KOLKATA: Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) has received cumulative orders from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal for about 25 million LED lamps. It is also in talks with leading banks in India for replacing air-conditioning at their ATMs. EESL Managing Director Saurabh Kumar told ET that the company brought down prices from Rs 38 in Rs 310 for a 9-watt lamp in 2014 to September last year. "We can offer LED lamps at prices that are the lowest globally. This has led to interest among neighbouring countries; they want EESL to follow a similar LED lamp distribution programme there," Kumar said. He said EESL would be distributing 10 million lamps each in Sri Lanka and Nepal and another 1 million in Bhutan. "In Bangladesh, we will be involved in a project funded by the Indian government that involves outdoor and street lighting programmes," he added.

It is about combating illegal immigration, which has already cost the lives of thousands, and about replacing it by a regulated system of legal admissions, combined with humane living conditions, assured by the EU in third countries." Last year's EU migration deal with Turkey - which includes provisions on sending back asylum seekers who came to Europe via that country - has sharply cut the numbers arriving, and the paper said it should serve as a blueprint for the future. The Turkey agreement has, however, been criticized by rights groups as cutting corners on human rights and for bumpy implementation they say has put people's lives at risk. The paper said extending the options for deportation of asylum seekers would discourage people-smuggling. The EU would also provide funds to improve conditions for refugees and migrants sent back to third countries.

Customers who are experiencing keyboard problems should visit an Apple Store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. In most cases, Apple is offering repairs and replacements for affected users, especially those who have verifiable hardware problems related to skipping keys, but some MacRumors readers have needed to go through several replacement machines to find a keyboard that doesn't experience issues. Keyboard replacements are also not a simple matter on a machine as complex as the MacBook Pro, and users should expect repairs or replacements to take multiple days. According to reports from customers who have sought repairs, Apple is outright replacing most Touch Bar models while sending non-Touch Bar models out for repairs.

Remember when Microsoft announced the end of the Surface 3 tablet several months ago ? Back in late January, the firm reportedly made good on that promise. Now, the Surface Pro 3 has gone missing from Microsoft Stores online, TechRadar has found. Searching the firms webpages in the US, UK and Australia, the Surface Pro 3 is not available for purchase from the Microsoft Store. Links found via Google (US-only link) point to still-running webpages for the product, but buy links now redirect to the Microsoft Stores homepage as of this writing. Digging a bit further following this discovery, a few lesser-known (and therefore more difficult to trust) news websites reported the Surface Pro 3s departure back as far as January 30, days after Microsofts January 26 earnings call in which it mentioned the Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 replacing the Surface 3 specifically in its lineup.

R.S. 17: hybrid V6 power Under the new bodywork, the re-engineered 90-degreeRE17hybrid V6 spins at up to 15,000rpm and generates more than 900bhp, although 950bhp should be on the cards towards the end of the season, says Rémi Taffin, the team’s engine director. The turbocharged unit continues to use pre-chamber ignition, whereby a small amount of fuel is ignited before the main engine chamber in order to achieve more uniform combustion, but Renault is yet to adopt the split turbo setup pioneered by rival Mercedes. Power is sent through an eight-speed semi-automatic titanium gearbox and the brakeslarger than last season’s – are from Brembo. With an overall weight of 722kg, including driver, cameras and ballast, the RS17’s power-to-weight ratio will be fearsome, at over 1300bhp per ton. R.S. 17 aerodynamics: 30% more downforce The aerodynamic changes really add up, too, and so the RS17, which will be driven by Nico Hülkenberg (replacing Kevin Magnussen) and Jolyon Palmer, generates 30 per cent more aerodynamic downforce than its predecessor.

But they said they expected the aid freeze to be temporary. The halt in assistance, which has included salaries, training, ammunition and in some cases guided anti-tank missiles, is a response to jihadist attacks and has nothing to do with U.S. President Donald Trump replacing Barack Obama in January, two U.S. officials familiar with the CIA-led program said . Interestingly, a new narrative taking shape blames an apparent militant attack on so-called Syrian rebel groups carried out by members formerly of Al-Nusra Front ( now of Jabhat Fateh al-Sham), a known al Qaeda's affiliate. In July of 2015, we at 21WIRE reported the following developments taking place inside Syria: ...it was reported that the ‘Army of Islamoperating in Damascus, executed members of ISIS – that’s right, Sunnis militants taking out their own. The Gulf State backed ‘army’ is comprised of 50 or so groups , including members of ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra the Syrian branch of Al Qaeda and the Washington supported FSA rebels, the so-calledmoderates’ that the US is still collaborating with in Syria.

