  1. 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.
  2. The ozone layer hole near the south pole is the smallest this year since the time it was found. However, don't pat your back yet, it's not due to cut-down on pollution but due to extreme Antarctic weather. According to NASA, this year the hole in Earth's protective ozone layer is 9.3 million square kilometers and it was 26.6 million square kilometers when it was at its peak in the year 2006. This year's hole is even smaller than when it was first discovered in 1982. © Reuters This is indeed good news but scientists at NASA warn us that it isn't good enough and the ozone layer is not completely healed. Paul Newman, chief scientist for Earth Sciences at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre in Greenbelt, Maryland said, "It's great news for ozone in the Southern Hemisphere, but it's important to recognize that what we're seeing this year is due to warmer stratospheric temperatures. It's not a sign that atmospheric ozone is suddenly on a fast track to recovery." Earth's ozone layer protects life on the surface of the Earth from harmful solar radiation, but man-made chlorine compounds create an imbalance like that, which can last in the air for 100 years and nibble at the ozone. This leads to thinning and a gap over Southern Hemisphere. © Reuters An atmospheric scientist with Universities Space Research Association, Susan Strahan said, "It's a rare event that we're still trying to understand. If the warming hadn't happened, we'd likely be looking at a much more typical ozone hole." Till the time the scientists are finding the reason behind the depletion in hole size, let's just think we got a little lucky this year.
  3. The OnePlus 7 Pro was launched in India today and we've been using the smartphone for a while to let you know how the smartphone fares in 2019. OnePlus is one of those unique brands that have been able to dethrone giants like Apple and Samsung in India by offering flagship-level smartphones for a considerably less price. OnePlus makes smartphones using top of the line components and offer a seamless OS experience that can only be matched by Google's Pixel smartphones. The OnePlus 7 Pro has a complete design overhaul when compared to the OnePlus 6/6T with some new features, a brand new display and Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855 processor. Here's what we think about the OnePlus 7 Pro and everything it has to offer: Design And Display © MensXP The OnePlus 7 Pro is beautifully designed and comes with no notches, almost zero bezels and a very vivid screen. At the back, there's a slight curve for better ergonomics and has a reflective glass that catches light from different angles. The colours are not over the top as other smartphones keeping it interesting and alluring at the same time. The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a triple camera setup and has the same branding placement as the OnePlus 6T. The OnePlus 7 Pro comes in three colours: Nebula Blue, Almond and Mirror Gray. At the bottom, the smartphone has the USB-C port, a speaker grille and a SIM card slot. OnePlus has removed the headphone jack as well in favour for better water resistance as it was quite expected since it was removed from the OnePlus 6T as well. At the front, the notch has been completely removed and now has QHD+6.67-inch AMOLED display. The display itself is one of the most beautiful panels we've ever seen on a smartphone. This is also the first time OnePlus has included a 90Hz refresh rate panel which results in a smoother experience and better performance on games. Having said that, the battery life of the smartphone does drop considerably when used in the 90Hz mode. Thankfully, OnePlus has given you the option to switch to 60Hz refresh rate in the display settings. © MensXP The display itself is very bright and has a pixel density of 556 ppi. The colour reproduction on the display has been outstanding and gave the Samsung Galaxy S10+ a run for its money. It was a delight to watch TV shows on Netflix that has HDR support as the OnePlus 7 Pro's display is also HDR10+ certified. The blacks look deep and dark, the contrast ratio is on point and has high saturation levels. In order to complement your viewing experience, the OnePlus 7 Pro also comes with dual stereo speakers that were previously missing in the OnePlus 6T. Since there is no fingerprint sensor, the OnePlus 7 Pro also has an in-display fingerprint sensor just like the OnePlus 6T, albeit it works far faster and smoother than before. Since the notch has also been removed, OnePlus 7 Pro now comes with a pop-up selfie camera just like some VIVO and OPPO smartphones. Having said that, it is worthy to point out that the OnePlus 7 Pro is a very heavy phone and cause fatigue if you are used to the company's previous lighter smartphones. There were times when our fingers and palm would simply tire out when using the smartphone due to its weight. If you plan on using a cover, then it is even heavier. However, once you start using the smartphone, your palm and fingers will get used to it over time. Performance OnePlus smartphones are known to have great components under the hood and the OnePlus 7 Pro is no exception. The OnePlus 7 Pro is blazingly fast and it's all thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor. The flagship level processor is coupled with 6/8 or 12 GB of RAM and comes with different storage options. We tested the 12GB RAM variant and it exceeded our expectations way too much. We ran a simple Geekbench 4 test and our review unit scored 3509 in the single-core test while it scored a very impressive 11130 score in the multi-core test. That's the fastest Android smartphone we've tested this year and is probably the only device that comes close to the iPhone XS Max's performance. © MensXP While gaming, you can run games like PUBG Mobile on the highest settings and there is no frame rate drop according to our Gamebench test. The smartphone also comes with new Haptic Vibration that amplifies your experience while playing games. The heat