OUR EVERGREEN COMPANIONSHIP

The evergreen association between cats and humans goes back to over a thousand years. Today we have quite a lot of evidence from fossil records of early human settlements that shed light on the inextricable links between cats and humans although most of the cats in these cases are thought to have been wild in nature. Among the early humans, the Egyptians were formerly thought to have been the first to resort to the taming of cats some 3600 years ago as is evidenced by the presence of the skulls of cats being found in Egyptian cat burial grounds. However recent evidence now suggests that the domestication of the cats most probably took place even earlier than this, some 10,000 years ago as humans settled down and began to cultivate grains. Evidence in this regard from an area in Israel that is also referred to as the Fertile Crescent indicated the presence of cats and it is assumed that cats played a role in controlling rodents in grain stores of this area. Moving on further, there is also a more authentic report of a first domestication of cats some 9,500 years ago from Cyprus where a cat was found in the grave of its possible owner.

THE PET CARE ECOSYSTEM IS ON THE VERGE OF EXPONENTIAL GROWTH AND DISRUPTION

Supertails is your one-stop solution when it comes to pet wellness and health care needs. You can shop for pet food, accessories, grooming essentials and even book online vet consultation for your pets. The trio, Vineet Khanna, Varun Sadana and Aman Tekriwal, who founded Supertails have worked together in start-ups like Snapdeal and Licious. Vineet and Varun come from IIM Lucknow and Aman is a Chartered Accountant. It did not take long for them to decide that they were not cut-out for big established companies. Vineet with a stint of 5 and half years and Varun with 3 and a half years with Tata and Uniliver respectively started working with start-ups. Their working together in Licious (fresh meat brand) is what triggered a dream of starting off something of their own.

A Day In The Life Of Global Trade

Viewed from a desk on wall street, trade can look like an inaccessible agglomeration of breathless headlines about escalating economic wars and sterile data. Yet up close, the buying and selling of goods and services is an astonishing organism: Here, geopolitical decisions and the markets’ responses to them have daily physical consequences. ¶ To capture an ordinary day during this extraordinary period in the history of the global economy, Bloomberg Markets deployed reporters across the world to see the inner workings of trade up close. From storefronts in Seoul and Tokyo to border crossings in Africa and the Middle East, Wednesday, Dec. 4, was ostensibly a day like any other. What the reporters saw were the nuts and bolts of a global economy that—whether because of the march of technology or the consequences of rising protectionism and shifting trade patterns—is confronting an inevitable and possibly irreversible wave of change.

Echeverria, reo solitario en su propia casa de San Jerónimo

El expresidente Luis Echeverría, quien fuera todopoderoso en el régimen del partido de Estado, envejeció en su casa, cercado por las acusaciones de perpetrar la matanza de Tlatelolco en 1968 y orquestar el Halconazo de 1971, de las que fue exonerado “por falta de pruebas”. Hasta allá lo alcanzó una intriga, pero no de opositores o de víctimas del poder represivo que una vez encabezó; fueron sus propios hijos los que tomaron el control de su residencia, expulsaron a su personal de confianza y le quitaron la autonomía sobre su dinero. Todo se sabe por las revelaciones a Proceso de quien fue su asistente personal, María Modesta Gil Cedillo.
