  1. If anyone is asked to list down the best and the most down-to-earth cricketers in the history of the sport, there is no chance in hell that MS Dhoni and Rahul Dravid don't make it to that list. The world is well aware of Dravid's passion for his work and the fact that he never let unparalleled fame get to his head. As long as we can remember, he has stayed true to his humble self. In fact, the man even asked for a cut in his pay just to ensure that the India U-19 team and the support staff are paid equally. Pretty sure we don't need another proof of what a great human being he is. © Reuters And now, following his example, former Indian captain MS Dhoni has also accepted a pay cut in the new contracts that were announced recently by BCCI. Not only did he graciously accept it, he was actually the one who suggested the same for a very logical reason. © Reuters First things first, BCCI recently announced a new contract system and compensation structure for the players. As per that, there are now four categories in Indian Men's team– Grade A+, Grade A, Grade B and Grade C. The A+ category has been introduced for the first time and was the idea of skipper Virat Kohli and Dhoni. © BCCL After several discussions, the players were of the view that the new category i.e. A+ should only have players featuring in all three formats, players who are in the top-10 rankings and have been consistent with the performance. The players in this category will receive Rs. 7 crore annually. Basically, the more they play, the more they get paid. Now you might be aware that Dhoni does not play in all three formats. So keeping that in mind, he suggested that he should be in category 'A' where each player would be given Rs. 5 crore annually. It isn't easy to deliberately get your income deducted but Dhoni could not ignore the fact that it won't be fair to other team members. If this doesn't prove how amazing of a human being he is, we don't what will. © Reuters The players are now categorized in the following manner: A+ category (Rs 7 crore each): Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. A category (Rs 5 crore each): MS Dhoni, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Wridhhiman Saha. B category (Rs 3 crore each): KL Rahul, Umesh Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya, Ishant Sharma and Dinesh Karthik. C category (Rs 1 crore each): Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Axar Patel, Karun Nair, Suresh Raina, Parthiv Patel and Jayant Yadav It should be noted that the annual contracts are for the period of October 2017- September 2018 and the players do not have a permanent position in these categories forever as it is performance-based.
  2. The Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics' website went down just before the event's Friday opening ceremony, thanks to a cyber-attack, and stayed down for about 12 hours. The outage left users unable to print tickets or view information about the games. Some networks around the games venues also went down. Pyeongchang organizers have revealed that someone compromised services including TV and Internet while athletes were on parade. Everything had been "resolved and recovered" by the 9th, spokesman Sung Baik-you said. © Associate Press "We know the cause of that problem, but that kind of issues occurs very frequently during the Olympic Games," he said. "We have decided with the IOC that we are not going to reveal the source." South Korea's defence ministry and cybersecurity experts are included in the task force investigating Friday's attack. International Olympics Committee (IOC) head of communications Mark Adams suggested the problem could be ongoing. He also added "We wouldn't start giving you the details of an investigation before it has come to an end, particularly because it involves security which at these games is incredibly important. I am sure you appreciate we need to maintain the security of our systems." © PyeongChang Winter Olympics Cybersecurity experts had warned of potential attacks on the Winter Olympics, with both North Korea and Russia touted as possible sources. In January, a malware attack targeted organisations involved with the Olympics. The Winter Games are being staged only 80kms from the border with North Korea, which is technically still at war with the South since their 1950-1953 war ended. The two countries have only signed a peace truce and haven't officially ended the war. As The Week noted, the International Olympics Committee has formally banned Russia from participation in the games but allowed 169 athletes to compete under a neutral flag. Last month, McAfee said that it detected attacks in the months leading up to the games, in the form of malicious e-mails sent to Olympic officials. The company warned that further attacks were likely.
