Jun 1, 2010 - 5:16:38 AM
    
Anushka offered prayers at Kanakadurga Temple in Vijayawada on Tuesday. Her presence at the temple created a flutter with devotees making a ruckus to meet and greet her. Hundreds of her fans thronged the hillock, the entry and exit points from the temple to have a glance at her.
Accompanied by the unit members of Panchakshari, Anushka arrived at the venue two hours behind the schedule at 12.00 noon, despite which the surge of people stayed under the scorching sun. The police had a tough time in controlling the crowds.
Director V. Samudra said that even before the launch of the film, he prayed at the temple keeping script at the feet of the Goddess. He said that the output had been tremendous with thrilling graphics. Later, the temple authorities presented the temple prasadams and portrait of the Goddess to the heroine.

Allari Naresh to test his luck in Tamil
Jun 2, 2010 - 4:17:42 AM
    

Allari Naresh will be seen in a big Tamil film very soon. Though he acted in Tamil earlier (Kurumbu, remake of his maiden Telugu film, Allari), he didn't get success there. Now he will be seen along with Tamil actor Sasikumar (of Subramanyapuram fame) in Samudrakani's next Tamil film. The film would be undertaken as a bilingual in Telugu and Tamil.

Earlier, Samudrakani directed the film Sambho Shiva Sambho, the Telugu remake of Tamil hit Nadodigal. In this Telugu make, Allari Naresh played one of the heroes. Colors Swathi is also playing heroine role.

Air India One transports of heads of state and government

Many know about air force one us president business jumbo jet what about Indian president 
its Air India one

Here’s some news for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. he is got a new office. What is more, he will be going places in it. And he will be better protected in it, have more elbow room, even play host to foreign visitors—all without even being on Indian soil. 



The fact is, the Indian Air Force, in whose craft the top dignitaries of the country fly, is getting a spanking new home in the sky for the Indian Prime Minister. The first of three ultra luxury transport aircraft, the Boeing Business Jets (BBJ), ordered for a whopping Rs 734 crore, will arrive in May to join the VVIP squadron of the IAF that ferries the President, Prime Minister and top Cabinet ministers.


 

While the Indian version of Air Force One is being kept under wraps by IAF due to “security concerns”, the aircraft is known to be fitted with a secure satellite communication centre, an advanced missile warning system and deflecting shield, electronic counter measures and radar warning systems.


This means that when the PM travels on official work, he will be able to conduct meetings, hold press conferences, catch a wink of sleep and remain in constant audio and visual touch with New Delhi without leaving his aircraft. 

“The Boeing Business Jet is a specially configured aircraft for VVIP comfort. Its interiors create a working environment befitting the VVIP’s official stature. More importantly , it is equipped with the latest self-protection suite, thus providing our VIPs the highest level of protection from any ground-based or airborne threat,” the Indian Air Force, tasked with maintaining and operating the VVIP fleet, says.

While the older 737s do not have any self protection systems, the Embraer executive jets are reported to have limited protection against land-launched weapons and heat seeking missiles. The BBJs, on the other hand, have an “extremely efficient” missile protection suite and powerful electronic systems designed to confuse the incoming missile.



The IAF refuses to share details, but the minimum systems on board will be an IR (Infra Red) sensor and jammer to track incoming missiles from a good distance to warn the pilot. This would also activate the counter measures unit that will dispense flares and decoys. Like the American Air Force One, the BBJ is also being fitted with electronic counter measures to jam enemy radars.


The three BBJs have been specifically ordered to replace the Boeing 737-200s that were acquired in the 1980s for the use of the top dignitaries. Unlike the earlier craft with their limited resources, the BBJs have a range of close to 11,000 km and a maximum speed of 890 kmph. So they will be able to fly to most parts of the world without a refuelling stopover.


This will be a massive change from the current lot of aircraft that fly VVIPs in the country. Both the Embraer executive jets and the Boeing 737s in the IAF’s inventory have a limited flying range and need to make numerous fuel stopovers during long flights. In fact, the Boeing 737s cannot even fly abroad due to outdated avionic systems and the lack of modern navigational aids.



Once inside, the PM and his entourage will find a full-fledged flying office-cum-residence that can host up to 48 guests besides having a private bedroom for the VVIP, an executive office with Internet availability and secure communication connections.

The 807 sq ft cabin has been customised with a stateroom and a separate meeting room, something that is inconceivable on the much smaller Embraer 135 Legacy jets that are used to transport VVIPs within the country and for short overseas hauls and the older generation Boeing 737-200s that fly dignitaries on the domestic circuit.




