  2. As the COVID-19 spread continues, we are forced to consider re-usable and comfortable options for our protection. A transparent face mask checks off both these boxes. Apart from the skin infections and other forms of physical discomfort, it’s also difficult to communicate in masks. In these times of social isolation, the least that we can hope for is a smile from a familiar face. But thanks to the masks, basic communication is now all the more difficult. These are only some of the many reasons why people are actually moving towards transparent face masks. These masks may be more expensive than regular ones, but they are definitely more comfortable and cheap in the long run. In case you’re still not convinced, here are some facts highlighting many more benefits of these revolutionary masks.

  5. Elon Musk has hit a new apex when it comes to his total net worth as he has now become the second-richest person in the world. Musk overtook Microsoft chief Bill Gates as his wealth saw a rise from $7.2 billion to $127.9 billion according to a report by Bloomberg. © Reuters Musk’s net worth has seen an addition of over $100 billion in 2020 alone and it's the highest for any person on the Bloomberg Billionaire Index. The sudden increase in Musk’s net worth comes due to a sudden surge in the value of Tesla shares which are valued four times more than his SpaceX stakes. To put things into perspective, Musk was ranked 35th on the top richest list at the start of the year in January. He overtook Gates who at the moment has a net worth of $127.7 billion and has now been pushed to the third position. It is worth noting that Gates makes large donations for charity via the Bill Gates foundation, somewhere around $27 billion estimated by Bloomberg. © Reuters Having said that, the wealth gap between the two could be temporary as the difference is not considerable and the two can switch places depending on how their shares perform. Currently, Jeff Bezos is the richest person in the world with a net worth of $182 billion. What’s interesting is that Musk’s recent climb in ranks is only the second time in Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index’s eight-year history where Microsoft Corp. co-founder Gates has ranked lower than number two. Bloomberg said in their report “Musk's milestone marks only the second time in the index's eight-year history that Microsoft Corp. co-founder Gates has ranked lower than number two. He held the top spot for years before being bumped by Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos in 2017. Gates's net worth of $127.7 billion would be much higher had he not donated so prodigiously to charity over the years. He has given more than $27 billion to his namesake foundation since 2006.” © Reuters The Bloomberg report also went on to add that 2020 has been one of the most lucrative years for the world’s richest people. “Despite the pandemic and widespread layoffs that have disproportionately affected the world's working class and poor, the members of the Bloomberg index have collectively gained 23% -- or $1.3 trillion -- since the year began,” said Bloomberg.

  6. The coronavirus pandemic has made our lives come to a standstill as far as travel plans are concerned. Not that one can't travel anymore, but the fear of catching the virus is always lurking. Hence, social media is giving us a chance to treat our eyes with the extraordinary picture of places from across the globe that have been on our go-to list but unfortunately seems like a dream no. Earlier, Shillong’s cherry blossom flowers took over the town, and now a village in Kerala’s Kozhikode has turned the whole town pink due to the extensive growth of an aquatic plant known as the forked fanwort blooms. Kerala’s village Avala Pandi has enticed the locals as the image of the aquatic plant spread across the village has surfaced on the internet and also intrigued people’s attention from across the country. The photos of the rapidly growing plant have also been doing the rounds on social media and have also attracted a lot of tourists who have been visiting the village to look at the sights. Check out the post here- Kerala: Forked Fanwort blooms in Kozhikode; people visit to see flowers of the aquatic plant. (23.11.2020) pic.twitter.com/XLIZBpbovz — ANI (@ANI) November 24, 2020 The pink flower is locally known as ‘mullan payal’. The flower is also a source of income for several local vendors who have been using the pink flower bloom for making easy money amid this economic slowdown. Not only this, it has also become the go-to place for several party candidates who are fighting for votes. Dr. P Dileep told Indian Express that the plants might look beautiful to look at but are a huge threat to the local water bodies. Dr. Dileep said, “Plants may have been from aquarium escapes. Lesser number of people in the water bodies might have contributed to the increased growth of the plant.” Here’s what people on the internet have to say about the unfavorable flower growth in water bodies- This plant not so good for the eco system it seems... — midhun sb (@midhunsb) November 24, 2020Simply wow — Anjali Sharma (@AnjaliSharma797) November 24, 2020It's used in aquariums too....

