Yahoo turns out to be Verizon’s White Elephant

If you have a Yahoo account, its high time you should log in and change your passwords and check for any other suspicious activities after yahoo itself has started taking steps to invalidate the unencrypted security questions which it had been reportedly declining to take since September this year.

Yes, that’s true yahoo has encountered a much drastic security apocalypse after the reported incidents of 2013 and 2014. The breach disclosed in September was believed to have hacked 500 million accounts, but a recent disclosure revealed the number has hit as high as one billion. Yahoo was warned with a massive breach by US law enforcement and has validated the data with the help of outside forensic experts. The data does not appear to include payment details or plaintext passwords, but it still doesn’t let its users off the hook.

Verizon on the way of an unperformed unclosed 4.8 billion deal over which the authorities had already been seeking a discount of one billion alluding to 2013 hack, may now hit the ceiling with the options of renegotiating or walking away. Sure Yahoo may still have millions of users visiting its site, but the soaring shares of the company will definitely cover it with an aura of hauteur and skepticism regarding the deal.

What users need to do?

Under these Circumstances of commotion and uncertainties prevailing in the security framework of yahoo, users should update their important account details immediately!

  • Change your password to a strong one, probably the one using alphanumeric characters.
  • Change your recovery info – Update your alternate email address and mobile number.

Unravelling GST!

Have you ever pondered over the price you pay for the goods you buy, over the raw material expenses and the overall tax that government is charging you over the goods? It’s high time since the GST bill’s constitutional amendment is being talked about and we as citizens are unaware of it’s basic principle and working.

Here is the GST bill unravelled!

Suppose one fine day you plan to sell the food that’s made in your kitchen. You buy vegetables, spices, use your cooking gas over it. Suppose the raw materials you’ve been using costs you a sum of Rs. 100, now this sum already includes a tax payment of rupee 10 say at a tax rate of 10%. Now when you process food, lets say you invest in a sum of Rs. 20 more while using your resources processing it. Now the total value of your food becomes 100+20= 120. According to a tax payment at rate 10%, this sum corresponds to a tax of Rs. 12. Now do you see the glitch? This Rs. 12 already includes a tax that you’ve paid in buying the raw materials. So, the actual tax that you are to pay is 12-10= Rs. 2.

So can you imagine this scenario when extended to various stages of processing will accumulate a large sum of tax that a consumer has to pay including indirect taxes like luxury, excise duties VATs etc. This system has a number of bottlenecks as the companies have to pay a huge sum of taxes for selling it’s goods across the state. Not only will this do away with the excess taxes, but will give the regional competitors and start ups a chance to become national brands. Goods and Services tax bill is about bringing a tax reform in this imbroglio, and using a uniform and correct approach to impose taxes on it’s citizens. Also it is going to decrease the overhead for tax collection charges on the government. It sure is going to bring a about a revolutionary change in the taxation system of India, but there is a major setback to it too, it does not apply to lucrative sectors like Oil, real estate and alcohol, but will increase the prices of the tax on our mobile phone bills from 15% to 18% as is mandated by GST. Also there are other political obstacles to its amendment in April 2017. The opposition wants the constitutional amendment to specify the tax rate. It’s been given a whole lot of time just because the fact that any further changes to the tax bill will require a lengthy amendment process again.

Besides all of this happening, all we can do as citizens is play martinet in paying taxes as we see the government officials hustle for this radical change. 16 years is one hell of a time waiting for such a reform, where it is going to be easy for companies to conduct a business and carry out its logistic processions. So we are all tied up for another epochal era of government’s remarkable reform measures. Hurray!


Urjit Patel- Embrace the Grind

So finally after a lot of hustle and rigorous interviews with 5 eminent candidates for the profile a panel of renowned members, we have been introduced to our new RBI governor Urjit Patel. What could be more reassuring than Raghuram’s right hand becoming his successor?

In 2013, then prime minister Mr. Manmohan singh wrote a letter of recommendation for Mr. Patel as the deputy governor of Reserve Bank of India. He is a very highly educated personality who has had an adroit work experience in Start up Infrastructure Financing and Energy. Born in Kenya, he has completed his studies in UK and US before coming to India. He has attained a bachelors degree in Economics from London school of Economics and an M. Phil from Oxford university in 1986. He has helped the government in bringing about reforms in airports, roads, ports , telecom etc. Times of India Entitles him as a inflation warrior with corporate background. Here is a list of his remarkable work experience:

  • At IMF India desk from 1991-94 transition period.
  • President of Business Development in Reliance Industries Limited from 1997 to 2006.
  • Served the Ministry of Finance, Department of Economic Affairs between 1998 and 2001 as a consultant.
  • Between 2000 and 2004, worked with several Central and State government committees such as the Task Force on Direct Taxes, the Ministry of Finance, and the Secretariat for the Prime Minister’s Task Force on Infrastructure.
  • Deputy Governor of RBI for a period of three years in 2013.
  • On 20 August 2016, appointed as the governor of Reserve Bank Of India(RBI).

