first_imgA manifesto is a 5 year vision for political parties and the road map for social and economic goals. When a vision suddenly misses its significant presence in the manifesto, after it was prominently inked in earlier case, it suggests that it loses its sheen to achieve the goal. In the 2014 BJP manifesto, FDI was heightened as the backbone for Make in India. A separate chapter on Foreign Investment was included. In 2019 manifesto, a feather touch was made on foreign investment. To this end, missing FDI significance in 2019 manifesto raised eyebrows of many. In 2014 manifesto, it chanted “FDI will be allowed wherever needed for job and asset creation…We should not remain a market for global industry. Rather, we should become a Global Manufacturing hub”. Also Read – A special kind of bondDuring BJP’s ruling, India received a gushing flow of cash from foreign investors. Not only this, there was a great leap in quality FDI flow. During 2017-18, more than one-fourth of FDI was flowed in computer software/ hardware and telecommunication, compared to one-sixth share in 2014-15. Given this paradigm shift in FDI, India made a dynamic shift in modern equipment manufacturing and development of services. Indeed, FDI contributed a lot in upgrading India’s manufacturing level to modern manufacturing. Today, more than 50 per cent of cellular mobile phones are manufactured in the country, against none in 2014 after Nokia shut down its shop in Chennai Also Read – Insider threat managementDuring the first four years of BJP government, its pro-foreign investment policy stoked FDI in the country. It spurred by over 45 per cent during the four years period – from US$ 31 billion in 2014-15 to US$45 billion in 2017-18. Besides gushing flow, FDI perked up India’s modern manufacturing level akin to Global Value Chain manufacturing. During 2016-17 and 2017-18, more than one-fourth of FDI flowed in computer software and hardware and telecommunications, such as manufacturing cellular mobile phones and communication equipment. One of the major roles of FDI for an emerging economy is balancing the trade deficit, particularly when the nation is swamped by heavy import of crude oil. India is hamstrung by widening trade deficit, mainly due to large dependence on crude oil. In addition to this, with Modi led BJP vowing for fast growth in digitisation, demand for electronics sky-rocketed. Eventually, it triggered imports of electronic items, given the lackluster development in the country. Electronic imports are the second biggest component in India’s total imports, after crude oil. China is the biggest supplier of electronic items to India, and hence, the major cause of widening trade deficit. In 2017-18, India’s trade deficit with China was highest. It accounted for 38 per cent of India’s total trade deficit. The main cause for this was oversupply of electronic items by China. Over 57 per cent of India’s total imports of electronic items came from China. Given this situation, the counter measure to reduce the trade deficit suggests that more and more Chinese investment should be lured in India, instead of anti-dumping measures. China is seen not a foe, but an opportunity after the US-China trade tiff. Trust deficit has diluted and both are vying each other hearts to increase bilateral investment and trade. Deceleration in Chinese GDP growth, with a rare hope in reverting to high growth paradise in the near term, caused a paranoia among the foreign investors, including the Chinese. Eventually, investment through M&A in China slumped. The steep downfall led China less attractive than India. In 2018, investment in India through M&A was US$ 93.7 billion, which was three times more than in China, amounting to US$ 32.8 billion. The volta-face of China towards India, affected by dilution in trust deficit during the ongoing trade war, was unveiled by its praise over India’s potential as an important destination for investment. According to Mr. Zjao Gancheng, Director of Centre for Asia Pacific Studies at Shanghai Institute of International Studies “India has a wealth of experiences in utilising international capital. There is no doubt it has become more attractive to foreign investors”. As of the end of 2017, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce recorded Chinese investment in India more than US $ 8 billion. Start-ups, infrastructure, and electronic manufacturing have become the key areas for Chinese investment. Nearly US $2.5 billion was committed for investment in Start-up business in between 2015 and 2016. The major investments were Beijing Mitene Communication Technology investment of US $ 900 million in Media.net and Alibaba investment of US$680 million in Paytem and US$ 500 million in Snapdeal. Chinese brand cellular phones, manufactured in