  1. Former Muttahida Qaumi Movement member Irum Azeem Farooque remarked that the two factions of the political party, Bahadurabad and PIB, can never be one. Photo: Facebook/Irum Azeem Farooque Former Muttahida Qaumi Movement member Irum Azeem Farooque remarked that the two factions of the political party, Bahadurabad and PIB, can never be one. In a video message on social media, Farooque lashed out at Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, the convener of the party?s Bahadurabad faction. She lambasted Siddiqui for the words he used against women while addressing the supporters during party?s 34th foundation day. She claimed that Maqbool would send his marriage proposal to young girls while he was in the United States. ?You said that mahjabeens [women] won?t get tickets ?I just want to let you know that people like me will not return to your party,? she remarked, adding: ?Your [Siddiqui?s] politics is coming to an end. You should be cautious before using such words. What a shame.? Farooque then targeted MQM leader Amir Khan and called him a ?hypocrite? and ?mafia don?. She remarked that Khan rushed to Siddiqui?s aid after his harsh words against women and clarified that the remarks were targeting Irum Azeem Farooque. She further shared that she will reveal what grudge Khan has against her. "When Amir rejoined the party, I did not know him. However, he would make efforts to speak to me.... he would stare at me. I even filed a complaint against him with Haider Abbas." Addressing Amir, she said: "I have suffered through all of this silently but not anymore. "You all are engaging in character assassination because you have nothing else to do. I think this party will also be banned due to some people," she added. "You should all be ashamed of yourselves."
  2. Awami National Party President Asfandyar Wali Khan says his party has never reached a compromise even in the face of hardships. Photo: Geo News file KARACHI: ANP President Asfandyar Wali Khan on Monday said that his party has never reached a compromise even in the face of hardships and problems. In a press release, issued by the Awami National Party (ANP), Wali said that members of the party and its affiliates are not allowed to link their personal opinions with the party's viewpoint. Wali also noted that members of the ANP, regardless of their stature in the party, were not allowed to participate in the activities of any other organisation or political party. The party president stated that ANP will continue its efforts to resolve the problems faced by Pakhtuns by highlighting them in the parliament. The press release further said that the party's clear stance on national issues is the reason why it is the most popular political party among the Pakhtuns and a political power to reckon. Wali also said that his party will continue to advocate the rights of Pakhtuns on every forum.
  3. At first, the sight of the alleged Whatsapp conversations between Mohammad Shami and multiple women leaked on the social media seemed nothing more than a sick prank, insinuating a potential hand of trolls who thrive on throwing dirt on popular individuals. But, soon, the doubts subsided when Shami's wife Hasin Jahan was seen opening the can of worms during her interviews to multiple media outlets. The allegations levelled against Shami by own wife included infidelity, domestic violence, torture and pretty much everything there was to sabotage the reputation of a cricketer of his calibre. To top it all, Jahan has also accused Shami of cheating his country after she claimed her husband took money from a Pakistani girl named Alisbah over the insistence of England-based businessman Mohammed Bhai. © Instagram And, just like that, one of India's premier bowlers, a cricket icon and an inspiration to the youth became a pantomime villain. A personal matter that, ideally, should have dealt with behind closed curtains has sadly become a matter of great public debate, enticing media scrutiny. With the police investigation is still in progress, it's almost ludicrous to brand Shami as the perpetrator or calling his wife's claims baseless. We don't know if he really tortured, abused or even cheated on her, but it's just too hard to overlook his never-ending support to his wife in the past, at least on the social media. © Instagram Every time an Islamic zealot took aim at Jahan or their daughter with their moral policing drive, Shami stood up for his family and gave a befitting reply. At a time when traditionalists, in the name of religion, criticised Jahan for her choice of clothing, Shami rallied behind her and made the naysayers eat their own words. And, at the end of it all, it's just hard to wrap our heads around the fact that Shami would mean harm to his wife, let alone assault or cheat on her. Having said that, there's is no doubt that Shami's social media activity makes his case stronger, but what it does say a thing or two about his character, reflecting the kind of person he really is. And, maybe that's why someone as close to Shami as his former captain MS Dhoni had no qualms in throwing his weight behind the Indian seamer in these troubled times. © Instagram “As far as I know, Shami is a great human being. He cannot cheat his wife and country. This is Shami's personal matter and we should not make any comment on it,” Dhoni said in an exclusive interview with Jansatta.com. Apart from MSD, Shami also found support from another World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev who questioned Jahan's allegations and asked as to why she didn't voice her concerns earlier. "I refuse to believe the allegations that have been levelled by Shami's wife. If she knew about match-fixing then why didn't she report it earlier?" Dev told ABP News. © Instagram "When the relationship was fine, why was she silent then? There is an investigation team. Let them do their work. If Shami has done something like this then it is unacceptable and disgraceful. Shami is a brilliant hardworking cricketer. I agree that his personal relationship is in trouble currently but such kinds of allegations by his wife are nasty and sickening until proven," he added. Guilty or not, the explosive revelations by Jahan already seems to have hampered Shami's career with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) putting his central contract on hold amid the investigation. On the other hand, the Indian cricket fans who once cherished Shami's exploits on the field, are now deeming him unfit as a role model. The case also brings back the memories of the sensational Tiger Woods controversy that saw one of world's highest-paid athlete shot to the ground, losing pretty much everything he had or ever accomplished. Ever since his admission to infidelity, Woods have never been the same. The US golfer who once looked invincible winning one Major after another, is today struggling to stay afloat on the professional circuit.
