I am not afraid to be forgotten as an actor

first_imgLife changed for Gajraj Rao with the success of Badhaai ho – biggest entertainer of 2018. Overwhelmed with all the attention and love he is receiving, Rao talks about the first time he witnessed hustle-bustle of movie promotions, and how he was apprehensive about participating in the interviews. “I was never called for movie promotions before Badhaai ho, and so I was clueless about the amount of effort and time that goes in the process. It’s a crazy scene where everybody is on their toes,” he says adding, “I was not confident about all of this, until I met people who were actually interested in talking to me. Thereafter I started enjoying every part of the promotions thoroughly.” Also Read – Hilarie Burton, Jeffery Dean Morgan tie the knotRao is currently at the peak of his acting career, but he has no fears of being forgotten by the audience. “Being a human, I might feel a little bad about losing this love and popularity. Having said that, I am aware of the fact that time changes everything.” Rao feels that he is getting all the attention because his performance in Badhaai ho is still fresh in people’s mind, but “one doesn’t know for how long it will actually last,” he states. “I am willing to do something as good as Badhaai ho, but if I don’t get such an opportunity again, I won’t be disappointed. All I know is that I am extremely happy at this moment because not everybody gets to enjoy what I am experiencing right now.” Also Read – ‘Vaastav’ gave me the real sense of being an actor: Sanjay Dutt on film’s 20-year anniversaryRao tries to come up with new responses every time he is interviewed. This time, he tries to explain his point with the example of rabbit and turtle. “The story of rabbit and turtle has always inspired me in some way or the other. I want to be that turtle who walks slowly but steadily. I prefer taking my time, making right choices, and leading a happy life. I don’t want to be in a race where you celebrate the momentary happiness and thereafter live in oblivion.” The actor has many substantial roles to his credit in critically acclaimed movies like Talvaar and Blackmail, but it was Badhaai ho which brought him into the limelight. Before that, all he was applauded with was the tag of an ‘underrated actor’. Does that bother him in any way? Rao says, “I take it very lightly because people who are giving me those tags are appreciating me and my work.” Ending conversation on a positive note, Rao says, “I strongly believe in destiny. I think that certain things in life are not in your control, no matter how hard you work to achieve it. Also, to be at the right place at the right time is what drives you to success. If few years back I would have got a film like Badhaai Ho, it would have been amazing. But I am not sure that success of the movie, back then, would have turned everything in my favour.”last_img read more

Caracal joins forces with TransGlobe to create Africafocused explorer

Caracal joins forces with TransGlobe to create Africa-focused explorer by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 17, 2014 10:12 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – Two Canadian companies are joining forces to create what they call an oil “powerhouse” in Africa.Caracal Energy Inc. and TransGlobe Energy Corp. (TSX:TGL) — focused on Chad and Egypt, respectively — announced their friendly deal on the weekend.With a stock market value of US$1.8 billion, the combined company will be among the top independent energy players in Africa, chief executives of the two firms said Monday.“Within the next two years, we may not be No. 3, we may be pressing on No. 1 as an independent producer in Africa,” said Caracal CEO Gary Guidry.“This is going to be powerhouse,” added TransGlobe (TSX:TGL) CEO Ross Clarkson, who’ll be on the board of directors.The combined company will carry on under the Caracal Energy name and will be led by Guidry.Caracal shareholders will own about two-thirds of the new firm, with TransGlobe’s current shareholders owning the rest, assuming the deal closes as expected.Under the deal announced late Saturday, each TransGlobe shareholder will receive 1.23 shares of Caracal for each TransGlobe share they own.Guidry and Clarkson have known each other for some time — until this month, Guidry sat on TransGlobe’s board — and began discussing a possible merger in broad strokes about a year ago.But when it came to considering an actual deal, Guidry recused himself because of his involvement on TransGlobe’s board and investments in the company.“We saw that as a huge opportunity and we just needed the right time to do it,” said TransGlobe’s Clarkson.“We’ve been looking at Chad for at least two years and looked at several deals. But we always came back to Caracal.”And Egypt looked good to Caracal as a second platform from which to grow, said Guidry.“Egypt is a country and a set of basins that we find as attractive as any in Africa,” he said.Caracal expects its average production in 2014 to be between 31,000 and 34,000 barrels of oil per day.The increased size will help Caracal grow, the CEOs said.“Scale matters a lot,” said Clarkson.“The critical mass that it gives us as a company is going to give us access to different capital markets,” added Guidry. “We think it’s going to give us access to different opportunities and be able to grow.”Caracal currently lists in London, but another listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange is planned.Caracal used to be known as Griffiths Energy, which last year agreed to pay a $10.35-million fine for bribery related to its Chad operations. The offences took place before Guidry and a new management team took over in July, 2011 — and two weeks before founder Brad Griffiths died in a boating accident in Ontario’s cottage country.When the bribes were discovered by the new management, Griffiths essentially blew the whistle on itself. In May of last year, shareholders approved of a name change from Griffiths to Caracal.TransGlobe’s shares gained 12 cents or 1.4 per cent Monday to $8.53 on the Toronto Stock Exchange in Monday afternoon trading on the TSX. Caracal Energy (LSE:CRCL) shares dropped 6.1 per cent in London.Follow @LaurenKrugel on Twitter read more

