Dutch Economy Enters Recession As Exports And Consumer Spending Fall Published 6 minutes ago

Posted By: Jogendra Kumar Posted On: Aug 17, 2023

The Dutch economy has entered a recession, with daily growth of 0.3% in the second quarter. The first estimate was published by Statistics Netherlands on Wednesday. The fifth-largest economy in the eurozone shrank for the second consecutive quarter after it had a diminution of 0.4% in the initial three months of the year. Economic growth had been 5% in 2021 and 2022 in the Netherlands, after a quick recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. It experienced its first recession since the pandemic, as there was a drop in consumer spending and export business as inflation, food prices and energy bills were high in the Netherlands and its other trading partners.

It was reported that consumer spending fell by 1.6% while exports were 0.7% lower when compared to the beginning months of the year. Last year in September, inflation in the Netherlands dropped, hitting a peak of 14.5%, but was relatively high as it was around 6% in the second quarter of 2023.

The economies of the neighbouring countries of the Netherlands, which are France and Belgium, grew in the last quarter. The economies of European economic powerhouse Germany, another neighbouring country, remain stagnated.

The Economic Minister Caretaker, Micky Adriaansens, said in a recent interview with a portal that the foundation of the country's economy will remain fine even after the effects of inflation and interest rate hikes on businesses and consumers. She further added that she wants to keep investing in the challenges coming in the long run and will keep an eye on how they can tackle the unnecessary price rises. The country is officially in recession, but the labour market remains strong, with an all-time low of 3.6% unemployment. There are 122 jobs for every 100 job seekers.

The reason behind the recession in the Netherlands is the political uncertainty after the resignation of the ruling coalition in the summer. A National election is scheduled for November, which will be followed by a long round of negotiations to form a new alliance.

Pyaar Ke Side Effects 2

Posted By: Pawan George Posted On: Sep 28, 2023

The contents on TikTok are as striking as any other post on social networking sites. Content creators often create a sensation on Tik Tok that leaves the internet in awe. In a similar attempt, the women of TikTok are showing off the impact they've had on their other half when they enter into a relationship. They've named the phenomenon the ‘girlfriend effect' or ‘girlfriend air.' Isn't it true that we all want to look good for our partners? Well, believe it or not, in this viral trend -‘the girlfriend effect', women are inspiring their partners to regularly upgrade their style and overall appearance, to look and feel their best, leading to their attractive transformations.

This improvement not only focuses on getting healthier physiques but also on having thoughtful sartorial choices and better hairstyles. The ‘girlfriend effect' trend on the social media platform showcases boyfriends' never-imagined-before glow-ups after being in a relationship. Undoubtedly, this trend has not just helped the men learn some aesthetics; it has also helped them gain confidence.

Here are some TikTok users who shared these impressive before-and-after videos on the platform, which have garnered huge traction.

Yzelle Durán: This content creator shared a short clip on TikTok about her husband, which has become a huge trend, amassing over 2.8 million views. The video shows multiple clips of the disheveled men prior to their relationship, and after a makeover, the viewers are treated to the ‘after' picture, which shows Yzelle's husband striking influencer's poses following his fashion overhaul.

Gabe Escobar: It's not just women who are feeling the ‘girlfriend effect', but a TikToker named Gabe Escobar has garnered an astounding 20.6 million views on a similar video. The content creator shared about how his appearance chronicling changed month by month, and thanks to his girlfriend for this transformation.

Prior to meeting his partner, Gabe shared that he went out in a crop top and blue jeans and dressed in white khakis and a thrifted women's blouse, but after his girlfriend came into his life, he ditched those outfits for puffer jackets and a sweatshirt, as well as a different hairstyle.

At the same time, while this ‘girlfriend effect' sounds like a win-win, it has its downsides too. As quoted by Lad bible, some TikTokers have expressed concerns about depersonalizing men's wardrobes.

In a viral video about the same, a TikTok user explained that women unintentionally risked ‘overhauling their boyfriends and completely redesigning them'. If this woman is helping him find a more tasteful way of executing his personal style, that's one thing. But a lot of women are not doing that.”

“They are just purely telling their boyfriends what to wear and getting rid of any sort of personal style that these boys have accumulated for themselves,” they added.

