US lawmakers in bid to end shutdown stalemate 21.1.2018 The Tribune
Washington, January 21 US lawmakers will launch a last-ditch bid on Saunday to end a budget impasse before hundreds of thousands of federal workers are forced to start the workweek at home with no pay. The impact of the shutdown that began at midnight Friday has been largely limited so far, closing sites like New York's Statue of Liberty, but the effect will be acute if the stalemate runs into Monday. Republicans and Democrats have traded bitter recriminations over who is to blame for the failure to pass a stopgap funding measure by a January 20 deadline, a year to the day since Donald Trump took office as US president. Highlighting the deep political polarisation, crowds estimated to number in the hundreds of thousands took to the streets of major US cities Saturday to march against the president and his policies. Top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell on Saturday set a key vote for a funding measure for 1:00 am (0600 GMT) Monday, with both houses of Congress set to reconvene Sunday. "I assure you we ...

Adding this to your morning coffee could help you lose weight: Study 21.1.2018
London: If you are trying to speed up your weight loss, then you may want to try adding an egg to your morning coffee, as according to a recent study, doing so helps. A team of researchers found that many gym-goers use caffeine for a pre-workout boost, but adding a raw egg to that cup of tea or coffee may help you more. However, the practice of mixing raw egg and hot black coffee has been common among the Hungarian, Scandinavian, Vietnamese and even Minnesotan cultures for centuries, the Dailystar reported. Marc Bubbs, director of nutrition for the Canadian Men's National Basketball Team, said, "The combo started to gain popularity as a pre-workout drink". "I've used egg coffee a few times before, doing some fasted cardio in the morning", Marc added. Drinking raw egg could be dangerous as some are contaminated by the bacteria salmonella and which could cause you to throw up. However, raw eggs are safe in coffee, as the heat of the liquid may bring the temperature of the egg up ...

Scientists reveal surprising link between climate change and flowery forests 21.1.2018
Washington: Scientists have revealed a surprising relationship between surging atmospheric carbon dioxide and flower blooms in remote tropical forests. The researchers studying the rich tropical forests of Panama's Barro Colorado Island found that climbing rates of carbon dioxide have set the stage for a multidecade increase in overall flower production. "Over the past several decades, we have seen temperatures warming and carbon dioxide increasing, and our study found that this tropical forest has responded to that increase by producing more flowers," said Stephanie Pau, from the Florida State University in the US. The findings suggest that tropical forests, which have evolved over millennia to flourish in warm, equatorial conditions, may be more sensitive to subtle climatic changes than some ecologists predicted. "Tropical forests have evolved in generally stable climates," Pau said. "So while they may not be warming as much as some higher-latitude ecosystems, these ...

Even as MNCs opt for cloud services, 49% of India still wary of security 21.1.2018 DNA: Mumbai
While an overwhelming majority of global firms have adopted cloud services, there is still a wide gap in the level of security precautions applied by them, a survey has revealed. Almost half of Indian organisations say they are not likely to secure sensitive data in the cloud, according to the '2018 Global Cloud Data Security' survey by global digital security firm Gemalto. Globally, organisations said only two-fifths of the data stored in the cloud is secured with encryption and key management solutions, it said. The survey said there is a gap in awareness within businesses about the services being used. Only a quarter (25 %) of IT and IT security practitioners revealed they are confident they know all the cloud services their business is using, with a third (31 %) confident they know. The survey was conducted by the Ponemon Institute on behalf of Gemalto with 3,285 IT and IT security practitioners surveyed across the US (575), UK (405), Australia (244), Germany (492), France (293), Japan (424), India ...

SoFi in talks with top Twitter exec about CEO position: WSJ 21.1.2018

Social Finance Inc (SoFi) is in discussions with Anthony Noto, a top Twitter Inc executive, to become the online lender’s chief executive, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday, citing sources.

Noto, Twitter’s chief operating officer, has been offered the CEO position at SoFi, the report said, and was expected to make a decision in the coming days.

SoFi, one of the most valuable private financial technology startups in the United States, has been without a CEO for a quarter of a year, since Mike Cagney stepped down amid a lawsuit that alleged that he presided over a hostile work environment for women.

Twitter on Saturday evening declined to comment and SoFi did not immediately respond to inquires by Reuters.
