  1. Kamyab Jawan Programme: 200,000 to 300,000 youth likely to get loans under YESISLAMABAD: Around 200,000 to 300,000 budding entrepreneurs are likely to get benefit under the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES), a component of the government’s flagship Kamyab Jawan project launched to offer soft loan facility to those having workable business ideas. “Only 15 to 25 per cent of the total applicants may get the concessionary loans under the ‘YES’ as it seems that some 50 to 60 per cent apparently applied in haste and got rejected for having no business plans,” Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs Usman Dar informed APP while highlighting the current statistics of the loan scheme. YES was launched under the banner of Kamyab Jawan Programme in October last year under which Rs 100 billion allocated for the youth and loans ranging from Rs 100,000 to Rs 5 million would be disbursed among the youth coming up with practicable business ideas. “Some 1.3 million youth applied for the loan scheme in merely 15 days which brings it into international spotlight as a team of the United Nations has discussed this Kamyab Jawan programme for attracting such a large proportion of youth,” the special assistant said. The scheme was almost in the launching process as the applications were being scrutinized and verified by making phone calls, doing Smart Message Service (SMS) and carrying out a third party verification of the applicants. He assured that the allocated money belonged to youth and would be spent on deserving ones. He said the loans would be distributed on equitable basis as Rs25 billion had been dedicated for the women under YES exclusively. Initially, the soft loans would be distributed in Sindh and then extended to the other provinces. “Prime Minister Imran Khan will distribute loan cheques among the successful applicants of the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES) from Sindh on January 27,” he informed.

  3. Salman Khan has always maintained that he does not give much credit to the reviews by the critics, instead, it's the box office collection which is the key validating factor to a movie's success. Salman's latest release 'Bharat', which is an official remake of the South Korean film 'Ode to My Father', started off on a great note but then lost its pace at the box office market and now, it looks like it has run out of steam. The movie has managed to earn Rs 188.65 crore at the ticket windows and is struggling to cross the Rs 200 crore mark. The movie opened to mixed reviews from critics, as some called it bland while some termed it the perfect Eid blockbuster. We wonder if the movie will be able to make Rs 200 crore at the box office. 'Bharat' was released on 4,700 screens in India and on over 1,300 screens overseas. In one of the group interviews, while promoting the movie, Salman said, “My validation comes from the box office collections... that the people have liked or not liked a film. It doesn't make a difference if someone (a critic) has given it so many stars (ratings) or ridiculed the film. It's their bread and butter. God bless them, give them two more (slices of) bread.” View this post on Instagram Thank you so much for all the love and support you have shown towards 'Bharat' #BharatAudienceReactions @bharat_thefilm @aliabbaszafar @atulreellife #BhushanKumar @katrinakaif @tabutiful @apnabhidu @sonalikul @dishapatani @whosunilgrover @norafatehi @iaasifsheikhofficial @nikhilnamit @reellifeproduction @skfilmsofficial @tseries.official A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on Jun 13, 2019 at 3:03am PDT Now that the movie is struggling to touch the Rs 200 crore mark, we wonder what Salman has to say seeing the current scenario. 'Bharat' is produced by Atul Agnihotri's Reel Life Production Pvt Ltd and Bhushan Kumar's T-Series. The film also stars Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles. Have you seen the movie? Let us know in the comments section below.
  4. If you have been an ardent fan of the Indian cricket team in late 1990s and early 2000s, you would despise it whenever Matthew Hayden took to the crease against our bowlers. Hell, even the Men in Blue needed to rattle their brains in order to get this legend of a cricketer to return to the locker room. Such a terror was the former Aussie skipper. However, ever since the Indian Premier League (IPL) began in 2008, Hayden, who batted for Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings for the first three years (2008-10) before retiring, was welcomed by the people of Chennai with open arms because of the level of success he brought to the “whistle podu” franchise. Finally, when Hayden took to the commentary box to stay connected to the game he loves so much and show off his speaking skills, he truly became one of our favourites. Also, there is something about tall, international players in 'lungis' that no Indian fan can get over, period. We have to make them one of our own once they have worn lungi in public, it's an unspoken code. Well, that's exactly what the 6'1'' athlete from Down Under did a couple of days ago when he was spotted at Chennai's heavily populated area of T Nagar, shopping. Disguised in fake beard and mustache, Haydos covered his head with a fisherman's hat, looking all dapper in a brand new lungi. View this post on Instagram Bit of undercover shopping at T Nagar Street Mall in Chennai @starsportsindia @iplt20 @chennaiipl A post shared by Matthew Hayden (@haydos359) on Apr 1, 2019 at 8:10am PDT “Bit of undercover shopping at T Nagar Street Mall in Chennai,” wrote the Australian on his Instagram post. But, why go through the trouble to stick fake hairs to your face, only to head out in the public? According to an interview with the Times of India, Hayden was challenged to do so by his buddy and former Australian teammate Shane Warne. “It was a challenge by Warne to buy items for under Rs 1000. That's why I went around the market to buy some lungis, shirts, Rajini sunnies and a watch,” he said. Hayden was also assisted by a local boy, whom he remembered to thank for winning the bet: “I paid the boy Rs 100. And I can proudly tell you that I won the challenge (with Warne).”
