Im not scared of failure Varun Dhawan

first_imgNew Delhi: Varun Dhawan is expanding his horizon with each of his projects — be it “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”, “October” and the recent release “Kalank”, which has become the highest opener of 2019 so far. The actor says he treats each project as a challenge, and pushes himself to improve his craft. “I am not scared of failure, but each movie is a challenge. I work harder with each project and try and improve my work constantly,” Varun told IANS over an email.

I think that showing your experience is more important and reaching the audience is essential,” added the actor, who is associated with Skybags and features in the “Always a Star” campaign. But he prefers not to think much about failure. “Failure and success come with every occupation and the film industry is no different. I believe that what goes around comes around. Bad things happen, followed by better things.” Also Read – Salman Khan remembers actor Vinod Khanna The younger of the two sons of director David Dhawan, Varun entered Bollywood as an actor with “Student of the Year” in 2012. He worked as an assistant director to Karan Johar on the 2010 drama “My Name Is Khan”. After walking into Bollywood as a student, Varun has graduated after showcasing his calibre with each of his projects. From playing the role of a small town boy from Jhansi in “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”, to getting the act right in dance film “ABCD 2” to the dark and gritty “Badlapur” to the subtle “October” to fun films like “Dilwale”, “Dishoom”, “Main Tera Hero” and “Judwaa 2” — he has aced his performance in each of the projects. Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson has been an inspiration in his life as he navigated the world of glitz and glamour. “Dwayne Johnson was my main inspiration before I stepped into the industry. I have always admired his work and creativity,” he said. Varun is back on the big screen — this time in an intense avatar as Zafar in “Kalank”. The Abhishek Varman directorial, a period drama, registered business of Rs 21.60 crore on the first day, surpassing the opening day collection of “Kesari”, “Gully Boy” and “Total Dhamaal”, and has become the highest opener of 2019 so far. According to trade expert Taran Adarsh, “Kalank”, which opened on Wednesday, is Varun’s biggest opener. Talking about the role, he said: “I would define the entire experience as the most challenging role I have done so far. It was really challenging as I had to do all the stunts by myself like going through a wringer, me banging myself against the wall and jumping off heights.”last_img read more

Haiti UN peacekeepers support police in efforts to curb crime

31 October 2011United Nations peacekeepers in Haiti and local police officers have carried out a four-day joint operation to target criminals operating in two neighbourhoods of Port-au Prince, the country’s capital. Operation Hope, which ended last Friday, targeted known criminals in the Bel Air and Martissant neighbourhoods with the aim of disrupting their activities. According to a news release issued today by the mission (MINUSTAH), the operation involved the deployment of more than 2,100 troops – mainly Brazilian and Sri Lankan – and 600 police officers. In addition, ground and aerial equipment and assets were mobilized for the operation.MINUSTAH said the operation was meant to act as a deterrent for future criminal activities in those neighbourhoods. During the operation, Haitian authorities apprehended seven wanted criminal suspects, including several prison escapees.Security has remained a concern in Haiti since last year’s earthquake, which enabled the escape of about 6,000 prisoners. Since then, criminals have used the ensuing chaos to rebuild and increase their activities. MINUSTAH said it “remains firmly committed to bringing stability and security to the people of Haiti, in support of the national authorities.”Currently, there are some 8,900 military troops, 1,351 police officers and 2,940 members of formed police units (FPUs) in MINUSTAH. read more

