Lenovo remains bullish on its India business
Charts the Unstoppable India plan to sustain leadership position
New Delhi, January 30, 2013: As one of the fastest growing PC markets in the world, India continues to remain a significant contributor to the success of Lenovo in the global PC arena. As the year 2012 came to a close, Lenovo achieved the unique distinction of being the leading player in five out of the seven top PC markets (China, Japan, India, Germany and Russia), and further narrowing the lead between itself and the No. 1 PC maker globally. The company has upheld its streak of outgrowing the overall industry globally for the 14th quarter in a row and its impressive growth in India over the last nine quarters reflects this global average.
Lenovo entered India in 2005, by acquiring IBM’s PC business and since then has grown its market share exponentially in all segments of the PC market. For the quarter ended September 30, 2012, Lenovo retained its numero uno position in the co…

Center reports on the money bankrolling big-spending nonprofits
Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s controversial Citizens Uniteddecision in 2010, nonprofits such as the American Future Fund have played a more prominent role in electoral contests — all while keeping their donors secret. During the 2010 midterm elections, politically active nonprofitsoutspent super PACs by a 3-to-2 margin. The American Future Fund ranked third among “social welfare” nonprofits in spending in the 2012 federal election,according to the Center for Responsive Politics, trailing only the Karl Rove-affiliated Crossroads GPS andAmericans for Prosperity, which is backed by conservative billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch. The American Future Fund has raised more than $60 million, with spikes in contributions coming in election years. Much of that money has come from another conservative “social welfare” nonprofit that doesn’t disclose its donors by name — the Arizona-based Cent…
Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard declare a national election for September 14th, a surprise move for voters. Gillard announced the election date for both chambers of parliament at a news conference in Canberra on Wednesday.

Governments in Australia traditionally give little more than a month's notice of a national election. A rare for a prime minister to announce the date eight  months in advance.

Gillard said she wanted to set the date to avoid a guessing game, and end political uncertainty.Media agencies
