CBI on day filed charge sheet in the alleged Rs. 10 crore cash-for-post Railway bribery scandal before special court in New Delhi naming former railway minister PK Bansal's nephew Vijay Singla and suspended Board member Mahesh Kumar among 10 accused.

 

The agency filed its charge sheet before the special CBI judge Swarna Kanta Sharma naming 10 accused which include Kumar, Singla, middlemen Sandeep Goyal, Samir Sandhir, Sushil Daga, Ajay Garg, Rahul Yadav, businessman Manjunath and his two aides-PV Murali and Venugopal.

 

The two courier boys who delivered the bribe amount have not been named in the charge sheet. However, names of PV Murali and Venugopal have been added.

Bansal, who lost his job after the scam surfaced, was questioned at length by CBI during the course of the investigation but was not named in the charge sheet as the agency could not find any evidence of his direct involvement as of now.

The Truss Times - Online News Portal : India's low cost tablet dream lives on with Aakash IV

The Truss Times - Online News Portal : India's low cost tablet dream lives on with Aakash IV | Get Updated Today for Tommorow | Scoop.it
Latest news In India, States News of India, World News, Latest Cricket News, Latest Hollywood news, Latest Bollywood News, Headlines, Breaking News, Latest Politics News, Latest Business News, Hindi News, English News...
Truss Times's insight:

The Indian government is pushing ahead with plans for a new and improved low-cost Aakash tablet for students which it hopes will reinvigorate a project hit by countless delays.

The technical specs of the proposed Android-based Aakash IV have been posted to the web sites of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) to allow stakeholders to comment.

The seven incher should be no more than 500g in weight and 0.75in thick, with a minimum of 1 GB DDR3 SDRAM, alongside at least 4GB internal storage which can be expanded by up to 32GB with an SD card, according to the proposals.

Battery capacity should be enough for at least three hours of 720p video playback and five hours of web browsing.

The government wants to stick with “the latest Android stable version” but said the tablet needs to be dual bootable through an external SD card to also offer the latest version of Ubuntu.

Browser-wise it needs HTML5 support and the default language of the device will be set to English, although support for multiple Indian languages including Hindi, Tamil and Punjabi is a must.

As a learning tool for students, there is also a strict requirement for USB, mouse, keyboard, and “all popular” 2G, 3G and 4G data dongles to be supported.

In a blow to UK firm Datawind, which produced the first two iterations of the Aakash, the government said it hadn’t decided who would be awarded the lucrative contract this time around.

The firm may well be fearing the worst, given that the project has been plagued by problems up to this point.

The first version of the tablet, launched in October 2011, was roundly slated, mainly because of its poor resistive touchscreen.

Things got even worse when Datawind had a falling out with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jodhpur and IIT Rajasthan – organisations leading the project at a regional level – which ended up delaying shipments.

The project seemingly got back on track last year after Datawind launched the Aakash 2 – a slightly higher spec’d version with an improved (capacitive) touchscreen.

There have still been grumbles, however, that despite the extremely low cost – just Rs 1,130 ($US24.65) to students – the device simply isn’t good enough.

Further shipping delays have imperilled the project again, so the Aakash IV may be the government’s last chance to get things right and finally put a tablet in the hands of millions of students in 25,000 colleges and 400 universities across the sub-continent.

Wearing headphones for just an hour will increase the bacteria in your ear by 700 times !!

 

Wearing headphone is not bad; but wearing it for more than 30 minutes at a go is bad for the ears.

 

When you put on headphones, you cover your ears from the natural air, which increases production of bacteria by 700% in 1hr. Your ear drum naturally can not bear influx of bacteria in that quantity so it starts to react by paining or hearing loss in long term.

 

Secondly, when you are listening to fast music/ high beat sound which goes direct to your brain due to headphones, it affects the fine tissue/membrane of the brain eventually listener becomes hyper or excited which is bad in long run.

Truss Times's insight:

Monday began rather innocuously with Minister of Information and Broadcasting Manish Tewari tweeting why the BJP's leaders in Parliament hadn't visited disaster-hit Uttarakhand. Tewari's tweet was like a match to gunpowder; a cyber-brawl began, and grew through the day.

 

Bigwigs from both sides got sucked in, Sushma Swaraj, Ajay Maken, Digvijaya Singh, Nirmala Sitharaman were among those in the 140-character ring. If this is a taste of things to come, the Big Battle of 2014 promises to be the nastiest yet.

 

BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi had the last words in, winding the day with the stunner that it was a "thousand times better to be a Rambo than be a Dumbo or a Scambo.'' But it's not over, not by a long shot or by a short tweet.

 

 

Tewari's trigger for Monday's mobile madness read: "Did anyone see LOPs (leaders of opposition) in both houses express sympathy, visit disaster hit Uttarakhand This from a party that criticises the visit of Congress leader," he tweeted. Tewari was referring to Congress vicepresident Rahul Gandhi's visit to Uttarakhand, which came in for criticism from the BJP. 

