Meet the Indian teen who has developed world's smallest satellite for Nasa in June 2017




When the US' National Aeronautics and Space Administration (Nasa) launches the world's smallest satellite KalamSat on June 21, it will be the first time ever that it would be piloting an experiment by an Indian student. Developed by Rifath Sharook, an 18-year-old boy, from Tamil Nadu's Pallapatti town, KalamSat weighs only 64 grammes.

'KalamSat', named after India's nuclear scientist and former President, APJ Abdul Kalam, will be launched from a Nasa facility in Wallops Island. Sharook's project, the first to be manufactured via 3D printing, got selected through a competition, 'Cubes in Space', sponsored jointly by NASA and 'I Doodle Learning'. The project aims to take the performance of new technology to space.


Key features of the miniature satellite

Sharook said it would be a sub-orbital flight and after launch the mission span would be 240 minutes. The tiny satellite would operate for 12 minutes in a micro-gravity environment of space. "The main role of the satellite will be to demonstrate the performance of 3D-printed carbon fibre", the Times of India quoted Sharook as saying.

Speaking about his experience, Sharook added: "We designed it completely from scratch. It will have a new kind of on-board computer and eight indigenous built-in sensors to measure acceleration, rotation and the magnetosphere of the earth. The main challenge was to design an experiment to be flown to space which would fit into a four-metre cube weighing 64 grammes".

His experiment was funded by an organisation called 'Space Kidz India', said Sharook, adding he had a great interest in space and he was also a subscriber of the Nasa Kid's Club.

Kalam SAT was a experimental payload. It is named after former Indian president Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam and was built by an Indian High school student team. The high school team participated in Cubes in Space, a STEM-based education program by Idoodle Learning.Inc and NASA. As selected student competitors, the team won an opportunity to design experiments to be launched into space on a NASA rocket. Kalam SAT was launched on suborbital trajectory by NASA along with several other experiments on Terrier Orion sounding rocket on 22 June 2017 from Wallops Island flight facility in Virginia.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

The weight of the probe is 64 grams and it is fitted in a 3.8 centimeters cube. The probe is composed of 3-D printed reinforced carbon fiber polymer. The probe was launched by a sub-orbital spaceflight. The expected time span of the mission (post flight) is 240 minutes. The tiny probe will be operated only for less than 12 minutes to demonstrate the performance of 3-D printed carbon fiber in a micro-gravity environment of space.

The probe was built by seven Students from Space Kidz India, a Research Organization based in Chennai, as a part of a 'Cubes in Space' competition. This contest was jointly organized by NASA and 'I Doodle Learning', which is a global education company. This was the first time that a space probe made by an Indian student, was launched by NASA.[citation needed]

World's Smallest Satellite Created For NASA By 18-Year-Old Indian Teen



Although the space shuttle program may have been temporarily halted in the United States, NASA is still alive and well -- and now, thanks to 18-year-old Rifath Sharook of India, are launching their smallest-ever satellite into space. The satellite is called 'KalamSat,' named after Indian nuclear scientist, pioneer in the aeronautics field, and former president, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, and is the first-ever to be manufactured by 3-D printing, a tech trend we don't see disappearing (or even going away a bit) anytime soon. NASA is planning on launching it off of Wallops Island, Virginia, on June 21, according to the Business Standard.

Rifath's satellite beat out of a slew of other inventions at a competition jointly sponsored by NASA and 'I Doodle Learning' called 'Cubes in Space,' in an effort to bring new technologies and devices to space and solve current quandries as well as new ones. "The main role of the satellite will be to demonstrate the performance of 3-D printed carbon fibre. We did a lot of research on different cube satellites all over the world and found ours was the lightest," he told the Times of India. Despite being from a small town in Tamil Nadu called Pallapatti, Rifath does have bigger than big-city dreams for the 240 minute-long mission and his aeronautics career -- and has proved his scientific prowess in the past, too.

