Members of ABVP on Wednesday staged a protest at JNU demanding expulsion of students who went ahead with a protest march on the campus against hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, despite withdrawal of permission by university authorities. JNU students' union joint secretary Saurabh Kumar, who is the only ABVP member in the union, said, "How can an event on Afzal Guru, who attacked the temple of democracy, be organised here. We are demanding expulsion of those who organised it." The university authorities had cancelled the protest march yesterday "fearing" that it might "disrupt" peace on the campus. However, the organisers later claimed they went ahead with the programme despite the cancellation of the permission and held a cultural programme, art and photo exhibition on the issue rather than a protest. Members of ABVP, BJP's students outfit, gathered outside the VC office and shouted slogans terming yesterday's event by a group of students as "anti national" and demanding their "expulsion" ...

The Division: inside Ubisoft's ambitious online shooter 9.2.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
The beta test drew mixed responses, but Ubisoft still thinks it can reinvent the online role-playing shooter with this post-pandemic thriller The city that never sleeps is now a slumbering wasteland of abandoned cars and scattered rubbish. Occasionally, a stray dog pads past, while rats scurry in the darkened alleyways. Manhattan’s iconic buildings have become gravestones, covered in graffiti and deathly silent. As a vision of the post-human New York, The Division is pretty arresting. Like Bungie’s epic space opera Destiny, this is a game of interconnected parts where single-player, co-op and online multiplayer merge seamlessly together. But it’s not a fantasy or sci-fi adventure – instead, the action takes place several days after the release of a deadly new strain of smallpox into the city. Most civilians have died or fled, leaving gangs of looters fighting to control the boroughs. But the government needs to regain control, and to do this, it activates a secret protocol, based on the real-life ...
