  1. A wallaby on the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Sydney, Australia. Video screenshot obtained on January 16, 2018. AAP/NSW Police/via REUTERS SYDNEY: A wallaby hopping across the Sydney Harbour Bridge held up early-morning traffic in Australia?s biggest city on Tuesday, before being caught downtown by police officers. Police said they chased the animal, which looks like a small kangaroo, over the bridge before dawn. ?Officers took the startled macropod into police custody near the Conservatorium of Music, with the police mounted unit arriving on scene soon after to take it to the zoo for veterinary assessment,? New South Wales Police said in a statement. Video filmed from a pursuing patrol car showed a wallaby, about a meter high, hopping at a clip across the famous arch-span bridge, and a policeman stifles a laugh as he drives along behind it. Nicknamed ?The Coathanger,? the famous arched bridge opened in 1932 and with 8 traffic lanes, 2 railway lines and a footpath and cycleway is the main harbour crossing linking the city with its northern suburbs. ?I?m from the bush, so I?m used to see them running around all over the place but I?ve never seen one so close to the city before,? said a driver who gave his name as Ray, one of several people who called Sydney radio station 2GB about the marsupial. While wallabies and kangaroos are found in both rural and leafy suburban areas, it?s highly unusual to see them so close to a major city centre. Police said the wallaby probably began its citybound journey at a golf club on the harbor?s north shore before it was spotted heading south across the bridge in lane 8 about 5 a.m. (18:00 Monday GMT). ?Traffic controllers...monitored the wallaby as it hopped across to lane 1 and, without indicating, exited onto Cahill Expressway then to Macquarie Street,? police added in a statement, referring to a street in the city centre. It was taken to Taronga Zoo for a veterinary assessment, police said. The zoo could not immediately be reached for comment.
  2. This file photo from Sept 07, 2017 shows England's Ben Stokes reacting during a Test match between England and West Indies at Lords cricket ground in London.?AFP photo LONDON: England all-rounder Ben Stokes was charged with affray on Monday following an incident outside a nightclub, casting fresh doubt over his international future after he missed the side's ill-fated Ashes tour. Cricket chiefs said they would meet in the next 48 hours to decide if Stokes will be allowed to take part in England's upcoming tour of New Zealand, for which he has already been selected. The confrontation in September in the southwestern city of Bristol reportedly left a man with a fractured eye socket. Stokes, 26, was suspended from international cricket until further notice by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), meaning he missed the Australia tour. "The CPS was passed a file of evidence by Avon and Somerset Police on 29 November in relation to an incident of disorder in Bristol city centre," said a spokesman for England's Crown Prosecution Service. World changed for English cricket after Stokes incident: Cook Stokes is currently banned from international cricket while authorities probe his alleged involvement in a late-night fight outside a nightclub "Further material was subsequently received in late December. Following a review of all the available evidence, the CPS has today authorised the police to charge three men with affray in connection with the incident." Stokes and the two other men will appear at Bristol Magistrates' Court on a date to be fixed following the incident in the early hours of September 25 after England had beaten the West Indies in a one-day international in the city. 'Clear my name' Responding to Monday's announcement, Stokes vowed to "clear my name", telling his Twitter followers: "I want to thank all those who have continued to support me in relation to the Bristol incident, not least my family, friends, fans and team-mates. "I gave a full and detailed account of my actions to the police on day one ? the same day as the incident ? and have co-operated at each step of the police inquiry. "I am keen to have an opportunity to clear my name but, on advice, the appropriate time to do this is when the case comes to trial. "The CPS' decision to charge me, as well as Ryan Ali and Ryan Hale, at least means that my account of what happened that night can come out in court and be made public. Until then, my focus is very much on cricket." Stokes had already been ruled out of England's ongoing one-day international series in Australia and his next involvement in senior cricket could be in the lucrative Indian Premier League after he was cleared by the ECB to play in a second season of the franchise Twenty20 tournament. England crashed to a 4-0 defeat in Australia in the absence of the dynamic Durham all-rounder, who is an aggressive middle-order batsman, lively paceman and excellent slip fielder. England drop Stokes after assault arrest Stokes and Hales will miss the game at The Oval. Stokes sparked talk of a possible England recall by playing in his native New Zealand for domestic side Canterbury for a month, but has since returned home to be with his wife and young family. Last week Stokes was included in England´s 16-man squad for the test tour of New Zealand, the country he left as a child when his father got a job in England. But the ECB added that "his involvement remains subject to any relevant legal or disciplinary developments in relation to the incident in Bristol in September". "ECB is aware that Ben Stokes has been charged with affray in relation to an incident in Bristol in September," said a board spokesman. "The board will now convene within 48 hours to decide on Ben Stokes's availability to represent England at this stage. A further announcement will be made in due course." Under English law, affray, which refers to fighting in public, can carry a sentence of up to three years in prison if the case is heard in a crown court. But if the case is tried in a magistrates' court, the maximum penalty is a fine or six months in prison.
