Good news for fans of Daenerys, Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister of Game of Thrones, as recent reports reveal that their respective stars Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington and Peter Dinklage have more screen time in the upcoming Season 7 of the epic fantasy series.
Speaking to media, Dinklage said: "I've worked more days this season than I have in quite some time."
"When I first read this season I thought: 'Damn, I got to learn some lines! We're actually filming longer now. I don't know how that's happening," Clarke said.
"Everyone gets a bigger slice of the pie," Harrington also added.
The co-showrunner Dan Weiss explained the rationale behind it, "You kill a couple dozen characters, the people who are left by default need to carry more dramatic weight," Weiss said.
He added that there was a second reason as well.
"As the worlds start to converge the characters who haven't met each other before start to meet each other and there are more main characters together in each other's storylines than ever before," Weiss said.
The seventh season of "Game of Thrones" series is set to premiere on July 16 while the final season is expected to air in 2018....
The finance ministry has initiated the process for finding new chief of the country's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) as Arundhati Bhattacharya's extended term comes to an end on October 6."Department of Financial Services has communicated to Banks Board Bureau the emerging vacancies at the top level of PSU banks which will have to be filled during course of the year," a senior finance ministry official said.This also includes chairman and one managing director of the SBI, which alone has market share of more than 20 per cent.Bhattacharya will complete her four-year term as chairperson of SBI on October 6.Besides chairman, SBI has four managing directors looking after different departments.The post assumes significance as the bank has recently merged five associates and the Bharatiya Mahila Bank (BMB) pushing SBI into the league of top 50 banks globally in terms of assets.State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur (SBBJ), State Bank of Hyderabad (SBH), State Bank of Mysore (SBM), State Bank of Patiala (SBP) and State Bank of Travancore (SBT), besides BMB, merged with SBI with effect from April 1. The process of integration would at least take a year.The government had in February approved the merger of these five associate banks with SBI. Later in March, the Cabinet approved merger of BMB as well.SBI first merged State Bank of Saurashtra with itself in 2008. Two years later, State Bank of Indore was merged with it.For the fourth quarter ended March 2017, the bank reported more than doubling of its net profit on the back of increased lending and reduction in provisioning for bad loans.Net profit of the bank on standalone basis rose to Rs 2,814.82 crore for the March quarter as against Rs 1,263.81 crore in the same period of previous fiscal 2015-16.For the entire fiscal ended March 2017, the net profit of the bank improved by 5.36 per cent to Rs 10,484crore as against Rs 9,951 crore in the previous fiscal.With stock prices inching up, SBI has lined up share sale through...
"Severe underemployment" and not unemployment is a more serious problem as a job that needs to be done by one person is often performed by two or more workers, says the government's policy think tank Niti Aayog.This assertion comes amid Congress's criticism of the Narendra Modi government over creating lesser jobs.In its draft three-year action agenda report for 2017-18 to 2019-20, the Niti Aayog stressed on the need for creation of high-productivity and high-wage jobs."Indeed, unemployment is the lesser of India's problems.The more serious problem, instead, is severe underemployment.A job that one worker can perform is often performed by two or more workers," it said.The draft report was circulated among the Governing Council members (consisting of chief ministers of all states and others) of the Niti Aayog on April 23.Contrary to some assertions that India's growth has been jobless, the Employment Unemployment Surveys of the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO), which till date remain the most reliable sources of information on the country's employment situation, have consistently reported low and stable rates of unemployment over more than three decades, it said.Citing examples, the Niti Aayog said as per NSSO survey, in 2011-12, 49 per cent of the work force was employed in agriculture but the sector contributed only 17 per cent of India's GDP at current prices.Second in 2010-11, firms with less than 20 workers employed 72 per cent of India's manufacturing workforce but contributed only 12 per cent of manufacturing output, it said.According to 2006-07 NSSO survey of service firms, the 650 largest enterprises accounted for 38 per cent of services output but only employed two per cent of service workers."Put another way, the remaining service firms employed 98 per cent of the work force but produced only 62 per cent of the outcome," the report said.Citing the example of China's ageing work force, the Niti Aayog stressed on attracting big firms working in that country...
A Lionel Messi masterclass salvaged some silverware to end Barcelona's season and gave coach Luis Enrique a victorious send-off as the Catalans retained the Copa del Rey with a 3-1 win over Alaves.Messi opened the scoring then helped tee up Neymar and Paco Alcacer to lead Barca to a record 29th Cup triumph after Theo Hernandez's brilliant free-kick had briefly brough Alaves level.Victory means Enrique bows out after three seasons in charge with nine trophies to his name, including the Cup in every year of his reign.However, once again it was Messi who inspired Barca to bounceback from the disappointment of losing their La Liga title to Real Madrid last weekend with a stunning individual display.Barca were without the suspended Luis Suarez and Sergi Roberto and Enrique was forced into another reshuffle just 11 minutes in as Javier Mascherano was forced off with a head injury.Yet, whilst Barca's depth has been much-criticised this season, Andre Gomes deputised ably at right-back after replacing Mascherano and Alcacer took his chance on a rare start on the big stage in Suarez's absence.In stark contrast to Barca's glorious run of six finals in seven years, Alaves were appearing in Spanish football's showpiece for the first time.The Basques were roared on by the more enthusiastic support at a far from full Vicente Calderon in its last competitive fixture before Atletico Madrid move home next season.And Alaves were left wondering what might have been had they gone ahead when Ibai Gomez's effort came back off the post, ricocheted off the back of Barca 'keeper Jasper Cillessen but somehow squirmed along the goal line and not into the net on 27 minutes.Three minutes later Messi kicked off a thrilling four- goal spell in the final 15 minutes of the half as he exchanged passes with Neymar before curling his 54th goal of the season.However, Barca's initial lead only lasted three minutes.On-loan Atletico left-back Hernandez has been courted by Barcelona, but looks set to become...
'Be Unpredictable' Should Be India's Nuclear Strategy Says Parrikar

[caption id="attachment_231459" align="aligncenter" width="700"] 'Be Unpredictable' Should Be India's Nuclear Strategy Says Parrikar[/caption]
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said India should say it will use its nuclear powers "responsibly" instead of stressing on "no first use", but stressed that this was his personal view.
"The concept which said 'Be unpredictable' has to be there. That is our strategy as well," he added.
Speaking at the release of a book "The New Arthashastra: A Security Strategy for India", edited by defence analyst Brig Gurmeet Kanwal (retd.), on Thursday he also said that he used to get threats from his counterpart in a "neighbouring country" every few days, but has got none since the surgical strike.

Talking about India's nuclear doctrine, Parrikar questioned why it is just said that India is for no first use, saying: "Why lot of people say that India is for 'not first use;... Why should I bind myself.
"I should say I am a responsible nuclear power and I will not use it irresponsibly," he said.
The minister himself, as well as Defence Ministry Spokesperson Nitin Wakankar clarified that the comments were his personal opinion, and did not reflect government policy.
"It is not change in any government policy, I am also an individual. As an individual, I get this feeling sometimes. Why should I say I am not going to use it first. I am not saying you have to use it first just because you don't decide that you don't use it," said Parrikar.

"I used to get threats from the defence minister of a neighbouring country every four-five days that they are going to use tactical nuclear weapons. From the day surgical strike happened, no threat has come," he said in an obvious reference to Pakistan but without naming the country.
The surgical strike was carried out by India in the night between September 28 and 29 on terror launch pads across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
"When they realised we can do something which is not well defined, ultimately the written defence strategy does not mean you have to follow it. It should be your guideline," said Parrikar.
