A step Forward to Bright Future of Pakistan CPEC
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will be a ‘game changer’ for the motherland, bringing unprecedented prosperity and progress to the country.
“It (CPEC) is a project that will take Pakistan to new heights [of prosperity],” the prime minister said after witnessing the signing of agreement with China Gezhouba for Azad Pattan hydropower project at a ceremony held at PM Office on Monday.
“Pakistan can learn with the progress made by emerging economic power, China, during the last 30 years,” Mr Khan said. He said he was glad that the hydropower project was being commissioned under the CPEC. “Earlier, the CPEC was confined to road connectivity, but now other aspects of the corridor are being unfolded,” he added.
A part of CPEC, with an investment of $1.5 billion, 700.7-megawatt Azad Pattan will not involve fuel import, thus enabling the country to move towards cheaper and greener power while generating local job opportunities.
The project is located at River Jhelum and is expected to be completed in 2026.
“Time would prove the long-term benefits of CPEC, which is based on the economic cooperation between Pakistan and China,” the prime minister said, adding that Pakistan could learn a lot from the emerging world economic power, China. He expressed the optimism that the two countries would continue to benefit from the time-tested cooperation in diverse fields.
Referring to the signing of the agreement for Azad Pattan hydropower project, PM Khan said it was part of the investment to complete the power project based on clean energy. “Unlike the past, the project will not burden the people. The previous governments launched costly projects, which were made functional with imported fuel, thus increasing the cost of energy manifolds and stressing the local currency,” he added.
Mr Khan said that power projects based on imported fuel cost the country dearly, with the result that the industry could not compete with those in the neighbouring countries which were using low-cost energy. “This also caused burden on domestic consumers,” he added.
The prime minister said the hydropower generation was considered as a major source of clean energy, which was also in line with his government’s policy of ‘Clean and Green Pakistan’ and regarded as environment friendly. “It will also diminish the impacts of the global warming,” he added.
Mr Khan appreciated the energy ministry, CPEC Authority, the governments of Azad Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab for the agreement regarding the power project.
Speaking on the occasion, CPEC Authority Chairman retired Lt-Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa said the project would be completed by utilising the indigenous resources. “Work on CPEC projects continued with full force despite Covid-19 pandemic, generating job opportunities,” he added.
He said during the last 10 days, they had signed agreements for bringing in $4 billion investment and for generation of 1,800MW low-cost power. The projects would also provide jobs to about 8,000 locals, he added.
Chinese ambassador to Pakistan Yao Jing, Chinese company authorities, ministers and senior officials also witnessed the signing of the agreement.

India Spoiling Afghan Peace Process To Damage Pakistan Concerns
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Wednesday warned about ‘spoilers’ trying to undermine the peace process in Afghanistan as efforts for kick-starting the long-elusive intra-Afghan dialogue continue.
“Afghan peace process has entered a critical phase. We, therefore, need to remain alert to the elements, who are attempting to sabotage the progress,” Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told US Special Envoy for Afghan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad.
Mr Khalilzad, accompanied by his delegation, reached here from Tashkent (Uzbekistan), as part of his three-nation trip that will also include Doha (Qatar). In Tashkent, the special envoy met foreign ministers from five Central Asian States — Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyz Republic — under the C5+1 dialogue format to urge them support the Afghan peace efforts.
Mr Qureshi, while reaffirming Pakistan’s continued support for peace efforts, said: “Pakistan remains committed to working with international and regional stakeholders for sustainable, peaceful, and political resolution of the Afghan dispute.”
The foreign minister welcomed the readiness of both Afghan government and the Taliban for participation in the intra-Afghan dialogue and announcement of their negotiation teams. He said the dialogue would pave the way for lasting peace in the war-ravaged country that has been in conflict for decades.
Qureshi in meeting with Khalilzad urges ‘all sides’ to reduce violence
The Afghan government and the Taliban have also agreed on Doha as the venue for their talks. However, the delay in the release of prisoners has been holding up the start of the negotiations, which were originally scheduled to commence on March 10 following the signing of Doha Accord between the US and the insurgent group.
Afghan authorities, as per the agreement, were to release 5,000 insurgency fighters, while the Taliban were to set free 1,000 Afghan forces men in their custody. Kabul claims to have released 4,000 Taliban and the Taliban say they have freed about 700 government soldiers. There are, however, differences between the two sides over the numbers.
Head of Taliban Political Office Mullah Baradar, in a video conference with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday night, said the delay in the start of negotiations was because of slow process of releasing the detainees, and the establishment of security points by government security forces.
Another sticking point is the heightened violence. The Taliban say their fighters conducted ‘operations’ against Afghan forces trespassing the areas held by them, otherwise they have abided by the understating on lowering violence by not attacking major cities and military installations.
