  1. A women uses a hand-pump to fill drinking water PHOTO: REUTERS The world should look to nature for better ways to maintain supplies of water, keep it clean, and protect people from droughts and floods, the United Nations said on Monday. As the global population expands and the planet warms, demand for water is rising, while the quality and reliability of our water supply is declining, the 2018 edition of the UN World Water Development Report has warned. One response is to invest more in protecting ecosystems that recycle water, such as wetlands and vegetation, and spend less on concrete flood barriers or wastewater treatment plants. Audrey Azoulay, director-general of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which coordinates the report, called for ?new solutions? to tackle ?emerging challenges to water security caused by population growth and climate change?. ?If we do nothing, some five billion people will be living in areas with poor access to water by 2050,? she said in a statement. Demand for water is expected to increase by nearly one-third by 2050, said Gilbert Houngbo, chair of UN-Water, in the report?s foreword. To help manage competing demands for freshwater - whether to quench human thirst, water crops or produce electricity - the report recommended ?working with nature, rather than against it? in a bid to make water use more efficient, cost-effective and healthier for people and the environment. ?For too long, the world has turned first to human-built, or ?grey?, infrastructure to improve water management,? wrote Houngbo. ?In so doing, it has often brushed aside traditional and indigenous knowledge that embraces greener approaches.? The report outlined the benefits of ?nature-based solutions?, which use or mimic natural processes to increase water availability, improve its quality and reduce risks linked to water-related disasters and climate change. Those solutions include changing farming practices so the soil retains more moisture and nutrients, harvesting rainwater, re-charging aquifers, conserving wetlands that capture runoff and decontaminate water, restoring floodplains and turning rooftops into gardens. The report cited estimates that agricultural production could be increased by nearly 20 percent worldwide if greener water management practices were used. Richard Connor, editor-in-chief of the report, said switching to a ?conservation agriculture? model could bring high and rapid returns, but achieving it on a large scale would require political will at the national level. ?Agriculture internationally remains dominated by industrial (farming), and it can be a little more difficult to influence the private-sector interests that are involved,? he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. But some companies were adopting more sustainable practices, while consumers - mainly in Europe and North America - increasingly prefer organic, locally grown food, he added. Greener cities Inside cities, the challenge is to capture and filter more water using ?green infrastructure? - from water retention ponds to wild spaces that double up for leisure activities. And out of town, in the basins on which cities rely, water users like farmers need to cooperate with municipal authorities to ensure enough clean water for all. New York, for example, has protected its three biggest watersheds since the late 1990s, resulting in an unfiltered water supply that brings savings of more than $300 million per year on water treatment and maintenance costs, the report said. ?Grey? infrastructure - such as piped water to slums, dams to control water flow on rivers, or concrete walls to keep out big storm surges and floods - would still be needed, Connor said. Yet while growing amounts are spent on green infrastructure and other nature-based solutions, evidence suggests they account for less than 1 percent of total investment in infrastructure to manage water resources, the report said. Connor pointed to the extra advantages of using natural ways to manage water, including the potential to boost biodiversity, jobs, health and carbon storage. "If you start to look at these co-benefits that often do not exist with grey infrastructure ... it should tip the investment decisions towards more nature-based solutions," he said.

  3. Pakistan is doing the "bare minimum" to squeeze the Taliban and terror groups, a senior US administration official said Friday, despite Washington?s threat to freeze two billion dollars? worth of aid. Photo: Geo News file WASHINGTON: Pakistan is doing the "bare minimum" to squeeze the Taliban and terror groups, a senior US administration official said Friday, despite Washington?s threat to freeze two billion dollars? worth of aid. The official?s comments come during a time when Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is visiting Washington where he has held meetings with high-ups in the US government including Congressman Ted Yoho ? the chairperson of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific. Pakistan will never become a US proxy: Foreign Minister Asif Khawaja Asif made the remarks while addressing the National Assembly "The Pakistanis have wanted to appear responsive," the official said on condition of anonymity, sketching out the need for increased pressure. "They have done the bare minimum to appear responsive to our requests," the official added, citing the need to prod the Taliban toward the negotiating table and round-up militants. "We continue to make very specific requests, and when provided with very specific information they have responded, but we have not seen them pro-actively take the steps that we expect and know they are capable of." It is more than 200 days since President Donald Trump announced America?s latest strategy to win the long war in Afghanistan, focusing on pushing the Taliban to the negotiating table. The plan demanded Pakistan move against Taliban leaders who support a continuation of the war, under the threat of cutting US military assistance and Afghanistan coalition funding to Islamabad. So far, the strategy has borne only limited fruit, limiting the Taliban?s march on the battlefield. According to Washington, there is little sign that Islamabad has made a decision to end its support for the group. "We didn?t think this would be easy," the official said. "We need to sustain the pressure." "I don?t think that we can just the efficacy of the strategy right now. We should give it more time, it deserves more time," the official added, suggesting an August anniversary of Trump?s strategy speech may be a good time to reflect. US trying to 'embarrass' Pakistan with terror financing list: Miftah Ismail 'If Americans were interested in working with us they would have taken the offer I was making them', the PM's aide says Members of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an anti-money-laundering watchdog based Paris, voted last month to place Pakistan on its grey list of nations which are not doing enough to combat terror financing in June, reportedly under US pressure. That gives Pakistan three months to make enough changes to avoid the listing.
