  1. Anushka Sharma has finally signed her next film after her last film, Zero, failed to impress the audience. According to reports, in her next, she might pair up with Hrithik Roshan for the first time. The film is reportedly titled Seven, which is also said to be the remake of the 1982 hit, Satte Pe Satta. View this post on Instagram Can't hear the hatersðð»ðð A post shared by AnushkaSharma1588 (@anushkasharma) on Oct 19, 2019 at 9:56am PDT Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty are coming together for this highly speculated film. Also, Farah recently spoke to IANS in an interview, and said, “Rohit is producing the film and I am directing it. Unless we come together and make a proper official announcement, everything is speculation." "Hopefully, we will make the announcement by Diwali. I am waiting for Rohit, because he is quite occupied these days, finishing the last leg of the shooting of his film Sooryavanshi," she added. View this post on Instagram Contemplating my next move to win the #War! ð A post shared by Hrithik Roshan (@hrithikroshan) on Sep 5, 2019 at 5:39am PDT Satte Pe Satta starred Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini in titular roles and was one of the much acclaimed movies of that time. The film revolved around the story of seven orphaned brothers who live in chaos until one falls in love with a nurse. Meanwhile, Hrithik recently also hinted at his next project which is a Rakesh Roshan directorial Krrish 4. Also, the actor's latest film, War is set to cross the Rs. 300 crore mark at the box office.

  2. It's true when they say “words once spoken never die”, and that becomes all the more relevant today because of how active and eternal the WWW is. In this age of fast internet and ever-buzzing social media, every spoken and written word gets documented for posterity whether we like it or not. © SLB Films Bollywood khiladi Akshay Kumar recently got a taste of this phenomenon when a single comment from a 7-year-old interview was dug up and circulated on social media platforms to publicly shame the actor for his 'misogynistic' comment. Now, actress Sonakshi Sinha has come forward to defend Akshay, who had made the said comment as a retort to her being body-shamed right from the beginning of her career. But before we go any further, let's take a look at what exactly had Akshay said. © SLB Films Defending Sonakshi against comments about her weight, Akshay had said, “Sonakshi is a wonderful actress who has her own style of acting. She has an absolutely different figure – a typical, Indian figure and not size zero. Khaate peete gharane ki lagti hai. I am a pure Punjabi. I like heroines who are hari bhari. Chusa hua aam na lage..” © SLB Films Now, the last part of that comment did sit well with a lot of people who are calling Akshay out on his misogyny. And while Sonakshi told HT the trolls have nothing better to do in life, she also added that she has no qualms about what was said and how, because “he was being a gentleman and defending me with no intention of 'objectifying' anyone.” © SLB Films Now, now Sonakshi, more power to every gentleman and friend out there who consider it their prerogative to 'defend' their female friends but not when the defence is put up for one woman at the cost of demeaning another. By trying to normalise a “hari bhari” figure and disregarding the “chusa hua aam” is pretty much siding with the lesser of the two evils, because Akshay still ended up body-shaming all those women who are 'too thin', 'machis ki tilli' or 'anorexic' for a judgemental and short-sighted society like ours.
  3. Ayushmann Khurrana has had quite a run in the Hindi film industry so far. With some real big hits last year to his name, and as many as five films lined up over the next couple of months, it seems 2019 and 2020 will be equally promising for the 'Andhadhun' actor whose latest release 'Article 15' has received a lot of critical acclaim. © Viacom 18 However, talking about the upcoming movies featuring Ayushmann, we have some latest developments to share with you guys on the sequel of Ayushmann Khurrana-Bhumi Pednekar starrer 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan'. © Eros International Set to be helmed by Hitesh Kewalya under the aegis of producer Aanand L Rai, the film is all set to be called 'Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan' and will be no where close to the previous film which dealt with the issue of erectile dysfunction and how relationships revolve around it. On the other hand, 'Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan' is going to be a coming-of-age gay love story that would trace the journey of a conservative family that tries to come to terms with the fact that their son is gay. View this post on Instagram #Article15 in theatres on 28th June 2019 A post shared by Ayushmann Khurrana (@ayushmannk) on Apr 30, 2019 at 8:34am PDT While we already knew Ayushmann will be seen in the lead role, tabloids couldn't sit still until they found out about Ayushmann's love interest in the film. And because we do not like to keep you in the dark about anything, here's what we know about it.

The makers wanted a relatively fresh face and after doing the rounds of auditions, Jitendra fitted all the bills.

  4. While the Indian cricket team is set to finally make their ICC World Cup 2019 debut against Faf du Plessis' Team South Africa at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground in Hampshire the news of an alternate jersey for Virat Kohli's boys is making rounds in the cricketing world. "For televised ICC events all participating teams will be required to provide for two different coloured kits, except for the host country who has a preference in the choice of colour and may, if it chooses to do so, provide only one coloured kit to be worn in all matches throughout the event. In advance of the event the teams will be notified which coloured kit will be worn in each match," the ICC had said in a release. In essence, during the Cricket World Cup 2019, the hosts ie; Eoin Morgan's Team England have the luxury to play in their traditional 1992 World Cup throwback jersey which is light blue in colour. The Men in Blue, ironically enough, will be wearing their alternate jersey which is being speculated to be orange with dark blue designs all over. Abiding by this new rule made by the ICC, countries such as Bangladesh and South Africa have already released their second kit: Who else is excited about the World Cup ? :) pic.twitter.com/PyiBKPHRud — Tamim Iqbal Khan (@TamimOfficial28) May 25, 2019 Team India however have managed to maintain a sense of suspense about their new look. "The BCCI marketing team is still working on the design and the jersey will be unveiled very soon," a BCCI source told PTI. Having said that, IANS has released a tentative design for the new look that India might wear against their match against the World Cup hosts on 30th June 2019. Credit: IANS And while people are presuming this orange jersey to be Team India's 'away kit', IANS quoted a source saying: "There has been a lot of talks and speculation and people have been calling it an away jersey. But it isn't. It is an alternate jersey that the team will wear when they play England on June 30. As per the new rules, the hosts get to retain their jersey colour when they play an ICC event. Since India also have a blue jersey like England, there is a slight change in colour.” Ever since 1992, Team India has been known to don blue jerseys in the shorter formats of the game with slight modifications being made to the uniform every year ever since. Sure, blue is one of the more popular colours in the sporting fraternity but the Bleed Blue squad has established a sense of ownership to the colour with their brilliance on a cricketing field. Watching them play in a different shade will surely be an uncanny experience but hey, change is always good, right?
