An Indian woman has become the youngest female commander of a Boeing 777 aircraft in the world.
Anny Divya gained the title of commander at just 30 years old, overcoming her humble beginnings to achieve what had always been considered an outlandish ambition by her local community. “Luckily my parents have been very supportive, even though a lot of people were telling them not to send me for flying lessons,” Divya told Mirror Now. “There was a lot of resistance all around – especially the fees, which were a lot for [my parents] to pay at that time.” Hailing from Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh, Divya was educated at the Kendriya Vidyalaya, reported Business Standard. Most of her classmates wanted to become engineers and doctors at the advice of their parents, but Divya always wanted to take a different path. “From my childhood I wanted to become a pilot,” she said. #pilot #boeing #airport #femaledomination #femalepilot #news #picoftheday #storyoftheday #newspaper #honour #happiness #pride #femalecommander #india #glassceiling #stereotypes #hsppeningnow #government #annydivya #breakingnews #thegulftoday #vijaywada #city @boeing

A graffiti work of a girl losing a heart-shaped balloon by notorious artist Banksy is Britain's favourite artwork, according to a poll out Wednesday.

The "Balloon Girl" stencil painting, which appeared on the side of shop in east London in 2002, topped the shortlist of best British artworks, as voted on by 2,000 people.
The artwork was removed and sold in 2014 for around £500,000 (560,000 euros, $651,000). John Constable's 1821 pastoral landscape "The Hay Wain" came in second, with Jack Vettriano's 1992 painting "The Singing Butler" coming in third. #artist #happiness #happeningnow #artistsoninstagram #banksy #london #poll #favour #best #design #artwork #painting #colour #records #money #selling #news #newsoftheday #graffiti #instagallery #graphicdesign #breakingnews #world #europe #ideas #innovation #culture #uae #secret #thegulftoday @banksy

A man looking for a dropped cellphone ended up in a stinky situation, tumbling into a building’s trash chute where he had to be rescued.
Washington, D.C., Fire Spokesman Vito Maggiolo says the man was throwing out trash at an apartment building when he thought he dropped the cellphone in the chute. Maggiolo says the man leaned in to check and fell inside.

Maggiolo says the man was able to call 911 from inside the trash chute around 3 a.m. Sunday, though it wasn’t clear what phone he used. A video posted online shows firefighter rescue crews pumping fresh air down the chute to the man through a hose. They eventually hauled him out using a harness.

Maggiolo says the man didn’t appear hurt and was released on the scene. #smelly #happeningnow #news #hilarious #garbage #chute #trash #usa #man #stuck #rescue #operation #firefighter #washingtondc #honour #pride #stinking #cellphone #socialmedia #police #newspaper #newsoftheday #storyoftheday #washingtondc #thegulftoday

Swiss lady jockey Nadia Burger revealed her skills as a professional when she got her horse Chalwa De Breull to win the Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship race (Group 3) ahead of home favourite Cindy Klinkenberg on Lou Raynal and break the hearts of a large band of Purebred Arabian racing fans at the Duindigt racecourse in The Netherlands on Sunday.

Actor Penelope Cruz says she cuts her family and friends' hair.

The 43-year-old enjoys pampering women very much and thinks it can become her second career.

One of the biggest tests of her grooming skills came when she had to get her best friend Salma Hayek ready for a red carpet event, reports femalefirst.co.uk. "I like my career, but I love getting people ready for something because it's a part of me. I can cut anyone's hair no problem. I can do a blow-dry, I can put in rollers," Cruz told Stella magazine. "The power had gone at Salma's house and her make-up artist couldn't come, so she called me and said, 'You have to get me ready for this premiere', and I lit some candles and did her hair and make-up too. No one noticed that it wasn't done by a professional, so I was very proud of that," she added. #actor #hollywood #actress #glamour #gossip #hairstyles #art #talent #picoftheday #beauty #artist #newspaper #penelopecruz #happeningnow #haircut #salmahayek #action #powercut #electricity #news #breakingnews #storyoftheday #picoftheday #newsflash #thegulftoday @salmahayek @penelopecruzoficial

Police in north Italy arrested two Sinti Gypsy brothers accused of robbing bank cashpoints at night while wearing US President Donald Trump masks.

The men, aged 26 and 30, were held after their latest alleged heist when they made off with 92,000 euros after blowing up two cashpoints in the northwest Piedmont region — in Cavallermaggiore, near Cuneo and in Vigone, near Turin.

The two brothers are suspects of pulling off dozens of similar robberies after driving to the bank cash points aboard stolen cars which they had re-sprayed with black paint, police said.
The suspects forced open the slot where the cashpoints dispense money and inserted an explosive device to blow them open, said police.
The suspects were identified from security camera images, according to police. #italy #news #newspaper #news #breakingnews #turin #news #bankrobbery #money #happeningnow #videooftheday #storyoftheday #donaldtrump #mask #thegulftoday #camera #cctv #world #turin #attack

At a cost of Dhs69m, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai has started installation of a smart meter system for taxis. All 10,550 taxis will be fitted with the new meters by the end of June 2018. “The system has updated maps for the entire Emirates rendering easy access to the destinations required,” commented the Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA, Mattar Al Tayer, on the features of the smart taximeter system.

He explained that the features of the system are highlighted by the integration with the Dubai Geographic Addressing System (Makani), and the automated calculation of the toll tariff (Salik) when passing under virtual toll gates in the system without interference on the part of the cabdriver.

Al Tayer said that system has the feature of displaying ‘Out of Service’ screen to allow for a 90-minute flexible break for drivers per shift. “It can also display ‘End of Shift’ screen to ensure that the taxi driver will not be hailed within the last 45 minutes of the shift to facilitate the handing over of the vehicle.” #rta #happiness #happeningnow #dubai #news #newspaper #breakingnews #storyoftheday #picoftheday #news #hitech #technology #science #innovation #mydubai #myuae #emarat #touchscreen #shiftscreen #endofshift #uae #emirati #dubaitaxi #business #news #breakingnews #thegulftoday @rta_dubai

The Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation has successfully completed cold hydrostatic testing, CHT, at Unit 2 at the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant located in Al Dhafra Region of Abu Dhabi. The completion of this milestone, which concluded approximately 12 months after the same tests were successfully completed on Unit 1, demonstrates a commitment to achieving the highest international quality and safety standards, across the four units of the Barakah Plant.

The CHT verifies that welds, joints, pipes and components of the reactor coolant system and associated high-pressure systems are in line with the regulations of the Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation, FANR. The testing, which is a crucial step in preparing the Unit 2 for nuclear operation, was preceded by the integrated flushing of the Unit’s Nuclear Steam Supply Systems, NSSS. #barakahnuclearpowerplant #uae #happiness #happeningnow #breakingnews #nuclearplant #operation #test #successful #abudhabi #dubai #energy #power #powerplant #pride #honour #news #storyoftheday #picoftheday #photography #construction #thegulftoday
