Nawaz Sharif has left a power vacuum at the top of the nuclear-armed country

Islamabad: In Pakistan’s 70 years of existence, not one prime minister has served a full five-year term. They’ve been fired by governor-generals and army chiefs and judges. So it was always fruitless. The ousting of Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has left a power vacuum at the top of the nuclear-armed country, yet experts say that in the long run it is unlikely to be destabilising.

Sharif's disqualification Friday by the Supreme Court over corruption allegations denies him the chance of becoming the country's first prime minister to complete a full five-year term.

Yet despite the country's history of military rule, power will likely remain within the hands of a civilian government -- and probably that of Sharif's eponymous Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Party, analysts say.

The Chanakya of 21st century

From 1997 Bihar was ruled either bu Lalu or Nitish.They have ruled Bihar for 25 years: Lalu from 1990 to 2005, either directly or through his wife as a proxy.

Google adds salon and spa bookings through Maps and Search

A Google search is all you need to schedule a haircut
The addition is an expansion through Reserve with Google, which rolled out a feature last year to book wellness and fitness classes right from a business listing within Search and Maps. Google has since partnered with several salons and spas to give us the same options there.

Booking is pretty simple and you can do it a couple of different ways. You can do it by going to Maps, searching for the salon and then booking straight from there. It’s the same process if you go to Search. Another, but less convenient way, is to go to Reserve with Google’s site and type in the salon or spa there.

The addition seems pretty convenient for users and keeps them on the Google platform, but also helps the search giant collect a bunch of data about where we are going and what we are doing with our time.
