  1. This picture of Shahid Afridi with an Indian fan during Ice Cricket tournament in Switzerland went viral, after Afridi told her not to fold away the Indian flag, earning praise both sides of the border Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has called for cricket to be used as a tool to improve relations between India and Pakistan and for politics to be kept away from sports. Cricket has been a victim of the tense relations between the two neighbouring countries, who have not played a full bilateral series since 2007. ?Due to lack of international cricket between the two countries, we now play either in the ICC tournaments or the events such as Ice Cricket,? Afridi told Wisden India, as he shared his recent experience of playing alongside Indian cricketers in an exhibition tournament in Switzerland. ?I believe politics should be kept away from sports. It should rather be used as a tool to improve relations between the countries. Sport is something which can play a big role in bringing peace,? he stressed. Afridi captained the Royals in a two-match T20 series which was played in sub-zero temperatures in the Swiss Alps. Among the stars who featured in the tournament were Shoaib Akhtar, Abdul Razzaq, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, and Ajit Agarkar. ?It was nice to meet and play with players from India after a long time,? Afridi reminisced. ?That was something very positive about the tournament and I think it should continue. Both countries should also be playing international cricket against each other.? Apart from a short limited-overs series in India in 2012-13, Pakistan and India have not met outside of World Cups, World T20s or Asia Cups. Afridi, who continues to be in blistering form in T20 cricket, said he is focused on the upcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League, which starts in Dubai from February 22. ?I have started to practice for the PSL. I have reduced my other activities and am focusing more on the PSL. Hopefully, the upcoming season will be good for me,? said the all-rounder, who will be in action for Karachi Kings for the first time. The PSL action will return to Pakistan towards the end of the tournament, with Lahore set to host two playoffs and Karachi ready to hold the final. ?The situation in Pakistan is much better now,? said Afridi. ?It?s good to know that cricket is returning to Pakistan. This year, there will be two playoffs in Lahore and then the final in Karachi. It?s going to be a huge moment for the people of Karachi. It?s a positive sign and message to the world.?
  2. During his playing days, Virender Sehwag was undeniably a force to be reckoned with. His unorthodox batting technique allowed him to hammer the opposition bowlers all around the park. And, even after calling time on his career, Sehwag continues to be a dominant force on social media with his wit and humour. But, while he may have retired from international cricket, Sehwag clearly hasn't forgotten the art of batting. His genius with the willow was once again on full display during the unique Ice Cricket tournament in Switzerland. Taking on Shahid Afridi-led Royals XI, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' turned back the clock and took the fans to his yesteryears where he once reigned supreme. Despite the bone-chilling conditions in the backdrop of breathtaking Alpine range in the resort town of St Moritz, the 39-year-old created a unique record of scoring the first four and six of the first of its kind tournament. And, if that wasn't enough, Sehwag went on to etch his name in the history books as the first-ever cricketer to score a fifty in the Ice Cricket tournament. There was a reason why 90's people used to say - "Sehwag ki batting dekh kar chalte hain" @virendersehwag ðªðª#IceCricket pic.twitter.com/i1j41KezwD — Prashant Pareek (@prashan235) February 8, 2018 After deciding to bat first, Palace Diamonds got off to a roaring start, following a flabbergasting rendition of masterful strokeplay by their captain Sehwag who smashed a 31-ball 62 including four majestic fours and five towering sixes. In the end, it was his old nemesis Shoaib Akhtar who put an end to Sehwag's blazing innings. Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice. pic.twitter.com/V1bjFATGnI — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) February 8, 2018 Following his outing in temperatures below zero degrees, Sehwag took to Twitter and posted a brilliant one-liner about his knock. "Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice," he tweeted. @virendersehwag .. kya baat kaha Viru... — Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) February 8, 2018 The post garnered a massive response from the fans and it even evoked a response from Sourav Ganguly. Impressed with Viru's comment, Ganguly replied: "kya baat kaha Viru". Here's what the twitterverse had to say after witnessing Sehwag back in action: Kya baat hai Paji..sher toh sher hai.

