  1. Photo: File French fashion brand Lacoste on Wednesday swapped the crocodile logo on its shirts for the first time in its history for 10 of the most endangered species on the planet. The green Lacoste crocodile -- one of the world's best-known logos -- was replaced by the Sumatran tiger, the Javan rhino and the Cao Vit gibbon on the chest of its classic white polo shirts in a limited edition charity tie-in with the Save Our Species conservation group. All but a handful were sold out within hours of going on sale for $183 immediately after the brand's Paris fashion week show. The number of polo shirts put on sale was directly linked to remaining numbers of each threatened species surviving in the wild -- with only 30 for vaquita porpoises and 231 for Californian condors. Designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista also included camouflaged images of each of the endangered animals in the last 10 looks in his autumn-winter collection. "I think it is a great thing to do, and feels very gratifying if we can do something for these animals," he told AFP. "Lacoste is one of the 10 more recognisable logos in the world with Coca-Cola and Apple." The Portuguese designer said he had to be careful about using the crocodile logo -- which dates from 1933 -- "with respect. I don't like to plaster it everywhere. Either you be very classic with it or very original, and in this case it's quite original I think." Lacoste's crocodile logo still features on the back of the 1,775 shirts. Oliveira Baptista said he took his inspiration for the main collection from the 50,000 trees the Lacoste family planted around their golf course at Saint-Jean-de-Luz in southwest France during World War II. It was also a way of sparing local men from being sent to German forced labor camps, as forestry workers were exempt from conscription, he said. The designer had Princess Diana and the English upper classes at play in mind when he began creating the collection, with some models wearing wellingtons with hunting ponchos and boonie sun hats on top of hoodies. "I got inspired particularly by looking back at pictures of Lady Di: how she wore clothes that were high and low at the same time," he added. "I was looking for something timeless, something that would last more than 6 months."
  2. Italian parties advertise their wares on hoardings ahead of Sunday's election ? but thousands of jobless youngsters are voting with their feet and leaving the country altogether. Photo: AFP ROME: In her bedroom in Naples, Imma Arco folds the last items of clothing into her suitcase and zips it shut. Like so many other young Italians, the 28-year-old is leaving the country, unable to find stable employment. ?There is a lot of corruption in Italy, which makes the situation very difficult,? Arco said. ?I hope that in England, I?ll feel more rewarded.? Many young Italians are voting with their feet and seeking better career prospects abroad, despite a flurry of promises to reduce youth unemployment ahead of Sunday?s election. ?Whatever the election outcome, I don?t believe anything will change,? said Arco, a graduate in pharmacy with a Master?s in management. Italy is struggling to recover from the 2008 economic crisis, with overall output still nearly six percent lower than before the crisis began. Young people, especially, are paying the price. The statistics are grim: unemployment for 25-34 year olds stands at 17 percent. According to the latest figures from the Fondazione Migrantes research centre, in 2016 almost 50,000 Italians aged between 18 and 34 left in search of greener pastures. Young Italians often feel shut out of the political process in a country where there is little turnover in ageing political elites and the minimum age for Senate candidates is 25. Some are drawn outside of the traditional main parties to the anti-establishment rhetoric of the Five Star Movement or the anti-immigration league ? but the prevailing mood is one of despondency. Elusive permanent contract After completing a five-year degree, Arco managed to find work in Naples, but low pay, and no prospect of a permanent contract, quickly made her realise she would have to go elsewhere. For the next five years the search for career progression took her to central Italy. ?In Italy you can work for a maximum of 30 months, then a company either has to give you a permanent contract or let you go,? Arco said. ?And obviously, they always let you go because it doesn?t suit them to invest in you when so many others are queuing up to take your job.? In January, daily newspaper La Repubblica reported that 5,000 applicants had applied for one nursing job in the northern city of Parma. ?The main obstacles facing young Italians are the lack of available jobs, a mismatch between what students are studying and what the job market requires, and companies? attitudes towards new employees,? said Ivano Dionigi, head of AlmaLaurea, an association helping new graduates find work. The infamous concept of ?raccomandazioni? ? using your connections to get you a job ? is also still deeply engrained in the country?s labour market. Eighty-five percent of businesses in Italy are family run, according to research by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. ?Often in Italian companies, a father hands a managerial role down to his son. The son often does not have a degree, he is then reluctant to hire a graduate, and that?s where the damage is done,? said Dionigi. ?Abroad, jobs are more merit based,? he said. ?Difficult to plan' The bleak outlook in Italy is also taking its toll on demographics. In 2016, Italy had the lowest birthrate in the EU, according to Eurostat. ?It?s very difficult to plan your personal life if you can?t find a steady job,? Arco said. ?Why would you think about settling down if you know you will have to move? How can you think about starting a family, if you don?t have a permanent contract? I can?t even think about getting a gym membership,? she said. The so-called ?brain drain? comes at a huge cost. ?It?s like suicide for a nation to invest in all this talent, and then give it away to another country,? said AlmaLaurea?s Dionigi. In the run-up to the national ballot, political parties across the spectrum have promised to improve the economic outlook, without giving specifics. For Dionigi, young people?s lack of hope is particularly concerning. ?If your young people do not have trust or hope, the country faces a real risk of being brought to its knees.?
