US cinema hall shooting massacre

A masked gunman on Friday turned the much-awaited premiere of the latest Batman movie in a US cinema hall into a "horrific" bloodbath, spraying the audience with bullets killing 12 people and leaving 59 others injured.

The gunman, dressed in black, wearing a gas mask and a full body armour, marched into the packed theatre in Aurora, a suburb of Denver, Colorado, during a midnight showing of 'The Dark Knight Rises' starring Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway. He entered the theatre through the emergency exit lobbing two canisters that instantly filled the theatre with smoke and then used his automatic rifle to carry out a macabre dance of death. Citing FBI, American TV networks said the gunman has been identified as 24-year-old James Holmes from Aurora. Police said 10 people were killed at the scene, while they put the overall death toll to at least 12. Earlier police had said at least 14 people had died but later revised the toll. The US Defence Department said…

India should win at least half a dozen medals in London:Manoj Pingle

Pune: Olympian Manoj Pingle believes that India has a good chance to win at least half a dozen medals in the London Olympics that begins after a week from now and expressed confidence that Lakshya’s stars would also make an important contribution to that tally.
The Pune-based boxer, who represented India at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, said this while interacting with the media on the sidelines of the launch of Lakshya’s Cheer our Olympians’ campaign ahead of the Olympics on Friday. “It is heartening to see that organisations like Lakshya have come forward to support the players and have contributed in a big way in ensuring that many more players are qualifying for the Olympics,” said the Asian Games medallist, who was joined by former hockey international and now administrator Rekha Bhide and tennis stars like Arjun Kadhe, Rutuja Bhosale and Ankita Raina. Five Lakshya supported players – Jwala Gutta, V Diju, Ashwini Ponnappa (badminton), Jai Bhagwan (boxing) and Rahi Sarnobat (shooting…

आचार्य बालकृष्ण को गिरफ्तार कर लिया गया है

बाबा रामदेव के सहयोगी आचार्य बालकृष्ण को गिरफ्तार कर लिया गया है।यह तो होना ही था आखिर उत्तरांचल में कांग्रेस की सरकार जो बन गई हैं
एक वर्ष लगा कांग्रेस और सीबीआई को आचार्य बालकृष्ण के खिलाफ  केस तैयार करने में.अब  देखिये हुआ किया /
सीबीआई ने कहा संस्कृत विश्वविधालय को की हम आपका विध्यालय बंद करवा देंगे और आप कुछ नहीं कर सकते,इतने पर ही रेगिस्त्रार और प्रिंसिपल परेशान हो गए और उन्होंने आचार्य जी के नाम पर किसी और का नाम एंट्री करवा दिया.
जिस समय आचार्य बालकृष्ण वहा पर पढते थे उस वक़्त के प्रिंसिपल पर भी जोर  दिया की गवाही आचार्य जी के खिलाफ हो.
इन सब चीजों के बाद ही यह वारंट निकला.

बाबा रामदेव के सहयोगी आचार्य बालकृष्ण को गिरफ्तार कर लिया गया है।
यह तो होना ही था आखिर उत्तरांचल में कांग्रेस की सरकार जो बन गई हैं

Barack:When I decided to run for president

Barack Obama
Naresh --

When I decided to run for president, I had significantly fewer gray hairs than I do today.

Michelle says I've earned them, which is the nicest possible way to say I'm getting older.

In fact, I'm turning 51 in a couple weeks, and to celebrate I'm heading home to Chicago for a get-together at my house.

I'd love for you to be one of my guests.

Donate $3 or whatever you can to support the campaign, and you'll be automatically entered to join me at home in Chicago -- flight and hotel covered for you and a guest of your choice.

Chicago is where I fell in love with my wife and where our daughters were born. It's where decades ago I first started as a community organizer and where, six years ago, I first talked with Michelle about the possibility of running for president.

I'm looking forward to spending a few hours celebrating there before it's all systems go for the final weeks of the election.

Should be fun.

Thanks for a…

Delhi Govt.Shun Stubborn Attitude on BRT Corridor.Accept CRRI report otherwise apex court shall fix Delhi Govt.warns BJP Leader Vijay Jolly.

Delhi BJP Spokesman Mr. Vijay Jolly today urged Delhi Chief Minister Smt. Sheila Dikshit to shun stubborn attitude of Delhi Govt. on the BRT corridor issue in South Delhi. BJP pleaded with Delhi Govt. for not making it a prestige issue since this corridor has proved to be a pain in the ass for South Delhi citizens stated Mr. Jolly. BJP considers the statement of Chief Minister as misleading.  She is reported to have stated that “Some people are politicizing the issue of BRT”.

 Is the C.M pointing a accusing finger at NGO Nyayabhoomi which bought a petition before Delhi High Court ? Or the Central Road Research Institute (CRRI) appointed by High Court to probe the hardships and man hours lost in traffic jam on the BRT corridor questioned BJP Spokesman Mr. Vijay Jolly.

Myanmar parliament agree to discuss contentious laws Filed under: UncategorizedLeave a comment July 18, 2012 Myanmar’s parliament agreed on Tuesday to discuss amendments to a pair of controversial laws widely used to suppress dissent during the former junta’s rule.  Lower house speaker Shwe Mann confirmed that changes would be considered to the Emergency Provision Act and the colonial-era Unlawful Association Act, after a lawmaker raised the issue in parliament.  Pro-democracy campaigners have said the laws have been routinely used to detain dissidents and ethnic rebels.  While it is unclear how much support there is in parliament for changing the laws, debating their future is the latest sign of the mood for reform in Myanmar’s fledgling democracy.  The wide-ranging association act has been used to punish dissidents communicating with exile organisations and the nation’s myriad ethnic groups — with both declared “unlawful” during the army’s five-decade rul…
