Indian Police on Thursday seized balloons with ?I love Pakistan? written on them from a shop and arrested the two shopkeepers in Kanpur, Indian media reported. According to the police, advocate Ajai Pratap Singh, who is associated with an extremist militant Hindu group, noticed the balloons at a shop in the Govind Nagar area when he visited the store to shop for his son?s birthday. Singh ?immediately passed on the information to Govind Nagar police who swung into action and detained the retail vendor and supplier,? said the Indian news agency PTI. Police have registered a complaint about making assertions prejudicial to national integration under the Indian Penal Code. The detained persons said that they purchased the balloons from ?Gubbarey Wali Gali? in Sadar Bazar, the biggest and the oldest wholesale market in Delhi. A team has been sent there for further investigation.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico has struggled to regain communications services. The FCC said on Friday that 83 percent of cell sites remain out of service, while wireless communications company are deploying temporary sites. Alphabet, which announced its Project Loon in 2013 to use solar-powered, high-altitude balloons to provide internet service in remote regions, said in an FCC filing it was working to ?support licensed mobile carriers? restoration of limited communications capability? in Puerto Rico. Earlier on Friday, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai announced he was forming a Hurricane Recovery Task Force with an emphasis on addressing challenges facing Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. ?It is critical that we adopt a coordinated and comprehensive approach to support the rebuilding of communications infrastructure and restoration of communications services,? Pai said in a statement. Separately, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello said in a Twitter posting late on Friday that he had a ?great initial conversation with @elonmusk tonight. Teams are now talking; exploring opportunities. Next steps soon to follow.? Musk, the chief executive of Tesla Inc, said on Friday the company would send more battery installers to Puerto Rico to help restore power after Hurricane Maria knocked out all power on the island over two weeks ago. Musk said he was diverting resources from a semi-truck project to fix Model 3 bottlenecks and ?increase battery production for Puerto Rico & other affected areas.? In late September, Tesla said it was sending hundreds of batteries that can store power generated by solar panels to Puerto Rico to provide emergency help in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Photo: Geo News File Results released for citywide population in the provisional census conducted by Pakistan Bureau of Statistics show that Karachi?s population has ballooned to 14.9 million in 2017 as compared to 9.39 million in 1998. Thirty three percent of Sindh?s 47.9 million-strong population lives in the province?s two major cities, Karachi and Hyderabad. While the provincial capital?s population grew by fifty nine percent in nineteen years, Hyderabad?s population only grew by 0.6 million during the same time. Pakistan's total population was recorded at 207.774 million, as per the provisional summary results of the Sixth Population and Housing Census. Punjab ? the largest province in terms of population ? houses 110 million people. The province?s capital, Lahore, witnessed a hundred and sixteen percent growth in population, from 5.1 million in 1998 to 11.12 million in 2017. Other cities in the province recorded minor increases in their respective populations; Faisalabad ? which housed approximately two million people in 1998 ? is now home to 3.2 million residents. Gujranwala?s population increased by 0.89 million while Multan?s population grew from 1.16 million in 1998 to 1.73 million in 2017. The federal capital?s population grew dramatically from 0.5 million in 1998 to 1.01 million in 2017. Population of Islamabad?s twin city, Rawalpindi grew by 0.7 million in nineteen years.

A balloon carries cameras and other equipment that will be used to monitor the coming solar eclipse during a test launch with students and faculty with the College of Charleston for the Space Grant Ballooning Project on board a US Coast Guard response boat at sea near Charleston, South Carolina, US, August 17, 2017. REUTERS/Randall Hill CHARLESTON: Next week's solar eclipse will be streamed live online for the first time, from the vantage point of helium-filled balloons across the United States, providing the public with sky-high views as the moon blocks the sun. A team of researchers from Montana State University has partnered with NASA to participate in the Space Grant Ballooning Project to send more than 50 high-altitude balloons 80,000 feet (24,384 meters) up to capture the solar eclipse as it crosses the country on August 21. "We'll see the variations from coast to coast to see what the eclipse does over landscapes," Cassandra Runyon, director of the South Carolina Space Grant Consortium, said excitedly at a test launch on Thursday. During the eclipse, the moon will pass between the sun and Earth from west to east, and cast a shadow on Earth. On the east coast of Charleston, South Carolina, the last location in the continental United States over which the eclipse will pass, Runyon and her team of professors and students will launch balloons from a U.S. Coast Guard boat five to six nautical miles (9 km to 11 km) offshore. The eclipse shadow was expected to move at 2,000 miles per hour in Oregon and slow down to 1,500 miles per hour in South Carolina, Runyon said. The latex balloons, which are roughly 9 feet (2.7 m) tall when filled with helium, will be equipped with high-definition video cameras, still cameras and computers. They will be launched from roughly 50 U.S. locations and transmit the images back to Earth. The balloons will be filled with enough helium to lift them roughly 1,000 feet per minute reaching an altitude of 80,000 feet. Using a ground station antenna, team members on land will live stream the video online at stream.live/. "I think it's very powerful to have that off-the-earth perspective," said Angela des Jardins, director of the Montana Space Grant Consortium at the Montana State University. Des Jardins said this will be the first time that a solar eclipse will be streamed live online. The project will allow scientists to study the sun's corona and the lunar orbit, providing practical experience for students and making this major scientific event accessible to the public, des Jardins said. The Aug. 21 event marks the first total solar eclipse visible anywhere in the lower 48 states since 1979.
