of your cell phone and will request all the mobile operators to block this IMEI on
their networks.

IMEI is a number which is unique to every GSM mobile phone. It is usually found
printed on or underneath the phone’s battery and warranty card. IMEI of any set
can also be found by dialing the sequence *#06# into the phone. The IMEI number
is used by the GSM network to identify valid devices and therefore can be used to
stop a stolen phone from accessing the network. For example, if a mobile phone is
stolen, the owner can call his/her network provider and instruct them to “block” the
phone using its IMEI number. This renders the phone useless, regardless of whether
the phone’s SIM is changed.

Anushka Sharma reveals her lil secret behind fuller lips....!

 

 

The Jab Tak Hain Jaan girl’s lips are being discussed by everyone and finally we get to hear it from the horse’s mouth, what went behind that enhanced pout

Ever since Anushka Sharma appeared on Karan Johar’s Koffee with Karan, she’s been making it to the headlines. This time around the Band Baaja Baaraat girl is in the news not for her remarks about her relationship status with Virat Kohli or her equation with ex-flame Ranveer Singh, but more so ‘coz of her fuller lips. While there have been speculations that Anushka has got some work done on her lips, she finally clears the air about her new pout. So did the pretty lady get her lips enhanced? And will we have to get used to this new not-so-great looking pout of Anushka’s? Well, Anushka answers it herself.
Anushka posted on Twitter, “Hellooooo everyone !! Today I am here to talk about my lips !! Yes ! There ! I said it .. My lips!” And then she went on to write a long story.
She wrote, “As a person I find it difficult to talk about my personal life and hence have always maintained a low profile choosing to interact with you all on twitter with my random -mostly illogical thoughts seeming like the only thing I feel ok about ..that’s just who I am .. But in today’s time where PR stories and feeding people with information constantly or making appearances is a fad somewhere people like me get lost in translation or in this case translations !
Lately there has been a LOT of talk about me in this particular episode of Koffee with Karan . Mainly regarding my lips . I am here to just convey what I have to say regarding the same . I am talking about it only because this story has taken a scary direction and things have been ‘blown out of proportion’

For a short while now I have been using a temporary lip enhancing tool and that along with make up techniques ( I have learnt over the years) is the reason why there might be a change in the appearance of my lips. Having stated this fact let me very vehemently assure everyone that I have by no means gone ‘under the knife ‘ or done any kind of ‘plastic surgery’ or undergone any intrusive procedure . This was my decision and was done for the sake of my look in my upcoming film Bombay velvet,a period drama where I play a jazz singer in the 1960′s – 70′s . And it was taken from the referencing of that time.
The drastic change in my appearance on KWK is due to lot of factors put together and not just my lips . Everyone goes through good and bad days. Did I think I looked good on the KWK episode ? NO . I do feel I could have done things differently .
To put the current conjectures and reportage straight once and for all from my end – I have said this before and am saying it again .. I do not believe in plastic surgery or any other means of unnatural permanent changes to the body . I do not support it or stand for it or recommend it .
Now if someday my legs appear different and sexy to you ! Please don’t say I’ve done ‘Something’ …
Oh ! And also … Some of the ‘joker’ jokes/memes doing the rounds though a bit mean did bring a smile to my lips.

Well, even while giving the story straight, Anushka seems to be quite witty. Great sense of humour, we must say. We’re glad that she hasn’t got a lip job done and hopefully we’ll get to see her original lovely smile again, just like her Band Baaja Baaraat days. So to those who want a bigger pout (not sexier), you can use Anushka’s lil secret. But don’t forget what results it had on Anushka, her smile looked anything but stunning. Beware!

Early Twitter Investor Chris Sacca Wins Crunchie For Angel Of The Year




In the year in which Twitter went public, it’s hard to bet against one of the company’s earliest and most influential investors. Which is why it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Lowercase Capital founder Chris Sacca has won this year’s Crunchie for Angel of the Year.


Sacca put some of the earliest money into Twitter, betting on the micro-blogging platform during its Series A round of financing. But he was also instrumental in helping late-stage investors like JP Morgan and Rizvi Capital Management to accumulate a huge stake in the company through secondary sales, buying up shares from earlier investors and vested employees.
That proved to be a brilliant move, given the strength in Twitter’s stock since IPO. After pricing shares at $26, the stock popped to $45 by the end of its first day of trading. Its recent share decline notwithstanding, Twitter stock is still trading at about double its original listing price.
All of which is why Sacca edged out Baseline Ventures founder Steve Anderson, Harrison Metal founder Michael Dearing, former Square COO and current Khosla Ventures partner Keith Rabois, and AngelList founders Babak Nivi & Naval Ravikant in the category, which was presented by Google Ventures partner Kevin Rose and TechCrunch’s Josh Constine.
While Sacca’s win this year is mostly due to his involvement in Twitter, he hasn’t slowed down investing in hot startups since then. He was also an early investor in Uber, Twilio, and Instagram, for instance, and more recently put money into fancy coffee shop Blue Bottle Coffee and Ev Williams’ new publishing platform Medium.

