New Delhi: Apple plans to set up up to three brick-and-mortar outlets in India besides an online store as the iPhone maker looks to further cement its position in one of the world’s largest smartphone markets.According to sources privy to the development, Apple has conveyed to the government its plans to set up physical as well as an online store, in line with its ‘global experience’ centres for Apple-branded products.The move comes at a time when global smartphone manufacturers have reiterated their commitment to the Indian market and are looking to significantly ramp up their manufacturing capabilities in the country.

One of the sources said Apple is looking at assembling more models in the country. Apple did not respond to a query on this issue.In a major push to single-brand retail, the government last week had relaxed FDI norms, offering players more flexibility on local sourcing norms. It also did away a provision that required companies to mandatorily set up a brick-and-mortar store before getting into online retail trading.

Amid growing concerns around US-China trade war, India now has an opportunity to woo companies that had so far concentrated their manufacturing operations in China.The government has been engaged in a dialogue with key players to understand their concerns and requirements.A recent report by industry body IAMAI had pointed out that India’s mobile manufacturing lacks scale and depth despite its ambition to become global production hub, and the country needs to “think big” by manufacturing at scale, producing high-end phones, and incentivising exports.The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) report had also noted that the global handsets market is worth about USD 467 billion (about Rs 32 lakh crore), and this demand is being met almost entirely by China, Vietnam, South Korea and Taiwan.The same report stated that in 2018-19, India exported mobile handsets worth USD 1.4 billion compared to USD 2.7 billion in 2012-13.The production of mobile handsets had reached 225 million units in 2017-18 and India has the potential to manufacture one billion handsets annually, it had said.
(A teepee is sitting at the foot of Parliament Hill, not where organizers wanted it further up towards the Peace Tower, in the heart of Canada 150 celebrations.) Mark Blackburn APTN National NewsAs rain poured down, Jocelyn Wabano-Iahtail addressed the media outside a teepee set up at the foot of Parliament Hill, on unceded Algonquin territory, the day after a run in with RCMP and Hill security staff.“You have been speaking for 524 years,” Wabano-Iahtail told the reporter, and to Canadians. “It’s our turn to talk and it’s time for you to listen.”At times, Iahtail is having to speak over rehearsals on a giant stage set up for the Canada Day concert set for Saturday up at the top of the hill, where the group wanted to erect the teepee.Moments before Wabano-Iahtail’s interview, her group abruptly ended a news conference after being “disrespected” by a member of the national media, and where she declared a state of emergency over the state of Indigenous communities in Canada.“We’re declaring a state of crisis in what’s happening here in what you know as Canada, that there is a hunt taking place on our Indigenous human beings,” she said. The agenda of the news conference covered water, the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous women and Canada’s 150 celebrations.(Johnny Wabigwan, from Thessalon First Nation, is in handcuffs at a detainment tent on Parliament Hill.

Marie, Ont., to launch the ceremonial action.Ten people were arrested during the clash.(Brendan Nahwegezhic outside the teepee on Parliament Hill.

We were met with conflict … we did not mean any harm. I hear about equality all the time, but where is it? People in our communities are living in poverty.”On Saturday at 4 p.m., as hundreds of thousands of people are expected to flood downtown Ottawa to celebrate Canada Day, the teepee is going to be moved.“With hundreds of thousands of people, settler people in this area, it’s going to be really dangerous to be Indigenous on Canada day,” said Freddy Stoneypost from Sagamok Anishnawbek. “Especially in downtown Ottawa.”Officials have not told the group that there are threats – Stoneypost said as a group they felt it was best to leave Parliament Hill.He said it will be replaced.“It’s called a Die-in,” he said. “It’s kind of like a human installation, human performance art.”(Candace Day Neveau at a news conference on Parliament Hill Thursday. “How can I celebrate Canada 150? She asked. Photo: Mark Blackburn/APTN) Candace Day Neveau, who was part of the group who fought to get the teepee on the hill, said the government had an opportunity to get the Canada 150 celebrations right by making reconciliation a big part of July 1 celebrations.“How can I celebrate Canada 150 when our children live like they do?” asked Day Neveau. “Celebrating Canada 150 is hard because of what has happened to our people … we will be celebrating Indigenous people who are pushing back.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was on Prince Edward Island Thursday.The push to get a teepee on Parliament Hill comes a week after the federal Liberals announced that it is taking the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal to federal court to “clarify” rulings ordering the government to comply with its demands to fix the First Nation child welfare system.Speaking at a curling rink packed with Islanders, Trudeau said he recognizes that Indigenous Canadians may not be celebrating in the same way as others across the country.Trudeau told the crowd in Montague that “the history of the last 150 years for Indigenous peoples has not been as positive.”A ceremony is planned for Thursday 6 p.m. at the teepee.-with files from the Canadian Press
“Almost 60 countries – most of them in Africa – face such critical shortages of health workers that they cannot provide basic health care to all their people,” Mr. Ban said at the Global Forum for Human Resources in Health, which expects over 1,000 government leaders and experts to meet under the auspices of the World Health Organization (WHO).In his statement to the gathering, Mr. Ban emphasized the crucial part that health care plays in economic development and in reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to reduce extreme poverty and other global ills by 2015.“I appreciate that the issues are complex,” he said, maintaining that the crisis in the world’s health workforce requires different stakeholders to take action in a range of areas – migration, development, education, finance and more. However, he pointed to renewed momentum throughout the international community to tackle large challenges in health care, as well as advances in knowledge. “We have the resources and the know-how,” he concluded: “Let us work together, with coherent and coordinated action, to translate commitments into protected livelihoods and saved lives.” The first Global Forum for Human Resources in Health will run through 7 March. 3 March 2008The time has come to focus on supporting and retaining health workers – “the true lifesavers in the society of every nation”– Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the first-ever world forum on the topic, which convened in Kampala, Uganda, today.
