  1. We're only six months into the year, but 2020 has already been quite an eventful year. From a possible World War 3 to a full-blown pandemic, we've seen it all. While we're still struggling to get out of a pandemic, it looks like there's already a new disease coming out of China. According to a new report, a city in Northern China sounded an alert after a suspected case of bubonic plague was reported. A level 3 warning of plague prevention and control came out of Bayannur, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The suspected case was reported by a hospital in Bayannur. © Reuters The warning period will apparently continue until the end of 2020. The local health authority has confirmed the case and said there's a risk of a human plague epidemic spreading in the city. This, by the way, wasn't the first suspected case of this newly reported plague. Earlier this month, two other adults were found to be affected. They both are brothers and they're being tested at two separate hospitals. The brother reportedly ate marmot meat. Marmot, for those of you who don't know, is a type of rodent. A total of 146 people, who they've been in contact with, have been isolated and are being treated at local hospitals. Bubonic plague is a bacterial disease that is spread by flies living on wild rodents such as marmots. It can kill an adult in less than 24 hours if not treated in time. Last year, a couple died in the western Mongolian province of Bayan-Ulgii after eating raw marmot meat. The researchers are now concerned about further mutation so that they can transfer from person to person. That's probably the worst thing that can happen while we're already battling a full-blown pandemic. People are obviously not happy about this whole situation that we're in. Here are some Twitter responses to this news about the new disease. No! I beg for mercy. I canât cope with any more such news... https://t.co/3CtrIrAVII â anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) July 5, 2020 True that Itne virus hum biology class me na padhe honge jitne ye log iss saal invent kar chuke he ð¤£ð¤£ â Appu (@Appu_Jr1) July 5, 2020 We wish everything happening in 2020 was 'Fake News' Please tell me it's fake news. â Asha (@iamAshaLatha) July 5, 2020 Let's not step out of the house only. @PMOIndia seal boarders till end of 2020 . â SVDragnov (@SDragnov) July 5, 2020 We really hope we're not looking at a serious disease here.

  3. Quarantine and self-isolation isn't something that we're used to. However, it's the only thing we can do to keep ourselves as well as the people around us safe from coronavirus. We all can use the spare time to try new things. If your idea of doing something new has something to do with starting a podcast, then you're in the right place. The best thing about having your own podcast is that you don't necessarily have to be somewhere in particular to host one. In fact, you can even have your friends agree to do this from the comfort of their home. © Anchor We suggest using Anchor for podcasts. Anchor has been a popular choice for a lot of users across the globe for hosting podcasts. Although it's owned by Spotify, you can make your podcasts available across a lot of different platforms. Anchor now has a new feature called Record With Friends 2.0 with which it's making it easier than ever to record a podcast with your peers, even if they don't have the Anchor app. You can invite them to record podcasts via a link and it'll open for them on the web browser. This is by far the easiest way to record a podcast. It's almost like attending a video call on hangouts where you're simply clicking a link to join a call. Given the fact that most people are practicing social distancing, they might be interested in listening to something new and personal. You can also use this time to your advantage and start something meaningful. Source: Anchor View the full article

  5. Quaden is a nine-year-old kid from Brisbane, Australia. At his age, he should be thinking about making new friends, playing with new toys, finishing school assignments, playing in the school playground or maybe thinking about what different sandwich he can take for his new friends at school. But what Quaden is thinking instead is "Give me a knife so I can kill myself. I just want to stab myself in the heart. I want someone to kill me." He is only nine and yet he is so disheartened that he wants to kill himself. Why? Because he gets constantly bullied for his dwarfism and he can't take it anymore. Quaden is suffering from achondroplasia. In a video that has gone viral, an inconsolable Quaden is seen crying and wanting to kill himself