four-year doping suspension and the 2008 emergence of Bolt REUTERS Top News As Justin Gatlin prepares to meet Usain Bolt for the 10th time in their 100 metres rivalry the American says he is feeling like the old Justin when he too was an Olympic and world champion After a period that he told Reuters “has been the most difficult year for me because of injuries” the 35-year-old Rio Olympic silver medallist said he was ready for another run at the retiring Bolt in the London world championships starting on Friday “It is back to the old Justin like 2004 where I’m with the pack and pull away at the finish line That’s how I won my gold” said Gatlin the 2004 Olympic and 2005 world champion before a four-year doping suspension and the 2008 emergence of Bolt The injuries — to an ankle his calf and quadriceps and even his groin — are healing and thoughts about facing Bolt one last time are on his mind “I want to be right there running shoulder to shoulder all the way down to the finish line” Gatlin said “Just fighting for it” Only once in 2013 has he got the upper hand — at a Diamond League meeting in Rome “I have never been one not to believe in my own self” Gatlin said “But at the end of the day I have to pay homage to him “I’ve got to give Usain respect because one of the best things about him is not only has he run fast he runs fast at the moment when he needs to” As in 2015 when Bolt fought off injuries to pip Gatlin for the world title the Jamaican has not run especially fast this season breaking 10 seconds for the first time on July 21 That is no surprise to Gatlin “As a

try to get back and there’s a dullness You’ve got to fight for it to get that sharpness back” Gatlin is confident Bolt will be ready though “For sure” he said Should there be an upset and Gatlin come out on top would he join Bolt in retirement “Let’s see” the American said “I want to be able to go out with a bang” Two things tug at him to stay around until the 2020 Olympics One if still running he

(@KhawajaMAsif) July 15 2016 His comment came soon after Pakistan’s cabinet meeting on the escalating violence in Jammu and Kashmir The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) did not comment on Asif’s remarks but latched on to Nawaz Sharif’s eulogy on Burhan Wani and "completely and unequivocally" rejected the decision the Pakistan cabinet had adopted Reacting to Prime Minister Sharif’s comments on Wani where he had condemned the killing of the Hizbul Mujahideen commander and claimed him to be a freedom fighter the MEA in a statement said "Continued glorification of terrorists belonging to proscribed terrorist organizations makes it amply clear where Pakistan’s sympathies continue to lie" The MEA reacted swiftly to the continuous interest that the Pakistani high command vested on the developments happening in Kashmir "India asks Pakistan to desist from interfering in its internal affairs and destabilizing situation in South Asia by supporting terrorism and other subversive acts" File image of Pakistan defence minister Twitter @KhawajaMAsif "India is dismayed at continued attempts by Pakistan to interfere in its internal matters where Pakistan or any other external party has no locus standi" the MEA further said Islamabad has been provocative in their reaction to incidents that has unfolded in the Valley with Sharif announcing that Pakistan would be observing 19 July as ‘black day’ Earlier on Friday Pakistan’s Defence Minister Khawaja M Asif had posted a series of provocative tweets comparing clashes in Kashmir to the Gujarat riots of 2002 Asif had called the clashes

NewsWritten by Meghnad Desai | Published: February 1 2015 12:00 am Related News The story goes that it was when George W Bush found out that India had a billion people that he decided the US had to have a strategic alliance with India When he met Manmohan Singh they hit it off immediately Bush being a devout Christian quoted the Bible to Singh He was impressed when Manmohan Singh revealed a deep knowledge of the New Testament and quoted extensively from it Bush was charmed and thus started the first of the personal bond-based relationship between An Indian Prime Minister and a US President What has happened over the last few days is an extended replay of that close rapport for the next pair of PM and POTUS That first encounter signalled India’s desire to abandon its commitment to the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and its determination to show that it had grown up Bush went out of his way to free India of boycott by the Nuclear Suppliers Group and got India back into the respectable group of nuclear nations But that was just a decoy for the real change in the US-India relationship Manmohan Singh committed India to a ‘just-in-case’ military strategic partnership with the US It is a secret understanding but at least Manmohan Singh understood the significance of what he had done He staked the UPA’s survival and won a confidence vote This incidentally destroyed the Communist Left which would not have displeased Bush Fast forward to last week and we see the sealing of that bond Nuclear reactors are dangerous things which have a nasty habit of blowing up Maybe only once in 10 years but they cause incredible amount of damage as we know from a Three Mile island Chernobyl and Fukushima Private suppliers of reactors do not want to be liable Hence the insurance fund which limits their liability and makes India responsible if a reactor blows up This bit of nifty footwork was needed to activate the military deal and attract FDI Luckily the oil prices having fallen civilian nuclear energy becomes even more uneconomical than it already was Electricity supplied by nuclear power is the most expensive form of energy One can only hope that none of the reactors will be actually used They can be preserved as evidence of a folly for industrial archaeology But the nuclear deal was ever only a fig leaf even when the Bush-Singh deal was signed The real deal is the strategic partnership The Chinese know this and bristled immediately at the friendly hugs and chai pe charcha India has to play this complex strategic game not because it wants to fight China but no country can live without making some provision for the possibility of the worst-case scenario We paid for such complacency in 1962 and cannot repeat that mistake In a way the insurance pool set up for the American nuclear reactors is also designed to guard against a worst-case scenario If nuclear reactor suppliers are crybabies and need hand-holding so be it India cannot be churlish and suffer another Bhopal because the guilty MNC runs away (perhaps aided and abetted by the governments of the day at state and the Centre) India could use FDI and the alliance Indeed it is a wonder why India and the US have taken so long to cement what is a natural partnership of like-minded nations One reason was American paranoia about Communism during the Cold War days which began just as India became independent On India’s side there was a fashionable left-wing penchant for things Soviet and Nehru’s anti-Americanism inherited from his English education The MEA continued to be anti-American till very recently as we saw in the Devyani Khobragade case which was fought way beyond its worth (Could that be the reason behind the precipitate removal of the foreign secretary) Americans use their immigrant communities as soft power in their foreign relations Thus a Polish American can be ambassador to Poland as an Indian American has come to Delhi India needs to deploy its diaspora creatively

