After watching Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl played by Jahanvi Kapoor, my heart really asked me one question; What is actually ‘Desh ki beti?’This is the question I think every person should ask themselves and not just girls or women? How do we want to paint the image of India in the world? Because I know the condition of women actually tells you if your country is progressing as a whole.It is not true that women are not getting opportunities in our country. NO! but they are not getting equal opportunities. This is because there is no check after getting the job. Women do get jobs and opportunities but then why is there a decline in the workforce of women? Is it the safety issue? Family issue? NO! The issue is of thinking. After all the efforts girls put in they are never considered equal. My family never differentiated between a girl and a boy and always helped me to spread my wings and fly but eventually, they too get tensed by the fact that what will happen when I will go out alone. What will happen when I am living alone? How will society react to my choices? After watching the movie today I was moved by the bond between the Father and the daughter. Though her mother and brother never supported her choices; her father was always there to pick her up whenever she had a downfall. We all need someone to pick us up when we fall and to trust us when we want to spread our wings. Like Gunjan had her Dad; I have my family to support me, I would request each and everyone reading this article to support each other because some words of appreciation and trust enhance the confidence of the other person and you never know what the other person is capable of doing.Criticism has never done anybody good. Healthy criticism is good but laughing on choices and making the other person feel weak is never healthy. No one likes to feel less than the other person. it is our responsibility to create equal opportunities and make the workplace equal for anyone who is working there irrespective of the gender. Everyone qualifies the entrance criteria with the same amount of dedication hence everyone should be treated while keeping that in mind.No one is weak remember! We can be what we want to be!
Justin Sullivan/Getty ImagesBY: MORGAN WINSOR AND ELLA TORRES, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 679,000 people worldwide.Over 17.6 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 4.5 million diagnosed cases and at least 153,314 deaths.Here is how the news is developing today. All times Eastern.4:33 p.m.: South Africa surpasses 500,000 casesThere are now 503,290 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in South Africa, according to the country’s Department of Health.There were 10,107 new cases reported and more than 3 million tests have been conducted, the agency said.Deaths also increased, with 148 fatalities in the last 24 hours in the country of some 57 million. The total number of deaths is 8,153.4:19 p.m.: FDA authorizes 1st tests that estimate patient’s antibodiesThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized two new antibody tests capable of estimating the number of antibodies in a person’s blood.The tests, called “semi-quantitative” tests, “may be useful as we continue to learn more about the virus and what the existence of antibodies may mean,” Tim Stenzel, director of the Office of In Vitro Diagnostics and Radiological Health at the FDA, said in a statement.Scientists still do not know if, or to what extent, antibodies offer immunity to COVID-19.“Patients should not interpret results as telling them they are immune, or have any level of immunity, from the virus,” Stenzel said.3:54 p.m.: Phillies, Marlins to resume playing next weekThe Philadelphia Phillies are set to resume playing Monday, after several games had been canceled “out of an abundance of caution,” according to the Major Leagues Baseball.The games were canceled because the Phillies had played against the Miami Marlins, a team that experienced numerous COVID-19 positive tests among players and staff.The MLB said the last exposure of Phillies players and staff was on July 26, and no players have tested positive since.Three staff members did test positive, but MLB said it appeared two of those results were false positives.The Miami Marlins also are scheduled to resume playing, Tuesday against the Baltimore Orioles.The players and staff had been in quarantine in Philadelphia since July 26. The Marlins reported no new positive tests results in Friday’s collections, according to MLB.3:20 p.m.: California reports highest daily deathsThe California Department of Public Health reported that 219 people died of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, marking the state’s highest daily death toll.The total number of fatalities is now 9,224, according to the agency. There were also 6,542 new cases, with the 14-day average reaching 8,912.However, hospitalizations and ICU admittances are falling.This week’s positivity rate — 6.5% — was nearly a full point below that of the previous 14 days, 7.3%.Earlier in the day, a tally of total cases by Johns Hopkins showed that cases in the state surpassed 500,000. The California Department of Public Health confirmed that number.1:20 p.m.: House Democrat tests positive after contact with GohmertRep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, has tested positive for COVID-19.Grijalva’s diagnosis comes days after he had close contact with Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, at a committee hearing. Gohmert, who refused to wear a mask, tested positive earlier this week.Grijalva said he’s asymptomatic and will self-isolate.“While I cannot blame anyone directly for this, this week has shown that there are some Members of Congress who fail to take this crisis seriously,” he said in a statement. “Numerous Republican members routinely strut around the Capitol without a mask to selfishly make a political statement at the expense of their colleagues, staff, and their families.”In addition to Grijalva, three House Republicans and several GOP staffers also are self-quarantining after contact with Gohmert.1:06 p.m.: Milwaukee Brewers player opts out for rest of seasonLorenzo Cain, an outfielder for the Milwaukee Brewers, has chosen not to play for the remainder of the season.“We fully support Lorenzo’s decision, and we will miss his talents on the field and leadership in the clubhouse,” President and General Manager David Stearns said in a statement.The news comes a day after the Brewers’ game against the St. Louis Cardinals was postponed.Cain later issued a statement saying the decision was made after “careful consideration and discussion with my family.”“With all of the uncertainty and unknowns surrounding our game at this time, I feel that this is the best decision for me, my wife, and our three kids,” he said, adding that the team was “very understanding and supportive.”