  1. The fishermen tried to rescue to fish but to no avail as the fish soon died. Photo: Geo News screen grab KARACHI: A needle fish was found stuck in a plastic cup from Karachi?s coast, according to World Wide Fund for Nature- Pakistan spokesperson on Friday. The fishermen tried to rescue to fish but to no avail as the fish soon died. About 50 percent plastic is found in garbage which is dumped in sea near Clifton, according to WWF representative. Karachi coast under threat from waste KARACHI: There is a threat lurking in the waters of Pakistan?s largest city which will have a long-lasting impact. Federal Minister for Ports and Shipping Mir Hasil Khan Bazenjo has revealed that... The polluted Arabian Sea has become a nuisance for not just humans but also marine life. One in three marine animals are killed across the world due to marine pollution, pointed out the spokesperson. Needlefish generally swim near the coast and are known for their thin streamlined bodies and needle-like beaks. Generally, they have a lifespan of about eight years and some are capable for growing more than a metre in length.
  2. The one question that has haunted us for a long time is if we really are alone in this universe. Fiction and films have explored the possibility long enough to envision a futuristic world. There have been cases of UFO sightings in part of the world as early as the 8th century. An unidentified object was spotted in Kolkata in the year 2007 and was captured on camera. There have been enough hints for us to believe alien life exists somewhere in the universe. But looks like now we’d finally get evidence of life outside Earth. © Warner Bros Pictures NASA just announced the discovery of 219 possible exoplanets (planets orbiting a star other than the sun) in the Milky Way and out of these, 10 are possibly habitable Earth-like worlds. These 10 planets lie in their star’s ‘habitable zone’ or the ‘Goldilocks region’ where life forms can exist and water can remain in a liquid form. The region is the perfect distance from the star and is neither too hot nor too cold. © Reuters The exoplanets have been discovered as part of the Kepler mission. The Kepler space telescope was launched into space in 2009 and was designed to detect possibly habitable planets in our galaxy and observes just a small portion of the Milky Way. So far, a whopping 4034 possible exoplanets have been discovered by the telescope and out of these, over 50 were discovered to be in the habitable zone. NASA issued a statement that read: “There are now 4,034 planet candidates identified by Kepler. Of which, 2,335 have been verified as exoplanets. Of roughly 50 near-Earth size habitable zone candidates detected by Kepler, more than 30 have been verified.” © Reuters Susan Thompson, Kepler research scientist and lead author of the catalog study said, “This carefully-measured catalog is the foundation for directly answering one of astronomy’s most compelling questions – how many planets like our Earth are in the galaxy?” The detection of habitable worlds is a huge step towards discovering life beyond our world. In our never-ending galaxy that has 200-400 billion stars and over 100 billion planets, it’s just a matter of chance before other life forms are discovered. We just have to wait and watch and see humankind travelling to other worlds to contact aliens living on faraway planets. H/t – NASA
  3. VIRGINIA: A 17-year-old American Muslim girl was beaten and abducted after leaving a mosque in Virginia on Sunday by a man who police later arrested on suspicion of murder after her body was found dumped in a pond, authorities said. The attack spurred an outpouring of grief and horror in a Muslim community that has been gathering to pray at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society mosque about 30 miles outside Washington in observance of the last 10 days of Ramadan. The attack happened early on Sunday after the victim and several friends walking outside the mosque got into a dispute with a motorist in the community of Sterling, the Fairfax County Police Department said in a statement. At one point, the motorist got out of his car and assaulted the girl, police said. The teen was reported missing by her friends who scattered during the attack and could not find her afterwards, touching off an hours-long search by authorities in Fairfax and Loudoun counties. At around 3pm, the remains of a female believed to be the teen victim were found in a pond in Sterling, police said. During the search for the missing teen, authorities stopped a motorist "driving suspiciously in the area" and arrested the driver, later identified as identified as Darwin Martinez Torres, 22. Police obtained a murder warrant that charges Torres for her death, the Fairfax County Police Department said. A police spokeswoman told reporters the attack followed some sort of dispute between the man and the girls, and authorities had not ruled out hate as a motivation for the attack. The number of anti-Muslim bias incidents in the United States jumped 57 percent in 2016 to 2,213, up from 1,409 in 2015, the Council on American-Islamic Relations advocacy group said in a report last month. While the group had been seeing a rise in anti-Muslim incidents prior to Donald Trump's stunning rise in last year's presidential primaries and November election victory, it said the acceleration in bias incidents was due in part to Trump's focus on militant groups and anti-immigrant rhetoric. In an incident in London on Monday, a van ploughed into worshippers leaving a mosque, killing at least one person and injuring several in what Britain's largest Muslim organisation said was a deliberate act of Islamophobia. Isra Chaker, a person who said in a Facebook post that she was close to a family friend of the victim in the Virginia incident, said the driver came out with a baseball bat and began swinging it at the girls, Chaker said. "She then went missing (presumably kidnapped/moved by the suspect) and was found dead this afternoon," Chaker said. An online fundraiser for the girl's family had raised $61,606 by Sunday evening. Police said a medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to confirm the victim's identity and cause of death, though detectives believe the body found in the pond was the missing girl.
