  2. It seems like 2020 has even more bad news in store for us, as a new strain of flu that has the potential to become a global pandemic has been discovered by scientists in China. The virus is being carried by pigs and can infect humans, according to scientists. Researchers have expressed concern that the virus can further mutate and will easily spread from person to person, which could result in yet another global outbreak. The virus is not as big of a concern as COVID-19, however, scientists say it has all the necessary attributes required for it to mutate to infect humans and requires close monitoring. © Reuters It possesses âall the essential hallmarks of being highly adapted to infect humansâ, said the authors, scientists at Chinese universities and Chinaâs Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The findings of the virus were posted in a journal on Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It is worth to note that more than one in 10 swine workers have already been infected and tests indicate as many as 4.4% of the general population have already been exposed to the new virus. The virus has been given the name âG4â by the researchers. The researchers added in their report, âIt is of concern that human infection of G4 virus will further human adaptation and increase the risk of a human pandemic,â the researchers wrote. As the news broke, people on social media were clearly not happy about the new virus and shared their concerns: What is wrong with #China ?

  7. Oh, it has been a tough couple of days for Pakistan cricket, especially when it comes to their athletes addressing their fans or expressing their emotions publicly. Take former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi, for instance. The all-rounder who, after making his international debut way back in 1996, had spent the majority of his career amidst controversy and comments that did not fail to raise eyebrows. This is reality of secularism in Pakistan, TVs are broken for showing Hindu rituals & people applaud it pic.twitter.com/PXKcs5wcyf â Amit Kumar Sindhi ð®ð³ (@AMIT_GUJJU) December 28, 2019 While his performance with the white ball certainly made him one of the better leg-spinners in limited overs cricket, it was his ballistic âall-inâ batting that eventually went on to diminish his value globally. However, Afridi was well aware of this predicament and after retiring from international cricket in 2016, he became a lot more laid back in his approach towards talking about the game and himself. While he continues to play franchise cricket, and is a part of the Multan Sultans in the ongoing season of Pakistan Super League, Afridi decided to address his fans during a press conference and used his reputation as the impatient batsman to troll himself: How can you not love this guy? ï¸ #PSLV2020 pic.twitter.com/UqDZGG8E9N â Hassan (@iahassan9) February 22, 2020 âMain Zyada time nahi lena chahunga aapka, apni batting ki tarah,â he said, which translates into âI wonât be taking much of your time like I did when I batted.â The self-trolling came just a couple of days after wicket keeper-batsman, Umar Akmal made his life difficult by posting a tweet without proof-reading it. The 29-year-old cricketer took to Twitter and posted a picture along with former cricketer Abdul Razzaq and captioned it as, "Mother from another brother''. pic.twitter.com/hnX0HNqRh6 â Ibn Sina (@Ibne_Sena) February 19, 2020 In a tweet that has been deleted now, Akmal called former Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzak a âmother from another brotherâ, which converted into some really good meme material almost instantly.

  10. Kangana Ranaut on marriage: 'I don't have the energy to invest in another family'Kangana Ranaut after earlier hinting that she wishes to get hitched, has now expressed that marriage is not in the pipeline for her at this point. Upon being asked about her marriage plans, during the promotions of her film the 33-year-old actor told Mumbai Mirror how she feels about it at this stage of her life. “I’m at a phase when I’m just beginning to enjoy my life. If someone can add to it, I’m fine, but if, as a woman, I am expected to ensure he’s emotionally stable, enhance his spiritual growth, be lucky and bring him financial windfalls and take on the responsibility of a home, children and family, then, I’m not up for that,” she said. “At the moment, I have no time for people who come with any kind of baggage,” she added. Kangana also shared that a thriving career and her family are all that she has ever set her heart on. She also said that she has recently smoothed out her relationship with her family and is willing to invest her time in only making the ties stronger. She added: “The world is respectful; there’s a lot to do and give. And for the first time, I can think about myself. Let me be a little self-centered and enjoy what I have earned. I don’t have the time and energy to invest in another family. That can come later.” She further added that her career has played a massive role in pacifying the sour connection she had with her family as she left her house to be an actor when she was only 15. “Today, fortunately for me, I’ve got my family back. But I know that somewhere success had a huge role to play in the reconciliation. Had I not made it in films, I might have lost out on both my family and my dream, and that would have been devastating.” The Queen actor is fully engrossed in her promotions for her upcoming film Panga which is all set to hit the silver screens on January 24, 2020.

