  1. Singer Shaan has impressed us with his extraordinary singing skills for over a decade now. Some of his iconic music compositions include Dus Bahane, Ladki Kyun, Chand Sifarish and several other humble songs including the legendary Tanha Dil. Shaan has often been vocal about the kind of music that's made in today's time. In a recent video, he had a take on Yo Yo Honey Singh as well. The singer went onto admit that when he met Honey, he praised Shaan's music, but the latter was unable to recognise him as 'he'd gained a lot of weight.' © Instagram/Shaan © Instagram/Shaan He also revealed that the rapper came to him full of admiration and said, "Shaan sir, I've been following you...' I said 'thank you'." However, Shaan didn't recognise him, and when he did, he went to him and admitted that he forgot who he was, which made Honey a little upset. "I felt like such an idiot. Why did I have to go back and tell him that I didn't recognise him?," Shaan added. View the full article
  2. In a bizarre incident that is making headlines all across Europe and among children’s welfare workers all over the world, a nine-year-old boy was recently arrested in the United Kingdom for being the youngest drug dealer in history of the country. © iStock The nine-year-old primary schoolboy, whose name hasn’t been disclosed to protect him from potential predators, was arrested with a significant amount of cocaine and was arrested citing his intent to distribute. © iStock A local newspaper quoted Junior Smart, the founder of a local NGO called St Giles' SOS Project, saying that this actually has become a normal thing. He said, “When I first started doing this 15 years ago I was shocked by the 10-year-olds on our caseload. Now I don't even bat an eyelid. They are getting younger and younger.” © The Mirror Smart says that oftenchildren are used as mules and are used to carry drugs for a family member or friend. “One of the most common things these children say to me is that 'we thought these people cared about us'” he said. Another newspaper, The Mirror, carried a report on how such practices have exasperated in England and Wales ever since people were laid off for the Covid pandemic. Jo Shiner, Chief Constable of Sussex and National Police Chiefs' Council lead for children was quoted as saying, “If they see a way of making money they will take that risk. Since the pandemic started, we have seen even more children exploited by drug gangs.” © iStock The schoolboy cannot be charged, because as per the law of the land, 10 is the legal age of criminal responsibility in England and Wales. In an ideal world, that would mean the boy would go through extensive counselling and rehabilitation. However, given the situation in England and the unavailability of resources, the boy was released, and let go. The Mirror claims that in the past 5 years, there have been more than 16,000 confirmed cases, where children as young as 10-year-old were being used by drug-peddling organisations to move their product and distribute. 9 year old boy could be Britain’s youngest ever crack cocaine dealer! He was made to carry the drugs by an older sibling or even a parent. More education and effective intervention for primary age children is paramount. @pritipatel https://t.co/zGR5mFyqZx#countylines ⬇️ — Christina Gabbitas (@ChristiGabbitas) June 7, 2021 People who work with children’s welfare believe that education and systemic interventions and rehabilitation are the only ways in which such incidents can be dealt with.

  3. Most of us have made that one impulse-buy, that we have come to regret eventually. A pair of sneakers, a watch, a video game, a mobile phone - these things may be expensive, but they at least have some utility. © iStock Now, imagine spending Rs 38 Lakhs on a single piece of chicken nugget, because it looks like a nameless character from a video game. Well, that is exactly what has happened. © iStock An eBay user has put up a post saying that he has a Chicken McNugget in the shape of a crewmate from the massively popular game, Among Us. © InnerSloth LLC What is more surprising, that people have actually bid some insane money on the piece of chicken. The bidding closed at $51,800, or roughly Rs 38 Lakhs. © eBay But why would a piece of chicken cost as much as a decently furnished 1 BHK apartment? McDonald’s has teamed up with the Korean boy band, BTS, and is selling a combo meal popularly known as the BTS meal in some markets. A part of that meal consists of a box of Chicken McNuggets. This is where the “magical” piece comes from. © Instagram/bts.bighitofficial Food items with such appearances are usually auctioned off for ridiculous amounts of money. In 2016, a piece of Cheetos, the American version for India’s Kurkure, sold for $99,000 because it was shaped like Harambe, the infamous gorilla that was shot inside a zoo in the US. © eBay Then, there was this instance, when a cheese toast, that apparently looks like the Virgin Mary, was auctioned off in 2004, for $28,000. © eBay Given BTS’ global appeal and popularity, and the fact that any unique and bizarre merchandise with their name connected to it has become a collectable, we can see why someone bid $51,800 on it. The listing says that the nugget is ‘slightly used,’ and that it will be frozen and air-sealed before it is shipped. © eBay We just wonder, what was the person thinking when they placed the bid? And what happens when the thing starts going bad? Well, that would make this ordeal quite interesting, wouldn’t it? View the full article