  4. Right from our childhood, we are told that English is a prerequisite for anyone and everyone who wants to succeed or basically achieve anything in life. And those who don't know the language are unfortunately ridiculed. The fact that English is one of the most spoken languages in the world just goes on to establish the dominance it has. via GIPHY But you know us Indians; we have the ability to transform everything as per our tastes and term it as a 'jugaad'. And there's no debate over the fact that the 'Hinglish' language is one of our most successful jugaads. In fact, it is so successful that it now taking over the world starting with a college in UK. © Twitter Portsmouth College is offering its students a course in the hybrid language of 'Hinglish'. The course was first introduced in 2017 as a part of a pilot project. But thanks to the crazy response that the students gave, they are going to offer a longer duration course starting from September this year. © Nacue The curriculum will be designed keeping in mind the growing importance of the language not just in India but across the world in terms of economy, business operations, literature and even films. © Red Chillies Entertainment According to The Tribune, 18 students attended the Hinglish sessions on a regular basis earlier and they will now be helping the faculty to develop the course further. It will then become a regular feature from the 2018-19 academic year as part of the Modern Business Language & Culture programme. You can catch a glimpse of the Hinglish class here: Honestly, it makes us laugh and feel proud at the same time. After years of us trying to adapt to everything that's western, seeing our native language taking over the world in this way is definitely something we didn't expect. But people's massive interest in learning about India, its culture through a language is definitely heart warming.
  5. For 7 days and nights, an estimated of 35,000 farmers marched from Nasik to Mumbai. With blistered feet, parched throats and tired souls, they entered Mumbai in the hope of asking their government a chance for a better life, something that they already deserved. The hands that provide us food are benevolent hands. The farmers marched all night so as to not cause a traffic jam and inconvenience students who had their board exam the next day. © BCCL While our hearts bled looking at their bleeding feet, the city of Mumbai stepped up to show solidarity with the hands that feed us. Residents of Mumbai have come forward to distribute food items and water to the marching farmers. © Twitter_KisanSabha When the farmers reached the Byculla junction at 4.30 a.m., Muslim residents were standing with packets of biscuits and water to distribute to the exhausted kisans. At a time when the social fabric of the country is being threatened by caste politics, the 'aam junta' has once again proved it considers humanity as the only religion. As they marched into Thane on Saturday night, residents turned up to welcome them and offered them foodgrains and footwear for their bleeding feet. “We were shocked to see the farmers walk barefoot on the highway. Some of us removed our footwear and offered it to the women, while others decided to donate shoes the following day,” said Nita Karnik, who took it upon herself to arrange 100 pairs of shoes for the farmers. © Twitter_KisanSabha The Sikh community, like always, stepped up this time too. Sikh volunteers came forward with food and water, and gurudwaras lent out a helping hand in making the march less painful for the farmers. #KisanLongMarch gets a warm welcome from Mumbai's Sikhs.

Farmer suicides due to inability to pay loans is not something we haven't heard before. Among these protesting farmers are many who have lost their sons and fathers to suicide. Walking among them is 77-year-old Vishwanath Bagare, whose 38-year-old son Somnath committed suicide in 2011 after failing to pay a loan of Rs 1.5 lakh. The plight of our farmers is not hidden and the city of Mumbai just proved that it respects the hand that feed us. Ajit Navale, state secretary of All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) said, “We are humbled by the love showered on us by Thane residents...We are happy that those living in the city have understood the plight of poor farmers living in villages.”
  6. Protestors rally outside the Capitol urging Florida lawmakers to reform gun laws, in the wake of a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Tallahassee, Florida, US on Feb 21, 2018. Photo: REUTERS/file WASHINGTON: Donald Trump´s administration will step up aid to states that want to arm school employees, officials said Sunday under a plan to increase campus safety after the killing of 17 people in Florida. The controversial idea to put weapons in schools, which has drawn little support from educators, is part of a "pragmatic plan to dramatically increase school safety and to take steps to do so right away," Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a conference call with reporters. Among other steps, DeVos said she will chair a federal commission on school safety. President Trump is also urging Congress to pass legislation that will strengthen background checks and implement violence prevention programmes. The Trump administration will provide technical assistance to states preparing temporary "risk protection orders" that allow for guns to be removed from certain individuals, and there will be a focus on mental health care, said Andrew Bremberg, a presidential assistant who heads the Domestic Policy Council. The measures come during a reignited national gun control debate revived by survivors of last month´s massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 14 students and three staff were gunned down by a man with a semi-automatic rifle. "The administration will be working with states to provide rigorous firearms training to specifically qualified volunteer school personnel," Bremberg said. Lily Eskelsen Garcia, president of the National Education Association (NEA), the largest professional union in the United States, has said that parents and educators "overwhelmingly reject the idea of arming school staff."

