  1. It was an important day yesterday. Well, to be precise, the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday. Captain America is an integral part of Avengers and Chris Evans is an integral part of his MCU costars' life. Birthday wishes were pouring in from everywhere - even from us - and it was great to see everyone come together to celebrate this human golden retriever. Mark Ruffalo being cute like always. Happiest of birthdays to the fantastic @ChrisEvans ð¥³ð Love you, Bro. Always there when you need him. Wishing you all the best today! pic.twitter.com/WJT2kbudN5 — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) June 13, 2019 Even Chris is happy and cute while replying. Awwww, buddy. You're a gem ð — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 13, 2019 And, Mark wasn't done. Glad you are here, man. — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) June 13, 2019 Okay, that sounds a little serious, I hope everything's fine. Then comes another Chris wishing him, actually singing 'happy birthday' for him on air with Tessa Thompson. Since both Evans and Hemsworth are like BFFs, the school kids who had to be separated during interviews, I'm disappointed Hemsworth didn't post a goofy BTS picture for him. But now let's look at the birthday wish we were waiting for. Yes, Robert Downey Jr HAD to top every birthday wish Chris got yesterday. One of the best parts of 'Avengers: Endgame' was the whole Cap vs Cap scene, but do you remember how it ended? Yes, with Cap admiring his own ass. Well, even RDJ remembers and wished 'America's ass' a happy birthday. Happy birthday to America's ass. The world's a better place, and I owe you a kiss on the cheek! @ChrisEvans pic.twitter.com/iCFRSu0DIH — Robert Downey Jr (@RobertDowneyJr) June 13, 2019 Take the kiss, Chris! ðð — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) June 13, 2019 Like that. AHHHHHH pic.twitter.com/mKAhKUTrbm — rebekah (@stevetonyx) June 13, 2019 Same. Rdj is me looking at this post pic.twitter.com/A2U5eYLdn9 — Our Love: Robert Downey Jr (@our_rdj) June 13, 2019 That gif tho. Some things really should be celebrated! ð¨ #HappyBirthdayChrisEvans pic.twitter.com/Gpsl1HBWrS — Chris Evans USA FanSource (@ChrisEvans_USA) June 13, 2019 That emoji is reserved for Chris Evans and Chris Evans only. ð pic.twitter.com/Jf7pQiS6Qg — Christopher (@stevngrntrogers) June 13, 2019 We won't get to see this again. They are so cute together I'm really gonna miss them so muchð­ð­ pic.twitter.com/2yQMNH2QIb — Team Downey (@TeamDowney1965) June 13, 2019
  2. It's the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday, yay! What can I say about Chris Evans? He's a great actor, he's a great person, he's literally a golden retriever in human form. This near-perfect human being turned 38 today and we obviously need to celebrate him, and what better way than to look back at all of his best scenes from the MCU? Let's be real, he can do whatever role he wants, but he will always be Captain America (sorry, Anthony Mackie but that's what you get for a boring Black Mirror episode). As Cap, he's given us many incredible movies with unforgettable dialogues and scenes. While every scene with him is great, of course, I have listed out the best, most memorable scenes. Enjoy! Also, happy birthday, Cap! 1. The best Cap scene ever/ Hammer Time This scene, this freaking scene, is hands down the best MCU moment for me. I can watch it a hundred times and still be as excited as the first time. Such a crucial moment, Thanos is overpowering Thor and will probably kill him, but wait, in comes Cap to show he's worthy. Nothing can top this. 2. Cap vs Cap Another great 'Endgame' scene that we didn't know he needed until it actually happened. From “I can do this all day” “yeah, I know, I know” to “Bucky is alive” to “this IS America's ass”, the whole Cap vs Cap fight scene was perfect, nothing can make it better. 3. “There's only one God” What a dialogue, what a way to introduce Thor in 'The Avengers', and Steve being Steve and jumping out of planes. Also, him calling Natasha 'ma'am' proving he really is from the 40s. 4. When he blocks Thor's hammer Well, now we know how and why he could do this. He's also so worthy! Also, the moment Thor realizes they're not some random people. 5. Lift scene(s) A great scene from an overall great movie. The 'lift scene' is so memorable, it's so well done. Anyone should be afraid of getting into a lift with Chris Evans - or make fun of it - but either way, it's still one of the best MCU scenes till date and that's why there was a callback to that in 'Endgame' as well. Cap saying 'Hail Hydra' will never not be funny to me. 6. Cap is strong, like very very strong If you were not even a little turned on by Chris Evans' muscles and strength in this scene, then you're not human and you're also lying. The guy is so freaking strong, he literally could stop a fucking helicopter from flying. Strongest Avenger right here, people. Hulk who? 7. Nomad Cap! You cannot tell me that Cap's entry in 'Infinity War' wasn't one of the best scenes in a movie filled with incredible scenes. To be honest, it was the perfect way to introduce the newest Avenger - Captain America's cool new beard (and no I'm not talking about Peggy or Sharon). 8. AVENGERS…assemble Well, we started with 'Endgame' and we'll end with 'Endgame', obviously. This might not be a long scene but it's a damn powerful one. Everyone who got dusted is back - which again was a visual treat in itself - but when Cap comes in front and does what he does best - lead - it was just great to watch. Also, it was the last time these Avengers will ever assemble and the added emotional aspect makes it an unforgettable scene from the entire MCU.
  3. Ayushmann Khurrana is literally the man of the hour RN. Ever since the trailer for 'Article 15' rolled out, we can't stop looking at his amped-up, fashion-forward appearances. This man has been wise in making his style choices and knows exactly how to arrive all spiffed up, no matter the occasion. From sporting a whacky printed blazer to donning a long plaid shirt, Ayushmann has left no box unchecked and brings his A-game every damn time. As for his latest look, Ayushmann is camouflaging our feed with this statement-making outfit. Check it out: A splendid choice that steers clear of the usual, has to be a neon camouflage hype tracksuit by Abhishek Paatni, courtesy AK's stylist, Isha Bhansali. Casual, street and sharp, the silhouettes are engineered with modern fashion dialogue. © Instagram/Isha Bhansali But what grabbed our attention the most were his White Gucci sneakers. Ayushmann opted for Rhyton sneakers with NY Yankees™ print. The chunky sneakers have a retro vibe that looks minimal yet fashionable. We totally recommend these street-cred shoes that are comfortable and a worthy move to cop this summer. © Gucci As far as the design goes, the sneakers are inspired by the New York Yankees Baseball Hat which is incorporated in the Cruise 2019 collection. The inner sole has a blue rosebud print while the outer leather is debossed with the Gucci logo at the back sole. The heel centre is elevated, lending enough height to look suave and sophisticated. These sneakers are also available in eclectic blue colour. © Gucci © Gucci © Gucci When it comes to the cost of these white sneakers in India, they retail at a price of Rs 61,823. © Gucci © Gucci White Sneakers will always be on the fashion radar and no matter where you plan to nail the outfit, these trendsetters are a surefire way to stand out than the rest. I mean, look at them. © Gucci These white Gucci sneakers are truly a great investment at the price of Rs 61,823. They dial up the style formula and make a dramatic statement each time you step out wearing them. Not just that, these sneakers do the talking even with the most basic outfit of yours. Don't we all want that?

  5. Microsoft wrapped up its best E3 briefing in a long time with over 60 games. But do you know what stole the show? Cyberpunk 2077's gameplay reveal, featuring Keanu Reeves. Yes, the 'John Wick' star Keanu Reeves is actually a part of a game, and we seriously don't know how to react. Like, WHAT? Is this really happening? Well, if you're just as surprised as us, then let us tell you that it's indeed true. CD Projekt Red just released a new trailer at Microsoft's E3 briefing that ends with one of the most unexpected celebrity appearances that we've ever encountered: Keanu Reeves. Yes, John Wick himself, in all his glory! As of now, we're not entirely sure as to what role he's going to play in the game, but we're assuming it's going to be a significant role, because why not? He's Keanu after all. © YouTube Honestly, we don't even care if his role is significant for the story or not. We're just glad that one of the biggest stars is a part of one of the most anticipated games of all time. In case you missed Microsoft's E3 briefing, then it's worth pointing out that Keanu was actually there on stage during the presentation to reveal Cyberpunk 2077's release date. Yes, Keanu actually appeared on stage to chat about the game. Before leaving, he revealed that CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 will release on April 16th, 2020. Yeah, we're still a long way from the game's official release date, but we are quite happy that we finally have a release date. Now, we just wait to see if we get to play alongside Keanu or against him!