India, account for over 51 per cent of the smartphones sales in India. Large penetration of Chinese top brands of smartphones, like Xiaomi, Oppo, One-plus, Gionee, Vivo, Huawei are posing challenges to Koreans and Japanese brands. The Deloitte survey, Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index (GMCI), 2016, forecasted India to outbid China in low-cost manufacturing competitiveness in the next five years. According to the survey, while China will lose the powerhouse of low-cost manufacturing competitiveness, the Mighty Five – the five Asia Pacific nations, Malaysia, India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam – will emerge the choice for low-cost manufacturing in place of China. India will be the frontrunner with four countries chasing behind, the survey said. (The views expressed are strictly personal)last_img read more

first_imginthinc Technology Solutions, developer of technologies to improve mine driving safety, has announced its new blastZoneTM technology. With this new feature, now available as part of the inthinc waySmartTM fleet safety system, mining companies can receive real-time tracking and instant alerts for vehicles operating in open-pit mine blast zones. When a detonation is planned, dispatch can easily create a blast zone map through the online inthinc portal. In one click, the manager can instantly see the location of every vehicle in the fleet and determine whether any of the trucks are in the blast zone. For drivers, if their vehicle is currently in-or at any time enters-the blast zone, the in-cab waySmart device will alert them. They can then communicate with dispatch for safe exit instructions.“It can be a complicated and time-consuming process to clear multiple mining vehicles away from a blast zone via radio,” said Todd Follmer, CEO of inthinc. “The blastZone technology raises the safety level at mining sites by giving companies real-time vehicle positioning and real-time warnings for drivers regarding the time and location of a planned detonation. This simplifies the process of clearing a blast zone and gives dispatchers 100% confidence that every vehicle and every driver is safe and accounted for.”inthinc waySmart is a comprehensive driving safety system that can change driuver behaviour in real time to improve safety and fleet efficiency. A unique combination of in-vehicle driver alerts, vehicle location and diagnostics, and fleet management provide detailed performance and trends for individual drivers or the entire fleet. This has been proven to deliver immediate results including fewer accidents, improved fuel efficiency, reduced carbon dioxide emissions and millions of dollars in reduced costs per year.last_img read more

first_imgOn August 5, Missouri voters will decide on a constitutional amendment protecting farmers’ ability to raise crops and livestock today and into the future. The Missouri Soybean Association is currently working to raise awareness of Amendment 1 in partnership with other agricultural organizations by connecting with elected officials through town halls and other community events to educate all sectors involved with agriculture – from producers to consumers. The Missouri Soybean Association is a founding member of Missouri Farmers Care. This coalition, Missouri Farmers Care, was formed in the aftermath of Proposition B to protect agriculture from outside special interests and to reconnect farmers and consumers through education and outreach efforts. “Out-of-state animal rights groups are trying to dictate how we farm,” said Gary Wheeler, Missouri Soybean Association CEO/Executive Director. “We must once again prove Missouri farm families know what’s best for Missouri agriculture.”Opposition is mounting and we are now taking our grassroots campaign to the next level. Plans are underway to expand our targeted advertising and raise the bar from direct mail and radio spots to television. Missouri farmers have invested in this fight steadily, with more than 1,000 farm families signing on as campaign partners at www.mofarmerscare.com.This is an ongoing battle across the country and these attacks affect all of agriculture, regardless of the states in which they are fought. Missouri Soybean Association is asking for farmers and Missouri citizens to help in protecting the long-term stability and success of our industry with a as a partner and with a contribution to Missouri Farmers Care. We are in the final six weeks before the vote and need your support.last_img read more

