  1. It's alarming how most men aren't aware of the importance of conditioning their hair. A shampoo is indispensable, yes, but all that does is clean up the hair. What about the rest of the procedure? While shampoo opens up the hair cuticle, it's the job of a conditioner to seal the nutrients inside, while keeping pollutants out. To understand it better, imagine that each hair strand made up of scales (almost like a fish). When the hair gets damaged, the scales stand up, thereby making your hair look dull. A conditioner smoothens up the scales while strengthening the hair shaft, preventing breakage, split ends, and even hair loss. So, for healthy and shiny hair, using a conditioner is a must. Here is a list of the best budget conditioners available in the market right now. All of them are under INR 199. 1.

  3. KARACHI: A prisoner held in custody inside the city's Landhi Jail passed away Thursday night, police said, citing his drug issues. According to the police, the deceased was addicted to drugs and, consequently, the withdrawal exacerbated his condition, following which they decided to move him to a hospital. However, the prisoner expired on way to the hospital, police stated. On the other hand, the prisoner's brother alleged that it was police brutality that killed the prisoner. He claimed his brother was beaten up by the authorities, leading to his death. The deceased's brother then went on to appeal to the Chief Minister of Sindh Murad Ali Shah, as well as Governor Sindh Muhammad Zubair and other top officials, to take notice of the event.
  4. Pakistan?s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) improved by five points from 28 to 32 out of 100 in 2017. Photo: Transparency International KARACHI: A significant reduction in corruption has been observed each time the Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz (PML-N) formed a government in Pakistan, according to statistics released by Transparency International. A recent report, based on statistics collected from the World Bank, African Development Bank, and International Economic Forum, rated 180 countries on a scale of one to 100 ? the latter being the highest score. According to the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) 2017, Pakistan?s CPI score remained 32 out of 100 - the same score the country received in 2016. Pakistan fared better than its neighbour Bangladesh, with the latter receiving 28 points on the index. India and China, however, were ranked higher with the scores 40 and 41 respectively. The statistics issued by Transparency International disclose that in 1996, Pakistan stood on the 71st rank among 85 countries. After the PML-N formed the government in 1996 a notable increase in the corruption index was observed. Within a span of two years, the index increased by a point to reach 2.7. The country?s rating hit its record low (2.1) in 2004 and 2005. It increased to 2.5 in 2008, dwindled to 2.4 and 2.3 in 2009 and 2010 respectively but swung back to 2.5 in 2011 through to 2012. In the years 2013, 2014, and 2015, Pakistan's score on the corruption index was 28, 29, and 30 respectively.

  6. Our face is the only part of our body that is always exposed. Plus, it is our identity. So, we need to make sure that it is cared for.

  8. Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir. Photo: Geo News file ISLAMABAD: Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir on Wednesday said that Pakistan?s ties with Russia have strengthened under the current government. Speaking on the security policy in the upper house of the parliament, Dastgir said that Pakistan and Russia have held joint military exercises to strengthen the bilateral relations. He also briefed the lawmakers about Pakistan?s improved security relations with Saudi Arabia and Turkey. The defence minister stated that ties with Pakistan?s neighbour China are the strongest that they?ve been. Dastagir, in response to belligerent statements from his counterpart in India, on Tuesday said Pakistan will pay India in its own coin in case of any misadventure from the country's eastern neighbour. India's defence minister, Nirmala Sitharaman, had accused Pakistan of an attack on an army base in Indian-occupied Kashmir which killed 10 people, including five Indian soldiers. Pakistan will pay India in its own coin for any misadventure: defence minister Pakistani forces are vigilant and fully capable of defending the country's territorial integrity, Dastagir warns India Any Indian aggression, strategic miscalculation, or misadventure regardless of its scale, mode, or location will not go unpunished and shall be met with an equal and proportionate response, the defence minister had said in a statement. Referring to India's usual practice of blaming Pakistan after every attack by Kashmiri freedom fighters, Dastagir had further said that instead of knee-jerk reactions and blaming Pakistan, India should answer for its state-sponsored espionage against Pakistan.