“Sexual violence against women is not cultural, it’s criminal. It’s not a women’s issue, it’s a human rights issue. It’s for both men and women to make sure that women have the right to their body,” Margot Wallström, a Swedish politician with a long history in defending women’s rights, told a news briefing in New York, citing the need to end impunity as a priority area. “Women carry half the sky, so they have to be valued that way.”Ms. Wallström was introduced by Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro who said the new appointment was “a major step” towards protecting civilians subjected to sexual violence not only in conflict but also in post-conflict situations.“Ending sexual violence in conflict situations remains a top priority for the Secretary-General who has called for increased actions by the international community to prevent violence, to protect individuals, to punish perpetrators, and to provide redress to victims,” she added.Today’s presentation came just a day after the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) reported that more than 8,000 women were raped in the DRC during fighting between warring factions last year. Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Alain Le Roy told the briefing that such abuse was occurring not just in the DRC. “In most of our missions we have this extremely serious question of sexual violence,” he said.In the DRC the UN is combating the scourge by developing a greater presence on the ground, escorting women going to market or fetching firewood or water, developing early warning systems, and working with local mayors.“At the same time, it is not enough,” he added, noting that UN peacekeepers in all DRC numbered 20,000 soldiers while just the two war-torn eastern Kivu provinces, where most rapes occurred, had a population of 10 million people. “We cannot be behind… [every] tree.” Ms. Wallström said the DRC would be one of the first places she would visit, but cautioned that her main challenge would be living up to all the expectations put in her given the breadth of the mandate and its limited length of only two years. “We’ll also have to create some success stories if you ask me,” she added. “It is also obvious where the hotspots are, where everybody expects us to be present and to do as much as we can. Of course, the DRC is the obvious example…“I will never be able to live up to all these expectations,” she said. But, she added, “of course I feel honoured and humbled and excited. It’s a tough task and the mandate is short, two years, but it is mission irresistible to me at this moment.” 9 February 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s newly appointed Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict promised today a more coherent and effective battle against the scourge, citing recent mass rapes in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and calling her new task “mission irresistible.”

“The Secretary-General urges all political actors to reject all forms of violence and intimidation and refrain from any action that can further disrupt the democratic process and stability in the country,” a statement issued by his spokesman said, reaffirming the UN’s commitment to continue supporting the consolidation of democracy and stabilisation in Haiti.“He strongly urges all stakeholders to work towards the peaceful completion of the electoral process without delay, through the forging of a consensual solution that will allow the people of Haiti to exercise their right to vote for the election of a new President and the remaining representatives of the new Parliament.”Tensions have been simmering since the first round of the elections in October, and Jovenel Moise from the governing party and former government executive Jude Celestin, the two top vote getters then, were set to face each other in the run-off, originally set for 27 December.According to press reports, this second round was again postponed on Friday amid violent protests and the opposition’s refusal to participate.The transfer of power to a new president is constitutionally mandated to take place on 7 February.The UN has maintained a peacekeeping operation, the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), since 2004. With more than 4,500 troops and police deployed currently deployed in Haiti, its mandate has evolved over the years from supporting a transitional government to embracing earthquake recovery and facilitating the political process.
Cutlery which delivers an electric shock to change the taste of food could help cut down salt in fast food, researchers have said. Scientists have developed a pair of chopsticks, that can make food taste saltier, sour or bitter without the need for extra seasoning.They are also working on a spoon and fork that could make food taste spicier or sweeter.This “digital seasoning” technology could allow diners to tinker with the taste of their food as they eat so it suits them.It could also help food manufacturers and restaurants to reduce the amount of salt they put into food without compromising taste.The utensils work by delivering pulses of electricity to the tip of the tongue to stimulate the taste buds.Dr Nimesha Ranasinghe, an assistant professor of computer science at the University of Maine who led the work on the electric cutlery, said:”This technology is aimed at overlaying a virtual taste sensation. Depending on the food or beverage, it will augment the flavor.”For example, when we eat mashed potato by applying an additional layer of electric salt, the overall flavor is enhanced.”Some Chinese takeaway food and ready meals were recently found to contain up to 11 times more salt than a bag of crisps – more than half an adults daily allowance. Salt is known to be linked to serious health problems like heart disease and stroke. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Dr Ranasinghe said: “We have some early findings of simulating sweetness, a mint-cool sensation and hot or spicy sensations. But this thermal stimulation requires bulky heat sinks to accurately control.”He added further work was needed before this digital sugar and electric chilli powder could be added to utensils. The technology, which Dr Ranasinghe initially developed while at the University of Singapore, works by installing two electrodes into each chopstick or the end of a spoon.These send a weak current through the tip of the tongue when they touch it to stimulate the taste buds.By controlling the frequency, amplitude and strength of the electric current, the researchers can stimulate either sourness, saltiness and bitterness. They say up to 80% of people experience changes in saltiness and sourness with the devices and 70% can sense changes in bitterness.Dr Ranasinghe, whose work is published in the journal Food Research International, initially developed a fork that could replicate saltiness but has since developed a spoon, chopsticks and a soup bowl that can trigger all three tastes.He said he was also working on ways of replicating sweetness and spiciness by rapidly heating and cooling the tongue.It could lead to a spoon that allows desserts to taste sweet while having lower sugar levels or a fork that can give a curry extra heat without the need for extra chillies. But using a pair of electric chopsticks could help cut salt levels without leaving it tasting bland, said Dr Ranasinghe.