  3. Shahid Afridi Royals vs Virender Sehwag Diamonds ll Cricket On Ice 1st Match Full Highlights
  4. When Padmaavat's 'Ghoomar' was dropped, it managed to make waves across the nation within hours. A small glimpse at a controversial movie was just what we needed and Ghoomar was just right for the purpose. Let's not even get into the CGI debacle, because no one cares about that right now. Several records were broken when the song was released, as it garnered millions of views and the release of the movie did the same. Sanjay Leela Bhansali and the cast are definitely on cloud nine with the kind of response the film is getting across the world. And to add to that, the increasing number of performances on Ghoomar that are taking place globally is blowing us away. The latest addition to that list is Mayuri Bhandari's performance. A post shared by Mayuri Bhandari (@mayuribhandariofficial) on Jul 31, 2017 at 12:44pm PDT Mayuri, who is a figure-skater and a dancer recently uploaded a video of herself dancing to the tunes of 'Ghoomar' and the video went viral for all the right reasons. You see, it isn't just another dance video to the hit song. It's the perfect combination of figure-skating and dancing on ice. And the woman does it with such ease and brilliance that you won't even want to blink. She first uploaded a boomerang on her Instagram back in December to tease us all. My camera may be pixely, and the ice may be flimsy, but I don't go easy, and I'm still not queasy! ðâ¸â #backontheice #figureskating #ghoomar A post shared by Mayuri Bhandari (@mayuribhandariofficial) on Dec 2, 2017 at 9:21pm PST And finally, just a day after the release of the movie, she uploaded the video on YouTube with the description, “In honor of the film Padmaavat's release, here is my ice skating tribute to the beautiful song Ghoomar! As a Rajasthani, I skate to this song with pride!” Have a look at her mesmerizing performance: Honestly, we didn't want the video to end. These are the kind of tributes we would to like to see more of. Team 'Padmaavat', are you watching this?
  5. A woman walks past a TV broadcasting a news report on a high-level talks between the two Koreas at the truce village of Panmunjom, in Seoul, South Korea, January 9, 2018. Photo: REUTERS 1 SEOUL: North and South Korea kicked off their first formal talks in more than two years on Tuesday, with both sides expressing optimism ahead of discussions on how the North?s athletes can attend the Winter Olympics in the South despite tensions. Regardless of its narrow, primarily sporting agenda, the meeting is being closely watched by world leaders eager for any sign of a reduction in tensions on the Korean peninsula amid rising fears over North Korea?s development of nuclear weapons and defiance of United Nations Security Council resolutions. ?We came to this meeting today with the thought of giving our brethren, who have high hopes for this dialogue, invaluable results as the first present of the year...,? said head of North Korea?s delegation Ri Son Gwon. North Korea entered the talks with a ?serious and sincere stance?, said Ri, chairman of the North?s Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland. His counterpart, South Korea?s Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, also expressed optimism. ?Our talks began after North and South Korea were severed for a long time, but I believe the first step is half the trip,? said Cho. ?It would be good for us to make that ?good present? you mentioned earlier.? The two sides are discussing North Korea?s participation in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and the Paralympics as well as the improvement of inter-Korean relations. Cho has said his delegation is also preparing to discuss resuming reunions of family members separated by the Korean War, which ended in a ceasefire and technically left the two Koreas still at war. Some South Korean officials are hoping the two Koreas may even march under a single flag at the Winter Games, which would be the first time in more than a decade that the two Koreas united under one flag at a sporting event opening. Pointing to his briefcase before departing for the border, Cho smiled and said, ?I have a bit of luggage,? adding, ?Everything feels slightly new as we have not had talks in a while?. Just before the delegation drove into the demilitarised zone some 20 South Koreans were seen waving a banner reading: ?We wish the success of the high-ranking inter-Korean talks?. One man was spotted waving a flag with a unified Korean peninsula. Five senior officials from each side met at the three-storey Peace House on the South Korean side of the Panmunjom truce village from 10AM. The North Korean delegation walked over the border inside the joint security area (JSA) to the Peace House around 0030 GMT, a Unification Ministry official told reporters. Cameras and microphones are usually placed in the room to ensure that officials from both sides can monitor the talks. The United States, which has 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea as a legacy of the 1950-1953 Korean War, initially responded coolly to the idea of inter-Korean meetings. ?A GOOD THING? The State Department had said Pyongyang ?might be trying to drive a wedge? between Washington and Seoul and weaken a US-led campaign to force North Korea to give up its development of nuclear-tipped missiles capable of hitting the United States. US President Donald Trump spent much of the past year deriding negotiations as useless and lobbing insults at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but recently Trump called the new talks ?a good thing? and said they had been prompted by his ?firm, strong? stance. Trump has said he would like to see talks go beyond the Olympics and added: ?At the appropriate time, we?ll get involved.? A spokeswoman for the US State Department, Katina Adams, did not respond directly when asked about suggestions from some South Korean officials that the two Koreas could march under a single flag at the Olympic opening ceremony and even compete as a single nation in some events, but said: ?We are in close contact with the Republic of Korea about our unified response to North Korea, including the need to maintain pressure to achieve a denuclearised Korean Peninsula. ?Diplomatic options remain viable and open and the United States remains committed to finding a peaceful path to denuclearising the Korean Peninsula.? At the same time, Adams said Washington remained ?clear-eyed about (North Korea?s) track record when it comes to negotiations? and added: ?Time will tell if this is a genuine gesture.?
