Ind AS to induce fluctuations in financial statements: report

first_imgMumbai, Aug 29 (PTI) Capital goods and infrastructure are among the sectors that are likely to be most impacted by the switch to the new Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS), which is expected to induce volatility in corporate financial statements, says a Crisil report.The rating agency, which surveyed 80 firms rated by it, found that the difference in reported profit in comparison to Indian GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) was in excess of 5 per cent for one-third of the firms. “The reported profitability number would be more volatile because of changes in fair valuation of derivatives and financial instruments (including equity, debt and foreign currency loan obligations), amortisation of goodwill and reclassification of actuarial gains/losses,” Crisil said. “Companies in sectors such as capital goods, infrastructure, retail, IT services and auto ancillaries are more likely to be impacted than others on account of revised accounting standards,” it said. However, it noted that the underlying cash flows and economic risks of these companies would remain unaffected as the revised accounting standards are unlikely to have a material impact on the business fundamentals. Accordingly, Crisil said that no major change in outstanding ratings as well as ratings criteria can be foreseen on account of new Ind AS. It also noted that the revised accounting standards and better disclosures will increase information availability on rated companies.In February 2015, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs had notified the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules which would help bring financial statements closer to economic reality and align them with global standards. As per the guidelines issued by the Ministry, the migration to Indian Accounting Standards is to be done in a phased manner. Under phase I, all companies (listed and unlisted) having a standalone net worth greater than, or equal to, Rs 500 crore as on March 31, 2014, will have to adopt the revised accounting standards. For these companies, 2016-17 will be the first year of adoption and the financials of 2015-16 will be published as a comparative under the revised accounting standards. While noting that the adoption of Ind AS in a phase-wise manner is the better approach, Crisil said bringing more companies — especially the unlisted ones with networth less than Rs 250 crore — under this system is crucial. The move will make financial statements comparable across companies irrespective of size, and facilitate greater access to funding from global investors, it added.

Navdeep Saini in breach of ICC Code of Conduct after Nicholas Pooran send-off

first_imgNavdeep Saini received an official warning from the International Cricket Council after he was found to be in breach of the Level 1 off the ICC Code of Conduct during a dream debut for India in the first T20 International against West Indies on Saturday.Navdeep Saini dismissed West Indian batsman Nicholas Pooran in the 4th over of the innings but according to an ICC press release, his celebration was found to have breached “Article 2.5 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel, which relates to using actions or gestures which could provoke an aggressive reaction from a batter upon their dismissal. He has also been handed one demerit point.”Saini admitted to the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Jeff Crowe – there was therefore no need for a formal hearing.Navdeep Saini had a spectuaclar debut. He picked 3 for 17 off his 4 overs and bowled a wicket-maiden in the final over as India restricted West Indies to 95 for 9 off 20 overs.India got home with 4 wickets and 16 balls to spare.Navdeep Saini was named man-of-the-match after his sensational spell broke the back of the West Indies batting line-up on a tricky pitch.Bhuvneshwar Kumar reckoned Saini would be dangerous on good bowling wickets.”He [Saini] bowls really quick and the wicket was a bit slow but he’s a quick bowler, he bowls around 145-150kmh. So we’ll get to see him bowl really quick on good bowling wickets,” Bhuvneshwar said.Read more | Would love it if some Indian players attend my wedding: Hasan AliAlso see:advertisementlast_img read more

