The US sub-prime mortgage crisis that spelled ruin for thousands and left many homeless is not exactly a catchy subject for a Hollywood movie. But in a new drama - "99 Homes" - Oscar-nominated actress Laura Dern tackles the financial meltdown that touched millions and sent ripples across the globe.

In his five decades seducing cinemagoers, James Bond has foreshadowed social revolutions and the rise of multinational terrorist organisations, turning into a popular culture icon along the way. And with his 24th silver-screen assignment "Spectre" due to premiere on October 26, the British spy seems more popular than ever. His last outing in "Skyfall" took over $1 billion (880 million euros) at the box office.
Bridge is all a about communication, whether in the play, bidding or Defense. Hence the name of the game Bridge, which is nothing but a bridge between the two players to facilitate access of information that would ultimately determine the nature, validity and success of any contract of Bridge. But many a time in the heat of the moment, even the best of players tend over look this bridge between them and so fall a prey to their own carelessness. The pitfalls in Bridge can be the most unexpected at times but the good declarer is the one who has the foresight and the vision to anticipate what lies ahead.
Jean-Marc Vallée's latest film "Demolition," is an intimate study of grief and the often polarising ways people deal with it. Vallée calls it his most "rock and roll" film to date, both for its pulsing soundtrack in a film otherwise punctuated by silence, and its often provocative and offbeat portrayal of grief. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Davis Mitchell, a New York investment banker coming to grips with his wife's sudden death. But he has been sleepwalking through life for so long that he is detached from the tragedy.
Liaquat is often referred to as Jinnah's "right hand man" and heir apparent. He is credited with having headed the team of lieutenants which had so successfully put Jinnah's plans through during the momentous 1937-47 decade, which made Pakistan possible. His decisive role in filling in the vacuum caused by Jinnah's sad demise so superbly, in tackling stupendous and critical problems so deftly, and in divising measures for the consolidation of Pakistan so meticulously has won high praise from both contemporary observers and historians. "No one played the role of Cavour to his leader's Mazzini", wrote The Times of India (Bombay). "He guided the fortunes of his country with a certainty which amounted to genius", remarked The Stateman (Calcutta) on his assassination.
The Quaid-e-Azam must have had very good reasons to opt for Parliamentary Democracy as the system of governance in Pakistan. Little did he know or anticipate what a mess his descendants would land this country in after his departure, as has been witnessed in its checkered 68-year history.
On the 27th of Zilhaj, October 12, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah presided over an extraordinary meeting on law and order in the context of Muharram security arrangements during the first 10 days of Muharram. Governor Ishratul Ibad Khan attended the meeting, which included relevant ministers from the Sindh cabinet and Rangers Major DG General Bilal Akbar, additional inspectors general of police A.D. Khwaja, Mushtaq Meher and Sanaullah, and heads of intelligence agencies. This list of persons is important as it is also important to take notice of the late date of the meeting. It was held at the eleventh hour, just three days before Muharram.
