The police in Arunachal Pradesh’s Lohit district arrested an unnamed man for robbing a bank after he was told his account had insufficient balance.The man visited the State Bank of India’s branch in Wakro to withdraw cash from his account on Monday. He allegedly damaged the cash counter with a machete and took ₹3.5 lakh from the cashier’s drawer after finding out that he did not have enough money left.Male members of some tribes in Arunachal Pradesh carry machetes as part of the tradition.The police registered a case on Monday afternoon after Abhijeet Das, the bank’s branch manager, lodged a complaint.“We tracked the man down to his residence and recovered the money from him,” Thomas Pertin, officer-in-charge of the local police station, said.The man had attacked the police team with his machete but was soon overpowered.

Mumbai, Jul 4 (PTI) Actress Sonakshi Sinha wishes educational institutions across the country implement self defence techniques for young girls.The “Dabangg” star says self defence mechanism should be taught to girls from a very young age as it is extremely important in todays times.”Schools, colleges, should incorporate self defence, martial arts as a subject for girls from a very young age. I feel it is very important in todays day and age,” Sonakshi told reporters here.The actress, who will be seen as a fearless woman in her upcoming film “Akira”, feels girls should stand up for themselves.”When you see the film, there are a lot of instances in it, showing a lot of girls put through (difficult situations) and how you should be able to handle it yourself.”I hope wish and pray that when people see the film they understand (that), especially girls,” she added.The 29-year-old “Rowdy Rathore” actress quipped that when she was in school, nobody messed with her because she was a gundi.”In school and college, I was myself a gundi so no one used to mess with me. They used to look at me and say Dont go near her,” she added.Directed by AR Murugadoss, “Akira” is a remake of 2011 Tamil film “Mouna Guru”. The action-thriller features filmmaker Anurag Kashyap in a negative role and also stars Konkona Sensharma.In the film, Sonakshi will be seen doing high-octane stunts.

I did train for three-four months before the film started and while we were shooting,” she said.”It was difficult. I went through a lot of injuries and it was painful as hell. You wake up soar every single day and some part or the other is always hurting but it was all worth it.”The film is set to release on September 2. PTI JUR NRB PSH RYS
India’s outgoing chairman of the selection committee, Sandeep Patil, today expressed satisfaction over the team’s results and with the “bold and tough” decisions he made during his four-year stint with Team India. (You end up losing friends as a selector: Sandeep Patil)Patil, however, said the only sad part about being a selector is that “you end up losing some of your friends”.”We have taken some bold and tough decisions looking at the future of Indian cricket. We are very happy at the end of our term that the team is doing well in all three formats and I wish the next committee all the best. (Stuart Binny, Shardul Thakur dropped from India’s Test squad vs New Zealand)”The only sad thing about being a selector is that you end up losing some of your friends,” Patil said after the selection panel, headed by him, picked the India squad for three-Test home series against New Zealand.This was the last squad picked by Patil, who was appointed to the post following the sacking of Mohinder Amarnath in September 2012.On being asked how soon the ODI captaincy will be handed over to Virat Kohli, the former India middle-order batsman said it will be decided by the next selection panel. (New Zealand wary of Ravichandran Ashwin threat, says coach Mike Hesson)Earlier on Saturday, the BCCI invited applications for the post of national selectors, setting in place a strict qualification criteria. The board has set September 14, 2016 as the deadline for applying for the posts.advertisementPatil also stated that there was no outside interference in selection matters during his tenure.”The board has taken some great decisions during my time. We are happy with the roadmap the BCCI has drawn with Rahul Dravid taking over as coach of the juniors and Anil Kumble the seniors.”We also leave at a time when there is big pool of players to choose from, in all formats,” he said.He further said the team would do well against the touring New Zealand side.”We have always done well at home and I am sure we will do well against New Zealand. Hope we also do well outside India,” he said.Patil skirted the question on whether Sachin Tendulkar was told in advance to call it a day before the hurriedly arranged two-Test series against the West Indies in 2013.”There are some matters between the selectors and BCCI which should remain confidential and cannot be revealed,” he said.
