first_imgThe Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released the latest international arrivals data for the year ending December 2014, a record of 7.6% rise in short-term visitors to Australia to 6.9 million – the highest visitor arrivals growth the country has seen in a decade.Australia welcomed 807,100 visitor arrivals during the month of December 2014, an increase of 2.8% compared with December 2013.Tourism Australia Managing Director John O’Sullivan said, “The remarkable performance’ was testament to the industry’s hard work. The industry deserves great credit for delivering such impressive numbers, but now certainly is not the time to look back. There is still a lot of hard work to be done if we are going to hit our Tourism 2020 targets, and our focus is very much about the future.”Tourism Australia has run two successful ‘Restaurant Australia’ promotions in India recently. Tourism Australia teamed up with Vacations Exotica to promote ‘Restaurant Australia’ themed packages on leading English lifestyle and entertainment channels. Vacations Exotica has reported growth in sales of 70% over the same period last year with a healthy number of enquires in the pipeline for the coming months.“Fundamentally, ours is a destination with enormous appeal – assets such as our world-class natural beauty, great food and wine, warm and welcoming people. But these things only become a competitive advantage if they can be successfully converted in to more visits, particularly from high yielding visitors likely to stay longer, travel deeper and spend more during their trips. I think we have shown with Restaurant Australia, that if you identity an opportunity and really go hard, you can deliver impressive results,” he said.last_img read more

first_img4. Helsinki Design MuseumIf there’s one thing the Scandinavians are famous for, it’s beautiful modern design, and the Helsinki Design Museum provides an in-depth overview of how Finnish design has evolved over the years. The exhibition includes examples of Finnish furniture, clothes, ceramics and glassware from the past 100 years or so, and what’s striking is just how revolutionary the simple, smooth lines of the modern Finnish style were in comparison to the more ornate, traditional designs that came before. After a visit to the museum, it’s all too easy to get carried away and find yourself buying hideously expensive new chairs from the famous Artek store just down the road. You have been warned.*Opening times:** (Sept to May) Closed Mon, Tues 11am – 8pm, Wed to Sun 11am – 6pm; (June to Aug) Mon to Sun 11am – 6pmLocation: Helsinki Design District, Korkeavuorenkatu 23Price: Adults €10, Concessions €5-8 7. Take a culinary tour on Restaurant DayThe first Restaurant Day happened on 21 May 2011. Antti Tuomola, Olli Sirén and Timo Santala, frustrated with the bureaucracy involved in setting up a restaurant, instead decided to create pop-up restaurants for one day only and encouraged others to do the same. The first Restaurant Day featured 45 pop-up restaurants, but since then the idea has exploded, and an estimated 1,000,000 customers have now been served in Helsinki and other cities that have taken up the idea. Helpfully, the Finnish authorities tend to turn a blind eye to the flouting of the bureaucratic rules that would normally prohibit this sort of thing, and instead actively promote the Restaurant Days, which take place four times a year. If you can time your visit for one of these celebrations, you might find yourself eating tapas from the back of a bike, or tucking into freshly baked bagels in someone’s living room. Find out the next dates on the website, or plan your city break for the third Saturday of May, when there’s an especially big food carnival every year to celebrate Restaurant Day’s birthday.8. Senate SquareSenate Square is one of the oldest parts of the city, and this huge piazza is home to a checklist of the most important buildings so it’s a great place to start exploring if you’re just on a short break in Helsinki. Among them are the University of Helsinki, the Government Palace and Helsinki Cathedral, the latter topping the square like an enormous white wedding cake. In the centre is a statue of Czar Alexander II, which became a site of protest during the reign of Nicholas II in the early twentieth century. In response to Nicholas’s attempted ‘Russification’ of Finland, locals protested by laying flowers at the foot of Alexander – the czar who re-established the Diet of Finland in 1863. Senate Square also plays host to concerts and various events throughout the year. 3. See Finnish Art NouveauHelsinki is a thoroughly pleasant city to walk around thanks to its clean, uncrowded streets, but chiefly because it’s packed full of beautiful buildings. Much of the city (around 600 buildings) and pretty much all of the Katajanokka district was built in the Art Nouveau style in the early twentieth century. But Finnish Art Nouveau differs in that buildings tend to be almost fortress-like, yet in pastel colours and with splashes of surprising and intricate decoration – a sculpted balcony here, or an ornate door there. Take a stroll around Katajanokka and keep your eyes peeled for these wonderful architectural flourishes. How to get to HelsinkiThere are direct flights to Helsinki from UK airports like Manchester, and 9 different non-stop routes operate from London everyday in under 3 hours flight-time. Finnair and British Airways run the service from Heathrow, while low-cost airline Norwegian Air flies from Gatwick.Helsinki Vantaa Airport is located 20km from the city centre, with a direct rail connection, public buses and hotel shuttles from nearby airport hotels like Holiday Inn Helsinki-Vantaa Airport and Best Western Airport Hotel Pilotti.Start planning your trip now!

