Architectural highlights of 2015

From the new Philharmonic in Paris to a new business school in Sydney, here are some of the more remarkable feats in architecture from the last 12 months.

Shanghai Tower
The Shanghai Tower in China is the new centrepiece of the city's financial district. Designed by Gensler architects, it is 632m high and has 128 storeys, making it the tallest building in China and the second highest building in the world. Only the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is taller.
Architects at Gensler used three strategies in designing the building: asymmetrical form, tapering profile and rounded corners to make the structure resistant to typhoon winds. Although the project was completed earlier this year, it is not yet open to the public.

Highlights and lowlights of journalism innovation in 2015

It’s almost a wrap for 2015, and what a year it was for the media. Here are my notables, plus my two disappointments.
Much has happened to advance storytelling. One of the most important, in my view, is that we don’t hear the phrase “digital first” as often as we did in 2014.  It is more about “the story first” now.  Concern about platforms has become secondary. The story as protagonist is where it’s at and should continue to be.  Those who populate newsrooms globally are getting the idea: we are in the storytelling business and we now have more platforms than ever to tell those stories. Amen to that, but I hope 2016 will be a year to concentrate on the need for innovative and creative storytelling techniques.
Let’s review the highlights of 2015:
  • Smartphones —If there was a platform that went for a sprint to the finish line in 2015 it has been that smartphone in your hand.  About 64% of American adults now own a smartphone of some kind, and they are getting their news there too.  We are seeing more content specifically aimed at smartphones.  Also notable: 15% of Americans ages 18-29 are heavily dependent on a smartphone for online access. We like what the Norwegian daily, Aftenposten, continues to do in this area, with more innovation in store for 2016. Keep an eye on the smartphone. It is the essential platform of consequence not just for news but also for advertising.

The biggest Android highlights of 2015

What a year it has been. There have been some soaring highs, some very hot moments and some epic Android fails this year. We've seen new phones came out that were brilliant, some that were terrible, and some that were totally unexpected. But right now we want to celebrate the biggest Android highlights of 2015.

Alphabet Inc and CEO Sundar

Earlier this year at Google I/O, when I met Larry Page and Sundar Pichai for the first time, I made jokes with Sundar about how tired he must be considering the heavy workload he was under at Google. He laughed and gave me a look that I would only fully understand a little later.Alphabet CEO Larry Page (left) and Google CEO Sundar Pichai (right). / © Google/ANDROIDPIT

Top 10 industry highlights of 2015

As we step into 2016, ClickZ presents the most important news in digital marketing over the past year, such as Periscope’s debut and Google’s “Mobilegeddon.”
Looking back, 2015 was an exciting time to be in the digital marketing industry, with so many technology advances and product updates, as well as mergers and acquisitions. While we are looking ahead, don’t forget what we have achieved over the last year.
Below, find ClickZ‘s top 10 industry highlights of 2015 (mostly) listed in chronological order.

1. Twitter debuts Periscope

Twitter introduced Periscope on the iPhone in March. The live-streaming app allows brands and agencies to be more interactive with their audience because viewers can comment in real time, or tap their screens to send colorful hearts to the broadcaster. Since Periscope is integrated with Twitter, new users have a ready-made audience.
As more and more brands, such as General Electric and Dunkin’ Donuts, experiment with Periscope in their marketing strategies, many predict that Periscope is going to be the next big thing in social media.

2. “Mobilegeddon” officially arrives

Search marketers had been talking about “Mobilegeddon” since Google decided to consider mobile-friendliness and indexed apps as ranking factors back in February. On April 21, “Mobilegeddon” officially arrived.
Brands of all sizes without mobile-friendly sites were hit hard by this update. Companies were pushed to redesign and optimize their sites for mobile devices, becoming “Google-ready.”

7 MAJOR WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS FROM INDIA IN 2015

Every year, weather extremes make their presence felt in the Indian sub-continent. Unseasonal rains, floods, heat wave, and other major weather events affected various parts of the country in 2015 also.

We decided to list down seven major weather highlights affecting India and neighboring nations. Here’s a look at the seven weather events which impacted the country during this calendar year.

