  1. ISLAMABAD: The Cabinet Committee on China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Friday assigned the ministry concerned to submit a detailed proposal regarding the import of electricity from Iran to specifically meet the future needs of Gwadar. Briefing the media about the proceedings of the cabinet committee meeting, PM's aide Musadik Malik said the participants held a detailed discussion on CPEC projects, including power and water supply, construction of Gwadar airport, free port, extension of the port, and development of the Special Economic Zones (SEZs). He said the committee had asked the ministry concerned to furnish proposals in coming weeks for import of the electricity from Iran. Malik said though Pakistan had already been importing a minor chunk of electricity from Iran, but on barter basis, to avoid violation of the international sanctions imposed on Iran. To a question, he said Pakistan was ready to complete the gas pipeline project provided the sanctions on Iran were lifted. He said the government had tackled the power crisis efficiently and the country would become power surplus in a short time. The PM's aide said China had provided a grant worth Rs22.25 billion for construction of Gwadar International Airport and the preliminary design of the project had been completed. "The work on the project would start by mid next year and would take another three years for completion." Malik said the government would also hold first global expo in Gwadar to promote investment in the country. He said the government was also strategising to end dependence on rainwater in Gwadar and had sought proposals in this regard to execute long-term projects to cope with water needs. He told media that nine SEZs would be established representing all federating units including Gilgit-Baltistan and AJK. The PM's aide further said the government had announced five-year exemption from custom duty for the parties developing the SEZs and ten year exemption for the industries to operate there provided they start functioning before June 2020. He said the government had installed gasification plant of 600 million cubic feet within 11 months and second one would be inaugurated within a couple of days. To a question, Malik said the finance minister was under treatment abroad and the prime minister was looking after the affairs of his ministry.
  2. The World Anti-Doping Agency maintained its suspension of Russia on Thursday, raising the spectre of a possible ban from February's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. WADA's Foundation Board, meeting in Seoul, came to the decision after its Compliance Review Committee recommended that Russia's anti-doping body, RUSADA, "should not be reinstated". The decision had been expected after Russia refused to admit running a state-sponsored doping system, as detailed in an explosive report for WADA by Canadian lawyer Richard McLaren. The International Olympic Committee is expected to decide whether Russia can compete in Pyeongchang at an executive board meeting next month in Lausanne. Russia was declared "non-compliant" by WADA in 2015 after the McLaren report alleged institutionalised doping culminating at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi -- where the hosts topped the medals table. Russia's secret service and sports ministry were accused of orchestrating an elaborate plot that included using a "mousehole" to switch dirty samples at the doping laboratory in the Black Sea resort. WADA has told Russia to "publicly accept" the report's findings and allow access to urine samples at its Moscow anti-doping laboratory, among its key demands before returning to compliance. Russian Olympic Committee president Alexander Zhukov admitted that Russia's anti-doping system had failed, but he said officials at RUSADA and their Moscow laboratory were to blame. "We accept the fact our national anti-doping system has failed... (but) we absolutely deny a state-sponsored doping system," Zhukov told the WADA meeting, echoing previous denials. He added that an unconditional recognition of the McLaren report "is impossible". Russian Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov pointed to improvements within RUSADA, and insisted it was independent of state control as he pleaded for the agency to be reinstated. "RUSADA performs all functions within the World Anti-Doping Code," he said. "I guarantee RUSADA will be fully independent, it is a totally new organisation. "We are ready to go forward and work openly in the full standards of WADA. Please let us be compliant." Progress has been made, and WADA has already partially lifted its ban on RUSADA, giving it the right to collect samples. It also audited the body in September. But suspicions remain. Foundation Board member Adam Pengilly asked how WADA could "trust" Russia's new anti-doping regime "until there is a real acknowledgement of what happened?" Last week, WADA also said it had obtained an "enormous" internal database of Russian drug test results from 2012-2015. Despite WADA's refusal to readmit Russia, it may not be fatal to the country's chances of competing in Pyeongchang. In 2016, the IOC ignored WADA's calls to ban Russia from the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro over the McLaren report, instead leaving the decision to individual sports bodies.
