Thomas Knoll was the key person who started this amazing program we know today. It all started in 1987 when Knoll wrote a program in order to display grayscale images on his Macintosh Plus. He was able to display monochrome images in his computer. He named his program Display.

Upon knowing this, John Knoll, Thomas’ brother who was then working at Industrial Light and Magic, convinced Thomas to develop it into a full image editing software. Thomas spent six months together with his brother in developing the software. From the name Display, they changed it to ImagePro. Adobe would buy license several years later and rename it to Photoshop.

Barneyscan, a company that manufactures scanners decided to bundle the software with their products. 200 copies of the software were shipped. The software was then demonstrated by John Knoll at the Silicon Valley and Adobe impressed everybody, and later decided to purchase the license. After further developments, Photoshop 1.0 was then released to the market in 1990 but for Macintosh only.


Importance Of Appointed Date & Effective Date in Restructuring

Importance Of Appointed Date & Effective Date in Restructuring  


In the case of merger and demerger, two dates are crucial, the “Appointed Date” and secondly the “Effective Date”. Corporate managers spend a lot of time to plan the exact timing of these dates. ‘Appointed Date’ is normally arranged to secure the interests & objects of the respective companies. And ‘Effective Date’ is finalized by High    Dating   Court depends on upon filing of a final order of High Court with Registrar of Companies.

Importance of ‘Appointed Date’ & ‘Effective Date’:

Any scheme of compromise or arrangement should identify a date in the scheme itself as ‘Appointed Date’. This ‘appointed date’ is crucial for arriving at values of assets and liabilities appearing in the books of Accounts both for the purpose of the transfer to the Transferee company and also for arriving at the value of shares for the transferor and transferee company viz. exchange ratio. Generally, the first day of a month or the first day of a financial year is identified as the ‘appointed date’, though the Court has the discretion to decide any date as ‘transfer date’.

The ‘Effective Date’ on the other hand is the date on which the transferee company files the order of the High Court sanctioning the scheme with the Registrar of Companies for registration and when the order has so filed the amalgamation or arrangement becomes effective or having come into force from the ‘Appointed date’. The effective date is subsequent date and the company has no control over it.

Issues regarding ‘Appointed Date’ & ‘Effective Date’ and their effects on Various Aspects of Restructuring:

1. Identification of Assets & Liabilities of Transferor Company:
As per the requirements of Section 391 to 394 of the Companies Act, 1956 the Transferor company should identify and quantify the assets and liabilities which are sought to be transferred to the transferee company under merger or demerger. This identification & quantification of assets and liabilities should be done as on Appointed Date.

The details of such assets & liabilities may be annexed as a schedule to the scheme. This identification gives certainty to the scheme, as members of both the companies get a clear idea about what is going to be transferred?

2. Changes in the name/status of the company after Appointed Date:
There could be some changes in name, address or status of the company after the appointed date. Normally such changes do not affect the sanction of the scheme before High Court unless they adversely affect the rights & interests or obligations of the company and/or its members and creditors.

3. Accounting Treatment:
Normally the Transferee Company should, upon the Scheme coming into effect on effective date record the assets and liabilities of the Transferor Company vested in it pursuant to the Scheme, at the fair values thereof at the close of business of the day immediately preceding the Appointed Date.

Tools You Need When Starting Your Own Gambling Website

Tools You Need When Starting Your Own Gambling Website

  There is a wealth of information on the internet about gambling and betting. How to start a gambling website, what do people bet on, is a betting exchange better than a sports book or casino website, or do users prefer betting online rather than betting offline? What is lacking in many of these posts is not the information they provide      UFABET    on starting a gambling website, but rather exactly where to start. So Where do you start, you ask? and how do you start? Would you require funding when thinking of starting your own gambling website? Are there legal pitfalls in running an online sports book or casino gambling website?

Asking these questions is only a tip of the iceberg in knowing exactly what you are getting yourself into in running a betting exchange or any of the other gambling websites, but knowing the answers will better your chance or odds in running a successful online gambling site. So where do you start? You can search and search around the world wide web and gather all the information (highly recommended) on starting your own casino, running a proper betting exchange, or on providing a fair online sports book atmosphere to your users, but knowing exactly how to use this information is key in running your outfit.