You won't get LPG subsidy if your annual taxable income exceeds Rs 10 lakh

Tax payers with annual income of more than Rs 10 lakh will not get subsidised cooking gas (LPG) from next month as the government today decided to limit supply of under-priced fuel to cut subsidies.

At present, all households are entitled to get 12 cylinders of 14.2-kg each at subsidised rate of Rs 419.26, while the market price is Rs 608.

The government had asked well-off people to voluntarily give up using subsidised LPG and instead buy cooking fuel at market price, Oil Ministry said in a statement.

Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme gets into Guinness Records: PM Modi

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said the government's "Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme" has received a place in the Guinness World Records as the largest direct benefit transfer scheme. 

"It gives me immense pleasure to announce that the Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme has recently found a place in the Guinness Book of World Records and it has been implemented successfully," he said during his monthly radio address 'Mann Ki Baat'. 

As of now, already Rs.40,000 crore has been transferred to the accounts of the beneficiaries through different schemes, the prime minister said. 

"I believe about 35-40 schemes are being integrated with the direct benefit transfer scheme," he said. 

"With the help of Jan Dhan Yojana and Aadhaar card, through the largest direct benefit transfer scheme, the subsidies are directly getting deposited in the bank accounts of the beneficiaries," Modi said. 

"Till November, at least 15 crore LPG users have benefited from 'Pahal' scheme. We used to get a lot of complaints with regard to NREGA wages. In a few places, now the money is getting deposited in the accounts of the beneficiary. We have started direct benefit transfer scheme in providing students' scholarships as well," he added. 

Pahal or Pratyaksha Hastantarit Laabh, formerly the Direct Benefit Transfer Scheme for LPG subsidy, is a scheme for direct transfer of subsidy to consumers for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). 

"The schemes should not be made to look like half-dead in the files. It should reach out to the last person in the country. The schemes are made for the poorest of the poor," Modi added.

Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet wins Nobel Peace Prize for 2015



Announcing the award in Oslo, the Norwegian Nobel Committee said that the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet has been awarded the peace prize for its decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia in the wake of the Jasmine Revolution of 2011.

The Nobel Peace Prize, worth $972,000, will be presented in Oslo on December 10.

"The Quartet was formed in the summer of 2013 when the democratization process was in danger of collapsing as a result of political assassinations and widespread social unrest. It established an alternative, peaceful political process at a time when the country was on the brink of civil war. It was thus instrumental in enabling Tunisia, in the space of a few years, to establish a constitutional system of government guaranteeing fundamental rights for the entire population, irrespective of gender, political conviction or religious belief," the Nobel Committee said in its press release.

Ban ki-Moon pushes for equal rights for the LGBT community.. something India has been struggling to do so.



UNITED NATIONS: Speaking at the High Level LGBT Core Group Event, the secretary general of the UN Ban ki-Moon pushed for equal rights for the community and urged government to end discrimination - something India has been struggling to do so.

Echoing the motto of the sustainable development goal 'Leaving No One Behind', Ban ki-Moon said this guiding vision could be reached only if everyone regardless of their sexual orientation or gender entity is reached out to. "In too many countries, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people are among the poorest, most marginalized members of society," he said. Activists would agree that India is one of these countries. "Studies show that gay and lesbian people suffer disproportionate discrimination and abuse. They are rejected by their families... kicked out of their homes ... and pushed out of school. Too many of our LGBT brothers and sisters are jobless, homeless and struggling to survive," he added.

The situation of transgender people is even worse overall, Ban ki-Moon said. "They have higher rates of homelessness, poverty and hunger. For individuals and their families, this is a personal tragedy. And for society, it is a shameful waste of human talent, ingenuity and economic potential," he added.

While India did not mention anything about LGBT rights at the UN, the situation in the country is dire. Homosexual relationships are considered criminal even after the Delhi high court decriminalized. The Supreme Court overturned the order and made it a crime again for people to have consensual relationships with the same gender. India is, however, one of the very country that legally recognizes transgender as a separate gender identity. However, the social stigma attached is strong and they face discrimination at every level of life.

