  4. Ei-ichi Negishi of Japan (R) and his wife Sumire Negishi (2nd R) are surrounded by his family members as he displays his diploma and medal after winning the 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry during the award ceremony at the Concert Hall in Stockholm, Sweden, December 10, 2010. Henrik Montgomery/TT News Agency via REUTERS/Files A Japanese Nobel-winning chemist was discovered wandering in rural Northern Illinois and his wife found dead nearby, some nine hours after they had been reported missing from their home 200 miles away, police said on Wednesday. Nobel Prize winner Ei-ichi Negishi, 82, was transported to a local hospital for treatment after he was spotted walking near Rockford, Illinois, at 5 AM on Tuesday, the Ogle County Sheriff?s Department officials said in a written statement. Deputies later found the couple?s car and the body of his wife, Sumire Negishi, at the nearby Orchard Hills Landfill, the sheriff?s department said. Rockford is about 100 miles west of Chicago. An autopsy was pending on the body of Sumire Negishi but foul play was not suspected in her death, the sheriff?s department said. No information was released on the condition of Ei-Ichi Negishi. The couple was reported missing to the Indiana State Police at about 8 PM central time on Monday. They were last seen at their home in West Lafayette, near the Purdue University campus where Ei-Ichi is a professor of chemistry. The scientist was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2010.
  5. Police vehicles and officers guard the home of Nikolai Glushkov while his corpse is removed, in New Malden, Britain, March 13, 2018. REUTERS/Peter Nicholls LONDON: British counter-terrorism police were on Tuesday investigating the unexplained death of a Russian associate of late tycoon Boris Berezovsky but said the death was not thought to be linked to a nerve agent attack on a former Russian double agent. Nikolai Glushkov, 68, was discovered dead late on Monday at an address in Clarence Avenue in suburban south-west London. British police, who did not name Glushkov, said that they were investigating the death of a man in his 60s who lived on Clarence Avenue. Police said the death was not linked to the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury. ?There is no evidence to suggest a link to the incident in Salisbury,? the Metropolitan Police said in a statement. Counter-terrorism police were leading the investigation ?because of associations that the man is believed to have had.? Berezovsky was found dead in March 2013 with a scarf tied around his neck in the bathroom of a luxury mansion in Ascot, an affluent English town near the Queen?s Windsor Castle, west of London. The 67-year-old tycoon had been one of Russia?s most powerful figures in the years after the collapse of the Soviet Union. He was known as the ?godfather of the Kremlin? before fleeing to London in 2000 after a row with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Britain granted Berezovsky political asylum three years later on the grounds his life would be in danger if he went back home. His family feared he might have been murdered by enemies in Russia, but British police and forensic experts concluded Berezovsky had committed suicide. Glushkov had worked for Russian airline Aeroflot and at Berezovksy?s LogoVAZ car company.
  6. Since the first time we saw the 'Avengers', we couldn't help but get connected with the Marvel Cinematic Universe personally. Every super-hero film only increased our devotion to the franchise and now with a new Avenger movie in the pipeline, we just can't keep calm. (c) Marvel It's been almost a decade since the fans formed a solid bond with this franchise and it's the same with the crew of the film. After working for over 10 years together, Robert Downey Jr. shared how 'The Avengers' team felt more like a family now and we have no trouble believing him. (c) BCCL The 52-year-old actor, who has left a strong imprint on our mind as 'Iron Man' in various Marvel movies, said that the whole cast and crew are looking forward to the release of the forthcoming 'Avengers: Infinity War'. (c) Giphy Talking about it he said, “We're going to pull out the stops, and stop exploring conventions, and look to do stuff where we go, 'Oh, but if we do that, that's very, very definitive'.” Isn't that really great? (c) 9e3K "We're like a family now. Ten years later, we're hanging out and having lunch, and kind of wondering when the draft is going to come in. Which one of us bites it and when?" Downey Jr added. Well, the 'Avengers' film is nothing less than watching a star-studded affair with a talented cast like Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo.
