People of Gilgit fear Iraq and Syria type scenario may emerge

Gilgit Baltistan, January 27, 2015: After the gruesome attack on the Army School in Peshwar, the world thought that Pakistan would take stern action against all forms of terrorism. Ironically Pakistan has maintained a status quo and is still adopting a selective approach when it comes to dealing with terrorism. The biggest victims of Pakistan double standards, the People of Gilgit Baltistan have already drawn conclusion that the situation in Pakistan will very soon be like Iraq and Syria. Pakistan today is referred as a safe haven for terrorists, after all the notorious terrorist Osama bin Laden was found in Abbotabad, Pakistan, and hundreds of terrorist training camps are dotted across Pakistan. The militant training camps continue to exist, reports say that Tehreek e Taliban and Afghanistan had forged an alliance and both resolved to strengthen the ISIS footprint in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir, the core agenda of the group is to target the Shia community, people here in Gilgit Baltistan feel that if the situation continues be like this then it will be Syria and Iraq like the scenario here.

Why oatmeal breakfast is best for dieters

New Delhi, 27 Jan (ANI): Having oatmeal for breakfast can make you feel fuller, with lower hunger ratings and fewer calories at lunch. The study showed statistically significant higher ratings of fullness, lower ratings of hunger, and fewer calories consumed at lunch after consuming oatmeal compared to sugared corn flakes or water.The study authors suggested that the greater satiety effect of oatmeal cereal compared to sugared corn flakes or water might be due to a slower gastric emptying (oatmeal took longer to leave the stomach). Given that the results were more pronounced in overweight subjects, researchers suggested that a longer-term weight control study testing daily oatmeal for breakfast is warranted. Jan 27, 2015