  4. It seems that even the God Of Thunder isn’t exactly immune to body image issues, and is very conscious about how people perceive his body. © Instagram/chrishemsworth In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Chris Hemsworth revealed that people see him differently as an actor because of the physique he has had to bulk-up for his performances in the Marvel cinematic universe. © Marvel Said the Norse God of Thunder, “I feel that people think there is a certain vanity attached to bodybuilding or bulking up. Had I been unhealthily skinny, or been required to put on unhealthy weight for my projects, I would be perceived as a serious actor. The training across 10 years of doing it is a full-time job. That and then a 12-hour shooting day - it's a real grind.” © Marvel Hemsworth made headlines with his “Fat Thor” avatar back in 2018-2019, before Avengers: Endgame released. Later it was revealed that he was actually wearing a fat suit. © Marvel Eagle-eyed cinephiles would have noticed, that with each of the Marvel films since 2011, when he first appeared as Thor, Hemsworth has grown bulkier and muscular. © Marvel In the interview, he said that even though it is for the camera, actors like him need to bulk up in a certain way. One would assume that because of how films are shot, actors can sort of cheat and really get bulked up biceps. © Instagram/chrishemsworth That is far from the truth. He said, “That's what you see the most. We consider the costume and if it shows a lot of shoulders, or are we gonna see the bicep or the traps. You want it to be balanced. You don't want to look like Popeye with one section of the body blown up.” © Instagram/chrishemsworth Given that its been 10 years since he took up the role of Thor, and that Robert Downey Jr & Chris Evans both have exited the Universe with their respective characters, Hemsworth feels that he says he wants to try new projects. © Instagram/chrishemsworth It seems that audiences too would love to see him in different stuff, along with his Marvel Projects. After all, Extraction had one of the highest watch times among all of Netflix’s film releases last year. © Instagram/chrishemsworth Speaking about his upcoming projects, Hemsworth said that given the global lockdown, he has had plenty of time to prepare for Thor: Love and Thunder & Extraction 2, both of which will be shot in Australia. This has allowed him to stay close to his family, and work out for both of his films. He says that for Thor: Love and Thunder he is in the best shape of his life. He said, “Having this time at home meant I explored different methods, to see how I can manipulate my body with just the right amount of powerlifting and bodybuilding workouts.” © Instagram/chrishemsworth What do you think about Chris’ statement, of actors who need to bulk up aren’t taken as serious actors? Do you agree with him, or do you have opposing views? Let us know in the comments below. View the full article
  5. Most men are happy with the limited stock of skincare products they own and that’s okay. No one has the time to to understand the complex world of products and their new formulas and what works for whom every single day. A clean face and groomed beard is more than enough to look presentable enough to go to a date, office meeting or a family event. © iStock 2. Lip balmDry lips are a big turn off. You can totally use a no-shine, colourless lip balm from your girl’s drawer to nourish your lips with a quick swap, if you don't want it to 'show'. © iStock 4. Sheet MaskJust like moisturisers, sheet masks also hydrate the skin. It has active ingredients that nourish the skin from within and rejuvenates it. For the amazing glow, this is your go-to. © iStock 6. Petroleum JellyPetroleum jelly has umpteem benefits and doesn't cater to a specific gender. You can apply it on dry elbows, chapped lips, cracked feet and to even groom unruly beard hair and moustache. © iStock Although a lot of brands are coming up with their genderless skincare lines which have formulations that cater to both men and women, these products are already officially unisex.

  6. Actor Kangana Ranaut has shared the news with her fans on Instagram that she has finally tested negative for COVID-19. She also stated how she has so many tips on how to fight the virus, however, she will not be sharing the same with her followers.

