Purvi Joshi's insight:

Initiative taken by BBMP for contractors. The BBMP has the doubtful difference of allotting projects and select carefully with a particular purpose in mind with offering single tenders to favour contractors and accepting tenders after the lapse of the due date.

Land Pooling to be adopted for developing new AP capital

Land Pooling to be adopted for developing new AP capital | Miscellaneous | Scoop.it
Acquiring land is a pressing issue that the Andhra government has to address immediately as it embarks on the process of developing its new capital. It had earlier decided on developing the new capital along the Vijayawada-Guntur stretch, with large parcels of government land available in the Vijayawada-Guntur-Tenali- Mangalgiri (VGTM) region. But, considering that the government would require about one lakh acres of land to develop the new capital, relying entirely on available government land would not be feasible. Hence, it is considering options like land pooling to acquire the requisite land needed. The government is planning to formulate a new land pooling policy which will enable it to acquire land required within six months. Impact on Realty market The land pooling policy is expected to have a major impact on the realty market in the region. The government is expected to enforce stringent measures to see that no land transactions are undertaken in areas which are proposed for land pooling. Consequentially, property prices are expected to increase exponentially in areas in the vicinity. The government initiative in developing land acquired through the land pooling process will go a long way in enhancing the realty market in surrounding areas. Developers are likely to acquire land in the vicinity so as to embark on residential projects at the opportune time. Investors in such land are expected to get healthy returns in future with their value expected to increase many-fold in future. Effectiveness of Land Pooling The Andhra government is in favour of acquiring land through the land pooling method, considering its effectiveness it the development of other capital cities like Gandhinagar and Raipur. Moreover, it is felt to be more effective compared to other options like land acquisition and price negotiations with land owners. The government plans to develop the new capital in four phases within each phase requiring about 25,000 acres each for developing various government establishments as well as other infrastructure facilities. However, for farmers not willing to part with their land under the land pooling policy, the government will acquire their land by paying them about four times the existing market value. As per the new land pooling policy, the government will acquire land from farmers. However, instead of being compensated for the land acquired, the farmers from whom land was acquired would be given a share of the developed land. Considering that this would be more beneficial for farmers, the government plans to create awareness among farmers in this regard. Following development of land under land pooling, the government plans to return about 40 per cent to the developed land back to its owners. Besides, the government also plans to offer about Rs 15,000 to 25,000 for every acre of land acquired for 5-10 years, to farmers whose land has been acquired.

Ben Travers:  "With the studio's first ever original kids' shows debuting this summer, Amazon is trying to break into children’s programming from a groundbreaking new angle: long-term education."

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, May 26, 2014 5:38 PM

Journalists and society-at-large do #Amazon and viewers a huge disservice by tagging kid-centric content as '#binge-viewing' as if putting the viewer in control of what he/she watches is a bad thing--not to mention that it has nothing to do with what Amazon is trying to accomplish with their programming for preschoolers.  


Creators working with Amazon have intentionally tried to step out of their adult bias and look through eyes of preschoolers.  Their goal is to create engaging content that triggers curiosity and creativity.   This is the same approach I advocate for storytelling and central to the persona development and audience profiling in the courses & workshops we teach via Fielding's Masters program.  The fact that Amazon streaming allows for viewer controlled consumption encourages other activities because there is no #FOMO by playing through scheduled broadcasts.  Seriously, how is this even remotely negative?  When will we get over blaming the audience for exercising choice in content consumption?  I get how this is disruptive to current business models and how media companies might not be thrilled at having to be more creative to earn attention and loyalty, but consumers should be celebrating not labeling and journalists should get on board.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, May 27, 2014 4:08 AM

 Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios:

:

"We're not asking them to sit in front of the television and tie them to a block of programming [like with standard broadcast television]. They can pause it.

They can rewatch it. It offers up a nice amount of flexibility, so I don't think it's just about keeping them in front of a 'screen' for us."

REVIEW: Fujifilm X-E2 – A DSLR Replacement? | Ron Martinsen

REVIEW: Fujifilm X-E2 – A DSLR Replacement? | Ron Martinsen | Miscellaneous | Scoop.it


... If you are looking for an x100s with interchangeable lenses or you were disappointed with the X-Pro1 performance then your dream camera has arrived. There’s lots to love about the X-E2 as its build quality is excellent, the lens choices are plentiful, and the image quality makes me fall in love with photography all over again. This is an excellent product that I long to own should I decide to buy with my heart instead of my head, but for now common sense keeps me behind a DSLR for at least another generation. If you don’t already own a DSLR then I’d say start with this camera and invest in the X mount lenses. If you stick with prime lenses, the AF performance seems to improve so there’s a workaround if you are willing to pay the price of more lenses. The Fujifilm X-E2 is an excellent camera that I highly recommend. I also think it makes sense over the x100s as XF 23mm lens will give you everything people love about the x100s with better image quality and the ability to swap to a different lens when you need it. If I owned an X-E2, I’d have to get the 23mm prime in addition to a good zoom.....
