Tiger’s Super-Soft Superhero Powers A Flying Jatt!

STORY: Aman fears heights, dogs and industrialist Malhotra who sends merciless Raka to grab Aman’s land – but what happens when Aman discovers his own superhuman powers? Can he defeat Raka – and the power behind him?

REVIEW: So, straight away, the best thing about A Flying Jatt is the fumbling Jatt played by Tiger Shroff. Wicked industrialist Malhotra (Kay Kay) wants Aman’s family’s lands, which hold a sacred tree, for his polluting industries. Aman’s mother, Mrs. Dhillon (Amrita), ferociously opposes Malhotra – but Aman quakes before him, intimidated by most things on earth, including his own martial arts students.

Can Aman ever stand up to Malhotra and his huge henchman Raka (Nathan) – and can he fight his own fears?

Tiger does a neat job as Aman, shivering superhero who fights crime but also buys ‘do kilo lauki’ on the way home. Tiger’s evolution, from a kind but confused kid on the block, to a focused and fierce fighter, comes across well as do the film’s light moments, including Aman as ‘Sunny Leone’. Amrita Singh, literally playing a Tiger Mom, displays feisty panache, berating her son for having ‘dole-shole, no jigra’, delivering wisdom with slaps and guzzling drinks galore. The banter between her, Tiger and Aman’s fun-loving brother Rohit (Gaurav) is fresh good fun.

Sadly, as Aman’s love interest Kriti, Jacqueline adds little zing to this party – her role consists of grinning incessantly and delivering mystifying dialogues (“I like karate – it’s like, so, hah!”) in an accent that reminds you – with longing – of Katrina Kaif. Kay Kay is much too leashed – despite his ability, Malhotra’s malevolence simply doesn’t ooze through. As Raka, who literally enjoys toxic power, Nathan Jones growls, grunts and grins in a manic sort of way. These don’t make him scary – just cartoonish.

And there lies the trouble with A Flying Jatt – the full, stark shebang of a superhero versus super-dark powers never comes through. The villains remain cardboard cut-outs and the clash grows predictable. These thrills don’t chill. On the upside, for children, A Flying Jatt provides clean entertainment – with its innocence, it evokes more Haathi Mere Saathi and less cool-cat Krrish. The film takes off only because of its simplicity – a flying jatt who’s afraid of heights, a rarity in dark times of Udta Punjabs.

Kerry urges Pakistan to push harder against extremists

NEW DELHI U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Pakistan had made progress in the fight against extremism in recent months, but urged Islamabad to push harder against militants hiding within its borders as tensions with neighbourng India rise amid more violence in the disputed region of Kashmir.

“It is clear that Pakistan has work to do in order to push harder against its indigenous groups that are engaged in extremist activities,” Kerry said on Wednesday, the second day of a visit to India.

Kerry said the United States had made it clear to Islamabad that it needs to act against groups such as the Taliban-linked Haqqani network and Lashkar-e-Taiba that are suspected of operating from Pakistan to launch attacks against its neighbours India and Afghanistan.

“In fairness, the Pakistanis have suffered greatly from terrorism in their own country,” Kerry said. “All of us need to be supportive and also understanding of how difficult it is to take it on step by step.”

Without elaborating, he added: “I believe that in the last months progress is being made and the Pakistanis are moving at a greater pace.”

The United States accuses the Pakistani intelligence agency of supporting the Haqqani militants and using them as a proxy in Afghanistan to gain leverage there against the growing influence of India there. Pakistan denies this.

Pakistan army has launched military operations in the troubled North Waziristan region, which is said to be the base of the Haqqani group.

Kerry said on Tuesday that Islamabad should not feel isolated by fresh talks that are planned between the United States, India and Afghanistan next month in New York. The last time such trilateral talks were held was in 2013.

Hales savours new high in summer of ‘ups and downs’

WATCH – Hales 171 breaks England record

There are ways to move on from “a tough few weeks”, as Alex Hales summed up his recent difficulties, then there is what he managed at Trent Bridge.

In his previous 10 innings against Pakistan this season – eight in the Tests and then the first two ODIs – he had made 166 runs, plus an angry visit to the match referee’s office. In the space of 122 deliveries in Nottinghamshire, he plundered 171, England’s highest ODI innings, to break the 23-year-old record of Robin Smith who made an unbeaten 167 against Australia, at Edgbaston, in 1993.

Although Hales began this series slowly, with scores of 7 and 14, his one-day form has been impressive for much of the year. He made five consecutive fifty-plus scores against South Africa then hit an unbeaten 133 against Sri Lanka, at Edgbaston, when he and Jason Roy, who also came close to breaking Smith’s record against Sri Lanka at The Oval with 162, put on a record 256.

“It’s been a tough few weeks personally. The Test series didn’t go to plan but when it comes to the white ball in the last 12 months I’ve felt in good form,” Hales said. “I was always confident heading into this series and it’s nice to put it right tonight. The summer has had plenty of ups and downs.