Aigle de Bonelli une réintroduction en France nest pas envisagée

first_imgAigle de Bonelli : une réintroduction en France n’est pas envisagée Alors que deux aigles de Bonelli, une espèce de rapace menacée d’extinction, ont récemment pris leur envol en Espagne, une telle réintroduction n’est pour l’heure pas envisagée en France. Au vu de l’état génétique de la population déjà présente, elle n’est aujourd’hui pas nécessaire, affirme le coordinateur du Plan national d’actions pour l’Aigle de Bonelli.Si en Espagne, deux aiglons de Bonelli ont été récemment réintroduits dans des zones abandonnées par l’espèce, un tel programme n’est pas nécessaire en France, a affirmé à l’AFP Olivier Scher, le coordinateur du Plan national d’actions pour le rapace menacé de disparition. En 2011, 31 couples d’aigles de Bonelli ont été recensés en France, et une récente étude assure que l’état génétique de cette population est suffisamment satisfaisant pour que la réintroduction de rapaces ne soit pas nécessaire, du moins pour le moment.À lire aussiCes 18 animaux méconnus à l’aspect étonnant pourraient disparaître avant vousEn France, les aigles de Bonelli occupent toujours les même zones de la région méditerranéenne, tandis qu’en Espagne, les régions de Navarre et Majorque avait été désertées par l’espèce. Cette année, les 31 couples d’aigles de Bonelli français ont donné naissance à 27 poussins. L’année précédente, 30 couples avaient engendré 33 petits. Une légère diminution qui d’après le Plan national d’actions, serait en partie due à la présence de jeunes aigles encore inexpérimentés.Pour Olivier Scher, il est inutile et vain de réintroduire de nouveaux oiseaux alors que nombre d’habitats naturels ont été détruits en raison de l’urbanisation. “Cela n’aurait aucun sens de remettre de jeunes oiseaux dans des zones où ils ne peuvent plus s’installer”, estime-t-il.Le 13 août 2011 à 19:57 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Cancer un projet de thérapie nucléaire abandonné en Allemagne

