Amazing alleys of Amsterdam 14.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
When in Amsterdam, there is nothing more Dutch that one can do than to opt for the few free things one can participate in the city! And the Sandeman free walking tours are truly worth the two and half hours of sheer cardio that you are made to indulge in as you tread down the different alleys and experience the heady mix that is Amsterdam in a whole new way. Bas, our tour guide who is a proud Dutch, provided the right mix of the old and the new, of the political and the archaic, of food and history, of people and traits.

'Harmony walk is a flop show' 12.12.2017 Deccan Herald - District
Dakshina Kannada district BJP spokesperson Jithendra Kottari and BJP leader Harikrishna Bantwal said that District In-charge Minister B Ramanath Rais harmony walk is not to restore communal harmony in Dakshina Kannada district. Instead, it is an election campaign, insist the BJP leaders. Briefing reporters on Tuesday, Kottari pointed out that Muslim organisations and some political parties have not extended their support to the harmony walk led by Ramanath Rai. "Over the last four and a half years, communal harmony in Dakshina Kannada has been disrupted in the name of illegal transportation and slaughter of cattle and also in the name of Love jihad. However, Rai did not issue any statements against these two issues so far. Nor has any strict action been taken against those involved in illegal transportation of cattle," he said. Harikrishna Bantwal said, "The vote bank politics of Ramanath Rai has caused disruption in communal harmony in the district. The BJP and Sangh Parivar are not anti-Muslims. The ...

Google will soon launch a new update for Google Maps, which will guide users through every step of their journey and also tell when it’s time to get off. Most importantly, these updates will also appear on your Android smartphone lock screen. According to TechCrunch , users will have to first, enter the destination. Once the update is rolled out, they will see a Start button at the bottom of the screen with details about your transit journey.  Then, users will receive live updates as they walk or ride on your public buses and trains. It is also said to remind the user, to get off the bus or train when they are close to their destination. This makes sense when you are traveling to a new place. The report added, “While Google Maps always did a good job of giving you detailed transit directions, the process generally involved keeping track of your own progress along the route. With this update, transit notifications become a bit more like using Maps for walking, biking and driving.” The feature is said to ...