as his mother, Yarraka Bayles talks about the impact that bullying has had on her kid. As more and more people started sharing the video asking him to stay strong, Qauden is now getting support from celebrities and reel-life superheroes with Hugh Jackman leading the 'friend request'. Wolverine aka Hugh Jackman shared a video on Twitter, where he tells Quaden to stay strong and that he'll always be his friend. "Quaden, you are stronger than you know, mate. And no matter what, you've got a friend in me." He also urged his fans that life is already hard enough so why should anyone go that far to hurt others, "please be kind to each other." He further said, "Bullying is not okay. Period. Life is hard enough. Let's just remember every person in front of us is facing the same kind of battle. So let's just be kind." Quaden - youâve got a friend in me. #BeKind @LokelaniHiga https://t.co/8dr3j2z8Sy pic.twitter.com/jyqtZYC953 â Hugh Jackman (@RealHughJackman) February 20, 2020 Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays villain 'Negan' in The Walking Dead also showed support to Quaden and said, "What I want you to know is that you have friends, me included. I am your buddy. You haven't met me yet, but we'll see if we can change that. Maybe your mom can DM me. You have a bunch of friends out here, out in the world that you haven't met yet. We're here, we got your back. You need to know that. It'll get better." Australia's National Rugby League (NRL) members too came forward to stand in solidarity with Quaden. UD Comedian Brad WIlliams too came to his support and started a GoFundMe page so that Quaden and his mother can come to the US and visit Disneyland. So far the page has raised $150,000. Bullying is NOT okay. It never was and it never will be okay to mock your friends, classmates or colleagues in the name of 'friendly banter'. Nothing can ever justify bullying. Childhood is a critical time for anyone. The things they learn, people they meet and the changes they go through shapes their personality and future. But, is participating in bullying and getting bullied the kind of future we want for our kids? It's time to give them the right education. View the full article
  6. The US is watching, says President Trump to IranWASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Sunday warned the "leaders of Iran" against killing their protesters, as protests against the Iranian leadership intensified across the country after Tehran admitted it had accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner. Read more: Iran says it unintentionally shot down Ukrainian plane amid soaring tensions after missile strike As protests continued in different cities across the country, Trump took to Twitter to warn Tehran that "the world is watching" and "more importantly, the US is watching." "To the leaders of Iran - DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!" he tweeted. Thousands took to the streets in Tehran to protest against the shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner on Wednesday when tensions soared between the US and Iran. Iran retaliated to a US drone strike ordered by Trump that killed Al Quds commander Qassem Soleimani, by firing a volley of ballistic missiles at two military bases in Iraq that housed American troops. Hours after the attack and as the Iranians braced for a possible US onslaught, the Ukrainian airliner crashed outside Tehran. Iran initially denied it had shot down the Ukrainian airliner. However, as the US and Canada urged Iran to come clean about the cause of the crash, a statement from the Iranian military accepted that the plane had been shot down by mistake. Officials said that the plane had flown close to a "sensitive military centre" and was mistaken for a "hostile target". The statement added that the military was at its "highest state of readiness" amid the US tensions. Scores of people took to the streets in Iran's major cities to chant slogans and protest against the regime, demanding the resignation of the supreme leader and President Rouhani. Clashes have broken out in various cities across the country as riot police sprung into action to quell the unrest. Internet access was reportedly cut off in multiple Iranian provinces ahead of memorials planned a month after the protests. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has demanded that Iran provide "full clarity" on the downing of the plane. Ottawa says the dead included 57 Canadians. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also offered his condolences and ordered the armed forces to address "shortcomings" so that such a disaster does not happen again.
