  5. Seems like 2020 is getting weirder by the day and we’re paying more attention to unusual things than ever before, thanks to the pandemic. Recently, a new type of fish was discovered in Malaysia that has lips and teeth resembling a human's and it's giving the internet the creeps. The picture of the fish was posted by Twitter user Raff_Nasir with the caption "Her lips are hotter than mine” roughly translated from Malaysian. © Twitter/@raff_nasir Triggerfish are very common in Malaysia and at first, that’s what was assumed when the twitter user got a hold of this fish. It is a shallow-water marine fish that is known for its high-set eyes and a small mouth. However, this particular triggerfish has a human-like mouth. The strange-looking fish is also known as "ayam laut" or "ikan jebong". © Twitter/@raff_nasir The fish belongs to the Balistidae family and is known for charging intruders as well as human divers using their tough teeth. Their bite is known to be strong enough to puncture diving suits and is normally used to fight off crabs and sea urchins. © Twitter It is worthy to point out that this is not the first time a fish has been found with 'human teeth.' Villagers in Indonesia discovered a similar fish in 2018 that had similar bucked-toothed teeth and was caught in the town of Kimindores, in the West Papua region of the south-east Asian country. Triggerfish can be found all over the world and some are known to grow up 3.3ft long. The largest fish from the species is known as “stone triggerfish” that can be found in Chile and Eastern Pacific between Mexico. While the recent post on Twitter by Raff_Nasir garnered a lot of likes and retweets, it prompted Twitter users to come up with memes that are just hilarious. Have a look at some below: pic.twitter.com/0H3Svs7rsS — ken (@KenkenLegada) July 2, 2020and that's on bloop bloop pic.twitter.com/UFmL5K324R — 𝓂𝒾𝒸𝒽 (@passionberryy) July 3, 2020It has te te tee teeth.

  6. We're going through a period of time that no one has before. It's a pandemic, the world has been under lockdown for months, social distancing is the new norm to stop the spread of the disease as much as possible. On top of that, people are losing their jobs because of COVID-19, so many people have completely lost their source of earning, the economy is crashing, it's a terrible time overall and so many people are suffering. We would've thought that being compassionate and looking out for everyone along with yourselves would also become a normal thing now, but we were mistaken. Even now, the only thing that matters is apparently just money and a viral picture recently showed that. A picture from Max Hospital shows the price listing of any treatments related to COVID-19 and saying that it's outrageously expensive would be an overstatement. I mean, just look at the absurd prices. © Reuters While Max Hospital is the one getting scrutinized right now, I'm sure this is the story of all the private hospitals who are basically taking advantage of a pandemic because money is obviously greater than human lives. And, this comes just a couple of days after the news of doctors not getting paid for months. The people on the frontlines fighting the disease and saving people are not even getting paid at a few hospitals while the hospitals themselves are making huge profits. View the full article
  7. Owing to the Coronavirus lockdown, we all are staying at home with no connection with the outside world. Well, all the streets are empty and you get to see more animals than human faces. Amitabh Bachchan is also missing the days when he used to see âecstatic wild faces and mobiles recording the momentâ outside his home during his 'Sunday Darshan' ritual. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@amitabhbachchan) Last night, he wrote, âThe Sunday does not mean the same as before .. waiting for the time to arrive .. the security in place .. that familiar sound of the step board being dragged into position .. that familiar scream of the well-wishers at the gate as each domestic entrant enters and leaves premises .. of the knowing that âheâ comes .. and then IT.â He further added, âecstatic wild faces and mobiles recording the moment .. those smiling hands and the designated positioning of the ef that shall eventually find space inside the home .. moments of connect with the familiar and the informed Ef .. the ones on the buildings ahead .. precariously positioned at vantage points .. the cheer and laments, the letters of recommendations, the out of the country guests .. numerous gift s and handicrafts from the near that have come within .. photographs .. return wave at the opposite balcony as you walk in the front door.â © Amitabh Bachchan/Tumblr © Amitabh Bachchan/Tumblr His blog is quite relatable as we are also missing human faces and itâs more than a month that we have stepped out of our houses.Big B had cancelled the ritual of the âSunday meetâ due to the outbreak of coronavirus on March 3 and has been trying to educate his fans about the importance of social distancing.

