RMZ waiting for clarity on dividend distribution tax before IPO

first_imgRMZ Corp, real estate developer and investor, would wait for signals from the government on dividend distribution tax (DDT) before finalising its initial public offering (IPO), a senior company executive said on Thursday.”We are looking for clarity on the dividend distribution tax and stamp duty in the (upcoming) Union Budget based on which we will decide on how and when to get listed,” the executive told IB Times Media on the condition of anonymity.”India is our first priority for listing and if it does not work out, we will look at Singapore,” he added.In India, dividend is tax-free at the hands of shareholders but the company that distributes dividend is liable to pay tax to the government. “This comprises DDT of 15 percent along with a surcharge of 12 percent and education cess of 3 percent (inclusive of surcharge). Provisions exist to remove the cascading effect of DDT in a holding company-subsidiary relationship,” according to a KPMG note.The Budget session of Parliament will begin from 23 February and end on 13 May, 2016. The railway budget will be presented on 25 February and the union budget on 29 February. The economic survey will presented on 26 February.Bengaluru-based RMZ hopes to close FY2016 with lease rentals of $200 million and is currently outperforming the market in terms of rentals.”Rentals are growing in the range of 5 percent to 7 percent every year overall, but we are growing at a rate of 10 percent to 12 percent,” the executive said, attributing it to “premier” locations of the company’s office properties and better asset management.The executive said further that the company would be investing about $500 million in the next 12 to 18 months to take its current 20 million sq ft office property portfolio to 80 million sq ft by 2021.Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) has an investment of about $300 million and Barings Private Equity Partners has invested about $100 million in RMZ Corp.RMZ Corp’s office properties are located in Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Mumbai and New Delhi.The company recently purchased Essar Group’s Equinox Business Park in Mumbai for about $360 million, according to a Business Standard.last_img read more

