  1. Let's face it, it's hard to keep yourself from asking for that slice of pizza, or ordering more 'bhature'. Well, that's exactly why a company decided to make an electric bracelet that delivers a 350-volt shock every time you decide to splurge on junk food that you'd be better off without eating. Called 'Pavlok bracelet', this piece of wearable tech is a behavior training device that utilizes aversive conditioning. Aversive conditioning, in case you don't know, is essentially behavior training that uses negative stimuli and association to reaffirm a specific action as undesirable. So yes, it'll know when you're doing something that you're not supposed to be doing. That being said, this bracelet can be used to keep you away from not just junk food, but any bad habits that you've been wanting to get rid of. Having trouble saving money? Smoking too many cigarettes? You name it and they know. The bracelet is capable of delivering 150 shocks on a single charge, which isn't too bad for something that's capable of tracking and stopping you from doing what you're not supposed to do. It connects and pair to an app on your phone, which even your friends an family can download to keep a track of you. © Pavlok This bracelet is currently being sold online on Amazon in the US for $199. It sounds a little expensive, but we think it's reasonable considering the fact that it's designed to help you curb your bad habits and replace them with good ones that help you live a better life. We really hope they start selling this bracelet outside the US because we all have cravings that are waiting to be kicked!
  2. Late last night when passengers travelling on the Goa-Mumbai Air India flight found themselves stranded in Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, due to a several-hour delay in their flight take-off, they were left distressed and fuming. The passengers began raising slogans within the airport premises after a four-hour delay. At this point, a Goa Forward Party office-bearer Ketan Bhatikar, who was one of the passengers on the delayed flight, decided to reach out to Goa CM Pramod Sawant and seek his intervention in the matter. Stranded at #Mumbai's #ChhatrapatiShivaji airport late on June 13 night for several hours, protesting passengers of an #AirIndia Bombay to Goa flight were offered free meal from an airport restaurant at the instance of Goa CM #PramodSawant, a passenger said. Photo: IANS pic.twitter.com/pf6wwG1VhR — IANS Tweets (@ians_india) June 14, 2019 Upon narrating their troubles, Sawant didn't only intervene but also gave a pleasant surprise to all the hassled passengers. The CM arranged food for all the passengers from Kebab Grill restaurant, and also made sure that the flight took off ASAP. What makes this all the more special is the fact that Sawant was not even in Goa at that point. He managed to get all this done sitting in the national capital where he was on a work trip. Several passengers including Goans thanked Chief Minister @DrPramodPSawant for helping arrange flight and food, the passengers were stranded at Mumbai Airport on Thursday night due to lethargy of Air India and were helped by CM Pramod Sawant. pic.twitter.com/QRTPCRONBX — PrimeTVGoa (@PrimeTVGoa) June 14, 2019 "I tried calling Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant who answered my phone within two rings at 1.13 am. He called me back five times, arranged food for all passengers at Indian Kebab Grill, and exactly at 1.27 am, he told me that the flight was ready to take-off in 30 minutes. We finally reached Goa at around 3.30 am," Bhatikar informed IANS. That was a very kind and thoughtful gesture on the Goa CM's part and shows other ministers the best way of holding offices and serving people in the truest sense.
  3. You read that right, folks. If you're a crazy Avengers fan and booking cool vacations is your thing, then this is the ultimate amalgamation for you. The gorgeous cabin which was Tony Stark's residence in the 'Endgame' chapter is now listed on Airbnb website, which means you can legit book it and stay in it. © Airbnb This is the same cabin where he's shown living with his wife and daughter and also where his funeral takes place in the movie. The lake-side, rustic looking cabin has 3 rooms and can house 6 guests, has to be booked for minimum 3 nights and initially the listing began from around 300 dollars but now it's already up to 800 dollars a night, which means around Rs 55,000 per night, which is steep but if you save well and have a group of 6 crazy friends up for this adventure, then maybe this can be a good plan. © Airbnb © Airbnb The location is pretty close to the Atlanta airport; so if you are visiting the US and you have the budget to squeeze in this tiny 3-day retreat, then may be you should think about it. Even if you're not a superhero in real life, doesn't mean anything should stop you from living like one.
