  1. More than a year ago, during an encounter with terrorists in Bandipora, Jammu & Kashmir, CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) Commandant Chetan Kumar Cheetah was shot nine times in the gunbattle that ensued. He was the Commanding Officer (CO) of CRPF's 45th battalion in Kashmir Valley at the time. Cheetah was in a coma for almost 1.5 months after suffering major injuries in his brain, right eye, abdomen, both arms, and left hand. If Cheetah's survival after receiving nine bullet injuries wasn't miraculous enough, he proved that his love for his country is stronger than any other force in the world. With this spirit, Cheetah has now sprung back into action and has joined active duty. © BCCL After his intense battle with terrorists, Cheetah was awarded the Kirti Chakra, the second highest peacetime gallantry medal on Independence Day, last year. He was also applauded by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat for his bravery. According to a report in The Times Of India, Cheetah has joined the CRPF's directorate at CGO Complex and is waiting for a posting. And reportedly, officials have said that he will be given office related work for the time being, since he hasn't completely recovered to return to combat duties. © Facebook Cheetah's wife Uma Singh spoke to TOI and said, “There are small issues (related to his health) which will take some time. But he is very happy to join back and is even eager to go back to combat duties.”After getting discharged from hospital last year, Cheetah had said that he wishes to join the CoBRA battalion of CRPF, which fights with Naxals in left-wing affected areas. Although it will take Cheetah some time to recover, his bravery, love and strong willpower to serve his country and protect its citizens; deserves all the respect in the world. Cheetah is proof that not all heroes wear capes, some silently protect you from external threats by putting their lives on the line. Cheetah is truly an inspiration for all of us.
  2. The unbelievable transformation of Rajkummar Rao from a super hardcore method actor to a snazzy fashionista is worth documenting. There was a time, not so long ago, when Rajkummar used to be the picture of a seasoned arthouse talent who couldn't be bothered with the seemingly superficial charm of 'being fashionable'. But all that is in the past. Rajkummar's new avatar is as much about the packaging outside as it is about the raw talent inside. Hinting at it rather unabashedly, Rajkummar just wore the most interesting outfit anyone has ever worn in Bollywood this year. © Viral Bhayani That silhouette! We are speechless. One has to be at the pinnacle of having flawless aesthetic sensibility to pull off (even dare to try, rather) that delightfully asymmetrical silhouette. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the basics, even the colour of that outfit is absolutely unusual. When was the last time you spotted someone wearing this uber sophisticated shade of 'rust iron meets rotting timber'? And the best part is, the colour complements Rajkummar's complexion like a dream. © Viral Bhayani We love that converging row pattern of buttons on both sides of his jacket. What's underneath that is even more impressive, we say. That steel grey kurta with the edgy uneven hemline is effortlessly runway ready. Street style at its edgiest best! © Viral Bhayani His choice of footwear shows that he has reached that level of maturity in fashion that is all about understated elegance. He has chosen to wear a pair of sleek brown leather sandals, that beautifully blends in the rustic, earthy grace of the outfit to his own grounded, humble demeanour. We are proud, Rajkummar.
  3. Whether you upgraded to the iPhone X or not, one has to admit that Apple completely changed the game last year with the user experience. The company introduced a new way to unlock the smartphone, i.e. Face ID and also introduced new gestures for navigation and carrying out tasks. In fact, the design is now being copied by a number of Android companies and we expect that number to grow by the end of this year. © Apple Making a move from the iPhone 7 to the iPhone X has been a smooth experience and users who have bought the smartphone are relatively happy. There have been reports that the iPhone X hasn't been selling well. However, a recent earnings call by Tim Cook suggests otherwise. Tim Cook said that the iPhone X has “surpassed our expectations” and is the “top-selling iPhone” in every single week since its release. © Pexels Having said that, a survey conducted by Loup Ventures reveals that at least 22% of current iPhone users are planning to upgrade to the next generation of iPhones. Additional 20% of respondents indicated that they are planning to buy the iPhone 8 or the iPhone X sometime this year. Basically, this translated to at least 42% iPhone users who are planning to upgrade to a new iPhone by the end of 2018. It can also be noted that these users are not going to switch to an Android device and simply discard their old iPhone for a new model. © KGI Research Apple is expected to launch three models this year, which will include a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus, a 6.1-inch price-friendly LCD model and an upgrade to the current iPhone X.

