Shreyas Iyer: We’ll bat first. We have had a lot of success doing that. Need to maximise our powerplay and get to a good total. We had a dramatic game in our last encounter against them (KXIP), and they are also coming off a game with two Super Overs. We need to stick to our routines and come out all guns blazing.

U.S. Justice Dept. to file landmark antitrust case against Google

Lawmakers and consumer advocates have long accused Google, whose corporate parent Alphabet Inc. has a market value just over $1 trillion

The Justice Department is expected to file a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that Google has been abusing its online dominance in online search to stifle competition and harm consumers, a person familiar with the matter stated.

Also read: Google sued in U.S. for tracking ‘private’ internet use

The litigation marks the government’s most significant act to protect competition since its groundbreaking case against Microsoft more than 20 years ago. The suit could be an opening salvo ahead of other major government antitrust actions, given ongoing investigations of major tech companies including Apple, Amazon and Facebook at both the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission.

Lawmakers and consumer advocates have long accused Google, whose corporate parent Alphabet Inc. has a market value just over $1 trillion, of abusing its dominance in online search and advertising to stifle competition and boost its profits. Critics contend that multibillion-dollar fines and mandated changes in Google’s practices imposed by European regulators in recent years weren’t severe enough and that structural changes are needed for Google to change its conduct.

The case is expected to be filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., and will allege Google has been abusing its dominance in online search to stifle competition and harm consumers, the person familiar with the matter told the AP. It will also allege that Google uses billions of dollars collected from advertisers to pay phone manufacturers to ensure Google is the default search engine on browsers, the person said. The person could not discuss the matter publicly before a formal announcement expected later Tuesday morning and spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity.

The Trump administration has long had Google in its sights. A top economic adviser to President Donald Trump said two years ago that the White House was considering whether Google searches should be subject to government regulation. Mr. Trump has often criticized Google, recycling unfounded claims by conservatives that the search giant is biased against conservatives and suppresses their viewpoints, interferes with U.S. elections and prefers working with the Chinese military over the Pentagon.

Google controls about 90% of global web searches. The company has been bracing for the government’s action and is expected to fiercely oppose any attempt to force it to spin off its services into separate businesses.

The company, based in Mountain View, California, has long denied the claims of unfair competition. Google argues that although its businesses are large, they are useful and beneficial to consumers. It maintains that its services face ample competition and have unleashed innovations that help people manage their lives.

Most of Google’s services are offered for free in exchange for personal information that helps it sell its ads. Google insists that it holds no special power forcing people to use its free services or preventing them from going elsewhere.

A recent report from a House Judiciary subcommittee, following a year-long investigation into Big Tech’s market dominance, concluded that Google has monopoly power in the market for search. It said the company established its position in several markets through acquisition, snapping up successful technologies that other businesses had developed – buying an estimated 260 companies in 20 years.

The argument for reining in Google has gathered force as the company stretched far beyond its 1998 roots as a search engine governed by the motto “Don’t Be Evil.” It’s since grown into a diversified goliath with online tentacles that scoop up personal data from billions of people via services ranging from search, video and maps to smartphone software. That data helps feed the advertising machine that has turned Google into a behemoth.

The company owns the leading web browser in Chrome, the world’s largest smartphone operating system in Android, the top video site in YouTube and the most popular digital mapping system. Some critics have singled out YouTube and Android as among Google businesses that should be considered for divestiture.

With only two weeks to Election Day, the Trump Justice Department is taking bold legal action against Google on an issue of rare bipartisan agreement. Republicans and Democrats have accelerated their criticism of Big Tech in recent months, although sometimes for different reasons. It’s unclear what the status of the government’s suit against Google would be if a Joe Biden administration were to take over next year.

The Justice Department sought support for its suit from states across the country that share concerns about Google’s conduct. A bipartisan coalition of 50 U.S. states and territories, led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, announced a year ago they were investigating Google’s business practices, citing “potential monopolistic behavior.”