  4. June 16th 2019 is the day when we will all lose our peace and voice box collectively, cheering on India and Pakistan, who're playing against each other in the ICC World Cup 2019. Although, an India-Pakistan match fervour isn't old news, it's still celebrated and watched by everyone due to the history we've shared with Pakistan all along. During the 2015 ICC World Cup, Star Sports came up with a campaign or theme for the promo of the Indo-Pak match and although it flew well with us Indians, the Pakistanis weren't too pleased with it. The 'Mauka Mauka' ads gained immense popularity amongst the masses and the theme caught on like common cold, all over the country. (c)Star Sports This year, Mauka Mauka is back with a bang, and this time it's promoting the Indo-Pak match on the 16th of June 2019, the same day Father's day is celebrated all across the world and the advertisement has a 'slight' mention of that. As expected, the ad is humouring Pakistan's dismissal record against India in ICC events and it seems it's making the Pakistanis a tad angry, but really, no one cares because it's all in light humour. (c)Star Sports Here, take a look at some savagery! The video shows actor Vikas Malhotra who plays the Pakistan son remembering his father's words on how one should keep trying and never give up, and the Indian fan in the ad shows some savagery by taking the 'baap' dig on the Pakistani player. Obviously the Pakistanis showed a bit of resentment over the ad and aren't happy with the Mauka Mauka campaign, promoting the match between the two countries. This #FathersDay, watch an ICC #CWC19 match jo dekh ke bas bol sakte hain, “baap re baap!” ð Catch #INDvPAK in the race for the #CricketKaCrown, LIVE on June 16th, only on Star Sports! pic.twitter.com/Apo3R8QrbO — Star Sports (@StarSportsIndia) 9 June 2019 I think you guy's have forgotten last father's day your father beated you in Champions trophy Final. #CWC19 #INDvAUS — Fareed Ahmad ðµð° (@fareed_official) 9 June 2019 BC, itni ð Kuttay wali hone k baad bhi ð pic.twitter.com/ZliJP8VEGx — Ø¢Ù¾Û ÚÙÛØ¯Ø±Û ð (@ChaudhriUmar) 9 June 2019 Star Sports and all those liking this add really need to work on their humor.

  5. Off late, HBO has been churning out some great content for its viewers. After the mighty success of 'Game of Thrones', 'Chernobyl' is the new show taking disaster dramatics by storm, breaking records in every way possible. If you know about 'Chernobyl', you'll know it's a story that revolves around the true events that occurred in 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, and the lives of those who faced the consequences, post it. The Chernobyl nuclear power plant was situated North of Ukraine SSR, near a city called Pripyat and it surely was one of the most gruesome disasters to have occurred in the history of mankind, results of which are still quite prominent and visible. © HBO Right now, the show is on its way to becoming the highest-ranking television series, ever and IMBD ratings prove its way ahead of the highest-ranked fantasy drama's namely 'Game of Thrones'! Yes, something has finally beaten 'Game of Thrones' records and that's a first, for sure. The average rating for the show on IMDB is 9.6/10, which way ahead of 'Breaking Bad' and 'Game of Thrones', which have a rating of 9.4/10. But unfortunately, Russia doesn't agree about its popularity and clearly doesn't like how HBO has projected the happenings in the show and is going ahead with its own version of the show on Chernobyl. A Russian network is making a fictional story on Chernobyl, based on a conspiracy theory, that claims that a CIA agent was sent to the nuclear power plant to carry out the acts of damage. This is because the Russian media does not agree to the plotline and the character arcs that are prevalent in the show and they find it strange that an American TV channel (HBO) has told stories about the Russian heroes in their own way. Several other Russian media houses have criticised the show for showing instances based on America's own understanding and perspectives when the disaster occurred far away from them. © HBO The Russians also believe that the American channel is using the show to tarnish Russia's reputation as a nuclear power, through demonstrating facts that aren't true from the show. One of the local papers also said 'the show is a caricature and not the truth'. "One theory holds that Americans had infiltrated the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and many historians do not deny that, on the day of the explosion, an agent of the enemy's intelligence services was present at the station." states film director Alexei Muradov, to an international publication. © HBO With all these conspiracy theories flying about, the show is definitely going to be a lot more interesting and if you haven't watched it yet, its time you catch it, just to understand a bit of history. After all, weren't we all looking for something to replace 'Game of Thrones'? Even if this is a bit extreme as an alternative, it's definitely a must-watch!
  6. Last year, the 'Hum Fit Toh India Fit' campaign took the internet by storm. The 68-year-old PM Modi participated in the challenge and proved that age is just a number for him, as he shared videos of him working out and performing yoga asanas, while lying on top of a rock. © Twitter In fact, time and again PM Narendra Modi has urged his followers (on social media) to include yoga as an integral part of their lives. In case you didn't know, all the Yoga lovers and the world in general actually will celebrate International Yoga Day on June 21, this year. On 21st June, we will mark #YogaDay2019. I urge you all to make Yoga an integral part of your life and also inspire others to do the same. The benefits of Yoga are tremendous. Here is a video on Trikonasana. pic.twitter.com/YDB6T3rw1d — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) June 5, 2019 So, being an ardent fan of yoga, PM Modi has been sharing a series of videos on social media of asanas like Trikonasana, Tadasana and Vrikshasana. But, what's so special about these videos? The videos feature an animated PM Modi performing those asanas and listing benefits of those asanas, so that more and more people can incorporate yoga in their lives. Doing Tadasana properly would enable you to practice many other Asanas with ease. Know more about this Asana and its benefits. #YogaDay2019 pic.twitter.com/YlhNhcRas8 — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) June 6, 2019 "On 21st June, we will mark #YogaDay2019.

But, this time looks like people are loving this initiative (so far) and have come forward to show their support for International Yoga Day. Do you have Video if you doing this ji.