  5. Ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019 matchup between West Indies and Pakistan, we called both the teams two of the most unpredictable sides of the tournament who could either do exceedingly well and look like world champions or crash and burn like test dummies. Now, after experiencing the way things went down during the game, it would be an educated guess to say which side played like the kings and the other, their squires. Sarfaraz Ahmed's squad began their 2019 World Cup journey with one of the worst performances in cricketing history for the country. Scoring a total of 105 runs before getting all out in the 22nd over of their innings and thanks to Chirs 'Universe Boss' Gayle's crackling start to the Windies innings, the Carrabean stars were able to wrap up the game quickly and enjoy their evening celebrating the easy win. Credit: Reuters With some of their top batsmen like Imam-ul-Haq, Haris Sohail and the skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, himself returning back to the pavilion with their score in single digits, it seems as if, Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate, is their only hope. The 21-year-old seems to be ahead of the Pakistani cricket team in both, batting skills and the confidence to banter against a team like India. She displayed her prowess in both departments during the opening event of the Cricket World Cup 2019 during the '60-Second Challenge' in which two representatives from every participating nation were to score the maximum number of runs in a minute. Representing Pakistan were Malala and cricketer Azhar Ali and finished second from the bottom. The Indian duo of Bollywood fame Farhan Akhtar and former Indian head coach Anil Kumble were not in their top form and finished rock bottom at the event. Credit: Twitter “I really enjoyed playing here today. We were okay, not too bad… but India came last,” the Nobel Prize winner had said after the challenge got over. Now, the way the national team of Pakistan played against Jason Holder's boys, it might not be a bad idea to give Malala and her batting skills a shot in the next game and it is something the people of the Twitter world agree on, as well: Cant believe Malala Scored better than Farhan Azimi in Street Cricket Contest. #PakvWI — John Wick (@malikasimriaz) May 30, 2019 #PAKvWI @windiescricket will win definitely in style..â @TheRealPCB Need batting performance of @Malala to winðð — bhavesh kumar shakey (@Shakeybhavesh) May 31, 2019 Dont blame us for this batting performance.

  6. As a frequent flier who took close to 100 flights a year for the last many years, the quality of service with Jet Airways and its erstwhile competitor Kingfisher Airlines was a privilege taken for granted. However, with both these privileges going bust, it is only a matter of time before the hungry budget carriers devise new ways to grab an extra share of their reluctant passenger's wallets. The following is a list of perks which you might have to cough up money for on a flight in the near future: 1. Pay To Not Go Standing Imagine boarding a flight and realising you are on the fast local from Virar to Churchgate. A vehicle where every millimetre has a human along with his laptop cramped in. You should not fret at this thought as money can come to your rescue; for a mere Rs. 600 you can get a seat. And another Rs. 600, you can get a seat of your choice! 2. Pay To Not Get Beaten Up By The Crew In my opinion, this is one avenue for which anyone should be ready to dole out a fee. For a flat fee of Rs. 600, you can be rest assured no crew member will punch, kick or spit on you during the entire flight. Don't pay the sum and there is a probability of a broken jaw, neck or a random bone at the end of the flight! The only consolation is that your broken part of the body might go viral on the twitter handle of the carrier for excellent customer service! 3. Pay To Access The Toilet And Not Bring Your Own 'Lota' This is the avenue where the airlines will eventually mint millions; providing access to the washroom. Given this right is fundamental to human existence, the monetisation of this access is fairly nuanced. Pay Rs. 500 and get 5-minute access to the washroom. However, at this base membership fee, there won't be water in the washroom. You will have to carry your own 'lota' (water container) through the passage as your fellow passengers will be fully aware of your tummy condition. However, for another Rs. 500, there will be a supply of water in the washroom. On festive days, there might be soap too! And if your airline is extremely generous, no crew member will bang on the door screaming out, 'jaldi karo'! 4. Pay To Be Greeted By A Smiling Air-Hostess Who wouldn't want to be greeted with a sophisticated 'how are you sir' by a petite airline beauty when you enter the plane? Going forward, there is a possibility this too might come at a price! For complimentary entry, you will be greeted by a brusque, 'kaisa hain kutte ke bachche' (no translation needed) whereas Rs 500 dole out will ensure a polite greeting without any stinging abuses! 5. Pay To Not Eat The Most Rotten Food On Air It is believed that the well-cooked meals served on budget carriers are usually leftovers from Delhi weddings which even the stray dogs refused to feast on. I am quite sure this is not true. For a base membership of Rs. 300, the food served will end up only in loose motions that last a day. For a premium membership of Rs. 1000, you will be served bread and cheese that will not damage any body organ of yours! 6. Pay To Get Your Luggage With Minimal Damage Spiritual and religious books have always maintained that man came with nothing and will end up going with nothing. Airlines have taken this one step further; without any additional charge, you can be rest assured that most valuable items of yours can go missing on a flight. However for a fee of Rs. 850, you can be reasonably guaranteed that your ill-fitting inner wear might reach you intact. 7. Pay To Have The Ability To Raise A Complaint Airlines get very cagey when they realise you want to complain against them for poor service or lost baggage. It is easier to get your father in law to write off his entire wealth to you rather than get an airline crew member to give you access to a complaint form. However, given that amazing customer experience is the new talk of the town, airlines are modernising this part of superior customer experience. You can actually complain against an airline for poor service for a meagre amount of Rs. 7,500. True value for money, isn't it? 8. Pay To Not Sit Next To A Pesky Passenger We have all been in flights with lovely co-passengers; the perverted uncle, the bawling baby, the auntie hell-bent on getting you married to her relative, the grumpy executive bellowing and burping all through the flight. Going forward, airlines might give you the option to choose your neighbours. For a neat amount of Rs. 4000, you can choose to sit next to a person of your choice in case they don't have an issue with you. Sounds like Tinder 35,000 feet above sea level, doesn't it? 9. Pay To Make Your Neighbours Smell Your Aromatic Socks An old adage goes, 'a man is measured by the stinkiness of his unwashed socks'. Who wouldn't want to flaunt his hard earned, well maintained stinky socks to his co-passengers? Like most lunches, such an act of manhood doesn't come for free. A simple payment of Rs. 1300 can ensure the entire crew is actively smelling your stinky socks and garnishing you with lavish praise! 10. Pay Not To Listen To Bhojpuri Mega-Chart Busters On A 6 Am Flight! Airlines make a constant endeavour to keep their passengers relaxed during flight transits. While some of them switch off the lights and advice their air hostesses to not giggle loudly, others try to achieve the same objective by playing the latest Bhojpuri chartbusters early morning. After all, even coffee cannot beat the night blues compared to the pelvic-thrusting, hip-gyrating beats of the latest chartbuster 'Lalaiya chusa raja ji'. For the not so musically refined, a simple one-time payment of Rs. 850 can turn off the melodious harmony! In conclusion, while some of you might land up in depression at the thought of the above state of affairs, it is only a matter of time before you get used to it. As an eternal optimist, I am grateful that they are not making me hold on the wheel while they are 35,000 feet above the sea level! You should be too!
