It seems they've wrapped their offline tool in a service manager which is the aforementioned Non-Sucking Service Manager.
The purpose of this service manager seems to be to restart the GST offline tool should it crash.
Let me guess what happened. Infosys hired the cheapest person they could find to write a program to parse some GST receipts and convert to some XML format. Cheapest person writes code in which every error condition is ignored so the offline tool crashes on 90% of real-world data. Users complain on Twitter that the GST offline tool constantly crashes. Infosys hires the second cheapest person they could find to fix the crash. What's cheaper than rewriting the code? Slap a bandaid on it that will just restart it when it crashes.
Since we're on the topic, zomato suffered a data Breach in May 2017. I didn't get to know this until recently, don't remember this being in the news either. Passwords were compromised, I suggest y'all Check it too.
1) Unless you're in a very dark location, I don't think it will be visible with your naked eyes. Telescope or binoculars may work, but I couldn't see the comet from my small-ass telescope either. In my opinion, your best bet would be to use a DSLR or phone camera(more about that in a minute)
2) First, we need to find the comet. Right now it's visible after about 8pm in the North West direction just above the horizon. In order to find it properly, download any star chart app that shows you the comet. I'm using SkySafari for the time being.
3) Ideally you should use a DSLR to capture the comet. But in case you don't have one, you can try shooting it with your phone camera as long as your phone has a manual/pro mode.
4) Put your phone/camera on a tripod or in an inclined position(hand held shots won't work), go to manual mode and change the following settings:
a) Set the ISO to 1600 or 3200
b) Set the focus to infinity
c) Set the shutter duration to 20s
Take a few shots and zoom in. If the conditions are right and you were pointing the camera in the right area, you should see the comet with its wispy tail.
You can take multiple exposures to stack them but be warned, it literally took me hours to get them stacked since most Stacking software require lots of stars in the sky to work and tend to ignore the comets.
Once it starts dimming, Comet Neowise will only return after 7000 years so unless you can develop an immortality potion or make some horcruxes, I'd say you should try and capture/view it if possible.
If you have any questions or doubts, feel free to ask me and I'll try to help you out as much as possible :)
PS- If anyone knows a better way to specifically stack comets, please help me out too.
She knows she can't get any money from you. She has already tried. She just hopes of finding you in fearful state some day, so that she can get some money. Or maybe, thinking that you will just pay her some money to het rid of her pestering.

Once the training is complete, you need to activate detection and keep the phone in your pocket. If you take the phone from pocket, alarm does not buzz, if someone else takes it out. The alarm buzzes.

If they were using a VPN, then their IP addresses got rerouted through a specific server, whose IP can be traced. However I don't think VPN providers will give out any information regarding that especially ones like Proton, Mullvad etc.
If they were using Tor to reroute their traffic then they can't be traced easily given in Tor the internet traffic constantly passes through multiple servers(or "nodes"), which can be used to anonymize internet traffic and is especially useful in regions with internet censorship.
Also, I think that those accounts are fake or randomly generated using bots, so it will be pretty tricky to trace the exact person behind it
You'd need to provide more details. What were they were wearing? Last visual/phone contact? If they had smartphones try to get/guess their passwords from relatives and look at their Location History. If there was an iPhone amongst them find my iphone. If you can trace their IMEI numbers maybe it could help local police to track their last locations.
Its not even something that requires skills. You can easily buy USB Killer online here. All you need is to be an asshole and plug it in a PC.

Shivaji is revered not because that he was a King or ruler, but because of his strength of character and the courage and bravery that he showed in bringing down a mighty Empire with few resources.
"Jantecha Raja" is how he is referred to in Marathi which literally means the People's King.
The son of a Jagirdar (land tax collector) he stood up for the people who were brutally oppressed via unfair taxes and other means by the Adil Shahi Sultanate, not to mention he brought down a mighty empire with few resources (he built an army with a handful of Mawlas (maratha soldiers) and showed great heroism and bravery the stories of which are still sung as poems).
He waived unjust taxes imposed by the Adil Shah Sultanate
Treated women with respect and refused to accept women as war trophies, a common practice of the time.
Africans and Muslims rose to great heights in his empire especially the Navy. He built a powerful Navy which was able to drive back colonizers.
Did not care for the caste system, many people from lower castes fought in his army.
All quite progressive values of his time, it is quite ironic that modern politics has idolized him to promote their own brand of religious politics.
"Who Was Shivaji" by Govind Pansare is a great read, would highly recommend it for anyone interested.

