  1. WhatsApp has rolled out three new features which allow users to write a brief group direction and search users in group chat. Photo: REUTERS/file WhatsApp has rolled out three new features which allow users to write a brief group direction and search users in group chat. The first feature allows users to write a brief description of 500 words of the group. The description can be written or updated by admin or any other member of the group. WhatsApp now allows users to have a 500 word description of groups. Photo: Tech Radar1 Users can go in the 'Group Info' section of groups and tap on the 'Description' option to add or change the group description. The group description is available to all members of the group. Like every other WhatsApp feature, whenever the description will be added or changed, everyone in the group will be notified. The second feature allows users to search for participants in a group. This will allow users to search particularly large groups with lots of participants in them. The third and final feature that was rolled out, now allows users to switch between video and audio calls. Users no longer have to disconnect an audio call to connect a video call. Now during the call, an option will appear to switch from audio to video call, sending an invite to the other person to accept. Users can now switch between audio and video call by tapping the ?switch? option. Photo: Tech Crunch All three features will be available to iOS and Android users
  2. Photo: AFP Cynthia Nixon, the US actress who shot to fame as workaholic lawyer Miranda on "*** and the City," jumped into the race for New York governor Monday, unveiling a progressive platform championing economic equality and eschewing big business. The 51-year-old declared her candidacy with a two-minute campaign video posted on Twitter that showed her at home with her wife and children, riding the subway, taking one of her children to school and speaking at liberal political causes. The move confirmed speculation that Nixon would challenge incumbent Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo. If elected, Nixon -- who is a vocal opponent of President Donald Trump -- would be New York state´s first woman and first openly gay governor. The actress and liberal activist, who has campaigned for gay marriage, public schools and access to women´s health care, announced that she was "sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us." "Our leaders are letting us down. We are now the most unequal state in the entire country with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty. Half the kids in our upstate cities live below the poverty line. How did we let this happen?" she said in the video. "Something has to change. We want our government to work again -- on health care, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. "Together we can win this fight," finished the New York-born and raised Nixon, who said she grew up with her mother in what she called "a one-bedroom, fifth-floor walkup." The Trump presidency has seen a surge in women -- particularly Democratic women -- running for office. Only eight of the current 50 US state governors are women. In 2004, Nixon accepted an Emmy award -- the highest accolade in US television -- for her role as Miranda Hobbes from Trump, the fellow celebrity-turned-politician whose current presidency she publicly opposes. Left-field candidate New York, the fourth most populous state in the United States, goes to the polls to elect a governor on November 6. But Nixon remains a left-field candidate with Cuomo very much the favored contender ahead of the Democratic Party primary on September 13. Despite the stardom brought by her role alongside Sarah Jessica Parker on the hit HBO comedy from 1998-2004 that spawned two movies, a recent Siena College poll found that Cuomo is overwhelmingly favored by Democrats to Nixon by 66 to 19 percent. The governor, who is seeking his third term, has downplayed the competition and Nixon has never previously run for office. "I´m not nervous about whoever runs," Cuomo said last week. "They´ll be people who run. That´s called elections and that´s fine." Considered a potential Democratic presidential candidate for 2020, Cuomo is shored up by a bevvy of powerful supporters, but it remains unclear whether he will be badly damaged by the recent conviction of a close friend and aide for bribery. According to The New York Times, Cuomo´s name was mentioned 163 times during Joseph Percoco´s eight-week federal trial. Nixon, who is close to left-leaning New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, echoes some of the language used by 2016 Democratic Party presidential contender Bernie Sanders, who electrified the left before ultimately losing to Hillary Clinton. Her campaign fundraising page stipulates that she "won´t be accepting any corporate contributions" and that "instead our campaign will be powered by the people." If Trump has proved a celebrity can win office as a political novice, the mother-of-three is far from the first US actor to venture into politics. Republican president Ronald Reagan got his political start after acting as a two-term governor of California from 1967 to 1975. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Austrian-born body builder, also served as California governor from 2003-2011. And Former television comic Al Franken -- for whom Nixon once campaigned -- was Democratic senator of Minnesota from 2009 until early this year, when he was forced to step down over sexual misconduct allegations.

