  1. As one of the world's largest entertainment companies, Disney is used to adoring fans but one man has topped them all, visiting its California theme park 2,000 days in a row. Jeff Reitz marked the milestone on Thursday, using his Disneyland Resort annual pass which had enabled his trek to the park on a daily basis since January 1, 2012. "What we mostly know about him is that he loves Disneyland," said John McClintock, a spokesman for the theme park. "When I asked him what he likes about the park, he said he likes all the shows and all the attractions but he did mention that he really likes to listen to the music in the park," he added. "I guess he finds it relaxing." McClintock said Disney has yet to come across someone as enamored with the park as Reitz, an Air Force veteran in his 40s who usually shows up after work and spends a few hours. "His girlfriend frequently comes with him but not every day," he said. "That would be true love, wouldn't it?"

  4. While some of us show off our boxing skills on roads or in video games, Odisha's Satyapira Pradhan used his skills in the right place and has apparently made it to the Guinness World Records, by throwing the most number of punches with one hand in one minute. Pradhan is a physiotherapy student from Bhawanipatna, Kalahandi district. Reportedly, the record was earlier held by martial arts student Muhammad Rashid from Pakistan, who achieved the spot last year with 377 punches, on October 22. Pradhan is said to have punched 393 times in a minute with one hand. © Facebook Pradhan is currently waiting for confirmation from Guinness World Records. He told The Hindu, “A one-minute video was recorded while I kept punching with my right hand. Three separate attempts were made by me. Video of the last attempt was run in slow motion.” He further said although they counted 398 punches, since they were unsure about five punches, they kept the count to 393. Pradhan applied for the challenge after he got to know about it nearly six months ago. He said, “I got approval from Guinness World Records authorities to make attempts on June 5. After getting approval, I organized the event on Tuesday.” While we are eagerly awaiting the confirmation let's just hope that he makes it since this can be a huge achievement for all of us.
  5. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg are some of the names many of us grew up idolizing. Their success stories have time and again given wings to our ‘distant dreams' of changing our fate and that of the world, by doing something that is deemed unachievable. However, while only a select few find ways to achieve that dream, most of us end up finding excuses for not doing it. Well, success can only occur when your dreams become bigger than all those excuses, and this man from Ratnagiri has proved exactly that. His heart and courage were bigger than his dreams which is why there was nothing that could stop his from getting what he wanted; not even the fact that he failed in class 10 or that he was once living on the streets. He belongs to a family of barbers, so becoming one was something that he had to fulfill. But, he didn't want to settle for that, he wanted to do be something bigger – a professional hairdresser and stylist in Bollywood. © wikimedia /representation Despite being mocked by his cousins, this 33-year-old man's heart encouraged him to give his best shot and the rest is history. He even had to live on the streets for a few months, since he couldn't afford anything. It was his willpower to change his life for good that he not only learned Hindi, but also taught himself English by ovserving foreigners who came to the salon. With time and practice, he has now learnt to speak fluent English. From living on the streets to flying to Europe as a professional for a wedding and working with Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol in ‘Aisha'; he has come a long way and there is nothing that can stop him from making it big. Today he owns an apartment of his own, supports his family and has also been featured in Vogue magazine. He said, “All my dreams came true…Why? Because I believed in myself so stubbornly that the world had no other option but to believe in me too” and we couldn't agree more.
  6. Police said they arrested a man outside London's Paddington Station on Monday but added that the incident was not terrorism-related, a few hours after a van ploughed into worshippers near a mosque in the British capital. "Officers have arrested a man outside Paddington for public disorder and possessing an offensive weapon. The incident is not terror related," British Transport Police said in a statement. Video footage posted on Twitter showed officers restraining a shirtless man outside the station before taking him away. Police have said the earlier attack at the mosque, which injured 10 people, appeared to be a terrorism-incident which would make it the fourth such attack in three months in Britain.
  7. HEREFORD: Police in West Midlands have arrested a man with knives and an axe near an Army Reserve centre, reported the BBC. The 23-year-old man was arrested on Sunday night. Police officials said there was nothing to indicate that there was a threat to the army centre and was not related to the terror attack in Finsbury Park, London. The man?s motives are not yet known and he is in custody, BBC quoted police officials as saying. ?On identifying the man our officers took prompt action to contain the threat and take him into custody,? said Asst Ch Con Martin Evans of West Mercia Police. He added that an "extremely sensitive investigation" was being carried out and added that additional police patrols would take place in the town to safeguard the citizens.