When he was just 15, he invented a two-and-a-half pound helium weather balloon from a ground in Kelambakkam, as a part of the Young Scientist India-2015 competition held by Space Kidz India. (Plus, in the past, NASA's also had assistance from other teens, like the 17-year-old Brit who noticed an error in the International Space Station data.)

Helping you avoid COVID‑19 online scams




We want to keep you safe whenever you're online. That's why everything we make is protected with powerful built-in security technologies that help detect and block threats before they ever reach you.

Recently, there has been a significant rise in online scams related to COVID‑19. We're providing these tips to help you spot and avoid these scams, so you can stay safer online.



Common types of COVID‑19 scams


Stealing your personal data


Scammers who ask for too much information, such as your address, bank account details or even PIN number to "fix" your insurance policy or conduct fake contact tracing.


Fake offers of goods and services


Massive discounts on masks or subscriptions to online entertainment services from unknown third parties.


Impersonation of authorities


Impersonation of government organisations like Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) and Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) offering COVID‑19 information.


Fraudulent medical offers


Offers of cures, test kits, hand sanitiser or face masks that never arrive.


Fake requests for charitable donations


Donations to support COVID‑19 relief from non-profits, hospitals, or other organizations should be carefully checked.


Tips to avoid COVID‑19 scams



Know how scammers may reach you


Scammers are taking advantage of the increase in COVID‑19 communications by disguising their scams as legitimate messages about the virus. Alongside emails, scammers may also use SMS, automated calls and malicious websites to reach you.


Check trusted sources directly


Scammers often pose as well-known, trusted and authoritative sources. Directly visit sources like Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) to get the latest factual information about COVID‑19.


Be cautious of requests for personal or financial information, pause and evaluate before sharing


If you receive an unsolicited request for information, take extra time to evaluate the message. Scammers will often ask you to share more information than necessary, such as login information, bank details and addresses with them. They may also request payment via bank transfer or virtual currency.


Donate directly through non-profit organizations


Some scams take advantage of goodwill, requesting donations for COVID‑19 relief efforts or impersonating non-profit organizations. To be more confident your money will reach a non-profit organization, you can donate directly through their website ─ rather than clicking a link sent to you.


Double check links and email addresses before clicking


Fake links often imitate established websites by adding extra words or letters. If it says something like "click here," hover over the link or long press the text to check the URL for mistakes ─ being careful not to click it. Misspelled words or random letters and numbers in the URL or email address may also indicate a scam.


Search to see if it's been reported


If somebody has sent you a fraudulent message, it's likely they've sent it to other people as well. Copy and paste the email address, phone number, or most suspicious portion of the message into a search engine to check if it's been reported by others.


Add an extra layer of security to your account


For extra protection online, add two-factor authentication -- also known as 2-step verification -- to your accounts. This provides another layer of security by requiring two steps to gain access to your account: for example, something you know (your password) and something you physically have on hand (like your phone or a security key).


Report it


If you see something suspicious, report it to g.co/ReportPhishing or g.co/ReportMalware

Interesting facts of Bhavin Turakhia in 2020, Founder and CEO of Directi

BI India BureauMar 4, 2020, 16:50 IST

Bhavin Turakhia, the serial entrepreneur who found five companies like Reseller Club, Logic Boxes, Big Rock 20 years ago in 1994 but big rock in 2014.

Bhavin Turakhia, the serial entrepreneur who found five companies is a role model for a number of aspiring entrepreneurs. Starting his first company as early as 17 years, he rose up to create a list of firms driven by his belief, "It is our moral obligation to make an impact that is proportionate to our potential". Through a series of technology-led innovations, he strove through his ventures to solve problems and maximizing efficiency, which he kept as the watchwords behind every achievement.

Some interesting facts about Bhavin Turakhia that will inspire you.

