One in two Indian employees are considering changing their jobs, according to a survey by human resource consulting firm Mercer.The survey of 2,000 workers in India, found that 54% are seriously considering leaving the organization they presently work for, twice as many as was reported in a similar survey in 2004.Around two-third of workers under the age of 24 are seriously considering leaving their current job, the survey found.“As the economy improves further and new job opportunities emerge, employers risk losing valued talent and also face productivity and morale issues among workers who continue to be with the organization,” Mercer Consulting India Managing Director Nishchae Suri said.

Salman Khan’s Bharat is among the most anticipated films of the year. The film will chronicle Salman’s journey from the age of 18 to 70 and the actor will be seen sporting five different looks in the film.Though the actor has done many roles that required physical transformation in the past (Sultan, anyone?), the actor says that portraying Bharat on the big screen was a bit more difficult for him.Talking to Hindustan Times, the actor said, “Right now, I am shooting for the third installment of the Dabangg franchise, which is a prequel. Then, Bharat is releasing, which is a journey from the age of nine to 27 to 35 to 45 to 70. So I am playing all those age groups in Bharat.”He added, “You saw that in Sultan (2016), too. The amount of work that went into it is 10 times more than what I put in any other film. Because you need to lose weight to look a certain way and then you need to put on that weight. And all this always has to be done in a short span of time. Earlier, it was easier, but now, of course it’s tougher.”Talking about how he chooses his films, he said, “It’s always the script. It has always been that way. When the audience walks out of the theatre, they should feel that they want a boyfriend like my character, or a son like that or a husband. Every actor should see the film in totality from the audience’s perspective.”advertisementBharat is all set to hit the theatres on Eid.Also See | Bharat trailer out.

SFU research says Northern Gateway underestimates risk of oil spills VANCOUVER – A study from Simon Fraser University says Northern Gateway Pipelines is drastically underestimating the likelihood of oil spills from the project — a claim immediately labelled by the company as inflated and inaccurate.The study by Tom Gunton, director of the resource and environmental planning program, said the risk analysis submitted by the company to a federal review panel has many deficiencies, including using data that under reports tanker incidents.“Enbridge makes no attempt to adjust for this underreporting and consequently underestimates the probability of tanker spills,” Gunton said in a statement with the release of the report.Gunton’s analysis found the likelihood of a tanker spill ranges from one every 23 years to one every 196 years — higher than the one every 250 years estimated by Enbridge (TSX:ENB).It said a significant oil spill at the tanker terminal that would be built in Kitimat, B.C., as part of the project is possible once every 15 to 41 years, compared to the company estimate of once every 62 years.And there are likely to be 15 to 16 pipeline spills a year on land, compared to Enbridge’s estimate of one every two years, said the study released Thursday.John Carruthers, president of Northern Gateway Pipelines, said the report is misleading.He pointed out that Gunton appeared as a witness at federal review panel hearings for Coastal First Nations, a group that opposes the pipeline, but did not submit the report for review by the panel.“All of Northern Gateway’s conclusions have been subject to peer review, information requests and questioning by interveners and the Joint Review Panel,” Carruthers said in an email.The study was released days before the questioning phase of the hearings comes to an end and too late to be submitted, he said.“Given the timing, we can only conclude this study was purposely kept off the evidence record to avoid being tested in the hearing process,” he said.The spill numbers are inflated, Carruthers said, and the study does not reflect the new technology proposed for Northern Gateway.“Their study results are not borne out by real world tanker spill statistics. Based on Gunton’s estimates we should expect 21 to 77 large spills every year worldwide while in reality after 2000 it has been below 3, and in 2012 was zero,” Carruthers said.The report by Gunton, a former deputy minister of environment for a provincial NDP government, and Sean Broadbent, acknowledged that estimating risk is challenging because of the uncertainties involved, however, it concluded that Northern Gateway’s assessment is not accurate.“The risk assessment in this report also concludes that the (Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline) has a very high likelihood of a spill that may have significant adverse environmental effects,” it said.The review panel weighing the pipeline is expected to wrap up the questioning phase of hearings in Prince Rupert this weekend, and final arguments will begin in Terrace in June.