  10. KARACHI: As many as two eyewitnesses in Naqeebullah Mehsud murder case on Thursday were provided security under Witness Protection Act, sources within Sindh Police informed Geo News. Five policemen are deployed for the security of the witnesses of the high-profile murder case. Naqeebullah Mehsud, a 27-year-old native of Waziristan was among three others who were accused of being terrorists and killed on the orders of Malir SSP Rao Anwar, in what was later termed a fake encounter. Naqeebullah killing case: Sindh IGP gets 10 days to nab Rao Anwar SC directs intelligence agencies to provide complete support to Sindh Police for Anwar's arrest Following claims of innocence from Naqeebullah?s family, an inquiry committee was formed which cleared the 27-year-old of any wrongdoing. An FIR was registered against Anwar and others in the case. Since then, Rao Anwar has been in hiding. However, the law enforcement authority has not yet provided safe and secret residence, neither new identity cards. According to the Act, the police is bound to provide full-proof security to eyewitnesses till their arrival at the court. Sources have informed that despite clear-cut court orders there is no availability of funds for complete implementation on Witness Protection Act. Meanwhile, the sit-in at Islamabad by protestors demanding immediate arrest of former Malir SSP Rao Anwar has entered its ninth day today.
  11. Rawal Ratan Singh was defeated by Khilji, but just like he was stealing Khilji's thunder in terms of sartorial choices in every frame, Shahid Kapoor does hold his own in real life as well. Over the past year, we have seen Shahid emerge as one of the most fashionable actors in Bollywood. From perfecting suave red carpet looks to rocking edgy casual outfits, this young dad is one rad fashionista. On closer inspection, we found out that the reason Shahid's style game is on fleek of late is that he pays attention to the small, minute, inconspicuous details. His latest airport look in an all-black ensemble is the biggest proof. © Viral Bhayani Shahid anyway is the proud owner of a physique to die for, but this outfit is making him look even leaner and taller. There are a number of style lessons to be learnt from this outfit. Read on. © Viral Bhayani 1. The outfit is all-black. Let's focus on the fact that if you want to look slimmer (and thereby taller), embrace black. But please make sure you can carry it off without making it look like a monotonous outfit. © Viral Bhayani 2. Two words - Heeled sneakers. Just look at Shahid's shoes. Those are some impressive heels. Don't shy away from heels, boys. They are useful and look super cool. © Viral Bhayani 3. Drop crotch trousers. These trousers form a continuous, elongated silhouette that makes one look taller. The fact that they are of the same colour as his sweatshirt helps a lot. © Viral Bhayani 4. The super relaxed fit of his sweatshirt. Even though at times a relaxed sweatshirt may risk looking baggy, when you pick the right colour, material, and pair them up with the right trousers, they will make you look like a lean person who is wearing an oversized ensemble - thereby providing you with a very edgy, urban, high street style. © Viral Bhayani 5. The right accessories. Did you notice how Shahid is maintaining an extremely cohesive look by carefully choosing a cool black leather sling bag, a black wristwatch, and dark brown sunnies? You might think they are not as important, but that's where you're mistaken, my friend. Accessories do play an extremely important role in setting the overall tone for your outfit.

Photo: AFP PARIS: It lies hidden deep beneath Paris's bustling Gare de l'Est railway station, its sprawling subterranean rooms and sparse furniture pristinely preserved if a little dusty. Originally built a few years before World War II for luggage storage, the underground bunker was repurposed after war broke out. French railway historian Clive Lamming said its 1939 overhaul was to provide "a place to retreat in case of an air attack" so staff could keep the trains running east towards Germany. Leading this AFP reporter through a concrete airlock and heavy door to the shelter, he said: "The concern was gas." "We remembered World War I -- a perfectly airtight place was needed," he added. Originally built a few years before World War II for luggage storage, the underground bunker was repurposed after war broke out. Photo: AFP With its three-metre (10-foot) thick concrete ceiling, it was designed for about 70 people to be able to take refuge in the small rooms of the 120-square-metre (1,300-square-foot) shelter. But, in the end, the bunker never really saw any action -- Paris was largely spared from air attacks during WWII, and there was little danger of poison gas. After France´s defeat in 1940 and Nazi occupation, the bunker was requisitioned by the Germans and traces of their presence remain, including a sign that reads "Notausgang" (emergency exit). "In my opinion, it hasn´t been finished," said Lamming, as a high-speed TGV train loudly rumbled overhead. 'Sleeping Beauty' Today, few of the thousands of travellers passing through the busy central Paris station will likely have any inkling of the time capsule under their feet. Just a discreet trapdoor on the platform opens up to reveal a staircase leading down to the bunker, which is not publicly accessible except on certain occasions. Originally built a few years before World War II for luggage storage, the underground bunker was repurposed after war broke out. Photo: AFP "For 80 years, it has been ´Sleeping Beauty´," Lamming said. "Everything is in mint condition from 1939." Entering the machine room is like stepping back into the 1930s, with the old contraptions, dials, copper piping and Bakelite handles only in need of a good polish. The room also has two bicycles. If the power went out, ventilation would have been provided by batteries -- if they failed, anyone sheltering in the bunker was to hop on the bikes and pedal to circulate fresh air. Other rooms also feel frozen in time, like the telephone exchange with its tangle of wires, but most are more spartan, furnished with a few period tables and chairs where staff could have directed the train traffic above. The shelter was designed to host 72 workstations, and some yellowing documents remain. There is even a bed. Post-war, with its purpose, now passed, it gradually took on an almost mythic status among employees of SNCF, France´s national train operator. "The aim is to preserve it," especially as the shelters built in other stations at the time have all disappeared, said the SNCF branch in charge of stations. Chances to visit are rare as the bunker was not built for large crowds but it does open up for annual Heritage Days events.
