High Stakes

first_imgBreaking the legacy of Mauritius, Singapore topped in the foreign direct investment (FDI) race in India. In 2018-19, FDI flow from Singapore was US$ 16,228 million, as compared to US$ 8,084 million from Mauritius. It was the third time that Singapore edged out Mauritius in FDI race in India. Nevertheless, in 2018-19, the significance of Singapore outnumbering Mauritius in FDI race was that it was on a binge for sparkling growth, in contrast to FDI shrinking from Mauritius. In 2013-14 and 2015-16 when Singapore edged out Mauritius, it accounted for 24.6 per cent and 34.3 per cent share respectively of the total FDI flow in India. In 2018-19, its share went up further high when it accounted for 36 per cent of total FDI flow in the country. Also Read – A staunch allyThis trend pitches a ground that Singapore is assertive to top FDI in the years to come. Mauritius stint at the top place started shredding since 2018-19. It downsized nearly to half of its flow in 2017-18 – from US$ 15,941 million in 2017-18 to US$ 8,084 million in 2018-19. Correspondingly, FDI from Singapore surged by over 33 per cent in 2018-19. The main cause for the downslide was an abrogation of capital gain tax benefit under the new Double Taxation India Mauritius Tax Treaty. Also Read – Cuban pathosWith a tweak in India – Mauritius Double Taxation Avoidance Treaty, which was applicable from 2017-18, Mauritius lost its tax-haven status. Hitherto, India did not have the power to impose a capital gain tax under the India-Mauritius tax agreement in 1983. India signed a Protocol in May 2016 for amendment of the Avoidance of Double Taxation Treaty with Mauritius. Under this, the capital gain tax exemption was agreed to be abrogated after 2018-19. Till then, 50 per cent tax exemption would be provided to the foreign companies, having shell companies in Mauritius and investment in India. Further, this exemption was available if the foreign shell companies spent more than Rs 2,700,000 in one year between April 2017 to March 2019. This creates a new dynamism in FDI structure in India. Against the backdrop of abrogation of tax exemption, which plugged the loopholes of FDI through Mauritius and became a detriment to the big revenue loss to the Government of India exchequer, Singapore emerged a new player in FDI dynamism, outsmarting Japan and European countries. This paradigm shift of foreign investment from Singapore will have multiple impacts because India has a strong economic partnership with Singapore. There are three factors which catalyse India’s strong economic relations with Singapore. First, Singapore is the 5th biggest export destination for India. India has a trade surplus with Singapore. Second, Singapore plays a key role in India’s Look East policy and is the key driver for ASEAN FTA in services. Third, Singapore is the major off-shore financial hub for many Indian companies due to the presence of large Indian diaspora. Over 6,000 Indian companies are registered in Singapore. Singapore has been playing a key role in the FDI boost in India. In the FDI pool, there are three sectors, which are the triggers for FDI. They are the service sector, computer and software, and telecommunications. Together, they account for one-third of total FDI flow in the country. Singapore accounts for the biggest share in these three sectors, paving the way for FDI boost in the country. An analysis of the investment from Singapore revealed that most of the investors were not the original Singaporean companies. They were MNCs and Indian companies, who routed their investment through their Singapore subsidiaries. Glaxo Smith Kline, UK, Telenor South Asia Investment Pte Ltd – a Norway subsidiary in mobile phone, Toto Asia Oceania Pte Ltd – a Japanese subsidiary in sanitary ware, Tokyo Marine Asia Pte Ltd – a Japanese company, Starfish Pte Ltd – a USA subsidiary in software, Alipay Singapore E-Commerce Pte Ltd – a Chinese Alibaba subsidiary in information services, E Bay Singapore Services and Amazon Asia Pacific Resources Pte Ltd – American subsidiaries in E-Commerce and the Indian companies, like Bharti Airtel, Triguna Hospitality Ventures, Flip Kart and Snapdeal having subsidiaries in Singapore were the major investors in India. Why a small country like Singapore emerged the biggest investor in India? What is the main attraction for MNCs to invest through their subsidiaries in Singapore? Singapore is a more safe place for foreign investors to re-route their investment by virtue of substantive bilateral tax treaty between the two countries. India and Singapore entered into a Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA) in 2005. This contains the provision of Limits of Benefits. Under this, a foreign shell company in Singapore can enjoy the capital gain tax exemption, provided its annual expenditure on operations in Singapore is more than Singapore dollar 200,000 in two years and it is listed in the Singapore Stock Exchange. India–Mauritius Tax Treaty did not contain Limit of Benefits clause. In nutshell, Singapore has emerged as an important economic partner of India. Its ascendancy in ASEAN and an important source for financing infrastructure, after launching Asia’s Infrastructure Exchange, Singapore has become an important ally to India’s infrastructure development. In this perspective, even though India is reconsidering to revisit India-Singapore CECA, foreign investment from Singapore investment is unlikely to be dwarfed.

