Pakistan accuses India for terror strike in their soils May 29, 2015 11:28

In a laughable statement the haven of terrorism, Pakistan has raised allegations against India being behind the terror activities in that country. Pakistan is known as a rogue state, in which the Army and the intelligence wing ISI trains and hosts terrorists and use them for covert operations. Pakistan also plays the victim of terrorism card and extorts financial assistance from US and use the same funds to train and host terror groups. Pakistan is very much particular that the terrorism industry, they are running should not end, so that they can receive funds indefinitely. Terrorism is a cottage industry of the Pakistan Army and ISI, used to hide the incapabilities of them. The killing of Osama Bin Laden in the soil of Pakistan is the best proof to relate the rogue country with terrorism.“The statement of the Indian defense minister should be a matter of concern not to just Pakistan, but also others in the region and beyond,” said FO spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah. “Their statements confirm the Pakistan’s apprehensions about India’s involvement in terrorism in Pakistan,” the FO spokesperson maintained.“The Senate’s Defense Committee has condemned the statement of the Indian defense minister and expressed concern. Pakistan is a victim of terrorism and has suffered more than any other country in the world. We have lost more than sixty thousand lives of our citizens and suffered economic losses of more than $100 billion. Pakistan condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations. The statement of the Indian defense minister should be a matter of concern to not just Pakistan but also others in the region and beyond,” the spokesman added.For a question by a journalist regarding the footprints of ISIS in the Pakistan soil, he emphasized, “There is no footprint of ISIL in Pakistan. The people of Pakistan have no ideological, ethnic or linguistic affinities with the organisation and its members”. “However, we have seen some pamphlets and wall-chalking. That is not a proof of the presence of ISIL in Pakistan. Nevertheless, we are cognisant of the threat ISIL poses,” he said, “Our security agencies are aware of this threat and will take appropriate measures, if needed.”When asked about Axact’s fake degree scam in Pakistan. He said, “The investigation of the Axact related issues is still going on. As you are aware, a number of US entities and educational institutions have allegedly been named in the Axact scandal”.By Premji

Shock to Naidu In Mahanadu! May 29, 2015 10:19

Not from the party oppositions, but from the party member, that too from an MP, Naidu had to face a shock in Mahanadu. Not only state, concentrate on party- JCSpeaking at the meeting, JC Diwakar Reddy, Ananthapur MP, said that, “Naidu is always concerned about the development of the state, he kept his complete concentration on that issue and thus neglecting the issues that are taking place within the party. It would be better, if he changes his attitude, otherwise the consequences would be severe and may lead to serious conflicts, instead of realizing then, the immediate response would be advantageous for the growth of the party.”In fact, it is not new for JC to utter these type of controversial comments on the party head, he many times did it publicly. Though the comments of his are in controversial style, the internal meaning shows his anxiety for the growth of the party, the same estimation was made by the party members and Naidu too and took it positively. Actual intention of JC behind his comments? But according to the political critics, JC tried to showcase his anger on Naidu by applying positive masala to it. According to the critics, JC asked Naidu to change his attitude towards the party. As a senior politician, he might have told it to alert CM before hand from facing conflicts among the party members. But is it necessary to say in a public meeting?, is the intention behind this is to make himself popular among the public or take Naidu down among them? All these questions can be answered only by him.By Phani

Kavitha open challenge to Naidu May 29, 2015 10:01

It is known that in Mahanadu, Naidu and other TDP ministers criticized KCR in various aspects. Though  KCR is silent on these issues, his daughter and MP Kavitha gave a counter to Naidu. Speaking to the media, Kavitha said that, “how can Naidu talk about the development of Hyderabad. People are very well aware of who sold the lands here and who is the reason for the development of the city in the one year. It is an open challenge to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu to have a public discussion about this issue. If he has really dared enough, he would participate in the discussion.”  “Naidu is well known to kill the people who struggled for Telangana and offering the garlands on their dead bodies. That same person now talking about the people who struggled for Telangana is a big comedy.” Kavitha missed this logic !On the other side, few of the political critics opined that when Kavitha is taking out the issue of the people who fought for Telangana and sacrificed their lives, why did not she question herself that, what is that TRS did for the families of such people?, if TRS party took a good care of the families, then there would be any question of facing the oppositions on this issue. So it is better if TRS government at least think about those families now and act accordingly.     By Phani

With this, he publicly stated that KCR will continue to be the head of the party and also as the Chief Minister of the state.KCR  is still young- KTR“KCR is the strength of the party, there is no one who can compete with him within the party. It is the trend where even the very old people are still contesting in the elections, in that case, the 61 years old KCR is still very young. We wish him to continue as the Chief Minister of the state for another twenty to thirty years. He is the pillar of TRS and along with me, there are many others in the party who are living under his shade”, he opined. But, what would be his answer if he is questioned that, who will be the successor of the party and CM position?, then the answer would have been be more interesting and may pave the way for more gossips among the political intellectuals.   By Phani