that Manila’s casinos will be able to draw rich punters and partygoers through his doors The founder of some of the world’s most popular luxury clubs launched two nightclubs in casino operator Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd’s $1 billion-plus City of Dreams casino-resort hoping to capitalise on rising wealth in the Philippines which last year was the fastest growing Asian economy after China The increase in the number of wealthy Chinese gamblers fleeing Macau amid Beijing’s intensifying crackdown on corruption is also likely to work in Manila’s favour: VIPs are already frequenting casinos in locales such as Australia Macau the world’s biggest gambling hub is due to post February gambling revenues on Monday which analysts expect to fall by up to 55 percent versus 40 percent growth a year ago "We want to bring more people to Manila make Manila more of a club destination a destination for other things for luxury for clubbing and these integrated resorts will only add to that" Ault told Reuters at the newly opened Pangaea in Manila with its animal skin and gold-dipped feather decor Melco’s City of Dreams is the second of four integrated resorts licensed for Entertainment City Manila’s much-smaller version of the Las Vegas gaming strip The first casino the $12 billion Solaire is seeing a pick up in business after intensifying efforts to attract more high-rollers The casinos are central to the government’s aim to boost tourism and the economy but challenges include Manila’s dilapidated infrastructure and concerns over safety and corruption problems that have limited foreign investment in the Philippines for years In its most recent published data industry regulator the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp (Pagcor) said gross gaming revenues rose by a tenth to $22 billion in 2013 from a year ago a figure dwarfed by Macau’s $452 billion revenues and Singapore’s $7 billion intake in the same year Melco’s ties to Macau junkets the businesses that connect wealthy punters to casinos and high-rollers could encourage its existing Chinese VIP clientele to visit Manila analysts say But Manila’s main attraction for casino operators is its thriving local gambling market The regulator expects gross gaming revenues in the Philippines to rise to $6-$7 billion by 2020 when all four casino-resorts open "Ultimately what will underpin this property is really first and foremost the domestic market and people who are already coming here" Melco Crown co-Chairman Lawrence Ho told reporters at the casino’s opening ceremony The Philippines relies on Chinese VIPs for about 30 percent of its gaming revenues compared to over 70 percent in Macau brokerage Macquarie says Entertainment City has two other casino licensees – Japan’s Universal Entertainment Corp which is opening a $2 billion casino-resort in 2016 as well as Alliance Global Group Inc and Genting Hong Kong Ltd partners in casino-hotel firm Travellers International Hotel Group Inc that will start operations in 2018 More casino openings will encourage more visitors to the area and attractions like the City of Dream’s clubs the DreamWorks Animation indoor theme park and Hollywood actor Robert De Niro’s Nobu Hotel will also boost its appeal "It helps to show that it’s a serious destination with great all-round facilities" said Greg Unsworth the head of PricewaterhouseCoopers Singapore’s

body weight may come in handy as researchers have found that overweight men are likely to have more sexual partners than their normal or underweight counterparts The survey involving 60058 heterosexual people with a mean age of 37 found that on average both men and women have had eight sexual partners since they have been sexually active File photo With regard to men and body mass index (BMI) the study revealed that overweight men had the highest number of partners "Normal weight men and overweight men reported the most sex partners and underweight men reported the least” said the study’s lead author David Frederick assistant professor in psychology at Chapman University California Although it may be initially surprising it is important to note that the medical classification of overweight does not necessarily map onto social perceptions of overweight the study said Underweight women too had notably fewer partners than other women Short women reported fewer sex partners compared with tall women The expectation that tall men would have the most sex partners was only partially supported In fact there was little difference in number of sex partners across the height continuum with one exception – only very short men reported notably fewer median sex partners (five) than men of other heights In terms of average number of partners men who were average to extremely tall reported one to three more partners than men who were shorter than average The study appeared in the journal Evolutionary Psychology IANS Former Union minister and Maharashtra’s first Muslim
