Hon Dr Rufus Ewing and Border Control and Labour Minister DonHue Gardiner on Wednesday left to attend the Pre-Joint Ministerial Council meeting set in Bermuda. The Office of the Premier provided the presentation by Premier Ewing at the two day session; he spoke of the common challenges and how they can be an impetus for getting what is most needed per nation from the British.“By and large there are number of areas that are common that we can say that as Overseas Territories we can sit with our heads together and solve. Also on the issue of cooperation between countries, best practices between countries, there are some countries that are more advanced and have gone through with some countries that have yet to go through and so that there is a lot that we can learn from Bermuda, a lot that we can learn from Cayman Islands who might have gone through this before and developed systems that we can benefit from so it is about that kind of relationship as sister overseas territories.”During the two-day meeting, the Territories Leaders are also expected to make a unified statement on their approach to Beneficial Ownership, which will be forwarded to the United Kingdom.

InstagramWell, before the headline makes you think that The Kapil Sharma Show has landed in another controversy and there is a fallout between Kapil and Krushna Abhishek, then let us make it clear that all is well between the lead comedians of the show and that Krushna made the above statement in jest.Yes, in the upcoming episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, viewers are set to witness a hilarious banter between Kapil Sharma and Krushna Abhishek. A sneak peek from the episode has been shared by the channel Sony TV, wherein an angry bird comes on stage and has Kapil’s voice-over. Krushna then enters the stage dressed as Sapna and looking at the red angry bird, he jokes that Kapil must have fled as someone has come to meet him from Hollywood and he doesn’t know English. Krushna feels flattered as people from Hollywood have come to meet him due to his popularity. He then tells Archana Puran Singh that ‘Kappu’ would have felt jealous of him had he been here. To this, the angry bird says that there is no reason for Kapil to be jealous of him as his (Krushna) home run because of the ace comedian.Krushna gives it back to him that his home runs due to his talent and not Kapil and to this, the audience break into applause. To this, the angry bird tells Krushna that 80 per cent of his talent is due to Govinda.Just then, Kapil enters the stage and promotes the upcoming Hollywood movie Angry Bird 2, wherein not just Kapil but Archana and Kiku Sharda have also done voice-overs.On the personal front, Kapil and his wife Ginni Chatrath are expecting their first child in December this year. The couple recently returned from their babymoon. The comedian had confirmed the news of Ginni’s pregnancy to Mumbai Mirror only a few weeks ago. He had said, “I just want to take care of my wife and be by her side for now. We are obviously very excited as it’s our first kid but my mother is the most excited. She has been waiting for this moment for years now. We are just praying for Ginni and the baby’s health.”On preparing for welcoming the new member, Kapil shared, “There is no prep because we don’t know if it would be a boy or girl. It’s a happy time for the family and everybody is looking forward to welcoming the new member.” Kapil and Ginni tied the knot in Punjab on December 12, 2018.Angry birds ne banaya #TheKapilSharmaShow mein hassi ka ghosla.

US president Trump gives thumbs up during campaign rally in Cleveland, Ohio. Photo: reutersDonald Trump faced greater restraints on his presidency and intrusive investigations from Democrats who won control of the US House of Representatives and pledged to hold the Republican accountable after a tumultuous two years in the White House.Trump and his fellow Republicans expanded their control of the US Senate in Tuesday’s midterm elections, following a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race and immigration.But they lost their majority in the House, a setback for the president after a campaign that became a referendum on his combative leadership.The split power in Congress combined with Trump’s expansive view of executive power could herald even deeper political polarization and legislative gridlock in Washington.The Democrats will now head House committees that can investigate the president’s tax returns, possible business conflicts of interest and any links between his 2016 election campaign and Russia.There may be some room, however, for Trump and Democrats to work together on issues with bipartisan support such as a package to improve infrastructure or protections against prescription drug price increases.Trump made an unlikely gesture toward Nancy Pelosi, the leader of the House Democrats who he has frequently ridiculed, saying her party should pick her to be House Speaker in the new Congress that convenes in January.”In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats. If they give her a hard time, perhaps we will add some Republican votes. She has earned this great honor,” Trump wrote on Twitter.Earlier on Wednesday, he was less conciliatory, describing the elections results as a “very Big Win” and taking a swipe at the media. Trump was due to hold a news conference at the White House at 11:30 a.m. (1630 GMT).The Democrats fell short of a tidal wave of voter support that would have won them control of both chambers of Congress. But in the 435-member House, the party was headed for a gain of around 30 seats, beyond the 23 they needed to claim their first majority in eight years.A Senate majority would have allowed Democrats to apply even firmer brakes on Trump’s policy agenda and given them the ability to block any future Supreme Court nominees.The House Democrats could force Trump to scale back his legislative ambitions, possibly dooming his promises to fund a border wall with Mexico, pass a second major tax-cut package, or carry out his hardline policies on trade.