Inside Logics 18002738255 Suicide Prevention Song Mental Health Awareness Month

first_imgOne of the singles off his 2017 album Everybody, “1-800-273-8255,” leapt onto the music scene and brought the Maryland native to a whole new audience. Not just any phone number, 1-800-273-8255 happens to be the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which offers services to those experiencing a mental health crisis, including suicidality.The song, which also features Alessia Cara and Khalid, poignantly captures a dialog between a suicidal hotline caller, the counselor on the other end of the phone and the resulting journey from feeling hopeless and alone to finding a little hope.Though suicide is the leading cause of death among 15–24 year olds, and it claims more than 38,000 lives each year, few artists tackle the subject head on in the way Logic did. He revealed during a visit to the Recording Academy’s Santa Monica, Calif., headquarters that he was inspired to write the song after he went on a tour around the country to meet his fans. Many told them his music had saved their lives.This got him thinking about not only the power of music to heal, but also how, as a society, we often don’t talk openly about mental health. Though he said it was hard to talk about topics such as suicide and anxiety, which is featured on another track on Everybody, “Anziety,” he knew it was vitally important.”I was so scared for so long to say that because society has lead me to believe that my anxiety is stupid and shouldn’t be talked about, or that suicide, ‘Who cares, who’s weak enough to kill themselves?’ Which is the most terrible, disgusting, ugly thing somebody can say,” Logic said. “That’s why I decided to write about these topics because I was scared to write about them. And since I was scared, I was like, ‘Well damn, it must mean it’s good.'”And it was good. “1-800-273-8255″ earned Logic his first two career GRAMMY nominations at the 60th GRAMMY Awards for Song Of The Year and Best Music Video. Logic, Cara and Khalid also gave a stunning performance during the 60th GRAMMYs telecast alongside real suicide attempt survivors, which had an even more profound impact: The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline received triple their normal volume of calls following the performance.For Logic, opening a dialog was also personally important because he has faced his own challenges with mental health.”I wrote these things from a selfless place in my heart because there’s so many people out there struggling, and I was struggling,” Logic shared. “My highest grossing year was my most unhappy year of my life because I was working myself to death.”Nowadays, Logic has been working to find a way to balance a high-pressure career with the things that matter in life. The advice that works best for him?”Balance yourself,” he says. “That’s what you have to do, and that’s what these songs are about.”Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Spy Shots Hit Web Speculated Launch Feature Details

first_imgMaruti Suzuki’s next offering in the sedan segment, Ciaz, is not expected until September but the spy photos of the car has been doing the rounds on the web for quite sometime.Now the latest in the line is an image posted by the MotorBeam team, which shows Ciaz being tested outside Maruti’s Gurgaon plant. The car is seen heavily camouflaged, thus not revealing much details on its design.Ciaz, the new entry into the C-segment, was first seen at the Delhi Auto Expo 214 and is likely to make its India debut in September. The car, codenamed YL1, is expected to replace the underperforming SX4 sedan in the country and resembles the Suzuki Authentics concept car, which was shown at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show.Ciaz is likely to pack the same 1.3 liter Multijet diesel or 1.4 liter K Series petrol engine of Ertiga. Under the hood, it is expected to carry some of the features of both SX4 and Ertiga. Other speculated features of the car include 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, push button start, puddle lamps and leather seats.The car is also expected to host a number of safety features like Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). Rumours are also rife that the Maruti’s new sedan will get the Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) technology, which was introduced with the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio. Ciaz will take on the likes of Hyundai Verna, Honda City and Volkswagen Vento.Maruti is also rumoured to launch the AMT version of Alto K10. Alto K10, a successful small offering of Marurti, has seen a dip in its sales in recent years. The introduction of the AMT variant of Alto K10 is expected to salvage its losing charm in the sub-continent market.(Edited by Vishnuprasad S Pillai)last_img read more