  7. Australia is going through a severe drought amidst the wildfires and a lot of people and animals are paying for the unfortunate circumstances there, losing both lives and property. Animals too have succumbed to their fate as more than 500 million animals have died due to these bushfires, and many more will be injured or dead, till these fires stop. In all this madness, Australia has decided to kill about 10,000 camels, and we really can't understand why! © Twitter Thousands of camels will be shot dead from helicopters, as a result of extreme heat and drought. While the bushfires have been on for a few months now, the culling isn't dependant on that. They're being culled because of the drought situation prevailing in Australia currently and there are complaints that camels are endangering locals as they desperately search for water. "They are roaming the streets looking for water. We are worried about the safety of the young children" - a woman named Marita Baker, who lives in the community of Kanypi, told the BBC in an interview. The five-day cull has already begun and a lot of aboriginals have complained about camels damaging towns and building trying to look for water. Australia has hired a professional marksman, who will shoot the animals, and ironically, he comes from Australia's department of environment and water. They will eventually be slaughtered in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) area, which is a sparsely-populated part of South Australia which is home to a number of indigenous groups. © Twitter "There is extreme pressure on remote Aboriginal communities in the APY lands and their pastoral [livestock] operations as the camels search for water," says APY's general manager Richard King in an interview with BBC. "Given ongoing dry conditions and the large camel congregations threatening all of the main APY communities and infrastructure, immediate camel control is needed," he added. Camels, though, don't originally belong to Australia and are not native species. They were brought to Australia by British settlers from India, Afghanistan and the Middle East. Although we're not sure how many camels have made Australia their home, more than a hundred thousand camels inhabit parts of central Australia. They're believed to cause havoc in farmlands by damaging fences and farm property and are also believed to drink excess water which is needed by people who live there. And apparently, they also emit methane, a greenhouse gas which contributes to climate change. But even so, are these reasons good enough to kill animals, regardless of how they behave or how much they consume? Well, if that's the case, humans should stand in line next, ready to be executed! © Twitter While camel culling is absolutely unfair in Australia, there is nothing much we can do about it, except just watch and wait. Australia has lost a phenomenal amount of wildlife and even after such devastation, they're ready to kill some more of their animals, which says a lot about how humans actually handle sensitive situations, which need a strong scientific approach to it. But Australia alone has a history of culling its animals due to various circumstances, which we can't seem to overlook. Around 1932, Australia literally went into war with emus while soldiers armed with Lewis Guns were killing emus as they were causing too much havoc and crop destruction. Before seal culling was banned in 2018, Australia was a big advocate for killing seals due to the increased interaction of the long-nosed fur seal. And recently in 2013, Australia was culling (shooting) kangaroos, as the population of 500 million kangaroos was becoming an erstwhile problem for the Aussies. They killed 90 million Kangaroos and wallabies, lawfully, for commercial purposes. © Twitter Seemingly, the only way Australia can handle a crisis amongst the wildlife is by taking extreme measures and this time, 10,000 camels are targeted for the same. We really hope and wish Australia and other nations find a more respectful way of solving a crisis, that does not involve the specie to give its life for it. View the full article
  8. Separate assaults by the Taliban killed at least nine members of Afghan security forces. Photo: AFPAt least 23 Afghan security forces were killed in a series of Taliban attacks across the country, officials said Wednesday, despite winter snowfall that usually leads to a lull in violence. The assaults targeted vulnerable checkpoints in at least three northern provinces. In Balkh, militants stormed a checkpoint early Wednesday and killed at least seven police officers, according to provincial police chief Ajmal Fayez. He said reinforcements had been dispatched to the post, which is located on the strategic highway connecting Balkh to neighbouring Jawezjan province. Read more: Taliban say ‘no ceasefire plans’ for Afghanistan A Taliban spokesperson claimed that 11 police offices died in the attack, but Afzal Hadid — a member of the provincial council — put the death toll at nine, adding that four others were missing. "We are not sure whether these four police [officers] helped the Taliban in the attack or have been captured by them," he said. Separate assaults by the Taliban killed at least nine members of Afghan security forces in northeastern Kunduz, and seven in neighbouring Takhar province, officials said. The provincial spokesperson for Takhar said that at least 11 militants were killed as they attacked a security checkpoint in Darqad, close to the border with Tajikistan.
  9. Photo: FileKANDAHAR: Ten Afghan soldiers were killed in a Taliban attack on a military base in the southern province of Helmand on Saturday, officials said. The Taliban dug a tunnel into the base in volatile Sangin district and then blew it up before their fighters could attack the compound, Nawab Zadran a spokesman for 215 Maiwand Army Corps in southern Afghanistan told AFP. "There were 18 soldiers in the base at the time of the attack providing security for the people of Sangin. Four soldiers were wounded and four repelled the Taliban attack bravely," he said. Provincial spokesman Omar Zawak confirmed the attack and said the soldiers were killed by the powerful blast inside the base. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid in a statement sent to media claimed responsibility for the attack. The attack in Helmand comes as local and international forces brace for another deadly winter amid US-Taliban talks to end the violence in Afghanistan. On Tuesday, seven Afghan soldiers were killed in a Taliban attack on a base in the northern province of Balkh. Winter once marked a slowdown in the so-called "fighting season", with Taliban fighters returning to their villages while snow and ice made attacks more difficult to pull off. But in recent years, the distinction between seasons has all but vanished. Deadly violence continues to grip Afghanistan even as the US and the Taliban negotiate on-off talks aimed at reducing America's military footprint in the country in return for the insurgents ensuring an improved security situation.
