  2. Researchers Neil Gandal, JT Hamrick, Tyler Moore, and Tali Oberman have written a fascinating paper on Bitcoin price manipulation. Entitled “Price Manipulation in the Bitcoin Ecosystem” and appearing in the recent issue of the Journal of Monetary Economics, the paper describes to what degree the Bitcoin ecosystem is controlled by bad actors. The authors report that most instances of price manipulation were possible simply because cryptocurrency markets were 'very thin' — meaning they had few buyers and sellers. The authors explain that despite the huge increase in capitalization these markets experienced, they remain very thin. Since the period of the study (2013), the number of cryptocurrencies increased from 80 up to 843 today, and the majority of markets remain thin and “subject to price manipulations”. © Twitter/ExQuanto Researchers examined Mt. Gox transactions over a ten-month period from February to November 2013, and found that approximately 600,000 bitcoins, valued at $188 million, were “acquired by agents who likely did not pay for the bitcoins.” The team found that a single account named “Markus,” which was missing location data, seemingly never paid transaction fees and paid random prices for the bitcoins. "Markus likely did not pay for the bitcoins he acquired; rather, his account was fraudulently credited with claimed bitcoins that almost certainly were not backed by real coins,” the researchers wrote. The Markus account bought a total of 335,898 bitcoins, worth $76 million, over the course of 225 days. It gets weirder. Another 49 accounts that were also missing important data, grouped by the researchers under the name “Willy Bot” for their habit of purchasing exactly $2.5 million in bitcoins before stopping, bought 268,132 bitcoins over the course of 65 days. © YouTube In other words, what he did is create an economic bubble, artificially inflating the cost of a certain commodity and turning a huge profit by selling it. Eventually, the prices soar too high for anyone to want to buy — and the ones who purchased it last have to foot the bill and, effectively, pay for the profits of those before them. The whole market became a pyramid scheme. In other words, it's important to keep in mind that the largely unregulated world of cryptocurrencies is potentially vulnerable to market manipulation. If someone wants to pump and dump, well, they probably can. While decentralization is supposed to replace regulation it's clear that there is still a way to go before it can be truly taken seriously. “As mainstream finance invests in cryptocurrency assets and as countries take steps toward legalizing bitcoin as a payment system (as Japan did in April 2017), it is important to understand how susceptible cryptocurrency markets are to manipulation. Our study provides the first examination,” write the researchers. Source: Journal of Monetary Economics
  3. US Senator Jeff Flake departs the Senate floor after delivering a speech in which he was critical of his fellow Republicans at the US Capitol, Washington, US, January 17, 2018. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst WASHINGTON: Republican US Senator Jeff Flake castigated President Donald Trump on Wednesday for his attacks on the media, saying Trump had embraced the despotic language of former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin and inspired modern-day authoritarians. In a rare intra-party rebuke from the Senate floor, Flake said Trump?s portrayal of the press as ?the enemy of the people? and repeated White House references to ?fake news? and ?alternative facts? had spurred copycats such as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Stalin ? who led the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until he died in 1953 ? used the phrase ?enemy of the people? to describe those he wanted annihilated. Trump?s use of the phrase ?should be a source of great shame,? Flake said. 55-year-old Flake ? an Arizona conservative who has frequently feuded with Trump ? described himself in October as out of step with his party and said would not seek re-election. His term ends in January 2019. ?Not only has the past year seen an American president borrow despotic language to refer to the free press, but it seems he has in turn inspired dictators and authoritarians... This is reprehensible,? Flake said. Responding to Flake?s speech, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the senator was an attention-seeker. ?He?s not criticizing the president because he?s against oppression,? Sanders said at a White House briefing. ?He?s criticizing the president because he has terrible poll numbers and he is, I think, looking for some attention.? Trump?s attacks on the media in response to critical stories about him have been a staple of his Twitter feed and he tweeted in February 2017 that ?The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people!? That same month, Assad was quoted as dismissing charges of human rights violations at a military prison as ?fake news.? In the Philippines, Duterte lashed out on Tuesday at a ?fake news outlet? known for challenging his government. Noting that Trump had said he will give out awards for ?the most corrupt and dishonest? media, Flake said, ?It beggars belief that an American president would engage in such a spectacle.? Trump wrote on Twitter on Wednesday evening that his ?FAKE NEWS winners? could be found on the Republican National Committee website. The link ? which was broken for 90 minutes ? listed 10 stories by news outlets. An 11th item was coverage of ?RUSSIA COLLUSION!? that Trump called a ?hoax?. In a second Twitter post, Trump said there were also ?many great reporters I respect?. Criticism from McCain John McCain ? the other Republican senator from Arizona ? aimed similar criticism at Trump on Wednesday in an opinion piece in the Washington Post. ?Trump continues his unrelenting attacks on the integrity of American journalists and news outlets,? wrote McCain, who is fighting aggressive brain cancer. ?This has provided cover for repressive regimes to follow suit.? In his clashes with Trump, Flake has called his behaviour sometimes ?reckless, outrageous and undignified? and criticized the president in a book that made the New York Times best-seller list last year. On Twitter, Trump has referred to the senator as ?Flake(y)? and said Flake dropped his re-election bid because he was doomed to lose. He also has called Flake ineffective, ?toxic?, and weak on issues such as crime and border security. Still, Flake has voted for Trump?s policies. He supported Republican tax overhaul legislation last month and voted for unsuccessful bills to repeal and replace Obamacare, both efforts backed by Trump. Flake laid some ?official untruths? at Trump?s door on Wednesday and said the most vexing was his labelling as a ?hoax? the investigation of alleged ties between Russia and Trump?s presidential campaign. ?To call the Russia matter a ?hoax? ... is a falsehood,? Flake said. ?We know that the attacks orchestrated by the Russian government during the election were real and constitute a grave threat,? he said. ?It is in the interest of every American to get to the bottom of this matter.?
