  1. Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York, US, August 17, 2017. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid NEW YORK: US stocks lost ground late to end lower on Friday following a White House-focused week that raised more questions about the Trump administration's ability to implement its pro-growth agenda. While the day's losses were small, Friday marked the first time stocks haven't risen the day after a more than 1 percent drop since Donald Trump was elected president on November 8. The week's losses further dented the post-election rally, which was built on Trump's promises of tax cuts and higher infrastructure spending. Thursday's 1.5-percent drop in the S&P 500 came a week after a similar fall, and while the benchmark index still is up 13.4 percent since the election, it is down 2.1 percent in the last two weeks. That's the most since the two weeks before the election. "While this mini correction we're seeing may not amount to much, it's probably caused by this escalation in doubt of all of these things that seemed hopeful to investors at the beginning of the Trump administration," said J. Bryant Evan, investment advisor and portfolio manager at Cozad Asset Management, in Champaign, Illinois. In the latest shakeup, the White House said Trump on Friday fired chief strategist Steve Bannon, known as an economic nationalist and an advocate of "America First" policies. Critics have accused him of harbouring anti-Semitic and white nationalist sentiments. While stocks turned higher following reports of Bannon's departure, they lost those gains heading into the close. The news followed a week heavy with speculation and focus on the White House. On Thursday, there was concern about the possible departure of National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn; on Wednesday, Trump disbanded some business councils. Trump also alienated some corporate leaders and US allies this week with his comments following violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where there was a white nationalist protest against the removal of a Confederate statue. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 76.22 points, or 0.35 percent, to close at 21,674.51, the S&P 500 lost 4.46 points, or 0.18 percent, to 2,425.55 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 5.39 points, or 0.09 percent, to 6,216.53. The S&P 500 closed roughly 1 percent below its 50-day moving average, the furthest below that key technical measure since mid-April and the closest to its 200-day moving average since the election. For the week, the Dow was down 0.8 percent, the S&P 500 was down 0.7 percent and the Nasdaq fell 0.6 percent. Shares of sporting goods retailers and Deere weighed on the market following disappointing results. Nike's 4.4-percent slide weighed the most on the Dow, following dismal results from sporting goods retailers Foot Locker and Hibbett. Deere's 5.4-percent fall was the biggest drag on the industrial sector after the farm equipment maker reported a second straight quarter of lower-than-expected sales. Friday also was the eighth straight day in which the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq had more stocks making new 52-week lows than highs, matching a similar streak leading up to Trump's election. About 290 issues hit a 52-week low on Friday, the most since immediately after the presidential vote. The market's rally faces further tests in the weeks ahead with the approach of a historically weak month for equities and a host of other issues that could weigh on the market, including the Federal Reserve's September meeting, where it could announce plans to unwind its bond portfolio. Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 1.12-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.04-to-1 ratio favoured advancers. About 6.8 billion shares changed hands on US exchanges. That compares with the 6.4 billion daily average for the past 20 trading days, according to Thomson Reuters data.
  2. Photo: courtesy Pakistan Stock Exchange KARACHI: The benchmark KSE-100 index of the Pakistan Stock Exchange saw a decline of 900 points during market hours Thursday afternoon. The index reached a level of 43251.90 points and saw a decline of -2.2%. The bearish trend continued at the market as stocks continued to face losses. On Tuesday, the KSE-100 shed 1,889 point and closed at 43,899 points after shedding around three per cent. PSX closes in red over deteriorating political situation, index down by over 1,350 points Negative sentiments pushed the market down during early day trading on Tuesday During the day?s trading session, investors traded around 191 million shares of 392 companies, with a total trading volume of more than Rs9 billion. Experts predicted that the reason behind the plummet could be political turmoil and uncertainty.
