Nirav Modi extradition CBI team likely to leave for London

first_imgNew Delhi: A CBI team is likely to leave for London to assist local authorities in the extradition case of fugitive diamantaire Nirav Modi whose bail plea will come for hearing before a court there on Friday, officials said. A Joint Director-level officer has been deputed to leave for London Wednesday with necessary documents, they said. The 48-year old diamantaire is accused of swindling over 2 billion USD from state-run Punjab National Bank in collusion with his uncle Mehul Choksi.

Nirav Modi was later arrested on the basis of the extradition request of India and a Red Corner notice issued against him on the request of the CBI last year. He was produced before the Westminster Magistrates’ Court last week, wherein he contested his extradition to India. District Judge Marie Mallon denied bail to Modi and remanded him in custody till March 29, saying there was substantial grounds to believe that he would fail to surrender if granted bail. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid had certified India’s extradition request for the fugitive diamantaire earlier this month, triggering the legal process kick-started with the issuance of a warrant. The news of the certification of India’s request came after Modi was tracked down to a three-bedroom flat in the Centre Point tower block of luxury apartments in West End of London. He is believed to have arrived in London last year and was able to travel in and out of Britain at least four times since his passport was cancelled by the Indian authorities in February 2018. Modi was also reportedly living in the heart of the city above his jewellery boutique Nirav Modi on Old Bond Street, which has since closed down. He is now believed to be running a new business which describes itself on the UK’s Companies House register as a wholesale trader and retailer of watches and jewellery in specialised stores.last_img read more

SC asks EC to decide by May 6 complaints against PM Modi

first_imgNEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Thursday directed the Election Commission to decide by May 6 nine complaints of the Congress party alleging MCC violations by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah.The poll panel told a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi that it has already decided on two out of the 11 complaints which were filed by the Congress party against Modi and Shah for alleged violation of the Model Code of Conduct. Senior advocate, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for Congress Lok Sabha MP Sushmita Dev, who has filed a petition in the apex court on the issue, said that they had given 11 representations to EC against the duo, but it has decided on only two. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework”The Election Commission shall decide the remaining representations of the petitioners before we hear the matter again on Monday (May 6),” said the bench also comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna. The poll panel has given a clean chit to PM Modi for three of his speeches. In her plea, Dev has alleged that “inaction” by EC on complaints against top BJP leaders was “a sign of invidious discrimination” as also “arbitrary, capricious and impermissible” as it was destructive of the integrity of the electoral process. It has been alleged that BJP leaders have been violating MCC during the last four weeks and the EC has not taken any decisions on as many as 40 complaints of Congress party. In a related development, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi’s recent remarks, tagging BJP chief Amit Shah a murder-accused at an election campaign, was not a violation of Model Code of Conduct (MCC), the Election Commission said here on Thursday.

Varoufakis looking for plan to bridge gap after Schaeuble talks

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis pledged to present to the next Eurogroup a roadmap that will show how Greece could transition from its current bailout to a new agreement, which he believes can be agreed by the end of May.Mr Varoufakis made the pledge at a meeting with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble in Berlin this week. The two ministers appeared far apart on their views about how Greece’s relationship with its lenders should evolve. Schaeuble insisted that Athens should complete its current bailout and continue working with the troika.The Greek finance minister said the government does not want to borrow more money but needs some time that would allow it to negotiate with its eurozone partners to reach a new “contract.”“We didn’t discuss Greece’s debt schedule for repayments, we didn’t discuss a haircut,” said Varoufakis, who insisted that the country would avoid a default. “We set the scene for deliberations that will lead to an approach which will put an end to this seemingly never-ending crisis.”Varoufakis also made reference to the rise of Golden Dawn in Greece during the economic crisis and called on Germany, with its own haunting experience of Nazism, to help combat this threat.“When I return home tonight I shall find myself in a parliament in which the third-largest party is not a neo-Nazi party, it is a Nazi party,” he said. “We need the people of Germany on our side. We need the people of Germany to help us in the struggle against misanthropy.”However, Schaeuble insisted that Greece needs to stick with the reforms agreed by the previous government, regardless of the fact that the new coalition has a mandate to pursue a different agenda.“I told my colleague that we respect the Greek electorate’s will but that in every European Union member state the electoral will of voters in all other countries also has to be respected,” Schaeuble said. “The reasons for the difficult path that Greece must follow lie in Greece, not in Europe.”The German finance minister also said that he was not in favour of some of the government’s attempts to roll back previous reforms.“I couldn’t hide my scepticism in the conversation that some measures announced by the new government don’t necessarily go in the right direction in our opinion,” he said.Sources told Kathimerini that Berlin is adamant that the International Monetary Fund needs to maintain a monitoring role in Greece. IMF spokesman Gerry Rice said on Thursday that a meeting between Varoufakis and Fund official Poul Thomsen over the weekend had not involved a detailed discussion and that the Washington-based organization is waiting for the Greek government to present its positions.Addressing coalition MPs in Athens for the first time since the January 25 elections, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras sought to outline the strategy his government will follow in negotiations with the country’s creditors.“Greek democracy doesn’t want to blackmail or threaten anyone,” he said. “It also won’t be threatened by anyone, because democracy in Europe cannot be blackmailed,” he added.The premier reiterated his intention to “negotiate hard” and to “put a definitive end to the troika and its policies.”He stressed that his government would honour its pre-election commitments, noting that it was a duty to “not allow citizens to be cheated again.” “We are a sovereign state, we have a democracy, we have an agreement with our people and we will honour it,” he said.As for the prospect of an agreement with creditors, Tsipras said his government had presented its proposals and was awaiting those of its partners. He added that the new Greek government respected European Union rules stipulating balanced budgets, noting however that “austerity is not an EU founding principle.”The government guaranteed the country’s “course in Europe” and deposits in banks which are “absolutely safe,” he added.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Varoufakis proud to be Australian