US to offer Chinas ZTE temporary relief on export curbs Official

first_imgThe U.S. Department of Commerce is expected this week to lift export curbs it imposed on Chinese telecom equipment and smart phone maker ZTE Corp for alleged Iran sanctions violations.”The relief would be temporary in nature and would be maintained only if ZTE is abiding by its commitments to the U.S. Government,” according to a senior official at the agency.The Commerce Department restrictions imposed earlier this month made it difficult for ZTE to acquire U.S. components by requiring its suppliers to apply for an export license before shipping any American-made equipment or parts to ZTE.The department had said the license applications generally would be denied.Shenzhen-based ZTE has been “in active, constructive discussions” with the Commerce Department for the past week, according to a senior official at the agency.”As part of the effort to resolve the matter, and based upon binding commitments that ZTE has made to the U.S. government, Commerce expects this week to be able to provide temporary relief from some licensing requirements,” the official said.The details of the commitments are expected to be published this week in the U.S. Federal Register.ZTE was not immediately available for comment outside regular office hours.BIG HITZTE is among the largest companies that the Commerce Department has hit with a near-total export ban, according to public records.It is the No. 4 smart phone vendor in the United States, with a 7 percent market share, behind Apple Inc, Samsung Electronics Co and LG Electronics Inc, according to research firm IDC. It sells handset devices to three of the four largest U.S. mobile carriers: AT&T, T-Mobile US and Sprint CorpThe export restrictions have drawn protests from the Chinese government and rocked ZTE’s business.Its shares have not traded on the Hong Kong stock exchange for the past two weeks. The company also said last week it was delaying the publication of its annual results while it assesses the impact of Washington’s action.ZTE also said it would postpone its board meeting. Its shares last closed at HK$14.16, prior to a trading suspension on March 7.Goldman Sachs suspended its coverage on ZTE, saying there was not enough information to determine an investment rating, price target and earnings estimates for the company.Since coming under fire in 2012 for alleged deals with sanctions-hit Iran and possible links to the Chinese government and military, ZTE has ramped up its spending on Washington lobbyists.It spent $5.1 million in the last four years, up from $2,12,000 in 2011, as it sought to assuage national security concerns, according to publicly available lobbying records maintained by Congress.The Commerce Department investigated ZTE for alleged export-control violations following Reuters reports in 2012 that the company had signed contracts to ship millions of dollars worth of American-made hardware and software to Iran’s largest telecoms carrier.last_img read more

Glistering all the way

first_imgThe Kolkata-based jewellery chain, Senco Gold and Diamonds, has remained the first choice for many families since ages. Be it a wedding, puja or any other occasion, Senco has the perfect collection to make one look absolutely gorgeous and leave others speechless. The business, which was started from scratch by Late Maran Chand Sen, soars high amongst other jewellery brands in the market. Senco Gold and Diamonds’ stores are spread all over West Bengal, Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Patna, Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Jamshedpur, Ranchi and Guwahati among others.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelfIt not only has a pan-Indian customer base but is also involved in exporting gold and diamond jewellery to the Middle East, Singapore, UK and USA. Suvankar Sen, the Managing Director of Senco Gold and Diamonds, who joined the family business in 2007, believes that trust for quality and value for money sets them apart. An MBA from IMT Ghaziabad, Sen has worked closely with his father Sankar Sen, to learn the nitty gritty of their long running business.  Sen talks about Senco’s impeccable journey which runs for more than eight decades now along with their expansion plans.  Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveKindly tell us the background of your group. How did your grandparents come about it? Our company was started by my great grandfather Maran Chand Sen, who used to be an intern at a jewellery store. One day a trader left behind some precious stones. He was honest enough to keep it aside and return it to him when he met him a year after. That made the trader happy and in return he gave him a packet as a reward for his honesty. This gave him the capital to start his business which he named ‘Senco’.  He was smart enough to sense the change in the political environment and shift base to Kolkata during the Bengal Partition. After his death, his sons had disagreements among themselves and separated. My grandfather was given the smallest showroom and a minimum capital to restart his branch of Senco. He turned that into a very profitable showroom and went on to add 2 more to his portfolio. My father, Sankar Sen expanded it further and introduced the business model of franchisees and after I joined in 2007 the rate of expansion is as we see it today.How has been the journey of Senco group with so many jewellery brands cropping up side by side?Our motto is value for money and trust for quality. The journey with other competitors and brands entering the market with fluctuating gold price has been a challenging one and that in turn has helped us to meet the demands of the current time and supply our customers with lightweight jewellery. There are multiple jewellery brands available for consumers, how do you convince people to go for Senco? Senco Gold & Diamonds is an eighty year old brand so it includes four generations of trust. In addition, Kolkata is the best known for karigari – heavy and light weight jewellery for both wedding and daily/casual wear. So, I believe that very unique handcrafted jewellery designs  can be found here.  What is the USP of Senco gold? Having our base in Kolkata makes us unique as we are in manufacturing and retailing sector. The light affordable jewellery covering wedding or daily wear gives us an upper hand. Also, the trend that we follow while making our products sets us apart. What are the main products that you are pushing for sale? Gold, diamonds, platinum, silver– All are fine for sale.What according to you is the latest trend of consumption?The latest trend is sleek designs in gold and diamonds. It’s not about the quantity but largely depends on the quality source, which is the heritage and the value.People say gold is better as an investment than diamonds. Why?Gold is an internationally accepted metal, almost a substitute to currency that appreciates value over time. The price is driven by market demand and supply. Diamonds on the other hand are rare, precious, beautiful and fashionable. It is more modern and trendy. Big sized diamonds are still accepted as investments but not the tiny ones.In this era of so many diamonds consumers, do you think purchase of gold is on the decline?Purchase of gold amongst youngsters is on decline, compared to diamonds. This is mainly due to the dressing style and behaviour of the consumers. They want to enjoy what they wear and gold becomes selective in that case. However, I believe consumers should appreciate the long term asset value of gold and act on it. Where does Senco group stand when compared to others?We don’t compare ourselves with others. We believe in giving a solution to our consumers in terms of designs and value. We want to execute the best practices in terms of processes and controls and serve the needs of our consumers.Lately, the government has imposed tax on jewellery transactions. How intensely does it affect this line of business? Nearly 10 to 20 per cent. This is due to the rules and taxes that have been suggested but we believe it’s just a matter of time. Consumers will get used to it and we will overcome the challenge.How do you wish to see the group in another ten years?We are at 80 stores right now. As the business grows we are aiming towards 100 stores in the next two years. However, the main target over the next ten years is to take our manufactured products to the rest of the world.last_img read more

