  1. Ahead of the Nidahas Trophy final, cricket fans or pundits wouldn't have even bothered about the future of Dinesh Karthik in the Indian team, let alone praise him for one of the best finishes in a T20 match. But, during India's thrilling contest against Bangladesh on Sunday, Karthik's artistry with the willow propelled him to one of the rare moments of glory in his, otherwise tumultuous, career. His manic eight-ball 29 meant that India pulled an emphatic win from the jaw of a certain defeat, while Bangladesh - who dominated the better part of the second innings - were left stunned and, later, red-faced. His blistering knock didn't just earn him the Man of the Match award but also allowed the Indian wicket-keeper to find a special place in the hearts of a billion emotional cricket fans across the country. © Twitter From cricket bigwigs to Bollywood celebrities, the congratulatory messages poured in from every corner of the country. But, amidst all the praise, there was a special message from arguably one of the most important people in Karthik's life - his wife Dipika Pallikal. â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/E7HQHWEVAF — Dipika Pallikal (@DipikaPallikal) March 19, 2018 The acclaimed squash player was over the moon and couldn't hide her excitement before tweeting out hearts to laud her husband. The duo, who got married in 2015, make one of the most glamorous couples in the country. Pallikal, being an acclaimed squash player herself, knows too well the effort it takes to succeed at the international level. #proudwife â¤ï¸ A post shared by Dipika Pallikal Karthik (@dipikapallikal) on Mar 18, 2018 at 11:19pm PDT Later, she took to Instagram and shared her happiness following the heroics of her husband. She posted a picture of Karthik and added the hashtag 'proud wife'. Karthik's explosive innings will also serve as a major boost to the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the upcoming eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) teams. After former skipper Gautam Gambhir moved back to Delhi Daredevils, the right-hander will be seen calling the shots as the KKR captain this season.
  2. Photo: Reuters More than 160,189 people are killed by tobacco-caused diseases in Pakistan every year. According to a the latest edition of ?Tobacco Atlas? published earlier this month, Pakistan has made progress on tobacco control in recent years, however, people continue to die and become sick needlessly, and the costs to society from tobacco use continue to mount. A partnership between the American Cancer Society and the non-profit, Vital Strategies, the Atlas measures the tobacco epidemic across the globe. The economic cost of smoking in Pakistan amounts to a whopping Rs143,208 million. This includes direct costs related to healthcare expenditures and indirect costs related to lost productivity due to early mortality and morbidity. The report states that Pakistan can do more to make the proven tobacco control tools work for its citizens? well-being. ?Tobacco harms the health, the treasury, and the spirit of Pakistan,? it noted. More than 125,000 children (10-14 years old) and 1,473,7000 adults (15+ years) continue to use tobacco each day, the report highlighted. Data gathered in 2015 showed that 41.9% more men smoke in Pakistan than on average in medium human development index (HDI) countries. Further, even though fewer boys smoke in Pakistan than on average in medium-HDI countries, there are still more than 86,300 boys who smoke cigarettes each day, making it an ongoing and dire public health threat. Similarly, even though fewer women smoke in Pakistan than on average in medium-HDI countries, there are still more than 2,943,500 women who smoke cigarettes each day. Further, 16.99% more men and 6.92% more women die in Pakistan than on average in medium-HDI countries. The Tobacco Atlas also highlighted the effects of tobacco on development and environment. ?Buying tobacco robs families of the resources they may need to rise out of poverty. A smoker in Pakistan would have to spend 8% of their average income (measured by per capita GDP) to purchase 10 of the most popular cigarettes to smoke daily each year,? it stated. As for the environment, cigarette butts are the most commonly discarded pieces of waste worldwide. It is estimated that 21,432 tonnes of butts and packs wind up as toxic trash in Pakistan each year. There were 129,878 metric tonnes of tobacco produced in Pakistan in 2014. However, tobacco growing is only a small fraction of agriculture in Pakistan, with only 0.14% of agricultural land devoted to tobacco cultivation, as per the report. There were 69.43 billion cigarettes produced in Pakistan in 2016 and cigarette imports exceeded cigarette exports in Pakistan in 2016, which hurt the country's trade balance. The report upheld, ?Complacency in the face of the tobacco epidemic insulates the tobacco industry in Pakistan and ensures that tobacco's death toll will grow every year. Tobacco control advocates must reach out to other communities and resources to strengthen their efforts and create change.?

Photo: Facebook2 ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar took on Tuesday suo motu notice of a photograph circulating on social media which shows a funeral procession passing over sewage in a narrow street.

