Three persons were injured in the attack that took place shortly after 9am in Dispichari area close to a compound housing foreign contractors, reported Tolo News. Afghan media quoted sources that claimed the attack was targetted at a private security firm?s vehicle. No group has as yet claimed responsibility for the incident.
  2. Syrians from the rebel-held eastern Ghouta region, just outside Damascus, walk through a regime-controlled corridor in Hamuria on March 16. Photo: AFP Air strikes killed dozens of civilians in Eastern Ghouta on Friday and forced thousands more to flee, as Syrian troops pressed their blistering assault on the last rebel stronghold near Damascus. The latest deaths brought the toll for the nearly month-old offensive to 1,364, with world powers still unable to stop one of the devastating conflict´s worst crises. Syria´s war enters its eighth year with another deadly assault also unfolding in the north, where Turkish-led forces pressed an operation to seize the Kurdish-majority region of Afrin. The operation has sent thousands onto the roads, with bombing of the city of Afrin on Friday killing 43 civilians, a third of them killed in a deadly strike on a hospital. On the edge of Ghouta, a sprawling semi-rural area within mortar range of central Damascus, more than 2,400 civilians streamed out of destroyed towns, carrying scant belongings in bags and bundles. Crowds crammed into a government centre on the edge of Eastern Ghouta on Friday, unsure what the next step would be after walking straight into the arms of the forces that have relentlessly pounded their homes for weeks. Exodus "We were afraid of leaving -- they had told us the army would arrest us," said 35-year-old Abu Khaled, who used to run a retail clothing shop in Ghouta. "We reached the army and didn´t find that, but now we´re basically living in a camp," he told AFP. Syria´s envoy to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari said 40,000 people fled Ghouta on Thursday, and the sudden exodus appeared to have caught the government flat-footed. Long lines formed outside the public bathrooms, and displaced families complained of a lack of access to water or mattresses. The Syrian army in a message broadcast on state television urged all residents to use "corridors" it had established to leave the enclave, saying it had recaptured 70 percent of rebel territory. The ground offensive pressed by Syrian troops and allied militia has splintered Eastern Ghouta into three pockets, each held by a different faction. Those three Islamist groups said Friday they would be willing to negotiate directly with Russia on a ceasefire for Ghouta, but did not mention talks with the Syrian government. Their statement came hours after UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura said talks were ongoing between Russia and one of the groups, Jaish al-Islam. That negotiations track had already produced six days of calm for Ghouta´s largest town of Douma, he said. Douma has also seen deliveries of food, and hundreds of civilians have been bussed out as part of medical evacuations. Hospital bombed The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 96 civilians were killed in Russian and regime air strikes on the southwestern Ghouta pocket on Friday. The Observatory says it determines whose planes carry out raids according to type, location, flight patterns and munitions used, but Russia on Friday denied its jets were taking part in the Ghouta operation. The heaviest of Friday´s raids were on Kafr Batna, where at least 70 civilians died and where the Observatory said incendiary weapons were used. A reporter in the town contributing to AFP saw eight charred bodies in the streets and said wounded people were left in the roads as rescue centres had been put out of service by bombing. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has in recent months recovered swathes of territory lost at the beginning of the conflict and Ghouta was one of his key remaining targets. An exodus of similar proportions was under way hundreds of kilometres (miles) to the north in the city of Afrin, where Kurdish forces have been nearly encircled by Turkish troops. The Observatory said Thursday more than 30,000 people had fled the city in 24 hours, and another 15,000 escaped on Friday, fearing a siege. The monitor said a Turkish strike on Friday hit Afrin´s hospital, killing 16 civilians, including two pregnant women. "There was bombing on the city during the day that got close to the hospital, but this evening it was directly hit," Serwan Bery, co-chair of the Kurdish Red Crescent, told AFP. "It was the only functioning hospital in Afrin city," he said. The deadly strike brought to 43 the number of civilians killed in the town on Friday, the Observatory said. Turkey´s military denied hitting the hospital, saying on Twitter that its operation in Afrin "is carried out in such a way as to not cause any harm to civilians." The UN said it was worried the forces staying inside were not allowing civilians to flee, as that would leave them more exposed to Turkey´s superior firepower. Ravina Shamdasani, spokesperson for the UN´s Rights Office decried "reports that civilians are being prevented from leaving Afrin city by Kurdish forces ... (and) are being held to be used as human shields."
