Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple Project

ISKCON Sri Lanka has initiated a grand project for Lord Krishna in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

This will be a landmark project of ISKCON Sri Lanka in the Capital City Colombo.

The ISKCON Sri Lanka was established in the year 1976 at No: 188, New Chetty Street, Colombo -13.

This temple was started in a small way and now it has grown bigger in terms of the activities undertaken by the temple. The property of the temple was purchased on 2007 by the generous donations received from Temple Members, Devotees, and Well-Wishers. Also the deities of the temple Radha and Krishna were donated by Tirupati, Tirumala Devastanam, India.

Now ISKCON Sri Lanka is constructing a new temple at the same location in Colombo with more facilities to accommodate more devotees and to facilitate various spiritual and social activities. The construction of the temple is under way and the cost of the temple construction is estimated to be around Sri Lankan Rupees 150million (Which is around USD 1.1 million).

Google and Microsoft will include a kill switch in the their smartphone.

The technology allows for a stolen Google (GOOG) Android and Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30) Windows Phone-powered Nokia (NOK) device to be disabled, making it useless to the thief  With Google and Microsoft on board, kill switches will be available for 97% of the smartphone market, said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who made the announcement.

Newer versions of Apple’s iOS currently include a kill switch called Activation Lock and tracking software that requires a password before the iPhone or iPad is reset. In May, Samsung launched a similar system it calls Reactivation Lock.

Schneiderman issued a report citing data that showed the number of smartphone thefts were on the rise, but that thefts of devices with kill switches were decreasing.

Although the technology is spreading, some older phones can’t or likely won’t be updated. “With the majority of phones still without a kill switch, smartphone-related thefts and violence remain a tragic reality,” Schneiderman’s office said. “Criminals now target devices not likely to be equipped with a kill switch, increasing the importance of immediately implementing the life-saving technology across all manufacturers.”
