Henry Luce, Time has the world's largest
circulation for a weekly news magazine

London, An Asian edition which is based
in Hong Kong and The South Pacific
edition based in Sydney. They also had a
Canadian advertiser edition, which was

million to give the much-needed lift to the
Meredith put four Time Inc. publications
up for sale in March? Fortune, Time,
Money and Sports Illustrated.
The Benioffs are the latest wealthy people
from the tech world to buy a traditional
news publication and are buying Time as
individuals where the agreement is
declared unrelated to Salesforce.com.
Salesforce is a cloud software company
who makes products are for businesses.
Meredith said that the Benioffs would not
be involved in the editorial decisions of
the magazine and that those decisions
will continue to be made by Time?s
current executive leadership team.
The sale is a part of Meredith's goal to
save $400 million to $500 million over the
next two years and increase the
profitability of its remaining portfolio of
publications and use the proceeds from
the sale of Time to pay off debt and

The government's move to merge two
comparatively stronger banks, Bank Of Baroda, and
Vijaya Bank with the weaker Dena Bank this month,
is in the hope to ensure the stability of operations
and credit profile of the merged entity and for it to
become the country's third-largest lender by
structurally improving the operating efficiencies
Where the merger is seen to reduce the capital
burden for the government over the long term, and
enable better management of a smaller set of large
PSU banks, there can also be a possibility that it
might cause a short-term spurt in bad assets
because the slippages may increase in that period.
Dena Bank's lower capital buffers are offset by
Vijaya Bank's higher capital buffers, and the merged
bank will need additional tier 1 capital depending on
internal accruals for FY19. But in the long term, the
merger seems beneficial as advantages like reduced
combined operating costs, low funding cost and
strengthened risk management practises seem to be
While it is evident that Bank of Baroda shareholders
stands to lose the most, the Dena Bank investors, on
the contrary, will have everything to gain from the
transaction. Looking at the condition of Dena Bank,
that does not lend anymore and has been under the
intensive care of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) for
more than four months, this merger is rightly seen
as a bailout for the particular Bank.
Announcing the plan, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley
said the merger will make the banks stronger and
sustainable as well as increase their lending ability.
After the announcement made by the Government,
while the investors in the Bank of Baroda and Vijaya
Bank lost 14% and 12% in market value, respectively,
Dena Bank investors gained around 14%.
Before the bank merger was announced, based on
their book values as of June, every share of Bank of
Baroda was worth 8.5 shares of Dena Bank.
As announced, with the swap ratio of 1:8.5, Dena
Bank, seems to be most favoured and the
government will stand to gain the most, given its
80% stake in the bank. In Bank of Baroda, it has a
lower stake of about 64%.
Before the merger, comparatively smaller sized,
Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank may have had to
compromise on margins in order to lend to
better-rated corporates, which definitely seems to
change after the merger.
The Government assured that the jobs of employees
will be protected and service conditions will not be
Capital support to the merged entity of Dena Bank,
Vijaya Bank and BoB would be ensured with the
three banks continuing to work independently

China hits carbon emission
goals prior its promised date
China, the World's biggest polluter, hits its Carbon
goals three years early this year. The country hit the
peak it promised in the Paris climate accord well
before its 2020 timetable.
The country?s rapid industrialization slowed and its
consumption of coal declined along with their quite
significant economic growth.
Chinese emissions of carbon dioxide and other
greenhouse gases topped out in 2013 at about 9.5
billion tons while the numbers declined to about 9.2
billion tons in 2016. And, as the scientists say, every
ton of CO2 that?s not released, provides more breathing
space in the global fight to hold global average
temperatures at between 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius.
Looking at about seven years ago, China was
out-spending the U.S. on clean energy technology
investments and their investment is what turned the
tide for the biggest polluter.
In 2017, Chinese cities were in the global media
limelight for a red alert on polluted air and since then
the country has overseen both modernizations of its
coal-powered plants and the shuttering of coal plants
across the eastern part of the country.
The motivation came from the Chinese government as
the pollution was clearly starting to threaten not just
public development, but also public health and social
stability. They then created products like solar panels
to achieve their goal towards cleaner energy and
address climate change. They are also trying to
increase the number of electric vehicles in the market
and have now started investing in coal plants abroad,
specifically in places like the Philippines and
The key reason for China's growth in emissions was
because of the high demand for oil and gas, increased
car ownership and increasing electricity demand
which now seems under control as the country has
invested heavily in renewable energy such as wind
China is also behind on methane capture, and are
working their way out to recycle gas emissions into
energy. Taking the initiative a priority, the Chinese
National Development and Reform Commission
(NDRC) launched a nationwide carbon emissions
trading system in the power generation industry in
December 2017 wherein the businesses were assigned
emissions quotas, and those producing more than
their share of carbon have the option to buy unused
quotas in the market from those that emit less.
While China has cut back on its emissions, there's a lot
more opportunity for the country to improve. Setting
an example for the rest, China is presently leading the
battle against climate change.

