  1. Milind Sonam and Anita Komwar's love saga is a beautiful story to look at. Breaking down barriers, the duo has been with each other despite all the ups and downs, giving the rest of the country some serious relationship and fitness goals. So, when Milind fells in love once again, the news literally broke hundreds of hearts. Did you do your pushups today ? #Fitterin2018 #100BeforeYouSleep #Live2Inspire #FitnessStartsintheMind A post shared by Milind Usha Soman (@milindrunning) on Jan 7, 2018 at 3:54am PST The 51-year old is enjoying every bit of this new phase in life, just like a giddy teenager. When the world found out about their relationship, they attracted various trolls. But when two people are head over heels in love, nothing matters. Milind and Ankita are going steady and judgmental people who can't stop looking for reasons to criticise them should definitely take some running lessons. 12k with @earthy_5 on beach road and up dolphin hill in Vizag ! #VizagGoingPINK on 7th #LadiesBeTHERE !!! A post shared by Milind Usha Soman (@milindrunning) on Jan 4, 2018 at 8:54pm PST While there were speculations about the two getting hitched, we truly can't get over how they display their love and affection to the whole world without any hesitation. Love is a beautiful feeling and Milind proves that with every photo he shares of Anita. One glance at those snaps and you can see how happy and content he looks around her. Getting back to marriage, Milind finally went on record and talked about his wedding plans with his lady love. Recently, at the cover launch of Health & Nutrition magazine, Milind was asked about his plans to get married to Anita. Find your sunshine ! #BetterHabits4BetterLife #Fitterin2018 Make every choice count :) A post shared by Milind Usha Soman (@milindrunning) on Jan 3, 2018 at 2:29am PST Without even thinking twice he said: “Marriage is always in the offering. Ankita and I have discussed marriage. There's no finalized date yet but we have discussed marriage. I'll be happy to get married to her. She is an amazing person. I often keep telling her how lucky she is to have a hot boyfriend like me.” How simple and lovely! Well, one can expect an official announcement soon.
  2. Will she? Will she not? This speculation about Vidya Balan playing India's first female Prime Minister Indira Gandhi has been creating a buzz in B-town for almost two years now. But finally we have an answer and we are already excited about the outcome. Vidya, who is critically known for playing powerful characters, has actually acquired the rights of Sagarika Ghose's book 'Indira: India's Most Powerful Prime Minister'. And she will be seen playing the titular role. The confirmation came when Sagarika took to Twitter and announced the news saying, “Just signed the contract for movie rights for my book "Indira, India's Most Powerful PM" with @vidya_balan and @roykapurfilms! Utterly elated!! Look fwd to seeing INDIRA on screen! @juggernautbooks #IndiraTheMovie” Just signed the contract for movie rights for my book "Indira, India's Most Powerful PM" with @vidya_balan and @roykapurfilms! Utterly elated!! Look fwd to seeing INDIRA on screen! @juggernautbooks #IndiraTheMovie — Sagarika Ghose (@sagarikaghose) January 10, 2018 Now, that's some good news after all. The 'Tumhari Sulu' actress' fans have been waiting to hear this news for a very long time and this confirmation comes as a relief. It all started in 2015 when director Manish Gupta went to Vidya with this script, she was blown away and instantly loved the idea of playing India's Iron Lady. However, getting a green signal from the Congress office for Manish was a tedious task. © Twitter But there is nothing to worry about anymore. As per the rules, when a film is based on a book, you don't really need permission from the political party to make a film. So one thing is sure, this film isn't getting stalled because of political influence. In fact, one can even expect the official announcements to be made soon. In fact, Sagarika's book doesn't really portray Indira Gandhi in a bad light as it hardly deals with the controversial aspect of her tenure. It deals with different aspects of Indira's life; like her failed marriage, reasons behind the Emergency in 1975, her unsettled relationship with her son Sanjay Gandhi, and other political issues. That's the reason why Congress Minister P Chidambaram was the one who launched this book in the first place. © Twitter For many who are still wondering. Let us tell you, the fate of the film won't be like Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Indu Sarkar', which was brutally chopped before it was given a clearance certificate by the CBFC, nor would it hurt anyone's sentiments per se. So, let's get ready to see Vidya all decked in crisp cotton saris playing one of the most talked about and influential leaders of India who changed the whole political scenario of the nation.
  3. 2017 was undoubtedly a great year for Rajkummar Rao. Rao not only proved that he is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood, but also showed the world that he is here for the long run. From 'Newton', 'Bareilly Ki Barfi', 'Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana', to 'Behen Hogi Teri' and 'Bose'; Rao literally ruled the box-office this year with his back to back brilliant performances. © instagram And he completely deserves all the awards and respect in the world because this man works really hard and gives his all to the movies he works on. Earlier this year, he posted his transformation pictures on Instagram, which proves that things were never easy for him and that he has achieved all this only and only through hard work and dedication. #AnActorsLife #Building a character. From Behen Hogi Teri to Trapped to currently shooting for #Bose. Nothing gives me more high than preparing and living a character. A post shared by Raj Kummar Rao (@rajkummar_rao) on Jul 4, 2017 at 10:42pm PDT After impressing us with his exceptional performances, Rao is back to make 2018 scarier for us with his upcoming horror-comedy flick alongside Shraddha Kapoor. The movie is directed by Amar Kaushik and written by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. For quite some time, reports of Rajkummar and Shraddha featuring together in a movie were making rounds. The news was further confirmed when Shraddha posted a picture of her with Rajkummar Rao, teasing us about the movie. But..... what's the title? Readings with the absolutely fantastic @RajkummarRao Horror-comedy time! ð» — Shraddha (@ShraddhaKapoor) 8 January 2018 Well, guess what, now the movie has a name and the title is completely unexpected yet intriguing. Rajkummar revealed the title of the movie on Twitter and announced that shoot has already started for the movie. The title of the movie is 'Stree'. We have a title! Shoot starts on our horror-comedy #Stree. Exciting schedule ahead! @ShraddhaKapoor Directed by Amar Kaushik Written by Raj&DK Produced by Dinesh Vijan, Raj&DK — Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) 11 January 2018 Apart from 'Stree', Shraddha will also star opposite our beloved Baahubali Prabhas in the upcoming thriller 'Saaho'. She will also work next to Shahid Kapoor in 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu'. As for Rajkummar, he will be seen in 'Fanne Khan' alongside Aishwarya Rai and Anil Kapoor.
