  1. Rights lawyer Jalila Haider. Photo: FileHuman rights activist and lawyer Jalila Haider was on Monday barred from boarding a flight to the United Kingdom by officials from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) at Lahore airport, sources told Geo News. According to sources, the rights lawyer was also detained at the airport on Monday morning. Haider had been scheduled to board a flight to London where she was due to attend a conference related to her work. Sources from the FIA said that Haider was barred from departing Pakistan as her name was on a watch-list of individuals who are under official scrutiny for alleged involvement in 'anti-state' activities. Also read: Women who became symbols of resistance in 2019 Sources confirmed that Haider was released from custody after a six-hour long detention at Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore. Haider was let go after she recorded a statement, sources said. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) condemned the detention of Haider and termed it an "ill conceived action" that continued the tradition of targeting human rights defenders and journalists. "We condemn this ill-conceived action because it simply continues the pattern of arbitrarily targeting the freedom of movement of human rights defenders and journalists without cause," the group wrote on Twitter. The commission also welcomed the decision of the authorities to allow Haider to book another flight to the UK after returning her passport and other documents to her as she was released. Haider is a rights lawyer providing free legal services to women in poverty. In October last year, Haider was named among the 100 most influential women of 2019 by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). Besides being a vocal activist for the rights of women, she is also the founder of We the Humans, a non-profit organisation working with local communities to provide opportunities for vulnerable women. Also read: Hazara woman from Pakistan named in BBC's 100 Women of 2019 Taking to social networking platform Twitter after the BBC announcement last year, Haider had expressed profound joy at being being named in the list, saying she was honored by the mention. "Wow, This is an honor for me that I am among the @BBC100women list 2019 from Paksitan. I want to congratulate Parveen Ahanger @_APDP also to be the among the list. More power to the brave women of Kashmir," she wrote on Twitter. "Looking back into the past leads to the realisation that the politics of conflict, war and destruction is interconnected with Patriarchy. This is the time now that the world should accept the future as female," Haider said. Other woman on the list included Precious Adams from the United States, Parveena Ahanger from Indian-occupied Kashmir, and Jasmine Akter from the Rohingya community.
  2. Looks like, the people of the current generation either do not take their lives seriously or consider themselves the OG 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' who can survive literally anything. Which they do actually, in most cases. Anyway, I don't see any other way to justify the viral challenges like the Tide Pod challenge, Kiki challenge or the Ice Bucket challenge that took the world by storm in the last few months. But, just when we thought that people will stop doing crazy things in the name of a challenge, the 'Cereal Challenge' came around and proved us wrong. What is the first thought that came to your mind when you heard of this challenge? Eating as much cereal as possible? Or eating cereal with hands? Whatever it is, this is none of that. This cereal challenge is basically people eating cereal out of each others' mouths. Yes, you read it right and there's nothing NSFW about it. It's actually gross and disgusting. So, in this challenge, one person is the bowl whose mouth is filled with cereal and milk (in whichever order you want) and then the other person takes a spoon and scoops the cereal out from the mouth of that person. WHY? Seriously, WHY will anyone do that? x1 cannot disband they still havent done the cereal challenge. we need to see seungyul do this pic.twitter.com/PqZ1hsPuVc — ð¨ð§ð ð¢ð­ ðð¢ on vacay (@2seungyul) January 15, 2020 As expected, there are more fails in the challenge as people hold it in for a long time and end up choking on it and spitting it out. I am sure these are the same people who like kiwis or bananas on their pizzas. @joshgancas xvibeats #pov you have no bowls at your house so you use your friend as oneð±ð±ð!

