  1. Indian filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj has decided to reschedule his next film starring Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone till the Hindi Medium actor returns from treatment abroad. ?Irrfan is a warrior and we know he will conquer this battle. Therefore Deepika Padukone, Prernaa, Kriarj Entertainment and I have decided to reschedule our film and start with renewed energy and celebration when our warrior returns as a winner," Vishal tweeted. Irrfan revealed a few days back that he has been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour and will be travelling abroad for treatment. Irrfan Khan reveals he's suffering from neuroendocrine tumour Bollywood actor says he will be flying abroad for treatment "The unexpected makes us grow, which is what the past few days have been about. Learning that I have been diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour as of now has admittedly been difficult, but the love and strength of those around me and that I found within me has brought me to a place of hope," the actor said on Twitter. "The journey of this is taking me out of the country, and I request everyone to continue sending their wishes. As for the rumours that were floated, neuro is not always about the brain and Googling is the easiest way to do research. To those who waited for my words, I hope to be back with more stories to tell," the 51-year-old added.
  2. A species of spotted marsupial devastated by foxes has been returned to the wild in mainland Australia for the first time in almost 50 years in a rare and landmark conservation success story. Photo: WWF/Australia SYDNEY: A species of spotted marsupial devastated by foxes has been returned to the wild in mainland Australia for the first time in almost 50 years in a rare and landmark conservation success story. The eastern quoll -- a furry carnivore about the size of a domestic cat -- disappeared from the mainland in the 1960s but clung on in the island state of Tasmania. They have now been re-introduced to their native environment on the country´s east coast after a 15-year project to bring feral predators in one area under control. Twenty of the cute critters were released into the Booderee National Park, south of Sydney, this week. "This is the first time in Australia that a carnivore extinct on the mainland has been re-introduced to the wild," WWF-Australia´s head of living ecosystems Darren Grover said Thursday. "Most of the carnivores lost from the mainland are gone forever, it´s not possible to bring them back, so this is a rare opportunity. "For thousands of years eastern quolls played a part in the ecosystem as primarily insect-eaters. It will be fascinating to see what happens when they return to that role at Booderee." Australian National University researcher Natasha Robinson said the quolls, which tend to live alone, had been fitted with GPS collars so their progress could be closely monitored. "Over the next three months the eastern quolls will be intensively monitored via GPS tracking and then regularly monitored over three years," she said. "Foxes, both outside and entering the park will also be monitored and managed with the aim of ensuring fox incursion to the park is very limited. "This will help us understand how resilient the eastern quolls can be to very low densities of feral predators in the landscape." Large numbers of eastern quolls were killed in the early 1900s by a mysterious epidemic, and their population was then devastated as foxes spread across south-eastern Australia. They were last regularly seen in the 1960s in the Sydney region.
  3. SHARJAH: Luke Ronchi and Alex Hales powered Multan Sultans to post a 186-run target against Islamabad United on Tuesday. Maintaining his fiery form, Ronchi cemented solid basis for the United to reach a high-scoring total as he scored his third half-century in the tournament. The Kiwi batsman was well assisted by Alex Hales and middle-order batsmen, Asif Ali and Hussain Talat. Umar Gul took two and Imran Tahir took one wicket for United. Second Innings Spinner Samit Patel gave an ideal start to United as he bowled a double-wicket over by striking down Kumar Sangakkara and Saif Badar. All-rounder Faheem Ashraf and Amad Butt ended innings of Ahmed Shehzad and Sohaib Maqsood respectively, while Shadab Khan dismissed Sultans' skipper Malik. First Innings Multan Sultans won the toss and elected to field in their match against Islamabad United tonight. A direct hit by Shoaib Malik ended opener United's opener JP Duminy's (6) time on the crease. The early setback was diluted by Luke Ronchi as he played a knock of 58 runs off 36 balls, including six boundaries and three sixes on the strike rate of 161.11. The Kiwi batsman was dismissed by legspinner Imran Tahir as he tried to slog sweep. Alex Hales gave an easy catch to Sohaib Maqsood at the cover area when the team score was on 126. geo_embedgallery United's emerging top-order batsman Hussain Talat (36) returned to the pavilion as Kieron Pollard took his catch. A blitz of four boundaries and one six came to an end. Skipper Malik confirmed that his team has made two changes in their squad as Junaid Khan and Hardus Viljoen were rested; Ross Whiteley and Umar Gul are in. Meanwhile, United has also made two changes as Alex Hales and Imad Butt came in for the respective places of Steven Finn and Zafar Gohar Islamabad XI: AD Hales, L Ronchi, JP Duminy, Hussain Talat, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Misbah-ul-Haq, SR Patel, Shadab Khan, Amad Butt, Mohammad Sami. Multan XI: KC Sangakkara, Ahmed Shehzad, Sohaib Maqsood, Shoaib Malik, KA Pollard, Saif Badar, RA Whiteley, Sohail Tanvir, Imran Tahir, Mohammad Irfan, Umar Gul. Islamabad are in red-hot form, with five wins in seven matches so far. Their victory streak began from a dramatic win against Lahore Qalandars in Super Over thriller, after which the Reds defeated Karachi Kings, Lahore (again) and Peshawar Zalmi to secure 10 points and joint-top position with Quetta Gladiators on the points table. Misbah's side has been further boosted by the inclusion of England batsmen Alex Hales and Sam Billings, who joined the squad in UAE following the end of the series in New Zealand. Multan, however, look shaky at fourth spot. After a flying start to their PSL campaign, the team has been languishing and needs to win tonight to consolidate their place in the top four.
