5 ultimate rules of money management

If you think that understanding personal finance is way above your head, you’re wrong. All it takes to get started on the right path is the willingness to do a little reading – you don’t even need to be particularly good at math. To help you get started, we’ll take a look at the most important things to understand about money if you want to live a comfortable and prosperous life. 1. Control your instincts The sooner you learn the fine art of delaying gratification, the sooner you’ll find it easy to keep your finances in order.

Microsoft announces Windows 10, skips 9

Microsoft Corp announced its ‘Windows 10’ operating system replace the largely unpopular Windows 8, skipping a number to mark a leap toward unifying the way people work on tablets, phones and traditional computers. The next version of Microsoft’s flagship product, which still runs the vast majority of personal computers and is used by 1.5 billion customers worldwide, is aimed at recapturing the lucrative business market, which generally ignored the new-look Windows 8. Windows 10 will be “our greatest enterprise platform ever,” said Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s head of operating systems, at an event in San Francisco. Only 20 percent of organizations migrated to Windows 8, which was released two years ago, according to tech research firm Forrester. Many PC users disliked the touch-optimized interface and bemoaned the loss of the traditional start-button pop-up menu. Microsoft faces an uphill struggle in reigniting excitement about Windows. With the rise of Apple Inc’s iPhone…

Debunking criticism that his government has been taking credit for every achievement, the Prime Minister acknowledged the efforts of all previous governments to make India clean. “All the governments in this country have made one or the other effort to do this work. Several political, social and cultural organizations have made efforts in this direction. I greet all those, who have worked,” Modi said in his 25-minute address at Rajpath, where he formally kicked off the five-year-long campaign that will cover 4,041 statutory towns. Administering a pledge to people to make India clean, he said that this task is not the responsibility only of safai karamcharis or the government but of all the 125 crore Indians. He said that Thursday’s campaign should not be seen as a…