Omar Azziman Defends Philosophys Place in Education System

Rabat – Omar Azziman, President of the Higher Council for Education, Training and Scientific Research (CSEFRS), expressed his views on the Islam Education textbook polemic, during an interview with MAP on January 27.According to Azziman, philosophy occupies an “irreversible place of choice” in the Moroccan Education System, and no one can deny the “decisive” impact of this discipline on the students’ education. The president of the CSEFRS stands firmly with those who speak to “consolidate, strengthen and develop it more.”Azziman also referred to the historic legacy of this discipline. The teaching of philosophy went through three crucial periods; from Morocco’s independence to the 1970s, when this discipline was regarded as a critical part of the Moroccan educational system, to the 1970s when it was rejected and ousted. Since the enthronement of King Mohammed VI, however, this discipline has been reintroduced and consolidated as an important component of Moroccan education, given its important role in learning critical thinking and mind formation. This process is part of the political openness and liberalization interlocked under the royal impulse.The aim, according to Azziman, is to inspire in students the “capacity for reflection, culture, perspective and critical thinking necessary to be useful to their country and to themselves.” Regarding the “excess” that is currently influencing the debate around the content of an Islamic education manual on “faith and philosophy” has given a “negative connotation” to this debate, which in itself is a “Positive” debate.“Philosophy teachers are worried about the fate of their discipline, their passion and protectiveness is quite legitimate and positive,” said Azziman. Recognizing this, however, he is calling for everyone to deal with this issue in the correct rational manner.On this matter, the president of the CSEFRS stated that the textbook revision involved 29 Islamic education textbooks, while the debate focused on a single textbook. More specifically, it focused on a citation presented in the Faith and Philosophy module, which many considered to be radical and hostile to philosophy.“Instead of taking it as a gospel word, philosophy teachers are called upon submitting this opinion for discussion,” because, explains Omar Azziman, “the most important thing is to teach students to question the ideas of others and form their own opinions.”The concerned Council committee will try to come up with a methodology for the revision of textbooks in order to avoid a recurrence of these polemics, said Omar Azziman, calling for “serenity,” and asking “not dramatize the debates.” read more

Exclusive Churches warned of deceptive cult linked to South Korea infiltrating congregations

first_imgNicky and Pippa Gumbel issued the warning A statement from the diocese added: “This group has no connection whatsoever with the Diocese of London and has no authority to promote itself among our churches. “However, a number of concerns have been raised by parishes about the group’s activities and so a call for vigilance has been issued to all churches in the diocese.”The Rev Nicky Gumbel, vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton, issued a stark warning to members of his congregation in an email last month calling Parachristo a “cult which has been recruiting from HTB and other churches”.He added: “We are now in contact with several other churches who have experience of this deceptive and potentially dangerous cult and are aware of others in the UK and around the world.”The Rev John Peters, rector of St Mary’s London, another prominent evangelical Anglican congregation, posted a warning on his church’s website also openly referring to Parachristo as a “cult” whose members attend other churches to make friends to “hang out” with.“After the friendship is established they might invite you to a Bible study in Canary Wharf,” he added. “Over time they begin to advocate beliefs that amount to control and deception.“A number of members of London churches have been pulled into this cult and gradually they are encouraged to cut all ties with friends and family.”Approached repeatedly by The Sunday Telegraph about the allegations, the directors of Parachristo replied through their lawyer with a detailed response to a list of questions.It confirmed that Parachristo shared “the same teaching” as the NHNE church and SCJ. It added: “Parachristo was set up by members of NHNE church to teach God’s revealed word through the Bible to people.”While the group does not “instruct” students to attend other churches to invite people on courses, it says they are “free to attend any church they wish … and invite their friends to a Bible study if they wish”.Asked about people giving up jobs and courses, the statement said: “Our client does not advocate or encourage deception, secrets or lies. This is one of the most common misunderstandings about our client.”Regarding the use of the word “cult” to refer to Parachristo, it said: “The mission of Parachristo is to spread the word of God. “Our client feels incredibly disappointed that HTB, which we must assume has the same ultimate aim, has embarked on what appears to be a coordinated campaign against it by using such an emotive and baseless slur.”The group was also asked at what point the link with SCJ was made clear. It replied that it did not wish to “direct students to … false allegations” about SCJ but that students were informed of the link if they asked.Pressed on two specific cases involving people telling family elaborate lies to cover up their involvement, Parachristo  replied: “Our client’s members’ personal choices are personal to them and our client will not comment upon personal matters regarding members’ private lives.” Nicky and Pippa Gumbel issued the warning Hundreds of British churches, including some of the UK’s largest congregations, have been warned against possible infiltration by a group accused of being a “cult” promoting “control and deception”.The Church of England has issued a formal alert to almost 500 parishes in London about the activities of the group known as Parachristo.The organisation, a registered charity, runs Bible study courses at an anonymous industrial unit under a Botox clinic and a personal training company in London Docklands.But it is understood to be linked to a controversial South Korean group known as Shinchonji (SCJ) – or the “New Heaven and New Earth” church (NHNE) – whose founder Man-Hee Lee is referred to as God’s “advocate”.It is claimed that some of those who become involved gradually withdraw from friends and family and actively lie about their real lives. Some are said to have also given up their jobs or university courses. Many have made trips to Korea and Switzerland.Members of the group, which has links around the world, are alleged to have visited large evangelical congregations in London inviting worshippers to special study groups.One British man is said to have gone to work with the group full time, sleeping in bunks while telling family and friends he was busy pursuing a high-flying career in the City.Among churches openly warning parishioners is Holy Trinity Brompton, one of the UK’s biggest congregations, known as the home of the Alpha Course, the short introduction to Christianity which has been used by at least 15 million people.