  4. Jonny Bairstow's 138 and Joe Root's 102 went in vain as Ross Taylor overshadowed his English counterparts with a scintillating knock of 181 runs to help New Zealand chase an imposing total of 335 runs and secure a thrilling five-wicket win over England in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) at Dunedin. The marauding right-hander overcame England's competitive bowling attack and his thigh injury, to help the Kiwis level the five-match ODI series 2-2. The 33-year-old took the opposition bowlers to the cleaners, smashing 17 fours and six sixes in his blistering 147-ball innings. © Reuters Adjudged the Man of the Match, Taylor drew plaudits for his batting masterclass from the cricket bigwigs and fans alike. But, there was one comment that stood out from the rest. And, we weren't surprised, it came from none other than social media king Virender Sehwag. Wah Darji ji , that was special. Brilliant innings, Master ji @RossLTaylor — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) March 7, 2018 Lauding the New Zealand batsman for his match-winning knock, Sehwag didn't shy away from bringing back his old 'Darji' jibe to poke fun at Taylor. Taking to Twitter, Sehwag wrote: "Wah Darji ji , that was special. Brilliant innings, Master ji @RossLTaylor". The tweet has since gone viral on the micro-blogging website, garnering over 17k likes and 1.3k retweets. But, this isn't the first time when Sehwag has trolled Taylor by likening him to a tailor. Well played @RossLTaylor Darji ji . Great effort after handling the pressure of Diwali orders .#indvsnz — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 22, 2017 Last year, during New Zealand's tour of India, Sehwag praised Taylor in a similar fashion. "Well played @RossLTaylor Darji ji . Great effort after handling the pressure of Diwali orders. #indvsnz". But, the banter didn't just end there. @virendersehwag #Rajkot mein match k baad, #darji (Tailor) Ki dukaan band. Agli silai #Trivandrum mein hogi... Zaroor Aana. #India #IndvNZ A post shared by Ross Taylor (@rossltaylor3) on Nov 5, 2017 at 2:30am PST In a befitting reply to Viru, Taylor came up with his own plan to troll the former Indian cricketer. The New Zealand cricketer shared a photo of himself - sitting in front of a tailor shop in Rajkot - with a caption: "@virendersehwag #Rajkot mein match k baad, #darji (Tailor) Ki dukaan band. Agli silai #Trivandrum mein hogi. Zaroor Aana. #India #IndvNZ". Apart from Sehwag, other popular stars also wished Taylor for his magnificent innings but they clearly couldn't match the pun and wit of the 'Nawab of Najafgarh'. @RossLTaylor oh my word. One of the best. Hell of a knock and a tremendous win. Get the other eye checked mate just in case!!! Congratulations. — Stephen Fleming (@SPFleming7) March 7, 2018 Congrats @RossLTaylor- next level mate! https://t.co/onxj1CeynF — Brendon McCullum (@Bazmccullum) March 7, 2018 Have some of that. Stunning Innings. Well batted Arjuna @RossLTaylor#NZvENG — Scott Styris (@scottbstyris) March 7, 2018 Great to see @RossLTaylor is such red hot form, mighty innings today 181* off just 147 balls. #NZvENG#ODIseries — Tom Moody (@TomMoodyCricket) March 7, 2018 Wow.. One of the great knocks @RossLTaylorð¥#NZvEng — Beauden Barrett (@beaudenbarrett) March 7, 2018 Take a bow Ross Taylor — Carlos Brathwaite (@TridentSportsX) March 7, 2018 If there are tears in heaven right now, they're coming from Martin Crowe watching this innings from his protege Ross Taylor. One of the greats. #Kiwigrit#allclass — Marc Hinton (@marchintonffx) March 7, 2018 Did Ross Taylor just smash a six and then grab his crotch Michael Jackson styles? That was a great moment in Nz cricket history. #Blackcaps — Guy Williams (@guywilliamsguy) March 7, 2018
  5. Nikolas Cruz, facing 17 charges of premeditated murder in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, appears in court for a status hearing before Broward Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, US, Feb 19, 2018. Photo: Reuters FORT LAUDERDALE: A former student accused of last week?s deadly shooting at a Florida high school returned to court for a hearing on Monday in a case that has galvanised advocates of stricter gun control, including many of the rampage survivors. Nikolas Cruz, his head bowed, hands shackled at his waist and wearing a red, jail-issued jumpsuit, showed no emotion during the procedural session in Fort Lauderdale. The hearing ended with Broward Circuit Court Judge Elizabeth Scherer ruling that a defence motion filed last week remain sealed from public view. The content of the motion, sealed by another judge, was not described in the hearing. In a second hearing, Broward Circuit Court Judge Charles Greene ordered the release of parts of a mental health assessment of Cruz by the Florida Department of Children and Families in November 2016. The report has already been leaked to South Florida?s Sun Sentinel newspaper. 17 killed in Florida school shooting; suspect in custody Live television showed dozens of students running and walking away from the school Cruz, who did not attend the second hearing, is facing 17 counts of premeditated murder after the attack on Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, near Fort Lauderdale. It is the deadliest shooting ever at a US high school. The suspect, whose mother died in November, was investigated by authorities after videos surfaced on the social media platform Snapchat showing him cutting himself, the assessment by the Department of Children and Families said. ?Cruz has fresh cuts on both his arms. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun. It is unknown what he is buying the gun for,? the released report said. In a statement, department secretary Mike Carroll said the records showed Cruz was getting mental health services before, during and after the assessment. Cruz was living with his mother and attending school when it concluded, he said. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has acknowledged it failed to act on a tip called in last month warning that Cruz possessed a gun and the desire to kill. Trump turns on FBI over school shooting after criticism from survivors 'They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign' Greene agreed to the request by Cruz?s team of public defenders to release the assessment. But he stopped short of allowing the release of details of Cruz?s mental health history and child abuse records. Student survivors gathered with teachers and gun safety advocates to plan a visit to the state capital of Tallahassee on Wednesday. They will demand state lawmakers enact a ban on the sale of assault weapons in Florida. The White House said on Monday that President Donald Trump supports efforts to improve federal background checks for gun purchases. Trump angered some students by suggesting in a tweet on Saturday that the FBI had missed signs that the shooter was troubled because it was distracted by its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election.
