  • Rupee gains, off record low as current account deficit narrows




    The rupee gained on Thursday, backing off from a record low hit in the previous session, as the country's current account deficit narrowed in the January-March quarter, easing some concerns about the funding of the deficit.


    The rupee rose to 60.36/38 to the dollar at 9:00am, recovering from a record low of 60.76 hit on Wednesday.

    The currency closed at 60.7150/7250 in the previous session.

    The current account deficit narrowed to $18.1 billion in January-March versus a $21.7 billion deficit in the same quarter year ago.

    Airtel to slash 4G data rates by 31%

  • Sunday, 23 June 2013
  • Harmeet Saini
  •   Bharti Airtel will cut 4G data charges by 31%, in an aggressive bid to boost mass appetite for fourth-generation wireless broadband services and also make life more difficult for future challengers. Skeptics, however, wonder if the move to offer 4G services at 3G rates will actually translate into higher data usage or help expand its modest 4G subscriber base. 

    The move comes barely a week after India's biggest mobile phone company by customers and revenue cut 2G data charges by nearly 90% to shore up data usage and spur revenue streams. It also comes at a time when the Sunil Mittal-founded telco has been adding fewer customers than closest rivals, Vodafone andIdea Cellular over the past two months. 

    A top company executive said, "Airtel will offer 4G speeds at 3G price-points to make fourth generation wireless broadband services more affordable and stiffen the challenge for new competition," without naming Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Jio Infocomm, which is slated to roll out 4G services nationally in a year. 

    Bharti Airtel will lower its base 4G data plan from 650 to 450 to offer "more value" to customers in Kolkata, Bangalore, Pune and Chandigarh where it runs fourth generation wireless broadband services. 

    Under the revised data tariff plan, entry-level customers will be allowed 2GB, 3GB and 4GB of free data usage at faster 4G speeds at 3G data charges of 450, 650 and 750 a month respectively. But they won't have access to Bharti's 4G entertainment library services, which will be reserved for customers on higher data plans, from 999 and above. 

    Airtel customers on these higher-end 4G plans will have free access to a digital library of 1,000-odd movies and 100 games evolved in partnership with BigFlix and Indiagames, said another company executive who did not wish to be named. At the highest end, Airtel 4G customers on 2,999 and 4,799 data plans will be offered bigger free usage limits of 45 GB and 80 GB compared with the earlier levels of 30 GB and 50 GB respectively. 

    Mahesh Uppal, director of Com First (India), a consultancy dealing in telecom regulatory affairs, believes Airtel's move "was inevitable" to boost mass appetite for 4G and also make life more difficult for its future challenger, Reliance Jio Infocomm. 
    "Data markets need to be developed, and a logical way of doing that is by increasing affordability since 4G has not seen meaningful traction in India yet in the absence of an evolved devices ecosystem. In that sense, Airtel's decision to cut data charges also makes potential 4G tariff offers from new competition like Reliance Jio Infocomm less attractive," said Uppal. 

    But sector analysts wonder whether Airtel's decision to offer 4G speeds at 3G rates will actually translate into higher data usage or expand its modest 4G subscriber base. Airtel declined to reveal its 4G customer count but industry circles reckon it is below 15,000 a year after Bharti became the first telco to launch 4G in India. 

    For instance, Uppal concedes that "bundling bigger dollops of GBs" might not immediately result in market expansion or enhance data usage since 4G customers seldom exhaust their free limits as movie downloads and multimedia apps are yet to catch on in a big way with the masses. 

    Fomer VSNL chairman & managing director B K Syngal, who is now senior principal at telecom consultancy firm Dua Consulting, agrees. "It is a consumer-friendly move to increase penetration but is unlikely to result in serious market expansion since Airtel's 4G operation is confined to only four cities," he said.