  4. There is not a single person in the world who wouldn't want to be friends with a person like Elon Musk. It's safe to say that he is a crazy billionaire whose mind works at a completely different tangent, and the epic things that cross his mind every day are hard to keep up with. Now, if I can just figure out how to attach those to a really big shark ... — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 11, 2018 But if you are lucky enough to be friends with him, what's the ideal thing to do? Collaborate with him and create something entirely breathtaking. That's exactly what the creator of HBO's 'Westworld' Jonathan Nolan did with his close friend Elon. With Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy, creators of @westworldonhbo @sxsw. Just played the highlight reel Jonah did of the Falcon Heavy and Starman launch. Next two posts ... A post shared by Elon Musk (@elonmusk) on Mar 10, 2018 at 3:40pm PST At the recent South by Southwest Conference, Elon crashed the show's panel to talk about space and mars and travelling to space, basically all that Elon is best at. He joined the creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy to first talk about all those things and then, to take us by surprise. Once again, something Elon is best at. © 512Tech After giving a rather inspirational short speech, he went on and unveiled a small project that he and Jonathan have been working on: A short trailer for the Falcon Heavy launch. © Twitter The two-minute trailer is set to David Bowie's song because umm, obviously. It offers some never seen before footage of what all went in before and during the launch. © YouTube/Space X Right from the prep to the failures and of course the world-famous cherry-red Tesla, we get a look at the breathtaking launch from a new and different perspective. © YouTube/Space X And since this trailer was created by two extremely talented people, it is bound to give you Goosebumps. Have a look: While unveiling the trailer, Nolan who was there during the launch said, "There was an incredible spirit there that day, something I hadn't felt in an awfully long time. So we tried to capture that essence—to record it and spread it. And the only way I know how to share that feeling is with a trailer. It's not for TV or a movie; it's for the next part of the human story." Pretty sure if we were in Nolan's place we would have felt the same. But nevertheless, this beautiful trailer does make us feel that we were, in fact, present at the launch and they couldn't have done a better job.
  5. Before we give out any details from their grand fairytale wedding, let's first congratulate Rochelle Rao and Keith Sequeira, who are now officially married.

  6. There are many reasons why you would end up in a scenario with a wet phone. Washing machines, accidental pot drops, the Indian monsoon or even a friend accidentally or intentionally shoving you into the pool are some of the probable reasons. We often fumble with our phones in the bathroom or sometimes forget that we left it on the sink. Some smartphones are water-resistant which is often mistaken for being waterproof. However, you are reading this for a reason and we urge you not to panic. You can follow these steps to save your valuable smartphone before you decide to get a new phone or have it replaced. We will be listing down a few things you should do and not do if you want to save your cherished smartphone. 1. The first thing you need to do is immediately remove it from water as quickly as possible. The longer you leave it in there, the more water will seep through components and cracks. There are some things you need to do right away and some things you need to avoid doing right after. 2. No matter what, do not try to switch on your smartphone. This is the primary reason for short circuits, leaving your smartphone unusable. Do not press any buttons, shake or bang the phone. It will probably cause the water to shift further into the device. (c) YouTube 3. Immediately try to pull out the battery if you can. This can minimise damage to the smartphone and prevent short circuits. Opening up an iPhone or any unibody device can be tricky, so we advise you look at some YouTube videos before you decide to open up your smartphone. (c) YouTube 4. Remove any protective casing if you have one on your smartphone and remove your SIM card and microSD cards as well. (c) Pinterest 5. Dry off everything with a dry towel or any dry cloth. Make sure you dry up the exterior of your smartphone as well. Make sure you dab the cloth as water can drain into other openings. If the water damage is more intense than expected, use a vacuum to suck out the water. Just make sure no peripherals are attached to the smartphone before you vacuum it. (c) YouTube 6. After you've carried out these steps, you need to dry up all the moisture within your device. You can either put the smartphone in a bowl/ziplock full of dry uncooked rice. Rice has hygroscopic properties which can absorb moisture. You can even use silica packets (like the ones used in shoeboxes) for better results. 7. You have to be patient and let the rice or the silica packets do their job. You need to leave your phone at a dry spot for at least 24 to 48 hours before you can fire it up again. You need to give your smartphone enough time for it to dry up otherwise it can lead to a short circuit. 8. After you've waited long enough, try turning your phone on. If it doesn't switch on then try charging your phone. If your battery refuses to charge, then the battery may be damaged. Make sure you have it checked by a professional to consider having it replaced. 9. If your smartphone gets switched on and works like it used to, keep an eye on it for unusual activity. Play some music to check if the speakers are working and make a call to check the condition of the mic. Make sure the touchscreen responds as it was before. Is your warranty still valid? (c) Pinterest Make sure you find the liquid contact indicator (LCI). You can look up for your specific model on Google and if the sticker has turned red, it means that your handset might not be covered under warranty. Manufacturers place this sticker so that it turns red when it comes in contact with water and can review your handset with a litmus test. If you have any other tips that may help a wet smartphone, please feel free to post your methods in the comments section below.
  7. LAHORE: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif said on Thursday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan only falsely accuses other people but when he receives a notice, he neither responds nor appears for legal proceedings. The CM Punjab was addressing a press conference in Lahore, where he said that Imran is always placing false accusations and misguides the youth. ?Imran has presented Faisal Subhan as a mythical character,? said the CM Punjab in relation to the CEO of Capital Engineering, who was probed for corruption allegations in the Multan Metro Bus project. Shehbaz Sharif said that except for the honourable judges, no one can tell who is lying, adding that the PTI chief has accused him for the fifth time. Shehbaz Sharif said that Imran in his allegation said that Subhan confessed before Chinese officials, but a Chinese delegation never came to Pakistan. The PTI Chairman Imran Khan earlier had said that Subhan confessed to the Chinese regulatory authority investigating corruption charges in the Multan Metro project that Shehbaz and his family received hefty kickbacks in their overseas accounts. Multan Metro case: Punjab govt says Faisal Subhan created fake company 'Subhan created a fake company by colluding with a man named Aijaz' The PTI chief had called the statement of Capital Engineering CEO?s statement ?Panama of Shehbaz Sharif?. Imran had also alleged that following his confession, Subhan went missing and the PTI will initiate a campaign to recover him. The PTI chief also requested to the Supreme Court to make metro and Orange Line projects contracts public.
