Ohio StateUrban Meyer is attempting to replace quite a bit of talent this summer. His Ohio State football team lost 15 players to the NFL, but the show goes on in Columbus, Ohio, which will likely still be home to a top 10 team. The Buckeyes will still be a top 10 team because Meyer has been recruiting at an extremely high level and there are plenty of of four and five-star prospects ready to step in. Those young players have apparently been performing fairly well this offseason. Ohio State released today a hype video titled, “Young Bucks On The Grind.” Check it out:15 #Buckeyes gone to the #NFL?

New Delhi: Tax evasion is likely to get more difficult if not impossible with the entry of Big Data Analytics into the Income Tax (I-T) Department’s realm of tools to check tax evasion starting April 1. The Rs 1,000 crore programme named “Project Insight” would track social networking profiles of people and keep a tab on the expenditure patterns through the photographs and videos uploaded on social media. If the purchases and travel expenses are found to be disproportionate to the declared income of a person, the I-T officials would be informed of the mismatch and actions would follow. According to informed sources, the I-T Department has given the tax officials access to the software from March 15. “If you are travelling to a foreign country and posting pictures on social media, or buying a luxury car which is beyond your means as per your returns filed, the I-T Department can use Big Data to analyse them and check the mismatch between your earnings and spendings. The process can easily use the complete trail even for the new tax filer,” said people in the know of things. “The I-T Department can also prepare a master file containing all the details and key information about individuals and corporates,” they said. The main objective of the project is to catch the tax evaders and increase the number of people filing returns and paying taxes. The Insight Project will feature an integrated information management system, which will harness machine learning to help take the right step at the right time. The software would also collect web pages and documents that could be probed by the I-T Department. With the usage of Big Data Analytics, India is set to join a league of countries such as Belgium, Canada and Australia which already use Big Data to keep a check on tax evasion. Since the inception of the technology in Britain in 2010, the system has prevented the loss of around 4.1 billion pound (Rs 36,942 crore) in revenue. The software would ensure the overall scrutiny of all the returns filed and selection based on numerous small parameters from which the probability of tax evasion is likely to be nil, according to analysts.
Washington DC: A 31-year-old Indian national has been sentenced to eight years and nine months in prison on Monday for his involvement in a major call centre scam under which he and his co-conspirators extorted money from American residents by impersonating tax officers, the US Department of Justice said. Nishitkumar Patel, who had pleaded guilty to the charges on January 9, has also been asked by a Florida court to pay USD 2,00,000, forfeit cash and a 2015 Land Rover that was seized in October 2018. According to court documents, Patel connived with the US-based co-conspirators and the India-based call centres to extort money from American residents by impersonating Internal Revenue Service (IRS) officers between 2014 and 2016. The IRS is the revenue service of the United States federal government. During this period, they mislead the victims in believing that they owed money to the IRS and would be arrested and fined if they did not pay their alleged taxes back immediately, as per the documents. The conspirators collected the fraud proceeds by withdrawing cash from prepaid cards purchased and funded by victims; hiring other conspirators (runners) to retrieve money wired by the victims to those runners; and/or hiring runners to open bank accounts into which victims deposited fraud proceeds, revealed the documents. The defendants collected the proceeds by providing the runners with the victims’ names, locations, and amounts paid. The runners were directed to retrieve the fraud proceeds in cash and turn the funds over to the defendants, often less a payment to the runner for opening the account or conducting the transaction, according to the documents. Four others have already pleaded guilty for their roles in the scheme. On March 25, Alejandro Juarez was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison. Hemalkumar Shah, Sharvil Patel and Brenda Dozier are currently awaiting sentencing. “We here at IRS CI recognise the heartache and concern these crooks cause innocent people. This is why we are eager to team up with our law enforcement partners to track down these impersonators in whatever corner of the globe they may be hiding in,” said special agent in-charge Mary Hammond of IRS Criminal Investigations, Tampa Field Office.

But we can close this gap.”“As with last January we’ll make multiple signings to improve the squad, but it’s on our players now to fight, finish & win. Come on Fulham!” he concluded.