  4. DUBAI: Skipper Quetta Gladiators Sarfraz Ahmed reiterated on Monday that the players who miscommunicated with the Pakistan Cricket Board and franchises on playing the league's matches in Pakistan should not be included in the next Pakistan Super League drafts. Just like last year, Quetta Gladiators are again running the risk of a depleted squad as most of their overseas players are unwilling to visit Pakistan. England opener Jason Roy, star batsman Kevin Pietersen, Australian veteran Shane Watson and all-rounder Ben Laughlin have expressed unwillingness to visit Pakistan for the knockout games. Speaking in a press conference, Ahmed said: " I think the players should give importance to Pakistan when they accept huge contract offers." Responding to a question, the Pakistan captain said he won't say Gladiators opener Shane Watson betrayed the franchise as his wife did not allow him to visit Pakistan even though he confirmed that he will play in Pakistan. The skipper expressed his hope that the local Pakistani players will play as per expectations in the upcoming matches. Gladiators will play against Peshawar Zalmi in the eliminator at Gaddafi Stadium today.
  5. Police outside a school in England. Photo: Terry Harris More than 400 schools across England were caught in a series of bomb threats on Monday morning. According to The Guardian, Humberside police said more than 400 schools and colleges across the country, including 19 in its region, had received emails ?claiming a device has been planted and demanding cash?. Following this, dozens of schools were evacuated as a precaution. The emails believed to have come from the United States were sent to schools across the UK. Schools in London, Yorkshire, Humberside and Northumbria were all sent the threat and there were similar reports in Suffolk and Essex. Northumbria Police confirmed more than 35 schools in its region received emails threatening to detonate explosives on their grounds if cash was not handed over. ?Schools have been visited by police to reassure them that the incident is being treated as hoax and address any concerns,? Northumbria Police said in a statement. "The emails inform the school that a bomb has been placed on the grounds and will be detonated if they don't hand over cash. Detectives have looked into the emails, which appear to originate from the US, and can confirm there is no viable threat,? the statement added. Police officers visited the schools to reassure pupils and staff. The Metropolitan Police issued a statement saying, "Police are investigating reports of communications made to a number of schools across London today, Monday, 19 March. There have been no arrests. Enquiries are ongoing.".
  6. 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. The ever-growing feud between Mohammed Shami and his estranged wife Hasin Jahan, on Monday, hit a new low after a Pakistani woman named Alishba - who is accused of having an affair with the Indian cricketer and handing him money at the behest of a UK-based man named Mohammad bhai - confirmed meeting the fast bowler in Dubai. Alishba's confirmation came after Shami's wife had alleged that her husband had taken money from the Pakistani girl when he was returning home after India's tour of South Africa. She further accused Shami of match-fixing. Amongst her various sensational accusations, it was this particular allegation that forced the Committee of Administrators (CoA) Vinod Rai to look into the matter closely. © Instagram/@mdshami With the head of its anti-corruption body Neeraj Kumar being asked to submit a report in a week's time, Alishba's admission to meeting Shami in Dubai when he was returning from South Africa has further fuelled the case. Alishba claimed she has been in touch with Shami ever since India's shocking defeat to Pakistan in the 2017 Champions Trophy final. “Yes, I met him. I am a frequent flyer to Dubai because my sister stays in Sharjah. As a person, I really like Shami. As any fan that has idolised a celebrity, they always dream of meeting their idol. I had the desire to meet him (Shami) like any other fan would want to, which I don't think is a big deal,” Alishba told ABP News. © Instagram/@mdshami “I respect him a lot as a person and we just became good friends. I came to know that he (Shami) was flying back home from South Africa via Dubai co-incidentally I was also travelling there going to my sisters' place,” she added. According to Alsihba, she wanted to see who Shami was, after India's defeat in that match in June, and she checked out his social media profile and even messaged him. Alishba, reportedly, had also gone to watch the India-Pakistan final in which Shami also had a heated spat with a fan. © Instagram/@mdshami “I am one of his followers, which is how I became Shami's friend. Just like he has lakhs of followers, I am one among those normal fans. I have sent him messages,” she said. Alishba has also denied knowing any Mohammad bhai or going to the hotel with Shami. © Instagram/@mdshami “No, I directly went to my sister's house. However, I visited the hotel next morning at around 9 a.m. and had a breakfast with him. I personally don't know Mohammed Bhai and have nothing to do with him and there was no involvement of money transaction between us. The person who does not even lie to anyone, how he can be disloyal to his country,” Alishba concluded.
  8. ISLAMABAD: A Change of Command Ceremony was held on Monday to welcome the new chief of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF). Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman, who retired today, pinned the new ranks on Air Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan, the new air chief, and handed over the reins of the PAF to him. "I cannot think of an honour better than heading the best air force," Aman said while addressing the ceremony at Air Headquarters in the federal capital. While speaking about the country's defence, Aman said PAF has played a vital role in protecting the country, including its war against terrorism. Later, Aman pinned the new ranks on Khan and passed over the baton of the PAF to him. Mujahid Anwar has become the 22nd chief of PAF after being appointed by the government. Born on December 23, 1962, Air Marshal Khan was commissioned in GDP Branch in December 1983 and received the coveted Sword of Honour, Best Pilot Trophy and Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gold Medal from PAF Academy Asghar Khan.