  8. Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah. ? Geo News FILE LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Saturday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has never been able to substantiate allegations he levelled against others. Speaking to media here, the provincial minister said that they level false allegations and run away, adding that Imran accused Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif of involvement in corruption worth Rs27 billion through 'frontman', but the PTI chief could not substantiate his allegations. "Imran put all past budgets into Shehbaz's account," Rana said, adding that "whoever is telling all this to him is either trying to befool the PTI chairman or Imran himself is becoming a fool." Imran Khan chastises bureaucracy for allegedly serving only Sharif's agenda Khan told journalists, instead of serving the country bureaucrats are serving the Sharif family. In response to Imran's allegations of allotment of plots worth millions to Ahad Cheema by Shehbaz Sharif, the minister challenged the PTI chief to prove allotment of just one plot, and demanded him to apologise to the Punjab CM and the nation, in case of failure to substantiate his allegations. He said that there is no example of silly things spoken against civil servants today. "Civil servants cannot issue statements legally and constitutionally. Career officers have worked honestly throughout their lives." Rana further accused Imran of misleading the nation, adding, "Cheema has presented complete record of purchase of 32 kanal land." Regretting the use of such language against civil servants, he said that he apologises to them on behalf of the Punjab government, Muslim League-Nawaz and other political parties. Commenting on Multan Metro Bus project, the minister said the Punjab government conducted thorough investigations pertaining to the project and a case was formally lodged against individuals involved in a fraud.
  9. It is true that life cannot go on without you lying from time to time, but there are certain situations where you can not afford to lie. If you lie in your relationship, you will be investing in something which is eventually going to break and if you are lying on your job application, then you will keep living in fear of being exposed. Such lies can be poisonous to anyone and take a toll on one's health and it's better to learn from what the wise have said. Here are a few situations where lying is the worst option you can choose, hence choose your lies wisely. 1. Feeling Low At Work © Thinkstock This one is simple. If you are not feeling well, then there is no use sulking about it. Take the rest you need and don't force your body to suffer, as it will only make the pain or situation worse. In some cases, you can choose to work from home, but the important thing is learning when to not exert yourself pointlessly. 2. Your Feelings With Your Partner. © Thinkstock Whether you feel that your love for your partner is fading away, or there is a bridge you cannot gap, then you should not stop yourself from expressing your feelings to your partner without any hesitation. Let them know the truth and give them space and time to take the next step. It is their right to know the truth. If you lie, you both suffer and if you get the courage to speak, you free yourself from a huge burden and that's a good start. 3. Your Physical Appearance © Thinkstock You could have a large forehead, be dark skinned or look small or thin, but you should be always proud of your appearance. If you can't accept yourself for who you are, then how can you expect anyone else to? It is your peace of mind and confidence in your body that makes all the difference. If you are lying on social media or tinder due to this fear, then think of how cheated people will feel when they discover that it was not the real you and you broke their trust from the beginning. 4. Faking Fun At A Party © Thinkstock It's no use wasting your time when you are free and not enjoying. Going to a party just for the sake of it is simply a waste of your time and makes you feel alone, even though you might be surrounded by a whole lot of strangers. If you like reading a book and sipping your coffee, then do that instead of trying to make yourself feel included in the crowd. 5. Your Mental Health © Thinkstock No one is ever perfect and everybody faces some kind of problem at some point in their life. They may seem happier today but you do not know their past. If you know you are going through any kind of depression or stress then acknowledge it and don't hide from it. Remember, problems are solved when you summon the courage to face them and not when you try to run away from them, although you never can. 6. Anything You Share With Your Doctor © Thinkstock If you smoke pot, drink excessively or do anything that is affecting your health, and you then decide to hide it from your doctor, then my friend you are not solving anything but only inviting more trouble. A doctor is not a wizard who will know all your problems automatically. If there is something wrong with you, don't shy to tell it to your parents or doctor, as they are the ones who are really trying to help you. When you address the problem out loud, you then strengthen your willpower to step away from that addiction. 7. Your Application Resume © Thinkstock Photoshopping your offer letter or your last salary statement is one of the top-rated scams that job applicants are being accused of these days. There are certain agencies which are outsourced to the companies to have a proper background check on the information you provide to any company. If you lie there and are caught later, would you be able to tolerate the embarrassment of being called a fraud and then fired from your position? 8. A Mistake You Made At Work © Thinkstock We are all human and we all make mistakes but only a few are strong enough to admit the error they make at work. If by chance you get indulged in some wrongdoing or make a mistake, then whatever position you are at, you should never step back from taking the responsibility of your doing. It takes a man to admit a mistake, and ones who try to hide away are cowards and a good company is not built of cowards.
