Sport News: Sahara India withdraws sponsorship of Team India and Pune Warriors

On the morning of the big bazaar, a little over an hour before the IPL auction for season 5, the Sahara India group has announced its dissociation with all cricket under the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI); this means it has withdrawn its sponsorship of the Indian cricket team and has pulled out its Pune Warriors team from the Indian Premier League.

The immediate trigger for Sahara's emotional pull-out, on the morning of the auction, is that their only marquee player in the Pune Warriors, Yuvraj Singh, is indisposed and the BCCI has turned down Sahara's request that his price be added to their purse today to allow them to replace him for season 5.  A miffed Sahara has requested the BCCI to pass on the Pune Warriors team to any other interested party. Immediately.

Yuvraj Singh, who undergoing treatment abroad for a non-malignant tumour. Sahara said in a long statement, "Yuvraj Singh, who is truly like one of our family members, is, quite unfortunately, passing through a bad phase health wise, undergoing treatment for critical illness, overseas. Out of enthusiasm, he may like to come out on the ground after a few months. But any well-wisher who truly loves him, would never desire that he be allowed to play for the oncoming months. Our duty is to take care of him, so Sahara has decided to pay him his full fee this year with condition as a Guardian that his priority should be health care and he should not play till he has fully recovered."

"We requested the BCCI on the basis of the fact that we have only one Indian marquee player, that we be allowed to add price of Yuvraj Singh in our auction purse, during the 4th February auction because we had later taken Sourav Ganguly at 0.4 million. Again, we have been denied on the basis of the rule book. Yet again, a case of being denied natural justice," they added.

WEB NEWS :Ten big facts about Google's content filtering plans

Google has announced plans to filter content based on requests from each country. We look at the 10 big facts of this story.

1) Google's content filtering measure by having country specific mirrors is limited only to its Blogging platform.

2) Google Search, Orkut and Google Plus remain unaffected by this measure.

3) The announcement comes on the heels of Twitter's announcement that it now has the technology to selectively block tweets by country.

4) The move comes weeks after the Delhi High Court had threatened Google and Facebook with China like bans if they refused to censor offensive content.

5) Google had tried to wash its hands off the situation saying it was just a search engine and could not be held responsible for content posted by others. With this move Google can claim to be doing what's under its control as this measure aims to address content hosted on Google's own blogging platform.

6) Google's silence on offensive websites featuring in its search results is likely to come under scrutiny in the coming days, as a large chunk of web traffic is driven by Google search.

7) Last month Google's Chief Business Officer Nikesh Arora had expressed Google's inability to censor content based on requests from specific countries saying "You are asking not just censor the Web in India, you are asking to censor the entire world wide web. The web has no borders". With this move Google has, infact, facilitated censoring limited to certain geographies, thereby facilitating borders on the web.

8) With Google and Twitter announcing their measures for filtering content, the focus now shifts to Facebook and how it plans to address this area.

9) Minister of State for Information Technology Mr. Sachin Pilot had earlier downplayed Indian government's so called censorship, insisting the government just wanted people to have legal recourse in case they found some content objectionable and the government had no plans of censoring content by its own.

10) Google has already implemented this in India. People visiting blogname.blogspot.com from India will be automatically redirected to blogname.blogspot.in.

Auction for Indian Premier League 2012

The dramatic pullout of Sahara India from the fifth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) as franchisee of Pune Warriors and as the main sponsor of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) overshadowed the players' auction here on Saturday.

In contrast to the excitement and suspense that gripped the second auction also held in this tech hub a year ago, Saturday's 'mini-auction' began on a sour note as the number of franchises reduced to eight from 10 with the cancellation of Kochi Tuskers Kerala over default and walkout by Sahara India hours before international-acclaimed auctioneer Richard Madley wielded the hammer.

As Sahara officials walked out of the auction venue, a damning statement against BCCI from the franchises after the auction got underway at a five-star hotel triggered more questions about the development as it cited several reasons, including denial of natural justice by the world's richest cricketing body.

"The auction began around 11 a.m. on a sombre note and was held in an orderly fashion for about 150 minutes till 1:30 p.m. when 17 of the 49 players were put on bid and bought by the different franchises. The absence of Pune Warriors' and Kochi Tuskers' franchisees was certainly felt," an IPL official told IANS during lunch break.

When the auction resumed at 3 p.m. on a sedate note for the remaining players, it was called off an hour later as only eight more players could be sold and there were no takers for the remaining 95 players.

"The eight franchises have collectively spent $11 million for purchasing 25 players, which leaves out the remaining 119 for trading online from Monday," IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla told reporters after the auction ended.

Though Bollywood superstar and flamboyant owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, Shah Rukh Khan and owner of Mumbai Indians Nita Ambani were the noted personalities present along with Ness Wadia of Kings XI Punjab and Siddharth Mallya of Royal Challengers Bangalore at the 'replacement auction', the zing was missing and the atmosphere was anything but romantic.

