BENGALURU: Here's India's hidden IT army — they clean up the internet, and their jobs sometimes take heavy personal tolls. Take Sharanya. Her new job went from dream to nightmare in just 90 days. When she joined as a content moderator for a Hyderabad-based firm in 2012, her job description was simple: sift through the content posted by users on clients' portals and social media channels, and weed out the trash. What she was not prepared for was an avalanche of disturbing visuals, many featuring child abuse. Soon, Sharanya, who requested that her second name not be disclosed to protect her identity, lost sleep and appetite. She was haunted by those images and quit her job. But there are many satisfied soldiers of the army that cleans up online filth. Chandan Kumar Nayak, content moderator for five years, has been working as a team leader at Bengaluru-based Foiwe Info Global Solutions, which offers content moderation services for a variety of clients.

Located northwest of Melbourne in a small town of the same name, the Mount Macedon House sits nestled into the side of the mountain on a plot of land that proved challenging for Field Office Architecture . Along with the clients' specifications, there were strict regulations to follow for bushfire prevention. The long, narrow site afforded uninterrupted views of the bushland to the north and northeast offering the homeowners a relaxing place to call home. With the dramatic slope of the property, the design required that the structure be elevated to limit the amount of excavation, as well as to increase the views of the landscape. The exterior is clad in corten steel, which takes care of the bushfire screening requirements, with the ability to open and close windows as needed. The rest of the structure is outfitted with screening for added privacy, which does not obstruct the views or prevent light from entering.

And it’s not rocket science. Endorse the skills of others, and there’s a good chance a considerable percentage of them will return the favor. I recommend starting with the people you’re closest to and have the tightest relationships with. This might include colleagues, team members, previous employers, and satisfied customers/clients. Look over the skills they list on their profiles, and add a few endorsements. Once they see you’ve made the effort to help them, many will be inclined to help you as well. If they know for a fact you’re adept at a particular skill, it shouldnt be any trouble for them to endorse you. And the beautiful thing is it’s easy to do. It’s not like it requires a major time commitment. Unlike personal recommendations that require someone to write a unique statement, an endorsement requires only a single click. It’s really no big deal.

"But the Goods and Services Tax Act 2014 has clearly stated that GST is already included in any charges you collect from your clients," he said. He stressed that the Act gives customs the power to issue tax notices on business outlets based only on observation of their business activities, and those who received such notices must pay up. Subromaniam said in the past one week, his department had sent out 21,000 notices to companies for submitting GST payment statements with dubious figures, reminding them to make rectifications before they are hauled up and charged in court. He said these companies thought they could escape detection by the customs department, not knowing that the GST-03 return forms they submitted to the department monthly or every three months showed all details of their accounts that the department wants to know.

“With the appointment of Mueller, this investigation got a lot more real for everyone,” the lawyer said. “Why would you send clients up to Congress now and let them get caught up in a perjury trap over what could be a minor issue?” The lawyer would not identify which witnesses might withdraw their pledge to testify voluntarily, but among the Trump advisers who have previously offered to cooperate fully with Congress are Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and a top White House adviser; former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort; and campaign advisers Roger Stone and Carter Page. Several news organizations reported last week that Kushner, in particular, has become a focus of the FBI investigation, which reports to Mueller, who is now in the second week of his investigation. After the revelation, Kushner’s lawyer, Jamie Gorelick, said in a statement that her client’s vow to cooperate with Congress had not changed.

To grow the digital business, Indian companies will have to look at not only building that vision organically, but also through non-organic opportunities to allow them to scale, he said. Indian IT giants should be interested in acquiring companies that have customers in the US and are focused on new knowhow, he added. On the other hand, though they have been sitting on piles of cash, they have not been open to digital acquisitions like Accenture, which made significant acquisitions in digital space -- Karmarama and Mobgen in 2016, Lakshmikanth said. To win digital deals, Indian companies also need to invest in business consultancy to build a consulting brand for themselves, he said. "Our consulting business is nowhere close to that of IBM or Accenture. These companies have traditionally advised their clients on technology, on business - an advantage which we don't have," Lakshmikanth said.

Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut, the No. 2 Democrat on the House panel, said it was important for lawmakers to continue their investigations, noting that Congress has a “slightly different” mission than the FBI. He said the FBI’s job is to investigate whether crimes were committed, not informing the public about the larger issues at hand. “We're not there to discover evidence of and to prosecute a crime,” Himes said. “We're there to really understand all the forces and aspects of the Russian hack. The scary scenario is more a scenario where the FBI does what they do, and we don't get the benefit of what they have learned just because they decide to prosecute this individual but not that individual.” But Herman, the lawyer who has represented lawmakers under ethics investigations, said there were “a lot of potential avenues for problems.” He said that as a defense lawyer, he would be “very cautious” about allowing clients to submit to multiple interviews where there’s the potential they could contradict themselves.

The process has already presented some conflict of interest issues. Government lawyers typically have to recuse from inquiries involving their former firm’s clients for one year—and Trump’s decision to tap one of his personal lawyers, Marc Kasowitz, to oversee his outside lawyers working on the Russia-related probes appears to have contributed to former senator and Democratic vice-presidential nominee Joe Lieberman’s decision to step out of the running for the FBI job. Another lawyer being seriously considered for the coveted U.S. attorney post in Manhattan, Edward McNally, is also a partner at the same New York firm. It’s unclear if the tie has affected McNally’s candidacy. “You always see the same names coming back,” said Paul Rosenzweig, a lawyer who served in the Department of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush. “I look around at people considering going into the Trump administration and the same names come up for every open job…It’s the same six names for every open job—the people who are both qualified and willing to serve.

Sadly her father died in 2015, but his death was peaceful, something she attributes to medical cannabis. “I saw my dad go from being a vegetable in a hospital waiting to die to being at home again, thanks to a plant.” She goes on, “I had spent my career helping to build a system that was failing people. I said to myself, ‘I can’t do this. I worked for the wrong people.’ ” After cutting ties with her clients, Cindy began lobbying for medical cannabis patients whose interests needed representing on Capitol Hill. It takes guts for people to publicly admit they are wrong, particularly when it comes to cannabis. So, i t’s only right and fair then that we salute these brave individuals, and the many more who champion the right to access the cannabis plant for our health, and the health of our children.