“I did well against Sri Lanka but didn’t do myself justice against Pakistan. It’s nice to try and sweep that under the rug and try to move forwards.”

Hales’ place in the Test side is under scrutiny ahead of the Bangladesh tour – a trip which he admitted remained on his mind as he weighed up whether to travel amid the security situation – but while he is wary of linking his one-day runs to his five-day future, he did say how it had also taken him some time to settle in 50-over cricket.

It was not until his 11th ODI innings that he made a half-century and it was his 21st when his maiden century came, against Pakistan, in Abu Dhabi last year.

“They’re two very different games, red-ball and white-ball cricket. All I can do is try to score as many runs as I can in the remaining games and keep myself in contention for that spot. Hopefully they back me. It was a tough series but when it came to 50-over cricket it took me 20 games to cement my spot.”

Hales was given a life in his innings, on 72, when he pulled Wahab Riaz to deep square leg, only for the TV umpire to indicate, via the trial method of him calling no-balls, that Wahab had overstepped.

It was one of a litany of errors by Pakistan which began with a misfield in the opening over of the day. Captain Azhar Ali admitted it was a dire performance which allowed England to rack up a world-record 444 for 3.

“We didn’t start well in the field. Once you have three or four fielding lapses straight away it doesn’t send a good message,” Azhar said. “We didn’t set a good tone to start with. There’s no excuse for that.

“It’s basic stuff. You expect to field well in every game. We need to raise in all aspects of the game; batting, bowling and fielding. There were lapses everywhere.

“The wicket was really good and there were lots of runs in it, but 444 is a bit too much. A few no-balls and fielding lapses really cost us. Once the batsmen start going, it is hard to stop them. In the key times we missed chances, especially the wicket of Hales on 70.”

Throughout the early matches of this series the Pakistan players, including the captain, have insisted that they are better than their No. 9 ranking would suggest, but Azhar conceded it is a hard argument to sustain after such a defeat.

“I still believe that we are not that bad but we need to learn quickly otherwise we’ll prove ourselves wrong.”

They have two matches left to regain some pride, but with England in such form it is hard to see anything other than a whitewash.

U.S., India pledge deeper security and commercial ties

NEW DELHI The United States and India pledged on Tuesday to deepen security and commercial ties at the start of an annual U.S.-India strategic dialogue in which tension with Pakistan over the disputed Kashmir region will also be discussed.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker led the U.S. delegation in talks with senior Indian government officials in the capital New Delhi.

“It couldn’t come at a more important moment,” Kerry said in his opening remarks.

“In both sectors, security and economics, we have room to be able to further grow, and to expand our two-way trade and investment, but also to resolve our security problems in doing that.”

Kerry cited cyber-security and energy as areas where both countries could expand cooperation. He said the sides had reached an understanding on financing to help India meet its ambitious renewable energy targets.

“Our plate between our two nations is as full now as it has ever been,” added Kerry, who was attending the second Strategic and Commercial Dialogue that will also be the last of the Barack Obama presidency.

India’s Minister of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj, said she hoped the next U.S. president would continue the dialogue that also seeks inputs from companies, which this year included e-commerce giant Amazon and wireless technology firm Qualcomm.

India is keen to attract foreign investment to back Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” initiative while foreign investors are keen for reassurance that Asia’s third-largest economy is becoming an easier place to do business.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley briefed U.S. CEOs on a planned Goods and Services Tax that the government hopes to introduce next year and would transform the market of 1.3 billion people into a single market for the first time.

KASHMIR TENSIONS

In a meeting with National Security Adviser Ajit Doval earlier, Kerry discussed regional security challenges in South Asia, as well counter-terrorism efforts, said U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner.

A senior U.S. official said Kerry would urge Modi in a meeting on Wednesday to open talks with neighbouring Pakistan to resolve tension over Indian-ruled Kashmir.

Kashmir is at the centre of a decades-old rivalry between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan, which also rules its northern part and backed an insurgency in the late 1980s and 1990s that Indian security forces largely crushed.

Dozens of people have been killed in violent protests in Kashmir since July 8, when security forces killed a field commander of Pakistan-based Islamist militant group who enjoyed widespread support in the Muslim-majority region.

Modi has said India will not bow to terrorism and accused Pakistan of glorifying it in his annual Independence Day speech on August 15, in which he also raised the rhetorical stakes by highlighting concerns about human rights in restive regions of Pakistan.

New Delhi has rejected Pakistan’s invitation to hold talks on the future of Jammu and Kashmir, India’s northernmost state, saying it is an integral part of the nation. It also says any talks should address cross-border terrorism in Indian-ruled Kashmir – something Pakistan denies any role in.

“We have a long-standing policy of encouraging and advocating for great dialogue between the two countries on addressing areas of difference, and that continues to be our position,” a senior U.S. official said before the talks.