  4. Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2018 is now officially official. The company posted the dates on its site, noting that its big annual developer's conference will be returning to San Jose on June 4. This year, the event is taking place in San Jose, as it was last year, at the McEnery Convention Center. It'll be the 29th annual WWDC and will run from Monday, June 4 to Friday, June 8. Traditionally, Apple announces details of the next version of iOS, updates to Apple TV software, watchOS, and macOS. All of which are of direct interest to all of us, as well as developers, for whom it's crucial. Last year, the updates included the announcement of the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature for iPhones, a radical redesign of the App Store, and the announcement of Monument Valley 2 and updates for the iPad in iOS 11. © Apple New hardware announcements also can play a part during WWDC. Apple last year announced the HomePod speaker and the iMac Pro computer. We may well see new iPads and/or updated MacBooks in June, too. But don't expect an iPhone announcement: That's still expected in September. Based on the most recent rumours, Apple could announce a new cheaper MacBook with a Retina display that costs around $999 and a new iPad that could take advantage of features like Face ID and Animjoji. © MensXP The new version, iOS 12, will reportedly emphasize reliability and performance instead of new features after iOS 11's bug-beset rollout. Still, other rumours suggest Animoji is due for an update: it's reportedly going to be integrated with the FaceTime video messaging app and it may arrive on newly released iPads. Improvements to Siri are also reportedly in the works. Last year at WWDC Apple debuted ARKit, and since then, developers with apps in every category on the App Store have embraced inventive ways to engage customers with virtual experiences overlaid in the real world."
  5. It has been widely rumoured that new iPhone models may be unveiled later this year at WWDC and there is a high chance it would be the new iteration of the iPhone SE. However, a new report from Taiwan's Economic Daily News suggests that the only new devices that will be announced at Apple's annual event will be new iPads. © Twitter The reports further suggest that Apple is expected to launch an updated version of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and a brand new 11-inch iPad Pro at WWDC 2018. Sources have detailed that the new tablets are supposed to have thinner bezels and feature the A11X processor just like the iPhone X. In fact, it will be very similar to Apple's current flagship device and will also support Face ID. This could mean that the home button will be removed from the tablet as well. The main premise of the report appears to be that Apple will not announce a new iPhone WWDC this year and sources believe that Apple will announce the smartphone in the second half of the year. © Twitter_iDrop News It is worth noting that a new affordable iPhone cannot be completely ruled out and it is expected to have same design updates as the iPhone X. However, KGO securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo cast doubt over the iPhone SE revival as it would cost a lot of money and resources to bring back the affordable device. © Apple This can be further corroborated as other reports have suggested Apple is working on two new OLED iPhone models alongside a cheaper 6.1-inch LCD model. It is highly unlikely that a fourth phone would be launched by Apple as it would cause confusion amongst their customers and may also affect sales of more expensive models.
  6. When our favorite and the coolest billionaire aka Elon Musk announced his mission to colonize Mars, the world was taken aback by his too good to be true plans. For obvious reasons, it became a whole new debate as to how much of what he has planned can actually take place in the near future, as his timelines were a set a little too early, to say the least. © Space X His privately funded mission aims to send a rocket to Mars by 2022. However, there is a new development in this regard and it's exactly what was needed to make us all excited for the next year. (We know it's just March but who cares?) While attending the South by Southwest festival (SXSW) this weekend, Musk indulged in a question-answer sort of segment. © Twitter On being asked about his Mars spaceship, he revealed, “We are building the first Mars or interplanetary ship, and I think we'll be able to short trips, flights by the first half of next year." But before you get too excited he added, “Although sometimes, my timelines are a little, you know...” We understand Elon, it isn't easy to be a crazy billionaire. He further talked about how he aims to set an example and encourage other firms to venture into space travel. He said, “They currently don't think it's possible, so if we show them that it is, they'll up their game and build interplanetary transport vehicles, as well.” Umm, remember this, guys? © Twitter We think he has already set an example by sending a freaking Tesla into space. Anyway, all of this is great news but what he revealed next is even better. Or maybe not. The good news is that he won't be allowing only rich people to make use of his mission in order to 'escape' Earth. Now escaping Earth would have made a good, lame joke but in this case, it might soon become a reality. He talked about the people who'd get to go to Mars and well, it obviously won't be easy, “For the early people that go to Mars, it will be far more dangerous. It kind of reads like (Ernest) Shackleton's ad for Antarctic explorers: Difficult, dangerous, good chance you'll die. Excitement for those who survive.” Pretty sure he'd find a million people who'd be willing to take this kind of risk as long as they get to visit Mars. You can hear him answer all this and more: Well, one thing's for sure: by revealing all of this, Mr. Musk has set our expectations at an all-time high and for some weird reason, we trust him to meet all of them.