It doesn’t all have to be organic and perfect and beautiful – it can be functional and fun as well.”“We want to strip back the snobbery and elitism of it as well – the intimidating veneer that is put through in cookery. You can just pop a couple of cans, pour it into a pot, stir it, flavour it and there’s your dinner.“Cooking has become this whole lifestyle thing but it should be fun and I want to make it fun again.” “There’s no food waste as you’re using the entire tin, no plastic waste as you can recycle tins endlessly, and it saves time.”I’ve been living off tinned food while writing this book for the last month and I feel wonderful.”Ms Monroe claims she is the first to write a book of recipes made from tinned food since Ambrose Heath in 1939, who wrote Good Dishes From Tinned Foods.Indeed, many of her older readers have delighted in sending her recipes passed down through their families.She said: “I’ve had lots of recipes given to me from nans who have their own ways of with tins that they’ve cooked over the years. It has fallen out of favour now though. Chefs and cooks are too snobby about tinned food, a writer has said as she prepares to publish the first canned food recipe book since 1939.Award-winning writer and cook Jack Monroe has called on cooks across the country to re-examine the humble tin, arguing that the contents can be just as healthy and delicious as fresh food – and much cheaper.Her new book, Tin Can Cook, is full of surprising recipes made entirely from tinned food and a handful of store-cupboard ingredients including curry powder, garlic paste, lazy ginger and frozen onions.She told the Sunday Telegraph: “There’s a lot of snobbery around tinned food but I want to lift the lid on it and show people you can make really good meals out of it.”We are emphasising that cookery doesn’t have to be this elitist or fashionable thing you’re sold on television.”It’s about looking at what’s in your cupboards and knocking something together – that’s what it’s about for most people.”Recipes she has cooked up include a cannelini bean beurre blanc, which she says is “delicious made with cider if you don’t have wine. The main ingredient is a dash of vinegar and a can of beans.” She also raves about beef bourguignon made with canned stewed steak. Another surprising recipe she tried, which worked, is roasted tinned potatoes. She said: “I roasted tinned potatoes, they’re really nice, they get really fluffy because they’re pre-cooked. You just need to use really hot fat.”The food writer, who became an expert in thrifty cooking when falling on hard times meant she became a food bank user, has a blog that is read by millions who want to know how to cook good, healthy family meals for pennies per portion.She argued: “There’s a lot of myths in tinned food – it’s quite surprising, tinned potatoes are a really good source of vitamin C, and tinned sardines give you your full daily allowance of vitamin B12, tinned fruit and veg is just as nutritious for you as fresh. Tinned tomatoes contain more lycopene. Because of the canning mechanism it retains nutrients.
Although OS X has made great strides in the last half decade in regaining market share, the various permutations of Windows still rule most of the computing world, largely thanks to the reliance of enterprise and government networks. Now one of the largest and most powerful countries on Earth is ready to dump Microsoft as a client, and make no mistake… it’s a move indicative of a growing schism with the United States similar to that we experienced in the Cold War.The country we’re talking about here is Russia, who plans to transition its computer infrastructure from Windows to open-source operating systems like Linux. The order was given by none less than Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who wants the transition completed by 2015… and who also wants to create a national repository for open-source applications similar to Apple’s App Store.AdChoices广告When we mentioned the Cold War earlier in this post, we didn’t mean to imply that Russia’s adoption of Linux would somehow lead to global nuclear war. However, it;s undeniable that Russia and America’s diplomatic relations have been frosty lately, especially when it comes to arms talks. Given that, Russia’s move to divorce its IT infrastructure from relying upon an American company’s operating system seems like another small step away from relying upon America.Read more at Electronista

What’s on tap for this week’s weather? Check our local weather coverage.In case you missed them, here are some of the top stories of the weekend:Can county cultivate farming?As local farmers struggle to make living off land, food advocates, some officials say Clark County can do more to ensure their survival.The total number of farms in the county fell from 2,101 in 2007 to 1,929 in 2012, according to the U.S. Census of Agriculture. The market value of products dropped from $52 million to $50 million.Clark County, with its proximity to booming Portland, is experiencing its biggest growth in population in a decade, driving up the price of land and putting more pressure on agriculture.“Houses are a lot more profitable than carrots,” said Jordan Boldt, executive director of the Vancouver Farmers Market. “Where agriculture falls into that will be a really interesting situation.”
SEOUL, South Korea — North and South Korea fired artillery shells into each other’s waters Monday, a flare-up of animosity between the rivals that forced residents of five front-line South Korean islands to evacuate to shelters, South Korean officials said. The South Korean artillery fire came after shells from a North Korean live-fire drill fell south of the Koreas’ disputed western sea boundary, an official with South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said. No shells from either side were fired at any land or military installations, said the official, who provided no other details and spoke on condition of anonymity because of office rules.The exchange of fire followed Pyongyang’s earlier, unusual announcement that it would conduct live-fire drills in seven areas north of the poorly marked Yellow Sea boundary between the countries. North Korea routinely test-fires artillery and missiles into the ocean, but it’s rare for the country to disclose such training plans in advance. The announcement was seen as an expression of Pyongyang’s frustration at making little progress in its recent push to win outside aid. In addition to sending residents of five front-line South Korean islands to shelters, Lee Han-seok, an official with Ongjin county, which governs the islands, also said that ferry service linking the islands to the mainland was stopped.Kang Myeong-sung, speaking from a shelter on Yeonpyeong island, which is in sight of North Korean territory, said he hadn’t seen any fighter jets but heard the boom of artillery fire. In 2010, North Korean artillery killed four South Koreans on Yeonpyeong. Pyongyang said it was responding to earlier South Korean drills in disputed waters.