  6. A South Korean soldier stands guard at a checkpoint on the Grand Unification Bridge that leads to the truce village of Panmunjom ? just south of the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas ? in Paju, South Korea, January 9, 2018. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji SEOUL: North and South Korea will hold their first formal talks for more than two years on Tuesday, brought together by sport to discuss how the North?s athletes can attend next month?s Winter Olympics in the South despite simmering fears of conflict. Regardless of its narrow, primarily sporting agenda, the meeting will be closely watched by world leaders eager for any sign of a reduction in tensions on the Korean peninsula amid rising fears over North Korea?s development of nuclear weapons and defiance of United Nations Security Council resolutions. ?The talks will focus on North Korea?s participation in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and our preparations have centered around some requests made by the North for a peaceful Olympic Games,? Unification Ministry spokesman Baek Tae-hyun told a media conference on Monday. Some South Korean officials are hoping the two Koreas may even march under a single flag at a sports opening ceremony for the first time in more than a decade. Five senior officials from each side will meet at the three-storey Peace House on the South Korean side of the Panmunjom truce village, with talks to begin at 10 a.m. (0100 GMT). As previously, cameras and microphones will be placed in the room to ensure that officials from both sides can monitor the talks as they happen. The United States, which has 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea as a legacy of the 1950-1953 Korean War, initially responded coolly to the idea of inter-Korean meetings. The State Department had said Pyongyang ?might be trying to drive a wedge? between Washington and Seoul and weaken a U.S.-led campaign to force North Korea to give up its development of nuclear-tipped missiles capable of hitting the United States. U.S. President Donald Trump spent much of the past year deriding negotiations as useless and lobbing insults at North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But on Thursday, Trump called the new talks ?a good thing? and said they had been prompted by his ?firm, strong? stance, which has included harsher international sanctions and threats of military intervention if the North does not give up its weapons program. On Saturday, Trump said he was ?100 percent? behind the talks and hoped for positive developments. He also said he would ?absolutely? be willing to talk on the phone to Kim. ?Look, right now they?re talking Olympics. It?s a start, it?s a big start,? he said. ?If something can happen and something comes out of those talks, that would be a great thing for all of humanity, that would be a great thing for the world,? he said. Trump said he would like to see talks go beyond the Olympics and added: ?At the appropriate time, we?ll get involved.? A spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, Katina Adams, did not respond directly when asked about suggestions from some South Korean officials that the two Koreas could march under a single flag at the Olympic opening ceremony and even compete as a single nation in some events, but said: ?We are in close contact with the Republic of Korea about our unified response to North Korea, including the need to maintain pressure to achieve a denuclearized Korean Peninsula. ?Diplomatic options remain viable and open and the United States remains committed to finding a peaceful path to denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.? At the same time, Adams said, Washington remained ?clear-eyed about (North Korea?s) track record when it comes to negotiations? and added: ?Time will tell if this is a genuine gesture.? U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reiterated last week that any future talks between the United States and North Korea must be aimed at denuclearization and warned that diplomatic efforts were backed by a strong military option if necessary. South Korea?s President Moon Jae-in persuaded the United States to delay joint military exercises until after the Olympics in a bid to reduce tensions and possibly create room for diplomacy. The talks come after North Korea?s Kim used his New Year?s Day speech to announce he was open to sending a delegation to the Olympics as well as reducing tensions on the Korean peninsula, while vowing to never give up his nuclear weapons program. Baek said other issues aimed at boosting cooperation between the two Koreas will be discussed. Unification Minister Cho Myong-gyon has said his delegation has been preparing to discuss resuming reunions of family members separated by the 1950-1953 Korean War. That conflict ended in a ceasefire and technically the two sides remain at war. North Korea?s delegation will be led by Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the North?s Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland. Committee vice chairman Jon Song Su and Hwang Chung Song, a director, will join Ri. Ri, the committee chairman who was promoted to his current position in June 2016, is a seasoned negotiator for inter-Korean talks although his previous experience has mostly been military-related due to his career in the armed forces.
  7. Washington state's attorney general Bob Ferguson (C) speaks to the media next to Washington state solicitor-general Noah Purcell (R) outside the US federal courthouse in downtown Seattle, US, February 3, 2017. REUTERS/Dan Levine/Files Motel 6 was sued on Wednesday by Washington state?s attorney general, who accused the discount hotel chain of illegally providing guest lists to US immigration authorities, knowing of their interest in people with ?Latino-sounding? names. Attorney General Bob Ferguson said six Motel 6 locations in Washington provided names, birth dates, license plates, and other personal information belonging to at least 9,151 guests to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from June 2015 to May 2017. Ferguson said Motel 6 knew ICE used guest lists to target people based on their national origin, and that the disclosures led to detentions of at least six people. Motel 6 is controlled by private equity firm Blackstone Group LP, which bought the brand in 2012. G6 Hospitality ? the chain?s management company ? said it ordered its more than 1,400 US and Canadian locations in September to stop voluntarily giving guest lists to ICE agents. ?Motel 6 takes this matter very seriously, and we have and will continue to fully cooperate with the Office of the State Attorney General,? G6 said in a statement on Wednesday. Ferguson said Motel 6?s practices in Washington mirrored those in Arizona, citing a Phoenix New Times report ? from September 13, 2017 ? that ICE had arrested 20 people at Motel 6s there from February to August after getting similar tips. He also said Motel 6 trained new employees to cooperate with ICE agents, despite a company policy of ?safeguarding the privacy of the personal information that we gather?. The lawsuit filed with the King County Superior Court in Seattle seeks an injunction against similar conduct and civil fines of up to $2,000 per violation of state consumer protection and anti-discrimination laws. ?Motel 6 implied this was a local problem,? Ferguson ? a Democrat ? said in a statement. ?We have found that is not true.?
