Monday, February 20, 2012

Conduit, a subsidiary of the US directory assistance organisation kgb, is to create six hundred new jobs in the Welsh capital Cardiff by the end of 2012. Conduit is currently searching for 320 employees and intends to employ a further 280 this year.

In a statement, First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones described the news as “yet another indication that Welsh government policies are having a beneficial effect supporting the economy and creating jobs during these difficult times”, saying he was “delighted that Conduit is yet again expanding its operations in Wales.” Edwina Hart, Minister for Business, Enterprise, Technology and Science, said she was “pleased that using the economic levers we have at our disposal, such as creating sector-specific enterprise zones, we continue to attract and retain world class business in Wales.”

The new employees will work at Fusion Point, an office area in Cardiff city centre. Prior to this announcement, Conduit already had in excess of 1900 employees within three Welsh bases in Cardiff Gate, Swansea, and Cardiff city centre. This new contract has been created in association with a residential care service provided by British Gas.

Conduit Europe chief executive officer Denis Creighton said of the company’s decision: “Wales delivers our best performance figures period. And that’s why we’re planning to focus future growth here.”

Pakistani parliament passes bill for transgender rights

Friday, May 11, 2018

On Tuesday, Pakistan’s parliament passed a bill at Islamabad’s National Assembly which granted transgender people various civil rights. The bill, “Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act”, which was presented by Pakistan Peoples Party’s lawmaker Naveed Qamar, was approved by the senate in March, and now awaits signature of the president Mamnoon Hussain.

The bill ensures people have the right to identify themselves as male, female or as “third gender”, also known as khawaja sira in Pakistan. This identity choice is to be reflected in the National Database and Registration Authority, as well as other official documents like passports and driving licence.

Per the bill, transgender people can now cast votes, run for election, have the right to assemble, and can obtain loans for business startups. They are also eligible to inherit property per their identified gender. Transgender people are to be no longer discriminated at school, working place, for medical services, public transportation facilities, by their employers, or at private business. Separate confinement areas, jails and prisons are to be established for transgenders. Anyone found guilty of forcing transgenders to beg is to face a six-month prison term as well as 50 thousand rupees fine.

The legislation was sent to and later approved by the Council of Islamic Ideology, a government advisory body. Lahore-based activist Mehlab Jameel, who was involved in writing the bill, said the Council of Islamic Ideology “appreciated that the bill included directions on inheritance in accordance with Shari’a” law.

Last year, transgenders were included for the census count for the first time. Mehlab Jameel said, “the definition of ‘transgender’ […] was basically based on genitals” in the initial draft of the bill, written last year.

Speaking to National Public Radio, Jameel said, “This kind of development is not only unprecedented in Pakistani history, but it’s one of the most progressive laws in the whole world.” Human Rights Watch has reported at least four deaths of transgenders in the country since the beginning of 2018, and at least 57 transgenders were killed in Pakistan since 2015. Pakistan’s —reportedly— first transgender news anchor and activist Marvia Malik told Images the transgenders “are forced to dance and beg because they have no other means to make ends meet.” “My trans friends who have masters degrees don’t have jobs which is why they end up on streets or become sex workers”, Malik added.

The draft for the policy to implement this bill is not yet prepared. From the date the bill was approved, President Hussain has ten days to sign the bill or reject it.

Google launches Google Spreadsheets

Tuesday, June 6, 2006

Google has launched an online spreadsheet site, in a private beta.

The site will allow spreadsheets to be shared between up to 10 users, which is aimed to be useful to teams and small businesses. “Many people already organise information into spreadsheets. Where they are struggling is to share it” said the product manager, Jonathan Rochelle.

Google recently bought the online word-processor Writely, launched a calendar product, as well as a desktop search tool. Many see this as them straying into Microsoft‘s markets.

Google Spreadsheets uses very advanced AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript And Xml) and Client Side Scripting to mimic very effectively it’s desktop counterparts’ functions.

It is surprisingly fast, has very good formatting and advanced formula support, but best of all it has complete support for Microsoft Excel .xls files, and very good collaboration: just enter the e-mail address and you can share easily.

