  1. If you really want to look for a silver lining in the proverbial cloud that this self-imposed quarantine is turning out to be, it is the fact that we actually have a lot of time on our hands. © iStock Instead of travelling for two and a half hours to work and back, and wasting our productive time on those endless coffee and cigarette breaks, we can just sit and quickly wrap up our work, and still have time to play games, catch up on our reading list, or even better, connect better with our families or roommates. © iStock One more important thing that we ought to be doing is introspect really deep within and take a good hard look at our style and grooming habits. We are not talking about how you should style yourself or what grooming routines you should follow. No. Instead, you should take a good hard look at your habits and see whether your current habits actually suit you and the environment, or do they not. Here are some things that you should consider doing when you are under a self-imposed quarantine, and have all the time in the world. Who knows, perhaps this is exactly what sustainable practices needed to gain some traction: 1. Clear Out Your Closet © iStock First and foremost, start by Marie Kondo-ing your closet. The idea is to give away all the pieces that you do not wear often, or pieces that make you second guess yourself. The easiest way to go about it is, to pick an easy individual piece of garment and accessory that you own and ask yourself, 'is this something that I have worn at least twice in the last 6 months'? If the answer is yes, the piece stays. If no, then ask yourself, does the piece spark joy when you see yourself in it, or do you feel confident when you wear the piece. If the answer is still a no, the piece should be given away. Simple, right? 2. Follow A Proper Selfcare Regime © iStock Next up, you need to set up proper self-care regimes, especially when it comes to grooming, skincare and sleeping. Following proper regimes will not only allow you to track your progress, but it is also a disciplined way of inculcating good habits. Furthermore, youâll also have the time to actually see whether the products that you typically use, suit your needs or not, and what better alternatives should you be looking for. 3. Forget Online Shopping For Sometime © iStock Okay, this is perhaps the most important thing in this entire endeavour of inculcating good habits. For some time, you need to stop browsing online shopping portals for clothes, and accessories. There are two reasons for this. First and foremost, refer to the first pointer. Secondly, you need to seriously ask yourself do you really need to buy so much stuff, so regularly. Itâs actually a good thing that most online retailers are now limiting their deliveries only to essential commodities that are required for sustaining oneâs self. 4. Raid Your Kitchen For Some Cool DIY Home Remedies © iStock This is something that our mothers and grandmothers will swear by. Assuming that you have a rather decently stocked kitchen, and cook your own meals, more often than getting food delivered, your kitchen and refrigerator will have a ton of stuff that can be used for a number of skin ailments, as well as to boost your immunity. Turmeric, coconut oil, mustard oil, lemons, egg whites, are just some of the stuff that work wonders for your skin. Ginger, lemons, cloves and bay leaves etc. go a long way in boosting your immunity and keep the regular cold and flu at bay. And because all of these are natural ingredients, they have very little chances of giving you an adverse reaction. 5. Think Hard About All Your Wasteful Purchases © iStock Finally think hard about all your wasteful purchases that you made throughout the year. Did you really need that one more suit for that wedding? Should youâve bought that face wash, the one that now just sits in your bathroom cabinet, without reading up about it? You will be surprised to see that thanks to the convenience of online shopping, there are tons and tons of things that you buy without sparing a thought. The realisation that follows, may lead you to start upcycling your old clothes and go for grooming routines that use stuff from your surroundings. View the full article