  3. US Army soldiers from the 2nd Platoon, B battery 2-8 field artillery, fire a howitzer artillery piece at Seprwan Ghar forward fire base in Panjwai, Kandahar, Afghanistan, June 12, 2011. REUTERS/Baz Ratner/Files KABUL: The Taliban told US President Donald Trump in an open letter on Tuesday that the military situation in Afghanistan was "far worse than you realize", and sending in more troops would be self-destructive. A senior Taliban official told Reuters the rare decision to address Trump directly was timed to coincide with the president's deliberations on the future of US policy in Afghanistan. "Previous experiences have shown that sending more troops to Afghanistan will not result in anything other than further destruction of American military and economical might," the Taliban said in the lengthy English-language letter. It criticised the Afghan government as "stooges", "lying, corrupt leaders" and "repulsive sellouts" who were providing Washington with "rosy pictures" of the military position. The Taliban waged an increasingly violent insurgency against the Western-backed Afghan government since losing power in a US-led invasion after the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001. Those attacks were planned by al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden from a base in Afghanistan. "The war situation in Afghanistan is far worse than you realize!" the letter said, arguing that the only thing preventing the Taliban from seizing major cities was a fear of causing civilian casualties. The senior US commander in Afghanistan, General John Nicholson, has requested several thousand additional troops to act as advisers to the struggling Afghan security forces. Influential voices including Republican Senator John McCain have also urged an "enduring" US military presence in Afghanistan. But such plans have faced scepticism in the White House, where Trump and several top aides have criticized years of American military intervention and foreign aid. US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters on Monday that the Trump administration was "very, very close" to a decision on Afghanistan, adding that all options were on the table. However, U.S officials believe it could take weeks for a South Asia strategy to be approved. "We have noticed that you have understood the errors of your predecessors and have resolved to thoroughly rethink your new strategy in Afghanistan," the Taliban told Trump. "A number of warmongering congressmen and generals in Afghanistan are pressing you to protract the war in Afghanistan because they seek to preserve their military privileges." Some Taliban leaders disagreed with publishing the letter as they believe the group is close to being able to end the war on its own terms, while the "Americans are no longer in a position to fight this never-ending war," one Taliban official said. The first official said the Taliban was open to "discuss all issues with the United States for bringing peace to Afghanistan" if American troops are withdrawn. "Everyone now understands that the main driver of war in Afghanistan is foreign occupation," the Taliban letter said. "The Afghans have no ill-intention toward the Americans or any other nation around the world but if anyone violates their sanctums then they are mighty proficient at beating and defeating the transgressors."
  4. Everyone knows Manish Malhotra—the name, his larger-than-life designs and the incredible moment he manages to create on cinema—especially through his image-altering creations. Like the iconic transformation of Urmila from Rangeela, or the incredible launch of boy-next-door-turned-***-objects, Varun (Dhawan) and Sidharth (Malhotra) from Student of the year. What we are trying to say is that Mr. Malhotra's impact on the Indian fashion and film industry is enormous. Manish is to fashion, what SRK is to Bollywood. But what's even grander is his crew—a group of old-school and new-age celebrities and supermodels that are as close knit as one can be. He's also the busiest designer right now. Reason? Just after his high-profile couture show at India Couture Week in Delhi, Manish is all set to showcase a brand new collection at Lakme Fashion Week as his grand finale collection. Here's what you can expect... MXP: Tell us about the Inspiration behind the menswear collection—the palette, layering, fabrics etc.. MM: My collection Tales of Indulgence showcases the diversity I wanted to bring into menswear fashion. We've curated looks using textured fabrics like tweed and experimented with various cuts and silhouettes. The colour palettes range from chrome and oyster to grey and ivory and will lend a young, glamorous element to traditional festive attire. MXP: Are suits the new sherwanis? Why? MM: Well, the bridegroom is changing and so are his fashion preferences. While they are Indian at heart, they're also highly influenced by social media. Bridegrooms no longer want to follow the typical trend of wearing a sherwani all the time. They've become more experimental when it comes to fabrics, colors, and silhouettes. With this collection, I am introducing a new kind of bandwidth of Manish Malhotra. I love getting that diversity as a designer, as a label, as a person and I am pushing myself to do a lot more silhouettes. MXP: What are the biggest trends for the upcoming festive season? MM: This season is all about opting for high fashion looks straight off the runway that showcase an intricate design story of feathers, sequins, tassels, fringes, off shoulder and cold shoulder styles reminiscent of the fearless flapper trend of 1920's. One can beautifully play with pastel hues of ivory, grey, beige, lilac, aqua and baby pink, which are replacing the monotony of the traditional colors. For women, it will be cocktail dresses, flowy gowns with trains. For men, it will be fitted tuxedos, dinner jackets, bow-ties in colourful fabrics. MXP: What can we expect from the finale collection? MM: My closing show at Lakmé Fashion Week on 20th August will for the very first time present bespoke suits for men. After a successful menswear show at LFW a few seasons ago, the new collection Tales of Indulgence is a step forward through a renewed focus on the segment. With this collection, we've taken a step forward in terms of innovation and design by also introducing a bespoke tailoring service that will be available at our flagships store in Mumbai and New Delhi. The collection for women has been given a modern twist keeping it traditional and festive at the same time. Silhouettes like the stitched Sari and cape Kurtas in a colour palette including chrome, oyster grey and ivory lend a young, glamorous element to the festive attire. For the first time, we have also used black extensively in the collection. The collection accentuates the sensuality of the female form by using straight lines, flowy fabrics and low cuts in its construction which gives it a modern touch.
