Tata Harrier SUV slated for December launch, here is all you need to know

first_imgTata Motors has been readying itself for one of its biggest ever and most awaited launch of the year, the Harrier SUV or the H5X as it was previously known. According to dealer sources, the Harrier will make its official production-spec debut during the first week of December. However, it is still a question mark on the price announcement as of yet.Tata officially started taking in bookings for the upcoming Harrier SUV a few weeks back. The SUV first made its Indian debut at the 2018 Auto Expo. The booking amount is Rs 30,000 and refundable. The bookings can also production-spec on the newly launched Tata Harrier’s website.The Tata Harrier has been close on the heels of becoming one of the most awaited cars this year since its Indian debut at the 2018 Auto Expo held in February 2018.The Harrier will be built on the Omega platform which is a derivative of the L550 platform from the stables of Jaguar Land Rover for the Discovery Sport. This means the Harrier is slated to use the parts bin of the Discovery Sport which includes floor panels, all-independent suspension, and steering gear. However, steel will aluminum to optimize cost.The Harrier is also slated to share the wheelbase from the Discovery Sport which is 2,741mm and will be 4×4 capable like the Discovery Sport and will come with a proper 4×4 drivetrain.The best part yet, Tata designers have stated that the final production model will be very much similar to the concept model. We can say this considering the teaser image of the Harrier SUV showed high-set headlamps with LED DRLs. Other styling similarities include wheel arches, front and rear armrests, slim headlamps which are in accordance with their Impact Design 2.0 language.advertisementThe Harrier is expected to be powered by a Kryotec, 140bhp, 2.0-litre 4-cylinder, turbo-diesel engine with a 4-wheel drive system which will be developed by Tata. The powertrain will be mated to a 6-speed manual or a Hyundai sourced 6-speed automatic. The engine will get multiple drive modes which are already available on Tata’s Revotron and Revotorq line of engines.Interior wise, the Harrier will feature front and rear AC vents, sunroof, touchscreen infotainment system, steering mounted controls, electric seats with memory function, parking sensors, and reverse camera.last_img read more

This year, the Global Citizen Festival will celebrate the achievements made toward ending extreme poverty, and provide world leaders with a clear and compelling mandate to accelerate progress on the issues of education, women’s equality, global health, and global partnerships to help end extreme poverty by 2030.“Since 1990, the proportion of people living in extreme poverty has been halved. We are working to see the end of extreme poverty in our lifetime,” said Hugh Evans, CEO, The Global Poverty Project. “We must continue to push our leaders to step up and commit to action in the areas we know are fundamental to ending extreme poverty. This is not just a concert – we are building a movement of yearlong action by thousands of citizens. World leaders respond when citizens call for change. The Global Citizen Festival is that call.”Kings of Leon expressed their commitment to the 2013 Global Citizen Festival, “We’re happy to take part in an amazing organization’s show that brings awareness to such an important global issue.”“I’m so proud to join these incredible artists as we come together through our music in support of The Global Poverty Project,” said Alicia Keys. “The number of people around the world living in extreme poverty is staggering.

