No communication on H1B visa cap from US says Commerce ministry

first_imgNew Delhi: The commerce ministry has not received any communication from the US on its reported decision to consider caps on H-1B work visa for nations that mandate storing of data locally, sources said. India had last year mandated payment firms to store customer data exclusively in the country without creating a mirror sites overseas. Some US firms are opposed to this as it would require them to make additional investment. Irked by such requirements, the US is considering restrictions on H-1B visa that allow foreign professionals to work in that country, a report said.last_img read more

Manitoba First Nations to regain control of southern childwelfare organization

first_img(Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross)The Canadian PressWINNIPEG – An announcement was expected as early as Tuesday on a new seven-person board of First Nations people who will regain control of a southern Manitoba child-welfare organization. The Manitoba government was also expected to cancel its order appointing an administrator to run the Southern Authority, which oversees 10 frontline agencies and about 4,500 children in care. The authority has been under provincial control for more than three years, sparked by a dispute between Manitoba’s top chiefs and the organization over whether chiefs could sit on its board. The matter was before a court in the fall of 2012 when the board fell below levels allowed by legislation, forcing the province to step in and take over. No chiefs will sit on the new board but have vetted its members, who include an education expert, a former senior child-welfare official and two former band councillors. The new board was to meet Tuesday with the Southern Authority’s new acting CEO, Tara Petti. The provincial takeover essentially stripped First Nations of any direct authority over child welfare, a key element of devolution, which was meant to hand over responsibility of child-welfare programs to Indigenous people. Many First Nations leaders, including current Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs Grand Chief Derek Nepinak, have argued that democratically elected band chiefs ought to have some say in the running of a key public service on their reserve. Others, including senior child welfare officials, worried chiefs might be prone to interfere in specific cases for political gain. “To me that was a really sad day, that we got to that point,” said Family Services Minister Kerri Irvin-Ross of the province’s takeover. Southern Grand Chief Terry Nelson said he hopes the new board pushes to keep far more children on reserve rather than sending them to Winnipeg or other cities for foster care. He expressed skepticism of a child-welfare system that was imposed on First Nations people, even under the guise of devolution. “This is an interim step,” said Nelson of the Southern Authority’s new board. “But legitimizing someone else’s system isn’t the way to go.” The province took over the Northern Authority more than a year ago, saying it wasn’t keeping proper track of children in care and wasn’t moving quickly enough on key recommendations from the Phoenix Sinclair inquiry. Irvin-Ross said she hopes the northern organization comes out of administration this spring. She said the province is finalizing a memo with northern chiefs that will outline the steps the authority must follow in order to be transferred back to a First Nations board.last_img read more

Heap leach breakthrough in lithiumboron extraction at Rhyolite Ridge project in the

first_imgAustralian-based lithium/boron developer Global Geoscience Ltd (GSC) reports that extensive acid-leach test work at its 100%-owned Rhyolite Ridge lithium-boron project in Nevada, has shown that lithium and boron can be readily extracted by simple heap leach processing with high recoveries.“This is an exceptional result and a very significant breakthrough as we are not aware of any other lithium deposit where heap leach processing has been successfully demonstrated. Rhyolite Ridge’s unique combination of minerals and low clay content is the key to efficiently recovering lithium and boron via heap leaching,” explained GSC Managing Director Bernard Rowe.In an industry first, GSC has successfully demonstrated heap leach processing of Rhyolite Ridge lithium-boron mineralisation by achieving lithium and boron recoveries of 88-92%Rapid leach times at ambient temperature with moderate acid consumption ratesHeap leach processing provides substantially lower operating and capital costs compared to other forms of acid-leach processing as grinding, flotation, filtration and leach tanks are not requiredGlobal’s Rhyolite Ridge is believed to be the only known lithium deposit in the world that has been demonstrated to be amenable to simple heap leach processing, reinforcing it as a credible alternative to spodumene and brine deposits as a major, low-cost and long-term source of lithiumFurther metallurgy and mining studies are in progress, with engineering studies about to commence. All are part of the company’s Rhyolite Ridge PFS.The project lies 25 km west of Albermarle’s Silver Peak lithium mine and 340 km from the Tesla Gigafactory near Reno.Lithium-boron mineralisation is hosted within two sedimentary basins located 4 km apart: South Basin (9 km²) and North Basin (20 km²). The minerals in the host rocks are dominated by the searlesite (boron-bearing), sepiolite (lithium-bearing), K-feldspar, calcite and dolomite.At South Basin, high-grade lithium-boron mineralisation occurs in 20 to 50 m thick, sub-horizontal sedimentary layers. The upper-most layer is 20 to 30 m thick and outcrops along the western margin of South Basin over a strike length of approximately 3 km.Drilling at South Basin has defined an Indicated and Inferred Resource of 460 Mt at 0.9% Li2CO3 and 2.6% H3BO3), containing 4.1 Mt of lithium carbonate and 11.9 Mt of boric acid. The Resource is open in most directions and is likely to increase in size with additional drilling.The Mineral Resource includes a high-grade lithium-boron zone of 137 Mt at 0.9% Li2CO3 and 7.2% H3BO3, with 75% in the Indicated category.last_img read more