‘Spider-Verse’ Creators Plan Sony Marvel TV ShowsWatch These Movies Before ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Stay on target Spider-Man Homecoming is just around the corner! While we don’t know much one thing we do know is that it is tied to the official Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which is simply good enough for most fans.One thing that put the nail in the coffin for our favorite web-slinger in theaters was his endless amount of villains. Studios are wanting more too quickly. Sam Rami’s third installment of the series showed the confusion on hand. Sony tried picking up the pieces when they rebooted the series with Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. Before they could get another installment in, red flags from reviews began to pop up all over. This would kill what was to be a larger look into Spider-Man’s most iconic enemies, the Sinister Six.After leaked emails stirred the pot at Sony, it felt like hard to obtain franchises quickly began to free up. Sony and Marvel came to an agreement to let Spider-Man swing into their popular main line pictures, only if Sony could still obtain the Spider-Man license to release stand alone films.In Homecoming, our main villain The Vulture is played by Michael Keaton. We’ve also heard rumors that The Tinkerer may be the one behind the Vulture’s mechanical suit. Plus room for a third villain, maybe teased for the next movie? My thought is, could it be the Green Goblin? Could it be any Goblin for that matter? Let’s break down some of Parker’s most vicious villains, The Goblins.GREEN GOBLINNorman Osbourn has always been a thorn in Spider-Man’s side. The owner of Oscorp has done despicable things to not only to Peter and his loved ones but to Norman’s son Harry Osbourn as well. The Green Goblin always seems to be Spider-Man’s main nemesis in any reiteration of his tale. We saw William Defoe portray the Green Goblin in Raimi’s films. Then years later, we are reintroduced to the Green Goblin in Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man films, only this time the baddie ends up being Peter’s close friend Harry Osborn. This was possibly the worst iteration of the character, more-so than Rami’s Robo Green Goblin. Why has the Green Goblin been so difficult to adapt to film? Both actors who portrayed Norman were diabolical. I honestly blame the look. The Green Goblin has always had a terrifying look to him. A pointed nose almost reaching a pointed chin, with an almost cartoon-like grin from ear to ear. Early makeup tests of Raimi’s Goblin (that are floating out there) show exactly how the character should have looked from the beginning. Could we see the return of Spider-Man’s most diabolical enemy in Homecoming? I honestly don’t think so. The character needs time to breath. I say Let the Sinister Six build throughout a few more films and have Norman step in to bring them all together. And for the love of Aunt May, give us the practical effects Green Goblin mask that we all deserve!HOBGOBLINWho is The Hobgoblin?! Either of the Kingsley twins? The Kingpin’s son, Richard Fisk? Ned Leeds? How about the Jason Macendale? The character of Hobgoblin has always been a conundrum for fans of the comics. So much so that the creators had a hard time pegging down the character to one identity. This is probably why we never saw an adaptation of Hobgoblin in any of the movies. Now would be a great time to maybe hang up the green cowl for the orange one. In Homecoming, give us a more vicious Goblin. One that is closer to the Macendale Hobgoblin where he is transforming underneath the mask. I’ve always enjoyed the Hobgoblin’s look over the Green Goblin. Plus I really enjoy that he uses actual jack o’lanterns and not cybernetic bombs. Though not very practical, there are ways of getting around this with magic entering the Marvel Universe with last year’s hit, Doctor Strange.DEMOGOBLINHave you noticed that each iteration of the Goblin gets more and more extreme? Some would say almost out of hand. The 90’s were an “edgy” time and with that came more edgy villains. Demo’s essence was fused with late Hobgoblin wielder Jason Macendale’s after he sold his soul to N’astirh for more power. After a battling Moon Knight and Ghost Rider, Hobgoblin was able to split off from his demon half, thus creating Demogoblin. An extreme hellfire version of his original goblin form infused with mystical powers. Obviously, we would not see Demo until Hob was thrown into the mix for a film adaptation. But even if they tried to get past that, involving the ‘Righteous’ storyline into the mix, would be a bit intense for a Spider-man film. This is also why we will probably never see Cletus Kasady in a Spider-Man film.GREY GOBLINDid you know Gwen Stacey and Norman Osbourn had twins? Marvel loves twins! Twins Gabriel and Sarah were in hiding until Peter Parker went to find them and tell them the truth about their deranged father. Spider-Man meets them on the Brooklyn Bridge, the same bridge Gwen on. Gabriel, being brainwashed by his father lashes out at Spider-Man thinking he is his father (yet another lie by Norman) tries attacking Spider-Man only to have police fire at them, wounding Sarah as she almost perishes the same way her mother did. Luckily Spider-Man rescues her and Gabriel runs off to infuse himself with the goblin serum after finding out that Spider-man was actually telling the truth, creating The Grey Goblin. This is one of the newest version of the Goblin. If used in Homecoming they would have to ditch the entire backstory as Peter is still a kid but would ultimately make no sense.JACK O’LANTERNThough, not a Goblin at all. Jack o’lantern controls Oscorp technology of his very own, flying around on a glider chucking pumpkin bombs like the Goblins before him. The original Jack o’lantern ends up being ex-CIA agent Jason Macendale, AKA: The Hobgoblin. Before dawning the Hobgoblin outfit, Jason became a hitman for hire after leaving the CIA. The beauty of Jason Macendale’s character is that he goes between both Hobgoblin and Jack o’lantern identities. These could be two brand new villain IP’s in one that Marvel has not even toyed with yet. Plus I feel each identity would look amazing in a new Spider-Man picture. Of course, there were other versions of Jack o’lantern in later comics. Steven Mark Levins, his brother, and Mad Jack. With these stories, the Jack o’lantern character gets very mystical having his head detach from his body and explode on enemies. I highly doubt we will see ol’ Jack in Homecoming. But if we did, I’d probably jump out of my seat in pure joy that this character as finally gotten the attention it deserves.So looking over all the Goblins, it looks as if Green Goblin still reigns supreme being the most cohesive villain for Spider-Man to battle. Though I’m confident that Sony will steer clear of the Goblin story for the first film and give Peter a more grounded storyline. I honestly didn’t even touch on Peter turning into a goblin himself and the over the top War Goblin army. Hell, even Ultimate Goblin would be a bit much for the film franchise. Honestly, I’m anticipating Jack to take us by surprise. But I’m not holding my breath.
