Sonam Kapoor, who was admitted to a hospital in Rajkot after she complained of sore throat and high fever, has been tested positive for swine flu.

The actor, who was shooting for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in Gujarat, has been admitted to Sterling Hospital.

“Sonam Kapoor tested positive for swine flu today and she is being treated at Sterling hospital in the city,” Rajkot district collector Manisha Chandra said.

“She probably contracted swine flu from her physical trainer in Mumbai and by the time she came here she was already suffering from the symptoms,” added Chandra.

Kapoor was hospitalised after she complained of cough, respiratory problems and mild fever, Medical Director of Sterling Hospital Dr Kamal Parikh told PTI.

Salman and director Sooraj Barjatya are shooting in Gondal near Rajkot for the last one week.

She was admitted to Kokilaben Ambani hospital in Mumbai last month after contacting a respiratory infection.

Sonam, who is the daughter of actor and producer Anil Kapoor, is known for her roles in ‘Delhi-6’, ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Doli Ki Doli’.

When South Africa came back to international cricket, West Indies wasn't the force it had been a decade ago, though with Brian Lara leading the batting unit and Courtney Walsh and Curtly Ambrose very much in the mix, it was not a weak team by any 

South Africa skipper AB de Villiers won the toss and elected to bat against West Indies in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) in Sydney on Friday. AB de Villiers and Jason Holder will be 

South Africa has to replace Vernon Philander, who pulled up with a hamstring injury after bowling just four overs against India. Kyle Abbott, known for his expertise in the slog overs, is the likely replacement. The team will also consider replacing

The other-worldly brilliance of De Villiers was in full cry in the past two meetings between these two teams and it will be fair to say that a hat-trick is not far from the reach of the South African skipper. It is West Indies' batting that 

There is little that the South African captain can't do with the bat and West Indies bowlers will still be recovering from the aftershock of the batting carnage last month, that saw De Villiers bring up the fastest One-Day International (ODI) century

iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 Update: 5 Reasons It’s Worth Installing Now

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 Update: 5 Reasons It’s Worth Installing Now
Feb
28

The iOS 8.1.3 update is a month old and after using it daily on the iPhone 6 Plus, it’s clear that many users should install this update to fix problems and prepare for the upcoming iOS 8.2 release that will build on one of the great features.

After a rough start Apple is still working to fix iOS 8 problems and the latest update is the iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 update. Apple finally fixed several annoying problems with this update and after a month landscape issues remain a problem of the past. In short, the iOS 8.1.3 update delivered the iPhone 6 Plus experience I’ve been waiting for.

The iPhone 6 Plus landscape issue was not as bad as on the iPhone 6, and I did not experience the same WiFi connectivity issues as my colleague Adam Mills, but there were some small issues that routinely got in the way of the iPhone just working.

This is why you should install the iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 update now.

This is why you should install the iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 update now.

After using the iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 update for a month, it is clear that this is the best software to run on the device yet. Battery life is solid, bugs are few and far between and it is certainly worth installing now.

Fixes Many Issues Problems

The iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 update fixed an issue were some apps would not show in Spotlight and it also fixed a major problem that prevented some users from logging in to iMessage and FaceTime.  On my iPhone 6 Plus, the iOS 8.1.3 upgrade fixed the landscape issue completely. The iPhone 6 Plus no longer gets stuck in landscape mode and it is in the correct orientation more often.

Here is what you need to know about the iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 update.

Here is what you need to know about the iPhone 6 Plus iOS 8.1.3 update.

If you use Spotlight to quickly find apps, like I do for the 69 best iPhone 6 Plus apps I keep on the device, you will love this upgrade. If you have landscape problems this is a no brainer, upgrade today.

There is also a potential to fix many other problems. If you are running into issues on iOS 8, iOS 8.1 or iOS 8.1.2, you should update to see if your problems are fixed, even if they aren’t in the listed changes.

Few Problems for Most Users

There are some iOS 8.1.3 problems, but I am only experiencing one small issue. With all the use that my iPhone 6 Plus gets each day the battery life is great and the performance is spot on.

The only real problem I am running into relates to the lock screen camera. Sometimes when I try to swipe up to open the camera, the swipe goes about halfway and then slams back down. It’s not clear why this happens, so I started using Control Center to use the camera from the lock screen. The problem is sporadic and not a deal-breaker.

Personal Hotspot Stability

OS X Yosemite Features - Instant Hotspot

After installing iOS 8.1.3 on the iPhone 6 Plus the personal hotspot issue that lets my Macbook Pro running OS X Yosemite connect without fiddling with the iPhone 6 Plus settings is much more stable. This may be partially due to OS X Yosemite upgrades, but either way it is a reason to upgrade your MacBook and your iPhone 6 Plus to the latest software. As someone who works mobile much of the time, this is an amazing upgrade.

You Don’t Need to Jailbreak

There is no iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak and we will not likely see one. Apple fixed the security hole that jailbreak tools used with iOS 8.1.3. The iOS 8.2 release is rumored for March, so we may need to wait for this update to arrive before there is a new jailbreak.

If you want to jailbreak, stay on iOS 8.1.2 until there is official word about the iOS 8.2 jailbreak, but if you don’t need these iOS 8 Cydia tweaks and iOS 8 themes, go ahead and upgrade today.

