  1. Imagine being able to say it out loud: “I am the only person to skate in Antarctica and have my name in a record book to prove it.” Well, Lakshmi Sona Singh can actually do it. Getting her name registered in India's prestigious Limca Book of Records (2019), the 35-year-old London based amateur skater put on her roller blades, stepped onto the Paradise Harbour, Antarctica and glided her way into becoming the first (and only) person to do so, on 16 December 2017. Credit: Lakshmi Sona Singh Working as a Sales Manager in a UK-based telecom services company, Lakshmi had been a great skating enthusiast ever since her childhood days in Surat, Gurjarat, where her parents introduced her to a set of wheels when she was six. However, much like the most of us, education, a good job and the ever-so-heavy burden of settling down became her priorities with her love for skating got buried deep within her heart. But as they say, “passion never dies.” Nearly three decades later, Lakshmi decided to turn her dreams of skating among the pristine surroundings of Antarctica, into reality. “I just decided to pack a bag and grab my skates,” she told us. Credit: Lakshmi Sona Singh Sure, her journey to Antarctica was not that easy. Saving up for this single trip for years, Lakshmi faced some criticism from her parents and her brother, who thought it was impossible and absolutely crazy for her to continue to work towards this goal of hers. But when she finally booked her tickets and fervourly called her parents at 3 in the morning to break the news, they had to give in to her unshaken commitment. “I was confident about finishing my journey. There was so much excitement that there was no room for nervousness, although I did get a lot of strange looks from the people who were around me on the ship when they saw my roller blades,” she said jokingly. Credit: Lakshmi Sona Singh She also had to let go of one of her clothing baggage as the weight of the roller blades itself was too much to carry, but Lakshmi was on a mission and it was a very small price to pay. Now that this endeavour of hers has come to a successful end, Lakshmi is determined to skate at the North Pole next and eventually on every other continent, with the hopes of making another record of skating on all seven continents. We wish her the best of luck!
  2. While PUBG Mobile has been on the center of all the spotlight, there's new battle royale title in town. That's right. Activision's 'Call of Duty: Mobile' title is now going live for some Android users in beta before the final release. We already spent some time with the game and we think it's better than 'PUBG Mobile'. You can read all about it here. That said, it's worth pointing out that the Call of Duty: Mobile's battle royale mode is a little different. It's more of a tactical shootout, which might take some time getting used to. Here are some tips and tricks that can help you get started and win your first game: 1) Choose The Right Class If you know anything about Call of Duty Mobile, then you're probably already aware of the fact that the game different classes to choose from. Depending on the one you choose, you'll get different abilities and Class skill during the game. It's a crucial part of the game and it's important that you pick the right one that suits your play style. Here's a quick look at each class and the perks that they offer - © Call Of Duty Mobile • Scout As a Scout player, you'll get to utilize 'Sensor Darts' that can view hostile positions in the immediate area of the radar map. Additionally, you also get tracker ability that allows you to see fresh footprints of hostiles. • Clown Clown players can distract with a toy bomb that detonates and summons zombies that only attack hostiles near you. You also get the anti-zombie ability, which reduces the aggression distance of opponents' zombies. • Mechanic You can call an EMP Drone to create electromagnetic interference on hostile forces. You also get the Engineer ability that grants augmented sight to vehicles, hostile traps, and other equipment. • Medic Just like the Apex Legends' 'Llifeline' Legend, you'll be able to setup medic stations to continuously heal your allies in the immediate vicinity. You also get the Master Medic ability that'll help you heal more quickly and reduce the time it usually takes to revive teammates. • Ninja Lastly, there are the Ninja class players who will get a Grapple Gun that fires a hook, allowing them to propel up and onto buildings across the landscape. You also get the Dead Silence ability, that'll allow you to move quietly. 2) Use Vehicles To Get Around © Call of Duty Mobile As is the case with any other battle royale game, Call of Duty also puts you in a huge map. So, obviously, traversing through the map on foot will take a lot of times and there are a ton of vehicles that are worth checking out. Our recommendation would be to man a helicopter with your squad and just rain down fire from above. It's one of the best ways to spot enemies and kill them from above without getting into close combat. You can also rafts to get through the water bodies, but just stay clear of the snipers. They can take you off with just one shot! 3) Keep An Eye On The Supply Drops & Beacons © Call of Duty Mobile If you've played PUBG, then you already know how important Supply Drops are. They can valuable upgrade items that'll help you get an advantage in the game. Call of Duty Mobile also has beacons that mark the location of Class Upgrade items. These items will augment your particular set of skills that exclusive to each class. You might want to be a little cautious while approaching the supply drops because your enemies will also be swarming in to grab the goods. 4) Best Loot Location In The Map © Call Of Duty Mobile You know what's better than waiting for a supply drop for better gears? Drop in an area of the map which has the best loot in the game to get an edge over your enemies. Not all the areas in the map are good looting spots. Some places have enough to get you through the game, whereas some will leave empty-handed. Here are some of the best locations in Call of Duty Mobile where you can get some really good loot - • Sakura • Killhouse • Launch • Nuclear Plant • Shipment • Nuketown
  3. Nawazuddin Siddiqui has time and again proved that he is a stellar actor. This time, his brother Shamas, who is also his manager, is trying his hand at direction and Nawaz is playing the lead role in his directorial debut, 'Bole Chudiyan'. Mouni Roy has been paired opposite Nawaz in the film. The makers have now released the first looks of the characters. Nawaz will be seen playing the role of Mouni's passionate lover. It's an unusual pairing indeed and it will be interesting to see how they create a spark on the big screen. In one of the posters, Nawaz can be seen standing against the wall and it seems like he is in deep thought, pondering over something, and Mouni is seen peeping from behind a door and has an intense expression on her face. Mouni, in a short span of time, has conquered Bollywood. Nawaz had earlier tweeted that he would be sharing the screen space with her. “I am really excited to work with the very beautiful and talented @roymouni Hope to spread some fragrance of romance on screen #BoleChudiyan@woodpeckermovi1 @ShamasSiddiqui @zaverikiran9 #RajeshBhatia.” The film goes on floors in June. Check out the look posters here: © Woodpecker Movies © Woodpecker Movies In an interview with Bombay Times, Mouni said that she is excited to work with Nawazuddin, adding that he is immensely talented and she feels that doing a film with him would be a great learning process for her. On the other hand, Nawaz had said that Mouni has untapped potential and that she is open to experimenting with her roles, which is why she is a perfect fit for the character. Nawaz will be also seen in 'Sacred Games 2' while Mouni has 'Brahmastra' in her kitty. Are you excited to see the two of them together on the big screen?