first_imgCancer : un projet de thérapie nucléaire abandonné en AllemagneMercredi, le groupe industriel allemand Siemens a annoncé qu’il renonçait à la construction d’un centre de traitement du cancer par thérapie nucléaire en Allemagne du Nord. Mais le groupe entend poursuivre ses recherches sur cette radiothérapie encore expérimentale.Le centre de traitement du cancer par thérapie nucléaire ne verra pas le jour en Allemagne. D’un commun accord, la clinique universitaire de Kiel où il devait être installé et le groupe Siemens ont décidé d’abandonner la construction du projet. Mercredi, ce dernier a ainsi annoncé avoir signé “une lettre d’intention dans laquelle les deux parties déclarent vouloir annuler les contrats” conclus autour du projet, précisant “les travaux (déjà en cours) vont être interrompus”. À lire aussiCancer : définition, causes, types, qu’est-ce que c’est ?En vérité, ce n’est pas la première fois que Siemens renonce à un tel projet. Le 18 juillet dernier, le groupe industriel avait déjà informé de l’échec d’un autre projet similaire en Allemagne. Il avait alors indiqué que “cette technologie ne se prêtait pas à une application médicale à grande échelle.” En effet, à ce jour, la thérapie dite “nucléaire” des cancers reste encore très expérimentale. Elle consiste à bombarder les cellules cancéreuses de protons afin de les tuer. Une technique qui diffère de la radiothérapie conventionnelle où ce sont des photons qui frappent les cellules malignes. Toutefois, Siemens ne perd pas confiance en cette nouvelle thérapie, puisqu’il entend bien poursuivre ses recherches sur deux sites, à Heidelberg en Allemagne et à Shanghaï en Chine, précise l’AFP.

From shadow people to inverted cross Five signs that your house is

first_imgPixabayStories regarding demons and ghosts have always grabbed the eyeballs of people all across the globe. Even though there are no scientific bases regarding these stories, due to their eerie nature, many people love to believe in these imaginary entities, often backed by mythological concepts. However, several paranormal hunters including Ed and Lorraine Warren, the legendary ghost hunting couples strongly believe that these otherworldly entities are real. Hindu mythology also suggests that ghosts are real, and these are actually wandering human souls who fail to cross the Vaitarani river, a water body mentioned in Garuda Purana.Even though not scientifically proven, International Business Times, India, presents you five signs that indicate the presence of ghosts in your house, as per the inputs from paranormal investigators.Bizarre behaviour of petsParanormal experts believe that pets have the capability to see ghostly entities due to their impeccable eye power. As per these paranormal hunters, human eyes do not have the capacity to see ghosts due to its limitations, but animals including dogs and cats can see these entities.When pets see these entities, they will start behaving strangely, and this is one of the main indications that a ghost is roaming in your household. If you see your pet dog barking at empty air, it is a clear sign that he or she may have witnessed a demon.In a book named ‘True Tales of the Ouija Board’, author Stephen Wagner has revealed one such incident that illustrates the connection between pets and ghosts. In the book, Wagner narrates an incident where a group of girls played with an Ouija board. Later, a spirit was contacted, and it unexpectedly mentioned their dogs. The girls asked the spirit why dogs were mentioned, and the spirit replied, ”You will see”.Soon after they lost the contact with the spirit, dogs outside their house started behaving strangely, and these pets started screaming without any particular reason. Shockingly, the girls also found burn marks on one of the dogs.The sighting of shadow peopleCreepy stories regarding shadow people has perplexed people for years. The fear of the dark is common among people, and experts believe that this is one of