  1. A labourer drinks water as another looks on on a hot summer day at a grain market in Chandigarh, India, April 19, 2016. REUTERS/Ajay Verma/Files2019 was the second hottest year on record and ended the hottest decade in history, the European Union's climate monitoring service said Wednesday. Data released by the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) showed that worldwide temperatures last year were second only to 2016, in which temperatures were boosted 0.12°C by an exceptionally strong El Nino natural weather event. The average temperature in 2019 was only a few hundredths of a degree below the 2016 level. The last five years have been the hottest on record, and the period of 2010-2019 was the hottest decade since records began, C3S said. Did you know all of world's 15 hottest places are in Pakistan and India? Globally temperatures in 2019 were 0.6 Celsius warmer than the 1981-2010 average. Earth's temperature over the last five years was 1.1-1.2°C warmer than pre-industrial times. Last year was Europe's hottest ever. "2019 has been another exceptionally warm year, in fact the second warmest globally in our data set, with many of the individual months breaking records," said Carlo Buontempo, head of C3S. Also read: Heatwave hits Australia with hottest day on record 2019 was just 0.04°C cooler than 2016, which saw temperatures boosted by a once-in-a-century strength El Nino. 'Alarming signs'C3S also said that atmospheric carbon concentrations continued to rise in 2019, reaching their highest levels on record. Earlier this month, the European Commission (EC) Directorate-General for Environment (DG ENV) shared a "dramatic picture" and urged for action, saying "#ClimateCrisis & #NatureCrisis impact all of us". Separately, the EC Directorate-General for Climate Action (DG CLIMA) had said scientists around the world had repeatedly sounded the alarms on climate crisis and biodiversity loss. It said "to restore, preserve and protect #OurPlanet" was the "focus for 2020". The United Nations said last year that man-made greenhouse gas emissions needed to tumble 7.6 percent each year to 2030 in order to limit temperature rises to 1.5°C. Current pledges by countries to cut their emissions put Earth on a path of several degrees warming by the end of the century.

Scientists say such catastrophes will become more frequent and more intense as temperatures climb. "The past five years have been the warmest on record; the last decade has been the warmest on record," said Copernicus director Jean-Noel Thepaut. "These are unquestionably alarming signs."

In Europe, all seasons were warmer than average, with several countries registering both summer and winter temperature highs. December 2019 was 3.2°C warmer than the 1981-2010 reference period, C3S said. Related:Last three years hottest on record: UN
  2. Ryan Kaji, an eight-year-old YouTuber, has become the highest paid creator on the platform in 2019. According to Forbes magazine, the kid has earned $26 million on his YouTube channel "'Ryan's World' during the current year. The parents of Ryan has faced criticism for making the kid what critics say do "unconstructive stuff" in life. The earnings of the YouTube star has now come as a shock for both the critics and the fans. Ryan Guan aka Ryan Kaji's was also named as YouTube's highest earner in 2018, with $22 million, according to the magazine. "Ryan's World", the channel that was first launched by his parents in 2015, has now surpassed 23 million subscribers on YouTube. Several videos of Ryan unboxing toys and other things became popular shortly after it was launched. The channel has received almost 35 billion views since its creation in 2015.