“Today is more than about Democrats and Republicans, it’s about restoring the Constitution’s checks and balances to the Trump administration,” Pelosi told supporters at victory party.Losing the House will test Trump’s ability to compromise, something he has shown little interest in over the last two years with Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress.He hit back at the prospect of investigations by House Democrats, saying on Twitter that Republicans in Senate would counter with their own investigations of Democrats.GRIDLOCK?US stocks opened higher on Wednesday after the elections, while the dollar dropped on the reduced chances of further US fiscal stimulus.Financial markets often favor Washington gridlock because it preserves the status quo and reduces uncertainty.A Democrat-controlled House will hamper Trump’s pro-business agenda and could lead to uncertainty about his administration, but corporate tax cuts and deregulation measures that have played a large hand in the US stock market’s rally since the 2016 election are likely to remain untouched.”With the Democrats taking over the House we will now have to see what gridlock in Congress means for policy. As for the market impact, a split Congress has historically been bullish for equities and we expect to see the same pattern again,” said Torsten Slok, Chief International Economist of Deutsche Bank.Democrats will use their new majority to reverse what they see as a hands-off approach by Republicans toward Trump’s foreign policy, and push for tougher dealings with Russia, Saudi Arabia and North Korea.Foreign policy has been an area that Trump has approached in a very personal way, sometimes antagonizing allies such as Canada while making what critics see as unduly warm overtures to traditional rivals or foes.Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said Democrats could work with Republicans to produce a long-awaited bill to upgrade the nation’s roads, bridges and airports.”Of course, we want to work in a bipartisan fashion. I think we can get an infrastructure bill,” he said.Trump had hardened his rhetoric in recent weeks on issues that appealed to his conservative core supporters. He threw himself into the campaign, issuing warnings about a caravan of Latin American migrants headed through Mexico to the US border and condemnations of liberal American “mobs” he says oppose him.DEMOCRATIC PROBESEvery seat in the House was up for grabs on Tuesday and opinion polls had pointed to the Democratic gains. The party with the presidency often loses House seats in midterm elections.The Republicans had an advantage in Senate races because elections were held for only 35 seats in the 100-member chamber and many of them were in states that often lean Republican.Republicans built on their slim Senate majority by several seats and ousted four incumbent Democrats: Bill Nelson in Florida, Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Claire McCaskill in Missouri.Those gains are sure to bolster Republicans’ efforts to get conservative federal judges through confirmation proceedings. In the 36 gubernatorial contests, Democrats won in several states that supported Trump in 2016 but lost high-profile races in Florida and Ohio.Democrats could infuriate Trump by launching another congressional investigation into allegations of Russian interference on his behalf in the 2016 election. A federal probe by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russia’s role in that election is ongoing.Moscow denies meddling and Trump, calling the Mueller probe a witchhunt, denies any collusion.A House majority would be enough to impeach Trump if evidence surfaced of collusion by his campaign, or of obstruction by the president of the federal investigation. But Congress could not remove him from office without a conviction by a two-thirds majority in the Republican-controlled Senate, an unlikely scenario.Most Democratic candidates in tight races stayed away from harsh criticism of Trump during the midterm campaign’s final stretch, focusing instead on bread-and-butter issues like maintaining insurance protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions, and safeguarding the Social Security retirement and Medicare healthcare programs for senior citizens.WOMEN, YOUNG, HISPANIC VOTERS FUEL GAINSThe Democratic gains were fueled by women, young and Hispanic voters, a Reuters/Ipsos Election Day poll found. Fifty-five percent of women said they backed a Democrat for the House this year, compared to 49 percent in the 2014 midterm congressional election.A record number of women ran for office this election, many of them Democrats. There were 237 women on ballots for House seats and at least 95 had won their races as of early Wednesday morning, shattering the previous record of 84 women in the House, according to the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University.The party picked up seats across the map but some of the campaign’s biggest Democratic stars lost.Liberal Beto O’Rourke’s underdog Senate campaign fell short in conservative Texas against Republican Ted Cruz. Andrew Gillum lost to Republican Ron DeSantis in his quest to become Florida’s first black governor.In Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams was seeking to become the first black woman to be elected governor of a US state. Her opponent, Brian Kemp, was ahead in a very close race early on Wednesday and Abrams said she would not concede until all the votes were counted.

It is overwhelmingly geared toward individual users with more than one Apple device. The problem is that the same service used to sync music and television shows is also used to share calendars and documents between devices. Differentiating professional data, contacts, calendars and documents from personal ones, while possible, can require more time and effort than some entrepreneurs are willing to put in. Related: Steve Jobs: Victim of His Own Dogged Determination? 2. Collaboration is limited or doesn’t work.Apple’s iCloud is device-dependent. Group-sharing options — for instance, syncing calendars among co-workers — are limited, and when they are present they’re restricted to other iCloud users. Not only does this require your colleagues to own an Apple device, they also must be using a compatible operating system and have an iCloud account set up.The iCloud also lacks document sharing capability. For limited document storage — say you need to access a document on the road from your iPhone — it can work, but the document has to be stored in your personal iCloud. Again, the iCloud is a solo experience.Related: How Apple’s Siri Could Destroy Local SEO 3. Other business sharing solutions do it better.To some, it might seem as though Apple is trying to reinvent the wheel when it comes to business file sharing. Other team-based document sharing solutions such as San Mateo, Calif.-based Sugar Sync or Google Apps can usually be easier to set up and more flexible.The mobile version of Google Apps — which can be accessed on an iPhone, iPad or even an iPod Touch — is fast, stable, device-agnostic and allows for first-rate team access. All it takes is to bookmark your Google Apps account homepage in your iPhone or click on the Apps button in the Google iPhone app to create a superior solution to the iCloud.Given its limited scope and that there are so many other ways to access files from the Web, why bother with iCloud? Our bet is that most businesses won’t.Related: Why Entrepreneurs Love Steve Jobs Have you tried or do you use Apple’s iCloud? Tell us about your experience in the comments section below.