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram One thing is for certain, the former Greek finance minister knows how to work a crowd.In his appearance last Saturday at Melbourne’s Athenaeum Theatre as part of The Wheeler Centre’s Interrobang: Festival of Questions, Yanis Varoufakis stood before the packed venue with his Australian passport in hand. Having lectured in economics at Sydney University in the 1990s, he made it clear to all that he was proud to be affiliated with Down Under. He also spoke about the recent appointment of Malcolm Turnbull as the Australian prime minister, and said he was extremely impressed with what he had seen of his efforts so far, and believes Mr Turnbull has the ability to make a real difference.Unsurprisingly, a large portion of the segment was dedicated to the Greek economic crisis and state of affairs, during which Mr Varoufakis controversially referred to the efforts of the Europeans to save Greece from bankruptcy as an “economic Gallipoli” on par with the failed Gallipoli campaign of World War I.In an interview with The Australian, he warned that if European institutions don’t quickly address issues such as public debt, under-investment and rising poverty, the eurozone could face a “Soviet-style break-up”. Teamed up with journalist Mary Kostakidis, it was clear the former finance minister was the star attraction, speaking for more than 40 minutes in response to questions sent in by the public.last_img read more

Survey Tablet Owners Spend 50 Percent More Time Reading Magazines

first_imgConducted by the Harrison Group, the survey included responses from 1,816 U.S. residents aged 18 to 64—some being tablet/e-reader owners, some not. The survey was conducted online between September 17 and September 23. Consumers who own tablets and other e-readers generally spend 50 percent more time reading magazines (presumably on those devices) than consumers who do not own those devices, according to the results of a survey released this week from market research firm the Harrison Group, digital magazine vendor Zinio and Qualcomm, a mobile device display manufacturer.Also according to the survey, more than 80 percent of tablet and e-reader owners indicted that they are comfortable using digital payment systems that debit accounts automatically for subscriptions to content. It says roughly one in four tablet owners and one in three e-reader owners prefer purchasing single copies of publications while 15 percent of tablet owners and 13 percent of e-reader users prefer a pre-payment option. The survey says more than 15 percent of tablet and e-reader owners prefer the “traditional subscriber model of purchasing content for a set amount of time.”According to Harrison Group vice chairman Jim Taylor, results of the survey indicate that “tablet-based devices and e-readers have already become critical components of the personal technology suite.”Meanwhile, the survey says the majority of consumers (73 percent) maintain that the content they purchase once should be available to them for reading across multiple devices.last_img read more

first_imgEvery year we celebrate International Tiger Day on 29 July. The main objective of this day is to raise awareness about the declining numbers of big cats and to promote the work of their conservation. The International Tiger Day was first established in 2010 at Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit in Russia which is also known as Global Tiger Day. A hundred years back, there were less than 1,00,000 tigers in Asia. Today, the figure has dropped radically to 3,000 in the wild.