  8. German police secure the main train station in Munich, Germany, January 1, 2016. REUTERS/Michaela Rehle/Files BERLIN: German police arrested a 29-year-old man they said was an active member of Daesh who was plotting a truck attack on an ice rink. The arrest comes a year after Anis Amri ? a failed Tunisian asylum seeker with extremist links ? hijacked a truck and drove it into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people. The detention comes amid security services' warning of growing numbers of radical extremists in Germany. ?He was considering an attack on the ice rink on the Schlossplatz in Karlsruhe,? police in the south-western state of Baden-Wuerttemberg said, adding that the suspect was a German citizen whose name they gave only as Dasbar W. ?To that end, he was assessing areas around Karlsruhe Castle and, from September 2017, had begun seeking employment as a delivery driver ? without success,? the police statement said. In 2015, the suspect travelled to Iraq to fight for Daesh, receiving weapons training and working as a scout seeking potential attack targets in the city of Erbil, police said. He returned to Germany the following year. Before leaving for Iraq, Dasbar worked for Daesh from Germany, producing propaganda videos and proselytizing to converts in online chat rooms, police said. Earlier this month, Germany?s security service warned that the number of followers of a radical extremist ideology had risen to an all-time high of 10,800, though the number prepared to mount attacks was in the order of hundreds.
  9. 'Titanic' was an iconic movie, the memories of which are still fresh in our minds even after 20 years of its release. While, we thoroughly enjoyed the budding romance between Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater, by the end of the movie many people started feeling sorry for Jack and started hating or pitying Rose. “How can you be so selfish and heartless, Rose? How can you let your lover Jack, the one you saved from the evil hands of Caledon Hockley, drown in the icy cold water?” These phrased echo to this very day, as that heartbreaking scene became a masterpiece with people idolizing Jack as the epitome of true love, who gave up his life to save Rose. The world cried buckets and filled the already sinking ship with their tears, when they saw Jack's dead body sink into the black depths of the Atlantic. Their hearts cursed Rose for not letting him take shelter on that big f**king door she was holding on to, watching him sink in the bed of ocean. Honestly, it was only after we watched 'Game of Thrones' season 6 that we realised that this was the second most brutal death where a door was involved. The first being Hodor. Was that wooden plank really small for two people? Over these years, we all have wondered and criticized poor Rose for Jack not fitting on the plank. Some 'Titanic' fans went up to the extent where they came up with their own theories and mathematical calculations to prove that there was enough space for two people to fit in. © Wikimedia Now, finally after 20 years, Director James Cameron has revealed the real reason behind Jack's death and the answer is not lack of space or Hypothermia as many people argue. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Cameron was asked the question that has haunted people for the longest time now, “Why doesn't Rose make room for Jack on the door?” Honestly, we were expecting some logic-based reasoning behind this, but his answer left us dumbfound. He said, “And the answer is very simple because it says on page 147 (of the script) that Jack dies. Very simple…” Well, it does make sense but he did go on to explain why he let Jack die. © Pinterest He even mentioned about how people are still discussing this after so many years, “I think it's all kind of silly, really, that we're having this discussing 20 years later.” He further added, “But it does show that the film was effective in making Jack so endearing to the audience that it hurts them to see him die.” He explained that had the character of Jack lived, the ending would have been meaningless since the film was about death and separation. “It's called art, things happen for artistic reasons, not for physics reasons,” he further added. So all you folks who are still calculating the measurement of that door to prove that he could have fit in, you all can go home now. Jack was so shocked by his death in 'Titanic' that in his afterlife, he chose to go the YOLO way by first indulging in alcohol and being a womanizer in 'Wolf of The Wall Street' and then later fighting a wild bear in 'The Revenant'.
  10. We have all seen videos of a Turkish ice cream seller tricking customers. The act is so popular that it is one of the top things tourists want to do when they visit Turkey. It seems Pakistani actress Mahira Khan is no different as she shared a video on her Instagram account of just this happening. The video was taken during an earlier trip the actress took. Mahira is playing the lead role in the upcoming movie Verna and has been promoting the movie on her Instagram account.