  3. Asma Jahangir. Photo: File Condolences poured in after the demise of human rights lawyer Asma Jahangir Sunday, with people paying tribute to her services for democracy and efforts in the judiciary movement. In a condolence message, President Mamnoon Hussain expressed grief over Jahangir?s death, saying she rendered unprecedented services for the rule of law. "Today the country has been deprived of a courageous and disciplined person, who was the voice of the voiceless," Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said over Jahangir?s demise. He added that the deceased lawyer fought fearlessly for rights of humans. Over her demise, Chief Justice of Pakistan,Justice Mian Saqib Nisar said the entire country paid tribute to Jahangir?s services. About the deceased, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said Jahangir would always present strong arguments over issues. Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif called Jahangir a staunch supporter of democracy, posting a prayer for the deceased on Twitter. Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Nawaz Sharif spoke about her work for women and stance against dictators saying it would be difficult to fill the void left by Jahangir?s death. Jahangir?s death is a great loss, said PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz. Pakistan Peoples Party Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari expressed shock over the lawyer?s demise, saying she was not just a person but was an effective voice for human rights. Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said Pakistan has become poorer with her demise. ?People like Asma are anchors of a society,? he stated in a tweet. Senate Chairperson Raza Rabbani said Jahangir spent her entire life working for the supremacy of the law. He added the lawyer?s efforts will always be remembered. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Asad Umar also expressed grief over Jahangir's demise. Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt also posted regarding Jahangir on, saying she was extraordinary woman who fought for ordinary people. Singer Ali Zafar said the lawyer's honesty and sincerity to her cause would always remain an inspiration for the generation.
  4. KARACHI: Five suspects were taken into custody during an operation carried out Saturday night in New Karachi Industrial Area, police said. Authorities added that weapons were recovered from the detained suspects, who, they said, were identified as Altaf, Nasir, Noman, Asif, and Imran.
  5. WASHINGTON: Technology won?t always save us. A man blindly following his GPS app has driven an SUV with two passengers on board into an icy lake in the northeastern state of Vermont, local police said. The trio ? friends from out of state driving a borrowed car ? escaped unharmed, local media and police in the city of Burlington said in their report of the January 12 incident. The unnamed driver of the Jeep Compass "followed the GPS directions, which advised to go straight, and upon following this he went down the boat ramp onto the ice," the report read. The vehicle initially slid, but the ice on the surface of Lake Champlain quickly cracked and the Jeep sank. The officer who wrote the report said he believed the driver "was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the incident." "The only visible portion of the vehicle was its rear bumper," as the rest of the car was submerged, the report said. It added that the time of the accident "there was a heavy rain and slight fog in the area." "I was speechless," vehicle owner Tara Guertin later told WCAX-3 local CBS affiliate television. "My first thing was, ?Is everybody OK?? Because this could have had a very bad ending, and luckily everybody was alright." The Jeep was finally pulled from the water on Monday. Guertin told local reporters that the driver was using the Waze app, which uses user-supplied data to help people find alternate routes to avoid traffic jams or speed cameras. Google, the internet giant that owns Waze, could not explain how the app directed the driver into the lake. "Waze maps are updated with millions of edits to adapt to real time road conditions daily, often making them the most accurate available," Google spokesperson Julie Mossler told USA Today. Mossler sagely advised drivers "to keep their eyes on the road and use all environmental information available to them to make the best decisions as they drive."
  6. ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah said on Monday that after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan?s statements denouncing the parliament, the resignations of the party?s lawmakers should have come immediately. The Opposition leader was speaking in his chambers, where he said that after the announcement the PTI leaders should not have waited or held consultations. It is equivalent to disrupting the system, said Shah, adding that the Pakistan People?s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and Co-chair Asif Ali Zardari have always vowed not to let the system derail. While slamming the PTI leaders for using bad language against the parliament, Shah was of the opinion that the law should be the same for everyone even when it comes to the perks associated with it. Shah said that the PTI has received more than Rs100 million from the parliament, apart from the facilities. While referring to the ongoing issue of former SSP Malir Rao Anwar, who is facing an investigation in relation to an extrajudicial killing, Khursheed Shah turned down news of supporting the controversial cop. He said that the Asif Ali Zardari is not backing the police officer. ?If Rao Anwar fails to present before the court, then he will face a judicial inquiry,? said the Opposition leader. Earlier on Monday, the Sindh Assembly passed a resolution condemning Imran Khan and Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed?s remarks against the Parliament. The resolution states that Imran insulted the Parliament by hurling abuses at it, adding that Imran should apologise to the nation. At the joint opposition rally on January 17 in Lahore, Imran had cursed the Parliament for allowing Nawaz Sharif's re-election as the party head after his disqualification. "I give Laanat (curse) the parliament that made a criminal the president of a party," he said, in an apparent reference to ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif being elected the PML-N president. Imran's remarks followed the repeated cursing of the Parliament from Rasheed, who also announced his resignation from the assembly.