  6. The year was 2006. As I sat writing my final exams for Class VI, the following question appeared on the paper: “Music is a language that transcends all boundaries.” Elaborate. Already prepared for a question like this (having our ears drilled by our teacher to the same effect), I started scribbling out the well-worded answer I had slogged over during the last few days. At age 11, one can hardly fathom the depth of William Wordsworth's eloquent words to define a song he heard a maiden sing in a mellifluous voice in a language he didn't understand. Perhaps like Mr Wordsworth who couldn't decipher the song in 'The Solitary Reaper'', my 2006 version was also unable to grasp the complexity of music. Thirteen years later, I can say that I have understood the true meaning of the question. Music is everywhere, you just need to the heart to perceive it: Birds chirping, the din of the market, TV Shows, movies, the clanging of vessels, the rhythmic clinking of the clock, the soft thumping of one's heart. I found out that my favourite kind of music was the one you could forget yourself into, like the score of a movie; the ethereal orchestral symphony which transcends you to a place where you can start envisioning the music. You and music become one, the notes seem to materialize in front of you, heal you. The cacophony of the world is forgotten. There is a fascinating charm to these scores; they are not mere theme setters for the movie. Movie scores exemplify and elevate important moments of the protagonist's life; be it Batman putting on his suit for the first time, or Nina finally turning into the Black Swan, or Rose finding love with Jack, or Frodo defeating Gollum once and for all. So, especially for you, here is a list of 21 best movie scores of all time: 1. The Dark Knight Trilogy (2005-2012): The fact that Hans Zimmer is a musical prodigy par excellence is no secret. And that his musical score for movies is heavenly is as trivial a detail as say: the Sun rises in the East. With Goth undertones, Mr Zimmer, along with James Newton Howard, makes Batman come alive in our minds with the intense score of the three movies, in this re-imagining of Batman as an anti-hero by Christopher Nolan, starring Christian Bale. (The Holy Trinity of Films: Nolan, Bale, and Zimmer). © Syncopy/Legendary Pictures/ Patalex III Productions/Warner Bros. Pictures The music has been composed in such a way that it connects you to Batman like never before; music which embodies the conflict Bruce faces, the dilemma of Batman, and the choices he has to make. Listening to it echoes a tremendously powerful emotion within. © Syncopy/Legendary Pictures/ Patalex III Productions/Warner Bros. Pictures Be it “A Storm is Coming”, with its menacing, ominous tone. Or the eerie “Why So Serious?”. The powerful “Rise” which awakens a part of your soul. Not to forget “Bane's Chant”. Goosebumps! A score that will haunt you even after you have finished watching the movies. And that is the brilliance of Hans Zimmer. 2. Sense and Sensibility (1995): Other than being a marvellous movie in itself, this Emma Thompson-written masterpiece of Jane Austen's novel, directed by Ang Lee, boasting of an extremely talented ensemble cast has one of the most soulful scores of all time. Patrick Doyle's genius shines through the melodic symphony of the entire soundtrack, engaging the viewer (and listener) to relate to the struggles of the characters, be it Marianne's lost love (Miss Grey) or her coming of age (Weep You No More Sad/The Dreame ), or the anticipation of meeting her suitor (Mr Willoughby) or Elinor's strolls through the gardens with Edward (My Father's Favorite). © Columbia Pictures/ Mirage Enterprises Nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Score, there's no doubt that it deserves the praise it has got; the way it changes from a dreamy fancy to a mellow elegy, to a more serious rendition as the movie progresses is beautifully indescribable. With a classical base, the music transports you to the countryside of England, as Elinor and Marianne navigate the atrocities of the elite English social life. 3. Beetlejuice (1988): Weird, eerie and perfect for a goofy movie with eccentric characters. With Tim Burton as director, you know it is going to be a crazy joyride. Add to it the musical mastermind of Danny Elfman, and it is the best of both worlds. © The Geffen Company/ Warner Bros. Pictures Quirky, with a calypso vibe, which perfectly replicates the madness on screen, it will make you dance to its whimsical tune! 4. Titanic (1997): Because our 'hearts will go on' till eternity! Romance personified, James Cameron's magnum opus' score by legendary composer James Horner is the reason why 'Titanic' makes you believe in love. Based on soft strings, violins, and the piano, the score has an ethereal beauty. © Paramount Pictures/ 20th Century Fox/ Lightstorm Entertainment A beatific score which makes you feel that you are in heaven; be it the romantic “Rose” which plays when Jack sees Rose for the first time (and leitmotifs all throughout), the travel vibes from “Never An Absolution”, or the uplifting notes of “Southampton”. As the story moves forward, the score's feeling of astonishment and joy is punctuated by the dark “Death of the Titanic”, a sad dirge when the ship meets its perilous fate. My heart always breaks when the orchestra plays “Nearer My God to Thee” while the bandleader, Wallace Hartley, bravely keeps playing, all the while knowing what lies ahead. Not to mention “My Heart Will Go On” by Céline Dion which has been a love anthem since the movie released. 5. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001-2003): Just one word: Marvelous! A truly fabulous score by music composer par brilliance, Howard Shore, who created a score so ingenious for all the three movies that it can hardly be compared to another. The music is fantasy personified; there are about about100 specially crafted leitmotifs which keep on changing in intonation and tempo. What is even more fascinating is that each theme corresponds to a particular culture of Middle-earth, just think about it! © New Line Cinema/ WingNut Films With over four years of conducting, writing, composing and orchestrating, this intricate, sweeping score is a labour of love; Shore's love child with music. Moreover, it is one of the greatest scores of all times with respect to its length, soloists, instrumentation, among other attributes. With its operatic sound and antiquated feeling, listening to the score is an indulgence in itself. Another enthralling thing about the score is its nuance: it doesn't just reflect the scene or doesn't only suggest the mood, it tells a story, narrates the drama underlying in the scene. If that isn't creative brilliance, I don't what is! 6. Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961): If it wasn't famous enough for its iconic fashion, courtesy of Audrey Hepburn's Holly Golightly, the music is another feather in the cap of this beautiful, beautiful movie. © Jurow-Shepherd/ Paramount Pictures Henry Mancini's melodious score is a romantic extravagance which makes you fall in love with it the minute you hear it. My personal favourite has to be “Moon River” (with lyrics by Johnny Mercer), especially the one Audrey Hepburn croons while sitting on the balcony. The opening scene where an instrumental “Moon River” plays, makes you feel a strange mix of emotions as Holly steps out of a cab, with a coffee and a Danish. (All hail Blake Edwards!) Longingly looking at the necklace showcased on Tiffany's store window, lazily munching on the Danish, Holly Golightly signifies all of us contemplating over our desires. © Jurow-Shepherd/ Paramount Pictures 7. Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope (1977): Iconic! Who hasn't heard to this legendary score? A score which literally gives “a new hope”. © Lucasfilm/ 20th Century Fox George Lucas' masterpiece, scored by composer John Williams, is a movie which is synonymous with the sci-fi revolution in cinema. But its musical theme is just as fabulous as the movie; a sound which makes you fill with nostalgia and hope. 8. Gladiator (2000): Ridley Scott's classic movie has an extremely powerful score which makes you feel as though you have stepped into the action of the Colosseum in Rome. © Scott Free Productions/ Red Wagon Entertainment/ Universal Pictures/ DreamWorks Pictures Another one of Hans Zimmer's creations, with vocals by Lisa Gerrard, the music encapsulates Maximus' struggles. The music is laced with heroism, with the score expositing the valiant efforts of Maximus as he fights his way as a Gladiator in Ancient Rome. “Elysium” has a penetrating feeling; it touches your heart in an intensely personal way. 9. Lawrence of Arabia (1962): An epic movie starring Peter O'Toole, directed by David Lean, based on one of history's game-changers, T.E. Lawrence. The main theme has a mystical quality about it; a mixture of Arabian Night-esque music, Western vibes, and military music. Maurice Jarre's musical genius shines throughout the score. It makes you feel you have travelled into the sandy deserts of the Middle East; you can envision the dunes, the camels, the caravans. Essentially, it mirrors the plot of the movie: the conflict between the Ottoman Turks and nomadic Arabian tribes (guided by T.E. Lawrence) resulting in a guerilla war during World War I. © Horizon Pictures/ Columbia Pictures Not only is the music great to hear, with its loud booming quality, but it is also visually appealing, and falls perfectly in line with the scene on screen: the rolling motion of caravans at a leisurely pace, pulled by camels, along the desert. The underlying bass line only intensifies the effect. The tambourine music in parts of the repetitions of the score adds to the exotic Middle Eastern charm. 