  10. NEW DELHI: Police opened fire on hundreds of protesters in southern India on Thursday, killing two, an official said, as fresh violence erupted around the country over a contentious citizenship law critics say is anti-Muslim. The fatalities brought to eight the death toll from more than a week of unrest and came as authorities shut down internet and text messaging for tens of millions in India´s most-populous state. In the southern city of Mangalore, two men identified as Abdul Jalil, 49, and Samshir Kudroli, 23, "died in police firing during the protests", Qadir Shah, a spokesman for the deputy commissioner, told AFP. He said a curfew had been imposed in the city with schools, restaurants and bars shut. A third fatality was also reportedly linked to protests in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, where a man was hospitalised in Lucknow with a gunshot injury and died soon after, a hospital source told AFP. Police did not confirm the death, but his father told the Times of India his son was shot after getting caught in a crowd of protesters while out to buy groceries. Four others were being treated at a hospital in Mangalore "with bullet injuries following the clashes", a district medical officer told AFP. Deadly protests have broken out across India over a new law easing citizenship rules for people fleeing persecution from three neighbouring countries -- but not for Muslims. Seven months after Modi swept to a second term, the law has stoked accusations at home and abroad that he wants to reshape India as a Hindu nation, which he denies. The past week had already seen six people killed and dozens injured in the northeastern state of Assam. On Thursday, authorities had banned gatherings across swathes of the world´s biggest democracy including all of Uttar Pradesh and Bangalore, areas of the northeast and parts of Bihar, New Delhi, Hyderabad and Chennai. But that did not prevent tens of thousands from taking their anger onto the streets. - Internet cut - In Mangalore, Shah said police fired their weapons after some 200 demonstrators refused to stop their march. "They marched towards the busiest area of Mangalaru. This led to lathi (big, wooden sticks) charge. Then the tear gas was fired. When the protestors still didn´t stop, the police had to open fire after that," he said, using an alternate name for the city. Security forces and protesters also clashed in the states of Karnataka and Gujarat -- Modi´s home state where police said they baton-charged demonstrators and arrested 50 people. In Uttar Pradesh -- home to some 200 million people -- the government cut both mobile internet and SMS services after hundreds of protesters in the city of Samhbal set fire to vehicles and threw stones at security forces who responded with tear gas. In New Delhi, metro stations were shut down, while authorities ordered telecom firms to cut calls, text messages and data in parts of the city. Prominent rights activist Harsh Mander was detained in the capital, while in Bangalore the renowned historian Ramachandra Guha was among a number of protesters dragged onto a police bus. In the northeast, where the protests originated last week, around 20,000 people marched in different locations -- although this time no violence was reported. The day´s biggest demonstration took place in Malegaon district of Maharashtra state with as many as 60,000 people, police said. And a crowd of around 40,000 people in eastern West Bengal´s Kolkata city was led by the state´s chief minister Mamata Banerjee, a strong Modi critic. - ´Something has changed´ - In Mumbai, thousands including tattooed students and older Muslim men wearing skullcaps brandished Indian flags, posters of Mahatma Gandhi and handed out copies of the constitution. "Something has changed. This is the first time in a long time that people in Mumbai have come out in such large numbers to register dissent," said consultant Karishma V. The protests have been fuelled by anger about alleged police brutality including at a university in Delhi on Sunday night. Security forces in the capital have fired some 450 tear gas shells in the past five days, the Hindustan Times daily reported. One student reportedly lost an eye. The demonstrations in the city have at times turned violent with vehicles set on fire and protesters hurling stones at police in heavily Muslim areas on Wednesday. "If they show us the lathi (police baton), we will show them roses," a student in Delhi, Shivanji, told AFP as she handed flowers to police on Thursday.

