  1. If there's a hot potato topic that you're better off avoiding if you hate Twitter flame wars, it's got to be Aadhar. India's biometric-based 'universal identification' was first conceived sometime in 2009, and in less than a decade, it seems to have become one of the most controversial projects ever attempted by our government. These days, if you hear of Aadhar in the news (and you do, a lot), it's usually for creating more trouble in the lives of those it was supposed to benefit. Why Aadhar? © Twitter Why do we even need a universal ID when it's not even a proof of citizenship? The government initially proposed Aadhar in the hope of improving the efficiency of welfare schemes – that a biometric-based ID should, theoretically, reduce corruption and diversion of benefits away from those who are eligible. And which government (or banking system) doesn't like an ID that would be difficult to fake and would enable a more rigorous 'Know Your Customer' process? Other uses that have since emerged include identity verification at airports (just getting off the ground) to reducing tax evasion. All boring, practical stuff, we know, but that's usually the case with the most critical bits, isn't it? The Tech That (Apparently) Makes Aadhar Secure But hang on, we hear you say. If the Aadhar is a one-ID-to-rule-em-all thing-amajing, won't things get worse if it's not as secure? Think of it, we all know how easy it is to get a driving license, isn't it? But that's why the Unique Identification Authority of India, which manages the Aadhar project, went in for biometric authentication: Fingerprint authentication and even iris scanning was hailed as a '100% guaranteed way of ensuring that people couldn't fake this as easily as other government IDs. National IDs Are Often More Trouble Than They're Worth © BCCL India's not the first country to look at a universal ID for its citizenry. The US has its famous Social Security Number system, which has suffered its own share of controversies over identity theft (the US SSN doesn't use biometric information and it's easy to steal someone's identity if you know their 9-digit SSN). Meanwhile, in the mid-2000s, the UK had okayed a biometric-based national ID but later scrapped the project - it was turning out to be too expensive, while privacy and human rights campaigners said it could have many unforeseen consequences. However, there's at least one national ID project that seems to have worked as intended - Estonia's digital ID system. Aadhar Has Always Been Plagued With Controversy Reports of how the Aadhar has made life difficult for Indian citizens keep cropping up every few days - Insurance companies have been accused of refusing coverage, people have allegedly starved after being denied access to subsidised food, some hospitals are reportedly demanding Aadhar cards before admitting patients, leprosy patients have missed out on treatment after authentication errors, while many citizens have complained of being locked out of their accounts by banks and mobile companies. Meanwhile, people have managed to get Aadhar cards for their dogs (no, we're absolutely serious), while some cards have photos of chairs and trees! If you read the news, you'd naturally assume our Aadhar project is as epic a fail as anything the Internet as seen. And you might not be that far off the mark. A Data Security And Privacy Fiasco In The Making? © Twitter The latest controversy to hit Aadhar is whether our data is safe enough (in fairness, people have been asking this ever since the project was started). Recently, a journalist from The Tribune managed to get access to the Aadhar database by paying just Rs. 500 for an account used by Aadhar data collection agents. She also discovered that there could be around one lakh people with illegal access to this database! While the UIDAI has denied the allegations (and has for some reason, filed a complaint against the journalist who uncovered this scandal), it does make you think if our data is really safe. Even if biometrics has not been compromised, it's a safety, security and privacy nightmare in the making. But there's more - French infosec researcher Eliot Alderson says the Android mAadhar app (which you might have installed on your phone) stores sensitive data on your device without really locking it down - if you lose your phone, a savvy hacker could dig out stuff. Big Brother Is Watching © Anation Don't accuse us of going all 'Black Mirror' on you, but there's loads that can go wrong with a faulty national ID system. What if the biometrics has also been compromised - will that enable any scammer to fake your identity to take out a loan? You can't exactly change your fingerprints, can you? Or consider what happens if a bug (or even a malicious act by a government official) gets you 'locked out' from daily life - bank accounts frozen, phones blocked, not allowed to get on to a flight and so on. And finally, there's the simple expectation of privacy - by linking all your activities using a single ID, it's possible for someone with access to the right data to build up a picture of your daily life - where you go, what you buy, the apps you use, the websites you visit… You might be tempted to dismiss this as an exaggeration, but what if a bug in the system gives this access to 'cybercriminals'? To make matters worse, you, as a citizen, can't even complain - the Aadhar Act makes the government and the UIDAI immune from prosecution! What Can You Do For starters, lock your biometrics on the Aadhar website - this makes sure that no one can carry our biometric-based authentication till you go unlock these. Apart from this, some say you should hold off on linking Aadhar to services unless absolutely necessary - You might still need to do so for a financial service but there's no need to use your Aadhar as ID elsewhere. And finally, there's some good news (took their time, didn't they?) from the UIDAI, which is working on a Virtual ID - a 'temporary Aadhar' number that can be used for verification without having to reveal your actual Aadhar number.