  8. With close to nine lakh active coronavirus cases across the world, the COVID-19 pandemic is not showing significant signs of slowing down any time soon. The virus is slowly spreading to new territories and adding more and more casualties to its list. At a time like this, when itâs become imperative to bring the death toll down, mankindâs only hope to get out of this alive lies in the creation of effective cures and vaccines that can neutralise the fatal coronavirus, and save millions of lives. © BCCL As the world continues to fight this invisible enemy, numerous organisations, researchers and scientists have been working tirelessly to come up with potential vaccines that can help the human race win this battle. Check out these 5 possible vaccine researches that are a silver lining for the human race right now. 1. Bill Gates Funds Setting Up Of 7 Potential Vaccine FactoriesKnown for their expertise in dealing with infectious diseases, The Gates Foundation is said to have invested huge amounts of money in setting up factories which will work to develop vaccines for coronavirus. The news came to light when The Daily Show host Trevor Noah recently released the preview clip of his upcoming episode featuring Bill Gates where the Microsoft co-founder can be heard saying, "We did fund some things to be more prepared like a vaccine effort, our early money can accelerate things.â © BCCL Gates also shared that the Foundation has picked top seven vaccine candidates and is helping them with the manufacturing. He also said, "Even though we'll end up picking at most two of them, we're going to fund factories for all seven just so we don't waste time in serially saying 'okay which vaccine works' and then building the factory.â Reportedly, Gates approved of simultaneously testing and building manufacturing units because thatâs the fastest way of developing a vaccine at this stage. 2. The Pittsburgh Coronavirus VaccineResearchers and scientists at the University of Pittsburgh recently conducted a study and tested a potential coronavirus vaccine on mice which showed a positive immune response to COVID-19. The response quantity is said to be enough to neutralize the coronavirus. The study has been published in the EBioMedicine journal which called the vaccine the PittCoVacc. © BCCL Reportedly, the fingertip-sized, sugar and protein-based 400 microneedle vaccine patch was able to create a surge of coronavirus-fighting antibodies within two weeks of delivering it. Speaking about how the vaccineâs core component was chosen, senior co-author Andrea Gambotto said, "We had previous experience on SARS-CoV in 2003 and MERS-CoV in 2014. These two viruses, which are closely related to SARS-CoV-2, teach us that a particular protein, called a spike protein, is important for inducing immunity against the virus." 3. Adenovirus Type 5 Candidate Vaccine © BCCL Recently, the World Health Organisation (WHO) shared that two candidate vaccines for COVID-19 have progressed into phase one of human clinical trials. Reportedly, the vaccine candidate is being jointly developed by CanSino Biological Inc and Beijing Institute of Biotechnology. It also needs to be noted that CanSino had earlier developed an Ebola vaccine in 2017 in partnership with the Chinese Academy of Military Medical Science's Bioengineering Institute. Apparently, this vaccine uses a Adenovirus Type 5 candidate composed of adenoviruses which âcause pneumonia and deliver potential antigens to stimulate the production of antibodies that work against the disease.â 4. Oxford University & Inovio Pharmaceutical Vaccine © BCCL As per reports, it is being said that scientists in Australia have started testing two potential coronavirus vaccines in its lab trials. The vaccines are being jointly developed by Oxford University and Inovio Pharmaceutical, and the the WHO has cleared them for animal testing. Reportedly, Australia's national science agency will decide if the vaccines work, and can be used as human vaccinations. 5. TB Vaccine As Potential COVID-19 Vaccine © BCCL Recently it was announced that scientists in Melbourne, Australia have been trying to utilise the 100-year-old tuberculosis vaccine Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) to test if it is effective against the coronavirus infection. The decision was made based on the observation that the BCG is effective in preventing fatalities in infants from a number of causes, and highly reduces the occurrence of respiratory infections. According to experts, the vaccine basically trains our immune system to recognize and respond to various bacterial, viral and parasitic infections. So clinical trials are being undertaken to ascertain if it will work against the coronavirus. View the full article

