  1. The release of 100 Taliban fighters is the first steps towards a subsequent exchange of 6,000 prisoners
  2. The Coronavirus pandemic has shaken all of us and disrupted our everyday lives. It's not like we had never heard of the words 'pandemics' or 'lockdowns' before, as we've all had these troubling terms thrown at us in schools at some point with pictures of a dystopian reality that we never thought could be our own. But 2020 has shown us that some of the worst possible realities can, in fact, come true. Not that we're not fighting this, we hope to resume routine life as soon as we can, and in a month or two hopefully, we will be back on the streets. However, these 3-4 weeks of isolation, for a lot of people, has put things in perspective as they make a list of things that they want to do as soon as it's safe to step out. We asked a bunch of people the first thing that they would want to do as soon as the lockdown ends, and here are some hilarious answers: 1. "The time in the quarantine has made me regret all the times a turned down a party invite, I might possibly turn into a party animal once this ends" © iStock 2. "Once it's safe to meet strangers again, I'm going to find someone on Tinder and hook-up with them" © Excel Productions 3. "I've been craving fried chicken after watching a bunch of movies of people eating fried chicken in them. Once the pandemic ends, I will go and live in KFC for a whole week." © iStock 4. "Have *** with my boyfriend." © iStock 5. "My family is conservative, I can't drink till the lockdown gets over. I plan to get sloshed on the streets with my friends without worrying about catching any infections." © iStock 6. "I'm done with washing my hands too many times, once it's safe again, I plan to not wash my hands for a month." 7. "I miss greeting people on the streets, I'm going to greet every random stranger on the street once this gets over." © iStock 8. " I'm staying with my boyfriend's family for the duration of the lockdown, as soon as this gets over, I plan to go back and lock myself in my flat for two days." 9. "I think working in a lockdown has made my team a little crazy, I can't wait for this to get over so I can quit my job." © iStock 10. "Give my girlfriend a ten-minute long bear hug." © Excel Productions So, what are you planning on doing once it is safe to step out? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article
  3. It can get difficult to feed yourself if you're stuck at home because of the uncertainty around the availability of supplies. Not everyone has access to a kitchen or some may only know how to cook instant noodles. But this doesnât mean you cannot eat from restaurants as food delivery companies like Zomato and Swiggy are still operational, albeit with limited services, depending on your area. However, with food delivery comes the stigma of whether it is safe or not and arguably, it is a genuine concern during these tough times. Both Zomato and Swiggy have introduced zero-contact policies for restaurants and their delivery agents. However, in order to order food from places that are safe and hygienic, there is a simple way to make sure you are ordering from the right places. © MensXP When ordering on Zomato, make sure you select the âSafe and Hygienic' filter to exclude restaurants that are not following safety and hygiene guidelines. In addition, the search results will also show restaurants that are following WHO safety practices in blue text right below its listing. The app also lets you check the riderâs sanitisation if you are not convinced about the delivery agentâs hygiene. After placing the order, in the delivery agentâs information section, Zomato will show whether the agent has sanitised before picking up the order. Additionally, you can even ask the delivery agent to leave your order at the door to avoid direct contact. © MensXP © MensXP For Swiggy, you can access all the restaurants following safety standards from the homepage itself. The app also highlights restaurants that are conducting daily temperature checks for their staff and pick-up agents. An additional badge can also be found on the listing where it mentions the restaurant follows the âBest Safety Standard.â Both food delivery companies have implemented safety practices such as educating their staff about precautions that are necessary to protect themselves, ensure their staff wash their hands regularly, that hand sanitisers are easily accessible for riders, ensuring that their kitchen staff is trained to wash and sanitise their hands thoroughly, ensure restaurants are disinfected daily amongst other practices that you can read in detail in the app itself. Riders are also being screened for higher body temperatures and assuring that food does not get delivered by an agent with higher than normal body temperature. If you are going to order food online, we urge you to only order food from restaurants that are following the hygiene and safety standards. View the full article

