Abbott hesitates to comment on asylum seekers’ shipwreck

The asylum seekers boat that sank off Indonesia was allegedly abandoned by its captain five days before it ran out of fuel and hit strong waves. According to the survivors, the boat was lost in the sea for days as they had no sense of direction and kept floating without having enough fuel. The boat was on its way to Australia, where the government had already decided to send all asylum seekers back to Jakarta. The accident killed at least 22 out of 120 asylum seekers whereas 70 are feared missing. The fatalities include a large number of women and children. Their remains were found on a beach in a local estuary, while 25 people were found alive. Indonesia lacks the resources and skills to search in big sea, especially at... Read more

The Green MP Caroline Lucas has been cleared of all the public order offences for her participation in protest against shale gas extraction.

Ukraine Falling to Economic Warfare and Its Own Missteps

As protests in Ukraine's eastern region turned violent on Sunday leading to the death of a Ukrainian security officer in a shootout with pro-Russian militia, Kiev threatens military action while Moscow flexes its geo-economic warfare muscles. Pro-Russian militia groups have seized government buildings and police headquarters in Ukraine's eastern city of Donetsk and Slovyanks--where the shoot-out took place--and despite a Monday morning ultimatum by the Ukrainian government, these groups have shown no sign of giving in. There has been no movement by the Ukrainian military to make good on its ultimatum; indeed, the messages have been unclear and contradictory. Acting president Oleksander Turchinov has dangled the idea of a referendum that would seek to address the demands of the region's Russian-speaking population for more autonomy. In the same breath, Turchinov on Sunday promised... Read more

Iran Expects Next Payment Under Nuclear Deal, Signaling Compliance

Iran expects to get a fifth installment this week of previously blocked overseas funds, a senior official was quoted as saying, a payment that would confirm Tehran’s compliance with an interim deal with world powers to curb its nuclear program. Separately, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said “tough issues” faced the Islamic Republic and the six major powers in negotiating a permanent accord to resolve the decade-old nuclear dispute but that it was still possible by a late July deadline. “If it (the negotiation process) goes on with the same trend, the final agreement could be reached within six months,” Rouhani, seen as a pragmatist, was quoted by news agency Tasnim as saying at a meeting in a southeastern province late on Tuesday. Rouhani, whose election last year paved the way for a major... Read more

The Geo News senior anchor Hamid Mir was shot three times soon after he arrived from Lahore at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport. Before the gunman escaped, his continuous firing had resulted in three bullets piercing thru Mir’s body, one in the pelvic area, one in the stomach whereas the other ended in his leg. After a two and a half hour operation at a private hospital in Karachi, it was informed that Mir had survived and was out of danger.    "The attack on Hamid Mir is an indicator that the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has not been able to reverse the country's appalling record of violence against journalists, despite pledges to do so," said Bob Dietz, CPJ's Asia program coordinator, "Full prosecution of the perpetrators of such crimes...

Exploring for Oil in Nicaragua: Friends in High Places

On 17 July, Nicaragua announced that US-based Noble Energy would invest $30 million in drilling two offshore wells in the Caribbean—launching Nicaragua's first-ever oil exploration. The wells will be drilled in the Tyra and Isabel blocks, which have undergone nearly 5,000 kilometers of seismic surveying since 2011. But Nicaragua's first exploration will not go off without a hitch—namely, the revival of a nasty territorial dispute with Colombia, and another with Costa Rica. In all Nicaragua is planning to offer up nearly 68,500 square kilometers of offshore Caribbean territory to explorers, dividing the area up into over 150 blocks. This brings us to Noble Energy, one of our favorites over the past couple of years, but a company whose exploration bravado could land it in hot water—so we keep a close eye on... Read more

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

He has shown the menacing influence fast bowling has on a cricket match. Irrespective of the conditions, a bowler of his ilk can threaten any batsman. Sadly, bowlers of his ilk are rare to come by, which is what makes Mitchell Johnson a greater hazard for the opposition. In practice sessions, it’s hard to replicate what Johnson does. Steyn and Morkel bowl fast too. But not as fast nor are they as life-threatening as Johnson. A bowling machine doesn’t provide the angle of his round arm action. Nor does it replicate the death stare from him, nor the moustache, nor the variety in deliveries.  Johnson still does spray the ball around. Though his control has improved a great deal, there are moments in which the old Johnson appears. For my mind,... Read more

Book review - Rang De Basanti - The Shooting Script

Frankly, it was a thrilling moment indeed to hold 'The Shooting Script' of Rang De Basanti in hand. After all, the film has managed to gain the status of a modern day classic and what better way to celebrate its positioning in Indian cinema than to own a copy of its script. Moreover, with an attractive cover design and a reputed publication house (Om Books) backing it, one hurriedly begins to browse the pages. As it turns out to be the case though, all that one actually gets to read in the book is a written word around the script.

