Watan Pe Musalat a nice Trana about Bad Politicians of Pakistan

Watan Pe Musalat a nice Trana about Bad Politicians of Pakistan.

Hindu Extremists Group Shiv Sena doing dirty Politics again

Hindu Extremist Group Shiv Sena is again Showing it hatred even for very Secular Muslims Like Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan and trying to bright their dirty Politics. From Last three these this Hindu Extremist Group Shiv Sena is targeting Actor Shahrukh Khan just for saying that it was wrong not to Include Pakistan Players in IPL today they even Called Shahrukh as traitor. another Actor Aamir Khan is also targeted for Shiv Sena for the same reason. Shiv Sena also called thes two Muslim actors as 2 Idiots.

Now My Question to Bal Thakray to whom i usually call Bala Badmash. So Bala Badmash why you not spoken against your own friend Amitabh Bachan also for saying the same in an interview that Pakistani players must be included in IPL. is the reason that he is hindu and your friend? Now we talk about the past of this Hindu Extremists Group Shiv Sena. This is the same group which played a major role in killing of thousands of Muslims in Gujrat riots and killings of Muslims in Mumbai. this group has also done hundreds of attacks on churches of Christians. India which calls itself a Secular country must take care of such groups first that are alive examples of Extremism and terrorism.

Americans want to run from Afghanistan with help of $500 Million

For last 9 years after 9/11 Americans and Nato tried everything to defeated the Afghan Taliban and other freedom fighters with weapons with money by creating disputed between them they tried everything but today After 9 years they are accepting the defeat and history is repeating itself in Afghanistan what happened with British and Russia now with Americans.

Governor of most Afghan provinces follows orders of Afghan Taliban and Western world is now talking about dialogues and going from Afghanistan. Americans are offering $500 Millions for their safe Exit from Afghanistan. Americans and Nato has realized now that they have no other option but to leave Afghanistan as soon as possible but they want it with some dignity intact this is why they are trying to Buy Taliban. in short its a try to save Karzai government with $500 Million. it really looks like a joke to me. Afghan Taliban are not fighting for $500. they will continue to struggle even if $5000000 million is offered to them. today Afghan people are standing with them. So the conclusion is Karzai government cannot be saved.

Happy Birthday to U

The progress in telecom Sector of Pakistan started a new journey with the dawn of new millennium but to me the year which really brought a start was 2001. At that time there were 3 cellular services providers networks were working in Pakistan, by the end of first month of the new 2001 another cellular company came into the scene, I think I should better say a new company was launched- - before the launch the company was already in the news the reason was the logo of the company (old one-- in the picture) which was chosen by the potential customers of the company in a poll and the other reason was the interesting TV advertisement of this company.
From the day one it was my favorite cellular brand though I did not have a cell phone those days, but I like the step they took by offering free incoming call first time in Pakistan in Cellular services. I am talking about Ufone, my favorite cellular brand. It was first to launch the GPRS services and Multi-media Messaging Service (MMS) and prepaid roaming in Pakistan. Ufone has maintained itself as the 2nd largest cellular operator in Pakistan with a subscriber base of around 20 million out of 76 million total users in Pakistan and a market share of nearly 25%. Ufone has seen a subscriber growth rate of over 200% in the last year, and since the start of 2005 Ufone added nearly 5 million subscribers onto its network. Ufone also Nominated as Best Brand of The Year at The Telecoms World Awards Middle East
Ufone is a brand of PTML (Pakistan Telecommunication Mobile Limited) which is the subsidiary of PTCL. The company started its journey in 2001 today celebrating 9th anniversary the second largest cellular service provider of the country which is famous for the interesting and enjoyable advertisements and the most reliable service provider has grown 9 now, and moving to gain more and more success.
Many of you must be thinking that why I am writing about a cellular network, telecom has never been the area which I touched. The answer which I can figure out is the two reasons, one it is the company which was owned and launched by Pakistan's own PTCL and the other reason behind this writeup is that I am not only a user of Ufone but I am also a part of Ufone Team. Since last 15 days, Ufone is my employer and it's a proud to be the part of a company which has always been my Favorite brand. The relationship between me and Ufone which started in 2006 when I got a SIM(though its still regestered in my Father's Name) of Ufone has now turned in a relation ship which is more of a team member than an employer and employee.
That's what I have to say and here is what those people say whose words really matter; Mr. Abdul Aziz President &; CEO Ufone said:
“It is a common belief that it is difficult to smile in these trying circumstances, but we at Ufone, have plenty of reasons to smile and believe that all of Pakistan can find reasons to smile”. He declared that the next year's theme for Ufone will be “Spreading smiles”.

“On the auspicious occasion of the 9th anniversary, we look back at all our achievements with a smile and feel content that it has contributed substantially to the development of thetelecom sector. Only in the last year we have made the largest contribution (42%) in the revenue growth of the telecom industry & have produced excellent results by clocking 2.5 times growth versus industry average”,

In the end I am again lacking in the part which I always feel as my weakness; yes I don't know how to wrap-up this post, therefore I can only wish a success and prosperity to my employer and my favorite cellular bard.