In This Issue Happy Birthday Chuck… Bernank

first_imgIn This Issue. * Happy Birthday Chuck… * Bernanke worried about growth in US… * Japan posts a trade surplus… * Indian rupee falls… And, Now, Today’s Pfennig For Your Thoughts! Happy Birthday Big Guy… Good day… And Happy Birthday to Chuck! Yes it is Chuck Butlers birthday today, and I know all of you Pfennig Pfanatics will join me in wishing our fearless leader a very happy birthday today!! He is spending his birthday surrounded by his family in what he considers one of the greatest places on earth, the spring training home of the Cardinals. More thoughts on Chuck at the end of today’s Pfennig, but I just wanted to make sure I started today’s Pfennig off on a positive note. The dollar is starting of the day with a positive move vs. most of the currencies, after spending most of yesterday bouncing around in a fairly narrow range. I couldn’t find anything which caused the move higher this morning, with most analysts crediting a return of ‘safe haven’ buying for the increase. Both Fed Chairman Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Geithner were in front of Congress yesterday, and Bernanke was sounding a cautious tone regarding the US economic recovery. There was also a private report released which caused further concern on China’s growth prospects and the existing home sales in the US were disappointing, so the combination of these two items along with the caution tone of Bernanke are probably what is making investors return to the dollar. The 10 year treasury would certainly support the ‘safe haven’ theory. Yields on the 10 yr US bond have are down 4.3 basis points today, and now yields 2.25%. The yield on the 10 year had moved from below 2% at the beginning of the month to a high of 2.38% at the beginning of this week, a fairly dramatic move for bonds. With bonds, yields and the price of the bond are inversely related with bond prices moving lower as the yields move up. So bonds investors were selling bonds in a big way over the first 3 weeks of March, investing the proceeds into the equity markets and currencies other than the US$. But these same investors now seem to be moving back into the bonds, causing prices to rise and yields to fall back to 2.25%. Chuck has long warned Pfennig readers that the US treasury market is a bubble waiting to be popped, and the dramatic move in bond prices earlier this month should serve as a warning for investors. Bond yields just can’t remain as low as they have been, as inflation starts to put pressure on bond prices. Existing home sales in the US dropped .9% during the month of February, compared to an impressive 5.7% increase during the month of January. Economists had estimated a increase for sales of .9%, but the revision to January’s number helped offset the unexpected loss of sales. Today we will get the usual weekly jobs numbers, which are expected to show 350k newly unemployed with continuing claims of 3,380k. We will also see an index of House prices which are expected to have risen .3% MOM in January, and the Leading Indicators which are predicted to have increased .6% during the month of February. As I mentioned earlier, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke was in front of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform yesterday and sounded a more cautious tone on the prospects for the US economy. He warned the committee members that “Higher energy prices would probably slow growth, at least in the short run”. He went on to explain that rising gas prices “create at least short-term inflation pressures, and moreover, they act as a tax on household purchasing power and reduce consumption spending, and that also is a drag on the economy.” His cautionary tone matches the warnings we heard from NY Fed Head Dudley earlier this week. It seems the FOMC members are trying to make sure investors know the economic recovery is not a ‘sure thing’ and we will certainly hit some bumps on our road to recovery. Higher oil prices are creating a strong head wind which the US economic recovery is going to have to struggle against, and Bernanke and his partners on the FOMC are hoping the rising prices are just a quick gust which we can pedal through. Leaders of the European Union also continue to battle headwinds in their economic recovery. A report out this morning showed Euro-area services and manufacturing output shrank more than expected during March. The euro-area purchasing manager’s composite index fell to 48.7 from 49.3, with any reading below 50 indicating a contraction. But this data was offset a bit by an earlier report that showed German investor sentiment surged to a 21 month high. The euro also caught some love from the US financial leaders. Both Treasury Secretary Geithner and Fed Chairman Bernanke told the US congressmen that the risk from Europe’s debt crisis is fading. “In the past few months, financial stresses in Europe have lessened, which has contributed to an improved tone of financial markets around the world, including in the United States,” Bernanke said. Treasury Secretary Geithner went on to say “The European economies at the center of the crisis have made very significant progress.” But Secretary Geithner also warned that slower growth which is being predicted for the EU will have a negative impact on future growth here in the US. I haven’t written about the Japanese yen all week, but a report on Japan’s trade has finally given me a reason to visit the yen. Japan reported their first trade surplus in five months on higher than forecast exports. The news adds to growing evidence that the world’s third largest economy is finally growing again. Japan reported a trade surplus of 32.9 billion yen, a sharp reversal of a record deficit posted in January. The surplus was even more surprising to analysts who had predicted another trade deficit. Exports to the US were mostly responsible for the surplus, increasing 11.9% in February from a year earlier. Auto exports were the main driver of the increase in shipments to the US. The yen increased slightly vs. the US$ after the surprise news, but pared its gains in early US trading. The yen had been one of the best performing currencies over the past few years, but has reversed course this year dropping nearly 7.5% vs. the US$. At least some of this sell-off in the yen has been due to the re-emergence of the carry trade, where investors borrow and sell low yielding currencies to purchase higher yielding currencies to book the interest rate differential. Carry trades have a fairly close correlation to global growth, with more investors willing to invest in them when they are confident. This is part of the reason the yen has underperformed this year, as investors have sold it while investing into the higher yielding currencies of Australia and New Zealand. It will be interesting to see what will happen to the yen if the Japanese economy recovers. Perhaps these carry trade investors will need to find a different currency to borrow and sell; the euro certainly looks like a plausible alternative. A top official in India’s finance ministry predicted rates may be cut in April. Economic Affairs Secretary R. Gopalan said “If inflation remains at this level after factoring in various things, then interest rate reversals may start in April.” He went on to stress that growth is important, and current interest rate levels are hampering it. Finance officials have been hinting that they are prepared to start cutting rates ever since they left them unchanged at the last meeting on March 15th. India’s Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee has taken steps to cut India’s trade deficit, hoping to support the Indian rupee. The main item in his plan is a doubling of the tax on imports of gold. Gold accounts for 14 percent of India’s imports, so the higher tax rate will definitely help the budget. These moves are seen as positive steps for the Indian economy, in spite of the protests from jewelers who closed their shops for five days. Investors should be encouraged by the Finance Minister’s plans to reduce the current account and budget deficits, and the currency should benefit from the rising economic fundamentals. Indian interest rates are among the highest offered, second only to those in Brazil. Higher rates have helped propel the Indian rupee to a 3.61% increase this year. The commodity currencies of Australia and New Zealand were off slightly after a report signaled Chinese manufacturing will contract for a fifth month. The report, authored by HSBC, showed a Purchasing Managers Index fell to 48.1 in March, the lowest level in four months. This indicates Chinese manufacturing is continuing to contract. The New Zealand dollar was also sold off after a report showed GDP rose .3% during the last quarter of 2011, slightly below economist’s estimates of a .6% growth. The slower growth figure dampened expectations that Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Alan Bollard would increase rates by September of this year. The kiwi has had a 4% increase in value vs. the US$ this year on the back of these interest rate expectations, so we could see a further pull back by the kiwi. To recap… It is Chuck’s Birthday. The dollar moved higher on ‘safe haven’ buying after Bernanke and Geithner warned that higher gas prices would have a negative impact on US growth. Existing home sales were disappointing and reports out of Europe showed manufacturing is shrinking. Japan reported a trade surplus for the first time in a while, helping to push the yen higher. India’s top finance minister is predicting rates will be cut in April, and a tax on Gold imports is set to double in April. Finally, New Zealand GDP increased less than predicted in the 4th quarter of 2011, causing some to predict rates will be stay put through 2012. Currencies today 3/22/2012.

