Have friends in opposition, Mamata didi sends me gifts, PM Modi tells Akshay Kumar Rajasthan: Having come from behind in Assembly polls, BJP may now buck 20 year trend ND Tiwari #039;s son murder case: Crime Branch arrests Rohit Shekar #039;s wife Apoorva Shukla Dipa Chaudhuri and Puneet Gupta Five years to acquire the rights for the Hindi versions, 24 hours to find the people who will translate it from French to Hindi, and another four years to get the first four albums out. You can get a fair idea of what we were attempting, says Dipa Chaudhuri, Editor in Chief, Om Books International, one of the two member team who have worked to get a Hindi version of the famed Asterix comics. The other part of the duo is Puneet Gupta, who has earlier translated Tintin to Hindi. We caught up with the duo at the residence of French Ambassador to India, Alexandre Zigler, where the comics were launched recently.The shenanigans of Asterix and his friend Obelix in their coastal village of Gaul, have shaped the popular culture of France and beyond. Created by Rene Goscinny and Albert Urdezo in 1959, the series has been translated in about 111 languages. Gaulwasi Asterix, Sone Ki Darati, Asterix Aur Gothwasi and Asterix Talwarbaaz are the four respective titles, priced at Rs 295 each, published by Om Books. One needed to be completely immersed in the over arching narrative of the series, and not simply translating it one album at a time. Something that happened to a particular character in the first one might resurface in the 17th one; one had to be a fan. And since they are the most widely read comics in the world, we couldn t be trivial, says Gupta.
French comics Ast rix is one of the best selling comic book series in the world. It has been published in 111 languages and dialects until now, selling over 375 million copies worldwide. On 27 March, the first four albums of the Ast rix series were launched for the first time in a Hindi translation. Ast rix in Hindi was jointly released by the Ambassador of France to India, Alexandre Ziegler, and publisher Ajay Mago, at an event in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi.The albums have been translated by Dipa Chaudhuri, Chief Editor, Om Books International, and Puneet Gupta, an advertising professional who writes science fiction novels, short stories and humorous poetry.
Andrew Lincoln is having second thoughts about his decision to exit The Walking Dead at the time that he did.It s been months since the lead actor bid farewell to the show as Rick Grimes, but now his former co star Norman Reedus who plays Daryl Dixon has let the cat out the bag when it comes to Andrew s regrets.

Certainly much better than the previous Negan clogged seasons. Even Andrew Lincoln, who departed the show in episode five, is bummed that he left.In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Norman Reedus said that during a phone chat, Lincoln told him, "I picked the wrong time to leave the show because it s so f cking good right now. " His response: "Yeah, you did, dude. You picked the wrong time. " (What else do you suppose they talked about? Probably hats. Hat chat between bros.) Reedus also discussed the season finale, which he called "nothing like you ve ever seen on The Walking Dead before. It s completely different ... It s a different look, 1000%, in the end. It s a huge, visually explosive episode that s going to be visually stunning.

Scientists are hoping to use space drones in lunar and Martian caves. Researchers have started testing the drone technology to be used for possible explorations. Using a LiDAR equipped drone, a team at SETI successfully mapped in 3D the interior of the Lofthellir Lava Tube Ice Cave which is an ice rich lava tube. The lava tube presented an opportunity for scientists to explore and test the technology in a possibly similar environment as the caves on the Moon and Mars.The drone used sent out light waves and tracked reflections, so it can map out the areas that are challenging for humans to penetrate. According to Andrew Horchler, Director of Future Missions and Technology at Astrobotic, small and free flying spacecraft could be the ideal thing to use when exploring lava tubes on Earth, the Moon and Mars. This type of spacecraft can avoid direct contact with potentially unstable and rough surfaces inside the lava tubes and caves. Astrobotic is a private space company working on the drone mapping technology, LiDAR.
CHINA S PRESIDENT, Xi Jinping, was due to land in Rome on March 21st, as The Economist went to press. His itinerary will include a state dinner, accompanied by a performance by Andrea Bocelli, an Italian opera star. Even more enjoyable for Mr Xi will be welcoming Italy into his Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a programme of infrastructure projects that spans Eurasia, the Middle East and Africa. Italy s prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, hopes the planned agreement, due to be signed on March 23rd, will boost Italian exports to China. But the accord has caused consternation both within his government and among Italy s traditional allies.The BRI is China s project to create a modern day Silk Road, the ancient network of trade routes which once connected east and west. Billions of dollars have been invested since it was launched in 2013 across over 60 countries, in disparate infrastructure projects including railways, roads and ports. Some estimates of the total investment over the coming years run to $1trn or even more.
This is a short version of the famous video of the Angry German Kid. It was made by Andreas Leopold aka Andreas Slikk. I cut it down to 35 seconds - watching him screaming for more than four minutes is a little bit too much - and gave it a happy ending by editing a scene. And yes, it is a comedy, he is just playing it. Millions of people owe this boy because of his idea and performance, many of them asking themselves if he is being serious. Thank you for the entertaiment, Andreas! Well done! By the way, here comes the translation, or as Slikk would say, here we go: Come on! I want to play Unreal Tournament! Go! Start the fukcing game! Start the game, you motherfukcer, I want to play! Yeah, quick start! Uaaargh! Here we go! Here we go! Here we go! Here we go! Here we go!