  7. There were certain deaths in episode 5, Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' that didn't make much sense to us, to be honest. For instance, after so many theories spiralling out of control over Cersei's death, she eventually died when the Red Keep structure fell on her and Jaime. Which is a little problematic because you don't build a character arc with so much tenacity and make it fall flat on its face (quite literally) towards the end. © HBO Although both of them were shown holding each other and dying, some ardent fans feel Jaime Lannister might be alive, still and will come back in the last episode. The fan that made this prediction, backed it up with some logical evidence and believe it or not, it really does make sense. © HBO A user on Tumblr, 'WeedsAreFlowersToo', put together a pretty compelling case about how the 'Kingslayer' could still be alive. She was rather sad about his death at first but the more she delved into facts, the more sense it made to us. First off, she said, none of the cast members really wrote a 'goodbye piece' for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, aka Ser Jaime Lannister. If you check out Instagram posts from the cast members of GoT, you will see each one of them has written a beautiful eulogy of sorts for the characters who've died, especially the ones they've worked with closely. But there was nothing for Nikolaj, from anyone. Especially Cersei, who has spent a maximum amount of screen-time with him. Even Nik didn't acknowledge the death of his character, someone he's played, for the past 8 years of his life! Here's what the Tumblr user said: "Why isn't ANYONE acknowledging that Jaime Lannister just died??? Why is nobody in the cast thanking Nik for his performance? Why did Pilou (Euron Greyjoy) and Lena's (Cersei Lannister) insta post not say anything about Jaime dying? Why isn't Nik saying anything about what he thinks of the scene? Why did he make a post saying goodbye to Lena, and not to the character he played for 8 years? Why is there no talk of Jaime's death in the game revealed?" Right? Makes a little bit of sense doesn't it. That's not all though. Here's Nik's post after the 5th episode: View this post on Instagram The best, sweetest most wonderful sister from another mother @iamlenaheadey . That was a fun decade ð A post shared by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (@nikolajwilliamcw) on May 13, 2019 at 4:34pm PDT He just goes on to say Cersei was the sweetest sister from another mother and nothing else. Here's Lena's post for Jaime. No goodbye whatsoever! View this post on Instagram When @nikolajwilliamcw and I wore jellyfish ... I fucking love you ya big weirdo ðððð A post shared by Lena Headey (@iamlenaheadey) on May 13, 2019 at 11:33pm PDT This is Lena's post for Nathalia aka Missandei, when she dies in the show: View this post on Instagram Beautiful @nathalieemmanuel You represented hope and true strength. I didn't like that day up there ð¥°ð¥°ð¥°ð¥°ð¥° A post shared by Lena Headey (@iamlenaheadey) on May 13, 2019 at 11:23pm PDT See the difference? Alright, not convinced? The user's next piece of evidence has something to do with a writer from Entertainment Weekly. James Hibberd has been doing exit interviews with most cast members who've died in Season 8 of the show. He did one with Rory McCann aka The Hound and one with Lena Headey, aka Cersei Lannister. When someone asked about an exit interview with Nikolaj, here's what he had to say: Thanks! Holding that one for a bit... — James Hibberd (@JamesHibberd) 14 May 2019 That's rather strange. Why has he kept supposed dead Jaime's interview on hold? "Apparently James Hibberd [the EW editor] also said there was a character he was surprised to see alive in episode 6. I don't think there is any other character at this point that we would be shocked to see alive except Jaime. Prove me wrong." WeedsAreFlowersToo added. She also pointed out another interesting fact. Gwendoline Christie, the actress who plays Brienne of Tarth, didn't say anything when Jaime died, anywhere on social media, which is weird because they've had some rather intense scenes together since Season 3! She did put a throwback picture of him on Instagram, but didn't write anything about his death, or bid him adieu! View this post on Instagram HAPPIER TIMES. 2014. @nikolajwilliamcw ðâï¸ @gameofthrones A post shared by Gwendoline Christie (@gwendolineuniverse) on May 6, 2019 at 2:28pm PDT Either, we're absolutely desperate for an important character to come back alive and give us closure for all that writing gone bad or all these facts really do amount to something interesting. But if he does come back, it'll be the most crazy and absurd character revival ever. Imagine walking back into the show with a couple of stab wounds and an entire structure falling on you! Can't wait to see how it unfolds on 20th May, 2019!
  8. Warning: if you haven't seen 'The Bells', that is Season 8 Episode 5 of 'Game of Thrones', you probably shouldn't read ahead. Westeros was reduced to rubble so that Daenerys Targaryen could sit on the Iron Throne, making everyone question what is the point of anything at all? Who will she even rule if the people she would potentially lord over, don't even exist? © HBO But besides her, everyone else was visibly and significantly traumatised except maybe Greyworm, who was too busy avenging his girlfriend's death. © HBO Arya Stark came with a very specific purpose to King's Landing: murdering Cersei and crossing her off the list. Oh well, we know how well that turned out. © HBO But by the end of the episode, by the looks of it, she has probably escaped death again by an inch or so. And if Cersei is now not on her list, is she going to target Dany? Considering Melisandre's prophecy which also spoke of a certain someone with 'green eyes' that Arya was to shut forever, turns out Dany, ahem... fits the category. And here's how she definitely has the motive to kill Dany, now especially after trying to save Nora, the woman who was trying to protect her daughter. Nora and her daughter's death has significantly impacted Arya. Especially after seeing them being burnt alive by Drogon leaving their charred bodies still in the stupor in which they were trying to save themselves. She also realizes, not just the futility of this excessive violence, but the harrowing aftermath that is going to strike the survivors of the burnt city. She then encounters a half-burnt white horse that rescues her from the burning city. But here's the thing, the horse has a hidden symbolic meaning behind it: In the 'GoT' world, a pale horse is symbolic of the bloody flux of what those in Mereen refer to as dysentery that strikes people like the plague and kills hundreds in one strike, which can be further analysed as the face of Death. Not just 'Game of Thrones', the Bible too has a reference of a pale horse that represents impending death. © HBO In Revelations 6:8, a line reads: “I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him.” But even if we assume that the show makers aren't influenced by Biblical notions on the show, there is evidence that suggests otherwise. In Season 2, Dany was warned about a pale mare amongst other things by a masked woman called Quaithe. In riddles, this woman told Dany, “To go north, you must go south…”. In the book, A Dance with Dragons, Quaithe warns Dany, “The glass candles are burning. Soon comes the pale mare, and after her the others. Kraken and dark flame, lion and griffin, the sun's son and the mummer's dragon. Trust none of them. Remember the Undying. Beware the perfumed seneschal." © HBO Clearly, there were a lot of people that Dany had to watch out for from Quaithe's tricky riddles, but something that starkly stands out now with all this context is the pale mare. But that's the thing about prophecies and 'Game of Thrones', they can be rather unpredictable and surprise us out of nowhere. But the looming connection of the pale mare and Arya is definitely noteworthy.
