How 29-year-old Akshaya Shanmugam made it to 'Forbes 30 under 30's list

29-year-old Akshaya Shanmugam, hailing from Chennai, recently found a place in the 'Forbes 30 under 30' list of entrepreneurs and innovators corresponding to the healthcare sector. Her company, Lumme Inc., has produced an innovative device that helps people against addictive behaviour, and it was made after putting machine learning, behavioural psychology and wearable technology together. This device makes a prediction of a potential relapse when it senses the movements and actions of a person who smokes.

According to a report by Times of India, Akshaya said,

"Our platform automatically detects addictive behaviour, predicts indulgence in addictive behaviour, and prevents it by delivering clinically validated interventions. It also helps individuals gain better insights into their daily life and helps them understand the why, how, and what surrounding their lifestyle choices."

After finishing her schooling at the Chettinad Vidyashram in Chennai, Akshaya did her engineering at Sundararajan Engineering College, followed by higher studies in the US. In the year 2009, when Akshaya was doing her PhD, she was working on the development of systems that assess and monitor health. During this time is when she met Abhinav Parate, who was also working on a wearables-related thesis. With his help and a little assistance from her professors, she started up her company 'Lumme' with an objective to attempt and solve addiction.

Smokers wear smart watches through their routine and this device observes and analyses their behaviour as they smoke on a given day. It predicts when the smoker is going to start lighting another cigarette and an alert is sent six minutes before the act.

A Forbes profile of hers says that Akshaya has raised $1.7 million in non-dilutive funding for Lumme, from National Institute of Health.

According to a Financial Express report, Akshaya is also the recipient of the Hluchyj fellowship, Special Tang award, David Wolf prize, Glass family demonstration award. She has also garnered business scholar award, the Eugene M. Isenberg scholar award for two consecutive years.

Trump's Order: Punish Those Companies That Outsource


WASHINGTON: U.S. President Donald Trump said he has prepared an "economic-development" measure that would punish companies that globally outsource jobs.

The bill would provide economic incentives for companies, Trump said in an interview published on Tuesday, and reward firms that maintain jobs in the United States, and deliver punitive measures against those that move operations offshore.

The bill would provide economic incentives for companies, Trump said in an interview published on Tuesday, and reward firms that maintain jobs in the United States, and deliver punitive measures against those that move operations offshore.

"It's both a carrot and a stick," Trump said. "It is an incentive to stay. But it is perhaps even more so - if you leave, it's going to be very tough for you to think that you're going to be able to sell your product back into our country."

He did not specify what the rewards or punishments would be. The White House was not immediately available to comment.

Trump, a New York real estate developer reality television host, has struggled to translate his business experience into government success, failing to push through any major legislative victories.

The Trump administration has repealed a number of regulations, such as the Clean Power Plan, which was former President Barack Obama's cornerstone regulation to fight climate change. The head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said on Monday he would rescind the rules.

Infosys may ask nearly 1,000 Senior Executives to leave

Recently, about 400 senior executives of Cognizant accepted the company's voluntary separation package. Cognizant had announced this programme for directors, associate VPs and senior VPs a few months ago.

French IT services major Capgemini had reportedly asked over 35 VP, SVPs, directors and senior directors to leave in February.

According to sources, nearly 1,000 Infosys employees at job level 6 and above (group project managers, project managers, senior architects and higher levels) are expected to be asked to leave.

Large IT services companies are all in the process of laying off employees on a scale not seen since the 2008-10 downturn. Those taking the hit first are mid- and senior-level professionals -- those with 10-20 years of experience.

Layoffs in the senior slab in the tech sector have been predicted by the Experis IT Employment Outlook Survey from Experis IT-ManpowerGroup India for October 2017-March 2018. The survey found very little demand for senior-level IT executives among employers.

In the survey, merely 3% of employers wanted to hire people at the senior level. The highest demand was seen for candidates in the 0-5 experience slab, with nearly 56% of the 500 employers surveyed displaying an intention to hire people in this group. Another 41% wanted to hire those at the middle level (5-10 years).

A major reason for layoffs at the senior level could filling up of vacancies internally rather than going for external recruitment. Another reason is automation taking away traditional team lead jobs becoming redundant.

For example, project leaders are increasingly being rendered superfluous as automation kicks in big-time and newer, more specialised roles emerge in India's $160-billion IT industry.