  4. A number of missing American sailors have been found dead in flooded areas of a destroyer that collided with a container ship off Japan's coast, the US Navy said Sunday. The sailors were missing for more than 24 hours after the USS Fitzgerald collided with a much larger container ship before dawn on Saturday, causing heavy damage and flooding areas of the destroyer. "A number of sailors' bodies that were missing from the collision between USS Fitzgerald...and a merchant ship have been found," the US 7th Fleet said in a statement. "As search and rescue crews gained access to the spaces that were damaged during the collision...the missing sailors were located in the flooded berthing compartments. "They are currently being transferred to Naval Hospital Yokosuka where they will be identified," it added. Japan's public broadcaster NHK updated an earlier report that claimed all seven missing sailors were found dead inside the ship, saying instead that "several" had been found. The accident sparked a major US-Japanese search and rescue operation. The 154-metre (500-foot) Fitzgerald was pulled by a tugboat back to its base in Yokosuka, south-west of Tokyo, on Saturday, where divers searched damaged areas of the guided missile destroyer. The 222-metre Philippine-flagged ACX Crystal had large scrapes on its bow, but none of its 20 crew were injured, Japan's coastguard said. The accident happened 56 nautical miles (104 kilometres) south-west of Yokosuka, in a busy shipping channel that is a gateway to major container ports in Tokyo and nearby Yokohama. The missing sailors have not been identified. "The families are being notified and being provided the support they need during this difficult time," the Navy said. "The names of the Sailors will be released after all notifications are made." The cause of the accident is under investigation.

  6. MUMBAI: An Indian court on Friday found six men guilty of involvement in a series of blasts in the city of Mumbai in 1993 that killed 257 people and wounded 800, the latest in scores of convictions related to India´s most deadly bombings. The special anti-terrorism court said the six had transported weapons and planted bombs, which targeted landmark buildings in the financial hub, including the main stock exchange. A seventh man was acquitted on a lack of evidence. All of the seven men were arrested between 2003 to 2010.Arguments to decide on the sentences will begin on Monday, said Deepak Salvi, special prosecutor for the Central Bureau of Investigation, India´s federal police, who said he would seek the maximum penalties available for each of the convicted men. The maximum penalty is death. "It´s a victory for the CBI, Mumbai police and the people of India who trust in justice," Salvi told Reuters. Lawyers for the men were not immediately reachable. Legal proceedings against those accused of being involved in the bombings have resulted in more than 100 convictions, most of which are still winding their way through the legal system because of appeals and commutations of sentences. One suspect in the case, Yakub Memon, was hanged in 2015.
