Perhaps a jolt of electric torque and efficiency will be just what the brand needs to stay competitive. On the eve of the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, Cadillac has surprised the media with a first look at an upcoming electric crossover SUV, perhaps the first of many electric vehicles to come for the marque.After recently learning that the Cadillac luxury brand would become General Motors’ “lead electric vehicle brand,” we all expected to see an EV unveiled soon, just not this soon. That said, we’ve only so far seen renderings of the electric crossover with few details regarding specs.Enlarge ImageGM is vowing to reposition Cadillac as an EV brand. Cadillac The EV’s name and specific details regarding its powertrain and range will be revealed closer to an also yet-unspecified launch window. So far, what we do know is that it will be based on GM’s upcoming future “BEV3” electric vehicle platform. The electric Caddy crossover will be just the first in a range of vehicles to make use of the platform, which has been designed to accommodate front-, rear- or all-wheel drive configurations. Expect to see BEV3 underpinning a wide range of GM vehicles globally over the next few years.The rest of the Cadillac brand is also ramping up for lineup overhaul, starting with the XT6 crossover which also debuted ahead of the Detroit show this week. Cadillac also expects to debut about a half-dozen new models — roughly one every six months — leading up to 2021, including the next-generation Escalade and an upcoming performance sedan. How many of those will be plug-in vehicles? We’ll just have to wait and see.

IMA Jewels showroomTwitterThe SIT investigation into the multi-crore IMA fraud has seen a major twist after the investigating officers arrested the assistant commissioner of Bengaluru City police (North) LC Nagaraj on Friday for taking bribe from IMA director Mohammed Mansoor Khan.LC Nagaraj, who is the assistant commissioner of the revenue department, had received Rs 4.5 crore bribe for issuing a no-objection certificate (NOC) to Khan in order to raise a bank loan. The SIT sleuths have also arrested a village accountant Manjunath for helping Nagaraj carry out the transactions with Khan. This is the first time that government officials have been arrested in connection to the IMA Ponzi scam, which had defrauded nearly 50,000 of its investors. BCP North Assistant Commissioner (Revenue) LC NagarajTwitterNagaraj was appointed by the Karnataka government as a competent authority to probe over the functioning of IMA after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) issued a circular against the firm. He knew about the financial irregularities committed by IMA but concealed the facts and submitted a clean report favouring the firm. He has been arrested for misusing his position and for extorting money.Nagaraj, according to sources, had accepted the bribe from Mansoor in three instalments, two instalments of Rs 2 crore each and one of Rs 50 lakh with Manjunath serving as a conduit to transfer the bribe, reports Deccan Herald.He had earlier claimed that he tried to take actions against IMA and Khan by slapping several notices against the company.

She was not provided with food, Malati said. Having no other option she started working as a domestic help in some houses. She earned a little money, which she used to buy food. Sources informed that a few months ago, she was forced to transfer the property in her elder son’s name. Reportedly, they started torturing her even more after her property was taken by her son.

You’re not just imagining it: You’re getting more robocalls.Next year, almost half of all calls to cell phones will not be business calls or check-ins from loved ones, but scam calls. That grim forecast is according to First Orion, a company that makes caller ID and call-blocking software.In 2017, First Orion estimated that about 3.7 percent of all calls to mobile numbers were spam. Today, they make up about 29 percent, but by early 2019, the company projects that proportion will skyrocket to 45 percent.Some of the numbers for those incoming calls probably look eerily like your own phone number. (For me, the first six digits are often the same as mine.) That’s to trick you into thinking the call might be coming from someone who lives near you, whom you might know. If you’re like me, you’ve wisened up to this trick, dubbed “neighborhood spoofing,” and decline each call.But for those who are fooled and answer, only to realize it’s the same pesky automated call from the same familiar-looking number again, there are tools out there to block these spammy scams, one number at a time.The deluge of unwanted calls disrupts our busy days. As a reporter, I’ve more than once had my audio recording of an in-progress interview paused by an incoming call. Worse, they target individuals based on demographics, with attempts to convince immigrants they’re in legal trouble or fraudulently persuade people to wire them money, posing as utility companies, charities and more.More than half of all complaints the U.S. Federal Communications Commission receives pertain to unwanted calls, The Washington Post reports.There are several ways to combat this onslaught, but be aware that the perpetrators of scams are savvy, and have found workarounds to number blocking and other measures individuals can take. For one, they don’t honor the “Do Not Call” list many households are on to thwart telemarketers. First Orion is in the process of developing new “CallPrinting” technology, which it plans to implement through a major U.S. mobile carrier. Already, T-Mobile provides its subscribers with “Scam Likely” caller ID messages.As Entrepreneur described in a piece on banishing distractions earlier this year, an iPhone user can tap the blue circled “i” symbol next to the number in their recent calls list and select “Block this Caller.” Android users can hold down the number in their recent calls list, then select block. That is, until the next scam call comes in from a different number.Check out Entrepreneur’s Guide to Reducing Unneeded Distractions and Time-Sucks so You Can Be More Productive for more tips on blocking robocalls and managing other types of interruptions.
