  1. File photo of Bono and Aung San Suu Kyi NEW YORK: U2 frontman Bono, a leading campaigner for Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi when she was under house arrest, has called on her to resign over the deadly campaign against Rohingya Muslims. The singer -- who championed Suu Kyi in the 2000 U2 song "Walk On," with fans encouraged to wear masks of the then opposition leader when the band played it live -- said he felt "nauseated" by images of the bloodshed and refugee crisis. "I have genuinely felt ill because I can't quite believe what the evidence all points to. But there is ethnic cleansing," he told Rolling Stone magazine in its latest issue. "It really is happening, and she has to step down because she knows it´s happening," Bono said. Pressed on his remarks in the interview conducted by Rolling Stone's founder, Jann Wenner, Bono said: "She should, at the very least, be speaking out more. And if people don´t listen, then resign." The United Nations and the United States have also described Myanmar's campaign against the stateless, mostly Muslim Rohingya people as ethnic cleansing. Doctors Without Borders said that at least 6,700 Rohingya were killed in the first month of sweeps on villages launched in response to rebel attacks. Another 655,000 Rohingya have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh. Suu Kyi, the winner of the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize, enjoyed wide support from celebrities as she spent most of two decades under house arrest on orders of Myanmar´s military junta. Myanmar's transition to democracy and Suu Kyi's elevation last year to de facto leader initially delighted human rights groups, but they have since been outraged by her reticence in addressing the anti-Rohingya campaign. Some experts believe Suu Kyi has made a calculated decision not to take the political risks of speaking out as the Rohingya are widely despised in Buddhist-majority Myanmar, and in any case she does not control the military. Bono said of Suu Kyi´s possible reasoning: "Maybe it´s that she doesn´t want to lose the country back to the military. But she already has, if the pictures are what we go by, anyway." Earlier this month Dublin, Bono´s hometown, revoked a city award given to Suu Kyi to protest her handling of the violence.
  2. Soldiers are seen on the armoured vehicle outside the parliament in Harare, Zimbabwe, November 16, 2017. ? Reuters HARARE: President Robert Mugabe is insisting he remains Zimbabwe?s only legitimate ruler and is refusing to quit after a military coup, but pressure is mounting on the 93-year-old former guerrilla to accept offers of a graceful exit, sources said on Thursday. A political source who spoke to senior allies holed up with Mugabe and his wife, Grace, in his lavish ?Blue Roof? Harare compound said Mugabe had no plans to resign voluntarily ahead of elections scheduled for next year. ?It?s a sort of stand-off, a stalemate,? the source said. ?They are insisting the president must finish his term.? The army?s takeover signaled the collapse in less than 36 hours of the security, intelligence and patronage networks that sustained Mugabe through 37 years in power and built him into the ?Grand Old Man? of African politics. A priest mediating between Mugabe and the generals, who seized power on Wednesday in what they called a targeted operation against ?criminals? in Mugabe?s entourage, has made little headway, a senior political source told Reuters. Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai called for Mugabe?s departure ?in the interest of the people?. In a statement read to reporters, Tsvangirai pointedly referred to him as ?Mr Robert Mugabe?, not President. The army appears to want Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980, to go quietly and allow a smooth and bloodless transition to Emmerson Mnangagwa, the vice president Mugabe sacked last week triggering the political crisis. The main goal of the generals is to prevent Mugabe from handing power to his wife Grace, 41 years his junior, who has built a following among the ruling party?s youth wing and appeared on the cusp of power after Mnangagwa was pushed out. The last of Africa?s state founders from the heyday of the struggle against European colonisation still in power, Mugabe is still seen by many Africans as a liberation hero. But he is reviled in the West as a despot whose disastrous handling of the economy and willingness to resort to violence to maintain power pauperised one of Africa?s most promising states. Once a regional bread-basket, Zimbabwe saw its economy collapse in the wake of the seizure of white-owned farms in the early 2000s, followed by runaway money-printing that catapulted inflation to 500 billion percent in 2008. Millions, from highly skilled bankers to semi-literate farmers, emigrated, mostly to neighbouring South Africa, where an estimated 3 million still live. After a brief revival under a 2009-13 power-sharing government, when Mugabe was forced to work with the opposition, the economy has once again cratered, with dollars scarce, inflation surging, imports running out and queues outside banks. Doors blown off A fighter, both literally and figuratively during a political career that included several assassination attempts, Mugabe now appears to have reached the end of the road. With the army camped on his front door and the police - once seen as a bastion of support - showing no signs of resistance, force is not an option. Similarly, he has no popular backing in Harare, where he is widely loathed, and his influence in the ruling ZANU-PF party is evaporating. ZANU-PF youth leader Kudzai Chipanga, a vocal Mugabe supporter, publicly apologised for opposing the army after being marched by soldiers into the state television headquarters to read out a statement, sources at the broadcaster said. He was then taken back to the army?s main KGVI (pronounced KG Six) barracks in Harare, where Finance Minister Ignatius Chombo is also being held, an army source said. Video footage obtained by Reuters from the houses of two key allies of Grace Mugabe - cabinet ministers Jonathan Moyo and Saviour Kasukuwere - indicated that the army was also prepared to use force if necessary. Moyo?s front door was blown open with explosives, scattering glass across the entrance hall, while the inside walls of Kasukuwere?s house were pocked with bullet holes. The pair managed to escape on the evening of the coup and make it to Mugabe?s compound, where they remain under effective house arrest, one political source said. Zimbabwean intelligence reports seen by Reuters suggest Mugabe?s exit was in the planning for more than a year. Mnangagwa, a former security chief and life-long Mugabe confidant known as ?The Crocodile?, is the key player. According to the files and political sources in Zimbabwe and South Africa, once Mugabe?s resignation is secured Mnangagwa would take over as president of an interim unity government that will seek to stabilise the imploding economy. Fuelling speculation that this plan might be rolling into action, 65-year-old Tsvangirai, who has been receiving cancer treatment in Britain and South Africa, returned to Harare late on Wednesday. ?Solid hands? Ex-finance minister Tendai Biti added to that speculation, telling Reuters he would be happy to work in a post-coup administration as long as Tsvangirai was also on board. ?If Morgan says he?s in, I?m in,? said Biti, who earned international respect during his time as finance minister in the 2009-13 government. ?The country needs a solid pair of hands so one might not have a choice.? South Africa said Mugabe had told President Jacob Zuma by telephone on Wednesday that he was confined to his home but was otherwise fine. The military said it was keeping him and his family, including Grace, safe. Despite admiration for Mugabe among older African leaders, there is little public affection for 52-year-old Grace, an ex-government typist who began an affair with Mugabe in the early 1990s while his first wife Sally was dying of kidney failure. Dubbed ?DisGrace? or ?Gucci Grace? on account of her reputed love of shopping, she enjoyed a meteoric rise through the ranks of ZANU-PF in the last two years, culminating in Mnangagwa?s removal. Zimbabweans, including the Mnangagwa camp and the military, interpreted the vice president?s ouster as a move to clear the way for her to succeed her husband. In contrast to the high political drama unfolding behind closed doors, the streets of the capital remained calm, with people going about their daily business, albeit under the watch of soldiers on armored vehicles at strategic locations.
