  1. It's not a surprise for us anymore that Ranveer Singh has his fashion game strong at all hours. Right from super funky tuxedos to making a statement in a queen-like avatar, he has broken all the stereotypes and turns heads in ensembles that raise eyebrows with NBD. That's exactly what makes him Ranveer Singh, a star whose flamboyance is exceptional and fairs right with his personality. View this post on Instagram Metallica! #ranveersingh in #gauravGupta #saintlaurent #franckmukller for #starscreenawards2019 #styling #redcarpet ð¸ @sheldon.santos A post shared by Nitasha Gaurav (@nitashagaurav) on Dec 8, 2019 at 8:04am PST It's not just his outfits that we are referring to but his accessory and shoe game is also proof that he is all things over-the-top. We can't and we won't ever stop diggin' his looks. This time around for an awards ceremony, our very own 'Baba' was spotted in a rather classy debonair. Add to that his wristwatch, which instantly ramped up his look to new heights. Now, if you are wondering what makes it worth Rs. 13,82,400, here you go: © Viral Bhayani © Franck Muller The Gully Boy actor is seen in Franck Muller's Iron Croco watch. The watch with its flamboyance adds to the striking aspect of its Croco series. The bearing has an automatic movement which is adorned with Rhodium plating with Côtes de Genève. This watch from the family of Croco series dials up the style quotient in an extravagant manner. View this post on Instagram @ranveersingh spotted wearing @franckmuller_geneve iron croco watch â¹13,82,400. The exotic Black Croco Collection from Franck Muller, first launched in 2011, was bold. It was a daring timepiece for the sartorially-confident man who had no qualms about making a statement. Two new additions, the Iron Croco and Gold Croco Collections join its predecessor, with 3-D scales in steel and gold variation. The crocodile skin patterns are further complemented with a black hand-sewn alligator strap, as a finishing touch. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #ranveersingh#hype#adidas#nas#badboy#styleofdday#simba#rohitsheety#dhadak#nike#celebrity#fashion#khushikapoor#bollywood#Style#instalike#mumbai#beyondtheclouds#india#jhanvikapoor#instadaily#instalove#trailerofdhadak#instafollow#celebslife#btownstylespotter#btownstyle#instalove#instalike#btownstyle#rolex#rich#luxury ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Tag ur Friendsð¤ Comment ð¬ Likeâï¸Share and Follow Us for more updates A post shared by btownstylespotter (@btownstyles) on Oct 19, 2019 at 7:53am PDT Furthermore, the watch case and the dial are dovetailed to create a scaled pattern similar to the strap.

His phrase "apna time ayega" is enlivened just with his watch. Ranveer is now the brand ambassador of Franck Muller. On the work front, he recently wrapped up his schedule for '83 and is currently working on a new project, Jayesh Bhai Jordhar. © Viral Bhayani For his outfit, he made a head-turning statement in Gaurav Gupta ensemble and Saint Laurent shoes.

  2. PUBG is, without a doubt, one of the most popular battle royale titles of all time. Well, the game developer PUBG Corp. just proved its worth by reporting $920 million in revenue in its first full year since the 1.0 launch, which roughly translates to nearly Rs 6,400 crores. Not just revenue, PUBG Corp. also saw huge profits of a whopping $310 million (roughly Rs 2,143 cr). That's an insane figure considering the fact that these numbers were achieved in just a year. Seriously, just imagine how many chicken dinners you could buy! © PUBG Corp. PUBG was apparently most popular in Asia, and it looks like over 50-percent of the game's revenue came from that region. North America and Europe were other big contributors to PUBG Corp's revenues. These numbers, in case you are wondering, came via VG247, and the report noted that the PC version of the game earned the developer $790 million (roughly Rs 5,400 cr) in 2019. Surprisingly, the numbers from the console and mobile versions of the game were similar. © PUBG Corp. We're looking at about $60 million and $64 million for console and mobile, respectively. It's, however, worth noting that PUBG Mobile is developed by Tencent Games, and it's likely to be cashing in the most from the mobile port of the game.
  3. We have often heard the wise say that hope is the biggest weapon when it comes to surviving adversities. Till the time one can hope, they possess the means to survive and emerge a victor. If you are wondering what is the point behind that piece of 'gyaan' we just passed on, well we are trying to make a point. And this point involves a very sensitive (if you will) issue - minorities. Be it ethnic, racial or religious, minorities exist in every part of the world. However, their treatment in every part of the world is pretty much identical. © Twitter Right from facing challenges within the education systems, employment opportunities, to dietary and dressing choices, as well as the disputes one faces with regards to identity and a sense of belonging, most minorities around the world have it tough, more often than not. So, bearing those aspects in mind and the fact that even in India we often hear minority groups crying foul for a number of reasons, Pakistan Prime Minister's decision to do something for the Hindu minorities in the state, comes as positive news. © Twitter Imran Khan decided to finally walk the talk and do something concrete for the Hindu minority residing in the country where he enjoys the title of Prime Minister. Now, in a bid to keep his promise to the Hindus in the country, the federal government led by Imran Khan recently announced that they have decided to restore and reopen over 400 Hindu temples across the country and hand them over to the Hindus. © Twitter This not only comes as a gesture of peace and inclusivity but also sparks a ray of hope for all the minority groups around the world. They can now hope for their leaders to follow the lead and spare them a second look, and perhaps take a few tips on how to cater to the needs of the minorities. However, since there are a lot of temples in Pakistan (some of which have been destroyed and lay abandoned since long), the government will be restoring two temples every year. Starting with the temples in Sialkot and Peshawar, which has a functioning Jagannath temple, and a 1000-year-old, abandoned Shivalaya Teja Singh temple, the Pakistan government plans to refurbish all 400 temples on its land. © Twitter According to The Logical Indian report, an All-Pakistan Hindu Rights Movement (APHRM) survey showed since 1990 close to 408 out of the 428 temples have been converted into restaurants, schools, and offices. However, as per a recent survey conducted by the Pakistan government, 11 temples were located in Sindh, four in Punjab, three in Balochistan and two in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which are operational as of 2019. © Twitter People are also looking at it as a peace gesture for India's consideration, since it's coming from the Pakistan PM directly. We cannot help but wonder what Indian politicians will make of that, given that only months ago in February this year, a few unidentified vandals destroyed a Hindu temple in Pakistan's Sindh province and even set the holy books and idols on fire. Hindus came out in protest after the incident, following which Imran Khan ordered for swift action. We can only hope that this recent development from the Pakistan government comes in complete honesty and goodwill, which could then succeed in setting a great example for the rest of the world.
