"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is centered on the clash of two of the most recognisable caped heroes of the comic book world but it is the women of the DC Comics universe who defy expectations.
Bridge is a game that has many levels. From the beginners level to that of an expert, the dimension of Bridge keeps growing. While the various bidding gadgets of advanced systems give the bidding a sophisticated edge over the outdated ones, the advanced defense mechanisms developed put the defenders in an advantageous position. Even in dummy play, the experts conjure a line of play that turns out to be 100% safe free of error and fully defendable. Of course if in that course of play the defenders falter, the play becomes more easily impregnable.
Melissa McCarthy's star power lifted "The Boss" to an estimated $23.5 million opening weekend despite bad reviews and rough word-of-mouth for the R-rated comedy.
Hitting four sixes off four consecutive deliveries of the final over, West Indies' Braithwaite spectacularly highlighted the majesty of T20 cricket. While winning is very important, the way one plays the game is more important. As inscribed in the Ingall Hall in the Pakistan Military Academy (PMA) Kakul, "It is not what happens to you that matters but how you behave while it is happening". By any standards our performance was pathetic, no surprise that Pakistani players and officials came home to loud boos at the airports returning after elimination from the ICC World Twenty20 Tournament.
Previously, I had not given a thought to the fact men have an emotional and psychological problem about doing things like moping floors, dusting the furniture, cleaning the bathroom and toilet. You will have noticed in advertisements selling detergents, insecticides, germicides, or electrical gadgets like vacuums, washing machines, steam irons, even fridges and freezers the model is always a woman who is shown using these things, with a smile.
As the storm of Panama Leaks developed I could only go into the flash-back thinking of Pierce Bronson's "The Tailor of Panama", a movie written by John Sacksteder. But I was totally wrong about my perception mixing spying thriller with World's biggest financial scam. Tailor of Panama was totally a different theme. John LeCarre's spy thriller is brought to the big screen. A British spy is banished to Panama after having an affair with an ambassador's mistress. Once there he makes connection with a local tailor with a criminal past and connections to all of the top political and gangster figures in Panama. The tailor also has a wife, who works for the canal administrator, and a huge debt. The spy's mission is to learn what the President intends to do with the Panama Canal, but he's really in business for himself, blackmailing the tailor into spinning a fantastic tale about the canal being sold to China and former mercenaries ready to topple the current government.
Ejaz Saeed's paintings in an exhibition at the Artscene Gallery, Karachi were about his journey to discover, disclose and disillusioned his personality. And in the wider meaning any person should explore his/her personality to know the world around. Because before understanding one's surrounding a person must know himself/herself first.
