An injured Hizbul Mujahideen militant was found in a Srinagar hospital and the owner of a car, used for the attack in Shopian, held on Friday. A police spokesman said the authorities came to know that the Hizb militant, Asif Ashraf, a resident of Shopian’s Krawoora, “has been admitted with a bullet injury at Srinagar’s SKIMS hospital.”“Preliminary investigation suggests he was injured in the incident at Ahgam on Thursday when militants from a car opened fire on an Army patrol. The police are investigating,” said the spokesman.

GLENDALE, ARIZONA – DECEMBER 23: Head coach Sean McVay of the Los Angeles Rams looks on during the NFL game against the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium on December 23, 2018 in Glendale, Arizona. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Way before Sean McVay was one of the top coaches in the NFL, he was just a young kid trying to climb the coaching ladder. At one point, that led him to look to the old Big East for a job.In a recent episode of Barstool Sports’ ‘Pardon My Take’ podcast , McVay revealed that he applied for a position on Doug Marrone’s staff at Syracuse back in 2009. The position was for a quality control coach during Marrone’s first season with the Orange.McVay didn’t get hired, but it sounds like that was more his choice than Marrone’s. Instead of heading to Central New York, he took a job with the UFL’s Florida Tuskers as a quality control and wide receivers coach.Via Syracuse.com: “I said, ‘You know, you actually refused my resume,’ ” McVay said, recounting a recent get-together with Marrone and other coaches. “But in all actuality, I was very close to going and working with him if the United Football League opportunity didn’t present itself.”The type of role McVay applied for at Syracuse typically doesn’t pay much and is a short-term opportunity, so he wouldn’t have been with the Orange long had he accepted. Still, it would have been cool for Syracuse to add him to its impressive list of head coaches who once paid their dues there.A decade later, the 33-year-old McVay is coming off a Super Bowl appearance in his second season as head coach of the Los Angeles Rams. Despite the loss to New England on the big stage, McVay’s Rams should once again be considered a top contender in the NFC.This offseason, a number of NFL teams searching for head coaches tried to find the ‘next Sean McVay’, in some cases hiring anyone they could who had ties to the young offensive savant.

Lucknow: A State Bank of India (SBI) field officer was found shot dead at his home in Uttar Pradesh Bijnore district. According to reports, the victim, Chaitanya, had been transferred to Bijnore from Gorakhpur about two months ago. He was currently posted at the SBI’s Sahanpur branch in Najibabad. The murder came to light after the house owner knocked on the door and found the flat locked from inside. He immediately called the police. Chaitanya was shot in the head with a licensed pistol. The house was locked from the inside and his body was lying in a pool of blood in the washroom, with the pistol near his legs, the police said. Najibabad SHO Sanjay Panchal said: “He was living in a rented house. Prima facie, it could be a case of suicide. The pistol is licensed. But we are yet to ascertain if it was his own or he had borrowed it from someone else. “There is no suicide note. We have informed his family in Champaran, Bihar.”
United Nations: In a huge diplomatic win for India, the United Nations on Wednesday designated Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a “global terrorist” after China lifted its hold on a proposal to blacklist him.”Big, small, all join together. Masood Azhar designated as a terrorist in @UN Sanctions list. Grateful to all for their support,” India’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations Syed Akbaruddin tweeted. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange frameworkA UNSC designation will subject Azhar to an assets freeze, travel ban and an arms embargo. China removed its hold on the proposal, which was moved by France, UK and the US in the Security Council’s 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee in February just days after the deadly Pulwama terror attack carried out by the Pakistan-based terror outfit JeM. A veto-wielding permanent member of the UN Security Council, China was the sole hold-out in the 15-nation body on the bid to blacklist Azhar, blocking attempts by placing a “technical hold” and asking for “more time to examine” the proposal. Also Read – Trio win Nobel Medicine Prize for work on cells, oxygenWhen asked whether China has lifted the hold, Akbaruddin said that “yes, done.” The sanctions committee makes its decisions by consensus of its Members. In recent days, there had been indications that China is likely to come around and will lift its hold on the Azhar proposal. Beijing had said on Tuesday that the vexed issue of designating Azhar as a global terrorist by the UN would be “properly resolved.” Beijing put the hold on the proposal on March 13, derailing yet another attempt to blacklist the JeM chief. The proposal was the fourth such bid at the UN in the last ten years to list Azhar as a global terrorist. Keeping up the international pressure to designate Azhar as a global terrorist, the US, supported by France and the UK, moved a draft resolution directly in the UN Security Council to blacklist the Pakistan-based terror organization’s head. Beijing lifting its hold is a massive diplomatic win for India, which had relentlessly pursued the matter with its international allies. There had been sustained international pressure on China, particularly from the US, to remove its objection to Azhar’s listing. Hectic discussions between New Delhi, Washington, New York and Beijing had ensued after the March 13 hold by Beijing as it was clear that India would not blink. PM Narendra Modi Wednesday said the UN decision is a big success for India’s efforts to root out terrorism and proved that the country’s voice can no longer be ignored on the global stage.