P.S > I want to clarify one thing that when I say that Ufone is my favorite cellular brand I mean it & it has nothing to do with the fact that I work in Ufone.

BlackBerry Storm2 9520 review

Here is another review on Black Berry and i am confessing again that it is not done by me. i found this review here.

RIM are a company with style and simply hopping on the touchscreen bandwagon with another iPhone wannabe just wouldn't suit them. They certainly realized the importance of having a full-touch device in their portfolio but wanted a clear and legible BlackBerry imprint on it.

The BlackBerry Storm 9500 was a truly intriguing device but never really managed to find its place in the new market it was built for. Too bold and unusual for the BlackBerry-loyals and yet too conservative for the rest of the world, it didn't quite get the results it was hoping for. But the successor might use the publicity the first Storm generated for its own good.

Key features

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 2100 MHz 3G with HSPA support
  • 3.25" 65K-color capacitive touchscreen of 360 x 480 pixel resolution
  • Improved touchscreen experience with piezo-electric touch feedback system
  • 3.15 MP autofocus camera, LED flash
  • BlackBerry OS 5
  • Wi-Fi and built-in GPS with BlackBerry maps preloaded
  • 2 GB internal storage and a hot-swappable microSD card slot
  • Landscape on-screen keyboard is as close to hardware keys as we have seen on a touch phone
  • Nice looks and great build quality
  • 3.5mm standard audio jack
  • Accelerometer sensor for screen auto-rotate
  • Bluetooth v2.1 and USB v2.0
  • Document editor
  • Good audio quality
Main Disadvantages
  • No email support without BlackBerry Internet Service account
  • Interface not as quick as competitors'
  • Chubbier than most touchscreen phones with similarly-sized displays
  • Mediocre camera
  • No FM radio
  • No web browser Flash support
  • No dedicated video-call camera

The good news is RIM decided to honor the Storm2 with a few upgrades over the original. However, none of them seems to be absolutely crucial so the greatest responsibility falls on the brand new piezo-electric touchscreen. The missing link between touchscreen and a hardware keypad is what many keen texters must have been waiting for. Or at least that's what RIM believe.

Now, the SurePress screen didn't work out particularly well on the first Storm and a second failure might herald the demise of the entire series. So the BlackBerry Storm2 knows it needs to impress the audience or it might take a spot in history for all the wrong reasons.

U.S. economy likely to grow 4.6 pct

WASHINGTON : The U.S. economy likely grew at its fastest pace in nearly four years in the fourth quarter as businesses made less-aggressive cutbacks on inventories, a government report is expected to show on Friday.

A Reuters survey predicted that gross domestic product, which measures total goods and services output within U.S. borders, expanded at a 4.6 percent annual rate, up from 2.2 percent in the third quarter.

Analysts reckon the change in inventories could constitute as much as three-quarters of the GDP figure and overstate the strength of the recovery from the longest and deepest downturn since the Great Depression 70 years ago.

"We shouldn't dismiss it (GDP number), but the problem is the inventory cycle really doesn't last that long. It's not what we call self-sustaining growth," said Paul Ashworth, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics in Toronto.

Getting the economy on a sustainable growth track remains one of the key challenges facing President Barack Obama, who on Wednesday outlined a raft of measures to create jobs and nurture the recovery.

The pace of inventory liquidation likely slowed in the fourth quarter, and some analysts believe inventories might even have been flat. Business inventories fell $139.2 billion in the July-September period after plunging by a record $160.2 billion in the second quarter.

Thousands march at EU; demand more work

BRUSSELS: Thousands of workers have demonstrated in front of European Union headquarters to demand more work and guarantees for social security.

The march drew at least 20,000. They say that multinationals corporations are firing people to drive up profits and closing factories without much warning.

At the head of Friday's march was a delegation from the Opel factory in Antwerp, which is slated to be closed this year as part of a General Motors Co. plan to cut 8,300 jobs in Europe.

The demonstrators also eyed the world's biggest brewer, Anheuser-Busch InBev SA, which was planning to cut almost 300 jobs in Belgium before union pressure made the company change its mind last week.

Obama accuses GOP of demonizing health overhaul

BALTIMORE – President Barack Obama is accusing Republicans of portraying health care overhaul legislation as a "Bolshevik plot."

Obama told House Republicans that major elements of the bills were based on proposals from former lawmakers in the political middle, including one plan from Republicans Bob Dole and Howard Baker as well as Democrat Tom Daschle.

The president said "that's not a radical bunch, but if you were to listen to the debate ... you'd think this was some Bolshevik plot." He criticized the Republicans for their attacks and said their strategy doesn't give them any room to negotiate.

The 1917 revolution in Russia brought the Bolsheviks to power. Vladimir Lenin and Josef Stalin were among the leaders.