Focus on what to eat, than what not May 28, 2015 19:17

A study by new Cornell discovery, the researchers suggests focusing on what to eat than what not to eat. To prove this, the researchers analyzed 43 published international studies that involved either negative or positive nutrition messages. They found that while negative messages tended to work best with experts like dietitians and physicians who were highly involved and knowledgeable in the area, most people who did not know a lot about nutrition would rather be told what they should eat and why it is good for them.The lead author Brian Wansink suggested that telling your child to eat an apple so they stay healthy will work better than telling them not to eat the cookie because it will make them fat. In short, stressing the benefits of eating healthy foods is more effective than warning against the harms of eating unhealthy foods.By Lizitha

Britain will vote to leave EU, Good or Bad May 28, 2015 18:34

Britain will vote to leave the European Union without major reforms to its membership, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. The Foreign Secretary said to the EU leaders to stop “obsessing” about the principle of “every closer union”. “The Prime Minister’s made clear that some of the demands that we are making will require treaty change to make them irreversible and substantive and make them proof against challenge in the European courts. Many other parts of the agenda will not require treaty change, but some of them will,” he said.Mr Hammond said in another occasion, “We expect our European Union partners to engage with us in delivering a package that will enable the British people to decide that they think Britain’s future is best delivered inside the European Union.” “Stop obsessing about institutional structures and ideas like ever closer union which, frankly, look like yesterday’s agenda in an increasingly competitive global economy where Europe has to fight to protect the standards of living of our people,” he said.There are plenty of scare stories out there about what might happen to the U.K. economy if the country votes to leave the European Union in the upcoming referendum, collapse in the trade, millions out of work, Sterling tumbling and the government running to IMF to ask for an emergency bailout.The re-elected David Cameron government has promised to hold an in-out referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union (EU), a five-year freeze on income-tax, VAT and national insurance payments and the right-to-buy for tenants of housing associations. The people of United Kingdom will be asked to vote "yes" if they want to stay in the European Union when a referendum is held in the next two years, the government said. The question which will be asked on the ballot paper will be, "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union?""That Cameron is opting to give the pro-EU side the positive 'Yes' suggests strongly that his negotiations are so much fudge," Nigel Farage, the leader of the anti-EU UK Independence Part. "He has already decided which way he wants the answer to be given, without a single power repatriated."By Premji

India tops world hunger list May 28, 2015 18:27

“India is a developing country”. A consistent statement since decades.  One in every four persons of the world is undernourished. The figure has come down from 795 million to 216 million between 1990-92 and 2015. But, there is no heavy contribution from India towards this fall. It is just down by 15.5 million, to say in figures.  In the beginning, it was China, which is over India. But in the recent estimates, it was found that, China has cut down its figure to 133.8 million from 289 million in 1990-92. It was South- east Asian region that contributed most to the decline.   “India missed both the millennium development goal as well as the goal laid out at the World Food Summit (WFS) in 1996, when governments committed to halving the absolute number of undernourished people by 2015. Of the 172 countries that were being monitored, 29 including Nepal met the WFS goal,” revealed by the State of Food Security in the World 2015, released by the UN's Food and Agricultural Organization in Rome on Wednesday. The highest burden of hunger was found in Southern Asia, though India and China contributed to the overall hunger reduction in the developing regions. According to the recent estimates for the years 2014-16, it was suggested that about 281 million people were undernourished in the region, marking only a slight reduction of 10 million from the number in 1990-92 of 291 million.Bangladesh and Nepal are the notable exceptions in the region. Among the both, Bangladesh has reached the MDG target with the National Food Policy framework. On the other hand, Nepal achieved both MDG as well as WFS target and is now targeting to bring it down to  less than 5% of the population. The undernourished constitute just over 15% of the Indian population.   According to the report, the progress of the country is still a puzzle. Reasons for this is the inconsistency between food consumption and income levels in India ranged from increasing inequalities, to poor data, to the challenges of capturing the changing energy requirements of the population. The calorie consumption being lower than what per capita incomes and poverty rates would suggest remained inexplicable.   By Phani

New Virus Message that can Crash your iPhone May 28, 2015 18:07

Time has come for those who boast that IPhone is the most reliable and fastest mobile in the world to recheck the fact as a new text message, which is reportedly proven malicious can crash the device. A bug, probably the first of its kind has been discovered in Apple’s IOS, which is in text format, is causing the device to reboot, when received from others. The text is a mixture of English and Arabic words. 9to5Mac reported that they discovered the iPhones not only crashing, but also rebooting when they receive the particular text message. However, they stated that the message is effective, only if it is sent by Apple handsets running iOS. Apple is still searching for the hacker who made the message first.Reacting on this, Apple told Mail online that it is looking into the issue and will probably fix the issue in the next update. The enraged iPhone users took the twitter with thousands of messages to share the text, as well as bemoan being sent it by tiresome friends.Below is the flurry of the tweets: However, there are some relatively easy ways to fix handsets.Victims of the bug can ask the same person, via another form of communication, who sent them the malicious message to send it again - effectively cancelling out the bug.This works well if it's a friend messing around. - Manohar