  3. President Vladimir Putin called Russia's new generation of missiles "invincible" in his state of the union address. Photo: AFP WASHINGTON: The United States on Thursday accused Moscow of openly breaching Cold War-era treaties by developing what Russian President Vladimir Putin called a new generation of "invincible" hypersonic weapons and submarines. Putin unveiled the new arsenal earlier Thursday in a state of the nation address, challenging Washington to a new arms race ahead of a presidential election that will all but certainly confirm his grip on power. Putin left his usual Kremlin perch to this year speak from a nearby exhibition center ? allowing him to show a series of video montages of missiles crossing mountains and oceans, heading over the Atlantic before striking the US eastern seaboard. He quoted a speech he gave in 2004, vowing that Russia would develop a new generation of weaponry, a promise that he said he has now fulfilled. "No one really wanted to talk to us basically. No one listened to us then. Listen to us now," Putin said, prompting a standing ovation from the audience of top officials, lawmakers and celebrities. He presented Russia?s military efforts as a response to recent actions by the United States, which last month unveiled plans to revamp its own nuclear arsenal and develop new low-yield atomic weapons. ?Cheesy? attack video The State Department expressed outrage at Putin?s presentation and his "cheesy" animated video of warheads over US soil -- and said the Russian leader had confirmed long-held allegations about his program. "It was certainly unfortunate to have watched the video animation that depicted a nuclear attack on the United States," spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters. "That?s something that we certainly didn?t enjoy watching. We don?t regard that as the behaviour of a responsible international player," she added. "President Putin has confirmed what the United States government has known for a long time but that Russia has denied prior to this," she added. "Russia has been developing destabilizing weapons systems for more than a decade in direct violation of its treaty obligations." Specifically, Nauert said that Moscow had proven itself in violation of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), through its development of ground-launched cruise missiles. The Pentagon reacted with more equanimity, with a spokesman insisting that the US military remains "fully prepared" to react to "anything that comes our way." The United States has long accused Russia of breaching the INF treaty and, while it is modernizing its own nuclear arsenal, says that it remains in compliance with the terms of the Cold War accord. The spat came as relations between the powers lie frozen at levels not seen since the Cold War over the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria and accusations that Moscow interfered in the US presidential election in 2016. Also Thursday, the US formally approved the sale of Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine, which is fighting a Russian-backed insurgency in the east of the country. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Ukraine has asked President Donald Trump?s US administration for permission to buy 210 missiles and 37 launchers at a cost of around $47 million ?Fantastic? submarines In a speech that ran almost two hours, Putin showed tests of a new missile system that he said could fly at 20 times the speed of sound and maneuver up and down, and is not owned by any other country. "This makes it absolutely invincible for any forms of air and missile defense," he boasted, calling it an "ideal weapon." Russia has also developed unmanned underwater devices that move much faster than submarines and torpedoes and can carry nuclear warheads, Putin said, adding: "It?s just fantastic!" Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu later said Russian arms would be able to "overcome all existing anti-missile systems" such as those the US intends to deploy in eastern Europe and South Korea. "This anti-missile ?umbrella? turns out to be a bit ?leaky?," he said in comments released by his ministry. Putin, who has led Russia for almost two decades and is seeking in the March 18 election a historic fourth Kremlin term that would extend his rule to 2024, also laid out a number of domestic measures in the speech. Putin has refused to take part in TV debates with other candidates, but the address suggested cutting poverty and improving the environment would be among the top goals of his expected new six-year term. ?Unacceptable? poverty The 65-year-old vowed to cut the country?s "unacceptable" poverty rate in half over six years, but said 22 million fewer Russians were now living below the poverty line than when he was first elected president. Putin, who coughed throughout the speech and was forced to pause to drink, was given an ecstatic reception in the hall during the televised address but some online comments were less complimentary. "The old man only perked up when he was talking about how he can destroy the world. A moment of truth!" former Kremlin advisor Gleb Pavlovsky said on social media. Despite Putin?s campaign promises when he returned to the Kremlin in 2012 after four years as prime minister, his last term was marked by a fall in living standards and Russia?s international isolation. Boosted by a slavish media and foreign military adventures such as the annexation of Crimea in 2014, his approval rating remains sky-high and official polls suggest he will take almost 70 percent of the vote on March 18.