  2. With the COVID-19 quarantine by and large in effect for the foreseeable future now, things will be going haywire. The pressure to work from home and stay productive, the constant bickering of siblings and family members, and the manner in which we feel trapped in our own houses, is surely going to get on our nerves. © iStock It is very easy under such circumstances to panic and actually lose sight of things that are actually important. Taking proper care of yourself is one such thing. Now, you may be washing your hands every now and then, and cleaning your hands with some really good hand sanitizers which ultimately, are actually quite harsh on your skin. We recommend you follow what this dermatologist says about taking care of your hands that have gone dry from constant washing. © iStock But what about your face? How do you take care of your skin when youâre under quarantine, and supposedly safe from all the external factors that normally cause havoc on your skin. Well, when youâre under quarantine, you need a skincare routine even more, simply because you lose track of things at times. Also, do you really want to take risks right now? © iStock Here are six super easy steps that can actually prove to be quite effective and useful for your skin, especially when youâre under quarantine. Inculcate A Sleeping Routine © iStock First and foremost, inculcate a proper sleeping routine and follow it. Since youâll be spending possibly the entire day at home, you may get complacent and do things lazily. Especially on the days when youâre working from home. Instead of staying up late at night, binge-watching your favourite shows, stick to a proper sleeping routine, wherein you get at least eight hours of sleep. Now, thanks to the quarantine, you actually donât have an excuse not to sleep for eight hours or more if needed. Wash Your Face At Least Twice A Day © iStock Given that you have to wash your hands quite a few times throughout the day, it would behove you if you wash your face as well. Wash your face at least twice a day, with a face wash that suits your skin type. Also, go for something that is friendly for the environment and also on your skin, otherwise, you risk drying up your skin, which will make it all itchy and sensitive. Moisturise Thoroughly © iStock Pick a moisturiser that suits your skin, and make sure you actually use it thoroughly. Even though you might think that there is no need to moisturise your face regularly because youâre always indoors anyway, you actually should be moisturising your face, on a regular basis. Given you will have to wash your face regularly, do not skip on moisturising. Avoid Touching Your Face Unnecessarily © iStock Your hands touch all sorts of surfaces and things through the day. God knows what all germs and pathogens they pick up. Health experts, medical professionals and even the WHO suggests keeping your hands away from your face. Unless it is imperative and an unavoidable circumstance, avoid touching your face. If just have to touch your face, to adjust your spectacles, or to itch or something, rub your hands with some hand sanitiser first. Exfoliate At Least Once A Week © iStock This is actually somewhat a leisurely activity, but again, something that you should go for often. Exfoliate your skin using a slightly coarse cleansing agent. We suggest you go for something like multani clay, or some other form of clay. That not only helps your skin in maintaining its pH balance, but also gives it a thorough and deep cleansing. Stay Hydrated © iStock Finally, and this is the most important thing that you can do, keep yourself hydrated properly. Drink at least 2 litres of water every day, even though you may not feel thirsty that often. To take things to the next level, use a face mist, or some micellar water. View the full article
  3. For people like myself, these might be more or less the most precious days of our life in recent times. Iâm sorry if I sound apathetic, that isnât my intention. But you see, for the likes of us who are lucky enough to be working from home during this time of the COVID-19 crisis, thereâs little else to crib about. © Pexels With little to no unnecessary interaction with the outside world, no draining away in hours-long commute but instead being able to enjoy the luxury of working in my pyjamas with my favourite snack handy, trust me, you wonât find me complaining about this self-quarantining or social distancing scenario any time soon. No, this isnât 'easy' for me. Iâm not an introvert per se. An ambivert maybe? Though I personally think I might be an omnivert instead. Anyhow, letâs leave aside all that self-prognosis for now. The point I am basically trying to make here is that although I am enjoying this entire work-from-home situation, many of you out there might be having a hard time dealing with all this peace and quiet, and basically all the free time you now have to kill. © Pexels Before you go ahead and sabotage your âperfectâ little life under the influence of quarantine-induced boredom, let me help you with 5 stupid things you should avoid during this time: 1. Donât Go Back To Stalking Your Ex Online © Pinterest/Lindsay Mound I know the temptation is real. I know you might have come a long way since the âlast timeâ. But what I also know, is that itâs easy to give in at a time like this when you are looking for ways to âentertainâ yourself at home. And what better way to do that than getting an update on what your ex has been up to, right? Wrong. You might end up regretting it big time, so spare yourself the mood-spoiler. 