India ends its programs in Afghanistan

Indian has announced to end its Medical and Educational programs in Afghanistan due to fear of more attacks on Indians working in Afghanistan. Indians in Afghanistan thinks that are specially targeted in some of recent attacks so remaining in Afghanistan cane be dangerous for them. Last month on 26 February 17 Indians where killed in Kabul in attack of Afghan Taliban. Afghan Taliban took responsibility of this attack and said India is helping Nato forces is Afghanistan so we have right to attack Indians.

India blamed Pakistani intelligence agency ISI and Lashkar Taiba for attacks on Indians in Afghanistan but the attacks where done by Afghan Taliban and they also took the responsibility of these attacks. Many Analysts believes that Land of Afghanistan is converted into place of war between Pakistan Intelligence agency ISI and Indian Intelligence agency Raw.

California rebound boosts 20-city home price index

LOS ANGELES – A surprisingly strong rebound in California's real estate market helped lift a key home price index for the eighth month in a row.

That's good news for people who plan to sell their homes this spring. Prices are now up almost 4 percent from the bottom in May 2009, but still almost 30 percent below the May 2006 peak.

Prices rose 0.3 percent from December to January on a seasonally adjusted basis, according to the Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index released Tuesday. Prices increased in 12 cities in the index.

The biggest monthly gain was in Los Angeles, where prices rose 1.8 percent from December. And real estate agents say there's a distinct sense the worst of the downturn is over.

Buyers are "seeing that prices are creeping up," said Tony Middleton, a real estate agent with ZIP Realty who concentrates on the San Fernando Valley. "They're losing bids on homes and they have to bid again."

Prices in San Diego, meanwhile, rose by almost 0.9 percent. Phoenix had the third-largest gain at 0.8 percent.

Compared with the same month last year, the 20-city index was off just 0.7 percent from last year at a reading of 146.32. That was the smallest decline in almost three years and in line with analysts' expectations, according to Thomson Reuters.

Rising home prices also could boost consumer optimism. For most Americans, their home is their largest asset, so as values climb from the depths of the housing bust, homeowners feel wealthier and more comfortable spending. And, for homeowners who owe more on their mortgages than their properties are worth, rising prices rebuild equity.

Consumer confidence rebounded in March after a February plunge, according to a survey released Tuesday. The Conference Board's Consumer Confidence Index rose to 52.5 in March, recovering about half of the nearly 11 points it lost in February.

Still, shoppers remain cautious and there are signs that last year's housing rebound won't last. Home sales sank during the winter, and government incentives that have propped up the market are ending.

Another reason for the positive news is simply that the Case-Shiller index measures a three-month average of home prices. So January's report included November's strong home sales.

However, bargain-hunting homebuyers continue to pack open houses in California, often facing off with investors for foreclosed homes.

"We're seeing multiple offers in most of the markets here in the San Francisco Bay area," said David Kerr, an agent with ZipRealty in Oakland, Calif. "People are getting off the fence."

In February, bank-owned properties made up 44 percent of all resales in the state, according to MDA DataQuick. In Southern California, they accounted for more than half of resales.

With such high demand, supply is dwindling, driving prices higher.

Meanwhile, the state's unemployment rate has flat-lined of late, and that's made buyers more comfortable about purchasing a home than they were just six months ago, said Richard Green, director of the Lusk Center for Real Estate at the University of Southern California.

California home sales will likely get a boost in coming months thanks to a new serving of government stimulus.

Last week, state lawmakers enacted a tax credit of up to $10,000 for homebuyers that kicks in May 1. The state allotted $100 million for first-time buyers and another $100 million to anyone who buys a newly built home. California had a round of tax credits last year that proved to be popular; that program ended in July.

The latest incentive picks up where a federal first-time homebuyer tax credit of up to $8,000 is scheduled to leave off when it expires at the end of April. Should the Obama administration extend the federal tax break, that could give homebuyers in California even more reasons to buy.

Still, there remain pockets of weakness. Sales of homes priced above $500,000 are sluggish. And despite rising prices, more than one-third of all homeowners with a mortgage still owe more on their loans than their homes are worth, according to First American CoreLogic.

Among the cities showing monthly price declines in January, the biggest drop was in Portland, Ore., where prices fell 1.8 percent from December. Chicago and Seattle saw declines of 1.7 percent, while prices in Atlanta fell 1.5 percent.

Many analysts expect the Case-Shiller 20-city index will again turn downward in the coming months as more foreclosures in other states hit the market.

"It is only a matter of time before the index records a double-dip in prices," wrote Paul Dales, U.S. economist with Capital Economics, who forecasts a 5 percent drop. The market will be tested in the second half of the year, he wrote, when a tax credit that has boosted sales is gone.

The Case-Shiller index measures home price increases and decreases relative to prices in January 2000. The base reading is 100; so a reading of 150 would mean that home prices increased 50 percent since the beginning of the index.

European stocks up modestly ahead of US data

LONDON – European stock markets rose modestly Wednesday following a late rebound on Wall Street in the previous session and ahead of a raft of U.S. economic data, though the long Easter break kept trading volumes light.

The FTSE 100 index of leading British shares was up 13.76 points, or 0.2 percent, at 5,686.08 while Germany's DAX rose 13.16 points, or 0.2 percent, to 6,155.61. The CAC-40 in France was 7.64 points, or 0.2 percent, higher at 3,995.05.

Wall Street was poised to dip slightly following a flat performance on Tuesday — Dow futures were down 10 points, or 0.1 percent, at 10,844 while the broader Standard & Poor's 500 futures fell 1.5 point, or 0.1 percent, to 1,167.90.

