  1. Online communities shine with the brilliance of humanity. Every day, our communities inspire, evoke, inform, motivate and engage in a hundred different ways. Every member feels a uniquely individual sense of value from your community. For too many communities, the strategy revolves around two simple pillars: content and engagement. You inform. You engage. And you think your job is done. However, you’ve barely scratched the surface of offering value. You need to expand the ways in which you strategically match your community to member value. New studies are coming out that show humans feel up to 27 emotions from admiration to triumph, and the best communities unleash a rainbow spectrum of value – functional and emotional, business to social - for their organizations and for their members. This results in not just deeper and more extensive engagement, but greater financial payoff. Indeed, research from global management consulting firm Bain & Company shows brands like Apple, Samsung, and Amazon that demonstrate multiple elements of value have x3 greater customer loyalty and x4 faster revenue growth than others. The elements of value can be divided into two broad categories. Specialize in Functional Value Don’t deliver content. Deliver time savings, cost savings, risk savings, organization, connection, education, and variety. What is the utility benefit to your users? Functional values are the core reasons why members would visit your community. It forms the baseline rationale for your community’s existence, and you want to not just be good – you want to be the best in delivering functional value in your field. Improve your Q&A boards for feedback, inquiry, or ideation. Provide a template in a pinned topic where users fill out a consistent set of questions, so you can answer with the most appropriate and accurate options. Use moderator tools like Recommended Replies to summarize and spotlight key points in a topic. This saves time and focuses attention on expert information. Super-charge the training for your response team. Empower them to be subject experts by giving them private training, templates, and extra resources in a staff wiki so they can investigate the unique needs of user inquiries and provide the best responses. Build a set of content resources in the Pages application, which is the most powerful application in the suite. It can be used to create a set of content resources with unlimited custom fields, filters, and templates enabling you to offer variety, organization, and education that no other competitor can match. Spark Emotional Value Don’t deliver engagement. Deliver admiration, amusement, awe, empathy, joy, nostalgia, satisfaction, and triumph. How does your community make your members feel better? Here’s a little secret. Even though functional value is the foundation of your community’s value proposition, emotional elements are 50% more valuable. Fortunately, Invision Community comes loaded with ways to recognize, reward, and promote members. Take the time to explain the purpose of a new group promotion, rank, or title. Don’t let the reward be the goal in and of itself. You should connect the feature with its underlying emotion by explaining what steps are required to earn the rank, how many others earned it, and what it’ll take to earn the next one. Start with the Leaderboard. Invision Community ships with the Leaderboard, which provides an overview of the most popular users and content. Scan for up-and-coming members to investigate what triggers their emotional satisfaction; scan for popular content to discover what excites your membership. Create multiple member journeys. Most communities follow a pattern of new member to trusted member to moderator. But members can become superusers in many ways. Members who enjoy nostalgia can organize a Year-in-Review topic. Members who enjoy affiliation should serve as Ambassadors to greet and mentor new members. Members who seek reputation will appreciate new outlets for publishing. Define multiple pathways that strategically tap into the diverse desires of your members. As you implement your initiatives to build a Community of Excellence, take the time to relate the initiative to the Elements of Value (Attachment: IPS Elements of Value Attachment.pdf). You’ll find new and creative ways of offering value to strengthen the relationship between your community and your members. Look deep within your community to unearth the rainbow spectrum of value. You’ll discover a wellspring of extraordinary value waiting to help your members shine brightest.

  3. We often get asked how to create a portal-like home page for a community. A homepage has many benefits including: Showing your best content first By using the "Our Picks" blocks, you can display your best content first. This content sets the tone for the site and will encourage engagement across your site. Display multiple areas of the suite Each application has its own feed blocks that can be used to display content on the home page. If your members use Gallery heavily, then showcase those photos on the homepage. If you use Calendar a lot to schedule events, then show event feeds. By displaying feeds to content is a great way to showcase all areas of your site on a single page. Reduce confusion For those of us that grew up with forums are used to viewing a list of categories and forums. We find it easy to scan the list of forums and dip into the ones that interest us. For those that are not so familiar, a homepage displaying easily accessible content reduces the confusion and invites true content discovery. In this short video, we show you how to create a homepage in under 5 minutes using the Pages app. Pages is available with all Cloud plans and is available to purchase when buying a self-hosting license. This video shows: How to set Pages as the default application How to create a Page Builder page How to configure blocks to fine tune the feeds As you can see, it's a straightforward task, and you do not need to know any programming or design to create a compelling homepage. Do you have a homepage like this? We'd love to see it!
