"So Mian sahib told the MQM delegation to mend fences with the PPPP?"

Reigns of kings and feudal lords, based on notion 'we own the land so we rule the people', gave way to modern nation States that assert sovereignty in levying taxes, among other things. The Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan provides in Article 77, "No tax shall be levied for the purposes of the Federation except by or under the authority of Act of Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament)". Yet, No government shows interest in collecting 'agricultural income tax' from the rich absentee landlords under laws enacted by the national and provincial assemblies.
Plummeting oil prices are pushing some of the small-cap companies which flourished as part of the US shale energy boom close to their breaking point, while also prompting some well-known fund managers to aggressively buy energy stocks.
Germany, 1989: Snow falls as an excited crowd breaks through the Wall and people tearfully embrace loved ones after decades of living apart.
Military ruler General Ziaul Haq departed this world more than 26 years ago, but that supreme hypocrite's ghost continues to haunt almost every sphere of our national life. Using religion to seek validation of his power grab, he sowed seeds of so many problems this society faces today, obvious among them militancy, sectarian terrorism, religious intolerance, and decline of educational standards. To keep his opponents out of the Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) he also inserted Articles 62 and 63 in the Constitution, laying down qualifications and disqualifications for membership of Parliament.
Copyright law does not protect ideas or other no-expressive elements of a work. The law protects only the elements of work that are considered as creative expressions such as a particular way an author expresses an idea. For example, a novel is a creative work of art, which is fixed in a manuscript, and is subsequently published. The original expression used in the novel is protected by copyright, but ideas in novel are not subject to protection. It is very simple to state in this manner but its practical application is difficult.
Abbas Yusef points wistfully towards his olive trees, which are bearing their annual fruit. Yet again, the 70-year-old Palestinian farmer will be unable to make the autumn harvest. Yusef's olive groves lie on land either side of an Israeli settlement in the northern occupied West Bank. For years, he has been denied access by the army, and the settlers have ploughed it, uprooting many of his trees.
