  1. People in Delhi NCR region are living in the worst times currently as the entire city feels like a gas chamber. It has become difficult to breathe and to be outdoors without a mask isn't even an option anymore. However, the smoke and pollution have also crept into our houses, even the underground metro stations. People are gasping for fresh air in and around the city, and Air Quality Index (AQI) has touched 999 in some parts of Delhi and NCR. The air quality is deteriorating at an alarming rate. Even more than 120 hours post Diwali, the air quality is getting worse minute by minute instead of improving. AQI India, recently, shared the 24-hour time lapse video on November 3 which looks totally frightening. The video shows the visibility getting drastically reduced in comparison to the night of November 2. It seems like winter is here and the city is being covered in fog but in reality, it is only thick blanket of smog. Last 24 hours in Delhi were the worst in terms of air quality for this year. Here is a time lapse of Delhi (03 Nov 2019). @rahulkanwal @PrakashJavdekar @sunitanar @CPCB_OFFICIAL @ndtv @ABPNews @htTweets @IndianExpress @HuffPostIndia @guardianeco @CNNnews18 @CNN @TimesNow @NatGeo pic.twitter.com/gbdEnc0Inm — Rohit Bansal (@rohitbsl) November 3, 2019 Delhi government has taken several measures in a bid to curb the effects of rising pollution level and as a result, construction activities in Delhi NCR region has been stalled till November 5. Even the odd even scheme has come into effect from today till November 15. However, there seems to be little to no improvement in the worsening air quality. AQI had also shared a time lapse of the day after Diwali, but it wasn't as bad as the one shared yesterday. Check it out. A timelapse of Diwali day and evening, showing a smog layer covering the city already during the day. As the light show at Connaught Place starts, others are burning fireworks and creating PM2.5 levels higher than 1500.#airpollution #diwali #delhi pic.twitter.com/Ki5Uyq5aKH — AQI India (@AQI_India) October 30, 2019 Unfortunately, we are all breathing poison and the weather department has predicted rain in the coming days, which could provide some respite. Till then, people should stay indoors or shouldn't step outside without a mask. View the full article
  2. It's been a hot minute since the entire internet was talking about Game of Thrones, but well, the show has come back with a bang. For months, the only thing people could talk about was how the eighth season ruined the entire show but there's a chance for GOT to redeem itself. Kinda. So, it has been announced that a prequel called House of the Dragon is coming to HBO soon and I won't even be exaggerating when I say that fans have gone crazy with the excitement of it. #HouseOfTheDragon, a #GameofThrones prequel is coming to @HBO. The series is co-created by @GRRMSpeaking and Ryan Condal. Miguel Sapochnik will partner with Condal as showrunner and will direct the pilot and additional episodes. Condal will be writing the series. pic.twitter.com/9ttMzElgXm — Game of Thrones (@GameOfThrones) October 29, 2019 Even though not a lot of information has been revealed about the project, it's enough for now. Here's what we do know - as the name suggests, it will revolve around the House Targaryen. The 10-episode series will be set about 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. It will be based on George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones spinoff book Fire & Blood. While the book focuses on generations of the Targaryen dynasty, we don't know if the series will cover everything or focus on a few particular rulers. Reportedly, it will show Aegon I arriving in Westeros and unifying six of its seven kingdoms with his sister-wives Visenya and Rhaenys. So basically, we will probably see the origin of all the iconic things from Game of Thrones. Finally, there's good news and there's bad news. Bad news is that we don't have a premiere date, not even a hint of when House of the Dragon will finally come out, but on the other hand, it seems like David Benioff and D. B. Weiss - the show creators who were responsible for making GOT go from the most loved show to having the most hated ending - seem to be not involved at all. Unrelated, but there's also a little story of karma that happened recently. Remember how D&D rushed the last season of GOT so they could start working on Star Wars? They are no longer working on Star Wars as well. On to the excited fans, people are so here for the rise of the Targnation. pic.twitter.com/QrwdVljdrV — ¡Oh my Emilia Clarke!

  3. So far we have no idea on what the PlayStation 5 will look like, but it has been confirmed that the toilet seat-like design doing the rounds of the Internet is indeed the design of the devkit. Devkits are prototypes of an upcoming console that house all the hardware developers need to know about, to develop games for the new console. In the past, production versions of the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 or any other console for that matter haven't ended up looking like their devkits. © Youtube_ZoneofTech Up until now, we've mostly seen renders of the PlayStation 5's devkit. However, an actual photo of the devkit was leaked on Twitter and YouTube. It looks almost identical to the renders we've seen so far, but that's not indicative of the actual product gamers will be able to buy next year in any way. We all know what the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation looked like but these devkits tell a different story. While they look bulky just like the PS5 devkit, the final product borrowed only a few design aspects from the devkit. Here are some images below that you can see for yourself and identify the design aspects that were borrowed for the final product. PlayStation 3 © Reddit PlayStation 4 © Reddit Similarly, the PS5 may not look exactly like the leaked devkit, but we do think that the final design may incorporate the “V” design in some way. It may be used to signify that this is the fifth PlayStation console as “V” also stands for five in the roman numerical. Interestingly, the upcoming PS5 will be compatible with older-gen games and won't come cheap. © LetsGoDigital We aren't sure when Sony will reveal the PlayStation 5 to the public as the company did not attend E3 this year. The PlayStation 4 was revealed at E3 2013, a few months before its launch and we could see something similar this year. Sony may show us the new console either on E3 next year or at their own “State of Play” event a few months before the launch of the console.
  4. It's summer and Peter Parker has decided to go on vacation, telling us that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is definitely far from being over. The social media embargo on reviews of 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' has been lifted and the feedback is as bright as a positive ray of light. Disney is definitely confident about what about the film director, Jon Watts has made and the reactions talk about its humour, action and a few major twists. Although the movie is set to release on July 5, the press screenings have started and we can't wait to catch the new Spidey flick. © Sony Pictures Releasing Marvel and Disney have always made it a point to lift embargos on movies way before their release to get a positive word of mouth in advance and this time was no different. According to the trailer, this one has Peter Parker aka Spider-Man taking a vacation in Europe with his classmates. However, he runs into Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) or rather he's hunted down by Fury and the mysterious Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) aka Quentin Beck to help defeat some apolyptic 'Elemental' monster! © Sony Pictures Releasing Some are calling the film a perfect 'Avengers: Endgame' epilogue where the MCU goes on an emotionally fulfilling ride, while some say it's the best Spidey movie yet. Let's see what the critics have to say about 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' FAR FROM HOME has dethroned Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2 & is now favorite Spider-Man film. What's insane is that I can't even tell u why I'm so in love with this film because it would be a spoiler. Gyllenhaal is incredible. Holland re-confirms as the best Spidey to date. Amazing. pic.twitter.com/pbynxYIEyQ — Kevin McCarthy (@KevinMcCarthyTV) 19 June 2019 I didn't expect to laugh so hard at a movie that deals with the emotional and global fallout of Avengers: Endgame. I really, really enjoyed #SpiderManFarFromeHome (liked it a smidge more than Homecoming), and thought it absolutely succeeded when it dealt with human-scale stories. pic.twitter.com/Cy985w2NeV — Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) 19 June 2019 I had a big dumb smile on my face through all of #SpiderManFarFromHome. It makes for a lovely companion piece to Endgame, but it's also a top-notch Peter story. Oh, and Jake Gyllenhaal is clearly having the time of his LIFE. — Devan Coggan (@devancoggan) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome isn't quite as wonderful as Homecoming, but it's a really strong, endearing sequel that delivers some excellent moments in its second half in particular. It commendably furthers Peter's story while laying groundwork for what's next in a notably deft way. — Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) 19 June 2019 I saw Spider-Man: Far From Home last night - it's pretty much the perfect Avengers: Endgame epilogue - reminding us that the MCU goes on in a joyous, emotionally fulfilling ride. #SpiderManFarFromHome — Sean Keane (@SpectacularSean) 19 June 2019 #SpiderMan #FarFromHome is an absolute home run. It's SO much fun. It's huge in itself and for the future of the MCU in the most surprising ways. Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, just a lethal, awesome combo!! I cannot wait to see this movie again. And again. pic.twitter.com/0hYJvKkdjN — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) 19 June 2019 I can't stress this enough: stay all the way through the credits for #FarFromHome!!! There's a couple of brilliant sequences waiting for you! Dodge #SpiderMan spoilers as best you can!! pic.twitter.com/vhiJcMwzF1 — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) 19 June 2019 Absolutely loved SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME. I'm a huge Mysterio fan and Gyllenhaal nails him. Also the movie is very clever (and funny) how it handles the fallout post ENDGAME in explaining how this world works now. — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) 19 June 2019 Didn't LOVE #SpiderManFarFromHome as much as Homecoming but it's still a rad take on bearing the weight of great expectations and a fun ode to teen romance. Tom Holland continues to be amazing, Zendaya's MJ is just as cool as Shuri and Jake G's an inspired choice for Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/nnu7BPjcFO — Brian Truitt (@briantruitt) 19 June 2019 #FarFromHome non spoiler thoughts: most comic booky movie marvel has put out. Second and third acts are outstanding. The two post credit sequences are going to stick in my brain for a L O N G time. I cannot wait to see this movie at least three more times. — Preeti Chhibber (@runwithskizzers) 19 June 2019 #Spiderman #FarFromHome is SUCH a good movie! Jake Gyllenhaal suits up & completely embraces his role in its entirety & he's clearly having a blast. This is such a refreshing film after the heaviness of #EndGame. The post-credit scenes are a MUST WATCH & will blow your dang mind! pic.twitter.com/wcTh9iHaYq — Maude Garrett (@maudegarrett) 19 June 2019 Spider-Man: Far from Home is an extremely fun, cleverly executed, and frequently hilarious culmination of the MCU's wall-crawler's journey so far. Some very sweet moments, sly commentary and deft action set-pieces throughout #SpiderManFarFromHome pic.twitter.com/5sAmxh4E3p — Jim Vejvoda (@JimVejvoda) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome had the difficult task of following two epic Avengers movies AND Spider-Verse and succeeds by telling a smaller, classical story about Peter Parker caught between what he wants and what responsibility demands. Pure cat(spider)nip for Spidey fans like me. pic.twitter.com/G2a4p6YhAr — Matt Singer (@mattsinger) 19 June 2019 I love that #SpiderManFarFromHome is all sleight-of-hand. It begs to be seen multiple times. pic.twitter.com/nwIX24L8WH — Jason Guerrasio (@JasonGuerrasio) 19 June 2019 absolutely loved #SpiderManFarFromHome. Captures the spirit of the comics and mixes in some amazing movie magic. The second the film ended I wanted to watch it again. #JakeGyllenhaal is fantastic as Mysterio. pic.twitter.com/4ZYaS0L8mf — Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome is the coda we needed after Endgame, a glimpse of how the world looks now that the dust has settled. Could maybe have gone a bit harder on P's emotional arc, but bursting with warmth and humor and awkward teen romance. ð Also: Jake G = perfect casting. — Angie J. Han (@ajhan) 19 June 2019 #SpiderManFarFromHome: B-/C+. If you loved the teen-centric stuff in Homecoming, there's more where that came from. Some of the comedy falls flat, but this film has A LOT going on – ultimately beneficial because it mostly distracts from stuff that doesn't land quite as well. pic.twitter.com/1wVMyT5bv9 — Ben Pearson (@benpears) 19 June 2019 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is a refreshingly light-hearted adventure after the somber intensity of Avengers: Endgame, delivering exactly the kind of wise-cracking antics we've come to expect from Tom Holland's Peter Parker. - @jacobkleinman pic.twitter.com/EWik8F9VUr — Inverse (@inversedotcom) 19 June 2019 A lot of critics praised the film, saying it didn't disappoint them at all, as you can see above from the reactions. They all concurred that MCU has the most amazing ways to surprise their fans. There were also praises for how the film carved it's story post 'Avengers: Endgame' ending, and how the characters react to Iron Man aka Tony Starks death. There's a lot of mention of that towards the film's climactic action scene and several critics have mentioned that one may want to watch it over and over, just for that remarkable twist, towards the end. The film will conclude the third phase of the MCU, post which new characters will be introduced into the series, in all probability. So, get your Spidey game on and get ready to witness an excellent movie (as told by the critics) on July 5.
  5. We all knew Tony Stark would be a big part of 'Spiderman: Far From Home' but were we prepared for that? I don't know. Every new trailer or any footage since the release of 'Avengers: Endgame' has talked about Tony - and the fact that he's dead now - and well, now we're learning more and more about him still. In the Iron Man movies, we've seen Tony spending a lot of time in his lab working on his suits and well, 'Spiderman: FFH' shows his 'ward' Peter Parker working in his lab in one of Tony's planes. Remember Peter wearing Tony's glasses in the second official trailer? Now, we get to see what they actually do. Here's a compilation of a bunch of international teasers and trailers that have come out till now. So many new scenes, yet we still don't what the f**k is happening with the multiverse. That will be exciting to watch in just a few months. Actually, here's another set of teasers. Along with all of that, there's apparently a 'leaked' trailer as well which has a bunch of new footage along with everything we've seen before. BROTHERS AND SISTERS I PRESENT TO YOU pic.twitter.com/nC7iNu18i7 — *â§ï½¥ï¾* ð¤ðð²ð¥ð *ï½¥ï¾â§* (@suitedspidey) June 1, 2019 Yes, it's not exactly leaked since it looks like it probably played at some theatre before a movie. ('Endgame', I'm guessing) 'Spiderman: Far From Home' is almost here but it still seems so far away, and we really are dealing with some serious MCU withdrawal right now. July 2nd cannot come fast enough.
  6. Virat Kohli is without doubt once-a-generation player of the cricketing world who has taken over every fan of the game with his charisma, angry young man attitude and most importantly the perfection in batting that the cricketer has achieved having put years and years of practice into his craft. Now, as the captain of the most influential cricketing team in the world, Kohli is in pursuit of immortalising his name amongst the greatest men of the sport through the years as he looks to bring India it's third World Cup title. And it is safe to say that the 30-year-old's determination to become a legend has already paid off well as on Wednesday, the ever so famous wax museum Madame Tussauds of London unveiled his statue at Lord's Cricket Ground in the English capital, symbolising the inception of the ICC World Cup 2019. Credit: Madame Tussauds Starting Thursday, the Indian skipper's statue will be displayed at Madame Tussauds until July 15 or the day of the final of the quadrennial tournament. Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “Cricket fever is set to sweep the nation in the coming weeks so what better way to unveil our new figure of Virat Kohli than with the help of our neighbours at Lord's. “We hope that cricket fans will enjoy not only watching their hero on the pitch but taking to the crease with him here at Madame Tussauds London.” The effigy also boasts of the official kit of the Men in Blue, launched especially for the 2019 World Cup alongside pairs of gloves and shoes that were donated by the cricketer himself. Tarah Cunynghame, Head of Retail & Tours at Lord's Cricket Ground, said: “Lord's is the perfect backdrop to reveal this fantastic figure of Virat Kohli on the eve of the Cricket World Cup. The anticipation of the exciting summer of cricket has already started, with thousands of visitors coming to the Ground and enjoying a tour of Lord's and around the MCC Museum." “The figure of the famous batsman will delight any cricket fans visiting Madame Tussauds London.” A man who grew up watching his inspirations such Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar achieve greatness on the field, now has a statue that will be placed next to theirs says a thousand words about how far the Delhi local has come. Credit: Madame Tussauds Virat Kohli and Team India are to begin their 2019 World Cup journey on 5th June 2019 against Faf du Plessis' South African team.
