Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

School to equip students with iPads

Beijing - A top-tier high school in China is considering equipping its seniors with iPads, the first in China to do so, China Daily reported Tuesday.

Starting in September, Nanjing's Jinling High School will provide the popular Apple tablets to seniors involved in a project between the school and the University of California.

Under the project, those students will take Advancement Placement classes and parts of UCLA’s classes in addition to their own academic studies.

If the pilot project goes well, the school will extend the iPad plan to all grades.

Apple sold 4.7 million iPads in China last year.