  3. Israeli security forces and forensics inspect the destroyed vehicle that was used by a Palestinian assailant in a car ramming attack targeting a group of Israeli soldiers near Mevo Dotan in the north of the occupied West Bank, March 16, 2018. AFP/Jack Guez JERUSALEM: Two Israelis soldiers were killed and two others injured when a Palestinian rammed a car into a group of troops in the occupied West Bank on Friday, the Israeli army said. The four were struck when the car ploughed into their group close to the settlement of Mevo Dotan near Jenin in the northern West Bank. The army said the two killed were an officer and a soldier, without naming them. One of the two injured was in severe condition, the army statement added, saying their families had been informed. The attacker was arrested and taken to the hospital, the army said. He was named as Alaa Kabha, born in 1991, with the army saying it had immediately rescinded the permits of 67 of his family members to work in Israel. Tensions were high on Friday after Palestinian movement Hamas called for a day of rage to commemorate 100 days since US President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Palestinians also see the city as their capital and Trump's recognition broke with decades of US policy that the status of the city would be negotiated between the parties. At least 31 Palestinians and four Israelis have been killed since Trump's announcement, which set off major protests. Hamas praised the attack but did not claim responsibility for it. "This revolution against the Trump decision and the occupation is not a wave of anger but an ongoing action until our people are totally free," said Hamas, which is considered a terrorist organisation by Israel, the United States, and others. Palestinian attacks are often attributed to frustration with Israel's 50-year occupation. Israel accuses Palestinian officials of encouraging such attacks through incitement and refusing to accept Israel's existence. The events come ahead of what could be a tense few months, with a number of significant dates that may spark tension. Uppermost among them is the inauguration of the new American embassy in Jerusalem on May 14, coinciding with the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding. President Trump has said he will attend if he can. On May 15, Palestinians recognise the Nakba, or catastrophe, commemorating the fleeing of hundreds of thousands of people in the 1948 war that led to the creation of Israel. Around 400,000 Israelis live in West Bank settlements that are considered illegal by the United Nations. Around 2.6 million Palestinians live in the same area.
  4. SHARJAH: At least two Big Bash League (BBL) teams have shown interest in signing Lahore Qalandars? fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi for the tournament?s next season, sources informed Geo News on Friday. Afridi won appreciation from fans, fellow cricketers and cricket experts after delivering a fiery spell of five wickets for just four runs in the Pakistan Super League?s ongoing season. Up till now, he has picked seven wickets in the tournament on the economy of 8.32. Sources have informed that the 17-year-old is in negotiations with both the BBL franchises and will announce his final decision on the offers in coming days. Afridi also holds an offer from Marylebone Cricket Club, and will be representing Dhaka Dynamite in the coming season of Bangladesh Premier League.