  3. Arguably one of the most destructive openers in international cricket, Rohit Sharma has the ability to put some of the best bowlers in the sport to shame. His wide array of strokes often sees him cutting a sorry figure for the opposition bowling unit while giving Team India a flying start at the top. His artistry with the willow was recently in full display as India coasted to a 67-run triumph over West Indies in the 3rd Twenty20 International (T20I) at the Wankhede stadium. The right-hander slammed a breathtaking 34-ball 71 including six fours and five sixes to help India post an imposing total of 240 runs. Here he is...𤩠The new #LaLiga Brand Ambassador in India, Rohit Sharma! ð®ð³ðâ½â¨ Welcome, @ImRo45! ð¤ð pic.twitter.com/ecMsRb9rzS — LaLiga (@LaLigaEN) December 12, 2019 Following his blitzkrieg, which allowed India to secure a 2-1 series win, Rohit, once again, thronged social media after he was appointed by La Liga as their brand ambassador from India. The Mumbai cricketer has become the first individual from the country to be appointed as the ambassador of the popular Spanish football league. Hola India/España, as you guys know, football has always held a special place in my heart so this association is so special to me. And to be named the ambassador for the La Liga is so humbling. So excited for this partnership @LaLigaEN pic.twitter.com/prZFFSeHdV — Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) December 12, 2019 An ardent Real Madrid fan, the 'Hitman' revealed that football has always held a special place in his heart and he feels special by La Liga's gesture to appoint him as their brand ambassador. "Hola India/España, as you guys know, football has always held a special place in my heart so this association is so special to me. And to be named the ambassador for the La Liga is so humbling. So excited for this partnership @LaLigaEN," he wrote on Twitter. During the La Liga event in Mumbai, Rohit was asked to reveal the best footballer in the Indian cricket team. "I think MS Dhoni is the best footballer in our team," Rohit was quoted saying by India Today. The opening batsman also revealed that he prefers playing in a midfield role in warm-up football matches between Indian players. © Twitter "The captain decides who plays where. I love playing as a midfielder during warm-up matches because that's the most challenging spot. Football is played as a warm-up because it brings us together as a team makes our body active," Rohit added. Those who know Dhoni or perhaps have seen his biopic would know that football is nothing new to the former Indian captain. For someone who had started out as a goalkeeper in his school football team, Dhoni was turned into a wicket-keeper by his childhood coach after their cricket team's main keeper had pulled out due to exams.

  4. The year 2019 is coming to an end and with that, we are also marking the end of the decade, and honestly, all this information is too much to process. Anyway, as we inch closer to bidding goodbye to this year and the decade, people are going on a nostalgic trip remembering all the good, the bad and ugly things they came across in the past 10 years. Recently, Yahoo India (we didn't know it's still relevant) too joined this bandwagon with their list of 'blockbusters of the decade'. And Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan has creates yet another record that only he can break. According to Yahoo India's recent 'decade in review' report, Nitesh Tiwari's Dangal has now been crowned as the biggest 'blockbuster of the decade'. Yes, the same movie based on the life of wrestler-sisters Geeta and Babita Phogat and their father Mahavir Phogat, who strongly believed that 'maari choriyaan choro se kam naa hai', which went on to earn over Rs 2000 crore at the box office globally. © aamir khan productions Aamir Khan's PK too is on the list. Apart from Dangal and PK, the list includes Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai, Dhoom 3, Sanju, War, Chennai Express and Dabangg. Honestly, we are kind of disappointed that Race 3 didn't find a place on this list. I mean, why is no one talking about this path-breaking movie which left such a huge impact on our lives? Why is no one talking about Daisy Shah who taught us the biggest life lesson - "Our business is our business, none of your business." © Salman Khan Films Looks like not everyone feels as strongly as we do for the cult movie, Race 3. Anyway, in case you don't have any plans for Christmas or New Year, you can spend your day binge-watching these movies. View the full article
  5. India is going places with a ton of achievements in her kitty, and it's all thanks to the people who have played their part to put India on the global map. Now India, and especially the National Capital have yet again bagged global limelight but unfortunately, there is nothing to celebrate about it this 'achievement'. © Reuters Delhi has now officially become the most polluted city in the world as per the data shared by IQ AirVisual (https://www.airvisual.com/), a Swiss establishment that gathers global air-quality data. That's not all, two other Indian states have made it to the top 10 most polluted cities list, with Kolkata on the eighth spot and Mumbai in the tenth spot. © Reuters With three of the country's metropolitan cities on this list, it's some achievement that the country has unlocked. Yet, this one we cannot be proud of. Rather, imagine the amount of shame and criticism this is bound to bring our way. “Delhi experienced its longest period of hazardous air pollution on record during late October and early November 2019,” AirVisual said. “For nine consecutive days from Sunday, October 27, 2019, overall Delhi air quality was in the hazardous zone, a level at which the entire population is likely to be affected.” © Reuters With four Chinese cities also on the list, it's another association that the two countries can now shake hands over, and perhaps seek fraternity over.