Tim Hughes, head of sales trading at IG Index, said a raft of U.S. economic data later, including the monthly private payrolls report from ADP, a manufacturing survey for the Chicago region and crude oil inventory figures "all have the potential to add a small amount of volatility to an otherwise bland trading landscape later in the day."

The big event this week is Friday's U.S. nonfarm payrolls data for March — traditionally this can set the market tone for a week or two but this month's figures will be released as many traders head off for the Easter break. All major stock indexes in Europe and the U.S. are closed for Good Friday.

The report is expected to show employers added 170,000 jobs in March. That would be only the second increase since the recession began in late 2007.

The euro, meanwhile, rallied 0.4 percent to $1.3464 after official figures showed inflation in the 16 countries that use the euro spiked to its highest level in 15 months during March. The dollar rose 0.6 percent to 93.36 yen.

In its preliminary estimate for the year to March, Eurostat, the EU's statistics office, said consumer prices in the eurozone rose by 1.5 percent, way above February's equivalent rate of 0.9 percent and market expectations for a more modest increase to 1.2 percent.

Eurostat did not provide any more details but a fuller analysis of why inflation jumped to its highest level since December will emerge on April 16, when a broader analysis is published.

Despite the euro's advance Wednesday, the currency continues to be dogged by worries surrounding Greece's debt crisis.

Even though the European Union finally agreed a backstop for the debt-laden country last week, investors remain concerned about the Greek government's ability to tap the financial markets for more cash — two bond issues this week met with muted success.

The most visible sign of unease in the markets is in the spread between Greek and German 10-year bond yields — the so-called spread between the two is indicative of investor unease, rising as it has to over 3.4 percentage points.

The current spread is more or less the same as before the rescue plan's announcement last Thursday and up from the 3.06 percentage points on Monday.

In Asia, trading was fairly lackluster. Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 stock average ended down 7.20 points, or less than 0.1 percent, at 11,089.94 while Hong Kong's Hang Seng fell 135.44 points, or 0.6 percent, at 21,239.35. south Korea's index fell less than 0.5 percent to 1,692.85.

Australia's benchmark dropped 0.8 percent and China's Shanghai index was off 0.6 percent.

Benchmark crude for May delivery was up 49 cents at $82.86 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose 20 cents to settle at $82.37 on Tuesday.

India unhappy on China Bangladesh increasing relations

There is no Neighbour country of India with whom it is has good relations whether it is Pakistan, China, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka non of these country is very close to India. Indian hands are also found in terrorism on some of theses countries but the latest bad news for India which is making Indian officials very upset is increasing relations between Bangladesh and China. According to Bangladeshi Media Indian officials are really upset on increasing cooperation between Bangladesh and China in different sectors.

This increasing cooperation between Bangladesh and China effected India Bangladesh relations so much that Bangladeshi Foreign Secretary needed to give the statement that relations between Bangladesh and China will not effect relations of India and Bangladesh. China is doing cooperation with Bangladesh in sectors of Railway, Ports and making streets these days. China is also interested in investing on different sectors in Bangladesh in future. India is not happy with changing situation of the region and if US and Nato forces also left Afghanistan in next few months India will be even more problems.

Sania Mirza to wed Shoaib Malik next month

Karachi/Hyderabad, Mar 29 (PTI) Indian tennis star Sania Mirza is all set to marry Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik in April, two months after she broke her engagement with childhood friend Sohrab Mirza.

Confirming the news, Malik wrote in his Twitter page, "Thanks for all your support. And the news of me marrying to Sania is true. Inshallah will get married in April."

"I fully understand what it takes to be an international sports person and I will support Sania in her career as long as she wishes to play," he said.

"Representing India at the 2012 Olympics is very important for her and I will be the proudest husband if she can win a medal for her country," he added.

A statement by Sania's father Imran Mirza also stated that 23-year-old Sania and the 28-year-old all-rounder will be based in Dubai, where Malik is a resident.

Alice In Wonderland

Story: Alice runs away from her wedding and returns to Wonderland, once again. This time, she realises she must set things right in the strange land by siding up with the White Queen and putting an end to the Red Queen's reign of terror. Aiding her in her crusade are the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Caterpillar and several others.

Movie Review: Tim Burton has a characteristic cinematic vision that completely defies the stereotype. Whatever be the story, this maverick film maker doesn't really believe in telling it straight. With Alice in Wonderland too, you might find the characters do emerge from the pages of Lewis Carroll's landmark book, but their contours, colours and contortions are all their own.

Hence, you have Alice (Mia Wasikowska), a runaway bride, going down the rabbit hole once again, in order to escape from an inconvenient marriage. You have the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) who doesn't only wear green mascara, he also wears his heart on his sleeve. Hear him tell Alice softly she needn't go back to the world above, and your heart almost melts. And then, there's the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter), a ruler who doesn't know whether it is better to be loved or feared. Do we hate her or do we pity her? Can't say. Or, more importantly, is she really mean, with her murderous `Off with their heads!' chant or is she just a victim of loneliness, isolation and rejection.

After all, she must have had a difficult life growing up grotesque and ugly, with a bulbous head, alongside her beautiful sister, the White Queen (Anne Hathaway). Also, there are the bunch of animated characters who breathe life into the film with their fantastic forms and their excellent voice-overs.

Our favourites being the spooky Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry), now visible, now gone, the erudite, hookah-smoking Caterpillar (Alan Rickman) and Bayard (Timothy Spall), the limpid-eyed dog who is forced to do stuff he doesn't like, because the wicked queen holds his wife and pups captive.

