Bridge is in more than one way a game of foresight and judgement. Of the countless combinations that the cards can hold, there are a very few that can really matter in the context of the game at hand and therefore it becomes vitally important for the declarer to find, by using his foresight and imagination, the possible combination of cards that either his partner holds or his opponents.

Feted as a visionary but tormented genius who reshaped the silhouette of 20th century women, Yves Saint Laurent comes back to life in the first biopic of the man known as the "prince of fashion". The film by French actor-turned-director Jalil Lespert focuses on 20 years of the designer's life between 1956 and 1976 that saw him burst onto the fashion scene - first at Dior then at the head of his own house - and ascend to fame and fortune.
Bridge is a game where your skill as a player is tested almost on every deal that is a bit challenging. Most of the deals are routine. Some have a bit of a problem with an adverse opening lead. At times you feel pinched when the defense is extraordinarily brilliant which deprives you of your otherwise rightly played contract. But the greatest pleasure a Bridge player can derive is when he executes a play in a challenging contract of Bridge which being the only way the contract could come home. That is indeed a moment of fulfilment as was experienced by a well known Bridge expert on the following hand which was indeed a challenge for him to display his Bridge prowess.

That bonus air-time for a single dress at one of the world's premier global events is priceless for the likes of Dior, one of the strongest fashion houses in the cut-throat marketplace that the Oscars red carpet is today.
With sales in the global luxury sector starting to slow, Italian shoes and handbags stand out as powerful growth engines as the middle classes in emerging economies indulge the urge to accessorise. Companies like Casadei and Furla, which showed off their latest collections at Milan Fashion Week alongside the catwalk shows, are reaping the benefits.
It took Woody Allen to lure Australian star Cate Blanchett back to the silver screen, but her Oscar-winning turn as a disgraced New York socialite initially left the legendary director cold. Blanchett, 44, earlier this month took home the best actress Oscar for Allen's "Blue Jasmine" - her second Academy Award in a decade.
Most people entering crocodile territory keep a wary eye out on water and land, but research suggests they need to look up. Though the reptiles lack obvious physical features to suggest this is possible, crocodiles in fact climb trees all the way to the crowns, according to University of Tennessee researcher Vladimir Dinets.