  4. If you still follow the "female driver, haha" or "oh, woman driver" schools of thought, you've got to check out these 10 super hot women celebrities and their choice of rides. Not only are we sure that there is no room for error with these rides, we can also bet our butt on how they would zip, zap and zoom before one could even tell who it is behind the wheel! 1. Gigi Hadid BMW i8 Gigi likes the Bavarian Motor Works, a bit too much, in fact, given that she already has an M2 Coupe, but the one fantastic ride that we had to mention was the marque auto-maker's i8-- girl knows how to pack green and clean power with style! 2. Kylie Jenner Ferrari 488 Spider The love for G-Wagons and Range Rovers is an epidemic in the family, but Kylie loves her some sports action, which is why a Ferrari 488 Spider, although that isn't the only Ferrari she owns because... 458 Spider, tra la la-- can't just own one, eh? 3. Amber Rose Jeep Wrangler Rebel Rose has a rose coloured car, well, pink chrome to be precise, and there couldn't be a cheekier choice made for the radical model/actor/music artist's personality to reflect on her ride. The shocking pink Jeep Wrangler has got to be one of the most eccentrically customised cars we've laid eyes on! 4. Blac Chyna Lamborghini Huracan Not much to say here when you know the lady wants to arrive like a storm because that's what this Lamborghini is named after-- the God of the hurricane. The chrome purple wrap speaks volumes about gender neutrality with just enough spunk to indicate the radical personality behind the steering wheel. 5. Rihanna Maybach 57 S An iconic ride for the iconic star, the Maybach 57 S spells pure luxury and the Badgal RiRi clearly likes to Shut Up and Drive around in the smooth operating vehicle that is the Maybach 57 S coupe. A chic ride like that, probably makes her a good girl, though, don't you think? 6. Nicki Minaj Lamborghini Aventador Pop icon Nicki Minaj's custom Lamborghini is legend because the bubblegum pink car wrap and alloy rims are hard to miss. Don't be fooled by the peppy colour though, the Aventador is a nasty road beast with a top speed of 370kmph and a pump to jump 0-100kmph of merely 3 seconds! 7. Beyonce 1959 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II Queen B is royalty, as is her vintage chariot and we didn't expect to see her drive around in anything lesser! We're she's in the mood to add volume to her curls, or add drama to her drive by letting the wind cool her skin, she probably drives it with the top down. Much excite! 8. Adrianna Lima Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid The Brazilian bombshell may like flouncy lingerie but there's nothing flouncy about her Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid. If you've been watching her workout videos for Victoria's Secret, you'll know she kicks butt and trains hard, never giving away her age or the fact that she's a mother of two. Naturally, a sturdy car, for a sturdy mommy/model and she's imparting green habits in her children, very responsible! 9. Paris Hilton Bentley Continental GT What does heiress Hilton's custom ride tell you about her? a) She's rich b) She loves pink c) She cares for sophistication as much as she does about performance Who's the real Powerfuff Girl? 10. Victoria Beckham Range Rover Evoque Posh Spice. Dainty as she might be, her choice for a ride will remind you why not to judge a book by its cover because a Range Rover is for one who's spirit runs wild! Incidentally, hubby, David, drives a Jeep Wrangler and Cadillac Escalade. Won't be surprised to see their kids off-roading in tanks in the future-- it's a family thing!
  5. Site of the suicide bombing in Quetta QUETTA: A special investigation team has been constituted to investigate Tuesday?s suicide bombing near the Balochistan Assembly building in Quetta, in which six persons, including four Balochistan Constabulary personnel, were martyred and 17 others injured. The attacker blew himself up close to a police truck near GPO Chowk on Zarghoon Road, located in the provincial capital's high-security Red Zone just 300 metres from the provincial assembly building. Senior police officials later said the intended target appeared to be the vehicle of the Balochistan Constabulary personnel. DIG Quetta Abdul Razzaq Cheema informed that samples of the attacker?s remains have been collected, which along with other evidences will be dispatched to Punjab Forensics Laboratory. Six, including four security personnel, martyred in Quetta suicide bombing 17 others injured after bomber targets police truck, just 300 metres from the Balochistan Assembly Officials of the bomb disposal team, who examined the location to ascertain the nature of the blast, said the bomber, who was between 15 and 20 years of age, detonated between 8 and 10 kilograms of explosive material. A case was filed late Tuesday night against the incident, with charges relating to murder and terrorism. The latest terror attack to hit Quetta came at a time when a special session of the provincial assembly had been called to take up a no-confidence vote against Sanaullah Zehri, but the session was postponed after the chief minister tendered his resignation.
  6. The students were critically injured when they were hit by the bus while trying to cross the road. They have been shifted to the hospital for treatment-Geo News JARANWALA: A group of students on Tuesday set on fire the bus of a private company after it ran over and injured three of their classmates, police said. Rescue and police officials have doused the fire. The students were injured when they were hit by the bus while trying to cross the road. They were shifted to the hospital in critical condition.

  7. US Astronauts John Young (R) and Robert Crippen (L) in the flight deck of the space shuttle Columbia before the first shuttle flight at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, US, April 11, 1981. AFP/NASA/Files WASHINGTON: John Young, a legendary US astronaut who went into space six times, orbited the moon and then walked on its craggy surface, has died, NASA announced Saturday. He was 87 and died late Friday of complications from pneumonia, the space agency said. He lived in a Houston suburb just minutes from the NASA Space Center. "NASA and the world have lost a pioneer," agency administrator Robert Lightfoot said in a statement. "We will stand on his shoulders as we look toward the next human frontier." Young was a man of many firsts: the only astronaut to fly in the Gemini, Apollo and space shuttle programs (and the first to command a shuttle flight); and the first to fly into space six times. He once held the world record for total time spent in space, NASA said. ´Boldest flight in history´ Young joined Gus Grissom on the Gemini 3 mission, then commanded the first space shuttle mission in what some people called "the boldest test flight in history." He commanded Gemini 10, the first mission to rendezvous with two other spacecraft during a single flight. Young orbited the moon in Apollo 10 and made a lunar landing with Apollo 16. "In an iconic display of test pilot ´cool,´ he landed the space shuttle (STS-9) with a fire in the back end," NASA said. "He was in every way the ´astronaut´s astronaut,´" Lightfoot said. But he was also described as a savvy engineer and a "test pilot´s test pilot." While in the navy, Young set world records for the fastest ascension from a standing start in an F-4 Phantom II jet. Once, during an air-to-air missile test, Young and another pilot approached each other´s aircraft at a potentially calamitous speed of Mach 3 (2,300 miles per hour, or 3,700 kilometres per hour), according to Young´s website. "I got a telegram from the chief of naval operations," Young said in his understated way, "asking me not to do this any more." Fellow astronaut Charles Bolden called Young and Robert "Hoot" Gibson the two best pilots he had ever known. "Never met two people like them," he said. "Everyone else gets into an aeroplane; John and Hoot wear their aeroplane. They´re just awesome."