  3. An ashtray with cigarette butts is pictured in Hinzenbach, Austria, February 5, 2012. REUTERS/Lisi Niesner/Files MIAMI: Smokers who are offered cash incentives are far more likely to give up cigarettes than those who are simply offered tips on how to quit, said a US study Monday. The approach could offer ways to cut the number of smokers, which has remained steady at about one-fifth of the US population in recent years, according to the report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Internal Medicine. The rate among the poor is even higher. Twenty-six percent of smokers in the US in 2015 were below the poverty line, compared to 14 percent of smokers at or above the poverty line, according to background information in the article. The randomized clinical trial included 352 people in Boston, Massachusetts. Participants were recruited from hospital waiting rooms. Those entering the study all smoked more than 10 cigarettes per day and wanted to quit. Most were African-American women. Some were given a brochure and a list of community resources available to help people quit smoking. Others received the same resource list, along with extra counselling sessions on how to quit from "patient navigators," and were also told they would get a cash payment if they managed to give up cigarettes. Participants were not told how much they would get paid for quitting when they entered the year-long study. Halfway through, those who quit were paid $250 and told they would get an additional $500 if they were not smoking at 12 months. Nearly 10 percent of the incentive group had quit by six months, compared to less than one percent of those offered a brochure. Those who had not quit by six months were given a chance to keep trying in exchange for a payment. "After 12 months, 12 percent of the intervention group quit smoking, while two percent of the control group had quit," said the study. Urine and saliva tests confirmed whether smokers had indeed quit or not. Lead author Karen Lasser, associate professor of medicine at Boston University School of Medicine, said the study shows a multi-faceted approach that employs incentives works best. "Most of the participants who quit smoking utilized patient navigation, but it's unclear whether navigation alone would achieve the rates of smoking cessation we observed," she said.

  6. Nikki Haley ? the US Ambassador to the United Nations ? delivers remarks at a security council meeting at UN headquarters during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York City, US, September 21, 2017. REUTERS/Stephanie Keith/Files WASHINGTON: Senior Trump administration officials said on Sunday that the United States was committed to remaining part of the Iran nuclear accord for now, despite President Donald Trump?s criticisms of the deal and his warnings that he might pull out. Nikki Haley ? the US ambassador to the United Nations ? said that Tehran is complying with the 2015 nuclear accord intended to increase Iran?s accountability in return for the lifting of some economic sanctions. ?I think right now, you?re going to see us stay in the deal,? Haley told NBC?s Meet the Press. In a speech on Friday, Trump laid out an aggressive approach regarding Iran and said he would not certify it is complying with the nuclear accord, despite a determination by the United Nations? nuclear watchdog that Tehran is meeting its terms. The Republican president threw the issue to the US Congress, which has 60 days to decide whether to reinstate US sanctions. He warned that if ?we are not able to reach a solution working with Congress and our allies, then the agreement will be terminated?. So far, none of the other signatories to the deal ? Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China, Iran, and the European Union (EU) ? have cited serious concerns, leaving the United States isolated. In her Meet the Press interview, Haley said the United States was not saying that Iran was in breach of the agreement, but she raised concerns about its activities that are not covered by the pact, including weapons sales and sponsorship of militant groups such as Hezbollah. Haley said that other countries were ?turning a blind eye? to these Iranian activities in order to ?protect? the nuclear agreement. She said the United States needed to weigh a ?proportionate? response to Tehran?s actions on the world stage. ?The goal at the end of the day is to hold Iran accountable,? Haley said in the interview, which mainly focused on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the nuclear deal is formally known. Haley and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson hammered away at the need to address what they see as shortcomings in the two-year-old international accord while simultaneously placing pressure to rein in Iranian activities outside the scope of that deal. A second pact? Tillerson, alluding to other signatory countries? opposition to reopening the Iran pact, raised the possibility of ?a second agreement? to run parallel to the existing one. Among the ?areas of concern,? he mentioned were its sunset provisions and Tehran?s ballistic missile program. Haley also said the reason the United States was looking closely at the Iran nuclear deal was due to escalating tensions over North Korea?s nuclear weapons development. ?What we?re saying now with Iran is don?t let it become the next North Korea.? On Friday, Trump also said he was authorizing the US Treasury to sanction Iran?s Revolutionary Guards, and on Sunday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said he was planning to move ahead. Mnuchin ? interviewed on Fox News? Sunday Morning Futures ? said he has spoken about Iran with his counterparts attending World Bank and International Monetary Fund meetings in recent days. He did not provide any details on possible sanctions. US Senator Susan Collins ? appearing on ABC?s This Week ? noted that Trump could have taken a more extreme step by withdrawing from the agreement. But in words of support for Trump, the moderate Republican lawmaker said, ?Instead, he put a spotlight on two troubling deficiencies in the agreement,? referring to a lack of limitations on Iran?s tests of ballistic missiles and a ?pathway to developing a nuclear weapon? down the road. While many US allies strongly criticized Trump?s decision not to recertify the Iran deal, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the move, saying the current terms of the Iran nuclear accord would allow it to have a nuclear stockpile within a decade. ?We cannot allow this rogue regime 30 times the size of North Korea?s economy to have a nuclear arsenal,? Netanyahu said on CBS? Face the Nation.