  9. A Russian policeman walks outside the British embassy in Moscow, Russia. Photo: Reuters MOSCOW: Russia expelled 23 British diplomats on Saturday in a carefully calibrated retaliatory move against London, which has accused the Kremlin of orchestrating a nerve toxin attack on a former Russian double agent and his daughter in southern England. Escalating a crisis in relations, Russia said it was also shutting down the activities of the British Council, which fosters cultural links between the two countries, and Britain?s consulate-general in St Petersburg. The Russian Foreign Ministry said the 23 British diplomats had one week to leave the country. The move followed Britain?s decision on Wednesday to expel 23 Russian diplomats over the attack in the English city of Salisbury which left former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia Skripal, 33, critically ill in hospital. Moscow announced the measures on the eve of a presidential election which incumbent Vladimir Putin should comfortably win. Putin has cast his country as a fortress besieged by hostile Western powers with him as its defender, and state media is likely to portray the anti-British move in that context. The Foreign Ministry said Moscow?s measures were a response to what it called Britain?s "provocative actions and unsubstantiated accusations". It warned London it stood ready to take further measures in the event of more "unfriendly steps". Relations between London and Moscow have crashed to a post-Cold War low over the Salisbury attack, the first known offensive use of a nerve agent in Europe since World War Two. British Prime Minister Theresa May said Britain would consider its next steps with its allies in the coming days. "We will never tolerate a threat to the life of British citizens and others on British soil from the Russian government. We can be reassured by the strong support we have received from our friends and allies around the world," May told her Conservative Party?s spring forum in London. The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the British ambassador, Laurie Bristow, to its headquarters on Saturday morning to inform him of the retaliatory measures. Bristow told reporters afterwards that Britain had only expelled the Russian diplomats after Moscow had failed to explain how the nerve toxin had got to Salisbury. Britain's foreign ministry said it had anticipated Russia?s response and that its priority was to look after its staff in Russia and assist those returning home. "Russia's response doesn?t change the facts of the matter ? the attempted assassination of two people on British soil, for which there is no alternative conclusion other than that the Russian State was culpable," it said in a statement. Britain's National Security Council is due to meet early next week to consider London's next steps. War of words Russia's response was more robust than expected. The closure of the British Council's Moscow office will sever cultural ties, while that of the consulate-general in St Petersburg will end Britain?s diplomatic presence in Russia?s second city. Russian news agencies cited politicians in Russia's upper house of parliament as welcoming the move to close the British Council, alleging it had been used as a cover by British spies. The British Council said it was profoundly disappointed by Russia's decision and remained committed to developing long-term people-to-people links with Russia despite the closure. Russia has complained that Britain has failed to provide any evidence of its involvement in the Salisbury attack and has said it is shocked and bemused by the allegations. Britain has escalated a war of words with Russia over the incident in recent days. On Friday, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said it was overwhelmingly likely that Russian President Putin himself had made the decision to use a military-grade nerve toxin to strike down Skripal. Britain, the United States, Germany and France have jointly called on Russia to explain the attack and US President Donald Trump has said it looks as if the Russians were behind it. Russia has said it is open to cooperation with Britain, but has refused Britain's demands to explain how Novichok, a nerve agent developed by the Soviet military, was used against the Skripals. Skripal, a former colonel in the GRU who betrayed dozens of Russian agents to British intelligence, and his daughter have been critically ill since March 4, when they were found unconscious on a bench. A British policeman was also poisoned when he went to help them and remains in a serious but stable condition. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova told the Rossiya 24 TV channel on Saturday that the most likely source of the Novichok nerve toxin was Britain itself or the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Sweden or the United States. Those countries, not Russia, had been intensively testing the substance since the end of the 1990s, Zakharova said. The assertion could not be immediately verified. The Swedish and Czech foreign ministers and the Slovak foreign ministry all separately rejected the Russian claim. Russian investigators said on Friday they had opened a criminal investigation into the attempted murder of Yulia Skripal and offered to cooperate with British authorities. Russia offered some cooperation to British authorities after the 2006 London murder of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko too. Britain said the assistance in that case was not enough, and in 2016, an enquiry concluded that Putin had probably approved Litvinenko's murder, something Moscow denies.