Air India One
President inside Air India One


The president also undertook the maiden flight of the BBJ, christened 'Rajdoot' (the ambassador). The other two jets are called 'Rajhans' (the swan) and 'Rajkamal' (the lotus).
She flew to Lilabari in Assam on way to Arunachal Pradesh in the aircraft, emblazoned with the name of India, a red beacon on top and Indian flag fluttering in the front.
"It will be more business-like with the journeys cut short. I can now give more time to study," Patil said before boarding the aircraft.
The supreme commander of the armed forces boarded the aircraft after a small prayer ritual was conducted. The president was accompanied by an entourage of 20 officials on the four-day tour of Arunachal Pradesh and Assam.
With the flight, Patil formally inducted the jets into the IAF's Air Headquarters Communications Squadron that is based at the Palam Air Force station here.
"We have ushered in the new era for flying our national leaders. The aircraft in its class is the finest. Its features are SPS (Special Protection Suite), more passenger comfort and lower noise level, which makes it class apart from what we have been flying," IAF chief Air Chief Marshal Fali Homi Major told reporters here.
The IAF has purchased the aircraft from the US at a cost of Rs 9.34 billion (Dh683 million) each and they are equipped with state-of-the-art security gadgets and the latest communication systems.
The name 'Rajdoot' was first initially borne by a Russian TU-124 and then by the Boeing-737 the new jet is replacing.
The BBJ is based on a newer generation Boeing-737.
The aircraft has entered service nine months behind schedule due to last- minute integration problems of the missile defence system and sorting out of end-user verification laws with the US.
"We have sorted this out. No physical verification will be there for the equipments in the aircraft," Major said.
The three aircraft are being extensively flown across the country and are undergoing complete system checks.


Three Business Boeing Jets (BBJ) - all modelled on the US president's office-in-the-sky Air Force One - were Wednesday inducted into the Communication Squadron of the Indian Air Force (IAF) by President Pratibha Patil.
The President also undertook the maiden flight of the BBJ christened Rajdoot. The other two jets are called Rajhans and Rajkamal.
She flew to Lilabari in Assam on way to Arunachal Pradesh in the aircraft emblazoned with the name of India, a red beacon on top and Indian flag fluttering in the front.

"We have sorted this out. No physical verification will be there for the equipments in the aircraft," Major said.
The three aircraft are being extensively flown across the country and are undergoing complete system checks. One aircraft will be dedicated for the president and the prime minister, another will be used to ferry special guests and senior ministers, while one will be on standby.
The aircraft have a spacious VVIP cabin and can carry a total of 46 passengers in four different zones.
The new jets have been configured to the same security specifications as the Boeing-747 that flies the US president. They are equipped with sophisticated electronic countermeasures, a protection suite and chaff dispensers to ward off missile threats, a secure satellite and VHF communication suite and other security gadgets.
Powered by two CFM-56 engines that are jointly manufactured by the US General Electric and the French Snecma, the long-range BBJs are designed to function as command posts in the event of an emergency. The jets are quieter and more fuel-efficient. It can cruise a speed of 41,000 feet at 450 knots.

Bihar's illiterate youth to inspire young minds

Patna: The rollercoaster ride to success of an illiterate Bihar youth, who launched a radio station and promoted social messages on polio, AIDS and other issues but was arrested for illegally running it, has found place in school textbooks.

The story of Raghav, in his mid-20s, and his 'Raghav Radio' has been published by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in its book 'Bharat Mein Samajik Parivartan Evam Vikas' (Social change and development in India) for Class 12.



The book describes Raghav as a role model for development in society. It highlights his struggle and the difficulties he faced after starting 'Raghav Radio' in Mansoorpur village in Vaishali district.

Raghav, who currently works as the project head of a community radio station in Rajasthan's Ajmer district, told IANS over the phone that his 'story in the NCERT book will inspire people, particularly the youths, to make a difference in society'.

The book mentions Raghav as being born in a family of agricultural labourers who were too poor to provide him with education.

It was in 2004 that Raghav, who had an electronics repair shop at Gudri Bazar near Mansoorpur and loved to tinker with old equipment, stumbled upon the innovative idea of launching a radio station.

With the old tools and gadgets that he had stored over the years, he launched his radio station that very soon became a hit with the villagers.

