Despite being in captivity, he talked like a ‘true soldier’: IAF pilot Abhinandan’s father

Mumbai: The father of Indian pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, captured by Pakistan after air combat, on Thursday said he was proud of his son’s bravery and hoped for his safe return home, as he thanked citizens for their support and good wishes.

Air Marshal (retd) S Varthaman said in a statement his son talked (in purported videos circulating on social media) like a ‘true soldier’ despite being in captivity and that he was praying he would not get tortured in the neighbouring country and return home ‘safe and sound’.

Pakistan held Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman Wednesday after fighter jets of both nations engaged in an air battle following an unsuccessful attempt to target Indian military installations in retaliatory strikes.

“Thank you, my friends, for your concern and wishes. I thank God for his blessings, Abhi is alive, not injured, sound in mind, just look at the way he talked so bravely…a true soldier…we are so proud of him,” his father said.

“I am sure all your hands and blessings are on his head…prayers for his safe return. I pray that he does not get tortured and comes home safe and sound in body and mind,” the veteran IAF personnel further said.

He thanked citizens for being with the family in this hour of need. “We draw our strengths from your support and energy,” he added.

Chris Gayle to rethink about decision to retire from ODIs after World Cup 2019

London: Swashbuckling left-handed batsman Chris Gayle enjoyed run-soaked innings against England in the fourth ODI of the five-match series that he confessed he might rethink the decision to retire from the format at the end of the World Cup. Ten days after Gayle announced his intention to retire after the World Cup, the West Indies cricketer smashed 162 off 97 balls which saw 14 sixes and 11 boundaries, second-highest score of his ODI career.

It was his second century of a series, amassing 347 runs from three innings at an average of 115.66 and a strike rate of 120.06. He became the 14th batsman and second from the Caribbean after Brian Lara, to reach the milestone of 10,000 ODI runs.

“I think this is one of the most entertaining games I have ever played in. It was a fantastic game of cricket. I have been playing a lot of T20 cricket so it is always going to be a difficult coming back into 50 over cricket. But eventually, the body gets accustomed to the 50-over format. What is the matter with the body? I am nearly 40. But could I un-retire? We will see. We will take it slowly,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Gayle, as saying.

Also read: Chris Gayle to retire from ODIs after World Cup 2019, says he’s the ‘greatest player in the world’

“I just have to work on the body and then maybe you can see a bit more Chris Gayle, maybe. Things change quickly. Hopefully, the body can change in the next couple of months and we can see what happens. To get the 10,000 run milestone is a great feeling. I have done it in T20 as well. It is a fantastic achievement from my point of view. Doing it for West Indies as well, that makes it even more superb,” he continued.

In spite of Gayle’s heroics, West Indies lost the fourth match to England as they were 29 runs short at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada on Wednesday. Gayle, however, said his side could have won had they played “a bit smarter”. “We did not utilise that new ball well. If we had we would have been chasing 380. I am sure the team are all disappointed. I can see the expression on their faces. It is a learning process for the young players. If they do things differently they could have won. So it is good to see that body language when you lose. When that situation comes again I am sure it will be totally different,” he said. A 1-2 down West Indies, with an aim to level the series, will meet England for the fifth and final ODI on March 2 in St Lucia.

Maharashtra Assembly approves interim budget without debate  

Mumbai: The Maharashtra Assembly on Thursday approved the vote-on-account, which has budgetary provisions for four months of the next financial year (April to July this year), without any debate. Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil and NCP members Ajit Pawar and Jayant Patil said they were tabling their respective speeches on the interim budgetary provisions on the floor of the House.

The appropriation bill and vote-on-account were subsequently passed by a voice vote and without any debate. Reports of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) and the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) were also tabled. The House was then adjourned for an hour.

State Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar on Wednesday presented an interim budget for 2019-20 having an estimated revenue deficit of Rs 19,784 crore and provision of special fund for farm loan waiver. Earlier, as soon as the House assembled for the day on Thursday, NCP legislator Jitendra Awhadurged Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to move a motion that the state along with rest of the country stood firmly behind the armed forces and Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured by Pakistan after an air combat on Wednesday.

