चीन की आर्थिक वृद्धि दर 14 साल के न्यूनतम स्तर पर
• दुनिया की दूसरी बड़ी अर्थव्यवस्था किस तरह हिल चुकी है, इसका पता इसकी आर्थिक वृद्धि दर के आंकड़ों से लग रहा है। चीन की अर्थव्यवस्था की वृद्धि दर 2013 में 7.7 प्रतिशत रही जो 14 साल में सबसे कम है।
• आधिकारिक आंकड़ों में सोमवार को कहा गया कि चीन की सकल घरेलू उत्पाद की वृद्धि दर 2013 में 7.7 प्रतिशत रही जो 1999 से अब तक का न्यूनतम स्तर है। हालांकि पिछले वित्त वर्ष की यह वृद्धि दर सरकार के 7.5 प्रतिशत के अनुमान से बेहतर रही जो 2012 में इसी स्तर पर थी।
• नैशनल ब्यूरो ऑफ स्टैटिस्टिक्स (एनबीएस) ने कहा कि चीन का सकल घरेलू उत्पाद 56,880 अरब युआन (9,310 अरब डॉलर) के स्तर पर रहा। चौथी तिमाही में भी आर्थिक वृद्धि दर 7.7 प्रतिशत रही।
वैश्विक नेटवर्क स्टार अलायंस में शामिल हो सकती है एयर इंडिया
• लगभग सात साल के इंतजार के बाद एयर इंडिया को अंतत: इन गर्मियों में एयरलाइंस के वैश्विक नेटवर्क स्टार अलायंस में शामिल होने की उम्मीद है।
• स्टार अलायंस के मुख्य कार्यकारी अधिकारी (सीईओ) मार्क एफ श्वाब ने संवाददाताओं से कहा, ‘कोई तारीख बताए बिना मैं कह सकता हूं कि एयर इंडिया को अलायंस में शामिल करने का काम गर्मियों में पूरा हो जाएगा। एयर इंडिया को दिसंबर, 2007 में अलायंस के भविष्य के सदस्य के रूप में स्वीकार किया गया था। लेकिन जुलाई, 2011 में एकीकरण की प्रक्रिया रोक दी गई, क्योंकि एयर इंडिया को पूर्ववर्ती इंडियन एयरलाइंस के साथ विलय को पूरा करना था।
पीसीबी चयनसमिति के अध्यक्ष बने इलियास
• पाकिस्तान क्रिकेट बोर्ड ने पूर्व टेस्ट क्रिकेटर मोहम्मद इलियास को अपनी चयनसमिति का नया अध्यक्ष नियुक्त किया है।
• विश्वस्त सूत्रों ने पीटीआई को बताया कि बोर्ड ने इलियास को नियुक्ति पत्र सौंपा है जो इससे पहले भी चयनसमिति में रह चुके हैं और 2011 में मुख्य चयनकर्ता थे। उन्होंने कहा, ‘सरकारी बोर्ड ने भी इलियास की नियुक्ति को मंजूरी दे दी है। बोर्ड की शनिवार को लाहौर में बैठक हुई थी।’
इंडियन पावर सेक्टर में नार्वे करेगा करोड़ों का निवेश, लगाएगा पावर प्लांट
• नार्वे की सरकार ने हिमाचल प्रदेश में अपना निवेश बढ़ाने की उत्सुकता का इजहार किया है। उसने खासतौर पर पनबिजली क्षेत्र में निवेश बढ़ाने की उत्सुकता का इजहार किया है क्योंकि राज्य में इसके लिए अपार संभावना है।
एलआईसी ने बायोकॉन में हिस्सेदारी घटाकर 3 फीसदी की
• सार्वजनिक क्षेत्र की बीमा कंपनी जीवन बीमा निगम (एलआईसी) ने बायोकॉन में अपनी हिस्सेदारी घटाकर 3 प्रतिशत के आसपास कर ली है। एलआईसी ने इस जैव प्रौद्यागिकी क्षेत्र की कंपनी में 2 प्रतिशत से अधिक हिस्सेदारी 162 करोड़ रुपये में बेची है।
• कंपनी ने बंबई शेयर बाजार को भेजी सूचना में कहा है कि देश की सबसे बड़ी बीमा कंपनी ने खुले बाजार के लेन-देन के जरिये बायोकॉन के 40,31,002 शेयर या 2.01 प्रतिशत हिस्सेदारी 162.58 करोड़ रुपये में बेची है। इस हिस्सेदारी बिक्री के बाद बायोकॉन में एलआईसी की हिस्सेदारी 5.02 प्रतिशत से घटकर 3.01 प्रतिशत पर आ गई।
इंग्लैंड को हराकर ऑस्ट्रेलिया ने जीती वनडे सीरीज
• मैन आफ द मैच डेविड वार्नर और शान मार्श के अर्धशतकों से आस्ट्रेलिया ने रविवार को सिडनी में इंग्लैंड पर सात विकेट से हराया.
• ऑस्ट्रेलिया ने इस जीत से पांच एक दिवसीय मैचों की श्रृंखला में 3-0 से अजेय बढ़त बना ली. नाथन कोल्टर नील ने करियर का सर्वश्रेष्ठ प्रदर्शन करते हुए 47 रन देकर तीन विकेट चटकाये, जिससे मेजबान टीम ने सिडनी क्रिकेट मैदान पर टास जीतकर पहले बल्लेबाजी करने उतरी इंग्लैंड को नौ विकेट पर 243 रन ही बनाने दिये और फिर 10 ओवर रहते 244 रन बनाकर जीत दर्ज की.
बायोकॉन ने लॉन्च की ब्रेस्ट कैंसर की सस्ती दवा
• जानी-मानी बायोटेक्नोलॉजी कंपनी बायोकॉन ने कहा है कि वह भारत में अगले महीने से एंटी-ब्रेस्ट कैंसर ड्रग कैनमैब बेचना शुरू करेगी। यह स्विट्जरलैंड की कंपनी रोश की दवा हरसेप्टिन का बायोसिमिलर वर्जन है।
• बायोकॉन ने यह दवा अमेरिका की मायलन के साथ मिलकर तैयार की थी। उसे पिछले साल भारतीय ड्रग रेगुलेटर की मंजूरी मिली थी।
• बायोकॉन की दवा की एक वायल 19,500 रुपये की होगी। हरसेप्टिन का दाम 75,000 रुपये है।
• बायोकॉन की सीएमडी किरण मजूमदार शॉ ने एक स्टेटमेंट में कहा कि भारत में कैनमैब की लॉन्चिंग हमारे बायोसिमिलर प्रोग्राम के लिए मील का पत्थर है और इससे हाई-क्वॉलिटी वर्ल्ड क्लास प्रॉडक्ट को अफोर्डेबल प्राइस में पेश करने की हमारी क्षमता का पता भी चलता है।
• माना जाता है कि रोश की हरसेप्टिन एचईआर 2 कैंसर सेल को टार्गेट करने के मामले में सबसे ज्यादा प्रभावी है। एचईआर 2 सेल के कारण ही ब्रेस्ट कैंसर होता है।