  4. Creating a vibe with someone you like is the first step you need to take to pique their interest in you. I mean, the key to making that vibe more incessant, is to just make her laugh by creating a fun atmosphere. While this may come naturally to some guys, for me, it took a bit of an effort to create that vibe around women in general. You know what I mean? While some guys will make her laugh and have her eating out of their hands, others like me shy away and get confused as to how to make her comfortable and start a good conversation. © Filmkraft Productions Pvt Ltd Sometimes, it feels like men, who do it so easily, have some sort of a secret method they invest in, to get attention from the women they like, and I kept trying to find out what the secret really was. It took me a while to figure out the 3 most basic and important ingredients that keep a healthy vibe alive while talking to a woman, and now, I swear by these three things, because they seem to work for me, every time. It takes a lot of guts to go up to a woman and start talking to her, and for men who have trouble doing that, here are the 3 most basic things to keep in mind, to create a vivacious and a steady vibe, around her. 1. Have A Bit Of Curiosity To create a successful vibe with her, you need to be curious about her, beyond her looks. I mean, you can wonder how the hell is she so cute but apart from that, delve a little deeper and try and be more curious about things like 'how will she react if I flirt with her?' or 'what is funny to her?', 'what things are important to her?' or even 'what turns her on?'. These are all the right questions to be curious about. If you create a sense of curiosity about her through the right questions, then you will never run out of interesting things to talk about, especially when she's the focus of the conversation, hence creating an amiable vibe. 2. Be Bold Be impudent, a little cheeky and slightly irreverent when you're talking to her. Of course, don't go overboard with your boldness and don't start becoming arrogant. Just be playful with your words and if she finds it funny, she will definitely flirt back with you. For instance, this one time I was at a bar with a woman who wore spectacles. I was being a bit forward and 'bold' and I asked her if she leaves her glasses on during ***, because I was eternally curious about women in general wearing specs and whether or not they wore them while having *** (see, ask the right questions!). She humoured me of course because she found the boldness rather endearing and not too arrogant. It also depends on the tonality of whatever you're saying. So be wary of your tone when you're talking to her. Anyway, she replied with a laugh saying she usually loves to keep them on when she's doing it to see better, but she usually takes them off since she's scared they'll get knocked off her face! 3. Just Have FUN Fun is the key ingredient to a good vibe between anyone. If you're a fun guy, you're a winner for sure. She won't be thinking logically like 'is this guy good for me?' or 'where is this going?' when she's having fun with someone. She'll be thinking emotionally instead, and focusing more on 'let's live in this moment because it's so much fun!' Connect with her on her likes and her dislikes. If you know she digs 90s pop songs, maybe go for a drive with her, blasting the songs from the 90s, while you guys are singing them on the top of your lungs. If she likes karaoke, find a good karaoke bar and take her there whenever it happens and just lighten up with her. Having fun is like the currency of good conversations and good company and you can never compromise on that! Fun also means being silly and funny with her. Humour is a go-to for starting a conversation with any woman and upping the vibe a bit. You can be cocky-funny, or lame-funny, slapstick-funny, witty-funny or sarcastic-funny. Chose the funny you'd want to be and just nail it from there! So, now you should put all these three ingredients together when you're approaching someone you really want to talk to, and use them to your advantage to create a vibe she can't resist. After all, it all depends on the vibe you create and as they say, 'good vibes, make your tribe!'
  5. There is no dearth of talent in India. Try throwing the toughest challenge towards us, and we Indians will turn it into something so brilliant, that people will be compelled to bow before us. People here have answers, or should I say 'jugaad', to each and every problem. And no one can understand and appreciate this better than Anand Mahindra. © Reuters The fact that Mahindra is a huge fan of desi jugaad is a well established one, and he's always been vocal about the same. From giving regular shout-outs on his Twitter page, offering to invest in a cobbler's startup to gifting a 4-wheeler to a man that turned his auto into a Scorpio; Mahindra is someone who has always appreciated the talent or jugaad of people. And things weren't any different this time. © Twitter Recently, he came across this man and his jugaad device to sweep the streets and was left in awe of his creativity. And given his brilliant entrepreneurial mind, he immediately thought of creating a museum to display these kinds of devices. He wrote on Twitter, “I have long advocated that India can't settle only for 'jugaad' (make-do) & has to shoot for 'jhakaas' (Mumbai slang for 'brilliant') Still, I would like to create a museum of these fascinating jugaad devices somewhere. Maybe at Mahindra Research Valley in Chennai?” I have long advocated that India can't settle only for 'jugaad' (make-do)& has to shoot for 'jhakaas' (Mumbai slang for 'brilliant')Still, I would like to create a museum of these fascinating jugaad devices somewhere. Maybe at Mahindra Reaearch Valley in Chennai? @RajanWadhera1 ? pic.twitter.com/JBAtieZwdr — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) June 22, 2018 This is not the first time that Anand Mahindra has appreciated people's talent and offered to help them in whatever way possible, and we're sure this won't the last time either. We guess only a great mind can identify the talent and potential of other geniuses.

