FPIs are worried that benefits under the amended treaties for derivatives & debt instruments may be questioned under Gaar, which will take effect on April 1.

“The larger question is, can a domestic law apply to an investment in a country where an international treaty is already signed?” said a tax expert. Additionally, investment in other instruments apart from equity may be impacted, experts said. “The exemption for capital gains from sale of derivatives and debt instruments, which continues even under the revised treaties with Mauritius and Singapore, is not subject to any expenditure threshold under those two treaties,” said Gandhi. “So it is all the more likely that Gaar could be invoked in those cases and may put a dampener to the exemption.”

The graphene temporary tattoo seen here is the thinnest epidermal electronic device ever and according to the University of Texas at Austin researchers who developed it, the device can take some medical measurements as accurately as bulky wearable sensors like EKG monitors. From IEEE Spectrum : Graphene’s conformity to the skin might be what enables the high-quality measurements. Air gaps between the skin and the relatively large, rigid electrodes used in conventional medical devices degrade these instrumentssignal quality. Newer sensors that stick to the skin and stretch and wrinkle with it have fewer airgaps, but because they’re still a few micrometers thick, and use gold electrodes hundreds of nanometers thick, they can lose contact with the skin when it wrinkles. The graphene in the Texas researchersdevice is 0.3-nm thick. Most of the tattoo’s bulk comes from the 463-nm-thick polymer support.

Technocrats from three NATO states wrapped up meetings on Thursday focused on security arrangements in Cyprus, seeking to break an impasse in talks over the ethnically split island, a U.N. envoy said. "The working group... successfully completed the mandate entrusted to it. Namely identifying specific questions related to the issue of security and guarantees and the instruments needed to address them," U.N. envoy for Cyprus Espen Barth Eide said in a statement about the consultations, which were launched on Wednesday. The sides had agreed not to disclose details about deliberations since the process had not yet ended, he said. It was not immediately clear when the sides would meet again. Officials from Britain, Turkey and Greece as well as representatives of Cyprus's Greeks and Turks had been considering how to address security concerns in a post-settlement Cyprus if the now estranged Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides ever reach a deal to co-govern.

When I talk to her, I think - is she really my daughter? She is very mature for her age. I can see something different to her then. She is also very musical. She loves performing, she loves to learnt musical instruments. I think because her dad is a member of the band, he plays all the musical instruments. I was in the theatre before, so maybe she got it all from there.

Apple has today announced several impressive updates for GarageBand on iOS and Logic Pro X on Mac. If you happen to use both of these music-creation tools, the biggest news will likely be the ability to add new tracks to your Logic sessions via a cloud-based, GarageBand-compatible version of your project making it easier than ever to create tracks on the go. The updated GarageBand for iOS (now at version 2.2) has been blessed with the acclaimed software synthesizer Alchemy , which was acquired by Apple from Camel Audio early in 2015 and has since become a staple of Logic Pro X. On top of this, its now much easier to rifle through your sample libraries and Touch instruments to find the right tool for the job thanks to a powerful redesigned sound browser. Multi-Take Recording allows you to pick your best moments without having to fiddle for hours, and GarageBands redesigned audio recorder can utilise simple one-touch effects, along with more detailed studio treatments like delay and pitch correction.

What assessments as the Government made on the operational value on the E U data-sharing? Would access to these instruments require the UK to apply with data protection laws in practice, even if it is no longer under a legal obligation to do so. Answers to these questions are fundamental because otherwise we would not be able to implement the commitment to take back control of our laws and bring an end to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.

We have heard about the issue of data sharing. As I understand it, some of the instruments make no provision currently at all for sharing information with third countries. Or they expressively prohibit transfer of information to non-Schengen parties.

Any method propped by mainstream medicine that is. He calls it holographic blood: Blood showing illness Nobel peace prize winner Luc Montagnier found that DNA can imprint on its environment. Once the DNA was removed during the experiments it could still be detected by his instruments . He later filed a patent for technology that can more accurately detectphantom DNA” as he calls it. DNA and water can be affected by sound, their very physical makeup can be altered and rewritten via sound and energy and it has its own memory . It is also a two way street, in terms of it also imprinting on the environment. Just like an interactive game, you give the gave input and it will give it back to you. What this means we have a relationship with reality that we never fully understood the significance of. Now lets remember that thoughts have their own energy and can be measured as well .

As the government pushes digital payments agenda in line with demonetisation efforts, smartphones are being perceived as key instruments to drive home the point of Digital India. There is an increasing feeling that apart from cashless transactions, a smartphone in the hands of the poor can also help deliver services around health, education, farming and employment. Jain said while working towards a pre-designated price point, it is critical that the final product does not fall short of consumer experience. So the battery capacity, camera clarity, processor capability, screen size and build quality must be able to satisfy users. Nidhi Markanday, director at Intex, said the company is already selling smartphones priced at Rs 2,000. "But these are devices that run on 2G networks. As the reach of 3G and 4G networks increases, and depending on demand and support extended by the government, we are ready to manufacture phones that are compatible with them.

Twelve ultrasonic sensors and a forward-facing radar allow for detection of objects, even through heavy rain, fog, dust, and the car ahead. Tesla remains committed to enabling full self-driving capabilities by the end of the year, but the process of gaining regulatory approval, which Tesla said may vary widely by jurisdiction, will presumably be a long and challenging process. Once approved, however, the technology will truly change cars forever, and it's easy to imagine why Lattner would want to be part of that change. At Apple, he led a group of about 200 people responsible for Swift, Xcode, Swift Playgrounds, Instruments, CPU and GPU compilers, and low-level tools, among other things. These tools are used both within Apple and by third-party developers targeting the iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS software platforms. Lattner was hired at Apple in 2005 to bring his LLVM Compiler Infrastructure to production quality for use in its products.

The Band’s Robbie Robertson has worked on and off at the Village since the 1970s, and Studio Ed is home to Grammy-winning producer and engineer Ed Cherney. At their service are a few dozen engineers and gofers, many of them young musicians Greenberg has hired through a relationship with the Berklee College of Music. On the third floor, in a former musical instrument storage space once occupied by, among others, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, pop songwriter Noel Zancanella is meeting with a few would-be collaborators. When Danny Elfman rented the space, he renamed it Muerte Surgical Instruments. Zancanella, whose homey suite feels like a secret clubhouse, started as a Village coffee boy under Greenberg. He rose to assistant engineer, struck out on his own and has since co-written or co-produced hits for Taylor Swift, OneRepublic and Maroon 5. After his success, Zancanella debated building a home studio at his place in Venice.

Basically, they’d build you whatever body you wanted. One choice of that style car was a fairly simple shape with no compound curves. The idea of a tapered fuselage body that was relatively easy to build with separate fenders appealed to me. That’s how we chose this body style. I bought a slip roll to do the rolling of the body panels and it worked out pretty well. There were a few times I’d make a piece, scrap it, and make another until I was happy. But for the first time doing sheet metal, I think it came out pretty good. It was persistence and a “you learn while you do” mentality. AG: It looks great and I love the rivets. What have you got going on with the interior? ML: The instruments are just Stewart Warner units out of the Speedway Catalog. They have a vintage line that looks like the old timey instruments, so we used those. The steering wheel I actually made that from scratch.
