Instagram App now lets you save live videos to watch anytime

Instagram announced the update, which has been rolled out worldwide today, in a blog on its website. The blog said: 'While live videos will continue to disappear from the app when you're done, this update gives you the flexibility to hold onto your video and re-watch it later, especially if something exciting happens during your broadcast that you want to remember or share.'

At the end of a live video, a 'Save' button will now appear in the upper right corner. Users will only be able to save the video itself, not the comments, likes, number of viewers or any live interactions. After saving, tap 'Done', and the live video will be saved to your camera roll.

The video will no longer be available on the app. The blog added: 'We are excited by how our community is using live video to connect with their friends and followers in the moment. 'This is just the first of many improvements we'll be making to live stories this year.' The update is available in Instagram version 10.12 for iOS, and for Android in the Google Play store.

HOW TO BROADCAST LIVE

They can then broadcast for up to an hour.

Viewers know when someone is live by the 'live' badge displayed over a person's Story icon at the top of the app.

Instagram's feature is very similar to Periscope and Facebook Live, in that you are able to comment and tap the Heart button to send a sea of floating hearts into view. 

Kuwait lawyer seeks driving ban for expats

A Kuwaiti lawyer filed a lawsuit Monday seeking a temporary driving ban on millions of expatriates to ease traffic congestion in the oil-rich Gulf state. Lawyer Mohammad al-Ansari called for a temporary suspension of their driving licences and a total ban on issuing new licences for expats.
He filed the lawsuit on behalf of a number of Kuwaiti citizens affected by traffic problems, Ansari told AFP in a written statement.

"The traffic problem in the country has reached an unbearable phase," said the lawyer, adding that the government had failed to resolve it. Ansari said the suspension should stay in force until new regulations are introduced to curb traffic jams, although certain professions should be exempted. Around 3.1 million foreigners, most of them Asians, live and work in Kuwait alongside 1.35 million citizens.

For the past decade, authorities have imposed very strict rules on expatriates to obtain a driver's licence. Most foreigners are required to hold a university degree, earn 600 dinars ($2,000) a month and have lived legally in the emirate for at least two years before a license is issued.

Their high number has been criticised by lawmakers and activists, with several MPs calling for it to be lowered to the same level as Kuwaiti citizens within five years.Others have called for taxes to be slapped on their money transfers out of Kuwait.

Beauty and the Beast pulled from cinemas in Kuwait

Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast has been pulled from cinemas in Kuwait after censors raised concerns over the film’s content. The film, which has grossed more than $180 million overseas, has what has been called Disney’s first “gay moment” for a character.

Beauty and the Beast had been showing in the predominantly Muslim country of Kuwait since Thursday, but those who’d purchased tickets to see the movie Monday received text messages from Kuwait’s National Cinema Company informing them that screenings of the movie were cancelled due to “unforeseen difficulties.” Duaij Al-Khalifa Al-Sabah, a board member at the National Cinema Company, which operates 11 of Kuwait’s 13 movie theaters, told The Associated Press a newly edited version of the movie may be back in theaters later this week.

Al-Shaheed Park, Kuwait City / The Habitat Museum 

The opening hours are:
Monday to Friday: 4PM to 9PM
Saturdays: 12PM to 7PM
Sundays: Closed

Entry is free just make sure you carry your  ID card so you could pick up the audio guide and plant disc

ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño (APD) has carried out the design development and museographic implementation of the Remembrance and Habitat Museums, the company’s first project in Kuwait; the museums showcase the history of the country and its natural resources and ecosystems in a permanent exhibition with a total surface area of over 3,400 m2.

APD, based on the design by the US firm Ralph Appelbaum Associates (RAA), has introduced technological innovations to these museums to create interactive and educational environments, dominated by cutting edge audio-visual resources such as large format screens, immersive audio-visual presentations and hyper-realist recreations.

The museums are located within the Al-Shaheed Park, a new natural leisure and cultural centre that is part of the “green belt” connecting old Kuwait City with the new areas of urban development.

A look at history

The Remembrance Museum has a permanent exhibition occupying approximately 900 m2 and showcases the defining moments of Kuwait’s history. It pays tribute to the nation’s heroes and martyrs in an itinerary that covers the key battles that have shaped the country. To this end, ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño has arranged four large-format interactive sculptures using different materials and audio-visual elements, symbolising the four most famous battles of the history of Kuwait.