Tourists fly out as Machu Picchu begins isolation

MACHU PICCHU PUEBLO, Peru – The last young backpackers flew away from Machu Picchu as clouds closed in again Friday, leaving Peru to grapple with flood damage that will close its top tourist site for weeks, or even months.

Torrential rains caused mudslides and swelled the Urubamba River on Sunday, stripping away long sections of the railway that is the only transportation in and out of the area around the Inca citadel. The road to the ruins from this village at the end of the train line also washed away.

Thousands of tourists were stranded, hotels overflowed and travelers grew frustrated as weather hampered evacuation helicopters, shopkeepers jumped prices and food and water ran short. Many visitors had to eat from communal pots and bed down in train cars, outdoors or wherever they could find space.

After a helicopter flew out the final group at 5:15 p.m., the streets of this village of 4,000 people were empty and forlorn. Gone were football games, and restaurant owners were turning down stragglers who sought to buy food.

Most villagers were packing up to head back to the nearby city of Cuzco, faced with a shutdown of Machu Picchu that some Peruvian officials said could stretch to two months — a big blow for a local economy dependent on tourism.

"There are no travelers here now and we have nothing to do. Everyone is leaving because there's no work. Without tourism there's no reason to be here," said Jadira Mendez, 29, a maid who had just been laid off at the Pirwa Hostel.

She plans to look for work in Cuzco — the ancient capital of the Inca empire — once helicopters return to ferry out village residents who want to leave.

Cuzco Gov. Hugo Gonzales told The Associated Press that floods and mudslides destroyed 4,689 houses and 39,909 acres of crops and damaged nine bridges in the region.

The roiling Urubamba River, which runs through a narrow gorge past Machu Picchu Pueblo, flowed at its highest rate ever registered — 1,100 cubic meters (30,000 cubic feet) a second, compared to the previous high of 850 cubic meters (23,000 cubic feet) a second, according to rail operator Perurail.

Before the full extent of damage had become clear, Perurail had said only that slides covered the tracks with mud and rock Sunday and train service could resume by Tuesday. The company soon discovered the river stripped away entire sections of rail and the shore below it.

Perurail said in a statement late Thursday that it will take at least eight weeks to complete repairs. The company did not estimate the cost.

Juan Garcia, director of the regional National Culture Institute, which administers the Machu Picchu park, told the AP that the site will stay closed until train service resumes. But he added that officials will consider opening the park to travelers who hike in after the first rail section is repaired in three weeks.

Garcia said the citadel itself was not damaged by rains.

Tourism Minister Martin Perez told the AP that officials had not yet calculated potential losses from the shutdown of the park. In 2008, the most recent year for which figures are available, 858,211 tourists visited the citadel, where foreigners pay $43 just to enter.

Hundreds of hotel reservations have been canceled, according to Peru's National Chamber of Tourism, costing the country some $500,000 a day.

"It's going to be rough, because our hotel targets high-end tourists, not backpackers," said Gustavo De Leon, manager of Machu Picchu's Sanctuary Lodge. Visitors who ride the swank Hiram Bingham train all the way to Machu Picchu Pueblo from Cuzco pay $965 a night at the lodge for a room with a view of the citadel.

Authorities were also forced to close the Inca trail, a popular four-day hiking route that ends in Machu Picchu, a week early after mudslides killed two people Tuesday. The trail is closed in February each year for maintenance during the rainy season.

Bad weather held down rescue flights the first several days, leaving hordes of tourists crowded in the village. But skies cleared Thursday and helicopters began whisking away the stranded travelers in a steady stream, taking the oldest and youngest first.

On Friday, backpackers and other tourists lined up outside the train station before 7 a.m. to board helicopters that descended like clockwork from a clear, sunny sky all morning.

By late afternoon, choppers were racing against darkening skies to complete the task, taking the last foreigner out at 5:15 p.m., said police Col. Santiago Vizcarra, who coordinated the evacuation. Peru flew out 1,460 foreign tourists Friday, bringing the total for the week to 4,005 foreigners and Peruvians.

Sofie Mag, a 19-year-old from Frederiksberg, Denmark, was one of 200 people who hiked down to the village Friday from the Sanctuary Lodge, next to the ruins and a 45-minute bus ride until the road was washed out.

She said a manager had let her and other tourists sleep on the floor of the lodge's restaurant.

"It was free and we got food also," Mag said. "We were very lucky to be up there."

US behind recent Google Drama in China

US is behind recent Google Drama in China where Google threatened China of ending its services in China. In China many websites and keywords searches are blocked while US and Google says that it is against the freedom of speech and Media. Google is doing all this by backing of US. China is blocking different sites and keywords to stop Media propaganda that is spread by US against China. China don,t wants this propaganda to reach Chinese public through internet. in Internet and very large no of people use Internet. Internet is no dout Media of future.