  14. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson shakes hands with acting US Secretary of State Tom Shannon while delivering remarks to Department of State employees upon arrival at the Department of State in Washington, US, February 2, 2017. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/Files WASHINGTON: The US State Department?s third-ranking official, Tom Shannon, said on Thursday he was stepping down, the latest senior career diplomat to exit since President Donald Trump took office a year ago. Shannon, who serves as undersecretary of state for political affairs, is the most senior career diplomat at the State Department and has been a fixture among the nation?s diplomatic ranks during more than 34 years of service. In a letter to department staff, Shannon, 60, said he was resigning for personal reasons. ?My decision is personal, and driven by a desire to attend to my family, take stock of my life, and set a new direction for my remaining years,? Shannon wrote in a note to staff after informing US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday of his decision to retire. Shannon worked recently on some of the most complex and sensitive issues, including Iran?s compliance with the landmark nuclear deal and fraught relations with Russia. Shannon?s departure is part of a steady stream of senior career diplomats who have left since Trump became president. It will deprive the State Department of a seasoned veteran at a time when the United States is grappling with crises on several fronts, most notably North Korea?s nuclear threat. His calm demeanour, language skills and decades of experience made him a frequent choice for some of the thorniest assignments. Shannon this month represented the United States at the inauguration of Liberia?s new president, George Weah, the highest-ranking US official to visit the region after reported remarks by Trump that immigrants from Africa and Haiti come from ?shithole? countries. Shannon, who was ambassador to Brazil from 2005 to 2009 and served in posts in Cameroon, Gabon and Johannesburg, was tasked by former President Barack Obama in 2015 with improving acrimonious relations with Venezuela?s President Nicolas Maduro. He was seen as a stabilizing force after Trump and Tillerson took office with a promise to downsize the State Department and policies. He had to manage growing dissent among career diplomats over the new president?s policies that antagonized Muslim nations and long-time allies in Europe and in Mexico. The forcing out of many senior diplomats, the failure to nominate or to win Senate confirmation for officials to fill key agency roles, and a perception that Tillerson is inaccessible have eroded morale, according to current officials. The State Department?s Under Secretary of State for Public Affairs, Steve Goldstein, said Shannon?s departure was not related to low morale and called him ?an amazing man.? Tillerson in November said he was offended by claims that the State Department was being hollowed out under Trump, saying it was functioning well despite scathing criticism from former American diplomats including Nicholas Burns and Ryan Crocker. In a statement on Thursday, Tillerson congratulated Shannon on a distinguished career saying ?his time was well spent.? ?I particularly appreciate his depth of knowledge, the role he played during the transition ...and his contributions to our strategy process over the past year,? Tillerson said. In his note, Shannon said he had agreed to stay on until a successor had been named and to ensure a smooth transition.
