The After Hours party after the first day of Google I/O was packed full of augmented reality, food, fun, dancing, Billy Idol and… robots.Lots and lots of robots.It was hard not to miss the robots, considering that the main bar on the third floor of Moscone West had three robots mixing cocktails. The wait for a robot-mixed drink was considerable, as a human controller told each bot what concoction to make. Google may have come up with the self-driving car, but these robot bartenders are pretty awesome too.Check out the photos from the Google I/O After Hours party below.Dancing on dotsLast year, Sergey Brin himself taught us how to take a selfie with Google Glass.Robot drummerI swear I have seen this robot before.

BJP govt. has pushed farmers into acute distress: Hooda

first_imgSetting the tone of the campaign ahead of the State Assembly polls, due in the later half of 2019, former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Sunday accused the Manohar Lal Khattar government of pushing the farmers into acute distress and misleading them.Mr. Hooda was addressing a gathering in Fatehabad’s Tohana as he launched the fourth phase of his ‘Jan Kranti Yatra’.“The BJP government claims to have implemented the recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission and is patting itself on the back after it raised the MSP of paddy to ₹1,750 per quintal and cotton to ₹5,150 per quintal, claiming that farmers are being given 50% profits but that’s far from truth,” said Mr. Hooda.He added that the revised MSP is based only on part of the input costs, not comprehensive costs as suggested by the Swaminathan Commission and added that the Congress would provide 50% profits to farmers on C2 costs.Mr. Hooda alleged that the State government has also failed to deliver on its promises made to the youth of the state. “Before the elections, the BJP had promised to give jobs to youth or give them an unemployment allowance of ₹9,000 per month, they have neither provided the jobs nor the unemployment allowance,” said Mr. Hooda.Power tariffsMr. Hooda said that after returning to power following the elections, the Congress government would provide relief to all sections of the society from rising power tariffs in the State. “The Congress government will provide a 50% reduction in the power tariffs after the elections,” he said, adding that the BJP government is solely responsible for the poor condition of power supply in the State.Mr. Hooda accused the government of failing to control the rise of the drugs menace in Haryana. “The State government has failed to maintain law and order. It was a matter of shame for all of us that Haryana has become the number one State in the country for crime against women. The situation has become so bad that the police have stopped registering cases and the horrible case in Panchkula is the latest example,” he said.Mr. Hooda took on the Indian National Lok Dal, accusing it for being hand-in-glove with the BJP government. “INLD’s agitation against the BJP is a sham and it would not make any impact, even if they continued to agitate for 50 years.”last_img read more

Narada tapes case: CBI court rejects SMH Mirza’s bail plea

first_imgA special CBI court on Wednesday rejected the bail plea of suspended IPS officer SMH Mirza, who was arrested by the central agency for corruption in connection with the Narada tapes case, extending his judicial remand till November 26. Mr. Mirza’s counsel pleaded before the Kolkata court that his client is in no manner connected with the scandal but has been in custody for 49 days. He prayed to the court to grant Mr. Mirza bail as there’s been no progress in the case since his arrest. CBI lawyers pleaded that Mr. Mirza’s appeal be rejected as his custodial remand was needed further for interrogation.Mr. Mirza was the Burdwan Superintendent of Police when he was allegedly caught in a sting operation carried out by Mathew Samuel, the editor of Narada news portal, in 2014. He was arrested on September 26 this year and produced before the court, which had initially remanded him to CBI custody for five days. The court had remanded Mr. Mirza to judicial custody for 14 days on September 30 and had extended it twice. The Narada tapes surfaced ahead of the 2016 West Bengal Assembly polls. In the tapes, persons resembling senior Trinamool Congress leaders and Mr. Mirza were seen accepting money from representatives of a fictitious company in return for favours. The Calcutta High Court had ordered a CBI probe into the Narada sting operation case on a public interest litigation, which sought an impartial investigation into the footage.last_img read more