  7. Korea politics professor who became a viral sensation after his children interrupted a BBC interview. Photo: File The Korea politics professor who became a viral sensation after his children interrupted a BBC interview says he has been pulled over by police for selfies and photographed buying milk in the year since the broadcast. Robert Kelly of Pusan National University was commenting on the downfall of impeached president Park Geun-hye when his daughter Marion waltzed into his home office, followed by his toddler son James, who wheeled in on his baby walker. Suddenly the implications of a parliamentary vote turned into what the BBC described as a "perfect piece of physical comedy". Kelly´s wife Kim Jung-A, who was watching on television from their living room, flew in seconds later, flinging her arms in a desperate attempt to retrieve the young intruders, before returning on all fours to reach out and close the door. The clip spread like wildfire online and provoked widespread debate and commentary in media around the world. It is the most-watched video ever on the BBC´s YouTube page, with more than 27 million views -- half as much again as the second-placed item, drone footage of the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz in Poland. A year after the broadcast, Kelly wrote on the website of the Lowy Institute, an Australian think tank, that the subsequent 12 months had "mostly been fun, and sometimes weird". "I was photographed buying milk at Costco once, because apparently BBC Dad´s calcium consumption is a hot issue," he said. "A cop in South Korea once pulled me over to ask for a selfie." The family had made some money as a result of their notoriety, "but the total amount was not that much". The biggest upside, he said, was that his opinions on North Korea and northeast Asian security were sought more often, and he was invited to more events -- although at one panel in China he was introduced as "BBC Dad... and, oh yeah, an expert on Korea". As the furor mounted in the days after the interview, Kelly had expressed hopes that one day he would be known for his work, adding: "I mean, this wouldn´t be the first line in my obituary." 'Race-gender narrative' The US-born academic, who studied at Ohio State University, teaches US foreign policy at the institution where he is an associate professor, and has research interests in international politics and political theory. The politics surrounding the video were ?weird?, he added in his post, published on the anniversary of the interview Sunday. Some racist neo-Nazis called him a "race traitor" - "This was predictable; anyone in an interracial relationship has experienced it," he said. "More curious were the responses from the left which tried to read some kind of race-gender narrative into the video," he added, with his wife´s attempts to stay out of shot by crawling along the floor seen as "some sort of metaphor for white-male social power in Asia". "The episode was just a family blooper," Kelly insisted. In South Korea, suggestions that his wife was the family nanny were seen as prejudiced at the time, with broadcaster SBS referring to "Caucasian-centred racism". Kelly denied the two most frequent claims about the video - that it was staged so that they could become famous, and that he did not get up because he was not wearing trousers. "We anticipate that this is our final major public statement on the video," he added, hoping that after a year, "peak interest in it has passed, making way for the next dancing cat video".
  8. Just like the movie 'Hidden Figures' where women proved their mettle with hidden numbers, it seems like Rekha Jhunjhunwala, the co-owner of Rare Enterprises, too has a special eye when it comes to numbers. Her investment portfolio itself tells her whole story. Rekha Jhunjhunwala, the other half of Rakesh Jhunwala, a well known Indian investor and trader, investments just saw a proliferating rise and has earned more than 900 cr in just one year. © TOI According to a report shared by Zee Business, Rekha's investment portfolio has seen a massive growth of 47 percent in a single year. As of March 8, 2017, they were valued at Rs. 1,909 crores and exactly a year later, in March 2018, it states that the value of her portfolio stood at Rs. 2,814 crores. That's a rise of 900 crore which is a pretty big deal. By now you must be interested to get into the number detail of her portfolio and find out where all she invested her money, so here is a little breakdown of her recent investment portfolio. Her 3.17 percent stake in Delta Corp and her 1.53 percent stake in Titan, both separately saw a surge of as much as 80 percent in a year. If you have been following Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's investment strategy, who is also compared to Warren Buffett In India, then you will remember that Titan is the same stock that had helped Mr. Jhunjhunwala add Rs.875 crore to his fortune in a single day. Other major stocks that helped Rekha Jhunjhunwala add 900 cr to her fortune are as follows: © Thinkstock Rekha holds a stake in Aptech (11.47 %), Autoline Industries (3.48 %), D B Realty (2.05 %), and McNally Bharat (4.03 %) all of which saw a rise between 10 to 30 percent. Her other investments include NCC (8.11 percent) and TV18 Broadcast (1.38 percent) both of which surged by almost 50 percent. So, now you have the numbers as well as the stocks that are seeing a remarkable rise, are you now ready to bet big?
  9. Nowadays, it's extremely rare to see a person going beyond the call of duty and doing something only for the benefit of others. But Inspector Rekha Mishra is not only an exemplary cop, she is also the reason behind more than 900 kids reconciling with their families in one year © Twitter/PIB Rekha is a Sub-Inspector belonging to the Railway Protection Force (RPF) of Central Railway. She joined the force in 2014 but it was in 2016 when she came into the limelight when she undertook the responsibility of tracing back the parents of three young girls who had fled to Mumbai from Chennai. On spotting the girls getting off a train without adult supervision, she realised that she needs to confront them as to why they were alone. However, when she didn't get any answers from them, she took the help of a translator and discovered that they had run away to Mumbai with the dreams of a glamorous life. That was enough for Rekha to set out on a journey to help runaway and lost kids. © Twitter Her job enables her to spot such kids easily as most of them get off at the last stop of the railway stations. She rescued more than 950 children in 2017 alone, out of which 92 were girls. Since most of these kids belong to the age group of 8-16, she makes sure that sensitivity is a priority when dealing with them. She has also repeatedly taken the help of social media in order to speed up the process. It's difficult to imagine how exhausting- both physically and emotionally, this whole process really is. Dealing with children, especially in cases where there is a language barrier, is definitely not an easy feat. But by now, Rekha has become accustomed to it and has gained massive respect for her work. Meet the guardian angel of lost children.

Her approach towards this issue is commendable and we salute her for her outstanding contribution.