The Future of Marvels Stars Possible New Arrivals More MCU News

first_img The fourth (and probably final) Avengers movie is wrapping up. Every week, we hear about another actor finishing their final scenes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s a strange time for Marvel Studios’ 10-year-old franchise. Though it’s grown and expanded since the solo superhero films of phase one, it’s always been anchored by those six original Avengers. After next year, that’s changing. The actors who play those superheroes are exiting the franchise as their contracts end. New characters have been introduced to take their place, but it’ll sure be strange not having Captain America, Iron Man and Thor around. On the bright side, their exit from the MCU might not be forever. At least as far as one actor is concernedChris Hemsworth spoke to USA Today about the upcoming movies where he confirmed that yes, his contract is up. As things stand right now, he’s walking away from the character and that’s that. “Contractually, right now — yeah, this is it. I’m done. I won’t be playing the character again,” he said. “It’s sort of a scary thought. This really seemed like this never-ending thing. And now it’s potentially finishing.”Despite contractually being done with the character, it sounds like Hemsworth isn’t quite ready to leave Thor behind completely. After last November’s Thor: Ragnarok marked a huge evolution of the character, Hemsworth thinks there’s more to explore. Hemsworth celebrated New Year’s Eve with Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, and the pair apparently discussed ideas for a forth Thor. (Thour?)“We gave cheers … a few times to Thor 3, but it also was like, ‘What could we do with four? We could do this and this.’ We were throwing ideas around,” Hemsworth said. “I felt like we re-invented him. There is a bigger platform now to continue if we want to.”He’s certainly right about that. Waititi used Ragnarok to explore the culture of Asgard. He made a superhero comedy about colonialism and how societies rewrite their own history. For all the funny Kiwi-accented characters, celebratory reunions with friends from work, and jokes about a naked Hulk, Waititi packed a real message into that movie. Thor had to confront some uncomfortable truths about his own family’s history, and it would be great to see how that experience has changed him. Hemsworth has brought up the idea to Kevin Feige, but he’s focused on the next two Avengers movies right now.“(Feige) said, ‘Look, we just have to concentrate on (Avengers) now. So who knows? There are 76 cast members in these two Avengers films. They will be the biggest films of all time, far bigger than my character. It’s a conversation for further down the road, if it was going to happen,” Hemsworth said. If a fourth Thor does happen, we’ll have to wait until after 2019 before we hear anything about it. Hopefully, it does though. Waititi definitely deserves to continue his story.Captain Universe on Avengers #6 cover. (Art by Dustin Weaver, via Marvel)Speaking of things happening after Infinity War, Marvel fans are wondering what the studio has planned beyond the battle with Thanos. The MCU has been building up to big fight ever since the mid-credits tease at the end of the first Avengers. Now, some think the franchise may have already laid the groundwork for what comes next. The speculation centers around Captain Marvel, which will premiere between Avengers: Infinity War and the still-untitled Avengers 4. Earlier this month, DeWanda Wise was cast in a co-lead role in the upcoming movie, CBR reports. The site previously speculated that Wise would play Monica Rambeau, who in the comics took on the name of Captain Marvel after the original Mar-Vell died. When Carol Danvers started calling herself Captain Marvel, she and Rambeau had a dispute over the name. The theory makes sense, but Rambeau isn’t the only character Wise could be playing.Looking back at Doctor Strange, some think its entirely possible that wise could be playing Tamara Devoux a.k.a. Captain Universe. We know how Marvel loves to hint at their future plans in each movie. Usually that happens in post-credits scenes, but sometimes they’re hidden in obscured, unimportant-seeming bits of dialog. Early on in the movie, Strange receives a call about a patient in need of his expertise: A schizophrenic woman who was struck by lightning. It’s possible that woman could be Devoux, and what appears to be schizophrenia is actually the universe communicating with her and giving her powers.If that’s the case and Wise is indeed playing Devoux, that could hint at the plot of Avengers 4. In the comics, Devoux joins the Avengers during the Infinity arc to fight the Builders, an old alien race who believe in their own perfection. As they push to expand their control over space and time, they have no qualms about destroying anything and everything in their way. That arc also saw Thanos come to Earth, just as he does in Infinity War. If the Avengers defeat Thanos in that movie, it would make sense for the fourth movie to adapt the rest of the arc. If the Builders show up after Thanos, the Avengers are going to need all the help they can get. A character who can sense nearly everything going on in the universe, and bend matter and energy to her will would be a valuable asset in that fight.Hugh Jackman in Logan (Via 20th Century Fox)The Marvel Cinematic Universe will also gain a few more characters than they initially planned for. With Disney’s deal to buy 20th Century Fox, the X-Men will eventually join their Marvel brethren on screen. The movies that have already been planned are still coming out (though New Mutants has been pushed to next year… boo), but after that who knows what characters could start showing up? Maybe Hugh Jackman could even return as Wolverine.Though the actor said he was done with the character after last year’s excellent Logan, it’d be hard for anyone to say no to Marvel Studios at this point. And it would make sense for the studio to go after Jackman. After an actor spends 17 years giving the definitive performance of a character, anyone who plays the role after that has a nearly impossible task in front of them. Sebastian Stan spoke at ACE Comic Con last weekend (per We Got This Covered), and says he’s discussed a potential return with Jackman. It sounds like Jackman is more open to another outing as Wolverine than he’s let on in public.“Recently I happened to be sitting next to Hugh Jackman,” Stan said. “I didn’t know what other awkward thing I could talk about but to be like, ‘‘Am I going to see you soon?’ He said a couple of things to me and I’ll just leave it at that. Otherwise, I feel like I’m going to get in trouble with somebody. I asked him though because I kept thinking whether or not Logan was supposed to be the last Wolverine thing or whatever and he said to me he’s been thinking about it and it’s been on his mind. So, I don’t know, he may be.”There’s nothing definitive there, but that certainly leaves open the possibility of Jackman’s return to the role. If he was well and truly done, Stan wouldn’t have had to be so vague. It’s surprising to learn he’s thinking about it though, because Logan was such a wonderful goodbye to the character. Jackman has said in the past though, that he always wished for a movie where Wolverine could interact with Iron Man and the Hulk. With Disney’s acquisition of Fox making that movie a real possibility, that could be enough to bring Jackman back for at least one more movie.