Urging governments to change their stance and be more proactive in protecting their rights, Ban ki-Moon said: "the human rights of LGBT people are abused, all of us are diminished. Every human life is precious - none is worth more than another".

The president of Zimbabwe Robert Mugabe created a furore when exclaimed "Zimbabwe is not gay!" at the UN General Assembly on Monday. "We equally reject attempts to prescribe new rights that are contrary to our norms, values, traditions and beliefs. We are not gays. Cooperation and respect for each other will advance the cause of human rights worldwide. Confrontation, vilification and double standards will not," he said at the general assembly.

Humanity in right direction: Someone's invented a selfie spoon


Selfie spoons are free to order now on SelfieSpoon.com, though customers do have to pay for shipping.

They were so caught up with wondering if they could, they never thought whether they should. Someone at Cinnamon Toast Crunch has invented a selfie spoon to help you click selfies while eating breakfast. Why? We are still trying to figure that part out.
Introduced by the cereal company, the "selfie spoon" is a stick with a spoon at the end that extends up to 30 inches so cereal eaters can take photos of themselves while eating cereal, TIME reported.

http://i.imgur.com/Z1byz7n.jpg

The General Mills brand created this new spin on the selfie stick to solve the first world problem of "choosing between eating and posting" a selfie, according to their ad.
To use the selfie spoon, people would just have to turn on the Bluetooth feature on their smartphones so the white remote will be recognized -- there is one grey button that takes photos on Android phones, and one that takes photos on iOS devices.

2015 Mahindra TUV300 road test review (India)

I’ve reached the Vashi toll booth, long queues, irritated and impatient commuters honking, the truck smoke hangs heavy in the air. From the corner of my eye I can see a silver Duster precariously darting in and out of the snaking queues, honking madly, flashing lights wildly and generally making a nuisance of himself. I spot a flag of India stickered onto his bumper and another dangling on his dashboard that looks a bit sarkari, and I can only surmise he’s with some government office trying to bulldoze his way through. I look away as the queue ahead of me crawls forward and then I notice the Duster has crept up to me. The rear passenger window is rolled down and I notice a burly moustachioed man, shiny Ray Bans, white shirt unbuttoned to his navel and gold jewellery everywhere grinning like a school boy.

How these woman journalists in rural Uttar Pradesh are inspiring change



A rural newspaper that had humble beginnings, has emerged as a force that even mainstream media can learn from.

On Monday, news about a person harassing and stalking a team of women journalists in rural Uttar Pradesh created social media outrage, after a first-person account about the apathy they faced from the UP police went viral. It forced the police to get cracking on the case after months of inaction and the stalker was finally nabbed


The case also brought to light the local language newspaper called Khabar Lahariya run by these resilient women who are not new to standing up to challenges. In fact, it is this very spirit that gave rise to the weekly newspaper.

Khabar Lahariya is a chain of local language newspapers in Uttar Pradesh, produced by a collective of women journalists. The newspaper had humble beginnings with six reporters and around 1000 copies. Today, the team has 40 women recruits and boasts of a readership of 80,000 per week, spread across 800 villages of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, with editions in Bundeli, Bhojpuri, Awadhi, Hindustani and Bajjika. Not only does the paper have formidable reach for a newspaper in the rural hinterland, but for almost a year now, it also has an online presence through its news website and social media pages. 

Was Netaji alive till 1964?



The one file that could have contained definitive evidence on Netaji after 1945 has been destroyed.

KOLKATA/LUCKNOW: The secret files on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose that will be declassified in Kolkata on Friday may contain enough circumstantial evidence that he was alive till at least 1964, say sources.

An American intelligence report prepared in the early 1960s suggests that Netaji could have returned to India sometime in February 1964 — 19 years after it was claimed that he died in an air crash in Taihoku, Taiwan. Though Russia is not mentioned, Netaji researchers believe American intelligence units had learned about his imminent return from Russia via China. He would have been 67 years old at the time.

How to Transport Oil More Safely

In the early days of the petroleum industry, transporting oil meant horse-drawn wagons carrying leaky wooden barrels over bumpy dirt roads—and lots of accidents.