BM C creates manure out of Ganpati Visarjan
flowers thrown by devotees
Ganesh Chaturthi is a ten-day Hindu festival that
celebrates the birth of Lord Ganesha. Also known
by the names Vinayaka Chaturthi or Vinayaka
Chavithi, the festival starts on the fourth day of
Hindu Lunisolar calendar month Bhadrapada,
celebrated in the months of August or September
of the Gregorian calendar.
The festival ends on the tenth day after the start,
wherein the idol is carried from the respective
homes or pandals and immersed in a nearby body
of water, usually a river or an ocean. The idol is
carried in groups, with music and chanting of
mantras. According to Wikipedia, in Mumbai
alone, around 150,000 statues are immersed
With the motive to stop devotees from throwing
flowers and leaves into the sea or on the streets,
the civic body of Mumbai, BMC came up with an
idea of reducing pollution.
This year, the body set up nirmalya (flowers and
leaves offered to Ganpati) kalashs and 190
dumpers stationed at various locations to collect
nirmalya which then gets converted in manure
and is later used in the city's civic gardens.
Designed by an in-house BMC team, they have set
up a compost manure plant in Dharavi where
flowers and other waste collected during Ganpati
immersion gets processed after getting collected
from various places all over the city. Around 1,101
tempos were placed at various immersion spots in
the city to collect the wet-waste.
The idea was taken up with respect to the feelings
of the devotees, and the project has been a
successful one since the past few years. The body
had to use liquid and solid chemicals to reduce the
stench of compost during the process. They even
promoted a small pilot project to generate
awareness in housing societies nearby.
Now that people know about this project, the BMC
is getting applauds for their waste management
skills. While on the other hand, they are being
questioned to not consider people's religious
beliefs and turning something holy into manure.
Knowing the increase in the water pollution, BMC
took the right step. Even though the manure
collected is not sufficient but it does help us in
reducing the amount of waste in the city for a

Are re smartphone cameras tak ing over
With almost all major digital camera manufacturers
reporting decreased camera sales during the past few years,
looks like the smartphone cameras are directly competing
with larger cameras.
We are approaching an era wherein to buy a high-end DSLR
or a mirrorless camera to capture professional-looking
images won?t make any sense.
We have smartphones with dual lenses and there are some
manufacturers that are pushing larger sensors to specifically
appeal to the photography market.
With questions like, why would anyone want to buy a
point-and-shoot camera with a tiny sensor, when
smartphones already have a decent image quality
that is good enough for most people, not to
forget a smartphone also gives one an
opportunity to immediately share it with the
With a plethora of options for achieving a
fairly good image using various apps and filters,
there is a sense of instant gratification, and one
will switch because a smartphone has more to offer,
even with a slightly bad image quality, because that
works for the consumers.
One of the best characteristics of a smartphone photography
is the idea that you can get a great image with just pressing
one button and nothing more. No exposure decision, no
tapping on the screen to set your exposure, no exposure
compensation, and no post-processing.
Features like backside-illuminated sensors and panoramic
photography have been in the smartphones for over a few
years and once one product gives a customer multiple
benefits, the world does sit up and takes notice.
It is because of the developments in sensor and lens
technology that have proven that consumers are turning to
smartphones, rather than picking up the traditional camera.
Then comes the argument of the price. A stand-alone
compact camera with a respectable feature is costlier than a
smartphone that has a wide range of features than the
When it comes to the camera manufacturers, we have seen
very little innovation over the past few years. The uptake
has been slow and with the global sales falling, the
companies are trying hard to keep their market share in this
Now the question arises whether the smartphone cameras
will replace the traditional cameras tomorrow? We don't
know that yet. Because, for many purposes and people,
they will offer cons than the pros.
Professional photographers are much more
well-versed in this area and understand what
differentiates a high-quality image from a
dedicated large sensor camera, compared to
results obtained from a smartphone.
Even if camera manufacturers attempt to
educate the general population, their marketing
efforts would fail against the marketing budgets of
much larger smartphone manufacturers which is
precisely why the camera manufacturers have a tough
Not everybody knows about things like sensor size and
optics, and not everybody will know the importance of these