  12. People sitting around wooden fire to keep them warm during chilled weather in city. Photo: APP/M. Saeed Qureshi The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has predicted that there would be no rain for Karachi under the influence of a westerly disturbance which has caused widespread rain and snowfall in vast areas of Balochistan, reported The News. The metropolis has been gripped by a new cold wave due to cold and dry northwesterly winds over the last few days. “Karachi missed rain as a westerly disturbance passed Karachi by after causing heavy rains and snowfall in Balochistan, but cold weather has returned to Karachiites,” Chief Meteorological Officer Sardar Sarfraz said while speaking to The News. MET office official said Karachi’s weather, which had returned to normal a few days ago, would become cold again as chilly and dry winds from the northwesterly direction had started blowing again in the city. Read also: Freezing winds grip Karachi as winter cold intensifies Sarfraz added the cold wave was likely to continue for the next four days under the influence of Siberian winds. He added that temperature in the metropolis is likely to drop as low as eight °C on Wednesday night. “The mercury would drop during nights in the city while the daytime temperature would also remain low under the influence of northwesterly or Siberian winds,” Sarfraz said. The first day of the new year saw freezing winds grip the city as temperatures dropped to as low as 11°C. According to MET Office records, the lowest temperature recorded in the city was in January 1934, when the temperature dropped to zero degrees Centigrade. Earlier, the PMD had reported that the metropolis' cold spell was expected to intensify in January 2020. The warning had come after Karachi recorded its lowest temperature — at 9.2°C — in the current winter season on December 24. Prior to the current record, the city had recorded its lowest temperature this year at 9.5°C. Read also: Karachi shivers from coldest day of winter season 2019 as mercury drops to 9°C Record-breaking winterThe current winter season is on track to break records, as mercury in Peshawar dropped to a freezing -1°C after 36 years. Karachi, on the other hand, recorded its lowest (9.2°C), while Skardu reached a freezing -21°C in recent days.
  13. England's Rory Burns walks off after losing his wicket. Photo: Reuters In an age of sport science, expert physical conditioning and meticulous planning, watching Test cricketers clumsily kick a soccer ball around as they warm up defies belief. Not only because they look as if they are going hurt themselves, but because that is often what happens as their child-like enthusiasm for a kick-about clashes with the tenets of professional sport. The latest casualty is Rory Burns, England’s opening batsman who top scored in the first Test against South Africa but who will now return home with a serious ankle injury, missing out on the rest of the four-match series. He hurt ligaments on Thursday trying to kick the ball away as his captain Joe Root bore down on him. It came only 24 hours after Ollie Pope had taken angry exception to a crunching tackle from teammate Matt Parkinson that in a real game of football might have earned the leg spinner a red card. "If you look at what football does, the benefits from a psychological and fun point of view are outstripped by the dangers from it, but we will discuss that. I am not coming in with an iron rod right now," said Ashley Giles — a year ago when he was appointed the new England director of cricket. But England have now added yet another name to a growing list of soccer casualties. Just over a year ago, Jonny Bairstow lost his place as wicketkeeper on a tour of Sri Lanka after damaging ankle ligaments in a kick-about. A decade ago, then England coach Andy Flower banned the warm-up soccer routine after Joe Denly damaged a knee because of an unwieldy tackle before a one-day international match against Australia at The Oval. Like Bairstow, Denly is on tour in South Africa and might have offered some caution, as might have James Anderson, who turned his ankle playing soccer on tour in New Zealand in 2008. Opponents South African can relate. Ace bowler Vernon Philander was out for eight months after he damaged his ankle in a pre-match kick-about in India. But South Africa also still continue to play an awkward version of a rondo, where a few players in the middle of a circle of others try to intercept a soccer ball being passed between the players on the outer ring. Australia’s culture is reflected in their choice of touch rugby rather than soccer to get the blood flowing. But this proved even costlier. In was during such a game that Glenn McGrath stood on a stray cricket ball left on the outfield at Edgbaston and ripped the ligaments in his right ankle, changing the course of the Ashes in 2005.
  14. Days after the lawyers’ attack on the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC), a new video has surfaced on micro-blogging website Twitter in which a lawyer can be seen slapping a motorcyclist.In the video a lawyer can be seen stopping a motorcyclist passing between the protesting lawyers and snatching his motorcycle keys. After an exchange of words, the lawyer slapped the man prompting others present there to intervene. After Wednesday’s attack on PIC, videos have been coming out on social media showing the violent acts committed by the lawyers.A group of more than 200 lawyers, following an earlier quarrel with the PIC doctors, stormed the hospital, vandalised property and damaged dozens of vehicles parked in the hospital premises. They had also set ablaze a police van during their assault.Three people had lost their lives amidst the mayhem as doctors abandoned their patients to escape the mob. The police have registered a first information report (FIR) against 200-250 unidentified lawyers on the complaint of an official of the PIC.The case has been registered under various sections of the Pakistan Penal Code, including 322 (qatl-bis-sabab), 452 (trespassing), 353 (assault to deter public servant from performing duty), 354 (assault on woman to outrage her modesty), 148 (rioting with deadly weapon), 395 (dacoity) as well as Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA).

