Opinion/Editorial:

Please do not exclude:
After a serious outbreak of polio in 1921, FD Roosevelt became a wheelchair user yet he went on to become the longest occupant of the White House during tumultuous times of economic depression and World War II between 1933 to 1945, showing how his impairment did not turn into disability. It is not the physical impairment but the attitude of society which creates disability. In recent decades, this approach of viewing disability as a social rather than a medical problem has gained wide currency in the developed world. But in Pakistan we still view disability as a medical condition of an individual; which requires only curative and rehabilitative strategies to change the individual to adapt to society.

Regulate the ‘Alien’ in Pakistan:
The Pak-China collaboration has already begun producing benefits and will no doubt bring development and growth to our country and its people. However, the fact that this collaboration is expanding on all fronts, merits the need to mechanize, monitor and regulate the expansion – a need that cannot be negated. One of the important aspects in this regard is the migration that would be taking place between the nationals of China and Pakistan in to each other’s state. This movement has already begun and will likely gain more momentum as the two states indulge more heavily in collaborative projects and activities. And this time around the movement will, more than likely, not be limited to the persons who intend to remain here on a short term basis, instead there will increasingly be a number of the these people who seek new opportunities and eventually plan to settle and establish permanent residencies.( http://nation.com.pk/E-Paper/lahore/2017-10-04/page-6/detail-4)

Nadal saves two match points to advance at China Open:
BEIJING: Rafael Nadal needed to save two match points before advancing to the second round at the China Open. The top-ranked Spaniard, playing for the first time since winning the U.S. Open title last month, rallied to beat Lucas Pouille 4-6, 7-6 (6), 7-5 Tuesday. Pouille held two match points while leading 6-4 in the second-set tiebreaker. But Nadal reeled off four straight points to take the set and turn the match around. “Was a very tough first round, as I say the other day,” said Nadal, who lost to Pouille in five sets at the 2016 U.S. Open. “He played well, I think. Very aggressive. He’s serving well. For me was little bit difficult at the beginning. Then I started to play better, I think. “But still, I didn’t have the control of the match for almost all the time.” In the final set, Nadal broke Pouille’s serve to take a 6-5 lead and then served out the match. Nadal is 57-9 this season and leads the tour with five ATP singles titles, including the French Open. He won the China Open title as a teenager in 2005 and has a 21-5 record in Beijing. He next plays Thursday against Karen Khachanov, who beat Chinese wild-card entry Wu Di.( http://dailytimes.com.pk/e-paper/2017-10-04/lahore/14493/109896)
