Parisians to vote on electric rental scooters ban in France

The wheels may be about to come off the French capital's experiment with for-hire electric scooters, the so-called free floating flotilla of vehicles that can be picked up and dropped off at the whim of those who rent them. Zipping around the City of Light on one of them could soon be over if Parisians vote to do away with the 15,000 opinion-dividing micro-vehicles. The question City Hall will be asking on Sunday in a city-wide mini-referendum is: For or against self-service scooters in Paris?. The answer could doom a leading market for the two-wheeled vehicles that have added to the locomotion options in the French capital and other urban centers and towns around the world. Scattered around Paris, easy to locate and hire with a downloadable app and relatively cheap, the scooters are a hit with tourists who love their speed and the help-yourself freedom they offer to explore. In the five years since their introduction, following in the wake of shared cars and shared bicycles, for-hire scooters have also built a following among Parisians who don't want or can't afford their own but like the option to escape the Metro and other public transport. But amid complaints that e-scooters are an eyesore and a traffic menace, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and some of her deputies want to banish on safety, public nuisance and cost-benefit grounds before the capital hosts the Olympic Games next year. Paris' deputy mayor for transport, David Belliard, suggests that the scooters have been involved in hundreds of accidents, and affect other road-users in the crowded, compact and historic city where space is at a premium. Paris' contracts with the three rental companies - Dott, Lime and TIER - expire at the end of August. Whether for-hire scooters survive in Paris after that will depend on Sunday's poll that is open to all voters registered in Paris, including those from other European Union countries. Scooter-critics say the machines are particularly dangerous in the hands of tourists who don't know how to navigate Paris' frenetic, honk-honk, get-out-of-my-way traffic and the many users who flaunt the rules and risk fines by riding two to a scooter and by mounting the sidewalks. The three scooter operators say they transported nearly two million people in the city last year. With 71% of Parisian users under 35, they've used social media influencers, some of them paid, and messages on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok in a get-out-the-vote drive targeting that age group. They are also offering a free round-trip ride on their scooters or electric bikes on Sunday to users who enter the words Je vote - I vote in French - into their apps.

Congress leader not allowed to speak in Satyagraha, Shashi Tharoor says it is insulting

Kochi: The uproar over the Vaikom Satyagraha of Congress in Kerala is not taking the name of stopping. During the Vaikom Satyagraha, veteran Congress leader K Muraleedharan was not even given a chance to speak, due to which the Congress has been cornered. On Saturday, April 1, Congressman Shashi Tharoor also termed the incident humiliating. Tharoor said that senior leaders should not be treated like this if the party has to move forward properly. Tharoor said that Muraleedharan is a senior leader. He has also been the President of the Kerala Congress. He has played an important role in the party. It is not proper to insult a senior person in this way. Let me tell you, Muraleedharan's late father, K Karunakaran, was also a veteran Congress leader. Along with this, he has also been the CM of Kerala. Let us inform you that earlier, Muralitharan had said on Friday, March 31, that he had been deliberately sidelined. Two other former Kerala Congress chiefs, Ramesh Chennithala and MM Hassan, were given an opportunity to speak, but Muralidharan was not. He said three former KPCC presidents were present on the dais. Of these, Hassan and Chennithala were given a chance to speak. But I was not given the opportunity, which shows that they ignored me. Deliberately sidelined me. Muraleedharan said that I have informed Congress General Secretary KC Venugopal and KPCC Chief K Sudhakaran to let me know if my services are no longer required by the party. At the same time, Chennithala said that there was no need to make an issue out of it. Since Congress National President Mallikarjuna had to leave early, he might not have been given a chance to speak. On this, Congressman Shashi Tharoor said that if there was a paucity of time, the programme should have started a little earlier.

Hailey further said, 'If you want to turn off the TV once or fast your phone, then I still think it is okay and it is understandable, but leaving everything and fasting is my understanding. Our body needs nutrients, and how can it obtain them without eating food? It never mattered to me'.

