first_imgVodafone Group Plc and the Indian government’s wrangling over taxation has now escalated to a hearing at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), according to reports.The telephone major wants the Hague-based ICJ to intervene in the retrospective taxation case, and also help appoint a third arbitrator, it said.The process of international arbitration, which began two years ago, hasn’t progressed without a third arbitrator. Both parties, however, have appointed their respective counsels in a three-member team, who have also failed to select the crucial and presiding third person, PTI reported. Incidentally, the escalation indicates Vodafone’s rejection of the Indian government’s one-time settlement offer announced during the recent Budget. Tax disputes, it was said then, could be solved by paying only the principal amount while the interest and penalties would be waived.Vodafone’s total tax demand today stands at Rs 14,300 crore (including interest and penalty), of which the principal amounts to Rs 7,990 crore, said FE.Vodafone however has claimed the principal amount/tax in itself is retrospectively charged on an acquisition which happened 2007. A 2012 Supreme Court judgment too had ruled that the taxation was retrospective. Despite this, the government had subsequently brought in the controversial retrospective tax amendment to overturn the court decision.As rapprochement the government initiated a conciliatory mechanism in 2012, which it later retracted as Vodafone went in for arbitration proceedings at an international level under the India-Netherland Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT).The government held the view then that tax matters do not come under the purview of the BIT.[1 lakh = 100,000 | 1 crore = 10 million | 100 crore = 1 billion]last_img read more

first_imgScreen shots of the avatar showing two different gestures, based on the human’s movements. Credit: Schreer, et al. ©2008 IEEE. It’s a little bit like looking in the mirror at your cartoon double, except that the “reflection” is an avatar on your computer screen. Wave your hand, nod your head, speak a sentence, and your avatar does the same. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The technology is already on display at the headquarters of Deutsche Telekom in Bonn, Germany, and at the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories in Berlin. Visitors can experiment with making gestures and watching comical characters mimic them in real time.The public feedback is very positive, according to researchers Oliver Schreer, Peter Eisert, and Ralf Tanger, of the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut in Berlin, and Roman Englert with the Deutsche Telekom Laboratories and Ben Gurion University in Beer-Sheva, Israel. The team will publish the results of its study on its vision- and speech-driven avatar technology in an upcoming issue of IEEE Transactions on Multimedia.“The presented approach allows intuitive, touchless user interaction,” Schreer told PhysOrg.com. “Due to the recognition capabilities, any novel interface can be designed for interactive human-computer interaction.”The researchers’ prototype system is compatible with a normal PC, with the only hardware required being a low-cost Webcam and a pair of standard headphones. The complete set of audio-visual analysis is performed in real-time, which allows an immediate animation of the virtual character. To begin, the program wouldn’t require any training or individual input of gestures. However, since the system relies on skin color recognition to follow the movements of the hands and head, users must wave their hands around at first to enable the system to determine the individual’s skin color. Wearing skin-colored clothing should be avoided.The system can recognize a set of 66 parameters that define facial expression, and it also contains a set of high-level facial expressions (such as joy, sadness, surprise, and disgust). Users can also press buttons to manually activate these expressions. The system also recognizes “visemes,” which move the lips in accordance with the phoneme being spoken based on voice analysis. A set of 15 visemes can represent all phonemes. The system also recognizes a set of 186 body motion parameters that define joint rotation in the arms and upper body.The head rotation is detected as well in order to represent head nick, head shake and head roll.By detecting the positions of fingers, the system can recognize many basic gestures, including many from the American Sign Language alphabet. Sometimes the avatar’s hands don’t exactly mimic the user’s hands, as the main aim is to make the avatar’s movements as smooth and natural as possible. In the future, the researchers plan to apply the system in virtual chat rooms and online call center applications, such as technical support. In both situations, users are represented by avatars. The avatars become animated based on the users’ movements and speech, while maintaining the privacy of the users. The researchers also hope to integrate the avatar system into mobile devices, where it could serve as a user-friendly interface in addition to touch screens, a stylus, or speech recognition systems.“Some aspects like gestures based on hand recognition are already market mature,” Schreer said. “Finger analysis and interpretation are more complicated and may need another one or two years in order to achieve robust algorithms that operate under real-life conditions, i.e. the real environment. Initial applications are scrolling of menus in cellulars (e.g. SMS browsing) and in the medical area for the control of interfaces in operating rooms.”More information: Schreer, Oliver; Englert, Roman; Eisert, Peter; and Tanger, Ralf. “Real-Time Vision and Speech Driven Avatars for Multimedia Applications.” IEEE Transactions on Multimedia.