  9. Today's episode of 'Game Of Thrones' was a mental preparation for fans to be ready for the major 'Dracarys' heatwave that is going to come in the next two episodes. Queen Khaleesi is mad for the Iron Throne right now, but giving her tough competition is the self-proclaimed heir, Cersei Lannister. Everyone knows the evil queen is a master of manipulation and has a lot of tricks up her sleeve. © HBO Now, there's a new theory that has emerged after today's episode, about Sansa having an epic face-off with Cersei. She is the unofficial queen of Winterfell and people believe that the 'queen' being talked about in Cersei's prophecy is Sansa and not the Dragon Queen. According to the prophecy, Cersei will lose her children and will rule until “another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear.” Also, Sansa has not killed anyone, yet, so there is a chance that she will get a strong storyline and maybe, the throne as well. If you think about it, she has learnt her art of manipulation and diplomacy from the cruellest minds around her, including Cersei herself. © HBO Jon has cheated death way too many times to remain lucky until the end, Dany is going crazy and will be a very predictable heir and Arya, well, she has no interest in getting the throne. While all these major characters have been sharpening their physical and fighting skills all this while, Sansa, on the other hand, has been acing a mental war and gaining popularity for her way of handling situations. Now, it will be very interesting to see if goes head to head with Cersei.
  10. I feel like the pressure on 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' is simply increasing by the day, because it's the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to come out after 'Avengers: Endgame'. Imagine you're in a talent competition and you find out you're going after say, Beyonce! And, no, this is not me hating on 'Spider-Man', that's not the case. Just stating a fact. But, we know the movie will do good because people love Tom Holland and his portrayal of Peter Parker. But, since it's coming out so soon after 'Endgame', it is bound to be connected to the movie, especially since Peter Parker is basically Tony Stark's 'ward'. Since it's confirmed that the events of 'Far From Home' take place shortly after the events of 'Endgame', it's not just the movie that will have spoilers for 'Endgame', but the trailer as well. Reportedly, the next trailer for 'Far From Home' - which is expected to drop on 6th May - might contain spoilers about 'Avengers: Endgame'. And, Marvel has reportedly decided to be nice for once and put a spoiler warning before the trailer, and Tom Holland himself will do the honours of that. Apparently, right before the trailer, a clip of Tom Holland will come and warn people about the spoilers. Yes, I see the irony, Tom Holland, the guy infamous for giving spoilers, will give a spoiler warning. 'ENDGAME' SPOILERS AHEAD I think it's safe to assume that 'Far From Home' will have Peter mourning and coping with Tony Stark's death but will they bring that right up in the trailer? Quite possible. Or maybe, the trailer will show that some people at Peter's school are now five years older, since it's not possible that every single one of them disintegrated after 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Side note: How is it possible that all of Peter's friends got disintegrated and then came back? I mean, it was a random selection of half the population but all of them seem to be back and are the same age, while we saw in 'Endgame' that everyone else who didn't turn to dust was five years older now. Is this a possible plot hole? Also, Marvel, please don't show Peter crying because of Tony's death, it'll be too hard to deal with. One more possibility for the 'Endgame' connection in 'Far From Home' is Mysterio's abilities, which include special effects and illusions, so what if he uses Tony, to manipulate Peter? That seems quite possible but it's also so brutal. Whatever it is, we'll just have to wait till Monday to find out. 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' will release on July 2nd.
  11. Apple has already launched an updated version of AirPods, however, new reports suggest that another version is all set to launch later this year. The report also suggests some upgrades that have been expected for a while. © MensXP The next-generation of AirPods are said to have active noise cancellation and may launch before the end of this year. The minor update on the new AirPods comes with a new H1 Chip that lets users launch Siri by simply saying 'Hey Siri'. We can be sure that the next-gen AirPods are expected to come with a similar chip. According to the report by Digitimes, sources in supply chain say that the new AirPods will offer a better audio experience for customers who don't mind paying a premium. The new AirPods are not said to replace the current generation of wireless earbuds but may just be another offering in Apple's audio portfolio. © Unsplash If the rumours are true, the new noise-cancelling AirPods will be more expensive than the current models. Active Noise Cancellation feature generally adds to the cost and rivals like the Sony WF-1000X is also priced higher. This is not the first time we've heard about noise-cancelling AirPods as rumours have been floating around for a while. Previous rumours have suggested that the new AirPods will come with heart rate and body temperature tracking along with other health tracking features. Other rumours suggest that the new AirPods will also come in a black variant which we really want to come true. Needless to say, these rumours cannot be verified until the new AirPods are officially launched by Apple. Having said that, the rumours about noise-cancelling AirPods have been consistent with previous reports. Source: Digitime
  12. Okay, in case you're waiting to savour today's insane episode of 'Game of Thrones' later in the evening, then you have been warned, because just like the night is full of darkness and terror, this one has a few major spoilers for you. For the rest of us who are still shook, here's what the next episode might bring. So, the Battle of Winterfell lasted long enough for a few people to die but it was crazy towards the end when Arya Stark struck down the mighty Night King. Now, the whole 'he just died in a jiffy' has left everyone with a bit of indigestion thinking how easy that was, if not quick. But we forget that this is 'GOT' and things can happen rather quickly and with only 3 more episodes to go, there are so many plots that need attention. With the battle now being won, it looks like Cersei and Khaleesi are ready for a face-off. So many people have scores to settle with Cersei, who conveniently decided to stay out of the war and now, Khaleesi only wants more bloodshed. © HBO Now, here's what I feel we can expect from the next 'Game Of Thrones' episode with the Night King resting in an ice cube somewhere. There will be another gory battle between the living. There has to a 'Cleganebowl' where we fear the Hound might die. The Starks and the dragon queen might have a slight tiff between them which could be tricky for a certain Tyrion Lannister and, of course, there is the anticipated madness that might grip our dear Dany given the threat to her throne in the form of lover Jon Snow and no Jorah to calm her nerves down. With so much left to witness, the action is only getting crazier.
