week included a panel of leading executives in the industry, including F+W Media CEO David Nussbaum. Nussbaum gave one of the most provocative responses during the hour-long discussion, essentially saying that print advertising is an irrevocably declining source of revenue, and that companies that don’t recognize that do so at their own risk. As it turns out, Nussbaum jotted down some notes to the questions I asked the panelists to consider in advance. Here are Nussbaum’s notes, with the questions that prompted his thoughts. Q: When will the industry see some recovery?A: This is totally unclear, but there is a sense that we have found the bottom of the market. However, with consumers still under siege (credit difficulties, high unemployment, no or low salary increases), it is hard to see what the impetus will be for growth.Q: What will the recovery look like?A: I don’t think it will be ad driven. But rather, we’ll see an expansion of marketing budgets looking for “non-traditional ways to reach buyers.” That will mean everything from custom content solutions, to one-to-one marketing, and expanding our portfolio around our core brands to create new, profitable products and subscription services, like Webinars, which are a growing part of our business. Q: Will we see the robust industry health of 2005 to 2006 again?A: I really don’t know.Q: How will the business be different going forward?A: In a few ways.     1. Print advertising will continue to be a no growth-to-declining business.2. Events will rebound, but event producers will need to find a way to mitigate the high costs of exhibiting. 3. High quality and unique content, always at a premium, will be even more important as the Holy Grail of dollars for content will become even more intense. 4. Staff size will be kept lean, with those making it through the recession owning a wider variety of skill sets than those who came before. We need to be bringing new talent to the industry from outside our standard recruitment channels, and producing new ideas across e-commerce, retail, social media. There’s no limit to what we can learn. 5. Online advertising rates will continue to erode, but engagement will be at a premium. 6. Social networks, location-based marketing, custom content selection—these will all be critical for future media providers. And those who aren’t already building their communities may get left behind.Q: Are media companies being disintermediated on the reader side through social media and blogs?A: Yes and no. Yes in that there is much more competition for community building, for content presentation and for lead generation. No in that media companies are becoming strong participants in the blogosphere and in using social networks to both build community and drive traffic to sell stuff. F+W and other enthusiast media companies have a unique advantage in that our communities already exist, created around a common interest or goal. Being of and in the community, and respected and trusted though our own blogs, positions us well. Social media interactions are the key. Q: What are the most important things media companies can do now? Adjust organizational structure? Change their approach to content creation? Layoffs? Debt reduction?    A: Media companies need to find a way to focus as vertically as possible, make community building the core of existence, ensure that staff is cross-trained, fleet of mind,  and willing to adapt to radical change comfortably. Portfolio management is critical. Organize your resources around the core communities and properties with the most opportunity for success. Q: What will the media company of 2012 look like?A: Community focused, really good at demographic analysis, excellent at nurturing around verticals, diverse in terms of product offerings and delivery systems, Web centric, advertising will be considered gravy, customers pay for content and contribute to the creation of content. Q: What is the most important lesson og the 2007-2009 recession?A: The sheer desire of people to adapt and to participate in tomorrow. I have really been impressed with the willingness of people to learn and to change.last_img read more

The pair was spotted living it up on a yacht in Monaco. Apparently, they have spent the last two weeks at the Cannes Film Festival have now moved down the coastline ahead of the F1 Grand Prix.Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner showed off their assets in glamorous ensembles, with Bella modelling a plunging mustard yellow pencil dress and Kendall stunning in a bronze lurex jumpsuit. Both models looked camera ready as they let their hair down. Reportedly their faces were preened to perfection and painted with expertly applied make-up.Bella and Kendall seemed to be having the time of their lives on the yacht. They were joined by Kris Jenner, who shared a glass of wine with Bella as they looked deep in conversation. Bella Hadid recently landed in some hot water for her Calvin Klein ad which featured her kissing CGI Instagram model Lil Miquela. Calvin Klein reportedly apologized for the ad when Bella Hadid was accused of ‘queerbaiting’ because she shared a kiss with a fake woman in a commercial despite being heterosexual herself.’We understand and acknowledge how featuring someone who identifies as heterosexual in a same-sex kiss could be perceived as queerbaiting,’ the brand wrote in a statement posted to its Twitter page.  Kendall JennerGetty Images’As a company with a longstanding tradition of advocating for LGBTQ+ rights, it was certainly not our intention to misrepresent the LGBTQ+ community. We sincerely regret any offense caused,’ they concluded. The CGI Instagram model in question, Lil MIquela was created in 2016 as an Instagram personality by a startup called Brud, which TechCrunch valued at $125 million early this year. It looks like Bella is recovering nicely from the Calvin Klein snafu. The after shower video might have been her way of letting fans know that she is doing well.Kendall Jenner recently broke up with her boyfriend Ben Simmons. But she isn’t letting a break-up bring her down. The model seems to be moving on from her ex. Bella on the other hand seems to be going strong with her boyfriend The Weeknd.

