From outfits for Lady Gaga and Beyonce to disabled fashion: Antonio Urzi, a long-time collaborator with Armani, is trying to revolutionise Milan fashion week with creations designed for amputees. Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Britney Spears have all worn his masterpieces, but Urzi's latest face is hunky British amputee Jack Eyers, the star of a radically different catwalk show which mixes able-bodied and disabled models.

It has become common for writers to destroy history by projecting their own views. It is disturbing to read an article or any writing which is based on hearsay and inaccurate information, reflecting the prejudice views of the writer.
Justice Rana Bhagwandas died in Karachi at a local hospital after a long illness on Monday 23 February 2015, at the age of 72. This is not an obituary of a single great man, but of the passing away of tolerance, the single human quality which once defined the character of the people of Sindh.
Since Childhood, I have been fascinated by the marvels of history. During my school years, while visiting my father's office, during summer holidays, before going to attend his long meetings, he would give me topics to write upon. Amongst them, I recall being asked to write upon, 'what would be the history of India, if Aurangzeb was born in the era of Akbar and Akbar in the era of Aurangzeb.' And 'what would be the history of India if Napoleon's aid had reached Tipu Sultan and the battle of Seringapatam would have been won by Tipu.' Obviously the intention of my dad was to encourage and inspire me to go on an imagination over drive. I was to write not on what had happened but on what hadn't. History since then to me has been a subject where once an event has occurred or hasn't occurred can be made to appear inevitable by a competent and imaginative historian.
Using art to create peace and harmony is like an antidote to the ailment of terrorism. Art acts as a positive pole to repel and nullify the negative one. Art is a hope to a better society. While receiving an invitation to a group show of inmates of the Karachi Central Jail I remembered visiting Central Jail Karachi two years ago on an invitation to distribute the proceeds to the inmate artists collected by selling their paintings at various art galleries in Karachi who studied art of painting at Central Jail Karachi's Fine Art School. And that was a pleasing experience to see such a change brought by art in those inmates.
Forensic science, which has fascinated generations with its unravelling of gruesome crime mysteries, is being put under the microscope in an exhibition of real criminal investigations in London. "Forensics: The anatomy of crime" at the Wellcome Collection traces the art of forensic inquiry, spanning 18th-century Japanese artistic studies of decomposition to Victorian murder cases.
Marriage therapist Valerie Goss turned on her computer one day and found that all of her data was being held hostage. Malicious code referred to as "ransomware" had encrypted her files and locked them away. Cyber criminals demanded $500 in hard-to-trace virtual currency Bitcoin to give her the key. The ransom would jump to $1,000 in Bitcoin if Goss took more than a day to pay.