  7. Two teams of astronomers said Thursday they have for the first time detected a key chemical building block of life swirling around infant stars that resemble our Sun before its planets formed. The molecule, methyl isocyanate, "plays an essential role in the formation of proteins, which are basic ingredients for life," said Victor Rivilla, a scientist at the Astrophysics Observatory in Florence, Italy, and co-author of a study published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The findings could offer clues on how chemicals sparked into living matter on Earth several billion years ago. At the very least, they show that elements crucial for the emergence of life "were very likely already available at the earliest stage of solar system formation," said Niels Ligterink, a researcher at Leiden Observatory in The Netherlands, and lead author of a second study in the same journal. Scientists spotted the organic compound in a dense envelope of interstellar dust and gas circling three young stars some 400 light years from Earth in the constellation Ophiuchus, better known as the Serpent Bearer. Using the Atacama array of radio telescopes in the northern desert of Chile, the two teams independently isolated the chemical signature of methyl isocyanate, and then followed up with computer modelling and laboratory experiments to probe the molecule's origins. "Thanks to the amazing capabilities of current telescopes, we are discovering more and more complex organic molecules around the birthplaces of stars and planets," Rivilla told AFP. Life-giving but toxic Scientists also recently detected sugars in space, including a compound called glycolaldehyde, which plays a role in the formation of DNA structure. Methyl isocyanate beyond our atmosphere was first discovered two years ago, but in a very different context: near complex, high-mass stars many times bigger than the Sun. These are not environments that can yield planetary systems like our own. Earth and the other planets in our Solar System formed some 4.5 billion years ago out of matter left over from the Sun. At this very early stage of evolution, the material feeding the formation of the three-star system described Thursday -- known prosaically as IRAS 16293-2422 -- is rotating in a disk around each star. Some of the gas and dust will fall to the stars, and the rest will make up the planets. Paradoxically, methyl isocyanate -- and other chemical precursors to life -- are highly toxic, potentially lethal, to humans and other animals. "This makes laboratory work challenging," Ligterink noted dryly by email. Indeed, methyl isocyanate (CH3NCO) was the main poison in the 1984 Bhopal disaster in India, in which a leak from a pesticide factory on the night of December 2 killed more than 3,700 people. But in combination with other molecules, such as water, it transforms and can eventually lead to life-bearing compounds. One of the new studies contained a note in memory of the Bhopal victims.
  8. Smoke billows from the Resorts World building in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines June 2, 2017. REUTERS/Erik De Castro Update [04:52 AM PST]: Around dawn, the body of the suspected gunman was found in a hotel room in the complex close to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and an air force base. Police said it appeared the suspect had killed himself after firing at officers searching the still-smoking building. "Our assessment is he burned himself. He committed suicide," Oscar Albayalde, chief of the capital's police office, said in a radio interview. Officials said at least 30 people were hurt, some seriously, as they rushed to escape what at first had been feared as a militant attack. Update [04:20 AM PST]: The suspect in the firing incident is dead, according to media reports. The cause of his death is still unconfirmed. Philippines national police killed a man who fired shots inside a casino in the Philippine capital, AFP reported citing authorities. "He's dead. He was killed by our troops," police chief Ronald dela Rosa told the GMA television network. However, according to Reuters, the gunman killed himself, police said. Update [02:50 AM PST]: At least 25 people were hurt, some seriously, as they rushed to escape, medical officials, including those from the Philippine Red Cross' local Pasay Chapter, said. Jeri Ann Santiago, who works in the emergency room at the San Juan de Dios hospital, close to Resorts World, said 13 people were being treated, but more were on the way. Most of the patients were suffering the effects of smoke inhalation and some had injuries such as fractures, she added, explaining that none had gunshot wounds. In addition, windows were smashed at the casino complex as police searched for the gunman responsible, a local police officer said. However, a police officer at the scene mentioned there were no more gunshots, responding to an AFP journalist's prior report of more gunshots being heard. The policeman stated the sound of the blasts was from the windows being smashed, but could not say why the windows were smashed. On the other hand, 54-year-old Gil Yonco stood weeping in the street at around 5 AM local time, since his daughter had been inside Resorts World on