2. Donât Make That TikTok Account © YouTube/Tik tok I know every other celeb under home-quarantine is doing this right now, and it seems like a decent idea to give it a try âjust onceâ but thatâs where the trap lies! Trust me, I had given in once myself and I say it from experience, that this is one rabbit-hole thereâs no coming back from. I legit had to switch to a qwerty-keypad phone for a few weeks to get out of that zone. Just, donât do it. 3. Donât Go On An Online Shopping Spree © Pexels Donât even get me started on why this might be a potential health hazard, but whether you believe that or not, don't succumb to the urge to go online shopping. You might be an impulsive buyer or a believer of the goodness of retail therapy, but none of those are good enough reasons to put your cards to use at the checkout page right now. The urge to do something âusefulâ with our free time can lead to a dwindling bank account and a bunch of crap you donât really need. 4. Donât Try Social Media Challenges To Kill Time © Twitter I donât need to explain this any more than what you think it means. Be it something like the dangerous #SkullBreaker challenge or the wild #CoronavirusChallenge, it isnât worth it to lose your mind or risk your life over such reckless deeds. Trust me, there are far more entertaining and safe ways of killing your time. Such as sleeping in your cosy, little bed! 5. Donât Turn Into A Junk-ie © Pexels No, I donât mean like a drug abuser (though donât do that either), but more like a junk food ordering junk-ie. That was me trying to be f(p)unny, liked it? But really, I know how perfect it seems that a few clicks on your phone could fetch you all the greasy goodness in the world, but now isnât the time to let your inner glutton out. Itâs risky and constant reliance on junk/outside food can really send your health for a toss by the time the quarantine is called off. So Iâd suggest you avoid doing that. View the full article
  4. The Indian government is doing everything possible to address the coronavirus epidemic that's been on a rise in the country. Gathering of more than 50 people for any occasion is banned and heavy lockdowns are instructed in maximum coronavirus-hit regions like Maharashtra and Kerala. The Kejriwal-led government in Delhi has also imposed a ban on people assembling for meetings, social gatherings, going to the gym, spa, movies or nightclubs until the virus is taken care of completely. © Twitter Amidst all this, the Maharashtra state government has gone beyond basic and normal protocol and is stamping everyone who has been sent to home quarantine amid scare over the pandemic. As per the reports, the health minister, Rajesh Tope said the left hand would be stamped to identify those who are under home quarantine. The decision was taken at a meeting held by top officials, which was chaired by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackrey, when almost 39 cases of COVID-19 were detected out of which 7 suspected patients escaped from treatment centres in the last few days. Greater Mumbai's Municipal Commissioner Pravin Pardeshi issued an order to all officials concerned at hospitals and the airport, asking them to stamp the left hands of those who are under home quarantine, with their dates of isolation and with an ink which would last them at least 14 days. "It is not a crime if somebody is infected by Covid-19. They must be given proper medical treatment and psychological support. The Epidemic Diseases Act has been invoked in the interest of the people and the district administration must create awareness on it," the Chief Minister said. Besides, the Health Minister stated that a stamp with somewhat permanent ink, the ones used for voters during election, will be applied on the left hand, indicating "that person/patient is under compulsory home quarantine" till March 31. "This will help other people identify them if they break home quarantine and mix among the public during their home isolation period," he said. © Twitter The government has also stated that an apt punishment for those who breach the home quarantine rule is applicable and anyone who does so will be sent to the government quarantine facility. Well, Maharashtra government is doing what it can to limit the cases in the state. Also, overcrowded spaces such as train stations etc in Maharashtra are also under a strict lockdown, along with everything else done to curtail crowds and initiate isolation. Better to issue certificate of 100% quarantine. Stamp will disappear in few days. â Kamal (@Kamal36754111) March 16, 2020Teja main hu, mark idhar hai. â Desi Engineer (@Engihumor) March 16, 2020Jis desh me log vote karne ke baad ink bhi mita lete hain wahan ye thappa mitana kaunsi badi baat hai â Boring (@Boringism) March 16, 2020ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£https://t.co/icukGoWQRN â Bhavesh Lodha (@bhav2406) March 16, 2020Awesome idea â Mrs Rà w°à t ð®ð³ (@rawat_shivali) March 17, 2020When going gets tough...

