  1. Sudan has seen a lot of turmoil and instability since June 2019, when the military first ousted the long-term ruling president Omar-Al-Bashir. It all started way back in December 2018, when the ruling president's government imposed emergency austerity methods in order to do away with an inevitable economic collapse. © BBC This led to a severe political crisis, which in turn made the security forces open fire on pro-democracy protestors in Khartoum. While the protest was peacefully handled, according to the New York Times, as many as 100 people have been killed and about 326 injured. At least 100 peaceful protesters were killed during a military crackdown in Sudan — now the country is at a standstill pic.twitter.com/AK0mPNkG8U — NowThis (@nowthisnews) 12 June 2019 The protestors are demanding a civilian-led interim government and since then, representatives of the protests have been in talks with the military, determining who takes control of authority. But the situation has bled for way too long now and according to the Central Committee of Sudan Doctors, at least 40 bodies were recovered from the river Nile. But How Did It All Begin? Well, the protests started in December 2018 to overthrow the President. Cuts were made to bread and fuel subsidies which sparked protests in the east over the standard of living and ultimately, they reached to the capital Khartoum. The protestors obviously demanded Bashir's government to be thrown out, who had been in power for 30 years. The protests finally reached a conclusion on April 6, when people occupied the square in front of the military headquarters and demanded that the army fight the president out of his rule. Almost 5 days later, the military announced the president was no longer in power. © BBC Women played a main role in the protests, with 22-year-old Alaa Saleh leading the group. Even though a woman was the face of the protestors, as many as 70 women were raped by the police and the paramilitary forces during an attack at the protest camp, while some protestors were shot at, on June 3rd. #SudanMassacre What is happening in Sudan? This is so bad. pic.twitter.com/fMvdiKlUB3 — jafar badi (@BadiJafar) 13 June 2019 So, Now Who Is In Charge? A council of generals took over on April 11 but there was a lot of struggle for the country to regain normalcy, in every sense of the word. The seven-member Transitional Military Council is led by Lt-Gen Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan and they insist they need to be in charge to bring everything back to normalcy again. But unfortunately, the army is not a unified force in the country and a lot of paramilitary organisations and Islamic militia have also taken up authority there. For now, the streets of Sudan are deserted with a complete Internet blackout in the country. The United Nations has condemned the attacks and The Human Rights Council has been called about to probe an inquiry into the Human Rights violations committed by the military in Sudan. Schools, hospitals and health centres in #Sudan have been targeted, looted and destroyed. Health workers have been attacked simply for doing their job. To save children's lives, the violence must stop. #ChildrenUnderAttack pic.twitter.com/A6VbGI6aGo — UNICEF (@UNICEF) 13 June 2019 Who Exactly Is The Opposition? Even though the economic collapse brought the Sudanese from all walks of life to the streets, the demonstration organisation was taken over by The Sudanese Professionals Association, a collaboration of doctors, lawyers and health workers. The protestors are local people across all age groups but most of them are young people, fighting for their rights. When the military finally took power in April, the protestors stood outside Military Headquarters demanding the authority to be given to a civilian administration. The civilian group of protestors and the ruling generals, who come under the umbrella group 'Alliance For Freedom and Change', eventually came to an agreement. © Twitter What Did They Agree On? Both the Civilian Administration and the Military decided on a three-year-transition period to civilian rule. An agreement was reached on May 15, 2019. The protestors claim that Bashir's regime is so deeply planted and implemented that a long transition is needed to completely uproot his political network and allow fair democratic elections again. The two sides also agreed on a new government, including a sovereign council, a cabinet and a legislative body. © Twitter But unfortunately, the military leaders didn't stick to their decisions and scrapped the agreements reached to set up a fresh elections mandate within nine months. The TMC head decided to stop negotiating with the Alliance For Freedom and Change and cancel whatever had been agreed on. In the wake of this fresh agreement, the pro-democracy leaders said they were cutting all contacts with the TMC and called for a 'total civil disobedience' and a general strike. While the strikes were called off on June 11, which almost brought Khartoum to a standstill, most African and Western countries have backed the protestors. Saudi Arabia has urged discussion on both sides but not condemned the military. © Twitter After the strikes have been pulled away, protest leaders are willing to resume power-sharing talks with the ruling military council. “The Alliance for Freedom and Change agreed to end the civil disobedience from today. Both sides have also agreed to resume talks soon." Mahmoud Drir, the official mediator made a statement about the situation. We just hope both the parties reach a common consensus and peace is restored in Sudan, especially in Khartoum, really soon.
  2. Think 'Sacred Games', 'Ghoul', 'Lust Stories' or 'Mirzapur', 'The Test Case' and 'Breathe', the one common thread they share amongst themselves is their screening platform and the popularity they have come to enjoy despite it. © Netflix With tremendous boom in the digital space, more and more prominent faces from the Hindi film industry are making their way to the smaller and glass-covered screens (as opposed to the silver screen(s) they are more used to gracing). © Amazon Prime While actors like Saif Ali Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi, Nimrat Kaur, Radhika Apte, Kiara Advani, R. Madhavan and the likes, received both critical acclaim and tremendous popularity through their web appearances last year, 2019 also holds a lot of promise for a bunch of Bollywood actors who have or will make their digital debuts this year. © Netflix Check out these 5 notable Bollywood actors who are making their digital debuts in 2019. 1. Akshay Kumar © Twitter Akshay was literally on fire when he announced that he will be venturing into the digital space with Vikram Malhotra's action thriller 'The End'. 2. Emraan Hashmi © Twitter The man knows how to work the camera and work up movie goers *winks*, but his digital debut with Netflix's 'Bard of Blood' is expected to take this up a notch for the actor. An espionage thriller, it's based on a Bilal Siddiqi novel by the same name. 3. Abhishek Bachchan © Twitter R. Madhavan's 'Breathe' is getting an installment with 'Breathe 2' and it will feature Abhishek Bachchan in the lead. His will reportedly essay the role of a psychiatrist on the show. 4. Dia Mirza © Twitter Dia Mirza hasn't been an active part of mainstream Bollywood films of late. The former Miss India is now making her digital debut with Sonam Nair's 'Kaafir', as a Kashmiri woman trapped between the politics of India and Pakistan. 5. Huma Qureshi © Twitter Huma Qureshi's digital debut with Netflix's 'Leila' premiered yesterday amidst a lot of excitement, following the crushing response the show's trailer received online.