  5. We live in a time where smartphones are getting bigger displays in smaller bodies but Xiaomi is still making a smartphone for people who love even larger screens and primarily consume video. Smartphones are usually 5-inch and upwards in size today and are now considered the norm. However, the phablet market is still largely left untapped. Today, a 6-inch smartphone is considered to be large enough to fall into that category and we used the smartphone to draw some conclusions. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Mi Max 2 is meant for users who love large screens and a massive battery to support their habits of consuming video content. The Mi Max 2 has a 6.44-inch screen and is priced at Rs 16,999. Let's find out what the massive budget phone has to offer. What We Love The Mi Max 2 has a beautiful metal unibody in tandem with other Xiaomi smartphones and has the same characteristics as its predecessor. There is no camera bump and has the fingerprint sensor at the back for easy accessibility. Being a massive smartphone, the placement of the fingerprint reader is within reach and aids in unlocking the device without any problems. It has curves in the right places to make the smartphone fit perfectly in your palm. The smartphone may have a 6.44-inch screen, but the smartphone feels big enough to be considered compact for its size when in hand. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The marquee feature of the smartphone is obviously the screen and the display on the Mi Max 2 is just wow. For a phone that does not cost as much as other large screen phones, Xiaomi has done a great job at keeping the colours very vivid. In order to consume video content, you need to have good speakers to hear audio. The smartphone has two stereo speakers to give that extra crisp and warm audio. In fact, when I use the smartphone to watch videos in my bathroom (we all do it), I do not need earphones since the clarity of the audio is good enough to keep me engrossed. The smartphone performs well when it comes to daily usage. We experienced no such glitches or lag while browsing the internet or trying to use basic functionalities. The Mi Max 2 has Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 processor which made the experience very fluid and intuitive. The chipset was coupled with 4GB of RAM that is more than enough to watch videos and play games without any glitches. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Mi Max 2 boasts of a massive battery and rightfully so. It has a 5,300 mAh battery that easily lasts up to 2 days. Of course, if you watch videos for hours you can expect the smartphone to last 1 full day. The massive battery also acts as a safety net so that you can keep watching videos for a long time without having to charge the phone every few hours. The Mi Max 2 also comes with a USB-C port that aides in faster charging times. What Can Be Improved Being a massive smartphone, you can expect it to cause a little discomfort when it's in your pocket. Being my personal opinion, the smartphone is not easy to carry in your front pocket due to the massive body. If you wear skinny jeans or even normal jeans, you're better off storing the smartphone in your back pocket. The Mi Max 2 has a 12-megapixel primary camera which did not meet up to Xiaomi's standards in our opinion. When comparing other Xiaomi smartphones to the Mi Max 2, we definitely think that the camera needs to be improved. The smartphone would often over-expose images and even struggle to autofocus for macro shots. Low-light photography is also not dependable often leaving images with a lot of noise and grain. Having said that, the manual mode let us take some amazing shots and you can have a look below to draw your own conclusions: © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Final Say © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is a great device if you love to consume video content. The affordable price of the Mi Max 2 makes it the only smartphone in the category to offer such a large screen. The Mi Max 2 caters to a niche that may not appeal to everyone but still does the job it is meant for. If you love photography and want a budget smartphone, we would recommend the Red Note 4 instead of Mi Max 2. In my honest opinion, the Mi Max 2 would make a great secondary device to watch content and play games but would impractical to use every day as it won't even fit my front pocket. Having said that, it is still easier to use the Mi Max 2 over a tablet and is perfect if you travel a lot.

  7. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been voicing his concerns about Artificial Intelligence (AI) on Twitter and recently said that people should be more concerned about the upcoming technology threat than the risk posed by escalating tensions between U.S. and North Korea. "If you're not concerned about AI safety, you should be. Vastly more risk than North Korea," Musk tweeted on Friday. Musk was talking in reference to his nonprofit start-up, OpenAi, which managed to defeat several of the world's best video game players. Musk had called for the regulation of AI in the past and tweeted saying “by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it's too late.” If you're not concerned about AI safety, you should be. Vastly more risk than North Korea. https://t.co/2z0tiid0lc">pic.twitter.com/2z0tiid0lc — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/896166762361704450">August 12, 2017 OpenAI first ever to defeat world's best players in competitive eSports. Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/896163163581825025">August 12, 2017 Nobody likes being regulated, but everything (cars, planes, food, drugs, etc) that's a danger to the public is regulated. AI should be too. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/896169801277517824">August 12, 2017 He continued to say that the heightened tensions between North Korea and the U.S. are not as dangerous as compared to threats AI can pose in the future. The communist regime has continued to test and expand their nuclear program and repeatedly threatened the United States with attacks. North Korea revealed earlier this week that the country can now fit nuclear warheads on missiles. (c) Reuters A Facebook research team had to recently shut down an AI system (http://www.mensxp.com/technology/social-media/38580-facebook-pulls-plug-on-artificial-intelligence-system.html) which went out of control as the two bots invented their own language to communicate with each other. Facebook was forced to shut down the system as the research team could not decipher the communications and could not control the two bots' interaction.