  12. Owing to a violent partition, the prevailing Kashmir conflict, political and cross-border tensions, India and Pakistan, over the years, have developed a complex and largely hostile relationship. Their topsy-turvy relations have also given birth to one of the most extreme and intense sports rivalries in the world, making their duels in the sporting arena much more than just ordinary contests. The current scenario is no different. The recent cross-border strikes eradicated any hope of resuming the bilateral ties between the two countries. And, the sporting bodies of both India and Pakistan are now completely governed by the political stands of their respective governments. Ahead of the ongoing ICC World Cup in England & Wales, there were calls by some Indian political leaders and cricket pundits to boycott Pakistan at the mega event. But, luckily for the cricket fans, the calls for boycott subsided and the much-anticipated clash between India and Pakistan will go as planned on 15th June. © Reuters In a more recent case, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has sought permission from the government to host the Pakistani women's cricket team for a One-Day International (ODI) series this year. Now, given the current mood in the country, the decision to host Pakistan at home is expected to leave many baffled and disappointed, especially after what the nation endured earlier this year. The chorus of keeping politics and sports aside has been doing the rounds over the years. And, it does make sense. For the countries who can't seem to see eye-to-eye, what better way to mend tarnished relations than using cricket, a sport that grips the populations of the two countries, as a platform to bring people together. Now, while that might seem a little far-fetched at the moment, the latest plea of the Indian cricket board is more on the lines of safeguarding the interest of its women's cricket team, than going against the mood of the nation. © Reuters The BCCI is seeking the government's approval to host the Pakistani cricket team for an ODI series as a part of International Cricket Council's Women's Championship - a tournament that will determine India's qualification for the Women's World Cup in 2021. The ICC conducts the Women's Championship where teams need to play each other on a home and away basis. The points system of this tournament further determines the ranking of the teams to qualify for the World Cup. The likes of Australia, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka will be playing the ICC Women's Championship - a tournament that involves home and away tours over a span of two-and-a-half-years. The top four teams and hosts New Zealand will qualify directly for the ICC Women's World Cup in 2021. The remaining three teams will have fight for their World Cup spot in the Qualifier in 2020. © Reuters The Indian cricket board faces a tough challenge in getting the nod due to the prevailing political tensions between India and Pakistan which has prevented any bilateral series between the men's teams for six years now. In a letter sent to the sports ministry, BCCI general manager (cricket operations) Saba Karim explained the Indian cricket board's situation. "As per the schedule of the event, BCCI is to host Pakistan women's team for at least three ODIs in India between July and November. BCCI would like to seek necessary permission from the government for India before giving its consent to ICC on this subject," the letter, accessed by TOI, read. It remains to be seen whether India will have to forfeit points if the series is not cleared by the government, or the BCCI will host Pakistan at a neutral venue like UAE. But, if the government approves the bilateral series, it will not only help the Indian women's cricket team to stay in contention for a coveted tournament like the World Cup, but will also help in bridging the ever-increasing gap between the two neighbouring countries - a vital opportunity to kill two birds with a single stone.
  13. On May 24th, people working in and around sector 18 of Cyber City got the shock of their lives, when they saw a woman standing on the edge of a five-storey building's terrace. According to reports and the videos and pictures people clicked, the woman was threatening to jump off the building. © for representation Turns out, it was the woman's office building, and she took this extreme step because she was upset that she was fired. Reportedly, she works at a private consultancy firm and was upset and sad that she wasn't confirmed after her probation period got over. When her colleagues heard about it, they rushed to the terrace and tried persuading her to come down. She threatened that she will jump off if the office management didn't hire her back as a permanent employee. In some pictures and video, there's a man who carefully approaches her and convinces her to come off the edge. © Twitter Inspector Vivek Kundu, SHO of Sector 18 police station told The Times Of India, "On May 24, when she got to know that the company was not hiring her as a permanent employee, following the end of her probation period, she threatened to kill herself." The woman came down only after the company assured to hire her back. According to the company manager, she wasn't hired after her probation because her performance wasn't satisfactory. However, according to the woman she was being punished for standing up against the management since "they did not have the proper environment for women empowerment." To all those people reading this story, threatening to kill oneself is not a solution to any problem. If someone is unhappy with your performance, prove them wrong with your hard work, instead of taking such extreme measures to get your job back. Please do not try to recreate what this woman did, this is not cool at all.
