Donald Trump elected 45th President of United States

Donald Trump will become the 45th US president after a stunning victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton ending eight years of Democratic rule and sending the United States on a new path.
A wealthy real-estate developer and former reality TV host, Trump rode a wave of anger toward Washington insiders to defeat Clinton, whose gold-plated establishment resume includes stints as a first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state. The Associated Press and Fox News projected that Trump had collected just enough of the 270 state-by-state electoral votes needed to win a four-year term that starts on 20th January, taking battleground states where presidential elections are traditionally decided.
CNN reported that Mrs. Hillary Clinton had called Trump to concede the election. Trump’s win raises a host of questions for the United States at home and abroad. He campaigned on a pledge to take the country on a more isolationist, protectionist “America First” path. He has vowed to impose a 35 percent tariff on goods exported to the United States by U.S. companies that went abroad. Republicans are also expected to retain control of the Senate and House of Representatives.

RBI – Ministry of Finance:
 Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today said government’s decision to demonetise the 500 and 1000 rupee notes is good for country’s economy which will rid the nation of black money and corruption.

– Have spoken only to Four individuals since this morning, one of them works in a Bank, who said:
Quite naturally all eventualities of People’s need cannot be anticipated – BANKS are closed Today, cell calls will come flooding in.
There are bound to be debates, arguments & more likely heated interactions, as by & large non of us want to listen, we interrupt & instead put forth our point forcefully.
Coming weekend is 2nd Saturday, Sunday & Monday follow which are Holidays, thereby Banking Transactions & Economic Activity will have restricted activity.
There is HUGE black Money in circulation & by curbing same inflation comes in check.
Real Estate Developers, Financers, likewise Bullion, Jewelry trade comes to ones mind wherein Cash transactions have become a norm. These activities will be deferred /
The second person said People will do an ABC analysis of needs & buy with lower denominations what is Essential. At Petroleum outlets Police Vans have got into position – 2 & 3 wheelers
buy small lots & are likely to demand change which will shortly run out. Most not keeping Debit / Credit cards.
– The 3rd is Domestic Help who have kept Rs 500 & Rs 1000 notes to take to the Post Office / Bank – collect same & once it is a reasonable amount, take it for transmission back home. Assured them, it will get back to being legal tender.
– A person just walked in & said: It is a great move, kudos, Mess is there in too many areas, this could create a Turmoil.
Below is the only digital reaction so far received which is self explanatory.
Celebrities like Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap among others have praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to abolish Rs 500 and Rs 1000 currency in war against black money.

Baba Ramdev said, termination of legal tender of old currency notes will eradicate finance related crime in the country.

In Maharashtra, chaos ruled the streets. Petrol pumps, ATM booths, grocery stores and chemist shops saw long queues of excited and confused people trying to do away with their large notes.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has welcomed the decision of Central Government to curb black money but said that people should have been given some time before making the announcement.
Demonitization of Rs 500.00 & Rs.1000.00 Notes
For getting rid of notes
1. Citizens can deposit money to the bank account through the usual cash depositing process but not huge amount of money straight into account as banks will be under tight surveillance henceforth and every transaction will be done under the camera.
2 . Citizens can also exchange 500 and 1000 rupees in a bank branch with notes of a lower denomination on production of a valid identity proof viz., PAN, AADHAR or Voter ID card for the same, subject to a maximum of Rs. 4000.00. However, how many such transactions can be made by an individual and how frequent such transactions can be made is not clear by the official notification issued.
3. The notification also mentions that the 4000.00 limit will be reviewed in 15 days which indicates that there might be a chance that higher amount of money may be exchanged.
4. Citizens will still be able to exchange notes of 500 and 1000 in Government Hospitals, Govt. Pharmacies and Govt. Petrol Pumps until 11th of November.
5. Citizens can also deposit money to another account provided there are valid reasons for the same. There will be no limit on such transactions.
For getting cash
1. Withdrawal to the extent of Rs. 10000 are allowed from Bank branches until 24th November.
2. The withdrawn money will be in the form of notes of lower denomination. In a week, the maximum amount withdrawn from the bank account will be Rs. 20000.
3. The ATM will be out of operation for the next couple of days. They will be filled with appropriate notes in two days and will resume operation from Friday, November 11th.
4. The withdrawal limit will be Rs. 2000 until 18th November and will be raised to Rs. 4000 from 19th November.
Analysis
Obviously this is a political move. As a master stroke an attempt has been made to regain the popularity that Mr. Modi has lost over last two years and the BJP regime being criticised and sometime being equated to Nazi Germany, this was opportune moment dot right on time, over-sped at the cost of causing great inconvenience to the citizens.
If BJP is able to wins UP election, it will get a adequate number of seats in Rajya Sabha. Once it is in majority in Rajya Sabha as well, you can easily fathom the unilateral decisions that can be taken by ignoring divergent opinions which are contradictory to the government’s stance.
News are pouring in from the entire country as to how businesses and shops have stopped accepting 500 and 1000 rupees notes. This will create a great havoc tomorrow. What will happen to a villager in emergency who can not got to a government hospital and do not have access to facilities for exchange?
The banks would be over-crowded on the next working day i.e. 11th November without ruling out the possibility of some major clashes in different parts of the country. When it comes to money, people tend to loose their temper.
The information in public domain is inadequate and people not understanding the move clearly, there is a possibility of people getting panicked and making wrong move within time. The efficacy of the scheme would depend on the government mechanism in place.
Previously, similar measures were taken post independence of India. In January 1946, currency notes of 1000 and 10000 were withdrawn and new notes of 1000, 5000 and 10000 were reintroduced in 1954. The Janata Party coalition government had again demonetized notes of 1000, 5000 and 10000 on 16 January 1978 as a means to curb forgery and black money, still the demon of black money came back with vengeance.