At the time of his wife’s death Simon said he was “crushed with indescribable pain” as he struggled with his sudden grief.Many fans had been asking him on social media when he would return to work, but he said it was “with a heavy, but peaceful heart”, he was stepping down after 13 years at the broadcaster when the current season finishes next month.He wrote yesterday: “I’m doing it for Ethan. On that first morning after she went I remember Ethan coming up to me in the lounge and through his tears he said these words ‘Daddy, you know every weekend you go away and do the football, and I spend the weekend with Mummy, what do I do now?’ And they have stuck with me ever since.

He said: “More recently, I have enjoyed watching football again, but the flames of passion I once had for it are, for now at least, gone. I hope one day they will relight again, but at the moment there’s barely a flicker.”Managing director of Sky Sports Barney Francis said Simon had shown “courage in opening up” about the challenges he faced.He added: “Simon has suffered an unspeakable loss and we have done everything we can in our power to ease the burden he is carrying. I fully support his decision. He is part of our family and always will be even now as he searches for his next path.”If there is some small positive he can take from this experience it is the courage he has shown in opening up, and for others facing the same challenges I know they will take comfort from his actions and his words.” “He’s lost his mum, for him so much has changed, I can’t always be with him 24/7 but what I have no choice in, is I have to put him first.”I need to spend the next few months working out with him how we move forward. What’s going to work for him, what isn’t?”The former Blue Peter presenter added he had not been able to enjoy watching football since Gemma’s death but hoped to return to presenting in the future.

It’s the one playing on their mind the most and for the last five months it is a question I have had to wrestle with.
A political action committee associated with the local Democratic Party has stated that it will disband after being targeted by a conservative activist who has filed hundreds of complaints against similar organizations and politicians across the state.The activist, Glen Morgan, called the move to dissolve an attempt to dodge the state’s campaign finance laws, which he said several other Democratic-affiliated political committees he’s targeted have also tried to do.He said he’s confident that the courts won’t allow it.“They are going to realize that this is not an option for them,” he said. “They are going to follow the law.”Rich Rogers, the chair of the Clark County Democrats, declined to comment on the matter. According to a statement from the party, though, the political action committee affiliated with the party called the 49th Legislative District Democrats has decided to formally deregister.The statement blames the decision to deregister on Morgan, a Thurston County resident who serves as the executive director of the Citizens Alliance for Property Rights, who last year filed a lawsuit and complaint with the Public Disclosure Commission, the state’s election monitor, alleging that the committee failed to properly report its finances.The statement accuses Morgan of having “weaponized Washington’s well-intended but seriously flawed” campaign finance law. It also says that volunteer-run political committees, such as the 49th Legislative District Democrats, “have found it impossible to operate without being repeatedly accused of having failed to comply with all of the requirements of the law.”

Back in 2018, when asked if a fan image of Deadpool and Captain America (Chris Evans) was real, Reynolds responded, “It’s real in my heart.”In a statement issued Tuesday, a Sony Pictures spokesperson said much of the Spider-Man news has “mischaracterized” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise, and that it was the decision of Disney, owner of Marvel Studios, that Feige no longer continue with the Spider-Man films.Other Marvel and Sony actors, including Holland himself, have refrained from commenting on the news.