  10. There are certain things in life which we know we should keep to ourselves, but we still cannot resist and blurt it out to someone, and what follows is regret. If you are doing so quite frequently, then you are probably not learning from your mistakes or are consciously unaware of your such indulgences. Here are some evergreen rules you should live by if you want to live a life with lesser counts of regrets. 1. Your Salary Or How Much You Earn © Thinkstock/Getty Images It is common sense to never share how much you earn with anyone else, especially with not with your colleagues. If you are carelessly sharing this information, it could be misused by other people and you might end up having a quarrel with your manager over this. It is none of their business to know how much you earn and thus you should always keep it to yourself. If you are sharing this information with your friends then you are inviting people to borrow money from you, which mind does not end well in many cases. You are allowing them to have an eye on your hard earned money and if you are the person who can not say no, then you will be in big trouble, my friend. 2. Your Weaknesses © Thinkstock/Getty Images No matter how close someone maybe to you but if you are sharing your weakness with them, then there is a huge probability they will tend to use it as a weapon against you to make you feel low when you have an argument with them in the future. Won't you then regret telling them in the first place? It is not their fault but yours which can ruin any relationship. 3. Your Good Deeds © Thinkstock/Getty Images If you are helping someone in need than don't boast about it all the time. If you do so, you look like a person who is always bragging about himself and how good he is. Frankly speaking, it doesn't feel good and it doesn't look good as well. You decrease the value of your good deed as soon as you start boasting about it to everyone out there. 4. Your Long-Term Goals And Plans © MensXP Once you disclose what you wish to achieve well before evening embarking on a journey, it often comes as a journey you never take. This happens primarily because of two reasons: As soon as you put that idea into someone else's head, and that fool shares it with another person, a cycle of rumors on which you have no control upon begins. Your mind starts conceiving that you have already traveled the journey without actually making any real-life progress towards it. Real obstacles appear when you begin walking on the real path, and it's then when you feel the heat of that exponential peer pressure you had mistakenly built. Now that friend or cousin of yours appears no better than a taunting audience when you fail to live by the promise you had made to yourself. 5. Your Family Issues © Thinkstock/Getty Images Your family concerns should not be the dinner time gossip topic for anyone else. If you are sharing it with anyone and everyone you meet, then you are actually not trying to find a solution, but just craving for their sympathy. What will happen next is they may discuss it with someone else and it suddenly becomes the talk of the town. Would you like that? If not that, you may get wrong advice from someone who does not know your relationship that well with that person. Only share it with someone who you know is very close to you and will keep it a secret for you. 6. Your Unkind Past © Pexels Past is past and there is no point always whining about it to ruin your present and future. You can never change your past then why allow it to destroy your present as well. It is just an unhealthy habit that most of the unsuccessful and unhappy people have in common. You need to forgive yourself and others as well and move forward in life. That is the only suitable option if you want to keep growing.

Justice Khosa made the remarks while heading a three-member bench hearing a contempt case. He observed further that several statements are being attributed to the apex court these days that were not made by the judges. Addressing Additional Attorney General (AAG) Amir Rehman during the hearing, Justice Khosa inquired if he has read the Panama Papers judgment and if it includes the use of these terms for Nawaz. The AAG replied that he has read the verdict and confirmed that it does not use these terms for the former prime minister. Justice Khosa observed that during the contempt hearing against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Senator Nehal Hashmi, the court had responded to Hashmi?s remarks that ?we will not let them live on this land? by stating that the Sicilian Mafia used to murder judges? children. Justice Khosa remarked further that the Supreme Court asked if a smuggler, killer, their or robber can head a political party, adding that certain comments of the bench are played up by the media. He remarked further that comments not uttered by the bench should not be attributed to it, adding that opinion should not be printed as news. Justice Khosa headed the five-member bench that disqualified Nawaz in its July 28 judgment in the Panama Papers case. In several public rallies following his disqualification, Nawaz and other party leaders have criticised the use of the terms ?Godfather? and ?Sicilian Mafia? for the former prime minister.
  12. Growing up on a generous staple of larger-than-life Yash Raj Productions fuelled Bollywood romances and Disney fairytales, the one universal lie that all of us ended up consuming was that love is a person. We blindly believed that we'd be on the path to traffic-free, long-lasting, true love if we ended up bumping into the “one”. In our heads back then, “the one” wasn't just a mere person; they were our key to a life filled with love. Since then, we've been conditioned to looking at love from the prism of people, convinced that true love would happen to us only if we met the one. And, we'd never stop looking. At pubs, cafes, concerts or at parties, we'd keep an eye out, desperate hoping to lock it with that one person who'd think the world of us, and wouldn't want anything more than spending the rest of their lives with us. Once we met the “one', our lives would be a classic case of happily-ever-after. © Yash Raj Films All the energies of our love lives have then been spent on identifying the “one”, who'd be our partner in the truest sense of the word. We've rated all our romantic encounters based on the flaws our partners have had. Like Naina in 'Kal Ho Naa Ho', we've wanted someone like Aman, one who'd promise to love us even after they die. Like Simran in 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge', we want our Raj to have the kind of love for us that had the power of overcoming any hurdle. And, like Anjali in 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', we want our Rahul to realise how much he is in love with us. This wishful thinking renders our existence as a sum of all our heartbreaks; heartbreaks that were a result of our insistence on basing romance on the “one”. What if I told you these heartbreaks were partly, our fault? That the relationships met their end despite us thinking that we've found the one is proof that love is not a person. It never can be. We've been looking at it wrong all this time. What fosters true love instead is timing. People can't be perfect, but timing can be. True love is timing; it is the simplest fact, and yet we're too busy chasing the one to ever understand its significance. The saying, love will come to you when the time is right may seem clichéd, but hidden in it, are bowls full of truth. If your timing isn't right, it doesn't matter how right the person next to you is, something or the other will most definitely keep you apart. To subscribe to timing being synonymous with love, the first thing we need to accept is the fact that we need to stop yearning for “the one”. When you're ready to settle down, any guy--the one you bumped into in office, the one you right swiped on Tinder or even the one you met at a speed dating event--can be the person for you provided he wants to settle down too. He may not be the one, but he will be your one. You see, when you get the timing down pat, there's very little that can go wrong. © Unsplash Come to think of it, how do we even know who's the one for us? If you hold on someone to their promise of being “the one” for you and magically gift you a happily-ever-after like it is in the movies, your relationship will be ripe for disaster. Life is never that simple, is it? It's only when you spend time with someone for a long period of time, and they stick by you through thick and thin, will he be the one for you. In all these cases, the only marker that you need to look out for is undoubtedly, “timing”. The greatest proof of love been intertwined with timing can be found hidden under the seven seasons of 'How I Met Your Mother'. In the show, Ted, its lead, was a kind of person who believed in the serendipity of true love. But, he also believed in the magic of “the one”. He spent most of his prime searching for her; one who would have a yellow umbrella would love him like there's no tomorrow and would like the same things as him. After six seasons of being single, Ted even found her. They got married, had kids and he, at last, told them how he met their mother. But the story didn't just end at that, for Ted's “one” died. The show came to its fruitful end not because Ted had finally found “the one”, but when Ted and Robin rekindle their relationship because both secretly want to. © Unsplash In short, their timing was right. HIMYM might have tricked us into steadfastly believing that we will always find “the one” for us, but in reality, the show's about ending up with the person who's been there all along at the right time in your life. Ted and Robin had dated once and remained best friends, but they never end up together until the very end, because that's when both of their timing was right. It's also what Robin tells Ted at one point during the show, “If you have chemistry, you need only one thing. Timing.” This also means that there will never be one person who'll be right for you. Instead, there will be a lot of someones who could be right for you and who could be the partner you've been looking for. Now, that we're functioning adults, the first thing we need to stop believing is that love is a person. Love can be so many different people, but how lasting and true it is, depends on only one thing: timing. The only question is: Does their timing match yours? Because, as you know, timing is a b***h.
