  1. Jack Ma, after being missing for several months, has finally resurfaced for the first time in a video that was released today. There was speculation that Ma was missing because of CCP’s (Chinese Communist Party) crackdown on big tech in the country and scrutiny over Ma’s internet empire. The 56-year-old billionaire was spotted in a video where he interacted with 100 rural teachers via video conference, according to a local government media report. This marks the billionaire's first appearance since late October as the CEO was suspected of being detained for making comments against the Chinese authorities. © Reuters Jack Ma was first reported missing after he failed to appear as a judge for a talent show he created in October 2020. There were many theories, however according to people familiar with the matter, Ma was not missing but “laying low” following a Chinese regulatory crackdown. Some sources also claimed that Ma was asked to maintain a “low profile.” Before his disappearance, Ma criticised China’s regulatory system in Shanghai during a forum in Shanghai. He criticised the regulatory system for “stifling innovation” and compared the country’s banks to “pawnshops." © Twitter In the newly released 50-second video, Ma is looking to spend more time on philanthropy and did not make any mention of the investigation into Ant Group. Prior to his disappearance, Ant Group was prevented from a massive $37 billion IPO by the Chinese authorities who asked the company to revamp its lending business to meet capital requirements. Soon after, an anti-monopoly investigation was launched against the Alibaba Group last month. BREAKING: Alibaba founder Jack Ma, who had not been seen in public in nearly 3 months, appears on video, saying: "We’ll meet again after the epidemic is over" pic.twitter.com/aFQyDWB7wQ — BNO News (@BNONews) January 20, 2021 Every year, Jack Ma holds a ceremony organised by his foundation for teachers in the Chinese seaside city of Sanya. He addressed the teachers who won the Jack Ma Rural Teachers Award in the video. “We cannot meet in Sanya due to the epidemic,” he said in the speech, which did not discuss his whereabouts. “When the epidemic is over, we must find time to make up for everyone’s trip to Sanya, and then we will meet again,” he added. The company plans to raise at least $5 billion through the sale of a U.S. dollar-denominated bond this month which could be the reason behind Ma’s resurfacing on video. View the full article
  2. Apple’s next iPhone could include an in-screen fingerprint sensor that we’ve been wanting ever since it was removed when Face ID was first introduced. A new report by Bloomberg suggests the new fingerprint scanner will coexist with Face ID instead of being a replacement for it. Apple has been developing an in-screen fingerprint scanner technology for years and might finally be ready to implement it. © Youtube_Verge Android smartphones already use an in-display fingerprint sensor for years alongside some form of facial recognition. iPhone users have been asking for the feature to make a return and Apple has managed to bring it back on the new iPad Air as it is side-mounted on the power button. Face ID is quite fast and reliable when it comes to the Face Unlock feature. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been a problematic method of unlocking the smartphone as the world embraced masks for protection. With the Touch ID, users will be able to unlock the smartphone relatively faster without having to remove the mask much like how it is on Android smartphones. Having said that, it isn’t certain whether Apple will use an in-display fingerprint reader on the next iPhone or whether it will be side-mounted on the power button like the iPad Air. Other rumours suggest that the next iPhone will finally incorporate a 120Hz ProMotion display and remove the charging port in favour of wireless charging exclusively. © YouTube Other reports have also suggested new hardware upgrades when it comes to the next iPhone as it is rumoured the smartphone will have a more capable ultra-wide camera. We have already seen a huge leap in the camera department thanks to Apple’s computational photography feature. However, the next iPhone is expected to come with significant hardware improvements this year. Apple is expected to launch the next lineup of smartphones in September this year with the phones going on sale in October or November. Apple might move the launch of the iPhone permanently to October as there was a delay for the iPhone 12 due to Coronavirus pandemic. It could be possible that Apple might make the change permanent similar to how it was done for the 2011 iPhone 4s. Before the iPhone 4s, new iPhones were launched either in June or July. However, since then Apple has been known to launch a new iPhone every year sometime in September. Source: Bloomberg View the full article
  3. Kangana Ranaut’s fans can rejoice now as her much-awaited film, Dhaakad, a mega action-entertainer will have a theatrical release on October 1 this year. The Queen actor took to social media to announce the date along with a new poster. Dhaakad’s new poster features Kangana in a fierce look. She plays Agent Agni in Dhaakad, which she said is ‘India’s first female led action thriller’. Sharing the poster on Twitter, Kangana wrote, “She is fearless and Fiery! She is Agent Agni India’s first female led action thriller, #Dhaakad releasing in theatres on 1st October 2021!@SohamRockstrEnt @DeepakMukut @RazyGhai @sohelmaklai @sohailmaklai @AsylumFilms @rampalarjun @divyadutta25 @writish @DhaakadTheMovie.” She is fearless and Fiery!