    Scientists working to develop most powerful cyber security

  • Tuesday, 18 June 2013
  • Harmeet Saini



  • Australian scientists are working on Quantum mechanics which is being applied to computing in order to develop most powerful and impenetrable cyber security method ever conceived. The team behind the new technology has been tasked with creating an impenetrable network for the Australian government, according to a Australian Broadcasting Corporation report.
    The technique pioneered by a team of scientists in Sydney, is called quantum cryptography. "One of the things you can do with the quantum computing is to expand the data security capabilities a country has," said Morello from University of New South Wales.
    Traditionally, cryptography involves three main parties - a sender, the recipient and the eavesdropper or hacker. Hackers at present are able to intercept communications without the sender or recipient knowing, Morello added. But quantum cryptography will be able to prevent access by detecting hackers and destroying or altering messages as hackers try to obtain them.
    "Anyone who attempts to eavesdrop the connection and essentially tap the data would destroy the data on the spot," he said. The problem however is actually in making the computer, he said adding that to make a quantum chip a single phosphorous atom is introduced into a regular silicon chip. The atom's magnetic core - its nucleus is completely isolated from the outside world because it so minute.
    "What we have shown is that we can write and read quantum information in the magnetic orientation of the nucleus," said Morello.
    To give an idea of scale, a computer with 300 quantum bits is thought to be able to contain a level of classical information equivalent to all the elementary particles of the universe.
    "What we are reliant on at the moment is the fact that it's just too hard to decrypt," said Vikram Sharma, the chief of QuintessenceLabs. However he added that in future through things like quantum computers these codes could be broken. Cyber security is high on government's agenda following the last month reports on Chinese hackers allegedly gaining access to Australian government systems.

    Widely used drugs to cost up to 50% less

  • deepak kumra
  • Widely used drugs to cost up to 50% less



    Prices of widely used medicines like painkillers, anti-infectives, antibiotics and anti-cancer and cardiovascular drugs are slated to come down by up to 50% by July-end. The drug pricing regulator, National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA), on Monday issued a notification to regulate prices of 150-odd essential medicines.

    The notification follows the drug pricing control order, mandated under the national pharma policy, being cleared last month. According to the national pharma policy, prices of 652 formulations under 27 therapeutic areas like anti- infectives (cetrizine), cardiac (aten), gastro-intestinal medicines (ocid), painkillers (paracetamol) and anti-diabetic drugs (insulin) are expected to go down.

    Others in the national list of essential medicines include anti-fungal, anti-tuberculosis, anti-leprosy, anti-hypertensives and cancer drugs. Once implemented, it will result in prices of drugs coming down by nearly 15-20% on an average.

    The changes in prices will be effective after 45 days from the date of issue (of the NPPA notification) to allow the trade to liquidate stocks with existing prices and give time to manufacturers to revise the prices on packs. Over the next few weeks, the NPPA will issue ceiling prices, capping more drugs according to the policy. This was the first notification issued by the NPPA.

    According to the NPPA notification, prices of popular pain and fever medicine paracetamol will go down by nearly 40%, antibiotics (azithromycin) by 40%, cardiac drugs (losartan and atorvastatin) by 45%.

    Cancer medicines, which are the one of most expensive therapies, will drop by up to 50%. For instance, the NPPA has fixed the ceiling price of doxorubicin 50 ml injection, used in cancer, at Rs 1,145, 50% cheaper.

    The government notified the Drug Prices Control Order (DPCO) 2013 on May 15, replacing the 1995 order, which empowers the NPPA to issue ceiling prices of 348 essential drugs, while the existing policy controls only 74 bulk drugs.The policy was cleared by the Cabinet in November last year, but was delayed due to the absence of the DPCO being issued.

    The DPCO 2013 will regulate prices of drug formulations on the basis of a market-based mechanism, as against a cost-based system which existed till now.

    Manufacturers will have to reduce the prices where they are selling the drug more than the ceiling price fixed by the regulator, while those priced below the cap, would not be allowed to hike prices.

    The policy uses a market-based pricing method—'the simple average method'—for determining the ceiling price of all the molecules (drugs) under a particular therapeutic area with over 1% market share. The scope of the policy is around 18-20% of the Rs 72,000 crore pharmaceutical market; coupling it with the existing medicines already under price control, the coverage increases to around 30%.

    Google Balloons: 7 things to know

  • deepak kumra

  • Google is experimenting with helium-filled balloons that beam the internet from the sky. Developed over a period of 18 months, these jellyfish-shaped balloons are part of Project Loon that Google has commissioned them in New Zealand.

    Here are 7 things about Google's internet beaming balloons.

    1.)  What are Google Balloons

    The helium-filled balloons are made from a thin polyethylene film and are 15 meters (49 feet) in diameter when fully inflated

    2.) Where are they present

    They float in the stratosphere about 20 kilometers (12 miles) above the Earth.