  8. Refurbishing a house takes money, and if you want a luxury home, that’s a lot of money. You’d rather live more humbly than spend a major chunk of your peanuts salary in buying expensive furniture. Hampshire resident Adrian Reeman doesn’t agree. The 67-year-old man converted his 2BHK flat into a palace using Do-It-Yourself hacks. Yes, he did it himself, while we wait for the plumber to fix our bathroom tap. © Caters Adrian is a pensioner who worked as a chef in the Merchant Navy, and had no professional knowledge of how to build and create. Just a man with a hammer and chisel. The entire process took 30 years as Adrian was not working on it continuously but between his jobs whenever he could spare the time. © Caters He began from scratch, working on the dull interiors of his council flat. From carving beautiful woodwork on panels to changing doors, ceilings and every possible inch of the flat, he managed to create a breathtaking wonder. The house now resembles the Palace of Versailles, even though Adrian hasn’t ever been to the palace. Well, now he lives in one. How He Did It © Caters Since Adrian has no professional knowledge of carpentry, masonry etc., he just began with fixing basic paneling of walls and ceilings. The more he worked on the house, the more he got interested in creating a masterpiece. “I just thought it would keep me busy if I started to make it look nicer, and the project grew from there,” he told The Sun. And it didn’t cost him a bomb since he sourced a lot of his materials from skips and shops giving away discarded pieces. He recreated a lot of furniture and wardrobes using discarded wood, and tables from old wooden bowls. © Caters He even retouched the bathroom to give it a beautiful marble finished look and is still doing the final touches. “I’m currently working to make the toilet look like its made of marble. It’s only a small lavatory, and you can barely turn around in it, but that doesn’t mean you cannot make it look grand,” he was quoted by The Sun as saying. He lives there with his wife Annette who now loves her new home. But there’s a dampener – it’s a rented house and a clause in the agreement requires them to return the flat to its original state when vacating! Now, of course, that won’t be possible!
  9. Photo: Twitter LONDON: Local police on Friday arrested a man at the fence surrounding the British parliament on suspicion of carrying a knife, which comes nearly three months after an Islamist terror attack in the same area. The man was detained at 11:10 am (1010 GMT) by the Palace of Westminster in central London, police said in a statement. "The man -- aged in his 30s -- was arrested on suspicion of possession of a knife. There are no reports of any injuries," the brief statement said. A bearded man, wearing black trousers and a grey sweatshirt, could be seen being held against the fence with his arms behind his back by a police officer. A parliamentary spokesman said: "We are aware of an incident outside the Palace of Westminster, which is being dealt with by the Metropolitan Police." On March 22, knifeman Khalid Masood drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing four, and fatally stabbed a policeman guarding the gates of parliament before being shot dead by armed officers. On April 27, a man was arrested across the street from parliament. Police said knives were recovered from him. Khalid Mohammed Omar Ali, 27, of north London, was charged with the intention of committing acts of terrorism engaged in conduct in preparation for giving effect to that intention. He was also charged with two counts relating to explosive substances in Afghanistan in 2012. Friday´s arrest comes on the first anniversary of the murder of MP Jo Cox, who was shot and stabbed to death in her constituency by a man with links to neo-Nazi organisations. More than 110,000 events were to take place around Britain between Friday and Sunday for "The Great Get Together" in honour of Cox, celebrating her belief that "we have far more in common than that which divides us".
  10. FAISALABAD: A man allegedly killed his two sisters in the name of honour in Faisalabad?s Nishatabad vicinity late Thursday. The suspect, Allah Ditta, was taking his sisters Sidra,18, and Aliza,14, to his home from their paternal home when he strangled the women and escaped, police officials said. The bodies were shifted to Allied Hospital for post mortem. The police are on the lookout for the suspect, a local police spokesperson said. Earlier on May 8, a father in collusion with his son strangled his daughter to death, in what appeared to be a case of honour killing, in Karachi?s Kemari area.
  11. Police investigate a shooting scene after a gunman opened fire on Republican members of Congress during a baseball practice near Washington in Alexandria, Virginia, US, June 14, 2017. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts ALEXANDRIA, VA.: A man who had posted angry messages against President Donald Trump and other Republicans on social media opened fire on Republican lawmakers practising for a charity baseball game on Wednesday, wounding a senior US House member and three other people. The gunman, a 66-year-old Illinois man, fired repeatedly at the men playing on a baseball field in suburban Alexandria, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. He was wounded in a gunfight with Capitol Hill police who were at the scene, and police said he later died. Steve Scalise, the No. 3 Republican in the House of Representatives, was shot in the hip. He was tended to by fellow lawmakers, including Brad Wenstrup, a congressman who is a physician, before being transported to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition. Also wounded were one current congressional aide and one former aide who now works as a lobbyist, officials said. One Capitol Hill police officer suffered a gunshot wound and another officer twisted an ankle, an official said. While police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it was too early to determine whether it was a deliberate political attack, the shooting intensified concerns about the sharp divide and bitter rhetoric in US politics. It also quickly revived the debate about gun rights in America. Virginia's Democratic governor, Terry McAuliffe, urged gun control measures. "This is not what today is about, but there are too many guns on the street," McAuliffe said at a news conference near the scene of the shooting. Scalise has been a strong opponent of gun control measures. The gunman was identified by a senior US official as James Hodgkinson from the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois. He had worked as a home inspector. Hodgkinson had raged against Trump on social media and was a member of anti-Republican groups on Facebook including, "The Road to Hell Is Paved With Republicans," "Terminate The Republican Party," and "Donald Trump is not my President," a search of his Facebook profile showed. As businessman Trump rose to become the Republican Party nominee in the 2016 presidential election, his brash style and outspoken views on immigration and other policies led to mass protests, including on the weekend of his inauguration in January. Representative Tim Ryan, who early on Wednesday was practising for the ballgame with fellow Democrats, told reporters that Washington politicians needed to cool their rhetoric. "We've got to get back to...where things aren't so personal and we're so judgmental of each other. It's got to stop. A member of the US Congress got shot because they didn't like (his) political