  9. If you've ever been cheated on by your companion, then you know the extensive hurt and trauma the experience leaves you with. It's very difficult to fathom the person's very existence in your life and it's even more difficult to forgive them and move on from the incident. But cheating in most cases is circumstantial. Some people cheat because they know no other way or are never happy with just one partner. Others cheat because they're in a situation they can't get out of. While nothing can justify the act of infidelity, there are times you wish you could truly reverse things around. © Thinkstock Some people often wish to genuinely forgive their cheating partners and carry on a life with them but they don't know how to completely let go. The incident crops up like a bad Monday and stays till the day is over. If you truly want to forgive your partner and take them back into your life, it's possible. But you have to show extreme resilience, patience and faith in order to completely let go and begin a new chapter with them. These five steps can definitely help you out! Step One: Ask Yourself Imperative Questions The most important way to rationalise the situation is to ask pertinent questions to yourself. The first and foremost question is, whether or not they're worth forgiving? If you think the answer to that is a yes, then start asking other important questions. Some questions you can ask are: Have they cheated in the past?: If they have cheated in the past then you know it's a recurring pattern in their behavior and they need a brutal reminder to know they can't get away scot-free each time. © Thinkstock Why did they cheat?: Sometimes honest mistakes do happen. You know your partner best. If you think they genuinely made a mistake then try looking at the situation from their side. Put yourself in their shoes and figure things out. Can you trust them again?: If you instinctively believe they will not slip or falter in the future then carry on analysing the situation deeper. The biggest thing one loses out on is trust and it's tough to regain it. Was your relationship going through a bad stretch?: When your partner cheated on you, was your relationship going through a downer? Sometimes when relationships go through a bad patch, you look for distractions in order to validate your own existence. If that's the case, maybe work on the relationship simultaneously. © Thinkstock Are they sorry and regretful?: They should be absolutely apologetic and regretful in this situation. If they aren't, well, you know how they feel about it then. Maybe an apology doesn't fix anything but it's an assurance to know the person who hurt you, is hurting herself. Step Two: Give Each Other Space All the hurt that you've experienced will trickle down to you letting go of your gradual process and clinging on to them again. It's very important to give yourself space and time to completely recover from the incident. It's also important to not have them around constantly because of the malice you still hold towards what they did. If you're living in with your partner, ask her to move out for a few days or you move out in order to give yourself space and time you truly deserve. Space and time also means cutting off from each other temporarily and cease communication in order to get a healthy break and think things over. © Thinkstock Step Three: Have The Final Conversation After giving each other significant time away, meet up for one final conversation. of course you get to decide when you want to meet them and talk, since you have to figure this out. It's okay to ask your partner all sorts of questions and details about everything you need to know to salvage the relationship. If your partner's willingness to answer these questions is dim, then it's really not worth the effort. If you have no questions but some conditions to put down in order to prevent this from happening again, feel free to do that too. if your partner doesn't meet you halfway, then you know what to do © Thinkstock Step Four: Start From Scratch Now that you've achieved closure on what you went through, it's time to start fresh. There is no point going back and forth on what's happened. One thing you have to abide by is letting go of the past without bringing it up in the future again. If you're willing to start with a clean slate, then it's very healthy. © Thinkstock Step Five: Trust And Change There are two things you need to build when you give someone another chance. The first thing is trust. If you can learn to trust the person again, you've won half the battle. If you think you cannot trust them again in the future, then you have to completely let go. The other thing is change. Now I am not saying it was your fault your partner cheated on you but let's face it, your partner cheated because something was lacking in the relationship. Try and change things around. No, not for them, but for yourself. You cannot be the same person you were with them, you have to be a little more fastidious about the relationship hereon. If you think you can imbibe these two important things in your relationship, then you're good to go! It's not necessary to forgive and get back with someone who has hurt you but if you morally and truly believe the person is worth another chance then try these steps out. In my personal experience, someone who has cheated on you isn't worth a second chance, but then again, that's just my experience and everything is subjective! Good luck.

  12. According to the social media giant, there are thousands of posts each month in Pakistan seeking blood donors on Facebook, and over 100,000 people in blood donation groups-Photo: AFP Facebook has launched a blood donations feature in Pakistan to make it easier for people to sign up to be blood donors, and to help connect donors with people and organisations in need, a press release said. ?People using Facebook in Pakistan will be able to sign up to be blood donors either on their profiles or by visiting facebook.com/donateblood. All information will remain private and set to Only Me by default, but people can choose to share their donor status more widely. This feature will be available on Android, iOS and desktop,? the press release said. According to the social media giant, there are thousands of posts each month in Pakistan seeking blood donors on Facebook, and over 100,000 people in blood donation groups. ?Pakistan, like many countries, has a shortage of safe blood. In some cases, this shortage means patients and their families are responsible for finding donors to replace the blood they receive from blood banks or hospitals,? the press release stated. The feature will help bring together donors, non-profit organisations, and health industry to be ?useful to people?. Facebook also launched a similar feature in India and Bangladesh.