  2. Anushka with her adorable pet dog/Instagram Bollywood actress and the newly-wed wife of Indian skipper Virat Kohli is making headlines again ? this time for her love of the furry friends. Anushka Sharma has been named ?Person of the Year? by animal rights organisation PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) for her efforts to protect animals from cruelty. Her recent initiatives include launching her cruelty-free NUSH clothing line, visiting an animal shelter and promoting its work on her social media platforms. She has also been lauded for helping to protect dogs from fireworks and advocating for horses who are forced to pull carriages in Mumbai. ?Anushka Sharma is a proud animal rights proponent whose kindness and initiative know no bounds,? PETA Associate Director Sachin Bangera said in a statement. ?PETA is calling on everyone to follow her lead by eating healthy plant-based meals, helping community animals by speaking up when they are suffering, and always keeping an eye out for new ways to help animals,? Bangera added. Anushka, who married cricket star Virat Kohli earlier this month, was also named PETA?s Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity in 2015. The ?Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi? star is known for sharing adorable moments with animals on her Instagram. She also has an adopted dog named Dude. Keep up your good work, Anushka!
  3. We've all gone through our share of heartbreaks and often wondered what it would be like to be loved unconditionally, without agendas and watermarks that establish a union. Finding the right person to be with for the rest of our lives is one of the most fundamental features of living in harmony and companionship. Sometimes it so happens that the baggage and hurt from previous relationships gets carried forward to newer associations and one may feel burdened to hold on to things until they become irresolvable or redundant. But if you find the right companion to share these burdens with, it becomes a lesson; something that helps you grow through the power and understanding of love. The concept of finding 'the one' has become overtly overrated. We aggressively go on a lifelong search to find the right fit, until we settle for what seems good for us. The concept of finding the one person has always been forced down our throat through fairytales and tales of yore and we set standards so high to find that one person, we seldom forget the intricate truth about finding what we actually need- to grow and learn from the right person who comes your way. Because if you're in love with the right person, you'll grow beautifully as an individual, as the best version of you will be harnessed through this relationship. Your Age Old Emotional Healing Will Be A Lot Clearer When you're loved the way you want to be loved, all your baggage starts to make sense and that's when you start letting go of everything negative you've been holding on to. That's because when you find the right person, you'll be accepted in your truest sense, gaining back that confidence you lost somewhere along the way. They may not feel the intensity of what you're feeling while letting go but just their sheer presence will make a huge difference. (c)Giphy Your Negative Thought Process Will Change We gather some negativity from the past that didn't suit us one bit. The negativity surrounds us and makes us doubt a lot about ourselves. If you're coming from a negative place, from your past experiences, new love will make you see just the positive, letting go of all that negative that's been dwelling for a while. If you felt negatively about certain aspects about life, you will begin to see only positivity and that is the most perceptive change ever you'll notice. (c)Pexels You Will Love Yourself A Lot More Than You Did Stronger relationship teaches us the value of self worth. Agreed, weaker ones challenge self worth but a strong, real relationship will help you love yourself a lot more than what you did before. That's because the person you're with will make you realise how important you are as an individual, not just to them, but as a whole. It's true you don't need anyone to make you realise your self-worth but sometimes when we falter and doubt ourselves, we need that one push to honour who we are as individuals. When you begin to love yourself enough, there is a lot more you can give back in return, leading to a symbiotic, happier association for life. (c)Pexels Your Dreams And Goals Will Always Receive The Highest Regard When you're in love with the right person, they will always put your happiness, dreams and goals as their top priority, along with theirs because they believe in equality. You will learn to do the same because that's what you learn from the right person. They will challenge your aspirations and encourage you to do your best. Not just that, you will be highly encouraged by them to do what you love, every single time, making you realise that there is a great deal of learning in that act or gesture. (c)Pexels You Will Learn Things You Haven't Before A lot of learning goes amiss in toxic relationships and half hearted associations. The idea of compassion and caring usually gets lost. When you find the right person, all the basic elements will come knocking at your door. You will learn how to care for another human being without any strings attached. The idea of honesty and non-judgement will seem natural to you. Trust will be re-established and will not feel stifling but something more innate and natural. It's like re-learning all the right things with the right person! (c)Pexels You Will Learn Never To Settle For Anything Toxic For You The most important learning out of finding the right person is to never settle for anything painful or toxic. The right person will always give you a sense of hope and help you unwind from everything toxic from the past. This will up your benchmark to recognise the good and bad for you and make you see life differently. (c)Pexels If you go looking for the right person and find them, it can turn your world around. You become resilient to life's troubles and find it in yourself to conjure the strength to fight anything. True and actual learning only comes about when you find the right kind of love that makes you realise both, your strengths and weaknesses.