KXIP vs DC Live Score: Delhi Capitals win toss, opt to bat vs Kings XI Punjab | Cricket News

Hello and welcome to TimesofIndia.com’s live coverage of Match 38 of IPL 2020 between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals in Dubai.
Preview
The nail-biting win over defending champions Mumbai Indians was certainly a morale-lifter but the inconsistent Kings XI Punjab have another tough battle at hand when they take on table leaders Delhi Capitals.
Having lost two tight games they should have won at the start of the season, KXIP managed to get on the right side of the results in the last couple of games, although it was too close for comfort by their own admission.
Needing seven off the last two overs with nine wickets in hand, they should have wrapped the game against RCB much before the last ball and even in the IPL’s first double Super Over against Mumbai Indians on Sunday night, the K L Rahul-led side could have closed it out in regulation time.
Death bowing and the form of star player Glenn Maxwell in a shaky middle-order remain a concern for a team that needs to win its remaining five games to make the play-offs.
The fact that KXIP have struggled this season despite having tournament’s top two run-getters in openers Rahul (525) and Mayank Agarwal (393) best sums up their erratic run.
On a positive note, the successful return of Chris Gayle has reduced the burden on the shoulders of the star openers, especially allowing Rahul to play more freely.
Nicholas Pooran has shown his lethalness time and again but is yet to play a match-winning knock and the pressure is increasing on Maxwell the batsman, who is proving to be more useful as a spinner operating in the powerplay.
However, the team is likely to stick to him in the game against Delhi Capitals.
Delhi are clearly the team to beat in the tournament and have gained in confidence with a close win against Chennai Super Kings on Saturday night.
While Prithvi Shaw needs to be back among the runs after a couple of ducks, his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan elevating his game bodes well for the team that has won seven out of the nine matches it has played.
Axar Patel has shown his utility not just with the ball but also with the bat. His three sixes off Ravindra Jadeja helped Delhi get over the line in the final over finish against CSK.
With an envious bowling line-up, Delhi have shown they can defend even below-par totals. Playing in the absence of an injured Rishabh Pant, time is running out for Ajinkya Rahane to make an impact.
The match went into a Super Over last time the two teams met and more than Delhi, KXIP will be hoping that it doesn’t come to that again.

Army to take ‘few days’ to release Chinese soldier held in Ladakh | India News

NEW DELHI: The Army on Tuesday said it will take another “few days” to release the Chinese soldier who was apprehended after he inadvertently crossed over into Indian territory in the Demchok sector of eastern Ladakh on Monday.
An Army officer said there is “laid down protocol and due process” that is followed in such cases, even though the espionage angle has been virtually ruled out. “The Chinese soldier, Corporal Wang Ya Long, is fine after receiving medical assistance. He is also being questioned by Chinese language experts,” he said.

“He will be handed over to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) at the Chushul-Moldo border point after the formalities are completed, as per the protocol,” he added.
Earlier in the day, the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson in Beijing said Wang was helping local herdsmen find their yaks when he went missing in the process.
“The Indian side promised support and said it will return the soldier in time after medical checks. We hope the Indian side will stick to its commitment and return the soldier at an early date,” said the spokesperson.
As was reported by TOI on Monday, the PLA soldier, who had his identity card in his pocket and belongs to Shangxizhen town of central Zhejiang province in China, was disoriented when he was taken into custody by Indian troops in the Demchok sector.
The incident comes at a time when the eight round of corps commander-level talks between India and China is set to take place later this week. There was no tangible breakthrough in resolving the standoff during the seventh round on October 12, though the PLA came up with “a fresh set of mutual disengagement proposals”.
India has stuck to its stand of “complete de-escalation” at the troop face-off sites as well as along the entire LAC in eastern Ladakh, with the PLA initiating the withdrawal in accordance with the “first in, first out” principle.
India had also rejected China’s demand that its troops first vacate the tactical heights they preemptively occupied on the ridge line stretching from Thakung on the south bank of Pangong Tso to Gurung Hill, Spanggur Gap, Magar Hill, Mukhpari, Rezang La and Reqin La (Rechin mountain pass) on August 29-30.

China takes note of Australia joining Malabar naval drills

BEIJING: China on Tuesday said it has “taken note” of India’s announcement that Australia will join the annual Malabar naval exercises along with the US and Japan, underlining that military cooperation should be “conducive” to regional peace and stability.
India on Monday announced that Australia will join the upcoming Malabar exercise which effectively means that all the four-member countries of the ‘Quad‘ or Quadrilateral coalition will be participating in the mega drill.

