MONTREAL – A Swedish prosecutor says he is considering appealing Wednesday’s acquittal of a Russian employee in the Swedish branch of train maker Bombardier for aggravated bribery in one of the country’s biggest corruption cases to date.“We’ll definitely consider that at this point,” Thomas Forsberg said from Stockholm.Prosecutors have three weeks to decide whether or not to appeal the court decision, but will likely make a decision by next week, he said in an interview.The Stockholm District Court said “it could not be proven” that Evgeny Pavlov, an employee of Bombardier Transportation Sweden AB, “has promised or offered an unfair advantage, which is a prerequisite for the existence of a bribe.”Pavlov had been accused of bribery to win a contract for a signalling system with a contract value of around US$340 million. He was facing a six-year jail sentence and deportation.In a statement, Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) said it was “pleased with the outcome” in court.“Bombardier had always denied any allegation of criminal wrongdoing, and we are happy to see the court’s conclusions in this regard,” spokesman Simon Letendre wrote in an email.In 2013, Bombardier was part of a consortium awarded a contract to supply signalling equipment for a 500-kilometre (300-mile) track along a corridor connecting Asia and Europe to Azerbaijan Railways.“He has been acquitted. This is really positive,” his lawyer Cristina Bergner told The Associated Press, adding she had not been able to speak to her client yet.When Pavlov was released Oct. 4 after seven months in jail, “we knew he would be acquitted.”He was arrested in March and ordered held in pre-trial custody to prevent him from fleeing or tampering with evidence. Emails seized in October 2016 during a search of Bombardier offices in Sweden were considered evidence in the case.Bergner had repeatedly said her client is innocent.The court said prosecutors “have not proved that … there was expectation that the official would affect the railway authority in the procurement.”Forsberg said he was more surprised than disappointed by the verdict.He said the preliminary investigation is still ongoing and charges against others could still be laid next year.“We will continue our efforts investigating this in localities and any other people from Bombardier who might be involved,” he added.___With files from The Associated Press and Julien Arsenault.

He has good relation with the Superintendent of NRS Medical College and Hospital and thus he can help Ali to get a job of assistant facility manager. At that moment one of Ali’s friend was also there and Majumdar also offered him a job. Majumdar allegedly told Ali and his friend to give him some money as it is needed to get the jobs. Though his friend did not gave him money, Ali believed Majumdar and gave him Rs 3.99 lakh in multiple phases. In the meantime Majumdar reportedly asked Ali to go to Sasthya Bhavan at Sector V in Salt Lake and Calcutta Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) several times for the job. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayOn February 1, Majumdar again told Ali to go to Sasthya Bhavan with all the documents and wait for his call. As per his version Ali went there and waited for several hours but Majumdar did not called him. So Ali called Majumdar and found that his mobile switched off. Immediately, he returned to the mess and found Majumdar had fled with all his belongings. Then he understood that he has been duped but did not lodged any complaint. On Saturday, Ali went to SSKM Hospital for his treatment and saw Majumdar is talking with a person near the emergency gate. He immediately informed the police outpost inside the hospital. Upon being informed, sleuths went to the spot and detained him. As the place of crime committed was under Amherst Street police station’s jurisdiction, Bhowanipore police station intimated the Amherst Street police station. Later, Ali lodged a complaint at the Amherst Street police station and Majumdar was arrested.

