  1. Growing up as kids, we all had our obsession with some or the other thing, right? For some, say, it's video games, while for others it could have been something as small a thing as collecting stamps. Well, for a Michigan man dubbed Charlie, who's currently suing his parents, it's porn. Why is Charlie suing his parents? Well, it's because they got rid of his 'valuable' porn collection which he estimates was worth $29,000 (roughly over Rs. 20 Lakhs). © Reuters Yes, a 40-year old man has filed a lawsuit in federal court in Michigan against his parents who threw out 12 boxes filled with his porn videos and magazines. According to FOX 17, it all started when Charlie moved out of his parent's house in Grand Haven after going through a divorce. He says that when he moved out, his parents delivered his things to his new home in Indiana, except for the 12 boxes of pornographic films and magazines. Upon confronting, his parents agreed that they dumped the porn, which included titles such as 'Frisky Business' and 'Big Bad Grannys'. He was clearly pissed about his collection getting destroyed. He called the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office to file a police report, estimating the collection at $28,940. © Unsplash The prosecutors are said to have decided against filing charges against his parents. however, Charlie is still suing his parents for $86,822 in damages. Charlie says some of the videos are extremely valuable because they aren't being distributed anymore.
  2. Banning something like an app or a game isn't going to solve all the problems. In fact, when you're banning something, you're making it more popular. But can someone tell this to the governing bodies of this country? Because clearly, their approach is very different. After the whole PUBG fiasco, the Madurai bench of the Madras high court has issued an interim direction to the central government to prohibit downloading of Tik Tok app. © Reuters According to the court, the app contains pornographic and inappropriate content, and it's making children vulnerable to exposure to sexual predators. Ya, right! Tik Tok, for those of you who don't know, is a social video app owned by Beijing-based ByteDance Co. The app has over 1 billion downloads worldwide and was the fourth most-downloaded non-game app in 2018. So clearly, there are a ton of people using it, and in fact loving it. The platform is dominated by memes and videos of lip-sync, dance, and more. The petition to ban the app was filed by a Madurai-based senior lawyer-cum-social activist Muthu Kumar, citing pornography, cultural degradation, child abuse, suicides, etc. We haven't heard from the central government just yet though. Additionally, a division bench of Justice N Kirubakaran and Justice S S Sundar also issued directions to prohibit media from telecasting videos made with Tik Tok. A Tik Tok spokesperson who spoke to Reuters said the company is committed to abiding by local news and was awaiting a copy of the court's order to take appropriate action. © YouTube Again, as we mentioned earlier, banning an app or a game isn't an optimum solution. It's us, the users, who need to take up responsibility and be aware of the decisions we make regarding the content we choose to consume online.
  3. Arguably one of the greatest footballers of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo has arguably won everything there is in the world of football. From winning a record five Ballon d'Ors to winning the Euro title with Portugal, Ronaldo continues to prove that he's a cut above the rest. But, while his exploits on the football pitch has earned him the status of a demigod, his antics off it has also made him a subject of immense criticism. From his tax fraud case in Spain to the recent rape allegations from a woman in the United States, the Portuguese legacy in the sport has surely been dented. While the rape allegations levelled against him are still pending an inquiry, Ronaldo has now settled the long-standing tax evasion case. The 33-year-old was accused of avoiding paying taxes in Spain between 2010 and 2014, during his stint with Real Madrid. The case against him in the Spanish court was centred around lucrative image rights deals. The prosecutors had claimed that the proceeds were funnelled through low-tax companies in foreign nations to evade taxes. AP The allegations had first emerged in 2017 when the prosecutors had claimed that it was a "voluntary and conscious breach of his fiscal obligations in Spain". But, Ronaldo's lawyers clarified that it was all down to a misunderstanding over what was and was not required under Spanish law, and denied any deliberate attempt by the football superstar to evade tax. In a bid to settle the case, a deal was struck in June