Kent DriscollAPTN NewsPaul Quassa has been voted out as premier of Nunavut during a recall motion Thursday.Under Nunavut’s consensus government system, regular members can remove a premier with a majority vote.Now that Quassa is out, the Members of the legislative assembly will meet later Thursday afternoon to discuss the next steps.Given Nunavut is not allowed to be without a premier, a leadership forum is likely to follow soon.While previous premiers in Nunavut have faced similar leadership reviews part way through their term, this is the first time a recall vote has been debated in the territory’s assembly.It is also the earliest a premier has faced such a challenge – Quassa only took office in November 2017.Quassa’s government has faced questions on spending throughout this term, the highest profile one being the Northern Lights Trade Show spending.The Nunavut Government spent $570,000 to send 73 staff and officials to the bi-annual trade show in Ottawa.Part of that tab was a $7,000 car service to shuttle the Premier around Ottawa.Regular members, the de facto opposition under Nunavut’s consensus system of no political parties, have questioned the spending.Quassa defended the expense in the assembly, saying “you have to spend money to make money” and calling the meetings in Ottawa important for the government to establish relationships and pursue funding.He defended the car service by pointing out that in order to access Parliament Hill by car, you need a service with a level of security clearance.Another spending issue has been front and center in this recent assembly sitting, this one about money not spent.The current government pulled funding for a proposed road connecting Grays Bay, Nunavut to an existing mining road in the Northwest Territories.While initially claiming that the federal government denied funding first, it has come out in the assembly that the Nunavut government was the first to reverse course on the 227 km all season road.The project had moved ahead under Peter Taptuna’s time as premier, but died under Quassa’s.Taptuna is from the Kitikmeot region in western Nunavut where the road would be created.Quassa is from Baffin Island in the east, and western MLAs have become frustrated with what they perceive as the abandonment of a vital economic driver for the region.Finance Minister Joe Savikataaq defended the decision as the new government sticking to its priorities, saying in the Assembly, “all our money comes from one pot. If we spend here, we have none for there.”The motion to remove was made Tuesday morning by Arviat MLA John Main, on behalf of the Regular Member’s Caucus. There are 13 members of that caucus, and only 8 members of the cabinet including Premier Quassa.While those numbers may be daunting to Quassa, Nunavut politicians have a history of letting them continue.Nunavut’s three previous premiers, Paul Okalik, Eva Aariak and Peter Taptuna, have all faced leadership reviews at the request of the assembly.All three held on as premier.The difference, in this case, is that those reviews were held halfway through their term as a legislated part of the consensus system.This review is unique as it is the earliest and the first ever presented as a recall vote.If successful on Thursday, the vote would trigger an immediate leadership forum where a new premier would be chosen.
The Ohio State men’s soccer team (2-6-4, 0-2-1) ended a four-game scoreless streak when it tied the No. 18 Michigan State Spartans, 1-1, in double overtime. The Buckeyes have now gone eight matches without recording a win.Buckeye coach John Bluem said he was impressed with the way the team fought back against the Spartans.“I think today was one of the best efforts all season. Everybody who played worked extremely hard and we worked together has a team,” he said. “It was good to finally score and again, I feel bad for the guys that they couldn’t get a win today because they deserve to get a win because they try hard and their spirits are fantastic.”Buckeye junior midfielder Ryan Ivancic scored the game-tying goal with less than six minutes left in regulation.Redshirt-junior midfielder Kofi Agyapong sent in a low cross from the left side of the field to Ivancic, who was waiting back post. Ivancic controlled the ball and found the back of the net, sending the game into overtime. It was Ivancic’s second goal of 2013.Ivancic, who now leads the Buckeyes in goals scored, said the team showed a lot of hard work in the game against a tough in-conference opponent.“We possessed the ball a lot better than we have been and we showed a lot of resiliency, and we got a goal, which was big,” Ivancic said. “I think that if we can get a couple more goals in our next game it will really jump start the team.”MSU (7-1-2, 1-0-1) outshot the Buckeyes 5-2. Fortunately for OSU, redshirt-junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov was able to save the only two Spartan shots that were on goal, maintaining the draw.The Spartans scored the first goal of the match in the 64th minute when junior forward Adam Montague headed the ball past Ivanov to give MSU a 1-0 lead. Montague fired nine shots in the match and the goal was his fourth of the season.Ivanov, who recorded eight saves in the match, said that getting a point out of a game like this is big as the team heads into the later part of their schedule.“(The goal) was good for motivation for the team to try and get more goals,” he said. “It’s good for our confidence and shows we can play against anyone left on our schedule, so hopefully we can continue playing like this and get some wins in our upcoming games.”OSU will be back in Columbus when it plays No. 14 Northwestern Oct. 20. The match will be played in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium and is scheduled to take place at 2 p.m.