  10. A few months ago, a proposal to construct an airport at Jharkhand was pushed back, with concerns over disturbing an elephant corridor. The true distinction made between saving what's important and reconsidering something that could destroy a possible habitat, made us believe in the sanctimonious hope that we're all looking for, currently. But a few days ago, all hope came crashing down when we learnt that the Jharkhand state government, in an elaborate plan, clandestinely wiped three wildlife sanctuaries off its records in the iron ore-rich West Singbhum district. While efforts in wildlife conservation are ongoing, there is a strong network of imbalance that strengthens the stagnation attached with environmental concerns in our country. F or years on end, the tribals of the state of Jharkhand have been waging a long battle, to stop all mining activities in the mineral-rich state, as they are adversely affected the surroundings, livelihood and the environment drastically. Unfortunately, for the state of Jharkhand, the ruling government has chosen to support corporate interests over tribal concerns, over the last few decades. © Twitter While we're focussing on other ongoing tragedies in the country and across the globe, the government's pre-emptive yet swift action to destroy three wildlife sanctuaries years ago, while displacing the habituated wildlife has had an underwhelming response from the community or has not been talked about incessantly by anyone to make this an issue of grave concern. Currently, Asangda- Buru in Saranda forest division, Bamiaburu in Kolhan forest division and Songra or Tebo in Porahat division have been wiped off to prolong iron-ore mining in these regions. However, our true focus remains on how this plan to completely destroy habitats that once supported a flourishing flora and fauna, was so meticulously executed, that one really had to go through a dozen records to even figure out that the forest cover actually existed over 55 years ago. The sanctuaries were mentioned in a report which was prepared by a now-defunct Indian Board for Wildlife (IBWL), in November 1965, a delegation of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. While we're not sure what ethical or unethical practices were put in place to ensure the safety of the wildlife displaced, we do know the previously vast reservoir is now a hollow piece of land, which benefits India through the abundant iron-ore reserves. © Twitter The report that was prepared, initially, mentioned that Bihar (undivided), had seven protected areas-two national parks and five sanctuaries. Fortunately, this information also features in the Indian Forest Records: Glossary of terms used in nature conservation and wild life management, published by the Forest Research Institute (FRI) in 1970. The book, which was written by P Venkataramany mentioned that the Songra sanctuary was created in 1932, the remaining two were created in 1936, but two out of the three sanctuaries disappeared, when the Wildlife Protection Act was drafted in 1972. âThe Act says sanctuaries notified before its promulgation will be deemed to be sanctuaries,â M Ranjitsinh, a retired government official who also happened to be one of the key authors of the act, stated in an interview with Down To Earth, a reputed environmental magazine. Even after the mention of the sanctuaries in the book, none of the prevalent government documents published after 1972, mentioned Bamiaburu or Songra sanctuaries. In fact, the information for these sanctuaries is so ambiguous, that even experts can't predict their accurate location. âIf they are not there anymore, then it is a clear case of obfuscation,â says MK Ranjitsinh added. In this case though, experts state that acquiring land for mining activities would have been difficult if the government wouldn't have eliminated the three sanctuaries present there. This explains why the Sardana landscape (where the sanctuaries existed) was severely mutilated and destroyed, even though several government documents did talk about how this particular piece of land shouldn't be harmed in any way. Even historically, the Sardana mines have been the livelihood for towns like Bokaro in Jharkhand and Rourkela in Odisha. © Twitter Mining practices in India have been in a constant continuum to prolong economic gains, and local tribes around these mining belts have either been displaced or used as workers to work in these mines, risking their safety and their health. Clearing land or evacuating it for mining resources has been under India's tally of accountable environmental issues that we currently face, and we only hope either these practices are further curtailed or done a bit more judiciously, to conserve whatever land we may have left for India's flora and fauna. While land titles have been taken away and the government has acted on will to deconstruct tribal and animal land and use it to strengthen economic gains, we truly hope conservation efforts balance out the yin-yang situation here and steps are taken to further safeguard our remaining natural forest reserves around the country.

  11. If the bill passes in Senate, it will be implemented across the country, as compared to the previous version which was applicable only in the capital.
