Photo: ReutersIndiia’s West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday alleged that prime minister Narendra Modi’s election rally in Bengal’s Mathurapur constituency was held at a ground which belongs to the owner of an illegal microfinance company.Taking a swipe at Modi for repeatedly accusing her and her party leaders of being involved in Saradha and Rose Valley chit fund scam, the Trinamool Congress supremo urged the police to immediately start a case against that “chit fund owner”.”The ground where PM Modi is holding his rally today belongs to Kapil Mondal, the owner of a microfinance company without license. Go and check. And he (Modi) talks about chit fund scams?” Banerjee said during her meeting at the same parliamentary constituency.”I have got all the documents. It has come to our knowledge just yesterday (Wednesday) that the person has collected millions of rupees from people in the name of his company and illegally bought lands here. I will hand over all the documents to the local police here so that a case could be immediately started against the chit fund owner,” she said.India`s prime minister Narendra Modi waves towards his supporters during an election campaign rally in New Delhi, India, on 8 May 2019. Photo: Reuters Meta: Indiia’s West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday alleged that prime minister Narendra Modi`s election rally in Bengal`s Mathurapur constituency was held at a ground which belongs to the owner of an illegal microfinance companyShe also wondered whether the BJP is getting a share of the money collected by the microfinance company owner.”Is he giving a share of the money to BJP? Maybe they are. Where is Narendra Modi? You talk about Narada (sting footage case), Saradha. But this is how you people start such scams,” she said with a hint of sarcasm in her voice.The owner of the land, however, refuted Banerjee’s allegations and said his company has been given a clean chit by central regulatory authorities like the Reserve Bank of India and the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).”The SEBI and RBI has checked everything here and given me a clean chit. Maybe she is claiming it to be illegal because she could not hold the rally on this ground. Had I permitted her to hold a meeting here, everything would have become legal,” Mondal said.last_img

Addressing the suspect in Spanish, Acevedo asked him to come out of hiding and surrender, and he even asked the suspect’s relatives to help find him.In the afternoon, the manhunt continued for the suspect in the Southwest Houston area but Constable deputies were seen leaving the scene of police shootings while Department of Public Safety’s troopers were moving in.3:40 p.m. dozens of police cars and civilian vehicles could be seen leaving the area of the shelter.

first_img(Phys.org) —Adam Falkowski, a physicist working at CERN, on his Particle Physics Blog, is claiming that researchers on the BICEP2 team that uploaded a paper (First direct evidence of cosmic inflation) to the arXiv preprint server this past March have acknowledged to some in the science community that there may be a problem with their methodology. Members of the BICEP2 research team are denying Falkowski’s claim, but the assertion has led to rumors on the Internet that the team may not have found evidence of cosmic inflation after all. Explore further © 2014 Phys.org Cosmologists cast doubt on inflation evidence The Big Bang theory suggests the universe as we know it came to exist as the result of a giant explosion, approximately 14 billion years ago, followed by a rapid thrusting of material from the point of the explosion out into what we now observe as the universe around us. That thrusting has been dubbed the theory of cosmic inflation—it describes the rapid expansion of the universe. Adherents contend that during the initial phase of cosmic inflation, gravitational waves would have been generated, and should be still visible today. Last March, the BICEP2 team claimed in their paper that they had found evidence of such gravitational waves, giving cosmic inflation theory a huge boost.But now, some have suggested that there might have been a problem with the way the observations were made—a map the team used which was created by the ESA’s Planck team might have been interpreted incorrectly. To spot gravitational waves, the team had to rule out other signals it received based on data from a variety of sources. One of those sources, the map created by the Planck team included several possible sources of light, but the researchers at BICEP2 thought it only charted dust or ashes from exploding stars. This bit of news leads to a little bit of doubt about the results the team found, and now places them at the mercy of an update of the map by the Planck team.In the meantime, members of the BICEP2 team have been responding to the rumors and claim they are still confident in their results and that any gossip suggesting they have begun to doubt their work is wrong. Whether they believe their work is in jeopardy or not, is, of course, not really what’s important—finding out if what they reported is correct is what matters, and that is going to take some time.center_img Journal information: arXiv Citation: Blogger claims BICEP2 team acknowledging possible error in discovery of evidence of gravitational waves (2014, May 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-05-blogger-bicep2-team-acknowledging-error.html This document is subject to copyright.

Enroll Now for Free July 14, 2017 3 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Have you ever purposely misled a customer? The public? The media? Steve Jobs did. And he did it to change the world.The story goes back to 2007, when Apple was first introducing the iPhone. Jobs knew that he had a product that would have an enormous impact on the way humans use technology — and also have an enormous impact on his company’s future profits.Unfortunately, Jobs had a big problem: the iPhone didn’t really exist. Yet in January of that year, he planned to demo the iPhone to an audience at the company’s Macworld conference that included customers, partners, tech media…and the world. All he had to show them was a flawed, unfinished model and some big ideas. So what did Jobs do? He decided to mislead his audience.Related: 6 Reasons Why Steve Jobs Was Truly One of a KindAccording to Shawn Knight, who wrote about this story in Techspot a few years after Jobs’ death, the iPhone at the time was “riddled with bugs.” What kind of bugs?Related: Steve Jobs and the Seven Rules of Success”For example,” Knight wrote, “the phone could play a section of audio or video but not an entire clip without crashing. If you sent an email then surfed the web, it would work. Do that step in reverse and it’s likely to crash.”Undeterred, Jobs demanded a workaround that would fool the audience. His development team created a “golden path” which was basically a step by step, scripted procedure of features that he could show in a specific order so that the phone wouldn’t malfunction. Jobs took the further step of demanding that his programmers rig the iPhone so that it always showed five bars of signal strength to demonstrate its wireless capability, even though the actual signal was less than reliable.But that wasn’t all. The iPhone developers still hadn’t fixed major issues with the device’s memory management which frequently caused a restart. The workaround was for Jobs to keep a few iPhones on stage and switch from one to another when memory became low.In the end, after five days of constant practicing, the 90-minute demonstration went off without a hitch and Apple would soon make history. It was “practically a miracle,” according to one Apple engineer at the time.Related: These 11 Steve Jobs Quotes Will Motivate You to Change the WorldSure, there was no way that Jobs was fully certain that all the features he promised on the iPhone would actually work in the real world. But he plowed ahead anyway with his fake demonstration. Why? Because he believed he was doing the right thing.Do you sometimes mislead your customers? Of course you do. Hopefully you’re doing it for the right reasons too.