  6. The death of Joanna Demafelis worsened a diplomatic flap between the Philippines and the Gulf States. Photo: AFP ILOILO: More than a hundred relatives and supporters of a Filipina domestic worker, whose body was found stuffed in a freezer in Kuwait, brandished banners demanding justice as her coffin was returned home on Saturday. The family of Joanna Demafelis openly wept as the white casket was unloaded at an airport cargo terminal in the central city of Iloilo. "Justice for Joanna D Demafelis," was emblazoned on banners and on T-shirts worn by the crowd which included a congressman and local officials expressing their anger over the death of the Filipina whose body was found in a freezer in Kuwait earlier this month. The incident worsened a diplomatic flap between the Philippines and Kuwait with President Rodrigo Duterte alleging that Arab employers routinely rape their Filipina workers, force them to work 21 hours a day and feed them scraps. He has also banned the deployment of new workers to Kuwait and ordered airlines to fly home any of the 252,000 Filipinos working there who wish to return. About 10 million Filipinos work abroad and the money they remit back is a lifeline of the Philippine economy. Their treatment abroad is often a political issue at home. Kuwait's foreign minister previously condemned Manila's "escalation," of the issue but Philippine Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano said Friday the Kuwaiti ambassador had assured him his government was "outraged" over the killing and determined to find those responsible. A distraught Eva Demafelis could only say "I am sad," when asked by reporters about the death of her daughter. "She does not deserve the manner in which she died. She was beaten up," said an aunt, Rosela Demafelis Taunan, referring to local news reports about the 29-year-old domestic worker's death. "She decided to go abroad because she wanted to help her parents repair the house that was damaged by Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan)," in 2013, the aunt recalled. The slain domestic worker also wanted to finance the college education of her youngest sister, Joyce, the aunt said. Residents lined the highway as the funeral convoy escorted by police cars and motorcycles made its way to Demafelis' hometown, about a two hour's drive from the city. Labour Secretary Silvestre Bello said late Friday that "working groups" from both countries were discussing forging a memorandum for protecting the rights of Filipinos in Kuwait, many of whom are working as domestic workers. Domestic workers in that country are not covered by ordinary labour legislation, and accounts of Filipinas being subjected to abuse and exploitation in the Middle East have long circulated.
