ASUS unveil Eee Pad


ASUS Technology, a leading international
brand embodying the strength, mastering technological innovation and design
perfection for the ultimate life-enhancing and computing experience, has
unveiled its long anticipated Eee Pad Transformer Prime, paired and primed
to Perfection, powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3.
The impressive Eee Pad Transformer Prime is available with 10.1" WXGA Glare
(LED), focusing on user experience and aesthetics more than the previous
offering. To develop this state of the art product, ASUS development team
focused on four key incredible principles that guided the development team
during the designing phase of Transformer Prime. The metallic spun finish
on the ultra-slim and light Transformer Prime sets a new benchmark in the
art of tablet design. Only 8.3 mm thin and 586g light, the Transformer
Prime re-defines the rule of the mobile life, making it expedient to carry
and transport.

The first tablet to use the NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-Core CPU, the Transformer
Prime browses the web and plays 1080p HD video at blazing speeds. The Tegra
3 also empowers the Transformer Prime to deliver a gaming experience
comparable to that of a game console. Tegra 3 enables up to 61 percent
lower power consumption. This translates into an industry-leading 12 hours
of battery life for HD video playback. The snappier response time and
better multi-tasking performance make the Transformer Prime a true mobile
entertainment powerhouse.

The Transformer Prime is equipped with the most advanced CMOS sensor and a
large aperture design to ensure sufficient light exposure and the ability
to defocus the background and put emphasis on the object, making your
photos bright and clear. With the high speed auto-focus and color
enhancement design, the Transformer Prime can capture a clear and vivid
image.
The Transformer Prime offers a choice to enjoy both notebook mode and
tablet mode with the optional mobile dock. The mobile dock offers a full
QWERTY keyboard with touchpad and USB port, while also extending battery
life to an incredible 18 hours for all day computing on the go. The Battery
life is measured under power saving mode, playing 720p video playback and
Brightness of 60nits, default volume with headphones.

“The new offering distinguishes itself from the sea of tablets with its
aggressive pricing and an optional accessory that easily transforms it into
a notebook. The preface of ASUS Transformer Prime is a vivid proof of
fundamental transformation that tablets are ushering in the
personal computing space.  It is packed with the security, responsiveness,
and other exciting features, that deliver on the promise of being prime and
to offer the most complete and satisfying computing experience,” *Alex
Huang, Managing Director, Systems Business Group, ASUS Technology Pvt Ltd
(India).*

“Powered to deliver a complete multimedia experience in the palm of your
hands, the Asus Transformer Prime redefines mobile computing. Users of the
ASUS Transformer Prime will be able to enjoy stunning graphics performance
and an amazing battery life with NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor.  The
power of Tegra 3, thus, helps the ASUS Transformer Prime offer a clearly
differentiated value proposition to consumer and will truly ‘transform’ the
way users consume and create content. With changing lifestyles and growing
need to be connected on the go, ASUS has brought to the fore a truly
path-breaking device. We are happy to have partnered with ASUS with our
Tegra 3 quad-core processor to bring this revolutionary new gadget to
Indian consumers,” said "Mr. Vishal Dhupar, Managing Director, NVIDIA,
Asia-South."

Tuned by the ASUS Golden ears team, audio on the Transformer Prime is

GOPIO INITIATES GLOBAL GADAR COMMEMORATION  

GOPIO is taking the initiative for a Gadar Centennial Commemoration for a global commemoration of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Gadar movement in 2013 involving various agencies, organizations and institutions. GOPIO has developed tentative plans and would finalize these plans shortly after the meetings of Centennial Commemoration Committee with invitations to all persons, agencies, organizations and institutions interested in participating in the upcoming centennial event(s) in 2013.

In 1913, the Hindustan Association of the Pacific Coast (USA) was started to free India from the British serfdom. The association started publishing magazine named Gadar to expose the British imperialism and called upon the Indian people to unite and rise up against British rule. The publication Gadar, over a period of time, became well known among Indians and the Hindustan Association of the Pacific Coast itself became known as the Gadar party. In 2003, the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin (GOPIO), the National Federation of Indian American Associations (NFIA) and the Global Punjabi Diaspora jointly organized the 90th anniversary of Gadar movement to pay tribute to the pioneers, patriots and heroes of the Gadar movement.

The plans for the Gadar Centennial Commemoration include participation and support of Office of the Prime Minister of India, Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs; Ministry of External Affairs, Ministry of Culture, UNESCO, State of California, City of San Francisco, as well as Indian civic organizations, institutions, groups and individuals. Plans include: Declare 2013 as the year of Centennial Commemoration of Gadar Movement; Issue a suitably designed postage stamp commemorating the Gadar Movement; Publish a historic Centennial Commemoration book about the Gadar Movement, sacrifices of the Gadar Heroes, brief bio-data (if available) of all the 48 martyrs and 69 Gadarites who were given life imprisonment, for free distribution to libraries, schools, institutions and organizations; Establish chairs in memory of the Gadar heroes in India and at least one or more in the USA. Plans for Gadar Centennial Commemoration 2012/2013 include: Gadar Centennial Commemoration per city: Forum in several cities in USA, Canada, UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, India, with a finale in San Francisco with a fitting memorial as a lasting tribute to the Gadar heroes.

