  1. 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. Nav is an avid bodybuilding enthusiast and heads the NABBA (National amateur bodybuilders association) as a General Secretary. This innate passion and position has helped him work with a lot of bodybuilders to help them take their physique at the next level. He also has a lovely pet called Buster whom he enjoys playing with in his free time. You can reach Nav on nav.dhillon@getsetgo.fitness to take your fitness and physique to the next level.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Well, well, well, don't we all want to know everything and anything that has to with Virat-Anushka? If you think you don't, the fact that you clicked on this article proves otherwise. Hate it or love it, but the amount of media coverage that Virushka has garnered owing to their never-ending wedding functions cannot allow you to ignore them. And by now, if you are frustrated with your news feed being filled with their photos, we should tell you there are many Twitter users who feel your pain. And what do Twitter users do when they are frustrated? They go on a trolling spree and bring their creativity to the front with memes. Of course by now you know that their second reception took place in Mumbai yesterday and saw all the big names from Bollywood and Cricket industry.

  5. The children are gone. 134 of them, killed in their own classrooms in a cold-blooded attack by seven heavily-armed terrorists. But the mothers still live, with paralysing grief, painful memories and simmering anger. In a televised address, post Dec 16, 2014, then-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif vowed retribution: ?Being a father, I can understand how heavy these small coffins were for the shoulders of the parents to bear. I convey to the terrorists the decision of the nation: your days are numbered.? His words were reassuring. But then, they were not. Three years after the storming of Peshawar?s Army Public School, the mothers, the fathers, and the children are still waiting on that promise. Some parents have found solace in each others' company. They have come together to run between police stations, courtrooms, parliamentary buildings, and garrisons for answers and justice. On days, they chase journalists for a chance to be heard. Here are their voices?loud and uncensored.
  6. This Is The Reason Why That One Friend Of Yours Eats Everything But Never Gets Fat The world's an unfair place. While someone's blessed with great genetics, mot people aren't. Some people are fat, some are not. Some people are tall, some are short. None of us are the same. Our genetic make-up, the way our system reacts to food and fat gain, everything's very different. For a coach, to make a fat loss client understand this is the most difficult thing. Most people think what worked on their friends, will work on them. When I come across a client like this, I ask him to try on my pants or shirt. Does it fit him? Of course not and this, gives him an answer to his question. A diet is just as subjective as the measurement of your clothes; it's unique to what body needs and your fitness goals. Everybody Has That One Friend Who Eats Everything But Never Gets Fat Now, coming across such a person isn't unheard of. I am sure you definitely know at least one such guy who eats anything he likes, in whatsoever quantity but still doesn't put on fat. Everybody, especially those on the higher end of the weighing scale envy him and keep asking him what he does. The poor guy, on the other hand, is actually tired of eating and not putting on any weight. But why does he not put on weight? How is able to digest all that junk food so easily? I'll break down the answer for you. The All Mighty Metabolism Metabolism is defined as the sum of all chemical reactions leading to the creation and break down of energy for the purpose of survival. Let's just say that it's the speed at which our body burns calories. Now each one of us has a different metabolic rate. Let's classify them as efficient and less efficient metabolic rate. The guy with an 'efficient' metabolism will burn more calories at rest while the person with a less efficient metabolism will burn lesser calorie at rest. Your skinny friend has an efficient metabolism and that helps him burn more calories at rest. Alright, That's Cool But Why Does He Not Put on Weight? Now that I have made it clear what an efficient metabolism is, let's proceed. First, your skinny friend's body burns a huge amount of calories just to keep him alive. Secondly, what activities he does throughout the day, including exercise if any, adds to this calorie expenditure. And most of the time, despite what people think, skinny guys are operating in a caloric deficit. Just because people see them hogging on junk food, they assume that skinny guys eat a lot but that's generally not the case. Most guys, who think they eat a lot but still don't put on weight, are actually under-eating. This might come as a surprise, but is a fact. Basal Metabolic Rate: Burning Maximum Calories While Resting BMR is the number of calories your body burns to maintain your existence as it is. Everything that happens in our body is driven by energy sucked out of calories. So calories are a currency in this case. While people love to think that exercise burns the most amounts of calories, it's exactly the opposite. Calories burned during exercising are very small. We burn the most amounts of calories while our body is doing its business to keep us alive. After that, our daily activities take up a lot of calories. Exercise as a means of efficient calories expenditure ranks below daily activity levels. Also, the amount of calories burned during a workout session largely depends upon the intensity of the workout. Exercise plays a very important role in the regulation of metabolism and improving the nutrition partitioning ability of the body. But Please Don't Jump To Conclusions And Start Blaming Your Metabolism For Being Skinny Or Fat While metabolism is indeed a genetic thing but a lot of people, without putting in any effort, blame their fat gain and skinny body type on metabolism. What's of utmost importance is establishing an energy balance in the body. If you are fat, operate in a caloric deficit. If you are skinny, operate in a caloric surplus and add training according to your goal. Skinny dudes with efficient metabolism are skinny not because their metabolism is too efficient but because they are eating too little. If your body needs more to grow, give it more 'calculated' food. So now you know what to do and why your skinny friend always remains skinny. So What Do I Do To Make My Metabolism Efficient Well, the first thing will be to stop putting the blame for everything on it. Secondly, start eating right and add strength resistance training to preserve and build a considerable amount of muscle. The more muscle you have, the more you will burn calories at rest to sustain it. Thus, a higher BMR!
  7. Hugh Jackman made his 'Wolverine' avatar iconic and has a massive fan following for that. In a recent interview, Jackman revealed some information which could have been HUGE, if only it happened. Apparently, the 'Wolverine' turned down the iconic role of 'James Bond' because he thought the script was a little too wild for his comfort. “I just felt at the time that the scripts has become so unbelievable and crazy, and I felt like they needed to become grittier and real', he said. © Facebook Another hiccup in the legendary actor not taking up the role of the iconic spy was that he was told by the producers that he won't have any say in the whole plotting of the movie and the character. So that's one more thing that made him turn it down. Also, he was worried about swinging between 'X-Men' and 'James Bond' which would have been tough. His refusal turned out to be gold for Daniel Craig eventually. © Facebook Obviously, Hugh had nothing to worry about and regrets didn't have any space in his life since he went on to do some stellar work and owned the whole 'Wolverine' franchise and made it what it became.