  7. According to a finding by 9to5Mac, Apple devices have now shown up in the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory database. The new iPhone models have shown up ahead of their release later this year and we finally know what the model numbers are. © YouTube The 2019 iPhones have appeared in the database with model numbers A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223. The database compiles a list of devices that depend on encryption technologies and most of Apple's devices both past and present are on that list. Similarly, earlier this year the iPad Air and iPad mini 5 were registered on the database five months ahead of its launch. According to the 9to5Mac's report, “The A2111, A2161, A2215 identifiers probably represent the new iPhone XR successor. The other model identifiers will be for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max.” The other model numbers are also expected to be different versions of the iPhone 11 and the iPhone R successor as different regions offer different cellular band compatibility. In the case of China, the iPhone comes with a physical dual SIM phone that is exclusive to the region. © Twitter 2019 iPhones are expected to look largely the same as the previous generation while previous leaks have suggested a triple-camera setup at the back. In terms of the feel of the phone, there are rumours that suggest that Apple is opting for a more matte finish instead of the glass back. Other new features include reverse wireless charging for the new AirPods and Apple new more A13 chipset. © Twitter Apple will be adding an extra sensor to both the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11/11Max as a form of upgrades. The iPhone XR is now rumoured to have a dual-camera setup similar to the iPhone XS whereas the iPhone 11 is expected to have a triple camera setup. The iPhone 11 is expected to have a larger camera bump and in the shape of a square. The additional third sensor is said to be an ultra-wide lens and will also be used for more detailed images at a standard zoom level. The new iPhones are expected to be announced at Apple's annual press event that is scheduled to take place sometime in September. Source: 9to5Mac
  8. The next generation of consoles is a hot topic right now in the gaming world even though no concrete release date has been confirmed yet. Having said that, Sony and Microsoft both have hinted what the next generation consoles will be all about. Mark Cerny, PlayStation's lead architect has already confirmed a few specifications and Xbox architect said that the Xbox Two (or whatever they decide to call it) will be even more powerful. The two consoles are already at battle with each other and we size up each of the consoles to find out who will rule the next generation of gaming: Graphics Fidelity © AMD As of now, we sort of know that the PlayStation 5 will have a GPU based on Ryzen's Navi architecture. It has now been confirmed that the PS5 will also support some form of ray-tracing. It will also support 8K graphics but not much is known how this will be achieved. This is purely based on reliable leaks and AMD has also hinted about it at its press events. On the other hand, the Xbox Two's GPU specification is completely unknown as nothing major has leaked as of now. However, some leaks say that the next Xbox will come in two variants, one being as powerful or more powerful than the PS5 and a cheaper model that will focus more on game streaming. Both Sony and Microsoft are aiming higher than the 10.7 TFLOPS benchmark which is higher than anything we've seen on a console before. The performance will reportedly compete with Google's Stadia streaming service as the company has promised the same performance for its service. Storage © YouTube Read and Write speeds are essential to cut download times in games and Sony has already confirmed that the company will be using an SSD that is considerably faster than what is available today. It is said to be faster than the current PC SSDs and will essentially result in faster load times when compared to the PS4/PS4 Pro. Microsoft has not detailed any specifications about the next generation but we can expect a similar SSD configuration for the next Xbox. Whether it will be faster than PS5 still remains to be seen. Backward Compatibility © Microsoft The Xbox One already supports backward compatibility on some games and it is likely that Microsoft will double-down on this policy. We can expect the next Xbox to support Xbox One games along with many Xbox 360 games. Mark Cerny has sort of confirmed that Sony's next console will be backwards compatible, unlike the PS4. It will also be compatible with PS4 VR games and the headset. Game Streaming Microsoft has already shown off Project xCloud, which is the company's new game streaming service that works on Android, PC and PCs. This will enable users to play games on any device they like and works somewhat similar to Google's Stadia service. Sony already has a game streaming service called “PlayStation Now” that doesn't really work as advertised. The service is currently not up to the mark and is unlikely to be able to match Microsoft's cloud computing prowess. Exclusive Games © Sony PlayStation The ultimate question that every console gamer is concerned about is the exclusive game library on each console. Currently, PlayStation's exclusive game library is far larger than what Microsoft has to offer and we can assume that future games like “The Last of Us: Part II”, “Ghost of Tsushima”, and “Death Stranding” will all be launch titles for the PlayStation 5 in addition to their complimentary launches for the PlayStation 4. Microsoft did announce acquisitions of new studios and we can expect the company to announce a few new games at E3 this year. As of now, we only know about “Halo Infinite” and it seems like 343 Industries is still in the early stages of development for the game. Who Will Rule The Next Generation? © BCCL To be honest, it is hard to pick a winner with very less information available right now. While both consoles have a robust community, Sony has an upper hand with exclusive titles. Having said that, if the future of gaming is streaming, we can expect Microsoft to give a better experience than Sony and could play a factor in its success. Both consoles seem to be very similar when it comes to technical specifications but we can only be sure once both companies officially unveil the two consoles.
  9. Even though the spoiler ban has officially been lifted, I will still be nice and put a disclaimer. 'Avengers: Endgame' spoilers ahead. PS: if you're a true Marvel fan and still haven't watched the movie, I'm judging you. All of us are still talking about 'Avengers: Endgame' but Marvel cannot wait anymore. After making over 2 billion dollars with just one movie, they're already focussing on their next multi-million dollar movie, which is of course 'Spider-man: Far From Home'. The first trailer was all fun - Peter Parker going on a much deserved vacation to Europe with his friends - but now things are getting serious and emotional. Now, Marvel can actually show Peter dealing with Tony's death in 'Endgame' freely. It's good that they're showing him mourning the loss of Tony, but I wasn't prepared to see Peter crying. Not cool, Marvel. After the heartfelt moment, it picks up and Spider-Man is back to joking around. It's again all fun and game till Nick Fury shows up and hijacks Peter's vacation. Actually, Nick Fury just saying 'Bitch please' was the highlight for me. We've all analysed everything related to 'Endgame' to death, so let's focus our energies on 'Far From Home' now. Here's everything that stood out for me from this trailer and also the reason that the next phase of Marvel Cinematic Universe is kicking off with a great movie. 1. Peter Ghosting Nick Fury Like father (figure), like son? Only Peter Parker and Tony Stark can get away with ghosting Nick Fury, tbh. 2. Multiverse?! “He's from earth, just not our earth.” I'm already so confused by alternate timelines and time travel in 'Endgame', a multiverse will just make it worse. 3. Nod To OG Avengers All the Avengers are busy and the responsibility of saving the world comes on to a friendly neighbourghood Spider-Man. With that, let's move on to the next point. 4. “I'm Just A Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-man.” That is it, this has already made the movie for me. I can't wait to see just this specific scene in theatres. 5. MJ Knows He's Spider-Man First Aunt May, now MJ. Peter really is the worst at hiding his secret identity. 6. Mysterio Possibly Referring To Tony's Death More emotional stuff. While we don't know if he's talking about Tony exactly, I think it's safe to assume and not just because Tony has been ready to sacrifice himself in literally every movie. 7. Tony's Glasses That looks exactly like Tony's glasses, but what is Peter doing with them? 8. Iron Man Refernce With Iron Man's Glove? What is that glove thing? What is happening? Is he going to be the next Iron Man? 9. New Spidey Stealth Suit Yes, it was there is the last trailer as well, but it's still cool, okay? Thanks.