  4. Earlier this summer, Cristiano Ronaldo sent shockwaves across the footballing world after announcing that he was seeking a move away from Real Madrid right after their UEFA Champions League title triumph. With many potential suitors in fray to secure his services, it was eventually Juventus who shelled out 100 million euros to rope in the five-time Ballon d'Or winner. But, Ronaldo's beginning with the Italian club hasn't quite been what many had anticipated. The Portuguese initially struggled to find the back of the net, going goalless in 320 minutes across three games before breaking the drought with a brace against Sassuolo. Goals then came against Frosinone, Udinese and now Genoa, alongside his five assists. After treading with caution early on with Juve, Ronaldo was getting to his prolific best when the allegations of rape against him began doing the rounds in the media. While his public image did take a hit, Ronaldo didn't let it affect his performance on the pitch. Reuters In September, the 33-year-old was named the Most Valuable Player of the month for Juventus. And, more recently, the modern-day footballing great etched his name in the history books for yet another individual milestone. The Portuguese superstar scored his fifth goal for Juventus after opening the scoring against Genoa. And, in the process, he became the first footballer ever to score 400 goals across Europe's top five leagues. Ronaldo achieved the feat in the 17th minute of the Serie A clash when he tapped the ball from close range following a Juventus corner. The goal allowed Ronaldo to notch up his 400th goal in his 497th appearance across Europe's top five leagues. Apart from his five goals for Juventus, Ronaldo boasts of 84 strikes for Manchester United and 311 for his old club Real Madrid. Reuters His iconic goal against Genoa also put him in the elite list of footballers who have scored 400 career league goals - Josef Bican (518), Ferenc Puskas (514), Jimmy McGory (410) and Uwe Seeler (406). Apart from that, Ronaldo has also edged past his arch-rival Lionel Messi who is currently at 389 goals in 426 appearances. Following a brilliant week, Ronaldo's eyes will now be set on enthralling the hallowed Old Trafford with a sublime performance when his side Juventus locks horns with Manchester United in the Champions League group-stage clash on 24th October.

  8. Police outside a school in England. Photo: Terry Harris More than 400 schools across England were caught in a series of bomb threats on Monday morning. According to The Guardian, Humberside police said more than 400 schools and colleges across the country, including 19 in its region, had received emails ?claiming a device has been planted and demanding cash?. Following this, dozens of schools were evacuated as a precaution. The emails believed to have come from the United States were sent to schools across the UK. Schools in London, Yorkshire, Humberside and Northumbria were all sent the threat and there were similar reports in Suffolk and Essex. Northumbria Police confirmed more than 35 schools in its region received emails threatening to detonate explosives on their grounds if cash was not handed over. ?Schools have been visited by police to reassure them that the incident is being treated as hoax and address any concerns,? Northumbria Police said in a statement. "The emails inform the school that a bomb has been placed on the grounds and will be detonated if they don't hand over cash. Detectives have looked into the emails, which appear to originate from the US, and can confirm there is no viable threat,? the statement added. Police officers visited the schools to reassure pupils and staff. The Metropolitan Police issued a statement saying, "Police are investigating reports of communications made to a number of schools across London today, Monday, 19 March. There have been no arrests. Enquiries are ongoing.".
  9. Do you remember the longest time you've gone without masturbating? Maybe it's time to think about it now. Masturbating is a normal part of life and is even extremely healthy according to a lot of studies. But, it turns out that there is also a movement that promotes the benefits of abstaining from masturbation for long periods of time. It became popular on Reddit after a thread linked this movement to a Chinese study which basically claimed that not masturbating could raise your testosterone by 45 percent. Well, that sounds incredible, doesn't it? Taking up this challenge, Luke Eilers decided to see how long he could hold off on 'touching himself'. The movement is appropriately called the 'No Fap Movement' and the biggest thing that motivated Luke was the realization that he was addicted to porn. He admitted that he felt a lot of shame when he finished watching some racy adult videos. Moreover, he also realized that he suffered from a lack of motivation, focus and productivity. Talking about this with fellow YouTuber Andrew Hales, Luke explains how he feels since he started his journey: “The way I would describe it is I kind of just feel like 10 percent better in loads of areas like motivation, confidence, energy, mental clarity. Lots of people talk about superpowers and it completely changes their life; every once in a while, I would get spurts of that.” But only 10% in more than a year? Maybe next time he can abstain for like 4,000 days to complete the 100%. Luke also made sure to clarify that even though he didn't 'pleasure himself'; he still had *** and even looked at porn, but strictly no masturbation. Apparently, as long as you're ejaculating with a partner then that's considered 'healthy'. He also mentioned that he had discovered a new kind of *** where both the people get down and dirty really slowly for more than an hour, but never actually complete the act. He hasn't tried that yet, but he's very interested to find out how it works. But, one of the best things that came out of his 'no fap' experiment was that because of these behavioural and physiological changes, Luke has taken it upon himself to go into amateur therapy via Skype in order to help out guys who are struggling with porn addiction, depression, social anxiety or who just want to talk about women. Such a noble thing to do. Andrew, the guy who interviewed Luke, also saw some changes in himself after trying out the 'No Fap Movement' for just 9 days. Wow, this thing works quickly. So, are you ready to take up this challenge or not?
