Indian brides go light, turn away from heavy outfits

Pilotless Planes
THIS week the Navy will launch an entirely autonomous combat drone - without a pilot on a joystick anywhere - off the deck of an aircraft carrier, the George HW Bush. The drone will then try to land aboard the same ship, a feat only a relatively few human pilots in the world can accomplish. This exercise is the beginning of a new chapter in military history: autonomous drone warfare. But it is also an ominous turn in a potentially dangerous military rivalry now building between the United States and China. The X-47B, a stealth plane nicknamed 'the Robot' by Navy crews, is a big bird - 38 feet long, with a 62-foot wingspan - that flies at high subsonic speeds with a range of over 2,000 miles ...
Corrupt Legislature
LET'S talk about what makes a delinquent state legislature. I know it's been on your mind. The newest political trend in New York involves corrupt state legislators attempting to curry favour with federal prosecutors by wearing wires to work. Perhaps there have been worse fads. There was a time, not long ago, when Assembly members could punch in early in the day, leave to play golf and still be recorded as voting "yes" on every single bill that hit the floor. Officials recently revealed that a 74- year-old senator named Shirley Huntley secretly recorded assorted pols whom she invited over for a chat while claiming to be laid up with a broken ankle. She was sentenced to prison for embezzlement anyway ...

Gharafa, El Jaish target good results in AFC CL

IKOLI VICTOR

DOHA AFC Champions League debutants El Jaish and Al Gharafa of Qatar will square up against Al Ahli and Al Shabab, respectively, in the knockout stage of the AFC Champions League in Doha on Tuesday.

El Jaish, eliminated in the semi-final stage of the Emir Cup by Al Rayyan on Saturday, are boosted by the return of star striker Adriano Martins in the team The Brazilian ace missed the last few games due to injury but will return fit and ready in an attempt to help Jaish put one foot in the quarter- finals first leg.

El Jaish claimed an impressive runners-up finish in Group A behind Saudi champions Al Shabab and ahead of Al Jazira and Tractorsazi Tabriz.

Speaking at pre-match press conference on Monday, El Jaish coach Razvan Lucescu said, “We want to have a positive result in the first leg of the match as we want to continue our successful campaign in the competition and get as far as we can.

“We will be playing against one of the top teams in the continent who reached the final of the competition last year.” Meanwhile, former finalists Al Ahli are boosted by the return of midfield duo Jairo Palomino and Bruno Cesar for the clash.

Group C winners Al Ahli, who lost last year’s final to Ulsan Hyundai, arrived in Doha on Sunday after sealing a place in the semi-finals of the King’s Cup with a 3-1 win over Al Nassr on Wednesday.

In addition, both Colombian Palomino and Brazilian Bruno Cesar are available to coach Aleksander Ilic after the pair missed the 2-2 draw with UAE Pro League side Al Nasr two weeks ago, although midfielder Abdulrahim Jezawi is doubtful after missing the win over Al Nassr due to a stomach injury.

“We will be playing against a tough team who have achieved good results in the competition despite the fact that they are playing in the AFC Champions League for the first time,” said Al Ahli coach Ilic.

“We hope that we can get a good result before hosting the second leg which will be decisive.

In Tuesday’s other match, Al Gharafa are hosting Al Shabab. The club from Riyadh was Group A winners while Gharafa finished second in Group C. Al Gharafa can take some tips from El Jaish who trounced the Saudi club 3-0 in a Group match recently.

Having overcome Iranian side Sepahan and Al Nasr of the United Arab Emirates to reach the knockout stage, Al Gharafa coach Habib Tounsi is hopeful that his side can now progress to the last eight of the competition.