  7. The best style inspirations are lying in the past, waiting to be uncovered. 'Nostalgia' in fashion, as a concept, is something that tends to make periodic appearances as part of a never-ending cycle, much like the quote 'History repeats itself'. We like revisiting the past and, with fashion, the experience becomes rather literal because of its very nature. We bring back old silhouettes, rediscover the tenets of style that existed in the bygone era, and love wallowing in all things vintage. However, achieving that without having to completely refurbish our wardrobe is a daunting task. This is where Gaurav Khanijo comes in with his gems of sartorial advice - to impart that much-needed wisdom we need, in order to come up with a vintage aesthetic that is hearteningly nostalgia-inducing, yet completely wearable and modern, while incorporating our favourite pair of basic jeans into it. © MensXP / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Gaurav Khanijo is a young Indian designer who specializes in experimenting with silhouettes in men's fashion. His clothes are characterized by a delightful balance of conspicuously unusual, modern tailoring and comfortable, relaxed wearability. His clients include the best dressed men in the industry right now - from Shahid Kapoor to Kartik Aaryan, and if you have been paying attention to their sartorial evolution, you'd know that Gaurav clearly has a vision and he has consistently been pushing boundaries, quite successfully so. Coming back to our topic at hand, let's now focus on how to achieve the super chill vintage aesthetic Gaurav is sporting with our regular pair of jeans. © MensXP / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno According to Gaurav (and we agree), denim is the most versatile fabric and it can be incorporated into any outfit irrespective of the look you're aiming for. Here, our aim is to create a relaxed, chill, wearable vintage look, and here are the steps you need to take for achieving that: 1. Wear your favourite pair of jeans that fits you well, but is not super skinny. Remember, the vibe needs to be relaxed instead of stuck-up. 2. Pair it with a super-relaxed Cuban collar shirt. Also known as 'Revere' or 'Camp' collar shirts, these shirts have that laidback charm that a vintage aesthetic is all about. Bonus points if the shirt is multi-coloured or floral. 3. Wear a pair of Chelsea boots for a sharp, edgy flair. 4. Accessorize the outfit with tinted glasses in a bright colour, and go all out with your favourite wristbands. © MensXP / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno In case you are going for a lunch or dinner that is a rather formal-ish affair, put on your favourite blazer. Just make sure to take the collar of your shirt out. That seemingly trivial twist will add a super playful element to your 'formal' outfit, till it's time for you to take the jacket off and hit the bar. © MensXP / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Try this delightful combination out, so that you can enjoy the rad beach parties of the 70s and 80s - at least vicariously so, through your now sartorial realness. Also, thanks to Gaurav, we can finally start giving our jeans the respect they deserve, and start incorporating them in all of our outfits. '31 Days Of Denim' is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features the finest men in the capital, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

  12. NEW YORK: SoftBank Group Corp?s Vision Fund will invest in creating the world?s biggest solar power project in Saudi Arabia, it said on Tuesday, stepping up its involvement in the kingdom and expanding beyond technology. The project is expected to have the capacity to produce up to 200 gigawatts (GW) by 2030, SoftBank Chief Executive Masayoshi Son told reporters in New York. That would add to around 400 GW of globally installed solar power capacity and is comparable to the world?s total nuclear power capacity of around 390 GW as of the end of 2016. By investing in solar power, Saudi Arabia, the world?s biggest oil exporter, can reduce the amount of crude it currently uses to generate power and increase its overseas shipments. The move illustrates the commitment by the de facto Saudi ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to transform the country?s economic status quo. The final investment total for the 200 GW of generation, including the solar panels, battery storage and a manufacturing facility for panels in Saudi Arabia, will eventually total around $200 billion, Son said.
  13. Umar Ahmed Haque is seen in this undated custody photograph received via the Metropolitan Police, in London, Britain on March 2, 2018. Photo: Metropolitan Police/Handout via Reuters LONDON: A British supporter of Daesh was found guilty on Friday of trying to recruit children he was teaching into an?army? of jihadists to help carry out a wave of attacks across London. Umar Haque, 25, showed the children beheading videos and other violent militant propaganda, forced them to re-enact deadly attacks on the British capital and made them role-play attacking police officers. ?His plan was to create an army of children to assist with multiple terrorist attacks throughout London,? said Dean Haydon, head of the Metropolitan Police?s Counter Terrorism Command.?He tried and he did, we believe, radicalise vulnerable children from the ages of 11 to 14.? Although he had no qualifications and was employed as an administrator, police say Haque used the guise of teaching Islamic studies to groom 110 children into becoming militants at the Lantern of Knowledge, a small private Islamic school, and at a madrassa connected to the Ripple Road Mosque in east London. Abuthaher Mamun is seen in this undated custody photograph received via the Metropolitan Police, in London, Britain on March 2, 2018. Photo: Metropolitan Police/Handout via Reuters Of those children, 35 are now undergoing long-term safeguarding measures involving social services and other authorities. Six of the group gave evidence at Haque?s trial, detailing how he taught them fighting was good and had given them training such as doing push-ups to build their strength. His intention was to use them to attack London targets such as the Big Ben tower, soldiers from the Queen?s Guards, a large shopping centre, banks, and media stations, prosecutors said. Believed to have been self-radicalised online, Haque was inspired by an attack in March last year when Khalid Masood ploughed a rented car into pedestrians on London?s Westminster Bridge, killing four, before stabbing to death a police officer in the grounds of parliament. He had discussed with Abuthaher Mamun ? a 19-year-old who also taught at the mosque ? carrying out a similar attack using guns and a hire car packed with explosives. He had made the children re-enact Masood?s assault and told another co-defendant the public deserved to be annihilated. Role-playing ?He tried to prepare the children for martyrdom by making them role-play terrorist attacks. Part of that role-playing was re-enacting attacking police officers,? Haydon said. ?He had shown them graphic terrorist videos - beheading videos and frightening terrorist activities overseas. He described himself as a loyal follower to IS.? Haydon said the children had been?paralysed by fear? into not telling their parents or teachers, with Haque saying he was part of IS and threatening that they would suffer the same fate as those in the militant videos he showed them. Muhammad Abid is seen in this undated custody photograph received via the Metropolitan Police, in London, Britain on March 2, 2018. Photo: Metropolitan Police/Handout via Reuters However, Haque?s?ambitious?, long-term plans were in an early stage, he said. No issues had been raised at the school - rated outstanding by government inspectors - prior to Haque?s arrest and when it came to light what was going on, police initially met a wall of silence from the children. ?He shouldn?t have been teaching, so that?s a concern,? Haydon said.?We have had challenges with both the local community and some of these institutions.? Haque was found guilty at London?s Old Bailey Court of a number of offences including preparing terrorist acts, having previously pleaded guilty to four charges. Mamun, who police said was involved in fundraising and attack planning, and Muhammad Abid, 27, were also convicted of helping him. They will all be sentenced at a later date.