  15. ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court will take up today several petitions by legislators disqualified for violating Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution. The larger bench which will take up the matter comprises Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed, Justice Umar Ata Bandial, Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Sajjad Ali Shah. Article 62(1)(f) reads: "A person shall not be qualified to be elected or chosen as a member of Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) unless-...he is sagacious, righteous and non-profligate, honest and ameen, there being no declaration to the contrary by a court of law." Though the over dozen petitioners are lawmakers disqualified for possessing fake degrees, the case has ramifications for former prime minister Nawaz Sharif as well as Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) senior leader Jahangir Tareen ? both were unseated from Parliament on violation of the said article. On December 15, last year, the Supreme Court had disqualified Tareen for failing to declare an offshore company and a foreign property in his election nomination papers. Imran Khan cleared, Jahangir Tareen disqualified by Supreme Court ECP denotifies Tareen from his constituency of NA-154 Lodhran-1 Similarly, then-prime minister Nawaz Sharif was disqualified on July 28, 2017 for concealing in his nomination papers the receivable income from his son's company in UAE. The court had summoned both Tareen and Nawaz today. On his way to the apex court, Tareen said an interpretation of the law is necessary, adding that disqualification durations over a dubious money trail and having a fake degree should be different. As the hearing went under way, the bench issued another notice to Nawaz to appear in court tomorrow. The court also declared senior advocate Muneer A Malik as amicus curiae (friend of the court), whereby he will assist the bench in the case. Hearing a separate matter on Friday, the chief justice had remarked that they have to decide the length of disqualification per Article (62)(1)(f) ? whether it will be a year, five years or lifelong. "We will begin hearing petitions on the subject from January 30," he remarked, adding that the larger bench?s decision on the matter will apply in the future. Nawaz Sharif tried to fool people, says SC in Panama review order The detailed verdict on dismissal of Sharif family's review petitions is spread over 23 pages Taking up a case of the article's interpretation earlier, then-chief justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali had observed how the disqualified on the basis of articles 62 and 63 could be forever as a person could reform his or herself and then be considered qualified as per the law.
  16. JATI UMRA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Nawaz Sharif chaired on Sunday a consultative party meeting here, during which matters pertaining to country?s political situation and others came under discussion. The session was also attended by Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif, National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq, federal minister Khawaja Saad Rafique. During the meeting, matters related to Senate elections and PML-N?s public contact campaign were also discussed. The meeting comes a day after the former prime minister addressed a party rally in Jaranwala, galvanising his supporters for the upcoming elections as he slammed his political opponents. Alluding to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Nawaz said his party will push its ?political opponents hard" in 2018, so they are not seen again. Nawaz galvanises party workers in Jaranwala rally, slams opposition 'Upcoming election will serve as referendum' The PML-N president claimed that he had told former US president Barrack Obama that drone attacks in Pakistan were not acceptable. "I told Obama that Pakistan is a sovereign state and drone attacks would not be tolerated, and do you not remember that during my tenure those attacks had stopped," he reminded the public of Jaranwala. Nawaz reminded the public that they elected him as the prime minister and their vote's sanctity should not be targeted.
  17. A man rides a bicycle ? carrying sacks of recyclables ? amid morning smog in Lahore, Pakistan, November 10, 2017. REUTERS/Mohsin Raza/Files ISLAMABAD: The plain areas of Punjab are set to experience intense fog, with low to zero visibility on the roads, Geo News reported citing the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD). Portions of major throughways were closed off for commuters Saturday night and Sunday morning. These comprise M2 motorway ? from Lahore to Pindi Bhattian ? and M4 motorway ? from Khanewal to Multan. Further, the National Highway ? from Lahore to Ahmedpur Sharqia and from Sialkot to Narowal ? were also closed due to heavy fog and low visibility. Officials of the motorway police have advised caution to drivers and commuters alike, urging people to stay indoors unless travelling is absolutely necessary. Rainfall expected On the other hand, the PMD forecasted rain in various areas of the country on Monday and Tuesday, saying cities that can expect downpour include Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Sargodha, Gujranwala, Peshawar, Quetta, Kalat, and Zhob, as well as some locales in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), Gilgit-Baltistan (GB), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), and Kashmir. Snowfall forecast In a separate note, however, Murree, Galiyat, Naran, Khagan, and Quetta are expected to experience snowfall. This development comes as good news for tourists.
  18. MALAKWAL: Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that he fulfilled the promise of ending load shedding all over the country under the dynamic leadership of Nawaz Sharif, while addressing a public gathering on Thursday. He added that the country's economy was at its worst when the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government took charge of the government but today all across the country development projects are being initiated. Taking a jibe at the Pakistan Peoples Party leader Asif Ali Zardari, the chief minister said that: "Zardari says that he signed for CPEC, but then why no projects under it were initiated in Pakistan". Shehbaz said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Imran Khan lies to the nation and levels false allegations. "I have taken Imran Khan to court for his baseless allegations, he doesn't appear before the court," Shehbaz added. The PML-N leader demanded court to constitute a bench to immediately hear cases related to the allegations leveled by the PTI Chairman.
