U.S. and Canadian fighter aircraft intercepted two Russian Tu-95 Bear H bombers over the Beaufort Sea north of the Alaskan and Canadian coast on Thursday, according to North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). 

he bombers had entered the Alaskan and Canadian Air Defense Identification Zones (ADIZ), which extends 200 miles off the coast, but they did not cross into U.S. or Canadian sovereign airspace. It's believed to be the fifth Russian intercept by the U.S. this year.
The two U.S. F-22 fighters and two Canadian CF-18 fighters were supported by an American E-3 Sentry, KC-135 refueling aircraft and C-130 tanker.

Warren Buffett sends a silent warning to investors

Warren Buffett is arguably the greatest investor of our time. With around $10,000 to his name in the mid-1950s, the Oracle of Omaha, as he's now known, has grown his net worth to more than $84 billion. And, mind you, this is a modest figure, given the tens of billions of dollars Buffett has generously given to charity over the years. If not for his ongoing philanthropic contributions, he might very well dethrone Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as the richest man on Earth.
Buffett, who has helmed conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway as its CEO for almost 50 years, is an interesting case. Whereas every method under the sun has been seemingly tested to beat the stock market and get rich, Buffett has done so by simply focusing on value, buying solid companies, and hanging onto them for very long periods. Coca-Cola and Wells Fargo, for example, have been staples of the Berkshire Hathaway investment portfolio for more than 30 years. And with the book value of Berkshire Hathaway gaining 1,091,899% since 1965 (through Dec. 31, 2018), who's to argue with his performance? 

When Buffett speaks, Wall Street listens

Nayakgiri:Tribute to a Stalwart A Leader and Great Minister: Sushma Swarajji

A great loss to Indian Politics. An Iron Lady who exemplified a minister's performance and how its impact reaches the people and Indian all over the world be it a techie in Visa conundrum in US, or a victim of road accident anywhere in the world, or a laborer exploited in Gulf or abused NRI wives all over the world, or those lying low in Pakistan prisons. Be it diplomacy in SAARC region, APAC, EU, US, Russia, China, Middle East, Africa, UN, she was the best. A great orator, parliamentarian, leader,  leader of opposition, minster of parliamentary affairs, women cause champion. A short tenured Chief minister in troubled times and dislodged by a strange reason: Onion Prices. A youth leader and state level politician par excellence. A very effective information and broadcasting minister as well as health minister A graceful exit from active politics due to unfortunate health  reasons which she finally succumbed to.  A tremendous loss to Nation....

Back-to-Back Bursts of Gun Violence in El Paso and Dayton Stun Country

On Sunday, Americans woke up to news of a shooting rampage in an entertainment district in Dayton, Ohio, where a man wearing body armor shot and killed nine people, including his own sister. Hours earlier, a 21-year-old with a rifle entered a Walmart in El Paso and killed 20 people. 
In a country that has become nearly numb to men with guns opening fire in schools, at concerts and in churches, the back-to-back bursts of gun violence in less than 24 hours were enough to leave the public stunned and shaken. The shootings ground the 2020 presidential campaign to a halt, reignited a debate on gun control and called into question the increasingly angry words directed at immigrants on the southern border in recent weeks by right-wing pundits and President Trump.

Bridge Built in Shivaji Maharaj Era

प्रतापगडाच्या पायथ्याशी "पार्वतीपुरनावाचे एक गाव आहे. नंतर त्यांचे "पार"असे नाव पडले

या पार गावाजवळ शिवरायांनी एक पुल बांधून घेतला होता

मीटर रुंदीचा हा पुल बहुधा प्रतापगडाच्या उभारणीच्या काळात म्हणजे १६५६-१६५८ या दरम्यान बांधला गेला असावा.

  कोयना नदी ओलांडण्या साठी ५२ मीटर लांब आणिमीटर रुंद असा हा भक्कम दगडी पुल आहे. पुलाला असणाऱ्या पाच अधारांवर पुलाच्या चार कमानी तयार झाल्या आहेत. त्याची उंची जास्तीत जास्त पंधरा मीटर भरते. पाण्याच्या उगमाकडून येणाऱ्या जोरदार प्रवाहाने  पुलाच्या कमानींना धोका पोहचु नये म्हणून कमानी मधील खांबांना काटकोन तिरका आकार दुभागतो. हे सारेच बांधकाम फक्त चुन्यात केलेले आहे

     सुमारे साडेतीनशे वर्षां नंतरही हा पुल अद्यापही एकही चिरा ढासळता शाबूत आहे. दगडांच्या फटीमध्ये साधे झाडही उगवलेले नाही.

पुलाच्या दोन्ही बाजूंना हातभार उंचीचाफूटी दगडी कठडा आहे

   आपण ब्रिटिशांनी बांधलेल्या पुलांचे १०० वर्षे झाली म्हणुन कौतुक करतो. या पुलाला ३५० बर्षे होऊनही अद्याप एकही तडा गेला नाही अथवा दगडही निसटला नाही.

Good Morning from Australia

Happy Friendship Day

Mathematician Ramanujam didn’t have any close friends and someone asked him the reason. He replied that although he wanted to have close friends but nobody was up to his expectations.

When pressed how he expected his friend to be,  he replied,  "like numbers 220 and 284!"

The person got confused and asked what is the connection between friendship and these numbers!

Ramanujam asked him to find the divisors of each number! 

With much difficulty, the person derived and listed them as, 

220 → 1,2,4,5,10,11,20,22,44,55,110,220

284 →1,2,4,71,142,284

Ramanujam then asked the person to exclude the numbers 220 and 284 and asked the sum of the remaining divisors.

The person was astonished to find,

220 → 1+2+4+5+10+11+20+22+44+55+110=284

284 →1+2+4+71+142=220

Ramanujam explained that an ideal friendship should be like these numbers, to complement each other. Even when one is absent, the other should represent the friend!

Hats off to this great mind🙏🏻and genius🙏🏻who is on the world’s top list of mathematicians! 👌🏻👌

*Happy Friendship day to all*💐🙂