  10. WASHINGTON: Over 400 US Marines involved in battling Daesh in Syria are being withdrawn as part of a cut in forces after the capture of militant "capital" Raqqa, the US-led coalition said Thursday. The Marines had deployed to Syria in March and used 155mm howitzers to support local forces as they fought to retake Raqqa. "With the city liberated and ISIS on the run, the unit has been ordered home. Its replacements have been called off," the coalition said in a statement. The coalition's director of operations Brigadier General Jonathan Braga called the move "a real sign of progress" as the militants have seen the vast swathes of ground they seized across Syria and Iraq in 2014 reduced to just a few remaining pockets. "We're drawing down combat forces where it makes sense, but still continuing our efforts to help Syrian and Iraqi partners maintain security," Braga said in the statement. A recent report from the Pentagon's Defense Manpower Data Center said that as of September 30, the US military had 1,720 troops in Syria and 8,892 in Iraq. Those numbers were far above the officially released figure of 503 in Syria and 5,262 in Iraq, and even after the announcement of the Marine withdrawal, that supposed 503 figure hadn´t budged. An alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), retook Raqqa from the militants in October after a brutal onslaught supported by artillery and air power from the US-led coalition. The international group - which began targeting the militants in 2014 - is still supporting the militia in an operation in neighboring Deir Ezzor province. The Syrian government backed by Russian firepower is currently conducting a separate offensive in the same region. As operations change from taking back territory to more of a counter-insurgency, the need for equipment like heavy artillery has diminished, Pentagon spokesman Major Adrian Rankine-Galloway said. Now the goal is more to "train local security forces to defend their territory," he said. 'Adjustments to military support' Since Raqqa's capture, coalition strikes have dropped off drastically and, under pressure from Turkey, Washington has promised "adjustments to the military support" for the SDF. Kurdish officials have, however, insisted that cooperation will continue between the two sides, while the US has said coalition forces do not expect to end their mission until a peace deal is negotiated in Syria. In a separate statement released Thursday the coalition said that 801 civilians had been killed unintentionally in the more than 28,000 air strikes it has conducted and that it is still probing 695 reported incidents. Monitoring group Airwars insists that number is well below the true civilian toll of the bombing campaign, estimating that almost 6,000 innocent lives have been lost. As the "caliphate" the militants declared now looks set to be wiped off the map, there are major questions over what comes next in Syria's complex war that has claimed over 340,000 lives since 2011. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad - and his main backers Iran and Russia - now have clear military superiority in the country and international players led by Moscow are making their most concerted push to halt hostilities. But any progress towards an overall political settlement remains fraught with obstacles and UN-backed talks involving the regime and opposition currently taking place in Geneva have been clouded by major disagreements.
  11. Pakistan Blind Cricket team/File photo ISLAMABAD: Pakistan would be supplying 400 cricket balls for the Cricket World Cup of the Blind scheduled to be held in Pakistan and UAE in January 2018. Talking to APP, Pakistan Blind Cricket Council (PBCC) chairman Syed Sultan Shah said besides the World Cup, all blind cricket playing nations are using Pakistan-manufactured blind cricket balls. ?Recently Australia and England had requested us for 1,000 cricket balls, each. We had sent 500 cricket balls to both the countries and as many are yet to be supplied,? he said. Sultan said that the schedule of the World Cup will be announced on November 15. ?If Asian teams make it to the final of the World Cup than the final would be held in Pakistan but if European teams qualify for the top honour then it would be played in UAE,? he said. He said the Nepalese team would be participating in the World Cup for the first time. ?The South African team will not participate in the World Cup while the other participating seven teams include Pakistan, West Indies, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and Australia,? he said. The national team for the World Cup will be announced on November 24. ?As many as 24 matches of the World Cup will be played in UAE while 7 matches will be played in Pakistan,? he said. Pakistan have won two Blind World Cups in 2002 and 2006, while the other two were won by South Africa (1998) and India (2014).