  8. Supermodel Amit Ranjan — a lean-mean-romantic with long locks and a groomed-to-perfection beard — has been modelling for over a decade now. Whether it's showcasing his editorial excellence on the pages of top Indian magazines, or seamlessly gliding down the ramp — Mr. Ranjan can do it all—and make it seem effortlessly cool. Like for our #30Days30Beards shoot, where he channeled his inner dandy in a three-piece maroon suit paired with a vintage-y floral shirt. A look we would kill to wear. But I digress. We are here to talk about his beard and his grooming know-how. © MensXP, Wardrobe Partner: Park Avenue Do you think beards are overrated? Beards are for legends. Some of the most iconic men in world history have sported magnificent beards. How has growing a beard changed your life? I love...love...love beards. Proof? I've always been a bearded man and never left the pressure or need to completely shave it off—except once. But, to be honest, it actually changed my life and gave my look a whole new edge. What made you grow it in the first place? I was fascinated with some of the most stunning personalities who have sported a big-boy beard. From Abraham Lincoln to Karl Marx—these iconic figures have always served as my beard inspiration. Do women dig the beard or a clean-shave? According to me, women majorly dig beards. (laughs) © MensXP, Wardrobe Partner: Park Avenue Ever thought of a name for your beard? Never. That would take my obsession to a whole new level. Razor or trimmer? And how often? Always use a trimmer — depending on my assignments and my mood. Ever tried beard oils, shampoos, conditioners etc? I shampoo and oil regularly. Because one has to keep it clean and smooth. © MensXP, Wardrobe Partner: Park Avenue Your best and worst beard phase? Usually, my best phase is when I am on a break and traveling. It means I get to let my beard be free-flowing and wild. The worst was when I had to shave it off for a campaign and the in-between phase got on my nerves The razor/trimmer you're using right now? Philip trimmer According to you, the most iconic celebrity beard in the world? Amitabh Bachchan according to me sports a classic and very stylish beard --- Amit wears a three-piece suit and floral shirt all from Park Avenue Photography: Manasi Sawant Creative Direction: Santu Misra Styling: Siddharth Batra Grooming: Jean Claude Biguine Production: Anand Pratap Singh Wardrobe Partner: Park Avenue
  9. Ted Mosby was not everyone's favourite and I'll tell you why. First, the amount of insane optimism this man carried was unhealthy. I mean, who can still be annoyingly positive after watching the girl you love going away with another man? Right? Second, his never ending hunt for 'the one'. At one point I am sure we all were like “just give up man”, but clearly Teddy Westside had no intentions of doing that. But the one thing that made everyone admire him was that, despite the rocks life threw at him, his views on love never became jaded. His belief about finding was so strong that it made some of us wonder, if we believe this strongly about something in our lives. Here are 10 quotes, which according to me, highlight his incredible belief and faith in the power of love. And trust me, we need it. Not necessarily in the love department, but other facets of life as well, where a little faith can do wonders. 1. “If you're not scared, you're not taking a chance and if you're not taking a chance, then what the hell are you doing?” © Pinterest We are all scared shitless when it comes to taking a leap of faith, not just when it comes to love, but life in general. Why some of us actually break our heads trying to figure out something new from a menu. Point is, the worst thing that can break you is regret, and the way to avoid that is taking chances. 2. “If you're looking for the word that means caring about someone beyond all rationality and wanting them to have everything they want no matter how much it destroys you, it's love. And when you love someone you don't stop, ever. Even when people roll their eyes, and call you crazy. Even then. Especially then.” © Pinterest This powerful quote speaks in volumes for itself. What makes goddamn sense is that we are all guilty of becoming vulnerable to the opinions of friends and society. But Ted says screw em' and march on! 3. “Shouldn't we hold out for the person who doesn't just tolerate our little quirks but actually kinda likes them?” Most of us keep saying “I'm ready to change for her if she wants,” but now when you read this quote, doesn't doing that seem just wrong? 4. “Love doesn't make sense! You can't logic your way into or out of it. Love is totally nonsensical. But we have to keep doing it or else we're lost and love is dead, and humanity should just pack it in. Because love is the best thing we do.” © popsugar This is a little difficult to swallow, at least for me, as I simply MUST find logic in everything. But I guess, we need to face harsh truths sometimes. 5. “You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That's why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.” Raise your hands if you are guilty of cutting out people from your life and then instantly regretting it! 6. “If you love something, you can never let it go. Not even for a second. Or it's gone forever.” © Wikimedia commons It's so damn easy to say “let's end this” because it is the clear easy way out, right? But biting down the pride and ego and actually fighting to save your relationship is probably the hardest thing you can ever go through. 7. “I used to be in such a hurry all the time. Everything was so urgent. Now I figure, if it's going to happen, it'll happen when it happens. I'm not going anywhere; she's not going anywhere. What's the rush, right?” © Wikimeidia commons It's a good thing to be focused on searching for your soulmate, but that doesn't mean that life has to stop right? 8. “Sometimes things have to fall apart to make way for better things.” There is this song by Rascal Flatts called 'Broken Roads'. It has this one particular line which goes like “every long, lost dream led me to where you are. Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars pointing me on my way, into your loving arms.” (Beautiful, I know right?) Point is, losing someone you love can sometimes have a purpose. Maybe it teaches us how to be better in the future. Basically, some heartbreaks happen for a reason. 9. “Sometimes love means taking a step back. If you care about somebody, you should want them to be happy even if you wind up being left out.” I think this quote pretty much speaks for itself. I'm sure many of you out there have ended things just because she was not happy. Irrespective of how you felt, irrespective that at least you were happy in the relation, you let her go. That is nothing else but true love, my friend. 10. “People don't get the chance to discover each other anymore.” So true. Given the present times we are living in, it is very rare that people actually have the patience of digging deeper and peeling the layers of your partner to get to find a new facet to them. The joy of discovering someone comes only with time, but what is one supposed to do when they end up getting 'fed up' in just three months? Okay! So I know the headline says 10 quotes, but I just had to add this one. Just had to. His expression is just screaming of pure love!