  8. Manoj Bajpayee is an extraordinary actor and has won the hearts of many people with his presence on OTT. He has impressed the audience through his performances in his projects like The Family Man, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari, and Silence... Can You Hear It? In an exclusive interview with TOI, he said, “It’s quite humbling. It’s been quite an amazing journey, starting with ‘The Family Man’ to ‘Silence...'--all of the projects that I have been a part of, have been enjoying massive success. And you know, it not only leaves me speechless and overwhelmed but also with a lot of thankfulness for the audience and for the directors who chose me for these parts.” View this post on InstagramHe expressed his stance on how OTT has changed him as an actor, he said, “I am still the same actor that I have always been. I still work on the script and character. Preparation is something that I completely focus on. There’s no compromise. I am still the same actor who always follows the vision of the director. I am still the same person who always feels lucky and grateful that he is still here and is still so relevant. People are watching my projects and watching my work so you know, I am still the same actor, the same person. Nothing has changed. I don’t think anything will change about me as a person or as an actor.” “Well, there’s a policy that OTT will self-regulate, which, I think, is much better than having somebody to sensor creative projects which they might be completely unaware about. It will be better if there is some kind of an understanding between the OTT and creative people, as then, eventually, they will be able to find a common ground to agree on. I am completely in favor of giving 18+ or 16+ or 7+ ratings to categorizing films rather than having censorship. With OTT having its own regulatory body, it will not harm a creative product much. That’s what I think at this point unless OTT becomes completely nervous about all the products that they are putting on their platform,” he added. View this post on InstagramOn being asked whether or not he missed the euphoria of theatres, he said, “Definitely. You can’t replace the collective viewing that only theatres provide. My film, ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’, was the first to have released in theatres with 50 percent capacity. All of us were very much concerned but if we won't go ahead and release, then who else would? We decided we’ll do it. And ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’ ran for more than 100 days. The exhibitors were quite kicked about keeping a film there. Yes, the footfall was not too big but it started picking up and the same people coming in and enjoying the film. Then the film went on OTT and has done remarkably well. People are still watching it. I am personally sad and disappointed that because of the resurgence we have come back to square one. But once the situation of the pandemic gets better, I know that people will be going back to theatres. It’s a different experience altogether from watching it on a big television.” View this post on InstagramAfter all, he is a great actor and we love seeing him on screen performing. What do you think?

  12. LG announced today that the company is quitting the smartphone business due to high losses in the mobile division. The company said in a statement that it will shut down the division to focus “resources in growth areas.” LG will now be focusing on electric vehicle parts, smartphone home products, robotics, artificial intelligence and B2B solutions. © LG LG will keep selling current smartphone models such as the Q-series, W-series, K-series, Wing and other models until the inventory lasts. The South Korean company will also provide service support and software updates for existing customers that will depend on the location of the customer. It is unclear which regions will continue to receive software updates at the moment and for which models. The company also said that it will work “collaboratively” with business partners and suppliers through this period of closure of the mobile division. The company will shut down the entire division by July 31st, however it will continue to sell smartphones until inventory lasts. At the moment, current LG owners do not have much to worry about as the company will continue to support smartphones that are already out there for now. The company will also provide repair services for these particular models after the deadline as well. © unsplash LG has been looking to sell its mobile phone business due to the division consistently making losses. The company tried to talk to potential buyers, however it did not pan out for the company. The South Korean giant was talking to at least two companies for the sale, however nothing materialised. LG faced fierce competition from Samsung and Chinese rivals that caused the company to suffer massive losses for the past six years. Even though LG showed off its rollable phone earlier this year at CES 2021, the company will now be focusing on the B2B aspect for other smartphone OEMs like Samsung and Motorola. Now that the company is shutting down the business, a rollable phone by the smartphone maker looks quite unlikely. View the full article