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. How Success Happens 3 min read Brought to you by PCWorld When my home-built desktop unexpectedly dropped dead of what the coroner will record as a motherboard aneurism, I did what any geek would do. I freaked out for 5 minutes or so, and then I started thinking about my next build.With my key criteria of speed, quietness, and affordability firmly in mind, I pointed my browser toward my favorite online parts stores, whipped out a credit card, and set to work. What follows is the first half of the component list that ultimately became the fantastic new desktop I’m writing this column about. The prices listed below were accurate at press time.Processor: My last two PCs used AMD CPUs; but for this build, going with Intel was a no-brainer, as its chips tend to be much better performers at most price levels. Though a quad-core Intel processor sounded appealing, a well-optimized dual-core made more sense, I decided (few apps today use all four cores well, anyway). I went with the E8400, a 3-GHz CPU based on Intel’s new 45-nanometer fabrication process. The chip is fast, runs relatively cool, and is so popular with enthusiasts (and consequently so hard to find) that I spent $260 for it, despite Intel’s list price of $179.CPU cooling: Standard CPU heat sinks are for suckers (or people undisturbed by turboprop engines), so I opted instead for Sythe’s Ninja Plus Rev B SCNJ-1100P, which uses six pipes to draw processor heat up through its aluminum fins. A 120mm fan attached to the side of the sink then blows the heat away. At $39 (before a $10 rebate), it isn’t cheap, and it wasn’t particularly easy to install (you must attach it before installing the motherboard in the chassis). But the hassle was worthwhile: My CPU has yet to exceed the 32 C mark under load; and even with the case open, the fan is nearly noiseless.Motherboard: In choosing Gigabyte’s GA-P35-DS3L, I was influenced by the product’s Ultra Durable 2 moniker. (My last two PC builds succumbed to motherboard-related issues.) Also, it’s 100 percent passively cooled, supports my new CPU, and costs just $88. Based on Intel’s P35 chip set, the motherboard owes its durability to its Conductive Polymer Aluminum Solid capacitors. Gigabyte says that the technology leads to better voltage regulation, increased stability, and a longer PC life span. I can’t verify any of that yet, but my new system has been rock-solid so far.Graphics card: Though I don’t spend much time gaming at my PC, I demand a top-notch graphics card. For this build I wanted something featuring NVidia’s 8800 GT GPU, which is a few notches (in quality and price) below its top-of-the-line GTX. I was quite pleased to find ECS’s N8800GT 512MB board with an included passive cooler for silent heat dissipation. The $245 card (before a $50 rebate) includes Arctic Cooling’s fantastic Accelero S1 cooling system, which uses a series of copper heat pipes connected to 32 fins that stretch the length of the card. You need a big chassis to accommodate this long card. I left off the optional fans since I don’t plan to overclock, and the card runs fast and silent.The tally so far (before $60 in rebates): $632. Next month I’ll introduce my choices for RAM, hard drive, optical drive, chassis, sound card, speakers, and operating system.ChecklistCPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 $260CPU cooling: Sythe Ninja Plus Rev B SCNJ-1100P $39Motherboard: Gigabyte’s GA-P35-DS3L $88Graphics: ECS N8800GT $245TOTAL $632 June 2, 2008 Listen Nowlast_img read more