5 Powerful Anti Aging Ingredients Shaping 2010

By Dr.farid Mostamand

The anti-aging market is an ever-evolving one, as new ingredients come into light with even more positive results than previous substances have promised. This year proves to be no different, with numerous anti-aging ingredients already making their way to the forefront of the skincare industry. Learn about five of the latest and greatest anti-aging miracle workers so you know what to look for in your skincare formulas.


Free radicals in the environment lead to accelerated aging and an increased risk of some diseases. Their dangers have led many scientists on a never-ending quest to find the best methods for keeping these free radicals at bay. However, there is more than one type of free radical, so a variety of substances are needed to deal with the many free radicals lurking.

Lipochroman-6 is an exciting discovery because it can actually deal with two different types of free radicals at the same time. This means a bigger result for your anti-aging dollar when you find skincare products that contain this anti-aging ingredient, although you will need to shop the most current lines to find it.

Phytessence Wakame

This anti-aging ingredient is actually a type of Japanese sea kelp that has been dubbed the “beauty preserver” by natives of the region. Phytessence wakame works by inhibiting an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a necessary substance that hydrates the skin from the inside out, helping it retain moisture for a softer, suppler appearance. Loss of hyaluronic acid leads to sagging skin and wrinkles, and therefore, boosting production of this substance with anti-aging ingredients can be an effective approach to younger looking skin.


Known by its official name of adenosine triphosphate, ATP has been named by scientists as the “power behind life”. This important substance helps the cells of the body store and use energy as needed, protecting cells from harmful free radicals in the environment.

While research on ATP in anti-aging products is still fairly preliminary, the initial results have been promising enough to lead some skincare companies to include this anti-aging ingredient in their formula listings.


Tetradecylthioacetic acid, also known as TTA, may become another popular anti-aging ingredient this year. What scientists do know about this substance is that it is a powerful antioxidant that also provides serious anti-inflammatory benefits. In addition to preserving younger-looking skin, TTA may also be helpful in the treatment of acne and other skin conditions.

Tepary Bean

This bean packs a powerful nutritional punch that makes it a popular choice in many recipes today. However, scientists are also discovering that the tepary bean may play an important role in collagen synthesis, making it a popular choice as an anti-aging ingredient as well.

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in sagging skin and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Any ingredient that effectively boosts collagen production is a welcome one in an anti-aging line.

These five anti-aging ingredients are poised to become the rising stars in the anti-aging skincare industry. Keep your eyes on those formula lists, and check for these new “miracle” anti-aging ingredients the next time you are in the market for skincare products.

Cisco sues Apple for iPhone trademark

Friday, January 12, 2007

The iPhone only made its appearance as a prototype and there have been controversies aroused.

The dispute has come up between the manufacturer of the iPhone (which was resented on Wednesday for the first time) – Apple Inc. – and a leader in network and communication systems, based in San JoseCisco. The company claims to possess the trademark for iPhone, and moreover, that it sells devices under the same brand through one of its divisions.

This became the reason for Cisco to file a lawsuit against Apple Inc. so that the latter would stop selling the device.

Cisco states that it has received the trademark in 2000, when the company overtook Infogear Technology Corp., which took place in 1996.

The Vice President and general counsel of the company, Mark Chandler, explained that there was no doubt about the excitement of the new device from Apple, but they should not use a trademark, which belongs to Cisco.

The iPhone developed by Cisco is a device which allows users to make phone calls over the voice over Internet protocol (VoIP).

Scottish archaeology student discovers 5,000 year old chewing gum in Finland

Thursday, August 23, 2007

An archaeology student from Scotland has discovered a 5,000 year old piece of chewing gum on a dig in Finland.

Sarah Pickin, a 23-year-old part-time barmaid studying archaeology with Derby University, discovered the gum during a dig in the north-west of the country. The gum is a lump of birch bark tar, and still has visible tooth marks. It has been sent away for analysis, and radio carbon dating is predicted to show the gum to be 5,000 years old.

Ms Pickin said of her discovery “I had heard of ancient chewing gum being found before on previous European digs so when I found it in the trench, it was the first thing that crossed my mind.