New kind of smartglass changes color and produces electricity

first_img Researchers invent smart window that tints and powers itself Many types of smart-glass have been created, some that display a tint when it gets sunny out, others that change to prevent heat from coming in, etc. In this new effort, the researchers sought to add something new—production of electricity. Realizing that many types of glass are subjected to rain and wind, they sought to find a way to coat a window that would take advantage of triboelectrics—capturing the energy in static electricity that occurs when two materials meet.They came up with a two layer solution, one layer to capture the energy in raindrops, the other to do the same for wind. In the first layer, the researchers developed nano-sized generators that would take advantage of the positive charge in raindrops that develops as it rubs against air on its way down from clouds and then as it crashes into a car’s windshield. The second layer consisted of a sandwich of two charged sheets of plastic with tiny springs between them. As wind pressure develops on an accelerating vehicle, the plastic sheets are pushed closer together, creating an electric current.Together the two layers result in a glass that is initially clear, but then develops a blue tint—they also generated as much as 130 milliwatts of electricity per square meter of glass, which the researchers point out, is enough to charge a sleeping smartphone. Moving forward, the team suggests that such types of glass could be used with wireless networks because it is not based on a separate power source. But, before that can happen, the team is looking into ways to store the power that is generated. They think it might be possible to embed see-through super-capacitors in the glass as well. At this time, it is not clear how much glass with all that embedded technology would cost.

Journal information: ACS Nano (Phys.org)—A team of researchers working at the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a type of smart-glass that not only changes color, but creates electricity. They have published a description of their work and the glass they have produced and some ideas on what the new kind of glass might be used for in their paper published in ACS Nano. More information: Motion-Driven Electrochromic Reactions for Self-Powered Smart Window System, ACS Nano, Article ASAP. DOI: 10.1021/acsnano.5b00706AbstractThe self-powered system is a promising concept for wireless networks due to its independent and sustainable operations without an external power source. To realize this idea, the triboelectric nanogenerator (TENG) was recently invented, which can effectively convert ambient mechanical energy into electricity to power up portable electronics. In this work, a self-powered smart window system was realized through integrating an electrochromic device (ECD) with a transparent TENG driven by blowing wind and raindrops. Driven by the sustainable output of the TENG, the optical properties, especially the transmittance of the ECD, display reversible variations due to electrochemical redox reactions. The maximum transmittance change at 695 nm can be reached up to 32.4%, which is comparable to that operated by a conventional electrochemical potentiostat (32.6%). This research is a substantial advancement toward the practical application of nanogenerators and self-powered systems.last_img read more

Two classic short stories by Gabriel García Márquez that you should read

first_imgRelated posts:The great and magical Gabo Texas university acquires Gabriel García Márquez’s personal archive Nobel-winning Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez dead at 87 Nobel writer Gabriel García Márquez hospitalized in Mexico Facebook Comments Take a break this evening. After you’ve gone to Mass, or eaten your matzo, or taken a dip in the ocean or whatever other activity you might be doing today, on this 20th day of the fourth month of the year — take a break. And go read two of Gabriel García Márquez’s most famous short stories.The Nobel laureate from Colombia died Friday at the age of 87 in Mexico City. Tributes are pouring in from everywhere for one of the 20th century’s greatest writers. His homeland will hold a special ceremony for him Tuesday.