Meanwhile, a pretty disheartening trend called ‘boyfriend air' is also making waves on the internet, in which women share their transformation story with their past photos as they spend more time with their partners and spend less time on self-care.

What are your views on this ‘girlfriend effect'?

Anant Chaturdashi 2023

Posted By: Pawan George Posted On: Sep 27, 2023

The nation is currently immersed in seeking blessings of Ganpati Bappa, as the ten-day long Ganesh Chaturthi festivities are going on in different states. The Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations, which started on September 19, will come to an end on September 28, on the day of Anant Chaturdashi. Ganesh Visarjan or the immersion of idols is held on Anath Chaturdashi day.

Anant Chaturdsashi is dedicated to ‘Anant' or the infinitive form of Lord Vishnu. Devotees of Lord Vishnu observe a day-long fast and tie sacred threads during puja. It is believed that this sacred thread protects devotees from all sorts of trouble.

Worshipping Lord Vishnu on the day of Anant Chaturdashi brings immense prosperity, happiness, and blessings into one's life. To achieve success and a prosperous life by worshipping Lord Vishnu on this auspicious day, consider implementing these effective tips suggested by Bhopal-based astrologer and Vastu consultant, Pandit Hitendra Kumar Sharma.

Here are the few rituals to be followed on Anant Chaturdashi as suggested by Pandit Sharma:

1. After worshipping Lord Vishnu on Anant Chaturdashi, one should tie a silk thread on their arms. The thread should have 14 knots. It is known as Anant Sutra or Raksha Sutra.

2. As per religious beliefs, worshipping Lord Vishnu appropriately and tying a thread on the arm increases self-confidence and protects the devotees from all troubles.

3. Pandit Sharma also highlighted the importance and benefits of worshipping the Satyanarayan form of Lord Vishnu on the day of Anant Chaturdashi. He suggests that this act can fill your life with pure joy and contentment.

4. Worshiping Lord Satyanarayan on this day removes Vastu dosh from your house and fights off all the negative energies. This results in a more peaceful environment in the house and also brings prosperity to home.

5. It is recommended that on the day of Anant Chaturdashi, 14 nutmegs should be immersed in a holy river. This boosts the flow of positive energy and keeps negativity at bay.

6. Take fourteen cloves and camphor and burn them together to ensure an increase in wealth, happiness, and prosperity and to eliminate negative energy.

Godrej Properties Sells 670 Apartments Worth Rs 2

Posted By: Ramesh Sharma Posted On: Sep 26, 2023

Godrej Properties, the real estate development arm of the Godrej Group has sold 670 apartments worth over Rs 2,000 crore in its newly launched housing project located in Sector 146 of Noida, Uttar Pradesh. According to the company, the launch of Godrej Tropical Isle has been the most successful project in terms of sales volume and value. The project was started in August after the company won the land through an e-auction conducted by the Noida Authority in November last year.

Gaurav Pandey, the MD and CEO of Godrej Properties, said that Noida is an extremely important market for Godrej Properties and they will look further to strengthen the company's presence in the area in the coming years.

Sector 146 in Noida is a preferred residential area because of its strategic location close to social and commercial centres such as the Noida Special Economic Zone (SEZ), entertainment hubs and Film City. Along with this, it has good connectivity to different parts of Delhi, which makes it a perfect location for those who are looking for a residential property in Delhi-NCR.

Godrej Properties, on September 24 also bought 15 acres of land in Sector 103 of Gurugram, Haryana, for Rs 403 crore from Microtek Infratech.

Last year, in December, Godrej Properties acquired a nine-acre land parcel in Gurugram for a premium residential project. The real estate company is currently developing luxury homes at Golf Course Road in Gurugram with a revenue potential of Rs 3,100 crore.

Godrej Properties is one of the leading real estate developers in the country. It mainly focuses on Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune and other metropolitan regions for the development of residential projects. The company is expecting 14 per cent growth in sale bookings this fiscal year to a record Rs 14,000 crore.

According to company records, the total income of the first quarter of this fiscal has increased to Rs 1,265.98 crore from Rs 426.40 crore in the corresponding period of the previous year.