The station operated like a community radio service in Muzaffarpur, Vaishali and Saran districts, providing local news and views in the local dialect.

Apart from Hindi songs and news, it provided information about crime in the area, programmes on AIDS awareness, polio eradication, literacy initiatives and news about missing people as well as on local functions and festivals. And all that free of cost.

The media highlighted his story and he became very popular. The union communications ministry took notice too -- but that was to be his undoing.

In 2006, the ministry sought a report on the legality of the private radio station. Raghav did not possess an operating licence as he was too poor to pay the licence fee and too naive to understand that it was illegal.

'Raghav Radio' closed down. The district authorities said it was closed for violating the Indian Telegraphs Act.

The government held him an offender and arrested him for a brief period but for people residing in and around Mansoorpur village, he was a hero.

Later, many NGOs came forward to help him and gave him vocational training.

Impressed by his talent and struggle, the Barefoot College at Tilonia in Rajasthan, run by Bunker Roy, appointed him the head of Barefoot Community Radio Station, the first of its kind in Rajasthan.

The radio service caters to the educational, development and socio-cultural needs of the local community in a radius of six to 10 kilometres through indigenously created broadcast programming.

From an ordinary illiterate youth to becoming someone who has the ability to inspire people through his simple deeds, Raghav has indeed come a long way. And the mission to inform and educate continues.

Pioneer new technologies: Kalam to Indian Scientists

 Mumbai: The growth that India has achieved so far is based on patents that have been generated outside the country, said Former President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. The time has come that Indian scientists pioneer innovation and technology development, achieve growth on their own patents, instead of others, he added.

Tata Institute of Fundamental Research has "rich heritage" in areas like research, basic sciences and technology research and it can contribute to the growth and prosperity of the country, said Kalam to scientists and students at the Homi Bhabha auditorium.



Kalam emphasized on green energy and told that scientists should focus on moon-based solar power or space power as it is non-polluting. According to him, scientists should work on safe transmission of solar power from outer space to earth for human habitation.

He also pointed out some areas, that scientists can work on, such as increasing solar photovoltaic cell efficiency by using carbon nano tubes, nuclear power generation using thorium based reactor, proteomics research, integrated vaccine development, prevention of HIV/AIDS, forecasting earthquakes, work on adult stem cells, umbilical stem cells and embryonic stem cells.

Kalam presented a model of ASTROSAT, India's first multi wavelength astronomy satellite, which will be launched on board the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle in April 2011.

Is that your best offer? by Debbie O'Halloran
Dealing with the salary question is often the most difficult interview question facing job seekers.

Most job seekers feel understandably anxious, embarrassed and uncomfortable when the time comes to discuss salaries. Advice such as "never bring up the issue of salary, let the interviewer say it first," is rarely helpful if you don't have any idea of how to respond when the topic does come up.

The Top Twelve Tips to Negotiating Salary in an Interview:

Be prepared.  Before going to the interview, it’s crucial to research the company and salary range for the position you are applying for persons with your background and experience.  Have a salary range in mind and be prepared to discuss these figures once salary negotiation has come up.

Know your absolute bottom line. Know what your minimum salary range must be to support the life you want to live. So decide, before you go into an interview, what salary you want to earn, what you need to live on, and what you will be willing to settle for.

Market yourself.  Emphasise the reasons you should get the offer. Document your skills and accomplishments, and be prepared to talk about them.

Never discuss salary until you have a job offer. If you do, you could price yourself out of a job before the employer is convinced they need you. If pressed by the interviewers, tell them you’re flexible and would be happy to discuss salary when you learn more about the job. 

Get the employer to disclose salary before you do.  Don't be the first to mention salary during the interview. Let the employer bring it up as many times as necessary until you feel ready.

When questioned about desired salary, the best response is one that returns the employer's ball back into his court: You can say, “what kind of salary range are you working with?” or “Well, I’d like to make as much as other employees with my qualifications.” or “What is a typical salary for this position?”  Another strategy is to avoid a specific salary and name a pay range instead. Say: “I was thinking of a salary in the £25,000 to £35,000 range.”   

Do not disclose past salary.  Once your past salary is on the table, your negotiating edge goes out the window.  By not disclosing exactly what your current salary is or exactly what it would take to get you to leave your current job, you’ll force a potential employer to make its best offer.   

Don’t forget the value of benefits and perks when negotiating a salary.  Sometimes the salary offered may seem low, low enough for you to turn down the job. Benefits and perks can add up to 40 percent to your basic salary. Some benefits are fixed, but others are negotiable such as stock options, bonuses, employee discounts, training, holiday time and sick leave.  