Keep these 5 things in mind before waxing Get wax done 1-2 weeks before periods During periods our body becomes more sensitive. That's why experts recommend that waxing should be done a week or two before the start of periods so that the experience of pain is reduced. Stop using retinol 4-5 days in advance Retinol makes our skin delicate. Because the job of the vaccine is to remove the hair, delicate skin can be injured by it. Therefore, the use of retinol should be stopped a few days in advance. Exfoliate the night before If exfoliation is done properly, it removes dead skin cells. Dead skin cells clog the pores of the skin and new cells come up with exfoliation. With this waxing, the hair will easily come out along with the root. Make sure your skin is dry and clean Always clean the skin before waxing. With this, the wax will be able to apply well on your skin and will also be able to remove the hair properly.

Iftar delicacies: From meaty porridgeto sweet baklava

Not just Muslims, but people of all religions are seen heading to stalls near mosques to indulge in Iftar snacks. KOCHI: At her ancestral home in Kasaragod, Munseena Mohammed gets ready for the Maghrib (evening prayer), to break the Ramzan abstinence as the azan echoes from the mosque near her house. While arranging the quintessential Iftar table for her family, the mother of two still remembers her warm childhood. Her mothers sweet and savoury Cherupayar Phirni lingers in her mouth even now. The green gram soaked and cooked in coconut milk sprinkled with jaggery syrup was a signature Iftar snack of Umma. The aroma fills the house and I, along with my five siblings, would wait impatiently for her to serve the phirni. She left this world six years ago, but still that is what I remember during every Iftar, she says. Like Munseena, devotees across the state and beyond are observing Ramzan this month. With daytime spent in scorching heat, the evenings are filled with fun and people unite over food.From lip-smacking kaipola, unnakaya, muttapetti to Arabic varieties like haleem, umm Ali, baklawa, etc, an Iftar table is rich with snacks. Not just Muslims, people of all religions are seen heading to stalls near mosques to indulge in the tasty affairs. TNIE takes a look at the Iftar scene across the state and shares some special recipes by experts. Following the tradition, Munzeen spreads the traditional delicacies and displays her unique table on her Instagram account, moms_gift. Since the past two years, the Arabic influence is more visible during Iftar. Haleem, a savoury, meaty porridge that originated in Iran, which is part of the food habits of many in Asia in many varieties (Hyderabadi Haleem in India), has more takers now. However, to break the fast, its safer to consume juice, fruits or something non-oily. That said, the hot kozhi kanji aka nomb kanji in Kasaragod is more like a soup and a perfect option for breaking the fast, she adds. Not just Muslims, but people of all religions are seen heading to stalls near mosques to indulge in Iftar snacks. A scene from Thiruvananthapuram | B P Deepu Kochi-based home baker, Sunayna Abid confirms that the latest Iftar trend in Kochi is more of Indo-Arabic cuisines.From crispy samosas, and semiya payasam to the sweet delights like Umm Ali are making waves. I get orders from non-Muslims, too, who love to explore festive delicacies. Turkish Baklava, Egyptian Basbousa, and Hyderabadi Lukhmi are among the popular sweet delicacies in demand, she says. When it comes to Thiruvananthapuram, food vlogger Al Niyadh says the city is still bewitched by the taste of Malabar snacks. Samosa, kinnathappam, chatti pathiri, beef to mutta petti, unnakkaya, and egg baji are some of his favourite, affordable Iftar snacks.Kinnathappam is always in high demand in the capital. In the past, our Ifthar only had onion vada, uzhunnu vada and dates, apart from fruits. But even when the costly Arabian snacks are making rounds, most people prefer to savour the Malabar ones over a cup of juice or black tea, he says. Thiruvananthapuram-based home chef, Sheeba La Fleur, is known for her iftar kit filled with cheesy samosa, chicken momos, puddings, kanji and several main dishes. Now Iftar snacks are savoured by people of all religions. I started preparing Iftar kits when my healthy snacks became a hit within the family, especially smashed grilled bananas with scrambled egg and sugar in ghee. When breaking the fast, it is good to consume something that can help you regain body energy. So I started preparing cheesy sandwiches and chicken momos they are mildly spicy and good for all age groups. The ritual Sheeba La Fleur explains the ritual of fasting. According to the Quran, the Ramzan fasting is observed to understand the meaning of poverty and the plight of the poor. The idea is to help and share food with the poor. By taking a whole day of fasting, everyone will understand the feeling of hunger and they will respect food. Ramzan is a time to share and care and of self-realisation.