  13. The current favourite Punjabi track that is playing everywhere right now is ‘Titliyaan’. There is a particular line in the song that caught everyone’s attention that goes like “Pata nahi kaunsa nasha karta hai”. Well, that’s exactly what was playing on my mind when I first read this piece of bizarre news. Last week, a burglar in Thailand broke into someone's house to steal some valuables but guess what was the real thing that was stolen from him? Well, his own sleep! Now when we burn out at our work desks, we often just keep away from the screen and catch a nap on the desk or like catch a wink on the bean bag nearby. However, this robber got so overwhelmed and tired during his work hours that he decided to take a nap then and there itself. The nap didn’t go the way he probably thought because the housemates realised there’s someone in there and police was called immediately, leading to this tired chap’s arrest. The 22-year-old man was identified as Athit Kin Khunthud, who was reportedly tirelessly looking for a house to rob on his night stroll. The tale doesn’t get weird here. The weirdest and the saddest part of the story is that the house he broke into belonged to a police officer only! The officer realised that the AC in his daughter’s room was switched on, and on checking the room, he found an uninvited sleepover guest. As luck would have it, the team was called who eventually took this robber away. A similar incident was recorded in Andhra Pradesh, India back in September 2020 when a man found a robber sleeping in his house after he caught him snoring in a room nearby with the air conditioning on! Well, I think sleep is more precious than money, so they had their priorities on point. View the full article

  15. The iPhone for what it's worth does many things right and iOS 14 has now become more like Android, more than ever. While Apple might have reduced the gap between the two operating systems, there are still some features that we would like the iPhone to copy from flagship Android devices. These features include both hardware and software features that Apple should include in the next iPhone in 2021. 1. A Higher Refresh Rate Display © denis-cherkashin-unsplash It has been long rumoured that Apple is looking to include a ProMotion display on the iPhone but we are yet to see that come to fruition. iPhones currently still use a 60Hz display which in many ways is archaic when compared to the current Android flagship phones. OnePlus, Samsung and Xiaomi have all started to use higher refresh rate panels for flagship models and its time Apple makes the move as well. Not only does it result in smoother scrolling and browsing experience, here will also be a noticeable difference in the overall gaming experience. 2. A Better Way To Manage Notifications © Apple The one feature I cannot excuse anymore is the way iOS handles notifications. Currently, notifications feel very unorganised as compared to Android and sometimes even gives me anxiety. Android also uses machine learning to auto-suggest actions to notifications which we haven't seen implemented in iOS yet. Even when it comes to managing notifications, the experience far inferior to Android 11 which often leads me to miss important notifications simply because of how iOS handles them. 3. Get Rid of The Lightning Port © Youtube_EveyrthingApplePro USB-C has now become a global charging standard across the world for almost every device apart from the iPhone. Apple even uses the USB-C port for its MacBook and iPad lineup which makes the hesitance to change the port on the iPhone even more baffling. Apple has been known for streamlining its ecosystem in the past but as of now, it is a total mess. Switching to USB-C will not only make it compatible with other charging cables but also open up a range of accessories we can use with the iPhone. We can already see how companies are taking advantage of the USB-C port on the iPad lineup and we would like to something similar for the iPhone as well. 4. A Smaller Notch or No Notch At All © Everything Apple Pro Android devices have now moved to displays that come with a small punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera which leaves more room on the display for users. The notch on the iPhone is now quite dated and we would like to see at least a smaller notch on the next iPhone. The ideal situation would be that Apple users a similar design as the iPad Pro since the tablet does not have a notch and still manages to utilise FaceID as a form of biometric security. Apple can also use an in-display fingerprint scanner to bring back TouchID on the iPhone which has now come a long way over the years. 5. Always-on Display © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The last thing that we are yet to see on an iPhone is an always-on display. Every Android device that uses an AMOLED panel uses some form of an always-on display. This one feature can change the lives of iPhone users as it can give users relevant notifications on the screen without actually having to wake-up the display. This will let users decide better whether they want to pick up their phone or not and in turn reduce screen time as well. Right now, iPhone users have to wake up the phone’s screen each time if they want to see a notification. View the full article
