  1. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston snagged the spotlight away from all of Hollywood after they had a mini reunion at the SAG Awards on Sunday. But it now looks like the former flames may be toying with our feelings and tucking at our heartstrings by teasing their fans with a bit of what they have been desperately pleading for without any intention of an actual reunion. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the 50-year-old Friends actor was asked about the world’s obsession with her and Brad Pitt and their continuous prayers of seeing them back together. "It's hysterical,” said Jen, adding: “But what else are they going to talk about?" Earlier at the Golden Globes, Pitt too had addressed the same when he told Entertainment Tonight: "I'll run into Jen, she's a good friend. The second most important reunion of her year? I understand. That was a play on Friends. They were saying that.” The two stirred up a storm on Sunday after the SAG Awards as they gave the audience what they wanted by having a chirpy reunion backstage where they hugged it out and congratulated each other. Read More: Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt hug it out at the SAG Awards as they finally reunite Pitt also left us gushing when he dropped everything backstage to intently watch his ex-wife accept the award for her performance in The Morning Show.
  2. Disha Patani is not just a pretty face, she's got a head and heart too: Mohit SuriDisha Patani is one of the few faces in Bollywood known for their endless beauty. However, the 27-year-old Baaghi actor boasts of more than just a pretty face as her acting prowess is no less of a crowd-pleaser than her unmatched beauty. Nodding to that, is Indian director Mohit Suri who is working with the diva for his upcoming film Malang. Speaking about her skills, the filmmaker dished the details in an interview saying: “The whole world feels that Disha is just a pretty face and a hot body. She has something more in her. She’s got head and heart too.” "There is a perfect blend of glam quotient and bohemian vibe surrounding the character, both qualities which I could imagine Disha to compliment effortlessly. The response to Disha’s role has been great so far, I’m sure the audience will be able to connect with her even more after watching Malang,” he added.
  3. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari speaks about Kangana Ranaut and her composure in 'Panga'. Photo: The Indian ExpressAshwiny Iyer Tiwari recently opened up about her decision to choose Kangana Ranaut for her upcoming sports movie, Panga. Ashwiny recently revealed that Kangana Ranaut was in fact her very first choice when it came to playing the role of a retired sports player in Panga. In an attempt to reach the actress, Ashwiny sent Kangana a list of her films, and upon receiving the list, Kangana called the film maker, stating, “You need not update me on the work you have done, I know about you.” During an interview with the Times of India Ashwiny revealed that although Kangana always finds some way to land herself amidst controversy, she decided to not lose faith in her star. She was quoted saying, “If at all we have any misunderstanding, we (had decided that we) shall clarify it.” She also clarified how, with the long schedules that stars have to endure, it is only natural for them to have mood swings from time to time, however Kangana has been dubbed a superstar by the filmmaker, for she has a calm and cool aura about her, one which allows her to effortlessly maintain her composure.

  5. Rapper Dave and Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi lead the nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards // PHOTO: ReutersRapper Dave and Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi lead the nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards with four nods each, in a new, slimmed-down list of prizes at Britain’s top pop music honors. Both will contest the same categories at next month’s ceremony: male solo artist, best new artist, song of the year and Mastercard album of the year. Dave is in the running for his single Location and the album Psychodrama, for which he won the Mercury Prize last year. Capaldi was nominated for his chart-topping track Someone You Loved and his album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent. Organizers have previously said this year’s show, the 40th in a series that began in 1977, will feature fewer categories, allowing for more music to be performed on the night. They also said they would allow performing acts to “fully take the reins by encouraging them to create and curate performances unique to them”. Grime star Stormzy is nominated for best male solo artist as well as for his song Vossi Bop and album Heavy Is the Head. The nominees for male solo artist include Harry Styles, who first found fame in the boyband One Direction, and singer-songwriter Michael Kiwanuka. Both are also nominated for their albums Fine Line and Kiwanuka respectively. Mabel is nominated for her song Don’t Call Me Up, and also in the best female solo artist and best new artist categories. The other nominees for best female solo artist include singers Freya Ridings, FKA Twigs, Charli XCX and Mahalia. Coldplay, Foals, Bastille, D-Block Europe and Bring Me The Horizon will compete for group of the year. The song of the year contenders also include Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s I Don’t Care, Calvin Harris and Rag’n’Bone Man’s Giant, Nothing Breaks Like a Heart by Mark Ronson and featuring Miley Cyrus, AJ Tracey’s Ladbroke Grove, Tom Walker’s Just You and I and Dancing With A Stranger by Sam Smith and Normani. Competing to be best international male solo artist are Bruce Springsteen, Burna Boy, Post Malone, Dermot Kennedy and Tyler, the Creator. Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Camila Cabello, Lana Del Rey and Lizzo are in the running for best international female solo artist. Singer Celeste has already been announced as the winner of the BRIT Rising Star award. The award ceremony takes place in London on February 18.
