Shah Rukh Khan I am sad, I am angry

He was allowed to go only after Indian Embassy officials vouched for him.Shah Rukh was reportedly on his way to Chicago to attend an Independence Day parade.

Speaking to NDTV over the incident, Shah Rukh said his name popped up on their computer, and then he was taken for questioning.

“My name popped up on their computer. I was taken to a room for questioning. I was questioned for two hours,” said Shah Rukh.

The actor said that he was not even allowed to use his phone.

“This is not the first time this happened to me. I am glad my family was not travelling with me,” he added.

However, the actor denied the incident to be racial bias.

Reacting to the incident, Shah Rukh’s close friend and Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar said that he was shocked at the incident. He also said that Shah Rukh was upset over the whole episode.

However, Shah Rukh is not the first Bollywood personality to face such harassment. Kabir Khan, director of hit films like ‘Kabul Express’ and ‘New York’, was denied a visa initially because of his surname.

Talking to NDTV, Kabir Khan said that such incidents have been happening since 9/11.

The incident comes close on the heels of the ex-president APJ Abdul Kalam being frisked earlier.

PTI adds:

Reacting to the incident, Shah Rukh said that after he was stopped he sent messages to his home, his secretary and Congress MP Rajiv Shukla, who informed the Indian Mission which came to his rescue.

“I have always been worried about travelling to America. I shy away from all this. I don’t look like a terrorist going to do anything to the country,” he said.

“I did feel bad. I felt angry. I am glad my family wasn’t there. God knows what they would have done to them,” Khan added.

Other detention ordeals:

It’s not the first time that Indian actors have become victims of racial profiling abroad. Here’s a list of those who have gone through similar ordeal.

2002: Kamal Hassan was detained at the Toronto airport in Canada for his “Islamic” last name by airport officials.

2002: Megastar Aamir Khan was strip searched and interrogated at the Chicago airport.

2008: Film director Kabir Khan was also detained at least three times last year when he was shooting in United States for his film New York.

2008: Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh was also questioned because the officials thought that he wasn’t Indian.

2009: Southern superstar Mammooty was detained because his name on the passport was Muhammad Kutty Ismail.

Pakistan is to celebrate 62nd Independence Day

Nations far older than Pakistan continue to debate the meaning of loaded terms such as ‘freedom’ and ‘independence.’ In our country, that debate is particularly multifaceted. After all, even at this nation’s inception, freedom meant more than one thing: independence from British colonial rule, the option of choosing a new homeland, and the promise of living without the burden of oppression that minorities are subjected to.

Over the years, freedom has meant different things to Pakistani citizens – from Dhaka to Kashmir and beyond. But the meaning of freedom has always been negotiated and contested. Think, for a moment, of all the different contexts in which we champion our freedom: we had free and fair elections in February 2008; the lawyers’ movement agitated for a free judiciary; the freedom of our media was compromised during emergency rule in 2007; and most of the young couples who fall victim to the practice of karo kari are termed by the media as ‘freewill couples.’

Just this year, or even in the past few days, the idea of freedom has been floated and interrogated in many different contexts by Pakistani citizens. After Gojra, and similar attacks on minority communities, can we say Pakistanis are free to practice the religion they want? Just months after the Taliban assumed control of Malakand, can we say that all Pakistanis are free to educate their children and avail of any medical treatment they want?

And what of independence? What does an independent judiciary signify in a country where parallel justice systems proliferate? And what can a desire for independence mean for a nation in light of recent demands for a separate province for Seraiki speakers, or even recent comments by the Khan of Kalat?

On Independence Day, invites its readers to debate these issues to help generate a better understanding of what ‘independence’ and ‘freedom’ mean in present-day Pakistan.