Is It Time to Call Tesla the Future of Made In America

April 10, 2014 Guest Writer 3 min read Add to Queue Is It Time to Call Tesla the Future of Made In America? Not Quite. When you think car and you think America, what comes to mind?If it was Ford’s F-150 pickup truck, than you’re on the money. (I mean, check it out: pretty darn American looking). In addition to being the country’s top selling vehicle last year, the pickup truck also landed in the top spot on Cars.com’s American-Made index, which measures how “American” a car is based on factors like where the car’s parts come from, whether the car is assembled in the U.S. and if it is bought in large numbers by American consumers.But according to a recent report by Morgan Stanley, Ford F-150 better watch its tail lights. Why? Tesla is fast approaching. The report predicts that once the Elon Musk-led company opens its $6 billion battery factory, Tesla vehicles will zoom into the top spot.Related: Elon Musk Admits to ‘Conversations’ With Apple About TeslaDoes this mean the future of Made in America, as Quartz reports, lies in Musk’s hands?It all depends on how you define “Made in America.” If the motivation behind the Made in America movement is job creation — that American manufacturers need to keep and create more jobs here — then the answer is no, probably not.  At least not for a while.That’s because, despite the amount of press Tesla and Elon Musk get, it’s still a fringe player in the automotive industry.Sales of Tesla’s battery-powered vehicles, priced from about $70,000, totaled around 22,450 last year. “With 6,900 deliveries in the [fourth] quarter [Tesla’s Model S sedan] is still a niche vehicle,” Kevin Tynan, an auto analyst for Bloomberg Industries told Bloomberg. According to the company’s annual report, as of December 31, 2013, it had 2,964 full-time employees world-wide. (The percentage of those employees who work in the U.S. was not released in the report. An inquiry to Tesla was not immediately returned).Related: Can Consumers Bring Manufacturing Jobs Back to the U.S.?Meanwhile, Ford sold a total of 6.3 million vehicles last year, with 3.1 million in North America alone. The company employed 181,000 people globally, with 84,000 of those employees working in North America (while the report did not specifically list the number of American employees, a 2011 estimate put the automotive maker at employing 65,000 Americans, a number that has surely grown as the auto industry has continued to recover since the recession).Once Tesla sets up its so-called “gigafactory,” the company predicts that it will employ an additional 6,500 Americans. But that’s not slated to happen until 2020, by the company’s own estimate (Tesla has yet to narrow down the factory’s location to a single state).All of this is to say that even if Tesla eventually does manage to nab the top spot on Cars.com’s “American-Made index,” let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Larger, if admittedly less flashy, auto makers are still embodying the term “made in America” to the fullest. Which, in our estimation, rests less on the concept that their car parts are assembled in the U.S. and more on the fact that they continue to employ a whole ton of Americans.Related: Secrets of the 10 Most-Trusted Brands Laura Entislast_img read more