  3. Have you ever inspired a child to think outside the box and have them do something else for another person? I know this question is rather vague but in all seriousness, the children today are very impressionable and they only act or react on how people around them think, choose, behave and act. So, in order to make sure your child, or any child around you adopts the best of qualities in them, you have to be an example of something you want them to learn in the first place. We have a living example of that amidst us and we can learn a thing or two from her. Tunisha Khusroo Poacha, a 6-year-old, who'd seen her father donating clothes and food for the Maharashtra flood survivors, asked him why wasn't he collecting school bags, stationery and books for children too. At first, her father thought she was just saying so because she saw him donate a bunch of things, but later, he realised how serious she was about helping out children who'd lost an opportunity to complete their education, due to the floods. © The Better India Tunisha, from Nagpur, has always seen her father, Khushroo, support the needy through his NGO, Seva Kitchen. She is sensitised to issues that need humanitarian attention and help and hence, when her father helps with donations, she makes it a point to understand the larger cause at hand. When she saw him donate for the floods last year, she asked him why he wasn't doing anything for the children who were going to school. “I told her it was an oversight on my part and urged her to do something herself. She thought about it and proposed that she would donate schools bags to everyone,” Khusroo told The Better India in an exclusive interview. “My daddy gave them groceries and clothes. So I said why cannot I give them school bags?” Tunisha added, in the interview. When Tunisha and her father settled on donating school bags to the kids, her father asked her the exact number of bags she required to make the donation. Without hesitating, she picked 5,000 bags as her figure. Two months after that discussion, the six-year-old, with the help of her father, has managed to send 1000 bags to Goonj, an NGO that helps in disaster relief and management by supplying aid to the affected people and areas. Because of her efforts, low income government schools in Nagpur have received close to 1,800 bags. © The Better India Now, how the idea sprouted in a six-year-old's head to donate bags is another spectacular story! Some time ago, her uncle had gifted her a magic slate. While sitting and drawing on it one day, Tunisha asked her father, who was already helping out with donations, if there was a way to provide these magic slates for needy kids. Her father told her it would be difficult to make so many magic slate for the kids. She thought about an alternative and came up with 'The Bags of Kindness'. Now, people usually order these bags online, since they're virtually available now and the family helps as many kids as they can, through this initiative. © The Better India “I wish to give them water bottles and tiffin boxes after this", the class I student shared with The Better India. Imagine, a six-year-old's drive to help the needy has become her dream at such a young age. And she won't stop there. She will do bigger and brighter things to help them out, only because her father has been such an inspiration to her and that's the only way children today learn the good things in life!

  4. In less than three months, Prithvi Shaw has made a second staggering comeback to the field and proven why he is one of the top prospects as the future of Indian cricket in the years to come. This time around, the batsman went on a rampage against the New Zealand XI in the second warm-up One-Day match amidst India's tour of the land of the Kiwis. Off just 100 deliveries, Shaw exploded for 150 runs with 22 boundaries and two maximums being struck from his bat. Prithvi Shaw smashes a quick 150 as India A put up 372 against New Zealand XIhttps://t.co/yDtcBWe9R0 pic.twitter.com/C1PSbQUuE3 — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) January 19, 2020 The Virar-born helped his side rack up a massive total of 372 runs before the Indian batting innings came to an end in the 50th over, while receiving significant contribution from all-rounder Vijay Shankar who slammed 58 off 41 balls. India A skipper Shubman Gill failed to impress as he was dismissed at 24. Good to see Vijay Shankar scoring in the death for which once he was known for. Three knocks like this along with one or two wickets in this season will help him to get picked in the Test squad(if he does even well there are chances for him to play ODIs as well). — cricfan (@KlBest) January 19, 2020 The 20-year-old cricketer in Prithvi Shaw is an enigma. He is someone the fans of the Indian cricket team want to put their faith in but also aren't too confident about, and it has nothing to do with his skills with the bat, which are obviously great. Shaw has been playing jump rope with his ability to be liked by the coaches, his teammates and the rest of the people around him. After coming back from being banned for eight months because of unintentionally consuming a prohibited substance, Shaw who was the opener for Mumbai during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy tournament, went on to score 63 runs off 39 balls. It was all well and good until Shaw decided to copy Virat Kohli's “my bad does the talking” gesture and got an earful by the viewers. Welcome back! He is making a comeback today and @PrithviShaw makes it a memorable one with a fine-half century for Mumbai against Assam in @Paytm #MushtaqAliT20. pic.twitter.com/hiBfiElhed — BCCI Domestic (@BCCIdomestic) November 17, 2019 This is the problem with the young players. Coming Back from a ban, scoring a half century against a relatively weaker bowling attack, and then making gestures. They need to learn to be humble. This over confident kid won't last long in the international arena. MARK MY WORDS! — Shubham Agrawal (@imShubhamA) November 17, 2019 Shaw has also been called out for living an undisciplined life because of which he had gone on to suffer from multiple injuries and was therefore ruled out of opportunities to make it big in the world of international cricket. “Whose loss is it? How long will it take for him to understand that he was brought into the Test team ahead of Mayank Agarwal, who was the most prolific and consistent run-getter in the domestic circuit that time. If Prithvi is not making the opportunity count, he can only blame himself. It's his lifestyle causing all the mess,” a source had told The Times of India earlier in January. “I wouldn't like to cite particular instances though there's a list of misconducts that have been reported. The last one was in Baroda. The Mumbai team manager was very angry and reported an incident. I wouldn't like to get into details here but something's very wrong. Someone needs to have a very clear and serious chat with him,” revealed another source about the cricketer's misdemeanour. Despite all the issues, the fact is that Shaw is a prolific batsman. It is his confidence in his skills that enables him to enter the field after being away for weeks and still put up big numbers. His 150-run knock in Lincoln is a mark for big things to come, provided he stays healthy and works a little on his attitude. View the full article
  5. Disney drops 'Fox' name from 20th Century film studio: reportsNEW YORK: Disney will rename 20th Century Fox to distance its legendary film studio from the assets of media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, US media reported Friday. The entertainment conglomerate last year acquired most of the assets of 21st Century Fox group, including the film house, while former owner Murdoch and his shareholders kept several TV channels, including Fox News. Variety magazine reported that the entertainment giant decided to rename its subsidiary to remove all links with Fox due to the ultra-conservative image of Murdoch and his Fox News channel — the preferred news source of President Donald Trump. Disney's decision is a symbolic step for one of Hollywood´s founding studios, which began production in 1914 and merged with 20th Century Pictures in 1935. The Fox Searchlight studio, 20th Century Fox's younger sibling, will also be rebranded as Searchlight Pictures. Disney has yet to decide on the fate of television studios 20th Century Fox Television and Fox 21 Television, according to Variety. Disney did not respond to AFP's request for comment.
