Every time I see my films I feel there is a scope for improvement: Karan Johar 26.4.2018 General News
Karan Johar is proud of his 2010 blockbuster "My Name is Khan" but the director says if he had a chance to revisit the film he would have made some technical changes to make the movie look better. The film was about an Indian Muslim man Rizwan Khan (Shah Rukh Khan), with Asperger's syndrome who embarks on a journey to meet the President of the United States of America and attempts to change people's perception about his religion after 9/11 attacks. Johar said if he had the chance to revisit the film he would have directed the 'hurricane' sequence again. "When a film is made you do get a chance of evaluation of what is right and what is wrong. Every time I see my films, I feel there is a scope for improvement. There is a hurricane section in the film where I felt in a direction I did not do it well. It was my mistake. So, if I had (the chance to) revisit I could have changed that 15 minutes scene. "I am proud of the communication of the film, I am proud of the context of the film. I am

Europa League Preview: Atletico Madrid stand in way as Arsenal eye perfect send-off for Arsene Wenger 26.4.2018 DNA: Opinion
Arsenal's Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid tomorrow will be a clash of styles as stark as they come but Arsene Wenger and Diego Simeone are anything but polar opposites. Arsenal will flood forward at Emirates Stadium while Atletico will sit back; Arsenal will dominate possession, Atletico will counter; Arsenal will risk leaving gaps and Atletico will do everything they can to close them. "We have a style that does not vary much," Simeone said last month. "We usually play one way, with the same idea." Wenger may share little common ground with Simeone on how best to win matches but there is no coach in the game that knows better the sense of identity and attachment to a club, which the Frenchman is now in the process of curtailing. "I'm staying because this club has a future and that future is us," Simeone said at the end of last season, before extending his contract to 2020 in September. If he sees it through, he will have been in charge at Atleti for almost nine years, still 13 short of ...

Japan court upholds damages over student tsunami deaths: report 26.4.2018 General News
A Japanese appeals court today upheld a ruling awarding millions of dollars in compensation to families of children swept out to sea by the massive 2011 tsunami, local media said. In 2016, the Sendai district court ruled two local governments should pay a combined 1.43 billion yen ($13.7 million) to 29 plaintiffs -- parents of 23 children who were killed in the disaster. The victims, from the public Okawa Elementary School in the city of Ishinomaki, were among a total of 74 children who perished in rising waters after being told to wait for more than 40 minutes in school grounds with teachers, 10 of whom also died. The plaintiffs argued their children would have survived if they had been evacuated in time. The local governments appealed the 2016 decision, but on Thursday the Sendai High Court said the lower court ruling was correct, local media reported. "(The school) should have been able to forecast before the occurrence of the quake that a tsunami would reach the school," ...

Disasters could cost Asia-Pacific region $160 bn per year by 2030: UN 26.4.2018 General News
Economic losses to disasters in Asia and the Pacific could exceed USD 160 billion annually by 2030, the United Nations development arm in the region warned, urging greater innovation in disaster risk financing. The need is all the more pressing given that only eight per cent of region's losses are insured, said the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP). "The time for establishing solutions to these complex emerging challenges is now," underlined Shamshad Akhtar, the Executive Secretary of ESCAP, speaking at an event on financing for disaster risk reduction in Asia-Pacific here. The low insurance coverage has persisted in the region even though it has suffered nearly USD 1.3 trillion in losses over the last 50 years. The result is that individuals, businesses and governments are left to bear the staggering costs of natural calamities. And with extreme weather events increasing as the region's cities become more crowded, the gap could widen. Economic losses .

Bradley Cooper to receive 2018 American Cinematheque Award 26.4.2018 General News
Hollywood star Bradley Cooper will be honoured with the 32nd American Cinematheque Award. The actor will receive the award during a gala on November 29 at the Beverly Hilton, reported Deadline. The Hollywood organisation will honour Cooper for his achievements in film, which include three consecutive Oscar nominations for his roles in 2012's "Silver Linings Playbook" 2013's "American Hustle," and 2014's "American Sniper." American Cinematheque chairman Rick Nicita called Cooper "the modern-day equivalent of movie stars of Hollywood's Golden Age a leading man with the shapeshifting talents of a character actor." The award established in 1986 goes to "an extraordinary filmmaker in the entertainment industry, who is fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion picture." Last year's honouree was Amy Adams.

Geologists say North Korea's nuclear test site has collapsed 26.4.2018 General News
Research by Chinese geologists shows the mountain above North Korea's main nuclear test site has collapsed, rendering it unsafe for further testing and requiring that it be monitored for any leaking radiation. The findings by the scientists at the University of Science and Technology of China may shed new light on North Korean President Kim Jong Un's announcement that his country was ceasing its testing program ahead of planned summit meetings with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and US President Donald Trump. Nuclear explosions release enormous amounts of heat and energy, and the North's largest test in September was believed early on to have rendered the site in northeastern North Korea unstable. Chinese authorities have said they've detected no radiation risk from samples collected along the border. Calls to those departments were not immediately answered today. The data in the latest Chinese study was collected following the most powerful of the North's six nuclear device tests