Obamas DOJ Is Bringing Its Big Guns to the Apple eBook Appeal

first_img December 11, 2014 –shares Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Next Article Here’s a surprise.The e-book antitrust trial that went so badly against Apple two years ago is headed to an appeals court Monday and there’s a new name on the docket.Arguing for the U.S., alongside the lawyers for the antitrust division who handled the trial, will be Malcom Stewart, one of the biggest guns in the office of the U.S. Solicitor General.For the Solicitor General’s office to argue a case at this level is not unprecedented. It handled some of the Obama Administration’s oral arguments in Affordable Care Act appeals, for example.But it is rare.As a rule, when the Department of Justice wins at the trial stage and the losing party appeals, the concerned division of the DOJ — in this case antitrust — defends the ruling in the appellate process.Why a Deputy Solicitor General would intercede here is a bit of a mystery.Does the Solicitor General’s office — and by extension, the Obama Administration — feel that strongly about the righteousness of the DOJ’s cause?After all, Apple’s argument that the e-book case turned antitrust law upside down — protecting a monopolist (Amazon) and prosecuting a new entrant (Apple) — has only been strengthened by Amazon’s subsequent behavior. (See Amazon: Friendly giant or unstoppable bully?)Or does the office expect that U.S. v.

Researchers uncover potential clue to halt destruction of nerve cells in people

first_img Source:https://med.umich.edu/ Reviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Apr 24 2019A special focus on rogue proteins may hold future promise in stopping the progression of nerve cell destruction in people who have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or frontotemporal dementia.ALS, a rare but devastating disorder that’s also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, attacks the body’s nerve cells, resulting in progressive muscle weakness as the neurons degenerate over time. There is no cure. People with ALS eventually lose their strength and the ability to move their arms, legs and body.About a third of those with ALS also develop frontotemporal dementia (FTD), a destruction of neurons in the brain that causes profound personality changes and disability. The two diseases are similar in both pathology and genetics. FTD tends to affect people earlier than Alzheimer’s disease, the most common type of dementia.Researchers have long known that for most people with ALS and FTD, deposits of a protein called TDP-43 accumulate in nerve cells. The buildup of TDP-43 may be responsible for the death of nerve cells in ALS and FTD. Understanding exactly how and why this happens is the focus of Michigan Medicine’s Sami Barmada, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant professor of neurology, and his research team.Their most recent preclinical findings, published in Cell Reports, pinpoint a structure within the TDP-43 protein that is critical for the function of this protein and its ability to cause nerve cell death. In the process, they uncovered a potential clue to halt the destruction of nerve cells.”By manipulating the structure of the protein,” Barmada says, “we determined that RNA binding is pivotal for maintaining the stability, function and toxicity of TDP-43 in disease models.”Lost in translationRNA’s main function is to translate the molecular instructions from DNA to build proteins. For RNA to be translated into protein, it has to be correctly processed, and it has to last long enough to undergo translation. Normally, TDP-43 helps regulate both the processing and stability of RNA.Barmada’s team demonstrated that when there is too much TDP-43, RNA is destabilized. The RNAs that were most affected were involved in energy and protein production, two pathways that nerve cells need to survive. They found an identical pattern in cells from ALS patients, suggesting that TDP-43 may be responsible.So, how does the buildup of TDP-43 cause nerve cells to die? Suspecting it involves TDP-43’s ability to bind RNA, Barmada and colleagues focused on manipulating this function of the protein.Because protein structure is crucial for function, they wondered if they could alter TDP-43’s function by changing its structure. By introducing specific mutations, they interrupted an interaction between two parts of the protein needed for RNA binding, creating versions of TDP-43 unable to bind RNA. Unexpectedly, they found that when TDP-43 cannot bind RNA it is quickly degraded, leading them to believe that these versions of TDP-43 would not be so lethal for nerve cells.Related StoriesInterdisciplinary workgroup outlines what is known and unknown about paradoxical lucidityUse of statins linked to reduction of mortality risk in dementia patientsDementia patients hospitalized and involved in transitional care at higher ratesWatching neurons degenerateTo determine whether these engineered versions of TDP-43 are toxic to nerve cells, Barmada’s team used a method called automated microscopy. Here, thousands of nerve cells in culture are imaged over time using a microscope that is entirely controlled by programs. Additional programs analyze the data, determine when each cell dies, and compare different conditions using methods from human clinical trials.”This is like a clinical trial in a dish, measuring the fate of each nerve cell as if it were a person,” Barmada says. “We saw when we interrupted the structure, it dramatically destabilized the protein. Cells just chewed it up.”We know in disease that if there is too much TDP-43, cells die,” he says. “If the excess TDP-43 is degraded, as here, the cells are rescued.”To further support their conclusions, the investigators teamed with Asim Beg, Ph.D., from U-M’s Department of Pharmacology, to create a worm model of TDP-43 with the same structural change using CRISPR/Cas9 genome engineering. Worms expressing these versions of TDP-43 were identical to worms with no TDP-43 at all, suggesting that the structure targeted by the mutations is essential for TDP-43 function and toxicity.Targeting the structureTaken together, the findings show that modifying TDP-43 structure eliminates its ability to bind RNA and cause nerve cell death in models of ALS and FTD.Targeting this structure opens the potential to explore new therapies for ALS and FTD.”If you have an approach that can interrupt this structure, you might be able to mop up the extra TDP-43 that’s there and prevent nerve cell death,” Barmada says.Such an approach would likely take the form of a drug that would interact with TDP-43, interfere with its structure and cause TDP-43 to be degraded. Even so, completely knocking TDP-43 out is not feasible, as the protein is essential for life. “But in theory, the dose can be adjustable, something that gives you a dial on TDP-43,” Barmada says. That leads him to the next question: “What’s the magic level?”last_img read more

