MIC chief to be business envoy

November 30th, 2010 by James

MIC chief to be business envoyS. Samy Vellu, the President of Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC), has announced his decision to step down by the end of this November. Vellu will be taking up his new assignment as the business envoy for five countries – India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Maldives.

The Star said Vellu is to be given a farewell dinner Dec 14, which is expected to be attended by the prime minister.

From in.news.yahoo.com:

Vellu will bid farewell to his party colleagues when he chairs the last meeting of the supreme council, ending a 31-year tenure as head of the country’s largest Indian-based party.

His deputy Senator G. Palanivel will take over from him as the MIC chief, Vellu told Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak last week-end, New Straits Times said Monday.

‘Samy Vellu told us that Senator Datuk G. Palanivel who would be taking over as MIC acting president would represent the party in future BN (Barisan Nasional) supreme council meetings,’ the newspaper said quoting an unnamed source.

The Star reported Monday Samy Vellu is expected to start his new job as special envoy for infrastructure for India and neighbouring countries on Dec 1. The job comes with ministerial status and perks.

Multi-racial Malaysia is home to 2.1 million ethnic Indians, a bulk of them Tamils settled during the British era. They have traditionally voted for the MIC.

MIC is part of the ruling alliance, Barisan Nasional (BN) of which Najib is the chief.

Vellu had taken over the helm of the party as acting president on Sep 13, 1979 after the death of Tan Sri V. Manickavasagam

Housing investors of LIC lose Rs 2,300 crore in market sell-off

November 25th, 2010 by James

Housing investors of LIC lose Rs 2,300 crore in market sell-offThe market value of LIC Housing Finance plunged to Rs 2,365 crore to Rs 10,159 crore in a day that created panic among the investors.

The shares of LIC Housing tanked by as much as 18.25 percent to Rs 1,068.55, in its biggest single-day on the stock markets in recent times.

From in.news.yahoo.com:

Money Matters which was also linked with the bribe-for-loan racket also plunged by 20 per cent to Rs 531.20. The market value of Money Matters fell by Rs 470 crore to Rs 1,861 crore. Other banking shares were also battered. Central Bank of India crashed by 8.02 per cent to Rs 197.90, PNB by 3.10 per cent to Rs 1,264.45 and Bank of India by 5.88 per cent to Rs 446.40. SBI fell by 3.34 per cent to Rs 2,854.10. The Sensex fell by 232 points to 19,459.85 in the sell-off triggered by the CBI raids. In the reality pack, Man Infra plunged by 15.38 per cent, DB Reality by 16.23 per cent and Orbit Corp by 7.08 per cent. DLF was down 3.6 per cent and HDIL 5 per cent. Said Avinash Gupta, Vice President, Bonanza Portfolio, “The news about raids by CBI relating to certain officials of the LIC Housing Finance and Banks unnerved investors. There was a sharp sell-off in banks, finance companies and realty stocks. This caused the Nifty and the Sensex to move down and close in the red.” “The home loan scam added to the woes of investors. The Sensex is already hit by the Eurozone crisis, China’s tightening of economy, Koreas face-off and 2G spectrum scam,” said BSE broker Pawan Dharnidharka. “The new revelation by CBI about the multi-crore housing finance scam will only add to the woes,” said Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL. However, another dealer said the fall in banking stocks was a kneejerk reaction and the racket won’t have any impact on their performances.

The Sensex fell by 232 points to 19,459.85 in the sell-off that was triggered by the CBI raids.

Cheerleading Worlds

November 17th, 2010 by James

Cheerleading WorldsEvery year, top national and international cheerleading teams compete against each other trying to win applauds of the judges as well as the audience. The competition involves components such as jumps, cheers, dance, and tumbling and the national governing body for all star cheerleading is the USASF (U.S. All Star Federation) that holds the Cheerleading Worlds.

