  1. Stop everything you are doing and check out this trippy, mystifying and whimsical trailer of 'A Wrinkle In Time' that Disney just dropped. We give Disney a 10 on 10 for its amazing cinematography and great use of VFX. But, before we start discussing the trailer, let's talk about a certain Bollywood movie that released over a decade ago and gave India its own 'superhero'. He was a superhero who could dance, sing, jump ovet mountains and buildings like it's no one's business and romance 'Quantico' girl Priyanka Chopra. Yes, we are talking about our man in black with a broken mask and cape, Krrish. Do you know whose fault is it? For those who saw the movie, you will remember that at least up until the interval, Krrish believed that his scientist father was dead and it was only when he follows Priyanka to Singapore that he realizes his father is actually alive. This movie treads on a similar path as well. A young girl sets out to find her astrophysicist father, after she finds out that he was alive all this while and held captive on a distant planet under the grip of a universe-spanning evil. In fact, the trailer also has traces of 'Koi…Mil Gaya' with scenes where the kid tries to show off the ubercool skills she learnt from her father and the fancy devices he created to travel to the stars. © Filmkraft Productions We are still blaming you! The trailer started on a really good note and had us hooked within the first few seconds with the kids discussing parallel dimensions and a bit of sci-fi action taking place in the backdrop. The story begins with a girl named Meg Murry who along with her younger brother, Charles Wallace, and friend Calvin O'Keefe, set off to find her missing father. Halfway into their journey, they are joined by Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit (Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon) who help her become a powerful warrior. Can someone please tell us where is Mr. What's Going On Here? Amidst the discussions and debates on finding her missing father and unraveling the secrets of universe, the best solution the makers could come up with was to throw the girl inside a fantasy world with witches and mystical creatures guiding her to become a warrior. Was cosmology too intelligent for the directors or did they simply choose toddlers to work on the remaining script? But, if you like science-fiction and fantasy, then this one might interest you. © Disney After a minute or so, the trailer becomes weird with Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Zack Galifianakis donning some hideous costumes, trying to train her to fight the evil forces of the universe. At one point, you might get confused and think that you accidently switched to 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Avatar'. What was the purpose of this creature? Let's ask Chris Pine and Storm Reid once they are back. © Disney Honestly, when the trailer started, we were vouching for this film to be among the best movies of 2018, but just a few seconds in and when we're already overloaded with a power-packed star-cast, the makers decided to get rid of logic because that's the easiest trick in the boom. But, we guess that's how this movie is meant to be as it is an adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's bestselling novel. So, if you believe in a fanciful parallel world with mystical creatures fighting evil forces, then you will definitely love this. The film is also helmed by Ava DuVernay. The movie is slated to release on March 9, 2018 and given the hype around it, we can't really wait to see how events unfold.
  2. SANTIAGO: A strong performance by Chile?s left-wing parties in Sunday?s election left conservative presidential frontrunner Sebastian Pinera facing a tight battle to win a December runoff and likely opposition to tax breaks in Congress if elected. Pinera came first with more than 36 percent of the vote, but his two main leftist rivals made a stronger-than-expected showing, garnering a combined 43 percent between them. That unnerved financial markets, which had long seen the billionaire former president as a shoo-in. Chile?s stock index sank 5 percent on Monday and the peso currency closed nearly 2 percent lower. Thanks to a surprise surge by a new leftist grouping, Frente Amplio (Broad Front), left-of-centre lawmakers will outnumber Pinera?s Chile Vamos (Let?s Go Chile) voting bloc in both houses of Congress, official results showed on Monday. But no voting bloc will have an absolute majority in either house. That would not bode well for Pinera?s plans to cut the corporate tax rate and slash red tape to woo new investments to Chile, the world?s top copper producer. And a Pinera victory in the Dec. 17 runoff for the presidency was no longer a sure thing, said election forecaster and political scientist Kenneth Bunker. ?It?s all up in the air right now,? Bunker said. ?We were just dumbfounded when the results started to come in.? Pinera, who governed Chile from 2010 to 2014, came in five percentage points short of forecasts by opinion polls before Sunday?s vote. His runoff opponent, center-left journalist-turned-Senator Alejandro Guillier, secured two percentage points more than expected. But the main surprise of Sunday?s vote was Frente Amplio candidate Beatriz Sanchez, who garnered twice as many votes as forecast. ?It?s going to be a tight and hard-fought election,? Pinera told foreign media on Monday. ?We?re going to appeal to the centre, to the kind of people who want moderation.? In another bad sign for Pinera, Chileans went to polls in slightly bigger numbers than expected on