SpaceX targets January 5 launch for mystery Zuma payload



SpaceX is launching Zuma, a mystery spacecraft operated by the U.S. Government for purposes unknown, thanks to it being very classified. The launch was supposed to take place last year, with a November date for the flight, but it was scrubbed, reset and then scrubbed again with no firm timeline for a follow-up attempt.

Zuma is now set to take off from Florida’s Cape Canaveral tentatively on January 5, per SpaceX, from its Pad 40 launch facility. SpaceX ran a test of propellant loading on the Falcon 9 rocket that will be taking Zuma to its target orbit (about which we know again, next to nothing besides that it’ll be somewhere in low Earth orbit). That should mean things are good to go for the launch window coming up this Friday.

Cape Canaveral is a bustling hotspot of SpaceX activity at the moment – the Falcon Heavy rocket it’s going to launch for the first time in the coming weeks is set up at its nearby launch facility, ready for testing and preflight preparations.

Grief in Kasur as residents mourn murder of minor rape victim



KASUR: Grief and shock were evident on the faces of residents of Punjab’s Kasur city as they tried desperately to come to grips with coldblooded murder of 7-year-old Zainab after being sexually assaulted for second day on Thursday. 

Zainab’s body was found dumped in a garbage heap near Kashmir Chowk in Kasur on Tuesday. In light of initial postmortem, it was said the minor has been sexually assaulted multiple times before her murder.

The minor was a resident of Road Kot area of Kasur and was abducted on January 5 (Friday) while she was on her way to tuition centre.

The incident which shook the whole country and made headlines around the world was widely condemned and calls for justice echoed on social media and other platforms.

Tensions persist in Kasur for second day

Protests in the Kasur soon erupted after Zainab’s body was recovered from a garbage heap on Tuesday, which are still ongoing.

The residents are protesting at Kali Pul Chowk, whereas the city’s main artery has been blocked for commuters. Markets and shops are also closed in protest against the heart-wrenching incident.

The Punjab Bar Council also announced a complete boycott of courts today and lawyers have demanded immediate arrest of the killer(s).

The protests claimed two lives when police resorted to firing in a bid to stop the protesters from surrounding the District Police Officer (DPO) and District Coordination Officer (DCO) offices.

They were identified as Shoaib and Mohammad Ali. Their funeral prayers were offered on Thursday amid presence of large number of people including social and political activists.

The post-mortem of slain protesters is expected to be released later today.

Keeping the tense situation in view, the authorities have called in additional police contingents to control the law and order situation on Thursday.

FIRs lodged against policemen

Two FIRs have been registered against 16 ‘unidentified’ policemen on the complaints of the slain protesters’ relatives. The FIRs have been registered under murder charges.

To diffuse mounting pressure, authorities also claimed to have arrested two policemen for resorting to firing to disperse the protesters.

Why The Jupiter In Scorpio Transit Of 2018 Will Make Your New Year’s Resolutions Stick This Year



Every single year it’s the same thing. “New Year, new me!” when really, it’s a new year, same sh*t. But this year, the Jupiter in Scorpio transit of 2018 means your New Year’s resolution could actually stick. Those who are especially in tune with the vibe of the collective will probably notice that there’s something especially “new” about this year; that regardless of how grand or minimal your New Year’s Eve plans were, there was something about the night that gave it the feeling of a decidedly blank slate. Why is that? I’m glad you asked. While some might say nothing really means anything and we’re all just wandering the planet until we die, I think it’s because Jupiter is in Scorpio.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, luck, and higher purpose, and Scorpio is the sign of sex, death, debt, transformation, and rebirth. When their powers combine, it endows us humans with a greater-than-average ability to assimilate our past experiences and come out of them healed and self-actualized. It’s only by losing our way that we’re able to carve a new path for ourselves. It’s through total confusion that we are able to find genuine clarity. And it’s from that point you can get really creative about what you want and how you’ll go about getting it, uninhibited by fear or self-consciousness.

Jupiter has been in Scorpio since October 2017, and will stay there until November of this year, meaning we’ve already been in the midst of this transit. The transformative power of Scorpio has already been working to change our perception of faith, and of what that means. Before this transit, you might have thought faith meant believing things will work out in your favor. By now, you might be beginning to understand that faith is more blind than that. Having faith means believing things will work out, period. You can set an intention and let go of it without worrying how you might get there, and without rigidly grasping to what it needs to look like.

No matter where I am in my life, and no matter what happens, I have begun to see everything — yes, absolutely everything — that happens “to me” is actually a result of my beliefs. They are beliefs that are formed in my subconscious mind. Jupiter in Scorpio encourages us to examine (Scorpio) what beliefs (Jupiter) lie in our psychological underworld. We need to dig down, bring them up, and shine a light on those beliefs in order to ask ourselves, does this really represent our feelings?

For instance, if we want to make money doing what we love most, but we are aware of the belief (built off the childhood example of parental figures) that “adults hate their jobs,” then we are doomed to consistently stay stuck in a career that is almost what we want. Every step toward doing what we love most is sacrificed in service to the belief that hating your job is the more “responsible” choice.

Another way this transit will affect people is by expanding their horizons in ways they never knew they could. Scorpio is a sign of hidden strength, and Jupiter is a planet that is about growing and expanding past any perceived limitations, either within us or around us. What others expect from you is no longer something you consider your concern. What others want from you is no longer your responsibility. As this transit makes it’s way through your life, you will learn to set your own desires ahead of the desires others might have for you. You’ll learn that when you set aside the expectations of others, you quickly surpass the expectations you held for yourself.
