Tags:#Features#web#Weekly Wrap-ups Real-Time Collaboration Has Stalled…For NowA Forrester study reports that real-time collaboration has stalled in the enterprise, due in most part to the lack of adoption in technologies such as web conferencing and instant messaging.

The report covers devices, productivity, mobility, collaboration, intranet portals, and Web 2.0.

Facebook Now Tracking Gross National Happiness; Continues Hoarding Data Facebook announced this week that it is tracking what it calls Gross National Happiness, based on an analysis of the positive and negative words people use when updating their Facebook status. The new index is interesting, but it’s also a frustrating example of just how much value Facebook is withholding by not allowing everyone access to the anonymous, aggregated activity and conversation of more than 300 million people. richard macmanuslast_img read more

In Jodhpur, a tableau on Mohammed Afrazul’s alleged killer Shambu Lal Raigar

first_imgA tableau on Shambhu Lal Raigar, who had allegedly hacked and burnt to death a 48-year-old Muslim labourer from West Bengal, Mohammed Afrazaul, at Rajsamand in December last year, was taken out during a Ram Navmi procession in Jodhpur on Sunday. The tableau depicted a Raigar lookalike man with a pickaxe in his hand.Dressed in clothes similar to what Raigar was wearing when he appeared on a video footage while killing Afrazul, a man bearing a striking resemblance with him sat on a throne-like chair in the tableau. For a brief duration, the tableau also showed a man lying in front of the Raigar look alike and the latter making a gesture of hitting him.A huge banner hung at the tableau called upon Hindus to “protect [their] sisters and daughters and liberate the country from Love Jihad”. It stated: “Hindu bhaiyon jago, apni bahan beti bachao. Love Jihad se desh ko azad karana chahiye.”The banner also carried pictures of the tableau’s sponsor, Shiv Sena leader Hari Singh, with folded hands, and Raigar along with a pickaxe.Raigar, lodged in the Jodhpur Central jail pending his trial, had filmed the act of killing Afrazul and posted the video on social media.Police were yet to take any action against the organisers. Deputy Commissioner of Police (Jodhpur East) Amandeep Singh said the police had not received any complaints. However, he said he had learnt about the tableau from the local media persons.The procession marking Ram Navmi has been taken out in Jodhpur for the last 35 years. For more than a decade, it has been organised under the banner of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). The organisers claim that the tableaux generally depict the subjects of public interest and current affairs.This is not the first instance of Raigar getting support from the hardline groups. A week after he was convicted, hundreds of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and VHP activists had taken out a protest march in Udaipur and clashed with the police at the Court Circle. The protesters had also unfurled a saffron flag on the District Court building.last_img read more

Davis Cup: Aggression is the buzzword for Yuki

first_imgHis talent was never in doubt but injuries have plagued Yuki Bhambri’s promising career. After a lengthy injury lay-off, Yuki has come back strongly with some good victories under his belt and his confidence is certainly high going into Friday’s opening rubber against Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic.The difference in their rankings is huge with Yuki 90 places behind the 61st-ranked Lajovic, but considering that some of the visiting team’s top players, including Novak Djokovic, are missing, India can surely be positive. Yuki understands the expectations but says he will do what he knows best – play aggressively.”I am match-ready. It will be a tough one but that’s what Davis Cup is all about. My tennis has been good lately. We know it is a tough situation and this is how it is going to be. At the end of the day, we are here to win and not to give just a good fight. If you have to be there in the World Group, you have to beat the top 16, it is simple as that,” Yuki told Mail Today after Thursday’s practice session.In Yuki and Somdev Devvarman, the country’s top-ranked singles player, India have two players who have completely different styles of play. While Somdev believes in grinding down the opponent and is prepared to play a lengthy game, Yuki is someone who likes to be aggressive.Yuki, a former Australian Open junior champion, hopes to bank upon his aggression to counter Lajovic”Davis Cup is about teams and everyone has to contribute. Dusan has done well in the last two years but hopefully, with the crowd behind me, and if I can play as well as I can and physically handle long matches, it will be OK. Playing aggressively is what I know. I will go for my shots for that is how I have learned my tennis. It suits my game with the ball flying and going through the air quicker. I like playing fast and finishing fast. I am a completely different player than somebody like Somdev who would probably give the counter punch and run around,” added Yuki.advertisementAgainst Lajovic, who played the first round of the US Open main draw, Yuki certainly starts as the underdog but the Indian doesn’t mind that.”He is expected to win because is ranked 61st in the world. Being the underdog, it takes some pressure off you. I can play freely with the tie starting from scratch and I don’t have to think about the results of the previous matches of the tie. Yes, I will be nervous. It’s different because you are not playing for yourself here but for your country and your teammates. You have to play five sets so the mindset has to be different as well but I like challenges,” the Indian added.last_img read more