  13. WASHINGTON: Facebook on Tuesday announced a $3 million pilot project aimed at helping US newspapers boost paid digital subscriptions. The move was the latest by the huge social network to respond to concerns that it and other online platforms have hurt news organisations by dominating internet advertising. The "local news subscriptions accelerator," part of the Facebook Journalism Project, will work with a small group of metro news organisations "to unlock strategies that help publishers build digital customer acquisitions on and off our platform," said a statement from Campbell Brown, Facebook's head of news partnerships. Facebook recently took steps to enable publishers to encourage paid subscriptions directly from the social network, moving away from requirements that news organisations offer free content in links from Facebook. The new initiative builds on that effort by offering guidance to publishers to help their digital initiatives. "We know Facebook is one part of the strategy to engage readers and ultimately drive paid subscriptions," Brown said. Facebook will offer "coaching from digital subscription experts" to help build reader engagement, she added. The effort by Facebook comes amid ongoing woes of legacy news organisations which have had trouble replacing revenues lost from print advertising in the digital space, with many outlets implementing new or revised "paywalls." Facebook said it is working in the project with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Dallas Morning News, Denver Post, Miami Herald, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Omaha World-Herald, Philadelphia Inquirer, Seattle Times, San Francisco Chronicle, The Tennessean and Newsday. Brown said Facebook would coordinate with the Lenfest Institute for Journalism to share findings through the Local Media Consortium, Local Media Association, and the News Media Alliance.
  14. If by the end of the day you go to bed feeling that you haven't really accomplished anything then you need to read this. There could be some reason or the other that is ruining your day and preventing you from starting out on a positive note. Most successful people follow a series of the morning rituals to start their day and you could learn a thing or two from them. Here is a list of productive morning activities that you can choose from to kick-start your day. 1. Read a book first thing in the morning © Thinkstock Reading something new keeps your mind fresh, gives you a topic for healthy discussion over the table and if by chance, you are more of an introvert; it also acts as a door where you can learn from others experiences. Reading fiction has its own advantages as it improves your brain's connectivity and how it functions. So, if you have just decided to start, begin by reading at least one book a month. 2. Make a to-do list © Thinkstock What most successful people do in the morning is they write down the top three things they want to achieve each day. This way, they do not have to go through the day mindlessly working on unnecessary things. You can do the same and define your day at the very beginning. 3. Meditate © Thinkstock We all know about the benefits of meditation but most of us still do not practice it. But, as you know, it is never too late to start something good. There are many apps available for your Android and iPhone that you can install and begin practicing with. Here is one for your reference. 4. Practice yoga © Thinkstock Practicing yoga daily doesn't just release stress, it helps you relax and unwind. It makes you look good physically, gives you more than enough of a charge to kick-start your day and also strengthens you mentally. The benefits of yoga are enormous so you just need to give it a try. 5. Work out © Thinkstock If you can begin working out daily, first thing in the morning, there cannot be better a start to the day than that. Working out improves blood circulation and keeps your body balanced, simultaneously helping you get in shape as well. 6. Go for a walk in the park © Thinkstock According to Steve Jobs, creativity is simply connecting the dots. But, how do you do that? By actually letting your mind wander. And when you are walking, you are already engaged in a physical activity that you really don't need to focus on. That activity triggers your brain to jump into a diffused mode and allows you to think randomly. This is where people often come up with an idea. Don't you want fresh ideas to kick-start an awesome day? 7. Have a nice breakfast © Thinkstock We often skip our first and most important meal of the day, breakfast. If you consume a healthy breakfast on time then you will feel more energetic during the day and it's a healthy and strong start to the morning as well. 8. Take a long shower © Thinkstock Warm baths relieve stress on your muscles, helping you feel better and more rejuvenated at the same time. The winters are gone now so it's time you get back to your summer schedule, asap.