  4. There are many reasons why you would end up in a scenario with a wet phone. Washing machines, accidental pot drops, the Indian monsoon or even a friend accidentally or intentionally shoving you into the pool are some of the probable reasons. We often fumble with our phones in the bathroom or sometimes forget that we left it on the sink. Some smartphones are water-resistant which is often mistaken for being waterproof. However, you are reading this for a reason and we urge you not to panic. You can follow these steps to save your valuable smartphone before you decide to get a new phone or have it replaced. We will be listing down a few things you should do and not do if you want to save your cherished smartphone. 1. The first thing you need to do is immediately remove it from water as quickly as possible. The longer you leave it in there, the more water will seep through components and cracks. There are some things you need to do right away and some things you need to avoid doing right after. 2. No matter what, do not try to switch on your smartphone. This is the primary reason for short circuits, leaving your smartphone unusable. Do not press any buttons, shake or bang the phone. It will probably cause the water to shift further into the device. (c) YouTube 3. Immediately try to pull out the battery if you can. This can minimise damage to the smartphone and prevent short circuits. Opening up an iPhone or any unibody device can be tricky, so we advise you look at some YouTube videos before you decide to open up your smartphone. (c) YouTube 4. Remove any protective casing if you have one on your smartphone and remove your SIM card and microSD cards as well. (c) Pinterest 5. Dry off everything with a dry towel or any dry cloth. Make sure you dry up the exterior of your smartphone as well. Make sure you dab the cloth as water can drain into other openings. If the water damage is more intense than expected, use a vacuum to suck out the water. Just make sure no peripherals are attached to the smartphone before you vacuum it. (c) YouTube 6. After you've carried out these steps, you need to dry up all the moisture within your device. You can either put the smartphone in a bowl/ziplock full of dry uncooked rice. Rice has hygroscopic properties which can absorb moisture. You can even use silica packets (like the ones used in shoeboxes) for better results. 7. You have to be patient and let the rice or the silica packets do their job. You need to leave your phone at a dry spot for at least 24 to 48 hours before you can fire it up again. You need to give your smartphone enough time for it to dry up otherwise it can lead to a short circuit. 8. After you've waited long enough, try turning your phone on. If it doesn't switch on then try charging your phone. If your battery refuses to charge, then the battery may be damaged. Make sure you have it checked by a professional to consider having it replaced. 9. If your smartphone gets switched on and works like it used to, keep an eye on it for unusual activity. Play some music to check if the speakers are working and make a call to check the condition of the mic. Make sure the touchscreen responds as it was before. Is your warranty still valid? (c) Pinterest Make sure you find the liquid contact indicator (LCI). You can look up for your specific model on Google and if the sticker has turned red, it means that your handset might not be covered under warranty. Manufacturers place this sticker so that it turns red when it comes in contact with water and can review your handset with a litmus test. If you have any other tips that may help a wet smartphone, please feel free to post your methods in the comments section below.
  5. Members of the Federal National Council agree that solving housing issues will help in combatting the ?weakening social structure?, as high housing costs make it difficult for men to marry more than one wife at a time. Photo: internet Authorities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have decided to grant a housing allowance to Emirati men who have two Emirati wives. The move is an attempt by to reduce the number of unmarried women in the country, reported the Khaleej Times. The UAE Minister of Infrastructure Development, Dr Abdullah Belhaif Al Nuaimi, made the announcement at the Federal National Council session on Wednesday. "The second wife should be provided with the same living arrangements as the first wife," said the minister. Members at the FNC session agreed that the grant will help decrease the number of unmarried women in the UAE. "The ministry should simplify the procedure for a man to marry a second woman, by providing him with housing opportunities, which will also solve the problem with spinsterhood," said FNC member, Hamad Al Rahoomi. Members of the council argued that solving housing issues will help in combatting the ?weakening social structure?, as high housing costs make it difficult for men to marry more than one wife at a time.