  6. LONDON: Discussions regarding future plans for Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are progressing well and should conclude within days not weeks, a royal source said on Saturday. The couple, officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, blindsided the rest of the royal family on Wednesday by unexpectedly announcing they would be stepping back from their roles to spend more time in North America and earn an income. They did not consult Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, or other members of the royal family before making their surprise announcement on a new website, https://sussexroyal.com. Officials spent Friday holding behind-the-scenes meetings about new arrangements for Harry and Meghan and things were progressing well, according to the royal source, who added that the aim was to reach agreement within days. The source said officials had consulted the British and Canadian governments about the issue of the couple’s future. Meghan is in Canada with the couple’s baby son, Archie, and she and Harry are reported to be considering basing themselves in that country. Separately, the London Times newspaper reported that Meghan, a former TV actress, had agreed to record a voiceover for Disney in return for the company making a donation to a charity that works to protect elephants. The Times gave no details about what Meghan’s voiceover would involve, but said Disney would make a donation to the charity Elephants Without Borders. The newspaper did not say where the information had come from. An official spokeswoman at Buckingham Palace had no immediate comment on the report. Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
  7. Barely five days after winning the 'Best Actor' award at the Golden Globes, Joaquin Phoenix has made headlines yet again for getting arrested at fellow actor Jane Fonda's climate change protest at Capitol Hill, Washington D.C. The actor was invited to the weekly protests - which aimed to raise awareness for the cause through a civil disobedience movement. Phoenix went onstage in front of around 300 people, giving them the following address. The speech was short and unplanned with Phoenix choosing to highlight the importance of food choices and the hand of America's meat and dairy industry as a significant contributor to the ongoing global warming crisis. “Sometimes we wonder what can we do in this fight against climate change, and there is something that you can do today and tomorrow, by making a choice about what you consume,” Phoenix said. “There are things I can't avoid. I flew a plane here today, or last night rather, but one thing I can do is change my eating habits,” he added. Despite the well-meaning sentiment, reactions on social media were largely mixed. Some criticised Phoenix for being unspecific and somewhat inaccurate about his message. Climate change is real but get your facts straight in what the largest contributors to it are!!! — Clint Ellis (@ClintEllis9) January 11, 2020 While others called him out for using a private jet to fly into D.C. - a practice that he criticised just this week during his Golden Globes speech - "We don't have to take private jets to Palm Springs for the awards — and back," Phoenix had said. ...after lecturing ppl for flying to climate change events, Phoenix flies from CA to DC to get arrested at a CLIMATE EVENT. Terrible #duplicity #Hypocrite — IntegrityCounts (@3mdive) January 10, 2020 While most of them criticised Phoenix I can't stop commenting everytime I see this today. He is absolutely out of his mind — Accountant4trump (@Acountant4Trump) January 10, 2020 Let me know when these woke actors go and protest the pollution in China and India. I'll wait. — Tony Semeraro (@Redeemed54) January 10, 2020 They flew in to get arrested. And will fly back on private jets...but okay whatever gets you thru the day. — Maureen (@maureen7579) January 10, 2020 Some shared their commiserations We are arresting people for protesting? — Benjamin Bradshaw (@benjbradshaw) January 10, 2020 freedom to protest ha — r/Sino (@SinoReddit) January 10, 2020 Besides Phoenix, veteran Hollywood star Martin Sheen also turned up for the protest and got arrested by the police. Actors Maggie Gyllenhaal and Susan Sarandon were also present. The actors and around 147 others were detained by the police for 'crowding, obstructing or incommoding' - all of them were later released. View the full article
  8. Samsung has already confirmed that the company will be hosting its “Unpacked” launch event on February 11, 2020. It is usually the time when Samsung announces new Galaxy S phones and this year the Galaxy S20 is expected to launch. A previous leak suggested that the Galaxy S11 will probably be called Galaxy S20 and we can expect three models this year from the South Korean giant. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We kind of have an idea that the Galaxy S20 will feature some of the latest specifications thanks to a recent leak put together by Phone Arena which details every single piece of information about the three upcoming smartphones. In the below image, the three phones that will be launching are the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra. © Phone Arena The Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the first Samsung phone to sport a periscope zoom camera which will be an exclusive feature for the handset. The Galaxy S20 is also expected to launch on March 6, if this leak by Phone Arena is to be believed. At the moment, Phone Arena's information cannot be verified, which is why we advise you to take this leak with a pinch of salt. