Perhaps you are wondering that CPA stands for in Bridge. Before explaining, let me put the readers to a simple test by illustration. Suppose NS hold the following hand in a contract of 4S. The bidding proceeds as under with east opening 1C, south over calling 1S which north raises to 2S and when east rebids 3C and south 3S, north pushes to game by bidding 4S.

Mastering the art of jazz drumming wasn't the only objective on actor J.K. Simmons' mind when he signed on to play an abusive music teacher in the independent film "Whiplash."

One can witness his affection to his work in a solo show titled "Kutub Khana" at Sanat Gallery, Karachi in which he comments on the visual nature of printed language.
A new wristwatch is not something you buy every year. A look through old watch catalogues shows that despite small changes in style and trends, it's possible that a watch from 50 years ago could be considered stylish today.