the second floor. Yonco's daughter had called him for help because she was getting suffocated by smoke. However, there was no answer when he tried to call her back. "I am very worried as a parent, I need to find her," he said. Ronald Romualdo, a maintenance worker at Resorts World, said he saw a woman fall from an upper floor while trying to escape. "Several people were injured," he added. Update [02:30 AM PST]: At least three more gunshots have been heard at the casino complex as police look for a gunman who had fired an assault rifle earlier, an AFP reporter on the scene said. Some windows at the complex shattered as the gunshots were heard, according to the reporter, about five hours after the man went into the casino and fired what police said was an M4 rifle and then disappeared. Update [02:25 AM PST]: "We are looking into a robbery angle because he did not hurt any people and went straight to the casino chips storage room," National police chief Ronald dela Rosa noted. The top security official said the suspect was "foreign-looking, a Caucasian, about six feet tall". However, the gunman may have escaped because smoke had obscured footage for CCTV cameras, he added. Thirteen people had been treated at a nearby hospital for smoke inhalation and fractures, hospital staff told Reuters. Update [02:00 AM PST]: "There hasn't been anyone shot... there are only injuries from people who tried to escape in a stampede or from smoke," dela Rosa said on DZMM radio. The gunman, however, was still on the loose after firing an assault rifle, the national police chief said regarding the incident at Manila Resort, which is across a road from one of the main terminals of the Philippines' international airport. Some people inside the casino recounted feelings of terror when the shooting occurred. "I was about to return to the second floor from my break when I saw people running. Some hotel guests said someone yelled 'ISIS'," Maricel Navaro, an employee of Resorts World, told DZMM radio. "Guests were screaming. We went to the basement locker room and hid there. People were screaming, guests and employees were in panic," Navaro added. "When we smelled smoke, we decided to go for the exit in the carpark. That's where we got out. Before we exited, we heard two gunshots and there was thick smoke on the ground floor." Update [01:50 AM PST]: While Daesh immediately claimed responsibility, stating "lonewolf soldiers" from its group carried out the attack, as per SITE Intelligence Group that monitors terrorist organisations, dela Rosa said police "cannot attribute this to terrorism". He said it may have just have been an attempted robbery, pointing out the gunman tried to steal the gambling chips. Update [01:30 AM PST]: National police chief Ronald dela Rosa issues a statement on the incident. "There hasn't been anyone shot," dela Rosa said on DZMM radio, adding there was no indication yet it was a terrorist incident. "We cannot say this is an act of terror? he did not hurt anyone," he explained. Dela Rosa said the man, who appeared to be acting alone, walked into one of the gambling rooms and fired an M4 rifle at a large television screen, then poured gasoline onto a gambling table and set it alight. He said the man then fired again at a stock room containing gambling chips and filled a backpack with them. The man then left the room and went upstairs to a hotel section of the complex, according to dela Rosa, who added that there are no reports of hostage-taking, although the gunman has not yet been caught. "We have cleared the rooms (on the floor of the hotel the gunman was last seen) but we don't see where he is," dela Rosa said. Update [01:20 AM PST]: A spokeswoman for the US State Department said earlier it was not aware of any US citizens being affected but was continuing to gather information. "We remain in close contact with local officials," she said, adding that US citizens were advised to exercise caution and monitor local media for further information. Update [01:10 AM PST]: Through Twitter updates, the Manila Resort management commented on how Philippine National Police is carrying out an operation to analyse the situation, but refused to share further information saying it "may jeopardise their movement at this point". The company added that it has "no official information as to the identity or affiliation of the persons responsible" for the incident. Update [01:05 AM PST]: Philippines police chief says as far as he is concerned, there is no indication that the firing incident at Manila Resort was an act of terrorism. Update [01:00 AM PST]: A gunman with an assault rifle entered Manila Resort's gaming area and set fire to the tables, the police chief added. Update [12:59 AM PST]: Philippines Armed Police was seen entering Manila Hotel near Resorts World, a witness told Reuters. Evacuated employees and guests of hotels stand along a road and watch as smoke billows from a Resorts World building in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines June 2, 2017. REUTERS/Erik De Castro Update [12:50 AM PST]: US President Donald Trump Thursday expressed sadness and sympathy for victims of what he labelled a "terrorist attack" at a casino in the Philippines capital Manila. "We're