first_img Citation: Monte Carlo simulations for neutron experiments (2019, June 26) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-06-monte-carlo-simulations-neutron.html Achieving a good signal-to-background ratio in neutron scattering experiments is a crucial factor in instrument and sample environment design. However, in current Monte Carlo simulation software, not all neutron interactions are considered. If all the neutron interactions that contribute to the background can be included, the expected signal-to-background ratios can be simulated and used to design better instruments. Neutrons get a wider angle on DNA and RNA to advance 3-D models Provided by CORDIS All neutron interactions contribute to the background, both inside and around the sample. Cryomagnets and pressure cells, for example, produce undesired scattering. Modelling them completely also means taking into account the inelastic scattering contribution and the material microstructure too.Dr. Victor Laliena from ICMA located in Zaragoza, Spain, has developed a code for calculating the interactions which depend on the microstructure of materials: coherent elastic scattering, incoherent inelastic scattering and diffuse reflection. Three usual types of microstructures can be simulated: uniformly random polycrystals (powder), mosaic single crystals, and two-dimensional disordered structures. The coding has now been implemented in the widely used McStas simulation software. Being compatible with the Union package, multiple scattering simulations can even be performed on complex geometries.This development will be very useful for future instrument designs, for example on the Beamline for materials European Engineering Research (BEER) due to be built at the European Spallation Source (ESS). Simulations are of great interest for the BEER team who need to evaluate the background in a quasi-realistic simulation even though the beamline has not been built yet.center_img Credit: SINE2020 Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