Mr Qureshi expressed the hope that release of prisoners would be completed soon. He further urged “all sides” to reduce violence.
There have been questions about high-profile assassinations and attacks in and around Kabul, including the June 23 killing of Afghan prosecutors and government employees, and the bombing of a vehicle carrying human rights activist Fatima Khalil on June 27.
These attacks have not been claimed by any group. Amb Khalilzad had after the killing of the prosecutors tweeted: “This attack underscores what we all know: Spoilers (both domestic and foreign) are trying to disrupt and delay.”
Mr Qureshi, in his meeting, re-emphasised the need for being alert to the sinister designs of the ‘spoilers’.
Mr Khalilzad is being accompanied on this trip by Chief Executive Office of US International Development Finance Corporation (USDFC) Adam Boehler. He is pushing Trump administration’s plans for increased regional connectivity, trade and development.
The USDFC was set up in 2018 for American investments in development projects in low- and middle-income countries around the world. Many suspect it to have been set up for countering China’s Belt and Road Initiative and its flagship project China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
Nothing was said in the Foreign Office’s media statement about what is being offered by the USDFC.
Death of Elephants in Bostwana
Hundreds of elephants have died mysteriously in Botswana's famed Okavango Delta, the head of the wildlife department said on Thursday, ruling out poaching as the tusks were found intact.
The landlocked southern African country has the world's largest elephant population, estimated to be around 130,000.
“We have had a report of 356 dead elephants in the area north of the Okavango Delta and we have confirmed 275 so far,” Cyril Taolo, the acting director of the department of Wildlife and National Parks, told AFP in a text message.
He said the cause of the deaths was yet to be established with anthrax having been ruled out.
“We do not suspect poaching since (the) animals were found with tusks,” he said.
Samples have been collected and sent to South Africa, Zimbabwe and Canada for testing.
Similar deaths were first reported in May when authorities found 12 carcasses in just a week in two villages in the northwest of the country.
The latest discoveries were flagged by a wildlife conservation charity, Elephants Without Borders (EWB), whose confidential report referring to the 356 dead elephants, was leaked to the media on Wednesday.
EWB suspects the elephants have been dying in the area for about three months.
According to the report dated June 19, 2020, “70 per cent of elephant carcasses were considered recent, having died about a month ago, and 30 per cent of the carcasses appeared fresh, ranging from one day to two weeks old”.
“There was good evidence to show elephants of all ages and sex appear to be dying,” said the report penned by EWB director Mike Chase.
Several live elephants appeared to have been weak, lethargic and emaciated, with some showing signs of disorientation, difficulty in walking or limping, EWB said.
“One elephant was observed walking in circles, unable to change direction although being encouraged by other herd members,” said the report.
The military's media wing on Thursday termed reports by the Indian media that Pakistan had deployed troops along the Line of Control in Gilgit Baltistan region as "false and irresponsible".
Inter-Services Public Relations Director General Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar, via Twitter, said there was no truth to Chinese troops using the Skardu Airbase, saying that the reports were "false, irresponsible and far from truth".
"No such movement or induction of additional forces has taken place. We also vehemently deny presence of Chinese troops in Pakistan," he added.
Indian media outlets have claimed that Pakistan has deployed "almost 20,000 additional soldiers" along the LoC in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and GB "to match Chinese deployments on the LAC (Line of Actual Control) in the east".
"The level of troops Pakistan has deployed is more than what it did after the Balakot air strikes. Pakistani radars are believed to be fully activated all along the region too," a report by Economic Times said.
Furthermore, the publication claimed that meetings have been held between China and Pakistan officials and the former is also holding talks with the Al-Badr outfit in order to "incite violence" in occupied Kashmir.
The reports come after Prime Minister Imran Khan said on the floor of the parliament on Tuesday that Pakistan had "no doubt" that India was involved in the attempted attack on the Pakistan Stock Exchange in Karachi that took place earlier this week.
India is currently engaged in a conflict with China at the disputed LAC in the Galwan Valey of the Ladakh region. Last month, 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a violent clash between the two armies, the deadliest in decades.
Pakistan has repeatedly expressed its concern that India may initiate a "false flag operation" to divert attention from its casualties in the conflict with China.
Both India and China have accused each other of instigating the clash between their forces in the valley.

Every thing has an impact on your life, doesn't matter how ordinary it may be. Mostly people you associate with, environment you live in or words you often listen and repeat on daily bais.
For exp: if a person is titled as a "mad" by his colleagues and family members starts acting as a mad person bcz after some time his own mind starts to accept that some how it's true. In the same way if a person is appreciated he makes himself better and better.
What you think what is the reason of increased anxiety now adays, ofcourse news channels are a big source of negativity, how can a person feel good after listening bad news evey hour.