Google showed off the projects, which involve weaving electronics into fabrics and a gesture-based interface, at its Google I/O developer event being San Francisco Friday.The result of the combined projects is a fabric that acts as a touch screen of sorts. Different ways of stroking the fabric allow could someday allow a user to turn on lights, make a phone call or do any number of tasks programmed for that patch of fabric. Levi Strauss & Co. has signed a partnership with Google to try to exploit the technology. Project Jacquard is a combination of two technologies—weaving conductive threads into a piece of cloth and creating a package of electronics that work with the conductive threads to read the information they convey and turn it into something a computer can understand. For those who like to win on trivia nights, Jacquard is likely named after the first mechanical loom that was able to make complicated fabrics such as brocades.Google is not the first to create conductive threads. Startups such as OmSignal, Heapslyon and others currently sell shirts, running socks and even sports bras that contain such threads and use their electronic innards to track various metrics associated with physical activity. The Sensoria socks from Heapsylon are surprisingly comfortable.But with Project Soli, Google is adding a futuristic tweak. Soli uses radar to “see” tiny gestures that a person might make with their fingers and turns that into a signal a computer can understand. So a flick of the thumb over the fabric could become a screen swipe. Using radar or other forms of radio waves for gesture control isn’t actually all that new. Elliptic Labs, a Norwegian startup has been licensing its ultrasound technology to smart phone manufacturers so people could control their handsets with a flick of their wrist from across the room. Researchers at the University of Washington have used disruptions in Wi-Fi radio signals as a way to build a gesture-based interface for the home.So Google’s breakthrough with these two projects is to choose radar for Project Soli, and apply it to fabrics to turn anything from your jacket lapel to your sofa cushions into a responsive screen of sorts. This is good news for people who are tired of looking at screens, or are frustrated by trying to perform complex tasks on something the size of a smart watch. But it’s probably bad news for people who like to wipe their hands dry on their pants.
Yesterday, Reddit raised $300 million in new Series D funding from investors led by China’s Tencent. The company now values at $3 billion, in the lines of tech giants like Google and Facebook. Until now, Reddit has received $550 million in total funding. Other investors include Sequoia, Fidelity, Andreessen Horowitz, Quiet Capital, VY and Snoop Dogg. Reddit CEO Steve Huffman, in an interview with CNBC said, “One of the things that’s been very important to us is that we can now assure advertisers that you are going to have a positive experience on Reddit and potentially even a new experience, a new way of connecting with customers.” The investment makes sense because video game is one of the more popular categories at Reddit, and Tencent invests a lot in video game makers. Currently, Tencent owns 40 percent of “Fortnite” creator Epic Games. “They are investors in lots of video games companies,” Huffman said. “And video games are one category that’s really popular on Reddit.” With this investment round, Huffman said he hopes to compete in online advertising with Facebook and Google. “When we are talking about competing for ad dollars, of course, we are talking about Facebook and Google, who take up the vast majority of ad spend.” Not all is good however, as some Redditors are already protesting the funding by Tencent, considering it is Chinese, and Reddit is blocked in China, for allowing users to have a free, unedited speech. People are also speculating how China might have a chance to take over the US in the cold war. A comment on Hacker news reads, “Tencent, a Chinese firm has meaningful ownership of American youth. 12% Snap 7.5% Spotify 40% Epic Games 100% Riot Games 100% Supercell 5% Reddit. Hollywood has also been moving in this direction, with a lot of Chinese investment in the studios, and blockbusters adding special scenes with Chinese actors and locations. What does it mean for America when it’s no longer the owner or creator of culture? It’s historically one of our largest (and most important) exports. I’m not sure if that claim to fame is a net positive for the world, but the changing of this guard will certainly have a local impact.” Some other users expressed concerns, if this move may slowly start to repress anti-China content on Reddit. “The only issue I can see from ownership is if they start to censor the platform. I doubt they’ll do any overt censoring (eg. “no talking about what happened at Tiananmen Square in 1989), but I wouldn’t be surprised if they do subtle manipulation like silently deemphasizing anti-China content, or emphasizing anti-western content (eg. infighting, failure of western democracy). The latter probably would even be good for the site (in terms of engagement) as outrage drive clicks.”, reads a comment on Hacker News.