Sunday. Analysts consider a low turnout to favour the conservative candidate, as his supporters tend to be more likely to vote. Voter turnout in the first-round was nearly 47 percent, above pollster CEP?s expectations of 44 percent. TRICKY TASK AHEAD Chile, a country of 17 million people with a $250 billion economy, has been one of Latin America?s most business-friendly and stable nations since its transition to democracy in 1990. Its economy slowed, however, to an average growth rate of 1.8 percent during outgoing President Michelle Bachelet?s term, with lower copper prices dragging on government revenue. Guillier has promised to deepen Bachelet?s policies, from expanded access to free university education to protections for striking unions, without departing from Chile?s free-market economic model. He has a tricky task ahead to attract the support of Chile?s wide-ranging left-of-centre voters. Winning an endorsement from Sanchez - who has proposed new taxes on the mining industry and the ?super rich? - could pull him sharply to the left. Having slammed Pinera as a ?step backward? for Chile, Sanchez, a 46-year-old former radio journalist, could rally her supporters to vote for Guillier, but likely in exchange for policy concessions. ?If Mr Guillier wants us to vote for him, he?s going to have to give in to Beatriz?s proposals,? Sanchez supporter and salesman Hector Mino said. He cited Sanchez? plan to wipe out student debt and overhaul the public-private pension system to ensure bigger payouts as possible offerings. But a too-sharp left turn could hurt Guillier?s chances with centrists. As left-leaning blocs weighed possible alliances, Pinera received a rapid endorsement from far-right Jose Antonio Kast, who was knocked out of the first round race of eight candidates but won nearly 8 percent of votes. ?We?re not going to demand anything in return or condition our support? for Pinera, said Kast, who defended deceased Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet during the campaign.
  3. US President Donald Trump on Sunday upbraided the father of one of three UCLA basketball players who were detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting after he questioned Trump?s role in their release. ?Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!,? Trump wrote in a Twitter post. The three players from the University of California, Los Angeles apologized last week and thanked Trump for helping secure their release by raising the issue with Chinese President Xi Jinping during his visit. But LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo Ball, on Saturday downplayed Trump?s involvement in the release. ?Don?t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out,? he said on TV network ESPN. The White House declined to comment Sunday on the president?s tweet. The Republican president, while finishing up a 12-day, five-nation trip to Asia, said he had sought the help of Chinese President Xi Jinping in the case. ?What they did was unfortunate,? Trump told reporters in Manila last week, while describing Xi?s response as ?terrific.? The three players - Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill - admitted to stealing items from three stores during a team trip to China. Before they thanked Trump on Wednesday for intervening with Xi, Trump had wondered whether they would express gratitude to him. ?Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!,? Trump tweeted on Wednesday. Trump?s remarks on Sunday provoked strong reactions on Twitter, including from one Democratic lawmaker who accused the president of personal pettiness. ?The President would have left American students in a foreign jail because their families didn?t lavish sufficient praise on him. How can someone in such a big office be so small?? Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff wrote on Twitter.
  4. It's a bird, it's a plane, oh no, wait, it's a giant *****. Pulling the most overdone, yet hilarious prank, a US Navy pilot decided to put his artistic skill to good use by painting the sky with an enormous outline of a ***** using the condensation trails from his multi-million-dollar warplane. Residents of Omak in Okanogan County, Washington, were in for quite a shock when they looked up to see a F-18 jet drawing a giant ***** in the sky on Thursday. Obviously, pictures started circulating online immediately. The most monumental thing to happen in omak. A ***** in the sky pic.twitter.com/SM8k1tNYaj — Anahi Torres (@anahi_torres_) November 16, 2017 Even the Navy officials acknowledged one of their crews was behind the stunt, saying the aircraft “left a condensed air trail resembling an obscene image to observers on the ground.” Obviously, the US Navy was left red-faced because of the whole incident. In a statement, Lieutenant Commander Leslie Hubbell, a spokeswoman for the Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island said, “The actions of this aircrew were wholly unacceptable and antithetical to Navy core values.” “We have grounded the aircrew and are conducting a thorough investigation -- and we will hold those responsible accountable for their actions. “The Navy apologizes for this irresponsible and immature act,” she added.

You don´t expect to see something like that.” Totally. If a navy pilot drawing a ***** in the sky doesn't describe military shenanigans I don't know what will. — Shaffer (@AlexanderShaffr) November 17, 2017 Using an expensive machine built for war to draw a giant ***** in the sky is a little too on the nose for This Year In Symbolism. — erin mccann (@mccanner) November 17, 2017 Watch it in its full glory.