Make your salary discussion a friendly experience.  Be amicable when discussing salary. You should make the employer feel that you are on the same side and working together to find a package that would satisfy everyone's needs.  

Don't say yes to an offer right away. Be enthusiastic and appreciative when you get the job offer, but ask for at least 24 hours to respond. This gives you time to get over your initial joy at being selected. If you feel the salary is insufficient, express your concern to the employer when asking for time to consider the offer. You'll find out right away whether the salary quoted is set in stone or is flexible.

Get it in writing.  Once you have accepted a job offer and salary level, be sure to get it in writing.

Declining an offer.  If you decide not to accept the offer, make sure you leave on the best of terms. Treat every offer seriously and graciously. You can never tell who you may be doing business with in the future so don’t burn any bridges.

Never underestimate the importance of negotiating salary in an interview. Employers tend to prefer those candidates who already earn a greater income. While these candidates cost more to employ, their higher incoming salaries are assumed to reflect greater competence, initiative and achievement. So it's in your interest to pursue income increases at every legitimate opportunity. 

Firstly, you immediately increase your income each time you succeed.

Secondly, you make yourself more desirable as a candidate for your next position.

And lastly, you increase your future income; the higher your salary/benefit package going into a new job, the better the offer a prospective employee must make to attract you.

Tips for a Successful Salary Negotiation

 

You have a job offer in hand. How much leeway do you have to negotiate salary and other conditions of employment? The answer ranges from not much to a lot. One key factor is the discussion of salary, benefits, and working conditions that occurred during the interview process.
You have likely shared your current or most recent salary with the potential employer; the potential employer may have shared the salary range for the position with you. The posted job ads may also have given you an idea about the salary range. Don’t count on this, however, since employers don’t want to lay their cards on the table first. After all, what candidate wants to be offered and accept a position in the low to mid-range of a stated salary range?

 

Salary Negotiation From the Employer’s Point of View

Consequently, the employer’s salary negotiation leeway depends on these factors:
  • the level of the job within your organization,
  • the scarcity of the skills and experience needed for the job in the job market,
  • the career progress and experience of the individual selected,
  • the fair market value for the job you are filling
  • the salary range for the job within your organization
  • the salary range for the job within your geographic area,
  • the existing economic conditions within your job market,
  • the existing economic conditions within your industry, and
  • company-specific factors that might affect the given salary such as comparative jobs, your culture, your pay philosophy, and your promotion practices.
Bottom line? How badly do you want and need this candidate? If you are too needy, your negotiation strategy will quickly turn into a capitulation. And, capitulation, paying more than you can afford, paying disproportionately to the pay ranges of your current employees, and paying a new employee salary and benefits outside of your comfort zone is bad for the employer and bad for the candidate.
The new employee’s work is scrutinized under a microscope; employer expectations may be way too high. Fellow employees may resent the negotiated salary and think of the new employee as a prima donna. In a win-win salary negotiation, both employer and employee leave the negotiation feeling ready to get started on a long term, successful relationship.
If you’ve ever been involved in an intense salary negotiation, you know that the negotiation can consume your mental and physical energy way beyond its importance. This is because, by the time you reach the stage of making an offer, you have spent the time to develop a pool of candidates. You have interviewed various candidates for weeks.
Your organization has invested significant time and energy in wooing and getting to know your final choice candidate. More sophisticated candidates, higher level candidates, and candidates with significant career progress will counter your initial offer letter, so expect it.
Additionally, expectations and needs of candidates can sometimes blind side the employer. If multiple people have conducted interviews – which I recommend – you have little control over the expectations expressed and what the candidate comes to believe about the position as a result of the interviews. You also have no control over the content of offers from other firms that can occur simultaneously.

Salary Negotiation Tips

While they are not meant to comprehensively detail how to conduct a salary negotiation, I offer you these hints and tips to ensure you conduct successful salary negotiations.
  • Negotiation is not about winning – unless both parties win. If either party feels they have capitulated, not negotiated, both parties lose.
  • Make every effort to identify the most recent salary and benefits your candidate received. Most organizations ask for salary on their job applications and in their job postings and ads. Some candidates offer W-2 forms and other proof of salary. You can also ask former employers during reference checking. You may not be able to match the salary but you will have a good idea of what the candidate will seek during salary negotiations.
