BENGALURU: Industrialist Vijay Mallya will appeal against a Debt Recovery Tribunal order to recover Rs 6,203 crore along with interest from his properties for defaulting on bank loans to his now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines, a company official said on Friday. "We will file an appeal against the DRT's order on Thursday after we get its copy," a Mallya-owned United Breweries (UB) Group's spokesman said. Allowing a joint petition filed in June 2013 by a consortium of 17 banks led by the State Bank of India (SBI), the Tribunal's Bengaluru bench said the combined unpaid loans of Rs 9,091 crore, including compound interest, be recovered from the properties of Mallya and Kingfisher worth Rs 6,203 crore ($909 million).

6. Watch a funny or touching video. Some people prefer funny videos and others prefer heart-warming ones. Regardless, findings show is that even a short exposure to a positive video can significantly boost happiness. (There's a reason why one of the most popular ways to manipulate mood in experiments is to have participants watch a video.) Here are links to two funny and two touching videos. (Note: the last one is relatively long, at about 15 minutes, but it is well worth it!) Funny videos: Dog playing piano: https://www.youtube.com/w atch?v=...

A report from The Information [paywall] claims that Google is going to bring its cheap smartphone initiative, Android One , to the US. Android One was originally cooked up for developing markets like India, which saw Google lay out guidelines for OEMs to make cheap smartphones that were actually good. Android One took "good enough" hardware and paired it with stock android and fast updates. The line started out with $100 devices, with a second generation moving up to the $200 range. According to the report, in the US the devices will be a little more expensive, with releases in the $200 to $300 range. The Information wasn't sure which OEM might make the phone, but floated LG as a possible partner. LG and Google are reportedly already collaborating on an upcoming smartwatch . A big question will be who is in charge of the updates on this device, since Google has flip-flopped on Android One software updates in the past.