Driver detained in Spain train derailment death toll lowered to 78

first_imgLONDON — The driver of the train that derailed in northwest Spain, which killed or injured more than 200 people, has been formally detained and will be questioned by authorities, Spanish police said Friday.Francisco Jose Garzon Amo is in the hospital recovering from injuries sustained in the wreck, said Jaime Iglesias, head of Spain’s National Police in the region of Galicia. Once doctors give the go-ahead, investigators are expected to quiz Garzon Amo about the circumstances surrounding the accident, Iglesias told reporters.Spain’s Interior Ministry, which had put the death toll at 80, revised that figure downward slightly Friday to 78 as coroner’s officials strove to identify the remains of bodies badly mutilated in Wednesday’s disaster. Several other passengers remain in critical condition, and the number of fatalities could yet rise.Authorities are eager to hear Garzon Amo’s account of why the train appeared to be traveling at what some passengers described as extremely high speed as it rounded a curve near the town of Santiago de Compostela. Footage from a security camera showed the train hurtling around the bend, then jumping clear of the tracks and smashing into a wall.The Associated Press reported that the speed limit on that stretch of track was about 50 mph but that analysis of the video suggested the train was barreling along at more than twice that speed. Authorities are expected to analyze the data stored in the train’s “black box” to determine details of the train’s operation in the moments leading up to the derailment.last_img read more

The Senate Health Care Vote Simplified

first_imgJohn Holcroft/Getty Images/Ikon ImagesThe debate over health care overhaul continues in the Senate.The Senate is expected to vote Tuesday on whether to advance health care legislation to the Senate floor. That would open up debate on an Obamacare repeal and/or replacement plan.At a White House event Monday, President Trump highlighted what he called the “failures” of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and called on senators to pass a bill that both repeals and replaces the ACA. Last week, Trump urged an approach that would repeal the law over two years, giving lawmakers more time to craft new health care legislation. Several days later at a lunch with lawmakers, he advocated repeal and replace.But it’s still not clear what the Senate will be voting on. There are multiple bills in play.The Senate hopes it can muster the 51 votes needed to pass a bill, but some Republicans are wavering, both in the center and on the right.NPR’s health and politics teams have been doing our best to shed some light on what’s a very confusing situation, even by health policy standards.What are they voting on?There are at least four bills that could advance to the Senate floor. Here’s our summary, with a chart comparing House and Senate bills to the Affordable Care Act, and links to stories that dive into the implications of the legislation.Who wins? Who loses?We worked with NPR member station reporters and editors to create an interactive Q&A on how key elements of the bills would affect people in different states.What if the Senate parliamentarian says ‘nope’?Another potential wrinkle came up late Friday. Julie Rovner with Kaiser Health News reports that the Senate rule-keeper has advised that some key parts of some of the bills could need 60 votes to proceed. They include defunding Planned Parenthood and incentives to have people keep health insurance. Getting 60 votes would require Democratic support, which they won’t get.And if Obamacare remains the law of the land?For now, the Affordable Care Act is still the law, and insurers are trying to plan for next year. That’s proving to be difficult and might drive up costs for consumers.Congressional action could have an enormous impact on people’s health insurance. But the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has some wide berth in interpreting the law and could make a lot of changes without congressional action. Here are some key actions and regulations that could affect the exchanges and Medicaid (and more).Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. Sharelast_img read more