  7. South Korean actor Jo Min Ki. Photo: Allkpop A South Korean actor accused of sexual assault was found dead on Friday (March 9), reports said, as a wave of #MeToo accusations sweeps the country's still male-dominated society. Jo Min Ki, who had been accused of sexually molesting at least eight victims, was found hanged in a storage area in the building where he lived in Seoul, Yonhap news agency cited police as saying, adding that suicide was suspected. Most of his victims were drama students at a provincial university where he taught, it said, adding that the 52-year-old had been forced out of his professorship over the scandal, leaving his career in tatters. Jo's roles were mainly in television series, but he also appeared in a number of films. The #MeToo movement has gradually gained ground in South Korea, which remains socially conservative and patriarchal in many respects despite its economic and technological advances. Allegations of abuse have been made against prominent men in fields ranging from politics to the arts. Earlier this week, provincial governor and former presidential contender Ahn Hee Jung resigned after an aide accused him of multiple rapes. The last straw came when Ahn called her into his office on the night of Feb 25 and apologised for having hurt her, talking about the country's #MeToo movement, she told a television interviewer. "And then he raped me again," she said, holding back tears. Ahn presented himself to prosecutors on Friday for questioning, apologising and saying he would cooperate with the investigation. It was a stunning fall. Ahn was the governor of South Chungcheong province and came second to current President Moon Jae In in the contest for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination last year (2017). A governorship is seen as a springboard to a presidential bid and Ahn had been tipped as a front-runner among liberal hopefuls to succeed Moon, who can only serve one term. "First of all, I offer my words of apology to the people and the provincial residents," Ahn said outside the prosecutors' office, as a barrage of flashbulbs went off. "I also feel deeply sorry for my wife and children," he added, although he did not apologise to his accuser. In the arts, the most high-profile figures to be accused are award-winning film director Kim Ki Duk and poet Ko Un. An actress who refused to be named this week accused Kim and a top actor of rape, saying that she had quit acting afterwards and was in therapy for years. The allegations came after Kim's presence at this year's Berlin Film Festival caused controversy following a fine for physically assaulting a different actress. Kim told MBC television in text messages that he was only involved in "consensual sexual relationships". "I never tried to satisfy my personal desires using my status as a film director," he added. Seoul poet Choi Young Mi accused Ko, a top poet regularly tipped for the Nobel Prize for literature, of sexually abusing many women in literary circles, after publishing a thinly veiled poem "Monster" in which she detailed her experiences at his hands. His works and almost all references to him and two other alleged perpetrators will be erased from school textbooks, Seoul's education ministry said this week. Ko denied the allegations against him in a statement to the Guardian, saying he did "nothing which might bring shame on my wife or myself". Women in South Korea have long been reluctant to come forward about *** abuse due to fears of relentless public shaming and bullying. But a Seoul prosecutor in January made a rare move to speak out about *** abuse by a superior on live television, triggering a wave of accusations.
  8. Allegations of sexual harassment against Kevin Spacey was a major blow both for the Hollywood fraternity and the rest of the world. And while everyone was busy criticizing and condemning Spacey, it was his popular show 'House of Cards' that bore the brunt and got axed in the process. Until last year, we all were under the impression that Netflix has completely scrapped the show and its final season. But then, we also came across certain rumors stating that the final season will happen, sans Kevin Spacey. © Netflix Fast forward to the present time and amidst all the rumors of the show coming to an end, we now have the first teaser trailer of the much-awaited season 6 with Claire Underwood as the new chief, shining bright in all her glory and badassery. Season 5 ended with Frank Underwood's resignation, clearing Claire's path towards becoming the president. In fact, in the last scene, she even breaks the fourth wall saying, “My turn” and the new teaser picks up from that point, only to show how powerful Claire is going to be. © Netflix This 45-second teaser trailer starts with Robin Wright sitting behind the coveted desk in the Oval Office, a seat that was once occupied by her husband Frank Underwood. “We're just getting started,” the moment Robin Wright says this; we know that we are in for something fantastic. However, only time will tell how well this transition in power, not just on-screen but among the leads as well, will sink in with the avid fans of the show. The teaser trailer was first by Netflix during the Academy Awards. After a hiatus of a few months, the show finally resumed production in January and while the release date has not been announced, it is expected to release on Netflix in 2018 itself.
