Modi government shifting important establishments out of Maharashtra: Shiv Sena 22.5.2015 DNA: Popular News
In what could be a flash-point between the allies, Shiv Sena leader and Maharashtra industries minister Subhash Desai has accused the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre of planning to shift some important offices outside the state. In a letter to the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Desai has alleged that the Centre plans to move the office of Controller of General of Patents, Designs and Trademarks from Wadala here to New Delhi, and the National Marine Police Academy from neighbouring Palghar to Dwarka in Gujarat. "One of the under-secretaries in the Central government issued an order letter on February 18, 2015, saying that Controller of General Patents, Design and Trademark office is to shift to Delhi. "Mumbai is the financial capital of the country and there are several offices of international companies here and this head office is convenient to the industry in Mumbai, Maharashtra and the western region to register patents, design and trademarks. Therefore it should remain in the city," an ...

Yakuza Apocalypse review - berserk mess of a gangster-vampire hybrid 22.5.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Japanese genre master Takashi Miike comes to Cannes with a yakuza-meets-vampires-meets-monsters movie; no wonder, perhaps, that it’s just a mish-mash For all its berserk energy, you will need a very particular sense of humour not to lose patience with the prolific Takashi Miike’s latest, which goes under the highly encouraging title Yakuza Apocalypse. Miike, of course, is known for churning out an average of three films a year since the early 90s; and was unable to attend this Cannes screening due to having started work on the next one. However, he did send over an amusing short video message apologising for his absence, in which he appeared in full geisha drag, saying that he had switched professions and would never make violent films again. That, in truth, was the evening’s high point. When the film itself got underway, it began promisingly enough: Miike whipped up a series of his trademark gruesome fight scenes, as he followed a local crime boss, Kiamura, piloting a young protege, Kagayama, through ...

Rome Masters: Nadal upset by Wawrinka as Federer, Djokovic advance 16.5.2015 DNA: Popular News
Seven-time Italian Open winner Rafa Nadal lost 7-6(7) 6-2 to Stan Wawrinka on Friday meaning there will be an all-Swiss semi-final after Roger Federer crushed Thomas Berdych 6-3 6-3. Top seed Novak Djokovic dropped a set for the third successive match before reaching the last four with a 6-3 3-6 6-1 win over Japanese fifth seed Kei Nishikori. Nadal, the number four seed, twice earned breaks in a tight first set that lasted 76 minutes but slipped through his fingers in a 16-point tiebreak in which he held a 6-2 advantage. His trademark forehand again let him down at crucial moments and, as doubts crept in, eighth-seeded Wawrinka took control by winning five of the six second set games that went to deuce. Wawrinka and Federer meet for the first time since their ATP World Tour semi-final in which the 17-time grand slam champion saved four match points before winning in a third set tiebreak. Second seed Federer fell behind early against Berdych only for the Czech to double fault and give a break away in the ...

Basketball legend Michael Jordan engulfed in trademark dispute with Chinese sports firm 15.5.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
Michael Jordan will take a trademark dispute with a Chinese sports firm to China's supreme court, lawyers for the basketball star said on Friday, escalating one of several cases accusing local firms of illegally imitating global brands. The former Chicago Bulls star sued Qiaodan Sports in 2012, saying the sportswear firm located in southern Fujian province had built its business around his Chinese name and famous jersey number "23" without his permission. Earlier this year, a court ruled in favour of Qiaodan over the trademark dispute, and this ruling was recently upheld by the Beijing Municipal High People's Court, an official at the Chinese firm and legal representatives for Jordan told. Jordan will now take the case to China's top court, a spokesman for Jordan's legal team said in an emailed statement. "In light of the trademark dispute ruling, we intend to appeal to the Supreme People's Court for retrial," the statement said, adding that a separate case with Qiaodan Sports over naming rights was ...