  5. Ever since the sensational scenes from Bangladesh's fiery encounter with Sri Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy went viral, the controversial 'Nagin dance' celebration by the Tigers after their two-wicket win the virtual semi-final has been the talk of the town. Since then, everyone seems to have been hooked onto it. Shikhar Dhawan was seen flaying the moves on the field. Indian commentator Sunil Gavaskar couldn't resist the 'Nagin dance' in the commentary box. And cricket fans across the globe, whether they liked it or condoned it, just can't stop talking about it.

As soon as Dinesh Karthik hammered Soumya Sarkar over extra cover for a flat six, the entire Premadasa stadium including the Sri Lankan cricket fans were seen mocking the Tigers with their controversial 'Nagin dance'. The mock celebration further transcended into trolling on the social media with Indian and Lankan fans joining hands to throw insults at Bangladesh. Finally back to earth.

  7. If you ever wanted to bounce around in a weightless environment or jump higher than you normally could — there's now a backpack that can let you do that. A team of researchers from the University of Tokyo has developed a backpack that works like a jetpack and defies gravity. It lets users jump higher and farther than you normally can and it has been named "Lunavity". © Lunavity The company posted a video on YouTube that shows off its virtues where a human is harnessed to backpack and becomes airborne. The person is airborne temporarily, making it appear as if he jumped higher than he could. Once someone is strapped in, the rotors are visible above the head and will be activated once the user jumps. The rotors would fire only when the initial force is instigated by leg muscle. © Lunavity Once the rotors fire, the backpack will keep the user rising until it starts to descend slowly. According to the team, the backpack will let people jump two or three times higher than normal. The backpack was developed for the purpose of augmenting human abilities and may also be beneficial to people with disabilities. The above video shows how the backpack will work even though the company has not shown a working prototype as of now. It could mean that the company has not been able to make a prototype that is safe enough for use by people. © Lunavity As of now, there is no information as to how much it will cost or when it will be released to the public. It's not even entirely certain whether a backpack like this would even become a consumer release. However, the creators must be applauded for conjuring up something straight out of science fiction.
  8. NSA Nasser Janjua (second left) with Dr Abdullah (second right) in Kabul. Photo: Twitter KABUL: Pakistan's National Security Adviser (NSA) Lt Gen (retd) Nasser Janjua met Afghanistan's Chief Executive Dr Abdullah Abdullah during his visit to the neighbouring country. Janjua was visiting Kabul on a one-day trip on the invitation of his Afghan counterpart, Haneef Atmar. In the meeting, details of which were shared by Abdullah on his Twitter account, the two agreed that the Taliban should utilise the new and timely peace offer made by Kabul. Inter-state dialogues for improvement of relations between the two countries were also part of the meeting. Earlier on Saturday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani met Janjua and invited Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to "initiate state to state comprehensive dialogue". The NSA had said in the meeting that Pakistan was ready to make all possible efforts for lasting peace in Afghanistan. Janjua also met Atmar and discussed bilateral relations and regional security issues. A spokesperson of the NSA had earlier observed that a peaceful Afghanistan is a guarantee to lasting peace at home. The representatives of the neighbouring countries are expected to formulate a policy to work together and chalk out a way forward to improve bilateral relations and enhance cooperation. On February 3, Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua, while addressing the Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Solidarity (APAPS) in Kabul, HAD remarked that Pakistan and Afghanistan should engage in concrete cooperation instead of blaming one another. A top-level delegation of Pakistan?s civil and military leadership, led by Foreign Secretary Janjua, had travelled to Afghanistan to attend the Pakistan-Afghanistan Joint Working Group meeting. Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal had confirmed the meeting and said Pakistan had proposed five joint working groups, focusing on ensuring a comprehensive engagement for countering terrorism, intelligence sharing, military, economy, trade and transit interaction, refugee repatriation and connectivity. The FO spokesperson had also reaffirmed that Pakistan will continue to support efforts for peace in Afghanistan, but the Afghan government needs to reach a settlement with different Afghan groups.