Closing Bell TSX closes lower as US government shutdown looms

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed lower Monday as hopes faded that an 11th-hour deal would emerge on a compromise budget bill that would prevent a partial shutdown of the U.S. government at midnight.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 12,787.19 -56.89 -0.44%S&P 500 — 1,681.55 -10.20 -0.60Dow — 15,129.67 -128.57 -0.84%Nasdaq — -3771.48 -10.11 -0.27%The S&P/TSX composite index closed down 56.89 points to 12,787.19 as worry about the economic effect of such a shutdown depressed most sectors.A notable exception was the real estate sector, which ran ahead 1.9% as Brookfield Property Partners LP (TSX:BPY.UN) announced it wants to buy out other shareholders of Brookfield Office Properties Inc. (TSX:BPO) in a stock-and-cash deal it valued at US$5 billion.Brookfield Property Partners already owns a 51% stake in Brookfield Office Properties. Brookfield Office Properties shares ran ahead $2.45, or 14.17%, to $19.74 while Brookfield Property Partners units were a penny lower at $19.99.The Canadian dollar closed flat at 97.06 cents US as Canada’s economic growth in July came in better than expected.Statistics Canada reported that the economy grew by 0.6% in July, rebounding from a 0.5% decline in June. The bounce — one of the biggest since the recession — was one-tenth of a point better than estimates.New York also closed in the red but off the worst levels of the session as a midnight deadline loomed that would result in cuts to non-essential government services.The Dow Jones industrials was down as much as 171 points Monday before finishing the day 128.57 points lower at 15,129.67. The Nasdaq fell 10.11 points to 3,771.48 and the S&P 500 index lost 10.2 points to 1,681.55.Some analysts suggested that losses were limited by the conviction that the two sides will have to compromise.“It’s much ado about nothing,” said John Stephenson, portfolio manager at First Asset Funds Inc.“Ultimately, (President Barack) Obama is not going to defund Obamacare, the Republicans will reduce the tax on medical devices and a few other things so they can claim a victory. And then eventually it will be resolved.”An even more worrisome deadline comes up Oct. 17. That is when the U.S. government hits its debt limit and will begin running out of cash to pay its bills.“The concern is government has become so polarized that if they cannot pass (a budget), there’s a greater chance that the debt ceiling battle will go to the brink or possibly lead to a default,” said Alec Young, global equity strategist with S&P Capital IQ in New York.The base metals sector led declines, down 1.22% while December copper dipped a cent at US$3.32 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) gave back 42 cents to C$27.68.The information technology sector was also a drag as BlackBerry continued to lose value, down 18 cents to $8.10.Telecoms were also a major weight with Telus Corp.

But it surprised analysts by coming in much lower than the 51.2 in a preliminary version earlier this month.The gold sector was slightly higher as December bullion declined $12.20 to US$1,327 an ounce.In other corporate developments, engineering firm SNC-Lavalin (TSX:SNC) has put up a “For Sale” sign on its stake in AltaLink, which owns more than half of Alberta’s electricity transmission grid. The plan is part of a broader strategy of reducing its investments in infrastructure assets and SNC’s shares gained $1 to $42.35.Traders were also focused on Italy where Prime Minister Enrico Letta faces a confidence vote on Wednesday after ministers from former premier Silvio Berlusconi’s centre-right bloc pulled out of the five-month-old government.

Interfor closes BC sawmill in latest blow for trouble lumber industry

VANCOUVER — Interfor Corp. plans to permanently close its Hammond sawmill in Maple Ridge, B.C., affecting more than 100 workers.The Vancouver-based company says the closure is part of a reorganization of its forestry and woodlands operations amid tight supplies of logs for processing.It says the shutdown will be complete by the end of 2019, after the mill’s remaining log and lumber inventories have been processed and shipped.Interfor chief executive Duncan Davies says the company, which has 18 mills across North America, will seek jobs for the affected workers at its other operations or at outside mills.Interfor is still awaiting a provincial decision on its $60-million offer to acquire Canfor Corp’s Interior cutting rights after that company closed its Vavenby sawmill in July. When the planned deal for the cutting rights was announced, Interfor said the additional supply would “solidify” its Adams Lake operation east of Kamloops, B.C.None of the timber was earmarked for Interfor’s coastal mills but a company statement issued Tuesday said the Hammond closure could create opportunities to increase supply for its other Metro Vancouver sawmill, located in Delta. “The Coastal B.C. forest industry has faced significant log supply challenges over the past two decades and manufacturing capacity needs to be brought into line with available log supply,” Davies said in the statement.Closure of its Maple Ridge sawmill would result in “repatriation of working capital tied up at Hammond,” while “monetization” is planned for the prime Fraser River-front property, the company said.The Hammond mill mainly processes Western red cedar and has a two-shift capacity, but Interfor said it has been operating with a single shift for several years due to log supply constraints and other issues.In August, United Steelworkers Local 2009 members at Hammond and at Interfor’s Acorn mill in Delta voted 97 per cent in favour of strike action.The permanent closure of the Hammond mill is the latest upheaval for the B.C. forest industry, which has seen nearly two dozen mill closures, short-term shutdowns and hundreds of layoffs through the Interior over the summer.A lack of supply and volatile markets were blamed in those cases, while Davies said cedar producers such as the Hammond mill have been “disproportionately impacted by duties on shipments into the United States as a result of the softwood lumber dispute.” Companies in this story: (TSX: IFP) (TSX: CFP)The Canadian Press read more