  7. Being a successful entrepreneur in this country can be a struggle most times but we can remain oblivious to hard hitting hardships and struggles knowing that struggling is a choice. Now you may ask me how the struggle is even real without actually struggling for what you want in life. I am not saying building a business doesn't take time and there are no measures of pain and sweat that don't go into spending eternal nights and days in sheer hard work but there is a process you can follow which doesn't have to break your back or give you grim days. Hustling is a tardy myth and you don't have to go overboard burning the midnight oil starting a successful business. I am here to say- start a business, follow a due process, watch it flourish and Netflix and chill later and while doing that, don't lose three things- intention, focus and hope. Don't struggle while setting something up, rather work intelligently. Here's how: Start With Building A Team © Thinkstock/Getty Images First off, hire people before you start a business. I am sure you have enough capital to invest in more people. There isn't a point doing something you don't know anything about, right? You'll just end up spending days on end perfecting one simple task. For instance, if you suck at building a website to promote your business, hire someone who knows it like the back of their hand. Don't waste your time teaching yourself something you don't want to learn. Instead, invest that time to strengthen things you love doing for your business. Get An Assistant © Thinkstock/Getty Images With hiring the right help, also hire an assistant who can make things easier for you. No, not things like fetching your morning coffee but sending out important communication or being an extra helping hand. The main reason you exhaust yourself setting a business up is because you do everything on your own. While that's fairly commendable, getting someone to help you out can make a world of a difference on your level of stress. Quit Working For Free! © Thinkstock/Getty Images The Joker's famous words, if you remember were, ‘if you're ever good at something, never do it for free'. Contextually he could be talking about something else but here, you should take it as literally as it can get. Quit doing favours for your bros just because of an association. If a friend demands or requests a work favour out of the business you are running, put a price to it. You have invested enough time in setting something up and if anyone should be more than encouraging and supportive, it should be that friend. Work Intelligently © Thinkstock/Getty Images Have you ever heard of the 80-20 rule in business? Yes, it's the foundation of economics and it's based on statistics but there is only good logic in this theory and I think every entrepreneur should abide by it and it's not supposed to be only understood by economists of the world. According to Wikipedia, the 80-20 theory states ‘The principle was named after an Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed that 80% of income in Italy was received by the 20% of the population in Italy. The assumption is that most of the results in any situation are determined by a small number of causes'. In lay man terms, the 80-20 theory is getting the maximum profit or gains out of your business (80% of your business) with just 20% of inputs by you. Now you may think it should be the other way round, that 80% of input should produce 20% of output. But this theory has proven to be very effective. Many of us do 80% of the work for getting 20% results. This kills our inhibitions as we spend all our time for that measly 20% of profit. We forget that overall happiness and satisfaction are much better variables to focus on and get roped into structuring our business model to limited profit and expansive expenditure of our own energy. If we work intelligently, we can definitely curb that. Having a few clients that give massive profits can be worked out if you structure your business that way. Make your clientele 20% and reap a profit of 80% from them and focus on reducing your stress and be happy doing what you love doing. Keep Fluctuating Your Prices © Thinkstock/Getty Images If you're running a business selling products, study the market carefully before fixing a price to your product. Prices fluctuate frequently and you can't keep sitting on one figure for the longest time. Keep a margin and reduce or increase the current price, often. Even if you don't want to follow the market, put your own logical price to your product from time to time, as your business grows. The question is, are you charging your worth? If you lose your clients because you have increased your charges it doesn't matter. The fact is, the people who want to work with you will be expected to make an investment, for they truly know your worth. Make Time For You © Thinkstock/Getty Images This is the most pivotal point of my discussion on this topic. No matter how hectic and demanding your start-up gets, always find time for yourself. Take those mandatory two days off a week and do what you love doing. Take a week off every once a while and travel to unwind. Even if you don't want to step out of your comfort zone, stay at home and re-wire your brain, unwind and jump back fresh as a daisy. I cannot stress on how important ‘me' time really is, especially when you're spending all your time setting something up that is difficult and can get overwhelming. Just remember, you are your big break and you need to believe that you are. All you have to do is, quit hustling in life, take it easy and sail smoothly through what you love doing (intelligently though) and you'll get there in not time.
