As a fan, I want to see passion in the performers and honestly when Mahal cut that promo on Talking Smack prior to winning the no.1 Contendership, I could tell there was a fire under him I hadnt seen in a performer in a while. He has worked his butt off to get better and not bitter from his release. Is this title run primarily due to their partnership in India? Probably but it shouldnt diminish how hard Mahal has worked to get back in the company and get to the top spot. I am 100 percent rooting for the Maharaja! is featuring an interview with new WWE Champion Jinder Mahal where he talks about his release from the company back in 2014 and beating Randy Orton at Backlash two weeks ago to become the new WWE Champion.On his release from WWE back in the summer of 2014:“You cannot become complacent or comfortable. You can’t become lazy. Being released was one of the best things that ever happened to me. It sparked my passion and forced me to work harder. To become the WWE champion, you need confidence in yourself, in your ability. You have to have confidence when you speak. When you start to look backward, that’s when the confidence begins to weaken. That’s not me. Not anymore.”On 3MB being a creative “mistake” and his post-WWE life:“Lost my motivation. I was selling real estate on the side, and thought that if it doesn’t work out, I could just do that if I want to.”On transforming his body over the years and being tested: “When I train hard, I look better. I see the way I look on TV or in the mirror, and it gives me confidence. It translates into the ring. I have more confidence and can be more aggressive. If you saw me from a few years ago, the confidence level is night and day, and that’s because of the way I look. I’ve been tested plenty, and never failed one.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipInternational Superstar Shake-up Dates ConfirmedVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:44/Current Time 0:03Loaded: 96.54%0:03Remaining Time -0:41 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

UD Group expanding metals trade counter to bleak outlook in market

first_imgAs a global rout in commodities drives metals traders to close up shop or lay off staff, Indian-owned industrial metals firm UD Group is setting out expansion plans, boosting staff and moving into more countries.The Singapore-based firm, which has a metals trading arm as well as mining, industrial and renewable units, recently opened an office in Beijing to grow in North Asia and is set to buy a small Swiss trading house, said Chairman Prateek Gupta.He says a strong balance sheet is giving it the comfort to take a counter-cyclical bet, and grow as others contract.”People ask us, ‘Are you guys crazy, you want to step into China now when everyone is getting out?’ I say, that’s exactly why I want to get in,” Gupta, a third-generation of the family-owned firm, told Reuters.The Swiss purchase, which is in its final stages, will include 20 staff and seven senior traders, he said, helping to extend the group’s reach into Europe, Russia and Africa, as it looks to grow from 250 people to 400 in the next two years.”We get access to teams and other commodities, like aluminium, tin, lead and zinc and some ferro alloys,” he said. “That gives us growth in those commodities. They need additional depth of balance sheet.”UD’s expansion comes as trading houses worldwide are facing the worst commodities downturn in a decade and as more banks ditch the sector. U.S. investment bank Morgan Stanley this week said it was closing its base metals trading business.Gupta said UD has avoided some of the pitfalls faced by rivals as it has maintained a large capital base and lower levels of borrowings, given the lower debt tolerance of banks in India where it has its roots.At the same time, it has grown big enough to attract larger credit lines from banks elsewhere including in Asia, which are used primarily for working capital as it offers its balance sheet to customers.”None of the metal market industry can survive without credit… That’s where our model offers a better role. We offer credit back up.”UD also takes part in more downstream activities than traditional commodity trade houses, Gupta said, helping to manage risk as it offers an exit strategy in the event of default, where UD will buy its customers’ products and sell them.The firm’s Bombay stock exchange-listed unit, Ushdev International, is capitalised at $124 million and accounted for around a third of overall group business last year. Shares have fallen by more than a quarter this year, mirroring the downswing in metals.last_img read more