Vedanta Ltd makes oil discovery in KG block

first_imgNew Delhi: Mining baron Anil Agarwal-led Vedanta Ltd Wednesday announced an oil discovery in its Krishna Godavari basin block in the Bay of Bengal. The block previously had a gas discovery in the very first well drilled. In a statement, Vedanta said “it has notified the Directorate General of Hydrocarbons and Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas of an oil discovery in the second exploratory well H2, located in the block KG-OSN-2009/3, Krishna-Godavari Basin, East Coast of India”. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalVedanta holds 100 per cent participating interest in the block. “Multiple reservoir zones were encountered in the well H2 within the Mesozoic sequence between the depths of 3,310 metres to 4,026 metres with hydrocarbon indications during drilling and downhole logging,” it said. The zone from 3,403 metres to 3,431 metres was tested through conventional well testing (Drill Stem Test) and flowed oil to the surface. “Further appraisal will be required to establish the size and commerciality of the oil discovery,” Vedanta said. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostThe first exploration well A3-2 drilled in the block was a gas discovery. “Evaluations are ongoing based on the results of the first well A3-2 and the second well H2 to finalise the forward programme,” it added. Cairn India, the company Vedanta bought and merged with itself, had in June 2010 won the KG-OSN-2009/3 block in the 8th round of New Exploration Licensing Policy (NELP). It had committed to drill six exploratory wells on the block. These were expandable to 10. The KG basin is a proven basin where there have been many hydrocarbon discoveries. The company acquired around 1,000 square kilometres of 3D seismic data based on which it drilled two wells. KG-OSN-2009/3 offshore block in the Bay of Bengal was originally spread over in an area of about 1,988 sq km which was later reduced to 1,298 sq km due to exclusion of area within firing range. It is located in the shallow waters of the Indian Ocean along the East coast of India, approximately 1.5 km from the Indian coastline.last_img read more

Nadal wins 9th Rome title

first_imgROME: Rafael Nadal is right back where he wants to be. After losing in the semifinals of three straight clay-court tournaments, Nadal dominated for stretches against his longtime rival, Novak Djokovic, in a 6-0, 4-6, 6-1 win Sunday for a record-extending ninth Italian Open title. It marked the first time in an Open Era-record 54 meetings, and in their 142nd set against each other, that Nadal won a set against Djokovic without conceding a game – otherwise known as a Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijijubagel. The timing for Nadal’s return to form could not have been more opportune, as he will seek a record-extending 12th title at the French Open starting next weekend. ”Winning a title is important but for me the most important thing is feel myself competitive, feel myself healthy,” Nadal said. ”Then with the feeling that I am improving. I know if I’m able to reach my level you can win, you can lose, but normally I’m going to have my chances, especially on this surface.” Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersTop-ranked Djokovic, meanwhile, appeared exhausted after spending more than 5 1/2 hours on court against Juan Martin del Potro and Diego Schwartzman the previous two days. Djokovic was also coming off the Madrid Open title last week. ”I don’t want to talk about fatigue or things like that,” Djokovic said. ”Rafa was simply too strong today.” In the women’s final earlier, Karolina Pliskova captured the biggest clay-court trophy of her career by beating Johanna Konta 6-3, 6-4. The Foro Italico crowd continually tried to encourage Djokovic with chants of ”Vai Nole!” – Go Nole! – but the top-ranked Serb struggled with his overhead and drop shots. Midway through the second set, Nadal chased down a lob with an over-the-shoulder shot and Djokovic’s ensuing overhead landed in the net to conclude a long point. Djokovic again netted an overhead in the next game and then kicked the ball in frustration when he missed a drop shot attempt late in the second. But Djokovic hung around in the second and converted his first set point when a looping forehand from Nadal sailed wide for his first break of the match. As he walked to his chair after winning the second set, Djokovic waved his arms to get the crowd behind him. However, Djokovic didn’t have much left in the tank. When Nadal pushed Djokovic deep into the corner in the opening game of the third set and Djokovic’s desperation lob sailed long to hand Nadal a break, Djokovic smashed his racket to the clay three times in frustration and received a warning from the chair umpire. Djokovic won only 29 percent of the points on his second serve and committed 39 unforced errors to Nadal’s 17. Also, Nadal won 23 of the 31 rallies with nine or more shots. It was his 81st tournament win and it takes him 34-33 ahead of Djokovic in Masters 1,000 Series titles. Victory is a boost before the French Open for Nadal, who was beaten by Djokovic in the Australian Open final in January, and had lost at the semi-final stage in his past four tournaments. Since 2005, Nadal has won at least one of the nine Masters 1,000 events in a season every year except 2015. Nadal and Djokovic will be the top two seeds in the second major of the year at Roland Garros later this month.last_img read more

