Who is Saina Nehwal? : know about her ..

Saina Nehwal's stature as a top badminton player rose further when she
won the Denmark Open Badminton tournament on October 21 2012, her
sixth premier title overall and second premier title of the year after
the Indonesian Open. She beat a hapless Juliane Schenk of Germany
21-17, 21-8 in 35 minutes to lift the coveted trophy.

Saina has been on a steady rise which was recently celebrated with an
Olympic Bronze medal. She could have grabbed an even better colour but
was defeated by China's Yihan Wang during the course of the London
Olympics. She returned against the world number 1 in the Denmark Open
badminton semi-final and avenged her defeat. This is the spirit which
defines this 22-year-old and her style of play!

Records and laurels have steadily come Saina's way since long. On June
17, she won the Indonesia Open Grand Prix Gold title in Jakarta. This
was her third Indonesia Open title.

Earlier in June, she also became the first Indian to win the Thailand
Open badminton title. She won the Swiss Open Grand Prix Gold in March

Saina, however, was introduced to the sport by her parents, both of
whom were former champions in Haryana. The right-handed shuttler was
born in Dhindar (which is in Haryana's Hisar district) but her
father's work took Saina to Hyderabad where she spent her formative

She was spotted by PSS Nani Prasad Rao, badminton coach of the Sports
Authority of Andhra Pradesh, at the age of 8 and he convinced her
father to allow her to pursue a career in badminton. And Mr Harvir
Singh backed his daughter's dreams.

Saina first caught India's attention in 2006, when she became the
first Indian to win the Philippines Open despite going into the
tournament as the 84th seed. Many top-seeded players lay vanquished in
her wake as she announced her arrival on the international scene.

In 2008, she became the first Indian woman to make it to the
quarterfinal of the Olympics in the singles event. That was the 29th
edition of the Games in Beijing.

She also made it to the World Super Series semi-final in December 2008.

She made history in 2009 when she won the Indonesian Open, becoming
the first Indian to win a Super Series tournament. She repeated that
feat in 2010. She also won a gold medal in the woman's singles event
at the New Delhi Commonwealth Games in 2010, which helped India finish
No. 2 in the medals tally.

She is being currently coached by Indonesian champion Atik Jauhari
while All England Champion Pullela Gopichand is her mentor. She was
previously coached by Dronacharya Award winner S M Arif.


Tech News :Have scientists discovered a diamond bigger than Earth?

Forget the diamond as big as the Ritz. This one's bigger than planet Earth.

Orbiting a star that is visible to the naked eye, astronomers have
discovered a planet twice the size of our own made largely out of

The rocky planet, called '55 Cancri e', orbits a sun-like star in the
constellation of Cancer and is moving so fast that a year there lasts
a mere 18 hours.

Discovered by a US-Franco research team, its radius is twice that of
Earth's and its mass is eight times greater. It is also incredibly
hot, with temperatures on its surface reaching 3,900 degrees
Fahrenheit (2,148 Celsius).

"The surface of this planet is likely covered in graphite and diamond
rather than water and granite," said Nikku Madhusudhan, the Yale
researcher whose findings are due to be published in the journal
Astrophysical Journal Letters.

The study - with Olivier Mousis at the Institut de Recherche en
Astrophysique et Planetologie in Toulose, France - estimates that at
least a third of the planet's mass, the equivalent of about three
Earth masses, could be diamond.

Diamond planets have been spotted before but this is the first time
one has been seen orbiting a sun-like star and studied in such detail.

"This is our first glimpse of a rocky world with a fundamentally
different chemistry from Earth," Madhusudhan said, adding that the
discovery of the carbon-rich planet meant distant rocky planets could
no longer be assumed to have chemical constituents, interiors,
atmospheres, or biologies similar to Earth.

David Spergel, an astronomer at Princeton University, said it was
relatively simple to work out the basic structure and history of a
star once you know its mass and age.

"Planets are much more complex. This 'diamond-rich super-Earth' is
likely just one example of the rich sets of discoveries that await us
as we begin to explore planets around nearby stars."

"Nearby" is a relative concept in astronomy. Any fortune-hunter not
dissuaded by "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz", F Scott Fitzgerald's
jazz age morality tale of thwarted greed, will find Cancri e about 40
light years, or 230 trillion miles, from Park Avenue.