Iran successfully test-fires two missiles: report




TEHRAN: Iran has successfully test-fired two missiles, including a long-range ballistic weapon, the official IRNA news agency reported on Monday.

The report by IRNA quoted President Hassan Rouhani as congratulating the military.

The "children of Iran successfully test-fired a new generation" of weapons, he said.

The test came a day after a group of lawmakers accused Rouhani of halting a scheduled missile exercise. It was not clear if this was the same test.

Rouhani's policy of outreach to the West and its centerpiece, a deal on Iran's disputed nuclear program, is opposed by hard-liners who accuse him of giving away too much for too little.

Iran has pursued military self-sufficiency since 1992. It produces tanks, jet fighters, submarines and warships, as well as weapons for these systems.

From time to time it announces technological breakthroughs, most of which cannot be independently verified.

The report did not say if the missiles were new designs, but the term "new generation" suggests that they were upgrades of existing ones.

It said the ballistic missile had radar-evading capabilities, but did not give a name. It said the second missile was called Bina, or "Insightful," and was laser-guided. It said it could be fired from the ground or from aircraft....

US shifts Afghanistan exit plans



WASHINGTON—The U.S. military has revised plans to withdraw troops from Afghanistan to allow the White House to wait until President Hamid Karzai leaves office before completing a security pact and settling on a post-2014 U.S. troop presence, officials said.

The option for waiting reflects a growing belief in Washington that there is little chance of repairing relations with Mr. Karzai and getting him to sign the bilateral security agreement before elections scheduled for the spring.

"If he's not going to be part of the solution, we have to have a way to get past him," said a senior U.S. official. "It's a pragmatic recognition that clearly Karzai may not sign the BSA and that he doesn't represent the voice of the Afghan people."
The military plan is the most significant example to date of how the U.S. has sought to minimize its reliance on Mr. Karzai, whose refusal to sign the security agreement amid a flurry of anti-American statements has upset Washington policy makers. The White House has said Mr. Karzai's refusal has raised prospects that President Barack Obama will order a complete U.S. troop withdrawal this year. Afghan officials had no immediate comment.

Mr. Obama and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel have signaled their displeasure with Mr. Karzai by limiting their contacts with him. The U.S. and Afghan leaders haven't held a videoconference call to discuss the war effort since the summer, officials said. Mr. Hagel visited Afghanistan in December but didn't meet Mr. Karzai. Susan Rice, Mr. Obama's national security adviser, had a frosty meeting with Mr. Karzai in Kabul in November.

The new message from the U.S. military amounts to an about-face from what some Pentagon leaders had been saying publicly for months.

In November, Mr. Hagel said that "we need to have that agreement signed by the end of the year," and added: "I think President Obama has been very clear on that, that he can't make any commitments or define any future role and troop numbers post 2014 until we have that."

Likewise, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has said repeatedly in recent weeks that the U.S. wants the Afghanistan government to sign the security agreement in matter of "weeks."

Now U.S. military leaders say a further delay is less of a concern, from their perspective. "The real challenge for the BSA delay is not associated with military planning," one senior U.S. military official said.

Senior U.S. military and administration officials said the U.S. still feels a sense of urgency to get the security pact signed because of the implications for North Atlantic Treaty Organization partners who need more time to plan deployments. "The costs go up. The complications go up," one senior military official said.

To step up the pressure, officials said, Mr. Obama is expected to ask the military to initiate planning for a full troop withdrawal from Afghanistan if Mr. Karzai doesn't sign the security pact soon, most likely before a NATO summit in Brussels this month.

By scaling the drawdown to accommodate additional delays, U.S. military leaders wanted to make sure logistical hurdles wouldn't be the deciding factor for Mr. Obama if he decides to withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

The revised drawdown schedule is based on a new plan the Pentagon presented to the White House in January that calls for keeping 10,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014 at a limited number of bases. Military commanders say the force is needed to provide a stabilizing presence after this year's election. Military officials also believe a limited advisory mission will help maintain progress Afghan security forces made in recent years.

The Obama administration has been skeptical of the value of a long-term troop presence. The new military plan would draw down that 10,000-member force in two years, with the intent of being able to remove all American troops by the end of the Obama administration except for military personnel who would work in a defense office at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.

Mr. Karzai, in refusing to sign the security pact, has said his successor should make the decision. The Afghan president has been playing what U.S. officials described as a "game of chicken" with the White House. "We're just pulling our car off the side of the road," a senior U.S. official said.

But even with additional time, officials said uncertainties remain. Voting is scheduled for April 5, but with no single candidate poised to get more than 50% of the vote, a second round looks likely. This means a new government is unlikely to take office before August.

