Giving more fodder for fun on social media, US President Donald Trump addressed Sundar Pichai on Twitter as “President of Google” after meeting him to discuss issues surrounding its dealings with China and “political fairness”. Pichai is Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Google.

“Just met with @SundarPichai, President of @Google, who is obviously doing quite well. He stated strongly that he is totally committed to the U.S. Military, not the Chinese Military….,” Trump tweeted after the meeting on Wednesday.”…Also discussed political fairness and various things that @Google can do for our Country. Meeting ended very well,” he tweeted.


Google earlier faced flak after media reported that the company was trying to build a secret search engine for China that would censor results. The project was reportedly put on hold after Google faced global outrage.

The search engine giant also faced criticism after a conservative news outlet, PJ Media, last year reported that 96 per cent of Google search results for the US President prioritised “left-leaning and anti-Trump media outlets”.

Trump earlier this month attracted media attention when he called Apple CEO Tim Cook “Tim Apple”. The US President later claimed that he meant to call the executive “Tim Apple” in order to “save time and words”.

After media reported the error, Trump hit out at the “fake news”. “The Fake News was disparagingly all over this and it became yet another bad Trump story,” he tweeted. Trump again lashed out at the media on Thursday, saying, “The Fake News Media is going Crazy”. (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.

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.