  9. A display featuring missiles and a portrait of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is seen at Baharestan Square in Tehran, Iran September 27, 2017. Nazanin Tabatabaee Yazdi/TIMA via REUTERS/Files BRUSSELS/PARIS: Britain, France, and Germany have proposed fresh EU sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missiles and its role in Syria?s war, according to a confidential document, in a bid to persuade Washington to preserve the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran. The joint paper, seen by Reuters, was sent to European Union (EU) capitals on Friday, said two people familiar with the matter, to sound out support for such sanctions as they would need the support of all 28 EU member governments. The proposal is part of an EU strategy to save the accord ? signed by world powers ? that curbs Tehran?s ability to develop nuclear weapons, namely by showing US President Donald Trump that there are other ways to counter Iranian power abroad. Trump delivered an ultimatum to the European signatories on January 12. It said they must agree to ?fix the terrible flaws of the Iran nuclear deal? ? which was sealed under his predecessor Barack Obama ? or he would refuse to extend US sanctions relief on Iran. US sanctions will resume unless Trump issues fresh ?waivers? to suspend them on May 12. ?We will therefore be circulating in the coming days a list of persons and entities that we believe should be targeted in view of their publicly demonstrated roles,? the document said, referring to Iranian ballistic missile tests and Tehran?s role backing Syria?s government in the seven-year-old civil war. The steps would go beyond what a US State Department cable obtained by Reuters last month outlined as a path to satisfy Trump: simply committing to improving the nuclear deal. It also reflects frustration with Tehran. ?We?re getting irritated. We?ve been talking to them for 18 months and have had no progress on these issues,? a diplomat said. EU foreign ministers will discuss the proposal at a closed-door meeting on Monday in Brussels, diplomats said. Analysts say the nuclear agreement, touted at the time as a breakthrough reducing the risk of a devastating wider war in the Middle East, could collapse if Washington pulls out. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif struck a defiant note towards Washington on Friday. ?If the United States makes the mistake of pulling out of the JCPOA, it will definitely be a painful mistake for the Americans,? Iranian state television quoted Zarif as saying. The JCPOA is the formal name of the nuclear deal. Zarif did not refer to the possibility of new EU sanctions. The commission overseeing the nuclear accord said on Friday in Vienna that Iran was meeting its obligations under the deal. The joint document by Britain, France and Germany said they were engaged in ?intensive talks with the Trump administration to ?achieve a clear and lasting reaffirmation of US support for the (nuclear) agreement beyond May 12?. The proposal follows weeks of talks between the State Department and European powers as they try to mollify the Trump administration, which is split between those who want to tear up the agreement and those who wish to preserve it. A US official cited ?very good? talks with London, Paris and Berlin this week in Vienna on the issue. 'Proliferation' of Iranian missiles The document referred to sanctions that would ?target militias and commanders?. It proposes building on the EU?s existing sanctions list related to Syria, which includes travel bans and asset freezes on individuals, as well as a ban on doing business or financing public and private companies. It was strident in its criticism of Iran?s ballistic weapons, which Tehran says are for defensive purposes, saying there were ?transfers of Iranian missiles and missile technology? to Syria and allies of Tehran, such as Houthi rebels in Yemen and Lebanon?s Iran-backed Hezbollah. ?Such a proliferation of Iranian missile capabilities throughout the region is an additional and serious source of concern,? the document said. Still, the issue is highly sensitive because the 2015 pact between Iran and six major powers ? Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the US ? lifted international sanctions that crippled Iran?s oil-based economy. While the EU retains some sanctions on Iranians over human rights abuses, it rescinded its economic and financial restrictions on Iran in 2016 and does not want to be seen to be reneging on the agreement. Iran signed up to limits on its uranium enrichment activity, which it has repeatedly said is for peaceful power generation, not atomic bombs, but has refused to discuss its missiles. The Islamic Republic has dismissed Western assertions that its activities in the Middle East are destabilising and also rejected Trump?s demands to renegotiate the nuclear accord. In the joint document, Britain, France, and Germany set out questions and answers that seek to show that legally, the European powers would not be breaking the terms of the nuclear deal. It said they are ?entitled to adopt additional sanctions against Iran? as long as they are not nuclear-related or were previously lifted under the nuclear agreement. The European powers said new sanctions are justified because Iran ?did not commit further to stop undertaking ballistic missile destabilising activities? under the nuclear agreement. The nuclear deal?s terms did not cover ballistic missile activity.