  7. South Korean President Moon Jae-in, his wife Kim Jung-Suk, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of North Korea Kim Young Nam and Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, watch North Korea's Samjiyon Orchestra's performance in Seoul, South Korea, February 11, 2018. ? Reuters SEOUL: A prim, young woman with a high forehead and hair half swept back quietly gazes at the throngs of people pushing for a glimpse of her, a faint smile on her lips and eyelids low as four bodyguards jostle around her. In her first appearance on the global stage, Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, had her every move closely scrutinized. Crowds applauded as she stood for the South Korean anthem during the opening ceremony for the start of the Winter Olympic Games, while her big smiles and relaxed manner left a largely positive impression on the South Korean public. But her sometimes aloof expression and high-tilted chin also spoke of someone who sees herself ?of royalty? and ?above anyone else?, leadership experts and some critics said. Kim Yo Jong?s visit to South Korea, the first by a member of the North?s ruling bloodline since their 1950-53 war, could hardly have come at a more acute time. US Vice President Mike Pence was also in town, leading international pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program and reminding the world of the Kim family?s brutal regime. When shaking hands or eating meals with officials such as South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Kim Yo Jong was all smiles, even agreeing to give a toast suddenly requested of her by the presidential Blue House?s chief of staff. ?I can?t speak very well in public,? she told guests attending a dinner at the five-star Banyan Tree Club and Spa in Seoul. ?I never thought I would visit (the South) so suddenly and believed much would be strange and different but I saw many things that were similar or the same. I hope the day we become one comes soon and hope to see all your friendly faces in Pyongyang.? Soft power With so little known about her (even her age of 28 is unconfirmed), scrutiny on Kim Yo Jong was intense, dominating local media and internet chatrooms. ?Personally I think she looked very relaxed during her visit to South Korea,? said Kang Mi-jin, a North Korean defector who works at the Seoul-based Daily NK website. ?Her facial expressions were cool and she didn?t seem flustered.? Reportedly schooled in Switzerland, the youngest daughter of former leader Kim Jong Il was promoted by her brother to the country?s top decision-making body in October. Kim Man-heum, head of the Korea Academy of Politics and Leadership, said Kim Yo Jong left a largely positive impression on the South Korean public. ?North Korea used ?soft power? this time to engage the South and her being a woman may have contributed more in that aspect,? Kim told Reuters. Even her elegant, sloping handwriting was parsed in South Korean media. Experts said it conveyed confidence, superiority and reflected a positive attitude. Not everyone was impressed, however. Kim Yo Jong?s aloof expression when she wasn?t meeting with high-ranking South Korean government officials and high-tilted chin prompted scorn from many South Koreans, who said she looked ?too haughty? or ?uppity.? ?Her neck is straight and her head is skewed to the right, automatically sending her gaze down. I think this comes from her thinking she is above everyone else,? said Bae Sang-hoon, professor of police science at Seoul Digital University and a former criminal profiler at the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency. Brutal regime Critics also highlighted Kim Yo Jong?s senior role in a regime accused by a United Nations inquiry of systematic torture, starvation and killings comparable to Nazi-era atrocities. Last January, the US Treasury Department blacklisted her along with six other North Korean officials for ?severe human rights abuses? and censorship that concealed the regime?s ?inhumane and oppressive behaviour.? ?Among the upper class in Pyongyang, she is a frightening presence,? because of her relationship with her brother, said An Chan-il, a former North Korean military officer who now runs a think tank in Seoul. ?She has been thought of as royalty since she was born, and she sees herself that way as well.? The body language of the high-ranking North Korean officials who accompanied her was also telling of her status in the North, said analysts. North Korea?s 90-year-old nominal head of state Kim Yong Nam deferred to her upon arrival, asking her to sit down first ahead of tea with the South?s unification minister. It is customary in Korea and some other Asian countries for the highest ranking, usually the eldest, person in the group to sit down first for a meal or meeting. While Kim Yo Jong demurred in front of the cameras, insisting Kim Yong Nam sit first, the impression had been made. ?This showed Kim Yo Jong was the real person in power, and not just because of her lineage,? said Cheong Seong-chang, senior research fellow at the Sejong Institute.
  8. Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat in the second T20 Still searching for their first win on this gloomy tour, Pakistan were off to an attacking start after opting to bat first against New Zealand in the second T20 international at Eden Park, Auckland. Ahmed Shehzad returned to the playing XI, displacing all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz. High-flying New Zealand will look to seal the three-match T20 series whereas Pakistan need a win to avoid another series loss, after suffering a 5-0 clean sweep in the ODI series earlier this month. The Kiwis beat Pakistan by seven wickets in the first T20 in Wellington, as the tourists? batting woes persisted. The Green Shirts could only manage a total of 105, with only Babar Azam and Hasan Ali reaching double figures. New Zealand chased down the target with seven wickets in hand and 25 balls remaining, driven by a power batting show by Colin Munro (49*). Also read: Frustrating to lose but not giving up on youngsters, says Arthur The Green Shirts did a warm-up session ahead of the match today. Playing XI Pakistan: Fakhar Zaman, Ahmed Shehzad, Babar Azam, Sarfraz Ahmed (c), Umar Amin, Haris Sohail, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir, Rumman Raees New Zealand: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson (c), Tom Bruce, Glenn Phillips, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Ben Wheeler, Ish Sodhi, Seth Rance, Trent Boult
  9. A spotted hyena has been sighted in a Gabon national park for the first time in 20 years, conservationists said Friday, Photo: AFP LIBREVILLE: A spotted hyena has been sighted in a Gabon national park for the first time in 20 years, conservationists said Friday, the latest large predator to have returned to a region where many had gone locally extinct. The Bateke Plateau National Park lies close to Gabon's border with the Republic of Congo. Its forests and grasslands once teemed with wildlife, including many large mammal predators, but the ecosystem was decimated by decades of poaching. Officials said a spotted hyena had been caught on camera traps in the park for the first time in two decades giving hope that more large mammals might return after years of conservation efforts. The sighting comes two years after a lone male lion was photographed by camera traps after returning. "The return of these large carnivores is a great demonstration that the efforts of our rangers and partners are having a positive effect on Bateke wildlife," professor Lee White, director of Gabon´s National Parks Agency said in a press release. The spotted hyena was so unknown in recent memories that when researchers showed local park rangers the photographs from the camera traps they did not know the species. But village elders in communities north of the park instantly recognised the hyena, researchers said. The sightings are a far cry from when researchers first set up their camera traps in 2001. That year all they photographed in Bateke was a lone antelope and multiple poachers crossing into the park from the Republic of Congo. The lion first spotted in 2015 has since made the park his home. But he has yet to be joined by any others. "This lion... has been continuously photographed during his three-year reign of the park, but remains alone, calling for a mate," the researchers said.