The most stylish lyrics (songs) in Bollywood

Last five years have witnessed the rain of creativity in penning down lyrics. ‘Dhan Te Nan’ is one such creation of Vishal Bhardwaj which is a part of his forthcoming directorial venture Kaminey. Kaminey comes across as an interesting film with this song already topping the charts. So, we thought of bringing you a list of songs which have umpteen style quotients attached to them. Here, we go with ‘Dhan Te Nan’.
Dhan Te Nan (Kaminey)- This track definitely comes as a refreshing treat for the music-lovers who crave for originality in creative endeavours. Kaminey is slated to release in August. However, ‘Dhan Te Nan’ has already caught the attention of one and all for its unconventional lyrics and music.
Aey Ganpat Chal Daru La (Shootout at Lokhandwala)- Shootout at Lokhandwala has all the important components in it to make big at the box-office. However, music again got its audiences head over heels to watch the film and make it a big success. ‘Aey Ganpat Chal Daru La’ became one of the unique selling points and in-fact is the most stylish tracks till date composed in B-Town.

Cat Fight between Bipasha and Mugdha

Though Producer Kumar Mangat’s claims that, shoot of ‘All the Best’, in Goa went off smoothly but there was visible tension on the sets between the two ladies Bipasha and Mugdha.The story goes that Bipasha and Mugdha were constantly insecure about the length of footage being given to the other in a song. Suddenly, Bipasha felt that Mugdha couldn’t dance and began teaching the newcomer a few steps.
“Problems between the two actresses escalated during the second song, which also has them sharing screen space. They refused to speak to each other even when it was absolutely necessary and director Rohit Shetty and choreographer Bosco Caesar found it quite difficult to handle the situation,” said a source from the unit.
The animosity eventually reached a point where the two actresses flatly refused to shoot together. Mugdha initially refused to talk about the issue. On being probed further she said, “Bipasha and I were cordial with each other.Bipasha refuted the news and said, “Ridiculous, everybody was together and having fun while shooting. There were no cold vibes between anybody.”

Career is more important than kids: Aishwarya

It is said that one can never leave the taste of success when one becomes prone to it, similar is the case with former Miss World and an eminent Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.The actress has raised the speculation as she conveyed openly that career has more importance in her life than having kids.
She said, “If I want to remain in the film industry then I need to stay fit.News is that people are worried as it will be two years since Abhishek-Aishwarya’ wedding and still she is not going to add another member to the Bachchan family.
She said that she will not give birth to a child till her career is at a high. Therefore she wants to totally focus on her career right now and Abhishek also agrees with the same.

Hybrid Solar Cells Shine

As the race to create clean, renewable power heats up, the solar industry is focusing on a technology in hopes of producing utility-scale energy.
Concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) solar power -- which marries traditional solar photovoltaic technology to large-scale concentrated solar power plants -- could ramp up utility-scale solar production, advocates say, especially in niche markets. But as with all developing technologies, the effort faces significant hurdles.
CPV technology involves magnifying the sun's energy hundreds of times via lenses or mirrors and focusing it onto small, extremely efficient photovoltaic cells. By magnifying the solar energy, the technology can reduce the amount of semiconductor material needed for the photovoltaic cell.

Space Shuttle Endeavour launch delay for lightning

11 lightning strikes were reported near the seaside launch pad of space shuttle Endeavour. For that reason NASA scrubbed space shuttle Endeavour's Saturday evening launch.
NASA technicians said they will need at least another day to check critical systems. They did not found any damage after an electrical storm Friday afternoon yet. After all the testing has been completed and whether to fuel Endeavour for a possible Sunday evening launch. Liftoff would be at 7:13 p.m. if NASA attempts to launch Sunday.
Mike Moses, chairman of that team, said there were 11 lightning strikes within three-tenths of a mile of the pad, although none of them struck the shuttle, external tank or the two solid rocket boosters.
At the pad, the shuttle has an elaborate lightning protection system with sensors and wires to direct lightning away from the shuttle and its rockets.
"The lightning protection system did its job," he said.
Sunday's weather is expected to slightly better, with conditions 60 percent favorable for launch. The main concern will be thunderstorms.
Endeavour should have blasted off to the international space station in mid-June, but was grounded by potentially dangerous leaks of hydrogen gas. Repairs to a misaligned plate on the external fuel tank, which hooks up with a hydrogen vent line, solved the problem.
The shuttle and its crew are set to deliver and install the third and final piece of Japan's $1 billion space station lab, named Kibo — Japanese for hope. The first two sections flew up last year.