10. Back to the Future (1985): One of the most iconic time-travel centric sci-fi movies of all time, 'Back to the Future's' main theme echoes an adventurous, futuristic vibe. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, 'Back to the Future' is one of the most famous movies of the 80s, marking the second of multiple collaborations between Robert Zemeckis and Alan Silvestri (who would go on to become one of the most illustrious composers of the era). © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The fanfare is perhaps the most recognized of movie themes; just the right amount of heroic and quirky! Also, the soundtrack has gems like “The Power of Love” (by Huey Lewis and the News) and “Johnny B. Goode” (by Chuck Berry), which are trendsetting songs in their own right! All aboard The DeLorean! 11. The Godfather (1972): Everything about 'The Godfather' is epic: the novel, the movies, and the music. Francis Ford Coppola's crowning glory was scored by Italian composer Nino Rota who is responsible for the legendary 'The Godfather Waltz'. © Alfran Productions/ Paramount Pictures Borrowing from his previously scored movie, 'Fortunella', Nino elevated the Italian feel of the music in 'The Godfather', capturing the misfortune of the characters thus invoking a tragic vibe in the score. 'The Godfather Waltz' and 'Love Theme from The Godfather' are a testament to the previous fact and to the ingenuity of Nino Rota's musical dexterity. 'The Pickup' captures the gangster theme of the movie with its bouncy, ominous feel. 12. Harry Potter (The First Three Movies) (2001-2004): Magical, mysterious and haunting. A trip down memory lane with this gem of a score, composed by John Williams. © Warner Bros. Pictures/ Heyday Films 'Hedwig's Theme' is always a tearjerker, with its plaintive notes emoting Harry's loneliness which slowly turns into a merry, elevating melody echoing Harry's entrée into the wizarding world. Will I cry when I hear it? Always. 13. Avengers: Endgame (2019): A fairly new movie on the list but kudos to Alan Silvestri's prowess as a composer who can wield magic with the conductor's baton (his personal Mjölnir, if you will), this movie's soundtrack has surpassed its predecessors while keeping the nostalgia intact. Sweeping, powerful and intense, the music sets the perfect tone for the finale of the Avengers franchise. Be it the war sequence, Captain America finally lifting the Mjölnir, the appearance of the heroes left behind (Portals), or the final Snap (The Real Hero), the score effortlessly manages to pull you in. © Marvel Studios/ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures 'Whatever it Takes' touches you in ways you couldn't imagine, making you nostalgic about the sacrifices all the Avengers have made to reach here. My personal favourite is the jazzy 'It's Been A Long, Long Time' by Harry James (sung by Kitty Kallen) which plays as the movie comes to an end. Such a beautiful way to say goodbye! And such a satisfying visual to accompany it! 14. Requiem for a Dream (2000): A trippy movie with a hauntingly eerie soundtrack which makes you lose your mind (in a good way!). Darren Aronofsky's unconventional film about unfulfilled human desires is made more compelling by its theme, scored by Clint Mansell, ostentatiously using György Ligeti's “Lux Aeterna” in most parts. © Thousand Words/ Protozoa Pictures/ Artisan Entertainment The score is ominous, a bit tenebrous (a quality of Aronofsky's movies) and intentionally raw. The music plays an important role in the life of the characters, mirroring their cravings and addictions, and the extent they'll go for it. 15. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968): Another groundbreaking sci-fi movie, directed by eccentric genius Stanley Kubrick who (in)famously scrapped all the music created by Alex North for the movie (without informing him), was scored entirely by classical music. © Stanley Kubrick Productions/ Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Stanley Kubrick decided to go with legendary classical pieces: Richard Strauss' poem 'Also Sprach Zarathustra', the waltz “The Blue Danube” by Johann Strauss II, and “Lux Aeterna” by György Ligeti, which have since become synonymous with the movie in such a way that it is impossible to think about 2001 without “The Blue Danube” playing in your mind. His reason was that he wanted his movie to be more of an aural sensory experience, not reliant on dialogue or verbal cues, thus using grand, majestic, soulful compositions from the classical past of music. Needless to say, the peculiar decision did turn out well for the movie. 16. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982): John Williams scores (no pun intended) again with the music of this adorable movie directed by Steven Spielberg. It captures the essence of childhood: the innocence, the sense of wonder, the inquisitiveness in all of us at that age. It has an emotional feel to it which strikes a chord with the old and young alike, igniting long-forgotten memories. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The best part of the score has to be the flying bicycle(“Flying”)! Joy, amazement, and fun all rolled into the music. And the music for the farewell brings out tears. Every. Single. Time. “E. T. Phone Home!” More like, “E.T. Don't Phone Home!” 17. Gone With The Wind (1939): Scarlett O'Hara's trials and tribulations find their expression in the music of the movie. Scored by Max Steiner, one of the greatest of composers in the Golden Age of Cinema, the score is sufficiently heartbreaking while being majestic in its own right. © Loew's Inc./ Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/ Selznick International Pictures The score is instrumental in charting out the character development; a distinguishing quality of Mr Steiner's work. They don't make them like that anymore! Because “frankly, my dear, they don't give a damn!” about music anymore. 18. Schindler's List (1993): Composed and conducted by John Williams (such a gifted treasure of a man), marking another collaboration with Steven Spielberg, Schindler List's score is a poignant experience. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures Sad and melancholy, it voices the underlying distress and the terrible misfortune of Krakow. 19. Jurassic Park (1993): A score which has become tantamount to peak 90s and dinosaurs, composed by John Williams (again!), is a treat for the ears. © Amblin Entertainment/ Universal Pictures The score encapsulates the miracle of seeing something so unusual that you can't comprehend it through the main theme, then going to amazement and surprise in “Journey to the Island” and capturing the menace when the park turns rogue, with the rest of the score. 20. The Pink Panther (1963): Henry Mancini unleashes his musical genius in a funny way through “The Pink Panther” (another Blake Edwards masterpiece). © Mirisch Company/ United Artists The dubious, cartoony theme from the movie is perhaps as famous as the Taj Mahal and the most overused in movies which want to portray a comical investigation. The theme comprises a saxophone tenor which has over time become its most discerning quality. The score is funny, wacky and as quirky as the lead character, Jacques Clouseau (superbly played by Peter Sellers). The slapstick feel of the movie, the spry tone is effectively embodied by the score. 21. Goldfinger (1964): Do we really need an explanation for this? :P One of the most famous and iconic themes of all time. Shirley Bassey's vocals add to the drama to the music which has become synonymous with the spy thriller series, giving a nod to its sister theme. © Eon Productions/ United Artists 'Goldfinger', with its brassy, jazzy vibe, is one of the best pieces of music in the entire soundtrack of the James Bond movies. Mr Bond's suave sexiness is personified by the legendary theme. Thank you, John Barry! So, which is your favourite? Tell us in the comments!

