Google Signs 60Year Lease with NASA for Moffett Airfield in California

first_imgSearch engine giant Google Inc has reportedly signed a deal with NASA to lease and manage the space agency’s Moffett Federal Airfield (MFA) in California for 60 years.Planetary Ventures LLC, Google’s real estate subdivision, will be leasing Hangar One, Two and Three, a flight operations building, two runways and a golf course from NASA. Apart from that, it will also be rehabilitating the historic hangars.NASA said the deal will help the space agency save $6.3 million in annual maintenance costs and Google is expected to pay $1.16 billion in rent over the 60-year period.The lease is a win-win deal for both NASA and Google. The web giant was in search of more space for experimental, research and development purposes and NASA wanted to cut down on maintenance costs of infrastructure.”As NASA expands its presence in space, we are making strides to reduce our footprint here on Earth. We want to invest taxpayer resources in scientific discovery, technology development and space exploration – not in maintaining infrastructure we no longer need. Moffett Field plays an important role in the Bay Area and is poised to continue to do so through this lease arrangement,” Charles Bolden, administrator at NASA, said in a statement.Google reportedly plans on spending $200 million on these properties including refurbishments of the hangars. The company also plans to create an educational centre for the public in the premises.”We look forward to rolling up our sleeves to restore the remarkable landmark Hangar One, which for years has been considered one of the most endangered historic sites in the United States,” David Radcliffe, vice-president of real estate and workplace services at Google Inc, added in the statement.There is no information as to when Google will take over the premises and the tech firm will need to comply with all tenancy rules including environmental compliance.Google and NASA were reportedly in talks of a lease deal since February this year. According to Fortune, Google had earlier signed a deal to build a new office complex in the premises, but those plans were put on hold probably because they were waiting to manage the rest of the 42-acre facility.The new lease gives Google a major foothold in the North Bayshore area of California. It has already taken up offices and other properties in Palo Alto, Mountain View and Sunnyvale, covering most parts of the region. Last month, Google invested $585 million in six office buildings just northwest of its Silicon Valley headquarters.Google is also expanding its footprint in New York City. It recently signed a lease to occupy 1,80,000 square feet of space at 85 Tenth Avenue in Manhattan.”We expect to continue to hire aggressively for the remainder of 2014. Acquisitions will also remain an important component of our strategy,” Google said in a filing, according to Bloomberg.last_img read more

Coca Cola Now Sells Milk Invests in Dairy Brand FairLife

first_imgCoca Cola, famed for its carbonated drinks, is now shifting focus slightly; it is investing in “Fairlife” – a diary products company.At a recent consumer conference, Sandy Douglas, the senior vice president of Coca-Cola North America announced that they will be launching Fairlife in the United States by December and its products will cost double the average price of milk and other dairy products in the market.Why?Fairlife’s products are supremely healthy. Fairlife milk products will carry 50 percent more protein and 30 percent less sugar and will be completely lactose free. They also have a unique filtering system through which they can improve the nutrients in milk.Take a look at this video below:”It’s basically the premiumisation of milk. Our ambition there is to create the Simply of milk,” Douglas said at the conference adding that the test markets have responded extremely well.”…we’ve created a joint venture with a bunch of dairy farmers who are innovative leaders in the dairy industry. So you put that next to Simply and you have a nutrition beverage company with tremendous growth potential,” he said.Douglas also said that the business will take some time to accelerate but when it does pick up, it will “rain money” on the company.”Now to be clear, we’re going to be investing in the milk business for a while to build the brand so it won’t rain money in the early couple of years. But like Simply, when you do it well it rains money later. And we can deliver with our business portfolio before the milk comes on full profit line,” he said.Sexy Ads for Milk? Fairlife has already started advertising in the United states but its campaign seems a little too racy for a milk brand.Fairlife Official WebsiteFairlife has already started advertising in the United States but its campaign seems a little too racy for a milk brand. A few print ads show women dressed in “splashing milk” while captions like “Drink what she’s wearing” and “Milk that Mooves you” are scrawled in bold letters above one of them.The social media is abuzz with these new ads and most think they are ridiculous! But in its defense, FairLife says that the ads were inspired by classic pin up girls. The ads have been created by London-based photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz.”His (Wieczorkiewicz’s) Milky Pin-Ups collection turns real milk into high fashion to recreate the classic mid-20th century pin-ups of American artists like Gil Elvgren (1914-1980),” Fairlife explains on its website.”Wieczorkiewicz’s work epitomizes our fairlife philosophy of embracing the future, with a nod to what’s wholesome and timeless. We hope that our fans recognize an instant classic in our purely nutritious milk,” it added.last_img read more

India never raises illegal migrants issue with Dhaka PM adviser

first_imgGowher RizviGowher Rizvi, international affairs advisor to prime minister Sheikh Hasina, on Friday claimed India has never raised with his government the issue of alleged illegal Bangladeshi migrants staying on its soil.He has asked New Delhi to prove that the ‘illegal immigrants’ of Northeast India are indeed Bangladeshis.”At present they are the residents (whose names are not there in the National Register for Citizens list) of India and India should prove that they are residents of Bangladesh, and not India,” Rizvi, also a historian, said at the India Today Conclave East in Kolkata.Rizvi said most people in Bangladesh see the issue of illegal Bangladeshi migrants in India as an “internal Indian discussion”.”I do want to say I respect it, it is an Indian discussion. And the Indians will discuss and debate what is in their best interest.”We have the closest and the fondest of relationship with the current Indian government. In fact, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi ji is very, very popular in Bangladesh. In 10 years, that I have been adviser to PM (Hasina), this issue has never been raised with us.”Rizvi said he did not find it surprising that New Delhi never broached the illegal migrant issue with Dhaka, but contested union minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju’s statement that over 20 million illegal Bangladeshi migrants were now staying in India.”I don’t think that is very surprising, this is a process. And the process has started, and at some point, the process will come to a point, when this thing might be on the table.”But at that level, many more things will happen. We heard the figure of 20 million. I don’t know where this figure has come from. We can pluck any figure from the air. So we will have to talk about the figure,” he said.However, he said if there were Bangladeshis illegally staying in India, Bangladesh will obviously want to take its citizens back.”The important thing is that there has to be a process to determine. And there has to be a process by which that determination takes place,” he said.Rizvi said the Rohingyas have been persecuted and they were deliberately thrown out from Myanmar as a part of ethnic cleansing and it is not acceptable.”We should distinguish between Rohingyas and those ‘illegal immigrants’ of Northeast India. Both cases are entirely different,” added Rizvi.He said India was providing relief materials to help Bangladesh cope with pressure of sheltering the Rohingya refugees on its soil.”In fact, India is the first country to bring relief to Chittangong. Second, India has promised to build homes for the Rohingyas in Myanmar. It essentially means that Rohingyas would have homes when they go back,” added Rizvi.last_img read more