  6. SHARJAH: Peshawar Zalmi Skipper Darren Sammy said on Friday that he had complete belief in himself before coming to the crease against Quetta Gladiators that he could finish the match with his three shots. Skipper Sammy's heroic cameo steered Peshawar Zalmi to the victory stand against Quetta Gladiators in the mid-table clash held at the Sharjah Cricket Ground. The injured Windies all-rounder scored 16 off four balls, including two sixes and one boundary ? chasing the required ten runs in the last over of the game. Speaking after the match, Sammy said that the coach at the dugout also told him that he has to just hit three sixes. ?I have been in such situation before and was telling myself that I just have to execute three hits,? he said, ?I can't say anything about my injury right now but I am happy to win the match for my team.?
  7. Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian forward Neymar Jr reacts lying on the pitch during the French L1 football match between Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Marseille (OM) at the Parc des Princes in Paris on February 25, 2018. Photo: AFP RIO DE JANEIRO: Brazilian superstar Neymar will be sidelined for up to three months ? perilously close to the eve of the World Cup ? after undergoing surgery on his broken foot, his doctor said Thursday. The worse than previously announced prognosis came as the Paris Saint-Germain striker, 26, arrived in Rio de Janeiro on an Air France flight from Paris for Saturday?s operation. "The (recovery) period will be around two and a half to three months," national team surgeon Rodrigo Lasmar, who flew with Neymar, said. The injury has not only ruled the world?s most expensive player out of PSG?s make-or-break Champions League clash with Real Madrid on March 6, but more worryingly for the football-mad public in Brazil, also threatens the much-fancied national side?s build-up to the World Cup, starting in Russia on June 14. Lasmar, who will lead the surgery at a hospital in Belo Horizonte, underlined that there is no quick fix for the striker. "It?s not a simple fracture, but a fracture in an important bone in the middle of the foot," Lasmar said. Dressed in a black hoodie, a black baseball cap and wearing sunglasses, Neymar left the plane in a wheelchair. He smiled and took selfies with other passengers, before leaving on a private jet to an undisclosed destination. Serious fracture The initial assessment did not appear quite as serious on Sunday, when Neymar was reported to have suffered a hairline fracture of the fifth metatarsal, as well as a twisted ankle late in PSG?s 3-0 win over Marseille in Ligue 1. Neymar?s father had predicted "at least six weeks" out, while PSG coach Unai Emery even said there remained a "small chance" of getting him back in time to face Real. Lasmar?s assessment painted a graver picture. "Yesterday we went back to the hospital (in Paris) and made new exams that left the seriousness of the fracture very clear," he told journalists in Rio. "There was no doubt left regarding the treatment. We were unanimous in agreeing that it would have to be surgical treatment. More conservative treatment, without surgery, would present a far greater risk for refracture. We can?t run that risk." The drama is a big personal setback for Neymar who has been at the centre of the world?s footballing attention since his 222 million-euro ($264 million) move from Barcelona last August. He has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for PSG since arriving. But on Sunday he looked to be in tears as he was stretchered off the field at the Parc des Princes. PSG lost 3-1 to Real in the first leg of their European tie in Spain two weeks ago and are in danger of being knocked out of the competition in the last 16 for the second season running. Neymar misses friendlies Brazilians? attention is entirely trained on the World Cup, where they have ambitions of walking away with a sixth title after the humiliation of crashing out 7-1 to Germany in the 2014 semi-finals on home soil -- a match Neymar missed after picking up an injury in the last eight against Colombia. Even if Neymar gets back in time, he appears sure to miss two warm-up friendlies against Russia and Germany in March. "Brazilians have high hopes for the World Cup with him and many are afraid he won?t be able to take part," said one fan, kiosk owner Gabriel Tavares Barreto in Rio de Janeiro. "I think he?ll recover in time..., but that?s what Brazilians are worrying about," the 21-year-old said. Images of Sunday?s fateful duel between Neymar and Marseille player Bouna Sarr have been replayed incessantly on television, often in slo-mo. Lasmar said he was aware of the pressure. "It?s clear there are goals to reach in terms of timing and we will do our best to meet the deadlines," he said. The UOL sports website reported that Neymar may recuperate at his residence in Mangaratiba, on the coast of Rio state. The luxury residence has the facilities that would allow the star?s medical team to run a full physiotherapy program, the report said.