  7. PUBG Mobile is all set to make a comeback in India after the gaming giant announced its return to the county. However, no date has been made public yet. Having said that, PUBG Mobile India will be launching under a different company name i.e. PUBG India Pvt Ltd which was registered a few days ago. The new registration points to the fact that the game is set to launch soon, but we are still waiting for official information at the time of writing this story. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The news was discovered by esports player of TSM esports group Abhijeet Andgare where he shared a screenshot of PUBG India Pvt Ltd registration details. The company has been registered in Karnataka with two high-level management positions. Having said that, PUBG India Pvt Ltd has been listed as a subsidiary of a foreign company. The application for the company registration was filed on November 21st PUBG MOBILE INDIA GETS OFFICIALLY REGISTERED 🏻️ pic.twitter.com/LOOmZQMHZs — Abhijeet Andhare (@TSMentGHATAK) November 23, 2020 After the brief announcement, fans of the game have been wondering when it will make a return in India. Some users have been able to spot the APK file of the game on third-party websites however there’s no saying how authentic they could be. Having said that, the new registration information shows that the game is indeed being prepped for a launch soon with registrations for the game open on the ‘Tap Tap’ app. © Reuters Last week the company confirmed that players will be able to bring their stats and in-game purchases from the original game. We aren’t entirely sure how this will work but seems like it will be as simple as logging into your account from the app. The game is also expected to bring India-specific changes but there is no word whether new maps will be introduced at the moment. We are keeping a close eye at the launch of the upcoming battle-royale game and will update as soon as we have more information available. View the full article

  9. First salaries are always of paramount importance and most of us remember our first salaries as that’s the first time we ever do something on our own.

  10. Beach lovers should already get excited as amid the pandemic we are just unable to travel. But thank god the internet gets us the pictures of the places we were planning to travel to. Neon glow on beaches has been unreal for years and most of us only thought that Bollywood/Hollywood films edit the water and make it look extremely beautiful. But, who knew this could happen in real and we could witness it in Goa? Last, year blue shimmering waves were spotted at Injambakkam and Eliot’s beach in Chennai due to a phenomenon which is called bioluminescence or sea tinkle. And now, a similar experience has been witnessed at Betalbatim beach in Goa. There is a bleak chance of any of us going to Goa and looking at this in reality but these beautiful pictures will suffice the need for now. For people who don’t know, this neon glow is biological and happens by algae bloom of phytoplankton which usually gets disturbed by the waves. Check out the post here- #ExploreIndia Betalbatim beach in #Goa glows in the dark due to a natural phenomenon in which bioluminescent phytoplanktons in the waves emit a bluish glow when disturbed by the waves.The effect on the waters is dramatic. @TourismGoa @incredibleindia pic.twitter.com/vpWgOKehGM — India In Medan (@indiainmedan) November 19, 2020 India In Medan took to Twitter and posted the extraordinary pictures along with the caption saying, “#ExploreIndia Betalbatim beach in #Goa glows in the dark due to a natural phenomenon in which bioluminescent phytoplanktons in the waves emit a bluish glow when disturbed by the waves.The effect on the waters is dramatic.” While we have been canceling plans of going to Goa for years, now the pandemic has forced us to stay indoors. So even if we want to witness something as surreal as this, it will only be through photos. Here’s what people on the internet have to say about the beautiful blue shimmers. Wow pleasant look — Kamil Akamad (@KamilAkamad) November 19, 2020also in chennai — ˈbīəst ˈpərs(ə)n (@ShivamS06429415) November 20, 2020Beautiful! — Vidushi Kaushik (@VidushiK2) November 19, 2020Who has clicked these photos?