  8. Ibrahim Ali Khan has everything to make it big in Bollywood. Drop-dead good looks, genes from the quintessential royal family of Bollywood, and a family name that almost certainly guarantees a huge fan following. © Instagram/abujanisandeepkhosla Even before his Bollywood debut, Ibrahim is a favourite among designers, who are lining up left, right and centre for him to showcase their latest collections. And if Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla are an example of the zeitgeist in tinsel town, Ibrahim is doing a pretty good job. Recently, Ibrahim shot for Abu & Sandeep and their latest collection, called Mard, which had a really awesome collection of striped sherwanis and bandhgalas. Here, take a look. © Instagram/abujanisandeepkhosla The striped jacket and trousers with accents really go well with the patterned mules. Furthermore, the abstract manner in which some of the areas have been made to clash with the generally horizontal stripes should allow for an interesting visual aspect. © Instagram/abujanisandeepkhosla The bandhgala also, with its frilled neck and bejewelled cuffs, look classically regal, all the while carrying a modernistic undertone with it. The array of medallions that are being used as brooches, further add to the aristocratic appeal of the bandhgala. © Instagram/abujanisandeepkhosla The brooches in themselves are a work of art, replete with traditional designs and motifs. Another bandhgala from the collection that's worth mentioning is this one, with a simpler aesthetic. The striped placket, and the similarly striped lower half of the bandhgala have an understated appeal. © Instagram/abujanisandeepkhosla But our favourite piece from the collection has to be this shacket. © Instagram/abujanisandeepkhosla The stripes and the silhouette, combined, give it a very kitschy feel. The ultra-large pockets and the stripes flowing in the opposite directions give it a very militaristic or utilitarian appeal.
  9. It is the beginning of a new era for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), an era of presidency after 33 months of being led and administered by the Supreme Court-backed Committee of Administrators (CoA). The former captain of the Indian cricket team and a former member of the CoA, Sourav Ganguly is set to assume his position as the President of the Indian cricket board, today. His appointment as the most important official in all of Indian cricket came as a surprise to the entire nation especially when he was unanimously elected as the President during an “informal meeting”, a day ahead of the deadline. Nonetheless, Ganguly at the helm of things for Indian cricket is good for both domestic and international cricket as he brings two very important aspects to the table; youth (he is 47 years old) and the independent attitude to make bold decisions. Both of these were lacking in the organisation for a really long period of time. With the transfer of power finally taking place today, here is a list of things Ganguly must do as the BCCI President: 1. Day-Night Test Matches © Twitter Some of the orthodox fans of the game have shown discontent towards the idea of having day-night Test matches for a number of reasons; however, the fact of the matter is that the pink-ball format is a solution to the loss of interest the Test cricket is experiencing lately. Considered to be more of a broadcasting game, the day-night matches will give the audience the opportunity to sit back and watch the game in peace at the end of a busy day and will be a lot more aesthetically pleasing just like Twenty20 cricket. Personally, Ganguly is in favour of this change and has called it “inevitable”. 2. Restructure The 'Cooling-Off' Period © Reuters The idea of the 'cooling-off' period in the BCCI is healthy and in favour of the organisation. Making a BCCI official take some time off from their position at the Board would prevent the possibility of the organisation becoming a particular person's family business. However, the execution of this idea needs to be considered. According to the amendments made by the Supreme Court in 2018, any person who holds an office with the Indian cricket board or its state-level subsidiaries or both for two consecutive terms (for six consecutive years) must go on a 'cooling-off' period of three years before contesting for another spot. Six years of being in office practically goes against the very idea of letting one person hold an office for too long. It enables them to place a system so rigid that changing it with the evolving needs of time becomes almost impossible. Conversely, a three-year time-off from the organisation can lead to loss of momentum for an official who is trying to bring about a change in the organisation for good. Ganguly is also going to fall prey to this same issue because of which the former skipper is allowed to be the BCCI President just until July 2020. 3. Revamping 'Conflict Of Interest' © Twitter The so called “conflict of interest” in its current model is one of the most confusing and hypocritical “provisions” introduced under the administration of the CoA that has caused major loss of services to the players and veterans in the past. The Vinod Rai-led committee itself appointed a particular individual as the ethics officer and ombudsman, violating the essence of 'conflict of interest'. Also, one of the members continued to partake in CoA activities despite being over 70 years of age. Ideally speaking, an incident or an event should not be considered to be a conflict unless it causes some sort of danger or harm to another party. As suggested by The Hindu's Suresh Menon, the addition of the phrase “material difference” should be included in the rules to further clarify what falls under the ambit of 'conflict of interest'. 4. Making First Class Cricket More Valuable © Twitter Evidently, the first and the biggest concern that Ganguly said he would address was to look after first class cricket in the country. While Ranji Trophy players earn around Rs. 35,000 per day of the match and get provisions like free flight tickets and five-star hotel stays, it still feels like more of an audition for the Indian Premier League and that's about it. Additionally, the life of a domestic cricketer in India isn't as rosy as it sounds. While the top-tier players earn a fortune with the top-salary annual contract of Rs. 7 crore from the BCCI and IPL contracts worth up to Rs. 17 crore, it is the rest of the players, about 1,000 of them who work on a daily-wage basis with no financial security. “My first priority will be to look after first class cricketers. I had requested to the CoA and they have not listened. Ranji Trophy cricket will be the focus. To take care of cricketers' financial interest," the cricketer had said.