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Pricing for the three smartphones also leaked, revealing a $799 price tag for the S20, $999 for S20+ and $1,099 for the S20 Ultra. The Indian prices for the smartphones are expected to be different as Samsung tends to price it a bit lower in India, thanks to the presence of their manufacturing units in the country. We will learn more about the three units closer to the reveal event where the prices and the launch date will be officially announced. Source: Phone Arena View the full article
  9. If you're a Star Wars fan, it's likely that you'll remember the iconic twin suns of Tatooine: Cool, aren't they? A young intern at NASA however, has just discovered a new planet - where you might be able to spot the greatest sunrise of all time - with two suns at once. The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite, also known as TESS, is a specialised space telescope that was launched into orbit by SpaceX in 2018 with the specific purpose of discovering exoplanets. The term refers to planets outside of the solar system, and as you might imagine, they're not particularly easy to spot. © NASA; An illustration of TESS working in orbit. The most common method of discovering them is locating dark spots in front of distant stars - caused by planets revolving around their respective stars and blocking their light from reaching us. This phenomenon is known as a 'transit', and TESS is able to detect them by using four powerful cameras to capture 1296 images of the same patch of sky across 27 days - that's a single hi-res image every half-hour. © NASA; Optics engineer Greg Balonek prepares a TESS flight lens for modal testing at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. The intern, Wolf Cukier, joined NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, after his junior year of high school at Scarsdale High School in New York. He was assigned to study variations in star brightness captured by TESS and upload it to the Planet Hunters TESS citizen science project. © New York Post; Wolf sitting at his desk in a NASA jumper. Note the physics textbooks and telescope - he's clearly in the perfect line of work. "I was looking through the data for everything the volunteers had flagged as an eclipsing binary, a system where two stars circle around each other and from our view eclipse each other every orbit," Cukier said in a statement from NASA. "About three days into my internship, I saw a signal from a system called TOI 1338. At first I thought it was a stellar eclipse, but the timing was wrong. It turned out to be a planet." What's remarkable about Cukier's discovery is that the planet is 'circumbinary' - revolving around two suns instead of one like in the solar system. There are only about two dozen such planets discovered, making the intern's fortunate finding all the more special. Designated as TOI 1338 b, it is the only planet in the TOI 1338 system and revolves around the twin suns every 95 days - both of them revolve around each other much faster at 15 days and are considerably different from each other. One is 10% larger than our Sun, while the other is just a third of the Sun's mass, and is much dimmer and smaller. If you're looking to catch that special sunset however, it's quite unlikely - the system is 1,300 light years away from Earth, and is 6.9 times the size of our planet - making it likely that even if we survive the journey and the harsh radiation and heat from two suns, TOI 1338 b's gravity is likely to crush us like a grape. Unfortunately for Wolf, he doesn't get to name his discovery - although his brother suggests that 'Wolftopia' would be pretty cool. View the full article
  10. A new Assassin's Creed is probably on its way and the existence of the game was leaked via website listings. Ubisoft has not officially announced the game but leaks are pointing towards one of the biggest games in the series. The game listed on the websites was called Assassin's Creed Ragnarok and is expected to release later this year. © Ubisoft A leak that was posted on 4Chan and later on Reddit revealed detailed information that sounds believable but we still suggest you take it with a pinch of salt. According to the leaker, the game will launch in September 2020 and will be a cross-generational game. It will support four-player co-operative mode or with a single character that can be either male or female. It is said to have role-playing mechanics similar to Assassin's Creed Odyssey and will also introduce a new weapon durability feature. The game will also feature a hidden blade, an iconic feature that was not included in the previous iteration. © Reddit Leaks also suggest that the game will be set in the 9th century and will deal with Norse mythology. The map is also expected to be larger than ever and will expand to cities like Paris, London and Kiev. There will also be more emphasis on mythical beasts that will be protecting temples and other key locations. Previous Assassin's Creed games have leaked in the past and most of the rumours have turned out to be true. It would be interesting to see how Ubisoft will adopt Norse mythology into the Assassin's Creed world. We could expect the game to be announced sometime later this year. We may hear more about the game at E3, this June. View the full article
