China s actions are hard to decipher, especially in the absence of any authoritative statements from Beijing, said Taylor Fravel, Professor of International Relations at MIT and author of two major books on China s territorial disputes and its military strategy.

Seattle, WA Microsoft Build, May 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Gremlin, the company on a mission to help build a more reliable internet, today announced it will become the first hosted solution for running Chaos Engineering experiments on Microsoft Windows. Customers have already widely utilized Gremlin to inject failures across various architectures including Linux, Docker, Kubernetes and serverless functions, both on bare metal and on all major cloud platforms.

There have been jokes cracked by comedians which have led to sensitization towards issues that often come with prejudices. Like the one cracked by Vir Das himself about homosexuality, Section 377 was defeated. We decriminalized homosexuality in this country. That s an amazing thing. Because Indian uncles were holding on to that one for some time, If we legalize it, they will come for us next. They re gays, not zombies. They don t have to spread. If a gay dude bites you, you don t become fabulous overnight. While others like Trevor Noah and Lilly Singh went a little overboard and turned an entire joke into a racist remark. In the very first episode of her late night talk show, A Little Late With Lilly Singh featured actor Jessica Alba. The actor was discussing an event, They wear the towels, the turbie twists, so they like look super not cool in the turbie twists but it dries their hair really quickly, so it s very practical. To this Lilly Singh replied, They look like my Punjabi friends. It s fine. After receiving a lot of backlash on social media for passing racist remarks in the name of jokes, both Trevor Noah and Lilly Singh apologized for their comments. Cracking a joke offensive to a certain community, realizing how problematic and hurtful it could be and then apologizing for it, is still better than not accepting your mistake at all and sprouting your entire career based on offensive remarks.While we re talking about offensive humor, let us also not forget comedian Kapil Sharma s extensive contribution to it. His shows, Comedy Nights with Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show lost its humor even before it started gaining popularity. In the language of his shows, to joke is to verbally bash colleagues and audiences on the basis of their body features. Whenever Sumona Chakravarti comes to the screen, her nose, her lips, and her height are made fun of. In one of the episodes featuring Tapsee Pannu and Manoj Bajpai, Sumona tells Kapil that she is here to promote the actors latest film to which Kapil replies that she should compare her height with Tapsee s and promote short films. Another time he made a similar remark on her lips saying, Lips toh tumhaare haan, bade ache hain, jitna bada gala diya hai bhagwaan ne, utne bade hain. Lip sync karegi lips aapas mein sync kar nahi rahe. These remarks are not only not funny but are offensive, they are only based on somebody s physical features. Remarks on Kiku Sharda s weight have also been made on the show. Na duniya ka koi kona hai, na tere shareer ka koi kona hai , is what the show sells in the name of comedy. Similar offensive remarks are also made on Archana Puran Singh s body and even the audience is not spared in the show
