Krushna Abhishek shares that her name had to be changed because of Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan; here’s why Wed, 18 May 2022 01:30:00 +0000 Krushna Abhishek, whose real name is Abhishek Sharma, recently shared how he was named because of Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan and also changed his name because of him.

In Maniesh Paul’s podcast, Krushna made an interesting revelation about his name. He shared: “Only Maniesh calls me Krushna. My name is pronounced like Krishna. Astrologer Sanjay Jumani had my name changed. Kashmera insisted. He told me to use ‘U’ instead of ‘I ‘. He told me I would become popular. Call it a coincidence, I did Krushna and 10 days later I signed Nach Baliye and became famous.

Krushna added, “My name is Abhishek Sharma. My mother was a big fan of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan. When I was born, she named me after her son – Abhishek. I was named Abhishek because of Abhishek. And then my name had to be removed and changed to Krushna, also because of Abhishek. When I became an actor, I was told that there was already an actor by the name of Abhishek. that time websites were getting popular so when Abhishek’s name was typed Abhishek Bachchan’s photos were shown first I was told then I thought they were fine sure of the Bachchan family. They told me not to keep my name Abhishek. That’s how I became Krushna Abhishek.

Krushna Abhishek has made a name for herself in the entertainment industry. He is now known for playing the role of a female character – Sapna in The Kapil Sharma Show. Krushna is also known to impersonate several Bollywood celebrities.

‘Baie-Jolie sur mer’ is out, the Nordic community submits a new name Tue, 17 May 2022 18:30:01 +0000

After an unfavorable reception, a merged community decided to change its proposed new name.

The new entity, made up of Beresford, Nigadoo, Petit-Rocher, Pointe-Verte and surrounding local service districts, will be called Belle-Baie, if the name is approved by the province.

The new new name was chosen after residents spoke out against the original name chosen by the transition committee, Baie-Jolie sur mer, calling it redundant and too long.

Maxime Lejeune, mayor of Pointe-Verte, said the committee had made a mistake in choosing the first name, and that he is satisfied with the one he submitted for the province’s approval.

“We went back to the drawing board,” Lejeune said. “Ninety percent of all comments made were genuinely respectful.”

The name will be used for administrative purposes by the new city council and in tourist advertisements.

But according to the rules of the province, the current addresses will not be changed.

Baie-Belle was one of the leading candidates among the 70 suggestions received by the committee, Lejeune said.

Sharing the proposed name helped the steering committee

Not everyone shares their proposed names, for better or for worse.

Lejeune said the name came out publicly because of a “slip”. The committee was not supposed to reveal his proposed name before the deadline to submit it to the province on May 16, he said. Last week, the name of Balie-Jolie sur mer came out and the response guided the committee to modify the submission before it was too late.

Lejeune said it was a silver lining.

“The slip-up happened, and that name came out and we realized we made a mistake,” he said. “It shows the people of the new entity that we have listened to them and taken their feedback into account for a new name.”

Other communities, like Woodstock, which merges with two surrounding local service districts and parts of four others, keep the cards close to the chest. Mayor Arthur Slipp said he would not reveal the name because the province has not yet approved or rejected it.

Vicky Lutes, spokeswoman for the Department of Local Government and Local Governance Reform, said the province would be “better placed” to share a list of proposed new names in the coming days.

The choice of the new name is a step in the province-mandated merger of municipalities and LSDs, with the goal of reducing municipal entities from 340 to less than 100.

]]> WhatsApp Pay will display your legal name to mitigate UPI fraud Mon, 16 May 2022 11:10:52 +0000 WhatsApp informs users that it will now display their legal name for every transaction they make on WhatsApp Pay. The name displayed will be the same as your bank account.

In a posted FAQ, WhatsApp said the requirement is defined by NPCI and designed to mitigate fraud in the UPI payment system. “WhatsApp uses the phone number associated with your account to identify your bank account through UPI. The name associated with your bank account is the name that will be shared,” the company said in an FAQ.