  10. Shakib Al Hasan had come to the edge of the boundary and asked his batsmen to come off the field COLOMBO: The International Cricket Council (ICC) Saturday fined Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan over his aggressive behaviour during a thrilling Twenty20 match against Sri Lanka. The sport´s world governing body said Shakib pleaded guilty to the charge of "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game" at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Friday. He was also awarded a demerit point. Bangladesh beat Sri Lanka by two wickets in the ill-tempered match to reach the final of the tri-nation tournament. The incident involving Shakib took place after the second ball of the final over of the Bangladesh innings when he came to the edge of the boundary and asked his batsmen to come off the field. The Bangladesh team alleged that the square-leg umpire had signalled a no-ball and then changed his decision, prompting Shakib to call the batsmen back to the pavilion. Reserve player Nurul Hasan, who was sent on to the field with a message from the Bangladesh dressing room, was also involved in a spat with Sri Lankan skipper Thisara Perera. Nurul also pleaded guilty to unruly behaviour and was also fined 25 percent of his match fee and awarded one demerit point. ICC match referee Chris Broad said Friday´s incidents were disappointing, and the penalties were imposed without a formal hearing because the players did not contest the charges. "I understand that it was... tense and an edge-of-the-seat match with (a) place in the final on the line, but the actions of the two players were unacceptable and cannot be condoned as they clearly went overboard," Broad said. "Had the fourth umpire not stopped Shakib and the fielders remonstrating, and then the on-field umpires not intervened between Nurul and Thisara, things could have become worse." Shakib had led protests against the umpires when the second ball of the final over was deemed legitimate despite Sri Lanka´s Isuru Udana bowling two bouncers. A bowler can bowl only one bouncer -- above shoulder height to the batsman -- in limited-overs cricket, but the decision lies with the umpire. Needing 12 to win off the last six balls, Mustafizur Rahman was run out on the second delivery and there was pandemonium when Shakib gestured to his batsmen to come off the field. The batsmen stayed put, however, and Mahmudullah steered the Tigers to a thrilling win with a six off the penultimate ball. Bangladesh will face India in the final of the tri-series, which has been organised to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Sri Lanka´s independence from Britain.

According to sources, NAB recorded statements of four administration officers and civil aviation officer. Moreover, administration department also submitted a list comprising names of people who have travelled in the helicopter. Other documents showed that the helicopter was purchased on November 22, 2007. On Wednesday, NAB had summoned FATA's former secretary of administration Hassan Muhammad Yousufzai, who is presently serving as FATA's law and order secretary, to record his statement over the matter. He had been serving as the secretary of administration when Imran had allegedly used the government helicopters for personal trips. The Civil Aviation Authority and Administration Department had previously submitted their records to the bureau. On March 8, sources had informed Geo News that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) wing of NAB had obtained details of Imran's use of government helicopters from the provincial administration department and the purchase agreement for the helicopters.
  12. ASTANA/LONDON: Russia is set to expel British diplomats in retaliation for Prime Minister Theresa May?s decision to kick out 23 Russians as relations with London crashed to a post-Cold War low over an attack involving a military-grade nerve agent on English soil. After the first known offensive use of such a weapon in Europe since World War Two, May pointed the finger squarely at President Vladimir Putin and gave the 23 Russians who she said were spies working under diplomatic cover at the London embassy a week to leave. Russia has denied any involvement, cast Britain as a post-colonial power unsettled by Brexit, and even suggested London fabricated the attack in an attempt to whip up anti-Russian hysteria. Asked by a Reuters reporter in the Kazakh capital Astana if Russia planned to expel British diplomats from Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov smiled and said: ?We will, of course.? Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia could announce its response at any minute. Britain, the United States, Germany and France jointly called on Russia on Thursday to explain the attack. US President Donald Trump said it looked as though the Russians were behind it. A German government spokesman called the attack ?an immense, appalling event?. Chancellor Angela Merkel said an EU summit next week would discuss the issue, in the first instance to seek clarity. She added that any boycott of the soccer World Cup, which Russia will host in June and July, was not an immediate priority. INDEPENDENT VERIFICATION Russia has refused Britain?s demands to explain how Novichok, a nerve agent developed by the Soviet military, was used to strike down Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, in the southern English city of Salisbury. But in an unexpected twist, Russian investigators said on Friday they had opened a criminal investigation into the attempted murder of Yulia Skripal and stood ready to cooperate with British authorities. They also opened a murder investigation into the death of Nikolai Glushkov, a former associate of the late tycoon Boris Berezovsky. Glushkov, 68, was discovered dead on Monday in south-west London. British police said they were treating Glushkov?s death as unexplained, but did not think it was linked to the attack on the Skripals. A British policeman was also poisoned when he went to help them and remains in a serious but stable condition. British investigators are working on the theory that an item of clothing or cosmetics or a gift in the luggage of Skripal?s daughter was impregnated with the toxin, and then opened in Skripal?s house in Salisbury, the Daily Telegraph said. Putin, a former