HTB, as it is commonly known, counts about 4,000 in the pews on a Sunday as well as having “planted” 35 other congregations.It is regarded as effectively the spiritual home of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev Justin Welby, who was a longstanding member  before his own ministry.Parachristo was formally registered with the Charity Commission this summer as a religious organisation operating “throughout England” for the benefit of “mankind”. Its official aims are stated as advancing Christianity by running Bible classes to “strengthen the commitment of members of the religion” and “enlighten” others.The group lists a business unit near Canary Wharf in east London as its headquarters, while offering a telephone number which does not operate and a website address which has been “suspended”.Those who attend its three-month course are not told initially about links with SCJ but the group strongly denies that this is deceptive.In a message to all clergy in London last month, the Diocese of London’s safeguarding team said there had been complaints about the group, adding “it has been alleged that they have links to a cult”. A number of concerns have been raised by parishes about the group’s activities and so a call for vigilance has been issued to all churches in the dioceseDiocese of London’s safeguarding teamlast_img read more

James Bulgers father urges Parole Board to prevent Jon Venables from harming

The father of murdered child James Bulger has urged the Parole Board to prevent one of his son’s killers from having the chance to “harm young children again” ahead of his impending release. Ralph Bulger told the Daily Mirror that the “predatory killer” formerly known as Jon Venables will be eligible for parole within weeks, and will leave prison with a new identity.Two-year-old James was tortured and killed by Venables and Robert Thompson, who were both aged 10, after they snatched him from a shopping centre in Bootle, Merseyside, in February 1993.Mr Bulger said: “Venables is up for parole any time now, and if it is granted he will be released into the community under a fake name and secret new identity. He is a dangerous, predatory child abuser and killer, and I am terrified he will strike again and harm another child like my James.”Venables and Thompson were jailed for life but released on licence with new identities in 2001.Venables, 36, was returned to prison in 2010 and 2017 for possessing indecent images of children.He is currently serving a 40-month sentence.Mr Bulger said he had warned against Venables’ release in 2013 but the parole board were “hoodwinked” into thinking the killer was reformed.

He has proven he will never be rehabilitated and will always remain a danger to children,” he said.”I don’t believe he will stop until he has killed again. The parole board have the power to prevent him having the chance to harm young children again.”Half his sentence will have been served in October, with the Daily Mirror reporting a parole hearing will follow at a date to be determined by the Ministry of Justice. read more

Colorspraying explosion causes major fire at Foxconn factory

first_imgApparently it took ten fire trucks to bring the flames under control, but that was achieved in around 30 minutes. As it was contained quickly there may not be much structural damage, but an investigation is sure to happen both by Foxconn and the Chinese government. There may also be some delays down the line for certain products such as Sony laptops depending on what devices were actually being color sprayed at the time.Read more at MICgadget, via TechCrunch An explosion and fire broke out at a Foxconn factory around 10:20am this morning (around 10pm EST last night) in the northeastern city of Yantai, Shandong Province, China. The exact cause of the explosion is unknown, but it happened in the area of the factory tasked with color spraying devices and has been labeled as an “improper operation of workmanship” incident.The Yantai factory is huge, Foxconn’s second largest after the Shenzhen plant, and has 80,000 workers on staff. This isn’t a Foxconn location handling Apple devices though, instead it focuses on Sony laptops, PCs, printers, cellphones, LCD TVs, and general PC component production.We don’t know if anyone was hurt, but a large explosion followed by a fire of this size must have caused some injuries. If any did occur, it will probably speed up Foxconn’s plans to replace workers with robots.In the first video below you can also hear further explosions happening as more of the equipment inside is damaged. As color paint was involved there’s bound to be a number of aerosols present in and around the location of the fire.last_img read more