  16. If you follow the GTA online scene, then you have probably heard about “Sodapopin”, the online star who regularly streamed GTA RP (role-playing) on his Twitch channel. However, Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris announced that he will be taking a break from the game as well as his in-game character ‘Kevin Whipaloo’ because the game started to feel too much like an actual job. He said he rarely got to enjoy the scenarios in the game and is currently unclear when he will bring his character back. © Twitch_Sodapoppin Morris decided to quit an in-game job because the pressure of handling multiple careers and maintaining a humorous persona at the same time became too much for him. Roleplaying in GTA online isn’t new and is the most-watched form of content for GTA Online. For those who are unfamiliar with it, in GTA RP streamers role-play characters and come up with some hilarious or ridiculous storylines. Sodapoppin’s character Kevin Whipaloo is both the manager at Burger Shot and Marlowe Vineyard. He is also the floor manager at the Diamond Resort and Casino. His character’s main modus operandi is that he avoids committing crimes in the game, which is extremely hard to do. © Twitch_Sodapoppin Speaking on how the game started to feel like a real job, the streamer said "I'm taking a break. And I'm coming back when I feel like it. It's too much, And I don't want to say those things while I'm doing GTA RP, because the last thing I want is I don't want someone to look at Kevin in-game and be like 'oh, I don't want to interact with him because I know he's got too much interactions going on already.' I don't want people to overthink it. But at the same time, it's f**king brutal. It's just brutal.” © Twitch_Sodapoppin It will be disappointing for fans of Sodapoppin since he is extremely popular in the GTA roleplaying community. It came as a shock to everyone to know that the streamer was not enjoying the experience lately. Apparently, Sodapoppin “overestimated” his capacity to balance his personal life and the game due to which he has taken a break to recuperate his mental wellbeing. His audience was sad to see him quit for the time being but were also sympathetic to his problems and are ready to welcome him back when he is ready. View the full article
  17. The 2020-21 series of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy between India and Australia left a lot of unanswered questions for the Men in Blue despite coming up with a historic victory at the Brisbane Cricket Ground. Among the hottest debates from within the squad one belongs to the wicket-keeping position in the Playing XI with two of the leading contenders being constantly compared to one another in Rishabh Pant and Wriddhiman Saha. Over the course of the four Test matches played in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, the ownership of the wicket-keeping position was in a seesaw between Pant and Saha because of the respective abilities and inabilities shared by the two cricketers. Perks & Drawbacks Of Rishabh Pant View this post on Instagram On one hand, Rishabh Pant established himself as one of the most successful batsmen in red-ball cricket for the team in the current era. His 97-run stint in the second innings of the Sydney Test, followed by an even impressive unbeaten 89* to lead India to series victory, make him a great middle order option for skipper Virat Kohli. It is inevitable that the confidence he gained after the Gabba Test will flow into the upcoming Test series against the touring England team.

During the Test series in Australia, Pant struggled to take catches, especially in the Sydney Test in which he dropped two dollies to dismiss Marnus Labuschagne in the first innings, which might have enabled the Men in Blue to win the series with one game to spare. Pant is also criticised for not assessing the deliveries properly before convincing his captain to go for DRS reviews and more often than not, has gotten the reviews incorrectly. Perks & Drawbacks Of Wriddhiman Saha"Wicketkeeping should remain a specialist position." Says Wriddhiman Saha. READ: https://t.co/jWHguc8GNW#INDvAUS #WriddhimanSaha #RishabhPant pic.twitter.com/FC90pmDkFj — TOI Sports (@toisports) January 25, 2021 A 36-year-old Wriddhiman Saha brings over 11 years of wicket-keeping experience to the table while arguing for his case to be in the Playing XI of Team India. Even during the India-Australia series, when Saha was behind the wicket, the number of errors committed dropped significantly as compared to Pant’s time. But Saha’s struggles to add runs to his team’s total has kept him away from getting a definite spot in the Indian roster. Here’s how he did while touring Australia. In Sydney, where he was chosen over Pant, Saha scored 9 off 26 and 4 off 15 in the first and second innings respectively. Another factor that is going against him is his age. At 36, Saha has the prime of his career in the rear-view mirror and the team must look towards the future - the future being Rishabh Pant. However, in an interview with the Times of India, Saha opened up about being continuously compared to Pant: Agree with Saha? https://t.co/7JbdfMovuz pic.twitter.com/daGYkFgzC6 — Cricbuzz (@cricbuzz) January 25, 2021 "I have been hearing these comparisons since 2018. I believe in doing my job and I am not worried about how Pant is batting. I don't want to change my game because of that. It's up to the team management to decide who will stand behind the stumps," Saha Saha told TOI during a chat. "There are situations when a missed chance can change the result of a match. Wicketkeeping is a specialist job especially in Test cricket. I am not claiming to hold on to every catch that comes my way, but this is a specialist position and should remain so," Saha said. "Look, now that Pant is keeping I am sure he will work on it and try to get better. The team management is keeping faith in him and I am sure they know what to prioritise - his batting or keeping," Saha added. View the full article