views," Ryan said. Calls for unity Trump announced the gunman's death and called Scalise, a 51-year-old Louisiana congressman, a good friend. "He's a patriot and he's a fighter. He will recover from this assault," Trump said. Trump also called for unity. "We are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good," he said. In a show of bipartisanship, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said on the floor of the House, "An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us." The House's top Democrat Nancy Pelosi echoed Ryan's message. The shooting happened shortly after 7 AM, while lawmakers were practising their hitting and fielding a day before the annual charity congressional baseball game pitting Republicans against Democrats. There were 20 House members and two senators present, and the shooting lasted about 10 minutes, said Representative Joe Barton, the Republican team's manager. The charity game will go ahead as scheduled at Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team. Two lawmakers who were at the scene, Representatives Ron DeSantis and Jeff Duncan, indicated there might have been a political motive in the attack. Duncan said that as he left the field, the man who would later open fire approached him in the parking lot. "He asked me who was practising this morning, Republicans or Democrats, and I said, 'That's the Republicans practising'," Duncan told reporters. DeSantis gave a similar account. Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent who sought the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, said he had been told that Hodgkinson had served as a volunteer with his campaign. "Let me be as clear as I can be: violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms," Sanders said. Ryan, the House speaker, is reviewing rules on how rank-and-file lawmakers can increase their personal security, including questions about paying for additional protection through member accounts and campaign funds, according to several lawmakers. "Members get threats on a regular basis and have trouble determining which are real," House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer told reporters. Representative James Clyburn, a Democrat, rejected the idea that the shooting was motivated by partisan politics. "I'm not a Republican and I've had all kinds of threats against me and my family. It's got nothing to do with partisan politics." 'Heroism' of police The shooting took place at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in the Del Ray neighbourhood of Alexandria, across the Potomac River from Washington. Representative Mo Brooks told CNN that during batting practice, he heard a "bam" and then a quick succession of shots and saw the gunman shooting through the holes in a chain link fence. When Scalise was shot, he went down on the infield between the first and second base, then dragged himself into the grassy outfield as the incident unfolded, leaving a trail of blood, Brooks said. Two Capitol police officers who were there to provide security for the lawmakers engaged the gunman with pistols, Brooks said. "But for the Capitol police and the heroism they showed, it could very well have been a large-scale massacre. All we would have had would have been baseball bats versus a rifle. Those aren't good odds," Brooks said. Brooks estimated 50 to 100 shots were fired. Wednesday's attack was the first shooting of a member of Congress since January 2011, when Democratic Representative Gabby Giffords was seriously wounded in an assassination attempt at a gathering of constituents in Tucson, Arizona. She survived, but six people were killed. Giffords resigned from Congress and became an activist for gun restrictions.
  12. When Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) decided to make Spider-Man part of their world, people just couldn’t stop talking about it. It came as a surprise to many when Marvel announced that Tom Holland was replacing Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. Fans wondered if Tom could do justice with the character that is loved by millions. And finally, we got a glimpse of Marvel’s Spiderman in 'Captain America: Civil War'. People loved the film and couldn’t stop raving about MCU’s way of representing Spider-Man. Tom going head to head with major Superheroes like Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye and more was a treat to watch. In fact, critics applauded Tom for his acting skills and style. © YouTube And now after Captain America, Tom is all set to entertain us in his film 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Joining him is Tony Stark aka Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) as the 'Coolest Mentor Ever'. Few seconds into the clip, we see Tony saying, “I think with a little bit more mentoring, you'll be a real asset to the team.” © YouTube Robert shares how Tony in the film is looking for Peter Parker. "Tony is keeping a real close eye on him and making sure that he is a worthy recruit for the Avengers. He's quite gifted and a very talented guy. Peter Parker is constantly learning throughout the movie and he is trying to prove himself to Tony that he is ready to be an Avenger. He is old enough to take on bigger tasks. I saw that relationship like a big brother relationship,” shares Tom. Well, no doubt Iron Man is the best mentor one can get. Wondering what is Iron Man’s advice for Spider-Man? Well being his best he says, "Don't do anything, I would do. And definitely, don't do anything I wouldn't do. There's a little grey area in there and that's where you operate." Looking at the clip, we just can't wait to see Iron Man and Spider-Man together. The film 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' is set to release on July 7.
  13. Empathizing with someone’s pain comes easy to us, but going to any lengths to help them is something that only a few people are capable of doing. 43-year-old Mohammed Shahzore Khan from Hyderabad, is one such good samaritan who extended his helping hand to people living in remote areas, at a time when others chose to turn a blind eye towards them. After hearing stories about people in rural areas carrying bodies of the dead on foot or bicycles in the absence of ambulances, Khan, who owns the Hyderabad-based Deccan Motor Cycle and Scooter Garage, decided to create a bike ambulance for them. © Facebook This customised bike ambulance with a side car, was built in 35 days and has almost everything one needs for emergency situation – first aid kit, an oxygen cylinder installed on its side, a small fan, a shade over the bed and a portable stretcher. In fact, it also has a blue ambulance light on top like the regular ones, and can easily weave through heavy traffic and save time while taking seriously injured patients to the hospital. Khan, who makes two, three and four-wheeler vehicles for the physically handicapped, said “We work for the physically handicapped. We design vehicles for them such as cars, scooters and bikes. So, I thought why not design an ambulance to solve problems faced by people living in rural areas.” The total cost of creating this ambulance was nearly Rs. 1.1 lakh. For the people living in remote areas, where accessibility and affordability of ambulances is still a problem, Khan’s creation is nothing short of a boon for them. We need more people like Khan and his creation has proved that humanity hasn’t entirely lost its way and is still going strong in a society where people are only concerned about their own life and give zero f**ks to others’ problems.