  11. Intimate scenes in movies and TV shows may look very romantic, but the reality has always been that they're awkward as hell to film. Imagine so many people present while you're kissing someone with multiple cameras pointing at you. Not the most romantic thing in the world. © Paramount Pictures And, with the pandemic going on, filming these scenes has gotten just weirder and weirder. First of all, actors have to constantly keep testing for Covid-19 and maintain social distancing as much as possible. © Reuters Moreover, when it comes to intimate scenes, you just have to get really creative to get that perfect shot because no one wants someone else near their faces at a time like this. After movies and TV shows started production back again after the lockdown was over, we've seen so many weird ways in which people have filmed such romantic scenes. First, we saw saas-bahu serials in India embracing face masks and shields to keep filming and it was honestly quite cringey. View this post on InstagramAnother 'romantic' scene had the guy putting hand sanitizer on her and showing that as intimate. I get that it's the new reality, but come on! View this post on Instagram Now, with Christmas around the corner, it means an avalanche of Christmas movies coming our way and Lifetime TV, famous for such scenes, has shown the behind-the-scenes of how kissing scenes have been filmed this year. Are you ready for it? I bet you're not. © Lifetime So, a glass pane is put between the actors and then edited out of the final product. Full props for safety but also full props for making this year feel like we're living in a dystopian world. A couple of months ago, KJ Apa shared how they were filming makeout scenes on the set of Riverdale and it involved a lot of... mouthwash. View this post on Instagram This one seems the most normal of the lot, but the biggest question is, why the hell were you not doing this before there was even a pandemic? Mouthwash between takes should be a requirement, it's kind of gross to not do that. Well, let's see what other creative solutions filmmakers will come up with because, let's be real, the protocols for filming have probably changed for at least the next few years.

  12. Remember in 2017 when Apple was in trouble for quietly slowing down our iPhones and said it was doing so to prevent battery degradation? Yeah, that was some crazy news that we weren't expecting from Apple back in the day. Well, they did apologize for it and offered battery replacements. In fact, Apple also agreed to pay a $500 million class-action settlement earlier this year. Now, the company has agreed to a second settlement. This time, the company will be paying as much as #113 million. The states' attorneys in the US had sued Apple for hiding both the throttling and battery degradation from iPhone users. © Apple They said Apple concealed the issues, which in turn might have forced users to buy a new iPhone altogether when they only really needed to replace their phone's battery to avoid throttling or unexpected shutdowns. Apple obviously denied that and agreed to settle to avoid letting the court decide whether or not Apple has done anything wrong. The settlement hasn't been fully approved by a judge yet, but there's a high possibility that states might see their money sooner than actual iPhone owners. Honestly, a lot of iPhone users are probably not even aware of this issue or they're not bothered by it. That being said, we think it's important to keep tabs on these big names and their wrongdoing. © Reuters After all, who would've thought about degrading batteries inside our iPhones and how Apple would quietly throttle our phones to trick people into buying new devices. We're glad to have moved past that now and we're back to enjoying our new iPhones. Source: TheVerge View the full article
  13. This year has been way too hard for everyone and we all need something to reminisce about the good old days. And, what better way to do that than a movie about everyone's favourite childhood frenemies. The first trailer of the Tom and Jerry movie is here feels so nostalgic and familiar, yet new and exciting. The live-action movie about the iconic duo, mixed with animation, is the kind of wholesome content we all desperately need to just feel something good and happy right now. © Warner Bros Pictures The trailer starts on a false positive note about how they're starting over as friends but honestly, they are the best 'enemies' and nothing can change that. The story follows both of them, as they move to the big city where Jerry makes a home in a fancy hotel. Of course, Tom is the one asked to exterminate the mouse living in the hotel and thus begins the legendary cat and mouse fight we're so used to. © Warner Bros Pictures While the music and the setting in the trailer is not something we associate with this duo, it's still worth a shot to see how the story of Tom and Jerry plays out. Moreover, along with the animated stars, the movie also has Chloë Grace Moretz, Michael Peña, and Ken Jeong in the leading roles. Looking at the trailer, you can easily tell it's going to be so nostalgic and refreshing, we're all going to love it. © Warner Bros Pictures And, let's just thank our stars they didn't go down the Cats movie way for Tom and Jerry, we've had enough of realistic cats for a lifetime. It's pretty interesting. Ahhh Back in Action was a classic... — TailsGuy (@TailsGuy) November 17, 2020 Yes!