  3. If there's one thing a millionaire can't buy with his big (black) bucks, it's the ability of picking the right swimming trunk for himself. And no, this isn't about his style aesthetic at all. To say the least, swimwear are testimonials of a man's body type. With flapping back flab, short legs appearing shorter or engulfing bulges ruining someone's day—you're not to going to represent another Michael Phelps, you see. Okay, with the bulge, you might. Short story, shorter: a lot can happen with the wrong pair by the pool. Anyway, spare us your apology, time to pick the right one for your body type now. 1. Beer Belly Owners How To ID: Love handles, slight/big belly, saggy back fat. © Thinkstock/Getty Images We drink, over drink and fall flat on the face—that's what Saturdays are for. Over time, all that alcohol turns into fat, but of course, we cover it up with appropriate dressing skills. However, the problem arises when it's time for that Sunday swim (when no miracle allows overnight weight reduction). But if nothing, save yourself some added embarrassment—opt for swimsuits with relaxed elastic waistbands or ones with elastic at the back and zips up front. Don't let the fabric hold you too tight. 2. Morning Sprinters How To ID: Sculpted legs, abs, toned abdomen (with no abs), non-weight-training-body. © Thinkstock/Getty Images If you're a Joggers Park regular at 8 am every morning, chances are, your body fat percentage is reaching the gods. What we mean is, it's definitely at par with the ideal number. Plus, you're toned with just enough muscles rippling out. So, do yourself a favour and embrace that—do whatever the hell you want. Try bold prints/patterns/colours and even square leg swimsuits/swim briefs if you want. Baseline: just don't turn to loose, ill-fitted pairs. 3. Shorter-Than-Usual Jacks How To ID: Short legs, stout frame. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Message is clear: you need to add height to your torso. So, as a thumb rule, stick to short to medium length, but well-fitted shorts. For you, it's all about avoiding a cut in your leg length, so avoid pairs that allow that. Let your top half play the celebrity here and the extended length on your bottom half be it's Manager. Also, avoid drawstrings. 4. Very Tall, Very Thin How To ID: Stick thin (or not as much), Giraffe-jokes-sufferers, 6 feet or above. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Rejoice, you have one thing better than most men out there—a great body length. And that's all you'll need to make the cut. Celebrate it with short-length trunks or shorts (6-7 inch seams) to accentuate your legs and torso. Another suggestion: try going in for prints/patterns to add contrast to your frame and throw in a drawstring for added drama. You'll thank us. 5. Hulk Hogans How To ID: Rippling shirtless selfies, almost-naked Instagram feed, guns (and more guns), beastly legs, pumping chest. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Besides women, there's a lot that comes with a hulk-like body—added body volume, protruding quads and a lot more caution in picking the right swimming shorts. But it's simple: keep it short, just not too long. Maybe a 6" in-seam. You have the best-looking legs to flaunt, so be it. Though, with wider legs, you'd want to even opt for shorts that are comfortable for you. All in all, while breaststroking or getting out the mighty pool, be rest assured, you're going to attract gallons of attention.
  4. Ship "Polarsyssel" at Barentsburg, Svalbard, September 28, 2016. AFP/NTB Scanpix/Jan-Morten Bjoernbakk/Files OSLO: The body of a man who died when a Russian Mi-8 helicopter crashed off the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard on Thursday was found near the crash site at the bottom of the sea, the office of the governor of Svalbard said on Monday. Eight Russian men ? five crew and three passengers ? died on board a helicopter that crashed on Thursday on its way from the abandoned Pyramiden settlement to the coal mining port of Barentsburg. Norway searches for Russian helicopter missing in Arctic sea Snow and big waves hampered the search after nightfall ?The deceased was located by an ROV (remotely operated underwater vehicle) on the ocean floor approximately 130 meters (142 yards) from the helicopter,? the office of the governor of Svalbard said in a statement on its website on Monday. This was the first body located after the crash. The other seven individuals are missing, presumed dead.