He said the state should lead by example and a one-line resolution about this should be sent to Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao, to be forwarded to President Ram Nath Kovind. Before the session, Awhad told reporters that the state’s ongoing budget session should not be curtailed due to threat perception amid rising Indo-Pak tensions. “We need to show courage and poise by carrying out our daily functioning here. Winding up of the session in the name of security (threat) would give a wrong message,” he said.

Katherine Brunt’s five-wicket haul restricts India women to 205-8 in 3rd ODI

Mumbai: Medium-pacer Katherine Brunt grabbed a five-for as India frittered away the platform laid by vice-captain Smriti Mandhana and Punam Raut to finish at 205 for 8 against England in the third and final ODI here Thursday. The 33-year-old Brunt (5-28) was the wrecker-in-chief as the hosts suffered a middle-order collapse after they slumped from 129 for 1 to 150 for 7 and never recovered from that. However, Deepti Sharma (27 not out) and Shikha Pandey (26) ensured that India crossed the 200-run mark with 47-run eighth wicket stand.

Earlier, opting to bat, the hosts lost Jemimah Rodrigues (0) early, after she played onto her stumps off Brunt. But then Mandhana (66 off 74 balls) and Raut (56 off 97 balls) steadied the ship with their 129-run second wicket stand. They initially played with caution and later hammered the loose deliveries as they toyed with the English attack.

Mandhana, who mostly relied on pulls and drives, stuck eight fours and a six, while Raut hit seven boundaries. But Brunt pegged back England by removing both Mandhana and Raut in the 29th over. While Mandhana gave a sitter to Dannie Wyatt, Raut was cleaned up.

Brunt then trapped Mona Meshram (0) in front of the wicket and later sent Mithali Raj (7) back to complete the five-wicket haul. Taniya Bhatia (0), Jhulan Goswami (1) also fell cheaply as the visitors made a splendid comeback in the middle-overs.

After Ranveer Singh, Amitabh Bachchan raps for his upcoming film

Ranveer Singh is on seventh heaven with the smash hit success of Gully Boy. His portrayal of underground music scene in Mumbai through his character, Murad, inspired by real life rappers, was appreciated by both his fans and critics. Ranveer rapped most songs from the film and therefore set a trend in the industry. This seems to have inspired Sujoy Ghosh too! From what we hear, Amitabh Bachchan is all set to rap his way to our hearts with Badla. The megastar is set to record for a song called Aukaat which sets us in mood for the film. The makers claim that this promotional track will appear at the start of the credits and will mirror the angst in society. Amitabh’s signature voice has given the song another dimension, revealed the makers.

Amitabh Bachchan is reuniting with his Pink co-star Taapsee Pannu for Badla and the trailer has already generated some amaze buzz for the flick. The makers are not leaving any stone unturned to promote the movie. Shah Rukh Khan, who is one of the producers of the film is teaming up with Amitabh to shoot a conversational video.

Amitabh’s last film was Thugs Of Hindostan with Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Katrina Kaif. Though positioned as a well mounted movie, it was a debacle at the box office. His next is Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. The Ayan Mukerji directorial is a superhero love story.

Delhi High Court upholds eviction order, asks AJL to vacate Herald House

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Thursday dismissed National Herald publisher AJL’s plea challenging a single judge order to vacate its premises at ITO here. A bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Rao rejected the appeal of Associated Journals Ltd (AJL) in which it had challenged the Centre’s decision asking it to vacate the ITO premises.

“We have dismissed the appeal,” the bench said.

It also rejected the oral request of AJL’s counsel that they be granted two week’s time to vacate the premises. AJL had appealed against the single judge’s December 21, 2018 order that directed it to vacate the premises at ITO within two weeks, after which eviction proceedings under the Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorised Occupants) Act, 1971, would be initiated. The single judge had also said that by transfer of AJL’s 99 per cent shares to Young India (YI), the beneficial interest of AJL’s property worth Rs 413.40 crore stands “clandestinely” transferred to YI.

In its order, the single judge had said that AJL has been “hijacked” by YI, in which the Gandhis are shareholders. The December order had come on AJL’s plea challenging the Centre’s order to vacate the building. The Centre had ended its 56-year-old lease and asked AJL to vacate the premises, saying no printing or publishing activity was going on and the building was being used only for commercial purposes.