The conspicuous absence of Bollywood celebrities and owners of Kings XI and Rajasthan Royals Preeti Zinta and Shilpa Shetty, respectively, from the venue turned the auction damp squib where 144 players, including eight Indians and 136 foreign were up for grabs.

"The rejection rate was higher this time as the franchises were wary of bidding for anyone or everyone. They were choosy and selective due to fund crunch and utility of the player in the slots that were vacant to be filled," the official pointed out.

Of the eight Indians, veteran batsman V.V.S. Laxman and pacer and V.R.V. Singh remained unsold, while Ravindra Jadeja, Vinay Kumar, Parthiv Patel, R.P. Singh, S. Sreesanth and Ramesh Powar were grabbed by the vying franchises.

Gujarat-born Jadeja was the star of the pick as he was grabbed by two-time winner franchise Chennai Super Kings for over $2 million (Rs.10 crore) pipping Deccan Chargers in a tie-breaker.

Pacer Vinay returns to two-time runner-up Royal Challengers of Bangalore, which bid aggressively to buy him for $1 million after dropping him last year.

Deccan Chargers, which lost Kumar to Royal Challengers in the bid, however, managed to get wicket-keeper Patel for $650,000.

Pacer Singh was bought by Mumbai Indians for $600,000 while spinner Pawar was picked by Kings XI Punjab for $160,000.

Among foreign players who were bought include Mahela Jawardene from Sri Lanka by Delhi Daredevils for $1.4 million, Brendon McCullum from New Zealand and Sunil Narine from West Indies by Knight Riders for $900,000 and $700,000, respectively, Muthaiah Muralidharan from Sri Lanka by Royal Challengers for $220,000, Herschelle Gibbs from South Africa by Mumbai Indians for $500,000, and Brad Hodge from Australia by RR for $475,000.

Katrina To Perform Daredevil Stunts In ‘Ek Tha Tiger’


Katrina Kaif is shooting in Havana for Kabir Khan's 'Ek Tha Tiger' and Hollywood action director Conrad Palmisano is making the actress do daring stunts like free-falls.

Katrina, under the protective eye of co-star and friend Salman Khan, is doing what one member of Cuban unit describes as 'the real thing'.

"These are stunts that any macho hero would think twice before daring. Katrina is really pushing the envelope as far as the female machismo is concerned. She is doing free-falls with Salman by her side. We hear Kareena in 'Agent Vinod' and Kangna Ranaut in 'Krrish 2′ would also be attempting the hi-jinks…," said the unit member.

When asked about her daredevil act, Katrina said: "Yeah, it's scary but great fun. I've only done very feminine delicate roles so far. This is a new challenge for me. I guess that's what I'm looking for at this stage of my career."

Palmisano, who has supervised the stunts for over 200 topnotch films and television series, oversaw Sheila LeBeouf's stunts in 'Transformers: Dark Of The Moon', Nicolas Cage in the forthcoming 'Seeking Justice' and Jackie Chan in 'Rush Hour', informed the source from on-location.

Apparently Palmisano initially suggested 'something softer' for Katrina.

The actress is preparing for them every morning.

"She wakes up at the crack of dawn to get warmed up for Palmisano's stunts. Then she gets down to action. Very risky ones, I might add which many of our Bollywood heroes would insist on being done by doubles. Lekin Katrina mein ek junoon hai. She is out to prove she can do action scenes as well…," said the source.


Maruti New Swift Dzire Launched At Rs 4.79 Lakh

Maruti Suzuki India Wednesday rolled out a shorter version of its entry-level sedan DZire at an introductory price between Rs 4.79 lakh and Rs 7.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The new model is available in both petrol and diesel options and it qualifies for the excise duty of 10 percent enjoyed by small cars as it is shorter than 4 metres.

While the petrol version will be powered by a 1.2 litre engine, the diesel one will have a 1.3 litre engine. An automatic transmission variant will also be available in the petrol version.

"The company and its vendors have invested over Rs 230 crore for the new DZire. The new model will be cheaper by Rs 25,000-Rs 30,000 than the older version," Maruti Suzuki India Managing Executive Officer (Marketing and Sales) Mayank Pareek told reporters here.

The company has priced the petrol variants of the new DZire between Rs 4.79 lakh and Rs 6.54 lakh, while the diesel ones will come for Rs 5.80 lakh-Rs 7.09 lakh.

The prices of the existing DZire ranges between Rs 4.94 lakh and Rs 7.29 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The new DZire has at least 150 new features compared to the existing one. The company, however, will continue to produce the old DZire in some specific variants like the base model in stripped down version to target the fleet segment.