(Phys.org) — French company Eole Water has announced that they have developed and are now in the process of selling wind turbines that have been modified to produce fresh drinking water. Company reps say the new turbines should be a boon to remote communities that have limited access to fresh drinking water. Citation: French company uses wind turbine to create fresh water (2012, May 1) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-05-french-company-turbine-fresh.html The initial product, called the WMS1000 is capable, the company claims, of producing up to 1000 liters of clean fresh water every day in a humid climate. They also say the turbines are based on existing technology and are easy to maintain and use.The turbines work by combining two current types of technology; traditional generation of electricity using wind as the driving force, and compressors commonly used by dehumidifiers and refrigerators. Anyone who has ever seen a dehumidifier in action can understand right away how the new turbines work. Air is pulled in, cooled and compressed, causing moisture in it to condense to water where it can be removed and used. The new turbines create electricity in the same way as other wind generators, some of which is used to run the compressor. The water that is produced drips down to the base of the turbine tower where it is filtered and delivered for use. Most that buy and use such a system would also likely need to add a collecting tank to hold water for use during peak times.Eole Water has also added extra features to the turbine and tower to make them more robust. One of those is large filters on the front of the turbine to keep out dust and dirt particles. Another is the ability to easily raise and lower the entire turbine and tower for maintenance and repair. The company claims one tower would be able to produce all the water needed for a town of two to three thousand people, though of course that would depend on where the town is located. Those in arid areas would find water output much less as there would be less water available to pull from the air.The new turbines do have one major drawback and that is the price, which is close to three quarters of a million US dollars per system, though the company says it expects that figure to decline as more units are made and sold.

A profound collection of art, with paintings from all over the country, were brought together at an exhibition titled- ‘Synergy of Talent’, organised by an art curator, Vikram Sethi. The event took place at ITC Sheraton Hotel in the national Capital from April 30 to May 11 where paintings depicted a life of its own and each painting derived beauty from the painter’s soul.Emerging talented artists namely, Rashmie Tyagi, Ambereen Dharamsey, Rosalind Malik, Anita Dinesh, Chandana Bhattarcharjee, Meher, and Jatin Chowdhery depicted their unique artworks. Cynthia Federicks, advisor to the Maharaja of Kapurthala was the Guest of Honour and she expressed immense delight after looking at the paintings.

It gave an impression of a static electricity on the canvas. Her painting was also recently bought by actor Hrithik Roshan and he praised and thanked her for the same.Paintings by Abereen Dharamsey which showed the Mumbai city landscapes were also ecstatic with vbrant colours. An Artist from Delhi, Rosalind Malik presented her painting in a distinct European style and a special Moulin Rouge way depicting myriad figures in bright colours. Artists like Chandana Bhattarcharjee and Anita Dinesh painted spiritual figures and depicted them in a pretty serene manner.Vikram Sethi has won the Bharat Nirman award for the best art curator of the year 2015.