NASA Set To Launch a DeepSpace Atomic Clock Tonight

first_img In essence, atomic clocks can correct themselves. In an atomic clock, the frequency of the quartz oscillator is transformed into the frequency that is applied to a collection of atoms from a specific element. If the frequency is correct, it will cause many electrons in the atoms to jump energy levels. But if it’s not, fewer electrons will jump. That tells the clock that the quartz oscillator is off-frequency and how much to correct it. On the Deep Space Atomic Clock, this correction is calculated and applied to the quartz oscillator every few seconds. But that’s not all that makes the Deep Space Atomic Clock special. This clock doesn’t just use mercury atoms, it also uses charged mercury ions. Because ions are atoms that have electric charge, they can be contained in an electromagnetic “trap.” This keeps the atoms from interacting with the walls of a vacuum chamber, a common problem with the neutral atoms used in regular atomic clocks. When they interact with the vacuum walls, environmental changes such as temperature can cause changes in the atoms themselves, and lead to frequency errors. The Deep Space Atomic Clock won’t be subject to such environmental changes, according to NASA, and so will be 50 times more stable than the clocks used on GPS satellites. After the clock launches today, scientists will be able to begin testing the clock’s precision as it spends days, then months in orbit. The Deep Space Atomic Clock will launch from Kennedy Space Center in Florida on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket as one of two dozen payloads. The 4-hour launch window opens at 11:30 p.m. EDT (0330 June 25 GMT); visit Space.com tomorrow for complete coverage of the launch. NASA Wants Robots to Sniff Out Moon Pits for Astronaut Homes Related: This Is What 2 Dozen Satellites Look Like Packed for Launch on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy But how does it work? Astronomers already use clocks to navigate in space. They send a signal to the spacecraft, which sends it back to Earth. The time of that round trip tells scientists the spacecraft’s distance from Earth. That’s because the signal is traveling at the speed of light, so armed with the time it took to go to the spacecraft and back, finding distance is but a simple calculation away. By sending multiple signals over time, scientists can calculate a spacecraft’s trajectory — both where it was and where it’s going. But in order to know a spacecraft’s location within a small margin of error, astronomers need very precise clocks that can measure billionths of a second, according to NASA. They also need clocks that are extremely stable. “Stability” here refers to how consistently a clock measures a unit of time. While you’d think that clocks always measure the same length of time as a “second,” clocks have a tendency to drift and slowly mark longer and longer times as a “second.” For measuring the locations of spacecrafts in distant space, astronomers need their atomic clocks to be consistent to better than a billionth of a second over days and weeks. Modern clocks, from those we wear on our wrists to those used on satellites, most often keep time using a quartz crystal oscillator. These take advantage of the fact that quartz crystals vibrate at a precise frequency when voltage is applied to them, NASA said in the statement. The vibrations act like the pendulum in a grandfather clock. But, by the standards of space navigation, quartz crystal clocks aren’t very stable at all. After six weeks, they may be off by a full millisecond, which translates at the speed of light to 185 miles (300 kilometers). That much error would have a huge impact on measuring the position of a fast-moving spacecraft, NASA said. Atomic clocks combine quartz crystal oscillators with certain types of atoms to create better stability. NASA’s Deep Space Atomic Clock will use mercury atoms and be off by less than a nanosecond after four days and less than a microsecond after 10 years. It would take 10 million years for the clock to be wrong by a whole second, according to NASA. Related: A NASA Atomic Clock on SpaceX’s Next Falcon Heavy Will Pioneer Deep-Space Travel Tech It may not be surprising to learn that atomic clocks take advantage of the structure of atoms, which are composed of a nucleus of protons and neutrons surrounded by electrons. The atoms of each element have a distinct structure, with a different number of protons in the nucleus. While the number of electrons each type of atom has can vary, the electrons occupy distinct energy levels, and a jolt of exactly the right amount of energy can cause an electron to jump to a higher energy level around the nucleus. The energy required to make an electron do this jump is unique to each element and consistent to all atoms of that element. “The fact that the energy difference between these orbits is such a precise and stable value is really the key ingredient for atomic clocks,” Eric Burt, an atomic clock physicist at JPL, said in the statement. “It’s the reason atomic clocks can reach a performance level beyond mechanical clocks.” Humans To Mars?

The Deep Space Atomic Clock, developed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is a space-ready upgrade to the atomic clocks we use here on Earth and to the clocks that already fly on satellites like those that provide GPS. Ideally, this new atomic clock will make spacecraft navigation to distant objects in space — on the journey to Mars, for example — more autonomous, NASA said in a statement. The precision in measurement of the spacecraft’s position that scientists hope to get with the Deep Space Atomic Clock will allow spacecraft traveling in deep space to act on their own, without much communication with Earth. It’d be a huge improvement to how spacecraft are currently navigated, NASA said.