  5. File Photo KARACHI: A dead body was recovered late Thursday night from a house near Sindhi Hotel in the metropolis' New Karachi locale, police sources revealed. Authorities said the body was found hanging with a noose around the neck. Another man was wounded during a robbery attempt in the city's Defence area, security officers stated. Police explained that the injured person was shot when he resisted a robbery attempt in Phase 5, Badar Commercial locale. 22 held in Hafizabad operation Law enforcement agencies rounded up 22 suspects during various search operations carried out Thursday night in different areas of Hafizabad. The detained suspects are accused of robbery and other major crimes, police said, adding that mobile phones, weapons, and cash worth hundreds of thousands of rupees were recovered from the arrestees.
  6. The new study suggests, however, that man's best friend may be very well aware of the reaction a scowl or grin will elicit from its master. Photo: AFP file Your dog may be a master manipulator, deliberately making puppy eyes to pull at your heart strings, according to a study Thursday into a ploy many mutt owners have long suspected. The research suggests that dogs may be in control of their facial expressions, using them to communicate, researchers reported in the journal Scientific Reports. Until now, it was assumed that dog expressions were involuntary. The new study suggests, however, that man's best friend may be very well aware of the reaction a scowl or grin will elicit from its master. "The findings appear to support evidence... that expressions are potentially active attempts to communicate," said study co-author Juliane Kaminski of the University of Portsmouth. In a series of experiments with different types of pet dogs, the team discovered that the animals "move their faces" more when humans were paying attention to them. Raising the brows, which makes the eyes appear bigger to produce heart-melting "puppy dog eyes", was the most commonly-used expression, the researchers found. When humans had their backs turned, or were distracted, the dogs' faces were much less active ? regardless of whether the human was offering a food treat or not. Previous research has shown that dogs are aware of how attentive humans are. One study, for example, showed they stole food more often when a human had their back turned or eyes closed. "We now know dogs make more facial expressions when the human is paying attention," said Kaminski. It was too soon, however, to state categorically that dogs have a perception of what a human may be thinking or feeling ? a state of awareness considered a sign of high intelligence displayed by humans, the team added. Research in non-human primates has suggested some of our far-flung cousins may also be aware that others can read their facial expressions ? which changed when they had an audience.
  7. MEXICO CITY: Emergency workers pulled the last victim?s body Wednesday from the rubble of Mexico?s September 19 earthquake, officials said, as the country turned to rebuilding after a disaster that claimed more than 360 lives. After 15 days of searching, workers found the final victim?s body beneath the mountain of rubble left by the collapse of a seven-story office building in Mexico City?s hard-hit Roma district, tweeted the interior ministry official overseeing the effort, Deputy Secretary for Human Rights Roberto Campa. "Based on lists provided by family members and witness accounts from people who worked (in the buildings that collapsed), as well as the testimony of friends and others, we no longer expect to find anyone else," Mexico City Mayor Angel Mancera said in a TV interview. The office building, which crumpled into a heap of tangled steel and concrete during the 7.1-magnitude quake, was the last active search site. In all, 49 bodies were recovered there, authorities said. Twenty-nine people were rescued alive from the building in the first days after the quake. Across the capital, 69 people were saved from the wreckage of the 39 buildings that collapsed. But no one had been found alive since September 22, and hopes that miracle survivors would be located beneath the rubble gradually faded. The last lives saved turned out to be two dogs and a parrot found nearly a week after the quake. The nationwide death toll stands at 366 people, with the largest number killed in Mexico City. President Enrique Pena Nieto was due to address the nation later Wednesday on rebuilding after the quake and another on September 7 that together caused an estimated $2 billion in damage.
