Four years after his death, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs still fascinates the public, with two major new films this fall analysing his life and career.

When Matt Damon needed to play an astronaut stranded on Mars, he and director Ridley Scott were able to turn to US space agency NASA to make the extreme circumstances of "The Martian" as scientifically accurate as possible. "We're kind of on the cusp of being able to do everything that happens in the movie," Damon said, speaking of space exploration.
With Kristen Stewart of "Twilight" fame and Nicholas Hoult of "X-Men", the science-fiction film "Equals" is sure to have some box-office draw, but it failed to win much critical acclaim when screened in competition at the Venice Film Festival.
Move over Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore. Seoul is emerging as Asia's new fashion showcase, with the world's top luxury firms seeking to cash in on the regional trend-setting popularity of South Korean pop culture. Fast-growing Asia is a key market driving the global luxury industry, with purchases by Chinese consumers accounting for one third of global sales, according to market researcher Bain & Company.
Distributional hands are always exciting for play as well as defence. To add the icing on the cake they are even challenging in the bidding too. For it is not a silent one way sequence. The opponents with their likewise wild distribution keep poking in to make your bidding difficult for the required level and the suit, which can benefit you most. Sometimes the competition carries you way over board and at times it pushes you to the right level conference with the correct suit chosen amongst the alternates available. The beauty of Bridge lies in how you judge the optimum level and that too how soon.
After 30 years of darkness there is a revival of Pakistan's film industry. But I do hope it is not called by some silly name like Bollywood or Lollywood, because the films being produced are not just the Hollywood type; they include art films, biopics and docudramas, all of excellent quality and crowd-pullers to boot. Karachi is the centre of the revived film industry.
In a vivid description of the American and Western mindset Rafia Zakria in Aljazeera, summed up the game of Terrorism quoting the words of Serhat Ulaglu a Turkish academic at the Terrorism Conference held in the Uskudar municipality on the shores of the Bosphorus: "It is Western Governments which through their intermeddling and interference have created terror organisations like ISIL and Boko Haram". The columnist goes on to dilate on the Pakistani experience and concludes as follows: "Pakistan's experience of being hectored (bullied) into supporting the war on terror should give the Turks some pause.......In the words of Erdogan "The biggest failing on the war on terror was the proclivity (bad tendency) to define terrorism only according to the dictates of the United States." The conference urged the academics to develop a vocabulary of terrorism that goes beyond the binaries that view terrorism as a Muslim problem.
