The Oxford Word of the Year 2023 has rizz

Telugu super news,Monday, 4 th December 2023 (Oxford, UK and New York, NY) – By issuing a call-out to the public to have their say on this year’s Word of the Year, Oxford University Press (OUP) has sparked debate and discussion around language for a second year running. After
asking the public to refine a shortlist of eight words, all chosen to reflect the mood, ethos, or
preoccupations of the year, more than 30,000 word lovers across the world had their say.
OUP is pleased to announce that the Oxford Word of the Year 2023 is rizz.

Rizz was chosen by the

language experts at OUP as an interesting example of how language can be formed, shaped, and shared within communities, before being picked up more widely. It

speaks to how younger generations create spaces—online or in person—where they own and
define the language they use. From activism to dating and wider culture, as Gen Z comes to
have more impact on society, differences in perspectives and lifestyle play out in language,

The Oxford Word of the Year is a word or expression that reflects the past twelve months in
some way, having potential as a term of lasting cultural significance or providing a snapshot of
social history. Supported by evidence of real language usage, OUP’s language experts track
candidates as they emerge throughout the year via the constantly updated Oxford Monitor
Corpus of English, analysing frequency statistics and identifying words or expressions that
have been recently added to the language (neologisms). Previous words

UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL 00.01 Monday 4 December 2023

chosen by OUP have included vax (2021), climate emergency (2019), and, by public vote for
the first time, goblin mode (2022).

This year, through head-to-head competitions over a four-day voting period, a shortlist of
eight worthy contenders was narrowed down by the public to four finalists: rizz, Swiftie,
prompt, and situationship. Language experts at OUP considered the corpus data, the votes,
and public commentary around the words to choose Oxford’s Word of the Year for 2023.

Speaking about this year’s Word of the Year campaign and the winning word, Casper
Grathwohl, President, Oxford Languages, says, “It has been incredible to see the public once
again enjoying being a part of the Word of the Year selection. Witnessing thousands of people
debate and discuss language like this really highlights the power it has in helping us to
understand who we are, and process what’s happening to the world around us.

Given that last year ‘goblin mode’ resonated with so many of us after the pandemic, it’s
interesting to see a contrasting word like rizz come to the forefront, perhaps speaking to a
prevailing mood of 2023, where more of us are opening ourselves up after a challenging few
years and finding confidence in who we are.

Rizz is a term that has boomed on social media and speaks to how language that enjoys
intense popularity and currency within particular social communities—and even in some cases
lose their popularity and become passé—can bleed into the mainstream. This is a story as old
as language itself, but stories of linguistic evolution and expansion that used to take years can
now take weeks or months. The spike in usage data for rizz goes to prove that words and
phrases that evolve from internet culture are increasingly becoming part of day-to-day
vernacular and will continue to shape language trends in the future.”

Amrutanjan Comfy rolls out menstrual hygiene awareness initiative across more towns

Telugu super news,December 4th, 2023:  The company, which has already raised awareness among 4.5 lakh young girls across 1,450 towns in India about menstrual hygiene, is now rolling out the initiative in 360 towns across Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh to reach out to another 2.5 lakh girl students across four states in India to raise awareness as part of the next phase of its Project Disha initiative. Comfy Snug Fita fast-growing menstrual hygiene brand from the house of Amrutanjan Health Care.

At the end of the third phase, Project Disha would have directly impacted 7 lakh girls in over 1,800 towns across India. As part of the drive, the company also distributed their Sanitary Pads – Comfy, which offers 80% better absorption than cloth and are priced reasonably. Now in its third year, Project Disha has been implemented in 10 states, covering 900 towns, 400 schools, and 100 Anganwadi centers. The project extends its reach to homes and high-footfall areas.

Project Disha is part of Amrutanjan Comfy’s commitment to increase awareness about menstrual hygiene and educate women about the benefits of using sanitary pads over cloth usage. The company recognises the pivotal role that proper hygiene plays in women’s health and well-being, and it wants to empower them by dismantling the barriers that hinder their access to essential menstrual hygiene products.