Indeed, the parade of characters is extremely colourful, as is the canvas, which literally explodes in frame after frame of sheer art. The landscape of Wonderland, designed by Robert Stromberg of Avatar fame, is truly wondrous and leaves you gasping, time and again. The almost surrealistic spiritualism of the White Queen's kingdom stands out in stark contrast to the dark mystery and the gaudy hysteria of the Red Queen's world.

The Mad Hatter's tea party is a sheer delight, as are Alice's encounter with the Cheshire Cat. And above all there is the universal battle of good over evil, which culminates in a dramatic finale where Alice must summon hidden reserves of courage to slay the demonic Jabberwocky.

The evergreen fable comes alive in mesmeric form. Don't miss your tryst with a dapper Johnny Depp, a newage Alice and an over-the-top Tim Burton.

Percy Jackson And The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Story: Young Percy Jackson is a demi-god (son of a god and a human). He is falsely accused of stealing the lightning bolt and must retrieve it before earth is torn asunder by the warring gods. Aiding him in his search for the missing bolt are Annabeth, the daughter of goddess Athena and Satyr, a half-human, half-goat creature.

Movie Review: The film is supposed to be in competition with the Harry Potter series. Let's just say, it offers no competition, even though it's directed by Chris Columbus who directed the initial films in the Potter franchise. And that's primarily because the plot fills you with a sense of deja vu. Based on the first book from Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the five-book young adult series by Rick Riordan, the plot featuring a bunch of demi-god heroes -- kids born out of the coming-together of Greek gods and humans -- fills you with a sense of deja vu. The adventures are similar, the enemies are familiar, the special effects are less effective and the sum total is a film that engages but doesn't shock and awe....So unlike HP!

Percy a dyslexic kid, fathered by Posiedon, the sea God, is forced to attend half-blood camp (deja vu, didn't we say!) when he is falsely accused by Zeus of stealing a lightning bolt. His mother, a bedraggled human, is kidnapped by weird monsters and sent to Hades, the supernatural underworld, where she is held captive until Percy returns the lightning bolt. And if he fails to do so, the gods will be at war which will send the world into apocalyptic mode, unleashing earthquakes, tornadoes and twisters. All he has to help him are his special skills, his dad's voice and his three friends, demi-goddess Annabeth, goat-man Grover and centaur Pierce Brosnan. Of course, not forgetting the flying shoes and the special pen that metamorphoses into a sword.

Amongst all the fantastical characters that inhabit the film, we would specially like to mention Uma Thurman as the serpent-haired Medusa who walks away with most of our applause as the svelte meanie. Absolutely delightful. For the rest, a word of caution. Don't go looking for Pottermania and you could have some fun with Percymania now.

US jobless claims drop more than expected

WASHINGTON: New claims for unemployment benefits fell more than expected last week as layoffs ease and hiring slowly recovers.

The decline brought the four-week average of claims, which smooths volatility, to its lowest level since September 2008, when the financial crisis intensified. The report is an encouraging sign that the economy is getting closer to generating job gains, economists said.

“We’re on the cusp of a hiring recovery,” said Zach Pandl, an economist at Nomura Securities.

The Labor Department said Thursday that first-time claims for jobless benefits dropped by 14,000 to a seasonally adjusted 442,000. That’s below analysts’ estimates of 450,000, according to Thomson Reuters.

Most of the drop resulted from a change in the calculations the department makes to seasonally adjust the data, a Labor Department analyst said.

The department updates its seasonal adjustment methods every year, and revises its data for the previous five years. Seasonal adjustment attempts to filter out expected changes in employment such as the layoff of temporary retail employees after the winter holidays. The goal of seasonally adjusted figures is to provide a more accurate picture of underlying economic trends.

Excluding seasonal adjustment, initial claims fell by more than 30,000 last week to 405,557.

The report contributed to a rise in the stock market. The Dow Jones industrial average rose more than 119 points before paring some of those gains later in the day. Broader indexes also rose.

Initial claims have fallen in three of the past four weeks, wiping out most of the increase that took place in the first two months of this year.

First-time claims were elevated last month by severe snowstorms on the East Coast, which caused backlogs in many state offices that fell behind in processing claims.

Many economists say claims need to fall below roughly 425,000 to signal that the economy will consistently create jobs, though some say it could happen with claims at higher levels.

Carl Riccadonna, senior U.S. economist at Deutsche Bank, said claims need to fall below 400,000 before the economy will consistently create jobs. Claims will likely fall below that level sometime in April, Riccadonna wrote in a note to clients.

Analysts forecast the nation will gain more than 150,000 jobs in March, partly due to temporary hiring for the Census. The Labor Department will report the March figures April 2.

That would be only the second time the economy has added jobs in the 28 months since the recession began.

Some hiring that would have occurred in February was likely delayed because of bad weather, economists said, which will also inflate March job gains.

But Pandl and Riccadonna expect the economy generated jobs in March — even excluding the effect of the Census and weather.

The economic recovery may be persuading more companies to hire. The nation’s gross domestic product, the broadest measure of output, rose 5.9 percent in the fourth quarter, the fastest in six years.

But most of that growth resulted from a one-time gain as companies began to shift from reducing inventories to rebuilding them. Many economists expect the growth rate to drop to about 3 percent in the current January-to-March quarter.

The government will release an updated estimate of fourth-quarter growth on Friday.

The unemployment rate, meanwhile, is projected to remain at 9.7 percent in March for the third month in a row, according to economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Thursday that persistently high unemployment is one reason the central bank decided last week to keep the short-term interest rate it controls at a record low rate of near zero.

Low rates are still needed to help bolster the recovery, Bernanke said in testimony before a congressional committee.

The number of people continuing to claim unemployment benefits, meanwhile, fell to 4.6 million.