  4. Xiaomi's Redmi phones have been a huge hit for the company. So much so that 'Redmi' is now a separate sub-brand. So far the Redmi has been limited to the budget segment, but the company is about to change that with its upcoming flagship device - the Redmi K20. The Redmi K20, in case you don't know, is a flagship phone, and Xiaomi officials have been calling it the 'flagship killer 2.0'. We still have to wait for it to launch officially to see if it's really a flagship killer, but we do know quite a bit about the phone already, including a picture of it. Rumored Specs That We Know So Far The Redmi K20 has been confirmed to sport Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC, which means the phone will enjoy its space as a flagship phone alongside the Mi 9. As a flagship phone, it's safe to say that it'll carry a minimum of 6GB of RAM, although you can also expect an 8GB RAM variant. © Weibo As for the optics, the Redmi K20 will feature triple cameras on the back. You can clearly see all the three cameras in the render. Here', take a look. © Twitter Furthermore, the primary sensor of the phone is said to be a Sony IMX586 with 48MP resolution. It's the same sensor that's being used by OnePlus for the OnePlus 7 Pro phone, and we're quite optimistic about the picture quality. As of now, there's no info about the other two sensors, so we'll wait for more rate than speculating. And if you're a sucker for slo-mo videos then make a note that the Redmi K20 will also support 960fps slo-mo videos. A few other things we know about the phone is that it'll have a Notchless display, it'll have a pop-up camera and there'll be an in-display fingerprint scanner. Redmi K20 Launching in India Soon Here's the best part - The Redmi K20 is said to be coming to India very soon. The same has been confirmed by Xiaomi India's head Manu Kumar Jain. Most amazing & awaited flagship device launch of the year - #Flagship #Killer 2.0! ð I am in China to attend the launch event next week - on 28th May. Only one week to go! ð Mi Fans! Can not wait to show this incredible device to all of you guys.. ð#Xiaomi â¤ï¸ #Redmi pic.twitter.com/eFTRf7P9xF — Manu Kumar Jain (@manukumarjain) May 22, 2019 Well, we don't have an official date for the phone's arrival in India, but we think it'll happen as early as next month.
  5. If you put three people like Quentin Tarantino, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt together, you know you're going to get a damn good movie that will make everyone excited. And that was exactly the case since the time 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' was announced, and the first look of the upcoming movie was out. View this post on Instagram First look. #OnceUponATimeInHollywood A post shared by Leonardo DiCaprio (@leonardodicaprio) on Jun 27, 2018 at 6:00am PDT I remember how everyone went crazy over this picture a few months ago, and then the trailers just built up the anticipation even more. Quentin Tarantino's ninth film was recently screened at the Cannes Film Festival and has left all the lucky people who watched it, quite impressed. Some are even putting it up there with the classic 'Pulp Fiction'. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD: Tarantino wasn't joking when he said this was the closest to PULP FICTION that he has come. He juggles a mosaic of characters and story-lines in this one, eventually stringing them together for a relentlessly playful and touching finale. #Cannes2019 — Jordan Ruimy @ Cannes (@mrRuimy) May 21, 2019 Who would've thunk? #OnceUponATimeInHollywood turns out to be Tarantino's most tender film. Who'd have thunk. #cannes2019 — Magdalena Miedl reicht's. (@mmiedl) May 21, 2019 Then, that's a good thing. I'm thinking #OnceUponATimeinHollywood is going to divide critics. Heck, I'm divided, and I'm just one critic. But I think the side of me that enjoyed it is going to win out. #Cannes2019 — Chris Knight (@ChrisKnightfilm) May 21, 2019 Sounds great. #OnceUponATimeInHollywood is a beautiful, brash rumination on the grime and beauty of Hollywood. It is a dirty, sensually realized feat, with many, many shots of dirty, sensualized feet.#QuentinTarantino #Cannes2019 — Jason Gorber - at #Cannes2019 (@filmfest_ca) May 21, 2019 It'll be interesting to watch. DiCaprio is pretty great, but Pitt is amazing. Not sure about the 'message' - if there is one - and definitely not the most quotable Tarantino. — Steven Tuffin (@Waanzinema) May 21, 2019 That sucks. It's a lot to get into but Tarantino has made his most specific, realistic and gentle film in #OnceUponATimeInHollywood. Really liked it, though there's a lot to get into with regard to its lack of female characters, Robbie has a surprisingly small role. #Cannes2019 — Andy Hazel (@AndyRickie) May 21, 2019 He looks so good here! #OnceUponATimeInHollywood: Quentin Tarantino wants to tell us a story about Hollywood life at the time of the Manson Family slayings of '69, and man, does he ever, going from awestruck to WTF. Brad Pitt the standout, his coolest role yet. #Cannes2019 pic.twitter.com/WgJywDPW9i — Peter Howell (@peterhowellfilm) May 21, 2019 Can't wait to watch, tbh. I laughed. I gasped. I wondered: What would Roman Polanski think? I begrudgingly agreed not to tweet out spoilers. Tarantino delivers an ode to Hollywood's lost innocence, while cheekily suggesting it never had any to begin with. #OnceUponATimeinHollywood #Cannes2019 pic.twitter.com/DBgriD2Ihb — Chris Knight (@ChrisKnightfilm) May 21, 2019 Brad Pitt is getting a lot of love. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD is more languorous and luminous than anything Tarantino has done before. Radiant w/ affection for Los Angeles and the movies. Ambles and drags but pleasantly so. Pitt & DiCaprio are fabulous, Pitt especially. I could watch them drive around LA a lot. — Jake Coyle (@jakecoyleAP) May 21, 2019 And, so is Leo. #OnceUponATimeInHollywood is an odd one for Tarantino, but in a very good way. A pure love letter to cinema and the 1960s, with a career-best DiCaprio performance. #Cannes2019 — Max Borg (@IMDBorg) May 21, 2019
