Apple spent $60 billion last year with 9,000 American component suppliers and companies, an increase of more than 10 per cent from the year before — supporting more than 450,000 jobs.

“Since 2011, the total number of jobs created and supported by Apple in the US has more than tripled — from almost 600,000 to 2 million across all 50 states,” the company said in a statement as it readied to announce the results of its first quarter of fiscal 2019 on Tuesday.


Just over a year ago, component manufacturer Finisar was awarded $390 million from Apple’s Advanced Manufacturing Fund.

To expand production of a critical part of the “TrueDepth” camera system, introduced with iPhone X, Finisar turned an unoccupied building in Sherman, Texas into a bustling operation full of people who will supply that future business, said Apple.

Apple on January 2 revised down its expected revenues from $89 billion to $84 billion for the first quarter of fiscal 2019.

Apple shares fell after it lowered its revenue estimate and President Donald Trump said he was not bothered about the tech giant’s concerns.

Trump said that China was the biggest beneficiary of Apple, more than the US “because they build their product mostly in China”.

“I told (Apple CEO) Tim Cook, who’s a friend of mine, who I like a lot, make your product in the US,” the President had said.

In a letter to investors, Cook had acknowledged that the revenue shortfall in its guidance was partly due to China’s trade tensions with the US. The slowdown in the Chinese economy also impacted its revenue, he said. (IANS)

Doris Lessing who won a Nobel Prize in Literature

London (CNN)- At five o'clock in the morning, the esteemed 86-year-old astrophysicist Jim Peebles was woken suddenly by the telephone ringing.

"In previous experience, the only phone calls at that time of night are bad news," he said. This one was great news. "The opening sentence from the caller was: 'The Nobel committee has voted to award you the Nobel Prize in Physics. Do you accept?'" Peebles recalled. The wording threw him. Who wouldn't accept a Nobel Prize? "You know the Bob Dylan fiasco?" he said during a phone interview with CNN. "That might have put the wind up them."The "fiasco" Peebles mentions refers to the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was controversially given to an utterly unimpressed Dylan.Aside from being ever-presents on college campuses in the 1960s, little connects Peebles, an expert in theoretical cosmology, with Dylan. But one of the starkest contrasts might lie in their reactions to winning a Nobel -- and the songwriter is far from the only laureate whose crowning turned out to be an awkward affair.

The five committees are notoriously secretive, fiercely shielding their choices from the outside world -- including the laureates themselves, who are told of their victories just minutes before they are announced to the public.

Sindoor implies the longevity of a woman's marriage to her husband in the Hindu tradition

Married Hindu women are recognised by a red streak of vermillion in the middle of their foreheads. This is traditionally called 'sindoor', which is derived from the Sanskrit word sindura, meaning 'red lead.'. Sindoor is traditionally powdered turmeric and lime, sometimes red saffron, or red sandalwood. It is also called vermilion, or Kumkum.