  7. Name: Hanosh Udwadia Fitness had always been a passion of mine and I used to hit the gym very religiously, but never got the physique I was looking for. After a point, I realized that it was my nutrition that needed a fix. Reading a lot online, I got to know that a ketogenic diet is something that would definitely give me results. So I went on a hunt for an expert to help me out. I came across a very well known expert from an academy in India who preach 'Keto' and 'Low carb' to their followers. I was eating expensive coconut oil, imported dark chocolate, grass fed butter in my coffee and what not but did not see any changes in my body. Then a fellow from my gym who had a wonderful transformation told me about Pratik Thakkar, a co-founder of GetSetGo Fitness which is an online fitness company. © Hanosh Udwadia I decided to give it a go and the most funny thing happened. He told me to ditch all these expensive groceries and follow a very simple plan. I decided to entrust him with my fitness and followed it blindly. Fast forward 6 months and I could see my abs and my physique was looking amazing. I was eating normal food and supplementing as little as possible. Everything was well calculated, measured and timely consumed. The key is consistency. You have to be at it and give a diet time to show its results. © Hanosh Udwadia I got so better that some people in the gym started accusing me of steroid usage which I and my coach always took as a compliment. I have been maintaining my shape while slowly gaining muscle now. It's all about nutrition and how you plan your lifestyle around it. From January, I will be on a lean bulking phase for 6 to 8 months before cutting down again as I plan to compete in a physique show in 2019. Till then, I would just tell others that get a good coach, follow the plan consistently and stay away from drugs. Results will come. © Hanosh Udwadia
  8. Image Courtesy: Reuters video/Screenshot RIYADH/DUBAI: Saudi Arabian authorities have detained 11 princes after they gathered at a royal palace in Riyadh in a rare protest against the government suspending payment of their utility bills, the public prosecutor said on Saturday. Saudi Arabia, the world?s top oil exporter, has introduced reforms that include reducing energy subsidies, introducing a value-added tax, and cutting some perks to royal family members to try to cope with a drop in crude prices that has caused a budget deficit estimated at 195 billion riyals ($52 billion) in 2018. The princes had gathered on Thursday at Qasr al-Hokm palace demanding the cancellation of a recent decree that halted state payment of water and electricity bills for royal family members and seeking compensation for a death sentence implemented in 2016 against one of their cousins, Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabeer. ?Despite being informed that their demands are not lawful, the 11 princes refused to leave the area, disrupting public peace and order. Members of security services stepped in to restore order and the princes were arrested,? the public prosecutor?s statement said, without identifying the princes. ?Following their arrest, they have been charged on a number of counts in relation to these offences. They are detained at Al-Hayer prison south of the capital pending their trial.? News website Sabq earlier identified the leader of the group of princes by the initials S.A.S. The Saud al-Kabeer branch of the House of Saud descend from a cousin of late King Abdulaziz, who founded the modern kingdom. The meteoric rise of 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the king?s favoured son, and his ambitious, sometimes aggressive, policies have caused rare tensions within the royal family, which for decades favoured rule by consensus. Dozens of prices, high officials and senior businessmen were rounded up in November in a crackdown on graft that has boosted Prince Mohammed?s power. They have been held at the five-star Ritz-Carlton hotel in Riyadh while government officials negotiate financial settlements, asking them to hand over assets and cash in return for their freedom. The round-up followed a meticulously planned palace coup in June through which Prince Mohammed ousted his elder cousin Prince Mohammed bin Nayef as heir to the throne.
  9. PM Abbasi chairing an NSC committee meeting - File Photo ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will chair a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) on Tuesday. The agenda will primarily focus on US President Donald Trump?s tweet regarding Pakistan. "The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools," Trump said in the early-morning New Year's Day tweet. "They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!" The meeting was originally scheduled to take place on Wednesday along with a meeting of the federal cabinet. The top civilian and military leadership of the country will attend the meeting. According to reports, the NSC meeting will be briefed by Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Pakistan's diplomatic efforts, while the Director General Military Operations will brief on the efforts taken in the fight against terrorism.

