Despite all the differences, they stuck together and raised Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor well.

“We wish you a Merry Christmas!!!” Actors of Sony Entertainment Television’s spread their Christmas cheer this festive season!

MUMBAI: Christmas is just around the corner and it’s time for the celebrations to begin. Just like every year, television artists have prepped up for the festival as they gear up to bring in the festival of joy. Similarly, actors of Sony Entertainment Television’s most watched shows ‘Kaamnaa’ -Abhishek Rawat and Chandni Sharma and ‘Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii’ – Rohit Purohit, Additi Gupta, Alma Hussain and Raghav Dhir have already started sharing a series of cute pictures of themselves enjoying the festive spirit, wishing their fans a very happy and merry Christmas.

Chandni Sharma (Akanksha) expressing her excitement shares, “Let the festivities begin! Our team of Kaamnaa is planning a ‘Secret Santa’ on-set as a part of the celebrations and I am very excited to be a part of it. In times like these, becoming each other’s Santa and getting a chance to make someone happy is a beautiful thought. I am looking forward to surprise that one person on the set and I promise to go all out (smiles). The whole atmosphere is happy and forward looking towards a new beginning. Personally, as a tradition, I will set up a tree in my house and decorate it with a lot of love and hope and buy presents for my familyand friends.”

Abhishek Rawat (Manav) says, “The best thing about Christmas is the festive atmosphere accompanied with lots of yummy food, especially sweets! While most of us have outgrown the ‘Santa’ phase, I still feel we are each other’s santa in a way. It’s always great to receive gifts but to see a smile on someone’s face while receiving a gift is a feeling that can’t be described in words. This year, I will be a part of the Secret Santa celebration on the set of Kaamnaa. While I am curious to know what my santa will get me, I am equally stressed about being a Santa for someone. But I promise to be a good Santa… how much of a secret it will be, I don’t know (laughs). And I would like to wish all our fans and viewers ‘Merry Christmas’ and hope for a bright & healthy future for everyone.”

“My wish for everyone is to enjoy the holidays and may it be filled with peace, warmth, love and light. This festive season, my advice would to everyone would be to forget the calories and indulge in all the yummy Christmas delicacies and treats,” said Rohit Purohit who plays the role of Dr Vikrant Sinha. 

The show’s lead actor Additi Gupta who portrays role of Dr Deepika Sinha talks about how she plans to celebrate Christmas, “How I celebrate it today is not far from what Christmas has always been about for me — the coming together of friends and family. So without fail I ring in an early celebration with a Christmas party that is always at my home with my nearest and dearest friends and family”.

“Faith makes all things possible, Hope makes all things work, Love makes all things beautiful, may you have all the three for this Christmas. Merry Christmas.” Said, Alma Hussain (Dr Sia) in the show. 

“As a child, Christmas was all about the Christmas tree, Santa Claus and most importantly, gifts and friends. But this time around, the festival is more about spending time with your loved ones. I wish all my fans a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!” said Raghav Dhir as Piroz Murgiwala. 

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year

Possible relics of lost WWII US bomber, crew found in Italy

The North American B-25 Mitchell heavy bomber with a crew of six was one of 52 air losses with missing personnel in the area during WW 2, mostly during 1943

An archaeological dig in Sicily has uncovered traces of a lost World War II American heavy bomber shot down in 1943, and possible human remains that could lead to identification of five airmen whose bodies were never recovered.

The six-week dig that ended this week was carried out by a team from the Pentagon’s Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, which locates and identifies missing US military personnel around the world.

The site near Sciacca was identified in 2017 by investigators using historical records and metal detectors.

This year’s dig uncovered wreckage “consistent only to a B-25 aircraft”, said archaeologist Clive Vella, the scientific director of the expedition, contributing to hopes that any confirmed remains would be linked to the missing crew.

“We owe (their) families accurate answers,” Vella told the Associated Press Thursday.

The North American B-25 Mitchell heavy bomber with a crew of six was one of 52 air losses with missing personnel in the area during WW 2, mostly during 1943 as the Allies pushed into southeastern Sicily.

