suppose for the fans here as well" Isner said "My opponent came through qualifying so has won five matches already and is playing really well I just need to play my game and see what happens" Del Potro went into the match knowing that victory would secure him a place at the Tour Finals for the first time since 2013 but struggled to find his best form as a run of 25 matches since the start of the US Open in August caught up with him Both players were strong on serve for the majority of the opening set but Del Potro faltered at the key moment and Isner claimed a one-set advantage by putting

constituent of the NDA government also suggested giving compensation to kin of those who lost lives allegedly in the aftermath of demonetisation "(When demonetisation was announced) I had neither opposed nor welcomed the move I had only maintained that the common people should not be inconvenienced 30 (of the 50) days have gone but there is no sign that the problems have decreased Rather problems are on the rise day-by-day" Thackeray told reporters Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray PTI Asked his party’s move after remaining 20 of the 50 days Prime Minister had initially asked for

".the case should not meet the fate of Shah Bano case" he said In The Shah Bano decision the Supreme Court had overruled a Muslim personal law and granted a Muslim woman alimony In response a legislation was proposed by Centre in 1986 to prevent such a court decision in the future Referring to claims that terror attacks have stopped post-demonetisation Thackeray said it meant the Prime Minister has shown a path to the world on combating terrorism However other countries are not following that path he quipped "I was happy to know that terror attacks have stopped post-demonetisation If the attacks on the country have stopped then (it meant) Modi has shown a path to the world Why cannot other countries resort to demonetisation (then) How simple way Modiji had shown But other countries are not taking that path" he said sarcastically On whether the Shiv Sena will join hands with BJP with which it is sharing uneasy relationship after they parted ways ahead of 2014

pioneering work in the late 1940 (Source : Epic Fireworks/Flickr) Top News Researchers in New Zealand have restored the “true sound” in the earliest known recording of computer-generated music that British mathematician Alan Turing’s pioneering work in the late 1940s helped create Jack Copeland Professor in Arts at the University of Canterbury along with Jason Long a New Zealand-based composer and performer said their work made it possible to restore the recording with the result that the true sound of the ancestral computer can be heard once again for the first time in more than half a century In 1951 a BBC outside broadcast unit in Manchester used a portable acetate disc cutter to capture three melodies played by a primeval computer This gigantic computer filled much of the ground floor of Alan Turing’s Computing Machine Laboratory In addition today all that remains of the recording session is a 12-inch single-sided acetate disc cut by the BBC’s technician while the computer played The computer itself was scrapped long ago so the archived recording was the only window on that historic soundscape that the researchers had The researchers discovered that the pitches were not accurate — the recording gave at best only a rough impression of how the computer sounded Copeland and Long said in a blog post on the British Library website But with some electronic detective work it proved possible to restore the recording they added “Alan Turing’s pioneering work in the late 1940s on transforming the computer into a musical instrument has largely been overlooked: it’s an urban myth of the music world that the first computer-generated musical notes were heard in 1957 at Bell Labs in America” Copeland and Long wrote Computer-generated notes were emerging from a loudspeaker in Turing’s computing lab as early as the autumn of 1948 they noted Alan Turing who broke the WWII Enigma code is widely acknowledged as the father of modern computer science As depicted in the 2014 Oscar-winning film “The Imitation Game” Turing was prosecuted in 1952 for homosexual acts when such behaviour was still a criminal act in Britain He underwent chemical castration as an

Sikh congregation Sarbat Khalsa’ has exposed the party’s plan to push the state back to turbulent times On the sidelines of Sangat Darshan programme in Khadoor Sahib assembly constituency here he said the Congress was "hobnobbing with the separatist forces" to disturb the hard earned peace communal harmony and brotherhood in the state He said the worst thing was that despite being aware of the development the state Congress leadership refused to take any action against its leaders including former Khadoor Sahib MLA Ramanjeet Singh Sikki who had attended the 10 November ‘Sarbat Khalsa’ in Amritsar from where talks of destabilising peace and progress of the state were made "This has vindicated our stand that the Congress was wary of a peaceful and prosperous Punjab just for its vested political interests" added Badal He said Punjab has scripted a new success story of development peace and communal harmony during the regime of SAD-BJP alliance He said that former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh does not have a single contribution to his credit for development of the state Badal said that during the tenure of the SAD-BJP alliance the state had initiated a large number of development projects which were several times more than that of the Congress dispensation He said that state government has made stupendous efforts to curb the drug menace in Punjab Not even a single ounce of drug was produced in the state but it was smuggled into the state from across the borders Efforts are being made by the state to cut the supply line of drugs by taking stringent action against those found guilty in this heinous crime the chief minister said PTI Pragya doesn’t tell anything about kidnapping as she doesn’t want to spoil the moment.
