How do hotel star ratings work

In case you missed it, there’s a seven-star resort coming to an Austrian treetop near you. No word on if it’s being inspected by the Lil’ Rascals to make sure it has adequate clubhouse space and “No Girls Allowed” signage since to literally everyone in the world’s knowledge no official rating system exists for tree houses. But it makes one wonder: If a treehouse can claim it has seven stars, can any old hotel do it too? The Burj-al-Arab in Dubai famously claimed it was the world’s first and o...

A steady drip-feed has normalised hatred against Muslims in BJP-ruled Karnataka. Which is why Kannadigas are so apathetic to the Police claim that a poor, unlettered domestic help tutored a Class VI girl to wage war against the mighty Indian state.

As a pictorial representation of the perverse inhumanity that the “land of Buddha and Gandhi” has embraced as its key performance indicator since 2014, it is difficult to beat the two images that emerged out of Karnataka’s northern-most city, Bidar, in the week following the 70th year of the founding of the Republic. In the first picture (above), two boys, barely four feet tall, sit alternately crouching and cowering in fear before two XL policemen, one carrying a questionnaire, the other a cli...

A Hindu bomber detonates the Mangalore ‘bomb’ in the face of Kannada news media. And a newspaper suggests mental tests and medical treatment for the ‘real terrorists’: embedded editors, owners and TV anchors.

Karnataka is the outlier in peninsular India—the only state in the South that the BJP has managed to come to power, by hook and by crook. Twice. There is a plethora of political reasons for this, including caste realignment, but there can be little doubt that the Kannada media has played a hands-on role in paving the way for the Hindu nationalist party to gain a foothold, and then obtain a stranglehold, in a progressive state known for pioneering social reforms. Politically invested media owners...

Shadows’ Dylan Flinn and Kombo’s Kevin Gould on the business of ‘virtual influencers’

In films, TV shows and books — and even in video games where characters are designed to respond to user behavior — we don’t perceive characters as beings with whom we can establish two-way relationships. But that’s poised to change, at least in some use cases. Interactive characters — fictional, virtual personas capable of personalized interactions — are defining new territory in entertainment. In my guide to the concept of “virtual beings,” I outlined two categories of these characters: virtua...

  The most touching aspect of a Lingayat mutt head publicly “threatening” Karnataka chief minister B.S. Yediyurappa to include Lingayat MLAs in his cabinet, failing which he would incur the wrath of the entire Lingayat community, is the faux outrage—first from Yediyurappa himself on stage, and then from the outside world. On social media there has been a welter of criticism at the audacity of the swami to upbraid an elected politician—and grudging appreciation of Yediyurappa’s angry comeback...