He founded three companies at the age of 17

Bhavin Turakhia co-founded Resellerclub, Logicboxes and BigRock at the age of 17. In 2014, all these companies were sold in a deal worth $160 million. At present, he heads Radix, a leader in registry for top-rated extensions, Flock, a portfolio of productivity apps, and Zeta, a platform for digital payments.

Education and childhood

He attended the Arya Vidya Mandir school in Bandra , Mumbai and later, enrolled himself DG Ruparel College only to drop the course midway. In an interview with the BBC , he said he discontinued the course since he learnt most of the syllabus himself. He then moved to complete his bachelor's degree in commerce from Sydenham College of Commerce and Economics.

As a child, he dedicated a lot of time to coding. Their father bought the first coding book at the age of eight. " I would spend all of my short breaks, lunch breaks, several hours after school every day. My dad would buy me tons of programming books, and I would go through them one after another. I went through more than 25, 30 different books to learn programming and GW-BASIC, Visual Basic, and CC++ on MS-DOS back in the day.

Turakhia is worth $1.3 bilion

In 2016, Forbes ranked him along with his brother Divyank Turakhia as the 95th richest person in India credited with a net worth of US$ 1.3 billion. The World Economic Forum honored him as Young Global leader in 2011.

According to Forbes, the Turakhia brothers were millionaires even before they were 20 years old. Their networth rose to $300 million in their mid-20s. They are among the youngest billionaires in the country.

His mantra for success

The billionaire entrepreneur says his mantra for success was a quote which his father often used to say, 'You can achieve anything you set your mind to'. Turakhia says this mantra ringed in his ears all the time steering his journey towards success.

'Family matters a lot'

Turakhia has a strong opinion that family plays a big role in shaping every individual. Talking about his father, he says, "Everything I am today is in many ways thanks to my father. He used to work from nine to nine everyday just to make ends meet. But this is what he used to say. Sometimes we'd be like, 'Dad, we know'. But the number of times it was repeated, you really internalize it."

Future plans to venture US with ZETA, Flock, Radix Registry and other companies

The four-year old Zeta, started with Indian banks, and subsequently branched out to countries like Brazil, the Philippines, and Vietnam. But now Turakhia has plans to take Zeta to US and other European markets like Italy and Spain.

Covid-19: At Rs 43.5 trn by March, Indian households' debt at record high

Indian households had debts worth nearly Rs 43.5 trillion at the end of March this year, up from Rs 6.6 trillion at the end of March 2008 and Rs 19.3 trillion five years ago at the end of FY15
Krishna Kant  |  Mumbai
Last Updated at April 18, 2020 09:53 IST

Indian households have entered the Covid-19 lockdown with a record level of debt and poor income growth, making it tough for many families to absorb income losses owing to the pandemic.

Indian households had debts worth nearly Rs 43.5 trillion at the end of March this year, up from Rs 6.6 trillion at the end of March 2008 and Rs 19.3 trillion five years ago at the end of FY15.

Outstanding retail loans are now equivalent to 21.3 per cent of India's GDP in FY20, up from 13.2 per cent at the end of March 2008 and 15.5 per cent at the end of March 2015.

In the last five years, household income as indicated by the salary and wages bill of the country's top listed companies has expanded at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3 per cent against 17.7 per cent CAGR growth in borrowing by households or individuals. This is based on the data by the Reserve Bank of India and the balance sheet of top listed non-bank retail lenders (see the adjoining chart).

Some non-bank lenders in our sample include Housing Development and Finance Corporation, Bajaj Finance, Shriram Transport Finance, Indiabulls Housing, L&T Finance, and M&M Finance.

"In the past five-six years, compensation growth has been in low single digits, and, adjusted for retail inflation of 4-5 per cent, workers have barely managed to maintain their purchasing power and there has little or no income growth in real terms," said Dhananjay Sinha, head, equity, and head strategist, Systematix Group.