  15. US President Donald Trump bows his head during a prayer as he sits between Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivors and students Jonathan Blank, his mother Melissa Blank, Julia Cordover, and Carson Abt (R), as the president hosts a listening session with high school students and teachers to discuss school safety at the White House in Washington, US, February 21, 2018. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that arming teachers could help prevent massacres like last week?s mass shooting at a Florida high school, voicing support for an idea backed by the National Rifle Association gun rights group. Trump made the comment during an emotional hour-long White House meeting with students who survived the Florida shooting and a parent whose child did not. Hundreds of students joined scattered protests across the country on Wednesday, including in Washington, Chicago and Pittsburgh. The Republican president, who has championed gun rights and was endorsed by the NRA during the 2016 campaign, said he would move quickly to tighten background checks for gun buyers and would consider raising the age for buying certain types of guns. He spoke at length about how armed teachers and security guards could frighten off potential school shooters and prevent student deaths. ?If you had a teacher ... who was adept at firearms, it could very well end the attack very quickly,? said Trump. The attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and educators were slain on Feb. 14 by a gunman with an AR-15 semi-automatic assault rifle in the second-deadliest shooting at a US public school, has revived the long-running US debate over gun rights. The US Constitution protects the right of Americans to bear arms, a right fiercely defended by Republicans. But Trump has been under pressure to act. Some of the participants at the meeting indicated support for Trump?s idea of arming teachers. Others were opposed. 'Nobody wants to see a shootout' Mark Barden, whose son was killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut, said his wife, Jackie, a teacher, ?will tell you that school teachers have more than enough responsibilities right now than to have to have the awesome responsibility of lethal force to take a life. ?Nobody wants to see a shootout in a school,? Barden said. After the Sandy Hook shooting, a task force backed by the NRA recommended more armed guards and teachers in schools. Trump listened intently to ideas from about 40 people, including those from six students who survived the Florida shooting. ?I don?t understand why I can still go in a store and buy a weapon of war, an AR,? said Sam Zeif, 18, sobbing after he described texting his family members during the attack. ?Let?s never let this happen again, please, please,? Zeif said. Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow Pollack, 18, was killed, shouted: ?It should have been one school shooting and we should have fixed it. And I?m pissed - because my daughter - I?m not going to see again.? Trump sat in the middle of a semi-circle in the White House State Dining Room. Photographers captured images of his handwritten note card with questions like ?What would you most want me to know about your experience?? and ?I hear you.? Protests Before Trump?s meeting, students across the United States walked out of classes in sympathy protests, including hundreds of teens from the Washington suburbs who gathered at the White House. ?I came out here because I don?t feel safe in my school,? said Allyson Zadravec, 15, of Northwood High School in Silver Spring, Maryland. ?I want to make sure that everyone who can do something about it hears that I don?t feel safe in my school.? In the Florida state capital, Tallahassee, students demanded that lawmakers restrict sales of assault rifles. Some wore T-shirts and carried signs reading: ?We call B.S.,? one of the slogans of the movement started by the survivors. Investigators said the assault was carried out by 19-year-old former Stoneman student Nikolas Cruz, who purchased an AR-15 nearly a year ago. Police charged Cruz, who had been kicked out of the school because of disciplinary problems, with 17 counts of premeditated murder. ?Nikolas Cruz was able to purchase an assault rifle before he was able to buy a beer,? said Laurenzo Prado, a Stoneman student, referring to a Florida law that allows people as young as 18 to buy assault weapons. ?The laws of the country have failed.? Lawmakers in Tallahassee said they would consider raising the age limit to 21, the same standard for handguns and alcohol, although the state Senate on Wednesday opted not to take up a gun control measure. Trump also said he was open to looking at age limits, among other measures, and lamented the closure of many mental institutions to help assess violent people. ?There?s no ... middle ground of having that institution where you had trained people that could handle it and do something about it and find out how sick he really is,? Trump said. Trump on Tuesday directed the Justice Department to work on a regulation that would effectively ban ?bump stocks,? an accessory that enables a rifle to shoot hundreds of rounds a minute. Last October, a retired real estate investor and high-stakes gambler used multiple assault rifles equipped with bump stocks to kill 58 people at a Las Vegas outdoor concert, the deadliest attack by a single gunman in US history. Bump stocks have not played a prominent role in other recent US mass shootings. The NRA opposes an outright ban on bump stocks but has said it would be open to restrictions on the devices. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer urged Trump to back legislation, instead of a regulation, on bump stocks.

  17. NEW DELHI: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani agreed on Saturday to step up efforts to bring stability to war-ravaged Afghanistan. Modi reiterated India's commitment to help Afghanistan become "a peaceful, secure, permanent, prosperous and pluralistic country" after holding talks with Rouhani in New Delhi on the last day of his three-day visit. "Looking at our common interests, we are committed to stopping the expansion of such forces that promote international organised crime in terrorism, extremism, illegal drug trafficking, cybercrime and various forms," Modi said "We want to see our region and the world free from terrorism." There was no mention of financial assistance or providing weapons to help Afghanistan fight militants by either leader. India has been a key supporter of Kabul's government and has poured more than $2 billion into the country since the Taliban were toppled in 2001. In 2016, India offered $1 billion in economic aid to strengthen various sectors in the war-torn nation including education, health and agriculture. Modi said both countries wanted to increase economic cooperation, regional connectivity and improve energy security to reach landlocked Afghanistan and central Asia via the southern Iranian port of Chabahar. The port, which was inaugurated in December, has been touted as a way for India to establish trade routes. India has been a key purchaser of Iranian oil and gas, and maintained trade ties even as international sanctions were imposed on Tehran over its nuclear programme between 2012 and 2016. However, local Indian media have reported frustrations over delays in awarding a contract to develop a major gas field known as Farzad B in the Gulf. India's foreign ministry said Saturday that "discussions continue" on Farzad B. The two leaders also signed agreements for avoidance of double taxation and the implementation of an extradition treaty from 2008. As part of a lease contract, India will help Iran run a multi-purpose container terminal at Chabahar for 18 months. India, Iran and Afghanistan signed a three-way transit agreement in 2016 to develop Chabahar port aiming to boost economic growth in the region.