  8. A few years ago, if we'd have told you that circus animals would be replaced with holograms, you'd have laughed at our faces. But what if we told you that now it's a reality and the Circus Roncalli in Germany actually replaced real animals with holograms to entertain people? Yes, it's just as awesome as it sounds. Here, check it out - Replacing real animals with holograms is a great idea because it's important that we treat animals fairly and fight against animal cruelty. The Circus Roncalli in Germany was set up in 1976 and it's quite awesome to see such an old circus trying to be a pioneer in the fight against animal abuse. So, the circus uses holograms to add animals to their performances with the help of eleven projectors set up across the venue. They have performing animals such as elephants, horses, monkeys, and even fish. They do look very realistic, don't they? © YouTube It's also worth pointing out that the circus made history by becoming the first to replace real animals with holograms. Not only are they putting across a great message to stop animals cruelty, but the circus authorities are also saving a lot of money in the process, since they don't really have animals to feed or transport. Obviously, not everyone will enjoy this, but it's indeed a creative way to showcase what technology can achieve and how it can benefit mankind. Now, let's hope this act will serve as an inspiration to others and we get to see more creative ways of delivering good entertainment.
  9. Here's some excellent news for all animal lovers across the board. The Haryana and Punjab High Court has declared the title of “legal person or entity” to animals in Haryana, granting them the “corresponding rights, duties and liabilities of a living person” and we can't help but feel absolutely elated with this piece of information. (c) Pintrest The ruling has come out nearly a year after the Uttarakhand High Court passed a similar order “to protect and promote greater welfare of animals”. And guess why? Because both the orders were written and passed by Justice Rajiv Sharma, who was transferred from the Uttarakhand High Court to the Punjab & Haryana High Court in Chandigarh. “The corporations, Hindu idols, holy scriptures, rivers have been declared legal entities and thus, in order to protect and promote greater welfare of animals including avian and aquatic, animals are required to be conferred with the status of legal entity/ legal person” - Justice Rajiv Sharma (c) Twitter Justice Rajiv Sharma This is a fantastic stance taken towards animal welfare in the country and we hope things take a turn for the better where wildlife and animals laws are concerned, all over. “The animals should be healthy, comfortable, well nourished, safe, able to express innate behaviour without pain, fear and distress. They are entitled to justice. The animals cannot be treated as objects or property,” the verdict states. That is indeed true. Which means, no animals are now to be found carrying heavy weight, any weight that burdens them or be used for sheer entertainment or even stuffed into a vehicle, that may bring them grave discomfort or ill-health. This is what we need to implement in smaller towns, where animals are treated like a sheer commodity and nothing else. Among the guidelines that were issued by this verdict, the Justice Bench headed by Justice Sharma directed the Haryana Government that draught animals will not carry more than the prescribed weight while pulling a vehicle. The bench also said vehicles like bullock carts, camel carts and even horse carts need to put florescent reflectors at the front and back of the cart, so that they can be seen better, while travelling after sunset. (c)Twitter “All the citizens throughout the state of Haryana are hereby declared persons in loco parentis (meaning – in the place of a parent) as the human face for the welfare/protection of animals.” - Justice Rajiv Sharma We're very grateful towards this verdict and we truly hope more such rules are implemented for animals, for their wellbeing across the country.
  10. Battle Royale games like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite, as we all know, hit mobile gamers hard. With over millions of active players, these titles are still going strong even after all these years. Well, if you're tired of playing the same old battle royale titles, or if you're planning to get aboard the battle royale hype train, then we've got some amazing options. Let's check them out - 1) Crossfire Legends If you like PUBG Mobile, then you'll most likely enjoy Crossfire Legends too. It's a fantastic game and it's developed by Tencent, the guys who made PUBG Mobile. Just like PUBG Mobile, Crossfire Legends' BR mode also lets you dive into a solo, duo or a squad game. Crossfire Legends got great weapons and amazing visuals, so it's definitely worth checking out. In addition to the BR mode, this particular game also offers a few different modes such as Team Deathmatch, Mutant mode, and more. Availability: Android & iOS 2) Call Of Duty: Mobile This one's a fairly new game. Heck, it's not even available for all users, but it's still worth adding to the list. Call of Duty: Mobile, though it's only available for select registered users, has gained a lot of traction. It's got a Battle Royale mode, Team Deathmatch, etc. Call of Duty: Mobile differentiates itself as a tactical shooter, making it one of the very titles out there offering a tactical shooting experience. We've already put up a detailed write up explaining about the key differences from PUBG Mobile and you can check it out right here. In case you haven't tried the game yet, here's how you sideload the game and play it right now. Availability: Android & iOS 3) Fortnite Fortnite is in-part responsible for creating the battle royale hype, so we had to add this to the mix. Unlike PUBG Mobile, this one's a super stable game and a lot of fun to play. Although Fortnite is a battle royale title, the gameplay is slightly different. The only downside to the game is that it's not available on the Google Play Store, so you'll have to get it from the Epic Launcher. It's available directly from the App Store though. Availability: Android & iOS 4) PUBG Mobile Well, lastly we have PUBG Mobile. Yes, the game that popularised the Battle Royale genre. The game lets you jump off to an island with 99 other players and get into an epic battle to get the 'Chicken Dinner'. The game has a bunch of different weapons, looks great, and even works on phones with not-so-powerful specs. One of the best things about this game is that it's constantly updated with new skins, items, etc., so there's always something to look forward to. Give it a try if you haven't already, but keep your play time in check. Availability: Android & iOS
  11. Yesterday's swearing-in ceremony was quite eventful, but one of the biggest things everyone realized was Sushma Swaraj won't be a part of the Modi Government 2.0. The much loved former Minister of External Affairs of India did not take part in the Lok Sabha elections this year but people still had hopes that she would get a nomination for Rajya Sabha and become a part of the Cabinet. But, looks like following some health troubles, she won't be a part of the new government. Thanking PM Narendra Modi in a tweet for giving her the opportunity to serve the people of the country for five years, she said - पà¥à¤°à¤§à¤¾à¤¨ मà¤à¤¤à¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¥ - à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¥ 5 वरà¥à¤·à¥à¤ तठमà¥à¤à¥ विदà¥à¤¶ मà¤à¤¤à¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¥ तà¥à¤° पर दà¥à¤¶à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¤° पà¥à¤°à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¥ भारतà¥à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ सà¥à¤µà¤¾ à¤à¤°à¤¨à¥ à¤à¤¾ मà¥à¤à¤¾ दिया à¤à¤° पà¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¤¾à¤°à¥à¤¯à¤à¤¾à¤² मà¥à¤ वà¥à¤¯à¤à¥à¤¤à¤¿à¤à¤¤ तà¥à¤° पर भॠबहà¥à¤¤ समà¥à¤®à¤¾à¤¨ दिया. मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ªà¤à¥ पà¥à¤°à¤¤à¤¿ बहà¥à¤¤ à¤à¤­à¤¾à¤°à¥ हà¥à¤. हमारॠसरà¤à¤¾à¤° बहà¥à¤¤ यशसà¥à¤µà¤¿à¤¤à¤¾ सॠà¤à¤²à¥, पà¥à¤°à¤­à¥ सॠमà¥à¤°à¥ यहॠपà¥à¤°à¤¾à¤°à¥à¤¥à¤¨à¤¾ हà¥. — Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) May 30, 2019 This was followed by a lot of heartfelt messages, thanking her for all that she's done these past few years. H.E. @SushmaSwaraj leaves a lasting legacy as External Affairs Minister. Thank you Madam for being a true friend, and a partner to the Maldives.