  14. When social media became a 'thing', it was hailed as one of the biggest discoveries of modern times. People could re-trace their long-lost friendships, virtually reconnect with family separated by distance and 'keep-in-touch with friends and acquaintances by putting a personal piece of their life out there for the world to see, comment and sometimes, gain sadistic pleasure out of, at the expense of each other's pain and humiliation. © Getty Images Take for instance the recent disturbing incident in Kuala Lumpur, wherein a 16-old-year girl suffering from depression, jumped to her death after 67% of her Instagram followers voted for her to choose death over life, in a poll she held on her account. She had posted the poll with the headline, “Really Important, Help Me Choose D/L” where D reportedly stands for death and L for life. © Getty Images Can we please take a moment and acknowledge what has just happened here? A bunch of careless, sadistic individuals who felt all powerful when asked for an opinion pushed a young girl to her own death. We should cry bloody murder against all those who had the gall to participate in the poll, instead of actually reaching out to her and talking her out of it, or at least informing people who could have helped her out. People simply could not give two fucks about a person contemplating life and death, so please help me understand that if this isn't messed up, what is? © Getty Images People have become so insensitive on social media, that they never bother to step back and consider how their callous remarks can potentially destroy someone's life, their self-esteem and their very will to live. It's not a brand new development that this has been happening for a while now. So many people come under the bus because a bunch of people think they are entitled to an opinion (mostly unsolicited) which is best and unquestionable. © Getty Images These trolls, who are mostly faceless with fake usernames, sit in their dingy rooms and push a few buttons day in and day out to say things that gratify their personal sense of being, and bring down their target, one cruel word at a time. How long before we do something about how social media is quickly taking over our lives, to the point that we have come to associate our very existence and happiness to the number of likes or hate comments we receive from an unknown audience online? © Getty Images Sure, the 16-year-old was also at fault to have trusted her “followers” with something so precious as her life, but we must come forward debunk the belief that “our followers are Gods”. No, they are not. They are just individuals who simply come online to take a peek into our life and happiness. Some simply live off it as they are bereft of any joy in their own daily existence. Now, the Malaysian government is considering charging the participants in the girl's poll with the charge of “abetment to suicide”, and I feel they absolutely deserve it. People must be held accountable for their actions under all circumstances, and going virtual should not allow anyone to get away with all the painful things they say and do online. They are equally responsible as those doing and saying the same hurtful things in the real world. © Getty Images I am looking at all of you out there who love to dole out rape and death threats casually, sadistically cheer for online lynching and provoke online hate at random stangers simply because you don't “like” what someone is saying, doing, eating or wearing. Better look back and have some remorse about all the lives you have possibly destroyed in the time you've spent online as a hateful troll.
  15. The last and final battle in 'Game of Thrones' just got over and we wouldn't call it epic really. It was just chaos and fire, and loss of a lot of civilian life in King's Landing. All Dany needed, to get her throne, was Drogon and his lifetime supply of fire. Seriously though, can dragons really emit fire continuously and uncondtionally for like hours? Maybe Drogon is an evolved dragon species. Yes, there were flaws, like Jaime getting his right hand back, in the scene where he finally finds Cersei, or Snow getting a million dollars per episode to stand there and hold his sword and do nothing else. But in the larger scheme of things it was always decided that the eventual war will be at King's Landing, fighting the eventual enemy, who stood at the Red Keep window throughout sipping her wine, watching the city burn, till she decided to move away and die when the structure collapsed on her and Jaime. (c)HBO As you can see, I am fairly disappointed by how the entire story was patched together towards the end. None of