Amazon wins arbitration order against Future’s deal with Reliance

NEW DELHI/MUMBAI (Reuters) – A Singapore arbitration panel has put on hold Future Group’s $3.38 billion asset sale to Reliance Industries <RELI.NS>, an interim win for Amazon.com Inc <AMZN.O> which had alleged the deal between the Indian firms breached some existing agreements.

Amazon received an emergency order to halt the companies from proceeding with the deal until an arbitration tribunal is formed, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

Amazon last year bought a 49% stake in Future Coupons Ltd, which owns a 7.3% stake in Future Retail. In August, Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance decided to buy retail, wholesale and some other businesses of the Future Group in a deal valued at $3.38 billion, including debt.

But Amazon’s investment came with contractual rights that include a right of first refusal and a non-compete-like pact, media had reported, and Amazon later started arbitration proceedings in Singapore.

“It’s a comprehensive

Internet Decides Moderator Kristen Welker Wins the Debate

Thursday night’s final presidential debate was fraught with internet drama: big man memes, smiling Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden memes, and jokes about goggles.

The millions of Americans who tuned in for the last opportunity to see the candidates face off didn’t seem especially persuaded by either performance.

But one thing the internet was sure of: Kristen Welker of NBC News did an incredible job as moderator.

Moderating a presidential debate is a dangerous game. Often those who accept the challenge wind up on the losing side. Not Welker.

At the conclusion of the debate, Judy Woodruff of PBS complimented Welker’s “superb job tonight.”

Even President Donald Trump couldn’t help but express admiration for Welker’s performance. “I respect very much the way you’re handling this,” he said halfway through the hour-and-a-half debate.

“This sure as hell isn’t going to be the last time Kristen Welker moderates a presidential debate,” tweeted

Google’s antitrust legal woes far from over if Biden wins

By Diane Bartz

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department’s nascent antitrust case against Google will get the attention it needs to succeed if Democrat Joe Biden wins the U.S. presidency next month, antitrust experts said.

William Kovacic, an antitrust professor at George Washington University Law School, said he expects a Biden Justice Department would do one of two things: support the case all the way as it is, or amend the complaint to add new claims.

“What they will not do is drop this case,” Kovacic predicted.

The Justice Department asked a court on Tuesday to find that Alphabet’s Google had broken antitrust law to maintain its dominance in search and search advertising. Google has denied wrongdoing.

While the Biden campaign declined comment on the lawsuit, spokesman Bill Russo said a Biden administration would work closely on Big Tech issues with Rep. David Cicilline, whose House panel produced a

Indian-American teen wins $25,000 for work on potential COVID-19 treatment

A 14-year-old Indian-American girl has won a USD 25,000 young scientist challenge for a discovery that could provide a potential treatment for COVID-19.

Anika Chebrolu, an eighth grader from Frisco in Texas, won the 3M Young Scientist Challenge, regarded as the US’ premier middle school science competition, for her work using in-silico methodology for drug discovery to find a molecule that can selectively bind to the Spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 virus in an attempt to find a cure for the coronavirus pandemic, according to the 3M Challenge website.

3M is an American manufacturing company based in Minnesota.


Chebrolu decided to take part in the Young Scientist Challenge after she battled a severe influenza infection last year. She wanted to find a cure for influenza. However, that all changed after the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the website said.

“I was drawn towards finding effective cures for influenza disease after a severe

A Modern-Day David and Goliath – Techno Teen Takes on Computer Giant – and Wins!

“Those who say it can’t be done need to get out of the way of those that are doing it.” Unknown

The entrepreneur of today’s world can be compared to the legendary Don Quixote – chasing windmills in search of great fortune.

The entrepreneurial journey I would like to share with you in this article might be a bit of a surprise. I find it remarkable yet I have barely seen it mentioned in the press over the years.

Imagine the following scenario. The year is 1983. You are a college freshman at The University of Texas in Austin, sitting in your dorm room playing around on your computer.

1983. Pre-Internet. Pre-computers-on-every-desk, in-every-room-of-the-house. These were the days of PONG, where very few people sat around playing with personal computers. (If you don’t know what PONG is, ask someone a lot older than you.)

Back to your dorm room. You are … Read More