It was shot down as it targeted a camouflaged German airstrip amid olive groves and pastureland on July 10, 1943. A German military report documented the crash of a US aircraft about two km (just over a mile) from the Sciacca airport, Vella said.

One crew member was located immediately and buried in the town’s cemetery. The body was claimed in 1944 by US military officials, but the other five airmen remained missing.

In the intervening decades, the crash site “like most others in the Mediterranean region, was scavenged for metal, the land restored to its original use”, Vella said. “The scars of a crash were mostly gone.” The evidence, which includes possible human bones as well as potential remnants of the aircraft, has been transported to a laboratory in the US for examination.

Worldwide, there are more than 81,600 missing US military personnel, including 72,350 from World War 2, 7,550 from the Korean War and 1,584 from the Vietnam War. Over 41,000 of the total are presumed lost at sea.

Watch | Interview with Gong Yoo and Bae Doona, stars of The Silent Sea

0

While the announcement of any project with actor Gong Yoo is met with excitement, this December is ‘Yooltide’ for fans as they eagerly await the release of the sci-fi thriller The Silent Sea, his third project this year after Seobok  and a cameo in Squid Game.


“I am extremely grateful for all the attention and anticipation for my work, but I will admit that sometimes it does put pressure on me,” he begins. “Honestly speaking, I tend to be someone who follows my own heart and is drawn to and chooses productions that resonate with me.”

Gong Yoo answers with humility to my observation that fans have been eagerly awaiting The Silent Sea. Adapted by director Choi Hang-Yong from his 2014 short film, The Sea of Tranquility, the show is set in a near-distant dystopian future. As the Earth’s water reserves dry up, a specialist team embarks on a dangerous mission to the Moon to retrieve samples from the Balhae Base station for the survival of humanity.

 

Bae Doona plays astrobiologist Song Ji An in the film. While she is no stranger to the world of sci-fi — she has headlined Wachowski projects such as Sense8Jupiter Ascending and Cloud Atlas — the actor admits that she isn’t an expert in the genre. “Oddly, during the first decade since my debut, before Cloud Atlas, I was far from being a sci-fi expert; I was what you call a realism expert,” she laughs.

 

Although their personalities and ideologies clash in the thriller as they find themselves in space, both Bae Doona and Gong Yoo share an easy camaraderie off-screen. There is a sense of pride as they applaud the global popularity and mainstreaming of Korean content as it breaks international viewing records.

Would this translate as more Asian representation with an impact on the stories being told? Gong Yoo gives the answer some thought. “It is important to remember that there can be a bubble. In order that it is not temporary and a one-time wonder, but something that can be sustained, we must continue to create great stories from Korea. It’s a great time to be an actor.”

Daunte Wright death | Police officer Kim Potter guilty of manslaughter

0

Potter, who is white, shot and killed the 20-year-old Wright during an April 11 traffic stop in Brooklyn Center as she and other officers were trying to arrest him on an outstanding warrant for a weapons possession charge

Jurors on Thursday convicted a suburban Minneapolis police officer of two manslaughter charges in the killing of Daunte Wright, a Black motorist she shot during a traffic stop after she said she confused her gun for her Taser.

The mostly white jury deliberated for about four days before finding former Brooklyn Center officer Kim Potter guilty of first-degree and second-degree manslaughter. Potter, 49, faces about seven years in prison on the most serious count under the state’s sentencing guidelines, but prosecutors said they would seek a longer term.

Judge Regina Chu ordered Potter taken into custody and held without bail and scheduled her to be sentenced on Feb. 18.

Potter, who testified that she “didn’t want to hurt anybody,” looked down without showing any visible reaction when the verdicts were read. As Judge Chu thanked the jury, Potter made the sign of the cross.

Potter’s attorneys argued against her being held with no bail, saying she was not going to commit another crime or go anywhere.

“Her remorse and regret for the incident is overwhelming,” Potter attorney Paul Engh argued. “She’s not a danger to the public whatsoever.”

Judge Chu rejected their arguments.

“I cannot treat this case any differently than any other case,” she said.