  4. Priyanka Chopra is a very busy person (obviously duhhh!), what with all the Hollywood movies and an extremely hit show. But, the biggest proof of her having no time to do anything comes from her phone. She apparently never ever reads or replies to her e-mails. © Instagram/Alan Powell 2,57,623?!?! Queue the horrified looks from everyone. If you're very particular about your e-mails and reply as soon as you get any notification, this is probably a nightmare for you. You may or may not want to say this to her. Delete your account. — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 9, 2016 Priyanka Chopra was exposed like this by her own co-star Alan Powell. Look how embarrassed and amused she is by this. The look of pure guilt. Guys ... guys ... don't ever email @priyankachopra ... she apparently NEVER reads it! This is is the record ... I defy anyone to beat it. #unbelievable #ithoughtiwasbad #commaplacementconfusesme A post shared by Alan Powell (@alanpowell10) on Dec 5, 2017 at 4:17pm PST Priyanka is very active on social media, so she's probably always on her phone, but why check your mail when you can scroll through Instagram aimlessly for hours. This is probably the most relatable thing about her, at least to me. Because, cute cat videos over boring e-mails, always. Look PeeCee, I haven't reached your level yet, I only have 3500 unread mails, but one day I will make you proud, I promise. But, there are so many people who are winning this game. Sorry Priyanka, people are leaving you behind in this race. Time to catch up. This guy has almost 4 lakh unread mails. How about this? ð — Piyush Raka (@rakapiyush) December 6, 2017 Close enough. Very much close! :-P — Pratik Jain (@pjcooldude58) December 7, 2017 Billion? Whaa? How?

Oops! ð¬ (I get crap from friends and family when they see my email icon on screenshots I send them.) — Ashley Kleiber (@AshleyKleiber) December 7, 2017 See, movie stars are just like us. They ignore responsibilities for as long they can, and then get called out for it by their friends. Priyanka Chopra – The most relatable queen of Social Media. Yaaas!
  5. Time magazine's 2017 Person of the Year is "The Silence Breakers," ? those who came forward with their stories about being victims of pervasive sexual harassment. The Silence Breakers emerged amid a slew of allegations of sexual misconduct and assault by film executive Harvey Weinstein. The number of people who spoke up to expose dozens of sexual predators including famous individuals in Hollywood, politics, journalism, and other industries increased, as more people came forward to accuse Weinstein. The individuals who broke their silence to share their stories of victimization gave traction to the #MeToo campaign, which took off on social media and fueled a worldwide discussion on how pressing an issue harassment has been. One of the women shown only partially on the cover of the magazine is someone who spoke to the publication but "doesn't feel that she can come forward without threatening her livelihood," the magazine's editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal said, as he revealed the cover on NBC's "TODAY" show. "The galvanizing actions of the women on our cover ? along with those of hundreds of others, and of many men as well, have unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s," Felsenthal said in a statement. The photo also includes activist Adama Iwu, actress Ashley Judd, singer Taylor Swift, strawberry picker Isabel Pascual and former Uber engineer Susan Fowler who came forward with their stories. "The women and men who have broken their silence span all races, all income classes, all occupations and virtually all corners of the globe," Time said in its story about the cover. President Donald Trump and China's President Xi Jinping were named as the second and third most influential people, respectively. The magazine, for nearly a century, has identified the Person of the Year ? a person or group that has had the most influence on news. Others on the list include German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Bill and Melinda Gates. Being named the person of the year, however, is not an endorsement. The list includes Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
  6. Mohammad bin Salman The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman is leading the voter of Time magazine's Person of the Year. With 13 per cent of the vote, Mohammad bin Salman is ahead of social media campaign #MeToo (6%) and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick (5%). Hilary Clinton, Pope Francis, Vladimir Putin and Justin Trudeau have four per cent each of the vote. Voting ends on 4 December and the Time?s Person of the Year will be announced on 6 December. In 2016, US President Donald Trump was named Person of the Year and this year there was controversy surrounding him and the title. Last week, US President Trump said he turned down being named Time´s "Person of the Year" after the magazine asked him for an interview and photo shoot but did not confirm he would be chosen. He tweeted: "Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named ´Man (Person) of the Year,´ like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. "I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!" Time responded on its own Twitter account: "The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6." Trump has three per cent of the vote in 2017. According to the Time?s, the editor has jurisdiction over he is deemed Person of the Year but an important role is played by the reader.