  7. Realme has been doing some amazing work behind the scenes to bring some of the phones in the market. Last year, the Realme 5 series was a hit for the company, and now they're back with the Realme 6 series, with major upgrades across the board. Today, I'll be talking about the Realme 6 Pro and tell you why I love this phone. I've been using the Realme 6 Pro as my primary phone for quite some time now and I think it's currently the best phone to buy in the market if your budget is under Rs. 20,000. 1. Design & Build Quality I've said this in the past and I'll say it again - Realme makes some of the most beautiful looking phones in the market right now. The Realme 6 Pro doesn't have a glass back, but it looks absolutely stunning. It's a mixture of glass and plastic. So it's not the most premium-feeling material in the world, but it'll definitely attract some eyeballs. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer As you can see, I've been using the "Lightning Blue" variant of the phone and it's got this crazy lighting design at the back. The orange variant also looks equally stunning in my opinion. The phone has got a decent weight to it and it has all the necessary features that you'd expect from a phone like a USB Type C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack and more. There's a quad-camera setup at the back with minimal Realme branding. The fingerprint scanner has been moved to the side of the phone, and I think it's a great move. The Realme 6 Pro has a single firing speaker at the bottom and it supports Dolby Atmos hi-res audio quality. You can also add a micro SD card to expand the storage, which is great. Overall, I have nothing but good things to say about the Realme 6 Pro's design and build quality. Good job, Realme! 2. Display The display is one of my favourite features of the Realme 6 Pro and I think that's what kept me from switching to a different device even after my testing period. You're looking at a 6.6-inch FHD+ IPS panel with support for a 90Hz refresh rate. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Yes, it's not an AMOLED panel like the one found on the Galaxy M31. So you're probably going to miss seeing deep blacks and punchy colors on the screen. That being said, the high-refresh rate, especially in this price range, will definitely make up for it. The display is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and it also has a punch-hole cutout for the dual selfie cameras. The display looks modern thanks to the punch-hole cutout and low bezels, and the high refresh rate is just icing on the cake. During my usage, I found that the panel manages to hold a high refresh rate without any issues. It also gets decently bright to use outdoors. If you've never used a high-refresh-rate panel before, then you must check this out. It's a feature that we don't see often in mid-range phones, and it's a great way to make more people experience the 90Hz refresh rate. I am sure you'll love interacting with the phone using this display. 3. Performance The Realme 6 Pro is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 720G processor which is specifically built for phones in this price range. I am not going to throw in some crazy numbers and specs of the processor, but I'll just say that it's a great processor. The processor is coupled with up to 12GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. I've been using the high-end variant of the phone for testing and the performance is pretty impressive. You absolutely don't need to worry about the performance. This is one of those phones that can handle anything you throw at it. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Mid-range phones have gotten a lot better over the years and the Realme 6 Pro with the Snapdragon 720G is pushing it further at this point. This is currently the phone powered by this particular processor, so we'll have more comparisons when other phones drop in the market. Realme has also optimized the software on this phone very well. Together, both the hardware and the software manages to give you a solid performance while using the phone. The Realme 6 Pro runs Realme UI out of the box that's based on Android 10. This is the latest version of Andriod out there on the market, so it's good that you're getting the best in the business. I did notice some glitches from time to time while the phone though. For instance, the software would just freeze on me while using a particular, forcing me to close the app altogether and start over again. I think this is something that they can fix with future updates, but I think I should mention that in the review. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer As for gaming, I did play a couple of games of PUBG Mobile and Call OF Duty Mobile on the Realme 6 Pro and it was pretty good. The 90Hz display definitely helps with gaming on supported titles. But it's safe to say that the phone can handle almost all the titles without any stutters. 4. Camera The Realme 6 Pro sports a quad-camera setup at the back which includes a 64MP primary sensor made by Samsung. It's coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a 2MP macro lens. On the front, there are two cameras for selfies. One is a normal 16MP wide-angle lens, whereas the other one is an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens. As you can see, the phone has a pretty versatile set of cameras. So how's the performance? Well, here are some samples that I managed to shoot while testing the phone over a few days- I'd say the images shot during the day with enough light turned out pretty well. There's a lot of details to zoom into thanks to that 64MP sensor and the dynamic range is also good. You can also use the ultra-wide lens to get more of the scene into the frame, but it's not as good as the other sensors. Thanks to the new 2X and 5X zoom modes, you can close in on the subject like never before on a Realme phone. It comes handy but I won't recommend using the 5x zoom mode unless you have a tripod. As for the nigh mode pictures, they're pretty decent. The images will definitely come out better at night while using a tripod, but I managed to get some sweet shots even without one. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Overall, I think the Realme 6 Pro has really good cameras. Obviously, it's not competing with the flagships out there, but I think it's one of the best sets of cameras that you can get in this price range. 5. Battery Life The Realme 6 Pro packs a 4,300 mAh battery under the hood that keeps the lights on. The battery also comes with 30W Flash Charge support, which is great. During my usage, believe it or not, I was getting over 7 hours on screen-on time on a single charge, which insane. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Even if moderate to heavy usage, I think this phone will last easily for a day. And as I said, it comes with fast charge support, so you don't have to worry about charging times too. I was able to charge the phone for just an hour and get a lot of juice. 6. The Final Say The Realme 6 Pro starts at Rs 16,999 for the base variant and goes all the way up to Rs 18,999 for the high-end variant. So even if you're going for the high-end variant of the phone with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, you'll be shelling out less than Rs 20,000. At that price, you're essentially getting a beautiful-looking device with great features like a 90Hz panel, good performance (thanks to Snapdragon 720G SoC), impressive battery life, and a versatile set of cameras. It's crazy how you can get so many cool features on a phone that costs less than Rs. 20,000. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Realme 6 Pro is directly competing with the Poco X2. While there are a lot of good things to say about the Poco X2 as well, we like what Realme has done with the Realme 6 Pro to make a well-rounded phone. I am just going to wrap this up by saying that the Realme 6 Pro is one of the best mid-range phones I've used in a while, which is why I am not going to hesitate to recommend it to anybody who's looking to buy a phone under Rs. 20,000.

