  1. New guidelines urge people who can to work from home; those who cannot must avoid public transport
  2. Among the victims was a veteran female constable with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police
  3. Every successful actor needs a smart makeup artist who is good at blurring out imperfections for shirtless/ naked scenes on screen. This, apart from all the working out is what makes them attractive on-screen. For Brad Pitt, it has always been Jean Ann Black, his make-up artist. In fact, when push came to shove, she even went ahead and colour corrected Brad Pitt's bum for a scene requirement on the sets of The Legends Of The Fall. © Reuters Considering Jean is like a 'sister' to Brad, imagine how awkward these bum colour correcting sessions maybe. The remodeling of the space, meanwhile, was a total surprise and was carried out when she was out of town for three weeks straight. The Scott brothers began remodeling her stand-alone garage in Santa Monica into a guest suite complete with bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom, as well as a make-up studio and storage unit, and Brad Pitt was happy to help make the project successful.

  4. Apparently, all the people who died because of Coronavirus could've just had haldi, nimbu, and rasam to prevent the deadly virus. Who knew? No, I'm not trying to be insensitive, I'm just showing the reality of the uncles of Twitter who have nothing better to do than pass off desi nuskhas like they're recommended by actual doctors and overall, just crack jokes on the virus that has claimed the lives of thousands of people so far. Yes, top doctors and scientists of the world are yet to find a cure for Coronavirus, but these desi uncles and aunties are rooting for things that everyone already has at their homes as the ultimate weapons, just because a Whatsapp forward told them so. On the bright side, there's no harm in consuming stuff like turmeric and lemon, but it's very dangerous to actually believe that it will make you immune to getting infected. But, all we can do is laugh at the Uncles of Twitter India, or as they have been dubbed, UTIs. Uncles of Twitter United pic.twitter.com/iTBweQWe7F â (((Dominique Fisherwoman))) (@AbbakkaHypatia) March 12, 2020 Okay, there's a lot to unpack here.

  7. Most men overlook the fact that the hair defines the way they look. So, even if you're well-groomed, are wearing the best of the clothes from your closet but your hair is frizzy, it'll definitely ruin everything. Often, we tend to not take care of our hair and that reflects in the bad hair quality in terms of dry, brittle hair. This is more often than not because we're not taking care of our hair, so here's why you should oil your hair, not just to improve your hair quality but also for other crucial benefits. 1. Nix The Frizz © Getty Images Hair oil is probably the best natural conditioner. In order to 'deep condition' your hair, oil your hair with coconut oil, then leave it on overnight, and wash it off with a mild shampoo the next day. 2. Hair Oil Can Also Be Soothing © Instagram/Ranveer Singh Slowly massaging hair oil helps in the better absorption of oil in the scalp. It also enables blood circulation which in turn is soothing. Oiling your hair also strengthens roots. 3. Fights Off Fungal And Bacterial Infections © Getty Images If you don't take care of your hair, your scalp especially becomes more prone to bacterial and fungal infections which reflects if you spot lice or dandruff among other visible signs. Regularly oiling your hair helps fight bacterial infections and goodness of the oil keeps the scalp hydrated. 4. Gives Hair a Natural Sheen © Getty Images Regular oiling nourishes your hair root deep. Oiling your hair, even post-wash leaves a natural sheen to your hair. So you can say goodbye to the frizz because with regular oiling, you won't be facing that anymore. 5. Nix The Dandruff Too © Getty Images One of the major reasons behind dandruff is a dry scalp. The dry scalp stretches and breaks, causing scabs and flakes that form dandruff. Dandruff cause itching on the scalp and at hair roots, inevitably resulting in hair breakage and hair fall. Massaging helps to keep the scalp nourished and to nix dandruff as well. So, this will definitely slow down the hair fall process. View the full article
  8. Flares are seen over the US Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, December 31, 2019. REUTERS/FilesBAGHDAD: Two rockets hit near the US embassy in Iraq's capital Sunday, witnesses told AFP, shortly after the deadline from a hardline pro-Iran faction for local troops to get away from US forces. The vehemently anti-American group, Kataeb Hezbollah, had warned Iraqi security forces to "get away" from US troops at joint bases across Iraq by 5PM (1400 GMT). Sunday's attack marks the 14th time rockets have been fired towards US installations in Iraq over the last two months.