KGB spy who is poised to win a fourth term in an election on Sunday, has so far only said publicly that Britain should get to the bottom of what has happened. In a sign of just how tense the relationship has become, British and Russian ministers used openly insulting language while the Russian ambassador said Britain was trying to divert attention from the difficulties it was having managing its exit from the European Union. Russian investigators offered some cooperation to British authorities after the 2006 London murder of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko too. Britain said it was not enough though, and in 2016, a judge-led inquiry concluded that Putin had probably approved Litvinenko?s murder, something Moscow denies. Britain has written to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in The Hague, which monitors compliance with the global convention outlawing the use of such weapons, to obtain independent verification of the substance used. Skripal, a former colonel in the GRU who betrayed dozens of Russian agents to British intelligence, and his daughter have been critically ill since March 4, when they were found unconscious on a bench. ?SHOCKING AND UNFORGIVABLE? British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Britain?s quarrel was not with the Russian people but with the Kremlin. ?We have nothing against the Russians themselves. There is to be no Russophobia as a result of what is happening,? he said. ?Our quarrel is with Putin?s Kremlin, and with his decision ? and we think it overwhelmingly likely that it was his decision ? to direct the use of a nerve agent on the streets of the UK.? The Kremlin?s Peskov called the allegation that Putin was involved ?a shocking and unforgivable breach of the diplomatic rules of decent behavior?, TASS news agency reported. British Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson sparked particular outrage in Moscow with his blunt comment on Thursday that ?Russia should go away, it should shut up?.
  13. FILE PHOTO: The United States Capitol Dome is seen before dawn in Washington March 22, 2013. REUTERS WASHINGTON: As another US government funding deadline looms, a huge spending bill is ground zero in the latest battle between Republicans and Democrats in Congress over President Donald Trump?s push to toughen immigration policy. Lawmakers have until March 23 to work out how to fund an array of government agencies for the next six months. But their behind-the-scenes negotiations are complicated by the immigration issue. Republicans are seeking hundreds of millions of dollars more for the Department of Homeland Security to expand the number of beds for immigrant detainees and to hire more federal agents to patrol US borders and the country?s interior. That is aimed at finding and potentially deporting more illegal immigrants, a central pledge of Trump?s 2016 presidential campaign. ?If you increased the number of beds, the number of people detained in this country will likely be increased,? said Sarah Pierce, a policy analyst for the non-partisan Migration Policy Institute. She said that would help Trump carry out initiatives to expand detentions, including possibly those of children who are in the country illegally. For some immigrants, it could mean spending as long as two years in detention while their cases wind through an overburdened court system, instead of being under looser government controls during the process. Congressional negotiators also are tussling over a Republican provision prohibiting the use of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement funds to facilitate abortions for immigrant detainees. There is also a push for $1.6 billion to begin construction on a border wall, which Trump promised during his campaign would be paid for by Mexico - an unwilling partner in that pledge. That would be a down payment on a construction project likely to end up costing more than $18 billion. During a visit to California on Tuesday, Trump inspected wall prototypes and urged Congress to fund it. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, an advocate for Trump?s immigration agenda, told reporters on Wednesday, ?If there are additional appropriations added, I certainly would be supportive of that.? Democrats, whose votes in the Republican-controlled Congress are likely needed to pass the trillion-dollar spending bill, are pushing back against a wall that they see as a waste of money. A coalition of 83 Hispanic, African-American and Asian-American members of the House of Representatives wrote this week to congressional leaders urging them to also ?reduce funding to DHS?s detention and deportation machine.? Democratic Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham, who heads the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, told reporters: ?It?s wasteful and it?s harmfully targeting and deporting non-criminal immigrants, separating families and terrorizing frankly whole communities.? BATTLEGROUND Appropriations bills in Congress are the lifeblood of Washington policymakers, providing the money to carry out their priorities. Over the past several months, appropriations bills to fund an array of federal programs have been the battleground in which Trump and Congress fought over the future of young people brought to the country illegally as children. That six-month skirmish ended last month with Congress unable to legislate new protection from deportation for 700,000 ?Dreamers? after Trump ended an Obama-era program giving them temporary legal status. At one point, the standoff forced Washington into a three-day government shutdown in January when funding ran out. This time, Republicans hope to get enough money to hire 500 more Customs and Border Protection agents and 1,000 more Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. That would be the start of an eventual increase of CBP?s workforce by 5,000 and ICE?s by 10,000. Democrats have noted that the agencies are falling short in filling all positions Congress already has authorized. Negotiators are expected to work through the weekend as House of Representatives leaders hope to unveil a bill early next week so it can be debated on the House floor by midweek, with a Senate vote by the March 23 deadline. Failure to meet the deadline could result in the second partial government shutdown this year.