  10. A policeman calls for help as he stands near a burning site after a bomb blast in Quetta, Pakistan, March 14, 2014. REUTERS/Naseer Ahmed/Files ISLAMABAD: Casualties linked to militancy and violence have dropped in Pakistan for the third consecutive year, with 21 percent fewer fatalities in 2017 than in the previous year, a security think-tank says. Some 2,057 people were killed and 2,074 wounded for a total of 4,131 casualties over the year, according to a report by the Islamabad-based Centre for Research and Security Studies seen Wednesday. That continued the trend from 2016, in which 2,613 people lost their lives due to violence and 1,714 were injured. In 2015, 4,647 people were killed and 1,927 injured, the group's figures show. The dramatic improvement in security came after the army launched an operation in June 2014 to wipe out militant bases in the northwestern tribal areas and end a bloody insurgency that has cost thousands of civilian lives since 2004. It has involved a series of military offensives as well as some attempts to block the militants' sources of funding. Those efforts were in the spotlight again when a global terror financing monitor voted last month to put Pakistan on a watchlist. The remnants of militant groups, however, are still sometimes able to carry out periodic bloody attacks. The report further warned that even with the security improvement, new militant groups have appeared in the country. It also said Daesh had claimed responsibility for attacks that left at least 143 people dead ? more than twice the 68 people the report said were killed by the group in 2016.
  11. The Oscar fever was real today, it was the only thing people could talk about and the only thing we could write about. So, if you're done with these awards – or never cared about them in the first place – here's a simple round up of the 90th Academy Awards, the most prestigious awards. The whole of Hollywood waits for this one night of glitz and glamour and Oscars never disappoint. While unfortunately there were no screw ups this year, like last year, but it was still seemed like such a fun night, according to the pictures. (I personally would have been happier if there was a repeat of the whole 'La La Land' and 'Moonlight' but, oh well) 1. The most important moment – Emma Stone putting on lip gloss. This honestly deserves its own Oscar. 2. The Oscar winner for Best Actress, Frances McDormand being graceful as ever. This is so hilarious, I don't really know about her but I love her. 3. The two stars of Oscar nominated movie 'Call Me By Your Name' - Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer looking adorable as ever. 4. Jennifer Lawrence making her grand entrance. 5. And, then just casually climbing seats without spilling a drop of wine in her hand. #TrueTalent 6. Kobe Bryant won a freaking Oscar, like who would've thought. 7. Frances McDormand and Gal Gadot kissing for some reason. 8. Jordan Peele made history by becoming the first African-American to win an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. 9. Jared Leto's epic photobomb. 10. Who needs professional photographers when you have Jared Leto with an iPhone. 11. I would just like to say one thing about this picture – I love you, Terry Crews, my unproblematic fav. 12. Gary Oldman stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar. 13. All the main category winners looking stunning as ever. 14. Gary Oldman celebrating his win with his family. 15. Donald Sutherland looking like a sinister 1000 years old vampire. 16. There was a freaking jet ski on the Oscar stage. 17. Frances McDormand and Tiffany Haddish doing whatever they're doing. 18. And, finally Tiffany Haddish proving she's awesome.
  12. You must have heard and experienced the concept of 'return gifts' or party favors, as the adults call it today. It's a token of appreciation and thoughtfulness that is gifted to the guests when they attend a party or an event. You know like the famous 'Koffee with Karan' gift hamper? If you thought that was posh, wait till you read about the Oscar 'swag bag' that is given to Oscar nominees every year. While the winners obviously take the golden trophy back home, nominees don't return empty-handed either. It's been an annual ritual carried by a marketing company called 'Distinctive Assets', which is not actually affiliated by the Academy but indulges in hampers for the nominees in the top categories, namely; best actor, best actress, best supporting actor, best supporting actress and best director. This year's swag bag is worth a whopping $100,000 dollars, which is around 65 lakh rupees! The contents are pretty interesting as well. It contains a freaking 12-night trip to Tanzania, a full week Hawaiian escapade in a resort, a health and ancestry service package, a levitating Bluetooth speaker, a gorgeous diamond necklace and some expensive collagen and gold masks thrown in. This is just the icing on the cake. If shenanigans interest you, here's the full list : -Edible jewelry from Chocolatines -Underarm sweat patches from Dandi Patch -Lemonade-flavored moonshine from Southern Wicked Lemonade -A 12-night Tanzania trip for two from International Expeditions -A seven-day Hawaii trip at Koloa Landing Resort in Poipu -A stay at Avaton Luxury Villas Resort in Halkidiki, Greece -A weeklong spa retreat at Golden Door -Pepperface, a lightweight pepper spray -Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation dental procedure -23andMe genetic service -A Luxura Diamonds "conflict-free" necklace -NeverMissed dating app, available pre-launch -A 10,000 bowl donation to an animal shelter of their choice and bags of pet food from Halo, Purely For Pets -MZ Skin firming eye cream and golden treatment mask -A lifetime supply of Oxygenetix foundation -Locally grown oranges, courtesy of delivery app EpiFruit -A memoir by Esther Fairfax about her mother, Lotte Berk, the innovator of Barre -Healing Saint's skin serum and follicle stimulant -Jarritos, the Mexican soda -10 sessions with personal trainer Alexis Seletzky -A one-year supply of ALLE´L's skin care program -Bangarang's Positive Cube, a wooden box filled with 199 cards of positive action and quotes -Color-changing lipstick from Blush & Whimsy -Charleston & Harlow soy candles -Danish cookbook, Cook Yourself Happy -Curlee Girlee children's book -Organic, vegan and small-batch Delicacies lollipops -Face It and Eye Love It facewash and makeup removers -Happiest Tee's American-made T-shirts -Weight loss supplement Hydroxycut Organic -10-piece Inception of Beauty makeup