Media is a very powerful thing and can convert white into black and black into white. so China is doing right by blocking specific sites and keywords but US wants China to open these sites and keywords searches and also using Google for this purpose. But Chinese government has cleared that every Internet company is welcome in China but it will have to follow the rules set by the government of China. i also think these are only threats by Google. it cannot leave a very big market like China.

Afghan Taliban rejects London Conference says struggle will continue

Afghan Taliban and another big group fighting in Afghanistan Hizb Islami has rejected the London conference and has said that it is a new game plan of Americans and Nato against Afghan people to divide them. Afghan Taliban said on their official website that our struggle will continue until the occupying forces are in Afghanistan.

Americans and Nato are trying new ways of creating disputes within Taliban by offering them money and offering different packages but Afghan Taliban will not accept these packages and money because they are in a very strong position in Afghanistan they not accepted all this when they where not strong few years back why they will accept now? it is a good thing that some people are also talking about doing Dialogues with Taliban. Pakistan and Saudi Arabia can play a major role in Dialogues. but the result will be same Afghan Taliban just one thing end of Afghanistan occupation by Americans and Nato.

Usefull tip from our prophet (Muhammad S.A.W.W)


Tana Na Do (Do not tease anyone)


Ranbir, Priyanka to meet Sylvester Stallone

MUMBAI: Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor, who are shooting for " Anjaana Anjaani ", are set to meet Rocky-Rambo superstar Sylvester Stallone.

In fact, one of the temptations for them to do Sajid Nadiadwala's " Anjaana Anjaani " was that the producer was a friend of Stallone who featured in his last film " Kambakkht Ishq ".

"Ranbir and Priyanka definitely want to meet him. I'm flying down to Las Vegas to join them on January 27. We'll be meeting Stallone on the 4th or 5th of February," said Nadiadwala.

Earlier, Nadiadwala had taken Saif Ali Khan to meet Stallone in Los Angeles.

Sajid and his son Subhaan were supposed to meet Stallone during the New Year. But the actor injured his neck and the appointment was cancelled. Now a new date is being worked out.

And Priyanka and Ranbir insist on accompanying their producer for the meeting.

"I think Ranbir and Priyanka will kill me if I go without them to see Sly. We'll all be driving down from Las Vegas, where Ranbir and Priyanka are shooting, to Los Angeles to meet Stallone. It's a two-three hour drive," said Sajid.

Ranbir, a big Stallone fan, owns a series of Rocky teeshirts. He intends to get a couple of them signed by the star.

Microsoft fiscal 2Q earns up 60 pct on PC rebound

SEATTLE – Microsoft Corp. said Thursday its earnings in the most recent quarter jumped 60 percent, as a rebound in the personal computer industry drove sales of the company's latest Windows operating system.

But results in Microsoft's other divisions show that while consumers have resumed spending on new PCs, big corporations have not.

Microsoft said the division that makes Office software and other business programs, the company's other cash cow, saw revenue slip 3 percent. Revenue from its typically fast-growing server software group edged up just 2 percent. In both cases, Microsoft blamed the ongoing lull in corporate spending on technology.

The software maker's results match PC analyst reports attributing growth over the holidays to consumer interest in inexpensive laptops and their smaller, less powerful cousin, the netbook. Intel Corp., the top maker of microprocessors for computers, also reported strong sales in consumer segments but ongoing weakness in business PCs.

Microsoft said it expects corporations to start spending on technology this year, but that the increase from the current lows would be gradual.

For the fiscal second quarter, which ended Dec. 31, Microsoft said its net income rose to $6.7 billion, or 74 cents per share, from $4.17 billion, or 47 cents per share, in the same period last year.

That exceeded the 59 cents per share Wall Street was expecting, according to a Thomson Reuters poll.

Revenue increased 14 percent to $19 billion in the year-ago quarter, ahead of analysts' average forecast of $17.8 billion.

In the Windows division, revenue leapt 70 percent and net income nearly doubled to $5.4 billion. The latest version of Windows, called Windows 7, was released in October, but in the months before the launch, Microsoft gave new PC buyers the right to upgrade to Windows 7 later. The second-quarter results included $1.7 billion in deferred revenue for Windows sales made during earlier quarters but not recorded until the launch.

Beyond the boost from deferred revenue, the Windows division did far better than analysts had predicted. One big reason is that more people than expected went out to stores to buy boxed copies of the new operating system to install on older computers.

"I would say it was a great quarter," said Sid Parakh, an analyst for McAdams Wright Ragen.

Microsoft is expected to release a new version of Office this year, which helps explain the lack of growth in the company's business software division. The company also faces increasing competition from Google Inc.'s Web-based word processing, spreadsheet and other software.

Microsoft continues to pour money into its Web search and advertising operations as it attempts to close the gap with market leader Google. The software maker said that division widened its loss in the quarter, hurt by declines in display advertising revenue.

The software maker didn't give revenue or earnings guidance for the current quarter or the full fiscal year.