  10. Believe it or not, somewhere cinema immensely affects the way we think. Films somewhere leave an impression on our brain, be it good or bad. When we see a hero doing something, it is considered to be alright and we often term it as love when it, in reality, is nothing more than stalking. Karan Johar's 'Badrinath Ki Dulhania' is one of the best examples of stalking a female and audience and makers terming it as love. (c) Dharma Productions You see Badrinath Bansal (Varun Trivedi) literally stalking Vaidehi Trivedi (Alia Bhatt) be it out of love, but following someone is truly not so cool, be it on-screen or off-screen. It might look glorious on the silver screen but in reality, it's creepy and movies are the medium that often advocates such propaganda in name of entertainment. Things the makers show on the celluloid often sets up an example and prompt an individual to behave in a certain way, because of the mere thought that when a hero of the film can do it then why not 'I'? At times filmmakers don't realise that they have some unsaid moral responsibilities because what they show to thousands of people make a huge impact and item numbers are something we seriously need to take a look at. (c) Dharma Productions Yes, we do love it. Yes, it's on our playlist because of the peppy beats. Yes, the woman on the screen is a glamorous actress and looks every bit hot and sexy. But let's not forget the basic fact that at the end of the day item song is nothing more than a woman dancing in skimpy clothes with people hooting for her and checking her out in all inappropriate ways possible. These songs in simple terms objectify women and portray misogyny. And that is exactly what's wrong with Bollywood. Cinema has a lot more potential than just set some negative examples in an individual's life. (c) Dharma Productions And finally, we have someone from Bollywood who acknowledges this and accepts his mistakes. Filmmaker Karan Johar who has himself made songs like 'Chikni Chameli', 'Shut up and Bounce', 'Mera Naam Mary Hai', admits to his mistake of objectifying a woman in his song and promises to never do it again. Talking to 'She The People' he said, “The moment you put a woman in the centre and a thousand men looking at her lustingly, it's setting the wrong example. As a filmmaker, I have made those mistakes and I will never do it again.” Manning up to his mistake he has made a sensible decision. Of course, cinema should be entertaining but not at the cost of setting up wrong examples. Let's hope more filmmakers follow and understand this basic need. Check out the interview here:
  11. ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif submitted a written reply to the Islamabad High Court in the disqualification case against him on Friday. Asif faces disqualification from Parliament over possessing an Iqama ? a permit to work in the UAE. In the 23-page long reply, Asif explained that he has never denied his employment contract with a foreign company. He accepted that he worked as the legal adviser for International Mechanical and Electrical Co (IMECO). Moreover, he also raised objections against the petition of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf?s Usman Dar. Asif claimed that it is not correct to say that Usman Dar is a law-abiding citizen as the petitioner hid many facts from the court. This is the reason why Dar?s election petition, appeal and request have been rejected, he said. He remarked that his business dealing with IMECO has nothing to do with the petitioner. The petitioner has no right to raise questions about the business dealings, he said, adding that the petitioner has failed to prove that any illegal activity was conducted. Asif also stated that it is incorrect to claim that he never disclosed receiving AED50,000. He said that he has shown AED50,000 as foreign income in his tax returns. On November 13, Asif had challenged the formation of a larger bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to hear his disqualification case. Submitting a 7-page reply in court, Asif challenged the formation of a larger bench on September 23. He claimed that his right of appeal has been affected by the formation of a larger bench. Asif further contended in his reply that the petitioner has gone through all legal remedies to get him (Asif) disqualified from Parliament. The disqualification petition was filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Usman Dar, who was fielded by his party during the general elections of 2013 in NA-110, the same constituency from where Asif was elected to the National Assembly. Iqama case: Khawaja Asif challenges formation of larger IHC bench PTI?s Usman Dar has filed a disqualification petition against his electoral rival and foreign minister Asif As per the petitioner, Asif is not entitled to hold the office of MNA nor of the federal minister under the Unlimited Term Employment Contract between him and International Mechanical and Electrical Co (IMECO), a company located in Abu Dhabi. Asif has been hired as a full-time employee of IMECO since at least July 2, 2011 and has held various positions, including those of the legal adviser and special adviser, the petition states. The contract signed between the foreign minister of Pakistan and the company claim that Asif was to receive a monthly basic salary of AED35,000 along with a monthly allowance of AED15,000. He is receiving the same while serving as the foreign minister at the same time, it is alleged.
  12. While dudes spend a ton of money on wasteful supplements like BCAAs, Glutamine and fat burners, there exists an overlooked category of supplements that no one talks about- recovery supplements. Only when you maximise your recovery can lift to your maximum potential and hence maximize your gains. Makes sense? Great! Here are 5 supplements that you can start using to boost recovery. 1) Curcumin Curcumin is the active molecule in turmeric which gives it the distinct yellow colour. Indians have known the benefits of curcumin for thousands of years. Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. It significantly reduces joint and ligament aches. Studies have observed a notable reduction in anxiety, depression, and symptoms of osteoarthritis. Minor reduction and in fatigue and soreness is also noted. Just add 5-10g of turmeric in warm milk and drink it once a day. Add 2-3g of black pepper to enhance the absorption, as it is poorly absorbed. 2) Ashvagandha Ashwagandha is a well-known Ayurvedic herb. It is an adaptogen, which helps you cope with stress. Weight training is stressful for our bodies, though easy to recover with good sleep and nutrition. There are additional sources of stress in our lives like our girlfriends, boss, traffic, leaking pipe in washroom etc. All these results in anxiety, poor sleep, and compromised recovery. Ashwagandha shows promising evidence for reducing anxiety, stress-induced depression, and insomnia. It also reduces fatigue and concentration of cortisol (catabolic hormone). I recommend taking the powdered variant (2-5g) over the tablet form as dosages are easily met, and it is more economical. 3) Zinc and Magnesium These two are marketed as a testosterone booster in the form ZMA. Though there is no strong evidence to support an increase in test levels by supplementing with these two. Magnesium helps in relaxing muscles by fixing electrolyte imbalance. Minor reduction in fatigue and an increase in performance is also noted. Zinc is a vital micronutrient for maintaining optimal testosterone levels and the immune system. Most vegetarians will be getting inadequate amounts of zinc from diet alone, thus supplementing is a good choice. Perhaps, the biggest advantage of taking these two is enhanced sleep quality and vivid dreams. Find 300-400mg of magnesium citrate and 30-50mg of zinc acetate or citrate. 4) Hathjod / Cissus quadrangularis It is a traditional Indian and Chinese medicine. Hathjod has strong anti-inflammatory properties and enhances bone density rate. It increases plasma serotonin levels (up to 30%) and reduces pain associated with joints and tendon ruptures. If you are someone who trains with high intensity on a regular basis, supplementing with Hathjod can be potentially beneficial for avoiding joint injuries. An effective dosage should be around 2-5g of powder mixed with warm water, once a day.