the theories actually materialised and instead Dany's sudden transition to becoming the mad queen was so abrupt from her folk hero image, it actually put a rather bad taste in my mouth. But I still have some dreary hope left, I suppose. How and why? Well, there's one probable theory doing the rounds that can change things around for a little bit and give us the ending WE deserve. (c)HBO So, if you remember, Arya met the Red Woman aka Melisandre in season 3, where she predicted Arya will shut many eyes, mostly brown eyes, blue eyes and green eyes. At the time Arya wasn't sure what the woman meant but as the story progressed, Melisandre's prophecy started coming to light, as Arya became one of the best killers in Westeros, who was avenging the deaths in her family. Melisandre met Arya again at Winterfell, in episode 3 of season 8, and repeated the prophecy to her about shutting brown, green and blue eyes. And Arya killed the Night King who had blue eyes. Which means she's killed a number of people with brown eyes, the Night King with those glassy blue eyes and she's yet to kill someone with green eyes. (c)HBO Theory stated earlier that Arya would kill Cersei since she has green eyes and that's mentioned in the book too but unfortuantely Cersei died a lame death, while in the arms of her lover/brother, beneath the Red Keep. So, who else has green eyes that Arya needs to shut? (c)HBO In George RR Martin's 'A Song Of Ice & Fire', it's mentioned that Daenerys has purple eyes. A fact that didn't make it in to the television series, much like other important things. Off late, at least for the last two seasons, Dany's eye colour has definitely evolved. From a lighter shade of grey, it's going to green. Emilia Clarke has green eyes and she's not been wearing any lenses for the show, proving she could actually be the green eyed queen Arya eventually kills? both cersei and daenerys has green eyes by the way... hmmmmmmmmmmmm ð¤ pic.twitter.com/RcumP2wCbF — ð (@zuvarirsyad) 29 April 2019 Does anyone else feel like the close ups of Daenerys in this episode were designed to remind us that Dany has Green eyes? 'Brown eyes, Green eyes, Blue eyes.' Arya will stop the Kings Landing massacre, but which green eyed queen will she kill? #GamefThrones pic.twitter.com/BuSNfgc6D4 — Kerri (@Kerri_may) 6 May 2019 Well, Arya does have her reasons for attacking the queen. Let's see, first there's Dany's claim to the throne, which rightfully belongs to Jon. But because Arya's sworn to secrecy by Jon, she can't really tell people who he really is. But she can definitely help Sansa in making sure Jon is the rightful person for the throne. Secondly, did you even see what Dany did to King's Landing? She wreaked havoc by slaying every civilian and even her own army. Of course this has angered many people including Jon and Arya and we won't be surprised if either one of them, mostly Arya, kills Dany in the last episode, making the prophecy come true, finally.
  16. They say we must not challenge the laws of nature, yet more than often, we end up doing exactly the oppposite. At this point in civilisation, we seem to be obsessed with challenging nature. The same attitude of an American tourist visiting the Andaman and Nicobar Islands seems to have brought him to a tragic end. It is being reported that a 27-year-old American man named John Allen Chau has been killed by the local endangered tribe of the area. Arrows were shot at the victim who was taken to the North Sentinel Island, where the indigenous Sentinelese live. © Pinterest The Sentinelese tribe is well-known for resisting any interaction with the outside world, and as of 2011, their population was estimated at 40. Reports suggest that the tribes are facing a threat from outsiders, who often bribe the locals in order to gain access to them. Seven fishermen have been arrested in relation to the American's death, as they are allegedly responsible for taking the American to the area. An NDTV report states that the fishermen told the police that they last saw the American man being hits by numerous arrows after he landed on the island on November 16. © YouTube The report also quotes a source revealing disturbing details, “He was attacked by arrows but he continued walking. The fishermen saw the tribals tying a rope around his neck and dragging his body. They were scared and fled but returned next morning to find his body on the seashore," the source said. While this seems pretty scary, we feel that the man should have known better than to approach the tribe which is known to attack outsiders who try to interact with them. Regardless, do you think what the tribal people did is justified?