  4. With her phenomenal and exceptional performances in movies like 'Baby', 'Pink' and 'Naam Shabana'; Taapsee Pannu has proven time and again that she is the dark horse of Bollywood and one of the finest and most versatile actresses of this time. Be it action movies, beating the sh*t out of bad guys, tear jerking emotional scenes or tickling your funny bones; Taapsee has proved her mettle with every role and movie. © Pooja Entertainment After showing us her goofy and funny side in 'Judwaa 2', Taapsee is back in action with another romantic comedy titled 'Dil Juunglee' and if the name does not excite you enough, this trailer will surely intrigue you to look forward to this movie. Taapsee will be seen opposite 'Hawaa Hawaai' star Saqib Saleem. © Pooja Entertainment Taapsee plays Koroli Nair, an English counselor, while Saqib plays Sumit Uppal, a gym trainer and an aspiring poet. Honestly, it will take you two or three more attempts, before you can inch closer to deciphering the gist of the movie; but this wild and confusing trailer and the crazy adventures the two go through, is enough to get us excited. Saqib and Taapsee are then joined by their friends, played by Abhilash Thapliyal, Permanent Roommates' Nidhi Singh, and Girliyapa's Sristi Srivastava. Taapsee's character has recently gone through a crushing heart break and despite being suggested by her friends to not fall for Saqib, she falls in love with him. Years later, Taapsee has now turned into a bombshell and is dating a rich guy, while Saqib has found a partner too. What happens when the two cross paths with each other after coming so far along in their lives, weaves the rest of the plot. 'Dil Juunglee' is produced by Jackky Bhagnani and directed by Aleya Sen and is expected to release on February 16.
  5. There is absolutely no one in this world who has any doubts on Virat Kohli's talent as a seasoned cricketer, husband, captain et al, but there is also this one tiny problem of his that is almost impossible to not see- the man has got no chill. In case you have zero interest in cricket or Test matches, you might not have heard that Kohli was caught by the stump mic, using the choicest of Hindi swear words on the field during the recent Test. During the ongoing Test series in South Africa, Kohli was caught saying “Shaam tak khelenge, inki g**d phat jayegi.” Stump mic catches Virat abusing 'Sham tak khelenge inki Gaand phat jayegi' #SAvIND #SAvsIND pic.twitter.com/8q3crsmZuF — Khurram Siddiquee (@iamkhurram12) January 14, 2018 After this video surfaced online, Twitter had one hell of a time as the development was pretty funny given Kohli's nature. And now, Virat has done it again. During the second Test, when Ravichandran Ashwin was bowling, Kohli tried to 'motivate' him by saying, “G**nd fatti hai b******od, dalo ek jagah pe, chalo Ash.” You can hear him saying the words in this video: And once again, the internet lost its sanity thanks to the Indian skipper: 1. People Are So Impressed 2. Bohat Swag Hai! 3. Dilli Ka Launda Forever 4. Hum Bhi Yehi Soch Rahe Hain 5. Yeh Na Maanta 6. Ji Bilkul! 7. “Guruwani” 8. Seems Like It Looks like his fans don't mind this at all and in fact, enjoy Kohli being his usual self. As for the authorities, hmmm…. we aren't so sure.
  6. Even in the golden age of start-ups and relaxed corporate dressing ethics, the power of a well-cut suit is horribly unparalleled. One, because if you're at a pitch presentation and dressed in casuals, there's a chance that a certain contemporary might spill his coffee in disappointment. Or, just laugh at your naive (read: dumb) professional behaviour. Number two, there's a reason why suits are known as a boardroom rule, you see—they're literally that imperative to a small/large scale business setting. But, while single-breasted suits are the most common sights at work, double-breasted variants are underestimated with ease (or in most cases, men are not even aware of their existence in the world). But as they say, celebrity endorsements solve a lot of problems, let's dig deep into Diljit Dosanjh's recent outfit: ©Viral Bhayani A few may ask, "How is a double-breasted suit a more logical move than a single-breasted one?" The answer is easy: Everything's logical, if you're eyeing the top slot during appraisal month. However, while we agree that the double-breasted suit looks a lot more formal (as opposed to the singles), that's exactly how you'll earn brownie points, right? That extra padding on a double-breasted suit is exactly what'll do the trick for you. ©Viral Bhayani And as seen on Diljit Dosanjh here, he's maintained a very relaxed feel with the shirt (by leaving two-buttons-open), but stuck to dress shoes to maintain the ensemble's sanctity. A great hack for guys who're eyeing a lot of polish, but without that added seriousness involved. But, keep your cyclonic chest hair in check. And remember, a man cleavage won't land you that business deal (in fact, you'll lose it). ©Viral Bhayani And now, how do you take it from season to season (if you're not the man of all-over monotone)? Through the chills, go in for wool trousers or dark denim to keep you warm (depending on your corporate ethics). And in the summer, give chinos or trousers in natural fabrics a try. To sum it up: If there's a raffle ticket for transitions from a cubicle to a corner office, it's probably a double-breasted suit.