  8. If one thing that's not constant in Bollywood, then that is actors. Many come to make it big but only some manage to stay. Impressing audience and making a place in their heart isn't that easy. It takes a lot from an actor to make or break in B-town. 2017 wasn't a great year for the film industry and we hope 2018 begins on a good note. This year won't just see some promising movies hitting the screen but also some new faces making their debut in the movies. Some of them are known B-town kids while some will be seen taking a route from Television to films and another making his entry from Malayalam cinema to Hindi. We all know that Bollywood can definitely use some fresh talent and it would be interesting to see these new talents giving their best to rock the silver screen with their performances. Here's a list of eight promising debutants of 2018: Sara Ali Khan Father A post shared by Sara Ali Khan (@officialsaraalikhan) on Jan 2, 2018 at 12:16am PST Well, she is drop-dead gorgeous, thanks to her genes. Daughter of famous celebrities Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, Sara Ali Khan is all set to make her debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in 'Kedarnath'. The girl has got a massive fan following even before she stepped into the industry and one can see that she is here to stay! Dulquer Salmaan Thank you Behindwoods for my Best Actor Critics award ! Feels epic to win a Gold Medal ! Was a lovely event and I had a blast. Always great catching up with friends from both Malayalam and Tamil industries. A big thanks to my buddy @osmanabdulrazak for my perfectly tailored suit and of course @kalyanidesai for styling me ! #behindwoods #awards #suited #walkingtheramp #feltspiffy #smance #worepinkforprincess #babyboo #suddenloveforpink #daddycool A post shared by Dulquer Salmaan (@dqsalmaan) on Jun 13, 2017 at 12:28am PDT He is a darling of Malayalam films and a total heartthrob. Dulquer Salmaan is all set to make his Bollywood debut with Irrfan Khan in 'Karwaan'. Believe it or not, this is one hell of a pairing to see. If you want to see Dulquer's smashing performance check out 'Kanmani'. Yes, that's the OG that inspired 'Ok Jaanu', but Sharadha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur were nothing in front of Dulquer and Nithya Menen. Watch it and have your heart stolen by his impeccable performance. Janhvi Kapoor #Dhadak A post shared by Janhvi Kapoor (@janhvikapoor) on Nov 15, 2017 at 7:44pm PST Sridevi's daughter Janhvi is already a social butterfly. She is loved by her fans and they just can't stop obsessing over her. All set to make her debut, she is being launched by none other than Nepotism daddy Karan Johar, who is known for launching star kids in the industry. The first look of her film 'Dhadak' which is a remake of Marathi superhit film 'Sairat' has already created quite a stir in the industry and many await to see her on the big screen. Ishaan Khatter @bibizeebamiraie has me all dressed up for tonight in a supercool outfit by @antar_agni_ujjawaldubey assisted by @shreyavaid09.. A few hours to go before we share this labour of love for the first time on our own soil. In the name of god. #BEYONDTHECLOUDS The world is one family. A post shared by Ishaan Khatter (@ishaan95) on Nov 20, 2017 at 2:08am PST Unlike others, Ishaan has already garnered praise for his excellent work in Majid Majidi's 'Beyond the Clouds'. And now he is all set to win Bollywood with 'Dhadak'. Yes, KJo is launching both Janhvi and Ishaan this year. Mithila Palkar ð£ Props @varshaharlalka Also, big shout out to @veromodaindia for sending in the holiday cheer! ð¸ @pratikvatkar #Australia2017 A post shared by Mithila Palkar (@mipalkarofficial) on Dec 24, 2017 at 12:33am PST Known for her role in the web series, Mithila Palkar already rules the web. And now the beautiful actress is all set to conquer B-town as well. Wonder with whom is she making her debut? It's none other than Dulquer as well. We just can't wait to see the two in 'Karwaan' together. Banita Sandhu A post shared by Banita Sandhu (@banita.sandhu) on Dec 6, 2017 at 2:41am PST All the way from the UK, Banita is all set to kickstart her career in B-town and she couldn't have asked for better. Shoojit Sircar has signed her opposite Varun Dhawan for film 'October'. Lucky girl! Mouni Roy Hopelessly flawed .. A post shared by mon (@imouniroy) on Dec 29, 2017 at 5:29am PST From being every guy's heartthrob to having a huge fan following, Mouni Roy needs no introduction. The girl has already made her name on the small screen and now is gearing up for her Bollywood debut. And boy, the film in her kitty ain't a small one. She will be seen starring opposite Akshay Kumar in 'Gold'. She will also be seen in 'Brahmastra' which stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Looks like the girl is already hell-bent on getting some good work. Aayush Sharma Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it - BL #candid #bnw #potraitmode #applewatchseries3 A post shared by Aayush Sharma (@aaysharma) on Dec 6, 2017 at 6:47am PST For a while now we have been hearing that Salman Khan will be launching his brother-in-law Aayush Sharma. Well, it's finally happening as he will be seen making his debut with Bhai's own production film Loveraatri. That's quite a number, we must say. It would be interesting to see who dazzles the audience and who disappoints them. Let us know who do you think will make it big.
