The US has a fleet of 300 electric buses. China has 4,21,000

2019-05-20

Plodding down DeKalb Avenue in Brooklyn is a bus moving under the power of an eerily quiet motor. It looks newer than most buses on the route, with a vivid digital display facing the driver and doors that part with a futuristic pneumatic swoosh. Commuters trundling aboard at rush hour don't seem to realize this is one of the few electric buses—300 last year, to be exact—in America. In China, an electric bus wouldn’t be unusual at all. Out of almost 425,000 e-buses worldwide at the end of last year, some 421,000 were in China. The global e-bus fleet ..

PUBG toll on real troops!

2019-05-14

The Central Reserve Police Force has instructed commanding officers to enforce a ban on troops playing PUBG on their mobile phones following an internal survey that showed the jawans were getting addicted to the online gaming app. A senior CRPF officer posted in the paramilitary force's Delhi headquarters said the "addiction" had "affected the jawans' operational capabilities". "Many of them have stopped socialising with their fellow jawans," the officer said. "It has also led to sleep deprivation because of reduced physical activity. The cir..

Dear Reliance Industries, Please Explain This Valuation Gap!

2019-05-14

Reliance Jio has invested close to Rs1,25,200 crore in fibre and tower assets but currently values them at Rs2,03,300 crore.   The Rs 78,100-crore gap is puzzling. How did the valuation of Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd.’s fibre and tower assets increase by that much even though some of that infrastructure is yet under development? The numbers cropped up in a Reliance Industries Ltd. investor presentation. The country’s second largest company by market capitalisation has decided to demerge the tower and fibre infrastructure....    Read more at https://www.bloo..

The Moon Is Shrinking, Wrinkling Due To Earthquakes!

2019-05-14

  Unlike our planet, the Moon doesn't have tectonic plates; instead, its tectonic activity occurs as it slowly loses heat from when it was formed 4.5 billion years ago.    As a result, the Moon has become about 150 feet "skinnier" over the past several hundred million years. ​ Washington:  The Moon is steadily shrinking, causing wrinkling on its surface and earthquakes, according to an analysis of imagery captured by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) published Monday. A survey of more than 12,000 images revealed that lunar ba..

2019-05-13

Richest Indian Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries' entry into online retailing will help expand the current 15,000 digitised retail stores to over 5 million by 2023, a study of Bank of America Merrill Lynch said. As much as 90 per cent of India's USD 700 billion retail market is unorganised, made up mostly of neighbourhood kirana stores selling groceries and other sundries. These kirana stores are keen to upgrade their tech and this is driving a wave of modernization, the study said. "This is on the back of growing competition from modern trade and..

Bangladeshis will be richer than Indians by 2030!

2019-05-13

The 2020s are set to be the Asian decade, with the continent dominating an exclusive list of economies expected to sustain growth rates of around 7%. India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Myanmar and the Philippines should all meet that benchmark, according to a research note Sunday from Madhur Jha, Standard Chartered’s India-based head of thematic research, and Global Chief Economist David Mann. Ethiopia and Côte d’Ivoire are also likely to reach the 7% growth pace, which typically means a doubling of gross domestic product every 10 years. That’ll be a boon to per-capita inco..

2019-05-13

India's richest man has sealed another deal in his battle with Amazon and Walmart for India's online retail market, which a Morgan Stanley estimate sees at $200 billion by 2028.