  12. geo_embedgallery DHAKA: Bangladesh restricted the movement of Rohingya refugees Saturday, banning them from leaving overcrowded border areas where over 400,000 who have fled violence in neighbouring Myanmar are living in squalid conditions. The tough new measures came as Dhaka struggled to cope with the scale of the "unprecedented crisis", with Bangladesh's Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina heading for the UN General Assembly to plead for global help. Conditions are already worsening in Bangladesh's southeastern border district of Cox's Bazar, where the majority of refugees are living in desperate circumstances after fleeing Myanmar's violence-wracked Rakhine state. Dozens of refugees were found by authorities in three towns hundreds of kilometres from the Myanmar frontier, stoking fears that thousands of newly arrived Rohingya Muslims could move from the border region and overwhelm the mainland of impoverished Bangladesh. Police said they have issued an order banning the Rohingya refugees from leaving the areas and camps the government has designated for them in the border district. "They should stay in the designated camps until they return to their country," Sahely Ferdous ? a police spokeswoman ? said in a statement. "They cannot travel from one place to another by roads, railways or waterways." Rohingya were asked not to take shelter in the homes of their friends or acquaintances, while locals have been asked not to rent houses to the refugees, and bus and lorry drivers requested not to transport the Rohingya, she said. Police check posts and surveillance have been set up in key transit points to stop refugees travelling to other parts of the country. The restrictions were announced as the United Nations said Saturday the total number of people to have entered Bangladesh in the past month had reached 409,000 ? a leap of 18,000 in a day. International pressure Hasina left for the UN meeting a day after her government summoned the Myanmar envoy for the third time to protest over its neighbour's actions. The Bangladeshi premier is to demand more pressure on Myanmar during talks in New York. She is to speak at the United Nations on Thursday. "She will seek immediate cessation of violence in Rakhine state in Myanmar and ask the UN secretary general to send a fact-finding mission to Rakhine," Nazrul Islam ? a spokesman for the prime minister ? told AFP. "She will also call the international community and the UN to put pressure on Myanmar for the repatriation of all the Rohingya refugees to their homeland in Myanmar," he said. Foreign Minister A.H. Mahmood Ali said, "We will continue international pressure on the Myanmar government to immediately end its ongoing ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya." In Paris, several hundred people including members of the Rohingya diaspora protested near the Eiffel Tower Saturday to demand international intervention and denounce Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The demonstrators urged the former dissident to break her silence on the Rohingya crisis. If not, according to one placard, her Nobel Peace Prize should be renamed the "Nobel Massacre and Hatred Prize". Suu Kyi is due to give a televised address to the nation on Tuesday. 'Suffering is deepening' Most Rohingya, who spent days trekking cross-country from Rakhine to reach the Bangladesh border, have arrived to find desperate conditions, with existing camps overflowing, and have instead settled on muddy roadsides. The UN said two children and a woman were killed in a "rampage" when a private group handed out clothes near a camp on Friday. The three refugee deaths demonstrated warnings by UN agencies and other relief groups that the crisis could get out of control. The World Health Organization and UN children's agency on Saturday launched vaccination campaigns against measles, rubella, and polio. They estimate that 60 percent of the new arrivals are children. Many families do not have a shelter over their heads and refugees have been fighting for food and water deliveries. "The needs are seemingly endless and the suffering is deepening," said UNICEF spokeswoman Marixie Mercado. Outside the giant Balukali camp, Jamila Khatun, 60, sat under a blue plastic bin bag held up by bamboo poles with her children and grandchildren as she recounted her journey to Bangladesh. She said she handed over her jewellery to a Bangladesh boatman two days ago to get across the river frontier from Myanmar. "We walked by night for three or four days to avoid the military and then came over by boat. We don't know what we will do or where we will live but if people here feed us we will stay. We don't want to go back," she told AFP. Nur Khan Liton ? a respected Bangladeshi rights activist working with the refugees in Cox's Bazar ? told AFP, "Refugees are still pouring in. But there is no attempt to bring discipline and order in the aid management." Liton said the Rohingya "have become victims of muggings and extortion" and that cases of diarrhoea are spreading. "I heard that one Rohingya boy has died of diarrhoea." The government has put the army in charge of ferrying foreign relief aid from airports to Cox's Bazar. It also plans to build 14,000 shelters, which it hopes will be enough for 400,000 people. Hasina has ordered the shelters erected within 10 days, Bangladesh's disaster management secretary Shah Kama told AFP. The authorities have sent police reinforcements to Cox's Bazar to protect Buddhist temples in case of a radical Muslim backlash.
  13. A general view shows the Thangkhali refugee camp in Bangladesh´s Cox´s Bazar district. -AFP DHAKA: Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina headed for the UN General Assembly on Saturday to plead for global help coping with the Rohingya crisis, as the refugee deluge escaping a crackdown in Myanmar topped 400,000. The prime minister left a day after her government summoned the Myanmar envoy for the third time to protest over its neighbour´s actions. Hasina is to demand more pressure on Myanmar during talks in New York. Bangladesh has been overwhelmed by Rohingya Muslims since violence erupted in Buddhist-dominated Myanmar´s Rakhine state on August 25. The United Nations said Saturday that the total number of people to have entered Bangladesh having fled the unrest had now reached 409,000, a leap of 18,000 in a day. Conditions are worsening in the border town of Cox´s Bazar where the influx has added to pressures on Rohingya camps already overwhelmed with 300,000 people from earlier waves of refugees. The UN said two children and a woman were killed in a "rampage" when a private group handed clothes near a camp on Friday. Hasina is to speak at the UN on Thursday. "She will seek an immediate cessation of violence in Rakhine state in Myanmar and ask the UN secretary general to send a fact-finding mission to Rakhine," a spokesman for the prime minister, Nazrul Islam, told AFP. "She will also call the international community and the UN to put pressure on Myanmar for the repatriation of all the Rohingya refugees to their homeland in Myanmar," he said. Foreign Minister A.H. Mahmood Ali said: "We will continue international pressure on the Myanmar government to immediately end its ongoing ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya." Backlash fears amid Myanmar tensions As tensions mount between the neighbours, the foreign ministry on Friday summoned the Myanmar charge d´affaires in Dhaka to protest at alleged violations of its airspace by Myanmar drones and helicopter. The ministry warned that the three violations between September 10 and 14 could lead to "unwarranted consequences". Myanmar did not immediately comment. The Bangladesh government earlier protested to the embassy over the planting of landmines near their border, which have killed several Rohingya, and the treatment of the refugees. UN leader Antonio Guterres has also said Myanmar´s treatment of the Rohingya could amount to ethnic cleansing. The deaths of the three refugees backed warnings by UN agencies and other relief groups that the crisis could get out of control. The World Health Organization and UN children´s agency on Saturday launched vaccination campaigns against measles, rubella and polio. They estimate that 60 per cent of the new arrivals are children. Most Rohingya, who spent more than a week trekking cross-country from Rakhine to reach the Bangladesh border, have found existing camps overflowing and have instead settled on muddy roadsides. Many families do not have a shelter over their heads and refugees have been fighting for food and water deliveries. "The needs are seemingly endless and the suffering is deepening," said UNICEF spokeswoman Marixie Mercado. Outside the giant Balukali camp, Jamila Khatun, 60, sat under a blue plastic bin bag held up by bamboo poles with her children and grandchildren as she recounted her journey to Bangladesh.