  10. So, the new 'Avengers: Infinity War' trailer just dropped and I am about to die. Not even going to get into the specifics. Just watch this masterful piece of film-making that made me cry in the middle of work: There is so much we have to talk about. There are so many things you may have missed. So keep coming back here as we talk about each and every second of this trailer: 0:02 - Starting off with the world upside down. Reminds us of Dr. Strange. 0:12 - Good to see Rhodey back on his feet. Still can't get over Black Widow's blonde hair. Don't we all love redheads? 0:19 - No more Tesseract? :'( 0:21 - Hello Gamora, who you talking to? 0:24 - Hello Robert. It's been so long since we've seen your beautiful face. 0:27 - Don't think it's part of the same scene anymore. But, expert editing nonetheless. Let's give the guys some credit. 0:29 - Look at that glorious bald head of Thanos. It's shining brighter than our future. He's the kind of 'God' I'd gladly let kill me. 0:32 - New logo doesn't take half an hour. Great move Marvel. Love you more already. 0:33 - Peter wearing his mask on the side of his school bus? Just when you thought the little guy's life couldn't get more complicated. 0:34 - Customary bridge shot. 0:39 - Did Iron Man just turn his feet into a booster? Where do his feet go? So many questions. Stark tech really is 'out there.' What's he flying towards, though? The stolen ship from Ragnarok? 0:42 - Dr. Strange showing off that time stone of his. Too bad Thanos will get his hands on it and wipe out so many superheroes in this one. :( 0:44 - Good to see the whole Scarlett Witch-Vision story is still a thing. But, if you remember the first trailer, it won't last too long unfortunately. 0:46 - We're back to Wakanda so soon? 0:49 - Look at that glorious beard on Cap. It almost makes up for Black Widow going blonde. 0:50 - 'Your highness.' 0:51 - No more 'Black Museum' trips for you Letitia. 0:53 - The Guardians are here. The Guardians are here. 0:56 - Star-Lord meets Iron Man. Finally, someone who can out talk Stark. Let's not forget Stark's way smarter, though. Perhaps he's using the good old let the idiots talk ploy? 0:58 - Yeah, Tom. That's what we would be doing if we were standing in the middle of Chris Pratt, Robert Downey Jr. and Batista. Don't even think this is acting. Just pre fanboying from the lad. The lucky bugger! 1:01 - Can't wait for Batista to say something. Come on Dave, say something! Talk down to Iron Man. We're dying to see it happen.
  11. Vanessa Trump, a former model and actress, and Trump Jr said in a joint statement on Thursday: ?After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways. WASHINGTON/NEW YORK: The wife of Donald Trump Jr, the eldest son of US President Donald Trump, has filed for divorce in New York, according to court records. Vanessa Trump, a former model and actress, and Trump Jr said in a joint statement on Thursday: ?After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways.? The statement was provided by the Trump Organization, the president?s business empire, which his son helps manage. Further details were not immediately available on the uncontested divorce filing by Vanessa Trump in a New York state court. She and Trump Jr have ?enormous respect? for each other, according to the joint statement, which also asked for privacy. The couple were married in 2005 and have five children. In recent months, Trump Jr, 40, has become enmeshed in an investigation of possible collusion between his father?s presidential campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election. The president has denied any such collusion. Trump Jr arranged a 2016 meeting between a group of Russians and members of his father?s campaign after an intermediary said the Russians offered damaging information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. ?I love it,? Trump Jr responded to the intermediary in an email. He has played a key role in the Trump Organisation since his father entered the White House in January 2017. The president said he would maintain ownership in his hotels, golf courses and hundreds of other businesses but hand off control to his two oldest sons. The Trump Organisation?s website describes Trump Jr as an executive vice president, like his brother Eric Trump. Last month, Vanessa Trump was taken to a New York hospital after she opened a piece of mail containing a threat and a white powder that was later determined to be non-hazardous. Federal prosecutors in Boston earlier this month charged a Massachusetts man with sending the threatening letter.
  12. KARACHI: The Pakistan Navy (PN). on Thursday inducted a dredger and two split hopper barges, said a statement from the PN. The utility ships were built for the navy at Tianjin shipyard, China.

With the induction of this new dredger and its two hopper barges, the dredging capability of PN will be enhanced further. Speaking on the occasion, the vice chief of naval staff stated that Pakistan?s sea trade routes and maritime zones are the lifelines for country?s economy and need to be guarded at all costs. He added that our ports and harbor are the gateways to this economic line and the need to keep them functional at all times mandates a strong navy.