the main reasons behind these mysterious visual hallucinations. For example, a jacket hanging on the door could be easily misinterpreted as a standing human figure in mild darkness. However, paranormal investigators believe that these dark human figures are real, and they are actually ‘shadow people’.One such case of witnessing a shadow person was recently shared to International Business Times by a content writer in Kerala. The content writer who goes by the pseudo name Jyothi revealed that she saw a dark humanoid figure multiple times in the recent past.”Yesterday night I had the experience. My husband was sleeping downstairs, as he had pain in his hand. I was not at all sleepy. Then I read some magazines and laid down to sleep. I had just dozed off then suddenly opened my eyes. Shockingly, I saw a black apparition near my cot. The dark entity was standing near my baby. I was horrified. I saw a head, just a head, but it had no face, only black mass. I have seen this body twice before,” said Jyothi.However, upon expert consultation, Jyothi came to know that the dark mass she saw was nothing but her own fear that appeared in front of her face due to mental pressure.Damaged religious symbolsThis is one of the classic evidence that your house is haunted by demons or ghosts. Several paranormal investigators had previously revealed that damaged religious symbols can be seen in houses where demons exist. Paranormal hunters from western countries have several times accounted that they saw an inverted cross (satanic cross) during their visits to haunted houses.A few years back, one such incident occurred in a Hindu Family in Kerala. A woman who goes by the pseudo name Shikha started behaving violently after her husband returned from Sabarimala, a Hindu temple. It all happened when Shikha’s husband gave her the holy prasadam (blessed food from temple). Soon, Shikha’s husband took her to a psychiatrist, and the expert revealed that she is suffering from psychosis.Even after the doctor prescribed her Aripiprazole tablets, the condition of Shikha worsened day by day. Soon, she started witnessing a soul named ‘Savithri’, a woman who lived in the 18th century. Surprisingly, Shikha started behaving like Savithri, and she even started speaking Sanskrit fluently. Upon investigation conducted by her husband along with his police officer dad using the inputs provided by Shikha, it has been discovered that a lady by name Savithri lived in Ottappalam, Kerala.The descendants of Savithri revealed that she had committed suicide, and hearing this, Shikha’s husband decided to give a shot by conducting ‘Moksha Pooja’ to Savithri’s soul. Surprisingly, after the pooja, Shikha became perfectly alright, and she has not shown any signs of possession in the past six years.However, experts have a different story to tell. As per experts, Shikha’s husband was so self-obsessed, and he failed to give sufficient care to his wife since the day of marriage. In order to make her husband care for her, Shikha’s sub-conscious mind has created a figure named ‘Savithri’. But the mystery still continues, as a person named Savithri had lived in Ottappalam in the exact timeline mentioned by Shikha during the time of possession.Psychological disturbancesThis is another common issue often faced by people in a house possessed by demons. Many people have described the sensation of the presence of someone around them when they are alone in the home.Even though psychologists consider this as the trick played by the human mind, paranormal investigators assure that these are hidden souls who try to play hide and seek game with humans.Cold spotsGhosts and demons love to stay in dark cold rooms. If you find any particular area in your home with extremely low temperature, then it is an indication that ghosts are living there.Paranormal investigators suggest that people may feel sudden nightmarish sightings in their inner mind when they enter these cold rooms.last_img read more

