sport news: Standoff ends, Sahara India back as Team India sponsor

Sahara India was Thursday back as cricket Team India sponsor and the owner of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Pune Warriors after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) agreed to most of its demands.

Sahara, sponsors for last 11 years, had decided to sever all its ties with the BCCI earlier this month citing denial of "natural justice". The last straw that split the relationship was BCCI's refusal to allow ailing cricketer Yuvraj Singh's price to be added to Pune Warriors' auction purse after the southpaw was ruled out of the tournament with a lung tumour.

After 12 days of intense negotiations, the two parties issued a joint statement here signed by BCCI president N. Srinivasan and Sahara India managing director Subrata Roy.

"Sahara confirms that it will continue sponsorship of the Indian team. Sahara may want to exercise its right to assign the sponsorship as per the agreement," the statement said.

The BCCI agreed to extend the trading window, which was due to close Friday, until Feb 29 to give Pune Warriors India the opportunity to have successful negotiations with other franchisees as it looks to strengthen its squad.

Indians in foreign banks:Switzerland is not a tax haven: Embassy

Switzerland Thursday dismissed as "uncorroborated" the estimates about the amount of wealth hidden by Indians in foreign banks, days after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) chief said Indian tax evaders had stashed $500 billion in Swiss Banks.

"Switzerland is not a tax haven," a statement from the Swiss embassy said here, denying "unsubstantiated media reports about Switzerland and Swiss banks".

"There have been several speculations about the amount of wealth held by Indians in Swiss banks. Such estimates and statistics lack evidence and are uncorroborated."

The statement also dismissed allegations by Minister of State for Personnel V. Narayanasamy that foreign governments were not cooperating with India in getting vast amounts of black money hidden in overseas banks.

Indian film industry:On 100 years of Indian cinema, wax statue to honour Phalke

 To mark the centenary of the Indian film industry falling May 3, 2012, a fitting tribute will be paid to its legendary founding father, Dhundiraj G. Phalke, famous as Dadasaheb Phalke, an official said here Friday.

A full-size wax statue of Dadasaheb Phalke will be created and installed at the Celebrity Wax Museum (CWM) in Lonavala, according to a trustee of the Dadasaheb Phalke Academy.

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed here late Thursday with CWM's managing director Sunil Kandalloor, commissioning the statue, which will be ready by May 3, the trustee said here.

The occasion was to mark the 68th death anniversary of Dadasaheb Phalke yesterday at the Dadasaheb Phalke Chitranagari, in which a host of Bollywood personalities paid homage to the father of Indian cinema.

Born on April 30, 1870, at Trimbakeshwar, near Nashik, Dadasaheb Phalke made his debut with India's first full-length silent movie "Raja Harishchandra" in 1913.

In a career spanning nearly 25 years, he made 95 movies and 26 short movies, including classics like "Mohini Bhasmasur" (1913), "Satyavan Savitri" (1914), "Lanka Dahan" (1917), "Shri Krishna Janma" (1918) and "Kaliya Mardan" (1919).

However, he became a victim to technological advancements in the art of filmmaking, especially with the introduction and advent of sound in movies, known as 'talkies' in those days.

Unable to cope with the severe competition posed by 'talkies,' Dadasaheb Phalke found few takers for his films, compelling him to make his last silent movie "Setubandhan" (1932) and releasing it with dubbed voices.

Later, in 1937, he attempted his last movie, "Gangavatara" before giving up and retiring to his home district. He died there Feb 16, 1944.

Acknowledging his immense contribution to the growth and development of the Indian film industry and cinema in general, the government instituted the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1969.

Each year, the prestigious award is conferred on a most outstanding film personality who has dedicated his or her lifetime to cinema.

Some of the awardees include Devika Rani Chaudhuri-Roerich (1969), Prithviraj Kapoor, Naushad Ali, Sohrab Modi, Durga Khote, V. Shantaram, Raj Kapoor, Ashok Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Bhupen Hazarika, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Dilip Kumar, Raj Kumar, Sivaji Ganesan, Pradeep, B.R. Chopra, Yash Chopra, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Asha Bhosle, Dev Anand, Mrinal Sen, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Shyam Benegal, Manna Dey and D. Rama Naidu.

Present to pay homage to him on his 68th death anniversary Thursday were filmmakers Anil Sharma, Gautam Bhatiya, Gopal Ram, Romy Behl, veteran actor Chandrashekhar, singer Udit Narayan and trustees Ramgopal Gupta, Neena Jalan and Prabhat Pandey.