  11. A fan reveals her experiences with Adele and Harry StylesOn Adele's and Harry Styles vacation, the pair not only enjoyed themselves, but made the day of a couple of fans who dropped in on them by chance. Lexi Larson was the lucky 19-year-old from Massachusetts, who got the surprise of her lifetime in Anguilla. When the young girl walked towards Blanchards Restaurant and Beach Shack for dinner on January 3, she was mesmerised seeing Harry Styles dining at the table nearby, however the surprise got even better after Adele walked in. The girl reiterated her experience to PEOPLE, stating, “A few minutes later, Adele came over and sat down next to me and my friend and was like, ‘So what can I do for you girls?'” She went on to say, “We were so excited. We were talking to her for a little while, and then she got Harry Styles to come over and sit with us also. We took a picture with Harry, and we talked to them for 15 minutes probably.” The young fan, who is a student of psychology at the Elton University stated that they all “talked about life and college and what me and my friend wanted to do.” “They were more asking us questions,” she revealed. “It was a really positive experience. It was really cool.” Larson revealed that at first her friends and she barely recognized Adele due to her slimmer frame and chiseled features. “She said she lost something like 100 pounds, and that it’s such a crazy positive experience,” she says. “She seemed so happy, and she looked amazing. She seemed really confident.” Larson was able to mark her luckiest day with a picture with Harry Styles, however Adele had to decline the request because she was with her young son and she didn't want the extensive media attention her way, for the sake of her son. “She said no because she didn’t want a lot of paparazzi at the moment or anything to get too crazy with her kid,” Larson recalled.

  12. Hrithik Roshan on trusting his instincts and work experiences.Photo: BizAsia Hrithik Roshan recently amassed a bout of fame which helped him rise to the top of the industry's pyramid. During an interview with Hindustan Times, Hrithik Roshan went on to talk about his experiences and time within the industry. He was quoted as saying, “I am loving this phase of my career. It feels like the journey has just begun." The star reminisced about his journey and successes so far, stating, "Each year, and with every film, there has been so much of learning." He continued on, revealing how his confidence and belief within himself begins to strengthen with each passing day, "But it is only in the last couple of years that I have started feeling more assured as an actor." "There is some sort of composure now and I trust my instincts more than ever. I don’t feel the need to be as meticulous about what I’m going to do for a particular shot and rather just let it all flow. It is a different feeling altogether," he added. Speaking in regards to his future plans within the industry, almost 10 years down the line, Hrithik revealed, "A decade is a long time and one’s thoughts and goals would either change or evolve during this time period. Having said that, an ideal target to achieve would always be to have a healthy balance between doing quality work and spending enough time with my family."
  13. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt became the talk of the town after they were sighted at the prestigious Golden Globes’ award ceremony side by side this year, seated at tables only feet apart. However, the former couple did not really make an appearance together at the glitzy award night and left their fans craving for more. To treat their fans today, we stumbled upon an old video of the former flames attending the Golden Globes together, and supporting each other in taking home the coveted award. The video dates back to 2003, two years prior to when Jen and Brad called it quits on their marriage. It shows the loving husband cheering his ladylove on, as her name gets called out amongst the nominations for 'Best Actress TV Series Musical or Comedy' category for her role in hit sitcom Friends. As Jen beat actresses like Sarah Jessica Parker and various others, an elated and gleeful Brad looked at her from the audience as she delivered her acceptance speech. An overwhelmed and speechless Jen began by thanking her co-stars, “I have to thank these five people; Matthew Perry, David Shwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc. I love you guys. You started out as my colleagues, and you are my friends, and you are my family,” she said. Jen added, "This wouldn't be even happening if it was not from what I learn from you guys everyday," while paying tribute to the creators and writers of the show too. “I love my job,” Jen ended her speech as Brad applauded from the audience with a warm smile on his face.

