As you know it is important to know all pros and cons of cryptocurrencies before entering into the crypto market. But along with the strong enter strategy one should know when and how to exit the crypto market. You must have heard business giants saying that they “exit plan” but they share the one. So, here are the top 5 crypto exit strategies that will be useful for you in 2022 and beyond.


Exit and sell at price targets

For example: assuming that you own one whole Bitcoin, instead of exiting out of your entire position when it hits 100K, you can divide that up into five different sections or as many sections as you want to divide it into. So, you can grab one whole Bitcoin and divide it up into 5 different sections and sell them at different prices. That way you can make better profits.


Dollar-cost average out

It is one of the best strategies while purchasing any cryptocurrency and also an ideal option while exiting the market. You can set a selling plan of a day, week, or month and then a percentage you want to sell, for example, 10 percent a week, and you will be out of the market within 10 weeks (again with profit in hand).


Exit by return (%)

Consider you got into Cardona when it was at one dollar, well the moment you bought it, you should have a general idea of when you plan on selling it. So, for example, you planned to exit when Cardona hit two dollars and sell half of your position and play with house money or any other plan. It is important to write those strategies down and stick with them in order to get better returns.


Exit by cycle

It is one of the popular strategies people are following but, there is no guarantee that the four year cycle is valid. Many investors look at the performance cycle of the cryptocurrency and then start selling and take profits while exiting the crypto market.


Exit by portfolio

Exit by portfolio or exiting out based on your financial goals. This strategy depends on one’s individual goal. For example, you have invested US$10,000 in the crypto market, and you need 30K for buying something or paying your bills. It is ideal to exit the market when the currency hits 30K even though the prices keeps-on increasing. This strategy is not for all but an ideal one for many.

After UAE flight ban, Pakistan is next big opportunity for private jet operators


Private jet operators will be hoping to make the same impact to and from destinations in Pakistan with the latest restrictions being placed on commercial flights from the country.

Pakistan is pretty much mirroring what's going on in India and that’s very much based on the fact that you have got a lot of wealth from there being based here (in the UAE), said Holger Ostheimer, Managing Director, DC Aviation Al-Futtaim, a project jet services company.

The UAE has cut commercial flights from the country, alongside Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, while maintaining the curtailment of services from India. Earlier, Pakistan had imposed restrictions on inbound flights.

Charter flight rates are expressed in block hours per flight. The general rule of thumb is about $6,000 per hour. The costs vary based on factors such as flight hours and type of aircraft among others. DC Aviation, which follows a fixed pricing regime, said its prices have remained the same since last year.

Throwback:;When former Pakistan skipper Imran Khan almost got married to Bollywood actress Rekha

 Former Pakistan skipper and presently the Prime Minister of the country Imran Khan who is regarded as one of the greatest all rounders to have played cricket was the ladies man in his era. Not only did he have the ability to win games with his brilliance but he also won hearts with utmost ease  such was his charm. The 1992 World Cup winning captain has been known to have many beautiful women around him during his playing days.

Back then Pakistan and India played bilateral ties regularly which meant the players of the two nations were close to each other.It also gave an opportunity to cricketers of both countries to make friends across the border. Imran seemed to be a big beneficiary of this as he was often linked up with glamourous Bollywood actresses. It was no surprise that he clean bowled the ladies with his oratory skills and looks.

A report on the Star which was published back then has surfaced on the social space again and it is grabbing all the attention. The report claims the former Pakistani captain almost got married to yesteryears Bollywood diva Rekha. It is believed that Rekha’s mother was quite happy with the development in her daughter’s life. The same report also claimed that Imran spent quality time with the actress in Mumbai for a month and was spotted often near the beaches.

People who saw the couple reported that they seemed quite close and that they loved each other deeply and passionately.

He once said The company of actresses is good for a short period. I enjoy their company for some time and then move ahead. I cannot even think of marrying a movie actress.

According to reports Imran also had flings with Bollywood actresses Shabana Azmi and Zeenat Aman among others.

Imran retired from cricket in 1992 but remained an iconic figure in his country which helped him enter politics. He got elected as the Prime Minister of Pakistan in 2018.

Haval H6 SUV Comes to Pakistan

 Pakistan’s crossover SUV segment has had a substantial growth over the last few years. It had been almost non existent until early 2018, with the exception of a few imported vehicles, but is now more populous than any other automotive segment.

Sazgar Engineering Works Limited [SEWL] also aims to have its presence felt in the segment through the launch of two new SUVs in Pakistan, the Haval Jolion and the H6. The H6 test unit has arrived in Pakistan after the introduction of the Jolion test unit.

Much like the Jolion, the Haval H6 is a compact crossover SUV that will compete in the highly competitive local crossover market. The test unit is a 3rd generation H6 SUV that debuted in China in mid-2020.