World News:China to build museum to preserve Quran copy

China to build museum to preserve Quran copy



A county in northwest China will spend four million yuan (around $635,000) to build a museum for the preservation of a 1,000-year-old copy of the Quran.

Officials from Dongxiang county in Gansu province said the money will be used to build an 800-square-metre museum with exhibition halls and digital display systems.

The ancient copy of the Quran, written in Arabic and comprising 536 pages, was discovered in Dongxiang in 2009, Xinhua reported.

Experts from China, Britain and Japan have analysed the document and said it was likely created between the 9th and 11th centuries.

The museum will use advanced methods to preserve the ancient holy book and slow down its deterioration.

Construction on the museum is scheduled to start in April and will finish by the end of the year.

"The copy has been classified as a cultural property under national protection and is likely to be one of the earliest copies of the Quran in existence," said Imam Ma Qingfang, a local religious leader.

Ma said he has refused outside offers for the document, believing it to be priceless and referring to it as the "book of soul" for the people of Dongxiang.

"The document is of great significance for the study of the history of Dongxiang's ethnic groups, the history of Islam in China and Chinese civilization," said Chen Hailong, deputy head of the county administration.

Current News:Narendra Modi to decorate 170 cops with medals


For the first time since 2003, Gujarat police personnel  honoured with service medals in an official award-giving ceremony. Chief Minister Narendra Modi  presented the medals to over 170 cops and 40 home guard officials of the state on February 15 at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar.

Highly-placed sources in the state home department said, "These awards have been announced by the President and the Governor as appreciation of police personnel' services to society. It includes officials from the rank of police constable to the additional director-general of police. Every year awards are declared at the time of Independence Day and Republic Day. Now, there are no standard operating procedures for awarding the medals by any particular dignitary."
Sources in Police Bhavan told DNA that so far no such event has ever taken place where cops have been given the President's medal for their services. They said the awardees had to collect the medals from New Delhi after their announcement. "No awards were ever given in such a programme by anyone for the last decade," the sources said.

British Academy Film Awards: The Artist named Best Picture at the British Academy Film Awards

Silent movie The Artist had a night to shout about Sunday, winning seven prizes including Best Picture at the British Academy Film Awards.

Britain's equivalent of the Oscars rewarded the French homage to old Hollywood over a homegrown favorite, espionage thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

The Artist, a black-and-white picture that has charmed audiences around the world since its Cannes debut in May, was named best film, and its rubber-limbed star Jean Dujardin took the male acting prize. Its filmmaker, Michel Hazanavicius, won prizes for directing and his original screenplay.

Dujardin said it was "incroyable" -- incredible -- to win a prize in the homeland of acting titan Laurence Olivier, William Webb Ellis -- the inventor of rugby -- "and Benny Hill."

Hazanavicius thanked presenter Brad Pitt for pronouncing his name correctly -- and academy voters for recognizing that his silent film even had a screenplay.

"So many people thought there was no script because there was no dialogue," he said.

Another homage to early cinema, Martin Scorsese's Parisian fantasy Hugo, took prizes for sound and production design.

John le Carre adaptation Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy went into the ceremony with 11 nominations compared to 12 for The Artist, but won just two prizes, for British film and for adapted screenplay.

Writer Peter Straughan dedicated the screenplay award to his wife and co-writer Bridget O'Connor, who died of cancer before the film was completed.

"She wrote all the good bits and I made this coffee," Straughan said. "So, Bridget -- I love you, I miss you. This is for you."

The British prizes, known as BAFTAs, are considered a strong indicator of likely success at Hollywood's Academy Awards, to be held on February 26.

The trophies give more momentum to The Artist, which has already won three Golden Globes, and has 10 Oscar nominations.

Dujardin, who plays a silent screen icon eclipsed by the talkies, said the appeal of The Artist lay in its accessibility.

"It's a simple story," he said. "It's a love story. It's universal. And there's a cute dog" -- Jack Russell terrier Uggie, who almost steals the film from his two-legged co-stars.

The Artist also won prizes for cinematography, costume design and for Ludovic Bource's sprightly musical score.

As predicted, Meryl Streep was named best actress for her depiction of Margaret Thatcher, Britain's first female prime minister, in The Iron Lady. The film also won a well-deserved prize for hair and makeup.

"The ambition of this film was to look at the life of the Iron Lady from the inside out, and to locate something real -- maybe hidden but truthful -- in the life of someone we've all decided we know everything about already," Streep said.