In the first one, a group of sailing ships represent the battle of Al-Riqqa. In the second, drops of water symbolise the important role played by rain in the battle of Al-Sireef. The third sculpture, the Red Fort, recreates the battle of Al-Jahra using a model of the castle as a pepper ghost. In the fourth and final element, flags of Kuwait’s allies represent the Invasion and Liberation of Kuwait. Visitors can listen to the stories of survivors, veterans, civilians and officers and contribute with their own experiences for future generations by recording their testimony at the “Story Booth” interactive kiosks.

One prominent cutting edge resource in the museum is the “Our Land Map”, a round interactive table with a 4-metre-diametre LED screen where visitors can interact with a map of the region using sensors with dates that are placed throughout its entire surface to reveal key battle locations. Another striking element is the “Our Identity Wall” audio-visual presentation, a wall of twenty four 32” screens showing archive footage and animated images that reflect the values of the people of Kuwait throughout history.

A look at nature

The Habitat Museum seeks to instil in visitors a respect for nature by presenting the wealth and diversity of Kuwaiti habitats through a large number of interactive programmes and scenographic recreations.

Upon entry, visitors receive a Seed Ticket (a ticket with an embedded seed from one of Kuwait’s most characteristic plants) with a chip that provides information on 18 different types of seeds and interacts with all of the multimedia elements in the museum, adapting and customising the visit to each individual.

Among the different resources employed there are some striking scenographic installations showing hyper-realist recreations of Kuwait’s fauna and flora complemented with interactive elements such as the “Migration Corridor”, where visitors use ‘view-scopes’ to contemplate birdlife in its natural habitat; “Landform Tables”, four interactive tables with a total surface of 48 square metres; or the “Terraria Table”, perspex bubbles that recreate small ecosystems of Kuwait’s most important plants.

Other audio-visual resources are the “Prologue” installation, a series of 14 towers with 74 vertical screens in cascade-mode simulating an audio-visual forest with synchronised scenes of Kuwait’s habitats; or the Forces Theatre, a 26-metre-long surrounding audio-visual projection with spectacular panoramic views filmed on location in the country’s natural environments.

How to tell if an egg is rotten in SECONDS:

Clever hack helps you determine if it has gone off without cracking it open 

If food has gone off, you can usually tell by any bad smells emanating or furry mould starting to grow.  But with eggs, it's much harder to tell if one is rotten because the shell stops any bad odours escaping. There is a very handy trick, however, that can show you if one has gone off without the need for cracking it open first. 

All you need for the very easy - and cost-free - hack is a bowl of cold water. Simply pop any eggs that you suspect may be rotten in the bowl and watch them closely.

Those that are a week old will tilt at an angle, pointed end downwards, as if the bottom of the egg is trying to float away. Two-week-old eggs will float with the pointed end at the bottom, but this time the egg will have settled in an upright position. Finally, rotten eggs will simply float to the top - and then you know not to use them in your cake or breakfast.

Eggs are a quick and versatile ingredient, and often people crack them into a dish without a moment's hesitation. But by using this trick, it could save home cooks from kitchen catastrophes as a rotten egg cracked into a dish could ruin a meal. 

PHILIPPINE DIPLOMAT SENT TO SAUDI ARABIA TO LEAD SEARCH FOR MISSING WOMAN

875221 1827298624

A special representative was sent to Saudi Arabia by Philippine authorities to lead the search for a Filipino woman who has been reported missing for more than a year.
Department of Foreign Affairs identified the missing worker as Diosalyn Fabian Seva, 36-year-old, a mother of two young children.

She arrived in the Kingdom as a maid in October 2015 and was supposed to work for a family in Jazan but was later sent to another family in Jeddah.
Information gathered by DFA investigators in Manila showed that Seva last sent money to her family in February 2016 and was not heard from since.

Mohammed Noordin Pendosina Lomondot, a special assistant at the Office of Migrant Workers’ Affairs said he had contacted the owner of the Saudi partner agency of the Philippine recruiter and was told that Seva ran away from her sponsors.