set -Justice for Vets symbolic coin -An 18-minute phobia-relief session with Kalliope -LE CE`LINE eyelashes products -Liwu jewelry from Ireland -Look Fabulous Forever makeup specially formulated for older women -My Magic Mud toothpaste, which combines activated coconut shell charcoal and bentonite clay -M.Y.O. cosmetic clutch -99 Creative WOWs creativity kit -Nurse Gigi skin rejuvenation procedures -Oumere anti-aging skincare -Paiva Aloe cleanser and mask -PETA's cruelty-free bath bombs -2 gourmet pretzel gift boxes from Posh Pretzels -A.I. beauty startup PROVEN's personalized skincare products -Quincy Herbals detox tea -Quip's oral care kit -Commissioned work from Reian Williams Fine Art -Rouge Maple syrup -Safi Kilima bracelet with oval tanzanite stones -Shop Modern Innovations' levitating Bluetooth speaker -The Green Garmento's multi-use Gigantote -Vaya's Tyffyn lunchboxes -Totalee hair care products -Wetsleeve on-the-go hydration sleeve -Youthblast anti-aging supplement and 24k Gold Facial According to Forbes, the companies which participate to be a part of this bag pay out of their own will because the recipients have a high value attached with their name and stature of work. I think even KJO will need a minute to just digest all of that. via GIPHY The people getting these goodie bags already have a lot of swag of their own and while it a great marketing strategy for the brands, it is still unbelievably, insanely expensive for mere mortals like us.
  13. Oscars show. Photo: Reuters Hollywood was sprinkled with stardust Sunday as cinema?s A-list came out for the Oscars, with a photo finish for best picture expected to cap an awards season overshadowed by scandal over sexual misconduct in showbiz. Dark comedy Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri went into the show in pole position for the most prestigious prizes, although fairy tale romance The Shape of Water led the overall charge with 13 nominations on a night expected to highlight Tinseltown?s campaigns against sexual misconduct and gender inequality. Hosted for the second straight year by late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel, the 90th Academy Awards is beamed live around the world by ABC from Hollywood?s Dolby Theatre. The show caps a difficult few months during which the industry has declared war on the pervasive culture of sexual impropriety unearthed by the downfall of movie mogul and alleged serial *** attacker Harvey Weinstein. Kimmel set the tone by targetting Weinstein in his opening monologue. The host said Weinstein?s downfall following dozens of allegations of sexual harassment and assault ?was long overdue?, along with the demise of numerous other Tinseltown figures caught up in scandal. ?We can?t let bad behaviour slide anymore. The world is watching us. We need to set an example,? he said. The first Oscar of the night, for best supporting actor, went to Sam Rockwell for his acclaimed turn as a racist, violent police officer in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Allison Janney won the best supporting actress prize for her turn as the cold, sardonic mother of disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya ? capping a sparkling awards season which saw her win all major prizes. The statuesque 58-year-old Janney, the overwhelming favourite in the category, bested another actress playing a stern mother, Laurie Metcalf in Lady Bird, as well as Octavia Spencer for The Shape of Water. ?My fellow nominees, you represent everything that is good and right and human about this profession. You are all extraordinary,? she enthused at the podium. Activism With the #MeToo and Time?s Up campaigns against sexual misconduct and gender inequality dominating the 2018 awards circuit, this year?s Oscars gala is seen as an opportunity for Tinseltown to support female film-making. Greta Gerwig is only the fifth woman in Oscars history to be nominated for best director ? for comedy/drama Lady Bird ? but she faces tough competition from Guillermo del Toro, the runaway favourite for The Shape of Water. There was also the first nod in history for a female cinematographer, Rachel Morrison, who shot Dee Rees?s racial drama Mudbound. The Time?s Up initiative did not plan a coordinated protest on Sunday ? like the striking red carpet ?blackout? at the Golden Globes. But Kimmel highlighted the work of both campaigns, pointing out that only 11% of movies are made by women. ?The year men screwed up so badly, women started dating fish,? he joked, in a reference to the plot of The Shape of Water. A host of stars ? including Jane Fonda, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Patrick Stewart and Richard Jenkins ? sported Time?s Up badges, civil rights ribbons as well as orange US flags backing gun control. In another nod to the women?s movements, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has tapped past winners Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster to present the best actress Oscar, according to Variety. Traditionally, the previous year?s best actor winner would present that statuette, but Casey Affleck, who triumphed in 2017 for Manchester by the Sea, withdrew under a cloud of sexual harassment accusations he denies. Avoiding another flub Other winners by the halfway stage included Pixar?s Coco for best animated feature and A Fantastic Woman ? a love story from Chilean director Sebastian Lelio with a much-praised star turn from transgender actress Daniela Vega ? in the foreign film category. The documentary race ended with an upset as Icarus, a searing expose of Russian drug abuse in sport by Bryan Fogel and Dan Coogan, beat French filmmaker Agnes Varda?s hotly-tipped Faces Places. There were three Oscars in the technical categories for Christopher Nolan?s Dunkirk and one each for Darkest Hour, Phantom Thread and The Shape of Water. Organisers are looking to rebound after last year?s flubbed announcement by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway of the best picture winner ? the trophy was initially given to La La Land, when the actual winner was Moonlight. In a surprise turn of events, Beatty and Dunaway have been tapped to present the same prize this time around, according to The Hollywood Reporter. ?This year, the Oscars are really surprisingly and beautifully inclusive,? Luca Guadagnino, director of Call Me By Your Name, an outside bet for best picture, told AFP at Saturday?s Independent Spirit Awards. We have films that speak about so many topics and that celebrate so many filmmakers from different parts of the world.