A fox terrorised a village by attacking a schoolgirl and delivery driver before chewing off part of a man’s ear.The “aggressive” animal has been named John Lewis after going on a two-day rampage near Waitrose, the store’s supermarket partner, in the village of Storrington, West Sussex.Residents have told how the fox targeted people including a young girl, supermarket delivery driver, shoppers and several walkers. The victim with damage to his ear didn’t wish to be identified after attacked by a fox in Storrington, SussexCredit:David McHugh / Brighton Pictures The animal then attacked a 24-year-old man as he lay sleeping on a park bench close to the village pond, almost entirely severing his ear.The fox, which is thought to be suffering from toxoplasmosis, a parasitic disease, is now undergoing health checks after being caught.The National Fox Welfare Society has named the animal John Lewis as the attacks happened near a branch of Waitrose, the partner supermarket of the department store.The incidents happened last week when residents spotted the fox wandering the streets of Storrington.The mother of the man bitten by the animal said her son had fallen asleep on the bench after he had been drinking. They tried to get the fox off him and the fox went for them. The fox had eaten most of his earmother of one of the fox’s victims The woman, who asked not to be named, said: “A couple of young lads heard my son screaming and saw the fox attacking him. They tried to get the fox off him and the fox went for them. The fox had eaten most of his ear.”The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment on his ear.But his mother said that the fox might have actually saved her son’s life because he had fallen asleep in sub-zero temperatures.Villagers had reported sightings of the animal around the supermarket, the library and the village memorial pond.Police, the RSPCA and Storrington and Sullington Parish Council were alerted after more reports were made of the fox attacking people in the village.The parish council called on the National Fox Welfare Society for help in tracking down the animal. And after a two-night hunt by volunteers, the animal was cornered and meekly climbed into a cage.”The fox just kept going for people all over the place,” said the woman who helped to finally catch the animal. “Eventually, he just walked into the cage and curled up. It was completely disorientated.”She said she thought the animal might be suffering from toxoplasmosis.”It couldn’t hunt for itself,” she said. “It wasn’t chasing people to attack, it was just desperate for food.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Dear Soy Family,I hope this letter finds you after, or as you work through, a safe and successful harvest. I know it’s easy to get caught up in the politics of farming and to focus on how the trade outlook will affect decisions for next year, but harvest season always reminds me why I choose to be a farmer. And why I’m proud to be President of the American Soybean Association.This harvest season has a lot of farmers wondering where their beans are going to go, and at what price. The entire soy family, from ASA to USB to USSEC, has been thinking about that too. Trade concerns remain top of mind. In fact, last month I traveled to China to attend the JCI conference where I provided an update on the U.S. soybean supply. What I found perhaps most interesting was that, out of 300 people attending, I was the only one providing a producer voice, though I certainly wasn’t the only one who had a keen eye on trade and how to resolve the tariff war between the U.S. and China.I know many of you are also traveling on behalf of soybeans, and to each of you, thank you for taking time away from the farm to promote U.S. soybeans and work to build new market opportunities.Looking ahead, we are still pushing for a new farm bill by December, so we don’t default to another extension. ASA will continue to work with you to urge House and Senate members to finish their negotiations so we at least have the certainty of a new five-year bill.Thank you for your hard work supporting and promoting our industry.John HeisdorfferPresident, American Soybean Association