  9. The West Freeway Church of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas. Google Maps/via NBC NewsAt least two people were killed and a third was in critical condition after a shooting at a church in the suburbs of Fort Worth, Texas, local media reported on Sunday. One person died at the scene of the shooting and one en route to the hospital, the Dallas Morning News said, citing a spokesperson for local emergency services. Authorities were rushing to the scene at White Settlement, a suburb northwest of Fort Worth, where the West Freeway Church of Christ is located, local media said. The Fort Worth Fire Department issued an “active threat” assignment at around 1730 GMT and was assisting operations at the scene, according to reports. A witness told a local CBS affiliate that a man armed with a shotgun walked up to a server during communion and opened fire, before being shot by a person attending the service. “You feel like your life is flashing before you. I was so worried about my little one,” a witness told the network. Authorities believe the attacker was among the three people shot but it was not known whether he had been killed or injured, CBS 11 reported. The shooting was captured on video as the church service was apparently being streamed on YouTube, according to the New York Daily News.
  10. While there are so many beard styles that men can choose from, it doesn't mean you always halt at the most tried ones. You can get out-of-the-box with your beard and style it the way you want. With so many unique facial hairstyles made for distinct face shapes, you can experiment with the one that looks good on you. On that note, check out these 4 beard styles that you can try at least once and make a statement with it. 1. Circle Beard Circle beard is a combination of a goatee and a moustache. The style looks tidy, classy and sleek and definitely makes for a great option when you wish to look presentable. This beard is the most suitable if you have a round face shape. Once you have grown a good amount of hair on your face, avoid trimming it. Head to your barber and get that perfect circle shape beard as doing it at home can be a bit tricky. Follow the usual trimming process once it starts growing out. © Getty Images 2. Garibaldi If you hate trimming or shaving, you are on the right track to achieve a Garibaldi for yourself. This one will be a bit shorter than your long beard and so all you need to do is a chop it a bit. It's a great beard style if you have rectangular face shape. All you need to do is grow your beard. Keep patience and let it grow. Once it has reached 15 cms, trim and give it a shape. Try to keep it around and make sure the moustache length matches well with your beard. Since it is a natural look, you won't need many styling tools. © Instagram/Suniel Shetty 3. Short Stubble Remember all the fade beard styles we saw in 2019? Well, that's going to be in rage even for the next year. This beard style is simplest of all and you can easily maintain it without any havoc. It looks neat and is definitely the one you should try, even if that means you need to bid adieu to your beard. In this case, don't shave your moustache and beard for a couple of days. Post that, trim it and keep it short. If you have hair above your cheeks, shave it in a way that it looks balanced on both sides. You can keep the stubble on your neck area as well. © Instagram/Virat Kohli 4. 5 O' Clock Shadow Another one, also known as designer stubble is a hit amongst all the beard styles. It is a full beard with along with a stubble. The style has a defined neckline and cheek line too. It's super easy to maintain and it works well with round or heart-shaped face. © Getty Images View the full article
  11. Typhoon Phanfone hit the Philippines late on Tuesday with winds of up to 120 kph along with heavy rain and flooding. Photo: AFPMANILA: A typhoon that swept across remote villages and popular tourist areas of the central Philippines on Christmas Day claimed at least 16 lives, authorities said Thursday. Typhoon Phanfone, with winds of 195 kilometres (120 miles) an hour, tore roofs off houses and toppled electric posts as it cut across the Philippines on Wednesday. With the internet and mobile phone networks still cut off in some badly damaged areas, a full assessment of Phanfone's damage was not immediately possible on Thursday morning. But at least 16 people had been confirmed killed in villages and towns in the Visayas, the central third of the Philippines, according to disaster agency officials. Phanfone also hit Boracay, Coron and other holiday destinations that are famed for their white-sand beaches and popular with foreign tourists. The airport at Kalibo, which services Boracay, was badly damaged, according to a Korean tourist who was stranded there and provided images to AFP. "Roads remain blocked, but some efforts have been made to clear away the damage. It's pretty bad," Jung Byung Joon said via Instagram messenger. Read also: Typhoon misery for Philippines on Christmas Day "Everything within 100 meters of the airport looks broken. There are a lot of frustrated people at the airport as flights have been cancelled. "Taxis are still running but it's windy and still raining so no one wants to leave the airport, including me. " Though much weaker, Phanfone tracked a similar path as Super Typhoon Haiyan — the country´s deadliest storm on record which left more than 7,300 people dead or missing in 2013. "It's like the younger sibling of Haiyan. It's less destructive, but it followed a similar path," Cindy Ferrer, an information officer at the Western Visayas region's disaster officer, told AFP. Tens of thousands of people in the mostly Catholic nation had been forced to evacuate their homes on Wednesday, ruining Christmas celebrations. Many others were not able to return to their families, with ferries and plane services suspended. Among those killed Phanfone was a police officer who was electrocuted by a toppled electric post while patrolling. The Philippines is the first major landmass facing the Pacific typhoon belt, and is hit by an average of about 20 major storms a year. Many of the storms are deadly, and they typically wipe out harvests, homes and infrastructure, keeping millions of people perennially poor.