  5. [embed_video1 url=http://stream.jeem.tv/vod/7821a0c1ae15fe2816f3d043fd2d30e0.mp4/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=c2VydmVyX3RpbWU9MTEvMTYvMjAxNyAzOjIxOjQxIFBNJmhhc2hfdmFsdWU9a2c1RGhsSmZnMFZiNjBGaEt5S3lodz09JnZhbGlkbWludXRlcz02MCZpZD0x style=center] The family of Ghulam Rabbani, whose body was found along with 14 others on Wednesday, was hard to console as they heard the news of the killing. The sound of his mother?s wail echoed around his house as his body was brought home. Extended families members came to the house to extend their condolences. About 15 bullet-ridden bodies were recovered a day earlier from Buleda area of Kech district in Turbat. After offering their funeral prayers the bodies were sent to the respective areas in Punjab, where the deceased hailed from. Rabbani?s brother, Kashif Chand, while speaking to Geo News shared that an agent, identified as Abid Hussain, had guarantee safe passage for Rabbani to Iran. Chand remarked that Rabbani had left his house on November 2 with dreams to improve his life. 15 bullet-ridden bodies discovered in Balochistan's Turbat Bodies sent to hospital for post-mortem; investigations under way Similarly, Zulfikar Ali, Khurram Shahzad and Azhar Waqas had left their respective homes hoping for a better future. The three belong to Mandi Bahauddin. Others have been identified as Ahsan Raza, Tayyab Raza, Saifullah, Ghafoor Ahmed, Muhammad Hassan Nazir, Ghufran Zahid and Yund. Four of the deceased are yet to be identified. The men were deceived by human traffickers that they will be taken to Europe through Iran. Funeral prayers offered Earlier in the day, the funeral prayers of the deceased were held in Turbat and attended by the chief minister, as well as other senior civil and military officials. The bodies were later sent to the respective areas in Punjab where the deceased hailed from. A special plane of the military, C-130, took the bodies to homes of the deceased. Earlier, it was reported that ambulances from the Edhi Foundation will transport the bodies.

  7. Terzo Millennio or the "Third Millennium", Lamborghini's futuristic hypercar concept is now out in the open. Yes, it is a concept but we'd like to watch Lamborghini turn it into a reality. Considering they teamed up with some of the best minds from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), we don't see what could possibly get in the way of making this beauty an actual road warrior. If the Batmobile were real, it would have to be the Terzo Millennio and we aren't just saying that because of it's matte black exterior and menacing swooping fenders, the vehicle is beyond anything the world has seen, it's metaphysical! Source: Lamborghini What's so special about the Terzo Millennio? Aside from how heart-wrenchingly beautiful it is, the vehicle packs a promise for eco-friendly function without any compromise on the performance. The vehicle is being engineered to store as well as re-generate power for long lasting performance. What does that mean and how exactly are the marque automobile makers planning to achieve this feat? Heard of supercapacitors? If not, let's just say, for the sake of simplicity, they are advanced battery-like instruments that generate and release almost instantly. So let's say you're speeding in an electric or hybrid car and apply brakes, its supercapacitors would store the power generated to reach that speed and once you take your foot off of the brakes, they would release the stored energy to re-power the vehicle (that's regenerative brakes explained, if you will). Source: Lamborghini Moral of the story-- no loss of power. Remember your dad asking you to not accelerate your fossil-fuel powered car when you know you're about to brake in front of a traffic signal because fuel pumped in once is fuel lost, spoiling the fuel economy? Well, in the Terzo Millennio, that concept doesn't apply because power is never lost, so your dad wouldn't say that to you if you were driving this baby. Source: Lamborghini That's what the Terzo Millennio promises, except on a much larger scale and beyond just regenerative braking. The brains at MIT are hard at work with Lamborghini, trying to develop a smart carbon fibre bodywork that could also become a reservoir of energy and can self heal. Huh? Source: Lamborghini Yup, the bodywork of the vehicle has been envisioned to fix itself of minor cracks and dents. Given the dangerously low floor of the vehicle, one could expect the splitter to almost graze against the ground or any raised surface that may come in its wake-- self healing would come in handy there. So it's not only futuristic, it's almost human! Since energy is everything in the Terzo Millennio, the vehicle may be electric, and Lamborghini has upped the powertrain by giving each of the tyres their very own electric motors. It's a no brainer that the vehicle will come with a lot of power. To be honest they had our affection the moment we laid eyes on the slit LED headlamp revealing teaser itself, the ideas have got our heads spinning with excitement. Source: Lamborghini
  8. Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos speaks during a news conference in Bogota, Colombia, October 27, 2017. REUTERS/Jaime Saldarriaga/Files BOGOTA: Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, in response to his name appearing in a trove of leaked documents about offshore investments, said he left a company registered in tax haven Barbados before taking a ministerial post with a previous government. The so-called Paradise Papers published on Sunday showed the investments of wealthy people and institutions ranging from United States Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to Britain?s Queen Elizabeth. Reuters has not independently verified the documents. Santos was listed in the leaked documents as a board member of insurance company Nova Holding in April and May 2000 and also Global Tuition, an insurance firm focused on education, from April 1999 to May 2001. Santos said in a statement on Sunday that he left Global Tuition before taking up his duties as Finance Minister in the government of then-President Andres Pastrana in August 2000. He said he was not a partner, did not invest any money and was not paid for serving on the board. ?I imagine they delayed in officially registering the changes,? Santos said in answers given to El Espectador newspaper and released by his office. ?I participated until before I became Finance Minister.? Santos said that after 2000 he was a Global Tuition client ?for some of their insurance for the education of my three children.? Global Tuition?s office was closed in Colombia for a public holiday on Monday and could not be reached for comment. The company?s office in the United States said any comment would come from the Colombia office. The president?s statement did not mention the other company, Nova Holding. Nova Holding could not immediately be reached for comment. The documents were obtained by Germany?s Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper and shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and some media outlets, including El Espectador and Connectas website in Colombia. The names of three former Colombian defence ministers and two former ambassadors to the United States also appear in the leaked papers.
