ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogPCB chairman Najam Sethi/File photo Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi is confident international cricket will be fully restored in Pakistan within a maximum of two years. In a recent interview to BBC Urdu, Sethi expressed hope that in view of the improving security situation in the country and the successfully-hosted T20 matches in Lahore, the time is not far when Pakistan is able to host complete ODI and Test series. ?If we prepare our stadiums, we will be able to host matches with time. I believe international cricket will be fully restored in Pakistan within two years, at most,? he said. The PCB chief pointed out that Pakistan has already successfully hosted international cricketers [in the ICC World XI team], Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. ?And West Indies will be touring in March,? he added. About Pakistan team?s recent ODI whitewash in New Zealand, Sethi said it would take some time for the youngsters in the side to become ?stars?. ?The PSL has prepared us for T20s. Now we have to prepare for ODIs and Tests.? Pakistan team poses with the T20 trophy, Pakistan v New Zealand, 3rd T20I, Mount Maunganui, January 28, 2018/AFP/Getty Images He expressed concern that some of the veteran players in the team no longer have the required reflexes needed for modern cricket. ?That?s why we are building a young team. It takes time for young players to become stars.? Sethi admitted that the team tends to struggle in ODI cricket. ?Now our focus in on the 2019 World Cup, and we are getting ready for it.? He assured that cricket in Pakistan would receive a huge boost due to the new talent being discovered at school and club-level cricket and in PSL. ?You will see that the [inconsistency] will go away soon.? On spot-fixing, Sethi said he has ensured there is zero tolerance for violators of the board?s anti-corruption code. ?There is no room for forgiveness. We are monitoring with strict vigilance. There is absolutely zero tolerance,? he added.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogA spotted hyena has been sighted in a Gabon national park for the first time in 20 years, conservationists said Friday, Photo: AFP LIBREVILLE: A spotted hyena has been sighted in a Gabon national park for the first time in 20 years, conservationists said Friday, the latest large predator to have returned to a region where many had gone locally extinct. The Bateke Plateau National Park lies close to Gabon's border with the Republic of Congo. Its forests and grasslands once teemed with wildlife, including many large mammal predators, but the ecosystem was decimated by decades of poaching. Officials said a spotted hyena had been caught on camera traps in the park for the first time in two decades giving hope that more large mammals might return after years of conservation efforts. The sighting comes two years after a lone male lion was photographed by camera traps after returning. "The return of these large carnivores is a great demonstration that the efforts of our rangers and partners are having a positive effect on Bateke wildlife," professor Lee White, director of Gabon´s National Parks Agency said in a press release. The spotted hyena was so unknown in recent memories that when researchers showed local park rangers the photographs from the camera traps they did not know the species. But village elders in communities north of the park instantly recognised the hyena, researchers said. The sightings are a far cry from when researchers first set up their camera traps in 2001. That year all they photographed in Bateke was a lone antelope and multiple poachers crossing into the park from the Republic of Congo. The lion first spotted in 2015 has since made the park his home. But he has yet to be joined by any others. "This lion... has been continuously photographed during his three-year reign of the park, but remains alone, calling for a mate," the researchers said.

Well, even if you have ticked the above boxes, there are certain names you will remember no matter what and Karan Johar is one such name. From making a cameo appearance in 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge' to becoming one of the most sought after and successful directors in Bollywood, Karan Johar or as some call him KJo, has come a long way. © Dharma Productions Even if you don't remember most of his films, there is no way on earth that people will forget his directorial debut film! It was a movie which gave us a character no one else can ever dare to recreate – the one and only diva 'Poo'. Yes, we are talking about 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum' that completed 16 years today. Do you feel old already? We surely do. #I6yearsofK3G....a film that is exceptionally close to my heart....have the most beautiful memories...thank you @SrBachchan @iamsrk @iHrithik @kajol #jayaaunty #kareena #rani for making my experience so special.... A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Dec 13, 2017 at 10:50am PST Even today, the wave of 'K3G' rules our minds, thanks to the ensemble cast, brilliant acting and of course an over-the-board script that struck the right chord with the audience. © Dharma Productions And now that very movie has completed 16 years and its proud director KJo shared an amazing series of pictures that took us right down memory lane. He posted pictures from behind the scenes and brought back all those amazing memories attached with the film. #16yearsofK3G......the age of innocence A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Dec 13, 2017 at 10:51am PST Who do you think did it better? Karan Johar or Kareena Kapoor?