It also plans to build 14,000 shelters, which it hopes will be enough for 400,000 people. Each shelter can house six refugee families. Hasina has ordered the shelters erected within 10 days, Bangladesh´s disaster management secretary Shah Kama told AFP. The authorities have sent police reinforcements to Cox´s Bazar to protect Buddhist temples in case of a radical Muslim backlash.
  14. File Photo-Reuters SOUTH OF MOSUL, IRAQ: Iraqi authorities are holding 1,400 foreign wives and children of suspected Daesh fighters after government forces expelled the group from one of its last remaining strongholds in Iraq, security and aid officials said. Most came from Turkey. Many others were from former Soviet states, such as Tajikistan, Azerbaijan and Russia, Iraqi army and intelligence officers said. Other Asians and a ?very few? French and Germans were also among them. The wives and children are being held at an Iraqi camp south of Mosul. Most had arrived since Aug. 30, when Iraqi troops drove Daesh out of Mosul. One intelligence officer said that they were still in verifying their nationalities with their home countries, since many of the women no longer had their original documents. It is the largest group of foreigners linked to Daesh to be held by Iraqi forces since they began driving the militants from Mosul and other areas in northern Iraq last year, an aid official said. Thousands of foreigners have been fighting for Islamic State, or Daesh, in Iraq and Syria. ?We are holding the Daesh families under tight security measures and waiting for government orders on how to deal with them,? said Army Colonel Ahmed al-Taie from Mosul?s Nineveh operation command. ?We treat them well. They are families of tough criminals who killed innocents in cold blood, but when we interrogated them we discovered that almost all of them were mislead by a vicious Daesh propaganda,? he said. Reuters reporters saw hundreds of the women and children sitting on mattresses crawling with bugs in tents without air-conditioning in what aid workers called a ?militarized site?. Turkish, French and Russian were among the languages spoken. ?I want to go back (to France) but don?t know how,? said a French-speaking veiled woman of Chechen origin who said she had lived in Paris before. She said she did not know what had happened to her husband, who had brought her to Iraq when he joined Daesh. A security officer said the women and children had mostly surrendered to the Kurdish peshmerga near the northern city of Tal Afar, along with their husbands. The Kurds handed the women and children over to Iraqi forces but kept the men - all presumed to be fighters - in their custody. Many of the families had fled to Tal Afar after Iraqi troops pushed Daesh out of Mosul. Iraqi forces retook Tal Afar, a city of predominantly ethnic Turkmen that produced some of Daesh?s senior commanders, last month. Most of its pre-war population of 200,000 have fled. An interior ministry official said Iraq wanted to negotiate with embassies the return of the women and children. ?We can?t keep this number in our custody for a long time,? he said. Officials had counted so far at least 13 nationalities, said Army Lieutenant Colonel Salah Kareem. Tensions Aid workers and the authorities are worried about tensions between Iraqis, who lost their homes and are also living in the camp, and the new arrivals. Many Iraqis want revenge for the harsh treatment they received under the extremists? interpretation of Sunni Islam, which they imposed in Mosul and the other areas they seized in 2014. ?The families are being kept to one side (of the camp) for their own safety,? an Iraqi military intelligence officer said. The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), which is supporting the 541 women and their children, said Iraq ?must swiftly move to clarify its future plans for these individuals?. ?Like all those fleeing conflict, it is imperative that these individuals are able to access protection, assistance, and information,? NRC said in a statement. ?They are in de-facto detention.? Western officials are worried about radicalised fighters and their relatives coming home after the collapse of Daesh?s ?caliphate?. French officials have indicated a preference for citizens found to be affiliated with Daesh to be prosecuted in Iraq. ?The general philosophy is that adults should go on trial in Iraq,? a French diplomatic source told Reuters last month, of those found to have been fighters. ?We think children would benefit from judicial and social services in France.? ?Tricked? The women in the camp were cooking noodles or lying on mattresses with their babies in the hot tents. Many were still wearing the black abayas and face veils, which were mandatory in areas the militants controlled. ?My mother doesn?t even know where I am,? said a 27-year-old French woman of Algerian descent. She said she had been tricked by her husband into coming with him through Turkey into Syria and then Iraq when he joined Daesh last year. ?I had just given birth to this little girl three months before,? she said holding the infant and asking not to be named. ?He said ?let?s go for a week?s holiday in Turkey.? He had already bought the plane tickets and the hotel.? After four months in Mosul, she ran away from her husband to Tal Afar in February. She was hoping to make it back to France but he found her and would not let her leave. She tearfully recounted how her five-year-old son was killed in June by a rocket while playing in the streets. ?I don?t understand why he did this to us,? she said of her husband, who she said was killed fighting in Mosul. ?Dead or alive - I couldn?t care less about him.? She and a few other families had walked for days to surrender at a Kurdish peshmerga checkpoint beyond al-Ayadiyah, a town near Tal Afar where the militants made their last stand. ?We were getting bombed, shelled and shot at,? she said. Kurdish officials said dozens of fighters surrendered after the fall of Tal Afar but gave no details. One Tal Afar resident said he had seen between 70 and 80 fighters fleeing the town in the final days of the battle.