SEE ALSO: Who Cares How Much GQ’s iPhone App Made? Condé Nast has released download figures for its GQ reader app, first introduced with the December issue in mid November. That issue was downloaded 6,641 times and so far has doubled with the January issue at over 12,000 downloads to date.There are plenty magazine apps out there, but they tend to be functional offshoots or slices of content. GQ’s was notable because it was the full issue and counted toward ABC audited circulation. The app debuted at $2.99 and remained fixed for the January issue, but the publisher said it will offer future issues for $1.99 to returning customers. These aren’t huge numbers for the 930,000-circ title, but the trajectory is going in the right direction. And it’s an interesting first step in determining reader interaction and interest in reading full issues on a smartphone. The company said engagement metrics were in line with MRI numbers for the print magazine.For example, a spokesperson said MRI estimates readers spend 71 minutes with the print magazine, users of the December app spent an average of 83 minutes.Demographics, said the spokesperson, generally overlap between app and print, with app readers trending younger. The company doesn’t yet know, however, how many of the app readers have also bought the magazine through other channels. “This will be a focus of further study,” she said. Magazine issues can be viewed in vertical and horizontal modes. While in vertical mode, users can tap their way through the navigation scheme and pinch and swipe their way through stories and images. In horizontal or landscape mode, readers can swipe page by page, including ads, through the entire issue.“We have seen the door opened to a different pool of readers through these new distribution channels,” said Robert Sauerberg, group president, Condé Nast Consumer Marketing, in a statement. “The digital editions of our brands are on track to provide print-like engagement and we will use our continued learning to create the best business model for future introductions.” Subscription offers are being considered, said the company—the spokesperson declined to offer any further specifics on strategies.
Oil Search Alaska LLC President Keiran Wulff at the company’s Anchorage office. (Photo by Elizabeth Harball/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Before getting in to who’s drilling there and why, let’s make one thing clear about this oil field: the state of Alaska thinks it’s a very big deal.Listen now“Literally, if you line up the big fields up on the North Slope, this probably ranks third behind Prudhoe Bay and Kuparuk,” Alaska Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Andy Mack said.Prudhoe Bay and Kuparuk, of course, are the giant oil fields responsible for making Alaska the oil state it is today. And on a chunk of state and native owned land west of Prudhoe Bay called the Pikka Unit, one company thinks there might be over a billion barrels of recoverable oil. Mack said the oil in this area alone could reverse the long-term decline in the amount of oil flowing down the trans-Alaska pipeline.“If all goes well, it could lead to not only flattened production, but also increased production,” Mack said.So last fall, when a company a lot of Alaskans hadn’t heard of moved to take over developing this oil field, it got people’s attention.Oil Search is a company based in Papua New Guinea, a country just south of the equator and just north of Australia, where it also has offices. An oil project in the Arctic may seem like an odd leap for a company from an island nation in the South Pacific. But in a recent interview, the newly-minted president of Oil Search Alaska, Keiran Wulff, said the company is serious about its new venture.“We see Alaska as a place of enormous opportunity,” Wulff said.Wulff said its first planed development in Alaska could represent a significant investment for Oil Search — in the range of $4 billion to $6 billion. The company bought a significant stake in the project last year from its main partner, Denver-based Armstrong Oil and Gas, with an option to take over the rest of Armstrong’s stake if all goes well. (The Spanish oil company Repsol continues to own a significant percentage.)Last week, Oil Search officially took over as operator of the field. That means when it comes to actually getting an oil development off the ground, Oil Search is in the drivers seat.Sitting in the conference room of the company’s new offices in downtown Anchorage, which it now shares with Armstrong, Wulff makes it clear Oil Search is gearing up for what could be something big.“We’ve just taken the whole floor here — we’re actually expanding so that we can fit over 120 people on this floor, and the majority of them will be Alaskans,” Wulff said.So why did Oil Search come to Alaska? The company operates all the producing oil fields in Papua New Guinea. But the bulk of what it’s invested in there is gas — it’s a partner in a major LNG project there — so the company decided it needed to balance its portfolio. True to its name, Wulff said Oil Search came to Alaska searching for more oil.“Gas projects — as the state’s finding out right now — often take many years to come to fruition, whereas oil projects are a lot quicker to market, so it’s very important for any company to have a balance between oil and gas,” Wulff said.It might not seem like Papua New Guinea and Alaska have much in common. But Wulff said his company sees a lot of similarities.