David and Simon Reuben were born in India to Jewish-Iraqi parents who brought them to London in the 1950s. ‘They had absolutely nothing,’ says Jamie. ‘I’ve heard the stories from my mother – she was the one paying for the dinners when she met my dad.’ The Reuben boys were sent to a state school in Islington. David went on to Sir John Cass Sixth Form College in Stepney, but Simon never completed formal education. At 17, David joined a scrap metals business and began to trade, working nights while he finished college, while Simon started out in carpets, bought out England’s oldest carpet company from the receiver and made enough money from it to start investing in property. Cannily, he bought several shops on Walton Street and the old Pheasantry site on the King’s Road in Chelsea.
When the brothers joined forces, their company Trans-World traded in non-ferrous metals, specialising in aluminium and tin out of London and copper and tin out of New York. By 1984, the company was worth in excess of $20 million. They then made the move into Russia just after the break-up of the Soviet Union, bought up half of Russia’s aluminium production and, eventually, emerged victorious from the ‘Wild East’ aluminium war of the 1990s. They had done business with Oleg Deripaska, the oligarch friend of Nat Rothschild and Peter Mandelson, but that relationship collapsed in a court case in 1995 in which the Reubens claimed damages of $300 million for lost profits.
The brothers have since focused on re-shaping the landscape of London. Their company redeveloped Paddington Basin and they also own Connaught House on Berkeley Square, the John Lewis headquarters in Victoria and some Sloane Street shops among a vast property portfolio.

The town of Kallah in the district of Tarn Taran is 45 minutes from Amritsar through the flat, verdant countryside of the Punjab. Turn off the main road, pass a few farms and homesteads and, set among ploughed fields, there is a pair of two-storey breeze-block buildings that make up the Akaal Purkh Ki Fauj (APKF) public school. The institution, which was constructed three years ago, has 25 teachers and caters for children from kindergarten to year nine. Funding comes from local benefactors: according to head teacher Ravinder Kaur, the parents of most of the school’s 600 pupils are uneducated day labourers.
Very few of the pupils have access to computers at home, yet the devices that the children share — known as the Aakash, from the Hindi for “sky” — are loaded with educational software, including the national curriculum. “We’re studying physics,” explains Prabhjeet Kaur, 15, running her finger down the screen of her device, “the chapter on gravity”. With a single tap, she brings to life a module on linear motion.
Part of the day’s activity is to welcome Suneet Tuli, a tall, elegant Canadian entrepreneur dressed in a dark-grey suit. His company, Datawind, manufactures the tablet devices that the children are using. During the visit, Tuli, who has four children of his own, chats with school staff, recites choruses from traditional Punjabi songs with a group of younger children, and films the event on his Samsung smartphone.
Tuli, 45, often simultaneously clutches two mobile devices. He carries several in a pocket in his carry-on luggage: “This is for Canada, this is for the US, this is for the UK, this is for India…” he explains later in the day, pulling phones from his bag while being ferried back to the city. Multiple mobiles are a necessary part of his armoury — he spends much of his time travelling the world encouraging governments, state-level entities and NGOs to embark on pilot programmes for the Aakash. The list of countries that are investigating the effectiveness of learning with the device includes Uruguay, Argentina, Nicaragura, Mexico, Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal. In November 2012, Tuli presented the device to UN secretary general Ban-ki Moon in New York. The year before he spoke at the World Bank in Washington DC. Tuli spends two weeks a month away from his family, who live in Toronto; consequently, he is a master of negotiating cancelled flights and chaotic airports, largely conducting himself with serenity, although it’s clear that there’s steel beneath his composure.

An Indian researcher has developed a technology that prevents the reverse engineering of software, which will pave path to unhackable software.
Amit Sahai, a UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) computer science professor and a team of researchers have developed a system which allows the user to use the program only for the purpose it is designed for, and prevents any deciphering of the code behind it.
The first ever technology of this kind, the system is based on principle of software obfuscation. In software development, obfuscation is the deliberate act of creating obfuscated code, i.e. source or machine code that is difficult for humans to understand. It prevents tampering, deters reverse engineering.
Some popular Asian Number Plates that would be appropriate for Amit would be
It is indeed a nation obsessed with social media, but a recent report takes the craziness a notch higher. India’s young Facebook users are apparently splurging lakhs on plastic surgeries in order to improve the way they look on Facebook and various other social networking sites
Indians in their 20s and 30s are going under the knife to improve their social media pictures. The report highlights that India, the nation that invented the nose job, is now also spearheading the new trend of “Facebook facelifts.”
