Oprah Winfrey makes Stella McCartney scream at Paris show

PARIS — Words were almost inaudible amid the screams at the Paris Fashion Week show where Stella McCartney presented a collection that toyed with draping and upcycling.Such exuberant outbursts would usually come from the designer’s fans. But it was McCartney herself who caused the commotion when Oprah Winfrey appeared backstage at her show on Monday.Here are some highlights of fall-winter 2019 displays:JUST SCREAMWinfrey managed to utter “It was beautiful. It was fun,” amid the noise and cameras.McCartney, a global fashion icon and the daughter of former-Beatle Paul McCartney was evidently humbled as she was jostled backstage while standing alongside Winfrey, a global entertainment icon.“I’m dying,” exclaimed McCartney.Winfrey, who’s rarely seen on the fashion circuit, smiled as McCartney lavished praise.McCartney said she advised her models, including Natalia Vodianova, “Just bow down,” if you “walk past her.”Winfrey arrived flanked by a bodyguard, race car driver Lewis Hamilton and Edward Enninful, British Vogue’s first black editor-in-chief.___A STELLA COLLECTIONStrong shoulders with draping spilling down and pops of vivid colour made up the style formula for McCartney’s show at Paris’ ornate Opera Garnier.The British-American designer said she aimed this season to project a “powerful persona.” Her chicly deployed collection succeeded in towing the line between strength and the softness that defines McCartney’s designs.Structure was everywhere. Tight waists were cinched with on-trend belts or geometric panels.But draping was used sensitively to break up any harsh lines.Fall-winter was all about the shoulders, which came peaked in the style of the late-1970s or with an extraneous layer of material for a stylish Japanese feel.A vivid red gown with a cross-over-style torso and fluttery waist tassels perfected the Asian musing. Contrasting thigh-high black boots gave the same look some spice.___GREEN FASHIONA vacuum-packed oak tree leaf was included inside invitations to eco-warrior McCartney’s show.It was done to promote a campaign to protect the Leuser Ecosystem in Indonesia. Called “There She Grows”, the campaign invites the designer’s friends and members of the public to dedicate a tree to raise awareness.Participants so far include Gwyneth Paltrow, Pink, Drew Barrymore, Jimmy Fallon and Rooney Mara.The ecological references by the designer, who uses no fur and only “vegetarian leather”, continued in the collection through lashings of greens and browns in the colour palette, and the use of upcycled material to make dresses.“We try to bring the environment into the conversation now, more and more,” McCartney told the AP.Ecology has been a theme this season: Kenzo sent out an invite last week with tomato seeds embedded in the plantible paper.___VALLI’S SPACE SHIPA slanted wall with trapezoid-shaped window holes and sanitized lighting evoked the mood of a spaceship for Italian designer Giambattista Valli.Adding to the futuristic mood were powder-colored heels with shaggy fringing that evoked Chewbacca from “Star Wars.” There were also sheeny black high-waisted pants.Aside from these references, the fall-winter collection was predictable territory.Valli’s signature floral prints and unfurling short silk gowns were ubiquitous and mixed in with the season’s top trends.Jabot collars and tulle neck detailing ticked the 1970s trend box.___SACAI GOES DARKA darker and more aggressive mood than usual befell Sacai, one of Japan’s most popular luxury brands, and it was not just in the colours.Warrior-like waists in black and grey were shown cinched with thick belts or extra layers of fabric.Patent leather shoes sported pointed spikes and studded straps that resembled armour.Large round shoulders created the effect of a padded silhouette, evoking the traditional layering of an Asian fighter.The styles worked well thanks to contrasting, chic touches, such as large cream fur coat cuffs that added luxuriance.___Thomas Adamson can be followed at Twitter.com/ThomasAdamson_KThomas Adamson, The Associated Press read more