  8. WWE Elimination Chamber 2020 just ended with a lot of good, bad and ugly matches but even though not a lot was expected out of the pre-WrestleMania pay-per-view, it turned out to be relatively decent. The main event saw the Shayna Baszler eliminate every single one of her opponents to put out one of the most dominating performances in the history of the event. With the victory, Baszler also booked herself the spot to compete against Becky Lynch for the Raw women's championship at the biggest stage of them all. Well, @YaOnlyLivvOnce is officially in the match, and this is what @QoSBaszler thinks of that. #WWEChamber pic.twitter.com/HnmN7WR25E â WWE (@WWE) March 9, 2020Yet another highlight from the evening was âThe Undertakerâ ruining âThe Phenomenal Oneâ AJ Stylesâ show with a chokeslam in the centre of the ring. This was obviously another promo move to add to the build-up for a potential match between the two superstars at WrestleMania 36. âThe Undertakerâ has one of the most breathtaking entrances in history. The dong goes off, the whole arena darkens and when the lights come back again, the âDeadmanâ can be standing at right there as if his supernatural abilities made him teleport inside the ring. It used to feel magical, king of eerie but, most importantly, it was very cool whenever the wrestling veteran did that in his days of prime. But one of the fans of the pro-wrestling world, with the eyes of a hawk, decided to ruin all those memories of us from our childhood when he shared this image from his Twitter account: I spy with my little eye... look, itâs Undertakerâs Batcave! #WWEChamber pic.twitter.com/fZfhX2RuoM â Cam (@cowboycamo2019) March 9, 2020After wreaking havoc within 30 seconds of his appearance, the arenaa goes dark again and *poof*, âThe Undertakerâ is gone. However, ever since the Twitter user shared that picture, people arenât really committed to the whole vibe anymore. Undertaker's appearance seems impressive until you realize that he's now again lying under the ring with his urine jar. #WWEChamber â Kayfabe News (@KayfabeNews) March 9, 2020Upon a little more web-surfing, the video of how the wrestler conducts his magic could be found on YouTube and personally, Iâd not suggest you to watch it if you do not want to ruin the memories of âThe Undertakerâ which resides in your heart right now. Mark William Calaway, the man who has kept the mirage of âThe Deadmanâ alive for multiple decades, is obsessed with being an entertainer, it is the only thing he knows. We have seen him in the best of his physical condition and his worst. We have seen him as the âAmerican Badassâ, as the leader of the âMinistry of Darknessâ, as one-half of the âBrothers of Destructionâ, and he has given his everything to the profession. © Imgur For him to stay still under the ring for hours and hours, to sell out the stadium with his performance once he comes out from underneath, and to remain consistent with his gimmick for so many years, it is testament to the arrogance of these old-school pro-wrestlers, that make us fall in love with them time and again.

