  8. How far can you go to win a cash prize of $20,000? Slap your best friend? Most of us will do it for free. Participate in an 'eating the spiciest chilies in the world' competition? Maybe. Entering the world's scariest haunted house and spend a few 'challenging' hours there? If you're contemplating going inside, then think at least a hundred times. The McKamey Manor in Summertown, Tennessee has earned the reputation of being the world's scariest haunted house, which some people also like to call a torture factory. In fact, it's so scary that even the owner of this house, Russ McKamey, repeatedly warns people that "you really don't want to do this." Yet, despite multiple warnings, people still enter the house, but no one has ever managed to complete the challenge. But, if you do, you can go home with scary memories and $20,000. Pexels "How terrifying can this challenge be?" Well, you will figure it out once we tell you the preconditions to enter the challenge. First, you have to sign a 40-page contract. Second, you have to get a medical insurance and a letter from your dotor stating that you are physically and mentally fit to take the challenge. If you still think you're stronger than other people and winning the challenge will be a cakewalk for you, then think again. Reportedly, you are also required to watch 'And Then There Were None', an almost two hours video featuring people who gave up the haunted house and were seen telling the future visitors "you really don't want to do this." Once you're in, it's almost 8 to 10 hours of torture and hypnosis (which pretty much is McKamey's strongest weapon). According to reports, some claim that there's more that happens inside the house than what is claimed. But, McKamey says that it's actually the hypnosis he uses on people that makes them imagine all those things happening with them, although it doesn't happen in reality. And McKamey films everything as proof so that the authorities don't question him later. So, despite all the warnings and people repeatedly saying "you really don't want to do this"; if you still feel that this haunted house is for you, then all you need is a few bags of dog food for McKamey's five dogs.
  9. Let me begin by asking a question. Do you invest your income? If so, how much return do you generate yearly? 12 percent mostly? Or maybe 15% if you are really adept at investing, right? Ashish Gupta, an early angel investor in Flipkart got a return of 130 times over his money in just 9 years. That's a staggering 13,000 percent return over the initial investment. How's that for investing? © Twitter Gupta is a well-known angel investor who is quite popular for picking the best bets amongst the lot of new and hip startups. Ashish Gupta has himself been an entrepreneur having sold his company Junglee to Amazon in 2018 for roughly $240 million. He has since then invested in various startups which have earned him incredible riches over the years. Although Flipkart has been a great investment for Ashish Gupta, this is not his biggest win to date. He had earlier invested in MuSigma at an early stage and then made a killing when he exited by making close to $50 million. © Twitter “Ashish is one of the best investors I've ever met, both from an institutional and angel perspective. He's usually 5-7 years ahead of the curve when it comes to betting on ideas. He likes to focus more on underlying trends than on what is happening right now. Most importantly, Ashish likes to genuinely help entrepreneurs and founders and work with them—and he doesn't do it for money,” Rahul Chowdhri, a partner at Stellaris Venture Partners told Livemint. Gupta's other investments included MakeMyTrip, Minjar, and Merittrac. While some might say Gupta's a smart investor, his credentials prove that he takes calculated risks and evaluates every aspect of the business before making a decision. He has a Ph.D. from Stanford University and a degree in Computer Science from IIT-Kanpur. After selling his venture Junglee, he worked for some time in Amazon which incidentally later became the biggest competitor of Flipkart in India.
  10. Who would have thought that a company set up just 10 years ago could fetch a cash deal of $16 billion and truly shake up the Indian startup ecosystem? Sachin and Binny Bansal's Flipkart just did that after Walmart acquired a 77% stake in the e-commerce giant. With this investment in India, Walmart will now directly compete with Amazon in what is being pegged as a $200 billion market by 2026. But nobody could have thought it was possible and especially not Binny and Sachin Bansal who quit their jobs at Amazon in 2007 and decided to sell books online for a living. It was a simpler time in terms of how much the internet had affected our day to day lives and online shopping was a luxury not many could afford. And still, on a hunch, they started Flipkart from a small apartment in Bangalore with an initial investment of Rs. 4,00,000 ($6,500). © Twitter While many dream of a start-up, only a few are willing to work for it and Sachin and Binny Bansal never shied away from hard work. During the initial days of Flipkart, they used to deliver the books themselves on a scooter all across Bangalore. As the orders started trickling in – growing from 7-8 in a week to 100's of orders in a day just one year into the game, Sachin and Binny knew that they were on the right track and now needed to scale it in order to grow. © Facebook As the business grew, interest amongst investors grew too. Flipkart got its first funding from Accel partners who invested $1 million back in 2008. Flipkart, therefore, opened its first office in the same year and hired one full-time employee Ambur Iyyappa, who's also now a millionaire. Also, the investment by Accel partners eventually earned them a 400x return in just eight years. In its short history, Flipkart faced a lot of competition from the Indian arm of world's biggest online retailer, Amazon. “After surpassing Flipkart in 2016 for the first time (in metropolitan user preference), Amazon strengthened its position as metropolitan Indian consumers' preferred online retail destination and is aggressively closing the gap with Flipkart to become the single-largest online retailer in India in terms of sales,” Forrester in a report, titled 'Online Retail Forecast (2017-2022) Asia Pacific', said. © Facebook Sachin and Binny Bansal, after the sale to Walmart, are now multi-billionaires. However, their incredible journey to make Flipkart successful will serve as an inspiration to the next generation of Indian entrepreneurs who are just beginning to come up.