  9. Iceland's Prime Minister Bjarni Benediktsson. AFP/Halldor Kolbeins REYKJAVIK: Icelandic Prime Minister Bjarni Benediktsson's conservative party looked set to retain its position as the country's biggest party in Saturday's general election, early vote counting showed, but the makeup of the future government remained uncertain. Bolstered by a thriving economy, scandal-plagued Benediktsson and his Independence Party were facing a challenge from the Left Green Movement and its potential allies ? the Social Democratic Alliance and the anti-establishment Pirate Party ? which could still dethrone the conservatives if they manage to secure a fourth ally. With around 25 percent of actual votes counted, Independence was credited with 17 seats in the 63-seat parliament, followed by the Left-Green Movement with 11 and the Social Democratic Alliance with eight. Under the Icelandic system, the president, who holds a largely ceremonial role, tasks the leader of the biggest party with forming a government. "We are winning this election. We hope to get more seats in parliament as the night goes on," Benediktsson told a cheering crowd of supporters at the Independence Party's election rally in Reykjavik. "We will need to take a deep breath and wait for the final results to see the options on the table," he later told AFP, adding: "I am optimistic that we can form a government." Final results were not expected until Sunday morning, but even then it could take days, weeks, or even months for the leader of the biggest party to form a coalition, as up to nine parties vied for seats in parliament and many said all coalition options remained open until negotiations were held. The election campaign has played out against a backdrop of deep public distrust in the political elite following a slew of scandals in recent years. Benediktsson called Saturday's election ? Iceland's fourth since 2008 and second in a year ? after a junior member of his three-party centre-right coalition pulled out last month over a legal controversy involving the PM's father. Benediktsson, a former lawyer and businessman whose family is one of the richest and most influential in Iceland, has also been implicated in several financial scandals, including the so-called Panama Papers release which revealed global tax avoidance and evasion. Economy's big role If the left were to seize power, it would be just the second left-leaning government in Iceland since its proclamation as a republic in 1944. The first one governed in 2009-2013, when the Social Democrats and the Left Greens ousted the right after Iceland's 2008 economic crisis ? when its three major banks collapsed and the country teetered on the verge of bankruptcy. "I hope that when all the results are in, we will be a part of the next government," Left-Green leader Katrin Jakobsdottir, 41, told party supporters in Reykjavik. Her campaign promises included investing in social infrastructure and ensuring that Iceland's economic prosperity reaches the health care and education sectors. Nearly one in two Icelanders would prefer to have her as their new prime minister, according to a September 19-21 poll published by daily Morgunbladid. Since the 2008 financial crisis, Iceland has made a spectacular recovery with robust growth of 7.2 percent in 2016 and unemployment at an enviable 2.5 percent. A year ago, snap elections were called after prime minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson was pressured to resign when he was named in the Panama Papers scandal. More than 600 Icelanders ? in a country of just 335,000 people ? were also named in the documents, including Benediktsson, then finance minister. Benediktsson still managed to build a coalition with the centre-right Reform Party and the centrist Bright Future, but the latter quit after nine months because the prime minister had covered up the fact that his father signed a recommendation letter for a convicted paedophile who sought to restore his civil rights. Independence Party supporters still view it as the main force for economic stability and growth. Nearly half of Iceland's postwar prime ministers came from the eurosceptic party. 'Rich parents' In Iceland, construction is booming: cranes dominate the skies in Reykjavik's city centre, away from the island's breathtaking volcanoes and glaciers. But its thriving tourism scene has caused an increase in housing prices and a shortage of apartments, many of which are rented out to tourists. According to Iceland's Housing Financing Fund, rents in the capital rose 13.9 percent in the year to September. "The people in the government do not understand (working people) because they all have rich parents," Jarya Sukuay, a 23-year-old voter in Reykjavik, told AFP.