  7. No-Shave November or Movember is essentially a moment in time, when all men — who love to grow their beards out, get a hall pass to do so. They are, in fact, applauded in popular culture for flaunting the mug-rug. Think of it like the curious case of the 6-pack abs, but without actually working hard for it. But in reality, beards are actually hard work with all the carefully curated maintenance that goes into it. Well, not for menswear designer — Abhishek Paatni — who (if our memory serves right) has often always had a big a** beard. It's dense, well-maintained and definitely a magnet for the ladies. So how does he do it — while maintaining a model-like body, and a business that makes the coolest designer streetwear in India…? So, for our 30 Days, 30 Beards, we sat down with Mr. Paatni to decode his #bliss life and investigate the curious case of this thicc beard! © MensXP, Style Partner: Park Avenue 1. Do you think beards are overrated? Today men are trying to buy their way into the beard culture which is why I feel it's highly overrated, short-lived and will essentially be like one of those fads that'll fade away soon. 2. How has growing a beard changed your life? Growing a beard has given me a whole new perspective towards dressing up. Because putting a suit has never been more fun. It has also forced me to up my sense of grooming and create a low-key regime for it. © MensXP, Style Partner: Park Avenue 3..What made you grow it in the first place? For fashion (laughs). I grew it to get a new look for my winter suits and overcoats. 4. Do women dig the beard or clean-shaven men? Honestly, women dig a man with great personality and anything that comes along with it. 5. Ever thought of a name for your beard? Next question, please! © MensXP, Style Partner: Park Avenue 6. Razor or trimmer? And how often... Scissors and razor — once a week. 7. Beards need care. What's your routine like? My routine is fairly simple. A dope shampoo and some Johnson & Johnson baby oil. 8. Ever tried beard oils, shampoos, conditioners etc? Never. 9. Your best and worst beard phase? Always the transitional phase which is the one in between the stubble and the actual length. © MensXP, Style Partner: Park Avenue 10. The razor/trimmer you're using right now? Gillette Mach 3. 11. According to you, the most iconic celebrity beard in the world? It has to be designer, biker and all-around cool dude, Justin O' Shea. 12. What's your next big beard move? My next beard move is to not have it for a while and let my skin see some light of the day. --- Abhishek wears a blazer and jeans, all from Park Avenue.

  8. Senior Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz (PML-N) leader and Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah on Wednesday said that the resolution passed by the Senate today was a ?person-specific? move that was made at the behest of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: Senior Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz (PML-N) leader and Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah on Wednesday said that the resolution passed by the Senate today was a ?person-specific? move that was made at the behest of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari. The resolution states that a person who is not eligible to become a member of the Parliament or has been disqualified cannot lead any political party. Senate passes resolution against disqualified person heading political party Resolution questions the move by asking how a disqualified person can make policies for a political party ?The Senate only approved this resolution on one person?s [Asif Zardari] behest,? the provincial law minister said. Sanaullah insisted that the reason that the resolution was passed was Zardari?s wish to refute the allegations of a backdoor deal with PML-N, adding that the resolution holds no more than ?recommendatory value?. ?The very same Senate accepted the Elections Bill 2017, and it can?t now pass a resolution that negates the Elections Act 2017,? Sanaullah said while speaking on Geo News? programme Capital Talk. Defense Analyst Amjad Shuaib (Extreme left), PPP Senator Taj Haider, Hamid Mir, PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah (extreme right). Photo: Geo News Responding to a question if both, the ruling party and opposition had turned democracy and Parliament into a joke, Sanaullah denied PML-N?s non-serious behaviour in this regard, insisting that the Elections Bill 2017 had stayed in the standing committee for weeks before it was moved to the National Assembly, from where it was forwarded to the Senate and eventually approved. He questioned the opposition?s sudden ?alertness,? insisting that he fails to understand how members of the opposition failed to notice the bill all the while it passed through its due course. Pakistan Peoples Party?s (PPP) Senator Taj Haider, however, defended his party and allies? decision to pass the resolution, stating that forward-thinking demands for the house to be set in order, and till the political setup isn?t brought on