Hair colour is something we all love! It doesn?t
just make you look funky, and hip and
fashionable, in fact, the right hair colour, can
make your face look 10 times brighter, without
About a month ago, I got myself ?dusted rouge??
shades in Red Violet, Violet red and Chocolate
Violet, From Schwarzkopf and I?m in love with it.
But as much as I love my hair colour for the sass
and spunk it lends to my look, the post-color care
for my curly hair, is of utmost importance!
Because, no matter what they say, chemicals do
damage your hair and curly hair, even more so!
But having said that, just because you have curly
hair doesn?t mean you can?t experiment or have
fun with your hair!
So here are a few very simple tips and tricks,
which I?ve put together after talking to global hair
styling experts Bony Sasidharan, National Key
Accounts manager at Schwarzkopf India and
Jordan Alexander, Director of Special Projects at
These few things that I?ve listed here will make
sure that you colour your curly hair with
confidence, and keep them looking prettier, and
healthier, than ever!
1: Find the right stylist ? Do your research!
How to Minimize Curl Damage and
Make your Hair Colour Last Longer
Hair colour is something
we all love! It doesn?t just
make you look funky,
and hip and fashionable,
in fact, the right hair
colour, can make your
face look 10 times
While there are some amazing stylists out there,
not everyone understands curly hair a 100%! You
need to find someone who is amazing at working
on curly hair, because being a curly yourself, you
know how differently it behaves from all other
2: Avoid Pre-lightening / Bleaching:
While this is not a post-colour tip, I wanted to
include this because it is extremely important to
know this! Bleaching can dangerously harm all
types of hair, but curly hair, even more so.
Because our hair by nature is more dry and prone
to frizz, bleaching can damage the hair fibers
making the appearance even more dry. So, while
the colour when it?s fresh looks great, as it starts
to fade out, your hair stars looking unhealthy and
What I?ve done here, is without pre-lightening!
So, it?s not impossible to get a beautiful bright
colour on virgin black hair?! Just talk to your hair
dresser and make sure he knows exactly how
subtle or popping you want it!
3: Use a ?Plex?that re-builds your fibre bonds!
There are treatments that are available in the
market now, which when added to your hair
colour, work on re-building your hair?s broken
fiber bonds, and strengthening your hair, thus,
minimizing the damage done to your hair. If
you?re pre-lightening your hair, this is especially
Schwarzkopf already has ?Fiberplex?added in all
their newer range of hair colours, which makes
sure that you don?t have to worry about whether
or not your stylist has added it. If you?re using
hair colours from other brands, ask your salon to
add ?Olaplex?in your hair colour.
Post your colour, you can also opt for regular
olaplex treatments, which is like a hair spa that
works on re-builing your damaged fiber bonds.
Alternatively, there is an ?olaplex no.3?which is a
in-home treatment which you can DIY every once
a week or once in two weeks, depending on the
damage that the hair colour has caused. The price
of the product is slightly high ? INR 2500/- for a
bottle that lasts 5 ? 6 times (on my hair length),
but I think it?s worth it instead of going to the
salon for the treatment every time. You will find
Olaplex in India at Jean Claude Biguine salons,
Looks Salons, and a few others as well.
4: Wash less often:
Bright colours bleed and run each time you wash
your hair! The more number of times you
shampoo, the more it runs! Hence, wash not more
than twice a week! My hair colour, is typically
supposed to last for about 25-30 washes! It?s now
up to me, how long I can make it last!
5: Use a sulphate free shampoo and Conditioner
specifically meant for coloured hair!
While there are some amazing sulphate free
shampoos and silicon free conditioners (which I
personally love to use), once you?ve coloured your
hair, make sure you?re using products that are
designer for colour treated hair. They?re milder
and work on helping your colour last longer.
I?m currently using the Schwarzkopf
Professional?s Bonacure Hair Therapy ? Colour
Freeze Shampoo and Conditioner. It works on
balancing the PH levels of your hair to bring it to
an optimum level, to lock in the colour pigments.
6: Cold Water Wash only!
As you probably know, and it?s something I?ve
always said? heat is bad for curly hair! And well,
hot water, is heat too, right! So never wash your
hair with hot water! Cold water, may sound scary?
but is going to protect your hair quality and your
colour ? both!
7: Avoid the SUN
Another form of heat you need to save those curly
locks from! And UV rays are, in fact, one of the
biggest culprits in making your hair colour fade
out earlier! So, make best friends with hats and
You may also use a sunscreen for your hair. For
example, I?ve been using the re-charge protein
from Cadiveu Professional?s Sol do Rio range. It
has UV protection for your hair, and also rebuilds
and repairs it! It?s available at most Jean Claude
8: Do not use heat on your curls!
I know I?ve already said that, but this basically
means NO HAIR IRONS and NO HAIR DRIERS!
Even if you use a diffuser, use it on a very low
heat setting and not more than twice a week?!
And whenever you do use it, for styling, make
sure you at least use a heat protector! I use one
from Wella?s EIMI range, what works brilliantly.
Hope you found these helpful. Do let me know if
these work for you or if you have any other
queries in the comments below.
