OTTAWA — Ukraine is asking the federal government to send a message to Russia by extending and expanding the Canadian Forces’ training mission sooner rather than later.In an interview with The Canadian Press, Ukrainian Ambassador Andriy Shevchenko says he is confident Canada will extend the military mission, whose mandate is due to expire at the end of March.But he says the sooner an extension is announced, the stronger the signal to Russia that Canada remains a strong supporter of Ukraine.The Canadian Forces has had about 200 service members in Ukraine since September 2015 to help train the country’s military, which is locked in a war with Russian-backed separatist forces.Shevchenko is also praising Canada for continuing to support his country’s renewed bid for a UN peacekeeping mission, which Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko raised at the General Assembly last week.The ambassador predicts Canada along with the U.S. and European Union will very soon announce fresh sanctions against Russia after that country’s forces seized three Ukrainian naval vessels and 24 sailors in November.The Canadian Press

PR handoutHrithik Roshan’s Super 30 is a blockbuster and so is his performance as the ace mathematician, Anand Kumar, in the film. However, we must say that Anand Kumar’s life wouldn’t have been the same without the support of his brother Pranav Kumar, both off and onscreen.Pranav Kumar’s role was played with utmost authenticity and subtlety by Nandish Singh Sandhu. International Business Times, India, spoke to the actor exclusively on his experience of working in the film and controversies that the film landed itself into.How did you bag the role of Anand Kumar’s hot-headed brother in the film? Did you audition or were you offered the part? Take us through the experience. Oh! I wish I was offered the part, but, it didn’t happen that way. I got a call from Mukesh Chhabra’s office. At that point, they hadn’t revealed too much to me. They just briefed me about the scene that I was to audition for. I auditioned and got a call the next day informing that I had been selected. I went there the next day and then got to know everything about the film and who all were a part of the project. I read the script and was thrilled to be a part of it. After a few days, a meeting was set-up for me to meet Madhu Mantena, Vikas Bahl and Pranav Kumar who had come down from Patna. He had a few questions for me, I had certain things I wanted to ask him. After the meeting, Pranav Kumar and everyone else thought that I could play the part and I was finalised.We saw you as Hrithik’s brother in the film. What was your equation with him off-screen?Off-screen too we bonded like brothers. He used to ask about my whereabouts and invited me to where he was staying. Also offered me to accompany him to the gym and workout together. He kept asking me if I needed anything since we were shooting at a remote location. He took care of me and had also instructed his team to look after me. We also used to discuss scenes over phone and in-person. He has been very kind and never treated me as he is a senior.How is Hrithik as a co-actor? Any particular incident or memorable thing you would like to share from the sets. Hrithik is a delight to work with. He is very professional, flexible, giving, adjusting and is always available for discussions. He knows what he is doing and doesn’t interfere with what the other person is doing. He was very involved with the project. I remember he used to stay back even after his shots were done to give me cues, which even an AD could have given. But, he used to say that Nandish, you stayed to give me my cues, so I am here for your cues.The day I had to give my first scene, I was already in the village-person get up and the security guards literally pushed me outside thinking I was one of the villagers from the village we were shooting in. I had to make them understand that it was actually me before they agreed to let me in.When the first trailer launched, apart from the positive reviews, it also received backlash for Hrithik’s ‘accent’ and ‘look’ in the film. What do you have to say about that?When you do something, make something; there is going to be some healthy criticism and some positive feedback. Well, the product speaks for itself. People have loved it despite some negative comments. The trailer was criticised by a lot of people but now the same people are loving the film. The film has managed to do pretty well and has crossed Rs 100 crore and that speaks for itself. People were quick to judge just going by the trailer but after watching the film they understood that the accent and the tan were required and looked authentic.Would we get to see more of you on the big screen? Are you planning to bid adieu to small screen now?Absolutely, you would get to see me a lot more on the big screen. I am looking forward to doing a couple of good projects very, very soon. I am in the process of finalising things. I am just waiting to go on the sets again and give you all some entertainment very, very soon. The small screen is becoming smaller by the day. The web-series are being consumed in such mammoth numbers on mobile phones. I know that I want to do good characters, different characters. Currently, I would prefer film and web-shows as it gives you immense creative satisfaction.