  19. Kabul's Intercon Hotel was attacked earlier this week. Photo: File KABUL: Gunmen stormed an office of international NGO Save the Children in eastern Afghanistan on Wednesday, witnesses said, in an ongoing attack that has wounded at least 11 people. "At around 9:10am a suicide attacker detonated a car bomb at the entrance of Save the Children's compound in police district three of Jalalabad city," Nangarhar governor spokesman Attaullah Khogyani told AFP. "A group of armed men then entered the compound. So far 11 wounded people have been brought to hospitals." Mohammad Amin, who was inside the compound when the attackers stormed inside, told AFP from his hospital bed that he heard "a big blast". "We ran for cover and I saw a gunman hitting the main gate with an RPG (rocket propelled grenade) to enter the compound. I jumped out of the window," Amin said. The attack comes days after Taliban gunmen raided a luxury hotel in Kabul, killing at least 22 people, mostly foreigners.
  20. Phil Neville iNews via Getty Images LONDON: No sooner had Phil Neville been appointed the new head coach of the England women?s team than he found himself facing flak for a seemingly sexist Twitter message. In a 2012 post the former Manchester United, Everton and England defender said, "Morning men couple of hours cricket be4 (before) work sets me up nicely for the day." Asked why he?s only referred to men in his message, Neville ? an ex-England schoolboy cricketer ? replied: "When I said morning men I thought the women would of been busy preparing breakfast/getting kids ready/making the beds-sorry morning women!" Neville subsequently deleted the post but it was made public once again soon after he was appointed by the Football Association on a contract that will run until the end of the 2021 UEFA Women?s Championships. "Phil Neville" A 3 year contract? ," wrote Twitter user @hetsnormonster. "If he forgoes his 2 hours of cricket before work, he could do a degree in anthropology and bring himself up to date with the aspirations of modern women. Thereby enabling him to coach, unless of course he believes they aspire to be stereotyped." Neville?s tweet provided fresh embarrassment for English football?s governing body, with the 41-year-old only replacing Mark Sampson after the former women?s team, manager was sacked in September over allegations of misconduct in a previous role and amid a racism row that led to widespread criticism of senior FA officials. "I am honoured to be given the chance to lead England. With the new coaching team we are putting in place, we can help the players build on their great progress in recent years," Neville said. England hope to stage the 2021 European Championships, with Neville taking over a team that reached the last four of the 2017 Euros and is now third in the world rankings, behind only women?s football superpowers the United States and Germany. ?Question marks? His appointment is sure to raise question marks about the FA?s procedures given he has never previously worked in the women?s game. However, Neville insisted: "This squad is on the verge of something special and I believe I can lead them to the next level." Neville, who holds the UEFA Pro Licence, has worked as a coach at United and with the England Under-21 side since retiring as a player. He also had some involvement at Valencia while his brother Gary, also a former United and England player, was briefly in charge of the Spanish side from 2015-2016. Sports coaching is very much a family affair, with the Neville brothers? sister, Tracey Neville, the head coach of the England netball team. Neville?s first assignment in his new job will be the SheBelieves Cup tournament in the United States in March, when England play France, Germany and the hosts. Then comes next year?s women?s World Cup in France, with England, whose next qualifying game sees them play Wales in Southampton on April 6, looking to improve on their third place at the 2015 edition. That result was also achieved under Sampson but the Welshman?s reign ended in controversy after he was accused of racism by England striker Eni Aluko, although it was "inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour" in a previous role with Bristol Academy that eventually led the FA to sack him. England Under-19 women?s coach Mo Marley took over as caretaker boss of the senior side and led the team to a 1-0 friendly defeat by France in October before overseeing World Cup qualifying wins over Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kazakhstan. Attention turned to Neville, rather than a female boss, when Chelsea women?s manager Emma Hayes ruled herself out of the England job.