Even though Redmond-based Microsoft beat Wall Street's forecast, shares edged up just 4 cents to $29.20 in extended trading Thursday after the release of results. Earlier, the stock closed down 51 cents, or 1.7 percent, at $29.16

Shiny gadget, icky name: iPad jokes fly on Web

SAN JOSE, Calif. – You have to wonder whether there were any women in the room when the marketing geniuses at Apple decided to call the company's new gadget the "iPad." Because the jokes about feminine hygiene products are flying.

"Will women send their husbands to the Apple store to buy iPads?" went one joke on Twitter. And a "MadTV" comedy sketch from several years ago about an electronic sanitary napkin called the iPad went viral on YouTube.

So how did the company come up with the product name? And how could Apple have set itself up for such obvious punch lines?

Apple, a company notoriously secret about its product development process, declined to comment about the name or how many women were involved in the launch. Three Apple execs — all men — introduced the iPad at its unveiling in San Francisco.

But brand experts said the name's not so bad.

"It fits with what Apple's been doing consistently. They take literal words that exist and stick an 'i' in front of it. And it works for them. It's not offensive despite the silly jokes," said Tye Heckler, a vice president at Seattle-based Hecker Associates, which is responsible for the store names Cinnabon, Panera and Starbucks.

Ira Kalb, associate director of the Center for Global Innovation at the University of Southern California's business school, said: "Unless you've been under a rock, you know this is an Apple product just by the 'i' in front, and you know what it does by what `pad' connotes."

Kalb said the jokes are probably good for Apple — more buzz — and will eventually pass.

He said other names floated for the product — iTab, iSlate or iTablet — would have been far worse. ITablet has too many syllables. ISlate is too ancient. ITab is too confusing.

"Apple is all about innovation and ease of use. Those names just don't go with that," he said.

According to the Patent and Trademark Office database, more than 20 people or companies have tried to trademark "ipad," "ipads" or "" over the years, for such things as vaccines, stationery, makeup remover, bra padding and a host of electronics.

If the iPad sells, it won't be the first time a company has been mocked for its name, only to have the product fly off the shelves.

Wake up before its too late:

This post is part of a series on the water issue between India and Pakistan, news and updates over the issue will be posted here its the first part of the series which is based on one of the biggest and important problem Pakistan is facing now a days and our so called Political Leaders and mainstream media figures are not ready to talk about.

Wake up before its too late:
After so many days when actually I am feeling my self free to read something or write on some topic some thing serious has got my attention. While looking for some information I came across this link and read this:

In united nation's report, it is warned that environmental increase in temperature will cause the melting of glaciers. That will raise the issue of people migration and shortage of water. In report the most victim countries are Pakistan, India and Bangladesh where glaciers are melting rapidly and these countries are facing the increase in problem of water shortage day by day.

The water issue between India and Pakistan is one of the topic which catches my interest any time I hear about it specially after 2007. for last 3 years almost we are facing an energy crices and some other critical issues like the shortage of wheat and sometime shortage of sugar also appear in the scene time and again, and how can I forget the recent development of our government the cricess of CNG.
When I was in school I used to study that Pakistan is an agricultuaral country but this view of mine was shaterred back in 2005 when I myself experienced the shortage of sugar. An after the wheat crices and another sugar crices I am not ready to accept that this county is an agricultural country. The shortage of food and water has attacked Pakistan on the same time and core reason behind this is the Water theft performed by India time and again. The controversial Baglihar Dam, this project has almost dried the chenab river, control of which was given to Pakistan according to the Indus water treaty signed by both countries in 1960.
Blocking the flow of chenab river has resulted in damaging a great amount of area.
Water flows in Chenab declined by 40 per cent to about 6,000 cusecs on Wednesday from a 10-year average of about 10,000 cusecs, mainly because of construction by India of over a dozen hydropower projects upstream, reduction in rainfall and diversion of river waters.

Pakistan’s Permanent Indus Waters Commissioner Syed Jamaat Ali Shah told Dawn that Chenab river flows on the Pakistani side were recorded at 6,213 cusecs on Wednesday. The last ten-year average flows stood at about 10,000-11,000 cusecs. He said that the flows this year were better only than about 5,000 cusecs recorded in the 2002-03 dry year. He said Pakistan had asked India to proportionately reduce their water use on its side when river water declined abnormally. He said that unusually lower rainfall this year mainly because of El Nino effect had significantly contributed to reduced water flows, apart from reportedly unauthorised water uses and construction of hydropower projects on the Indian side. He said the prevailing weather system indicated another dry year. Mr Shah said Pakistan had also asked India to provide details of its agricultural acreage, crops and other projects to enable it to make plans in advance.

He said India was irrigating about 800,000 acres in Chenab area against 1,345,000 acres permissible under the 1960 Indus Waters Treaty.

Arshad H. Abbasi, a visiting fellow at the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), said that an exponential decline in flows had been observed at Head-Marala in Pakistan because of a reduction in monsoon rainfall in the watershed of Chenab, unauthorised direct water withdrawal by farmers in Jammu with the support of Indian authorities who had especially subsidised electricity for direct pumping in Jammu and Himachal Pradesh and diversion of Ravi-Tavi link canal.

