Captain Michael or Clement Michael Which among the two should be the

first_imgIt may be recalled that there were rumours earlier that the flick would be titled Verithanam, but a source from the film unit had stated that there was no truth in the reports. Thalapathy 63 is a sports drama which is expected to highlight the problems faced by football sports in cricket-crazy India. How Michael (Vijay) fights all the odds to ensure his team’s victory in a tournament forms the crux of the story.G Gnanasambandam, who plays the role of Nayanthara’s father in the film, says that the craze around football among Tamil youths would increase manifold after it sees the light of the day.Indhuja, Jackie Shroff, Yogi Babu and many others are part of the cast. Vijay in Simtaangaran song from his Sarkar.PR HandoutAtlee’s previous two movies with Vijay were titled Theri and Mersal, both the names were Tamil slangs. For his third film with the actor, people have been expecting him to choose the title on similar lines, but the director seems to have chosen a simple name which is apt for the content.The latest rumours claim that the makers have zeroed in on two names – Captain Michael and Clement Michael. It will be named after Vijay’s character in the film, presently referred to as Thalapathy 63.Vijay plays the role of a football coach and shortly called as CM, say rumours. Both the names gets mentioned in the movie at different times. So, the two names have been chosen although the makers are yet to finalise one title among the two.Which of the two do you like the most?

Richardson denies being asked to leave advisory panel

first_imgBill RichardsonVeteran US diplomat Bill Richardson denied he was asked by Myanmar’s government to step down from an international advisory board on the Rohingya crisis, his spokesman said on Friday.A statement issued by the office of Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi late on Thursday had accused Richardson of pursuing “his own agenda” and said that the government decided to ask him to quit as his continued participation on the board would not be in the best interests of all concerned.”At no point was the Governor asked to step down, either in person or in writing by any member of the Government of Myanmar or the Chair of the Advisory Board,” Richardson’s spokesman Mickey Bergman told Reuters.”Quite the opposite, their National Security Advisor stopped by the night before to convince the Governor to stay as planned.”Richardson said in an interview with Reuters on Wednesday that he was resigning from the board because it was conducting a “whitewash” and accused Myanmar’s leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, of lacking “moral leadership”.The departure of Richardson, a former Clinton administration cabinet member, came as the 10-member advisory board was making its first visit to western Rakhine State, from where around 688,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled in recent months.A U.S. official, who spoke on Thursday on condition of anonymity, said the issues raised by Richardson had reinforced concerns about Myanmar’s handling of the Rohingya crisis. Still, the official said, the United States would likely stick to its ”measured” approach of applying limited pressure on Myanmar and avoiding more drastic measures that could destabilize the situation.’CHEERLEADING SQUAD’A separate statement from the nine remaining members of the advisory board on Thursday said they met this week “with open minds” and agreed “to speak with one voice”.”Therefore, any statement about the Advisory Board ‘whitewashing’ or ‘cheerleading’ for anyone lacks complete legitimacy,” the board said.Richardson said in the Reuters interview that he was worried the board would become “a cheerleading squad” for the government.Richardson’s spokesman said the reference to pursuing his own agenda would seem to refer to his addressing with Suu Kyi the issue of two imprisoned Reuters journalists.In his interview with Reuters, Richardson said he got into a furious argument with Suu Kyi at a Monday night dinner when he brought up the case of two Reuters reporters, who were arrested on Dec. 12 on suspicion of violating Myanmar’s Official Secrets Act.Reporters Wa Lone, 31, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 27, had worked on Reuters coverage of the crisis in Rakhine. They were detained on Dec. 12 after they had been invited to meet police officers over dinner in Yangon.”It’s important to note that he agreed to serve on the Board a month before the Reuters journalists were arrested,” said Richardson’s spokesman Bergman.The armed forces have been accused by Rohingya witnesses and human rights activists of carrying out killings, rapes and arson in Rakhine in a campaign senior officials in the United Nations and United States have described as ethnic cleansing. Myanmar rejects that label and has denied nearly all the allegations.The former New Mexico governor’s foundation, the Richardson Center, has “invested tens of thousands of dollars of its own money” in preparing for his role on the board “and were gearing up for a full year of robust programming for 2018,” Bergman said.Richardson led the first foreign delegation allowed to visit Suu Kyi in 1994 when she was under house arrest, Bergman said, “and helped to get many Myanmar political prisoners out during military rule, some are currently serving in her government.”It is heartbreaking to see her indulging in similar practices, now that she is in power,” Bergman added.REPATRIATION CAMPSFormer South African Defence Minister Roelof Petrus Meyer, one of the four remaining international members of the board, said on Thursday Richardson’s departure was “really unfortunate”.After touring temporary repatriation camps set up by Myanmar, Meyer said he thought the country was ready to take back the Rohingya refugees under an agreement with Bangladesh, where they are currently sheltering.”The security will be provided…the subject is so internationally covered so I don’t think (Rohingya) people should be scared,” he said.The Advisory Board for the Committee for Implementation of the Recommendations on Rakhine State was set up by Myanmar last year, to advise on enacting the findings of an earlier commission headed by former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan.Thursday’s statement from Suu Kyi’s office said the government was committed to “implementing the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine State to the fullest extent possible and in the shortest timeframe, in accordance with the situation on the ground”.last_img read more