AirAsia Introduces New Lower Price Range for Pre-Booked Meals
 
Description: menuads_f-01
 
SEPANG, 29 FEBRUARY 2012 – AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline will be reducing the prices of its pre-booked in-flight meals regionally effective Thursday, 1 March 2012 with savings up to 30% when booked online at www.airasia.com
 
This good news comes after AirAsia reduced its check-in baggage and sports equipment fees two weeks ago, and it will benefit all AirAsia guests as they are able to enjoy more of AirAsia’s value-added services at lower costs.
 
AirAsia’s Regional Head of Commercial, Kathleen Tan said, “AirAsia always strives to listen to our guests, and take into account their feedback on how we can make their AirAsia experience a better one. In line with our efforts to reduce travel costs and provide more value to our guests, we decided to revise our pre-booked in-flight meal prices as well, apart from the recent reduction of check-in baggage and sports equipment fees. And as a truly Asean airline, we have also continuously improved on our selection of meals on board with tastes from across the region.”
 
Shireen Chia, Regional Head of Catering & In-Flight Service, AirAsia comments, “AirAsia’s commitment is to make all our guests’ flying experience a better one, and one of the grouses we commonly hear is guests not being able to have their preferred meals on board. We hope that the price reduction for online pre-booked meals will encourage more people to pre-book their preferred meals online along with their flight bookings. Not only can they save up to 30% when they pre-book their meals online, but guests can also ensure that they can enjoy their favourite meals on board.”
 
AirAsia’s pre-booked meals consist of a hot meal with a bottle of 100ml mineral water and are now priced at RM7.90 per set for Frankster (chicken hot dog), Cheesy Extravaganza Pizza Wedge, Smoked Chicken Focaccia, Pancakes with Butter and Maple Syrup and Assorted Sandwiches set; RM9.90 per set for the all-time favourite Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak, Uncle Chin’s Chicken Rice, Green Curry Chicken, Asian Fried Rice with Satay, Chicken Satay, Ginger Fried Rice with Vegetarian Chicken, Roast Chicken with BBQ Sauce, Spaghetti Chicken Bolognaise, Vegetarian Pulao Briyani, Bukhara Chicken Briyani. The meals were priced at RM9 and RM12 respectively before the price reduction.
 
The Special Meal of the Month, which features different food highlights every two months based on the various occasions in countries throughout Asean such as Hari Raya, Deepavali, Christmas and Chinese New Year in Malaysia, as well as Songkran festival in Thailand will also be reduced to RM13.90 per set from RM15 previously.
 
AirAsia also added three new items to its pre-book menu line-up with Beef Stew, Tandoori Chicken Tortilla Wrap and Mat Kelapa (fresh coconuts) to suit the appetite of the various nationalities that travel with the world’s best low-cost airline. These new items are also available for pre-booking at only RM9.90 and RM7.90 per set.
 
“Many guests do not know this, but there is now an option to purchase more than one meal when they pre-book it online. This would also lead to more savings for our guests, apart from a guarantee that you will have a great, tummy-filled flight. The new price range is even more affordable than a fast-food meal set, and we hope that our guests will enjoy both the new price as well as the new pre-book menu line-up,” Shireen added.
 
Guests who own the BIG Card will also be rewarded with 2X BIG Points when they pre-book their meals along with their flights. For more information about BIG, please log on to www.tune2big.com
 
Apart from in-flight meals, guests are also able to pre-book their check-in baggage allocation, select their seats via Pick-A-Seat and Hot Seats, travel insurance via AirAsia Insure as well as AirAsia Comfort Kits, amongst others.
 
Guests who have yet to pre-book their meals for their flights are able to do so via ‘Manage My Booking’ at the AirAsia website up to 48 hours before their scheduled flight. Guests are also able to add in all the other value-added services via the same method as well.
 
AirAsia has also recently reduced its processing fees from RM8 per guest per sector, to only RM5 per guest per sector; apart from waiving the counter check-in fees for international bound guests across all of its hubs and stations throughout their route network which spans across 152 routes, 77 destinations and 23 countries.

Brahmaputra dries up in Arunachal Pradesh town! Is China responsible?

ITANAGAR: The Siang ( Brahmaputra) river originating from Tibet was suddenly found to have almost dried up at a town in Arunachal Pradesh, a state government spokesman said on Wednesday night.

People of Pasighat town in East Siang district found the water level of the river receded so much on Wednesday that it almost dried, Tako Dabi said. Dabi, also the political adviser to CM Nabam Tuki, expressed apprehension that China could have diverted the water of the river, which is known as Yarlong Tsangpo in Tibet, or there could be some artificial blockade due to which this has happened.