  14. Potterheads, ahoy! The sheer mention of a movie which is even remotely associated with our beautiful world of Harry Potter makes us beam with joy. So when the 'Fantastic Beasts' franchisee saw the light of the day, we were obviously elated. Also, the fact that the movie was well made was a bonus. The trailer for the second part, 'Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald' dropped and while we are obviously excited, one MAJOR plot hole has left every Potterhead bummed. Okay, let's rewatch the trailer once: Only a true HP fan will spot what I am going to announce but in case you haven't managed to realise and you still insist on being a fan, let me explain. The scene where wizards are shows apparating in Hogwarts is like pure sacrilege! What do you think about the 'Apparate within Hogwarts' issue in the trailer? Will it make sense if we get to see the movie?#FantasticBeasts #CrimesOfGrindelwald pic.twitter.com/ys6vN3Pzi6 — Crimes Of Grindelwald (@GrindelwaldFilm) March 14, 2018 Anyone and everyone who has read the books and the history of Hogwarts like the Bible know that it is something that never happened. So obviously, people are super pissed with it. Honestly, David Yates, if you would only read Hogwarts: A History, you would know that you can't apparate onto school grounds... pic.twitter.com/xcJ3yHzi78 — Benjamin Light (@benjamin_light) March 13, 2018 Things I remember from school: Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell You can't apparate into Hogwarts castle or surrounding grounds — Maisye (@amaisyeing) March 15, 2018 I feel you Hermione! DID THEY JUST APPARATE IN TO HOGWARTS? #FantasticBeasts pic.twitter.com/FCuOs3cEKE — Hoch Hech! (@acuthberto) March 13, 2018 Fantastic Beasts did you even listen to Hermione? Read a history of magic? BOY. YA CANT APPARATE INSIDE THE HOGWARTS GROUNDS. pic.twitter.com/Ks8rFfACgu — Natasha Calland (@NatashaCalland) March 13, 2018 However, it is possible that the movie will highlight the events that actually led to apparition being banned in Hogwarts. Okay, then that will be a very interesting angle. Until then, can JK Rowling please throw some light on this matter? The movie is hitting the screens in November, so the wait is long right now.
  15. US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, delivers remarks during a United Nations Security Council meeting. Photo: Reuters The United States said Wednesday that Russia was responsible for a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in England, and urged the UN Security Council to hold Moscow accountable. "The United States believes that Russia is responsible for the attack on two people in the United Kingdom, using a military-grade nerve agent," US Ambassador Nikki Haley told an emergency council meeting. The March 4 attack in the English city of Salisbury left ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in critical condition. US President Donald Trump had pressed Russia to provide answers but did not suggest that Moscow had a hand in the attempted murder. Russia´s ambassador repeated Moscow´s denial at the council meeting and suggested that the attack was a provocation aimed at tarnishing Russia´s image ahead of the World Cup and elections. "Russia had nothing to do with this incident," said Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia. "We have nothing to fear, nothing to hide." Haley said Russia "must account for its actions" as a permanent council member entrusted by the United Nations with upholding international peace and security. "If we don´t take immediate, concrete measures to address this now, Salisbury will not be the last place we see chemical weapons use." She added, "They could be used here in New York or in cities of any country that sits on this council." Russia demanded that Britain hand over samples of the nerve agent for analysis in Moscow and suggested that if Britain was able to identify the chemical, it must also be able to produce it. Britain maintains that attack was carried out with the nerve agent Novichok, which was developed by the Soviet Union and later inherited by Russia. "We demand that material proof be provided of the allegedly found Russian trace," said Nebenzia. Britain called the emergency meeting to rally support in its standoff with Russia over the attack that British Deputy Ambassador Jonathan Allen said was "state-sponsored." "We ask you today to stand by us," Allen told the council. "This was a reckless and indiscriminate act that put at risk the lives of civilians." UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres earlier said the use of a nerve agent was "unacceptable" and called for a thorough investigation.

  17. Russian President Vladimir Putin (left) pictured with US President Donald Trump (right). Photo: AFP file MOSCOW: The Kremlin on Wednesday said ties with the US could not get any worse under next Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, after the sacking of Rex Tillerson. "It?s hardly possible to fall below the floor, so it is unlikely things will get any worse in this regard," President Vladimir Putin?s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a response to a question about the high-level staff changes in the US administration announced on Tuesday. "In any case there of course remains the hope of a constructive and sober approach to bilateral ties. There is always this hope," Peskov said at a regular press briefing. Tillerson in his farewell remarks this week warned Washington must do more to respond to Russia?s "troubling behaviour and actions." "Russia must assess carefully as to how its actions are in the best interests of the Russian people and of the world more broadly," he said. "Continuing on their current trajectory is likely to lead to greater isolation on their part, a situation which is not in anyone?s interest." The US has accused Russia of actively interfering in the 2016 presidential election, stealing Democratic party communications and pushing out disinformation through social media, claims Moscow denies. Pompeo said in his previous role as CIA director that the agency had observed Russian activity to influence the next US election cycle, the November mid-terms.