Search for missing walker suspended for second night

first_imgTHE SEARCH FOR a man who went missing while walking on Mweelrea Mountain has been called off for the night.Around 30 people took part in the search today, with another 10 expected to take part in the search tomorrow.Although a helicopter took part in the search today, it could not be used for the part of the day due to bad weather conditions.A participant in the search, from Mayo Mountain Rescue, told that the search was called off once it got dark, but that they are hoping the weather will pick up tomorrow so that the helicopter can be used.“We covered the places we wanted to look at first,” said the participant, adding that the mountain area is very large, but they have been searching the spots where accidents are likely to happen.The missing man is 38 years old and went out walking in the area two days ago. He is believed to have a mobile phone with him but has not been contactable on it so far, due to the poor reception in the area.Read: Search resumes for missing walker in Mayo>last_img read more

Elderly people cant leave hospital due to council taking up to 18

The council says it is because it has difficulty getting contractors to do the work. They are absolutely unacceptable waiting times for people who really need things such as ramps, grab rails and showers in particular,” said Boyd Barrett.Grab rails The average time for grab rails and stair lifts to be fitted in homes is one month. Other miscellaneous fit-outs are taking up to 12 months, on average. Report from Dun Laoghaire Area Committee on council house adaptations. This doesn’t appear to be a new problem.In 2015, Age Action said delays in home care packages and home modifications were holding up hospital discharges.At the time, Age Action spokesperson Eamon Timmins said HSE figures showed that 17% of people in delayed discharge beds at the time were due to be discharged home, but were awaiting approval of a range of supports such as home care packages  and home adaptations.For the first nine months of last year, HSE figures show there were 142,472 delayed discharges across all public hospitals in the State.Delay in hiring contractors The difficulty in tendering and hiring for contractors to do the works is one of the main issues causing the problem, according to Solidarity-PBP TD Boyd Barrett.He said the obvious answer would be for people to be directly employed by the local authorities. In previous years, workers were directly employed in maintenance departments of local authorities to carry out the upkeep of council-owned properties.Boyd Barrett argues that the outsourcing of these contracts has resulted in tendering processes that can take up to six or eight months to identify a contractor.“We would have people employed by the local authorities directly to go out and install these things for people with disabilities and the elderly. Would the Taoiseach consider that? The unacceptable situation in Dun Laoghaire is almost certainly replicated right around the country. It is people with disabilities who are suffering the consequences,” he said.The Taoiseach said delays are due to “a labour and skills shortage across the construction sector”.He added: “That is causing difficulties.  It is driving up tender prices and making it harder for us to accelerate house building to the extent we would like, notwithstanding the fact that there were probably more houses built last year in Ireland than in any year of the past decade.” By Christina Finn 11,718 Views center_img Image: Shutterstock/Toa55 Elderly people can’t leave hospital due to council taking up to 18 months to fit walk-in showers and ramps The Housing Department has also confirmed that the waiting list for home ramps is up to 10 months.

