  1. So, bird racing is a sport… right? And a really popular one at that, especially in China where the idea of birds competing in long-distance races makes people drop whatever they are doing and watch the Aves go head to head. That's alright, we aren't judging. It is a free world and people have the right to love and feel passionate about whatever it is that makes their blood rush. What we are concerned about is how far can that passion take a man. PIPA, an online portal that sells racing pigeons, hosted an auction that ran for two straight weeks, during which they put up Armando, the Belgian city dove, known for his accurate sense of direction and strong wings, on the auctioning booth and the world went mental. In the five years of his existence, Armando, under the care of his trainer Joël Verschoot, 63, has gotten a reputation of being called the 'Lewis Hamilton of pigeons' and finds tricky weather conditions to be a “piece of cake” according to Verschoot's brochure. According to his former master, Armando has been ranked number 1 in bird races for two back to back years (2017 and 2018) and was the best pigeon to have travelled across Europe for competition in 2018. © PIPA His glory was surely known to the world, more specifically in China which saw nearly half a dozen enthusiasts bidding for the champion. With hourly bids rising by €100,000 the final bid worth €1,252,000 (Rs 10 Crores, approx.) came in a couple of minutes before the closing to the auction at midnight last Sunday, according to The Guardian. “The two Chinese had told me in advance that they absolutely wanted Armando,” Verschoot said after the auction. “But I didn't see this coming. This is a crowning glory of all those years in the pigeon sport. The icing on the cake.” As reported by the Press Association, Nikolaas Gyselbrecht, the founder and chief executive of Pipa, said: “This pigeon has a race record that has never been matched by any other pigeon… In football terms you have Messi and Ronaldo — it's that level.” Armando, who is nearing his retirement, will be made to breed with a “high quality hen” that is already waiting in China after being purchased for a huge amount of money. Twitter was unable to get its mind to accept the fortune of Joël Verschoot, the bird-keeper, who is literally a 'crorepati' now.

  2. 25-year-old Wang Shangkun will never forget the fateful year of 2011 when he took a life-altering decision that would leave him bedridden within the next eight years. When Shangkun was 17-years-old, he decided to sell his kidney in order to get his hands on the latest iPhone that was launched in the market. He hawked his kidney in the black market for $4,500 AUD (Rs. 2,29,357.89) and used this amount to purchase two Apple gizmos, an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4. At that time, Shangkun had reportedly said, “Why do I need a second kidney?” One is enough." © Asiawire,Australscope However, such is the irony of life, that today even his remaining kidney is failing him and Shangkun might be looking at a life tied to his bed. He was recently diagnosed with renal deficiency and has to undergo daily dialysis to function, since his remaining kidney can't work efficiently to clear his blood of toxins. Back in the day, when Shangkun had wanted to get his hands on the gadgets, the Anhui province resident of China didn't have enough money to afford the high-end products. However, it was in an online chat room that a possible opportunity presented itself. Shangkun was approached by an organ harvester in an online chat room who assured that selling one of his kidneys could fetch Shangkun 20,000 Yuan. © Asiawire,Australscope In no time afterwards, Shangkun underwent illegal surgery and finally got himself the Apple products he had been lusting after. However, it was his mother who thought something was fishy when she found him in possession of such expensive gadgets and made him confess. In the following months, Shangkun developed an infection in his remaining kidney, and ultimately suffered organ failure. As of today, his condition is so severe that he is in need of daily dialysis and has been left bedridden. Doctors have also suggested that he might need a kidney transplant of his own to get better. Talk about irony.