“Papua New Guinea is one of the most challenging places to work on the planet. It’s very remote, very mountainous, there are no roads, there is no infrastructure to speak of. And everything has to be brought in on helicopters and such,” Wulff explained.Beyond logistics, Wulff said Oil Search has experience negotiating with local communities living near where the company wants to drill. Wulff thinks in some ways, communities in Papua New Guinea and communities on the North Slope have similar values.“[They are] very passionate about their environment, very passionate about their way of life. And so an important part there — and a strong analogy between Papua New Guinea and Alaska — is the commitment and passion of the local community to their areas, and that’s something you’ve got to respect and be very cognizant of,” Wulff said.Wulff said Oil Search’s discussions with Nuiqsut — the community closest to the company’s first planned development — are still in their infancy. Kuukpik, the village corporation for Nuiqsut, has spoken in favor of the development, but records from public meetings show that some in the community have concerns about the project’s potential impacts.“We’ve been doing a lot of listening,” Wulff said.And that’s not the only remaining issue. Oil Search wants to drill a few more appraisal wells to get a better idea of how much oil it’s actually sitting on.“Look, I think it’s still a long way to go before people understand how big this field is,” Wulff said. “Our company is quite a conservative company. We don’t over-promote and we don’t over-promise. Our style is much more to under-promise and over-deliver.”Depending on whether and how all the details come together, it’s possible that by 2023, a Papua New Guinea company could begin producing from one of the biggest oil developments in Alaska’s history.

The Transition is not as fast as traditional small aircraft and does not have as great a range or cargo capacity (Transition can carry just 195 kg (430 lb), including passengers and fuel), but the less stringent requirements for flying light sport aircraft may make it attractive to people who would not normally consider training for a full pilot’s license. Training for a light sport aircraft license in the US requires only 20 logged hours in the air.The retail price of the Transition is expected to be $194,000 and Terrafugia expects the vehicle to be available by the end of 2011. The company has already received 70 orders. (PhysOrg.com) — The Federal Aviation Administration in the US has given approval to the Transition, a two-seater flying car developed over the last four years by Massachusetts Company, Terrafugia. Flying car takes wing: MIT alums’ invention makes its first test flights (w/Video) On the road, with its wings folded, the Transition is driven by a conventional front-wheel drive, and can fit in a regular sized garage. When it is ready to take to the air via an airport, airstrip, or suitable flat land, the wings are folded out and the rear-facing propeller engaged to enable the vehicle to take off. It needs a runway of just over 500 meters (one third of a mile).Federal approval of the vehicle was delayed because its weight of 600 kg (1,430 lb) was over the limit for a light sport aircraft (LSA), but the Transition has now been granted a special exemption to allow it to fly legally. The additional 50 kg in weight allows the vehicle to include safety equipment needed to meet federal motor vehicle standards in addition to aviation standards. The vehicle has better crash survivability than a normal light sport aircraft because of the safety features such as the safety cage and crush zones required for driving on the roads, but it is also safer because if the weather turns bad the plane can land and drive home instead of flying through unsafe conditions. Citation: Flying car should be available next year (w/ Video) (2010, June 30) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-06-car-year-video.html The flying car, or “roadable aircraft” as the company calls it, was designed by a team of engineers trained at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It can drive like a car at normal highway speeds but can also unfold its wings and fly.The vehicle runs on normal unleaded gasoline and has a cruising speed in the air of around 185 kph (115 mph). Its flying range is 740 kilometers (460 miles). When driven like a car with its wings folded the fuel consumption is around 7.85 liters per 100 km (30 mpg). The use of normal fuel instead of a reliance on aviation fuel will make the Transition the most environmentally friendly plane in the air. The vehicle will have features of regular road vehicles, such as crumple zones and airbags. © 2010 PhysOrg.com More information: www.terrafugia.com/aircraft.html Explore further

