Posted by The Visitor மேல் மே 28, 2008

மாத்ரா (MaTra) அப்படினா நாம தலைவலி, காய்ச்சலுக்கு சாப்பிடர அயிட்டம் இல்லைங்க. ஆங்கிலத்தில இருந்து ஹிந்திக்கு மொழிபெயர்க்கும் Machine Translation ங்கர software. இதை நம்ம நாட்டு விஞ்ஞானிகள் உருவாக்கி இருக்காங்க. கூகில் கம்பெனியும் இந்த மாதிரி ஒரு ஸாப்டுவேர் செஞ்சிருக்காங்க, ஆனா அதைவிட நம்ம ஊர் MaTra மொழிபெயர்ப்பை சிறப்பா செய்யுதாம்.

அதை உருவாக்கிய விஞ்ஞானிகளுக்கு கதம்பமாலையின் வாழ்த்துக்கள்.

இந்த மாதிரி தமிழில் ஏதாவது மென்பொருள் இருந்தா சொல்லுங்களேன்.

Bank chief defends role in crisis

Posted by பிரேமலதா மேல் செப்ரெம்பர் 20, 2007

Bank of England governor Mervyn King is defending his handling of the Northern Rock crisis in a crucial appearance in front of a panel of MPs.His job could be on the line, with discussions under way on whether to renew his five-year term in June.

Robert Peston blogs about the Unstable Governor,

If it had done this three weeks ago when banks were clamouring, Northern Rock might never have feared that it was running out of money.

So it would not have had to approach the Bank of England for emergency support.

And there would never have been that infamous run on Northern Rock – the first run on a British bank for 140 years.

[……………] 

So, although the Bank of England has changed course in respect of the way it is prepared to tackle the crisis in the money markets, it is sticking to the position that it has no regrets about the way that it provided its initial support to Northern Rock.