“I wish all of my great teammates the best of luck this season and look forward to getting back on the field in 2021. Please stay safe,” Cain said.11:25 a.m.: Mississippi school district announces positive COVID test in 1st week backA person in the Corinth School District in Mississippi has tested positive for coronavirus, the school district announced.It was the district’s first week back, and the first district in the state to reopen.The district said anyone who had close contact with the person, which was described as within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more, has been notified.Children who need to quarantine will not be allowed to attend school or school activities, but will be required to complete their work.10:57 a.m.: Florida deaths surpass 7,000Deaths in Florida have reached 7,145, after an increase of 179 in the last 24 hours, according to the state’s Department of Health.The number of confirmed cases totaled 480,028, an increase of 9,642.Hospitalizations also rose, by 439 in the last 24 hours.However, there were 7,968 active hospitalizations, which is down significantly from the last two weeks.8:54 a.m.: Ohio State releases pledge students must sign to return to campusThe Ohio State University has released a pledge that all students who want to return to campus must sign as part of their effort to minimize the spread.The pledge — called the Together as Buckeyes Pledge — mandates that students follow the university’s guidelines on social distancing, masks and hygiene tips.It also reads, “I understand that COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus and it is possible to develop and contract the COVID-19 disease even if I follow all of the safety recommendations of the university and comply with the Pledge.”Students cannot return to campus without having signed the pledge.For those who don’t sign, they “would be failing to comply with a legitimate university directive and pursuant to university policies, students, faculty, and staff will be subject to the appropriate accountability measures and disciplinary actions,” the pledge reads.Students will be contacted by the student conduct office and given five days to sign the pledge if they have not done so by the time school begins, according to The Columbus Dispatch. If a student still does not sign the pledge, he or she will only be permitted to take virtual courses, may not schedule a move-in time, may not physically enter any campus or university facility and may not physically participate in any university activity on or off campus, the Dispatch reported.8:30 a.m.: California becomes 1st state to tally over half a million casesCalifornia has become the first U.S. state to tally more than half a million diagnosed cases of COVID-19, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.As of Saturday morning, the Golden State had reported at least 500,556 confirmed cases.Just last month, California surpassed New York as the state with the nation’s highest case count.7:25 a.m.: CDC predicts 168,000 to 182,000 US deaths by Aug. 22The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its website overnight to include the prediction that 168,000 to 182,000 Americans likely would die from COVID-19-related deaths by Aug. 22.According to the CDC, based on data from 32 modeling groups, weekly reports of new COVID-19 deaths may increase over the next month, with 5,000 to 11,000 new deaths reported during the week ending Aug. 22.The CDC’s forecast also predicts that the number of reported new deaths per week may increase over the next four weeks in Alabama, Kentucky, New Jersey, Puerto Rico, Tennessee and Washington.6:25 a.m.: India records its highest daily increase in casesIndia reported more than 57,000 new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, its steepest spike to date, taking the nationwide count close to 1.7 million.The Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare also reported 764 additional coronavirus-related deaths, bringing the total to 36,511.The country of 1.3 billion people has the third-highest number of diagnosed COVID-19 cases in the world, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.

Those whose initial test comes back negative will be allowed to discontinue their quarantine. After the third test comes back negative, students will be allowed to fully participate in campus activities, such as going to classes, according to Northeastern University.The new measures will apply to every student arriving on campus from all states for the start of the fall semester, whether they live on or off campus.Students living on campus who test positive for the novel coronavirus will be isolated and moved into designated on-campus housing units with their own bathrooms. Food will be delivered to the students there, and case managers and clinical support will be made available on a daily basis, according to the university.4:07 a.m.: US reports over 67,000 new cases as total tops 4.5 millionJust over 67,000 new cases of COVID-19 were identified in the United States on Friday, bringing the nationwide count soaring past 4.5 million, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.The latest daily caseload is under the country’s record set on July 16, when more than 77,000 new cases were identified in a 24-hour reporting period.A total of 4,562,171 people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 153,314 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up and crossing 70,000 for the first time in mid-July.Many states have seen a rise in infections in recent weeks, with some — including Arizona, California and Florida — reporting daily records.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Approximately one-fifth (19%) of client assets are lost when advisers change firm affiliations, in addition to clients the advisers had planned on leaving behind, research by Cerulli Associates has found. Advisers identify the ability to build financial value (74%) and a desire for greater independence (67%) as the top reasons for changing firms, but they shouldn’t ignore the risks involved in such a move, Cerulli said in a release.“Unplanned client attrition is a significant concern among advisers, particularly those who consider breaking away to an independent channel,” according to Cerulli’s Michael Rose. “It is critical that advisers perform an honest self-assessment of the strength of their client relationships, and the share of their client base that could be at risk as a result of breaking away.”In addition to client attrition, advisers switching firms identify operational matters (77%), learning new technology systems (75%), and revenue lost during the transition period (71%) as the top challenges they experienced. The high ranking that advisers gave to operational challenges, such as opening new accounts and dealing with account transfers, means firms that investing in technology and operational personnel should have an advantage when it comes to recruiting and retaining advisers, Cerulli said.[More: Holding on to clients in any market]

Steve Bannon, the former Trump strategist and “alt-right” publisher, capped a European tour this week by urging a gathering of France’s struggling National Front party to stand by their populist guns.“Let them call you racists,” Bannon told a party congress in Lille on Saturday, according to a video of the speech. “Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor.”Bannon was a notable draw at the meeting, which FN leader Marine Le Pen called to push through a rebranding of her party. Some 52 percent of party members voted to change the name of the far-right party, which has yet to be announced. “History is on our side,” said Bannon. “You’re part of a worldwide movement bigger than France, bigger than Italy.”Le Pen lost last year’s presidential election to Emmanuel Macron, and Bannon himself has also been down on his political luck in recent months. He was pushed out of his senior role at the White House and then earlier this year, following a public spat with Trump, fired by the alt-right media company Breitbart News.