Acryllic paint used. Acryllic colors work best on fabric. This converse sneaker uses canvas fabric.
Steps for the artists over here :D
*Shoes must be brand new or crisp clean before painting*
1) Remove shoe laces. Tape the unwanted areas like the sole border on bottom and the rubber toe part with masking tape to prevent accidental paint drips.
[Step 2 is required if your base color of shoe is non white. If it's complete white then you can start painting directly. ]
2) First apply a base coat of white two times over the complete area you are planning to paint.
3) After base coat start painting stuff you want like colors and stuff.
4)Paint the leaked edges, borders or mistakes you made while painting by covering them with black acryllic paint again. (black used here since the color of sneaker is black so it hides after drying)
5)Once you're happy with the paint, coat it with a sealent spray 2-3 times to prevent the paint form getting exposed to dirt and stuff. Make sure the sealent has matte finish or you shoes will turn out glossy lol. I used this spray sealent
EDIT : Added instruction for white sneakers @ step 2
EDIT : Added sealent spray link.
That is the argument that James Crabtree makes in his fine new book, The Billionaire Raj (https://www.amazon.com/Billionaire-Raj-Journey-Through-Indias/dp/1524760064). As James admits, the analogy is imperfect. For instance, the economic model of India has a far greater role for the state that the U.S. did at the time. America's problems grew out of a laissez-faire model run amok. But, generally speaking, I think the analogy is useful. What India is experiencing now, and what America experienced then, is what happens when countries are experiencing rapid economic take-off but their institutions of governance lag behind.

paid reviews on amazon india is a real thing. there are dedicated facebook groups catering to this business.
people spend a lot of time getting into top 500/100/50/10 reviewers because the better your rank, the more offers you get. one of the hundreds of mails i have gotten over the last year or so: https://imgur.com/cpGVNSz
amazon india does not care. i have reported at least 50 such mails from sellers asking me to post reviews for them (i am in top 500 and i have now stopped posting reviews because of this nonsense).
in simple terms...
if an obscure product has mostly positive reviews... do not trust them.
do not blindly trust reviews from top x/xx/xxx reviewers. sure not all of them are posting reviews for incentives... but a lot of them are.
amazon usa has an official policy that makes it mandatory for incentivized reviews to have a disclaimer. they even have an official program for reviewers who want to get free stuff in return of proper reviews. amazon india on the other hand is like indian government... they don't care. just like Advertising Standards Council of India does not care about paid social media content without disclosure.

This Wikileaks cable is where "Modi is incorruptible" is mentioned:

Radius- Find Places Around Me - is an app that aggregates information, ratings, and reviews from sources like Google and sorts it on the basis of Distance/ Ratings as per your choice. And... You define the max distance you want the places to be at, which is the Radius( eureka moment)
Hope that it proves helpful to some of you when in a new locality in finding things like Cafes, Restaurants, ATMs etc.
Tell me how I can improve on this project. And also, I'm a little confused as to how I should progress with spreading the app. Please advice guys.
First make really sure that they hate you as you think they do. The age you're in usually makes us think that way.
If above is affirmative, then your case should be something like this:
/ It'll take some time.
/ Get anything kind of job, Good or bad, hard or boring, doesn't matter. Make sure you're feeding yourself. Read this book, please - Click Here to read the book
/ Never hesitate to raise your voice against abuse. You're not disrespecting anyone or anything. It's basic defense mechanism. What a culture it it can't protect ya. Not every elder is worth the kindness.
/ Build a strong body. It makes shit ton of difference. My own father and uncle used to get into physical fight when I was skinny and a kid but then as I became little strong the control was mine.
/ Study hard. As I can see you have internet access and can read and write English, study something online like basic app development.
/ NEVER. ABUSE. THE ALCOHOLIC. It only makes things worse.
/ Put a fake smile on your face when inside the house.
/ Find a library and read books. They will be your friends 'till you find a real one.
Best of luck.