  10. Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander Qassem Soleimani uses a walkie-talkie at the frontline during offensive operations against Daesh militants in Salahuddin province of Syria March 8, 2015. Photo: Reuters BAGHDAD/LONDON: When the Iraqi army and Iranian-backed Shia militia entered a key oil processing facility in Iraq?s north to retake it from Kurdish Peshmerga forces last week, the installation was deserted and its alarm bells ringing. Engineers and workers on the facility, which processes oil from two major fields in the Kirkuk area of predominantly Sunni Kurdistan, had fled, fearing the military advance. ?No one wanted to risk their life and decided to evacuate as stories about the militia and Qassem Soleimani were spreading fast,? said a senior Kurdish oil industry source, referring to the head of foreign operations (Quds Force) for Iran?s elite Revolutionary Guards. The source declined to be identified. Iraqi engineers arrived to the sound of alarm bells warning about system malfunctions, prompting them to immediately shut down wells. Now, they need passwords and expertise from their Kurdish counterparts to restore oil output fully. The loss of control of Kirkuk oil fields is likely to starve the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) of vital oil revenue and cause deep concern to global trading houses such as Vitol and Glencore, which have granted the semi-autonomous government billions of dollars in loans against future oil sales. Iraqi forces seize oil city Kirkuk from Kurds in bold advance It was not immediately clear whether or when the Iraqi government would seek to retake control of all Kirkuk oilfields Baghdad?s lightning military offensive into northern Iraq came after the KRG held an independence referendum last month. Maj Gen Soleimani, one of the most influential military figures in the Middle East, with reach in Syria and Lebanon, issued tough warnings to Kurdish leaders ahead of the Iraqi military advance. ?We went inside the oilfield facilities after Kurdish workers fled and we found overalls and safety boots thrown on the ground,? said an engineer from the Baghdad-run North Oil Company (NOC), who declined to be named because he was ordered not to speak publicly about the issue. ?It seems that workers took them off and escaped very quickly.? Ringing alarms NOC crews entered oil facilities in the Bai Hassan and Avana fields on October 17 for the first time since 2014, when Peshmerga forces drove Daesh from the area and found all crude oil stations unmanned. Peshmerga fighters had also withdrawn. ?After we discovered that some of the key equipment was missing and the control panel was ringing alarms of crude processing malfunction, we immediately shut down oil wells,? the NOC engineer said. A week after the operation, Iraqi engineers are still struggling to resume Kirkuk?s oil production, saying they had yet to understand how to operate the equipment processing some 350,000 barrels per day. The military offensive more than halved Kurdistan?s oil output and cut its exports to global markets via Turkey by two thirds. The drop in exports has deprived the region of more than $200 million in revenues over the past week, a Kurdish oil industry source familiar with loadings told Reuters. It has also dealt a further blow to the region?s finances already stretched by a fight against Daesh and a budget crisis caused by a fall in oil prices. The United States has called on both sides to resume dialogue, saying the tensions hamper efforts to fight Daesh. Resuming normal oil production and exports will be challenging and will take at least another week and will only succeed if Iraqi and Kurdish engineers agree to cooperate, according to both sides.

Photo: Reuters On Tuesday, NOC officials asked Kurdish engineering firm Kar Group to send back its workers, according to sources on both sides. Iraqi engineers need guidance on how to operate recently installed equipment at Bai Hassan and Avana, the sources said. The pumping and operational stations for both oil fields are located in the city of Dahuk, which unlike Kirkuk is still under the control of the Peshmerga forces. Like a locked box ?Energy facilities in Kirkuk are more like a locked box and only their crew have the password,? the Iraqi engineer said. Kar Group has, however, so far refrained from going back without security guarantees, according to sources close to the engineering company. Kirkuk, one of the oldest and best-known oil areas in the Middle East, had long been under the control of Iraqi forces until it was overrun by Daesh. In 2014, it was retaken by the Peshmerga, the official security forces of the KRG, as part of their advance on Daesh. That allowed Kurdistan to regain control of an area it believes is historically Kurdish and ramp up exports from the oil fields while borrowing billions of dollars from trading houses and Russian state oil major Rosneft. Kurdistan region offers to freeze independence vote, engage in talks with Baghdad The Iraqi government has transformed the balance of power in the north of the country since launching a campaign last week to seize back territory from the Kurds ?We need to figure out who gets what when the fields resume production. At the moment the potential split of revenues is far from clear,? said the Kurdish oil industry source. Before the referendum, Kurdistan was exporting some 600,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude via Turkey, which it said had made it almost totally economically independent as it could pay its own bills without the need to wait for budget transfers from Baghdad. Under the deal with Baghdad, Kurdistan was exporting 540,000 bpd on behalf of the government in the city of Erbil and some 60,000 bpd on behalf of NOC. With the loss of control of the Kirkuk area, Kurdistan will be in theory left with only 250,000-300,000 bpd of its own output, less than it needs to cover its debt obligations. Vitol, Glencore, Petraco and Trafigura have loaned Kurdistan some $2.5 billion and Russia?s Rosneft has loaned some $1.2 billion. Glencore?s boss Ivan Glasenberg said last week he could not rule out a rescheduling of the payments.