It seems I was obsessed with Poo!!!! #16yearsofk3g A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Dec 13, 2017 at 9:54pm PST And we found another reason to go and watch 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Ghum' again. Last minute adjustments #16yearsofk3g A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Dec 13, 2017 at 9:55pm PST While we were swimming in the pool of nostalgia, it was Kajol who stole the limelight with her hilarious reply. After Karan posted the picture, Kajol was quick to recollect that it was the same shot that was taken when she broke her finger and was on painkillers. © Dharma Productions As we were containing our excitement after reading their replies, Farah Khan too jumped into the banter and started a separate hilarious discussion altogether. © Dharma Productions From Amitabh Bachchan playing a typical patriarch, Shah Rukh Khan playing his obedient son who falls in love with a free-spirited Kajol and leaves the house when Amitabh disapproves of her, to Laddoo's insane body transformation and the self-obsessed Poo; every character made the movie a memorable affair for all Bollywood fans. But if at all there was a K3G sequel to be made, we would want a movie solely focusing on Poo's life.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogSenate Chairman Raza Rabbani. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani said on Thursday that today our society and state are still lost despite the passage of 70 years. Talking about the supremacy of Parliament, Rabbani, a senior leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party, said Parliament has to make the budget and decide the number of Supreme Court judges. Speaking at a seminar at the National Press Club, Rabbani said we need to make [people] understand that Parliament is the jugular vein of the country and federation. "If the jugular is cut then the body will continue to suffer," he remarked. The veteran politician said Parliament will have to play its role to face the immense internal and external challenges facing the country. Rabbani cautioned that stability is the need of the hour, stressing that "we have to improve our shortcomings". He added that Parliament will have to become a transparent institution that delivers on people?s issues. "If the average person?s ownership will be inside Parliament, then there will not be any 'intervals'," he said, on the anniversary of the October 12, 1999 coup by then army chief General Pervez Musharraf.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogGENEVA: The number of obese children and adolescents worldwide has jumped tenfold in the past 40 years and the rise is accelerating in low- and middle-income countries, especially in Asia, a major study said on Wednesday. Childhood and teen obesity rates have levelled off in the United States, north-western Europe and other rich countries, but remain ?unacceptably high? there, researchers at Imperial College London and the World Health Organization (WHO) said. ?Over 40 years we have gone from about 11 million to a more than tenfold increase to over 120 million obese children and adolescents throughout the world,? lead author Majid Ezzati of Imperial?s School of Public Health, told a news conference. This means that nearly 8 percent of boys and nearly 6 percent of girls worldwide were obese in 2016, against less than one percent for both sexes in 1975. An additional 213 million children aged 5-19 were overweight last year, but fell below the threshold for obesity, according to the largest ever study, based on height and weight measurements of 129 million people. The researchers called for better nutrition at home and at school, and more physical exercise to prevent a generation from becoming adults at greater risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancers due to excessive weight. Clear food labels on salt, sugar and fat content are needed to help consumers make ?healthy choices?, the study said. Taxation and tough restrictions on marketing of junk food should be considered, it said. WHO has already recommended a 20 percent tax on sugary drinks to reduce consumption. RAPID TRANSITION South Africa, Egypt and Mexico which had ?very low levels of obesity four decades ago? now have among the high rates of obesity in girls, between 20-25 percent, Ezzati said. ?The experience of east Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean show that the transition from underweight to overweight and obesity can be rapid,? the study said. If current trends continue, in 2022 there will be more obese children and teenagers worldwide than underweight ones, who now number 192 million, half of them in India, the study said. Polynesia and Micronesia had the highest rates of child obesity last year, 25.4 percent in girls and 22.4 percent in boys, followed by ?the high-income English-speaking region? that includes