Things have changed a lot since then. But the accidents haven’t gone away. In some ways, they’ve gotten worse.

The boom in domestic production in recent years has brought an ugly side effect: mishaps when transporting the fuel to refineries. These accidents have led to fatalities—one train crash in Canada in 2013 killed 47 people—as well as vast environmental damage, such as the pipeline burst in California this May that spilled as much as 143,000 gallons of crude into the Pacific Ocean and onto pristine beaches.
The growing sense of potential danger has prompted critics and industry officials to ask: What is the safest way to transport oil? And are there ways to make the current methods safer? Among other things, they’re proposing tougher safety regulations, and using technological fixes like machines that travel along pipelines, looking for weak spots.

One thing is certain: None of the existing methods of transport—rail, boats, trucks and pipelines—is going away. The oil industry believes the best thing to do, in terms of safety, profits and efficiency, is to keep all options on the table and make sure they are as safe as possible. “All four modes have always and will always be with us,” says Kenneth Green, who has spent years researching crude-oil transportation safety for the Canada-based Fraser Institute. “What institutions must ensure is that the most oil moves by the safest way, with the caveat of ensuring we protect the health of humans and the environment.”

Here’s a look at the four methods, and what’s being done to shore them up.

Pressure to be ‘cool’ and look good harmful to kids



The pressure to be ‘cool’, look good and own the ‘right stuff’ is detrimental to many children and teenagers, scientists, including one of Indian-origin, have warned.

The study by the University of Sussex psychologists shows that while many young people buy into consumer culture believing it will make them feel better about themselves and help them to make friends, often the reverse happens.

The result is a negative downward spiral, said the researchers, whereby those with low well-being turn to consumerist values, which impacts further still upon their state of mind.

Chhattisgarh bans meat sale during Jain and Ganesh festivals


RAIPUR: Notwithstanding the widespread criticism over Maharashtra government's decision, which has been implemented by Rajasthan also, to ban sale of meat during 'Paryushan' festival of the Jain community, the Chhattisgarh government on Thursday not only decided to follow suit but extended the duration to eight days in order to include the Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. 

According to a government spokesperson, all the slaughterhouses and meat shops would remain closed from September 10 to 17 for the Jain 'Paryushan' Parv and Ganesh Chaturthi. Incidentally, the Chhattisgarh government has been imposing ban on sale of meat during 'Paryushan' since 2011. 

The order, issued on Friday, stated that action would be taken against those found violating the ban. Officials said directions have been issued to health and police officers to ensure implementation of the ban.

भारत में 32 साल बाद विश्व हिन्दी सम्मेलन, नरेंद्र मोदी करेंगे उद्घाटन

भोपाल : दुनिया भर में हिन्दी के प्रचार-प्रसार के लिए होने वाला विश्व हिन्दी सम्मेलन 32 साल बाद भारत में हो रहा है. गुरुवार को देश की सांस्कृतिक नगरी भोपाल में प्रधानमंत्री नरेन्द्र मोदी इस तीन दिवसीय सम्मेलन का उद्घाटन करेंगे. सम्मेलन में लगभग 27 देशों के हिन्दी विद्वान हिस्सा ले रहे हैं. देश विदेश में हिन्दी के प्रचार प्रसार में अहम भूमिका निभाने वाले बालीवुड के सितारों से आम तौर पर परहेज करने वाले विश्व हिन्दी सम्मेलन में इस बार मशहूर अभिनेता अमिताभ बच्चन को न सिर्फ आमंत्रित किया गया है बल्कि वह ‘अच्छी हिन्दी कैसे बोलें' विषय पर व्याख्यान भी देंगे.

प्रधानमंत्री ने सम्मेलन के सफल होने की कामना करते हुए अपने शुभकामना संदेश में आशा प्रकट की कि इसमें भाग ले रहे विद्वान हिंदी के माध्यम से भारतीय संस्कृति के मूलमंत्र ‘वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम' की भावना को आगे बढाएंगे और हिंदी जगत के विस्तार की संभावनाओं को चरम पर पहुंचाने के उपायों पर चर्चा करेंगे.