The notification that is pushed by the Meta-owned chat platform contains a link to an FAQ page that explains the legal name requirement.

It should be noted that WhatsApp users have the choice to choose any name with the 25 character limit and use it on the app. Several users even use emojis as names.

It comes as WhatsApp received clearance from the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to expand its user base on WhatsApp Pay to 100 million from 40 million. This gave the messaging platform a certain threshold to start building products and marketing the service to consumers.

Following the NPCI clearance, WhatsApp will be able to add 60 million users to its UPI service and take on giant payment rivals such as Walmart-backed PhonePe and Google Pay, which drive the majority of transactions that occur on UPI. However, the NPCI ensured that WhatsApp’s ability to bend the rules of the game is limited given that the messaging app has over 500 million users and allow it to offer UPI service to all users. both could have an impact on competition.

Meanwhile, the company also announced offering three cashbacks of Rs 11 each for the first three payments made to different contacts using UPI on its app.

Website launched in name of Mamata Banerjee to tackle BJP digitally – The New Indian Express Mon, 16 May 2022 02:16:00 +0000

Express press service

NEW DELHI: Digital mega plan launched by Trinamool Congress to counter BJP
and propel party matriarch Mamata Banerjee as the sought-after opponent against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the
2024 elections.

Launching a dedicated website and Twitter account in Didi’s name, TMC MP Derek O’Brien said the platforms will be used to break fake news and “empty rhetoric” pushed by the BJP. The platforms titled “India Wants Mamata Di” went live on Saturday.

“We have made it clear that India wants Mamata Banerjee to lead the next federal government. There is no doubt that only she can challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s political hegemony in 2024,” a senior TMC official said.

With that, the TMC sounded the poll trumpet projecting Mamata Banerjee as the face of Prime Minister for 2024, albeit numerically. The website describes Mamata Banerjee as the “tigress of Bengal and India”, with many firsts to her credit.

Launching a pan-India digital campaign projecting Mamata Banerjee as the next prime minister, the TMC said it wants every Indian to benefit from good governance through its pro-people policies aimed at holistic development – making her India’s first-ever Bengali Prime Minister in 2024. “The projection of TMC supremo as the face of the Prime Minister on all digital platforms will gradually intensify until the next Lok Sabha elections,” a source said. of the TMC.

2021 was the year of buy-sell

In March 2021, Automotive Newssensing a desire from our audience, decided to change and expand our coverage of new vehicle dealership mergers and acquisitions, colloquially known as buy-sell.

For Automotive News, that meant more editorial resources devoted to the effort. Namely myself, as a journalist, and my colleague Melissa Burden, as a hybrid journalist-editor.

For our readers, this meant greater coverage of buy-sell trades. Much more.

Be certain, Automotive News had covered buy-sell in the past, usually when one of the publicly traded dealer groups or a well-known private group or dealer decided to buy a store.

But it was different.

We started writing individual stories about the transactions as they happened. It didn’t matter where in the country a deal took place or how many rooftops were involved.

We collected transaction data (more on that in a minute) submitted by dealers, buy-sell brokers and others, and we searched for details of other transactions found in regulatory documents. company news, local news stories and social media posts.

Barely a month after deciding to focus more on buy-sell, one of the biggest dealership acquisitions in history happened. Lithia Motors purchased the Suburban Collection, one of the nation’s largest private dealership groups.

It was a harbinger for the year.

In May, it was clear that the pace of transactions was accelerating. To address this, we started compiling recap stories with details on several deals, which kept coming in.

Megadeals also continued to sprout. September was a whirlwind with Group 1 Automotive, Sonic Automotive and Asbury Automotive Group each announcing their own plans to acquire some of the largest private dealer groups in the United States.

As transactions came in, our data continued to grow.

Which brings us to this week’s issue.

You’ll find several data-rich stories that you won’t find anywhere else. From the number of transactions to the number of franchises involved, there is no shortage of buy-sell data.