  9. Since 2017 'Kesari' has been in news. Battle of Saragarhi is the latest love of Bollywood and there are many who are working on projects related to that combat. Be it Ajay Devgn, Randeep Hooda or Akshay Kumar; all are prepping to play Havildar Ishar Singh. While we have seen Hooda's look for a while now, finally we get a glimpse of Akshay Kumar's character as well. A saffron turban-clad man with that beard and those intense eyes—that's one hell of a look. And we are just stunned by the transformation of Khiladi Kumar. One glance at Akki and we wonder if there's anything this man can't do! The actor began shooting for the film today and shared the first look on Twitter saying, “Feeling nothing but immense pride and gratitude while sharing this. Beginning my 2018 with #KESARI, my most ambitious film and a lot of passion. Need your best wishes as always @dharmamovies @iAmAzure @SinghAnurag79.” Feeling nothing but immense pride and gratitude while sharing this. Beginning my 2018 with #KESARI, my most ambitious film and a lot of passion. Need your best wishes as always ðð» @dharmamovies@iAmAzure @SinghAnurag79 — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) January 5, 2018 This is the first time Karan Johar and Akshay have collaborated together. The filmmaker was beyond excited to have Akshay on-board for this huge project. Previously, it was supposed to be a joint venture between Karan and Salman Khan, but things didn't work out. Extremely excited to see this exceptional and brave story unfold!!! @akshaykumar #KESARI #holi2019 — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) October 10, 2017 However, the team has already started shooting and even Karan took to Twitter and said, “Exceptionally excited about #KESARI...the BRAVEST story ever told....we begin our journey today... we seek your love and blessings....@akshaykumar @SinghAnurag79 @iAmAzure @apoorvamehta18.” Exceptionally excited about #KESARI...the BRAVEST story ever told....we begin our journey today... we seek your love and blessings....@akshaykumar @SinghAnurag79 @iAmAzure @apoorvamehta18 — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) January 5, 2018 If reports are to be believed, Lawrence Woodward, who worked on films like 'Mad Max: Fury Road' will be seen working on the stunts for the film and one can totally expect some badass action sequences in this film as well. वà¥à¤°à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¾ रà¤à¤ 2019 मà¥à¤ हà¥à¤à¤¾ #Kesari @akshaykumar @SinghAnurag79 @iAmAzure #CapeOfGoodFilms — Dharma Productions (@DharmaMovies) January 5, 2018 It would be interesting to see Akshay Kumar telling us an interesting tale. Not many are aware of this battle and we bet this will be a great watch because we can't expect anything less from Akshay anyway. Saying we are excited about the film already would be an understatement.

  11. Normalcy has finally resumed after our respective New Year's parties ended over the weekend as 2018 is officially here. But, while everyone has pretty much returned to their daily routine, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan are yet to get out of their party mode. Stunning @virat.kohli dancing with @shikhardofficial & Zoravar on Gurudas Maan's Song ð ♥ï¸ #gurudasmann #virushkareception #virushkawedding #anushkasharma #viratkohli #viratanushka #couplegoals ⤠A post shared by Virat Kohli (@viratkohli18.insta) on Dec 21, 2017 at 9:24pm PST The duo,along with Dhawan's son Zoravar, hogged the limelight at Kohli's reception in Delhi where their dance moves proved to be a huge hit with the Indian fans. And now, Kohli and Dhawan seem to have taken their party to South Africa where India is set to embark on a gruelling tour. Ahead of India's first Test against South Africa, Dhawan and Kohli set the streets of Cape Town on fire with their impromptu Bhangra moves. Taking their families out for a stroll at the V&A Waterfront, the duo spotted a street band dishing out some local music. Spotted @virat.kohli and @shikhardofficial hanging at the waterfront! #viratkohli #capetown #vawaterfront A post shared by Rahim Manji (@rahim.manji) on Dec 30, 2017 at 10:23am PST After grooving to the beats of the band for a while, Kohli and Dhawan turned on their Punjabi mode and showed off some sick Bhangra moves. The Instagram video, which has taken social media by storm, shows the two Indian stars dancing to the tunes of local music before Zoravar interrupted and dragged daddy Dhawan away. Following a prolific run at home, the Indian team will lock horns with the Proteas in three Tests, six One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) slated to begin on 5 January. On Sunday, Team India was also forced to shift their practice sessions indoors due to incessant rains at the Newlands Cricket Stadium in Cape Town. Indian opener Rohit Sharma also gave a glimpse of their net session in a video put up in the BCCI website. The video shows Rohit waiting for his turn in the nets while KL Rahul, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane were seen honing their skills. VIDEO: Inside Team India's indoor nets session with The Hitman. The training session on Day 2 of India's Tour to South Africa shifted indoors and we had @ImRo45 giving us an insider's account #SAvIND — BCCI (@BCCI) January 1, 2018 “You can see in net no 1 there is Ajinkya Rahane, net no 2 has (KL) Rahul and net no 3 has Virat (Kohli),” Rohit says in the video. He then points out the members of the coaching staff who are helping out the batsmen. Fielding coach R Sridhar was at the bowling machine for Rahane while throw-down specialist Raghu was with Rahul. Kohli was tended to by batting coach Sanjay Bangar and head coach Ravi Shastri. On the sidelines Murali Vijay was in gear speaking with Bharat Arun. “I'm sure Vijay is looking for some bowling tips there,” says Rohit before laughing.