  3. KARACHI: Over 1800 Ulema from different schools of thoughts in Pakistan issued a Fatwa (Islamic ruling) declaring suicide attacks to be Haram (forbidden). Details of the Fatwa signed by 1829 clerics emerged on Monday. The ruling states that those who commit suicide attacks, those who order such attacks, those who train such people are all considered rebels against the true spirit of Islam. The ruling further states that the State of Pakistan is in the right to act against such people. It outlined clearly that the act of waging war and bloodshed in the name of Jihad can only be initiated by the State. Those who impose their viewpoints on by force are responsible for spreading mischief on earth (Fasad fil Arz). The ruling also states that in Pakistan, armed conflict in the name of Islamic Law (Shariyat) is forbidden (Haram). Speaking to Geo News, senior analyst Saleem Safi said that after the Constitution of Pakistan the Fatwa a sacrosanct document that provides answers to the questions faced by Pakistan and the Islamic world in light of the Holdy Quran and the Sunaat. The document, signed by the clerics from all schools of thought, will be presented under the title Peghaam-e-Pakistan at a ceremony which will be held at the Presidency on Tuesday.
  4. LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday expressed displeasure over failure of police in arresting the suspect of brutal rape-murder of eight-year-old Zainab in Kasur. Presiding over a meeting of provincial cabinet's Committee on Law and Order, the Punjab CM said that he was under extreme agony and stress due to this case and only wanted the arrest of the suspect. The meeting was briefed on the brutal rape and murder case by the Inspector General of Police (IGP). Addressing the participants, the chief minister said that facts should be brought before the public after the arrest of the suspect so that the victim's family could get justice. He said the killer should not escape justice and get exemplary punishment. Shehbaz further said that all requirements of justice would be fulfilled pertaining to the death of two persons in the firing incidents during violent protests in the city. The chief minister directed the IGP to daily visit Kasur to review progress on both cases and that he could use helicopter of the chief minister for this purpose.
  5. A wild wolf has been found in the northern Belgian region of Flanders for the first time in more than a century, an environmental group said Saturday. Photo: AFP file BRUSSELS: A wild wolf has been found in the northern Belgian region of Flanders for the first time in more than a century, an environmental group said Saturday. "Our country was the only one in continental Europe to have not been visited by a wolf," since the animal began recolonising the continent, Landschap said. Overhunting, industrialisation and urban sprawl progressively led to the disappearance of the wolf from most of Western Europe since the beginning of the 20th century. Since the Bern Convention of 1979, the wolf has gone from public enemy to a protected species as "a fundamental element of our natural European heritage". In some countries, like Romania and Poland where there have always been wolves, people adapt to treat an attack on sheep "like an accident, like a flock that falls into a ravine", says Farid Benhammou, a specialist on predators. But in the new zones of wolf colonisation ? in France and in some regions of Italy and Spain ? there are major tensions, with farmers particularly unhappy at their re-emergence. The wolf detected in Flanders in early January had an electronic tracker collar around its neck which allowed it to be identified as coming from neighbouring Germany. The same animal had been spotted around Christmas in the Netherlands, according to Landschap. "In recent days the wolf has stayed near the Flemish town of Beringen and the military base at Leopoldsburg. The animal has covered 500 kilometres (300 miles) in ten days," the group said. In 2011 hidden cameras picked up images at night of what was very likely a wolf in the Ardennes region of southern Belgium. But without any DNA traces, or any further appearances, the sighting could not be confirmed. Groups in support of biodiversity welcomed the latest news of a wolf detected in Belgium, calling on the government to adopt a strategy to encourage the return of the species to the country on a more permanent basis, including compensation to farmers whose livestock are attacked.