 

Tewari followed up with: "H'onble LOPs have mindspace to critique govt proposals on CBI autonomy that are yet to be placed before SC, but no time to visit Uttarakhand." Perhaps even Tewari wouldn't have expected it but within a short while, Swaraj, who maintains an active social media presence, gave as good as the minister was doling out.

 

  

 

 

"We didn't go to Uttarakhand because Home Minister made a public statement that our visit will hamper the rescue effort...He went to the extent of saying that nobody including himself was allowed to land anywhere." She defended the charge against herself. "The truth is that I woke up to the scale of the tragedy when I spoke to Home Minister on June 18 and tweeted about this," she said. Public e x change While this public exchange was still on, Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh and the party's communication cell in-charge Ajay Maken jumped in. "Blame Game in UK must stop, (sic)" Digvijaya posted, adding, "now that 1 lakh pilgrims have been successfully evacuated, villagers that have been swept away must be resettled." 

 

 

Maken was more direct, and vitriolic. He addressed Swaraj's account and posted, "Pyre of many victims of this natural calamity still warm. First BJP tried to take credit of evacuating 15,000 in a day... Instead of helping in relief works in Uttarakhand, don't try to use this calamity as a political opportunity. #NoPoliticsOverCalamity. (sic)" Swaraj's one-woman cavalry was then joined by senior BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman. 

 

She responded to Maken. "If NoPoliticsOverCalamity is used to cover up failure, is it ok? Using 15k story is deflecting attention from the issue. 15k story is questionable...The central government flip flop too showed that they were giving knee-jerk responses

 

Sushma ji has only raised these issues," she said in her tweets. By this time, non-Congress and non-BJP politicians had jumped in to call a truce. "A humble request: will all politicos call a truce on Twitter and stop mudslinging on UTK. The debate can wait, (sic)" Derek O'Brien, Trinamool parliamentarian said. There was no stopping Tewari.

 

In his two posts on Monday afternoon, Tewari kept up the attack on Sushma and the BJP. "If LOP follows the advice of HM, how come it does not apply to the BJP President and poll panel chief? Different strokes for different folks... BJP's quixotic logic-salute Army, Air force, Para, military, but assail govt. Last when I read Constitution, all these were part of govt and deployed by govt."

 

 

Another common Congress face on TV channels, Sanjay Jha, took a dig at Sushma. "Please do not take Sushma Swarajji too seriously. After her 10 heads for 1, we need to understand that hyperbole is visceral to her," he posted. 

 

Virtual hos tilities It was Word War by afternoon, social media footsoldiers of both parties too joining the discourse. By late afternoon, hostilities had jumped from the virtual to the real world. Senior BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi questioned the UPA government's credibility. "Look at the credibility of this government, not even one country came forward to extend help," said Naqvi, who is known for his one-liners. "If there is one natural disaster, it is the Congress," he added.

 

Congress leader Ambika Soni termed Swaraj's remarks as "unfortunate." She even hit out at the BJP organisation, saying that she didn't know what the party was saying as she didn't see any of its workers on ground in Uttarakhand.

Square fruit stuns Japanese shoppers.

 

They look clever, but not all shoppers like the price tag

Japan has again shown off one of its greatest innovations - square watermelons.

For years consumers struggled to fit the large round fruit in their refrigerators.

 

 Watermelons

The round watermelon is unlikely to go out of favour

And then there was the problem of trying to cut the fruit when it kept rolling around.

 

But 20 years ago a forward-thinking farmer on Japan's south-western island of Shikoku solved the problem.

 

The farmer, from Zentsuji in Kagawa prefecture, came up with the idea of making a cube-shaped watermelon which could easily be packed and stored.

 

Fashion food

 

To make it happen, farmers grew the melons in glass boxes and the fruit then naturally assumed the same shape. Today the cuboid watermelons are hand-picked and shipped all over Japan.

 

But the fruit, on sale in a selection of department stores and upmarket supermarkets, appeals mainly to the wealthy and fashion-conscious of Tokyo and Osaka, Japan's two major cities.

 

Each melon sells for 10,000 yen, equivalent to about $83. It is almost double, or even triple, that of a normal watermelon.

 

"I can't buy it, it is too expensive," said a woman browsing at a department store in the southern city of Takamatsu.

 

They get square watermelons by growing them inside of square glass cases. That way they can fit easily into an overcrowded refrigerator, and you can stack things on them.

 

Square watermelons are expensive though (10,000 yen or about $82). Compare that to regular round watermelons which cost about $15-20 in Japan.

 

The square boxes they're grown in are the exact dimensions of Japanese refrigerators, which means they fit perfectly. At $82 each, these square watermelons probably wouldn't be too popular in the United States. Our solution for a lack of refrigerator space? Smaller, seedless watermelons.