  12. A woman speaks on a phone in a cafe in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Oct 6, 2016/Reuters RIYADH: Apple and Amazon are in licensing discussions with Riyadh on investing in Saudi Arabia, two sources told Reuters, part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman?s push to give the conservative kingdom a high-tech look. A third source confirmed that Apple was in talks with SAGIA, Saudi Arabia?s foreign investment authority. Both companies already sell products in Saudi Arabia via third parties but they and other global tech giants have yet to establish a direct presence. Amazon?s discussions are being led by cloud computing division Amazon Web Services (AWS), which would introduce stiff competition in a market currently dominated by smaller local providers like STC and Mobily. Riyadh has been easing regulatory impediments for the past two years, including limits on foreign ownership which had long kept investors away, since falling crude prices highlighted the need to diversify its oil-dependent economy. Luring Apple and Amazon would further Prince Mohammed?s reform plans and raise the companies? profile in a young and relatively affluent market, which already boasts some of the highest internet and smartphone use in the world. About 70 percent of the Saudi population is under 30 and frequently glued to social media. A licensing agreement for Apple stores with SAGIA is expected by February, with an initial retail store targeted for 2019, said two sources familiar with the discussions. Amazon?s talks are in earlier stages and no specific date has been set for investment plans, they said. Apple already holds second place in the Saudi mobile phone market behind Samsung, according to market researcher Euromonitor. Amazon acquired Dubai-based online retailer earlier in 2017, opening access for Amazon retail goods to be sold in the kingdom. Both companies declined to comment, while SAGIA was not immediately available to answer questions about the discussions. Lengthy courtship While Saudi reform plans call for luring foreign investment broadly across sectors, officials have courted Silicon Valley players especially strongly over the past two years to complement their high-tech ambitions. Prince Mohammed is an avowed technophile and has styled himself a disrupter in the model of Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates. During an official visit to the United States last year he met executives at Facebook, Microsoft and Uber, in which the sovereign wealth fund he chairs later took a $3.5 billion stake. A man speaks on a phone as he walks past the Kingdom Centre Tower in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Nov 5, 2017/Reuters Since then, he has also set up a $45 billion technology investment fund with Japan?s SoftBank and announced plans to create a futuristic $500 billion mega-city with more robots than humans. Apple and Amazon have both been on a Saudi priority list of foreign firms which officials hope to attract to further their reforms, one of the sources said. ?Many tech multinationals now in Saudi Arabia are either vendors to the Saudi government or, in the case of Uber, have benefited from a sizable Saudi investment,? said Sam Blatteis, who heads Dubai-based tech advisory MENA Catalysts Inc. ?Amazon entering the Saudi market would be a step-change.? For Amazon, the move underscores how AWS is looking to take an early lead in selling data storage and computing services to customers in the Middle East. AWS, the world?s biggest cloud business by revenue, has embarked on a slower global expansion than No.2 Microsoft, which now offers cloud services in twice as many regions. However, Microsoft has yet to announce plans for data centers in the Middle East, with three regions in India serving as its closest operations. AWS said in September it would set up data centers for the region in neighboring Bahrain. The kingdom has been streamlining its many overlapping laws which could apply to cloud computing for more than a year in order to attract service providers. If completed, a cloud deal could pave the way for an expansion of Amazon retail warehouses in Saudi Arabia. Although Amazon operates its diverse business units separately, it has rolled out its near-full suite of retail, third-party marketplace and cloud services in countries of operation over time. Apple stores would raise the profile of the company?s products and offer repairs and community events in line with its strategy to brand its stores as ?town squares?.
  13. While most of the actors failed to impress us, 2017 has been a golden year for Akshay Kumar. From 'Jolly LLB2' to 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha', Khiladi ruled the box office. And 2018 will be one hell of a year as well for Akshay who is all set to entertain us with three films. The actor will start the year with R Balki's 'Padman' which has already created a lot of buzz in the town. All set to hit the screens on 26th January 2018, the film also stars Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor in vital roles. The trailer of the film which was released earlier has been hailed and cheered. Produced by Twinkle Khanna's production house Mrs Funnybones Movies, it is one of the much awaited films of 2018. The makers have now unveiled a new poster of the movie that has millions of stories to tell. Akshay took to Twitter and shared the poster, "What it takes to be #PadMan! Get to know this Republic Day, 26.01.18 And today don't forget to catch me with the real Pad Man, @murugaofficial LIVE on my Facebook page at 12 noon IIT Bombay's Mood Indigo! @PadManTheFilm @SonyPicsIndia@kriarj #RBalki" What it takes to be #PadMan! Get to know this Republic Day, 26.01.18 And today don't forget to catch me with the real Pad Man, @murugaofficial LIVE on my Facebook page at 12 noon IIT Bombay's Mood Indigo!@PadManTheFilm @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) December 22, 2017 Recently at the song launch, Akshay said, "With Toilet: Ek Prem Katha we had shown it (film) on Doordarshan channel, the government is also doing a good job by taking the film in a pen-drive and showing it in villages so that more people can see the film and understand it. We will do something similar for PadMan. Our aim is not to earn money through the film but it should reach more people, more places where it is needed. We will also take the help of the government." Twinkle, who has done all the research work of the film and came up with this concept, said, "We would want the film to be shown to school girls and principals, so it penetrates where it has to. At least we are hoping a conversation starts where the same girls, who can't afford a sanitary pad, would say to their parents that we don't need fairness creams, we need sanitary pads so that we can go to schools." PadMan is a real-life story that clearly states that you need a fighter to achieve any freedom.
  14. The logo of Goldman Sachs is displayed in their office located in Sydney, Australia, May 18, 2016. REUTERS/David Gray/Files Goldman Sachs Group Inc is setting up a trading desk to make markets in digital currencies like bitcoin, Bloomberg reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The Wall Street bank aims to get the business running by the end of June, Bloomberg reported on Thursday. ?In response to client interest in digital currencies, we are exploring how best to serve them,? Goldman spokesperson Michael DuVally told Reuters, declining to confirm or deny the news report.
  15. Mood Indigo, one of the most awaited events of the year, is back with its 47th edition, and it is the best way to end this year with a bang. Who would have thought a college fest that was started by four students back in 1971 with just â¹5000 would gain so much prominence over the years that it would become Asia's largest cultural festival? Well, if you have attended this highly anticipated college fest, you would know how deserving of the title it is. 1. The Exciting Themes © Mood Indigo (Facebook) With each passing year, it just gets better and better with a new and exciting theme. After celebrating the indomitable spirit of aamchi Mumbai last year, this year they're taking it up a notch and basically just celebrating celebrations. With the exciting theme of La Fête Carnaval, the festival is going to bring in elements from carnivals all around the world to provide a near-magical experience for the senses. The carnival theme is so extravagant with so many elements, it'll be a celebration like no other; we're talking carousels, aerial dragons, fire performers, jugglers and masquerade masks. 2. A Unique And Massive Opportunity For Students © Mood Indigo (Facebook) One of the main thing that sets Mood Indigo apart from any other college fest out there is the amount of planning and organizing that goes into it, which is all done by the students with just one common goal – to make the three days unforgettable for everyone. It is no wonder that not only IITians, but every college student in the country eagerly waits for this festival all year. Along with that, it provides an incredible and unique opportunity for the students from all over the country to showcase their talents in front of extremely large audiences and top-notch judges. It is a massive platform for cultural exchange, and it's not all fun and games. 3. The Fest Gives Back To Society © Mood Indigo (Facebook) They always have a social cause attached to the fest as a way to give back to the society. This year, the fest is championing the expansion of stem-cell donor registry through its initiative 'Swab to Save'. 4. All The Exciting Celebrities And Events © Mood Indigo (Facebook) Moreover, the festival is famous for the amount of celebrities and world renowned musical acts they attract. Did you know that Porcupine Tree's first ever performance in India was at Mood Indigo back in 2009? They're also responsible for getting Simple Plan to the country in 2012. And, this year won't be any different. One of the biggest highlights of this year is Akshay Kumar, who is coming down to the campus on 22nd. But, it's not just limited to Bollywood, there's something for everyone. On the International music front, the fest will see exciting talents across various genres from countries like Israel and Denmark. Like always, this year will also feature performances by some of the best artist. You'll have your pick from progressive metal band Haken for the Livewire Nite on December 22 or a full-blown Coke-Studio-esque set-up with Clinton Cerejo's band and Vijay Prakash or even the EDM Nite with Bassjackers on December 24. Obviously, music and dance go hand in hand. With the DanceFest launching this year, it will provide a great platform for amazing dance forms from across the globe to showcase their talent. And, don't worry about the humour quotient as well, as the fest will have big names like Mallika Dua and Sunil Pal taking care of that. Along with that, there will be a lot of interactive workshops with professionals, including heavyweights like Rahul Kaushik - owner of the Facebook page, The Melting Words and Neeta Lulla, the reigning queen of India's fashion industry. 5. Best Competitions In The Country © Mood Indigo (Facebook) Lastly, how can we forget about the competitions! The four-day fest will see the best college teams from all over India vying it out for top honours and prizes worth â¹8,50,000. Wow, that's a lot of money. The students can choose among genres such as literary arts, dramatics, music, dance, and various other performing and non-performing arts. So, the bottom line is you really don't want to miss out on this celebration of joy, art and culture like no other.
