Iraq pauses Mosul operation after civilian bloodbath Iraq has suspended its drive to recapture west Mosul from Islamic State amid international fury over the civilian toll from airstrikes that killed at least 150 people. Last week’s assault is thought to have been one of the deadliest bombing raids for civilians since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. A coalition spokesman did not rule out the possibility of British involvement in the deadly raid. Ukip relief as Douglas Carswell votes leave Ukip's Douglas Carswell is quitting the party to become an independent MP. Nigel Farage, the party’s former leader, recently called on Carswell to quit, accusing him of "actively working against UKIP". Current leader Paul Nuttall said UKIP members will "initially be angry, with a sense of betrayal, but soon they will be breathing a sigh of relief".

The relationship at work should be at arm's length but we don't have any problems with relatives or the partners having equity holding in the company,“ Kumar says. SETTING GROUND RULES Running one of India's leading mobile payment networks cannot be easy and founders of Mobikwik, Bipin Preet Singh and Upasana Taku understand that. “Building a startup from scratch is definitely stressful and this does impact on the personal relationship,“ says Singh. The couple has set ground rules like minimizing contact during work hours and sitting with different teams, not talking about work at home, and spending at least two hours of personal time every day with each other. The rules of engagement laid down by Singh and Taku clearly seem to be working as Mobikwik recently announced an investment of Rs 300 crore for expansion aimed at growing its user base from the current 50 million to 150 million in 2017.

By Vivek Mishra & Anirban Bhattacharya At 19, Dinesh Manjhi is the breadwinner for his family -- three siblings and a 55-year-old mother. But his tryst with adulthood actually began at 12, when his father took him on a 1,500-km journey from their home in Bihar to a farm in Punjab to work as a seasonal worker. This way, he added a valuable extra to what the father saved to bring back home every season. Manjhi's father died of illness in 2013 and the funeral costs left him struggling with a massive debt. So the youngster juggled jobs through the year. When he wasn't labouring in Gurdaspur in Punjab, he was at home in Dumri village in Bihar's Buxar district, eking out a living as a construction worker in the neighbouring town of Muzaffarpur. This earned him Rs 100-Rs 150 day which was much better than what seasonal farm work earned him in Dumri. Manjhi's story, narrated by Sajjad Hassan in a chapter in the India Exclusion Report (2013-14), echoes the life of those described by Jan Breman, a Dutch sociologist, as "wage hunters and gatherers".

Each year more than 15,000 earthquakes are recorded in New Zealand, but only about 150 are large enough to be felt. The research paper, led by GNS, included the work of 29 co-authors from 11 national and international institutes such as the NASA laboratory in California and the University of Leeds in Britain.

Trump and Ryan indicated they hope to proceed to tax reform a task that will grow more difficult by the loss of more than $150 billion in budgetary savings that would have been included in the health care bill. For a Republican Party used to being in the opposition, it was a calamitous result for its first test at governing. Moving from an opposition party to a governing party comes with growing pains, Ryan told reporters Friday, trying to put a positive spin on the unmitigated legislative disaster. And were feeling those growing pains today.

A member of India's Parliament was unrepentant after repeatedly slapping the 62-year-old duty manager of an Air India flight with his sandal in a rage over a coupon for a business-class seat on an economy-only class flight. Police opened an investigation against Ravindra Gaikwad, a member of Parliament, after Air India filed a pair of complaints that he had assaulted one of its crew Thursday and delayed the plane's next flight to Goa, disrupting the schedules of its 150 passengers. He also was banned from flying by the Federation of Indian Airlines, including on a flight Friday. Gaikwad, from the far-right Shiv Sena political party that is part of India's ruling coalition, filed his own complaint with police, saying he had been insulted, pushed and yelled at during the confrontation. Air India officials said the legislator's office was told in advance that Flight AI 852, a 1,400-kilometer trip from Pune to New Delhi, didn't have business-class seats.

Eleven Syrians were killed when their inflatable boat sank off the country's Aegean coast, Turkish media reported Friday. The Dogan news agency said five of the dead were children, and a baby rescued in critical condition was among 11 people who survived the accident. Television footage showed rescue workers standing next to covered bodies near the Turkish resort town of Kusadasi. Media reports said two Turks, thought to be people-smugglers, had been detained. The boat capsized in strong wind and waves and was thought to be trying to reach the Greek island of Samos. The deaths came a year after a European Union-Turkey agreement to curb illegal migration, which has significantly reduced the number of migrants trying to reach the bloc from Turkey. The U.N. refugee agency said more than 3,620 refugees and migrants had crossed from Turkey to Greece this year, compared with nearly 150,000 arrivals in the equivalent period last year before the agreement was signed.

The northern and southern lights are probably the eeriest cosmic views available to us here on Earth, and 150 people on a flight from New Zealand learned that first-hand this week. The Air New Zealand charter flight took off on March 23 to give passengers their best shot at seeing the cosmic lights thanks to the 12 hours of darkness provided by the equinox.

Last October, it was revealed that Burke Ramsey, JonBenet's brother, is suing a famed forensic pathologist for $150 million after the expert falsely stated that Burke Ramsey killed his sister, according to a court filing. Two months later, Boulder, Colorado, District Attorney Stan Garnett, who is the current prosecutor in the case, told People that he has not wavered from his belief that his predecessor was wrong to publicly clear John, Patsy and Burke from suspicion. John, Burke, the Ramsey family are totally covered by the presumption of innocence and are entitled to that, Garnett said. If we ever change our opinion about that with regard to the Ramseys or anyone else, we will file charges and say what we have to say about the case in open court. Casting JonBenét premieres on Netflix on April 28.

Sometimes it can be frustrating when you're driving around looking for somewhere to park. But most of us would know there are certain no-go areas - such as in front of a driveway or garage. Not this driver, it would seem. Rather annoyingly, the owner of this black Peugeot decided to park the car right outside someone else's garage. It left the owner of this white van unable to get his vehicle out when he was heading to work. Read more: Ferrari worth around £150,000 sent to the...

Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings (Fla.) said Friday he would not be nice to Republicans testifying before the House Rules Committee because they were being "nasty to poor people." Republican Reps. Kevin Brady (Texas) and Greg Walden (Ore.) were testifying about the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare when Hastings accused Republicans of not caring about Americans on Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Walden protested Hastings' claim. "This insinuation that we don't care about people on Medicaid, I am offended by that," Walden said before discussing a program in Oregon he worked on. Hastings then asked Walden about Medicaid funding as his voice grew louder. "OK, I'm going to try and bring the tone down here just a little bit," Walden responded. "I'm not going to bring my tone down!" Hastings said. "I'm mad as hell about what you all are doing, and I don't have to be nice to nobody when you're being nasty to poor people!" In 1989, Hastings was impeached and convicted by Congress for "corrupt conspiracy" by extorting a $150,000 bribe in a case before him when he was a federal judge.