  3. Ayushmann Khurrana is literally the man of the hour RN. Ever since the trailer for 'Article 15' rolled out, we can't stop looking at his amped-up, fashion-forward appearances. This man has been wise in making his style choices and knows exactly how to arrive all spiffed up, no matter the occasion. From sporting a whacky printed blazer to donning a long plaid shirt, Ayushmann has left no box unchecked and brings his A-game every damn time. As for his latest look, Ayushmann is camouflaging our feed with this statement-making outfit. Check it out: A splendid choice that steers clear of the usual, has to be a neon camouflage hype tracksuit by Abhishek Paatni, courtesy AK's stylist, Isha Bhansali. Casual, street and sharp, the silhouettes are engineered with modern fashion dialogue. © Instagram/Isha Bhansali But what grabbed our attention the most were his White Gucci sneakers. Ayushmann opted for Rhyton sneakers with NY Yankees™ print. The chunky sneakers have a retro vibe that looks minimal yet fashionable. We totally recommend these street-cred shoes that are comfortable and a worthy move to cop this summer. © Gucci As far as the design goes, the sneakers are inspired by the New York Yankees Baseball Hat which is incorporated in the Cruise 2019 collection. The inner sole has a blue rosebud print while the outer leather is debossed with the Gucci logo at the back sole. The heel centre is elevated, lending enough height to look suave and sophisticated. These sneakers are also available in eclectic blue colour. © Gucci © Gucci © Gucci When it comes to the cost of these white sneakers in India, they retail at a price of Rs 61,823. © Gucci © Gucci White Sneakers will always be on the fashion radar and no matter where you plan to nail the outfit, these trendsetters are a surefire way to stand out than the rest. I mean, look at them. © Gucci These white Gucci sneakers are truly a great investment at the price of Rs 61,823. They dial up the style formula and make a dramatic statement each time you step out wearing them. Not just that, these sneakers do the talking even with the most basic outfit of yours. Don't we all want that?
  4. Yes, tonight will be the best night of the year to take a good look at the world's largest planet. Jupiter, the Earth and the Sun all line up in a row tonight, making up for prime viewing opportunities. Not just that, Jupiter is also said to be at its closest to us tonight, which means, you can even see four of its moons i.e. Io, Europa, Callisto, and Ganymede if you have the right gear.Photo: © YouTube (Main Image) © NASA The cosmic event, dubbed 'Opposition' will occur at 6 PM EST, which is around 3.30AM according to the Indian Standard Time. You can expect to see the planet shinning bright like a jewel around the same time. According to the stargazers at NASA, this event only happens once every 13 months. So, if you miss out on taking a look at the Jupiter tonight, then you'll have to wait 13 months again to get a chance to see it up close. Of course, you can always check out the planet with the help of the images captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft, which is currently orbiting the massive planet, but there's nothing like taking a good look at the thing with your naked eyes. © Reuters Also, if you happen to have a good telescope, then you can also nerd out by spotting things like Jupiter's individual cloud bands and its characteristic Great Red Spot. But that's just optional. You'll still get a good view without any special equipment whatsoever. Enjoy!
  5. E3 kicks off today with EA Play but the company has already made the release date of FIFA 20 official. The game is all set to launch on September 27 but the publisher did not divulge any other more information about the upcoming game. Tonight's EA Play will be the platform where the company will reveal more details about the game; however, we do know some details that will make the game a bit better. 8.6.19 https://twitter.com/hashtag/FIFA20?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FIFA20 https://twitter.com/hashtag/EAPLAY?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#EAPLAY https://t.co/aHA9Vq8fg6">https://t.co/aHA9Vq8fg6 https://t.co/TEKuEU7ACW">pic.twitter.com/TEKuEU7ACW — EA SPORTS FIFA (@EASPORTSFIFA) https://twitter.com/EASPORTSFIFA/status/1136648999073529856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 6, 2019 EA did, however, confirm some gameplay changes that will make the game better than FIFA 19 this year. The most crucial change comes is in the AI defending mechanics as the company wants to put more emphasis on manual defending rather than letting the computer do it for you. EA plans to increase the likelihood of the ball going to your teammate after a manual tackle on your opponent. Automatic defending will also be affected as the efficient and reaction time will be reduced. This will let players hone their defending skills and depend less on the computer for defending. (c) Electronic Arts In terms of shooting, EA wants to improve accuracy during one on one or easy attacking scenarios. Goalkeeper's reaction times will also be reduced in these type of situations in order to give it a more realistic approach to defending and attacking. FIFA 19 players have complained in the past about keepers having “Superhuman" reaction times. Even when shooting, the green timed shots are also being reduced to two frames for all shots. The green timed shots are also becoming less accurate to increase the challenge of scoring a goal. EA did, however, reassure players that green timed shots will "still be more accurate than non-timed shots.” (c) Electronic Arts EA is also working hard on making the shooting and passing more realistic were volleys will be more variable, and less accurate. In terms of passing, if you pass a ball while doing a 180° turn, it will be a weaker pass than normal and also be less accurate. New passing options are also being introduced i.e. a new dinked pass where it won't be automatic anymore. It will be more contextual rather than be user-controlled. The other new passing option will be a driven pass-and-go feature which will replace the manual pass button combo.