Also, some of us will watch the film just for the song âPehla Nashaâ. View the full article
  5. This is a 27-year-old story where two titans of the technology world were competing with each other for the dominant personal computer spot. In August of 1997, Bill Gates saved Apple, which at the time was on the brink of bankruptcy. While most companies would let their rivals die out, this is the story of when two companies decided to help each other out instead of letting one fold. © Pinterest âBill, thank you. The worldâs a better place,â Jobs told Gates when Microsoft invested $150 million in Apple and offered free access to use Microsoft Office on Mac personal computers. This historic move saved Apple from going down under and in exchange, Apple dropped their lawsuit against Microsoft, claiming the company copied their operating system. 20 years ago this week, Steve Jobs was on the cover of @TIME, thanking @BillGates for "saving Apple." pic.twitter.com/AhUnLnOZ8t â Codecademy (@Codecademy) August 24, 2017However, 10 years later, the two CEOs met on-stage at the D5 tech conference and relived the memory of coming together. In the interview, Jobs said "Apple was in very serious trouble,â and what was really clear was that "if the game was a zero-sum game where for Apple to win, Microsoft had to lose, then Apple was going to lose.â âThere were too many people at Apple and in the Apple ecosystem playing [that] game,â he explained. âAnd it was clear that you didnât have to play that game because Apple wasnât going to beat Microsoft.â © Pinterest âTo me, it was pretty essential to break that paradigm,â Jobs said. âAnd it was also important that you know, Microsoft was the biggest software developer outside of Apple, developing for the Mac. So it was just crazy what was happening at that time. And Apple was very weak and so I called Bill up and we tried to patch things up.â For Microsoft, it was a new business opportunity as well as a way to get Apple back on its feet. While Gates did end up with 18.2 million Apple shares, but these were non-voting shares as Microsoft was their fiercest rival. Eventually, Gates sold all of Apple shares in 2003, however as of 2019, those shares would have been worth $40-50 billion. âThatâs worked out very well,â said Gates at the D5 tech conference. âIn fact, every couple years or so, thereâs been something new that weâve been able to do on the Mac and itâs been a great business for us.â Well, many thought that this tech mythic story wasnât true until the two CEOs met for an interview together. Thereâs no doubt it is a great story about the two rivals. It proves eliminating competition isnât the only way to win and in turn, working together helped both companies to become the richest organisations in the world. What makes this story extraordinary is the fact that Bill Gates at the time was a cut-throat businessman and had a reputation for not being apologetic. Today, Bill Gates is known for his generosity and philanthropy, but he was a very different person in 1997 who chose to save his rival rather than see it sink. View the full article
  6. Nation-wide tally of confirmed coronavirus cases crosses 1,200; Sindh govt bans congregational prayers in Karachi till April 5
  7. The ongoing coronavirus outbreak outbreak may have stalled things worldwide, it's safe to say that 2020 has seen kickass smartphones. We've already seen a ton of new phones that have come out so far this year, and the new OnePlus phones are next in line. While we don't exactly know when these new OnePlus phones will come out amidst all the chaos, we do have the specification details of the phones. Thanks to a tipster, we now have the complete specs of both the OnePlus 8 as well as the OnePlus 8 Pro. Here's everything that you need to know - OnePlus 8 Pro The OnePlus 8 Pro is said to feature a 6.78-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It'll be powered by the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC and will have up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. As for the optics, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to sport a quad-camera setup with two 48MP sensors, along with an 8MP and a 5MP sensor. © Twitter/ Ishan Agarwal In terms of the battery, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to pack a 4,510mAh unit with support for up to 30W Warp Charging. This time around, the OnePlus 8 Pro is also said to have wireless charging and an IP rating. OnePlus 8 The OnePlus 8 will also be powered by the same processor and is expected to come with the same amount of RAM and storage. As for the display, the OnePlus 8 will obviously be a little smaller and hence it'll sport a 6.55-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. © Twitter/ Ishan Agarwal As for the cameras, the OnePlus 8 is said to sport a triple-camera setup which will include a 48MP sensor, a 16MP sensor, and a 2MP sensor. It'll have a 4,300mAh battery with support for 30W