  9. Italy international defender Davide Astori died in his hotel room during the night of Saturday to Sunday, his club Fiorentina said on Sunday. A club spokesperson told AFP that he could not give a cause of death ahead of an autopsy. Italian media reported that Astori died of a heart attack during the night. In addition to the Fiorentina game, Sunday?s match between Genoa and Cagliari, one of his former clubs, was called off just before its 1130 GMT kickoff. When Astori?s death was announced on the stadium video screen, many of the players warming up walked off the field. Astori began his career at AC Milan, also playing for Cagliari and Roma before joining Fiorentina in 2015. He played 14 times for Italy.
  10. The UK division of troubled toy retailer Toys'R'Us is on the brink of collapse after failing to find a buyer - AFP LONDON: The troubled British arm of US retailer Toys'R'Us is winding down its activities, administrators said Wednesday, threatening up to 3,200 jobs through store closures. "Following the failure to attract a buyer for the business... administrators are conducting an orderly wind-down of the company's store portfolio," said a statement announcing the collapse into administration, or the process whereby a troubled company seeks independent financial advice regarding its future. "Whilst this process is likely to affect many Toys'R'Us staff, whether some or all of the stores will close remains to be decided," said Simon Thomas of administrators Moorfields. The British arm of Toys'R'Us narrowly avoided entering administration in December after a key creditor embraced its plan to already begin shutting stores and plug its pensions deficit. It was agreed ahead of the New Year that at least 26 of the 105 shops in Britain would close in early 2018, as the wider Toys'R'Us group faces increasing pressure from online retailers such as Amazon. Toys'R'Us filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in a US court in September, while its British branch has lost money for seven of the last eight years. The cost of operating the group's warehouse-style stores, opened in the 1980s and 1990s, has become prohibitive in recent times.
  11. For all those who have been waiting with bated breath for scraps of information regarding the 'Wonder Woman' sequel, we finally have some good news. According to latest developments, it looks like the ferocious Cheetah isn't going anywhere and will be the main antagonist in 'Wonder Woman 2'. People have been hungry to get any news about this highly-anticipated DC sequel but things are being kept tightly under the wraps. But now we know that Princess Diana will be going toe-to-toe with the Cheetah. © Twitter To play this character the Warner Bros are going after big names and if reports are to be believed they are targeting Oscar-winner Emma Stone for the part. The sequel to 'Wonder Woman' will pit the clawed super villain against Princess Diana. Created by William Multan Marston, Cheetah's character has four different incarnations since its debut. Definitely craving some Cheetah for the DCEU. Would love an Injustice League/Legion of Doom type flick for her appearance. #barbaraannminerva #cheetah #cheetahdc #cheetahminerva #cheetahwonderwoman #wonderwoman #injusticeleague #legionofdoom #dcvillains A post shared by hisboywondr DC APPRECIATION (@hisboywondr_dc) on Aug 3, 2016 at 7:14am PDT The script of the sequel is being developed by Patty Jenkins, Dave Callahan and Geoff Johns. Previously, actress Priscilla Rich had donned the hat of Golden and Silver Age Cheetah while Deborah Domains was the Bronze Age Cheetah and the third one was played by Barbara Ann Minerva. As per Hollywoodreporter.com this one is said to be based on current Cheetah Barbara Ann Minerva and the film is said to be based on 1980's during the abating days of Cold War. Diana's team always had her back. Bring home #WonderWoman on Digital and Blu-ray™ Now! A post shared by Wonder Woman (@wonderwomanfilm) on Sep 29, 2017 at 9:10am PDT Actress Gal Gadot will once again be seen saving the world as Wonder Woman. Chris Pine, Ewen Bremner and Said Taghmaoui will be seen returning as well. The film is expected to go on the floors by 28 May 2018 in London.
