Representative image. Mining mogul Anil Agarwal-led Vedanta’s entry into the semiconductor business marks yet another attempt by India to become a global chip maker after failed attempts over the past four decades. India continues to aspire to become a semiconductor hub and attract electronics ecosystem players across the value chain including manufacturers of highly sophisticated and sensitive equipment, material (high purity gases, chemicals, wafers, photo-masks), and equipment service providers. The Covid-19 pandemic triggered lockdowns and restrictions globally that resulted in a shortage of semiconductor chips and that spurred India’s ambitions to become a hub for chips, which are used in a range of consumer electronic products such as mobile phones, laptops and cars. To accelerate its plans, India unveiled a $10 billion incentive programme for semiconductor and display manufacturers in December last year. The government also approved modifications in the programme … [Read more...] about India’s power play in semiconductor business – a ticket to becoming global?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The current financial disruptions in markets may not make for an optimal time to carve up a storied Hollywood brand and launch a new public company, but don’t say that to Technicolor Creative Studios CEO Christian Roberton. Tuesday morning, on Paris’ Euronext exchange, TCS launches as a pure-play creative-services firm under the ticker TCHCS. “If anything, this is Technicolor going back to its roots, a pure-play basic entertainment company,” said Roberton. “To me, it perfectly describes the origins of Technicolor. We're coming out at a time when the demand for our services is at an all-time high. There was never such demand for the type of work that we do.” That work is providing visual effects and related post-production services for four distinct sectors of entertainment: movies/TV/streaming, advertising, animation, and gaming, handled respectively by MPC, The Mill, Mikros Animation, and a new Technicolor Games unit. … [Read more...] about Technicolor Creative Studios Spins Off As Pure-Play VFX Company In Ads, Games, Movies And More
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin During a recent conversation, someone living in an affluent New York suburb mentioned their concern about traveling into midtown Manhattan using the Metro North system, and having to switch to the subway at the Harlem station on 125 th Street. Their fear was that, as older white people, they could be an attractive target for would-be muggers. Having lived in Harlem for a decade, I have become accustomed to people’s surprised reaction when I tell them where I live, and the inevitable questions about whether—being a white man—I feel safe living there. I can attest that these concerns and negative perceptions are misplaced: Harlem is a great place to live and it is very safe. I have never been mugged or felt threatened by anyone, have never had anything stolen, and can walk around safely at any time of day or night. After the recent conversation mentioned above, I became curious about the actual risk of being the victim of … [Read more...] about Leaders Should Collect DEI Data Because Harlem Is Safer Than Midtown Manhattan
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin What’s the most undervalued but vital industry globally? If healthcare comes to mind, think again, nearly 8 billion people worldwide have to eat, every day, to stay alive. Farmers may not often be front and centre as some of the most important people on the planet, but any serious disruption to the food industry brings into sharp focus where the true value of land-tillers lies. In June this year, the World Bank designated $2.3 billion to help combat growing food insecurity after the war in Ukraine dramatically pushed up food price inflation globally, triggering a food export ban in 21 countries as nations seek to shore up their own supplies – further exacerbating issues of food supply chains. To compound the crisis, extreme dry and wet weather conditions – a key feature of climate change – have dealt further devastating blows to farmers and food security. From Europe to Africa, to large areas of southern China … [Read more...] about Matches Made In Produce Heaven Promise A Happily Ever After For The Planet