Kangana, who will play the role of Agent Agni in the film, recently flew to Bhopal to kickstart the shooting of the film and has got her fans super thrilled. To add to the excitement, the makers have revealed a new look today which features Kangana wielding a sword against the backdrop of gore. The actor looks fierce and promising in the avatar of a female action hero. Here’s how people on Twitter reacted to the poster: All the best Kangana ji — Madhu Ranjan (@MadhuRa63210437) January 18, 2021 Good luck Mam — Shaira Rajput (@RajputShaira) January 18, 2021 Amazing poster !! — Ruchi Pandey (@Ruchi4Tweets) January 18, 2021 Amazing ! — 2021 (@Abhineet_) January 18, 2021 सुपर से भी सुपरहिट जाएगी क्योकि आपके साथ सारे रास्ट्रवादी लोग हैं आप खुद धाकड़ हो आयरन लेडी सच्चाई की बुलंद आबाज — LUCKY CHAUDHARY (@LuckyDeshwal07) January 18, 2021 Wow!

Best of luck, woman. Keep doing what do best! #Dhaakad — AB (@arpitabhawal) January 18, 2021 Talking about the new poster, Kangana, in one of her interviews, said, “Dhaakad is India’s first female led high octane spy thriller and I am excited as this film is going to mark the beginning of a new era for Indian cinema. An action entertainer of this huge scale deserves a holiday weekend release and I can’t wait for the audience to meet Agent Agni on 1st October”. The makers have also roped in Tetsuo Nagata, an award winning cinematographer who has worked in major Hollywood action flicks. Dhaakad, touted to be a world class spy thriller, is directed by Razneesh Razy Ghai and produced by Deepak Mukut and Sohel Maklai. Presented by Soham Rockstar Entertainment Pvt Ltd in association with Kamal Mukut, Sohel Maklai Productions and Asylum films, the action-thriller is written by Chintan Gandhi and Rinish Ravindra.

  4. Today, India finally starts the world’s biggest vaccination drive against COVID-10 which has infected more than a crore people in the country. The pandemic has already killed more than 1.5 lakh people in India, however, there is now good news. India will have over 3,000 sessions, around 100 beneficiaries from the 3 crore priority group that consists of healthcare and frontline workers as the rollout was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this morning. © Reuters The first phase of the COVID-19 vaccination starts with two approved vaccines i.e. ‘Covishield’ and ‘Covaxin’. The first phase of the world’s biggest inoculation drive against the novel virus is expected to be completed in the next few months. The exercise will be conducted for individuals above the age of 18, for the moment, and each site will function similar to an election booth. Workers will have three hard copies of the beneficiary list and the names will also be uploaded by officials to the Co-Win portal. Today’s list was uploaded earlier this week on Thursday and will follow similar steps in days to follow. © Reuters An official said: “The vaccination session is from 9 am to 5 pm. Whoever comes till 5 pm will be vaccinated even after 5 pm, just like how it happens in elections.” The vaccines that will be administered in the first phase will be free. “The Centre will bear the expenses for vaccinating the 3 crore priority population,” PM Narendra Modi said earlier this week. © Reuters Out of the two approved vaccines, Covishield is the Indian variant of a vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford called the AZD122. The vaccine is being developed and manufactured in the country by Pune-based Serum Institute of India (SII). Currently, SII is capable of manufacturing over 2 million doses per day from a single line of production. © Reuters The company will be adding six more lines in the coming weeks to increase the output levels. Covaxin, the second vaccine has been developed by Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech in partnership with the National Institute of Virology. At the moment, there are 1.1 core doses of Covishield and 55 lakh doses of Covaxin available for administration. Each person has to get two shots of both vaccines within the span of 28 days apart. India has already conducted three mock drills in preparation of the rollout and the exercise was carried out to test the logistical and operational capabilities for the rollout. View the full article

  6. The iPhone 12 display has been rumoured to get upgrades for a while and it seems like this time Apple may finally catch up with its Android counterparts. The iPhone 13 is expected to have upgrades that we will also fund in flagship 2021 smartphones. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Many expected the iPhone 12 series to make the jump to 120Hz displays however that wasn’t the case. The iPhone 13 though is rumoured to be using advanced 120Hz LTPO displays made by Samsung according to a report by The Elec. LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) is a type of transistor that is a part of smartphone displays. However, this transistor enables phones to have a variable refresh rate display and lets displays tick between frames automatically. Samsung already uses LTPO in their displays in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and will also be used for the upcoming Galaxy S21 Series. Unlike other phones that use higher refresh rates, the iPhone 13 will be able to adapt the refresh rate according to what a user is doing. Higher refresh rate displays are known to drain a lot of battery and in turn reduces the phones’ overall battery backup. To counter this problem, the LTPO enables the phone to adapt the refresh rate on the fly. This means the iPhone 13 will be able to increase the refresh rate when playing games or drop it down when on the home screen. This helps in conserving battery life and we’ve already seen this implementation on the iPad Pro. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Having said that, not all models of the iPhone 13 will be getting the higher refresh rate displays. Much like the iPhone 12 Series, the next iPhone is touted to have four models where the higher refresh rate display will only be used for the ‘Pro’ models. The Elec’s report also states that it won't be until 2022 when all models get LTPO displays. Samsung will be the only supplier of the new displays for now while other companies like LG display will start supplying components not until 2022. This would explain why only two models will be getting a higher refresh rate display. The iPhone 13 won’t launch until September 2021 and Apple has enough time to figure out how to use a higher refresh rate display with iOS until the launch. There’s also a good chance that Apple might bring back the fingerprint sensor by side-mounting it on the power button. Apple has already used this technique on the new iPad Air and because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems logical to have an alternate way to unlock iPhones apart from using FaceID.

  8. FAU-G, a game by Indian company nCORE Games now has an official launch date and the timing could not be more perfect. The game is set to launch on 26th January, Republic Day as it was announced via a teaser trailer. The trailer showed us what the game entails and gave a preview of the Ladakh episode where Indian soldiers will be battling against PLA troops. © nCore-Games The game is also going to feature an episode surrounding the Galwan valley incident which was first teased last year on Dusshera. The trailer did not reveal any gameplay mechanics or features of the game which we should know closer to the launch. The game features dialogue in Punjabi and it isn’t clear at the moment whether FAU-G will also have support for other languages. © nCore-Games FAU-G has already received over one million pre-registration in 24 hours and it would be interesting to see how the first-person shooter game will handle the multiplayer aspects. The game was announced soon after the PUBG Mobile ban in India, capitalising on the void left by the popular battle-royal game. Having said that, nCore Games has already confirmed that FAU-G will be very different from PUBG and may not have a battle-royals mode at launch. What will you do when they come? We will hold our ground & fight back, because we are Fearless. United. Unstoppable FAU:G! Witness the anthem FAU:G! #FAUG #nCore_Games Pre-register now https://t.co/4TXd1F7g7J Launch 26/1@vishalgondal @akshaykumar @dayanidhimg pic.twitter.com/VGpBZ3HaOS — nCORE Games (@nCore_games) January 3, 2021 The game will instead have missions or episodes which indicates it might be more of a single-player experience at the moment. Fau-G has been marred with delays in the past, however, it seems like development has been on track for now and will launch in the coming weeks. The game is currently available for pre-registration on Google Play right now and will be available to play on Republic Day. We could expect more “episodes” to be added in the near future, however, the company has not shared a roadmap for now. View the full article
  9. There's been a lot of hype surrounding FAU-G ever since it was first announced. Today, the devs just announced the official release date of the game and it's coming out very soon. 'FAU-G: Fearless and United Guards' is officially coming out on January 26 and the same has been confirmed by nCore Games on Twitter. Here, check it out - What will you do when they come? We will hold our ground & fight back, because we are Fearless. United. Unstoppable FAU:G! Witness the anthem FAU:G! #FAUG #nCore_Games Pre-register now https://t.co/4TXd1F7g7J Launch 26/1@vishalgondal @akshaykumar @dayanidhimg pic.twitter.com/VGpBZ3HaOS — nCORE Games (@nCore_games) January 3, 2021 Along with the release date, they've also released a new game anthem which is embedded in the tweet. The game's release date comes just a couple of months after the pre-registration link went live. The game, in case you don't know, won't be coming with a Battle Royale mode upon release. Instead of that, we were told that we'll be seeing gameplay that'll be based on India's armed conflict against China at the Galwan Valley. © nCore Games It'll be interesting to see how this game will be received by the people and we can't wait to play it ourselves. The trailer looks very interesting and we think it'll be finally a new game for people to spend some time on that's other than PUBG Mobile. Speaking PUBG, a new version of PUBG Mobile is also coming back soon. As of now, we don't have a release date for it but we're expecting it to drop sooner rather than later. View the full article