management is also up to the mark as the OnePlus 7 Pro now comes with a 10-layer Liquid Cooling system. The OnePlus 7 Pro also has a RAM boost mode which basically means that it will allocate remaining RAM to memory intensive applications such as First Person Shooter games. This means you will be able to load games faster thanks to the new mode in combination with the new UFS 3.0 type of storage. UFS 3.0 is probably the fastest form of storage that basically means it can read and write files at a much faster pace than any other smartphone out there. Overall, the performance of the smartphone was outstanding and it is by far the smoothest Android smartphone we've used till date. This is also partly because of OnePlus' Oxygen OS skin that is bloat-free and comes with new features. Cameras © MensXP In terms of photography, the OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a triple camera setup at the back where the primary sensor is a Sony IMX586 48-MP sensor that has an aperture of f/1.6 and pixel size of up to 1.6 μm. The sensor has both OIS and EIS. The second sensor is an ultra-wide 16 MP, f/2.2, with a 117° field of view. The third is an 8 MP, f/2.4, a telephoto sensor with 3x zoom. Now that you know the camera specifications, we were left quite disappointed with the camera performance on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Don't get us wrong, it can do a fair job of taking pictures but overall the quality of images felt underwhelming. The portrait images were not accurate at blurring the edges of our subject while there was no noticeable difference taking images with NightScape. The smartphone does a decent job of taking good images in good lighting conditions but did not perform as expected in the darker environments. Images would turn out to be very warm and sometimes lack the detail that one looks for in pictures. Some images were also overly saturated even when we tried our best to turn the levels down. Overall, the imaging on the OnePlus 7 Pro needs a lot of work and tweaking at the moment as most images simply look too soft. We hope a future update could fix these issues in the near future. © MensXP The biggest change on the OnePlus 7 Pro is the placement of the selfie camera. Since it is a pop-up selfie camera, it comes out from the top of the smartphone each time you switch modes or when you need to unlock using facial recognition. While testing, the pop-up selfie camera would take less than a second to arise and around the same time to go back down. The selfie camera has a 16 MP, f/2.0 sensor that is more than enough for taking simple selfies. The pop-up camera works just like it does on the Vivo V15 Pro and other smartphones that have a similar feature. Here are some camera samples for your reference: Battery Life The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a 4,000 mAh battery that performs well if you know what you are doing. For example, if you are using your display with 90Hz refresh rate and at QHD+ resolution, your battery life will fall considerably. You can turn down the refresh rate or the resolution in order to conserve battery life. Having said that, when you have turned down either one of the options, you can expect an average of 5 hours and 30 minutes of screen-on-time with around 20 percent left. If you tweak either the refresh rate or the resolution, expect the screen on time to fall considerably faster. Having said that, we used the OnePlus 7 Pro extensively for navigation, playing memory and GPU intensive games like PUBG Mobile and Asphalt and a lot of internet browsing. The OnePlus 7 Pro also comes with the company's new Warp Charge 30 adapter with basically is the same charger that came with the McLaren edition of the OnePlus 6T. It increases your charging speed by 38% and we saw our smartphone go from 10% to 69% in less than 20 minutes. Software © MensXP When it comes to the software, I would buy a OnePlus smartphone just for Oxygen OS. It is by far the cleanest and most stable skin you find on a smartphone apart from Pixel smartphones. It offers almost a pure Android experience without any bloat or add-ons. This time around OnePlus has added new features such as Zen Mode. It basically lets users turn off almost all features of the smartphone apart from receiving phone calls. It is the company's effort for better smartphone management and digital wellbeing. The feature cuts access to the smartphone for a period of 20 minutes so that you can tackle smartphone addiction in a better manner. It cannot be cancelled once you start Zen Mode and lock all the apps until 20 minutes elapses. You can also use Google's native Digital Wellbeing feature to track your habits and the amount of time you spend on certain applications. The OnePlus 7 Pro also comes with a gaming mode where it mutes notifications and let you toggle custom settings such as disabling automatic brightness. Within the gaming mode, you also get a new Fnatic mode which basically takes these settings to the next level. It basically blocks all notifications apart from low battery notification, alarm and timer. It also fine tunes the processor to give gaming priority and disable the secondary SIM to give priority to the Primary SIM card for better signal strength. You will need to enable the gaming mode first in order to switch on the Fnatic mode. The Final Say There's no other smartphone that can perform as well as this beast, has a crisp display that offers vivid colours and gives great battery performance if you know what you are doing. Having said that, if you love to take pictures, the OnePlus 7 Pro still needs to improve a lot, especially because of the price tag. When you charge almost flagship level prices, the camera performance has to be up there as well in order to justify a recommendation. Having said that, the performance outweighs the camera performance for us as there's no other Android smartphone that can match up to the OnePlus 7 Pro at the moment. If you want a premium smartphone that can last long, perform well while gaming and take decent pictures, the OnePlus 7 pro is for you.