Former Australia batsman Mark Waugh has picked the top three batsmen he would be looking forward to in the upcoming World Cup beginning on May 30 in England and Wales.The batsman which Waugh picked was India skipper Virat Kohli. “Definitely Virat Kohli,” Waugh told cricket.com.au. “He’s No.1.”Kohli, regarded by many as the greatest ODI player ever, will be playing in his third World Cup and would be rearing to go and lead the team to title victory.England’s hard-hitting batsman Jos Buttler was Waugh’s second choice. “Jos Buttler, I’d have him at No.2 in the top three,” he said.Buttler has been in amazing form in the last four years, not only in ODIs but all three formats of the game. Earlier this month, he smashed a 50-ball century against Pakistan in Southampton after taking the West Indies’ attack apart for 150 from just 77 balls in February.The third batsman on Waugh’s list was David Warner.”Aaron Finch at his best is right up there, so is David Warner,” said Waugh. “I’ll go with David Warner.”Warner, who made a comeback to cricket after serving a one-year ban for his involvement in the Sandpaper Gate, has been in tremendous form off late. In the IPL 2019, he scored 692 runs in 12 matches he played for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Warner last played an ODI for Australia 18 months ago, Waugh is expecting fireworks from the swashbuckling opener.The World Cup will begin with the opening match between hosts England and South Africa on May 30.advertisementAlso Read | Unfancied Sri Lanka head to World Cup 2019 with hope for miracleAlso Read | We can change some perceptions: Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza ahead of World Cup 2019Also See
Kieran Trippier wants to stay in England, with the Tottenham defender generating talk of interest from Serie A giants Juventus and Napoli.The 28-year-old is among those who could be heading out of north London this summer as Mauricio Pochettino is finally freed to make adjustments to his squad after two windows of no movement.Trippier concedes that his performances in 2018-19 were not good enough, with his standards slipping on the back of a memorable World Cup campaign with England.

Everybody’s got a decision to make, no matter what.“Obviously this club has been very good for me over the last few years but I’ll enjoy my summer, come back in pre-season and that’s when I’ll sit down with the manager and have a talk about my future.“I see a lot of speculation about me not being here.

zoom Liquefied petroleum gas shipping company StealthGas has signed a number of time charter agreements as it improved its earnings in 2017.The company said that it secured work for two of its 2018-built LPG carriers, namely the Eco Arctic and the Eco Ice, which were handed over to the company last month, increasing the company’s asset base to USD 1.1 billion. The ships each received two-year time charters with a major trading house, lasting until February 2020.Additionally, a three months’ time charter was agreed for SealthGas’ 2017-built LPG carrier, the Eco Frost, to an oil major until May 2018, while a two months’ time charter was inked for its 2008-built carrier, the Gas Imperiale, to an international trading house until April 2018.Other deals included a number of consecutive voyage charters, which were signed for the company’s 1995-built Gas Marathon, the 2001-built chartered-in Gas Cathar and Gas Premiership, and for the 2015-built LPG carrier, the Eco Galaxy.With these charters, the company has contracted revenues of approximately USD 196 million. Total anticipated voyage days of its fleet are 65% covered for the remainder of 2018.StealthGas unveiled the developments as part of its fourth quarter and full year 2017 financial report, in which it said that its revenue for the periods increased. StealthGas delivered a revenue of USD 38.4 million in the quarter, up from USD 36.5 million reported in the same three-month period of 2016. For the full year, the company’s revenue increased to USD 152.3 million from USD 136.5 million seen in 2016.“The fourth quarter of 2017 was mixed. On the one hand we are pleased that our core market of small LPGs shows clear signs of improvement, which should continue to leverage our earnings…On the other hand the sale of four of our older vessels and the weakening of the tanker market affected our revenue growth, somewhat obscuring the improved revenues for our core fleet,” Michael Jolliffe, Board Chairman, said.Nevertheless, excluding impairment charges, the company’s annual results demonstrated clear improvements both in revenues and profitability.