the Pakistan Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code The detailed order of the tribunal released on Tuesday confirmed that the three-member bench found Latif guilty off all six charges brought against him by the PCB in the spot-fixing case during the Pakistan Super League in Dubai in February The tribunal headed by a former judge of the Lahore High Court has already banned Test opener Sharjeel Khan for five years with half of the sentence suspended on spot-fixing charges PCB’s legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi said the detailed order on Latif showed that the tribunal found him guilty of meeting with a bookmaker Yousuf on 8th and 9th of February and agreeing to spot-fixing in a match “It is irrelevant whether Khalid played a match or not The full order finds him guilty of breaching the code of conduct” Latif has also been found guilty of trying to instigate teammates to spot-fix and convincing Sharjeel to meet with the bookmaker in Dubai Latif and his lawyer now have 14 days to file an appeal against the ban and fine Sharjeel has already appealed against his ban and the PCB has appointed a former judge of the Supreme court to hear his petition from Wednesday in Lahore “Sharjeel has already filed his appeal while the PCB has also appealed with the independent adjudicator” Rizvi said He said the PCB had appealed since Sharjeel was found guilty on all six counts of violating the

Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsPublished: February 16 2014 3:00 am We pride ourselves about India’s ‘unity in diversity’ but in the face of regional discrimination in everyday life everything becomes hogwash (Photo: AP) Related News Death resulting from racism is even more painfully shameful in a heterogeneous country like India We can only empathise with Nido Taniam’s parents We pride ourselves about India’s ‘unity in diversity’ and in being the world’s most spiritual society but in the face of regional discrimination in everyday life everything becomes hogwash A colleague of mine who visited Kolkata on research work told me recently that after a wonderful dinner at a Park Street restaurant she spoke appreciatively to the restaurant manager when he approached her The manager was very happy and asked where she had come from She replied “Bangalore” The next words he whispered shocked her “Kolkata could be better if there were no indecent Biharis spoiling the city” The irony of the whole situation was that she was from Bihar Having grown up as a Bengali in West Bengal I can vouch for such culturally racist sentiments Marwaris are offensively referred to as Mero Biharis as Khotta Oriyas as Ure and all South Indians as Madrassis When I look at other states similar codifications apply North-Easterners are Chinkis; Kerelites are Kurkurias; in Karnataka the derogatory words for Tamilians are Konga or Pandi; Tamilians call Andhraites Kolty and Kannadigas Kalli and all North Indians as Setu Whereas the word bhaiyya is respectful in North India for states south of the Vindhyas it’s a belittling reference to North Indians From retail distributors in Pune I’ve heard gripes about the alleged parochial arm-twisting in Maharashtra that has frightened away Biharis — the very people who are their low-cost labour base It seems workers from Bihar are very sincere hardworking and dedicated They’d come without families and distributors gave them room and board next to the godown where several of them stayed together They were willing to work day and night whenever required Local distributors unhappily said that Maharashtra is not allowing outsiders to come because of high local unemployment They also say that as locals have to return to their families at night distributors don’t have the all-time loading-unloading facility any longer Whatever may be the business implication for the distributors the situation amounts to preventing those who belong to Bihar from excersing their fundamental right to work anywhere in India At the same time it is exploitation of labour and social discrimination that leads to fostering hatred among fellow Indians When you look at India’s heterogeneous perspective there are many areas that can potentially divide us Take arranged marriages as the indicator of what is acceptable First comes religion then caste language and then state of origin It’s very clear that no family will arrange a marriage between two people who speak different languages The exception I’ve noticed is among Rajputs where the ruler stratum is the most important factor Whether the bride or groom comes from Rajasthan Nepal Bengal Gujarat Karnataka or Manipur does not matter so long as the social lineage is from the ruling family (although in independent India nobody has any ruling powers anymore) Other areas critical in