Customize AI Sex Robot For 20Year

first_img The robot revolution is coming—and it will be much sexier than anticipated.Abyss Creations, maker of the life-size RealDoll sex toy, last week released the Harmony AI app, for all your on-the-go intimacy needs.Available as a $20 annual subscription directly from Abyss subsidiary Realbotix, the artificial intelligence platform lets users create a unique digital personality.Choose carefully from 18 character traits; make certain features—imaginative, sense of human, intellectual, affectionate, kind—more dominant to affect how your AI behaves, and what topics may come up in conversation.via RealbotixThink of it as a more sensual version of Siri, which learns and adapts over time to simulate a real relationship (or friendship, if that’s what you’re into).Realbotix, however, takes you deeper into the uncanny valley with the ability to design your own avatar. Create the 3D woman (a male version of the app is in the works) of your dreams by adjusting body shape and size, skin color, and other physical features—eyes, nails, hair, clothing.“By combining various textures and colors, the different looks you can achieve for your avatar are nearly limitless,” the Realbotix app description said.A voice editor also makes it possible to change the pitch and rate of speech.via Realbotix“Many of our clients rely on their imaginations to a great degree to impose imagined personalities on their dolls,” Abyss CEO Matt McMullen told Digital Trends. “With the Harmony AI, they will be able to actually create these personalities instead of having to imagine them.“They will be able to talk to their dolls, and the AI will learn about them over time through these interactions, thus creating an alternative form of relationship,” he continued. “The scope of conversations possible with the AI is quite diverse, and not limited to sexual subject matter.”A Harmony AI app subscription is available now for Android; there is no word on an iOS launch.Those customers really serious about silicone-based companionship, meanwhile, can pre-order the company’s $10,000 antimagnetic (an amalgamation of “animatronic” and “magnetic”) robotic head system—easily attached to an existing RealDoll body. A $2,000 deposit gets you a pre-order number; the life-like craniums are set to launch by the end of this year.A virtual reality platform is also in the works, intended to offer an “alternate way to interact” with the Harmony AI.

Souness Liverpool have not yet hit top form

first_imgLiverpool are yet to hit top form this season according to club legend and Sky Sports pundit Graeme SounessThe Reds left it late in the 96th-minute to seal all three points in the Merseyside derby, thanks to Divock Origi who capitalised on a Jordan Pickford error.However, Souness cast a more critical eye over his former side and says they are a contrast of the team last season.“It’s very hard to be critical of Liverpool’s form in the Premier League, but they’re not firing on all cylinders,” Souness said on Renault Super Sunday on Sky.Top 5 Premier League players to watch for next weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Premier League’s Top 5 players to watch this weekend.After…“I think a lot of the problems come from midfield. I think if you go back to the summer, he [Jurgen Klopp] signed two midfield players and wanted a third one – Nabil Fekir from Lyon – and I’m not sure if Fabinho and Naby Keita are an upgrade on what he’s already got.“Last year, the midfield of James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson were winning it early and getting forward early and the three strikers were off raiding and causing havoc. Now, it is a little bit more pedestrian, they’re winning it but there’s an extra touch or pass.“I think they’ve got to get back to that front three as quick as they possibly can and if they can do that, then they’ll be firing on all cylinders. But right now, for me, they’re not where they were last year.”last_img read more

Where roads deadlier than guns

first_imgRoad accident illustration by Prothom AloRoads in conflict-riddled Libya, where petrol is cheaper than mineral water, rank among the deadliest in the world.Disregard for traffic rules, a dilapidated infrastructure and cars that fail to meet safety standards combine to make road accidents in Libya more lethal than incidents involving weapons.In Tariq al-Siqqa, a public park in central Tripoli, hundreds of car wrecks are stacked up on top of each other as testimony of the carnage.Some vehicles still carry blood stains, others have shreds of clothing or a shoe left lying inside.The interior ministry’s traffic department recorded 4,115 road accidents across the country in 2018, killing 2,500 people and injuring more than 3,000 others.”Libya holds the (world) record for the number of deadly road accidents per capita,” said department spokesman Colonel Abdelnasser Ellafi.Last year’s road deaths outranked the hundreds of people killed annually in clashes between rival armed groups since Libya’s 2011 revolt that toppled dictator Moamer Kadhafi.Speeding is the number one cause of accidents in Libya — a country of just over six million people and more than 4.5 million vehicles, according to the department.With a litre of petrol, which is subsidised by the government, costing only 0.15 dinars (around 10 US cents), less than the price of a litre of mineral water, gas-guzzlers are all the rage.Some of Libya’s dilapidated roads, however, “have not been repaired in 60 years”, said traffic department head General Mohamad Hadiya, making them totally unsuitable.In Tripoli — home to two million inhabitants — the number of privately-owned cars has almost quadrupled in nearly a decade, jumping from 600,000 in 2010 to two million this year.Together with state-owned vehicles, taxis and public transport, the number rises to three million in the capital alone.- ‘No respect for traffic cops’ -Car salesmen have also flooded the market with imported cheap vehicles which are mostly used cars and lack basic safety measures such as seatbelts or airbags, officials say.In a bid to fight back, the authorities in February passed a law banning the import of cars older than 10 years.And for the first time in years, the government has set aside funds in its 2019 budget to repair the country’s roads.”The roads are systematically flooded after rain and bridges are unusable and need urgent maintenance work,” said Ellafi.His department has also launched campaigns to raise awareness among motorists about traffic laws and deploy patrols to catch traffic violators.But with the country thrown into anarchy and awash with weapons since 2011, the patrols keep a low profile to avoid reprisals from angry motorists.They mostly just direct traffic on the congested roads.”Young people have no respect for traffic cops because they know they won’t be punished,” said motorist Ahmad Rajab, as he stepped out of his 4X4 in Martyrs’ Square.”But we should not only blame drivers,” the 35-year-old said, pointing to the state of the roads as well as the lack of road signs and traffic lights.Rajab himself was injured in a road accident, which has left him with a limp.”I was driving at night along an unlit road east of Tripoli and I hit a pole that was lying across the road,” he said.”Road accidents have become silent killers that have claimed many lives in Libya.”last_img read more