During the arguments earlier, AJL, represented by senior advocate Abhishek M Singhvi, had said transfer of the company’s majority shares to YI would not make Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi the owners of the Herald building here. He also contended that the Centre never raised the issue of lack of printing activity at the Herald building prior to June 2018, by when publishing of some of its online editions had already commenced.

The Centre, represented by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, had argued that the manner the shares were transferred, the court needs to “pierce the corporate veil” of AJL to see who owns the premises — Herald House — leased to it for running a printing press.

The government had contended that the land in question was allocated to AJL on lease for printing press and this “dominant purpose” was stopped several years ago. The Centre had contended before the court that transfer of 99 per cent stake in AJL to YI, which bought over the Rs 90 crore debt for a consideration of Rs 50 lakh, led to a “virtual” sale of the Herald building at ITO.

The L&DO had ended the lease – entered into with AJL on August 2, 1962, and made perpetual on January 10, 1967 – asking the company to hand over the possession by November 15, 2018. In its plea, AJL had also said the digital versions of English newspaper National Herald, Hindi’s Navjivan and Urdu’s Qaumi Awaz have commenced from 2016-17.

The weekly newspaper ‘National Herald on Sunday’ resumed on September 24, 2017, and the place of publication was the ITO premises, AJL said, adding the Hindi weekly newspaper Sunday Navjivan was being published since October last year from the same premises.

New Delhi: It is necessary to ensure that nothing is done to dent the morale of the security forces, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday, a day after Pakistani fighter jets violated Indian air space in response to Indian forces targeting a JeM terror camp in its territory. Modi also said India will fight, live, work and win as one and nobody can create hurdles in its march towards development.

“The enemy is trying to destabilise us, carry out terror strikes… they want to stop our growth… we will fight, live work and win as one,” he said.

He was interacting with about one crore BJP workers in 15,000 locations through what the party said was the “world’s largest video conference”. Modi said in his address that the 2014 election was a mandate for fulfilling people’s necessities and the 2019 polls will be about fulfilling people’s aspirations.

Indians have to be hard working in all spheres and should be grateful to all those who are protecting the country, the prime minister said. Some people, for their selfish interests, dislike a strong government, he said. BJP workers need to tell people the benefits of a strong government, he added.

An IAF pilot was captured by Pakistan after an air combat Wednesday. Both sides said they shot down each other’s warplanes.

83: Meet Dhairya Karwa, the Sardar soldier from ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ who is now Ravi Shastri

It comes as a jolting surprise to know that the young promising actor from Jaipur, Dhairya Karwa who played the Sikh soldier Sartaj in Aditya Dhar’s Uri: The Surgical Strike, is not a Sikh in real life.

Says the method actor, “No, I am not a Sikh in real life. I did my prep to play the role in Uri. I did whatever I could. I spent two weeks living in a Gurdwara, learnt about the way the Sikhs live, walk, talk, eat, their tenets and beliefs. For me, a character, a role is an opportunity to get to expand the bandwidth of my personality, to get to know other people, cultures and communities.”

Now, Uri: The Surgical Strike’s Sartaj will play well-known cricketer Ravi Shastri in Kabir Khan‘s ‘83 the film about India’s victory in the 1983 World Cup.

And Dhairya is as charged-up about playing the cricketer as he was about playing the soldier. Says Dhairya, “I have been prepping for my cricketer’s role for some time now. I’ve played cricket in school. But that’s obviously not enough,” says this passionate famished actor who has had no formal training. “I was preparing for a MBA degree when the acting bug hit me. So I kept the MBA on hold and moved to Mumbai to pursue my dream.I only did a 10-day acting workshop when I first moved to Mumbai in 2016. After that, I am completely self-trained, auditioning, recording my own videos , learning on my own.”

Dhairya would soon be meeting Ravi Shastri. “It is the logical and right thing to do. I hope he approves of the actor who’s playing him.”

Let your child ‘go green’

London: Children who grow up with greener surroundings have up to 55 per cent less risk of developing various mental disorders later in life, according to a study which emphasised the need for designing green and healthy cities for the future. An increasing share of the world’s population now lives in cities and World Health Organisation estimates that more than 450 millions of the global human population suffer from a mental disorder.