Hotel KatajanokkaHotel Katajanokka makes for an unlikely place to stay and is a Helsinki attraction in its own right – until 2002 it was a prison. Then Best Western took over the building and knocked the cells together – each of the resulting hotel rooms was originally two to three cells. But otherwise the prison décor remains, so rooms have enormous metal doors and the gantry that was once patrolled by prison guards is now stalked by holidaying families. The enormously thick walls certainly keep the cold and noise out and give you a snug, protected feeling (mostly because you have a key to get out, unlike the previous residents). 9. Eat at SoppakeittioSoppakeittio, which has branches in all three of Helsinki’s market halls, makes arguably the best soup in Finland, if not further afield. The menu for this restaurant changes daily and usually offers just a couple of soups with bread, but they’re always exceptionally tasty, particularly the seafood varieties. Opening times: 11am – 5pm, except SundaysLocations: Hakaniemen kauppahalli, Hietalahden kauppahalli & Vanha kauppahalli (Old Market Hall)Price: Soups from €9 15. Take a trip to TallinnTallinn, the capital of Estonia, is only two-and-a-half hours away from Helsinki by ferry, and it’s easy to get there and back in a day. With its fairy-tale good looks, soaring church spires and medieval buildings, Tallinn makes for a fascinating contrast with the relatively modern buildings of Helsinki. You should have around four hours to explore (unless you opt to stay overnight), which is enough time to admire the colourful buildings of the old town and scamper up Toompea Hill for the view, then grab some dinner before you leave – try Sfäär for a modern contrast to the historic architecture. Read more about what to see and do in our travel guide to Tallinn. 10. Helsinki MarketsOnce you’ve had your soup, take some time to wander around the beautiful wooden stalls of the food markets – the recently refurbished Old Market Hall is probably the highlight, but the Hakaniemi and Hietalahti market halls are almost equally as charming. Round the corner from the Old Market Hall is Helsinki’s Market Square next to the harbour, which is where you’ll find some of the best souvenir and handicrafts shopping in the city.11. Temppeliaukio ChurchOtherwise known as the Rock Church for its unusual design built into, and out of the rockface, this unique building in the quiet Toolo neighbourhood was constructed in 1969 using existing rock as its walls and a copper dome as the roof. It’s not only a House of God, but an incredible concert venue; check for choral and classical shows during your visit.*Opening times:** According to weekly activities; tel. +358 (0)9 2340 5940 to hear the scheduleLocation: Lutherinkatu 3, TooloPrice: Adults €3, Under 18s freecenter_img 6. Uspenski CathedralWant to see Helsinki from on high? Head to this Eastern Orthodox Church set on a hilltop overlooking the city, harbour and the Baltic Sea beyond. It’s a pretty sight itself, decked out in the ornate architectural style and capped with gold domes that give more than a hint of Finland’s past as a Russian outpost. Look inside to admire the richly decorated and colourful vaults, altars and cupolas, and Byzantine detailing, unlike anything you’ll see in Western Europe.Opening times: Mon to Fri 9:30am – 4pm, Sat & Sun 12pm – 3pm, closed on Mondays between Oct and AprilLocation: Pormestarinrinne 1, Katajanokka peninsulaPrice: Free 12. Seurasaari Open-Air MuseumOne of many islands that make up Helsinki’s archipelago, Seurasaari is a gorgeous oasis of green in the Baltic Sea. Though it’s a beautiful spot to explore on your own, visitors tend to come for the open-air museum dedicated to preserving traditional Finnish life, featuring farm and cottage buildings taken from all over the country, and demonstrating architectural styles spanning four centuries. *Opening times:** (15 to 31 May & 1 to 15 Sept) Mon to Fri 9am – 3pm, Sat & Sun 11am – 5pm. (June to Aug) Mon to Sun 11am – 5pmLocation: SeurasaariPrice: Adults (summer) €9, (May & Sept) €6. Children 7-17yrs €3 Search for flights to Helsinki1. Eat a reindeerReindeer have been a staple part of the traditional Finnish diet since time immemorial, along with fish, game and berries. And they’re delicious, too. In fact Finnish cuisine is delicious full stop, and the standard of food in restaurants across the city is top-notch… along with the prices. That said, it’s generally no more expensive to eat out here than in an upscale London restaurant; a particular recommendation is Ravintola Aino, which serves traditional Finnish food, including reindeer, with a modern twist. 14. AteneumThis elegant white building on Rautatientori Square houses part of the Finnish National Gallery’s collection of national and international art. The Ateneum is the best place to get a handle on the accomplished back catalogue of Finnish art, often overlooked in European art circles, with more than 4300 paintings and 750 sculptures, as well as special exhibitions on graphic artists, architects and designers.