  18. Everyone wants to be rich, successful, and have a perfect body too if they can help it, but how many of us actually achieve so? Maybe only one percent of us do and that too not because they are lucky or something, but they have a strong will, self-discipline, and an attitude to make a sacrifice to achieve something. Here are a few tips and tricks that can help you achieve an unwavering discipline in life. 1. Take A Head Start On A Fixed Date © Psephizo Studies have found that setting a date or event (for eg, Monday or 1st of a month) to mark the start of a new regimen can make it more likely for you to follow through on your goals. 2. Note Down Your Reason For Self-Discipline When you do so, you remind yourself the importance of goals and how you will be able to achieve them. When you write them down on paper, you strengthen your belief in yourself and also clear your mind from any doubt you might have. 3. Visualize The Benefits Of Your Efforts © Instagram/sherlock_holmes_official Visualizing yourself as your future-self is the perfect bait for you to keep going with the good work. When you visualize yourself reaping the benefits of your efforts, you are more likely to work harder towards your aim. 4. Plan An Alternative For When The Temptation Will Arrive. If you are habitual of killing time with smoking and are tempted to do so time and again, just remind yourself of taking a walk with your friend or maybe even alone. That way you will be able to better arrange your thoughts and have a chance to control your temptation of smoking a cigarette. 5. Replace Your Can't With Don't. Next time someone offers you something you know is bad for you, then don't say you can't, but replace it with that you don't. When you say you can't, you feel like a victim who has been devoid of a small privilege, but when you say you don't, you seem determined and firm with your decision. 6. Hide Your Temptation In A Place Hard For You To Find © Pexels If you don't want your phone to distract you when you are about to go to sleep, then why not put it somewhere way away from your reach? Simple isn't it? 7. Sleep For Straight 8 Hours. If you do not get enough sleep for the day then you might feel lethargic throughout the day, and that may hamper your effort of maintaining your discipline. 8. Ask Your Close Friend To Keep A Check On Your Bad Habits. When someone close to you reminds you to stay on track, you are more likely to listen to them. In that case, who is better than your roommate or a friend with whom you spend most of your time with. 9. Look At All The Options Available. If you can trick your mind with other options then you will have better chances of not falling into the trap of temptation, and won't make an impulsive decision. Start preparing your options of the list for something you want to resist. 10. Avoid Alcohol. © Thinkstock/Getty Images It is no rocket science and we all know how alcohol slows down our nervous system. When we consume alcohol we tend to take action first and think later. Clearly, that's not a good way to break your rhythm of staying true to your efforts. 11. Increase Your Glucose Level. Studies suggest that consuming glucose keeps your willpower strong. So the next time when you feel that you won't be able to keep your promise to yourself, try having a glass of hot water, lemon and a tablespoon of honey. 12. Keep Your Company With Self-Disciplined People. © AZ Quotes As Jim Rohn has said, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” It simply implies the company you choose to spend your spend time with, plays a major role in deciding your good or bad habits.
  19. Seeing someone grieving the death of a loved one is heartbreaking. Even when you know you mean well and want to help, finding anything to say and especially, the right thing to say is a hell of a difficult task. Words often fail us at such times and we are left stammering for the right thing to say. Some people are so afraid to say or do something that could hurt the griever that they choose to do and say nothing at all. And while that certainly is an option and a choice, it's often not a good one. While there's no rule book on what to do and what not to do, the following golden rules could act as a guide to help you console your friend through the death of their loved one: 1. Reach out as often as possible Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Don't think you're disturbing them if they don't take an initiative to talk to you or reply to your messages on time. They may be in a fog because loss and grief are disablers and destabilising. Be more proactive and reach out, repeatedly. 2. Don't say empty things Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Don't tell them you're there for them or thinking about them when you aren't even able to take some time out for them from your busy schedule. Make sure you live up to what you have said to them because empty promises are an additional setback for those in grief. 3. Be prepared to hear things that will make you uncomfortable Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Don't ask them how they are because their answers will more often than not make you feel uncomfortable. A person who has lost a loved one is not well and might not be for a really long time. And unless you're ready to hear them talk about it, don't ask them how they are. 4. Don't be judgmental Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images If you do ask them how they are, please be willing to hear them talk about their pain. It's not easy for you to hear it, but it's necessary for them to express it. It is, again, socially weird, so just try to be totally non-judgmental. They could even show anger towards the deceased person, but that's just how some people process grief. 5. Talk about the person they have lost Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images It may seem counterproductive to some to talk about the deceased person to a friend who is grieving, especially, when you're trying to make them feel better. But it's really helpful to share some happy anecdotes of the deceased person with your friend. 6. Don't tell them what to do Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Don't pressurize your friend to be strong for others. If they bottle up their feelings and tweak their actions to suit others, things will get accumulated and they may face a meltdown in the future. Let them soak the reality in and know that the only way out of this is through accepting life. 7. Pay extra attention to them on special days Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Even when you think your friend has moved on in their lives after the loss of their loved up, know that some special days might act as triggers. Days, in particular, that had some meaning and connection to the person they have lost- birthdays, anniversaries, etc. need your special attention. While it's true that grief is not a one-size-fits-all situation, this list might be a good way to start. Everyone's grief is extremely individualistic and complicated, but all you really need to do is be there for them. Death is a grave thing to learn lessons from. The person lost could have been the sole source of income in the family. And losing them can not only lead to emotional issues but financial as well. And that's why you need to understand the importance of securing your family from unseen situations. Take precautions. Opt for a regular income plan for your family, if you're the bread earner. A monthly premium of a mere Rs. 380 can get your family a regular income of Rs. 50,000 per month to cope with the monthly expenses if you're not around. Although, there will be no payout made if you survive the policy term. It can be purchased online directly from the insurer's website in just 10 minutes. One added bonus is that these plans also give us a tax benefit u/s 80C. It's smart to prepare for your death for your family, no matter how young you are. Calculate your monthly premium here.