  14. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Photo: Reuters Russia will soon expel British diplomats in retaliation for Britain?s decision to kick out 23 Russian envoys over a chemical attack on a former Russian double agent, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday. In London, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson ratcheted up the rhetoric against Russia, accusing it of glorying in the attack on Sergei Skripal, which he described as a way of scaring anyone who stood up to President Vladimir Putin. Britain says Russia is responsible for the poisoning with a Soviet-era ?Novichok? nerve agent of Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33. They were found unconscious on March 4 in the city of Salisbury in southern England and remain critically ill in hospital. Moscow denies any involvement. The Kremlin said the British position was irresponsible and not backed up by evidence. It said Britain would not have to wait long for Russia?s response. Lavrov was quoted by the official news agency RIA as saying the accusations were unacceptable and that British diplomats would be expelled.
  15. I have a very important question for everyone – why are you all so sad? No, it is not me who is saying that we're all sad, but the World Happiness Report which was recently released just ahead of the International Day of Happiness on March 20. The list basically combines economic, health and polling data compiled by economists that are averaged over three years from 2015 to 2017. According to the UN report, India comes in at 133 while considering the happiest countries, and just to give some more context, there were a total of 156 countries, so you know how unhappy we are! Since we are all so sad anyway, here is another nugget of information that should pile on our misery; India is also behind the majority of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) nations, apart from war-ravaged Afghanistan, that stood at 145. So basically, we're not as happy as Pakistan, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Actually, there was a huge margin between India and Pakistan. Pakistan was at 75, Bhutan at 97, Nepal at 101, Bangladesh at 115 while Sri Lanka was ranked 116. But, on a happier note, Finland topped the list, and the reason behind that is access to nature, safety, childcare, good schools and free healthcare which were among the best things in their country. Well, that seems about right. Okay, but coming back to India, why are we sad? I can think of a lot of personal reason, but talking as a whole country, what's the problem? The report is from 2015-2017, so the biggest thing that has happened in this time period is obviously demonetization. Is it that? - Or, is it because our money now looks like monopoly money? - PM Modi's 'achhe din' was too much for us? - Is it because we had to endure so much Virushka? - Or, was it the realization that Taimur, a one-year-old kid, is more rich and famous than we'll ever be? The last thing I would like to say is that we should just follow the example of our favourite Prime Minister. Look how happy he is. I'm just feeling happier looking at him. Arent you?

Recently a piece of news that was doing the rounds involved the Christian missionaries in Agra. Apparently, there have been reports of some missionaries luring Agra slum dwellers with 'samosas' to convert them to Christianity. They came to us, gave us 'samosa' & told us to convert for children's education. A man saw all of this & intervened. As soon as this happened 'Father' changed his clothes. Police was called.

  19. Fielding a fairly new-look side amid the absence of prominent names like MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket got off to a worst possible start in the Nidahas Trophy under the tutelage of Rohit Sharma when they lost the tournament opener by five wickets against hosts Sri Lanka. The Men in Blue did stage a comeback in the second match, defeating the likes of Bangladesh by six wickets in Colombo. And, on 12 March, with revenge in their eyes, the Indian team once again locked horns with the Lankans with a desperate need to settle the old score. Source: Twitter - BCCI It's needless to say that Lanka in its own backyard is fairly competitive and hard to overcome. Thus, Team India needed individual brilliance in all facets of the game to overwhelm Thisara Perera's men. Electing to field first in a rain-curtailed tie, India knew they had to bowl and field well in a bid to restrict their opponents and stay in contention of registering a win. However, the start was far from what India needed or their fans expected. The likes of Shardul Thakur and Washington Sundar were taken to the cleaners by Lankan openers who amassed 24 runs in the first two overs of the innings. With pressure mounting on them, Team India needed a moment of brilliance to get a breakthrough which eventually came through Suresh Raina. What a catch by Suresh Raina...ð± @ImRaina rocks... Mind blowing, fantastic, superbð¤ð#SLvIND #INDvsSL pic.twitter.com/ZlEdRKU8cO — Vikash Gupta (@DigitalBaniya) March 12, 2018 In the third over, Danushka Gunathilaka was looking to deposit Thakur's delivery deep into the stands when he failed to get enough elevation in his shot. While many believed that the ball would eventually reach the ropes for a boundary, Raina flung himself to the left and plucked the ball out of thin air at midwicket, despite being slighty off balance. For a man who dropped an absolute sitter against Bangladesh in the previous game, Raina seemingly found a way to redeem himself with a pouching stunner. His brilliant effort didn't just attract plaudits on the social media, but also silenced the home fans.