  6. Everyone loves Keanu Reeves, the guy is just so amazing, and everyone loves him as John Wick ever since he took on the role in 2014 and avenged his dog. Now, the third movie in the franchise - 'John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum' - is almost here, but some people have already watched it and it's no surprise that people are loving the movie. Ever since the first promo picture came out - Keanu Reeves with Halle Berry in a desert with two dogs - people have been so excited for the movie. And, concerned about the dogs, of course. Welcome to the next chapter. #JohnWick3 pic.twitter.com/qtvXepVEvw — John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (@JohnWickMovie) December 19, 2018 People are also calling it the best movie in the franchise so far, and well, nothing builds the excitement more than that. #JohnWick3 is an absolute blast and the best film of the @JohnWickMovie franchise so far REVIEW: https://t.co/2fHZlkcn1Q pic.twitter.com/ZI8oocVzUn — UPROXX (@UPROXX) May 10, 2019 Some people disagree. On JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3, which I think is a notch below the other two movies, but still a lot of fun. https://t.co/gXbqz1ugtL — Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (@vishnevetsky) May 10, 2019 Well. JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 is pretty fucking badass. Maybe the most violent studio movie since HOSTEL: PART II. The Boban fight scene RULES & I don't even know if that was one of the top 3 sequences. Loved Mark Dacascos, but everyone is good -- Halle, McShane, Lance, Fishburne, Huston. — Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) May 10, 2019 Now, that's cool. Migos finally have their track “John Wick” featured on John Wick Chapter 3 pic.twitter.com/KxwHMsWSlT — MIGOS ð (@CultureTheAlbum) May 7, 2019 'Veheeery' good movie, apparently. OKAY. @VAMNit & I went to the premiere of John Wick 3 last night (or John 3 Wick, if you're the sign behind us) It is veheeeery good. We loved it. No spoilers, but ask me anything about the night, go pic.twitter.com/4LPvfeUaAV — Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) May 10, 2019 Yep. Within the first five minutes of CHAPTER 3, John Wick visits the Rose Main Reading Room of the Fifth Avenue New York Public Library, seven out of four stars, best film of the franchise — Jason Bailey (@jasondashbailey) May 10, 2019 Freaking awesome, guys! How is John Wick Chapter 3?! FREAKING AWESOME! Seriously GO SEE THIS! I didnt think they could top the last two in terms of action, but they DO! One scene in particular worth price of admission alone! Our NON-SPOILER Review! https://t.co/EQbxFdi8gg RT & Share Plz! pic.twitter.com/V9qxHVTtIL — Joe Vargas (@AngryJoeShow) May 10, 2019 Unrelated, but that little clip is everything. Keanu Reeves during the break of John Wick 3 filming July 2018 pic.twitter.com/XPsCh4KLNk — Keanu Reeves หà¸à¸¹à¸£à¸±à¸à¹à¸à¹à¸² ⤠(@keanureevesmore) May 11, 2019 Can't wait to watch. john wick is the best action movie franchise we've gotten in 20 years — part 3 is truly incredible https://t.co/EolhkZ2s0x — Shea Serrano (@SheaSerrano) May 11, 2019 Okay then. ð¶ JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 — PARABELLUM has a terrific beginning, a boring middle, and a great end. give mark dacascos his own spinoff, please! also, more with laurence fishburne and his birds! also (x2), more jason mantzoukas! ð¶ https://t.co/IjfK93Rq41 — karen han (@karenyhan) May 10, 2019 Okay, some mixed reviews. I enjoyed John Wick 3 just fine--it's more John Wick--but I have to say I'm absolutely shocked that the RT rating is so overwhelmingly high. This movie DEFINITELY has more problems than a lot of critics are pointing out imo — Mike Rougeau (@RogueCheddar) May 11, 2019 That's good. John Wick 3 takes a page (and some actors) from The Raid in its relentless action and hard-hitting choreography. There's some plot wheel spinning that kept it from being perfect, but I just love this world and enjoy spending time in it. — Eric Vespe (@EricVespe) May 11, 2019 That's the tweet. #JohnWick Chapter 3 is the best movie ever. That's it, that's the whole tweet. — Brandon Katz (@Great_Katzby) May 10, 2019 Finally, please. I saw that they're handing out trading cards for Detective Pikachu. I hope for John Wick 3 they hand out guns. — Clipper Of Wings (@Exfatvirgin) May 11, 2019
  7. According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple has started to finalise locations for its first retail store that is set to open in India soon. The report said that the company has 'redoubled its efforts' in India to open its first store in an upscale location. © Pexels The first location is said to be in Mumbai and will probably be at a site similar to iconic locations such as Orchard Street in Singapore, Regent Street in London and Gift Avenue in New York. Currently, Apple sells its products via authorised partners only, as the company did not meet local manufacturing and sourcing requirements. Apple has now increased manufacturing in India and is currently in talks with the Government for a retail store, the report says. Wistron's factory application for a new $1 billion factory in India was recently approved by the country's IT ministry, which means Apple will soon have an additional manufacturing unit here in India. The new factory will be manufacturing Apple's iPhone 8, in addition to the iPhone SE, 6S, and AirPods. Additionally, the Foxconn project is also in progress, which could be commissioned to assemble the rest of the iPhone line-up including the new iPhone XS, XS Max and XR © Pexels “India is a very important market in the long term,” Cook said after the company's earnings report last week. “It's a challenging market in the short term, but we're learning a lot. We plan on going in there with sort of all of our might.” Last month, Apple slashed prices for the iPhone XR and offered a price cut of Rs 17,000. The price cut resulted in good sale numbers for Apple's latest smartphone and it seems like Apple is gearing up for a far more competitive strategy. Source: Bloomberg
  8. Yes, the games are about to begin and I am certainly not talking about 'Game of Thrones'. The Games have defintiely begun there but I am talking about our very own 'Sacred Games'. Netflix just released the first look of season 2 we can't keep calm really. The most anticipated web series is back with a bang in a few months and we have a lot to look forward to, especially new characters who'll be joining the show. © Netflix While season 1 saw the departure of many of our favourites, Season 2 will witness Kalki Koechlin as Batya, and Ranvir Shorey as Shahid Khan, joining the Games in prominent roles. The brand new season promises a new trail of friendship, betrayal, crime, passion, and a thrilling chase through Mumbai's underbelly with these new characters. The second season picks up with Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) pursuing his relentless quest to save the city, and Ganesh Gaitonde (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) facing bigger challenges to retain his position as the legendary kingpin of Mumbai. The intriguing Guruji (Pankaj Tripathi), introduced in Season 1 as Gaitonde's 'third father', plays a pivotal role in unfolding a chain of events that shape the season. © Netflix Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap has directed Ganesh Gaitonde's track, while Neeraj Ghaywan (of Masaan fame) is the main man behind Sartaj Singh's plot for Season 2. Vikramaditya Motwane and Varun Grover continue their roles of being the showrunner and the lead writer, respectively. Kalki Koechlin, who plays the role of Batya, said on joining the show, “Personally, I am a fan of the series, and it is super awesome to be a part of the Sacred Games and Netflix family. Season 2 promises to be much more exciting and I cannot wait for viewers to watch me in the series.” she tells Netflix. © Netflix Ranvir Shorey, who plays the role of Shahid Khan, said, “The digital platform is so empowering and working on this audience-favourite show has been an absolute delight! My character in Sacred Games 2, Shahid Khan, is a complete departure from any of the roles I've played before, and I'm looking forward to fans across the world bingeing on the new season.'' he tells Netflix. Based on Vikram Chandra's award-winning book, 'Sacred Games' Season 2 will premiere on Netflix later this year. Watch the teaser here:
