Could your Christmas gift of jewellery be funding genocide? | Hannah Lownsbrough
Luxury brands such as Bulgari must stop buying gems from Myanmar, where the military is committing horrifying acts of violence against the RohingyaAs Christmas approaches, luxury jewellery brands will be preparing themselves for the annual windfall of cash that it brings. But shoppers this year will want to consider their role in propping up the genocide of Rohingya people, and join the tens of thousands of people calling on high-end jewellery retailers to end their relationships with the Burmese military.In early December, 75,000 people signed an online petition calling on Cartier to do just that. Cartier’s response was swift and within days announced it had “decided to stop purchasing gemstones from Myanmar, which will become fully effective as of December 8”. Now other similar companies must follow suit.Almost all of the world’s superior quality jade originates in Myanmar, and 95% of the world’s rubies Related: In the name of humanity, don’t look away from the plight of the Rohingya people | Ian Woolverton Continue reading...

Tata teases its Auto Expo 2018 line-up
Tata has released a teaser video in which it provides hints of the models that it will bring to the Auto Expo 2018. In the video, three cars are visible under wraps, though which models will be exhibited have not yet been revealed. However, as we had reported earlier, the Indian carmaker is expected to bring its new Baleno and i20 rival, codenamed X451, and its five- and seven-seat rival to the Creta and Compass, codenamed the H5. Along with these two near-production models, Tata is also expected to showcase its capabilities and mobility solutions aimed at smart cities. While many manufacturers are staying away from the Expo, Tata seems to be pulling out all stops to maximise their participation. Here’s what you can expected at Tata’s stall in the 2018 Auto Expo: Tata X451 Based on Tata Motors’ new Advanced Modular Platform (AMP), the X451 will slot in above the Tiago in the carmaker’s line-up. Tata’s new design language, called Impact Design 2.0, will feature on the model, along with uprated versions of the Tiago’s 1.2-litre petrol engine and 1.05-litre diesel motor. The Nexon’s 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine may also feature at a later date. Expect a launch date for the model sometime in 2019. Tata H5 Underpinned by the Land Rover Discovery Sport’s L550 platform, the production-spec H5 will be available as a five- and seven-seater. Powered by FCA’s 2.0-litre, four-cylinder MultiJet II diesel engine, the five-seater will have it in a 140hp state of tune, while the seven-seater will get it in a 170hp tune. Expect the pricing to undercut the Jeep Compass and even Hyundai’s Creta. Mobility solutions Tata’s display at the Auto Expo will include 26 smart mobility solutions across its passenger and commercial vehicles. The brand’s Smart Mobility pavilion will be split into interactive zones like Residential zone, Sports zone, Smart Energy zone, and Inter and Intracity zones. Each zone, with its digital engagements around the product exhibits, is expected to provide Auto Expo audiences an engaging experience across the pavilion.