He is expected to brief the NSC on his meeting with high-level officials in the US. On Monday, Pakistan?s Foreign Office summoned US Ambassador David Hale to record a protest over President Trump?s tweet. Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, in a reply to the US president's tweet, said Pakistan will let the world know the truth and will be responding to Trump's tweet. He added that there is a difference between facts and fiction. The foreign minister, following the tweet by Trump, called on Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, sources informed Geo News. The meeting held a detailed review of Trump's statement, sources added, besides discussing the country's foreign policy. Pakistan capable of defending itself: Defence Minister Defence Minister Khurram Dastagir, in response to US President Donald Trump?s tweet, said that Pakistan is fully capable of defending its motherland. The jawans of Pakistan Armed Forces and civilians have given great sacrifices in the war against terrorism, he told a private news channel after Trump lashed out at Pakistan with threats to cut aid over "lies" about militancy. Pakistan fully capable of defending itself: Defence Minister Dastagir Afghanistan's war would not be fought from the soil of Pakistan, says Defence Minister in response to Trump's tweet Commenting on the tweet, Dastagir said Pakistan had extended unprecedented cooperation to the United States for eliminating Al-Qaeda from its soil and Afghanistan, besides fighting the war against terrorism. Pakistan does not have any safe havens for terrorists, he said. The terrorists from Afghanistan have targeted our armed forces and civilians due to which Pakistan has had to suffer a lot, the Defence Minister said. He made it clear that Afghanistan's war would not be fought from the soil of Pakistan.
  10. GUATEMALA CITY: Guatemala is to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, President Jimmy Morales said Sunday, following US President Donald Trump's controversial lead on the holy city. After speaking with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Morales wrote to Guatemalans on his Facebook page that "one of the most important topics was the return of Guatemala´s embassy to Jerusalem," from Tel Aviv where it is currently located. "For this reason, I am informing you that I have given instructions to the foreign ministry that it start the necessary respective coordination to make this happen," Morales wrote. Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon thanked Guatemala for the "important decision." "Wonderful news and true friendship!", he wrote on Twitter. Guatemala´s leader made the announcement on Christmas Eve, three days after two-thirds of UN member states rejected Trump´s decision to have the United States recognise Jerusalem as Israel´s capital. In all, 128 nations voted to maintain the international consensus that Jerusalem´s status can only be decided through peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. Only eight countries stood with the United States in voting no to the resolution held in the UN General Assembly, among them Guatemala and fellow Central American country Honduras. Guatemala and Honduras are both reliant on US funding to improve security in their gang-ridden territories. The two nations are, along with El Salvador, in what is known as the Northern Triangle of Central America. Violence, corruption and poverty have made them the main source of illegal migration to the United States, which is giving them $750 million to provide better conditions at home. Morales, like Trump, was a television entertainer with no real political experience before becoming president of Guatemala in 2016. Guatemala is 'pro-Israeli' On Friday, Morales foreshadowed the decision he was to make regarding Jerusalem, as he defended his government´s vote at the UN backing the United States. "Guatemala is historically pro-Israeli," he told a news conference in Guatemala City. "In 70 years of relations, Israel has been our ally," he said. "We have a Christian way of thinking that, as well as the politics of it, has us believing that Israel is our ally and we must support it. Despite us only being nine in the world (in the UN vote), we have the total certainty and conviction that this is the right path." Morales´s position has become fragile in recent months because of allegations of corruption against him being investigated by a special UN-backed body working with Guatemalan prosecutors. The United States ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, had said her country would "take names" of the states opposing its position, and Trump threatened to cut funding to countries "that take our money and then vote against us." Several significant US allies abstained from the UN vote, among them Australia, Canada, Mexico and Poland. Others, such as Britain, France, Germany and South Korea were in the majority of 128 nations denouncing any unilateral decision to view Jerusalem as Israel´s capital. The eight countries on the US side of the vote were: Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Togo. Following the US decision on Jerusalem, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas said he would "no longer accept" any peace plan proposed by the US, dealing a pre-emptive blow to a new initiative expected by Washington next year. Trump has tasked his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who had no prior experience in government, with spearheading the complicated peace plan efforts.