How Dr Shah Rukh Khan keeps his awards

On Friday, Shah Rukh Khan was presented an honorary doctorate in arts and culture by the University of Bedfordshire. Dressed in ceremonial robes, King Khan was his usual charming self. And just like his acting roles, SRK wants to take his scholarly duties seriously.

SRK mentioned that all his awards go .....
“On one wall, where I have my personal desk, where I keep my scripts, I have the Padmashri, the French honour the Malaysian honour. This one will go there. The Filmfare awards are in front of me. So I am like a megalomaniac, self-centered person who likes to be surrounded by his awards,” he said.

Death of the trackball mouse

Ever wonder what happened to the track ball that was so famous in the 90’s? People swore by the logitech “giant ball” mouse.. Sure you can still get the trackball at retailers but those seem to be getting fewer and fewer in numbers. Gamersyndrome has a great article on the “death of the trackball”. I personally never understood the trackball, even after using one I thought it was annoying and cumbersome. Any readers out there still uses a trackball mouse?

Cell Phone GPS Tracking - Is it Possible?

The modern world has a lot to offer and one is cell phone GPS tracking. Is that really possible?
Maybe you're wondering if a cell phone truly has a GPS feature. That is possible nowadays, thanks to the advanced technology of our times. Mobile communications is far more advanced today because of the GPS. Orbiting satellites in outer space can provide you with the information you need by transmitting the data to your cell phones.
If you're lost or if someone close to you is lost, you can make use of the cell phone GPS tracking system. Business people can benefit from this cell phone feature because they can now track all their business matters. The cell phone is not merely for contacting business associates and loved ones but now it can be used as a navigation tool.
Licensed companies will provide you with the information you need and you can also access detailed records for certain requests. You can also have the option to slip away from the service by selecting the 'hide' icon on your cell phone.
However, there are certain hot issues today in using a cell phone GPS tracking. Some people say that their right to privacy is being invaded.
So be sure to do business with a licensed GPS company provider so that you will know that you're safe and protected at the same time.
Issues should not get in the way if you want to get a cell phone GPS tracking service. It might be an additional cost on your part but the benefits are great.

Inflatable Tower Could Reach the Edge of Space

Researchers say that a giant inflatable tower could carry people to the edge of space without the need for a rocket, and could be completed much sooner than a cable-based space elevator.Inflatable pneumatic modules already used in some spacecraft could be assembled into a 15-kilometre-high tower, say Brendan Quine, Raj Seth and George Zhu at York University in Toronto, Canada.If built from a suitable mountain top it could reach an altitude of around 20 KM, where it could be used for atmospheric research, tourism, telecoms or launching spacecraft.The tower does a similar job as the proposed space elevator. But while the elevator envisages using ribbons woven from superstrong nanotubes - a material that is as yet non-existent - the tower would use materials that are already available.

SRK to do dangerous stunts in Don2

Director Farhan Akhtar’s sequel to Don would show SRK doing more dangerous and breath taking stunts in Don 2.

Farhan talking about SRK’s shoulder surgery says, He’s always game for the audacious. But the health problems really frustrate him.”

Priyanka Chopra who starred in the Don will also be back in Don2 albeit in a more racy avatar.

Producer Ritesh sidhwani says, “We’re very much going ahead with the original cast Shah Rukh, Priyanka, Boman Irani, Arjun Rampal and Om Puri.Only those who died in the original won’t return, obviously.”