As Potter was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs, a man shouted “We love you Kim!” Outside the courthouse, meanwhile, a group of people chanted “Say his name! Daunte Wright.” Some held yellow signs that said “guilty” in large block letters.

Potter, who is white, shot and killed the 20-year-old Wright during an April 11 traffic stop in Brooklyn Center as she and other officers were trying to arrest him on an outstanding warrant for a weapons possession charge. The shooting happened at a time of high tension in the area, with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin standing trial just miles away for the killing of George Floyd. Potter resigned two days later.

Jurors saw video of the shooting that was captured by police body cameras and dashcams. It showed Potter and an officer she was training, Anthony Luckey, pull over Wright for having expired license plate tags and an air freshener hanging from his rear-view mirror. During the stop, Luckey discovered there was a warrant for Wright’s arrest for not appearing in court on the weapons possession charge, and he, Potter and another officer went to take Wright into custody.

Wright obeyed Luckey’s order to get out of his car, but as Luckey tried to handcuff him, Wright pulled away and got back in. As Luckey held onto Wright, Potter said “I’ll tase ya.” The video then shows Potter holding her gun in her right hand and pointing it at Wright. Again, Potter said, “I’ll tase you,” and then two seconds later: “Taser, Taser, Taser.” One second later, she fired a single bullet into Wright’s chest.

“(Expletive)! I just shot him. … I grabbed the wrong (expletive) gun,” Potter said. A minute later, she said: “I’m going to go to prison.”

In sometimes tearful testimony, Potter told jurors that she was “sorry it happened.” She said the traffic stop “just went chaotic” and that she shouted her warning about the Taser after she saw a look of fear on the face of Sgt. Mychal Johnson, who was leaning into the passenger-side door of Wright’s car. She also told jurors that she doesn’t remember what she said or everything that happened after the shooting, as much of her memory of those moments “is missing.”

Potter’s lawyers argued that she made a mistake by drawing her gun instead of her Taser. But they also said she would have been justified in using deadly force if she had meant to because Johnson was at risk of being dragged.

Prosecutors sought to raise doubts about Potter’s testimony that she decided to act after seeing fear on Johnson’s face. Prosecutor Erin Eldridge, in cross-examination, pointed out that in an interview with a defense expert Potter said she didn’t know why she decided to draw her Taser. During her closing argument, Eldridge also replayed Potter’s body-camera video that she said never gave a clear view of Johnson’s face during the key moments.

Eldridge also downplayed testimony from some other officers who described Potter as a good person or said they saw nothing wrong in her actions: “The defendant has found herself in trouble and her police family has her back.”

Prosecutors also got Potter to agree that she didn’t plan to use deadly force. They said Potter, an experienced officer with extensive training in Taser use and use of deadly force, acted recklessly and betrayed the badge.

For first-degree manslaughter, prosecutors had to prove that Potter caused Wright’s death while committing a misdemeanor — in this case, the “reckless handling or use of a firearm so as to endanger the safety of another with such force and violence that death or great bodily harm to any person was reasonably foreseeable.”

The second-degree manslaughter charge required prosecutors to prove that Potter caused Wright’s death “by her culpable negligence,” meaning she “caused an unreasonable risk and consciously took a chance of causing death or great bodily harm” to Wright while using or possessing a firearm.

Under Minnesota law, defendants are sentenced only on the most serious conviction if multiple counts involve the same act and the same victim. Prosecutors had said they would seek to prove aggravating factors that merit what’s called an upward departure from sentencing guidelines. In Potter’s case, they alleged that her actions were a danger to others, including her fellow officers, to Wright’s passenger and to the couple whose car was struck by Wright’s after the shooting. They also alleged she abused her authority as a police officer.

The maximum for 1st-degree manslaughter is 15 years.

Guest teachers at Delhi Govt. schools to get remuneration hike: Sisodia

0

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisoida on Thursday directed the Directorate of Education to increase the remuneration of guest and contractual teachers at the Delhi Government schools.