What the Arkema Criminal Case Could Mean for Other Companies Preparing for

first_imgEarlier this month, a Harris County grand jury indicted chemical manufacturer Arkema for the release of toxic chemicals after its plant flooded during Harvey. Harris County prosecutors allege Arkema “recklessly” released those toxic chemicals into the air as fires burned within the facility, allegedly making Crosby residents and first-responders sick.The facility took on six feet of floodwater during the storm, resulting in the failure of the plant’s power generators and causing explosions of those toxic chemicals.The indictment names the company itself, its CEO, and a plant manager. If convicted, the two men could face up to five years in prison, and the company may see fines of up to a million dollars.NPR science reporter Rebecca Hersher was recently in Houston to work on a story about this case. She tells Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty what she’s learned about what happened before and during the flooding at Arkema.She also discusses what she saw when compiling a story about the San Jacinto Waste Pits Superfund site.– / 6 X Listen 00:00 /10:40 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:center_img Share Michael Stravato for The Texas TribuneThe Arkema chemical plant in Crosby, where a pressure release after a power failure during Hurricane Harvey caused an evacuation.last_img read more

At Mideast forum officials seek worlds help

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility SOUTHERN SHUNEH, Jordan (AP) — Mideast-weary though it may be, the international community has a duty and an interest in helping the countries of the region both rebuff violent extremists and fix the refugee crisis that in part has resulted from the fight with them — that was the message coming from the regional World Economic Forum Saturday.“In Iraq and the region as a whole, the biggest challenge we face is extremism and terrorism, but this has repercussions at the international level,” said Iraqi Vice President Ayad Allawi. Because it is lawless and relatively close to EU territory in the form of the Italian island of Lampedusa, Libya has also become the favored launch point for migrants from Africa and the Middle East trying to reach safety by boat.Human rights officials at the Forum called on governments to do more to help these migrants.Antonio Guterres, the head of the U.N. refugee agency, said borders must be “open to Syrians everywhere,” including in Europe. European governments are sharply divided over the issue, including proposals to set country quotas for absorbing refugees as a way of sharing the burden more evenly. Only a few European countries, including Germany, have taken in Syrian refugees.A liberal approach, he said, would help ease the burden of Middle Eastern countries that have absorbed close to 4 million Syrian refugees. “They are the first line of defense for global collective security and they are pillars, essential pillars, for regional security,” Guterres told The Associated Press.Close to 15 million people already have been uprooted by conflicts in Syria and Iraq, Guterres said, adding that “many of those displaced live in absolute misery.” Top Stories Comments   Share   Sponsored Stories Former Arizona Rep.

(AP Photo/ Nasser Nasser) But IS recruits young people all over the region and even around the world into a life where they may well both commit atrocities in the name of religion and eventually lose their own lives.“We need to understand where the primary factors lie,” said Sarah Sewall, U.S. Undersecretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy and Human Rights. “We have neither the resources nor the time to make every country perfect. But the emphasis should be to diagnose specifically what the drivers are.”Suleiman Bakhit, a Jordanian entrepreneur who produces superhero comics in Arabic, said jihadis are selling “terrorism as heroism” to young people disaffected by the reality in their countries. “There is a lack of positive role models for our children,” he said. “We need a different kind of heroism, one that is based on narratives of hope and tolerance.”Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, urged good governance: “One of the root causes is the lack of confidence” in the political and business communities, he argued.For all the talk of the Islamic State group, there was a notable lack of clarity about the enemy. “Terrorism is not plaguing Iraq alone but is spilling over,” agreed Saleh Muhammed Al Mutlaq, Iraq’s deputy prime minister. “If it does, it will affect the stability and security of the whole world. We cannot expect that any Arab country can fight terrorism without the help of the international community.”Iraqi officials at the Dead Sea gathering said their country needed far more weapons and that Arab and Western countries should help devise a strategy for crushing the Islamic State radicals who have taken over more than a third of the country and in recent weeks made key gains near Baghdad. Some suggested they would welcome an Arab coalition on the ground, and one mused about a return of the Americans. All seemed to agree that the current strategy of mostly airstrikes wasn’t working.Meanwhile, the group is spreading tentacles and also poses “a very serious threat” to divided Libya if rival governments there fail to reach a unity deal quickly, said Bernadino Leon, the United Nations envoy to the North African country. The extremists in the country have grown from a few small groups six to eight months ago to more than 2,000 loyalists, and the Islamic State group “has a strong capacity in Tripoli,” he said. “We have to be very careful what we are asking the recipient countries to do,” said Imad Fakhoury, minister of planning for Jordan, which has taken in over 600,000 Syrian refugees officially — with the actual number almost certainly much higher and possibly double.International aid agencies and governments of refugee host countries are struggling with a growing funding gap for efforts to alleviate the crisis. They requested $8.4 billion for this year, including $2.9 billion for work inside Syria and $5.5 billion for refugees and their host countries.Both programs so far have received only about one-fifth of the needed funds, U.N. officials have said.“The richer governments have got to be persuaded to do more. The oil-rich states have got to do more,” said former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who is an adviser on the issue for the Forum. He said the funding shortfall amounted to $150 million per year.There was much discussion at the Forum about the root cause of the problem.In Syria and especially Iraq, the Muslim world’s Sunni-Shiite divide explains much. Saddam Hussein was a Sunni who kept the more numerous Shiite population at bay; the U.S.-led military invasion that deposed him in 2003 yielded a democratically elected Shiite government that was so exclusionist that many Sunnis now support anyone who attacks their new tormentors — even the Islamic State group or its predecessor, Al-Qaida.