  11. ASHGABAT: Reclusive Turkmenistan hailed on Tuesday its first shipment of ice cream to China as the crisis-stricken Central Asian country seeks to diversify its exports beyond hydrocarbons. Ata Bayramov, a representative of state-endorsed Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, said a private company, Taze Ay, had dispatched over six tonnes of ice cream to China, which is also Turkmenistan's leading purchaser of natural gas. "This is a trial party designed to test the ground for further cooperation," Bayramov told AFP. If the trial delivery is successful, "the company plans to increase supplies and the number of assortments," he added. According to Turkmenistan's state statistics committee, the tightly-controlled republic does not presently export any other food products to China. Strongman leader Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov has implored businesses to add diversity to an economy where hydrocarbons equal more than 90 per cent of exports. A growing economic crisis in Turkmenistan has seen the government slice nearly a fifth off the value of its manat currency in 2015 while slashing subsidies that made water, electricity and gas effectively free earlier this month. Downward pressure on energy prices in recent years and the collapse of a long-term contract to supply natural gas to the Russian market last year has increased Turkmenistan's dependence on Chinese demand. Turkmenistan sits on the world's fourth largest reserves of natural gas in the world.
  12. ISLAMABAD: The Airport Security Force (ASF) foiled a bid to smuggle one kilogram of ice heroin at Benazir Bhutto International Airport on Thursday. Security forces recovered the contraband found hidden inside a passenger?s luggage. The passenger was headed to Saudi Arabia.
  13. After the heartbreak from the 6th episode of ‘Game of Thrones' which takes the life of Viserion, Dany's beloved dragon, we are desperately wishing for a miracle. The dragon didn't need to die so soon and we are totally blaming Jon and Daenerys. But if fan theories are to be trusted, there's a silver lining in the clouds. So ‘Beyond The Wall' ends with the Night King transforming the dragon into one of his own, and the fiery red in Viserion's eyes is replaced with an icy blue. The scene sent shivers down the spine as we mentally cursed Daenerys for flying to Jon's rescue. But the latest of fan theories suggests that the situation is not as bleak as it looks. If you recall the oft-quoted prophecy about the three-headed dragon that was interpreted to mean there would be three riders for each of Daenerys' 3 dragons. Besides her, Tyrion and Jon Snow have been the only 2 other characters who have shown affinity for the dragons. But with Viserion's death, the prophecy seems to stand incomplete. Not if you consider the fact that all the Stark children have an ability to warg into animals. Besides Bran, Arya and Jon have been shown to be able to have a telepathic connection with their respective direwolves, Nymeria and Ghost. It is believed that both Arya and Jon are capable of warging, just that they are not completely aware of it. And thus, Jon will be seen warging into Viserion and controlling the ice dragon even though it is the Night King who resurrected him. For that matter, even Bran could control the ice dragon if it comes to that. That's a legit thought. Jon does represent ice. Maybe the ice dragon was for him, after all. it's symbolic that viserion died and turned into the ice dragon because viserys wasn't a dragon, but jon snow is and jon represents ice — ã¤lou (@poetrynico) August 24, 2017 Explains the sword opening its eyes then Jon Snow was reborn when he emerged from the icy water like how dani did with fire so I believe that he'll gain control of the ICE DRAGON — sonia (@sxniagarcia) August 23, 2017 Dragons can smell Targaryen blood Jon Snow will ride the ice dragon. How else did he survive that fall into the ice? Reminds me of Deanerys when she was set to fire. — FeaR Moho (@FeaRMoho) August 24, 2017 If Daenerys is the fire queen, Jon Snow is the ice king.
  14. It has started. Global warming has begun to change the face of the earth. A massive iceberg has broken off an ice shelf in Antarctica. The trillion-ton iceberg that is the size of a small country was reported to have been ‘hanging by a thread' from the Larsen ice shelf in Antarctica last month and now it has broken away completely. © Reuters (Image for representational purpose only) The iceberg is roughly 5,400 sq km – that's roughly 4 times the size of Delhi. According to scientists, the iceberg will eventually break into smaller fragments adrift the Antarctic Ocean. Scientists also say that the event is not likely to cause a change in the sea level. Of course, it'd take more than that to do so. © Reuters “Although this is a natural event, and we're not aware of any link to human-induced climate change, this puts the ice shelf in a very vulnerable position,” The Verge quoted Dr. Martin O'Leary, glaciologist and member of MIDAS, which is a UK-based research project on Antarctica. The iceberg is one of the largest icebergs to have broken off an ice shelf in Antartica; the largest being the B-15 iceberg that calved off from the Ross ice shelf in 2000, and was twice as big as this one. It has happened: #LarsenC ice shelf, one of the largest icerbergs ever recorded, has broken off Antarctica https://t.co/PNPnGxNzh3 pic.twitter.com/1wOH8y5PEl — Massimo (@Rainmaker1973) July 12, 2017 Looks scary when you look at the satellite images .@NASA satellites see massive iceberg break off from #Antarctica. #LarsenC loses chunk the size of Delaware. https://t.co/6IMr29s8By pic.twitter.com/8EZMG395Nz — NASA Earth (@NASAEarth) July 12, 2017 The breaking off of the iceberg poses no immediate threat to sea levels, yes, but it remains to be seen what happens to the Larsen ice shelf now. It could disintegrate further owing to its unstable condition now or it could see ice reforming again.