  5. As Mithali Raj walked today into the Seddon Park for the toss as the captain of the Indian cricket team ahead of the third ODI in Hamilton, she created history once again, becoming the first woman to play 200 ODIs. Adding another feat to an already decorated career, Raj's spot in the ICC Hall of Fame is a no-brainer. What's your favourite memory of @M_Raj03'S ODI career? pic.twitter.com/h7HGFJfWYv — ICC (@ICC) February 1, 2019 At the age of 36, if she was asked what career-path would she want to pursue, she would certainly choose that of a cricketer, but a 9-year-old Raj would have said that she wanted to pursue a career in dance. Unlike a lot of aspiring cricketers, Mithali Raj was never one to have sleepless nights fantasizing about donning that blue kit and representing India on an international level. In fact, as a child, Raj had no plans to join the sport which is so famously known as a 'gentleman's game'. The skipper has made it absolutely clear that the only reason she took to cricket was because her father, Dorai Raj forced her to play cricket just because she was extremely lazy and her dad wanted her to be more active, which had no impact on her lifestyle whatsoever as she continues to be equally lazy (her words, not ours). “My dad made a decision to turn me into a professional cricketer. The hours of training sessions and the performance in the game… these are the things that started too early for me as an 11-year-old,” Raj shares in an interview with the ICC. “At that phase when I started putting so many hours in the game, I really realised that… I have stopped enjoying the game and at some point, I hated my dad for putting me into the sport.” Ever since she made her ODI debut on 25th June 1995, she's had multiple spells as the captain of the Indian women's cricket team, the first one coming just before the 2005 World Cup. The young batswoman was nervous to shoulder the responsibility one because it was during the biggest tournament of all and two, because a lot of senior players and even an ex-captain was in the team, which now belonged to her. But that was probably the only instance Mithali truly shook in her boots. With a résumé with 20 years-worth of experience, the Indian skipper has no more jitters to confront. While most players indulge in boosting their morale before going out to bat, the veteran can be calmly reading a book with her kit on. “I am the senior-most player in the team. I am a more mature leader and I have no apprehensions any more,” she said in an interview with the Times of India. © ICC Mithali Raj is probably one of the wisest sportspersons of our generation who, despite facing so much of criticism as a player, a teammate, and even for just being herself, continues to do her thing without caring about what the world has to say. She has turned something that she used to completely despise, into something which helped her make a mark for herself and become one of best, and that is something every young athlete must try and imbibe.
  6. In our nation today, eating beef is the biggest crime for which the consequences can be severe. Cows are sacred and are supposed to be worshipped, don't you know that? How dare anyone do anything to our 'gau mata'? Any 'crime' against cows is punishable by death, apparently, or at least that's what a lot of people have decided. So, since cows are the most important animal in the country, our beloved PM Narendra Modi decided to gift 200 cows to the nation of Rwanda, probably as a gesture of goodwill. But, someone at the PM's office might just lose their job for not doing their research properly. © Twitter This gift was a part of the 'Girinka scheme', an age-old cultural practice in Rwanda, where people gift cows to each other as a sign of respect and gratitude. Turns out, beef is a very popular food in Rwanda and it's safe to assume they won't use all of our desi 'gau matas' just for milk. Moreover, it's a gift and no one can object to what they do with them. So, where does that leave us? Everyone is confused now because of how bad the repercussions are to eating beef in India, so how exactly will our esteemed 'gau rakshaks' protect the Indian cows in Rwanda? Yes, we hope he's alright. A man got lynched because he was taking 2 cows from one village to another. I just heard that another man is taking 200 cows from India to Rwanda. I hope nothing happens to him. I pray for him! — Atul Khatri (@one_by_two) July 24, 2018 Where's the concern for cows now, huh? The 100 cows gifted to Rwanda by PM Modi, instead of providing milk might just become food!

