recent visit by His Holiness Pope Francis to the

Central to the pope’s message was caring for the

Republic day marks the birth of our nation By Adv Celvi
Fernandes Tellis | 26 Jan, 2015, 12:54AM IST
For a long

The free people of India wished to make
their own Constitution. The Constituent
Assembly of India took two years eleven
months and eighteen days to make a
Constitution for India.
The consideration of the Draft Constitution
took 114 days. The Constituent Assembly
finished it on the 26th November 1949. This
new Constitution of India came into force on
the 26th January 1950. According to it India
became a Sovereign Democratic Republic.
Since then the 26th January in every year is
observed as our Republic day. Republic means
a state having a Government of the people,
by the people and for the people. People are
the real function-head of all power.

Nearly half of the Fortune 500 companies for
the year 2000 are no longer on the list of
the biggest U.S. businesses. Some have
fallen from their perches due to business
and economic trends beyond their control.
Others made strategic mistakes that led to
their demise. None, however, has remained
untouched by the emergence of the Internet
at the beginning of the millennium.
We are at a similar pivot point now: the
need to understand and harness the power of
digital technology, which is manifesting
itself in seismic changes to organizations'
fortunes. It is a sink-or-swim moment, in
which companies that get it right can
leapfrog the competition. But it is far more
than a question of adapting to new digital
marketing tools, or a passing digital fad in
social media. It is something that is
fundamental to how businesses operate,
behave and think.

Survey from The Weather

Oakville, ON, Jan. 19, 2015
/CNW/ - Canadians have a love-hate
relationship with winter and national survey results
released today, Blue Monday, reveal 43 per cent of
Canadians have experienced or are currently
experiencing winter blues. The survey, commissioned
by The Weather Network, found that from January to
March, Canadians are more likely to report feeling
tired (54 per cent), lethargic (35 per cent) and
depressed (24 per cent) rather than energetic (seven
per cent) and happy (19 per cent). To help Canadians
combat the winter blues, The Weather Network has
partnered with Master Life Coach Bruno LoGreco to
provide practical tips to get us to spring.