  9. Unprecedented restrictions were signed into law overnight by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte
  10. 2019 was a pretty good year for smartphones. Particularly, the mid-range phones have got a lot better as they're getting buffed with features that are mostly found only in premium phones. Now, things are only getting better in 2020 and it's safe to say that if you're buying a phone for Rs. 25,000 today, you're not missing out on much. So, to help you buy the best phones out there, we've made a list mentioning all the phones you can buy if your budget is under Rs. 25,000. 1. Redmi K20 Pro © YouTube/ Mrwhosetheboss Xiaomi's Redmi K20 Pro has received a lot of price cuts over the months since its launch and therefore has now made it to our list of phones under Rs. 25,000. This one is a really good phone with a glass back, a FullHD+ AMOLED panel, a triple camera setup and more. It's also powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC, which is a really good chipset for the price. You can also go with the non-pro version of the phone which is powered by Snapdragon 730G chipset. 2. Poco X2 © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Poco is finally back after the hiatus but we didn't get the flagship we were waiting for. Instead, we got the Poco X2 which is powered by Snapdragon 730G chipset. For the price, it has some really good features like a 120Hz panel, a 64MP camera and a 4,500 mAh battery with fast charging. You can read our review of the phone right here. 3. Realme X2 © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Realme has a ton of phones on sale right now but the Realme X2 is one that comes to our mind when you talk about the best phones under Rs. 25,000. It's powered by the Snapdragon 730G chipset and comes with things like a 64MP camera, great build quality, and amazing battery life. This phone is definitely worth considering and you can read our review of the Realme X2 here. Realme also has a lot of other phones, so be sure to check them out as well. 4. Samsung Galaxy M31 © YouTube/ Beebom Samsung's M Series of phones are really popular and the new in the series is the Galaxy M31. The Galaxy M31 is now the phone that's taking things forward for Samsung in this price segment and now it has an updated design and internals. The highlight of the phone is its 6,000 mAh battery with which you should be able to use the phone for 2 days straight, if you stretch. View the full article
  11. More often than not movies inspire us to do things that we wouldnât have imagined doing otherwise but we often forget that itâs all fiction. Also, actors usually have a team of professional people and other safety measures around them while performing dangerous stunts. However, recently a man was filmed on TikTok hanging out of a doorway of a moving train. The seven-second-long video, filmed by a passenger travelling on the train, shows a man hanging out of the doorway of the moving train. Only a second into the video, he loses his grip and falls off the train, almost getting run over as people watching the stunt scream in horror. Later at the end of the video, the man is sitting up as the train speeds past him and a passenger on it motions for him to stay still.

  12. Kamyab Jawan Programme: 200,000 to 300,000 youth likely to get loans under YESISLAMABAD: Around 200,000 to 300,000 budding entrepreneurs are likely to get benefit under the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES), a component of the government’s flagship Kamyab Jawan project launched to offer soft loan facility to those having workable business ideas. “Only 15 to 25 per cent of the total applicants may get the concessionary loans under the ‘YES’ as it seems that some 50 to 60 per cent apparently applied in haste and got rejected for having no business plans,” Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs Usman Dar informed APP while highlighting the current statistics of the loan scheme. YES was launched under the banner of Kamyab Jawan Programme in October last year under which Rs 100 billion allocated for the youth and loans ranging from Rs 100,000 to Rs 5 million would be disbursed among the youth coming up with practicable business ideas. “Some 1.3 million youth applied for the loan scheme in merely 15 days which brings it into international spotlight as a team of the United Nations has discussed this Kamyab Jawan programme for attracting such a large proportion of youth,” the special assistant said. The scheme was almost in the launching process as the applications were being scrutinized and verified by making phone calls, doing Smart Message Service (SMS) and carrying out a third party verification of the applicants. He assured that the allocated money belonged to youth and would be spent on deserving ones. He said the loans would be distributed on equitable basis as Rs25 billion had been dedicated for the women under YES exclusively. Initially, the soft loans would be distributed in Sindh and then extended to the other provinces. “Prime Minister Imran Khan will distribute loan cheques among the successful applicants of the Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme (YES) from Sindh on January 27,” he informed.