But that doesn’t include millions of people who are receiving extended benefits for up to 73 extra weeks, paid for by the federal government, on top of the 26 customarily provided by the states. Nearly 5.7 million people were on the extended benefit rolls for the week ended March 6, the latest data available. That is about 300,000 lower than the previous week. The extended benefit figures aren’t seasonally adjusted and are volatile from week to week.

All told, more than 11.1 million people are claiming unemployment benefits, the department said.

World trade to see 9.5 pct growth in 2010: WTO

GENEVA: The World Trade Organization said Friday that it expected 9.5 percent growth in merchandise trade this year, in a strong recovery from the steepest commercial contraction since the Great Depression.

The rebound will be led by an 11 percent growth in exports from developing countries such as China, India and Brazil, the WTO said. Exports from wealthy nations should rise 7.5 percent.

World trade shrunk by 12 percent in 2009, as the economic crisis destroyed consumer confidence, weakened demand, damaged credit lines for exporters and, in some instances, led to increased protectionism from governments.

The WTO said it was the "sharpest decline in more than 70 years."

Obama's health insurance rule — it was a GOP idea

WASHINGTON – Republicans were for President Barack Obama's requirement that Americans get health insurance before they were against it. The obligation in the new health care law is a Republican idea that's been around at least two decades. It was once trumpeted as an alternative to Bill and Hillary Clinton's failed health care overhaul in the 1990s. These days, Republicans call it government overreach.

Mitt Romney, weighing another run for the GOP presidential nomination, signed such a requirement into law at the state level as Massachusetts governor in 2006. At the time, Romney defended it as "a personal responsibility principle" and Massachusetts' newest GOP senator, Scott Brown, backed it. Romney now says Obama's plan is a federal takeover that bears little resemblance to what he did as governor and should be repealed.

Republicans say Obama and the Democrats co-opted their original concept, minus a mechanism they proposed for controlling costs. More than a dozen GOP attorneys general are determined to challenge the requirement in federal court as unconstitutional.

Starting in 2014, the new law will require nearly all Americans to have health insurance through an employer, a government program or by buying it directly. That year, new insurance markets will open for business, health plans will be required to accept all applicants and tax credits will start flowing to millions of people, helping them pay the premiums.

Those who continue to go without coverage will have to pay a penalty to the IRS, except in cases of financial hardship. Fines vary by income and family size. For example, a single person making $45,000 would pay an extra $1,125 in taxes when the penalty is fully phased in, in 2016.

Conservatives today say that's unacceptable. Not long ago, many of them saw a national mandate as a free-market route to guarantee coverage for all Americans — the answer to liberal ambitions for a government-run entitlement like Medicare. Most experts agree some kind of requirement is needed in a reformed system because health insurance doesn't work if people can put off joining the risk pool until they get sick.

In the early 1970s, President Richard Nixon favored a mandate that employers provide insurance. In the 1990s, the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, embraced an individual requirement. Not anymore.

"The idea of an individual mandate as an alternative to single-payer was a Republican idea," said health economist Mark Pauly of the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. In 1991, he published a paper that explained how a mandate could be combined with tax credits — two ideas that are now part of Obama's law. Pauly's paper was well-received — by the George H.W. Bush administration.

"It could have been the basis for a bipartisan compromise, but it wasn't," said Pauly. "Because the Democrats were in favor, the Republicans more or less had to be against it."

Obama rejected a key part of Pauly's proposal: doing away with the tax-free status of employer-sponsored health care and replacing it with a standard tax credit for all Americans. Labor strongly opposes that approach because union members usually have better-than-average coverage and suddenly would have to pay taxes on it. But many economists believe it's a rational solution to America's health care dilemma since it would raise enough money to cover the uninsured and nudge people with coverage into cost-conscious plans.

Romney's success in Massachusetts with a bipartisan health plan that featured a mandate put the idea on the table for the 2008 presidential candidates.

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton, who failed in the 1990s to require employers to offer coverage, embraced the individual requirement, an idea advocated by her Republican opponents in the earlier health care debate.

"Hillary Clinton believed strongly in universal coverage," said Neera Tanden, her top health care adviser in the 2008 Democratic campaign. "I said to her, 'You are not going to be able to say it's universal coverage unless you have a mandate.' She said, 'I don't want to run unless it's universal coverage.'"

Obama was not prepared to go that far. His health care proposal in the campaign required coverage for children, not adults. Clinton hammered him because his plan didn't guarantee coverage for all. He shot back that health insurance is too expensive to force people to buy it.

Obama remained cool to an individual requirement even once in office. But Tanden, who went on to serve in the Obama administration, said the first sign of a shift came in a letter to congressional leaders last summer in which Obama said he'd be open to the idea if it included a hardship waiver. Obama openly endorsed a mandate in his speech to a joint session of Congress in September.

It remains one of the most unpopular parts of his plan. Even the insurance industry is unhappy. Although the federal government will be requiring Americans to buy their products — and providing subsidies worth billions — insurers don't think the penalties are high enough.

Tanden, now at the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, says she's confident the mandate will work. In Massachusetts, coverage has gone up and only a tiny fraction of residents have been hit with fines.

Brown, whose election to replace the late Democratic Sen. Edward M. Kennedy almost led to the collapse of Obama's plan, said his opposition to the new law is over tax increases, Medicare cuts and federal overreach on a matter that should be left up to states. Not so much the requirement, which he voted for as a state lawmaker.

SKorean naval ship sinks near NKorea; 46 missing

BAENGNYEONG ISLAND, South Korea – Hopes faded Saturday for the rescue of 46 marines missing after an explosion sank a South Korean military ship near the disputed sea border with rival North Korea in one of the South's worst naval disasters.

