  3. NEW YORK: Hundreds of thousands of merrymakers are making the annual pilgrimage to New York?s Times Square on Sunday to witness the giant New Year?s Eve ball drop at midnight, undeterred by bitter cold and an unprecedented security operation. The temperature in midtown Manhattan is expected to plunge to about 10 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 12 degrees Celsius) in the waning hours of 2017, with a ?Real Feel? of 4F (minus 15C), according to AccuWeather.com. If forecasts prove accurate, 2017 would match 1962 as the second-coldest New Year?s Eve on record. Top honors go to 1917, when the mercury in Times Square dropped to 1 F (-17C) and the wind chill came in at -18 F (-28C). Madry Cox, 16, and his sister, Mattison, 19, traveled from Lubbock, Texas, to New York with their father for what he called a ?once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? to see the glittering spectacle that unfolds in Times Square every Dec. 31. ?It?s worth bearing the cold to see the ball drop on New Year?s Eve,? he said. ?It?ll be great.? Mattison Cox said she plans on wearing plenty of clothes, while still managing to look ?a little bit cute,? and drinking coffee to stay warm. ?I?ve only seen it in the movies,? she said. ?It?s nice to come witness in person.? This year, police expect roughly 2 million people to crowd into the general vicinity of Times Square, the bow-tie-shaped plaza formed by the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue in midtown Manhattan. That is roughly the same number as last year, when the temperature at midnight was a comfortable 44F (7C). A limited number of people will have access to fenced-off viewing areas within the square, giving them an unobstructed view of the giant crystal ball mounted on a pole atop a building at the northern end of the square. After hours of waiting, the throng will witness the ball?s one-minute descent ending at the stroke of midnight, when a barrage of fireworks and confetti will punctuate the moment. ?This event every year, New Year?s Eve, is one of the things that people all over the country, all over the world, most associate with New York City,? Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters last week. He said the annual rite of winter was a source of pride for the city and ?a huge, joyous event.? Revelers will count down the final hours of 2017 with a lineup of musical acts including Nick Jonas and Neil Diamond. Mariah Carey is returning as well, no doubt hoping to make amends for last year?s highly criticized performance marred by technical difficulties. Andy Grammer will perform his hit song ?Fresh Eyes? and John Lennon?s ?Imagine? just before midnight. Then comes the ball drop, a tradition that dates to 1907, three years after New Yorkers started gathering en masse in Times Square to usher in the new year. The lighted ball, actually a geodesic sphere 12 feet (3.7 meters) in diameter and covered by illuminated crystals, will descend 70 feet (21 meters) in the final 60 seconds. Thousands of police will be on hand, some of them heavily armed, others undercover. The show of force is part of a beefed-up security plan that follows a spate of attacks in the city and around the world that authorities have labeled as terrorist. The New York Police Department has provided officers with specialized training to stop any suicide bombers in response to an attempted bombing in a Times Square subway station walkway on Dec. 11. Police will also deploy observation teams trained to spot snipers, increase the number of explosive-detecting dogs and position more officers throughout the area this year. People who want to see the New Year?s Eve musical acts and other entertainment up close in Times Square will have to pass by dogs trained to detect explosives and heavily armed officers, go through a magnetometer to check for weapons, have their bags inspected, and then repeat all those steps a second time. Police will again use dump trucks filled with sand, police cars and cement blocks to close streets starting at 11 a.m. (1600 GMT) on Sunday. About 125 parking garages in the area will be emptied of all cars and sealed.

  5. This just in, the phenomenal Indie rock band, Alt-J is coming to India to perform as one of the headliners at the Vh1 Supersonic, in Pune, between 09th to 11th February, 2018. The group are one of the most sought after names on the scene. Ever since their inception, back in the early 2000s, Alt-J have been gaining momentum and fandom across the globe. © Genius Formed by Gwil Sainsbury (guitar/bass), Joe Newman (guitar/lead vocals), Thom Sonny Green (drums) and Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards/vocals), Alt-J released their debut album, ‘An Awesome Wave', in May and September 2012, across Europe and United States, respectively. And their second album, released in September 2014, titled, ‘This Is All Yours' went straight up the charts to the number one spot. © 107.7 FM The End They've been touring like crazy through the year and marking Pune, India as a stopover on their itinerary is just what the Indian music festival goers would be looking forward to. The team at Viacom and Vh1 Supersonic are really keeping are hopes upheld; what with Major Lazer and now, Alt-J. It seems like the names, the anticipation and the stakes are getting bigger and bigger as time closes in and the days are all the more numbered. © Amazon US If last year was phenomenal for the audiences who attended Vh1 Supersonic, thanks to the likes of Eric Prydz and Macklemore, this time, the bets are even higher with Major Lazer and Alt-J. We can't wait to know more. Oh, and book your tickets soon; I have a strong feeling this one's going to be sold out like hot cakes!
  6. LONDON: British police briefly evacuated Trafalgar Square in central London on Thursday following reports that a suspicious item had been found in a nearby street but said the incident was quickly stood down and not considered to be terrorism-related. British police are on heightened alert as millions vote in parliamentary elections just days after three attackers killed eight people by driving a van at pedestrians and then stabbing people in London Bridge on Saturday night. Specialist officers were sent to Trafalgar Square, and the nearby Charing Cross railway station was also closed as a precaution before the incident was stood down.