last year which was supposed to be agreed with Spain's tax authorities. On 22nd January, Ronaldo was asked to appear in the Spanish court to resolve the case. In a court appearance that lasted for a few minutes, Ronaldo accepted the deal offered by prosecutors before walking out with his wife Georgina Rodriguez, smiling and giving a thumbs-up while signing autographs. AP According to the deal, Ronaldo will pay a fine of 16.6 million pounds. But, more importantly, Ronaldo, who was earlier facing some prison time, will no longer serve the pre-decided 23-month jail sentence. In Spain, convicts do not usually do time for sentences under two years. And, since, the nature of Ronaldo's offence was non-violent, the Juventus forward seems to have escaped the jail sentence, serving it on probation instead. So, for a man who has been listed by Forbes as the third-wealthiest athlete in the world, with estimated earnings of 108 million dollars a year, the 16.6-million-pound fine seems like peanuts for Ronaldo. Thus, there was no surprise to see football fans across the globe slamming Ronaldo and Spanish tax authorities for the same. The rich get way with as they pay large fines. He should have gone in jail as poorer people would have done. — dave hitchin (@HitchinDave) January 22, 2019 why isn't he made to pay back what he owed?! — Jordy (@garyetchells) January 22, 2019 So? Rapists are free and happy, and I don't see the moralists talking about it. — Bel Inojosa (@BelCiel) January 22, 2019 You'd think they were going to a Royal wedding by that photo. — Robson (@ROBSON_THE_RED) January 22, 2019 Proof that money can buy happiness — ThirdEye (@ItsGillaGilla) January 22, 2019 Never seen anyone happier to leave a court room. ð³ pic.twitter.com/uAWTVUo7TW — s u l e i m a n ð (@SuleimanAFC) January 22, 2019 Amazing how you can buy anything with money... — steve phillips (@superbladestee) January 22, 2019 I'd be happy too , cuz that's pocket change for him... he will make it back in a few months from his sponsors , and I wouldn't be surprised if Juventus actually pays for it . That's actually possible — Tendai91 (@Tendai9111) January 22, 2019 Ahhh, what a world we live in where literally anyone that wasn't rich would have been sentenced to prison if they had done this. — James Watson (@JamesWa46455119) January 22, 2019 This would be only a tiny amount of money to him — Janette Hall86 (@JanetteHall) January 22, 2019 Easy when you're rich — krishan (@22kchauhan) January 22, 2019 meh, 2 months salary for him. — ( '| ) (@pedroleitao) January 22, 2019
  4. Indian students, especially ones in college are familiar with the term 'ban'. From mobile ban to fun ban, the list goes on forever. PUBG or 'PlayerUnknown's Battleground' is a widely popular game that has changed the way we play games on our mobile phones. When you club these two trends, you get a PUBG Ban! An image of what seems to be a legal notice has been doing the rounds on Facebook stating that PUBG Mobile has been banned in India. It mentions that the game is "creating a lot of nuisance and irrespective activities and many students spoiling their own lives". © In wider circulation Even though the circumstances would make us believe the PUBG Mobile ban notice is for real, looking at the details makes us question the authenticity of the letter. While this may sound legitimate, it's completely fake. Firstly, there is no authority called "High Court of Maharashtra". Secondly, a judge named K. Srinivasulu doesn't exist according to Gadgets360. Incorporating ellipsis (three dots) is another instance of proving that it is not a professional document. © PUBG Corp From the first impression of the circular, it becomes pretty evident that the circular is not an official one. There are a lot of grammatical mistakes, and even the format does not match with the previous official circulars of the Indian judiciary system. For now, you have nothing to worry about. PUBG is running perfectly fine, available for download and nobody can enforce you to stop playing it right now. The Vikendi map is available as well, as it's always fun to play with snow, especially around the Christmas. © Reddit Though, other smaller organisations have taken a hard stance against playing PUBG. Students of Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) aren't allowed to play the game on campus or in the hostel because the warden issued a particularly threatening circular. On the sidelines, PUBG Corp has shut down around 30,000 accounts accused of using Radar Hack cheat codes on their battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battleground or PUBG on Thursday. The Radar Hack is a cheat that allows players to see the positions of all other players on the map, giving them an instant advantage.

