BSEMIDCAP lost 1.26 per cent and BSE SMALLCAP lost 1.41 per cent. Dow Jones had a stellar week with it gaining a massive 1,168.90 points or 4.71 per cent to close at 25,983.94 points. The US FED has indicated that they would be cutting interest rates and they could go down all the way to zero in time to come. RBI cut interest rates on expected lines by the customary 25 basis points. Repo rate is now 5.75 per cent and it is at its lowest level since 2010. What is important to note is that the stance has been changed from neutral to accommodative and this indicates that more cuts could follow. Also Read – Cuban pathosIt is on the NBFC front that not much has happened and while the contentious circular struck down by Supreme Court maintains its spirit, the same looks mildly different in reading. The crux of the problem being faced by NBFC’s is that they have been lending to riskier propositions and charging higher rates of interest and trying to maximise profits. In this process, they have been taking risks far greater than what even banks would take when lending to lower-rated borrowers. When issues emerge in the market place, it first affects the lower-rated clients and this is what has happened. Another issue that has cropped up with the housing finance NBFC’s is their exposure to bulk loans and developers. With a slowdown in the realty space, they are stuck with no rotation of their loans and the developer not able to pay up as he is not having sales of property. It truly is a ‘catch 22’ situation. A piece of good news for the market is that monsoon has hit Kerala coast on Saturday. It would take maybe 7 to 10 days to hit the financial capital of the country, but the event is now on course. The progress of the monsoon would now be a talking point and one would see the electronic media using this as a discussion point on a daily basis. They then talk of sectors the monsoon would impact and so on. Most fund managers are advocating that the next leg of the rally would see midcap and Smallcap stocks outperforming the large-cap stocks. While this may seem logical, the current scenario is such that action continues in the large-cap stocks only. It is yet to percolate to the small and midcap sectors. With results season over, Cabinet formation completed, focus would now be on the budget to be presented in less than a month. While the government has made overtures to the opposition on conducting business and the smooth passage of bills in the house, it needs to be soon how they reciprocate. Coming to the week ahead, one would see markets remaining choppy and volatile. There would be sharp bouts of rise and fall as a significant segment of people believe everything is priced in and there is no reason for markets to rise. When there is buying, this leads to short covering and bulls have their say. Similarly, when nothing happens and markets become listless, they tend to fall. This is when bears take the upper hand. This would continue with markets remaining in a broad range. Buy on dips and sell on rallies. There will be plenty of such opportunities.

The 53-year-old actor, whose last few films – Dilwale, Jab Harry Met Sejal and Zero – were not well-received by the audiences, said the passion for cinema he sees in the people around drives him to tell good stories. ”What drives me to do a film is the people around me who make such a great cinema… And I think I have a huge amount of capacity to do some really good cinema. I have 20-25 years of good cinema left in me,” Shah Rukh said.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has dedicated and opened the Marlo Thomas Center for Global Education and Collaboration on the St. Jude campus.The new center, which will sit atop the world’s first proton therapy center designed for and dedicated solely to the treatment of children, is critical to St. Jude in leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.The center is named for St. Jude National Outreach Director Marlo Thomas, and in recognition of a lifetime spent working for St. Jude to raise awareness and funds for the research and treatment of childhood cancer. Ms. Thomas was joined at today’s ceremony by former United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Secretary Clinton previously attended the dedication and opening of St. Jude’s Patient Care Center in 1994 when she was First Lady of the United States.The Marlo Thomas Center for Global Education and Collaboration is a key piece of a new $200 million, LEED Gold certified building on the St. Jude campus to usher in a new era of research, education, collaboration, care and treatment for children with cancer. In addition to sitting atop the world’s first proton therapy center dedicated solely to the treatment of children, the 38,000-square-foot center will become the hub for the St. Jude International Outreach Program, which aims to improve childhood cancer survival rates worldwide through 25 official partner sites in 17 countries. The center also will support the training and education of St. Jude’s postdoctoral and graduate fellows on their way to becoming tomorrow’s scientific and medical leaders. Other unique features of the center include a state-of-the-art medical library, two auditoriums, seating 75 and 400, and meeting rooms where doctors and researchers can work collaboratively, consulting on cases, sharing information and research with health care professionals around the globe.