  7. E3 is just a day away and we have already seen some major announcements from Google, and blockbuster games like 'Watch Dogs 3: Legion' have been confirmed. However, there's more to the biggest gaming event in the world, as we can expect new hardware, new games and everything else related to gaming to be announced. So, here are some of our predictions for E3 2019: 1. Next-Gen Xbox Console © Microsoft Microsoft is the only console manufacturers to be attending E3 this year and we can expect the company to capitalise on this opportunity. Microsoft has already shared some information about the next console dubbed “Project Scarlett” and we can expect some big news. Although it is quite possible that Microsoft will not show us the console but the company may detail specifications and some of its features. Microsoft will also announce a new Xbox game pass for PC gamers and we expect to hear from Microsoft about the subscription service's pricing and game collection details. 2. Halo Infinite, Gears 5 & A New Forza Title © 343 Industries Microsoft is looking to showcase some of its first-party games and we can expect to see a demo of 'Halo Infinite', 'Gears of War 5' and a new 'Forza' title. We can also expect these game to come as a package as a part of the Xbox game pass for PC. Microsoft acquired several new game studios last year including 'The Initiative', 'Undead Labs', 'Playground Games', 'Ninja Theory' and 'Compulsion Games'. We can expect some sort of revelation of games these studios have been working on in the past year. 3. Marvel's Avengers Game & Final Fantasy Remake VII Remake © Sqaure Enix Square Enix is attending E3 this year and thanks to a tweet posted by the company, we know that Marvel's 'Avengers' will be shown off at the conference this year. We can also expect to see more of 'Final Fantasy VII Remake' as it was showcased in Sony's latest State of Play Event. The game is being developed by Crystal Dynamic 4. Watch Dogs 3: Legion & Beyond Good And Evil 2 © Ubisoft Ubisoft has been cracking-out some great games in the past year and we can expect to see some never before seen games. The company already announced a new Ghost Recon game via a teaser trailer, however, there are other games that will be showcased. Ubisoft has now confirmed that it will be showing 'Watch Dogs 3: Legion' that takes place in London, United Kingdom. We can also expect to see some gameplay for 'Beyond Good' and 'Evil 2' as the company has been teasing that game for a while. As of now, there is no word whether Ubisoft will show a new Splinter Cell game as it looks highly unlikely. Beyond the two new games, Ubisoft is rumoured to showcase three to four AAA titles but we can't be entirely sure about that for now. 5. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Dragon Age 4 And FIFA 20 © Respawn Entertainment EA kicks off the E3 conference with their EA Play tomorrow at 9:45 PM IST and we can expect to see some gameplay footage for the new Star Wars game. The game was revealed at 'Star Wars Celebration' earlier this year and we are bound to see more than just a trailer. EA will also announce FIFA 20 and what all it brings to the table in terms of new features and gameplay. We can also expect to see more about Madden, NHL and NBA Live franchises. EA also debuted a teaser trailer for 'Dragon Age 4' at last years The Game Awards and even though it seems unlikely, we can expect some more information about the game that is currently in development.
  8. We're going to talk about an age old dating trend which has found a new name and is incessant in its occurrence and let's face it, can be quite lethal. We're talking about 'Love Bombing' and it's the worst manipulative move in today's dating game. No, love bombing isn't bombarding someone with love. Well, not entirely. It's a lot more than that. (c)Pintrest Love bombing is an emotionally abusive situation in a relationship where the victim goes through manipulative withdrawal after being showered with love and affection. The victims are usually people who have gone through emotionally strung out, abusive relationships in the past and haven't worked on changing their particular pattern; hence they get manipulated easily into another damaging relationship, because they haven't worked on their past issues. Such people attract relationships with narcissistic folks, making them vulnerable to the concept of love bombing. (c)Pintrest It's basically a weapon disguised as affection and you may get a lot of it from the person who is love bombing you, but her ultimate motive is to manipulate you in to believing it's all real. So, in order to avoid being love-bombed, especially when you've just come out of a serious relationship, here's what you can do: (1) Take Things Very Slow One major fact about love bombers are they will get under your skin and your psyche way too quickly. They will give their all, in little time and suddenly it'll feel like this fits perfectly well. Because love is blind, quite literally and before you know it, after a boatload of love and affection they will show you a side you were never privy to before. While giving you the attention that you always craved for, they also shower you with gifts, which in most cases is a transactional process for them. All these moves are quite calculative and well thought out, before they start withdrawing and showing you their true colours (mostly their abusive and controlling side) before the romance starts to fizzle out. (c)Pintrest So, in order to avoid that situation, take it slow at first and make sure you know the person fairly well, before you're drawn or lured in to their trap. Love bombers are impatient people. They want everything to go rather quickly so you have to take your own time to figure what you need to and in case they bail, because you were taking your time, they were worth it to begin with. (2) Don't Delve Into Future-Talks Love bombers love talking about the future, in little to no time. You may feel you have found the right person who is giving you everything you've ever desired including making future plans with you. From wedding plans to how many kids you both want to have, everything will be laid straight out like the best made plans. But there's a catch. Future talks with a love bomber are sure shot signs of red flag. It's tricky because love bombers trick you into believing they are an important part of your life and indispensable to your future happiness. (c)Pintrest Make sure you don't indulge in any future plans with them, until you're sure and significant time has gone by and you've figured out their true intention. Otherwise they will leave you with a million dreams for the future and disappear. (3) If They Start To Seem Difficult, Leave A few traits you can't miss when you're with a narcissistic love bomber is that they will play on your insecurities, their unreasonable demands and expectations will increase, things will obviously start to fizzle out and the relationship will feel like a constant emotional-merry-go-round. These are the signs you need to watch out for, when things start getting a little too aggressive and abrupt and leave. Save yourself some hurt and recognise these patterns. You will know how they treat you, which will be very different from how anyone in a 'normal' relationship would. (c)Pintrest Most times it's a human tendency to feel good about oneself and attract people who make people feel good about themselves. Sometimes people go through heavily abusive relationships and make it a pattern to attract people who will behave the same way the others have in the past, with them. The solution is to break the pattern and introspect as to why you let certain people into your life. Love bombing is one of the most toxic forms of abuse and if you realise the traces early on, you can definitely break away and live without the unnecessary toxicity. Or just pay attention to the pointers mentioned above and be at guard with love bombers who may come your way.