  11. ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa remarked that the country can become safe and strong following the vision of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. In a tweet, Major General Asif Ghafoor shared COAS's message on the birth anniversary of the father of the nation. He wrote: "Pakistan Armed Forces pay tribute to father of the Nation on his 141st Birthday. His vision of human values, social justice, equality and fraternity constituted motivation for creation of Pakistan. Following the same we can keep Pakistan safe and strong? COAS." The 142nd birth anniversary of Father of the Nation, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah is being celebrated across the country with traditional zeal and enthusiasm on Monday. The day, a public holiday, dawned with a 21-gun salute in the provincial capitals, with the national flag hoisted at principal government buildings. A change of guards ceremony took place at Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi earlier today. The cadets of Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) Kakul assumed the ceremonial guard duties at the mausoleum. PM for collective efforts to achieve Quaid's ideas Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has stressed upon making collective efforts to achieve the objectives of a stronger and developed Pakistan as set by the Father of the Nation, Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. Nation celebrates 142nd birth anniversary of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah 'Nation should retrospect how much we have succeeded in achieving objectives set by Jinnah,' PM Abbasi says In his a message on Jinnah's 142nd birth anniversary, the prime minister said this day has a special significance for the whole nation because besides paying tributes to the great leader, it was a day to reiterate the resolve for reviving Quaid?s thoughts and move forward with his ideas. "Throughout his life, Jinnah fought for religious, social and economic rights and identity of the Muslims of sub-continent on the basis of solid arguments and democratic principles," he said. "He not only gathered the Muslims on the platform of Muslim League, who had been subjugated by British rulers and faced Hindus? conspiracies, but also through his democratic struggle, he made the creation of a state possible, where all the citizens would have equal rights of life without any discrimination on the basis of colour, creed, religion etc."
  12. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Jahangir Tareen on Friday questioned the reason for his disqualification shortly after the Supreme Court ruled against him in its verdict. The PTI secretary general took to Twitter to express his views following the verdict disqualifying him. ?Accusations Rejected by SC 1) Misuse of authority,loan writeoff 2) Insider Trading 3) Misdeclared Agri income 4) London Property Full money trail accepted not hidden, declared in children's assets since 2011. And SC disqualifies me on mere interpretation of the trust deed???,? he tweeted. The apex court earlier today disqualified Jahangir Tareen but ruled in favour of PTI Chairperson Imran Khan in its judgment on the disqualification case against the two party leaders. The three-member bench had reserved the verdict in the disqualification petition against the two PTI leaders on November 14. Jahangir Tareen disqualified from Parliament With regards to Tareen, the judgment stated that the PTI secretary general had pleaded guilty to insider trading. Tareen cannot be termed honest and stands disqualified for life as per Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, according to the Supreme Court judgment. Imran Khan cleared, Jahangir Tareen disqualified by Supreme Court The three-member bench, headed by the chief justice, announced the verdict after 3:20pm Article 62(1)(f) reads: "A person shall not be qualified to be elected or chosen as a member of Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) unless-...he is sagacious, righteous and non-profligate, honest and ameen, there being no declaration to the contrary by a court of law." Moreover, the court ruled that Tareen used suspicious terms in his statements to the court. Tareen did not declare his offshore company, the court stated.

