PepsiCo bottler Varun Beverages IPO to open on October 26

first_imgPepsiCo Inc’s bottler Varun Beverages on Wednesday announced that its Initial Public Offering (IPO) valued at Rs 1,000 crore will open on October 26 and close on October 28. The price band has been set at Rs 440-445 per share.Proceeds from the IPO will be used to repay part of the Rs 1,700 crore debt, which was taken to boost its expansion plans over the last few years. Delhi-based businessman Ravi Jaipuria and his son Varun Jaipuria, who own the flagship firm, will each sell five million shares in the public offering, while the company will sell 15 million new shares.Kotak Mahindra Capital Co Ltd, Axis Capital Ltd, CLSA India Pvt. Ltd. and YES Securities (India) have been hired to manage the IPO.Varun Beverages accounts for about 45 percent of PepsiCo’s volumes in India. The firm is the only bottler and distributor of PepsiCo in the North and East India, with the exception of Jammu and Kashmir, Odisha, Bihar and Jharkhand regions, Jaipuria told the media.Last month, Varun Beverages Ltd won the stock market regulator’s approval for its Rs 1,000 crore worth Initial Public Offering. The company secured clearance from the Securities Exchange Board of India (Sebi) on August 31.In October last year, the company had raised Rs 600 crore from Aion Investments, a Singapore-based company. The company had then said it would utilise the funds for expanding its business and “refinancing debt.”Varun Beverages is PepsiCo’s product distributor in 17 states and two Union Territories across India. It is also PepsiCo’s second-largest bottler in South Asia and has, apart from India, operations in Nepal and Sri Lanka. It also sells PepsiCo’s products in parts of Africa.last_img read more

Police chief sees no scope for militancy in Rohingya camps

first_imgThe inspector general of police (IGP) AKM Shahidul Hoque said on Sunday there is no room for militant activities inside the Rohingya camps in disguise of relief.The police chief came up with remarks while addressing the briefing on law and order situation at the police headquarter with the chief of law enforcing agencies and the leaders of Puja and Ashura celebration committees, according to UNB.AKM Shahidul Hoque said “Our regular supervision and special monitoring is going on to check any militant activities inside the Rohinga camp. So it is not possible to conduct militancy activities.”He said “Police and their agents are kept alert to thwart any such attempt. No aid materials will be distributed without goes unchecked. The locals and Rohingyas are being made aware of it too for safety.””Some ill motivated efforts can be conducted to propagate militancy inside the helpless Rohinga. We will rule out all possibilities by our regular monitoring. We won’t allow Bangladesh’ soil to be used as a breeding ground for militants,” AKM Shahidul Hoque assured.IGP also said “Police have arrested over 200 Rohingya refugees from all across the country who will not be detained. Rather we will return them to their camps. We will conduct our drive everywhere to restrict their movement outside the camp for their better treatment.””If they spread in the country, they will become illegal immigrants. We will return them to their camp without arresting them on the humanitarian perspective. Registration will ensure their relief, accommodation, medicine and proper assistance,” he said.The country’s top policeman included that security measures will be enhanced to ensure a smooth and peaceful celebration of Durga Puja and Muharram as usual.last_img read more