UNESCO gives "Biggest Cow-Smuggler" award to Modi for smuggling 200 cows to Rwanda !#WahModiJiWah Dear bhakts plz dont lynch our PM Bcoz wo #ChowkidarNahiBhagidar hai.. pic.twitter.com/JzU0nkQjJO — Vinay Kumar Dokania (@VinayDokania) July 23, 2018 Fun fact! PM Modi, who is currently visiting Rwanda has promised to 'gift' 200 locally-sourced cows to a village. Fun fact: Rwanda consumes beef regularly, while in India, certain states have banned its consumption. — Er Firoz Alam (@Firoz4you) July 24, 2018 So great of him! Mr Modi has gifted 200 cows to Rwanda. They are overjoyed. They are beef eaters and this will feed many mouths in this poverty stricken country — ashok kumar (@akbundi) July 24, 2018

  15. As a matter of fact, KSG's personal style has taken a complete roundabout in recent years. From wearing only semi-formal wear while out-and-about to flip-flops (with ripped jeans), to now flaunting some capital-F pieces — the actor's recent stint with style has been terrific. But where he really shines, even post his big style transformation, is yet his first love: semi-formal wear. He wears it like he was born to wear it and always injects personality into whatever the hell he wears. Clearly, he has now aced the (semi) formal wear game. Recently, for an event in Mumbai, Grover turned to another example of his expertise in the formal category of fashion. But while the ensemble was semi-formal in nature, it only restricted that vibe to the top-half. Throughout the bottom half, there was a sudden advent of street wear details and things you can get for less at any online portal. For starters, here's the ensemble: © Viral Bhayani Pairing a mandarin collar white T-shirt with a solid black waistcoat — Karan's top-half was supremely close to an outfit you could turn to for a slightly formal setting. However, while the top was quite put-together, Grover decided to stick to Athleisure for the rest of the ensemble, giving us a major sight to notice. © Viral Bhayani Having said that, you can cop the look in no less than Rs. 4,200.

  17. It is not everyday that historical events like the six-day-long 'Kisan' march are witnessed in Mumbai. Around 50,000 farmers, marched for over 200 km on foot, not caring about food and water, strengthened by their burning demand to claim what is their right. The entire city of Mumbai came forward to serve them while the nation empathised with the farmers. © Twitter However, not many know the name that was responsible for this whole idea for the farmers to take this drastic step. Vijoo Krishnan is the force behind the 'Kisan' march. He is the former President of Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) and the leader of the Students Federation of India (SFI). Vijoo has been associated with this battle for farmers for a long time. © Twitter He hails from Karivellur village in Kannur, Kerala where another battle was fought by the farmers against the British Raj back in 1946. A full-time activist, Vijoo personally took the plunge of inspiring the farmers to take this extreme step. In an interview with News18, Vijoo explained the situation. “This is an uprising of the agrarian sector and it has been happening for the last two years. It is happening in many parts of the country such as Rajasthan, Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh apart from Maharashtra. There were various kinds of agitations prior to this and now we have an active participation of about 50,000 farmers.” The farmers wanted the government to immediately implement the loan waiver scheme that was announced last year, and the implementation of the Forest Rights Act, 2006. This country needs more public figures like Krishnan who take up issues that require social justice.
  18. CM Balochistan Abdul Quddus Bizenjo, Commander Southern Command Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa meeting former insurgents in the ceremony. Photo: Geo News QUETTA: As many as 200 separatist militants, including 15 commanders, laid down renounced violence and laid down their arms on Thursday at a ceremony held at FC Headquarters Turbat. Chief Minister Abdul Quddus Bizenjo and Commander Southern Command Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa were chief guests of the ceremony. The separatists announced submitting to the writ of the state and becoming part of the national mainstream, according to an official press release. Meanwhile, Switzerland has rejected the request of the exiled leader of the banned Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Brahumdagh Bugti to seek political asylum after more than seven years, just a week after imposing lifetime entry ban on the prominent exiled Baloch leader and Bugti?s brother-in-law, Mehran Marri. A source in the Swiss government confirmed that Brahumdagh Bugti?s asylum application was turned down because of his links with ?incidents of terrorism, violence and militant activities? and the rejection letter clearly sets out these allegations. Bugti confirmed that his asylum application has been rejected by the Swiss government on the basis of allegations that he has links with the banned Baloch Republican Army (BRA). Bugti had applied for asylum in Swiss in November 2010 claiming that his life was at risk. He had been living in Afghanistan prior to leaving the country for a Middle Eastern state and from there he flew to Geneva. It was last week that the Swiss authorities detained Mehran Marri and his family at the Zurich airport and deported them to Germany, after slapping a ban on Mehran Baluch for having links with militancy in Balochistan.
