Balloon seller stabbed to death in CP

first_imgA balloon seller was stabbed to death in Connaught Place on Wednesday night in what police claimed was a result of rivalry between drug addicts. The victim’s family though refused to buy the claim.The deceased Tatia (22) was the cousin of Rahul, who shot to the limelight after helping the police locate the bomb that was dumped in a dustbin near Regal cinema during the 2008 serial blasts that ripped the Capital.At the time of the incident the deceased was sleeping on the footpath near Hanuman Mandir in Connaught Place. His 20-year-old wife Laachi, their newborn baby and another teenage relative were sleeping nearby.Police said that on Wednesday night five people came looking for Rahul’s elder brother. A scuffle ensued in which Tatia got stabbed. He died on the way to the hospital. His wife too sustained injuries.The five were high on drugs and were arrested from the spot by the patrolling police officials.The police claimed it was a drug deal which had gone wrong that had resulted in the murder.”This case has got nothing to do with Rahul. The deceased was a small time drug peddler and had supplied smack to some person. The five people had come looking for him as the drug which he had sold to them was actually white chalk powder. When they confronted Tatia, a heated debate ensued which turned violent and he was stabbed. We managed to arrest all the accused from the spot,” K. C. Dwivedi, additional commissioner of police (New Delhi), said.advertisementThe accused have been identified as Rohit alias Nanhe, Vijay alias Viju, Dhanjeet, Vinod and Bobby. All of them are drug addicts and live in the locality.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Learn How to Wear a Seersucker Suit for National Seersucker Day

first_imgIt’s All About the FitLaurie Haspel gives us the rundown on form and fit: “A seersucker suit must fit right. Even more than most suits. Those famous stripes are like runway lights for a bad fit. If your jacket is too bulky or your pants are too long, people will surely notice. First, invest in a suit that suits your body type. At Haspel, our suits are trim but not skinny so it fits lots of different guys well. We’re proud of that. Each brand’s suit has its own personality. Ours has a shorter jacket and higher armhole and is a bit tapered through the chest. Basically, that means it’s got shape. Then, invest in a tailor. Actually, make friends with a tailor, someone who knows how to perfect clothes on your body. They will make an already good suit look great.”What to Wear with Seersucker?“I love tradition, but I’m equally as fond of a twist. I see guys rockin’ a seersucker suit with a crisp white or pink shirt, bucks, a boater and bow tie. That is the full look. It’s participating in a legacy that I love and my family helped create. If you dress your seersucker in that way I promise you will always be as cool as the underside of the pillow.” Sweating is not a pre-requisite for wearing dress casual or formal attire in the warmer months. It’s plenty possible to have your style game on point while maintaining a comfortable homeostasis. Just ask Southerners, the folks who realized long ago that seersucker — the puckered cotton fabric so underutilized by everyone else — is a great style for suits. Seersucker: You can almost feel a cool breeze on your skin just by thinking the word. And you’ll need to feel cool June 7th, which happens to be National Seersucker Day.Though originally from India, the fabric was first made into suits by New Orleans-based Haspel, which has been going strong since 1909. The pioneers have updated their line this year, with some new options to keep you looking cool and feeling, well, cool. To learn more, we asked Laurie Haspel, president and fourth-generation owner of Haspel, to provide some tips on how to wear the South’s favorite fabric. But first, an update on Haspel’s latest duds.The New LooksAmong other things, Haspel now has a bolder, wide-striped pattern that comes on blazers and, because men should be able to bear our legs, too, shorts. Alongside those offerings, they’ve added a couple 100-percent cotton short-sleeved shirts that are sure to pop. The ocean stripe saenger seersucker sports a breezy look, while the saenger raspberry seersucker plaid shirt updates a classic plaid look. How to Choose the Right Dress Shirt Celebrating 110 Years of Seersucker: Happy Birthday to the Perfect Summer Suit “But a seersucker suit is really a great canvas. You can wear it with lots of things. It looks relaxed and sharp with a great navy blue polo and loafers. I also love it with a perfect white T-shirt and trainers or even Chuck Taylors if you are young enough or young at heart. An open shirt and white pocket square is fresh too. I like having no break on the pants so you show a little ankle. Beyond bucks, a chukka boot or Chelsea boot can work, too. Just look for a lighter color in suede or leather.”Beyond the Suit“Think separates! Seersucker doesn’t need to be worn as a suit. Break up the jacket and pants for more versatility. I love a seersucker coat with white pants or jeans; a beat-up denim jacket, crisp white shirt, and seersucker pants also looks killer. You don’t need to wear seersucker head to toe. Repeat, you don’t need to wear seersucker head to toe.“We all know the seersucker suit. It’s classic and everyone should own one (at least one!). But seersucker, like cotton or wool, is really just a fabric that can be used in lots of different types of clothing. It’s great for lots of things because it is lightweight, breathable and has that iconic pucker. We make seersucker into great button-down shirts — we even use it on details on our tees.”Article originally published by Chase Scheinbaum on May 06, 2017.