Hey man, listen – It's ok to not be perfect. It's ok to be confused, aimless and always under a feeling that you are losing grip. What you really need to do is first stop blaming yourself for all of it.
What you have written is kind of anxiety I have faced too at some point of life. I wasn't a great student or good with people but things worked out just fine with the time. Try to slow down for a while and allow yourself some time to breathe. And eventually, doors and silver linings will show up.
PM if you need to talk more. Or distract yourself with some Tom & Jerry classics.. But whatever you do, do not think about giving up on fight.
One of the important feature of Julia is that it combines the easy syntax of python with the running speed of C.
(If you didn't understand the above statement) : Python is easy to learn and program, but python itself is written in C, which means your python statements are processed in C and then to binary and run, hence python is an interpreter (reads and runs commands one by one). On the other hand, C is as close to machine as you can get. C being a compiler processes the entire code and translates to binary, but this speed comes with certain caveats. Since the code is translated in one go, you need to clearly specify which variables hold which type of data (hence you need to declare variables as int, float etc). This is not an issue in languages like python because it is essentially a C wrapper and hence stuff happens under the hood.
I too don't know how Julia does it, so please refrain from asking me.

Cuisine would be the easiest way to get to know the NE Culture i suppose.
There are quite a few North Eastern cuisine based restaurants in Delhi and Bangalore. Noodles and momos are NOT north eastern cuisine :P. You could make it a point to visit some of these restaurants.
eg: Naga restaurant in Delhi http://www.zomato.com/ncr/restaurants/south-delhi/green-park/nagalands-kitchen-4096.
Zingron (naga restaurant, Blore) http://www.zomato.com/bangalore/restaurants/south/koramangala/zingron-restaurant-51763/menu
NE Cuisine can be pungent , spicy, usually non-veg (pork and beef are consumed in large quantities) so for some it is an acquired taste. And no dog meat is not a staple food in the North East. It isn't hard to find but it has a reputation as a "manly" food and very very few women will actually eat dog meat.
Movies? the only decent movies from the North East come from either Manipur or Assam and I am sorry to say I too am unfamiliar with their movies! (I am from Mizoram, another state in the NE).
Travelling is easier to do , the NE is well linked by air, road and rail. Visit Meghalaya and Assam if you want to do the more comfortable, easier to access touristy thing. Visit Arunachal Pradesh, Mizoram,Nagaland,Manipur if you want to do that "off the beaten track" type of tourism.
Various NE based student organisations in the big metros regularly have cultural programs . If you're really interested in attending some of them I could get yuo in touch with someone who could get you more information about these events. If you're in Bangalore you can send me a message.

Tips to save yourself from surveillance in general:
Don't use mainstream social media platforms. Don't use whatsapp or similar proprietary messaging platforms.
Encrypt your mails with PGP.
If you can't live without using a messenger, Use https://delta.chat is an email based instant messenger with encryption baked in by default. Its basically an email client but with a messenger like user interface. So, anyone in this world with an email address can be reached.

Use VPN. It's not optional anymore. ProtonVPN free is pretty good for Indian speeds anyway. VPNhub is a safe and fastest way to use pornhub on Jio as well. Also use untracked DNS servers.
Use Startpage instead of Google (duckduckgo results can suck at times), bing for porn, quit Facebook/Instagram.
Give WhatsApp access only to contacts and revoke all permissions. Delete all messages every week or so. Stop WhatsApp from saving backup to unencrypted Google Drive.
Tweak your google activity settings and disable pretty much everything, search history, activity, location, etc tracking are all activated by default unless you disable them.
Create a new email ID with protonmail for personal mail. Use gmail for junk stuff and protonmail for important stuff. Consider paying as the free version is quite limited. That's the only way they make money. They don't sell your data like Google does.
Use brave browser/firefox on mobile. Stop using Chrome. It can't be trusted. Brave is easy to use as it's exactly like Chrome but configured quite well for privacy.
Review all your app permissions. They are recording a lot more than you would believe and most of it can be disabled. Install LineageOS if using Xiaomi phone.
The point is.. You can still choose to keep your privacy in your own hands. It's quite a work but once things are in place, it's great. Leverage cryptography to your advantage. Visit which has a lot more information.