  7. 2018 has been off to a great start for Ram Gopal Varma. He has managed to be in the news over the last few weeks thanks to his upcoming project with adult star Mia Malkova. The director-producer has shot 'something' with her titled 'God, *** and Truth'. We are calling it 'something' because of his own words, “GOD, *** and TRUTH is neither a film, nor a short film nor a series ...it's about Mia Malkova speaking about *** and how much it means to her. I, both as a person and as a film maker very strongly believe in the underlying depth of what GOD ,*** and TRUTH truly represents.” Indian film maker Ram Gopal Varma shot a video with me in Europe titled GOD , *** and TRUTH I will be the 2nd adult star after @SunnyLeone to be shot by an Indian feature film maker @Rgvzoomin pic.twitter.com/0lfaipKhAA — Mia Malkova (@MiaMalkova) January 11, 2018 Only yesterday, he released the trailer of this project and as expected, it is full of erotic visuals. But what didn't make a lot of sense was the fact that RGV threw in some philosophy along with those visuals. And as for those quotes, umm…what exactly was he thinking? While we were pondering over this big question, Twitter went ballistic with their opinions after watching the trailer. 1. “Sooooo Much Nonsense” It takes a special talent to fit so much pretension & sooooo much nonsense in just 3 minutes. ð Trailer for Ram Gopal Varma's 'God, *** & Truth' #GSTforShort #NSFWishhttps://t.co/zc5jeZiHOv — Sahil Rizwan (@SahilRiz) January 16, 2018 2. Quite A Fall To have seen Ram Gopal Varma at his peak. To see his work now. From the sublime to the senseless. Sigh. — Naomi Datta (@nowme_datta) January 16, 2018 3. Such 'Costumes', Much Wow Salute to costume designer of @MiaMalkova in #GodSexTruth.@RGVzoomin — #nReddy (@aSouthIndian) January 16, 2018 4. People Are Not Happy With The Quotes. Haha.Dude, cut the crap. #GodSexTruth is very normal & dumb trailer. Just using other people's quotes in the trailer & A video editor will do it better than this. Kamasutra & other films have an excellent depiction of girl's beauty & ***.. — Vendetta (@srini48) January 16, 2018 5. Such A Disappointment For Some. #GodSexTruth is the first erotic video in my life that doesn't gave me an erection — Sai Rajesh (@sairazesh) January 16, 2018 6. Ouch! He's an unmitigated disaster now. Unwatchable. — Shantanu (@shantanub) January 16, 2018 7. SHOOK Remember my prediction from 2010? This is what I said: "I won't be surprised if Ramu announces in the near future the first mainstream Porn film from India. Don't be surprised and shocked, remember, it is inevitable." My Nov 2010 blogpost: https://t.co/caBHrGuHqj#GodSexTruth https://t.co/S7iRC4Rxee — Kartik Dayanand (@KartikDayanand) January 11, 2018 8. Whatever Happened To Good Cinema! The man who gave us #Satya now coming with #GodSexTruth there must be some plasmid defects inside you @RGVzoomin otherwise you were such genious once. — Anand K Dubey (@DUBEYDELHI) January 12, 2018 9. Never Thought Of It This Way The conceptualization of #GodSexTruth is absolutely pointless, if it is driven by Free ***. Rather than giving @MiaMalkova's real perspective of Adult Industry, making her say 'heaven' is foolish & may be even humiliating to her real life situations. @RGVzoomin — sri sri mahendra (@srisrimahendra) January 16, 2018 10. Sums Up The Popular Opinion I feel so sorry for @RGVzoomin. He has gone down hill in his career from producing Blockbuster Movies to Porn Movies #GodSexTruth. I will be very surprised if he doesn't react to this!!! All the very NOT Best!!! I need a Sarcastic reply plz!!! ððð — Varun (@varun2c) January 15, 2018 Let's hope all these doubts and questions would be cleared with the release of the video on 26th January on Mia's Vimeo channel.

For those who don't know, she is the second woman defence minister that our country has had, after Indira Gandhi. © Twitter And today, it is yet another proud moment, not just for her but for every Indian as well. By going on a sortie in a Sukhoi- 30 fighter jet, she became the first Indian woman defence minister to do so. © Twitter Before the take off, Sitharaman met the air warriors of the Indian Air Force at the Air Force Station Jodhpur.

Just like us, the internet was left beaming with pride after these pictures and videos were posted by the official twitter handle of 'Raksha Mantri'. 1. This Is Awesome Indeed.

  11. Cheteshwar Pujara as a batsman is a throwback to the eras gone by, not so much in technique - he is unusually bottom-handed for someone who pays his bills through Test cricket - as in temperament. He doesn't tire of scoring runs irrespective of the opposition or venue and his fitness is more about what is required for batting for long periods as opposed to bulging biceps carrying flamboyant tattoos. At a time when India were looking to fill the void created by Rahul Dravid's retirement, Pujara stepped up to the task, slamming centuries against all three touring sides - New Zealand, England and Australia - and became the joint-fastest Indian to 1000 Test runs in 2011. © Reuters Since then, the rock-solid Pujara has been seen as the backbone of Indian cricket team's batting order in the longest version of the game. And, when India began their gruelling tour of South Africa, it's needless to say that the right-hander was expected to carry the weight of Indian batting in the three-match Test series. But, forget about carrying the weight of his team, Pujara - for all his patience and skill - has undeniably struggled alongside his teammates to carry his own innings. In India's 72-run loss in the first Test, Pujara was only managed to score 30 runs across two innings. © AP If that wasn't enough, Pujara was sent back into the hut after being run-out without even scoring in the first innings of the second Test at the SuperSport Park In Centurion. The second innings proved no different, as the Indian batting mainstay once again got run-out at a lowly-score of 19 runs. To make matters worse, the Indian batsman who has known nothing but to score big runs also notched up an infamous record. On the fifth day's play, Pujara's dismissal made him the first Indian player to get run-out twice in a Test match. Sadly, he also became the first player to be run-out twice in a Test in the 21st century. © AP The last cricketer to have achieved this ridiculous record was former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming who was run-out twice against Zimbabwe during the Wellington Test in December, 2000. That's not the kind of record anyone would like to claim, let alone a great batting genius like Pujara but the fact that he ended up achieving such feat sums up India's miserable outing in the Rainbow Nation.