*Opening times:** Tue/Fri 10am – 6pm; Weds/Thurs 10am – 8pm, Sat/Sun 10am – 5pm; closed MondaysLocation: Rautatientori Square, Kaivokatu 2Price: Adults €15, Concessions €13, Under 18s free 2. Suomenlinna FortressSuomenlinna is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that makes for a fun day trip. For a start, it’s a sea fortress, spread across five islands and only reachable by ferry (don’t worry, it’s only ten minutes from the city!). Construction on the fortress was begun in 1758 by the Swedes (who occupied Finland at the time) as a defence against the Russians. Nowadays, it’s a popular picnicking spot for Finns, as well as the location for a number of artists’ studios, an arts centre and even a theatre. Clambering around the canons, tunnels and fortifications is enormous fun for the young at heart…and did we mention that there’s a WWII submarine you can go inside? Guided walks are offered in English on Saturday and Sunday so it’s perfect for weekend breaks in Helsinki. See the website for opening times of individual museums. 13. Sibelius MonumentHelsinki’s unusual attractions continue, with this abstract sculpture dedicated to Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, created in 1967. It’s worth a look to marvel at more than 600 steel pipes constructed in a light, organic form by artist Eila Hiltunen, mirroring the nearby trees in Sibelius Park.last_img read more

serious work The general reaction to my question was that this was still true Some felt the percentage may be higher; some contested that These were senior civil servantsjuristsjournalists and academics; but they were reasonably alert personsand it is likely that they have a reasonable perspective on reality So if everybodyor even a large majorityis not for sale we can avoid thinking of ourselves as a banana republic There was however a persistent feelingthoughthat while corruption was still a minority practicemore and more persons in authority would passively ignore wrongdoing rather than confront it as they did earlier This was attributed to earlier a gradualand later an acceleratederosion of Central authority and therefore a condoning of wrongdoing by default Coalition regimesit was arguedtended to acquiesce to wrongdoing Alsothe need for political funds was greater when there was a multiplicity of parties; once the process is underwaytheres no way of knowing where the individual siphoned away largesse collected originally for party purposes I was not too happy with this argument There was nothing in principle that suggested that centralised regimes were less corrupt I felt there was considerable merit in the Rajiv-era argument that decentralisation would in fact reduce corruption in the long runsince it would be more visible as a leakage from commitments made at the local level The question then becomes: can we develop rules for coalition regimes The development of rule-based systems for a polity with an ever-expanding empowerment of groups and individuals becomes a challenge Sometimes the quest itself degenerates into formalisms The first rule has to beof coursezero tolerance for corruption Having said thatis the elite which includes all of

around 40 per cent Through the time I was an MPour personal savings went down by a lot of money nearly Rs 80000 By now MPs and ministers are paid betterbut most of us are paid better tooand we resent any largesse to the political class It is rubbish to think that they are inferior beings But by doing so we force corruption even for those who may want to be honest There are other rules In the

scheme should be for three months and for properties that have come up before 2012 based on charges proposed in 2005 and not 2011 which was far higher The MNS on Thursday opposed the move stating that if the amnesty scheme comes into force then the builders rather than the common man will benefit as they would have to pay lesser for the completion certificate as it would be based on 2005 rates “It is the responsibility of builders to get the completion certificate of the properties they developed” said MNS leader Bala Shedge The PMC moreover had not taken any action against the civic staff who failed to identify such properties and builders who violated the civic rules he said Meanwhile NCP leader Appa Renuse said “There should be action against the builder for not getting completion certificate for the property developed” BJP leader Ganesh Bidkar said the buyer has been suffering all these years as there is no completion certificate for the property and the amnesty scheme would be a relief to them For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Published: November 6 2016 4:17 pm In what could’ve been a professional celeb chat turned into a candid heart-to-heart conversation Top News There are rich men There are philosophers There are actors There are superstars Then there is Shah Rukh Khan who is the combination of everything we have mentioned so far The actor who started off as a dark-skinned Fauji on television soon conquered the show business and became the unofficial ambassador of romance It is very difficult to not stop and stare at him at once if you happen to cross SRK’s picture with a news item Recently the actor turned 51 