  18. Known as Cora, the electric aircraft has a dozen small lift rotors on its wings, making it capable of vertical take-off and landing like a helicopter. Photo: AFP WELLINGTON: Pilot-less flying taxis are being tested in New Zealand as part of a project backed by Google co-founder Larry Page that supporters say will revolutionise personal transport. New Zealand regulators late Tuesday approved plans for Zephyr Airworks, a subsidiary of Page's company Kitty Hawk, to develop and test the futuristic air taxis Known as Cora, the electric aircraft has a dozen small lift rotors on its wings, making it capable of vertical take-off and landing like a helicopter. But developers say it is much quieter, meaning it could transport passengers in urban areas using rooftops and car parks as landing pads. "We are offering a pollution free, an emission-free vehicle that flies dependably, we think this is the logical next step in the evolution of transportation," Zephyr chief executive Fred Reid said. The Cora prototype being tested in New Zealand's South Island uses three onboard computers to calculate its flight path and is capable of carrying two passengers. The computers operate independently as a safety measure and the aircraft can deploy a parachute if anything goes wrong. The aircraft, previously known as Zee.Aero, has a range of 100 kilometres (62 miles), reaching speeds of 150 kmh and an altitude of up to 900 metres (3,000 feet). The Cora project envisages they will become so common that "air travel will be woven into our daily lives". Zephyr said using them would be a simple experience for passengers. "You wouldn't have to know anything about flying a plane. Cora could fly for you," it said in a promotional video. "And it would be all-electric, helping to build a sustainable world." Page's company is also developing a prototype personal aircraft called the Kitty Hawk Flyer and unveiled an early model in the United States last year. However, it looked more like a recreational plaything than a flying car, suitable only for flying above water and seating the pilot in an open top cabin exposed to the elements. Cora appears far more robust and is designed more like a traditional aircraft, featuring an 11-metre (36-foot) wingspan, tail and a closed canopy for passengers. 'Like science fiction' The aircraft will not be offered for sale, instead, the public must book trips like they would with an airline or taxi service. Zephyr said it would operate in a similar fashion to a car ride-share -- with Uber, the best-known example -- and is reportedly working on an app so customers could hail the air taxis on their mobile phones. It said Cora took eight years to design but then developers needed a suitable environment to safely test the new technology. They settled on New Zealand because of its uncongested airspace and rigorous regulatory environment, with Reid saying local officials had embraced the idea. "We had no idea what to expect," he said. "They could have laughed us out of the room. We were pitching something that sounded like science fiction." Cora has been given an experimental airworthiness certificate from the New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority. Trialling the flying taxi service will reportedly take six years, with operations based around the city of Christchurch. "This aircraft represents the evolution of the transport ecosystem to one that responds to a global challenge to traffic and congestion, and is kinder to the planet," Christchurch mayor Lianne Dalziel said. Page and Sergey Brin founded Google in 1998, starting out in a Silicon Valley garage and transforming into one of the world's largest companies. He remains chief executive of Google's parent Alphabet but the Kitty Hawk and Cora projects are a personal pursuit, not part of the tech giant's operations.
  19. It has been widely rumoured that new iPhone models may be unveiled later this year at WWDC and there is a high chance it would be the new iteration of the iPhone SE. However, a new report from Taiwan's Economic Daily News suggests that the only new devices that will be announced at Apple's annual event will be new iPads. © Twitter The reports further suggest that Apple is expected to launch an updated version of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and a brand new 11-inch iPad Pro at WWDC 2018. Sources have detailed that the new tablets are supposed to have thinner bezels and feature the A11X processor just like the iPhone X. In fact, it will be very similar to Apple's current flagship device and will also support Face ID. This could mean that the home button will be removed from the tablet as well. The main premise of the report appears to be that Apple will not announce a new iPhone WWDC this year and sources believe that Apple will announce the smartphone in the second half of the year. © Twitter_iDrop News It is worth noting that a new affordable iPhone cannot be completely ruled out and it is expected to have same design updates as the iPhone X. However, KGO securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo cast doubt over the iPhone SE revival as it would cost a lot of money and resources to bring back the affordable device. © Apple This can be further corroborated as other reports have suggested Apple is working on two new OLED iPhone models alongside a cheaper 6.1-inch LCD model. It is highly unlikely that a fourth phone would be launched by Apple as it would cause confusion amongst their customers and may also affect sales of more expensive models.