  13. Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi speaking to Geo News. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Friday that Nawaz Sharif is the leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and the question about Maryam Nawaz?s leadership has not yet surfaced as she doesn?t hold any party position and is nor an elected member. Speaking in an exclusive interview with Geo News, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan should express his opinion in party meetings rather than expressing them in public. He said that the PML-N will win the next general elections on the basis of its performance and narrative. The prime minister said that the entire Pakistan now accepts that only Punjab government is successful among all the provinces, as the rest three are not able to give desired performance. PM Abbasi said that Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif is the party?s provincial president but the leader who the masses recognise is Nawaz Sharif. Responding to a question, the prime minister said, ?This is my seventh month as premier, and Nawaz Sharif has never telephoned me up till now [to instruct me] to do this or not do the other." He added that there was only one red-line for his government and that was the Constitution of Pakistan. Reacting on the criticism of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan, he said: ?I don?t have any acquaintance with him, he didn?t even come in assembly to vote. I am not concerned on his opinion.? PM Abbasi said that he is always ready to debate with Awami Muslim League leader Sheikh Rashid. ?I have asked him several times to come debate with me in person,? he said. ?I have never desired to become prime minister. I was not a candidate for the prime minister office, neither I am right now,? he said. ?I have been with the party in its good and bad time. I have never seen those who change parties to become successful.? He said that not a single party can bring any amendment to the constitution even if its in a majority, adding that 18th amendment was passed with consensus, now it should be implemented in its spirit. ?The provinces now have to show performance, if the parties running the provincial government doesn?t they will fail in the coming times.?
  14. Elon Musk is yet not the richest man on the planet still everybody's always talking about his remarkable achievements and his crazy ambitions. Do you ask why? Maybe because he is not into entrepreneurship just for the sake of making loads of money. Maybe he is afraid of the mundane and for that, he has seen it all. Saving Tesla from going bankrupt he almost went broke and lived on friends aid, have gone through failed relationships and what not. © Reuters He says, “My proceeds from the PayPal acquisition were $180 million. I put $100 million in SpaceX, $70m in Tesla, and $10m in Solar City. I had to borrow money for rent.” What makes him achieve things which we only can dream of? Whether it is about building better transport system like Hyperloop, eco-friendly electric cars or showing that a private space company can exist and flourish even if a decade ago no one believed so. His achievements are truly entrepreneurial in nature. Everybody talked about electric cars but he did it, every investor was against the idea of investing in a space travel company yet he made it possible, everyone dreamt of faster travel but only he is making tunnel transportation possible. It seems like if he thinks something is worth doing then he makes it work however big the odds may be. Elon Musk with his then-wife, British actress Talulah Riley © Reuters According to a Tesla report, Elon Musk earned $49,920 (Rs 32.13 lakh) last year. That's exactly the equivalent of an 80-hour work week at US' minimum wage ($10.50 an hour) whereas Infosys CEO Salil Parikh draws about Rs 18.6 crore annually. That's a huge margin for sure which clearly shows that he is not into entrepreneurship just for making money but he has some major goals to achieve. What can entrepreneurs learn from this? Though he has a pretty good stake in SpaceX and Tesla they are yet not highly profitable companies yet. The lesson for entrepreneurs is that do not jump into entrepreneurship if your drive is only money. He sums it up like this: "I think it's very difficult to start companies, it's quite painful. A friend of mine has a good phrase for doing a startup: it's like eating glass and staring into the abyss. If you are wired to do it, then only do it, not otherwise. So think of it this way - if you need inspiring words, DON'T DO IT!", said Elon in a conversation with Draper University students.
  15. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. -FILE BEIRUT: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday Washington has never supplied heavy weaponry in Syria to the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), which Ankara blacklists as a terror group. "We have never given heavy arms to the YPG so there is none to take back," Tillerson said in response to a question at a press conference in the Lebanese capital Beirut before heading for Ankara. Turkey has repeatedly accused the United States of massively arming the YPG, and has said Washington must gather up its weapons now that the peak of the fight against militants has passed. Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier this month accused Washington of sending in 5,000 truckloads of weapons to the YPG in Syria, as well as 2,000 planeloads of arms. "The United States says 'we have cleansed (the area) of Daesh'," Erdogan said, using an Arabic acronym for the group. "So if you have cleansed it from Daesh then why are you still here?" he asked.

Speaking on Geo News' show 'Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Saath', Naseem said, "I only mentioned it before two individuals at the airport that Musharraf's tenure had been in best interest of Karachi. Sattar calls MQM fiasco ?minus two?, points at Musharraf MQM-P chief was speaking on Gei News programme ?Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kaay Saath? On Monday, former MQM-P convener Farooq Sattar, on the same show, said the infighting within the party points towards a "minus two" formula, alleging that the members are playing into someone else's hands. Sattar claimed that certain party members are rallying behind former president Pervez Musharraf and want him as the party's chief. "Saying that Musharraf's tenure was better for Karachi does not mean that he should be made leader of the MQM[P]," Naseem said. He added that he respects Musharraf and holds the former ruler as an elder brother.