Navy and coast guard vessels, as well as air force planes, were searching the waters near South Korea's Baengnyeong Island where the 1,200-ton Cheonan sank early Saturday in bad weather and rough waves during a routine patrol mission.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff said an explosion tore a hole in the rear of the Cheonan late Friday night, shutting off the engine, wiping out power and taking the ship down a little over three hours later. Officials said they did not have specific information about where on the ship the explosion occurred.

Despite early fears of an attack, there was no immediate indication that North Korea — which lies about 10 miles (17 kilometers) from Baengnyeong and was visible Saturday from the island — was to blame, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said, but troops kept a vigilant watch.

Joint Chiefs spokesman Park Seong-woo said the military will issue a judgment on the cause of the accident after rescue teams search and salvage the vessel for analysis.

Most of the vessel was underwater Saturday, though part of its hull was visible. Officials have yet to confirm any deaths. Some of the 58 rescued crew members were treated for minor burns, broken bones and abrasions.

At a naval base in Pyeongtaek, south of Seoul, wails filled the air as relatives checked a list of missing marines. One man, his brow furrowed with worry, stared blankly out the window; another wept silently, his forehead pressed up against a television screen listing the missing crew members' names.

"Where are you? Where can you be?" one mother screamed.

President Lee Myung-bak ordered officials to quickly determine what caused the ship to sink and make all efforts to rescue the crew, spokeswoman Kim Eun-hye said.

The ship went down near a disputed maritime border that has been a flash point between the two Koreas. Their militaries have fought three bloody skirmishes in the area in recent years. South Korea uses Baengnyeong Island as a military outpost.

The explosion prompted a number of crew members to jump into the water, the military said.

"Yells and screams filled the air," witness Kim Jin-ho, a seaman who was on a local passenger ship bound for Baengnyeong, told cable news channel YTN. "Marines on deck were desperately shouting: 'Save me!'"

First Lt. Baek Jae-woo, a lecturer on vessel structure and design at the Republic of Korea Naval Academy, said it won't be clear what caused the explosion until the ship is towed. "But at this point, all three scenarios — missile attack, internal explosion, torpedoes — are possible causes."

He said the Cheonan was designed to carry weaponry for coastal defense and a full frontal attack.

Hopes for the missing were diminishing with each hour, a coast guard official said. He said humans can survive in winter waters if rescued within two hours, noting that the temperature of the Yellow Sea at the time was between 37 and 41 degrees Fahrenheit (3 and 5 degrees Celsius). He asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the issue.

The incident is one of South Korea's worst naval disasters. Local media reported that the country's worst maritime accident occurred in 1974, when a ship sank off the southeast coast in stormy weather, killing 159 sailors and coast guard personnel. In 1967, 39 sailors were killed by North Korean artillery.

The explosion sparked fears of another attack. On Friday, North Korea's military threatened "unpredictable strikes" against the U.S. and South Korea in anger over a report the two countries plan to prepare for possible instability in the totalitarian country.

The two Koreas remain locked in a state of war because the three-year Korean War ended in 1953 with a truce, not a peace treaty.

However, there were no signs of North Korean military movements, presidential spokeswoman Kim said.

"It's looking more and more like it was just an accident that happens on a ship," Carl Baker, an expert on Korean military relations at the Pacific Forum CSIS think tank in Honolulu, said by telephone. He said North Korea was unlikely to attack the far more powerful South Korean military.

At the naval base in Pyeongtaek, many relatives waited for news, their faces buried in tissues and handkerchiefs. However, about 150 — fed up with the lack of information — pushed their way past security to confront military officials.

Nato denies to stop growing opium‎ in Afghanistan

Nato Forces has denied to destroy fields of opium‎ in Afghanistan by saying that we cannot destroy employment of Afghan people. Russian drug control agency Chief Vicktra Evanon has said that we requested Nato forces to destroy all opium fields in Afghanistan but they have rejected our request by saying that we cannot destroy employment of Afghan people. Spokesperson of Nato James Appathurai has said that we will look into this matter with care because we don,t want to end employment of Afghan people.

Truth is that Afghan people are not growing opium but some criminals and people in Afghan Government including brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai. The amount earned from opium is used in terrorism and also effecting Neighbour countries. during the Government of Afghan Taliban growing opium was completely ended but after American and Nato attack on Afghanistan it has started again.