The new sedan will be produced at MSI's Manesar plant. It is looking to recover lost ground this year after it was hit by a series of labour unrest at the plant last year.

The current DZire has a waiting period of 3-4 months and MSI is looking to address the issue by gradually ramping up the output.

Since its launch in 2008, MSI has sold over 3.2 lakh units of DZire so far. The existing model did not enjoy the excise benefit on small cars as it is longer than four metres.

As per current government policy, cars below the length of 4 metres and engine capacity of 1,200 cc in petrol and 1,500 cc in diesel qualify as small cars.

Those bigger than the specifications come under the big car category and attract excise duty of 22 percent with an additional fixed duty of Rs 15,000.

Snow Forces Ferrari To Call Off 2012 F1 Car Launch



Ferrari have cancelled the launch of their car for the upcoming Formula One season due to heavy snow around the company's headquarters in Maranello, Italy.

Ferrari would now conduct an online launch of the car with drivers Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso.

"There was no let up from the snow last night which continued to fall on Maranello and the surrounding area, and the situation does not appear to be changing this morning," said Ferrari in a statement.

"The forecast is still bad, both in terms of predictions of more snow fall and of a further drop in temperature.

"Therefore, the decision has been taken to cancel the presentation ceremony for the new car.

"The decision was taken because of the weather conditions and the difficulties that would have faced the 300 or so people due to attend from the team partners, the authorities and representatives of the media in their attempts to get to Maranello," the statement added.

PM: 17 central PSUs to invest Rs.140,000 crore

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh Tuesday said 17 central public sector
undertakings (CPSUs) will invest Rs.140,000 crore in the coming year.

"I am extremely happy to learn that 17 of our largest CPSUs have
committed to investment plans amounting to Rs.140,000 crore in the
coming year," he said, addressing a function here.

"Public investment is particularly needed at a time, when the country
is facing a difficult global environment, and looking to domestic
drivers of growth," the prime minister said, adding that he would
encourage the CPSU to also boost capital investments.

Investment from CPSUs is mainly concentrated in manufacturing, mining,
electricity and services sector.

Manmohan Singh said that the country's mining sector should step up
production of coal, petroleum and natural gas as the cost of importing
these minerals have shot up.

"We must step up our performance in mining, particularly in the
production of coal, petroleum and natural gas," he said.

The prime minister urged CPSUs in the mining sector to explore
opportunities for acquiring foreign mineral assets as recently a
proposal for acquisition of raw material assets abroad had been
approved by the cabinet.

He also emphasised the need to expand the share of manufacturing
sector in the country's gross domestic product (GDP) which currently
stands at 15 percent.

"I would urge the CPSEs (central public sector enterprises) in these
(manufacturing) areas to embark upon ambitious plans of expansion to
make the target of 12 to 14 percent growth in the manufacturing sector
a living reality," he said.

The prime minister also stressed that the CPSEs need to focus on good
corporate governance, strategic planning, innovation, research and
development (R&D) and greater attention to quality control for staying
competitive.

World news :Google Maps seeks to return to China; applies for license

The US-based internet search giant Google has applied for an online
maps license to operate in China, seeking to return to the lucrative
market in the Communist nation after a year-long absence following a
row with Beijing over privacy issues.

China's mapping service regulator said today that Google's
application for an online maps license, which is required for
operating such service in China, is under official examination.

Google, which desisted from applying for the license after China
brought about a new rule making it mandatory for the companies to have
joint venture in 2010, picked up Beijing Guxiang Information
Technology Co. Ltd as its partner in China.

The National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation,
said in a statement that Beijing Guxiang Information Technology Co.
Ltd, a joint-venture of Google, submitted the application in November
last year.

Analysts said Google, which had a head-on confrontation with China
over privacy issues in 2010 and shifted its headquarters to Hong Kong,
is now looking to stage a comeback lured by flourishing Chinese
internet market, which has already crossed the 500-million mark.

Firefox 10 is Now Available !

 Firefox 10 Now Available for Download

Mozilla today made the latest update of its open-source Web browser, Firefox 10, available for download in Windows, Mac, and Linux editions. The update, the latest in the organization's "rapid release" program, improves the way the browser handles add-on updating, and adds a gaggle of new tools and capabilities for Web developers to use, which in turn, means more powerful and compelling sites for end users.

For example, the new browser version allows site creators to run their Web apps in full screen, and offers new 3D graphics capabilities—both of which are well suited to browser-based gaming, among other applications.

One of Firefox's hallmarks has long been its rich extension support, and many of the browser's users list that as the primary reason for choosing Firefox. Version 10 will make the browser and extension upgrades smoother, less interruptive processes for end users. Now, instead of requiring an extension to explicitly be marked by its coder as Firefox 10-compatible, the browser will assume that the extension is compatible if it was programed for any Firefox version back to version 4.