The H6 can be had with several powertrain options, but it is believed that the one for Pakistan will have a 1.5 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder engine that makes 169 hp and 285 Nm of torque and is paired to a 7 speed DCT automotive gearbox. The international market also has a hybrid variant that is accompanied by a single electric motor and a 45 kWh lithium ion battery pack.

As the latest generation vehicle, the H6 is loaded with features like LED headlights and tail lights, daytime running lights (DRLs), multiple drive modes, Radar Cruise Control, Traction Control, a smart infotainment touchscreen, an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), a fully Digital Head Unit Display (HUD), and various driver-assist features.

It will be interesting to see how Haval positions this new SUV in Pakistan alongside the Jolion that falls under the same category. Perhaps it is planning to launch just one of the two SUVs in the market after thoroughly testing both.

The price of the H6 in the international market starts at just over $17,000 (Rs. 2.66 million) and goes up to $20,000 (Rs. 3.06 million). This seems too good to be true for the Pakistani market.

However, in the range of Rs. 3 million to 4 million, the H6 could be a credible contender in the growing SUV market of Pakistan.

A hidden continent birthed a new subduction zone near New Zealand


South of New Zealand in the Tasman Sea is a stretch of stormy ocean where the waves regularly swell 20 feet (6 meters) or more and the winds blow at 30 mph (48 km/h) on a good day. Deep below these stormy seas, Earth is unquiet, too. This region is home to the Puysegur Trench, site of one of the youngest subduction zones on the planet. Here, the Australian plate is shoved under the Pacific plate, creating frequent large earthquakes, including a 7.2 magnitude quake in 2004. 

Now, new research reveals how this baby subduction zone came to be. Over millions of years, a bit of the 'hidden' continent of Zealandia on the boundary between the Australian and Pacific plates, got stretched and shifted in a way that led the denser oceanic crust to slam into  and under  it. This finding that positioning different types of crust against one another at a preexisting plate boundary leads to subduction may help to explain how other new subduction zones around the world form.

Subduction zones are one of the most important, if not the most important, plate boundaries, said study lead author Brandon Shuck, a doctoral candidate at The University of Texas at Austin. They're really the main drivers of plate tectonics, so they're the primary reason why the plates on Earth actually move. And also they're very destructive plate boundaries We don't really understand well how they start out and how they form in the first place.

Subduction zone formation is mysterious because subduction zones are, by nature, destructive. When a plate of oceanic crust dives under continental crust, the rocks at the surface twist, break and deform. The oceanic slab, meanwhile, churns into the mantle, where it's melted beyond recognition. This leaves little geological history behind to study. 

The subduction zone in the Puysegur margin is young enough that this history has not yet been erased. That makes it an ideal spot to answer the question of how subduction zones form in the first place, Shuck told Live Science. There's not yet any good explanation of how tectonic plates break open and start subducting

Studying the Puysegur margin is no easy feat, though, because it's in the Roaring Forties, the latitudes between 40 degrees south and 50 degrees south where the winds and currents are brutal. Scientists aboard the research vessel Marcus Langseth set out to this region in 2018 as part of the South Island Subduction Initiation Experiment. It was a challenging trip, Shuck said. The crew had to spend almost a quarter of the time sheltering behind islands to avoid gales. 

Our boat was rolling side to side by like 20 degrees at one point, Shuck said. It was a mess.

In spite of the weather, the researchers were able to deploy seafloor seismometers and to take seismic surveys of the subsurface, a method which uses reflected sound waves to see underground structures

The new data allowed the researchers to put together a history of the young subduction zone, which Shuck presented at the virtual meeting of the Seismological Society of America on April 22, the same day the study was published in the journal Tectonics. It all started about 45 million years ago, when a new plate boundary between the Australian and Pacific plates began to form because of a force called extension  basically, tectonic forces pulled the two plates apart like putty. 

The oceanic crust at the plate boundary responded to this extension predictably: As the crust thin, magma from the mantle pushed up through fractures, hardening into new rock. This process is called seafloor spreading, and it's how new oceanic crust forms.

But there was a catch: The secret continent of Zealandia.  Zealandia is a submerged section of continental crust the size of Australia around New Zealand. Zealandia was perched over the north end of this extensional zone. As continental crust is thicker and more buoyant, the extensional forces working at the plate boundary couldn't crack Zealandia. Instead, the continental crust merely stretched as it spread, creating a thinned out zone now known as the Solander basin. 

Now there were two plates. The Australian Plate, to the west, consisted of continental crust from Zealandia in the north and new oceanic crust in the south. The Pacific Plate, to the east, also consisted of oceanic crust in the south. To the north, the Pacific Plate hosted the thinned out continental crust of the Solander basin. At the plate boundary, oceanic crust bumped up against oceanic crust, and continental crust against continental crust.

Likely little of interest would have happened, if not for another tectonic shift 25 million years ago. 