  12. Name- Akash Saxena I have always been athletic. I was a sportsman back in school and fairly active even when I undertook an infamous corporate job. However, when we launched GetSetGo Fitness, our own online Fitness company, things took a turn for worse. Like every person who uses work as an excuse to sideline fitness, I took the liberty to tell myself – you can't do much about it, buddy. There's no time! Work was hectic indeed. The whole team was grinding. I stayed glued to my chair, being the CTO myself, staring into my laptop at least 15 hours a day was something normal for me. I had started smoking again. Late night strategic discussions that stretched up to 4:00 or 5:00 AM in the morning had become commonplace. © Akash Saxena Then came the moment of realization! On one of the rare afternoons when I could squeeze in some time for a quick shower, I was shocked. I turned back after drawing my clothes from my closet and there was the most dreaded sight – that belly sticking out of my torso. Now, I have been really skinny in the past but never ever have I been skinny-fat. Yet, here I was. While I was quite disturbed, I was not really scared. Those who know me will testify that I have a pretty strong will. I knew if I got back to the grind, I would lock it down. But that meant spending hours in the gym running on the treadmill, lifting some weights, cutting outside food and eating clean, home-cooked food. On an average day, this would have been a breeze. But right now, I could not afford to dedicate 3-4 hours a day to fitness. I shared my dilemma with my wife – Shraddha. She is the CEO and a coach at GetSetGo Fitness. Surprisingly, the solution was the pitch that she presents to her clients. She asked me to make a lifestyle change and not see this as a crash course. She told me that a diet should be sustainable and customized to my lifestyle, not only to a goal. I was like – What, really? Save this for your clients. I want a quick fix, lady. But as we all know – wives are always right! I followed her guidance and here I am. © Akash Saxena This is precisely what she prescribed. She made it really simple for me: • A custom 3 days a week work out that lasted 40 minutes • A diet plan that was flexible enough to fit into my regime and had enough calories to get me going through a hectic day • A list of healthy restaurant food, because cooking at home was not always an option I stuck to it like a snail would to the edge of the blade. Being the classic ectomorph that I am, results followed sooner than I expected. I did not make any significant muscle gain, but within 2 months, I finally morphed into a shape that I loved! And since then, I have stayed away from the yo-yo approach.
  13. After missing out in the first Test, Virat Kohli silenced his critics and carried the baton for his side in the first innings with a brilliant knock of 153 runs during the second Test against South Africa in Centurion. With the Indian cricket team desperately seeking a win to level the three-match series, their batting unit - which has failed miserably so far - was expected to rise to the occasion. However, what eventually unfolded in the second innings was far from the kind of performance you'd expect from the world no. 1 Test side. Chasing a target of 287 runs, India once again had a forgetful start to their innings, losing both their openers - Murali Vijay (9) and KL Rahul (4) - for a mere 16 runs. © Reuters And, the onus was once again on the Indian captain who walked out in the middle to partner Cheteshwar Pujara in the final session of Day 4. Given Kohli's performance in the first innings, the Delhi lad was expected to steady the chase for the visitors and see through the day ensuring India doesn't lose any more wickets. But, a rampant South African debutant had other plans - the ones that were going to leave Kohli, Team India and their fans absolutely devastated. On the final delivery of the 16th over, Lungi Ngidi got one to nip back that trapped Kohli right in front of the stumps. The Indian skipper's decision to go for a review went in vain as he was hit in line. © AP If Kohli's dismissal wasn't enough, the animated send-off from Ngidi baffled the Indian captain. As the South African players waited for the decision to be made by the third umpire, Kohli had started walking back. When the giant screen at the venue showed the replay and confirmed the on-field decision would stay, Ngidi could not hide his joy.

He was over the moon to have got the big wicket of Kohli. However, the Indian batsman, as he slowly walked back to the pavilion did not like the youngster's way of giving him a send-off. He turned back and uttered few words under the helmet and carried on to the dressing room. LUNGI NGIDI CELEBRATING IN FRONT OF A FURIOUS KOHLI! Ngidi providing World Peace through cricket. Give him a Nobel Peace Prize — Simmi Areff (@simmiareff) January 16, 2018 Clearly, the Indian batting mainstay wasn't happy. But, going by Kohli's exploits in the series where he himself was seen giving send-offs to the South African batsmen, it was arguably one of those rare moments when the aggressive Indian cricketer got the taste of his own medicine - only this time by a rookie who was later seen blushing on camera.

  14. They say you can not buy happiness with money but are wealthy people sad and unhappy? It sure does not look like it. These super rich entrepreneurs sure tried their hand at buying happiness with their enormous wealth. And, this essentially proves that money is not the only source of happiness but happiness is surely a byproduct of money. These billionaire founders look for a reason to spend their money on the things they personally feel strongly about. Here is a list of the most outrageous things that have ever been bought by the billionaires to check an item off of their wishlist. 1. Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk bought James Bond's submarine car in 2013 for $866,000. © ecomento This modified Lotus Esprit was featured in the 10th James Bond movie (1977) 'The Spy Who Loved Me' where it could be converted to a submarine. Now, Elon is working on creating a modern version of this classic so that we, the public, can actually experience. Of course, only if Elon keeps it affordable enough for us to buy one. 2.

Also, if you wish to spend a night over in that heaven you will need to spend at least $1,350 a night! 4.

He has now further expanded his collection to other types of military vehicles like tanks and trucks as well.

  15. The iconic character of Batman has been immortalized by a lot of talented actors over the years, actually 9 to be exact. The man who logged the most hours in the Batcave was, of course, Adam West. After facing a lot of backlash, Michael Keaton proved everyone wrong with his portrayal of the character. And obviously, Christian Bale is a fan favourite. The current Batman is Ben Affleck, as everyone knows. But, if rumours are to be believed, we're getting a new Batman sooner than we expected. Any guesses as to who it is? It's Jake Gyllenhaal! After 'Justice League', a lot of changes have been happening behind-the-scenes in the world of the DCEU, and the main one being some alterations to the character of Batman. Along with that, rumours of Jake Gyllenhaal taking over as Bruce Wayne for Matt Reeves' solo Batman movie have surfaced again. Initially, Ben Affleck's casting as Batman in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' received a lot of backlash from the fans, because let's be real, that was quite a downgrade after Christian Bale. Even though Warner Bros. apparently went to great lengths to keep Affleck around in the past, the studio has “soured” on him now, reportedly. Moreover, the studio also has Jake Gyllenhaal waiting in the wings as a possible replacement, apparently. However, these are all rumours right now. Ben has to at least finish his contract for now and only then can Jake come on board. But, this news lines up with the rumours about a possible recasting taking place, so it seems feasible enough to take seriously. And, it turns out that people are actually excited about this possibility.