track, the country can?t be brought on track either because it?s the politicians who have to ?straighten up the systems.? PPP Senator Taj Haider defended his party and allies? decision to pass the resolution. Photo: Geo News ?It is the need of time that there should be no doubts about the political leadership that is now brought forward,? Haider said. In response to a question about the opposition?s motive to pass the resolution the President of the Islamabad High Court Bar Association Advocate Arif Chaudhry said that the ?Senate washed its face and cleared a burden of off its shoulders today.? In response to a question about the opposition?s motive to pass the resolution the President of the IHCBA Advocate Arif Chaudhry said that the ?Senate washed its face and cleared a burden of off its shoulders today.? Photo: Geo News Chaudhry said that the PML-N manoeuvred and manipulated to get the Elections Bill 2017 approved, and added that courts don?t place a lot of weight on ?person-specific? legislations. ?The Elections Bill 2017 and this resolution are both person-specific legislations,? he said. ?Someone ask these parties how many people-specific legislations have been passed in the past four years.? Weighing in on the argument, Defence Analyst Amjad Shuaib said that logic fails to accept the Elections Act 2017 because a ?person disqualified from holding public office can?t be allowed to positively become the unchallenged king who pulls all the string of the civil administration.? Weighing in on the argument, Defence Analyst Amjad Shuaib said that 'logic fails to accept the Elections Act 2017.' Photo: Geo News ?The resolution passed today, by the opposition and its allies, is only a meek attempt at damage control,? Shuaib said, adding that it made no logical sense that a person who is disqualified by the court of law from holding public office can hold a designation in a political party. The Elections Bill 2017 was approved in the Senate on October 2, after it won by a 48 to 47 majority. Among other amendments, the bill (now Act) dictates that every citizen holds the right to be a part of a political party and form a party with the only exception of government employees. The Elections Act 2017 drew heavy criticism from the opposition, which termed the move as the ruling party's 'desperate' attempt to restore Nawaz Sharif as PML-N's president after he was legally barred from holding the position in the July 28 Panama Papers case verdict by the Supreme Court. In sharp contrast from the October 2 decision, the resolution against a disqualified person holding a party office received 52 votes in its favour today.
  9. ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition Khursheed Shah said on Tuesday that a law was amended just to make one person president of a party, in an apparent reference to the newly-introduced Elections Bill 2017, under which Nawaz Sharif got re-elected Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president. The Opposition leader in the National Assembly was speaking to media in his chambers. Shah, while criticising the role of the Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, said that an investigation should be done regarding the role of the two parties in relation to the passing of the bill from the Senate. Shah said that despite contacting the PTI thrice, it didn?t suggest the name for the post of Chairman National Accountability Bureau. ?If they don?t suggest a name, I cannot keep on waiting,? he said. The Opposition leader said that the selection of the Chairman NAB will be done before October 8, adding that he would meet Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi today in this regard. The National Assembly on Monday passed the Elections Bill 2017, paving way for former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to regain chairmanship of the ruling party. The bill was also ratified by President Mamnoon Hussain. A controversial clause in the bill ? which was heavily criticised by the opposition ? allows politicians disqualified from holding public office to lead political parties.
  10. LOS ANGELES: At least one person was killed and another hurt on Wednesday when a rockslide from the famed El Capitan granite monolith in Yosemite National Park in California rained boulders onto a popular hiking trail, a park spokesman said. Search and rescue teams responded to the scene following the incident shortly before 2 pm pacific time and were assessing the situation, along with a park helicopter, Yosemite spokesman Scott Gediman said in a statement. Gediman said crews were working to transport the injured person to a hospital. He said no further details were immediately available. The rocks appeared to have fallen from an area near the popular ?Waterfall Route? climbing trail on the east buttress of El Capitan during an active time for hiking in the popular national park. Yosemite remained open and visitor services were not affected, Gediman said. El Capitan is one of the best-known landmarks in Yosemite and a world-class challenge for rock-climbers.