An unknown man lured the minor into going with him yesterday by offering him to buy candy. The man dropped off the child in the morning near his house, the minor?s uncle said. The boy has no signs of torture on his body, his uncle added. A case against the child?s abduction has been registered in the Aram Bagh Police Station. The family and relatives of the minor had protested at Burns Road over the child's disappearance in the early hours of Saturday. The family had said that the minor had not returned home since Friday. The aggrieved family had recorded their protest by burning tires and forcefully shutting the busy market. A contingent of police and paramilitary forces had also arrived at the Burns Road after the protest. Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan leader Kamran Tessori and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf representative Khurram Sherzaman had arrived at the spot and expressed their support to the family and relatives of the missing. Tessori had said that the rulers should take strict measures against crimes against minors. Saddar SP Tauqeer Naeem earlier told journalists that the child went outside a seminary to get water and then went missing. ?We have taken CCTV footage of some sites and we are reviewing it,? he said. The protestors had dispersed after police filed FIR of the case. Sindh Inspector General of Police A.D. Khowaja has directed DIG South to submit a detailed report in connection with the incident that triggered panic in the area.
  11. Markets in Kasur had been shut down in protest over the incident. Photo: Geo News KASUR: Normalcy seemed to return to Kasur on Friday after several days of protest following the discovery of seven-year-old Zainab's brutal rape and murder. Markets opened after being shut for at least two days as traders announced an end to their strike while traffic began plying on roads that had been blocked by enraged residents protesting the gruesome incident. The minor girl, a resident of Road Kot area of Kasur, had gone missing on January 4 when she ventured out of the house. Her body was found in a garbage pile near Kashmir Chowk five days later. As protests re-erupted in the city on Thursday, the house of local provincial lawmaker Naeem Safdar was ransacked. Police also failed to stop the protesters from ransacking the local government hospital. Violent protests against Zainab?s rape, murder continue in Kasur on second day Residents took to streets in protest, lawyers boycotted courts today Residents protested across the city, including Kali Pul Chowk, whereas the Ferozepur Road, linking Kasur to nearby towns and cities, also remained blocked. Moreover, protest demonstrations over the incident were held across the country, from Peshawar to Karachi. The funeral of the two protesters allegedly killed by the police firing, Shoaib and Mohammad Ali, was held in the city's college ground. Moreover, the funeral prayers of two protesters allegedly killed by police firing a day earlier were held on Thursday. Two policemen and as many civil defence officials have been held for firing on protesters while murder charges have been included in two FIRs registered against 16 unidentified policemen on the complaints of the deceased's brothers.
  12. COLOMBO: Sri Lanka on Tuesday announced Angelo Mathews would return as skipper for limited-overs cricket ahead of the 2019 World Cup, just six months after the all-rounder stepped down from the post. The move comes as a surprise after Mathews, 30, quit last July as captain in all three formats of the game following repeated bouts of injury. Sri Lanka Cricket president Thilanga Sumathipala said the board asked Mathews to reconsider following close consultations with new coach Chandika Hathurusingha and team selectors. Mathews said he took a few days to decide before accepting the captaincy of Sri Lanka´s one-day and Twenty20 teams. "It is a national duty, and we need stability moving into a World Cup in 18 months," said Mathews. Dinesh Chandimal remains Sri Lanka´s Test captain. Sumathipala said Mathews was expected to prepare the squad ahead of the World Cup in England and Wales in 2019. The returning captain will face his first test this month when Sri Lanka travel to Bangladesh for a tri-nation ODI tournament. The allrounder bore the brunt of criticism after Sri Lanka´s embarrassing loss to lowly-ranked Zimbabwe in a home Test series last year.