You Plan to Buy an Apple Watch

Apple Watch Apple Pay

If you are still on iOS 8 and you plan to buy an Apple Watch you can get a jump-start by upgrading to iOS 8.1.3 so that you can use Apple Pay. Apple added Apple Pay in iOS 8.1, so users still on iOS 8 can’t try it or set it up. If you are one of these users and you plan on buying an Apple Watch you can upgrade to iOS 8.1.3 and set up Apple Pay now. This will let you use it on the iPhone 6 Plus to learn how it works before you buy an Apple Watch that you can also use to make Apple Pay payments. The iOS 8.2 update will still offer Apple Pay, so you don’t need to upgrade now, but it is handy to know how Apple Pay works and try it out before adding a new device to the mix.

'House of Cards' in Season 3 on Netflix remains a powerful, MacBeth-like meditation on power and corruption, says Dominic Patten.

In the case of "House of Cards," the answer depends on, of course, the character. There's still a lot of Frank Underwood left to dig into: The Frank of Season 3 is a less desperate creature — and savvier as well — which makes 

Fasten your rib bibs and light up your nightly cigarettes, because the new season of “House of Cards” is waiting in your Netflix queue. Like all things, some of the things are different and some of the things are the same.

Monaco shocked Arsenal 3-1 on night of defensive errors and missed chances by Arsène Wenger's side in the Champions League last 16.

What was supposed to be a game which provided relatively safe passage into the quarterfinals of the Champions League became Arsenal's Titanic as they went down 3-1 to Monaco at the Emirates this evening.

ABOU DIABY could remain at Arsenal past the end of the current season.

After United and Chelsea, Arsenal make £30m a year from Emirates, Liverpool make £20m a year from Standard Chartered and Manchester City make £20m a year from Etihad. At the other end of the scale, Crystal Palace's deal with Neteller is worth not quite 

Most analysts expect wages and transfer fees to go up more than a notch or two, so would it not be wise for Arsenal to spend this surplus before a new era of Premier League spending gets underway in order to steal a march on their rivals? There's a

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s stomach for free-market economics faces a major test on Saturday when the first full Budget will be unveiled by Finance Minister Arun Jaitely.

Reaping the benefits of low global prices for oil, India’s main import, Modi’s government sees itself in a sweet spot with spare cash to modernize ageing roads and railways without busting fiscal deficit and inflation targets.

“Let us stop unnecessary expenditure so that money can reach the poor,” Modi told Parliament on Friday after the Economic Survey report committed to bringing the fiscal deficit down to 3 per cent of gross domestic product – from more than 4 per cent at present – in the medium-term. “We believe in optimum utilisation of our infrastructure,” he said.

Test for reform zeal of Modi government in make-or-break Budget today, tax sops likely

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will present the first full year Budget of the NDA government on Saturday and is widely expected to push forward the ‘Make In India’ campaign.

An overhaul of economic data has propelled India to the top of the league of fast-growing major economies, and the current account deficit is projected to fall below 1 per cent in 2016, which would help stabilize the rupee and build up reserves.

But expectations for a further shift in expenditure from subsidies to infrastructure are sky high among investors who made India the best performing stock market in Asia after China last year on hopes Modi’s government brings sweeping reforms to labour, tax and land laws.

The rally has continued in 2015 on expectations that legislative reform will push ahead stalled private investment and consumer demand, and reverse a decline in corporate earnings to make Asia’s third-largest economy a global growth driver.

The Budget being hyped as a ‘make or break’ exercise, is widely expected to unveil sops for tax payers while pushing forward the ‘Make In India’ campaign. Coming as it does after the Delhi electoral defeat and the Assembly elections scheduled in Bihar later in 2015, speculation is on whether the Budget will be populist. There is expectation that the Finance Minister could raise tax slabs or hike investment limit in saving instruments.

He is also likely to pursue the path of fiscal consolidation and keep the fiscal deficit target at 3.6 per cent of GDP, down from 4.1 per cent expected in 2015. Besides sops to individual tax payers, he is also expected to unveil initiatives to boost investments by corporates and promote manufacturing as part of the ‘Make In India’ campaign that aims to make the country a global manufacturing hub and create jobs.

The Economic Survey released on Friday underlined the need for ‘Big Bang’ reforms to boost growth to 8-10 per cent in the coming years. Besides , it has pitched for raising public investments to drive economic growth and improving business environment by making regulation and taxes less onerous.

Jaitley, who in his maiden Budget in July 2014 had outlined his approach to providing relief to individual tax payers, is expected to continue this in the BJP government’s first full year Budget on Saturday. in 2014, he had raised the personal income tax exemption limit by Rs 50,000 to Rs 2.50 lakh and also raised by same amount the exemption from payment of I-T on savings to Rs 1.50 lakh.

However, this time around Jaitley, according to experts, may choose only one of them as he looks at additional revenue to boost public spending and push economy to high growth path. He may also look to raise the tax exempted investment limit in health insurance as well as exempt savings in pension schemes at all three stages — entry, accrual and withdrawal.

Analysts warn that Indian stocks are overvalued and that equity markets could see a sell off of 6-8 per cent if the pro-growth measures in the budget fall short of expectations. Modi has capitalised on low oil prices to shake off some of the fuel subsidies that have hobbled India’s national accounts for years. But he has been unable to pass reform in the upper house of Parliament, where the Bharatiya Janata Party-led government has no majority.