  15. The crack in the Larsen C ice shelf that resulted in the new iceberg/John Sonntag, NASA via earthobservatory.nasa.gov PARIS: A trillion-tonne iceberg, one of the largest ever recorded, has snapped off the West Antarctic ice shelf, scientists who have monitored the growing crack for years said on Wednesday. "The calving occurred sometime between Monday, July 10 and Wednesday, July 12, when a 5,800-square kilometre (2,200-square mile) section of Larsen C (ice shelf) finally broke away," the Swansea University said in a statement. The massive ice cube, larger than the US state of Delaware, has a volume twice that of Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes. It is about 350 metres (1,100 feet) thick. "The iceberg weighs more than a trillion tonnes, but it was already floating before it calved away so has no immediate impact on sea level," the team said. It will likely be named A68. With the calving, the Larsen C ice shelf lost more than 12 percent of its total surface area. Icebergs calving from Antarctica are a regular occurrence. But given its enormous size, the latest berg will be closely watched as it travels, for any potential risk to shipping traffic. The calving may have heightened the risk of the remaining ice shelf disintegrating, the Swansea team said. Ice shelves float on the sea, extending from the coast, and are fed by slow-flowing glaciers from the land. They act as giant brakes, preventing glaciers from flowing directly into the ocean. If the glaciers held in check by Larsen C spilt into the Antarctic Ocean, it would lift the global water mark by about 10 centimetres (four inches), researchers have said. The calving of ice shelves occurs naturally, though global warming is believed to have accelerated the process. Warmer ocean water erodes the underbelly of the ice shelves, while rising air temperatures weaken them from above. The nearby Larsen A ice shelf collapsed in 1995, and Larsen B dramatically broke up seven years later. The final break was detected by a NASA satellite. "We will continue to monitor both the impact of this calving event on the Larsen C ice shelf and the fate of this huge iceberg," said lead investigator Adrian Luckman of the university´s MIDAS project. The fate of the berg is hard to predict. It may stay in one piece, but could also break into fragments. "Some of the ice may remain in the area for decades, while parts of the iceberg may drift north into warmer waters," said Luckman. The team said the calving at the iceberg cannot be directly placed at the door of global warming, describing it as a "natural event". Human actions have lifted average global air temperatures by about one degree Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit) since pre-industrial levels, according to scientists. Antarctica is one of the world´s fastest-warming regions.
  16. What do you think of when we say, Canada? Maple syrup? Moose? Mooses? Meese? (Whatever they are called) Ice hockey? Maybe Justin Trudeau? But, one thing you certainly wouldn't think about is their special forces. Why does Canada even have an army, some might ask. They are a peaceful bunch. It's not like they are constantly in the limelight, like their southern neighbours, when it comes to war. You should know that Canada plays an active part in the war on ISIS and today, one Canadian soldier just shattered a world record. While it may not be fit to discuss world records when it comes to something as atrocious as war, the fact remains that a Canadian elite Special Forces member recently shot down an ISIS insurgent from 3,540 metres away. Thinkstock Photos The Sniper-Observer team were part of a JTF2 (Joint Task Force 2) team who are in Northern Iraq to help with sniper operations, hostage rescue, and counter-terrorism. Canadian commandos do not get involved in direct combat in Iraq since they aren't part of the Multi-National Force which consists of US, UK, Spain, Poland, and Australia's military. The skills required to take down an insurgent from this distance include math, great eyesight, intense training, and precision with firearms and ammunition. Thinkstock Photos The names of the team members were not released to the public for "operational security reasons." However, what we do know is that the sniper was using a McMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle and the bullet took under ten seconds to reach the target. This means it was travelling at a speed of 1,275 km/h. WOW! The shot helped disrupt an attack on Iraq's security forces. Instead of dropping bombs which could end up killing civilians, this "precise application of force" from a distance had the necessary impact with zero civilian casualties. The kill has been verified independently by video as well as other data. Here's some information about the sniper rifle used to make the shot: It's a world record which may never be beaten. The previous record was set by Craig Harrison, a British sniper, at 2,475 metres in 2009. Before this, the record for a Canadian sniper was 2,430 metres in 2002, set by Rob Furlong. Thinkstock Photos One last thing, Canada actually has a reputation for having some of the best snipers in the world despite the small size of its army compared to the likes of Britain and the United States. Whoever coined the term "strength in numbers" certainly didn't come up against the Canadian Elite Special Forces. Watch the full report here: (All images are for representational purposes only.)