  11. MULTAN: Minister for Finance Ishaq Dar has practically left the ministry and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was looking for a new person to head the country?s financial affairs, said Awami Muslim League?s Sheikh Rasheed. While addressing a news conference in Multan on Wednesday, Rasheed said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz?s chief Nawaz Sharif has caused immense loss to the country destroying it financially. There is no official proof of Dar?s resignation from the ministry. However, Abbasi had removed him from his post as the chairperson of the Economic Coordination Committee of the Cabinet. Abbasi became the committee?s head when the decision was taken in August, a few days after he was sworn in as the prime minister. During the news conference on Wednesday, Rasheed also said that some minister of PML-N from south Punjab were planning to leave the party. About the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case, the AML chief reiterated his previously made statement saying it was the mother of all crimes. He added that verdict on the case will decide the fate of PML-N, which is in power in the Centre. According to Rasheed, if the Sharifs are indicted in the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case no one would be able to save them. The Hudaibiya Paper Mills money laundering reference was initiated over the confession made by Dar. In 2000, Dar admitted to his role in alleged laundering of millions of dollars for the Sharifs. The AML chief also spoke about the controversy surrounding position of office-bearer for PML-N, saying Nawaz did not give a chance to his brother Shehbaz Sharif, who is also the chief minister of Punjab, despite being disqualified. Rasheed added Nawaz has been in politics for the last 40 years but has not yet groomed a successor for PML-N.
  12. Actress 'Suits' Meghan Markle and Prince Harry being a thing is not something under covers ? the two have been media's favourite past time for discussion. Meghan has reportedly informed 'Suits' producers that she will not be returning for the next season, which sparked rumours of her marriage to Prince Harry. According to the latest updates, Prince Harry might have already popped the question to Markle during their recent trip to Botswana. ?Meghan knows she can?t really act at the same time as being a princess and is happy to make this career sacrifice,? said a source. ?She really enjoys her charity work with Unicef and will broaden out her charity commitments when she becomes a full-time royal.? Prince Harry and Markle have been officially dating since October last year, although they were first seen together in June 2016. The couple made their first public appearance at the Invictus Games in Toronto.
  13. COLOMBO: Sri Lanka has dropped Lasith Malinga from the one-day international squad to face Pakistan in a five-match series starting next week, raising doubts if the fast bowler will feature in the team´s plans for the 2019 World Cup. Malinga, feared for his awkward action and toe-crushing yorkers, returned to international cricket during June´s Champions Trophy following a knee injury that kept him out of the World Twenty20 last year. But the 34-year-old has not been as effective since his return and has managed 10 wickets from 13 ODIs since his return. He has taken 301 wickets from 204 matches in his career. Sri Lanka, who lost 5-0 to India at home recently, will also be without former captain and all-rounder Angelo Mathews, who is struggling with a calf injury. The first ODI will be played on Oct. 13 in Dubai, with the teams also slated to play a three-match T20 series.

  17. PARIS: France said two people had been killed on St Barts and St Martin after the two eastern Caribbean islands were hit by Hurricane Irma, and announced it would set up an emergency fund to help them rebuild. "At the present moment, there are reports of two dead and two seriously injured," the French minister for overseas affairs, Annick Girardin, told the news channel BFMTV. "But obviously, the situation can change very, very quickly." Separately, French President Emmanuel Macron, after chairing a crisis meeting at the interior ministry in Paris, warned that the toll would be "harsh and cruel" and that damage on the two islands was "considerable." "A national reconstruction plan will be implemented as soon as possible," Macron said, adding that an emergency fund to finance it would be set up. Girardin was to fly to the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe late Wednesday with emergency teams and supplies to assess the situation, the ministry said. St. Martin ("Sint Maarten" in Dutch), located south of the island of Anguilla, is divided between the Netherlands and France. St. Barts ("Saint Barthelemy" in French), which lies to the southeast of St. Martin, is administered with the status of a French collectivity, as is the French part of St. Martin.