  20. Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Monday summoned the National Accountability Bureau's prosecutor general in the counterfeit drugs case. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Monday summoned the National Accountability Bureau's prosecutor general in the counterfeit drugs case. The CJP was hearing a complaint lodged by the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) with the Supreme Court's Human Rights Cell against Everest Pharmaceuticals for manufacturing fake drugs. According to the complaint, owner of the company Chaudhry Usman used his connections and influence to harass DRAP staff. A three-member bench hearing the case today was informed that NAB had withdrawn the notice against the Drugs Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (DRAP) and the proceedings against Everest Pharmaceuticals had been closed. CJP Justice Saqib Nisar orders FIA to present report on counterfeit drugs case A complaint against Everest Pharmaceuticals was lodged with the SC's HR Cell The additional prosecutor general of the bureau informed the apex court that the notice to the chief executive officer of DRAP was issued before the court's order. "The notice was issued through a misunderstanding," the NAB additional prosecutor general informed the bench, to which the CJP responded that it was equivalent to undermining the authority of the court. The bench then ordered the bureau to complete a probe into the case and submit the report to the court. An order to probe into assets owned by NAB's officer Amir Marth was also issued during the hearing. "Any such actions will not be tolerated in the future. Please inform the NAB chairman of my displeasure and annoyance on this incident," said the CJP Nisar. He also issued directives to the bureau to submit the complete record of its proceedings agains DRAP to the Supreme Court. "Anyone who takes any action against DRAP without the Supreme Court's permission will not be pardoned," he said. He directed the director general of the Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) to submit a report on the harassment of DRAP officers within fifteen days and submit a complaint against DRAP Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Riffat Mukhtar and others who were involved in the harassment case. CJP Nisar also remarked that [corrupt officials] collude against anyone trying to honestly perform their duties and adjourned the hearing till March 13 (tomorrow).
  21. No matter how many smart phones come on the market with great cameras, matching up to the quality of a DSLR is always going to be tough. So when we hear about a so-and-so camera costing lakhs and crores, we aren't that surprised because we know the quality would be unparalleled. But the camera that we are talking about today will leave you bewildered. A 95-year-old Leica camera recently fetched over Rs. 19 crores at an auction in Vienna making it the world's most expensive camera. © WestLicht Auction No points for guessing that the Leica 0-series no. 122 is one of those rare, limited edition cameras and is in fact, fully functional. The bid for the Leica 0-series started at a price of 400,000 Euros which sounds nominal given the amount of money it fetched in the end. Quickly, the bid rose 6 times higher and a private collector from Asia emerged as the winner when he bought it off for a record price of $ 2.9 million. © WestLicht Auction Now if like us, you are wondering what is so special about this camera in particular then let us enlighten you. According to a statement by the WestLicht museum, the camera dates back to the year 1923, two years before the first Leica was introduced to the market. © YouTube/WestLicht & WestLicht Photographica Auction The camera was manufactured by Ernst Leitz who produced only 25 of these and out of those, only three are known to still be in their original condition. The camera only weighs 135 gram and had an aperture between f/3.5 > f/12. This record was previously held by another 1923 Leica-O series camera which was auctioned off for 2.16 million euros in 2012. Considering the bidder was willing to spend a bomb on an old (though rare) camera, it's safe to say people's love for vintage things can go to any extremes. Watch the bidding here:
  22. DUBAI: Lahore Qalandars pulled an upset on Sunday by knocking down mighty Karachi Kings in a super over in the 24th match of the Pakistan Super League's third edition at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Courtesy half-centuries by top-order batsmen Babar Azam and Lendl Simmons, Kings set Qalandars a 163-run target to win. In a dramatic chase, the McCullum-led team levelled the score on the last delivery of the innings, taking the contest into the tournament's second super over. Qalandars' top-order batsman Agha Salman contributed 50 off 45, but it was a fiery blitz by Sohail Akhtar which changed the game, his 15 runs off eight balls, including a six and a four, bringing the unthinkable into reality. SUPER OVER The game went for a super over in which, playing first, Qalandars gave Kings a target of 12 runs to win. Fakhar Zaman was run out on the very first ball. Anton Devcich, the man next in with skipper McCullum, took the super over score to 11 runs. Lendl Simmons and Colin Ingram opened for Kings in chase of 12 runs. Sunil Narine took the prize wicket of Ingram on the third delivery of his over. Shahid Afridi hit the last ball of the over for six, but by then it was already too late for Karachi. Second Innings Muhammad Irfan (Junior) took the wicket of Anton Devcich on the very first ball of his over. Devcich missed the leg-side flick which led the ball to hit the middle stump. The in-form opener-batsman Fakhar Zaman fell prey to set up put by the Kings as he slogged towards a mid-wicket area, the ball landed safely in the hands of Denly. Fast bowler Usman Khan Shinwari turned the tables in Kings' favour by dismissing Agha Salman and skipper McCullum in his over. The six by Sohail Akhtar on the 19.3 overs shortened Kings' chase. First Innings Kings' opener Joe Denly (3) departed after giving an easy catch to skipper McCullum on a flighted delivery of legspinner Yasir Shah. Fast bowler Sohail Khan provided a much-needed relief to the Qalandars by taking down the wicket of Lendl Simmons. The opener set up a strong base for the Kings with his knock of 55 runs off 39 balls, with eight boundaries and one six on the strike of 141.02.
