London | Updated: March 4 2017 11:58 am According to a recent research headers in football are one of the main causes of concussion symptoms (Illustration: CR Sasikumar) Top News A large study is being funded by Britain’s football associations to try to determine whether players are more prone to developing dementia The announcement was made on Friday by the associations after they used a meeting of football’s lawmaking body to back the introduction of electronic devices on the sidelines to enhance player welfare including assessing potential concussions by watching video replays The renewed focus on degenerative damage to footballers’ brains follows research published last month that highlighted potential dangers of repeated blows to the head in football Six of 14 former players were found to have signs of Alzheimer’s disease after their brains underwent post-mortem examinations A greater sample size is required for fresh research and English Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn said that a “massive” study led by university researchers will receive “six figures” in funding without specifying further as to the estimated amount “We’re obviously taking it seriously but one has to be proportionate” said Glenn who was alongside his counterparts from the Scottish Welsh and Northern Irish federations “The research that we’re scoping out … is really to look at one simple thing: Is the incidence of dementia greater in professional footballers or former professional footballers than it is in the population as a whole You need lots and lots of data on that” The research published last month by University College London and Britain’s National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery showed that four brains were found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) pathology That was a possible consequence of repeated impacts to the brain including heading the ball and concussion injuries from head-to-head collisions “The ball today weighs 450 grams _ it’s a different ball” Glenn said “What might the impact be of heading the ball today” In 2015 the US Soccer Federation recommended a ban on headers for players 10 and under in a bid to address concerns about the impact of head injuries The United States has also seen a $1 billion settlement between the NFL and thousands of its former American football players who have been diagnosed with brain injuries linked to repeated concussions “It’s a massively different game” Glenn said “We have to be proportionate but also curious It is so different you have to expect our response will be different to the NFL’s” Glenn was speaking at a news conference at Wembley Stadium after a meeting of The International Board Association Board including FIFA President Gianni Infantino The global governing body said last month that “to our very best knowledge there is currently no true evidence of the negative effect of heading or other sub-concussive blows” “If you want zero risk in life you shouldn’t drive a car anymore you shouldn’t go skiing anymore you shouldn’t practice any sport” Infantino said “When these studies are done let’s wait for the results” At least four members of

television show by another channel nearly two years ago while I was doing my music and had my representation in the US My hands were full then However I had a shot a reading for the show whose footage the person doing casting for ABC saw While I was shooting Gundey she pitched the idea of Quantico to me and signed a talent development deal Your titular role in Mary Kom and that of an FBI agent in Quantico seem physically very demanding Mary Kom was physically demanding but not Quantico I am not solving crimes in the show I have been framed as a terrorist and I have to absolve myself The show is more of a drama than a crime thriller In fact Prakash Jha’s Gangaajal 2 in which I play a cop would have more action The Quantico trailer starts with a sex scene Did you have any qualms about doing it It’s one shot of my knees one of the car and another of the two of us together In reality it is quite technical Today in cinema inhibition has been dropped If you say yes to a script you have to do what it requires However I don’t know where this story is headed Currently you are doing two movies with Ranveer Singh DDD and Bajirao Mastani Do you like to work with co-stars and an environment you are familiar with I believe it does not matter While I am on a film it’s like a family then I move to another But when I meet them again it is like we had never lost touch It’s the nature of the business Ranveer and I have a great camaraderie As actors I am happy that we got to play such diverse parts — from being brother and sister lovers; to mature husband and wife You entered movies at the age of 18 How have you honed your craft My job was my film school I stumbled I dusted myself and stood up again I made mistakes and then moved on It is really important to be resilient I have been an achiever I hate to fail at anything If you ask to me fix a phone I will work on it till it is fixed It’s that drive which pushes me to achieve different milestones Singing however is something I always did Going by your Twitter posts it seems a very healthy camaraderie exists among the present-day female actors There is a stereotype that when two women work together there are cat-fights while in case of two men it is bromance Such an assumption sounds sexist Are we not professionals Do we not take our job seriously I can’t speak for everyone but I have always gotten along well with

four-inch figurine of your body or in other words a 3D selfie reported Wiredcom Making one of these figurines requires a massive pile of hardware and software – 54 DSLRs 54 lenses a complex 3D modelling pipeline and an $80000 full-colour 3D printer not to mention a room-size scanning booth The company has four 3D scanning booths (called “Doob-licators”) scattered in strategic locations throughout the world There’s one in Dusseldorf one in Tokyo one at Santa Monica Place in Los Angeles and one in New York City’s Chelsea Market The DOOB shop in New York has been a pretty big hit The Doob-licator saw about 500 customers over the winter holiday season Michael Anderson CEO of DOOB 3D USA was reported as saying by Wired About 10 percent of the booth’s customers got their pets Doob-licated “At first (people got DOOBs made) mostly on a whim Now at least two thirds of our customers have planned ahead to get a DOOB” Anderson said Each Doob-licator is outfitted with 54 Canon EOS Rebel T5i DSLRs arranged in nine columns of six cameras each A customer steps in strikes a pose and the Doob-licator operator fires all the cameras at once That creates a full-body scan in a fraction of a second The next step involves feeding all those 18-megapixel images through the company’s proprietary software which creates a 3D model of the subject The printing process requires more patience A high-resolution laser-sintering 3D printer uses a resin polymer material and the full range of CMYK colour is added to each powder layer as it’s printed With a top printing speed of 11