  18. For a country that is comprised of over billion people who share different religious values, caste and culture; there is little doubt that India is united in their love for cricket and Bollywood. While watching the fixtures of the Indian cricket team is a household affair, the plethora of acting talent in the B-town has rightly struck a cord with the people. It's, therefore, no secret that there's a traditional law of attraction between the men with the willow and the hotties from Bollywood. Acknowledged as the country's most celebrated and high-profile arenas, cricket and Bollywood have yielded love stories and marriages down the decades. © BCCL The most recent example came to the fore with Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma's marriage. While Kohli has become one of the best cricketers of his generation, Anushka has also transformed herself into a proven star. The duo followed into the long-list of Bolly-cricket couples who bridged the gap between two of India's highly sought-after professions. While others including the likes of Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech, Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge, and Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra all fit the bill of a successful Bollywood-cricket couple, there are indeed a few who just couldn't manage to go past the headlines and failed to materialise into a marriage. Here are the Bolly-cricket couples whose relationships never saw the light of day: Zaheer Khan And Isha Sharvani © Twitter Last year, former Indian seamer Zaheer Khan tied the nuptial knot with Bollywood's 'Chak De' girl Sagarika Ghatge. But, back in 2012, the left-arm bowler was set to get married to another Bollywood actress Isha Sharvani. Zak was bowled over by Isha in 2005 after they met at a private party. The duo immediately struck a cord and began dating. While Isha was seen attending the matches Zaheer played in, the Indian bowling legend was also spotted on dinner dates with her. However, after an eight-year on-and-off relationship, the couple called it quits in 2012. While Zak was busy travelling all over the globe for his matches, Isha was based in Chennai for her work. And, as it turned out it was the distance between the two which became the cause of their split. "I am single today. Yes, we were together for many years. But it is all over between Zaheer and me now," Isha told TOI during an interview in 2012. Yuvraj Singh And Kim Sharma © Twitter Yuvraj Singh got married to Hazel Keech amid a huge fanfare last year. Theirs was a fairytale wedding that happened on the back of a steady relationship. But, many years ago before Yuvi and Hazel began dating, the Indian southpaw was in a srious relationship with another Bollywood hottie - Kim Sharma. Whether it was holding hands at public events or shaking a leg together at private parties, the two were inseperable during the four years of their relationship. But, things eventually didn't work in their favour. While some believed that Yuvi's mother Shabnam didn't approve of her son's choice, others claimed that it was Kim's obsessive and terribly abusive behaviour with the Indian star that became the nemesis of their relationship. Soon after, Kim went on to marry a Kenyan business tycoon who later left her for another woman. Last year in March, Yuvi and Kim crossed paths during a private party where both greeted each other with a peck on the cheek. But, the media reports claim that Hazel - who came along with Yuvi - wasn't happy to see Kim there and within 15 minutes of her arrival, left the party. MS Dhoni And Raai Laxmi © BCCL One of the most popular sportspersons in the country, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has enjoyed his share of limelight over the years. One of the most successful captains of India, Dhoni has been a revelation for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). In 2009, when he was calling the shots as CSK skipper, Dhoni forged a close relationship with southern actress Raai Laxmi. Dhoni met the sultry beauty during a team event where Laxmi was also present as CSK's team ambassador. The couple dated for almost an year before calling it quits for good. While Dhoni went on to marry Sakshi the very next year, Raai Laxmi continues to slam the former Indian captain over their relationship. During the promotions of her film Julie 2 in 2017, when Laxmi was asked about Dhoni, she raised a few eyebrows by saying, "Who's he?". "I've begun to believe that my relationship with Dhoni is like a stain or a scar which won't go away for a long time," she added. Rohit Sharma And Sofia Hayat © Twitter In 2015, India's star-opener Rohit Sharma got married to his manager Ritika Sajdeh amid much fanfare. But, three years ahead of their star-studded marriage, India's 'Hitman' was linked with British-Indian model Sofia Hayat. In 2012, Sofia confirmed her relationship with the Indian cricketer on Twitter. Ok let's put the rumours to end..yes I dated rohit sharma.. now it's over.. I wouldn't date him again..this time I'm looking for a gentleman — Sofia Maria Hayat (@sofiahayat) October 28, 2012 “Ok, let's put the rumours to end. Yes I dated Rohit Sharma. Now it's over. I wouldn't date him again. This time I'm looking for a gentleman,” she tweeted. Few weeks later, media report claimed her saying: "Yes…we met a year ago. It was going well till the time press found out and he freaked out. He responded by saying I was a fan. This behavior disappointed me for he had no decency to even call me before saying so”. Last year in December, when Rohit's heartfelt gesture towards his wife Ritika after scoring his doubled hundred against Sri Lanka won over fans, Sofia didn't shy away from taking a dig at her old flame. "He (Rohit) has this old habit to credit his partner. When I was in his life, I used to be credited but I use to cry only when he played bad. I'm happy that Rohit has finally found someone who is trying to make him move on from me,” she said. Ravi Shastri And Amrita Singh © Twitter Last, but definitely not the least. The final Bolly-cricket couple that didn't get their 'Virushka' moment are Indian coach Ravi Shastri and Bollywood actress Amrita Singh. Theirs is touted to be one of the most-talked about love affairs of the '80s. During his playing days, Shastri was the poster boy of the Indian cricket team. And, there was no surprise when Amrita Singh got attracted to the right-handed batsman. The Bollywood star soon became a regular face at the stadiums where Shastri played. Later, the couple also appeared on a magazine cover which further confirmed possibilities of a potential Bolly-cricket marriage. But, soon, things turned ugly between the two and a break-up eventually followed. After their fall-out, while Amrita got married to actor Saif Ali Khan, Shastri tied the nuptial knot with Ritu Singh. Sadly, for both of them, just like their relationship, their respective marriages, too, failed to materialise.