and much like the old wine Shah Rukh Khan seems to be growing better with age Many books can be written about the sassy MrKhan who always has the perfect answer for everything with a correct tone of sarcasm (highly misunderstood by many) You can ask him one question several times and be sure the answers will be delivered with a different kind of wit each time Shah Rukh was interviewed by film critic Anupama Chopra recently In what could’ve been a professional celeb chat turned into a candid heart-to-heart conversation Speaking about his profession the actor told Anupama Chopra”I’ve made an art and profession out of loving women who are going to get married to someone are already married or engaged I run after them and I get them from wherever they are Sometimes through my charm sometimes I throw them off the building I think I have a problem” Looking back at his career whenever this king of romance played Rahul or Raj onscreen most of the times he fell for women who were engaged to an Aman (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) or Kuljeet (Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge) Speaking about his lesser hit film Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna he made sure to clarify that the man who took Rani Mukherji to a hotel room was his body double and not him There were moments when the actor turned critically narcissistic Enviously he reminded us that the superstar is all that we can never be and so not modest about it “I can be very modest and say it’s a very regular life it’s normal But obviously it’s not normal There’s no other place I’d rather be I love being loved I love being a big star I love being in the public eye I love being criticized I love being controversy-ed I love being Shah Rukh Khan” What’s sexy about SRK “KKK.Kiran Rahul naam toh suna hi hoga Nay Look what SRK finds sexy “I want to learn how to cook Italian food I think it’s very sexy And I’ve got all the other sexy qualities I’ve got a tattoo on I want to learn ten songs on a guitar and sing them to every woman in the world 10 songs on a guitar an open jeep Italian food cooking abilities…looks I have Yeah I’m a full package man come on I deserve to be a superstar (laughs) And I’m humble “ What worth is an interview with SRK without a little bit of gyaan “As long as they make movies there are going to be people outside Mannat to see me I always had this belief – if I ever join cinema I’d be the biggest star in the world I may become that I may not But I wake up with that belief every day When you’ve been working 25 years of your life and you’re working 18 hours a day what keeps you going Why should I find this exciting Every morning to wake up and act without a break for 25 years Nearly 12-13 years of my life have gone in doing this What excites me is the belief That till they make movies they will love me And when they’re not there (which will never happen) maybe it’s only because they’ve changed their places So maybe I’ll go and buy a house there I’m rich enough to do that It’s a belief of an innocent child and it can never be wrong” Finally he added “I don’t wear my stardom like a tuxedo I wear it like a T-shirt And that’s how it should be If you’re a real star you don’t need to prove it in any other way than being gentlemanly kind and cool” You may want to skip

striker SV Sunil feels India are much better prepared this time around for the Olympics than four years ago in London and said playing Germanyin the Champions Trophy will them in good stead against the reigning champions in the Rio Games India are clubbed along side defending champions Germany European champions Netherlands Pan-American Games champions Argentina Ireland andCanada in Pool B in the Rio Olympics SV Sunil in action against Malaysia at the semi-final clash in the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament in Ipoh on Friday And Sunil who vies to be at his best against the mighty Germans said the Champions Trophy will provide them much-needed knowledge about top teams including Germany "They (Germany) are the best team in the world It is my priority to do well against them in the Champions Trophy and at the Olympics Playing them in the Champions Trophy will help us understand their game better ahead of the Olympics We discussed Germany in our previous team meetings and we are aware of their stregth and weaknesses" said Sunil Talking about eight-time champions India’s preparation for the Olympics Sunil hoped for a much-better performance the team in Rio unlike four years ago in London where they finished last among 12 teams "Last time we paid more attention to fitness but this time it is very different We are paying attention to overall development as a team and the training has a lot to do with discipline and team spirit which I think has helped us on the field and in understanding each other’s strengths and weaknesses" he said "The approach we have for the Olympics this time is far more systematic and I feel we are on the right track" the 27-year-old striker from Coorg added Sunil was named as the vice-captain of the team for last month’s Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in