  14. We know nature’s call is hard to miss, but what does one do when their carnal desires overpower their thinking skills and the testosterone levels skyrocket, while on a plane that’s at a height of 32,000 ft? Well, if you think like Shaun Edmondson, you will possibly shout ‘YOLO’ in your mind and start making out with the girl. This story is not the brainchild of our thirsty or lustful minds. It actually happened on a Ryanair flight from Manchester to Ibiza, where the passengers got the chance to see a supposedly drunk couple have *** mid-flight. So while others were fastening their seat belts for safety, this guy was loosening his belt, because hey, who doesn’t want to get laid? © Facebook But, the craziness of the incident doesn’t end here. While, some assumed that these two were so madly in love with each other that they couldn’t wait till they reached home, it was only found later that the guy was actually cheating on his pregnant fiancée. So, when Shaun, who is a sous chef, was busy cooking up some controversial sh*t on the flight, Jena Ross, his girlfriend of 6 years and now fiancée was waiting for him at home. One of Shaun friends also commented on this matter saying, “He is known as a bit of a ladies’ man. That’s just a random woman he’s with, they didn’t know each other before the day.” The person further added “Shaun and Jenna are due to marry soon but that clearly won’t stop him.” Well, the West isn’t called progressive for no reason. While, we Indians were losing our sh*t over a Porn clip being accidently played at the Metro station, this couple went all out and the onlookers looked more than happy enjoying and filming this live *** scene. We guess for once even the passengers weren’t bothered about the flight’s sudden jerks as they were all busy looking at the guy getting laid. Talking about the deets, this ‘extremely drunk’ and sexually-aroused couple was flying from Manchester to Ibiza and before the laughing passengers could realize, the couple already started having ***. One of the passengers said, “You could see the girl taking off her pants and he pulled his trousers off. She started riding him. I had to get my phone out. I have never seen anything like that.” The couple was apparently unaware that they were being filmed. © Facebook A spokesman for Ryanair said, “We are looking into this matter. We will not tolerate unruly, disruptive or inappropriate behaviour at any time and any passengers who appear to behave in an unacceptable manner may be liable for further sanctions.” While, the authorities will look into this matter now, the cabin crew was probably busy looking at the randy couple because they reportedly didn’t do anything to stop the couple. While, technology and social media are irrefutably two of the most powerful tools that this generation could have got its hands on, there is no denying that at times it can majorly f**k things up for people. To give you a glimpse of how dangerous technology can be, let’s take you to a walk down the memory lane and reintroduce Evan Scribner, who was caught cheating on his girlfriend while he was busy catching Pokémon from his ex’s place. This time around it wasn’t ‘Pokémon Go’, but social media that ruined this man’s relationship or should we say saved the woman whom he was cheating on. Source: The Sun
  15. What if I told you I met a mind reader? Would you believe me? I would never have believed if someone had told me that. But, that was until about a week ago. Then, I met Mohit Rao, a mind reader, mentalist and a corporate entertainer who runs a show called Se7en. He can read your mind, control your thoughts and even influence your decisions. Clearly, Mohit Rao is a force to reckon with and someone you should never mess with, ever. © Facebook After finishing his MBA, Mohit worked in the marketing team of one of India’s largest IT Companies and had a regular 9 to 5 job. Then, one day, an interesting conversation changed everything. "At a party, I met this psychiatrist who said to me, ‘Don't think of an elephant!’ Then said ‘Don't think of two elephants’, and then he said ‘Don't think of two elephants which are pink in colour!’ And that’s exactly what I was thinking of!” Mohit says. “It made me wonder how somebody else can tell me what to think of and that’s when and how I began my journey into the subconscious mind.” Mohit read books, scoured the internet and reached out to people across the globe to try and better understand how the mind works. He even decided to quit his full time job and there was no looking back, henceforth. Almost 5 years down the line, Mohit says it’s been a very rewarding journey for him—emotionally, financially and professionally. “To be able to motivate people from all walks of life is truly, exhilarating,” he says. Mohit is often seen performing at various high profile events that are organized by Reliance, the Royal Challengers’ IPL team and so on. While it is an entertainment show at its core, Mohit’s tricks inspire people by helping them to believe in the power of their mind. And interestingly enough, in his line of work, Mohit strikes a fine balance between entertainment and mindfulness. “Initially, the show began as pure entertainment,” he tells me. “But it is more about my understanding of how to use our mind to its fullest potential.” Over time, Mohit realized that the through his entertainment, he could also motivate the audience he drew. “I could help them aspire to greater heights in their lives.” © Facebook So What Goes Into The Art Of Mindreading? “There are many sciences that go into mindreading and the likes,” informs Mohit. Psychology, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnosis, Body Language reading, Dream analysis and a significant amount of showmanship is required to pull off the act with enough confidence as authenticity. But the biggest secret, Mohit reveals, is to string it all together and present it in a way that hooks the audience's attention for a good 45 minutes. Mohit’s audience is always left with a feeling of amazement and wonder, laced with the reminder that we all have the ability to achieve our wildest dreams, if we put our mind to it. “Mindreading requires tremendous practice and skill, but what works for me more than anything is a certain God-given skill that helps me do what I do.” He sounds like a character straight out of the classic Christian Bale-Hugh Jackman starrer, 'The Prestige'. Only, he isn’t a magician, at all. He just knows the art of unlocking areas of the mind that we, as normal human beings, did not know existed. Getting a person into the right frame of mind is the key, adds Mohit. “Music makes it easier for me to read what someone is