  8. From the day we begin our education, one particular element is drilled into our heads- ‘Succeed at all costs'. Most of us keep chasing that elusive triumph and some fortunate ones even find it. But what happens when success does not necessarily give you the joy and happiness you expected? Do you continue that path or dare to break free and start afresh? “Follow your heart” sounds pretty easy to do when you hear it in a Disney movie (Mulan), but not many of us have the courage to actually fight against society's expectations and make our own roads. Such exceptional stories become a source of inspiration and motivation and here is one such incredible tale. Meet Rakshit Kejriwal, co-founder of DropKaffe and Edyoo. His resume boasts of glorious degrees and accolades which will put even the highest of glory-seekers to shame. Chartered Accountant, MBA in Finance and Strategy from Columbia Business School, working with illustrious companies including the hallowed Wall Street…seems enough to give one a lifetime of achievements and success right? Not for Kejriwal, who burned with the desire to find purpose. His tale depicts the ‘risk-taking' nature of a person, which is a prerequisite when embarking on a journey into the unknown. After all, starting afresh means putting aside your external fears of failure and move past the dreaded ‘what if' qualms. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Read Kejriwal's inspiring tale here in his own words, as he narrated his amazing journey on LinkedIn: “Right after graduation, my first job was with Citibank, it was easily the happiest day of my life, since I was all of 20 years, going to a multinational bank in Mumbai, India. The happiness didn't last for a long time when I made an insane number of photocopies for my boss, who never trusted anyone else with all-important task. After this, I had the opportunity to work for more than a decade with large and prestigious consulting companies and Wall Street Investment banks, in Dubai, and New York. I gained two very enviable degrees on the way, Chartered Accountant and an MBA from an Ivy League University. While there were no complaints with my career, I wasn't excited either. A desire to create something, even if it is small, was burning strongly. I am sure, all have faced this situation or are currently in this situation. I eventually quit my well-paying Wall Street job and moved to India to work on my startup idea. Most people quit their job and then figure out a way to start their company, but, it can be very nerve wracking as well. Have you ever made any decision like this? How was the experience like?” This rousing story clearly struck a chord with many like-minded entrepreneurs who enthusiastically responded by citing their own daring tales of taking a risky jump. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Harsh Vardhan Mahipal: “I was working with HSBC post my uni and I quit after two years to start on my own .... while the experience has been mixed but I still love what I do and that makes me a happy person :)” Pramod Ralkar: “I did it almost 20 yrs ago. At 34, I was an AVP with an MNC, already part of their exclusive Global Leadership pool (way back in 1991), and had had a 2 yr stint in the UK. But, the urge was not to get trapped in the golden cage. Not many thought THIS WAY in the nineties. And, in those days people became AVPs in their late 40s or early 50s. I looked like a fool to walk away from it all. Changed track at 37 hoping for financial Nirvana, but had a bumpy ride around (and because of) the Y2K. Coming from an MFG background, the IT Industry was such a culture shock. So, jumped out on a limb again at 39. This time for freelancing. Extended Beginner's luck in Consulting. Pocketed many clients in the Europe. Grew in size and seemingly joined another rat-race. Thankfully, a timely stock-take and took a sizable break to explore life goals. Back into Consulting, but at a slow pace, and a steady state... with perpetual excitement that I choose.” Prajeet Budhale: “A young team member was quitting the organization I worked for. I had a retention conversation. He told me that he was leaving to pursue his inner calling. It was a wake-up call. I had an inner calling but I refused to acknowledge it as it meant facing uncertainty and fears. Finally, I took a leap of faith. Seven years hence, with 120 clients, great team, trusted partnerships, and a strong balance sheet am a happy man. Lesson learned - the barriers within me were stronger than the barriers outside of me. I guess every entrepreneur has to win their inner battles to succeed...every day.” So there you go, if you were looking for tales to aid you into making the drastic change you always wanted, you could not have found a better dose of motivation than this. And don't forget to write your own story in the comment section, you never know you may inspire some other scared soul into breaking free.
  9. KARACHI: Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Abdul Rashid Godil has decided to "maintain distance" from politics and will not contest next elections owing to security concerns. According to sources, Godil has decided to quit politics after family pressure.