The agency expects more people to arrive as the road linking the South Sudanese capital, Juba, to Uganda has been cleared of checkpoints, Leo Dobbs, spokesperson for the UNHCR, today told reporters at a press briefing in Geneva. “People are arriving in Uganda tired and hungry. Many of them have walked for days carrying belongings. Others are suffering from malnutrition after walking without food for days,” said Mr. Dobbs. Thousands of people entered Uganda’s northern region via the border crossing points at Moyo, Kuluba, Lamwo, Yumbe and Elegu. Some of them headed directly to Kiryandongo refugee settlement in the mid-west of the country. Most of the new arrivals have fled from South Sudan’s Eastern Equatoria state, with a smaller number coming from Juba. “Inside Uganda, more than 6,000 South Sudanese are staying in the Pagiarinya settlement in Adjumani District, while others are waiting at collection points to be transferred to the settlement,” Mr. Dobbs said, expressing caution that a recent evaluation found that the settlement has capacity for another 6,500 people, “Meaning it is likely to be full within a few days.” Between Friday and Sunday, about 2,950 refugees had crossed into Uganda; prior to Friday, the daily rate was about 233 people. “Those arriving spoke of a volatile security situation and fear that fighting could return at any time. They also reported an increase in looting,” Mr. Dobbs said. According to reports, the violence in Juba has resulted in the deaths of at least 300 people and over 10,000 have fled their homes. Several countries have evacuated their nationals. He also condemned violent attacks against humanitarian workers, which have left at least one person dead. In addition, UN humanitarian property has been destroyed. On 14 July, the main warehouse in the city run by the UN World Food Programme (WFP) was looted. The warehouse held one month’s worth of life-saving food and nutrition supplies for 220,000 people before the fighting erupted. Although a fragile ceasefire has held since late Monday, the threat of fresh fighting remains. The situation is further exasperated by skyrocketing prices, due to the devaluation of the South Sudanese pound, making the food that is available too expensive for many. The fighting has also disrupted supply routes from Uganda into South Sudan, including aid and food. UNHCR and partners are undertaking assessments and providing assistance in displacement sites. This includes an inter-agency site assessment mission with officials from the Ugandan prime minister’s office, to visit and identify sites suitable for establishing new settlement areas. “The fresh displacement will put a further strain on UNHCR’s resources for the South Sudan operation and our ability to provide timely and life-saving assistance,” he said. Last Friday, in Nairobi, Kenya, UNHCR presented a revised appeal for its South Sudanese refugees operations, seeking $701 million. The earlier appeal for $638 million was only 17 per cent funded. Based on new planning, the agency has revised its figures from 867,239 refugees to 973,000 and there are fears that it could cross 1 million in the coming months.
International Mining’s February issue (currently with the printer) includes an article on the proposed combination of the Pilbara operations of Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton. European Union regulators say this plan to combine some operations could damage competition. A statement from the European Commission says it would investigate whether the companies’ plan to pool iron ore mining in Western Australia would affect the global prices or supply for iron ore transported by sea. European steel makers complained last November that the mining combination could hike prices for iron ore. The EU executive set no deadline for the probe into whether the deal breaks EU antitrust rules forbidding restrictive business practices. Suzanne Rab, Counsel in the Competition/Antitrust practice at Hogan & Hartson said, “The Commission’s opening of proceedings is an investigation under the EU rules on restrictive practices. The Commission will examine the effects of the proposed JV on the worldwide market for iron ore that is transported by sea. Although the opening of this probe does not signify that the Commission has evidence of an infringement of competition law, it signals that this arrangement is considered a priority area for inquiry by the Commission. “The Commission is examining an agreement signed in December 2009 between BHP Billiton and Rio to set up a production JV covering the two companies’ entire Western Australia iron ore assets. The Commission will examine the competitive impact on the market for iron ore transported by sea. Worldwide iron ore consumption is now on the rise, following a slump resulting from the economic downturn and is expected to increase in the short to medium term. Against this background and where Rio and BHP are the second and third largest producers of iron ore in the world behind Vale of Brazil, the Commission can be expected to scrutinise in detail the effect of the JV on competition and future pricing. “This is not the first deal between BHP Billiton and Rio that has raised red flags with the antitrust regulators. In 2008, the European Commission examined under the EU Merger Regulation a full merger between the parties. The transaction was abandoned in November 2008, against continued deterioration of global economic conditions. The European Commission said at the time that it had serious concerns about the competitive effect of the deal in the markets for compounds used to manufacture steel. The present inquiry, however, concerns a different operation as the agreement combines only the iron ore production activities of the parties, leaving their marketing functions apart. The companies have said that the deal would increase efficiencies and that deliveries of iron ore would be sold independently through the respective companies’ marketing groups. “The JV takes place against a background where three companies, Vale of Brazil, Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton account for most of the iron ore sold worldwide and transported by sea. The Commission will examine whether the combination of the parties’ production activities is the least restrictive means of achieving the benefits they claim in terms of synergies and efficiencies and whether these benefits will outweigh any harm to competition. Doing business in the mining sector is risky and the Commission will have put to it arguments seeking to justify why the JV does not present a problem for competition The fact that there is no guarantee of finding ore, that ores can be located in difficult geographic regions, that commodity prices are fluctuating and that capital or debt come with strings attached will all weigh in to the assessment. This must be counter-balanced by concerns that have been raised by third parties fearing increased pricing power, particularly companies active in the steel industry where iron ore is a key input. “There is no timing on the Commission’s inquiry, in contrast with the fixed timetable under the EU Merger Regulation. It will be recalled that the Commission’s inquiry into the merger of the two parties itself faced a lengthy and detailed two phase procedure, before it was eventually abandoned in 2008 in the face of a collapse in the market, falling share prices and third party opposition, despite approval by authorities outside the EU.”
Vedanta reports good progress at all of its zinc sites. In India, underground production at Rampura Agucha continues to ramp up strongly and it achieved an ore production run-rate of 3 Mt/y during the March quarter of 2018. The south ventilation shaft system was commissioned during the quarter. Off shaft development is on track and production is expected to start in Q3 FY2019. During the quarter, Sindesar Khurd’s main shaft was equipped and winder installation work commenced. Production from the shaft is expected to start as per schedule in Q3 FY2019. Civil and structure erection for the new 1.5 Mt/y mill is ongoing and is expected be commissioned in Q2 FY2019.During the quarter, orders were also placed for paste fill plants for both Rampura Agucha and Sindesar Khurd mines. Elsewhere, MoEF has given environmental clearance for expansion of ore production at Kayad mine from 1.0 to 1.2 Mt/y. At Zawar mine, civil construction work for the new 2 Mt/y mill is progressing well with commissioning expected by Q4 FY2019. The Fumer project is progressing as per schedule and expected to commission in mid-FY2019. Overall in India, Vedanta is on track for ramp up of mined metal production to 1.2 Mt by FY2020.Abroad, at the Gamsberg project in South Africa, Vedanta is on track for the cold commissioning of the concentrator plant in Q1 FY2019 with production expected to commence in mid CY2018. The ore extraction from the South Pit is on track and to date the company has completed 80% of pre-stripping with 56 Mt of waste excavation. Completion of mechanical equipment erection and infrastructure for power and water pipeline for the concentrat or are in progress.Vedanta is targeting 500,000 t of ore stockpile ahead of first feed to the concentrator plant.In Namibia at Skorpion, the pit 112 extension project is progressing well and waste stripping has ramped up to its peak run-rate. Some 45% of waste stripping has been completed by the end of Q4 FY2018 and is expected to be fully complete by Q4 FY2019 as per schedule. Pit redesign is in progress to reduce waste stripping by 8 Mt and optimise project cost. This project will increase Skorpion’s mine life by another 2.5 years and contribute 250,000 t of metal over this period.
Dropbox serves as a rock-solid cloud storage service for millions of personal and business customers. The 2GB of free storage that it offers is enough for most casual users, but what about those users who have tons of content? They can upgrade to a premium plan, but they run $100 per year for 50GB, or $200 annually for a 100GB plan. Those free 2GB are nice, but after that, Dropbox ain’t cheap.A new promotion that Dropbox is running may be able to help with that. With the service’s latest beta desktop software, it has added an automatic photo import feature. Plug in a camera or smartphone, and you’ll have the option to automatically import those pictures to your Dropbox account. If it reminds you of Apple’s Photostream, that’s no coincidence: it’s likely designed to directly compete with the iCloud service.To help promote the new feature, Dropbox is throwing us all a bone. Anyone who uses the photo import tool — even once — will get some extra Dropbox storage. On your first import, you automatically get an extra 500MB added to your account. For every 500MB of photos you import after that, you get another 500MB of storage added to your account. The fun gets cut off after 4.5GB of uploads, for a grand total of 5GB of free storage if you use the new service enough.This is a great deal for customers who don’t want to pay extra for Dropbox storage. You can triple your Dropbox quota without paying a dime. Additionally, the photo import feature is pretty handy. Dropbox hasn’t yet added this tweak to mobile apps, but it’s only logical that it eventually would. There are already hacks in place on both iOS and Android that allow you to automatically import all new photos to Dropbox.Those who use Apple products probably won’t see any reason to abandon iCloud’s Photostream syncing, as it already serves the same function. But for those who prefer other platforms — or those who like Apple but don’t want to be locked into their ecosystem — this is a nifty way to have your images always ready and waiting in the cloud. That it rewards you for trying it only sweetens the pot. You can do just that by visiting the source link below, and downloading the beta Dropbox client for Mac, Windows, or Linux.via Dropbox