Based on satellite data from 1985 to 2013, researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark have mapped the presence of green space around the childhood homes of almost one million Danes and compared this data with the risk of developing one of 16 different mental disorders later in life.

The study, published in the Journal PNAS, shows that children surrounded by the high amounts of green space in childhood have up to a 55 per cent lower risk of developing a mental disorder. “With our dataset, we show that the risk of developing a mental disorder decreases incrementally the longer you have been surrounded by green space from birth and up to the age of 10. Green space throughout childhood is therefore extremely important,” Kristine Engemann from Aarhus University.

As the researchers adjusted for other known risk factors of developing a mental disorder, they see their findings as a robust indication of a close relationship between green space, urban life, and mental disorders. “There is increasing evidence that the natural environment plays a larger role for mental health than previously thought. Our study is important in giving us a better understanding of its importance across the broader population,” said Engemann.

This knowledge has important implications for sustainable urban planning. Not least because a larger and larger proportion of the world’s population lives in cities. “The coupling between mental health and access to green space in your local area is something that should be considered even more in urban planning to ensure greener and healthier cities and improve mental health of urban residents in the future,” said Jens-Christian Svenning from Aarhus University.

United States: Indian student charged for destroying over 50 computers of New York college

New York: An Indian student has been arrested after being charged with intentionally causing damage to over 50 protected computers owned by a college in New York state capital Albany, officials said on Wednesday. Vishwanath Akuthota, 26 was arrested on February 22 in North Carolina after being charged with intentionally causing damage to protected computers owned by The College of Saint Rose in Albany, US Attorney Grant Jaquith said.

According to a criminal complaint, on February 14, Akuthota entered numerous locations around the Saint Rose campus and inserted a device into more than 50 computers used by students. The device, which resembles a normal USB memory stick, sends a rapid series of power surges into a computer’s electrical hardware, rendering it inoperable. The damage exceeds USD 50,000.

Akuthota, an Indian citizen, is residing in the US on a student visa. He appeared in the federal court in Raleigh, North Carolina, where a US Magistrate Judge ordered him detained and transported to the Northern District of New York. The charge filed against Akuthota carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of up to USD 250,000, and a term of supervised release of up to three years.

In show of support for India, Mike Pompeo calls JeM base bombing ‘counter-terrorism actions’

New York: In a sign that the US backs India’s tough action in bombing a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) base in Pakistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has described it as “counter-terrorism actions” and emphasised the “close security partnership” between the two countries.

In a statement issued on Tuesday night, Pompeo said: “Following Indian counter-terrorism actions on February 26, I spoke with Indian Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj to emphasise our close security partnership and shared goal of maintaining peace and security in the region.” However, Pompeo also said that he told the Foreign Ministers to “avoid further military activity”.

Pompeo calling Tuesday’s attack by the Indian Air Force (IAF) in Balakot “counter-terrorism actions” is a diplomatic blowback from terrorism for Pakistan that openly harbours terrorist organisations.  On February 22, President Donald Trump told reporters in Washington that he “understood” why New Delhi was seeking a strong response to the suicide bombing of a Central Reserve Police Force convoy in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, on February 14.

Also Read: Sushma Swaraj raises Pulwama attack at RIC meet, says instead of taking serious action Pakistan dismissed JeM claims

New Delhi is “looking for something strong” and because India has lost almost 50 people in the Pulwama attack, “I can understand that also”, he said. Pompeo, who is visiting Hanoi for the US-North Korea summit, said that he spoke to Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi about “the urgency of Pakistan taking meaningful action against terrorist groups operating on its soil”. He added that he also underscored the “priority of de-escalating current tensions by avoiding military action”.

“I expressed to both Ministers that we encourage India and Pakistan to exercise restraint, and avoid escalation at any cost. I also encouraged both Ministers to prioritise direct communication and avoid further military activity,” Pompeo said. In the Pakistani version of the call, Qureshi had told Pompeo “that Indian aggression was worthy of condemnation and hoped that the United States would play its role in the situation”, according to Dawn newspaper.

