PM Modi addressing the Indian diaspora in Munich, Germany, on June 26 (Image: Twitter/@DDNews) India is leading the "way of innovation", with one unicorn emerging in the country at every 10 days, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on June 26 in Germany's Munich, where he addressed members of the Indian community. "There was a time when India was nowhere in the race of startups. Today, we are the third-largest startup ecosystem. Similarly, we used to import even the simplest phones, today, we are the second-largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world," he said. "Not only this, in India, on an average, we have a ‘unicorn’ every 10 days," Modi added. The spirit of innovation is evident in all parts of the country, Modi claimed, noting that an average of 5,000 patents are filed every month in India.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Elvis opened strong this weekend with a $30.5 million Fri-Sun debut right alongside Top Gun: Maverick’s shockingly huge (also $30.5 million) fifth-weekend gross. Regardless of which film topped the domestic box office when the final figures drop tomorrow, they are both winners. I’ll discuss the Tom Cruise-led sequel later, but the Tom Hanks co-starring music biopic benefited from the former. Some of the best marketing a movie can have is a good trailer playing before a smash hit aimed at similar demographics. Think the Deep Impact teaser attached to Titanic or the Zootopia DMV spot playing before The Force Awakens . With all the pre-summer concern that older, irregular audiences (Elvis Presley isn’t exactly still huge with the kids) wouldn’t show up, the Warner Bros. flick got a last-minute shot in the arm when Top Gun: Maverick soared past $520 million domestic partially thanks to older and irregular moviegoers. … [Read more...] about Box Office: ‘Elvis’ Rocks $31 Million Debut As ‘Black Phone’ Grabs $23 Million
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin As the terrifying words and shocking photos showing fierce fires destroying thousands of acres of land flooded social media, it was hard to not feel helpless. The over 50 mph winds assisted the fire in covering so much ground in such a short time that people who thought they were out of harm’s way would quickly realize within the same hour that they needed to evacuate as soon as possible. The direction of the wind changed constantly making it impossible for anyone within Napa Valley and Sonoma County to know if they were truly safe, as fleeing one’s home had many downsides since temporarily living in a crowded community center seemed to be a torturous alternative, or much worse, one could accidentally drive into the heart of one of the fast and furious fires, trapped with no way out. Many living outside of northern California stayed glued to the internet to see if friends or colleagues in the wine industry were doing okay. … [Read more...] about Woman From India Leads As Winemaker At Beloved Napa Winery To Build A Better Tomorrow After Tragedy
Kim Jong-jin The author is assistant director-general and regional representative of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. It wasn’t so long ago that internet connectivity faded the moment one left a populated area like a city or big town. “No service” was the take-away message back then. But thanks to 3G, 4G and now 5G mobile technology — and coupled with the widespread installation of cellular towers in rural areas across the country — the frustrating message shows up much less frequently. Most importantly, the rapid spread of internet connectivity and mobile telephony has resulted in countless opportunities to help address chronic problems such as poverty, malnutrition and inequality after the service reached into the most remote rural communities. From farmers to fishers to herders, digital technologies are increasingly relied upon to help transform and enhance livelihoods for hundreds of millions of people each day. From farmers with their … [Read more...] about Leaving no one behind in digitization

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin It’s well established that urban environments are going to be home to the majority of the world’s population in the coming decades. While extreme weather is causing floods, droughts and wildfires, it’s also going to have significant effects on urban living. The increasing temperatures the media is discussing, from heat waves across India, the US, Spain and Germany, Doha at 49°C or Jacobabad at 51°C, mean that we must find new ways to protect city dwellers from the worst impacts of a changing environment. According to Lauren Sorkin, executive director of the Resilient Cities Network, cities have the potential to address climate change but they need a rethink in terms of how they keep people safe and build in equity and resilience. Sorkin argues we also need to agree on a common set of risks – and be honest about the level of risk we face. It’s important to remember that cities themselves are major infrastructure investors and … [Read more...] about As Climate Change Threatens Mounting Urban Costs, Is Biomimicry The Way Forward?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin When the German government announced in late 2021 its plan to legalize recreational cannabis sales in Germany , experts and cannabis enthusiasts put great expectations on the so-called "traffic light" government's plan to regulate the industry. Although Germany and other European countries focused in recent months on the war in Ukraine following the Russian invasion in February and the resulting efforts to detach themselves from Russian energy dependence, German officials had time to speed up the process of legalizing recreational cannabis . The consultation process Commissioner for Addiction and Drug Issues Burkhard Blienert officially announced on July 13 the kickoff of the first of five expert hearings to prepare for the planned legislative process to legalize recreational cannabis. More than 200 leading German and international experts will exchange their views on the legalization.

Every year, around the world, tens of thousands of small businesses are badly disrupted by natural disasters (and sometimes man made disasters). I know that in Australia alone, we face fire, floods and cyclones constantly. The cost both financially and emotionally is huge. Businesses can be disrupted for anything from a few days to a few months. So what should you do to when disaster hits your business? 1. Start by setting up communication to the outside world. The first step in the rebuilding process is to make sure you are connected to the outside world and this normally means a working telephone and an email connection. It might mean hiring some computer equipment or getting your mobile phone set up for internet connection (if you haven't already. Even setting up a TV in your building helps to make you feel connected to the rest of the world. 2. Break the rebuilding process into smaller, more manageable chunks When standing in a devastated office, … [Read more...] about Your Business has Been Damaged or Destroyed by a Natural Disaster, What now?
If there's even the slightest silver lining to the pandemic , it's clearly that it has given millions of Americans permission to make radical changes in their attitudes toward their work ; in their behaviors toward their family, friends, and others; and in their philosophies going forward as to what exactly they're hoping that life will bring them. Ideally these will be changes for the better. Changes that will endure once the world returns to whatever the new normal may be. But nothing will improve if these folks just sit around and wait for things to happen to them as opposed to seizing the moment and making those things happen for them and their businesses. As Ayn Rand said: "The world you desired can be won." While no one is entitled to a perfect life, it seems that many of us now possess once-in-a-lifetime, remarkable, and previously unavailable (or at least unimagined) levels of power and agency to alter our lives -- hopefully in positive directions -- and to … [Read more...] about Five Keys to Personal Growth in the Great Pandemic Do-Over