He said that India used to irrigate 642,000 acres from western rivers by Ranbir and Pratap canals when the treaty became effective, but it had built five more canals over the past 10 years to increase the irrigated area. These include Kashmir canal system, high canal system in Jammu, Ravi-Tavi link irrigation system, Igo-phey canal in Leh and Kurbathang canal in Kargil.

Mr Abbasi said that water flows at Head-Marala had declined by almost 50 per cent in 2008-09 when compared with the historic data available since 1922.

He said that India was developing more than a dozen hydropower projects and dams over Chenab to generate 8,696MW of electricity.

The projects, he added, had tremendously decreased the river flow, but the Ministry of Water and Power contested only Baglihar dam and lost the case before the international arbitrator on technical grounds.

Mr Abbasi regretted that Baglihar was a large dam according to International Commission of Large Dam definitions, but its design was not examined on seismic point of view. After the construction, he added, Indian geological experts had pointed out that the dam was built on Murree-Jhelum faulty lines and could cause a catastrophe for downstream areas, including Pakistan, in case of a tremor.

He said a detailed investigation was needed to determine why the authorities concerned in Pakistan had so far failed to protest the construction by India of Dulhasti, Dugar, Gondhala, Reoli/Dugli, Sach-Khas, Tandi, Teling Tinget, Sawalkot, Seli, Raoli and Kirthal hydropower projects.

Mr Abbasi said India was justifying the decline in river flows on the wrong premise of climate change, although India itself was responsible for causing the melting of Himalayan glaciers through unnecessary military presence and massive deforestation in Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh regions and adding to the effects of the climate change.

India not happy with recent developments on Afghanistan

India is not happy with recent developments on Afghanistan. As few days ago a conference was also held in Turkey in which Pakistan talked about ending Indian influence in Afghanistan now India is also sidelined in London conference on Afghanistan Issue. West and US are talking about dialogue with Afghan Taliban, removing their names from terrorists lists and bringing them in the government.

India don,t want Afghan Taliban in the government because Hamid Karzai is a pro Indian and Anti Pakistan person and under him Indians are working on their objectives in Afghanistan to destabilize Pakistan from Afghan border and helping terrorist organizations. India also wants Nato and US to stay in Afghanistan. Afghan Taliban are anti India and they will not allow any Indian to do any Anti Pakistan activity if they came again in government.while at present you can imagine how much India is entering in Afghanistan matters that even the Name of Afghan Intelligence agency Is Rama a hindu word.

Pakistan talks with Turkey for Drones Worries India

Few Days ago US offered Pakistan RQ-7 Shadow Drones which are very slow and small and cannot attack effectively and US is not ready to provide Better drones to Pakistan. After US denies to provide drone technology to Pakistan Pakistan is talking with Turkish army to provide this technology to Pakistan.Turkey is having good Drone technology and also have good defence cooperation with Pakistan.

But Indians are not happy with this development. situation about Afghanistan is already becoming bad for Indians and the news of Pakistan getting Drone technology is worrying them even more. Indians have invested billions for their benefits in Afghanistan and they know well that if Americans and Nato will leave Afghanistan what will happen with them.

Obama to announce high-speed rail plan post-speech

WASHINGTON – A day after delivering a State of the Union address aimed at showing recession-weary Americans he understands their struggles, President Barack Obama intends to award $8 billion in stimulus funds to develop high-speed rail corridors and sell the program as a jobs creator.

Obama and Vice President Joe Biden plan to announce grants for 13 major corridors during a town hall meeting in Tampa, Fla., Thursday, the president's first public appearance following his speech to the nation. It's an attempt by the White House to show that getting Americans back to work is the president's top priority and that he has a plan for how to do it.

The president's visit to the region means Florida's proposal for a high-speed line connecting Orlando and Tampa is likely to receive funding. California's proposal for an 800-mile-long rail line from Sacramento to San Diego and a nine-state proposal in the Midwest are also considered strong contenders.

The $8 billion in funding for high-speed trains and other passenger rail projects is part of the $787 billion recovery act. Besides the 13 corridors receiving grants, a White House official said several smaller awards will be made for improvements to existing rail lines. Overall, 31 states will receive funds.

The official said the projects are expected to create or save tens of thousands of jobs in areas like track-laying, manufacturing, planning and engineering, though there is no time frame for how long it will take for those jobs to develop. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak ahead of the president's announcement.

Though the White House is quick to point out that the economy is no longer on the brink of a depression, as it was when Obama took office, stemming the free fall hasn't translated into job growth. The unemployment rate has hovered near 10 percent for several months, while Obama's approval ratings have dropped.

With that in mind, Obama will spend about two-thirds of his speech on the economy, telling Americans in specific terms that he understands their struggles. He'll reinforce that message in the coming weeks by laying out a number of job creation initiatives, the first of which will be the high-speed rail grant awards to announced Thursday in Tampa. Trips to Maryland and New Hampshire will follow.