Peter Bendor Samuel, CEO of IT consulting firm Everest Group, said industry growth has slowed and the 'arbitrage first' segment (traditional IT services) is in secular decline. "When this is added to the pyramid factory model, which requires new freshers to be brought in every year to keep cost low, it results in an excess of more experienced employees," he said in an interview to ET in May.

Google Domains (a) domains.google.com Now Available in India for booking .com domain names at just 860 rs

Google has launched Google Domains for India. The domain registrar service is available in beta phase for Indian users. The key USP of the service is its simple and user-friendly interface.

The domain registration service will give neck-to-neck competition to leading domain registrars like Godaddy, Bigrock, Hostgator, Bluehost, Namecheap etc. The search engine giant claims that Google Domains offers the most user-friendly interface among all available options. Google is not offering any incentive or offers to early users.

Google Domains lists all the steps right from browsing the domain to setting it up in a user-friendly manner. Google is offering advanced options like hiding the customer's details from ICANN. The DNS management console offered by Google Domains is easiest among all other available options.

The best part about Google Domains is the easy integration with GSuite. Google Business email services are preferred by most custom domain owners in India. However, configuring GSuite services with a domain purchased from a third-party registrar like Godaddy involves a step-wise process. With Google Domains, one can simply click on the Setup email button and create emails with GSuite.

In the price competitive market of domain registration, Google is charging more than Rs 800 for standard .com domains. On the other hand, registrars like Bigrock and Godaddy have been offering .com domains at Rs 599 and .in domains for as low as Rs 99. Other domain registrars often throw in additional goodies like free email service and limited hosting space with the domain, Google is not offering any additional freebies as of now.

It is possible that Google might announce some launch offers. The service is currently in beta, you can expect a major announcement by Google when it launches the service for the public. The company is known for offering the best rates for businesses. Google had offered its business services of GSuite for free in 2011.

Google's biggest 'failures' as listed in Internet as on 18 September 2017

Now that the Apple euphoria has died down a bit, all eyes are on Google which will be unveiling its Pixel smartphones on October 4. There's a great sense of expectation from Google - perhaps its always there - to launch a smartphone which competition would be envious of. As a brand, Google is known for its collection of wildly popular products, from search to maps to Android, and now smartphones.

Although contrary to popular perception, the company certainly doesn't possess the Midas touch. In its arsenal, there have been a spate of failed products. Google Glass, which was supposed to wow the world, is notorious for making it to the Museum of Failure in Sweden. And who can forget Google Buzz, the company's much-touted social networking platform that almost failed to take off. Google's "miss" list includes many more.

Here's a list of Google products that failed to leave a mark...

Google Notebook was a precursor to Google Docs: You could copy and paste URLs or write notes that could be shared or published.

Google stopped development on Notebook in 2009 and officially shut it down in July 2012, transferring all data from Notebook to Google Docs.

iGoogle, a personalized homepage, was shut down in 2013. Created in 2005, iGoogle allowed users to customize their homepage with widgets.

Google said iGoogle wasn't needed as much anymore since apps could run on Chrome and Android.

Dodgeball, a service that let users check in at locations, was purchased by Google in 2005.

Its founders, which included Dennis Crowley, left Google seemingly on bad terms in 2007 and Crowley went on to build a very similar service, Foursquare, two years later.

Google Hangouts On Air -- Google's live-streaming service -- moved to YouTube Live in September 2016.

The service was originally created in 2012 when live streaming was catching on and was once used by President Obama and Pope Francis.

Google Catalogs, an interactive shopping program that digitized catalogs, was shut down in 2015.

Google shuttered the mobile version of Catalogs in 2013 and shut down the desktop version two years later.

Google Reader was a news-reading app that let users pull in stories from blogs or news sites.

Google announced it was shutting down Reader in March 2013 -- much to users' dismay and outrage -- and it was officially killed in July 2013.

Originally intended to give people access to health and wellness information, Google Health was closed for good in January 2012 after Google observed the service was "not having the broad impact that we hoped it would."

Google X, an alternative interface for the search engine, lasted exactly one day before Google pulled the plug.

A strange tribute to Mac OS X's dock, the site said: "Roses are red. Violets are blue. OS X rocks. Homage to you." Google X was quickly taken offline on March 16, 2005; the "X" name was soon repurposed as Google's research division.