  10. Looks like, even after years of the Baahubali franchise making waves across the globe, the world can still not get enough of the magnum opus. This weekend was a very special time and marked a big milestone for the entertainment industry back home as SS Rajamouli's Baahubali:The Beginning became the only and the first ever non-English movie to be screened at the Royal Albert Hall in London, which is huge!

This is a giant leap of recognition meant for the people and a movie which truly put India on the global map of entertainment and in a way in which even Bollywood could not achieve this standard. For now, all we can say is 'Jai Mahishmati'! and let's hope we get to see this magical team work together again soon.
  11. Actors are heroes and idols for their fans who blindly follows their fashion antics, try to impersonate their personality traits and often times even try to follow their principles in real life. Big B aka Amitabh Bachchan is a mega star in his own way, and for decades, he's ruled everyone's hearts as well as the screens. Recently, when he shared a piece of information regarding a promise he kept, social media went abuzz with praises for him. Big B paid off loans for 2100 farmers from Bihar. "A promise made done... the farmers from Bihar that had outstanding loans, picked 2,100 of them and paid off their amount with a OTS (One Time Settlement) with the bank...called some of them over to Janak and personally gave it to them at the hands of Shweta and Abhishek," he mentioned on his blog. © Twitter © Twitter Last year, he helped over a thousand farmers in UP and cleared off their loans. He also mentioned what his other promise is. “To the family and wives of the brave hearts that sacrificed their lives for the country, at Pulwama, a small gesture of financial aid ... true 'shaheeds'.” It is wonderful when celebrities you admire set a great example by extending help in any way. He's truly the 'shehenshah' of Bollywood and of our hearts.
  12. After patiently waiting for seven days in the tournament, the Indian cricket team finally started their campaign at the ICC World Cup against South Africa in Southampton on 5th June. While the Indian fans were forced to wait to see their team in action, the late start for 'Men in Blue' at the ICC spectacle also meant that they had enough time to prepare - something that was in full display at the Rose Bowl stadium. Losing the toss, the Indian team found themselves bowling against the South African batting line-up, focussed on piling up a big score in a bid to record their first win in three games. But, it wasn't meant to be - thanks to a spectacular bowling performance by India. With Jasprit Bumrah getting his angles and seam movement to trouble the South African openers early on, everyone knew that a wicket was around the corner. While many suspected Quinton de Kock to became the first victim, it was Hashim Amla who eventually turned out to be the first scalp for Bumrah. Reuters In the fourth over, Bumrah's good length delivery, pitched just outside off, forced Amla to defend from the crease - a mistake that was eventually going to cost South Africa their first wicket. Deploying his defensive push, Amla couldn't help but edge the ball through towards the second slip where anxious Rohit Sharma got down just in time to grab it cleanly. It was a beautifully set-up dismissal where the bowler's line and length combined perfectly with the field setting, deployed in anticipation of the opposition batsman's shot. If Bumrah's early breakthrough got the Indian fans on the edge of their seats, Rohit's unique celebration after taking the catch doubled the fun on social media.