  8. Egyptians look at the crash of two trains that collided near the Khorshid station in Egypt's coastal city of Alexandria, Egypt, August 11, 2017. REUTERS/Osama Nageb Two trains collided in Egypt's coastal city of Alexandria on Friday killing 42 people and injuring 133 others, the health ministry said. A witness said the trains rose into the air "forming a pyramid" as they slammed into each other just outside a suburban station in the Mediterranean port city. President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ordered an inquiry into the crash, which left bodies strewn on the ground as rescue teams worked to pull the dead and injured from the wrecked carriages. The collision at 2:15 PM (5:15 PM PST), near Khorshid station at the edge of Alexandria, derailed the engine of one train and two cars of the other, the Egyptian Railway Authority said. A railroad switching error was the most likely cause, a security source said without giving further details. Transport Minister Hisham Arafat said "human error" led to the collision but did not elaborate. "In order to avoid it, we have to develop the infrastructure," he told state television. A project was under way to improve the area's facilities, but such plans took time and money, he said. Hoda ? a resident ? was standing on her rooftop when she saw the trains plough into each other. "They rose in the air forming a pyramid when they collided," she said. "I started to scream from the rooftops for people to grab some sheets and run." "The train I was riding was going very quickly," said passenger Moumen Youssef. "I found myself on the floor. When we came out, we found four train cars crushed and a lot of people on the ground." Egyptians have long complained that successive governments failed to enforce basic safeguards for the railways. A string of crashes have further inflamed public anger over the antiquated transport network. In 2012, a train rammed into a school bus south of Cairo and killed 50 people, mostly children. In Egypt's worst train disaster, a fire tore through seven carriages of an overcrowded passenger train in 2002, killing at least 360 people.
  9. source: Reuters CAIRO: Two trains collided in Egypt's coastal city of Alexandria on Friday killing 36 people and injuring more than 100 others, a health ministry spokesman said. The crash at 2:15 p.m near the suburban Khorshid station on the route to Cairo, derailed the engine of one train and two cars of the other, the Egyptian Railway Authority said. A railroad switching error was the most likely cause of the collision, a security source said. He gave no further details. State newspaper al-Ahram said 36 bodies had arrived at hospital morgues in Alexandria province. Public prosecutor Nabil Sadek ordered an urgent investigation, it said. A medical official told state TV some wounded people were still stuck in the trains. Footage on state television showed dozens of people crowding around the damaged train cars, with bodies strewn on the ground. "The train I was riding was going very quickly," said passenger Moumen Youssef. "I found myself on the floor. When we came out, we found four train cars crushed and a lot of people on the ground." In 2012, 50 people - mostly children - were killed when a train crashed into a school bus south of Cairo, further inflaming public anger at authorities over Egypt's antiquated transport network.
  10. ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Thursday added four more members in his federal cabinet. With the addition of four new members, the cabinet tally has reached 47. The new members include two federal ministers and two state ministers. According to reports, Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz leaders Daniyal Aziz and Mumtaz Tarrar will be given the portfolio of federal ministers, while, Dostain Domki and Ayaz Shah Sherazi will work as a minister of state. Earlier, on August 4, President Mamnoon Hussain took the oath of a 43-member cabinet at Aiwan-e-Saddar. It is said that Domki and Tarrar were not able to take the oath that day because of reaching late at the formal ceremony while Sherazi was out of Islamabad. It was also said that Aziz did not attend the oath taking ceremony to express his reservation on being appointed as state minister. The new federal cabinet now includes 28 federal ministers and 19 state ministers.
  11. The desperation to get jacked is real. Every dude wants to get huge but more than half resort to steroid use and a lot just simply get fat. It's easier to drop fat but it is way more difficult to build a substantial amount of muscle. With this piece, I'll tell you about the lies and realities of bulking. Before You Proceed, Read This 1. The natural muscle building process is a damn slow process. 2. The human body has a limit to pack on muscle mass. You cannot look jacked like those roided bodybuilders and fitness models you see on your Instagram feed. 3. Though you need to be in a caloric surplus in a bulking phase, you cannot always hog on junk to shoot up your calorie intake. The Science of Bulking If I have to explain bulking in a precise manner, it would be training on a progressive overload principle, eating nutrient dense foods and taking optimum rest for effective muscle growth. This trio together is called the muscle hypertrophy tripod. However, the basic thumb rule to gain muscle is to train while in a caloric surplus environment. Muscles are an active tissue and require a constant energy supply to sustain them. Moreover, when it comes to adding new muscle fibers, the body needs a solid energy support compiling of all essential amino acids and glucose. The carbohydrates we eat provide the required glucose that replenishes the liver and muscle glycogen. On the other hand, the protein sources we ingest provide us with essential amino acids that we need for repair and recovery. Carbohydrates, Insulin and Muscle Growth In order to build muscle, a high carb diet has been proven more effective as compared to a high fat diet. The logic lies in the insulin activation that