Amid growing speculation over Vijay’s Master releasing directly on an OTT platform, the producers issued a statement on Saturday to put an end to all the rumours.

“As we continue to battle the pandemic, we hope you are all safe and doing fine. We understand and can feel the amount of excitement among the audience to celebrate our #Master in theatres. We await the Big Day to come, as much as you do. With lot of rumours surfacing in the past few days, we would like to clarify our stand on it. Though we have an offer from a reputed OTT service provider, we prefer to the theatrical release, which is the need of the hour for

Here’s Why Master Makers Avoided Historical Blunder!


So, here is the official announcement from the makers of Master. It is on the expected lines and also the right one. They have avoided a historical blunder. Here’s why we think so.

Under the normal circumstances, the Thalapathy Vijay starrer Master would have been a biggie that is keenly awaited by Tamil film industry, only, like any other event movie from the star. However, in the current scenario (post coronavirus recovery period), the entire Indian film industry will likely be looking at Master.

It is all due to the frenzied and crazy fan following enjoyed by Vijay. A film like Master is no doubt a big-screen theatrical experience. The teaser has further made it clear. It is due to take an earth-shattering opening whenever it arrives. And ‘that’ precisely is what the entire trade in India is waiting to witness. Master, whenever it comes, is expected to provide the

Leaving the car behind: Residents in walkable neighborhoods find benefits from fitness to home values | Business

The population shift from cities to suburbs began in the 1930s and was powered by the popularity of the automobile. With a car, there was no longer a reason to live relatively close to work. New homes were designed for the automobile with driveways and garages, and communities reflected that burgeoning mobility with stores, schools, and other places of interest geared not toward pedestrians, but drivers.

Sandile Zungu aims to awaken football’s sleeping giant in Usuthu

By Eshlin Vedan Time of article published15m ago

DURBAN – Umlazi born business tycoon Sandile Zungu is on a mission to transform AmaZulu into the best football club in South Africa. Zungu, 53, officially acquired the KwaZulu-Natal club in October from former long-time owner Dr Patrick Sokhela.

It is safe to say that AmaZulu and other KwaZulu-Natal football clubs have underachieved in the Premier Soccer League era, to the extent they have hardly been feared by any of the big-guns of South African football. Usuthu have not won a major tournament since it claimed the Coca-Cola Cup (now Telkom Knockout) in 1992.

Zungu, who is a teetotaller, certainly does not fit the profile of the average soccer club owner in South Africa.

Besides being the chairperson of the Zungu Investments Company, he boasts a BSc Mechanical Engineering degree and a Masters’ degree in

US is in an ‘income crisis,’ says issuer whose ETF offers a 10% yield

Wall Street’s hunt for income has not been yielding great results.

In a year defined by unpredictability, unprecedented government stimulus and extreme market volatility, generating income has becoming more and more of a challenge for investors, Will Rhind, the founder and CEO of GraniteShares, told CNBC’s “ETF Edge” on Monday.

“[We have] an income crisis in this country,” Rhind said. “Before Covid, … getting 5% income in a portfolio was probably somewhat optimistic. But that 5% has now become 3% or lower in this particular pandemic scenario, so, now you’ve got a situation where people are looking for income like they never have before.”

Enter GraniteShares’ HIPS US High Income ETF (HIPS), which invests in high-income pass-through securities in an effort to find yield in non-traditional areas of the market.

The ETF’s portfolio is roughly 41.5% closed-end funds, 29% asset management and business development companies, 18% real estate investment trusts,