Stay on target Things were quiet on the Shenmue III front for some time after it was announced in 2015. In recent weeks, we’ve gotten new information on the eagerly anticipated title thanks to Gamescom. During an interview at Europe’s biggest gaming convention, Shenmue creator Yu Suzuki gave additional details about the game’s progress.Shenmue II was released in 2001. The gaming landscape has changed considerably since that time. When Metro GameCentral asked Suzuki about how Shenmue III would be modernized, he revealed that things would remain close to the original but still have new elements.“I don’t think it’s necessary to change the basics of the gameplay,” said Suzuki. “If I change it too much the existing fans will be very upset. Although I am always making up new ideas and things to add to the game, which can be a problem for my team who are trying to implement these ideas.He also added: “At the moment we are trying to keep it to 30% new and the keep the other 70% of the game similar to the original. But the design is constantly changing, and I am always coming up with new concepts that we can try to add to the game if there is the opportunity.”There was a new trailer released for Shenmue III last week. While the environments looked graphically impressive, the same couldn’t be said about the characters’ dead-eyed faces. Suzuki explained that the game is still a work-in-progress and that this aspect should see improvement as development continues.“This has been a definite problem and what you see in the teaser is not the final development. It is still in production and is due to a change in the nature of the character models, rather than the facial animation itself. So what you see in the teaser is not a sign of the final game, and you will see a lot of improvement before the final game.”Right now, Shenmue III is slated to release on PC and PS4 sometime in late 2018. The game’s hype has been building for 16 years, so let’s hope it delivers the goods when it finally comes out.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