“This building is the celebration of a generation,” says Marlo Thomas, “and I am proud to stand as a symbol for all of us who heard the stories as children about how our immigrant grandparents came to this country and carved out a life for their families with their own hands. And how they stood shoulder to shoulder with my father as he envisioned this great hospital and became, as he called them, an army of ‘proud beggars’ for the world’s sickest children. That this new center bears my name is a tremendous honor to me, and in accepting it, I vow to continue to be a proud beggar on behalf of children around the world.”Marlo has worked tirelessly for the mission of St. Jude, which was founded by her father, the late entertainer, Danny Thomas. She has created a legacy as a champion for children at St. Jude and around the world as she has appeared in public service announcements, on national television programs and at fundraising events across the country to advance the St. Jude mission. Along with siblings Terre and Tony Thomas, she created the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign that encourages holiday shoppers to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude. Over the past decade, the campaign has raised nearly $500 million for St. Jude children and families.Marlo’s body of work, including her advocacy for patients and families battling childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, recently earned her the nation’s highest civilian honor. She is one of 19 individuals who will be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a ceremony at the White House on November 24, 2014.“This is a historic day for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as we celebrate the opening of this wonderful facility and honor our most dedicated volunteer and advocate, Marlo Thomas,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude. “Marlo’s tireless efforts to share the St. Jude mission have reached millions of supporters and have impacted the lives of countless families and children who have turned to St. Jude in their hour of need.”“One of the guiding principles of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has always been to share discoveries with the global research community to speed progress against childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases,” said James R. Downing, M.D., St. Jude President and Chief Executive Officer. “This center is a brick-and-mortar extension of that philosophy, offering researchers at St. Jude and around the world an innovative space to learn, to share, and to develop the next big advances in science and medicine.”

By Stephen McDermott 18,341 Views Short URL Actors role play during a Critical Incident Simulation Exercise for gardaí at UCC today Source: Gerard McCarthyIn the scenario, one of the intoxicated men had a bleeding head injury, and his friends attempted to have him seen first while they fell around the waiting room.The situation escalated as the parents with a sick baby asked to be seen next, while other patients attempted to be seen.The actors playing members of the public also expressed increasing frustration with the intoxicated students, and began filming the situation before another patient collapsed.The exercise tested communication methods of gardaí, their response to a rapidly escalating critical situation, their ability to understand the risks of such a situation, and how they prioritised their actions.The simulation was based on training given to healthcare providers and aimed to build collaboration between sectors by sharing the resources and expertise between them.The ASSERT Centre’s Research & Education Director Pat Henn welcomed the facility’s hosting of the training exercises.Henn added he was “delighted” that the centre had collaborated with gardaí, saying the project showcased the facility and would achieve excellent results.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A Greek politician is campaigning for the Parthenon Marbles to be returned to Athens as part of the Brexit negotiations between the UK and the European Union. The call comes as the EU and Britain begin talks over what Britain ‘owes’ the European Union in cash terms as it exits the single market, a figure that is likely to be at least £36 billion (A$59 billion).Syriza’s Stelios Kouloglou, a member of the European Parliament, has said that under EU law, European Commission negotiators should raise the issue. Mr Kouloglou, an investigative journalist and creator of the news web channel TVXS, has written to the commission demanding the Marbles’ return to be part of the Brexit negotiations.Speaking to Neos Kosmos Mr Kouloglou said: “British governments are still denying repair the historical injustice. The Parthenon is the symbol of European culture and democracy, not the symbol of looting during occupation and colonialism. “Leaving the European Union, the UK must give back the Marbles to where they belong, to Europe and Greece.” Mr Kouloglou added that it was “time for the United Kingdom to make a European gesture.”Meanwhile the European Commission has poured cold water on the idea, telling media that it did not believe that under EU law the long-running saga should not come under the terms of their negotiating team.Tibor Navracsics, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, said the protection of cultural heritage was primarily the responsibility of EU member states and not the commission.While the European Commission does have a directive on the return of unlawfully removed cultural objects it applies only to objects removed after 1993. Commissioner Navracsics said: “The Parthenon Marbles were removed long before this date, and the EU has no competence in the matter.”