  11. The wait for S Sreesanth to play domestic cricket is finally over as the former India pacer officially gets capped for the Kerala team ahead of the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament, scheduled to begin from January 10, 2021. The cricketer shared the moment of walking up to the officials of the Kerala Cricket Association surrounded by his teammates and loved ones who’re applauding the 37-year-old’s journey back to the game and his ability to stick to his passion throughout. View this post on Instagram“There is nothing stronger than a broken man ,who has rebuilt himself..” Thnks a lot for all the Supoort nd love ..#Gods grace,” Sreesanth wrote in the caption of his Instagram post. Sreesanth was banned from playing cricket at all levels that fell within the ambit of the BCCI over spot-fixing allegations in the Indian Premier League and the 2021 edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy would be the first tournament that the Kerala-born will be a part of in the past seven years. Even though his term of punishment ended back in September 2020, he was unable to get the opportunity to show his talents on the field until now as the inaugural KCA President’s Cup T20 was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

  12. My first introduction to Danish Sait’s brand of humour was rather sketchy. Five years ago, a former colleague had forwarded a voice note of a prank call on WhatsApp. I remember the clip because it was hilarious, but the fact that it was shared over a WhatsApp voice note meant I couldn’t go on a feed and scroll through more posts, unlike, say, on Instagram or Twitter. Fast forward to 2020, Danish has amassed more than 1 million followers on Instagram. The prank-calling RJ whose voice note made me crack up once has become a superstar in the digital space now. But for a social media influencer whose followers have increased five times in 2020, Danish comes across as rather sombre and extremely relatable. “Everybody around me knew what isolation and sitting idle can do to me. And to take that as a stepping stone and do something that I really enjoy doing with all the idle time has been a personal victory for me,” says Danish when I ask him about how the year has been. View this post on Instagram Caught off guard, I was expecting a conversation around humour and his viral one-minute clips that have helped us stay sane through the crazy year that 2020 has been. Instead, when one of India's biggest social media influencers chooses to expose a vulnerable side of himself that is far from the hilarious shenanigans which have become his identity, I find myself chasing a strange sense of validation for the existentialism that 2020 has inflicted upon me. “In the past I’ve run into problems dealing with my mental health. You know, you become destructive, start questioning things around you. You essentially stop creating opportunities, and you start waiting for them. And the thing with waiting for opportunities is that they don’t really rest in your hands. Predominantly I had to keep my mental health in check and keep working and not get into a spiral of 'Oh shit what is going to happen with my life, how am I going to make a living.' Luckily, I didn't have to go through all of that," he replies. View this post on Instagram But unlike many of us millennials for whom the lockdown served as the trigger to take charge of our mental healths, in Danish's case it has been chronic with episodes of depression dating back to even four years ago. When I ask him about how this lockdown was for him, Danish's response beams with positivity, "What was a revelation for me in this lockdown is that I've learnt how to control my mind, in the sense that I cannot be bogged down by situations that are not in my hands. My mind is in my control and what is in my control will remain in my control and my life can't hinge on variables. At some point, you have got to get past variables." Perhaps the chronic nature of Danish's mental health issues have helped him be in the driver's seat during the lockdown and keep churning out one viral video after another, but he is quick to acknowledge his privilege in a migrant worker-immigrating, domestic abuse increasing, abc, xyz stricken lockdown. "I'm not in this bubble where I look at my life and say oh I've worked so hard. Everybody works hard. A lot of people don't have the privilege to take stock of their own mind because they're so caught up with so many other things in life," he says. But this statement comes with an air of familiarity, which Danish quickly highlights, "And I've been in that place where I used to be on a shoestring salary, and whether I was feeling mentally up, down, didn't