Uthup Varghese, the main accused in the nursing recruitment case, was arrested by the CBI on Wednesday morning from the Kochin airport in Kerala.

Uthup was arrested at about 3.30 am when he landed at the Nedumbassery airport from Abudhabi in Etihad Airways. Uthup Varghese will be produced before the CBI court in Ernakulam. Police are interrogating him. Several nurses were recruited by his firm Al Zarafa Travels to get jobs at hospitals run by the Kuwait government. He had cheated several of them by demanding excess service charge and was allegedly involved in Rs 400 cr nurses recruitment racket.

According to the case filed by the CBI, he had amassed nearly Rs 300 crore recruiting nurses this way. Earlier, Income Tax Department had seized Rs 3 crore unaccounted money from his agency's offices in Bengaluru and Kochi.
The CBI had served notices on him for appearing before the agency for interrogation. Since he had refused to oblige, the agency issued a lookout notice and also figured in the Interpol list.

Concerned friends and relatives found a giant python sprawled out in Akbar's own back garden the next evening - and feared he had been suffocated and swallowed. Akbar's lifeless body was found inside the serpent after horrified locals sliced open its belly using a 18-inch long hunting knife. Horrifying footage shows the corpse being slowly removed from the killer reptile as the leathery skin is peeled away. Neighbour Satriawan - who knew Akbar - said: 'He was found in the location of the garden.

'Initially Akbar set out from his home to go to harvest palm. After not returning to his home, people looked for him.' Akbar's wife, Munu, was away at the time and only found out when pictures and video emerged in the news, local media reported.

Say goodbye to Gchat: Google is axing its much-loved instant messaging service in June in favour of Hangouts

It was one of Google's most beloved products, but come June, the technology firm is saying goodbye to its Gchat application.

Officially known as ‘Google Talk’, Gchat was one of the most widely-used instant messaging services, with an estimated 7.5 million active users. But before you panic, there’s good news – Google Talk users will be rolled over to Hangouts, another of Google’s chat platforms that does effectively the same thing.

Officially known as ‘Google Talk’, Gchat was one of the most widely-used instant messaging services, with an estimated 7.5 million active users

Google revealed that it was axing Google Talk in a blog last week. Google Talk first started in 2005 and was an instant-messaging service aimed at adults. Eight years later in 2013, Google launched Google Hangouts, a second chat application that allows users to text, voice, or video-chat their friends.

In the blog, a Google spokesperson said: ‘Hangouts offers advanced improvements over Google Talk such as group video calling and integration with other Google products. ‘With the introduction of Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat, which add further improvements in meetings and team collaboration, it is now time to say goodbye to Google Talk.’

 

WHAT IS GCHAT?

Gchat, officially known as Google Talk, was on instant messaging service for adults. 

It was launched in 2005, and was a direct competitor of MSN Messenger. 

Users could send on or offline messages and Gtalk invitations to Gmail users and contacts.

They could also send basic files to friends in the app.

It also included ‘Voice over Internet Protocol’ (VoIP) functions, such as audio conferencing and file transfer.

 

But before you panic, there’s good news – Google Talk users will be rolled over to Hangouts, another of Google’s chat platforms that does effectively the same thing

From June 26, Google Talk users will automatically be rolled over to Hangouts. The Google spokesperson added: ‘For users that preferred the Google Talk look, there is a Dense Roster setting in Hangouts that provides a similar experience.’ Google has several other communications apps, including Allo, Duo and its Android messaging app. 

Google Hangouts, is Google's more advanced instant messaging service, which allows users to text, voice, or video-chat their friends

Facebook Messenger could stop working for you THIS WEEK

App to be axed from 76% of Windows smartphones

Facebook's popular Messenger app will be cut from a huge number of Windows phones this week.

The messaging service will no longer run on any of Microsoft's smartphones using the Windows 8.1 operating system, or any of its earlier systems - which is estimated to be 76 per cent of Windows users. Facebook Messenger is the latest in a line of apps to desert Windows Phones after Microsoft has struggled to compete with Apple and Android devices in recent years.

Customers were informed of the change by an email from Facebook. 'Thank you for choosing to use Messenger,' the email reads. 'We regret to inform you that at the end of March, the app version you're using is no longer supported and you can not send and receive messages. 'To continue to send and receive messages from Facebook on your phone, update your Facebook app to the latest version.'

Phones affected by the withdrawal include the Microsoft Lumia 640, 640 XL and the Lumia 535.  Last week, Kantar revealed that Windows Phone 8.1 is still currently the most popular version of the software, sitting at 76.3 per cent of the install base.  The move came just weeks after Skype pulled its support for older Windows operating systems.

And WhatsApp also announced that it would be pulling its services from Windows devices earlier in 2017. The phones, which were developed by Microsoft and Nokia, have failed to compete with Apple and Android devices.  The operating system dipped to a 0.3 per cent of the market share by the end of Microsoft's third financial quarter in 2016.

Critics have claimed that the apps available on Windows phones pale in comparison to their iOS and Android counterparts. For example, Windows does not support Citymapper, the hugely popular navigational app that helps users plan their journey through towns and cities across the world.  The Citymapper app currently provides public transport advice in 39 cities.

Jordan airline suggests flyers 'talk' during laptop ban

kg779

While Middle Eastern airlines grapple with carry-on bans for laptops on flights to the US and Britain, one carrier is encouraging passengers to do the unthinkable: actually talk to each other.

Royal Jordanian, one of the airlines affected by new restrictions on electronic devices bigger than mobile phones on direct flights to the US and UK, has released a tongue-in-cheek list of in-flight alternatives to staring at a screen.

"Read a book. Say hello to the person next to you. Meditate," are among the 12 lighthearted suggestions posted on its Facebook page this week. The post, which has received close to 10,000 likes, also advises customers to "enjoy the miracle of flight" and "analyse the meaning of life".

The US ban will affect around 50 flights per day from nine airlines, and the British ban will hit 14 carriers. Royal Jordanian, which operates direct flights to London, New York, Detroit and Chicago, followed up its popular post with another alternative in-flight activity: "Or do what we Jordanians do best... stare at each other!"