  6. We've seen all sorts of strange videos doing the rounds on the internet ever so often that we're almost immune to them now. Some of them make sense even while they're strange and some of them are utterly senseless, with no real context. But the strange ones that make sense are another league apart altogether and are the ones with the maximum recall value. We have one such example amidst us. A video on Facebook has recently gone viral and everyone's either talking about it or sharing it on social media, only because it's that fantastic. A group of college boys from Khalsa College, Amritsar perform Bhangra in the middle of snow covered Solang Valley in Himachal Pradesh, and we think this is a bit strange and phenomenal all at once. The viral clip of men doing Bhangra on the Punjabi song Sahiba by SimranKaur Dadhli during heavy snowfall is quite daring to be honest. Braving the cold for a dance, that too Bhangra is definitely a daring act and we can't stop watching this video already! Check out the video here In the video the group can be seen dancing even while it's snowing and the enthusiasm they exude while doing the steps is why this video is definitely worth the watch. It also looks quite scenic and aesthetic, with Solang's picturesque view. The video was posted by the Bhangra and Jhumar group of the Amritsar Khalsa college on their page on Facebook and it managed to garner over 255k views, 2.9k likes and 260 comments so far. Their performance has garnered a lot of positive comments on social media about their 'josh' and overall enthusiasm. Well, this is the spirit young students should have nowadays along with the enthusiasm to discover and try new things. Well, in this case, they've definitely discovered how to dance in snow, after trying it out and succeeding in it so smoothly. View the full article
  7. Companies are now innovating or re-inventing the design of smartphones to pave way for the future. Weâve seen brands make full-display smartphones to devices that fold. However, Xiaomi made a smartphone straight out of a science fiction movie that is wrapped with a display from all sides. The smartphone was first shown off last year and we got to see the smartphone for ourselves this week. © MENSXP/Akshay Bhalla While it may look like a concept device, the smartphone is actually going on sale in China soon and if converted to Indian Rupees, it can cost up to Rs 2.5 lakh. It uses flexible OLED panels just like folding phones, but instead of being a foldable device, it has screens all around it. At first glance, you might think the Mi Mix Alpha is some high-tech device from the movie Minority Report but it actually works as advertised. The #MiMixAlpha is action. Resisted really hard to not pick it up and play around with it. pic.twitter.com/vTpLaZzjEh â Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) January 16, 2020 Xiaomi has termed this technology as âSurround Displayâ and it has a 189.6% screen-to-body ratio. It has almost no bezels at both the top and bottom of the device and has a vertical stripe at the back that houses the primary camera and all the necessary sensors and antennas. Notably, the smartphone does not have a selfie camera as one can simply flip the phone and use the primary camera for taking selfies. The second screen at the back is used as the viewfinder for selfies and will automatically launch once you flip the smartphone. © MENSXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to availability, only around 500 of them exist as of now which is why it also comes with a hefty price tag. Xiaomi is currently evaluating whether the smartphone should be available for Indian customers but we will only know for sure in some time. When it comes to the durability of the smartphone, Xiaomi says it has used a titanium alloy frame for the chassis while the strip at the back has been made with ceramic. Naturally, being an all-screen display, one has to be careful while using it, but Xiaomi has provided a special case for the smartphone to protect it from fall damage. Since the smartphone is all screen, there are no speakers or physical buttons to adjust the settings of the phone. Instead, Xiaomi uses capacitive buttons on the stem of the smartphone to control functions such as increasing/decreasing volume, control other features such as WiFi and other shortcuts that you may want to use on the fly. Since there are no speakers, Xiaomi has embedded an earpiece into the display that also functions as a proximity sensor. In fact, this technology was developed by Sony and the Japanese company calls it âAcoustic Surfaceâ. It is the same technology Sony is currently using for some of their high-end televisions. © Xiaomi When it comes to the specifications, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha comes with a Snapdragon 855+ chipset, 12GB RAM, 512GB of internal storage (UFS 3.0) and a 108MP primary camera. The smartphone also Haas 5G connectivity capabilities and supports power delivery fast charging. Interestingly, when charging the smartphone, the Mi Mix Alpha has a unique animation that converts the entire display to a battery status indicator. It starts with a red-orange hue when it has low charge and goes all the way up to bright green when it reaches full charge. The Mi Mix Alpha is definitely not a smartphone that everyone can afford and is reserved for the affluent. Which is why Xiaomi is considering whether it makes sense to sell the smartphone in India. However, if the brand eventually brings the smartphone to India, expect it to come in very limited quantities and with a hefty price tag. Nonetheless, a beautiful smartphone that is also one out of five hundred is probably worth more than the monetary value to some people. View the full article