The US and Japan are the other countries that participate in the annual exercise, which is likely to take place next month in the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea.
Commenting on the announcement, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told a media briefing here that China has “taken note of this development.”
“We always believe that military cooperation between countries should be conducive to regional peace and stability,” he said in a brief reaction.
India’s decision to heed to Australia’s request to be part of the mega naval drill comes in the midst of growing strain in ties with China over the border row in eastern Ladakh.
China has been suspicious about the purpose of the Malabar exercise as it feels that the annual war game is an effort to contain its influence in the Indo-Pacific region.
The Malabar exercise started in 1992 as a bilateral drill between the Indian Navy and the US Navy in the Indian Ocean. Japan became a permanent participant in the exercise in 2015. This annual exercise was conducted off the coast of Guam in the Philippine Sea in 2018 and off the coast of Japan in 2019.
For the last few years, Australia has been showing keen interest in joining the exercise.
The evolving situation in the Indo-Pacific in the wake of China’s increasing military muscle flexing has become a major talking point among leading global powers. The US has been favouring making Quad a security architecture to check China’s growing assertiveness in the strategic Indo-Pacific region.

Goethe Zentrum’s Three for 30 makes a case for peace and harmony through photographs

Ten photographers showcase diverse and heartwarming frames that capture unity in this virtual exhibition

A photograph by Vijay Jodha captures the happy, smiling faces of school students trying to spot their village on a globe.

The village is in Gurez Valley of Kashmir, near the LoC. Observing the cheer among the students in this tumultuous region, Jodha knew it was a special moment. This and several other images by 10 photographers are featured in the virtual exhibition Three for 30, curated by Goethe Zentrum, Hyderabad. The exhibition commemorates 30 years of German Unity Day (October 3) and doffs its hat to the Gandhian principle of non-violence with its theme of peace, harmony and unity.

Jodha recalls his visit to the Valley, “I was travelling with Honeybee Network which supports innovators at the grassroots; the organisation also encourages school students to come up with new ideas and gifts those who come up with something innovative. A globe was gifted to these students and they were thrilled, trying to identify Kashmir and their village.”

Three for 30 features three images by each of the 10 photographers. Amita Talwar delves into her extensive travels to showcase a candid image of two young monks sharing a fun moment, and a devotee finding peace with a sacred thread tied around the wrist.

The photographers’ impressions on non-violence, unity and harmony are diverse. Harpal Singh who has reported extensively on life in Telangana, captures a group of men cycling on the highway and others perched on trucks on a long journey home. Samar Jodha underlines the idea of unity through outstretched arms of a bunch of school children. Namrata Rupani documents the tranquillity at Quli Tub Shahi tombs, and the orange-hued skies of Hyderabad against the Hussain Sagar lake.Saurabh Chatterjee who has been documenting cities and communities, takes viewers into Hyderabad’s Old City where an idol of goddess Durga is being transported for installation in a pandal as burqa-clad women stand by. In this part of Hyderabad, festive celebrations witness an intermingling of communities. In another image, he trains his lens on Hindu and Muslim boys partaking in Holi revelry.

Dev Diwali in Varanasi by Saurabh Chatterjee

Yet another image from Varanasi shows a Muslim man beaming at the sight of the ghats lit up in rows of diyas. “All these are candid images. The smile you see on the man near the ghats is heartfelt. In Varanasi, people living close to the ghats take up the responsibility of cleaning and decorating the ghats for Dev Diwali. I came across this Muslim gentleman who was pleased with the decorations they had done earlier in the day,” says Chatterjee.

During his repeated visits to Varanasi, Chatterjee observed how different groups spruce up the ghats for the festivities: “Visitors from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh make elaborate floral rangolis on which the diyas are placed.”Dipping into his archives, Sreesailem Pasupuleti was reminded of the time in Vrindavan when he noticed a man walking with his pet rooster: “People worshipping cows is a common sight in Vrindavan and while capturing one such moment, I spotted this man. I followed him and learnt that he has three pet roosters.”

Unity by Sreesailam Pasupuleti

Elsewhere, in a fishing hamlet in West Bengal, Pasupuleti spotted a group of fishermen hauling a boat towards the shore: “The fishermen work in unison. They head out in groups of 10, on a boat, and the trip lasts anywhere between two to five days. They return with a good catch, which is offloaded, and they haul up the boat together for cleaning and repair work.”

The exhibition includes a few arresting images by photographers Serish Nanisetti, Swarat Ghosh, and Sourav Nandi, and is on view till November 7.
