For years, the notion of on-demand, anywhere television has been slowly disrupting the traditional pay TV industry. Now it seems that streaming video has hit a watershed moment. In the past week, HBO announced it would launch a standalone streaming service in 2015 to deliver hit shows like "Game of Thrones" and "Girls," directly to viewers without a cable or satellite subscription.

Hitting the road with his band in a beat-up van, Sean Bohrman looked at the cassette deck and, instead of seeing an ancient relic, became inspired. He could listen to his own, and others', albums on the cheap. Seven years later, Bohrman helps run a label out of southern California, Burger Records, which has sold 350,000 cassettes - tiny in the universe of the music industry, but marking an unlikely mini-revival of an often-derided format whose obituary had been written in the 1990s.
In Bridge one remains to be focused all the time. The sustained level of concentration is the key for success at Bridge. Many a top Bridge player has suffered a blind spot due to the drop in the concentration level. Bridge makes one intricately involved in deciphering the quantum of tricks any side can take after concentrating on bidding and the opening lead.
British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, tipped for an Oscar for his performance as mathematician Alan Turing, said he hopes the film will be a worthy tribute to the wartime codebreaker persecuted for being gay. The "Sherlock Holmes" star spoke at the European premiere of "The Imitation Game".
Few young Pakistanis have heard of Dr Mohammad Abdus Salam, Pakistan's first Nobel laureate who was awarded the prestigious physics prize in 1979. The Pakistani state rejected Salam because he belonged to a minority Ahmadiyya community.
Malala Yousafzai may have won the Nobel Peace Prize, but she remains an object of hate for many Pakistanis who view her as a Western agent on a mission to shame her country. More difficult for her supporters to comprehend is the outpouring of invective from Pakistan's middle classes, who may be keen to educate their daughters but who object to airing the country's problems abroad.
Liaquat Ali Khan's 63rd death anniversary was observed on 16th October, 2014. Nawabzada Liaquat Ali Khan was, of course, the Prime Minister of Pakistan from August 15, 1947, onwards, but it was only in the wake of the Quaid's demise that his leadership capabilities were put to test. And it is only during the next three critical years (1948-51) that his multi-faced and compelling personality emerges the most conspicuously.