  16. If we have to name one thing we love about Milind Soman, without a doubt it is obsession with fitness even at the age of 53. Not only is he an avid sports lover, he is also a running enthusiast. Time and again, we have seen him running in marathons with way more stamina than a teenager. No wonder people across the country look up to him. While all this motivates us to get our asses off the bed and finally take care of our health, Milind's latest New Year resolution has left Twitter feeling exhausted. He took to his Twitter to announce that he would now be undertaking 7-hour-long marathons. Every month? No. Every week? Please! He will be doing this EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

  17. Kapil Mohan, the creator of Old Monk is not with us anymore, but what stays behind is the legendary rum he gave us, which was probably our first and the best companion when we entered adulthood. Old Monk is not just a mere drink, it's a religion and if there was ever a cult to be made for Old Monk, I will run as the President for that group. I am sure just like me, all those who swear by this drink will unanimously agree that for us Old Monk is the only rum in the world, theirs is no other brand and there never will be any. © Facebook Be it celebrating the good things that happened to us, the friends we made in college over a glass of rum, or dealing with our first heartbreak; Old Monk has all the rights to proudly take credit for all the major milestones in our lives. Paying a tribute to one of the best things ever made in the world, here's a short film that will take you to a walk down the memory lane to reminisce the good ol' memories and times you all have shared with Old Monk. © switch off films Sanjay Mishra is one of the finest actors in Bollywood and when he takes up any movie, you know it's going to be special and when you throw in a bottle of Old Monk into the same frame, you know that you are signing up for something incredible and emotional. And this short film titled 'Monk' does exactly that, it taps into all those memories and emotions you share with your friends and leaves you teary-eyed by the end of the film. Produced by Switch Off Films, this short film also stars Jeetu Shastri as the friend who Mishra shares his drink with. As we enjoy the duo's friendly banter and how they recollect all the crazy things they did in the past, by the end of it we realize that he was drinking all alone while remembering his close friend. Honestly, there could not have been a better tribute to acknowledge the spirit of Old Monk and the long lasting friendships it has helped weave. So go ahead and tag your friends to let them know how much you love them and how dearly you miss those Old Monk sessions you had with them.
  18. Dyed in the wool: Not happy to see ewe: A stubborn farmer is battling the US military over a flock of sheep near a military base in southern Romania. Photo: AFP file One of the most important strategic sites in Europe for the US military has come under threat from a rather unexpected enemy: a flock of sheep. It is their random meanderings near the Deveselu base in southern Romania that has triggered an unusual power struggle between US commanders and a stubborn local sheep farmer. Dumitru Bleja's 250 or so sheep "grazed without problem" in the area for years before the Americans arrived at the end of 2013, says Alexandru Damian, mayor of Stoenesti, a community on the vast Danubian plain 40 kilometres (25 miles) north of the border with Bulgaria. "Sheep are not like people. They don't respect the rules, they go into areas where security sensors are active, touching the fence and setting off alarm systems," he says. Photo: AFP But this is unthinkable for the US military, which chose the site as one of its two anti-missile defence systems to help defend NATO members against the threat of short and medium-range ballistic missiles, particularly from the Middle East. A security threat? In 2014, the top US official at Deveselu informed Romania's defence ministry that having a shelter for sheep some 10 metres (yards) from the fence "undermines the minimum security requirements and is incompatible" with the running of the base. The complaint has spiralled into a more than three-year legal saga between the Romanian defence ministry and the farmer that has now reached the country's highest court, which on Wednesday will rule on one of the aspects of the case. Photo: AFP According to the mayor, Bleja had in 2007 bought nearly a hectare (2.5 acres) of land adjacent to the area later taken over by the base, and a year later, he built a shelter for his sheep ? well before work began on the military site. But, the farmer never applied for planning permission to build, he says. With the ministry pursuing him for building without a permit, the shepherd has responded with his own claims ? for damages of up to 18,000 euros ($22,000) in the event of the demolition of his 132-square-metre (1,420-square-foot) sheep pen. For the mayor, the situation is "embarrassing". "We have signed a treaty with the Americans and we should respect it," he says. Contacted by AFP, the US military declined to comment "on a dispute between the Romanian government and a private citizen". "We sincerely appreciate the strong and continued partnership between the United States and our Romanian allies that allows for continued operations at Naval Support Facility Deveselu," said Lieutenant Tim Pietrack, spokesman for the US Navy's Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia region. The base at Deveselu, which is part of the NATO missile shield and was built at an estimated cost of $800 million, was inaugurated in May 2016, infuriating Russia which views it as a security threat right on its doorstep. 'Exaggerated' demands In Stoenesti, residents are largely reluctant to talk "to avoid getting into trouble" with Bleja, but some believe that he is the one at fault. "Even if we're talking about building a road, people should just accept the conditions laid out" by the authorities responsible for expropriations, said one bar owner. "You can't just dig in your heels and do things of your own accord. The landowner must reach an agreement with the military and with the local authorities," said a 69-year-old retiree, Nicoleta Nacu. "And the damages he is asking for are exaggerated because after all, the sheep pen is not all that big." One local councillor even accused the farmer of buying the land and building the shelter there "on purpose, to be able to demand significant compensation from the Americans." But the idea is dismissed out of hand by Bleja's lawyer Serban Dinu. "Out of the question," he says. "Back in 2007, nobody knew that Deveselu would be chosen" as the site for a US base, he told AFP. Ahead of Wednesday's verdict, the farmer ? who declined to be interviewed ? has gone with his sheep to his hometown of Caracal, which lies 15 km west of Stoenesti.