arranged marriages are matching the family status in terms of economic power and what the boy — and nowadays the girl as well — earns Matching the education level matters as that anticipates the earning capacity and long-term compatibility of the couple A most denigrating factor is checking the colour of skin which purportedly determines beauty All marriage advertisements look for a fair person while a dark-skinned person describes himself/herself as wheatish complexioned Interstate cross-communal marriages between persons speaking different languages or having different religious beliefs can happen only within the bounds of a love marriage So aside from race religion caste or language we subscribe to divisions of rich and poor literacy-illiteracy lower to higher education jobs being a native from a north west south eastern state social standing from being a member of a family who is in politics industry business trade armed forces education working in a corporate having a government job or being professionals like doctors lawyers or tailors and carpenters So many ingredients are available in our country to express our racism The race problem is not limited to India alone In spite of being part of the European Union different countries in Europe rarely identify one another as Europeans All may have the same skin colour but each nation has its own language Hence there is no unity Significantly a historical residue can create such strong hatred that at one point a whole race was about to be obliterated During the 12th century — when the Pope declared that Catholics were prohibited from lending money — people turned to the Jews for their economic requirements The cumulative result was institutionalised hatred against the Jews Nazi Hitler’s “Final Solution” strategy to exterminate Jews expressed blatant racism propagated by the state Racism can be expressed even in difficult economic situations After World War II the French were very negative in their dealings with the Italians and Spaniards After six decades the situation has almost been repaired though if somebody is doing something the wrong way you can still hear comments like “Why are you working stupidly like a Portugese” A controversial survey from three decades ago which spanned 80 countries which was mapped by The Washington Post put India at No 2 position after Jordan among the world’s most racist countries The accuracy of this survey has been questioned As addressing African origin people as Black or Negro is taboo in the US (you have to call them African-Americans) would any American openly express bias TV debaters vehemently argue for and against Indians being racists It’s a pity that our education system is so archaic that children are still not taught to appreciate the diversity of our different states languages religions food habits and cultures in a positive way Unless that happens the extreme discrimination that killed Nido will always exist

2008 (AP Photo/Indian Space Research Organization HO)” Top News INDIA’S MAIDEN moon mission spacecraft Chandrayaan-1 has been found in deep space by a powerful earth-based interplanetary radar deployed by researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory over seven years after all communication with the spacecraft was lost According to scientists associated with Chandrayaan-1 the finding reveals the development of radar technologies that can even protect the earth from being struck by objects like asteroids Chandrayaan-1 which was launched on October 22 2008 by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) got lost in space on August 29 2009 after the power system on the spacecraft failed ending all communication between ground station and the spacecraft The spacecraft has now been found orbiting the moon by a powerful microwave interplanetary radar “We have been able to detect NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) and the Indian Space Research Organisation’s Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft in lunar orbit with ground-based radar” Marina Brozovic from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in statement on Friday “Finding the LRO was relatively easy as we were working with the mission’s navigators and had precise orbit data about where it was located Finding India’s Chandrayaan-1 required a bit more detective work because the last contact with the spacecraft was in August of 2009” the radar scientist said The interplanetary radar has found that Chandrayaan-1 is still circling some 200 km above the lunar surface “There is practically no atmosphere around the moon to cause any drag on the spacecraft or cause its decay Since it is in a vacuum it can fly in the same orbit for a very long time — up to 40 years We lost contact after the power system failed but the spacecraft continues in its