Ab passpost ka matter hua toh kisko tag karna? — Sagar (@sagarcasm) May 30, 2019 People loved her a lot. The country will miss you in the cabinet . You brought in emotions and values to a ministry which always seemed so clinical! — Priyanka Chaturvedi (@priyankac19) May 30, 2019 Exactly. Govts may change, the cabinet may change, but Sushma Swaraj will go down as the most likeable cabinet ministers India has ever had.

I choked. pic.twitter.com/TVwqUC2Rxe — Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) May 30, 2019 So many 'miss you' messages.

A person who is not even in cabinet these time. India is surely gonna miss you mam @SushmaSwaraj you were one of the best foreign minister India has ever witnessed, it would be too tough for the new person to follow your legacy..#ModiReturns #sushmaswaraj pic.twitter.com/7Pxcavzw9y — Manthan Shah (@ShahManthan89) May 30, 2019 She should've been. Why isn't #SushmaSwaraj part of the cabinet? She was by far one of the most effective and efficient ministers in the #ModiSarkar!#SwearinginCeremony — Aniket Pargaonkar ð®ð³ (@aniketsp) May 30, 2019 Yep. I did not realize (until 2 mins back) that #SushmaSwaraj @SushmaSwaraj is not swearing in, which means she will not be a part of #ModiSarkar2 I'm so disappointed because she was one of the best MEA India had.

  13. The world of Netflix is an endless menu that never satiates our appetite. This week, in case you're looking for a little something to binge-watch that catches your fancy and keeps you interested, then allow us to recommend you 'Dead To Me', a dark comedy which depicts life in odd situations and is very real and raw in parts. The brilliant series stars Linda Candellini and Christina Applegate in the leads as Judy and Jen, respectively. The story is simple when you look at it. Jen is a widow who is frustrated with life after her husband Ted dies in a hit-and-run accident and she can't cope with dealing with life as a single mother and is looking for Ted's killer. Then comes Judy who is an over-enthusiastic, super optimistic and suspiciously sacchariferous to the eye. They eventually become friends and Judy helps Jen cope with the loss. It's neither a mush drama, nor is it a soppy soap opera. Together the two women learn to pick each other up and face life, one day at a time. However, there is a looming secret about Jen's dead husband Ted and another stomach-curling revelation which you find out in the first episode only, and that will change your perception about how you perceive the characters completely. People on the internet are absolutely loving it. I watched the first episode of #Deadtome on Netflix yesterday and IT GOT MEEEEEEEE. By the end of the episode was like pic.twitter.com/RlITJWuYJR — RAVEN B. (@RAVIEB) May 23, 2019 Also, Dead To Me, on Netflix is a fucking triumph. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are infinitely watchable, the show balances darkness and humor on the edge of a razor, and I am dying to see what happens next. If you haven't watched it yet, do it now — elan gale (@theyearofelan) May 22, 2019 Just started binge-watching #DeadToMe thinking it was a comedy. Then it's a dark comedy. Now it's a mystery?This show has me laughing on the edge of my seat. Also, I want to write down quotes to work into my real life. Is that wrong?#netflix https://t.co/bgcjqMKMN9 — eleni (@elenikoko2) May 25, 2019 The show is sometimes eerily real, so much that it makes you laugh and you kind of feel bad when you laugh on something you really shouldn't, because it will make you look at yourself and say 'that's me' and you won't feel great about it, but then you're only human. It also has a very 'YOU' vibe to it (another brilliant stalker drama on Netflix) and makes you think about who you can really trust. With 10 interesting episodes, this can be your weekend binge.
  14. Over the last few years, Creatine has gained a lot of popularity amongst athletes and fitness enthusiast. With this surge in popularity, supplement manufacturers have also started offering various forms of Creatine. They claim that these other forms have different usage and some even claim that they are even more effective than the regular Creatine Monohydrate. © Getty Images In this article, I will tell you why the traditional Creatine Monohydrate still remains the best choice as compared to other options available in the market. The other options in which creatine is available these days are the following:- Creatine Ethyl Ester Liquid Creatine Creatine Hydrochloride Creatine Magnesium Chelate Now, let's see why Creatine Monohydrate still beats the other contenders? 1. Better Research Data Available Than Others – At least hundreds of studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of Creatine till date. It is interesting to know that around 90 per cent of them were conducted on Monohydrate only. Only a handful of studies have been conducted on other forms of Creatine out of which only a few of them were conducted on humans. Thus, it won't be wrong to say that conclusive evidence for the effectiveness of creatine is not available for any other form except for Monohydrate. 2. Monohydrate Form Is More Effective Than Others – Creatine Monohydrate has proven to be effective in increasing the strength, power, muscle mass and overall exercise performance in athletes and trained individuals. © Getty Images When Creatine Monohydrate in powdered form was compared to liquid and other forms, the results were not similar. In a study conducted by the Department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation USA it was established that Creatine Monohydrate is better absorbed and effective than ethyl ester and other liquid forms of creatine. In another study conducted by The Centre for Sport and Exercise Science, New Zealand, a group of cyclists who consumed Creatine Monohydrate in powdered form was able to increase their performance by ten per cent and the group that consume liquid creatine had no changes in their performance levels. 3. Better Availability – Creatine Monohydrate is easily available as compared to other forms of creatine in the market. Almost every supplement company manufactures it and you can easily find it in any random supplement store and online stores as well. On the other hand, there are only a few manufacturers who manufacture creatine hydrochloride or liquid creatine. Due to limited demand, manufacturers and distributors have limited supply with them. In fact, this is one of the reasons that you find hydrochloride and other forms of creatine as a blend with various pre-workout brands. They are added to the ingredient profile to make the product sound better than others. © Getty Images 4. Cost-Effective – Creatine Monohydrate is one of the cheapest supplement available in the market. It's per serving cost is the lowest as compared to any other supplement as well as any other form of creatine. Since other forms of Creatine have less demand, their supply is less and hence come at a higher price than monohydrate.

  15. As soon as Ranveer Singh was roped in to play the main man behind India's first ever Cricket World Cup Win in 1983 - Kapil Dev, we had geared up for another solid sports biopic. Ranveer has had an amazing couple of years, with huge, successful movies like 'Padmaavat' and 'Gully Boy' under his belt, and it's only natural for us to be excited for his unique role in '1983'. He is known to completely throw himself into the process of 'becoming the character', something that sets him apart in Bollwood. For '1983', he needs to become the captain of the team, and he has been spending time with Kapil Dev for that very reason. Take a look. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on May 24, 2019 at 9:30pm PDT What we found noteworthy was the effortless style both these gentlemen were exuding, despite being in their most basic attires. While Ranveer wore a plain white T-shirt, Kapil Dev looked dapper in his usual fare - the plain white shirt. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on May 24, 2019 at 9:31pm PDT They prove that basic attires like summer staples that are extremely comfortable, are terribly underrated. One simply can never go wrong with them, irrespective of the occasion.

  16. Well, even with thousands of streaming websites these days, some of them manage to stand apart with just one show that the entire world is watching. I feel like so many people took Hotstar memberships especially for 'Game of Thrones' and well, that will cause some jealousy among other websites. But, this time, that jealousy just turned into a fun banter, giving us a rare and hilarious exchange between Hotstar and Netflix India. It all started with Netflix India's tweet about the checklist of a true relationship. We hang out every weekend. We eat all our meals together. Your parents know about us. Hate to break it to you, but we may be in a serious relationship. — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) May 23, 2019 Almost everyone is in a relationship with Netflix then, oops. Probably the longest and most stable relationship as well. While we're on the topic, someone decided to confess their infidelity. We need to talk. I have been cheating on you with @HotstarPremium ð — à¤®à¤°à¤¾à¤ à¥ à¤®à¤¾à¤£à¥à¤¸ (@marathimanu) May 23, 2019 Oh no, things are heating up. Hotstar came in to rub it in even more. Sorry, not sorry. :) — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 Then comes Netflix with a rebuttal, sounding very subtly sexual. We don't mind you experimenting with a hot star but they'd never make you stream like we do. — Netflix India (@NetflixIndia) May 23, 2019 Well, did Hotstar win this round? I can't tell. Insecure. . . Now streaming: https://t.co/Enbi7ENxst — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 There's more stuff happening. That's just for starters. pic.twitter.com/dSPXOMXXuR — Hotstar Premium (@HotstarPremium) May 23, 2019 Brands interacting with each other online is always funny and well, this exchange was just hilarious. Looks like people handling the Twitter accounts deserve a raise ASAP.