  15. COPENHAGEN: Lego said it would lay off 8 percent of its staff and revamp its business after reporting its first fall in sales in more than a decade on Tuesday. The Danish toymaker announced a 5-percent decline in mid-year revenue a month after abruptly removing its chief executive, suggesting it is facing its biggest test since flirting with bankruptcy in the early 2000s. Lego said it could not promise a return to growth in the next two years, a jolting acknowledgement for a group widely admired for embracing the digital era and tying up lucrative franchises from Harry Potter to Minecraft. ?We have now pressed the reset-button for the entire group,? executive chairman Jorgen Vig Knudstorp said, acknowledging the business had grown too complicated. He would seek a return to a leaner and more efficient organisation to respond to ?losing momentum ... which we think could ultimately lead to stagnation or even decline.? Lego said revenues had disappointed in its core markets of the United States and Europe, after a decade of double-digit growth and launches spanning Lego sets, video games, movie franchises, robotics and smartphone applications. Sales related to its Star Wars line declined slightly in the first half of the year, the company said. SHARP REVERSAL It marked a sharp reversal for a company that managed to expand and respond to rising demand in Asia when Knudstorp was CEO, even as the global toy market shrank after the 2008 financial crisis. Knudstorp, took the top job aged 35 in 2004, a year after Lego flirted with bankruptcy, and set about reviving Lego?s core business. That included firing consultants and hiring new designers to come up with higher-margin products that were up to date but still looked like Lego, an abbreviation of the Danish ?leg godt?, meaning ?play well?. Bali Padda took over as chief executive in January, but the Briton was removed just eight months later and replaced by Danish industrialist Niels B. Christiansen. ?I am very much accountable for the situation and for the results we?re sharing today,? Knudstorp said. Sales between January and June stood at 14.9 billion Danish crowns ($2.38 billion), still topping My Little Pony producer Hasbro Inc?s sales of $1.82 billion and Barbie doll maker Mattel Inc?s $1.71 billion. Last year, revenue growth slowed from 25 percent in 2015 to just six percent. Lego said it would cut approximately 1,400 positions - including up to 600 at its headquarter in Billund, Denmark - the majority of them before the end of 2017. The company currently employs 18,200 people. ?We?ve been through a decade of very high growth and during those years we have invested a great deal,? Knudstorp said, noting that the company added more than 7,000 new positions between 2012 and 2016. ?We have now realised that we have built an increasingly complex organization to a degree that makes it difficult for us to realise our growth potential,? he added. ?What we have unfortunately recently seen is that despite the continued high level of investment, these have not materialised into a good harvest.? The unlisted company said in March that mid-single-digit growth rates were more realistic for the years to come, but revised those expectations downward on Tuesday. ?We are not saying specifically whether we will grow the next two years or not,? Knudstorp said.
  16. SanDisk has broken all records by announcing a new microSD that can store almost 400GB of data and it is tiny as f**k. The new 400GB SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I card is the world's highest capacity storage card and will be used as a peripheral for Android Devices. Android's Oreo version allows users to use a microSD card as native internal storage which will allow users to install apps, store photos and audio. The new version will enable the microSD to be used as if you were using a built-in flash memory drive. Now you might be wondering this might not be impressive, but let us point out that this is three times the amount of storage that comes with an entry-level MacBook Pro. You can store more content on this fingernail-sized card than most entry-level laptops. Previously, the world's largest microSD card could only store 256GB of data which is roughly half the size of this powerhouse. It has taken SanDisk only two years to develop a card that is almost double the size and can store up to 2 lakh HDR photos. (c) SanDisk The speed appears to come with a tradeoff. SanDisk trumpets its A1 speed rating, saying: “Rated A1, the SanDisk Ultra® microSD card is optimised for apps, delivering faster app launch and performance that provides a better smartphone experience.”Being a brand new product, you can store up to 40 hours worth of 1080p video content and the card doesn't cost an astronomical amount either. The mircoSD costs $250 (INR 16,000) and comes with a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty. If you are planning to buy the Galaxy Note 8, this card will be its best friend.