happens when we consume carbohydrates. When the blood glucose rises due to the consumption of carbs, our pancreas secretes insulin in the blood. Insulin being a carrier hormone ferries blood glucose along with essential amino acids to the depleted glycogen stores. This process triggers protein synthesis in muscles which is the key to building and repairing muscle fibers. How Long Should We Go On A Bulking Phase? © tnation Firstly, if you are natural, stop bulking like enhanced athletes. They go over a bulking phase for just 2-4 months and then start their shredding. People need to understand that those lifters are on drugs and their protein synthesis is almost 4 times faster than a natural lifter's. Therefore, if you are a natural lifter and you want to see some good muscle mass, you should go for a planned bulk phase for at least 8-10 months. No doubt, when you bulk up, you will put on some fat mass too. In an ideal bulking phase the ratio of fat and muscle gain should be either in a 1:1 ratio or 2:1 ratio where 2 signifies the muscle mass. If you gain a lot of fat mass with negligible muscle, then you need to rectify your nutrition. How Much Muscle You Can Put Naturally? © Thinkstock/Getty Images Research suggests if you are blessed with great genetics, then you can expect up to 1 pound of muscle gain in a month. However, an average lifter can expect up to 0.25 to 0.5 pounds of muscle gain in a month. If you are gaining over 3 pounds on a weighing scale every month, chances are you are putting too much of fat mass instead of muscle mass. What Should My Diet Looks Like? © YouTube Well, every individual has a different calorie requirement based on his BMR, fitness background and so on. However, if still I have to lay a rough blue print to bulk, it should be protein: 2x per kilogram of body weight, carbs should be 2-3x per kilogram of body weight (mainly from complex sources) and healthy fats should be 0.5x per kilogram of body weight. What About The Workout? Nevertheless, all your compound lifts like squats, deadlifts, military press and bench press are your best friends when it comes to boosting your testosterone naturally. Your goal should be to lift heavy with proper form and train intense in order to break maximum muscle fibers at gym. Higher the muscle breakdown, better your are chances at packing on more size. But this doesn't mean that you have to spend hours pushing weights. That's counterproductive. Keep the intensity high and time your workout to under an hour. Rest And Sleep The third leg of this tripod is rest and sleep. Your body recovers and grows while you sleep as the growth hormone spikes are at their highest in deep sleep. Plan your training intelligently, if you try to go beast mode every damn day of the week, you will burn out.

  12. Dog owners who walk their pets outside are more likely to have regular exercise habits, regardless of weather, according to a new study. Regular dog walkers were more active on days with cold, rainy weather - and on days with the worst weather conditions, they had 20 percent higher activity levels and were more active for 30 minutes per day, compared to people who didn?t have dogs. ?As we get older, we decline in the amount of physical activity we get, and we tend to be less active at the time in our lives when it?s best to be active,? said study author Andy Jones of the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK. Jones and colleagues analysed data collected as part of a large study of community-dwelling adults ages 40 to 79 in Norfolk, UK. Overall, the average age was around 70, and 57 percent were female. Participants wore accelerometers to record their daily physical activity and sedentary behaviour. They also answered questions about environmental conditions, age, education, gender, health status and pet ownership. Among the more than 3,100 study subjects, 18 percent owned dogs, and two-thirds of those walked their dogs at least once a day. Regular dog walkers were consistently more active, regardless of weather and environmental conditions, and those who reported good health were more likely to be dog owners who walked their dogs regularly. Overall, daily activity was lower on days with rain, colder temperatures and shorter daylight hours. On dry days, however, regular dog walkers still got outside, even if it was cold. In fact, on average, regular dog walkers were more active on the coldest days than non-regular dog walkers or non-dog-owners were on the warmest days. Regular dog-walkers were also more active on the shortest days than non-walkers and non-owners were on the longest days. ?It?s no surprise that dog walkers are more active, but we were surprised by how big the difference is,? Jones said. ?If we could achieve that level of activity with everybody, it would go a long way in dealing with problems of obesity and aging.? Importantly, even dog-owners who don?t walk their dogs regularly are less sedentary than people without dogs, pointed out Ann Toohey of the University of Calgary in Canada. Toohey, who wasn?t involved with this study, studies aging, dog-walking and neighborhood communities. ?Various aspects of taking care of a dog, such as letting them in and outside, feeding them, playing with them, grooming them and cleaning up after them, may help to explain this,? she told Reuters Health by email. ?I think we need to take note and explore further the benefits of pets in daily living.? ?Taking the time to engage in physical activity has important health benefits, and walking is recommended because it is low-cost and can be done alone or with others,? said Angela Curl, who researches environment, the human-animal bond, and older adults? physical health at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Curl, who wasn?t involved with this study, told Reuters Health by email, ?Dog owners have a visual reminder to get up and exercise that can provide the motivation to walk. Non-dog owners can find alternative ways to engage in physical activity during inclement weather, such as walking indoors.?
