President Donald Trump visits areas affected by Florence, promises residents aid

Washington, Sep 20 (UITV/IANS) - President Donald Trump on Wednesday visited the two states most heavily affected by Hurricane Florence and promised that "a lot of money" will be coming from Washington and significant resources will be invested in reconstruction in the region, although he also sparked controversy by expressing interest in an area where he owns a golf course.

Trump travelled to North and South Carolina, which were deluged last week by a storm that killed at least 36 people in the region, forced the evacuation of thousands and caused economic damage valued at up to $60 billion, according to preliminary estimates, Efe reported.

Chicago Congress: Paeans to Hindu unity in shadow of 'nemesis' long deceased

Sep 19 (UITV/IANS) - At its best, speeches at the recently concluded World Hindu Congress echoed the soaring spiritual ideals evoked by Swami Vivekananda in Chicago 125 years ago.

Even Mohan Bhagwat, Sarsangchanalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), focused essentially on the need for unity and patience among Hindus while fighting obstacles, of which, he said, there would be many. The burden of excavating implied accusations in Bhagwat's speech fell to his critics.

At the plenary session, the moderator requested speakers to address issues of conflict without naming the speakers or their organisations in the interest of harmony. Other speakers sought to unite the followers of all the great religions that took birth in India -- Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism and Jainism.

Some of the speakers from Bhagwat to Swami Swaroopananda of the Chinmaya Mission, framed the issues before Hinduism in a moral paradigm. Ashwin Adhin, the Vice President of the Republic of Suriname, began his speech in chaste Hindi, later quoting cognitive scientist George Lakoff: "Facts matter immensely. But to be meaningful they have to be framed in terms of their moral importance."

Cate Blanchett's disgusting experience in her acting career

Los Angeles, Sep 20 (UITV/IANS)- Actress Cate Blanchett says she had a disgusting yet fabulous experience while shooting for gothic fantasy-based thriller "The House with a Clock In Its Walls".

Actor Jack Black, who plays a magician in the film, had several pumpkins spewed on his face for an important sequence in the film. Director Eli Roth felt that having pumpkins in a sequence would help create the spooky ambience.

"Watching Jack take a face full of pumpkin was one of the highlights of my career. I have never been so happy," Roth said in a statement to IANS.

To this, Blanchett added: "Probably one of the more disgusting yet...

NASA's Parker Solar Probe sends back first images

Washington, Sep 20 (UITV/IANS)- Just over a month into its seven-year mission to touch the Sun, NASA's Parker Solar Probe has beamed back the first-light data from each of its four instrument suites, the US space agency said.