  12. Priyanka Chopra doesn't need any introductions. She's one of the most famous people not just in our country, but she's also managed to make a huge fan base all over the world. A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Feb 3, 2018 at 1:03pm PST Yes, we love her and yes, she still does star in Bollywood movies, but don't you think we're slowly losing her to Hollywood? It's a huge loss for our own film industry because PeeCee is an incredible actor and one of the biggest stars in the country. will miss you ocean.. #islandgirl ð§ð¼‍âï¸ðâï¸ð A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Feb 19, 2018 at 10:39am PST But, while she was holidaying it up last weekend, the internet was up at work and found the perfect doppelganger of her, and even we can't deny that the resemblance is way too real. Let's compare, here's Priyanka. Twitter And, now meet Megan Milan. Megan Milan/Twitter Look at them, they're practically identical! (And, if you disagree, sorry to break it to you, but you're racist.) So, I have a great idea. Since she's spending so much time in USA starring in her hit show and doing blockbuster movies, we should get Megan, who's a model, here to India. The internet gave us a big gift by finding Megan, but now it's all up to Bollywood to make the most of it. Till then, let's appreciate the internet and the people who found her. And, well, we don't have to say much about this joke, but Megan herself retweeted it. But, let's come back and admire Megan, the best celebrity lookalike I've ever seen, some more.

  13. Nehha & Ompi Online dating is a revolution that has hit the millennial hard in today's day and age and it has created various ripples everywhere. Young people find themselves on dating apps more often than ever and sometimes finding the right person becomes a prerequisite. Some dating apps are looked upon us hook-up portals or callous banters people like to indulge while some are taken more seriously as a platform to find the right mate and garner a healthy companionship with someone. In the lieu of the latter, Nehha and Ompi found a beautiful partner in each other through one of the most popular matrimonial apps called Aisle and this is their true love story. © Facebook The Beginning Nehha, an extremely exuberant and talented soul has never given up on love. A Bharatnatyam dancer and a cultural ambassador by profession, she has understood every aspect of emotion vis-a-vis expression and has always been a flag bearer for finding true, unadulterated love. Nehha and Ompi met through a very popular matrimonial app called Aisle which connects Indians globally and without a doubt, they hit it off instantly! It's strange, in a beautiful way how people get instantly attracted to someone's personality, that physical attraction seems secondary. The two virtual lovers had never met before but the attraction was so instant that questioning why hadn't they ever met before seemed so definitive and natural! First Date EVER! Defining a first date with someone you've met through the virtual space is a big thing because it's where you put all your inhibitions to sleep, eventually. If it's the same city, it's not so tough because all you have to do is pick a place, pick something nice to wear and be the best version of yourself (unless you've given a completely different picture of who you really are to the other person!). But when you're oceans apart, it gets a tad tricky! © Facebook Ompi at the time was residing in Sydney, Australia and Nehha steadfastly decided on visiting him there. They had been chatting over the internet often for a few months, using tools such as Facetime and Skype regularly and both unanimously decided to finally meet. Nehha scrupulously arranged for a Bharatnatyam performance in Sydney, so she wouldn't have to tell anyone yet what her real reason was to visit Australia! "He picked me up and we went to Sydney harbour bridge for a walk and then for my practice session for my performance! He sat through my dance practice and had a tear in his eye- that was our kind of a date!" - Nehha Although, their first real date was a few days later at 'The Bridge Room', a fancy Michelin Star restaurant, where they indulged in an eight course vegetarian meal and conversations to get to know each other a lot better! Their Favourite Memory Both their favourite memories interconnect just as their thoughts and ideas do! Nehha and Ompi recently tied the knot and the wedding was something out of a fairytale, just like they both had imagined it to be. They got married in a 13th century temple, near Nandi Hills, Karnataka, with their loved ones around to