Pêche Intermarché attaqué pour publicité mensongère

first_imgPêche : Intermarché attaqué pour publicité mensongèreL’association BLOOM a attaqué en justice les centres commerciaux Intermarché. Elle reproche au groupe de vendre du poisson soi-disant issu de la pêche responsable, ce qui, serait selon elle faux et qui ne signifierait de plus rien en soi puisque aucun label n’existe.Dans la campagne de publicité que l’enseigne Intermarché a mené fin 2011 dans des magazines tels que L’Express, Le Point, Marianne, Le Figaro Magazine ou encore Courrier International, le groupe indiquait pratiquer avec sa flotte une pêche respectueuse des ressources naturelles et de l’environnement. On y lisait ainsi que le consommateur pouvait “savourer sans l’ombre d’un doute et pour longtemps encore” des poissons capturés par des pratiques responsables.Mais ce n’est pas l’avis des scientifiques et des ONG qui dénoncent de façon unanime une pêche “comme étant parmi les plus destructrices au monde”, souligne l’association BLOOM. Cette dernière, qui cherche à sensibiliser sur la nécessité de protéger les écosystèmes marins, a donc décidé de porter plainte contre l’enseigne Intermarché pour publicité mensongère. Comme l’a expliqué à l’AFP Claire Nouvian, présidente de BLOOM, “Intermarché a produit une campagne de publicité qui vante les mérites de ses pratiques de pêche et qui estampille ses produits de pêche d’un label, qui n’en est pas un, de pêche responsable alors que, pour certains des poissons mentionnés explicitement, il s’agit d’espèces capturées avec des chaluts déployés dans les très grandes profondeurs des océans”.Or, pêcher en eau profonde entraîne nécessairement la capture accidentelle de certaines espèces de requins pourtant classées “en danger critique d’extinction” par l’Union internationale de la conservation de la nature (IUCN). Ainsi, des poissons tels que la lingue bleue et le sabre noir évoqués dans la publicité et pêchés en masse en eau profonde “induit les consommateurs en erreur”, souligne Mme Nouvian. L’Autorité de régulation professionnelle de la publicité (ARPP) a jugé la plainte de l’association recevable et celle-ci sera examinée vendredi par le Jury de déontologie publicitaire, une instance indépendante. Intermarché nie les accusationsÀ lire aussiL’impressionnant repas d’un héron surpris en pleine nature”J’ai porté plainte contre eux parce qu’ils tentent de faire croire à l’éco-labellisation”, a ajouté Mme Nouvian. En outre, Intermarché est acussé d’avoir habilement grimé son logo de pêche responsable, de sorte que celui-ci s’apparente à celui de l’organisme international MSC (Marine Stewardship Council), le seul actuellement habilité à être certifié par ce label dont se réclame le géant de la distribution. Une porte-parole d’Intermarché, contactée par l’AFP, a nié les allégations de BLOOM. “Nous faisons valoir devant l’ARPP la sincérité, le sérieux et le bien-fondé de notre démarche, la loyauté de notre communication, et notre légitimité en tant qu’acteur engagé dans la pêche maritime en France depuis de nombreuses années”, a-t-elle indiqué dans un courriel. Intermarché a aussi souligné qu’il ne s’agissait pas d’une procédure judiciaire et que l’ARPP n’avait pas de pouvoir de sanction. Affaire à suivre donc.Le 31 mai 2012 à 16:58 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Emotional day for Oelschlagel in the DFBPokal

