Angry Shahid Kapoor blasts reporter asks him Didnt you have any girlfriend

first_imgShahid Kapoor in Kabir SinghTwitterAfter the makers of Shahid Kapoor’s upcoming film Kabir Singh, released the high-octane trailer, the film has been the talk of the town.While the short video showcases Shahid in a never-seen-before rebellious attitude, taking drugs and drinking endless bottles of liquor, the fresh pairing of the actor and Kiara Advani has also grabbed a lot of eyeballs. The trailer also has Shahid and Kiara sharing a lip-lock.And it was during the media interaction at the trailer launch event that one of the reporters asked Kiara about how many kisses can one expect in the film. While the actress said that she has not kept a count, Shahid came to her rescue and added, “Ussi ka paisa hai (the money is for the kiss only)”, DNA reported.However, the matter didn’t end there and the same reporter repeated the question once again to Kiara later during the press conference and this left Shahid angry. He came to Kiara’s rescue once again and blasted the reporter, saying “Teri koi girlfriend nahi thi kya kaafi time se? Maine kaha dekhna hai toh paisa dena padega. Yeh nahi bola paisa ussi ka hai! Woh hi tune samjha and aisa tere dimaag mein atka! Arrey pappi chhod kar koi sawaal puchho, acting bhi ki hai logon ne iss picture mein. (Didn’t you have a girlfriend in a long time? I said if you want to see it [kissing scene], you will have to pay for it. I never said you will have to pay only for that! That’s what you assumed. Why do you have to ask only about kissing scenes? People have also acted in this film you know).”Kabir Singh is the Hindi remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy and will see Shahid as an alcoholic doctor. It is helmed by filmmaker Sandeep Vanga, who had directed the original.Meanwhile, Shahid recently fell victim of social media troll after a video of him getting out of his car and leaving the door open-surfaced online. Many netizens were quick to notice it and spared no time in schooling him on ‘basic manners’. While one of the Instagram users called him arrogant for leaving the door open, another said shutting the door of the car is basic manners and courtesy.last_img read more

President signs GO for CJ Sinhas visit abroad

first_imgChief justice Surendra Kumar SinhaPresident Abdul Hamid on Wednesday signed the government order (GO) allowing planned overseas tour of chief justice SK Sinha, who is officially said to have been on one-month leave.The president put his signature on the order after returning to the capital from Kishoreganj in the evening, law secretary Abu Saleh Sheikh Md Zahirul Haque told Prothom Alo.Law minister Anisul Huq said earlier in the afternoon that the prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, had signed the GO, a requirement for government officials and employees to visit any foreign country.The one-month leave since 2 October, reportedly taken by the chief justice, has given birth to controversies in the political arena as the opposition called it forced leave. Sinha himself did not come up with any public statement.Chief justice Sinha was said to have informed the president on Tuesday that he would stay in Australia between 13 October and 10 November. He received Australian visa last week.The law minister on Wednesday claimed that the chief justice’s private assistant sent a letter through the Appellate Division registrar to the law ministry for sending it to the president.last_img read more