witness this beautiful happenstance. © Facebook I was nervous but excited- there was fog the entire way through to the 13th century temple- on way we stopped to pack some breakfast- Ompi was there but I wasn't allowed to meet him as we could only see each other at the temple- however I asked the driver bhaiya to stop the car a few feet away so I could see Ompi while I ate in the car. He was standing with his side of the family outside the restaurant — that one sight of him just melted all my fears away - Nehha For Ompi, the whole experience was overwhelming. He couldn't believe he found a kindred soul, someone who is much like him and he married her in the best way possible. "I saw her dressed in a beautiful sari, walking towards the mandappa, on our wedding day and my heart literally skipped a beat. I haven't seen or met anyone as beautiful as Nehha" - Ompi © Facebook And that was that. The wedding was a thousand beautiful words, spoken all at once, in a serene, quaint place, where lovers decorated the walls with their love stories! Online Dating In The Time Of Sanskar Some people take to online dating like fish to water but there are people like Ompi and Nehha who use this virtual reality to find something more meaningful out of it. The generation today is too rushed. Everyone wants their fair share to be understood by their partners and if their partner fails to do so, they go on 'swiping' spree. But when Nehha and Ompi took to online dating, they were a little less precarious than that. They both were seemingly tired of meandering through various online profiles to find the right match because for them the right match meant eventuality and not just another night of dinner and a movie, with a make out session on the side! © Facebook "It has been nothing short of a spiritual union. Ompi has been an echo I have been aching to hear all my life. A validation if my beliefs, of what i stand for, of my worldview. It's so heartening to know that youre not alone and that there are others out there- especially of the opposite gender' - Nehha Finding your partner though a matrimonial or a dating website is a new vibrant re-discovery. Earlier people used to do it through newspapers or familiarity. When matrimonial sites came up, generation X laughed out loud at the sense of validation it brought along. Only when dating apps such as Tinder hit the youth, matrimonial apps came back in fashion again. Why? Because dating apps remind the youth today that people are actually frivolous and real relationships have a chance at being callous. Hence a matrimonial apps have a better chance at finding the best version of reality you're actually looking for! And that's exactly what a Maharashtran woman and a Kannadiga man found through a dating/matrimonial app, true love and a soulful companion for life! "Ompi has taught me that life is a classic paradox. For everything that is good it is also bad- for every emotion you feel, the opposite is also true from time to time. Therefore to blanket anything as finality is hard. Human beings are good in general just a bit lost he says- we just have to look for the good in them and in us" - Nehha Love In The Time Of Sanskar We're putting together a little ceremonious saga of a few real-time, beautiful couples, who've gone through their ups and downs in life, together and apart, and come back to share their inspirational tales, with the world! We really do believe in pure sanctimonious love and there isn't a better way to celebrate love than to project these stories out to everyone who is hopeful of love and togetherness, through our series 'Love In The Time Of Sanskar'. Love is creation, in this expansive universe and while we learn to create something so beautiful and life altering, we also learn how to express this creation, along the way. Love can be moulded into any form and most of us experience it in our life as something malleable and tangible, something that can be directly influence our personal growth and lifelong desires. While there are many beautiful ways to express how one feels, the best way to ever do it is through written word. Nothing can express a feeling or a sentiment in a more effable manner than writing down your feelings for someone you really love and care for. And guess what, it's that month of the year where love is free flowing and feelings are exuberant and more malleable than ever. It's the month of love and we're going to celebrate it with you, just as much as you'd love to celebrate it with your loved one! Let's these stories be a journey and a learning for you, as you experiences through them how love still keeps people alive!
