WATCH Sunil Grover makes a comeback as Rinku Bhabhi in Bali

first_imgSunil Grover as Rinku Bhabhi (left)InstagramThere is no denial that Sunil Grover, who carved a niche for himself in small screen by playing the much-loved characters Gutthi, Dr Mashoor Gulati and Rinku Bhabhi in Comedy Knights With Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show is a star with a massive fan following. Such is his popularity that when he quit Kapil’s show, fans were extremely upset. There were several efforts made by the channel, his colleagues and fans to make him return on show but Sunil stayed determined.But another chance for the fans to see Grover play Rinku Bhabhi yet again has arisen. Sunil recently got into the character of Rinku Bhabhi to entertain the guests at the wedding in Bali, Indonesia.In a video, which has now gone viral, Sunil, dressed as Rinku Bhabhi is seen crooning to his popular song, “mere husband mujhko pyaar nahi karte” and leaving the guests in splits. Thereafter, he asks one of the guests, “Rakhi apne husband ko kaise pyaar karte hain please bataye (Rakhi, please tell us how do you love your husband)”. The guest replies, “mujhe bahut sharam aati hai ( I am very shy)”, to which Sunil says, ‘bus yehi hai joh mujhe nahi aati…(This is the only thing which I don’t know)”.For the uninitiated, Sunil and Kapil Sharma got into a mid-air brawl in March 2017, post which the former left the show. Although the dust has settled down now and both are happy in their respective professional front, Kapil and Sunil are apparently not comfortable with each other’s presence but seem to be cordial on social media.  Meanwhile, Sunil recently revealed his inspiring journey, how harsh life was and how he managed to survive in Mumbai before ‘Gutthi’ happened to him through a post for social media blog Humans Of Bombay.The actor-comedian said that despite being good at acting, he would earn around Rs 500 a month during his initial year in Mumbai.”I was always good at acting & making people laugh. I remember in 12th grade I took part in a drama competition–the chief guest said that I shouldn’t participate, because it was unfair to the others! After I finished my masters in theatre, I came to Mumbai to act. But for the first year, I only partied. I lived in a posh area, using my savings & some money from home. I’d only earn around Rs.500 a month. But I thought I’d be successful soon,” he said.last_img read more

Lawmakers Push for Kill Switch to Deter Smartphone Theft

first_img How Success Happens 3 min read Listen Now Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible.center_img Chances are, you’re carrying a mobile phone on you right now. You might even be reading this very post on your smartphone. Chances are also increasingly high that your smartphone will, at some point, be stolen. One out of every three robberies in the U.S. involve the theft of a smartphone, according to research by Consumer Reports. Now, two prominent lawmakers have created a coalition of police, political officials and consumer advocates to deter the theft of smartphones.New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón have launched the “Secure Our Smartphones” initiative. The goal is to encourage smartphone makers to develop technologies, such as a “kill switch,” that make mobile devices unusable if stolen. The idea is if smartphones can’t be used again, thieves will be less inclined to steal and try to re-sell them.New York City saw a 40 percent increase in mobile thefts in 2012, according to a recent Time magazine article. And in San Francisco, approximately 50 percent of all robberies last year involved some type of mobile communications device, a statement announcing the initiative says.Related: Congress to Google: Glass Privacy Issues Must Be Taken Seriously”The cell phone industry cannot ignore that smartphone theft is a crime that can be fixed with a technological solution,” says Gascón in the statement.The coalition will aim to accomplish the following tasks, among others:Analyze patterns, causes and trends behind the growing and increasingly violent problem of device theft.Work with device manufacturers to make a kill switch, or equally effective technology that would enable stolen devices to be permanently disabled, a standard feature of their products.Raise public and shareholder awareness about industry practices in this area.Currently, smartphone and tablet users are able to encrypt data and lock their devices with security passwords, but devices haven’t included built-in features to permanently shut them down if lost or stolen. Paid apps and services like Lookout Mobile Security can provide tools the help locate missing devices and remote wipe and lock functions.At its Worldwide Developers Conference this week in San Francisco, Apple said it will equip new iPhones and its other mobile devices with a kill switch that allows users go online and deactivate the devices if they are lost or stolen. Also, Samsung is working with a company called Absolute Software to provide a kill switch — among other security features — on the Samsung Galaxy devices.Related: Tech Startups That Are Strengthening Real-World Security June 14, 2013last_img read more

4 Tips for Attracting GoogleQuality Software Engineers

first_imgMarch 14, 2014 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals According to the latest Glassdoor survey, you don’t need to pay Google salaries in order to attract Google-quality software engineers.The online recruiting platform found that 52% of software engineers are likely to accept less money in order to enjoy a better work culture, while 51% are likely to take a lower salary in order to work on an attractive product or service. The average annual salary for software engineers in Silicon Valley is over $111,000.“The general perception, if you will, is that software engineers are in such high demand that you need to throw cash at them to hope to reel them in,” says Glassdoor director Samantha Zupan. “The big takeaway is that money isn’t everything.”And given that one in four software engineers plans to start looking for a new gig in the next three months, small businesses and startups looking for great software engineers may be in luck. Zupan shares four top tips for attracting software engineers:Related: Yelp, Yahoo Partnership Goes Into EffectNo. 1: Communicate your company’s story.Zupan says the survey findings underscore how important it is to software engineers to work on projects they feel strongly about.“They never know when that hot new startup is hiring that is in an area they feel passionate about, so they are always keeping their eyes and ears open,” says Zupan.To take advantage of this, Zupan says it’s important that recruiters and hiring managers do a terrific job articulating what is special about the business.“What’s your story? What are you trying to do? What’s the vision for the company?” asks Zupan, listing some of the important questions recruiters should keep in mind. Recruiters should also think about how they want to portray the company culture.No. 2: Get personal.When reaching out to potential candidates, Zupan says it’s important to get personal.“It’s a turnoff when you get a generic email from a recruiter. It shows they’re not not paying attention to who that person is or why they might be a right fit,” says Zupan. Being able to speak specifically about the work that a particular candidate has done in the past will make your company stand out, and speak highly about the office culture.Related: SEO – Y Care? Basics for Business OwnersNo. 3: Discuss long-term plans.Zupan says many software engineers are eager to know what the long-term trajectory looks like at a company before taking the job.“What’s the type of work that I will have once I finish this project?” asks Zupan, citing an important question many engineers have. “There needs to be a career advancement pipeline.”No. 4: Remember that attractive benefits aren’t one-size-fits-all.While many startups receive attention for in-office parties and catered meals, Zupan says perks that may be attractive to one engineer might not be all that appealing to another.“If you are a software engineer that has two or three kids … on-site amenities that allow you to stay longer at work are not the thing you want to have. You want things that help you be a great mom or dad and allow you to spend time with your kids, like telecommuting,” says Zupan.Related: 5 Top Cities for Starting a Business 3 min read Register Now » This story originally appeared on FOX BUSINESSlast_img read more