  8. A worker unloads palm oil fruits from a lorry inside a palm oil factory in Salak Tinggi, outside Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Photo: ReutersKUALA LUMPUR: India is planning to cut some imports from Turkey and widen curbs on palm oil from Malaysia to oil, gas and other products, government officials said, targeting the two Muslim-majority countries for their criticism of India’s policy towards occupied Kashmir, reported Reuters news agency. India, the world’s biggest buyer of edible oils, has already effectively stopped importing palm oil from Malaysia by asking Indian importers to look elsewhere. New Delhi is now planning to restrict buying of petroleum, aluminium ingots, liquefied natural gas, computer parts and microprocessors from Malaysia, the two government officials, who did not wish to be identified, told Reuters. Also read: Malaysia's Mahathir defends criticism of India despite imposition of curbs on palm oil The government is also planning to cut imports of oil and steel products from Turkey, one of the officials said. “Our government has not taken kindly the comments of Malaysia and Turkey and we will restrict trade from both the countries,” one of the officials said. The Indian Commerce Ministry did not reply to an email seeking comment. Also read: India reacts angrily to Malaysian PM's criticism of controversial citizenship law Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said recently Hindu-majority India was “invading and occupying the country” of Jammu and Kashmir and Turkey’s Tayyip Erdogan had said Kashmiris are “virtually under blockade”. The Indian government withdrew the autonomy of Kashmir last year to tighten its grip on the region, shutting down internet access and detaining activists and politicians. India’s Supreme Court last week ruled an indefinite shutdown of the internet in Kashmir was illegal. Also read: OIC voices concerns over Indian citizenship law targeting Muslims Tension between India and Malaysia, the world’s second-biggest producer and exporter of palm oil after Indonesia, further escalated after 94-year-old Mahathir criticised India’s new citizenship law that critics say discriminates against Muslims. Turkey meanwhile has sided with Pakistan on issues such as its membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group, which oversees the export of goods that can be used for nuclear weapons manufacturing. Also read: Imran Khan, India and courts: The news makers in Pakistan in 2019 Turkey is also against the blacklisting of Pakistan by the world financial watchdog, the Financial Action Task Force, to curb its alleged financing of terror, something India has been lobbying for hard. Indian trade data indicates that overall imports from both Malaysia and Turkey had already taken a hit last year. With additional input from Reuters
  9. In a case that has recently sent shockwaves through the country, anti-terror cop Davinder Singh was arrested on January 11, along with two terrorists - that he was allegedly accompanying out of Kashmir for a possible terror strike. While the arrest implies a broader picture of shady, illicit networks of power particularly in the Indian Army - it also demands revisiting Singh's storied and very publicised career as a police officer, and particularly his involvement with 2001's Afzal Guru incident. Here's a quick lowdown on Singh's career across the last twenty-odd years. 1. The Early Years - 1962 to 1994 © Wikimedia/Gowar Wani Born in 1962, Davinder Singh has had a long and complex history with Kashmir. He comes from Tral - a small town in Kashmir's Pulwama district that coincidentally happens to be where Hizbul Mujahideen ex-Commander, Burhan Wani is from. It was, and currently is one of the region's major hotbeds for militancy. © Reuters Singh spent his college years at Amar Singh College - one of the state's oldest institutes - after which he joined the police force as a sub-inspector back in 1994. 2. Singh's Rise And Fall - 1995 to 2000 © Reuters During this period, Kashmir suffered from serious insurgency threats, primarily from organisations such as the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front. Throughout the mid-late 90s, Singh rose through the ranks of J&K's counterinsurgency wing, and operated out of Srinagar, eventually joining the Special Operations Group, or SOG. It's said that early on, Singh displayed a great deal of distinction and valour in his work. A CRPF officer recalls how DSP Davinder Singh had bravely fought in an encounter in North Kashmir's Sopore area in the late 1990s - even taking a hit to his leg during an operation in Budgam, just 11 km away from Srinagar. Appreciated by his superiors, he was promoted to the position of Inspector during the late 90s. The red flags began to show up, eventually. One of Singh's earliest efforts at playing the system involved a drug-peddler smuggling charas out of the region. After nabbing him, Singh then went on to sell the contraband instead of turning it over to the authorities. There were also stories of extortion, and a bizarre case where Singh carjacked a truck containing timber, which belonged to a relative of former CM, Ghulam Mohideen Shah, as per the reports. While these reports made their way around the J&K Police, little action was taken against Singh. Officials were quoted saying, "It is Davinder Singh's track record in counter-terror operation, which got him immunity. Several inquiries followed no action." It was only a matter of time before Singh eventually got involved with terror groups. 