  13. South Africa's Faf du Plessis makes a run during the first Test cricket match between India and South Africa in Newlands Stadium, Cape Town, South Africa, January 5, 2017. REUTERS/Sumaya Hisham South Africa seamer Dale Steyn grabbed his first test wicket after an injury absence of 14 months as the hosts fought back against a fired-up India on an enthralling first day of cut-and-thrust cricket in the opening test at Newlands on Friday. Steyn took his career tally to 418 wickets, three behind South African record-holder Shaun Pollock, as India were reduced to 28 for three at the close having bowled out the hosts for 286 on a spicy wicket offering bounce and some sideways movement. Cheteshwar Pujara (five) and Rohit Sharma (zero) will resume on the second day as the tourists, who trail by 258, seek an answer to the venom in the pitch and the home seam attack. Steyn, who had missed the last 15 tests with a career-threatening shoulder injury, caught and bowled dangerous opener Shikhar Dhawan for 16 with a quick delivery that proved he has lost none of his paces. ?Having him back after such a long time is special to a lot of us. He has been the spearhead of this attack for such a long time,? Steyn?s fellow opening bowler Vernon Philander said. ?We wanted to get as close to 300 as possible, which I think is a lot of runs on this wicket.? India's captain Virat Kohli gestures after the wall of South Africa's last wicket during the first Test cricket match between India and South Africa in Newlands Stadium, Cape Town, South Africa, January 5, 2017. REUTERS/Sumaya Hisham India also lost Murali Vijay for one, caught by Dean Elgar at gully off Philander, while Morne Morkel claimed the wicket of visiting captain Virat Kohli, who played at a rising delivery outside off-stump and was caught by wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock for five. South Africa won the toss and elected to bat, but were soon in trouble at 12 for three as India seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4-87) tore through the top order. Kumar took a wicket in each of his opening three overs as he snagged opener Elgar with the third ball of the day and then had Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla dismissed cheaply. The home side threw a counter punch with half centuries from AB de Villiers (65) and captain Faf du Plessis (62) as they put on 114 for the fourth wicket. De Villiers reached his 50 off 55 deliveries before being bowled by test debutant Jasprit Bumrah (1-73) after lunch, while Du Plessis flashed at a wide delivery from all-rounder Hardik Pandya (1-53). South Africa?s tail wagged to a degree as they put on 144 for the last five wickets, with De Kock (43) particularly fluent until he was Kumar?s fourth victim, caught behind by wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha. ?We started really well but lost our way. We could have bowled better and gave away 25-30 extra runs,? Kumar said. ?I just wanted to bowl in good areas. We knew the wicket would not be slow and that there would be some lateral movement.? South Africa host India in three tests this month with the next two to be played in Pretoria and Johannesburg.
  14. Whenever there is a new movie or show starring Benedict Cumberbatch, the world sits up and takes notice. And why not? The man has left us awestruck with his past performances especially in the hit series 'Sherlock'. So much so, that we have come to believe that there is no one else who could have done it better than him. © Hartsword Films However, over the past few years, Benedict has been focusing more on movies than TV shows. But luckily for us, he is back with a new TV series because let's face it, we need to see more of him than in a 2-hour long movie. And his upcoming show might even give 'Sherlock' a run for its money. 'Patrick Melrose', the TV series, will be based on the semi-autobiographical novels by Edward St Aubyn, which feature a troubled young man's journey through life in the latter half of the twentieth century. Cumberbatch plays the titular Patrick Melrose, an narcissist alcoholic and playboy who is haunted by his childhood issues. © Little Island Productions The five-part series will take us through Patrick's tormented journey; right from an abused childhood to substance abusing adult. The story will travel from 1960s France to 1980s New York to 2000s Britain as we see Patrick going from being traumatized, © Little Island Productions consuming excess of substances © Little Island Productions and then finally recovering. © Little Island Productions Each of the five episodes will cover one of Edward St. Aubyn's five Patrick Melrose books. Although Cumberbatch as a quirky alcoholic sounds fun but from what have seen in the trailer, the show will definitely hold a deeper and darker meaning. Have a look: An exact air date hasn't been announced yet, but you can expect to see Cumberbatch as Patrick later this year.

Photo: Reuters WhatsApp, a popular messaging service owned by Facebook Inc, suffered a global outage for about an hour on Sunday before the problem was fixed. ?WhatsApp users around the world experienced a brief outage today that has now been resolved?, a WhatsApp spokeswoman said in an emailed statement. The cause of the outage, about an hour long, was not immediately known. In India, its biggest market with about 200 million of its billion-plus users, the app was down just a few minutes past midnight into the new year. WhatsApp back online after mysterious global outage The app 'was not sending or receiving messages according to multiple users' Users in other countries also complained of outages on social media. Earlier, on Dec 1, 2017, WhatsApp was back online for its 1 billion daily users after the app experienced an unexplained outage for a brief period. Similarly, on Nov 3, WhatsApp users were able to send and receive messages after a brief suspension in Pakistan and several other countries. Apart from Pakistan, there reports that WhatsApp was not working for users in the UK, Singapore, India, Middle East and Ukraine. WhatsApp restored after brief suspension Twitter users in Pakistan had complained of the application not functioning According to IT expert Touseef Ikram, the WhatsApp outage started at around 1:10PM and lasted for 45 minutes for most parts of the world. ?While this is the first outage that affected Pakistan to this extent it is not the first time WhatsApp was down or having issues. In October alone it faced these issues five times, in September 15 times and in August 11 times.? Mr Ikram added that WhatsApp was pursuing an aggressive upgradation strategy to combat rivals such as Snapchat and to start the monetization process through WhatsApp business. ?These issues could be related to making these structural changes in the chat app which probably was not envisioned back in 2009 when it started.?

Rani Mukerji in 'Hichki' Rani Mukerji is coming back to the silver screen after a gap of four years, with an inspiring portrayal of a teacher suffering from a neurological disorder in the upcoming film ?Hichki?. The Bollywood actress, who was last seen in ?Mardaani?, is returning from her maternity break as Naina Mathur in ?Hichki?, who dreams of being a teacher despite suffering from Tourette syndrome ? a disorder which causes regular hiccups and involuntary gestures.

This is the first film Rani will be seen in after her marriage to Yash Raj Films? chairman Aditya Chopra.