Before we get into how to use the information you gather properly, you may want to visit some of these places if you have not already done so: gambling forums, casino pages, sports website, news pages on gambling, pages on the “internet gambling regulation act” and how it will affect your online website, laws governing gambling and paying close attention to the dates the country each specific information pertains to and so on.

By now you must be thinking this is a bit to extreme. But ask yourself this: do you know what each gambler want, do you know what will make them use your site over the next Joe website. Simply put you need to know the things that will drive advertisers, sponsors to your site (funding) and most importantly what will drive users to your site. You can have the best house on the block but if not one knows about your house or you, well you get the picture.

If you have visited the suggested headings listed above and read up a bit more on gambling and the laws governing online sports book, casinos, poker rooms and betting exchanges and still wish to continue then read on my friend, you have gotten over the first hurdle. Now that we have you thinking outside the box and have a better understanding on what’s in store for you lets tackle the first and very most important question you would first need answered “Is gambling legal”.

Now this is the most important because if you are thinking of conducting or running a gambling website in a country, city, state, province, town, what ever it may be and its not legal. Like monopoly you will be fined or worst you will go directly to jail. Sorry boys and girls but we need to make one thing clear here being online business doesn’t mean a thing to the government and the authorities. You will need to register a business or acquire a business license (not the same as a gambling license), you will need hosting and you will need a bank account to hold the money generated from your sports book, betting exchange, poker or casino website. So finding out if gambling is legal where will be running your business is extremely important.

To give you a better picture of things 9/10 planning to run a gambling website have had to opt for an offshore operation. Why you ask? Well that obvious of course. In places like Costa Rica there are laws in place for gambling, but there are no law against online gambling neither is there a need for a gambling license (more on gambling license later), but you will again have to do your research, if you are serious about running a sports book or any of the other gambling websites, prepare yourself to gather information. Here is Tip #1 – Speak to a Lawyer (a reputable one if you can) they will shed a LOT of light on your situation and point you in the right direction.

So this brings us to our next question, licensing, and no its not your drivers license. A gambling license is required to run a betting exchange, sports book, casino, poker or any other gambling website most of the time but not always. This is why again you will need to do your research. But you know what they say, when in doubt get one. That was a joke Joe. If you are really unsure speak to that lawyer friend that you spoke to in tip #1 about this and any other documents you may need to complete this process, ask your local gambling or gaming authorities/associations in the jurisdiction where you plan to run your online gambling website for advise. So remember a gambling license is recommended but may not be required. Tip #2 Visit the local gambling authorities.

African Engineers: Attack Of The Killer Bees

African Engineers: Attack Of The Killer Bees  

The African honeybee is well known for its aggression. Some queen bees from Tanzania were accidentally released from a research apiary in Brazil in 1957 and crossbred with the local honeybees to produce an extremely aggressive hybrid that caused alarm amongst beekeepers in the USA when the new ‘killer bee,’ as it was soon dubbed by the media, advanced steadily northwards through Central America.   team building singapore,    In the same year, 1957, Ghana gained independence from Britain but it was not until some twenty years later that scientists at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, began to experiment with modern beekeeping with the native African honeybee (apis mellifera scutellata). Although their work was eventually successful, and beekeeping spread to all parts of the country, there was a time along the way when the ‘killer bee’ resisted human interference with frightening ferocity.

The author has described elsewhere how the Technology Consultancy Centre (TCC) of KNUST introduced the Kenyan top-bar hive into Ghana and began training a first generation of beekeepers. The work began in 1977 with the construction of the first beehives. By January 1981, an apiary had been established in the botanical garden of the university and people from all over Ghana were invited to attend a first national workshop on beekeeping. Of the 53 people who attended, 33 were Ghanaians and 20 were members of the United States Peace Corps who had elected to help promote beekeeping in their widespread duty stations. It was to some of the foreign volunteers that the killer bees directed their sternest assault.