'Meteor' causes panic in Pakistan's mountainous north

Meteor causes panic in Pakistans mountainous north

 A suspected meteor lit up the skies above Pakistan's mountainous north late Wednesday, officials said, with panicked residents reporting a mysterious light whizzing past and the sound of multiple, powerful blasts. The incident occurred around 9:00 pm, when citizens in the city of Gilgit and the surrounding Ghizer and Diamer districts saw the bright object racing through the night sky above the region's remote, soaring mountains.

"I saw a light flash through the sky and then there were multiple blasts," Ghizer district resident Javed Iqbal told AFP Thursday. "I felt as if something had hit the roof of my house. I rushed outside with my family members and saw everyone getting out of their homes. The blasts had shaken the whole valley," he said. His story was echoed by others, including Shabir Mir of Gilgit, who said he saw the object "disappear into the mountains", followed seconds later by what sounded like more than one explosion.

"I thought the object might have hit the mountain," Mir told AFP. Social media was also flooded with reports of the incident, with some users posting unverified images they said were of the strange light. Sibtain Ahmed, a senior administration official in Gilgit, on Thursday confirmed the object had been seen in all three areas, followed by the sound of loud explosions.

l 192692 044019 updates 1

"According to our investigation, the flying object was a meteor flying low," he told AFP. The apparent blasts were the sonic boom created as the meteor ripped through the sky faster than the speed of sound, he said. "It did not hit the ground," Ahmed said, claiming it had crossed Pakistan's territory headed towards Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor, which borders the Gilgit-Baltistan region to the north.

Meteors are pieces of comet or asteroid from outer space that create a fireball as they hit the Earth's atmosphere. Those that survive the intense heat and friction and reach the surface without breaking up are known as meteorites, and are sought after by scientists for the information they can give about the early solar system. It was not clear if the meteor crashed or broke up in the sky. The terrain between the city of Gilgit and the Wakhan Corridor is extremely remote and home to some of the highest mountains in the world.

There were no immediate reports of any meteor in Afghanistan. Pakistan's powerful military released no official statement on the incident, and authorities from Pakistan's space agency, the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO), could not immediately comment.

These are the top 10 most powerful passports of 2017

When it comes to travel mobility, it's good to be German.

Because for the fourth year running, the German passport topped an index ranking the most powerful passports in the world, for boasting visa-free access to 176 countries -- the most of any nationality. In the 12th annual edition of the Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index, which is produced in partnership with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the results of the top 10 list remain largely the same with the exception of the UK, which slipped from third to fourth place in 2017.

By comparison, for three years between 2013 and 2015, the UK shared first place with Germany. And with the fallout from Brexit still playing out, analysts predict the changing geopolitical climate to affect the ranking over the next 12 months. "We have witnessed several major events recently that are likely to have an impact on global mobility -- including Brexit and the election of US President Donald Trump," said Henley & Partners chairman Christian Kalin in a statement.

"Both can be interpreted as steps toward restricting movement and creating barriers to entry. This trend towards curbing travel freedom is already apparent in the shift in rankings on this year's Visa Restrictions Index." Rounding out the top three spots is Sweden in second place, and Denmark, Finland, Italy, Spain and the US, tied for third.

The biggest mover in this year's index is Peru, which gained 15 spots. Island nations like the Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands, Micronesia, Kiribati and Tuvalu also gained nine spots, while Ghana posted the biggest loss, dropping four spots. Not surprisingly, Syria, Pakistan, Iraq and Afghanistan sit at the bottom of the list, with visa-free access to less than 30 countries.   As for the BRICS nations, while Brazil and China moved up a few spots, Russia, India and South Africa lost ground.

One of the lessons consumers can glean from this index?

"For individuals who hold passports of countries with fewer visa waiver agreements, a second or even third citizenship can open up travel opportunities to countries previously restricted by time-consuming visa application requirements and processes," Kalin said.

Here are the world's  top 10 most powerful passports for 2017:

1. Germany
2. Sweden
3. Denmark, Finland, Italy, Spain, US
4. Austria, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, UK
5. Ireland, Japan, New Zealand
6. Canada, Greece, Portugal, Switzerland
7. Australia, South Korea
8. Iceland
9. Czech Republic
10. Hungary, Malta