Many households and individuals, however, have maintained their consumption levels either by cutting back on savings, or resorting to borrowing, or both. Household savings as a proportion of GDP declined to 18.2 per cent in FY19, the latest year for which data is available, from 19.6 per cent in FY15 and 22.4 per cent in FY08.

In contrast, the 2008 Lehman crisis was preceded by a period of strong double-digit growth in households' income, providing many families with a large nest egg to absorb the loss incurred.

For example, the combined salary and wage bill of a sample of 977 listed companies that are part of the BSE 500, BSE Mid-Cap, and BSE Small Cap indices grew at a CAGR of 24.5 per cent between FY04 and FY08.

The last few years have been dismal for households in terms of income growth and the resulting cash flows. In the last five years, household income as indicated by the salary and wage bill of the country's top listed companies has expanded at a CAGR of 4.3 per cent, which is about the same rate as consumer inflation.

The divergence between income and consumption shows in the private consumption component of India's gross domestic product (GDP). In the past five years, private final consumption expenditure (PFCE) -- the consumption component of GDP -- grew at a CAGR of 16 per cent, nearly four times the underlying growth in salaries and wages.

The result has been a steady rise in household debt-to-income ratio, whichever way one looks at it. For example, outstanding personal loans were equivalent to 21.3 per cent of India's GDP in FY20, up from 13.2 per cent at the end of March 2008.

A boom in retail credit means that interest on personal loans, including home and auto loans, now accounts for a greater proportion of a household's income and cash flows than in 2008. This, analysts say, may force many individuals to reshuffle their household budget after the pandemic.

"Expect a sharp dip in consumption and down trading by consumers and rise in savings (as a proportion of their income) as individuals try to adjust their finances to the new economic reality," said Sinha.
Others say the crisis cannot be compared with the one of 2008, which originated in the US and affected largely financial services and foreign trade.

"Currently nearly 75 per cent of segments in manufacturing and services are shut. In 2008, on the other hand, the crisis led to a dip in India's merchandise exports while banks and financial services companies were not able to mobilise resources from overseas investors. The rest of the economy continued to operate as usual even at the height of the crisis," said G Chokkalingam, chief executive officer and founder, Equinomics Research & Advisory Services.

L&T gets orders worth Rs 27,000 cr from domestic clients in April so far

Analysts see these order wins as spill-overs from the quarter ended March, 2020
Amritha Pillay  |  Mumbai
Last Updated at April 18, 2020 02:10 IST

Engineering conglomerate Larsen & Toubro (L&T) on Friday announced a significant order win for its building and factory business. With this order, the company has announced order wins worth up to Rs 27,000 crore so far in April.

Most of these orders were from clients in the domestic market. In total, they are valued between Rs 14,500 crore and Rs 27,000 crore. The company does not disclose exact order values, but shares a range.

Analysts see these wins as a spillage from the March quarter. However, the firm stands to gain owing to a large order book as well as exposure to diverse markets.

On Friday, L&T announced order win in the range of Rs 1,000-2,500 crore. The works related to the setting up of a cement plant, a real estate project and smart data centres. All orders were from the domestic market.

This is the fourth order win announced in April. The earlier ones included building a regional rapid transit system in Uttar Pradesh, water management orders in Karnataka, power transmission orders from its overseas markets, information technology infrastructure project from the Indian Army and a distillation unit project for Indian Oil. These orders were valued between Rs 13,500 crore and Rs 24,500 crore.



For the quarter ended December 2019, L&T's total order inflow was Rs 41,579 crore, and the company's outstanding order book was Rs 3.06 trillion. In January, the company maintained its full-year guidance of 10-12 per cent growth in order inflow for the full year. The guidance back then did not reflect the disruptions caused by the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) and the subsequent nationwide lockdown in March.

Baid expects L&T's Rs 3.06 trillion order book to put it on a strong footing compared to peers. "Most capital goods firms have order backlog for the next six-nine months, after which there will be concerns on revenue visibility. With Rs 3 trillion worth of order book, L&T is an outlier, which should keep it occupied for at least 18-20 months if not more," she said.

