Windows 10 microsoft

San Francisco, Oct 6: Users installing the Windows 10 October 2018 update have complained that the update has wiped out their user profiles including documents and photos, the media reported.

Since Microsoft has not started automatically pushing this latest update out, only people who visit “Windows Update” manually and check for updates are installing the latest software version, The Verge reported on Friday.

An alarming number of users have taken to social media forums and Microsoft’s own support website to complain about the serious issue.

“Last night I updated Windows 10 and it all went smoothly, but then I find that all my files in Documents are deleted. This included many crucial documents and financial info,” a user-complaint on the Microsoft support page read.

Microsoft is currently investigating the reports, but given these early issues it is not recommended installing the Windows 10 October 2018 Update right now, the report added.

Microsoft has not commented on the issue as yet.

In September, the tech giant had announced a refreshed “Windows 10 October 2018 Update” with new features and enhancements for over 700 million devices running Windows 10.

The update rolled out globally on October 2.

China turned 500K rural Tibetans into ‘branded coercive labourers’

China is pushing growing numbers of Tibetan rural laborers off the land and into recently built military-style training centers where they are turned into factory workers, mirroring a program in the western Xinjiang region that rights groups have branded coercive labour.

Beijing: Beijing has set quotas for the mass transfer of rural laborers within Tibet and to other parts of China, according to over a hundred state media reports, policy documents from government bureaus in Tibet and procurement requests released between 2016-2020 and reviewed by Reuters. The quota effort marks a rapid expansion of an initiative designed to provide loyal workers for Chinese industry.

A notice posted to the website of Tibet’s regional government website last month said over half a million people were trained as part of the project in the first seven months of 2020 – around 15% of the region’s population. Of this total, almost 50,000 have been transferred into jobs within Tibet, and several thousand have been sent to other parts of China. Many end up in low paid work, including textile manufacturing, construction and agriculture.

“This is now, in my opinion, the strongest, most clear and targeted attack on traditional Tibetan livelihoods that we have seen almost since the Cultural Revolution” of 1966 to 1976, said Adrian Zenz, an independent Tibet and Xinjiang researcher, who compiled the core findings about the program. These are detailed in a report released this week by the Jamestown Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based institute that focuses on policy issues of strategic importance to the U.S. “It’s a coercive lifestyle change from nomadism and farming to wage labour.”

China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly denied the involvement of forced labor, and said China is a country with rule of law and that workers are voluntary and properly compensated.

“What these people with ulterior motives are calling ‘forced labor’ simply does not exist. We hope the international community will distinguish right from wrong, respect facts, and not be fooled by lies,” it said.

Every company regardless of size, is important for India: FM Nirmala Sitharaman

New Delhi, Sep 21 : Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday stated in the Lok Sabha that any company whether it is big, small, micro, medium or nano is important for the country.

Saying that “my friends are the companies”, the Minister said under the Companies Act even MSMEs are registered and anybody who is registered under this act and if, unfortunately, comes for a liquidation has to have a solution.

“Your friend, my friend does not matter. All are friends of this country. Unless business is run by small, medium or big that kind of a job which we are talking about will not happen. So, solution is required for everybody,” the Minister said while addressing the Lower House while pushing for the passage of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Second Amendment) Bill, 2020.

The Bill, which was passed by the Rajya Sabha on Saturday, seeks amendment in the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 and replaces the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020 which was promulgated by the President on June 5 this year.

The ordinance had prohibited the initiation of insolvency proceedings for defaults arising during the six months from March 25 this year (extendable up to one year).

Simply put, no insolvency proceedings can be initiated by either the corporate debtor or any of its creditors for defaults arising during this six-month period beginning March 25.

The ordinance came in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which had created uncertainty and stress for businesses for reasons beyond their control. It was also felt that during the Covid-19-induced lockdown, it may be difficult to find an adequate number of resolution applicants to rescue the corporate debtors who may default in discharging their debt.

In parliament registry, Sitharaman said this is among one of those Bills, now an Act, which come very quickly each time when the ground situation requires changes so that this becomes a robust law.

Giving detailed reasons behind amendment in the law, the Minister said the need of such an ordinance has never been contextual in last 100 years. “Such kind of atmosphere cannot be in the coming 100 years too.”

Hinting at the Covid-19 pandemic, the Minister said the dimension and the scale of the pandemic was obvious and therefore the government had to come up with an ordinance which suspended the application of three sections–7,9 and 10– of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code.

“We had to prevent any company which is experiencing distress because of Covid being pushed into the insolvency proceedings. And therefore we had to suspend these sections.”

The Minister said the entire approach that the government has taken is to immediately help companies with some relief and then look at the way in which the second phase can go on.

She said this Bill is the part of the second approach. And the third phase, Sitharaman said, could have some kind of resolution mechanism for those who are not able to survive and hand-holding in particular incidences.