Mutual Funds Investment

Posted By: Preeti Dabar Posted On: Sep 26, 2023

Mutual funds have recently become one of the most popular tools of investment. The investors are putting their money in mutual funds due to higher return and a wide range of options. Just like fixed deposits (FD), there are many mutual funds which also offer a steady return. Each scheme is suited for particular needs. Those, who are new to the mutual fund investments, often get confused over redemption of a mutual fund or to switch to a new scheme.

Transferring funds from one mutual fund scheme to another is known as switching mutual funds. Your total investment is just transferred from one mutual fund scheme to another for better returns or to mitigate the risk. On the other hand, mutual fund redemption refers to taking money out of a scheme or simply withdrawing your investment.

You should know that for switching mutual funds, the schemes should belong to the same family. These are the things you should keep in mind while switching mutual funds:

• The first is investment strategy, because if you feel that the returns of a particular fund of the same family are better, then you should switch.

• Secondly, pay attention to the tax, because if you switch it from a taxable account, you may have to pay capital gains tax on it.

• The third aspect is fees and expenses. Before switching your investment, you must check the fees charged on it.

In case you want to redeem your mutual fund, keep the following points in mind:

• First, you will have to sell your holding and get the money transferred to your account. For this, focus on the financial goal. If your financial goals have changed and you no longer want to continue investing in the mutual fund, it would be better to redeem.

• Second, you should pay attention to the performance and risk of your investment. If the risk on your investment is increasing or its returns are decreasing, you should consider redemption.

• If you have invested in the short term and need money in the near future, then it would be better to redeem your mutual fund.

Redeeming or switching a fund entirely depends on your decision and financial need.

When changing mutual funds, there is typically no capital gains tax to be paid. On redeeming you may have to pay taxes for certain mutual funds if the investment tenure is more than 3 years.

Additionally, you will not be able to receive returns on a fund if you redeem it, which makes it preferable to switch.

Can You Guess The Only Indian Hotel In The World's Top 50

Posted By: Vanshika Pathak Posted On: Sep 21, 2023

Oberoi Hotels revealed that The Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra has been awarded the 45th rank in the World's Top 50 Hotels for 2023. This list was announced in London and comprises hotels from locations across the globe. The list is dominated by hotels in Europe and Asia. Hence the inclusion of The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra is indeed prestigious for India.

The Oberoi Amarvilas is known as one of India's finest hotels. What makes it extraordinary is it is just 600 metres away from one of the seven wonders of the world- the Taj Mahal. Adding to this is the panoramic view of this UNESCO heritage site from the windows of its rooms and suites just adds to the charm of the hotel and makes the stay more magical.

According to Money Control, Arjun Oberoi, the Executive Chairman of the Oberoi Group felt honoured. He said, “We are honoured to be the sole representative of India on The World's 50 Best Hotels 2023 list. This recognition reflects our relentless pursuit of perfection, the dedication of our team and the timeless allure of The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra," he said.

Vikram Oberoi, CEO and MD of the Oberoi Group shared his happiness as well. He shared that the team is delighted to be included in the inaugural listing of the World's 50 Best Hotels 2023. On this occasion, he remembered the founder Rai Bahadur MS Oberoi and the former Chairman and mentor PRS Oberoi and their belief that it is the colleagues who are the most valuable asset.

Passalacqua located close to Lake Como in Italy ranks first as the best hotel in the world. It is an 18th-century villa hotel and was the former home of composer Vincenzo Bellini. Reportedly, this is the first time that the 50 Best organisation has ranked hotels. It usually ranks the World's 50 Best Restaurants and the World's 50 Best Bars for many years.

These rankings in the list are completely based on nominations by 580 anonymous voters who are travel journalists, hoteliers and luxury travellers across the world.

When Thalapathy Vijay Encouraged Atlee To Give His Life To Jawan Published 23 minutes ago

Posted By: Vanshika Pathak Posted On: Sep 21, 2023

Atlee is currently riding high on the success of the Bollywood blockbuster Jawan, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Nayanthara in the lead roles. While the director is well known for his collaborations with South Indian superstar Thalapathy Vijay, he recently opened up about the actor's reaction to him working with King Khan. In an interview with Hindustan Times, the filmmaker shared that the opportunity to work with SRK was like a dream come true moment for him. Atlee shared that initially, even the Master star couldn't believe him, but later, he encouraged the director to pour his heart and soul into the project.