  7. Call it having an eye for spotting the most hilarious, amazing, and sometimes bizarre things happening around the world, or having a great mind to appreciate humour, Anand Mahindra has never failed to impress us with his knowledge and wit. Honestly, Mahindra's Twitter account should be officially named a 'national treasure', because you can find all kinds of valuable information and priceless memes there. While everyone is talking about 'JCB Ki Khudai' i.e. random JCB videos and memes, Anand Mahindra has moved on to a road roller and the insane benefits we never knew the machine had. © Twitter Road rollers are basically used to compact soil, gravel, concrete or asphalt in the construction of roads and foundations, right? But, thanks to Anand Mahindra's tweet and the guy who plastered a certain poster that we now know that it can actually be used for body massage. Anand Mahindra wrote while sharing this picture, "Hilarious. After this massage, you'll never need another one; it'll be a permanent remedy for all ailments..." Clearly, we'll never be able complain about body pain again. Hilarious. After this massage, you'll never need another one; it'll be a permanent remedy for all ailments...

  8. Apple finally announced the new iOS 13 for iPhones and iPod Touch during the WWDC 2019 keynote yesterday. Yes, iOS is no longer available for iPad and that's because the company announced a new OS for iPads called iPadOS. iOS 13, in case you don't know, comes with a bunch of new features like Dark Mode, a couple of redesigned apps, faster app loading times, faster FaceID and more. © Apple According to Apple, the first public beta of iOS 13 will launch in July. But if the curiosity to try out the new OS is killing you, then you can actually install and check out the iOS 13 beta right now. Yes, it's possible and here's how you can do it. How To Install iOS 13 Right Now In order to install iOS 13 on your iPhone right now, you'll need a paid Apple developer account. That's because this isn't a public iOS 13 beta rollout. The beta software is only available for the developer to play with the OS and make compatible apps. If you're not a developer and don't have a developer account, then you can enroll for one right here. Do make a note that not all users are eligible to have a developer account, so you might not be able to create one right away. If you have a paid developer account, then you visit this page of the Apple Developer site to download the beta software right now. Again, do make a note that this won't be an OTA update, so you'll have to manually install the update. Wait For The Public Beta While the developer beta is out right now, we suggest you wait for the public rollout next month. For one, it'll be free to download and can be loaded via an OTA update. It'll also be slightly more polished than the developer beta that's out right now. Also, before you proceed, it's worth pointing out that it's best to create a back up before installing the beta software. Failing to do so will force you to be stuck with the beta version of iOS 13, which may or may not be very stable for daily use. Supported iPhones & iPods © Apple According to Apple, these are devices that can take part in the iOS 13 beta - iPhone XS, XS Max iPhone XR iPhone X iPhone 8, 8 Plus iPhone 7, 7 Plus iPhone 6s, 6s Plus iPhone SE iPod Touch 7th Generation Well, now that you know everything about iOS 13 beta, go ahead and check out all the new features that are available.
  9. While the Civil Services are the most honorary posts to hold in the country, a lot of people miss their chance to be a part of the services because the examinations held by the UPSC aren't easy at all. And even though we have 4 attempts to pass these exams, sometimes, making it through those 4 times is improbable. Lakhs of people apply every year for the civil service examination and only about 1% of them get through. But for some people, cracking these exams and becoming an IPS officer at the age of 20 was a piece of cake. How, you ask? One would imagine he's a child prodigy to sit for the exam once and come out with flying colours and become an officer of the law, but little do we know, it was all a big farce and he actually wasn't a qualified IPS officer. © Facebook Meet the 20-year-old Abhay Meena, who posed as a high ranking IPS officer with a fake ID and credentials, a social media personality and a motivational speaker, all rolled in to one. He was recently arrested by Special Operations Group, Delhi and we're sad he misused a prestigious position to actually con the nation. Meena, who has indeed failed class 12th, claimed to have cracked the IIT and the UPSC examination in the first try itself, becoming an PS officer at a really young age. Because of this, he was often invited to institutions, fashion shows and parties to give motivational speeches as a chief guest, where he would wine and dine and con people in to believing in his hard work. So much so, he would meet police officers at these events and laud them for their great work, ironically. I mean you really have to have some cheek to pull off such an intrinsic lie, and fool people. © Facebook He was finally caught when someone noticed his police card, in which the word branch was spelled as 'branche' and capital as 'capitol'. After investigating his records further, he was finally arrested by the SOG from his apartment in Jagatpura. Meena tried intimidating the officers by boasting about his influences but clearly, that didn't work as he's under arrest currently. Apparently, Meena used to drive around in a car which has a 3-star police plate affixed on the bumper and a 3-star credential is only reserved for a DG or an Additional DG (ADG) rank. So, clearly he was misusing that too. © Times of India After wining and dining at expensive hotels, without paying the bills and showing off his ID wherever he would go, Meena is currently at the Pratap Nagar Police Station eating only 'jail ka khaana'. We feel this is grave disrespect for officers who've actually worked hard to crack civil service exams and have come all the way, with their hard work to stand where they do. It's also grave disrespect towards all the people who spend days, weeks and months preparing for these examinations and burning the midnight oil to serve the country. And here we have a man, who'd been conning his way through, making people believe he did what he did through his hard work. Up until recently, I thought these things could only happen in movies like 'Catch Me If You Can' or 'Bunty Aur Bubli', but people actually grow up in reality to become con artists and we hope he's the only one, who has pulled off such a stunt.