  13. Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' premiered today and boy, oh boy, has it given new light to a particular theory that we've been speculating for so long. Cersei Lannister was introduced to us as a cruel, conniving Queen who was willing to cross any lines when it came to protecting her kids and lover/ twin brother Jaime. We've hated her initially and then we grew to admire her for her unpredictable moves that would challenge the whole sequence of events (remember the burning of the Sept?) all orchestrated seamlessly. A major motivation and central to her arc is the Prophecy that Cersei was made acquainted to as a little girl. © HBO While going deep into the woods around Casterly Rock, Cersei stumbled upon an old woman called Maggy the Frog, who turned out to be a powerful fortune teller. Cersei asked Maggy three questions about her future, however, the answers weren't hopeful. The first said that she wouldn't marry a Prince, but a King. The second said that she would be cast down by a younger and a more beautiful queen who would take all that she held dear. Further, Maggy told Cersei that the king would have 20 children, but that Cersei would only have three, and “gold will be their crowns, and gold their shrouds.” Now, of all the three predictions, Margaery Tyrell did manage to take away most of what Cersei held dear to her including her son, Tommen but besides these three predictions, in 'A Feast for Crows', the fourth book in the series, Maggy reveals to Cersei one final part of the prophecy: “The valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale throat and choke the life from you.” Now, here the valonqar translates to a younger brother. For Cersei, this has always been Tyrion as someone who could possibly try to kill her. © HBO However, if you notice, there is this other 'younger brother' in Cersei's life. Yes, we're talking about Jaime Lannister. © HBO After watching the first episode, this prediction could come to life, because Cersei has commissioned Bron to assassin Jamie. If this fails, Jamie could possibly come after Cersei because he's clearly repulsed by Cersei's rule, which is like the Mad King in more ways than one. To begin with, Cersei made Tyrion believe at the end of the seventh season that she would send the Iron Fleet to help fight The Army Of the Undead. This obviously, was a lie which Tyrion failed to see through for a change. She couldn't care less about the White Walkers or the impending doom as long as she could save herself from it. In the fifth episode of season 7, Cersei told Jaime that she was pregnant. Now, in the premiere of season 8, she consummated her alliance with Euron Greyjoy because the only way she could keep the Iron Fleet and have her way around with it was if she would sleep with Euron which, to her seemed a small price to pay. © HBO Now, Euron telling Cersei “I'm going to put a prince into your belly” is practically impossible — if, indeed, Cersei is still pregnant. It's unclear, however, if that's the case. If you recall, Cersei nixed drinking last season when she realized that she was pregnant. But in today's episode, she was seen sipping a glass of wine after sleeping with Euron. While the Westerosi doctors probably aren't warning Cersei against fetal alcohol syndrome, the change could signal a change in Cersei's status. Regardless of whether Cersei is pregnant or not, she's likely to lose her baby at some point to that effect taking into account how things are moving. But the question is if a majority of the theory has come to pass, as we are still waiting to see who will be the vanquisher of Cersei. It could still be Tyrion, if Jaime ends up getting executed or killed before or during the battle of Winterfell. It could also be Euron Greyjoy. Technically he is the younger brother of Balon Greyjoy and passes the criterion of a valonqar if he realizes that his relationship with Cersei is not based on trust and she could betray him any time.
  14. Before you start reading about one of the most important symbols in 'Game of Thrones', this is your last chance to turn away as there will be spoilers ahead. If you've already seen the previous seasons of 'Game Of Thrones' and the premiere of the final season, carry on reading. We don't know much about the White Walkers, their origin and the Night King's intentions; however, we've seen the dead army's stamp time and time again. It's called the “Death Swirl” and we got to see it again in the first episode of Season 8. It is probably the scariest swirl we've seen yet as it consists of limbs and Ned Umber bang in the centre. The swirl gets discovered by Edd, Beric and Tormund and we get to know more what it may mean. Beric tells us that it may just be a message from the Night King. But before Beric could tell us more about the swirl, Ned Umber comes back to life and interrupts Beric's explanation. We all know that the Night King was created by the Children of the Forest thanks to the Three-Eyed Raven's visions of the past. The swirl was created by the Children of The Forest as confirmed by David Benioff in an interview. © HBO "There are certain symbols and patterns that recur throughout the show. The first time we saw that was in one of the very first scenes in the pilot when Will the ranger sees the Wildling body parts in an odd pattern displayed by the White Walkers. We see it again north of the Wall with the dead horses displayed in a spiral pattern, and then you see it again here and learn where these patterns come from, that they're ancient symbols of the Children of the Forest used in their rituals, and the Children of the Forest created the White Walkers,” said Benioff. From what we can gather, the pattern is symbolic to The Children of the Forest and the message the Night King is trying to send is that he remembers, he knows his purpose and he won't stop until he achieves it. The Night King's intentions and purposes are still shrouded in mystery so we will know for sure when it's revealed. This is not the first time we've seen the swirl as the symbol has made an appearance in various scenes before. We see the symbol for the very first time in the very first episode of Season 1. It was made up of wildling bodies and limbs that were arranged in the pattern of the Death Swirl. © HBO The next time we see the swirl is in the third episode of season three when Jon revisits “Fist of the First Men”. His fellow Night's Watchmen were murdered by the white walkers and their horses were mutilated to form the pattern of the symbol. The horse's heads were arranged in a spiral giving us a confirmation that this symbol plays some form of significance in the Night King's story arc. The last time we saw the Death Swirl before Season 8's premiere was in Dragonstone and was discovered by Jon Snow. It was discovered when Jon was mining for Dragonglass under the forgotten outpost. This discovery is probably the most crucial hint towards the symbol's significance as murals on the walls of the cave depict the Children of The Forest working together with the First Men at the first battle of the Long Night. They were the first to defeat the White Walkers and the death swirl is carved in the cave paintings with much significance. The prominence of the swirl painting on the walls is a major hint that it played a vital role even during the first Long Night. The death swirl according to some theories has to do with some form of magic and maybe some kind of a reminder about how the White Walkers were created. Other theories suggest that the symbol has something to with the weather. The further south these symbols are created, the further winter would envelop these lands. Other theories suggest that it may hold the secret of defeating the Night King. © HBO The Night King was created by the Children of The Forest by piercing a man's chest with Dragonglass. Dragonglass is one of the materials that can also destroy white walkers. If this swirl played a role in the creation of the Night King, just like Dragonglass, it may just also hold the secrets of defeating the Night King. We can't entirely be sure what the Death Swirl means until it is finally revealed in the final season but we can be certain that it plays a crucial role. It may be related to the Night King's ultimate fate or it may just be bigger than that altogether. Remember, George RR Martin has already said in past interviews that the ending to the series will be bittersweet. It's best we forget the traditional “Good Vs. Evil” concept and start preparing for some major shock in the final season of 'Game of Thrones'.