  17. Rohingya refugees stands in an open place during heavy rain, as they are hold by Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) after illegally crossing the border, in Teknaf, Bangladesh, August 31, 2017 - Reuters COX'S BAZAR, Bangladesh: Nearly 400 people have died in fighting that has rocked Myanmar's northwest for a week, new official data shows, making it probably the deadliest bout of violence to engulf the country's Rohingya Muslim minority in decades. Around 38,000 Rohingya have crossed into Bangladesh from Myanmar, United Nations sources said, a week after Rohingya insurgents attacked police posts and an army base in Rakhine state, prompting clashes and a military counteroffensive. "As of August 31, 38,000 people are estimated to have crossed the border into Bangladesh," the officials said on Friday, in their latest estimate. The army says it is conducting clearance operations against "extremist terrorists" and security forces have been told to protect civilians. But Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh say a campaign of arson and killings aims to force them out. The treatment of Myanmar's roughly 1.1 million Rohingya is the biggest challenge facing national leader Aung San Suu Kyi, accused by some Western critics of not speaking out for a minority that has long complained of persecution. The clashes and ensuing army crackdown have killed about 370 Rohingya insurgents, but also 13 security forces, two government officials and 14 civilians, the Myanmar military said on Thursday. By comparison, communal violence in 2012 in Sittwe, the capital of Rakhine, led to the killing of nearly 200 people and the displacement of about 140,000, most of them Rohingya. The fighting is a dramatic escalation of a conflict that has simmered since October, when similar but much smaller Rohingya attacks on security posts prompted a brutal military response dogged by allegations of rights abuses. Myanmar evacuated more than 11,700 "ethnic residents" from the area affected by fighting, the army said, referring to the non-Muslim population of northern Rakhine. More than 150 Rohingya insurgents staged fresh attacks on security forces on Thursday near villages occupied by Hindus, the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar said, adding that about 700 members of such families had been evacuated. "Four of the terrorists were arrested, including one 13-year-old boy," it said, adding that security forces had arrested two more men near a Maungdaw police outpost on suspicion of involvement in the attacks. About 20,000 more Rohingya trying to flee are stuck in no man's land at the border, the UN sources said, as aid workers in Bangladesh struggle to alleviate the sufferings of a sudden influx of thousands of hungry and traumatized people. While some Rohingya try to cross by land, others attempt a perilous boat journey across the Naf River separating the two countries. Bangladesh border guards found the bodies of 15 Rohingya Muslims, 11 children among them, floating in the river on Friday, area commander Lt. Col. Ariful Islam told Reuters. That takes to about 40 the total of Rohingya known to have died by drowning.
  18. On one hand, where some people didn't think twice before putting others' lives in danger and even killed some for a man convicted as a rapist; this cop from Madhya Pradesh, on the other hand, put his life on the line and ran with a 10kg bomb to save the lives of as many as 400 children. Abhishek Patel, a head constable in Madhya Pradesh's Sagar district, with his extraordinary courage proved that one doesn't need superpowers to save the world. Keeping this attitude in mind, Patel tucked a 10kg bomb in his arms and sprinted 1km in a direction away from the residential areas. “My only objective was to take it away as far from the children as possible. Far away from all residential areas,” Patel reportedly said while trying to catch his breath after his nonstop run. © BCCL The unexplored artillery shell was found on Friday morning in a school in Sagar's Chitora village. The police too responded swiftly after an unknown source informed them of this incident. According to the report published in The Times Of India, Ajay Kumar, school's senior teacher said “Police saw the bomb and immediately asked us to close for the day, almost two hours early. We asked the students to leave at once.” Amid all the tension with so many lives at stake, Patel came forward picked the bomb and started running. After coming back, Patel explained that he was a part of a police drill a few months ago, where a similar bomb was spotted and they had to run with it. He further added, “Had it exploded, we were told, it would have damaged a radius of 500 meters. I was afraid it would blow up and decided to take it as far away as possible.” While the entire incident looks like it was taken out directly from an action movie, Patel's efforts are truly commendable. In fact, there are many who are drawing parallels between this incident and Tom Hank's ‘Forrest Gump'. However, the shell hasn't been defused yet and it's still unkown how a bomb that big a size managed to make its way into a school. The case is being investigated. Patel's courage will be acknowledged with a reward of Rs. 50,000. Source: The Times Of India
  19. Rescue workers search for survivors after a mudslide in the Mountain town of Regent, Sierra Leone, August 14, 2017. Sierra Leone Red Cross/Handout via REUTERS FREETOWN: Rescue workers have recovered nearly 400 bodies from a mudslide in the outskirts of Sierra Leone's capital Freetown, the chief coroner said on Tuesday, as morgues struggled to find space for all the dead. Dozens of houses were buried when a mountainside collapsed in the town of Regent on Monday morning ? one of the deadliest natural disasters in Africa in recent years. President Ernest Bai Koroma urged residents of Regent and other flooded areas around Freetown to evacuate immediately so that military personnel and other rescue workers could continue to search for survivors who might be buried underneath debris. "As the search continues, we have collected nearly 400 bodies ? but we anticipate more than 500," chief coroner Seneh Dumbuya told Reuters. Hundreds of other people are missing, aid agencies said. Bodies continued to arrive at Freetown's overwhelmed central morgue on Tuesday. Corpses were lying on the floor and on the ground outside for lack of room, a Reuters witness said. "Our problem here is space. We are trying to separate, quantify, and examine quickly and then we will issue death certificates before the burial," said Owiz Koroma, head of the morgue, who also estimated the death toll to be in the hundreds. To relieve pressure on the morgue, authorities and aid agencies were preparing to bury the bodies in four different cemeteries across Freetown, said Idalia Amaya, an emergency response coordinator for Catholic Relief Services. The burials are expected to take place on Thursday, government spokesman Cornelius Deveaux said. Medecins Sans Frontieres is providing hundreds of body bags to authorities that the medical charity kept in Sierra Leone after the 2014-16 Ebola outbreak which killed 4,000 people in the former British colony. Fear of disease Sierra Red Cross Society spokesman Abu Bakarr Tarawallie said by phone he estimated that at least 3,000 people were homeless and in need of shelter, medical assistance and food. The Red Cross said another 600 were missing. "We are also fearful of outbreaks of diseases such as cholera and typhoid," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation from Freetown. "We can only hope that this does not happen." Contaminated water and water-logging often lead to potentially deadly diseases like cholera and diarrhoea after floods and mudslides. Crowds of people gathered, waiting for news of missing family members. "I've been looking for my aunt and her two children, but so far no word about them," said a tearful Mohamed Jalloh. He said he feared the worst. President Koroma said in a television address on Monday evening that rescue centres had been set up around the capital to register and assist victims. Bulldozers dug through mud and rubble at the foot of Mount Sugar Loaf, where many residents had been asleep when part of the mountainside collapsed. The government said a number of illegal buildings had been erected in the area.