The filmmaker recalled, “When Shah Rukh sir asked me to make a film with him, it was like a lifetime opportunity for any director. I was very happy, I said yes. Then I went to Vijay sir and told him. He said, ‘Are you serious? He came to you?' I said he did. He said, ‘Give your life to it'.”

“I learnt a lot from Khan sir, by being patient, getting everything right, taking the film to the next level. Shah Rukh sir has taught me to raise the bar. My next film will have even better energy and we'll make something bigger than Jawan,” Atlee added.

Further, the director mentioned that initially, he thought of creating a typical romantic film with SRK. However, the superstar expressed his desire to be a part of a project that fit Atlee's unique style and vision. He wanted to explore something different that he hadn't attempted before. This pushed the filmmaker to create a new concept and storyline that would align with his own creative world.

Meanwhile, in an earlier interview with Siddharth Kannan, the Bigil director spoke about the potential collaboration between, Thalapathy Vijay and Shah Rukh Khan and shared that both actors had expressed genuine interest in working together on a project. Initially, Atlee thought they might be saying this as a birthday gift to him. However, the following day, Vijay confirmed his commitment to the project, while Khan, who was present during this conversation, also shared his eagerness to collaborate and asked if they were serious about making a film together.

Jawan is continuing its remarkable run at the global box office, having recently crossed the milestone of Rs 800 Crore in worldwide earnings. In India, the action-packed drama is rapidly approaching the Rs 700 Crore mark, while its overseas collection has collected Rs 295 Crore.

Humanity Still Exists

Posted By: Vishal Maurya Posted On: Sep 20, 2023

A stranded mako shark that washed ashore on Pensacola Beach in Florida received help from a group of brave Samaritans. Footage of the incident circulating on social media has restored faith in humanity by winning over multiple hearts. According to a report by the Independent, the rescue video was captured by beachgoer Tina Fey on Facebook. She was accompanied by her husband Josh when the stranded marine creature caught the attention of surrounding beachgoers. Josh along with three other men jumped into action to save the helpless fish stuck on the shore. The video opens to show a group working in sync to push the gigantic creature back into the water.

“Babe, look at them freaking teeth," Tina yells while capturing the moment seemingly asking her husband to stay alert. The marine being doesn't react initially but at one point it begins to thrash water around by moving its tail and fangs. The group understands the fish's discomfort and leaves it alone for a brief moment. “Babe, it's too dangerous, don't be doing that," Tina frantically advises her husband to be careful again. Once the men are sure it's safe to resume their rescue mission they begin to drag the shark into the water again. Almost the entire group works during the pulling process, but toward the end, most of them move behind leaving only one to direct the shark's way.

The footage ends with the fish completely submerged in water and moving away from the shore as other beachgoers begin to applaud the brave Samaritans for their quick effort. Take a look at the video here:

The shark rescuers have been bombarded with an abundance of praise and appreciation on social media. Reacting to the clip, a user said, “Acts like these are very important for environmental conservation and animal safety."

Another wrote, “Total respect. Thank you, shark savers."

One more agreed, “What brave souls they are. Wow! That beast is very strong."

Meanwhile, a user simply noted, “Humanity still exists."

According to the Independent, Tina Fey revealed the shark appeared when they were casually swimming near the shore. “It just showed up while we were swimming. I just so happened to be right in front of us. We took action to get him back in the water since the wildlife people and lifeguards told us there was nothing they could do! So, we did our best to try to save him," she reportedly captioned the footage while sharing it on Facebook. It is suggested that Tina and her husband had taken a trip to the beach in Texas to celebrate their wedding anniversary.

Ex-Indian Cricketer Virender Sehwag Calls Out Investment Firm

Posted By: Anita Mamgai Posted On: Sep 19, 2023

Investing in the stock market has become quite popular now. Many people are now actively taking part in trading. From young students to homemakers, people are now actively engaging in trading to generate a passive source of income. But it is important to note that, as much as it is beneficial, it also involves a lot of risks. There are times when the market goes down and the money is lost. Apart from that, there have also been various scammers who work as brokers. Even celebrities have lost their money while getting trapped in these scams. Now, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has also expressed himself on social media about the scams of the stock market.