  12. If there is one thing about humans which can be declared a universal fact, it has to be our greed and selfishness. Over the many years of our existence on this beautiful abundant planet, or should we say once-abundant planet, humans have managed to rob and massacre a gazillion precious things that made Earth the blessing that it is. © Pexels From almost a million giraffes that lived in sub-Saharan Africa only a hundred years ago, the number has dropped down to only about a lakh remaining giraffes in Africa now. Whatâs even sadder is that out of the 28 African countries where these tall beauties were found, seven countries have already declared them as âextinctâ. These seven countries are - Burkina Faso, Eritrea, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Nigeria and Senegal. © Pexels At the on-going Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals, experts shared the sad detail and called for immediate and aggressive action for the conservation of the remaining giraffes. This is yet another reminder that we humans have only learnt how to take from others around us - from the environment, from the animals, from Earthâs resources, we have only learnt to devour anything and everything that comes our way. © Pexels We have taken away natural habitats, fresh air and a million precious lives of various living creatures who no longer breathe on the face of this earth. And in turn, given this beautiful planet a live time-bomb called âclimate changeâ which will perhaps be the end of us all. With the extensive exploitation that we have exposed our dear Earth to, it is quickly losing its perfection to house all of us together in harmonious coexistence. View the full article

  14. More than five crore people of Bihar came out together on Sunday to form a human chain of around 18000 kilometers in support of environmental conservation and eradication of social evils. The âmaanav shrinkhlaâ or the human chain was formed in response to the call of the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar as part of the âJal-Jeevan-Haryaliâ campaign that focuses on protecting the flora and fauna with its main emphasis on preservation of natural resources and forests. According to Indiatimes, the efforts surpassed the previous records of 2017, wherein people came together to impose a ban on the sale and consumption of alcohol. And also in 2018 when the human chain for formed and the exercise was repeated to support the campaign against dowry and child marriage. Chief Secretary, Deepak Kumar told PTI, "Altogether 5.17 crore people took part in the human chain which was 18,034 kilometers long. The length this year was much longer than 14,000 kilometers of 2018 and 11,000 kilometers of the year before when Bihar first entered record books beating Bangladesh.â "A total of seven helicopters had been pressed into service for capturing aerial images of the event that was bound to go down in the annals of history as a record. Besides, more than 100 drone cameras have clicked photographs which showed the enthusiasm of the state's people, for which we are thankful,â he added. The exercise began at 11:30 am and the people stood around thirty minutes holding hands and CM himself was seen leading the chain at the Gandhi Maidan, Bihar. Hereâs how the event looked- A glimpse of Manav Shrinkhla inside the Main Secretariat campus, Patna. https://t.co/04veD5ks3K pic.twitter.com/B7Ibt4yTG3 â Uday Bhan Singh (@usudaybhan) January 19, 2020 Manav shrinkhla special 𥰠pic.twitter.com/nfnXBySAto â Aniket Kumar (@AniketK31285111) January 19, 2020 #ManavShrinkhala2020 I have also participated in Manav Shrinkhla.

  15. India takes pride in its diversity. Be it linguistic, cultural or religious diversity, all of it has been an inherent part of India's social fabric that the entire world has taken note of. But as this diversity undergoes scrutiny in the country at the moment, yet another incident has come to light which only reaffirms the fact that regardless of our personal faiths, Indians will continue to treat humanity as their religion. © BCCL Recently, Hindu neighbours in Kanpur decided to form a human-chain around a baraat headed for a niqah in the curfew-imposed locality. The heartwarming incident came to pass following a phone call from the groom, who informed the bride Zeenat's uncle that it seemed difficult for the baraat to reach the wedding venue as per schedule, given the on-going curfew in the violence-hit city. © Twitter While Zeenat's uncle Wajid sat with other relatives and debated over the next course of action, word got out and their neighbour Vimal Chapadiya heard about the family's plight. Following this, he gathered two other friends Somnath and Neeraj Tiwari, who along with other locals, escorted the baraat to the wedding venue by forming a human chain around them. © BCCL The 70 baraatis reached the venue without any difficulty with the help of 50 Hindus who stood guard over their safety. Vimal and the others stayed back until the bidai ceremony, and when Zeenat came back, she rushed to meet “Vimal bhaiya” whom she thinks of as her “farishta”. As for Vimal, this is what he had to say, “I have seen Zeenat grow up. She is like my younger sister. How could I let her heart be broken? We are neighbours and I had to stand with the family in times of distress.” We'd love to see more of this, wouldn't we? View the full article