  21. LAHORE: A large contingent of police stands guard at the Punjab University where two groups clashed over a cultural event in the wee hours of Monday morning. Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif took notice of the incident and ordered CPO Lahore to submit a report. Speaking to Geo News, Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Muhammad Zakria Zakar said the situation was under control and those involved in disturbing the peace at the varsity were being identified using CCTV footage adding that strict action would be taken against them. "Not only will they be removed from the university, there will be legal action against them," Prof Zakar said. The clash broke out late Sunday night when one student group attacked another over their preparations for the 'pioneer festival' in the Electrical Engineering Department. Students attacked each other with batons and bricks. They also torched a room inside the department and a number of cars parked on the varsity?s premises. Last year in March the Punjab University had imposed a ban on student organisations from holding any kind of event. The ban came as a reaction to a brawl between two student groups at the university on March 21, 2017 in which 18 students were injured. A student group was celebrating their cultural day outside the Faisal Auditorium when a rival student group arrived and began chanting slogans against them which led to the clash.
  22. Let me know what is the image that comes to your mind when you read this short poem? Motivated by the light I sit in the darkness and plan my escape, the lighter reminds me of the sun. I drift off to a faraway land, it is always sunny here. I grind it pour it twist it lick it light it inhale it swallow it exhale it share it feel it finish it adore it A customer rolls a joint at a coffee shop in Roosendaal, a Dutch town where the mayor has taken the controversial decision to shut down four such cannabis cafés. ©Getty Images Somewhere around the corner, a stereo makes 'Killing Me Softly' by Frank Sinatra travel to your eardrums and you find yourself immersed in the atmosphere. They say Marijuana is not a drug, marijuana is a herb of wisdom. Smoking marijuana is a way to philosophize, so you can reach enlightenment. What you just read above is not the opening plot of any pot smoker loving Hollywood movie, but a slow-motion picture of a developing cafe weed culture in Britain. If you are in Britain, in the near future then do not get surprised to find an outlet of a popular brand, on a busy high street, where there is a café where you can buy cannabis and then sit, chill and smoke it. You realize marijuana is the keyword here and legalization is the debate trending these days? So a cluster of thick fumes escapes from the tips of countless lit joints quickly dissipating and escaping through a solitary ventilation shaft. The windows are blacked out and kept shut as well. All this makes it a place where a cross-section of young adults can meet and bond over common concerns. What's happening here is, by-the-book, wrong – but it shouldn't be. Cannabis café culture won't remain underground in the UK forever. Now in Uruguay, you can smoke anywhere. Many of the states and provinces in the US and Canada are legalizing at some pace. In Holland and Jamaica, it's been cool for a while too. It is like a wave that's just on a low tide right now. A woman smokes cannabis in Amsterdam, where the city council recently voted to ban smoking marijuana in public areas. ©Getty Images These kinds of cafes in Britain mostly sell two strains of weed and one of hash, along with various edibles. The products are of a high standard and the weight is a fair deal at £10 per gram. Menu at the cafe ©Deseret News Though the place from where all this is imported has remained unknown yet cannabis farms have recently been discovered in Darlington and Liverpool. The weed is probably imported from Holland and the hash from the Middle East. This is what one of the customers has to say about this growing weed cafe culture in Britain, “Since buying stuff on the street or even from dealers who visit your house can be risky and stressful. I drop into the café occasionally because it's way safer than picking up off the street for many reasons. Usually, street dealers overcharge and try to upsell you on coke or stronger stuff.” He further adds, “Even with someone good you can't be guaranteed you'll get the good stuff. I find a lot of them give you good, high-quality bags when you haven't bought in a while, then they give you crap after that. Here, though, you're occasionally given a big discount for being a regular customer. Plus, a bottle of beer is £2. You can't go wrong.” Doesn't that give you one more reason to visit a cafe than contacting someone on streets? Another one says, “Dealers on the street are notoriously unreliable and deceitful but the guys who run the café are friendly and make it a cool spot to hang out in.” A student smokes marijuana at a café in Sofia, Bulgaria. Smoking in public is not uncommon in the nation's capital. ©Getty Images Durham Police recently announced that they have no interest in pursuing low-level cannabis offenders. Sometimes these cafes have to move to a newer location on the complaints of constantly dissipating fumes filed by the neighbors. If the above said happens, then you may find a note stapled to the door saying: “Premises upstairs is closed. Please don't come back. It's being monitored by the police”. Then people text the contact number they had from before, get the address for the new spot around the corner and head off.