Microsoft Releases TV Advertisement For Windows 8

Microsoft had started accepting pre-orders for the much anticipated
operating system last week. According to the report, Microsoft has set
the price of Windows 8 at $70 (roughly Rs 3,712) for a DVD pack. The
operating system is also available digitally for $40 (around Rs
2,121), where users can download Windows 8 on launch day, October 26.
Along with this, any customer who buys, or already bought, a Windows 7
PC between June 2 and the end of January 2013 will be able to get an
upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $15, a move designed to prevent a
drop-off in PC sales before the launch of Windows 8.
It was recently revealed that Microsoft had released an update to
Windows 8 even before the official launch. Microsoft states on its
official blog that this 'post-RTM' update has been issued to do away
with the usual waiting times users experienced with earlier versions
of Windows as the company went about improving its core code to suit
the various OEMs' newly-developed or enhanced components, drivers and
accompanying software. It states this update ensures we won't have to
wait for a service pack to experience such enhancements. This update
to Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 will be integrated with the
operating system when it is released on October 26.

Additionally, Microsoft is working on updates for its in-built Windows
8 apps. The company will release updates for many of the apps included
with the release to manufacturing (RTM) build of Windows 8, delivered
to manufacturers and to MSDN and TechNet subscribers in August. The
company announced on its official blog that it has started rolling out
updates for the various apps Windows 8 comes with.
These app updates will also be available to manufacturers to include
by default with PCs shipped in the future. Those who have already
installed Windows 8 RTM can get the updates from the Store app. The
Store tile will notify you when updates are available, and you can
open it and click the updates link in the top right corner to see the
list, and install the ones you want.
The Bing app is the first app to get the update. Microsoft will be
rolling out updates for the rest of the in-built apps until October


Intel’s Outlook Fails To Inspire Hopes For PC Recovery

Intel Corp's weak outlook for fourth-quarter revenue and margins
dispelled lingering hopes for a revival in PC demand towards the end
of the year, pushing its shares 2 per cent lower.
Intel, along with rival Advanced Micro Devices, had previously warned
of weak demand for PCs, hit by a troubled global economy and the
growing popularity of tablets like Apple Inc's iPad, once dismissed as
a niche device but now leading a fundamental shift in consumer
Intel's corporate-focused server and data center business has helped
offset weak PC sales in recent quarters, but in the third quarter,
revenue from that division also disappointed as enterprises bought
fewer servers.

"You have to remember, data center has been the rock we've all leaned
on," said Patrick Wang, an analyst at Evercore Partners. "It's a
reflection of enterprises and companies rationalizing their year-end
spend." With economic growth slowing in China and struggling in Europe
and the United States, global PC shipments are expected by analysts to
decline slightly this year, the first annual drop since 2001.
Intel said the data center business, which sells server chips and
other equipment to companies and governments, grew 6 per cent year
over year in the third quarter, although it was down 5 percent from
the prior quarter.
Profitability will also take a hit, as Intel idles excess capacity at
its plants in an effort to reduce inventories of its processors. It
foresees fourth-quarter gross margins of 57 per cent, or 58 per cent
on a non-GAAP basis, both plus or minus a couple of percentage points.
Analysts on average expected gross margins of about 62 percent for the
current quarter.
Chief Financial Officer Stacy Smith said about two-thirds of the
anticipated decline in margins will come from excess capacity charges.
Intel is also running its factories at less than 50 percent of their
capacity, redirecting unused space and equipment to be used on more
cutting-edge production lines still being built.
To inject new life into PCs, Intel has been promoting a new category
of thin, "Ultrabook" laptops with touch screens enabled by Microsoft's
upcoming Windows 8. But the Ultrabooks launched so far have been
criticized as too expensive, and manufacturers have shipped fewer than
"I absolutely expect growth in the PC segment, and I firmly believe
that the level of innovation we're seeing in Ultrabooks is going to be
one of the catalysts," Smith told Reuters in a telephone interview.
"I'm not going to put a number out there -but I expect it to grow."
Shares of Intel fell to $22.35 in after hours trade, after closing up
2.85 per cent at $22.35.
Microsoft as savior?
The world's leading chipmaker is used to being king of the personal
computer market, particularly through its historic "Wintel" alliance
with Microsoft Corp, which led to breathtakingly high profit margins
and an 80 percent market share.
But in the fast-growing and cut-throat mobile world, Intel is
struggling – its market share is less than 1 per cent of smartphones,
trailing Qualcomm Inc, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, ARM Holdings Plc
and others.
That leaves some investors, already concerned about a lackluster
global economy, asking if Intel's invincibility has come to an end,
and whether its profit and revenue growth potential may come back down
to earth.
The PC industry has been banking on Microsoft's launch of Windows 8
later in October to breathe new life into laptops and slow the trend
of consumers buying smartphones and tablets instead of PCs. But there
has been little sign of a significant bump in PC manufacturing or
shipments ahead of the launch, at least in the short-term, analysts
Intel estimated fourth-quarter revenue of $13.6 billion, plus or minus
$500 million. Analysts expected $13.74 billion for the current
In the third quarter, Intel's revenue was $13.5 billion, compared with
$14.2 billion a year earlier. Analysts had expected $13.23 billion in
revenue for the third quarter, according to Thomson Reuters.