  13. Before the release of the final installment in the Avengers series, there were only two movies people were talking about - 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion'. Now, everyone has just one thing on their minds - 'Avengers: Endgame'. Arka Media Works Thanos is the greatest supervillain ever, not just in the Marvel Universe but also in the lives of Bollywood filmmakers, as 'Avengers: Endgame' turned every desi movie to dust with its release. In fact, 'Avengers: Endgame' has entered the 100-crore club in its second day itself. Marvel Studios If a movie can land a Marvel fan in hospital, because she cried uncontrollably while watching it, you can only expect it to reach greater heights and break all the records. On its first day, the movie earned Rs 53.10 crore and became the biggest opener in India, beating the likes of 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion'. On Saturday, it earned Rs 51.40 crore and cakewalked into the Rs 100 crore club in just two days, with Rs 104 crore. Marvel Studios Even before its release, the movie has been making every desi marvel fan go batshit crazy and its release has only made people lose their minds further. The Russo brothers' directorial released in 2845 screens in India in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu language, and the movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Brie Larson, among others.
  14. Another day, another disappointment for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) who continue their winless streak in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) having played four matches and have found themselves at the bottom of the league's points table. After captain Kohli got dismissed by a magnificent Shreyas Gopal (who ended up with a three-wicket-haul), the second RCB opener, Parthiv Patel put the burden on his shoulders to help his side reach a respectable total of 158. Patel's bat contributed with 67 runs off 41 balls which also included 9 boundaries and a maximum. However, Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener Jos Buttler and Steve Smith were too hot to handle for the men in red and gold as they spearheaded Royals to win their first game of the season. Having said that, Tuesday's match against Rajasthan got Virat Kohli an incredible feat to boast about as it provided him with the opportunity to captain an IPL squad for the 100th time and make him only the third cricketer in the world to do so, behind Chennai Super Kings star Mahendra Singh Dhoni (162 matches) and former IPL player, Gautam Gambhir (129 matches between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils. Today our skipper – @imVkohli becomes the third captain in IPL history to play as captain in 100 matches. Congratulations Virat, keep playing bold! #PlayBold pic.twitter.com/Ar5FASqB24 — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 2, 2019 Ironically, such a record that should normally bring a sense of pride to any athlete, also brings immense shame to RCB skipper as Kohli has the worst record amongst the men who have reached such a status. Amongst the 162 games led by Dhoni, he has a win percentage of 60.24% while Gambhir's is at 55.42% with three and two titles under their belts, respectively. Kohli, on the other hand, is at a below average mark of 46.87% wins as captain. Not to forget the fact that Bengaluru have never won the trophy. With another loss of the season in what appears to be a lost cause, RCB fans have resorted to humour to hide their pain but we see right through it: RCB Fans: When will we win our 1st IPL title???

One of the greatest batsmen to have ever represented the Men in Blue, Rahul Dravid has fulfilled his duties as the coach of the junior Indian cricket team and helped them experience the level of success that not even the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would have seen coming their way. It was under the leadership of Mr Dependable himself, that Team India A was able to completely dismantle the visiting England Lions for a five-match one-day series and not to forget the 2018 World Cup victory by the Under-19 squad captained by Shubhman Gill along with the 2018 Asia cup championship. It was therefore rather obvious to have Dravid become a major part of the revamping of the National Cricket Academy (NCA), a Bengaluru-based facility that will ensure state of the art technology and other provisions to contribute even more towards the betterment of the future of cricket in India. "Rahul has been handling junior cricket for a while now and the results have been phenomenal. It's only natural that he had to get involved with affairs at the NCA (in the present position). Now, he's determined to bring about a complete turnaround at the academy. With the kind of vision he has, it's already a given now that this is his role until he decides to stay,” Times of India quoted an informed official. Dravid will be entrusted with the role of building the entire academy from scratch while hiring the entire coaching team from all around the country. “For all practical purposes, NCA will now be Rahul's baby,” said another official. His vision has already started to make some significant changes to the pre-established rules. For instance, back in the day, 15 out of 20 people were selected to go further for the training camp, the other five would have been asked to go home, leaving behind their dreams. Dravid, however, has made it clear that all 20 athletes will remain with the academy throughout the camp. While a lot of people had hoped that the BCCI would have selected 'The Wall' as the leader of the main Indian cricket roster instead of Ravi Shastri, this may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for the future Indian athletes, having being taught under the wings of the very best at an early stage. With a rock solid base to build their cricketing career upon, Dravid's NCA might as well be the place where dreams are transformed into reality.