Trump pledges largescale asylum crackdown

first_imgUS president Donald Trump. Photo: ReutersPresident Donald Trump said Thursday he plans to sign an order next week that could lead to the large-scale detention of migrants crossing the southern border and bar anyone caught crossing illegally from claiming asylum — two legally dubious proposals that mark his latest election-season barrage against illegal immigration.Trump also said he had told the US military mobilizing at the southwest border that if US troops face rock-throwing migrants, they should react as though the rocks were “rifles.””This is an invasion,” Trump declared, as he has previously on a subject that has been shown to resonate strongly with his base of Republican supporters. He made his comments at the White House in a rambling, campaign-style speech that was billed as a response to caravans of migrants traveling slowly by foot toward the US border. But Trump offered few details on how exactly he planned to overhaul an asylum system he claimed was plagued by “endemic abuse” that he said “makes a mockery of our immigration system.”US immigration laws make clear that migrants seeking asylum may do so either at or between border crossings. But Trump said he would limit that to official crossing points. The US also doesn’t have space at the border to manage the large-scale detention of migrants, with most facilities at capacity. Trump said the government would erect “massive tents” instead.His announcement marked Trump’s latest attempt to keep the issue of immigration front-and-centre in the final stretch before next Tuesday’s elections. Trump has spent the waning days of the campaign hammering the issue at every occasion as he tries to energize Republican voters using the same playbook that helped him win in 2016. In addition to deploying the military to the southern border to stave off the caravan, Trump announced plans to try to end the constitutionally-protected right of birthright citizenship for all children born in the USHe brought up immigration issues several times during a political rally Thursday night in Columbia, Missouri. He railed against “birth tourism,” where mothers from abroad travel to America to have babies so they will automatically be US citizens. And he denounced “chain migration,” where these new citizens then bring in their extended families into the country.”You come into the country — you’re like two months old … and you’re gonna bring ’em all — your aunts and uncles and grandfathers and lots of people,” he said.The president announced Wednesday that he was considering deploying up to 15,000 troops to the US-Mexican border in response to the caravans — roughly double the number the Pentagon said it currently plans for a mission that has been criticized as unnecessary, considering the caravans remain hundreds of miles away.Trump said Thursday he was “not going to put up with” any sort of violence directed at those US forces, warning the military would fight back. “When they throw rocks like they did at the Mexico military and police, I say consider it a rifle,” he said.The exact rules for the use of force by military police and other soldiers who will be operating near the border have not been disclosed, but in all cases troops have the right of self-defense.Still, Mark Hertling, a retired Army general, wrote on Twitter after Trump’s speech that no military officer would allow a soldier to shoot an individual throwing a rock. “It would be an unlawful order,” he wrote, citing the Law of Land Warfare.Trump said Thursday that, under his order, any migrants who do enter the country would be housed in “massive tent cities” he plans to build while their cases are processed.”We’re going to catch, we’re not going to release,” he said.Under current protocol, many asylum seekers are released while their cases make their way through backlogged courts — a process that can take years.Critics said the speech seemed mostly designed to scare, with no specifics on what mechanisms Trump intended to use to push through his desired changes. Administration officials have told The AP that Trump intends to invoke the same authority he used to push through his controversial travel ban, but it’s not clear if that’s what he was doing with Thursday’s speech.”He’s really trying to scare the American public into thinking these are thousands of dangerous thugs,” said Greg Chen, of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “It’s a classic strategy that goes back to 19th century nativist thinking.”Trump and other administration officials have long said those seeking asylum should come through legal ports of entry. But many migrants are unaware of that guidance, and official border crossings have grown increasingly clogged. Immigration officials have turned away asylum-seekers at border crossings because of overcrowding, telling them to return at a later date. Backlogs have become especially bad in recent months at crossings in California, Arizona and Texas, with people generally waiting five weeks to try to claim asylum at San Diego’s main crossing and sleeping out in the open for days at a time.Migrants who cross illegally are generally arrested and often seek asylum or some other form of protection. Claims have spiked in recent years, and there is currently a backlog of more than 800,000 cases pending in immigration court. Administration officials have railed against what they say are loopholes designed to encourage people, especially from Central America, to come to the US and claim asylum. Generally, only about 20 percent of applicants are approved.The US fielded more than 330,000 asylum claims in 2017, nearly double the number two years earlier and surpassing Germany as highest in the world.But it remains unclear how many people currently en route to the US will even make it to the border.There are currently four caravans. The main group of about 4,000 migrants — down from its estimated peak of more than 7,000 — remains in southern Mexico, hundreds of miles from the border. A second, smaller group of 1,000 or so is more than 200 miles behind the first. The third band of about 500 from El Salvador has made it to Guatemala, and a fourth group of about 700 set out from the Salvadoran capital Wednesday.Similar caravans have gathered regularly over the years and have generally dwindled by the time they reach the southern border. And most have passed largely unnoticed.Trump has nonetheless mounted an enormous show of force in response to their movement — coinciding with elections that will determine which party controls Congress.The first 100 active duty troops arrived at the border in McAllen, Texas, on Thursday — part of the “more than 7,000″ troops the Pentagon said were being sent to support Customs and Border Protection agents.”These illegal caravans will not be allowed into the United States and they should turn back now because they’re wasting their time,” Trump said Thursday.Notably, he said his executive order would come next week, which means it could be after Election Day.Trump has rejected the idea he has been “fearmongering” and using the issue for political purposes, but on Thursday he blamed Democrats for the “incompetent, very, very stupid laws that we have.” He noted at one point, “Women want security.”Trump also tweeted a video Wednesday alleging, without evidence, that Democrats were responsible for allowing a homicidal immigrant into the US The video was reminiscent of the infamous “Willie Horton” ad used against Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988 and condemned as racist.last_img read more