  10. US President Donald Trump speaks about the violence, injuries, and deaths at the 'Unite the Right' rally in Charlottesville as he talks to the media in Trump Tower in Manhattan, New York, US, August 15, 2017. REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque WASHINGTON/NEW YORK: President Donald Trump disbanded two high-profile business advisory councils on Wednesday after several chief executives quit in protest over his remarks blaming weekend violence in Virginia not only on white nationalists but also on anti-racism activists who opposed them. A parade of prominent Republicans and US ally Britain also rebuked Trump, leaving him increasingly isolated after his comments on Tuesday about the bloodshed in the college town of Charlottesville further enveloped his seven-month-old presidency in controversy. The mayor of Phoenix asked Trump to delay a rally planned for next Tuesday, an appeal the president appeared to reject. A memorial service was held on Wednesday in Charlottesville for 32-year-old Heather Heyer, killed when a car ploughed into anti-racism protesters. A 20-year-old Ohio man said to have harboured Nazi sympathies has been charged with murder. Trump, a real estate magnate who had never before held public office, was elected president in November touting his experience in the business world and ability to strike deals. But some of the Republican president's actions and words have alienated many corporate leaders. Trump said he would dissolve the American Manufacturing Council and the Strategic and Policy Forum after eight executives including Campbell Soup Co CEO (CPB.N) Denise Morrison and 3M Co CEO (MMM.N) Inge Thulin quit the panels. Both of the councils were moving to disband on their own when Trump made his announcement on Twitter. "Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both," he wrote. The Strategic and Policy Forum was headed by Blackstone Group (BX.N) CEO Stephen Schwarzman, a close ally of Trump in the business world. Schwarzman organized a call on Wednesday for member executives to voice concerns after Trump's comments, and an overwhelming majority backed disbanding the council, two sources said. Schwarzman then called Trump to tell him about the decision to disband. "Racism and murder are unequivocally reprehensible and not morally equivalent to anything else that happened in Charlottesville," Morrison said. JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) CEO Jamie Dimon, a member of one of the panels, said in a statement that "fanning divisiveness is not the answer." Dow Chemical Co (DOW.N) Chief Executive Andrew Liveris, who headed the manufacturing council, said he told the White House on Wednesday that "in the current environment it was no longer possible to conduct productive discussions." The Strategic and Policy Forum was intended to advise Trump on how government policy impacts economic growth, job creation and productivity. The manufacturing council was designed to promote US job growth. Along with the snubs from business leaders, Trump was rebuked by a string of Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Ohio Governor John Kasich, Senator Lindsey Graham and former US presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. The president needs the support of fellow Republicans as he tries to push his policy agenda, including tax cuts, through a Congress that is controlled by the Republicans. Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, a Democrat, said Trump would "enflame emotions and further divide our nation" if he used next week's rally to pardon Joe Arpaio, a former Arizona sheriff who was found guilty last month of criminal contempt of court. Arpaio gained a national profile due to his harsh treatment of inmates and outspoken opposition to illegal immigration. Shortly after Stanton's statement, Trump urged supporters on Twitter to attend the rally. Few public figures have voiced support for Trump over his response to the violence. Vice President Mike Pence, who is cutting short a trip to Latin America, told reporters in Chile that "I stand with the president and I stand by those words." Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke praised Trump's "honesty and courage." Richard Spencer, head of a white nationalist group, lauded the president for "speaking the truth." US stocks ended slightly firmer but off the day's highs as investors worried that the backlash to Trump's remarks could stunt his ability to deliver on pro-business promises. Possible resignations A former senior Trump administration official raised the prospect that some White House officials could quit because of Trump's comments. The demise of the councils raised Wall Street speculation that senior administration figures such as White House economic adviser Gary Cohn or US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin might step down to avoid the tarnish of being associated with Trump. Cohn, Mnuchin and Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao stood awkwardly by Trump during his remarks at Trump Tower on Tuesday. "He's worried about his reputation being trashed, which is much more valuable to him than anything else," the former administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said of Cohn. McConnell, who last week drew Trump's ire over the Senate's failure to pass health care legislation, issued a statement saying "messages of hate and bigotry" from white supremacists, should not be welcome in the United States. McConnell's statement did not mention Trump by name. The Republican Jewish Coalition, a group whose board includes big party donors including casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, called on Trump to "provide greater moral clarity in rejecting racism, bigotry and antisemitism." There is "simply no place" in American public discourse for "hate and violence" displayed in Charlottesville, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said before meeting with Canada's foreign minister. 'Blame on both sides' Trump's remarks on Tuesday were a more vehement reprisal of his initial response to the bloodshed. At a heated news conference in New York, he said, "there is blame on both sides" of the violence, and that there were "very fine people" on both sides. In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May offered a rare rebuke of Trump from so close a US ally. "I see no equivalence between those who propound fascist views and those who oppose them and I think it is important for all those in positions of responsibility to condemn far-right views wherever we hear them," May told reporters. Politicians in Germany, which has tough laws against hate speech and any symbols linked to the Nazis who murdered six million Jews in the Holocaust, expressed shock at the images of people in Charlottesville carrying swastikas and chanting anti-Jewish slurs. The country's justice minister accused Trump of trivializing anti-Semitism and racism. Senior American military officers usually stay clear of politics, but two more of the US military's top officers weighed in on Wednesday, without explicitly mentioning Trump. US Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley wrote on Twitter, "The Army doesn't tolerate racism, extremism, or hatred in our ranks. It's against our Values and everything we've stood for since 1775." Air Force Chief of Staff General Dave Goldfein? said on Twitter that "I stand with my fellow service chiefs in saying we're always stronger together." Their comments followed similar ones from the top officers of the Navy and Marine Corps.