  13. Flood victims, including a patient needing kidney dialysis, await an airlift from a rooftop in Abiyana village, Gujarat after monsoon floods hit. PHOTO: AFP Severe monsoon flooding has killed 213 people in western India, an official said on Sunday, as rescuers continue to sift through villages devastated by torrential rains. The death toll in Gujarat state jumped from Wednesday?s total of 123 to 213, the government said, as waters receded from low-lying areas, allowing rescue workers to reach remote spots. Overwhelmed authorities, which expect the toll to rise further, said they had struggled to cope with the number of bodies needing identification and postmortems, resulting in delays in confirming the latest deaths. An official at the state?s emergency control room explained that ?only after a postmortem is conducted we can officially confirm death of a person?. ?Since many bodies were found, postmortems took time, hence the sudden jump in numbers,? the official, who requested anonymity, said. The rise comes after rescuers plucked 25 bodies, including 17 members of one family, on Wednesday from two submerged villages in the hard-hit Banaskantha district of Gujarat. Rescue workers have moved close to 130,000 people from low-lying, dangerous areas as helicopters and boats continue to try to reach those still stranded. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who flew over the devastation in Gujarat last week, used his radio show on Sunday to reassure flood-hit states that all help was being provided to them. Soldiers bring to safely stranded flood victims in Khariya village, Gujarat.

In Assam at least 77 people have been killed and a state-wide emergency relief operation has been underway since April. Tens of thousands of hectares of crops have been destroyed.
  14. Yemeni fighter loyal to the Saudi-backed government holds a rocket launcher on his shoulder at a position taken from Huthi rebels northwest of the central city of Taiz, on April 20, 2017 PHOTO: AFP ADEN: More than 40 troops and rebels have been killed in several days of clashes between Yemen´s Saudi-backed army and insurgents allied with Iran near the Red Sea port of Mokha, officials said Sunday. Fighting has intensified around the Khaled Ibn al-Walid military base east of Mokha since government forces backed by a Saudi-led coalition seized it from the Huthi rebels last week. Sixteen Huthis and seven soldiers were killed in overnight clashes and air raids outside Mokha, according to military officials and witnesses at hospitals in the area. Twenty Yemeni soldiers were also killed in a rebel strike on the Khaled base in Taiz province, around 40 kilometres (25 miles) east of Mokha, on Thursday, a military official there said. The port of Mokha on the Red Sea, a key waterway for international trade and imports, is under army control. The Saudi-led coalition, which includes the United Arab Emirates, on Saturday said the Huthis had attacked the port with a remote-controlled boat carrying explosives. No casualties were reported in the attack, which the rebels claimed hit a battleship from the United Arab Emirates. The coalition also said a ballistic missile fired by the Huthis was shot down on Thursday near Mecca in Saudi Arabia, the site of the annual Muslim Hajj pilgrimage that falls next month. Backed by the coalition, the government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi has battled the Huthi rebels for control of the impoverished country for two years. More than 8,000 people have been killed and millions displaced in the conflict, which has pushed the country to the brink of famine. A cholera outbreak has also claimed the lives of more than 1,800 people since April, with 400,000 suspected cases across the country, according to the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross. The United Nations last week warned 80 percent of Yemen´s children were in desperate need of aid in what the organisation has described as the "largest humanitarian crisis in the world".
  15. ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has sent notices to over 2,000 people who declared receiving expensive gifts in their wealth statements in the last fiscal year. FBR officials believe the untaxed ?gifts? could have been used to launder money and evade taxes. Sources in the FBR said that three people received gifts of Rs1 billion or more, eight received gifts between Rs500 million and Rs1 billion or more, 97 received gifts between Rs100 million and Rs200 million and 280 people received gifts between Rs50 million and Rs100 million. Moreover, FBR officials said 2,000 people received gifts between Rs10 million and Rs50 million in the outgoing fiscal year.
  16. Family members of detainees line up to enter the federal court just before a hearing to consider a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of Iraqi nationals facing deportation, in Detroit, Michigan, US, June 21, 2017. REUTERS/Rebecca Cook DETROIT: A federal judge in Michigan on Monday halted the deportation of more than 1,400 Iraqi nationals detained during immigration sweeps across the United States last month, the latest legal victory for the detainees in a closely watched case. US District Judge Mark Goldsmith granted a preliminary injunction requested by lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union, who argued the immigrants would face persecution in Iraq because they are considered ethnic and religious minorities there. Goldsmith said the injunction provides detainees time to challenge their removal in federal courts. He said many of them faced "a feverish search for legal assistance" after their deportation orders were unexpectedly resurrected by the US government after several years. Goldsmith said the extra time assures "that those who might be subjected to grave harm and possible death are not cast out of this country before having their day in court," Goldsmith wrote in his 34-page opinion and order.