Somehow we doubt it.The track, which Billboard calls a “flashy banger,” has a hip-hop vibe with an empowering message for all those who are “busy ballin'”: “I’m goin’ all in/ It’s 5 in the mornin’, I’m busy ballin’/I ain’t even stoppin’/It’s 5 in the mornin’, I’m so devoted.”While we wait for what else Charli XCX has in store, you can likely catch some of her new music if you head out to see her on tour.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

Samsung’s hot selling device Galaxy S4 is expected to cross 80 million in sales this year, according to RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Sue.The smartphone which has already crossed the magic figure of 10 million since its launch in April is expected to hit 20 million in the second quarter of its sales, and keeping to the current sales record is expected to reach 80 million. The prediction is based on the current selling pace of Galaxy S4. Sue compared the shipments of Galaxy S4 with Galaxy S3.”Galaxy S-4 demand in the first month of availability has been incrementally better than our estimate of 10M units,” BGR reported Sue as saying.”In comparison, the S-III took nearly 2 months (50 days) to achieve the 10M units mark. Our broad-based channel checks at U.S. stores indicate that demand for the 16G S-4 devices remains strong with 32G Black devices mostly sold-out and 32G White devices yet to make it to the stores.”The Galaxy S4 smartphone which was unveiled at Radio City Music Hall, New York City, on 14 March had a worldwide release on 26 April.

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.

WASHINGTON — Discount airline Norwegian Air Shuttle has won permission from U.S. federal authorities for its disputed plan to expand flights to the U.S., fuelling the long-simmering battle between legacy airlines and low-cost carriers for transatlantic business.Norwegian Air Shuttle had fought for three years trying to secure permission for its Ireland-based subsidiary to expand transtlantic services.The decision was a defeat for several large U.S. airlines and their labour unions, who argued that Norwegian was getting around Norway’s labour and tax laws by operating new flights with a subsidiary based in Ireland.The Transportation Department said in a regulatory filing Friday that it approved a foreign air-carrier permit for the subsidiary, which is called Norwegian Air International.Regulators said they consulted legal experts in the State Department and Justice Department and found no grounds to reject the application.The decision upheld the Transportation Department’s preliminary approval of the permit in April.Norwegian Air Shuttle already flies between Europe and the U.S. It said the new service by the Irish affiliate would benefit consumers with lower fares and create jobs at U.S. destinations.More news: Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTThe AFL-CIO said it will ask Congress to reverse Friday’s decision.

Thursday, June 28, 2018 Tags: Tanzania << Previous PostNext Post >> Posted by TANZANIA — There’s never a shortage of videos of dumb people in the wild, and the latest one is certainly no exception.A couple on safari in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park were seen on camera trying to pet a lion through the window of their vehicle. The video, which has been viewed over 26,000 times, clearly shows a female arm reach out of the window in an attempt to pet the wild animal, which had been resting right below them.At first the lion paid no heed, but after a few seconds it bared its teeth at the passengers and roared. The male passenger in the vehicle quickly closed the window in response.Wildlife Sightings, who published the video, said that trying to touch a lion is “incredibly stupid and ignorant of the tourist that filmed the sighting.” According to The Sun, which had interviewed a South African safari ranger, the lion had the power to tear off a person’s arm or even pull the couple out of the window and kill them.More news: Can you guess the top Instagrammed wedding locations in the world?This is just the latest incident involving tourists acting foolishly in the wild.

The first time, the cheetahs ignored them entirely. But the second time, the cheetahs are seen circling the family, after which the man runs back to the vehicle. The woman is seen picking up the child, trying to stare down an approaching cheetah, and swatting it away as if it’s nothing more than a harmless mosquito.Fortunately, the woman and child made it back to the car just in time.Park manager Niels de Wildt confirmed the authenticity of the video to Dutch radio station NOS Radio 1 News, and said, “These people have been incredibly lucky.” Share Tourist tries to pet a wild lion and what happens next comes as no surprise to anyone Travelweek Group