News • Photos of the Week Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,APEX, N.C. (RNS) — On a Tuesday evening under the roof of a public picnic shelter, a group of women ages 20 to 55 groaned through a series of high-intensity exercises in the 88-degree heat and humidity.Cheered on by their leader, who yelled, “you’re getting stronger,” and, “you’re going to feel like Popeye,” the women press on with  jumping jacks, burpee box jumps and a set of other cardio exercises with inventive names: “dying cockroach,” “ski moguls,” and “sparky crabs.”But the intensity of the boot-camp-like drill ended on a quieter, more reflective note 45-minutes later as the women came into a circle, their faces still flush from working out, to close with a prayer: “Lord, thank you for the time we’ve been able to be together and just exercise,” said Julie Swift, one of the women. “Please bless all these ladies and sustain them through their week. In Jesus’ name we pray.”After a unison “amen,” they roll up their mats, give each other a hug and head home — until the next workout.A host of modern exercise groups have sprung up in the last decade that aim to create fitter bodies, minds and hearts: CrossFit, SoulCycle, Pure Barre, Orangetheory. Stephanie Walton demonstrates a plank exercise for Females in Action workout participants in Apex, N.C. RNS photo by Yonat ShimronAll promise to empower, strengthen and transform while creating a sense of community.The latest is Females in Action, a Southern-style fitness program designed to make women stronger and develop friendships. The FiA brand is the female equivalent to F3  —  its larger male counterpart, which aims to build men up through fitness, fellowship and faith.But unlike the for-profit studios that cater to urban millennials willing and able to pay $40 a class, Females in Action (like F3) is free. Workout sessions are peer-led. They most often take place outdoors, in public parks or school fields. And they typically end with a spiritual high five.“We are focused on fitness, but it goes beyond that,” explained Catherine Butler, who leads one of three Charlotte, North Carolina, FiA groups. “We are a community of women that lifts each other up.”Started six years ago, FiA has grown to 53 regional workout groups spread across multiple states but heavily concentrated in North and South Carolina. Many are located in the suburbs and appeal to churchgoing working women whose husbands oftentimes participate in the male counterpart. FiA estimates 5,700 women work out at its exercise sessions, and many say the biggest draw is the camaraderie and support the women offer one another.“There’s nothing ever negative here,” said Caroline Uenking, 20, who accompanied her mother, Heather, to a recent workout. “It’s all positive.”Caroline, who has some problems with her calves, and Heather, who has a hard time touching her toes, are never singled out, they said. Instead, they’re  encouraged to do what they can, altering a particular exercise to meet their abilities.Like the F3 male-only version from which it borrows extensively, the workouts have a certain military style that stems from one of its founders, David Redding, a former member of the Green Berets. Although some workouts incorporate yoga and others running, the typical session features aerobic exercise sets in which participants push themselves as hard as they can, rest and repeat.In keeping with military nomenclature, participants are required to have nicknames, too. Stephanie Walton, the leader of the Apex group, is known as Peachtree; Janice Azeveda, who leads a group that meets in Cary, is known as Van Gogh.But although the exercises are hardcore, the female-only environment makes it more inviting for some women.A list of exercises drawn up by Stephanie Walton who leads the Females in Action workout in Apex, N.C. RNS photo by Yonat ShimronSwift, 55, said she felt overwhelmed attending gym classes alongside men.“I would prefer women who can influence each other,” she said.The gender restriction may be part of FiA’s more traditional appeal. If some of the newer fitness center brands draw millennials with no particular faith, FiA draws people who tend to be more religiously conventional.Though not explicitly Christian, FiA promotes the idea of a belief in a higher being, whatever that might be called (a formula that also echoes the second Alcoholics Anonymous step, “We came to be aware that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity”).Walton, a mom now studying for a degree in health and fitness science, said FiA made her a better person.“Since I’ve been doing FiA I’ve been going to church more,” she said. “I’ve been doing more soul-searching. It’s just part of it. You start caring about people. You see their children being born. You do things for their husbands when their husbands are sick.”Not everyone in F3 is religiously devout, and not all sessions end in prayer. But the group leader, called a “Q,” is expected to end each workout with what’s called a “Circle of Trust,” intended as a short time to reflect.Azevedo, who leads a 5:30 a.m. workout in nearby Cary, tends to keep things strictly nonsectarian. She concluded a recent session by reading a quote from personal coach Cheryl Richardson about the importance of self care. A 58-year-old preschool teacher, Azevedo said she nearly fainted the first time she attended a FiA workout. She was never very athletic, she said, and gyms did nothing for her. “If you decide not to go, nobody at the gym is going to say, ‘Hey, I missed you. Where were you?’” she said. “With this particular group, if you’re not there, somebody checks in with you and asks, ‘Are you OK?’ That’s a beautiful thing, having relationships of support. That’s really important.”Through FiA, she’s lost weight and gained muscle. Best of all, FiA empowers women and cheers them on.“It’s a life-changing group,” she said. “Physically you change because you’re taking care of your body. Mentally you change because you’re meeting new people and establishing new relationships and spiritually you change because you’re taking time out to reflect on your life. It’s a good thing.” Share This! Boy’s removal from church service spurs debate in UK on welcoming those with aut … Share This!