The supporting actor prize went to Christopher Plummer, as an academic who makes a new start late in life in Beginners. Octavia Spencer was named best supporting actress for her turn as a fiery maid in Deep South drama The Help. Spencer said The Help had been called "an American movie about American problems and American history."

"I am so grateful to you for seeing past that," she said. "Because surely oppression knows no gender, no sexual orientation, no country."

George Clooney, Pitt, Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Colin Firth and Judi Dench were among the stars who braved the London cold and bouts of sleet to walk the red carpet before a televised ceremony, hosted by comedian, writer and actor Stephen Fry, at the Royal Opera House.

Many of the frocks were in muted or pastel tones, though The Help star Viola Davis, a best-actress nominee, arrived in a pink Valentino "eco gown" made from recycled plastic bottles.

Presenting the award for special effects, Cuba Gooding Jr. paid tribute to singer Whitney Houston, who was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel on Saturday.

"Whitney, I will always love you," he said -- a reference to one of her best-known songs.

The effects prize went to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2, the final film in the magical franchise and the top-grossing British movie of the year.

Actor-turned-director Paddy Considine and producer Diarmid Scrimshaw took the best British debut prize for the wrenching domestic drama Tyrannosaur.

Kidulthood actor Adam Deacon won the rising star prize, the only category selected by public vote.

Senna, a portrait of the short, sensational life of race car driver Ayrton Senna, was named best documentary and also won the editing prize.

Current News :Chinese city seizes Apple iPads in name dispute!

Authorities have seized Apple iPads from retailers in a city in northern China due to a dispute with a domestic company that says it owns the iPad name, an official said Monday. The Chinese company said it is asking for similar action in more than 20 other cities.

The dispute with Shenzhen Proview Technology threatens to complicate Apple's efforts to sell its popular tablet computer in China, its fastest-growing market. (Read 10 facts about Apple's iPad battle in China)

Investigators started seizing iPads on Thursday in Shijiazhuang, southwest of Beijing, after receiving letters from Shenzhen Proview, said an official of the economic investigation unit of the city's Xinhua district. He would give only his surname, Wang.

"All the Apple iPads in the big shopping malls and supermarkets have been taken off shelves in Xinhua district," said Wang. He wouldn't say how many devices had been seized or the number of retailers affected.

An Apple Inc. spokeswoman in Beijing, Carolyn Wu, declined to comment.

Cupertino, California-based Apple has five stores in mainland China - two in Beijing and three in Shanghai - and authorized resellers in other cities. Phone calls to the Beijing and Shanghai commercial bureaus, which enforce trademarks, were not answered.

Shenzhen Proview registered the iPad name in China in 2001. Apple bought rights to the name from a Taiwan affiliate, Proview Taipei, that registered it in various countries as early as 2000. The mainland company says it still owns the name in China.

Sport news :Kolkata Knight Riders unveil new look, new logo

The Kolkata Knight riders got a makeover of sorts in Mumbai on Monday as their new logo was launched. The new look of the logo was unveiled by the owners of KKR, Shah Rukh, Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta along with the CEO of KKR Venky Mysore.

The Kolkata-based team also has a new tagline - 'New Dawn New Knights'. Shah Rukh, who was at his wittiest best, said: "They said that the new tagline is New Dawn and New Knights, so I thought they were planning to promote my movie again."

Discussing the changes in the design and logo, team owner Shah Rukh said, "The golden color was because I like gold and the black has been changed because I was told that it was not lucky. And last year since we couldn't make it to the last four I can't even argue with it."

However, taking forward the discussion Shah Rukh said Juhi wanted the clothes to be in pink. "Juhi's suggestion was to make our clothes into pink and that suggestion may follow if you don't win the finals this year. And you can imagine Yusuf Pathan in pink dress," the 46-year-old said.

SRK also had a trick or two up his sleeve which got the better of co-owner Juhi Chawla.

"They told me that the conference was going to start at 5 and I was like there's no way that SRK is going to be on time. So that's why I came late and then I heard that he was here at 4:30," Juhi said. To this SRK replied: "It's a new dawn, it's a new knight, it's a new Khan."

News About Apple :Apple asks outside group to audit working conditions at its factories

Responding to a growing outcry over conditions at its overseas factories, Apple said Monday that an outside organization had begun to audit working conditions at the plants where the bulk of iPhones, iPads and other Apple products are built, and that the group would make its finding public.