3 Ways to Find a Profitable Mobile App Idea

first_img Ideas are cheap. Execution is not. Yet the journey of an appreneur begins with an idea that has the potential to generate profit and wealth in the long term.In search of an idea, you may look to the apps or app categories (such as on-demand) that already exist and build something similar in hopes of making it big, because those that you emulated have. But it doesn’t always work. Purely because there is a big gap between their motivation and yours. In this article, we will look at some of the ways that we teach at Appreneurship Academy to find a profitable mobile app idea. These are tried and tested and drawn from some of the most successful apps that you can find in the app store.Related: Answers to 6 Burning Questions From App Entrpreneurs 1. Look for problems.It’s true some of the most popular apps are a result of a problem being solved. Oftentimes it’s the problem that the founders themselves faced. Sometimes it’s the problem they discovered by observing the people around them, in a personal or professional setting.So here’s what you must do. Start observing how you go about things in your daily life. Observe other people too. See how they struggle with a task. See how you struggle with a task and whether there’s a better way to do it.Observe on a daily basis and try to note at least one problem each day. Slowly, as time progresses, you’ll start to get better at observing real world problems that don’t have a solid solution. That will be your cue to explore an app to help solve the problem.At the end of 30 days, filter them down to top three ideas. Do this exercise for another 30 days and again, filter down to just three ideas. Go for the one that gets you most excited, the one that gives you sleepless nights. That’s the one you must take the next step with.Your idea doesn’t always have to be a B2C solution. You can look for business problems, and solve those through a B2B app. Start by doing the exercise with your workplace in mind.Related: A Guide On How To Get New App Ideas2. Exploit your skill sets.What skill sets do you have that can be leveraged to scale into a big business? Here’s an example to set your thinking in motion. Mobile phones helped Rachel Charlupski scale her babysitting business into a network that now includes more than 1,500 babysitters. When she started out, Charlupski was a solo babysitter in Phoenix offering services to hotels guests to make extra money.This is what you must do in order to discover your skill sets that can be scaled, if you don’t already have an epiphany. List your top five skills, strengths and interests. Write down five business ideas for each of those skills, strengths and interests.For instance, if one of your skills is writing, write down 5 possible business ideas – agency providing writing services, on demand app for writers and people that want to hire them, etc.Again, look for the one that excites the most and has little or no competition in the market. This market can be just your city or state. Don’t think too big on day one.3. Find apps with downloads but no updates.So far, we discussed how looking inwards can help you get to a profitable mobile app idea. Now, I’m going to show you a strategy to find an app idea by looking outwards.Search for apps in the app stores that aren’t getting updated anymore. To find these forgotten apps, use Google Play or the App Store search to see the rankings for the most updated and popular apps in the category or area of your interest — fitness, social networking, productivity, etc.Ignore the first three to four pages of search results where the most successful ones show up. These are the ones with maximum downloads and regular updates. Instead, start on page five, looking for apps that haven’t received an update in the last year, but still get downloaded. The appreneur gave them up!Related: Is Apple Going to Delete Your App? Here’s How You Can Save It.You now have the option to revive them — and know you’ll have paying customers as there already is market validation for the app. Go through the app in detail, speak to existing and potential users, and make a better app for them. One of the ways to get started is to offer to buy the app that isn’t being updated anymore.Whatever your method of finding a profitable app idea, always bear in mind that the first idea doesn’t necessarily win. For the many popular or successful apps, it’s a result of many iterations or years of perseverance that helped. 5 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Protect Your Small Business From Cyber Attacks With These Free Tools