  18. The first episode of game of thrones triggered quite a few fan theories. While Sansa's admiration of Cersei is quite obvious and it has been predicted that she might follow in her dark footsteps, there are some fan theories that really caught us off guard. But one of the best theories so far has been about Ser Jorah, whose glimpse we see in the first episode. © HBO We all remember how Sam stumbles upon information about dragonglass in the book he steals from the library. A hawk-eyed Reddit user Beastmodekait spotted a crucial hint on the page Sam is reading. Dragonglass is mentioned as having healing properties that can cure disease. © HBO Fans also mentioned how Stannis' daughter Shireen was also partially cured of the grey-scale disease and you'd remember they lived at Dragonstone too. Once Jorah is healed, there is another fan theory for his adventures beyond. Reddit user redragebar predicted about Sam helping cure Jorah way before season 7 commenced. Once fully recovered, Jorah will set out for Valyria and help uncover the secrets of Valyrian steel. If you'd recall, Jon Snow is able to kill a White Walker with his Valyrian sword, which means that besides, dragonglass, Valyrian steel can kill White Walkers. © HBO Of course, the Sam and Jorah won't meet for the first time directly in Valyria as the fan theory says. The makers of GOT had another location planned for the event. So, it is actually Ser Jorah and Sam who will find a way to save the seven kingdoms from the White Walkers. Considering Daenerys is already in Dragonstone, it shouldn't take them too long to discover the dragonstone mine. Looks like Ser Jorah will have a much more important role in the coming episodes. We hope to see him in action, and not just as Danerys' sidekick.
  19. Real Madrid's striker Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his second goal during the UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg football match Real Madrid vs FC Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid on April 18, 2017, AFP/Christof Stache LOS ANGELES: Cristiano Ronaldo will remain a Real Madrid player for "the next 2-3 years", coach Zinedine Zidane said Saturday, ending talk the Bernabeu superstar might depart for Manchester United. On the eve of Real's pre-season friendly against United at Santa Clara, California, Zidane spoke in Los Angeles about the 32-year-old Portuguese forward who is currently on vacation. "There has been a lot of talk surrounding Cristiano, that he wanted to go," Zidane acknowledged. "I only believe in one thing ? whenever I've spoken to him, he has been very relaxed. "He's on holiday and he will be back with us on the fifth (of August). I listen, just like everyone else, but the only thing I'm concerned with is what he wants to do with Real Madrid. "He'll be here with us on the fifth and I think he'll stay for the next 2 or 3 years he's got left with us." Real will also play US tune-up matches on Wednesday against Manchester City at Los Angeles and next Saturday against bitter rivals Barcelona in Miami before next month´s scheduled return for Ronaldo. "He's on a very well-deserved holiday after the year we've had," Zidane said. "He has to come back in and we'll look at when he'll get some playing time. I'm sure he'll be ready in no time." After Real's title runs in La Liga and for a second consecutive year in the Champions League, Zidane is confident his club will be ready when the time comes to defend those crowns. "We know what we achieved was incredible and now there are trophies to be played for already on the eighth and we're preparing for that date to start in the best possible fashion," he said in reference to the European Super Cup clash, also against Man United, in Skopje on August 8. "As always, we want to try and win everything we play for. That won't change. This club has the history, we know that winning trophies is what motivates us and we're going to try and do the same this year."

  21. Seated between Senators Dean Heller (R-NV), L, Tim Scott (R-SC), US President Donald Trump meets with Senate Republicans to discuss health care at the White House in Washington, US, July 19, 2017. REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque WASHINGTON: Thirty-two million Americans would lose their health insurance by 2026 if Obamacare is repealed without a replacement, the US Congressional Budget Office reported late on Wednesday as President Donald Trump pushed fellow Senate Republicans to reach an agreement on overhauling the country's health care law. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell planned to hold a vote for a straight repeal of the Affordable Care Act next week after a bill to repeal and replace collapsed on Monday with the Republican party sharply divided. According to the CBO, a nonpartisan office that analyses pending legislation, 17 million Americans would lose health insurance alone in 2018 with a repeal while premiums on individual insurance plans would rise 25 percent next year and double by 2026. Trump told 49 Republican senators at a White House lunch on Wednesday that he wanted more than a straight repeal. After taking a hands-off approach to the healthcare debate last week and suggesting on Tuesday that he was fine with letting Obamacare fail, Trump on Wednesday demanded that senators stay in Washington through their planned August recess until they can find common ground on health care. "We're close. We're very close," Trump said at the start of the meeting. He demanded that lawmakers keep their campaign promises to repeal and replace Obamacare and find a new approach to healthcare. "We can repeal, but we should repeal and replace, and we shouldn?t leave town until this is complete," he said. After the lunch, McConnell said he will go ahead with a vote early next week to begin debate on a repeal of the ACA, former President Barack Obama's signature legislation, despite indications it will fail after the defections on Tuesday of at least three Republican senators. Moderate Republican Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Shelley Moore Capito said they oppose McConnell's plan for a repeal that would take effect in two years, giving Congress time to develop a replacement. All three attended the lunch. With Democrats united in opposition to repeal, McConnell can only lose two votes from Republicans' 52-48 majority in the 100-seat Senate to pass health care legislation.