News Marking the 100th anniversary of the 1924 Vaikom Satyagraha that was the beginning of similar temple entry movements throughout the country, a celebration for 603 days is to be held in Kerala. File Photo Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and his Tamil Nadu counterpart MK Stalin will be inaugurating the centenary celebrations of Vaikom Satyagraha, on Saturday, April 1 in Keralas Kottayam. CM Pinarayi said that the celebrations will be held for around 603 days. The centenary celebrations of #VaikomSatyagraha will be kicked off tomorrow jointly with Comrade @mkstalin. The festivities will last 603 days, marked by programmes reminiscent of the historic struggle, a landmark in Kerala's renaissance movement. #Vaikom100, he said in a tweet. The centenary celebrations of #VaikomSatyagraha will be kicked off tomorrow jointly with Comrade @mkstalin. The festivities will last 603 days, marked by programmes reminiscent of the historic struggle, a landmark in Kerala's renaissance movement.#Vaikom100 Pinarayi Vijayan (@pinarayivijayan) March 31, 2023 In 1924, a non-violent protest commenced in Vaikom seeking temple entry for the Dalits and other so-called lower castes at the Vaikom Mahadeva temple in Kerala's Kottayam. The Vaikom protest was the beginning of similar temple entry movements throughout the country. This protest was spearheaded by Periyar, and the protest lasted for 603 days. It also earned him the moniker Vaikom Veerar. CM Stalin, on Thursday, announced that year-long celebrations will be organised to commemorate the centenary of the Vaikom satyagraha. Making the announcement in the Assembly, he also said that a 'Vaikom Award' would be presented to eminent personalities or organisations who work for the betterment of downtrodden people beyond the borders of the state. The Chief Minister also said that the awards would be given away on September 17, which is the birth anniversary of the Dravidian ideologue EV Ramaswamy Periyar, commonly known as 'Thanthai Periyar', and is marked as Social Justice Day in Tamil Nadu. Underlining the significance of Vaikom satyagraha that took place in 1924-25 in India's history of reforms, he cited the impact of Periyar's participation in the movement as a then leader of the Congress. Periyar is a leader not only for Tamils and Tamil Nadu. His thoughts and actions proved that he was a leader beyond languages and international boundaries. Self-respect, rationalism, equity, and social justice are universal philosophies. His thoughts form the base for yesterday's rebellions, today's efforts, and tomorrow's developments, Stalin said. Stalin also told the assembly that the Tamil Nadu government would spend an amount of Rs 8.14 crore to renovate the Periyar memorial at Vaikom. He also said that the government would make efforts to set up a memorial at Aruvikutti where Periyar was first jailed. The book Vaikom Protest, written by scholar and researcher Pazha Adhiyaman in Tamil would be translated to Malayalam and also published in English, Telugu, and Kannada, he told the Assembly. He also said that a book on Vaikom movement would be published by the Text Book and Educational Service Corporation of the state government and added that competitions would be held in schools, colleges and universities in Tamil Nadu on elocution and essays on the Vaikom Satyagraha. Stalin said that the state government was taking steps to issue a commemorative stamp to mark the centenary of Vaikom Satyagraha.