Aussie cops raid public broadcaster ABC amid media crackdown

first_imgn this file photo taken on 27 September 2018 the logo for Australia`s public broadcaster ABC is seen at its head office building in Sydney. Photo: AFPAustralian police raided the headquarters of public broadcaster ABC on Wednesday, the second high-profile raid on journalists in 24 hours in a sharp crackdown on sensitive leaks.Six police descended on the corporation’s offices in Sydney armed with a warrant targeting three senior journalists and executives involved in a two-year-old investigative report.In 2017, ABC obtained documents that showed Australian special forces had killed innocent men and children in Afghanistan.The Australian Federal Police said the search was “in relation to allegations of publishing classified material, contrary to provisions of the Crimes Act 1914.”ABC executive editor John Lyons said the search warrant demanded access to reporters’ handwritten notes, emails, story drafts, footage and passwords, among other things — going through a total of 9,214 documents.”This is a really serious escalation of the attack on the free media, and that hits the public,” he said as the raid continued. “I’ve never seen an assault on the media as savage as this.””It’s not just about the media. It’s about any person out there who wants to tell the media about a bad hospital or a school that’s not working. Or a corrupt local council.”A day earlier police raided a journalist’s home in Canberra over a report that detailed the authorities’ bid to gain powers to spy on Australian citizens communications at home.Police said there was “no link” between the two raids which relate to “separate allegations of publishing classified material”.Both stories involved sensitive and potentially classified materials and were embarrassing to the Australian government and the security services in particular.Prime Minister Scott Morrison has tried to distance himself from the raids, which come just days after the re-election of his conservative government, insisting they were police, not government, matters.”Australia believes strongly in the freedom of the press and we have clear rules and protections for the freedom of the press,” he said during a visit to London.”There are also clear rules protecting Australia’s national security and everybody should operate in accordance with all of those laws passed by our parliament.”- ‘Attempt to intimidate’ -Police said that controversial Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton was not notified about the raids beforehand, and that the issues had been referred by two unnamed agency heads.Shadow home affairs minister, the Labor party’s Kristina Keneally, demanded an explanation for why the raids occurred.Although the press in Australia can report largely free of political interference, strict defamation laws, court gag orders and state security statutes affect what can be said in print and broadcast.Australia’s Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance union branded the raids a “disturbing attempt to intimidate legitimate news journalism that is in the public interest.””Police raiding journalists is becoming normalised and it has to stop… it seems that when the truth embarrasses the government, the result is the Federal Police will come knocking at your door.”last_img

HTC CoFounder Cher Wang to Take Some Duties From CEO

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 2 min read A workload shift at HTC will increase the duties of co-founder and chairwoman Cher Wang as the company focuses on regaining market share.Wang will take on operational duties for the Taiwanese smartphone maker, and CEO Peter Chou will lessen his load at the company to focus on innovation, according to the Financial Times.In what is being touted as a temporary move, Wang will expand her day-to-day presence from two to six days a week to work on sales, marketing and supplier relationships, according to the FT. Chou, who has served as the company’s CEO for nearly a decade, will concentrate on product development.“I have become very focused in the past couple of months. Before that I was too busy,” Chou told the FT. “I took on too many things. I need to be more focused on innovation and [the] product portfolio.”Related: HTC’s Cher Wang on Innovation and the ‘It’ Product It’s been a rocky period for the company. In October, the smartphone and tablet maker reported a bigger than expected quarterly loss. It was the first quarterly loss for the company since going public. Some wondered if Chou would stick around but, in June, he reportedly said he had no plans to leave HTC.Earlier this year, the company introduced the HTC One, a smartphone expected to be a competitor to Apple and Samsung mobile devices, but failed to make a huge dent in the market.Last year, Wang spoke to Entrepreneur.com about staying ahead of trends. “We must always keep an eye on our environment, to keep track of what changes are happening in technology, in infrastructure, in markets, in how people across the world are living their lives, working and communicating. We need to anticipate these trends and innovate to meet them. Within HTC, hundreds of ideas are tested and discarded to find those rare ideas that define the HTC user experience,” she said.