Not just his dynamic educational profile but his commendable work and contribution towards Indian Economics that led to his appointment for this prestigious position. Economist say his appointment will no doubt bring about  a stability in India’s Monitory Policies. His adept candidature for someone who has a depth of knowledge of India’s past and present and one who has had around the world view and experience in Corporate world will surely prove a panacea in reshaping India’s Monitory policy and controlling Inflation.


The Legends Speak

Mark Cuban says, “If you’re prepared and you know what it takes, it’s not a risk. You just have to figure out how to get there. There is always a way to get there.”

 The real muscle lies in giving yourself a Head start. There are legends who have led dauntless lives taking potentially harmful risks at every point of their life. Not that they had the power to dodge them off, they just had this extra ordinary instinct to overcome them in seamlessly ordinary way. Once you have analyzed your potentials and have had that invincible urge to utilize them, you will have concomitantly visible results to your endeavors. Common man often underestimates what can be done in a lifetime and overestimates what could be done in a day. You will be frustrated at how you can’t see a perceptible change in your life gradually as you grow, but one fine day when you look back, there are going to be innumerable things to celebrate. Just keep going.

Global women power!


Women since ages were stereotyped to belong to the domestic sector. Their potential lied in a derelict, unheeded as they were considered debutantes for the household chores inside the four walls and not beyond that.

Nobody ever envisaged an era where these homemakers, could be seen running successful enterprises and businesses. But nobody either imagined Airplanes, televisions or any of such technological advancements anywhere near future. Thanks to an incredible workforce of indigenous scientists, researchers, who have made these advancements possible, and hence forth we started seeing a spark of insurgency amongst women to be as equally self-established as men.

Today there is no dearth of women working successfully with their self-established business; say eatery, a boutique, a textile industry, media or even an IT industry. We today live amongst the most creative, talented, confident, dauntless and enthusiastic women, who can by every means, match pace with this fastest growing economy.

Women are the domestic Managers; they have dozens of lives connected with their own.”

  • Liquid diet is myth, fiber helps to digest. In simple words take every kind of food in appropriate amounts unless you are lactose or gluten intolerant.
  • Try walking on foot, wherever possible. It helps you burn calories.
  • Take a minute out to relax, smile, laugh and get going with your errands.
  • Eat foods that are a source of anti-oxidants, blueberries and spinach for instance.
  • Do not avoid egg yolks. They are a vital source of nutrient, except for allergic and intolerants.

Brain Workouts! Why sit back when you can proliferate your brain throughput?

Do you have healthy brains besides a healthy body?

Your brain has the caliber to do the impossible; it is blessed with an intellectual instinct that is capable of doing amazing things. So the more often you use it, the better it would work.

Though physical exercises give you a push in dodging off dementia and increasing your cognitive span, but there are a number of brain workouts that would give your brain a head start and boost its overall functioning and throughput.

Researchers have stated that those who have a healthy brain and body behaviors tend to significantly reduce the risk of dementia and stress.  We all have different work routines. Some do work that drives their analytical skill, requires their brain to be pro-active all the time, whereas some tend to be doing more of physical work as a part of their daily routine. Hence, in order to make to ends meet we need to co-ordinate and create a balance between the two kinds of lifestyles.

Although a professor at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas has stated that brain works through associations. Basically, do things that stand out of your routine. That is, brain works at its best when it involves maximum number of senses.

  • Your morning newspaper is the best way to start with; you can start your day with solving crossword puzzles or Sudoku, published in the repertoire of your morning newspaper.


  • Exposure to blue light helps your brain stay more alert and awake; sun is a vast source of blue light. Go for a fifteen minute walk in the sun for giving your brain a push.


  • However at the end of the day when your body prepares itself for sleep and your brain needs to wind down, you should prefer to stay in the dark.


  • Another peculiar brain workout can be intermittent fasting. Going a few hours without food will help you lose fat as well as help your brain to fight stress.


  • Stimulate your taste buds, as you eat a variety of flavored food, try recognizing the taste if the herbs and the spices. Its helps your brains stay conscious and alert.


  • Co-ordinate your senses. Usually learning a new hobby is the best way to do this. Try knitting. Gardening, puzzle solving, painting etc. Try doing two different tasks at the same time. Not very often though, it may mess your work up but just keep giving it a try every now and then.


  • Try doing exercises that involve both your brain as well as body. Learn new sports, meditate and perform aerobics. Yoga is also a very effective way to keep your brain efficiently working.


  • Learn a foreign language. It is often believed that maintaining a rich vocabulary keeps your brain away from cognitive impairments.


  • Hippocampus is the area of the brain that associates memories and odors. Open your car window while you travel and on the way try to recognize every sound, every smell you come across. This will enhance the cognitive abilities of your hippocampus area.


  • Try using touch to recognize the subtle differences between objects. Shower with your eyes closed, it helps in increasing simulation in cortical areas and aggrandizing the synapses.


  • Art is the best way to connect to brain’s emotional and non-verbal instincts. It helps you reduce stress and give your brain a respite from a hectic routine.


Hence, there can be a number of other things you can figure out to train your brains to bring out the best in you. Following these simple and affordable norms can help your brain get along really really well.