But instead he got a warning against terrorist groups like JeM operating on its soil and, later, a statement calling India’s raid on JeM base “counter-terrorism actions”. According to Indian officials, in her conversation with Pompeo, Sushma Swaraj told him that the air raid was targeted solely at the JeM base and explained the background and the rationale for the attack. IAF Mirage 2000 fighter jets backed by an Emb 145 struck the JeM base Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 195 km from Islamabad and over 40 km from Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistani-administered Kashmir, early Tuesday morning.

Infamous ‘Momo Challenge’ sliding into kid shows on YouTube: Report

San Francisco: The infamous “Momo Challenge”, which usually culminates with self-harm or suicide of the player, is reportedly hacking into children’s programmes on Google-owned video sharing platform YouTube. Videos of popular kid shows like Peppa Pig on YouTube have been showing the creepy “Momo Challenge” character girl popping up in the middle of the episodes asking children to hurt others and themselves, Manchester Evening News reported on Tuesday.

Screenshots of YouTube videos invaded by the game all of a sudden are going viral on social networking platforms including Facebook, escalating both awareness as well as concerns. A form of cyber bullying that spreads through social media and smartphones, the “Momo Challenge” much like the “Blue Whale Challenge” entices users to contact a user named “Momo” after which they receive graphic threats from the questionable account and are instructed to perform a series of dangerous tasks.

The report comes just days after YouTube was accused of not being careful with exposing minors to objectionable content on its platform. The app faced backlash from users as well as advertisers, leading to several major companies like Nestle deciding to pull out their commercials from the video app.

The “Momo Challenge” noticeably started circulating around the web globally in 2018. Earlier in 2018, the “Blue Whale” challenge was alleged to be the reason many youngsters globally attempted to or succeeded at committing self-harm and even suicide.

Several Indian states like Odisha and West Bengal had issued advisories on the self-harming game, alerting parents and educational authorities. In August 2018, the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) board requested parents to keep a close eye on their children who were vulnerable of falling prey to the online suicidal game.

Indian Air Force shoots down Pakistan’s F-16 jet: Report

Indore: When It Strikes a Chord With Hearts

Acting with precision, Indian Air Force eliminated Jaish-e-Mohammed’s biggest training camp in early Tuesday killing up to 350 terrorists and trainers who were relocated near Balakot in Pakistan for protection after Pulwama attack in which 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed on February 14. Free Press brings you celebrations, versions of common men and war veterans on the occasion

Three retired colonels Umrao Singh Chouhan, BD Vatts and DC Goyal who talked to FP in Bhopal commended Indian Air Force strike in Balakot. Excerpts of their versions

Indian defence force training is one of the best in the world. India should raise issue of Baluchistan, which wants to merge with India but Pakistan is suppressing their demand. India should also raise issue against China who had captured some parts of Himachal Pradesh and Tibet. We have left the work incomplete. We have to find out permanent solution: Colonel Goyal

I don’t agree that we have taken revenge from Pakistan. We have started it. According to Indian mythology, 13th day or ‘Tehrvi’ is done of dead person. Modiji had taken revenge before 13th day of terror attack. With this strike, the country had come out of tag of defensive state to offensive state: Colonel Vatts

February 26 is historic day. We had war with Pakistan in 1948, 1971 and also Kargil war. In these wars, Indian political leaders failed to take decisions. In 1971, India captured 94,000 war prisoners for one year. But we failed to negotiate the issue of POK. Similarly, during Kargil war, IAF was not permitted to cross Line of Control. But for first time, IAF crossed the LoC: Colonel Chouhan

Aaj ki karvayi ke baare mein jankar kuch achcha toh laga hai, par abhi karvayi kum hai, aur jyada honi chahiye (some action has taken place, but it’s too less and more action is needed): Sukaru Kachchi, father of 30-year-old CRPF jawan Ashwini Kachhi who was martyred in February 14 Pulwama terror attack.

This has shown to the world that IAF just like our special forces have the expertise and power to eliminate the enemy in its den. The free hand given to our armed forces should continue: Ashwini Kachhi’s brother Sumatlal

It is a very proud moment

Nupur Silawat, home maker: “This is a very proud moment for our country. Indian Air Force very well answered to the cowardly act of JeM in Pulwama. Army and country men should be well- prepared for a counter attack by Pakistan.”