UN official extols role of mother languages in spreading knowledge

“Mother languages, along with linguistic diversity, matter for the identity of individuals. As sources of creativity and vehicles for cultural expression, they are also important for the health of societies,” said Irina Bokova, the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), in a message to mark International Mother Language Day. This year’s Day focuses on the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for safeguarding and promoting languages and linguistic diversity. “These technologies are also a new frontier for promoting linguistic diversity. UNESCO is committed to promoting multilingualism on the Internet,” said Ms. Bokova. “Information and communication technologies can be especially useful in promoting mother languages. We must harness the power of progress to protect diverse visions of the world and to promote all sources of knowledge and forms of expression. These are the threads that weave the tapestry of humanity’s story,” she added. Half of the world’s 6,000 languages are endangered, according to UNESCO. At its Paris headquarters today, the agency is holding an information meeting and debate entitled “Projects on Linguistic Diversity and New Technologies.” Linguists, representatives to UNESCO, officials from International Organisation of La Francophonie and the Latin Union will report on the latest updates of the Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger, as well as the first results of a UNESCO project that analyses linguistic trends since the 1950s. Debates on bilingual education and the new technologies are also on the agenda. This year, UNESCO will launch a campaign via the social media Twitter and Facebook to encourage users to share stories, photographs and video illustrating the potential of new technologies for the promotion of linguistic diversity. International Mother Language Day, celebrated every year since 2000 on 21 February, aims to raise awareness of the importance of cultural and linguistic diversity and of multilingual education. 21 February 2011The head of the United Nations agency tasked with preserving the world’s cultural heritage and promoting education today highlighted the importance of mother languages, stressing their role as sources of human knowledge and creativity, and vehicles of cultural expression. read more

Both had been granted visas for the trip, perhaps telling British embassy  officials in Moscow they were visiting London to see friends or even attend a Premier League football match. When Aeroflot flight SU2588 touched down at Gatwick Airport on the afternoon of Friday, March 2, there was nothing particularly remarkable about the two middle-aged Russian men disembarking together. In reality the pair, travelling under aliases, were from Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency. And they had a much more sinister… Wearing jeans, trainers and Puffa jackets, the pair passed easily through immigration and passport control, blending in with those heading to London to see the sights or go shopping. read more

Four die after rare meningitis outbreak in US

first_imgAN OUTBREAK OF a rare and deadly form of meningitis has hospitalised 26 people and killed four people across five states  in America.All the cases involved patients who received steroid injections.Eighteen of the cases are in Tennessee where a Nashville clinic received the largest shipment of the steroid suspected in the outbreak. The drug was made by a specialty pharmacy in Massachusetts. It has since issued a recall.Three cases have been reported in Virginia, two in Maryland, two in Florida and one in North Carolina. Two of the deaths were in Tennessee; Virginia and Maryland had one each, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention said.More new cases are almost certain to appear in the coming days, said Tennessee Department of Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner. Cases in that state began in July and five new cases were confirmed over the past 24 hours, he said Wednesday.Investigators have been looking into at least three different products used for the back injections that could have been tainted by the fungus that appears to be behind the illnesses. None of the products have been ruled out. However, the primary suspicion is on steroid medication, which is commonly used for back pain.The Food and Drug Administration identified the maker of the steroid as the New England Compounding Center, a specialty pharmacy in Framingham. Last week, the company issued a recall of three lots of the steroid. Company officials could not be immediately reached Wednesday afternoon by telephone; the company’s website was unavailable.last_img read more