  11. Iran?s President Hassan Rouhani TEHRAN: Iran?s President Hassan Rouhani warned on Tuesday that Iran could abandon its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers within hours if the United States keeps on imposing new sanctions. In a speech to parliament, he also hit out at US counterpart Donald Trump saying that he had shown the world that Washington was "not a good partner". Rouhani´s comments come with the nuclear deal under mounting pressure after Tehran carried out missile tests and strikes, and Washington imposed new sanctions -- with each accusing the other of violating the spirit of the agreement. Rouhani warned that Iran was ready to walk out of the 2015 deal, which saw the lifting of most international sanctions in return for curbs on its nuclear programme, if Washington persisted. "Those who try to return to the language of threats and sanctions are prisoners of their past delusions," he said in the televised address. "If they want to go back to that experience, definitely in a short time -- not weeks or months, but in the scale of hours and days -- we will return to our previous situation very much more stronger." He said Iran did prefer to stick with the nuclear deal, which he called "a model of victory for peace and diplomacy over war and unilateralism" but that this was not the "only option". Rouhani said Trump had shown he was an unreliable partner not just for Iran but for US allies. "In recent months, the world has witnessed that the US, in addition to its constant and repetitive breaking of its promises in the JCPOA (nuclear deal), has ignored several other global agreements and shown its allies that the US is neither a good partner nor a reliable negotiating party," he said. He highlighted Trump´s decisions to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement and international trade deals. Iran´s parliament on Sunday approved more than half a billion dollars in funding for the country´s missile programme and foreign operations of the elite Revolutionary Guards in response to the new US sanctions. ´Wanted to nominate women´ Rouhani was addressing lawmakers as deliberations start over his new ministerial line-up, which must be approved by lawmakers in the coming days. The president, who started his second term a fortnight ago, has faced criticism from reformists over his elderly and all-male cabinet. "I wanted to nominate three women ministers but it did not happen," he said, without explaining why. "All ministers must use women in high-ranking positions... and especially female advisers and deputies," he added. Rouhani, a 68-year-old moderate cleric, won a resounding re-election victory in May in large part due to the backing of reformists who supported his message of greater civil liberties and equality. Many felt let down by the lack of women ministers, saying he had bowed to pressure from the conservative religious establishment, although he did appoint two female vice presidents and a senior aide -- positions which do not require parliamentary approval. He defended his cabinet selections on Tuesday, and pointed to his choice for a new telecoms minister, 35-year-old Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, as "our first experience in choosing from the youth, someone who has grown up after the revolution".

  13. Washington: White House press secretary Sean Spicer and a member of President Donald Trump´s legal team resigned Friday in a one-two punch to a reeling administration, as pressure mounts from a broadening investigation into the Trump campaign´s ties to Russia. Spicer resigned in opposition to Trump´s naming of Anthony Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier and longtime supporter of the billionaire investor-turned-president, as the new White House communications director, a White House official told AFP. Mark Corallo, who coordinated the Trump legal team´s public response to the crisis over a probe into possible campaign collusion with Moscow, also stepped down, according to an email he sent to AFP. Spicer´s press briefings - often combative affairs with White House reporters - became increasingly infrequent in recent months, with deputy spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders stepping in to address journalists, often in off-camera briefings. Sanders however was due to go in front of the cameras later Friday. Spicer´s departure dramatically escalates the tensions within the administration over the direction the investigation is taking, and how the White House is responding. No reason was given for Corallo´s departure, and Spicer so far has remained publicly silent. But the moves come after Trump waded into potentially perilous legal territory by warning investigators not to look into his family finances. In an expansive interview with The New York Times earlier this week, Trump appeared to make that a red line for special counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller is examining whether Trump or his aides colluded with Russia´s apparent efforts to help tilt the 2016 presidential election in Trump´s favor. Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, but has struggled to explain why his eldest son and key aides met Russian operatives who promised dirt on Hillary Clinton. ´Fundamental line´ With the investigation apparently extending to financial transactions, US media reported that Trump allies were looking into issuing presidential pardons and for ways to discredit Mueller´s investigation. Trump himself has suggested that Mueller - a widely respected former FBI director - may have a conflict of interest. "There is NO basis to question the integrity of Mueller or those serving with him in the special counsel´s office," said former attorney general Eric Holder. "Trump cannot define or constrain Mueller investigation. If he tries to do so this creates issues of constitutional and criminal dimension." The White House has pointedly refused to rule out the possibility that Trump would fire Mueller - an act that would prompt a political firestorm and perhaps a constitutional crisis. Trump has already fired his FBI director James Comey over the Russia investigation and lashed out at his own attorney general Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the probe. Adam Schiff, the leading Democrat on a House of Representatives intelligence committee that is separately investigating Russian actions around the time of the election, also warned that Trump was wandering into dangerous territory. "There is no doubt that Mueller has the authority to investigate anything that arises from his investigation into the Trump campaign´s ties to Russia, including financial links," Schiff said. The top Democrat on the Senate´s intelligence committee, Mark Warner, warned that pardoning anybody who may have been involved "would be crossing a fundamental line."
  14. FILE PHOTO: French President Emmanuel Macron and Chief of the Defence Staff French Army General Pierre de Villiers arrive in a command car for the traditional Bastille Day military parade on the Champs-Elysees in Paris, France, July 14, 2017 - Reuters PARIS: General Francois Lecointre has been appointed as the new head of the French army, a military source said on Wednesday. Lecointre, a member of Prime Minister Edouard Philippe's staff who served in the army in Bosnia, replaces General Pierre de Villiers, who resigned abruptly on Wednesday after a clash with President Emmanuel Macron over defence budget cuts. In a statement, 60 year-old Pierre de Villiers said he had tried to maintain a French defense force with the ability to do an increasingly difficult job within the financial constraints imposed on it, but was no longer able to sustain that. "In the current circumstances I see myself as no longer able to guarantee the robust defense force I believe is necessary to guarantee the protection of France and the French people, today and tomorrow, and to sustain the aims of our country," he said. Macron had accepted his resignation, de Villiers added. A fierce row broke out last week between the two men just two months after Macron was elected, and just as France prepared for the military pomp of a July 14 Bastille Day parade where Macron's U.S. counterpart Donald Trump was the guest of honor. De Villiers, appearing before a closed-door hearing of parliamentarians - had used strong language to protest at the 850 million euro ($979.46 million) defense budget cut Macron was making as part of his efforts to rein in state spending. "I won't let myself be fucked like that," he said according to two parliamentary sources. "I may be stupid, but I know when I am being had." Macron had gone public with his rebuke. "I have made commitments, I am your boss," he said in a speech to dozens of top army officers and their families.