  15. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stunned Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family this week by saying they plan to spend much of their time in N America. Photo: File TORONTO: Canadian taxpayers could be on the hook for millions of dollars a year in security expenses if Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan move there, even part time, as they step away from their royal duties, security experts said. The couple, formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, stunned Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family this week by saying they plan to spend much of their time in North America. While the pair have not said where in North America they planned to reside, many observers pointed to Canada as a logical choice. The couple spent the last six weeks of 2019 in that nation, part of the British Commonwealth of countries that have the queen as their head of state. The Canadian government would likely have a legal obligation to provide them with security because of their royal status, security experts said. “I don’t believe they can refuse the government of Canada’s security,” said Larry Busch, an ex-Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officer who directed security for world leaders including U.S. presidents and the royal family. Read also: Prince Harry, Meghan Markle to step away from royal family in shock move The cost could easily run into the millions of dollars, said Mike Zimet, whose eponymous New York executive security firm has protected clients including US Senator Bernie Sanders and actors Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alec Baldwin. “If they want private protection, then a whole machine needs to be built around them,” he said. The level of security they need would be defined by a threat assessment, said Joe Balz, president of GloProSec Preventative Services, a Toronto-based security company, and an ex-RCMP officer who has worked with the royal family and other heads of state in the past. “There’s always going to be the odd idiot who causes some type of problem,” Balz said, adding that they would be safer in Canada than in the United States, where gun laws are much laxer. Prince Harry and Meghan have said gaining financial autonomy is a key goal, but declined to say whether this extends to the cost of security, stating that their security detail is mandated by the British Home Office. Read also: Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's royal life departure sets the internet on fire They also would need to worry about kidnapping of their son, Archie, said Zimet, who called that threat a “major situation, especially when it comes to terrorists. Kidnap a kid, hold them for ransom, what are the parents going to do?” A poll for Canadian news company found that more than 60 per cent of the 1,515 Canadians surveyed would support the appointment of Prince Harry as governor general, the queen’s representative in Canada, who acts as the head of state on her behalf. The poll was conducted on January 6, two days before the couple announced their plan to move away from their senior royal roles.

  17. Selena Gomez on her love life and staying single: ‘I need time by myself’American vocal powerhouse Selena Gomez prior to her grand return to the world of music with her new album, has dropped some major bombs for her fans. In her latest interview with WSJ Magazine, the 27-year-old Lose You to Love Me hit maker is dishing the dirt about all the things in her life that remained away from the public eye. The interview, also featuring singer-songwriters Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, whom Selena collaborated with, revealed how the process of songwriting flowed for her. “Justin and I will go to the studio before [Gomez arrives] and gather ideas. I’ll text her to say, ‘What kind of mood are you in?’ One time she responded, ‘I’m feeling strong and happy,’ and then she said at the end of the text: ‘I really just want a boyfriend.’ I thought we should do a song about it. She got to the studio, and it all started flowing together,” said Julia. Explaining one of the tracks of Selena’s upcoming album Rare, titled I Want a Boyfriend, Justin explained: “One of the lyrics is about a fine line between a want and a need. Yes, she wants a boyfriend, but it’s not a need. She’s OK on her own, and we all should be too.” On the other hand, Selena during the interview revealed how she feels about being single since the past two years: “I need time by myself. I love going to my room at the end of the day. Just me and my dog. I got the full granny panties situation, stretched out in my bed.”