Micromacro entangled cat states could one day test quantum gravity

first_img Journal information: Physical Review Letters In order to extend quantum effects to the macroscopic level, physicists are working on creating entanglement between a macroscopic and microscopic system. This situation is very similar to that of the entanglement between the quantum state of the macroscopic cat and that of the microscopic decaying nucleus. So far, micro-macro entanglement has been experimentally demonstrated in optical systems, and is currently being pursued in other areas, such as electro-mechanical and opto-mechanical systems.In a new study published in Physical Review Letters, physicists Roohollah Ghobadi, et al., have proposed a method for generating optomechanical micro-macro entanglement. One of the most intriguing outcomes of bringing quantum effects to the macroscopic level using this approach is that it could allow researchers to test for wave function collapse due to quantum gravity, which is predicted to occur on a much shorter timescale than wave function collapse due to environmentally induced decoherence.”Our proposal allows for observation of the genuine macroscopic superposition of massive objects,” Ghobadi told Phys.org. “It also looks promising to test some collapse models.”The proposed method involves storing one component of an entangled state of light (consisting of just one or a few photons) in a mechanical resonator (consisting of billions of atoms). During this process, the initial microscopic entangled state of photons is amplified with a strong coherent beam, the photons are converted into phonons, and then the entangled states are retrieved. This approach makes it possible to create optomechanical “cat states,” in which the quantum states of the photons and phonons are in superposition. The researchers write that the scheme is realizable with current technology, and if realized, would be the second demonstration ever of optomechanical entanglement. To test proposals for quantum gravity-induced wave function collapse, future experiments could be performed that compare the collapse time (estimated to be on the order of microseconds) to the collapse time of environmentally induced decoherence (on the order of milliseconds).”It is interesting to do the proposed experiment for different masses in order to distinguish the decoherence due to a collapse model from conventional environmentally induced decoherence,” said coauthor Christoph Simon, Physics Professor at the University of Calgary.In addition, by varying other factors such as the amplification and the number of phonons, researchers could use this method to look for other types of deviations from quantum physics in this little-explored regime of micro-macro entanglement and superposition.”One possible direction is to apply the method proposed here to create cat states in other systems,” Ghobadi said. “It is also interesting to look at its application in quantum information processing.” (Phys.org) —In Schrödinger’s famous thought experiment, a cat’s quantum state becomes entangled with the quantum state of a decaying nucleus, resulting in the odd situation that the cat is both alive and dead at the same time. The thought experiment was originally intended to convey the absurdity of applying quantum mechanics to macroscopic objects, but recently physicists have been questioning whether “quantum” effects such as entanglement and superposition may apply on all scales.

This Site Wants to Help You Make Startup Friends While You Travel

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 4 min read Say you’re visiting a new city to meet a client or scout out a business location. In the past, you might have spent hours searching your network, trying to find someone to show you the lay of the land. But with the free service Startuptravels, the work is done for you with a few clicks.  That was the impetus for Anders Hasselstrøm’s project. The Copenhagen-based tech entrepreneur often traveled to Scotland on business. Last summer he seized on the idea that there was potential to up the value of those visits. “I was traveling back and forth twice a month, and I realized I should connect with entrepreneurs while I was spending so much time there,” he says. Unfortunately, Hasselstrøm couldn’t find a simple, online way to do that. “I reached out to other entrepreneurs I knew and found they were having the same issue.” His goal was to develop a service that connected visiting entrepreneurs with fellow businesspeople based in the city. The traveler could ask to grab a coffee, request an introduction to another entrepreneur, or ask for help finding local vendors or resources for a project. He or she could even barter for office space or a place to stay during the trip.To further hone the idea, Hasselstrøm connected with developers Henrik Haugbølle and Rasmus Frandsen. The three surveyed every other entrepreneur they knew—more than 250 in all—to find out their travel patterns and needs. Among the suggestions for the network was to base users’ profiles on their LinkedIn page. In practice, Startuptravels users register on the site using their LinkedIn login, and their profiles, work histories and other details automatically transfer over. The info can then be modified with useful tags like “Early Entrepreneur” and “Investor.” As soon as someone decides where and when to travel, he or she can look up locals to meet during specific dates. As more people join the site, Startuptravels’ algorithm will weed through the listings to suggest entrepreneurs with similar backgrounds and interests. Still in beta since launching in October, Startuptravels now counts nearly 3,000 active users in 120 countries. Hasselstrøm’s reliance on a community of developers to build the site saved costs and time, and created a built-in set of evangelists to promote the service. “Our co-developers were the guys who fit the archetype of our website’s persona,” Hasselstrøm says. “They are power users who are willing to give their time, office space and perhaps a spare couch to make the service valuable to fellow entrepreneurs.” Why the name Startuptravels instead of something with broader appeal? Hasselstrøm says the point was to make the service relevant to entrepreneurs at a specific stage in their careers. It also doesn’t hurt that the startup community is, by his thinking, the cool place to be right now. “Our network wouldn’t have been as valuable five or even two years ago, but today the startup economy is booming worldwide,” he says. “Startup people are the new rock stars, so now it’s not uncommon for people to identify as such. Startups now have much more value, not only in the number of people who are involved in [them], but in the respect for the word startup itself.”  March 11, 2015 Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