    3.) How Google Balloons work

    The balloons would sail on the stratosphere's winds in a continuous circuit around the globe. The balloons come equipped with flight computers, and Google would control the balloons' altitude from the ground, keeping them moving along a desired channel by using different winds at different heights.

    4.) Are Google Balloons revolutionary?

    Google says past attempts to control balloons have involved tethering them or using expensive motors to keep them in place. They say simply sailing with the winds was one of the company's breakthrough ideas.

    5.) What is the advantage?

    Google says the balloons have the potential to provide internet access far more cheaply, quickly and widely than traditional underground fiber cables. 

    One downside is that computer users on the ground would need to install a receiver to get the signal.

    6.) Reach of Google Balloons

    The transmitter on each balloon would beam down the internet to an area about 1,250 square kilometers (780 square miles) - twice the size of New York City.

    7.) Challenges Google Balloons face

    Managing the flight of just one balloon in our complex and ever-changing atmosphere is a huge challenge. Trying to harmonize an entire fleet of thousands of them will be mind-boggling.

  • Micromax Canvas 4



    Indian smartphone manufacturerMicromax has released a teaser of its upcoming handset called Canvas 4. The company has posted two teaser videos of the device on its official YouTube channel. The videos, with tagline "Can Life Be Endless," show a smartphone with a sleek body and 13MP camera.

    Expected to be an update to the popular Canvas HD smartphone, the upcoming Micromax Canvas 4 is speculated to have an eight-core processor, like Samsung Galaxy S4. The YouTube channel of Micromax states that pre-bookings for the device will start from June 28.

    Micromax in January said that it will launch a total of 30 smartphones this year. Since then, it has rolled out devices like Canvas HD, Canvas 3D, Canvas Music, Bolt A35 and Canvas Viva.

    A vast and diverse range at affordable price points is part of Micromax's ambitious plans to emerge as the largest phone seller in India, ahead of Nokia and market leader Samsung. In January, it claimed to have shipped 1.98 lakh phablets in Q4 2012, as compared to 1.89 lakh units sold by the South Korean manufacturer Samsung.

    In smartphones, Micromax has scored quite well recently with its entry-level Canvas 2 A110 and mid-range Canvas HD A116 phablets respectively. The company is facing a severe shortage of Canvas HD and has not been able to get its supplies in order, leading to a waiting period of up to two weeks.

    Too Much Sugar Can Cause Heart Failure

  • Harmeet Saini
  • Researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), have revealed that consuming too much sugar can greatly increase the risk of heart failure.

    In fact, a previous study conducted by researchers at Emory University School of Medicine and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), found thatpeople who consume high levels of added sugar, such as in processed foods and beverages, are much more likely to have higher heart disease risk factors.

    The study, which was published in theJournal of the American Heart Association, says that just one molecule of glucose metabolite glucose 6-phosphate (G6P) can lead to improper function of the heart. 

    G6P builds up when people consume too much sugar and starch and causes severe stress to the heart.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 5 million people suffer from heart failure in the U.S. each year. Approximately half of people diagnosed with the condition die within a year of diagnosis and there are over half a million new cases of heart failure in the country every year. 

    Researchers reported at the American Heart Association's 50th Annual Conference on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention, that the increase in sugar consumption has led to more diabetes and heart disease over the past decade.

     
    Heinrich Taegtmeyer, M.D., D.Phil., principal investigator and professor of cardiology at the UTHealth Medical School, said:

    "Treatment is difficult. Physicians can give diuretics to control the fluid, and beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors to lower thestress on the heart and allow it to pump more economically. But we still have these terrible statistics and no new treatment for the past 20 years."


     
    The research team, led by Taegtmeyer, first conducted preclinical trials in animals and then moved on to test tissue taken from patients who had a piece of their heart muscle removed so that they could place a a left ventricle assist device.

    Results of the trials revealed that G6P can cause significant damage to the heart.

    Taegtmeyer said that when people have high blood pressure, or other diseases, the heart is already stressed, so when it takes in excess glucose its condition only worsens and it can become severely injured.

    There are drugs, such as rapamycin (an immunosuppressant) and metformin (a diabetesmedication) that can block the signaling of G6P and improve cardiac power. 

    A study published in Aging Cell showed that mice suffering from age-related heart diseaseexperienced a significant improvement in cardiac function following a three-month treatment with the FDA-approved drug rapamycin.

    Taegtmeyer added: "These drugs have a potential for treatment and this has now cleared a path to future studies with patients."