  5. You may be accustomed to searching things on the internet and often you are caught off guard by the predictive search. Whether you're on Google or on any other platform, predictive search helps you reducing search times and can also result in things you are never meant to search. © BCCL Having said that, you can type two words in Facebook's search bar and you will be prompted with a few predictive options that you may click on by mistake. Remember, if you do type these words in the search bar while you're in office or school, you can get into trouble. When you type the phrase “video of” into the search bar, you will be greeted with some sexual or violent autocomplete suggestions. Of course, if you accidentally click on these search results, it won't exactly show you the content that matched the search suggestion. Here are a few examples: If you type just "video of" into you facebook search bar some very disturbing and horrible things come up..... what the heck @facebook ?! its seriously disgusting — Annelise Jr. (@annelisejr) March 16, 2018 Very normal predictions when you type "video of" in Facebook's search bar pic.twitter.com/6jm0j696O0 — Eric Morrow ð§ (@morroweric) March 16, 2018 Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh pic.twitter.com/tGuHvMLKzL — Mike Murphy (@mcwm) March 16, 2018 Facebook mostly shows results to find other Facebook users or what everyone is talking about. For example, if you type “Black Panther” or “Modi”, it will pop up what your friends or the pages you like are sharing on the platform. Today, Facebook is facing a similar conundrum as Google due to the auto prediction it implements in the search bar. Google has been spending years to clean up search results that are racist, sexist, anti-Semitic in nature. For example, if you typed in “Are Jews” into Google's search bar, it would automatically suggest the question, “Are Jews evil?” © BCCL Since then, Google allows users to report objectionable and offensive search results and now has a autocomplete policy in place that prevents objectionable suggestions to pop up. Will Facebook implement a similar policy? We will know in time. Source: Mashable
  6. Two women were arrested Thursday for breaking into an Islamic centre in Arizona and filming themselves making anti-Islamic remarks, police said. Tahnee Gonzales and Elizabeth Dauenhauer were arrested for third-degree burglary "after the investigation revealed they entered onto the property of the Tempe Islamic Center and subsequently removed various items," local police spokesperson Ron Elcock said in a statement. "Based on the details of the crime an enhancement of hate crime will be considered for sentencing," he said. The women posted several videos on Facebook showing them entering the centre, making insulting remarks about Muslims and encouraging their children to repeat them. Ahmad Al-Akoum, the center´s director of inter-faith relations and one of its imams, told AFP that the incident took place the morning of March 4, when no one else was present. A local journalist saw the videos and alerted the mosque, whose leaders then checked their surveillance footage and saw the women taking copies of the Holy Quran as well as leaflets, and tearing up documents affixed to a bulletin board. Mosque officials then contacted police. "They were teaching their children to be hateful, it was very disturbing," Al-Akoum said of the women. He said that his center and others around Phoenix have regularly been subjected to harassment "for a long time, almost since 2001," referring to the year of the September 11 attacks. But things have gotten worst since Donald Trump -- who made trying to keep travelers from certain Muslim-majority countries out of the US a central part of his agenda -- took office last year.
  7. Activists install 7000 shoes on the lawn in front of the US Capitol on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, March 13, 2018. REUTERS/Eric Thayer WASHINGTON: Tom Mauser came to the US Capitol on Tuesday dressed in grey Vans sneakers, the same ones his 15-year-old son Daniel wore when he was killed by two gunmen at Colorado?s Columbine High School in 1999 along with a dozen other people. Mauser was one of a handful of gun control activists and volunteers who braved a frigid March morning to lay out about 7,000 pairs of shoes on the US Capitol lawn as a makeshift memorial to American children killed by gun violence. Their aim, like the thousands of students across the country who plan to walk out of their classrooms for 17 minutes on Wednesday morning, was to put more pressure on state and federal lawmakers to tighten rules on gun ownership. ?There?s nobody in those shoes, it?s like the emptiness in our hearts from gun violence,? said Mauser, 66, of Littleton, Colorado. The memorial, organized by Avaaz, a US-based civic organization, and the National School Walkout, organized by the activists behind the Women?s March in Washington, are part