3. The Afzal Guru Case - 2000-2001 © Reuters After his experiences as a key inspector in the SOG, Singh developed a reputation for what he described as "torture, interrogation and breaking suspects". In 2000, he managed to get his hands on Afzal Guru, a former militant who was tortured and interrogated at Singh's camp for several days. Singh himself admitted in a 2006 interview that he “poured petrol in his arse and gave him electric shocks,” but Guru did not end up revealing any information. In a letter published several years later, Guru claimed that he was only let go after his family paid the cop a sum of Rs. 80,000. The following year, Singh was demoted and transferred to state intelligence from the SOG - a move that happened in the wake of custodial deaths under his command, and a track record of torturing civilians. Within a year, the infamous Parliament terror attack took place. © Reuters; Indian Army soldiers patrol around the capital's Parliament House, days after a suicide attack by terrorists claimed the lives of 11 guardsmen on 13th December, 2001.] Afzal Guru explained how in 2001, he was contacted by Singh to carry out a "job" - which involved ferrying a man named Mohammed into Delhi and providing him with rented accomodation. It so turned out that this Mohammed was, in fact, one of the terrorists taking part in the attack. Eventually, Guru was tracked down and arrested in Srinagar, sentenced to death and was hanged in secret in 2013 - a move that drew massive controversy from human rights groups across the world. Guru's claims against Singh were ignored by the authorities, and Singh continued to roam freely despite an incredibly serious accusation - even if it came from a terror accused. Despite his record, he was selected for a UN Peacekeeping effort in Kosovo, and was eventually promoted to Deputy Superintendent of Police by 2006. 4. The Pulwama Connection - 2017-2019 © Reuters One of the major probes currently involving Singh is his connection with militants in Pulwama. Back in August 2017, the cop was involved in an encounter where three terrorists engaged in a 19-hour skirmish with a joint force of CRPF and Kashmir Police units. A total of eight men were killed, and for his voluntary participation in squad, Singh was awarded the Sher-E-Kashmir medal - the state police's highest gallantry award. India Today has claimed their sources suggested that Singh was aware of the attacks beforehand and there was definite cause for suspicion. Recently, the INC had suggested that Singh might have had something to do with the suicide-bomb that killed 40 CRPF troops in early 2019. While Singh was removed from his post in the region earlier in 2018, we're yet to see what Singh's investigation will reveal. All of which brings us up to speed on Singh's public record - until he ran out of luck this January. Kashmir's Inspector General of Police (IGP) Vijay Kumar has slammed Singh for “heinous crimes” and has suggested that Singh will be subjected to the same fate he dealt out to suspected militants back when he worked as a counterinsurgency cop. “He is being treated on par with the militants and has been properly arrested, (and) has been brought under remand and his interrogation is on,” explained the IGP.

  10. When I was younger, I would love to spend time with my grandfather, while he would regale me with his "war tales". I would be absolutely mesmerised to say the least, and imagine him bravely fight our enemies, in wars that are only studied in history books now. The brave sons of our soils have fought horrifying wars and when we hear their tragic yet heroic stories, we can't help but have immense pride for our soldiers who risk their lives everyday just so we can sleep soundly. © Twitter On Army Day today, I would love to pay an ode to all the martyred, brave soldiers who have led some daring missions to protect Indian borders, rescue people and fight terrorists and keep us all safe. Here are some outstanding military operations carried out by the Indian Army in the past decade. (1) Operation Surya Hope (2013) Operation Surya Hope was the Indian Army's Central Command response to the June 2013, North Indian floods in Uttrakhand. If you remember the floods that happened in Uttrakhand in 2013, they were devastating, and affected millions. The floods left over 100,000 pilgrims and tourists stranded and killed thousands of people. The operation was commanded by Lieutenant General Anil Chait, the General Officer Commanding in Chief (GOC in C) of Central Command. He was succeeded by General Rajan Bakshi, on July 1, 2013, who said the army would continue with the relief operations. The Indian Army managed to rescue a number of civilians caught in the dreaded floods. © Twitter (2) Operation Maitri (2015) Operation Maitri was a rescue and relief operation in Nepal by the Indian armed forces and the Government of India, in the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake. India responded to disaster relief within 15 minutes of the earthquake occurring. The armed forces helped rescue a number of people stuck under debris and also assisted them with medical aid. Over 43,000 Indians and 785 foreigners were successfully evacuated. © Twitter (3) India Counter-Insurgency Operation In Myanmar (2015) In June 2015, India announced that it had conducted a cross-border operation against insurgents belonging to