  17. Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Well, in fact, it's pretty much true when it comes to exercise and workout. Everybody has certain exercises that they don't like. People generally avoid exercises because of two reasons: either they fail to perform them or simply because it demands too much effort. But trust me, once you make peace with those exercises and start performing them, you will reach your goal faster. Burpees © YouTube I've never heard someone saying, burpees are fun! Even when I am on the floor training my clients, as soon as I tell them that today we are going to perform burpees, they start picking excuses. I personally don't love them too. The reason is simple enough: burpees take a lot of effort. They are tough because you are using so many muscles in a single exercise. Secondly, it is an exercise that builds up your explosive strength and power which majority of us suck at. However, it is a true test of fitness. Push-Ups © Thinkstock Images If you remember, pushups were used as punishment back in the day. How are you supposed to love something that's used as a punishment in your childhood? Even today I see people performing bench press but running away from pushups. Pushups are a very good body weight exercise for the upper body. Pushup uses your core, delts, pectorals and triceps which makes it another important multi muscle exercise. You can perform them easily at your home or a nearby park too. Not only will it help you build some real good strength but it will also help you build good endurance. Mountain Climbers © Coachmag If you've been to a boot camp, you would know that mountain climbers are a staple for any kind of camp. Another body weight exercise that works on your total body. The unique thing about this exercise is that it works simultaneously on various aspects of fitness like body balance, strength, agility and coordination. You work simultaneously on your core, delts, triceps , chest, quads and hip adductors. Use this exercise to build good core endurance in your body. Box Jumps © Pinterest How many people have you actually seen doing box jumps in your gym? I am sure the count is either zero or one. Majority of the crowd that you see these days is just obsessed with muscle pump to click a few selfies for their social media likes. Plyometrics is something that people don't even talk about these days, forget about training. Box jumps can help you build some good explosive strength by recruiting your fast twitch muscle fibers. Include them in your workout at least a couple of times per week to balance your hypertrophy with explosive strength. Sprinting © Thinkstock Images The most primitive yet effective way of exercise is running. However, I am not talking about your regular cardio jog on a treadmill. I am talking about performing some sprinting that will help your body become more agile and recruit faster twitch fibers. Including sprinting in your workout will help you increase the intensity of your workout while simultaneously increasing your agility.

  22. If someone ever questions your patience level, just remind them that you and millions of people waited for 2 years to get the answer to a single question – “Why did Katappa kill Baahubali?” I am sure I am not the only one who flooded my friends' inbox and the internet with every fan theory possible. © Arka Media Works I don't think we ever waited for our SO (significant other) as desperately as we waited for SS Rajamouli and 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion' to clear our doubts. And our minds were blown away when the real reason came out. © Arka Media Works 'Baahubali 2' did not only clear our doubts, it also gave us two of the strongest warriors (also brothers) from the kingdom of Mahishmati, who fought will all their might to win the country and the woman they love. With the success of the movie, Prabhas and Rana Daggubati's career skyrocketed towards success and while they were sworn enemies in the movie, their real-life camaraderie was something worth cherishing. © Instagram While we miss the movie, we are sure the actors don't feel any different and Bhallaladeva's recent throwback picture is proof of the same. Rana Daggubati shared a picture of the movie's script with the caption “#ThrowbackThursday This is where it all began!!” This throwback picture and other pictures of Baahubali and Bhallaladeva are making us wish for a third installment already. SS Rajamouli, are you listening? #ThrowbackThursday This is where it all began!! #baahubali pic.twitter.com/5qDPusDsEP — Rana Daggubati (@RanaDaggubati) June 28, 2018 Having said that, the fact remains that both the installments, of the magnum opus 'Baahubali' will continue to rule our hearts, unless someone else makes something more interesting or Rajamouli makes 'Baahubali 3'.

  24. The murder of an Army Major's wife shook the national capital on Sunday even as the police arrested the accused, another Army Major, from Meerut. The body of the Major's wife, identified as Shailja Dwivedi, was found on a road near Delhi Cantonment metro station in west Delhi. It was established after the investigation, that the body had been run over by a car multiple times and the victim's throat was slit with a knife. © Twitter The victim had apparently left for a physiotherapy session in an army vehicle with a driver. However, when the driver went to pick her up later, he couldn't locate her. The driver went back to the residence and informed her husband, Major Amit Dwivedi, who alarmed the police. The investigation later revealed that Shailja had been picked up by Major Nikhil Handa who was “obsessed” with her. He knew Shailja from Nagaland, where the victim and her husband were posted. Major Handa, the accused, is married with two kids. While it seemed like an accident from initial investigations, it was later revealed that Major Handa had pre-planned the murder. Two knives were found from his vehicle after the crime and it was later revealed that he had come to Delhi from Dimapur on the pretext of treatment. After committing the crime, Handa dodged the police like a hardened criminal. © Twitter "While crossing a toll plaza on way to Meerut, he took a U-turn near Daurala and went back after 30 minutes to avoid leaving a trail. He was very calm and composed when he met his brother after the murder and borrowed Rs 20,000 from him,” an investigator said. Call records showed that Handa called Shailja almost 3000 times this year and got irritated after she started ignoring and rejecting his calls. Even though he initially claimed that she was obsessed with him, the police clarified that Handa was frequently changing his statements and established that he was still obsessed with the victim.