  14. Due to the ongoing protest in Delhi against the CAA and NRC, Delhi's Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has recently given a thumbs up to Delhi Police Commissioner to have the power to detain people under the NSA (National Security Act, 1980) from January 19, 2020 to April 18, 2020. The Delhi Police claims it is a routine order that is regulated every quarter in order to maintain law and order in the country. However, keeping the current scenario of the country in mind, the police can detain any individual under this act who is seen as a threat to the national security or tries to harm the law and order in any way without any charges. The detained individual under this act is not charged by the police. © BCCL What Is The National Security Act? The NSA was brought in by the Indian parliament as an act in the year 1980. The act is focused on maintaining law and order in the country and is used for detention for individuals who try to hamper the law and order of the state or country. The act applies to the whole of India except Jammu and Kashmir. The Act gives power to state and central government to detain people in order to prevent them from acting against the national security of the country or if they hamper relations of India with any foreign country or break the law and order in any way or if they disturb public order as well. NSA lets the official detain an individual without any charge sheet in the court and can detain the individual for up to twelve months. © BCCL Now, you must be wondering how is this any different from regular detention. Here you go! Usually, when a person is detained, he or she is informed the basis on which the detention took place or on what grounds they have been taken into custody but it is not the same with NSA. NSA gives unambiguous power to the government to keep the person in jail for days without informing them about the grounds of their charges and their right to bail is taken away. Moreover, they aren't allowed to talk to their lawyers. The detained cannot take their lawyer's help and can be detained for up to 12 months. A similar order was also issued on January 14 in Andhra Pradesh. View the full article
  15. American troops who were at the Al-Asad base where Iran fired a volley of missiles on Wednesday, knew an attack was imminent and had taken precautions two-and-a-half hours before it took place, according to a report. During an exclusive tour of the military base that came under attack this week, a CNN journalist was told that most US troops were either flown out or had been sheltering in bunkers by 11:00pm local time when the base came under attack. At around 1:30am, Iran fired multiple missiles at the base, targeting only the US areas of it that roughly comprise a quarter of the entire area. Referring to the incident as a "miracle", US troops--speaking for the first time ever since the attack that sent shockwaves across the world occurred--said some soldiers remained outside throughout the attack as missiles hit targets just a few feet away from their bunkers. US troops said they knew Iran would attack the Al-Asad base. However, they weren't aware about the nature of the attack. One of the bunkers at the Al-Asad base. PHOTO BY: CNNIran brought tensions to a new high between Washington and Tehran when it fired a volley of missiles at Al-Asad base--just one of two military bases in Iraq that came under attack that day. Tehran said the attack was retaliation for the US drone strike that killed top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad. Iraq Prime Minister Adil Abdul Mahdi said Iran had sent a verbal warning that certain US targets in the country would be hit. A top diplomatic source told CNN that Iraq conveyed the information to US about "which bases would be hit" after the message was received from Tehran. The attack, which lasted for two hours, stopped at dawn. That is when US troops came out to ascertain the damage caused by the missiles. Ruined remains of a living quarters. PHOTO BY: CNNUS President Donald Trump had visited the base last year to spend time with American soldiers there. "We came in, we felt very safe coming in. It was a pretty difficult journey in certain ways, but we felt very, very good, very safe," Trump had said about the base. The Al-Asad military base lies in Iraq's Anbar province. It is one of the oldest and largest military bases that houses American troops.
  16. The Committee to Protect Journalists and other press freedom activists hold a candlelight vigil to mark the anniversary of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi — at the kingdom's consulate in Turkish city of Istanbul — in front of the Saudi Embassy in Washington, US, October 2, 2019. REUTERS/Sarah Silbiger/FilesDUBAI: Saudi Arabia on Monday sentenced five people to death and three more to jail terms totalling 24 years over the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul in October last year. Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, was killed in the Kingdom's consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, after entering to obtain documents for his marriage. The Saudi public prosecutor did not name the sentenced individuals on Monday. But the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, in a report issued in June, had identified 11 individuals on trial and those facing death sentences, based on information from various governments’ sources. Read more: UN says evidence shows Khashoggi murder planned Following are profiles of some of those who have been held, investigated or fired in Saudi Arabia over the Khashoggi case, based on media reports and photos, plus information from officials and sources. Reuters has not been able to contact the individuals. Maher Abdulaziz MutrebThe general was an aide to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s former right-hand man Saud al-Qahtani for information security and the lead negotiator inside the consulate, according to a senior Saudi official. The UN report said Mutreb was involved in planning the operation days before it happened and was recorded referring to Khashoggi as “the sacrificial lamb”. Mutreb is a senior intelligence officer and in the security team for the crown prince, Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler and known as MbS. He appeared in photographs with the prince on official visits last year to the United States and Europe. Also read: Saudi court sentences five to death over Khashoggi murder According to a Saudi official, Mutreb was selected for the Istanbul operation because he already knew Khashoggi from their time working together at the Saudi embassy in London and could convince him to return to Saudi Arabia. Salah Mohammed TubaigyTubaigy is a forensic expert at the Saudi interior ministry’s criminal evidence department, according to a biography