of a grass-roots movement that grew out of the killing of 17 students and staff at a Florida high school a month ago. ?I think we?re in the middle of a cultural change in the United States. The majority of Americans want a change in gun laws, and a majority of gun owners want change,? said Emma Ruby-Sachs, deputy director of Avaaz. Many of the proposals favoured by gun control advocates, including a ban on assault-style weapons and the closing of loopholes on requiring background checks before gun purchases, are fiercely opposed by the National Rifle Association and its supporters. The 7,000 pairs of donated footwear, arranged side by side in a trapezoid shape outside the Capitol, represent every person younger than 18 who has been killed by a firearm since the 2012 massacre at the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Actresses Susan Sarandon and Bette Midler, and talk show host Chelsea Handler were among shoe donors. National walkout About 1,300 people below the age of 18 are killed by gunfire in the United States every year, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. On Wednesday, students will again take centre stage in the political theatre over guns that has gripped the country since the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The national walkout will last 17 minutes, beginning at 10 a.m. local time, to commemorate the 17 victims who lost their lives in the Florida massacre. It was the deadliest school shooting since 20 children and six adults were shot dead at Sandy Hook more than five years ago. The walkout has won the support of many school districts and civil rights organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union. More than 2,500 walkouts are scheduled across the country, according to the organizer?s website, including at Marjory Stoneman and Columbine high schools. Mauser, a retired Colorado Department of Transportation employee, has attended dozens of gun-control demonstrations since the Columbine massacre. But he has grown cautiously optimistic about the prospects for change because of the new student involvement. ?These kids, it?s their lives. They?re not going to be distracted about Russia, about other things,? Mauser said. The shoe memorial is reminiscent of a monument on the Danube River near the Hungarian Parliament in Budapest commemorating thousands of people, including Jews, killed by fascists in the 1940s. Many Canadian cities have marked the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women on Dec. 6 with similar ?shoe memorials.?
  8. Police and FBI officers guard the scene of an explosion in Austin, Texas, US, March 17, 2018. REUTERS/Sergio Flores AUSTIN: Two package bombs exploded miles apart in the capital city of Texas on Monday, killing a teenager and injuring two women in attacks that Austin police linked to a deadly blast earlier this month. In all three cases, a package was left at the front of a residence and exploded after an unsuspecting victim picked it up or tried to open it, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters. ?We are looking at these incidents as being related,? Manley said, adding that federal investigators were among those looking for suspects and a possible motive for the attacks. All the victims, including a 39-year-old man who died in the March 2 blast, were either African-American or Hispanic, Manley said. ?We cannot rule out that hate crime is at the core of this but we are not saying that that is the cause,? Manley told a news conference. He warned residents to watch out for boxes left outside their homes and to report anything suspicious to police. The attacks took place as Austin hosted thousands of out-of-town visitors for its annual South by Southwest festival. London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave the keynote address on Monday afternoon. The Monday blasts were in homes about 6 kilometres (4 miles) apart in East Austin, a predominantly Hispanic and minority area undergoing gentrification after a surge in the city?s population. The 17-year-old found a package outside his house in a tree-lined, mixed race residential area and brought it into the kitchen, where it exploded, Manley said. A woman at the home, in her 40s, was taken to an area hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening. The victim of the second Monday blast was a woman in a wheelchair who had been watering her grass, said Brandon Rendon, a 27-year-old contractor who lives four houses down from her home in the mainly working-class Hispanic Montopolis area. ?It looked like small terrorism,? said Rendon, who heard a loud bang and was among locals who poured into the street to see what happened. The March 2 incident, initially investigated as a suspicious death but now considered a homicide, occurred at a house in the city?s wealthy Harris Ridge neighbourhood, about 12 miles northeast of downtown. Police said they had no indication it was related to terrorism.
