Now the 2nd game is very important for both teams especially for New Zealand (NZ) team who could not manage to win the single game here on this tour.

Best economical pick – Hardik Pandya received his ODI cap from one of the greatest all-rounders in the history of the game – Kapil Dev and incidentally it was the same day Kapil made his debut in India 38 years ago. A man of the match on a special day made it a perfect debut for the Baroda man. In Dharamsala, India might have witnessed the emergence of Pandya the bowler

Top captains & vice captains – In the first ODI, it was Kohli who hit the winning six, coming down the track and smashing Sodhi for a straight six! India takes the 1-0 lead in style, with Kohli continuing his golden form by hitting an unbeaten 85. All the kiwi batsmen struggled to get runs except Tom Latham and Southee.

BENGALURU: Karnataka, which is grappling with a garbage glut, has mooted 3R Environmental Parks for the 219 urban local bodies, including Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).
Based on the three principles of reducing, reuse and recycle, these 3R Environmental Parks will be developed and operated on the lines of the software parks that dot Bengaluru and other parts of the state. An order to this effect was issued last week by the department of forest, environment, and ecology and the government is expected to make a formal announcement soon.
“These parks will offer integrated solutions for all municipal solid waste (garbage) disposal problems,” a senior IAS officer told TOI. At present, around 8,700 tons of garbage are generated in the state every day: while BBMP generates 3,500 tons per day , the remaining 218 urban local bodies churn out about 5,200 tons daily. The situation will only worsen in the coming years as population growth projections for 2032 predict a three-fold increase in waste generation from the present level.
In fact, the urban local bodies are already finding it difficult to handle garbage because of insufficient infrastructure and obsolete technology . “Moreover, resistance has been mounting from locals against setting up of solid waste processing units in their areas. It was in this backdrop that the 3R parks were mooted; these will house all private and public waste processing units with all environmental safeguards in place. These parks will be in tune with the Solid Waste Management Rules 2011, notified by the Centre,” the officer added.
To start with, 10 such parks will be set up on 100-acre plots each. While three such parks will be developed around Bengaluru (beyond 10km radius) the remaining seven will be established in other city municipal councils. The waste-to-energy plant proposed by Karnataka Power Corporation Limited at Bidadi will be converted into a 3R Environmental Park by acquiring an additional 25 acres of land.
These parks will be developed by the Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation (KUIDFC) and maintained by Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB). Wherever government land isn’t available, the authorities are entitled to acquire private land for these projects. The government will extend financial concessions to waste processing units as per the Swachh Bharat Mission. This apart, 4(g) exemption under the Karnataka Transparency in Public Procurement (KTTP) Act 1999 will be given to waste-to-energy units with handling the capacity of 100 tons per day and established under a PPP model.
ALL IN ONE PLACE
Every 3R park will come up on a 100-acre plot beyond a radius of 10km from the municipal boundary. These parks shall have a buffer area that’s at least 100 meters wide. They’ll have compound walls of sufficient height and the buffer zone will be earmarked for the forest department to plant trees having dense green foliage. The small-scale recycling, segregating and reuse units that are functioning in the city will be relocated to these parks. Segregation, waste-to-energy plants, composting units, bio mechanisation plants, incinerators, briquette plants, e-waste processing units, paper, plastic, glass, rubber, metal recycling units, effluent treatment plants will be set up in these parks.
For years now, Bengaluru has been struggling with its garbage, with no solution in sight. The growing muck piles are not just defacing the city, but also repeatedly highlighting the government and BBMP’s inability to address the issue. If implemented in earnest, these environmental parks could wipe Bengaluru clean of its murky image. The startup city’s software parks are its defining structures. Similarly, these 3R Environmental Parks could redefine the image of a city that has, sadly, turned from a Garden City to a Garbage City. What’s needed is concerted effort, timely implementation and a commitment to see the project through.

