THE HAGUE http://www.cheapblackhawkshockeyjerseys.com/alex-debrincat/ , Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- Philips will split into two separate independent companies, one for lighting solutions and one combining healthcare and consumer lifestyles, the Dutch electronics giant announced on Tuesday.

Both companies will http://www.cheapblackhawkshockeyjerseys.com/brent-seabrook/ , according to Philips, remain market leaders and continue to carry the name Philips. The healthcare company had a combined turnover of around 15 billion euros (19.3 billion U.S. dollars) in 2013, while the lighting company had a turnover of 7 billion euros. Philips did not mention a time schedule for the split.

The healthcare company will consist of a merger between the health and consumer division. A Philips statement said the goal is to "capitalize on the convergence of professional health care and consumer end-markets across the health continuum http://www.cheapblackhawkshockeyjerseys.com/artemi-panarin/ , from healthy living and prevention to diagnosis, treatment, recovery and home care."

The lighting division will focus primarily on innovative lighting solutions and projects as relieving entire neighborhoods and buildings.

"I do appreciate the magnitude of the decision we are taking http://www.cheapblackhawkshockeyjerseys.com/corey-crawford/ , but the time is right to take the next strategic step for Philips, as we continue on our transformation," said Frans van Houten http://www.cheapblackhawkshockeyjerseys.com/jonathan-toews/ , CEO of Philips, in a press release.

"Both companies will be able to make the appropriate investments to boost growth and drive profitability, ultimately generating significantly more value for our customers http://www.cheapblackhawkshockeyjerseys.com/duncan-keith/ , employees and shareholders," he added.

Philips suffered from difficult market conditions and moderate growth with the company posting 2013 sales of 23.3 billion euros. The firm employs approximately 113,000 employees in more than 100 countries.

MUMBAI, Feb. 5 (Xinhua) -- An Indian textbook containing controversial excerpts about higher dowry demand for "ugly and handicapped" girls has sparked outrage.

"If a girl is ugly and handicapped, then it becomes very difficult for her to get married. To marry such girls, bridegroom and his family demand more dowry," stated the textbook for secondary and higher secondary education in the western Indian state of Maharashtra.

Pictures of the text went viral on social media, with many people criticizing the the book's authors for being careless in choosing such offensive terms to portray women, and condemning the illegal and infamous dowry system in the country.

"If education itself becomes oppressive, where are we headed?" Twitter user Breakthrough India commented.

"We will withdraw the objectionable part and also issue a notice to the textbook officials concerned," state education minister Vinod Tawde told The Times of India.

Dowry refers to the money, goods, jewelry or property that the bride's family gives to the bridegroom as a condition of the marriage. The dowry system is believed to put great financial burden on the bride's family. In some cases, the dowry system leads to crime against women, ranging from emotional and physical abuse, even injury to deaths.

The practice has been illegal in India since 1961 under the Dowry Prohibition Act, but the law has been proved ineffective in many cases.

Sociologist Vidyut Bhagwat told The Times of India that dowry was "market-related" and that marriage had also become a "market."

"Mentioning 'ugly' and 'handicapped' to describe girls is in itself a very wicked and crooked way of looking at things. Why didn't the writer instead write about the anti-dowry Act and the past movements that were led to stop the practice of dowry? I feel the book should be banned," Bhagwat said.

Despite widespread condemnations, an author of the book contacted by The Times of India argued that the text was taken out of context. "We have said that these are some of the reasons why dowry exists. We have also included advisory on how girls should and can refuse to marry a groom whose family demands dowry," said the author.

While India has been making progress for women's rights, women continued to be in a subordinate status in their family and society.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov. 24 (Xinhua) -- Record-breaking goalkeeper Rogerio Ceni will coach Sao Paulo for the next two seasons, the six-time Brazilian Serie A champions said on Thursday.

Ceni, 43, was confirmed as Sao Paulo's new boss less than 24 hours after the sacking of Ricardo Gomes.

"Rogerio Ceni has always been a protagonist," Sao Paulo said in a statement. "In the last 12 months he has shown his ambition to be a qualified coach.

"He has studied with the best in the world and he convinced us by presenting a project for the future of Sao Paulo. He is an enormously important figure at this club and he comes with a determination to again be the best, this time as a coach."

Capped 16 times for Brazil, Ceni retired at the end of last year after 1,250 matches for Sao Paulo in a career spanning 24 seasons.

A specialist free-kick and penalty taker, he is regarded by the Guinness Book of Records as the highest-scoring keeper of all time with 131 goals.

Ceni long ago made public his wish to pursue a career in coaching and is in the final stage of acquiring his qualification badges.

In the past year he has worked with the coaching staff at Sevilla, Chelsea, Leicester and Manchester City. His spell with the latter came after he wrote a personal letter to City coach Pep Guardiola in which he expressed a desire to learn from the former Barcelona and Spain midfielder.

Gomes was sacked on Wednesday after leading Sao Paulo to six wins, five draws and seven losses. The Tricolor are currently 13th in Brazil's 20-team Serie A standings with two matches remaining in the season.

Ceni will begin in his new role in January.