  8. From a country feared for its fast bowlers, a young boy has emerged with a bowling action uncannily similar to swing legend Wasim Akram From a country known and feared for its fast bowlers who just keep on coming, a young boy has emerged with a bowling action uncannily similar to Pakistani swing legend Wasim Akram. The former fast bowler recently shared a video from a Twitter user of an unknown kid bowling with an identical action and swinging the cricket ball in the backyard. ?Where is this boy??? We have serious talent flowing through the veins of our nation and no platform for these kids to be discovered. It?s time we do something about it #TheFutureOfCricketIsWithOurYouth,? Akram tweeted. The video quickly went viral on social media, as people marvelled at the boy?s ability to swing the ball so accurately and hit the stumps at such a prodigious age. It even prompted Wasim Akram?s wife Shaniera Akram to comment, ?Another Wasim Akram maybe?? Akram is currently the director of cricket operations for the Multan Sultans franchise in the Pakistan Super League.

  13. India is going to celebrate one of its favourite festivals soon and we genuinely can't contain our enthusiasm. The festival of colour is right around the corner and while we're gearing up to make it even more epic than usual, there are some dos and don'ts we need to keep in mind. The four-legged community definitely detests celebrating Holi with you because let's face it, they're not immune to the chemical induced gulaal! So, if you have pets at home or are a pet parent to a few streeties around your colony, here are some precautions you can take to prevent them from the toxic colours we usually play with. © Thinkstock While watching out for your pets, it's important to remember that some breed of dogs are more susceptible to damage than the rest. Dogs and puppies with not-as-dense fur coating are more predisposed to colours affecting them toxically than dogs with furrier coats. This is because the sparsely coated region is more open to allergic reactions and other ailments due to the chemicalised Holi colour. Keep Your Pets Away From Colour Of Any Sort Most of the colours available in the market (even organic) are a combination of various toxic chemicals such as zinc, lead and mercury sulphate. Humans can still survive after ingesting Holi colour but unfortunately animals cannot! Your dog or a pet at home can lick the colour off the floor or lick its own body and fall fatally ill. It's advised to keep your pets in a secure location while you're playing with colours. Keep Your Pets Away From Water Balloons Water balloons can cause grave injury to your pet's eyes and besides that, the impact of a water balloon is not very pleasant. If the balloon does hit your pet's eye, wash the eye with clean water. You can keep some eye wipes handy for your dog or cat, in case they get hit. If the irritation persists, it's time to take them to the vet. © Thinkstock Keep Your Pets Away From Little Children Little kids love playing with pets, and a little too much during Holi. They will try and put gulaal on them or play with water balloons. If the child is an eager beaver, then it's advised to keep him or her away from your pet! Take Your Pet Out For A Walk At Wee Hours On the day of the festival, take your pet out for a walk early in the morning, before people come out to play. This way, your dog gets his/her morning walk and is not cooped up in the house all day. It's safe to take your pet out in the evening but you must make sure he or she doesn't lick the colour spread out on the roads or parks, post Holi. Use a muzzle on them if you can. © YouTube Do Not Use Anything Other Than Shampoo In case your dog gets colour on his or her coat, do not use kerosene, spirits or hair oil on their coat in order to remove the colour. A normal dog shampoo will work wonders. No Sweets Please! This is a cardinal rule! Feeding your dog or cat sweets during Holi or any other festival is a big no no! Sugar is their mortal enemy! © YouTube If The Damage Is Done, Here's What You Can Do If your pet starts vomiting, excessively salivating, displays reduced consciousness or seems a little too lethargic or becomes unknowingly aggressive then be alert. It could be because they've swallowed the colour and it's affecting their system. Rush them to the nearest vet if you see anything unusual. © YouTube

Photo: Reuters KABUL: Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani said on Wednesday that Kabul is ready for talks with Pakistan, adding that they want to forget the past and start a new chapter. Calling on Pakistan to hold government-to-government talks, Ghani said the best place to hold peace talks is Kabul, according to Tolo News. Ghani made the remarks during a speech at the opening of the Kabul Process for Peace and Security Cooperation which went under way today. The conference, the first part of which was held in June last year, comprises representatives from around 25 countries, including Pakistan, and members of international organisations. The aim of the meeting is to find a settlement to the decades-long conflict in Afghanistan. 'Peace in Taliban's hands' In a message to the Taliban, the Afghan president said peace is in their hands today and called on the group to accept peace and come together to save this country. He said that the peace process and a ceasefire must be agreed upon and that Taliban must be declared a political group. Around 25 countries and organisations are attending the conference. Photo: ToloNews Ghani laid out several olive branches to the Taliban in his speech, saying the government will provide facilities and security to those who join the peace process, work on freeing prisoners, provide passports for Taliban members and their families and will issue visas, open an office for them including in Kabul and will also work to remove sanctions against Taliban leaders, according to Tolo News. Earlier, the Afghan president said consensus is still needed to take coordinated action among states to counter the threat faced by Afghanistan. Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani in his opening remarks said that peace in Afghanistan would benefit the whole region and the world at large. In a tweet on Tuesday evening, Ghani had said he would present a detailed peace offer to the Taliban and Pakistan on behalf of the Afghan people. "We wish to march toward a lasting peace in #Afghanistan and in the region!" he had said in the message.