Aaaand we've touched 200! And it took about 3 hours only! Thanks a lot everyone!
Now that we're in the queue, let's hope it's deployed soon enough. TunnelBear is a great service. The closest tunnel for Indians is in Japan. It's still fast. I can stream 360p video over it on YouTube on a 512kbps connection without much problem. So I'd suggest you start using it for daily life. And once the Indian server is available, we can enjoy even faster speed. Thanks again.
Few use cases where you should use a VPN -
And also, spread the word. Introduce your friends and family to VPN. If possible, set it up for them. Let's all use Internet securely. Cheers!
Edit: If you prefer not to trust a 3rd party VPN provider, you can always setup your own VPN server. I just followed [this] and setup one in a VPS in Singapore. Works.
Call airtel and threaten them to leave. Do this first !! and also call your friends and ask them to do the same , if they are on airtel.
For now , use ~~hotshield VPN~~ (typo) Hotspot Shield VPN to browse and download torrent file. After downloading the torrent file , you can continue as usual.
Or buy VPN package for a year , many airtel users are doing it (tech savvy).
If you cant do this , again call them , cancel the broadband , state the reason for cancellation as " Censorship/Block" , before leaving send an email to your nodal officer ( - Took some time to find this link ).
I've been there 3 times. Never saw much during the day. Lucky you. I've dreamt of seeing tigers at Corbett since I was 10.
shameless plug incoming, not for me though
This book by Jim Corbett about the various man-eaters he killed in 10 villages got me hooked on tigers and Kumaon history and culture. It was part of my Class 6 curriculum. I want as many people as possible to experience it. Enjoy.
Okay and I could find you a book on Islamic science.
You're using an example of authors writing books specifically discussing development of science in Europe (and mine for MENA). My point was that 1) the circumstances leading to their "Golden Age" are not present now (world was drastically different in 1950 let alone 1200 AD) and 2) it doesn't matter if Newton or Al-Jayyani discovered law of gravitation, it's still the same thing either way.
You could say you want to see a resurgence in scientific discovery in ME.
So there is this strategy game called Plague where you have to spread a virus/bacteria throughout the planet and kill everybody. The noob tip is always start the infection from India or China (because high population density and pathetic health care). This map looks so creepily similar to that scenario.
You guys want cringe? Read the responses here:
>I happen to work at a startup based in Navi Mumbai, where people address their colleagues by their CounterStrike player names, where people take funny photos of each other and use it as memes on WhatsApp groups, where people prefer to hang out with their colleagues on weekends despite spending a good part of the week with them. I work at Crowdfire, where we work hard, play hard, and 'Fuck it. Ship it. Move on to the next.'
> Did I mention that we get weekends off?
> It feels like Family
> Monthly meetings might seem like a pain in the ass right? But over here, monthly meetings are more about celebrating birthdays, work anniversaries and welcoming new joinees by asking some quirky questions (Join us and you’ll see). And what happens after after these meetings? Yep. Cake cuttings, snacks and more treats which brings all of CouponDunia together.
It goes from bad to worse, with different startups trying to out-cringe each other.
🌹🇮🇳🙏 A Proud Moment For All Indians 🌹🇮🇳🙏
A poor villager's son from Uttar Pradesh who passed from IIT with a gold medal has created an app called Signal.
The App has been awarded as the Best New App of 2021 by NASA 🚀 and UNESCO 🌍 because it is the first ever app which has used code from Sanskrit to create the app.
This App is better than WhatsApp and has been proudly created by an Indian 🇮🇳
Request all Indians to download this app which is a huge boost to Atmanirbhar Bharat, and make India shine in front of the world.
Also WhatsApp will be shut down in six months because their servers are not able to handle the traffic of 💐Good Morning💐 Messages sent in India. Download Signal to keep sending Good Morning Messages to your near and dear ones.
Forward this message to 10 contacts and win ₹500 Voucher from Flipkart.
🇮🇳 Jai Hind 🇮🇳