  16. As the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) came calling with a scintillating contest between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the cricket fans geared up for multiple individual clashes that the opening match had to offer. While many were keen to witness the battle between 'Captain Cool' MS Dhoni and 'Captain Fearless' Virat Kohli, others were eager to see the contest between RCB's explosive batting line-up and CSK's experienced bowling unit. Amongst the key battles, there was one between Suresh Raina and the RCB skipper in the race to reach 5,000 runs in the IPL. Ahead of the IPL opener, Raina had amassed 4,985 runs in 3,601 balls (1167 dots, 1533 singles, 256 twos, 11 threes, 448 fours, 1 five and 185 sixes) in the tournament. He was just 15 runs shy of becoming the first player to score 5,000 IPL runs. Twitter/@IPL On the other hand, Kohli had scored 4,948 runs in 3,784 balls (1319 dots, 1575 singles, 266 twos, 11 threes, 435 fours and 178 sixes) in the IPL. While Raina looked in touching distance, Kohli needed 52 runs to achieve the unique feat. But, after Dhoni won the toss and asked RCB to bat first, many would have probably tipped the Indian captain to reach there first. But, contrary to popular perception, Kohli, akin to majority of his teammates, had a forgettable outing as he was sent back into the hut for just six runs. On a raging turner of a track at the MA Chidambaram stadium, perennial underachievers RCB were bowled out for a mere 70 runs. Twitter/@IPL With Kohli bottling his opportunity, all eyes were on Raina when he came out to bat in the third over. After surviving a run-out scare (thanks to Mohammad Siraj's fumble while collecting the ball), Raina tickled the ball towards fine leg for an easy single in the ninth over, etching his name in the history books as the first-ever player to complete 5,000 runs in the IPL.

  17. Respawn's 'Apex Legends' has been hitting some impressive gaming milestone since it's launch. The game recently hit 50 million players worldwide, and now it's been brought to light that the title has become the biggest free-to-play launch of all time. © Respawn According to a report by market research firm Superdata, 'Apex Legends' is not just a big hit for EA, it's also the became biggest free-to-play title launch of all time by pulling in a whopping $92 million in revenue in its launch month i.e. February across all platforms. Not just that, 'Apex Legends' also became one of the top ten grossing games in February. Reportedly, most of the money which 'Apex Legends' made was on consoles, not PC. The game ranked fourth in console revenue and sixth in PC among all titles. Here, take a look: © Superdata 'Fortnite', as you can see, still topped 'Apex Legends' on both the platforms by generating more than $300 million in a single month. Yes, 'Apex Legends' may not have killed 'Fortnite' in terms of the revenue, but there's no denying that 'Apex Legends' is just as popular as 'Fortnite', if not more. I mean, I personally play 'Apex Legends' a lot more than 'Fortnite' nowadays, and I know I am not alone. 'Apex Legends', in case you don't know, is a free-to-play title that's available on EA's Origin. The game has revenue streams via its virtual coin currency, which allows players to purchase Apex Packs and splurge on cosmetic upgrades. In fact, even some legends like Mirage, Caustic and the new Octane are behind a paywall for those who want to add them quickly instead of earning points to acquire them.