  9. Waterloo Street, Glodwick, Oldham. Image courtesy: Manchester Evening News via Dominic Salter OLDHAM: British police have formally charged two men over the murder of a youth that took place here on a street earlier on Friday, it said in a statement issued Tuesday. "Two men have been charged with murder after a man was stabbed to death in Oldham," Greater Manchester Police wrote. "Mohammed Jama (01/01/1998) of Ashley Street, Oldham, and Musa Jama (01/01/1996) of Ashley Street, Oldham, have been charged with murder and the possession of a bladed weapon." Mohammed Nabeel Hassan, the deceased, was discovered by passersby on Waterloo Street "at around 3.20pm" after "reports that a man was unconscious and not breathing on Waterloo Street". It is believed that Hassan was walking home after prayers at the nearby Jalalabad Jama Masjid (Mosque) when he was attacked with a knife, Daily Mail reported. He was found "with a single stab wound". Hassan is survived by a wife, whom he had recently wed, as per a family friend. At the time, Chief Superintendent Neil Evans ? the territorial commander for GMP?s Oldham borough ? had said: ?Mohammed Nabeel?s family has to deal with the most tragic news, but have been extremely calm and have supported us with our investigation, which I would like to thank them for. ?[?] Speculation about what has happened is not helpful to the investigation nor to the family who are grieving the loss of their son, brother and friend. ?Someone knows exactly what happened and who is responsible for bringing a premature end to Mohammed Nabeel?s life," according to Manchester Evening News. Both suspects are scheduled for an appearance in the Manchester Magistrates? Court later on Tuesday.
  10. PORT ELIZABETH: South African fast bowler Kagiso Rabada was on Monday banned for the two remaining Tests against Australia ? and admitted that he would have to change how he celebrates wickets. Rabada was found guilty of "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact" with Australian captain Steve Smith after dismissing Smith in the first innings. He was fined 50 percent of his match fee and issued three demerit points after a disciplinary hearing following his denial of the charge. That took his total of points after three previous offences to eight and triggered an automatic two-Test ban. "It's going to have to stop," he said. "I'm letting the team down and letting myself down." He was speaking after a man of the match performance in South Africa's six-wicket win in the second Test against Australia, but before the verdict from the International Cricket Council was announced. Cricket South Africa (CSA) immediately announced they had 48 hours to appeal the decision and were seeking legal opinion. CSA said Rabada would remain suspended unless a judicial commissioner was appointed early and allowed him to play pending a final decision. Rabada accepted a second charge after a send-off of David Warner in the second innings and received a further fine of 15 percent of his match fee and an additional demerit point. Match referee Jeff Crowe said: "I found that there was contact between Rabada and Smith, and in my judgement the contact by Rabada was inappropriate, and deliberate. He had the opportunity to avoid the contact, and I could not see any evidence to support the argument that the contact was accidental. "It is also disappointing that this has happened the day after the pre-match meeting I had with both teams, where the importance of respect for opponents was highlighted." Rabada said he would need to avoid getting into close proximity with opponents. "I won't change the way I express myself but I will get far away from the batter," he said. Rabada said he had contested the charge on the Smith incident because he believed he had not made deliberate contact with Smith´s shoulder, which his captain Faf du Plessis described as "a shirt flick." "If I knew I did it deliberately I wouldn´t have contested it," said Rabada. "Honestly, I didn´t feel contact in that moment. I was just so pumped up." Rabada said it was different from the case against him when he gave Ben Stokes of England a send-off in a Test at Lord's last year, which resulted in a single demerit point which added to a previous three points ruled him out of the next Test. "With the Stokes incident I didn't contest it because I knew I did it," he said. He described his emotions as "bittersweet" after one of his best Test matches. Anticipating the ban, he said: "I would have loved to be playing in the next game, especially coming off a performance like that. I felt really good in this Test match. "If I do get banned I will have to see it as a big learning curve and not repeat the same mistake because I've repeated the same mistake in the eyes of the umpires. I´m not happy about it." The ICC also announced a 20 percent fine and one demerit point for Australia's Mitchell Marsh, who accepted a charge of using "obscene or offensive language" after being dismissed by Rabada on Monday.