Government Plans Dramatic Expansion Of Migrant Child Shelters

first_img Share Cedar AttanasioCongress passed a bill last week that would allocate $3 billion to the Department of Health and Human Services to improve and expand its shelter network.The Department of Health and Human Services is dramatically expanding its network of child shelters across the country in order to avoid the kind of scandal that occurred in Clint, Texas, where scores of immigrant children were warehoused together.“There are too many kids in Border Patrol stations right now, and we’re working to get them out of those stations and into HHS care,” says Mark Weber, HHS deputy assistant secretary for public affairs.Last week, Congress passed a humanitarian aid bill that will pump $3 billion into HHS to beef up its child shelter network. The same week, the agency announced a new 1,300-bed emergency shelter for unaccompanied migrant children to open in Carrizo Springs, Texas, later this month.The minors, ages 13-17, will be housed in reconverted oilfield worker housing, with the addition of a soccer field and classrooms. The children remain in government custody until they can be released to sponsors in the U.S., usually a family member.The contract, worth up to $300 million, went to BCFS, a San Antonio nonprofit with deep experience in emergency management.“During hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, we’re the good guys that come to town. The mayor wants to take me to lunch. People pat you on the back,” says BCFS chairman Kevin Dinnin, a former medic with more than 30 years of experience. “But in these immigration influx facilities, I can’t win. Somebody’s always going to be mad at you and you’re going to be under the microscope and be criticized.”No sooner was the announcement out, than angry workers streamed into a park in Boston. They were protesting their employer, the online retailer, Wayfair, for selling BCFS $200,000 worth of bunkbeds. “Shut it down!” they chanted about the soon-to-open child shelter in South Texas.A growing number of activists oppose every type of federal immigrant confinement: Border Patrol holding cells, ICE detention centers, and HHS child shelters.There are currently 168 HHS shelters in 23 states. The most controversial of these are temporary emergency influx facilities, which give the government flexibility to handle spikes in migrant children. Today, there is only one emergency shelter, located at a former federal Job Corps campus in Homestead, Fla., operated by a private corporation, Caliburn International. It has 2,400 children in custody and is the site of frequent demonstrations.Critics complain that these shelters are huge, impersonal and unlicensed, that children’s movement is regimented and they are not free to leave.Yet even attorney Neha Desai says emergency intake shelters are a major improvement over barren Border Patrol cells. She is director of immigration at the National Center for Youth Law, and one of the lawyers appointed by a federal court to oversee the conditions of migrant children in government custody.“I mean, it’s certainly good from the perspective of getting kids out of [Customs and Border Protection] facilities,” she says. “We’ve seen the extent of inhumane, horrifying situations of unaccompanied children there. That will be alleviated by having someplace to transfer the children to. But, of course, influx facilities cannot be a long-term solution.”As a consequence of President Trump’s aggressive immigration policies, there’s a swelling backlash against the whole notion of the government housing migrant children.Last week, Bank of America, under pressure from activists and shareholders, agreed to stop lending to for-profit companies that run ICE jails or HHS shelters.Democratic presidential candidates are also piling on. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard recently visited the emergency shelter in Homestead, Fla. “Right now it looks like there’s about seven or eight kids walking in a single-file line,” she said, standing with demonstrators looking over the facility’s fence. “This is the kind of thing you see in a prison.”Caliburn has pushed back, asking its critics to take a tour and see for themselves how the children are cared for.Kevin Dinnin, of BCFS, has been through the fire before. He faced the wrath of protesters last year when his company ran the sprawling tent camp for children in Tornillo, in the West Texas desert. It closed in January.“We did have threats and lots of ugly communication,” he says, looking back on the Tornillo experience. “When we’ve been asked to respond to the border crisis, we want to be the last resort because it’s so unpopular. It’s a lightning rod.”Dinnin says migrant children in HHS care are heavily supervised, because teenagers will be teenagers.“There’s going to be bullies. There’s going to be inappropriate language. There’s going to be acting out,” he says. “So in most of these facilities, the number one priority is the safety of those kids and not allow anything to happen to them.”The government has been through this before, too. HHS had to find places for nearly 60,000 unaccompanied children during a migrant surge in 2016. Now the agency is on course to surpass that total.In addition to the BCFS shelter in South Texas, HHS is opening a second emergency shelter at Fort Sill, an army post in Lawton, Okla. And eventually, the agency wants to phase out these massive, expensive emergency shelters altogether and add smaller, licensed facilities that are more suitable for children.“Having such a large facility is not ideal. So we’ve started a process where we’re starting to look for shelters that would be state-licensed, and spread across a number of cities…that would be ready to go in case of an influx,” says Mark Weber of HHS.To that end, the agency recently put out a request for bids for five new child shelters — 2,500 beds, in all — in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Atlanta and Phoenix.Weber says contractors have been slow to come forward.“The environment we’re working in is political, its polarizing, it’s controversial, and it’s incredibly emotional,” he says.Ultimately, Weber says the government wants to move the children out of Border Patrol cells, through the shelter network and into permanent homes as soon as possible.Because HHS has streamlined its rules for vetting sponsors, the time immigrant kids spend in the shelters has been cut in half, from 91 days last November to 44 days at present.But for some critics, that’s still too long.Copyright 2019 NPR.