  23. ISLAMABAD: President of Pakistan Mamnoon Hussain said on Sunday that he is aggrieved over the growing trend of intolerance, adding that it will put the country on the path to destruction. In a statement, the president said that the dissent should not go beyond the limit of politeness. He said that if there is no aspect of respect in difference of opinion then the society falls victim to ?Fasaad-ul-Arz? (violence). The president?s comments come in the backdrop of an ongoing trend of hurling things at political leaders during their press conferences. Earlier today, a former seminary student hurled a shoe at former prime minister Nawaz Sharif during an event in Jamia Naeemia seminary in Garhi Shahu. On Saturday, a person threw ink at Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif while he was addressing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz convention. Last month, a man hurled a shoe at Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal while he was addressing a workers' convention in Narowal. Following the shoe-attack on Nawaz and the other attacks, a number of politicians came forth with condemnations. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also denounced the attack.
  24. How much do you think a cab driver earns in a year? Maybe just enough to provide his children with basic education and necessities of life, right? But enough to build a hospital? Definitely not. At first glance, Saidul Laskar looks like just another taxi driver struggling to make ends meet but after you get to know about his mission and vision in life, you'd realise he is like no other man. © Twitter Saidul's sister was only 17 when she died of a chest infection in 2004 because he couldn't afford to get her treated in a hospital. Her death obviously left him crushed and the fact that he couldn't find an affordable hospital in time gave him a new purpose in life; he vowed that he would not let anybody in his village suffer the same way as his sister. That's where his journey of building an affordable hospital in his village, Punri (Kolkata) began. But how can a taxi driver have enough money to do so? Saidul decided to convince his wife to sell off whatever jewellery they had to raise around Rs. 3 lakh to buy the land for the hospital. His wife showed immense faith in him and handed over all her jewellery. © Facebook He then moved on to the next step: raising funds by requesting donations from his passengers. Now it's pretty obvious that not every passenger would have contributed to his mission so no wonder he had to struggle for about 12 years. © Twitter However, there was one donor who decided to give up her entire first month's salary. 23-year-old mechanical engineer Shrishti Ghosh and her mother boarded Saidul's cab and learned about his goal. At that time she handed over a Rs 100 note to him but also took down his number too. Soon after, she came to him and gave him Rs. 25,000. And after struggling, saving up and raising funds for 12 long years, Saidul was finally able to achieve his dream last month when the Marufa Smriti Welfare Foundation — the hospital named after his late sister opened. And for her generous contribution, Saidul specially invited Shrishti to inaugurate the hospital. © Times of India This hospital, which will serve people from at least 100 neighbouring villages, is the first one in the area and began its outdoor department operations recently with six beds. However, it is expected to have another 30 beds in the next six months and many locals are coming forward to donate money so that the same is achieved. NGOs and other organisations are also contributing in kind such as in the form of an X-Ray machine and an ECG machine. But this tough journey isn't over yet. The next step is to collaborate with a nursing school and help train local girls to work as nurses at the hospital. We can't help but salute Saidul for his mission and his dedication to achieving his selfless dream for the benefit of other people.
  25. The suspect has been handed over to Kohat police-Geo News ISLAMABAD: Mujahidullah Afridi, the prime suspect in the murder of medical student Asma Rani, was on Saturday handed over to Pakistan via the Interpol. Asma, a third-year medical student in Abbottabad, was in her hometown of Kohat on vacation when, on January 27, Mujahid Afridi allegedly opened fire on her for refusing his marriage proposal. Afridi reached Islamabad and was handed over to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police which was present at the airport beforehand. The suspect has been handed over to Kohat police, sources added. Asma Rani murder: Prime suspect arrested from Sharjah through Interpol IG KP says that it will take some time to bring the suspect back to Pakistan The Interpol on Thursday arrested Mujahid from Sharjah, Inspector General of Police Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Salahuddin Mehsud said during a press conference. The KP police had approached Interpol after the accused, the nephew of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf district president Aftab Alam, fled the country following the incident. The Interpol had placed Mujahidullah on its most wanted list.