  9. First dates are complicated beyond doubt and those of us who've been in that awkward situation, know what I mean. There are many loose ends you try and tighten with your mind going on overdrive but sometimes, even they fail to enunciate what you actually need to do. Sometimes, prominent signs to know if your first date went well are very important and they can only be delivered if you pay heed to them. © Pinterest We're always waiting for a call or a text, wondering if we've been ghosted, always thinking if she liked the place you suggested, if she liked you vibe or is she just going to move ahead and never see you again. A lot of queries end up playing Tetris inside your head and I understand it's frustrating. So, in order to make it easier for you to judge whether or not your first date went well, I am going to give you a few ways to determine the apt signs that'll let you know the same: (1) The Initial Reaction Is Important What was it like when you first met her? If you're meeting her through a dating app, then you're probably meeting her for the first time ever. So, you have to remember what look she wore on her face. Was she nervous? was she confident? was she smiling through and through or did she seem like she wasn't interested at all? This is important because this tells you whether or not there's any scope to build chemistry between the two of you. What was your reaction upon seeing her? Sometimes reactions can be similar. But we won't base it on the first time you saw each other. We will base it more on how the evening went after. But the initial reaction you get from your date has a lot to say about her actions later. © Pinterest (2) The Number Of Hours Spent Together Are Important This is an important aspect. If you're spending time with someone and if they're bored or don't like you, they will make an excuse and leave. It's very common. They may just be there for a drink to not be rude and leave right after. But if she's thoroughly enjoying your company then chances are you both will end up spending hours together and have a good time as well. This marker can at least assure you that you didn't mess up anything for her to not get back in touch with you again. © Pinterest (3) Was There Enough Laughter? Laughter is the universal sign for fun and happiness and if there was adequate laughter from her and you, it means the date went well. Obviously, she can't pretend to laugh for hours. She will give up some time! If her laughter seemed genuine and she seemed happy and talkative, take that as a positive sign! © Pinterest (4) Body Language Is Important You probably didn't pay attention much but let me tell you body language is important to study. It tells you a lot about how interested a person is in you. If she was slouching throughout, had her arms crossed and her body always distant and facing the other way while she was with you, it probably meant she was disinterested or wasn't enjoying herself. If a woman is made to feel comfortable, in time, she opens up and it's fairly evident. If she kept stroking your arm, or put her arms around you or her body was very much in tune with yours throughout, be damn sure she definitely loved your company. © Pinterest (5) The Ending Is Important How did the date eventually end? Was it absolutely abrupt where she just said bye and headed home? or did it end with a nice conversation or a kiss to seal the deal? A kiss usually seals the deal most times. It's a sure-shot sign that both people want to take this to another level altogether. It also means she loved your company for the night and there's no better way to express that than a heartfelt kiss. Think about the kiss. Was it a peck? Or a full-blown smooch? or was it just a touch-and-go? If it was a peck, maybe she was just being polite. But if it was anything other than that, you've got her attention and probably a second date too! © Pinterest Siddhant Roop Rai (mc_soopy) Naina Bhan ( @nainabee) Location : Andaz Hotel (@andazdelhi) Photographer : Anand Gogoi ( @anand.gogoi) Stylist : Devanshi Tuli (@devanshi.15) Makeup and Hair : Shrishti Anand ( @srishtianandmakeup ) Production : Prapti Elizabeth (@prapti.elizabeth) It's not rocket science really. If you are looking forward to going on your second date, these signs will help you analyse how the first one went. Most times, you have to follow up but she will leave you enough hints on asking her out again. If you're going on a first date, these signs will come in handy, in case you look forward to another one with the same person.

  10. OnePlus is all set to unveil its new OnePlus 7 smartphone along with a more premium model, the OnePlus 7 Pro, on May 14. While we are still a couple of weeks away from the launch, the first camera samples from the OnePlus 7 Pro are already out. The folks over at WIRED went hands-on with the phone and shared their experience. The first piece of information to note here is that the OnePlus 7 Pro will be capable of 3x optical zoom functionality. Since optical zoom is a hardware-based zoom solution, you can expect to retain the details even when you're zooming in on the image. Bells and whistles make noise. We make phones. #OnePlus7Prohttps://t.co/ViZaz53XXk pic.twitter.com/wIHg7fd7U4 — OnePlus (@oneplus) April 25, 2019 Optical zoom capability isn't something that we've unheard of. In fact, we already have smartphones like the Huawei P30 Pro that touts 5x and even 10x optical zoom. That being said, it'll be interesting to see what OnePlus has managed to pull off here with the OnePlus 7 Pro. Before we take a look at the camera samples shared online, here's a quick look at some other noteworthy features of the OnePlus 7 Pro's camera - 0.3 seconds or less shutter lag 10x digital zoom support Auto HDR enabled by default “Natural” portrait mode Anyway, here are the camera samples - While speaking to WIRED, OnePlus imaging director Simon Liu said the OnePlus 7 Pro has a shot at competing with the first tier phones. “I don't think we can beat them, but the imaging world is always subjective”, said Liu.
