Khan added that he wanted to cooperate in investigating the suicide bombing on Thursday, in which 40 Indian paramilitary police were killed in an attack claimed by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militant group. Tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbors has risen sharply over the killing in the Indian-controlled part of the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir. Khan, in a televised address to the nation, noted the calls in India for revenge and said he hoped "better sense will prevail ... "If you think that you will launch any kind of attack on Pakistan, Pakistan will not just think about retaliation, Pakistan will retaliate.

How to see tonight's super Snow moon in the UK
Dust off those binoculars because space fans are in for a celestial treat tonight. February's Snow Moon will be the second super moon of 2019 to grace our skies, appearing bigger and brighter to the human eye than usual as it makes its closest approach to Earth in the lunar cycle.  As one of 12 full moons to admire every year, February's moon was nicknamed the Snow Moon by early Native Americans to symbolise the country's heavy snowfall and challenging hunting conditions. But when and how can you see it? Here we've compiled a complete guide to our moon, Earth's only natural satellite and the largest and brightest object in our night sky which has enchanted and inspired mankind for centuries. From super moon to blue moon, here's everything explained in one place. How often does a full moon occur? A full moon occurs every 29.5 days and is when the Moon is completely illuminated by the Sun's rays. It occurs when Earth is directly aligned between the Sun and the Moon.  Why do full moons have names? The early Native Americans didn't record time using months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. Instead tribes gave each full moon a nickname to keep track of the seasons and lunar months. Most of the names relate to an activity or an event that took place at the time in each location. However, it wasn't a uniform system and tribes tended to name and count moons differently. Some, for example, counted four seasons a year while others counted five. Others defined a year as 12 moons, while others said there were 13. Colonial Americans adopted some of the m

Dick Cavett Show: Inside The Mind Of....
Talk show host Dick Cavett (b. 1936) is rightly remembered as having one of the very best talk shows on television. His unusual combination of Yale-educated intellectualism and Nebraska-bred midwestern ordinariness, a kind of perpetual state of halting slight embarrassment, charmed audiences. They appreciated his self-deprecating humor and, most significantly, his eclectic guests. His smart conversations spurred many guests who'd rarely (or never) turn up on The Tonight Show, "Joey Bishop" or "Mike Douglas": esteemed writers, firebrand political activists, out-of-the-mainstream rock stars, and reclusive actors like Brando and Katharine Hepburn. More than a decade ago, Shout! Factory released a superb series of boxed sets to DVD, one devoted to "Hollywood Greats" like Fred Astaire, Robert Mitchum, Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, Kirk Douglas and others. "Comic Legends" featured the likes of Wo...Read the entire review

Kamala Harris faces scrutiny over Jussie Smollett ‘modern day lynching' comment at 2020 campaign event
Senator Kamala Harris visited New Hampshire on Monday for the first time in her life, and quickly experienced the realities of being a presidential candidate: She faced questions from national reporters about her political ideology and her description of the alleged assault on actor Jussie Smollett as "an attempted modern day lynching," followed by a town hall-style forum with a big crowd of more than 1,000 voters. Unlike most presidential hopefuls, who come to New Hampshire years before the primary, Ms Harris — who is from California and relatively new to the national political stage — waited until roughly a year before the primary to show up. Barack Obama, who had never been to New Hampshire before running for president, visited the state in December 2006, about 13 months before its 2008 primary.

Suicide bomber who killed 27 members of Iran's Guards was Pakistani: Guards commander
The man who carried out a suicide bombing which killed 27 members of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards near the border with Pakistan last week was Pakistani, a senior Revolutionary Guards commander said on Tuesday, according to the Tasnim news agency. One other member of the militant cell that planned the attack was also a Pakistani citizen, the head of the Guards' ground forces, Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said. Iran has repeatedly blamed Pakistan for sheltering militants connected with attacks in the border area, although Tuesday's remarks appear to be the first time Tehran has said Pakistani citizens were directly involved in the attack.

Why the Marvel-Netflix TV Partnership Disintegrated
In 2015, the Netflix/Marvel Television partnership appeared to have a long future ahead. The shared setting that kicked off with "Daredevil" was supposed to be the television equivalent of the hugely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has produced some of the highest-grossing films of all time.But four years later, it's over. On Monday Netflix canceled both "The Punisher," whose second season premiered last month, and "Jessica Jones," whose third season will stream later this year. They were Marvel's last remaining live-action Netflix shows — "Daredevil" was cancelled in November, and "Luke Cage" and "Iron Fist" both got the ax in October.So, what happened? Put simply, Disney and Netflix have turned from partners into rivals.Also Read: Hulu Is Open to 'Daredevil' or 'Luke Cage': Originals Boss Cites 'Good Creative Relationship' With MarvelIn 2017, Disney announced that its exclusive licensing agreement with Netflix would expire at the end of 2018, and that it was building its own Disney-branded streaming service, now known as Disney and set to launch later this year. Disney said at the time that the Marvel Netflix shows wouldn't be affected by the change, but in 2018 it announced that Disney will be home to at least one new Marvel TV show — and people with knowledge of the matter told TheWrap that two other shows are being developed.These new shows will hail from Marvel Studios instead of Marvel Television, and unlike the Netflix shows, they'll be explicitly connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and will fe