In Florida, a swing state Obama carried in the 2008 election, Obama will face a populace where more people disapprove of his performance than approve — 49 percent to 45 percent, according to a new Quinnipiac poll, the first time the numbers there have shifted in that direction since Obama's election.

Even experts who favor high-speed rail question whether the awards Obama will announce Thursday can turn into the job generators the administration is hoping for. Because the U.S. has never had the kind of bullet trains found in Europe and Asia, there are no U.S. engineering companies or manufacturers with experience in high-speed rail. Anthony Perl, who heads the National Research Council's panel on intercity passenger rails, said that means much of the technology will have to be purchased abroad.

At a rail manufacturing conference last year, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said more than 30 foreign and domestic companies have promised to establish or expand operations in the United States if they are chosen to build high-speed lines.

Still, high-speed rail experts say that if the administration spreads the $8 billion among more than a handful of projects, none of the projects will get enough money to get up and running.

"If they want this money to have an impact they are going to have to give a lot to a few states," said lobbyist Tim Gillespie, who represents two large French rail companies.

Dealers swamped by worried Toyota drivers

NEW YORK – Toyota dealers across the country were swamped with calls Wednesday from concerned drivers but had few answers a day after the company announced it would stop selling and building eight models because of faulty gas pedals.

Toyota insisted the problem — sudden, uncontrolled acceleration — was "rare and infrequent" and said dealers should deal with customers "on a case-by-case basis." But drivers of Toyotas and those who share the road with them were left with uncertainty.

In an unprecedented move, the company said late Tuesday it would halt sales for the eight models — which make up more than half of Toyota's U.S. sales volume — to fix the gas pedals. Last week, Toyota issued a recall for the same eight models, affecting 2.3 million vehicles.

A private firm said it had identified 275 crashes and 18 deaths because of sudden, uncontrollable acceleration in Toyotas since 1999.

In North Palm Beach, Fla., Clare Roden showed up at a Toyota dealership worried about the 2010 Camry she purchased recently. She was relieved when she was told her accelerator was not a problem part.

"I didn't want to get out on I-95 because people are not very safe drivers there anyway," Roden said as she waited in the lobby while mechanics checked her car. "I wanted to get it down here as soon as possible."

The dealership owner, Earl Stewart, said about half his cars are affected by the recall, a huge hit to business. He said customers had been flocking in with concerns about the accelerator on all of the models. He sent some home with loaners.

"They're very frightened," he said. "Many people are concerned their accelerator pedal is going to stick and they're going to be involved in an accident."

At Walser Toyota in Bloomington, Minn., owner Doug Sprinthall took calls all day Wednesday from people wanting to know if cars they once thought were dependable were affected by the freeze. He didn't have much to tell them.

"It's hurry up and wait," he said. "We've got a lot of faith in Toyota. They're a good company. These things are not unheard of. ... What's different about this is it's just so many vehicles."

Toyota has said the problem appears to be related to the buildup of condensation on sliding surfaces in the accelerator system that help drivers push down or release the gas pedal. The gas pedal mechanism can wear down, causing the accelerator to become harder to press, slower to spring back or stuck.

Outside safety experts say it could also have to do with the complicated electronic sensors that relay the message from the gas pedal to the engine, the design and location of the sensor system and a lack of an override mechanism.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told WGN Radio in Chicago the government had urged Toyota to stop making the cars while it investigated the problem.

The sales and production halt involves some of Toyota's best-known lines, including the Camry and Corolla sedans and the RAV4 crossover, a blend of an SUV and a car. RAV4's sales surged last month.

In addition, the problem could spread to Europe, where a similar accelerator part is being used, said Toyota spokeswoman Ririko Takeuchi. She declined to give the number of cars affected. The company was studying possible responses there, including a recall.

Toyota had little to say about how common the problem is.

"It's rare," Toyota spokesman Brian Lyons said. "I'd like to say even more than that but right now I'm held to rare, rare and infrequent."

Asked whether the problem was worse for older cars, he said: "There's so many factors involved. That's why we're a little careful with our words here. We are finding it in some lower mileage vehicles depending on the environmental conditions."

Compounding Toyota's problems, the carmaker said late Wednesday it will recall an additional 1.09 million vehicles in the United States due to the risk of floor mats interfering with accelerator pedals. Toyota has already recalled 4.26 million vehicles in the U.S. over the floor mat problems.

Sean Kane, director of Safety Research and Strategies, a consumer group that conducts research into motor vehicle safety issues, said his firm has identified 2,274 incidents of sudden unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles leading to at least 275 crashes and 18 deaths since 1999.

The firm cites as sources the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, direct reports from drivers and incidents mentioned in lawsuits. Toyota would not confirm the numbers.

The supplier of the gas pedals used in the recalled car and trucks, CTS Corp. of Elkhart, Ind., said it knew of only a few cases of drivers having problems with accelerators. It said it's working with Toyota to design a new pedal.