Atlantic Canada is another step closer to launching a privately managed venture capital fund to support high-potential companies in the region. Nova Scotia announced today, Oct. 10, that Patrick Keefe will manage the fund that will invest in emerging companies from the clean technology, life sciences, information technology and other high-growth areas. Mr. Keefe has more than 15 years of investment and entrepreneurial experience. He has spent the last several years with Innovacorp, most recently as vice-president of investment, overseeing early stage venture capital activities. “Patrick Keefe is the right person to take this fund’s development to the next level,” said Premier Darrell Dexter. “We want new and innovative companies to have access to the funds they need to take full advantage of the big opportunities on the horizon, like shipbuilding and the Maritime Link. Over the next few months, Mr. Keefe will work to raise more capital and start making investments in the new year.” Investment decisions will be made by the fund manager, and will be based on maximizing the return on investment for the fund’s partners. Nova Scotia and New Brunswick have each committed $15 million to the fund, Prince Edward Island has added $2.5 million, and private company Technology Venture Corporation will contribute $5 million. “This is such a remarkable time for Atlantic Canada,” said Mr. Keefe. “The start-up scene is vibrant and the technology community is flourishing. The region has had some recent home runs with Q1 Labs, GoInstant and Radian6, and investors from all over are taking notice. “The regional fund will build on the momentum we have, and help a host of new companies grow and succeed. I’m pleased, and excited, to take on the role of fund manager.” Innovacorp, Nova Scotia’s venture capital and technology commercialization corporation, has been working on behalf of the provinces to set up the fund and secure additional investors. Mr. Keefe will continue to work with the provinces, private-sector partners, institutional investors and the federal government to ensure the companies with the most potential can compete.
OTTAWA – A growing number of Canadian exporters were saying the NAFTA talks were having a negative impact on their operations even before the trade dispute with the United States escalated in recent weeks.A survey done for Export Development Canada found 28 per cent of the 1,000 exporters polled said the NAFTA talks had a negative impact on their Canadian operations.That was up from 23 per cent in an earlier survey.“Current sales may be riding high, but trade uncertainty is having an impact,” EDC chief economist Peter Hall said in a statement Friday.“Nearly one in five exporters say that NAFTA talks have negatively affected their investment plans. This reluctance to invest could severely restrain Canada’s export capacity in the years ahead.”The survey was done from April 18 to May 11, before the United States ended an exemption for Canada on the global steel and aluminium tariffs it had put in place in March.Since the tariffs went into place on Canadian metal exports at the end of May, Canada has imposed retaliatory tariffs on steel and aluminium coming from the U.S. as well as a wide range of consumer goods, while the U.S. has threatened additional tariffs on the auto sector.The bi-annual survey found overall trade confidence increased to 76.5 per cent from 73.5 per cent in the previous questionnaire which was done at the end of last year.The increase came as 73 per cent of Canadian companies indicated their export sales will increase over the next six months compared with 56 per cent in the previous survey.More businesses said their sales to the U.S. increased over the past six months with 46 per cent reporting an increase compared with 36 per cent.The EDC survey also noted that rising interest rates were having a negative impact on the sales of a larger share of exporters at 30 per cent compared with 21 per cent in the previous survey.The Bank of Canada raised its key interest rate target to 1.5 per cent this week, prompting Canada’s big banks to raise their prime lending rates.In raising the rate, the central bank said that despite the trade dispute it still projects Canadian growth to average just slightly above its potential with inflation already on target.It expects the downside of the trade policies to be largely offset by higher oil prices and the stronger U.S. economy.
Rabat – Security services arrested three individuals in Casablanca and Oujda who were attempting to join the terrorist organization of IS in Libya, the Ministry of Interior said in a statement.The three recruits of IS in Libya, originally from Sidi Bennour, were arrested on the basis of meticulous information provided by Morocco’s domestic intelligence (DGST), added the statement.The IS in Libya is increasingly attracting foreign fighters as it attempts to stretch in the Maghreb as part of the global “jihadist” strategy adopted by IS led by its self-proclaimed caliph Abou Bakr Al Baghdadi, noted the statement. The three individuals were in contact with a group of Sidi Bennour natives who were brought before justice on December 13, 2014 after they failed in joining terrorists in Libya, the Ministry said.With MAP
The UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry’s latest report, Rule of Terror: Living under ISIS in Syria, paints a devastating picture of the methods used by ISIS – also known as ISIL or Da’esh – concluding that the group “seeks to subjugate civilians under its control and dominate every aspect of their lives through terror, indoctrination, and the provision of services to those who obey.” Based on over 300 first-hand accounts from victims and eyewitnesses, the Commission’s report provides a unique insight from Syrian men, women and children who fled or who are living in ISIL-controlled areas. The paper was also informed by the publications, photographs and video footage distributed by the armed group. “Those that fled consistently described being subjected to acts that terrorize and aim to silence the population,” said Paulo Pinheiro, Chair of the four-member Commission said in a press release today, which urges international action to hold the perpetrators of such actions, including ISIL commanders named in the report, accountable possible “crimes against humanity.”The report says that executions, amputations and lashings in public spaces have become a regular occurrence. The display of mutilated bodies has only further terrorised and traumatised Syrians, in particular children.