the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Britain. Among high-income countries, the United States had ?the highest obesity rates for girls and boys?, 19.5 percent and 23.3 percent, respectively. ?Children are not getting physical activity in the school days, there is poor food opportunities in many schools, walking and cycling to school is going down in many countries, unsafe in many other countries, and parents are not being given the right, sufficient advice on nutrition,? said Fiona Bull of WHO?s department of non-communicable diseases. ?It?s the changing environments, food, behaviours, portions, consumption patterns have completely changed over the last 40 years. Highly processed food is more available, more marketed and it?s cheaper,? she said.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogPARIS: Rudimentary life may have existed on Earth 3.95 billion years ago, a time when our infant planet was being bombarded by comets and had hardly any oxygen, researchers said Wednesday. A team presented what they say is the oldest-known fossil evidence for life on the Blue Planet -- grains of graphite, a form of carbon, wedged into ancient sedimentary rocks in Labrador, Canada. The previous most ancient life traces were reported in March, from a site in Quebec estimated at between 3.8 billion and 4.3 billion years old, though an author of the new study called that dating process "highly controversial." "This is the oldest evidence," Tsuyoshi Komiya of The University of Tokyo insisted in an email exchange with AFP. "Our samples are also the oldest supracrustal rocks preserved on Earth" -- a type similar to the formation which contained the Quebec samples. Fossil evidence for early organisms is scarce, and rocks that remain from that period are often poorly preserved. A key difficulty for scientists on a quest to find the oldest life on Earth is proving that organic remains were produced by living organisms rather than geological processes. This field of study is aimed not only at pinpointing the start of life on our planet, but also to shed light on the possibility of life having existed -- or still existing -- on other planets such as Mars. For the new study, Komiya and a team studied graphite, a form of carbon used in pencil lead, in rocks at Saglek Block in Labrador, Canada. They measured its isotope composition, the signature of chemical elements, and concluded the graphite was "biogenic" -- meaning it was produced by living organisms. The identity of the organisms, or what they looked like, remains a mystery. "We will analyse other isotopes such as nitrogen, sulphur and iron of the organic matter and accompanied minerals to identify the kinds of organisms," said Komiya of the next step. "In addition, we can estimate the environment" in which the organisms lived by analysing the chemical composition of the rock itself. If the findings are accurate, it means life took hold on Earth just a geological second after its formation some 4.5 billion years ago. Before the Quebec fossils, which were also described in Nature, the oldest traces of life were found in Greenland's ice cap and dated to 3.7 billion years ago.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogLAHORE: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal said on Saturday that Pakistan made exceptional gains during the past four years, adding that today the country is peaceful. The interior minister spoke to media in Lahore, where he also paid tribute to World XI players who came to Pakistan in a bid to revive cricket here. Ahsan congratulated the area residents over security arrangements and said that soon Karachi will also get security clearance. ?The successful PSL final was the impetus behind the international players? motivation to come to Pakistan,? he said. While discussing the gains the country made during the past years, Iqbal said that the backbone of terrorism has been broken, except 'one or two incidents that happen from across the border'. Development projects worth billions are in progress in Balochistan, he said.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogPCB chairman Najam Sethi shares a light moment with World XI captain Faf du Plessis in Lahore Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi has said the World XI will tour Pakistan every year for the next three years, as the country took a giant step towards reviving international cricket at home with a 20-run victory over the World XI in the first of three T20 matches before excited crowds at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. ?The World XI series is now planned for every year for the three years. This is first of the three series and there will be two more in the next years,? he told The Guardian in Lahore, adding that many more teams could be touring Pakistan in the coming years if all goes well. ?Once this [World XI tour] is done the Sri