  14. LONDON: The wreckage of an Iranian plane that crashed with 65 people on board was found in central Iran, state media said on Monday, but aviation authorities could not confirm the report. The Aseman Airlines flight from Tehran disappeared from radar screens on Sunday 50 minutes into its journey to the southwestern city of Yasuj. It is believed to have gone down in a mountainous area near the town of Semirom. No one is expected to have survived. The deputy governor of Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad province was quoted by state media as saying the wreckage was found near Dengezlu city, in Semirom county, in Isfahan province. A few minutes later, Iran?s Civil Aviation Organisation said it could not confirm the wreckage had been discovered. ?We are facing a total enigma. We do not know anything about the crash,? Iran?s Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency shortly after his arrival in Semirom. Iran asked European countries and China to help the search with satellite imagery, Iranian Space Agency deputy head Mojtaba Saradeghi was quoted as saying by ISNA news agency. A member of the Red Crescent rescue team was quoted as saying by ISNA news agency that ?a dark spot? had been seen near Dengezlu village that ?might be a trace to the crashed plane?. ISNA did not elaborate. Glacial temperatures Glacial temperatures and mountainous terrain hampered rescue teams. Helicopters and mountain rescue personnel from the armed forces and the Red Crescent, as well as local volunteers, were involved in the search, state television reported ?Five units started the search operation in the early hours of the morning, in -16 degrees,? a local Red Crescent official was quoted as saying by IRNA news agency, reporting minus 16 degrees Celsius or 3.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Military reconnaissance drones were also searching the area. The twin-engined turboprop ATR 72 was just over 24 years old. According to data cited by the Flight Safety Foundation?s aviation-safety.net website, it had been restored to service just three months ago after being in storage for six years.
  15. Image Courtesy: BBC LONDON: Former soccer coach Barry Bennell was found guilty of multiple sexual offences against boys in the 1980s, British media reported on Tuesday. The 64-year-old, who was once a talent spotter at Crewe Alexandra and a coach at Manchester City, was convicted of 36 charges including rape and indecent assault by a jury at Liverpool Crown Court. The BBC reported the jury had failed to reach verdicts on seven counts and would continue discussions on Wednesday. It said the judge directed them to find Bennell not guilty on three other counts. Bennell was charged in November 2016 after prosecutors received a file of evidence from Cheshire Police, the force in charge of the area of northwest England where Crewe Alexandra are based. Bennell, who had denied 48 alleged offences between 1979 and 1990 relating to 11 complainants, chose not to give evidence in his defence during the month-long trial and appeared by video link from prison due to illness. He had pleaded guilty before the trial started to seven counts of indecent assault involving three boys. Allegations of child *** abuse in English soccer from the 1970s through to the 1990s have shocked Britain and led to deep soul-searching in the game amid fears hundreds of young boys might have been involved.

  17. You must have heard about a lot of people who've had success with dating apps like Tinder. But it's rare that we see people finding their soulmate on Twitter. The first question that pops up is 'How much can you convey in 140 characters anyway?' Turns out, a lot. So it started in 2014 when Torey Stachowicz, who was a site merchandising manager at American Greetings and a personal trainer in her spare time, decided to give her a love life a long shot by asking a man out on Twitter. In what would have seemed like a random tweet, she wrote that she wants to go on a date with Ben Axelrod. I want to go on a date with @BenAxelrod — Torey Stachowicz (@toreydanae) December 4, 2014 Her move, though extremely bold, bore fruit almost instantly when Ben, who is a digital producer and sportswriter, replied to her tweet asking her if she would pay for the date. @toreydanae you buying? — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) December 4, 2014 What followed was a series of tweets that will make you think, 'Why didn't I ever try dating on Twitter?' She replied saying that she would pay for the food at his favourite place. “@BenAxelrod: @toreydanae you buying?” Haha yes I will, your favorite place too — Torey Stachowicz (@toreydanae) December 4, 2014 However, Ben didn't care about the place. He only cared about chicken fingers. After all, priorities. @toreydanae nah, if you're buying, you can pick. Just make sure they have chicken fingers. — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) December 4, 2014 And just like that, it was done. @BenAxelrod done and done — Torey Stachowicz (@toreydanae) December 4, 2014 Their Twitter romance gained a lot of attention at the time, but soon after, it was forgotten. Who can keep track of a social media romance anyway? However, these two proved that they weren't just any other random couple who would hook up once and then move on. They stuck with each other for over 3 years when Ben decided it's time to pop the big question. And what better way than asking it on Twitter? Linking back to Torey's 2014 tweet, Ben confessed that he now wants to marry her. I want to marry @toreydanae https://t.co/gJxNBqyTNY — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) February 11, 2018 And that was followed by an adorable picture of the two, with Ben proposing to Torey. On his knees, of course! I bent the knee. She said yes! pic.twitter.com/nVwPHtpxOx — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) February 11, 2018 She obviously said yes and within a day, their engagement announcement went viral across the internet. And twitterati is always here for such social media romances. 1. Turns Out, Parents Can Be Wrong Sometimes. Oh wow congratulations! My parents told me to never ask a guy out for a date!