  17. Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York, US, December 1, 2017. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/Files NEW YORK: Major world stock markets advanced on Thursday and the US dollar rose to a two-week high as risk appetite returned and investors kept an eye on US political developments and awaited a key US jobs report due out on Friday. Wall Street?s main equity indexes rose, while oil prices rebounded a day after hitting two-week lows. A US tax bill moving swiftly through Congress has influenced markets in the past month, with investors hoping that deep cuts to corporate tax rates will help further drive the record-setting run in equities. US Senate Republicans agreed to talks with the House of Representatives on sweeping tax legislation on Wednesday, amid early signs that lawmakers could bridge their differences and agree on a final bill ahead of a self-imposed December 22 deadline. ?We are kind of in a cautious wait-and-see mode trying to determine what the tax policy in the US is going to yield and to what extent that might propel further growth from here,? Peter Jankovskis ? the co-chief investment officer at Lisle, Illinois-based OakBrook Investments LLC ? said. ?Obviously, we have had a very strong run in the markets here in the US in the past year and I think they are probably looking at tax policy as a key to continuing that,? Jankovskis said. Investors were also wary of US negotiations over a spending package. US President Donald Trump will face off with Democratic leaders of Congress on Thursday in a meeting intended to bridge differences over a spending bill and prevent a government shutdown. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 45.15 points (0.19 percent) to 24,186.06, the S&P 500 gained 7.34 points (0.28 percent) to 2,636.61, and the Nasdaq Composite added 45.05 points (0.66 percent) to 6,821.42. The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index rose 0.07 percent. Technology stocks gained in the United States and Europe after the high-flying sector had retreated in recent days. MSCI?s gauge of stocks across the globe added 0.24 percent, after declining the past two sessions. The dollar rose to a two-week high against a basket of currencies, recovering losses against the yen, on stronger risk appetite across markets. The dollar index rose 0.08 percent, with the euro down 0.07 percent to $1.1787. ?Tomorrow?s jobs report will play a significant factor in keeping the (dollar) rally alive and heightening hopes for an early 2018 rate hike,? Lennon Sweeting ? the chief market strategist at Toronto-based XE ? said. Bitcoin soared to a record high of $15,000 on the Bitstamp exchange, continuing a surge from less than $1,000 at the beginning of the year. US Treasury yields were little changed, shrugging off a report on US unemployment as investors held off on major moves ahead of the nonfarm payrolls report due out on Friday. Benchmark 10-year notes last fell 1/32 in price to yield 2.3314 percent, from 2.33 percent late on Wednesday. Oil edged higher, regaining ground from sharp losses the previous day brought on by an unexpectedly large rise in US stocks of refined fuels. US crude rose 0.89 percent to $56.46 per barrel and Brent was last at $61.92, up 1.14 percent on the day. Copper rose 0.24 percent to $6,566.00 a tonne but had yet to retrace steep declines from Tuesday?s session.

  21. Bob Geldof arrives to return his 'Freedom of the City of Dublin' with Oonagh Casey of Dublin's City Manager's office, after saying he could not continue to hold the honour with Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi, in Dublin, Ireland, November 13, 2107. Photo: Reuters DUBLIN: Irish musician and anti-poverty activist Bob Geldof will return his ?Freedom of the City of Dublin? award to his home town on Monday, saying he could not continue to hold the honor with Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Well over 600,000 Muslims from Myanmar?s Rakhine state have fled to refugee camps in Bangladesh after military clearance operations described by the United Nations as ethnic cleansing were launched in response to attacks by Rohingya militants. The plight of the Rohingya has brought outrage from around the world and there have been calls for Suu Kyi to be stripped of the Nobel peace prize she won in 1991 because she has not condemned the Myanmar military?s actions. ?I am a very proud Dubliner but cannot in all conscience continue to be one of the honoured few to have received this great tribute whilst Aung San Suu Kyi remains amongst that number,? Geldof said in a statement. ?In short, I do not wish to be associated in any way with an individual currently engaged in the mass ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya people of North West Burma.? Suu Kyi, previously renowned for her human rights activism, was under house arrest when she was given the Freedom of Dublin in 1999 and received her award at a public reception in Ireland in 2012, two years after her release. Last month she was stripped of a similar honor by the British university city of Oxford, where she was an undergraduate. Other foreign recipients of the Freedom of Dublin since it was first awarded in 1876 include John F. Kennedy, Nelson Mandela and Mikhail Gorbachev. Geldof, a former singer for the Boomtown Rats, was given the honor in 2005 in recognition of his charity work which included organizing the 1985 Live Aid concert, which reached an estimated 1.5 billion people and did much to raise the profile of those suffering from starvation and disease in Ethiopia. ?Her association with our city shames us all and we should have no truck with it, even by default. We honoured her, now she appalls and shames us,? Geldof said. ?The moment she is stripped of her Dublin Freedom perhaps the Council would see fit to restore to me that which I take such pride in. If not so be it. Please accept this small gesture and the sadness that accompanies it.?