  15. Floyd Mayweather has vowed to quit boxing once and for all after he emerges from retirement for next month's cross-combat showdown with Conor McGregor. The 40-year-old former welterweight king, who retired with a perfect 49-0 record in 2015, said Tuesday there was no chance of him fighting again after he climbs into the ring with mixed martial arts star McGregor. The two men are to face each other at Las Vegas's T-Mobile Arena on August 26 in what could become the richest bout in boxing history. Mayweather, who has already made an estimated $700 million during his two-decade career, is set for another eye-watering payday against brash UFC star McGregor. But irrespective of the result next month, Mayweather says he has already decided it will be his last fight. "I'm not the same fighter I was 21 years ago. I'm not the same fighter I was 10 years ago. I'm not even the same fighter I was two years ago," Mayweather told reporters at the Staples Center. Mayweather said he had discussed his plans to quit for good at a meeting with advisor Al Haymon earlier Tuesday. "I spoke to Al and told him. Today we had a meeting," Mayweather said. "I can't push my body, it's gruelling. Training camp is gruelling. I can't do it any more. Training camp is rough. It has to be my last one. "After taking a couple of years off I was okay. But then we ended up somehow making this fight happen. "Now I really know that this is it. Deep in my heart I know this is it." 'Tough competitor' The build-up to Tuesday's event saw Mayweather face headlines that he has filed for an extension to pay his 2015 tax bill. However he brushed off questions about his finances when asked. "We ain't trippin' on that," he responded. For boxing purists, Mayweather risks blemishing an otherwise perfect record with a tawdry final episode that has been disparaged as a cynical circus-like stunt. Mayweather however waved away suggestions that if he was to win, and retire with a 50-0 record, there would be an asterisk against his last fight. "The last time I checked he's still a professional fighter," Mayweather said of his lightly-regarded opponent. "He's a stand-up fighter. He never took a loss fighting straight up. I can't overlook that, because one shot can end your whole career. He's a tough competitor but it is what it is." Mayweather forged his 49-0 record on the back of phenomenal speed and defensive reflexes, often being criticised for his unwillingness to go to toe-to-toe with opponents. Another boxing masterclass could well be in store for McGregor, but Mayweather is unfazed by the possibility that the Irish brawler may deploy mixed martial arts tactics if he struggles to lay a glove on the American. "That's the referee's job," Mayweather said. "My job is to go out there and be a boxer, be a fighter. I'm pretty sure the referee's going to be fair and fun. "I'll leave all that up to the referee. My job is to go out there and fight against the guy that's across from me. "The fans demanded the fight. McGregor wanted this fight, I wanted this fight. August 26, it's going to be blood sweat and tears from the opening bell."
  16. No matter which profession, or age or salary bracket we are in, once in a while we all get these thoughts about quitting our jobs. While some are not content with the money or the nature of their job, others start feeling that this is not what they are meant for and that their passion lies elsewhere. But what if our decision of following our dreams fails to work in our favour? What if it turns out to be an irreversible mistake that later fills us with remorse? We are not trying to scare you, we are just penning down the thoughts and questions that pop up in everybody’s minds, when they are planning to switch their jobs. © YouTube/Pratyush Chaubey Similar thoughts crossed this guy’s mind too as he transitioned from being an Engineer with TCS to a Stand-Up comedian and the way he regrets his decision is hilarious and every bit funny. Pratyush Chaubey didn’t just voice his opinion, he wittily (with a tinge of humour) conveyed the thoughts that all of us have either during or after we have changed our profession. “Job Nahi Chodni Chahiye Thi”, this hard hitting title is reason enough for anyone to watch what this guy has to say, we did too and trust us you won’t regret watching the video. Whenever we think of doing something that’s against the conventional standards, we often get pulled down by thoughts and people. But, at the same time, we also fantasize about how awesome the other world is going to be, since we learnt in our growing years that ‘grass on the other side is greener.’ Hell no! This guy’s hilarious explanation about the pros and cons of leaving his job and running after his dreams is just the thing you need to see.
  17. Mark Zuckerberg has been on a roll these days. The most famous Harvard dropout finally got his Harvard degree! © Reuters The day of his ceremony, just before he was scheduled to deliver Harvard University’s commencement speech, someone hacked his alma mater’s student newspaper website and elaborately trolled the Facebook CEO. But, luckily, that was fixed before he walked on the stage. But, his technical difficulties for the day weren’t over. His commencement speech was obviously being livestreamed on Facebook, but for some reason the captions were, let’s just say, not up to the mark. Facebook’s auto-caption function is… not great pic.twitter.com/U23TkkCuYG — Mike Murphy (@mcwm) May 25, 2017 Okay, maybe it was just one goof-up. Nope, there’s more. © Facebook Yes, everyone needs a sense of purposos © Facebook JK Rauling © Facebook Totoday Ok, so maybe Facebook wasn’t completely at fault since it was Harvard University’s team that did the captioning. But, it’s still hilarious to see Facebook fail Mark Zuckerberg in the most hilarious way. And, if you haven’t already, you can watch the whole hilarious speech here.