  19. There goes a popular saying, “You scratch my back, I will scratch yours!” And the people in tinsel town effortlessly do it. Well, it's as simple as "you sing praises to me and I will return the favour". Every time a film releases in B-town, the makers of the film often hold a special screening for B-town people. The close friends and colleagues are invited and they become the first one to critic the film before anyone of us gets the chance. The Khans are often seen raving about each other's film, giving us an impression that it is the best film of the year maybe. Do you remember SRK before 'Tubelight'? Or Aamir Khan after watching 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'? These celebs rule social media and often tweet about what they think about the film. Sometimes the reviews are genuine and we vouch for such movies too. However, lately, it looks like a trend that no matter how pathetic and disappointing the film is, the prominent celebs go all gaga over it. Well, we are all up for the right of opinion but at least don't fake it to the world. When a movie is a disaster, call it so! Famous Bollywood celebs like Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt are often seen tweeting great things about the film. And when we go and watch that film, all we tend to wonder is if we both saw the same film? Here are 5 Bollywood movies of 2017 that tanked at the box-office and left us disappointed but bro, you got to see how celebs made it sound like a great piece of art: Jab Harry Met Sejal (c) Red Chilies Entertainment Lately none of Shah Rukh Khan's films are performing well at the box office. But how can we ever blame King Khan for it? After all he is the badshah and the whole B-town needs to bow to the king. Exactly was the case when 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' released. While the whole world couldn't get over the fact that why such a film was even created in the first place, you had director Ashutosh Gowariker and actress Kriti Sanon tweeting boosting SRK's ego.

Based on the 1952 Indo-China war, the film was a lost cause and you don't have to be a 'Tubelight' to figure this one out. However, Preity Zinta was on another tangent and rooted for this film to be a blockbuster. Unfortunately, not everyone felt the same.

On the other hand Ayushmann Khurana was just being nice to his co-star Kriti Sannon, after all they were working on a film together. #Raabta should be only seen in the theatre make it your weekend watch.

A big dose of COURAGE! Go watchð — Alia Bhatt (@aliaa08) April 14, 2017
  20. Supporters of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh rest as they gather near a stadium in Panchkula in the northern state of Haryana, India, August 24, 2017. Photo: Reuters NEW DELHI: Days before his conviction on Friday for rape, Indian spiritual guru Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh launched a month of lavish birthday celebrations, waiting on a stage at his cult?s vast compound to be greeted by politicians donating tens of thousands of dollars to his organisation. Singh, whose conviction for raping two women sparked riots by his followers that killed 38 people, exemplifies the power ? and controversy ? of a band of so-called ?godmen? whose stature is growing in modern-day India. A movie star, singer and cult leader with a penchant for all things bling, Singh commands the support of large numbers of mostly poorer people in northern India. Spiritual gurus are believed to possess unique healing powers, and are popular among those whose economic insecurities are outpacing the state?s ability to deliver. As India becomes wealthier and increasing numbers of people feel left behind, they turn to gurus for spiritual and material sustenance. Indian court sentences self-styled guru to 20 years in prison ?Baba blessings have changed my life. I used to drink daily, fight with my wife and spend a lot of money on health,? said a local farmer and follower of Singh. He declined to be named as he feared police action after the guru was handed two 10-year jail sentences on Monday. ?My family says now I am a changed man and there is a peace in our lives,? the farmer said, adding he would continue to follow Singh and his Dera Sacha Sauda group from its base in Sirsa, 240 kms (149 miles) from New Delhi in the state of Haryana. At his sprawling 700-odd acre compound, Singh offers free medical treatment and schooling, showcases his latest films and churns out organic food products under his MSG, or ?Messenger of God?, branding. National cricket heroes come to pay their respects; journalists wait for him to emerge from his underground living quarters; his sermons attract tens of thousands. ?Poorer people want an escape route and the deras are considered an escape route. They give people solace, hope,? said Professor Sukhdev Singh Sohal at Guru Nanak Dev University. He estimates that close to 2.5 million people follow gurus, or deras, in the states of Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana. More money, more visible Gurus have long existed in India, where the majority religion, Hinduism, lacks formal organised structures that would limit the emergence of self-ordained men. Indian yoga guru Baba Ramdev gestures as addresses the media during a news conference in Ahmedabad, India, May 10, 2017. Photo: Reuters They are also popular in areas populated by Sikhs, including in Punjab and Haryana where Singh?s devotees largely live. Many gurus also play a positive role in the lives of their followers: delivering charity to the needy, and providing ostracised lower-castes with the hope that they need not be trapped by rigid caste hierarchies. The new generation of guru is, however, less the wandering ascetic, and more a powerful, flamboyant personality, often rich, and with the means to summon supporters on to the streets. Some of Singh?s followers said they were ready to die for him. He faces separate allegations that he encouraged up to 400 of his followers to undergo castration, a charge he denies, but which critics say demonstrates his ability to brainwash. Other gurus, while less controversial, are hugely influential. Baba Ramdev, a friend of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, runs the Patanjali consumer goods brand that has boomed in recent years. Another, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, is popular among wealthier members of society and has a large following in North America. Their power has been left unchecked by politicians who prefer to woo the godmen to deliver their armies of supporters as votes. Modi?s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has enjoyed support from Singh in recent elections. ?There is part fear and part reverence of these gurus among politicians. That?s why they have an enormous amount of informal power,? said Santosh Desai, an Indian social commentator. Hindu spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar acknowledges his followers before an open-air meditation day organised by the Art of Living foundation in Buenos Aires September 9, 2012. Photo: Reuters ?The gurus are more visible today, they have more money. There is a more consumerist sheen to them. They are brands,? he said, adding that men like Singh had successfully combined religious tradition with materialism to appeal to a more aspirational population. At the start of Singh?s 50th birthday celebrations on Aug 15, several ministers from Haryana?s ruling BJP greeted Singh. One gifted his organisation 5.1 million rupees ($79,812) for developing sports facilities, according to a video of the celebrations released by one of Singh?s TV networks and local media reports. Ronki Ram, a political scientist who has studied gurus extensively, said Singh's imprisonment ? his lawyer said on Monday he would appeal ? would undermine his support base, and followers would gradually drift away. But it would not mean the end of the godmen. "Politicians come to seek votes, people come to find answers to their social and psychological problems. Then more people come because they think if the politician is coming, he (the guru) must be important," he told Reuters.