But the agency said the company didn’t let customers know what the data-use threshold was for triggering the lower speed.The FCC said T-Mobile started doing a better job with disclosures in June 2015. The carrier now says in small print on its website that slower speeds may result for customers using more than 26 gigabytes a month if the network is congested.Asked for comment, T-Mobile referred to CEO John Legere’s tweet that it was a “good settlement with the FCC” and that the company “believes more info is best for customers.”Spokeswoman Stacey DiNuzzo said the changes that were made in June of last year were deemed sufficient and no more are necessary to comply with the settlement’s conditions. FCC spokesman Will Wiquist declined to comment on where T-Mobile stands.This isn’t the first time the agency has gone after the limits of unlimited plans. It fined AT&T $100 million last year for misleading customers on the mechanics of its unlimited plans — the carrier had been slowing speeds significantly after users hit a certain data threshold, even if there was no bottleneck. AT&T has contested the fine.Today, AT&T says on its website (also in small print) that it slows down heavy users’ data speeds after 22 GB are used in a month if there is network congestion.In its settlement with the FCC, T-Mobile will pay a $7.5 million penalty while $35.5 million will go to customers in the form of discounts or data upgrades. And $5 million will go toward expanding access to the internet for poorer children. The Bellevue, Washington, company will provide free internet service on devices for children in low-income school districts. The children can take the devices home to help them do their homework.

In his address to the 68th high-level debate, Minister Samuel Santos Lopez said that Nicaragua has made strides on overcoming poverty, hunger and inequality, while strengthening its economic and commercial relations with the international community and its organizations. Among the highpoints, Mr. Santos noted that the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) recognized the country’s “remarkable and exceptional progress” to ensure food security and reduce the prevalence of undernourishment. UN Women places Nicaragua among the first countries in the world with the highest percentage of women in government positions. Women occupy more than half of the positions in the Executive and Judiciary Branches, as well as in Municipal Courts. Some 42 per cent of female deputies are in the Judiciary Branch.Nicaragua has also prioritized enrolment of children in school, reducing maternal mortality rates, and combating HIV/AIDS.Turning to the wider Latin American and Caribbean region, the Nicaraguan official reiterated his country’s commitment to the struggle of other people for their full independence and sovereignty.Mr. Santos called for the immediate and unconditional terminations of the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States against Cuba.In addition, Mr. Santos reiterated support for Puerto Rico in their struggle for self-determination, independence and social justice.Later in the day, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with Mr. Santo and the two discussed several current issues of mutual interest such as the post-2015 development agenda and the recent Security Council resolution on Syria.They also discussed developments pertaining to the implementation of the International Court of Justice’s judgment in the case concerning Territorial and Maritime Dispute (Nicaragua v. Colombia).
Two good friends from Chennai, leading their respective sides and grappling to get a spot in the IPL playoffs. And they are in charge of talented, yet faltering teams. R Ashwin’s KXIP will take on Dinesh Karthik’s KKR and the winner will keep their chances of making it to the playoffs alive, while the loser will be on the brink of elimination. It promises to be an absolute scorcher in Mohali and both the leaders need to step up and lead their side with precision.Predicted XI of both the sides: Shubman Gill and Andre RussellKolkata Knight Riders InstagramKings XI Punjab: KL Rahul, Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Pooran, David Miller, Mandeep Singh, Ravichandran Ashwin(c), Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Mujeeb Ur RahmanKolkata Knight Riders: Chris Lynn, Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik(w/c), Rinku Singh, Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Sandeep Warrier, Harry GurneyFantasy tips and suggestions: Chris Gayle and KL RahulIANSWicket-keeper: It is a crunch match and Dinesh Karthik has to step up. He could walk in at number 4 and get the nod ahead of Nicholas Pooran who could struggle against the KKR spinners. Karthik has also found form in the recent games which augurs well for his side.Batsmen: Chris Lynn and Shubman Gill have been going great guns for KKR at the top of the order and the management should stick with young Gill as an opener. On a true surface in Mohali, he can be a real game-changer, a factor that helps him get the nod along with Lynn to stay in the side.For KXIP, it is the Gayle-KL combination which has to get the job done for the side. Both the batsmen have looked in good form but need to make a match-winning contribution, especially in this match.All-rounders: Who else but Andre Russell. After plenty of comments, he was finally promoted to number 3 in the last game against Mumbai Indians and made an immediate impact. He should be persisted with in the top 4. Also, his temperament and skills with the ball will come in handy for KKR.Spinners: R Ashwin believes he is right up there with the best spinners this season and he has the numbers to make this judgement. The skipper has led by example this year and has been a consistent performer in the middle overs.Also, Mujeeb ur Rahman could play this match, which makes him a pick too as he could be a trump card against the marauding Andre Russell in the middle overs.And then there is the proven performer in Sunil Narine, who has to get the job done against Chris Gayle and KL Rahul early in the piece to set the ball rolling for KKR.Seamers: Mohali has proved to be an absolute belter for batting but Mohammed Shami has been good on the surface with his pace and accuracy. He is a definite pick.Also, KKR should persist with Harry Gurney as his variations with the ball can come in handy against the fluent KXIP stroke-makers.
