the minimum wage and gun control just days before the critical New York primary The showdown Thursday night in Brooklyn came at a pivotal moment in the party’s primary campaign with Clinton leading in the delegate count but Sanders generating huge enthusiasm for his surprising candidacy Clinton has accumulated 1289 pledged delegates from primaries and caucuses while Sanders has 1038 Her lead grows significantly when the superdelegates are added in: 1758 for Clinton and 1069 for Sanders It takes 2383 to clinch the Democratic nomination Sanders would need to win 68 percent of the remaining delegates and uncommitted superdelegates to reach that figure The Vermont senator took a biting and often sarcastic tone as he sought to chip away at Clinton’s credibility He cited her support for the unpopular Iraq war and for free trade agreements as well as her willingness to accept money through a super political action committee as evidence that she lacks the needed judgment to lead the nation Still Sanders backed away from previous statements questioning Clinton’s qualifications saying the former secretary of state does have the "experience and intelligence" to be president Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders AP Clinton made little effort to hide her irritation with Sanders’ challenging of her qualifications saying that while she has been "called a lot of things in my life that was a first" She also cast Sanders as unprepared to implement even his signature policy proposals including breaking up big banks "I think you need to have the judgment on day one to be commander in chief" she said The debate was the first for the Democratic candidates in five weeks It came ahead of Tuesday’s primary in New York a high-stakes contest with a huge cache of delegates at stake For Clinton a win in her adopted home state would blunt Sanders’ recent momentum and put his pursuit of the nomination further out of reach A Sanders upset over Clinton would shake up the race raising fresh concerns about her candidacy and breathing new life into the Vermont senator’s campaign On the Republican side protests raged outside a state party gala as Republican front-runner Donald Trump delivered an impassioned defense of the city he calls home The billionaire businessman praised the city’s response to the nation’s deadliest terrorist attacks in remarks designed to jab leading rival Ted Cruz a Texas senator who has repeatedly condemned "New York values" in his push to defeat the New York real estate mogul Trump was the target of rowdy protesters who hung an effigy of the billionaire businessman and chanted "How do you spell racist T-R-U-M-P" The raucous scene came shortly after Florida prosecutors dismissed a criminal complaint against Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski two weeks after local police charged him with grabbing a reporter The Democratic primary has been fought for months on familiar terrain Clinton has cast Sanders’ proposals for breaking up banks and offering free tuition at public colleges and universities as unrealistic Sanders has accused Clinton of being part of a rigged economic and political system hammering her repeatedly for giving paid speeches to Wall Street banks and refusing to release the transcripts Clinton continued to struggle to explain why she has not released the transcripts saying only that she’ll do so when other candidates are required to do the same thing She tried to raise questions about Sanders’ own openness for not releasing his income taxes The senator pledged to release his most recent tax returns on Friday and said there would be "no big money from speeches no major investments" in the disclosures Sanders whose campaign has focused squarely on economic issues showed more fluency on foreign policy than in previous debates particularly during an extended exchange on the intractable conflict between Israel and the Palestinians He urged the US to be "even-handed" in dealing with both sides and said Washington must acknowledge that Israel isn’t right all of the time Clinton highlighted her involvement with Mideast peace efforts as Obama’s secretary of state saying pointedly "Describing the problem is a lot easier than trying to solve it" Sanders has won a string of recent primary contests including a big victory earlier this month in Wisconsin But because Democrats award their delegates proportionally he’s struggled to cut into the lead Clinton took earlier in the voting He’s also failed to persuade superdelegates — the party insiders who can back the candidate of their choice regardless of how their states vote — to switch their loyalties from Clinton Despite his long mathematical odds Sanders has vowed to stay in the race through the party’s convention in

deal with France for 36 Rafale fighter jets which will cost 7878 billion Euros and will be signed on Friday in the presence of French Defence Minister Jean Yves Le Drian Defence sources said that deal for the aircraft the first fighter jet deal in 20 years comes with a saving of nearly 750 million Euros than the UPA era one which was scrapped by the Narendra Modi government besides a 50 percent offset clause File image of a Rafale aircraft Reuters This means business worth at least three billion Euros for Indian companies both big and small and generating hundreds of jobs in India through offsets The Rafale fighter jets deliveries of which will start in 36 months and finished in 66 months from the date contract is inked comes equipped with state-of-the-art missiles like Meteor and Scalp that will give the IAF a capability that had been sorely missing in its arsenal Sources said the government on Wednesday formally cleared the Inter Governmental Agreement to be signed on Friday in the presence of Drian who arrives on Thursday evening along with CEOs of Dassault Aviation Thales and MBDA and top government officials The contract for the deal was already cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Security earlier The price of the contract was fixed in May sources said Sources said the "vanila price" (just the 36 aircraft) is about 342 billion Euros The armaments cost about 710 million Euros while Indian specific changes including integration of Israeli helmet mounted displays will cost 1700 million Euros Rest of the cost include spare parts maintenance among others Besides other features that make the Rafale a strategic weapon in the hands of the IAF is the Beyond Visual Range Meteor air-to-air missile with a range in excess of 150 km Its integration on the Rafale jets will mean the IAF can hit targets inside both Pakistan and across the northern and eastern borders while still staying within India’s own territorial boundary Pakistan currently has only a BVR with 80 km range During the Kargil war India used a BVR of 50 km while Pakistan had none With Meteor the balance of power in the air space has again tilted in India’s favour Scalp a long-range air-to-ground cruise missile with a range in excess of 300 km also gives the IAF an edge over its adversaries The tough negotiations by the MoD-IAF team extracted many concessions and discounts from the French before arriving at a price that is almost 750 million Euros less than what was being quoted by the French side in January 2016 This was when the commercial negotiations gathered pace almost seven

a world number one as she fought off a match point to claim a riveting 3-6 7-5 6-4 comeback win over Zhang Shuai in the US Open third round on Saturday Pliskova runner-up at Flushing Meadows last year would have lost her world number one ranking had she been beaten on Arthur Ashe Stadium but instead moved another step closer to a first career grand slam title Chinese Zhang was the more aggressive player from the start frequently rushing to net and stepping into the court to attack Pliskova’s second serve on an unseasonably cool day in New York The strategy paid off as she broke Pliskova in her first two service games to take a 3-1 lead and captured the first set with an emphatic overhead smash She continued her fiery play into the second set but on match point tightened up and hit an errant backhand disappointing a New York crowd that had been rooting for the underdog Pliskova won the next three games to close out the set Zhang did not roll over however and broke Pliskova to take an early 2-0 lead in the third but Zhang’s mistakes soon started piling up Zhang ended the contest with 46 unforced errors to Pliskova’s 38 She was also undone by the tall Czech’s biggest weapon – her powerful serve Pliskova finished with nine aces and just one double fault while Zhang hit two aces while committing five doubles Pliskova needed an injury time out to attend to a sore arm between the

forgetting his pants when he gets a call from ‘Silencer’ (Omi Vaidya) The principal is very similar to Dr Viru Sahastrabuddhe (Boman Irani) and talks about the importance of perfection From the trailer it looks like the film is more an adaptation of the original movie made to suit the Mexican audience What is common between the two movies is the portrayal of pressure faced by students the strict principal and the three idiots’ financial background However it looks like Martha Higareda plays the role of a student from their class instead of a doctor but the iconic scene of the three