  20. Chinese manufacturer Vivo has been making great strides in the Android world recently with its Apex phone. This is a device that includes an under glass fingerprint sensor as well as a unique way of avoiding bezels and notches by embedding a pop-up camera. The company is now working on improving smartphone photography, thanks to its new "Super HDR" platform. Unlike regular HDR, which merges 3 to 5 images of the same photo at different exposure settings in order to produce the "best" picture, it uses AI in the process. This enables it to crunch the data from 12 images taken with one tap of the shutter button. © Vivo Vivo says that Super HDR adapts to different scenes and their dynamic range characteristics in order to reduce the unnatural look of regular HDR, which is a result of its image processing. Super HDR optimizes shadows in order to ensure that they are well-balanced, and also look more natural than is the case with normal HDR, or at least that's what Vivo says. The result, Vivo claims, is not just a balanced and properly exposed image but one that also lacks the overprocessed and unnatural look of most tone-mapped HDR images. © Vivo Vivo states that "Super HDR" offers five advantages over the HDR technology now found on most handsets. These include: 1. Highly Adaptable With a wider dynamic range of 14EV, Super HDR can ensure perfect shots in a broader range of lighting scenarios, even in adverse ones. 2. Accurate And Smart Exposure Selection At up to 12 frames, Super HDR has more lighting options for its smart frame selecting strategies to correctly expose all parts of the photo. This retains natural contrast. 3. Intelligent Identification AI-powered scene detection means that each part of the photo can be identified and isolated for processing to ensure even complex photos are perfected. Vivo 4. Natural Looking Results Super HDR produces more natural tones by reorganizing and optimizing the highlights and shadow portions of the scene when merging the frames and ensures the photo naturally matches the original scene as seen by human eye. 5. Perfectly Lit Portraits Super HDR prioritizes the best lighting for the person in the photo and adjusts the background exposure to produce an optimal and natural portrait. There's no word just yet as to when Super HDR will be available for consumers to use, but reports suggest it will ship along with the Apex.
  21. If confirmed by the US Senate, Haspel would become the first woman to head the CIA WASHINGTON: Gina Haspel, a veteran CIA clandestine officer picked by President Donald Trump on Tuesday to head the CIA, is a controversial figure, backed by many in the US intelligence community but regarded warily by some in Congress for her involvement in the agency?s?black site? detention facilities. Haspel was selected as the agency?s new director after the Republican president fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and chose current CIA Director Mike Pompeo as Tillerson?s replacement. If confirmed by the US Senate, Haspel would become the first woman to head the CIA, after serving as deputy director since February 2017. Trump told reporters he has worked very closely with Haspel and regards her as ?an outstanding person.? US officials said that while Haspel was generally held in high regard at the CIA, her nomination raised the unwelcome prospect of greater congressional and media scrutiny of officers who are more comfortable in the dark than in the spotlight. ?This is going to reopen wounds from a decade and more ago, and also invite more oversight of both our analyses and our activities, especially if Gina is confirmed,? said one US official, speaking on condition of anonymity. When she was named deputy director last year, intelligence officers who served with her and congressional officials said that in 2002, during Republican former President George W. Bush?s administration, she ran a secret CIA prison in Thailand codenamed ?Cat?s Eye.? Two suspected members of the al Qaeda militant group were subjected to waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques at the facility. Three years later, still during Bush?s presidency, she helped carry out an order to destroy videotapes of the waterboarding, which simulates drowning and is considered a form of torture, according to those people. Such facilities are called ?black sites? because their existence is unacknowledged by the US government. On Tuesday, some US intelligence officials said reports of her alleged involvement in interrogations involving torture were false. However, they did not immediately provide details. They did not dispute her involvement in carrying out orders to destroy videotapes of harsh interrogation techniques, which was reported in the book?Hard Measures,? by Jose Rodriguez, her boss at the time, and former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow. A CIA spokesman had no immediate comment. Senator Ron Wyden, a Democratic member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on Tuesday he opposed the nominations of both Pompeo and Haspel. ?Ms. Haspel?s background makes her unsuitable to serve as CIA director,? Wyden said.?Her nomination must include total transparency about this background, which I called for more than a year ago when she was appointed deputy director. If Ms. Haspel