  23. The Inter-Continental hotel in Kabul was earlier attacked on June 28, 2011. Photo: The Telegraph KABUL: Four gunmen attacked Kabul's luxury Intercontinental Hotel on Saturday and started shooting at guests, an Afghan official said, in the latest violence to strike the Afghan capital. "Four attackers are inside the building," an official at the Afghan spy agency told AFP. They are "shooting at guests", he added. The fourth floor of the hotel is on fire, the official from the National Directorate of Security added. Occupants inside the hotel are hiding on the second floor, a security source said. A guest hiding in his room in the hotel told AFP he could hear gunfire. "I don't know if the attackers are inside the hotel but I can hear gunfire from somewhere near the first floor," he said without giving his name. "We are hiding in our rooms. I beg the security forces to rescue us as soon as possible before they reach and kill us." The Intercontinental was last targeted in June 2011 when a suicide attack killed 21 people, including 10 civilians. This is a developing story and will be updated as more information is received.
  24. A year ago Donald Trump ceded control of The Trump Organization to his adult sons, but refused to divest his assets, sparking a furious backlash from political opponents and ethics experts. Photo: Getty Images1 NEW YORK: A year ago Donald Trump ceded control of The Trump Organization to his adult sons, but refused to divest his assets, sparking a furious backlash from political opponents and ethics experts. Today his golf clubs in Florida and New Jersey, where he spent more than 80 days in 2017, provide a backdrop to his presidency. His opponents complain bitterly and lawsuits have mounted up against opaque ties between the White House and the company. A prime example of this contentious cocktail of business and politics is the Trump International Hotel in Washington, a six-minute drive from the White House. If some doubted whether transforming Washington´s old post office into a luxury Trump hotel would spell success, today its rooms, restaurants and conference rooms swarm with foreign diplomats and lobbyists. "The hotel is kind of a separate White House where you can buy a $27 Margarita and where you can talk to people who will talk the next day to the president," says Austin Envers, executive director of American Oversight, a non-profit bankrolled by Democratic donors to expose ethical violations of the Trump administration. "It´s a way to get access to people who work in the administration that regular Americans don´t have." Stays by Saudi and Malaysian delegations were questionable, says Envers, so too an event held by a group representing e-cigarette makers. A little while later, the administration froze a regulation requiring stricter oversight of the sector. Trump´s habit of making surprise visits to his properties, which has continued in office, has handed them only greater publicity and captivated guests. "Exceptional service," wrote one recent guest from Australia who gave his name only as David in an online review at Booking.com. "The extra bonus was when POTUS and FLOTUS showed up standing a couple of feet in front of my wife and me." POTUS bonus But neither is the presidency necessarily an automatic meal ticket either. The Trump Organization refused to comment to AFP, but in a recent interview with The New York Times, Eric Trump said the company had decided to focus on existing properties, which include 16 golf courses, a winery, seven hotels and commercial real estate. As part of the deal made public before the inauguration, the company vowed not to seek new foreign deals while Trump was in office. In New York, the group has also cut ties with Trump SoHo, which had been boycotted by celebrities and now operates as The Dominick Hotel. According to US media, several properties in Democratic majority cities such as Chicago and New York have suffered declining interest. Prior to the 2016 election, the company said it was launching a slightly more affordable hotel chain Scion, a name notable for its lack of obvious connection to Trump. The first is due to open in Cleveland, Mississippi, a Republican town later this year. But growth or not, there is a problem, opponents of the president say. 'More we don't know' The sheer fact that Trump could profit from his presidency and that foreign governments could patronize The Trump Organization to curry favour, is enough to create innumerable conflicts of interest, said Evers. In a lawsuit filed in June, nearly 200 Democratic members of Congress cited examples of favours accorded by foreign governments to the Trump Organization, including long-sought trademarks approved in China. They demand that any foreign income or contract should be submitted to Congress for approval, in keeping with the emoluments clause of the US Constitution. "If President Trump believes that his receipt of foreign emoluments raises no corruption concerns, he simply needs to present them to Congress -- which his party controls -- and get approval before he accepts them," said Connecticut´s Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, who spearheaded the lawsuit. "The fact that he has refused to take that step -- thumbing his nose at the Constitution -- raises serious questions about what he is trying to hide." The Trump Organization is a family firm, is not listed on the stock exchange and as such does not release its earnings. Trump has also always refused to release his tax returns, meaning that much is unknown about deals and finances. Disclosures published in June by the Office of Government Ethics showed that Trump brought in around $600 to $650 million in assets and income over the last year. His income at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida private members club nicknamed the "Winter White House," was up from $30 to $37 million. "There is every reason to believe there is much more we don´t know about, and it is probably the things we don´t know about that are the most troubling," said Blumenthal.