The order came a day after a delegation of the “Dilli Atithi Shikshak Sangh” met Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Mr. Sisodia and submitted a representation on behalf of all guest teachers posted in the Government schools.

Mr. Sisodia asked the DoE to work out the details of how to increase the remuneration and submit a proposal. “This will enable them to live their life with dignity and continue to render their service wholeheartedly,” he said.

Mr. Sisoida said that the decision was taken “keeping inflation, increase in cost of living, and hardship of families due to COVID-19 in mind”. “In the last six years, the condition of guest teachers in Delhi has improved compared with other States,” he added.

The Government, however, did not say how much the remuneration would be increased by. There are around 22,000 guest teachers working in the Government schools who have been promised since 2015 that they will be made permanent.

Suited and booted: man who stole bags near ISBT, railway stations arrested

54-year-old used to target senior citizens

54-year-old used to target senior citizens

A 54-year-old man who used to steal luggage of senior citizens on the pretext of helping them has been arrested at the Kashmere Gate ISBT, the police said on Thursday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Sagar Singh Kalsi said the accused, Suraj Prakash, is a resident of Shalimar Garden in Ghaziabad. Mr. Prakash used to run a medical store on rent and after he incurred losses around two years ago, he resorted to crimes.

The police said a 56-year-old woman from Hisar in Haryana had on October 18 lodged a complaint at the Kashmere Gate police station. She said that after she arrived at the ISBT, the accused offered to help her and then disappeared with her bag containing clothes, a mobile phone, jewellery and documents.

The police checked CCTV footage and spotted one individual following the complainant. Mr. Prakash was arrested on Tuesday when he was roaming around the ISBT. As many as 51 bags and 26 mobile phones were seized from his house, the DCP said.

The accused is a BSc graduate from Meerut University. “He confessed to have committed around 150 thefts near the ISBT and railway stations. He claimed that he had never been arrested earlier. The facts are being verified,” Mr. Kalsi said.

Mr. Kalsi said as he was suited and booted and due to his old age, people trusted him and handed over their trolley or carry bags to get some help. With his arrest, the police said, nine cases of theft registered at the Kashmere Gate police station have been solved.

The accused said he had told his family that he worked in a ticket booking centre and the bags he used to bring home belonged to customers and those would be returned shortly, the police said.

In

recent
tete-a-tete
with
a
magazine,
actress
Raveena

recalled
how
an
entertainment
journalism
has
changed
since
she
entered
the
industry.
Raveena
who
herself
is
very
active
on
social

said
that
there
has
been
a
very
positive
change
due
to
social
media,
because
earlier,
actresses
used
to
get
body-shamed,
personally
attacked
and
rumours
were
spread
against
her
without
even
knowing
the
truth.

She
further
told
Filmfare,
“Today,
you
have
social
media
platforms
where
you
can
instantly
put
out
the
truth
along
with
proof.
But
in
those
days,
you
were
completely
at
the
mercy
of
the
editors,
who
had
printed
a
crap
story
and
once
the
headlines
hit,
they
hit
and
your
mental
health
be
damned!”

Recalling
how
false
rumours
about
an
actress’
sister
had
landed
her
into
a
hospital,
Raveena
said,
“I
remember
a
veteran
actress
whose
sister
actually
tried
to
commit
suicide
because
they
wrote
a
story
of
her
trying
to
seduce
her
own
sister’s
husband
which
was
complete
crap!
She
was
in
my
gym
and
I
remember
that
she
ended
up
in
the
hospital
because
of
an
OD
(overdose)
of
sleeping
pills
because
of
that
story.
If
I
could
go
back
and
read
some
of
the
atrocious
shit
that
was
written
about
me,
I
would
want
to
sue
the
pants
off
these
people.”

Raveena
went
on
to
add
that
what
she
found
quite
baffling
was
the
fact
that
women
journalists
who
were
supposed
to
be
‘liberated
women’
used
to
body-shame
other
actresses
left,
right
and
center.
She
further
said
that
she
never
understood
their
double
standards.
She
concluded
by
saying
that
she
was
surprised
to
see
women
doing
bad
to
other
women.