See Thor’s Transformation in Hilarious ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Set ClipMarvel Spotlight Plays Turn High Schoolers Into Superheroes Stay on target Since Marvel’s been busy with the upcoming releases of both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we haven’t heard much from Thor: Ragnarok. The movie releases later this year, but all we’ve seen of it is that Thor has short hair and a new love interest. That is, until this morning. Marvel released a trailer for the God of Thunder’s third film, and it looks to have everything you’d want in a Thor movie. The teaser promises huge battles, Thor’s goofy enthusiasm and Tom Hiddleston looking pretty.Have we really gone this long without Marvel using “Immigrant Song” in one of these movies? The trailer reads like someone saw Guardians of the Galaxy and decided to steal some of that movie’s tricks. That’s not a bad thing. The 1970 classic rock anthem, while maybe a bit overused in pop culture, fits the character and adds some fun to a series that can be a little overdramatic at times. Thor’s reaction to seeing The Hulk at the end of the trailer is a reassuring indication that this movie won’t take itself too seriously. Director Taika Waititi, of the hysterical vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows, has left his mark all over this movie, from the looks of this teaser.Cate Blanchett looks great and scary as Hela, the Asgardian goddess of death. Right at the outset, we see her destroy Mjolnir, which makes things interesting. What is Thor without his hammer? That should be a fun question for this movie to wrestle with. Especially once he’s forced to fight in an intergalactic gladiator tournament headed by Jeff Goldblum. That’s another exciting thing about this teaser. I don’t care how the rest of this movie is; I’m here for anything starring Jeff Goldblum and his weird laugh.And then there’s Loki. Yes, he’s back and looking like he just walked out of a shampoo commercial. Don’t think I didn’t notice his long, flowing locks contrasted with his brother’s new buzz cut. The trailer doesn’t actually give much us much information as to what his role in this movie will be. We know he’s been impersonating Odin since the last movie. Will he be found out? It looks like he’ll be a part of the battle against Hela, but then we see him next to Jeff Goldblum at the tournament. Is he trying to win Thor’s freedom, or is there something else going on? He has a very small role in the trailer, but I think we’ll see quite a lot of him in the movie. All of Tumblr might revolt if we didn’t.
Stay on target Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world. https://t.co/nyvm5vtH9k— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 14, 2019In a statement released by New York State, Gov. Cuomo took a different stance, lamenting the “small group [of] politicians [who] put their own narrow political interests above their community.”“The New York State Senate has done tremendous damage,” he said in a statement. “They should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”For now, Amazon will not reopen the HQ2 search. Instead, it remains focused on its Virginia expansion. There is no word on whether the New York cancellation means a larger home base in Northern Virginia.More on Geek.com:Amazon Boss Jeff Bezos Accuses National Enquirer of BlackmailThis Squirrel Eating an Egg Roll Is New York’s New Furry HeroNeil Gaiman’s ‘Good Omens’ Fantasy Series Is Coming to Amazon on May 31 Amazon has scrapped its controversial plan to build a New York corporate campus in Queens.Announced in 2017, an east-coast HQ2 was to be split into two sites—one in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., and the other in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens.Each location would employ some 25,000 workers.Virginia officials jumped on board, signing off on a plan that included $750 million in state incentives.The New York proposal, however, provoked backlash from activists who objected to giving one of the world’s most valuable companies, run by the world’s wealthiest man, almost $3 billion in subsidies and tax breaks.And while Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio supported the idea, other city and state officials criticized it.“The commitment to build a new headquarters requires positive, collaborative relationships with state and local elected officials who will be supportive over the long term,” Amazon said in an announcement.“While polls show that 70 percent of New Yorkers support our plans and investment,” the statement said, “a number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City.”The tech titan, though “disappointed to have reached this conclusion,” praised New York’s “incomparable dynamism, people, and culture.” Amazon also applauded Cuomo and de Blasio for their enthusiasm and encouragement—a sentiment that feels a bit awkward in hindsight.

If Amazon can’t recognize what that’s worth, its competitors will. https://t.co/VLU17ULrUo— Mayor Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) February 14, 2019“We gave Amazon the opportunity to be a good neighbor and do business in the greatest city in the world. Instead of working with the community, Amazon threw away that opportunity,” de Blasio tweeted this week.“You have to be tough to make it in New York City,” he said, placing the blame on Amazon, rather than his dissenting constituents who seemingly drove the company out of town.Among those dissenters—Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who took to Twitter Thursday to celebrate the news.