  19. Whether you're trekking in the hills, walking your dog, or grabbing beers down a few blocks — men like Ajay Devgn will also cross your path. These male species that come with a great recall value are humble, relatable, supremely friendly and most importantly, dress like your everyday dudes. They may or may not have a beautiful wife by their side, but that's completely beside the point here. Point being, for years, actor Ajay Devgn has stood for fashion for the masses. He may not be 'quirky', eccentric in any way or headlining the best-dressed lists, but what he knows (and knows best) is the trick to dress like a real 'man'. In classic shirts, slim-fit jeans and must-have footwear styles (albeit with his guns), Devgn has always been the epitome of the Indian 'mard'. Having said that, for a recent promotional event for the movie 'Raid', we snapped him in three never-seen-before pieces. To be frank, while they weren't too strange to the eye, too ordinary or very experimental, their details stood out the most for us. Let's begin with the black shirt first: © Viral Bhayani First off, let's establish: it's not a dirty shirt; it has seen the light of a washing machine in the past. In fact, what's making you think of it as a laundry-less piece of apparel, is the treatment the retail brand has given to the shirt. In all probability, it's either splattered with paint (but faded with harsh machine washes) or it has undergone an application of tools like a stone, metal etc. Or is it a print? We can only wonder. Now let's discuss the nuances of his jeans: © Viral Bhayani While the base is simple (it's a pair of jeans), we're not quite sure of where the cargo-pockets have emerged from. Clearly, they're the remains off a pair of cargo pants and flag-bearers of the brand's design aesthetic. However, all in all, we're not quite sure of how the detail is working for the pair. For #3, Devgn's choice of footwear: © Viral Bhayani If one goes by the line of sight, this shoe is a hybrid of Chukka boots, featuring a moccasin-like front. Only difference? The front is so twisted, that you can hardly figure what's happening here. Plus, we're not sure of its versatility across style categories. You can neither wear it to work, nor pair with your summer shorts. But again, not everything's produced to please the style gods. © Viral Bhayani Unfortunately, we're going to sign off with mixed feelings here. But on the fortunate front, we're glad to have Ajay Devgn back in the public light.
  20. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan on Friday said that the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has clarified that there was never any personal or private use of government helicopters by him. On January 29, Geo News reported that the KP government spent millions of rupees on Imran's use of the provincial government's helicopters. The PTI chairman also said that he welcomes the examining of the issue by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). He expressed hope that the accountability body will also look into the "abuse of official planes, helicopters and etcetera by Zardaris and Sharifs". NAB orders inquiry into Imran's use of KP CM's official helicopters Official documents had revealed that PTI Chairman Imran Khan used Pervez Khattak's helicopters for a total of 74 hours to travel approximately 18,000km at a cost of Rs2.1 million A statement by the provincial government of KP said that since 2013, the PTI-led provincial government has not used these helicopters for any other purpose than official business. On Friday, NAB Chairman Javed Iqbal directed the bureau's KP director general to conduct an inquiry into PTI Chairman Imran Khan's reported use of the KP chief minister's official helicopters. NAB was directed to ascertain how the CM handed over his official helicopter to someone else and find out if the same was repeated with other individuals. Moreover, the DG was tasked to determine if the CM misused his authority. The press release states that NAB has started the inquiry so that official helicopters are not misused in the future. Documents obtained by Geo News from the KP administration department showed that the PTI chairperson used the KP government's helicopters free of charge for a total of 74 hours to travel approximately 18,000 kilometres. The provincial government recorded in its books a total expense of Rs2.1 million at approximately Rs28,865 per hour for Khan's 40 trips on the two helicopters ? an Mi-17 and an Ecureuil. Similar trips using a private helicopter would have cost the PTI chairperson tens of millions of rupees, according to estimates. Khan used the Mi-17 for 21 hours 50 minutes on 12 trips amounting to a recorded expense of Rs1,270,307. Similarly, he used the Ecureuil helicopter 28 times for a total of 52 hours and 5 minutes, amounting to a recorded expense of Rs836,875. Combined, Khan used both helicopters for a total of 73 hours and 55 minutes, resulting in an expense of Rs2,107,181 recorded by the provincial government. The PTI chief, whose party governs Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, used the helicopters to fly to and from Bani Gala, Islamabad, Mardan, Peshawar, Abbottabad, Haripur, Swat and Nathiagali, Kohat, Batagram, and Chakdara, among other places. In its documents, the administration department mentioned the purpose of the flights as "official use and urgent nature of work". Speaking to Geo News, KP chief minister's principal adviser on aviation, Mohammad Amin, said Imran must have accompanied the chief minister on these trips. However, when asked, Amin estimated that use of the helicopters costs between Rs150,000 and Rs200,000 per hour?far greater than the Rs28,865 average hourly rate at which expenses were recorded in the provincial administration's books. Similarly, in a statement, KP Minister for Information Shah Farman said that Khan never travelled in government helicopters alone. "Imran used the helicopter in the interest of the people and on request of the provincial government, along with the chief minister and other ministers," Farman said in a statement, labelling the report as "propaganda." A senior KP government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, had claimed that Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak is the chief executive of the province and holds the discretion of allowing any individual to use the provincial government's helicopters.