  17. Gaming laptops have gotten a lot better over time. Some of the laptops like the Alienware Area 51m are so powerful, that you can even replace your desktop with them and get stellar performance. But you don't always have to spend a fortune to get a decent gaming laptop. There are a ton of options out there and here are some good ones that are worth checking out: 1) MSI GL63 8RC © YouTube MSI has been making gaming laptops for a long time and they have a lot of options ranging from budget notebooks to really expensive devices. The MSI GL63 8RC, which we have here in this list, falls under the budget category. It's priced at Rs. 55,990, and it's a really good option for those who're looking to dip their toes in gaming. This particular variant of the MSI GL63 8RC is powered by Intel's Core i5 8th-gen CPU and it's coupled with 8GB of RAM. It sports a 15.6-inch FHD TN panel on the front, which is one of the best panels out there. This base variant of the laptop boasts a GTX 1050 Ti, which should be good enough to play even some of the modern AAA titles at medium to high settings. Price: Rs. 55,990 2) Acer Nitro 5 © YouTube Acer's Nitro series is very popular among budget PC gamers, as it offers a decent rig at a reasonable price. Much like the MSI GL series laptop, the Acer Nitro 5 is also powered by an 8th gen Intel Core i5 coupled with 8GB of RAM. It also boasts a GTX 1050Ti GPU, which is a great entry-level GPU. The Acer Nitro 5 also sports a 15.6-inch IPS anti-glare display, which is just about what you can expect from an entry-level laptop. If you can stretch your budget a little, then you can also check out the Acer Predator Helios 300. It's a little more expensive, but it's said to have better thermal management. Price: Rs. 55,990 3) ASUS TUF Ryzen 5 © YouTube ASUS, much like MSI, is known for making some really good gaming laptops. Their new TUF series of gaming laptops are just perfect for gamers who are on a budget. This particular variant which we have here is powered by an AMD Ryzen CPU. The ASUS TUF Ryzen 5, as the name suggests, is powered by a quad-core Ryzen 5-3550H CPU clocked at 3.7Ghz. It has 8GB of RAM and features a Radeon RX 560X GPU to power through your games. This is also the only laptop in the list that sports a 17.3-inch 60Hz IPS panel. So if you are looking for a bigger laptop, then the ASUS TUF powered by the Ryzen is worth checking out. It costs just a little over our set budget of Rs. 60,000. Price: Rs. 60,890 4) HP Pavilion 15 © HP This one, in particular, doesn't have a gaming DNA, at least when it comes to the looks, but it still packs enough power to run modern games at decent graphics settings. It sports a 15.6-inch FHD anti-glare display and it boasts a GTX 1050 GPU. It's an entry-level GPU with 4GB VRAM, but it can still handle most modern AAA titles at decent settings. It is powered by an 8th Gen Intel Core i5 processor and it packs 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD. The fact the HP Pavilion 15 Core doesn't have flashy RGB and an obnoxious design makes it a very compelling option for most people. Price: Rs. 59, 990
  18. There's always that one person who gets upset because they're losing during a board game, so they throw a tantrum, and then leave. If you can't figure out who that person is among your friends and family members, we've got some truly surprising news - it's probably you! Moving on from any existential crises the above paragraph may have triggered - here's why board games are important. And no, we aren't going to list any kumbaya-they-bring-you-closer-together reasons. Rather, they bring out your competitive streak- your hidden need for chaos, vengeance, and absolute victory. Okay, we may have been reminiscing about 'Game of Thrones' and gotten too carried away (but honestly, BRAN?). Anyway, board games are a great way to jog your mind a bit, be it through guesswork or intricate strategies. They're also a great way to get a break from your smartphones, relax with your loved ones, and do something fun without making too much of an effort. Sold on the idea yet? Well, to make your search for the perfect board game even easier, you need to check out our list of the best indoor board games. Check Out The Best Indoor Board Games In India 1. Monopoly © Amazon Monopoly - probably the first name that comes to one's mind when we think of indoor board games. It won't be wrong to state that Monopoly is, undoubtedly, one of the best indoor board games of all time, given it's enduring popularity - mainly a result of the intense chaos it causes. The updated version also has an electronic bank machine, making the classic board game all the more exciting in our jaded, technology-driven times. For those of you who are somehow not familiar with this iconic game, Monopoly deals with trading and businesses. You play the game with just one main goal - to get richer and own more property than your rivals. In retrospect, this was a rather dark game to be playing as an eight year old, but at least life's truths were revealed to us at an early age! MRP : Rs. 1812 Buy it here 2. Scrabble © Amazon Ever since we saw Indravadan and Maya playing Scrabble in that iconic episode of 'Sarabhai vs Sarabhai', most of us have played it in the hopes of using the word 'silky' ourselves. Then there's also the fact that being good at Scrabble is akin to being a wordsmith, rather like Shakespeare. After all, playing Scrabble makes one feel like they are roaming the halls of Oxford, studying English Literature, and carrying a tattered poetry collection in a leather satchel. Or maybe that's just us. Anyhow, Scrabble is one of the best board games of all time, and while word games on smartphones have become really popular, if you're looking for some good, classic fun, you should definitely invest in Scrabble. MRP : Rs. 557 Buy it here 3. Guess Who © Amazon Guess Who is one of the best board games for families, especially if you have a large family gathering with smaller children. It's easy to follow and actually quite fun, once you get the hang of it. The tenets are simple: your opponent chooses a character, you ask them strategic questions about their chosen character, and, based on their responses, win the game if you correctly guess their character's identity. This board game is especially good for young kids, as it helps them understand different facial characteristics and logical thinking. MRP: Rs. 399 Buy it here 4. Risk © Amazon As the name suggests, this board game is all about taking calculated risks and hoping they have a good payoff. Risk is all about strategic planning on the battlefield and conquering territory. The game has different elements so you can do secret missions, add a neutral army when there are only two players, or even play a shorter version of the game called 'capital risk'. These modes ensure that the game is flexible in nature, and you can adapt it to your own needs. As such, while the game is on the pricier side, it makes for a good investment. MRP: Rs. 1749 Buy it here 5. Scotland Yard © Amazon Do you guys remember the suspenseful Scotland Yard ads that used to play in the early noughts? Ah, those were the days! If you want to do some more reminiscing, you should definitely order this iconic board game and indulge in a game or two. One of the best indoor board games out there, we can attest to the fact that playing it is as fun as ever before. After all, trying to catch Mister X as he dodges you all around Scotland is pretty thrilling (and may even help you relive some Sherlock mysteries- albeit in a different way). Scotland Yard is perfect for a round or two with friends, and now that everyone is way older, you can also indulge in some Scottish whisky while playing it! MRP: Rs.455 Buy it here 6. Othello © Amazon If you want to try out a new variation of Chess, Othello is the game for you! The board game is named after Shakespeare's play and, rather like it, is relies on using strategic planning to ensure victory. Once you get the hang of the rules, you can participate in longer games that are more challenging and more fun. As such, Othello is definitely one of the best strategy board games of all time. MRP : Rs. 502 Buy it here 7. Carrom © Amazon The smell of powder, the sound of the striker gliding across the board, the need to have that one perfect shot - yes we're talking about the endless summer afternoons we've spent playing carrom. This board game from our childhood is still as intensely competitive as it was when we were younger, which is why it still makes for a great way of killing time on a lazy Sunday afternoon. MRP : Rs. 1.599 Buy it here 8. Game Of Life © Amazon Contrary to what its name may suggest, this is actually a game for kids. It helps teach them the values of life, and what tasks they need to undertake in order to have a good life. However, it's also a good game for