Warp charging, but there's no mention of wireless charging. It looks like the OnePlus 8 will also miss out on the IP rating. All this is making the OnePlus 8 Pro look like a way better phone with major upgrades. Also, Oppo's Find series phones usually give us a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming OnePlus phones. So looking at the new Oppo Find X2, we think the OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8 will indeed be something to look forward to. Exclusive: They're coming! Here is the full specification list of the #OnePlus8 & 8 Pro. Seems like #OnePlus8Pro is gonna be a beast with 6.78" 120hz QHD+ Display and 48+48+8+5MP Camera Setup. Will have 30W Wireless Charging & IP68 Rating too. I'm so excited! #OnePlus8Series pic.twitter.com/j1AAo19q4J â Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) March 25, 2020 As mentioned before, we don't know when these phones will hit the market. There's a global pandemic going on right now, so it's safe to say that these phones won't be arriving anytime soon. Note: The header & social images are for representation only. That's not the final design of the upcoming OnePlus phones. View the full article

  9. In a surprising new development in Britain's fight against COVID-19, none other than heir to the throne, 71-year old Prince Charles of Wales has been diagnosed with the deadly viral strain, after being tested earlier this Monday. Known as the 'Perpetual Prince' in British media circles, he holds the record for the longest-serving heir apparent (living) in British history - a legacy that's been the butt of several tabloid jokes involving him and his mother, Queen Elizabeth II - who, at 92, seems to be chugging along splendidly. While Prince Charles has his own detailed and multifaceted life behind him - the subject of countless biographies and historical books - there remains a lot of quirky, unusual and downright entertaining facts that have slipped by over the years. The Prince Was Bullied In School © Wikimedia You might consider that kids would think twice before messing with the product of a 1,500-year old monarchy, but not every Scottish boarding school is as fun as Hogwarts. Attending classes at Gordonstoun, Scotland, when a classmate would talk to him, bullies would start making slurping sounds to imply his peers were 'sucking up', according to Robert Jobson in Charles at Seventy: Thoughts, Hopes and Dreams. While the young Prince kept himself composed and didn't get into any trouble during his schooldays, he would write home about his troubles. “The people in my dormitory are foul,” he wrote in a 1963 letter. “Goodness, they are horrid. I don't know how anybody could be so foul.” His Controversial Marriage With Princess Diana © Reuters While most of Britain's general public were ecstatic to see Princess Diana enter the royal family back in 1981, future years saw many biographers chart how both Diana and Charles were not keen on tying the knot - one that was undone when the pair divorced in 1992. Diana met Charles at 16 when he was dating her elder sister Lady Sarah, beginning a series of coincidences that eventually led to the events captured in National Geographic's Diana: In Her Own Words - a documentary where archived interviews of the Princess revealed her disinterest in marrying Charles on their wedding day, and succumbing to the pressures of her sisters and the monarchy itself. Charles, who was reportedly in love for several years with his current wife Duchess Camilla, did not come out to his family about his regrets - although in Charles: The Misunderstood Prince, he was revealed as sharing a private moment of weakness with his valet. 'Stephen,' he asked his valet, 'Is it possible to love two women at the same time?' Looking at Charles' life now, perhaps the answer was yes. British Playboy Royalty, Or Not? © Reuters Don't get him wrong though - while the prince was pretty sombre when it came to marriage, he certainly had his fair share of tours around London's tabloids back in the day, with any young woman of royal lineage turning into fodder for the press, and Lady Sarah Spencer was no exception. While the prince himself maintains that he was a shy, reserved person, the press and some members of the royal family suggested that Charles was quite the charmer - his great-uncle Lord Mountbatten told interviewers that the young prince was forever 'popping in and out of bed with a girl.' Yes, this is that Lord Mountbatten, believe it or not. Either way, Charles would go on to resent this image and denounce it later in his life. He Owns A Vintage Aston Martin That Runs On Wine © GQ Move over, James Bond - while Prince Charles may not live up to the same kind of playboy reputation, he certainly matches up when it comes to cars. The prince owns an Aston Martin DB6 MKII that was gifted to him by Queen Elizabeth on his 21st birthday. While the car itself is a gorgeous piece of British motoring heritage, it also happens to