Aziz was accused by a young photographer identified as Grace in a story published by the website Babe. In the interview, Grace accused Ansari of sexual assault and ignoring her verbal and non-verbal clues after they arrived at his apartment. Aziz apologized to Grace the next morning after learning of her trauma the night before, replying, “Clearly, I misread things in the moment and I'm truly sorry.” Most men don't understand the power of desire, especially when it's the result of a chance sexual encounter. Every bit of sanity goes out the window when the guy involved in that sexual encounter is a celebrity and the girl is a charmed fan looking for the virtues of the character he's played on screen. And so, Aziz Ansari's behaviour on the date with Grace falls under that realm. Most social reactions to the story say that Aziz Ansari is no Harvey Weinstein even though both cases reinforce the culture of sexual exploitation, irrespective of whether it amounts to abuse and harassment or not. It is here that we find ourselves at the crossroads of sexual liberties we've often enjoyed and what it means for how we (men), understand consent. We've been taught to pursue the woman we like and keep at it no matter what, to never give up unless she agrees to be courted. It is this culture that instills the sense of entitlement in us and it's the same culture that is responsible for the kind of 'chivalry' some women drool over. There's a need for an overhaul because most of us, like Aziz, do not know how to handle and live in a culture that de-normalizes forced intimacy. Most of us won't acknowledge it publicly but they know exactly what Grace means when she compared the sexual encounter in the apartment to a football play. “But the main thing was that he wouldn't let her move away from him. She compared the path they cut across his apartment to a football play. “It was 30 minutes of me getting up and moving and him following and sticking his fingers down my throat again. It was really repetitive. It felt like a fucking game.” In short, Aziz just couldn't understand why this girl he took to a date wasn't actually going for it even though they had performed oral *** and that's the dilemma that's polarized the discussion around the issue on social media. In an environment that demands more freedom for women to have a say in their sexual desires, we must understand one thing first; that everyone has the right to say yes to one thing and no to another. If a woman agrees to make out, it does not necessarily give us the license for ***. In fact, if at any point during a sexual encounter she isn't comfortable, it has to stop. It cannot be emphasised enough that it's only consensual when it's enthusiastic and not regretful. The problem in Aziz's case is the lack of the basic understanding of the word 'No'. What everyone across the board seems to agree on and demand is the recalibration of our ideas related to consent because if she feels violated, it's a no; if she feels pressured, it's a no; if you think you're getting mixed signals, it's a no; if she politely asks to take it slow, it's a definite no. But this still doesn't resolve the issue because what happens when a girl refuses to go for it 'in the moment'? Can women expect us to be respectful of their wishes? Or should we just try and go for it even though they might not actually want it because that's 'okay'? Is goading your date into *** knowing fully well that it's against her wish, a sign of a bad date or abuse? These are just some of the issues that need to be discussed if we are going to tarnish every Aziz with the Weinstein paint. Aziz exhibited all the traits of a typical entitled man and Grace found herself unable to do anything about it leading up to the eventual goodbye even though she clearly had the freedom to say no. But with so many conventions related to dating and *** being questioned since the #MeToo movement started, it's really difficult to distinguish between sexual assault and sexual coercion. This particular case, however, warrants a deeper understanding of consent by men and a stronger will to say stand up and say no by women. Only if this is taken care of will we see some headway in the modern feminist movement.
  20. Good news! We've taken Invision Community's Blog app by the scruff of the neck and dragged it into 2018! There has been a growing trend for imagery to play a very important part of a blog entry. This update reflects that. Introducing Grid View We have added a new view that shows your blog entries as cards with space for a cover photo. We've very visual creatures, and a good photograph can entice readers into your blogs to read more. As you would expect, you can disable this mode from the Admin CP for purists that prefer the traditional list format. For those who's sense of adventure runs deep, the new grid mode allows you to show a list of latest blog entries as the blog home page. This puts valuable and engaging content right in front of your audience. This list view persists when you view a blog's entries giving a consistent feel. Viewing an entry We've given the blog entry page a little make-over by featuring the cover photo above the content. The slimmed down blog details bar allows your audience to focus on the content. Default Cover Photos You may have spotted that entries without a cover photo have a rather fetching geometric pattern in different colors. This is a new micro-feature of Invision Community 4.3. Currently, if you do not have a cover photo on a blog, profile or event, the bar is a rather sad shade of black. The new default cover photo feature makes it much more cheerful. Here's what a profile looks like. Much better. Here's a few technical details for those that love to know all the things. The grid view feature can be turned off in the ACP (but doing so will make me very sad) You can choose the default home page view: Latest Entries or List of Blogs. You can still view a list of blogs when you're on the latest entries page. This choice is stored in a little cookie (GDPR friendly, it doesn't contain any identifying data) so navigating back gets you the last view you chose. Let us know what you think! We love it, and hope you do too.