Russian launch failure delays landing for space station crew

first_imgMOSCOW (AP) — The launch failure of an unmanned Russian cargo spaceship has prompted the nation’s space agency to delay both the landing of some of the International Space Station’s crew and the launch of their successors, officials said Tuesday.The chief of the Roscosmos space agency, Igor Komarov, said the April 28 launch mishap was caused by a leak of fuel tanks in the Soyuz rocket’s third stage. Left in low orbit, the Progress cargo spaceship fell to Earth over the Pacific on May 8.

Freddie Mac Launches an ACE

first_img August 21, 2017 667 Views Share Freddie Mac Launches an ACE in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Newscenter_img Freddie Mac 2017-08-21 Brianna Gilpin In a buying climate that’s moving at an incredibly fast pace, Freddie Mac has announced a way to make things run even faster. Their automated appraisal alternative could possibly save homebuyers or homeowners looking to refinance up to $500 and cut as many as seven to 10 days off of closing. That is if Freddie Mac’s new technology determines them as not needing a traditional appraisal.”By leveraging big data and advanced analytics, as well as 40+ years of historical data, we’re cutting costs and speeding up the closing process for borrowers,” said David Lowman, EVP of Freddie Mac’s Single-Family Business. “At the same time, we’re providing immediate collateral representation and warranty relief to lenders. This is just one example of how we are reimagining the mortgage process to create a better experience for consumers and lenders.”The automated collateral evaluation (ACE) establishes whether consumers must use a traditional appraisal or not by “leveraging proprietary models and using data from multiple listing services and public records as well as a wealth of historical home values to determine collateral risks”. In order to find out if a property is eligible, lenders must submit the loan data through Loan Product Advisor, Freddie Mac’s smart end-to-end technology solution that assesses credit, capacity, and collateral to help lenders validate the quality of loans they originate.If the estimated value of the home provided by the lender is acceptable to ACE, the lender can receive immediate representation and warranty relief related to the value, condition, and marketability for the property upon delivery of the loan to Freddie Mac. It will be available for qualified home purchases on September 1, 2017, but has been available for qualified refinances since June 19, 2017.”When we launched Loan Advisor Suite in July 2016, we set out to give our customers certainty, usability, reliability, and efficiency,” said Andy Higginbotham, SVP of Strategic Delivery and Operations for Freddie Mac’s Single-Family Business. “ACE is our most recent capability to deliver on that vision.”For more information on Loan Advisor Suite, click here.last_img read more

It’s unlikely the Cardinals will pay him the type of money he made with the New York Jets — Cromartie earned $9.5 million in 2013.Cromartie, 29, has played eight seasons in the league, only missing one game in all that time. He has racked up 292 solo tackles, 92 passes defensed and 28 interceptions — including three returned for touchdowns — in his career.