Analysts at ICICI Securities also expected companies like L&T to consolidate the engineering, procurement and construction markets in terms of tender wins. "Companies with strong balance sheets and minimum leverage will stand to gain given the tight liquidity scenario. Some smaller and marginal players will suffer due to leverage leading to reduction in competitive intensity in some tenders and gradual consolidation by larger players," analysts with the brokerage wrote in a note.

The Most Affordable iPhone Features A13 Bionic, the Fastest Chip in a Smartphone, and the Best Single-Camera System in an iPhone




Cupertino, California -- Apple today announced the second-generation iPhone SE, a powerful new iPhone featuring a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, paired with Touch ID for industry-leading security. iPhone SE comes in a compact design, reinvented from the inside out, and is the most affordable iPhone. The new iPhone SE is powered by the Apple-designed A13 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone, to handle the most demanding tasks. iPhone SE also features the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone, which unlocks the benefits of computational photography including Portrait mode, and is designed to withstand the elements with dust and water resistance.



iPhone SE comes in three beautiful colors -- black, white and (PRODUCT)RED -- and will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, April 17, starting at just $399 (US).

"The first iPhone SE was a hit with many customers who loved its unique combination of small size, high-end performance and affordable price; the new second-generation iPhone SE builds on that great idea and improves on it in every way -- including our best-ever single-camera system for great photos and videos -- while still being very affordable," said Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. "iPhone SE features the industry-leading performance of A13 Bionic that enables great battery life, takes stunning Portrait mode and Smart HDR photos, shoots amazing videos with stereo audio, is great for games and super fast web surfing, and is built with the same industry-leading security features our customers expect. We can't wait to get iPhone SE into customers' hands."



Popular Design with a 4.7-inch Display

iPhone SE features an aerospace-grade aluminum and durable glass design with an all-black front, and is available in black, white and (PRODUCT)RED. The rear glass finish includes a centered Apple logo and is made using a seven-layer color process for precise hue and opacity, delivering rich depth of color with a color-matched aluminum band. It is water- and dust-resistant with an IP67 rating for water resistance up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.1

The 4.7-inch Retina HD display with True Tone adjusts the white balance to match the ambient light for a more natural, paper-like viewing experience. The vibrant wide color gamut Retina HD display offers incredible color accuracy, and supports Dolby Vision and HDR10 playback. iPhone SE uses Haptic Touch for Quick Actions -- such as animating Live Photos, previewing messages, rearranging apps and more -- as well as contextual menus.

iPhone SE also features the familiar Home button designed with sapphire crystal to be durable and to protect the sensor, and a steel ring to detect a user's fingerprint for Touch ID. Using Touch ID is an easy, private and secure alternative to entering a passcode to unlock iPhone, fill in passwords using iCloud Keychain, log in to apps, authorize App Store purchases, and make Apple Pay transactions.




A13 Bionic -- The Fastest Chip in a Smartphone
Introduced with iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, A13 Bionic is the fastest chip ever in a smartphone and provides unparalleled performance for every task iPhone SE handles. Perfect for photography, gaming and augmented reality experiences, A13 Bionic makes every action feel fluid.
A13 Bionic was built with a focus on machine learning, with a dedicated 8-core Neural Engine capable of 5 trillion operations per second, two Machine Learning Accelerators on the CPU and a new Machine Learning Controller to balance performance and efficiency.

Dual SIM with eSIM provides the flexibility for users to have two separate phone numbers on a single device while traveling abroad or for use as a business line.4


New Camera Experience Powered by A13 Bionic
iPhone SE features the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone with a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture Wide camera, and uses the image signal processor and Neural Engine of A13 Bionic to unlock even more benefits of computational photography, including Portrait mode, all six Portrait Lighting effects and Depth Control.