the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCS-K). The operation took place in Myanmar and it took place in response to the ambush of the Indian Army convoy of 6 Dogra regiment in Manipur. India destroyed insurgent camps and a large number of insurgents were killed during the cross border operation in Myanmar, according to India. © Twitter (4) Indian Line Of Control Strike (2016) In September 2016, India announced that it conducted 'surgical strikes' against Pakistan-based militants, across the Line of Control in Pakistan administered Kashmir. The surgical strike was successful as the terrorist bases were neutralised. A documented partial footage of the strike was released for the Indian media, in June 2018, as proof for the strike conducted. © Twitter (5) Operation Calm Down (2016) Operation Calm down was started by the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir, in the wake of the death of Burhan Wani in July 2016, which led to unrest in Kashnir because of which more than 90 civilians and two security personnel were killed and many got injured. The operation was started in September 2016 and it was initiated to bring the region back in order, while using minimal force. Connectivity was lost over some regions and schools and shops were shut down for three months and the Army aimed to undo the unrest and try and bring back normalcy in the region. © Twitter (6) Operation Sahyog (2018) Indian Army launched operation Sahyog to rescue people in flood-hit Kerala in 2018.

  12. The much awaited film Tanhaji hit the screens on January 10. Directed and co-written by Om Raut, Tanhaji is an adaptation of the lore of the Battle of Sinhagad in 1670 between the Maratha King Shivaji and the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb. Besides doing extremely well at the box office, if there's one thing that people can't stop talking about, it's the multiple beard styles seen on-screen in the film. And here's the best part, you can actually get them from your local salon if you just take a picture reference. (Chances are, your barber has seen the film too which means you can get the exact look.) 1. Pornstache © Ajay Devgn FFilms Ajay Devgn's character as Tanhaji can be seen in a pornstache or otherwise known as a weighted moustache. Although the pornstar moustache has different variations, the most popular one can be defined as a thick, heavy moustache with slightly elongated ends and no accompanying facial hair. A similar version can also be seen on Ajay Devgn. 2. Short Boxed Beard © Ajay Devgn FFilms Uday Bhan played by Saif Ali Khan can be seen sporting short boxed beard. Now, here's the thing. A short boxed beard can be defined as a short moustache with a medium length beard as can be seen on Saif. The beard is fuller and covers relatively more surface on the face as can be seen. 3. Handlebar Moustache with Beard © Ajay Devgn FFilms Sharad Kelkar's character in Tanhaji can be seen in a visibly defined handlebar 'stache. But the look has been given a twist with an additional beard. If you think that a handlebar on its own is over the top, adding a beard to the picture can be a gamechanger. 4. The Weighted Beard © Ajay Devgn FFilms Aurangzeb played by Luke Kenny sported a weighted beard which is characterised with a relatively fuller beard with a fine moustache. This beard is the polar opposite of a weighted moustache where the emphasis is on the 'stache. View the full article

  15. WUHAN: A 61-year-old man has become the first person to die in China from a respiratory illness believed caused by a new virus from the same family as SARS, which claimed hundreds of lives more than a decade ago, authorities said.Forty-one people with pneumonia-like symptoms have so far been diagnosed with the new virus in Wuhan, with one of the victims dying on Thursday, the central Chinese city´s health commission said on its website on Saturday. Seven others remained in serious condition, two were discharged from treatment, and the rest were stable, it added. The episode has caused alarm due to the spectre of SARS, or Sudden Acute Respiratory Syndrome, which in 2002-2003 killed 349 people in mainland China and another 299 in Hong Kong, whose economy was hit hard by the epidemic´s devastating impact on tourism. The Wuhan health commission said the man who died had purchased goods from a seafood market in the city identified by authorities as the centre of the outbreak. It was closed on January 1. The man, who also had underlying health issues including chronic liver disease, died in hospital on Thursday of "respiratory failure and severe pneumonia", the commission added. No new cases have been detected since January 3 nor any "clear evidence of human-to-human transmission", it said. People in white hazmat suits were seen spraying liquid on the market floor late Saturday, while a number of guards sat outside the perimeter of the facility´s two sections without masks on. Chinese scientists investigating the outbreak said last week they believe the pathogen is a previously unknown type of coronavirus, a broad family ranging from the common cold to more serious illnesses like SARS. Scientists in Hong Kong´s Department of Health said Saturday that genetic sequencing of the virus found in one of the Wuhan patients and published online by a Chinese expert indicated it was 80 percent similar to SARS found in bats. Speaking at a news conference in Hong Kong, they said it was too early to conclude definitively that it was a SARS strain, adding that the city needed to stay vigilant. "We will remain alert as we