  6. British-American actor Liam Neeson. Photo: AFP file LONDON: British-American actor Liam Neeson has said there is a "bit of a witch hunt happening" in Hollywood over allegations of sexual assault and harassment. Asked about the snowballing series of claims against powerful men, he told Irish television late Friday: "There is a bit of a witch hunt happening too. "There?s some people, famous people, being suddenly accused of touching some girl?s knee or something and suddenly they?re being dropped from their programme or something." Neeson said he was "on the fence" about allegations against fellow actor Dustin Hoffman. "Because when you?re doing a play and you?re with your family ? other actors and technicians ? you do silly things," he told RTE?s The Late Late Show. "You do silly things and it becomes superstitious, and if you don?t do it every night you think it?s going to jinx the show. "I think Dustin Hoffman was... I?m not saying I?ve done similar things like what he did ? apparently he touched a girl?s breast and stuff ? but it?s childhood stuff." Several women have publicly accused Hoffman of sexual misconduct, including two who said he assaulted them while filming 1987 movie "Ishtar" by inserting his fingers inside them. The 80-year-old double Oscar winner?s lawyer described the claims as "defamatory falsehoods". Neeson also questioned the firing of writer and long-time radio host Garrison Keillor over what his radio station called inappropriate behaviour with a co-worker. However, Neeson, who was born in Northern Ireland but also has US citizenship, said he welcomed the general trend towards exposing harassment. "There is a movement happening and it?s healthy and it?s across every industry," he said. He said that as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, he has read "chilling" details about how female labourers were being treated on farms and ranches.
  7. Indonesia?s central bank has issued a fresh warning about trading in cryptocurrencies like bitcoin because of the risk of losses to the public and even a potential threat to the stability of the financial system. Photo: Reuters file JAKARTA: Indonesia?s central bank has issued a fresh warning about trading in cryptocurrencies like bitcoin because of the risk of losses to the public and even a potential threat to the stability of the financial system. Bank Indonesia (BI) has previously said that cryptocurrencies were not recognized as a legal medium of exchange so that they could not be used as a means of payment in Indonesia. ?The ownership of virtual currencies is high risk and prone to speculation because there is no authority who takes responsibility, there is no official administrator and there is no underlying asset to be the basis for the price,? BI spokesman Agusman said in a statement issued late on Friday. He said that virtual currencies could also be used in money laundering and terrorism funding, and due to all these factors could have an impact on the stability of the financial system and causes losses for society. ?(Cryptocurrency) is not a legal medium of exchange. We remind (people of) its risks. When the risks occur, the losses will be borne by the public. We are obliged to protect consumers and protect them from a bubble,? Agusman said by telephone on Saturday. Asked whether such statements from authorities could stir panic among those who had already invested in cryptocurrencies, he said: ?They didn?t consult with us when buying....please help us make the people understand.? Indonesian authorities have been stepping up their warnings and last month BI issued a regulation banning use of cryptocurrencies by financial technology companies involved in payment systems, and said it is examining whether there?s a need to regulate trading on virtual currency exchanges. South Korean authorities this week sent global bitcoin prices temporarily plummeting and virtual coin markets into turmoil when the justice minister, Park Sang-ki, said regulators were preparing legislation to halt cryptocurrency trading. Prices later rebounded on the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp, bitcoin BTC=BTSP to stand at $14,116 in latest trading after touching $12,800 this week., an Indonesian online cryptocurrency exchange, said on its website that bitcoin was trading at 217.44 million rupiah ($16,288) per unit. Some Indonesian merchants, including an online babyware supplier, indicate on their websites that they accept payment in Bitcoin.