  11. ANKARA/ISTANBUL: Turkey?s first nuclear power plant is likely to miss its 2023 target start-up date as Russian builder Rosatom struggles to find local partners, two people familiar with the matter said. The $20 billion project is part of President Tayyip Erdogan?s ?2023 vision? marking 100 years since the founding of modern Turkey. Rosatom is looking at four Turkish companies as possible partners, but little progress has been made so far, said one of the sources, both of whom declined to be identified because the information is not yet public. Rosatom said last month it was in talks with state-owned power producer EUAS after a deal with a consortium of three firms collapsed. ?Concrete progress has not been made in the talks so far, and this includes EUAS from the government side,? one source said, adding that Rosatom was keen to have a government entity such as EUAS as a shareholder. Rosatom is looking for Turkish partners to take a 49 percent stake in the planned Akkuyu nuclear plant in southern Turkey. But the government is wary of EUAS taking on the 49 percent stake by itself. ?A 49 percent stake still means $10 billion of funding even if it?s spread over years,? the source said. ?It is a very big project, there are many details and issues that need to be worked on. We can?t expect this to be resolved soon.? The project is to be financed by Rosatom and its partners and will involve loans from export-import agencies and banks, Anastasia Polovinkina, director of Rosatom affiliate Rusatom Energy International told a conference in June 2017. FINANCING The 4,800 megawatt Akkuyu plant is a intended to reduce Turkey?s dependence on energy imports but has been beset by delays since Russia was awarded the contract in 2010. But Turkish companies have been put off by the size of the financing required as well as by concerns they will not receive a sufficient share of the lucrative construction side of the deal, two industry sources said. The firms are also worried that the guaranteed electricity price could eventually be lowered, reducing future revenue, they said. Rosatom did not respond to a request for comment. Officials for EUAS and the government declined to comment. Rosatom last year said it would sell 49 percent of Akkuyu Nukleer AS, the company which will build and operate the plant, to a consortium made up of Kolin Insaat, Kalyon Insaat and Cengiz Holding - Turkish firms that have been awarded major infrastructure projects under Erdogan. However, the final agreement was never signed and Rosatom said Kolin and Kalyon had decided to pull out of the project. Cengiz remains as a contractor and Rosatom said last month that the two were in talks regarding other ?partnership options?. Rosatom has said it expects to find new investors for the project this year, adding that could be a single investor for the entire 49 percent or several firms taking smaller stakes. At a November news conference with Erdogan, Russian President Vladimir Putin re-affirmed the 2023 launch for the plant?s first reactor, and said construction would begin in the near future. However, Rosatom has still not received a full construction licence from Turkey?s atomic energy authority. ?Construction time for the plant is seven years. Even if it receives the licence today, the 2023 target is not very realistic,? one of the sources familiar with the matter said.
  12. Virtual currency bitcoin hit another all-time peak on Tuesday, two days after the launch of the first ever bitcoin futures on a US exchange and ahead of the start of another futures contract next week, as investors grew optimistic that the $20,000-mark is within reach. On Sunday, Chicago-based derivatives exchange Cboe Global Markets launched bitcoin futures, enabling investors to get exposure to the currency via a large, regulated exchange. The CME Group is expected to launch its futures contract on Dec. 17. ?We?re going to see bitcoin emerge as a payment network,? said Trevor Koverko, chief executive officer of Polymath, a securities token platform. ?Currently bitcoin is being used as a speculative asset and store of value. But as scaling solutions...emerge, bitcoin?s utility dramatically increases along with its price,? Koverko said. Bitcoin, the world's biggest and best-known cryptocurrency, was quoted at $17,310 on the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp exchange BTC=BTSP, up 5.1 percent on the day. Earlier on Tuesday bitcoin hit a record high of $17,428.42, registering a roughly 20-fold increase in its price for the year as it drew in millions of new investors. A Reuters technical analysis that measures the ups and downs in trading prices, known as waves, showed bullish momentum for bitcoin. The technical analysis suggests an extension of a wave, which could mean that bitcoin would easily surge above the psychologically important level of $20,000, according to the Reuters analysis. ?It?s remarkable how back in November $10,000 seemed like a psychological end-of-year target,? said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. ?With the current gravity-defying bullish momentum, it may be no surprise if bitcoin concludes 2017 on $20,000. But as bitcoin set a new record, digital currency exchange operators Coinbase and Bitfinex reported problems with service through their websites on Tuesday, frustrating traders seeking to cash in on the latest surge in the value of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The newly launched one-month bitcoin futures on the Cboe Futures Exchange were slightly tepid, with prices generally steady and volumes about a third of those seen on Monday. Bitcoin futures maturing in January XBTF8 were at $18,450, with just 1,416 contracts traded as of late afternoon in New York, compared with 3,956 contracts on the first day. A total of $26.4 million was notionally traded so far on Tuesday, compared with around $73 million on Monday. ?The trading volume was huge yesterday as bitcoin price fluctuated in a wide range over the weekend,? said Park Nok-sun, a cryptocurrency analyst at NH Investment and Securities in Seoul. ?Now that the exchange price is relatively calm, it is obvious for futures trading volume to fall.? While market participants are still heavily divided over the digital currency?s utility, value and safety, they expect the futures contract to offer a legitimate means for institutions to bet on bitcoin. Some investors even expect the futures will offer markets an easier means to take short positions on the cryptocurrency. The futures are cash-settled contracts based on the auction price of bitcoin in US dollars on the Gemini Exchange, which is owned and operated by virtual currency entrepreneurs Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss.