Why Teslas Gigafactory Could Be Obsolete Before It Even Opens

first_imgApril 27, 2015 A disruptive shadow looms over Tesla Motors’ giant Nevada “gigafactory”—the threat of rapidly advancing battery technology. While plenty of hurdles face new battery tech, the emergence of a viable and significantly better battery in the next five years could turn Tesla’s $5 billion facility for mass producing lithium-ion batteries into a giga-albatross.In January, Fuji Pigment Co. Ltd. (not affiliated with Fujifilm) announced that it had made a significant breakthrough in aluminum-air battery technology. Aluminium-air batteries have a theoretical capacity more than 40 times greater than the lithium-ion cells Tesla will soon mass-produce, and Fuji Pigment has stated it will commercialize its innovation by the end of 2015. This means that the gigafactory’s products could already be outclassed before its target 2016 opening—and long before the estimated 7-10 years of full production it could take to recoup the factory’s costs.Battery innovation takes place within a rigid structure: every battery has two ‘sides,’ the cathode and anode, which react through an electrolyte medium to produce power. An aluminum-air battery generates electricity from the reaction of oxygen and aluminum, using water as an electrolyte. A standard aluminium-air reaction consumes the aluminum anode, which must be physically replaced rather than electrically recharged. But Fuji Pigment claims that, by adding strategically placed layers of ceramic and carbon, it has managed to suppress corrosion and reaction byproducts, creating an aluminium-air battery that can be recharged multiple times by simply adding water.Dr. Mark Hersam, professor of materials science and engineering at Northwestern University, says that it would be “stunning” if Fuji Pigment hit their target for commercialization. Among other unaddressed issues, he points out that aluminium-air batteries physically contract as they discharge, which can lead to fracturing and make them difficult to integrate into fault-intolerant automotive systems.In an email, Ryohei Mori, Fuji Pigment’s lead researcher on the aluminium-air project, sounded a slightly more cautious note than the company’s January press release. “We are still at developing stage, and maybe in the near future . . . we can work together with large scale.”But Fuji Pigment is not the only company working on a better battery. Israel’s Phinergy is also pursuing the aluminium-air dream, while American startups Pathion and Sakti 3 are looking at an even more radical innovation—solid-state batteries that replace liquid electrolytes with ceramic or crystal. Sakti 3 has successfully demoed a battery that produces 1,000 watt-hours of energy per liter of battery volume, which in practice could more than double the driving range of a current Tesla. Pathion CEO Michael Liddle projects that solid-state battery technology will be market-ready within two years.Of course, the main point of the gigafactory is not to produce cutting-edge batteries, but to produce existing tech on a scale that will bring costs down—Tesla hopes to sell an electric sedan for $35,000. But in this regard, too, both aluminium-air and solid-state batteries have a potential edge. Aluminum is far cheaper than lithium, and solid-state batteries could be ‘printed’ like computer chips, a much more efficient process than the layering and rolling of metal and gel that produces lithium-ion batteries.According to Dan Radomski, vice president for industry and venture development at the consulting firm NextEnergy, it would be very difficult for Tesla to pivot in response to these innovations. “It’s not too much different from us going from VHS to disc. It changes the entire supply chain.”The demands of the automotive sector may buy Tesla some time. Cars are subject to high and low temperatures that have a significant impact on battery performance, and the standard for safety is understandably high. While lithium-ion batteries have shown some problems in responding to high temperatures, decades of testing have gone into gaining it acceptance for use in cars.Tesla will also likely have some options for upgrading the gigafactory’s lithium-ion products. Researchers at Nangyang Technological University have developed a fast-charging titanium dioxide anode, and Mark Hersam’s team at Northwestern has doubled the capacity of a lithium-ion anode by interlacing materials like graphene. Though cathode advances have trailed, integrating new materials would not require a wholesale overhaul of the gigafactory’s lithium-ion production process.Ultimately, the biggest question mark for the gigafactory’s long-term viability are less technological than strategic. An innovation in a lab is not the same as a working product, and Pathion’s Michael Liddle says that the piecemeal nature of battery research has limited real-world advances. Many startups and researchers can produce a better cathode, anode, or electrolyte, but all three must work together perfectly to make a battery. The capital to bring the pieces together, and bring production of new batteries to scale, has been scarce.But that’s likely to change with major manufacturers like Cadillac and BMW moving more aggressively into electrics. With range an ever more vital competitive point, increasing amounts of capital will be chasing the next big battery (GM is a major investor in Sakti 3). That could push the rate of change beyond what even Tesla CEO Elon Musk could have foreseen.
