Presidential Election 2017: AIMIM may vote for UPA candidate Meira Kumar

Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) may vote for the United Progressive Alliance’s candidate Meira Kumar in 17 July presidential polls, party sources said on Saturday.

Party president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi and nine legislators of the party in Telangana and Maharashtra may cast their votes for the Congress leader.

AIMIM, a former constituent of UPA, is believed to have taken a decision after weighing all pros and cons.

The party has seven members in Telangana Assembly and two in Maharashtra Assembly. Meira Kumar had written a letter to AIMIM, seeking its support.

AIMIM’s move is significant, considering the bitter relations with the Congress ever since snapping of ties in 2012. The party had been under attack from Congress leaders for contesting elections in various states as they felt that this was leading to split of secular votes.

AIMIM’s move is also seen as an affront to Telangana’s ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), which has announced its support to National Democratic Alliance (NDA) candidate Ram Nath Kovind. The party is an ally of TRS.

Owaisi’s support to NDA candidate was ruled out as the BJP which heads the alliance remains his number one political rival. He had been slamming the candidature of Kovind while citing his alleged statement that “Muslims and Christians are alien to this nation”‘

However, the party was not likely to support the UPA candidate either. It was believed that it will stay away from polling.

In the previous presidential elections, AIMIM had voted for UPA candidate Pranab Mukerjee.

Adobe debuts Project Rush, its new all-in-one video editor

Adobe today announced the launch of Project Rush, a new video editor that takes the core features of its pro tools like Premiere Pro, After Effects and Audition and combines them into a single, more accessible tool. Don’t get too excited yet, though, the new tool will only be available later this year (and my guess would be a launch at the company’s Max conference in October).

The target audience for Rush is the average YouTube creator who is looking to get professional-looking results — and do so fast because the expectation on the platform is for regularly pushing out new content. Rush wants to become the all-in-one video editing app for creating and sharing online content and to do so, the team decided that it had to ensure that Rush was available on any device, no matter whether it’s a high-powered desktop or an iPhone. All projects are automatically synced to the cloud, so you can work from anywhere.

In building Rush, Adobe decided to leverage the technology it had already developed for its professional tools. That means when you tweak a video clip’s color, for example, you are using the same underlying algorithms as a video editor who works in Premiere, for example. Rush will also support Motion Graphics templates for building title sequences and graphs in videos and it’ll use the company’s AI tools for improving the audio of video clips. There is also an integration with Adobe Stock, in case you need a bit of stock footage to spice up your video.

Based on the demo I saw, this all looks pretty intuitive and quite a bit more like iMovie than Premiere.

Once you’ve created your video, the next step is obviously publishing it and in the spirit of helping creatives work faster, Rush features built-in publishing support for all fo the major sharing platform, be that YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat.
