The rear design remains quite subtle with long wraparound tail lamps

The front face is dominated by the big black grille which smartly integrates daytime running lamps.


Powering the Yaris is a 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine which will produce around 110PS of peak power. There will be no diesel option available at the time of launch.

Sony offers $300 for water proof handsets

Thanks to the recent preliminary settlement over misleading commercials, you might be owed up to $300 from the Japanese electronics company.

Sony Xperia phones and tablets aren’t the most common in the US, but if you are one of the very few people who own a Sony-made device in the US, you might be eligible for a $300 reimbursement. If you remember, Sony used to advertise some of its products as “waterproof.” Phones like the Xperia Z1 have a rating of IP58, which means they can be “immersed in 1.5 meters of freshwater for up to 30 minutes.” They’re not technically “waterproof” but water-resistant instead. The problem arose when Sony’s commercials claimed that they were and showed the devices being used to take photos underwater.

Naturally, users who thought their devices were waterproof were taken aback when their phones stopped working when after some underwater photoshoot, and some of them subsequently filed a class action suit against Sony for its misleading advertisement. After over …

Dusk of the Engineering College - Fate comes with shutdown of 50%

50% engineering colleges will shut down.

Parents need to change their approach towards education.

Fact based article, please share with each student and parent.

USA produces around 1 lakh engineers per year for a $ 16 Trillion economy. India produces 15 lakhs engineers for a $ 2 Trillion economy.

If there are so many engineers, there must be enough demand to pull them in. But it is not there. The earlier mass recruiting sector was manufacturing. It used to recruit from the core branches like civil, electrical and mechanical. But, manufacturing is stagnant at just 17% of the GDP. So the core branch placements have become difficult.

The new mass recruiter is the IT sector. It grew from scratch to almost 5% of the GDP in 25 years. Employed millions of engineers across the country.

Now, IT is also saturating.

If you look at the sectoral composition of Indian economy, most of the sector do not need engineers. Tourism is 10% of the GDP, does not require engineers. Financial sector, trade, hotels a…

Sarahah - Anonymous Feedback App - Making Headlines

Every now and again, an app comes around that sparks huge amounts of controversy. Sarahah is one of those apps, and it’s got parents in the UK and US on their toes merely a month after it made its way to their teenager’s smartphones.

But what is so disconcerting about Sarahah? Well, let us try and explain.

What is Sarahah?

Sarahah is an anonymous messaging service. Once a user registers, they can give the link to their friends or post it publicly online and anyone with that link can send them anonymous messages. The recipient has no way of knowing who posted the message or responding to it in any way.

Sarahah used to only exist as be a website created by the Saudi Arabian developer Zain al-Abidin Tawfiq. It had a very simple purpose — it allowed employees to post anonymous feedback to their employers. It gave a voice to those who had something to say, but never spoke up for fears that they could be fired.

Later on, Tawfiq thought that this concept could apply on a personal level too, with …

Strong Heat waves in Indian Desert by 2100

By the end of the century, climate change could trigger heatwaves that exceed the threshold of “human survivability” in India, with the densely populated Gangetic basin at the greatest risk, finds a new study published in the journal Science Advances.The combination of high temperature and humidity —which characterises heatwaves — increases the risk of human illness and mortality: when the combined measure of temperature and humidity (or ‘wet-bulb temperature’) is high, the human body’s ability to cool itself diminishes, impairing physical and cognitive function.And when ambient wet-bulb temperature exceeds 35 degrees Celsius, considered an “upper limit” for human survivability, it could, even in just a few hours, “result in death even for the fittest of humans under shaded, well-ventilated conditions,” the paper explains.Most of South Asia is projected to see maximum daily wet-bulb temperatures approach 35 degrees Celsius by 2100 under RCP8.5 (a high greenhouse gas concentration scen…