  17. Rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday and thanked everyone who helped his career in music and movies. Friends and family attended the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard, including Dr. Dre, a former fellow member of the seminal "gangsta" rap group N.W.A. "You know, you don't get here by yourself and when you're coming up doing music, movies, just trying to be creative, you never figure you'll be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame one day," Ice Cube said. "So today is not really about Ice Cube, it's about all the people who helped me get here," he added. Ice Cube, born as O'Shea Jackson, found fame in the 1980s alongside Dr Dre in the influential West Coast rap group N.W.A., writing many of the song lyrics for their iconic "Straight Outta Compton" album. After leaving the group over a royalty dispute, he released his debut solo album "AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted" in 1990. The rapper began acting in movies in 1991 with a starring role in John Singleton's film about life in a Los Angeles ghetto, "Boyz n the Hood." He has since appeared in the films "Friday", "Barbershop", and "Three Kings." Ice Cube was also a producer on the 2015 biopic "Straight Outta Compton", which told the story of N.W.A. His son O'Shea Jackson Jr. portrayed him in the film.
  18. A suicide bomber detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle at a popular Baghdad ice cream shop, killing at least eight people, security officials said on Tuesday. The overnight attack in the Karrada district in central Baghdad also wounded at least 30 people, officials said. The Islamic State (IS) group-linked Amaq propaganda agency said the suicide bomber targeted a "gathering of Shiites." IS considers members of Iraq's Shiite Muslim majority to be heretics and frequently carries out attacks against them. The bomber struck just days after the start of the holy month of Ramazan, during which Iraqis often stay out late shopping or socialising after breaking their daily fast. Images and footage posted on social media showed the devastating impact of the blast, which ripped through the crowded area around Al-Faqma ice cream shop, scattering rubble across the street. One photo showed cups of ice cream scattered on the blood-stained ground following the attack. Brett McGurk, the envoy to the US-led anti-IS coalition, condemned the attack and expressed solidarity with Iraq. "ISIS terrorists tonight in Baghdad target children & families enjoying time together at an ice cream shop. We stand w/Iraq against this evil," McGurk said on Twitter, using an alternate acronym for IS. IS overran large areas north and west of Baghdad in 2014, but Iraqi forces backed by US-led air strikes have since regained much of the territory they lost and are now fighting to retake the last jihadist-held areas in second city Mosul. But defeats on the battlefield have not prevented IS from carrying out deadly attacks targeting civilians, including a bombing in the Karrada area last year that killed more than 300 people.

  20. This is stuff straight out of a sci-fi nightmare. Just when we were beginning to get complacent of living in the modern world in which there’s a cure for almost anything, there comes the most dreadful discovery. Thanks to global warming, the earth’s ice caps are melting already and it’s worse than it sounds. Deadly viruses and bacteria that were preserved in ice hundreds of years ago are waking up again with the thawing ice. © Reuters These are mostly viruses that were frozen centuries ago, often in the form of rotting corpses of humans and animals who died from an infectious disease. The BBC reported how in the 1890s small pox had afflicted a town in Siberia, wiping almost half the population. The corpses were buried in the frozen ground near River Kolyma flowing through northeastern Siberia. And now due to global warming, the frozen banks of the river are melting. Never thought the world would be introduced to small pox again. Remember, scientists destroyed the last strains of chicken pox form the face of the earth in 1980. © Reuters There is a possibility that the cold polar regions will see epidemics breaking out again, as the earth begins to warm up more. In 2016, over 20 people were infected by anthrax, resulting in the death of a 12-year-old boy in Yamal Peninsula in the Arctic Circle. Why would a deadly disease suddenly unleash into a cold region? It is believed that the infection spread from a 75-year-old frozen carcass of a reindeer who had died from anthrax. There had been a heatwave in the area that year, causing the frozen ground (permafrost) to thaw. And this is just the beginning. Scientists predict more such cases will occur, as the earth gets heated up in the coming months and years. © Reuters We have developed antibiotics and vaccines for almost every disease in the world, except some caused by viruses. Over the years, pathogens have also become stronger due to resistance against antibiotics. But turns out that was just the tip of the iceberg. The real diseases are hidden underneath the ice and they are coming back to life. H/T – BBC, The Huffington Post
  21. Global warming has caused ice to melt faster than normal in the Antarctic, but a study Tuesday suggested the rate of loss in some areas may be slower than previously thought. Researchers in Britain mapped the change in the speed of ice loss using data from five different satellites, said the report in Geophysical Research Letters, a US scientific journal. After studying changes at more than 30 glaciers since 1992 in Western Palmer Land -- the southwestern corner of the Antarctic Peninsula -- they found ice loss has increased. "Between 1992 and 2016, the flow of most of the region's glaciers increased by between 20 and 30 centimeters (eight to 12 inches) per day, equating to an average 13 percent speedup across the glaciers of Western Palmer Land as a whole," said the report. But the change amounts to just a third of the 45 cubic kilometers (11 cubic miles) of ice loss per year from the sector recently reported by another research team at the University of Bristol. "Although Western Palmer Land holds a lot of ice -- enough to raise global sea levels by 20 centimeters (eight inches) -- its glaciers can't be responsible for a major contribution to sea level rise, because their speed has barely changed over the past 25 years," said study co-author Andrew Shepherd, a professor at the University of Leeds School of Earth and Environment. The greatest speed up in flow and ice loss was seen at glaciers that were grounded at depths more than 300 meters (1,000 feet) below the ocean surface, where warm and salty water can melt ice at the base. Researchers say that, despite the slower rate of melting found in some regions, the continent as a whole is losing mass faster than ever due to climate change.

