Flight data recorders also have been recovered from the fuselage and search and rescue operations have been called off, Navy officials informed. The Board of Inquiry will analyse the recorders to ascertain the exact cause of the crash.

The aircraft was on a routine training mission with three personnel on board when it lost contact with air traffic control 25 nautical miles off Goa coast on the night of March 24.

While the body of Lieutenant Kiran Shekhawat was recovered late Thursday night, Commander Nikhil Kuldip Joshi was rescued on the night of the crash by a fishing boat.

Dhoni ODI Retirement

Dhoni ODI Retirement, Important to do something special all the time: India might have crashed out of the World Cup but captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni played a stellar knock. The Indian skipper held fort and kept the hopes alive for the Indian fans till he was run-out by an excellent piece of fielding by Glenn Maxwell.

When asked about his future plans, Dhoni chose to stay clear of a concrete answer and poked fun at the media by asking them to keep up their “research” and speculations.

“What’s important for me is to do something special all the time to contribute to a win”, said Dhoni, “The day I pack my bags, I will pack it and I will be happy.” Dhoni surprised many when he quit Test cricket during the recent series in Australia. Â

However, he was much serious when answering about the chase.

“Our batting can chase 300 plus scores, we have done it a number of times. Today it didn’t go according to plan.”

Dhoni, however, in his own way reminded that his team doesn’t really possess a strong lower-order.

“Our lower order have not been able to contribute”, Dhoni said, “if it was not for Rahane and me, we could have folded for much less.”

He also didn’t forget to remind everyone that India were not a fancied side while coming into the World Cup. Dhoni said that it was the fun dressing room atmosphere that kept the spirits up.

“The tour was a tough one for us. Tests didn’t go our way, ODIs didn’t go our way. It was important to have a good dressing room atmosphere. If you have that it is slightly easy to come back into form.”

The Indian skipper, as usual, was supportive of his mates and said that it was important that he pushed himself back.

“I had to push myself back so that Virat, Rohit and Ajinkya could bat at the top. Health of the batting order is good if Jinx is batting at four and me at five”, concluded the Indian captain.

Twitter ShameonTimesNow

Twitter ShameonTimesNow, Team India lost to Australia by 95 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground, on Thursday.

The defeat did not trigger much anger among cricket lovers, but the channel started posting humiliating messages about the team’s performance on Twitter. Goswami also discussed India’s loss in the series on the channel’s debate programme late in the evening.

Debating tonight on @thenewshour: Surrender without a fight! A total washout in #Sydney: Can we be in denial?

– TIMES NOW (@TimesNow) March 26, 2015

Some of tweets posted by Times Now include comments from a senior sports journalist Kishore Bhimani, former Indian test cricketer Atul Wasan and others who found India’s performance on Thursday inefficient.

We feel humiliated that we went down without a fight: Kishore Bhimani, Senior Sports Journalist

We are angry that there was no leadership in today’s game against Australia: Kishore Bhimani, Senior Sports Journalist

There was no planning & body language was terrible in today’s match. Kohli came to bowl instead of Ashwin:Kishore Bhimani, Sports Journalist

We lost because we were not good enough like Australia: Atul Wasan, Former Indian Test Cricketer

We had no logic & no dedication in this game. They played the game as if they were not answerable to anyone: Saad Bin Jung, Fmr Ranji Player

Despite immense effort, the channel failed to sell out their strategy of shaming team India, and instead brought shame upon themselves.

Instead of falling for the channel’s theories, cricket fans expressed their support to team India and its captain MS Dhoni.

Champion u were..champion u r…champion u WL alwyz b…thanks 4 giving so many proud moments !!!#DareToBeDhoni: Rekha Jain ?

They lashed out at the channel for the debate hosted by Goswami, calling it unprofessional journalism.

Salman Khan Hit and Run

Salman Khan Hit and Run, All eyes are set on the hit-and-run case in which Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, charged with killing one person and injuring four by ramming his car into a shop in 2002, would appear in court today to put up his defence and explain the circumstances that led to the mishap.

It would be a crucial test for the 49-year-old actor as he gets an opportunity to give his version about the mishap that occurred in the wee hours of September 28, 2002 when his car ran over people sleeping on pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra in Mumbai.

Judge DW Deshpande has summoned Mr Khan to appear today to give his statement under section 313 of Code of Criminal Procedures (CrPc) which comes at the fag end of the trial after the prosecution closed its evidence by examining more than 25 witnesses in court.

Under this provision of CrPc, not only the accused gets a chance to put across his contention on the evidence adduced by the prosecution but also the court can ask him questions to clarify any ambiguity that may have cropped up during the trial, special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat told the Press Trust of India.

After his statement is recorded, Mr Khan would also get an opportunity to examine defence witnesses if he wants to do so.

The court would then hear arguments of both the sides before giving its verdict, Mr Gharat said.

This is a fresh trial being held in a sessions court after a Magistrate added the charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder which lays down punishment up to ten years.

Video shows police beating: Floyd Dent Beating

Video shows police beating: Floyd Dent Beating, Fighting back tears, a Detroit man and longtime auto worker with no criminal history, described how Inkster police officers dragged him from his car one night in January, choked him, beat him and Tasered him during a traffic stop that was caught on patrol car video.

“He was beating me upside the head,” Floyd Dent, 57, told a horde of reporters and TV crews during a press conference at his attorney’s office Wednesday afternoon, as tears trickled his cheeks. “I was trying to protect my face with my right arm. I heard one of them say, ‘tase the M…F. ‘”

The Jan. 28 incident was caught on police video cameras and is making national news. It shows Inkster police pulling over Dent in his 2011 tan Cadillac near South River Park Drive and Inkster Drive shortly before 10 p.m. The two officers approach with their guns drawn. As Dent opens the door, they pull him out and shove him to the ground. Dent does not appear in the video to be resisting arrest.

As he is on the ground, a police officer later identified as William Melendez has him in a choke hold, and is repeatedly pounding him on his head. A second officer is attempting to handcuff him behind his back, but Dent has his right arm up, trying to protect his face and head against Melendez.

Another officer arrives and kicks him, and then another officer Tasers Dent in the thigh and stomach as he is handcuffed. Dent, who has worked for Ford for 37 years, said he was hospitalized for two days for injuries to his face and head.

Pillars Of Eternity

Pillars Of Eternity, If you like RPGs you must play Pillars of Eternity. If you like RPGs but only have five minutes, you must play its character creation.

Obsidian’s Kickstarted spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate boasts a great deal of complexity and depth, with a strong emphasis on player choice. At least that’s what I’ve gleaned from the first 300 seconds of the game.

Behold the pulsating adventure of its Steam page description:

Prepare to be enchanted by a world where the choices you make and the paths you choose shape your destiny. Obsidian Entertainment, the developer of Fallout: New Vegas and South Park: The Stick of Truth, together with Paradox Interactive is proud to present Pillars of Eternity.

Recapture the deep sense of exploration, the joy of a pulsating adventure, and the thrill of leading your own band of companions across a new fantasy realm and into the depths of monster-infested dungeons in search of lost treasures and ancient mysteries.

So gather your party, venture forth, and embrace adventure as you delve into a realm of wonder, nostalgia, and the excitement of classic RPGs with Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity!

But before you do that, create a character. To be honest, I sped through what we did get to see-I easily could have gone 15 minutes in character creation alone.