  17. Let's be honest here for a minute: None of us, and we mean absolutely none of us, are satisfied with our particular mobile network. Calls dropping, not getting any network whatsoever, not just inside our homes but even at public places has unfortunately become a part of our everyday lives. So when the news of the freaking moon getting its own mobile network comes up, what else do you expect apart from widespread outrage? Moon to get first mobile phone network https://t.co/JF8mr6gc3V pic.twitter.com/VGxZpJfbAB — Reuters Top News (@Reuters) February 27, 2018 Now, we don't mean to be demeaning to everything that these amazing firms are achieving. We are talking about Vodafone Germany that has appointed Nokia as its technology partner in order to develop a space-grade network and Audi, that will be making the two Quattro rovers. Nearly 50 years after man first went to the moon, we're teaming up with @Nokia and @PTScientists to create the first 4G network on the moon. More details about the out of this world plan here: https://t.co/V85a2T83ra pic.twitter.com/IlKPQzBewL — Vodafone Group (@VodafoneGroup) February 27, 2018 And no matter how lame the question seems to be, it's pretty obvious that this would come to everyone's mind: Why the f**k are they doing this? Who are they gonna call? Well, the purpose of this project is to enable high-definition streaming from the lunar landscape back to earth. Basically, something that our non-scientific minds will find hard to comprehend. Anyway, all of this is great and we can't wait to see if they ACTUALLY are able to achieve this in one year but the case in point is that when we don't get proper network on Earth, why is getting a network on the moon the priority? Why is no one working on getting a good network here? Thankfully, it's not just us asking these valid questions. The rest of the internet is with us: 1. Everybody has the same concern So apparently the moon is all set to get a 4G mobile network.

  19. US President Donald Trump. Photo: Reuters file WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump discussed Iran?s ?destabilizing activities? and other security and economic issues in separate telephone calls with senior Saudi and Emirati leaders on Tuesday, the White House said. In calls with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates, Trump thanked them for highlighting ways that Gulf Arab states ?can better counter Iranian destabilizing activities and defeat terrorists and extremists,? the White House said. Saudi Arabia and the UAE, along with Bahrain and Egypt, cut off travel and trade ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of supporting terrorism and their arch-rival Iran. The United States is trying to resolve the dispute. Qatar denies the charges and says the four Arab countries aim to curtail its sovereignty. The two crown princes, as well as Qatar?s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, are planning to visit Trump for bilateral meetings in March and April, a senior US official said on Friday. The agenda for the meetings will include setting up a summit of the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council, the official said, which Washington hopes will be held later this year, as well as Middle East peace and Iran. Trump also discussed enhancing bilateral partnerships on security and economic issues with the Saudi and Abu Dhabi crown princes, the White House said.
