Dr. Dre made the official announcement this morning via Instagram. News Twitter Facebook Continuing the elongated marketing campaign that’s been grabbing headlines since late this past summer, the video announcement came in the form of a advertising spot with an actor presenting an apparent testimonial for a spoof pharmaceutical aimed a treating the fake disease “Atrox Rithimus.”Partway through the video, the actor reveals what pretty much everyone who’s been following the campaign had already figured out: Yes, Revival is actually the name of Eminem’s new album, and no, we’re not going to get any additional details on it before it comes out.

Tags Tech Industry Car Tech Mobile Apps Roadshow Elon Musk Tesla Share your voice 0 Post a comment Tesla leaks are reportedly leading to employees being barred from using Blind. Nick Miotke/Roadshow Tesla has blocked employees from using anonymous workplace social network app Blind following leaks about the company, Blind has confirmed.Blind has said Tesla is blocking verification emails from its employees’ addresses so they can’t validate their accounts. “We first found out about this issue through emails from Tesla employees who were trying to sign up on Blind but were not receiving verification emails from us,” Curie Kim from Blind told CNET in an email Tuesday afternoon. “We looked into the verification rates for Tesla and there was a surge in verification failure on our end starting on May 4th, 2019.” “From these facts, we can confirm that Tesla is preventing employees from accessing Blind,” Kim said. She explained it was similar to when Uber blocked Blind usage by employees back in 2017 after whistleblower Susan Fowler spoke up about the Uber working climate. Kim said more employees from more than 40,000 companies are using Blind, including 55,000 Microsoft staffers, 38,000 from Amazon, 16,000 from Google, 13,000 from Facebook, 11,000 from Uber and 10,000 from Apple. “Tesla is the only company that is blocking its own employees from accessing or signing up on Blind,” she said. As spotted earlier by Verdict, a Tesla employee had posted publicly on Blind in May about being unable to use the app. “Why is Tesla opposed to their employees using Blind? We can’t access the app on the company network,” the post says. “Have to use phone data instead. And it seems they’re blocking emails from Blind too. I told a couple of co-workers about the app but they haven’t been able to receive a verification code to complete the sign-up process!” Variety said Tesla staff are also unable to use Blind via Tesla’s Wi-Fi network. Blind requires users to verify their account with a company email address but then keeps their identity anonymous in order to give “an equitable voice to everyone.” “Through anonymity and community, we aim to flatten corporate hierarchy and remove professional barriers in order to initiate open conversations and create transparency,” Blind says. The app features multiple channels for users: topics channels, private company channels, Tech Lounge and Startup Lounge. Tesla didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has meanwhile been trying to psyche his employees up to hit delivery targets, reportedly sending out an email last week top push hard while demand is high. Reports say Tesla’s current quarter could eclipse its 90,700 deliveries record. Originally published June 4, 2:18 p.m. PT. Update, 3:49 p.m.: Adds confirmation from Blind.

In a fresh twist in the tale that is set to question the integrity of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), it has been found that top RBI officials allowed certain banks to lend to Vijay Mallya’s Kingfisher Airlines (KFA) violating its own asset classifications guidelines. Vijay Mallya blames everybody except himself for Kingfisher Airlines disasterAccording to RBI’s assets classification norms on bank loans, there is no risk in lending to a firm whose assets fall under standard assets category. However, if a company’s assets come under sub-standard assets category, the firm gets declared as a non-performing asset (NPA).In 2008, during a routine annual financial inspection by the RBI of a Kolkata-based bank, the inspection team found that KFA was falling under the category of sub-standard assets. Clearly, that reflected the airline’s poor status of assets classifications and loan repayment for getting next fresh round of loans, the Pioneer reported, citing sources.”As per the RBI guidelines, we were conducting a routine exercise and inspecting bank books at one of the centres in a PSB, headquartered in Kolkata. During the AFI, we had observed that the total loan amount of Rs 3,000 crore, which had been provided to Kingfisher Airlines until 2008, was not falling under standard asset category. So, we had decided that the airlines firm should have declared as an NPA so as to stop any further financial assistance to be extended to the firm,” a source told the Pioneer.However, just when the inspection team decided to take steps to stop any fresh loan to KFA and declare the airline’s existing loan as NPAs, the team received a directive from top RBI officials, asking them not to turn the loan as NPA. And that, in turn, ensured the now defunct airline continued to get loans from the consortium of lenders led by State Bank of India (SBI).The source declined to disclose the name of the bank, but said the inspection was a routine affair of the RBI and the inspection team had acted as per their superiors’ order.”Thereafter, the above loan continued to fall under the category of a standard asset which was the gateway to get further assistance and thus the Mallya-owned firm remained eligible for the next round of fresh loans by the consortium of lenders led by SBI. As a result, the firm was extended several fresh rounds of loan amounting to a total of Rs 6,000 crore over and over again for years,” sources said.A RBI official, on the condition of anonymity, confirmed the development and said: “Had the RBI paid heed to the suggestions of the internal team and turned the already sanctioned loan as NPA, the firm would not have been able to go for a fresh round of loans. And thus our banks, which faced with huge NPAs as of today, would have been saved.”The airline managed to get most of the loans between 2006 and 2009 when Vijay Mallya was also a Rajya Sabha MP and reportedly lobbied the then governments for the revival of KFA.

Further to that, there is scope for firms headquartered in India to improve the match between their workforce and the markets that will drive future growth in top and bottom line,” said Anurag Malik, Partner – People Advisory Services, EY India.

[Representational Image]MANJUNATH KIRAN/AFP/Getty ImagesThe report also said that it is crucial for global companies to ask the question — where it makes the most sense to establish their workforce.However, at present very few companies have the confidence to recruit more talent from where the market demand is high due to hard costs and organizational drain caused by fragmenting their talent base into multiple locations. 10 tips to optimize your LinkedIn profile Close

The rainy season may affect the immune system, so it is important to keep yourself hydrated and eat lots of green vegetables, says an expert.Here are a few tips:* Go green: Asparagus, cucumber, broccoli, leafy vegetables, zucchini and green vegetables are ideal. They have enough liquid content to keep the body hydrated and enough protein to provide energy. They keep you relaxed without causing any digestive irritations. * Avoid cold water: What that ice cold water does is effectively douse the digestive fires.