first_imgAn FAA cam at Lake Clark Pass West, at the northeast corner of Lake Clark, looking northeast. Ice fog conditions can develop quickly in this area, say local pilots, even when the weather is clear elsewhere. (Photo courtesy of FAA)A second day of search efforts continued for a plane that went missing between Port Alsworth and Anchorage on Wednesday. Four people from Port Alsworth were on board.Listen NowThe missing single engine Piper PA-28 Cherokee is owned by Lake Clark Air, but is used as a rental or training aircraft. The renting pilot, a passenger and his two children left Port Alsworth Wednesday morning. It was unclear early Thursday what their exact flight plan had been, but it was believed they were heading to Anchorage and were reported overdue early afternoon.“The plane took off approximately 10:30 from Port Alsworth, and was scheduled to get to Merrill Field in Anchorage at about noon,” Alaska Air National Guard spokesman Staff Sgt. Edward Eagerton said. “The plane was supposed to be taking a route through Lake Clark Pass. The plane didn’t show up, so the gears of the rescue mission spooled up.”An extensive search and rescue effort was launched Wednesday afternoon, with two fixed wing aircraft flying the route with rescuers on-board. An HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopter joined the search later. Thick ice fog and the early sunset hampered search efforts.“There was a lot of fog in the pass, so their search area was pretty limited, between that and darkness,” Eagerton said. “They flew the area around Port Alsworth, the north and south shore, and then on the other end of the pass on the Peninsula, and hadn’t found them yet.”He pointed out that pilots could use night vision equipment to fly into the evening, but the fog was the limiting factor.There was no emergency locator beacon transmitting from the area. The Cherokee is equipped with an ELT that should go off in the event of a crash, or can be manually activated after an unexpected landing.The second day of the search started early Thursday, according to Eagerton.“Five planes from the Civil Air Patrol are going to assist in the search,” Eagerton said at around 8:00 a.m. “As well they’re going to be launching the HH-60 and one of the C-130’s a little before first light so they’re going to be on station as the light comes up, and resume the search.”By 1:00 p.m. Thursday, the search had produced no updates. Glen Alsworth, Sr., whose company owns the Cherokee, said the small, tight-knit community was prayerfully waiting for news.“We’re so thankful that the assets that are put on the search effort are so incredible,” Alsworth said. “The military side, numerous wonderful assets on the search. Civil Air Patrol is out searching, private aircraft are out searching, and I just heard a little bit ago that a number of boats have launched at Lake Clark and are searching the shoreline as well. We’re very fortunate that so many folks are putting so much effort, and we’re all praying for a very quick and good resolution to it. We appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers.”The weather through Lake Clark Pass was reported as less than ideal Wednesday, with some flights staying grounded on account of the thick ice fog. Lake Clark Pass is the main route for small aircraft traveling from Anchorage or Kenai in and out of southwest Alaska.A little over a month ago, David McRae, 55, was killed in a crash while flying solo from Anchorage to Lake Clark through Merrill Pass, an accident still under investigation.last_img read more

first_imgWhat is more shocking about Kaabil is that its three-day collections are little more than the opening day collection of the recent Indian release – Mom in China. The late Sridevi starrer, which was released on May 10, collected $ 1.68 million at the Chinese box office on the first day. The film showed decent growth and grossed $2.22 million on the second day and $2.10 million on the third day.The above numbers show that Hrithik Roshan has long way to reach the popularity levels of Aamir Khan and Salman Khan. However, one thing is clear that Hrithik has made an attempt to penetrate in to Chinese market with his flop movie. His intention is very clear that he does not want to score a big hit with it. But he wants to become a family name in the country and make a small fanbase with it.Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 is lined up for release in India on 12 and the actor will take it to the Chinese audience in the later days. It is a biographical drama film, based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar and his educational program Super 30. This kind of inspirational subjects have worked wonders in China. One should not wonder, if it break the records of Aamir Khan’s Dangal, which is the highest grossing Indian movie in the Chinese box office. Hrithik Roshan, Aamir and Salman KhanCollage of photos taken from Twitter and FacebookBollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan is far below in the popularity graph in China than his colleagues Aamir and Salman