  18. RAWALPINDI: Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Bajwa Wednesday urged US Secretary of Defence Mr Dr. Mark T. Esper to "avoid rhetoric in favour of diplomatic engagement" as tensions between Tehran and Washington heighten after Iran's attack on military bases housing American soldiers in Iraq. A series of tweets by the DG ISPR on Twitter stated that the army chief received a phone call from Esper in which the two discussed tensions between Iran and the US that soared after the former retaliated over the killing of Al Quds commander Qassem Soleimani on Friday. The tweet by DG ISPR said Esper told Gen Bajwa that though the US did not want conflict it "will respond forcefully if necessary". The military's spokesperson tweeted that the army chief told the US defence secretary to pursue 'diplomatic engagement' instead of rhetoric. The army chief also told Esper that Pakistan would like to play its part in the Afghan reconciliation process so that it does not get derailed and "the region goes towards conflict resolution instead of new conflicts". Qassem Soleimani killed in US strike on BaghdadTop Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani was killed last week in a US strike on Baghdad´s international airport. The Pentagon had said US President Donald Trump ordered Soleimani's "killing," after a pro-Iran mob this week laid siege to the US embassy. Declaring three days of mourning across the country, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed to take "severe revenge" for Soleimani´s death. The US had acted in response to a rocket attack days earlier that had killed an American contractor working in Iraq.

  20. With the success of Ghost Stories and a couple of more ambitious projects in her bag, Janhvi Kapoor is currently on cloud nine as she officially entered the '2020 will be my year' club. She maybe only two projects old, but she's already proved that she's here for the long run. Recently, the Dhadak actress graced the cover of iDiva and had what can be called an honest conversation about herself, her stardom, people's expectations from her, her strategy of dealing with social media trolls and her idea of an ideal man. While the rumours of Ishaan and Janhvi float on social media once in a while, Janhvi just revealed who her ideal man is. When asked about who she will kill, marry and date; she conveniently dodged the options of 'kill' and 'date' but she did reveal who she wants to marry.

I think I would be happy if I married him. He's super cute and I also think he has a great sense of humour which is very important." Take notes, guys, take notes! Every time people talk about star kids, they assume that things are pretty easy for them, they don't have to work that hard to stick around in the industry. Well, that maybe true but so is the fact that they sometimes have to work extra hard to prove that they can survive even without their family name. Janhvi said, "I think of it as a responsibility. My family, my mom in particular, got so much love and appreciation from the audience. As a consequence, I have also got some of that love. I now have to work doubly hard to prove that I deserve it, on my own, also." She further said that she's not vying for stardom, she's here to do good work. While she has yet to learn a lot about movies, she's cracked one thing - dealing with social media trolls which is not everyone's cup of tea. Janhvi has been a constant target for trolls on social media, who seem to be always looking for reasons to take a dig at her. He pro-tip: she doesn't care.

In the beginning it was really weird, but I have gotten used to the social media hate. I am just trying to be as authentic as possible," said Janhvi who has 7.1 million followers on Instagram. She further added, "I don't care if you think I am wearing too much makeup, even though I am not. If you think my gym shorts are too short, then you probably don't sweat on your legs as much as I do. I am sorry, my sweat glands work like that. You probably don't work out as much as I do." On the work front, she is currently working on Takht, Dostana 2 and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.

  21. Have you ever noticed that during winter a perfume is less noticeable? It's an unknown fact that perfumes don't linger on for long in winter and that's due to the drop in temperatures. Your body's natural moisture level causes the skin to get drier. When it's dry, it is merely impossible for your perfume to last which is why people with oily skin are benefitted here. But, even then, there are ways to combat this issue and not let anyone go 'nose blind', irrespective of the season. Here are four best ways to ensure that your fragrance lasts longer than ever, especially in winter: 1. Pick Heavy Fragrances Summer is for light ephemeral fragrances but for winter, they are an absolute no-no. You need to opt for heavier scents since your skin will be comparatively dry. Picking a scent that is heavier is one of the best ways to smell good all day long. © iStock 2. Pay Attention To Notes The base notes of perfumes are very important in winter. Being the heaviest part as compared to middle and top notes, having a good base note is necessary. Choose perfumes like sandalwood, patchouli or vanilla as they are common for winter. If you like some other heavy fragrance, you can lay your hands on that as well. © iStock 3. Picking A Category Think about spicy winter perfumes that have a strong fragrance of cinnamon, cardamon etc. They mainly fall in the oriental perfume category. The fragrance is rich and quite exotic that will definitely last all day long. Need more? Try woody or earthy fragrances. They are a good choice and will let you reminisce of beautiful winter days. Try labdanum or oakmoss as they hydrate the skin with their gentle texture. © iStock 4. Shopping For A Fragrance Scents work differently on every skin. A perfume that smells good on your friend may not necessarily react the same way on your skin. To properly shop for it, you need to try it out. The simplest way to begin is to leave your house without any sort of scent. © iStock Next, you can check the fragrance on four different places, left wrist, right wrist, and both elbows. Take notes on how the fragrance develops with time. If the fragrance fades then the fragrance is not for you. But if it's still active even after a couple of hours, you know you have found a winner.

