Opinion/Editorial:

Why our national policies fail:
It is globally recognized that the success of any nation is judged by three main factors, namely prosperity, progress and peace. These 3 Ps can be made possible with well thought out and well considered policies based on thorough research and reliable statistical data, which are under taken with a realistic approach and determination.

Needed — policy to counter extremism:
Counter-terror and military operations have remained a major part of Pakistan’s security policy since 2004. Yet, even with such a heavy-handed focus on security, Pakistan still lacks a comprehensive policy on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE); with only a generic National Action Plan (with 20 broad points) as the only referred document on such matters.( http://dailytimes.com.pk/e-paper/2017-09-26/lahore/14350/108690)

Federer leads Team Europe to victory in first Laver Cup:
PRAGUE: Roger Federer won the inaugural Laver Cup for Team Europe on Sunday, beating back a fierce challenge from players from the rest of the world to claim the trophy in a dramatic final match of the weekend. Despite cruising through the first two days, the Europeans needed the last match to finalise the victory and show the dominance expected from a team featuring five of the world’s top seven players. Federer delivered in a tight 4-6 7-6(6) 11-9 win over world number 20 Nick Kyrgios, with the Australian pushing to the final point as he sought a win that would have forced an overtime doubles match to decide the tournament. But Kyrgios squandered a chance at match point and then smashed the ball into the net to end the battle, spurring Federer’s European team mates, led by top-ranked Rafael Nadal, to leap off the bench and embrace the Swiss at the net. “I was ready to go. I had to be. That is what a team member does. The boys played fantastic all weekend but we knew it could change very quickly on Sunday,” Federer said. “I was looking at getting ready maybe for doubles at the end… But I got it done.”( http://dailytimes.com.pk/e-paper/2017-09-26/lahore/14346/108715)