6 awesome things you can do with your Gmail ID

Everyone has a Google account, and most of us tend to use it only for emails. A few others might probably be active on Google+ and YouTube… perhaps, even use the Google Drive service. But did you know that this single ID could be put to other amazing uses? Ashutosh Desai tells you about…

Turn Google Drive into your jukebox
Google Drive is a great cloud service to store all your documents, presentations and spreadsheets. But I bet you didn’t know that you can also use it – in conjunction with a few third-party tools – to create your own virtual jukebox that lets you stream your songs to wherever you are as long as you have an internet connection.

For PCs…

To listen to the music you’ve uploaded to Drive, visit http://www.drivetunes.org (preferably using the Chrome browser) and sign in with your Google account.

Allow Drivetunes to access your Google Drive by clicking ‘Accept’. The website automatically detects and lists all MP3 and M4A files, letting you play your tunes from any web-enabled computer.

For smartphones…

You can install apps like CloudBeats Lite or GDrive (for iOS) or CloudAround (for Android devices).

Make your own maps
So you’ve moved to a new home, or you’re probably hosting your birthday party at this new pub. One of the problems you’re faced with is giving detailed directions to get to the venue. Guess what? You can use Google Maps. The service lets you create custom maps, add waypoint symbols and colours; you can also annotate it with text; add snapshots for visual aids, and more…

* Sign in to Google Maps, click My Places > Create Map.

