The event has seen over one lakh registrations for the various tracks. On an average every developer is participating in more than two of these contests. More than 25% of developers are from outside India with the event continuing to attract more participants from the coding community. 

As one the fastest growing community for developers in the world, HackerEarth is conducting Indiahacks to encourage programming and celebrate the spirit of hacking among coders. The month long code fest will see a combination of online hackathons and programming contests. There are three programming tracks around Algorithms Programming, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning. These tracks will have developers solving complex programming problems by using concepts of algorithms, data structures, data science, artificial intelligence etc. Additionally, there will be six online hackathons in the domains of FinTech, IoT, Gaming, Open Source, Online Commerce, Travel and Transport. These hackathons will see developers build unique and interesting products according to the themes in less than 48 hours.

Hacks will be evaluated based on parameters like uniqueness of the idea, usability of the hack, code quality, design etc. The top 20 shortlists from each of the tracks will be invited to an offline conference, where they will get another 24 hours to build on their hacks and pitch to a panel of judges. The winners of IndiaHacks will be decided at the offline developer conference on March 19th & 20th, 2016 in Bangalore. The winning team will be rewarded with a fully paid trip to San Francisco. Other exciting prizes include X-box, GoPro Hero 4, and HackerEarth goodies.

Through their ‘new methodology’ that is based on the fundamentals of Design-Thinking and Design-led Engineering, Altimetrik is at the epicenter of powering the next wave of  IT and business transformation. It is this outlook that led Altimetrik to sponsor HackerEarth’s IndiaHacks 2016, as a major hiring and outreach opportunity to nurture young talent and give programmers and coders the opportunity to transform themselves into ‘Design Engineers’.

US stocks had their worst annual performance

Written By Unknown on Friday, January 1, 2016 | 9:14 AM

U.S. stocks had their worst annual performance since 2008, closing out a rocky year that tempered investors' expectations for gains in 2016.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, a basket of 30 stocks, lost 2.2% in 2015, while the broader S&P 500 fell 0.7%.

The S&P's loss ended three years of double-digit gains for the index, but was far from the nearly 40% dive it took in 2008, a year of financial crisis.

The year wasn't grim across the board. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite Index rose 5.7%. Netflix and Amazon.com, the top-performing stocks in the S&P 500 in percentage terms, rose 134% and 118%, respectively. The consumer discretionary sector, which includes stocks such as Starbucks and Expedia, led the S&P 500 with an 8.4% gain.

But broadly, the market struggled. While an extended slump in commodity prices helped drag the stock market into negative territory this year, six of the 10 sectors in the S&P 500 posted losses.

"I see more headwinds than I do favorable factors" next year, said Keith Bliss, senior vice president at brokerage Cuttone & Co.

New Year's Eve trading didn't help. On Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped another 1% to 17425.03. The S&P 500, which fell 0.9% to 2043.94, was up for the year as of Wednesday's close, but Thursday's losses pushed it into negative territory for 2015. The Nasdaq Composite fell 1.15% to 5007.41.

Markets are closed Friday for the New Year holiday.

Shares in Europe mostly performed well in 2015, but many investors had expected sharper gains. The Stoxx Europe 600 rose 6.8% this year. In Asia, the Shanghai Composite Index ended up 9.4% in a roller-coaster year in which the index plunged over 40% in late August.

HR Thought Leaders Debate 'Managing Employees, Expectations and E-space" at the Annual HR Conclave Organised by Jindal Global University

Written By Unknown on Friday, November 20, 2015 | 4:04 AM


The 2nd HR Conclave on “ Managing the Three Es: Expectations, Employees and E-Space” was hosted by the Centre for Leadership & Change, O.P. Jindal Global University in association with Career Development and Placement Division supported by HR Club of Jindal Global Business School.

With increasing integration of the world and fast advancing technology, managing diversity and building capability to deal with disruptive technologies of the future are foremost challenges for the human resource professionals of today, opined HR experts at the conference.

Delivering the inaugural address Prof. C Raj Kumar Founding Vice Chancellor, O. P. Jindal Global University said, “HR departments should guard against the deterioration of the ethical edifice of the organisation. Organisations of the future will be judged by their ethical fabric.” Prof. Kumar emphasized that “HR professionals today and in the future must move away from a focus on money making. This is a people’s era and the focus should be on human resource.”

Balancing the three Es- Expectations, Employees and E-Space in any organisation becomes an imminent imperative. Management of these becomes both an art as much as science , while  conventional wisdom may provide a few answers, chances are that un-conventional paradigms will have to be found and exploited. Both the parameters as well as the drivers of success will have to be re-calibrated and re-defined opined most thought leader at the conclave.