On June 9, 2000, the water level of Siang rose suddenly by 30 metre and inundated almost the entire township causing widespread destruction to property besides claiming seven lives following the collapse of a hydropower dam in Tibet, said Dabi, who himself inspected the dried bed of the river. Dabi suggested that the Centre and its agencies should immediately conduct a study to find the problem.

The panic of the people can't be brushed off, he said. Yarlung Tsangpo, the highest river in the world, is a water course that originates at Tamlung Tso Lake in western Tibet, southeast of Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar. It later forms South Tibet Valley and Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon, before entering India at Tuting in Arunachal.

Dear NK,
Caught: Taiwanese vessels, pretending to be Indian [1], stealing fish and the livelihoods of Indian fishers.
They are doing this by misusing the Letters of Permit (LoP) scheme. [2]The scheme allows Indian fishing firms to fish in India’s seas, but is being flouted by foreign fishing vessels, mainly from Thailand and Taiwan. These vessels exploit regulatory loopholes so they can fish, often illegally, in India’s seas.
Our seas are losing their health, fishing communities their livelihood, and the government, its revenue. The Ministry of Agriculture, which issues the LoPs, needs to crack-down on this fishing racket. Minister Sharad Pawar needs to act now.
You should ask Minster Sharad Pawar to stop this racket by suspending the LoP scheme because it is destroying the livelihoods of fishing communities and marine ecosystems.
http://www.greenpeace.in/take-action/save-our-oceans/esperanza-in-india.php
So far the ministry has ignored the questions raised on its faulty LoP scheme. The strength of the petition depends on the number of signatures on it. Lakhs of people demanding action will show them that the issue has not gone unnoticed and needs to be sorted.
There is enough evidence for the Minister to take action. The country’s fish stock, marine habitats and the livelihood of millions need to be protected.
Ask the Ministry of Agriculture to act now!

Thanks a billion!

CzechTourism India
European Quartet countries are gearing up to attract Indian visitors
Delhi, 28 February 2012
CzechTourism in India commenced a new season by organising an annual roadshow for four Central European countries under the brand European Quartet – Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Events held in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Delhi hosted till now the largest representation of these upcoming European countries. Over four days 23 suppliers and representatives met more than 300 Indian tour operators and agents.
The roadshow was a great opportunity for trade partners to present new tourist products, to open a new platform for new business ties and strengthening already ongoing collaborations. The increase interest about the Czech Republic thanks to the release of the Rockstar movie shot in Prague in 2010 have facilitate the major awareness about the destination not only among the travel trade but especially among the travellers. “The Czech Republic Tourist Authority - CzechTourism is already seriously focused on promoting the Czech Republic to Indian visitors since the end of 2010.  Already during 2011 we have seen a progressive growth, and all the indicators are showing that this trend will continue in the upcoming middle term period. I believe that presenting all four countries in the wider perspective of the Central European region, will definitely help to improve the awareness and to intensify the ongoing promotion of the Czech Republic”, said Radka Neumannova, director of CzechTourism in India.
The Indian travel industry in fact predicts the shift of interest to the new and less explored European destinations like Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. The initiatives to present the region under the unique brand of European Quartet was highly appreciated by travel trade. The growing potential of Indian market has been as well recognised by many european suppliers, which have confirmed to conduct individual sales missions to India to strengthen their positions and partnerships on Indian market. H.E. Mr. Miloslav Stasek Ambassador of the Czech Republic to India said, „During the last year we have witnessed the growing interest of Czech companies to enter an Indian market, and this trend is also reflecting in the tourism industry. In fact this year the delegation of DMC´s and hotels on the mission in India has double the number of participants in comparison with last years. Indian growing economical potential brings more and more tourist to European countries and the Czech Republic is definitely an attractive option not only for leisure but also for business travellers. The collaboration of Central European countries under the brand of European Quartet has proven to be effective as it allows effectively target the potential travellers and as well bring more strength to the marketing efforts.”
While leisure travellers is a typical segment for all the four countries, over past year there has been a significant growth of MICE and business events in the European Quartet countries. India definitely ranks among the most important markets for all countries of European Quartet, and to develop that potential there other marketing activities will be conducted during 2012 – particularly study tours, marketing campaigns focused on the promotion of all European Quartet countries and as well of the Czech Republic.

The Nearly 100 acre project Golfforeste from the table of Paramount group has always kept quality as the top most priority and has moved dedicatedly to provide a World class experience- from luxurious villas and studio apartments to a Behemoth show like the one talked above. This is what engages us with our investors and patrons as we strive hard to excel.
Mr. Ashwani Prakash, Executive Director, Paramount Group said, “Today, the world is becoming so congested and people are unable to find a proper space to live.

Golfforeste is an example of the same green residency. This infrastructure is a dream project of Paramount Group which will give its customers green lush environment from a combination of golf course and a parallel forest with it.