  16. With a slight tilt of his head, tousled hair and charming dimples that surfaced every time he smiled - the little Shah Rukh Khan admirer within me did a few lazy somersaults every time the man glanced square at the camera and tossed that trademark smirk. (c) Dharma Productions Yet, I can't recall my first SRK movie - you know 'the one' that grants you an initiation into the cult of King Khan admirers. I feel it ought to have been either DDLJ or Kuch Kuch Hota Hai at most. But, my earliest memories from the time would have me believe that it began with a strong liking for Raj, though I eventually ended up falling for Rahul. By the time I moved on from Rahul, I came to understand the true depth of feelings that was his fandom and why it wasn't just him but Shah Rukh - the actor, who was a bigger deal in this country of mad movie lovers. (c) Dharma Productions The man has been synonymous to romance in India. Presenting the picture-perfect version of the “ideal” lover who is a tempting mix of passion, warmth, friendship and possessiveness (at times bordering on obsession). People loved this blend of rugged handsomeness marrying tough romance, and almost got hooked to it. That's how India found it's King of Romance, and Karan Johar found his forever muse in Shah Rukh Khan. (c) Dharma Productions Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Darr, Yes Boss, Pardes, Dil Toh Pagal Hai, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Mohabbatein, Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham, Devdas, Kal Ho Na Ho, Veer Zaara, Om Shanti Om, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Chennai Express, Happy New Year are just some of the major hit titles that SRK gave over the last few decades, thus reaffirming year after year that nobody does romance better than this man. (c) Red Chillies But here's the thing. Time moves on, people grow and change to meet the demands of this transient life, but then why is it that we make the people we love so insecure about adopting change? Why is it that while we all preach “change is the only constant”, we fail to appreciate it when our “heroes” attempt to walk the talk? That's perhaps what's eating at SRK's tremendous calibre as an artist right at this moment. The inability of his “fans” to welcome and accept him as anything that's remotely disconnected to romance. (c) Red Chillies Even though that's probably the only saving grace SRK needs right now. A change of pace, a change of narrative, and hell, perhaps even a change of heart to push through this clutter that decides the worth on an actor solely on the basis of Twitter reviews and box office collections. Are you feeling attacked? Why else are you putting up those defences then? (c) Yash Raj Films Where were you when Shah Rukh tried to present the other side of the story in Dil Se? When he tried his hands at a period drama with Asoka? Where was your camaraderie when he played a street gang leader in Josh? What happened to your righteousness when you let a story like Swades go unnoticed? What were your concerns with Fan and even Zero for that matter? (c) Red Chillies Why weren't these films good enough for you to appreciate even the art of an artist? Weren't the roles challenging enough for you, or would you say they were too experimental? Whether he played a nemesis or a dwarf, a king or a journalist, your limited scope of acceptance slowly and thoroughly stripped SRK of the joy and excitement to bring something new to the table. (c) Madras Talkies And that's where my complaint against him lies. Dear King Khan, there is a world beyond the romantic hero that lays unexplored for you. The times of the 'lover boy' is long gone, so perhaps it's time we said our goodbyes to the Raj(s) and Rahul(s) and made way for more Mohan(s), Kabir(s) and Jug(s) instead. (c) Dharma Productions We need more of Mohan's calm aggression, we crave for Kabir's junoon and the easy companionship that came with Dr Jehangir 'Jug' Khan, where the characters shouldered the narratives, and not the other way round. (c) Yash Raj Films There are people who are watching, who still come to witness that star who made romance come to life onscreen, and not so much the romance that made you a star. They come for the artist who excelled in his craft, the actor whose performance made a film, and a performer whose only joy came from performing, and not from the critics or the 300-Cr club memberships. Here's hoping to see more of you SRK, better of you. Love, A forever admirer. View the full article