Mr. S. Sambhu Prasad, Chairman & Managing Director, Amrutanjan Health Care Limited, said, “Elevating women’s hygiene transcends societal duty; it stands as a fundamental necessity. Fostering a robust and healthier society hinges on guaranteeing that the women in our communities not only have access to top-tier and affordable hygiene products but also receive comprehensive education on the subject. We acknowledge that the prosperity of our nation is intricately linked to the well-being of its women. Thus, our unwavering commitment is geared towards actively contributing to the realization of this imperative goal.”

Menstrual health awareness and education remain limited in many parts of India, with 50% of women aged between 15-24 years still using cloth for menstrual hygiene due to affordability and accessibility challenges. Raising awareness about women’s hygiene in rural areas is of paramount importance, as it directly impacts multiple facets of life. Access to hygiene resources and knowledge not only safeguards their health but also empowers them, enhancing their self-esteem and dignity. Moreover, it plays a crucial role in education, as girls with the knowledge and resources for good hygiene are more likely to attend school regularly with fewer hygiene-related interruptions. In addition to the personal and educational benefits, improved women’s hygiene can have economic implications, such as reduced healthcare expenses and enabling them to actively participate in income-generating activities.

Amrutanjan Healthcare has also worked with the Samvedana Development Society to create menstrual hygiene awareness and promote sanitary pad usage in Uttar Pradesh’s Hardoi district during FY22. Through education, access to high-quality products, and awareness-building, Amrutanjan hopes to transform communities, empower women, and create a healthy future for all women.

Kartik Aaryan becomes the face for House of McDowells’s Glassware with their all new campaign #YaaronWaaliBaat!

Telugu super news,India ,november 30,2023: “A best friend is someone who, when they don’t understand, they still understand.” —Nancy Werlin

Friendships have a way of blossoming unexpectedly, whether it’s reconnecting with an old friend, bonding with a neighbor over random hobbies, or forming a connection with a stranger in a new city. We often don’t realize the lengths we’d go to cherish our connections with our yaars, or how much these friendships help us grow, learn, and get us to explore the sides we never thought we had. It is what House of McDowell’s Glassware calls – #YaaronWaaliBaat. Yaaron Waali Baat is an expression of the heartwarming connection that goes above and beyond to constantly embrace the limitless possibilities of not just existing friendships but also those encountered on the go.

Bringing alive this very emotion, is the ultimate Yaar of our generation- Kartik Aaryan. The actor embodies the very spirit of today’s generational dynamics, and his presence not only enhances the appeal of the brand but allows us to forge authentic and meaningful connections with the audience. The actor, known for getting into the skin of the character, went to the lengths to learn the ISL and perfect it for the TVC. 

Just as we go that extra mile for our friends, Kartik Aaryan in the latest campaign film for House of McDowell’s Glassware showcases his ‘Yaaron Waali Baat’ and the journey of traversing through a special gesture for his Yaar by re-enacting an iconic scene from his movies, but this time in sign language to ensure that his friend, who hearing impaired, feels special and included in the celebration. 

This campaign strongly emphasizes that sometimes going an extra mile through small, yet meaningful gestures can unlock limitless possibilities while bringing to life the how inclusion is a critical part of all friendships. The ad serves as a powerful reaffirmation that there is no joy quite like the joy of ‘Yaaron Waali Baat’.

Varun Koorichh, VP, Marketing & Portfolio Head, Diageo India, said “We are thrilled to announce our latest campaign featuring superstar Kartik Aaryan as the face of House of McDowell’s Glassware. As a brand, we strongly believe in friendship as a medium to uplift each other and bring out the limitless possibilities of the bond we share with our yaars. This strategic collaboration not only heralds a new chapter for House of McDowell’s Glassware but also signifies a deliberate move to leverage Kartik’s cinematic embodiment of friendships, notably portrayed through his infamous ‘friendship pegs.’ What stood out was how Kartik made sure in getting the sign language right and like the film, he actually did undergo a lot of coaching to learn ISL.