literally run on white wine. The prince happens to be a patron and generous donor to environmental causes - and his vintage ride was pretty far off from passing any recent pollution checks. Determined to ride guilt-free, he went on to strongarm the engineers at Aston Martin - who after some convincing, managed to turn his Aston into the most delicious-smelling vehicle to roll out of their factories. He's A Skilled Illusionist © Reuters Probably the coolest character trait for any member of the British royal family, Prince Charles actually has some skills in the art of illusions and magic - having passed the official examination to join the Magic Circle — a British social organization of magicians — back in 1975. His Secret-Service Codename is 'Unicorn' © Reuters Certain visiting dignitaries to the U.S. are given code names of their own, and Charles was given Unicorn. The fanciful name is oddly fitting - the unicorn is the national animal of Scotland and has been part of its coat-of-arms for some 600 years, with the earliest banners and signs found in Rothesay Castle, Scotland. Among Prince Charles's earliest titles, which he received at age 5, is Duke of Rothesay. The Prince Is An Accomplished Author - Of Children's Books © Reuters In 1980, Prince Charles wrote a children's book called The Old Man of Lochnagar, based on the stories he would tell his younger brothers, Princes Andrew and Edward. It centers around an old man who went to the caves near Balmoral looking for a quiet place to take a hot bath. The book was later turned into an animated short film, narrated by the prince. While this is one of his more famous and unusual works, the prince has shone as a writer with several books written on subjects ranging from architecture to philosophy, and has lent his forewords to 24 separate publications. Here's wishing him a speedy recovery. View the full article
  10. Today was a day like no other. Narendra Modi in his speech had announced that March 22, 2020 is going to be Janta Curfew, wherein people won't step out of their house the entire day. However, at 5 pm, to respect people who are risking their lives amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has taken over the world, people are supposed to step out in their balconies and clap and even use their kitchen utensils to ring in unison as a mark of respect. Around 4.55 pm, people had already started clapping and ringing bells in their balconies, and as the minutes passed the ringing sound exponentially increased. While the street dogs got scared after a relatively peaceful day sans human interaction, people were blasting ringing music on their Marshall speakers. Some people were recording this strange affair and put it up online. The hashtag #5baje5minute is going to be trending for a while now. Here are some reactions online and how celebrities participated today. 1. Here are the residents in Ahmedabad.Here's Ahmedabad residents thanking all our health workers & everyone out their for all the efforts!

  12. The irresponsibility with which Indian citizens have been dealing with the outbreak of contagious and even deadly pandemic, Coronavirus is alarming, to say the least. The WHO and our government have been constantly urging people to practice social distancing, go on a self-quarantine for 14 days if you have traveled abroad, wash hands regularly, keep a sanitizer handy and make sure that you donât ignore your symptoms. But seems like it's still difficult for people to understand this and take a note of it in their head. If you analyze the situation in the country, people who are literate and seem to be educated are finding it hard to contain themselves and self-isolate whenever needed. Better known as 'padhe likhe gawaar' in hindi, these irresponsible citizens are actually putting the lives of millions at risk with their negligence. View this post on InstagramHi ðð»ââï¸A post shared by (@kanik4kapoor) People, who are suspected cases, are running away from quarantine centers and some are complaining of the isolation rooms not being up to the mark. What's worse is that people are not even taking self-isolation seriously. Needless to say, if we keep at it with this attitude, it would be next to impossible for our country to battle it. Even after knowing the fact that Coronavirus is contagious, there are some people who have taken it lightly and in fact, have put many others in danger. Here are such instances of the 'literate and educated' acting irresponsibly. 1. Let me start by presenting the case of Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor who didnât care to self-quarantine after she came from London. According to reports, she hid her travel history from the concerned authorities. The worst part is that she has put many others in danger as she was actively attending parties in the period she should have isolated herself and just yesterday, the news broke in that she has been tested positive for Coronavirus. View this post on InstagramHello everyone, For the past 4 days I have had signs of flu, I got myself tested and it came positive for Covid-19. My family and I are in complete quarantine now and following medical advice on how to move forward. Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway aswell. I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago. At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs. I am feeling ok, like a normal flu and a mild fever, however we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us. We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives. Wishing everyone good health. Jai Hind ! Take care, KKA post shared by (@kanik4kapoor) 2. Another infamous case is about a senior bureaucratâs son, who traveled from London, moved around the city of Kolkata freely for good two days even after he was advised to get himself checked immediately. His mother whoâs a bureaucrat is also being accused of hiding this from the authorities. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, âYou see that symptoms have come, but you roamed about like an irresponsible person. It could infect 5,000 others, from contact with you. Er cheye obibechok kaaj aar kichhui hotey paarey na (there can be nothing more inconsiderate than this).â Here's the chilling account of the same: 3. A few days back, we had reported how a few civilians in Nagpur made the streets their workout stations. It seems like common sense has suddenly vanished from our minds. The government has laid out strict guidelines asking people to not gather and this is why gyms were shut in the first place. Thankfully, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has announced a lockdown in the entire state, which should help in curbing such cases. 4. In another shocking news, a medical superintendent from AIIMS, Bhubaneswar also hid his sonâs travel history of flying in from London to Delhi first and then to Bhubaneswar by an Indigo flight on March 18. However, on March 19, he complained of problems in breathing and was taken to AIIMS Bhubaneswar where he was tested positive. On the very same day, the medical superintendent whoâs the nodal officer of Covid-19 in the city had a meeting with the state government officials and resident doctors are now demanding action against him for hiding the travel history of his son. 5. It's not just civilians, as even politicians seem to be taking it lightly. Reportedly, Koneru Konappa, an MLA from Telangana's ruling party, who had just returned from the US, skipped his quarantine and instead travelled in trains and even attended a social function and political gathering. So #TRS #Sirpur MLA #konerukonappa instead of being in #quarantine, travelled by train to attend municipal council meeting in #Kaghaznagar where entire council reportedly attended; was it ignorance or callousness about public safety?@ndtv @ndtvindia #CoronavirusOutbreakindia pic.twitter.com/tnLERd3vx5 â Uma Sudhir (@umasudhir) March 20, 2020 There are many more unreported cases that are not being taken into consideration. And in such dire circumstances thereâs only one question for all these negligent people - is it a lack of compassion or sheer stupidity that's making them do this? We appeal to everyone to start taking this pandemic very seriously otherwise at this rate, we will surely enter stage 3. View the full article
  13. According to the Chinese governmentâs statements, the first Coronavirus patient - COVID-19âs âpatient zeroâ had contracted the virus on November 17th, 2019. Itâs been just over 120 days and close to 300,000 cases have been reported since then, and the global effect of this pandemic seems to have spread on a scale never seen before on Earth © Reuters; A combination picture shows school children leaving the primary school of Omar El Mokhtar in Cairo, Egypt March 11, 2020. The school is closed following government efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus. From Times Square NYC to the skies of Mumbai, things are changing rapidly - and in ways that many of us wouldnât have expected. With the economy finding new and unusual ways to keep chugging along, public streets seem emptier - very few are fancying vacations with air travel regulations in place. Hereâs how the pandemic has switched things up, at key locations around the world: 1. The Johor-Singapore Causeway The causeway between #Singapore and #Malaysia is one of of the world's busiest border crossings. Here it is before and after Malaysia imposed a travel ban to stop the spread of the #coronavirus pic.twitter.com/ElwPwIjCS5 â Aradhana Aravindan (@RDchatters) March 18, 2020 This immense 1,056-metre link between Malaysia and Singapore is crucial to the backbone of maritime Southeast Asia - being the busiest border crossing in the world with 350,000 travellers daily. After Malaysiaâs government set forth a series of travel bans, not a single civilian vehicle has made the trip. 2. The Kaabah, Mecca (left) empty mecca source from the internet.