  9. Apple finally announced the new iOS 13 for iPhones and iPod Touch during the WWDC 2019 keynote yesterday. Yes, iOS is no longer available for iPad and that's because the company announced a new OS for iPads called iPadOS. iOS 13, in case you don't know, comes with a bunch of new features like Dark Mode, a couple of redesigned apps, faster app loading times, faster FaceID and more. © Apple According to Apple, the first public beta of iOS 13 will launch in July. But if the curiosity to try out the new OS is killing you, then you can actually install and check out the iOS 13 beta right now. Yes, it's possible and here's how you can do it. How To Install iOS 13 Right Now In order to install iOS 13 on your iPhone right now, you'll need a paid Apple developer account. That's because this isn't a public iOS 13 beta rollout. The beta software is only available for the developer to play with the OS and make compatible apps. If you're not a developer and don't have a developer account, then you can enroll for one right here. Do make a note that not all users are eligible to have a developer account, so you might not be able to create one right away. If you have a paid developer account, then you visit this page of the Apple Developer site to download the beta software right now. Again, do make a note that this won't be an OTA update, so you'll have to manually install the update. Wait For The Public Beta While the developer beta is out right now, we suggest you wait for the public rollout next month. For one, it'll be free to download and can be loaded via an OTA update. It'll also be slightly more polished than the developer beta that's out right now. Also, before you proceed, it's worth pointing out that it's best to create a back up before installing the beta software. Failing to do so will force you to be stuck with the beta version of iOS 13, which may or may not be very stable for daily use. Supported iPhones & iPods © Apple According to Apple, these are devices that can take part in the iOS 13 beta - iPhone XS, XS Max iPhone XR iPhone X iPhone 8, 8 Plus iPhone 7, 7 Plus iPhone 6s, 6s Plus iPhone SE iPod Touch 7th Generation Well, now that you know everything about iOS 13 beta, go ahead and check out all the new features that are available.
  10. We have often heard people say that World War III will be fought over access to drinking water, and as the days go by, it seems more and more likely that this prediction will come true. Sooner or later, people across the world will be fighting over every glass of drinking water if the situation is not brought under control at the earliest. However, it seems a Rajasthan village is already facing the wrath of nature wherein owing to extreme weather conditions, the residents of Parasampura village have started keeping their limited supply of drinking water under lock and key. © ANI The news came to light after an ANI report shared how the villagers have come up with a bizarre solution of keeping their water containers locked to prevent theft of drinking water. At a place where even water tankers visit only once in ten days, the villagers have no option but to ration their drinking water and guard it with their lives. A resident even compared the blessing of having clean drinking water to be as valuable as gold and silver. Bhilwara: Residents of Parasrampura village in Hurda collect water in a drum & keep it locked to prevent stealing of water; say, "water tankers comes on a gap of 10 days. Water has become more precious to us than gold & silver, so we keep it locked." #Rajasthan pic.twitter.com/H2ZuckZib8 — ANI (@ANI) June 3, 2019 Yesterday, Rajasthan recorded astonishingly high temperatures with the mercury touching 50-degrees-Celsius in certain areas. We suppose it's high time we acknowledge our privileges, do our bit to save water and stay clear of exploiting natural resources before it's too late.
  11. Apple has finally turned to the dark side as the Cupertino giant made the new feature official for iOS 13. The announcement came at Apple's annual WWDC event and the company showed off some applications running in dark mode. Some of these apps include Music, Calendar, Notes, Maps and Messages. (c) Apple The new dark mode will finally be available for iOS devices later this year when iOS 13 rolls out. Google announced its own dark mode feature at I/O last month and is already available to use in the beta version of Android Q. Dark Mode takes inspiration from macOS's Mojave operating system where there isn't a huge difference on the Home screen. Things, however, change after unlocking the iPhone where apps like Music, Maps and other applications that have a darker interface. There are also differences in the interface in other Apple applications like messages, emojis, keyboard and photos. (c) Apple The dark mode is not only easy on your eyes, but it can also help in saving battery life by a margin. If you own an iPhone X, XS, and XS Max, there will be less power consumption, thanks to the OLED display. Dark Mode has been a very popular requested feature as it not only conserves battery life and puts less strain on your eyes, but also looks better to look at. The new dark mode feature also extends to widgets and notifications. The dark mode is not exclusive to system-wide apps as third-party applications will also be to take advantage of this feature, apps like Google, YouTube, Twitter, Medium, Reddit, Wikipedia, Instapaper, IMDb and many more.