  20. ISLAMABAD: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Farooq Sattar has said the party cannot perform in the upcoming general elections with the existing Rabita Committee. Holding a press conference, Sattar said it is better to forget about the forthcoming general elections in the presence of five individuals heading the party. He said that there is more than one head of the Bahadurabad faction. "One head of Bahadurabad party is Amir Khan, while the other is Khalid Maqbool. It is not possible to work with so many heads." The MQM-P leader said the biggest issue in talks with the Bahadurabad faction is uncertainty surrounding the head of the faction. MQM-P convenership petition in ECP: Response from Sattar summoned Open to negotiations with Farooq Sattar, says Khalid Maqbool Sattar further said that he was uncomfortable with the party being run by six heads and he is the only one to take the blame. The MQM-P leader also said that he would accept the Bahadurabad faction and embrace all its 24 members, but their lawyers have been setting them up. "What will they do if their deception is proved in courts tomorrow?" "I feel that we should not go to election commission or courts, while an arbitration committee is working to find out a way," he said. Sattar further said that arbitrators have been making efforts to save the MQM-P from fragmentation. "Talks have been ongoing, but on the other hand, they have removed me from the party." He also lamented that the other faction has always taken a lead in holding a presser against him.

Nawaz decided to not extend an invitation to Chaudhry Nisar, who has been associated with the Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz (PML-N) for over three decades, to the Central Working Committee (CWC) session held earlier today. The reported decision comes after Nisar openly opposed Nawaz's stance on the party's political strategy following the Supreme Court's July 28 verdict that ousted the former from holding public office. According to sources, Nawaz was not ready to invite Nisar despite the insistence of Shehbaz Sharif, Khawaja Saad Rafique, and Ayaz Sadiq. 'Issue between Nisar, Nawaz will be resolved' Earlier this month, on February 15, Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique had said that the issue between Nawaz and Nisar will be resolved. The federal minister was speaking on the recent issue between the two leaders over the selection of the route for Nawaz?s motorcade following the Panama case July 28 verdict. Rafique had said that Nawaz had not given any statement related to Nisar, adding that he is the one who suggested to Nawaz to take the Grand Trunk road route instead of the Motorway for reaching Lahore during the PML-N president's August rally. The statement comes after Nawaz in an apparent jibe at Nisar, who has publicly expressed reservations over various party policies, said that ?certain people had advised me against taking out the rally through GT Road?. Imran invites Nisar to join PTI fold PTI chairman Imran Khan on February 11 had invited the former interior minister to join his party's fold. In his informal conversation with newspersons, Khan had said it would be better if Nisar joins his party, promising his support to the former interior minister even he chooses to contest the next election as an independent candidate. "At times, one has to have a bigger heart in politics," he had said.
  23. Arguably one of the most destructive opening batsman in the world, David Warner leaning into a drive or jumping in the air to celebrate his ton hightlights the aggressive brand of cricket the Australian brings to the table. For someone who was initially labelled as a limited-overs slogger, Warner, over the years, has scored runs in all formats to prove what a thrilling prospect he is for the baggy green. Whether it's his batting or personal life, Warner is a hard man to hold down. If his bat isn't doing the talking, his mouth probably is, and either way, you can expect an assertive approach. The Australian opener, who currently jumps at every opportunity he gets to lead the national side, has now revealed his plans for life after cricket. © BCCL For a cricketer who continues to grow in stature with every game, the 31-year-old probably shocked his fans and the cricket world after he flagged the possibility of a career in politics after retirement. "After cricket, I wouldn't mind doing something," Warner told The Final Word podcast. "One thing that has been embedded in me since a young age is that I grew up in a housing commission. As a kid, I had to do everything at home with my brother just because my parents worked all the time. So whether it was dishes, ironing - all the normal things you do at home. Once I was able to go and work, I went and worked because we needed that money coming in to pay the bills. Me and my brother both paid a bit of rent when we were younger and I just liked looking out for anyone who was close to me," Warned said. The Australian southpaw played an influential public role in the 2017 pay dispute between Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers Association. Following his stint there, Warner has said he is interested in looking towards making a difference in politics after his playing days are over. © BCCL "During the dispute, it was a tough situation, you had your employers who were going up against our union and the players. So, I thought I needed to have a stance somewhere because at the end of the day, I want to play cricket for my country but for us to get a result or something in