thinking”, he reveals. “However, during the show, while I have used music in parts, I prefer to use silence, instead.” Pin-drop silence he says, is sometimes far more powerful as a tool to create mystery and drama, than music. “I also tell a lot of personal stories because people always want to know the genesis of these skills in my life,” Mohit adds. He shares one such personal story with us. “About a year ago, I decided that I wanted to drive a car blindfolded, reading the mind of the person next to me,” he starts. And to add some level of excitement to the experience, Mohit and his team invited two taxi drivers to sit in the passengers’ seats. “Their reactions were priceless,” he reveals. Mohit even uploaded the video footage from the stunt on his website for all to see. But, that’s not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Mohit’s bravery, or as some might call it, daredevilry. Mohit is known to have been the one to predict exact closing of the BSE Sensex on live national television, to the point where he has now been debarred from participating in the stock market. The incident led to him being called the Wolf Of Dalal Street. “A conversation with my father put me on a path to try and predict that,” he tells me. The evening before the prediction, Mohit went to a lawyer to check on the precautions to be taken. “His advice to me was to add it to the show, but not invest in equities myself and not give any tips or guidance, ever,” Mohit says. While predicting the BSE Sensex was a phenomenal feat and put Mohit on the radar for a lot of reasons, according to him, it was all about achieving the impossible. “Anything is possible if you put your mind to it,” he quips confidently. What Mohit wants above all is that India develop to its full potential and if mindreading, hypnotism and telepathy help his audiences realize their visions, then his job is half done. “Last year, Prime Minister Modi spoke about trying to make India a developed nation in one generation,” he remembers. “For me, as a patriotic, this is a really worthy vision to strive for.”
  16. While India and South Africa were battling it out on the ground for the elusive semi-finals spot, Twitter was busy proving its mettle making memes, off the field. While both the teams locked horns to secure this significant spot, one Indian chap was trying hard to lock hearts with a woman who was engrossed in finishing what looked like a pizza. After coming across this picture, how could one expect Twitter to stay calm? As expected, this one picture sparked a Twitter meme war and things took a hilarious turn thereafter. © Twitter Those who were glued to their TV sets during the India Pakistan match will know that the match was popular for two primary reasons. First was obviously India’s epic victory over Pakistan and second was a couple who was sitting in the stands cheering the respective teams. Twitter couldn’t help but react to this overflow of love between both the nations, and ended up turning the picture into one of the best cricket memes of 2017. © Twitter But, it seems that Indians are brimming with love and looking for opportunities to spread it across the world and this guy has now become the crusader of this ‘Divided by countries, united by Cricket’ community. This image of an Indian guy looking at the girl eating next to him has already broken the internet and the entire credit goes to the Twitterati and their ingenuity. So, we did what we are good at, digging out the best memes and tweets from the internet and help you recover from the Monday blues.

  17. British police investigating last weekend's deadly attacks on London Bridge said they arrested a 19-year-old man in east London on Sunday. The Metropolitan Police, in a statement posted on its website, said the man was taken into custody at a south London police station and was being detained under the Terrorism Act. Six other men are in custody in connection with last Saturday's incident in which eight people were killed and 50 injured after three militants drove into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed people.
  18. BAHAWALPUR: An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Saturday handed death sentence to a man for uploading blasphemous content on social media. According to the CTD, the accused used to upload blasphemous and hateful content on social networking sites. He was arrested by Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) a year ago and a case was lodged against him under relevant clauses of the Anti-Terrorism Act. The ATC conducted hearings of the case in New Central Jail Bahawalpur, over a year's period. The court today handed death sentence to the accused. This is first case in which an accused has been sentenced to death over blasphemy on social media. He, however, can file an appeal against the ATC verdict in high court and the Supreme Court.

  20. What’s the last video you watched on YouTube? Probably some YouTuber reviewing something, right? A trailer for a movie maybe? What did you get out of it? A brief moment of enjoyment? Great. That’s what YouTube is all about. Here’s the Daily Show where Trevor Noah talks about James Comey taking the stand in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee: But then, there are people like Paen Long, a car mechanic by profession, who is obsessed with aeroplanes. The Cambodian man has never even set foot in an aircraft in his life. This just goes to show that when you’re properly motivated, anything is possible. He chose an aeroplane over a helicopter because he believed it would be easier to build. He would to work at night since he was worried about everyone in his village of Prey Chhor making fun of him. It wasn’t a walk in the park by any stretch of the imagination. BBC Here’s a little information about the plane he built: - It’s modelled after Japanese warplanes from WWII. - It has a wing span of 5.5 m. - It is made mostly from recycled materials. - It cost over $10,000 to build. - It weighs 500 kgs. BBC Although his maiden flight wasn’t what you could term a success, he managed to get the plane 50 m above the ground before crashing, Mr Long hasn’t lost hope. He is now working on a seaplane which he believes will be light enough to fly. He has already spent more than $3,000 on the seaplane and even though he will have to journey almost 200 km before he can find a water body big enough for him to make this attempt, there’s nothing that’s going to stand in the way of him making the impossible, possible. BBC We hope Mr Long follows in the footsteps of the Wright Brothers and is able to give wings to his dreams, literally. The BBC did a story on Mr Long and you can read it here.