  21. ‘Game Of Thrones' has ended its seventh season today and while digesting things will take some time, it is the ending that left us gasping for breath and some fresh air. Oh my god! We were waiting for the White Walkers to touch the wall the entire season and they totally made it worth the freaking wait. © HBO Viserion was raised from the dead by the Night King himself and while people were waiting to see what happens, it now makes sense to understand that it was all a part of an elaborate plan by the dead villain to use the dragon for his own army. Tormund and the others are casually looking around when they see the dead army marching. Panic did strike hard but all hell was let loose when the Night King comes flying on the dragon and off goes the wall. BOOM! Just like that. How do you fathom it? The sad part is that this could mean the end of Tormund and his love life dreams that he was weaving for quite a while. The wall is now down, the army is descending to the other side and there is a very powerful dragon that spits icy fire, if that makes any sense. This means that danger is coming soon and in the next season we can expect some major shit going down. People are going to die and war is happening. Good thing for Jon Snow is that he has Targaryen blood and can even possibly survive fire. How do we deal with these withdrawal symptoms now?
  22. file Five-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova withdrew from the WTA Bank of the West Classic just before her scheduled second-round match Wednesday with a left arm injury, tournament officials announced. "We're sad to announce that @mariasharapova has withdrawn after doctor's advice regarding her left arm," a post on the tournament's Twitter feed said. Sharapova played her first US match in more than two years on Monday, defeating American Jennifer Brady 6-1, 4-6, 6-0 in an opening-round match at the hardcourt event in Stanford, California. "Toward the end of the Monday night's match, I felt pain in my left forearm," Sharapova said in a statement Wednesday. "After yesterday's scan, the doctor has recommended I don't risk further injury." The former world number one from Russia hadn't played in the US since March of 2015, before serving a 15-month doping suspension for the use of meldonium. Seventh-seeded Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko advanced by walkover as a result of wildcard entrant Sharapova's early exit. "Unfortunately, I have to withdraw from today's match," Sharapova said. "Monday night's crowd was so special and I wish I could continue playing but I have to make a preventative decision." Sharapova told supporters after her Monday match that her cheers meant a great deal to her. "I feel like I just want to hug everyone and say thank you," Sharapova said Monday. "It's my first match in the States in a really long time, and it's the closest thing to home for me." The latest injury brings into question whether or not Sharapova will be fit in time for the US Open, which starts August 28, as well as for another key tuneup event in Cincinnati in two weeks for which Sharapova has also accepted a wildcard. Sharapova, 30, returned to competition in April, but her comeback was disrupted by a hip injury that forced her to withdraw from Wimbledon qualifying. Sharapova's ranking has fallen to 171 in the world. "I feel like I'm playing catch-up against everyone who has had a head start," Sharapova said after her match. "All that matters is that I keep playing."

From looking absolutely cute to fighting with the goons smartly, he made us laugh like crazies throughout the film.

However, he denied it all and said in an interview with The Guardian, “I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or something,” saying that the media used it as a way to “shift papers”.</p> <p class="articleimg"><img id="ed-img" class="art-lazy anim-gif imwidth-500" title="Home Alone" data-gif_image="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/image4-macaulayculkin-giphy-1501321220.gif" data-original="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/image4-macaulayculkin-giphy-1501321220.gif" alt="Home Alone" src="http://media.new.mensxp.com/media/content/2017/Jul/image4-macaulayculkin-giphy-1501321220.gif" />(c) Giphy</p> <p>Well, now again a photo has appeared online and once again he has shocked everyone with his sudden transformation but this time for good.