  16. Prime Minister Imran Khan. Photo: FilePrime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday reiterated calls for an end to India’s gross abuse and oppression of Kashmiris.“On Human Rights Day, we must appeal to the world's conscience, to upholders of international law and to the United Nations Security Council to act against the illegal annexation of Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK)by the Indian occupation government,” PM Imran tweeted. “We salute and stand resolutely with the brave Kashmiris struggling for their right of self-determination,” he added.Occupied Kashmir has been under military curfew since August 5, when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi revoked the constitutional autonomy of the region and arrested thousands of people. Since the annexation, New Delhi has also enforced a near complete communications blackout by blocking internet and telecommunication services in the disputed territory.‘Govt committed to protecting the rights of all citizens’In a separate tweet, PM Imran assured that his government remains committed to the protection of the rights of all citizens without discrimination. “On International Human Rights Day, Muslims need to remember that the message of equality, justice and protection of human rights for all was given more than 1400 years ago by our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him),” the premier said.The prime minister added that the message of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)"embodied the cardinal principles of respect for human rights and human dignity".The premier said his government was committed to the protection of human rights for all citizens as preached by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), especially in his last sermon.World Human Rights Day is observed every year on December 10, the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

  20. From wholesome influencers to taking over India's app stores, Bytedance's social media phenomenon, Tik Tok has captured the imagination of suburban India like nothing before it. With over 200 million users and counting, it seems to be growing with no signs of slowing down, regardless of recent controversies. Of course, with this popularity comes a never-ending scroll of memes, trends that make you question the fate of the human race with just how cringy they are - although once in a while, these go so far as to become more hilarious than repulsive. We take a look at six of the most ridiculous cringe-fests that have been flooding the platform this November. #6secchallenge Are you truly done with life, and have absolutely nothing better to do? You're still better off than these guys - over 202 million views went to TikTok users who recorded themselves blinking in six-second intervals. Seriously, the apocalypse couldn't come any sooner. #Oops Poke your friend until they get so irritated that they… chomp on your finger. Sure, it is cute when kids do something like this, but let's be honest - watching a bunch of 20-somethings do this really kills my faith in humanity. #comedyteacher Starting with a video uploaded by TV actor Gaurav Gera, these videos started off with his household help, Mrs Rajeshwari, trying to teach the pronunciation of English words - which she usually ruins beyond recognition. Unfortunately for us, 53 million views worth of videos also went up, trying to imitate her. Why? Your guess is as good as ours. #eyechallenge Just like #6secchallenge, here's another exercise in pointlessness that boggles the mind. The challenge? Make four facial expressions with just your eyes… and that's about it. Incredibly, this challenge racked up over half a billion views ever since it went viral. #maafkardo Admittedly, this one is gold. Someone had the bright idea to combine a remix of DDLJ's Mere Khwabon Mein, and pair it with a scene of someone getting scolded for doing something wrong, complete with some pretty goofy dancing. This one got so popular, it's currently sitting at over a billion views, and went viral even in countries such as Russia and Turkey. #terimeri Originating from the fascinating rags-to-riches story of Ranu Mondal, this trend picks up the recent Teri Meri song she's recorded with singer Himesh Reshammiya - and puts it over some of the cheesiest, nauseating couples I've ever had the misfortune to come against. Tiktok - you either love it or hate it. View the full article
  21. The Kerala cabinet has officially approved the “fibre optic network project” that enables free high-speed internet access to approximately 20 lakh households in the state. These households are considered to be below the poverty line in the state and the initiative is expected to be achieved by December 2020. © Phys Current Finance Minister of Kerala Dr Thomas Isaac said the internet is being made a “basic citizen right” and the initiative will be set up by the Kerala State Electricity Board Limited and Kerala State IT Infrastructure Limited. Internet connection made a basic a citizen right. Kerala cabinet gives final nod for â¹1548 crores Kerala Fibre Optic Network (KFON)Project to provide Internet to every household in the state. For 20 lakh BPL households it will be free. The project to be completed by Dec 2020. — Thomas Isaac (@drthomasisaac) November 7, 2019 According to Indian Express, the project is expected to cost Rs 1548 crore and the state government said in a statement, “the K-Fon project will be constructive for projects rooted in artificial intelligence, blockchain, internet of things (IoT) and startups. Around 30,000 schools and government offices will be connected with high-speed internet networks. In villages, local self-help groups can avail the network to conduct sales through e-commerce. At present, only about 20% of mobile towers in the state are connected through optical fibre networks.” © Unsplash/John Schnobricj The project's announcement is in line with a recent Kerala High Court verdict that said the right to access the Internet is part of the fundamental right to education as well as the right to privacy under Article 21 of the Constitution.