  12. Imagine Facebook judging you for everything you do online :O
  13. Today is World Gratitude Day. I might be the second person bothering you with this not-so-famous day. Why? Because no one seems to beat Facebook when it comes to wishing someone on any kind of occasion. But, let's hop back to the topic and talk about the significance of World Gratitude Day and how including it in your routine will lead to fulfilling life experiences. © Dancing Gratitude Let's start with its definition Gratitude: It is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return the kindness. It was first celebrated in 1965 and was later on officially adopted by the United Nations Meditation Group. Since then, the 21st of September is recognized as a day to show appreciation for all things, big and small. Actually, if you think about it, no gratitude is small or big. It is just what it is and it feels beautiful when you do so. It could be thanking a higher power for everything you have in your life, no matter how good or bad it may seem at the moment. It could also be a simple gesture, thanking someone for a favor. Basically, it is something that makes that tune match, sync, or connect with the other person, with everyone else. Here is a quote from the influential painter, Pablo Picasso. He said, “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” © Quotefancy So we are here to share and give, that's the purpose of life. That's where the ultimate fulfillment resides. That's the state of pure happiness. The more you give back to society, the more grateful you become. Take that quote as your stepping stone if you have just found the right way or else, keep walking if you are already on the right path. Here are 5 such things to help you be more grateful: 1. Learn from other's warm gestures © Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images It is one of simplest menatl tricks out there. The next time you do someone a favor, see how they react to it. How genuine you feel the gratitude they express to you. For example, if you are someone your teammates can always count on and you are there to help when no one else is. You will receive some genuine gratitude. Learn from this example and continue the good work. 2. Practice gratitude daily © Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images You can be grateful for the air you breathe, the food you eat, the sky you see and many more things. This could prove to be a good morning start for the day ahead. But, every now and then you should be grateful to people as well. This includes your family, your close friends, and sometimes your enemies too. Start with writing 2 unique things you are grateful for today and then follow this pattern. At the end of the month, you will see a list of things you are grateful for. 3. Meditation © Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images It is the one medicine for all your problems. If you start practicing it consistently and appropriately or in other words, if you master this art, you will never need to seek answers to your questions ever again. The answers to your questions will start coming from your inner voice. If you need a change and want to live a happy life, start meditating properly and things will start taking care of themselves. 4. Connect to new individuals © Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Some of us could be more introverted and enjoy being alone for most of the time but do you think it will hurt if you socialize a bit with real people? It's real simple. Connect with a few new people every now and then and see how they live their lives. If you follow this, you will always keep learning something new every day. More reasons to be thankful for. And, before you know it, your list will already be running up to a number sufficient enough to help you live a happy life. 5. Cultivate empathy © Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Most of us know that it is easier said than done. And even after so many failed attempts we all still try it every now and then. Have you ever asked yourself why feel this way? Because it is natural to us. It is in our nature to understand each other better. If you start seeing an event from the other person's point of view, you are able to detach that event from that individual and you just become an observer. An observer who has nothing to do with anything that is going on and you see it like a picture played on the cinema screen. You understand yourself, you understand the person connected to you and you suddenly you become more and more grateful with each passing day.
  14. Priyanka Chopra is often seen actively taking part in creating awareness. On one hand, there is no stopping her in making it big around the globe, on another hand, she is actively seen spending time with children for some or the other cause. Cultures are so different yet so similar. Kalam is arabic for pen and it's kalam in Urdu/Hindi too. We found that funny. Since the kids were learning English I thought Pencil may be appropriate... #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Sep 10, 2017 at 2:07am PDT She is a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and was seen spending a good time with kids in Amman, Jordan. As per reports and statistics, at present, there are 1.3 million Syrians in Jordan and the education system there is trying their level best to fit these children. But this task ain't that easy. The Jordan government is in need of aids to educate these kids. Priyanka visited Jordan to meet these kids and raise awareness about the issue among others. A class full of future doctors, engineers, police officers, teachers. What breaks my heart is they can't even access proper schools as refugee kids... how will they access higher education?? These hopes and dreams.. where do they stand in the reality of their world? The government schools in Jordan have added evening classes and 200 schools to accommodate the growing number of Syrian children which is approximately 120000 children..But it's never enough. The world needs to help. We need to help. PLS GO TO and DONATE whatever you can... let's make this a collective #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Sep 10, 2017 at 2:19am PDT Naturally, she took to social media sharing her experience and talking about the condition there. She also insisted people to do their bit and donate whatever possible to make a difference. This is Ammar(5), Ayat(8), Sulaiman (5 months) Wardshan(9) and they have an elder brother Saleh(10) who works at a grocery store to help supplement the family income, for only 2 Jordanian Dinar (that's less than $3 USD.) Their father is a day laborer. Sulaiman needs a 2nd surgery because he has a clot in his nose. The family moved from Syria to Jordan 5 years ago. When I asked their mother what would be her wish...considering the war hasn't ended, she said "if we can't go home all I want is for my kids to get an education so they can fend for themselves when they are older and help rebuild Syria. We are blessed, we have enough to survive...others have much less." They didn't even have furniture in their home. The largesse of heart and compassion she had through her tears moved me to pieces. PLS GO TO and DONATE whatever you can... let's make this a collective #MissionForChildren #ChildrenUprooted #PCInJordan #ChildrenOfSyria @unicef A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Sep 10, 2017 at 6:20am PDT But it looks like someone wasn't happy about her work and decided to point it out. A Twitter fellow named Ravindra Gautam who also happens to be a film critique mocked the actress for her initiative and said she should focus more on Indian kids than other. He tweeted " I would request @priyankachopra that do visit rural areas of India where malnourished kids waiting for food. #MissionForChildren." I would request @priyankachopra that do visit rural areas of India where malnourished kids waiting for food. #MissionForChildren — Ravindra Gautam (@RavindraGautam_) September 10, 2017 However, this isn't the first time that she is targeted and taunted for her opinions on social media. It goes without saying that PeeCee is one tough girl and gave it back to the guy just like a boss. She replied saying, “Ive worked w/ @UNICEFIndia for 12 yrs&visited many such places. What have u done @RavindraGautam_ ?Y is 1 childs prob less imp than another?” Ive worked w/ @UNICEFIndia for 12 yrs&visited many such places. What have u done @RavindraGautam_ ?Y is 1 childs prob less imp than another? — PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) September 10, 2017 Well, that's indeed the right thing to say and we hope Gautam is already regretting tweeting that out. Priyanka often doesn't take anything seriously when made fun of, but we totally love the way she gives it back to the haters whenever needed! At present, the gorgeous diva is concentrating on creating awareness, raising funds and supporting the children of war, in whatever way possible. Earlier she also visited Zimbabwe where she met kids who were sexually abused. After they taught me their dance moves I showed them one of mine.. it's called the "thumka" #DanceParty #EndViolence #UNICEF #thistimeforafrica #SafePark A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on May 7, 2017 at 6:54am PDT It is obvious that she feels strongly for this initiative and is doing her best to make a difference, we believe it was the discrimination bit that she didn't appreciate at all. And we totally support her for it. All strength to PeeCee for doing such great work!