This movie will be worth seeing just for the animation alone. They nailed that stylized look, and for the most part, it looks well-integrated.

I just hope it gives equal focus to both the toons and humans. https://t.co/lZxKGHRYlG — Isaiah Montvel-Cohen (@IsaiahMontvel) November 18, 2020 View the full article

  15. Barack Obama recently revealed that he used to watch Bollywood movies in his college days with his friends and why not, we all love old Hindi movies, after all. He reiterates while speaking about his fascination with India in his book ‘A Promised Land’. He also said that he has a special place for India as most of his childhood years were spent in Indonesia listening to the epic Hindu tales of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. © Reuters Obama also revealed that he had never been to India before his Presidential visit in 2010 and he wrote in his book, “India always held a special place in my imagination. Maybe it was because I’d spent a part of my childhood in Indonesia listening to the epic Hindu tales of the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, or because of my interest in Eastern religions, or because of a group of Pakistani and Indian college friends who’d taught me to cook dal and keema and turned me on to Bollywood movies.” © Reuters In 2017, when Obama travelled to India in December, he said in an interview in Delhi that he loves dal and keema. He also that he is the first-ever US President o have the recipe for daal. He added that while his keema is excellent, his chicken is okay. Back then, he had also said that he finds it incredibly hard to make Rotis. Here’s what people on the internet have to say about this- He's very fortunate. Most Indian kids don't get the chance to do that. — sonia 🇮🇳🕉 (@sonia_sinha) November 17, 2020Ab samajh aaya Modi ji "my friend Barack, my friend Barack" kyon bola karte the. — Sanjeev Kumar (@sanjeevkumar__) November 17, 2020Khush ho jao Baharatiyo....... — redblood2714@gmail.com (@redblood2714) November 17, 2020Without understanding it probably...Just listening doesnt help..

  16. COVID-19 is still wreaking havoc across many parts of the world including India. In fact, India's New Delhi is said to be seeing more cases on a daily basis than any other city in the world. But we've been hearing some good news too. Last week, we heard about a new vaccine by Pfizer and BioNTech that was said to be 90-percent efficient. Now, there's a new vaccine that's said to be even more efficient. That's right, Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine candidate is apparently 94.5 percent effective and the authorization is awaited now in a few weeks. © Reuters The data produced by this new vaccine hasn't been published or reviewed by outside experts. However, the experts say that efficiency is more than what they had anticipated. “Aspirationally, you would like to see 90, 95 percent, but I wasn’t expecting it. I thought we’d be good, but 94.5 percent is very impressive,” Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told The New York Times. Moderna also announced that its vaccine can be stored at refrigerator temperatures i.e. between 2 to 8 degrees Celsius for up to 30 days. This means it'll be very easy to store and distribute. The previous vaccine by Pfizer and BioNTech’s vaccine has to stay at -70 degrees Celsius, making it much more difficult to distribute. © Reuters Moderna says it'll have 20 million doses of its two-shot vaccine available by the end of 2020 and 500 million to 1 billion doses in 2021. This is more in line with what we heard earlier for the other vaccine too. We still have a lot of ground to cover when it comes to making these vaccines and distributing them to different places, but it seems like it's going to happen sooner rather than later. Let's hope everything goes according to plan and we'll enter 2021 with high spirits. Source: New York Times View the full article
  17. If you’re a 90s kid you know that there are a few movies that you’ve watched multiple times and you know every dialogue of those films by heart. And now, we might cringe at these films but we all have watched them countless times and enjoyed watching them alone as they are ‘the forever film lot’ for us. So, here is a list of films that are secretly our guilty pleasure and we have re-watched them a thousand times. Hum Apke Hai Koun The film stars Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit in the lead role. The film’s plot revolves around how Prem who is Nisha’s sister’s brother-in-law falls in love with each other. However, Nisha’s sister dies and she is expected to marry Prem’s brother. The film has an extremely bizarre plot and we cringe over it now but we have all watched this film a hundred times. Dil Toh Pagal Hai The movie stars Karisma Kapoor, Shahrukh Khan, and Madhuri Dixit in the lead role. We all love to watch a cool love triangle and this film is Bollywood‘s best love triangle film that was ever made. However, now it feels like we can't watch it anymore. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai We have all watched this film a million times and also started believing ‘Pyaar hee Dosti hai’. The film stars Rani Mukherji, Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan in lead roles and this movie did wonders on the big screen. In the film, SRK and Kajol are best friends but Kajol falls in love with her best friend while he is in mad love with Rani Mukherji. However, Rani Mukherji dies in the film and later their daughter reunites Kajol and SRK and they get together. We really feel bad for Salman here though. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge Raj Malhotra (SRK) is the poster boy of romance in Bollywood and we love him in the film. In the film, Raj and Simran (Kajol) meet during a trip to Europe and fall in love. However, Raj gets to know that Simran is already engaged and he decides to go to India to convince her family. Hum Sath Sath Sath Hain This is the all-time best multi-starrer movie that will keep your mind engrossed and has exactly everything that we need. From ‘masala’ love stories to family drama mixed with a lot of songs, every 90s kid must have watched this film a number of times. View the full article
  18. The Modi-led government has now brought all digital media platforms including the new media and online curated content providers under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. Earlier, they used to come under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology while other media like print, television, and radio came under the I&B ministry. A notification rolled out on 9th November issued by the Cabinet Secretariat announced all the changes regarding the Business Rules, 1961 which brought in all digital media platforms under the I&B ministry. © Unsplash OTT According to an industry source official, “Earlier, there was no clarity over content aired by either digital news or video streaming platforms, but this brings more clarity.” Media experts say that this could change the far-reaching effects of creative expression in India. Earlier, the government officials had emphasized the need for a light-touch regulatory approach for OTT platforms. An I&B spokesperson said the move, a long time coming, was aimed at creating a ‘level playing field’ since all other media are regulated. © Unsplash OTT Now, people have flooded the internet with memes and are telling how OTT platforms will look after the I&B starts regulating them.