  10. Those who have seen the trailer of 'Kabir Singh' featuring Shahid Kapoor would have an idea that something great is in store for them. As soon as the teaser of 'Kabir Singh' was unveiled, Twitter users began comparing it to the Vijay-starrer 'Arjun Reddy'. Fans are excited to see Shahid on the big screen and nail this character to its fullest. But guess what? Shahid wasn't the first choice for the role. It was Arjun Kapoor. Yes, you heard it right. Director Sandeep Vanga, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, confirmed that he had approached Arjun for the role initially. When the director was asked if the makers approached Arjun Kapoor, he said, “Yeah, but before that Shahid and I were already in talks, so I couldn't just jump to another actor It's not about whose acting caliber is greater but it's about the commitment.” Well, we wonder what would it have been to see Arjun play this character. Coming back to Shahid, he has left no stone unturned to get into this character and the trailer has created the right noise for the film. Watch the trailer here: The film's story revolves around a surgeon whose life changes completely after a bad breakup. He uses drugs and alcohol to get over the pain that break-up has caused him. The film also features Kiara Advani in lead role and is set to release on June 21. It will be interesting to see how the movie shapes up. Are you excited for this one? Do let us know in the comments section below.
  11. Battle Royale games like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite, as we all know, hit mobile gamers hard. With over millions of active players, these titles are still going strong even after all these years. Well, if you're tired of playing the same old battle royale titles, or if you're planning to get aboard the battle royale hype train, then we've got some amazing options. Let's check them out - 1) Crossfire Legends If you like PUBG Mobile, then you'll most likely enjoy Crossfire Legends too. It's a fantastic game and it's developed by Tencent, the guys who made PUBG Mobile. Just like PUBG Mobile, Crossfire Legends' BR mode also lets you dive into a solo, duo or a squad game. Crossfire Legends got great weapons and amazing visuals, so it's definitely worth checking out. In addition to the BR mode, this particular game also offers a few different modes such as Team Deathmatch, Mutant mode, and more. Availability: Android & iOS 2) Call Of Duty: Mobile This one's a fairly new game. Heck, it's not even available for all users, but it's still worth adding to the list. Call of Duty: Mobile, though it's only available for select registered users, has gained a lot of traction. It's got a Battle Royale mode, Team Deathmatch, etc. Call of Duty: Mobile differentiates itself as a tactical shooter, making it one of the very titles out there offering a tactical shooting experience. We've already put up a detailed write up explaining about the key differences from PUBG Mobile and you can check it out right here. In case you haven't tried the game yet, here's how you sideload the game and play it right now. Availability: Android & iOS 3) Fortnite Fortnite is in-part responsible for creating the battle royale hype, so we had to add this to the mix. Unlike PUBG Mobile, this one's a super stable game and a lot of fun to play. Although Fortnite is a battle royale title, the gameplay is slightly different. The only downside to the game is that it's not available on the Google Play Store, so you'll have to get it from the Epic Launcher. It's available directly from the App Store though. Availability: Android & iOS 4) PUBG Mobile Well, lastly we have PUBG Mobile. Yes, the game that popularised the Battle Royale genre. The game lets you jump off to an island with 99 other players and get into an epic battle to get the 'Chicken Dinner'. The game has a bunch of different weapons, looks great, and even works on phones with not-so-powerful specs. One of the best things about this game is that it's constantly updated with new skins, items, etc., so there's always something to look forward to. Give it a try if you haven't already, but keep your play time in check. Availability: Android & iOS
  12. Remember Payal Rohatgi, the social media sensation? Well, I hope you detected the sarcasm in that very statement. But why am I talking about her? That's because she's back again, to indulge in some mindless banter, to irk the proletariats in the worst way possible. It's just her visible affinity to waste time over Twitter and other forms of social media, and this time around, she's outdone herself again. © Twitter Recently, over a Tweet, the 'damsel in distress' spoke about the age-old practice of Sati and called Raja Ram Mohan Roy a traitor. And now, she demands a so-called 'Hindu' nation. Twitter is, of course, furious over her lopsided thought process, but we can't help and substantiate a good amount of humour through her thread. Truth Behind Sati Pratha in India https://t.co/x1vn5l6Xcy via @YouTube #Jauhar was an incident related to Padmavati during Mughal Khiljis invasion. Later society with d help of traitors like Raja Ram who Britishers used 2 divide society made Sati into an evil forceful practiceð — PAYAL ROHATGI & Team -BHAKTS of BHAGWAN RAM (@Payal_Rohatgi) 26 May 2019 So, as we all know, Raja Ram Mohan Roy was a social reformer, known for his efforts to abolish the practice of Sati and child marriage. But after Payal tweeted a video on the Sati tradition named 'the truth behind Sati Pratha', she called Ram Mohan Roy a traitor , saying "#Jauhar was an incident related to Padmavati [movie] during Mughal Khiljis invasion. Later society, with the help of traitors like Raja Ram, who Britishers used to divide society, made Sati into an evil forceful practice. (sic)" She also called him a 'chamcha', saying the Britishers used him to 'defame the Sati Tradition' © Twitter Her Tweet said: "No he was a chamcha to Britishers who used him to defame the Sati tradition. Sati tradition was not compulsory but was introduced to prevent the prostitution of Hindu wives by the hands of Mughal invaders. It was the woman's choice. #FeministsofIndia Sati was not regressive." No he was a chamcha to Britishers who used him to defame the Sati tradition. Sati tradition was not compulsory but was introduced to prevent the prostitution of Hindu wives by the hands of Mughal invaders.