  16. In 2007, Imtiaz Ali gave us a movie that managed to hit home with every single person, irrespective of their differences. We found a bit of Geet and Aditya in each one of us. Well, that's the charm of Imtiaz's films. He brings on-screen what other directors just can't at time…magic. Not only do we live his stories but he makes the plot so relatable that you can't get over it. Such was the story of 'Jab We Met' and the memories of the film are still like a breath of fresh air. © Twitter And after a decade Shahid Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali are all set to recreate that magic once again and we are can't wait to see their final product. The two have collaborated on a new project and fans obviously are exhilarated with the news. The project goes on the floor as soon as Shahid wraps up Shree Narayan Singh's 'Batti Gull Meter Chalu'. Earlier there were speculations about the news and, finally, Shahid confirmed the same. © Twitter The 'Rangoon' actor is excited to work with Imtiaz, who he feels is a phenomenal director. The two worked together when they were kick-starting their careers and their coming back together looks like a perfect choice. Not much is known about the film, but it is very different from what they both have done in the past. Imtiaz's 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma turned out to be a disaster and this news brings in new hope for his fans. © Twitter Currently, Shahid is looking forward to the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati', whose release has been delayed due to controversies. It would be interesting to see who is cast opposite the actor in Imtiaz's next.
  17. HARARE: Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa gave his clearest signal yet on Tuesday that he would appoint as vice president the military leader who led the de facto coup that ousted former leader Robert Mugabe last month. At a ceremony marking Constantino Chiwenga?s retirement and handover of the military reins to Phillip Sibanda at an army barracks near Harare?s international airport, Mnangagwa lauded Chiwenga for his consistency and steadfastness. ?I therefore urge you to maintain the same loyalty, robustness and dedication to duty as you move to your next assignment which is quite prominent,? he said without elaborating. Mnangagwa said on Friday he would fill the two vice presidential posts in the following few days. Chiwenga is the top contender in what is seen as a reward for helping to end Mugabe?s 37-year rule. Mnangagwa has appointed several senior military officers to his cabinet and the ruling party?s executive politburo since he was sworn in as president on Nov. 24 in what some political analysts say reflects the army?s consolidation of power since it turned against the 93-year-old Mugabe. Chris Mutsvangwa, special adviser to the president and the influential leader of the war veterans? association, rejected criticism of the military appointments, saying they were not unique to Zimbabwe. He pointed to the former generals in US President Donald Trump?s cabinet. He also denied a report by the privately owned NewsDay newspaper that he had said the army would play a role in elections due next year. ?It?s a lie ... I said there was a team which helped to undo the dynastic tendencies of geriatric Mugabe and his mid-wife (sic),? he told reporters at his offices in Harare. ?I promised to the new president that we are going to deliver an electoral victory but that team specifically excludes the army because the army had played a role earlier and because the army is a professional army and does not get involved in election campaigns.? The elections are due by July 2018 but Mnangagwa has said they may be held sooner than expected. Mnangagwa told members of his ruling ZANU-PF party on Friday they would have to start fixing the economy if they wanted a chance of winning next year?s vote. The southern African nation?s economy collapsed in the latter half of Mugabe?s rule, especially after the violent seizures of thousands of white-owned commercial farms.
  18. 'Bash brothers' Brendon McCullum and Chris Lynn at a moment during Brisbane Heat match/File SYDNEY: Australia´s high-octane Big Bash League launches its seventh season on Tuesday with the whiz-bang Twenty20 cricket league looking to build on attendance and television ratings successes, with Perth Scorchers favourites to win another crown. More than one million people went to BBL matches last season with average crowds topping 30,000. While it trails the Indian Premier League (IPL) in overall attendance and financial clout, officials claim it was the fifth-biggest league in the world last season in terms of people turning up to watch. Big Bash head Kim McConnie said Cricket Australia had even higher expectations for the fast-paced, family-friendly competition that sold out 35 matches last year. There will be eight more fixtures, up to 43, and four new venues around the country. "We believe this is going to be one of the most exciting BBL seasons to date," said McConnie, just two months into her job as the new BBL chief. "Sport is entertainment. So what we´re seeing, even from a cricket purist who loves to watch the Big Bash because they love the competition, they also like the entertainment and the fact they can bring their kids. "They want to be entertained and make sure they´re getting more for their dollar." In glitzy style, BBL has led the way with LED stumps and bails flashing on impact. They also have helmet cameras on batsmen and in recent seasons players have been worn microphones to talk to commentators during play. Former England captain Kevin Pietersen got himself into trouble last season when he was charged and fined for criticising an umpire´s decision while wearing a microphone on-field. Explosive hitters Reigning champions Perth Scorchers are hot favourites for their fourth crown, while Melbourne Stars, featuring polarising batsman Pietersen, are chasing their elusive first title after several years of near misses. The Scorchers have maintained the bulk of their squad from last year´s triumphant season and are likely to again contend for glory with coach Justin Langer again at the helm and English allrounder David Willey as their overseas import. Crowd during a match Brisbane Heat, who finished second in the regular competition last season, possesses two explosive hitters with local Chris Lynn, who leads the BBL´s six tally with 94, and retired New Zealand star Brendon McCullum. The Sydney Sixers, crushed by the Scorchers in last season´s final, again have big-hitting Englishman Jason Roy as their overseas player along with Test bowlers Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon. Skipper Aaron Finch leads the under-performing Melbourne Renegades, who have boom-hitting West Indian Kieran Pollard on their books. Pollard will miss the first seven games of the tournament due to international commitments and Afghanistan off-spinner Mohammad Nabi fills his place. Sydney Thunder have former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson backing up for another season aged 36, while overseas import Jos Buttler has the three quickest ODI centuries for England, including a 46-ball effort against Pakistan. The Thunder only have Buttler´s services for the opening six matches when he leaves for international duty. The other two franchises in the eight-team BBL are the Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers. The final takes place on February 4.
