Lisa Haydon Teams up With Beauty Brand to Talk About Women's Challenges. (IANS)

Model-actress Lisa Haydon has teamed up with beauty brand MyGlamm to launch a campaign urging Indian women to end eve-teasing by communicating their confidence by turning on their eyes through a campaign titled #TurnOnYourEyes.

The campaign aspires to create awareness about the euphemisms that exist within the social and cultural spheres in India, by requesting fellow citizens to reach out to the masses through social media to spread the message and create sentience, to help remain in the nation’s consciousness.


“This is a cause I can relate with as I have experienced this and see women experience this around me every day. It’s time we stood our ground with confidence, feeling no shame,” Lisa said in a statement.

The campaign celebrates the modern woman of today and spotlights the challenges faced by women in the country with regard to Eve teasing and sexual harassment, urging them to glare back, and battle the perceptions and misconceptions laid down in our country, said a statement.

The project also explores the experiences of gender norms, while encouraging and empowering women to voice their concerns and incidents, to work towards a rewarding solution and a lasting change.

Pat Gelsinger, CEO - Intel

Intel saw its stock tumbling by more than 8 percent after the chipmaker said the industry-wide component shortage affected its PC chip business during the third quarter (Q3). Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger told CNBC late on Thursday that he didn't expect the semiconductor shortage to end until 2023. "We're in the worst of it now, every quarter, next year we'll get incrementally better, but they're not going to have supply-demand balance until 2023," Gelsinger was quoted as saying.


The company delivered its Q3 results with revenue up 5 percent (year-over-year) driven by strong demand in its DCG and IoTG businesses, despite the highly constrained industry-wide supply environment. "Q3 revenue was $18.1 billion slightly below our guide due to shipping and supply constraints that impacted our businesses," George S. Davis, Chief Financial Officer, said in a statement. He also announced plans to retire from Intel in May 2022. In the third quarter, the company generated $9.9 billion in cash from operations and paid dividends of $1.4 billion.