Online 'girlfriend' dupes Delhi man of Rs 1.5 lakh

Investigators say that luring innocent people by showing recorded obscene videos has become a common modus operandi of cybercriminals. NEW DELHI: Twenty-two-year-old Naved Khan, a resident of Laxmi Nagar here, recently received a WhatsApp message on his mobile phone which read, Will you romance with me? Reply Yes/No. Seconds after responding with a Yes, he got a video call from a girl who introduced herself as Pooja from Agra. She started undressing and asked me to take off my trousers. I didn't remove them completely but she made a recording. Later, I received a WhatsApp message that they have made my recording and are going to put it on social media sites,Khan wrote in his complaint to the police. He added, Out of fear, I uninstalled WhatsApp and deleted all my social media accounts. But the next day I got a call from someone who introduced himself as an officer of Delhi Police's cyber cell. He said that he has a complaint against me based on which he was going to issue a warrant. The fraudster asked him to make a video call for which Khan reinstalled WhatsApp and spoke to him. He then asked Khan to contact one Monu Panchal who would help him get his video deleted. When Khan called Panchal, he demanded Rs 21,800 to get the job done. He also promised that the money would be returned later. He gave me an account number of Axis Bank which was in the name of Jatin Kukreja. I transferred the money but was then asked to deposit the same amount three more times totalling Rs 64,500 as three more videos had to be deleted. I was given another account of HDFC bank which was in the name of Ramgopal,Khan said in his complaint which has been converted into an FIR by police. Sometime later, Khan again got a call from Panchal who said that he had written an email to the cyber cell officer to process his case and that he should talk to him. When I called the cyber cell officer, he demanded Rs 1.5 lakh more. Upon my request, he reduced the amount and I paid the money. But he kept on asking for more money,Khan said, adding that he had no option but to report the matter to police. According to the cyber cell, the matter is being probed and efforts are on to identify the criminals. Investigators say that luring innocent people by showing recorded obscene videos has become a common modus operandi of cybercriminals. A gang of cybercriminals, who used to blackmail people by making obscene video calls, was busted in Shahdara on March 27, officials said.

Muraleedharan to approach Congress chief over repeated humiliations

Says Sudhakaran deliberately sidelined him at Vaikom Satyagraha centenary celebrations THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:The open hostility between Congress state president K Sudhakaran and senior party MP K Muraleedharan has gone up a notch. The KPCCs Vaikom Satyagraha centenary celebrations, held on Thursday, have opened another can of worms for Sudhakaran, with Muraleedharan alleging that he was deliberately sidelined at the event. A peeved Muraleedharan has decided to approach AICC president Mallikarjun Kharge against what he termed as repeated instances of humiliation at the hands of Sudhakaran. It was just four weeks ago that Sudhakaran first took up the cudgels against Muraleedharan and Kozhikode MP M K Raghavan. He issued a notice to the pair for their criticism of the state leadership. The discord saw K C Venugopal, national general secretary (organisation), calling all the MPs, including Sudhakaran, who is also the Kannur MP, for a meeting at his home in Delhi. While the differences of opinion were resolved, the Vaikom event presented fresh complications for Sudhakaran. Vadakara MP Muraleedharan told TNIE that he was sidelined at the event, inaugurated by Kharge, where he was not invited to address the gathering. When state Congress vice-president V P Sajeendran forgot to welcome me at the event, Sudhakarans close confidant K Jayanth reminded him about the omission. While leaders, including Sudhakaran, Leader of Opposition V D Satheesan, Venugopal, national general secretary in-charge of the state Tariq Anwar, UDF convenor M M Hassan and senior leader Ramesh Chennithala spoke, I was not invited to deliver my speech. I expressed my strong displeasure to Venugopal for the humiliation, said Muraleedharan. Venugopal brought the lapse to the attention of Sudhakaran, who apologised to Muraleedharan on the dais itself. But the latter was in no mood to relent. I told Venugopal that if my services were no longer required by the party, I may as well stop singing while I can still carry a tune, a fuming Muraleedharan told TNIE. Another senior leader K C Joseph read out Rahul Gandhis message for the year-long event. My name was also avoided from the advertisement issued by party mouthpiece Veekshanam. Whats the point of Sudhakarans repeated apologies? I have decided to take up the issue with the Congress president, said Muraleedharan. A Sudhakaran loyalist rubbished Muraleedharans allegations claiming that it was not deliberate.Shashi Tharoor and other parliamentarians from the state were provided seating in the second row at the Vaikom event. Tharoor was late to the event, but he dragged his chair to the front row and sat through the programme, a source close to the Thiruvananthapuram MP said.