It is personal…

It has always believed that the biggest problem with the government we have in all those years since 1960 have been the confusion in and by the person in power i.e. every dictator wanted and even tried to be democrat and a publically elected and chosen one turned into dictator. There is a saying that the old habits die hard exactly the same thing I experienced last evening. While the whole day it was a part of discussion that by the end of the day 17th amendment might be the part of history, new name of NWFP might have been decided and many other so called issues will be resolved.. I used the word so called because such issues are the interests of the people in power but to a common man he has nothing to do with all this he is just asking for basic necessities.
Mr. Nawaz Shareef held a press conference and did everything to make the potential 18th amendment turn into ashes, why is he doing so? From the day one he is asking for the 18th amendment and the end of 17th one. To me his politics is all personal many months back there was a plan being followed to become president, in the camp of this N league. Now when there is nothing about the clause to become the prime minister for the 3rd time, Mr. Nawaz Shareef has declared it unacceptable.
To me Nawaz Shareef is a strange character he looks like Butt Saab type of people who have nothing to do but to eat and talk about silly stuff, however when ever NS been in power he acted like Mola Jutt been hand in hand with Army, Judiciary, Media and many other fights in different arenas. To best of my knowledge these all rivalries were the result of a sense of being a dictator. All the things been said yesterday are proving that these people have nothing to do with the feelings and demands of a common man to such people politics is all about “Its Personal” matter.
The biggest achievement in the score-card of NS in recent past is the restoration of judiciary, which was a demand of the nation at that time and the whole thing was used to get more score and followership. Nevertheless let me go to the time when there was confusion on the topic that PML-N will support long march or not and I think many of you still remember the statement of NS in which he was annoyed on the declaration of long march day without taking his opinion on it. He is not a lawyer he was just using the whole campaign for his own purpose. Let me give another example in connection to the same factor. NS decided to support the lawyers’ movement openly and declared that he will lead the long march, and this declaration was made right after becoming unworthy as per court decision.
There are so many examples of his past proving that how much personally he takes the issue and put the expectations of mango (common) people in a corner. Once I was talking to a person from N league, and he told me that there are two groups in N league one is pro Shabaz and other is Pro Nawaz all those who are experts or even learners of the art of flattering belong to Nawaz camp. But I have observed, might be there are two groups, there is another group which can be called Ch. Nisar group. Yes the leader of the opposition, one of those people in N League who was very happy on court’s decision which declared Shareef Brothers unworthy.
And last evening what I can observed that the former two time PM of Pakistan was looking like the puppet of Ch. Nisar camp, and whole press conference says that the only eagerness he has is to get into power and on other issues like empowering the parliament, provincial independence and the demand of decades; change the name of NWFP, he has nothing to do with. That’s why I believe that one of the biggest blunders he made in his life the press conference was one of them. No doubt it was personal not national.

Younis Khan, Shahid Afridi appeal against PCB penalties

Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi have lodged appeals against the penalties imposed on them by the PCB in the aftermath of a disastrous tour of Australia.

Afridi, who was named Pakistan's captain for the World Twenty20, was fined Rs 3 million (US$35,000) for his ball-biting incident in Perth, for which he was also banned for two Twenty20 matches by the ICC. Younis and Yousuf, meanwhile, were accused by the PCB of being a bad influence on the Pakistan team due to "their infighting" and "attitude".

"Yes I have sent a notice to the Chief Operating Officer of the board Wasim Bari, asking him on what grounds have I been fined by the board," Afridi was quoted as saying by PTI. "I have taken the plea that when the board chairman Ijaz Butt himself has said on record that the PCB would not punish me twice for the same offence how can they fine me now for ball tampering."

Ahmed Qayyum, the lawyer for Younis, said he had sent a letter to the board asking them to explain on what grounds the indefinite ban was imposed on his client. "The chargesheet they have sent to Younis contains no proper evidence or explanation to back up the indefinite ban, there is no reasoning given for the ban," he said. "We have basically asked the board to provide us with solid evidence that Younis was involved in infighting with Yousuf and that they disrupted the team's dressing room atmosphere.

"We want this issue to be settled amicably and the ban to be ended but if that does not happen then we will go to the court."

The duo were among seven players penalised for various reasons. Mohammad Yousuf and Younis were banned indefinitely by the PCB, Shoaib Malik and Rana Naved-ul-Hasan were banned for a year while Afridi and the Akmal brothers were fined and placed on probation for six months. Malik and Naved, too, reports have suggested, are preparing to lodge an appeal. The penalties were imposed on March 10, and the players have 30 days to appeal against them.

The PCB last week appointed two retired Supreme Court judges - Muneer Sheikh and Jamshed Ali Shah - and a former High Court judge, Irfan Qadir, to deal with the appeals.

US blames Iran of training Afghan Taliban

American officials has blamed Iran that Iran is providing training to Afghan Taliban. Iran has rejected these blames strongly. According to report of American TV CNN American Lieutenant Karnal Adword Sholts has said that Iran is giving training to Afghan Taliban and providing them weapons while it is not clear that Iranian Government is also supporting this or it is happening outside control of Iranian Government. Iranian officials has rejected this blame of Americans.

This is not the first time Americans are blaming other for their defeat in Afghanistan in the past they blamed Pakistan Intelligence agency ISI and China for helping Afghan Taliban against Americans. the thing is clear Americans want to make others responsible for their defeat in Afghanistan.

is that what is called Takmeel????

Yesterday on 23rd of March, even after assuring myself I could not write any blog post and I know that how much regret I am going to face in coming days for this dynamic, the whole day was a busy one and after a long time I utilized my day off in a full sense. I don’t want to spell out the whole day long story so let me come to the main reason of this blog post. There was an event taking place in Alhamra Open Hall Theater near Qaddafi Stadium, LahoreTAKMEEL E PAKISATN, was the title of the event.
At first this event was going to be held at MINAR-E-PAKISTAN and according to the organizing team it was the other part of the resolution which was passed 70 years back on the same date, that’s why it was named as Takmeel (task to complete). I got chance to be there because at first I had no plan to be there due to some reason and changing the venue one day before was somewhat alarming for me.
The reason for changing the venue was the anti ZAID HAMID rallies that was gathering at Minar e Pakistan at the same time when this event was planned. I volunteer myself for the vents just to see the “back Stage” happenings, and to my luck I was appointed as a member VIP escort team, it was obvious that I got chance to meet some people from Brasstacks, and of course I met Zaid Hamid too. I must say, despite the issues I have with him, he was very kind when I met him and quite different than the ZH we see on TV or behind the dice.
The event could not be started the way it was planned, or I should better say that the event ended before it could start. There was a stampede and the points of resolution were read by Zaid Hamid in a great hurry. The NOC for the event was canceled by the authorities as the Anti group started to gather at the place and it could have been a serious security issue. I could only understand only two points of the resolution as I was on my toes at that time (share them soon as i get the email). All of us were asked to quit the place and every big one left the place.