  22. The much-awaited trailer of Himesh Reshammiya's Happy Hardy and Heer is finally out and we know who're the people really excited about this one - meme makers. The trailer begins with internet sensation Ranu Mondal singing Teri Meri Kahani which shows Happy (Himesh Reshammiya) and Heer (Sonia Mann) appearing to be madly in love, although the truth is Happy has actually been friend-zoned. Heer then ends up falling in love with Hardy, who's basically a sunglass-wearing stylish musician version of Himesh. Wow, so much in the name of true love! © Pooja Entertainment This 2-minute trailer features Himesh Reshammiya in a double role where one Himesh, wearing turbans, fights the stylish Himesh, because let's accept it; if there's anyone better than Himesh, it's Himesh himself. Both of them are fighting hard to win the girl's heart and literally NO ONE, throughout the trailer, is going to be curious or shocked about why they look like a carbon copy of each other. Maybe that's the mystery they'll solve in the movie? Honestly, we're now excited and waiting for honest reviews from memesters. Directed by Raka and produced by Deepshikha Deshmukh, Happy Hardy and Heer was earlier expected to release on January 3, but it will now hit the theatres on January 31. View the full article
  23. Australia's Marnus Labuschagne. Photo: AFPAustralia's Marnus Labuschagne has joined the stars of world cricket in just five months, soaring to fourth in the batting rankings from a nondescript 110th after seizing a freak opportunity with both hands. Labuschagne emerged from nowhere to become Test cricket's leading scorer last year with 1,104 runs, including 896 since November -- bettering the great Neil Harvey (834) for most runs scored by an Australian in a five-Test summer. The South African-born 25-year-old now shares rarefied air with cricket's elite, lagging only Virat Kohli, Steve Smith and Kane Williamson in the international rankings. "I haven't really had a chance to stop and reflect on the summer that I have had," Labuschagne said after his double century against New Zealand last week in Sydney. "Looking at it, it has been a very special summer but the real privilege is playing in this team." None of this may have happened if Labuschagne had not grabbed his chance as a concussion substitute during Australia's Ashes campaign in England last August. It was during the second Test at Lord's when master Australian batsman Smith was felled by a vicious bouncer off England paceman Jofra Archer in the second innings. Smith's departure opened the way for Labuschagne to become the first concussion substitute in a Test match after a change in the International Cricket Council's regulations. He made the most of his opportunity, reeling off four consecutive half-centuries and finishing the Ashes series with 353 runs at 50.42 -- even earning comparisons with the stellar Smith. If Labuschagne's career took off during the Ashes, it has rocketed into the stratosphere this Australian summer. He peeled off two centuries against Pakistan, finishing the two-Test series with 347 runs at 173.50, and he was at another level against the Black Caps. The gum-chewing number three scored 143 in Perth before reaching his highest Test score of 215 in the third Test in Sydney. Captaincy calling "People like Marnus, you see someone with incredible work ethic, incredible hunger to get better, very coachable and incredible energy," said Australia coach Justin Langer, who plucked Labuschagne from relative obscurity to play for the national team. "He brings so much to the team, not just batting and bowling." Such has been Labuschagne's growing profile that Australia batting great Ricky Ponting has tagged him as a potential future Test captain. "Labuschagne is one that will come into the conversation in 12-18 months' time once he's properly established himself in the team," Ponting said. "He seems like the right sort of guy to maybe be a captain down the track at some point." Another former Australia captain Greg Chappell says Labuschagne has the temperament and technique to become one of Australia's best number three batsmen alongside Ponting, Don Bradman and himself. "He has always had a solid technique and shots on both sides of the wicket," Chappell said. "He is looking to score runs. He is not looking to survive. "He is always looking to get a single, looking to get off strike, looking for the bad ball... they are the traits that I have seen in nearly 70 years of watching cricket that the good players have." Labuschagne has been an avid watcher of team-mate Steve Smith's quirky batting technique and has adopted his extravagant 'light sabre leave', mimicking Smith's flourish after leaving the ball outside off-stump. Labuschagne understands the rich history of batting greats Australia has had coming in at one wicket down, declaring the role had been a "pinnacle one for Australia and there is a lot that comes with that". "The standard is so high. For me, it's about upholding that standard," he said. "That is making sure I am sticking to the process and trusting my game and not trying to be anyone else -- making that position mine in my own way."