matter, I had to go there because I had to pay the bills, I had to survive." "And it's been that sort of conditioning for years until one day I broke down and I went to the doctor about four years ago and said, I desperately need help. Then I was given the aid and support to work my life around it and when this pandemic happened I was fortunately in a mental space and shape where I realised I could take charge of my life and do something good with it. Honestly, I did videos because I look at doing them, everything else has been a by-product of it. I didn't engineer what will happen in 2020 to myself." K: Where were you when the lockdown was imposed? Did you ever expect your content to explode like this and become this big? D: No way, no man. I woke up on one lockdown day and I was having this conversation with my friends and I just recorded one piece of it. And like a habit, I put it up on Instagram, I put it up on Twitter, put it up on Facebook and that thing went nuts. And then I just started doing a video every day and then I realized that it was like this purple patch sort of thing. Then I started doing this. It wasn't like I'm gonna wake up and do videos on Instagram. You know, because that Instagrammer life that you're talking about I’d done something like this on SoundCloud, FYI. So I've done this about five, six years ago on SoundCloud. Obviously I don't even want to compare the scale because you know, it's not about one video going not just about every other video going yeah. View this post on Instagram K: But this format is something relatively new, right? Because I remember, four years ago, a friend of mine had shared this voice note of a prank call and you were talking in that signature Bengaluru accent. Cut to the present day, your career has transitioned quite a bit since then. D: It has, but if you look at the common thread to all of this is my flair for accents, dialects, voices. I did it on audio then, I do it on video now and I just feel like it all comes with time. I didn't do it on video then because to be honest with you, I have multiple documents at home you know - presentation ideas and sketches of this one-minute content. I have been trying to crack the one-minute content for a while. I wanted to do something with this because I figured back then. I knew Instagram was the one place that I wanted to be on. You know, a lot of people who've known me for a while, when they see the recognition today they go ‘Oh, it should have happened a while ago.’ And then they say, ‘Okay, good that people have time now to kind of recognize you.’ K: I'm really, really glad it's finally paying off. I wanted to talk about the characters that you play. My favorites are Jaya and Didi. Where do you get inspiration for all these characters? I’ve read that Jaya is your domestic help... D: And Didi is my mom. Because my mom is a single parent, you know, she needed one of the adults to speak with and invariably it was my domestic help at home back then. They would have a chat about random shit, like, for example, like Didi telling Jaya, there's a new strain of Coronavirus. She doesn't need to know, I mean, she’s trying to get by every single day, right? So I grew up seeing that proximity between her and the domestic help and, you know, like the drunk husband was her husband. Unfortunately for them, most of the maids we’ve had have had drunk husbands. View this post on Instagram K: Which brings me to my next question actually. How much of a responsibility do you think content creators have towards the society? I have seen most of your one-minute videos and though they are hilarious, there is very subtle social commentary involved too. D: Look, I don't want to sit on a high moral mountain. I can tell you personally, for myself. What other content creators do is up to them and they sort of ‘construct’ their content right? I will never turn around and comment on what everybody else is doing. Having said that, I'll give you a point in case that if you look up and you don't have to write it down, but if you look at it, I have stopped putting pictures of my personal life. People follow me for the work that I do, they don't follow me for the lifestyle. I am not somebody who's here to show that I live with great panache, I have this car, that house. It’s not necessary, how does that matter. So when it comes to social commentary, I try to keep it subtle, like I did a video recently about New Year's Eve. Didi asks Jaya to keep herself free for the New Year’s as she has some guests coming over and Jaya says, ‘New Year sirf ameer logo ka kya didi?’ Now if you get it, you get it if you don’t you’re just going to laugh. I’m not gonna rub it into your face because I’m in no moral position to turn around and say I am better than you because I’m not. I am as human as you. There might be five other things that you do right that I get wrong. Does that make sense bro? K: Absolutely, adds context to our conversation about responsible content. So, what’s next for Danish Sait? D: I’m doing a regional film that I've written with a friend of mine. That goes on the floor in Feb and then IPL again, so I’ll be back into IPL and then the everyday hustle ya - wake up work, wake up work, wake up work. View this post on Instagram K: How would you remember 2020? D: I mean, it’s been quite a year man. I don't know where to start, there were so many highlights. I had a film release this year, on Amazon Prime which did really well, I got to interview my hero Sacha Baron Cohen. I have another film signed. You know, I did the IPL and so many highlights this year, but the thing is it’s all been so amplified. You know, Kanaad I’ve been doing this for 10 years, man, for 10 years. And it's amazing. Like, I'm so glad that I’m talking to somebody who hears my prank calls and goes, ‘Yeah, I’ve heard you before as well.’ You know? You know I say this always, at the end of the day even if you’re on the cover of a magazine, the responsibility is just the same ya. I said this after my first film came out and it was a hit. I said this after my second film was a hit, I still have to wake up, write a script, go to a producer and say, ‘Please produce my project.’ And prove why they should put their money on you. Honestly, I don’t want it any easier because this is what makes life exciting. The moment it becomes easy you’re like, ‘Ah man! It’s okay, I can rest on whatever I’ve done in the past.’ And I think that’s something I’ll never hang by. View the full article

  14. Ever since Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have made their relationship public, their fans have been waiting for them to tie the knot. There were strong rumours of the duo deciding to tie the knot this year-end but looks like fans will have to wait for longer. People have been continuously asking about their wedding and Alia has now broken her silence. She has spoken to Pinkvilla and declined the news of marriage anytime soon. View this post on Instagram "When will I marry? Why is everyone asking me when I'm going to get married? You know I'm only 25 years old, and I think it's too soon to get married right now," she told the website. With this revelation, fans have a final answer and they will have to wait to see their favourite couple walk down the aisle. Earlier, talking to Telegraph, Mahesh Bhatt had said, “Well, of course, they're in love. You don't need to be a genius to get that! What they do to their relationship is something they'll have to figure out. Whether it's heading towards that port called 'marriage' - which is an institution that needs to be questioned in the second decade of the 21st century - is something for them to figure out. I'm no one to hazard a guess when that would happen or which way the relationship is going. Its life and life needs to be lived on its own terms. Let's wait and see what tomorrow brings for us.” View this post on Instagram Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor will be seen together for the first time on screen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. They reportedly began dating some time at the end of 2017, when they signed Brahmastra together. View the full article
  15. OnePlus will finally launch its own smartwatch in 2021 as confirmed by CEO Pete Lau on Twitter. The company will be making a foray into wearables for the first time but there aren’t any more details available about the upcoming device. There have been rumours that the smartwatch will work on Google’s WearOS but it is still uncertain what operating system the smartwatch will use. © Youtube/Techy Imran The date for the launch of the smartwatch has not been set but there is a good chance it might launch alongside the OnePlus 9 next year. OnePlus has been experimenting with a smartwatch for years, “We had completed the design but we still decided to scrap it,” Lau said in an interview with Wall Street Journal. “We have to be focused” he added. Many of you said you wanted a watch, and as you might have heard over the weekend—we're making one, to be released early next year. Wishes do come true. https://t.co/H1Fqv9srXj — Pete Lau (@PeteLau) December 22, 2020 OnePlus has been taking baby steps and launching products beyond smartphones such as the new OnePlus TWS earphones. The company was also said to be working on a power bank but we haven’t seen any more news on that front yet. © Oppo OnePlus launching a new smartwatch isn’t that surprising as its sister company OPPO launched its own Oppo Watch earlier this year. The two companies have adopted similar strategies in the past including sharing smartphone designs since both companies are owned by the massive conglomerate BBK Electronics. It could be possible that the OnePlus watch might take some inspiration from the Oppo Watch but we will know more once it is revealed by the company next year. View the full article