Khan. The poor collection of Kaabil at the Chinese box office is proof for it.It is Aamir Khan, who showed the Indian filmmakers that China is the potential foreign market for desi film. He is the most popular Indian actor in China and the success of Dangal, which collected over Rs 1,200 crore in the country is proof for his fame. Even his flop movies like Secret Superstar and Thugs of Hindostan have received better opening in China and made better collection than their business in India.Later, two other Khans followed his suit, but got mixed reception. Shah Rukh Khan tried his luck with Happy New Year, which failed to make it big at the Chinese box office. However, Salman Khan was successful in striking a chord with audience in China with his offerings like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan, which have become blockbuster success with their superb collections at the Chinese box office.Of late, many Indian filmmakers vying their hands to get a slot to release their films in China and Hrithik Roshan’s 2017 movie Kaabil is one of those attempts. The Sanjay Gupta-directed action thriller film was reportedly released in 15,000 screens across the country on June 5 and broke the records of Sultan (11000 screens), Dangal (9,000 screens), Bajrangi Bhaijan (8,000 screens) and Bahubali 2 (7,000 screens).Considering its huge screen count, the Hrithik Roshan starrer was expected to make bigger collection than above mentioned movies at the Chinese box office, but Kaabil had a shockingly very start. The movie showed growth in its collection on the following days, but it was way below the expectations.Kaabil has collected Rs 13.87 crore gross at the Chinese box office in three days. Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Kaabil is having a terrible run in #China… Continues to underperform… No improvement or growth in biz… Wed $ 0.48 mn, Thu $ 0.66 mn, Fri $ 0.69 mn. Total: $ 2 million [₹ 13.87 cr]. Includes previews held earlier.”last_img read more

first_imgA vendor attends to her daughter while waiting for customers beside an electoral poster in Bangkok on March 18, 2019, ahead of the March 24 general election. AFPIt’s election season in Thailand and a campaign truck is rolling at the crack of dawn through the streets of the northeastern town of Phimai, blaring the slogan “Vote Thaksin, Get Thaksin.”It’s a bit disconcerting, since the Thaksin everyone in Thailand knows is former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, ousted by a 2006 military coup and living in self-imposed exile since 2008 to avoid serving a prison term for a conviction on a conflict of interest charge.This small-town Thaksin, distributing campaign handbills as he walks ahead of the truck, is a 46-year-old schoolteacher.He happily explains that sharing his name with the 69-year-old former prime minister is no coincidence, and that he changed his former name – Veerawit Chuajunud – to Thaksin Chuajunud as a vote-getting tactic.Phimai, in Nakhon Ratchasima province, is in Thailand’s poor rural region known as Isan, the heartland of the neglected farmers and villagers who represent the original and still largely loyal base of the former prime minister, a billionaire now living in Dubai.”I want to grab the attention of the people, making sure that my name is easy to remember. I only have one to two months to campaign, so I decided to change my name to be symbolic,” said the candidate in Sunday’s general election.The name-changing tactic may be tricky, but it’s not insincere. Phimai’s Thaksin is running as a candidate for Pheu Chart, one of several small parties established by allies and supporters of the former prime minister.There is an established flagship pro-Thaksin party, Pheu Thai, but election laws established by the anti-Thaksin military government targeting the former leader’s political machine are aimed at keeping any large party from obtaining a legislative majority. So the pro-Thaksin strategy is to splinter the machine into separate parties that could unite forces after the election.Name-changing is a tactic to help overcome confusion over political brands, especially for the new, lesser-known satellite parties. It also helps to stand out in a large field of candidates. More than 11,000 are registered for Sunday’s vote, compared to just over 2,800 in the last election.Thaksin Chuajunud is one of 15 candidates from his party who made opportunistic name changes. Most took on the name “Thaksin,” but four adopted the name of Thaksin’s sister, Yingluck, who became prime minister in 2011 and was forced from office by a controversial court decision just before the military ousted her government in another coup. She also has faced court cases that supporters charge amount to political persecution, and likewise fled into exile.Phimai’s