seeks to serve at the highest levels of US intelligence, the government can no longer cover up disturbing facts from her past.? One key Republican, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, promised to support her nomination. Saying he was ?proud? of her work, Burr said he would ensure her nomination would be considered without delay. ?I know Gina personally, and she has the right skill set, experience and judgment to lead one of our nation?s most critical agencies,? Burr said. Her confirmation hearing has yet to be scheduled. ?There is no question that a director leaving after a year is very turbulent for the agency,? said former CIA Director Michael Hayden. ?That said, leaving Gina and making her the actual director will have a very positive calming influence.? Hayden added, ?I suspect other parts of the government (will) see more turbulence out of this than CIA will.? Human rights groups signalled opposition to Haspel. ?Haspel is a particularly controversial choice, given her reported past involvement in torture at CIA black sites. No one responsible for torture should be leading a federal agency, period,? said Rob Berschinski, senior vice president of Human Rights First. ?The Senate should use her confirmation process to send a strong signal about where this country stands on correcting the mistakes of the past.? Haspel has served in a number of undercover overseas posts in addition to her work in Thailand, including as chief of the CIA station in London and the agency?s base in New York. Then-CIA Director John Brennan in 2013 named her deputy director of National Clandestine Service, but she was denied a permanent promotion in the face of congressional opposition.

Malala?s We Are Displaced which focuses on the refugee experience will come out on September 4 this year. The book which is described as an introduction for young readers to ?what it means to lose your home, your community, and the only world you?ve ever known,? will combine Malala?s own experience of displacement with personal stories of those she met on her various journeys to refugee camps. The 20-year-old activist for female education said in a statement that she hoped to show ?the humanity behind the statistics.? ?We hear about millions of refugees, hundreds of migrants trapped on a boat or in a truck, but it?s only when a truly shocking image appears in the news that people consider what?s really going on." "I know what it?s like to leave your home and everything you know. I know the stories of so many people who have had to do the same. I hope that by sharing the stories of those I have met in the last few years I can help others understand what?s happening and have compassion for the millions of people displaced by conflict,? she said. Malala talks about education, extremism and politics with David Letterman Nobel Peace Prize winner appears on David Letterman?s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction on Netflix Weidenfeld & Nicolson is publishing Malala's new book. Jenny Lord, publishing director for Weidenfeld & Nicolson non-fiction, said, "There has never been a better time to gain a greater understanding of the experience of displacement, which affects so many people in so many ways. These stories that Malala has chosen to share with us feel urgent and vital, and We Are Displaced is a potent reminder that we must do everything in our power to protect the universal right to a home for everyone." In 2014, Malala became the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner ever. As an author, Malala is known for her internationally best-selling memoir, I Am Malala. Last October, she also released a children's book with Puffin, illustrated by Sebastien Cosset and Marie Pommepuy, called Malala's Magic Pencil. The author's net sales proceeds from the book will go to the Malala Fund, the non-profit she co-founded with her father to help ensure girls around the world can get secondary education.

  25. A helicopter crashed in New York City's East River on Sun., March 11, 2018, in this picture obtained from social media. NEW YORK: At least two people died late Sunday when the helicopter they were riding in crashed into Manhattan's East River, officials said. The red chopper, owned by tourism group Liberty and carrying six people including the pilot, fell into the river near the upscale Upper East Side neighbourhood around 90th Street shortly after 7:00 pm (2300 GMT) at the end of a sunny day. "The pilot freed himself, the other five did not," Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro told reporters during a brief press conference. "We are told the five people were all tied tightly in harnesses that had to be cut and removed." Divers rushed to the scene and freed the passengers, two of whom were pronounced dead, amid strong currents and frigid temperatures, Nigro added.

Police chief James O'Neill said the aircraft had been leased by photographers. New York 1 television, citing police sources, reported that five of the six people flying in the helicopter had died, with only the pilot surviving. The cause of the accident was not immediately clear, but local media indicated the pilot had sent a distress signal that mentioned an engine problem shortly before the crash. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the incident.