  12. iTunes is regarded as one of the most iconic music applications, that has been a part of Apple's ecosystem for 18 years. It was initially used to manage music for Apple's iPod and iPhone products and later became a comprehensive store for selling music, movies and TV shows, that was later expanded to devices such as the iPad and Apple TV. However, reports are now suggesting that the Cupertino giant is now going to bid goodbye to the iconic application and replace it with existing applications that support subscription services. © Apple Bloomberg reports that Apple is expected to announce three separate apps for music, TV and podcasts that will basically replace the iTunes store. The move is said to come to streamline content on separate platforms. Apple has already announced a new Apple TV+ service and it seems like it may be the reason for the shutting down of iTunes. The move is expected to be announced tonight at Apple's annual WWDC event. Currently, the iTunes application is only available on MacBooks and iMacs as iPhones and iPads already offer separate applications for TV, Music and Podcast. By streamlining these apps, Apple will become a multifaceted service provider as well. © Apple Due to this report, Apple users have already responded with concerns on Twitter. However, Apple has assured that music, movies and TV shows that have already been purchased by users from iTunes will still be available on the Music app with an Apple Music subscription. Users who have redeemed iTunes gift cards will also be credited to the Apple ID balance. This balance can be later used on the App Store, upgrade iCloud storage or for buying one of the subscription services from Apple. Source: Bloomberg
  13. 2019 has been an amazing year for gaming. Lots of games have already come out, and there are a lot more launches lined up throughout the year. So if you don't have a gaming PC or if you've been planning to build one, then now is the time to do that. We already have a guide to help you build a budget gaming PC build under Rs. 50,000. But if you have some more room to stretch your budget, then here's a quick guide to help you pick the right parts for a gaming PC build under Rs 90,000. 1) Processor: Intel i5-8600K - Rs. 21,000 © Intel For this particular build, we went with the Intel 8th Gen i5 8600K Coffee Lake processor. It's a hexacore processor with a base frequency of 2.8Ghz and can top out at 4.3Ghz boost on all cores. Six cores are all you need for gaming, so it can't get better than this. You can also go with the Intel Core i5-8400, however, you'll be dealing with a slightly slower clock speed with that CPU. 2) Motherboard: MSI Z370 Krait - Rs. 11,400 © MSI MSI is a popular brand when it comes to motherboards. They have an impressive lineup and we'll be going with the MSI Z370 Krait for this particular list. This particular board supports dual graphics card configuration with reinforced PCIe slots. You can also fit an M.2 SSD if your budget allows for it. BTW, this motherboard also comes with RGB lighting. 3) RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB 2,400Mhz - Rs. 6,400 © Corsair Considering the fact that you should at least have 8GB of RAM in your system, it's safe to avoid the bottleneck and go with 16GB of RAM. For this build, we'll be going with the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 2400Mhz memory kit. With this, you'll get two 8GB sticks, and they'll be working in dual channel on our motherboard, so you'll get superior performance. 4) SSD: HP 240GB - Rs. 2,800 © HP You'll definitely be needing an SSD to make sure your PC boot up time and other software loading times are less. Depending on your budget, you can go with either 240GB or 512GB SSD. We'll just be using a 240GB SSD to make sure our components are well within our budget. 5) HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB - Rs. 4,795 © Seagate Obviously, 240GB storage is not going to be enough for a gaming PC. So, you'll have to spend a bit on an HDD. Seagate's HDD's have been our preferred choice for a long time, so we suggest you grab this Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD for your PC as well. 6) GPU: Zotac GeForce RTX 2060 - Rs. 32,000 © Zotac Alright, so the GPU. Nvidia's new RTX series of GPUs have been flying off the shelves, and that's what we're going with for this build. You can pick up an RTX 2060 GPU for this build, and you can get some solid performance. Games run very smooth on the RTX 2060 card, and you'll easily get frames above 60FPS on most AAA titles. 7) PSU - Corsair VS550 550-Watt - Rs. 3,500 © Corsair Corsair's VS550 is the best PSU you can pick up for under Rs. 4,000. It packs enough power to run all your components and leave enough headroom for future upgrades too. It's vastly compatible and a very reliable PSU. 8) Cabinet - Cooler Master MasterBox MB520 Case - Rs. 7,000 © Cooler Master Since we're dealing with a fairly powerful PC build here, you might want to pick up a cabinet that can show off all the components. Use this case, add some RGB lighting, and you've got yourself a cabinet which you'll love to show off online. If you are up for that, then we suggest you pick up the Cooler Master MasterBox MB520 cabinet. Well, that wraps up the list of components you can pick up for your gaming PC build. We hope you manage to find all these parts in stock online. If not, you might want to check with your local retailer offline. You might even end up grabbing some of them at a relatively cheaper price.
  14. The much-anticipated event of the month, which will also mark the end of the two months-long General Elections in India, Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony is all set to take place a few hours from now. It's a big day not only for the ruling government, but also the country at large as it gets ready to welcome Modi ji as the country's prime minister for yet another term. © Twitter The swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Modi and other Union Ministers will be officiated by President Ram Nath Kovind within the premises of Rashtrapati Bhavan at 7 pm this evening, in the presence of some of the world's most important and famous individuals. While it was said that PM Modi had sent out invitations to numerous international dignitaries from around the world, it has also been reported that there are 8,000 confirmed guests who are all set to attend PM Modi's oath taking ceremony, making it a historical event to be hosted at the venue. © Twitter That said, let's take a look at all the famous people from India and around the world who will be attending the ceremony hours from now.