Officials in Moscow confirmed Friday that North Korean despot Kim Jong Un may attend ceremonies next year commemorating the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. It would be Kim’s first public foreign visit since coming to power in December 2011.“Yes, such an invitation was sent,” confirmed Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, speaking to Reuters.The news comes at a particularly conspicuous moment. On Friday, U.S. federal investigators accused North Korea of being behind the hacking attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment. An escalation of cyber threats has compelled Sony to cancel the release of “The Interview,” a controversial comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco that depicts the two being sent on a mission to assassinate Kim.The film’s plot riled Pyongyang — and, leaked e-mails revealed, Sony executives — and instigated one of the strangest geopolitical spats of the year, with many in the United States reacting angrily to Sony’s acquiescence in the face of North Korean “terror.”Meanwhile, Putin has also been in the spotlight. On Thursday, he held a defiant three-hour-long year-end news conference, where he inveighed against the “external” forces that had conspired to undermine Russia’s economy. Sanctions imposed by the West, a slide in oil prices and a free-falling ruble have all made the end of 2014 a gloomy time for the Russian president.But his invitation to Kim is not just meant as a rebuke of the U.S. and its allies. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union helped prop up the totalitarian regime in Pyongyang. Now Russia needs North Korean cooperation in its bid to build a pipeline that would boost gas exports to South Korea, Reuters reports. As is often the case in Moscow, energy policy usually outweighs other imperatives.Russia celebrates the Soviet Union’s victory in World War II annually on May 9. This year, Putin marked the occasion in Crimea — the Black Sea region that had controversially been annexed from Ukraine just months before. Standing at the historic and strategic port of Sevastopol, Putin spoke at length of the Russian glory and sacrifice that inextricably bound Crimea to Moscow.His ironclad nationalist rhetoric set the stage for the rest of the year. A pro-Russian separatist rebellion in eastern Ukraine has led to thousands of deaths and deepened tensions between Russia and the West. Given that precedent, the presence of Kim among other dignitaries of the post-Soviet world could perhaps be less controversial.© 2014, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:Putin offered to support Venezuela in case of war with Colombia, book claims Rebel attack on Ukraine chopper kills 14 as Russia sees war Putin’s Russia expands Latin American role, Kelly says Russia back to fishing in troubled waters in Latin America, Costa Rica expert tells US congressional committee
China imports record banana volume … Chinese cherry production, imports to rise in 2019 … November 12 , 2018 From the pages of Produce Business UKThe thing that I take for granted that I forget from a foreign perspective is end delivery is 30 minutes, which is quite remarkable,” says Richard McKenzie, partner in retail and consumer goods, Asia Pacific, at consultancy Oliver Wyman.The retail expert estimates that in the microcosm of his Shanghai office, around 98 percent of staff buy groceries online, with the channel making up a 60-70 percent market share.“Now that is young, well-paid, time-poor people, but it gives you a sense of how far it can go,” he clarifies.McKenzie points to statistics that even claim almost half the population of greater Shanghai buys its groceries online, but he believes those figures might be suspect.And of course, Shanghai is not necessarily reflective of the entire country, with the rest of China typically “three to four years behind” what happens in the modern metropolis.Gathering consumer data in China is notoriously difficult unless you work within the rather oligopolistic sphere of Alibaba and JD/Tencent, but anecdotes like this are certainly strong signals for the direction of e-retail. With his colleagues Wai-Chan Chan and James Yang, McKenzie co-authored the report ‘Chinese Grocery’s Age of Empires’ earlier this year, focusing on how these two nebulous ecosystems were vying for power and the innovative methods used to capture market share.The report highlighted 60 percent of mobile app usage in China came from the JD/Tencent and Alibaba ecosystems.JD includes WeChat and a plethora of other companies and platforms, while Alibaba is renowned for establishing the world’s biggest shopping event, Single’s Day, which takes place every November 11, as well as the payment processing service Alipay. Some 97 percent of mobile payments in China are processed within these two systems, and Oliver Wyman estimates people use their mobiles to pay for around 35 percent of grocery purchases.Nearly 10 percent of Chinese people shop online for groceries — compared with just over 7 percent in the UK – and the consultancy sees room for growth, especially considering around one in 20 people buys exclusively online.The Chinese e-retail space is complex, but in this interview with PBUK, McKenzie distills the market to its essence and what can be learned for Western retailers and suppliers. He exclaims online-to-offline (O2O) is definitely not an experiment and is “here to stay,” while explaining the philosophy driving change and how buying functions are set to become more centralized. Q: To begin, would you be able to give us a summary of your perspective of what’s happening in Chinese e-retail?A: How I tell the story of what’s happening is about grocery and how the role of fresh within grocery has changed here. So let me just take a step back — e-commerce in China has gone from nowhere eight years ago to almost certainly being world-leading — I think Korea might be challenging it, but China pretty much is world-leading.It followed the normal course of development, but about four years ago what was different I think is grocery started to take off. That was initially with the business that Walmart subsequently bought and then sold to JD.com called ‘Yihaodian’, which literally means ‘One good shop.’This is where the story gets interesting because grocery has become an immensely strategic category for both JD.com and Alibaba as it drives the frequency. I think e-commerce has gotten to a stage of development now where they are not necessarily looking at grocery as a category to make profitable, but they’re looking at it because they want the customers coming to their online shops very frequently. And as you know, grocery is the most frequent thing you shop. In China, historically people would go to the wet market or the hypermarket four or five times a week. Getting share of the end customer’s wallet is what’s driven them very hard into grocery. JD.com and Alibaba are absolutely neck-and-neck competitors. That gives you the story up until two years ago. Obviously within grocery, the critical category particularly in China is fresh produce, and historically it’s pretty difficult to have fresh produce online. And I mean that in a pure sense, not in an O2O type environment. The Chinese consumer has always been very fussy. I always used to joke that in an offline world you’d have the professional grandmother shopping and she’d take 20 minutes picking up a piece of broccoli, turning it over