3 min read LAS VEGAS — Mobile companies in recent years have shifted away from making huge product announcements at January’s International CES, saving announcements for their own events, or for Mobile World Congress in March. At CES this year we did, however, get a glimpse into what we might be able to expect in the mobile space in the coming year by way of announcements from two big players in the mobile processing space: Qualcomm and Audience.Here’s a look at what 2014 has in store:Better Voice Interaction FeaturesVoice processing company Audience announced the Audience eS700 series at CES, a family of always-on intelligent voice and audio solutions that will enable new levels of voice interaction with your favorite tablets and smartphones.”We believe that dependable, Always-on voice detection and actuation is the next must-have mobile technology,” says Peter Santos, president and chief executive of Audience.Related: The Coolest Tech Startups at CES 2014Audience’s previous processor is already used by a number of mobile devices, and enables your smartphone to continuously listen to its surroundings and respond when you talk to it. The newest version of the processor allows it to be always-on, waking up whenever you say a particular phrase, such as “Ok, Phone, Play Music” in front of your smartphone. With the newest version of the processors your phone will be able to hear you a lot better, cancelling out noise on a busy street or a crowded bar. It will also respond to you immediately, with no need to pause between waking your phone up and asking it to complete a task. That improved performance also comes with a reduction in the amount of battery power needed to make the function work.Audience is sampling it’s processor to partners now, and expects the eS700 series to be included in devices the second half of this year.Connected EverythingFrom app-supported Crock-Pot to a Android-powered fridge, 2014 will be a year of connecting all of our devices together. Qualcomm, the company behind the processor in many Android and Windows devices on the market today announced a new processor at CES, the Snapdragon 802, designed for televisions rather than smartphones.The processor is capable of playing Ultra HD video with simultaneously video conferencing with someone and surfing the web. It’s a powerful chip, that’s going to likely find its way into devices towards the end of year.Qualcomm also announced the Snapdragon 602A processor at the show, a processor designed specifically for vehicles that is expected to enable better apps and navigation services in your car.Related: The Connected Home: A Huge Opportunity But Slow to Catch On Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Tags: Air France, KLM Air France CEO resigns after employees reject wage offer Share By: The Associated Press PARIS — Air France-KLM CEO Jean-Marc Janaillac announced his decision to resign Friday as Air France crews and ground staff held their 13th day of strikes over pay and rejected the company’s wage proposal.In an electronic vote Friday, Air France employees rejected management’s offer for a 2% pay rise this year and additional 5 per cent raise from 2019 to 2021. A report showed that 55% of responders voted against the proposal.Unions want a 5.1% pay rise this year, arguing that their wages have been frozen since 2011 amid restructuring and noting that the company’s profits are up.The company argued it must preserve its ability to stay competitive against low-cost airlines and big-spending Mideast and Asian carriers.“This is a huge waste that can only make our competitors rejoice,” Janaillac said of the failed vote.Air France-KLM shares fell earlier Friday after the company announced the strikes had already cost the airline at least 300 million euros ($359,000). Air France-KLM also forecast a “notably” lower income this year compared to 2017.More news: A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerJanaillac, who had been in the post since July 2016, met with the company board Thursday to discuss the quarterly results and the forecast.After a protracted financial slump, Air France-KLM profits climbed last year as it expanded its global alliances and launched a new budget airline. The growth was helped by years of job cuts and other restructuring efforts.Janaillac warned last year that volatile fuel prices and geopolitical risks could threaten the company’s turnaround, but didn’t appear to predict the heavy toll that the strikes would take.Janaillac will formally resign at a Board of Directors’ meeting on May 9, the company said, adding that “it will be their responsibility to take the appropriate measures to ensure the continuity of the group and Air France during the transition period.”The CEO of Air France, Franck Terner, will oversee the day-to-day operations of the company.