adults, especially if you're a bit jaded and want to escape into a fantasy world where you can retire with a big fortune. This game is also available at reasonable prices online, so you should immediately purchase it if you have kids, or are feeling especially nostalgic these days. MRP: Rs. 551 Buy it here 9. The Poll © Amazon Election season has winded up and, irrespective of the results, you should definitely check out The Poll. This is a first of its kind game, based on the Indian elections - you take control of a political party, draft a manifesto, and try to win as many seats in the Lok Sabha elections as possible, through different strategies. The Poll is perfect for both adults and children alike, it helps make one familiar with how the government functions and is complex enough that you'll definitely have to put all that grey matter to use! As such, while The Poll is very new, it's also super innovative, which makes it one of the best indoor board games we've come across. MRP: Rs. 2000 Buy it here 10. Trivial Pursuit © Amazon The classic trivia game, Trivial Pursuit is perfect for family gatherings and for when you and your friends are trying to feel especially cultured. So brush up on your general knowledge and no, cheating isn't allowed! The six categories from which questions are asked are geography, entertainment, history, art and literature, science and nature, and sports and leisure. So put your thinking hats on and make sure that you are the first person to collect all six wedges to ensure your victory! MRP : Rs. 1149 Buy it here 11. Cluedo © Amazon One of the best indoor board games out there, Cluedo has probably led to Nancy Drew-inclinations in our younger selves. As such, it is perfect board game for younger kids, and can serve as a precursor to more complex murder mysteries as well. The updated game has a two player version and also features newer characters, ensuring that children will remain hooked onto the central mystery. MRP : Rs. 424 Buy it here 12. Catan © Amazon First and foremost, Catan makes sure you learn essential life skills! It follows settlers in a new territory, as they come across an island after a long voyage. Your aim is to gain land, and build colonies- by bartering, trading, and strategic planning. Expand strategically and you'll win the 10 points required to be a victor! As such, Catan is a worthy investment, though the price of the game may have you asking - “that much for a boarding game?” Well, this version is imported from The States and is of top notch quality. Moreover, Catan was named the Game of the Century and the Perfect Social Game, besides being anointed with other titles, so owning this will give you bragging rights! MRP: Rs. 2,698 Buy it here 13. Cards Against Humanity © Amazon Cards Against Humanity is advertised as a 'a party game for horrible people', and this description could not be more accurate.This is NOT a game for children, rather a party game for adults, so please keep that in mind. With that facet clear, you should definitely pull this game out during a house party, in order to have some wacky fun. This game is also perfect for impressing your crush with your amazing wit, or getting flustered when your combination flies over everyone's heads. As such, this is one of the best indoor board games, and while this particular deck is on the pricier side, it is the first edition and contains the original cards. MRP: Rs. 1,250 Buy it here 14. Jenga © Amazon One of the best family games, Jenga is perfect for both adults and children. The rules are simple- you need to ensure that the tower of blocks doesn't tumble, and you need to use increasingly creative means to do so. This is also a very fun game for a party, especially after a few drinks, as ensuring the tower doesn't fall (while you get all the more wobbly) is definitely a worthy challenge! MRP: Rs. 548 Buy it here
  19. Very recently, the German national women's football team produced an ad campaign ahead of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in which they spoke about how after winning one of the most prestigious European Championships, every woman of the squad received a tea set as medals for their glorious achievement. This was exactly three decades ago in 1989. Not a lot of news was made out of this because back then women were supposed to be making some good tea and the tea set would only add to their skills. Now, maybe in order to celebrate 30 years of sexual discrimination and the dominance of the male gender in sports, one of Spain's squash tournament's management team decided to repeat history, but only making it 10 times more interesting. “This is the 21st century, women aren't only meant to be making tea” they might have thought in their giant heads. “Let's reward them with *** toys instead!” Brilliant! Spain's Asturias Squash Championship 2019 saw some of the most competitive women squash players battle against each other on the squash court. They had trained night and day, putting in their blood, sweat and tears in order to achieve greatness in their game one day. For the 37-year-old Elisabet Sado Garriga, the day had finally arrived when she won the squash tournament a couple of days ago. Her reward? A gift bag with a waxing set to make her skin smooth, a foot care device to make those ugly feet pretty again and a branded “Pure Fantasy” vibrator because… needs. La imagen de los trofeos con los aberrantes regalos que ha denunciado @Ganamosconellas #ELTOPDELMACHISMO #sexismo #discriminación #Squash @revistalideras pic.twitter.com/P84iBsdSyx — Cristina Gallo (@crisgallo2) May 19, 2019 We have no idea as to why Garriga and the rest of the four place holders of the tournament got so offended that they registered a complaint against the tournament's management team that led to the Royal Spanish Squash Federation cancelling all tournaments for the year and even ordered the Asturian Institute of Women to investigate the matter. It is also believed that three of the helpless, sexist officials from the tournament were also asked to resign. Honestly, we do not even understand what all the fuss is about. After all, the club that hosted the tournament came out in public to say that whatever they did, it was not “done from a sexist standpoint.” If you ask us, rewarding an athlete with *** toys is always a great idea. Regardless of their gender, we are sure, they would be super excited to receive a token of appreciation that screams “you need to get laid!”. If anything, the sports tournament was too kind, thinking about the athletes' *** life like that. Do not see an issue with that...
  20. Keeping up with the latest accessory trends can be quite a task, and we're with you. Luckily, this season, the fashion trends have changed for the better and paying attention to details can now prove incredibly rewarding. Get ready to ditch your beaded wristbands and woven belts for these accessories that are all set to maximise your style. 1. Silver Cufflinks © Pexels Dear men, stop bringing out your age-old pocket squares to go with your suits. It's time to take a detour from 'boring' by adding a pair of silver cufflinks to crank up your attire. Understated, and thus subtly charming, these cufflinks will go with almost all colours of your shirts. To show you how confident I am about this tip, feel free to put the blame on me if it doesn't work. 2. Baseball Cap © Twitter Considering how quickly sporty styles have invaded most wardrobes, why not give baseball caps a chance to preen your look? These round brimmed version in muted tones with subtle branding might be just the push you need to go from 'meh' to 'dayum'. The trick here is to dovetail the trend with all your off-duty ensembles and fully commit to it. 3. Waist Bag © Trademe.co.nz You may not think much of your girlfriend's precious little sling bag, but it might just turn out to be a vital part of your vacay. An option that's inexpensive, a waist bag (not a fanny pack) is a good enough approach for you to set a new high. Also, the fact that it easily stocks your stuff as you head out doesn't hurt. The best part? It's not too beyond your comfort zone, and you no longer need your GF for it. 4. A Reversible Belt © Esquire A sartorial deviation from everyday wear belts to an option that doesn't wear down your budget, reversible belts have come a long way. It stands by virtue of its nature to suit any outfit. No more fretting about the shirts or tees you have in your wardrobe. Be it teal, burgundy or salmon pink, this belt type does a good deed for all. 5. Vintage Eyeglasses © Haircutinspiration Splurging on eyeglasses is not a decision made lightly, especially when, thanks to the digital world, there's a style or two for every face type. We've had our eye on vintage eyeglasses that are, besides being unapologetically fashionable, a fail-proof way to enhance your routine attire.