Stay on target Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form There’s no shortage of video game expos out there. From the now-public E3 to the Game Developers Conference to various regional Penny Arcade Expos to the academic exhibits at museums and universities, if you want to go see some cool games and speakers you have options.In fact, there’s a new video game show coming to New York City you can buy tickets for right now, and the name might sound familiar. The inaugural Tribeca Games Festival kicks off Friday, April 28.Since 2002, the Tribeca Film Festival has brought exciting new movies, high-profile members of the international film community, and hundreds of millions of dollars to the Lower Manhattan Tribeca neighborhood. The Tribeca Games Festival, through its partnership with New York video game culture mainstay Kill Screen, wants to do the same thing but for that wonderful intersection of entertainment and technology, we call video games.Headlining this first festival are industry luminaries like Metal Gear’s Hideo Kojima, BioShock’s Ken Levine, and Max Payne’s creator/face model Sam Lake. Festival-goers can watch talks about Overwatch, Firewatch, Watch Dogs, and presumably something else watch-related. Telltale is hosting a crowd-play of its upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy adventure game.Figures from outside the world of gaming will join developers to talk about the best games of last year as well as what’s on the horizon. And since this is part of a film festival, there will be a special 25th-anniversary celebration of the virtual reality cinematic masterpiece The Lawnmower Man. Expect all this and even more (like a Mura Masa concert) the closer we get to the festival.“Tribeca was the first film festival to welcome gaming to the official program,” said Jane Rosenthal, co-founder and Executive Chair of the Tribeca Film Festival in a statement. “Since then, we’ve continued to support the storytellers who have propelled it to become the world’s most popular and growing medium.”The Tribeca Games Festival runs from April 28-29 as part of the Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from April 19-30. The event is open to the public and tickets are available now starting at $40.

Kamina Johnson Smith.This legislation, which will promote and enhance standards of ethical conduct for Parliamentarians, public officials and other persons, was passed with 103 amendments.It makes provisions for the establishment of the Integrity Commission, which will be responsible for investigating alleged or suspected acts of corruption; preventing, identifying and prosecuting corruption; and monitoring the award and discharge of Government contracts and prescribed licences.The new body will have three Directors heading the information and complaints, investigation and corruption prosecution divisions.Among the amendments is the creation of the post of Executive Director to head the proposed Integrity Commission.This Executive Director will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the affairs of the Commission; coordinating the functions of the Commission; ensuring the timely implementation of the decisions and directions of the Commission; and developing and implementing operational policies and procedures in relation to the functions of the Commission.Senator Johnson Smith explained that the Government felt this lone post is a better arrangement than having Directors of the three divisions of the body report directly to the Commissioners, as was previously stipulated in the Bill.The Integrity Commission is to be formed through the merger of the Commission for the Prevention of Corruption, Integrity Commission and the Office of the Contractor General.The Bill will go back to the House of Representatives for approval of the amendments made by the Senate.

Donaldson’s mother spent long hours in the car and out of town caring for her grandmother. A few years later, her other grandmother was diagnosed with cancer. Planning a child’s birthday party was the ball Donaldson’s mother dropped as she juggled responsibilities.Karen Mallory knows what’s like to have children lose their sense of normalcy.Four and a half years ago, Karen’s husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Six months later, Mallory was diagnosed with lobular breast cancer. Her children were 9 and 10 years old at the time and witnessing both parents experience chemotherapy, radiation and surgeries.Now the Battle Ground women are using their experiences with cancer — Donaldson was also diagnosed with skin cancer in 2006 — to help other families struggling with disease.After months of planning, the duo launched the Celebrate Me Foundation in January.

And in August, the organization began accepting applications for services.The crux of the foundation is simple: provide children who are experiencing cancer with a birthday party, a break from cancer diagnoses and treatments.