BJP cant win polls by conducting riots playing communal card

first_imgKharagpur: In a scathing attack on BJP, Trinamool Youth Congress president Abhishek Banerjee said the party cannot win the Lok Sabha elections by conducting riots, playing the communal card or highlighting fake nationalism.He was addressing a mammoth rally here on Tuesday afternoon. “BJP is trying to win the elections by conducting riots or by using fake nationalism. Bengal has a different culture and no one can gain anything here by playing the communal card,” he said.

This is most unfortunate. Religion is private and in social life our only philosophy is to serve the people,” he added. Banerjee said the 2019 Lok Sabha election is “not a fight between Trinamool and BJP. It is a fight between Bengal’s rich tradition and culture on one side and the Centre’s extortion on the other.” Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateHe alleged that BJP has looted the country in the past five years. “You will not hear a single word from them on note ban which was implemented to stop black money and terrorism. BJP does not say anything on the hasty implementation of GST either, along with farmer suicides and why 2 crore people lost their jobs. They only talk on religion to incite one community against the other,” the Trinamool Youth Congress president stated. Banerjee urged people to cast their votes in favour of party nominee Manas Bhuniya. “Undivided Midnapore had played a major role in the freedom movement. In 2019, the district will play a major role in driving out the Modi government. On May 23 when the ballot boxes will be opened, people will see that Trinamool Congress has bagged 42 out of 42 seats,” he said. He also urged people to visit the polling stations early and exercise their franchise.last_img read more

Eighthour sleep may boost academic performance

first_imgWorried that your son or daughter sleep more even during final exams week? If so, take heart. According to a study, students who sleep for eight hours are more likely to perform better. “Better sleep helped in final exam performance, which is contrary to most college students’ perceptions that they have to sacrifice either studying or sleeping,” said Michael Scullin, Assistant Professor at Baylor University’s College of Arts and Sciences. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor improvement in academic performance, a student does not have to be an ‘A’ grade, the researchers said. The findings showed that whether a student was an A, B, C, or D student before their final exam, sleeping eight hours was associated with a four-point grade boost. “It is worth noting that one student who had a D-plus grade before the final but slept more than eight hours for a week during finals week remarked that it was the first time her brain worked while taking an exam,” Scullin said. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsivePoor sleep is common during finals as students cut back on sleep, deal with more stress, use more caffeine and are exposed to more bright light, all of which may disrupt sleep. Fewer than 10 per cent of undergraduates maintain the recommended average of 8 hours a night or even the recommended minimum of 7 hours, the researchers said. In the study, the students were given extra points if they met “the 8-hour Challenge” – averaging eight hours of sleep for five nights during final exams week. The participants included undergraduate interior design students and students in upper-level psychology. They wore sleep-monitoring wristbands for five days for accurate results.last_img read more