  19. The New Year is almost here and for some or the other reason, people across the globe are more than happy to bid goodbye to 2017. The year hasn't exactly proved to be the best one for a variety of reasons and of course, hopes for 2018 are high. And in case you are a superhero movie fan, we can assure you that 2018 might as well be your favorite year. Recently, the number of superhero movies hitting the theatres has increased manifold and 2018 would not be an exception. In fact, the year is going to be all about capes and some stunning action sequences. via GIPHY Since keeping up with the endless number of films can be hard, we suggest you keep your calendars open to mark the dates. Here's a handy guide to all of the superhero films releasing next year: 1. Black Panther- February 16, 2018 © Marvel Black Panther had already made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 'Captain America: Civil War', where T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) was coming to terms with the decision of becoming king after the death of his father. And now, in the upcoming movie we'd get to see the challenges and threats that T'Challa faces as the new leader, specifically from Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) — a Wakandan outcast who wants to overthrow T'Challa. 2. New Mutants- April 13, 2018 © 20th Century Fox It isn't exactly as vivid and flashy like a superhero movie. In fact, it's more horror than superhero. The movie is based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name and is intended to be the eleventh installment in the X-Men film series. The Marvel's comics were about a younger generation of 'gifted' students coming together at a school for the first time while the film is set largely in an eerie asylum where young mutants are kept in cells and observed for study. 3. Avengers: Infinity War- May 4, 2018 © Marvel Easily the biggest of all superhero movies of 2018, Infinity War will continue after the events of 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', and 'Captain America: Civil War'. The Avengers are still torn apart from the events of Civil War, but they must join their forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to defeat the powerful Thanos before he brings the universe to an end. 4. Deadpool 2- June 1, 2018 The untitled sequel movie has been given a release date but weirdly no other information has come to light yet. And the absolutely absurd teaser and video description did not help us either. Here's what 20th Century Fox gave us in the name of the plot of the film: “After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry's hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World's Best Lover.” 5. The Incredibles 2- June 1, 2018 © Pixar If you say that the kid inside you didn't squeal on seeing the teaser of 'The Incredibles 2', you are lying. Although by next year, it'd be 14 years since the first part was released, what's important is that we finally have a second installment. In an interview, John Lasseter, Pixar's chief creative officer said that the film will begin “a minute” after the events of the first film that is when The Incredibles encountered a villain called The Underminer. “It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece,” he said. “You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes? Well that's where start this movie.” 6. Ant-Man and The Wasp- July 6, 2018 © Marvel Set after the events of 'Captain America: Civil War', the movie would revolve around Scott Lang trying to balance his life as a father and being Ant-Man. He is soon presented with a new mission requiring him to team up with Hope Van Dyne as the Wasp. A small video showing the movie in production was released by Marvel: 7. Venom- October 5, 2018 With no poster or teasers, Venom is still a mystery for us. But we do know it is coming out in October next year. The movie will have Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock, a photographer who becomes infected by an alien lifeform and turns into a half-human, half-alien Villain-Venom who he sees Spider-Man as his enemy. 8. X Men: Dark Phoenix- November 2, 2018 © 20th Century Fox Jean Grey was seen struggling with some dark powers at the end of Apocalypse, and now those will arrive full throttle and transform her into the Dark Phoenix, while the X-men would go to any lengths to save her, even if it breaks them apart. 9. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse- December 21, 2018 For all the animation fans out there, you are in for a treat as Sony Pictures has got your back with an animated film featuring your favorite Spidey. But the film would feature Miles Morales, rather than Peter Parker. Miles Morales is another popular version of the character and just like Peter, he too was bitten by a radioactive spider and developed superpowers, and became Spiderman. 10. Aquaman- December 21, 2018 Last but definitely not the least. Jason Momoa playing Aquaman, the superhero with the ability to harness the power of the ocean is just what we need. © DC Comics Arthur Curry (Jason) learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis and must take steps in the direction of leading his people and to come out as a hero. As of now, these are the only superhero movies with confirmed release dates. But who'd say no to more? Definitely not us.
  20. Manchester City set a new top-flight record of 15 consecutive wins as their relentless progress towards the Premier League title continued with a 4-0 romp at Swansea City on Wednesday. David Silva struck twice for Pep Guardiola?s side as they went past Arsenal?s 14-match winning sequence, although unlike the London club?s, City?s streak has been in a single season. Manchester United kept up a distant pursuit, although they made hard work of beating Bournemouth 1-0 at Old Trafford to remain 11 points adrift in second place. Romelu Lukaku?s ninth league goal of the season was all that separated the sides. Liverpool and Arsenal could only draw 0-0 with struggling West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United respectively, allowing Tottenham Hotspur to move into fourth spot behind Chelsea thanks top a 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion as Serge Aurier scoring his first goal for the club. City have 49 points to United?s 38 with champions Chelsea, who won at Huddersfield Town on Tuesday, on 35. Tottenham have 31, ahead of Liverpool on goal difference while Arsenal dropped to seventh with 30 points. It was an enjoyable night for managers returning to former clubs as Sam Allardyce watched his Everton side win 1-0 at Newcastle United and Claude Puel?s Leicester City triumphed 4-1 at Southampton, the club who sacked him at the end of last season.