  13. MIANWALI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan advised the graduating students of National University of Modern Languages (NUML) to never compromise on their identity. Imran, who was the chief guest at the university?s convocation on Sunday, said ?you should never forget your identity.? Quaid-e-Azam didn?t want to make Pakistan for his own sake, he added. Speaking about his political journey, Imran said that people poked fun at his every move in the beginning. He remarked that had he left politics during hard times then PTI would have not been formed. He also reiterated his earlier claims that unemployment is the country?s biggest problem. While addressing the students, Imran said that ?drawing lines on a donkey won?t make it a zebra,? adding that the nation is confused as it is behind other countries in every field. Nawaz is gone, will not return now: Imran While addressing a rally in Taunsa on Saturday, PTI Chairperson Imran Khan remarked that former prime minister Nawaz has gone now and he won?t return. He remarked that ?now it?s time for Shehbaz to go?, adding that the Hudaibiya mills case has just been opened. Speaking about Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, he remarked that Abbasi still says that Nawaz is his leader. ?How do you accept a criminal of the nation as your PM?? Nawaz is gone, will not return now: Imran PTI chief remarked that it's time for Shehbaz to go now This proves only two things; either your internal conflicts have ended or you are just as corrupt as them, Imran claimed. Slamming the protocol received by Nawaz Sharif, Imran said ?country?s biggest criminal is given a protocol of 40 cars.? The PTI chief also reiterated his demand for snap elections. ?Snap elections should be announced for the betterment of the country.? He also shared his plans after coming into power. "We have to fight the curse of unemployment as it leads to proverty. We will fight poverty together."

  15. If there's anyone who can turn Australia and India, who have been cricketing rivals forever, into true BFFs, it's the adorable former Australian pace monster Brett Lee. The boisterous cricketer has never shied away from expressing his love for India and its people and has expressed on countless occasions that he feels at home here. It has been over a decade now that he has been visiting the country, whose culture, vibrant colours and people he is deeply in love with. While everyone is aware of his exceptional feats on the field, not many know about his goofy and funny side. We mean who else names their pet clown fish 'Finding' and 'Nemo'. Most importantly, how can one forget his love for Hindi songs, Indian culture and food? 1. Bollywood & Acting Runs In Brett Lee's Blood © Films & Casting Temple Pvt Ltd From dancing to the tunes of peppy songs to playing Holi and doing all the clichéd stuff that any Bollywood actor will do for his leading lady, Brett Lee stumped us all with his debut movie 'UNindian'. This Indo-Australian film revolved around a single mother Meera (Tannishtha Chatterjee) who falls in love with Will (Lee), an Australian man. The movie was a complete entertainer, which made us realize that Brett Lee is an all-rounder both on and off the field. 1. 'Dangal' Is The Word For Him. © Twitter/brett lee Brett Lee's love for India is not hidden from anyone, but this love did not stop the former fast bowler from giving a tough time to our men in blue on the field. In fact, Brett Lee did not go easy even while fighting with Indian wrestlers. Yes, Lee has recently taken a fancy for 'Kushti' and the way he tackled the trained wrestlers inside the ring was amazing. In fact he even touched the ground before entering the ring, a gesture which almost all of us will relate to. Dangal with @BrettLee_58 #NammaKPL pic.twitter.com/VsZVEra4BH — Namma KPL (@KPLKSCA) September 9, 2017 2. He Took His Passion For Music A Notch Higher By Recording A Song With The Legendary Asha Bhosle During the 2006 ICC Champions Trophy in India, Brett Lee wrote the lyrics for 'You're the One for me' and recorded the same with none other than Asha Bhosle. In the video, Brett Lee tries really hard to impress an Indian woman and Bhosle tries to teach him how to woo the girl. In fact, for those who don't know, Brett Lee is a part of an Australian rock band known as 'Six & out', plays guitar and sings in both English and Hindi. Also, 'Muqabla Muqabla' was Brett Lee's first Hindi song he heard at the age of 17 and he still has that cassette of the song. 3. He Started The 'Mewsic Foundation' To Help Disadvantaged Kids With Music © mewsic foundation People know Brett Lee as one of the greatest cricketers of all time, but not many know that he is also a philanthropist who loves to spread joy with his passion for music. Brett Lee brought his love for India and music under one roof with Mewsic Foundation, which aims to help disadvantaged kids with music. “I am passionate about music – perhaps even more so than cricket! Through my Mewsic Foundation I want to share that passion with the children of India. I want to ensure that all children in India have the opportunity to experience the joy and power of music.” 4. No One Can Separate Brett Lee From Butter Chicken If there's anything that binds our hearts with Brett Lee's, it's our mutual love for butter chicken and basically food in general. In fact, Lee once said, “The day I train hard, I work my butt off, put in effort and the match goes well, then I reward myself. A couple of quarts of beer, and Butter Chicken.” Well, now that we know about his unconditional love for Indian food, all we have to say is “Aao kabhi haveli pe, Brett Lee bhai!” Today, the former cricketer is celebrating his 41st birthday and all we have to say for him is, ahem ahem *clearing our throat* “bar bar yeh din aaye, bar bar yeh dil gaye…”, rest we all know how the song goes.