But of course, Twiteratti will not let this one go!

Jauhar happened only when Rajputs fought with Mughals or Afghans, as when Mughals defeat them, they treated women like animals. — भारत नरà¥à¤¶ (@ResoluteAction) 26 May 2019 In response to this outpour, India's darling stated that she was not trying to glorify Sati Pratha, while raising the issue of Triple Talaaq. "I am not glorifying it, I am putting across the history of its origin. It was due to Mughal invaders that #Sati started in the 1st place. Understand your history. And yes no one is practising it NOW nor am I asking anyone to practice it. But #TripleTalaq is still ON. (sic)" - Payal Rohatgi on Twitter.

  13. Computex 2019 is currently underway, which means it's time for us to check out some cool new hardware products. After AMD's new chipset announcement, now ASUS has decided to turn up the heat with some kickass products. The company launched a ton of products today, however, it's new “Edition 30” ZenBook laptop is what caught our attention. So, ASUS is celebrating its 30-year-anniversary with this new special edition laptop called the ASUS ZenBook Edition 30. Before we talk a bit more about the product itself, let's just take a moment to appreciate how awesome the laptop looks - © YouTube ASUS The new ASUS ZenBook Edition 30, as you can see, sports a white leather lid cover and an 18-karat rose gold logo, which resembles Star Trek's Starfleet insignia, no? According to ASUS, every piece of leather used to make these laptops have been hand selected, and each panel cover is meticulously sewed by a master tailor. Yes, it sounds like overkill, but hey, it's a limited edition product. Internally, the ZenBook Edition 30 is powered by Intel's 8th Gen Core i7 processor coupled with up to 16GB of RAM and PCIe SSD storage. For graphics, the laptop uses Nvidia's GeForce MX250 discrete GPU. It sports a 13-inch display on the front with minimal bezels. With a 95-per cent screen-to-body ratio, ASUS says this is the world's smallest 13-inch laptop. ASUS is also making special accessories for this laptop. There's a pearl white mouse and a leather sleeve, both of which look equally good. Sadly, ASUS won't tell us when the laptop will go on sale and for how much, so you can't really buy it just yet. Even once it's up for grabs, we're sure it's not going to be cheap.
  14. The world of Netflix is an endless menu that never satiates our appetite. This week, in case you're looking for a little something to binge-watch that catches your fancy and keeps you interested, then allow us to recommend you 'Dead To Me', a dark comedy which depicts life in odd situations and is very real and raw in parts. The brilliant series stars Linda Candellini and Christina Applegate in the leads as Judy and Jen, respectively. The story is simple when you look at it. Jen is a widow who is frustrated with life after her husband Ted dies in a hit-and-run accident and she can't cope with dealing with life as a single mother and is looking for Ted's killer. Then comes Judy who is an over-enthusiastic, super optimistic and suspiciously sacchariferous to the eye. They eventually become friends and Judy helps Jen cope with the loss. It's neither a mush drama, nor is it a soppy soap opera. Together the two women learn to pick each other up and face life, one day at a time. However, there is a looming secret about Jen's dead husband Ted and another stomach-curling revelation which you find out in the first episode only, and that will change your perception about how you perceive the characters completely. People on the internet are absolutely loving it. I watched the first episode of #Deadtome on Netflix yesterday and IT GOT MEEEEEEEE. By the end of the episode was like pic.twitter.com/RlITJWuYJR — RAVEN B. (@RAVIEB) May 23, 2019 Also, Dead To Me, on Netflix is a fucking triumph. Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini are infinitely watchable, the show balances darkness and humor on the edge of a razor, and I am dying to see what happens next. If you haven't watched it yet, do it now — elan gale (@theyearofelan) May 22, 2019 Just started binge-watching #DeadToMe thinking it was a comedy. Then it's a dark comedy. Now it's a mystery?This show has me laughing on the edge of my seat. Also, I want to write down quotes to work into my real life. Is that wrong?#netflix https://t.co/bgcjqMKMN9 — eleni (@elenikoko2) May 25, 2019 The show is sometimes eerily real, so much that it makes you laugh and you kind of feel bad when you laugh on something you really shouldn't, because it will make you look at yourself and say 'that's me' and you won't feel great about it, but then you're only human. It also has a very 'YOU' vibe to it (another brilliant stalker drama on Netflix) and makes you think about who you can really trust. With 10 interesting episodes, this can be your weekend binge.
