Peshawar: A roadside bomb killed Bomb Disposal Unit (BDU) in-charge Abdul Haq and three other members of the Unit in the outskirts here on Monday 16th December 2013. BDU in-charge Abdul Haq 43, who had defused over 60 bombs in his career was heading to Badaber to defuse a bomb when his vehicle was hit by another bomb. The blast resulted in the death of four personnel on board the vehicle including the BDU in-charge, while two others were injured. Shafqat Malik, bomb disposal chief of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, praised Haq as one of his best and most professional operatives. "We are losing our best officers. More than 10 officers of BDS (bomb disposal squad) have lost their lives while serving their motherland," Malik said. Haq was made bomb disposal chief for Peshawar after his predecessor Hukam Khan was killed while defusing two bombs in the same area in September 2012. The funeral prayers of the deceased were offered at Police Lines.
Monday Fun & Levity: To my friend, Mik, in Pensacola, FL.: Hi there Mik! Is it Monday where U R? The weekend "flew by" for me. On Saturday afternoon I received your package, and HOLY COW! - where did you learn to "WELD" cardboard together like that!!?? There was absolutely NO WAY to open that box! I thought of calling in the FBI, or Homeland Security. But it really wasn't a "threat" to anyone. The L.A.P.D. Bomb Disposal Unit wasn't needed either, for the same reason even though the package could have been described as "suspiciously" SEALED SHUT. My neighbor here was anxious to use his newly acquired jack-hammer on the small package, but I said "no thanks." So, having caused quite a stir and again, turning away my other neighbor of Japanese decent, who wanted to show-off his Samurai sword skills on the little thing, I decided to break-out my stash of "extra sharp" razor blades. I installed a blade into my trusty box cutter, put on my safety glasses, and carefully HACKED AWAY at the edges and at the ends .. ...

Travels with a Bomb Disposal Unit in Libya - The war in Libya is over, but life is still dangerous. The country is littered with unexploded ordinance from the 2011 rebellion that overthrew autocrat Moammar Gadhafi. Efforts to encourage militias to forfeit their weapons have made little progress.The olive tree casts a long shadow. It's shortly before the harvest, and the branches are heavily laden with black fruit. But this idyllic image is deceptive. It was almost as if the war had started all over again, and it's a miracle that Medad Ali Kamadin's old red tractor wasn't blown to bits, and that the farmer isn't lying dead next to the wreckage in his field. "I heard a metallic scratching noise when I was plowing. When I turned around, I saw them," says the 55-year-old, pointing to the artillery shells sticking out of the ground near the olive tree."Unbelievable. And you drove over them with the plow?" asks Joma Sabti, shaking his head. Then he and his coworker, Wedad Dwini, "fence in" the site, making a re ...

SRK.in jab tak hai jaan.fool man..and fool people
Issued in Public Interest Again Ten things to learn from Jab Tak Hai Jaan. 1.Lightening does strike the same point twice: Irony is a b*. To be struck by a car while on a motorcycle is one thing. But to be struck by a car twice is plain foolishness. Major Samar Anand is a poster boy for road safety. First, he gets hit by a car while showing off his biking skills to his new girlfriend. The second time he gets hit again by a car while waiting for Discovery Channel reporter Akira (Anushka Sharma). Look while you are crossing the road. 2. Rapidex English just goes out of business: Everything is possible in cinema. If you set your mind to learning perfect English, you can learn it despite thousands of distractions in the form of a very pretty Katrina Kaif. Shah Rukh, who goes by using Pidgin English in London, morphs into a suave, smooth-talking gentleman with a bit of a nudge from the woman he loves. She in return aces a difficult Punjabi song with guitar chords and all, taught by Shah Rukh. 3. Who needs a bom ...
Who needs a bomb suit?: There are bombs waiting to defused, literally everywhere and every day. Major Samar Anand, an officer with the army's bomb disposal unit, takes on one IED after another with his bare hands. Armed with just a clipper, Anand refuses a bomb suit every time his services are called for. Is it practical? Of course not. But that's what you do when you flirt with death - basically be stupid - without a care for your loved ones.
Amazing Indian Hero Shahrukh SHocked to see how SRK tackled bombs as bomb disposal officer in J&K.Having commanded J&K Bomb Disposal Unit for longest tenure of four years in thick of operation from 2001 to 2005 this movie a clear joke on Bomb Disposal officers how they bypass al rules and safety procedures Bomb Disposal is a very risky and technical job which must be respected.The movie send a wrong signal to troops and youth that bomb disposal is very casual operation and limited to cutting some wires. :-)
