But, unlike the previous programmes, this is very special, as it is touted to announce something new and make no mistake, it will have a huge effect on the entertainment business arena.Apple is slated to kick off the Special Event at 10:00 am PDT (10:30 pm IST) at the company’s prestigious Steve Jobs Theater, 1 Apple Park, Cupertino. Like the previous events, Apple will broadcast the entire programme live online.

But, last week, it in series of three days, launched iPad Air (3rd gen), iPad mini (5th gen), upgraded iMac series, AirPods (2nd gen), new Watch band spring collection along with iPhone cases, hinting that the company didn’t want the hardware products to consume too much time on the stage and make the invitees lose patience before the final announcement. Personally, I imagined, Tim Cook, taking the stage after the hardware announcement and say the words ‘One more thing…’ But, as we know, it won’t be happening that way, at least in the upcoming event. Apple’s new tvOS 12 comes with features for Apple TV 4K and Apple TV (4th gen) to make it even easier for customers to access the shows and movies across all Apple devicesApple India Press KitHowever, there is a lot of significance for Apple and this probably in the long term may become a cash cow for the company, like the current iPhone, which by the way is losing interest from customers from the past quarter. More and more people are restraining to go for new iPhone after two years, instead of waiting for one more year to get one.It is widely reported Apple will foray into the multimedia streaming service, which will take on giants such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu, among others.Apple is said to be spending close to $2 billion dollars to produce its own shows and the interesting thing about the deals with show producers is that all content to show on Apple service will be family oriented and there will no adult content.Apple has reportedly signed several big Hollywood celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and also Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are already working on ‘The Morning Show’ TV series.

It is expected to collaborate with Show Time and other content partners in the near future.Besides the new multi-media streaming, the Cupertino-based company is also expected to announce Apple News subscription, which entitles customers to access top media websites including Wall Street Journal and 200 other magazines for a monthly subscription of $9.99.Apple Special Event time details:CityCityTimeTimeTime-ZoneTime-ZoneCitySan Francisco (U.S.A. – California)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 10:00:00Time-ZonePDTCityNew York (U.S.A. – New York)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 13:00:00Time-ZoneEDTCityOttawa (Canada- Ontario)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 13:00:00Time-ZoneEDTCityRio de Janeiro (Brazil – Rio de Janeiro)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 14:00:00Time-ZoneBRTCityLondon (United Kingdom – England)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 18:00:00Time-ZoneGMTCityParis (France)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 19:00:00Time-ZoneCETCityBarcelona (Spain)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 19:00:00Time-ZoneCETCityBerlin (Germany)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 19:00:00Time-ZoneCETCityAmsterdam (Netherlands)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 19:00:00Time-ZoneCETCityJohannesburg (South Africa)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 19:00:00Time-ZoneSASTCityMoscow (Russia)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 20:00:00Time-ZoneMSKCityAbu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates – Abu Dhabi)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 21:00:00Time-ZoneGSTCityIslamabad (Pakistan)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 22:00:00Time-ZonePKTCityNew Delhi (India – New Delhi)TimeWednesday, September 12, 2018, 22:30:00Time-ZoneISTCityIndonesia (Jakarta)TimeThursday, September 13, 2018, 00:00:00Time-ZoneWIBCityBeijing (China – Beijing Municipality)TimeThursday, September 13, 2018, 01:00:00Time-ZoneCSTCityHong Kong (Hong Kong)TimeThursday, September 13, 2018, 01:00:00Time-ZoneHKTCitySingapore (Singapore)TimeThursday, September 13, 2018, 01:00:00Time-ZoneSGTCityTaipei (Taiwan) TimeThursday, September 13, 2018, 01:00:00Time-ZoneCSTCitySeoul (South Korea)TimeThursday, September 13, 2018, 02:00:00Time-ZoneKSTCityTokyo (Japan)TimeThursday, September 13, 2018, 02:00:00Time-ZoneJSTCityCanberra (Australia – Australian Capital Territory)TimeThursday, September 13, 2018, 03:00:00Time-ZoneAEST Hong Kong (Hong Kong)Thursday, September 13, 2018, 01:00:00HKT Rio de Janeiro (Brazil – Rio de Janeiro)Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 14:00:00BRT Moscow (Russia)Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 20:00:00MSK Barcelona (Spain)Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 19:00:00CET Canberra (Australia – Australian Capital Territory)Thursday, September 13, 2018, 03:00:00AEST CityTimeTime-Zone Seoul (South Korea)Thursday, September 13, 2018, 02:00:00KST Beijing (China – Beijing Municipality)Thursday, September 13, 2018, 01:00:00CST Ottawa (Canada- Ontario)Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 13:00:00EDT London (United Kingdom – England)Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 18:00:00GMT Johannesburg (South Africa)Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 19:00:00SAST Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates – Abu Dhabi)Wednesday, September 12, 2018, 21:00:00GST Taipei (Taiwan) Thursday, September 13, 2018, 01:00:00CST Singapore (Singapore)Thursday, September 13, 2018, 01:00:00SGT

Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan attends talks at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, 2 November 2018. Photo: ReutersPakistan prime minister Imran Khan, addressing calls by his countrymen on social media and in his government to award him a Nobel Peace Prize for “de-escalating” tensions with India, on Monday said that he is not worthy of the honour.”I am not worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize. The person worthy of this would be the one who solves the Kashmir dispute according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people and paves the way for peace and human development in the subcontinent,” he tweeted.Supporters and officials of Khan’s administration started lobbying for a Nobel Peace Prize for him following his announcement to release Indian Air Force (IAF) officer wing commander Abhinandan who was captured by Pakistan on 27 February after his MiG-21 crashed inside Pakistani territory. He was released on 1 March.Soon after the Indian pilot was handed over to the Indian authorities, the hashtag “#NobelPeacePrizeForImranKhan” started trending in Pakistan on Twitter. Until Sunday, over 300,000 people had signed online petitions seeking the Nobel for Khan.A resolution was also submitted in the country’s National Assembly Secretariat last week for the same. The motion stated that Khan played a “sagacious role in reducing tension between Pakistan and India which was created due to warmongering attitude of the Indian leadership”.Meanwhile, the Pakistan Peoples Party, which had earlier questioned the timing of the release of the Indian pilot, expressed its sorrow over the ongoing campaign for the award.

Kolkata: State Urban Development minister and Kolkata Mayor Firhad Hakim slammed the Centre for its new policy on cable TV subscription. He alleged that broadcasters will get more profit due to the new policy and the income of local cable operators and Multiple System Operator(MSO)s will go down.On Wednesday, Hakim inaugurated SAARC region’s largest cable and broadband show organised by the Cable TV Equipment Traders and Manufacturers Association (CTMA) at the Cable TV Show 2019 at the Science City. Also Read – 3 injured, flight, train services hit as rains lash BengalDuring the programme, he alleged that incase of the new policy regarding the cable TV network and broadcasting, the Centre is greasing the pumps of broadcasters. Broadcasters earn a huge amount of money from advertisements. “In several areas, this business is the bread and butter for several unemployed youths. Broadcasters are forcing them to pay from their pockets. If cable operators and MSO’s charge the subscribers then they would face questions regarding this,” said Hakim. The organisers at the show said cable operators and MSO’s can witness new technologies. The industry is getting upgraded every year. There are 24 pavilions and 106 stalls present at the show. “The digital cable television network and broadband industry are expanding rapidly. New vendors are coming up with new technologies and consumer friendly solutions,” said Pawan Jajodia, Chairman Exhibition of CTMA.
Kolkata: State Transport minister Suvendu Adhikari on Friday held the erstwhile Left Front government responsible for huge losses incurred by the transport Corporations and reiterated that his department has taken several corrective measures for the losses developing ‘Corporations’ under the aegis of his department.”The wrong policy of the erstwhile Left Front government has contributed to the ‘Corporations’ incurring huge losses. Before 2010-11, the ratio of a bus to its employees was 1:11, higher than the national average which is 1:5.17 . I have standardised this to 1:4.48. Our thrust is to ensure the best of transport facilities for the common people and to make the Corporations free from running it with subsidy. We have ushered in professionalism in the functioning of the Corporations,” Adhikari said in response to a query from Congress MLA Asit Mitra at the state Assembly. Adhikari said that the Left government had left a debt of Rs 132 crore on the Transport department in 2011. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataHe maintained that his department has adopted a clear policy in introducing buses only in those routes that are economically viable. “We run buses only in those routes where we get at least 50 percent return of the cost incurred in operating the buses. We do not take any bank loan for functioning of the Corporations,” Adhikari said. The state Transport department now runs 3,592 buses across the state and has 14514 employees involved for running the show. He added that the government has already introduced 20 electric buses and will roll out another 60 by the end of July. Altogether, 55 charging stations have been set up. Asserting the measures taken for leakage of revenue, the minister said that electronic ticketing system has been introduced in state run buses. ” The buses in North Bengal will also be equipped with this system by September,” Adhikari said.