Sikhs say Nordstrom apologized for turban waiting for Gucci

PHOENIX — The top civil rights organization for Sikhs in the United States says Nordstrom has apologized to the community for selling an $800 turban they found offensive, but they are still waiting to hear from the Gucci brand that designed it.Simran Jeet Singh is a senior fellow with the New York-based Sikh Coalition. He says the turban has a deep religious significance for the men of his faith and companies commodify something sacred to them.He recalled Saturday that Sikhs wearing turbans have been attacked in hate crimes, including a man killed in Arizona days after 9-11.Nordstrom said it wasn’t their intent to disrespect “this religious and cultural symbol”In February, Gucci apologized for selling a sweater that evoked blackface for many people.

Atari plans to auction off all its game assets in July

first_imgBack in January Atari US filed for bankruptcy in New York, but hoped to sell off all its games assets in a single sale to pay off debtors. Initially interest was strong with more than 180 buyers coming forward. But as the months went by only 90 signed confidentiality agreements and then only 15 bids were placed, none of which were deemed high enough to make a sale viable.So now Atari is taking a different approach and will instead sell off all of its game assets over the course of a 4 day auction in July. That means instead of buying all Atari products, bidders will be able to secure individual IPs the company owns.It is thought that the series worth the most money comne auction day is Rollercoaster Tycoon, and to secure that you will have to place a minimum bid of $3.5 million. Test Drive will start the bidding at $1.5 million, the Humongous franchise of games requires $500,000, and Total Annihilation just $250,000. In total, the minimum bids for all the assets Atari is set to offer comes to $22.2 million.Although publishers may take an interest in some of the more high profile games, there’s still a chance the auction won’t happen. Atari needs to get it approved by a judge on June 11, after which the auctions are planned for July 16-19. Even then, not everything will be sold as Atari has a number of lesser known games series it wants to sell privately.It’s clear now that the original intention to sell the company as a whole and keep it operating isn’t going to happen. Instead, there’s a chance some of its best known games will get a new lease of life, but under the guidance of a new publisher.last_img read more