  10. I feel like the pressure on 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is simply increasing by the day, because it's the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to come out after 'Avengers: Endgame'. Imagine you're in a talent competition and you find out you're going after say, Beyonce! And, no, this is not me hating on 'Spider-Man', that's not the case. Just stating a fact. But, we know the movie will do good because people love Tom Holland and his portrayal of Peter Parker. But, since it's coming out so soon after 'Endgame', it is bound to be connected to the movie, especially since Peter Parker is basically Tony Stark's 'ward'. Since it's confirmed that the events of 'Far From Home' take place shortly after the events of 'Endgame', it's not just the movie that will have spoilers for 'Endgame', but the trailer as well. Reportedly, the next trailer for 'Far From Home' - which is expected to drop on 6th May - might contain spoilers about 'Avengers: Endgame'. And, Marvel has reportedly decided to be nice for once and put a spoiler warning before the trailer, and Tom Holland himself will do the honours of that. Apparently, right before the trailer, a clip of Tom Holland will come and warn people about the spoilers. Yes, I see the irony, Tom Holland, the guy infamous for giving spoilers, will give a spoiler warning. 'ENDGAME' SPOILERS AHEAD I think it's safe to assume that 'Far From Home' will have Peter mourning and coping with Tony Stark's death but will they bring that right up in the trailer? Quite possible. Or maybe, the trailer will show that some people at Peter's school are now five years older, since it's not possible that every single one of them disintegrated after 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Side note: How is it possible that all of Peter's friends got disintegrated and then came back? I mean, it was a random selection of half the population but all of them seem to be back and are the same age, while we saw in 'Endgame' that everyone else who didn't turn to dust was five years older now. Is this a possible plot hole? Also, Marvel, please don't show Peter crying because of Tony's death, it'll be too hard to deal with. One more possibility for the 'Endgame' connection in 'Far From Home' is Mysterio's abilities, which include special effects and illusions, so what if he uses Tony, to manipulate Peter? That seems quite possible but it's also so brutal. Whatever it is, we'll just have to wait till Monday to find out. 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' will release on July 2nd.

  13. Video games may change as we know it, thanks to a new space that is going to be occupied by Google and even Apple. Companies like Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony need to be on the fence, as Google is about to enter the highly profitable video game business with Project Stream. Game Developer's Conference is about to take place next month and Google is said to unveil its gaming streaming service. The invitations were sent out for the March 19 keynote, however, did not mention the topic of discussion. © Gooogle The gaming unit is going to be building on the success of Project Stream where games will be running on the cloud and streamed directly to a PC, Tablet, TV or anything that has a display. The experience, however, still remains to be seen as the games will be streamed, and different types of internet connections may affect the overall experience. Laggy connections are a major concern when streaming games which could be a huge factor when considering a streaming service. The new streaming service is said to compete directly with Steam, the Epic Games Store and even consoles. Google is not the only tech giant that is looking into the video games industry, rumours suggest that even Apple is also looking at announcing its own version of a gaming console or a subscription service. © Gooogle Currently, Sony's streaming service called PlayStation Now offers 650 games on the PlayStation 4 which includes classic and catalogue titles. Microsoft is also looking into the game streaming, as the company has started public trials for Project xCloud which will let gamers stream Xbox One games to computer, phones and tablets. Would you stream games on your Tablet, PC or Smartphone? Let us know in the comments if Google's new project excites you. Source: Fortune
  14. The first trailer of 'Spiderman: Far From Home' dropped a couple of days ago, and it was the perfect distraction from all the incessant worrying that we have been doing about the fate of literally everyone in 'Avengers: Endgame'. However, Tony Stark's absence from the trailer did not help, with everyone already crying about his death, which people think is quite evident after this trailer, when it's actually not. But, we all have been on the internet long enough to know that the only way people online deal with emotions or excitement is memes, every time, without fail. So, obviously, a huge new trailer is the perfect meme opportunity. From ignoring all the apparent clues about Tony's death to finding even better reactions to that hilarious Happy-Aunt May interaction, here's how Twitter reacted to the trailer. Before that, on an unrelated note, here's the international trailer with some extra scenes in case you haven't seen it yet. Now, back to the memes! Same energy.

  15. Everyone's reaction after watching the 'Spiderman: Far From Home' trailer - Everyone's reaction right after realizing Tony Stark isn't in the trailer. Yep, almost every person jumped to the conclusion that Tony Stark will die in 'Avengers: Endgame' and that's the reason we don't have Peter Parker's mentor in the trailer. Moreover, just like every single Marvel movie trailer, everyone's dissected it completely to find clues and easter eggs, and 'Spiderman: Far From Home' is under even more scrutiny since it will be the first MCU movie after 'Avengers: Endgame', a movie where we are going to see so many of our favourite characters come back to life and so many characters die. So obviously, people are looking for any clues they can find and the biggest one was Tony Stark's fate. We have been hearing for so long that Tony will actually die and not be a part of any MCU movie after the fourth Avengers, mainly because Robert Downey Jr's contract is up. The absence of Tony from the Spiderman trailer didn't help the case and people found even more instances that would point to the fact that Tony and RDJ are gone from MCU forever. But, all the points can be explained and I'm going to try my best to do it. Here are some things that everyone considers to be pointing to Tony's death so let's go debunking! 1. Tony Stark is missing from the trailer Of course, they won't put Tony in the trailer when it's coming out before 'Avengers: Endgame'. The secrecy that revolves around everything Avengers related is not itself a secret. Marvel is not stupid enough to put Tony in the trailer and basically spoil 'Avengers: Endgame'. 2. Pepper signed the cheque Pepper has been running Stark Industries for years, it's pretty obvious she'll sign all the cheques and not Tony. She's CEO, bitch. 3. Peter apparently looks at the Spiderman suit sadly No, he did not, he really did not. People thought Peter looked sad looking at his suit which was made by Tony, but honestly, the scene just shows him deciding to not take his suit along with him, not taking his suit 'far from home'. 4. Happy says “You're all alone” This is the dialogue that caused so many people to speculate that Happy is referring to Tony - or rather his absence - but it could be about anyone. It will probably be Happy just telling Peter that he's alone in Europe, and doesn't have any other superhero to help him. 5. Tony just can't die No, I'm not saying that he's immortal or something, but I'm just straight up refusing the fact that Tony's dead or will die, at least until it actually happens. The man has gone through hell these last 10 years, he deserves to finally have a normal life.