So if it's happening with you, then change your attitude. Review your words you often use in daily conversation, bring some gratitude and you will feel better. Thank to Allah Almighty for every thing you have. Avoid discouraging people, Keep in touch with friends who give you confidence and keep yourself busy reading any interesting book. And try to put positive things in your head bcz your brain never remains void if you will not put positive things in, it will attract negativity due to it's easy availablility..
The minute you tell someone that you want to study law – they assume one thing right off. You want to be a lawyer. You want to practice law. This misconception has spread, tainting the view of young students who look at degrees. They assume that if they don’t want to argue in court and fight cases, then they are wasting their time.
I studied law for one year. I wasn’t struggling with it at all, it was fun i had to read, read and read all the books and notes material provided by staff, we had assignments and study for exams, I actually loved it. But later on I realized I don’t want to be a lawyer, but I want to study law as well. And no I don’t think I was wasting my time, having a law doesn’t restrict you, but it opens many roads for successful careers.
In my experience, here are some reasons why a law degree is still an excellent choice – even if you don’t want to be a lawyer.
It teaches you writing and research skills. As a law student, you need to be able to back up everything you say. It teaches you to know what you are really talking about, and how to find solid evidence to back up what you are saying.
It teaches you how to be professional. When you study law, most of your lecturers will be lawyers. Many of them practicing. And through them you will learn valuable skills, like professionalism. Lawyers understand better than anyone how to cover things up, and they will teach you simple things, like making sure all agreements are in writing, keeping copies of important stuff etc.
Your choices are wide. Law is about anything its not a narrow field. You learn about criminal acts, business dealings, politics, how institutions work, etc. This opens you up to a wide range of options when you look up for a career.
It demands respect from the world, with no offence to any other degree. The law is after all one of the most difficult degree to get into. It ranks up with medicine, architecture and finance as highly competitive degrees. As an LLB graduate you will demand a respect and have an edge that many others who have selected more generic degrees won’t.
It’s the perfect choice for me certainly, i have a secret plan about getting into law again if it works (insha’Allah). Whenever someone asks me what I want to be, I don’t have a single answer. I want to work in politics and international relations. I want to write or step in media. I would like to explore tourism as an option. Currently I’m studying really very irrelevant subject as per my future planning. The law can back me up on any of these chosen fields without limiting me to one.
Law is a fantastic option. It’s not easy, never pick a law degree thinking that it’s easy. But it teaches you skills and toughens you up, so that the world becomes your oyster.

The woman who has been created by God with all kinds of freedom but in today's modern age woman is facing a lot of difficulties. Even today she is bound by principles. Even today she cannot live her life on her own. People today are talking about a woman who is free to do whatever she wants, but they are not talking about a girl who still can't claim her rights. Why ? I am going through this ordeal myself. I can't even ask for the happiness of my right. Even today, women are facing many difficulties due to the small thinking of the big families.
There will never be new world until women
are a part of it.
By Alice Paul
Even today every girl is asked to change. Why? Even today the girl is not given her rights. I live in the same country where still women are raped, where through acid on her face,where still they are uneducated, where they are still murdered because of love marriage. It's a humble request to all, please give all right's of women and at the end i would like to say to every girl please don't let yourself down.Take a stand for yourself, do whatever you want to do in your life. Never give a chance to anyone to control you.
Love yourself First, and everything else fall into line,
you really have to love yourself to get anything done
in this world.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
Character is a set of behavior traits that define what sort of person an individual is. It determines whether a person will effectively achieve goals, be forthright in dealing with others and will obey the laws and rules of the group.
Simply put, true success is determined by not how much you make, but how you make it and how you live your life. Character and integrity are key. No matter how rich you are, if you lack character, you have nothing.
What is character? It means that you operate from a base of integrity, which means that you operate within your moral code, even when no one is watching you or there to reward you. It means that fear and guilt are temporary and occasional visitors to your life who simply appear to help you make amends when necessary but don't stay long. It means that you have nothing to hide, which in turn gives you the freedom to achieve success to its fullest.
Some people call this the "golden rule," whereby they treat others as they would want to be treated. Every day, you have a chance (or more than one) to practice this rule for yourself. For example, if at work you are tempted to steal credit for someone else's idea so that you're the one who receives the promotion, this is at best a hollow victory and not really yours. Rather, practicing the golden rule means giving credit where credit is due -- and that means taking it (with modesty) when it's yours as well. Only then will the goals you reach be truly yours and be worth your pride. On the other hand, if you step on people to get where you're going, you can only expect that the same is going to happen to you by others. In short, you get what you give.
Character building implies incorporating the values in the young ones which helps them in leading a civilized life. Giving values to your next generation is the key to their success, e. g., values of humility, mannerism, respect, etiquettes, mutual co-existence, social attitude and empathy. In the modern times, the most important thing we need is mutual co-existence. Whether we like someone or not, we must learn how to tolerate people and inculcate the same in our next generation.
