IFP- “Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of the Quds Force of Iran’s Revolution Guards, is among the most popular public figures in Iran, where supporters see him as a selfless national hero who has been fighting Iran’s enemies,” wrote the Atlantic Council in a recent report. “It is interesting to note that his supporters sometimes call Soleimani by the nameHaj-Qassem; or even ‘ Sardar-e Delha, ’ the commander of hearts,” it added. “Soleimani is mostly seen wearing khaki pants and shirts in the battlefield. He also projects a fatherly image. In March 2015, a video of him appeared on the Internet, in which he advised one of his young supporters to be respectful to his parents and to fulfill their wishes. These characteristics support his image as a charismatic, yet modest soldier.” “His popularity stems largely from the Iranian mindset and the appreciation for selflessness and modesty,” the article remarked, adding that Iranians tend to supportcharismatic and humble leaders.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who backed President Donald Trump’s campaign, said Sunday that he does not think a special prosecutor is needed to investigate allegations about Trump’s relationship with Russia. “The Justice Department over the course of time has shown itself with the professionals that are there to have the ability to investigate these type of things,” Christie told CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union. “This is whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, we’ve seen it happen on both sides, when a special prosecutor gets involved, the thing gets completely out of control. And I think that doesn't serve anybody's purposes.” “We have a lot of important problems to deal with in this country,” he added. “I’m not saying that’s not one of them, but I believe the Justice Department can handle it.” Democrats, citing Attorney General Jeff Sessionsinvolvement with the Trump campaign, have been calling for an independent investigation into allegations that the president’s campaign aides were in contact with the Russian government before the election, as well as other suggestions of Russian meddling.

Christie, who said he has hosted more than 160 town halls during his seven years as governor of New Jersey, said the anger is no excuse for Republicans not to show. “This happens on both sides of the aisle. The fact is that right now, the heat is on the Republicans. It’s on us,” he told Tapper. “And I said this at a meeting with the governors yesterday, that we asked for authority to change the country. We now have two-thirds of the statehouses in America, we have the House, we have the Senate and we have the White House. It’s now on us to produce results, and one of the things that we need to do is engage with the public.” “Now, we understand that a lot of these protesters are professional protesters, people with an agenda, OK,” he added, citing organized protests by teachers unions at his own town halls as an example. “But you have to work through that, and you’ve got to stand up, let them yell themselves out.”

S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, and of course the president himself.” http://politi.co/2lnwh3z -- NYT A1, “Immigration Agents Discover New Freedom to Deport Under Trump,” by Nick Kulish, Caitlin Dickerson and Ron Nixon: “A whirlwind of activity has overtaken ICE headquarters in Washington in recent weeks, with employees attending back-to-back meetings about how to quickly carry out President Trump’s plans. ‘Some people are like: “This is great. Let’s give them all the tools they need,”’ said a senior staff member at headquarters, who joined the department under the administration of George W. Bush. But, the official added, ‘other people are a little bit more hesitant and fearful about how quickly things are moving.’ Two officials in Washington said that the shift — and the new enthusiasm that has come with it — seems to have encouraged pro-Trump political comments and banter that struck the officials as brazen or gung-ho, like remarks about their jobs becomingfun.

The relaunch will be accompanied by some Android-based phones like the Nokia 6 -- to be launched in China on February 26 -- and the Nokia 8, to be showcased at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which begins on February 27. Are the ever-evolving, 4G-conscious Indian smartphone consumers likely to embrace an upgraded 3310, which is expected to cost a little over Rs 4,000? "We have to understand that, in India, we still have people who don't have a mobile phone. And if Nokia, with its adequate distribution network, is able to tap that near-edge market, the 3310 has the potential to do wonders and become a leading handset," Faisal Kawoosa, Principal Analyst, Telecoms, CyberMedia Research (CMR), told IANS. "There is still enough of India that can consume it. After all, in India, three of the top 20 handsets that are deployed are still from Nokia," Kawoosa added.

Tech firms are racing to develop products that will be compatible with 5G, shorthand for the fifth generation of networks, which promise blazing fast connectivity for a generation used to streaming movies and TV directly to phones. South Korean carrier KT Corp aims to offer trial 5G services during the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. The first large-scale commercial deployment of the technology is expected in 2020. Forrester analyst Thomas Husson said ZTE was using the phone to "showcase innovation" and "offer a glimpse into the future when people will be able to download full movies in seconds" but it was not likely to be a big seller. "The sad reality is that this smartphone will not end up in consumers' pockets because both 5G and Virtual Reality are still years away to be a mass-market consumer reality," he added. Founded in 1985, ZTE offers telecom equipment and services and has customers in more than 160 countries, according to the company.