Also, for obvious reasons, this time there won’t be a double role for Shah Rukh. What he will be be doing is, some of the most heart-in-the-mouth stunts ever done by any leading man and certainly SRK’s most audacious actioner yet.

For this Shah Rukh needs to recover from this year’s back surgery. Says a source, “This is why he allotted dates in 2009 to Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan. It requires very little physical exertion whereas Don 2 is a kick-ass role.”

We’re shooting Don 2 in Dublin .No Indian film has been shot there. We want to make sure that the sequel goes ahead of the first film. While the first part was a remake the sequel is an original script and would be much tougher to film for Shah Rukh and Farhan.”

Big Entertainment on Sony Ericsson W995 phone

It’s being dubbed as the ultimate on-the-go entertainment experience. The Sony Ericsson W995 Walkman phone certainly packs in a lot in terms of entertainment. Media Go - a new software that debuts with this phone — transfers, plays and organises entertainment media in most formats without much hassles.

The FM radio feature is also available in the W995 and premium HPM-77 headphones come with the package. In fact, here’s a gadget that doesn’t put you off listening to music on a phone. A 8GB memory stick micro comes in handy to save a huge amount of photos, video clips and audio.

If sound is the USP of the W995, the 8.1 megapixel camera comes with some bells and whistles of its own. It features a 16x digital zoom and offers photo fix, face detection and smile detection.

Digital Sky Technologies invests $200 Million in FB

By siliconindia news bureau

Bangalore: Facebook has announced that a Russian Internet-investment group, Digital Sky Technologies has invested $200 million in the company. This will give Digital Sky Technologies a 1.96 percent equity stake at a $10 billion valuation. Digital Sky is run by Russian businessman and Internet investor Yuri Milner. It has stakes in a number of Russian Internet properties like, and a Polish social-networking site.

Wall Street Journal on Friday had correctly reported that Digital Sky had offered to invest $200 million in Facebook at a $10 billion valuation. The report also claimed that Digital Sky might offer to buy between $100 million and $150 million in Facebook common stock at a $6.5 billion valuation. In the press release, Facebook informed that Digital Sky is planning to purchase at least $100 million of Facebook common stock from existing stockholders. Even though Digital Sky will get $100 million worth of share but they will not get a board seat.

Since Digital Sky already has some experience in social networking site, it was easy for Facebook to accept the offer. "One of the things that's most interesting about Digital Sky is in their portfolio they have a large number of social networks. Each is able to monetize in different ways but all are effective," said Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO at a press conference.

Warid brings green technology to Pakistan

Lahore—The green technology has finally landed in Pakistan – another first by Warid Telecom. To protect environment by introducing the environment friendly or green energy for mobile in Pakistan, Warid is in lead to introduce/deploy solar powered Macro Base Stations (BTS).

The non-hybrid site is 100% powered on solar energy thereby reducing carbon dioxide emissions and noise pollution, both of which are unfriendly to the environment. The solution also reduces pressure on Pakistan’s overall energy supply which further benefits the environment.

Environment-friendly Solar Powered Macro BTS allows Warid to extend its network reach to the rural areas of the country where there is no commercial power or frequent electric failures. Solar power system integrated with energy storage can also provide backup power during the worst power outages. Every residential PV system reduces greenhouse gas emissions as much as removing one car from the road.

In four year of operations Warid has covered 450 cities and having further ambition to aggressively expand its network coverage especially in small and medium sized cities, suburban areas, countryside, as well as in mountainous areas with poor transportation links.

Web 2.0 application developed to recommend television programmes

A group of researchers from the University of Vigo, Spain, has developed a Web 2.0 application that filters the programming schedules of hundreds of television channels to recommend programmes that viewers are most likely to be interested in, according to their tastes, timetables and other users' recommendations. This new social network is already being used by students and is freely available on the Internet.

The era of channel-hopping by television viewers trying to find a programme they like is almost over. The range of channels on offer has expanded spectacularly over recent years with the development of digital platforms, cable television and DTT, meaning it is now impossible for viewers to keep tabs on everything being shown and programmes they might want to watch.