  8. PARIS: Messing with your body's clock is dangerous business, in fact it could make you sick - or worse. The inner timekeeper dubbed the "circadian clock", governs the day-night cycle that guides sleep and eating patterns, hormones, and even body temperature. It is important enough that the Nobel Medicine Prize was awarded on Monday to three US scientists whose work illuminated the fundamentals of how it ticks. The trio identified genes that regulate the clock, and the mechanism by which light can synchronise it. Yet humans have a long history of overriding the circadian-driven need for sleep, Russell Foster, a professor of circadian neuroscience at Oxford University told AFP - the most obvious example being night work. Such tinkering with Mother Nature can have serious consequences ranging from impulsive behaviour to life-threatening conditions such as obesity and cancer, the experts say. Just look at the poor health records of shift workers such as nurses or factory labourers. The World Health Organization has already raised the red flag, with a 2007 report noting that "circadian disruption" is "probably carcinogenic" -- which means cancer-causing. The trouble is that the human body never really adapts to operating outside the normal cycle of working by day, and sleeping at night. Like everyone else, shift workers´ biological clocks are set by the rising and setting of the Sun - not their work schedule. "There is no medicine in the world that allows you to... speed up or slow down your body clock," said Claude Gronfier, a neurobiologist at France´s Inserm research institute. An 'exciting stage' When workers force themselves to stay awake, it triggers the release of stress hormones such as cortisol - the same one that rushes into your blood in a life-or-death situation. The chemicals may keep you on your feet, but they are a bargain with the devil. For example, cortisol works to suppress the immune system and in the long run can make you more susceptible to a range of illnesses, including cancer. Such a lifestyle also opens one up to eat outside of normal times, when the body's metabolism might be lower and the calories are more likely to be converted into fat instead of being burnt up. "You're raising your heart rate, raising your blood pressure and insulin levels at a time that you would not ordinarily do that," Hugh Piggins, a neuroscience professor at the University of Manchester, told AFP. "Your body is basically not ready for it and you're giving it a bit of an insult." Even short-term disruptions of the circadian clock can wreak havoc with your body. Just think jet lag. Flying from Paris to Los Angeles deposits travellers nine hours earlier in time, upending eating and sleeping patterns. The results can be blunted interaction with the world and a lack of empathy, complex thinking, or even clear memories. In such a state, people can do "overly impulsive things - jump the red traffic light and fail to see the consequences of actions," explained Foster. A better understanding of the workings of the body clock has opened up a fascinating field of the scientific quest. Circadian dysfunction has been linked to depression, bipolar disorder, cognitive function, memory formation and even some neurological diseases. Over the past two decades, scientists have been studying how the timing of administering a medicine can impact how well it works. Already they have found that changing the timing can reduce the toxicity of some compounds. "Now we are moving to the exciting stage where we can start translating some of this knowledge into understanding what happens when these systems go wrong and more importantly to develop new therapeutic interventions," Foster said.
  9. PESHAWAR: Polling for local body by-elections started early on Wednesday in 18 districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. According to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), the by-elections are being held for 56 vacant seats of village and neighbourhood councils. Polls will be held for seats for 30 nazims and 26 naib nazims in eight village and neighborhood councils. The ECP said that 23 returning officers has been appointed for by-election.
  10. Arguably one of the most popular and highly sought-after sportpersons in the country, Virat Kohli has taken huge strides both personally and professionally during his nine-year-old stint with Indian cricket so far. Kohli is currently the world's top-ranked batsmen in both ODIs and T20Is. To top it all, he looks in the best shape of his life. If that's not perfection personified, then probably nothing will. Just like a zillion women stalking Kohli on Instagram or Twitter, anyone who has been following the Indian Test captain on social media would have surely noticed the amount of gym and training sessions the Delhi lad undertakes to do what he does best - both on and off the field. © Instagram Once fond of butter chicken, Kohli has transformed his fitness level with the help of an intense fitness regime, which has subsequently helped him in his cause with the bat. And, the latest training video shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is a testimony to that. MUST WATCH: What goes into the making of captain @imVkohli's well sculpt body? Find out here: https://t.co/xfZGE4Iyge #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/2RgxxwOAr8 — BCCI (@BCCI) August 22, 2017 The video shows the Indian captain