  24. We've all seen fake Nintendo Switch's out in the wild; however, a new portable gaming PC machine by Dell/Alienware was announced at CES today. It looks, works and has the same concept as the Nintendo Switch, but on steroids. It's called Alienware Concept UFO and is currently just at the prototype stage but looks like a finished product ready for commercial sale. It is probably the quintessential portable gaming PC we've all wanted, re-imagined Nintendo Switch style. © Twitter_LaptopMag Just like the Nintendo Switch, it has a tablet where one can slide in two controllers similar to the Joy-Cons on the Switch. However, the design of the controllers and the body of the UFO is slightly different than the Switch. It comes with two analog sticks, a D-Pad and four action buttons on the front of the device. On the top, there are the triggers and shoulder buttons similar to an Xbox One game controller. © Twitter_LaptopMag The main difference here is that the Alienware UFO concept runs on Windows 10 and will run PC games at a resolution of 1200p. This means a larger games library at a higher resolution than the Nintendo Switch. The portable gaming device also comes with its own kickstand and can also output to larger displays without the need of a dock. The Alienware UfO comes with two USB-C ports; one at the top and bottom which can be used to output video to other displays, charge the device and use wired controllers, keyboard and mouse. © Dell Dell has not detailed any of the components being used to power the Alienware UFO which could be a factor at determining the performance of the portable device. Due to which it is not possible to know the calibre of games it can run or what specifications are under the hood to figure out the graphics settings for each game. Sure, one cannot expect the Alienware UFO to deliver Desktop PC graphics but it would be interesting to see how much more powerful it is than the Nintendo Switch. We've already seen credible ports of games like Witcher 3, Elder Scrolls iV: Skyrim and Overwatch for the Nintendo Switch. It all depends on how well the games are optimised for the device and whether it can deliver a smooth lag-free experience. View the full article
  25. Samsung has been working on a new project called 'Neon' and the company been teasing it left, right and center on social media. From what it looks like, Neon appears to be some kind of a mysterious 'artificial human' project wherein we'll see digital humans. Obviously it's hard to tell what Samsung has been cooking for us behind the scene, but some of the latest teasers and leaked videos have made it easier for us to understand what's going on. A few hours back, the lead of Neon, computer-human interaction researcher Pranav Mistry, sent out a tweet saying that he's flying to CES 2020 in Las Vegas. The tweet was accompanied by an image showing one of the project's avatars. Mistry noted that their “Core R3” tech can now “autonomously create new expressions, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), completely different from the original captured data.” Flying to CES tomorrow, and the code is finally working :) Ready to demo CORE R3. It can now autonomously create new expressions, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), completely different from the original captured data. pic.twitter.com/EPAJJrLyjd — Pranav Mistry (@pranavmistry) January 5, 2020 Looking at Mistry's tweet, it certainly looks like they've built some kind of a digital avatar that can act as, say, your digital assistant or even beyond that. Not just his, but an unlisted video taken out from Neon's website also revealed even more similar human figures. You can watch the video below and see how real these digital humans look. They certainly don't look like computer-generated graphics. The video has left us with more questions than before. Are these computer-generated humans or are these real humans? Can they be programmed to do anything? Will we be able to talk to them? Will they stay on your computer and phones or will they be out in the real world in the form of a robot? Quite honestly, nobody has answers to those questions except Samsung. But thankfully, we won't have to wait too long since Samsung will be showcasing Neon at CES in less than 48 hours. So keep your eyes peeled. You might want to stay tuned for this one. View the full article