  12. What is the most benevolent act of kindness you've performed recently? Most people like to make donations to equal out their part of service to society and that, indeed, is quite benevolent in itself. In Gwalior, India, though, things are a bit different. Here, if you make a donation, you get something in return. Not only is there apt validation for your benevolence upon making a donation, but there is also flawless cultural identification of the political structure existing in that state currently, which is quite visible too. What am I talking about? Well, in simpler words, if you want to attain a gun license in Gwalior, all you have to do is donate at least ten blankets to cows in any of the state-provided shelters. So, if you think the unabashed appreciation for cows by certain party's politicians couldn't get any worse, well, it already has. Anurag Chaudhary, the man behind this legendary 'exchange' offer, is the District Collector of Gwalior, incidentally a city which is infamous for having a history of dacoits and bandits. © Twitter So, what made the DC realise that cows needed protection from the cold as much as people needed a gun license in the city? Well, it was brought to Chaudhary's notice that six cows had died due to excessive cold, when he attended a meeting of cow vigilantes (gaurakshaks) last week. He then thought the best way to protect the most sacred animal considered in Hinduism and restore and make compassion mandatory, was to start a fair and civil gun license exchange for some warm blankets, for the cows. Because why else would people donate blankets, without any incentive, right? And since Gwalior has been the hotbed of violent activities in the past, the best thing to do would be to propagate more violence, by making firearms easily available. Because that's the only way people will truly care. About cows, at least. “People in Gwalior have a craze for arms. They need it for self-defence. Hence, once they donate blankets to get preference in getting arms licenses we will have more blankets for cows in the shelters. Earlier, our decision to ask such applicants to plant saplings yielded good results and as many as 17,000 saplings were planted for arms license seekers.” Anurag Chaudhary told a popular publication in an interview. © Twitter/New Indian Express Earlier, he had asked people to plant saplings and take selfies with their saplings, along with taking care of it for a month and in exchange, people would acquire a gun license. And since people are easily drawn into weaponry talks, they planted around 17,000 saplings and got a gun license as a reward for doing so. The same thing is now being repeating and it makes us wonder if the only way Gwalior knows how to progress socially is by normalising incentives that promote gun violence. Is that how functionality dwells in that part of the country? Which TBH is quite scary. © Twitter/New Indian Express The fact of the matter is that violence and arms have normalised their existence in the state of Madhya Pradesh and not because the government uses it as an incentive to work on different social causes for the upliftment of the state, but because in the Gwalior-Chambal area, keeping a gun is a way to flex one's power and respect in society. It's something that was inbred with the historic dacoit battles that lasted there for decades, and like any heroic norm, keeping a weapon became a sign of strength. But, politicians today access that piece of history to use gun license as a pawn to further the cause they care about and, of course, win a section of their incoming vote bank. While some authorities practice this so-called compassionate exchange offer, there are others in the state, like the electricity department in the neighbouring Morena, who don't encourage such practices. The electricity department in Morena has asked for guns to not be given to those who default on their electricity bill, as they often threaten power officials and continue to not pay them. So, you see, there is always a flipside and it will always be the case if you hand any violent form of power to people. © RSVP movies While saving animals and planting trees is the need of the hour and we're glad the city of Gwalior is doing their bit, we are sure incentives toward executing these causes can change. They can be more naturally driven than desensitising people towards violence in general. We really hope the government realises the tragic fallacy of this incentive and changes the way socially-relevant activities are conducted in the state, hereon. View the full article
  13. Just like every year, The Game Awards for 2019 took place earlier this week in Los Angeles, where the year's biggest games were celebrated.