Stephen Adjare, the technical officer in charge of beekeeping, promoted his calling with the utmost enthusiasm. He believed that he had scheduled the first visit to the apiary early enough for the cool of the morning to help calm his bees. However, by the time the party arrived in the botanical gardens the sun was well up and Stephen began to worry that it might already be too hot to disturb a hive. Keen to go ahead with his demonstration of honey harvesting, however, he took every precaution available; his helpers were clad from head to foot in appropriate protective clothing and he checked that their hand-held smokers were working effectively.

Stephen ensured that his large audience were positioned well away from the action and the heavy wooden cover was removed while the hive was enveloped in a cloud of smoke. Then a top bar was carefully prised out and held high to reveal the large hanging honeycomb. Stephen’s moment of triumph was brief in the extreme. The lifted honeycomb was followed instantly by a dense swarm of angry bees which ignored their immediate tormentors and descended en-masse on the unprotected spectators.

The workshop delegates had been briefed in advance that if any bees approached them they should walk calmly away, avoiding swatting the bees, and leaving any stings in place to be removed later by trained personnel. Needless to say, the scale and speed of the assault panicked many of the victims and rendered a dignified retreat impossible for all but a few of the TCC’s experienced beekeepers.

It soon became apparent that the attack was focussed on a short slim lady of mature age. Some of her US Peace Corps colleagues found a hosepipe and were soon drenching her in water in a vain attempt to lessen the onslaught. The TCC director quickly backed his Land Rover alongside and the victim was bundled inside for the short journey to the university hospital. Admitted to emergency care, the lady was found to have sustained more than a hundred stings. She was later moved on to Accra where she received further treatment and made a full recovery.

Almost everybody else not clad in a beekeeper’s suit found themselves with beestings on all exposed areas of flesh. Even heavily bearded

Condo Inspection in Long Island

Condo Inspection in Long Island  

Hiring your own private Long Island condo inspector will provide you with a thorough unbiased, detailed, confidential and professional inspection of your property. These inspectors remain in business because they understand how important it is to know everything possible about a prospective purchase. Seek out a well known and well-respected company throughout the industry. Find someone that will put considerable    Home Inspection Long Island NY    time, effort and care into inspecting your condo. Usually the reports are delivered within 48 hours of the inspection via e-mail. Dream big, relax, and feel secure. No home or condo structure is perfect. Each has its own character and charm. An inspection lets you close the deal with your eyes open. It can help you avoid unexpected repair bills, assist you in purchase negotiations, warranty repairs, or when making future maintenance decisions.

You should have your condo inspected before closing for every single reason that you would have a house inspected. It is a huge investment and you want to know what you are getting, an inspection gives you negotiating power with the seller, your lender might very well require an inspection, your inspection will identify any items or areas that need repair, and it will identify any safety issues.

A Long Island condo inspector will examine your condo the same way that it would a house, looking at the exterior, roofing, grounds, and other components that may be considered “common areas.” Many times these are key areas that are missed by some condo inspectors. The goal is to provide you with the knowledge to make an informed decision. If the roof for the unit is old and about to fail, will the cost of a new roof come out of the regular common charges or will there be a special assessment due? Don’t get burned – you should have your condo inspected before you purchase and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise because “it’s only a condo”. If it has heat, cooling, windows, plumbing, electrical, and anything else that can fail and that you will pay to have repaired then an inspection is a good investment.

Buying a Long Island condo may be the biggest investment you’ll ever make. Although the process is very exciting, it quickly becomes overwhelming. While the condo you have selected may appear to be just what you’re looking for, how can you be sure there aren’t potentially serious unknown defects which can make your investment in your future a costly one? Having your new condo professionally inspected by a professional as early as possible in the buying process, can save you thousands of dollars on items which you may be able to have the seller or builder correct.
At least three in four home buyers obtain a professional home inspection to determine the physical condition of a home before they close the deal, but most condo buyers aren’t as likely to pay attention to a condominium in the same manner and that is a huge mistake. Think in terms of purchasing a condo as becoming business partners with strangers in a multi-million dollar real estate development partnership. Never underestimate the purchase because it is a condo.