  21. Have you ever found yourself muttering "there has to be an easier way" when managing your community? If you have, it's likely that you are not the first person to think that. Invision Community has been refined over nearly two decades, and in that time we've received a lot of feedback from clients running very large and busy sites. We love a short cut, especially when it makes our clients lives easier. There's plenty of time-saving features throughout Invision Community, and here are five of the best. Saved Actions If you routinely perform the same actions to a topic, such as replying before closing it or moving the topic to a different forum, then saved actions will save you a lot of time. Let's look at a practical example. You have a forum where your members can suggest new features for your product. You might choose to move some of these suggestions to another forum to shortlist them for inclusion in a future version, or to discuss further. You also may like to reply thanking the member for their idea, but it's not feasible at this time. Here you would set up two saved actions, one that replies and moves the topic to a specific forum, and one that replies to the topic and closes it for further commenting. Your saved actions are accessible via the moderation menu You and your moderating team can select these saved actions quickly when reading a topic to perform multiple moderation steps in one go. RSS Feeds If your community regularly discusses topics that feature in the latest news, then you can quickly seed these discussions using the RSS feed import tool. Not only can you import almost any public RSS feed into your community, but you also have control over how these topics are displayed, to whom they are attributed to and how the link back to the source article looks. RSS feed import is an often overlooked but handy tool at starting productive discussions without the need to source and post them manually. iCal Feeds The iCal feed can be considered as the sister feature to the RSS Feed Import tool. It works in a very similar way in that it can accept almost any public iCal feed and import events into your community's calendar. This is especially useful if you maintain an event stream outside of the community, but wish to share those events with your members in a native way, or perhaps you already have a calendar product used by your organisation. Using the iCal feed tool to populate your community calendar with key dates relevant to your community can be achieved very quickly. Auto-moderation Moderating a busy community can be a time-consuming task. Trying to review new posts and topics to ensure they meet your community standards as they come in can be daunting. Fortunately, Invision Community has an ace up its sleeve. Auto-moderation allows you to use the power of your community to identify and remove content that does not meet your community standards. The administrator sets up a threshold so that when a specific number of reports for that content item is crossed, the content is hidden. Auto-moderation has a lot of options to configure which we covered in this blog article recently. Group promotion Ensuring your members feel valued and rewarded for their contributions is key to member retention and keeping engagement high. A simple way to reward long term regular contributors is to elevate their permissions. This can mean that they have access to otherwise hidden areas, or they get more allowances in terms of upload space and fewer restrictions. To do this manually would take a significant amount of time. Thankfully, Invision Community has a feature called Group Promotion. This tool allows the administrator to set up specific thresholds such as post count, or time since joining which then move the member into a new group when triggered. This all happens automatically. Just set it up and let it run! We spoke about Group Promotion recently, take a look here to learn more about this feature. How many of you are already using these features, and which ones did we miss off our list? I'd love to know.
  22. Yes, indeed, this happened. First things first, I have immense respect for the courage and the kind of boldness miss Sawant showcases when it comes to voicing some very strong opinions of hers. She gives two hoots about what one might think of her politically correct side because there isn't any and she speaks whatever is on her mind. So the much coveted Dadasaheb Phalke Foundation commended her with 'best item dancer' award in Bollywood but everyone is finding it hard to believe. We are not questioning her capacity to win an award but the title of the award itself. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rakhi Sawant (@rakhisawant2511) on May 11, 2019 at 11:52am PDT Rakhi has performed on over 100 dance songs in her career and feels happy for winning this recognition. However, people on the internet cannot believe that this happened. Isn't this the same award that #HinaKhan won few years back..#DadasahebPhalkeFilmFoundationAwards Kya baat hai #RakhiSawant ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ pic.twitter.com/XCpAHEBwYU — RiA (@RiaRevealed) May 12, 2019 Aisa kaun award deta hai bhai ? ððððð pic.twitter.com/zAbFcrBcOF — Chowkidar Samir (@imsam6876) May 12, 2019 One of the reporters even questioned her if she bought the award and she replied that “Not at all. Hamari itni aukaat nai hai award ko purchase karein. The jury and the federation realised that Rakhi Sawant hasn't received an award since 12 years so I am very thankful to them. It gives us motivation when an artist is honored with an award. It makes us work harder.” Now sure Rakhi deserves an award but don't you think an 'item dancer' award is the wrong representation of her worth?
  23. Everyone loves Keanu Reeves, the guy is just so amazing, and everyone loves him as John Wick ever since he took on the role in 2014 and avenged his dog. Now, the third movie in the franchise - 'John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum' - is almost here, but some people have already watched it and it's no surprise that people are loving the movie. Ever since the first promo picture came out - Keanu Reeves with Halle Berry in a desert with two dogs - people have been so excited for the movie. And, concerned about the dogs, of course. Welcome to the next chapter. #JohnWick3 pic.twitter.com/qtvXepVEvw — John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (@JohnWickMovie) December 19, 2018 People are also calling it the best movie in the franchise so far, and well, nothing builds the excitement more than that. #JohnWick3 is an absolute blast and the best film of the @JohnWickMovie franchise so far REVIEW: https://t.co/2fHZlkcn1Q pic.twitter.com/ZI8oocVzUn — UPROXX (@UPROXX) May 10, 2019 Some people disagree.

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 is pretty fucking badass. Maybe the most violent studio movie since HOSTEL: PART II. The Boban fight scene RULES & I don't even know if that was one of the top 3 sequences. Loved Mark Dacascos, but everyone is good -- Halle, McShane, Lance, Fishburne, Huston. — Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) May 10, 2019 Now, that's cool. Migos finally have their track “John Wick” featured on John Wick Chapter 3 pic.twitter.com/KxwHMsWSlT — MIGOS ð (@CultureTheAlbum) May 7, 2019 'Veheeery' good movie, apparently.

Within the first five minutes of CHAPTER 3, John Wick visits the Rose Main Reading Room of the Fifth Avenue New York Public Library, seven out of four stars, best film of the franchise — Jason Bailey (@jasondashbailey) May 10, 2019 Freaking awesome, guys!

I enjoyed John Wick 3 just fine--it's more John Wick--but I have to say I'm absolutely shocked that the RT rating is so overwhelmingly high. This movie DEFINITELY has more problems than a lot of critics are pointing out imo — Mike Rougeau (@RogueCheddar) May 11, 2019 That's good. John Wick 3 takes a page (and some actors) from The Raid in its relentless action and hard-hitting choreography. There's some plot wheel spinning that kept it from being perfect, but I just love this world and enjoy spending time in it. — Eric Vespe (@EricVespe) May 11, 2019 That's the tweet. #JohnWick Chapter 3 is the best movie ever. That's it, that's the whole tweet. — Brandon Katz (@Great_Katzby) May 10, 2019 Finally, please. I saw that they're handing out trading cards for Detective Pikachu. I hope for John Wick 3 they hand out guns. — Clipper Of Wings (@Exfatvirgin) May 11, 2019
  24. Google announced the Pixel 3a and 3a XL this week and if you are looking for an Android smartphone that delivers good performance, a phenomenal camera and not super expensive, it really ticks all the boxes right now. We've been using the phone for a while and simply fallen in love with the smartphone. Pixel smartphones tend to have exclusive features that give it a few advantages over its counterparts. The Pixel 3a delivers computational photography at an unmatched level and offers a pure Android experience just like the Pixel 3. Here are some of the reasons why we love the Pixel 3a: Great Cameras © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP The Pixel 3a, in our opinion, takes some of the most incredible shots with its single camera sensor. It still takes pictures today that can outmatch almost every smartphone available today, even flagship level smartphones. For the first time, Google has proved that great cameras are not exclusive to flagship smartphones. It comes with all the exclusive features you get on the Pixel 3 i.e. Night Sight, Super-Res Zoom, Top Shot, Photobooth, Playground and Google Lens built right into the camera app. Google also intruded a new time-lapse mode where you can set your frames to record at various intervals. This essentially will let you record a 20-minute video and condense the final video into 10 seconds.

Many people; especially audiophiles still prefer to use wired headphones due to better audio quality. Pixel 3a comes with a headphone jack which makes me want to use my 1MORE Quad driver earphones even more.

This will basically eliminate the need to use flash, as Google's algorithms spruce up the brightness, contrast and colour automatically. It takes multiple images and combines them together to give the best final picture that is social media ready.
