Mar 29, 2017 It’s not just firms in Silicon Valley that are waiting with baited breath to see how their hiring processes may have to change due to recent changes in U.S. immigration policies. By far, the technology industry is responsible for sponsoring more H-1B visas in the U.S. than any other industry. These visas enable companies offering everything from computer data retrieval services to coding to recruit workers from abroad, with the majority coming from Asia. For technology majors in foreign countries who have plans of coming to the U.S. after graduation, these recent changes can be life changing. And for U.S. based tech firms who have long depended on international recruiting efforts, a major overhaul of both how and where they will source their talent is soon to come. Expedited H1-B Visa Processing Set To End Normally, computer and tech firms sponsoring employees from other nations would be able to quickly fill their ranks by getting visa applications expedited.

DHAKA: Bangladesh police came under grenade attack when they raided two suspected Islamist extremist hideouts on Wednesday, days after a major anti-militant drive in which 10 people were killed. Police said counter-terrorism officers raided two houses in Moulvibazar district in the northeast after receiving a tip-off that extremists were sheltering there. A stand-off ensued, with those inside the houses throwing grenades, local police chief Rashedul Islam told AFP. "In one of the houses, we suspect there are eight to nine of them," he said, adding the houses were owned by a Bangladeshi-origin British citizen. The raids came after army commandos stormed a five-storey building in the nearby city of Sylhet, triggering a violent three-day stand-off. At least four extremists died and another six people including two police officers were killed when two bombs went off on Saturday near a crowd watching the operation.

For all that specialized shooters and rim runners have done to accelerate and accommodate the NBA 's stylistic revolution, the fundamentals of success are the same as ever. Step 1: Find a superstar. Step 1a: Find another superstar. Step 2: Build around said superstar(s). Easier said than done. The Philadelphia 76ers intentionally spent three of the past four seasons near the league's basement in search of inexpensive studs in the draft. Before that, seemingly half of the NBAmost notably the Miami Heat and New York Knickshoarded cap space at all costs for the first Summer of LeBron James. If cornerstones weren't so hard to come by, the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers might've more readily parted with Jimmy Butler or Paul George , respectively, at this year's trade deadline. That's what separates basketball from most other major team sports: One great player can change everything.