  21. The route may vary but every man desires to look fit and stay healthy. Some achieve this goal via strength training, some by aesthetics and some by functional training. I doubt there is a single man who'll say he is happy being unhealthy and I am no different. At 5' 9" I was skinny and underweight my entire teenage years. I joined a gym with the purpose of bettering my body composition. During the initial six months, I ate anything and everything I could get my hands on with the sole aim of putting on mass. As a result, I gained 10 kilos but the progress seemed negligible as most of the weight I had put on was fat weight. This made me realize the importance of proper training and nutrition. Seeking guidance, I got in touch with Coach Vivek Ganghas of Alpharaj. It was him, who changed the way I looked at bodybuilding, completely. I learnt about the principles of training and nutrition and how small adjustments can bring about big differences. As I began following a structured diet and training plan my body began to change. Being an engineering student I have always been short on time and money. The issue of being short on time was my biggest concern as college, preparing five meals a day and all the soreness from last day's workout takes a toll on the body. But this is where the dedication kicks in. It's was my hunger to stand out from the crowd that kept me going. From the very first day, I gave it all I had and held back nothing. I have always been fond of challenges and this was no different. Being average is never an option for me. With burning passion and a great coach on my side, I was left with no excuse to not change for good. So here is where I stand today. A Message To The Readers Invest your time, energy and money in the right place. Selection of a guide plays a crucial role in your returns. Without proper guidance, it is almost impossible to move towards desired goals, especially in the sport of bodybuilding. This is an area where legit knowledge is the key to progress. For me, my coach served as a savior. We work hard but more importantly, we worked smart. I train 5 days a week and my supplement stack only includes whey protein, creatine, fish oil and vitamins. Nothing fancy at all. Natural bodybuilding allowed me to discover my body's true potential and now it's an inseparable part of what I am.
  22. KARACHI: Following the harsh language used by those addressing the joint opposition rally in Lahore on Wednesday, Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari distanced his party and made it clear that the "PPP respects Parliament and will always do so". During the protest Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan and Awami Muslim League chairman Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed cursed the parliament for allowing ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif to become head of his party. Bilawal Bhutto Tweeted: "The #PPP respects Parliament and will always respect Parliament. Cannot help the behaviour of others but will never endorse disrespecting Parliament."
  23. Fitness has been my passion ever since I can remember. I first joined a gym when I was 15, and worked on weight training for a couple of years and gained some decent strength. I then moved to London for further studies and this is when fitness took a backseat. A hectic schedule of studies and work took over my life. However, I still kept reading fitness magazines and articles to quench my thirst. When I moved back to India after completing my education, I started training seriously and developed a good physique with a year's worth of hard work. Sadly though, over enthusiasm and a lack of patience led to a tennis elbow and an ACL tear. This is when my training and diet went for a toss. I did not pay attention to my diet at all and ballooned to a whooping 114 kilos. © Nav Dillion Owning a gym and being an online fitness coach myself, this was very damaging to me and one fine day, I came to a realization that this way of life cannot continue. I picked up the weights once again and made changes to my diet. With patience and hard work, I lost over 30 kilos in a year. What did I do? No fads or shortcuts. Fitness and nutrition is science. Follow that science and you'll get results. Period. A well structured nutrition plan and some form of resistance training is all that is required to lose fat. A quick hack that promises you magical results in weeks, doesn't really exist. I don't believe in fads and follow the basics and the results are there for everyone to see. © Nav Dilliion This new found fitness level after a major slip helped me understand the process better and the mindset that people go through. It feels amazing to be able to help them out with my coaching. Not only am I determined to take my physique to a new level this year but also educate as many people as possible while I crush the goals I have set for myself. It's never easy, but if you follow science and structure, fitness becomes way more manageable. Now go figure out your resolutions! © Nav Dillion © Nav Dillion Nav Dhillon is an online coach with GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company that helps people with fitness goals right from losing weight to competing in bodybuilding shows.

  24. Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett talks to reporters prior to the Berkshire annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, US on May 2, 2015. Photo: Reuters file Berkshire Hathaway?s Warren Buffett said on Wednesday he will never invest in cryptocurrencies. ?I can say almost with certainty that cryptocurrencies will come to a bad end,? Buffett told CNBC in an interview. Buffett?s comments come a day after JPMorgan & Chase Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said he regrets calling bitcoin a fraud, referring to comments he made at a banking conference in September. Bitcoin has taken the investing world by storm, surging to a high of more than $19,000 and created a divide on Wall Street about whether it is a legitimate financial instrument. Bitcoin was down around 3 percent at $13,981.53.
  25. Whether it's Xmas or the New Year, you have got to get in your workouts. Always remember that! Since most of y'all would already be cheating on your diets, try to squeeze in a workout anyway. If you are short on time because of the festivities and hangovers, we have got your back. This here is a complete chest workout that will barely take you 30 minutes to accomplish and trust us, those 30 minutes will be well worth the sweat. Let's get right into it. Exercise Selection 1) Incline Dumbbell Press © YouTube 2) Pec-Deck Fly © YouTube 3) Low Pulley Cable Fly © YouTube Workout Progression The main focus here will be to proceed into the workout in a circuit. This means that you will first do the incline dumbell press, immediately followed by a Pec-Dec Fly and then a Low Pulley Cable Fly. Perform one after the other and rest only when you are done with all three exercises. Weight Selection, Repetition Tempo, Sets And Rest Periods While working on a dumbbell press, for the first set, select the optimum weight with which you can perform 6-8 reps with 70% of your max effort. There will be a total of 4 sets and for the next three sets select the weights you can do 6-8 reps with 80%, 90% and 100% of your max effort, respectively. 6-8 will be the reps range. On the pec-deck and low pulley fly, select the same reps and weight scheme. Both of these exercises are more 'feel the movement' rather than pushing really heavy plates. So be aware of what you are doing. Rest only for a minute and a half after completing one round of pressing, pec-deck flys and low-pulley cables flys. Maximum Time Under Tension: Squeeze And Hold This entire workout is tied around the logic of maximum time under tension. This isn't CrossFit, so don't rush your reps. Make it a point to feel each and every repetition. Squeeze when on top and control the lowering phase on all the three exercises. The more control and squeeze you have, the better will be the muscle recruitment and hence, stimulation. There you go guys, a short and painful workout for the holidays. Happy getting jacked in 2018.