  13. Okay, what is it with people spending tons of money just to look like someone else? Where do they get the money? Also, being someone's fan is one thing, but literally altering your whole appearance just to look like your favourite actor is a little too much. Imitation may be the biggest form of flattery, but don't you think that actually getting surgery to look like someone else is going a little overboard? Apparently, a lot of people disagree, and that's why we hear about someone or the other trying to emulate their favourite star on a weekly basis it seems. First, it was Sahar Tabar from Iran, who spent apparently got over 50 surgeries trying to look like Angelina Jolie, but resembled 'Corpse Bride' more than the star. And now, a pair of twins from Arizona are here to give her some competition. Actually, they can't beat her. She is honestly the best worst celebrity look alike, but at least other can try. © Twitter/Sahar Tabar Twin brothers Matt and Mike Schlepp have reportedly spent $20,000 on cosmetic surgery to look like Brad Pitt when they were just 19-years old. The aspiring actors appeared on MTV's 'I Want A Famous Face' and spent months going through painful procedures and all the operations left them unable to even eat properly. But, who needs to eat when you can look like Brad Pitt, right? The painful process involved Mike getting a nose job, cheek, jaw and chin implants, while Matt had a nose job and a chin implant, and between both brothers they had 41 porcelain veneers. With so many surgeries, they sure are giving serious competition to the whole Kardashian clan. Matt and Mike before the surgery: © MTV But, at least it was worth it to them. Or, maybe more than worth it, as Matt said. While on the show, Matt said, “It was more than worth it. I would do it ten times over. It has definitely helped me get more girls. I'll walk and get that double-take from girls and hear the whispering that follows.” He went on, “I've had such a dramatic change that girlfriends I hadn't seen in a while couldn't stop staring, and said they wanted to cry! If that doesn't make you feel good, then what would?” And the brothers after all the painful procedures: © MTV Mike added, “I never knew that I could be as happy as I am right now. I feel on top of the world by the few tweaks that I went through. Go through with the surgery now because you don't want to go through life always feeling down with the way that you look.” I don't see the resemblance to Brad Pitt, but maybe that's just me. Not to sound too insensitive, but to me, they look more like 'Beavis and Butt-Head' than the actor. © MTV But, oh well. If they're happy with it, then good for them.
  14. It was August 2008 when SpaceX's third rocket launch failed (in succession) and it almost drove Elon Musk to complete bankruptcy. But, this Wednesday was a totally different one. Elon had his name marked as the 12th ‘Richest in Tech(which ranks the 100 wealthiest self-made tech billionaires)' person as per Forbes latest list. That is the result of sheer will and persistence. ©New Scientist Forbes also released its list of The World's Billionaires this year in March and counted his net worth to be $13.9 billion. And according to the latest list, his net worth is now more than $20 billion. A whopping increase of $6.1 billion in just 5 months. Isn't that crazy? Well, much of this increase can be attributed to the latest funding ($350 million) raised by SpaceX last month at a valuation of about $21 billion. And to no surprise, SpaceX's CEO, Musk owns more than half of the shares. So the logic seems obvious. This positive parabolic curve of the aerospace firm, SpaceX makes Musk's will of sending humans to Mars looks quite promising. Also, he has recently confirmed that the company will send humans to space as early as next year. Let's look at the recent achievements of SpaceX and Tesla (Musk's electric car company) that made this exponential curve of a sum for Musk: -In March, they sent a cargo payload into orbit with a previously-used rocket. Yeah, they did it. Also, making it the first private company to do so. -The company is soon rolling out a new, lower-priced vehicle, the Model 3. That's a good sign. No? Musk recently shared the first images of a SpaceX spacesuit and how Space Factory looks when seen from Space, on his personal Instagram page. ©New Scientist ©Instagram/elonmusk Don't know if any other entrepreneur has ever been so futuristic with his startups. SpaceX, PayPal, Tesla, Hyperloop, SolarCity, OpenAI, The Boring Company, Neuralink, Zip2. What's not on the list? Seriously. Talking about the list, Paul Allen who is known for co-founding Microsoft alongside Bill Gates, and is now worth $20.5 billion. Eric Schmidt, Google's parent company Alphabet's Executive Chairman is now worth $12.4 billion.
