    Babul Supriyo, said, " At the time of release of film 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' promises were made saying that Pak artists would not be given work in India,that promise is not being kept. I think time has come when we should take a stand, Pak artists should not get work opportunities in Bollywood.""I feel Bollywood should stand up for our soldiers. It is not a political stand, it's an Indian stand. It's my individual opinion, not that of the government, said Supriyo.

  • Babies get strokes too. Here's how their brains recover - Science Magazine

    AUSTIN Strokes are common in old age, but these devastating events also strike babies. That s likely because birth is stressful and particularly hard on the body s blood vessels and circulation. But unlike adults, babies who suffer a stroke in the area of the brain that deals with language retain the ability to communicate. In new work presented here yesterday at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which publishes Science, researchers found that as teenagers, individuals who experienced strokes around the time of birth are able to understand language as well as their healthy siblings. To find out how adults who had strokes as infants compensated for such severe brain damage, the team imaged their brains while they listened to sentences read forward and backward. In healthy adults, the test causes language processing areas on the left side of the brain to light up with activity (pictured above on the left). In the stroke survivors, who had lost brain tissue in this region, the activity had shifted to an area in the right hemisphere that s the mirror image of the normal language region (above, right). This right hemisphere region is almost never used for understanding language in healthy people, and adults who have had a stroke do not enlist it for speech processing. The researchers suspect that the infants benefit from a unique time window during development, when the brain is flexible enough to make these accommodations. Figuring out what allows for that elasticity may one day help adult stroke survivors regain the ability to speak and understand language, the researchers say. nbsp;

  • Ekta Kapoor says Bollywood has its Harvey Weinsteins, claims actors use their sexuality to get ... - Daily News & Analysis

    Ekta, who was present along with actress Nimrat Kaur on a news channel #39;s show The Town Hall, was asked if a Harvey Weinstein exists in Bollywood, and if the #MeToo campaign has helped women come out with their story in the Indian television and film industry.Speaking on the issue, Ekta said, quot;Well, I think there are Harvey Weinsteins in Bollywood, but there is probably an equal number of Harvey Weinsteins on the other side of the story, but people do not want to talk about that part. Yes, there are people in power like producers who use their power to take advantage of people, but at the same time there are people on the other side, like an actor or others who need the job, would also use their sexuality to get things done.

  • Get Ready To Spend Even More Time Watching WWE Pay-Per-Views - UPROXX

    A couple of years ago, WWE started elongating its major pay per views. It started by making WrestleMania a four hour event, and then a six hour event including the pre show. When WrestleMania 34 finally rolls around, it will probably end up clocking in close to last year;s eight hour plus event. WWE has also beefed up its other #8220;major #8221; events in the past two years, with Royal Rumble, SumerSlam and even Survivor Series getting the six hour treatment. That may be too long. It #8217;s probably too long. But there #8217;s no sign of it ending.

  • The Clock's Ticking on Climate Change, and It's Time to Get Real About Tackling It - Singularity Hub

    This same game of feverish calculation and recalculation is the game we re playing with the Earth s climate. The Paris Climate Accord, which is still technically in force across the globe, is a commitment to keep warming to below two degrees Celsius. It doesn t sound like much, but for the global average temperature, however, two degrees Celsius of warming takes us outside the realms at which human civilizations have existed. Four degrees, which could be the total warming by the end of the century, is the difference between an ice age and the moderate climate we ve been enjoying. But that level of warming, even during the dramatic emergence from an ice age, usually takes place over thousands of years; we d do it in a century.You can find a range of perspectives and definitions for this two degrees Celsius climate goal. There are all kinds of complexities, including how to deal with feedbacks in the climate system, how to define pre industrial temperatures, and so on. Essentially, we know warming depends on the total CO2 concentration in the atmosphere: if you want it to stop, you have to cut emissions to zero. But emissions are still rising. Every year we wait for turnaround makes the cuts we have to engage in more and more drastic. Some scenarios argue that, for avoiding 2C of warming to become likely, emissions need to be halved in the next 20 years.