So that’s what takmeel is all about, the only wise decision at that time was to leave the place and it was taken by Zaid Hamid himself (apparently�to secure all the people present there), because there was a news that this event is possible and it can be completed if it is minus Zaid Hamid. the result of the event is still confusing for me as according to few people the cancelation of event is a slap on ZH and whole the movement and according to few the resolution is passed and that was the main reason for us all to gather there( in a nut shell it was a successful event).
Why we all love to be controvercial or why all the controversies peep out there heads at the time when someone become famous that is something I am unable to understand for a while. I said many times in recent past that I am no more a big fan of Zaid Hamid and I maintain this line but I believe as far as he is a Pro-Pakistan and Peo-Islam in a true sense then I am with him or any other person who have these few qualities. Still I think than why to be controversial??? To me takmeel event was a flop and I mean it, see if you are on a right way than you must make people to be with you rather than making every one an enemy is not a good policy as per me, because I think the formula to be in the shit-list of people just to prove that you are doing something worthwhile is acceptable in every case.
If it was about Pakistan than why only youth is required on such events why don’t people from every age and class can take part in takmeel??? I believe it’s time that the positions of many must be cleared and I think many of you understand about whom I am talking.

Bait Ul Muqaddas is not occupied but our Capital Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Netan Yahu has said that Bait Ul Muqaddas is not a occupied land but it is our Capital so its right to create building their. He also said that Iran must not be allowed to become Nuclear power otherwise it can be harmful for whole world. Netan Yahu has also met American President Barack Obama. America has promised to protect Israel and also promised to take action against Iran.

So these are the two countries America and Israel who calls themselves peaceful and declares Muslim as terrorists. Both of them are having Nuclear weapons but if Iran gets Nuclear weapons it will be wrong. Both of them has killed millions of Muslims in Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan but they both are peaceful. Israel has killed millions of Muslims, occupied Bait Ul Muqaddas, Siege Gaza so that food, Medicine don,t reach to people of Gaza but still Israel is not terrorist but Hamas is terrorist because it struggling for freedom of Palestine. Israel is expanded 5 times as it was on day if its creation by occupying Palestine everyday still its a peaceful country but if someone struggles to take its land back that is terrorist. Why these Double standards???

FACT CHECK: Spinning the new health care law

WASHINGTON – The tumultuous health care debate that brought you death panels and socialism has spun off a catalog of popular myths that will keep growing as President Barack Obama and all sides battle toward the midterm elections this fall.

At a White House signing ceremony Tuesday, Obama ventured the hope that Americans on all sides will judge the legislation for what it actually says and does. "When I sign this bill," he declared, "all of the overheated rhetoric over reform will finally confront the reality of reform."

Wishful thinking, Mr. President.

Facts are stubborn, the saying goes. But myths about the legislation are likely to persist as well. And a lot of people don't agree on which is which.

"People have taken away from the debate a number of beliefs about the bill that are very difficult to shake based on objective reports," said Robert Blendon, a Harvard public health professor who follows opinion trends. "There is enough skepticism out there that questions about how it's going to help the country are likely to continue."

Here's a look at some of the myths and realities, from both sides of the issue:

• Obama has put the nation on a slippery slope toward socialism.

Hello? Government's role in health care has been steadily growing since Medicare and Medicaid were established 45 years ago. Even if Republicans were to take control of Washington and repeal this bill, government would still be on track to pick up more than half the nation's health care tab by 2012, according to a report last month from Medicare.

"The Republican myth is that the government is for the first time going to take over the health care sector," said economist Joe Antos of the business-oriented American Enterprise Institute. "The takeover was probably largely accomplished in 1965 with the creation of Medicare and Medicaid. Since the early days, Medicare has called the shots on a lot of policy issues that private insurance fell in line with."

Still, the new law will undoubtedly expand the government's influence. Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., warned Tuesday it will lead to the "quasi-nationalization of the health industry."

Underline "quasi." Democrats dropped their idea of a government insurance plan to compete with private carriers. So any "socialization" will be channeled through Wellpoint, UnitedHealthcare and other private insurance giants.

Health care overhaul is going to lower your health insurance premiums.

Obama says that once new competitive insurance markets open for business, in 2014, individuals buying coverage comparable to what they have today will pay 14-20 percent less. Family coverage costs about $13,400 a year, so that could be real money.

But the president's assurance is based on a selective reading of a Congressional Budget Office report that found most individuals would probably buy better, more expensive coverage than what's available today.

And Obama skips over an important caveat: The budget office didn't say premiums would be lower than currently. It said premiums for some people would be lower than they would have been without the bill. Premiums for others would be higher.

With the U.S. population getting older, and medical science pushing the technological envelope, there's very little reason to think premiums will go down. The best Obama can hope for is to slow the pace of increases.

• You will be forced to pay for other people's abortions.

Only if you join a health insurance plan that covers abortion. In that case, the costs of paying for abortions would be spread over all the enrollees in the plan — no differently from how other medical procedures are handled, except a policyholder would have to write a separate check for it.

Timothy Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University, said people who don't want to pay for abortion could simply pick a plan that doesn't offer it.

There would definitely be a demand for such plans, and not just from people with moral objections. Single men and older women would have no reason to pay an extra premium for abortion coverage.

• The Democratic bill will lead to government health care rationing.

The legislation sets up a research center to compare the effectiveness of medical treatments, and critics fear that bureaucrats will start issuing justifications for denying patients access to the latest medical technology.

Republicans as well as Democrats had previously called for a major investment in such research to help make sense of which kinds of treatments, medications and technologies are worth the cost.

The legislation specifies that the research findings cannot be used to impose mandates, guidelines or recommendations for payment, coverage, or treatment — or used to deny coverage.