  21. You're never too cool to eat "bhutta" during the monsoon and there will come a time when you'll see it being roasted on the roadside, to which you'll instinctively roll your car window down and garishly yell at the vendor to have a freshly masala-d one sent to you. Should we put a spoke in your wheel though? Did you know that if you were driving the GAC Enverge, you'll probably be forced to skip the "bhutta" unless you decided to get out of the car and get it yourself-- it looks like you can't roll down the car windows in the Chinese automaker's ridiculous concept! How will you ever ash your cigarette outside the car, waiting for an epiphany wave to wash over you while listening to "Bittersweet Symphony". Welcome to the future, it looks bleak: boo fricken' hoo, no window roll downs for you! © AP It appears that the car windows have VR screens in-built for infotainment. Does that mean you'll probably not even see the "butta"? If you have the screens on? Probably. Bummer. Mind you, the car is a beauty queen with a shiny disposition and a body so rounded that Beyonce would suffer a bruised ego! The head and tail lamps are what could give the city lights at Madison Square, a run for their money. That's what will attract you to it, in the first place. Is giving up bhutta a small price to pay for this piece of art? Probably not. © AP Car windows aside, the car in itself may be a little "meh", even if in its concept stages. It's a crossover in a time of clear classifications-- either a sedan or an SUV for you, not many appreciate the middle. We love the dihedral doors and the snazzy air intakes but that's not enough to make it user compatible! © AP Now, look at the dash, for instance-- minimal, in a world where there is an information overload, and the acid green glow on it is definitely not its most charming feature. The dodgy looking rectangular steering is not enough to redeem the poorly done interiors, either. What about the powertrain? It's a current-arian, alright, an all-electric vehicle capable of doing nearly 600km on a full charge. But, the Chinese automakers threw in some fancy engineering by giving it a fast charge range of up to 385km in merely 10 minutes. That is something you could give up the "bhutta" for, if green energy is what you swear by. © AP Could you challenge someone to a quick straight line in the vehicle? Can't say, but we'll know in the latter half of 2019 because that's when the brand claims it will make its first deliveries. Ok GAC, we'll put the "bhutta" dilemma aside and wait for the Enverge production variant to make it worth the sacrifice (if we sacrifice it, that is) Just check out the reveal:
  22. “So how long did you stick to your New Year resolution?” is a common question we hear during this time of the year and it hurts, doesn't it? Most people have given up on making them altogether. The rest don't stick with them for too long because they've been led to believe that failure is inevitable. This is unfortunate because the idea of a New Year's resolution, albeit shrouded in pessimism, is a positive one wherein we recognize the need for self-improvement. Instead, the fault lies in our approach and the solution lies in Kaizen. Kaizen, which is Japanese for “change for better”. © Thinkstock/Getty Images What Is Kaizen? Kaizen is a Japanese business philosophy that promotes “continual improvement” as the mindset to achieve long-term goals. It is accurately captured in the following saying by Lao Tzu, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” It encourages the practitioner to take small steps in the right direction every day, regardless of the magnitude of the task at hand. Taking small, slow steps may sound like an impractical, lazy or wasteful method but how many times have you paid for a gym membership, only to abandon it in a couple of weeks? A gym membership is a huge commitment – a big step – and gym owners are not even thankful when they receive your unwise charitable donation. Instead, Kaizen advocates that you start going for a 10-minute brisk walk every day for a couple of weeks and then start gradually adding a portion of salad to your meals and then, once you've trained your brain to be a bit more disciplined, you purchase the gym membership. This gradual build-up to a steady program is the exact opposite of the usual pattern. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Getting Better At Getting Better Clearly, this is not the way to build a six pack in six days because the essence of Kaizen is that setting goals like “six pack in six days” is a bad idea. Kaizen is more of a mindset, less of a productivity tool. It's not result-based, it's process-based. For example, it will not help if you just hit deadlines. Trust me, I've tried and the MensXP editor wasn't very happy about it! Nevertheless, it can be used to review the process of working towards hitting a deadline so that next time, I can make a small positive change to my writing process and improve. When practicing Kaizen, it's never about the final result because there's always room for improvement regardless of success or failure. Kaizen is a journey, not a destination. In fact, Kaizen advocates for continuously upgrading your destination as you get better. Why Does It Work? Based on evolution, we have three brains although Bollywood makes a strong case for us having none. These are the cortex, the mammalian brain and the reptilian brain. The cortex is the part that makes humans unique – civilization, music, creativity, all reside in the cortex. The mammalian mid-brain has the amygdala which controls the fight-or-flight response. When faced with an imminent threat, the body is prepared to act reflexively which leads the thinking part – the cortex – to slow down or shut down altogether since the ability to do calculus is not a priority when being chased by a tiger! The problem is that the amygdala gets activated whenever we deviate from routine. For the amygdala, safety comes first even when I'm sitting comfortably in my chair, imagining about taking over the world or any other obscenely big step. © Pexels Fear is the immediate response to anything new and it's a normal part of our lives. Yes, it's normal, embrace it. When we decide to take a big step, the amygdala comes into play, thus restricting access to our cortex. Small steps are a way to bypass the amygdala so that one can harness the complete powers of their cortex. Thus, Kaizen encourages taking steps that are so small that they're painless to follow through. This changes the focus from the staggering task at hand (say, learning how to play the guitar) to just being a little better than your previous self (“Let's learn how to play the first 4 notes of the DDLJ tune.”). The Toyota Way A classic example of Kaizen in action is The Toyota Production System. Any worker in Toyota's manufacturing units can stop the assembly line to fix a minor defect. This goes against the conventional idea of mass manufacturing which translates to, “never stop the line, we'll fix errors at the end of the line”. Taiichi Ohno, a manager influenced by the idea of “small, continual improvement”, noticed that fixing errors at the end was a time-consuming, expensive process. He trained his workers in Kaizen. They were trained to identify small problems and carry out small actions that could fix the problem then and there. As a result, contrary to conventional manufacturing and management wisdom, Toyota's production soared. © Reuters They took it one step further when they opened up the suggestions box to everyone. While doing their job, anyone who took the effort to ask small questions, like “What if there's an Excel function that does exactly what I'm doing by hand?”, could put in suggestions for the upper management to review. The good ones were rewarded appropriately. This practice gave every worker the incentive to find Kaizen opportunities at every stage of the production pipeline and it worked. Today, Toyota prides itself on being a reliable, good quality, affordable brand and they consider