At that time, the Australian Pacific plate boundary stopped pulling apart. Instead, the plates started to move past each other, creating what's known as a strike-slip fault. Now, the Pacific plate was moving south, and the Australian plate was moving north. This opposing movement brought the oceanic crust of the Australian plate right next door to the thin Solander basin continental crust on the Pacific plate.

This was the key to starting subduction, Shuck said: Continental crust is more buoyant than denser oceanic crust, and this difference in buoyancy allowed the denser part of the Australian plate to slide under the lighter Pacific one, especially because the boundary between these continental and oceanic plates was already weakened by the earlier strike slip faulting. The findings drive home how important strike-slip movement is to tectonics, Shuck said. 

How plates rotate is really important, he said. If you just think about pulling things apart and pushing them together you don't really create that much contrast, but with strike slip, you're translating (sliding a portion of crust) and it's super efficient. Just imagine, with the plates sliding past each other, you're going to cause materials of different properties to come together eventually.

There are other spots around the globe where strike slip movement is happening in the same place as the compression and convergence of plates, particularly along the Queen Charlotte fault north of Vancouver and south of Alaska, Shuck said. That fault may be a place where a subduction zone could potentially form, he said. 

But there are also many questions left to answer about the fault south of New Zealand. Speaking at the Seismological Society of America meeting on April 22, geophysicist Caroline Eakin of Australian National University described a research trip to Macquarie Ridge, an undersea ridge 620 miles (1,000 km) south of New Zealand on the same fault as the Puysegur margin. In October 2020, scientists deployed seafloor seismic instruments at this rugged ridge, which is only 28 miles (25 km) wide but rises 3.7 miles (6 km) from the surrounding topography. 

The researchers will return to pick up the instruments and their data in November 2021, as long as the weather allows. If the Puysegur margin is in the Roaring Forties, Macquarie Ridge is in the "Furious 50s." The research ship encountered 68 mph (109 km/h) winds while trying to deploy the instruments and spent 38% of the mission in such bad weather that scientists aboard couldn't do anything but shelter in place and wait. Nevertheless, they are hopeful that the new ocean-bottom seismometers (OBS) will open their eyes to what's going on beneath the ridge. Right now, the researchers know there are large quakes originating in the region, but they don't know much about how deep in the crust they are, what kind of faults they occur on or what kind of tsunami risks they pose to coastal areas in Australia. 

The OBS data will also allow us to image the subsurface beneath the plate boundary for the first time using different seismic imaging techniques," Eakin told Live Science. "Currently, most of our observations tell us about what is happening at the surface or near surface, but we have no idea what is happening beneath the surface of the plate boundary in the Macquarie Ridge region.

One question they hope to answer: Will the fault at Macquarie Ridge begin to turn into a subduction zone, too? The Puysegur margin and Macquarie Ridge are related and are experiencing similar changes in plate motion over time, Eakin said, though Puysegur is further along in the process. Macquarie Ridge, being two slabs of oceanic crust coming together, might be more resistant to subduction than the continental crust and oceanic crust boundary at Puysegur, Shuck said; but subduction zones can also spread along a fault from a single point. 

Those two segments could actually link up  maybe  in the future.

لانگ مارچ فائیو بی: چین کا 21 ٹن وزنی بے قابو خلائی راکٹ زمین پر کب اور کس جگہ گرنے کا امکان ہے

 چین کا ایک بے قابو راکٹ جو زمین کے مدار میں گھوم رہا تھا اب آئندہ آنے والے دنوں میں زمین کی فضا میں داخل ہونے والا ہے اور سائنسدانوں کو یہ معلوم نہیں ہے کہ یہ کہاں گرے گا۔

خیال رہے کہ سنہ 1990 کے بعد سے 10 ٹن سے زیادہ وزنی کسی بھی مشین یا راکٹ کو زمین کے مدار میں دانستہ طور پر نہیں چھوڑا گیا تاکہ وہ بے قابو ہو کر زمین پر گرے۔ مگر اب اگلے چند دنوں میں 21 ٹن وزنی لانگ مارچ فائیو بی نامی راکٹ زمین پر گرنے والے سب سے بڑے راکٹس میں سے ایک ہو گا۔

اس راکٹ کی لمبائی 98 فٹ، جبکہ چوڑائی 16 فٹ ہے اور اس کے ذریعے اپریل کے آخر میں چین کے نئے خلائی سٹیشن کو مدار میں لے کر جانے کی تیاریاں کی گئی تھیں۔ اس وقت یہ مدار سے 27 ہزار 60 کلومیٹر فی گھنٹہ کی رفتار سے زمین کی جانب بڑھ رہا ہے۔