African American Civil War Memorial Seeks Upgrade

first_imgTwo members of U.S. Congress are among the supporters of a museum director’s campaign to upgrade a District of Columbia memorial-museum complex that highlights the contributions of Black soldiers.African America Civil War Memorial. The African American Civil War Memorial, at the corner of Vermont Avenue and U Street NW in Washington, D.C., commemorates the service of 209,145 African-American soldiers and sailors who fought for the Union in the American Civil War. The sculpture The Spirit of Freedom, by Ed Hamilton of Louisville, Kentucky, was commissioned by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and completed in 1997.The director of the African American Civil War Museum, former D.C. Council member Frank Smith, wants to set up a visitor’s center and a park ranger post for the memorial that is located in the U Street corridor and across the street from the museum. He solicited the assistance of D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) and U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and got it.On Dec. 18, 2015, in a letter jointly written by Norton and Lewis, they encouraged the director of the National Park Service (NPS), Jonathan B. Jarvis, to consider Smith’s proposal. “We write to respectfully request that the Department of Interior and the National Park Service investigate the feasibility of establishing a visitor’s center and assigning a park ranger permanently to the African American Civil War Memorial in the District of Columbia,” the letter said. “. . . While we understand that NPS has suffered some budgetary cutbacks in recent years, we believe this memorial needs a permanent ranger – or a student ranger or seasonal employees for high visitation months – who can share the site’s rich history with guests.”The letter points out that the museum will be expanding this year with an additional 14,000 square feet of space and a full-time ranger would be key to the site’s viability. The letter also noted that the nation “is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the passage of the 13th Amendment this year and the National Museum of African American History and Culture will open [later] this year.”The African American Civil War Memorial Freedom Foundation was incorporated in 1992 to tell the story about the United States Colored Troops that fought on the side of the Union during the Civil War. The memorial was dedicated in July 1998 under Smith’s leadership and included former Joint Chief of Staff Chairman Colin Powell at the ceremony.The sculpture portrays uniformed soldiers and a sailor at a height of 10 feet with a family depicted on the back of the sculpture, and is situated in the center of a granite-paved plaza, encircled on three sides by the Wall of Honor. The wall lists the names of 209,145 Black soldiers from the Bureau of United States Colored Troops at the National Archive on 166 burnished stainless steel plaques arranged by regiment. The leaders of the museum estimate that more than 200,000 people visit the site yearly.Smith is encouraging friends and supporters of the museum to communicate with President Obama regarding the matter. “The year 2016 will mark the 8th and final year of your presidency and the Department of Interior/National Park Service hasn’t still opened a visitor’s center or stationed a National Park ranger at the African American Civil War Memorial,” Smith said in a letter to Obama. “Please correct this great wrong before you leave office.”last_img read more

How the Contraceptive Equity Act Will Work in Maryland

first_imgGov. Larry Hogan, center, with supporters signing one of 196 bills into law. (Photo courtesy of the Executive of the Governor)On Tuesday, Gov. Larry Hogan signed 196 bills into law. One of those was the Contraceptive Equity Act, which will make birth control more affordable and accessible to Maryland residents.Maryland’s insurance companies will now cover all forms of over-the-counter birth control and male vasectomies. Along with reducing the cost of contraception by removing copayments, the act makes it easier to obtain contraception as well. Women can now receive their birth control for up to six months at a time, and a prescription is no longer necessary to receive over the counter birth control. The bill also removed preapproval requirements for long-term reversible contraception including the implant and the intrauterine device (IUD).The bill, which will go into effect in January 2018, expands on the policies in the Affordable Care Act which require insurance companies nationwide to offer at least one type of birth control without a co-payment. The Contraceptive Equity Act goes even further by requiring all forms of birth control to be covered solely by insurance.Reproductive rights are often seen as a women’s issue, but the measure allows men to be more involved in family planning by removing the copayment for male vasectomies.“For the first time ever, men are included in these contraception laws,” said Karen J. Nelson, president and CEO Planned Parenthood of Maryland. “The modern guy knows that he has a role in reproductive rights.”Maryland’s bill also covers the morning-after pill, making Maryland the first state to require insurance companies to include emergency contraception. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 2006 and 2010 about one in nine sexually experienced women between the ages of 15 and 44 have used emergency contraception. Rather than paying $25 to $60, women can now get Plan B without a prescription or a copayment.While residents won’t pay for birth control out of their own pockets, the contraceptives are not entirely free. Some worry that insurance companies will raise their rates to compensate for the lack of copayments.Brian Griffiths, co-founder of the conservative network Maryland Red and co-host of Red Maryland Radio said he is worried about the economic impact of this decision. “It’s going to drive the cost of insurance up. Health insurance is already not affordable,” said Griffiths.Griffiths was also concerned about the bill conflicting with conservative values. He suggested that people who are not sexually active or do not believe in contraception will be at an “economic disadvantage” because they are paying higher insurance rates for something that they don’t believe in. Religious organizations are exempt from including these policies in their employee insurance plans.The bill will apply to all insurance plans statewide including Care First Blue Shield, a company with about 2.1 million consumers. The policies will also be enforced for Medicaid, a federal state insurance program for low-income citizens.“The state of Maryland is going to protect women and make sure residents in this area will have access to health care,” said Nelson.last_img read more