One woman who was interviewed said “If you don’t look good on Facebook, then how will you make contacts?”
Men aren’t lagging behind in this aesthetic race. The report suggested that most asian men get chin augmentations that cost over $2,000 (around Rs 1, 18, 680). The reason being during video chats, it is easy to observe someone’s chin.
Anip Dhir, a plastic surgeon was quoted by the LA Times, saying, “When someone is talking on Skype or any other kind of social media network, what you see is the movement of the chin when the lips move.” He added that “A weak chin or a waddle chin, they stand out most because, again, people don’t look confident when they’re talking and the definition of their face becomes less.”
While there exist simpler ways to improve looks, like Photoshop, why people opt for surgeries is because many people use Facebook to find partners. A woman said that “Sometimes you have to meet people in real life too, if you don’t look the same as in your photo, then it’s sort of fake, isn’t it?”
People opt for laser skin treatment, rhinoplasty and chin augmentation, among other procedures, in order to improve their romantic chances on social networking sites. While the social media age is impacting the young and old alike, this Facebook trend certainly seems to be a costly affair.
Young drivers who face steep costs for motor cover could save an average of £201 – or 12.5 per cent – a year by choosing telematics technology over a standard policy, according to data.
Female motorists aged 17-19 were the most quoted group for telematics policies, making up almost a third of all quotes.
WHAT IS TELEMATICS?
Telematics works by drivers having a small ‘black box’ fitted to their vehicle.
This monitors a number of factors, including times driven, accelerating and breaking, and what types of road drivers use.The driver is then able to monitor their progress online and can make any adjustments to their driving style accordingly.
Telematics policies serve to make motorists more aware of how they drive – this in turn can make premiums cheaper. There may be restrictions however, such the times in the day that motorists are able to drive and a maximum annual mileage.
Annual premiums for younger drivers often reach four-figures. This is because inexperience means the risk of them being involved in an accident is higher than average.
Having a black box fitted to the car to monitor driving behavior provides an insurer with a greater knowledge of the driver. It can also influence driving habits – motorists know that they have the box fitted and driving safely will result in premiums falling faster.
Combining head-turning coupé styling with the practicality of a compact saloon, the CLA-Class represents a landmark in automotive design, carving out a new niche all its own.
This not only enhances the CLA’s impeccable road manners but also contributes to its outstanding performance. A choice of two engines, one petrol and one diesel, includes the CLA 220 CDI, which can return up to 62.8 mpg* combined.
In addition, drivers can opt for Sport or AMG Sport model lines, the latter featuring muscular AMG bodystyling and lowered sports suspension. Both offer generous standard equipment, ranging from sports seats to advanced safety technologies such as Collision Prevention Assist.
Technology at your fingertips
Onboard technology includes the Audio 20 radio/single CD, featuring a 5.8” tablet-style display, USB port, Bluetooth® connectivity and pre-wiring for the Becker® Map Pilot navigation system (sold separately).
Alternatively, the optional COMAND Online system brings another dimension to your driving experience. Based around a 7” tablet display, it offers in-car internet access, navigation with 3D maps, Linguatronic voice control, Speed Limit Assist, and MP3 compatibility.
The CLA also comes with Active Park Assist as standard, which not only identifies suitable parking spaces but also guides the car into them. In addition, there’s a range of options for your consideration – from the reversing camera to the Harman Kardon® Logic 7® surround sound system.
The CLA will initially offer a choice of two powerful yet efficient four-cylinder engines: the CLA 220 CDI and the petrol-driven CLA 180. Coupled with the car’s world-beating aerodynamic performance, both offer outstanding performance and economy.
The CLA 220 CDI is paired with 7G-DCT 7-speed automatic transmission and can sprint from 0-62 mph in an impressive 8.2 seconds. Yet it’s still capable of returning up to 62.8 mpg* combined with CO2 emissions as low as 117 g/km.
The CLA 180 can clock 0-62 mph in 9.3 seconds with the agile and responsive 5-speed manual transmission ensuring an engaging driving experience. CO2 emissions are as little as 130 g/km and on the combined cycle it returns up to 50.4 mpg*.