Senior U.S. officials said the military's revised drawdown plan would allow the U.S. to wait until the end of summer, if not a bit longer, to begin a final pullout, if one is ordered.

Most of the main candidates have said they are in favor of a U.S. military presence in Afghanistan after 2014. Privately, so do some of Mr. Karzai's senior advisers. But many presidential contenders have become reluctant to openly back the BSA, say Afghan and Western officials, for fear this would alienate Mr. Karzai just as election campaigning gains steam.

Under the revised drawdown plan Gen. Joseph Dunford, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, put together in recent weeks, the U.S. military will have all equipment in place in Afghanistan by July to support a post-2014 force that includes 10,000 American troops, officials said.

The equipment is likely to include helicopters and limited numbers of mine-resistant troop transport vehicles. It would mainly be used to protect bases in the country that would be used for training and advising Afghan command units, and to house American spies and diplomats.

That means the Pentagon will go into the summer prepared to accommodate either outcome: a presidential decision to keep 10,000 troops in Afghanistan post-2014 or an order to pull all of the troops out by year-end, officials said.

The adjustments have the backing of Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. A senior military official said Gen. Dempsey's goal was to provide "more decision space to policy makers."

The biggest challenge for the U.S. military would be closing big air bases like the one in Kandahar in southern Afghanistan. In the past, military officials estimated that it could take as long as 10 months to close such bases. But commanders now say they can do the job in less time.

While the U.S. military now believes it can wait until the summer—or longer—to decide on a post-2014 presence, other NATO allies have told the Pentagon that they are more concerned about further delays in getting a security agreement.

Unlike the U.S., these countries don't have the equipment and military capabilities needed to wait until the fall to make a final decision.

Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon's press secretary, said there has been no change in the Pentagon's position that the security accord should be signed "as soon as possible," adding, "Otherwise we are going to have to start planning for a complete withdrawal."

But a senior U.S. official said the goal is to provide the White House with the flexibility to wait out Mr. Karzai's term if he refuses to sign the agreement.

"Our job is to be able to provide options," the official said. "This maintains flexibility should Karzai take a pass on the BSA. But that is not the desired outcome."

Nokia, HTC end litigation proceedings





HELSINKI: Nokia Corp. says it has settled all pending patent litigation with HTC.

The Finnish company says it has signed a patent and technology collaboration agreement with Taiwan's HTC Corp.

The deal should help strengthen Nokia's licensing offering.

Though HTC will make payments to Nokia, no financial details were disclosed Monday as the terms of the agreement are said to be confidential.

The patent dispute between the two companies was one of many in the fast-growing market for smartphones. Others embroiled in disputes of their own include market leader Apple Inc., South Korea's Samsung Electronics, Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp.

Last November, Nokia said it had extended a patent license agreement with Samsung for a further five years.

Imam charged in Australia over child marriage




SYDNEY: A Muslim cleric was Tuesday charged in Australia with conducting an illegal marriage between a 26-year-old man and a 12-year-old girl.


It follows the arrest of a Lebanese national, the “husband”, last week on child sex offences.
Police said the imam, reportedly Pakistan-born, was arrested in Sydney on Monday afternoon by the Child Abuse Squad and charged with solemnisation of a marriage by an unauthorised person.
He was granted strict conditional bail to appear in court on April 2.
Last week police revealed that the Lebanese man, in Australia on a student visa, met a 12-year-old girl in the Hunter region north of Sydney in 2013 and allegedly became involved in a sexual relationship with her.
The pair then allegedly moved to Sydney where they continued the relationship, with police claiming the man and child were married in an Islamic ceremony earlier this year.
While child marriages remain prevalent in parts of the world, in Australia 18 is the minimum age to tie the knot.
The “husband” has been charged with 25 counts of sexual intercourse with a child between 10 and 14 years and remains in custody.
Police have not laid charges against the parents of the girl, but investigations are continuing, police said.

Sixteen die as truck collides with jeeps on Indian road...



KOLKATA: Police say all 16 occupants of two jeeps returning from a wedding were killed in a head-on collision with a speeding truck on a highway in eastern India. 

Police officer Kalyan Mukhopadhyay says the victims in the jeeps were returning home early Tuesday after attending a wedding at Sahapur, a village nearly 400 kilometers (250 miles) north of Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal state.
He says 13 people died on the spot and three later in a hospital.
He added the truck driver had been arrested.
India has the world's deadliest roads, with more than 110,000 people killed annually.
Most crashes are blamed on reckless driving, poorly maintained roads and aging vehicles.

Beyonce's Surprise Album: What's The Verdict

 
 
 
On a single she previewed as part of a Pepsi ad earlier this year, Beyonce sang, "I'm a grown woman / I can do whatever I want."