Steer Wearable Literally Shocks Drowsy Drivers

first_img Drowsy driving kills.Which is why Latvian design studio Creative Mode invented Steer, a wearable device aimed at keeping motorists awake and alert.The bracelet, worn on the upper forearm, analyzes heart rate and skin conductance. If either drops below a certain level, Steer shocks you back into consciousness.Dazed, lethargic drivers claimed more than 840 lives in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which estimated 83,000 drowsy driving-related crashes between 2005 and 2009.Most people have experienced bouts of “micro-sleep”—drooping eyes, head nodding, even unconsciousness that can last up to 30 seconds, during which you fail to respond to environmental sensors.via Creative ModeBut while it’s one thing to doze off at your desk or in a dark movie theater, until fully autonomous vehicles start chauffeuring folks around, there is no time for a catnap behind the wheel.Steer, however, helps curb micro-sleep.Strap on the accessory to verify resting heart rate and skin conductance, then wear it while driving to determine potentially harmful changes.If your pulse decreases by ten units, for example, Steer sends out a strong vibration and shines a yellow light. Drop another three units, and you’ll receive a “gentle” electric shock.via Creative ModeThe stimulation, according to Creative Mode, boosts neurotransmitters serotonin, noradrenaline, and cortisol, and decreases the “sleeping hormone” melatonin.“These changes will make you feel fresher and less drowsy and will return your heart rate to normal,” the firm’s Kickstarter campaign said.Promising a safer, more effective, and more reliable remedy than traditional quick fixes like energy drinks, coffee, loud music, or smoking, Steer—made from durable and hypoallergenic plastic—has “no negative effect on your health.”Pre-order the bracelet now for an early-bird price of €99 ($116); snag extra for friends or family with the twin pack (€198/$231), trio pack (€299/$349), or four-device family pack (€380/$444).Production is expected in September and October, ahead of a November rollout to backers.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Tiny Train Model May be Worlds Smallest w Video

first_imgAt first, Smith ran into friction problems on the small scale when trying to miniaturize the geared mechanism he used for larger models. After trial and error, he discovered that he could make an oval tube attached to the rotating shaft of a miniature geared motor. To make the train cars, he simply cut “teeth” into the edge of the tube that would poke just above the surface of the layout. Then he colored the train cars with a Sharpie. He made the layout itself completely out of extremely thin styrene, and covered the mountain with a thin lumpy layer of Squadron putty to make a forest. He made the buildings out of bits of 0.01 x 0.02-inch strips of styrene, and colored everything with Sharpies. At first, Smith thought about illuminating some of the buildings, but found that even the tiniest LED or fiber optics would be much too bulky. He still plans to make a single spotlight to hang overhead, to make it easier to see everything. Because the train is so small, even making the video was a major challenge to shoot. Although Smith used a macro lens, the camera would not focus close enough to get a good view; he had to blow it up 400% in post-production to make a decent-sized (yet grainy) image.Smith is making no promises that the tiny train layout is made precisely to scale. “This new layout was entirely eyeballed as well, with no real intent to precisely represent an N scale layout in Z scale; it’s only N scale by virtue of its overall dimensions,” he explained. “So if anyone measures the passenger cars running on it and finds they’re exactly the right size, I’ll most certainly faint dead away.”More information: http://jamesriverbranch.netvia: Telegraph© 2009 David Smith holds the tiny train he created, which has a scale of 1:35,200. Image Credit: David Smith. China develops magnetic levitation train Smith, who is a business web developer from New Jersey, has been working on the train model since 2007, spending about $11 on the project. As Smith explains, the train is a model within a model, as it appears in the window of one of the stores in his Z scale model railroad town (1:220 scale), the fictitious James River Branch on the Reading Railroad.