  16. Icelandic actor Sverrir Gudnason who plays opposite Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf in the newly released Borg-McEnroe movie admits he had never played tennis before landing the role as the 1980s Swedish icon. The youthful looking 39-year-old Gudnason was born in Sweden but grew up in Iceland, and bears a striking resemblance to Borg, whose cool personality contrasted to the fieriness of his on-court rival John McEnroe. "I had never seen a whole tennis game before all this," Gudnason told AFP in an interview. "I had never even been on a tennis court in my life and (for the film) I didn't just learn to play tennis, I learned to play tennis like Bjorn Borg." The actor said he had almost turned the role down because he had never played the game. "I didn't feel close to him, I didn't feel like an athlete and I was kind of thinking of turning it down," said Gudnason, who told producers he demanded physical back-up preparing for the role. "I played two hours per day for half a year getting the strokes right," he said, insisting the person himself was fascinating too. "I built the character by looking back on old footage from the 80s, not by calling him and asking him how he would do this or that." 'Nervous' He also enjoyed the on-screen experience with LaBeouf, who played McEnroe. "It was great, he's a great actor and a good man and he came in with a lot of energy and devotion to the film," he explained. Gudnason did not actually meet Borg himself until the Swedish premiere in Stockholm. "He said he was very moved by my performance. I'd been very nervous about meeting him," he said. Borg, now 61, is on record as saying Gudnason certainly looks like him. "He's really mentally strong," Gudnason said of Borg. "The superstitions and rituals he had... he loved routine, so he didn't have to worry about anything. "In a way it's trying to control everything to make stuff easier for himself." Gudnason says although time has moved on Borg still looms large in the Swedish psyche. "All the news is about Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) now but Bjorn Borg is still the king, he's like ABBA, you have these big Swedish things and he's one of them," he said comparing the tennis player to the nation's most famous pop group. The actor confessed to enjoying football above all else -- and admitted he got worked up following Iceland's unlikely football success. "The great thing about watching sports is that it can feel so important at the time," he said, referring to Iceland's recent qualification for its first ever World Cup finals. "This is like the golden years for Icelandic soccer," he said -- admitting that if Sweden played Iceland he would root for Iceland as the underdog.
  17. With an unprecedented career in Hollywood and versatile acting skills, legendary actor Robert De Niro (Robert Anthony De Niro) has touched the world through his powerful performances for the last 55 years and has remained a people's man throughout his life. Born and brought up in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, De Niro is known for playing offbeat, complex roles in Hollywood. He has proved his genius through the way he portrays his characters. It's a given that an actor has to go through rigorous change when trying to encapsulate the soul of a role, and that can mean putting their body, mind and sometimes even tongue through a tough process to fit the requirements of the script. However, such challenges never stopped a perfectionist like Robert from accomplishing highly appreciated roles. It's not a surprise that his performances only improved with each film he signed. © Universal Pictures Experimenting across a range of incredible roles including that of gangsters and fallen icons and lighter roles towards the later years of his glorious career, De Niro never failed to surprise his audience. He has always been a stage prodigy, which was quite evident through his stage debut 'The Wizard of Oz' at the age of 10. When he became fixated on cinema, he decided to drop out of high school at 16. A bold decision indeed. After struggling during the initial years of his career, De Niro realized his true potential as an actor only when he collaborated with the iconic director Martin Scorsese. This alliance was just the onset of a grand cinematic era. His mind-blowing performance in 'The Godfather II' earned him his first Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. As Vito Corleone, young De Niro was successful in capturing the strange, epic and menacing transformation of a man to a feared mafia don in this cult revenge story. © Paramount Pictures His collaboration with Scorsese is marked with golden ink on the screens. Films such as 'Taxi Driver', 'Mean Streets', 'Raging Bull', 'The King of Comedy', 'Goodfellas' etc. are the result of this successful partnership. Surprisingly, all these movies are accredited as his best works. De Niro's performance in 'Raging Bull' earned him his second Oscar, and he was then cited amongst the most powerful actors of all times. © Pinterest On one hand, he made us witness his darker side, where on the other hand, his light comic roles such as the one in 'The King of Comedy' have remained phenomenal. It displays De Niro's complex character as Rupert Pupkin, a lunatic, crazy mediocre who can do anything to get on television just for a while. De Niro and Scorsese's film 'Taxi Driver' is his most iconic role till date. It takes us to the then dangerous and decaying city of New York. It is yet another shade of a male psyche struck with insomnia. De Niro playing a man dealing with the traumas of war is riveting and an absolute tour-de-force performance. © Columbia Pictures One film worth mentioning here is 'Deer Hunter', which earned him critical accolades. In the recent times, De Niro has kept himself busy doing films with modern day actresses such as Jennifer Lawrence and Emily Blunt. Lately, he starred in 'Silver Linings Playbook', 'Joy' and 'The Intern', where his roles were more on the lighter side but impactful nonetheless. De Niro's work is exceptional which he executes with precision, always. His dedication to giving his best has kept him growing as a performer. To us, he will always remain an irreplaceable gem in the film industry.