  19. Tunisian protesters are seen in the Djebel Lahmer district of the capital Tunis early on January 10, 2018 in a second night of unrest driven by anger over austerity measures. Photo: AFP 2 TUNIS: More than 200 people were arrested and dozens hurt during clashes in several parts of Tunisia, the interior ministry said Wednesday, after the second night of unrest driven by anger over austerity measures. Ministry spokesman Khalifa Chibani told local radio that 49 police officers were wounded during clashes across the country and that 206 "troublemakers" were arrested. Properties were damaged, he said, including a branch of the Carrefour supermarket chain in the suburbs of Tunis that was looted. Police and army forces were deployed in several cities during the night, including in Tebourba 30 kilometres (20 miles) west of the capital Tunis, where hundreds of young people took to the streets after the funeral of a man in his 40s who died in unrest on Monday night. Police have insisted they did not kill the man. The results of an autopsy have not been made public. Unrest was also reported in the southern city of Gafsa, in Kasserine in central Tunisia and in Sidi Bouzid, the cradle of the protests that sparked the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings. Tunisia has seen several days of demonstrations after activists and politicians denounced hikes in value-added tax and social contributions introduced at the start of the year as a tough new budget was implemented. Protests are common in the North African state in the month of January, when Tunisians mark the anniversary of the 2011 revolt that unseated dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. The country has been hailed for its relatively smooth democratic transition but seven years after the revolution tensions over economic grievances are high.
  20. Immigrants, activists and elected officials staged a press conference in New York on January 8 to demand that the Department of Homeland Security extend Temporary Protected Status for Salvadorans. Photo: AFP WASHINGTON: The US government announced Monday the end of a special protected status for about 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants, a move that threatens with deportation tens of thousands of well-established families with children born in the United States. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced the end of the "temporary protected status" (TPS) granted to Salvadorans already in the United States in 2001, when two major earthquakes rocked the Central American country. They were given 18 months to leave or be deported, which officials said is enough time for a legislative solution to be crafted by Congress to allow them to stay. "Only Congress can legislate a permanent solution addressing the lack of an enduring lawful immigration status of those currently protected by TPS," said the Department of Homeland Security. Part of a broader crackdown on illegal immigration by President Donald Trump, the move comes after 59,000 longtime resident Haitians and 5,300 Nicaraguans were stripped of similar protections late last year, after having been allowed to set deep roots inside the United States for decades. Democrats in Congress are also fighting to protect the right to stay inside the US of 690,000 young immigrants known as "Dreamers," people who arrived in the country as children. Trump has said he will back a compromise on the Dreamers if Congress budgets $18 billion to build an anti-immigrant wall along the border with Mexico. Canada said it wanted to "make sure we´re ready" for an influx of Salvadorans, in an effort to prevent the kind of massive flooding of the border that took place after the US ended protections for Haitians. 'My life is here' Many, if not most, of those shielded by TPS had originally entered the country illegally or overstayed visas, but the programme had effectively allowed them to settle down without the constant fear of deportation. Previous governments rolled over the protected status with little debate, but Trump has pursued a tougher "law and order" approach to the issue. For TPS beneficiaries, the decision was a thunderbolt. "My life is here," said Minda Hernandez, a 48-year-old housekeeper from Long Island who fled conflict in El Salvador 20 years ago -- leaving a one-year-old child behind. "This is where my home is, where I pay my taxes. I am happy here -- even if I work myself to death." Now she fears most for her 16-year-old son, who was born in the United States. "There are so many gangs and crime back there," she said. "But how could I leave him here alone?" In San Salvador, President Salvador Sanchez Ceren avoided criticizing Washington and focused on the 18-month grace period. Ceren´s administration "considers this decision to be a recognition of the contribution of our compatriots who hold this migratory benefit, who are an important workforce in that country," the presidency said. Ceren´s government has grown closer to the United States, and was one of only eight countries at the United Nations to support the US move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel´s capital in December. Important to US & Salvador economies Without a change in the law, some 195,000 Salvadorans will be forced to leave the country by September 9, 2019, in what amounts to one of the Trump administration´s most substantial moves yet to enforce its crackdown on illegal immigration. This impacts large communities of deeply-rooted people in California, Texas and around the US capital -- more than 135,000 households -- according to the Center for Migration Studies. Nearly all have jobs, over a quarter own homes with a mortgage, 10 percent are self-employed and about 10 percent have married US citizens. They are as important to the Salvadoran economy as they are to the US. Remittances from the more than one million Salvadorans across the United States account for a large chunk of Salvadoran GDP. "We are not criminals. We came here to realize the American dream, which unfortunately we cannot obtain in our country," said Hugo Rodriguez, a 48-year-old Salvadoran cook in Brooklyn´s celebrated Peter Luger Steakhouse. "We have succeeded due to our work... We are a part of the economic engine of this country." The decision will also impact nearly 193,000 children of Salvadorans born inside the United States -- who have citizenship rights unlike their parents. Washington union activist Jaime Contreras, who arrived from El Salvador in 1988 and earned his citizenship, called the DHS decision "shameful" and "inhumane." "We have 18 months to pressure Congress and tell them it´s time once and for all to give TPS holders a path to citizenship," he said during a small protest outside the White House immediately following the announcement. "Today´s decision is a poignant reminder that we have an anti-immigrant president who turns his back on hardworking families and insists on governing by fear and intimidation," said Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto.