  15. If waking up in the morning and finding pimples on your face is a recurrent eventuality in your life, and if you've tried all possible anti-acne products to get rid of your pimples, you need to focus on other reasons that are causing these pimples. Besides being disposed to sensitive skin, there are other unforeseen factors that could be causing your pimples. Some of these could be: 1. Your Tendency To Touch Your Face Might Make Your Breakouts Worse © Getty Images While it might be tempting, it's not a great idea to play with your face throughout the day. Chances are picking your pimples could make them red leaving a scar behind. Also, remember to never pop that pimple because extracting the pus out of your pore could run the risk of pushing the bacteria deeper and making the problem worse. Besides, all the times at work when you rest your hand on the chin while sitting at your desk can transfer bacteria from your hand onto your face. Use a pimple-patch to cover pimples if you have an uncontrollable urge to touch newly formed zits. 2. Stress Breeds Pimples © Getty Images These two might seem completely unrelated but stress triggers acne. Pressure-filled situations make your skin produces stress hormones, like cortisol, that stimulates oil glands to make testosterone which in return increases oil production and clogs your pores which translates to more breakouts. Working out regularly and taking time off your busy schedule are things will help you release stress and subsequently the cluster of pimples. 3. Your Smoking Habit Is Also Causing A Lot Of Pimples © Getty Images Lighting a cigarette decreases the oxygen supply to your skin. Smoking not only increases the chances of cancer but also causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin that leads to wrinkles and increased pore size. The carcinogens in the smoke also irritate your skin and dry it out, triggering it to produce more oil and, possibly, more breakouts. The obvious solution to getting fewer pimples is nixing smoking. Trust us, it's not helping you. 4. The Food That You Eat Can Cause Acne © Getty Images Tomatoes and peppers are two common ingredients in spicy foods that contain acidic lycopene. This is an irritant that can trigger breakouts around the mouth. However, it's not just spicy food that can trouble your skin. Certain people have a strong reaction to dairy, gluten, or other types of foods. It really depends on what suits you and what doesn't. 5. Post-Workout Neglect Trigger Body Breakouts © Getty Images Skipping the shower right after working out allows the dirt, bacteria, oil, and sweat to seep into your pores and cause breakouts. If the commute from the gym to your place is long, get face wipes. It does damage control and makes us not showering immediately after. 6. The Ingredients In Your Skincare Might Be Causing Breakouts © Getty Images Read your labels. We know this is easier said than done but if you don't know what to look for, a good place to start would be sticking to products labelled “noncomedogenic,” which means it has been specifically formulated not to clog your pores. That said, if you've tried all the above and your breakouts continue to worsen, make an appointment with your dermatologist to see if you could be allergic to another ingredient in any of the products you use. 7. Your Face Scrub Might Be Causing Harm To Your Face © Getty Images Rough exfoliants like face scrubs, loofahs, or cleansing brushes are only going to worsen your breakouts. The idea here is to repair your skin's protective barrier to keep bacteria at bay. If your skin is sensitive and acne prone, stick to a mild face that gently washes your face.
  16. Once you've decided and made up your mind that you are going to lose some fat this summer, a particularly tricky question is bound to pop up in your mind. Should You Do Cardio Or Lift More Weights To Burn More Body Fat? You will get lots of random information for this question with some weird logic attached to them. So, to solve this problem for you I am going to give you the correct answer with a logical explanation. Which Form Will Burn More Number Calories For You? The first thing you need to understand for fat loss is that you need to create a deficit in your daily calorie intake. This deficit can be created in two ways, first is to reduce the number of calorie intake and second is to increase the number of calories burned. Right now, I am just going to talk about the second one. To burn more calories you will have to work out for at least 5-6 days in a week. Now, what should you choose as a medium of exercise, cardio or weights? Let me tell you something that will help you to make the choice easier. You will burn more calories in a single session of cardio exercise as compared to a single session of weight training. via GIPHY Now I am sure that you would be thinking that cardio is a clear choice as it will help you to burn more calories per session. Well, here is what you missed. Though cardio will burn a number of calories for you inside the gym once you step outside it is weight training that will help you more. When you do resistance training, your body will start building muscles which will have a greater impact on your metabolic rate than cardio alone. Cardio Alone Could Create Problems Trying to lose weight by performing only cardio session may prove to be really harmful to you in the long run. People who try to reduce their weight quickly using cardio exercises are the ones who later on complain about having loose skin. They lose fat but their skin becomes loose and soggy. People who weight train are able to build muscles and thus their chances of having loose skin after fat loss becomes less. Secondly, long duration cardio sessions multiple times a week are going to cost you dear on the joints. People who perform long runs of treadmill almost every day complain about having knee and other joint pains. And thirdly, cardio alone could also lead to muscles loss and chronic fatigue. © Getty Images What Should You Do? You will find people out there who will bash cardio completely. They will tell you that stepping on a treadmill is like a sin inside the gym. Here's my perspective as a coach: Cardio can be included in your workout program if you plan it smartly. Your first priority should always be to train every muscle group with weights at least once a week. Now if you still have some time left that you can spend in the gym, you may include a couple of small cardio sessions every week. These sessions can be included to build up good endurance stamina as well. The way you like to balance it is your personal choice, but yes, resistance training should always be your priority.

  18. It has been a couple of years since Apple has launched a 'small' iPhone. The last small and compact phone from the company was the iPhone SE that came out all the way back in 2016. Well, if the new report is something to go by, then it looks like Apple might finally launch a compact iPhone next year. According to DigiTimes, Apple is readying new iPhones for 2020 with display sizes - 5.43-inch, 6.06-inch, and 6.67-inch. Looks like the company will be sourcing the displays from Samsung or LG. The current lineup, in case you're wondering, has display sizes of 5.8-inch (iPhone XS), 6.1-inch (iPhone XR), and 6.5-inch (iPhone XS Max). So, if it turns out to be true, Apple will reduce the size of the smallest model while increasing the size of the biggest model. © Unsplash We're not entirely sure as to what Apple is planning to call these new iPhones, though. But if we were to guess, then the smallest iPhone would be called iPhone SE2, which has been passing the rumour mill for quite some time now. But again, that raises questions about the names of other iPhones, so your guess is as good as ours, really.
  19. Yes, you read it right. If things do go right, ace musician Bappi Lahiri soon might be the sound master for one of the Marvel movies in the near future. He is already in conversation with the production team and things are looking good for him. © Instagram Well, if you remember, his song 'Jhoom Jhoom Baba' was used for 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' back in 2017 and even Chris Pratt was taken by surprise. "I am currently in talks with Marvel Studios. They had used my song Jhoom Jhoom Jhoom baba. Chris Pratt, the hero of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, had really liked the song. So maybe a song (by me) will be used in their next film. I will go to Hollywood in April," Bappi told IANS in a telephonic interview. Bappi Lahiri will also be seen in a fantastic collaboration with rappers Snoop Dogg and Akon as well. Bappi Lahiri is already making a movie this year titled 'Ek Adhura Sangeet' © Instagram If you're wondering about a possible biopic on the interesting man, well, he has had the same thought. There is nothing in the pipeline yet but he wants Ranveer Singh to play his role, if at all this happens. The man has a career that expands over 4 decades, so well, are you ready to listen to some Bappi Da in the next Marvel adventure?