  14. We've all been there- the day you THINK you are going to get a big, fat promotion and can't contain your excitement...only to find out that you aren't getting one anytime soon. Quite a bummer, isn't it? Especially when you think you sure-as-hell deserved it. But alas, most of us decide to continue with that 9-5 job of ours, hoping for the best. But our man-of-the-hour David O'Neal decided to take matters into his own hands. And thank God he did. 32-year-old David worked as a banker in London and was earning a pretty decent salary of £32,000 (approx. Rs. 28 lakhs) a year. Although he found his job to be secure, he knew it was time to move on when he was denied a well-deserved promotion. © Facebook (David J O'Neal) With a dream of starting his own business one day, he had his 'eureka' moment quite unexpectedly: while cutting his little boy's hair. He always had a hard time convincing his two boys to sit down for a haircut but he came up with a solution. © Facebook (David J O'Neal) He either used to allow them to use the Playstation or would put on a movie and no points for guessing, the kids loved it. That made him realise that opening up a salon for kids with similar amenities would be turn out to be a great business. His main aim was to turn this otherwise 'daunting' experience for kids into a fun one by surrounding them with things they love. In 2014, he took a loan from the Government-backed Start-Up Loans Company, which offers 6 percent fixed rate on borrowing up to £25,000 and thus, his salon for kids, 'ShortCuts' was born. Brownie points for the name, David! © Facebook (Shortcuts Children's Salon) 'ShortCuts Children's Salon' is unlike any salon that you have seen in your life. Everything is tailored for kids, including the seats which by the way are mini racing cars. Talk about fancy! © Twitter (ShortCuts Children's Salon) Right from the colourful atmosphere to the games available, it is a kid's paradise. Apart from the adorable seats, kids can even play Playstation games or watch a cartoon of their choice. © Facebook (Shortcuts Children's Salon) We are seriously bummed for not being able to get a haircut in a salon like that during our childhood. © Twitter (Shortcuts Children's Salon) Although David employed hairdressers when he started out because obviously, he didn't have the required skills, he soon acquired them. Becoming a hairdresser became his priority and after leaving his job, he soon got the training to become a qualified one. © Twitter (Shortcuts Children's Salon) However, finding hairdressers who would be happy to work with kids wasn't an easy task but David made sure he didn't have to compromise on quality. The employees who work with him now are qualified hairdressers; thus, making his salon a credible one and has also helped him build a loyal set of customers. © Facebook (Shortcuts Children's Salon) Cut to the present, David now has 9 salons running across London thanks to which, David now earns more than £650K (approx. Rs.5 crores) a year. He also plans to expand globally with his successful franchise model. David's leap of faith worked wonders for him and serves as the perfect motivation to start one's own business, no matter how unconventional it may seem to others.
  15. Anti-crime hate crimes went up from 1,204 the year before to 1,678 reported in the year up to January 2018-Photo: File (Reuters) Hate crimes against Muslims in London went up by 40 percent in a year, British media reported, citing figures from the Mayor?s Office for Policing and Crime. Anti-Muslim hate crimes went up from 1,204 the year before to 1,678 reported in the year up to January 2018. US anti-Muslim bias incidents increased in 2016: report The report found a 57 percent increase in the number of incidents in 2016 Scotland Yard meanwhile said the figures may not fully represent the ?hugely under-reported? hate crimes. London mayor Sadiq Khan denounced the uptick and warned those found involved will be punished. "I?m calling on all Londoners to pull together, and send a clear message around the world that our city will never be divided by individuals who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life," he said. A similar report in October had said violence, intimidation, assaults and other hate crimes targeting mosques and Muslims doubled in Britain in 2017. Hate crimes in Britain against Muslim community doubled during 2017 Crimes include racist abuse, threats to bomb mosques and attacks on mosques and worshipers The police recorded 110 hate crimes from March to July 2017 in Britain compared to 47 in 2016. Crimes include racist abuse, threats to bomb mosques, attacks on mosques and worshipers.