first_imgThe Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper debuted for his team, but his club ended up losing in penalty kicks against Werder Bremen.Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen drew 3-3 yesterday after extra time in DFB-Pokal Third Round action.But in the penalty kicks stage, Bremen ended up winning 4-2, eliminating the hopes and dreams of BVB.On that match, goalkeeper Eric Oelschlagel debuted with his new team, and he’s bittersweet after debuting on a very complicated match that ended up in a defeat.“It was an emotional day for me. It hasn’t sunk in yet,” Oelschlagel told the club’s official website.“It’s still fresh in my mind. For me, it’s a dream come true.”“The outcome of the match is very annoying, there’s obviously a sense of frustration there,” he explained.“It was only this morning that the goalkeeping coach told me I’d play.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I had a few good moments, but the team made it easy for me too. Ultimately, for me personally, I’m able to draw a positive conclusion,” the goalkeeper concluded.Eric Oelschlagel debuted professionally with Werder Bremen II in 2014, in 2016 he moved to the senior squad for two years.Then he was transferred to Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2018 and had played only with the second squad until yesterday.“It was no surprise that it was going to be a difficult match against Werder Bremen,” coach Lucien Favre added.“After Bremen took an early lead, we controlled the game. They played very compactly. It was difficult to find the gaps.”“We played with patience and the equalizer at 1-1 before the break was deserved,” he continued.“Bremen were always dangerous. The goal we conceded at 3-3 was a little unnecessary but that’s all part of the sport – as are illnesses for our players in February.”last_img read more

Lottery the preferred game of choice for Australians in FY18

first_imgLotteries have emerged as the most popular form of gambling among Australians with 44.8% of the adult population having purchased a lottery or scratch card in the 12 months to 30 June 2018, a new study by Roy Morgan has found.The study, titled “Gambling Currency Report”, surveyed 50,000 people and found that around 10.6 million people representing 55.4% of the qualified population had gambled at some stage during the year. Load More While overall gambling participation rates have fallen in recent years, the purchase of lottery and scratch cards has held steady with 7.7 million Australians having bought a lottery ticket of any sort in the year to June 2018.However, like most forms of gambling in the period the prevalence of buying lottery tickets or scratch cards increased with age, with 55.6% of those aged 50-64 years old buying tickets in an average three month period.In contrast only 12.6% of Australians aged 18 to 24 years old and 27.2% of Australians aged 25 to 34 years old buy lottery or scratch cards over three months. 39.2% of Australians aged 35 to 49 years old buy lottery or scratch cards, putting the group firmly in line with the national average of 39.9%.Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine said that while the participation rate for lotteries and scratch cards outstrips other forms of gambling including betting, casino games, keno and slot machines, the spending patterns on lottery and scratch tickets means they only take up about 13% of Australians’ overall gambling spend compared with over 60% on slot machines.“Although overall participation rates for buying lottery and scratchie tickets have been fairly stable over the last three years, analyzing the overall spending patterns in the category shows an increase of nearly 14% in total spending on lottery and scratchie tickets driven by increases in spending on Oz Lotto, Powerball, Other Lotteries and Scratchie tickets,” Levine added.“Clearly one of the biggest drivers of spending on lottery tickets is the prospect of huge jackpots of up to $100 million … the prospect of a life-changing lotto win is massively enhanced and attracts Australians in droves in search of a lucky ticket.” Duterte shuts down Philippines lottery operations Lottery strong but International and Italy segments prove challenging for IGT in 1Q19 Pacific Online says operators still in dark as government confirms 21,000 Philippines lottery outlets closed RelatedPostslast_img read more

Best of Last Week – Renewable energy from evaporating water lefthanded kangaroos

first_imgSchematic illustration of electrically biased suspended graphene and light emission from the center of the suspended graphene. Credit: Young Duck Kim/Columbia Engineering Explore further Researchers discover first sensor of Earth’s magnetic field in an animal (Phys.org)—It was a good week for new technology as a team of researchers at Columbia University announced a way to get renewable energy from evaporating water—they have come up with two devices, one a piston-based engine that generates electricity while floating, and the other, a rotary engine that powers a tiny car. Also, another team with members from the U.S. and Korea demonstrated for the first time an on-chip visible light source using graphene—the world’s thinnest light bulb. And a team of chemists at UCLA announced that they had devised technology that could transform solar energy storage—it is a way to extend energy storage in solar cells from microseconds to weeks. © 2015 Phys.orgcenter_img This document is subject to copyright.