The Largest Airplane in the World - Antonov 225

When the Wright brothers flew their first plane they were elated. They had accomplished a feat no man had ever dreamed possible. Today we have planes of varying shapes and sizes, carrying individuals, small groups of passengers, cargo and packages, or hundreds of people at a time.

Despite the advances in technology over the years, it’s still difficult to comprehend something as monstrous as the Antonov 225 staying afloat in the skies. Contrary to popular belief, an aircraft of this size does not have a very recent design history. As a matter of fact, the Antonov 225 has been trailing the skies since the late 1980’s.
The Birth of the Antonov 225
The Airplane in the World -
The Airplane in the World -

The was not designed without purpose. In the 1980’s the Soviet space program realized there was a need for a plane large enough to transport their Buran space shuttle. After it flew on December of 1988, the original plane was put on display at the Paris Air Show.

currently has a maximum gross weight of 1.323 million pounds and can carry either internal cargo weighting up to 550,000 pounds or external cargo weighting up to 440,000 pounds.
he current has completed dozens of commercial flights as well as those involved in humanitarian efforts. The plane has delivered supplies all over the world, including Iraq, and has been contracted by the United States and Canadian governments. The An-225 even found its way into the Guinness Book of World Records.
While astounding in size, there’s no doubt that the is one of the most incredible airplanes to ever take flight. Hopefully the completion of the second plane in 2010 will serve to open the doors for additional opportunities, especially as far as humanitarian and relief efforts are concerned.

Scientists Develop Plastic That Grows on Trees

Some researchers hope to turn plants into a renewable, nonpolluting replacement for crude oil. To achieve this, scientists have to learn how to convert plant biomass into a building block for plastics and fuels cheaply and efficiently. In new research, chemists have successfully converted cellulose -- the most common plant carbohydrate -- directly into the building block called HMF in one step.

Home Remedies to Avoid Swine Flu

Swine influenza is common in pigs in the midwestern United States (and occasionally in other states), Mexico, Canada, South America, Europe (including the United Kingdom, Sweden, and Italy), Kenya, Mainland China, Taiwan, Japan and other parts of eastern Asia.

Home Remedies to Avoid Swine Flu:

  • Always cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing; ideally use something disposable like a tissue. Avoid touching your face, nose or mouth too frequently with your hands since swine flu appears to be transmitted through respiratory droplets in the same fashion as the common cold.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water since swine flu like other viruses can be contracted by touching objects contaminated by the virus. It's unsure how long the swine flu virus can survive on surrounding surfaces.
  • Though alcohol based hand sanitizers don't routinely kill viruses they probably do offer some limited protection in preventing swine flu infections.
  • If swine flu infections have been medically confirmed in your area consider avoiding large public gatherings. Individuals can be contagious with the swine flu virus for several day before demonstrating any signs or symptoms of infection. Be particularly careful about indoor gatherings where air circulates poorly.
  • If you're really paranoid and don't mind looking odd then consider wearing a respiratory mask. This barrier method does offer some basic protection against infection though not all masks are created equally. Higher quality masks capable of filtering out some respiratory infections are more expensive.
  • If you start feeling ill with cold or flu-like symptoms do not go to work. Stay home and begin the usual home remedies for colds and flu. Contact your health care provider, local health department or hospital emergency room if your symptoms worsen or fail to improve for information about where to go to be screened for possible swine flu infection.

Symptoms of Swine Flu:
Just like the regular flu, the symptoms of swine flu are similar. Some of the common indications of swine flu are cough, sore throat, fever, chills, headache, body aches and tiredness. Some people affected with the disease also report vomiting and diarrhea. Lack of any unique symptom makes it very difficult to detect the presence of the virus in the body. Thus, it is always useful toconduct proper testing if any of the said symptoms are occurring.