Sudan UN welcomes agreement on implementation of pact on Abyei dispute

13 April 2011The United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) today welcomed the decision by both sides in the disputed area of Abyei to form a joint committee to oversee the implementation of an earlier agreement on the withdrawal of unauthorized armed forces from the area. Meeting in Khartoum, both parties agreed on a Joint Technical Committee (JTC) to implement of the Kadugli Agreement reached in January, which calls for the deployment of Joint Integrated Units (JIUs) from the armed forces of the northern-based Government of Sudan and the Government of Southern Sudan, which administers the south.Under the Kadugli Agreement, JIUs should not include members of units involved in the 2008 clashes in Abyei or elements that may have a conflict of interest regarding the Abyei dispute.The JTC is scheduled to have its first meeting in Abyei on Monday and UNMIS will provide the necessary assistance required to facilitate the implementation of decisions agreed upon today.Recent unrest in Abyei has centred around tensions between the Misseriya and Ngok Dinka ethnic communities, with disputes over land rights to the area.The tensions have been exacerbated by the controversy over a referendum that would give residents of Abyei a chance to decide whether to remain part of the north or join the Southern Sudan, which voted in January to secede. read more

Dennis Nilsen Britains second worst serial killer dies in prison aged 72

Nilsen, originally from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, was a former police officer and civil servant who previously worked as a butcher and is second only to Harold Shipman in terms of the number of murders committed and was described as the “British Jeffrey Dahmer”.He was convicted of six counts of murder and two of attempted murder at the Old Bailey and jailed in 1983, with a recommendation he serve a minimum of 25 years. Dennis Nilsen He told an interviewer how he enjoyed caring for the bodies, dressing them and undressing them and recounted in horrific detail how they were then cut up.While some remains were inexpertly flushed away by Nilsen, others were stored under his floorboards and in cupboards for many months, meaning detectives were greeted with the foetid stench of decay when they first searched his flat.He said: “The bodies are all gone. There is nothing left. But I still feel a spiritual communion with these people.”His house of horrors in Muswell Hill has been on the market several times since and is still occupied today, with flowers visible in the attic window.The sentence given to him in 1983 was later upgraded to a whole-life tarriff.A spokesman for the Prison Service said: “Dennis Andrew Nilsen, date of birth November 23 1945, died in custody at HMP Full Sutton on Saturday, May 12 2018. The serial killer Dennis Nilsen, known as the Muswell Hill Murderer, has died in prison aged 72. Nilsen, who admitted slaughtering young men during a killing spree in the 1970s and 1980s, was jailed for life in 1983. The former civil servant, 72, executed and dismembered many of his victims at his home in Muswell Hill, north London before having sex with their corpses. He is believed to have killed as many as 15 young men, most of them homeless homosexuals, at his north London home.After luring his victims to their death, Nilsen would often sit with their corpses for days before dismembering them.His warped crimes were only detected by chance – when a drain outside his home on Cranley Gardens, Muswell Hill, became blocked by the human remains he had tried to flush away.The Prison Service confirmed that the infamous killer died at HMP Full Sutton on Saturday, 34 years into his life sentence. It is understood that authorities believe Nilsen died from natural causes.Nilsen would often befriend his victims in the pubs and bars of London, before offering to entertain them at his flat.Once there, many were strangled to death – sometimes after they had lost consciousness – and he would then defile their remains.A grim interview, aired in 1993, saw the bespectacled Scottish murderer describe the macabre scenes that followed. “As with all deaths in custody, there will be an independent investigation by the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman.” Nilsen was jailed in 1983Credit:PA Dennis Nilsen gave a television interview in 1993Credit:Central Broadcasting ITV Dennis Nilsen in 1993 Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Technology leadership to advance mining in Africa

