Velfie is a very short video clip, generally less than six seconds that one takes of oneself as the central figure in an action or delivering a message with a smartphone camera or webcam. In other words, the selfie has now evolved into a velfie to be shared on various social network platforms and sites. In short, it is a six-second window for self-expression on social network. It is being promoted as potent mix of technology and autobiography.
World Humanitarian Day is being observed across the globe today. According to a UN news release, UN Secretary-General's Message World Humanitarian Day-2014 said, "On World Humanitarian Day, we renew our commitment to life-saving relief efforts - and we remember all those who died serving this noble cause. Last year, more humanitarian workers were kidnapped, seriously injured or killed than ever before. This is an outrage. In recent weeks, dozens of humanitarians -- including members of the UN family - have lost their lives in South Sudan and Gaza. Too many people have died or suffered from deliberate attacks."