  7. Police secure an area near a car after it plunged into pedestrians in Times Square/AFP NEW YORK: A US Navy veteran with a criminal past -- but no apparent terror motive -- rammed a car into a crowd of people in New York´s Times Square on Thursday, killing a young woman and injuring 22 other people. The midday incident sparked fear in the heart of America´s most populous city after deadly car-ramming attacks in London, Berlin and the French city of Nice, but authorities said there was no evidence the crash was terror-related. Times Square, next to the famed Broadway theater district, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the US financial capital and where police stepped up patrols in recent years after a car bomb was planted in 2010. "Based on the information we have at this moment, there is no indication that this was an act of terrorism," Mayor Bill de Blasio told a news conference at the scene. "That being said, we are reinforcing key locations around the city with our anti-terror units of the NYPD so out of an abundance of caution, major sites in the city will get additional police coverage," he added. Richard Rojas, a 26-year-old from the Bronx stopped twice in the past for drunk driving, drove his Honda onto the sidewalk at 11:55 am (1555 GMT), smashing into pedestrians for three blocks at high speed, police said. The vehicle collided with a metal pole and came to a stop at 45th Street and Broadway, police said. The vehicle flipped onto its side, smoke and flames spewing out of the hood as the injured littered the ground. An 18-year-old woman was killed and 22 other victims were injured, including the woman´s 13-year-old sister, officials said. Four were in critical condition. Witnesses spoke of fear and panic as the car hurtled through the crowd at the start of the lunch hour as people enjoyed one of the first warm days of summer in an area typically packed with tourists and office workers. "There was a maroon car just careening at high speed. It seemed like it was trying to hit everybody," witness Annie Donahey told AFP. ´Happened so quickly´ "There were people on top of the hood that were being flown over the sides and the girl who had been walking next to me... was in a heap on the ground, and she was clearly dead, and it just happened so quickly," she added. Rojas was arrested and will be tested for drugs and alcohol, police said. "The perpetrator is in custody. He´s a United States citizen and a former member of the armed forces with the United States Navy," de Blasio told reporters. New York police said Rojas was arrested for driving under the influence in 2008 and 2015, and detained earlier this month for menacing. The US Navy said he served from September 2011 to May 2014, reaching the rank of electrician´s mate fireman apprentice. He was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, and had been based in Florida, Illinois and South Carolina. Broadway announced that shows would run as scheduled Thursday but urged theatergoers to allow extra time to arrive "due to an active investigation" in the Times Square area and road closures. A pipe bomb exploded last September in New York´s Chelsea neighborhood, lightly wounding 31 people in the last terror-related incident in New York. An American of Afghan descent, Ahmad Khan Rahimi, was charged.
  8. A speeding car crashed into pedestrians on a sidewalk in New York City's busy Times Square on Thursday, killing one person and injuring at least 12, and police said the incident did not appear to be an act of terrorism, witnesses, police and news media said. A Reuters witness said one person was covered with a bloodstained blanket after the collision, which occurred around noon ET (1600 GMT) at the Midtown Manhattan tourist venue. Hundreds of thousands of people, many of them visitors from around the world, pass daily through the bustling commercial area, the heart of the Broadway theater district. The vehicle was a red Honda sedan and CBS New York Television said the driver had been removed. Television footage showed police officers restraining a man in a dark T-shirt and placing him in a police car. Witnesses said the motorist had driven against traffic and onto the sidewalk, striking pedestrians. ?Everybody was just running, everyone was concerned for their lives,? a witness told local CBS television. Seven people were being placed on stretchers, a Reuters witness said. Shoes were scattered at the scene and one person was covered by a bloodstained blanket, the Reuters witness said. AFP adds: Driver in Times Square crash was in US Navy, has criminal past The driver of the car served in the US Navy and has a criminal record, New York´s mayor said, adding authorities did not believe it was a terror attack. "Based on the information that we have at this moment, there is no indication that this was an act of terrorism," Bill de Blasio told a news conference at the scene of the incident. City authorities were nevertheless deploying extra police from anti-terror units to key locations around America´s most populous city, he said.

  10. New York City is home to several amazing places like Central Park, Empire State Building, and Statue of Liberty, to name a few. But of all the places, it’s the Times Square that draws major attention for its glitter, glamour and places like Carnegie Hall and Broadway. However, yesterday this iconic Times Square was lit in traditional colours of India and the whole world got a glimpse of how remarkable our Sikh culture is, when the ‘The Sikhs of New York’ – a non-profit organization – gathered to celebrate ‘Turban Day’. This event was aimed at spreading awareness about the Sikh community, in the wake of the growing crimes against them in the country. © Twitter It was an extraordinary sight where as many as 8000 Americans and tourist from different countries and ethnicities were seen flaunting colourful turbans. This event was celebrated to mark Vaisakhi. During this event, a proclamation by Congressman Gregory Meeks of the 5th Congressional District of New York declared April 15th as ‘Turban Day’ and commended the efforts of ‘The Sikhs of New York’, for educating other communities about the Sikh culture. Reportedly, the organisation’s founder Chanpreet Singh said that Turban Day was introduced in the year 2013 at Baruch College. He further added, “We are spreading awareness about the Sikh turban and culture. The turban is the crown of each Sikh and represents pride and valor. Turban Day provides an opportunity for those that do not wear a turban to experience a turban and learn about its significance first hand.” © Twitter The volunteers helped tie colourful turbans on New Yorkers’ heads while explaining the significance of the Sikh faith and also explained the reasons why Sikhs wear turbans. This isn’t the first time when the world saw the glimpse of how astonishing the Sikh community is. Last year, President Donald Trump’s nomination ceremony was initiated with a Sikh ‘ardas’ performed by Harmeet Dhillon, a Republican committee woman and lawyer. She offered the prayer in Punjabi and also explained its beautiful meaning. Further, not just President Trump, but Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau too seems to be mesmerized and in awe of this community and his actions echo the sentiments of every proud Punjabi across the world.