  14. Goa is one place in the country which is on everyone's holiday list. You could be a college student in Delhi or a bank employee in Bangalore, Goa has always been that one plan with our friends that we want to fulfill, and why not? it has something to offer to everyone who comes visiting. Even though the beaches and the people of the place might be warm and entice you to make another trip just because it is such a friendly, beautiful place, the ministers in the state don't really feel the same. Let me clarify that we understand that people elect a governing body which is state friendly and works for the development but seems like Vijai Sardesai, the minister for town and country planning in Goa has unfiltered thoughts about domestic tourits which are quite bitter in taste as well. © Twitter According to a report in TOI, Mr. Vijai addressed the vital issue of garbage dump in Goa and all the problems that the heavy influx of tourists was causing. While his concern for sanitation and cleanliness was absolutely valid, his choice of words has now earned him major back lash. "We cannot make Goa another Gurugram. The north Indian states are responsible for the problems that Goa has today. The people coming from those states actually want to recreate Haryana in Goa," he said. He also expressed his dismay about how toruists are not concerned about the cleanliness and only contibute in making the beaches dirty. "How are you going to control these people? The north Indian states are responsible for the problems that Goa has today. The people coming from those states actually want to recreate Haryana in Goa", he said. Twitterati was quick to respond to these reports which obviously infuriated a lot of people. Shameful: The Goa minister, Vijai Sardesai, calls North Indians the scum of the earth who are trying to create a Haryana in Goa. — Sonam Mahajan (@AsYouNotWish) February 10, 2018 Vijai Sardesai & His party Goa Forward is really filled with scum. His one minister called Kannadigas "Harami" now he calls North Indians Scum. One more Minister said he don't want domestic tourists in Goa & their supporters call South Indians Ghantis. This party should be banned — Ganesh (@me_ganesh14) February 10, 2018 Mr. Viaji took to Twitter and tried to clarify how he was 'misqouted' but the damage was already done. Quoted out of context by media whilst reporting my speech @ yesterday's GoaBizFest. #Goemkars believe that a certain section of #tourists who have no civic sense & create nuisance , are not welcome to the state. I haven't generalised or have been xenophobic Only spoken for #Goa! pic.twitter.com/MQ6AZ4dYRQ — Vijai Sardesai (@VijaiSardesai) February 10, 2018 No @VijaiSardesai you can't hide behind misquoting by media. You said it, own it up now. You ought to apologise for calling tourists "scum of the earth". You brought down the dignity of the @manoharparrikar@goacm govt. Shame! https://t.co/2sG8n1f612 — Rajesh Menon (@RajeshMenon70) February 10, 2018 People are not liking how he is favouring international tourists and taking a pathetic dig at domestic tourists. I hope he understands that he is also an Indian before being a minister and discrimating regions and using foul language will over shadow any good intentions he might have for Goa. Many are infuriated and are even questioning him if he holds a European passport that is allowing him freely to make remarks about his own country. @manoharparrikar Sir does your scum of the earth minister @VijaiSardesai hold an Indian or a European passport like half of your cabinet to make a #racist comment against #Indians? Any answers ? @narendramodi_in @PMOIndia @smritiirani — HRS (@The_H_R_S) February 10, 2018 Everyone wants peace to prevail and while sanitation and educating the tourists about cleanliness is extremely important, calling someone scum or speaking ill for the people you serve is stooping low. We hope he gets an opportunity to clean up the words and the sentiments that his words have hurt, and can we please have the Goa we love from the 'Dil Chahta Hai' days?