and deciding if that’s the piece of broccoli she wanted to buy. In a wet market, the dynamic is not far off a farmers’ market somewhere else, although not with a premium.That then became, for want of a better word, the next ‘hurdle’ for Alibaba and JD, which led Alibaba to set up this shop called Hema, which literally means ‘Hippopotamus’. They set this up explicitly as an O2O business.Frankly, I think what is fairly good about Hema is they’ve taken fresh — a category which as you rightly identified earlier the Chinese consumer is most paranoid about with food safety issues — and it’s a little bit like you can go into the Amazon warehouse and check out the produce.As a consumer if I’m ordering fresh at home, I want to check out the produce. I go into the Hema store and I can see it, and it’s more wrapped and packaged than it traditionally is in China, which while it’s an ecological disaster kind of gives the consumer reassurance. It’s got things like sell-by dates much more clearly printed on it than you’d certainly find traditionally in other retail formats.Q: What do you find most fascinating in terms of how food is sold through this O2O model and how the space is changing? A: What I find interesting is the merger of foodservice, by which I mean restaurants, and supermarkets here. So the Hema store has lots of fresh products in it and lots of open kitchens around the back of it. From a consumer point of view I can go in and see the veggies, see the seafood — and Hema’s big hero category is seafood —and I can see the kitchen where it’s cooked. You can even see the little bag whizzing around the ceiling on the conveyor belt round the back to take it to my home.If I’m sitting at home, rather than ordering from a local restaurant, I know I can order from Hema and have seen the raw ingredients; I know the kitchen it’s cooked in, and I therefore see the entire value chain where I’m getting it from. At the same time I can order my fruit, my veg and any other packaged items I want. I think fresh is the unlock for it because it’s something that hasn’t been trusted before, but from an Alibaba-Hema point of view, they make the economics work because in fresh produce, the margin in China is in the order of 20 percent or less actually; it’s very low gross margin. But if you’re selling it coming into the kitchen where it’s being cooked, you’re selling it at a gross margin of 60 or 70 percent, so suddenly the basket that’s being delivered has a much higher gross margin.Q: The dynamic reminds me of the wet markets in China, where you’ll have an open market, people are buying fresh food and there will be pop-up restaurant stands next door. I suppose it’s a similar experience, except there is a stronger food safety element and a more modern setting. A: It’s like you’ve put a wet market in a Waitrose kind of environment and you’ve kind of got it.And the thing that I take for granted that I forget from a foreign perspective is end delivery is 30 minutes, which is quite remarkable. So rather than relying on the clunky vans that drive around in Europe, there’s a man on a bike and that delivery is 30 minutes. You’re sitting at home hungry, you want your takeout meal, you order it from Hema and it’s with you very quickly. And it’s free delivery within three kilometres.Q: So it’s basically like Uber Eats but from a supermarket that prepares meals?A: Correct, and then it’s probably worth looking at the other side of the story here. You’ve basically got two ecosystems in China — one being the Alibaba system this all operates in, and the same thing for the JD ecosystem.JD operates something translated as ‘JD to home’, JD Daojia, which is effectively Uber Eats. Whereas Hema is owned by Alibaba, JD does it differently. They are doing O2O delivery for people like Yonghui, which is partly owned by JD, and with Walmart which owns part of JD. So you’ve got this ecosystem developing around JD with big grocers doing O2O delivery with the JD Daojia business. Some of them have started to develop Hema-like stores themselves. Yonghui have started to develop stores called Super Species, which are very much like Hema. Alibaba is also experimenting with other formats, so there’s a mini-Hema, and there’s a much more restaurant-type business they’re developing. They now effectively bought out the Taiwanese side of Sun Art — Sun Art was a JV between Auchan from France and a Taiwanese business. The Taiwanese effectively sold their side of the business to Alibaba, so Sun Art is now effectively a JV between Alibaba and Auchan, and now they’re rolling this out. I’m told they want Sun Art to become a franchisee of the Hema business and roll out Hemas independently.Q: So it’s a real web of interconnected companies and different JVs, some of them domestic, others with foreign players.A: Absolutely. Honestly, there’s no need to scratch the surface of that. There are these two slightly nebulous ecosystems, which also goes into payments and online video and all sorts of other things less related to fresh. You can call them platforms, ecosystems, but they’re both competing so that the customer never leaves that ecosystem.Q: And how loyal are consumers to these different ecosystems? If they’re buying from JD this week, are they buying from Alibaba next week or are they very much fixed to one?A: Honestly, I don’t have any statistics on it. My belief is that most people will shop across the two; it’s not unlike two big supermarkets trying to compete for your service and offer you everything.Q: This gives us some good background. What would you say China is doing that the Western world hasn’t been able to do, and how can Western retailers — whether it be in the UK, continental Europe or the United States — learn from the Chinese example? Or is the Chinese context too different to really learn from?A: I think the situation is different. One angle is from the consumer. The profitability of the product is less important; all they’re worried about is the profitability of the customer, which I don’t think is where Western retailers have got to.They’ve basically said: “We are selling some of this product and some of this produce particularly at very low gross margins because we want to get customer loyalty.”The second thing I think is different is the frequency of speed of delivery, and I think the model of delivery. I think you could replicate that in very high-wage markets, but I think that’s the Uber Eats kind of model.The third aspect I’d highlight again is this merger of fresh and restaurants. Q: Do you think this type of delivery in China has been made possible because of relatively lower labour costs compared to Western countries?A: Again, I haven’t got the numbers in front of me, but an average delivery man is not poorly paid. They do work extremely hard, so more relaxed labour regulations are probably as much of an issue as the cost.Q: That makes sense, especially as where these retailers have thrived has often been in more opulent parts of big cities like Shanghai and Beijing. That brings me to another point — what about the second- and third-tier cities? Is this model expanding inland from the coastline to other urban centres?A: It is. It’s slower — typically everything in China happens three to four years behind what happens in Shanghai. But it’s developing — Hema is now being rolled out into other cities, so I don’t see why that’s going to stop. I think there are some challenges to it — you’ll have to adapt the model