Its only getting worse Up to 80 beggars on Dublins city streets

first_img Short URL Share Tweet Email THERE IS A cohort of around 80 men and women begging in Dublin city centre, a new report has revealed.According to the research, conducted by the Ana Liffey Project and presented to the Joint Policing Committee yesterday, there are many people who are sympathetic to those on the streets but there is a feeling that not enough is being done to fix the root causes of the problem.Most respondents wanted to differentiate between aggressive, sporadic begging and non-aggressive, organised profiteering.Of the 270 people surveyed, more than 85% think that the begging problem is getting worse while just 3% thought it had remained the same. The rest of the respondents were unsure.The study found that of the 80 regular beggars, there are about 10 to 15 at any one time who beg short-term for a specific reason or amount of money. This could be to pay for fares or a fine or to fill a prescription for medicine. Those begging on a regular basis often ask for money to put towards a hostel bed, a B&B, their rent, for drugs or for alcohol.While it is a criminal offence to aggressively beg for money, it is not illegal to request money from someone on the street.Some of those surveyed queried if organised begging was in operation in Dublin while other respondents mentioned feeling intimidated.A recurring theme was the extent of places where people are begging, including all over the city centre and further out – not just on the main streets but laneways, side streets, outside many public buildings including churches, train stations and car park paying machines. Homelessness and addiction are the main reasons people are begging. Both interviewees and survey respondents are concerned that people have to beg and want something done which tackles the root causes and not just the symptoms.“Direct action is being taken by people who go out on the streets with friends/neighbours to feed and bring shelter to those on the streets. There is also a view that some begging is organised and is an effective means to make an income. Regardless, begging is viewed as a social issue, it is not a criminal matter and should be addressed accordingly.”The beggar on the street asking people to help them get food and the organised criminal gangs profiting from on-street harassment need to be tackled, according to the Chair of the Joint Policing Committee at Dublin City Council.Cllr Daithí De Róiste said there needs to be a “two-strand approach” to dealing with beggars in Dublin.“Those begging for money or food and those looking to profit from the kindness of strangers are two very different things and need to be treated as such.Gardaí need to clamp down on organised professional beggars that are being run by east European gangs and are involved in aggressive begging at ATMs or outside pubs.“Then there is the beggar who is on the street due to social circumstances such as homelessness, alcohol or drug addiction. These are people who need our help and the last thing they need is to be punished for trying to survive. One law doesn’t cover everything. This is not a black and white issue.” A shoeless beggar on Liffey Street in Dublin on a near freezing December evening. Source: Mark Stedman/Photocall IrelandTony Duffin, CEO of the Ana Liffey, said: “The report found that people are generally sympathetic to people who beg. A visible police presence on the streets is important for a feeling of safety, but begging is not perceived as a problem which can be solved by policing.”He said that people do not see all begging as equal and that a line is drawn between aggressive and non-aggressive begging. He added that there is also a difference between begging during the daytime and nighttime.“Importantly, people do empathise with the situations of many people who beg. The situation in Dublin with regards to begging can be improved – broadly, by addressing the underlying causes of begging for individuals who beg; and continuing to police the issue of aggressive begging.”Read: Murder accused said he fell asleep in front of TV after beating woman to death with hammer >Read: Ibrahim Halawa’s family say he is now ‘dying’ in prison > By Garreth MacNamee Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Image: Sasko Lazarov/Photocall Ireland A young man begs on the Ha’penny Bridge in Dublin.