  16. It would not be wrong to say that the saviors of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have done an incredible amount of work in the year 2018, thus adding a significant number of new age fans to a saga that has now turned a decade old. via GIPHY Films like 'Avengers: Infinity War', 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', 'Black Panther', and 'Deadpool 2' are responsible for grossing almost one-third of the total box office revenue worldwide this year. While these films have turned out to be highly commercial, they have also made the fans go crazy as phase 4, which is also the last phase of the MCU is going to mark its initiation in 2019. Information in bits and pieces is being given to the media so that the storylines could be avoided from getting leaked. Fans are expecting the bigger and larger than life version of their superheroes in the upcoming set of Marvel films. via GIPHY Though we don't really know the certainties of the future team Avengers, we may surely get a major hint in the 2019 release, 'Captain Marvel'. via GIPHY After digging a few sources and a lot of research, we have come up with a high-end scoop about the upcoming Marvel films (releasing in 2019). If you are a die-hard Marvel fan and missed something amidst so many films in production, this post is for you. Read ahead and know about what's coming up from Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future. Let us tell you that there is going to be the latest, more evolved versions of the old superhero characters that will be associated with these films: Captain Marvel With 'Captain Marvel', Academy Award winner Brie Larson is getting ready for the release of the most awaited female superhero film of 2019. via GIPHY By playing the lead in the film, which is also the alter ego of cosmic hero Carol Danvers, Brie Larson is making her debut for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film's powerful trailer which was released in September has already exceeded our expectations. Let us tell you that Captain Marvel has remained an accomplice to the Avengers, the glimpses of which would also be seen in the upcoming 'Avengers: Endgame'. The film also stars, Quentin Tarantino's favorite Samuel L. Jackson, actors Annette Bening, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, and Clark Gregg. Not to be forgotten, 'Enemy at the Gates' star Jude Law is also in the film. via GIPHY The film is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. From the trailer, one can easily figure out that the film is set in the 90s and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is dealing with amnesia. via GIPHY The protagonist finds it difficult to recall her past and leaves the viewers stunned, amidst an unpredictable dialogue, “I am not what you think I am”. While, Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) background monologue explains much about the film's theme, which definitely includes aliens, one looks forward to the film, especially when Captain Marvel is a female at the center of the narrative. We are getting 'Wonder Woman' vibes though! Avengers: Endgame While 'Avengers: Infinity War' was believed to be the biggest Marvel film ever, the audience gave a mixed reaction to the film. Let us tell you that the biggest Marvel film is yet to come and is already in the making. via GIPHY 'Avengers: Endgame' will conclude the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film will be a follow up to 'Avengers: Infinity War' and is also considered to be closely linked. The film will also be giving the final touch to many plots. via GIPHY The team of 'Avengers 4' is working day and night to take the Avengers game to the next level which also means that one would get to see the best from the MCU through this film. via GIPHY The flick will be releasing on May 3, 2019. The principal cinematography for the film started in 2017. The makers of the movie had earlier named it 'Avengers: Infinity War Part II', however, it was later discarded. 'Endgame' is being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. Spider-Man: Far From Home Though Spider-Man has always remained one of the favorite characters for Marvel fans, the superhero's popularity might see a major rise due to his inclusion in the upcoming Avengers films. via GIPHY It would not be wrong to say that Spider-Man is here to stay and entertain us for a good number of years. For now, Marvel and Sony have teamed up for a sequel to 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' which is temporarily being called 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' (as per Tom Holland's Instagram post). via GIPHY Let us tell you that the film has been scheduled for the release on July 5, 2019. This would also mark the initiation of phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Tom Holland who was also seen in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' would play the protagonist in the sequel, it has been reported that Jake Gyllenhaal might play the villain. via GIPHY However, we are just not sure as to how Peter Parker would make his return after the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The direction of the film will be handled by Jon Watts who also directed 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'. Dark Phoenix In September this year, 20th Century Fox released the trailer of another 'X-Men' film and named it 'Dark Phoenix'. If we talk about the 2016 film 'X-Men: Apocalypse', it was the young Jean Grey who saved Professor X (James McAvoy) from getting killed at the hands of the Apocalypse, ultimately discovering her superpowers. via GIPHY 'Dark Phoenix' will feature Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as the protagonist and will be a mix of her present and past lives. Though 'Dark Phoenix' is believed to be a forceful attempt to bring twists and turns into the already saturated series, the film seems to be losing its charm even before its release. Reason – The two major characters of the entire 'X-Men' franchise i.e. Logan and Professor X have already died in the 2017 film 'Logan'. 'Dark Phoenix' may only mix things up, as fans have already seen how Jean Grey died years back. via GIPHY Other than Sophie Turner, actors including Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult would also be seen, maybe for the very last time if this film has to be the end of the 'X-Men' franchise. 'Dark Phoenix' is directed by Simon Kinberg and will hit the theatres in June 2019. The New Mutants The 'New Mutants' is one film Marvel and 'X-Men' fans are eagerly looking forward to. As the title suggests, the film explores the horror-superhero genre and displays the story of teenage mutants getting a grip of their superpowers, while being captive at a secret facility. via GIPHY The film-makers have finalized a stunning cast for the film including actors Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Alice Braga, Charlie Heaton, and Henry Zaga. Earlier, the film was scheduled for April 2018, however, it has now been pushed to August 2, 2019. As per a few reports, certain scenes of the film are now being reshot to add the pinch of horror to it. In fact, major parts of the film are being shot again taking in view of the horror angle. The rating of the film has not been decided yet. 'The New Mutants' is being directed by Josh Boone. via GIPHY It will be interesting to see these teenage mutants getting to understand their powers. Remember, how it happened for the first time with the likes of Logan, Scott, Storm, and Mystique? via GIPHY Got any interesting scoop about these films? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming Marvel films!
  17. In December 2009, when James Cameron's 'Avatar' hit theatres, it smashed all previous grossing records. Till date, this science-fiction holds the record for being the world's highest grossing movie of all time. The film took 15 years for completion and also made James Cameron one of the greatest film-makers of all time. © Lightstorm Entertainment The director had once told Discovery that he sat down in 1995 to write a film that would push the CG art! And so it did. 'Avatar' redefined modern film-making and set benchmarks for world cinema. It gave the audience a completely new perspective about the modern-day filmography. © Lightstorm Entertainment Years later, when moviegoers have got their hands onto the IMAX and 5D experience of movie viewing, all they crave for is newness with every single film they watch. In times, when we have got the best from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and especially when fans have gotten deeply used to watching the next versions of their superheroes with every passing year, what should one expect from James Cameron's upcoming 'Avatar 2'? Almost a decade later, are fans still waiting for the film's sequel? Read below to understand more. Well, let us tell you that James Cameron's team is working day and night to bring the unseen from the world of Pandora on the silver screen back again. The franchise makers are taking their time as they have plans to make 'Avatar 2' a much grander experience than its previous instalment. The maestro recently dropped a major announcement saying that actors have wrapped up their shoot for the upcoming sequels i.e 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3'. The cast of these sequels include actors Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney, Stephen Lang, Joel David Moore, Dileep Rao, Matt Gerald, and Sigourney Weaver. Academy Award winner Kate Winslet is the newest addition to the cast. Though we were only expecting 'Avatar 2' to be under production, the announcement of the third part of the film happened to be a complete surprise. The principal photography of these two films has been completed; the actors have been working over the same for the past two years. Now, the toughest part of the production process has just begun for James Cameron's team. For the same, the director will now sit with experts to look after the CGI and other technical aspects. © YouTube/Discovery The stakes are already too high on these sequels and the production team would not leave any stones unturned, considering the previous records set by the film. 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm have already announced the release dates of the two films. 'Avatar 2' will be releasing on December 18, 2020, whereas 'Avatar 3' will hit the theatres on December 17, 2021. That's not all to it! Academy Award winner Kate Winslet, who has worked earlier with James Cameron in his iconic film 'Titanic', did a very tough training for a few scenes in the film. © Pinterest Free-diver Kirk Krach (a world champion) was hired as an underwater instructor by the film's team. From him, Kate Winslet learned to hold her breath underwater and nailed it by holding it for more than seven minutes. Apparently, the actress visibly turned blue! That's so Pandoran! Now, this is a sure shot reason why one must look forward to the film's sequels. It is time to sit back, wait for the film and thank the director for finally giving wings to 'Avatar 2' and 'Avatar 3'. It is better late than never!