  15. 'Gaming Addiction' is something that we've been hearing a lot lately, thanks to the influx of popular online multiplayer titles like PUBG Mobile, Fortnite and more. But if you find yourself locked in a room gaming all the time ignoring the world, then you have a serious illness, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). That's right, WHO has revised the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11), and it now, for the first time, includes 'Gaming Disorder' as an addictive behavior disorder. The revision takes effect on January 1, 2022. © Pexels The International Classification of Diseases is a system for classifying diseases and disorders for purposes of epidemiological research, health care management and billing, and clinical treatment. There's a chapter that's set aside for “mental, behavioral or neurodevelopmental disorders,” and gaming is listed there now. You'd be surprised to find out that 'Gaming Disorder' is now listed right after 'Gambling' in ICD-11 and uses the description word-for-word, replacing “gambling” with “gaming”. It says, “Gaming Disorder is a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior ('digital gaming' or 'video-gaming'), which may be online (i.e., over the internet) or offline.” The proposed disorder manifests in three different ways - © Pexels Those with gaming disorder may show “impaired control over gaming,” “increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities,” and “continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurence of negative consequences.” In response to WHO's decision, a lot of industry experts from around the world called out the organisation and asked to rethink its decision. “It's not based on sufficiently robust evidence”, the experts said. Well, we don't know about the experts, but we do believe that we all should collectively do something about “gaming disorder” and the growing concerns around it. We can't let games like PUBG Mobile mess up relationships and put people's lives in jeopardy. It needs to be stopped.
  16. Prime Minister Narendra Modi once again secured the nation's throne with a thumping victory, as BJP single-handedly won more than 300 seats in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. World leaders like US President Donald Trump conveyed his wishes over the phone and tweeted, “India is lucky to have him”. While some people are ecstatic about Modi's victory and are celebrating it the right way, some of his supporters are demanding that tech companies to immediately make the 'Lotus' emoji. Wow! © Reuters Yes, BJP supporters have decided to raise their voice on social media and are asking big names like Google, Apple, WhatsApp, and even Twitter to release a 'Lotus' emoji, which they can use to celebrate the party's historic victory and show their support. Dear @Apple & @WhatsApp We Indians want to see “lotus” symbol in emojis please - as soon as possible - its symbol of purity and today @BJP4India with its lotus symbol has purified #India from dynastic rule of @INCIndia (Like & RT to support please ðð») #ModiPhirSe — The Ordinary Indian (@i_m_tomorrow) May 23, 2019 This isn't the only tweet asking for a Lotus emoji, There are a ton of other users who are going crazy across different platforms demanding a 'Lotus' emoji. While we agree that there's no 'Lotus' emoji on Android or iOS at the moment, and we understand the enthusiasm, it's worth pointing out that it's not that easy to make and release an emoji. There's a huge procedure that needs to be followed for getting an emoji released for public use. It has to go through the Unicode Consortium, which approves reviews and approves only about 50-100 new emojis every year. Well, let's just wait and see if these companies can make it happen and how.
  17. 'Call Of Duty: Mobile' is the next free-to-play game that is currently in Beta on Android. Being one of the biggest gaming franchises of all time, the first-person shooter game is already garnering new players every day and is now PUBG mobile's biggest competition yet. The game is currently working for Android smartphones; however, you need to pre-register to access the game via the Play Store. © Call of duty mobile Having said that, there is a way to access the game without having to wait for registrations. The process is a bit more complicated than simply installing the APK file. The game comes with some classic maps from previous AAA Call of Duty games, multiplayer game modes, battle-royals mode, familial characters and signature weapons. © Call Of Duty Mobile In order to play the game, we recommend you have a file management app already installed on your device. Once you have installed a file manager, follow these essential steps below to make the game work: Download the APK file and additional OBB files from here Install the APK file and extract the OBB files. Copy the OBB files into a folder and name it as “com.activision.callofduty.shooter” Copy the com.activision.callofduty.shooter folder and past into the following path: Phone Storage Android OBB After pasting the files, go ahead and start playing the game. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer You can now register yourself with your Facebook account or play as a guest. You can access the game for now; however, you will lose all your progress once the game officially launches as the game is still in beta.