sweating it out in the gym while undergoing an intense fitness program. And the Indian cricket board couldn't have captioned it any better when they wrote: "MUST WATCH: What goes into the making of captain @imVkohli's well sculpt body? Find out here". Kohli is undeniably in the best shape of his life. But, if you down the memory lane and recall his early days in Indian cricket, you'd notice that the 28-year-old was not always a fitness freak, let alone a consistent batsman. So what really changed and, more importantly, how it all began? © Reuters Former Team India coach Duncan Fletcher might have fallen short on the expectations of the cricket-frenzy nation, but if it wasn't for him, we wouldn't have seen the 2.0 version of Kohli. "Duncan told me once that he feels cricket is the most unprofessional of professional sports," he told The Telegraph. "You can have the skill but do not think you need to train as much as a tennis player. But I realised if you want to stay on top playing three formats in this day and age you need a routine. You need a set pattern of your training, the way you eat, how healthy and fit you need to be. Being fitter made me mentally stronger. It was like a direct connection," Kohli recalled. © Instagram Following such an insightful conversation with your coach, one ought to feel a bit motivated. But, there needs to be a self-realisation propelled by the conscience growing on your back to take the initial steps towards achieving the goal. And Kohli's case was no different. Ahead of the 2012 edition of the IPL, Kohli was confident that he'd come out on top against the opposition bowlers. But, what really unfolded in that season was quite shocking. The Delhi cricketer failed miserably, scoring 364 runs in 16 games with just two fifties to his name. "My training was horrible, I ate so bad, I was up until late, I was having a drink or two regularly. It was a horrible mindset. The season ended and I was so thankful it was over. I went home, came out of the shower one day and looked at myself in the mirror and said you can't look like this if you want to be a professional cricketer," Kohli revealed. © Instagram After realising what he wanted to achieve, Kohli changed everything from the next morning including his diet and training. He began spending more time in the gym, went off gluten, off wheat, avoided cold drinks and even desserts. But, the next big challenge Kohli faced was to adhere to the strict regime that eventually made all the difference. "For the first two months I felt I wanted to eat the bed sheet when I went to sleep because I was so hungry. I was craving taste. I was craving delicious food. But then I saw the results. I felt quick around the field. I would wake up in morning and feel like I had energy," Kohli said. © Reuters "From 2015, I changed my training again. I started lifting, snatching, cleaning and dead lifting. It was unbelievable. I saw the result. I remember running after a ball in a Test series in Sri Lanka and I felt more power in my legs. It was, like, 'wow'. This training is addictive. The last year-and-a-half it has taken my game to another level," he explained. While he has surely set new standards in Indian cricket, Kohli's is a journey that can inspire a whole generation of aspiring cricketers and youngsters in the country, not only to get fit, but to also achieve their respective goals with adequate discipline in place.
  11. The damaged USS John McCain is docked next to USS America at Changi Naval Base in Singapore August 22, 2017. REUTERS/Calvin Wong SINGAPORE: US Navy and Marine Corps divers on Tuesday found some human remains inside sections of a US guided-missile destroyer that collided with a merchant vessel near Singapore, the commander of the US Pacific Fleet said. The USS John S. McCain and the tanker Alnic MC collided on Monday while the US ship was approaching Singapore on a routine port call. The impact tore a hole in the warship's port side at the waterline, flooding compartments that included a crew sleeping area. US Pacific Fleet Commander Admiral Scott Swift said an international search-and-rescue operation had found some remains and that the wider search for 10 sailors missing from the accident would continue until all hope was exhausted. "The divers were able to locate some remains in those sealed compartments during their search," Swift told reporters at Singapore's Changi Naval Base where the USS John S McCain is docked for damage assessment. "Additionally, the Malaysian authorities have reported that they have located potential remains. They are working to confirm and identify those remains." He did not specify how many remains had been found. The Malaysian navy said in a statement it had found a body eight nautical miles northwest of the collision site and it would transfer it to the US Navy on Wednesday. Swift also said Monday's collision ? the fourth major accident in the US Pacific fleet this year ? could not be viewed in isolation from other incidents and that investigations were seeking to find a "common cause at the root of these events". The Fitzgerald ? the John S. McCain's sister ship ? almost sank off the coast of Japan after colliding with a Philippine container ship on June 17. The bodies of seven US sailors were found in a flooded berthing area after that collision. The latest accident has already prompted a fleet-wide investigation and plans for temporary halts in