As the incoming HP Inc President and CEO Enrique Lores announced restructuring plans that will save $1 billion by the end of 2022, the company on Monday said it is a global restructuring plan and not any country or location-specific move.

HP Inc last week announced a fiscal year 2020 restructuring plan to simplify its operating model and become a more digitally-enabled company.


The company expects to reduce gross global headcount by approximately 7,000-9,000 employees through a combination of employee exits and voluntary early retirement.

“This is a global restructuring and we’re not breaking down numbers by site or location,” HP Inc said in a statement shared with IANS.

According to Lores, the company is taking bold and decisive actions as it embarks on its next chapter.

“We see significant opportunities to create shareholder value and we will accomplish this by advancing our leadership, disrupting industries and aggressively transforming the way we work,” Lores said last week.

HP Inc. in August announced that Dion Weisler would be stepping down as the President and CEO “due to a family health matter” and would be succeeded by Lores from November 1.

Weisler joined HP in 2012 and has served as President and CEO since 2015.

Weisler will work with Lores to ensure a seamless transition and will remain at the company through January 2020. Following this, Weisler will continue to serve on HP’s board of directors until the next annual meeting of stockholders.

“We will become an even more customer-focused and digitally enabled company, that will lead with innovation and execute with purpose,” said Lores.

Based on the current environment, HP anticipates generating free cash flow of at least $3 billion for fiscal 2020.

In fiscal 2020, the company indicated that it expects to return at least 75 per cent of free cash flow, with a 10 per cent increase in the planned quarterly dividend amount, and the balance returned to shareholders through share repurchases. (IANS)

Swastika, one of the sacred symbols used by many religions like Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

India celebrated a historic day on August 7, as 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics. In the men's javelin throw event, he achieved his greatest triumph, throwing the javelin 87.58 meters on his second try.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.

Gothic dresses displayed in a store

The emergence of the Industrial Revolution in Victorian England brought with it many apprehensions and fears that translated into a new genre in literature: the gothic. Today, the idea of the gothic does not have to much with literature as much as it is associated with fashion.

The Victorians began to wear black more often during the Industrial Revolution to hide the stains of soot on their clothes. Many of the working class were employed in factories. They were newly introduced to technology, the idea of coal as fuel, and the working of machines to serve a certain purpose. This kind of work was hard and messy. Wearing light colours burdened the tired folk when the stubborn stains did not get washed away.