  18. Movies are as much about escaping our present realities for a span of two hours, as it is about senseless entertainment and relaxation, because the purpose remains the same. However, escaping from the shoddy kind of non-existent, highly-unfulfilling love that you may have experienced through Tinder and Bumble recently, kind of - sort of, should be your priority. We know, “chick-flicks” and “rom-coms” aren't commonly a “thing” with the guys, but well these 10 movies come with a lot more than just sappy dialogues and an overdose of cringy love. These stories come in various shades of comedy, tragedy and all the in-between drama, so feel free to take your pick! 1. Love, Simon Based on popular YA novel, 'Love', this teen rom-com starring Nick Robinson as Simon Spier, is a story about a closeted gay teenager who begins communicating online with another closeted guy from his school. The action picks up when their messages land in the wrong hands, and his plan to come out at his convenience seems threatened. 2. Crazy Rich Asians One of the major hits this year, the story follows the life of a badass professor at NYU, Rachel Chu, who travel to Singapore with her boyfriend, Nick, for his best friend's wedding. This Singapore visit reveals that Nick is crazy rich, and she has to learn to get through life in Singapore high society with Nick's terrible mother. Trust us - this one demands repeat viewings! 3. To All The Boys I've Loved Before Teenagers around the world went gaga over this one and although this teen romance starring Lana Condor, Noah Centineo can seem a bit kiddish along the way, what with Lara jean writing secret love letters to her crushes over the years, who finally get hold of their letters, it really does work as a fresh, fun addition to the rom-com genre this year. 4. A Star Is Born A much awaited release of the year, the story follows Bradley Cooper as fading country music star Jackson Maine, who discovers a budding new talent in Ally (Lady Gaga). The two fall in love, but the struggles begin when Ally's fame starts to overshadow Jackson's popularity. 5. Set It Up A very entertaining feature film about two assistants (Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell) who play matchmaker for their overbearing bosses (Lucy Liu, Taye Diggs) in the hope of lightening their workload. But, of course, nothing goes as per the plans. 6. Book Club Unlike all the others on this list, this film about how four older women who are great friends with each other, read Fifty Shades of Grey as part of their monthly book club, and subsequently undergo a change regarding how they view their personal relationships. Unapologetic and entertaining all at once, get ready for a ride with this one. 7. Adrift A romantic drama inspired by a true story of a couple who sailed into a hurricane in 1983, without much knowledge about how to navigate through it. The story follows their journey of how they find a way to save themselves in the aftermath. 8. The Kissing Booth A fun, teenage high-school rom-com that follows the life of Ella and involves a super-cool and caring best friend, his hot brother and her massive crush which threatens to break the “best friend code” and a kissing booth. Love and emotions rage high in this teen drama, so be sure to give it a try. 9. Juliet, Naked Annie and Duncan, are on the brink of separation. Their relationship hits an even rockier patch when Annie begins an online friendship with Tucker Crowe, a faded indie rocker—who also happens to be Duncan's favorite musician. 10. Midnight Sun Starring Bella Thorne as a young woman with an extreme sensitivity to sunlight, who finally meets the guy she's always admired from afar, the story reveals what happens when she tries to hide her condition from him. Will love win this time?
  19. The ketogenic diet is the new in-thing for fad dieters across the globe lately. The fad has become so popular that anyone and everyone who knows about this diet is supposedly an expert in nutrition now. How Is It A Fad Diet? It makes dubious claims like there is no other diet you should follow, it treats diseases medical science has spent decades on researching and they are still finding a way out, it has magical superpowers, you will spot unicorns if you go on this diet and so on. I do not hate the dietary pattern as such but it is promoted as the only thing that works and that is my problem. And then there is a certain section of hardcore fad fanatics who take it to the next level of stupidity. In the nutrition world, we like to call them keto-tards. What are the five signs that someone has become a keto-tard? 1) They Buy Ketone Supplements These supplements suggest that they induce dietary ketosis and thus you will end up burning more fat as fuel. This makes keto-tards stick to their ketone supplements like a bee to honey. Maybe the analogy is pointless as honey is not keto friendly. Getting back to the point, dietary ketosis does not mean anything unless you are in a caloric deficit. You can have all the ketones running in your blood and still get fat if you eat more calories. 2) They Keep Adding Fat To All Their Food © YouTube Coffee? Add butter and coconut oil. Eggs? Add heaps of butter to it. Meat? Have the fattiest portion and cook it with more fat. That, right there, is a logical fallacy. How so? The idea that someone had to go on a diet was to cut down their caloric intake and lose some weight. By just adding a lot of fat to every meal of theirs and not accounting for it, they are inviting more trouble to their bodies. 3) Calories Do Not Count This is the epitome of stupid by keto-tards. Just because they can induce self-suffering by cutting out an entire macronutrient from their diets, they think they supersede the laws of thermodynamics and become some special beings. Calories do not count on keto? Yeah, and earth is flat. © YouTube 4) They Keto Recipe Everything These fad fanatics create keto version of every possible food on the planet. They will add either some very expensive ingredients or will create some magical concoction of food items just to get a taste similar to that of the normal and easy to prepare recipes out there. And the funny part is, most of these recipes are twice the caloric value of the original recipe, thrice in the cost of preparation, and taste something that is not even close to the original delicacy. How is that helpful? 5) They Think Keto Is The Answer To Everything Why is there a world war? Because not everyone follows keto. Why are there natural disasters? Because people were not on a keto diet! That may be exaggerated but these keto-tards do end up preaching keto as the tell-all solution to health and lifestyle disorders. Which, clearly, is not the case and there is evidence suggesting otherwise. But again, they have a moral responsibility to push their keto-tardness on everyone in sight. To conclude, follow a ketogenic diet if you want to. Time and again it has not shown to be beneficial, sustainable or performance friendly. If you still think it suits you better, more power to you.

  20. Periods. Menstruation. Menses. Catamenia. Masika. No matter which term you choose to pick in order to communicate anything related to this basic biological process in women, you'll be met with a lot of wagging tongues and disapproving looks from men and women alike. The rebuke, disapproval and judgement take on a whole different look when you are a woman openly engaging in a discourse pertaining to a matter that's as real a part of your world, as is breathing. Something that affects a woman's life from puberty till menopause. On the other hand, men who encourage open discussions around menstruation are met with traumatised expressions, suggestive taunts and even resistance to a great extent. However, before we move any further, there are a few facts that the naysayers and sceptics need to consider before disregarding this story as yet another feminist piece of writing. © Thinkstock For something as significant as a period to a woman, it is appalling to see that 71% of girls in India have no knowledge about menstruation before their first period (Menstrual Health Report-FSG). Another UKAID survey found that 10% of the Indian girls thought menstruation was a disease, while 87% of the girls in the rural and semi-rural sector have no knowledge about the purpose of menstruation as a biological process (UnicefMHM). The underlying reason behind it all is that mothers and other women around these girls, shy away from discussing periods with them. With such a drastic breach in awareness amongst girls and women who are directly affected by periods, one can only wonder about the depth of ignorance the men in our society might be subjected to regarding this issue. Period being a taboo in our country is no news to us. The term and anything to do with it is supposed to be kept under wraps at all times. It is often also treated as an excuse to label bleeding women as impure and inept by the ones with little (or no) mental prowess or awareness. © Thinkstock Take the uproar against the Sabarimala Temple verdict for instance. Smriti Irani's stunted comment on the issue only underlines the larger reality of how disengaged and misinformed we are as a society. When educated grown-ups come across as disappointments who seemed to have missed out on civilisation, the future seems pretty bleak. But, hold up, there exist numerous men scattered around the country, who are breaking away from the taboos, one digression at a time. From a class of young 13-year-olds to grown-up men who are consciously making an effort to bring about a change, we have come a long way. In her recent column in The Indian Express, journalist and deputy-editor Shalini Langer shared an account involving her daughter and her classmates(consisting of both girls and boys) at Shri Ram School, Moulsari, who decided to keep a period box in their classroom for the ease of the young girls. A 'period box' in classroom. Could we ask for more? Shout out to my daughter Medini, her friend Nairah, their Class 8 E, their teacher Janani Iyer, and Shri Ram School, Moulsari. Minister @smritiirani, meet some leaders https://t.co/sb3rGRKVmq — shalini langer (@shalinilanger) October 25, 2018 After a lengthy discussion around menstruation and what it means to the young girls, the boys raised their own queries, which were addressed by the girls and teacher present in the class. Post the dialogue, the boys decided that keeping a period box in the class was indeed in the best interest of their female classmates. Another instance of men trying to bring about a change in people's mindset and cast away the blinds of societal taboo is the story of this Mumbaikar, who believes ours is the generation which can break the stereotypes around periods and create a new normal. Read his fresh perspective and active thinking, which is also reflective of how we are maturing and evolving as a generation. View this post on Instagram “I come from a simple middle class family. My mom got married when she was 18 and had me by 19. She's