  6. She is known for owning the tennis court when she is on it and she is known for her trenchant responses off it as well. Her name is Sania Mirza, and she needs no introduction. Yet, people often tend to overlook all her achievements in the hopes of pulling down a woman who has a mind of her own, a tongue to voice her opinions, and an innate sense of pride - that simply makes her brilliant! The former World No. 1 in the women's doubles rankings, Sania was featured as one of the '50 Heroes of Asia' by Time and also made it to The Economic Times' list of, '33 Women Who Made India Proud'. She was also a part of Time magazine's 2016 list of the '100 Most Influential People In The World' and there seems to be so much more besides all that to remember her by. © Reuters Apart from the memorable matches and victories on the tennis court, she is also known for being a badass, sassy woman off the court, when it comes to crossing her just for the sake of it. We list down 5 such memorable instances that prove the star player, who recently became a mother,is a real badass you don't want to mess with. 1. Daring The Fatwas One T-Shirt At A Time In 2005, when Sania was just 18-year-old, a Muslim cleric named Haseeb-ul-Hasan Siddiqui from Kolkata issued a fatwa against her for wearing t-shirts and skirts to her matches. He insisted that she covered up for the matches or face consequences. But Sania wasn't someone who could be held back by threats, and this is what she did instead. She started sporting slogan tees that read, "I'm cute? No shit..." "You can either agree with me - or be wrong," and "Well behaved girls rarely make history"! © Reuters This is what she had to say to people who were more concerned about her dress than her game: "How I dress is a very personal thing," she once said. "As long as I am winning, people shouldn't care whether my skirt is six inches long or six feet long. It is scary that every time I wear a T-shirt, it becomes a talking point for the next three days." 2. Setting The Record Straight With Rajdeep Sardesai During an interview with prominent journo Rajdeep Sardesai about her then-recently launched autobiography 'Ace Against Odds', the TV presenter asked Sania when she planned on “settling down”, and her response to that is one for the books. © Reuters Here's exactly how the rest of the conversation followed: Rajdeep: Amidst all the celebrityhood, when is Sania going to settle down? Is it going to be in Dubai? Is it going to be in any other country? What about motherhood, building a family? I don't see all that in the book, it seems like you don't want to retire just yet to settle down. Sania: You don't think I'm settled? Rajdeep: You don't talk about retirement, about raising a family, about motherhood, what's life beyond tennis is going to be. Sania: You sound disappointed that I'm not choosing motherhood over being number one in the world at this point of time. But I'll answer your question anyway, that's the question I face all the time as a woman, that all women have to face; the first is marriage and then it's motherhood. Unfortunately, that's when we're settled, and no matter how many Wimbledons we win or number ones in the world we become, we don't become settled. But eventually, it will happen, not right now. And when it does happen I'll be the first one to tell everybody when I plan to do that. Rajdeep: I must apologise, I framed that question very badly. I promise you, you're right, I would never ask this question to a male athlete. Sania: I'm so glad, you're the first journalist to apologise to me on national television. 3. Politely Calling Out Bullies In The Sports Industry When Sania completed 80 weeks as the World No. 1 in women's double, she shared her happiness about the same via a tweet - Today I complete 80 consecutive weeks as the number 1 player in d worldðits been an amazing journey and just inspires me to work harder @WTA pic.twitter.com/BsHoeU0YAT — Sania Mirza (@MirzaSania) October 18, 2016 But then former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar tried to correct her by reminding her that she was “No. 1 doubles player”. Sania simply replied with a short tweet saying, "Since I don't play singles anymore isn't it obvious/common sense? My bad, common sense is not that common after all... :)" Attagirl! What a fitting reply. 4. When She Trounced The Bullies Who Called Her 'Pakistan's Daughter-In-Law' Almost the entire nation came together to bash the sports star left, right and centre, when she announced her plans to marry Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. But no matter what the people had to say, she followed her heart and went ahead with her decision. © Reuters However, some people in India still couldn't get over it even after so many years, because when she was named as the brand ambassador for the state of Telangana, she was looked down upon and considered to be a lesser Indian. People even called her “Pakistan's daughter-in-law” to dissuade the Telangana CM from his decision. This particular incident hurt Sania bad enough to cause a meltdown on the public forum. But she wasn't to be silenced, and here's how she gave it back to the bullies on Live TV: "I've lived in Hyderabad all my life, my forefathers have lived in Hyderabad all their lives. They've done way too much for their state and this country, I've done way too much for this state and the country to even dignify that statement [with a response]. I'm honoured and humbled that the honourable CM has thought me to be worthy of being the brand ambassador of this state." 5. When She Called Out India's Inefficacy To Protect Its Women Sania became the first South Asian woman to be appointed as a Goodwill Ambassador in the history of United Nations, and when she had the chance to make herself be heard to a bigger and diverse audience, she called out India's failure to protect women's rights. Instead, a single statement from that interview was sensationalised. And here's how Sania handled all the backlash and came out a winner by standing by her statement. © Instagram In a series of tweets, she made her stand clear - "Just to make a couple of things very clear: I did NOT say that there is no respect for women in India. I am the ambassador for the region and I would never be where I am today if the country hadn't given me all this love," "But I am fortunate, very fortunate. There are millions of women who are less fortunate in this part of the world and have been victims of abuse, physical or sexual, and have not been allowed to follow their dreams because they were a girl! So whether you guys like to accept it or not, this is the truth. "And yes, I do believe that if I was a man I would not have faced certain unnecessary controversies that I did! And some language that is being used here on Twitter doesn't seem too respectful to me! So some of you need to clean your tongue first before wanting to claim that you respect women and people in general..." "...I have made myself very clear, and will stand for what I believe in and address the issue of gender inequality." © Instagram She isn't a woman to be meddled with, because she always knows where she is coming from. She speaks her mind and calls a spade a spade, whether you like it or not. She has inspired millions of girls to chase their dreams, wish for crazy, successful futures and live their lives on their own terms. More power to you Sania, and happy birthday!