The USASF was constituted in the year 2004 by cheerleading competition companies to act as the national governing body and establish a set of rules and judging standards to be followed at all federation sanctioned competitions. The federation hosted the first Cheerleading Worlds on 24th April, 2004 at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Judges at the Cheerleading Worlds look out for illegal moves to ensure that everything is conducted in complete conformity to safety and difficulty restrictions. Points are awarded to a team on the basis of execution of jumps, difficulty level, synchronization, creativity, showmanship, overall execution, and stunts. It is worthwhile to note here that all-star cheerleaders are categorized into divisions based upon team size, age, gender, and ability level and age levels could vary from under 4 years to 18 years or above.

During an all-star cheerleading event, a team has a high chance of making it to the Cheerleading Worlds if it is placed good enough at the chosen USASF or IASF sanctioned national events. It can then compete against teams from all over the world and receive money for placing. It is important to note here that each team to appear in the Cheerleading Worlds must get a bid from a company and only teams that are level 5 or above can become teams for the Cheerleading Worlds.

All-star cheerleading teams attend competitions all over the year for the coveted bid and honor of attending the Cheerleading Worlds and become a part of this talent-filled competition and sport.

The success and popularity of this event has grown considerably over the last few years. The event of 2007 saw the participation of over 100 teams from fifteen countries and the numbers rose to 30 countries in the year 2009. The 2010 Cheerleading and Dance Worlds Championship were held at the newly re-branded ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex (Walt Disney World, Orlando FL from April 24 – 25, 2010) and nationally titled all-star teams were invited to test their skills and compete against the best cheerleading squads in the world at the Cheerleading Worlds.

Basic commandments of Facebook

November 8th, 2010 by James

Basic commandments of Facebook

Facebook, the world’s most popular social networking website, may be the most popular but there can be some dangers associated with using it.

Let us read about some dos and don’ts of being a part of the social networking giant, Facebook.

From in.news.yahoo.com:

“Posting certain photos or information on the site puts you at risk of being fired, a victim of crime, or even worse. There are computer programmes called ‘data mining’ that sweep Facebook to collect dates of birth, phone numbers, addresses etc. That’s gold dust to criminals,” the Sun quoted Whitelegg, an IT security expert, as saying.

Here are the 10 things you should never post on Facebook and why.

Date and place of birth- This places you at massive risk of identity theft. They are the most commonly used security questions on password resetting sites.

Mother’s maiden name-A lot of sites use your mother’s maiden name to authenticate who you are. They also commonly use the school you went to as a security question.

Address- It again puts you at risk from identity fraud, but also from burglars and stalkers.

Holidays-If you post an update on Facebook saying: “Can’t wait till next Wednesday – two weeks in Miami yeh!” you are basically saying: “Come and rob me.”

Short trips from home-Again, this can put you at risk of burglary and stalking.

In short, it is good to be on Facebook but only by disclosing a semi-complete public profile and using only those pieces of information that is safe for your personal, financial, and professional life.

November 2nd, 2010 by James

BlackBerry outshined by iPhoneA recent announcement about sales numbers has confirmed that iPhone has indeed surpassed BlackBerry smart phone in worldwide sales. This was after Apple boss Steve Jobs declared victory over BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) a week ago.

The iPhone has dethroned BlackBerry from the fourth position in global popularity, as per the data for the third quarter of 2010.

From in.news.yahoo.com:

In releasing the latest numbers, IDC, a global IT research firm based in Massachusetts, said that with 4.1 percent share of the global smart phone market, the iPhone has surpassed BlackBerry which now has a share of 3.6 percent.

Thus, the iPhone has made a gain of about 1.6 percent since last year.

With 32.4 percent share of the world smart phone market, Nokia still remains the global leader, followed by Samsung with 21 percent, and LG Electronics 8.3 percent.

Worldwide sales of smart phones during the third quarter rose to 340.5 million from 297.1 million units during the same period last year.

While Nokia sold 110.4 million units during the third quarter, Samsung 71.4 million, LG 28.4 million, Apple 14.1 million, and BlackBerry 12.4 million.

‘The entrance of Apple to the top 5 vendor ranking underscores the increased importance of smart phones to the overall market. Moreover, the mobile phone makers that are delivering popular smart phone models are among the fastest growing firms,” said IDC senior research analyst Kevin Restivo.

It was revealed in the report that Apple, RIM, and the vendors producing Android-based smart phones are putting a huge pressure on the market leader, Nokia.