Big names from the film industry such as Shah Rukh Khan, Rajnikanth, Kangana Ranaut and others are expected to attend the ceremony this evening. Other Dignitaries 1. Families of deceased BJP workers from political violence-hit West Bengal have also been invited for the ceremony. 2. Reportedly, families of Pulwama attack martyrs have also been invited for the ceremony but there is no confirmation on the news.
  15. The World Cup fever has gripped everyone and adding a little more excitement to that is the fact the the much awaited sports extravaganza '83', which will trace the journey of India's historic win at the 1983 world cup led by Kapil Dev has begun shooting in full fervour and thanks to social media, we are in tow of what is happening. The entire star cast left for London where they'll be shooting their parts. Needless to say, they look dapper in the official picture that was shared across all channels.

  16. If there is one thing that never fails to unite the entire Indian subcontinent, regardless of their many differences, it is the possibility of watching India and Pakistan butt heads on the cricket field. The excitement is buzzing at all times, the anticipation is almost palpable as the arch rivals get ready for the face-off, while the cheering can get bad enough to numb the ears. Literally. © Twitter People from both sides of the border wait with bated breath before every delivery, and after every shot that is played, let alone the times when the third umpire gets involved. There's no denying that both India and Pakistan feel very strongly about any and every cricket match between the two countries. © Twitter However, now with the ICC World Cup kick-starting in just a few hours, and with the Indo-Pak match scheduled for 16th June, the pheromones are only expected to get crazier with each passing day. But, what's crazier still is that so many people are willing to spend a fortune to catch the Indo-Pak clash LIVE in Manchester. © Twitter If you happen to be one of those who are considering (no matter how last minute it may seem now) to fly down to England in the new couple of days to catch the ICC World Cup LIVE, here is the cheapest way to get it done. Two-Way Air Ticket Expenses © Getty Images Managing the travel expenses will be the biggest concern while putting this trip together. The distance as well as the growing demands for tickets due to the World Cup might force you to shell out a good amount of money to reach your destination. The round-trip air fare for Economy tickets from Delhi to London and back, will cost you Rs 55,000 approximately. Two-Way Air Tickets Per Head (Approx.): Rs. 55,000 Lodging Expenses © Getty Images Since the Indo-Pak clash is scheduled to take place in Manchester, ideally one should look for a place that is as close to Old Trafford as possible. However, that means excessive expenditure because of the surging hotel fares. So we suggest opting for the cheapest AirBnB option instead. An AirBnB lodging in someplace like Failsworth will cost you approximately Rs 2,600 per night. Depending on how long you plan to stay after the Indo-Pak match (and how good or bad the result of the match is), you'd better do the required math for your lodging expenses. AirBnB Lodging Per Night (Approx.): Rs 2,600 © Twitter Those two would be the two of your major expenses apart from inter-city commutation, sightseeing and food expenditure which again depends on personal preferences and cannot be generalised. However, given that the value of the pound is touching the sky at Rs. 88 we presume that's also going to add bulk to your trip in a lot of ways. Estimated Total Travel & Lodging Expenses For 2 Night/3 Days (Inclusive of Food,Sightseeing,etc): ≤ Rs. 1.20 Lakhs That ain't cheap, but if it's last minute and you wish to make the most of the trip to London, it can't get cheaper than this.
  17. How funny is it to see a goofy Ranveer Singh bickering with Alia Bhatt over hotel and flight booking discounts and how sweet was it to see Deepika and her mom talk about learning from failures and moving forward as they spoke about what “ander se strong” meant for them in a certain toothpaste advertisement? The Indian advertising industry has found its winning formula in India's obsession with celebrities and anything (and everything) they say or do. From making top Bollywood A-listers endorse everything from toilet cleaners, to undergarments and anti-dandruff shampoos, we have seen it all. © Twitter However, given how much Indians worship celebs and eat out of their hands as they try to sell them some commodity or service, it's no wonder that the industry is booming and sort of becoming a source of major side income for these stars. 2018 was especially a landmark year when it came as close to spending 1000 crores on celebrities for brand promotions. It was Bollywood's 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar who toppled every other star, including the Khans who have dominated the industry for the longest time, by bagging 100 crores through brand endorsements last year. © Twitter While the shift has already begun and brands are more actively seeking out Bollywood's young brigade for the youth connect, some old-timers have managed to hold the top spot after Akshay. 1. Ranveer Singh © Twitter Claiming the second spot right after Akshay is Ranveer Singh who made Rs 84 crore through advertisements last year. 2. Deepika Padukone © Twitter In the third position is Bollywood's leading lady and Ranveer's SO Deepika, who bagged Rs 75 crores through endorsements alone in 2018. 3. Amitabh Bachchan © Twitter Next up, Bollywood evergreen 'Don' Amitabh Bachchan who added Rs 72 crore to his bank balance through ads. 4. Alia Bhatt © Twitter Claiming the fifth spot in the top five is Alia Bhatt, who took home Rs 68 crore through her many advertisement projects.
