Senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde on Tuesday stayed away from a crucial meeting of party’s MPs, MLAs and MLCs from Maharashtra, convened by state chief Sudhir Mungantiwar in the wake of the former’s rebellion. Party’s leaders however maintained that he would continue with the party and differences would be sorted out soon.The meeting followed speculation that after failing to get the party leadership to concede to his demands, Munde – the BJP’s deputy leader in the Lok Sabha – was on his way to join the Congress.After the meeting, Munde supporters left for his residence in Worli for further discussion over the issue. Leader of Opposition in the assembly Eknath Khadse said he was confident that Munde would not leave the party.Munde’s legislator daughter Pankaja Palve also sought to play down reports of her father breaking away from the BJP. She said there has been no offer to join any other party from anyone.In Delhi, former BJP chief Rajnath Singh said Munde would remain in the party and differences would be sorted out soon.Party spokesman Shahnawaz Hussain said central leadership’s talks with Munde were positive. Denying any knowledge that Munde was in talks with the Congress, he said, “Gopinath Munde was in Delhi where he met with senior leaders. Talks are positive and still underway. We will let the press know further developments.”Earlier, a meeting of the BJP top brass at senior leader L.K. Advani’s residence on Monday evening had apparently failed to convince Munde. Sources said the Pune BJP chief’s post, where Gadkari loyalist Vilas Mathkari was appointed over Munde’s candidate Yogesh Gogawale, remains a problem area with both the leaders from Maharashtra refusing to budge.advertisementFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 20 Jul 2015 – Western Union, once the most popular money transfer company in the Turks and Caicos is now closed. A notice is posted by Fidelity Bank & Trust International Ltd that the franchise will no longer be carried by their company in The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos and Cayman Islands as of Friday (July 17) past. The board of Directors said they have enjoyed the relationship with Western Union but was pressed to close the doors with the change in economic times and risks. Global reports reveal that cheaper digital money services like Paypal pose too much of a threat on the $9.6 billion dollar company which has seen stocks decrease significantly this month. It was reported in the TC Weekly News in May that the company might be pulling out; again, as of Friday Western Union has closed up shop in the TCI.

As consumer magazines continue to dig their way out of the economic recession, several hundred top managers across the industry gathered in Chicago early this week for the MPA’s American Magazine Conference to talk about the issues facing their business and the tactics for overcoming them.The speaker lineup included Barnes & Noble CEO Howard Shultz, Hulu CEO Jason Kilar, Wired creative director Scott Dadich, “The Facebook Effect” author David Kirkpatrick, Oprah Winfrey and many more. Much of the discussions surrounded the impact of e-readers and tablets—especially Apple’s iPad—on the magazine market. Other conversations focused on not focusing too much on the iPad and its impact on the industry.During the event’s kick off, incoming CEO Jack Griffin outlined five industry goals he called “principles of success.” (See more about those here.) Hulu’s Kilar discussed the success he’s seen in media while VivaKi chief strategy and innovation officer Rishad Tobaccowala (great name, great keynote) talked about how the future of magazine/media “does not fit in the containers of the past.”And while all the content was going on, there was a decent amount of chatter happening behind the scenes on Twitter by attendees. Here, I’ve assembled a collection of some of those Tweets (including some of my own) that I thought captured the best sound bites and perspective. See them below, in reverse chronological order.

The inauguration ceremony of the Japanese Language Teachers’ Training Centre was held at Jawaharlal Nehru University on July 23.The event was attended by Kenji Hiramatsu, Ambassador (Japan); Tomoyuki Sakurai, Executive Vice President of Japan Foundation(Japan) along with the Indian dignitaries like General V K Singh, Minister of State for External Affairs and Professor M Jagadesh Kumar, Vice-Chancellor of JNU among others.Looking back at the Japan-India summit meeting held in September 2017, Prime Minister Abe and Prime Minister Modi decided to train 1,000 teachers and launch Japanese language certificate courses at 100 higher educational institutions in India, in the next five years. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe establishment of the Japanese Language Teachers’ Training Centre is the first major outcome of our bilateral collaboration to achieve the target set by the two Prime Ministers.Activities at the Japanese Language Teachers’ Training Centre will be steered jointly by MEA and Embassy of Japan with the support of the Japan Foundation.The Centre started its first training course on the same day.

He further added stating, “The number of Japanese companies is increasing every year, and is now about four times the number as 10 years ago. These companies require Indians who can speak Japanese, in order to act as bridges between their Indian subsidiaries and headquarters in Japan.””The number of Indians who are interested in Japan and want to learn the Japanese language is steadily increasing. But the number of Japanese language teachers is still too small vis-à-vis the number of potential learners. The centre will certainly contribute to addressing this reality.”Sakurai said, “I am expecting excellent Japanese language teachers are trained through this project, and many Japanese language courses will start at higher institutes in India.”V K Singh said, “Japan is an important partner of India. Development of Japanese in India enhances people to people contacts and helps many ventures that will come in India.”