orbit” said former ISRO chairman G Madhavan Nair who was involved with Chandrayaan-1 “It is the laws of physics The spacecraft will continue to go around the moon for a long time” said another former ISRO chairman K Radhakrishnan According to Nair the finding of the spacecraft in deep space by an Earth-based telescope deployed by NASA shows that “radar technologies have really advanced” Earlier radars could only detect a small object if it was around 500 km from the earth but NASA which keeps a log of all space objects has managed to peer deep into space he said “If there is an asteroid hurtling towards the Earth only a powerful microwave radar like the interplanetary radar used to spot Chandrayaan-1 can catch it early and help prepare for its arrival” Nair said In finding Chandrayaan-1 in deep space NASA’s interplanetary radar scientists have virtually spotted a 15 metre-sized cube travelling nearly 386000 km from the earth In other words it is the equivalent of spotting a small car travelling 386000 km away in deep space During its 315-day mission life in 2008-09 ISRO’s Chandrayaan-1 reported finding water on the surface of the moon The finding was made by the NASA-supported moon mineralogy mapper (M3) which was one of the 11 instruments on the spacecraft Data from M3 was analysed by scientists from the Brown

process that requires steady hands It took quite a few attempts to get the focus locked in but the results are quite something when it does work out The kind of details we got are impossible to achieve with any other smartphone camera Motorola also announced a new Hasselblad branding Mod where the focus is on the camera The 10x optical zoom ability to shoot RAW images are the highlights of this Mod While the Hassleblad Mod appears like a great addition it is an expensive one; costs $299 which is nearly Rs 20000 for a camera module At that price many users in India might buy a whole new smartphone but for now it looks the Moto Z with their mods are targetted at a niche audience one that okay attaching extra modules to their phone for some new functionality Also Read:IFA 2016: Lenovo

by Tashi Tobgyal) Related News It is 410 am and two men dressed in crisp white coats tall pleated hats and aprons are hard at work — vigorously kneading dough peeling potatoes whisking pancake batter and separating egg whites with deft precision Undeterred by the sweltering heat inside the small kitchen the pair is racing against time It’s less than three hours to breakfast service The two men are chefs at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace — a five-star Taj heritage hotel that bagged the ‘The Best Hotel in the World’ honour at TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards 2016 in January this year Perched on top of Chittar Hill — the highest point in Jodhpur — the palace was built by Maharaja Umaid Singh to provide employment to his people during the famine of the 1920s It was completed in 1943 For anywhere between Rs 60000 and Rs 8 lakhs a night the 200-member staff at Umaid Bhawan ensures that you “live like a king” But what does it take to transform the world’s second largest private residence to a lavish world-class hotel Behind the tranquil environs and lavender-diffused air an invisible army runs the show at this palace hotel Watch a behind-the-scenes video on Umaid Bhawan here 5am – Breakfast at Pillars At 520am 56-year-old Mod Singh takes charge at the Indian counter in the kitchen His breakfast specialties — traditional Jodhpuri mirchi vadas savoury spicy stuffed parathas and fried-to-perfection hot golden puris A member of the royal kitchen in the ’70s Singh became a part of the hotel staff when the erstwhile Maharaja Gaj Singh decided to convert the palace into a hotel in 1978 The Rathore dynasty of Jodhpur continues to stay in one wing of the palace “For us maintaining the heritage and legacy of the palace was of utmost importance” says Gaj Singh Later two chefs each take their positions at the continental counter and in the pantry The pastry chef has arrived too “There are about 180 dishes that are served for breakfast at the Pillars restaurant We have to make everything in small batches Apart from the basic prep most of the cooking happens in the final two hours” says Sujoy Gupta the executive chef at the hotel now busy checking on the home-made apple jam It’s 6am an hour to breakfast service It’s time for the pantry team to get the buffet in place Large trays of cold cuts over 60 small glasses of flavoured yoghurt a range of fresh fruits and breads begin leaving the kitchen The croissants are in high demand at Pilllars but baking the scrumptious bread is a challenge “They need to be steamed for two minutes and then baked for precisely nine minutes at 180° C Not a split-second more will do” says Rahul M the pastry chef A little