  18. TOKYO: Sexual harassment of women should "never be tolerated", Ivanka Trump told an audience in Tokyo on Friday, calling for women to be treated with greater respect at work. The speech came as global headlines are dominated by sexual harassment claims against prominent men in entertainment and politics. The new round of claims has revived memories of her father Donald Trump´s boasts about groping women, which emerged during the US presidential campaign. Speaking at the World Assembly for Women in Tokyo, the US president´s daughter said: "All too often, our workplace culture fails to treat women with appropriate respect." "This takes many forms, including harassment, which can never be tolerated," she added. The issue of sexual harassment has been in the spotlight since bombshell claims against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, with allegations emerging against a host of others in the entertainment industry. Britain´s defence minister quit this week in a harassment scandal engulfing the country´s parliament. The videotape of Trump, which emerged last October, showed Trump boasting about being able to get away with inappropriate behaviour. "When you´re a star, they let you do it," he said. "Grab them by the *****. You can do anything," Trump added. Trump said the comments were "locker-room banter". Several women subsequently accused him of sexual misconduct, which he denounced as lies. His daughter was speaking just two days before Trump arrives in Japan at the beginning of a marathon Asian tour that will be dominated by concerns over North Korea. Ivanka Trump will later hold talks with Abe to lay the groundwork for her father´s trip, which begins in Japan on Sunday. She has joined the US president in hosting high-profile foreign leaders including Japan´s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Germany´s Angela Merkel and Canada´s Justin Trudeau. Ivanka Trump said women should not be defined by whether they work inside or outside the home. "Truth be told, on Sunday nights, after a messy and wonderful weekend with my children, I am far more exhausted than on Friday evenings, after a long week of work at the office," she joked. Speaking at the same conference, Abe said he had a "strong commitment" to women´s rights himself, stressing: "I really feel that Japan has come a long way." "When women live up to their potential, many world issues can be solved," said Abe. The US president and Abe enjoy a close personal relationship and plan to fit in a round of golf in between the diplomacy while Trump is in Japan.
  19. Balls smell. And fact of life is—we've all been there (ask your girlfriend if you'd like). But ball stench is exactly like Global Warming, you see: you can control it before it strikes. Howbeit, there's a lot to know about how to stop it. Maybe it calls for more ***, better positions than the missionary or daily indulgence in some 69. Bad news: we're kidding. Maybe not as pleasurable as a bang, but funky-crotch-control isn't annoying either. The baseline is simple: it can't reek of salad (you hate it). If your Eau de toilette down there isn't as fresh as a Lilly, these simple habits will definitely win you 'Junk Of The Season'. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Shower. That's All. Shove your hands in there, and clean it. Don't just rinse it. Sure, you're subjecting a body wash/shower gel to your scrotum daily, but that's not enough. Grab a wash cloth and rub (scrub) it all over. A wash cloth, not a hand towel—there's a whole world of difference. You could obviously pick the loofah next, but chances are, you'd find it too rough. So let it be, a wash cloth will toss all your dead skin cells away anyway. Shower Post A Workout Too. This may sound uncanny, but most men don't take showers post workouts. Maybe because they're lazy or just plain unhygienic (and that's not cool). Sweat is the most common odour-causing element up your crotch, which is obviously produced in plenty through a stressful (or not) workout. Point being, you need to knock out sweat before it's too late. © Thinkstock/Getty Images And Post The Shower, Dry Yourself. It's simple—grab a clean towel and rub yourself dry. Since moisture, ideally, is a crucial combo to bad odour in your sack, ensure you're wading it away by towel-drying yourself. Plus, post that, allow yourself to air dry for a few minutes too. Stuff Cooling Powders/Creams Up There. Dead sure you're into nothing but putting clothes on post a shower. All of us are. But, don't be proud of that. You need to sprinkle some moisture-wicking powder or apply a soothing/cooling cream up the gonads, right after you're done drying. These products will prevent wetness and chaffing up your crotch, resulting in desert-like dryness all day long. Manscape Daily. A lot of moisture gets sucked into your bush daily. Which, eventually, produces sweat and turns into a breeding ground for odour-causing bacteria. So be smart, and shave it. Right from the roots (using a razor/trimmer), and all the way over. Besides, this would also eliminate chances of a prickly jock itch. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Just Wear The Right Underwear. Literally. If your balls are your #Bros, drape them in cotton. But in an ideal situation, a good cotton-polyester blend underwear would be the perfect fit for you. Of course, cotton absorbs moisture easily, but now with the presence of polyester, it'll also drive the moisture on top of the fabric—allowing it to evaporate. Secondly, more room means better breathability, which means less sweat. So try wearing boxers/pyjamas whenever you can. Or if nothing, carry an extra pair of undies to change in the day. Fix Your Jock Itch. That's All We're Saying. In textbook knowledge, jock itches are fungal infections. Maybe very minor, but if not looked into, can really turn awry. Plus, are great production houses of bad crotch odour. Point being, grab an anti-fungal cream and treat the itch. Don't sit it on for days and wait for it to worsen. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Lose Weight For Your Own Good. Not every guy is fit or toned to the gods. A lot of us are obese, bigger than usual or just plain overweight. More weight means more fat/scraggly skin in and around your sack. Which to be honest, does result in excessive friction, eventually again, producing sweat. Result? Bad odour. So basically, chop the junk off your life (the food, we mean). And If Nothing, Use Simple Home Remedies. Rule 1 of kicking bad sack odour, is to control/balance the pH level of it's skin. Options such as Apple Cider Vinegar, Baking Soda, Lemon juice, Tea Tree Oil will do the trick for you. Read more about how to apply them, frequency and tenure. Or well, just consult the doc. Lastly, Don't Stress. Stress and anxiety do trigger your annoying sweat glands. More the sweat, more the number of bacteria, more bad odour. Just chill the hell out and live life king-size, bro.