Abbott compares Gillards super reforms to Cyprus bailout

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has compared the Government’s super reforms to the actions of the Cypriot government in raiding personal bank accounts to fund a bailout. Prime Minister Julia Gillard commented on the government’s announcement last week that a 15 per cent tax on superannuation earnings over $100,000 will come into affect, which is predicted to affect 16,000 high-income earners. Mr Abbott defended linking the super changes to Cyprus, saying superannuation is not the right of the government. “It’s very important that all governments understand that money in superannuation accounts doesn’t belong to the government, it belongs to the people,” he told reporters in Sydney on Sunday. When asked about Ms Gillard’s comment that his link to Cyprus was a “crazy statement,” Mr Abbott went on the offensive. “The prime minister shouldn’t use an overseas trip to make domestic political comments,” he said. “The extreme language of the prime minister is unworthy of that great office.” The Prime Minister was In China to discuss military collaboration and attend a business forum.last_img read more

Report links rash of abuse state adoption policy flaws

first_imgA new state report blames shortcomings in state policy for a recent rash of severe abuse of adopted children, including lack of oversight of private adoption agencies, inadequate safety nets for catching potential abuse, and urgency to place the state’s displaced and orphaned children in permanent homes.The report, released Monday by the Severe Abuse of Adopted Children Committee, recommends a list of changes to improve the state’s adoption system and protect children.Twenty-eight committee members from the public and private adoption and child welfare fields reviewed 15 cases of severe abuse and neglect of adopted children, including at least one in Clark County. The abuse occurred between 2009 and 2011.They examined gaps in the state system and looked at best practices to come up with the recommendations. Among the proposed changes:• Enact regulations to provide oversight of private adoption;• Track failed adoptions, primarily when a child is returned to the state;• Increase required qualifications for social workers who evaluate the suitability of a home;• Enhance minimum requirements for home evaluation before and after an adoption is finalized; and• Establish an internal panel to make adoption decisions for children in state care.Some of the changes would require action by the state Legislature. Others, such as the internal work group, are already under way, said Denise Revels Robinson, assistant secretary of the state Children’s Administration.The report was spurred by the Office of the Family and Children’s Ombudsman 2011 Annual Report, which documented an “alarming cluster of cases of severe child abuse and neglect” in adoptive homes.last_img read more

DICJ grants Canidrome 60day deadline extension to relocate greyhounds to new Taipa

first_img 300-seat cap revealed for 2019 Asian Gaming Power 50 Gala Dinner at Galaxy Macau DICJ says more spot checks to come amid Macau junket crackdown Load More RelatedPosts Macau gaming regulator, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), has granted the operators of the shuttered Canidrome dog racing track, Macao (Yut Yuen) Canidrome Co Ltd, a 60-day extension to relocate 533 former racing greyhounds.The extension follows a joint announcement last Friday by Macau (Yat Yuen) Canidrome Co Ltd and animal welfare organization Anima regarding plans by Yat Yuen to rent a series of properties in Sac On in Taipa in which to house the dogs until they can be rehomed. Solving the problem In a Tuesday statement, the DICJ said it has “considered the latest proposal feasible in terms of ensuring animal welfare in accordance with the Animal Protection Law. The Bureau’s decision to approve the deadline extension took into account the need to revamp the private properties included in the plan, before the greyhound dogs could be rehomed there.“The decision additionally took into consideration a long-term plan to shelter the concerned animals, previously proposed by the company and an animal welfare group. Such plan proposes the rezoning of a private plot in Pac On in order for the land to be used for a dog shelter for animals waiting to be rehomed. Such plan would involve a zoning change that must be approved by the relevant authorities.”Under the terms of the deadline extension, Yat Yuen must now relocate the greyhounds to the new facility by 29 September 2018. Failure to comply could see fines of up to MOP$53 million imposed.Despite granting the extension, the Macau government revealed that it has yet to receive any application request for a zoning change for the Pac On site.The recent closure of the Canidrome follows an ultimatum from the government in 2016 that the facility must either shut down or relocate by 20 July 2018 and that it needed to vastly improve its animal welfare standards should it choose to continue operations at a new location. Macau (Yat Yuen) Canidrome Co Ltd’s owner, SJM Co-Chairman and Executive Director Angela Leong, confirmed in January this year that the venue would close down permanently.last_img read more