Curious Emperors have been captured on film at the Auster Rookery near Australia's Mawson research station by expeditioner ð· Eddie Gault pic.twitter.com/MYle5Fshc7 — Antarctic Division (@AusAntarctic) March 8, 2018 So basically, the whole story behind this is that Eddie Gault, a researcher with the Australian Antarctic Division in Antarctica, was working when he decided to put his camera down on some ice for the penguins to inspect. Two curious emperor penguins quickly waddled over to it. The two penguins then caught themselves on the camera, and it looks like they were both shocked and delighted to see themselves. And, as for us, we're just appreciating this hilarious moment caught on film. I don't think any other viral video can top this, we've all peaked, let's just go home now.

FILE PHOTO: Congolese children, displaced by fighting in North Kivu, play at the child friendly space (CFS) within Mugunga III camp for the internally displaced people near Goma, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, August 7, 2013. REUTERS1 GENEVA: More than 2 million children in the Democratic Republic of Congo are estimated to be at risk of dying from severe acute malnutrition if they do not get the aid they need, the United Nations warned on Friday. UN humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock will meet donors next week in the country where conditions in many areas are worsening, UN spokesman Jens Laerke told a Geneva briefing. ?We have a great responsibility in the DRC...now is the time to stay the course,? Laerke said. The 2 million children at risk of starvation include some 300,000 children in the Kasai region, Bettina Luescher of the UN?s World Food Programme (WFP) said.
  13. Mohammad Shahzad. -File photo HARARE: Big-hitting Afghanistan wicketkeeper Mohammad Shahzad has been suspended for two matches, just three months after returning from a one-year doping ban, the ICC announced on Wednesday. The 30-year-old slammed his bat against the pitch next to the main wicket after being dismissed for 24 in Afghanistan's two-run defeat by Zimbabwe in World Cup qualifying on Tuesday. Shahzad reached four demerit points over the last two years after being found guilty of "abuse of cricket equipment or clothing, ground equipment or fixtures and fittings" by cricket's governing body. The opening batsman will now miss Afghanistan's next two Group B matches against Hong Kong on Thursday and Nepal on Saturday. It is a big blow for the Rashid Khan-led side, who were expected to qualify for next year's tournament in England and Wales, but now look set to miss out after consecutive losses to Scotland and hosts Zimbabwe. Shahzad only returned to action last December after serving a ban for taking a weight-loss product. Teenage leg-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman was fined 50 percent of his match fee and given three demerit points for throwing the ball "in a dangerous manner" towards Zimbabwe batsman Brendan Taylorn in Tuesday´s game. The 16-year-old contested the charge, but was found guilty on Wednesday morning. Wicketkeeper Taylor, who made a crucial 89 in Zimbabwe's total of 196, was also fined 15 percent of his match fee for dissent after complaining about an lbw appeal that wasn´t given late on in the tense encounter. Meanwhile, Hong Kong batsman Nizakat Khan was fined and handed three demerit points for barging into Scotland bowler Alasdair Evans during his side's four-wicket defeat.