“With the capacity and means to attack the civilian population on a large scale, ISIL has carried out mass victimization against civilians, including segments of the population on the basis of gender, religion and ethnicity,” declared the report. According to the report, ISIL is aiming to exclude Syrian women and girls from public life. Women have been killed, often by stoning. ISIL regulations dictate what women must wear, with whom they may socialise, and where they may work. Distressing accounts were collected of forced marriages of girls as young as 13 to ISIL fighters. The paper also details ISIL’s horrific abuse of Yazidi women and girls, some of whom, after being abducted in Iraq in September 2014, were taken into Syria and sold into sexual slavery.Children have also been the victims, perpetrators and witnesses of ISIL executions. The armed group employs education as a tool of indoctrination, aiming propaganda at children to foster a new generation of recruits. In Raqqah city, children are gathered for screenings of videos depicting mass executions of Government soldiers, desensitising them to extreme violence, the report says. Where ISIL has occupied areas with diverse ethnic and religious communities, minorities have been forced either to assimilate or flee.“There is a manifest pattern of violent acts directed against certain groups – notably Christians, Shias and Kurds – with the intent to curtail and control their presence within ISIS areas,” said Commissioner Vitit Muntarbhorn. The group has also attacked journalists and activists trying to communicate the daily suffering of those living under its yoke. Scores have been abducted, disappeared, tortured and executed.The paper also details ISIL’s killing of captured belligerents during its recent military assaults, including the killings of over 200 captured soldiers from Tabqa airbase in Ar-Raqqah and the killing of hundreds of members of the Al-Sheitat tribe in Dayr Az-Zawr, both in August 2014.As an armed group bound by Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions and customary international law, ISIL has violated its obligations toward civilians and persons hors de combat, amounting to war crimes, the Commission said in its report. “The commanders of ISIS have acted wilfully, perpetrating these war crimes and crimes against humanity with clear intent of attacking persons with awareness of their civilian or hors de combat status,” said Commissioner Carla del Ponte. “They are individually criminally responsible for these crimes.”The paper recommends engaging international accountability mechanisms, including the International Criminal Court (ICC), to hold individuals, including ISIL commanders, responsible for war crimes and crimes against humanity.The Commission emphasized that the lack of a political process had allowed extremism to fester and it was urgent to reach a sustainable solution to the ongoing armed conflict in Syria through an inclusive and Syrian-led political process. The Commission, which comprises Mr. Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro (Chair), Ms. Karen Koning AbuZayd, Ms. Carla del Ponte and Mr. Vitit Muntarbhorn, has been mandated by the United Nations Human Rights Council to investigate and record all violations of international human rights law. The Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic was established on 22 August 2011 by the Human Rights Council through resolution S-17/1 adopted at its 17th special session with a mandate to investigate all alleged violations of international human rights law since March 2011 in the Syrian Arab Republic.
“It is a victory for all the Iraqi people, and the United Nations stands ready to assist the provincial and national authorities in responding to the needs of the thousands of displaced,” Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Iraq, Ján Kubiš, said in a press release issued earlier today.“Civilians’ safety and security must be protected in line with fundamental human rights principles and humanitarian law,” he continued.Amid ongoing fighting between Iraqi Government forces and ISIL and continuing sectarian tensions across society, the Middle Eastern country is facing a period of immense peace and security challenges.The country is also being tested by fiscal constraints and the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq, also known as UNAMI and which Mr. Kubiš heads, is currently working actively with the authorities to set up a Recovery and Reconstruction fund, while the challenge posed by supporting persons displaced by conflict also remains huge.Overall, 5.2 million people need humanitarian assistance, of whom 2.25 million are displaced and 235,000 are refugees from Syria, with the population of the Kurdistan Region having increased by 30 per cent because of the influx.In the press release, Mr. Kubiš also added his call for the Iraqi Government to ensure that all inhabitants of Tikrit who fled from ISIL can safely return to their homes and urged for much needed humanitarian assistance to be provided without delay.Meanwhile, UNAMI also released March casualty figures for Iraq, which reveal that a total of 997 Iraqis were killed and another 2,172 were injured in acts of terrorism and violence during the month. The number of civilians killed was 729 (including 42 civilian police), and the number of civilians injured was 1,785 (including 98 civilian police).Baghdad was the worst affected Governorate with 1,290 civilian casualties (362 killed, 928 injured). Diyala suffered 51 killed and 75 injured; Salahadin suffered 34 killed and 48 injured, and Ninewa 20 killed and 15 injured.According to information obtained by UNAMI from the Health Directorate in Anbar, the Governorate suffered a total of 939 civilian casualties (237 killed and 702 injured). This included 58 killed and 391 injured in Ramadi and 179 killed and 311 injured in Fallujah.“I am shocked to see that Iraqis continue to bear the brunt of appalling numbers of casualties caused by successive waves of violence, which are threatening with additional suffering and misery,” Mr. Kubiš said in a separate press release.“The United Nations calls upon the Government of Iraq to do all it can to ensure that civilians’ safety and security is protected in line with fundamental human rights principles and humanitarian law”, the UN envoy further stated.