  20. On days when Bollywood's Badshah, Shah Rukh Khan is not busy giving romance lessons to the world or asking the gorgeous Cate Blanchett for a selfie at Davos, he serves visual treat on a platter called Instagram for all his fans to gorge on. But, if it's a Sunday and he has nothing to do just like most of us, then his Instagram account can turn into an enigma code or the cryptic codes from 'The Matrix', making it difficult for us to decipher what he truly means. Instagram Well, maybe we exaggerated a bit, but after watching this video, we are sure you are going to feel the same way as we do - confused to an extent where we don't know how to react, so we like the post, tag our friends and leave it to their imagination to decode what exactly it was. In the video, SRK is seen wearing a tuxedo, his cool dark glasses and hair slicked back as he gears up to give a special surprise to his fans. Before we could understand what was happening, he dunked his face right inside the water, and played a couple of his famous dialogues. This didn't go as planned...but on a lazy Sunday afternoon, with my limited floatation expertise..this is the best I could do! Judge nahi karna, feel karna...Thx. A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on Feb 11, 2018 at 2:42am PST Well, like he said in the caption of the post, “Judge nahi karna, feel karna.” So we'll leave it at that and ask you guys to take charge and help us figuring out in what he was doing.
  21. Today, life moves so fast that it is impossible to eliminate stress from your life. This continuous stress in millennials is ultimately leading to an increasing number of cases of heart disease, obesity, depression, gastrointestinal problems, asthma, and more. A recent paper out of Harvard and Stanford found health issues from job stress alone causes more deaths than diabetes, Alzheimer's, or influenza. © Az Quotes Well, there are many habits successful people suggest to help deal with stress like reading a book, meditating and thinking positive but all these require a lot of effort. It wouldn't be anything new if we told you that music helps you relax but what if we gave you the list of songs which Neuroscience suggests can help reduce anxiety by up to 65 percent. © Az Quotes Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson of Mindlab International conducted this research, where participants were asked to solve difficult puzzles as quickly as possible while connected to sensors. The puzzles induced a certain level of stress, and participants listened to different songs while researchers measured their brain activity as well as physiological states which included heart rate, blood pressure, and rate of breathing. The song 'Weightless' topped the list. Here is the list of songs that you can listen to when you feel that you are going through a bit of stress. 1. "Weightless," by Marconi Union 2. "Electra," by Airstream 3. "Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix)," by DJ Shah 4. "Watermark," by Enya 5. "Strawberry Swing," by Coldplay 6. "Please Don't Go," by Barcelona 7. "Pure Shores," by All Saints 8. "Someone Like You," by Adele 9. "Canzonetta Sull'aria," by Mozart 10. "We Can Fly," by Rue du Soleil You can also listen to them for a good night's sleep, just before going to bed.
  22. It's that time of the year again! The nation waited with bated breath as the Union Budget unfolded today. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley began by saying that the budget is going to focus more on the agricultural and rural economy and will bring in major changes. While we won't get into the details, because honestly, it'll take forever to discuss the new reforms and policies. But for what it's worth, PM Modi's says that the new Budget is "farmer friendly, common citizen friendly, business environment-friendly and development friendly." Basically, he means it's the best budget we could have got, given our country's current condition. Live Coverage from the Lok Sabha - Union Budget 2018-19 https://t.co/ty740gs010 — Arun Jaitley (@arunjaitley) February 1, 2018 However, like almost every year, things didn't look so good for the middle-class citizens in this budget and they obviously took to social media to deal with it. But instead of long-ass rants, Twitter is dealing with the sadness in the modern way: with Taimur and middle-class memes. 1.