What Women Can Learn From Menswear

{ads1}"Borrowing from the boys" is one of those fashion clichés we've never quite understood. Striped tees, destroyed denim, sneakers — isn't that the way most women dress when we're not meeting foreign dignitaries? But, having wardrobes full of unisex pieces doesn't mean men and women thinkabout fashion in the same way. Ever hear a guy wax poetic about the minutiae of stitching and button placement between a Levi's Type I and Type II jacket? Or, have you wondered why it seems so much easier for them to get dressed in the morning. Without being too essentialist about it, adopting a dude-like approach to fashion can lead ladies to some pretty major clothing revelations.

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

There was a strange object discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from an ocean explorer team from Sweden.  Quite recently, this Ocean X Team conducted a second expedition to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and found something they have never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot. “During my 20-year... Read more

AAP: let it be the voice of YOUth!

Presently, politics is the hottest topic in India as the election campaign goes on. It’s quite interesting to be able to realize what’s going on back home while living overseas in Canada. It fascinates me to watch how the political parties are crafting policies as well as designing their mottos and agendas according to trending topics or what plans and facilities people want to have in their day-to-day lifestyle. As a young reader, I was eagerly looking for the parties that were targeting young voters as well as their reasons and benefits for the younger group of population. There are many political parties in the game during this election season but I will highlight only three of them, which include the Indian National Congress Party (Congress), Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP)...

A Busy Girl's Guide To Smart Jet-Setting

{ads1}Ahhh, the "joys" of flying: being crammed into a teeny, lumpy seat that we paid way too much for; delays, with no chance of making our connection; screaming children throwing food and having tantrums — and stale almonds and rocket-fuel-flavored wine as our only comforts. There has to be a better way.  So, we turned to the savviest fliers we know for their advice. We polled 10 travel-industry insiders and perpetual globetrotters who make it their business to know which airlines have the best food, the least annoying music, the most lucrative mileage programs, the greenest fleets, seats that we can actually fall asleep in, and free (yes, free!) cocktails. Ahead, find our field guide to helping you jet-set without regret.  Scroll through to start zooming. If you want to play with miles or points, you have to have a credit card — unfortunately,...

Movie Review Dekh Tamasha Dekh

Reviews, Friday, April 18th 2014

At a time when our country is getting all geared up for the D-day [or should we say the E-day -- Election Day], the entertainment industry seems to be filled with dedications for the same. YOUNGISTAAN and BHOOTNATH RETURNS provided an interesting take on Indian politics and politicians. This week witnesses the release of DEKH TAMASHA DEKH, a socio-political satire, which revolves around the hunt for the religious identity of a man. Inspired by a true incident, DEKH TAMASHA DEKH starts off when an underprivileged man gets crushed under the weight of a politician's [Satish Kaushik] mega hoarding. The film gets into the mood immediately after the death of this man: Be it the judge trying to get into the details of the man's death, be it the lawyers of the... Read more

To his own and his parent's surprise he got selected for rounds further up.

A Picture Becomes Music Joaquin Diaz

Meet Joaquin Diaz merengue accordionist extraordinaire By Stephen Pate – When I saw Tim Carter’s photograph of merengue accordionist Joaquin Diaz I felt as if could hear the music.  The photograph captures the color and passion of the musician.  A casual browse through Flickr turned into a musical adventure. I immediately wanted to hear the Mr. Diaz’s music, which is easy today with YouTube and the internet. Googling his name, I could find videos and a home page dedicated to Joaquin Diaz.  “Experience the most exciting traditional merengue music you’ll ever hear!” Great, I thought. Tim’s photograph captured Diaz in the heat of his performance at the 2013 Lowell (MA) Folk Festival. While there is no video of that performance, I did find other videos. Listen and feel the joy of this amazing artist. “It was the last two... Read more

Music Review The Xpose

Music :: Filmi, Saturday, April 19th 2014

Expectations: The expectations from Himesh Reshammiya fans are humongous, to say the least. And his detractors are expecting him to crash while realizing in private that an inspired Himesh is capable of separating the men from the boys in today's scenario. The music assignment is quite challenging though - the flavour of the '60s and '70s is needed without the songs sounding dated. Music: A relentless yet smooth R.D. Burman-esque beat that underlies 'Ice cream' (with Himesh Reshammiya and Yo Yo Honey Singh) and the silken vocals of Palak Muchhal (who is getting better by the song), carry the track to above-average levels despite the heavy (and deliberate) derivation. Honey Singh's limited presence may not be liked by his fans, but Himesh delivers big time in a 'normal' octave. This is the 2014... Read more

Quantitative Easing The Risk Reward Balance

Now that Janet Yellen and her fellow American central bankers have signalled that the Fed's long experiment with quantitative easing is soon to end, it is important to look back and see what impact unconventional monetary policy and the bloating of the Federal Reserve's balance sheet had on longer term interest rates once the Fed had pushed the Fed Funds rate to zero, since it is through the manipulation of interest rates that the Federal Reserve hopes to impact the...