former software engineer from India, who claimed he was paid less than Americans, working for the Indian technology services company Accenture, has settled a class-action suit before it went to trial, with the company agreeing to pay up to $500,000.
Details were yet to come in of the case which Accenture settled out of court, according to documents filed in New York state court. However, the case has wider ramifications pertaining to the 85,000 H-1B visas given out every year, including 20,000 for students who graduate from US universities.
The Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has given ample hints in his campaign speeches that he wants to shut down the H-1B visa program for foreign workers, or at least to modify it so that it does not allow American workers to be replaced by cheaper foreign labor.
By settling the case with the software engineer from India, Accenture seems to have given some basis to Trump’s allegations. A class action suit if it had gone forward would likely have brought up more such cases to light.
Accenture has been in the legal spotlight over the past few years.
Last year, H. B. Fuller Co. won a $12.8 million arbitration case against Accenture, after a fallout over contract obligations in implementation of new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. An arbitrator in Minneapolis also ruled that H.B. Fuller did not owe another $1.4 million in fees, bringing total damages to more than $14 million.
In 2001, Accenture paid the United States government $63.675 million to resolve a lawsuit regarding fraud, illegal commissions (kickbacks), and rigged bids.
The lawsuit by the Justice Department alleged that Accenture submitted or caused to be submitted false claims for payment under numerous contracts with agencies of the United States for information technology services.

Bhubaneswar: Software engineer Rakesh Pattnaik, who went missing in Mahendra Taneya river at Paralakhemundi while taking a selfie on Wednesday, was found dead a day later. The rescue teams of police and fire brigade fished out his body from the water in the morning.
This is perhaps the first official selfie death in the state. On September 26, engineering student Subhendu Nayak was seriously injured after he came in contact with an overhead live wire near Mancheswar railway station while posing for a selfie atop a goods train.
Babuli Nayak, inspector-in-charge of Paralakhemundi police station, said: “Pattnaik and his friend was taking selfies after climbing onto the branch of a tree which was jutting over the river. Accidentally he slipped and fell into the river. We tried a lot to trace him, but to no avail.”
The mishap took place close to B N Palace, a popular tourist hangout in town. Police said Pattnaik, who was working in a top IT company in Bangalore and had come to his native in Gajapati district for Dussehra, had first taken some selfies with his friend in the palace before trying a different shot and thereby plunging to his death.

Bhondsi jail, life term imprisonment, life sentence, wife murder, online jail, jail information, jail software, online jail software, Shri Ram College of Commerce, indian express news, india news, punjab newsA 36-year-old inmate at Bhondsi jail — serving a life sentence for the murder of his wife in 2007 — proved to be an asset for employees at the facility after he managed to tweak a software, sanctioned by the government for use at the prison, so that it gave them all the information they needed “in a single click”.
Rohit Pagare, who is a Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) alumni and a chartered accountant by qualification, has been lodged at the prison for the last “eight or nine years”.
Harinder Singh, Superintendent of the Prison, describes him as an “outstanding” inmate and says Pagare tweaked the software at the recommendation of staff at the facility. The software, which was earlier only used to mark attendance, now also provides information about an employee’s career history, such as his earlier postings, awards appreciating his work, charge sheets against him, as well as the terms of his current posting, including the number of leaves he has taken and his attendance.
“He has modified the software so that it is like an electronic service book for us, where we can get all the information we need in a single click. It has reduced our workload, and also helped to fix accountability,” said Singh.
According to Singh, the original version of the software, made by the National Information Centre (NIC), is currently in use in all departments in the state for marking biometric attendance. “We had also started the same at our facility, but there were some issues with it. A normal office works in a 9 to 5 shift, but in our case, there are no such fixed hours,” said Singh.
In 2013, Pagare had assisted another inmate, Amit Mishra, a software engineer who was later acquitted, in making a prison management software called Phoenix. This was later among the four approved by the Ministry of Home Affairs for use in the prison department.
“Since Pagare already had some experience with that kind of work, we suggested he modify this software as per our requirements,” said Singh.
Pagare started working on the software in December and by February, it had been implemented on a trial basis at Bhondsi jail. Authorities intend to extend its use and implement it within the prison department across the state within the next six months, said Singh.Minor kills schoolmate

