Ranveer & Deepika still a couple

7 11 2013

They say when you are in love you want to scream at the top of your lungs, tell the whole world and shout it from the highest mountain. But it’s completely a different story altogether in Bollywood.
Recently the rumored lovers Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh came on the set of༢>Star Plus⊓tar Verdict to talk about their upcoming flick Raam Leela, where they also spoke about their alleged love story.
When host of the show༢>Anupama Chopra asked Ranveer about him being in loveria as per an interview, the actor said, 㼩>Maine who interview Madhoshi mein diya tha! Actually, I was on medicatios then as I was still recovering from dengue. You know whatever I normally say is in jest, so whoever asks me about my relationship status I give such answers.伯i>
The couple has been spoken about a lot in the recent times and the chemistry has been undeniable but when asked about their love report, they both unanimously said, 㼩>This is all hog wash䮼/span>
Well, their such statements clearly gives us a picture that link ups, break-ups, heartache are all well scripted in Hindi films as well as in the real lives of the stars.
To watch more tune-in to Star Verdict Saturday 9th November at 7:30 pm. on Star Plus

Some tips to consider before accepting a job offer
You have made it through the job search and interview, now you are being offered a job; here are some things to consider before you accept the role. Your initial reaction might be to accept the job offer straight away in the excitement of the moment. However, take some time to consider the offer and understand what it entails.
  • Get the job offer in writing. This will outline the obligations of the role, the salary on offer, your benefits and entitlements to annual leave. Ensure that all items comply with your expectations. Do ask questions about items you are unsure of or were not aware of from the initial job description.
  • Make sure you understand the role you will be playing in the company. Ensure that you understand how you fit into the company.
  • Find out why the job is vacant, is it a new position, did someone leave and if so, why did they leave. Make sure that the job is not flawed.
  • Consider the company and its people. You do not always know what kind of people you will be working with; think of the person/people you were interviewed by. Did you feel comfortable with them? Do they have the level of professionalism and type of personality that you would be comfortable working with?

Dear Naresh:
There’s new momentum to close Gitmo and we need your help to seize this crucial moment.
The Senate will soon vote on the annual defense bill, and it includes provisions to prosecute or transfer the remaining 164 detainees. Combined with President Obama’s renewed engagement on this issue, this could finally be the beginning of the end of Gitmo.
Detainee abuse, imprisonment without charge, unjust military commissions: Gitmo is a frontal assault on American ideals. We’ve been fighting to close it since the beginning. We’ve never stopped, even when the issue was out of the headlines, and we won’t stop until we succeed.
In this effort, we’ve teamed up with a coalition of retired generals and admirals, who know firsthand that respect for human rights is a national security asset. They were standing with President Obama in 2009 when he promised to shut Gitmo down, and they’re working to hold him to it. At the same time, they’re calling on Congress to help him make Gitmo history.
Finally, after 12 years, there’s a chance to close Gitmo. Please join us in this effort. Let’s make sure that Congress doesn’t let this opportunity slip away.
Urge your Senators to close Guantanamo now by voting for the Senate defense bill.
