Gina Haspel the acting Dir CBI

Gina Haspel took over as acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency on Thursday after Mike Pompeo was confirmed by the Senate and sworn in as the new secretary of state. “It is an honor to lead CIA at this critical time,” Haspel said.
She is the first female head of the CIA in the agency’s history. However, she is facing an uphill battle to be confirmed in the Senate as the agency’s permanent director, as veterans from the military and intelligence communities have raised questions about the time she spent overseeing a secret torture site in Thailand.

Kim and Moon more close

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un told his Southern counterpart that he is eager to come to Seoul whenever invited, promising not to interrupt the South’s sleep anymore in an apparent reference to missile tests.
After 10 years of silence, N. KoreaĆ¢€™s Kim wants to talk to South more
South Korean President Moon Jae-in arrived Friday morning in the border village of Panmunjom for his first summit with Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).Moon’s motorcade came to the South Korean side of Panmunjom around 30 minutes before Kim’s scheduled arrival in the border village at 9:30 a.m. local time (0030 GMT).
Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in have concluded the first round of talks out of the two planned for their historic summit on Friday.
Kim, who last week announced an indefinite suspension of all nuclear and missile tests, a major point of irritation between the two Koreas over the last decade, appeared to reassure Moon on the point. As cited by the South Korean official, Kim said he “won’t interrupt your early morning sleep anymore.”
Kim also said he wouldn’t mind visiting the Blue House, the seat of the South Korean government, for more talks, a South representative said during the follow-up press conference.
Moon said that he would like to travel to North Korea, to which Kim responded that his country’s poorly developed traffic system would make such a trip uncomfortable. Moon jumped at the opportunity to promote the possibility of upgrading the North’s railroads, should diplomatic progress succeed.
Kim said he hoped the summit would be a new beginning and bring feasible results, unlike the previous meetings between their countries’ leaders that failed to end a decades-old stalemate.
“I wish for it to be a chance for us to walk forward hand-in-hand while looking toward the future with a determination, instead of outcomes like those in the past that could not be implemented,” Kim told Moon, as cited by Yonhap News Agency.
Moon said he wishes they would strike an agreement and “create a great present for our people and everyone else in the world who wishes for peace.”
Kim repeatedly said he pins high hopes on the summit, which he sees as a chance for reconciliation, “so that the scars between the South and the North could be healed.”
Kim said, “the border line isn’t that high” and “it will eventually be erased if a lot of people pass over it.”
North Korean leader is also gearing up for talks with US President Donald Trump, which would have seemed unthinkable just months ago. The two leaders previously traded insults, and Kim launched an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) which he warned could reach the entire US mainland.

Italian Movies :Istituto Italiano di Cultura New Delhi

Cinema At The Institute: Through the history of Italian films
Focus 3: Italian Road Movies
Why do we like road movies so much? The answer might not be so simple, perhaps it is because road movies respond to our boundary-breaking impulses. In road-movies the main characters (and, therefore, the audiences) can escape from the routine of everyday life and, in doing so, they can change their perspective and evolve.
In this Road Movies focus, we will attempt at tracing a genealogy of the genre, from the pioneering road movies of the Post-World War II to the most recent ones.
We will open the cycle with Dino Risi’s “Il Sorpasso”, a cult movie shot in 1962 and often credited as an inspiration for the most quintessential of American road movies, the legendary Dennis Hopper’s “Easy Rider”.

April26, 2018 (C) Ravinder Singh
First time in my life I have Hope on IP Day that India may in near future become a major R&D Center of the world. This alone shall be$200 Trillion Gain to Indian Economy by 2050 at $6 Trillion additional GDP gain annual average. $6 Trillion addition gain annually is just$4000 per capita annual additional GDP gain for 1500m Population.
Agriculture with USA like Food Processing Industries alone shall contribute additional $2 Trillion to Indian GDP annually.Manufacturing too over $2 Trillion additional contribution annually is modest figure – China manufacturing already has achieved $5 Trillion level presently. Services shall easily exceed $2 Trillion additional GDP gain – all by 2050.
Way back in 1974-75 I topped competitions for Birla, Sriram, Atlas, ISGEC, BST, JAL etc and wanted R&D job – none was serious about R&D. In 1975 in letter to JRD Tata offered to improve TRF plant when I found its Coal Handling Plant need better technology.
Soon 1975 I started ‘Inventing Professionally & Create IPR’ – focus on R&D and get parts of products made to order – assemble them at locations near sales outlets saving on packing and offer Quick Low Cost Service also.
My inventions Cover all segments of Economy – Agriculture, Industry & Services. I was inventing in 1975 for Industry, worked at BST, BTPS & CPWD, 1978 was made virtual CEO of a Water Supply Installation on Eve of Morarji Desai visit for few hours when residents were not getting water for a week – corruption resumed like before after went away. 1991 was managing family owned farm – getting much more yield than average – Sowing Sunflower in 2-3 hour when Punjab Agricultural University procedure required 12 days. Maximizing Yield, Minimizing Irrigation and saving time to raise third crop.
All offices & companies from Rashtrapati Bhavan/ Prime Minister or RIL must have Chief Technical Officers. [Other than Unqualified Advisers]
At an even in 1990 I had OBSERVED – ‘India’s GDP Contribution is 2% of World Economy 98% of Economic Activity is outside India – India Should Target Serving 98% Market.’
India need 1 million R&D Centers employing 10m R&D Staff.

1.      All Government Departments at Center & State including Honorable President, PM, CMs, CJI, CJ of High Courts – Companies with over Rs.100 Cr Annual Turnover to Have Chief Technical Officers.
2.      1000 R&D Centers with Rs.10 Cr to Rs.100 Cr Bank Support for Developing Products & Services for GLOBAL MARKET – out of 1m R&D Centers for India in 5 years.
3.      PSU Banks to STOP LENDING to Low Value add Companies & Businesses, like Gems & Jewelry, Trade – have huge profit margins, Recycle Investment in hours for Vegetable Trade to few days – can afford Private or NBFC Loans. SUPPORT HIGH VALUE ADDED ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES – AGRICULTURE, FOOD PROCESSING, MANUFACTURING, HOUSING, MULTI-PURPOSE DAMS, TRUCK HIGHWAYS, etc.
4.      Abolish ‘THEKEDARI SYSTEM’ – All Private & Public Contracts to go to ‘Professionally Led Companies with Proven Track records.’
5.      Support Foreign Companies to OPERATE in India in every activity Freely except Defence. Let them build ‘20,000 Km Bullet Train Network’ Purely on Commercial Considerations – No Political Patronage.