  18. Earlier this February, Bayern Munich did relatively well after travelling to the Anfield and restricting a rampant Liverpool brigade to a goalless draw in the first-leg of the Round of 16 clash in the UEFA Champions League. Given Liverpool's form and might, the 0-0 draw had initially tilted the Round of 16 battle in Bayern's favour ahead of the second-leg tie. But, on 14th March, when the Reds travelled to the home of the German giants, the events that unfolded at the Alliaz Arena, broke all myths that people had from the first-leg. Sadio Mane looked at his destructive best, scoring two key goals for the visitors who secured their berth for the quarterfinals on the back of a 3-1 (on aggregate) win. © Reuters The only silver lining for Niko Kovac's men turned out to be Joel Matip's own goal in 39th minute. But, even that wasn't enough to thwart the efforts of Liverpool to progress further in Europe's top competition. If Bayern's hapless performance on a wet in Munich failed to impress their fans, winger Franck Ribery's decision to sport a weird hairdo in the match, further made the butt of all jokes on the social media. For many 35-year-olds, natural hair is an absolute luxury. While some worry about losing it, others are just lucky enough to still have it. And, when you look at Ribery, you know he belongs to the latter category. But, still, for reasons unknown, the Bayern winger made a complete mess of his natural hair. © Reuters His decision to shave the sides and carve a number '7' at one end made him a laughing stock as soon as he stepped on the pitch to face Liverpool. For someone his age, Ribery looked like a kid whose bid to stand out amongst his mates went horribly wrong. Following Bayern's loss, football fans (mostly Anfield loyalists) targetted the French footballer for his surprising haircut. pic.twitter.com/VjvOGay2Tw — airlangga (@gagahyta) March 14, 2019 Franck Ribery's haircut pic.twitter.com/cw9lbEQQ9j — Cardigan Bravo (@Heisenbert) March 13, 2019 Massive respect for Franck Ribery, who paid tribute to James Milner last night by shaving our midfielder's number into his hair, aged 35 ðð¾ pic.twitter.com/obRrL8zdNq — Empire of the Kop (@empireofthekop) March 14, 2019 Absolute hacking bit of kit, this guy! ð — Chris Toft (@ChrisToft1986) March 14, 2019 Pure eye cabbage right there ð — Trev Schott (@shenobi78) March 14, 2019 ð‍âï¸ Franck Ribéry will be 36-years-old next month and he's still getting haircuts like my little cousin...#BAYLIV pic.twitter.com/kf3RL9ohSf — The Sportsman (@TheSportsman) March 13, 2019 Franck Ribéry is going to be 36 next month.

  20. A great leader, fantastic centre-back and undisputed talisman at Santiago Bernabeu, Sergio Ramos has been one of the vital cogs in Real Madrid's set-up over the years. His popularity is second to none which also explains the hefty paycheck he draws every week. But, while the Madridistas hail him as their true leader, Ramos has a side which, every now and then, overshadows his performance. Deliberate or not, his arm-tackle against Mohammed Salah during the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool last season had caused a huge backlash amongst the football fans across the globe. For the Madrid skipper, it seems, winning - not just the game, but every single tackle - is everything. And, those who've seen him in action would agree that the Spaniard doesn't mind getting his hands a little dirty, quite literally on many occasions. © Reuters And, Los Blancos' recent La Liga encounter against Girona was a testimony to that. If Madrid' 1-2 loss to the least-favoured club came as a surprise, Ramos' red card in the 90th minute further spelt their doom. The Madrid centre-back was given a yellow card for a handball inside the box which resulted in a penalty for the visitors in the 64th minute. After 20 minutes of levelling the game, Girona got in front through a beautiful strike from Portu. And, with the hosts trailing by a goal, the home fans were handed another blow in the 90th minute when Ramos was handed his second yellow card for kicking Girona's Cristhian Stuani in another bad and unwanted foul. © Reuters Owing to his red card, Ramos etched his name in the history books for a La Liga record that he wouldn't be able to forget anytime soon. Thanks to his latest antics, Ramos now has 20 red cards to his name in the Spanish league - most by any footballer in La Liga. He also became the only player for Real Madrid to receive 25 red cards in his career so far. If his red card left Real Madrid frustrated, Ramos' comments after the game further showed his flawed understanding of the game. "Looking at the result, I'd be lying if I said I didn't force, it is not to underestimate the opponent nor to think that the series is over, but in football, you have to make tough decisions," the Real Madrid captain said.