Chinesemade DJI drones widely adopted by US safety agencies even as Trump

first_img Tech News 24 May 2019 Nasa’s first-of-kind tests look to manage drone in cities This week DJI announced two high-security drones intended for government use. Known as the Government Edition models, they have received clearance from the US Department of Interior, which is responsible for evaluating and approving drone technology for use across a wide range of applications.While filmmakers were the first to embrace drones for their ability to replace expensive helicopters as a means to get aerial footage, the unmanned aerial systems are now being widely adopted by public works agencies to carry out safety inspections of infrastructure, Gasparic said in a presentation at RISE. Drones are also used to manage and maintain energy grids and are increasingly being adopted by the agricultural industry.“While there are a whole range of different applications out there, we cannot imagine all the different applications because there are too many,” said Gasparic, who estimated that the US alone has about 120,000 commercial professional drone pilots, part of a global community of 370,000.DJI has repeatedly denied that its devices send flight data to China or elsewhere, but to address such concerns it announced last month a plan to open new manufacturing lines in the US.Shenzhen-based DJI, founded in 2006, has grown from a cramped room in a university dorm to a global enterprise with 14,000 employees and 17 offices internationally. Its new headquarters in Shenzhen, set to open in 2022, will house all its operations under one roof.The company controls more than 70% of the global commercial and consumer drone market and generated sales of 18bil yuan (RM10.77bil or US$2.7 billion) in 2017, an 80% jump from the year before. – South China Morning Post US public safety agencies are rapidly adopting unmanned aircraft from Chinese drone maker DJI Technologies even as the Trump administration voices security concerns that the devices could be sending sensitive surveillance data back to China.“Between 2015 and 2018 we have seen 500 per cent growth of drone adoption by public safety agencies in the US,” Jan Gasparic, director of strategic partnerships at DJI, said at the RISE tech conference in Hong Kong on Wednesday. “The reason for such a fast rate is because this technology has a transformative impact on the type of work they do.”The rapid adoption of drones in safety agencies illustrates DJI’s strategy of sharpening its focus on its industrial business with new products to offset slowing growth in the broader consumer market.“DJI started as a drone company but will not only play in that field,” said Gasparic. “We are always taking different approaches to put core technologies into new products and [product] categories.” Tech News 26 May 2019 Here’s why your Internet may be delivered by a drone someday soon SCMP , Tech , Gear , Enterprises , Policy , Big Tech DJI controls more than 70% of the global commercial and consumer drone market and generated sales of US$2.7bil in 2017. — SCMP Tags / Keywords:center_img World 09 Jul 2019 Saudi-led coalition intercepted a Yemeni Houthi drone launched at kingdom – SPA Related News Related News In May, CNN reported that the US Department of Homeland Security alerted American companies to “be aware” in case their unmanned aerial systems (UAS) data was “being stored by the vendor or other third parties”.The alert from the department’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, according to CNN, stated that the drones were a “potential risk to an organisation’s information”.The warning did not name any particular manufacturer, but fuelled speculation that DJI – which accounts for nearly 80 per cent of the drones used in North America, according to data from Skylogic Research – might be banned from selling in the US. {{category}} {{time}} {{title}}last_img read more

Wiesberger cards careerbest 61 to share Scottish Open lead

first_img(Reuters) – Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger birdied his final five holes and surged into a share of the halfway lead with Lee Slattery and Erik Van Rooyen at the Scottish Open on Friday.Wiesberger continued his recent hot form, carding a course-record 10-under-par 61 in the second round at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick on another day of low scoring.Englishman Slattery and South African van Rooyen (both 64) matched Wiesberger at 14-under 128, two strokes ahead of Swede Henrik Stenson and Italian Nino Bertasio.American Justin Thomas was three shots back, while Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy trailed by six. Joint leader Wiesberger has returned to form with a vengeance recently after being knocked back by a wrist injury that kept him out of action for seven months last year.Healthy again, the 33-year-old Austrian won the Made in Denmark tournament in May, his fifth European Tour victory, and tied for second at the Irish Open last Sunday.”Coming off injury, winning in Denmark a couple of weeks ago was a great momentum boost for me,” he told Golf Channel, adding he was not taking the sport as seriously as before his injury.A lone bogey on Friday was more than balanced by 11 birdies, the lowest score of his European Tour career, which he understatedly described as a “solid” round.”I kept the ball in place nicely and hit a few nice iron shots, kept going with the flow and got rewarded,” he said.Former world number one Thomas has also battled a wrist problem, though more recently than Wiesberger.Thomas missed the PGA Championship in May, and is still playing his way back to tournament sharpness.”It’s felt great so far,” he said of the wrist after shooting 64.”I was a little nervous coming over here, just because it’s so different than the turf in America.”This is what I’ve been working towards, just trying to build some confidence going into (the British Open) next week.”McIlroy also was pleased with his performance, even if successive 67s left him a bit off the pace.”I’ve played the way I wanted to play,” he said.”Yes, maybe I could have squeezed another couple of shots out of both (rounds) but the guys up the top of the leaderboard are obviously playing very good golf.” (Reporting by Andrew Both in Cary, North Carolina; Editing by Ken Ferris) Other Sport 08 Jul 2019 Other Sports: Golf: Spain’s Rahm shines on final day to seal second Irish Open title Related News Related Newscenter_img Golf 09 Jul 2019 Malaysia’s Green can grin as European Tour title is within range Golf 07 Jul 2019 England’s Rock grabs Irish Open lead with record round of 60 {{category}} {{time}} {{title}}last_img read more