  20. If you are planning a long road trip or end up spending your entire day in a car due to traffic, the most frustrating scenario could be a phone with low battery. This applies especially to the iPhone as it often runs out of battery. Most people have a charger plugged into the car's USB port or the lighter port in order to get that juice again. What most people do not realise is that charging an iPhone in your car can cause more damage and ruin your phone's battery. © OnePlus You may have noticed your phone takes longer than usual to charge and that is because the USB port in your car provides less electricity than your phone actually requires. When plugging your phone to a port that yields less electricity, your phone will suck up electricity at a much faster rate than the port is capable of delivering. This, in turn, will freeze up your phone or barely charge the smartphone. © Belkin Charging your phone can also be detrimental to your car's battery. Even though your smartphone might not look like something that can affect your car's battery, the odds are high that your device is depleting the car's battery faster than usual. This may not be an issue for new car owners or cars with newer batteries; however, you may want to stop using the car's port right now! © Xiaomi We suggest you invest in a good power bank to avoid low battery problems as it can deliver a similar electricity output to wall chargers. If you are an iPhone user who has recently updated to iOS 11 and want to know better ways to save battery, you can have a look here So here are some tips to remember when you're stuck in traffic next time: 1. Charging your phone in your car can harm your phone. 2. Using a low electricity output port can damage your phone's battery and charging cable. 3. It can drain your car's battery faster than usual 4. Use a portable charger or wait till you get home
  21. KARACHI: Former petroleum minister Dr Asim remarked that since its inception Pakistan has never been self-reliant. ?We have always depended on foreign loans for development,? he remarked during a press conference of Pakistan Peoples Party leaders on Saturday. ?What will become of us without external funding?? The leader also lashed out at the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz?s government and claimed that the government has failed in every way. They mortgaged the country's assets and then took loans, he said, adding that PML-N?s four years in power proved to be very disappointing for the country?s economy. The PML-N is trying its best to get overthrown, he added. He also remarked that the institutions have the right to speak up. On the other hand, Senator Saleem Mandviwalla weighed in on Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal?s statement regarding Director General Inter Services Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor?s views on the economy and said: ?Iqbal has no idea about the economy.? ?Ahsan Iqbal has been sent to the US to talk to International Monetary Fund,? he remarked. World bank has said that the country will be bankrupt within four months, he claimed, adding for the first time, World Bank refused to meet the delegation from Pakistan. ?Army's stance on the economy is absolutely correct,? remarked Saleem Mandviwala.
  22. It's National Coming Out Day today, boys and girls. Which means, that as you read this sentence, thousands of men and women are pushing past their sweaters and bad decisions from 2007, and stepping out of their closets (into their out-and-proud sexualities). I'll tell you something – whether you are 14 or 40, coming out can be an ordeal, but that's a story for another time. If your friend is lucky: everything will go well, and the two of you will be downing shots at the bar later tonight. But if it doesn't, you – yes, you – owe it to him to make his life a whole lot easier. To help you in 'your' journey of acceptance, here are a few things you shouldn't say when a friend (or a sibling) comes out to you this National Coming Out Day: 1. 'Oh that's amazing, dude. But wait a minute, you won't hit on me now, will you, ha-ha?' No, because you clearly aren't my type. If you were, we would not be friends in the first place – I'd just be gushing about you to my best friend. 2. 'Do you know what? I always knew it.' When someone comes out to you, it's an exhilarating feeling – it's full of the giddiness that comes with riding a rollercoaster. Telling someone that you already knew (even if you did) is like pulling the handbrakes. 3. 'Maybe if you only started playing more sport, you never know…' This is when I make a list of all the sportsmen in the world who are gay. Stop with the stereotyping – it wasn't cool back in 1966; it isn't cool in 2017. 4. 'Haha, is this just because you've not had a girlfriend yet?' Ditch the biology book when you are wondering what your gay friend does behind closed doors – love has nothing to do with how things fit, because it's not the big 5000-piece jigsaw puzzle that we all assume it to be. 5. 'I don't really know what to say right now, bro.' If you don't, sometimes a hug would do – there's nothing worse than radio silence. Be normal, the best reactions aren't even worth remembering because they felt so natural. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 6. 'So you the guy or the girl?' Get out. 7. 'Whoa, when did you decide you want to be gay?' The same way you decided to be straight. 8. 'But bro, do you have AIDS? Let's get it straight (pun intended). AIDS is not a gay disease. On the other hand, sir, you suffer from something far worse. Ignorance. 9. 'Well, duh!' Read point two, but only slap yourself around your head this time. 10. 'Why didn't you tell me sooner?' Making someone's coming out process about you is usually not the best idea. Focus on them and their experience instead? Let's get out those medals of honour. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 11. 'Man, now you can help me with my shopping!' The fact that gay men love to shop is probably the worst stereotype that ever exists. That, and the jazz hands. Just wear what you want to, you'll look great. 12. 'No, you are not.' Do you know what you are not? A nice person. 13. 'Let's go hit the clubs, mate!' Yes, thank you. But that's not why I just told you something this important, right? 14. 'Are you really sure about this? Maybe it's just a phase, you never know? Remember, back when I was younger and I….' Being able to finally feel comfortable in your skin is the best feeling in the world. Someone wanting to share that feeling with you is like wanting to share a large ice cream sundae on a hot summer day. Cherish it. 15. 'You mean you are bisexual, right?' No. Gay. G-A-Y. Get that? © Thinkstock/Getty Images Now that you've finished reading the guide, how about you go help your friend with the closet door instead? Those shackles can be tough to pry open, and they could use all the help they could get. Move along.
  23. Rebel style is one thing and 'chill' dressing is another. On various occasions in the city of Mumbai, Aditya Roy Kapoor has exemplified both these aesthetics at some point at least. When styled by The Vainglorious, he goes a little overboard with silhouettes/colours/fits and off duty, he's often seen in his Quicksilver chappals, being paired with the most casual gear. However, to be frank, the sight of the latter has never been impressive at all. But well, with this recent outfit, the actor has turned the tables for himself... © Viral Bhayani Let's get real—Mr. Kapoor has always had a bull's eye for chappals. There's no denying that. But instead of sweat patched T-shirts and oversized beach shorts, he paired his flip flops with a rather unusual combo today. Let's begin! The T-shirt, however basic it appears, is a little 'extra' for being just a solid black T-shirt. Plus, the embroidered rose over the invisible pocket is a great addition for garden-chic. © Viral Bhayani The shorts are simple, classic but also celebratory enough for the special screening of a movie he was attending. They're too casual (obviously), but at least they look great. You'd definitely spot the terrific fabric choice too, which obviously...looks extremely luxe. And thank God for the colour grey and not a safe black number! Kudos to the actor's bro-dressing skills, which are so every day, that we wish we could literally live in them. © Viral Bhayani To end it, we're not calling this a great outfit at all. It's absolutely wrong to be worn to a 'special' screening of a movie. All we're saying is—there's a lot that's different from the actor's everyday T-shirt+shorts combo here. And that's commendable!