Other things, we’re just stabbing in the chest repeatedly with a wooden stake (and hoping it’s not a zombie).”Plex first introduced Cloud Sync 5 years ago as a way for consumers to sync parts of their media collection to cloud storage accounts, including those offered by Google and Dropbox. This allowed consumers to keep access to media even when their local Plex server wasn’t available. However, the company said Tuesday that it has seen “very low usage” for Cloud Sync, and that the underlying technology was ripe for a revamp.One of the other more notable changes is the sunsetting of plugins. Plex has long offered users the ability to install plugins to let people access online content. However, the company said Tuesday that this feature has only been used by 2% of its users, and that it was too burdensome to continue to support the technology.The move away from plugins makes a lot of sense for Plex: Originally designed as an app for personal media collections, Plex has been putting a lot of emphasis on adding online content, including news and podcasts, in recent months. Each of these new content categories are much more tightly integrated into Plex than content brought in via plugins.Plex did use Tuesday’s blog post to also highlight a few new and upcoming features: The company is beginning to test better subtitle support, and it promised to improve its sync feature for mobile device syncing as well as playback on Android.last_img read more

Google experimenting with bottom URL bar on Android

first_imgGoogle experimenting with bottom URL bar on Android by Martin Brinkmann on November 02, 2016 in Google Chrome – 13 commentsGoogle is testing a new experimental flag on Chrome for Android currently that moves the URL bar of the mobile browser to the bottom.The URL bar, or address bar, is one of the core components of the browser. It is an interactive field that users can type in to search or load sites directly, and it also reveals the address of the current page on top of that.Since it is such an essential piece of any browser, it comes as no surprise that developers have not experimented a whole lot with placements for the URL bar.The majority of browsers display the URL bar at the top.Bottom URL Bar in ChromeGoogle runs an experiment currently on Google Chrome for Android — only available in Chrome Canary and Dev currently — that moves the address bar of the browser to the bottom when enabled.The feature is hidden behind a flag currently. These flags are used by Google to test not-yet-ready for public release features, or to test features to see how users find them.To enable the bottom URL Bar in Chrome for Android, do the following:Open Chrome Canary or Dev on Android.Load chrome://flags in the browser’s address bar. Or, load chrome://flags/#enable-chrome-home directly to jump to the right flag on the page.Tap on the menu icon, select “find on page” and enter home.This should jump to the Chrome Home flag right away.Tap on the pulldown menu and switch the state to enabled.Restart Google Chrome.The URL bar is at the bottom of the browser screen after the restart. It works exactly like before but with the difference that menus and such open towards the top and not the bottom of the screen.Google has not revealed its plans for the URL bar. It is unclear therefore whether the company considers moving the main bar of the browser to the bottom in the future, or whether this is just an experiment to see how users react to the change.Microsoft did move the URL bar of its Edge mobile browser to the bottom bar as well. The main advantage of this is that it is easier to reach the address field and menu of the browser. (via Caschy)Now You: What’s your take on this?