first_imgLast week saw the annual Mining Indaba conference in Cape Town. Shall says “mining in South Africa today, is tougher and costlier than ever and industry investments are flowing outwards instead of inwards. This, coupled with a combination of deteriorating reserves, rising labour costs and regulatory uncertainty just to mention a few challenges, caused major miners to contemplate business in the country.“South Africa is home to the world’s largest platinum, chrome, manganese reserves and the source of one-third of gold ever mined in the world. With the pending transformation legislation, some of the top mining executives are appealing for more support and if we consider this situation from the point of view of mining equipment, we identify the following trends emerging as demands in the mining sector:Delivering the same objectives with a reduced number of vehiclesIncreasing loads for each of the vehiclesImproving conditions for the machinery operatorsReducing operational costsComplying with latest environmental norms and regulations.”“Heavy duty machinery and equipment in the mining sector are becoming more complex and require the highest levels of professionalism from operators and servicing technicians”, says Tendani Ndwamise, Direct Sector B2B Marketer at Shell South Africa, “Breakdowns in machinery can cause unexpected downtime and increase costs incurred by fleet operators. This is where Shell Commercial Lubricants can make a difference to help achieve maximum effectiveness of the equipment and increase life cycle of the vehicles.”Over the years, Shell’s Lube Expert as well as Shell’s global partnership with original engine manufacturers in the mining sector, have made Shell best placed to identify trends, understand sectorial needs, and respond with relevant and value adding service offerings.Despite wide availability of various Genuine Part Oils (GPOs), businesses are not always able to make full use of the machinery available in various markets. Close collaboration and experience exchange between leading OEMs and lubricant manufacturers can allow the parties to find a mutually beneficial solution resulting in an increased effectiveness of the equipment on offer and growth of the popularity of the brands of both manufacturers.Close collaboration amongst all the parties helps to achieve maximum profit and effectiveness of the implemented solutions. Collaborative approach to the application of lubricants allows a business to achieve additional profits. Shell Commercial Lubricants #1 Global lubricant supplier as per 2016 Kline report of OEMs and customers.“We create opportunities for technical dialogue to win strategic partnerships”, adds Ndwamise. Collaboration with leading OEMs allows Shell Lubricants to participate in the development of new equipment, lubricants, and fuels as part of a single process. These processes are needed to achieve the main objective and to help achieve maximum performance of the equipment that has a “knock-on effect” on the effectiveness of business operations.“We add specialists, Shell Lube Experts, who are responsible for evaluating performance of the equipment, selection of lubricants as well as ensuring correct application of the lubricant. This means that a field specialist actively participates in the life cycle of lubricants, from its development to implementation” says Ndwamise.last_img read more

According to NASA Sub Morgans Contract Was Never in Real Jeopardy

first_imgUniversities Space Research Association (USRA)Despite recent reports to the contrary, Morgan State University’s largest research contract in school history is not in any imminent danger of being revoked or restricted.“From the tone and specificity of the issues outlined in the USRA letter, it appears Morgan is confronting a raft of federal complaints regarding virtually every aspect of its administration of the program,” read a commentary in the Baltimore Sun published June 30. “Unless something dramatic changes, the school will either have the program’s funds revoked or the award won’t be renewed when the current agreement expires,” it continued.The commentary refers to a $28.5 million research contract awarded to Morgan State University by the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) in May of 2011. USRA is a subcontractor of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. The contract is scheduled to be renewed at the end of five years.The USRA sent a letter to Morgan State – which in 2006 became a research institution with a Carnegie Classification – in March of 2014 outlining various issues they had with Morgan’s administration of the contract.“Performance issues include, but are not limited to, failure to make transfers of researchers to MSU in a reasonably timely manner, hiring and reporting delays, slow response to requests for corrections to performance problems, and lack of plan to engage more students in research related to Goddard,” wrote Patricia Artimovich, director of Contracts and Compliance with the USRA in a segment of her letter to Morgan.According to Morgan State University President Dr. David Wilson, all the issues outlined by the USRA are being addressed by the school.Morgan State University“We have addressed the concerns raised in the letter from the USRA and we did get a letter back from the USRA indicating that they were pleased with the approach that we are taking,” said Dr. Wilson.According to Wilson, a significant Information Technology (IT) issue has been resolved, additional staff has been hired, 10 students are now interning at NASA and additional training is taking place to resolve the grievances.“Pleased,” may not be a fully accurate depiction of the USRA’s disposition in reference to Morgan’s administration of the multi-million dollar contract. But, it seems clear the organization believes the university is on track to fully remedy the concerns outlined in that March letter and the contract – despite the assertions of some – was never in any real jeopardy.“I don’t think we were ever at the point where we thought that (termination) was a serious consideration,” said Donald Kniffen, president and CEO of Universities Space Research Association.“If there had been no move to correct the problems that might have been on the table, but there has been considerable effort to try to solve the problem…to address the residual issues. There’s still a long ways to go and we’re working together with them (Morgan) to complete that process well in advance of the time when this contract comes to an end,” Kniffen added.Dr. Wilson, whose tenure as president began July 1, 2010, pledged among other things to double the number of research contracts and grants to the university in 10 years. The acquisition of the USRA contract is a significant step in that direction, yet Wilson acknowledges Morgan is still in the “embryonic stages” of being a nationally recognized research institution.“Johns Hopkins receives more federal grant contracts in one year than all of the HBCU’s combined. It just shows that there needs to be more investment in these institutions,” said Wilson who rejects the suggestion that he believes Morgan should be held to a different standard than other universities.“Never did I once advocate or would I ever advocate that there should be a separate standard for Morgan versus other research institutions. We are one of the youngest research institutions in the country…as a result of that one has to expect growing pains,” Wilson added.“It feels good to have this pop up early in our maturation so that we understand exactly now what we need to do to put in place an infrastructure so that we at Morgan can administer a $250 million contract. That’s our goal.”last_img read more