  17. Fugitive self-styled godman Nithyananda has started issuing three-day visas for tourists to ‘Kailaasa’, a ‘Hindu sovereign nation’ founded by him. © Kailaasa How To Fly To Kailaasa Here's how you can fly to the country that people are so curious about. To visit the much-talked-about mysterious island nation, Kailaasa visa-holders will have to travel from Australia aboard a newly launched private chartered flight service ‘Garuda’, Nithyananda announced in one of his recent videos. Moreover, the controversial ‘godman’ urged the visitors to stay in the ‘country’ for not more than three days, during which they will be allowed one ‘Darshan’ of ‘Param Shiva’. (Planning a trip already?) “Today, you can start applying for Kailaasa visa. You have to reach Australia on your own. From Australia, Kailaasa has its own chartered flight services,” he said in a video streamed from his official Facebook page. “Please do not ask for more than a 3-day visa. Kailaasa can accommodate anyone only for three days for now,” Nithyananda said. Kailasa trip is open now. You can apply for visa. And have a Darshan of Lord Shiva physically. pic.twitter.com/ywGH2qpypi — Vishweshwar Bhat (@VishweshwarBhat) December 17, 2020Free Food & Accommodation The self-styled godman also offered visitors free food and accommodation during the course of their stay. While travellers will have to make their own arrangements to arrive in Australia, airfare to and from Kailaasa will be covered by Nithyananda’s organisation, he added. © Facebook Nithyananda, who founded a Hindu religious group called ‘Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam’, has always been surrounded with controversies. Controversy’s favourite child that he is, Nithyananda has been accused of rape and also of kidnapping and confining children in his ashram illegally. Nithyananda’s Controversy In 2019, the godman was booked after a couple from Tamil Nadu accused him of abducting their children and keeping them at his ashram in Ahmedabad. He was charged with kidnapping and wrongful confinement of children in order to make them collect donations from followers. He was also accused of abducting and torturing a 19-year-old woman. © Twitter Later that year, the Gujarat Police announced that he had escaped from the country after failing to appear in more than 50 hearings. Even as Indian authorities continued their manhunt to nab him, Nithyananda allegedly founded the ‘nation’ last year. There is much speculation about whether Kailaasa is in fact, a real nation with physical territory. What Does ‘Kailaasa’s’ Official Website Say? Its official website claims that it is a “nation without borders created by dispossessed Hindus from around the world who lost the right to practice Hinduism authentically in their own countries”. It is referred to as the “World’s Greatest Digital Hindu Nation”. It even has its own government, complete with departments of health, education, commerce, information broadcasting and even ‘enlightened civilisation’. Nithyananda is referred to as the ‘Supreme Pontiff’ of Kailasa. © Twitter In August this year, Nithyananda unveiled the new central bank and freshly minted currency of Kailaasa called ‘Kailashian dollars’. He announced he had even drafted a 300-page economic policy, which laid down his alleged nation’s economic strategy. He also claimed that his country had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with another nation to host his bank. Not only this, but the Kailaasa website also has its own Wikipedia page called Nithyanandapedia. Well, I’m off to book a three-day stay to a place where no one can find me. BRB! What about you?

  18. Sony's PlayStation 5 availability has just been a blurry line in India. Nobody knows what's happening behind the scenes but we still have no official word about the console's availability in the country while people have already grabbed it in many international markets. But a new report from the folks over at The Mako Reactor says that Sony might start taking pre-orders for the PS5 by the end of this month and the console may eventually start shipping by mid-January. This is great news for everyone who's been waiting to get their hands on the new console, even though it's not coming from official sources. © Twitter/@vjeranpavic The report mentions that Sony Centers across many places in India are expecting to take pre-orders for the PS5 by the end of December. The first stock is expected to hit the shelves by January. The information comes from Sony centers in Delhi, Raipur, Goa, and Bengaluru, the report says. In fact, some of these stores have also started taking pre-order payments, which means an official announcement is imminent. That being said, it looks like the initial stocks of the PS5 will be limited to metro cities only. So if you are planning to get your hands on the console, then we suggest you keep your eyes peeled for the pre-orders online. © Twitter/@vjeranpavic The report further notes that the PS5 Digital Edition will be significantly harder to get your hands on due to the very limited stock. We suggest you wait for any official word on the pre-orders before you drop money on the console. We also suggest you not to splurge on the console by paying an exorbitant amount of money to unauthorized retailers. We'll be keeping an eye on the official channels to update you with more info.