  19. If you have ever wanted to run your favourite iOS apps on your laptop and couldn’t, you can now relax as Apple’s new Silicon Macs are now capable of doing that. Thanks to the new M1 SoC, Macs can now run your favourite iOS apps even if an iOS developer has not released a Mac-compatible version. © Apple The company will be rolling out its latest macOS update ‘Big Sur’ on its new Macs and it will support universal apps meaning the ones that have a native binary version built for the new M1 chip and for Intel Macs. This means, for the first time MacBooks will now be able to run iPhone and iPad apps on MacBook laptops. © Apple This is possible because of a new technology called Rosetta 2 that will help the new M1 chip in running apps, for Intel-based Macs as well. In fact, most of the graphically intensive apps will also run better with the M1 chip than Intel chips, thanks to Rosetta 2. This will bring over thousands of apps and games from the App Store to MacBook laptops that were not possible previously. Developers have also started to support the new Macs with apps including Baldur’s Gate 3, Panic, Cinema 4D amongst others. Having said that, apps from Google, Facebook, Amazon Prime, Snapchat and others have currently opted out of the unified app store which could be a temporary measure. © Apple Some universal apps by Adobe will come next month while other applications such as Photoshop are expected to hit the app store next year. These universal apps can be downloaded from the web as well which means it isn’t necessary to download them from the App Store for now. Apple has also optimised its first-party apps for M1 that comes with macOS including Pages, Numbers, Keynote, GarageBand, iMovie, LogicPro and Final Cut Pro. The M1 family of chips have been specifically designed for the Mac and the company claims it is its most powerful chip ever made. With macOS Big Sur and M1, Apple says it delivers up to 3.5x faster CPU, up to 6x faster GPU, up to 15x faster machine learning (ML) capabilities, and battery life up to 2x longer than before.