  21. One of Delhi’s most loved venues for acoustic gigs, upcoming as well as established musicians, The Piano Man Jazz Club came under significant amounts of fire this past week. And it was only because the name of a band had been derogatory of a certain section of society. Owner, Arjun Sagar Gupta, however, saw the band as having great musical potential. It was purely a musical decision. What the incident has really brought to the surface over the past few days is that at the very core of it, we are an intolerant country, and this incident in itself isn’t the only example in that sense. Having said that, yes, we need to be slightly more aware of how our ignorance might be offensive to others; especially since we already live in sensitive times that are somehow all the more fired up by social media backlash. We need to know the difference between creative freedoms and social offense. In a society like ours, we forget that everything—even art and creativity—is often taken personally. Today, we stand to lose a great venue that has, ever since its inception within the city, worked towards creating, producing and curating quality music for artists, listeners and performers, alike. So, we need to be asking the right questions and thinking through our actions. The Piano Man Jazz Club has become a social meet for the thinking musicians, for the different musicians, for music that has always meant more. It attracts students, professionals, entrepreneurs and the older generations, alike because it spoke the language of music—a language that everyone understands and associates with. From having showcased performances by Vasundhara Vee, one of India’s leading female Jazz artists to giving younger musicians a platform to present their talents; from bringing in international Jazz quartets to curating homegrown experiences, the venue has earned a name for itself in a way that not many venues today have. But, does it deserve to meted out with such harsh judgments that could affect the functioning of the place? © Facebook The incident has, undoubtedly affected the entire independent music community, with lot of industry insiders—artists, event managers, venue owners—being in a shaken state of how a small and unforeseen incident could lead to such dire consequences. Is that really fair? Could it have been avoided? We got seven such individuals from within the community to voice their opinions about the incident and whether or not this issue could have been better managed. Here’s what they have to say… Dhruv Visvanath, Musician, Dhruv Visvanath “The first thing I'd like to say is that we all deserve to have an opinion and we all deserve an opportunity to respect and debate it. I think we defiled the very foundations of who we are by responding so aggressively towards the whole situation. It kind of harks back to how there were reports of the Tejas train left in tatters after its first journey. It made me feel as if we don't deserve nice things. I hope it doesn't affect things at the Piano man, I absolutely love and respect what they're doing and I would heartily encourage people to keep going to understand what they do there.” Chaitanya Bhalla, Guitarist & Audio Engineer, The Ska Vengers & Sonic Shift “It's unfortunate how this situation has played out. People need to be aware that these terms are extremely derogatory, and cannot be appropriated as artistic freedoms. The name of the band in question was kept in poor taste, though I feel it's a case of ignorance to the implications of such a word. Arjun sagar Gupta of Piano man is not a malicious or racist individual, and has apologised for the misunderstanding. It was not his intent to marginalise any group and a band name kept by freelance musicians shouldn't reflect the views of the café.” © Facebook Rijul Victor, Musician-Drummer & Producer, Corridors & Colossal Figures “In my opinion, people's approach in this hyper social media wave is to find flaws and blow it out of proportion. It’s all about term throwing and seems pretty petty to be honest. Changing of the artists name didnt stop people from stopping, even when the event was cancelled, it still wasn't good enough. The owner's apology was also scrutinised and regarded as pompous and privileged. People need to fucking chill the **** out!” Nishant Tyagi, Director, Grapevine Online “The incident does highlight the fact that we're ignorant towards discrimination faced by certain sections of the society, but highlighting it as upper caste vs. lower caste issue would be wrong. The venue in question has garnered huge respect in terms of what they're contributing to the music scene, and calling them 'elitist' or 'privileged' because they allowed something they didn't have much insight shouldn't be the target here. The venue provides equal experience to everyone, irrespective of their caste, creed, or status. The artist and the venue were ignorant of the social issue and the views of the complainant were undermined initially not because the club is 'casteist', but because the gravity of this issue was not properly understood. Calling for a venue shutdown is not a long-term solution. This wouldn't help in actually making a size-able difference. Coming together and highlighting the current situation of the caste discrimination would. Let's use this incident as a reason to unite, not divide.” © Facebook Manas Tripathy, Strategic Alliances-Live Events, Phoenix Live “Shutting the venue is not the solution, Piano Man Jazz Club made a genuine mistake which was not aimed at offending anyone and they are guilty about it. Everyone should support them, as it is the only Alternative/Non-Bollywood venues in New Delhi. They have supported some of the finest talents of our country and now it’s our time to support them.” Prachi Kapil, BandStand “All that Piano Man was trying to do was give a platform to a band that was doing something worth giving them a stage to perform for. We have artists in the industry who have weird, uncanny names and we understand that as freedom of speech. There really was and is never any sign of casteism connected to that. I just feel like it’s not at all cool about how this agenda has been built. And in any case, the government just needs a reason to curb freedom of speech, expression and creative freedom. While there is a provision under the law to support the venue, I personally don’t know what comes next, given our government and our law enforcements. I think it’s up to us—the people in the music community—to stand by the venue, the owners and support them completely.” © Facebook Girijashankar Vohra, Sound Engineer/Designer & Partner, Depot48 “We are not violent people but music is our weapon of choice. Depot promotes that very philosophy. Our closest friends are all activists so we cannot say we don't understand the impact of casteist slur. One also cannot ignore what some people wrote on social media. I think it's unfortunate how this unfolded and sadly wrong on many levels. We have to recognise our privileges and stop living in bubbles. We have to be the change we wish to see. This has been a huge learning for all of us though I wish we could've achieved all this peacefully. All of us are prone to making mistakes but if the learning from it makes us sensitive we are diligent learners. The eventual goal is to create an inclusive and safe space for everyone.”