Thaksin is on fairly friendly ground as he introduces himself at a local market. It’s been more than a decade since Isan’s political hero, the former prime minister, even set foot on Thai soil, but he is not forgotten.”I wish he would come back. I wish that every day and every minute. I don’t know how and I have never really said this. I do miss him. I am concerned about him, and I quietly give him my support,” says farmer Pajaree Changkodpanao, wiping away tears.Pro-Thaksin parties, despite serious roadblocks put in their way by Thailand’s traditional conservative political establishment, have won every national election since 2001.Thaksin, who made his fortune in telecommunications, used his money to subsume rural and regional political power brokers into his own party, then once in power implemented generous and generally unprecedented social programs benefiting the rural poor and urban working class, cementing his relationship with a majority of the country’s voters.”No matter what anyone said about him, I always loved him since many years ago,” says 59-year-old Nuwate Jiamwong from Nonrung village, another farmer. “It’s fixed in my mind.”Thaksin’s populist policies, such as a universal health care scheme and generous farming subsidies, account for a good deal of his popularity in poor rural areas. They also show the people in those areas the gains the political process could bring them aside from the cash handouts they traditionally receive from vote-buyers on election eve.Virot Ali, a political science lecturer at Bangkok’s Thammasat University, says he believes people in the countryside still think of Thaksin as the main person who guided the economy in the interests of the rural sector, as well as gave them confidence that democracy could work to their benefit.Thaksin’s populist policies assured him large electoral majorities, but also alienated the country’s traditional power-holders – royalists, the military and their Bangkok middle-class supporters. The 2006 coup that ousted him, after accusations of abuse of power and disrespect toward the monarchy, set off a battle for power between his supporters and opponents that sparked sporadic mass street violence and triggered the army’s second coup in 2014.The anti-democratic measures still being taken by Thaksin’s opponents to thwart his political comeback – changes to the constitution that offset the direct election of legislators and limit the power of elected lawmakers – are a measure of what Thaksin’s supporters are up against.Phimai candidate Thaksin says he’s up for the challenge.”I know that changing my name does not mean that I will automatically win,” he says. “I still have to work hard, visiting and working continuously for the community.”last_img read more

first_imgNews | November 13, 2008 European Studies Say Agfa’s DX-S CR System Reduces X-Ray Dose November 14, 2008 – Agfa HealthCare said this week that two recent independent studies have confirmed that the company’s DX-S offline detector system delivers high quality diagnostic exposures with significantly reduced patient exposure dose. A study by the University Clinical Center of Giessen and Marburg in Germany evaluated the dose and quality performance of Agfa HealthCare’s DX-S system, compared to the performance of a 400 speed class screen/film system. The study involved 200 thoracic exposures from children. The second study, by the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany, covered larger children and adolescents and exposures using a chest phantom. The results were evaluated by five investigators. Both studies concluded that, with Agfa HealthCare’s DX-S system, the dose could be reduced by up to 50 percent, without reducing the diagnostic quality.For more information: www.agfa.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Edward Hospital & Health Services is a full-service, regional healthcare provider offering sophisticated medical specialties, located in west suburban Chicago.

The notification subtly vibrates the watch, indicating that the doctor has an impending appointment;Appointment information that is accessible within a notification or through the agenda, allowing the provider to review details such as the patient’s name, time of appointment, visit type, and reason for the visit;“I’m Running Late” pre-set messages that allow the doctor inform other staff members when they are running behind and how much longer they expect to be. This improves practice communication and enables the front desk to give patients a more accurate wait time estimate; andApple “Glances” that provide a quick overview of key practice metrics, including how many patients are scheduled throughout the day, how many patients are waiting to be seen, and which patients are currently waiting in an exam room.