  20. Unicredit bank logo is seen in the old city centre of Siena, Italy June 29, 2017. Photo: Reuters File MILAN: Suspected hackers have accessed client data of Italy's biggest lender, UniCredit, in two attacks in the past 10 months and affected about 400,000 Italian customers, the most serious data breach ever reported by a major Italian lender. No passwords were stolen in the attacks, which first occurred in September and October of 2016 and again in June and July of this year, but personal and banking details could have been accessed, UniCredit said in a statement. The attacks were carried out through an external commercial partner, which UniCredit did not identify. Wednesday's statement also did not describe how the intruders accessed the data nor when the bank became aware of the first intrusion. A source familiar with the matter said the bank had only uncovered the data breaches between Monday and Tuesday. "The bank immediately adopted all necessary measures to prevent a repeat of such intrusions," the bank said, adding that it had notified law-enforcement authorities. The head of UniCredit's information technology unit, Daniele Tonella, said none of the data accessed by the attackers allowed any financial transaction to be carried out. "We don't know why this data was acquired," he told Reuters, adding that it also did not know who was behind the attacks. Attacks on banks in recent years have become more sophisticated and resulted in mounting financial losses. They have evolved beyond data breaches, in which personal information are stolen, to include denial-of-service attacks which have knocked out access to online banking services for up to several days and even intrusions into core banking systems. Last November, attackers stole more than 2.5 million pounds ($3.25 million) from Tesco Bank in Britain's largest disclosed cyber heist. UniCredit shares were down 0.9 percent at 16.87 euros in late morning trade.
  21. Family members of detainees line up to enter the federal court just before a hearing to consider a class-action lawsuit filed on behalf of Iraqi nationals facing deportation, in Detroit, Michigan, US, June 21, 2017. REUTERS/Rebecca Cook DETROIT: A federal judge in Michigan on Monday halted the deportation of more than 1,400 Iraqi nationals detained during immigration sweeps across the United States last month, the latest legal victory for the detainees in a closely watched case. US District Judge Mark Goldsmith granted a preliminary injunction requested by lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union, who argued the immigrants would face persecution in Iraq because they are considered ethnic and religious minorities there. Goldsmith said the injunction provides detainees time to challenge their removal in federal courts. He said many of them faced "a feverish search for legal assistance" after their deportation orders were unexpectedly resurrected by the US government after several years. Goldsmith said the extra time assures "that those who might be subjected to grave harm and possible death are not cast out of this country before having their day in court," Goldsmith wrote in his 34-page opinion and order.
  22. TOKYO: At least 10 people were missing, including a child, and 400,000 were forced from their homes after record rains battered southwestern Japan for a second day on Thursday, sending rivers surging over their banks, a government official and media said. Parts of Fukuoka prefecture on the southwestern island of Kyushu were hit by 774 mm (30.5 inches) of rain in nine hours on Wednesday, about 2.2 times the amount of rain that falls in a normal July, NHK national television said. Some 7,500 rescuers, including police, firefighters and soldiers from Japan's Self Defence Forces, were mobilized to help with evacuations and search for the missing. Forty helicopters were on standby until the weather improved. "There are many reports of people whose safety cannot be confirmed, things like 'a child was swept away by the river' and 'my house was swept away and I can't get in touch with my parents'," chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga told an emergency early morning news conference. "We will keep in close contact with the disaster-hit areas and work with all our energy to save lives and ascertain the extent of the damage," he said. Fukuoka and Oita prefectures, both largely rural areas, were the worst-hit by the rain, which was caused by a low pressure area on the Pacific Ocean that fed warm, moist air into Japan's seasonal rainy front. Residents spent a worried night at evacuation centers set up at schools and government buildings on high ground amid reports of landslides and flooded roads. "It wasn't just the rain, there was thunder and lightning too. I couldn't see anything ahead of me," one woman at an evacuation center told NHK. A schoolboy sitting with his family told NHK: "I haven't heard from some of my friends, and I'm really worried." There were no immediate reports of major transportation problems, but television footage showed a railway line left broken and twisted by floodwaters. The same area was pounded by heavy rain earlier this week from Tropical Storm Nanmadol, which has since passed out to sea. The rain in Japan comes on the heels of a storm system that caused severe flooding across southern China that killed 56 people and cost almost $4 billion in damage.