  22. Breaking a long-standing world record, a 34-year-old man from Singapore had intercourse with 57 different women within a 24-hour period. He broke the record in Prague, the capital of Czech Republic, in an annual event run by a local brothel. The unnamed man told the reporters that he had been training hard (pun intended, maybe) for months and was really delighted to have broken the previous record, which stood at 55. “I’ve always been a bit of a *** addict, and when I learned that the brothel was having a world record attempt I knew I had to come and give it a go. I take it really seriously and train for it just like an athlete would prepare for a marathon. In some ways, it’s actually much harder than a lot of professional sports.” © Twitter He started his attempt at this world record at midnight, when he commenced intercourse with his first partner while officials looked on. Since he had to sleep with different girls for it to count, the brothel had to hire more girls to make sure he could beat the record. He was focused on his goal that by mid-day he had already slept with 29 girls, but after that he started getting cramps. Lucky for him, there was a physiotherapist present to give him a massage which helped him out a lot. © Twitter The participants weren’t allowed to take any prescribed medicine for an erection, for obvious reasons, and he even had to pass a test for being clean of any medicines beforehand. He did, however, use some natural remedies, but didn’t want to disclose them. One more rule was that each participant must ejaculate at least 5ml of semen, and to add on to the awkwardness, there were officials to actually measure the amount at the end of each session. The previous record was set by a porn actor back in 1983 as part of promotion for his new film. Over the years, many people tried to achieve this but failed, well until this legendary Singaporean came and conquered. But it did not come easy. Reportedly, he had to rush to the hospital right after.
  23. Prosecutions have continued under Thailand's new king Maha Vajiralongkorn, who took the throne in late 2016 after the death of his deeply revered father. BANGKOK: A Thai man was jailed for 35 years on Friday for Facebook posts deemed insulting to the royal family, a watchdog said, in one of the harshest sentences handed down for a crime that insulates Thailand´s ultra-rich monarchy from criticism. A Bangkok military court convicted the 34-year-old on ten counts of lese majeste for posting photos and videos of the royal family on a Facebook account that purported to belong to a different user. Wichai, whose last name was withheld to protect his relatives from ostracisation, was accused of using the account to slander a former friend, said iLaw, a group that tracks royal defamation cases. "The court punished him with seven years per count. Altogether he was given 70 years, but it was reduced in half because he confessed," said Yingcheep Atchanont from iLaw. Lese majeste cases are routinely shrouded in secrecy, with media forced to heavily self-censor the details to avoid violating the broadly-interpreted law. Reporters were barred from entering the military court where Wichai´s verdict was read. Later on Friday a criminal court sentenced another lese majeste suspect to 2.5 years in jail for uploading an audio clip from an underground political radio show that was deemed insulting to the monarchy. Use of the draconian law has surged under a royalist junta that grabbed power in 2014, with more than 100 people charged since the coup. Prosecutions have continued under Thailand´s new king Maha Vajiralongkorn, who took the throne in late 2016 after the death of his deeply revered father. Observers have been closely watching how the new king approaches the controversial law, which effectively blocks scrutiny of Thailand´s opaque and powerful monarchy. According to iLaw, Wichai initially denied the charges but later confessed after waiting for more than a year in jail for the court proceedings to begin. Lese majeste suspects are rarely acquitted or granted bail. The United Nations´ rights body has warned that Thailand´s widespread use of the law "may constitute crimes against humanity".