first_imgSenate Banking Committee Grills Jerome Powell During a lengthy session Tuesday morning before the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Jerome Powell faced intense questioning from both sides of the aisle about his nomination as Fed Chair. Topics ranged from Powell’s philosophy on deregulation, to interest rates and shrinking the size of the Fed’s balance sheet, to the potential effects of tax reform. If confirmed, Powell would replace Janet Yellen, who announced her retirement from the Fed’s Board of Governors in early November, following Powell’s nomination as Fed Chair by President Trump.Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) praised Powell personally, but leveled harsh words at the current administration’s focus on deregulation, criticizing what he called “collective amnesia about what happened 10 years ago.”Later in the session, Powell said that he would “not characterize what we’re doing as deregulation.” Instead, he emphasized the importance of looking back over the various regulations and legislation instituted since the 2008 financial crisis and making sure it still makes sense. In response to questioning by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), who asked if Powell believed there were any regulations that needed to be stronger, Powell said, “Honestly, Senator, I think they’re tough enough.”Powell said the Fed would continue to err on the side of caution, but added that “it doesn’t help anyone for banks to waste money.”Instead, Powell highlighted the importance of tailoring regulations to the size and importance of the institution in question, with a decrease in intensity and stringency for smaller and regional banks. However, Powell pointed out that “Fundamentally, size is only one indicator of the riskiness of a firm and the possibility of it damaging the financial system through its failures.”Powell said he was in favor of exempting banks worth less than $10 billion from the Volker Rule, which limits risky trading by U.S. banks.On the subject of the Fed’s balance sheet, Powell said he would work to continue shrinking it, although he conceded that it will remain considerably larger than before the financial crisis, and that it will consist mostly of Treasury securities. As securities mature, they would continue to be allowed to “roll off passively,” and Powell predicted an eventual balance sheet total of between $2.5 and $3 trillion. He said he believed this “new normal” could likely be achieved within three to five years. Much would rely, however, on “the public’s demand for cash and banks’ demand for reserves.”When asked about housing reform by Senator Michael Crapo (R-Idaho), Powell agreed that it was an important priority, calling it a “highly important piece of unfinished business from the financial crisis.”Powell was repeatedly asked about the implications of the Senate’s tax bill, but Powell insisted that the Fed would react to any such legislation once it is passed. “Our responsibility is to carry out the mandate [Congress has] given us,” Powell said. “I don’t believe you don’t rely on us to score fiscal proposals.” When pressed throughout the session, Powell said he believed in focusing on the “sustainability of our fiscal path in the long run.”Powell said, under his leadership, the Fed would at least consider raising interest rates in the near term. “Conditions are supportive of doing that,” said Powell, but he declined to make any specific commitments on the subject.When asked about his impressions of the current administration by Democratic senators such as Warren and Brown, Powell said that none of his interactions had given him concerns that the independence of the Fed would be in question under President Trump. Powell said the administration would be free to voice its opinions on matters, but it was better for the Fed “not to look at the politics of things.”Senator Jack Reed (D-Rhode Island) asked Powell about how the Fed would respond to ongoing cybersecurity concerns, and Powell pinpointed cybersecurity as “maybe the single most important risk to our financial institutions.” However, he said there are no easy answers in this area, and constant diligence is required. “There can never be any sense of ‘mission accomplished’ there,” Powell said.The Senate Banking Committee wrapped up the session by calling for Senators to submit any further questions they had for the record by Friday, December 1, at noon. The Committee asked for Powell’s responses to those questions to be submitted by Monday, December 4, at 10 a.m. November 28, 2017 602 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, journal, Newscenter_img Fed fed chair Jerome Powell Senate Banking Committee 2017-11-28 David Wharton Sharelast_img read more

first_imgKolb saying he’s envisioned himself as a Cardinal is a turning point for a franchise who, over the last twenty-plus years, wouldn’t have been a top destination for a concession stand worker let alone one of the hottest commodities in the league.Those eleven simple words may not have answered any questions about the Cardinals quarterback situation, but if you look at it the same way you look at conversations in your relationships, those few words speak volumes. What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Comments   Share   Top Stories Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation In a relationship you get used to seeing the hidden meaning in things that are said. More often than not the conversation isn’t as simple as it seems at first listen, ‘Did you like that new recipe I tried?’ or ‘Do I look good in this?’ it goes beyond that. If you’re anything like me, you probably feel like Tom Hanks in the Da Vinci Code — or if you aren’t feeling that ambitious Nic Cage in National Treasure — trying to discern what really is going on.

D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ It’s not that different in sports. Sometimes athletes and coaches say things that mean more than they appear to on the surface. On some occasions they aren’t even aware of what that meaning is.Take Kevin Kolb for example. On Tuesday the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback told a national radio host that “Arizona would be a great place. I’ve obviously envisioned myself there.” While those eleven words seem pretty straight forward, they should have a Deuce Lutui — feel free to insert Kirstie Alley there if it makes you feel better — sized impact on Cardinals fans reading them.That impact has nothing to do with the fact that the signal caller many fans have longed for like a high schooler staring at the pretty girl in class, may actually be the team’s quarterback of the future. It doesn’t even have to do with the fact that the quote signifies that our long national — or is that local — nightmare of incessant quarterback rumors may be nearing an end.The real reason the quote is so important is the fact that for the first time since Jimmy Stewart — no, not the guy from the Daily Show, the guy from the movie It’s a Wonderful Life — was one of the biggest names in Hollywood, the Cardinals are on the mind of one of the biggest available names in the NFL.