Does that mean you are committed to doing away with business rates and replacing them with something else? That is why I said we needed to look at business tax of the hole. We have to collect taxes to pay for public services and investment in infrastructure and skills that business need.

Iran's supreme leader on Tuesday delivered some of his harshest remarks to date against Israel, describing the Jewish state as a "fake nation" in a "dirty chapter" of history. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told a pro-Palestinian gathering in Tehran that Israel is a "cancerous tumor" that requires a step by step" treatment, according to the Associated Press. The creation of Israel is "one of the dirty chapters of history that will be closed, with the grace of God," Khamenei said, arguing that the Jewish state was formed by bringing Jews from around the world to the Middle East to settle Palestinian land–a process that he described as replacing the region's "true entity." In his 33-minute speech, Khamenei called for all Muslims to support the Palestinians and "resistance" movements like Hamas and Hezbollah, terrorist organizations that receive backing from Tehran and are committed to Israel's destruction.

We’ve focused on a handful of powerful stories that bring to life the work NAAEE does – such as the incredible impact of replacing 850,000 lunch trays with compostable trays – as well as the resources they offer anyone developing an environmental literacy and civic engagement program. The 360-degree image viewer captures the essence of what these individuals and organizations are working to conserve. We were looking for an elegant but subtle way to convey the overall sentiment of the stories.

Our mutual goal was to build a platform that was long-lasting and adaptable, so NAAEE can continue to showcase various types of media to bring more stories to life. NAAEE’s work with more than 20,000 educators reaches millions of people across different organizations and communities every day.

President Trump sought to put more than a week of turmoil in his foreign policy team to rest as he selected Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as his new National Security Advisor, replacing the ousted Mike Flynn. McMaster, a widely respected strategist had been in charge of developing the Army's plans to address future threats. (He was named to the TIME 100 in 2014. ) Trump had interviewed McMaster and other finalists at Mar-a-Lago this weekend, announcing the selection Monday to the press, just days after his first selection for the post declined the job. It capped a weekend in which Trump participated in a couple rounds of golf, attending a pair of fundraisers at his private club, and holding meetings with staff on the future of Obamacare and tax reform. The White House has promised developments on both of those legislative fronts in the coming weeks, but it is as yet unclear the extent of its coordination with Capitol Hill Republicans.

Rebel officials said that no official explanation had been given for the move this month following the Fateh al-Sham assault, though several said they believed the main objective was to prevent arms and cash falling into militant hands. But they said they expected the aid freeze to be temporary. The halt in assistance, which has included salaries, training, ammunition and in some cases guided anti-tank missiles, is a response to the Fateh al-Sham attacks and has nothing to do with US President Donald Trump replacing Barack Obama in January, two US officials familiar with the CIA-led programme told Reuters. The freeze reflects the troubles facing Free Syrian Army (FSA) rebels in the almost six-year-old revolt against Assad, who now appears militarily unassailable in his core western region largely thanks to direct intervention on his side by Russia and Iran.

Samsung may be looking toward selling unused Galaxy Note 7 components inside refurbished phones, replacing the battery tech inside to ensure its repurposed devices won't catch fire. South Korea site Hankyung says the company is looking to minimize the profit damage of the Note 7 battery scandal and is conscious of the environmental impact of not using the Galaxy Note 7 tech it still has in stock. According to the report, Samsung will reduce the battery capacity in the phone and replace it with new technology to ensure its safe to use in the refurbished devices. The Note 7 originally had a 3,500mAh cell, but this refurbished device will have a 3,000mAh to 3,200mAh battery inside instead. Unexpected comeback The repackaged devices will then be sold in emerging markets such as India and Vietnam. Whether the report is accurate or not is currently unclear (there's no specific source cited by the article), but it does sound like a way to use the leftover tech from the Galaxy Note 7 problem.