  3. When the sun rose on 17th November 1962, it was a new day full of opportunities and newer possibilities for every person. The early winter morning didn't betray the hidden chain of events that were to unravel as the day progressed. 21-year-old Jaswant Singh Rawat, of the famed Garhwal Rifles Regiment, was deployed in the NEFA region on this fateful day along with his unit - 4 Garhwal Rifles. The Indo-China war in the northeastern region of Nuranang (present-day Arunachal Pradesh) was soon to face the fourth assault from the Chinese Army, the final one after its two previous attacks were neutralised by his battalion. An attack that would turn this young braveheart into a legend. © YouTube Born on 19th August 1941 to Guman Singh Rawat in Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand, Jaswant joined the Indian Army on 19th August 1960, aged 19 years, as a Rifleman. On 17th November 1962, when the troops of Garhwal Rifles were ordered to retreat from the Battle of Nuranang, Jaswant refused to budge and desert his post. It was the last phase of the war, which had otherwise fared poorly for the Indian Army, as the Indian troops began to fray from a shortage of manpower and ammunition. So when the Chinese attacked that morning from the Sela top, they did not expect to encounter the daredevilry and rare courage of a young Indian soldier to come in their way and destroy their bigger plans. © YouTube The attack, which started on the morning on 17th November, went on for the next seventy-two hours. At one point, when the Chinese came to close to his company with an MMG, Jaswant decided to make the ultimate sacrifice and went ahead to neutralise it with Lance Naik Trilok Singh Negi and Rifleman Gopal Singh Gusain. In the events that followed, Jaswant held on to his post alone, fired continuously from different bunkers, and ended up killing almost 300 Chinese soldiers single-handedly, before he was fatally injured by the Chinese. This one selfless act turned the course of the entire battle and helped the Indian troops get an edge. The Indian Army was able to stop the Chinese progress into Arunachal Pradesh. It turned Jaswant into a legend and the locals have event erected a Buddhist temple at the spot. © Wikipedia Not just the locals, but even the Indian Army has kept Jaswant alive amongst them. According to an India Times report, a hut has been constructed on the spot where he was Martyred. The bed placed inside the hut is kept neat and tidy by the Army jawans posted there, while his shoes are regularly polished and letters sent to Jaswant are kept in the hut for Jaswant to read, and taken away the following day. It is also believed that this fourth assault gave rise to the legend of Baba Jaswant Singh who guards the Indian borders in the East. The locals also give a different account of the of the events that unravelled that day. They believe that when Jaswant's company fell back, he remained at his post. Then along with the help of two Monpa porter-girls, he set up weapons at different spots and kept firing at the Chinese troops in rotation, which created an illusion that the Chinese were facing the entire battalion instead of just one soldier. © Rediff/Rajesh Karkera It was only when the Chinese captured the man who supplied Jaswant with ration that they realised the actual situation. Following this revelation, one of the Monpa girls was killed in a grenade attack and the other was captured, while Jaswant killed himself by shooting a bullet to his head to prevent his own capture. No matter which version of the story we wish to believe, there is no denying the show of ultimate courage and sacrifice by him when was faced with a possibility that could cost his country a part of it's being and identity. Jaswant Singh Rawat, who was awarded the Maha Vir Chakra (posthumously), deserves to be remembered as the hero that he is, by one and all.

  5. In an attempt to show solidarity towards Huawei, companies in China are reportedly attempting to encourage employees to buy products from the Chinese giant. A Chinese textile company has released a notice banning staff who use iPhones from possible promotions and providing subsidies to those who buy Huawei devices. Several organisations and business groups in the country have issued notices urging staff members to show their support for the Chinese telecommunications giant by boycotting iPhones. © Reuters One company in Shenzhen, where Huawei is based, has even said that it will punish employees for buying iPhones. Menpad, which makes LCD displays and is one of Huawei's many suppliers, wrote in a statement on its website that “if employees buy an iPhone for themselves, the company will impose a 100 percent penalty on the basis of the phone's market price.” "So far, all members of the management team have changed their smartphones to Huawei models to show support for homegrown brands," a manager of Zhejiang Kangjiesi New Material Technology Co, based in Zhuji, East China's Zhejiang Province, surnamed Liu told the Global Times on Tuesday. © Reuters According to 9to5Mac, A Henan Province Brewer is offering free alcohol in the amount of 30 percent of the Huawei device sale price to both employees and customers who present a receipt. Xinjiang Nor-West Star Information Technology said in a statement they will only support Huawei, saying that it 'actively backs the calls to support Huawei and protect national brands with real action'. © Reuters Huawei's CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Vancouver on December 1 on behalf of the U.S Government under claims the company violated U.S. sanctions against Iran. China and U.S.A are currently in the middle of a trade war after the Trump Administration threatened to apply tariffs on US$ 200 billion of goods imported from China. The U.S has accused Huawei of using a Hong Kong shell company to sell equipment to Iran in violation of US sanctions. It also says Meng and the tech company misled banks about its business dealings in Iran. © Reuters A Chinese court also recently ruled that Apple infringed on patents by Qualcomm, and moved to block sales of some models of the company's smartphone. Apple said it is appealing the ruling.