operations. US Vice President Mike Pence said to have sailors killed in two collisions this year was disconcerting. "It's just unacceptable and we'll get to the bottom of it," Pence told Fox News. "But right now our hearts are with the families of those that are lost and we honour them." Ships, aircraft, and divers from an international search-and-rescue operation have been looking for the missing US sailors to the east of Singapore and Peninsula Malaysia, near where the accident happened. Aircraft from the amphibious assault ship the USS America, which was in port at Changi Naval Base, joined the search. Earlier on Tuesday, divers equipped with surface-supplied air rigs got into compartments in damaged parts of the USS John S McCain. Immediate efforts by the ship's crew after the collision on Monday were able to halt flooding into other parts of the hull, the Seventh Fleet said in a statement on its website. CNN, citing unidentified US Navy officials, said early indications suggested the collision was caused by a steering malfunction as the warship approached the Strait of Malacca. Swift said it was too early to draw conclusions about the cause and whether it was the result of human error. He also said there was no indication the collision was caused by a cyber attack but every scenario would be investigated. Aircraft and vessels from Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia have been helping with the search. Hole in the hull Swift said the US Navy was sending a team to assess the damage before making a decision whether to move the ship or place it in drydock. Singapore's Maritime and Port Authority said it had deployed 250 personnel for the search-and-rescue effort over an expanded area of 2,620 square kilometres. The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency said it had deployed more than 500. Five US sailors were injured in the accident, although the US Navy said none of those injuries was life-threatening. On Monday, US Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson said he was asking his fleet commanders worldwide for a one-to-two-day, staggered "operational pause" to discuss action to ensure safe and effective operations. He also said a comprehensive review would examine the training of US forces deployed to Japan. The US Seventh Fleet is headquartered in Japan. The accident comes at a tense time for the US Navy in Asia. This month, the John S. McCain sailed within 12 nautical miles of an artificial island built by China in the disputed South China Sea, the latest "freedom of navigation" operation to counter what the United States sees as China's efforts to control the waters. The state-run China Daily said in an editorial that increased activities by US warships in Asia-Pacific were a growing risk to commercial shipping. Also this month, North Korea threatened to fire ballistic missiles towards the US Pacific territory of Guam in a standoff over its nuclear and missile programs.
  12. There are days when you just don't feel like hitting the gym. But that certainly doesn't mean that you don't want to or shouldn't exercise. To get out of the regular rut, here are 4 bodyweight exercises that you can do at home. Be warned though, these are not easy to complete. 1. Plank Planks engage your abdominals, lats, glutes and deltoids when you balance yourself. The technique is quite simple. Place your arms on the floor, Palms facing downwards. Now focus the weight of your body onto your arms while framing a perpendicular angle at your elbow. Make sure that your spine is straight. Your body should be in a straight plane while you are in position. Hold the posture for at least 30 seconds to really feel that burn. 2. Side Plank The side plank is a variation of the exercise that we have discussed above. It focuses on your obliques along with abdominal muscles. From a front plank position, lift one hand in the air and tilt your body to one side. Now balance your whole body on the elbow which is on the floor. Keep your foot on top of the another so that your hips are off the ground. Hold the position for at least 30 seconds and try and add more time from there on out. It isn;t easy, but getting ripped isn't supposed to be easy. 3. Lunges Though it primarily focuses on your glutes it is a good exercise for your quads, hamstring and calves as well. Lunges can be done in various forms- like static lunges and walking lunges but the basic technique remains the same. Stand straight, take one step forward, while the other foot remains at the same spot. Bring your forward foot ahead so that the knee of the other leg touches the floor and the front shin is perpendicular to the floor. The front knee should be over your ankle and should not track over your foot. Now you can either do alternate lunges at the same spot or do walking lunges or backward lunges to create variety in your workouts. 4. Burpees If you want to do cardio at home, while also working on your agility, burpees are the exercise for you. Start with your feet underneath your hips, place your hands on the ground and jump your feet back to get into the pushup position. Perform a push-up with your whole body touching the ground. Then stand up and jump off the ground at a height of at least six inches. Perform this complete movement as one repetition. Perform maximum repetitions. This works your entire body, and trust me when I say that most high-level athletes swear by burpees.