always been a very shy person.. So when she needed pads, she'd send me to bring them. The 1st time, I was 8 years old when she wrote it down on a piece of paper and sent me to the medical store. I had no idea what pads were & when I gave the note to the pharmacist, he looked shocked! He packed the pads under a layer of newspapers and told me to hide it under my shirt and rush home. But I got curious and threw the newspapers on the way… everyone stared at me weirdly, my mother was surprised to see me bring her pads so openly, but it didn't affect me. In fact, from then on - I went to buy her pads whenever she couldn't go. A few years later, she explained to me what menstruation was and why pads were taboo. By then, it was very normalised in my house but I suppose it wasn't for others. In school, a girl stained her skirt. She had to face a class full of students pointing and laughing at her while she was stuck to her bench, too scared to move. I held her hand and went with her to get help, worrying about what the teacher might say but, she just patted my back and told me she was proud of me. My life has been shaped by incidents like these, and each time I'm taken aback by the reactions people have about something as natural as periods… In my family, I wasn't told that menstruating is 'weird' or 'dirty.' It's a normal, body function. Why make it into something more? The way I see it, this generation is about breaking stereotypes, no matter how long it takes. If we start being open about it, eventually it's going to be normalised. I was constantly asked, 'Why are you doing a girl's work?' or 'why are you touching pads?' It doesn't bother me. Women have it tough enough as it is, keeping a straight face while going through so much pain. They have to suffer the pressures at school, work, home -- Why add to that? We need to not worry about what people might say. Menstruation is normal, and sanitary pads are a necessity. Isn't it sad that it's easier for a man to buy condoms than it is for a woman to buy pads?” A post shared by Humans of Bombay (@officialhumansofbombay) on Sep 28, 2018 at 5:34am PDT The co-founder and president of Muse, Nishant Bangera, is also the mastermind behind the initiative 'Maasika Mahotsav' which aims to normalise menstruation, initiate a discussion around it, and thus help to banish the taboos and “shame” that is attached to it. Speaking about the kind of progress Indian men have made when it comes to their understanding of menstruation, Nishant told MensXP that, “there has been a considerable amount of change(in outlook) in the urban areas. Whereas in the rural and semi-urban areas the taboos are still very prevalent.” He also pointed out that the said taboos are stronger in these areas because of the men. For instance, “the men in these areas tell their mother that you're not supposed to touch me,” he said. On the other hand, he points out that, “the urban, tech-savvy crowd is changing and they are more open to having a discussion and actually listening to the other side of the story”. © Pixabay However, he also adds that the older generation of women in the urban areas are gradually opening up to the changes that surround the issue. They open to discussing periods at home, however, “they are still concerned about things such as not entering the temple, not touching certain things or participating in certain activities, which is in a way prohibiting their younger generation from shedding the stereotypes.” Nishant also believes that our generation is playing a pivotal part in this shift. “On one hand, we have the older generation that is gradually opening up, and on the other, we have the upcoming generation which is more vocal and accepting.” We agree to what Nishant said, and believe that we have come a long way given the circumstances religion and customs have established for us, but there's still a long way to go.
  21. Ayushmannn Khurrana is a powerhouse of talent and with those handsome looks comes a full house of insane power in the actor. He can sing, dance and with his choice of movies, he has obviously proved that he can act pretty well. The latest movie getting him rave reviews is his latest outing 'Andhadhun'. The internet has given its nod to this mystery movie and people are loving it. #Andhadhun What a seat thriller. Brilllant Performance by @ayushmannk and #Tabu.

Acting, writing, direction everything was topnotch. Loved seeing Pune on screen. — Reemz (@FawadFan4ever) October 4, 2018 While many movie critics have passed this one and there's not much of an opinion there, but you don't need that nod because Twitter is currently raving about everyone in the movie, including Tabu and Radhika Apte. Nice unpredictable entertaining movie 3.5* ...Every minute, second and millisecond counts, in the unpredictable, crazy ride that is #Andhadhun,your script selection is best | @ayushmannk #Tabu you were awesome @radhika_apte ð — P.

Better performed, deeper. If you have to watch one Hindi film this year, #AndhaDhun is the one. Will make the Coens smile. Tabu is Queen! Ayushmann plays it so well that your interpretation of that bloody brilliant end will reveal who you are. — Sudhish Kamath (@SudhishKamath) October 4, 2018 So I guess it is indeed justified to say it is the best movie by far this year? #AndhaDhun is the best thriller suspense movie in the world of cinema by far. You cannot predict even a second what's going to be next. Neither can blink. A complete roller coaster ride in the end. @ayushmannk at his BEST. â¤ï¸ — L!

Hope this one is a massive success! — suyashtrivedi (@suyashtrivedi) October 4, 2018 Well, you should book your tickets, because I guess that's my cue to book mine at least.
  22. The very popular comedy group AIB is a bag of controversies, and once against it is trending on social media for all the wrong reasons. AIB comedian and YouTuber Utsav Chakraborty has been accused of sending sexually explicit and obscene messages and texts to women, some of whom were minor. It all started with a Twitter thread, where a female comedian shared stories of several women, who claimed to have recieved explicit pictures from the comedian. In fact, he has been accused of asking women for nude pictures too. Instagram She wrote, "I want everyone to know @Wootsaw is a piece of sh*t. He sent me a d**k pic, was creepy, then cried saying I'll ruin his career if I tell others." She further mentioned that she told "two of the most influential men in comedy in India" but nothing happened. Saw this on my tl. Interesting for you to comment on how Indian men harass women — Mahima Kukreja ð±ðâð½ (@AGirlOfHerWords) October 4, 2018 Did they send unsolicited dick picks or that's safely only your territory? Or like cry after saying you'll ruin their career if you tell others? Or will they also blame that on the girls? The harassment they got that is. — Mahima Kukreja ð±ðâð½ (@AGirlOfHerWords) October 4, 2018 She then went on to mention what all messages he has allegedly sent to other women. These accusations came after he condemned sexual harrasment by Indian men on social media. Hey Utsav. How many girls have you harassed you vile man. These messages for a young girl I know. pic.twitter.com/fXGWpbqfqf — Mahima Kukreja ð±ðâð½ (@AGirlOfHerWords) October 4, 2018 Hey Utsav. You give your number and slide into DMs of literal children. Like 17 year old girls? You're a creep of another level. pic.twitter.com/sjdJ5uf8dg — Mahima Kukreja ð±ðâð½ (@AGirlOfHerWords) October 4, 2018 Hey Utsav you asshole. Do you like DMing girls you don't even know to send nudes? You vile man pic.twitter.com/rAklrKjcke — Mahima Kukreja ð±ðâð½ (@AGirlOfHerWords) October 4, 2018 Post the allegations, AIB released a statement condemning Utsav's alleged behaviour. Also, until any result comes out from the investigation, they have delisted all the videos featuring Utsav, from their channels. Statement pic.twitter.com/eLpthXifwf — All India Bakchod (@AllIndiaBakchod) October 4, 2018 Screenshot Utsav hasn't been exactly silent on these allegations against him but he hasn't accepted them either. He wrote, "I don't know what to say here and fight back (or even if I should). Literally everyone I know turned against me and I don't blame them for that. But the whole thing is far more complicated than it appears." Statement 1/n pic.twitter.com/sIouz4UsaR — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 To be honest, from all accounts, I've been a piece of shit. And I will try to do everything I can work past that. There was no excuse. I know inconsiderate and entitled. Even in this narrative, when this whole thing started, I kept looking at myself as the victim. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 I tried to talk to Mahima (@agirlofherwords) & sort it out way back in 2016. She would have none of it and why would she? She has never known me in real life, and even if she did - how is that for a respite? Even if my intention wasn't to make her feel shitty the truth is, I did. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 And yes I did grovel. Tell her my career would be over before it began. That I have medical issues that I have to deal with for life. And those are expensive issues. But to use my illness as a crutch is stupid. But it's not like it's not relevant to this whole debacle. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 To me, getting nudes from a person was an instant rush. I was not in pain for that brief moment. Someone trusted me with that information. I would feel honoured and not ugly. But this caught me into a weird spiral. Where I would ask anyone who was nice to me in the slightest. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 How can I be a misogynist when I call it out constantly? Even if I was entitled I would think that life has been unfair to me, it gave me a disease without a cure. And I wouldn't give it a second thought. I would go from one painkiller haze to another and keep messaging. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 And as for asking for nudes from underaged people, I cannot and will not ever do that. The person in question can pull up screenshots and I would be proved forthright. But again, it doesn't mean I wasn't an entitled piece of shit who asked out everyone in his know. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 There were instances where I would have a long and intimate conversation with one person and then continue the same conversation with a whole different human being. I wouldn't realise till the other person pointed out. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 But now I know I have been the exact monster I've been trying to fight all my life. And I would like to do everything I can to make this better for everyone who has been hurt. Everything short of killing myself. And trust me, that has crossed my mind so often today. — Utsav (@Wootsaw) October 4, 2018 In fact, he has since posted a series of tweets where he tried to justify his actions and in all honesty we are equally confused and clueless like everyone out there.