  15. This week's 'Game Of Thrones' episode has people divided on whether Arya was old enough to have *** or not. © HBO Considering Arya Stark was 11 when the show started, she has literally grown up before our eyes. And for most of the fans, it only seems yesterday that she was this fierce little girl pretending to be a boy to survive. In fact, for a long time on the show, she was supposed to wear a strap and hide her breasts to make her look more man-like onscreen. For Maisie Williams, it was surprising for her to discover that she had a *** scene in the last season. For a while, she thought the screenwriters were pranking her by giving her a bogus script. © HBO And then, there were the hilarious fan reactions which you too would relate to, as people questioned if Arya was old enough to even have ***. But here's the thing, HBO is smart that way. And they had technically sent out a clarification in the form of a tweet that most of us missed. But here's something clarifying once and for all that she was, in fact, of age. By age 18 in Westeros you should have: - Had a pet. - Moved out on your own. - Travelled extensively. - Had a kill list. - Pretended to be the opposite *** to evade capture. - Been blind for a while. - Ticked at least three people off of your kill list. — HBO (@HBO_UK) April 21, 2019 That clarifies things. In fact, fellow actor Sophie Turner... © HBO also turned up in support for her on-screen sister Arya by posting this bizarre story on Instagram. why is no one on my tl talking about miss sophie referring to gendry as an easter bunny hop hop hopping into that PUSSAY? pic.twitter.com/aA9budFhwz — maia (@maia419) April 22, 2019 So, now you know. Arya is 18 in this season and her decision to have a hot steamy night with Gendry was completely valid.
  16. From the cliché saas-bahu dramas to really funny and practical shows, Indian TV series have come a long way! Gone are the days when female vamps with huge bindi were the only way to get TRPs. Now the audience wants something light, funny, and relatable. Thanks to the internet & the web series concept, we now have some really amazing shows which our generation can watch. Let's see how they're doing at IMDB as compared to other world-famous TV shows. Following are the top 5 Hindi TV series of IMDB with at least 10000 votes: 5. Sacred Games With 9.1 IMDB rating, it is standing at No. 5 among Indian TV series. This show really got us hooked, thanks to a gripping storyline and great direction. We got to see a fresh TV series concept which was wade in India. The series had some good thriller & nail-biting moments. The way it ended its first season & with the popularity it got, the show definitely deserves a second season. However, its fate is hanging due to the allegation against one of its writers. 4. TVF Pitchers With an IMDB rating of 9.2, this show came as a revolution in the Indian TV series industry. After 'Permanent Roommates' & 'Pitchers', we were blessed to have many other great series that were youth-centric. This is highly recommended if you just want to sit at home after office & have a couple of beers. 3. Yeh Meri Family With an IMDB rating of 9.7, more than 'GoT', this series is a gem! If you are a 90s kid who grew up in a middle-class family, this would be a trip back to your childhood. This series is about little struggles that we faced while growing up and how as a family we stuck together. Watch it to have a nostalgic time. 2. Flames A typical teenage romance! The burden of studies, tuitions, and that one cute girl in tuition – this series IS our past! With an IMDB rating of 9.8, this one is the second highest rated Indian series. You'll have to watch it to know why. 1. College Romance And the winner here is a typical college romance (as the name suggests). With an IMDB rating of 9.8, this one won many hearts. This is a story of friendship, love, fairy tales and reality. You can watch it to see the emotional adventures of three friends. Which one will you be finishing this weekend?