  22. A photographer looks at the sky at night to see the annual Geminid meteor shower. Photo: AFP PARIS: A thin, waning moon should allow for uninterrupted views Wednesday night of the annual Geminid shooting star show, set to be "spectacular" this year, astronomers say. At its height, the meteor shower should yield a shooting star every minute, offering plenty of opportunity for wish-making, they said. Peaking on Wednesday night, it will be "particularly rich in bright meteors, or fireballs," the Irish Astronomical Association (IAA) said. "There will be no moonlight to interfere so observing prospects this year are very good." Meteors, or shooting stars, are produced when small particles from space enter the Earth?s atmosphere at high speed, burn up, and streak across the sky. The Geminid particles, so called because they appear from an Earthly perspective to be streaming out of the Gemini constellation, actually come from a mysterious space rock, about five kilometres (three miles) in diameter, called Phaethon. "Phaethon?s nature is debated," said Bill Cooke of NASA?s Meteoroid Environment Office. "It?s either a near-Earth asteroid or an extinct comet, sometimes called a rock comet." Some astronomers say there may be more meteors this year because of Phaethon?s close approach to Earth. Three days after the shower, it will shave past at a distance of about 6.4 million miles (10.3 million kilometres), or 26 times the distance of Earth to the moon. Given its size and proximity, Phaethon is classified a "Potential Hazardous Asteroid ? not the closest to Earth but "quite close for such a big one!" according to the IAA. "Although there?s no risk of a collision this time, it could potentially come much closer in future, which is why astronomers around the globe will be studying it closely this time." An impact from a body of that size would be "catastrophic", causing tens or hundreds of millions of deaths, the IAA said. In the meantime, though, Phaethon provides a yearly, December meteor fix. The show can be observed from anywhere on Earth where the sky is clear and dark, though it is best viewed in the Northern Hemisphere. "You?ll need to be well away from cities and towns to escape the light pollution," the IAA said. "You don?t even need binoculars, just your own eyes. If coming out from a bright room, wait at least 10 minutes for your eyes to adapt to the dark outside."
  23. Synaptics has spread the word that a "major" smartphone manufacturer in the "top five" will unveil a phone using its Clear ID sensor at CES in January. The technology, called "Clear ID" delivers what the company calls "one-touch high-resolution scanning through the full cover glass." Synaptics on Tuesday the mass production of its Clear ID family of optical in-display fingerprint sensors, it claims that Clear ID is twice as fast as 3D facial recognition and requires only one touch to access a smartphone © Synaptics The firm announced that the new fingerprint sensor, the Clear ID FS9500, has gone into mass production and is specifically designed for smartphones. According to Synaptics, the sensor will even function properly with wet, dry, or even cold fingers. Though Synaptics is not the first company to develop this technology, however, the company claims to mass produce their product to compete with the big companies. Basically, manufacturers will no longer have to rely on physical buttons or spaces to embed fingerprint scanner. Currently, the main design challenge is to have the least amount of bezels and chins without compromising on other utilities. Hence the fingerprint scanner has been majorly shifted to the back by OEMs like LG and Samsung while Apple completely skipped Touch ID with the iPhone X. With the help of an under-screen display, the placement shall be a lot more convenient without intruding on other design aspects of the device. © Synaptics The release is more about the fact that a "top five OEM" is partnering with the company, than the technology itself. At present, it is not clear who Synaptics is referring to. Going to worldwide smartphone sales, the list includes Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Oppo, or Vivo. But if we look at it just from the American market, the list includes Apple, Samsung, LG, HTC and Motorola. Obviously, it's safe to rule out Apple here. "Consumers prefer fingerprint authentication on the front of the phone, and with the industry quickly shifting to bezel-free OLED infinity displays, the natural placement of the fingerprint sensor is in the display itself,” Kevin Barber, Synaptics's mobile division Senior Vice President and General Manager, noted in a statement.
  24. OTTAWA: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to meet Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau next week for talks on how to address the crisis over North Korea?s nuclear weapons program, an Ottawa source said on Monday. Canada and the United States are due to co-host a meeting of foreign ministers in Vancouver in January to discuss North Korea. North Korea has fired missiles over Japan as it pursues nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles in defiance of UN sanctions. Last week it said U.S. and South Korean military drills meant the outbreak of war was ?an established fact?. During a day trip to Ottawa on Dec. 19 Tillerson will also meet Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, said the source, who requested anonymity because the meetings have not yet been formally announced. A Canadian government source confirmed that Tillerson and Trudeau plan to meet but declined to give a precise date, saying scheduling issues still had to be worked out. The US embassy in Ottawa declined to comment. Freeland said last month that the Vancouver talks would show the unity of the international community in applying pressure on Pyongyang.
  25. A vehicle on a road in Murree. Photo: AFP/File ISLAMABAD: With Murree set to receive the first snowfall of the current winter season on Monday, local hoteliers foresee a large influx of tourists next week. The Pakistan Meteorological Department has forecast that snow will fall at the scenic hill station on Monday or Tuesday. Muhammad Luqman, the owner of a hotel on the Mall, said there was a likelihood of tourists, mostly residents of Islamabad, Rawalpindi and adjoining areas, thronging Murree, which is an hour?s drive, next week to enjoy snowfall, the current season's first. He said hotels had reported a surge in bookings, especially for the weekend. Another hotelier, Zaman Ahmad, also reported higher bookings in hotels located on Pindi Point, Kashmir Point, the Mall and Ayubia. He said the hill station attracted crowds of visitors whenever there's snowfall. The hotel owner said most of the visitors belonged to Islamabad, Rawalpindi and other plain areas. He said Murree?s adjoining areas like Galiyat, Bhurban, Ayubia and Nathiagali were also expected to see a large influx of visitors next week due to the snowfall. Heavy traffic jam in Murree due to snowfall Many heavy vehicles have stuck in snow resulting in traffic jams on Murree-Rawalpindi Main Road for many hours In light of the expected influx of tourists, the traffic police claim they've made special arrangements to ensure smooth flow of traffic in the region, especially on the Mall, while the administration insists it has prepared its machines to clear snow from the roads to facilitate motorists. Thousands of tourists, mostly domestic, head towards Murree and upwards during the winter season. Since the past couple of years, Islamabad Police have struggled to maintain the flow of traffic on the highway leading to Murree. The high influx of tourists often leads to closure of entry to the Murree Expressway from Islamabad and also forces tourists to remain on the road in traffic gridlocks for hours. However, many tourists fear overcharging by hotels, especially those located on the Mall, GPO Chowk and Kuldanna Road after the snowfall and demand the district administration's intervention for control of rent.