  4. PUBG Mobile is back in the news again. No one got arrested this time, but sadly two people lost their lives as they were run over by a train while playing the game near the railway tracks. Officials said that the incident happened at Khatkali Bypass in Hingoli, which is over 570 kilometres from Mumbai. The two men, Nagesh Gore and Swapnil Annapurne, were playing PUBG near the railway tracks. They got run over by the Hyderabad-Ajmer train. © PUBG Mobile The bodies of the two men were found late at night by the locals living in the vicinity. The officials have noted that an accidental death report has been registered at Hingoli police station. Also, this isn't the first negative report about PUBG Mobile this month. The game has been hitting the headlines since the beginning of the year for all the wrong reasons. Recently, the Rajkot police even arrested 10 people who were playing the game in public after the ban.
  5. When the Nirav Modi scam made headline, the entire nation was shocked and surprised. The man behind a big diamond empire eloped the country right before the scam hit the papers and the government couldn't get him back to the homeland to punish him. However, people who flock from India have a way of finding a life beyond the border here. After Vijay Mallya was traced in UK, Nirav Modi was spotted chilling in London near his 8 million pounds apartment (roughly 72 Crore) by a reporter from Telegraph and his video has gone viral on social media. Exclusive: Telegraph journalists tracked down Nirav Modi, the billionaire diamond tycoon who is a suspect for the biggest banking fraud in India's historyhttps://t.co/PpsjGeFEsy pic.twitter.com/v3dN5NotzQ — The Telegraph (@Telegraph) March 8, 2019 The reporter persisted with a few question to Modi about the money he owed and how long he intended to stay in England. Nirav Modi's standard reply to every question was 'no comment'. He smiled and politely faded away in the crown as if he's a star being hounded for pictures. The report also claimed that Modi was wearing a jacket made from Ostrich hide which roughly costs around 9 lakh rupees, so clearly he's not as distraught as one might imagine him to be! Also, as per the report, he has resumed his business under a new name and is living a decent life.Nirav Modi was accused of committing one of the biggest frauds in the history of India and he owes PNB a sum of over 13,600 crores already. His uncle, Mehul Choksi who was also accused in the same case is already residing in Antigua and Barbada.
  6. Last week, HMD Global announced the launch of Nokia 8.1 globally and now the company is all set to bring the device to India. The phone belongs to the premium midrange segment and the main highlights of the phone are its premium design, PureDisplay screen, and the new Snapdragon 710 chipset. The Nokia 7 Plus was a stellar phone with an unmatchable design. It was rock solid and had subtle premium queues like a copper line around the phone and very compact metal build. The Nokia 8.1 follows the same design language and brings the addition of an all-glass back. © Sree Hari It features a two-tone design, is built out of 6000-Series aluminium that has diamond cut edges, and has been through two anodising processes. On the front is a 6.18-inch display with Full HD+ (2246x1080) resolution and 18.7:9 aspect ratio. The screen comes with PureDisplay technology that essentially offers higher contrast of 1:1500 and a sharper display along with HDR10 support. The screen also has up to 500 nits of brightness and 96 percent colour gamut. Powering the phone is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset clocked up to 2.2GHz, coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The phone has 64GB internal storage along with the option of expansion via a microSD card. © Sree Hari On the back are Zeiss powered 12-megapixel primary sensor along with a 13-megapixel secondary lens. The primary sensor supports optical image stabilization while the secondary offers depth sensing. The front camera is an AI-enabled 20-megapixel selfie shooter. Nokia's camera app has a Pro Camera UI that lets you use several manual camera options to capture the perfect picture. The phone has a 3500mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging via a USB-C port. Nokia says the phone can deliver up to 22 hours of talk-time and 11 hours of video playback on one charge. For authentication, the fingerprint scanner is located on the back. © Sree Hari It ships with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box along with Google ARCore support. Just like other Nokia branded phones, this phone is also a part of the Android One program, meaning software updates are faster to roll-out. In India, the phone will be available from 21st December 2018 in Blue/ Silver, Steel/ Copper, and Iron/ Steel colour option. The 4GB+64GB variant is priced at Rs 26,999.