  14. Believe it or not, people are putting butter and coconut oil in their coffee (seriously, I am not making this up) and have named it bulletproof coffee or in short, BPC. Bulletproof Coffee introduced the world to “coffee hacking” and the novelty of butter in one's morning brew. As a result, it's become something of an internet sensation. People are talking about it. People are trying it. Many even claim it works wonders for them. Bulletproof Coffee basically, is a hot coffee, two tablespoons of butter, and a tablespoon of coconut oil or MCT oil (medium chain triglyceride oil), you stick it in a blender until it is one big ass fatty mess and then you drink it. BPC drinkers claim that drinking a cup in the morning instead of eating breakfast is a some sort of a ”bio-hack” to weight loss and mental superpowers. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Things get dodgy when we get into the claims of what it does. Some claims are extrapolated from nuggets of truth. Some are wildly baseless. The following are some of the most outrageous claims made about bulletproof coffee:- 1) I'm programming my body to burn fat for energy all day long. 2) You can lose a pound a day on this diet. 3) MCT oil as a miracle food. 4) It delivers longer-lasting caffeine without the spikes and crashes. 5) It eliminates hunger pangs. 6) It's the secret formula for improving mental focus and brain power. However, if you compare bulletproof coffee to your regular coffee, you'll find out that it is nothing special but an additional 400 calories of saturated fat. Now, claiming that drinking a fat laden, calorie heavy drink will somehow magically make you lose fat, is not only foolish but downright stupid. Bulletproof coffee at the end of the day is just a recipe like any other, not some “bio-hack” that will make you lose fat and give you mental superpowers. I'd have to say buttered coffee is the most overrated health food right now. The current trend of dumping butter into your coffee is ridiculous for a couple of reasons. 1) First off, the idea that it's a fat-burning drink is completely false. If anything, it's a fat-gaining drink. 2) Butter is not a magic food. If anything, it's a food that needs to be carefully moderated since it can adversely affect blood lipid profile by increasing apolipoprotein B (apo B) levels, which has the potential to raise the risk for cardiovascular disease. In addition to raising apo B levels, adding supplemental MCT oil to coffee has the potential to raise fasting blood glucose and triglyceride levels. Both of these effects are not conducive to good health. 3) One more little wrinkle here, as cream contains a substantially higher content of milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) than butter due to the churning process involved with butter production. Recent research has linked the higher MFGM content of cream to its more favorable effect on blood lipid profile than that of butter. So yeah, stick with cream if you're going to dress up your coffee, and don't buy into the imaginative BS claims made up by crazy opportunists and marketers. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Bottom line: It's almost certainly a bad idea. Ultimately, it seems to me that Bulletproof Coffee is a scheme to get you to buy some very expensive magic beans. There are better ways to get healthy, and there are tastier was to drink coffee that don't involve coating the inside of your blender with butter every morning. Keep it balanced, folks.

  17. KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan's Head Farooqi Sattar is addressing a press conference following party's high-level meeting. MQM-P's meeting was chaired by Rabita Committee Deputy Convener Kanwar Naveed Jamil, as Sattar decided to skip it. After the meeting, MQM-P members including Kamran Tessori, Nasreen Jalil, Wasim Akhtar had reached Sattar's residence to "pacify him". "Sattar bhai is upset," Tessori told the media, adding" we have come here to pacify him". However, sources suggested that Sattar refused to meet the party leaders. In the meeting, MQM-P members decided that the party?s name, symbol and manifesto will remain intact, adding that all members have expressed full confidence in Farooq Sattar?s leadership. The sentiments were expressed by Rabita Committee Deputy Convener Kanwar Naveed Jamil. Addressing the media, Jamil shared that the developments pertaining to joining hands of PSP and MQM-Pakistan were discussed in-depth. He said that three important decisions were made during the meeting. First is that MQM?s name, flag, election symbol and manifesto will remain intact, he said. ?MQM would stay the same as it was, political alliances are formed quite often and there is nothing extra ordinary regarding it,? he claimed, adding it has nothing to do with MQM?s integrity. The members also decided that MQM will contest the elections on the seats they have won earlier. Moreover, the party leadership has shown trust in the leadership of Sattar. Earlier, party members had shared that party head Farooq Sattar won't be attending the party's high-level huddle. The session is being held a day after MQM-Pakistan and Pak Sarzameen Party announced to regroup under "one name, one election symbol." Interestingly, it is being said that Kanwar Naveed also has his reservations against MQM-Pakistan joining hands with PSP. An official statement from the party stated that Sattar was not in attendance due to "personal commitments." According to sources, Sattar decided to skip the session due to internal pressure from some of the party members, who threatened to leave the party if Sattar headed it. Many other members tried to convince Sattar to not succumb to the pressure as it would create a negative image in the media, said sources, but Sattar still chose to skip it.