  15. FAISALABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan said on Tuesday that if his party gets in power the priority will be to create a conducive environment for investors in the country. The PTI chief was addressing a textile conference in Faisalabad. ?In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, no politician can do business,? said Imran. The PTI chief if the party gets elected it will make a policy that will ensure that people in rule don?t benefit themselves. Due to corruption, citizens are investing in the industries in Dubai, said the PTI chief. However, official documents revealed on Monday that the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa administration has spent millions of rupees on Imran Khan's use of the provincial government's helicopters. KP spent millions on Imran's use of govt helicopters, documents reveal PTI chief used KP govt helicopters 40 times to travel 18,000kms, resulting in a total recorded expense of Rs 2.1 million Documents obtained by Geo News from the KP administration department show that the PTI chairperson used the KP government's helicopters free of charge for a total of 74 hours to travel approximately 18,000 kilometres. The provincial government recorded in its books a total expense of Rs 2.1 million at approximately Rs28,865 per hour for Khan's 40 trips on the two helicopters?an Mi-171 and an Ecureuil.
  16. Minister of Interior Ahsan Iqbal. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: Minister of Interior Ahsan Iqbal on Monday said the media should not create an impression that cases of child abuse are rampant in the society. ?All of us have a duty to protect children,? he said while addressing a session in the National Assembly. He further said that the notion that all children in Pakistan are safe is not true. ?It is not true that all children in the country are unsafe,? the federal minister said. ?The media should not create an impression that [child] abuse cases are common in the society.? Iqbal stressed that everyone should be strongly resolved to bring an end to criminal activities. The statement comes after the recent rape and murder cases two minors ? Aasma and Zainab ? sparked widespread condemnation as well calls to address the issue of child sexual abuse properly. The brutal rape and murder of seven-year-old Zainab in Kasur and four-year-old Aasma in Mardan are not one-off incidents. As many as 11 cases of child sexual abuse are reported from across Pakistan every day, according to data collected by non-governmental organisation Sahil. Even in Kasur?which became the centre of a massive child abuse case in 2014 and 2015?the rape and murders of 12 minor girls, all aged between five to eight years, have been reported in the past twelve months. 11 cases of child *** abuse reported in Pakistan every day: report The brutal rape and subsequent murder of seven-year-old Zainab is not a one-off incident According to reports in the media, Aimaan Fatima, Fauzia, Noor Fatima, Sana, Asma and Laiba were among minors kidnapped from the suburbs of Kasur in 2017 and whose dead bodies were later recovered from different parts of the city. According to the latest numbers released by Sahil, an organisation that works on child protection with a special focus on sexual abuse, a total of 1,764 cases of child abuse were reported from across the country in the first six months of 2017 alone. In the previous year, the total number of reported child abuse cases stood at a staggering 4,139, bringing the total number of children being abused in Pakistan per day to 11. The shocking numbers bring to attention the failure of law enforcement agencies in Pakistan, particularly Punjab, in apprehending these criminals and curbing a plague that seems to have taken hold of our society. According to data from Sahil, out of the total cases of child abuse from January to June 2017, 62 percent were reported from Punjab. 27 percent of cases reported were from Sindh province, while 76, 58, 42, and nine cases reported from Balochistan, FATA, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Azad Jammu and Kashmir respectively. The number of cases reported from rural areas amounted to 74 percent, while the number of cases reported from urban areas increased by 10 percent as compared to the comparable period in 2016. Last year, a 17 percent decrease was reported in child abuse cases as compared to the previous year. From January to June, a total of 1,764 cases of child abuse were reported as compared to the 2,127 cases for the same period in 2016. Of the total reported cases of sexual abuse in the first six months of 2017, 45 percent of the cases were committed by acquaintances, while another 17 percent of the horrific crimes were carried out by acquaintances and strangers. Strangers were found responsible for 15 percent of all cases reported in the first six months of 2017. Of all cases, 15 percent of the crimes were committed at the victim's own place, while 12 percent were said to have taken place at an acquaintance?s place. A shocking revelation in the report states that a 100 percent increase in child abuse by landlords was observed in 2017.

"As George Friedman states in his book 'The Next 100 Years', the US is present there to create chaos in the region so that Russia, China, Iran and other regional countries can be contained," Khar said in an interview to CNN. When asked to comment on the New Year tweet of US President Donald Trump, Khar said she would have ?ignored the tweet? had she been in the Foreign Office. "The US is currently the superpower, but if you're going to tweet away your foreign policy, then clearly frankly if I was in the Foreign Office of Pakistan, I would totally ignore this tweet," she said. "This person is a habitual tweeter who tweets rather flippantly, almost like which side of the bed you woke up on. After all the other tweets, I think we should be more concerned about the tweeter than the tweet." In his first tweet of 2018, Trump had announced cutting all further aid to Islamabad on charges of harbouring terrorists. In the tweet, Trump said "the US had foolishly given Pakistan over $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years" and accused Pakistan of thinking "US leaders to be fools". "They give safe havens to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!" he wrote. Khar said that Trump's belief about Pakistan's dependence on US aid was "exaggerated." "I don't think we're dependent on it at all. As someone who managed Pakistan's portfolios for almost five years, I can tell you that our reliance on them is vastly exaggerated," she told the interviewer. Criticising the US president, Khar said one doesn't need to be a "stable genius" to do some basic mathematics. "He talked about a $33 billion that Pakistan received from US. The fact is, since 2001 Pakistan has received somewhere around $4.8 billion under the head of military assistance, and $5.3 billion in the realm of civilian assistance." The former Foreign Minister claimed that "Pakistan has been happily scapegoated for the immense failure in Afghanistan for which Islamabad is an equal victim to Kabul". "We can't afford to be flippant about the realities on the ground in Afghanistan. Warlord-ism all over the place in Afghanistan, where Taliban have taken over," she said. Talking about Pakistan's ties with China, she said: "China is a regional strategic partner, perhaps the only real strategic partner we've had... not from today or the past five years but for the last four decades. With them (China), we have complete alignment of interests."