OSU football coach Urban Meyer disputes a call made by the Officials during the game against Michigan on Nov. 26 at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes won 30-27. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorTexas became a popular state for recruiting for Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer this year, with five players making the long journey to Columbus from the Lone Star State. The 2017 recruiting class is a testament to Meyer’s ability to reach far across the nation.This season, Jeffrey Okudah, Baron Browning, J.K. Dobbins, Kendall Sheffield and Elijah Gardiner all came to OSU as part of 21 new players for the Scarlet and Gray.The Texas to Ohio pipeline started for Meyer and company back in 2013, when the newest OSU football players from the state were Dontre Wilson, Mike Mitchell and J.T. Barrett. While all three players were former four-star recruits, each has traveled a much different path in college.Wilson, a once highly touted player who had the speed and hands to play both wide receiver and running back, suffered a foot injury that kept him out of contention for an extended period of time. His career with the Buckeyes is now over, and never really lived up to the hype that surrounded his initial signing.Mitchell never panned out with the Buckeyes, transferring to Texas Tech before winding up with Southeastern University, which is a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics program. Barrett, who is returning for his redshirt senior season, is poised to break nearly every OSU passing record in the books.In 2014, OSU snagged now-redshirt sophomore guard Demetrius Knox from Texas before no commitments from the state of Texas for the next two years. Then, everything clicked.Meyer’s success in Texas might have been a product of a staff full of quality recruiters as well as the team’s accomplishments. Appearances in the College Football Playoff two out of three years since its inception seems like an enticing factor for any incoming freshman.For Browning, it was all about the opportunities presented by a program like OSU. “I would say probably the reason everyone is leaving Texas is because everybody wanna be great, so they’re going to where they feel like they can grow the most,” he said on National Signing Day.However, Okudah said the tight-knit bond between the group was the key that led to the success in Texas for OSU.“The coaches, they had come out and recruit us, they did a pretty good job,” he said. “They might of got a little bit lucky, because we were all pretty close before so when they got one of us,I would go tell Baron, ‘Did you hear this? Did you hear that?’ and he would say, ‘Yeah.’ It made it easy for us to be comfortable so far from home.”All incoming players from Texas agreed Columbus is a city where they can grow both on and off the field, and where the dreams of winning a national championship and one day playing in the NFL are all very real possibilities. The Texas natives and the rest of the Buckeyes will get a chance to show off their skills on April 15 in the Spring Game. With multiple starting spots open on either side of the ball, any one of the five could find their way into the starting lineup. On top of that, there seemed to be one more thing they all could agree on — a longing for Whataburger.“I haven’t had (Whataburger) in a long time,” Dobbins said “So I’m kind of missing it.”