How chapati made its way into Kerala

The introduction of the chapati on a large scale would have helped drive the agitation, but as with all food, that is difficult to quantify. VAIKOM:It set in motion a social and gastronomic revolution! The centenary of the Vaikom Satyagraha, a non-violent agitation to eradicate untouchability in the erstwhile Kingdom of Travancore, is also an occasion to celebrate the mass introduction of the humble chapati in the state. People from various regions of pre-Independence India reached Vaikom to take part in the 19-month-long agitation and play a role in shaping the credentials of the future nation. They included a group of Sikh agitators from Punjab, under the Shiromani Prabandhak Committee. According to P K Harikumar, a historian, who has compiled details of the satyagraha, people arrived from various corners of the mainland to make the stir a success. The Sikh community played a major role. The group camped at the satyagraha grounds and prepared food, including chapati and halwa, and distributed it for free of cost among the agitators. It was similar to the scenes when farmers from Punjab agitated in Delhi against the anti-farmer policies. The Sikh group was part of the satyagraha for more than two months, he told TNIE. They set up a langar community kitchen in Vaikom. Langars were introduced by Sikhisms gurus and have been part of the community for centuries, serving food to all who visit gurdwaras. The introduction of the chapati on a large scale would have helped drive the agitation, but as with all food, that is difficult to quantify. The chapati was not common in Travancore, Kochi or Malabar. So, we believe the Vaikom Satyagraha paved the way for the introduction of the dish in the state, a historian said.

Talcum Powder: Use of talcum powder to spread fragrance, know its disadvantages

Talcum Powder Side Effects: Winter is gone. Summer has knocked. People have started using fans in their homes. However, due to the slight coolness in the weather, air conditioners and coolers are not being used right now. People keep themselves fresh and the stench does not reach others. Use powder for this. But do you know that by applying the powder you feel fresh? The fragrance travels far. Actually, there are many disadvantages to applying it. Today, we will inform you about the damage caused by the application of talcum powder. These are the disadvantages of applying talcum powder Risk of skin infection When the heat is high in the summer season, women or men use talcum powder in the underarm under the neck. But its danger is that the risk of skin infection increases greatly. The logic behind this is that starch is used in talcum powder. Starch dries the sweat, but later it remains stuck on the body. This increases the risk of skin infection. Dryness comes to the skin Women use talcum powder in summer. It does this so that the colour is visible and there is no sweating on the face. But by doing this, fairness can come for some time. But in the long run, it can be harmful. Actually, by doing this, dryness starts coming into the skin. Due to this, the problem of dryness starts increasing. Many times the problem of rashes also arises due to excessive use of powder. That's why to take special care while applying powder. Pores can become clogged There are pores in the skin. Toxins are released from the body in the form of sweat through these pores. These pores can be closed by applying powder.

May have respiratory problems The use of talcum powder can increase the problem of allergies. This can cause difficulty in breathing. When we breathe, small particles of powder can reach the lungs through the air. Due to this, problems like difficulty in breathing, nervousness, restlessness, and cough can arise.