  19. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Monday, finally broke his silence on the ongoing protests in Delhi, which is apparently being seen as one of the largest protests in history. Farmers have been protesting against the new farm laws for months, and even took the protest to the capital with the Chalo Dilli protest. © Reuters All this time, people have been asking PM Modi to address the farmers and make a statement about the protest that is currently going on and the day has finally come. At an event at Kutch in Gujarat, he accused the Opposition of “misleading farmers” and “shooting from their shoulders” to attack the government. He said, "A conspiracy is going on around Delhi to confuse farmers. They are being scared that after the new Agri reforms the land of farmers will be occupied by others. Tell me, if a dairy has a contract of collecting milk from you, do they take away your cattle too?" A conspiracy is going on around Delhi to confuse farmers.

Tell me, if a dairy has a contract of collecting milk from you, do they take away your cattle too?: PM in Kutch, Gujarat pic.twitter.com/OiogOzi0GA — ANI (@ANI) December 15, 2020 It's safe to say people seem to be rather unhappy with PM Modi's statement and are showing their dissatisfaction on Twitter. Conspiracy? Old tactics of BJP to call protest, a conspiracy. Farmers of Rajasthan, Haryana, Punjab are protesting to save their land and for written assurance on MSP. PM, HM said in many rallies -MSP increased 1.5 times Why Govt is not ready to write??https://t.co/0oHUY2lsQf — 𝑆 𝐾 𝑃𝑎𝑐ℎ𝑎𝑢𝑟𝑖🤚🏽 (@skpachauri11) December 15, 2020 Yes, actually talking to the farmers might help.

Why are you being afraid to come forward and have a chat with farmers? First your Govt told there are no flaws, after that agreed to amendments? What was that?

  20. A new leak from Apple’s supply chain indicates that the next iPhone may get features that fans have been wanting for a while now which have been present on Android devices for years. Next year’s flagship iPhone might finally come with an always-on display and a report suggests it may even enable the ProMotion display feature for iPhones. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Reports point to LG offering a type of display panel for iPhones that are already being used in the Apple Watch Series 5. These screens are called LTPO panels that might be used for Pro models of the next iPhone. These panels will not only let Apple use the always-on feature but also let Apple increase the refresh rate of the display. The report says, “LG Display will expand the production rate of its organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel factory lines dedicated to Apple, TheElec has learned […] LG Display is planning to put in low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LPTO) thin-film transistors (TFT) equipment […] Apple is planning to apply LTPO TFT to higher-tier iPhone models launching next year. It has used the low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) TFT process so far. An oxide TFT process will be added to become LPTO TFT.” These LTPO panels allow variable refresh rates which means the next iPhones may able be to have an extremely low rate to conserve battery. At the same time have the ability to increase the refresh rate for a smoother experience. The Apple Watch Series 5 already has always-on enabled which means a similar function could be applied to the iPhone as well. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla A second report by TheElec suggests the refresh rate of the next iPhone could be boosted to 120Hz for smoother graphics in games and ultra-responsiveness. “Next year’s OLED panel used for iPhone 13 will be more technologically sophisticated to make, compared to those used in iPhone 12. Two out of the four models launching next year will use low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistors (TFT). LTPO technology is needed for the screens to reach 120Hz refresh rate. All four models will use on-cell touch screens as well,” the report said. Apple already uses a 120Hz display in the form of ProMotion on the iPad Pro and it would be interesting to see how it works on the next iPhone. The iPad Pro automatically adjusts the refresh rate on the ProMotion display according to what is being done on the screen. A similar method is used by Samsung for its latest Galaxy smartphones as well. Source: TheElec View the full article
