After going intergalactic with "Guardians of the Galaxy," and hanging an entire city from the sky in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," Marvel is reversing its scale but still packing the punches with an insect-sized superhero.

ImageIn the last scene of "Dope," a light-hearted comedy produced by Pharrell Williams, Forest Whitaker and Sean Combs, the academically inclined main character - a nerd from the 'hood - asks why anyone would question his desire to attend Harvard.
Only rarely does one come across a truly extraordinary defence in Bridge which creates headlines and becomes the subject matter of review in bridge columns with the defender applauded copiously on such a well chalked out defence strategy. We all know that defence is the most difficult facet of competitive Bridge. True, the defender who is not on lead has the advantage of viewing 27 cards at one glance with the partner's interest gleaned from the opening lead that he makes after careful analysis of the bidding that has taken place which does at times reveal the defence road to success. But most of the time the defenders rely on what strategy of play the declarer makes in the making of his contract and they plan a counter strategy accordingly after viewing what the dummy has to offer to the declarer.
Recent events in Karachi illustrate that the lack of managing water as a vital capital can have a violent impact on society, much more than the lack of finance capital. Mismanagement of water as a capital should be a health warning of the current and future state of affairs.We do not witness the same social rage and political fighting when there is shortage of financial capital in the capital markets - disruptive as they maybe with the likes of the Occupy movement in London and the US that began in 2011.
There are two types of vehicles which you see everywhere, rushing at break-neck speed, siren screaming, lurching from one traffic lane into another, disregarding traffic signals. One is the police car, in service of the VIPs or themselves, the other is the ambulance taking some distressed soul to hospital. Same style driving but morally so different. Other drivers curse the police but usually utter a prayer for the patient in the ambulance. The police has no business inconveniencing other drivers on the road. They make indiscriminate use of the siren as a means of clearing the way for there vehicle. The police car siren is officially to be sounded only when the police is chasing criminals. But that is one time you do not hear the siren or see the police at the crime scene. You see the ambulance.
Scientists are about to embark on the biggest search yet for alien life, sweeping the skies for signals of civilizations beyond our solar system with $100 million from a Russian billionaire and the backing of physicist Stephen Hawking.
Visually pleasing and dramatic, Akbar Khan highlighted the beauty and romance of colours through his almost black and white paintings. The hint of colours in a single object or a figure of birds, animals and humans made his paintings more attractive. While going through the recent paintings by Akbar Khan it seems like a world of dark dreams with a pinch of colours.