TikTok's label propaganda fall flat in 'huge win' for Russia

More than a third of the Russian state propaganda accounts were unlabeled, despite a labelling policy announced by TikTok a year ago. WASHINGTON: A year ago, following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, TikTok started labelling accounts operated by Russian state propaganda agencies as a way to tell users they were being exposed to Kremlin disinformation. An analysis a year later shows the policy has been applied inconsistently. It ignores dozens of accounts with millions of followers. Even when used, labels have little impact on Russia's ability to exploit TikTok's powerful algorithms as part of its effort to shape public opinion about the war. Researchers at the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a bipartisan, transatlantic nonprofit operated by the German Marshall Fund that studies authoritarian disinformation, on Thursday published a report that identified nearly 80 TikTok accounts operated by Russian state outlets like RT or Sputnik or by individuals linked to them, including RT's editor-in-chief. ALSO READ | Holocaust survivor shares on TikTok to educate young people More than a third of the accounts were unlabeled, despite a labelling policy announced by TikTok a year ago. The labels, which appear in bold immediately below an account's name, read Russia state-controlled media. Clicking on the label brings up more information, including a description that he government has control over the account's editorial content. The accounts have spread pro-Russian propaganda about the invasion of Ukraine as well as false and misleading claims about the U.S. and the international coalition that stands against Russia's war. US to hold biggest satanic gathering in history, claims one of the videos on Sputnik. Brasil, a Russian media account currently unlabeled on TikTok. Other videos posted by the account blame the U.S. for the war in Ukraine, claim the U.S. will start a nuclear war, and suggest the U.S. is working to make Brazil invade Iran. ALSO READ | UK bans TikTok on government devices RT Mexico, one of the most popular unlabeled accounts, has posted multiple videos playing up tension between the U.S. and Mexico over immigration and drugs. This is a huge win for Russian propaganda that they're able to reach such large audiences on TikTok, said Joe Bodnar, a research analyst at Alliance for Securing Democracy. TikTok is not taking it as seriously as other platforms. That charge comes as the video-sharing platform, owned by Chinese company ByteDance, faces questions in Washington about its ties to the government as well as concerns about privacy, surveillance and harmful content. Britain, Canada, the U.S. federal government and a growing number of American states are among the governments that have already banned TikTok on government-issued devices. Some lawmakers in the U.S. have floated the idea of a complete ban on the app unless ByteDance agreed to sell its U.S. assets to another company. ALSO READ | US: Lawmakers backing free speech oppose TikTok ban TikTok has labelled more than 120 accounts, a spokesperson for the platform told The Associated Press on Tuesday. The platform's policy covers outlets and organizations, not individuals, a loophole that allows RT's editor-in-chief to remain unlabeled. The platform said it would label many of the other accounts identified by researchers after being contacted by the AP. This is an ongoing process and we'll continue to review new accounts and add labels as and when they join the platform, the company said in an emailed statement. Other tech companies have taken a more aggressive approach to Russian disinformation. Last year, Google blocked YouTube channels operated by Russian state media within Europe. The company also has initiated pre-bunking programs designed to blunt the effect of disinformation. Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, also labels foreign state media and has exposed and eliminated sprawling disinformation networks tied to Russia. Once known largely for its popularity among teens, TikTok has emerged as a leading source of information and misinformation. More than two-thirds of American teens are on the platform, which is among the world's most popular websites. Labels have become a common way for social media platforms to designate content from state-controlled media and alert users without removing the content. TikTok announced its labelling effort in March 2022, saying that in response to the war in Ukraine, we're expediting the rollout of our state media policy to bring viewers context to evaluate the content they consume on our platform. While the labels may provide more information about an account, they aren't doing much to reduce overall engagement with Russian propaganda on TikTok, suggesting users either don't see or don't care about the labels. RT, one of Russia's top state-controlled outlets, has more followers on TikTok than The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal, despite a label classifying RT as Russia state-controlled media. Another labelled TikTok account, RT en Espanol, has received more likes than other Spanish-language news outlets including Telemundo, Univision or El Pais. TikTok's use of labelling came up during a recent congressional hearing in which TikTok's CEO was questioned about the platform's ties to China and its record on safety and privacy. In his testimony, Shou Zi Chew said TikTok's labelling policy would also extend to Chinese state media outlets. Lawmakers were sceptical of his explanations. I worry that TikTok is the world's most powerful and extensive propaganda machine, U.S. Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas, said during last week's hearing.