Live Out Your Yacht Fantasies By the Day with Boatsetter

first_img Editors’ Recommendations This Black Boathouse Is a Luxurious Retreat on a Small Island in Norway Escape to the Pacific Northwest at Hoh Rainforest Caravan Cabins 9 Best Spirits For Spiked Apple Cider Classic sports cars, oceanfront villas, outdoor gear, even pools — these days, everything is available for rent by the week, the day, or even the hour. So, it comes as no surprise that one company just dove (get it?) into the sharing economy with boat rentals. Whether you’re looking for an ordinary party boat to tool around the nearest pond or a full-fledged luxury yacht complete with captain, crew, and deep sea fishing gear, Boatsetter has you covered.Boating is right up there with high-stakes casino gambling and bungee jumping. It’s exhilarating and amazing, but owning a boat is notoriously frustrating. When you add up insurance, maintenance, seasonal care (including pulling the vessel from the water and wrapping it during the off-season), docking, and fuel, it can be a very, very expensive hobby indeed. There’s a reason most owners describe their boat as “a hole in the water, into which I throw money.” For anyone looking to enjoy boating in the simplest way possible, on-demand boat rental is the way to go.Shaah ShahidhAs of late 2018, Boatsetter offers nearly 25,000 rental opportunities in more than 2,100 cities. Rentals are available in almost every major U.S. city from San Francisco to Chicago to Boston to Miami. Shopping for a rental is as easy as shopping for Airbnb accommodations. Potential renters can search by location, date, and the type of boat (power or sail). They can then narrow their search with additional options like the size of their party, whether or not they need a captain, and the type of water activity they’re interested in (fishing, diving, cruising, or straight-up celebrating).Just like with recreational vehicles, most boats sit idle for the vast majority of the year. For boat owners, renting out their pleasure craft is a virtually guaranteed extra source of income. According to Boatsetter’s calculator, even the smallest powerboat (less than 20 feet) commands an average of $168 per rental. Luxury yachts larger than 60 feet can score more than $2,000 per rental. Owners control their rates and rental schedule. Plus, Boatsetter handles all the logistics, customer service, and even hull and liability insurance in case some joker decides to play dockside demolition derby with your Bayliner.Boat renters and owners can both register for Boatsetter for free. For anyone new to boating and unsure of what’s involved, the site’s comprehensive listing of boating laws and boaster safety courses by state is a great place to start.

Two children dead many homes damaged as storms pummel USA

first_imgDallas: Powerful storms that rolled across the South on Saturday spawned at least two suspected tornadoes, damaged homes and killed two children in Texas, authorities said. The Angelina County Sheriff’s Office said an 8-year-old and a 3-year-old died when strong winds toppled a tree onto the back of their family’s car in Lufkin while it was in motion. Capt. Alton Lenderman said the parents, who were in the front seats, were not injured. Lufkin is about 115 miles (185 kilometers) northeast of Houston. Additional information was not immediately available.

Trees were down and at least some minor structural damage was reported in residential areas east of the campus.