  24. ISLAMABAD: A man, identified as Malik Noor Awan, accosted Awami Muslim League leader Sheikh Rasheed outside the National Assembly Thursday morning claiming the politician owes him money. The incident occurred near Gate 1 of the Parliament House. The man kept insisting that Rasheed return his money and held the politicians hand forcefully. ?I will pay you very soon,? Rasheed assured the man, while trying to calm him down. ?You must promise me that you will pay up,? the man remarked. After the incident, Rasheed went into the Parliament. ?I will complain about this to the [National Assembly] speaker.? Later, Rasheed filed a case against Noor Awan at Secretariat Police Station. Awan alleged that Rasheed bought a car from him but has yet to pay him around Rs20 million for it. Speaking to the media, Awan said ?I am a very poor man and Rs20.2 million is a big amount. It?s my hard earned money.? He also claimed that I ran into Rasheed at the airport but he ignored him. ?He does not even attend my phone calls.? Addressing a press conference later, Rasheed said ?I have said before that parliament lacks security," said Rasheed, demanding the presiding officer to arrest the man. The politician alleged that the ruling party, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, is behind the incident. "If anything happens to me then they [PML-N] will be responsible for it," he added. Following the incident, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar met Rasheed inside Parliament. Nisar said that relevant measures will be taken upon the advice of the speaker. The person has been taken into custody, he added. On the issue, Opposition Leader Khursheed Shah remarked ?this is an important matter and it should be investigated.? This should be revealed how did the person enter the parliament, he said, and asked ?how did he get the permission to enter the parliament??
  25. In the last Premier League season, Manchester City probably witnessed the most influential transfer amongst all teams when shrewd tactician Pep Guardiola arrived at the Etihad. Tipped to make a mark early on, Guardiola was forced to come to terms with the EPL conditions and playing style as his side could only manage a third-place finish at the end of the season. While the lack of adequate defenders clearly hurt Guardiola's ambitions, it was a series of poor performances by their star goalkeeper Claudio Bravo that surely left the decorated manager red-faced. So much so that the former Barcelona goalie was restricted to the bench for the latter half of the season as Willy Caballero took charge of the City goal-post. But, with City releasing Caballero last week, Guardiola was left with little to choose from in the goalkeeping department. And, that's where Brazil's Ederson Santana de Moraes comes into play. Ederson speaks about why he joined Man City in his first interview with CityTV! Watch 📽 https://t.co/sVlSgc1h5g #WelcomeEderson pic.twitter.com/sgxy3ZCcF3 — Manchester City (@ManCity) June 8, 2017 With an aim to improve their performance this year, Guardiola was handed a 300-million-Euro purse to go shopping during the summer window. And, by the looks of it, Guardiola is making the most of the hefty purse. City, who have been on the tail of the 23-year-old Brazilian, finally got their man after agreeing to a deal with Benfica to bring Ederson to the Etihad. But, the young goalie comes with a hefty price - a price which is astronomical for a goalkeeper, even in the modern era of the sport. Headers, kicks, throws and of course... Saves 🤚⚽️🤚 Ederson at @SLBenfica! 📸 #WelcomeEderson https://t.co/lLwh26GLZF — Manchester City (@ManCity) June 8, 2017 At 35 million Euros, Man City have made Ederson the world's most expensive goalkeeper in the history of the sport, surpassing the 33 million Euros paid out by Juventus to sign Gianluigi Buffon from Parma. So why did City pay so much for a 23-year-old you probably didn't hear about before? Here's the answer. A Hard Worker © Reuters Despite being picked up by Benfica at the age of 16, Ederson's big European break took its time to come. The budding goalkeeper was allowed to leave for lowly Ribeirao after two years with the Primeira Liga's junior side. He earned his spurs, won a top-flight reprieve with Rio Ave and once again pricked Benfica's interest in 2015. After starting in Benfica's 'B' side, Ederson faced considerable challenges amid the presence of Julio Cesar in the main team. Cesar had been a revelation in 2015, earning a contract extension through to 2018, but when Ederson's chance came he took it with aplomb and since then, Cesar has performed understudy duties to the youngster at Benfica. More Than Just A Goalie © Reuters Apart from his goalkeeping skills, Ederson's overall distribution is what made him one of the highly sought after goalkeeper in the world. Whether it is his direct passes into opposition territory, his ability to start attacks quickly with direct throws, or a willingness to receive back-passes in tight spots, he boasts of them all in his armory. He put in a number of eye-catching performances last term, most notably in the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund, when he saved a penalty and made another five impressive saves. Such was his performance that it also drew praises from Jose Mourinho who said: "Goalkeepers are there to defend and save the team when circumstances require it. The kid Ederson did it". Ideal For Guardiola's Plans © Reuters Nobody knows better than Joe Hart how important a goalkeeper's skill with the ball at his feet is to Guardiola, and Ederson appears to have every box ticked on that score. He has often been spotted charging from his box, occasionally even beyond the last defender, to snuff out attacks and get his side going again. Not only does Ederson boast a fine range of passing, which can rival Bravo's assured footwork, he also has an incredible goal kick in his locker which could make direct contributions to City's attack, and perhaps revolutionise, in a certain sense, the way the Blues play. He once scored from his own box in his youth career and in one of his final games for Benfica, against Vitoria Guimaraes in May, Ederson launched the ball the best part of 100 metres without it touching the ground. After leaving his boot on Benfica's six-yard line, the ball did not hit the turf again until it dropped inches outside Vitoria's 18-yard box. Raul Jimenez ran onto it, flicked it past the goalkeeper and headed it into the net. Ederson became a firm favourite during his time at the Estadio da Luz and his ever-improving performances in the league and in Europe have ensured he's now recognised as one of the most promising goalkeepers in Europe. But, next season, the 23-year-old will embark on a new adventure, one which unexpectedly proved too much for Bravo - a veteran of Copa America finals and league title winner with Barcelona.