  7. Every year, a solitary bylane in Delhi's South Moti Bagh lights up with the flicker of several diyas and candles that dot the many flat surfaces along the lonely path. Nobody can be seen in the immediate vicinity, nobody you can credit for the cheerful act, and yet the glowing street manages to fill your heart with the happy spirit of the season. Diwali is here, and we have the entire city to show for it! Diwali - the festival of lights, also happens to be India's most favourite festival. The entire nation comes together to celebrate the occasion as one; regardless of the boundaries, languages and cultures that might separate them on other days. © Flickr For most of us, Diwali evokes glad memories of colourful Chinese lights gracing every inch of the verandah at home, wearing sparkling new clothes, gobbling up a hell lot of mithai and namkeen, and of course, the deafening sounds of crackers and glittering sparklers that filled our silly, childish heart with endless mirth. However, this year, the aforementioned tradition, and the nostalgia it welcomes year after year, might undergo a major change. After Supreme Court's order pushing for a 'green' Diwali, only those fireworks falling under permissible noise and smoke levels shall be allowed for use this Diwali, and that too only between 8 - 10 pm. © wikipedia SC's verdict comes as a welcome news for Delhiites, who are literally struggling to breathe post-Dussehra celebrations. With the city's Air Quality Index (AQI) recorded at season's highest at 337 on Saturday as per CPCB records, it would do all of us great good to break away from our age-old traditions and conform to the ban on crackers. Agreed that traditions are fun and emblematic of our cultural heritage, but ancient traditions that don't leave room to accommodate change, and move forward with the changing times only prohibits socio-cultural growth. To establish a more sensitive and progressive society, we need to break away from the shackles of ancient, unjust and harmful traditions. Traditions that not only threaten to squash our fundamental rights, but also prevent a holistic development of the society and its people. © AP The verdict on firecrackers is just one of the latest moves that challenge such regressive traditions. This year, the SC has shown us time and again that we must stand up against laws and traditions that are harmful to society. Be it Section 377 or the Sabarimala Temple verdict, we have seen how moves have been made to discard laws that are harmful to the society. Yet, with each of these decisions that came our way, a certain segment of men in our society stood up against them. They somehow keep overlooking the entitlement they enjoy in our society merely by the virtue of being men. Men are almost never questioned or judged, and the concept of victim-blaming in the case of men is simply non-existent. Remember Mulayam Singh Yadav's outrageous comment in 2015, when he said “boys will be boys...they make mistakes”, expressing his dissent against capital punishment for rape? That's really an honest reflection of the prevailing mindset of the Indian society. © Twitter More recently, with the #MeToo movement's furore gripping the nation, and with the endless accounts of harassment and assault pouring in from women across the country, men have yet again failed to play their part in stepping up, and making a positive impact to the situation by wielding their authority and power to aid women's concerns and voices be heard, and taken seriously. A Facebook user by the name of Bhandari Pb was seen commenting, “A dog at my frnds place licked my toe 5years back...I felt so uncomfortable...Me Too” on a #MeToo post listing the names of the accused. Another user commented on MJ Akbar's resignation with this, “justice has been without court order ... who served justice? feminist court of India?”. Such reactions only go to show how men have taken to trivialising the matter, or defacing the movement by giving it a political colour. In this entire man-made ruckus, what they seemed to have forgotten is that women, who are constantly fighting gazillion other personal and professional battles within the society, have finally decided to break out of the tradition of 'silence'. The tradition that dictates them to stay mum about injustice and assault, who glorify the notion of playing victim instead of rising as a survivor. © Instagram It's time men realised that the onus lies with them to bring about a change and leave behind such practices that harm us, and stubs our growth. Yet, perhaps, there is still hope for us because of men such as retired officer Mr. Datta, who believes that “the #MeToo movement might usher a safer future for my granddaughter." Maybe now men will also learn to think twice before making every single move like the women of our country have done of centuries at a stretch. Or if nothing else they might