The singer proved that on Friday when she released a surprise album with no fanfare.

Fans promptly lost it and the Internet was on the verge of exploding. Even fellow celebs seemed to have been left breathless.

Singer Katy Perry tweeted, "Don't talk to me today unless it's about @Beyonce THANX."

Added actress Abigail Breslin, "The new Beyonce album is so perfect wow."

The 14-track self-titled album was released exclusively on iTunes at midnight and had to be purchased in its totality. 

Singles will not be available for purchase until December 20. In addition to the songs, there are also 17 music videos.

Speaking to fans via a video on her official Facebook page, Beyonce called the project a "visual album" and said "I see music."

"It's more than just what I hear," she said. "When I'm connected to something, I immediately see a visual or a series of images that are tied to a feeling or an emotion, a memory from my childhood, thoughts about life, my dreams or my fantasies. And they're all connected to the music."

Her fifth studio album has been eagerly awaited since the success of "4," which was released in 2011. Over the past year she has hinted that something new was in the works and previewed singles including "Grown Woman," "Bow Down/I Been On" and "Standing on the Sun," which served as the soundtrack for her H&M fashion campaign.

The new album - which quickly shot to No. 1 on iTunes Friday - features collaborations with rapper Drake, singer Frank Ocean and author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and, of course, her husband, rapper Jay Z. Daughter Blue Ivy also makes a cameo.

The bold and innovative move was hailed by critics and fans. USA Today 's Korina Lopez wrote "It's a fully baked album, no filler remixes and re-released greatest hits. By sidestepping promotional blitz and gimmicks, this album could be her most personal yet."

According to Gerrick D. Kennedy of the Los Angeles Times, Beyonce, her producers and writers began work on the project last summer while they were all together in the Hamptons. The end result, Kennedy said, "is a striking collection of work that shows her torching the veil of her carefully crafted image."

"Songs on the album jump and dive between genres and are woven together with everything from spoken word and trap raps to the coos of her daughter Blue Ivy and vintage Destiny's Child footage," Kennedy wrote. "It's a lot to consume, but a revelatory look at the singer who has tirelessly calculated what she chooses to share (and it's not always much)."

Miles Marshall Lewis, the Arts & Culture editor for Ebony.com, writes that Beyonce has overshadowed some other big-name singers who have recently released new projects.

"Where pop stars are concerned, Beyoncé easily bests the latest from both Lady Gaga and Britney Spears, rivaling Justin Timberlake with a fraction of the media blitz (so far)," Lewis said. "Now that's a superpower."

For her part, Beyonce said in her video to fans that she was inspired by the legendary Michael Jackson.

"I remember watching 'Thriller' on TV with my family. It was an event, we all sat around the TV and now looking back, I am so happy I was born around that time," she said. "I miss that immersive experience."

Christmas cheer for Bollywood stars

It was a traditional and tight- knit Christmas Eve celebration for Bollywood's swish set this year. While Kareena Kapoor was spotted at a midnight mass with mother Babita and sister Karisma Kapoor and her children on Tuesday, actor Salman Khan celebrated the Christmas spirit at sister Alvira Agnihotri's Xmas party.

The fashionista that she is, Kareena made quite the style statement as she arrived at a church in Bandra wearing a glitzy gown that she teamed with a blazer.

The blazer, we later realised, was meant to cover the plunging neckline of her stylish gown as she walked into the church past a huge crowd. Babita, a former actress herself, is a practising Christian.

'Dhoom: 3' on record breaking spree worldwide, collects Rs 233 crore in 5 days

Aamir Khan's latest release 'Dhoom: 3' has taken over the world by storm.





Bollywood icon Aamir Khan's latest release 'Dhoom: 3' has taken over the world by storm as the film has collected Rs. 233.57 crore worldwide as of Tuesday (december 24). Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted: "Here's *Fri to Tue* total of #Dhoom3: India ₹ 149.46 cr + Overseas ₹ 84.11 cr [$ 13.11 mn +]. Worldwide total: ₹ 233.57 cr."

In India, Aamir Khan's 'Dhoom: 3', co-starring Katrina Kaif and Abhishek Bachchan, smashed the opening day and opening weekend collection records set by Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Chennai Express' and Hrithik Roshan's 'Krrish 3'.

'Dhoom: 3' has also broken box office records in Pakistan. In the country's largest city of Karachi, 'Dhoom: 3's box office receipts from 56 screens on its opening day was around Rs 20 million shattering Pakistani film 'Waar's record of Rs 11.4 million on its opening day.

'Dhoom: 3' was released at a time when the screening of Indian movies has come under a cloud because of an order from the Lahore High Court barring the exhibition of "illegally" imported films.
The 'Dhoom: 3' craze in Karachi has reached such heights that multiplexes are running the film on all their screens and having five shows a day on one screen - something unheard of in the Pakistani film industry.