Dr. Sanjeev P Sahni, Principal Director, Jindal Institute of Behavioural Sciences (JIBS) laid emphasis on the changing role of HR professionals, “HR is a strategic partner and the face of any organization, it plays a central role in the organisations growth. HR should not be seen as a cost but as an investment and organisations have to be careful not to let the emerging, interactive and innovative technologies diminish the importance of HR.”
 
Mr. Prakash Pathak, Director  Career Development and Placement Division, O. P. Jindal Global University said, “The conclave touched upon many pertinent issues related to the main theme. Organizations being the place where people spend almost half their lives, the employees expect some validation of their education, skills, time and more importantly their value as a person and human being. The organizations, on the other hand, expect the job well done and achievement of targets and goals. The conclave deliberated on this issue with the effect of technology and E space in this fast changing world. The conclave also reflected upon the rising of ‘Specialist’ vis-à-vis a ‘Generalist’, especially in this age of millennials. It was a pleasure listening to the views of various eminent speakers on this topic of relevance.”

The Conclave saw three plenary sessions. The first session was on “Defining the New Age Workforce and the Contours of Changing Technologies.” Followed by a session on the “The impact of the ever expansive E-space on employees and their expectations-how easy or difficult to meet?” while the third revolved around the theme “Expectations from the workforce- an organizational perspective”.

Speaking at the conclave Dayanand  Allapur, Vice President and Head of Human Resources, Capagemini Business Services said “Whether we see it as a disruption or opportunity, technology has changed lives forever and HR professionals have to be tuned to adapt to the changing world”

Allapur noted, “Just by looking at how the smartphone and flooding of apps have changed the way people read or buy their clothes, displacing thousands of people from their traditional business set up in the process, can explain how disruptive technology can be. Adapting to new-age technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence is the need of the hour.”

Disruptive also refers to the paradigm shift that the HR professionals are currently experiencing due to the changing technologies and market needs, Chaitali Mukherjee, managing principal, leadership and talent consulting practice, Korn Ferry India, said at the event.

Similarly, managing diversity in the workforce in terms of gender, age or nationality are some of the other challenges for the HR professionals of today, said Deepak Chawla, head, human resource, Reliance Infrastructure.

Being the custodian of an organisation';s culture, HR professionals today face the huge challenge of offering "customised approach" to fulfill the needs of the employees with different culture and capabilities, suggested Sandeep Chaudhary, practice leader, compensation consulting, Asia Pacific, Aon Hewitt.
 
Mr. Pankaj Dubey, MD & Country Head – Polaris India Pvt. Ltd, Mr. Prakash Bisht, GM HR, ICICI Bank and Mr. Pranav Jyoti, Partner-HR,Askmebazaar.com among others, also shared their views on emerging challenges for HR on the occasion.

Bihar Elections: Now focus on Economy

Written By Unknown on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 | 12:44 AM

The battle for Bihar is over. The Grand Alliance decimated the BJP-led NDA, scoring a landslide two-thirds majority in the assembly polls. It secured 178 seats in the 243-member House — RJD: 80 seats, JD(U): 71 seats and Congress: 27 seats. The NDA secured 58 seats, with the BJP on its own securing 53 seats. Political analysts are now dissecting the reasons for the NDA's electoral defeat, and along with them economy watchers have come out with views on possible economic impact of the verdict. I think the NDA's defeat in the Bihar elections is unlikely to have any major negative implication on the economy.

Prior to the election results, some concerns surfaced that a NDA defeat may hit the government's reform agenda. It was pointed out that a victory would help the Centre to strengthen its presence in the Upper House where its legislative agenda has been repeatedly blocked. But the fact is that Bihar has 16 Rajya Sabha seats out of which four seats are currently held by the BJP, the other 12 being occupied by Janata Dal (United) MPs. Out of the total seats, five (all JD-U members) will fall vacant in 2016 and six in 2018 (four JD-U and two BJP members). So, a BJP win would have hardly helped clear the current RS logjam, though it is now clear that the NDA will get only one out of five Bihar Rajya Sabha seats in 2016 and one out of six seats in 2018.

In the backdrop of the Bihar defeat, industry experts have urged the Centre to give undivided focus on its economic agenda. According to a global financial house, the importance of the Bihar election is overstated and the incremental economic reforms are likely to continue irrespective of the verdict. According to some others, the elections verdict may even result in a better outcome for the future of economic reforms if the Centre takes this as a lesson that only sticking to the development agenda could help them win. I support these views, but at the same time I think the verdict should not be taken by the Opposition as a mandate to obstruct Parliament.