Understanding and identifying the difference between right and wrong is at the base of character building. It is the fundamental of every religion in the world. If we succeed in inculcating it in the children, we have achieved the whole purpose of their upbringing. It might be achieved by religious teaching, grooming and careful observation of the children’s habits and actions. Direct upbraiding would not do much. It would result in rebellion in the child. Instead, we should devise some indirect methods. Illustrative methods, movies, storybooks, comics etc. might be used to inculcate such things in them.

Johnny Depp es interrogado sobre sus excesos - primicia.com.ve
El actor ingresó al juzgado por la entrada principal, mientas que su exesposa lo hizo por la parte trasera.
El actor estadounidense Johnny Depp, que acudió a la justicia británica para defender su reputación, se vio obligado a explicar sus excesos el martes en la apertura de un juicio por difamación contra el tabloide The Sun, que lo había presentado como un marido violento. Tres años después de su tumultuoso divorcio, Depp y su exesposa Amber Heard, se reencontraron ante la Alta Corte de Londres debido a esta demanda presentada por la estrella de Hollywood contra el periódico sensacionalista inglés. El protagonista de Piratas del Caribe reprocha al tabloide británico y a su propietario News Group Newspapers (NGN) que dieran por hecho, en un artículo publicado en abril de 2018, que había golpeado a Heard cuando estaban casados. Con el rostro cubierto por un pañuelo oscuro y gafas de sol, el actor de 57 años ingresó al juzgado por la entrada principal, mientras Heard, de 34 años, también con la cara cubierta, lo hizo por la parte trasera. El juicio debe durar tres semanas y ya en su primer día entró de lleno en la relación de la pareja. En un testimonio escrito presentado por su defensa, Johnny Depp afirmó que Amber Heard era verbal y físicamente violenta con él. La describió como una persona calculadora, sociópata, narcisista y completamente deshonesta en el plano emocional. Durante la vista, la abogada de NGN, Sasha Wass, buscó probar que Depp era colérico y violento, repasando una serie de incidentes, en particular un viejo episodio en que el actor destrozó una habitación de hotel en Nueva York causando daños por 10.000 dólares. También le interrogó largamente sobre su consumo de drogas y de alcohol. Mis experiencias con los estupefacientes y los estimulantes comenzaron a una edad temprana, reconoció la estrella, refiriéndose a una entrevista en la que había explicado haber probado casi todas las drogas a los 14 años. Depp niega ser un monstruo Ahora se le ve muy encantador y educado, con una voz muy suave, pero tiene otra faceta menos encantadora, lanzó la abogada. Su afirmación es bastante general, puede aplicarse a todos los seres humanos, le respondió el actor. Depp negó ser un monstruo como lo afirmaba Heard. Ella me gritaba a mí, yo le gritaba a ella, eso es lo que ella llamaba ser un monstruo, aseguró. No era Dr Jekyll y Mr Hyde, no creo que yo fuera el monstruo, agregó. La pareja se conoció en el rodaje de Rhum Express en 2011 y se casó en febrero de 2015 en Los Angeles. Pero se divorciaron con estruendo a principios de 2017. La actriz habló entonces de años de violencia física y psicológica, lo que Johnny Depp siempre ha negado. Durante el divorcio, Amber Heard retiró su denuncia y él le dio siete millones de dólares que la actriz entregó a asociaciones. Además de los dos exesposos, deben declarar por videoconferencia como testigos la cantante y actriz francesa Vanessa Paradis y la actriz estadounidense Winona Ryder. Dulce, atento, generoso y no violento En un testimonio escrito presentado para el juicio, Vanessa Paradis, que fue pareja del actor durante 14 años, le describió como un hombre y un padre dulce, atento, generoso y no violento. Los abogados de Johnny Depp se apoyan también en el testimonio de Winona Ryder, que tuvo una relación con Johnny Depp en los años 1990. Nunca fue violento conmigo, aseguró la actriz. Por su parte, la defensa del Sun se basa en 14 acusaciones de violencia contra el actor entre 2013 y 2016. Hasta el último momento intentó lograr que se archivara la querella por difamación, arguyendo que Johnny Depp había ignorado una orden del tribunal que le instaba a comunicar una serie de SMS en los que habría pedido drogas a su asistente. Estos mensajes fueron enviados a finales de febrero, inicios de marzo de 2015, por la estrella hollywoodiense cuando se encontraba en Australia rodando una película, poco antes de un presunto incidente que Heard describió como un suplicio de tres días de agresiones físicas. Depp ha presentado también una querella por difamación contra Heard en Estados Unidos. Ten la información al instante en tu celular.