Shad Khan, fitness expert:“First time since 1971 war, IAF was used in Pakistan-controlled airspace. This action shows confidence of Indian government and boldly leaves a message that we won’t tolerate terrorist activities inside and outside our territory.”

Sandeep Manwani, businessman: “JeM chief’s Masood Azhar’s brother in-law Maulana Yusuf Azhar who was involved in Indian Airlines flight hijack in 1999 was also killed in the strike, according to reports coming in. This is a big success for India. Their deaths are a blow on terrorist organisations.”

Akanksha Sodani, working professional: “This attack is bigger than 2016 surgical strike. Killing a terrorist today saves many innocent lives tomorrow. I salute Indian Air Force for making this possible. Terrorists groups should take a hint and step back before planning anything against India because this generation won’t stay quiet.”

Hamza Sheikh, businessman: “Salute to Indian Air Force for such a bold move. The Indian Air Force entered Pakistan territory and destroyed terrorist camps. A strike against JeM group was very essential.”

Jyoti Jain, homemaker: “Under Narendra Modi government, the military will now be given freedom to choose the right way for dealing with terrorism. The attack on terrorist camps is a very bold move and such actions must be taken in future as well.”

POLITICIANS IN UNISON, HAIL IAF

National BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya praised the Indian Air Force action with the dialogue of legendary Indian film actor late Raj Kumar, “Hum tumhe maarenge, aur zaroor maarenge…lekin woh bandook bhi hamari hogi, goli bhi hamari hogi, waqt bhi hamara hoga par jagah tumhari hogi.” He further said, “Air strike has proved that every Indian has 56-inch chest. As for Modiji, the tape (to measure chest) has fallen short.”

 

It’s a lesson to Pakistan, dekh beta ab ankh mat uthana: Tai                                                    It’s a message for Pakistan, dekh beta ab ankh mat uthana. It’s just a beginning. I was listening to a comment of sister of a martyred and she was saying that now no other sister will have to lose his brother. Modi government has paid true tribute to the martyred jawans. Pawan Putra Hanuman returned after torching Lanka. Our Air Force displayed bravery like Lord Hanuman. Now, India is confident that terrorism will be eliminated.

 

Nobody would have imagined it’ Union labour minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar: Whole country is proud of air strike conducted by India on terror camps in Pakistan, which the common people wouldn’t have imagined. The task carried out by our Air Force could not have been imagined by people.

 

 

 

Any ill against India will meet same fate’ Ex-CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan: The drive to eliminate terrorism has begun. Anybody with ill intention against India will meet the same fate as the Jaish terrorists.

 

 

Congratulations IAF: CM Nath                                                                                                      Kamal Nath tweeted: I congratulate brave soldiers of Indian Air Force for the massive strike on terrorists’ camp. My party and I are always with you for every move initiated in the country’s interest,”

 

 

Modi knows how to deal with googly and swings: Prasad                                                        Ravi shankar prasad: Cricketer-turn-Pakistan PM Imran Khan thinks that politics and cricket are same. Like cricket, he sometimes throws googly (Kartarpur corridor) and sometimes swing (terror strikes). But he should remember that Modi knows how to deal with these deliveries. IAF aircrafts entered PoK and returned safe. In previous air strike also, all our soldiers returned safe. The two strikes reveal India’s capability.”

Facebook’s ‘Clear History’ feature scheduled to release later this year

Barcelona: Facebooks long-awaited privacy tool — “Clear History”, which would let users erase their information collected by Facebook from third-party apps and websites, is now scheduled to come out later this year. The information was announced by David Wehner, Facebook’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom Conference being held in Barcelona, the media reported.

“Broadly, (clear history is) going to give us some headwinds in terms of being able to target as effectively as before,” CNBC quoted Wehner as saying on Tuesday.  The “Clear History” feature was first announced in May 2018 and was described as “a simple control to clear your browsing history on Facebook — what you’ve clicked on, websites you’ve visited, and so on”, by CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

However, Wehner is concerned that the feature would impact Facebook’s ability to target ads to audiences since the social networking giant collects data based on the user’s location and preferance history. “We want to make sure this works the way it should for everyone on Facebook, which is taking longer than expected,” BuzzFeed News quoted Facebook as saying last week.