  18. WASHINGTON: Brad Pitt has opened up for the first time about his divorce from Angelina Jolie, admitting to heavy drinking and pot smoking and a lifetime of cutting himself off emotionally from others. The 53-year-old actor told GQ Style in an extensive interview released on Wednesday that he had quit drinking, was undergoing therapy, and that he and Jolie were committed to resolving matters amicably and privately. "I just started therapy," the "Moneyball" star said in the interview for the summer issue of GQ Style. "I love it. I love it. I went through two therapists to get to the right one." Jolie's sudden announcement in September 2016 that she was filing for divorce sent shockwaves through the celebrity world. The couple known as Brangelina, who married in 2014 and have six children, embarked on a bitter child custody dispute and Pitt was investigated for possible child abuse after losing his temper in front of some of the children. The actor was cleared of the allegations and in January the pair agreed to use a private judge in their divorce case. Pitt said the split with Jolie, 41, had been a "huge generator for change." "I can't remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn't boozing or had a spliff, or something... "I'm really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know — things I wasn't dealing with. I was boozing too much," he said. Pitt said he loved wine, adding "truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good." He said he has quit drinking, replacing alcohol with cranberry juice and fizzy water. Regarding the divorce, Pitt said he and Jolie had decided to abandon the path of "vitriolic hatred" and work together to sort out their issues. Pitt said he was finding solace in working creatively with his hands. "I'm making everything. I'm working with clay, plaster, rebar, wood." As for the movie business, "I don't really think of myself much as an actor anymore. It takes up so little of my year and my focus. Film feels like a cheap pass for me, as a way to get at those hard feelings. It doesn't work anymore, especially being a dad." Pitt's latest movie "War Machine," a satirical look at the US war in Afghanistan, is due for release on May 26.
  19. MOSCOW: Several hundred Russians lined up in central Moscow on Saturday under the gaze of riot police to hand over handwritten appeals for President Vladimir Putin to quit, as similar protests took place in other cities. Putin, who has dominated Russian politics for 17 years, has not said whether he will run in presidential elections in March 2018. But the 64-year-old politician, who enjoys high popularity ratings, is widely expected to do so. Saturday's protest in the capital – called "We're sick of him" – was organised by the Open Russia movement founded by Kremlin critic Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Once Russia's richest man, he was freed by Putin in 2013 after spending a decade in jail for fraud, a charge Khodorkovsky said was politically-motivated. One of the hundreds shepherded into a queue behind metal barriers by police before handing over their petitions one-by-one, Anna, a 16-year-old Moscow schoolgirl, said she hoped Putin would get the message and not run again. "Nothing positive has happened in our country on his watch and I have the sense that things are getting worse, and that the main problem is the fact that those in power are the same," she told Reuters. Her preference for president was opposition politician Alexei Navalny, who spent 15 days in jail last month after helping organise the biggest anti-government protests since 2012, which ended with over 1,000 arrests. Saturday's event, held in bright sunshine, was more modest, though authorities were taking no chances. A Reuters reporter counted at least 30 police buses and coaches in the area, packed with hundreds of riot police. Videos posted by Russian media showed police in riot gear detaining protesters in St Petersburg, where activists reported over 100 arrests. There was no official confirmation of the arrests. STEPPING UP PRESSURE Police said 250 people had shown up in Moscow, the Interfax news agency reported, while Maria Baronova, an Open Russia activist, said at least 500 people had handed over a petition. Irina Glushkova, 64, standing in the same line as the schoolgirl, said she and many others simply didn't agree with how Putin governed. "I'm sick of the situation," she said. "I'm the same age as Putin and I don't think I'm less intelligent than him, but my opinion is not taken into account at all." Authorities have stepped up pressure on Open Russia in recent days. The General Prosecutor's Office ruled on Wednesday that the activity of Open Russia's British arm was "undesirable" and accused it and other organisations of trying to discredit the election. On Thursday, police searched the Moscow offices of Open Russia's Russian branch. Activists said they confiscated 100,000 blank appeal forms that the foundation had hoped to hand out to people encouraging them to call for Putin to quit. On Friday, REN TV, a Russian TV channel, broadcast a documentary about Open Russia activists, some of whom it accused of having criminal records, of being drug addicts, and of cultivating close links with the US government. Activists dismissed the program as a cheap stunt designed to discredit them, with at least one noting that REN TV had somehow obtained video footage stored on his mobile phone.
  20. SARGODHA: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif said that he will quit politics if it is proven that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairperson Imran Khan was offered Rs10 billion to stay mum on Panama case. “I will also apologise to the nation if these allegations are proven,” he remarked. However, if the decision comes against Imran Khan, then the PTI leader will be crowned as ‘IG of Liars’. Last week, Imran Khan had alleged that he was offered Rs10 billion to stay quiet on the Panama case. Refusing to disclose the name of the person who made the offer, Imran had said that the person was a close aide of Shehbaz Sharif. This led to a political turmoil and heated exchange of words between Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz and PTI leaders. The federal government also decided to sue Imran Khan over his allegations, sources had informed Geo News, adding that the decision was taken in a high-level consultative meeting, held to review the Supreme Court’s decision on Panama Leaks case. Reacting to this, Imran Khan had remarked that the people who want to know the name of the person, who made the offer, can take him to court. He said that he’s not revealing the name of the one who tried to bribe him, only out of consideration that the person would be forced to go out of business due to vengeful activities. One the occasion, CM Punjab also announced Rs5 billion funds for Educational Endowment Fund and said that Metro Bus Project will also be inaugurated in Sargodha.

  22. Don't quit When things go wrong as they sometimes will; When the road you're trudging seems all uphill; When the funds are low, and the debts are high And you want to smile, but have to sigh; When care is pressing you down a bit Rest if you must, but do not quit. Success is failure turned inside out; The silver tint of the clouds of doubt; And you can never tell how close you are It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.