  23. What's the one thing that is common between Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar? Well, both of them are amazingly successful in their own domains in Bollywood, but that is not what we are talking about here. Both of them are hardcore fashionistas and are absolutely fearless when it comes to their individual styles - which tbh, are rather conspicuous in their own right. Recently, this has become all the more eye-catching, thanks to their colourful shenanigans. Ranveer and KJo seem to be on their own individual fashion trips, and the thing that unites them is the free-spirited, wild usage of vibrant colours in their outfits. Karan recently went to Paris for the Paris Fashion Week, and was impressively, colourfully Gucci-ed up for his appearances. © Instagram Be it multicoloured panther bomber jackets to statement fluorescent pieces, he knows how to pull off risky pieces with charming, reckless abandon. © Instagram Ranveer wasn't far behind and wore equally explosive outfits in terms of colour. Be it his dazzling firework-inspired outfit by designer Lecoanet Hemant, or a suit in fluoro fuchsia, if anyone can keep up with KJo, it's him. © Instagram © Twitter Both of them clearly have an inexplicable affinity towards orange hoodies as well. © Instagram © Instagram We all could use some colour around, and want this colourful battle to continue, till Holi is actually around the corner.
  24. In 2018, Hollywood offered multiple high octane action blockbuster movies to the audience ranging from superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy and horror genres. Considering the films which released in Indian theatres, here is the best films of Hollywood so far. Black Panther Ryan Coogler's Black Panther was a game-changer in the superhero genre since it tried to rise above any another superhero film. By infusing the rich African culture in its narrative, Black Panther was unlike any other commercial Hollywood film. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures With Black Panther, Ryan Coogler pushed T'Challa, the king beyond his own doubts and fears as he was facing a mightier villain played by Michael Jordan. He also gave us Shuri and Okoye, the gutsy female supporting characters who would help Wakanda in times of post Infinity Wars crisis. The only let-down about the film was the story, which was just another Baahubali staged drama. Incredibles 2 14 years after the first film released, Incredibles 2 brought back the same charm of a family of superheroes with dollops of humor. The highlight of the film is little Jack Jack who stole our hearts away with his unlimited superpowers. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures While the animation was on point, the story could have been improvised but blame it to the shuffling of the release dates with Toy Story 4. We hope Brad Bird gives us an incredibly great Incredibles 3 in just a span of few years. Ready Player One Set in 2045 - Columbus City of Ohio, Steven Spielberg's new virtual reality adventure gets your attention from the word 'GO'. Imagination is the key to a brilliant execution and Ready Player One is a rare example of cinematic achievement in the visuals department since Avatar. With extensive use of some amazing concepts and elements, this film was best experienced in IMAX 3D. © Warner Bros. Pictures Even though the film is set in 2045, the story relies heavily on experiences and our childhood wonders from 1990s to our present (the advent of virtual reality). Spielberg is here for sort of a redemption since his last visual tryst with The BFG didn't fly and here he is keen to take you on one of its kind of a helluva ride. Avengers: Infinity War The film is more like a chessboard where Avengers, a team of 22 superheroes join hands against Thanos and The Black Order. In all these 10 years, Marvel has been setting up this chessboard quite well and puts all together while raising the stakes with enough check-mate moments. © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures What Avengers Infinity Wars does extremely well is that it establishes Thanos as a supreme villain who quests to deliver 'mercy' without mercy. The characters are put to test in every scene which brings out the complexity in their own personal lives and superhero powers. This movie connects and balances the story arcs across all characters. On a separate note, with 2 Sherlock minds put together Avengers 4 will be great watch. A Quiet Place Horror is a very tricky genre where a compelling story, ample scares and logic can hardly fit together. A Quiet Place is a rare feet in the horror genre as it ravels you in its well-crafted narrative by scaring you from a plot that quizzes your brain and raises your heartbeat rather than throwing ghosts at you in your face. The film works mostly for the way the story is told through its spine chilling technique. © Paramount Pictures The story only rises through each and every scene with its crisply written narrative and drawing the different characters just relevant to the theme which the film wishes to explore. There is no unnecessary baggage here as it chose to go without a background to the story. John Krasinski, the director puts you right there alongside himself and his family just like last years' Dunkirk. His direction is perfect in every frame as he leaves his audience in sheer shock every moment of the film.
  25. Looks like 2018 so far has been a great year for Bollywood movies, money wise. There have been a bunch of hit movies and also some really terrible ones that basically sucked, but still managed to join the elite 100 Crore Club for no apparent reason. (I'm lying, I know the reason, some people prefer mediocrity over actually good movies with substance) So, here's a list of all the movies that a lot of people wanted to see and well, that worked out in the favour of the makers because, let's just say, these movies made a shit ton of money. Here's the list of Bollywood movies to cross Rs. 100 crores in 2018 so far: 1. Padmaavat I mean, after all the controversies and so much hate and riots, if this didn't do well at the box office, we all should've really been worried about the universe being broken. After its release, it became one of the fastest 100 crore earner ever by managing to earn a whopping amount of Rs. 166.50 crore within a week. It even went on to collect around 500 crores overall, and I feel like a lot of people just went to see what the hype was all about and why some people wanted to cut off Deepika Padukone's nose. 2. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety I don't think people initially expected this movie to do so well, but hey, we were all in for a pleasant surprise. The movie ended up crossing the 100 crore mark within a month of its release. 3. Raid Ajay Devgn's 'Raid' has a lifetime collection of Rs. 103.07 crore at the box office so it just tipped over and its way into the club. 4. Baaghi 2 People love Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani for their respective talents, but they love them, even more, when they're together, so this movie was destined to do well from the beginning as it seems. By being a truly entertaining movie, it managed to collect about Rs. 164.38 crore. 5. Raazi Everyone loves Alia Bhatt and everyone loves Vicky Kaushal, and when you add a kickass storyline with some stellar acting, the movie honestly starts selling itself. The movie ended up getting great reviews and joined the Rs. 100 crore club in less than a month. 6. Sanju This one shouldn't really surprise anyone, to be honest, since 'Sanju' is like the movie of the year. The movie was watched by people who love Bollywood, and also by those who don't, but it was applauded equally by everyone. The movie has not only earned more than Rs.100 crores, it has also made its way into the top 10 highest grossing Indian movies, not just Bollywood movies. 7. Race 3 Now, this one doesn't surprise me, but it disappoints me immensely. But, what can you do, people can't help but watch Salman Khan movies, apparently. The movie has reportedly earned more than Rs.166 crores at the Box Office and mediocrity won! 8. Stree Another surprise hit, but we all know how great of an actor Rajkummar Rao is and his movies deserve at least one watch. The movie ended up crossing the Rs.100 crore mark within three weeks after some great reviews. 9. Gold Of course, the list wouldn't have been complete without Akshay Kumar and he literally struck gold with 'Gold'. The movie has a total collection of over Rs. 105 crores. 10. Veere Di Wedding I don't think people liked the movie that much, but with such a huge star cast, everyone was curious about it and well, it paid off. The movie has reportedly earned over Rs. 138.80 crores.
