Lobs and bed head hair:

It’s either “I just got out of bed” or “Fill me a glass of champagne, I got this” kind of hair this summer. Get yourself a lob because the summer started from them and is going to end at lobs. From Taylor Swift to Selena Gomez this hair trend is the highlight of the season.

Karachi

KARACHI, Pakistan: The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU,) the research and analysis division of the Economist Group, has ranked Karachi among the least livable cities in the world.

140 cities were ranked in the annual EIU survey on a range of factors, including political and social stability, education, crime, and access to healthcare.

Provincial capital Karachi was only able to top three cities, namely Damascus in Syria, Dhaka in Bangladesh, and Lagos in Nigeria, this year around, taking the 137th slot.

According to the EIU report, civil war and terrorism played a “strong role” in determining the worst performing cities.

The cities held the lowest ranks, 11 occupied the very bottom tier of livability, where ratings fell below 50 per cent and most aspects of living were severely restricted.

This is not only because stability indicators had the highest single scores but also because factors defining stability could spread to have an adverse effect on other categories, the EIU observed.

The [low] rankings of these cities like Damascus, Karachi and Tripoli saw conflict responsible for many of the lowest scores.

Moreover, the survey found Middle East, Africa and Asia scoring the lowest ranks; due to the factors determining stability had adverse effects on other categories too.

The EIU stated that the only cities that had seen a decline in their stability indicators over the past six months were Abu Dhabi (71st) and Dubai (69th) in the United Arab Emirates, Colombo (130th) in Sri Lanka and Warsaw (65th) in Poland.

The buses have photos of Pakistan’s highest peaks, majestic landscapes, football that was made in Pakistan and played with in the FIFA World Cup 2018 and monuments representing the country’s magnificent architecture and diverse culture.

Berlin is full of tourists, especially during summer, who will get to see the buses daily.

The banners on the buses in Berlin aim to attract foreign tourists to Pakistan which remains unexplored by many.

For many Europeans, the northern areas of Pakistan offer a promising adventure, but the ancient civilisation of Moen-jo-Daro (mound of the dead) has also fascinated German archaeologists and researchers.

Toyota Rush

KARACHI, Pakistan: The Indus Motor Company (IMC) has announced that it will start importing completely built units of Toyota Rush from next month.

Toyota dealers in Karachi confirmed that the company will launch the model next month. They expect the price to be between Rs3.8 million and Rs4.8 million.

Mohammad Aziz, a dealer of used imported cars, told Pakistani media outlet Express Tribune that Toyota previously tested the market with the Hybrid Prius but the experiment failed.

“The new imported Prius was priced at Rs4.5 million while a couple of years old imported Prius was selling at half the price in the markey. One could literally have bought two cars in the price of new Prius,” he said.

Another dealer, Syed Anjum, said it would be plain stupidity of a person to buy a new Rush when they can buy 2013 Rush model for half the price.

However, he added that the market reaction would only be known once the car is officially launched next month.

Research analyst Farheen Irfan believes that the company has taken the initiative in order to maintain its market share when several new OEMs like Kia, Hyundai and Changan have prepared to tap Pakistan’s auto industry.

“Moreover, there’s a big gap between Toyota’s main brands. The company could have also thought to increase its presence at a segment in between them to cater to a larger market amid increasing competition,” she said.

However, she believes that under the present macroeconomic variables, no existing auto manufacturing company would think of starting another assembly plant in the country.

“This cannot be considered as a precursor that Toyota might establish an assembly plant for Rush in the future even if this experiment of selling CBUs is successful.”