  24. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson makes a statement to the media that he is not going to resign, at the State Department in Washington, US, October 4, 2017. REUTERS/Yuri Gripas WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Wednesday he had never considered resigning and was committed to President Donald Trump?s agenda, but failed to address whether he had referred to the president as a ?moron,? as NBC reported. The State Department later denied he had even used the word, an issue Tillerson earlier declined to specifically address. ?The Secretary .... does not use that language to speak about anyone. He did not say that,? State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said at a briefing. The top US diplomat, whose tenure has been dogged with rumours about unhappiness with Trump?s policies and rhetoric, said he was as committed to Trump?s agenda today as he was when he accepted the offer to serve as secretary of state. The episode is the latest controversy to embroil Trump?s administration which has witnessed a string of high-profile departures and firings in recent months, including his chief of staff, national security advisor and the former FBI director. NBC reported that in a session with Trump?s national security team and Cabinet officials at the Pentagon, Tillerson had openly criticized the president and referred to him as a ?moron,? citing three officials familiar with the incident. Tillerson sidestepped the issue when taking questions after making a statement at a hastily organised news conference. ?I?m not going to deal with petty stuff like that,? he said, adding, ?I?m not from this place (Washington), but the places I come from we don?t deal with that kind of petty nonsense.? Tillerson spoke after NBC reported that Vice President Mike Pence and other top officials had intervened to persuade him not to resign this summer as tensions rose between him and Trump. ?The vice president has never had to persuade me to remain as secretary of state because I have never considered leaving this post,? Tillerson said. ?My commitment to the success of our president and our country is as strong as it was the day I accepted his offer to serve as secretary of state,? Tillerson said. Nauert said Tillerson and Trump had spoken later on Wednesday and that it was a ?good conversation?. Tillerson did not offer an apology to Trump because ?one was not needed?. Tillerson, the former CEO of Exxon and former president of the Boy Scouts, said of Trump: ?He?s smart. He demands results.? Trump later told reporters in Las Vegas: ?I?m very honoured by his comments. It was fake news, it was a totally phony story. ... It was made up by NBC. They just made it up. ... Total confidence in Rex. I have total confidence.? Trump had appeared to undercut Tillerson over the weekend when the president tweeted that he told him that he was ?wasting his time? trying to negotiate with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over Pyongyang?s nuclear and missile programs. Tillerson offered a vigorous defence of both the US president and his foreign policy even though the White House and State Department have at times appeared to differ on policy. ?President Trump?s foreign policy goals break the mold of what people traditionally think is achievable on behalf of our country,? Tillerson said. Foreign policy confusion The embarrassing episode underscored the sense of disarray that US friends and foes alike have detected in their dealings with Trump?s foreign policy apparatus and could further undermine US credibility in world affairs. Pence, in a statement, said he never discussed with Tillerson the prospect of the secretary of state?s resignation. In a tweet, Trump earlier urged NBC to apologise for its story, but NBC News anchor Hallie Jackson said on air: ?NBC will not be issuing an apology to America as the president is calling for because again ... the secretary did not refute directly some of the key points? in the story. Several NBC journalists who reported the story also stood by their piece, saying on MSNBC that their reporting was true. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has played down any tensions between Trump and Tillerson over their apparent split, most recently over North Korea. Some administration officials have privately described Tillerson as chafing against some of the president?s pronouncements and off-the-cuff decisions, sometimes contrary to advice from senior advisers. One US official said the view of many within the administration was that despite Tillerson?s denial of having contemplated resignation, ?it?s only a matter of time? before he does consider it. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said there was no reason to believe that Trump would give up his habit of publicly contradicting Tillerson and that each time speculation on his future would resurface. Tillerson has often found himself at odds with the president on a range of issues, according to current and former US officials and media reports. He has taken a more hawkish view on Russia and tried to mediate a dispute among key US Mideast allies after four Arab nations boycotted Qatar over its alleged extremist ties. Tillerson also appeared to distance himself from Trump?s response to violence in Charlottesville, Virginia this summer, saying at the time ?the president speaks for himself? when asked about Trump?s values. Senator Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, said Tillerson was working under difficult circumstances because some in the administration are undermining his authority by trying to act as secretary of state on a daily basis. He declined to name names. Corker, who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, was asked whether he supported Tillerson, and said: ?As a team, Tillerson, Mattis and (White House Chief of Staff John) Kelly help separate us from chaos, so I absolutely support ?em. Absolutely.? Tillerson was confirmed by only 56-43 at his Senate confirmation hearing in January, an unusually low confirmation for a secretary of state. Many members of Congress, including Republicans, strongly object to his plans to slash the State Department and foreign aid budgets.

Addressing the media outside the accountability court after Dar?s hearing, Rehman said it is sad that the honourable judge of the Islamabad High Court dismissed [on Tuesday] Dar?s petition challenging the accountability court order without even issuing notices. ?He directed our lawyers that since the Supreme Court has sent the case to the trial court, any objections must be taken up with the apex court-appointed monitoring judge,? informed Rehman. Witness records statements in assets reference case against Dar Accountability Court-I is hearing case of possessing assets beyond known sources of income against Finance Minister Ishaq Dar She said members of the legal fraternity are baffled on the speed with which the case is progressing. ?Nevertheless, Nawaz, his children and Dar are awaiting justice and will continue to appear in court,? she claimed. However, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader hoped no new precedence will be set in their cases. Talking about a video doing the rounds on social media showing a man in a suit leaving the court premises after Monday?s hearing, she said some suspicious activity has been caught on camera and questions are being raised on the Rangers? presence in court on Monday when the police and commissioner denied having summoned them. ?What are those powers who took control of the court that day. I don?t know if they?ve left or are still here,? she remarked. She also chided the National Accountability Bureau for wasting paper, saying the 23-volume reference against the finance minister consists of 11 volumes of the Panama Joint Investigation Team report which contains merely 10 per cent material on Dar. ?NAB has wasted paper making photocopies of unrelated documents,? she said.