Kaizen to be instrumental in their success. You Can Do It It's important to note that Kaizen and innovation (a radical change, by definition, i.e. a big step) are not mutually exclusive. The emphasis is on continual improvement and more often than not, it's easier to make a miniscule change than it is to innovate. Even right now, imagine you're asked to innovate, and then imagine that you're asked to make the smallest improvement in your routine. Irrespective of the actual work, doesn't the latter have a soothing effect on your brain unlike the former that feels like a tough, elaborate 'Roadies' task? Kaizen is all about ease of adoption. It'll guide you to move at a slower, relaxed pace to achieve lasting change. In his book 'One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way', Dr. Robert Maurer says, “If you hit a wall of resistance, try scaling back the size of your steps. (...) The essence of Kaizen is an optimistic belief in our potential for continuous improvement.” © Thinkstock/Getty Images Conclusion There's the age-old debate between hard work and talent. Talent is inherent skill (like being good at guessing the meanings of words from the context in which they're used) and hard work requires rigor (like completing a book with several tough words in it). For the bigger goals in life, talent tends to fall short and hard work needs to be done over a long period of time, the results of which come even later. Hard work always trumps talent but people rely on the latter because performing consistent hard work for weeks without seeing the desired results is a scary proposition. The process is plagued with questions like, “What if I never make it? Should I have listened to my parents and stuck to a regular job?” In such dire circumstances, the Kaizen philosophy is like a friendly pat on the back telling you, “There's always light at the end of the tunnel. Eventually, these small improvements will add up. They surely will! Don't be intimidated by the horizon, just look down and put one foot in front of the other. You can do it.” References: “One Small Step Can Change Your Life: The Kaizen Way” by Robert Maurer, PhD
  23. Sometimes test matches can get a little boring and could potentially not attract a lot of crowd since it goes on for days, but not this one. So much has been happening during the ongoing India vs South Africa test series, that it is honestly harder to keep up with them than the Kardashians. It has become more like a cheesy Bollywood movie than an actual cricket match; there's drama, romance, action, anger, it's the whole package. Oh, and how can we forget memes. It's trending on the internet so much that obviously people can't stop themselves from making jokes about it. The drama filled second Test gave us two incredible memes of two incredible players so far. Seriously, what more can we ask for, that's honestly like a dream come true. On one hand, we have a perfectly timed picture of skipper Virat Kohli, frozen in a jump-like posture after celebrating his ton which is absolutely meme-worthy. And, I think he appreciates the fact that he's not alone in this. Not to be left behind, we also have Hardik Pandya doing everything in his power to reach the meme status. He was run-out in such a bizarre way, and honestly it could have been very well avoided, but at least some good came out of it as soon as the news hit Twitter. Check out some of the most hilarious memes we've seen so far: Even Virat Is So Done With #Virushka "Kaun hain humaare honeymoon ka jokes banane waale?

  24. It looks like IIM-Ahmedabad will probably have a gala time in the classrooms with 100% attendance. Why? Because, IIM-A is all set to introduce SS Rajamouli's 'Baahubali: The Conclusion' as a case study in their academic curriculum. Yes, reportedly in a first, 'Baahubali 2' will be included in one of the electives and the students of Contemporary Film Industry, will study the power of a sequel and how they can 'derisk' the movie as a marketing concept. © Arka Media Works According to a report published in DNA, Bharathan Kandaswamy said, "I will be introducing 'Bahubali 2' as a case study in the new academic year and it will essentially focus on the power of a sequel and how a sequel can derisk the movie as a marketing concept. There is a research from Stanford University which says that a prequel is always considered better than the sequel but a sequel makes more money than a prequel." He further added "Sequels make more money because the producers become more marketing savvy based on the success of a prequel. My course this time will focus on marketing mantras evolving around sequels and how decisions need to be taken that respect art and creativity of a movie and yet are able to make money. Blending art, business and technology is the key." © Pexels (For Representation) Well, IIM-A is said to be the first business school in Asia to introduce a comprehensive elective course on the film industry and over 700 students have already enrolled in the course. This course provides a 360 degree view of the creative industry space with special focus on movie production. In fact, the official account of 'Baahubali' too shared the news with their fans on Twitter. #Baahubali2 now will be introduced as a case study in one of the electives at the @IIMAhmedabad ðððâ https://t.co/QgzzLrXnh0 — Baahubali (@BaahubaliMovie) January 15, 2018 Before the release of 'Baahubali 2' in April 2017, people couldn't sleep for days and were constantly haunted by just one question – WHY DID KATTAPPA KILL BAAHUBALI? Soon this turned into a million dollar question and people flocked the movie theatres to know the real reason behind Kattappa's ultimate betrayal. If we were to compare a movie character with any of the education institutions out there, there's one comparison that all the MBA aspirants will unanimously agree with – Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad is the 'Baahubali' of business schools. And now that the business school will study the movie, they probably might have a different explanation to Kattappa's actions and why he betrayed and killed Baahubali. © Arka Media Works When Prabhas and SS Rajamouli decided to work together in 'Baahubali: The Beginning' and 'Baahubali: The Conclusion'; little did they know that the movie will change the fate of Indian cinema, and they will become the spear headers of this change. 'Baahubali 2' literally crushed the box office in 2017 for reasons that were quite obvious – intriguing storyline, brilliant visual effects and graphics and exceptional acting of Prabhas, Rana Daggubatti, Sathyaraj, Anushka Shetty and Ramya Krishnan. © Arka Media Works As for the movie, we hope Rajamouli comes up with a parallel ending where all of this turns out to be a fragment of Katappa's imagination, who in reality was the main antagonist trying to wreck havoc in the lives if doting brothers Amarendra Baahubali and Bhallaladeva. But, we all know that's not going to happen, so let's go back and binge watch both the movies all over again.
  25. After a sensational comeback in 2017, Roger Federer is set to embark on a new challenge as he gears up for the first Grand Slam of the year - the Australian Open. With Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic setting the bar very high early in the tournament, Federer, too, got off to a solid start to his Australian Open title defence by brushing Aljaz Bedene aside in straight sets, in his first game. While many have labelled him as the man to beat at the ongoing Australian Open, Federer himself feels that a 36-year-old like him should never be the favourite at a major. That's the humility this legendary World No. 2 player brings to the table. But, apart from being humble and grounded, Federer also has a great sense of humour. ðð·ð¨ð­ð¸ð¨ pic.twitter.com/zvy6itZoDm — Roger Federer (@rogerfederer) January 14, 2018 Ahead of his opening clash at Melbourne Park, Federer - who's arguably the world's greatest hero in tennis - shared a picture of himself alongside a few famous superhero characters.