  11. One of the first lessons most elementary schools try to imbibe in young minds reads something like, “a simple act of kindness goes a long way”. That is probably what we were also taught back in the day, but while many forget these precious lessons after writing those answers for the moral science paper, there is a young boy who became an overnight sensation for not only keeping this lesson close to his heart, but also applying it when it was most needed. Earlier this month, a 6-year-old boy named Derek C Lalchhanhima from Sairang in Mizoram went viral for inspiring the young and old through a simple act of kindness. Derek had accidentally run over his neighbour's chicken while cycling, and then rushed it to the nearest hospital with all the money he had (Rs. 10) to save it's life! People hailed his kindness and soon Derek turned into a school hero after he was rewarded by School St. Pio with a 'Word of Appreciation' award for his thoughtful gesture. But that's not all. More appreciation and awards have poured in for Derek who has now been declared as a 'Compassionate Kid' by animal rights organisation, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Underscoring the importance of furthering emotions of empathy and kindness towards animals in young children, PETA made a statement on this honour conferred on Derek and said, “Developing empathy for animals is a key step towards developing empathy for – and rejecting violence against – all beings, including humans. It's important, therefore, that students learn at an early age that the animals with whom we share this planet are, in many ways, not so different from us.” Look at Derek with his PETA award: © Twitter It is great to see the encouragement and appreciation that Derek has received for his sweet act. It will not only further motivate him to keep moving in this path, but also inspired many young minds like Derek to follow in the same footsteps.
  12. For the first time in the history of the Indian Army, women will now be welcomed in an absolutely new role. The Indian Army recently issued an advertisement in the newspaper for recruiting women soldiers in the military police and this is a big step ahead for womankind in India. Three months ago, the government announced that women will be inducted in the force in the 'Personnel Below Officer Rank' (PBOR) category. The registrations online have already begun for inducted women as jawans in the corps of military police. This is certainly being seen as a breakthrough in the force as in simple terms, women were earlier only inducted as officers and now they'll be inducted as soldiers! © ANI According to the given advertisement, the application window for recruitment for soldier general duty will close on June 8th and we hope a number of applicants apply in the next one month. For the first time, Indian Army to start online registration of women for recruitment as soldiers into the military police, today. The project was mooted by General Bipin Rawat soon after taking over as Army Chief and given final approval by the Defence Ministry recently. pic.twitter.com/nIssIN62zX — ANI (@ANI) 25 April 2019 The project was first mooted by Bipin Rawat, the Army Chief General as soon as he took charge of the force. While the process follows a stringent protocol, the decks for induction were cleared in January 2019 after Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharam announced that the government has taken a historic decision to induct women in the military police and their roles would include investigating crime cases of rape and molestation and assisting the Army in field operations whenever required. Last year, Rawat had said that the process to allow women in combat was moving steadfastly and accordingly the Army chalked out induction of approximately 800 women in the military police. © ANI Currently, women in the Army are allowed in areas such as medical, educational, legal and engineering wings. The main role of women in military police will be to take charge of logistics during peace and war, handling prisoners of war and maintaining movements of soldiers. The Corps of Military Police is responsible for preserving "good order and discipline and to prevent breaches of the same by persons serving in or attached to the regular Army", the Army says on its website. © Better India This is a really empowering step for womankind in the country, as it works on the fabric of equality between the sexes and we're nothing short of grateful it has finally been incorporated!
  13. Quite a few sparks flew when an infamous Yogi used the phrase “green virus” for a section of our community. Instead of seeking to draw strength from the diversity our country shares, we are now caught up in a strange kind of murky politics in India. However, Japan does have some good news to share because another 'Yogi' in the country is showing us how to win people's heart and become their representative in the truest sense. A 41-year-old Indian-origin Japanese man has just become the first Indian to win an election in the country. © Twitter Named Puranik Yogendra, he goes by the nickname 'Yogi' and has been elected to Tokyo's Edogawa Ward assembly after securing the fifth highest vote count in the 21st April polls. Edogawa Ward houses the highest number of Indians in Tokyo, which is almost 10 percent of Japan's total Indian occupancy, which is over 34,000! Apart from Indians, Edogawa Ward is also home to a large number of Chinese and Koreans. © Twitter What makes Yogi, a Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan member, so special is his mission, “I want to be a bridge between Japanese and foreigners," Yogi told the media. Yogendra first visited Japan in 1997 as a university student in India. Two years later he was back in the country to study, and finally in 2001 Yogi arrived in Japan to work as an engineer. Reportedly, he has been living in Edogawa Ward since 2005. © Twitter After receiving Japanese citizenship, Yogi began pursuing a career in politics. "I want to be an assemblyman who can connect everyone regardless of nationality, age, or even disabilities, through my 20 years of living in Japan," Yogi said. We hope Yogis at home take some inspiration from this man.
  14. A very faint seismic signal was tracked and recorded by the Insight lander on April 6th as the trembling appears to have come from inside the planet. The recording could have been caught by forces above the surface, such as wind, but now it has been confirmed that it was a legit earthquake. © NASA Scientists are still examining the data to know more about the seismic signal and its origins. The signal was detected by the lander's Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) instrument. Three very distinct sounds could be heard and all of them were detected as ground vibrations. © NASA InSight heard the “marsquake” using an instrument that contains three ultra sensitive seismometers installed inside a dome. This dome protects the seismometers from external forces like the wind. “We've been waiting months for a signal like this,” said French seismologist Philippe Lognonné. “It's so exciting to finally have proof that Mars is still seismically active.” InSight's two-year mission will continue and there's a good chance that larger quakes will be discovered. “We're starting to have many small quakes,” he said. By the end of the mission, he told Science Magazine, “we'll have a super big quake.” NASA had previously installed seismometers that measured numerous quakes on the moon in 1969 and 1977. While this may not be the first time mankind has detected quakes away from Earth, it is, however, a first to be measured on a distant planet.