after 7am as the first batch of guests begin to arrive the kitchen staff inside gets frantic A guest has ordered a sunny-side up omelette with truffles and the chef at the egg station looks a bit worried “The yolk needs to be velvety and run out with a single prick of the fork It needs a cooking time of exact three minutes” he says breaking an egg on to the pan “But it is the delivery time — from the kitchen counter to the guest’s table — that some times overcooks the egg” he explains “All the produce in the kitchen is grown in our own vegetable gardens and if we can’t get the ingredients here we fly them down from all over the world Truffles rissotto rice pasta salmon…they’re all flown in” says Vincent Ramos the general manager who has been at the hotel for the past three years 730am – The secret life of a housekeeper “Incognito” “Invisible” are some of the words that Renu Madhok executive housekeeper at Umaid Bhawan uses while assigning duties to her 50-member team at the 730am briefing The team — including cleaners room attendants florists gardeners butlers and laundry staff — have all gathered in the “service area” of the hotel to get instructions for the day The temperature upcoming events arrivals and departures of guests any specific requirements feedback — it’s all on the day’s agenda “The real challenge is execution without interruption We aim for invisible service” says Madhok After the briefing the supervisor conducts the “Why-Why Card Analysis” — scrutinising the complaints of the guests and understanding why the staff didn’t get it right It is now 830am and Berishal Singh 50 is in-charge of the presidential Maharani suite — originally made for Umaid Singh’s wife The room is dominated by pink floral furnishing and a large mural of the Goddess Kali etched on shining black glass designed by French-born artist Jean-Pierre Norblin de La Gourdaine in the 1940s Singh begins by dusting the drawing room dining room and the attached kitchenette before moving on the large balcony that overlooks the palace gardens and the Mehrangarh Fort But the most important part of his job is preparing the bathroom — which comes with a bathtub carved out of a single piece of pink Italian marble — designed by Norblin again Making the bed too is an elaborate affair at Umaid Bhawan — with only a few like Singh — assigned the job The mattress the “300-thread-count bed sheet” made of Egyptian cotton the floral duvet and the four fluffy pillows all come from Singapore A final inspection by supervisor Balwant Singh Rathore and the suite is set to be “released” Swaroop Singh Rathore — the most sought-after butler at the hotel — also does a round of the rooms The 56-year-old began his career as an F&B executive before becoming a full-time butler since 1998 “I have served Prince Charles Madonna Mick Jagger Amitabh Bachchan Shah Rukh Khan… My brief is to never say no If the guests want a chopper we will arrange for one” he says Downstairs 12 members of the cleaning staff are polishing the floor pillars the Burmese wood furniture and doors in the central dome — a 153 feet-high double dome structure modelled on the Taj Mahal — designed by architect Henry Vaughan Lanchester The design of the entire palace is a mix of lndo-Saracenic 1 classical revival and Western Art Deco styles Noon – The Rathore Welcome The first guests of the day — a German family — are slated to arrive at 1pm With an hour in hand duty manager Vardhman Singh Rathore is busy putting the final touches to the “Rathore Welcome” As the family of four arrives the guard at the gate checks their name on the list and directs them to the porch The car is accompanied by four horses and a chariot The sound of thumping drums fills the air A girl dressed in the traditional poshak spreads rose petals on the stairs and Bhom Singh Bhati — a guard for the last 21 years — greets them with a warm “Khambagani” Next the family is welcomed with a garland and tika before being taken to the central dome Here three front desk trainees are ready with glasses of champagne ginger litchi juice and aam panna In the central dome a group of Kalbelia dancers sway to the beats of the dhol before the guests head out for a tour of the palace The welcome ritual lasts for 45 minutes 6pm — Sundown at the Baradari Lawns Chander Singh has been maintaining the palace’s bougainvillea lawns for the past 32 years The plants have been sourced from Kolkata and Pune and Singh — along with agronomist Bhagirath Singh — ensures that lawns spread over 26 acres are taken care of “The grass in the lawns is from Kenya and was selected by some English horticulturists in the ’40s Every morning and evening most guests come down to the Pillars restaurant and watch the sunset here” says Bhagirath As the sun begins to set several guests take their seats at the restaurant The