“But we have also underscored that combating terrorism is a high priority for the United States in its bilateral relations with all of the countries in the region,” the official added.

Afghanistan would also be discussed, the official said, amid closer ties between India and Afghanistan, which is likely to aggravate fears in Pakistan of being wedged between two hostile neighbours.

India has provided a little over $2 billion in economic assistance to Afghanistan in the last 15 years and said recently it would deliver more arms to Afghanistan.

Pink ball set for trial in Plunket Shield

Earlier plans for the pink-ball trial had included an entire round of Plunket Shield matches in the 2015-16 season, which were later scrapped due to unsatisfactory quality of lights © Getty Images

New Zealand’s domestic circuit will get its first feel of the pink ball during the 2016-17 season of the Plunket Shield, the country’s premier first-class tournament. One round of Plunket Shield matches, scheduled between March 6 and 9 in Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington, will be day-night fixtures, according to the domestic schedules released by New Zealand Cricket on Tuesday.

Westpac Stadium, Wellington will host its maiden first-class match when home side Wellington take on Otago. Eden Park in Auckland will host a match between Auckland and Canterbury, while Northern Districts will play Central Districts at Seddon Park.

According to a report on Stuff.co.nz, the pink ball will be closely monitored, and player feedback on the ball’s visibility, durability and the effect of conditions on it will be taken into account before NZC looks into the possibility of hosting a floodlit Test against England in 2018 on a drop-in pitch at Eden Park.

While the start times for the day-night matches have not been finalised yet, the session timings (local) are likely to be between 2.30pm and 4.30pm, 4.50pm to 6.50 pm, and 7.30pm to 9.30pm. The remaining matches will have the traditional 10.30am start.

There were plans to hold an entire round of day-night Plunket Shield matches in the 2015-16 season, but these were scrapped due to concerns over the quality of lights at McLean Park in Napier. NZC was also forced to ditch plans of hosting South Africa for a day-night Test in March next year.

Hamilton’s Seddon Park has already had a run of trials with the pink ball under the floodlights in the form of a New Zealand team open-wicket training session, as well as a minor association match, held in March this year.

The 2016-17 Plunket Shield will be split into two parts, and will run on either side of the T20 and List A tournaments. The first-class season begins on October 22 and goes on until the first five rounds are completed. The players will then switch to limited-overs mode to play the T20 competition between December and mid-January, followed by the Ford Trophy, the country’s List A competition, from January 15 to February 18. The schedule for the T20 competition will be announced on Friday.

The final five rounds of the Plunket Shield will then be contested from February 25 and will conclude on April 1.

This App Lets You Jailbreak Your iPhone, iPad Running On iOS 9.3.3 [UPDATED]

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on This App Lets You Jailbreak Your iPhone, iPad Running On iOS 9.3.3 [UPDATED]

UPDATE: Apple has taken down the jailbreaking app from the App Store.

Jailbreak fans can rejoice because Apple has just basically shot itself in the foot, at least in terms of its operating system. Somehow an app that allows people to jailbreak their iPhone or iPad got approved and posted in the App Store. Oops.

iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak from PanGuiOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak from PanGu

Jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad has never been easier

Let’s just preface this by saying that by the time you read this article, the app might be gone from the App Store because Apple will undoubtedly remove it as soon as word gets back around. If you’ve been wanting to jailbreak your device for a long time but have not done it because the process can be intimidating, it’s worth a check of the App Store though to see if the app is still there.

The app is called PG Client, and there’s no cost to download it from the App Store. It utilizes the PanGu team’s PP jailbreak by disguising it inside a Dribbble client. The app enables users to jailbreak compatible iPhones, iPads or iPod touches that are running iOS 9.3.3. Word from various tech sites is that PG Client actually works.

How PG Client works

The app only works on devices that are still running iOS 9.3.3, however. The newest version of Apple’s mobile operating system is iOS 9.3.5, which means that you might not still be on that older firmware version. The app does not work on iOS 9.3.4 or 9.3.5 because Apple patched the weakness the PanGu team exploited to jailbreak version 9.3.3.

If you are no longer on 9.3.3 but want to give PG Client a try, it is possible to roll back to iOS 9.3.3. To learn how to do that, just follow these two guides: How to Downgrade iOS 9.3.5 to iOS 9.3.4 and How to Downgrade iOS 9.3.4 to iOS 9.3.3. They include jailbreaking instructions, but if you’re going to use the PG Client app (if it’s still available), then the part you really need is the section on how to roll back to the earlier versions of iOS.

Again, we must emphasize that time is of the essence here. Not only are we battling the clock on how long it will take Apple to remove the PG Client app from the App Store, but the clock is ticking on iOS 9.3.3 as well. It probably won’t be much longer before the iPhone maker stops signing it, which means you won’t be able to roll back to it.