  14. Are you one of those people who shout on their phone “Reaching in 5 minutes”, when you are still taking a shower? If you are the 'late-lateef' of your group, here's how you can turn the tables around! You can now invite everyone for a trip to Jaipur, take all the sweet time in the world to get ready or do whatever before leaving home; and we bet you will still reach way before anyone else does, unless they read this story before you do. Thanks to the Ministry of Railways and their semi-high speed train, the distance between Jaipur and Delhi will soon be reduced to just 90 minutes. Anything or anyone else that can reach faster than this train now, will probably be your food delivery guy. © pexels Reportedly, the ministry is in talks to introduce a train between Delhi and Jaipur that will run at a speed of 200 km per hour. The details of this plan have been, in fact, shared with North Western Railways too. Currently, the rail distance between Jaipur and Delhi is approximately 309 kms and at a speed of 80 to 95 kms/ hour, we can reach our destination within 5 to 7 hours, depending on the number of stops in between. On any given weekday, traveling from Delhi to Gurugram can take up half of your day, with you stuck on the roads for more than 2 and sometimes 3 hours. Imagine, once this train service starts, traveling to Jaipur will be faster than commuting to Gurugram. If this deal goes well, it will take us only 90 minutes to reach. Which means you can easily leave in the morning, gorge on all the delicacies, indulge in some sightseeing and come back to the office and just say that you were stuck in traffic, because you will reach faster than you usually do anyway. Jokes apart, in a report in Times Of India, a senior officer of NWR said, “They have asked us to share the pattern of operation between two stations, pattern of passenger's load, pattern of freight train, their speed and length, feature of the tracks, double or single, infrastructure of the track including bridges, platforms, signaling etc and number of level crossings between Jaipur and Delhi.” © pexels The officer further added, “We are compiling the details which would be sent to them in the next 10 days.” Tarun Jain, chief public relations officer, NWR said, “Some details have been sought from us. Yes, it is a part of rail ministry's initiative to introduce semi-high speed train. A company FS-Italferr will do a feasibility study.” An Italy-based railway engineering company FS-Italferr has been appointed through an MoU to do a feasibility study for the project. Given that an Italian company is in charge, we hope they don't make the train in the shape of the iconic hand gesture they make while appreciating food.
  15. Former finance minister Ishaq Dar is accused of amassing assets beyond his known sources of income. Photo: Geo News file ISLAMABAD: Two accused in the Ishaq Dar assets case have petitioned against indictment on March 12. The accountability court hearing the assets accumulation case against former finance minister Dar during the previous hearing on March 5, had ordered to indict the other accused in the case on March 12. The legal counsel of the accused, Naeem Mehmood and Mansoor Rizvi, argued that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had provided their clients with a 700-page long reference, the pages of which are unclear. According to the lawyer, 70 of the 700 pages in the reference are in foreign languages. The defendants prayed to the court that they could not be indicted until the provision of clear documents along with their translations. The accountability court, hearing the petition, issued a notice to NAB to submit its response. The petition will now be heard on March 12. The case Dar, a close aide of Pakistan Muslim League-N chief Nawaz Sharif, is accused of possessing assets disproportionate to his declared sources of income. NAB filed an interim reference against Dar in September last year in light of the Supreme Court's July 28, 2017, verdict in the Panama Papers case. The supplementary reference is based on seven volumes and includes the account details of the accused persons, with transactions amounting to $4.06 million, according to NAB's Special Prosecutor Imran Shafiq.
  16. Every cricket playing nation has been following a simple protocol of hosting domestic tournaments in a bid to unearth new talent. Similarly, India, too, counts on their domestic tournaments like Ranji Trophy, Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy to nurture budding cricketers who can eventually make a difference on the international stage. But, while the domestic tournaments serve as a great platform for upcoming stars to prove their mettle and secure a call-up for the senior team, it also helps many players to sustain their livelihoods. And, for someone like the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), you'd expect the richest cricket board in the world to be on their toes in a bid to ensure the domestic cricketers are taken care of. However, contrary to popular perception, the cash-rich BCCI has failed to pay the match fee to over 500 domestic players in the past two years. While most players have received part of their payment from the state authorities, none have been reimbursed by the Indian cricket board, who are supposed to pay the players from 10.6 percent of their total gross revenue. BCCL So, how on earth a board, that claims to provide best-available facilities to its cricketers on the back of an envious revenue, has failed to pay the domestic players? Well, the answer is as sad as the state of our domestic stars. It appears that the ongoing impasse between BCCI and the Committee of Administrators (CoA) has