  6. Just like everything else, Chinese companies try to copy or steal ideas from innovative companies and sell it as their own. Of course, there are a few exceptions to the rule however in a new scandal, Chinese hackers and spies were caught by U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for stealing confidential aircraft technology from American and French companies. According to the indictment, the two accused were Chinese intelligence officers. © YouTube We've already seen Chinese companies lifting ideas, technology and designs in other products such as smartphones, earphones and even cars; however, this is the first time Chinese intelligence officers have been caught stealing information. According to DOJ, that from January 2010 until May 2015, the officers and their teams attempted to hack and steal tech related to a new turbofan engine. Stealing the information would enable Chinese companies (public and private) to copy and build similar jet engines. Stealing of this information would prevent the Chinese from investing a lot of money into research and development. During the time of the hacks, a government-owned aerospace company was working to develop a comparable engine. © Pexels The Chinese hackers targeted firms like Capstone Turbine, French company Safran SA, that co-develops engines with U.S.-based General Electric and other companies in Arizona, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Oregon, and the United Kingdom. The packers used techniques such as phishing schemes, domain hijacking, and using the companies' own websites to steal visitor information. The two accused were employed by the French company and used their position to install the Sakula remote access trojan onto their systems. "State-sponsored hacking is a direct threat to our national security," said U.S. Attorney Adam Braverman. "The concerted effort to steal, rather than simply purchase, commercially available products should offend every company that invests talent, energy, and shareholder money into the development of products.” Seems like Chinese entities can't help themselves from stealing information and ideas rather than investing in research and development. Earlier this month, Yanjun Xu, a spy for the Chinese ministry of state security, was arrested for economic espionage and attempting to steal trade secrets from US aviation and aerospace companies.

  7. There was a time when the top smartphone brands in India included Micromax, Karbonn and Intex. Those days are long gone, new entrants in the market have completely changed the dynamics in the last few years and homegrown brands are nowhere to be seen. The top four smartphone brands in India include Xiaomi, Samsung, Vivo, OPPO, and Huawei. Out of these, only Samsung is from South Korea, and all others are based out of China. According to a report in The Economic Times, consumers have spent more than Rs 50,000 crore in the financial year of 2018, buying smartphones made by the top four Chinese brands. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The figure has nearly doubled than the last financial year and the the current trend suggests it will further increase. The top four here includes Xiaomi, currently India's top smartphone maker in terms of sales volume, followed by Vivo with a market share of 10 percent and OPPO at 8 percent. Other markers like Lenovo (includes Moto lineup), OnePlus, and Infinix make up more than half of the total Indian smartphone market by sales. These Chinese brands have completely saturated the market and placed their products in every possible price segment to lure the buyer. With global operations, these companies have managed to focus on India and the latest products have been coming in at a much faster pace now. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia While these brands are based out of China, they have heavily invested themselves in the country. In accordance with the government's Make in India initiative, all the major manufacturers have local assembly lines in the country. Local sourcing of phones ensures that employment is generated in the region and the companies are able to avoid high import duties. Xiaomi has already announced a plan to invest Rs 15,000 crore in setting up assembly lines while OPPO already has two facilities in Uttar Pradesh. Vivo employs more than 5,000 people in its plant and even Samsung (South Korean brand) has opened it's largest facility in the world at Noida. © Xiaomi The combined sales of these four smartphone makers doubled to Rs 51,722 crore from Rs 26,262 crore in FY17. The Indian smartphone market is valued at a whopping Rs 1.5 lakh crore in FY18. In Q3 2018 itself, more than 44 million smartphone units were shipped.