بی بی سی کے نامہ نگار برائے سائنس جوناتھن ایموس کا کہنا ہے کہ یہ ایک ایسے زون کی جانب بڑھ رہا ہے جو خط استوا سے 41 ڈگری شمال اور جنوب کے درمیان ہے۔ شمال میں یہ علاقہ نیویارک، استنبول اور بیجنگ تک جاتا ہے اور جنوب میں ویلنگٹن اور چلی تک-

انھوں نے کہا کہ اگر آپ اس زون یا علاقے سے مزید شمال یا جنوب میں رہتے ہیں تو یہ آپ پر نہیں گر سکتا اور اگر آپ اس زون میں بھی رہتے ہیں اور یہ خط استوا سے قریب ہے، تب بھی اس کا آپ پر گرنے کا امکان بہت کم ہے۔ 70 فیصد زمین پانی سے ڈھکی ہوئی ہے، اس لیے اگر یہ زمین کے ماحول میں آتشیں داخلے کے بعد کچھ بچ جاتا ہے تو زیادہ امکان یہی ہے کہ یہ پانی میں گر جائے گا-

Pakistan imposes Eid lockdown as COVID cases soar

 Pakistan on Saturday began a nine-day shutdown affecting travel and tourist hotspot in a bid to prevent a surge in COVID 19 cases during the Muslim holiday of Eid ul Fitr.

Already battling a third wave of infections and increasingly nervous about the crisis across the border in india, the government has imposed the most severe restrictions since a one-month lock down in April last year.

From today all businesses across the country will be closed. People will not be allowed to go into the markets to do their shopping for Eid Al Jazeera’s Kamal Hyder reported from the capital, Islamabad

The Pakistani government feared that it will not be able to cope due to a possible lack of ventilators and oxygen if the situation sees the likes of which India is confronting.

Asad Umar, the planning minister who is responsible for leading Pakistan’s pandemic response, said Pakistan was facing a dangerous situation.

These measures have been necessitated by the extremely dangerous situation which has been created in the region with the spread of virulent mutations of the virus Umar said on Twitter adding the country needed to unite.

Eid which comes at the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, usually sees the mass movement of people around the country and tourist spots crowded with Pakistanis.

Last year the country saw a spike in cases in the weeks after the celebrations.

Businesses hotels and restaurants as well as markets and parks will be closed, while public transport between provinces and within cities has been halted.

The military has been mobilised to monitor the restrictions

Mosques, however will remain open. Authorities fear curbs on places of worship could ignite confrontation in the deeply conservative Muslim republic.

Impoverished Pakistan has recorded more than 850,000 infections and 18,600 deaths, but with limited testing and a deprived healthcare sector many fear the true extent of the disease is much worse.

Pakistan has seen a daily death toll of more than 100 in recent weeks.

Health officials have warned that hospitals are operating at close to capacity and they have rushed to increase the number of intensive care beds

International flights have been slashed and border crossings with Iran and Afghanistan closed, except for trade.

Flights and land crossings with neighbouring India reeling from a devastating outbreak with hundreds of thousands of new cases a day were closed before the pandemic because of political tensions.

Since last year, Pakistan has reported nearly 18,800 deaths from COVID 19 and more than 854,000 confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins University

Pakistan, which has so far vaccinated only a fraction of its population, received its first batch of 1.2 million Astra Zeneca doses on Saturday under the delayed COVAX global vaccine sharing scheme for lower-income countries.

Changes you can make to your diet and lifestyle to ease those painful migraines

 Around 190,000 people suffer a migraine attack each day in England alone, and it is estimated that six million people in the UK experience migraines at some time in their lives.

As many as a quarter of women and up to 10 per cent of men report suffering attacks and the effects can have a huge impact

But many experts believe changes to diet and lifestyle can create a significant improvement in symptoms so what should you try

It is believed that migraines are caused by chemical changes in the nerve cells of the brain says Jane Clarke dietician and founder of Nourish Drinks.

For some of us certain chemicals or compounds in our food can be the culprit. You may be sensitive to MSG the flavour enhancer found in many processed foods

Or keeping a food and migraine diary may reveal that tyramine, an amino acid found in mature cheese, peanuts, chocolate broad beans and fermented foods such as sauerkraut could be your migraine weak spot.

Sitting at a screen all day in a forward hunching position the dreaded tech-neck posture will cause aches and pains in your back, neck and shoulders which can lead to headaches and even migraines.

Punjab allows inter district public transport to operate till May 10


The Punjab government has allowed interdistrict public transport to operate till May 10 it emerged Saturday

Publuc transport will remain suspended in the province from 6pm on May 10 to 6pm on May 15.

The Punjab government earlier decided to impose a lockdown across the province for two weeks starting May 8.

Tourist spots in the province will remain closed and checkpoints will be established in every city to restrict the movement of people

The measures are aimed at stemming the spread of coronavirus.

The virus has so far claimed 8,952 lives in Punjab, while the number of confirmed cases in the province stands at 316,333.