10 of the most-funded startups to fail in 2017



Beepi

Shut down in February 2017

Raised $148.95 million in 5 Rounds from 35 Investors.

Beepi is a textbook case of a startup with a good idea -- a marketplace for people to sell and buy used cars, which would be vetted, processed and delivered to the new owner by Beepi, bypassing the costly overhead and commission structure of car dealerships. And there was some solid execution -- strong customer service was a big selling point. But ultimately the company was run badly.

It had been valued as high as $560 million in previous rounds of funding, after raising money from 35 investors, including Yuri Milner, Comerica, Redpoint, Foundation Capital, Sherpa



HomeHero

Shut down in February 2017

Raised $23.02 million in 3 Rounds from 7 Investors.

HomeHero shut down in February 2017 after its bid fell through to provide non-medical home care. CEO Kyle Hill blamed switching to W2 employees from 1099 contractors as the reason why the company lost its core identity, calling it an "inferior employment business" in a post on Medium.

The company had raised $23 million to connect home care workers with the families that need them. Along the way, it partnered with hospitals and launched a service that helps people monitor the health of their family members under the care of providers hired by HomeHero.



Auctionata

Shut down in February 2017

Raised $95.65 million in 6 Rounds from 15 Investors.

Auctionata shut down its operations after expected financing fell through. The company had previously raised more than $95 million since its founding in 2012 to broadcast online live auctions for fine art and collectables.

Live-streamed auctions have been a long-held ambition among many in the art world. Such a format has the potential to open the physical floor and all the bidding hype that comes with it to a much wider audience, and with that raising the bids for items on the block. But early attempts at live-streamed events failed to meet their estimates (so to speak...), complicated by slow broadband speeds, and much more.

Quixey

Shut down in May 2017

Raised $164.9 million in 4 Rounds.

Quixey launched as a mobile search company based out of Mountain View but later branched out to making a digital assistant for apps.

The company raised $164.9 million and, at one time, had a valuation north of $600 million. Yet, as the company was building its digital assistant, so was Apple and Google and startups like Viv, which Samsung would eventually acquire.

Once upon a time the company touted its ability to help users find content within their apps, eventually saying it has developed technology that can take you straight from the search results to personalized actions like showing nearby friends in Facebook or bringing up your own playlist in Spotify.

Yik Yak

Shut down in May 2017

Raised $73.5 million in 3 Rounds from 9 Investors.

The once-popular anonymous social network Yik Yak shut down in May of 2017. Apparently all the cyberbullies and unsavory content drove down the app experience for others. By the end of 2016, user downloads had declined 76 percent versus the same period in 2015, as TechCrunch reported then, and the company began laying off most of its employees.

The app faced problems that were predictable for any forum offering users anonymity and a means of chatting with one another. It was plagued by cyberbullies of every kind and even banned by some schools. But all the capital and advice in the world couldn't help it maintain its buzz.

According to Crunchbase, Yik Yak had raised $73.4 million in venture funding since it was founded in 2013, with a valuation approaching $400 million in 2014, its halcyon days

Indian Premier League media rights deal for Rs 16347.50 crore for next 5 years

In an intense bidding war in Mumbai, Star India bagged the IPL media rights for Rs 16347.50 crore for the next five years

Star India on Monday bagged the Indian Premier League media rights for a whopping Rs 16347.5 crore for a period of five years from 2018-2022. In an intense bidding war in Mumbai, Star India pipped 23 other top companies participating in the auction.

The IPL media rights auction, segregated into two categories -- broadcast and digital (internet and mobile) rights -- was expected to yield to the BCCI an estimated earning of over 20,000 crore through the traditional bidding process.

Bids were also invited for five other categories - US, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and rest of the world.

Earlier, BCCI Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rahul Johri had said that the revenue generation from the upcoming IPL media rights auction could be "historic", considering the huge interest shown by various stakeholders.

A total of 24 bidders bought the bid document, including Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, Yahoo, Reliance Jio, Star India, Sony Pictures, Discovery, Sky, British Telecom, and ESPN Digital Media.

In 2008, when the IPL started, roughly six companies purchased the bid document for the first rights cycle.

All were television entities and, eventually, only two qualified for the bid -- the Sony-World Sports Group alliance and Nimbus.