closely monitoring the situation," Trump said in response to the gunfire attack, which was quickly claimed by Daesh. "But it is really very sad as to what is going on throughout the world with terror. Our thoughts and our prayers are with all of those affected." White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also tweeted. Update [12:30 AM PST, Friday]: Military spokesman Restituto Padilla said the police were in control of the situation and the army was monitoring closely. Policemen stand guard near evacuated employees of a hotel near a situation at a Resorts World building, in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines June 2, 2017. REUTERS/Erik De Castro Philippines Red Cross responded to the incident right away. Various people took to Twitter to talk about the attack. Original reporting [11:45 PM PST, Thursday]: MANILA: Gunshots and explosions rang out from an entertainment resort in the Philippine capital Manila early on Friday and local media reported armed men were inside the complex. The company mentioned that it is currently working with the local police to offer the best possible security to the visitors. Resorts World Manila said on social media it was on lockdown and the local fire department said a blaze was burning on the second floor of the building. "We ask for your prayers during these difficult times," Resorts World said on Twitter. Witnesses who spoke to radio stations said several gunmen were seen in the complex. News channel ANC said there were two gunmen, wearing masks and black clothes. The information could not be immediately verified. Smoke billows from the Resorts World building in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines June 2, 2017. REUTERS/Erik De Castro Pictures circulated on social media of the resort, close to the city's airport, showing plumes of smoke pouring from a building. A source at one of the resorts told Reuters that employees were being evacuated and declined to give more details. As the drama unfolded, dozens of police trucks and a handful of huge Special Action Force vans and armoured personnel carriers lined side streets near the hotel, casino and shopping mall complex. Heightened security The Philippines has been on heightened alert amid a crisis in the south of the country, where troops have been battling Daesh rebels since May 23. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte imposed martial law last week across the southern region of Mindanao to crush what he said was a rising threat of Daesh there. He declared martial law shortly after militants went on a rampage through the southern city of Marawi, which is about 800 kilometres (500 miles) south of Manila.

  10. Two days ago, on May 24th, the Indian Air Force’s fighter jet, the Sukhoi-30 went missing. The jet was being piloted by Squadron Leader Devesh Pankaj and Flight Lieutenant Achuth Dev. It had taken off from the IAF base in Assam and went off radar in under an hour, near the dense jungles of the Assam-China border. It was on a usual routine sortie when they lost contact. Search and rescue teams were pressed into action and only after two days of relentless pursuit, the debris of the jet has been found. The pilots though, are still missing, adding to the problems of the IAF. 72 hours on, wreckage of missing #Sukhoi30 found Read @ANI_news story -> — ANI Digital (@ani_digital) May 26, 2017 The media and the internet had to take notice and the pressure on the IAF and defense ministry is starting to build up. The news about the missing pilots is all over the Indian internet and people are seriously not happy. Flight Lieutenant Achudev. 25 years old. One of the 2 pilots in the missing IAF Su-30 fighter jet. Unimaginable how his family is coping. — Livefist (@livefist) May 25, 2017 While some are blaming the lack of technology required for a search and rescue mission. @livefist @IAF_MCC Both the Su-30 & also the earlier Antonov incident are a wake up calls for our Radar capabilities,their gaps & tracking abilities — Krishna Kant Sharma (@krishnakant_75) May 25, 2017 @livefist Also we have an advanced transponder named ADS-B that works on GPS. However, military aircrafts are not equipped with this. — Arya Ghosh (@Aryanaura) May 26, 2017 @livefist @IAF_MCC What progress technology has made? planes,ppl. go missing, vanishing in thin air and r not traced? — vc6000 (@vc60000) May 26, 2017 Other, suspect Chinese involvement in the matter. @livefist @IAF_MCC But why such n advanced fighter jet is not able to locate? Very mysterious or is it an intended cover up as it cud b shot down by chinese??? — wijit wij (@wijithwij) May 25, 2017 Fellow pilots have also been tweeting. Sqn Ldr Devesh was married & had a kid , while Flt Lt Acchu was a bachelor — Sumann Sharrma (@SumannSharrma) May 23, 2017 This isn’t the first instance when the IAF has lost a Sukhoi. Ever since it’s induction in the force, 7 Sukhois have crashed because of technological glitches. There’s still no word from the Air Force on whether the jet was shot down or it simply crashed. As the investigation continues, China’s involvement can neither be denied, nor be confirmed at the moment. As of now, we’re still in the dark but sooner or later, everything will be revealed.