Photo: AFP Eminem, U2 and David Guetta will take to the stage in London on Sunday for the MTV Europe Music Awards, which returns to the British capital after more than 20 years. British singer Rita Ora will host the ceremony at Wembley Arena, which for the first time will see categories stripped of gender after MTV announced it wants to "break barriers". Taylor Swift could be the big winner of the night, with the US pop sensation nominated in six categories just two days after her sixth album "Reputation" was released. Although up for awards including best artist, video, and look, it's uncertain whether she will attend the ceremony which is filled with live performances. Top-selling rapper Eminem will unveil his single "Walk on Water" ahead of the release of his latest album "Revival", which comes out on Friday. Bieber leads Europe MTV awards, ahead of Gaga Best Video is determined by MTV's editorial team, but most categories are decided through fans' voting Eminem, who is nominated in the best hip-hop category, last month savaged US President Donald Trump in a video aired at an awards ceremony in Miami. Other nominees set to perform at Wembley include Cuban-American artist Camila Cabello, Canadian singer Shawn Mendez, and the French DJ David Guetta. The majority of the winners will be picked by music fans in an online vote, where there are 12 categories listed in addition to 32 separate prizes for different countries and regions. The best worldwide act and best video will be chosen by the MTV team. Irish band U2 will collect MTV's "Global Icon" gong, previously awarded to Queen, Whitney Houston and Eminem. Eminem sears 'racist' Trump at award show Eminem ends the video by demanding that his fans forswear Trump "U2's impact on music, pop culture and social issues around the world has been tremendous," said Bruce Gillmer, producer of the awards ceremony. "For over four decades and counting, they've entertained, influenced, and inspired fans around the globe," he added. U2 performed in London's Trafalgar Square the night before the MTV awards, along with DJ Guetta, to a crowd of 7,000 who won free tickets in a ballot. Created in 1994, the MTV Europe Music Awards returns to London for the first time since 1996. The cable channel also runs the Video Music Awards which are renowned for top performances and the occasional controversy, including pop diva Lady Gaga wearing a dress made of meat to the ceremony in 2010. The previous Video Music Awards saw hip-hop artist Kanye West leap on stage to interrupt an acceptance speech by Swift and argue that Beyonce was better.
  23. US rapper Eminem performs during the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix After Race closing concert at the du Arena on Yas Island, November 4, 2012. REUTERS/Jumana ElHeloueh/Files NEW YORK: Rap superstar Eminem made his long-awaited return Friday with a strikingly fresh sound ? an introspective ballad that features Beyonce. Eminem, the top-selling rapper of all time who earned his fame on the back of aggressive beats and lightning-quick rhymes, is accompanied almost entirely by piano and strings on the new track, "Walk on Water." In a series of social media posts, the 45-year-old indicated that "Walk on Water" was the debut single of Revival ? a new album that would be his first in four years. Eminem gave no further indication on the release date. MTV simultaneously announced that Eminem would perform "Walk on Water" live for the first time Sunday at the network's European Music Awards in London. "Walk on Water" is driven by a Gospel-tinged chorus in which Beyonce sings of how Eminem ? earlier the self-described "Rap God" ? was deeply human. "I walk on water ? but only when it freezes," sings Beyonce, in one of her first appearances since giving birth to twins in June. In the song, Eminem describes his perfectionism and how it fuels his anxiety as he fears his new material will not live up to his standards. "Will this just be another misstep / To tarnish whatever legacy, love or respect I've garnered?" he raps. "The rhyme has to be perfect / The delivery flawless / And it always feels like I'm hitting the mark / 'Til I go sit in the car, listen and pick it apart." Eminem name-checks legendary late artists including Prince, Tupac Shakur, and The Notorious B.I.G. and declares himself to be in a lesser league. The song only hits an older hip-hop sound in its last moments when, in a sarcastic flash of his old self, Eminem alludes to "Stan," his mega-hit from 2000. Eminem first emerged from a year of quiet last month when he delivered an angry freestyle accusing President Donald Trump of bigotry and incompetence in a video aired at the BET Hip Hop Awards. Eminem, a white Midwesterner whose listener base likely includes many voters for Trump, demanded that his fans choose him or the president, of whom he said, "Racism's the only thing he's fantastic for."

  25. RIYADH: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in Saudi Arabia Saturday, his second visit to the region in recent months as he seeks a breakthrough in a diplomatic crisis gripping the Gulf. Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt cut ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of supporting terrorism and cozying up to Iran. Doha denies the charge. Tillerson made an unsuccessful attempt to resolve the dispute during a trip to the region in July. US President Donald Trump, after initially appearing to support the effort to isolate Qatar, has called for mediation and recently predicted a rapid end to the crisis. But before his arrival at Riyadh´s King Salman air base, Tillerson indicated there had been little progress. "I do not have a lot of expectations for it being resolved anytime soon," he said in an interview with financial news agency Bloomberg. "There seems to be a real unwillingness on the part of some of the parties to want to engage." Aside from the Gulf dispute, Iran, the conflict in Yemen and counter-terrorism also are on the agenda in the Gulf, the State Department said. While in Riyadh, Tillerson will also take part in the first meeting of a Saudi-Iraqi coordination council, a sign of warming relations between the Sunni-ruled kingdom and Baghdad as the Saudis seek to counter Tehran´s influence in Iraq. His trip will also take him to India and Pakistan.