believe the epidemic will continue to develop," said Wong Ka-hing, director of the department´s Health Protection Centre. Hong Kong authorities have taken a range of precautions including stepping up the disinfection of trains and planes, and checks of passengers. - Travel rush looms - On Saturday evening, there was little sign of alarm in Wuhan outside of the seafood market, which had been cordoned off. Few people at the city´s airport wore masks, and no extra monitoring measures were visible at the airport´s terminals. A restaurant on the outside of the building housing the seafood market was still open for business. One man, a dry goods seller at the market surnamed Dai, attempted to enter the market around midnight but was turned away by the guards. He told AFP he was not worried about getting infected. "I haven´t heard that this disease is contagious," Dai said, adding that he believed the illness was caused by a fire at the market in mid-November where items including plastic materials and chili peppers were burnt. The WHO said Thursday it was not recommending any specific measures for travellers or restrictions on trade with China, and expressed confidence in the ability of Chinese authorities to contain the virus. China has entered its annual Lunar New Year holiday travel rush, raising concerns about the mass movement of people serving as a vector for the pathogen. In the world´s largest annual human migration, hundreds of millions will pack into trains, buses and planes to travel for the festival in late January. China has not announced any travel restrictions. Hong Kong authorities said on Saturday that the number of people hospitalised with flu-like symptoms in recent days after travelling to Wuhan had grown to 60, including seven new cases since Friday. Forty-six of that total, however, have already been discharged. None have yet been diagnosed with the new coronavirus. City residents worried about the outbreak have rushed to buy face masks from local pharmacies, with many selling out earlier this week, while officials in Taiwan have urged the island´s health and welfare ministry to strengthen quarantine controls.
  16. Known to be one of the world's largest tiger habitats, India has long been struggling to keep up the numbers of tigers living within its borders. However, things seem to have taken a turn for the better. According to the 2018 'Status of Tigers in India' report issued by the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) along with Wildlife Institute of India, the adult tiger population in the country has gone up and presently stands at 2,967. © Unsplash That's a significant jump from 2014 when the numbers were 2,226. The good news was shared by Indian Forest Service officer Parveen Kaswan on Twitter, who shared a hreat-warming picture of a tigress walking with her cubs in the forest. This is magical picture.

  20. A North Korean mother faces possible jail time from the countryâs authoritarian regime after saving her two children from a devastating house fire, for allowing portraits of the countryâs dictators to burn. The fire broke out in a home shared by two families in Onsong County, North Hamgyong province - a hilly region of rice farms situated near the Chinese border. According to North Korean law, every household must hang portraits of past leaders Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il - a measure reinforced by regularly visiting inspectors. Failure to treat these portraits with the same reverence expected towards the leaders themselves is a serious crime. © Reuters; The images of the ex-leaders are so venerated, that even this bridegroom from Pyongyang has chosen to wear a badge featuring them on his wedding day. When the fire broke out, both sets of parents were away from home, and rushed back to save their families once they spotted smoke. In the process, one set of portraits was reduced to ashes. According to local newspaper Daily NK, the mother will have to face a lengthy prison sentence with hard labour if found guilty, while the investigation process will mean that she cannot tend to her children in the hospital nor obtain the antibiotics needed to treat their burns. © Reuters; North Korean high-school students sing and perform underneath the watchful eye of their ex-leaders. Furthermore, neighbours said that they were eager to help, but stayed away fearing that the woman could be charged with a political crime. Meanwhile, a farm labourer who saved the other familyâs portraits has been hailed as a hero - despite recently serving time for a violent crime. This isnât the first time fires and North Korean dictator-portraits have been in the news, however. In a 2015 interview, Jun Yoo-Sung, who fled the country in 2005, explained how North Koreans who rescue these portraits in fires and floods are regarded as heroes - especially if theyâre âmartyredâ in the process. © Reuters; Propaganda starts early for these North Korean kindergarteners. âWhen a house was set on fire, some child was found to have been burnt to death holding on to those portraits,' she said. âOf course, such incidents are used for North Korean propaganda.â Similarly, in 2012, a teenager drowned while trying to save her familyâs portraits in a flash-flood. She was posthumously Kim Jong-Il Youth Honor Award and her school was renamed in her memory. With images of the two leaders staring down from the walls at nearly every building, itâs no surprise that the country has developed a reputation for human rights violations and upholding a downright dystopian government.