  15. Honestly, finding and booking tickets for 'Avengers: Endgame' was a pain these past few days and one of the most stressful things I have ever done. There are literally no shows left where you can find a decent seat, and if they're not sold out, you'll have to make the hard choice between the well-being of your neck and back or watching the movie first day, first show. I mean, obviously, it's full everywhere, as the movie literally has already sold 1 million advance tickets, making a record. But, there just might be some good news for those poor souls who still haven't managed to get their hands on the most coveted ticket for this weekend. For probably the first time in India, movie theatres across the country will reportedly remain open 24x7 to screen 'Avengers: Endgame' because any Marvel fan would rather watch the movie at 3 am this weekend than wait till Monday or Tuesday. One little drawback though, the makers are planning to have these shows only in A-tier cities and mostly in IMAX and 4DX versions, which we all know are the more expensive options. But, I'm still 100 per cent sure that these will be sold out as well, since we're in the 'Endgame' now and there's no way anyone is delaying watching this.
  16. You have to be the filthy kind of rich to be able to gift your buddy a customised 'Captain America' themed 1967 Camaro that would make your wallet slimmer by Rs. 2 crores and still not scratch the surface of your bank account. And if your name is Robert Downey Jr and you have the charisma to handsomely pull off a gold and iron red coloured suit made up of tin, then you most definitely will have no problems establishing such a bank account for yourself. As the first piece of the elaborate puzzle the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become in the current day, RDJ was given what can be considered a complex and complicated yet extremely difficult task as an actor and that was to make the audience like Iron Man enough to build a complete universe in the coming years and hopefully decades. And as they say, “with great responsibility comes a lot of money!” Well, not exactly. When Downey was first bolted into the Iron Man suit, his deal was worth $500,000, which even though was still a lot of money, especially for an experiment like Iron Man, was nowhere near the kind of dough the 54-year-old would make in the coming years. A new clause was then added to his contract stating that Downey's take-home will also include a 2.5% share of all profits made by the movies. Iron Man (2008): $500,000 = Rs. 3,50,00,000 (approx.) Iron Man 2 (2010): $10 million + $3 million (film profits) = $13 million = Rs. 90,53,00,000 (approx) Avengers (2012): $10 million + $29 million (film profits) = $39 million = Rs. 2,72,00,00,000 (approx) Iron Man 3 (2013): $10 million + $22 million (film profit) = $32 million = Rs. 2,23,00,00,000 (approx.) Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015): $10 million + $25 million (film profit) = $35 million = Rs. 2,44,00,00,000 (approx.) Captain America: Civil War (2016): $40 million + $18.75 million in film profit + $5 million for beating Winter Soldier = $63.75 million = Rs. 4,45,69,60,000 (approx.) Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017): $ 15 million = Rs. 1,04,00,00,000 (approx.) Avengers: Infinity War (2018): $10 million + $10.25 million from film profit = $20.25 million Rs. 1,39,00,00,000 (approx.) Adding everything together, Robert Downey Jr has earned a total of approximately $200 million in the eight movies he has appeared. With the kind of craziness we are getting to see as the tickets finally went open for booking, this has to be the greatest draw in RDJ's career with Marvel Studios.

  17. One of the world's most advanced metropolises, and one that enjoys a special soft spot with lakhs of Indians, Abu Dhabi is a hot travel destination with people from all around the world. However, with close to 33 lakh Indians calling Abu Dhabi their home, Indians do bear a special connection with the city. © Twitter So it was only a matter of time before the city also reciprocated the love Indians showered on it. True to the ideals of Pluralism that Abu Dhabi claims to uphold, the city recently left lakhs of Indians in Abu Dhabi overjoyed with the stone laying ceremony of the first-ever Hindu temple in the city. © Twitter The initial architectural layout for the temple which is being constructed by Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar-Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS), looks like an architectural marvel of modern times. Much like the Akshardham Temples in India, even this one boasts of a grandeur that is capable of invoking all the Indianness one can muster, even while being miles away from one's homeland.

  18. With the rise in the popular concept of looking ripped, the demand for fitness professionals has also increased ten folds. This has created a unique problem where every Tom, Dick and Harry who has been to the gym for 6 months and stuck needles in his veins to look good, wants to portray himself as a fitness professional to earn a quick buck. A particular profession in the fitness industry that has seen a rise in pretenders masquerading as professionals is personal training. This makes it very difficult for a novice to choose a good personal trainer. © Unsplash There is a common misconception about what makes a good personal trainer: The more ripped the trainer, the more knowledge they possess! It's quite common for people to end up believing that the best-looking people on the gym floor or social media are the most knowledgeable/qualified when it comes to training and nutrition. Don't get me wrong, sometimes the most ripped person can be the most knowledgeable one too, but in most cases, they're not. Think about it, was Ramakant Achrakar a better batsman than Sachin Tendulkar? But it is a well-established fact that he was instrumental in the development of arguably the best batsman ever. © ICC Many players who are very good at their game turn out to be really bad when it comes to coaching and some who might not even play, turn out to be really good coaches, Jose Mourinho being the prime example here. Good coaches are good because they understand the art and science of coaching and communicate in a way that their students/athletes can use to their benefit. The same thing can be said for trainers and coaches. Another aspect to consider here is that the fittest and leanest people are not fit and lean because they have the most knowledge and know how when it comes to fitness and nutrition. © Unsplash They are that way because they live, breathe, eat and shit bodybuilding and fitness. They have created, designed and organised their lives around going to the gym, meal prepping and rest and recovery. So, if you are looking for inspiration and motivation, they are the best resources you can go to but if you looking to fit fitness into your lifestyle and not fit your lifestyle around fitness, they are not what you should be looking for, as they're often not so great to rely on for the intellectual aspects of training. For example, a personal trainer who has put in time and effort to learn the principles of biomechanics, physiology and has gone through the research on individualizing your training program according to your lifestyle, needs and preferences, will always have an upper hand on someone who has just been to the gym and built his own physique. Always consider that someone who spends most of their time in the gym training or cooking for themselves will always have less time to spend on learning the technical and tactical aspects of programming necessary to make that person qualified to provide reliable advice and information to other people. © Unsplash Long story short, these are the qualities that you should be looking for the next time you look for a personal trainer: 1. Check whether the trainer has been certified from a reputed institution or not. 2. Check whether the trainer assesses you and then plans your training schedule or he plans to directly put you on a cookie cutter program. 3. Check the level of professionalism your trainer brings to the table in the beginning and look for qualities such as punctuality, patience and communication skills.

