Enlarge ImageToyota has spent the last 20 years honing the Prius’ Hybrid Synergy Drive tech into what it is today, and now other carmakers can buy that tech for their own products. Toyota Toyota recently did something pretty unexpected. It announced that it would allow royalty-free use of thousands of its gasoline-electric hybrid patents, patents it has jealously guarded in the past. It did this to extend the life of hybrid technology in an increasingly electric world, but that’s not where its plans end.According to a report published Friday by Reuters, Toyota has plans to not only act as a manufacturer of whole cars and trucks but also as a Tier 2 supplier. That means that it will supply hybrid components and even entire hybrid drivetrains to rivals. Why would it do that? Well, in short, to save some cash on electrification.See, Toyota has been lagging behind other companies in the development of fully electric vehicles. Catching up to the likes of Nissan and GM will require substantial amounts of cash for development of its own technology, but even more money will be needed to build a manufacturing infrastructure to support EV production.”We anticipate that there will probably be very few automakers who use our patents to develop their own hybrids from scratch, so by using our system and our components, and offering our support, we can work together to develop these cars,” said Shigeki Terashi, executive vice president for Toyota, in a statement to Reuters. Toyota didn’t immediately reply to a request for further comment.If Toyota can sell hybrid stuff to other car companies who want or need help in bringing down their corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) numbers and can’t afford to spend the capital necessary to develop their own systems, then it won’t have to dig quite so deeply into its own pockets.Toyota is already equipping other manufacturers’ vehicles with its hybrid tech. The (decidedly lackluster) Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid uses Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive tech, for example. Toyota will also supply hybrid tech to Suzuki, and the hot-rod hybrid Jimny that could likely result from that hookup will haunt our dreams forever. 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid: A tougher looking electrified crossover Post a comment 62 Photos 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Tags Patents Suzuki Subaru Toyota Share your voice 0 More From Roadshow Auto Tech Hybrids Car Industry Toyota 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous
Bumrah has been the key to Virat-led Indian team’s successGLYN KIRK/AFP/Getty ImagesThey say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Certainly when it comes from the leader of your team, it must be considered a great compliment. This is exactly what India’s ace fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah got from his captain Virat Kohli. The pacer from Gujarat was expected to be one of the stars of this World Cup and help India greatly with his bowling. That is precisely what he did and produced another example of his brilliance.But Bumrah isn’t just great but also very unique. His bowling action is one of a kind and generating high speeds from it, as he usually does, is something that has baffled even the most seasoned critics of the game. It’s an action that no coach would suggest to his pupils and few would be willing to accept but somehow, for Bumrah, it has worked very well.The temptation to copy the action proved too much for Indian captain Kohli and he decided to try his hand at it. ICC’s official Twitter page uploaded a video where the skipper can be seen imitating his main strike bowler’s action during one of India’s pre-game practice sessions. This was probably before the start of play on the reserve day of the semi-final between India and New Zealand.Imitation from the captain is the best form of flattery ?#INDvNZ | #CWC19 | #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/XXsbmr19GI— ICC (@ICC) July 10, 2019Twitter/ICCIn the video, Virat can be seen standing near Bumrah and then imitates his run up – including keeping his head tilted to one side as the bowler does. After he delivers the ball, Kohli takes off on a mock celebration, again mimicking his teammate’s style.Unfortunately for both Kohli and Bumrah, the latter’s action would no longer be seen in the World Cup as India lost their semi-final to New Zealand. However, the brilliance of the fast bowler from Ahmedabad would remain a key ingredient of India’s success for a long time to come. With the Test Championship starting in a few weeks, the importance of Bumrah only increases. Kohli clearly knows the value of his main fast bowler.
Some 3,000 more Rohingyas entered Bangladesh since 22 November putting the total number of Rohingyas at 624,000 since 25 August, said the UN Migration Agency on Monday, reports UNB.As of 25 November, Bangladesh Immigration and Passports Department registered a total of 663, 694 people through biometric registration, according to the IOM Needs and Population Monitoring.Meanwhile, Bangladesh Social Service Department has identified 7,771 unaccompanied and separated children.The report is produced by Inter Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) in collaboration with humanitarian partners that covered 17 November to until 24 November. The next report will be issued on 3 December.This week the ISCG Humanitarian Hub in Ukhia will become operational and the ISCG will deploy staff to the field in order to provide coordination services on the ground for sector partners, government authorities and both national and international nongovernmental organisations.The hub has been constructed by the International Humanitarian Partnership and IOM.Violence in Rakhine which began on 25 August has driven the Rohingya across the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.The people who have arrived in Bangladesh since 25 August came with very few possessions.They have used most of their savings on transportation and constructing a shelter, often out of no more than bamboo and thin plastic.The Rohingya population in Cox’s Bazar is highly vulnerable, having fled conflict and experienced severe trauma, and now living in extremely difficult conditions, said the report.Population movements within Cox’s Bazar remain highly fluid, with increasing concentration in Ukhia, where the government has allocated 3,000 acres for a new camp.