The testing of the tool is being planned to begin somewhere between March and May. Clear History” was proposed by Zuckerberg in reaction to the company’s Cambridge Analytica scandal last March and was announced publicly when it just an idea, the media reported.

Working for long hours linked to heightened depression risk in women

Washington D.C.: Working for over 55 hours a week is linked to heightened depression in women, suggests an observational study published online in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health. Furthermore, the study found that working during weekends is associated with an increased risk in both sexes.

Recent times have seen the need to work outside standard ‘office’ hours–a factor that has been associated with poorer physical health. However, the potential impact on mental health is less well known. To elucidate further on this point, the researchers drew on data from Understanding Society, the UK Household Longitudinal Study (UKHLS).

Depressive symptoms were measured using a validated general health questionnaire (GHQ-12). Using the standard working week of 35 to 40 hours as a reference, working weeks were categorised as fewer than 35 to include part-time employees; 41-55 (long working hours); and 55 and above (extra long working hours).

The researchers factored in several potentially influential contributors: age; marital status; parenthood; earnings and satisfaction with them; long term health conditions; job type and satisfaction with it; degree of control; and qualifications.
Generally, older workers, smokers, and those who earned the least and who had the least job control were more depressed. And this applied to both sexes.

However, gender differences in working patterns were evident. Men tended to work longer hours than women, with almost half clocking up more than the standard quota compared with fewer than one in four women. And nearly half of the women worked part time compared with just one in seven (15 per cent) men.

Married women who were also parents tended not to work longer hours, but the opposite was true of married fathers and over two thirds of men worked weekends compared with around half the women. There was no difference in the number of depressive symptoms between men who put in fewer or more hours than the standard working week, or who worked weekends.

However, weekend working was associated with significantly more depressive symptoms among men when work conditions were accounted for; among women, depressive symptoms were associated with the number of weekends worked.Furthermore, women who worked 55 or more hours a week and/or who worked most/every weekend had the worst mental health of all, with significantly more depressive symptoms than women working standard hours.

“Such jobs, when combined with frequent or complex interactions with the public or clients, have been linked to higher levels of depression,” they wrote, suggesting, Our findings of more depressive symptoms among women working extra long hours might also be explained by the potential double burden experienced by women when their long hours in paid work are added on their time in domestic labour.

?Previous studies have found that once unpaid housework and caring is accounted for, women work longer than men, on average, and that this has been linked to poorer physical health,” they added.

The researchers concluded, “Our findings should encourage employers and policy makers to consider interventions aimed at reducing women’s burdens without restricting their full participation in the workforce, and at improving psychosocial work conditions.

Bihar police find 7th missing girl and prime witness of Muzaffarpur shelter home case

Patna: After finding six missing girls, the police successfully also found the seventh girl, who is one of the prime witnesses in the infamous Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case from Madhubani on Tuesday night. “After sincere efforts by the SIT constituted to investigate the Mokama Shelter Home case, the seventh girl was recovered last night (26-27/2/19) from Madhubani,” said police in its press statement.

“It is to be noted that circumstances of the girl’s escape are yet to be fully established. It is early to say if girls escaped on their own or received outside help,” the police added. “No evidence about the involvement of the NGO Nazareth Academy has surfaced so far. The SIT will soon complete the investigation and come out with all details,” it further stated.

Six of the minor girls were found in Gangauli village under the Sakatpur police station area on February 24. Seven girls, including five, who were abused at the Muzaffarpur shelter home last year, escaped from the Mokama shelter home on Friday night.

It is worth mentioning that five girls were shifted to Nazareth Hospital Society from Seva Sankalp Evam Vikas Samiti, Muzaffarpur, in August last year after their ordeal of sexual abuse was highlighted in the audit report of Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).

More than 40 minor girls were allegedly sexually assaulted over a period of time in the shelter home which was run by Brijesh Thakur’s state-funded non-governmental organisation (NGO). Subsequently, the NGO was blacklisted and the girls were shifted to other shelter homes in Patna and Madhubani.