learn to mind their own business at the very least. The young generation isn't lagging behind either. The unrest around the Sabarimala verdict unsettled CAT aspirant Uday, who believes that, “when the women in our society are expected to further our religious and cultural traditions on all other occasions, when they are the ones following every religious tradition and ritual to the T in our society, then why should they be stopped from seeking God Ayyappan's blessings? They deserve it just as much as anybody else. Young or old.” © BCCL Will more please rise and dare to break the traditions, or at least come out in support of the ones who are fighting to bring about a change? Let's remember the efforts of Raja Ram Mohan Roy who stood up against Sati, the tireless efforts of Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar who fought to legalise widow remarriage, and hail the terrific move of Savitri Bai Phule who went against an orthodox society to open a school for women and untouchables. It's about time the men of our generation stood up to similar challenges in our society today, just like they did.

  9. Mark this date guys, because this date will go down as one of the historic moments in the golden pages of the nation's history. In a landmark verdict, same *** relationship has been decriminalized by the Supreme Court. This judgement was passed by a five-judge panel, headed by Chief Justice of India, Dipak Mishra. The Supreme Court furthered that the law violated the fundamental rights of citizens. © Instagram The court, while delivering the verdict, furthered that Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code was being used to harass the members of the LGBTQ community and that they are liable to the same fundamental rights as other citizens. For those who aren't aware about it, Section 377 criminalised same *** relationship deeming it "against the order of nature", a law that dates back to the British colonial rule. © Instagram This is a huge victory for the nation and people are visibly overjoyed and rejoicing this verdict. From Bollywood fraternity to prominent personalities, social media is flooded with congratulatory messages for the LGBTQ community and this judgment that will shape a better future for the nation in the following years to come. © Instagram Karan Johar called it a historical judgement and said that the country got its oxygen back.

  10. The life of an NBA athlete is a glamourous one, to say the least. But, to say that their stardom is short-lived and vanishes after they retire, is plain wrong. It's not like you won't recognize LeBron James after he retires, right? But, when an athlete chooses to start a business instead of just living off past fame and glory, it is commendable. Here are four NBA stars who ruled the basketball court for years and then went on to become successful entrepreneurs as well as the ones who rule the court today and are already successful entrepreneurs: 1. Michael Jordan When Michael is on a list, you have no option but to start with him. One of the greatest NBA players in history, Jordan made quite a name for himself off the court as well. He was among the first athletes to become a billionaire. © Getty Images Currently, he is the majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets with an investment worth more than $400 million today. And, we all know about Air Jordans. No points for guessing which NBA athlete was involved there. 2. Earvin “Magic” Johnson If your name has 'magic' in it, you better use it to create a multimillion dollar enterprise. That's exactly what Magic Johnson Enterprises is. An investment company that has owned stakes in multiple well-known businesses over the years including Starbucks, T.G.I. Friday's, Burger King, Sodexo and even the LA Lakers. © Getty Images Through his company, Magic is rumoured to serve more than 32 million customers on a yearly basis. His company is worth over $1 billion, allegedly. There's no way he got so far without a little “Magic”! 3. LeBron James King James needs no introduction. If you've followed the NBA at any point in the last few years, you know who he is. LeBron is currently worth over $400 million and counting. © Getty Images He owns an investment company, LRMR Marketing, which he set up with the help of Warren Buffett. Let's just say he chose the right man to go to for help. He even has a media company called Uninterrupted with over 200,000 subscribers on YouTube already. 4. Shaquille O'Neal There's only one NBA athlete who can boast about investing in Google before it went public - Big Shaq. He was an aggressive force on the court, but off the court, he made sure every single decision was calm and calculated. © Getty Images He also owns a stake in Muscle Milk and Vitamin Water. He never invests in a company without conducting the necessary research first. Let's just say, he lets nothing slip by!