Congress indulging in petty politics Smriti Irani

first_imgBallia (UP): Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani Friday accused the Congress of indulging in petty politics and appealed to the electorate to shun the ‘milawati’ (adulterated) SP-BSP-RLD alliance in Uttar Pradesh. Addressing an election meeting here, the BJP leader also took a swipe at Robert Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, saying he would soon land in jail. “Those indulging in petty politics, Rahul Gandhi and Robert Vadra, are upset over the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Robert Vadra has reached the courts and in time to come he will also reach the jail,” Irani said. The BJP leader who was here to campaign for party candidate from Salempur seat , Ravindra Kushwaha, asked the electorate to shun the politics of ‘milawat’, referring to the grand alliance in Uttar Pradesh- the term often used by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “Those who were opposed to each other are today together and are enacting a political drama… the lady leader has forgotten her humiliation,” she said. “They have never been together on the issue of bringing the Opposition together nor on the issue of development but through ‘milawat’ in politics they are imagining of gaining some publicity on May 23,” she added. Irani, who is contesting from Amethi Lok Sabha seat presently held by Rahul Gandhi, also attacked him saying, “Those paying a visit to the people once in five years will be off to Italy.” The Union minister, who had unsuccessfully contested the 2014 Lok Sabha poll from Amethi, also criticised Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi for allegedly “making children abuse the prime minister”. Irani was referring to a video of Priyanka Gandhi in which she is seen standing alongwith children who were raising slogans against Modi. Polling for the Salempur seat is slated for May 19 in the seventh and last phase of the ongoing general elections.last_img read more

Brothers in Arms An Analysis of USMorocco Relations

By Francesca RactliffeRabat- The United States and Morocco share a robust political alliance that is mutually beneficial to the powers of both countries. US-Morocco diplomatic relations formally began in 1787 when the United States Senate ratified the Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the two nations.Ever since, Morocco has been a valuable partner of the US, as the Kingdom of Morocco is the most reliable power in the North African region. Morocco provides a strategic military and economic foothold for the US in the region. In exchange for geographical and intelligence access, Morocco wins diplomatic influence and preferential treatment from the United States. The attacks of 9/11 woke the United States up from its content position as the leading country in the world with the leading ideology. Liberalism was thought to be the championing ideology.The 9/11 Commission Report concluded that the threat to the United States is not in retaliation for its military involvement abroad, but rather it is due to conflicting ideology. The US was not facing a war on terror, but a war of beliefs. The Commission’s report posits that America must fight on two fronts. First, the US must use military, financial, and diplomatic means to fight external threats. But the bigger fight is with a hostile belief system that cannot be reasoned with but can only be ”destroyed or utterly isolated.’’Since 9/11 the United States has shifted its focus to managing the perceived threats of extremist ideology. The Kingdom of Morocco has been a central focus of the US’s updated foreign policy.Forging strong ties with the Kingdom of Morocco and connecting the two countries through economic deals, such as NAFTA, assures military and intelligence cooperation between the two nations. Indeed, the US provides assistance to the Moroccan government to enhance the capacity of the kingdom to prevent acts of terrorism and threats to stability.In August of 2014 the U.S.-Morocco Framework for Cooperation on Training for Civilian Security Service was signed. The US works with and funds diverse Moroccan law enforcement and investigative agencies to minimize perceived threats emanating from south of the kingdom as well as from countries which the US finds untrustworthy, such as Libya.The US’s active involvement with Morocco in fighting extremism is only motivated by the US wanting to ensure its own national security. Therefore in recent years, under King Mohammed VI, the kingdom has increased its focus on counter-terrorism.In June the Moroccan government announced their decision not to repatriate the Moroccan widows of ISIS fighters. Also in June, a counter-terrorism summit focused on tackling the threat of  ‘homegrown terrorism” was hosted in Rabat with members of the US government in attendance. Morocco is the recipient of generous grants from USAID that helps the kingdom fund education, which is part of the US’s strategy for combating hostile extremist ideology. Morocco also benefits from US government loans that guarantee “programs for the purchase of military material.” In 2013 Morocco received $2.7 billion worth of military equipment, making the US its primary provider, over French weapon companies. The Morocco-US relationship benefits both countries. The US has a key ally in the tumultuous regions of North Africa, and Morocco receives funds and connections to advance the prosperity of the kingdom.However, neither Morocco nor the wider the world, should be naive that US funding, which is expected to be $15.9 million by 2019, is given not just in the interest of maintaining peace and security, democracy, human rights, economic development, education, and social services, but is an active strategy for advancing the American agenda of a liberal ideology that assures the authority and safety of the United States. read more