  8. All those people who think that women are the more emotional ones and that women let their feelings cloud their judgement, should see a Chinese guy's over the top emotional reaction to a woman rejecting his public marriage proposal. A 'crazy rich Asian' proposed to a girl with a Lamborghini only to be rejected, because money isn't everything and she's not a gold-digger. When you ask someone to marry you, the other person has the option of saying yes or no, right? So, you need to be prepared for the unfavourable outcome as well, and not throw tantrums when things don't go according to your plan. © Asia Wire Moreover, if you have to bring in some sort of incentive to get the other person to say yes, then you've already lost, sorry. The only reason this guy bought an orange Lamborghini was to increase his chances and he knew it. Come on, man, love can't be bought. © Asia Wire “I bought your favourite sports car for you.” “I'm so sorry, I don't want to. I'm so sorry.” © Asia Wire It's pretty clear that she's not interested. What do you do now? Accept the answer or make a huge scene? The guy went on to say, “I have money! I can buy as many of these cars as you like. I can buy whatever you want. Marry me! Marry me!” © Asia Wire The woman is still polite and turns him down again calmly, but he remains persistent and it starts getting annoying. She has had enough and kind of snaps at him, saying “You have money, so what?” and walks off. © Asia Wire But, the drama doesn't end there. The poor little rich guy's tantrums continue, and he throws a bouquet at the camera before destroying the products that were on display behind him. © Asia Wire Well, at least he didn't take out the anger on the car, that would've been sadder. Moral of the story – don't be like this guy!
  9. In the world of espionage, anything and everything goes and it seems like the Chinese may be using spy chips in hardware for surveillance. Since everything is manufactured in China, including the laptop I'm typing this story on, it is not far-fetched that the Chinese Government may be secretly installed spy chips in servers of leading companies. © Bloomberg A report by Bloomberg suggests that data centre equipment run by Amazon Web Services and Apple may have been affected by this very practice. The report claims that a tiny microchip was inserted during the manufacturing process. These claims have been strongly refuted by both Apple and Amazon. According to Bloomberg, these chips have been under investigation since 2015 where it was found these chips steal intellectual property and trade secrets. This practice may have been introduced by a Chinese server company called Super Micro. It is a company in China that assembles marines used in the centres at Apple and Amazon. © Reuters All companies in question have disputed this report while Super Micro has denied the introduction of these chips during manufacturing. According to government and corporate sources, Chinese spies have breached at least 30 American companies by compromising the supply chain. Super Micro, is one of the world's biggest supplier of server motherboards, capacitors and fibreglass-mounted chips. The Chinese Government did not deny this report specifically but said in a statement “China is a resolute defender of cybersecurity. It advocates for the international community to work together on tackling cyber security threats through dialogue on the basis of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit.” A blog post by Amazon noted that "there are so many inaccuracies in this article as it relates to Amazon that they're hard to count." Apple told CNBC "We are deeply disappointed that in their dealings with us, Bloomberg's reporters have not been open to the possibility that they or their sources might be wrong or misinformed. Our best guess is that they are confusing their story with a previously reported 2016 incident in which we discovered an infected driver on a single Super Micro server in one of our labs. That one-time event was determined to be accidental and not a targeted attack against Apple.” China and its companies have been suspected earlier for spying on American companies to steal intellectual properties. Companies like Huawei, ZTE have also scrutinised in the past for various reasons. We aren't entirely sure whether the report by Bloomberg is accurate or not.
  10. Learning a foreign language is not an easy task. It takes a lot of time, effort and dedication to learn a new language and be fluent in it. I am sorry but asking for 'wo-tah' instead of water does not count as learning a foreign language, it's just a fake accent. Language classes were a huge deal back in school and had most of us not bunked those lessons to watch movies with our friends, we would have learned something new by now, or at least could have gotten the world talking about us, just like how they are praising this Chinese woman right now. © Twitter What can be so special or unique about a Chinese woman talking about the Great Wall of China, that people are watching the video on loop? Her impeccable Tamil speaking skills. While most of us can't even speak our native language fluently, she made speaking in Tamil look like child's play for everyone watching the video. © Reuters Anand Mahindra, whose Twitter account is like a goldmine when it comes to looking for unique extraordinary talent, found and shared this video with the caption, "Not easy to learn the accent & cadence of the language but this Chinese lady seems to have conquered the Great Wall of Tamil." Thanks for this video Ravi. Fun start to a Monday. Not easy to learn the accent & cadence of the language but this Chinese lady seems to have conquered the Great Wall of Tamil. Have to ask my buddy @MM_Murugappan if he approves..ð pic.twitter.com/h3V8cr30Gm — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) July 30, 2018 Apart from her flawless Tamil speaking skills, people even loved her traditional attire (off-white Anarkali with a red dupatta). Although the way she spoke wasn't colloquial and looked like its straight from a textbook, we are really impressed with her efforts. I wish I had paid more attention to my foreign language classes, than on the food in the canteen!
