NEW DELHI: The government is favourably considering the proposal of US-based iphone maker Apple, which plans to set up a manufacturing unit in the country. The proposal is with the the commerce and industry ministry and it is "favourably" considering the proposal, sources said. "Although no final decision has been taken yet and the proposal has to be finally approved by the Prime Minister's Office but a few states are ready to welcome them," they said. Last month, Apple Inc had indicated to the government that it is ready with a blueprint to begin manufacturing iPhones in India but wants fiscal concessions, including Customs duty waiver on import of components. With sales tapering in the US and China, Apple is eyeing India -- the fastest growing smartphone market in the world -- and looking to set up a local manufacturing unit to cut costs. It, however, does not manufacture devices on its own and rather does it through contract manufacturers.

We are not in Iraq to seize anybody's oil, he said. While speaking at the CIA headquarters last month, Trump cited the adage. To the victor belong the spoils, and said America should have kept the oil after pulling most of its troops out of the country under his predecessor Barack Obama. The president then added, without elaborating, that maybe we'll have another chance.

I started out as a crew chief on the old Hueys. Because of the organization I was in, I got to sit up front a number of times and I always thought, This is pretty cool. I liked aviation and flying and I got my initial private pilot's license while I was in the Army stationed in Colorado. They had a flying club at the airfield and that's where I got my pilot's license. This was just a private pilot, fixed-wing, license, for flying things like a Cessna 150 or 172. After that though, I decided I wanted to be a pilot for the military. This is 1968, we're right in the middle of Vietnam and I applied to Officer Candidate School and was accepted. I went to Fort Sill, Oklahoma in March of 1968; OCS was a six-month course. Initially, I was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the US Army Artillery. From there, I went directly to flight school.