  15. NEW YORK: Amazon founder Jeff Bezos on Thursday became the world´s richest person, as a jump in the share price of the US tech giant enabled him to overtake Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Forbes magazine estimated. The magazine said its real-time tracking of personal fortunes showed Bezos with a net worth of $90.5 billion, ahead of the $90 billion for Gates. Bezos owns around 17 per cent of the equity of Amazon, which has been expanding from its original mission as an online retailer to a diversified tech firm in cloud computing, online video, computing hardware and artificial intelligence. The company also recently announced plans to acquire US grocer Whole Foods, which could help Amazon expand in that sector. Amazon shares were up 1.7pc at $1,070.72 and have risen some 24pc over the past four months, adding some $17 billion to the net worth of the 53-year-old Bezos. According to Forbes, Gates has been the richest person in the magazine´s annual rankings in March for the past four years and 18 of the past 22 years. Mexican telecom magnate Carlos Slim overtook Gates from 2010 to 2013. Among the billionaires gaining ground is Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who has an estimated worth of some $72.9 billion. While most of Bezos´s wealth is in Amazon, he also owns the private space firm Blue Origin and the Washington Post newspaper.
  16. LEFT: Ike Kaveladze. Image courtesy: NY Daily News; RIGHT: A photo, taken on January 17, 2017, shows Donald Trump Jr. arriving at Trump Tower in New York. AFP/John Moore/File Photo WASHINGTON: An eighth person who attended a controversial meeting with President Donald Trump's eldest son has been identified as a top official of a company founded by a Russian billionaire with links to the Trumps, CNN said Tuesday. The confirmation is the latest development in the burgeoning scandal over the Trump campaign's contacts with Russia after it was revealed that Donald Trump Jr. attended the June 2016 meeting during the campaign hoping to get dirt on his father's rival Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr. had been told over email that a "Russian government attorney" would provide damaging details. Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and son-in-law Jared Kushner also attended. The latest confirmed participant is Ike Kaveladze, the senior vice president of the Crocus Group ? a real estate business headed by Aras Agalarov, the Azerbaijani-Russian mogul who has done business with the Trumps ? according to CNN, citing Kaveladze's lawyer for confirmation of his identity. According to the lawyer, Scott Balber, Kaveladze is a US citizen who went to the meeting at Trump Tower under the impression that he would translate for Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who was thought to have the potentially incriminating information. "The eighth person has been identified by prosecutors and we are cooperating fully with prosecutors as a result of the investigation," Balber told CNN, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into suspicions that Russia meddled in the 2016 US election. Also at the meeting was Briton Rob Goldstone, a music publicist who arranged the encounter. Goldstone is close to pop star Emin Agalarov, who is Aras Agalarov's son and who performed during the 2013 Miss Universe beauty competition that was organised by the Trumps. Also in attendance was a Russian-American lobbyist and Veselnitskaya's translator.

  18. BRUSSELS: Belgian troops patrolling Brussels Central Station "neutralised" a person after a small explosion on Tuesday, a police spokesman said, adding that there were no other casualties and the situation was under control. He could not confirm media reports that the person had been wearing an explosive vest and it was not clear whether the person shot was still alive. The station and the adjacent historic downtown area, packed with tourists and locals on a hot summer evening, was partly evacuated as police set up a security cordon, witnesses told Belgian media. The city has been on high alert for more than 18 months since Brussels-based militants carried out attacks in Paris that killed 130 people there in November 2015 and later bombed Brussels airport and the city's metro in March last year. The police spokesman said: "There was an accident at Central Station. There was an explosion around a person. That person was neutralised by the soldiers that were on the scene. "At the moment, the police are in numbers at the station and everything is under control."