White Supremacist Pleads Guilty to NYC Sword Killing

first_imgBy Jim Mustian, The Associated PressA White supremacist pleaded guilty Jan. 23 to killing a Black man with a sword as part of an attack that authorities said was intended to incite a race war in the United States.James Jackson admitted to fatally stabbing 66-year-old Timothy Caughman in March 2017 after stalking a number of Black men in New York City.James Jackson, right, confers with his lawyer during a hearing in criminal court, Wednesday, Jan. 23 in New York. Jackson, a White supremacist, pled guilty to killing a Black man with a sword as part of a racist plot that prosecutors described as a hate crime. He faces life in prison when he is sentenced on Feb. 13. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)Jackson, who is White, told police he traveled from Baltimore to carry out the attack because New York is the media capital of the world. He said the slaying was intended to be practice for further assaults on Black people.Jackson, 30, faces life in prison without parole when he is sentenced Feb. 13 after pleading guilty to six counts, including murder and a hate crime charge.He spoke in a calm and collected manner as Judge Laura Ward questioned him in Manhattan criminal court, saying “that’s true” when asked whether he was armed with a sword and two knives when he began hunting Black people on the streets of Midtown.The plea came several weeks after Ward ruled that jurors would hear Jackson’s detailed confession if the case had gone to trial. Jackson’s attorneys said he pleaded guilty against their advice, aware he would face a mandatory life sentence.Caughman, who was remembered as a gentleman and a good neighbor, was alone and collecting bottles for recycling when he was attacked from behind with a sword. He staggered, bleeding, into a police station and died at a hospital.Cyrus Vance, the Manhattan district attorney, called the plea a landmark conviction, saying it marked New York’s first prosecution under the state’s “murder as a crime of terrorism” statute. But he warned that it would not “reverse the alarming rise of White nationalism in America.”“This was more than a murder case,” Vance said outside the courtroom. “This was a type of cruelty that needs to be treated with the most serious of our laws.”Jackson is from Baltimore and a veteran who served in Afghanistan. Family friends said previously that the allegations were out of line with how he was raised, in a tolerant and liberal middle-class family.In a 2017 jailhouse interview with the Daily News, Jackson said he intended the stabbing as “a practice run” in a mission to deter interracial relationships.He said he would rather have killed “a young thug” or “a successful older Black man with blondes … people you see in Midtown. These younger guys that put White girls on the wrong path.”last_img read more

UPS Adds 3 Hydrogen Fuel Cell Semis to Its Fleet

first_imgStay on target NASA Satellites Spot Largest Seaweed Bloom in the WorldWeird ‘Plasticrust’ Caused by Pollution Forms on Portuguese … Over the past few years, UPS has been taking some important steps toward greening up its fleet of delivery vehicles. They’ve rolled out three-wheeled e-Bikes and electric vans with launchpads for drones.Now UPS is adding three zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell big rigs to their operation. The trucks will be hitting the road toward the end of this year.The trucks themselves are the result of partnership between Toyota (who supplied the fuel cell know-how) and Kenworth (who took care of integrating the tech into a semi design). This year’s rollout follows a pilot project that kicked off in 2017.They’re built for drayage duties — short-range hauling between, say, a ship or plane and a warehouse or inland distribution center. Their electric motors are capable of pulling loads up to 80,000 pounds.The Toyota/Kenworth trucks can cruise for around 300 miles on its fuel cell stacks and battery pack. Toyota says that’s about twice the mileage the average drayage truck would cover in a single day.When it’s time to refuel, drivers can head to one of two new stations being built by Shell to support the project.There’s a huge opportunity here to reduce harmful emissions. In the U.S. alone there are more than 43,000 diesel-powered trucks doing this type of hauling every day.Thanks to the handy formulas posted by DSN Chemical Transportation, it’s pretty easy to figure out how much carbon they’re producing. For a quick and dirty example, let’s use DSN’s figure of 0.46 KG per mile. At 150 miles per day times 43,000 trucks, that’s almost 3,000,000 KG of carbon.UPS isn’t the only company that will be deploying these trucks. Toyota’s keeping four for themselves. The trucks are part of Toyota’s plan to completely eliminate carbon emissions from their operations at the Port of Long Beach by the year 2050.More on Geek.com:Amazon Pledges to Make Half Its Shipments Carbon-Neutral by 2030Stop Shaming Meal Kits — They’re Greener Than You ThinkUPS to Transport Medical Samples Via Dronelast_img read more