Virender Sehwag has always been in the limelight for his hilarious tweets and controversial opinions. Recently, the former Indian cricketer hit the spotlight while replying to X channel account holder @ViaWealthy. He commented on a tweet posted by the account and called them out for being fraudulent and scamming people with their money.

@ViaWealthy, which is a SEBI-registered wealthy advisory firm, posted, “20 hazaar se dar nai lagtaa saab. T shirts se lagta hai. A 2008 victim." In response to this tweet, Virender Sehwag called them out and wrote, “Tumhaare jaise bhagode choron se lagta hai, who for a commission buy pump and dump shares in clients account with malafide intentions in a proper understanding with the promoter. You have scammed many innocents, and your game is over."

After Virender Sehwag's comment, many people on the microblogging platform had a series of reactions. Currently, the post has been deleted by the account.

But this was not the only time that the former star cricketer had called out the wealth-advising company on social media. Earlier in February 2022, he tweeted about Pritam Deuskar, owner of Wealthy Via, and called him a fraud. He also wrote that he is part of a syndicated network, has duped several innocent retail investors, and has even stopped answering investor calls. He even mentioned that if the money is not returned to the investors, legal action will be taken against him.

NBFCs relying more on bank loans

Posted By: Tarun Kumar Posted On: Sep 19, 2023
Reserve Bank of India headquarters, in Mumbai. (PTI)

Mumbai: Domestic non-banking financial companies (NBFCs), especially those in the upper-layer category, are increasingly relying on bank borrowings as their primary source of funding, according to an analysis in Reserve Bank of India (RBI)’s September bulletin.

RBI regulations classify the NBFCs into four layers based on the size, activity and perceived risks. The upper layer comprises prominent names like Tata Sons, LIC Housing Finance and Shriram Finance, according to a recent RBI notification.

NBFCs primarily finance their operations through a mix of market borrowing and bank loans, constituting around 75% of total borrowings. According to the analysis, the substantial reliance on banks makes them the largest net borrowers, thus intricately linking them to the broader financial system.

The article pertains to the sector's performance during the 2022-23 period, up to Q3.

Although there were 9,443 RBI-registered NBFCs as of 31 March, the analysis is based on a sample of 205 firms that regularly submitted returns for all quarters from December 2020 to December 2022. “During the assessment period, NBFCs' reliance on banks increased steadily due to (the) low interest environment and lag monetary policy transmission," the article said.

The banks' share in aggregate NBFC borrowings rose to 35.1% last December, against 29.7% in December 2020, the data cited showed.

While the article was written by RBI officials, it had the usual disclaimer that the views expressed are those of authors and do not reflect the views of the organization. “A deeper analysis highlights the banks' preference in lending to NBFCs in the upper layer."

Direct bank borrowings by the upper-layer NBFCs grew steadily in recent quarters, accounting for nearly half of the total borrowings at the end of December 2022. Those in the middle layer relied more on debentures, although their bank borrowings also grew in recent times. Besides, upper-layer NBFCs seem to be more successful in raising short-term debt through commercial papers (CP), it said.

According to the analysis, banks are also key subscribers of the debenture and commercial paper issuances by NBFCs. Therefore, the exposure to the NBFC sector is higher than the quantum indicated by direct lending, it said. “Banks' exposure to NBFC-UL (upper layer) in particular has been steadily rising, primarily due to a steep growth in their direct lending to these NBFCs in 2022-23 (up to December 2022). Bank subscription to debenture and CP issuances of NBFC-UL are also growing at a robust pace, and reflect banks' preference for instruments of bigger NBFCs, which in general have strong parentage and are under enhanced regulation."

The debenture issuances of NBFCs are also subscribed by other market participants such as mutual funds, insurers, retail investors and pension funds. “Going forward, NBFCs need to diversify their funding sources, to reduce excessive reliance on bank borrowings," the article said.

“They need to develop strong governance and risk management standards and be more vigilant about cybercrimes, as the growing digital lending space offers huge opportunities, but also presents novel challenges," it added.

A scale-based analysis of the credit allocation by the authors of the article found NBFCs in the upper layer provide a major chunk of their loans to retail borrowers, while those in the middle layer provided a large chunk to the industry. Government NBFCs that fall in the middle layer are large providers of credit to the infrastructure segment of industries, it said.