Citation: Best of Last Week – Renewable energy from evaporating water, left-handed kangaroos and a fasting diet that slows aging (2015, June 22) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-06-week-renewable-energy-evaporating-left-handed.html It was also an interesting week for biological research as one team of researchers at the University of Texas announced that they had discovered the first sensor of Earth’s magnetic field in an animal. They found a microscopic structure in a C. elegans, a type of worm that senses the magnetic field and to modifies its behavior based on what it finds. They suspect similar structures exist in other animals such as geese that help them navigate. Also, another team found that Saharan silver ants can control electromagnetic waves over an extremely broad spectrum range—it helps them stay cool in the hot desert. And another team of researchers with members from Russia and Australia found that Kangaroos are left-handed—which came as a surprise as the marsupials do not have a neural network in their brain that connects their left and right hemispheres. The team has also shown that handedness is not unique to primates. Another team at the University of Warwick was able to show that self-awareness is not unique to mankind—they used thought experiments to figure out which capabilities any animal must have in order to mentally simulate the environment around them, and then found examples in other animals, such as rats in a maze. And a team at Monash University has found that with people, emotional brains are “physically different” to rational ones. They found actual differences in grey matter. Also a team of researchers at Rutgers University discovered a bacterium that “breathes” uranium and renders it immobile—possibly allowing for a new way to clean up radioactive waste.And finally, if you have been looking for a way to stave off the impact of Father Time, a team of researchers at USC has found that a diet that mimics fasting appears to slow aging—mice cycled on and off the diet for a period of time lost weight, got smarter and lived longer.last_img read more

If you need to keep things private, you can lock a channel. If you need to see if your best work pal is ready to grab lunch, you can shoot him or her a direct message.If your company has offices in different locations or team members who work remotely, Slack allows any and all team members to stay in the know and quickly reach others if necessary.Google HangoutsGoogle Hangouts is an app that allows you to message, call and video-chat with other users. The most convenient part of Google Hangouts is its incorporation into your Gmail page, making it flow seamlessly into the email platform that many businesses already use.Related: 5 Tools That Keep Team Communications UntangledThis platform makes it simple for businesses to join in on conference calls or video chats with co-workers or clients in other locations. You can schedule these calls ahead of time in your Google Calendar and invite other members to join. If you happen to be on the go during a Hangout, you can always join in with your Android or Apple device through the Hangouts app.If your office is already on board the G-Suite train, Google Hangouts should be your next stop.SkypeIf you’re not into Google Hangouts, check out Skype instead. This program makes both U.S. and international calls. If you’re not feeling fancy, you can choose an “old-fashioned” call with just voices instead of video. Loading money into your account is easy, and you can hang on to it forever. The program also has a chat feature.DropboxBusinesses tend to accumulate a lot of stuff: paperwork, contracts, projects, photos, you name it. Dropbox is the home for all of that stuff, and it’s conveniently located where everyone has access.You can organize these files into different folders and groups, ensuring that your information is organized and easy to locate.

Basecamp allows you to make separate folders for all of your team’s projects. Within each folder, you can list to-dos, schedule deadlines, post files and even chat with other members.An admin can control who has access to each board. This feature can alleviate confusion: If a particular project doesn’t pertain to an employee, the information doesn’t have to clutter his/her workspace. Once all relevant team members have access, you can assign tasks to individual members with a due date and ensure that all involved know what needs to be done, and when. These users can then use filters to narrow down tasks they have due today, tomorrow, this week or further into the future.At the end of each day, Basecamp will automatically check in with users to see what they accomplished throughout the day. Each morning, Basecamp will email team members an overview of what was achieved the previous day, as well as reminders of tasks that are due soon.One more plus about Basecamp is that you can share information with your clients, too, and choose what they see and what items are private for your team.JiraWhile our team started with Basecamp, we later moved to Jira’s Kanban-style platform, which felt more accommodating for our growing team and task list. We recommend you get a feel for a variety of these project-management programs; each has pros and cons that will impact your team’s productivity.CanvaIf your company doesn’t have a tech-savvy graphic designer in-house, Canva can be an incredibly helpful tool.