  8. Khawlah Noman speaks to reporters in Toronto. Photo: REUTERS OTTAWA: An 11-year-old girl was assaulted in Toronto Friday by a man who twice tried to cut off her hijab with scissors and then fled, police said. Khawlah Noman told reporters that she was walking to school with her younger brother when the man came at her with scissors. "He tried cutting (off) my hijab two times," she said. "I felt really scared and confused. I didn´t feel comfortable that people are doing this." Police described the assailant as an Asian male wearing a black hoodie and glasses. He was said to be about 20, nearly six feet tall and with a medium build. Authorities are investigating the incident, which occurred near the Pauline Johnson school in Toronto's east side, police spokeswoman Katrina Arrogante told AFP. Constable Jenifferjit Sidhu told a press conference that Noman had turned and confronted her assailant, making loud noises to scare him off and then she ran away with her little brother in tow. Afterward, according to Sidhu, the girl noticed a 12-inch cut from the bottom up on the back of her hijab. She and her brother joined a group of other students also walking to school, for safety, but the siblings became separated from the group and from each other at an intersection crossing. At that moment, less than 10 minutes after the first assault, the same man suddenly returned. Smiling, he allegedly tried again to cut off her hijab, before fleeing. "This is a cowardly act of hatred. It does not represent who we are (as Canadians)," Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said in a Twitter message. "We must stand firm in our support of this young girl who was assaulted simply for wearing a hijab," she said. The school serves nearly 300 kindergarteners to grade six students "of diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds," according to the local school board. More than two-thirds speak a language other than English at home.

  10. “Hey Google, turn off the lights in my room after I leave” This may very well be the command you will be giving your Google Assistant powered smart home by the end of this year. We're here at CES and the search giant has literally taken over the annual technology show. Google showcased the power of namely one product — the Google Assistant. © MensXP_AkshayBhalla Google's AI assistant is going to be embedded in every device possible and it was very much prevalent at CES. From speakers to bathrooms to cars, everything had Google Assistant built into them. "We think Assistant is more useful if it's available across all devices and contexts," said Scott Huffman, Google's VP of Engineering in charge of Google Assistant. "It's not just phones or speakers or laptops; it's all kinds of things." To that end, Google is focusing on incorporating Assistant in three major categories at CES: the home, the car and mobile -- which, in the case of the latter, means a smarter pairs of earbuds. The most popular category in which we saw the AI assistant being incorporated was your home. From the top of our heads, we saw Google Assistant powered devices from Altec Lansing, Anker Innovations, Bang & Olufsen, Braven, iHome, JBL, Jensen, LG, Lenovo, Klipsch, Knit Audio, Memorex, RIVA Audio and SoLIS. © Lenovo At the moment, we are only accustomed to smart speakers, however, at CES there were touch screens that let you make calls or smart displays that would let you look up recipes on YouTube, right in your kitchen. Home appliance companies like LG and Whirlpool also showcased washing machines and refrigerators that use Google Assistant. According to Google, Assistant is now available on more than 400 million devices and we couldn't agree more after seeing an agglomeration of Google Assistant powered devices. © Whirlpool Having said all of the above, Assistant will not be limited to home appliances as we saw it deeply integrated into cars as well. Google Assistant is going to be made available through Android Auto and it can do everything from reading out your texts to playing music or helping you navigate your car. © BCCL Google Assistant is already available on over 400 million devices and before you know it, you will be surrounded by it. You will deal with AI in your kitchen, in your car, and even in your bathroom. It won't be long before Google Assistant is going to take over your life and you won't even realise how it will become an integral part of your existence — unless you use Siri or Alexa, of course.