  19. Life is a game of Snakes and Ladders; sometimes you move up and sometimes you are back to square one in the most brutal fashion. But the secret lies in learning from your failures to rewrite your success. This particular strength of character was shown by none other than the controversial golfer Tiger Woods, who made a prolific comeback to the top of the pile, over the weekend. He ended his 11-year major title drought by winning his fifth Masters title at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday. A valiant two-under 70 clinched a one-shot victory over Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele that earned the veteran the glory. The story of Woods, who hugged his father Earl after his long-due win, is nothing short of dramatic. He also cherished the opportunity to scoop his son Charlie into his arms after winning his 'Fifth Green Jacket' almost 14 years after his last. Tiger Woods has won the Masters. His 81st PGA TOUR win. His 15th major title. His 5th green jacket.#LiveUnderPar pic.twitter.com/xC8165hypE — PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) April 14, 2019 "Prior to this comeback", Woods had said, "they only knew that golf caused me a lot of pain". The 43-year-old champion has been broken in so many ways but a moment with Charlie, the ensuing embrace of his mother Kultida and then of Sam, was telling of the soulful eventual glory. Astonishingly, when Woods won his 14 major championships - changing golf as he did so - his son wasn't even born, and his daughter was less than a year old for the last. And now, when he broke through for a historic 15th, they joined him, ecstatic, on a Sunday that reshaped golf again. © Reuters In his professional career of 23 years, Woods has been through a whole lot of controversies. Beginning in 2005, when he started having knee troubles, to later being accused of having an extra-marital affair with a nightclub worker, it was just where the tide began to turn. Later in February 2010, the golfer lost many promotion deals, including those of General Motors and Gatorade. He made an apology, not only to his wife (whom he divorced earlier in the year) but to the world following this incident. “I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to,” he stated. “I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me.” “I felt I was entitled. Thanks to money and fame, I didn't have far – didn't have to go far to find them. I was wrong. I was foolish.” He also stated that he enrolled in therapy programs to address such issues. With his back against the wall, Woods was just an inch away from one thing, and that was going to jail, which he later did when he was involved in a car accident in November 2009. Following a spinal surgery, in 2017, Woods was on a heavy dose of medications which made him drowsy the entire day. Later that year, Woods was arrested again for driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs. Woods told the police that he was in recovery from the surgery. When the police arrested him, the golfer was allegedly asleep, with the car's engine running and standing still in the middle of traffic. Woods said that he did not realise that the prescription drugs he was taking would affect his sleep patterns. However, he later agreed to complete the out-of-state intensive program that addressed his ways of handling his pain and his medications. Despite going through all the ups and downs in his life, pure determination brought Woods back into the limelight and placed him where he is today. This triumph brought back the talks of Woods making a run at Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 majors. And especially, after a beaming Woods slipped on his fifth Green Jacket, he will be aware that Sunday's win has brought him tantalisingly close to another Nicklaus record – that of six Augusta titles. With a hope that the Tiger roars again, we wish that he achieves all the glory forthcoming his way.
  20. Winter dawned upon us this morning when the insane wait for the premiere of everyone's favourite, 'Game Of Thrones' finally happened! Now before we tread further, here's a little reminder that this might have some spoilers for those of you who didn't watch it at 6:30 am and are saving it for a Monday evening delight. For the rest of us who traded sleep, the first reactions for the first episode are rather lukewarm for now. Just finished #GameofThrones season 8 premiere. Gah, I'm glad to see all those characters again — xMelodicx (@x_Melodic_x) April 15, 2019 Forgive me for this spoiler but I cannot contain it because this is THE REUNION WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!!!!

Nothing happened at all. #GameofThrones — Sage Bias (@Sage_Bias) April 15, 2019 And then, a special mention to Arya Stark. The woman has grown up and how!

  21. If this is your first time growing a beard and you don't know how to proceed from here, or you've had a couple of failed attempts in terms of growing a beard, you need to read below. Growing a beard is not tough if you do it the right way, and if you do it right, you can get a healthier, wholesome, softer and fuller beard. 1. Here's The Plan Do your research and figure out which beard styles flatter your face shape. If you have a long rectangular face structure, a narrow beard is not going to do you any good. While growing, make sure that extreme sides are soft so that you can mould it any which way that you want. You should always keep the crop flexible so that you can shape it whenever you want. 2. But You've Got To Be Patient © Getty Images Time is key. You can't be impatient if you're growing a beard, okay? The beard that you can possibly grow could be mighter than the one you can fathom. So, it's important to be patient and grow through the process. So the patches that you're worried about after a stubble will take a while to grow. So, you stay at it, you'll reap the benefits. We promise. 3. Shave The Sides Well You could either let the scruff grow or if you want to actually grow it out the way you want to you should take charge of the neck and cheek lines. Maintain them well by shaving them in a shape that you like. Rely on your intuition or take help of a professional in shaping them. 4 Take Supplements For The Beard © Getty Images Supplements can help grow your beard faster. Take hair supplements and dietary supplements that help in hair growth for a new crop that's softer and fuller. 5 Keep Trimming It's less about layering and more about shaping the beard. An awkward growth doesn't look good on the face. Think of it this way: you can't grow everything to equal length at the same time which where trimming comes into the picture. 6. Use A Conditioning Product © Getty Images A product like a beard conditioner and a hair oil help create growth that is soft and itch-free( for you and your partner). Massage any of them into your whiskers daily for maximum effect.
