In Bridge, the thinking process of a good player should proceed on logical review of the inferential clues available that can steer him on to the right path for a successful play or defence. It all starts off from the bidding gaining momentum as the point of decision making draws nearer.

Agatha Christie fans have descended on her hometown of Torquay on the English Riviera for the 125th anniversary of the murder master's birth on Tuesday as the crime novel enjoys a global revival. Simplicity is the key to her enduring popularity, said Christie's only grandson Mathew Prichard, who has been the chief custodian of her work since the queen of crime fiction died in 1976.
As an ardent fan of the game, there were days when one remained glued to the Transistor Radio and subsequently the TV screen whenever Pakistan played another country at home or abroad. Starting with the newspaper headlines screaming, "England Fazalled" back in the fifties of the last century, one felt that the memorable Oval win was no fluke. Those were the days of skipper all-rounder A.H.Kardar, the great little prodigy Hanif Mohammed, fearless Nazar Mohammed, the great wicketkeeper-batsman Imtiaz Ahmad, Waqar Ahmed, the fiery pacers Khan Mohammed and Mahmood Hussain, and the leg-cutter specialist Fazal Mahmood who bamboozled England, besides the spinning trio of Shuja, Ghazali and Zulfiqar.
ImageMy friend, a veteran journalist, sometimes sends me a copy of an article, published in a newspaper I do not read, to get a second opinion. Normally, he drops the copy at the Karachi Press Club, but for some godforsaken reason this time he decided to post it. That was a month ago.

From afar, the Rhone glacier looks pristine, but on closer inspection the surface is covered with white blankets to slow the melting of the rapidly retreating ice. The dusty, white fleece covers stretch out over a huge area near the glacier's edge, some in rumpled piles alongside sand, rocks, a few wooden planks and a ladder on its side.
A small drone buzzes above a pristine Pacific beach in Mexico as troops stand guard, seeking to deter poachers from snatching sea turtle eggs that end up on restaurant menus. The drone, with six rotors that sound like a menacing hornet, has a GPS system and a camera to spot would-be "hueveros" (egg robbers) who hide between dunes and cacti along the Morro Ayuta beach in Oaxaca state.