For years, Apple has resisted calls for independent scrutiny of the suppliers that make its electronics. But for the first time it has begun publicly divulging information that it once considered secret, after criticism that included coordinated protests last week at Apple stores around the world and investigative news reports about punishing conditions inside some factories.

Last month, Apple released the names of 156 of its suppliers. Two weeks later, Apple's chief executive sent an e-mail to the company's 65,000 employees defending Apple's manufacturing record while also pledging to go "deeper into the supply chain." And now, the company has asked an outside group - a nonprofit financed partly by participating companies like Apple - to publicly identify specific factories where abuses are discovered.

India vs Sri Lanka: Tale of a ball not bowled and India draw Sri Lanka off the final delivery

India's ODI match against Sri Lanka ended in a unique draw on Tuesday. This is the first time in a tied ODI match that both teams have scored same number of runs, lost same number of wickets and faced same number of overs. A look at some other statistics from the match.




India vs Sri Lanka: Tale of a ball not bowled

When Lasith Malinga bowled the 30th over of the day, not many realised he had bowled just five balls to Gautam Gambhir and MS Dhoni. The match went on to end in a draw and only then was the worth of that 'un-bowled' delivery was felt most.

Current Affairs:India successfully test-fires missile interceptor............!

India Friday successfully tested a ballistic missile interceptor from a defence base in Odisha as part of its efforts to create a shield against incoming enemy missiles, a senior defence official said.

The indigenous Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile was fired from Wheeler Island off the coast near Dhamra in Bhadrak district, about 170 km from here.

It successfully destroyed an incoming ballistic missile — a modified variant of the Prithvi fired from the Integrated Test Range at Chandipur-on-sea in Balasore district, about 70 km from Wheeler Island.

"The interceptor directly hit the target and destroyed it," S.P. Dash, director of the test range, told IANS. The interceptor was fired a few minutes after the target missile was fired. The target was destroyed at an altitude of 15 km.

Bill By Central Govt:National Food Security Bill, a historic initiative by central government

National Food Security Bill, a historic initiative by central
government Puducherry, February 11, 2012 Union Minister of State for
Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution, Prof. K.V. Thomas, has
said that the National Food Security Bill is a historic initiative by
the government of India and marks a paradigm shift in food security -
from welfare to a rights-based approach. This Bill is perhaps the only
legislation of its kind in the world, says the Minister.

Prof. K.V. Thomas was addressing the All-India Editors' Conference on
Social Sector Issues (ECSSI) in Puducherry today. According to Food
Minister, the NFSB seeks to address the issue of food security in a
comprehensive manner by adopting a life cycle approach. Prof. Thomas
clarified that the additional financial implication of the NFSB is not
going to be large. With the current coverage and entitlement and also
taking into account estimated allocations under other welfare schemes,
the food subsidy for 2012-13 is expected to be about Rs. 88997 crore.
However, if we were to just update the coverage under TPDS (Targetted
Public Distribution System) using 2011 census, the subsidy will be Rs.
109795 crore. In comparison, the estimated subsidy requirement under
NFSB is estimated to be Rs. 1,12,205 crore, i.e., an additional amount
of Rs. 2410 crore.

Prof. Thomas said that the perception of some states about the
coverage under TPDS provide in the bill being restrictive and which
will come in the way of universal PDS for a much higher coverage being
implemented by them is misplaced. The Bill only specifies the minimum
entitlement under TPDS and places obligations on central and state
governments to fulfill them once the Act comes into force. He said
that the apprehensions in some States about their food grain
allocations under NFSB getting reduced is premature. The issue of
state-wise coverage, corresponding the all-India coverage specified in
the Bill, is yet to be decided.

Ministry of Rural Development and Planning Commission will consult the
states to arrive at a consensus on the methodology that will seek to
ensure that no poor or deprived household is excluded from coverage
under different government programmes and schemes. The Minister
clarified that the major impact of NFSB will be in terms of food
subsidy which is estimated to be additional Rs. 23228 crore more in
2012-13,compared to the estimated requirement under existing TPDS and
other welfare schemes.

On computerization of TPDS, Prof. Thomas said steps have been
initiated for the computerization of the PDS in the country. States
have been asked for the digitalization of ration card, computerized
allocation of fair price shops to make the PDS more effective.
Computerisation of TPDS has been taken under Mission Mode Project
under national e-governance plan. The Standing Committee on Food &
Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution is to hold consultations with
the stake-holders in various states and modifications will be made in
NFSB based on the consultations by the committee.