  11. It's always fun to see two legends interact in any way and that is why seeing the Twitter exchange between Roger Federer and The Rock is so exciting. While no one really knows how much Dwayne John follows tennis, but if the actor did end up watching the Australian Open this summer, we now know for sure who he'll be cheering for, and hoping he wins his sixth Australian Open title — and the 20th grand slam crown of his career — at Melbourne Park.

  13. KARACHI: A session of the National Assembly, set to start at 10:30 am today, is likely to bring under heated discussion the rape and murder of a minor girl in Kasur which sent shockwaves across the country this week. The relevant minister will brief the House about the progress made so far to arrest the culprit(s), who raped and murdered seven-year-old girl Zainab before dumping her body in a pile of garbage ? in yet another heinous incident of its nature that triggered protests countrywide as enraged crowds demanded justice. Among the agenda of the House are the passage of COMSATS University Islamabad Bill, 2017 and the Federal Employees Benevolent Fund and Group Insurance (Amendment) Bill, 2017. The opposition is also expected to continue its protest against the delay in tabling of the FATA reforms bill in the house. Normalcy returns to Kasur after violent protests over Zainab's murder, rape Violent protests had erupted in Kasur following brutal rape and murder of seven-year-old Zainab Opposition parties, including the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Jamaat-e-Islami, as well as the civil society have strongly condemned the tragedy and demanded exemplary punishment for the suspect(s). PTI chairman Imran Khan came down hard on the provincial government over the incident. "The parents of the seven-year-old Zainab are also demanding justice from the army chief and chief justice, not the Punjab police and provincial government. The police which is supposed to protect people is busy protecting one family,? said Imran. PAT chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri demanded the suspension of Punjab law minister and inspector general of police over the incident. "The IGP, law minister, and home secretary should be suspended with immediate effect," he said, adding that the chief minister should also be summoned and suspended. Chairman of PPP Central Punjab Qamar Zaman Kaira also expressed deep regret over the rape and murder and the killing of two protestors on Wednesday. According to the Punjab government, this is the 12th such incident reported from Kasur.
  14. Markets in Kasur had been shut down in protest over the incident. Photo: Geo News KASUR: Normalcy seemed to return to Kasur on Friday after several days of protest following the discovery of seven-year-old Zainab's brutal rape and murder. Markets opened after being shut for at least two days as traders announced an end to their strike while traffic began plying on roads that had been blocked by enraged residents protesting the gruesome incident. The minor girl, a resident of Road Kot area of Kasur, had gone missing on January 4 when she ventured out of the house. Her body was found in a garbage pile near Kashmir Chowk five days later. As protests re-erupted in the city on Thursday, the house of local provincial lawmaker Naeem Safdar was ransacked. Police also failed to stop the protesters from ransacking the local government hospital. Violent protests against Zainab?s rape, murder continue in Kasur on second day Residents took to streets in protest, lawyers boycotted courts today Residents protested across the city, including Kali Pul Chowk, whereas the Ferozepur Road, linking Kasur to nearby towns and cities, also remained blocked. Moreover, protest demonstrations over the incident were held across the country, from Peshawar to Karachi. The funeral of the two protesters allegedly killed by the police firing, Shoaib and Mohammad Ali, was held in the city's college ground. Moreover, the funeral prayers of two protesters allegedly killed by police firing a day earlier were held on Thursday. Two policemen and as many civil defence officials have been held for firing on protesters while murder charges have been included in two FIRs registered against 16 unidentified policemen on the complaints of the deceased's brothers.
