GEORGE TOWN: The silver chariot procession is set to leave earlier, at 7pm on Feb 7, during Thaipusam festival this year. Penang Hindu Endowment Board (PHEB) chairman P. Ramasamy said the matter has angered PHEB as the chettiars had decided to do so without consulting them. Ramasamy said he was shocked to learn the matter and said the move was 'irresponsible'. "Thaipusam falls on Feb 9 and the silver chariot procession usually takes of on the eve at 6.30am. "The announcement is made by the Chettiars' representative N Ramanathan and it is reported by Tamil daily Malaysia Nanban today," he told reporters at a press conference in Komtar today (Jan 20). Ramasamy added the Chettiars did not raise the matter during a logistics meeting with police chiefs on Jan 11. He said the Chettiars also did not object the Hilltop Murugan Temple's inaugural golden chariot from leaving 90 minutes before them, at 5am.

The 2.0-litre TDI diesel emits 112g/km in this specification, and with economy of 70.6mpg it'll definitely suit those after a frugal four-door. There's plenty of power to make use of, though, as the 187bhp engine will go from 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds. It's at its best in-gear, with the 400Nm maximum torque coming in low down in the rev rangemeaning you don't have to push too hard to build up speed. The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox works well with this engine too, shifting smoothly in most conditions. It seems a bit laggy when slowing down for a junction and then speeding up to join traffic, but use the paddles behind the steering wheel for manual mode and it works very well. Image 5 of 14 Image 5 of 14 Head into some fast corners and you'll find that this front-wheel drive A5 Sportback feels nearly as composed as its quattro siblings.

It was really tight match, taking the first set 7-5, the next two on tie-breaks. Andy Murray showed little sign of the ankle problem he picked up in the 2nd round as he breezed through his 3rd round match against Sam Querrey at the Australian Open. He beat the American in straight sets 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 and will now play the German Mischa Zverev.

JOBS The vision: Trump campaigned as a champion of the working class and repeatedly promised to bring manufacturing and coal jobs back to the U.S. His campaign platform promised 25 million new jobs in the next decade. Since his election, he’s touted announcements by various companies, including United Technologies Corp., and most recently General Motors, as evidence that major firms into creating or keeping jobs in the U.S. Trump has threatened corporate America with a 35 percent border tax on any company that moves production outside the U.S. and then tries to ship goods back to the country. Key leaders: Andrew Puzder, Trump’s pick to lead the Labor Department, is the CEO of CKE Restaurants, which owns Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. Puzder opposed the Labor Department’s overtime rule (now blocked by a federal court), and has been reluctant to raise the hourly minimum wage, currently $7.

Microsoft has kicked off a new offer to let those who have a Windows subscription with the Cloud Solution Provider scheme upgrade their Windows 7/8.1 machines to Windows 10 for free. This will allow those on Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and E5 plans, as well as those subscribed to Secure Productive Enterprise E3 and E5, to make the leap to Microsofts newest desktop OS with no need to purchase separate upgrade licenses. As Microsoft notes, this is another opportunity to take advantage of what Windows 10 offers particularly on the security front for businesses for those who missed out on the initial free upgrade offer (which ran for the first year of the operating systems existence and officially expired at the end of last July although there are still unofficial loopholes to use it even now). Customers wont lose access to the OS if they happen to leave the CSP scheme, either.