  19. Maybe not everybody should have an access to technology. Because, sometimes people who think they have good knowledge of technology, actually turn out to be a disaster for it. On the other hand, sometimes an IT person deals with such horrific tech incidents which can make them cry. Let's check out pictures that can make any IT person cringe!

Erdogan, however, left before the lockdown. "We've had a great relationship and we will make it even better," Trump had said in the joint appearance with Erdogan. His Turkish counterpart, on the other hand, commented that his visit would "mark a historical turn of tide," and hailed "outstanding relations" between the nations. The bike rack runs alongside the North Fence Line of Washington, D.C.'s Pennsylvania Avenue – a street linking White House to the Capitol. —This is a developing story. Stay tuned for more.

  23. Star Wars Day it is today. Celebrate you will. No, that is not wrong English; it’s just how Yoda talks. The ‘Star Wars’ franchise has many beloved characters; however, none of them can give you the kind of inspiration Yoda can. He is a mentor and he is the wisest of them all. He might be old but he is also one of the toughest dudes in the galaxy. His wisdom has resonated with me on a personal level and there are many lessons we all can learn from the green master. 1. Yoda on size © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma Sure, there are many people who want to look bigger than they actually are; our health section has some crazy tips on how to achieve that. But a real fighter recognises that size does not matter. Yoda says that the size of the fighter is never the problem, but the size of the force (read ‘spirit’) within them. Yoda believes that we, as people, should always stand for what’s right and make as much difference as we can in the world. 2. Unlearn what you have learned © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma What he means is that we should change our attitude and perspective because there is always something fresh around the corner. If an attitude change can bring a positive difference, do it. Do not hesitate. You should leave your comfort zone and challenge the status quo for self-growth. Sometimes it is better to unlearn a few things before trying to learn new ones. 3. Luminous Beings Are We, Not This Crude Matter © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma “[M]y ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us, binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force flow around you. Here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, yes, even between the land and the ship.” This one is my personal favourite as I have it tattooed on my left arm and it resonated with me on so many different levels that I still apply it to my life, to this very day. While training Luke, Yoda tried to explain what the force is all about. He delivers this infamous line when Luke doubts his own abilities to control the force. He explains that the force has nothing to with our physical bodies. It is a form of spirit that is always around us and keeps us together. We should not be limited because of physical barriers and believe in positive energies to help us achieve what we might think is unachievable. 4. Do Or Do Not, There Is No Try © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma I think this quite self-explanatory but if you still need some extra wisdom, then pay attention. He means that you as a person must set your own goals, and always achieve them. You cannot be lazy and procrastinate to do something you’ve wanted to do for a long time. Do you want to go bungee jumping? Go do it. The harsh truth is that you cannot sit on your ass and expect things to come to you. You need to go out and get what you want, no matter how small or big. 5. Never Lose Yourself © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma You must not be afraid to lose something in your life. Even if it means it will hurt you in the end. When you have nothing to lose, life can be exciting and fruitful. Attachment can give you joy and great pain. Don’t take this literally that you don’t let yourself get close to someone. However, with great fear comes great suffering (Another Yoda quote!), and we can end up creating many hurtful situations for ourselves because of jealousy and greed. Learn to let go. 6. Bringing it © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma No matter what, always be prepared. Never allow any evil thoughts to dominate your mind. A Jedi is known for fighting for the helpless, for love and with love. The Sith fought with fear and only fear. If you are strong enough to defeat all of your fears, you can conquer anything. 7. Never Judge A Book By Its Cover Yoda: Help you I can. Yes, mmmm. Luke: I don’t think so. I’m looking for a great warrior. Yoda: Ohhh. Great warrior… Wars not make one great. He might be funny looking and he might be small, but he can hold his own. Yoda has fought many battles, yet he was modest enough to let Luke know that fighting is not always the answer. Star Wars is a special franchise and it will always be one of the closest things to my heart. I’ve been a superfan for 20 years and watch the entire series every month. I've collected toys, video games, comic books and even a showerhead. Did someone say #r2d2 shower head? #StarWars #TheForceAwakens #EmpireStrikesBack #ANewHope #ReturnOfTheJedi #ShotOnGalaxyS8 @starwars A post shared by Akshay Bhalla (Bhallanator) (@editorinchief) on Apr 30, 2017 at 12:36pm PDT We hope some of these quotes might inspire you to be a better person and make you believe in yourself. Until then, May The 4th Be With You.