the middle - a happy medium - we had to fight for that. I am a believer in what I believe in. So, that was our belief, to get what we wanted. I sit back now and go, 'I probably regret how the situation was played out in the media.' And we do as players. But, if you believe in something you are going to have to fight for it and I wasn't going to stand down because we needed someone out there to speak about it. You can sit back and do what you like but you don't get anywhere unless someone speaks up and does something," he added. Well, we aren't sure if Warner's political career will be as glorious as his stint in cricket, but the prospect of Davey in a potentially new avatar did get social media excited. pic.twitter.com/bjm9Jx6T1Q — Vijay Singh ð®ð³ (@The_Rajput1) February 27, 2018 r there people like Nawaz Sharif in Australia? — Sachu™ (@CareNotNot) February 27, 2018 hope he doesn't marry 3rd time at 65 ð pic.twitter.com/NmY0O6rixj — Salman ðµð° (@Faisalabaddiii) February 27, 2018 He can join Pakistani politics. — Baks Ali Punjwani (@Bakhtawar29) February 27, 2018 Australia in general or just this? — Charlie Reynolds (@cwjreynolds) February 27, 2018 pic.twitter.com/OuvGyaRfLQ — Corey Norris (@coreynorris9) February 27, 2018 Oh my God this is fucking classic from Davey. — Nick Evans (@NickRoseyboy) February 27, 2018
  24. The festival of colours is just around the corner and there is no one who doesn't love this festival in India. While we are gearing up for our own plans, B-town celebrities are all set to host some big parties to add some vibrant colours in their lives as well. As per news reports, this year Ranveer Singh will be hosting a Holi bash for American singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams. © SLB films Talking to daily a source revealed, “Yes, it'll be a big Holi party. Pharrell is coming down to India to launch his new clothing line that is inspired by the festival of colours. Since Pharrell and Ranveer are the brand ambassadors of the same apparel brand, the idea was to bring the two young stars together. And since Pharrell will be in the city on the day of Holi (March 2), what could be better than bringing Ranveer, him and Holi together?” The source also revealed that Ranveer loves Pharrell's work and looks forward to this bash. So fresh and So clean @cactusplantfleamarket #vacavibes A post shared by Pharrell Williams (@pharrell) on Jul 30, 2017 at 5:37pm PDT On the work front, Ranveer Singh's film Padmavaat was released recently and the actor has been praised for his incredible acting and magnificent persona as he portrayed Alauddin Khilji. © SLB Films At present, he is shooting for Zoya Akhtar's 'Gully Boy' where he will be seen sharing screen space with Alia Bhatt. Even for this film Ranveer underwent a physical transformation and lost tons of weight for his character. Talking about how he does it he said, “I like to switch things up, I like to do different things. Coming off from Mr Bhansali film to Zoya film then I have Rohit Shetty film is interesting. For me, it's very important that I keep doing different things and the audience shouldn't know what to expect. It should come with double excitement attached to what will come next. I am very keen on not doing the same thing, to not repeat the trick. I am very happy that wonderful opportunities come my way. I think it's very rich phase for me creatively. Coming off from the character like Alauddin Khilji to Gully Boy and from there to Simmba is like venturing into two opposite spectrums. To cover that, it makes me fulfilled as an artist. I am very excited about my upcoming slate." © Twitter Other than this, Ranveer will also be seen donning the hat of a cop in 'Simmba' which is a remake of a South Indian film.
  25. Virat Kohli is not just a cricketer, he is a phenomenon and a brand. Of course, the fact that he is one of the most successful cricketers India has ever had only cements his position more firmly. From hitting boundaries inside the field to hitting fashion sixers, this man is constantly under media scrutiny, and rightfully so. Naturally, the youth of the country look up to him as a supremely aspirational figure - and he does live up to that. Sometimes, he does that by flaunting his success in a way that is rather materialistic, but whoever says material possessions don't work as inspiration should probably just go live in the Himalayas. Case in point, Virat Kohli's super expensive wallet. © Viral Bhayani Virat is carrying a Louis Vuitton Zippy XL wallet in black. Now that is pretty much #goals, when it comes to wallets. You don't even need to be a wallet connoisseur to know that Louis Vuitton is the ultimate OG brand for luxury bags and wallets. © Viral Bhayani Let's get straight to the point. You guys are definitely thinking 'How much does it cost?' by now. Well, we have done our research, and this particular wallet here costs $ 1,250, which is roughly around INR 81,144. © Viral Bhayani Now now, before you let your inner green eyed monster take over, let's just get real here. 80K isn't really a big deal for someone who is as successful as Virat. Also, he deserves it. It takes a lot of dedication and sacrifice to continuously perform for the country, and this is but a small indulgence for him. © Viral Bhayani We are in love with his overall look. The while longline t-shirt paired with the relaxed black trousers make for a super comfy yet stylish AF look. Plus those white high top trainers and the swanky black backpack - let's just say Virat knows about airport style as much as he knows about cricket. Kudos!
