Crown prince becomes oil-rich Kuwait’s new ruling emir – Times of India

DUBAI: Kuwait's Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al Ahmad Al Sabah became the oil-rich nation's new ruling emir Tuesday night, reaching the highest post in the country after decades in its security services. Sheikh Nawaf, 83, had served as the crown prince since 2006, jumping a traditional order of alternating rule between the Al Jaber and the Al Salim branches of the country's ruling family. While his taking of the throne came as prescribed by Kuwait's constitution, there likely will be negotiations behind the scenes in the weeks ahead over who will become the country's next crown prince. Those discussions likely will take time as Kuwait mourns its late ruler, Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, who died Tuesday at the age of 91, and weighs who best represents a country that had carefully positio...

India has never accepted unilaterally defined 1959 LAC: MEA | India News – Times of India

Google Duo finally makes it easy to switch off the camera – Times of India

Google Duo, after an update in 2019, simply made it difficult to turn off the camera during a video call. While in all video calling interfaces, there’s always a toggle option to switch off the camera whenever you want to, Google Duo surprisingly omitted it. Now, Google is said to be bringing it back. Google has also confirmed the same through a Twitter post which now showcases that Google Duo has a video toggle on/on button right on the screen itself. However, Google is said to be gradually rolling it out to most devices. The video toggle on/off feature is a basic privacy tool without which users had to cover the camera lens with their fingers. Thankfully, Google considers that it is a good decision to get it back. Meanwhile, Google rolled out a new update to the web version of the Goo...

Nine pilot whales die stranded on Spain’s northern coast – Times of India

CARRENO, SPAIN: Nine stranded pilot whales have died on a beach on Spain's northern coast but local authorities and residents managed to help others back at sea, the regional government said on Tuesday. The whales were spotted on Monday on the Moris beach, in Carreno, Asturias. Officials and volunteers worked until late at night to help them, the Asturias government said. "Half a dozen have managed to return to the sea, although they remain close to the coast. Efforts are now focused on keeping them from returning to the beach," it said. The bodies of the nine dead whales will undergo an autopsy in the nearby town of Gijon. Images of stranded whales attracted worldwide attention earlier this month in Australia, where hundreds died.