  19. What happens when you take meat-loving, fruit and vegetable-hating, fallacy-advocating men and design a diet for them? The Carnivore Diet is born. The introduction in itself would come across as a strong one, and you would agree with it once you know more about this new emerging diet that has been doing the rounds of social media galore recently. © Getty Images Popularized by Shawn Barker, a mid-50s strong and ripped world indoor rowing record-holder and an ex-MD, the carnivore diet is a dietary pattern that promotes only eating animal products. Mainly meat for all your meals. And it strongly advocates against eating any fruits and vegetables. It's not known if this was started as a strong contention to the vegan diet or an extreme extension of the ketogenic diet, but it sure as hell makes some questionable claims and promises that would fall flat in the face of science and logic. Here are some of the claims propagated by the Carnivore Diet: 1. Fruits & Vegetables Are Actually BAD For You © Getty Images Yes, you read this right. The carnivore diet goes ahead and makes claims on the lines of fruit and vegetable consumption being detrimental for your health. Even a fifth-grader can tell you the benefits of it, namely being fibre intake, nutrient intake, etc., and the carnivore diet makes an absurd claim against the same. 2. You Should ONLY Eat Animal Products © Getty Images Yup, just animal products and consume meat, primarily, for all your meals. Though the ketogenic diet also suggests eating mainly fats and protein, there are still some carbohydrates in your diet like green veggies. The carnivore diet, on the other hand, is virtually ZERO carbohydrates. 3. Calories Do Not Count Another absurd claim by this diet is that calories DO NOT count. As you are technically cutting out an entire food group, rather limiting yourself to just one food group in this diet, stating that it overcomes the law of thermodynamics is absurd. Calorie counting may NOT be necessary when you have such a restrictive dietary pattern but stating they do not matter at all is downright dubious. A sample carnivore diet and food options permissible in it looks like the following: • Food Options: Meat, fish (fattier the better), eggs, dairy (though most do not consume any due to carbs), bone marrow, fatty meat products, salt and pepper. Basically, anything that walks, crawls, flies, swims, or has had parents (barring humans, of course). • Breakfast: Coffee, scrambled eggs and bacon • Lunch: Steak or chicken liver • Snack: Bone broth or cheese • Dinner: Steak or hamburger patty or fatty fish For me, this diet would go down as an extremely misleading fad due to the following reasons: 1. Science Claims Otherwise Saying that fruits and vegetables are harmful is outright misleading. The fallacy is outright stupid in this case. You will hardly ever find any study showing unfavourable effects of fruit and vegetable consumption on human health. A study by Boeing et. al. concluded that regular fruit and veggie consumption has protective effects against coronary heart disease, hypertension, and stroke. 2. It Is Expensive Animal products all day long, all life? A diet has to be economically feasible as well in the long-term. An all-animal diet goes far off the reach for a majority of the population in terms of the cost. © Getty Images 3. Unsustainable Having an exclusive diet is hardly sustainable, be it any kind of a diet. If you think that you can follow an all-animal diet (I still think it is a bad idea) all your life, go ahead. For almost 99% of the population, this may not be the case. 4. It May Be Unhealthy Eating just meat all-day long adding lard and butter on top of it and consuming it day-in and day-out. You may as well put up a big fancy board inviting a host of cardiovascular diseases and health problems. I'd say that the carnivore diet is just a new addition to the host of pre-existing fad diets and I am sure many people would still fall for it. Like I have mentioned multiple times, it is yet another fad that is far from healthy. Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company.

  20. India has been investing a lot of time and money into the country's space programme and India's mission for a manned trip to the moon is clinching closer than ever. In fact, India is three years ahead to send a manned crew to space.

  21. This season of Indian Premier League has never been short of controversies right from the outset. From Ravi Ashwin's 'mankading' controversy to the 'no-ball' controversy in the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) versus Mumbai Indians (MI) game, it has seen it all. And now, in the 10th match of the season, fans on social media speculated that Indian Test wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant was involved a match-fixing scandal during the contest between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), on Saturday. As per reports, Pant was caught on the stump mic, saying “yeh to waise bhi chaukka hai (this is going to go for a four)” in the fourth over when KKR's Robin Uthappa was on strike. On the very next ball, Robbie hit the ball for a four off Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane, to get off the mark. The video of the incident went viral on social media with many fans questioning Pant on how he knew the result of the delivery even before the ball was bowled. However, the BCCI has dismissed all claims regarding the comment made by Pant. © AP “No one heard what Rishabh said before that particular sentence. He was apparently telling (Delhi Capitals captain) Shreyas Iyer to increase fielders on off-side to stop an imminent four,” a BCCI official told PTI. The BCCI official added that a young cricketer like Rishabh Pant shouldn't have been maligned in such a way on social media. “Maligning a young cricketer without even knowing the details is so unfortunate. A section of media allowed the social media to insinuate and vilify a young talent without getting into details. This is so disgusting,” the official added. Eventually, DC went on to win the match in the Super Over after finishing on 185/6 while chasing 186 for victory. Are social media trials getting too harsh? Let us know in the comments section.