Blur, my preference generates unlimited masked (forwarding emails you can use for account creation and contact forms. Their browser extension allows you to create email addresses without leaving the webpage you're using it on.
More details here
Blur is another “freemium” service. The paid version offers additional features and Blur is one of at least two privacy services offered by a company called Abine.
The benefit of masked email addresses is that it makes it difficult for your accounts to be linked to each other, either by data miners or hackers, should multiple services you use be breached. (It's a matter of time.) It also protects you from people who might learn of your email address some way; your email address is often your username and, therefore, half of the information needed to access one of your accounts.
I use Pocket to save long articles when on my computer, and read them on my phone whenever I'm bored and have nothing to do.
I've been in the top 1% of Pocket users for the past 3 years :P
I landed a remote opportunity a few years ago. I landed it because I released a VERY popular plugin for wordpress. It was a massive plugin with 150k+ downloads. I had been doing that for 3 years by then. Not professionally but part time. I landed an interview with Automattic (WordPress' parent company).
You don't always need to have that. You just have to demonstrate very strong written communication skills. You have to over communicate. And clearly. Without spelling and grammar mistakes. You'd be rejected even before you know it if you don't have these.
Added is the emphasis on being reachable when remote. The company sees if you are reachable when you need them. I had a sort of a trial by fire period where I actually worked on wordpress.com to add a feature. They paid me for it. You have to monitor communication channels and make yourself available to be reached. Over communicate. Commits should say everything about why you did what you did - even if the commits messages have to be longer and take more time than the change itself.
I was very proud to have cleared the interview but....The CEO behaved like a dick and a bit racist to me so I declined. But that's another story.
You should try using SMS Organizer by Microsoft instead of the stock messaging app. It automatically classifies messages into different categories(promotional, personal etc). Might be useful for you.
Jio mags. Damn.... The variety of magazines on that is awesome. It's more readable on tablet though than mobile. It would shut shops of the likes of magzter.
App Name: jio mags
Description: read magazines on your handheld device
App Store Link (if possible): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jio.media.jiomags
Type (Paid/Free) free with jio subscription
Android / iOS: android
L&T might not even have to develop these technologies in house. There are open source solutions. Plus I believe both Amazon and Google have projects providing object recognition on their cloud platform. Plus they can always license it from a small company which specializes in these tech.
They do not seem to offer facial recognition directly though probably because of legal reasons.
Complete BS. That's USD 750,000 /year - there's just no way they're paying that much to a 21 year old.
The old CFO, peter Kien who offered him the job in the story (besides which CFOs don't hire engineers) earns about $500,000/year (+stock http://www.geekwire.com/2013/microsoft-paying-cfo-amy-hood/).
If it's true at all, maybe a decimal place error - $75,000 is more realistic. But I think based on his 'anti-hacking' system, it's entirely made up.
>The beta version of the app which is for now meant for laptops and desktops was launched on Monday and has so far 238 downloads.
238.. Wow! So many! Also reinventing the wheel
Wont stop 8 yo's from bypassing it though. And if you want to give your 8yo a bit of a challenge, use https://www.opendns.com/setupguide/#familyshield
I have been working on this android app for a while which shows ratings of a movie in a floating window when you're browsing Netflix, Amazon PrimeVideo so that you don't have to go to google and look for the ratings. Once you enable the app, it just works out of the box.
The app uses Android's accessibility settings to read titles of the movies, tv show in the app and uses OMDb api to fetch the ratings.
As a secondary functionality, I have been adding more stuff lately - create your own movie collection, search for movies, etc.
The app is completely free, contains no ads and does not send your data to cloud (even for analytics). You can download it from Playstore - Flutter - Instant movie ratings.
Flutter (yes, the name is ambiguous and not to be confused with Google's new platform for app development) is completely open source and written in Kotlin. Here's the link to Github.

I used to be a very avid reader and stopped for like two years. I finished Albert Camus' The Outsider and I was honestly shaking by the time I got done. I have never read something so fucking powerful.
And it's only 100 pages.
a good comb maybe
a handmade comb to gently caress those tresses into position.
a gentle waxxy hair cream.
a gentle moisturiser.
a nice shaving foam.
and a sharp razor.
Your problem IMO is discipline.
Watch this video! Elliott Hulse - Why Passion is bullshit
You need to have perseverance in anything that you do.
Think and Grow Rich is an amazing book.
Way of the Superior Man is an equally brilliant book.
If you'd applied the principles in those books, you would be out of the rut that you're in. Read them again!
I have started using an app called Forest. Its really helping me to focus on work/life and not using mobile at that time.

FM India, all major radio stations, from all major cities, in all major languages.
Ogyoutube, to play youtube videos in background or in floating window without rooting your device.
This is incorrect. While athletes do have lower heart rates ranging from 40-60 most regular people have a resting heart rate 60+. That’s perfectly normal.
Dettol bar soap and H&S hair wash.
It’s pretty much known liquid body washes are money grabs and are not really better than bar soaps.