  18. PML-N leader and Minister of State for Interior Affairs Tallal Chaudry. Photo: Geo News file LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz (PML-N) leader Muhammad Tallal Chaudry hitting back at the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) alleged that ?Bhutto?s party? needs a ?maulvi? (cleric) in Punjab to create a silent alliance. ?[Pakistan Awami Tehreek Chairman] Tahir-ul-Qadri as just an excuse for the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Zardari to create an alliance against Nawaz Sharif because they [know they] individually stand no chance in elections against Nawaz,? he said in response to Zardari?s earlier jibe at the ruling party. ?All Toms, Dicks, and Harrys of politics want to unite to contest elections against Nawaz,? he said. ?But they can only give Nawaz competition if they have done something [substantial for voters].? ?Nawaz fulfils his commitments be it load shedding, terrorism or the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project and people trust him.? The PML-N leader, who is the present Minister of State for Interior Affairs, warned that the PPP will reap what it has sown. ?Allegations of a National Reconciliation Order (NRO) don?t sound good coming from those who have already taken the deal [in the past],? Chaudry said in response to an earlier statement by PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, alleging that the ruling party is still struggling to get an NRO. ?The PML-N does not believe in NRO.? ?The PPP should be ashamed of not having caught the murderers of Benazir,? he said. ?What kind of peace and justice will they [PPP] give to the people of Pakistan when they have been unable to catch the murderers of Benazir.? Conspiracies still being hatched against PPP, says Zardari Rally is expected to be attended by more than a million party supporters and workers In an apparent reference to the PML-N during his address, earlier today, at the tenth death anniversary of slain PPP leader Benazir Bhutto, Zardari had said that just like the PML-N has issues with his party, the PPP too, has issues with the ruling party. "Just like you have issues with us, we have issues with you as well. You have always backstabbed us. This time we will not support you." Zardari had also rejected talk of an NRO in the future and said the party will not accept another compromise. "We spend 12 years in jail while you spend a few months and then get to sign an NRO and attain your freedom. That will not happen again. We reject and NRO in the future," Zardari had said.
  19. Bloomberg has come out with a new report that reveals Apple's plan for the future, The Cupertino giant aims to support apps across iPhones, iPads and macOS (laptops and iMacs) without the need for multiple versions. © Pexels The project is called 'Marzipan' and it is expected to get annoyed at Apple's next WWDC event in June 2018. No other details have been made public and how exactly it will work. A move to make the ecosystem a single user experience would make total sense for the company, its customers and most importantly the developers. It will be easier for developers to now create a single app that will work in tandem with both iOS and macOS devices. The optimal performance on all devices will depend on a single code base and it will be interesting to see how it all comes together. © Pexels This move will also mean that there will be fewer versions of apps to support and maintain. The App Store will also end up featuring a single price for an app that will work on every Apple device. The pricing and the subscription model may vary or change due to this sudden shift. However, it would be most beneficial in the long run for customers that already own multiple Apple products. An integration will also remove a simple roadblock for users i.e. getting familiarised with different apps on different platforms. For example, if one knows how to create artwork on a specific app on an iPad, one will be able to easily transfer your skills, knowledge, and workflow to an iMac when in need of a larger screen. © Pexels The integration of the ecosystem will also give Apple a huge advantage over its competitors. Apple will probably have an upper hand over companies such as Microsoft and Google once the integration comes into effect. Google has been flirting with cross-platform support with their ChromeOS powered laptops, however, it is nowhere close to the comprehensive ecosystem Apple already has to offer. The company already offers Handoff and Continuity features to let users seamlessly transition their work from mobile to desktop devices, so it won't be surprising to see the new integration blow up in the near future.

  21. HYDERABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party leader Maula Bux Chandio on Thursday advised the PML-N to not create hatred towards national institutions. Chandio, speaking at a public even in Sindh's second largest city, also said that he was not in favour of calling the Army during the Faizabad sit-in, but accepted the Army needs to be called and plays a positive role during times of national crisis. He asked where was the government during the botched operation to clear the vital junction in the federal capital, as all government ministers had different statements and did not seem to be on the same page. Referring to PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif, Chandio said he has been defeated. He added that the PML-N needs the PPP to survive and when the PML-N needs help, they always turn towards the PPP. Chandio also claimed that 'someone' had advised him to join the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf and added that there was no comparison between Imran Khan and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. The PPP leader, referring to his party's golden jubilee, said the party has completed 50 years and "God willing will complete 100 years too".