Gwyneth Paltrow gets vindication at ski collision trial

A jury awarded Paltrow $1 a symbolic amount she asked for to show it wasn't about money and delivered her the vindication she sought PARK CITY: Gwyneth Paltrow wasn't to blame for a 2016 collision with a retired optometrist on a beginner run at a posh Utah ski resort during a family vacation, a jury decided Thursday following a live-streamed trial that became a pop culture fixation. A jury awarded Paltrow $1 a symbolic amount she asked for to show it wasn't about money and delivered her the vindication she sought when she opted to take it to trial rather than settle out of court. I felt that acquiescing to a false claim compromised my integrity, Paltrow said in a statement released by her representatives that she also posted as an Instagram story for her 8.3 million followers. She also thanked the judge and jury for their work. As Paltrow left court she touched Terry Sanderson's shoulder and told him, I wish you well, he told reporters outside court. He responded, Thank you dear. Paltrow's attorney, Steve Owens, added in a statement he read outside court that Gwyneth has a history of advocating for what she believes in this situation was no different and she will continue to stand up for what is right. Paltrow, an actor who in recent years has refashioned herself into a celebrity wellness entrepreneur, looked to her attorneys with a pursed lips smile when the judge read the eight-member jury's verdict in the Park City courtroom. She sat intently through two weeks of testimony in what became the biggest celebrity court case since actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard faced off last year. After the verdict was read, the judge polled the jury, which was unanimous on the decision. In civil court in Utah, only three-fourths of jurors need to agree on a verdict. The attorney fees Paltrow asked for in her countersuit were not included in the jury's verdict, leaving the bulk of the final award for the Park City judge to decide. Addressing reporters after the verdict, Sanderson questioned whether the lawsuit was worth it and said he believed that people tend to naturally trust celebrities like Paltrow. Gwyneth Paltrow speaks with retired optometrist Terry Sanderson, left, as she walks out of the courtroom following the reading of the verdict in their lawsuit trial. (Photo | AP) You get some assumed credibility from being a famous person, Sanderson said. Really, who wants to take on a celebrity? The dismissal concludes two weeks of courtroom proceedings that hinged largely on reputation rather than the monetary damages at stake in the case. Paltrow's attorneys described the complaint against her as utter B.S. and painted the Goop founder-CEO as uniquely vulnerable to unfair, frivolous lawsuits due to her celebrity. Paltrow took the witness stand during the trial to insist that the collision wasn't her fault, and to describe how she was stunned when she felt a body pressing against me and a very strange grunting noise. Throughout the trial, the word uphill became synonymous with guilty, as attorneys focused on a largely unknown skiing code of conduct that stipulates that the skier who is downhill or ahead on the slope has the right of way. Worldwide audiences followed the celebrity trial as if it were episodic television. Viewers scrutinized both Paltrow and Sanderson's motives while attorneys directed questions to witnesses that often had less to do with the collision and more to do with their client's reputations. The trial took place in Park City, a resort town known for hosting the annual Sundance Film Festival, where early in her career Paltrow would appear for the premieres of her movies including 1998's Sliding Doors, at a time when she was known primarily as an actor, not a lifestyle influencer. Paltrow is also known for her roles in Shakespeare in Love and Iron Man movies. The jury's decision marks a painful court defeat for Sanderson, the man who sued Paltrow for more than $300,000 over injuries he sustained when they crashed on the ski slope at Deer Valley Resort. He never returned home that night as the same man. Terry has tried to get off that mountain but he's really still there, attorney Robert Sykes said during closing arguments. Both parties blamed the other for the collision. Sanderson, 76, broke four ribs and sustained a concussion after the two tumbled down the slope, with Paltrow landing on top of him. He filed an amended complaint after an earlier $3.1 million lawsuit was dismissed. In response, Paltrow countersued for $1 and attorney fees, a symbolic action that mirrors Taylor Swift's response to a radio host's defamation lawsuit. Swift was awarded $1 in 2017. Paltrow's defence team represented Sanderson as an angry, aging and unsympathetic man who had over the years become obsessed with his lawsuit against Paltrow. They argued that Paltrow wasn't at fault in the crash and also said, regardless of blame, that Sanderson was overstating the extent of his injuries.

Rahul Gandhi's disqualification 'indicates brutal vindictiveness of the Modi govt': Kharge

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on said the hurried disqualification of Rahul Gandhi from the Lok Sabha was the darkest day in Indian democracy and indicated the rutal vindictiveness of the Narendra Modi government. Kharge claimed the BJP government manipulated the entire matter beginning with the filing of the defamation case against Gandhi, for his remarks during an election campaign speech back in 2019 in Kolar, Karnataka, and ending with his disqualification on the very next day of his conviction. The manipulations of the BJP government in the matter have to be pointed out and if you see the timeline of the whole case it would be clear from that, he said. The Congress chief further said that such actions are condemnable, destroy the democratic norms of our country and push us towards a dictatorial regime. He also said that the haste with which Gandhi was disqualified, despite the trial court giving him one month to file an appeal against his conviction and sentence, indicates the brutal vindictiveness of the Modi government. Kharge was speaking in Kottayam, Kerala at the inauguration of the year-long centenary celebrations of the Vaikom Satyagraha, a renaissance movement against untouchability linked to temple access. The satyagraha, which began on March 30, 1924, and ended on November 23, 1925, was a non-violent agitation for access to the prohibited public environs of the Vaikom Temple in the Kingdom of Travancore.