* Something called Maps Engine Lite will open in a new tab.

You can now use this interface to plot your route. There are four tools – to select items, add markers, draw lines, and add directions. The elements you add are represented as layers (just like in photo-editing software). This makes it easier to mask out certain annotations or routes. The map editor also includes a handy undo-redo option.

Once you are done, click the Share button to send it via e-mail, Google+, Facebook or Twitter.

Print from anywhere
The wonders of technology. Do you know you can now use the Chrome browser and your Google account to send a printout to your home printer from anywhere in the world?

To set up on your home computer…

* First, make sure your printer is on.
* In Chrome browser, click the ‘Menu’ button and select ‘Settings’.
* Click the ‘Show Advanced Settings’ link.
* Scroll down to the ‘Google Cloud Print’ section and sign in to enable the service.
* Select your printer in the list, click ‘Add Printers’, and you’re ready to go.

To print from a remote computer…
* Ensure that your printer and the PC that it is connected to are switched on.
* Sign in with your Google account in Chrome.
* Click on the menu button, and select the ‘Print’ option.
* In the ‘Print’ panel that appears under ‘Destination’, click on ‘Change’ to select your remote printer. Hit Print.

It should be noted that you can only print the contents of your browser window using this method. If you want to print a .doc file, for instance, you will need to open it in a cloud service like Google Drive.

Android and iOS apps like Google Print and PrintCentral Pro can also be used to send prints using Google’s cloud print service.

Manage your phone contacts
Changing your smartphone can be a chore, especially when you have to copy all your contacts from one handset to the other. Hah! You wouldn’t have to go through this pain; not if you had stored all your contacts on your Gmail account…

* In your inbox, click the drop-down labelled Gmail (top-left corner under ‘Google’ ).
* Select Contacts, and in a one-time effort, manually update phone numbers, email IDs, et al – for all the people in your address book. Alternatively, if you have an existing backup in the CSV or vCard format, click on More > Import.
* Now, whenever you switch handsets – whether Android, BlackBerry, iOS or Windows Phone – all you need to do is add this Google account and set it to sync Contacts.
* Also, whenever you add a new number on your smartphone, make sure it is synced to this Google account.

Run your own show on YouTube
So you’ve always believed you have what it takes to be a video jockey or a TV show host. Sadly, you’ve never had the opportunity to show off your skills. Not true. With your Google account, a webcam, and a good microphone, you can start your own channel on YouTube. Who knows, you might just.

To create a video…
Log in to YouTube with your Google ID; click on your account name at the top right-hand corner, and click My Channels to create one.

Click the Upload button at the top of the page. Then, in the Privacy drop-down list, select Private (you can change this later from Video Manager).

Now click the Record button under Webcam capture to start rolling. Once done, stop the recording and click Play to preview.

Click Publish to finalise your recording or Start Over to do a retake.

How to check what’s occupying your storage space on Google

Every Google user gets 15GB of storage space. This is shared between Gmail, Google+ and Google Drive. To find out how much is being consumed by each service…

* Sign in to your Gmail account and in your inbox, scroll down to the last email.
* Below, on the left-hand side, you will see how much space is being used. For example, ‘5.79GB (38%) of 15GB used’. Click on the ‘Manage’ link under this line.
* Google will display your usage in a pie chart with a break up of how much storage each of the three services are using. catch the eye of some big-time producer.

Never run out of space for your photos and videos
Regardless of how much storage space we have at our disposal, the many photographs and videos we shoot tend to occupy huge chunks of memory on our devices. Well, did you know, you could use your Google+ account to back these up? Install the Google+ app for your Android or iOS smartphone.

* After installation, in the app click on the ‘Settings’ icon and enable ‘Auto Backup’.
* Make sure you set the auto-backup to initiate only over a Wi-Fi connection (using your mobile network will incur extra charges).
* Additionally, to backup the pictures and videos on your PC, use the latest version of Picasa (v3.9).

Having all of your stuff backed up to your Google+ account means you can visit those memories any time you choose, even after you have deleted them from your phone or computer. And don’t worry; all your stuff is marked private by default. You can, however, choose to share whatever you want with friends from within the app itself.