L’autorité américaine de régulation du commerce tente de répondre à cette question en sondant les concurrents du géant du Net.La régie publicitaire AdMob sous les couleurs de Google annoncerait-elle des perturbations sur le marché du mobile ? L’autorité américaine de régulation de la publicité (FTC), n’a pas d’avis tranché sur la question. C’est pourquoi elle a pris l’initiative de demander aux concurrents du géant américain et aux annonceurs leur opinion. “Nous n’allons pas discuter des détails de la procédure”, a indiqué Adam Kovacevich, porte-parole de Google. “Nous sommes confiants dans le fait qu’ils en arriveront à la conclusion que le marché de la publicité mobile restera compétitif après avoir finalisé cette transaction”. La firme du web a fait une proposition de 750 millions de dollars pour le rachat d’AdMob. Pour le moment, les avis divergent.

NASA Mars Curiosity rover saw a weird light but dont freak out

NASA/JPL-Caltech/red circle by Amanda Kooser/CNET We’re all excited about NASA’s Curiosity rover at the moment thanks to its intriguing discovery of a mysterious methane spike. Some of that fervor seems to be spilling over to an image the rover snapped on June 16 showing a bright blip of light on the distant horizon.The rover snapped a series of images, and the bright blip only appears in one. But don’t get your hopes up for signs of alien life on the Red Planet. We’ve seen this sort of light before.There are several good explanations for the glowing spot. “It’s most likely a sun glint or scattered light,” NASA media relations specialist Andrew Good said. “We’ve seen this many times throughout the mission.”  Curiosity captured a view of a very similar glow on the horizon in 2014. NASA’s Doug Ellison, who works with the rover camera, took to his personal Twitter account at the time to say that light was likely a cosmic ray hit.  Read DJI Osmo Action preview 17 Photos Chris Monroe/CNET JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130.

first_imgThe Chilkat robe is a Raven design and measures just over five feet wide. (Photo by George Blucker)Sealaska Heritage Institute has acquired a Chilkat robe that was to be auctioned off on eBay on Wednesday.

Wildfires pop up near Chisana and Tanana

first_imgA photo of the Red Hill Fire taken Saturday evening. The fire, estimated at 1 acre, is approximately 100 miles northeast of Glennallen and 1.8 miles northeast of Chisana. (Luke Wassick/National Park Service)Recent warm, dry weather in the interior has resulted in two late season wildfires. State Forestry reports sending fire fighters last night to a one-acre blaze, located about a hundred miles northeast of Glennallen, near Chisana.Listen nowThe department said the fire, burning in Wrangle St. Elias National Park and Preserve, was observed to be creeping and smoldering with light rain falling on it last night. Forestry said the fire is not accessible by road, and weather prevented firefighters from getting to it last night.The other new fire was reported last week by a boater along the Tanana River, on a Native land allotment about 15 miles downstream from Nenana. The Alaska Fire Service said two firefighters went to the site Friday to work the fire, which was estimated at less than an acre, with activity again described as smoldering and creeping.Both fires are suspected to be human-caused. State and federal agencies say Alaska has minimal staff on hand to fight fires in Alaska right now, as most are deployed to the battle major blazes in the western Lower 48.The AFS says nearly 653,000 acres have burned in Alaska so far this year, well below the normal average of one to two million acres.last_img read more

Alaskabased fighters intercept 6 Russian aircraft flying near Alaska

first_imgAlaska-based fighter jets intercepted half a dozen Russian military aircraft Monday. According to NORAD, there were two separate incidents in the international airspace near Alaska, neither of which violated U.S. air sovereignty. In total there were four Russian bombers, as well as two fighter jets involved. One group approached from the south, while at about the same time, the remaining aircraft came from the north. Both groups were intercepted by F-22 Raptors that took off from Alaska. Captain Cameron Hillier says while such incidents have become routine in recent years, it’s rare for two to happen at the same time. “Typically we have about six or seven per year, and that goes back to about 2007 when they re-started long-range aviation patrols,” Hillier said.