MovieBob Reviews LA LA LAND

first_imgStay on target MovieBob Reviews: ‘Shadow’MovieBob Reviews: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Oh hey, look! An agreeable, well-meaning, perfectly adequate, decent but also lightweight and mostly forgettable movie being wildly overpraised presumably because it’s a pleasant distraction grounded in cinephile nostalgia and romanticism of Old Hollywood. Oscar Season comes earlier every year…Let me preface this by saying: The moment I originally got done watching La La Land I was over the moon about it – in large part because it finishes really strong. Whatever else you take away from me or anyone else about this movie, let it be said that it has an absolutely killer, elevating, devastating, knock-out home run of an ending. Bold, imaginative, clever… it feels like the kind of ending you’d make a whole preceding movie to justify – and I wouldn’t dream of giving it away. It’s as strong and transporting a moment as any sequence in any other film released this year; and since it only truly works in the context of payoff for the story that led up to it, it’s honestly worth seeing the film just to get said payoff.So yes. I walked out of that screening high on life and in love with the feeling the film left me in. I won’t deny that. And if I’d run a review right at that moment, it probably would’ve been an outright rave. But instead I’ve had time to think about it, and where I’ve arrived instead is that La La Land… just didn’t really leave me with all that much to think about.Not in the sense that it’s a simple movie – it is, but there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. Simple is fine – often very powerful, as a matter of fact. But while the film is lovingly made, has a big heart that’s consistently in the right place and does eventually manage to actually “go somewhere” thematically; there’s just not much about it that digs in or even just sticks once it’s landed. That kind of lightweight fluffiness is absolutely intentional and clearly not the result of lack of commitment, but it’s ultimately so lightweight that no amount of commitment can really make most of it linger in the mind for very long. The most telling illustration of this? It’s a musical… but I couldn’t hum more than three notes of one song or repeat more than a handful of lyrics if you put a gun to my head.The central gimmick, at least, is clever enough: It’s an old-fashioned “making it big in showbiz” musical right out of the Golden Age but set in the present and applying the retro-gloss of genuine romanticism for Old Hollywood to an ironic romanticism of Los Angeles in 2016; illustrated by a bouncy opening number that imagines a sunny, joyful “spontaneous dance” sequence as breaking out in the middle of… a bumper-to-bumper L.A. freeway traffic jam. In terms of target audience, if you can get aroused by magic hour shots of Randy’s Donuts and Griffith Observatory, La La Land has your number.But whereas classic musicals of this type tended to focus on earnest young go-getters, our designated couple for this modern take turns out to be a pair of starry-eyed hipsters played by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. She’s a studio-lot barista with dreams of Hollywood stardom; he’s an insufferable piano prodigy who wants to lead a revival in old-school Jazz. The sparks fly, and they’ve got chemistry to spare, but their love becomes tangled up in her attempts to stage a one-woman show and his temptations to “sell out” as part of a pop act to support her and… well, to be plain about it: Assuming you’ve seen one other movie about relationships in the entertainment and/or music industries you already know where this is going.To be certain: While it’s playing, out it’s a lot of fun. The leads are well cast; the half-old/half-new aesthetic is handsomely realized and it never quite dips below “watchable.” I’ve seen people compare it to The Artist in that they’re both a case of the movie industry writing love-letters to itself so that the increasingly L.A.-centric film criticism and awards scene will fawn over it, but The Artist was actually kinda crummy. La La Land, at least, is a solid watch and a gorgeous looking movie. Director Damian Chazelle absolutely knows what he’s doing and while the music from Justin Hurwitz just isn’t very memorable and that’s kind of a fatal flaw in a musical… if it had been especially “bad” I might actually have recalled more of it. And like I said: Holy shit, it’s building to a HELL of an ending.Like I also said: I genuinely enjoyed the act of watching this movie and I imagine a lot of people will feel the same way. It’s fun. Immensely likable… but also kind of disposable unless you really like Ryan Gosling modeling strategically out-of-date men’s fashion that much. It’s a good enough movie, and it wouldn’t be fair to hold all the undeserved accolades it’s probably about to pile up against it, but still only just good enough.last_img read more

Citizen panel sets hearing on salaries for Leavitt council

Sixth St.Will the start of 2013 mean a raise for the Vancouver City Council?It’s not up to the city’s elected officials, but rather a citizen Salary Review Commission, which is set to hold its first meeting and public hearing Thursday.The five-person committee examines the mayor and city council salaries every two years to coincide with Vancouver’s biannual budget schedule.City council members have the opportunity to supply testimony to the council and state their case for any salary increases they believe are necessary, or lobby to keep their salaries static, as they did in 2010. The Salary Review Commission, under state law, cannot lower the mayor or city council’s pay.Mayor Tim Leavitt earns $2,200 a month; Mayor Pro Tempore Larry Smith gets $2,000; and the rest of the council is paid $1,781 for their part-time public service positions.Each also may choose to collect an average of $820 a month worth of health and life insurance and retirement benefits. In early 2011, the council voted to pay for the same percentage of health benefits that management and nonunion workers pay, or nothing for a single member to about $155 per month for family coverage.last_img read more