  11. The stairwell where Ahmad was reportedly attacked. Photo source: 7 News A Pakistani woman was found wounded and in an unconscious state on the stairwell of an apartment block in Perth, Australia a few days back. According to 7 News, the woman was found lying in a pool of her own blood which was also smeared on multiple levels of the stairwell. Mehreen Ahmad, in her 30s, was studying primary education.

  12. The bodies of four climbers were found inside a tent on Everest, an expedition organiser said Wednesday, taking the death toll on the world's highest peak this spring season to 10. The climbers were found at camp four ? at 7,950 metres (26,085 feet) ? on Tuesday by a rescue team who were there to retrieve the body of a Slovak climber who died on the mountain on Sunday. "Our rescuers found bodies of four climbers in a tent at camp four yesterday. We don't have the details of who they are or how they died yet," said Mingma Sherpa, head of Seven Summits Trek, a Kathmandu-based agency that runs expeditions and rescue operations on the mountain. Local media reported that two of the dead were foreign climbers and two were Sherpa guides. The Nepal government liaison officer stationed at base camp could not immediately be reached for confirmation. Four people perished on the 8,848 metre peak over the weekend, including American doctor Roland Yearwood and Slovak climber Vladimir Strba. Both died above the 8,000 metre mark ? an area known as the mountain's "death zone" where oxygen levels fall to dangerously low levels, heightening the risk of altitude sickness. The body of Indian climber Ravi Kumar, 27, was spotted on Monday two days after he summited and then lost contact. A rescue operation is currently under way to retrieve his body. An Australian climber died on the Tibet side of the mountain on Sunday. This season has also claimed the lives of legendary Swiss climber Ueli Steck and 85-year-old Min Bahadur Sherchan, who died attempting to reclaim his title as the world's oldest person to climb Everest. More than 382 climbers have successfully reached the summit from the south side so far this season, with at least 120 doing so from the Tibet side. Many are still waiting to make their final push to the summit before the monsoon arrives in early June, marking the end of the short spring climbing season. Last year Everest claimed the lives of five climbers. In all, 640 people reached the summit.
  13. Researchers from France are claiming to have unlocked the WannaCry ransomware which has been infecting computers all over the world. They found a way to save Windows files that were encrypted by WannaCry and ended up finding a way to unlock those files. YouTube WannaCry has infected at 3 lakh computers in 150 nations where the malware threatens to lock out victims from their computers unless they paid an amount of $300 to $600 within one week. A group of security researchers coordinated across the globe and collaborated to develop a solution for the impending problem. They managed to unlock the encryption key for the files and has been confirmed by several security researchers. A loose-knit team of security researchers scattered across the globe said they had collaborated to develop a workaround to unlock the encryption key for files hit in the global attack, which several independent security researchers have confirmed. However, there is a catch with the solution. It only works in certain conditions i.e. it will only work if the computer has not been rebooted since becoming infected. Thinkstock Photos Europol tested the team’s solution and said it was, "found to recover data in some circumstances". Adrien Guinet, Matthew Suiche (a hacker) and Benjamin Delpy are the three teammates who managed to beat the ransomware. In a statement to Reuters, they collectively said: "We knew we must go fast because, as time passes, there is less chance to recover.” Delpy calls his free tool for decrypting infected computers without paying ransom, “wanakiwi". Wanakiwi has been tested and it was discovered that the solution works on Windows 7 computers and also the older versions of Windows XP. The solution is also compatible with Windows 2008 and Vista which is the majority of PCs that are running in offices and homes. YouTube Suiche also said that “This is not a perfect solution, but this is so far the only workable solution to help enterprises to recover their files if they have been infected and have no back-ups" which allow users to restore data without paying black-mailers. So far, there have only been 309 transactions yielding around $94,000 that have been paid to the blackmailing hackers. With the number of PCs that have been hacked, the total amount seems relatively negligible. This is probably because victims believe that the hackers will not honour their promises and would rather patiently wait for a solution.