Aussies taking full advantage of hotels study

first_imgAussies like to party … in hotel rooms A quarter of Australian travellers have confessed to smuggling guests into their hotel rooms, running naked down hotel corridors and taking longer than normal showers, a survey has revealed .While 40 percent of those polled admitted to smuggling family and friends into a room booked for only two guests, more than half said they would draw the line at pinching breakfast for their ‘unofficial’ guests.And it’s not just the young ones running amok, as the survey shows those aged 45 to 54 were most likely to host room parties or get their gear off.According to the study, Aussies take a relaxed approach to the environment, with 63 percent of respondents requiring an extra key to keep the air-conditioning running all day and 70 percent of people claiming that after taking ten minutes to figure out how to turn on a hotel shower, they will spend longer in there.ZUJI Australia and APAC managing director James Gaskell said that late checkouts and free WiFi were the top priorities for Australian hotel guests.

As the tray that holds the field at University of Phoenix Stadium is pushed up against the North wall, the bridge simply makes it easier for fans to get from the West side of the stadium to the East and vice versa. At training camp, however, it’s perfect.The Cardinals lay out about a 47 yard field turf field against the north wall for some of the lineman walk-throughs.  That pushes the tray into a different position than gameday: right under the south bridge.  You can hear the coaches and see the hits happen right underneath you while having a great down-the-field view of the passing drills. Sure, to protect the grass they move different drills all over the place, but a lot of the contact work happens under the bridge.If you plan to be a regular at camp, try a day on the bridge and tell me what you think. If you want a quick tip for watching Cards Camp, do not underestimate the beauty of the south bridge. Although Darnell Dockett might disagree since he tore his ACL there, for a fan, this is the bridge over beautiful water.At almost every sporting event, we in the media have an advantage over the average fan in our seats and sight lines.  At Cards Camp, you have the advantage. The south bridge is not for the faint of heart. There are no seats so you’re standing all of practice. If you can “stand it,” it’s the place to see everything.