Rosberg happy to see Hamilton break all records

first_imgSILVERSTONE, England (Reuters) – Nico Rosberg can see Lewis Hamilton smashing Michael Schumacher’s records to become Formula One’s most successful driver, and the Briton’s former Mercedes team mate says he feels pretty good about it.The German is the only man to beat Hamilton over a season in the V6 turbo hybrid era that started in 2014 and the more success Hamilton has, the more lustre it adds to his own achievement.”It is definitely not a bad thing when I see him (Hamilton) going on to become the best of all-time and beating Schumacher’s records,” the 2016 champion told Reuters at the British Grand Prix on Saturday.”It makes me think “OK, Nico, you have done quite a good job.” Related News {{category}} {{time}} {{title}}center_img If Valtteri Bottas, Hamilton’s current team mate and battered title rival, wants any tips — not that Rosberg feels the Finn needs any help from him — then he can expect plenty of sacrifice and suffering.Rosberg revealed that he spent up to eight hours a week with a sports psychologist during that 2016 season, undergoing the mental equivalent of boot camp to beat the one man with the same machinery.”Two hours every second day of mental training. It was a huge process and just gave me so much and that’s one of the big reasons why I ended up being world champion,” said the German, who retired days after winning his title.Son of 1982 world champion Keke, Rosberg started working with the psychologist in 2007, after a debut season with Williams, but ramped it up significantly for that final campaign.”I just dedicated my whole every single breathing second of my life to winning that next race and becoming world champion,” he said.”Lewis drove me to go searching for ways to be better than I ever thought I could be because he’s the best of all time, or going towards the best of all time.”So of course to beat him you need to rise above everything you have. It’s the only way to win.”And at the end of the weekend, there is no switching off and forgetting either.”That is the tough thing about F1. It affects your wife, your mum and dad. It is not like you go home and it is all done,” said Rosberg, happy to have closed that chapter in his life.”It affects everybody. That is why it is so intense. The suffering and the joy goes all the way to your home. That never stops.”MOTIVATIONHamilton is heading for a sixth championship, one short of Schumacher’s career tally, and has 79 career wins compared to the Ferrari great’s 91.The Briton already holds the record for pole positions and has won more than half the races since the V6s were introduced in 2014.Compatriot Jenson Button, the 2009 champion, told reporters he could see Hamilton winning 10 titles before he was done but Rosberg said that would depend on the 34-year-old’s other interests.”Equalling Schumacher’s record has to be a motivation. He has this historic chance and he realistically knows he can do it. He has the car, he has the team and the regulations are not changing before 2021,” said the German.”He can equal him next year, in terms of championships, and beat him on race wins and become the best of all time. That has to be hugely motivating. It has to be. It is such an opportunity.”Rosberg, at Silverstone to promote a behavioural science programme with beer brand Heineken’s ‘When You Drive, Never Drink’ campaign, said Bottas had come back strongly from a poor 2018 season but could not afford to let the momentum slip.”He’s been struggling as of late, a little bit back to the Valtteri of last year lately, so he always needs to be careful,” he said.”If there’s too many of these last year Valtteris, then you’re going to be out.”And Lewis just gets more and more confidence and then he’s off and away again. He needs to try to keep fighting and not allow Lewis to get that self confidence.”Rosberg said the real Hamilton rarely turned up in practice — “Lewis just can’t really be bothered on Fridays” — but Saturday and Sunday was another story.”I always used to work so hard on Friday, and do the setup of the car, and then this guy comes and finally commits himself and with his natural talent, very often also taking all the setup work that I’ve done, and just out-qualifying me. “It’s horrible.” (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Toby Davis)last_img read more