  21. Post the success of biopics like 'Neerja', 'Dangal', 'Padman', 'Raazi', 'Parmanu' and historical and period films like 'Baahubali' and 'Padmaavat', Bollywood seems to have dropped the pen and pick up stories that are already available in the bookshelves or on the internet. So let us look at the list of upcoming releases - 1. 'Sanju' - Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt © Fox Star Studios Ranbir Kapoor has emulated Sanjay Dutt in every aspect including his mannerisms and physical looks. Hope this time, Rajkumar Hirani's film plays a major relief in Ranbir's career and the audience gives him his well-deserved Jaadu ki Jhappi on 29th June 2018. 2. 'Soorma' - Diljit Dosanjh as Sandeep Singh © Sony Pictures Releasing Diljit Dosanjh as Sandeep Singh looks promising in Shaad Ali's 'Soorma'. It looks like another 'Sultan', where the sport has changed from wrestling to hockey. We have to wait until 13th July to find more. 3. 'Gold' - Akshay Kumar as Balbir Singh © Excel Entertainment Expected to release on Independence Day, Reema Kagti-directed 'Gold' takes us on the journey of India's first Gold win at the Olympics. 4. 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi'- Kangana Ranaut as Rani Lakshmibai © Zee Studios Kangana Ranaut as Rani Lakshmibai looks promising after Sushmita Sen's dream project never took off. It would be interesting to see her in this brave avatar after playing intense and funny characters in 'Fashion' and 'Queen' respectively. 5. 'Super 30' - Hrithik Roshan as Anand Kumar © Fox Star Studios With 'Super 30', Vikas Bahl also enters into the biopic zone with Anand Kumar's Super 30 class of IITians. Classes are opening in cinemas on 26th January 2019. 6. 'Kesari' - Akshay Kumar © Excel Entertainment Starring Akshay Kumar and Parineeti Chopra, 'Kesari' is based on the Battle of Saragarhi in which an army of 21 Sikhs fought against 10,000 Afghans in 1897. Releasing on Holi, i.e. March 20, 2019. 7. Saina Nehwal untitled biopic - Shraddha Kapoor © Twitter While we have seen Shraddha Kapoor preparing for her role as Saina Nehwal and also meeting her family members at Hyderabad, this Amole Gupte film is yet to have a name as well as a release date. 8. 'Salute' - Shah Rukh Khan as Rakesh Sharma © Instagram Based on astronaut Rakesh Kumar, 'Salute' is rumored to feature Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor in a space adventure for the first time. The film is yet to go on the floors. 9. 'Mogul' - Akshay Kumar as Gulshan Kumar © Twitter Based on T Series founder Gulshan Kumar, Subhash Kapoor's film will have Akshay Kumar as the lead. Not much is known as the film is still yet to go on the floors. 10. 'Gully Boy' - Ranveer Singh © Twitter Based on the lives of rappers Vivian Fernandes aka Divine and Naved Shaikh aka Naezy known for their song "Mere Gully Mein" in Mumbai, this Zoya Akhtar-directed film stars the energetic Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. The rap begins on 14th February 2019. Other Films 11. '1983' - Ranveer Singh as Kapil Dev releasing on 5th April 2019 12. 'Panipat' - Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon to release on 6 December 2019 13. 'Rannbhoomi' - Starring Varun Dhawan to release on Diwali 2020 14. Vikram Batra untitled biopic - Sidharth Malhotra 15. Abhinav Bindra untitled biopic - Harshvardhan Kapoor 16. Shakeela untitled biopic- Richa Chaddha 17. 'Shamshera' - Ranbir Kapoor P.S. - Kalpana Chawla's biopic has not seen the light since Jean-Pierre Harrison, her husband, has not granted the rights to any filmmaker. However, it still remains one biopic that we wish to see someday. Hope Jean gives the nod. But, let's ask ourselves as an audience – Do we really need so many biopics/period films? via GIPHY It is good to bring inspiring stories on the silver screen but bringing it in heaps gives the impression of a biopic fest or period mela. Such a trend is not a good one primarily for three reasons – 1. First, everyone knows the true story and there is no excitement or suspense factor in this genre 2. Secondly, such biopics are altered and manipulated to play to the masses 3. With every major actor doing one or the other biopic, it looks like they and production houses are looking only to play safe and not take any risks by bringing something new on the table in terms of content. Either way, a biopic is not a foolproof business model as there have been major disappointments like 'Haseena Parkar', 'Daddy', 'Simran', 'Mohenjo Daro' and 'Omerta', which hardly enjoyed more than a week of theatrical run. via GIPHY If periodic films or biopics continue to be produced in such a manner, the new screenwriters will never find a voice and creativity shall soon be lost. Bollywood needs to up their game and brew new content. Nevertheless, we have a breath of fresh air lined up with films like 'Happy Phir Bhaag Jaayegi', 'Fanne Khan', 'Manmarziyaan', 'Sui Dhaaga', 'Thugs of Hindostan', 'Zero', 'Kalank' and 'Brahmastra' – which are different in their own league.