  18. A British Airways plane on the runway at London City Airport/File photo LONDON: London City Airport announced its closure on Sunday after a World War Two bomb was discovered in the nearby River Thames. The ordnance was discovered in King George V Dock, close to the runway of London´s most central airport, during planned works. "A 214m (234-yard) exclusion zone has been implemented as a precaution by the Met Police. As a result, London City Airport is currently closed," the airport said in a statement. Travellers were told to avoid the airport: "All passengers due to travel from London City on Monday are advised to contact their airline for further information." City Airport operates short-haul flights and is located in east London, close to the Canary Wharf business district. The Metropolitan Police said the discovery was reported before dawn on Sunday, at around 0500 GMT, and the exclusion zone was put in place at 2200 GMT. The decision was taken "to ensure that the ordnance can be safely dealt with whilst limiting any risk to the public," police said in a statement. The unexploded ordnance is being dealt with by specialist police officers working alongside the Royal Navy. Thousands of bombs were dropped on London during the "Blitz" by German Air Forces between September 1940 and May 1941.
  19. As my phone buzzed with a notification from a dating app, telling me someone had 'liked' me, my eyes lit up. The narcissist joy of being liked by someone of the opposite gender is exhilarating. The idea of a special someone who is out there looking at your pictures and sending you romantic messages is one that can set your heart racing. A large part of our twenties is spent in looking for that special someone. We may fool around to our hearts' fill, but at the end of the day we're all looking for the ONE. © Pexels Love is a magical feeling – one that can seemingly transform your life and the way you feel about things. You may be happily single right now but the idea of falling in love with your true soulmate is one against which there is never any resistance. And why not? Life can get infinitely better with the companionship of someone who understands and loves you. And yet many of us fall short of finding that perfect companionship. You do everything right; you give them time, you give them space, you give them love – and yet love seems to always evade you. The more you want a relationship, the more it evades you. The more you crave for someone's loving touch, the more you find yourself curling up alone in bed on a wintry night. That's the thing – love comes to you when you're not looking. Like me, you must have heard this a hundred times before, but like me, you too probably never thought about the many layers of meaning this simple sentence holds. © Thinkstock/Getty Images At the time of writing this article, I was sceptical if I was even dealing with something that hadn't often been said. Oh they say, you must be happy before you meet someone else, all right. That's simple – except that it wasn't. You are a happy individual and yet none of your relationships seems to work out. You know why? Even though you're happy, you are afraid of ending up alone. That is the one thing which prevents us from finding true love – the fear of being left alone. It's a fear that prevents us from making the right choice, from walking out when it doesn't feel right, from waiting for the right person. We're not okay with the idea of spending all our lives alone – if we don't find a soulmate till 30, we're doomed, we tell ourselves. Experts say this one fear is the biggest hurdle in our path to finding true love. Till we become absolutely okay with the idea of spending our lives alone, we cannot fully choose someone based on compatibility alone. The lurching fear and insecurity of ending up alone, when all our friends will be happily married and enjoying life with their spouses, often makes us act against our better sense. But it is easier said than done. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Not only will this deep-seated insecurity blur your decision to settle down with someone, it will also not let you walk out of an unsatisfactory relationship. You will see the red flags, you will see the love fade away, you will find yourself withdrawing – but you will hold on, because it is too late now. You have no time and emotion left for anyone else, you tell yourself. Your heart can't love again. If you let go this, you know you will end up alone for the next few years at least or maybe forever, and that image is scary. Without us even realising, this fear dictates our lives. The assumption that you can't be happy alone is a dangerous premise to enter a relationship. Wanting companionship is our most natural need