  21. Think you're a basketball expert? Let's put your knowledge to the test...
  22. If football matches are capable of enticing fans, the players' transfers dictate the fate of clubs who're in contention to secure the signatures of their valued assets. At the same time, the transfer windows can turn out to be a heartbreak for some fans, while it can excite others with new joinees. But, amidst all the hullabaloo, a lot of money is splurged by the football clubs to attract their potential targets which further equates to top wages and big-buck signings. While the summer transfer window has come to an end, there is no stopping the high-profile moves in club football. After luring Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid last summer, Serie A giants Juventus have now managed to steal dynamic midfielder Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal. Massimiliano Allegri's side will now be bolstered with the presence of the Gunners star at the Turin-based club. © Reuters The 28-year-old signed a four-year deal with Serie A champions for a staggering 7.8 million dollars per season. In the process, he became the highest paid British Footballer of all time (in terms of basic salary). The Zebras tried really hard to make Ramsey their prey in the January window, but couldn't succeed then. Fortunately, all their hard-work to didn't go to waste as they finally caught hold of him by the end. As per the pre-contract signed by former Arsenal player, he would be joining Juventus in July, after the completion of his contract with The Gunners. The British international hasn't cost Juventus anything because his contract with Arsenal finishes in June. But still, 'as a result of the registration of the player, Juventus will have to pay a wholesome amount of 3.7 million euros ($4.1 million) by July 10.' © Reuters Though the English midfielder was found nowhere near his game this season, he managed to provide mere 3 assists and could find the net just twice in his 22 appearances for the club. Despite all the stats, Ramsey is still considered one of the best midfielders in the PL. And joining forces with Miralem Pjanic, Paulo Dybala and Sami Khedira, could certainly produce some majestic performances for The White-Blacks. Looking at the current situation of the Unai Emery's Arsenal, Ramsey's move to the Serie A club seems like the best option for the three-time FA Cup winner. Let's hope that signing proves to be an asset for the star-studded Juventus line-up and helps them bag more trophies.
  23. 'Game of Thrones' is hands down one of the most popular TV series of recent times, and we simply cannot ignore the ardent fan following the show enjoys. From mind-boggling fan theories to crazy fans going out of their way to prove their loyalty, 'Games of Thrones' can boast of it all. © HBO However, much like it is the case with most fandoms, GOT fans have also proven their allegiance to the show time and again. So it is only expected that the makers of 'Game of Thrones' be gracious towards this outpouring of faith and support from fans all around the world. Well, seems like the GOT team has taken note of its fans' undying love for the show, and they decided to share it with the rest of the world. So HBO recently released its own 'Fan Anthem' #ForTheThrone on GOT's official YouTube channel, ahead of the premiere of the last season in April. The video is a visual montage of tributes GOT fans paid to show, and the best part is that it includes the musical tribute of a 18-year-old Kashmiri boy. Sufiyan Malik from Srinagar in Kashmir can be seen in the video, playing the traditional Rabab, which has been taken from his Game of Thrones tribute video called 'The Cure'. As if the haunting and soulful musical tribute itself was not enough, the video play out is absolutely stunning with its picturisation, and choice of location. But what's more, Tyrion and the Night King also make a cameo appearance in the tribute video! You gotta check out the tribute, 'cause Sufiyan Malik did all of us GOT fans out there real proud.
  24. Ever since Finance Minister Piyush Goyal presented the budget in the Lok Sabha, the whole nation has been busy deliberating its pros and cons, and what it might have in store for the Indian citizens. Being NDA government's last budget before the 2019 general elections, it was looked upon as a potential chance to woo the voters. From financial support to farmers to noticeable tax rebates, the Budget 2019 had many offerings which allowed it to dominate social media trends over the weekend. There were hilarious memes, funny jokes and all the chatter you needed about the new budget. But, amid all that, there came an epic photobombing episode that made a young girl an internet sensation overnight. After the new budget was tabled in Lok Sabha, Union Minister Jayant Sinha was busy expressing his views while talking to the reporters outside Parliament. But, as Sinha spoke about how the government has “always presented a good budget and this year is no different”, a young girl standing behind him made full use of the opportunity to photobomb his interview. Walking back and forth behind Sinha, the white sweatshirt-wearing teenager made her presence felt by looking in the camera and then sticking her tongue out. She, then, did the same thing multiple times till the interview ended. While Sinha went about his business, the young girl, with her antics, went viral on the social media platforms. Who's this kid? Photo bombing a minister outside parliament on budget day is no mean feat. #Budget2019 pic.twitter.com/pwIpGXaF9e — Devjyot Ghoshal (@DevjyotGhoshal) February 1, 2019 Lololol...