  20. Can you imagine a guy, who was once in a Twilight movie is now a freaking Oscar winner? Yeah, me neither. I feel like no one really remembered Rami Malek playing a vampire in the last Twilight movie, and it's safe to say he's come a long, long way since then. Rami is still being smothered in praises for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and now, he has another incredible role already lined up. Turns out, he's going to play the villain in the next Bond movie. Actually, it's not like his Oscar win had to do anything with him getting the role, the only problem was scheduling, as he had to shoot for 'Mr Robot'. But, now it seems like everything has been figured out and the negotiations are almost done. Get ready, we will probably have a cool new Bond villain soon! Everyone is! Rami Malek going from Freddie Mercury to Bond villain? I'm down for that! https://t.co/mqZJ63mOTw — Tyler Calvert (@Tyler_Calvert23) February 27, 2019 Just to be clear, they wanted him before the Oscar win. They love getting recent Oscar winners for their villains. First Javier Bardem, then Christoph Waltz, now Rami Malek. I dig it. — charley15z (@tcallerman) February 27, 2019 Let him! Please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth. https://t.co/d0lzkKx84j — Adam Lowes (@adlow76) February 27, 2019 He would be, tbh.

If you've seen Rami Malek in interviews you'll know he's already a Bond villain. — Dan Marcus (@Danimalish) February 28, 2019 He really is. Awards season made me side eye him, but he's a great actor. I'm into it. https://t.co/DoVqO4rN4G — Ami (@Amic_8197) February 27, 2019 He would be so good. LISTEN I like this. Despite the steaming pile of garbage that is Bohemian Rhapsody, I think that Malek is a very good actor and I definitely think he would make a cool, suave, unpredictable villain. Especially in a Cary Fukunaga movie! https://t.co/fPwfE2xSFa — Mary (@mareli221) February 27, 2019 Yes, everyone. Am I going to watch a Bond movie purely for Rami?

  21. We are all for fast-paced, gripping entertainment on any given day. A thrilling, action-packed film almost always succeeds to grab our attention as compared to the sappy motion pictures that we have to sit through on a lazy Sunday night with our girl. So talking of the forever special place the good ol' action and crime thrillers hold for the likes of us, we had to let you in on the fact that the latest trailer for 'Triple Frontier' has gotten us hooked and left us asking for more. © Netflix Starring big names like Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac amongst others, the trailer gives us a peek into the racy plot of the movie, that is riveting enough to bring us onto the edge of our seats. The trailer opens with a covert peek into the post-retirement life of five former Special Forces operatives who are frustrated with their sucky pensions and lack of better opportunities in the future, besides a lot of other things. So they decide to take matters into their own hands and plan a heist on a drug lord's blood money. All goes well until the paramilitary, cops and the drug lord's goons come after them. As the ex-operatives set out to straighten out their lives by getting their hands dirty with something criminal, and keep themselves about the country for the first time in their life, the shitstorm makes it exciting enough for us to count the days until its release on Netflix. With a huge cast to boast and a plot that has already gotten us hooked with the 'Narcos' and 'Hurt Locker' feels, we bet this one is going to be one helluva ride. 'Triple Frontier' releases on March 6, 2019 on Netflix.
  22. It's 1955. The Cold War is in full swing. Thriller writers are having the time of their life. As for the rest of us, the threat of nuclear armageddon hangs over us, like, well, a mushroom cloud. In the middle of all this, the USAF's B-52 Stratofortresses keep making sorties, flying out of bases in the UK, going up to the Soviet Union's border. Just in case… via GIPHY Fast forward to 2018. The world's changed unimaginably. The President of the United States argues with people on something we call 'Twitter'. But the B-52 is still soldiering on, flying missions in the South China Sea, reminding the PRC that the United States is still around, even if it's bogged down with fights over silly walls and whether the President had an affair! The Mean Machine - Boeing's B-52 Stratofortress The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a legendary war machine - it's been around for longer than most of us, and thanks to constant upgrades, it's still on the frontlines. © Tech. Sgt. Nathan Lipscomb for US DoD The Balkans, the Gulf War(s), Afghanistan. It's been there, bringing a reign of destruction on people Uncle Sam doesn't like. And it's gonna be around for many years to come... The B-52 project started in 1946 - just after the Second World War ended. The Cold War was starting, and the US wanted something to maintain its dominance. Designed to carry massive nuclear (and thermonuclear) weapons, the B-52 first took to the air in 1952, entering service in 1955. The B-52 Was A Harbinger Of Doom Even though the B-52 was later used with conventional weapons - it was responsible for carrying out several 'carpet bombing' missions in the Vietnam war - it was really meant for World War Three - carrying hydrogen bombs to attack the Soviet Union if the 'balloon ever went up'. via GIPHY One of the bombs the B-52 carried was the B61- which had a yield of nearly half a megaton. Another was the Mark 39 - which, hang on to your hats, had a yield of nearly 4 megatons! For reference, the bomb that levelled Hiroshima was just 20 kilotons. Always Ready As part of Operation Chrome Dome, B-52 bombers were kept constantly airborne - the reasoning being that even if the Soviet Union managed to 'take out' the US's ICBMs on their launchpads with a first strike, the B-52s (and the US Navy's missile submarines) would be around for retaliation. Even better, they could dissuade the Soviet Union from even trying to start a nuclear war. © Senior Airman Malcolm Mayfield for US DoD All That Flying With Nukes Was Risky Did you know that we nearly faced nuclear armageddon in 1961? The US and Soviet Union weren't about to attack each other (though they came close on several occasions in the sixties). What happened was that a B-52 carrying two Mark 39 bombs broke up in mid-air, and the crew eventually bailed out. As it turns out, the two bombs fell out of the aircraft, and one of them got activated - with only one final switch preventing it from going off! The B-52 Even Shot Down A Fighter Jet! You wouldn't imagine a big, lumbering bomber to be able to shoot down one of the most legendary fighter jets ever, but that's exactly what happened in Vietnam back in 1972 - the tail gunner in a B-52 managed to shoot down the newest, deadliest jet fighter of the time - the MiG-21. A one-off? Heck, no! Another crew in another B-52 repeated this feat some days later! Pretty impressive, isn't it? © Staff Sgt. Michael Battles for US DoD This Massive Bomber Might Be In Service For Another 50 Years The B-52, like every other piece of military equipment, has been getting upgrades throughout its life - the last major version first flew in 1961, with production stopping a year later. Of course, it's been given a lot of nips and tucks over the years, with fancy new electronics being retrofitted. © Senior Airman Jonathan McElderry for US DoD That means that even the youngest B-52 is well over 50 years old - but what's even more surprising is that the USAF might keep on flying these aircraft for another half-century. That's right, the B-1 Lancer (a gorgeous machine for sure), the F-117 stealth fighter, and the B-2 stealth bomber came much later, but nothing has managed to replace the B-52! © NASA There's a new upgrade programme on its way, with new engines, and new avionics, and who knows, the next generation might grow up marvelling at this 'Big Ugly Fat F@#er' (the nickname given to it by US troops in Vietnam) which has managed to outlast every other machine!
