  • 7 Unrealistic Expectations Of Women That Can Cost Them Their Relationship

  • Why Rahul Dravid is not part of BCCI's advisory committee

    A significant announcement from the BCCI office on Monday had a very significant omission. Rahul Dravid's name was nowhere to be found, neither in Anurag Thakur's tweets nor in the official BCCI release that announced the return of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman - but not Dravid. Three of India's 'Fab Four' have agreed BCCI's offer to join its Cricket Advisory Committee, a move that was on the cards but feels more warm now that it's been made official - because lack of former players in the BCCI administration was always rued.

  • The ISIS economy just got a huge boost

    The US is trying to choke off the Islamic State's revenue streams in Iraq and Syria. While it's almost impossible to know the exact breakdown of the Islamic State's balance sheet, experts estimate that its biggest source of revenue is taxation. The Islamic State (also known as ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh) has claimed territory across Syria and Iraq, forcing those who stay in those areas to pay taxes to the jihadist militants, sometimes in return for government-like services.

  • Why Saudi Arabia is pumping more & more barrels of oil, despite weak prices - The Economic Times

    While the new leadership is still focused with the price of crude, it is equally attuned to how any production cuts might slow the overall Saudi economy and hurt jobs at a time when political turbulence is spreading across the region. The group of senior government officials and oil executives saw the drop in oil prices coming last year. "Is Saudi Arabia still willing to play the swing producer and juggle the whole domestic economy, refineries, power plants, desalination, petrochemicals, just to meet the expectations of either OPEC or non-OPEC producers? The answer is no, obviously not," said Sadad Ibrahim al-Husseini, a former executive vice president for Saudi Aramco, the state oil company.

NASA has big plans to land the first humans on Mars by 2035, but getting there is going to take spacecraft of giant proportions — and larger than anything the agency has ever sent to the red planet before. Enter NASA's low-density supersonic decelerator (LDSD) project, which includes a genuine, bonafide flying saucer that could be what astronauts ride down to the surface of Mars for the first time in the not-too-distant future.