  13. “It's like standing in the middle of a concert hall with a powerful audio-system,” says Jan Poope, the Czech artist who has invented an ‘audiopill' that, when ingested, allows the consumer to rave for 10 hours straight. The pill is said to create ‘euphoric pulsations throughout the body', thereby, allowing clubbers to experience the music from the inside of their guts. In an extensive interview with Dazed Digital, Poope opened up in detail about the pill and how it works. © Audiopill The project was released by Poope, on Indiegogo, an entrepreneurial website that lets users create and upload their startups and ideas in every field for showcasing and purchase. And in the words of the artist, “It's fun, but it's not a joke. It's a really functional device.” He accepts that the pill is in no way safe for use. It is said to cause an intensive pain, once ingested after which, it simmers down to the rhythm of a beating pulse. This ultimately, is said to lead to feelings of “restlessness, amazement and elation”. The effects of the pill, once swallowed cannot be turned off, or tuned out for 10 continuous hours, during which, whether the consumer likes or not, the internal rave goes on. The pill offers three preset beats, which are selected before swallowing. A magnet on the pill turns it on and sets the beats per minute. One is supposed to swallow it within 30 seconds of the beat kicking in and down it with some liquid. On the audiopill website (www.audiopill.net), Poope mentions that after swallowing, it takes about an hour for Audiopill to get the digestive tract down (you must hold your palm for the first minute to feel the beats). But when it reaches the pelvis area, the effect is very intense. Still, you regret your experimental courage. Jan Poope, whose father was a food chemist who developed a new cheese and had a lot of patents, tried the pill for himself and here's what he reveals to have experienced. “After 20 minutes, I got vibrations on the left side of my stomach, which felt a bit like I was going to have a heart attack. Two hours and forty minutes in, it became almost unbearably intense. Then three hours and fifty minutes in, my backbone was vibrating up and down. After six hours, I went wild – relentless twitching, paralysing tingling – I couldn't think of anything else! © Audiopill “It's like swallowing a vibrating cell phone. Strange vibrations move the innards. One important factor is that it cannot turn off, and it is not clear exactly how long it will take. I could restrict it electronically, but the uncertainty is a key element.” And what happens after? © Audiopill Poope claims that the pill may disintegrate in the digestive tract, or might remain in the caecum. If you're wondering why would the artist even create something that definitely isn't safe and doesn't guarantee anything, in the first place, read on. According to Poope, the audiopill is meant as nothing more than a “joyful experience”, to test our limits and see how far we can go. The goal, he says, is to make the person happy, to discover something new and surprising. © Audiopill Poope further reveals that people now hate him for having created the audiopill. But, he also reveals that while the idea was unsuccessful on Indiegogo, people began picking up on it anyway. “Information about my experiment has got to people, and some are interested in trying it. At the moment, I can't satisfy them, because prototype production is laborious and expensive. But I am very pleased that such people are in the world,” he tells Dazed.
  14. ROME: An Italian man has admitted strangling his sister, chopping her body into parts and dumping them in communal bins in an upmarket area of Rome, Italian media reported Wednesday. The man, identified as Maurizio Diotallevi, 62, confessed to the grisly crime after 10 hours of interrogation over the death of his sister, Nicoletta, 59, the Corriere della Sera newspaper and other outlets reported, citing police sources. The two shared a flat and are believed to have quarrelled over money. Police were alerted to the killing after the legs of the woman, severed at the groin, were discovered Tuesday night by a young woman who was rummaging through bins in Parioli, one of Rome's swankiest neighbourhoods. On Wednesday, the head and chest of the victim were extracted from another bin, near the flat where the brother and sister lived. Diotallevi was taken into custody after police examined CCTV footage that showed him dumping something into the bin where the legs were discovered. Neighbours express astonishment that Diotallevi could have committed such a brutal crime. A local bar owner told the Sky TG24 news channel, "He was a regular customer, you'd see him out walking his little dog, he seemed such a placid man."

  15. The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 is currently in the works and the two devices have just been filed with the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and it reveals that the two handsets are expected to have a Squeezable Active Edge feature. We first saw this feature on the HTC U11 and we will be seeing it again on the two upcoming Google smartphones. © YouTube The squeezable feature is expected to launch the Google Assistant by default, however, there is no word as to if the function can be mapped to other applications. The Google Pixel 2 was listed with product ID NM8G011A and will have the latest Android 8.0.1 software running natively. Even Blass, a known tipster predicts that the smartphone might release on August 21st, which seems a little too far fetched. The Edge sensors will work exactly like it does on the HTC U11 and is dubbed to be called ‘Active Edge'. The feature has been spotted in the new “Languages, input & gestures” setting. Another report by XDA Developers 9 has corroborated the rumour and claims that it would function similar to the Bixby button on the Galaxy S8. © BCCL According to XDA, one can also squeeze the frame to silence incoming which previously handled by the lock screen button. Having functionalities like a squeezable body is a logical move that manufacturers have to make in order to increase screen size and reduce bezels around the display. The new iPhone is expected to have a 3D face scanning feature to compensate for the big screen size whereas the Galaxy S8 opted to remove the home button entirely. Squeezable frames would replace physical buttons and give the chassis extra room to accommodate the larger screen size. The feature is said to be inside the phone and it would also not take extra space or add any bumps.