  17. Mash-up, remix, and covers of original songs seem to be the latest fad in the music world. From ‘Kaala Chashma’, ‘Tamma Tamma’ to ‘Cheez Badi Hai Mast’, all these old songs have been turned into peppy numbers that we just can’t stop dancing to. Just like the Hindi ones, a lot of English songs too have been turned into ultimate mash-ups and Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’ seems to be everyone’s favourite muse. © YouTube We have seen innumerable covers of this song by now, yet whenever a new one comes we can’t stop our hands from reaching out for the headphones. One such version is this epic Bhangra mix of ‘Do You Know’ and ‘Shape Of You’ by DJ Frenzy. Bhangra beats can uplift the mood of almost any party and when it’s our favourite singer Diljit Dosanjh crooning with Ed Sheeran, madness can only be an understatement for our excitement. At times when a Hindi song is mixed with a popular English song, both of them lose their essence and value in the process of mixing. But, this mash-up is by far one of the best we have heard. From feet-tapping beats to synchronized rhythm and tempo, this song packs everything we need for an epic Sunday party playlist. Although we found this fantastic video almost after two months, we are not regretting it one bit. Instead, we are listening to it on loop, to make up for the time we missed out on.
  18. KARACHI: A woman was found dead inside a Karachi hotel room late Saturday, in what the police suspect as a murder. The body of the woman identified as Farheen, 28, was found from a room on the 6th storey of a hotel in Karachi's Saddar area, SSP South Saqib Ismail said. She was allegedly strangled. The official said the deceased had married a man, Shaheen, some two months ago after having fallen in love with him. Police suspect the woman was murdered and the culprit tried to purport it as suicide. The body was shifted to a hospital for medico-legal formalities. Police are on the lookout for the deceased woman's husband.
  19. International scientists have uncovered prehistoric human DNA from caves without bones, an advance that could shed new light on human history and evolution. The study published in the journal Science is based on 85 samples from sediments dating to the Pleistocene, a period that extended from 550,000 years ago until 14,000 year before the modern era. The samples came from eight caves in Belgium, Croatia, France, Russia and Spain. These archeological sites are already well known to have been occupied by long-lost cousins of modern humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans, as well as by a variety of animals that are now extinct. "This work represents an enormous scientific breakthrough," said Antonio Rosas, scientist at Spain's Natural Science Museum in Madrid. "We can now tell which species of hominid occupied a cave and on which particular stratigraphic level, even when no bone or skeletal remains are present." To uncover human traces, scientists relied on analyzing fragments of mitochondrial DNA. "The technique could increase the sample size of the Neanderthal and Denisovan mitochondrial genomes, which until now were limited by the number of preserved remains," explained Spanish National Research Council scientist Carles Lalueza-Fox. "And it will probably be possible to even recover substantial parts of nuclear genomes."
  20. Ever since Narendra Modi became India’s Prime Minister, his most famous and successful initiative has been the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’. And it seems like PM Modi and his incredible movement has now found a fan in, none other than, Bill Gates. © Twitter Bill Gates is already known for his dedication towards working on the ‘World’s Sanitation Challenge’ and now has also expressed his love and appreciation for India ‘Swachh Bharat’ initiative. He praised PM Modi for having an open discussion over the unavoidable issue of human waste and actually coming up with a solution for that. Indian Prime Minister @narendramodi put a spotlight on a subject that most of us would rather not even think about: — Bill Gates (@BillGates) April 25, 2017 On his blog,, Gates wrote a detailed and elaborate note on the same topic. He wrote,"Nearly three years ago, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made one of the boldest comments on public health that I have ever heard from an elected official...I can't think of another time when a national leader has broached such a sensitive topic so frankly and so publicly." © Twitter The main aim behind the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ is to put an end to open defecation all over the country by the year 2019 and this would be achieved by installation of 75 million toilets throughout India. Along with that, random littering in the streets would also be taken care of. Lauding Modi for actually translating his words into action, Gates said,"Even better, Modi backed up his words with actions...What I love most about Clean India is that it identified a big problem, got everyone working on it, and is using measurement to show where things need to be done differently." © Twitter Gates even brought out statistics to show the improvement. He wrote,”So far, the progress is impressive. In 2014, when Clean India began, just 42 percent of Indians had access to proper sanitation. Today 63 percent do.Today, more than 30 percent of Indian villages have been declared free of open defecation, up from 8 percent in 2015.” Recently, when Gates visited India, he shot a virtual reality video, which he called ‘Talking Toilets’. You can watch it here.