Netflix May Come In Pill Form One Day

first_imgStay on target Remember the scene in The Matrix where Neo has to choose between the red pill and the blue pill? One day that may be how you opt to binge on either Kimmy Schmidt or The Walking Dead.At least that’s one future Netflix CEO Reid Hastings sees for the entertainment business. Could you really just pop a pill and be instantly caught up on your favorite shows? Not any time soon, obviously, but maybe “in 20 to 50 years,” Hastings mused.He even went so far as to suggest that you might be able to make a customized playlist. You’ll take “a personalized blue pill,” and “just hallucinate in an entertaining way,” Hastings said. When you’re all caught up, popping “a white pill brings you back to normality.”He wasn’t being totally serious when he made the comment to a Wall Street Journal reporter on stage yesterday, mind you. Instead, he was trying to make a point about how a company like Netflix has to be ready for what’s next. Blockbuster wasn’t prepared when Netflix burst onto the scene and look what happened to them.19 years after its founding, Netflix has 47 million subscribers in the U.S. alone and you’re hard pressed to find a single video rental store that’ still in business. Hastings doesn’t want that to happen to Netflix, so rest assured… if there’s some far-out, sci-fi way to get their library of original content into your brain then he’s going to do everything he can to make sure Netflix is the company that brings it to you.All you’ll have to decide is whether to take the blue pill, wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe… or take the red pill  and stay in Wonderland and let Netflix show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

Exploring benefits of black water

first_imgWe are about to enter the month of September, but the mercury is still soaring high. In this weather, the best way to survive the scorching heat is to keep yourself hydrated. Speaking for myself, in stead of gulping sodas and other sweet beverages, I have always been reaching for bottled water. However, the ever-expanding market, offering a variety in the packaged water often confuses me. Aren’t all the same – crystal clear, odourless, sparkling fluids that quenches your thirst better than any other drinks? Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Obviously yes!” – This is what everybody of you might be thinking right now except the ones who have tasted or at least heard of ‘Black Water’.Introduced by ‘BLK’, it is a premium alkaline water infused with pH of 8+ at the source.But how is it better than my tap water?”This water detoxifies your body by removing all toxins 20times better than the normal water. It’s ultra-hydrating since it gets absorbed at a higher rate than the regular water due to its addition of electrolytes and minerals. Also, it is rich in dissolved oxygen, which is considered to be the fuel for metabolism,” says Tapasya Mundhra, Nutritionist. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIrrespective of the uncountable health benefits, I had inhibitions about trying this product initially. It’s black water – won’t it taste and smell like sludge or rotten eggs? But on the contrary, it tasted very much like good, old-fashioned water. (With various additional benefits).Revealing other benefits of alkaline water, experts say that when the body environment becomes acidic, the body is forced into drawing balancing elements from the body itself. By balancing the acidity of the body, alkaline water helps restore bone health, fatigue and aid in osteoporosis. Also, it is a great cure for the hangover as it ensures the restoration of natural body balance quickly after consuming alcohol. Talking about the idea behind bringing this product in the Indian market, Dikshit Jhanb, Director of IRIIS says, “In the last decade or so a number of international beverage brands have entered the Indian market making this sector segmented. I saw a great potential in the non- alcoholic beverage segment, especially in the packaged drinking water sector. The main reason for me to invest and bring international beverage brands to the Indian market was that there is an increased awareness in the country in general about health, wellness and at large about getting fit and leading healthier lifestyles.”He also informs about the positive response this product is receiving which is especially coming from the segment that understands the benefits of drinking alkaline water.Considering the phenomenal feedback from the fitness and wellness industry, Tapasya Mundhara recommends this black water but at the same time feels that alkaline water is not a necessity for the human body. “I think it is not a necessity for humans — if you are taking a proper healthy diet, eating sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables, managing sleep and stress well, you don’t really need any additional supplements,” she informs.last_img read more