  17. We are no strangers to the gazillion superstitions our moms and grandparents seem to believe in. We have literally grown up watching them follow weird beliefs, some of which they even forced us to follow, whether we liked it or not. While most of us feel these beliefs are baseless, over the years a lot of people have managed to provide probable reasons as to why such superstitions are followed in our country so faithfully. Whether there is any truth in them or not, is not what we're about to discuss. Instead, our focus today is to take up a few, popular superstitions in our society that even men have followed at least once, at some point in time. Whether it was because you were young and gullible or because you fret over things going bad, no matter the reasons, you ended up believing it and gave in to this craziness. 1. Teen Tigada, Kaam Bigada © Excel entertainment Can we get over this one? This was such a regular during our playground meetups or when we divided up our teams for a match. Nobody wanted to add an extra third player for the fear of the rest of them screaming “teen tigada, kaam bigada” at the top of their voice. It kinda almost felt we might end up losing the match after all. 2. Kaali Billi Ne Rasta Kaat Diya, Ruk Jao Kisi Aur Ko Pehle Jaane Do © Flickr None of us can claim that this has never happened to us. It was as if ever since we came across this saying, all the black cats in the locality conspired to cross our path at all the wrong times. We still remember the fear it evoked when we had similar rendezvous on important days of exams and results. We ensured somebody else crossed the road ahead of us. 3. Mangalvaar Ko Maans-Macchi Nahi Khana © Twitter The no non-veg on Tuesday policy is so strong, some of us still follow it without second thoughts. Turning vegetarian every Tuesday seemed absurd, yet unknowingly consuming non-vegetarian food on the day would give us the most terrorising mini heart attacks. 4. Mangalvaar Aur Guruvaar Ko Baal Matt Kaatna © Instagram No haircut or shave on Tuesdays and Thursdays is another one that mothers ensured their kids followed with no questions asked. Of course, all of us have been tempted to break the rule and see what might happen. Some have even dared to go ahead with it, but the fear of the unknown in these situations is for real. 5. Number 13 Ka Prakop © Maxpixel Though most people say it is a western belief, this superstition finds a lot of takers in India too. From the fear of Friday the 13th to some people avoiding rooms and house numbers with the double-digit, 13 evokes a pretty creepy feeling when you think of it. Bad luck or not, everybody wants to stay away from it. 6. Itni Saari Hichki? Pakka Koi Yaad Kar Raha Hai © Vinod chopra films Even though it is mostly the ladies in our lives who say it, repeating it often almost makes us think that there is some truth to it. It is said that sudden hiccups mean someone is thinking of you and a series of them would quickly catch people's attention. However, when they repeated this a few times over, it made us really consider who might be thinking of us right that very moment. Our crush, hopefully? 7. Haath Mein Khujli, Paise Milenge! © T-Series This one is pretty common too. We have heard a lot of people say it and many people believe it too. An itchy left palm is said to be an indication of monetary profit, and well, who wouldn't love that? This one is something that many of us would gladly like to believe. 8. Raat Ko Peepal Ke Ped Ke Aas Paas Nahi Ghumna Chaiye © Clean Slate Films This one sounded so spooky when we were little. Yes, there were times when we really wanted to confirm those ghost stories, of Peepal trees being haunted by ghosts, but we wonder how many really did go in the dead of the night to confirm this. It seems funny now that the mighty tree could scare us once, right? Tell us, which ones did you believe in? Be honest.

  19. We often complain about not having enough speed on 4G smartphones, however, have you ever wondered if we never had access to it at all? Cuba, a hardened communist community never allowed access to mobile internet, and has finally started to roll it out to its citizens. © Pexels It's a huge step for the little Caribbean island country that has a population of 11.5 million people. The national telecom firm, ETECSA plans to roll out access to the service by the end of 2018. At least half of the country's population will get access to mobile internet before the end of the year. Before the eventual rollout, it is prudent to point out that most of Cuba's citizens relied on a local service called “El Paquete Semanal” (the Weekly Package) to receive world news. Citizens would also resort to YouTube videos, smartphone apps and pirated movies through data traffickers that would cost money every week. © Youtube Cuba has always restricted access to the internet services and Reuters reports that until 2013, one could only get online by visiting select hotels. The connectivity would always be slow and cost $2 an hour. As of now, there are nearly 400 government run Wi-Fi hotspots available for citizens as well as cybercafes. In the past, Cubans have been able to gain access to the internet for their homes, however, even they are being asked to wait. © Pexels But not everything is rosy, as Cuba only has 3G mobile internet available as of now, which means that Cubans will not have access to the high-speed mobile internet like we get here in India. Data packages also cost a lot in Cuba as embassies reportedly pay $45 a month for 4G of data. That is an extremely high tariff considering the average state monthly wage is $30. When compared to India, some of the lowest tariff rates in the world are offered for 4G internet plans, where companies like Jio have been able to disrupt the market. It is expected that as mobile internet is made readily available for Cuba's citizens, prices are expected to drop soon. Source: Reuters