the ability to fire employees PTI Related News India’s economically questionable employee benefits regime means that the take-home salary of someone earning Rs 55000 per month is only 9 per cent less than their gross salary while the take-home salary of a person who earns Rs 5500 a month is 49 per cent less than their gross salary While labour law reform is often equated with the ability of employers to freely hire and fire their employees India will benefit more from fixing the current regressive benefits regime which requires six-times greater deductions for a person earning a 10-times lower salary is not competitive and has ensured that 100 per cent of net job creation since 1991 has taken place in the informal sector This war on formal employment has poisonous consequences — lower tax collection uneven productivity poor working conditions lack of minimum wage enforcement and small firm size (80 per cent of India’s garment production takes place in units employing less than 15 people while 80 per cent of China’s takes place in units with more than 200 employees) Formal employment growth will be explosive if only five changes are made One the mandatory 12 per cent employee provident fund contribution must be abolished That provident funds are a means of providing social security is a myth The median retirement amount in India is Rs 25000 Poor management and harassment by the Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has created 50 million orphan accounts and unclaimed balances that are no longer being credited with interest The “myopia argument” — that low wage workers need to be protected from themselves — is superfluous because payroll deduction rates can’t be higher than the savings rate Instead of raising the salary cap abolishing this 12 per cent will raise take-home incomes and eliminate employees’ reluctance for formal employment Two the employee pension scheme must be scrapped and we must move back to the pre-1995 status In 1995 the EPFO diverted 80 per cent of employer contributions towards the poorly designed employee pension scheme (EPS) EPS’s liabilities were at last count officially estimated at Rs 50000 crore more than its assets The EPFO’s attempts to fill this hole by reducing benefits are a default and employees should be allowed to opt out of EPS and revert back to pre-1995 defined contribution accounts EPS not only has the birth defect of benefits and contributions being defined but it also provides a lower monthly pension relative to a deferred annuity from LIC or bank interest on the retirement lump sum Making the minimum pension Rs 1000 — as was done last week — is election politics It will only make things much worse Three employees must be allowed to choose between the EPFO and the national pension scheme The EPFO is the most expensive government securities mutual fund in the world with costs equivalent to 44 per cent of contributions Most gilt funds — even public sector ones — charge 025 per cent of contributions Giving employees an option to pay their monthly provident fund dues to either the EPFO or the national pension scheme will create a portable back-pack pension with higher competition and lower costs Four employees must be allowed to choose between the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) and health insurance The health insurance programme run by the ESIC provides poor value for money with only 48 per cent of contributions being paid out as benefits Most private and public health insurance plans have a 100 per cent-plus claims ratio The unfair payout ratio has allowed ESIC to unfairly accumulate Rs 28000 crore in reserves which are currently invested in government securities and bank deposits Employees must be given an option to opt out of the ESIC programme and pay their monthly contributions to any IRDA-regulated health insurance plan Five the five-year limit must be abolished or gratuity must be removed Gratuity is a defined benefit lump sum payable at the time of retirement to the employee It gives the employee 15-days of salary for every year of service But this benefit is only applicable after five years of service and as the employment contract has morphed from a lifetime contract to a taxicab relationship most employees with short tenures do not get gratuity benefits The political optics of abolishing gratuity make that infeasible It is better to remove the five-year limit and create a monthly or annual payment option to create transparency and fairness since gratuity is built into most cost-to-company calculations Benefits regimes are innovating globally because of demographic challenges and a realisation that employee benefits are not “over and above” gross salary but come out of it Chrysler is owned by retirees who got their stake in lieu of unfunded pensions Britain recently introduced a new employment contract for “employee owners” who surrender the right to redundancy payments in exchange for capital gains-exempt equity This scheme will probably fail for reasons similar to why “equity for land” failed in India — what the price should be who bears project-failure risk who gives liquidity etc But policymakers trying to catalyse job creation in France Spain USA Japan Brazil and China agree that one size does not fit all and are experimenting with giving employees more control over how they are paid Informal employment is the slavery of the 21st Century Only 8 per cent of India’s labour force gets minimum wages employment benefits safe working conditions and leave benefits Increasing formal job creation is India’s biggest challenge and the right place to start that tricky journey is fixing our toxic employment benefits regime The writer is chairman Teamlease Services