  22. One of the most famous classical music composers in the history of mankind is Ludwig van Beethoven, second only to Mozart and Bach. And yet his life was anything but smooth. We know the most tragic reality of his life was the fact that he went deaf at a time his career was at its peak. Much like the iconic painter Vincent van Gogh who painted with a failing eyesight in his later years. His most famous work 'Starry Night' was painted at this time. An artist losing the very physical ability that his art depends on—it is as baffling as it is tragic. And yet these are legendary masters in their fields. It's either a mad desire to succeed or a mad desire to express and create that wins over most hurdles. Beethoven's hearing ability started to fail in his late twenties itself but the man kept making music. It is believed that he used a pencil to feel the vibrations of the notes on his piano. He would keep one end of the pencil in his mouth and the other end on the piano's soundboard that would transfer vibrations and help him read the notes. © Thinkstock/Getty Images As a child, Beethoven was frequently beaten up by his alcoholic father who wanted him to become a child prodigy like Mozart. His training started young – at the age of 5 – and any lack in attention or excellence invited a severe beating. So little was young Beethoven then that he had to stand on a stool to reach the piano. When his father appointed a tutor, his friend Tobias Friedrich Pfeiffer, to teach Beethoven, there was not much relief for the young musician, even though his new tutor had a significant role in shaping up Beethoven's music foundation. Tobias was an eccentric musician himself – being an insomniac, he preferred the middle of the night to tutor young Beethoven and would wake him up at ungodly hours for lessons. © Wikimedia Commons The mad genius that Beethoven was, he was known to dip his head in cold water before composing. Not only that, he would pour water over his hands when he practiced and he would keep pouring until his clothes were wet. The extent of this odd habit was so much that water would often leak onto the ceiling of the room below his, much to the discomfort of his hosts or neighbours. Considering the fact that Beethoven lived in Austria, it's a miracle he didn't catch pneumonia. © Wikimedia Commons The eccentric artist was a master at his craft but it wasn't without hard labour. Beethoven was dyslexic and had discontinued formal education at the age of 10, to pursue music training full-time. He did not learn the basics of mathematics and language, and struggled to do even simple calculations. He was not as comfortable with numbers and alphabets as he was with music. But this did not mean composing was cakewalk for him. He often struggled to understand and create his music, probably one reason why he felt the need to cool himself down with cold water. © Thinkstock/Getty Images There is a rather interesting story behind how he became deaf. Beethoven had been working on something for his primo tenore who seemed to disapprove his notes. When finally he created something to satisfy the man who then left, he got down to his work. Half an hour later, there was a knock on the door and Beethoven realized it was the primo tenore again, asking him to rework the notes again. Beethoven got so mad with rage that as soon as the man entered his room, he threw up and injured a nerve, that eventually led to his hearing loss. “I sprang up from my table under such an excitement of rage that as the man entered the room I threw upon the floor as they do on the stage, coming down upon my hands. When I arose I found myself deaf and have been so ever since. The physicians say the nerve is injured." Symphony 9, which is considered to be one of his greatest symphonies ever recorded, was written at this time. It was composed between 1822-1824. Beethoven died in 1827. For all his brilliance in composing, Beethoven had a difficult personality. He refused to adhere to societal formalities and was known to be moody and short-tempered. He would often stomp away from the stage if he heard the audience members murmuring amongst themselves. No amount of confrontations could coax him into being more agreeable and bowing down to social norms. So headstrong was he that he was eventually excused from following regular court etiquette. His short-temper, combined by a deep mistrust of people and lack of understanding of human relationships kept him away from people. Even though his friends were irked by his choleric temper, he had a circle of friends who remained by his side—his exceptional talent and forthright personality were too hard to ignore. When he died, his funeral was attended by 20,000 people. What is it about artists and eccentricities that goes so well together? Psychologists have often wondered if there is a connection between genius and eccentric tendencies. Nikola Tesla, the genius inventor responsible for giving the world the alternating current motor design, suffered from obsessive compulsive tendencies that caused him to carry 18 napkins with him most of the time. Never mind that famous composer Mozart sometimes liked to pretend to be a cat and jumped over tables and chairs during rehearsals, 'meowing' like one. What's yours?

  23. PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is using Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz to create a rift between country's institutions. "Nawaz is not fighting for any rights rather he is trying to hide his corruption", alleged Imran while addressing a press conference on Friday. If money laundering allegations are proven against Nawaz then all of his assets abroad would be frozen, he claimed. He added, "an attack on Supreme Court is an attack on democracy." The PTI chief also spoke FATA reforms and said the government has no other option than to integrate FATA and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. "The conditions in tribal areas especially north and south Waziristan are really bad," he remarked, adding "It important that people from those areas also get representation in the provincial assembly." If FATA reforms are not implemented that it would affect people in tribal areas the most, he said, stressing that the process should start by 2018. He also alleged that Mehmood Khan Achakzai is speaking about the benefitting Afghanistan. "Achakzai has nothing to do with FATA", he claimed. During the occasion, former district general secretary JUI-F Mufti Sajjad also announced to join PTI. ?It is necessary to eliminate the menace of corruption for a strong and prosperous nation,? said Mufti Sajjad. Being compared to country's biggest thief: Imran On October 2, PTI chief, while addressing a press conference in the federal capital on Monday, said he is being compared to the most corrupt man in the country. He further said that propaganda is being created and his case is being portrayed in the same light as that of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. "They think that if Nawaz is a thief, then Imran Khan must be one as well," he added. "I am ready for accountability," he said, adding that he is submitted his money trail to the Supreme Court. "I have submitted all the documents pertaining to the money I earned abroad for 20 years," said the PTI chief. On the other hand, Sharif family have failed to provide any details of their properties. "Nawaz Sharif's children became millionaires at a young age," PTI chief reiterated. Imran alleged that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government is protecting the country?s biggest thief. "They are destroying democracy. They have formed a law to protect a criminal" he said referring to the Electoral Reforms Bill 2017.