  15. WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump met his national security team Thursday to decide whether to put the 2015 Iran nuclear deal at risk by re-imposing American sanctions. European leaders queued to beg Trump to renew the sanctions relief that Washington agreed to in the accord, which Trump has denounced as one of the worst of all time. US officials expect Trump to grudgingly sign the sanction waivers once again before they start to expire this weekend -- even if he also imposes new sanctions on Tehran over non-nuclear issues. But the angst in Berlin, Brussels, London and Paris underlined what is at stake: the mercurial US president is quite capable of sabotaging the landmark agreement. America´s allies see the accord between six world powers and Tehran as the best way of preventing Iran´s quest for nuclear arms and a victory for multilateral diplomacy. But Trump argues his predecessor Barack Obama gave away too much to Iran in sanctions relief, without forcing the Islamic republic to end its ballistic missile program and aggressive support for militant groups. "The president still strongly believes this is one of the worst deals of all time," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters as Trump´s meeting started. "One of the single greatest flaws is its restrictions leave Iran free ... to openly develop their nuclear program and rapidly achieve a nuclear weapons breakout capability. Sanders did not say when an announcement would be made. State Department officials initially suggested it could come as early as Thursday, but later said it would not happen before Friday. "The secretary has been at the White House almost every day. He was there yesterday for many, many hours," Assistant Secretary of State for Steve Goldstein told reporters. "The decision meeting is this afternoon," he said. Sanctions relief Trump has already declared that he think the Iran nuclear deal is no longer in the United States´ national interest. By thus "decertifying" the arrangement, he opened a window for the US Congress to reimpose sanctions, but to date, it has not done so -- leaving the issue of the waivers. So far, Trump has continued to follow Obama´s lead in regularly signing sanctions waivers so that US economic measures against Tehran do not "snap back." The deadlines for a number of these waivers to be renewed will fall over the coming week, and Trump now is obliged to decide whether or not to maintain sanctions relief. If he does allow the punitive measures to go back into effect, Iran will accuse the United States of breaking the deal, under which Tehran accepted restrictions on its nuclear program. European capitals will also be dismayed, having pressed Washington to accept that the deal was an international agreement and that Iran has abided by its terms. French President Emmanuel Macron called Trump on Thursday and stressed France´s determination to see "the strict application of the deal and the importance of all the signatories to respect it." The White House said Trump had "underscored that Iran must stop its destabilizing activity in the region." Arms race In Brussels, the European Union and the foreign ministers of Britain, Germany and France presented a united front after talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. "The deal is working, it is delivering on its main goal which means keeping the Iranian nuclear program in check," EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said. The agreement, she said, is "making the world safer and... preventing a potential nuclear arms race in the region". UN inspectors have certified Iran´s compliance with the deal nine times, most recently in November. "It is important now that all parties respect this joint commitment and that our American allies respect it as well," French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said. Iran has said that if the US walks away from the agreement, it is ready to give an "appropriate and heavy response." Zarif took to Twitter after the Brussels meeting to warn that "Iran´s continued compliance (is) conditioned on full compliance by the US." The Iranian said there was a "strong consensus in Brussels today" that Iran was complying with the deal and that "any move that undermines (the agreement) is unacceptable." One of the criticisms levelled at the nuclear deal is that it does nothing to address Iran´s continuing ballistic missile program and meddling in conflicts such as Yemen and Syria. Europeans say these issues should be kept separate from discussion of the deal, but in a nod to US concerns, Mogherini stressed they were raised with Zarif on Thursday.

