What Muhith plans for the upcoming fiscal year - bdnews24.com

1.         I seek your kind permission to place before this august House the supplementary budget of FY 2016-17 and the proposed budget of FY 2017-18. 2.         First of all, I would like to thank Allah, the most gracious and merciful, for providing me this opportunity to place before the parliament my 11 budget as a Finance Minister. Only due to His boundless blessings could I perform the arduous task of formulating budget at this age. Let me take this opportunity to pay respect to the greatest Bengalee of all times, the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. It would not have been possible for me to place a budget before this august house had he not established this sovereign country. I would like to pay tribute to the four national leaders- Shaheed Syed Nazrul Islam, Shaheed Tajuddin Ahmed, Shaheed Captain M. Mansur Ali and Shaheed AHM Kamruzzaman- the competent aides of Bangabandhu. I recall with reverence the sufferings of our dauntless freedom fighters and the oppressed womenfolk during the war of liberation. I remember with a bleeding heart Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib and other family members of the Father of the Nation and others martyred on Au...

All 2,493 items targeted by China’s tariffs in US trade war — Quartz

China’s latest tariff retaliation, announced today, will hit some $60 billion in US exports, including hundreds of agricultural, mining, and manufactured products, threatening jobs and profits at companies around the United States.  Before the trade war starts in earnest, China bought about 17% of US agricultural exports and was a major market for other goods, from Maine lobster to Boeing aircraft. It has been the largest market for Apple iPhones since 2016. Since the escalation of tariffs, though, China has stopped buying soybeans and lobsters, and Apple warned it would miss its expected Christmas holiday sales figures because of trade tensions. In addition to the 25% tariffs below, Beijing also added 20% tariffs on 1,078 US products, 10% tariffs on 974 US products, and 5% tariffs on 595 US products (all links in Chinese). The list was translated from China’s ministry of finance press release using Google translate, and may be inexact in spots. Quartz also rearranged some items on the list to group them into categories, and they may not be in the order of their “harmonized tariff schedule” codes.  Plastic Pipe Machinery, Plastic Pipe Extruder, Plastic Pipe Extrusion Line ̵...

<!–*/ */ /*–>*/ Shares of electric-car maker Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) have been roaring higher recently. The stock has doubled in the last six months as investors cheer the company’s rising Model 3 sales and the completion of a new factory in under a year’s time. Following the company’s better-than-expected fourth-quarter deliveries and the beginning of Shanghai-made Model 3 deliveries to customers in China, one analyst is betting the automaker’s stock can keep moving higher over the next 12 months. Argus Research analyst Bill Selesky boosted his price target from $396 to $556 on Tuesday, citing Tesla’s record 112,000 deliveries in Q4, an improved outlook for “economies of scale in 2020 production and delivery results,” and notable momentum at the company’s new factory in China. Growth in Tesla’s energy business will help, too, Selesky believes. The analyst now expects Tesla’s earnings per share this year to come in at $5.96, up from a previous estimate of $4.40. The company has definitely seen a big increase in production and deliveries — enough to likely lead to significantly improved economies of ...

Key to the success of laser brazing technology, besides a stability that is similar to a

Key to the success of laser brazing technology, besides a stability that is similar to a weld, is mainly with the high aesthetic quality of the joints. Diode laser brazing is a well-established method for joining galvanized steel sheets in series production of automotive bodies. Brazing optics, developed specifically for this application, are moved along the joint by means of robots. The laser beam is transported by a fiber to the optics, and copper silicon wire (CuSi3) is melted within the brazing process. Key to the success of laser brazing technology, besides a stability that is similar to a weld, is mainly with the high aesthetic quality of the joints. Laser-generated brazing seams are known for their smooth, clean surfaces and junctions to the joining parts. This is visually appealing and it almost completely spares post-processing, allowing immediate painting after cleaning possible. Laser-based brazing enables such a unique impression of the joint that, unlike conventional joining techniques, cover parts and their storage and assembly can be saved. However, laser brazing technology has not been able to meet—at least partially—the expectations placed on it. Automobile manu...