  18. According to a finding by 9to5Mac, Apple devices have now shown up in the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory database. The new iPhone models have shown up ahead of their release later this year and we finally know what the model numbers are. © YouTube The 2019 iPhones have appeared in the database with model numbers A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223. The database compiles a list of devices that depend on encryption technologies and most of Apple's devices both past and present are on that list. Similarly, earlier this year the iPad Air and iPad mini 5 were registered on the database five months ahead of its launch. According to the 9to5Mac's report, “The A2111, A2161, A2215 identifiers probably represent the new iPhone XR successor. The other model identifiers will be for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max.” The other model numbers are also expected to be different versions of the iPhone 11 and the iPhone R successor as different regions offer different cellular band compatibility. In the case of China, the iPhone comes with a physical dual SIM phone that is exclusive to the region. © Twitter 2019 iPhones are expected to look largely the same as the previous generation while previous leaks have suggested a triple-camera setup at the back. In terms of the feel of the phone, there are rumours that suggest that Apple is opting for a more matte finish instead of the glass back. Other new features include reverse wireless charging for the new AirPods and Apple new more A13 chipset. © Twitter Apple will be adding an extra sensor to both the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11/11Max as a form of upgrades. The iPhone XR is now rumoured to have a dual-camera setup similar to the iPhone XS whereas the iPhone 11 is expected to have a triple camera setup. The iPhone 11 is expected to have a larger camera bump and in the shape of a square. The additional third sensor is said to be an ultra-wide lens and will also be used for more detailed images at a standard zoom level. The new iPhones are expected to be announced at Apple's annual press event that is scheduled to take place sometime in September. Source: 9to5Mac
  19. So the elections are over and the results are out, great. We now move on to the next big event marked in our calendars, maybe even bigger than the voting day for some of us - the ICC World Cup 2019 that begins 30th May 2019 - with all the qualified teams now present in England, trying to get in the groove with the warm-up games scheduled to begin today. Sarfaraz Khan's Pakistan Team had arrived in England exactly a month ago for their bilateral ODI series against the hosts, during which they got absolutely obliterated by Eoin Morgan's side, losing all four matches the two teams played. On the other hand, Virat Kohli's Men in Blue left for the venue from the Mumbai airport on 22nd May, after a strenuous two month long season of the Indian Premier League, which ended with the Indian vice captain, Rohit Sharma lifting the championship trophy for the Mumbai Indians for a record fourth time. Jet set to go ââ#CWC19 #TeamIndia pic.twitter.com/k4V9UC0Zao — BCCI (@BCCI) May 21, 2019 And yes, a lot of players on the Indian roster and the members of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are concerned about the fatigue Indian athletes are feeling because of the IPL and the lack of time to recuperate, our major concern is about the matchup between India and Pakistan which falls on 16th June 2019, according to the World Cup fixtures. After the unfortunate Pulwama attack that took place on this year's Valentine's Day, during which numerous CRPF Jawans were killed in a terror attack planned and executed by the terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, BCCI urged the International Cricket Council to “sever ties with the nation from which terrorism emanates.” © Reuters ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar, however, refused to do so whilst saying that he did not enjoy such authority over the Pakistan because of their 'Permanent' status in the Council. But ever since, both the Board and the fans of Indian cricket seemed to have forgotten about the whole chapter. Was it because of the elections? Was it because of the IPL? We do not know. © Reuters Remember, the final decision of forfeiting the match against Pakistan lies completely at the hands of the Indian cricket board. Letting go of a single match, during the initial rounds to make their protest heard is all well and good but what if the two teams meet again during the latter half of the tournament or maybe even the World Cup final? Is the BCCI willing to roll over the dream of skipper Virat Kohli of winning his first World Cup as the leader and the dream of MS Dhoni of lifting the trophy one more time before retiring, just to prove that one point? Alternatively, will Team India just forget about Pulwama and all the hue and cry the board created about boycotting the neighbouring rivals and play the match like any other?
  20. With a rather abrupt ending to 'Game Of Thrones', the series finale has left some rather gaping questions, that have now sadly become dead ends for the show. Here's a list of unanswered questions from the show that we will probably never get the answers to: 1. What Was The Point Of Jon's Heritage? © HBO Was there even a point to Jon being a Targaryen? The R+L=J theory was significant to the plotline at the very beginning and had caused a lot of noise. I remember when I first started watching the show, I was rather obsessed with Jon Snow's parentage. At that point, the mystery wasn't the identity of his parents, because it was safely assumed that Ned Stark was his biological father. The real question was, who was Jon's mother? And this used to be subject of many passionate debates by the fans. But now that we know that he was a true born Targaryen with the highest claim to the Iron Throne, does this information, which by the way is the only reason that David Benioff, D. B. Weiss got rights to produce the show in the first place, not matter at all? In the aftermath of the Queen'sassaination when the Lords gathered around to listen to what Tyrion had to say (who, by the way, is a prisoner at this point) and justified why Bran should be King, why did he not consider Jon and his claim to the Throne? Despite slaying the Queen, he does have a pretty strong claim to the Throne. 2. Varys And His Birds © HBO Firstly, Varys' execution was damn shady. How can the Master Of Whisperers, who is so conniving that he survived the most unfavourable of circumstances, be so naive? Talking to Jon directly out in the open was not a great idea, but it certainly is not something Varys would do. What happened to him? Did he hit his head against the wall that caused him to take dumb but potentially life-destroying decisions? But anyway, when he's summoned for his execution, he drops his ring in a pot and burns this one letter that he was writing, which contained the truth about what was going on. The rest of the letters were enclosed and sent off. What happened to them? Do the Lords not know? Why is there no mention of this? And if he did manage to get the message sent across, why is there no stir in all the Kingdoms of Westeros? 