Lankans have committed to play one or two matches in Lahore next month and then the West Indies have committed to me that they will come for three matches in November,? he said. ?If there is no untoward incident that mars any of these events then I?d imagine by next year at least one or two big teams will come to Pakistan,? he added. The PCB and PSL chairman said that two years ago, the board did not want to ?risk anything that might endanger the guests even if they were prepared to come?. ?Now we can say with assurance that the war against terrorism has been taken to its logical conclusion and that 90-95% of terrorism has abated in this country. ?A sufficient condition was to convince the international community in general and the ICC in particular that the situation was safe to play cricket. ?First step in that direction was to at least try and play at least one match in Pakistan, which is why I fought tooth and nail to have the PSL final in Lahore. ?Security experts affiliated with various boards and also with the ICC came to the Lahore final and saw for themselves the excellent security arrangements that were in place, and then they went back and gave their reports. All this formed the basis for a World XI tour,? he explained. Pakistan, sent in to bat by World XI skipper Faf du Plessis in the first T20, notched 197-5 with Babar Azam hitting a rapid 52-ball 86 ? his career best T20 score. Babar Azam stars as Pakistan beat WXI in first T20 Lahore?s Gaddafi Stadium lights up tonight as cricket comes home The World XI started off well with Tamim Iqbal hitting 18 with three boundaries and Hashim Amla smashing three boundaries and a six in his 17-ball 26 but left-arm pacer Rumman Raees dismissed both in the same over to put the brakes on their innings. Skipper Faf du Plessis hit four boundaries and a six while Darren Sammy smashed three sixes -- both scoring 29 -- but were unable to see their team through. Tuesday marked the first time that five of Pakistan players -- Ashraf, Zaman, Shadab, Raees and Hasan Ali -- played an international match on home soil.

The finance minister, while addressing the launch ceremony of the national tax directory, added that over 1.2 million people filed their tax returns in 2016. Dar further said that the country's tax revenue has increased from Rs1,946 in 2013 to Rs3,362 billion. The finance minister stated that the increase in tax revenue was achieved by bringing the privilege class in to the tax net.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Wednesday that Pakistan will become an Asian Tiger within the next few years, adding that the country would be a strong regional power in future. The PM was addressing a gathering in Nankana Sahib. In his speech, he challenged the opposition members to visit the under construction Motorway. The opposition should praise at least something, he said, adding that the political rivals need to witness the evolution the country is going through. The previous governments created an electricity shortfall, said the PM. “We are bringing electricity again and that also with affordable rates,” said Nawaz. The PM said that the public has stopped looking up to opposition parties, instead, they have their sights set upon those who are working for Pakistan’s development.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogTesla Inc founder and Chief Executive Elon Musk said his latest company Neuralink Corp is working to link the human brain with a machine interface by creating micron-sized devices. Neuralink is aiming to bring to the market a product that helps with certain severe brain injuries due to stroke, cancer lesion etc, in about four years, Musk said in an interview with website Wait But Why. "If I were to communicate a concept to you, you would essentially engage in consensual telepathy," Musk said in the interview published on Thursday. Artificial intelligence and machine learning will create computers so sophisticated and godlike that humans will need to implant "neural laces" in their brains to keep up, Musk said at a tech conference last year. "There are a bunch of concepts in your head that then your brain has to try to compress into this incredibly low data rate called speech or typing," Musk said in the latest interview. "If you have two brain interfaces, you could actually do an uncompressed direct conceptual communication with another person." The technology could take about eight to 10 years to become usable by people with no disability, which would depend heavily on regulatory approval timing and how well the devices work on people with disabilities, Musk was quoted as saying. In March, the Wall Street Journal reported that Musk had launched a company through which computers could merge with human brains. Neuralink was registered in California as a "medical research" company last July, and he plans on funding the company mostly by himself.
