Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be one of the speakers at the India Today Conclave here in March, organisers said on Thursday.
'The Great Churn - Triumphs and Tribulations' will be the theme of the 17th edition of the conclave, to be held on March 9 and 10, the India Today Conclave organisers said in a statement.
Global thought leaders will converge at the forum to discuss and debate issues from around the world.
Apart from Clinton, speakers will include author Yuval Noah Harari, Uday Kotak, Founder and Chairman, Kotak Mahindra Bank, actor siblings Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, badminton players P.V. Sindhu and Srikanth Kidambi with Chief National Coach for Badminton P. Gopichand, Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, and lyricist Gulzar.
There will also be Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, designer Naeem Khan, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, Patidar leader Hardik Patel and more.
Clinton, as the Democrat candidate, lost out to Donald Trump in the US Presidential election. She has in the past made several visits to India, both as Secretary of State and as the US First Lady. The Clinton Foundation works in villages across India.
Amazon seems to have taken a great liking for the Indian market. After deciding to double its office space in India by next year and setting up its largest standalone Fashion Imaging Studio called BLINK in India’s Gurgaon recently, the global ecommerce giant is now planning on setting up Lab126, its secretive consumer devices development arm in the country’s financial capital, Mumbai, according to a report in Factor Daily.
For the uninitiated, Amazon Lab126 is an inventive San Francisco Bay Area research and development company that designs and engineers high-profile consumer electronic devices like Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers, Amazon Fire TV, and Amazon Echo.
Reportedly, the American biggie was considering Hyderabad and Mumbai for setting up its Indian location for Lab126, but the officials seems to have finally narrowed their choice down to Mumbai. Considering Amazon has its Indian data centres also in Mumbai, this seems like a smart choice.
If Lab126’s India’s location does become a reality, this will be the first time that Amazon is setting up this lab outside its home country, United States. Lab126 has a reputation of being extremely secretive about the projects its engineers are working on.
According to a FactorDaily source, Amazon has already kickstarted the process of recruiting engineers for the Mumbai centre. The engineers will be required to work on Amazon’s product lineup in India, which currently includes Fire TV, Kindle and its soon-to-launched Echo.
Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) told reporters last month that “I just think it’s not necessary” when asked about a bill to protect the special counsel, and noted that such a bill would need Trump’s signature to become law.
Schumer, however, argued that Republicans can no longer be confident that Trump won't act.
“For months Republicans have said that legislation to protect the special counsel is not needed because they’ve been assured by nameless people that the president won’t fire the special counsel,” he said. “That assurance has been shaken by the president’s comments last night.”

OTOH, perhaps Q meant something else here. Earlier, Q was talking before about chemicals being used to poison us in our daily lives. What better way to insure chronic exposure to something, than by putting it in the clothes we wear?