Immediately recognizable by her unique style and long jet black hair, Live for Live Music spoke with Audrey Napoleon in the midst of Camp Bisco craziness this past Saturday. Touching on her new single “Dope a La Mode,” her many other artistic side projects, her thoughts on genres and new music to come.You’re currently promoting your new single, Dope a La Mode, how are things going with this is it being received the way you’d hoped?Yeah it is, it’s being received as a piece of art, which is perfect for me because that’s the only way it should be received. It was a film that I really wanted to do to express my version of a love story really and I wrote the whole treatment for it so yeah, it’s being received really well.The music video for it is awesome, it kind of makes me think of a wild twist on Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” music video. Was there a specific inspiration behind it or a message you were trying to convey?Aw thank you. The inspiration behind it came from where a lot of my ideas come from, which are my nightmares. My nightmares and my dreams. I don’t know if I’m to convey a message, so much as a beautiful piece of art as a whole song with the film.You describe your sound as underground pop. Can you explain this classification?Underground pop is a name that I created for what I’m doing. Mainly because I feel like to put something into a genre is a bit ridiculous because genres are always in flux. One day it can be trance and the next day called progressive. I just decided to wrap one big word around it and call it underground pop because it’s kind of the in-between of the entire spectrum.The release of your last EP Ornamental Ego’s was around this time last July. Although you’ve released some banging singles since then can we look forward to a new album soon?Oh it was! July 24th. And yeah, I’ve actually written four other songs that I’m singing on as well, I play two of them for you guys today, their in the middle of my show. It’s always very scary playing something I haven’t done before. To hear my voice that loud, it’s a bit nerve-wracking, but I’m not sure if I’m going to do it as singles yet or if I want to do it as an EP. However, I’m always open to it if art leads me there. It’s all what the art tells me to do.Do you have a favorite song to play to right now to really get the crowd on its feet?I reckon my favorite song to play would be “Poison” the Jupiter Ace remix. I love it, it’s really perfect and I always play that or Banana Soda es Muy Loco, that one always gets them going.What song of yours have you been most excited to hear played by another artist?Banana Soda has been getting a lot of love lately, Tiesto has been playing it, Dada Life, and then Eric Prydz did his own mashup of it last year so that’s always fun to hear. I didn’t even realize that, it’s just such a ridiculous song to me but it seems to latch on. Are you in the habit on working on new productions while touring or is it something you focus more on while at home?Oh no, it goes hand in hand.How do you manage that?Well, I’m performing I get so much inspiration off the fans that sometimes I just go back to the hotel and write a little bit. There’s actually a lot of down time, a lot of time to sit and write.Aside from producing music you’ve also created your own clothing line, how do you balance so many different forms of art at once?I have no fucking idea. I guess it just goes day by day some days the music takes over and other days the fashion takes over. I have my duties for Heineken as their ambassador, we’ve actually re-launching the campaign in 2014 and it’ll be launched in 28 countries. So I guess it really just depends on the day.Does music always come first?Art comes first. So whichever I wake up and happens to be at the front of my head, that’s the one I’m going with.In an industry that’s predominately male, do you find yourself facing different challenges because you’re a woman?Oh no, what is a male and a female? Who cares?Can you share with us an experience with a fan that has really stuck with you?I have a fan that tattooed my face on their arm. I’m going to have to make sure he’s a fan for life, I don’t want to upset him ever.You’ve also produced your own short film series. Can you tell us a little bit about this and how it’s connected to your music?I believe that visual is very important in telling a story. I didn’t want to do it in typical music video fashion I wanted to do it in short films. I have a very vivid imagination and I needed another way to express it.If you could collaborate with any artist who would it be?David Bowie, Marilyn Manson.Any advice for up and coming artists?I always give this advice, and that is to stay to stay true to your art. Because if you are true to your art and to yourself, no one can ever give you shit about what you’re doing, about what you’ve done, about what you’re going to do because its your art. The only other thing I’d like to say is that I love my fans very much.
