Music and comedy have a high proportion of views to subscribers. Frequent updates, at least twice a week, seem to be another must-do. It’s hard work. Sejal Kumar, who creates videos on fashion and lifestyle, as well as on her own life, has done sponsored videos with Benetton and Westside. These bring in extra money, as do product placements. Apart from YouTube, there are Instagram posts and websites that some like Geeky Ranjit (www. tech2buzz.com) maintain on their own. Monthly earnings, after a channel hits a million views and one lakh subscribers, can range between Rs 30,000 in a bad month to Rs 80,000 in a good one. As views and subscribers go up, so do earnings, but not necessarily in proportion. “It’s possible to make a living but there are several factors — like where you are based, whether you are living with your parents or have to pay rent, and the number of people you need for your shoots,” says Shalini Samuel, who runs the YouTube channel Knot Me Pretty.

There has been a dramatic rise in the number of civilians killed in the fight against ISIL in Syria and Iraq. Rights groups who monitor deaths of civilians in both countries have said dozens of people have been killed this week in three separate air strikes. Most of those who died were in the Iraqi city of Mosul. The US-led coalition on Saturday admitted to carrying out air raids at a location in west Mosul where scores of civilians were reportedly killed last week. Several more were killed in northern Syria, when bombs were dropped on a school sheltering people and on a mosque. The US is investigating the incident. So, what is behind what appears to be an increase in the number of air raids against ISIL? And why has there been a sharp increase in the number of civilian deaths? Presenter : Martine Dennis Guests: Mark Kimmitt - retired US brigadier general who served as the deputy director of pperations and chief military spokesman in Iraq Ahmed Rushdi - director of the House of Iraqi Expertise Foundation Chris Woods - director of airwars.

Iran was a very important market for New Zealand in the 1980s. We were selling a quarter of our sheepmeat there before red tape and bureaucracy put a halt to the trade in the 1990s, he said. New Zealand updated its regulations for doing business with Iran in February last year after the removal of US-led sanctions against the country. Stuff.com further quoted Meat Industry Association chief executive Tim Ritchie as saying that the prospect of sheepmeat trade with Iran was positive because any new trade with countries would add to the competitiveness of the industry, hopefully boosting returns for product.

A third candidate, retired judge Woo Kwok-hing, got 21 votes.