Wednesday…Senate report for submission Thursday Fresh facts on how N60 billion pension funds were diverted by officials of the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) have been revealed This is coming as the Senate Committee investigating the management of pension funds in the country has concluded arrangements to submit its report to the Senators Former Director Pension Account of OHCSF Dr Shaibu Sani Teidi told journalists in Abuja that contrary to the claim that N35 billion was involved in the HCSF pension funds scam over N60 billion was actually at stake Teidi spoke at a press conference where he denied a report that he bribed the Senate Committee probing pension fund management with $3 billion Teidi noted that he recovered over N40 billion diverted pension funds when he was director of Pension Account and gave the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) the list of people who perpetrated the fraud He said that when “some other monies also recovered are added to the N40 billion we should be talking about over N60 billion diverted pension funds” Apart from submitting the names of pension funds fraudsters to the EFCC he said that he also wrote the National Security Adviser (NSA) on the issue Teidi said that the documents he submitted to the Senate probe panel contained over N40 billion stolen pension funds “Some forces are bent on pulling me down I don’t know why the EFCC has refused to act on the “elaborate details I furnished the Commission to aide investigation by officials” he stated Teidi said that it is painful that all the money he recovered was “frittered away in the name of biometric data capturing exercise” Biometric data capturing exercise he said was “a drain pipe an exercise to siphon billions of pension funds abroad” He said “What is involved in the fraud is over N60 billion The paper I submitted to the Senate committee contained over N40 billion but it was suppressed “I gave the EFCC list of names with which the funds were looted and forwarded the same list of the NSA “The paper I presented was not considered and the people whose names appear in the list are walking free “I tendered how over N40 billion was recovered and also tendered how the money was stolen and diverted to private pockets especially through the so called biometric data capturing exercise” He noted that it was on record that in 2010 as director of Pension Account he ensured that no kobo was lost The NFL thinks you want to watch football games that already ended And it thinks you’ll pay $99 for the privilege That may sound strange but all evidence suggests that in fact hardcore football fans will leap at the opportunity NFL Game Pass announced Tuesday “consolidates” various football-streaming services from last season into what the league calls in a press release a “single-purchase premium video experience” For $99 fans can re-play any regular season game just after the final whistle blows They can also watch any game regular or postseason from 2009 onwards Note carefully the term “re-play” This package is solely for replays of games that are old the second they’re available on the service Using Game Pass might require diligently avoiding spoilers staying off social media during games and staying away from your phone too It would take a lot of work It doesn’t matter; people will pay In fact at $99 for the whole season many would say it’s a steal The explosion of fantasy football has made fans hungry for more video of every game every snap every touchdown The two leading daily fantasy sites DraftKings and FanDuel both of them no more than six years old are each already billion-dollar “unicorns” ESPN cut a major partnership deal this year with DraftKings; Yahoo meanwhile built and launched its own daily-fantasy platform The rush to monitor stats and update lineups has made every sports viewer an armchair scout-slash-general manager Thus watching a game live when it’s on the television is no longer enough Fantasy players demand video content analytics replays and expert analysis Paying for these features for many fantasy nuts can lead to real winnings Despite controversies over deflated balls concussions and other issues the NFL continues to mint money Its 32 teams divided up $72 billion in revenue last year and the revenue growth shows no signs of slowing If the NFL were a corporation tracked on the Fortune 500 it would land at No 380 Football fans have shown time and again that they want more football content and they want it now That’s the ethos behind NFL Now an ambitious new mobile platform the league launched before the start of last season It was a success By the time of the AFC and NFC Championship games 22 million devices had connected to the product The popularity of NFL Now has attracted big brand advertisers to the platform including Geico KFC Lexus and Coors Light All that led the NFL to bulk up the product for this season turning it into a "virtual network of digital programming that runs 24/7" in the NFLs own words It’s a lot of content and it suggests there’s no limit to the amount of football-related video fans will spend money on Indeed NFL digital chief Brian Rolapp who brokers these digital deals and spearheads the creation of platforms like NFL Now said as much in an extensive interview with Fortune last winter “The reality is on television right now theres NFL football and then theres everything else” he said “As far as I can tell football is the only sure bet on television” He’s probably right and the NFL is going to demonstrate it again by getting fans to pony up $99 for access to games that are already over Don’t forget this is a sports and media powerhouse that got Yahoo to pay a reported $20 million just for the rights to live-stream a single game this October and not a particularly exciting one at that Rolapp did say in his talk with Fortune last season that in its first year “the value proposition of NFL Now was hard to understand” for some fans “Its hard to represent with a pithy marketing message” he said Here’s an idea: Football football football eat it up yum Contact us at editors@timecomApple and Samsung have long been bitter rivals in the smartphone market with each able to claim an advantage over the other: The higher cost of Apple’s iPhones have helped the company enjoy wider profit margins while Samsung has historically clobbered Apple in terms of the number of devices shipped However that may no longer be the case Apple sold a record 745 million iPhones last quarter it said as part of its earnings report Tuesday A day later Samsung said it sold somewhere between 71 and 76 million smartphones That means there’s a decent chance Apple is now beating Samsung not only in profit margins but also in number of devices shipped Still some analysts are sowing doubt over whether that’s actually the case One research firm Counterpoint Research says Apple is now on top: It says Samsung only shipped 738 million devices last quarter Ben Barjarin an analyst with Creative Strategies and TIME columnist also gave the nod to Apple But another analyst Strategy Analytics has taken the middle road and called it a tie saying Apple and Samsung both shipped 745 million devices giving both companies an equal 196% share of the global smartphone market A tie game means we’re