In light of the recent spate of deaths on the roadways, the traffic department of the Guyana Police Force (GPF) has made a special plea to road users particularly motorcyclists to be keen in their operation on the road.The traffic department said it could not sit idly by while persons continue to lose their lives senselessly on the roadways.Over the past few days, three motorcyclists lost their lives among a total of five road deaths. Traffic Chief Deon Moore said there is really no reason for persons to be losing their lives in this fashion. He said it is recognised that most of these accidents occur at midnight or any time after that hour. He said in three of the most recent deaths, the one at Goed fortune occurred at 3am while the one at Better Hope occurred after 11pm.On Sunday, 27-year-old biker Cleon Perreira of Buxton, East Coast Demerara (ECD), died on the spot after he collided with a car just after 23:00h on the Better Hope Public Road. Early Saturday morning, another motorcyclist was killed after he was struck by a minibus in the vicinity of the Goed Fortuin Public Road, West Bank Demerara (WBD).42-year-old Joseph James of Walter Terrace, West La Penitence, Georgetown, was returning home from a party when the accident occurred.On Monday, police were called in to investigate the death of 50-year-old Feroze Khan of Yarrowkabara, Soesdyke/Linden Highway, who succumbed to injuries sustained in an accident on the Land of Canaan Public Road, EBD that morning. Khan was pulled out of his vehicle after it had collided with another and was taken to the Diamond Diagnostic Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.“These timings are when the road is not too congested, not so busy. The weather condition was not foggy or rain was not falling so the condition was not bad”. He said motorists need to drive at a speed that could bring their vehicles to a stop if a situation should present itself.“At nights you should drive your vehicle at such a speed in accordance to the distance that you can see. If your vision is blurred, pull in a corner, if a light has blind you, pull in a corner”, the official pleaded. He said “it is better for you to wait a few seconds than to try to force to where you want to get and never meet there”.Traffic Chief of the Guyana Police Force, Dion MooreMoore said so far for the year, some 15 motorcyclists lost their lives. At the end of last year there were 23 motorcyclists who lost their lives. He said the police had committed at the beginning of this year to see a radical reduction in the amount of lives lost on the road by asking them to wear their safety helmets.“Many times you see them having the helmets, but having it strapped on the rear seat of the motorcycles. It is a dangerous practice. Motorcycle helmets afford you protection to your body in the event of any eventuality, for you to reduce the amount of injuries you would sustain”, the Traffic Chief said.Revealing the traffic statistics. Moore said there has been a decrease in all categories of accidents, with 62 fatal accidents as against 83 this time last year, a 23 per cent decrease. In terms of persons dying as a result of the road accidents, this year saw some 68 as against 88 this time last year, a decrease of 23 percent. Six children lost their lives last year. So far for this year there has been only one.

Stay on target You know Daleks and Davros and Missy the Master, Angels, and Silence hell-bent on disaster. But do you recall the most underrated Doctor Who villains of all?Each week, I will dig into the depths of the Whoniverse to examine one rejected, misjudged, or altogether forgotten big bad. Just in time for Halloween, here’s one monster that will chill you to the bone.These dimensional devils are not wanted on this plane (via BBC)BONELESSFirst appearance: “Flatline” (2014)—season 8, episode 9Home planet: N/ADoctor: TwelfthCompanion: ClaraWhen people start transforming into static, two-dimensional images, it’s time to panic.On their way home to London, the Doctor discovers something is draining energy from the TARDIS, which materializes (much to Clara’s chagrin) in Bristol—120 miles from the capital.Clara steps out to investigate, and while she is being chatted up by a local graffiti artist completing community service, the Doctor finds himself trapped inside the shrunken TARDIS.“Oh, my god. That is so adorable,” a bemused Clara says, face close to the toy-sized police box.“It’s not adorable. It’s very, very serious,” the Time Lord asserts. “Something nearby is leeching all the external dimensions.”Just one small problem, Doctor… (via BBC)Something that is the Boneless (so named by the Doctor in a fit of fury)—aliens from a two-dimensional universe trying to understand the third dimension.Trapped (for unknown reasons) in our 3D world, the creatures have no distinct way of communicating with Earthlings. So, they do the next best thing: suck items and people into their element for study, leaving only stagnant images of their victims.“The impressions we make in two-dimensional space. That was them reaching out, attempting to talk,” the Doctor explains to Clara. “At which point they moved into flattening and dissection. Trying to understand. Trying to emulate. But here’s the big question. Do they know they’re hurting us?”This is one mural Rigsy won’t take credit for (via BBC)Absorbing abilities and becoming more powerful with each human guinea pig, the Boneless eventually morph into 3D simulacra of its kills. The hoard of undulating creatures—sort of flickering like a video chat with poor reception—attack Doctor Oswald Clara, her new friend Rigsy, and a crew of misfits.Meanwhile, the Twelfth Doctor, still stuck inside the miniature time machine, activates the TARDIS’s siege mode (further miniaturizing the box to resemble the Pandorica), in hopes of protecting himself (and his ship) from impending doom. Ever-clever Clara—taking charge of the situation with the Doctor’s sonic screwdriver and enemy-combatant playbook—tricks the Boneless into repowering the TARDIS, restoring it to its normal size and freeing our hero to confront the invaders.With great power comes great responsibility—which Clara handles well (via BBC)“I tried to talk. I want you to remember that.