  22. The US launched its first round of trade talks with China since Donald Trump took office in an unusually blunt manner Wednesday, demanding more "fair, equitable and reciprocal" relationship, with more access to American made goods and services. Noting the more than 200 percent surge in Chinese exports to the United States in the last 15 years, creating a trade deficit of $309 billion last year, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross insisted change was necessary. "If this were just the natural product of free market forces, we could understand it, but it's not," Ross said in the opening ceremony of the one-day meeting between the world's top two economies. "So it is time to rebalance our trade and investment relationship in a more fair, equitable and reciprocal manner." The talks are a continuation of the process undertaken by the previous two administrations, which the Trump administration has rebranded as the US-China Comprehensive Economic Dialogue (CED). Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the talks with the Chinese delegation led by Vice Premier Wang Yang would focus on concrete steps to provide greater access and a "level playing field" for US companies to the world's second largest market. "We need to work together to maximise the benefit for both sides. But this is only possible if there is a more fair and balanced economic relationship between the US and China," Mnuchin said. "It means addressing the imbalances cause by the Chinese intervention in its economy," he said, adding: "A more balanced economic relationship will create prosperity for our two countries and the world." During his campaign, Trump attacked China for unfair trade practices, but his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Florida resort in April prompted a change of rhetoric and the launch of a 100-day economic cooperation plan. That led to specific but narrow achievements, including opening the Chinese market to US beef exports, and pledges to remove barriers to US credit card transactions, credit ratings, and other financial services, including bond underwriting, that were to be concluded prior to Wednesday's talks. Wang said the key point about the meeting is the two countries are "having dialogue, not confrontation." "We don't need to defeat each other in handling differences," he cautioned, stressing that "confrontation will immediately damage the interests of both" countries. Wang quoted a passage from Trump's 2009 business advice book "Think Like a Champion" -- which in turn was quoting industry pioneer Henry Ford -- saying, "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success." "China is ready to work together."
  23. Amazon.com Inc has done away with a controversial clause in its cloud computing contracts that prohibited customers from suing the company over patent infringement, according to an updated version of the Amazon Web Services customer agreement released on Thursday. The so-called ?non-assert? clause had been a point of friction for years for numerous companies that were interested in using Amazon Web Services but were reluctant to trust Amazon with their intellectual property. Amazon Web Services, a cloud computing pioneer, now provides computing and data storage services for a wide variety of customers. It faces growing competition from others including Alphabet Inc's Google and Microsoft Corp. The decision to remove the clause makes Amazon ?appear more user friendly, and it smoothes over a major objection point corporate counsel have been raising,? said Phil Davis, CEO of PhilStockWorld.com, an investment advisory service. Amazon has also introduced a new policy that will protect customers if they are sued for patent infringement over services that run on Amazon Web Services. Microsoft has offered a policy with similar protections since February. Calvin French-Owen, co-founder and CTO of Segment, a customer data management startup in San Francisco that has been an Amazon Web Services customer since May 2011, praised the moves. ?It?s cool that they are willing to defend companies on their platform against patent trolls,? he said.
  24. Babar Awan addresses media in Islamabad ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Babar Awan on Monday remarked that all that is needed for the Supreme Court to adopt the ?Go Nawaz Go? slogan is one more judge?s vote against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. ?Two out of five judges of the Supreme Court already believe PM should be disqualified. If one more judge votes for PM?s disqualification then [we will hear] ?Go Nawaz Go? [chants] from the Supreme Court as well,? he said while speaking to media during the apex court?s hearing of Panama case post-JIT report. Awan asserted that the entire nation has full confidence in the Supreme Court and its proceedings in the high-profile case. ?We trust the Supreme Court. The entire nation, the PTI, the lawyers, everyone stands with the court,? he said, adding that Maryam group has defeated Nawaz Group within PML-N. PTI leader Naeem-ul-Haque reiterated the call for PM?s resignation, calling the PM a ?blemish? on Pakistan?s name. ?PM violated the Constitution and the public?s trust. He lied to the cabinet, his family, and the entire public,? he said. ?The Supreme Court?s decision in the case will be a beacon of guidance for the coming generations,? he added. Panama case: Opposition leaders express confidence in Supreme Court Opposition leaders addressed media outside the apex court prior to the start of the Panama case hearing Opposition leaders expressed confidence in the apex court ahead of the Panama case earlier today. Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid ? one of the petitioners in the original Panama Papers case ? addressed the media saying the entire nation stands behind the apex court. ?I?ll first see what the court says before submitting another petition to disqualify Nawaz Sharif,? he said. PTI?s Shah Mehmood Qureshi said PTI is among other opposition parties that are demanding the resignation of the prime minister. "The government?s strategy since day one has been to delay the proceedings," he said. Jamaat-e-Islami chief Sirajul Haq, one of the petitioners in the case, said there is no hidden agenda here, the nation only wants a corruption-free country. "Nawaz Sharif has to go now, there is no other way. We want no one in Parliament who does not adhere to articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution," he said.