  19. Ankara mayor Melih Gokcek speaks during an interview in Ankara, Turkey, July 31, 2016. AFP/Adem Altan/Files ANKARA: The mayor of Ankara resigned on Saturday on the "orders" of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is seeking to revitalise the ruling party ahead of 2019 elections. Melih Gokcek ? a staunch Erdogan loyalist who had been in charge of the Turkish capital for 23 years ? said he was acting in the country's best interests. "I leave my post of mayor on orders from our leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan," Gokcek ? a member of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) ? said in a televised speech. "I bow to the request of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, not because I do not think I have been successful, not because I think I'm tired? but only because I think (Erdogan) can make our country a leader." Gokcek's successor has not been named. Erdogan co-founded the AKP as an Islamic-rooted party that also aimed to modernise the economy and push ahead with Turkey's EU membership bid. Erdogan has repeatedly made clear that the party needs to make "sweeping changes" ahead of the 2019 elections after it showed signs of weakness at the ballot box. He said in August that "successful" colleagues ? including MPs, mayors and regional party officials ? would be able to stay in their jobs but those showing "tiredness and weariness" would have to move on. Several mayors have since resigned, including Istanbul mayor Kadir Topbas who stepped down last month after 13 years in the key post. Turkey will hold municipal elections in March 2019, followed by presidential and parliamentary polls in November. While the AKP has never been defeated at the ballot box since first winning power in 2002, there have been signs its grip on power has grown slightly less tight in recent years.

  22. Following the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, former Indian president Pranab Mukherjee called the then Pakistan foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, who was in India at the time, out of a press conference and asked him to leave the country immediately, reported News 18. Mukherjee was then serving as India's external affairs minister and revealed the details in his new book, the third volume of his autobiography, The Coalition Years, 1996-2012, launched on Friday. The Indian minister had learned of Qureshi's press conference the day after the four-day attack began. He says in his book that he decided to call a journalist and interrupt the presser, and asked the journalist to inform the Pakistani foreign minister that he wanted to speak to him urgently. During their conversation on the phone, Mukherjee asked Qureshi to immediately leave the country and also offered the latter his official aircraft. However, Mukherjee writes, The Pakistan high commission conveyed Qureshi?s regards to him and said a Pakistani air force aircraft would take him home. The attack in Mumbai had claims over 150 lives and injured more than 300.
  23. You've heard of drag races, Formula One racing and NASCAR racing but have you heard about solar powered car racing, huh? Oh yeah, solar powered car racing is some next level automobile racing that isn't new, by the way, and World Solar Challenge held in Australia is a biennial affair. It's so not new that they are actually celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year, covering a 3000km distance between Darwin and Adelaide in a span of a week. So cool to have Batman swing past scrutineering this morning...of course when we say Batman we mean @stc2.nikola ð¦ #BWSC17 A post shared by World Solar Challenge (@world_solar_challenge) on Oct 4, 2017 at 5:33pm PDT All performance vehicles in the race come with all-electric powertrains that draw energy from solar panels fitted on to the roofs. This gives the race its essence, that is making racing a sustainable environment friendly sport. You can take the vroom out of the enthusiasts but can't take the enthusiasts out of the vroom-- automobile racing will go on for centuries to come, and while more and more vehicles are switching to all-electric or hybrid power trains that draw power from non-renewable resources like coal for electricity or petroleum for internal combustion engines, the need for self sustaining power emitors is imperative. The use of solar power here, makes sense now, doesn't it? But what is car racing if there isn't the deafening sounds of roaring engines and the smell of speed-burnt treads on tarmac? How fast can a solar power vehicle really go? Harnessing solar energy takes time, what's the point of a seven day long race that could've been completed in a few hours? In just ONE DAY, our 2017 teams from all around the world will begin their journey to #Adelaide ððð¼ #BWSC17 A post shared by World Solar Challenge (@world_solar_challenge) on Oct 6, 2017 at 9:27pm PDT Well yes, this isn't the kind of race where the super fast vehicle is just a motion blur, safety regulations have ensured that no vehicle crosses the limit of 110kmph. If you look at the vehicles, they look like boxes with sloping silver roofs and a bubble top; at higher speeds than prescribed, they