The Google Kirkland facility is shown during its grand opening October 28, 2009 in Kirkland, Washington.Stephen Brashear/Getty Images)Search engine giant Google is reportedly planning to double its headcount in its India cloud business, in a bid to take on Amazon and Microsoft’s popularity in the country. The current headcount in the firm’s India arm is not known as of now.”We are building our go-to market, which spans across segments and industries. This year we are doubling our team here and we will probably double this again as we move forward,” Mohit Pande, country head – India, Google Cloud, told the Economic Times.Google is looking at quite a big growth this year considering the cloud service market is likely to witness a 38 percent growth in 2017 to $1.81 billion, according to Gartner. The research company also explained that cloud services market in India is largely untapped and Google has made quite an effort to make a mark, investing about $30 billion in the last three years. Additionally, the tech giant is also set to start its first cloud region in the country.”India is a large market for us, also a very strategic market. We are investing a lot in India, we are opening a cloud region, we are investing in sales, marketing, customer engineering teams, professional services and partner network. We are building this ecosystem as India is a significant part of our strategy,” Pande added.”These are early days for cloud. It is a very large market and we think less than 10% of workload has moved to the cloud. Most of the market is for everyone to play. We see a big momentum coming in.”Google, in fact, is late to the party as Microsoft, Amazon and IBM have already made quite some progress in the cloud market and already also have public cloud data centres.”We also think that as the overall environment for cloud improves in India, internet infrastructure is improving significantly. We are seeing the cost of data go down. We are seeing mobility moving in India big time. Corporates in India are jumping ahead and right now is a great time for any cloud company to be in India,” said Pande. A neon Google logo is seen at the new Google office in Toronto, November 13, 2012.ReutersMeanwhile, Google is making progress in its cloud services not just in India. Just a few days ago, the brand launched a new region in London and the move comes at a time when Britain is gearing up to exit the European Union and it is said to be doing well in the region. “In cities like London, Dublin, Edinburgh and Amsterdam, our performance testing shows 40%-82% reductions in round-trip time latency when serving customers from London compared with the Belgium region,” Tech Crunch quoted Google Cloud product manager Dave Stiver as saying.

British engine maker Rolls-Royce will axe another 400 jobs at its marine division, it said on Monday, as slumping oil prices weighs on demand for vessels. Rolls announced in a statement that it will reduce its number of employees by 400 by the end of next year, on top of 600 job cuts already unveiled in May.”After many years of strong performance through to 2013, led by good growth in the oil and gas sector, our order book and profitability have been adversely impacted by the sharp and subsequently prolonged drop in the price of oil,” said Mikael Makinen, President of Marine at Rolls-Royce. “Reducing our workforce is never an easy decision, but the continued weak oil price, and the need to become more competitive, means it is necessary, if we are to build a strong base from which we can successfully grow this business in the future.” Also Read – Punjab & Sind Bank cuts MCLR by up to 20 basis pointsThe latest cutbacks are forecast to generate full-year savings of $61 million.

Lingering showers are expected to drop from 1 to 3 inches, and during the game, the wind is expected to gust up to 31 mph, according to the Weather Channel. Wilks, on the Packers fans: “Those fans are good, they’re great. It’s loud in there. But as I told the guys today as I emphasized and talked about Lambeau Field, it’s still 100 yards, still 53-and-a-third (yards) as far as wide.”Offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich on the discussions of playing in Green Bay: “We talk more about what Lambeau Field means to this league, what Lambeau Field is. The weather is going to be the weather.”The offensive coordinator isn’t game-planning around the weather: “You have to feel it out and call it.

Here are what the players and coaches said about Lambeau Field and the cold weather expected in Wisconsin.Head coach Steve Wilks has been through worse as a Chicago Bears assistant: “I can’t recall the temperature, but it was against Green Bay.

Track them down.”Safety Budda Baker isn’t worried: “Not at all. I’m from Seattle, born and raised. I’m used to the cold.” Let the references to “frozen tundra” commence.
