Palestinians ban divorces
jamuna news: The head of Palestinian Islamic courts on Sunday told judges not to grant divorces over Ramadan, fearing the month-long fast could spark rash words that would be regretted later.
Judge Mahmud Habash said he based his ruling on "the experience of previous years" when he found that the dawn-to-dusk fast and ban on cigarettes, which began on Saturday, tended to lead to frayed tempers and sharp tongues.
"Some, because they have not eaten and not smoked, create problems" in their marriages, he said in a statement, and they can make "quick and ill-considered decisions".
According to the Palestinian Authority, 50,000 weddings were celebrated in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip in 2015, but more than 8,000 divorces were also registered.
Endemic unemployment and poverty are said to be major contributing factors.
There is no civil marriage or divorce in the Palestinian territories, where only religious courts have those powers.
AL sinking into quicksand: BNP
jamuna news: BNP senior leader Nazrul Islam Khan today said that the fall of the current government is a must as it is sinking into quicksand getting isolated from people.
He said, The government is filing false cases against BNP leaders and activists, and arresting them in those cases. It’s (govt) sinking into quicksand. The more it’ll move, the faster it’ll sink.
The BNP leader came up with the remarks while speaking at a human-chain programme arranged by Dhaka south city unit BNP in front of the Jatiya Press Club, demanding the release of its leaders arrested by police recently.
Nazrul, a BNP standing committee member, warned the government that it will neither be able to suppress BNP nor escape from its fall.
Criticising the government for what he said its repressive acts, the BNP leader said it is regrettable that a party like Awami League wants to hang onto power with repressive acts forgetting its history.
“All Awami League leaders, except Amena Begum, were arrested in 1969 by the then Pakistan government. But, it couldn’t resist Awami League, and finally suffered a defeat. Awami League also won’t be able to cling to power by implicating BNP leaders and activists in false cases,” he observed.
Mentioning that there is no alternative to waging a movement to oust the current regime, Nazrul asked his party colleagues to get ready for the agitation. “Wait for the call of our leader (Khaleda Zia) for the movement. We must take to the streets spontaneously whenever she asks us to do so.”
He demanded the government immediately release all BNP leaders and activists, including its vice chairman Barkatullah Bulu and joint secretary general Khairul Kabir Khokon.

NASA tech to help drones land
jamuna news desk: NASA scientists have developed a new software that will help drones automatically spot the best places to crash-land in the case of an emergency, without hurting anyone on the ground.
Increasing numbers of drones in the sky
raisesthe risk to people and property below being hit when these unmanned aerial vehicles develop mechanical problems. Now, Patricia Glaab, an aerospace technologist at NASA Langley Research Centre in the US, and colleagues have developed a crash-landing software for drones.
During eight test flights, the technology successfully spotted safer landing sites such as swamps or drainage ditches to crash instead of cars or people on the ground, Glaab said.
The software links
on-boarddrone components like batteries and motors to monitor their health, 'Fortune.com' reported.
The technology identifies when something on the drone goes wrong, and puts the aerial vehicles in a crash-landing mode.
When triggered, the software checks a pre-installed database of nearby safe zones that it can then pilot itself towards. The software also incorporates technology that lets drones
recogniseand avoid objects on the ground using on-boardcameras, Glaab said.
Businesses increasingly use drones for things like inspecting rooftops or power lines, raising the risk of in-flight mechanical and software problems that could put people below in danger.