  20. Here we thought 2020 couldn’t have sucked more than it already does, and boy were we wrong or what? This year keeps hitting us right where it hurts, and we can’t get ourselves to do sh*t about it for the life in us. For instance, hours ago Johnny Depp announced that he has decided to exit the Fantastic Beasts film franchise following a request from Warner Bros to resign from the role of Grindelwald. The news came hours after the Hollywood superstar lost a libel case over a newspaper article which called him 'a wife beater'. View the full article
  21. If there was a show that revolutionised cartoons for kids back in the day, it was Pokemon. Sure other shows like Tom & Jerry, Dexter’s Laboratory and Scooby Doo were all great too but for a cartoon to have kids so invested in it that they’d literally buy countless cards and exchange with each other, it definitely had an impact on a whole new level. And yet, the show could not resist the urge to slip in numerous jokes and innuendos too “matured” for the majority of their audience to understand. It is now however that an entire generation of Pokemon viewers have grown into adults and realising what they were exposed to in their childhood. Here are five times Pokemon made ‘jokes’ only adults could understand: 1. Brock’s Jail Baiting Comment © The Pokemon Company Now if you’ve been watching the show since the first episode, you’d know how girl-crazy Brock really is but normally, he’d be hitting on adults like Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny. Episode The Double Trouble Header however shows Brock thinking out loud about a young trainer named Casey. In that he says “She'll be fun in eight years." That just took a really dark turn really quickly. 2. Ash Working In French Hooters © The Pokemon Company If you don’t know anything about Hooters, it is a restaurant chain infamous for hiring only attractive young female staff who wear orange shorts and a low-cut vest top as a uniform. In the episode Tanks for the Memories, Dawn and Ash dress up as French maids to work in a local cafe nearby. The reference becomes a lot more prominent when a bunch of male customers “are back” but run away instantly as they see a guy in a maid’s costume. 3. Team Rocket Has STD… Probably? © The Pokemon Company Two of the most known members of Team Rocket namely Jessie and James have been known for sharing an unusual relationship. They are supposed to be colleagues who are bad guys but in numerous episodes they have been shown to be great friends too. Episode Hassle in the Castle however blurs the line between their personal and professional lives a bit too much but even has them share a common STD… possibly. The infamous duo barge into a doctor’s clinic and demand treatment for their itchy bits in the typical rhyming monologuing fashion. 4. WTF Ampharos via GIPHY Episode The Light of Floccesy Ranch shows an Ampharos trying to get the attention of a bunch of Mareeps (sheep pokemon) but the way he does it… is definitely not for the kids to see. Let’s just say “sheepy-style” should not be shown on a children’s cartoon show. 5. James’ Inflatable Chest © The Pokemon Company Much like a lot of other cartoons, there are some episodes from the Pokemon show that didn’t get the approval of being telecast or were aired only once. One such episode was titled Beauty and the Beach in which Misty enters a beauty pageant but finds out that both members of Team Rocket are in it as well. James, in a bikini as well, uses an inflatable chest and pumps some extra air in it to win the pageant. There are some not-so-decent gestures being made as well during the scene which certainly shows why the episode was problematic and needed to undergo massive editing before being released.

  22. WhatsApp has introduced a lot of features over the months. We recently learned that we're also getting disappearing messages soon. But today, WhatsApp has made it official that its users in India will now be able to send and receive money on WhatsApp. It's called WhatsApp Payments and it was one of the most requested features of all time. Here's everything you need to know about the service. WhatsApp Payments is built on top of UPI, which is majorly used by most people already in the country to send and receive money. WhatsApp Payments was slated to come out earlier but it was only yesterday that NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India) granted WhatsApp the approval to roll out their UPI-based payment service. Starting today, people across India will be able to send money through WhatsApp This secure payments experience makes transferring money just as easy as sending a message. pic.twitter.com/bM1hMEB7sb — WhatsApp Inc. (@WhatsApp) November 6, 2020WhatsApp will only be available to a maximum of 20 million users in the country. This isn't a huge number considering the fact that there are over 400 million users in India. So for now, WhatsApp is only working with five banks in the country - ICICI, HDFC, Axis, State Bank of India, and Jio Payments Bank. The WhatsApp Payments feature will be available to both Android and iOS users via the new update. Users will be asked to enter their UPI pin for each transaction. Since the service is UPI based, users will only be able to make a transaction of Rs 1 lakh per day. © Reuters We think this feature will also greatly benefit a business that has an active WhatsApp Business account in place. It'll be easy to send and receive payments directly from within the app. View the full article