  11. According to a report by our sister website ET, HTC is allegedly leaving the Indian smartphone market due to the stiff competition from its Chinese counterparts. According to the report, the top management of the company, including the country head Faisal Siddiqui, has resigned. © BCCL According to ET's sources, the company has asked the 70-80 member team to quit, apart from a few exceptions such as the Chief Financial Officer Rajeev Tayal. The company is also cancelling all distribution agreements in the country, as the company has stopped producing smartphones in India for over a year. One of the executives told ET, that HTC “plans to sell virtual reality devices online with Taiwan completely controlling Indian operation. This will be like an extremely small business.” © YouTube Other inside sources have said, that HTC may plan to re-enter the Indian market in the future as an online-only brand. HTC has been struggling as a brand globally, and it looks like the company won't make a return unless global revenues increase. A spokesperson from the company detailed that the company will continue to sell smartphones in India, and will invest in the country in the right segments at the right time. HTC has been unable to sway users to buy its products, as the company's sales have fallen by nearly 68% year-on-year. Reuters recently reported that the company plans to lay off 1,500 workers. © HTC According to Counterpoint Research, HTC has less than a 1% share in India and shares the same segment, which is currently being dominated by Apple, Samsung and OnePlus. HTC had seen success in the mid-segment in the Indian market, however, it wasn't able to compete with companies like Xiaomi, OnePlus, OPPO and Vivo. Did you ever own an HTC device or do you currently own one? How do you feel about HTC's exit?

  13. A hardware engineer, who until recently worked at Apple, was arrested at the San Jose International Airport while attempting to board a flight to Beijing. Xiaolang Zhang has been charged with stealing trade secrets from Apple surrounding Project Titan. © Twitter Project Titan is Apple's secret project, where the Cupertino giant is currently working on autonomous car technology. Zhang was a hardware engineer for the project and is now facing charges of Theft of Trade Secrets, with penalties of upto 10 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, a $100 special assessment and three years of supervised release. According to the filing, Zhang was designing and testing circuit boards to analyse data from various sensors on the self-driving car. This granted Zhang access to the database that contained trade secrets and other intellectual property. In April, Zhang left Apple and was visiting his family in China. He informed the company that after he returns, he would be leaving the company and would continue to live in Guangzhou. He also informed his supervisors at the meeting that he would be joining Chinese electric car startup XMotors. © Twitter After Zhang turned in his company-issued devices, Apple noticed unusual download activity which led them to believe that he may have obtained sensitive data from Project Titan. Security Cameras and badge swipes also placed him in company labs during his alleged paternity leave. He later admitted being in the Apple's hardware labs and stealing two circuit boards and a Linux server. Moments B4 flight to Beijing, ex-#Apple worker Xiaolang Zhang nabbed by @FBISanFrancisco at @FlySJC for stealing autonomous-vehicle trade secrets while on paternity leave, per @USAO_NDCA. Zhang told agents he intended to work for @xmotorsglobal & air-dropped data to wife's laptop pic.twitter.com/TRKC3lZmzu — Henry K. Lee (@henrykleeKTVU) July 10, 2018 All evidence was submitted to the FBO after Apple discovered that at least 60% of the downloaded data on his wife's computer, had trade secrets. The report says that the FBO describes the information as “largely technical in nature, including engineering schematics, technical reference manuals, and technical reports.” Apple released a statement and explained that it is working with authorities to make sure Zhang is held responsible for his misdoings. “Apple takes confidentiality and the protection of our intellectual property very seriously,” company spokesman Tom Neumayr said in an email. “We're working with authorities on this matter and will do everything possible to make sure this individual and any other individuals involved are held accountable for their actions.”
