CBSE Reschedules Class 10 Board Exam Date Sheet 2018 But Not For Everyone

New Delhi, March 9: Do you know CBSE is rescheduling the Class 10th Board Exams paper? But, that’s not for every other student you see. It is for none other than 15-year-old Anish Bhanwala, the young shooter who will be arriving from his maiden International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup in Mexico to write his board exams as soon. Anish’s father Jagpal said that his son would be appearing for his papers as early as two in the morning.

Anish would be appearing for two papers in the six-day gap between his arrival from Guadalajara, Mexico, and departure for the Junior World Cup in Sydney, Australia. In an unprecedented move, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has agreed to rearrange three papers for the child prodigy.

Quipping in, Jagpal had earlier mentioned as to how children had to choose between studies and sports. He later thanked the Sports Ministry, Sports Authority of India, the national federation, CBSE and his school for the arrangement made.

The Bhanwals finally have been able to breathe a sigh of relief after CBSE decided to re-conduct three of Anish’s papers that was Hindi, Social Sciences and Mathematics — scheduled on April 16, 17 and 18, respectively. The CBSE took the decision on the request of the Sports Authority of India, who made an appeal after Anish had approached them. In fact, even the National Rifle Association of India had written to the school authorities that Anish be allowed to take exams later.

Anish will be making the final of men’s 25 metres rapid fire pistol in Guadalajara and the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast from March 30 to April 15. Also, he had beaten Gurpreet Singh at the nationals in rapid fire event and had then come up with good scores in the trials at the Karni Singh ranges in Tughlakabad.

5 Foods You Should Never Reheat

It is a common practice to make food, store the leftover and reheat it at the time of consumption. A microwave is your friend when you need to reheat the food. It is easy and convenient. However, reheating some foods can make them dangerous for consumption. Here is the list of foods that you should never reheat. (ALSO READ 5 harmful food combinations you must avoid).


Hard-boiled egg

Eggs contain protein and it should be consumed fresh. Reheating a scrambled or boiled egg can make it toxic. It can be bad news for your tummy.




Potato should also be consumed fresh. Also, you need to refrigerate the leftover immediately as leaving it at room temperature can cause growth of microorganism. This can turn the vegetable toxic. Reheating this food will cause loss of nutrition. (ALSO READ Vegan Diet: 10 Best Vegan Sources of Protein That Will Help You Build Muscles).


Popcorn chicken

Popcorn chicken

Like eggs, chicken is also rich in proteins. Eating the reheated chicken can lead to digestive issues. If you have cooked chicken stored in your fridge, use it in cold salad instead of reheating it. If you are reheating it, cook it thoroughly.




Mushroom is another vegetable that you should eat fresh. Reheating will deteriorate the proteins present in mushrooms and can negatively affect your digestive system.  (ALSO READ 5 reasons to eat 4 soaked almonds in the morning every day!).

Automotive Tip – Removing Haze or Film from the Inside of the Windshield

Question = ” I bought a used car, & the windshield has a haze or film on it, that won’t come off. I wash it & then it comes back, what can I do?

Answer = The haze or film is usually from cigarette smoke. That’s right either the ex-owner of your car was a smoker or if the haze/film just became a problem someone while driving or riding in your vesicle is smoking. The bad news is you’re stuck with it, the good there is help.

After 20 years of installing auto glass, I’ve seen people try everything, with no luck. It always comes back even if the glass is replaced. Why? The smoke gets in the A/C/Heat Filters, the dashboard, headliner, & upholstery. So, when you use your A/C or heater the smoke is recirculated especially on the windshield if you use the defroster.

The Cure is simple but has to be repeated often. First you’ll need to get a couple items

#1. Paper Towels (thicker, the better),

#2. Glass Cleaner (any will work but the best to use is a foaming glass cleaner, comes in a spray can & can be purchased at your local auto supply store),

#3. A bottle of Rain-X Anti-Fog. The first step is to wash the interior of the windshield at least twice making sure to remove any/all signs of the haze/film (tip if you can remove the rearview mirror), then take a clean paper towel & apply the Rain-X Anti-Fog to the windshield be sure to keep adding more to the towel & to cover the entire windshield. It seems to work & last longer if you apply a fair amount(don’t skimp or soak) Depending on the amount of time you drive & how often the A/C or Heater is used, will determine how often this process will need to be repeated.

Automobile Dealerships – Valuing Blue Sky

Blue Sky is the intrinsic value of an automobile dealership, over and above the value of its tangible assets. It is sometimes equated to the goodwill of a car dealership.

Most articles regarding the blue sky value of new car dealerships cite a multiple of earnings formula, such as three times earnings, four times earnings, and so forth. The idea that “blue-sky” can be determined by anything times anything is just plain wrong.

Even NADA the National Automobile Dealers Association in its publication entitled “A Dealer Guide to Valuing an Automobile Dealership, NADA June 1995, Revised July 2000 bemuses, in part, with respect to valuing a dealership by using a multiple of earnings: A Rule of Thumb valuation is more properly referred to as a “greater fool theory.” “It is not valuation theory, however.”

In its Update 2004, NADA omitted its reference to “fool”, but referred to the multiple formula as rarely based upon sound economic or valuation theory, and went on to state: “If you are a seller and the rule of thumb produces a high value, then this is not a matter of great concern. Go for it, and maybe someone will be stupid enough to pay you a very high value.”

A dealership’s blue sky is based upon what a buyer thinks it can produce in net profit. If potential buyers think it cannot produce a profit, the store will not sell. If it can produce a profit, then variables such as desirability of location, the balance the brand will bring to other existing franchises owned, whether or not the factory will require facility upgrades, and so on and so forth, determine whether or not a buyer will buy that particular brand, in that particular location, at that particular time.

I have been consulting with dealers for nearly four decades and have participated in over 1,000 automotive transactions ranging from $100,000 to over $100,000,000 and have never seen the price of a dealership sale determined by any multiple of earnings unless and until all of the above factors have been considered and the buyer then decided he, she or it was willing to spend “x” times what the buyer thought the dealership would earn, in order to purchase the business opportunity.

To think otherwise would be to subscribe to the theories that (1) even though you think a dealership could make a million dollars, the store is worth zero blue sky because it made no money last year; and (2) if a store has been making $5 million per year you should pay say 3 times $5 million as blue sky even though you think you will not produce that kind of profit. Both propositions are absurd. If a buyer does not think a dealership is worth blue sky, then what he is really saying is that he sees no business opportunity in the purchase and therefore, in my opinion, he should not buy the store.

Each dealership is unique with respect to its potential, location, balance that its brand brings a dealer group, and condition of facility. The sale is also unique with respect to whether it is a forced liquidation, orderly liquidation, arms length, insider, or a case where an anxious buyer is trying to induce an unwilling seller. There are management factors to consider, length and term of leases, possibilities or non-possibilities of purchasing the facilities and whether or not the factory wants to relocate the store or to open a new store up the street.

In the car business it is impossible to pick a dealership or a franchise out of a hat, multiply its earnings by some mystical number and predict either what the dealership is worth, or what price it would sell for – and it doesn’t matter if you are talking about a Toyota, Honda, Ford, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, or any other dealership. At any given time one franchise might be considered more or less desirable than another, but they are all valued in the same manner.