  17. Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal/File photo ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Foreign Office said on Thursday it is in talks with the United States over matters of mutual interest, including security assistance, but it was too soon to reveal more at this point in time. In his weekly briefing, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said the two countries were in talks over matters of mutual interest, including security assistance, details of which cannot be revealed to media just now. The FO spokesperson shared concern over India?s plan to send satellites into space, allegedly for spying purposes. India intends to send 31 satellites into space on Saturday (January 13), with reports suggesting that the satellites have been fitted with spying devices, he said. India should refrain from military use of space technology and [such measures] that could disrupt the balance of power in the region, Faisal stated. The Foreign Office in its statement also condemned the Quetta suicide bombing and the brutal rape and murder of the seven-year-old Zainab in Kasur. The FO spokesperson informed that ambassadors/heads of mission of resident Missions in Islamabad were briefed on Wednesday by the country?s top civilian and military officials on Pakistan's achievements and challenges in counter-terrorism efforts, and in combating violent extremism. Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua, Chief of General Staff (CGS) Lt Gen Bilal Akbar, and the directors general of Military Operations and Military Intelligence briefed members of the diplomatic corps at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday. The diplomats were provided details about the success of Operation Zarb-e-Azb and Radd-ul-Fasaad, which had eliminated terrorist presence in Pakistan, a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had said earlier. RAW-NDS nexus undermining Pakistan's stability, Islamabad tells foreign diplomats Members of diplomatic corps also briefed about terrorist threat emanating from safe havens and sanctuaries in Afghanistan "They were also briefed about the terrorist threat emanating from the safe havens and sanctuaries in Afghanistan, resulting in loss of human lives and damage to infrastructure in Pakistan," the statement had said. The ambassadors and heads of missions were also briefed on how "Indian belligerence and unhelpful posturing is distracting Pakistan's counter-terrorism efforts and how an active RAW-NDS nexus is verifiably working to undermine Pakistan's internal stability," according to the FO statement. The members of the diplomatic corps were also shown evidence of an Indian campaign of unprecedented ceasefire violations, provocations and insinuations including terrorism in the form of IED attacks against innocent civilians on the Pakistan side of the LoC and the WB, the FO statement had added. The FO spokesperson reiterated that Pakistan has sacrificed the most in the war against terrorism, which cost the country more than 120 billion dollars. Faisal said there was concern over the activities of anti-Pakistan terrorists based in Afghanistan. He also refuted speculation regarding presence of any terrorist leadership on Pakistani soil. The FO spokesperson also urged the international community to stop the ongoing human rights violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
  18. Do you remember the longest time you've gone without masturbating? Maybe it's time to think about it now. Masturbating is a normal part of life and is even extremely healthy according to a lot of studies. But, it turns out that there is also a movement that promotes the benefits of abstaining from masturbation for long periods of time. It became popular on Reddit after a thread linked this movement to a Chinese study which basically claimed that not masturbating could raise your testosterone by 45 percent. Well, that sounds incredible, doesn't it? Taking up this challenge, Luke Eilers decided to see how long he could hold off on 'touching himself'. The movement is appropriately called the 'No Fap Movement' and the biggest thing that motivated Luke was the realization that he was addicted to porn. He admitted that he felt a lot of shame when he finished watching some racy adult videos. Moreover, he also realized that he suffered from a lack of motivation, focus and productivity. Talking about this with fellow YouTuber Andrew Hales, Luke explains how he feels since he started his journey: “The way I would describe it is I kind of just feel like 10 percent better in loads of areas like motivation, confidence, energy, mental clarity. Lots of people talk about superpowers and it completely changes their life; every once in a while, I would get spurts of that.” But only 10% in more than a year? Maybe next time he can abstain for like 4,000 days to complete the 100%. Luke also made sure to clarify that even though he didn't 'pleasure himself'; he still had *** and even looked at porn, but strictly no masturbation. Apparently, as long as you're ejaculating with a partner then that's considered 'healthy'. He also mentioned that he had discovered a new kind of *** where both the people get down and dirty really slowly for more than an hour, but never actually complete the act. He hasn't tried that yet, but he's very interested to find out how it works. But, one of the best things that came out of his 'no fap' experiment was that because of these behavioural and physiological changes, Luke has taken it upon himself to go into amateur therapy via Skype in order to help out guys who are struggling with porn addiction, depression, social anxiety or who just want to talk about women. Such a noble thing to do. Andrew, the guy who interviewed Luke, also saw some changes in himself after trying out the 'No Fap Movement' for just 9 days. Wow, this thing works quickly. So, are you ready to take up this challenge or not?