as humans, but it is also one that makes us compromise on love. It is our superpower as well as our kryptonite. © Thinkstock/Getty Images The idea of falling in love with someone is often so tempting that we fall in love with the idea more than the person. Sometimes, it's just the feeling of a warm body cuddling next to you on a cold gloomy night that we want. Sometimes, it's just the assurance of someone's hands wrapped around you, telling you you're not alone. But sadly, that's not always love. When the heady rush of new love fades, the ugly corners of our desperate needs surface and you realise there's a stranger in your bedroom. Now you're unhappily committed. Unfortunately enough, your partner might feel the same. © Pexels The problem is not ours alone. As a society, we have been taught that finding a companion is one of the two major goals of life – the other cracking IIT-JEE. While Sharmaji had us believe scoring 90% would guarantee us a successful life, Shah Rukh had us believe finding the love of your life would make it complete. In our movies, the idea of being alone is relegated to the problem characters, the villain and the perpetually unlucky in love. Even the third wheel is conveniently matched with a random minor character, just so everyone goes home happy. If not, rejected lover has to die. Jimmy Shergill's character in 'Tanu Weds Manu' is the quintessential rejected lover, alive but subject of eternal sympathy. So horribly scared are we of being left alone in the world that even our fictional characters are committed by the end of a film. © Thinkstock/Getty Images And god forbid once you cross 25, every neighbourhood aunty and uncle will remind you of the impending catastrophe you're heading towards by being single. “Tees ke baad ladke nahi milenge tumhe.” No matter what our Tinder bio says, eventually we all move into the Shaadi.com mode. Because that's the logical step in ensuring you don't end up alone. To be able to find the one who deserves you, you need to be okay with the idea of not finding him/her ever. It's a self-defeating almost impossible thought to come to terms with. But when you make peace with the fact that you are sufficient enough to live all by yourself in this big beautiful world, can you truly make a choice.
  20. Bangladesh opposition leader Khaleda Zia. Photo: File DHAKA: A court in Bangladesh sentenced opposition leader Khaleda Zia to five years in jail on Thursday after convicting the two-time former premier of embezzling money meant for an orphanage. Prosecutors were seeking life imprisonment for Zia ? a two-time former prime minister and head of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party ? for allegedly embezzling 21 million taka ($252,000) through a charity trust fund. With the guilty verdict, Zia, a former ally turned arch-nemesis of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, will no longer be able to contest the general election slated for December. Police had banned street protests and rounded up what opposition figures said was thousands of their supporters in a crackdown ahead of Thursday's court ruling in the capital, Dhaka.

  25. LONDON: A British man who grew "obsessed" with Muslims was found guilty on Thursday of murder and attempted murder after deliberately driving into a group of people outside a London mosque. Jurors found Darren Osborne, 48, from the Welsh capital Cardiff, guilty of murdering 51-year-old Makram Ali and trying to kill others in the Finsbury Park area of north London on June 19. Unemployed "loner" Osborne had pleaded not guilty, telling London's Woolwich Crown Court that a man called "Dave" had taken his place in the driver's seat of his van minutes before the attack. But witnesses recalled Osborne saying, "I've done my job, you can kill me now" and "at least I had a proper go" to members of the public in the immediate aftermath of the attack. The jury of eight women and four men took one hour to convict the father-of-four, whose obsession with Muslims began a month before the attack after watching a BBC drama "Three Girls", which told the story of a child *** abuse ring in northern England. A handwritten note found in the van with Osborne's fingerprints on it read: "terrorists on our streets. "Don't people get it? This is happening up and down our green and pleasant land. The Crown Prosecution Service said Osborne "planned and carried out this attack because of his hatred of Muslims". "He later invented an unconvincing story to counter the overwhelming weight of evidence but the jury has convicted him," said Sue Hemming from the state prosecutors. "We have been clear throughout that this was a terrorist attack, and he must now face the consequences of his actions." He will be sentenced at a later date.