Make nontraditional memories in Florida this season

Experience a New Twist on Holiday Celebrations in the Sunshine StateMake nontraditional memories in Florida this season

Mumbai, 9th November, 2016 – Jingle bells, Christmas carols and Santa’s sleigh can be found adorning the houses and shops around the United States. But for something truly unique and a little bit quirky, look no further than Florida. Whether its surfing Santas or sipping Santas, there are plenty of events and activities that can make even the Scroogiest spirit come alive this holiday season.
No city throws a party quite like Key West. The vibe may be laid back, but there’s plenty of action on this island paradise. Hot Pink Holidays, held the first 3 weekends of December, brings visitors and residents together to celebrate the LGBT community through activities like caroling with the “Bubbas” and a late night ride aboard the Conch Train. Local business owners show their support by offering plenty of deals and discounts on merchandise. So don your hot pink sweater and partake in a Florida-themed holiday shopping experience that only the Keys can offer.
This December 4, 2016 sports fans won’t want to miss the Snowball Derby stock car races in Pensacola, Florida. Here, some of the biggest names in NASCAR racing can be found competing in this 300 lap course along Florida’s Panhandle. Don’t be fooled by the name though – the only “snow” to be found is via a machine at the annual WinterFest, held in historic downtown. Enjoy reindeer games with Santa’s reindeer, while sipping away on gourmet hot chocolate.
From November 3, 2016 to January 8, 2017, make a wish at ‘South Florida’s tallest Christmas tree’ at Santa’s Enchanted Forest in Miami. At the world’s largest holiday theme park, visitors will find more than 100 rides, shows, games and attractions, including those with the man himself – Santa Claus. Be sure to stay after the sun goes down, as the park is lit up with three million twinkling white lights and a special spot to kiss under the mistletoe.
December 11, 2016 will be a special day for all ‘The Beach Boys’ fans , the day to reminisce the good old harmonies of the 90s, when Bruce Johnson and Mike Love perform the Holiday and Hits in the illumined town of Sebring at Alan Jay Wildstein Centre for Performing Arts, Avon Park (entry by advance booking only).
For a truly unconventional Christmas, head to the Cocoa Beach, Florida to witness hundreds of surfing Santas. In 2009, Mr. George Trosset started a family tradition and along with his wife and son, would take to the sea for a surfing session on Christmas Eve. He told some friends, who told a few more people and the gathering has grown to nearly 300 Santas surfing at the same time. So grab a camera and get in on the action that you can only see in the Sunshine State.
If you’re looking for snow in the Sunshine State, then Frosty’s Christmastime Lounge in Orlando will surely give you the experience you’re looking for. This holiday themed bar features snow frosted windows, flaky flurries and a drink menu that includes coconuts roasting over an open fire.
If theme parks and events aren’t enough to satiate your Christmas appetite, consider a visit to the town that’s in the holiday spirit 365 days a year – Christmas, Florida. Located just 20 minutes from Orlando, this quaint little city holds plenty of holiday spirit. Send well wishes to loved ones on holiday post cards with a real ‘Christmas’ postmark. Learn how the early American pioneers celebrated the holidays at the Fort Christmas Historical Park, where the first weekend in December, a ‘Cracker Christmas’ is hosted, featuring pioneering demonstrations, crafts, food and more.