  23. Lack of funding, athlete exploitation and poor facilities- these are some of the most glaring loopholes in Indian sports. While the government continues to act deaf and blind, our athletes gives all they have and earn medals for the country anyway. This time around, it’s a team you wouldn’t have ever heard about before. Let alone the team, people wouldn’t even know that this sport exists in cricket-crazed India. We are talking about the Women’s Ice Hockey Team. The champs just won their first ever international match at the 2017 IIHF Challenge Cup of Asia, in Thailand. Neglected by the government, the team was given a helping hand by an online content portal called 'The Logical Indian'. They started a crowd funding campaign and amassed as much as 32 lakhs for the team. While you are too busy with stuff like that, take a minute and pay attention to their existence and achievements, they sure have earned it. We here at Mensxp wish them all the best in the upcoming matches.
  24. In a country where cricket hogs the limelight all year round it’s very difficult for other sports to make their presence felt. And we, as a nation, need to diversify into as many disciplines as we can because sports bind us and help create a community which stands for each other no matter the differences. © Twitter The Indian Women’s Ice Hockey team, training on a frozen pond in Gupuks, in Leh have nothing but the passion for the sport which keeps them going. Last year, the team played their hearts out in an international tournament in Chinese Taipei. There were no medals or silverware to show for their effort at the 2016 IIHF Challenge Cup Of Asia but they did come close to beating Malaysia in the group stages. And if that was not a positive enough sign, Noor Jahan, the Indian goalie was awarded tournament’s best goaltender award for saving 193 shots out of a total of 229. This was a big achievement for the Indian team considering they have been practicing without proper funds or a standard rink and training equipment. Already, the stories of their passion for the game are making the rounds on social media. Last year, for example, the girls would fill buckets and prepare their own rink to practice on the frozen pool from 8PM to 3AM in groups of four. The funding till now has been scanty. To get government funding the sport needs 75% affiliate member states and it’s virtually impossible right now. So, in order to train for Challenge Cup of Asia the association has started a Ketto campaign where you can now donate and support our Indian team. If you’re susceptible about donating, here is the breakup of how your donations will be used: © ketto So, move over cricket and football and support the India Women’s Ice Hockey team here.
  25. Tim Linhart, an artist from New Mexico, USA, has been carving ice sculptures for over 30 years now. He has been building frozen concert halls for over a decade and his latest one is packed with fully functional musical instruments that are made almost completely out of ice. © Youtube About twenty years ago, Tim carved a musical string bass entirely out of ice from the top of a mountain, and decided to continue with this unique endeavour. The only problem he ran into was that he needed a space with a constant freezing temperature to store these instruments. © Youtube He said, “I plucked on the wires and I heard the sound coming out from inside the instrument.” "And I was so excited by what I heard that I put on my skis and skied all the way down to the village and told them what had happened to me and how excited I was. "They pretty much thought I was a kook.” "Well, on that day I sort of had a dream - a vision of what could one day become. Welcome to my dream." © Youtube To make his cave, he chose the Swedish town of Lulea, which is located just below the Arctic Circle. He specifically designed the cave so that it would keep the delicate ice instruments cold, even when the hall is full of people. © Youtube He said, "You got hot bodies next to cold instruments and they're melting...the strings on the stringed instruments begin to get softer and the pitch goes down. "On the pipe instruments [the pitch] begins to go up, so you've got the orchestra going in two different directions." Check out a video of the unique project below: Since the cave has two domes to help with letting out the heat of the audience and keeping the instrument chilled, the concert hall can easily host entire gigs. Looks like we’ve got a new destination to head to.