  16. Just a day before MWC starts, Samsung has officially announced its 2018 flagship duo, the Galaxy S9, and S9 Plus. (c) Twitter/TechCrunch The display department hasn't changed a lot. The S9 and S9 Plus mount a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED panels from Samsung. The aspect ratio stands at 18.5:9 in a taller form factor. The US and China are getting a 10nm based Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor while the other markets will be powered by Samsung's proprietary Exynos 9810 CPU. And this is where the similarities between the two phones end. Following Apple, Samsung is packing the Plus model with more bells and whistles. The RAM got a usual upgrade to 6GB compared to 4GB of Galaxy S8. The storage also gets doubled at 128GB for Galaxy S9 Plus. Thankfully, Samsung is still keeping a micro-SD slot and a headphone jack. (c) Twitter/Verge The S9 features single lens 12MP rear camera with a variable aperture at f/1.5 and f/2.4. The f/1.5 aperture kicks in dark situations and helps to gather more light to improve the image quality. The f/2.4 shows off its advantage in daylight conditions and reduce the over-sharpening of images often done by a wide aperture. The single LED flash and OIS are there as well. The bigger brother comes with dual camera setup and the primary camera works similar to Galaxy S9's 12MP snapper while the secondary camera features a telephoto lens. The functionality is same as Note 8 with Live focus mode that adds fake blur in the background and let you adjust the blur after the image is saved. Both the lens are OIS equipped too. The addition of new and powerful chipset has added the support for 4K video recording at 60 frames per second. The video camera is also capable to shoot what Samsung calls Super Slow-Motion film at 720p@960fps. (c) Youtube/Verge The selfie shooter stands at the 8MP resolution and this time Samsung has added portrait mode too. The company has also packed their version of AR emojis. Unlike Apple, Samsung will make a similar avatar of your face using the front camera and the users can use it to make a gif and animated videos and unlike Apple, these are shareable to major social platforms. For the first time, Samsung has implemented stereo speakers that are specially tuned by AKG. The microphone at the top and the bottom speakers work simultaneously to deliver the best possible sound experience. And don't worry, the headphone jack is here to stay! The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus pack 3000mAh and 3500mAh battery respectively. Unfortunately, Samsung is still stuck with adaptive fast charging based on Quick Charge 2.0. (c) Youtube/Verge The fingerprint scanner is now moved to below camera, making it more accessible than ever. The iris scanner and Android Face Unlock will work together to provide better security and an instant response time. The S9 series runs on Android Oreo 8.0.0 with Samsung Experience 9.5 on top. The two devices will retail for $600 and $700 respectively (Approx INR and INR xxx). There is no word as to when the two devices will be available in India however we will keep you updated as soon as we have the information.
  17. LAHORE: The first information report (FIR) of a case of child molestation was Saturday night in Nawab Town police station, a year after the alleged incident occurred, Geo News reported citing authorities.

Unidentified reports on social media, however, claim the accused has abused over a 100 boys, with a protest being held in the area due to the delay in filing the FIR.

  22. It's only the first month into 2018 but people have already found the 'scariest movie of the year'. The trailer of 'Hereditary' is out now and it sure looks spooky as hell. It stars Toni Collette and Gabriel Byrne and the story revolves around a family which is trying hard to deal with grief.

  23. The forecast estimates that gross domestic product will have grown 6.75 percent in the current fiscal year ending in March-Reuters NEW DELHI: India?s economy should grow between 7 percent and 7.5 percent in the 2018/19 (April-March) with exports and private investment set to rebound, the country?s top finance ministry economist said in a report presented on Monday. The forecast estimates that gross domestic product will have grown 6.75 percent in the current fiscal year ending in March. Growth this year was hit by the chaotic rollout of a nationwide goods and service tax (GST) last year and a shock move to take high-value currency notes out of circulation in late 2016. The annual survey was released ahead of the government?s annual budget statement, due to be presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday. The survey warned that the coming year could be challenging, and cautioned that persistently high oil prices remain a key risk for a country that relies on imports for much of its fuel needs.