We wanted to select a great Bond picture,” says LaDouceur.There’s also a nod to some cult fan favourites.“We dug deep and have David Lynch’s Dune this year, which we’ve never run in the festival before. It’s the first version of Frank Herbert’s classic. We also have Drunken Master, which was the original King fu comedy and was actually directed by Woo-Ping Yuen, who did all the choreagraphy for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon as well,” he tells NEWS 1130.“And if you’re a fan of cult films, you can’t miss our evening of The Big Lebowski and Raising Arizona from the Coen brothers. It’s the 20th anniversary of the Big Lebowski and we really wanted to celebrate it as a true classic. For so many people, it’s a film they watch over and over again and it’s meant to be seen with an audience.”And don’t be surprised if people dress up in costumes for their favourite films.“We absolutely encourage it. I wouldn’t be surprised if people came in character for Shawn of the Dead. We have it, Hot Fuzz and the third film in Edward Wright and Simon Pegg’s Cornetto trilogy,The World’s End. All three are being showcased on Saturday,” he says.Tickets start at $8.99 for individual films, but LaDouceur says avid movie lovers can see all 15 films for $5.00 per ticket.Flashback Film Fest runs from February 2nd to 8th at select Cineplex theatres across Canada.

Mendes said he used to play hockey.When the British host told Mendes he’d never played ice hockey in his life, the two decided to hit up a rink together, with Corden suited up as goalie.“If you’re a goalie you don’t have to move much,” Mendes explained.“You just stand there and let me take shots at you.”Corden fumbled his way through blocking Mendes’ goal shots, eventually landing on his knees.“This is my first and last time playing ice hockey,” he said before retiring from the game.Mendes isn’t just kidding around Corden’s show either. He’s also slated to perform songs every night until Thursday.The move comes as Mendes racks up his third chart-topper on the Billboard 200 for the week ended May 31.His new album sold 182,000 units in the United States, figures that include both physical and digital sales as well as streaming numbers.In Canada, it sold 32,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music Canada.Mendes told Corden that with his third album he’s found a new independence. He recently decided to move away from his parents’ home in Pickering, Ont. and into nearby Toronto.“I have my own place, finally, which at first sucked because cooking for yourself and cleaning your house just sucks, until it’s actually kind of nice,” Mendes said.“You don’t clean your own house,” Corden responded.“I do a little bit,” Mendes said. “Like, no I don’t, you’re right.

Hellenic says parliament put end to insecurity

first_imgHellenic Bank said on Monday that Sunday’s vote at the parliament which paved the way for the completion of the deal with the Co-op puts an end to the insecurity of recent months, marked by massive deposit withdrawals by the customers of the government-owned lender.With the completion of the deal, subject to shareholder and supervisor approval, “Hellenic Bank’s balance sheet will be considerably strengthened while the considerable reduction of the non-performing loans ratio and other synergies will lead to a reduction of the risk in the balance sheet and to a more robust banking entity,” Hellenic said in an emailed statement.Lawmakers approved on Sunday the extension of government guarantees to Hellenic Bank to shield it from potential impairments resulting from the acquisition of Co-op assets, in accordance with the terms negotiated by the two banks.In addition, the parliament passed bills designed to expedite the reduction of non-performing loans, a condition set by the European Commission’s competition watchdog.Co-op customers withdrew €2bn in deposits in the first three months of the year on concerns about the bank’s capital adequacy after it made little progress in reducing its stock of non-performing loans. Depositors also continued to withdraw savings from co-operatives in recent weeks on fears the parliament could block the deal with Hellenic.Hellenic’s market share in performing loans will more than triple to 22 per cent while its share in deposits will increase from 12 per cent to 30 per cent, Hellenic said. The non-performing loans share is expected to drop from currently 52 per cent to around 25 per cent with the coverage ratio remaining at 60 per cent. The net loans to deposits ratio is expected to be less than 50 per cent, allowing the bank to extend more loans.With the completion of the deal, the second largest company acquisition after Bank of Cyprus was forced to acquire the operations of the Cyprus Popular Bank in 2013, “both the Hellenic Bank and Co-op customers will be part of a larger, healthier and dynamic organisation which will offer them a wide range of improved banking services,” Hellenic said.“For the time, there will be no change for Co-op customers concerning their transactions,” Hellenic, the only major Cypriot lender which survived the 2013 banking crisis without resorting to a bailout or bail-in, said. “Hellenic Bank will inform them timely in the case of future changes.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