Safety experts said drivers should watch for warning signs, such as when the act of pressing the gas pedal starts to feel rougher or when the pedal does not fully return to its regular position.

"If you don't have that problem, I would probably say it's probably fine to keep driving your Toyota because this really only happens in rare instances," said Rik Paul, automotive editor at Consumer Reports. "If you do experience any roughness in the accelerator pedal, don't drive it any more and take it to your dealership."

Consumer Reports testers found the best thing to do is to hit the brake hard and hold it firmly, then shift into neutral and steer the car off the road. Drivers should not pump the brake, Paul said.

The fallout for Toyota was nearly immediate. The companies that own the Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise and National rental car chains said they were removing all their cars that fell under the recall. Hertz also said it would temporarily stop renting vehicles involved in the recall.

For the company that runs Avis and Budget, that amounts to 20,000 cars. It stressed that Toyotas made up only a small percentage of its fleet.

Competitors were already rushing to take advantage of Toyota's misfortune. General Motors said it planned to offer Toyota drivers deals on its Chevrolet, GMC, Buick and Cadillac cars and trucks. And Toyota will almost certainly face lawsuits.

The recall and sales are another blow to battered automakers, and a bruise for the image of Toyota, which spent decades building its image as a maker of safe, reliable cars and cultivated a fiercely loyal customer base made up largely of baby boomers.

For years, Toyota has dominated big-name quality studies by groups like Consumer Reports and J.D. Power and Associates, and other automakers sought to emulate the company's production methods.

Now some Toyota drivers are worried about repeats of what happened last month to Michael Teston, a physical therapist from Maunelle, Ark. He was driving a 2006 Toyota 4-Runner — a brand not included in the recall — and pulling into a gas station when the car suddenly lunged forward.

"Fortunately, there was a large pole in front of me and it slammed into a pole," he said. "The back wheels were spinning wildly out of control. The back end was bouncing up and down."

Teston said he put the SUV into park, which disengaged the accelerator and caused the back wheel to stop spinning. He said the dealership ran tests on the vehicle but could not find the problem.

Now he is awaiting further direction from Toyota. Because he refused to drive the vehicle back from the dealership, the dealership arranged to send someone to drop the it off at his house, and it is now sitting in his driveway. He said he has filed complaints with the Arkansas attorney general's office and with NHTSA.

"I was not going to drive it because it is a safety hazard," he said. "I think that Toyota should be ashamed of the way they have handled it and they should be held accountable for what they have done."

Asian stock markets slide for a 5th day

BANGKOK: Asian stock markets fell for a fifth day Tuesday as China's lending curbs and slower growth in South Korea added to worries the global recovery will sputter once stimulus spending fades.

Major benchmarks were down about 1.5 percent or more while oil slid below $75 a barrel. The dollar rose against the euro and fell versus the yen.

China's efforts to slow the explosive growth in lending that underwrote its recovery has unnerved investors for more than a week. Unprecedented government spending and record low interest rates around the world have allowed a tentative global recovery to take shape but many worry about a relapse into recession once the stimulus impulse weakens.

More evidence that Asia's economic rebound is losing steam came Tuesday from South Korea, where fourth quarter growth slowed to just 0.2 percent because of weakness in manufacturing, construction and exports.

Linus Yip, a strategist at First Shanghai Securities in Hong Kong, said uncertainty surrounding Chinese government measures to curb bank lending and cool the country's property sector was contributing to the selling in regional markets.

"The whole picture is very unclear at the moment. Increasingly investors don't know what to expect. And when the policy isn't clear, you get a lot of investors trying to cash in," Yip said.

Japan's Nikkei 225 stock average was down 149.61 points, or 1.4 percent, to 10,363.08 and South Korea's Kospi was off 40.89, or 2.5 percent, at 1,629.31.

In Chinese markets, the benchmark Shanghai index dropped 46.93, or 1.5 percent, to 3,047.48 and Hong Kong's Hang Seng slid 329.41, or 1.6 percent, to 20,269.14. Taiwan's index plunged 3.5 percent.

Elsewhere, Singapore's market lost 1.6 percent and Thailand retreated 0.6 percent. Indian and Australian markets were closed for public holidays.

In the U.S. on Monday, the Dow rose 23.88, or 0.2 percent, to 10,196.86 after being up as much as 84 points. The fluctuations were modest, however, after five straight days in which the Dow moved by more than 100 points.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 5.02, or 0.5 percent, to 1,096.78, while the Nasdaq composite index rose 5.51, or 0.3 percent, to 2,210.80.

Oil prices fell below $75 a barrel in Asia, weighed by weaker regional markets and a stronger dollar.

Benchmark crude for March delivery was down 84 cents to $74.42 in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose 72 cents to settle at $75.26 on Monday.

In currencies, the euro fell to $1.4080 from $1.4149. The dollar fell to 89.74 yen from 90.24 yen