  24. All eyes will be on Hollywood Tuesday as the Oscars nominees are unveiled, with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri ahead by a nose in an awards season overshadowed by the industry´s war on sleaze. LOS ANGELES: All eyes will be on Hollywood Tuesday as the Oscars nominees are unveiled, with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri ahead by a nose in an awards season overshadowed by the industry´s war on sleaze. In a departure from previous years, there are very few clear frontrunners for the March 4 gala, making the major categories a genuine sprint to the finish line rather than the perfunctory coronation sometimes inflicted on viewers. The announcements are also being seen as an opportunity for the industry to support female filmmaking, with the #MeToo and Time´s Up campaigns against sexual misconduct and gender inequality a mainstay of the 2018 awards circuit. After 12 months of breakthrough movies by women about women -- led by directors such as Dee Rees, Patty Jenkins and Greta Gerwig -- the Oscars could also right the historic wrong of female filmmakers rarely getting acknowledged. "Whatever happens, the #MeToo movement will... play a big part in the event," predicted Tom Wood, a film writer for the millennial-skewing viral content portal Lad Bible. "Hollywood is still being rocked by allegations of historical sexual abuse from some huge names and they will be looking to grow the movement to empower victims to speak out against their abusers and raise awareness." Three Billboards The nominated movies, actors and filmmakers will be unveiled at a pre-dawn announcement, with industry watchers placing Three Billboards -- buoyed by strong showings at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards -- in pole position for best film. The movie, about a campaign for justice waged by "the Dirty Harry of grieving mothers" -- hat tip to Vanity Fair for a clever turn of phrase --, is also favourite to win the best actress (Frances McDormand) and supporting actor (Sam Rockwell). But the movie faces stiff competition from Gerwig´s coming-of-age tale Lady Bird and Guillermo del Toro´s fantasy romance The Shape of Water. In a year when the top awards could be relatively evenly spread, expect same-*** romance Call Me by Your Name, dark satire Get Out, tense war movie Dunkirk and Pentagon Papers thriller The Post all to be in the mix too. Tuesday´s nominations follow weekend awards ceremonies hosted by the guilds of both producers and actors -- ceremonies seen as bellwethers for the Academy Awards. The Shape of Water, a 1960s-set fairy tale about a mute government laboratory janitor falling in love with a merman-like creature, was deemed best movie by the Producers Guild and picked up best director for Del Toro at January´s Golden Globes. But the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) gave the victory for best cast -- deemed as encouraging a signifier for the best picture Oscar as the producers´ endorsement -- to Three Billboards. Sunday´s SAGs also rewarded Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour) and Allison Janney (I, Tonya), as well as McDormand and Rockwell for Three Billboards, all of whom took home trophies from the Globes or the Critics' Choice Awards. Janney and Rockwell should expect strong competition in the Oscars supporting acting categories from Globes nominees Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project) and Laurie Metcalf (Lady Bird). 'A lot can happen' Oldman -- perhaps the only clear leader in the major categories -- has remained the firm lead actor frontrunner for weeks, while McDormand and Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water) face a photo finish in March. Tempting as it always is by late January to view the Oscars race as done and dusted, there are invariable twists in the final weeks as movies lose momentum or are tainted by scandal. Allegations, ranging from harassment to rape, have dogged Hollywood since October, leading to the downfall of numerous powerful figures including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Jeffrey Tambor and Brett Ratner. Figures tainted by the scandal such as James Franco (The Disaster Artist) have seen their Oscars campaigns badly damaged or, in the case of Spacey -- who was expunged from All the Money in the World after filming was completed -- wiped out entirely. Meanwhile, stars attending the various Tinseltown ceremonies -- whether through defiant acceptance speeches at the podium or sober attire on the red carpet -- have been careful to send a message that Hollywood is no longer tolerating sleaze. Roughly 6,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences -- a more diverse bunch than the old white men´s club maligned in previous years -- stopped voting for nominees on January 12. "The point is, there´s a very long phase two still ahead, two weeks longer than usual due to the Winter Olympics," Variety magazine´s awards editor Kris Tapley wrote on Sunday. "A lot can happen. Final Oscar ballots are due in 37 days -- an eternity."
  25. Reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back with a new statement that may predict Apple's plans for 2018. If you skipped the iPhone X, thinking you'll buy it when it gets cheaper because of newer models, you may just get disappointed. According to the analyst, Apple's 2018 lineup will feature two new models that will feature a 6.5-inch OLED display and a 6.1-inch display. © Reuters The design of the two smartphones will be very similar to the iPhone X i.e. both will feature edge-to-edge displays and use Face ID for user authentication. Kuo has been very accurate with his predictions with respect to iPhone rumours and adds that the iPhone X will be discontinued if the sales are underwhelming. “KGI also expects a trio of iPhone models in the fall of 2018,” AppleInsider notes. “He predicts the iPhone X will be 'end of life' in the summer of 2018, instead of being retained as a lower-cost option in the following year.” © Reuters What this means is that when Apple releases the new set of iPhones later this year, the iPhone X will not get a price cut. For a decade, Apple has always cut prices of older iPhones as a cheaper option for users who don't want to pay a premium for the latest iPhone. If this rumour by Kuo is true, say goodbye to ever buying an iPhone X for a cheaper price. One of the reasons for this move will be because Apple plans to release a cheaper iPhone with the same form factor as the iPhone X. This device will use an LCD display instead of an OLED, which would make it significantly cheaper to manufacture and would be the cheaper alternative. © Reuters Currently, the iPhone 8 is the cheaper alternative to the iPhone X and as of now, there is no clue as to what Apple plans to do with the device in the future. We can presume that Apple may cut the prices on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus when the new iPhones launch later this year. Apple is also expected to launch a reiteration of the iPhone SE sometime later this year. Source: BGR