Explore furthercenter_img ( — David Smith, who has been building model railroads since 1965, has always had a preference for the smaller scale train models. His most recent project is a five-car train that runs through a scene of mountains, a tunnel, trees, buildings, and a cloud-studded sky – the whole thing measuring just 0.125 x 0.2 inches (0.3 x 0.5 cm). The train’s modeling scale is 1:35,200. Citation: Tiny Train Model May be World’s Smallest (w/ Video) (2009, October 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from This document is subject to copyright.

Yesteryears gloryBollywood diaries that never made it to bestseller list

first_imgThe literary space has seen a rising tide of Bollywood celebrities – from Karan Johar to Rishi Kapoor – turning towards memoirs and autobiographies in recent years, but books by their predecessors are striking in that they focussed on substance, rather than mere controversies.A look at the list of all major books by celebrities that have fast climbed the bestseller charts throws up an even larger list of controversies that were spun around the time of their launches and which were, in fact, the driving factor for much of their sales. The “Ajay Devgun-Kajol-Karan Johar triangle”, which was largely forgotten, came back to make headlines soon before the launch of Johar’s “An Unsuitable Boy”. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”I am ashamed to say it, but I actually ‘bought’ that award,” Rishi Kapoor wrote in his recent memoir “Khullam Khulla”, referring to his Best Actor trophy in 1974 for Bobby. Shatrughan Sinha, too, created quite a buzz regarding a baharwali (an extramarital-affair), about whom he stays “quiet” in his biography “Anything But Khamosh”.However, these recent examples are not the only literary offerings that have come from the cine world, which has actually set high benchmarks for biographical writings in the past – but never made it to the bestseller lists. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIn early 2010 or 11, Udayan Mitra, Publisher-Literary of HarperCollins India, who was then working with Penguin India, visited the residence of the iconic bollywood actor Dev Anand. The publisher had signed a book deal with the actor and Mitra was there to discuss the progress of the book. Assuming that he would have to convey all the necessary guidelines to his secretary, Mitra met with one of the greatest shocks of his life when Dev Anand presented a completely hand-written 600-page manuscript to him. The result? “Romancing with Life”, one of the first-ever full-fledged memoirs by a leading Bollywood star. In the book, Dev Anand tells his remarkable life story like only he can. Here are tales from Dev’s youth in 1930s Gurdaspur and Lahore; his years of struggle in 1940s Bombay; his friendship with Guru Dutt and his doomed romance with Suraiya; his marriage to co-star Kalpana Kartik; his relationships with his brothers Chetan and Vijay Anand, with SD and RD Burman, with contemporaries Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor – both of whom he was very close to – and with heroines like Geeta Bali, Madhubala and Meena Kumari.”Maybe the celebrity memoirs today lack a personal touch. Most of these are also written with a co-author, who actually does most of the writing while the celebrity only narrates the stories of his life. It doesn’t mean that all memoirs today are bad, but there’s something missing in some of them,” said Mitra.Another book that comes to mind is “Speaking of Films,” which brings together some of Satyajit Ray’s most memorable writings on films and filmmaking. With the masterly precision and clarity that characterise his films, Ray discusses a wide array of subjects – the structure and language of cinema, with special reference to his adaptations of Tagore and Bibhuti Bhushan Bandopadhyay, the appropriate use of background music and dialogue in films, the relationship between a filmmaker and a film critic, and important developments in cinema such as the advent of sound and colour.One particular autobiography that aspiring writers from the film industry may consider reading before setting on the journey of penning their own book is “Dilip Kumar – The Substance and the Shadow”, the autobiography of the legendary actor. In the book, the actor candidly recounts his interactions and relationships with a wide variety of people not only from his family and the film fraternity but also from other walks of life, including politicians. While seeking to set the record straight, as he feels that a lot of what has been written about him so far is “full of distortions and misinformation”, he narrates, in graphic detail, how he got married to Saira Banu, all of which reads like a fairy tale.For a more recent example, one may turn towards “And Then One Day” by Naseeruddin Shah. It is a rare memoir brimming with substance and honesty. He makes no effort whatsoever even to hide his trysts with women, dope or smoking! In his brilliantly argued personal perspective of the megastar, he also narrates his dislike for masala movies. The chapters based on his love for cinema and theatre are so full of life that one is often lured to assume it is a kind of conversation, as if Shah has been narrating the story himself.ianslast_img read more