Speaking on his association with House of McDowell’s Glassware, actor Kartik Aaryan said“As an actor I’ve had the pleasure to experience incredible moments in life but when I reflect upon the true priorities that shape my life, friendships take the center stage. I am extremely elated to be associated with a brand like House of McDowell’s Glassware that has served as a catalyst for fostering friendships. Shooting for the brand and understanding their ethos of Yaari has been an absolute blast. I couldn’t be more excited about it. While my career has been an exhilarating journey, it’s the friendships that I’ve made along the way that have truly enhanced the storyline of my life making this partnership extremely personal and special for me.”

The beautiful film was conceptualized by DDB Mudra and executed by Nineteen Films

SAMCO Mutual Fund Introduces Dynamic Asset Allocation Fund (DAAF) Offering Unmatched Investment Stability and Growth Potential

Telugu super news,Mumbai, India,November 28, 2023 – SAMCO Asset Management Private Limited, a distinguished investment management firm, is thrilled to announce the launch of the Dynamic Asset Allocation Fund (DAAF). This unique fund is designed to provide investors an unparalleled blend of stability, growth potential, and downside protection in today’s dynamic market environment.

This is India’s first DAAF that follows momentum model with capability to move to debt entirely in tough times. There does not exist similar model in the category. Models of most of the other Hybrid BAF/DAAFs follow valuation models built on P/B, P/E, etc.

One of the key challenges faced by investors in India has been the fear associated with market volatility and drawdowns. SAMCO Mutual Fund recognizes these concerns and has developed the DAAF with a focus on reducing volatility and drawdowns while optimizing returns.

With SAMCO DAAF, investors can enjoy the advantages of equity investments while minimizing drawdowns and maintaining the flexibility to withdraw their capital when needed.

SAMCO MF’s DAAF employs an innovative investment strategy based on the proprietary TRANSFORMER model. This model allows the fund to adjust its equity exposure from 0% to 100% based on market trends. By swiftly transitioning between equity and debt investments in real-time, the fund mitigates risks and curtails drawdowns, providing investors with a unique sense of security and stability.

The principal asset allocation of the fund shall be determined based on momentum in equity markets and extreme mean reversion signals which shall be calculated using SAMCO MF’s proprietary TRANSFORMER model. Fundamentally the scheme will operate based on trend following strategies i.e., when markets are in clear uptrends with lower volatility, equity allocations shall be higher and when markets are breaking down, in correction or bear market phases, net equity allocations shall be zero or at extremely low levels. Only in extreme panic or euphoric conditions, the scheme will move to mean reversion models and build equity exposure in bear markets or cut equity exposure in bull markets. Rebalancing based on the model shall happen on real time dynamic basis and will not follow a monthly/quarterly rebalancing model.

The factors for determining the Asset allocation shall be dependent on following factors: Trends in Equity Markets, Rate Spread in Bond Yields, Averages such as SMA/EMA and deviation of price from averages thereof, Net new 52-week highs and lows, Stock Price Breadth & Volumes, US Fed’s Funds Rates & Yield curve, Options Volatility & VIX, Relative Strength across Asset Classes & Securities, Market Cap to GDP Valuations & Money Supply, Equity Earnings Yields & Rolling Returns on Trailing basis & Retail trading activity.

Umeshkumar Mehta, Chief Investment Officer (CIO), SAMCO Asset Management Private Limited, said, “SAMCO Mutual Fund is proud to introduce the Dynamic Asset Allocation Fund, a result of our commitment to addressing the concerns and needs of investors in India. With DAAF, we offer a game-changing solution that combines the potential for good returns with an attempt to minimize drawdowns. Our innovative approach, backed by the TRANSFORMER model, ensures that investors can navigate market fluctuations with confidence. We believe DAAF will redefine the way investors perceive and approach their investments, offering them peace of mind and long-term wealth creation opportunities.”

Salient Features:

Commenting on the launch, Viraj Gandhi, CEO of SAMCO Asset Management Private Limited, said, “At SAMCO Mutual Fund, we are driven by a commitment to empower investors with innovative and robust financial solutions. The launch of our Dynamic Asset Allocation Fund marks yet another significant step in our journey to provide investors with stability, growth, and peace of mind. We believe this fund, helmed by experienced professionals, will redefine investment experiences and set new benchmarks in the industry.”