PM Modi on Pakistan:
Today I am speaking to the people Pakistan directly.
From the leaders who read speeches written by terrorists, the world can expect nothing. But I want to speak to the people of Pakistan directly.
I want to remind Pakistan, before 1947, your ancestors used to consider undivided India their land, worshiped it. And in their memory, I want to tell you something.
The people of Pakistan please ask your leaders, you have PoK. You cannot manage it.
Bangladesh used to be yours, you couldn’t manage it. You cannot manage Gilgit, Baltistan, Pakhtun, Balochistan, Sindh…and you are talking about Kashmir.
People of Pakistan must ask their leaders to first give secure lives to their citizens.
People of Pakistan ask your leaders, Both our countries got freedom together. Why do India export software and your country export terrorists?
I want to tell the people of Pakistan to confuse you, your leaders have worked for ages. I am ready to face that challenge.
I want to tell the people, If you have what it takes, lets compete to end poverty in our countries.
Lets see who gets there first. People of Pakistan and India will like this competition.
The youth of Pakistan, come lets fight. Lets see who ends unemployment first – India or Pakistan.
Lets fight against illiteracy. Newborns, pregnant mothers die in both India and Pakistan. Lets see who can save them first.
And leaders of Pakistan hear this. The sacrifice of 18 of our soldiers will not go in vain.
India has succeeded in isolating you in the world. We will ramp it up and force you live alone in the world.
That day is not far when people of Pakistan will get in the fray to fight against their leaders and terrorists.
My dear countrymen, the future of our nation is connected to peace and good thoughts.
Our country wins when we stand together, say in one voice, have one resolution.
Today 1.25 billion Indians are ready to pay any price for our pride and peace. That’s why I see a glorious future for India.
My dear countrymen, on Deen Dayal Upadhyay’s birth anniversary we have decided to re-dedicate ourselves to work for the poor.
In the 21st century, our goal should be that India should be free from poverty, full of prosperity.
India should aim to be- Free from injustice, land of justice, Free from filth, land of cleanliness, free from corruption, land of transparency, free from unemployment, land of employment.
India should be- Free from crimes against women, land of dignity for women, free from disappointment, land of hope.
On Deen Dayal Upadhyay’s birth anniversary let these are our guiding goals.
PM Modi on terrorism:
We’ve been hearing it for a while – the 21st century is Asia’s century. And Asia has all it takes to achieve that.
But there is one country in Asia that is working towards thwarting that vision.
It is doing all it can to ensure Asia is bloodied, it is bruised by violence, falls prey to terror.
Wherever terrorism is happening in Asia, the blame is on one country.
Not just India, every country in Asia believes this. One country is exporting terror everywhere.
Afghanistan, Bangladesh, all neighboring countries and in the world, wherever a terror attack takes place.
It emerges either the terrorist set out from here or after the attack, like Osama Bin Laden, took refuge here.
Brothers and sisters, people of Kerala know what terrorism looks like.
Kerala’s daughters, nurses, were taken away by terrorists. Entire India was tensed.
But entire Kerala saw, how the government in Delhi returned the daughters of Kerala to their homes.
Terrorism is an enemy of humanity. Humanitarians all over the world have to unite and condemn terror.
India never has and never will bow down to terror, it will defeat terror.
The entire country is seeing the effects of terror.
In Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri, 18 soldiers had to sacrifice their lives.
Let terrorists hear this, India will never forget this Page Design Web.
In the last few months, 17 times terrorists in groups of 4 or 6 have tried crossing the border to spread destruction.
But our brave soldiers thwarted those efforts, they slew them on the LoC.
In the last few months, our soldiers have killed 110 terrorists – the highest in recent years.
Saving the countries from these 17 possible attacks was done by our soldiers, they stood guard and secured our citizens, we are proud of their service, their sacrifice.
You can imagine, the neighboring country succeeded in one attack and 17 soldiers had to fall prey.
If they had succeeded in all 17 incidents what would have happened?
Our soldiers, our police, all our security forces have won these battles not just because of the weapons. Weapons are toys.
Soldiers win on confidence, and India’s confidence is flying at its highest. This is our strength.
Leaders of the neighboring country said will fight 1,000 years, where did they disappear, we cant see them anymore.
And today’s leaders, they read speeches written by terrorists and singing about Kashmir.

PM Modi on BJP Ideology:
In the last century, India’s political life was influenced by three people, Mahatma Gandhi, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and Ram Manohar Lohia.
When elected members of the NDA chose me as their leader and when I gave the first speech on the floor of the Parliament, I had said this government is dedicated to the poor.
This comes from the thinking of Mahatma Gandhi and Deen Dayal Upadhyay. Our directive is based on their ideology.
And I want to assure BJP workers of Kerala, the service you have given, the injustices you have endured, the sacrifices you have made will not go in vain.
They will bear fruit and the BJP will herald progress in Kerala.
Kerala has all the capability to become India’s top state.
The BJP and the Indian government will be ready to all it takes to make this happen.
India is moving forward with one mantra- Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas.
The whole world recognizes India to be the world’s fastest-growing major economy.