Ambani will be addressing the employees and stakeholders of the company and the event will be broadcast live at 130 pm on the company’s social media channels The official Jio handle on YouTube is flameoftruth2014 and there’s another one called Jio Digital Life which will have the livestream LIVE UPDATES Reliance Jio Play the company’s own app for streaming movies will also have the announcement being broadcast live So what is expected from the announcement today For starters reports indicate that Reliance Jio’s Welcome offer could be extended to March 2017 The offer gives customers free unlimited voice video calling SMS and unlimited daily data However a TRAI order had said that Reliance will have to end the Jio 4G Welcome offer by December 4 Interestingly a Jio spokesperson said the Jio Welcome Offer or JWO “benefits of free unlimited Voice and data will be available to all subscribers up to December 31 2016” But the “JWO will be available to new consumers for subscription till December 3 2016” the spokesperson said This means new customers who buy a Jio SIM post December 3 won’t be able to get the free offer and will have to try out the paid tariff plans Reliance Jio Payments Bankis another possible announcement that could be made by the company As Indian Express reported today Jio Payments Bank Ltd a joint venture of Reliance Industries Ltd and State Bank of India was incorporated on November 10 according to documents filed with the Registrar of Companies (RoC) In September 2015 the payments bank had received an in-principle approval from the Reserve Bank of India with a validity of 18 months within which it was to be set up Rival Airtel’s Payments bank has already started on a pilot basis in Rajasthan Announcement of Jio Fiber is

another service called Jio Fiber which is much-awaited Jio Fiber is promising 1GBps speed for wired broadband in home and is already being tested in some parts of India While the Jio launch has seen people line up to get SIMs there are issues with speeds and call connectivity that have cropped up since the number of subscribers went up Since Reliance Jio is entirely a 4G LTE based network high-speed internet is crucial to its success but post the launch it has found it difficult to maintain this In October Speedtest app maker Ookla’s data had shown that they saw a significant jump in the number of speed-tests being done on Jio 4G LTE network from January to September 2016 Speedtest’s data also showed that Reliance Jio’s mean average speeds have been declining since it got more users on board According to the data speeds for “4G capable phones actually decreased 23% month-over-month from 1131 Mbps to 877 Mbps continuing a downward trend for 2016” The report also adds that Reliance Jio’s claims of 135Mbps as average speed across the board are still a dream and that even the “top 10% of tests averaged out at 1777 Mbps in September” Declining speeds aside Reliance Jio has been seen as a great disruptor in the Indian smartphone and data market According to research firm IDC India has seen a boost in 4G smartphone shipments with Jio’s entry Reliance has not yet confirmed

Sameer arrested on Monday The court remanded Sameer to ED custody until February 8 “The money trail is Rs 870 crore Of this Rs 114 crore has been recovered The money was transferred in several accounts set up by the accused and siphoned off” said advocate Hiten Venegaonkar who represented the ED Share This Article Related Article He added that three summons had been issued to Sameer in September November and December last year directing either him or his authorised representative to report to the ED office with all necessary documents “He failed to appear Only letters were written He refused attendance There was no cooperation with the investigation” Venegaonkar said “It is alleged that the Bhujbals accepted cash in lieu of projects to contractors channelled such illegal cash into various companies and integrated it into business activities of the group companies” the remand copy read The agency recorded statements of various employees and co-directors of companies “Chartered Accountant Sunil Naik deposed that shares of Parvesh Construction Pvt Ltd and Armstrong Energy Pvt Ltd fully owned and controlled by Bhujbals were sold to dubious entities against cash at unrealistic high premiums of Rs 990 per share and funds to the tune of Rs 75 crores and Rs 50 crores respectively were channelled” the remand copy read “Suresh Jajodia market operator stated that as

The bank has given the same reply on a query sought by the agency on the other companies the ED has said “It appeared that the share purchasing entities were bogus and used by Bhujbals to channelise

premium with the help of operators and chartered accountants” the remand copy said During Monday’s raids by the agency at nine locations statements of directors of five companies related to the scam

benefited Kante’s energetic displays and that next season will be different (Source: Reuters) Top News Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante’s displays this season have spurred comparisons with ex-Blues star Claude Makelele But Makalele – Kante’s French compatriot – is reluctant to anoint him as his successor just yet saying Kante has not faced enough trials and tribulations in his career so far Kante 26 was a vital part of Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side as they marched towards the Premier League title this year It was Kante’s second championship in a row having helped Leicester City to one of the most improbable triumphs in European football in 2016 Kante’s performances earned him the Football Writers Association’s Player of the Year gong in May adding to a list of accolades But Makelele 44 equally diminutive combative and a two-time Premier League winner with Chelsea before retiring in 2010 is cautious about saying he has passed the baton – for now “At the moment Kante is special and one of the best midfielders The problem is I played 25 years in football at this level and comparisons are being made in a bad way” he told Reuters in an interview in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa during a publicity tour for his sponsor Heineken With Chelsea relieved of European duty this season having failed to qualify Makelele said the absence of a tougher schedule had benefited Kante’s energetic displays and that next season will be different “This season he did not play in the Champions League Every four days there will be games With the national team there will be games There will be a lot of games He needs to get that experience” he said “When he is at that level he will not run 90 minutes all the time He will need to listen to the rhythm the way he plays This will be key for

Juventus on Saturday in a bid to claim a 12th European Cup title Makelele expected an even contest between the star-studded sides but said the difference would come from key tactical decisions “I think Juventus have made a lot of progress For the last three years they have been fighting for this trophy Now I think they are ready to fight Real won La Liga and before they have won the Champions League They are comfortable and know how to play a final It is normal for them” he said “It is 50-50 But I think the managers (Zinedine Zidane of Real or Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus) will make