  21. Did you know that you can apparently buy stuff like tanks online? Yeah, me neither. But this tank fanatic literally struck gold when he got a new model in a £30,000 trade-in. Nick Mead, 55, was restoring the Russian T54/69 with his friend, Todd Chamberlain, 50, when they discovered the five gold bars, amounting to be about £2million. Mead wasn’t messing around with this stuff, he already has 150 military vehicles under his belt. He runs Tanks-a-lot, which basically gives regular people an experience of driving any of his tanks on his farm in Helmdon. © Twitter While exploring his new purchase, he decided to film the whole thing as he was concerned that there might be weapons concealed somewhere in the tank, and if so, his footage would be helpful to the bomb disposal crew. © Twitter Both Mead and Chamberlain were going through the tank and found machine gun ammunition. Then, they decided to look inside the petrol tank and instead of finding any more ammunition, they found something a whole lot better. They discovered 5 solid gold bars worth a whopping £2 million. © Twitter They believe that the gold was looted by Iraqi soldiers in Kuwait during the Gulf War. Nick said, "They must have cut a hole in the fuel tank and rammed it full of gold bars." While talking to the Sun, he said, "We didn't know what to do. You can't exactly take five gold bullion bars down to Cash Converters without questions being asked, so we called the police." © Twitter Even though the Police took away the gold bars, they provided him with a receipt. He added, "Even if I don't get any of the gold back, I will still have my beautiful tank."
  22. You and I, we both hate that one human in our sacred group who will hang in the air when a plan is made, smile all along, nod to everything and when the execution happens, disappears in thin air. Well, Joe Mcgrath is also that one friend who got schooled and trolled when he cancelled his vacation and bailed out on his buddies right before the vacation started. His friend found another ‘Joe Mcgrath’ and invited him instead and rest, is history! © Twitter Joe received a long message from one of the friends who explained him the situation. So this happened — Joe McGrath (@joemcgrath95) April 5, 2017 He eventually joined the group and not only bonded well with these strangers who are now his friends, he had a really good time. He shared his experience on Facebook. @o0alchemist0o — Joe McGrath (@joemcgrath95) April 6, 2017 Serendipity leads to amazing memories and that’s what this Joe got. @BrookeLVincent Made my year!! I've got myself ten new best mates — Joe McGrath (@joemcgrath95) April 5, 2017 This is one of those stories where a coincidence turns out to a life changing experience. Wonder if the other Joe regretted not going on the trip!
  23. Yes, it’s true. A man in Japan was found dead under a huge pile of porn magazines. In what sounds like a *** tragedy, the man’s collection of porn was so vast it weighed almost 6 tons, enough to make him stop breathing. And what’s even worse, his body was found 6 months later, when his landlord decided to check on him for unpaid rent. © AsiaWire The lonely Japanese man has been identified as Joji, a 50-year-old former carmaker. The circumstances of his death are not clearly established yet, and it is not known whether he died after the pile fell on him or if he suffered a heart attack and then fell under the sack. © AsiaWire His entire flat was found to be flooded with porn magazines; there were some cuttings from the magazines too, but clearly the pile was still enough to kill the man. It is no secret that *** addiction is a real thing in Japan. But that it can kill someone is not something one would expect. We guess online porn is safer than print.