first_img Cyber crime damages are predicted to cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015, according to a report from my company, Cybersecurity Ventures. Nearly half of all cyber attacks are committed against small businesses.Related: 4 Vital Cybersecurity Measures Every Safety-Conscious Entrepreneur Needs to TakeConsidering the statistics, it’s not a question of if a small business will be hacked, but when. Small businesses don’t have big budgets for cybersecurity, but there’s a myriad of free tools they can use to protect themselves against digital intruders.Free email security protectionEmail theft is one of the most popular cyber crimes, and it exposes small business login IDs and passwords to hackers.The recent Equifax breach caused roughly 143 million U.S. consumers to have their email credentials and other information accessible to hackers. That equates to around 55 percent of Americans age 18 or older who have been affected. Last year’s Yahoo and LinkedIn hacks exposed hundreds of millions of user accounts to hackers.A large chunk of the email addresses that are stolen and sold as a result of these hacks belong to small businesses, and their employees. Stolen email addresses are for sale on the dark web, a part of the world wide web that requires special software to access. Cyber criminals buy and sell login IDs and passwords, Social Security numbers, credit card digits and other on darknet sites. If a small business has its email addresses accessible to hackers, the results can be devastating. It’s frightening to think of the confidential information that a cyber thief will find when browsing through inboxes, sent messages and folders.Related: The Equifax Data Breach Shows the Limitations of How Our Data is StoredBut, there’s free email protection that takes less than five minutes to set up.Practically every email app in use by small businesses — ranging from Microsoft’s Outlook to Gmail, Yahoo Mail and AOL Mail — has a feature called “Two-Step Verification” (a.k.a. “Multi-Step Verification”).In a nutshell, two-step verification means that in order to gain access to an email account, an extra step is required. After a user types in his login ID and password, he’s prompted to enter a secret code. The email app instantaneously sends the user a text message with a unique code. Then the user checks his phone for the code, and types it to proceed into his email account.Hackers hate two-step verification because it prevents them from accessing some of the stolen email accounts they buy. When prompted for a secret code, a hacker has no way of knowing what it is. And the real user is notified of the fraudulent login attempt.All small businesses should turn on two-step verification for their corporate email, and recommend to their employees for personal accounts. To encourage employee participation, an employer should point out the personal benefits to their employees (namely protecting their own confidential information).Surprisingly, most small-business owners and employees are either unfamiliar with two-step verification or they simply don’t bother to turn it on. There are easy-to-follow instructions for turning on two-step verification in Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo Mail and AOL Mail.Related: Is Your Business Prepared for a Cyber Attack? (Infographic)Free cybersecurity toolsGlobal spending on cybersecurity products and services is predicted to exceed $1 trillion cumulatively over the next five years, from 2017 to 2021, according to another report from Cybersecurity Ventures.The thought of spending money they don’t have scares off small-business owners when it comes to cybersecurity. They just deal with the fallout after they get hacked. But, cyber protection doesn’t have to break the bank. In fact, these 10 free tools cover some of the biggest cybersecurity risks and they don’t cost a dime:Avast Free Antivirus is award-winning free antivirus protection for PCs, Macs and Android devices.Free Mobile Security for Apple iPhones protects against phishing attacks and post-breach email leaks.Ransim is a free ransomware simulator tool that informs how vulnerable a network is against ransomware attacks.Browser Stored Password Discovery Tool helps find out where browser-stored passwords are being used before hackers can exploit them.Weak Password Finder is a fast, easy way to find weak employee passwords used for email, surfing the web, watching videos, listening to music and more.SiteCheck scanner is a free website malware and security scanner that quickly tests for malware, website blacklisting, spam injections and website defacements.SSL Server Test is a free online service that performs a deep analysis of the configuration of any SSL web server (hint: you have this if your website is accessible via “https://” — note the “s” at the end for secure) on the public internet.FreeScan accurately scans networks, servers, desktops or web apps for security vulnerabilities.ProtonMail offers free secure end-to-end encrypted email accounts with all user data protected by strict Swiss privacy laws.ZoneAlarm Free Firewall manages and monitors all incoming and outgoing traffic and shields users from hackers, malware and other online threats that put privacy at risk.Related: What Small Business Owners Need to Know About CybersecurityFree cybersecurity glossaryFor small-business owners and IT managers who want to bone up on cybersecurity, check out The A-Z List of Computer Threats from Sophos.If that’s not enough, Cybersecurity Ventures maintains a list of glossaries for looking up more advanced cybersecurity and cyber warfare terms.Related Video: A Genius Former Hacker Explains How to Keep Your Business Safe From Cyber Attacks Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