SUNRISE, FLA. (WSVN) – A nearly $5,000 bike has been returned, Wednesday, after being stolen from a Sunrise bicycle shop over the weekend.The owners of Mega Cycle, Daniel Londono and Cy Maddox, said one of the subjects who was captured on surveillance video the day of the theft, Sunday, later called and lead them right to the stolen merchandise.The suspects allegedly waked into Mega Cycle, Sunday, wearing black but leaving their faces exposed and set their eyes on a pricey bike.After trying out several bikes, they asked to take one out behind the store to test ride it. They then rode away with a $4,500 cycle. “He goes out the back and then, we did notice that the other fella ran out the front door,” Londono said, “so we kinda noticed that, a little iffy.”The man who took the bicycle out back had thrown it into a pickup truck.Related: 2 men posing as customers steal $5K bicycle from Sunrise storeLondono said they received a call Tuesday afternoon from someone who claimed to have stolen the bike. “We got a call. He claimed to be the person who took the bike,” he said. “He said he was very sorry about what he had done. He had no clue why he did what he did.”The caller then instructed the staff to where the bike was. “‘Walk out back; the bike is sitting by the palm tree,’” Londono said. The store owners said they don’t think this was any kind of mistake. “To be honest, I really don’t believe a word he said,” Londono said. “You don’t come into a store, play around with the employees for about 45 minutes, leave with a $5,000 product, and then you say you don’t know what you were doing.”Londono said that he’s grateful to everyone who called Crime Stoppers. “Not only the biking community, but the citizens of South Florida,” he said. “Thank you for all the support and calling Crime Stoppers. We got a crazy amount of tips, but we got out product back, and that’s what matters the most.”Police have not confirmed the identity of those subjects caught on camera. They’re still investigating this case.If you recognize either man in this case, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.

Smoke rises from Yarmouk Palestinian camp in Damascus, Syria May 2, 2018. Picture taken on May 2, 2018. Photo : ReutersSending Arab troops to Syria is a possibility that is being discussed by officials from various countries, Egypt’s foreign minister was quoted on Friday as saying.But a foreign ministry spokesman said Sameh Shoukry, who was speaking at a function on Thursday night, was not raising the possibility that Egypt itself might be ready to send forces to Syria, adding that such a decision was subject to constitutional constraints.The Wall Street Journal reported last month that the administration of US president Donald Trump was seeking to assemble an Arab force to replace the US military contingent in Syria.”In regards to the situation in Syria, Shoukry said that the idea of replacing forces with another that may be Arab is a possibility,” Al-Ahram quoted the Egyptian foreign minister as telling journalists.”This proposition is not only being discussed by the media, but also during discussions and deliberations amongst officials of states to look into how these ideas could contribute to stabilising Syria,” he added, according to Al-Ahram.Shoukry did not name the countries discussing the matter. But an Egyptian Foreign Ministry official said Shoukry’s comments did not pertain to Egypt.”The principles that govern sending Egyptian forces outside the country are known to everybody. That won’t happen unless it was in line with constitutional mechanisms, and rules and regulations that have been affirmed more than once, such as cases related to United Nations peacekeeping operations,” said Ahmed Abu Zeid in a statement.Saudi Arabia said last month it was open to sending troops to Syria under wider coalition.Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in a civil war in Syria between rebels seeking to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.Egypt is the most populous country in the Arab World and has the strongest army.A UN advisor said on Thursday millions of civilians were still caught up in the seven-year-old conflict and many who escaped battle zones had to seek shelter in overcrowded camps for the displaced in Idlib in the northwest.
In his mission to make bowling video games more exciting (or, perhaps, to make intimacy less appealing), artist Hye Yeon Nam if offering the world the latest innovation in gaming peripherals–the Kiss Controller. To start playing, grab partner, and shove your tongue down their throat.Here’s the breakdown from Nam, One person has a magnet on his/her tongue and the other person wears the headset. While they kiss, the person who has the magnet on his/her tongue, controls the direction and speed of the bowling ball for 20 seconds. The goals of this game are to guide the ball so that it maintains an average position in the center of the alley and to increase the speed of the ball by moving the tongue faster while kissing I suppose that bowling made sense for the demo. The gameplay is simple and short, so you don’t have to do it for too long–can you image trying to beat Donkey Kong with the thing? You’d definitely start chaffing.