Ipoh Malaysia where India finished runners-up Asked Sunil about the new responsibility he said: "I don’t feel that the role of vice-captain brings any pressure to my game Being part of the team for so long I have learnt to handle pressure and that helps me stick to my natural game "Vice-captaincy for me is all about making the youngsters in the team understand their role and motivate them to play to their potential" Hailing from a poor family Sunil said he is indebted to hockey for what he is today "Coming from a poor family in Coorg hockey has given me everything I need to lead a comfortable life And when I play I remember what the game has given me for the sacrifices I have made I will do everything to bring glory for the country" he said Since making his debut in the senior team nine years ago Sunil has gained the reputation of being ‘the fastest man on the turf’ a fact which chief coach Roelant Oltmans too agrees "He (Sunil) is an attacker and brings something exceptional to the team He understands our demands and he keeps questioning what we are doing in a positive way so that he can understand it and translate it to the younger players" said Oltmans This is quite disorienting MS Dhoni is captain on 10 January Ajinkya Rahane is captain on 12 January and come 15 January Virat Kohli will be captain And continue to be captain for the rest of the series unless there are some more farewells and India A matches thrown in for good measure But that’s beside the point: The point is Ajinkya Rahane of India’s ODIs in Zimbabwe fame will be in-charge showcasing his credentials after injury put an end to a bad run against England in the Test series While Mohammad Azharuddin has declared he wants to start fresh Rahane will empathise In the absence of Rohit Sharma he has a shot at opening the innings again And for once not in Zimbabwe not in the IPL but in an ODI India’s Ajinkya Rahane Reuters In over five years since his ODI debut Rahane of Test cricket fame hasn’t quite cut it in the shorter format Or for that matter the shortest format where he isn’t a part of the squad The numbers are stacked against him an ODI average of 3288 a strike rate of a shade less than 80 it doesn’t look like he’s playing in 2017 Maybe 30 some years back it would have been more than acceptable but now you can end up in a state of constant examination A state that creates cracks and questions within an already unsettled game – one that works at forcing the pace somewhat awkwardly playing shots that don’t quite come naturally Of this playing across the line trying to bully a ball on off or outside off to the leg side appears to be a common shortcoming – and a common mode of dismissal A game based heavily on timing is looking to break free from its confines often unknowing of its strengths looking to tap new strengths through brute force that doesn’t quite exist Which is where Rahane appears to be going against the grain The best slipper in the team Rahane is an asset to the team with his fielding alone But fielding alone doesn’t book you a spot in the playing XI it however does make you a great 12th man As Kohli’s deputy in the Test team and possibly his right hand man in the ODIs it’s up to Kohli as much as it is to Rahane now – what next Since his debut in September 2011 Rahane has played only 72 ODIs He’s been more out of than in the team In these 72 ODIs Rahane has opened the batting 42 times His two centuries scored within months of each other in 2014 were both made as an opener However Rahane’s numbers aren’t too different from his overall stats when he opens the batting – the average is just 007 higher (not quite Bond) to 3295 his strike rate in fact slides to 77 from 7898 Today it all seems hunky dory with Rohit’s one-day career 10 centuries batting average of 41 striking at 8443 But what was it like when he had played like Rahane 72 ODIs Uncannily Rohit’s numbers aren’t too different from Rahane maybe it’s a Mumbai thing who knows – Rohit’s batting average from his first 72 ODIs was 3480 (Rahane’s 3288) Strike rates quite similar too Rohit’s was 7914 (Rahane’s 7898) After 72 ODIs Rohit also had two centuries While Rohit had 11 fifties Rahane has 16 After his second ODI century on 30 May 2010 it took Rohit over three years and fourmonths to score his thirdODI century – 60 more ODIs (58 more innings) After that 141* on 16 October 2013 seven more centuries followed two doubles included Today the ODI wait seems more of an investment in Rohit’s career Will India have the same patience with Rahane Is he a part of the 2019 World Cup plans It seems more likely that today both India and Kohli are looking at Rohit and KL Rahul as their first choice openers Both players are also the first choice when injuries strike And that is where Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan could come into the picture The next few weeks may determine how far Rahane’s one-day appetite takes him The next trip to Zimbabwe or a first choice opener in England for the Champions Trophy It’s time for Rahane to trust his hands again Therein lies the timing The time is now Catch Like you often do that runaway ball in