Acceptance of the research is likely to be slow in coming, and the medical community — not government and insurance companies — will probably take the lead in vetting it.

The American people have already rejected Obamacare.

Although some polls show a majority oppose the bill, most surveys find the public about evenly divided. Blendon, the public opinion expert, believes it's premature to say that the public has rejected it. Curiously, many individual components — doing away with insurance denials for pre-existing conditions, tax credits to help pay premiums, insurance purchasing pools — are widely popular.

Obama reads those findings to mean that Democrats have a chance to turn around public opinion, and he's embarking on a campaign to sell the bill.

• The legislation will save Medicare from bankruptcy.

Democrats say the bill — even as it cuts Medicare to pay for expanded coverage for working families — will add at least nine years of solvency to the program's giant hospital insurance trust fund, now projected to be exhausted in 2017.

Technically that's true — but only on paper.

Savings from the Medicare cuts will be invested in government IOUs, like any other trust fund surplus. The special Treasury securities count as an asset on Medicare's books — making the program's precarious financial situation seem more reassuring. But the government will spend the actual money. And when time comes for Medicare to redeem the IOUs, lawmakers will have to scramble to come up with the cash.

The key point is that the Medicare savings will be received by the government only once, the Congressional Budget Office said, "so they cannot be set aside to pay for future Medicare spending and, at the same time, pay for current spending ... on other programs."

JPMorgan closes in on tax refund deal with FDIC: report

(Reuters) – JPMorgan Chase (JPM.N) is closing in on a deal with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp (FDIC) that could result in a tax refund of about $1.4 billion for the bank, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the talks.

JPMorgan was not available to comment on the report.

As part of a larger settlement with Washington Mutual's bondholders, JPMorgan can claim $1.4 billion of funds in the FDIC receivership to protect itself against exposure to mortgages that WaMu serviced, the Journal said.

Washington Mutual Inc (WAMUQ.PK), which is tied to the biggest bank failure in U.S. history, is eligible to receive about $5.6 billion in tax refunds as part of a court settlement. WaMu was seized by the FDIC in 2008 and was later sold to JPMorgan foJustify Fullr $1.9 billion.

On March 12, Washington Mutual agreed to split the two potential tax refunds with JPMorgan and the FDIC.

WaMu agreed to receive $900 million of a $2.6 billion expected return, with the rest going to JPMorgan. A second $2.6 billion return will be bring in $1.04 billion for Washington Mutual with the rest going to the FDIC.

Are you Satisfied or Confused????

It was Sunday last year and date was 15th March a strange day in our history. At one end Besant was being celebrated and on the other hand Long March to restore the judiciary was on. I have been in favor of free judiciary since I came across to the Quote of Hazrat Ali R.A; “the government of Kufr (infidelity) can survive but the government of cruelty can never remain in power”. I believe if there is no justice in the society and the country it means that there is the government of cruelty is going on.
2007 proved to be a year which resulted many changes, Prvaiz Musharaf who was the center of all the powers in the Pakistan, started making mistakes one after the other and his rivalry with the black coats was the first blunder he made. I do not think that I have to write about it anymore as it’s known to everyone here that what happened after it, each day it was a new turn. Implementation of emergency (which I call a mini martial law), king’s party was defeated in the elections and now the party of Martyr of Democracy was in power.
When all the things were showing green flag, still it took more than one year to the judiciary is restarted by the Peoples Government. I admire the movement of black coats as to me it’s been the longest running campaign ever which gave a good result, a common man and people from civil society supported them a lot and how can I forget the support they got online through social media and Blogosphere of Pakistan.
Let me come to the Long March day, I have no interest in Besant and all that and I wanted to be the part of the moment which was being written in the chapters of this history. But I was not allowed to go there where the long march was on, I was forced to play cricket the time when the caravan was passing by the road which is near my house. I had all the good feelings and best wishes for the people who were on the mission, as I thought that I will bring some good for the mango men like me (aam admi).
At night when I was at home and watching the live coverage of the long march on TV and enjoying the text messages of my friends, actually one of my friends wished in his text message that army should take over—this one was a laughing stock for me. Every TV channel was giving some new news and every TV anchor was asking people to not to sleep as some good news is in pipe line. I don’t remember all the anchors whom I watched on TV, but I can remember Aaa Aaaa fame Kamran Khan who was asking people to not to sleep as watch man calls “ Jagty Rehna” (Stay awake), and the other one I still remember is Asma Chaudhri, many of you will amaze that what so special about her but she was looking really good in black dress with red embroidery.
I was not a serious blogger in those days so the only good habit I had than was to sleep in time as the university was the beigest responsibility on me, being a student. In the morning when I was getting ready for University the first thing I heard on TV was the words of Kamran Khan saying “Hum ne Kaha than a k mat soiye ap ko maza aa jay ga, dekh lijiye hum ne durust kaha tha PM ne Adlia Bahal karnay ka elan kar dia hay” (we told you not to sleep as you will have fun and see we were right as PM has announced to restore the judiciary)—my memory might be deceiving me so if any word in above statement is wrong pardon me for it but I can assure that it was all as per the best I could remember.
I think I should get little serious now as a lot of fun has been made throughout the post. It’s been a year today that the judiciary been restored, but do you all think we have achieved what we dreamed for, other than NRO there has been no big case been resolved so far. Missing Persons case which was one of the claim to fame for CJ Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhri, is still in the air and there is no head of the thread so far. Some say that the judiciary has become a party now to some extent they may be right but on the next moment I think this might be the reaction as we are not used to free judiciary.
I don’t think that I am an expert on this but I have a question that are you satisfied with the one year performance of free judiciary???? Well if I was asked the same question my reply would have been that I am confused…
