Pune: Odisha FC and Hyderabad FC will eye their second win in the Indian Super League 2019-20 season as the two sides come face-to-face at the Shree Shiv Chhatrapati Sports Complex in Pune on Wednesday. The teams have not exactly hit the ground running and find themselves in the wrong half of the table. While Odisha have six points from seven games and are placed seventh, Hyderabad are rock-bottom with just four points from as many games. The teams have struggled in front of goal as they have only two goals to show from their last four outings. In their last four matches, Odisha FC have only managed to garner a single point, which was away to Chennaiyin FC. Coach Josep Gombau has time and again spoken of his preference to play an expansive brand of football and not giving importance to yielding results through a pragmatic approach. "Tomorrow is a crucial match. It is a massive game for us. It's all or nothing. We are with a chance to get to nine points and we are close to fighting for … [Read more...] about ISL 2019-20: Odisha FC Take on Hyderabad FC in Pune as Both Eye 2nd Win of Season

Apple Inc. started selling its new Mac Pro desktop computer on Tuesday, complete with eye-watering pricing options that can push the cost north of $50,000. The new machine, built in Austin, Texas after Apple got tariff relief from the Trump administration, starts at $5,999 for specifications that some programmers, video editors, and photographers might consider measly. Fully loaded, the computer costs more than $52,000, and that’s excluding the optional $400 wheels for easily moving the machine around an office. For some professional users, the cost of Apple’s new computer is just part of doing business. But for most consumers, the Mac Pro’s price is shocking. As one of the most expensive personal computers in the world, some Apple users quickly compared the cost to a car. The base product includes 256 gigabytes of storage, low for professional computers in the same price range. A 4 terabyte option is an extra $1,400. An 8 terabyte upgrade is coming later, … [Read more...] about New Apple Mac Pro’s price leaves users wide-eyed; can cost $52,000

Why did you decide to launch a brand campaign now? Campaigns become relevant and necessary only when there is a specific message to convey to the larger audience. It is that need to communicate which determines the timing of a brand campaign. As Oyo has expanded its reach in various parts of the country, actually more than 500 cities, with multiple brands, we felt that it was necessary to remind ourselves as well as our customers, of the core promises that we are making. Growing up in India, we have all been subjected to the humiliation of having felt cheated by some unbranded guest house or hotel whether it was in terms of the quality of service or the price that we had to pay. The ‘Raho Mast’ campaign humorously picks up on some of these real-life situations and reassures the customer of our brand promise.Young start-up brands that challenge the status quo also attract a lot of flak and criticism.

Video PlayerClose By Oliver Trust BERLIN, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- Ahead of their last Champions League group game priorities have changed for Bayern Munich. Crossing swords with Tottenham and their unorthodox star-coach Jose Mourinho is no longer the main issue left for 2019. While a defeat this Wednesday evening could increase the turmoil around the Bavarian side, the heads of the club's leaders already turn to the Bundesliga duels against Werder Bremen, SC Freiburg, and VfL Wolfsburg waiting before the winter break. Considering that the Bavarians have already qualified for the round-of-16 in the Champions League (like Tottenham), the side's poor performance in the national league moves into focus. Currently placed seven points behind leaders Moenchengladbach in seventh in the table, Bayern is not only in danger to lose the 2019/2020 title-race at an early stage but to miss qualification for next season's Champions League campaign. The clash with Mourinho is far from a warm-up session … [Read more...] about Analysis: Does gate-crasher Mourinho increase Bayern’s turmoil?
