The car was picked up by Nottingham City Council's community protection team from a city centre street today (Tuesday, February 21).

MUMBAI: N Chandrasekaran took over as chairman of Tata Sons on Tuesday, pledging to work closely with group business leaders and maximise shareholder returns at the 150-year-old conglomerate that was rocked by a battle for control after predecessor Cyrus Mistry was ousted in October last year. Chandrasekaran, popularly known as Chandra, started the day by casting his vote in the Mumbai municipal polls before heading to TCS to pass on the CEO baton to Rajesh Gopinathan. After that, he went to Bombay House — the headquarters of the $103-billion Tata Group — where he was greeted by chairman emeritus Ratan Tata. Both of them garlanded the busts of Tata Group founder Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata and former chairman JRD Tata. “I am very proud of being part of the Tata family and I look forward to working with all the group entities, bringing the group together to make an impact both in terms of business and also in terms of the society, at large,” said Chandrasekaran, the first non-Parsi and third non-Tata chairman of the group.

The incessant rain in California for the last several weeks is just a taste of what's to come in the formerly drought-plagued state, says Rachel Becker in The Verge . Snip: The most recent was a series of storms that lasted for a near-biblical 43 days between 1861 and 1862, creating a vast lake where California’s Central Valley had been. Floodwaters drowned thousands of people, hundreds of thousands of cattle, and forced the state’s government to move from Sacramento to San Francisco. More than 150 years have passed since California’s last, great flood — and a team of researchers with the US Geological Survey have predicted what kind of damage a similar flood would cause today. Their simulation, called the ARkStorm, anticipates that a stretch of the Central Valley 300 miles long by 20 miles wide would be underwater. Cities up and down the coast of California would flood.

We are fearful that our family and neighbors might be barred from entering the U.S. by a Muslim ban or might lose their access to health care if the Affordable Care Act is recklessly repealed. We are worried that the political system now serves corporate interests and the Presidents far-flung (but undisclosed) business interests, not the interests of the people or their nation. We are alarmed that people we know and love wont be treated equally or fairly under the new Administration. The Tea Party consisted of people angry about their own perceived situation; the resistance is people alarmed and fearful about what might happen to others. The best distinction between the two movements, though, is the one that is most important to our President: crowd size. The largest Tea Party rallies reported were between 150,000 and 250,000 people, depending on the source.

leaders still viewregime change” or mass destruction as the only acceptable outcomes for countries that challenge U.S. dominance. Students of history, not least 150 million Russians, will remember that another serial aggressor offered Russia a “deal” like that in 1939, and that Russia’s complicity with Germany over Poland only set the stage for the total devastation of Poland, Russia and Germany. One former U.S. official who has consistently warned of the danger of U.S. aggression against Iran is retired General Wesley Clark. In his 2007 memoir, A Time To Lead , General Clark explained that his fears were rooted in ideas embraced by hawks in Washington since the end of the Cold War. Clark recalls Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Paul Wolfowitz’s response in May 1991 when he congratulated him on his role in the Gulf War. “We screwed up and left Saddam Hussein in power.

The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) has conducted more than 20 first searches at households of Ukrainian citizens, who are in close contact with representatives of the Russian special services. Unfortunately, we know there is a vast number of people in Ukraine, who are holding key positions and those who are not holding such positions, they are in a very close contact for some reason [...] some of them had 150 contacts each with this Moscow's agent in a short period of time. More than 20 searches were held yesterday, and we already have the first results, Hrytsak said during a joint briefing with the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko in Kyiv on Feb. 21. The post Hrytsak: SBU searches dozens of Ukrainian households suspected of ties with Russia appeared first on KyivPost .

SwiftKey is celebrating a milestone by reaching support for 150 languages. Think that's too many? The Ethnologue says there are more than 7000 languages spoken in the world today, so 150 will seem like a teeny number by comparison, except that it should cover a huge portion of the Earth's population because many of the other languages have less than 1000 native speakers. For a bit of comparison, Google's GBoard seems to be around the same number on my phone, offering a choice of 149 languages and dialects.

While the Sapphire Reserve does have a $450 annual fee that puts it in line with other premium travel rewards cards , it also comes with a $300 annual travel fee credit that applies automatically to a very wide variety of purchases. This effectively brings the annual fee down to $150, and since everything from airfare and hotel stays to tolls and parking fees are eligible, it won't be hard to use it over the course of a year. The Chase Sapphire Reserve's travel credit applies to all kinds of charges, including hotel stays. Image courtesy of the Park Hyatt Maldives. Of course, the 3x earning rate for all travel and dining purchases is another main draw of the Sapphire Reserve Card. Since TPG values Ultimate Rewards points at 2.1 cents apiece , you're looking at a 6.3% return on these purchases — and, again, Chase has a very generous definition of what counts as travel .