Well, it's official: The latest episode of The Walking Dead proves that the series is downright terrifying again. The season nine episode "Bounty" featured a roughly minute-and-a-half-long sequence that's one of the most heart-stopping Walking Dead scenes ever. Major TWD spoilers ahead, so consider yourself warned. In 2018, longtime The Walking Dead actor Andrew Lincoln announced he'd be stepping away from his post as Rick Grimes, leaving co-star Norman Reedus to ride his character Daryl Dixon into "Main Man" territory. Many fans of the post-apocalyptic zombie drama worried the show wouldn't be as exciting without Rick. What would The Walking Dead become? The most recent episode answers that question for all of us: The Walking Dead would become absolutely horrifying. On Sunday, February 24th, The Walking Dead aired the eleventh episode of its ninth season on AMC, and many viewers hailed one particular sequence as one of the most genuinely scary moments The Walking Dead has produced in years. It all starts with Alpha, the leader of The Whisperers cult, portrayed by Samantha Morton. At the start of the scene, outside of the Hilltop settlement, her cronies are holding two men hostage at knifepoint: Alden and Luke, portrayed by Callan McAuliffe and Dan Fogler. Alpha wants to trade these hostages for her daughter, who's inside of Hilltop. Shortly thereafter, Alpha instructs the distraught Whisperer Mother to let the zombies eat her child: And to think we haven't even gotten to the really scary part yet. Enter Connie, a Hilltop resident trapped outside of the gates, who sprints through the surrounding cornfield and rescues the childâ€¦ or does she? The real horror begins when the sound cuts out, cleverly mirroring Connie's deafness. As Connie soldiers on, we, the absolutely terrified viewers, are put in her shoes and can't see or hear what's around her. And just as the undead creeps are within inches of Connie, Daryl and some other survivors manage to rescue her. The scene lasts just over a minute, but it's undoubtedly one of the smartest and scariest sequences The Walking Dead has ever produced. It's a powerful testament to how horrifying the show can be when it gets creative. Hopefully, The Walking Dead will continue delivering totally demented sequences throughout season nine and into season ten, which AMC ordered in early February. With the long-running series suffering a diminishing viewer base in recent years, not to mention a sharp drop in ratings, showrunners would be wise to find new ways to ratchet up the suspense. Who knows? Maybe former fans will give The Walking Dead another go. Could the show be on the verge of a resurgence? We're sure AMC would just love that. If you're not caught up on TWD s9, do we even need to say it? Well, just to be save, major The Walking Dead Season 9 spoilers ahead. Fans can find out what new dangers await the survivors when The Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday, March 3 at 9 PM Eastern Time. In the meantime, we can continue savoring this one terrifying scene, forever and ever and ever. #TheWalkingDead #TWD #WalkingDead #WalkingDeadS9

The sensational conspiracy, dubbed ;Operation Varsity Blues; by the FBI, is the largest college admissions scheme the Department of Justice has ever prosecuted, U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said when he announced the charges in a press conference. Sports coaches and professionals from multiple universities were indicted, along with SAT and ACT examination administrators and employees from a college counseling and preparation business. Thirty three parents, including Loughlin and Huffman, were charged in the scheme, which prosecutors say ran from 2011 until 2019.At the forefront of the investigation is defendant William Singer, the owner of The Edge College amp; Career Network (also called The Key), a for profit college preparation and counseling program, and CEO of Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF), the company 's 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Singer, who allegedly made $25 million from parents since 2011, has pleaded guilty to racketeering, money laundering, fraud and obstruction of justice charges.