  21. File Photo ISLAMABAD: The Federal Cabinet will meet today with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in the chair. Among the issues likely to be discussed in today's session is the matter of appointing a new Inspector-General of Police (IGP) for Sindh, Geo News reported. The candidates whose names would reportedly be considered for the IG Sindh post include Sardar Abdul Majeed Dasti, Captain (retd) Arif Nawaz Khan and Mehr Khaliq Dad Lak. [embed_video1 url= style=center] Captain (retd) Arif Nawaz Khan and Mehr Khaliq Dad Lak were recently appointed as IG Punjab and Additional Director-General Intelligence Bureau (IB), respectively. As per reports in the media, the Sindh government earlier this month once again asked the federal government to post Sardar Abdul Majeed Dasti as the new IG Sindh. In a letter to the centre, it mentioned that Lak "has previously never been posted in Sindh and hence lacks experience about the 'dynamics of this province'". According to a copy of the letter obtained by Geo News, however, suggestions to replace Khawaja included Dasti, Ghulam Qadir Thebo, and Kaleem Imam. The letter gave a reference to the provincial cabinet's decision to replace Khawaja and requested the centre to appoint one of the three officials suggested by the Sindh government. Commenting on the development, Syed Nasir Hussain Shah ? Minister of Information for Sindh ? on Saturday said the centre is "creating problems" by attempting to appoint a replacement of Khawaja. The court "orders demand that a 22-grade officer is appointed as the province's police chief," Shah said, following a session of the Sindh Cabinet. "The province cannot continue with a 21-grade IGP when a 22-grade officer is serving the force." Sindh government renews efforts to replace IGP AD Khawaja Provincial government suggests three names to replace incumbent police chief Khawaja to continue The provincial government's earlier attempts to replace Sindh's top cop were dismissed by both the federal government and the Sindh High Court (SHC). Last year, in September, the SHC had dismissed the provincial government's order removing Khawaja as the Sindh police chief and ordered that he complete his due term. The two-judge bench ? headed by Justice Muneeb Akhtar ? had reserved its decision in the case challenging Khawaja's removal on May 30. On April 3, the court had dismissed the provincial government?s decision to remove the Sindh police chief after a group of activists approached the SHC challenging his controversial removal. In its judgment, the court had also declared all postings and transfers carried out in the province after July 7 as illegal. Dasti was also recommended earlier, on October 28, 2017, when Secretary Services for Sindh had proposed that the former replace Khawaja. The suggestion was made during a Sindh Cabinet session, which was presided by Syed Murad Ali Shah ? Chief Minister for Sindh. In his briefing, the Secretary Services had said Khawaja was brought as the IGP Sindh in 2016 under own payscale (OPS), but the SC had later ended all such postings.

  23. Sherawat, along with her French husband Cyrille Auxenfans, began renting apartment for a monthly sum of 6,054 euros. ? Photo: Zee News PARIS: A French court has ordered that Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat be evicted from an apartment in a posh part of Paris for failing to keep up with the rent. In a December 14 ruling seen by AFP on Tuesday, the court told Sherawat and her French husband Cyrille Auxenfans to pay 78,787 euros ($94,000) in rent owed and expenses, giving the green light for their furniture to be seized. The couple began renting the apartment in the pricey 16th district on January 1, 2017, for a monthly sum of 6,054 euros. But according to the owner they never paid the rent, making only a single payment of 2,715 euros. At a hearing in a Paris court on November 14, a lawyer for the couple said they were in financial difficulty. The lawyer emphasised the "irregular" nature of Sherawat's work -- an argument dismissed by the owners of the apartment, who claimed she had earned tens of millions during the rental period. Neither Sherawat nor Auxenfans replied to AFP's request for comment. In mid-December, the actress had denied having a Paris apartment. "It's absolutely not true, if someone has donated one to me, please send me the address," she tweeted in response to media reports about the case. The couple may appeal the eviction order. They cannot be thrown out until March 31, when a moratorium on wintertime evictions expires.

Kohli got out for five runs during the first innings of the first Test against South Africa in Cape Town A fan of Virat Kohli from India, who had attempted self- immolation on Friday after the skipper was dismissed cheaply in the first innings of the Test against South Africa, died today. 63-year-old Babulal Bairva from Madhya Pradesh, a retired railway employee, had set himself on fire after Kohli got out for five runs during the first innings of the first Test against South Africa at Newlands in Cape Town.

Set 208 for victory, India were bowled out for 135 in under 43 overs.
