2. Deep ImpactI want to live in a world where Morgan Freeman is president and Frodo rides a motorcycle, even if that world does have to get hit by a comet. 9. After Effects City Destruction TutorialFrom Video CopilotAfter Effects wizard Andrew Kramer created this helpful video tutorial that explains how to composite destruction effects into live-action footage. 4. The Day After TomorrowRoland Emmerich loves to destroy the world. In The Day After Tomorrow, Emmerich forces Dennis Quaid and Jake Gyllenhaal to face every single dangerous weather phenomenon that’s ever existed — ice, floods, tornados — pretty much all at once. 3. The Day AfterThe Cold War was a simpler time. Before global warming, terrorist attacks, and zombie plagues, all we had to worry about was good ol’ fashioned nuclear annihilation. The made-for-TV classic The Day After was so effective in its depiction of nuclear war that it famously depressed Ronald Reagan and made him rethink nuclear proliferation. He wrote about it in his diary! 6. Tornado VFX – After Effects FumeFX – BreakdownFrom Martin Mirol’aAbout creating this effect, Mirol’a said, “small tornado i created in 3Ds Max 2011 and FumeFX.

KnowingIn this 2009 crypto-techno-supernatural thriller, Alex Proyas directed Nicolas Cage in a plot about time capsules and past and future natural disasters and then some aliens show up… Admittedly, I’m a little unclear on the specifics.

Hasn’t the Statue of Liberty been through enough? Let’s talk about it in the comments below! 5. TwisterSpeaking of tornados, even though the destruction in Twister is a little less widespread, the film still helped usher in the golden age of big screen disaster flicks – Also known as the 90s. San Andreas proves that the blockbuster tradition of urban destruction is alive and well. Check out these classic scenes from big-budget disaster movies!It’s the summer blockbuster season, and that can only mean one thing: At least one major metropolitan area is going to end up in rubble before autumn arrives. This year’s bringer of big city disaster is San Andreas and the film’s release spells bad news for the California coast. Of course, as most of the clips below will show, the folks of the Golden State have dealt with this kind of thing before.Since we all know that nobody is watching these movies for the rich character development, we’ve just singled out “the good parts” for your enjoyment. And if you’ve ever wanted to create your own apocalypse from the comfort of your home, we’ve thrown in some appropriate video tutorials that will allow you to do just that.1.

Considering the threats coming from China and also, considering the killings of jawans on Pakistani border, India needs, a full time Defence Minister, said Congress Rajya Sabha MP Shantaram Naik in a letter e-mailed by him to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.Mr. Naik’s strongly-worded letter, which was released here on Saturday, further said to the Prime Minister, “And your focus in celebrating GST tax regime and fool the people just as the government did during demonetization, will not help the nation.”“Chinese threat is looming on Indo – China border, Indians have been denied permission to visit Kailash Mansarovar and, dangerous construction activities are going on Indo-China border. Chinese are reminding us of 1962 war in order to focus on the alleged failure of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s policies, just as BJP leaders are doing in India,” Mr. Naik’s letter said and added, “Unfortunately, BJP leaders in India and Chinese, appear to be on same page”.Absence of a full time Defence Minister, with one bureaucrat, Mr. Ajit Doval, running the Defence Ministry, has further encouraged the Chinese to believe that India cannot do anything beyond empty rhetoric, Mr Naik says.Mr. Naik, in his letter also blamed former Defence Minister and Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar for his public statements over Defence and appealed to the Prime Minister to refrain his former Defence Minister from playing into the hands of the enemy by making statements in Goa such as, “Defence Ministry was in shambles before I took over”. “Situation , on both China and Pakistan borders, is going to worsen further if we do not have a full-fledged Defence Minister as, in case of any further encroachments on China border or increase in killings of our army jawans at the hands of Pakistanis, the present Defence Minister will have an easy excuse that he was extremely busy managing GST tax regime, but, nation will, undoubtedly suffer,” Mr Naik warned.
The Supreme Court’s decision to postpone hearing in the Ayodhya title suit case on Monday resulted in the Sangh Parivar and its affiliates demanding that the Union government bring in an ordinance for the construction of a Ram Mandir on the disputed site. Right-wing groups indicated that they would intensify their movement for the temple, triggering speculation if the issue would dominate discourse in the build-up to the Lok Sabha election.The Opposition parties, while reposing faith in the court, targeted the BJP for “attempting to politicise the issue”.Vishwa Hindu Parishad working president Alok Kumar said the adjournment fortified its stand that the solution to the “Ram Janmabhoomi issue is not eternally waiting for the hearings of the appeals pending now for several years”.The VHP will intensify its campaign for the enactment of a law in the winter session of Parliament, Mr. Kumar said.Arun Kumar, RSS prachar pramukh, said that if the SC could not immediately decide the case, the Centre should bring a law to “remove the obstacles and hand over the Ram janambhoomi to Shri Ramjanambhoomi Nyas.” “We have supported all the decisions of Pujay Sant and Dharam Sansad regarding the movement for construction of the temple and will do so in future,” said Mr. Arun Kumar.Union Minister Giriraj Singh said, “The patience of Hindus is coming to an end. I do not know what will happen if they lose patience.”AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi dared the Modi government to bring in an ordinance, even as he lashed out at the BJP-RSS for politicising the issue and speaking in different voices.“Why don’t they bring it? Let them do it.Every time they are threatening that they will bring an ordinance.You are in power, I challenge you to do it,” said Mr. Owaisi.The Hyderabad MP also poked fun at Mr. Giriraj Singh’s remark, saying the Modi government should appoint him attorney-general. “The nation cannot be run on the whims and and desires of an individual or religion. It is run by the Indian constitution,” he said. Congress leader P. Chidambaram accused the BJP of raking up the issue before every election to try and ‘polarise views’ on the Ram Mandir. “This is a familiar story. The Congress party’s position is that the matter is in the SC, everyone should wait until the SV decides questions before the SC. I don’t think we should jump the gun,” said Mr. Chidambaram.Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav also walked the middle-path and said that his party and the people had full faith in the SC. “People honour the decision of the SC. And those don’t follow the SC, they don’t believe in democracy,” said Mr. Yadav.Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said a lot of people wanted an early hearing. He also said the BJP also did not link the Ram Mandir issue to politics.UP deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya said the SC decision did not send a good message.Zafaryab Jilani, member of the AIMPLB, said the SC decision was an “eye-opener” to those who think they can influence the court decision.
Mumbai, Aug 25 (PTI) A nation-wide inter-schools table tennis team event is to be conducted on August 29, the birthday of hockey wizard Dhyan Chand which is celebrated as the national sports day, across 27 states. Depending on the number of entries, the event would be carried on for two more days to identify the particular states schools champions, it was announced today by former national champion Kamlesh Mehta, director of 11Even Sports which is organising the event under auspices of the respective state bodies and the Table Tennis Federation of India. The winning inter-school champion of each state would progress to the national inter-state finals, set to be organised between December 9-11 at a venue to be finalised by the middle of next month. “In all probability Indore would play host to the event,” said Mehta who explained that while the north eastern states of Nagaland, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura will not be represented in this unique venture, Kerala and Meghalaya would conduct it at a later date. “The idea is to do it every year. We will be supplying balls, T-shirts etcetera,” said three-time Olympian Mehta at the Khar Gymkhana, venue for the event in Maharashtra. “Our aim is to provide school children the opportunity to play table tennis at a competitive level. We also want to spread awareness of the game among school children and provide a platform for young champions,” said the eight-time national mens singles champion. “11Even Sports and TTFI are working towards encouraging and supporting all state associations and to make table tennis the most played sport in schools,” the 56-year-old former national coach said. Events would be held for senior boys and girls and junior boys and girls but restricted to those students currently in the VIII, IX and X standards, according to Mehta. All the teams who qualify for the inter-state schools nationals would be provided with accommodation, food and local travel for the entire duration of stage 2 of the event.