  18. The International Shooting Sport Federation's Shooting World Cup is currently in action in Munich, Germany and the Indian contingent is burning it up in Deutschland, ahead of the rest of the participating countries, including China, with three gold medals on the fourth day of the tournament. The first medal for Team India in the German city came at the hands of Apurvi Chandela, who outscored Chinese shooters Luyao Wang and Hong Xu in the women's 10m Air Rifle final with a 633.0 points in the qualifiers and 251.0 points in the final. .@apurvichandela, what game & what spirit! You have taken Indian shooting miles ahead by winning Gold in 10m air rifle at the ISSF Shooting World Cup. Congratulations on winning your second gold of the year! To many more! Keep making India proud.ð®ð³ pic.twitter.com/2XOybs2O5X — Rajyavardhan Rathore (@Ra_THORe) May 27, 2019 Despite the unfortunate elimination of the national favourite in Manu Bhaker after a double weapon malfunction in the seventh series, it was Rahi Sarnobat who held the fort for the Indian contingent on the third day and went on to score perfect 5s in the eighth and ninth series to end her run with a total of 37 points which got her the gold in the women's 25m pistol event. Rahi Sarnobat wins GOLDð¥ in #ISSFMunichWC in Women's 25m Pistol event. She earned a quota as well for India in #TokyoOlympics. Manu Bhaker will be devastated as her pistol malfunctioned at the wrong time when she was looking good for 2nd quota.@ISSF_Shooting @OfficialNRAI pic.twitter.com/0ihycNVdac — ð®ð³ Soumya Sarkar ð®ð³ (@SarkarSpeaking) May 27, 2019 Everyone present at the event however, was in awe of the 17-year-old Saurabh Chaudhary who in a brilliant performance of precision and focus won the gold in the men's 10m Pistol event while breaking both the junior and senior world records in the process. 17-yr-old Saurabh Chaudhary wins Goldð in 10m Air Pistol Event of Shooting World Cup (Munich). Broke his own world record with 246.3 points in the final (previous record 245 pts). Congrats champ. ðâð pic.twitter.com/V7sUXf9qcO — Sir Jadeja fan (@SirJadeja) May 27, 2019 Other than the fact that these young shooters are achieving success at the world level and dominating the shooting sports fraternity worldover, the reason why acknowledging their efforts is a lot more crucial that a lot of people think. While the final moment heroics of Rahi Sarnobat in the World Cup in Munich, got her a spot in the Indian contingent for Tokyo Olympics 2020, other shooters like Bhaker, Chaudhary and Chandela are also extremely likely to join her in the quest for bagging as many medals for their nation at the greatest spectacle on sports on earth. These sportspersons decided to do something different. In a country of cricket craving people, they decided to achieve greatness in something which is not that mainstream and have been doing it on a constant basis. Even though the ICC World Cup 2019 is just around the corner and the entire nation is rooting for the Men in Blue to win their third World Cup title, all we request for is a small amount of your appreciation for these athletes too.
  19. The majority of the people that I see in the gym have the same old idea about warm-up before beginning their workout. Five-to-seven minutes on a treadmill or spin bike and they will jump straight on to the bench press or squat rack and begin weight training. A lot of people don't even spend 5 minutes warming up their body but just perform a warm-up set before beginning the actual set. This is a clear invitation to injuries. If you also have been following a similar approach for warming up your body before exercise, read on to know one of the best ways to warm-up before training. Why Is Warming-Up Necessary? A warm-up before exercise prepares your body for the workout. It elevates the body temperature and increases heart rate and respiration. © Getty Images This, in turn, increases the flow of oxygenated blood to your working muscles. Secondly, a proper warm-up prepares you mentally as well for the upcoming workout. It will activate your neuro-muscular system to prepare your body for the upcoming movements. While some of you may think that warm-up is only for novices and beginners, even the most experienced and professional athletes also perform a good warm-up before their exercise. Step 1 – Getting Warmed Up Warming up your body can be done through various ways which include any form of cardiovascular exercise. The purpose of doing some form of cardiovascular exercise, in the beginning, is to elevate the heart rate and body temperature. You don't have to restrict yourself to the treadmill or stationary bikes but you can also choose to do skipping, jumping jacks or any other cardiovascular movement that you enjoy doing. © Getty Images Whatever option you choose amongst them, make sure that you gradually increase the effort. Don't just straight away increase the intensity. When you feel that your respiration rate has increased and the body temperature has risen slowly, you can stop doing this step for the warm-up. Step 2 – Foam Roll Though you could foam roll your entire body before beginning the workout, I suggest you at least foam roll the particular muscle group that you will be training that day. © Getty Images What a form roller does is that it mobilizes the fluid component of the tissue and activates as well as balances the muscle spindle. This, in turn, provides information to your body about the changes in the length and tension of the muscle that you are working on. If there is any specific muscle group that is stiff, make sure to foam roll it appropriately till the time it relaxes and there is a decrease in tenderness. Step 3 – Perform Dynamic Stretching © Getty Images Dynamic stretching is like informing your muscles that they are going to be used up extensively in the next few minutes. Dynamic stretching, in very simple words, means taking your muscles and joints through a full range of motion in multiple planes. I recommend including dynamic stretches for upper as well lower body so that your body is thoroughly prepared for the warm-up set. After performing the dynamic stretching for a couple of minutes, begin with the warm-up set for the exercise that you will be doing for the day.