  19. The Islamabad High Court. Photo: File ISLAMABAD: Justice Aamer Farooq will hear a petition today (Wednesday) that challenged the constitution of a parliamentary committee to probe into MNA Ayesha Gulalai's harassment allegations against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan. Riaz Hanif filed a petition against the committee in Islamabad High Court, naming National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Gulalai, Imran and Islamabad Inspector General of Police as respondents. The petition alleges that the parliamentary committee formed to probe into the matter is based on ill intentions, and will result in the waste of money and time. "The National Assembly was formed for lawmaking and discussing matters of national interest," the petition states. "The PM deviated from the powers vested in him by the state by forming this committee." Hanif further stated that the order to provide security to Gulalai is wrong as she levelled allegations but did not disclose the language used in the messages.

Ayesha Gulalai's allegations should be probed fairly: Sherry Rehman 'Women do not level such allegations if there is no substance to them,' Rehman said "I am ready to sit in front of Imran and can confront him on the obnoxious messages that he sent. He put me through mental torture and pain," said Gulalai. As per Gulalai, Khan first sent inappropriate messages to her in 2013. Will not resign from seat: Gulalai The former PTI member addressed a session of the National Assembly on Monday and said she will not resign from her seat in the assembly, amid ruckus created from PTI benches. Gulalai, addressing the assembly after taking permission from the deputy speaker, said that she was elected on merit and would continue her duties as a lawmaker. Will not resign from seat, says Gulalai amid ruckus during NA address Gave voice to weak women and never compromised over integrity, says Gulalai ?Imran is not a deity that he cannot be criticised; character is important,? said Gulalai over noise created by PTI lawmakers. She further said that allegations were hurled at her family and she received death and acid attack threats. PM directs 24-hour protection for Gulalai Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Friday directed the Islamabad inspector general of police to provide 24-hour protection to Gulalai. PM Abbasi said he made the decision after seeing news reports of threats against Gulalai. "Have never seen such happenings in my 30-year political career," said Abbasi. Speaking in the assembly, the prime minister said he respects both the accuser [Gulalai] as well as the person against whom the allegations are being levelled [Imran], adding that an in-camera parliamentary inquiry committee should probe the issue.

Shireen Mazari ? wrote a letter to NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq, stating that a parliamentary committee that included PTI's political opponents 'has no credibility,' because ''political opponents can't be accusers, judge and jury.'

Currently, he is headlining the cast of the stage version of Mira Nair's ‘Monsoon Wedding' in the US.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">While in Los Angeles, apparently he was bored in his bedroom at 3am, so he decided to introspect the last four months of his life that consisted of intense performances and a strict diet.

  25. Desperate times can lead to desperate measures, at least that's what was going on in a woman's head when she decided to strap on 102 iPhones to her body and smuggle them to China. The woman was caught by customs officials as she tried to attempt to smuggle these phones from Hong Kong into mainland China. (c) Twitter However, it is funny to note that this was not the first time someone tried to smuggle iPhones into China. A man was caught in 2015 as he tried to smuggle 94 iPhones in 2015 and another man who managed to transport 146 iPhones in late 2015. (c) Twitter iPhones are considerably cheaper in Hong Kong when compared to the rest of mainland China. Smuggling iPhones at a cheaper price and later selling it for a premium has become a lucrative business not only in China but in India as well. Customs officials at Shenzhen noticed suspicious bulges and searched the smuggler in question. Apart from 102 iPhones, the culprit was also caught with 15 luxury watches and weighed in excess of 20 Kgs from her original weight. The street value of the 102 smuggled iPhone was around $1,00,000.