(Top) Nazrul Islam Khan, Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Abdul Awal Mintoo and Morshed Khan. (Bottom) Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury, Mirza Abbas, Habibun-nabi Khan Sohel and Tabith Awal The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has now launched investigation into allegations of money laundering, amassing illegal wealth and suspicious bank transactions against eight BNP leaders.The anti-corruption watchdog has launched the investigation barely two months after a court sent the chief of country’s main opposition political party, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), and former prime minister Khaleda Zia to jail in a graft case filed by the ACC.Another case filed by ACC is pending against her. Besides, some 25 BNP leaders are facing graft cases filed by ACC. The BNP leaders against whom the ACC launched the investigation are: standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Nazrul Islam Khan, Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury and Mirza Abbas, two vice chairmen Abdul Awal Mintoo and M Morshed Khan, joint secretary general and BNP’s Dhaka city’s south unit president Habibun-nabi Khan Sohel and Mintoo’s son and executive committee member Tabith Awal.ACC has also initiated investigation against Morshed Khan’s son Faisal Morshed Khan.ACC officials said the body entrusted one of its deputy directors, Shamsul Alam, with the investigation against the BNP.They said the ACC would send letters to banks concerned by this week, seeking information about the respective persons and would also ask the BNP leaders to submit their wealth statements.ACC officials said the organisation has launched the investigation after some media outlets, quoting intelligence sources, published news reports that “suspicious transactions” of as much as Tk 1.25 billon was made in 30 days’ time in the bank accounts of these BNP leaders.They said most of those whose bank account records show “unusual money withdrawal” are businessmen and the volume of transactions is not unusual either, but the withdrawal was made in cash which, ACC officials said, has created suspicions.The ACC would check if the money was spent other than on business purposes.ACC officials said allegations have it that Abdul Awal Mintoo withdrew some Tk 320 million on 11, 15 and 22 February and his son Tabith Awal withdrew some Tk 200 million in the same month.Morshed Khan withdrew Tk 180 million on 27 February while his son Faisal withdrew Tk 90 million on 26 February.It is alleged that some Tk 210 million was withdrawn from the bank account of Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain from 3 to 12 March and some of the money was withdrawn from outside Dhaka. ACC is also claiming that some Tk 160 million was withdrawn from the account of Mirza Abbas on 28 February and 4 March.It is also being alleged that Tk 70 million was withdrawn from the bank accounts of Nazrul Islam Khan and Habibun-nabi Khan Sohel at different times.BNP has all along been accusing the Anti-Corruption Commission of serving the interests of the ruling quarters.At a press conference on 21 March, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi alleged that ACC is like a one-eyed animal. BNP standing committee member Khandakar Mosharraf Hossain said, “The ACC has launched this investigation based on the reports published in some baseless online portals. How authentic are those reports? Neither me nor my family members have any account with that bank.”Terming the move purely political, he lamented that the ACC has chosen to turn a blind eye to people who have misappropriated millions, especially when the ministries and the Bangladesh Bank have proofs.Senior leader Nazrul Islam Khan said, “This is just another blueprint of the government to keep the active BNP leaders under pressure. The country knows why the ACC is after us when people who have institutionalised corruption are at large.””Such news was published on online portal Bangla Insider on 17 March. Everyone knows who are behind it. The ACC will now carry out an investigation based on that report. The involvement of constitutional bodies in such politicised acts is tarnishing their image, and that of the country as well,” said BNP vice chairman Abdul Awal Mintoo.No ACC official was available for a comment to this end. ACC spokesperson and secretary Shamsul Arefin’s phone did not receive a call despite repeated attempts. He did not reply to a text either.Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) executive director Iftekharuzzaman said, “We hope the ACC will carry out their duties within their legal framework. If they prioritise political identity it will be a blow to their accountability.”
Aysha Siddiqa MinniAysha Siddiqa Minni, wife of slain Barguna youth Rifat Sharif, confessed to her involvement in Rifat murder, claimed superintendent of Barguna police Maruf Hossain on Thursday.The police official came up with the statement at a press conference organised after they arrested Rashidul Hasan Rishan, 20, another accused in the much talked-about murder case.”Minni, herself, admitted her involvement in Rifat murder. She kept close contact with Rifat’s murderers. She even held several meetings with the murderers before and after the murder,” the SP told the press conference.Earlier on 17 July, Minni was arrested after nearly 12 hours of interrogation.In a statement, superintendent of police in Barugna, Maruf Hossain, said the investigation officer’s interrogation of Aysha Siddiqa Minni and analysis of the information she provided him appeared to show her involvement in the murder.On 14 July, Minni addressed a media conference at her father’s residence, where she claimed herself innocent.She defended herself saying those who created ‘Nayan Bond’ and the terrorist group ‘Bond 007’ in Barguna are trying to divert the murder case to a different direction by accusing her.Superintendent of Barguna police Maruf Hossain presents accused Rashidul Hasan Rishan, 20, in Rifat murder at his Barguna office on Thursday. Photo: Prothom Alo”By uploading negative posts, doctored images and comments, a vested quarter has been plotting against me since Rifat’s murder. Their main intention is to direct the case to a different course. Because, those who created 007 Bond group are very influential and rich,” she told the press conference.She made the claim after her father-in-law Abdul Halim Sharif, on the earlier day, told a media conference at Barguna press club that Minni was involved in the Rifat killing.He also demanded her arrest.On 26 June, Rifat Sharif was killed in broad daylight in front of Barguna Government College.On the following day, victim’s father Abdul Halim Sharif filed a lawsuit with Barguna police station against 12. Besides, four-five others unnamed people also were made accused in the case.Main accused in the case Sabbir Ahmed alias Nayan Bond was killed in what police called a gunfight with them on 2 July.As of Thursday morning, 15 people have been arrested in connection with the murder.