  20. We've been playing 'Call Of Duty: Mobile' beta for a few days and the multiplayer game has some classic CoD feel to it with an added twist of Battle Royale. The game supports both multiplayer formats and there are some features and key differences in the game. 'Call Of Duty' is by far one of the biggest first-person shooter franchises and the mobile version borrows many key maps and features from its AAA counterparts. Many weapons, game modes and maps from previous CoD games are featured in the mobile version. Here are all the features, modes and things you need to know about CoD mobile: Game Modes: © Activision In classic fashion, 'Call of Duty Mobile' has multiplayer modes such as team deathmatch and domination, however, the biggest addition this week was its Battle Royale mode. The mode can be played in either third person or first person POV and has single, duos and squad (up to 4 teammates) playlists. The Battle Royale map has been stitched together using many popular CoD maps such as Firing Range, Nuketown and others. CoD Mobile also has different classes for this mode where each character has a set of unique abilities. When the game officially launches, other game modes such as Dominations, Hardpoint, and frontline are also expected to be available. Each multiplayer mode will let you play with 8 to 10 players. Firing Modes: © Activision There are two types of firing modes in Call Of Duty: Mobile i.e. simple and advanced. In simple mode, the gun fires automatically the moment you set aim on an enemy. This mode is perfect for casuals, however, we do not advise using this mode in the long run. Due to the automatic firing nature of this mode, you will often be inaccurate and miss your targets as you do not have control over your firing actions. You may not have to worry about tapping the screen to fire the gun but you will easily give away your position if you miss. In advanced mode, there is a dedicated fire mode similar to what you have seen PUBG mobile. The heads up display (HUD) has all the necessary control buttons within the reach of your thumb. If you are already used to playing PUBG mobile, this is the mode you want to use during your gameplay. This mode can also be expanded later when Activision adds support for Bluetooth gamepads. Battle Royale: © Activision There are a few key differences in the Battle Royale mode when compared to PUBG mobile. For example, you can revive your teammates even if they have died. It works similar to how it does on Apex Legends, where you can pick up your teammates' dog tag for a revival. You can also use various vehicles in the mode such has helicopters, ATVs and others for tactical advantage. Apart from vehicles, players will also need to choose a specific class before they jump out. These classes come with unique skills and abilities that players can take advantage of for better movement or even kills. It works very similar to how it does on Call of Duty's Blackout mode for Black Ops 4. What Are These Abilities? © MensXP There are plenty of abilities that are assigned to specific classes where some give you passive advantages. For example, the Ghost class lets players hide their character on the mini-map from UAVs. There are other perks such as Fast Recover, where your health regenerates faster than others.

  23. 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!

  24. According to a finding by 9to5Mac, Apple devices have now shown up in the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory database. The new iPhone models have shown up ahead of their release later this year and we finally know what the model numbers are. © YouTube The 2019 iPhones have appeared in the database with model numbers A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223. The database compiles a list of devices that depend on encryption technologies and most of Apple's devices both past and present are on that list. Similarly, earlier this year the iPad Air and iPad mini 5 were registered on the database five months ahead of its launch. According to the 9to5Mac's report, “The A2111, A2161, A2215 identifiers probably represent the new iPhone XR successor. The other model identifiers will be for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max.” The other model numbers are also expected to be different versions of the iPhone 11 and the iPhone R successor as different regions offer different cellular band compatibility. In the case of China, the iPhone comes with a physical dual SIM phone that is exclusive to the region. © Twitter 2019 iPhones are expected to look largely the same as the previous generation while previous leaks have suggested a triple-camera setup at the back. In terms of the feel of the phone, there are rumours that suggest that Apple is opting for a more matte finish instead of the glass back. Other new features include reverse wireless charging for the new AirPods and Apple new more A13 chipset. © Twitter Apple will be adding an extra sensor to both the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11/11Max as a form of upgrades. The iPhone XR is now rumoured to have a dual-camera setup similar to the iPhone XS whereas the iPhone 11 is expected to have a triple camera setup. The iPhone 11 is expected to have a larger camera bump and in the shape of a square. The additional third sensor is said to be an ultra-wide lens and will also be used for more detailed images at a standard zoom level. The new iPhones are expected to be announced at Apple's annual press event that is scheduled to take place sometime in September. Source: 9to5Mac
  25. Almost a week down, and yet the only thing that the tech community is talking about are the new releases by OnePlus - the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus7 Pro. While both the flagship smartphones stand as tall winners in the ultra premium segment, can we take a moment here to appreciate how the brand has set a mark in its own way, when it comes to mega launches and clever marketing strategies. Think about it - from creating curiosity and conversation on social media around the new launches to organising pop-ups around the world, this brand really knows how to make a loyal customer base for itself. This time around, the Chinese smartphone maker went all out with their global launch, and may we say what a stupendous success it really was. This was their biggest product launch that managed to create global hype that we haven't seen in the longest time. Here are 5 things from the launch you need to know about: 1. What A Turnout! Over 3,500 people attended the mega launch of the OnePlus 7 Series that happened on May 14 in Bengaluru. This was, by far, their biggest launch ever, and look what an awesome buzz they created! The OnePlus 7 Series launch took place in Bengaluru, on the 14th of May where we unveiled the new OnePlus lineup to an audience of over 3500 people. Our biggest launch ever.

The main launch event of the OnePlus 7 series took place simultaneously in New York, London, and Bengaluru. And guess what? The event was live-streamed by almost four million OnePlus fans across the globe. Now that's an overwhelming response! 3. A Complete Flagship This is the first time the brand has launched two flagship smartphones (OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus7 Pro) at the same time. In fact, we feel the OnePlus7 Pro is the most complete flagship till date. The smartphone just checks all the boxes. From opting for the immersive 6.67-inch Fluid AMOLED display to including the pop-up selfie camera and setting the trend of fast charging with Warp Charge technology, OnePlus7 Pro has it all. Besides, did we mention that this killer flagship comes in three unique colours including Mirror Grey, Almond, and Nebula Blue? 4. Marketing Game On Point If there is anything we should learn from OnePlus is that they have one of the smartest marketing strategies in the tech industry. They know how to get back to the basics to market their product through word-of-mouth and social media buzz. They were the first-ones to enter the market with invite-only smartphones and currently they continue to maintain that hype through their Experience Pop-Ups. We're taking things to the next level with the OnePlus Experience Pop-up. Here, you can experience the OnePlus 7 Series, just the way we want you to.