A key step towards such large-scale quantum technologies is the integration of just two individual photon sources within a waveguide circuit, and the demonstration of high-visibility quantum interference between them. Here, we report a silicon-on-insulator device that combines two four-wave mixing sources in an interferometer with a reconfigurable phase shifter. We configured the device to create and manipulate two-colour (non-degenerate) or same-colour (degenerate) path-entangled or path-unentangled photon pairs. We observed up to 100.0 ± 0.4% visibility quantum interference on-chip, and up to 95 ± 4% off-chip. Our device removes the need for external photon sources, provides a path to increasing the complexity of quantum photonic circuits and is a first step towards fully integrated quantum technologies.center_img In the quest to create a truly useful quantum computer, researchers focus on single areas of research that in the end can hopefully be taken together to reach the ultimate goal. In this new effort, the researchers sought a way to allow for observation of quantum interference on a single chip, and report that they have succeeded by creating what some have described as the most complex quantum circuit ever made.To allow for observing quantum interference, scientists have discovered, two virtually identical photons are needed, which means they need to be produced from two identical photon sources—no easy feat, but not impossible as the researchers have proven.The researchers built a chip that is able to accept a laser beam pumped directly into it—that beam is used as the basis for forming photon pairs by means of interaction with a piece of silicon. The quantum light produced was then combined using a beam splitter (which was also integrated into the chip). The path length of the photon beams was controlled by modifying the temperature of the waveguides which allowed for observing two-photon quantum interference. The team reports observations of “up to 100 ± 0.4% visibility quantum interference on-chip up and up to 95 ± 4% off-chip.”The team suggests their apparatus (basically, a quantum system on a chip) makes unnecessary the need for external photon sources creating a path towards a true quantum computer. They also note that what they’ve created has been achieved without resorting to reinventing fabrication methods—their system can use methods very similar, they say, to those for other CMOS devices, making bulk production relatively easy. They also suggest their device could very well pave the way to multiple photon pair sources which if developed to work together could allow for the construction of highly efficient devices.The team next plans to scale up their chip to allow for adding quantum processing tasks. (Phys.org) —A team made up of researchers from several countries has succeeded in creating a chip that allows for observation of the interference between silicon photon-pair sources. In their paper published in Nature Photonics, the team describes the nature of their chip, how it works and ways it might be used.

presidential poll after an opposition party meeting on Thursday AAP saidon Wednesday File image of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal PTI AAP however has not been invited to the meet With a total of 85 MLAs in Delhi and Punjab and four MPs the party has nearly 9000 votes in the electoral college that will elect the president but has largely been left out of the opposition parleys on the issue "We will take a call after the meeting of opposition parties" senior party leader Ashutosh said It would take a stand after taking into account the opposition’s position on the issue He parried a question on whether the party would support NDA nominee Ram Nath Kovind saying that ever since the BJP came to power in May 2014 atrocities against Dalits in the country had increased The party was not consulted by a three-member BJP panel which had talks with opposition parties on a consensus candidate for the presidential poll to be held on 17 July or invited to a Congress-led meeting of opposition parties on the issue last month AAP however is in touch with the Trinamool Congress the Left parties and the JD(U) The Congress’s decision not to invite AAP to the 26 May lunch meeting hosted by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi was widely perceived as a snub to the party that rules Delhi The Congress does not see AAP as an ally which it believes aims at unseating the Congress as the main opposition party at the national level and in several states in the long run In the past Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has often attacked the Congress especially Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra The

which Gov Ugwuanyi also attended He congratulated the governor for being in the saddle as Governor of Enugu State during the celebrations saying that “good things are happening in Enugu State under Governor Ugwuanyi’s regime” “My dear Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi I congratulate you that you are the Governor of Enugu State and this is happening Sometime ago you were at Ngwo to celebrate our Diocesan Centenary Thanksgiving “Today we are in Nkanuland for the same celebration I am glad that good things are happening in Enugu State under Governor Ugwuanyi’s regime” the Archbishop said Gov Ugwuanyi