Want to know how many dealerships were sold in your state last year? We have you. Curious to see how many Subaru franchises have changed hands in 2021? We have that too. (35, by the way.)

In all, Automotive News can now tell in more detail the story of last year’s surge in the buy-sell market, a phenomenon that continues this year.

We also have the data for that.

Andrew Symonds: Former Australian all-rounder dies aged 46 | Cricket News Sun, 15 May 2022 08:48:45 +0000

Symonds played 26 Tests for Australia between 2004 and 2008, as well as 198 ODIs.

Following news of the death of former Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds at the age of 46, Fox Sports News’ Mark Cunningham said the cricketer community was in shock.

Her family released a statement confirming the tragic news and asked for confidentiality.

Symonds becomes the third Australian cricketing legend to die this year, following Rod Marsh and Shane Warne, who both suffered suspected heart attacks.

Taylor: tragic day for cricket

Australian cricketing legends Mark Taylor and Adam Gilchrist led the tributes to Symonds, with Taylor calling it “another tragic day for cricket”.

“I actually can’t believe it, to be honest,” the former Cricket Australia (CA) batsman and manager told the The wide world of sports from Nine Network on Sunday.

Speaking about Symonds’ legacy as a cricketer, Taylor said he was an “artist with the bat” and a “big guy” on the pitch.

“He just wanted to entertain…He wanted to go out and have fun…That’s how he lived his life,” he added.

Affectionately known as ‘Roy’, Symonds played 26 Tests and 212 limited Internationals for his country and was most notable for his ferocious strikes in the middle order.

Gilchrist reacted with the same shock and sadness, tweeting a number of crying and heartbreaking emojis followed by “it really hurts”. In a later tweet, he wrote, “Think of your most loyal, funniest, most loving friend who would do anything for you. It’s Roy.”

Former England Test captain Michael Vaughan also paid tribute, simply tweeting: “Simmo.. This doesn’t seem real… #RIP” along with a love heart emoji.

In a statement, AC chairman Lachlan Henderson said Australian cricket had “lost another of its best”. He said: “Andrew was a generational talent who was instrumental in Australia’s success at World Cups and as part of Queensland’s rich cricketing history.

“He was a cult figure to many who was cherished by his fans and friends. On behalf of Australian cricket, our deepest condolences go out to Andrew’s family, team-mates and friends.”

CA chief executive Nick Hockley called Symonds “a prodigious talent from an early age in Queensland with his ability to hit the ball clean, shrewd throwing and brilliant field play”.

“Symonds had an incredible cricketing intellect”

Matt Cunningham, Fox Sports News correspondent

“Andrew Symonds is remembered as a true character in Australian cricket. He loved to play the game, but also enjoyed doing other things like fishing, hunting and hiking. He was a real asset to the dressing room.

“He entered the one day international team in 1998, he was born in England [Birmingham]but Australia convinced him to play for his adopted country.

“He had kind of a patchy career until 2003, coming into the World Cup in South Africa – in fact there were question marks over his position in that Australian team – but he certainly answered to all the criticism there might have been with a fabulous unbeaten 143 in their first clash against Pakistan which put them on the path to being the unbeaten world champions.

Symonds celebrates a stunning centenary against England in the Boxing Day Test at the MCG in 2006

“He made his Test debut a year later and then two years later in 2006 he had a memorable first Test century at the MCG in the Boxing Day Test against England.

“But his career has not been without controversy either. In Darwin in 2008 during a series against Bangladesh, Symonds skipped training under Michael Clarke to go fishing instead. walked out of the team for a while and it was probably the beginning of the end of his international career.

“His wife Laura described him as a really laid back character, but also quite shy.

“She said he didn’t go to college and he always thought people thought he wasn’t that bright. It was unfair because he really had an incredible intellect of cricket – what we saw on the cover of Fox here in Australia. He clearly knew the game inside out.”