  22. Christopher Henry Gayle, this man has grown to become the bane of a lot of bowlers' existence through his 20 years of batting for the Windies team and the thought of bowling six deliveries to this batting legend seems to be a harrowing one. But, as a member of a cricket team, you have got to do what your captain says. Thus, came in the 25-year-old Mohammed Siraj to bowl his first over of the game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) with the 'Universe Boss', himself on strike. To add to Siraj's misery, his first over also happened to be the final one of the batting Power Play for the Kings XI so Gayle had a little extra motivation to lookout for bigger shots during these six deliveries. Opening the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) bowler's over with a four on the first ball, Gayle smoked Siraj for a six and another four on the second and third deliveries, respectively. Letting the gasping pacer breathe for a dot ball, Gayle continued the onslaught hitting another six and a four on the last two deliveries of the spell, bagging a total of 24 runs in the sixth over, all for himself. SIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRAAAA-J WELCOME! ð 4,6,4, Gayle has decided to unleash and he's taking on Siraj here. ð#SaddaPunjab #KXIPvRCB #KXIP #VIVOIPL — Kings XI Punjab (@lionsdenkxip) April 13, 2019 Siraj went on to bowl three more overs of his quota but resulted in becoming the most expensive bowler for the Virat Kohli side giving away 54 runs in 24 legal deliveries. Throughout the 2019 season of the IPL, Siraj has been one of the costliest bowlers not only for Bangalore but the entire league. Having bowled 22.1 overs this season, Siraj has let off 210 runs while bagging just six scalps with an economy rate of 9.47. After his first showing of the match, RCB fans took to Twitter to speculate as to what keeps the team managers of the squad from dropping him: Mohammed Siraj has @imVkohli 's nudes. Why else would he be selected? #KXIPvRCB — Harshith (@CS_Harshith) April 13, 2019 It's hard to understand why @imVkohli is still having Mohammed Siraj in the @RCBTweets team after so many disappointing performances by him. #IPL2019 #KXIPvsRCB — Vaibhav K (@VaibhavKajarek2) April 13, 2019 Still a better bowler than Mohammed Siraj ð𤣠#VIVOIPL #PerfectFan #HYDERABAD #KXIPvRCB #PLAYBOLD pic.twitter.com/C2hKZg4eNj — Prithvi Cena (@prithvicena21) April 13, 2019 Hey @RCBTweets why is #MohammedSiraj is in playing X1 such a useless player — Sushith (@Sushithsuvarna) April 13, 2019 Mohammed siraj = lol — Prashanth Karanth (@Prashanth511) April 13, 2019
  23. April 10 will probably go down in history as a huge day for science and for the entire humankind. Discussions on black holes have been going on for ages, but no one ever knew what it looked like. Until yesterday, when astronomers gave the world its first ever image of a black hole found in Galaxy M87 and let's just say we're shook. © Twitter Currently, everyone across the world is talking about the black hole and so is businessman Anand Mahindra, but in his own desi style. When the National Science Foundation shared the image of the black hole on Twitter, Anand Mahindra's 'sweet tooth' wrote, "One of the theories of the origin of our Universe is that it was born out of a black hole... So in the end, we are all inheritors of an intergalactic dunkin donuts franchise." One of the theories of the origin of our Universe is that it was born out of a black hole... So in the end, we are all inheritors of an intergalactic dunkin donuts franchise....ð https://t.co/cpohkKPyJd — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) April 10, 2019 Well, Mahindra is not alone in thinking so. The Internet is flooded with hilarious memes and jokes comparing the black hole to literally anything in the world. However, filmmaker Ram Subramanian wasn't too happy with his interpretation and wrote, "The South Indian in me is upset that you did not consider using Giant Wada to be the genesis of our universe." The South Indian in me is upset that you did not consider using Giant Wada to be the genesis of our universe. — Ram Subramanian (@VORdotcom) April 10, 2019 To which Mahindra then hilariously replied, "A thousand apologies. Wada it is. And the cosmic soup is a giant Sambar bowl." Well, now that the black hole is being called 'Wada in Sambar' can we officially change 'The Milky Way' into 'The Sambar Way'? ðð½ðð½ðð½ A thousand apologies. Wada it is. And the cosmic soup is a giant Sambar bowl. https://t.co/AHZB52IYvZ — anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) April 10, 2019 According to some reports, the black hole (which appears to be like a tiny doughnut) actually measures three million times the size of the Earth and is in a Galaxy that is 53 million light-years from the Earth. It was captured by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), using a network of eight radio telescopes located across the world.
  24. Yesterday was a huge day for people who celebrate science. It'll go down in history as a day when the first ever real image of black hole was revealed. But you know what? It's an even bigger day for female scientists across the globe because our first direct look at a black hole, though a bit blurry, is courtesy of a young lady named Katie Bouman. That's right, we earthlings got to see an image of the black hole as seen through the eyes of the Event Horizon Telescope, which is essentially an array of eight radio telescopes around the world working together. Left: MIT computer scientist Katie Bouman w/stacks of hard drives of black hole image data. Right: MIT computer scientist Margaret Hamilton w/the code she wrote that helped put a man on the moon. (image credit @floragraham)#EHTblackhole #BlackHoleDay #BlackHole pic.twitter.com/Iv5PIc8IYd — MIT CSAIL (@MIT_CSAIL) April 10, 2019 The MIT Grad, Katie, was still in school when she helped develop a computer program that created the image of the black hole. She was also the one who led testing to verify the images, which by itself is a huge task. The data from eight of those telescopes were collected on hundreds of hard drives and flown in to a central processing center. It was apparently set across manually because there was too much of it to send over the internet. It was in June last year, when all the data had arrived at the center. While speaking to Time, Katie said, “We all watched as the images appeared on our computers“. The ring came so easily. It was unbelievable.” © Event Horizon Telescope Six years ago when Katie had joined the team, she apparently didn't know a thing about black holes. After all, her background was from computer science and electrical engineering. That, however, didn't keep her away from “coming up with ways to see or measure things that are invisible,” she said. As soon as the first image of black hole was revealed, an image showing Katie next to a stack of hard drives went viral, and rightfully so. This woman deserves all the recognition. Bouman hasn't spoken to anyone else, but she CNN that “No one of us could've done it alone. It came together because of lots of different people from many backgrounds.” Congratulations to Katie Bouman to whom we owe the first photograph of a black hole ever. Not seeing her name circulate nearly enough in the press. Amazing work. And here's to more women in science (getting their credit and being remembered in history) ð¥ð¥âï¸ pic.twitter.com/wcPhB6E5qK — Tamy Emma Pepin (@TamyEmmaPepin) April 10, 2019 Interestingly, Bouman delivered a TED Talk back in 2016 called “How to take a picture of a black hole”, where she noted that the first ever picture of a black hole will come down to an international team of scientists, an Earth-sized telescope and an algorithm to put all the data together and reveal the final image.