  23. "He has been banned from travelling until his judicial file arrives from Japan," said a judicial source. Photo: ANIFormer auto tycoon Carlos Ghosn on Thursday was banned from travelling internationally by Lebanon after he received a "red notice" by Interpol on charges of financial misconduct in Japan, judicial sources said. The 65-year-old businessman — for years venerated in Japan for turning around once-ailing Nissan — fled while awaiting trial on charges including allegedly under-reporting his compensation to the tune of $85 million. His shock arrival in his native Lebanon last month was the latest twist in a story worthy of a Hollywood plot and prompted outrage from the Japanese government as well as from Nissan. "The state prosecution issued a travel ban for Ghosn, and asked for his file from the Japanese authorities," a judicial source told AFP. A second judicial source said: "He has been banned from travelling until his judicial file arrives from Japan." Read more: Lebanon receives Interpol arrest notice for Ghosn: state media Lebanon's judiciary received a "red notice" from Interpol last week urging Ghosn's arrest. A "red notice" is a request to police across the world to provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender or similar legal action. It is not an arrest warrant. Lebanon does not have an extradition agreement with Japan. Ghosn had also been expected to make a statement on a report submitted by Lebanese lawyers that he had travelled to neighbouring Israel as head of Renault-Nissan. Lebanon and neighbouring Israel are still technically at war. In early 2008, Ghosn travelled to Israel to announce the mass production of electric vehicles there with the cooperation of Renault-Nissan. At a press conference in Beirut on Wednesday, Ghosn apologised to the Lebanese people for having visited the neighbouring country. "I went as the head of Renault," he said. "I went as a Frenchman because of a contract between Renault and an Israeli company," said Ghosn, who holds French, Lebanese and Brazilian nationalities.
  24. So many animals lose their lives every day for meat and it's actually such a cruel practice. No, we're not trying to spread some vegan agenda, but this one particular animal pleading to be spared is too heartbreaking. Reportedly, a cow in China literally begged to be spared from being slaughtered by kneeling down in front of the butcher with tears in its eyes. To make matters worse, the cow was also pregnant. The incident happened in Shantou in Guangdong Province of China and even though it's very sad how the cow had to beg to stay alive, the entire thing at least has a happy ending. An insider named Lin Wangbo told Chinese news outlet The Paper, according to a translation provided by Daily Mail, that "After it arrived at the slaughterhouse and when the butcher tried to drag it off the truck and into the house to be butchered, it knelt and kept crying." © YouTube In the end, the people of China came to the cow's rescue. After the video of the entire thing was uploaded on Chinese social media platforms, it went viral and people came together to save the poor cow. Reportedly, everyone managed to collect 24,950 yuan - â¹2.5 lakh - to buy the cow and was released at a local Buddhist temple where it was happily adopted. Another 4,000 yuan - â¹41,000 - were also raised to give to the temple to cover all the expenses. © YouTube See, great things can be achieved when people work together. I'm just glad the cow is alive and at a better place where it will hopefully receive the love and care it needs. View the full article
  25. Last May, Trent Alexander-Arnold produced a masterpiece that played a key role in Liverpool's 4-0 comeback in the second-leg of the 2019 UEFA Champions League semifinal. Showcasing great awareness and thriving on quick thinking, the 21-year-old caught Barcelona goalkeeper and their defenders napping to set up Divock Origi for an easy goal. ð´ @trentaa98 made his @LFC debut 3 years ago today! He's been putting it on a plate for attackers ever since... ð¯#UCL pic.twitter.com/vmOyMFCf47 — UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) October 25, 2019 The memories of Alexander-Arnold's slickest corner kick once again came to the fore during Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Valencia in the Spanish Super Cup on 9th January. The deadlock between the two Spanish teams was broken by Toni Kroos whose quick thinking saw him scoring straight from a corner kick. ð©ðª This view of Toni Kroos' corner kick goal against Valencia yesterday is absolutely brilliant. Perfection from the German maestro. ðð± pic.twitter.com/vvTCyu5BuH — FutbolBible (@FutbolBible) January 9, 2020 Getting ready to take the corner kick, the German midfielder saw Valencia goalkeeper Jaume Domenech organising his defence before quickly rolling the ball into the corner quadrant and kicking it with impeccable precision straight into the back of the net. The 30-year-old took the corner so quickly that it didn't just catch the opposition goalie and players by surprise, but also the broadcasters who were still busy showing how Real Madrid got the corner. Taking the lead, Real Madrid found their second goal of the night in the 39th minute via Isco who pounced on a Luka Modric shot that ricocheted off the Valencia defender and came straight on his feet. After missing out in the first half, Modric eventually got his name on the scoresheet with a cheeky finish past the futile dive of Domenech. The only consolation for Valencia, the Copa del Rey holders, came through a penalty when Daniel Parejo's powerful shot went past Thibaut Courtois. For a team that is still finding its groove, Real Madrid and their fans would have surely been happy with the result, but it was Kroos who grabbed all the limelight for his brilliant corner-kick goal.