Smalkākajos restorānos darbinieku oficiālās algas ne tuvu nav elitāras / Raksts / LSM.lv

Gardēžu iecienītākie, smalkie un diezgan dārgie Latvijas restorāni par klientu trūkumu sūdzēties nevar. Bet par darbiniekiem nomaksātie sociālie nodokļi savukārt liecina, ka vidējās algas daudzviet ir minimālās un pat mazākas, noskaidrojis LTV raidījums “Aizliegtais paņēmiens”. Šī gada sākumā publicētajā Latvijas elites restorānu topā jau trīs gadus pēc kārtas pirmo vietu ieņem “Vincents”, otro – “Bibliotēka Nr.1” Vērmanes dārzā, bet trešo pērn – “Restorāns 3” Vecrīgā. Kopā šajā topā iekļautas 30 vietas. Visas smalkas, salīdzinoši dārgas, bet tajā pašā laikā arī pieprasītas.   Pārbaudot sociālo iemaksu apmēru un darbinieku skaitu un aplēšot vidējās sociālās iemaksas par darbinieku mēnesī, izrādījās, ka vidējais atalgojuma līmenis lielā daļā Latvijas elitārāko restorānu ir zem 500 eiro mēnesī uz papīra, bet, piemēram, restorānā “Riviera” pat nesasniedz minimālās algas līmeni. Restorāns “Vincents” arī pēc vidējo sociālo iemaksu apmērā uz vienu darbinieku ir topa augšgalā, tiesa, otrajā vietā. “Bibliotēka Nr.1”, kas ir otrajā vietā gardēžu topā, sociālo iemaksu topā ir tikai desmitajā vietā, bet “Restorāns 3” ir pēdējā vietā.   126 eiro ir minimālā sociālā iemaksa par vienu darbini...

What should you be looking for in a good shower gel?

What if we told you that the morning shower time can be more than just a wash-and-go activity, and can be transformed into a rejuvenating experience. Choosing the right shower gel can set the tone for the your skin feels and mood transforms. Using a shower gel is like an instant spa as the foam makes skin smooth and its fragrance lingers on, adding to that feel-good element. Function-wise both soap and shower gel are bathing products, Dr Pankaj Chaturvedi consultant dermatologist at Medlinks points out the differences. “Shower gels consist of the same basic ingredients as the soap – water, betaines, and SLS but the main difference lies in their surfactant’s compounds (known to lower the surface tension between substances), which helps in washing away of oily dirt. The surfactants of shower gels do not come from saponification, but by reacting a type of oil or fat with lye. The surfactants of shower gels are formed using, synthetic detergent or surfactants derived from either plant-based source. This gives the product a lower pH value than soap and might also feel less drying to the skin.” However, those used to soaps might feel less squeaky clean when using shower gels. You are ...

Meghan Markle’s taken a lot of s**t from the press. Here’s a list

Kayleigh Dray is editor of Stylist.co.uk, where she chases after rogue apostrophes and specialises in films, comic books, feminism and television. On a weekend, you can usually find her drinking copious amounts of tea and playing boardgames with her friends.  It’s been abundantly clear from the start that the tabloids have a problem with the Duchess of Sussex. On 8 January, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released an unprecedented statement confirming their intention to “step back” as senior members of the royal family. “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex explained, in a post shared on their official @SussexRoyal account. “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the royal family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.” The statement went on to outline the couple’s plans to balance their time between the United Kingdom and North America, which they hope “will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he...

Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro Rugged Phone Released in Europe for €499

Samsung has just launched a new phone under the ‘rugged phone’ category called the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro and Finland is the first market to receive this device. The complete specifications of this device, earlier seen in the form of rumors, are now available for real. It may not be long before this tough device is launched in other European countries too. Some reports say this could happen by February. The rugged phones are targeted at specialist groups like trekkers and those who may tend to drop their phones too often. The phones are built to withstand drops from a reasonable height. In this case, the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro has been made with thick polycarbonate chassis. Without a doubt, the phone comes with IP68 certification which means it is resistant to dust and water. For good measure, Samsung has added the MIL-STD-810 ruggedness certification as well. The phone is as thick as 10 mm, higher than the normal 7-8 mm thickness you will notice in smartphones. Its weight too is above normal at 200 grams. The Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro has a 6.3-inch LCD display, with an aspect ratio of 20:9. The screen resolution is full HD+ at 1,080×2,400 pixels. The display has a punch ...

We are surrounded by displays with “millions” of colors and hundreds of pixels per inch. With

We are surrounded by displays with “millions” of colors and hundreds of pixels per inch. With super “high fidelity” sound producing what we perceive to be realistic replicas of the real world. Of course this is not the case, we rarely stop and think how our electronic systems have been crafted around the limitations of human perception. So to explore this issue, in this article we ask the question: “What might an alien think of human technology?”. We will assume a lifeform which senses the world around it much as we do. But has massively improved sensing abilities. In light of these abilities we will dub it the Oculako. Let’s begin with the now mostly defunct CRT display and see what our hypothetical alien thinks of it. The video below shows a TV screen shot at 10,000 frames per second. Our limited visual system detects changes slowly (PDF). Human persistence of vision takes effect at around 15 frames a second. This merges the lines together, creating a single image. The Oculako processes images far faster. And so sees what looks like a line racing down the screen. Such an organism might not even recognize this as a display. Even if the Oculako can work its way around this slow ...