Sharing a case study at Apollo, Vohra says, “Social mediaSharing a case study at Apollo, Vohra says, “Social media is also triggering relationship breakdown in many cases. A 17- year-old girl came to us after she was harassed by her ex- boyfriend over Facebook. So much so that the girls family had to file a police complaint against the boy, who has become obsessed with her.”He says besides triggering anxiety, depression and self- destructing tendencies, social media platforms have also led to people suffering from “body dysmorphic disorder”.”So we had a 21-year-old girl who was brought to us, who insisted that her nose was imperfect and tried rhinoplasty despite the fact it was alright. Constant bombardment of images on social media, peer pressure and selfie-culture has engendered this narcissistic behaviour that borders on psychological disorders,” Vohra says.Ganga Ram Hospitals Kumar says she gets “cases where young people especially adolescents come to me complaining they have suicidal tendencies and ask what they should do. After going through their history, one realises that many of them had some sort of harassment or bullying on social media.”A 24-year-old Delhi-based professional, who did not wish to be identified, says, “There is this culture of unwanted tagging with nasty posts on Facebook and trolling on Twitter that the social media culture has spawned. I myself have been its victim, so I know.”Though I think social media is a tool to network and be in touch with people who are far off, but excessive use of it is affecting people in a bad way.”advertisementVohra says “social media also has become a platform for catharsis for the youth.”It is an open and free forum, and many of them see this virtual place where they can let out their pent-up emotions or rent anger. Many also post suicide notes on Facebook before claiming their lives, so, it has both pros and cons. And one has to use it judiciously.”Sagar at AIIMS says, the only way forward is to educate the youth when they are in school. “Just like we do it for cigarettes and alcohol use, I think there should be an education and counselling programme in schools for social media too. Since, we are living in a digital era, we cannot say we should divorce ourselves from social media, but we can learn to adapt it the right way.”The World Mental Health Day theme by the UN this year is –Dignity in Mental Health — Psychological & Mental Health First Aid for All.”Social media has taken over real socialisation. Playgrounds are shrinking and children are more into internet gaming then outdoor sports which is a cause of concern… Majority of mental health patients dont seek treatment, just about 10-15 per cent do. That is mostly because of the stigma attached to it,” Sagar says. PTI KND ZMN RCJ

When we looked at the market we noted that although there are some out there in felt, for the most part they are in dark earth tones and consequently they have a kind heavy look. We decided that the novelty of our design should rest on the materials and in the colors so we kept the design and silhouette very basic and very familiar.