  23. In 2017, a Porsche sold for, hang on to your hats, $2.08 million. Eye-watering by even today's stratospheric supercar prices. But you know why this was such a big deal? The car in question, a Porsche 959 Sport, was 30 years old, and when new, cost in the region of $200,000! © Porsche Probably The First Supercar There's a thin line between supercars and sports cars, but the Porsche 959 stepped over that rather firmly. Production started in 1987, ending a year later, and just 292 of these were built (including just 29 Sport versions). 450hp, a top speed of 200mph, a 0-60mph time of under 4 seconds (3.6s for the Sport), the 959 was perhaps the first real supercar (as opposed to 'sports cars' and 'GT cars'). Consider this: One of today's most desirable cars - the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 - does the 0-60mph sprint in 3.5 seconds, which doesn't seem like a vast improvement over a car built when computers had less power than the smartwatch you got on your birthday. In fact, the two other legendary cars from the 1980s - the Ferrari Testarossa and the Lamborghini Countach, were nowhere near the 959 (both doing 0-60 in around 5 seconds). The 959 was in a league of its own - and it was gorgeous, the wide fenders, the racing-inspired bodywork, the rear wing, everything about it screamed 'speed'. Porsche Might Have Lost Money On It Porsche never intended the 959 to be a mainstream car - not like the legendary 911. In fact, some people say Porsche might have made a loss on every single 959 sold - one estimate says Porsche was selling it for less than half of what it cost to make! What Porsche was going for, then, was to show the very bleeding edge of tech - just what was possible if you threw out all the stops and said 'to hell with the costs'. © Zoom So the 959 came with four-wheel-drive, an adjustable suspension. Speed was so important that Porsche fitted its diva with hollow-spoke alloy wheels (to keep the weight down). Attention to detail like only the Germans can! Even Crashed 959s Sell For Half A Million Dollars “Okay”, you'd think, “if I had a few million lying around, I'd pay $2 million for a legendary Porsche supercar” - one that changed the car industry forever with its tech-heavy nature. But what about the chap who paid $467,500 for a 959 that had been in an accident? Yup, the car still ran, and we assume he got it repaired, but that's still a lot for a car that's been smashed up! The Dakar Edition Is Worth Even More The 959 Sport might be rare, but there's another 959 that's as rare as rain in the Sahara Desert - that would be the racing 959 that was built in 1985 - even before full-time production started - for the Paris-Dakar Rally. It didn't manage to complete the rally, but it had loads more going for it - this 959 was driven by three-time Dakar rally winner Rene Metge, and one of its later owners included Belgian racing legend Jacky Ickx © Zoom But It's Still Nowhere Near The World Record Price For A Car Sorry, Porsche, your 959 might be desirable but your arch-rivals have gone one better - In 2018, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for $48.4 million. The same weekend, another car, 1935 Duesenberg set the record for the most expensive American car sold at an auction - $22 million. But there's a difference - the 959 is remarkably modern (It even came with a tyre pressure monitoring system) and can still be driven around every day. So does that mean your rickety hatchback will be worth that much someday? Well, we'd doubt it but you can always dream!

  25. It sure is a scary thought, but it's inevitable. Most of our favourite cricketers are going to hang their boots one day and we will watch them go with a heavy heart. Here below we discuss 5 legendary cricketers who could possibly retire after the 2019 ICC World Cup: 1. MS Dhoni © Reuters A lot has been said about the decision to include Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the Indian squad for the World Cup. With Rishabh Pant showing his worth both as a batsman and a wicket-keeper during the Border-Gavaskar Test series in Australia, the idea of Dhoni playing in the biggest tournament this year has been challenged by many. But his performance in the ODI series against the Aussies has cleared all doubts that he's not only still got it but continues to be one of the elite batsmen out there. The batsman has shown interest in playing the 2019 World Cup ever since he gave up his captaincy. "It's been a long cherished dream of Dhoni - since he gave up the captaincy in white ball cricket - to play in the World Cup next year where he would be more as a mentor to the team,” Dhoni's Manager, Arun Pandey told Gulf News in 2018. He's had a wonderful career ever since he became a part of Team India. Probably the most loved captain ever, he is also the most accomplished. The best way to say goodbye to the sport for Dhoni would be to play this World Cup, or better yet, win it. A final token of love for the country, one final medal on his wall. 2. Chris Gayle © Reuters Considered to be on a declining career roller-coaster, this may be Chris Gayle's last big show as an active batsman for the West Indies. 2018 was probably one of the worst years for the big hitter who was absent from the Windies squad for long. Despite that, Windies chief selector, Courtney Browne is certain that Gayle will play a crucial role during the team's World Cup run. A part of his national team for four World Cups, Gayle is known for his big innings and making unbelievable records including a massive 215 double century against Zimbabwe during the 2015 World Cup With injuries keeping the former captain away from the pitch for long, the World Cup would be the perfect opportunity for the fans to witness one last 'Gayle Storm'. 3. Ross Taylor © Reuters Making his ODI debut all the way back in 2006, this Kiwi is still playing like a 20-year-old fresher with strong legs and back to support his game. In what has turned out to be a great 2018 for the former New Zealand captain, Taylor scored 639 runs in just 11 ODIs which included two centuries and four half-centuries. "It's a World Cup year, and I've put a big focus on the tournament and on one-day cricket," Taylor said in a post-match press event after the second one-day international against Sri Lanka on Saturday, 5 January. "There are still a few things I want to work on, but I can hopefully continue the form over the summer." Despite the recent run of success Taylor is enjoying, his inconsistency along with his age are hinting his separation from the game. Under the leadership of Kane Williamson and Taylor, New Zealand are looking like real title contenders. 4. Dale Steyn © Reuters The South African pacer was last seen playing in the 50 over format all the way back in 2016 when they were hosting Australia for a five-game series which the Proteas won with a 5-0 clean sweep. "It's so bloody long ago I can't even remember it," Dale Steyn said in an interview with ICC. "What I do remember is that we won 5-0. And it's a team game. And that's all that matters." Since then, Steyn, who's distanced himself from ODIs, has often shown interest in participating in the 2019 World Cup and has also mentioned how he wants his country to lift the championship a lot more. Finding his fitness once more, the bowler played a big role in the Hampshire County Cricket Club England and Wales' domestic first-class cricket circuit and can capitalise it on it during the World Cup in June. 5. Hashim Amla © Reuters Known for his quiet demeanour and a strong presence on the pitch, South African cricketer and Dale Steyn's former teammate, Hashim Amla as a performer, is deteriorating with every single day. Once a proud opener for the Proteas with a powerful and prestigious career of his glory days behind him, the 36-year-old is currently struggling with his pace in all formats of the game. Although the team has other options should Amla not get his touch back, there is still a lot of time for 'the mighty Hash' to get there. What is probably a bit more worrying is his bad luck dealing with injuries. If this is going to be Amla's big exit from the cricketing world, he will most certainly try his best to perform with how much ever fuel he has left in his tank.