Meet Dani Goot the trans woman behind Queer Wave Coffee

first_imgIssues in the industryShe volunteered at the Specialty Coffee Association, which she held off doing for years because it felt too much like a ‘boy’s club.’ However, during her time there, she was told to keep quiet about the organization hosting three of its tournaments in anti-LGBTI Dubai. Being asked not to ‘air dirty laundry’ about these problematic issues led her to leave the organization.‘I’m not the kind of person that keeps their mouth shut when there’s injustice,’ she says. ‘Patriarchy, antiquated business practices, and politics are what keep us from moving forward as an industry.’Now, Goot is on the leadership team of #CoffeeToo, a movement to end sexual harassment in the coffee industry, founded by industry veteran Molly Flynn.‘We’re helping women and marginalized people to have resources,’ Goot says of #CoffeeToo.Supporting Queer Wave CoffeeThe name Queer Wave Coffee wasn’t Goot’s originally. She saw someone else write it down once, and with their permission, began to use the name as well.Goot started to use the name as a hashtag on Instagram, and it soon expanded to create a support community.As part of this community, Goot, in collaboration with other LGBTI people in the industry, designed t-shirts and sweatshirts. All profits from them go to help Queer Coffee, another LGBTI community for those in the industry, host their events.Goot’s partner, Ana, modeling a QWC sweatshirt.Goot stresses that the QWC name and logo is open for anyone to use, as long as they’re not profiting off it.‘The name doesn’t belong to me, it belongs to everyone,’ she says.‘Our community really comes together to support each other,’ she says. ‘People fall in love with coffee and that passion is a catalyst for change.’Goot hopes that the message of QWC sticks on a broader level than just within the coffee industry.‘People always think of my thinking as super radical, but like, how is helping people radical?’ Goot says.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) GAYSTARNEWS- Goot has been in the coffee industry since 1993. ‘It’s really the only career I’ve ever had,’ she says.Back then, Goot identified as cis male and recalls that her only options were to get a job or join the military. She chose the former and started to work at a roastery. About six months in, she really got into the job, especially the production side of it.When Goot was presenting male, she still always promoted female coffee roasters.Goot’s transition‘I’ve always known I was different from other dudes,’ Goot, who started to medically transition about a year ago, recalls. Growing up, Goot related to women more than she did to other guys.However, it wasn’t until Goot became a step parent, and then a biological parent, that she truly realized her gender identity.One of Goot’s children identified as gender-nonconforming at the age of 2 and a half. The other was assigned male at birth, but identifies on the femme side of the spectrum.‘I pretty much learned from them,’ Goot says. ‘Both of them were the ones that showed me the way to understanding myself better.’Dani GootGoot’s kids.