clearly shows that under Akhilesh the incidence of riots has increased exponentially as there is an overall decrease in riots across the country To understand a little better how benevolent Akhilesh

privacy: What will it mean for Aadhaar WhatsApp cases (Representational Image Biodata being collected for Aadhaar cards Image via AP) Related News The Supreme Court of India in a historic judgment has held the right to privacy as an inherent fundamental right read into Article 21 of the Indian Constitution This article guarantees right to life and liberty and the Supreme Court’s latest verdict has said the ‘right to privacy is protected as an intrinsic part of the right to life and personal liberty under Article 21 and as a part of the freedoms guaranteed by Part III of the Constitution‘ While the judgment is being hailed as a historic one it will also have massive implication for other cases which are currently being heard in the Supreme Court This includes the Aadhaar case the WhatsApp privacy case still being heard in the Supreme Court In the judgment the Court also talks about informational privacy and what it means in the age of technology and a digital world The judgment reads “Informational privacy is a facet of the right to privacy The dangers to privacy inan age of information can originate not only from the state but from non-state actors as well” So the Supreme Court judgment has recognised that when it comes to privacy the state is not the only institution which poses danger rather there can be “non-state actors” too that need to be kept in consideration This is something privacy activists in India have been highlighting with the rise of social networks like Facebook and companies like Google Microsoft etc which have a strong control over user data The judgment adds the interpretation of the Constitution can’t be “frozen” in time and technological changes have created new concerns “The meaning of the Constitution cannot be frozen on the perspectives present when it was adopted Technological change has given rise to concerns which were not present seven decades ago and the rapid growth of technology may render obsolescent many notions of the present”it reads It goes on to urge the Indian government to consider and create a “robust regime for data protection The creation of such a regime requires a careful and sensitive balance between individual interests and legitimate concerns of the state” Even when the Supreme Court judgment talks about keeping digital privacy intact it is also taking into consideration the ideas of “protecting national security?preventing and investigating crime encouraging innovation and the spread of knowledge and preventing the dissipation of social welfare benefits” Further the court says that when it comes to these issues it puts the ball in the court of the government The policy has to be considered by the Union government says the judgment pointing out there is already a Committee in place headed by Justice B N Srikrishna former Judge of the Supreme Court which is looking at the issue of a data protection regime The Supreme Court is also hearing a case on WhatsApp’s privacy policy