by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties. In the Istanbul operation, he was supposed to remove evidence such as fingerprints or proof of the use of force, according to the Saudi official. Tubaigy does not appear to have been a core team member but to have been specifically recruited to dispose of the body, the UN report said. Related: Saudi crown prince warns against 'exploiting' Khashoggi murder Also facing death sentences were Fahad Shabib al-Balawi and Waleed Abdullah al-Shehri — both members of the Saudi Royal Guard — and Turki Muserref al-Shehri, an intelligence officer, according to the UN report. The three were among 10 Saudi officials listed in the report as being at the consulate at the time of the murder. Others who were on trialAhmed Mohammed al-AsiriThe former deputy head of general intelligence was among those sacked by King Salman. The prosecutor said he ordered the operation to repatriate — but not kill — Khashoggi. The deputy public prosecutor said on Monday he was acquitted for insufficient evidence. Asiri joined the military in 2002, according to Saudi media reports, and was spokesperson for the Saudi-led coalition that intervened in Yemen’s civil war in 2015. He was named deputy chief of foreign intelligence by royal decree in April 2017. Mustafa Mohammed al-MadaniMadani led the intelligence efforts for the 15-member team in Istanbul, the Saudi official said. According to that official, Madani donned Khashoggi’s clothes, eyeglasses, and Apple watch and left through the back door of the consulate in an attempt to make it look like the journalist had walked out of the building. Read more: Report says Khashoggi's final words were 'I can't breathe' The UN report identifies Madani — who wore a false beard — as a brigadier general employed at the royal palace. Also on trial were Mohammed Saad al-Zahrani and Saif Saad al-Qahtani — whom the UN report said were at the consulate when the killing occurred — and Mansour Othman Abahussain, who was at the consul general’s residence, as well as Muflih Shaya al-Muslih, a member of the consular staff. Not on trialSaud al-QahtaniQahtani, seen as the right-hand man to Prince Mohammed, was removed as a royal court adviser and is the highest-profile figure implicated in the incident. Qahtani was questioned by the public prosecutor but not charged. He joined the royal court under the late King Abdullah. He rose to prominence as a confidant in Prince Mohammed’s inner circle. Also read: Khashoggi's fiancée displeased over Italy Super Cup being played in SA He regularly spoke on behalf of MbS and has given direct orders to senior officials including in the security apparatus, sources with ties to the royal court said. Qahtani had tried to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia after he moved to Washington a year ago fearing reprisals for his views, according to people close to the journalist and the government. Qahtani ran a WhatsApp group with local newspaper editors, dictating the court line. In August 2017, he asked followers on Twitter to flag accounts for a blacklist for monitoring. Related: Saudi admits journalist Khashoggi dismembered in consulate The Saudi official said Qahtani authorised Mutreb to conduct a negotiation for Khashoggi’s return to the kingdom. The Saudi public prosecutor said a travel ban has been imposed on Qahtani while the investigation continues but Gulf-based sources have told Reuters he is at liberty and still operates discreetly. Mohammad al-OtaibiMohammad al-Otaibi was the Istanbul Consul General at the time of Khashoggi’s murder. He gave Reuters a tour of the consulate four days afterwards, opening cupboards in an effort to show Khashoggi was not there. The UN rapporteur’s report published recorded conversations Otaibi had with other Saudi officials days before Khashoggi’s murder in which he discussed “a top secret mission”. Otaibi left Istanbul and has not been heard from since. On Monday, the Saudi deputy public prosecutor said Otaibi had been released after being questioned.

  18. If your 9-5 job is not really an 8-hour shift but extends to at least 12 hours on a good day, you know your skin will bear its brunt in the form of under-eye pits, among other things. Not getting enough sleep is one of the main factors behind this. It also results in eye darkness and puffiness and here are seven affordable ways to get rid of dark circles. 1. Use Retinoids With consistent use, retinol-enriched products can stimulate the production of collagen, an essential protein. They are also responsible for skin volume and support, so they're definitely good for you. © Getty Images You can try Clinique Fresh Pressed Clinical Daily, as this product has active retinol which will help in boosting collagen. © Clinique 2. Sleep On Your Back If dark circles are something you experience more in the mornings, one solution could be to sleep on your back and use an extra pillow so the fluid doesn't pool overnight. © Getty Images 3. Use Under-Eye Lightening Products In Case Of Pigmentation Increased pigmentation can also be a major factor behind dark under-eye pits. Look for products with ingredients like topical lightening agents such as vitamin C, kojic acid, and licorice extract. You could try Mamaearth Under Eye Cream. © Mamaearth 4. Take An Antihistamine Sometimes, people have darkness under the eyes due to an underlying allergy without realizing it. An antihistamine helps clear that up instantly. 5. Tea Bags A quick solution would be to try tea bags for the dark circles. This is because tea bags contain natural tannins which is a mild diuretic. Soak two eye bags in warm water and refrigerate them for a while. Place them under your eyes for a minimum of five minutes for it to work. © Getty Images 6. Get More Sleep With a standardized sleep schedule and a minimum of seven to eight hours in your routine, your dark circles will reduce considerably. 7. Use Almond Oil Essential oils like almond oil have soothing and healing properties that help lighten dark circles. © Getty Images View the full article