cut a sorry figure for the domestic players. CoA, a Supreme Court-appointed panel, has blocked the funds of all defiant states for not implementing the RM Lodha committee's reforms. Almost 26 per cent of BCCI's annual revenue is reserved for players. Out of that, half is given to international cricketers and from the remaining sum, almost 3/4th is distributed among domestic players before the rest being allocated to women and junior cricketers. The BCCI is yet to hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) since the CoA took charge. And, the SC-appointed body is also reported to have been working on a so-called new payment plan which has further delayed the payments. “The players have not received money from the Board. I have been told players will receive their full payment once the AGM takes place. BCCL "But we don't know when the AGM will happen. As far as MCA is concerned we have paid our players what we owe them but we are yet to receive the Board's money,” Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) joint secretary Unmesh Khanvilkar told the Indian Express. A country that takes immense pride in its rich cricketing history, the ongoing issue has left players - especially the juniors across India who have no other source of income - in a bad state. The players have reportedly approached their respective states to take the matter up with the BCCI and CoA, but to no avail. On the other hand, the situation is even worse in Jammu and Kashmir whose cricketers have not received money from the state association as well. J&K's senior cricketer Parvez Rasool disclosed that his team has not received money from their home association and BCCI for the past three years. BCCL “We stay in five-star hotels across India for our domestic games. But the players have to spend their own money for food. We haven't even got daily allowance over the last three years. Forget the BCCI revenue money,” Rasool said. Back in August 2017, BCCI's acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary had revealed that the matter was taken up during meetings and it was decided to bypass the states in a bid to make the payments directly to players. When asked about the deadline, he claimed that the payment "should be made before the next season (2017-18) starts". Sadly, the season is now over, but the domestic cricketers remain unpaid. While the BCCI and CoA continue to remain at loggerheads, it appears that the players - who have been performing with bare minimum motivation - are eventually paying the price.

  20. The social media network decided to end the test and maintain one feed because people told the company in surveys they did not like the change-Reuters SAN FRANCISCO: Facebook Inc on Thursday put an end to a test of splitting its signature News Feed into two, an idea that roiled how people consumed news in the six countries where it occurred and added to concern about Facebook?s power. The test created two streaming series of posts. One was focused on photos and other updates from friends and family, and a second was called an?explore feed.? It was dedicated to material from Facebook pages that the user had liked, such as media outlets or sports teams. The social media network decided to end the test and maintain one feed because people told the company in surveys they did not like the change, Adam Mosseri, head of the News Feed at Facebook, said in a statement. ?People told us they were less satisfied with the posts they were seeing, and having two separate feeds didn?t actually help them connect more with friends and family,? Mosseri said. The test began in October and took place in Bolivia, Cambodia, Guatemala, Serbia, Slovakia and Sri Lanka. It quickly affected website traffic for smaller media outlets. Mosseri said the company had also?received feedback that we made it harder for people in the test countries to access important information, and that we didn?t communicate the test clearly.? He said Facebook would, in response, revise how it tests product changes although he did not say how. A Facebook representative did not immediately respond to a request for additional information. ?I hope Facebook will have more interest in what is happening inside its test countries,? Slovakian journalist Filip Struhárik, who had earlier criticized the test, said on Twitter on Thursday. Struhárik said news media websites are stronger now by not relying on Facebook for traffic, and he expects traffic from Facebook to fall further in the long term because of other changes to the News Feed that deemphasize media overall. In Cambodia, media outlets welcomed the news that Facebook had ended the test. Facebook has become an ever more important platform for political news in Cambodia after some media outlets critical of long-serving Prime Minister Hun Sen were forced to shut. ?Facebook users in Cambodia will be able to receive information again after traditional and independent media were forced to shut down,? said Nop Vy, editor in chief at the Voice of Democracy radio station, which suffered a huge, 30 to 40 percent, decline in viewers during the News Feed test. Hun Sen, who has ruled Cambodia for 33 years, has forced the closure of media outlets and jailed government critics amid a crackdown ahead of a general election set for July 29. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg has unveiled other changes to the Facebook News Feed in the past two months to fight sensationalism and prioritize posts from friends and family. The world?s largest social network and its competitors are under pressure from users and government authorities to make their services less addictive and to stem the spread of false news stories and hoaxes.