“However, it looks just like a dirty piece of modern chewing gum with no smell or taste and I was also worried it could have been a bit of fossilised poo, so I asked a few of the other students to make sure.

“Thankfully they agreed that it was birch-bark gum and it’s now away to be carbon dated and have the teeth marks analysed before it goes on display.”

It will be displayed in Finland’s Kierikki centre, which is devoted to finds from the area. Sarah Pickin also discovered a piece of an amber ring, a slate arrowhead and a hair needle. All the finds date to the Neolithic period.

It is believed the gum was chewed as an aid against gum disease, as it contains antiseptics.

McDonald’s restaurant to close all locations in Iceland

Thursday, October 29, 2009

File:El Maco.jpg

McDonald’s, the international fast food restaurant chain, will cease all operations in Iceland by the end of October.

The company blames the closure of the nation’s three outlets on drastically increased costs of importing its food ingredients, which mainly came from Germany. McDonald’s corporation says the current economic slump is to blame for rising costs, along with the “unique operational complexity” of keeping them open.

The restaurant, with its distinctive Golden Arches, began its Icelandic operations in 1993. Its outlets were operated by Lyst, a franchising company owned by Jon Gardar Ogmundsson. There are no plans to reopen any of the locations.

“[Stores have] never been this busy before… but at the same time profits have never been lower. It just makes no sense. For a kilo[gram] of onion[s], imported from Germany, I’m paying the equivalent of a bottle of good whisky,” said one Gardar Ogmundsson, the owner of the firm Lyst, to the BBC.

Lyst hopes to operate a new chain of restaurants, which will be supplied by domestic rather than imported food products.

McDonald’s, which operates in 119 countries globally, previously closed its sole retail outlet in Barbados in 1996 after only six months in operation, and withdrew from an additional seven countries in 2000 — including Bolivia — to reduce costs.

Portable Cabins In Australia}

Portable Cabins in Australia

Abhishek Kumar Khandelwal

Portable cabins in Australia serve a very useful purpose for the construction company. They enable the company to provide good, well constructed and well equipped cabins to their prominent staff members. Portable Cabins in Australia come in different sizes supplied by different manufacturers based on the requirements of the end customer. They are made of standard aluminium windows, electrical fittings, and plywood and glass interiors. They are used at construction sites where the company has constructed a temporary office instead of the usual permanent office. These cabins can be generally found at construction sites of infrastructure companies, residential developers who have to house some of their staff members at the construction site till the construction work is completed. Portable cabins are generally occupied by project managers who sometimes have to engage in lot of discussions related to the project and needs privacy for conducting these discussions with their staff members. The usage of the Portable Cabins has increased manifold in the last twenty years.

Portable cabins in Australia are made up of composite material or a type of plastic made by fine fibres made of glass. The composite material is commonly called by its name of reinforcing fibres (fibreglass). The plastic that is generally used for construction of Portable Cabins is thermosetting, most of the times polyester or white plastic or other types of plastic like: epoxy is used. The two different types of plastics used in the construction of Portable Cabins overcome the shortcomings of each other. On one hand plastic resins are rain resistant on the other hand epoxy is tensile proof and is a good resistant during difficult times. Portable cabins in Australia are manufactured by all the leading construction material suppliers. The prices of Portable Cabins have declined by thirty percent in the last ten years. The prices have declined because of higher competition in the cabin manufacturing industry. The number of companies in this industry has increased four times during the last five years.Portable cabins can be very useful when you are conducting renovation of your home or your office premises. Shifting your entire office to a brand new location is a must to ensure that productivity remains high. Expecting your staff to work in the midst of renovation does not make sense. On the other hand, going in for completely new establishment just for a few months does not make sense either. This option will involve very high initial costs. On the other hand, purchasing portable cabins or renting the same will be a much better option. For starters, you can make use of the extra space in and around your home or office and continue working there. For employees traveling from afar, this can be a huge factor to continue despite the renovation. On the other hand, expecting your employees to shift to a new office for a few months and then expecting them to return after renovation is done does not make sense.