might just topple over. These vehicles have been designed by young students from all participating countries, not by coachbuilders at Ferrari! The solar panels on the vehicles are immediately converting solar energy to kinetic energy, so it's a no-brainer that the vehicles aren't driven at night. That is why the trip could take up to seven days, although it adds an adventure element to the race because the stopover could be in a wild unsafe environment-- boo! At the end of the day, it may not be a Formula One quality race, but the vehicle that wins the challenge, emerges as the most efficient of the competition. The technology or design used to achieve this efficiency could be further developed to be used in high performance race cars-- only a matter of time! Time to rest in Tennant Creek ðð¼ @blueskysolar77 @teamarrowracing and NITech. #BWSC17 A post shared by World Solar Challenge (@world_solar_challenge) on Oct 8, 2017 at 11:10pm PDT That is exactly why World Solar Challenge isn't the only solar powered car racing programme in the world, there are others like American Solar Challenge, Dell-Winston School Solar Car Challenge, South African Solar Challenge, Formula G, Suzuka and World Green Challenge, who are also working toward the same cause while making it superfun. One last thing, you don't have to be competing to take part in this seven day extravaganza, you can just be out on an adventure in your solar power vehicle as a part of the Adventure Class, or get the best of both worlds as the Cruiser Class, racing like the Challenger class and adventuring on the way.
  24. WASHINGTON: The United States ordered the expulsion of 15 Cuban diplomats on Tuesday, accusing Havana of failing to protect their US counterparts from harm in a series of mystery "attacks" on their health. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, however, that Washington would maintain diplomatic relations even though the size of the US mission in Havana would be reduced to a minimum. "The decision was made due to Cuba's failure to take appropriate steps to protect our diplomats in accordance with its obligations under the Vienna Convention," Tillerson said. "This order will ensure equity in our respective diplomatic operations," the statement continued. "Until the government of Cuba can ensure the safety of our diplomats in Cuba, our embassy will be reduced to emergency personnel to minimize the number of diplomats at risk of exposure to harm." The attacks, which US officials initially suggested could have come from some sort of covert acoustic device, have affected at least 22 US embassy staff in Havana over the past few months. Those affected have exhibited physical symptoms including ear complaints, hearing loss, dizziness, headache, fatigue, cognitive issues, and difficulty sleeping. Tillerson said the US would "maintain diplomatic relations with Cuba, and will continue to cooperate with Cuba as we pursue the investigation into these attacks." US relations with Havana were only fully restored in 2015 - after a half-century, Cold War break - and have deteriorated since President Donald Trump took office in January. Last week, Tillerson said he was withdrawing more than half the personnel from the US embassy in Cuba in response to the unexplained attacks. 'Protect our people' The Cuban diplomats, who were given seven days to depart, were not declared persona non grata, a US official speaking on condition of anonymity said. Washington, he said, wants "to underscore to the Cubans that they must take more actions to protect our people on the ground." "Our position on assurances is not to presume Cuban culpability. What it does is require the Cuban government to be able to fulfill their obligations with the safety and well-being and protection of foreign diplomats in their country." The US diplomats leaving Cuba are expected to be out of the country by the end of the week. "We would need full assurances from the Cuban government that these attacks will not continue before we can even talk and plan" for resuming operations in Havana, he said. Most importantly, Tillerson wants "to focus on the safety and well-being of our personnel. Once having made that decision we then moved on to consider ensuring that there would be an equitable impact in our two embassies ability to operate." The State Department gave the Cubans a list of which diplomats they wanted to be expelled. Routine US visa operations in Havana were suspended indefinitely in response to the attacks. US officials had previously told reporters they believed some kind of inaudible sound weapon was used on the US staff either inside or outside their residences in Havana. Canadians in Cuba have also been hurt, with a source close to that country's embassy telling AFP that more than five families were affected, including several children. Observers doubt that Cuba would have risked antagonizing its neighbors at the end of 2016 - when relations between the former Cold War enemies were thawing, before they deteriorated under Trump. The head of North American affairs at Cuba´s foreign ministry, Josefina Vidal, earlier told state television that Cuba wants to work with the United States to resolve this case.