and make some of it less premium.Q: So you have the Chinese using their phones for so many aspects of life, more so than in other parts of the world. They are well-accustomed to mobile online payment services, are witnessing levels of GDP growth that not many of us in the West are used to and that is combined with infrastructure development and greater urban density. In your report, you wrote about how 10 percent of the population is buying groceries online, but the speed of change is fast in China. How do you see that percentage growing in the future?A: It’s going to massively increase. I can give you a trivial example that illustrates it — if you go around our office in Shanghai, I’d say 98 percent penetration of purchasing groceries online, and probably a 60-70 percent market share going online. Now that is young, well-paid, time-poor people, but it gives you a sense of how far it can go.Certainly there are some stats around the food in packaged grocery online saying it’s got 40-50 percent share in greater Shanghai – I think those numbers are a bit suspect, but they give you a sense of where it’s going.While you’ve got the two ecosystems pushing these categories and prepared to subsidise delivery as they are at the moment, there’s no obvious end to how far the packaged grocery will go, and I think they will push the fresh alongside it as an O2O product coming out of the stores.Q: These are trends that need to be understood by those who supply fruits and vegetables to the Chinese market, both locally and from overseas. What do you need to have in mind if you’re going to tap into this market and build brand loyalty? That could be to a specific produce brand, a country of origin or even a seasonal product. Should they be aiming to get their produce items in more prepared meals at O2O outlets? Should they be trying to supply fruits and vegetables that can be delivered more easily? Please share your thoughts.A: One thing I would highlight is there is much more transparency. Hema does make a big deal out of having QR codes on all its shelves – you scan the QR code and it gives you the history of the product, the prominence of it, and that comes out of the food safety area, but it’s actually gone much more into tell me about which cow it comes from, which farm and why that farm is super safe and so on, and I think that ability to tell your story is increasing in a way that just hasn’t happened beforeOn the flipside, the buying is going to get more centralised. So the fear, and this isn’t just in produce but across FMCG [fast-moving consumer grocery] as a whole, is that Alibaba starts to buy for its entire ecosystem at some point. Don’t get me wrong, we’re not there yet. I’m kind of painting the future, but I think this is probably one of the last areas they get to. With branded consumer goods, they are starting to move towards centralising their purchasing — it’s not there yet, but it’s coming, and I don’t see any reason that down the line it won’t come for produce, as well.Q: As there’s this greater transparency, increased trust in leading e-retail brands and subsequently increased trust in the products they sell, are we going to see a change in the dynamic whereby the Chinese tend to prefer imported products over local ones?A: It’s a very good question. It’s slightly the million-dollar question. I believe not, and actually if you look at some of the trends you see on the internet in China in food, it’s actually driven quite a lot of import, so the internet has given consumers access to snacks. You see snacks from all sorts of Asian countries booming because the Chinese consumer for the first time has discovered them.You see a lot of Japanese fruit online for example. My belief is you need to have a story to tell, and the import story is a strong one provided there is a story. I think just being a cheap producer from a random country, it won’t be enough. You see a lot of Japanese apples turning up, they are enormous and they are different, so they’re noticed in the market. If there is something unique and special about you, I think it really presents an opportunity. If you’re a commodity producer of apples, I think it’s going to be an increasing problem for you. Q: You’ve covered a lot of what O2O means for the retail space. I’m curious though, are there any other independent O2Os that we need to watch?A: All real O2O operations of scale are occurring around the two ecosystems, and those people who have tried to do it on their own have failed. I won’t mention which company — a big grocery who tried to do it on their own — they just got no volume compared to if you’re working in these ecosystems, because you need the online traffic. If you don’t put the app on within an ecosystem, you just don’t get the online traffic.The history of most things online in China is that there are a lot of good ideas — I think Fruitdaystarted like this, but as you noted before the interview, they then get bought.On the one side, you’ve got Alibaba that’s got plenty of cash flow and will spend it to defend its position, and on the other side you’ve got JD who’s got very patient shareholders [in Tecent], will raise capital and will spend it. So independents tend to have got snaffled into the ecosystems.Q: In your report with Wai-Chan Chan and James Yang, you mentioned developments like unmanned retail and automated shopping carts. What do you think the future holds for those technologies?A: Personally, whereas I sense the O2O formats are not an experiment and are here to stay, I think these ones I still think are very experimental and I think it’s not obvious exactly what’s going to happen there.Q: With all this discussion of online, can you talk about where some of the impetus for O2O began – the tradition of wet markets. What happened to it as this shift played out?A: Some of those have held up surprisingly well. What tended to happen is the movement of food online has taken some of the traffic out of the modern channels of hypermarkets and supermarkets; you used to go to a hypermarket because you wanted to do an integrated shop, and you wanted to buy a bit of fresh and some packaged goods.Now typically you’re buying your packaged goods online, so there’s no reason to go to the hypermarket. And the wet market is typically of better quality and a little bit cheaper in terms of fresh, so what you found is the first step is: “I buy my packaged online, therefore I can’t be bothered going to a hypermarket, and then I’ll go to the wet market where I prefer my fresh produce.”So they’ve been in long-term decline, but that long-term decline has not accelerated.Q: Do you think wet markets still have a future in China?A: You get this bifurcation of good and bad. You’ll find the good ones which are well run will do quite well — over time they’ll smarten up and so on, but the bad ones will go out.Consumers still like them. Go around my office and see the young people — it’s not the case that they go and say, “We can’t buy things from the wet markets.” Actually they like the wet markets. To me the main thing is the strategic role of fresh in the market has changed — it was always the thing that most grocery shops were driven by fresh, and that’s really what Alibaba and JD have latched onto. They’ve decided: “We need to get that in because that’s so strategically important to us.” You might also be interested in Russia bans some Chinese fruit imports … Shoppers will pay the price as U.S.-China trade wa …