  24. SYDNEY: Australia on Monday committed to creating a national space agency as it looks to cash in on the lucrative $420 billion and fast-evolving astronautical sector. The announcement came at a week-long Adelaide space conference attended by the world´s top scientists and experts including SpaceX chief Elon Musk. It brings Canberra -- which already has significant involvement in national and international space activities -- into line with most other developed nations, which already have dedicated agencies to help coordinate the industry and shape development. "The global space industry is growing rapidly and it´s crucial that Australia is part of this growth," acting science minister Michaelia Cash said in statement. "A national space agency will ensure we have a strategic long-term plan that supports the development and application of space technologies and grows our domestic space industry." According to the government, the global space sector -- encompassing innovation, defence, and telecommunications -- has been growing annually since the late 1990s at almost 10 percent, driving revenue each year of US$323 billion. Thousands of the world´s top scientists and space experts are attending the week-long International Astronautical Congress in Adelaide. SpaceX chief Musk is set to give an update on his ambitious vision of establishing a Mars colony. Also among those presenting is defence giant Lockheed Martin, which is working with NASA on plans to reach the Red Planet. Lee Spitler, from Macquarie University´s astronomy department in Sydney, said Australia´s space industry currently operated "as a grassroots movement across a small number of companies, university groups and the defence sector". "It will help bring to the forefront all the great work that has been going on in Australia in the space sector, and increase the potential for our country to play a key role in the international space scene in the future," said Spitler. Australia´s commitment to an agency follows the government in July ordering a review of the country´s space industry capability, with a fuller strategy to underpin the work of the new body to be unveiled next year. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Australia launching its first satellite, the only country at the time to achieve the feat after the United States and Russia. It has played a vital part in many space missions in the decades since then, with its Deep Space Communication Complex outside Canberra one of only three sites in the world capable of tracking NASA´s deep space assets. Australian National University´s Penny King, who worked on the Mars "Curiosity Rover", mission, said the agency would improve opportunities for local scientists. "Australians will be on the world stage, asking questions such as: How can we best care for Earth? How should we look for life beyond Earth? Where should we go?," she said.
  25. KARACHI: Pakistan on Wednesday said that a military solution to the Afghan issue will create further complications, after its foreign minister returned home from a diplomatic offensive to engage regional powers which share a similar point of view on Afghanistan. Speaking on Geo News' programme 'Aaj Shahzaib Khanzada Kay Sath', Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said all the three regional states - China, Iran and Turkey - acknowledged Pakistan's sacrifices (in the war against terrorism) and backed its stance beyond expectations. Trump backs off Afghan withdrawal, slams Pakistan over ?terrorist safe havens? Trump warns vital aid could be cut if Pakistan does not stop Pakistan decided to approach regional countries after US President Donald Trump announced his controversial new policy for South Asia, which included 'anti-Pakistan' remarks. Since then, Islamabad has gone on a diplomatic offensive, engaging regional countries that share its point of view with regards to Afghanistan. The minister stressed on the need for resolving the Afghan issue regionally and urged the countries affected by Afghanistan's situation to find a solution to it. Asif said that he has spoken to his Afghan counterpart and Pakistan's efforts were bearing good results. He said that he had briefed the prime minister on the issue and soon the matter will be presented before the National Security Committee. China reaffirms support for Pakistan in war against terrorism China, Pakistan anchor for peace in region: Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi Asif discusses regional situation, bilateral ties with Turkish leadership Pakistan decided to approach regional countries after Trump announced his controversial new policy for South Asia The minister said that he also had talks pertaining to India's political role in Afghanistan. "New Delhi won't have a political role in Afghanistan. It will only be restricted to the economic sector." He, however, said that India's investment in Afghanistan is not meant for its betterment, whereas the United States has clarified that New Delhi does not have a political role in Afghanistan. Last week, Asif stressed that the United States should respect Pakistan's territorial integrity. Khawaja Asif meets Iran FM, urges consensus among Afghanistan's neighbours Foreign minister is in Iran, expected to hold meeting with Iran President Hassan Rouhani "We want to stay engaged with the United States. We have had a long relationship with them, spanning 70 years,? he said, but lamented that people in Washington do not have a full comprehension of the facts. Asked about Chaudhry Nisar's criticism of his statement about "putting own house in order", the minister said the former interior minister expressed his personal opinion. He, however, stood firm on his statement saying it was said in the backdrop of the past four years, which was true.