  23. Singer Sam Smith arrives at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Beverly Hills, California, US. February 28, 2016. REUTERS/Danny Moloshok/Files LOS ANGELES: Sam Smith?s The Thrill of it All scored the British singer?s first No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album chart, edging out new releases by Maroon 5 and Blake Shelton, according to data from Nielsen SoundScan on Monday. With some 67,000 units sold, Taylor Swift?s latest single ?Call It What You Want? led the digital songs chart, which measures online singles sales. Swift?s Reputation album sold more than 717,000 copies on Friday, its first day of release, according to BuzzAngle Music data, and is expected to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 chart next week. Smith?s The Thrill of it All sold more than 237,000 units in its first week to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Billboard said it was Smith?s best sales week ever in the United States. The Billboard 200 chart tallies units from album sales, song sales (10 songs equal one album) and streaming activity (1,500 streams equal one album).

  24. KARACHI: For Karachi mayor and Pak Sarzameen Party (PSP) Chairperson Mustafa Kamal allotted 1,200 illegal plots of land in the metropolis, said an anti-corruption inquiry report on Monday. The plots were allotted in the Mehmoodabad area of the metropolis when Kamal was the mayor of Karachi. The land was marked to be used for the construction of a treatment plant. According to sources in the anti-corruption body, permission has been sought to register a case against the PSP chairman. The request to register the case against Kamal is part of the inquiry into the TPT project. The land meant to be used for the construction of a treatment plant was allotted illegally to residents of Lines Area, with the project still not functional. Sources added that the total area of the land was 61 acres, which was divided into 1200 residential plots and the design of the project was also changed. The change in design pushed the cost of the project upwards to Rs18 billion. Earlier in 2016, former city nazim Mustafa Kamal formed a new party in a direct challenge to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM). He was formerly associated with MQM.
  25. MOSCOW: A malware attack that hit a Ukrainian international airport and Russian media outlets had almost 200 other targets in those countries and other European states, an internet security firm said Wednesday. The "BadRabbit" malware that struck on Tuesday appeared to be the largest since "NotPetya" was launched from the same two countries before affecting the rest of the world in July. The ransomware infected devices through a number of hacked Russian media websites, with a message appearing demanding payment before the user's files, could be recovered, the Russian security firm Kaspersky Lab said. "Most of the targets are located in Russia. Similar but fewer attacks have also been seen in other countries -- Ukraine, Turkey, and Germany. Overall, there are almost 200 targets," the company said. Ukraine´s Odessa International Airport said its "information system" stopped functioning on Tuesday afternoon, but flights were later going in and out of the Black Sea resort according to schedule. Russian media outlets were also affected, including the major news agency Interfax and the Saint Petersburg independent news site Fontanka. "We have only managed to reestablish our work capabilities in part ... unfortunately, not all our news delivery systems are working. Our internet is still not working," an Interfax executive said Wednesday. Fontanka on Wednesday tied the attack to its series of investigative reports about Russia´s involvement in the Syrian conflict. But Russian and Ukrainian authorities said the attacks were random rather than targeted. "With all due respect to big media organisations, they are not critical infrastructure," telecoms minister Nikolai Nikiforov said when asked about the attack on Russian media. "This was not a targeted attack. Ukrainian entities were not the only ones to be effected," the cybersecurity department of Ukraine´s police force said in a statement. The US Computer Emergency Readiness Team, an organisation within the Department of Homeland Security, issued a note on "Bad Rabbit" discouraging users from paying the ransom, saying this "does not guarantee that access will be restored."