  23. Indian indigenous medicine is not one of the world's oldest but also one of the most effective forms of medicine out there. Ashwagandha is an India herb that's been used in ayurvedic medicine for centuries. The name stands for the 'smell of horse', which comes from its distinct odor. Although most people consider it a virility and sexual strength enhancing supplement, the benefits of Ashwagandha surely exceed that. In fact if you are into serious strength training, this should be of special attention to you. Here are 5 reasons to start supplementing with Ashwagandha. 1) Boosts Recovery By Moderating Stress Hormone Levels Ashwagandha is a powerful adaptogen, which means that it reduces the physical and chemical effects of stress. Weight training is technically a stress on our body and coping up with it is of prime importance if you want to get stronger overtime. All the stressors elevate Cortisol (stress hormone) levels in our body. Cortisol is also a catabolic hormone and an excess of it reduces testosterone and protein synthesis, this isn't good for your anabolic goals i.e. muscle building. Ashwagandha is proven to significantly reduce negative effects of stress and decline cortisol levels up to 14.5-27.9%. Regular consumption of ashwagandha will boost recovery and can lead to greater muscle gains. © YouTube 2) Improved Sleep Quality Always value the quality of your sleep. It is during sleep that your body adapts to hard training, builds new muscle tissues and gets stronger. It is reported that people suffering from insomnia have benefitted from ashwagandha supplementation. Personally, I have observed a notable positive difference in my sleep quality too. It can be due to a decline in stress levels resulting in a calmer mind. 3) Enhanced Power Output And Aerobic Capacity Untrained men who were put on a periodic strength program and supplemented with ashwagandha, observed an increment of 20kg on the bench press and 5kg on leg extensions compared to men who didn't supplement it. Another study noted improved power output and velocity of sprints, as well as an improvement of VO2 max (max oxygen intake capacity) without affecting blood pressure. Thus, it can be stated that ashwagandha supplementation directly increases strength and speed. © YouTube 4) Effect on Testosterone Health Men suffering from a drop in testosterone levels can bring their bodily functions back to normal after regularly using ashwagandha. This makes it a great addition to a PCT (post cycle therapy) supplement stack. Enhanced sperm count and sperm quality are noticed in infertile men. Men with healthy testosterone levels may only get a slight increase in total testosterone. This might not get you jacked up like a steroid cycle but increased energy levels and *** drive can be expected. 5) Other health benefits of Ashwagandha Increased HDL Cholesterol A fairly notable increment of 17.6% in HDL-Cholesterol has been noted with 60 days of Ashwagandha supplementation. Reduced LDL A slight reduction in LDL-Cholesterol is also observed. Reduced total cholesterol A significant reduction of 10% in total cholesterol is also noted. Reduced blood pressure A slight decrement in blood pressure (1.6% systolic and 5.6% diastolic) has been noted to occur alongside a reduction in pulse rate. Reduction in fatigue levels Individuals supplementing with ashwagandha have reported a decline in perception of fatigue Dosages You will find ashwagandha in powdered and tablet forms on the market. The powdered form makes it easier to meet the required clinical dosages and is also more cost-effective. Take 2gms twice a day after meals, preferably breakfast and dinner. Supplement regularly for at least two weeks before noting down any significant difference in your health.

  25. Who doesn't want to have more money in their bank accounts? Obviously, most of us do. But how do we do it? That is the ultimate question. So, now, if you happen to ask any businessman what is the most valuable thing they can do with their time, they generally have the same answer for you: work on the billable hours! Suppose you are a Chartered Accountant who bills Rs 3000 per hour for your consultancy service or more for a project varying as per the time taken. Pretty simple right? © Bold Beautiful Blissful U Now, let's suppose you are a senior business person who has just negotiated a contract worth millions. Here, the worth of the skill is higher so obviously the money you earn per hour would be pretty high. What we discussed above could be the two probable scenarios. Now, when people are asked what the second most valuable thing they can do with their time is, how would they react? Most of the time, businessmen tend to answer with a task that also generates money, but not at the same rate as their primary skill does. Here, in the case of the chartered accountant, he may work as a Budget Analyst for Rs 500 per hour. © YouTube/deepesh talreja This is the invisible mistake most people tend to make. “The second most valuable thing anyone can do with their time is to invest in marketing efforts that will generate more future billable hours related to their most valuable skill,” says Dr. Gunther Klaus, the famed management speaker. Here as a CA, you should not do Budget Analyses; instead he or she should be engaged in marketing efforts like building a social media presence in their area of expertise, going to networking events, or reaching out to current clients for referrals--anything that will help generate more high-end billable hours in the future. Dr, Gunther says if one constantly applied this idea - of only doing your most valuable work and then spending time creating more of your most valuable work - one can for sure increase their chances of doubling their income in a few years. This activity may cost you some money but the return in terms of increased billable hours in the future would be a profitable deal. © Roost Real Estate Co This strategy has quite a resemblance to what Dan Sullivan of the Strategic Coach has to say on how you need to spend most of your time doing the things you are best at and enjoy doing that you can also make money doing. He stresses the critical importance of creating "focus days," where time is spent primarily on those things that you do best and make money doing. In his blog, Dan talks about "buffer days (preparation days)," which is the time you spend after you have completed your focus days (centered on money-making activities). His suggestion is that you should be spending your buffer days marketing yourself in a way that generates more of the high-value hours you'll spend your focus days working on. Then he also mentions free days that you spend entirely away and disconnected from the business and are for rejuvenation. © AZ Quotes That's it. Now, it is up to you to think about this piece of advice and implement this strategy or not.