The PM recently said that the Indian economy is better placed today, with some major economic indicators, including GDP growth, foreign investment, current account deficit, fiscal deficit and revenue collection giving a better picture. There is no denial of this fact. In addition, control in corruption and sign of improvement in Doing Business raking are also positive developments. But there is still much to be done. Exports are down, quarterly corporate results are not showing uptick in sales, manufacturing is struggling, banks' NPA problem is still looming, and so on. Also, issues like power sector woes, bankruptcy norms and rail-road project development need to be adequately addressed.

I invite your opinions. I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and prosperous Diwali.

Russian millionaire found dead in Washington, D.C. hotel

Written By Unknown on Friday, November 6, 2015 | 11:10 PM

A prominent Russian millionaire and press minister under Vladimir Putin was found dead of an apparent heart attack in a Washington hotel, according to U.S. and Russian news sources.

Mikhail Lesin, the former head of media affairs for the Russian government who's been accused of curtailing the country's press freedoms, had been staying at Hotel Dupont when he was found Thursday, according to ABC News.

Washington's Metropolitan Police Department said the incident was under investigation and that the identity of the victim could not yet be confirmed.

Police first got the call about the death Thursday morning at about 11:34 a.m. ET, Officer Sean Hickman, a spokesman for the department's public information office, said Friday night.

The Dupont Circle Hotel is located at 1500 New Hampshire Avenue, NW. A woman who answered the phone at the site said it was not hotel policy to give out information on guests.

According to the Russian embassy, Lesin, 57, was found dead in his hotel room, TASS Russian News Agency reported.

Following the news, Putin expressed condolences to the family of Lesin, who had served as a presidential adviser from 2004 to 2009, Sputnik News reported.

"The president has a high appreciation for Mikhail Lesin's massive contribution to the creation of modern Russian mass media," the Kremlin's press service said, RT reported.

Sputnik News said Lesin died in Moscow, although several other media, including Reuters, ABC and the New York Daily News, identified Washington as the location where he died.

It's unclear why Lesin would have been in the U.S.

Lesin's relatives say he suffered from a disease and died because of the heart attack

Lesin is credited with creating Russia Today, the English-language news network backed by the Russian government. Now known as RT, the network "provides an alternative perspective on major global events, and acquaints an international audience with the Russian viewpoint," according to its website.

ABC reported that from 1999 to 2004, Lesin served as Russia's Minister of Press, Television and Radio, often traveling with Putin on official trips.

He then served as presidential media adviser from 2004 to 2009, RT reported.

In 2013, he became head of Gazprom-Media Holding, the state-controlled media giant that describes itself as one of the largest media groups in Russia and Europe. Lesin resigned the next year, reportedly citing family reasons.

Death on Railway track: Why rains cannot take all the blame?

Written By Unknown on Thursday, August 6, 2015 | 12:45 AM

At least 25 humans died and 50 have been injured when  trains derailed within mins of every other whilst crossing a small bridge in Madhya Pradesh, rapidly earlier than middle of the night on Tuesday. The Kamayani express, going to Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh from Mumbai, derailed near Harda metropolis, 160 km south of Bhopal. The Janata specific, en path to Mumbai from Patna, too derailed at the same spot minutes later.

Derailment isn't very commonplace. remaining 12 months much less than 1 according to cent of teach injuries have been due to derailments and mere 0.23 consistent with cent of demise on tracks passed off because of it.

What reasons tracks to dislocate?

normally derailment caused by flash floods takes place in deserts in which ecology can't handle huge amount of water.

Rail tracks can deliver way due to the fact sand is not a robust binder.

however the opportunity of such derailment could be very low, in places like Madhya Pradesh, wherein the soil has clay which supports tracks.
If the temperature differential in a day could be very high then the modern long-welded rails can fracture, theoretically. This possibility is specifically high in March or November months but it isn't always commonplace. Welding flaw, obstruction heading in the right direction or landslide can be other motives.

What does Railway do in rains?

according to a former official within the Indian Railways' mechanical wing, there may be an institutionalised association each time there is a weather prediction for heavy rains.

Monsoon patrolling of tracks is completed by way of the gangman. except, drivers are advised.

"Overspeeding cannot purpose derailments considering tracks are tested with rolling stock walking at 10 in line with cent better speed than normal. besides, in contrast to street, rear wheels of trains are guided by using song and no longer pace in order that they generally do now not soar off the tune."

How can defects be detected via automated structures?

song circuiting can detect defects early with out manual patrolling. it's far, but, feasible to put into effect this handiest on small stretches like suburban systems because of excessive value.