3. Arya's White Horse © Twitter Arya finds a white horse at the end of the penultimate episode. Some argued that there could possibly be biblical notions attached to this White Horse. Arya is then seen riding out of King's Landing. But wait, in the next episode, she's seen in King's Landing again. How does that work? What was the horse for then? To traverse past the dead burnt bodies and not step on them? It doesn't make any sense, but rather sounds preposterous instead. 4. Is Winter Still Coming? © HBO Talking about the long drawn-out catchphrase synonymous to 'GoT', we deserved to know if Winter was finally coming in the end or not. The new council meeting by Bran was set in the background of something that looked more spring-like? So, is Winter finally gone for good? 5. Bran the Broken © HBO If every main character had a purpose for which they were brought on the show, what was Bran's purpose? We've been told that the Three-Eyed Raven knows everything and has immense power but if that's the case, why doesn't Bran use it? Why does he sit quietly observing what he already knows is going to happen. And the case against him for not changing things doesn't work either. Like he has done many times before, why did he not warg into someone and potentially save thousands of lives in King's Landing? This does somehow make him an accomplice to genocide. But in retrospect, this could've possibly been his plan all along? In normal circumstances, no one would make Bran the King. He's a cripple who apparently can't father children and couldn't possibly further the lineage. And in 'Game of Thrones', we've seen the darkest of things being pulled off by characters just get their hands on the throne. Everyone's creepily obsessed with it, case in point, Daenerys. Could it be possible, that Bran schemed it all in his favour because he can clearly control the past and the present? 6. The Honeycomb and the Jackass This might seem a little irrelevant, but hear me out first. One of the series' long-running secrets, Tyrion's story about bringing a honeycomb and a jackass to a brothel, is a legend in its own right. The joke had been teased two times before the finale- when he was a prisoner at the Eyrie, in Season 1, and during a scene in Season 6, where he shared wine with Grey Worm and Missandei. In Season 1, during Tyrion's trial, he attempts to crack the honeycomb joke, which seems so out-of-place because he's a prisoner being tried for his life, why is he being given the liberty to speak at all? Then in the final episode of Season 8, when Tyrion is Hand of the King to Bran and has a Small Council Meeting, he brings up the joke again, and for a moment, we feel like we are finally going to hear the end of it, which would be perfect given how the show was coming to an end. But, no, the camera cuts and we realize how irrelevant this discussion was. This clearly makes a strong case for bad writing. Instead of showing what's relevant for better closure, we get this. A pointless, incomplete joke. 7. Where Are Daario Nahaaris, Meera Reed & Ellaria Sand? © HBO Daario Nahaaris was a Tyroshi mercenary that was once Dany's adviser and lover but was left behind by Dany when she realized forging new alliances in King's Landing will be more fruitful than taking old ones. What is he doing now? What about Meereen? Meera Reed got Bran back safely to Winterfell, protecting him from the White Walkers and then the plot conveniently forgot about her. Ellaria Sand was locked up in the dungeons to die after watching her daughter die. Did she end up dying? Why did we not get closure on these crucial characters? 8. Why Is There Still A Night's Watch? © HBO What does a Night's Watch defend if there are no White Walkers in the first place? Does it need to exist anymore? A question that no one seems to bother about, except Jon, when he was exiled to the Night's Watch. This is probably why he abandoned it and set on an adventure to discover a world further North. If these scenes held no significance to the main narrative, they shouldn't have been included in the first place. Instead, they could've probably been replaced with significant content that would've made Dany's and Jon's actions convincing, leading up to a satisfactory finale with no loopholes.
  21. When Activision announced the Call of Duty Mobile, I was kind of sceptical. As excited as I was, it mostly sounded as if Activision was trying to jump the bandwagon of PUBG Mobile. The last thing I wanted was Activision and Tencent fleshing out a half-baked title. Well, the battle royale mode of Call of Duty Mobile went live yesterday for beta users on Android, so I decided to check it out. Honestly, it only took me just a few rounds of the game to realise that it's very different from PUBG Mobile. In a good way. In fact, I'd say it's exceptional. Here's why I think so: © Call of Duty Mobile A 'Scout' Or A 'Clown'? Pick Your Poison! As soon as you start the battle royale mode, you won't be dropped in a server for matchmaking. Instead, you'll get an option to select and customise your loadout, which I found to be very similar to the Team Deathmatch mode of the game. Within the loadout screen, you can also choose to select your 'Class'. © Call of Duty Mobile Yes, there are a total of six classes to choose from. You can either play as a Scout, Clown, Medic, Ninja, Defender or Mechanic. Depending on the class you choose, you'll get special perks. Playing as a 'Scout', for instance, you'll get a 'Sensor Dart', with which you can see the hostile position in the radar map. As a 'Medic' you'll be able to set up a medical station that heals you and allies continuously. Yes, it's very similar to the 'Lifeline' Legend in Respawn's 'Apex Legends'. I am not going to get into details and spoil the fun, so I suggest you check out other classes and their perks once you get your hands on the title when it arrives. It's awesome! © Call of Duty Mobile The ability to select the class of your player by itself is a huge differentiator which makes this game very different, and in fact, much better than PUBG. Don't get me wrong, PUBG's simple BR approach isn't bad. But I was kind of getting bored with it. If you're too, then you'll love the Call of Duty Mobile's Battle Royale mode. Where We Droppin' Once you select your loadout and you're good to go, you'll find yourself in the lobby waiting for other players to join in. You'll then be joining 100 other players before getting dropped into the map. If you're playing in a squad or duos, one of the players will be a designated 'Jump Leader', who'll get the players to a select spot in the map. Again, very similar to Apex Legends' 'Jump Master' feature. © Call of Duty Mobile Instead of taking a parachute, as you would in PUBG Mobile, here you'll be gliding down with the help of a wingsuit. Is it better? Hell yes! I was able to fly across the map and land exactly where I wanted to every single time. It's quick and incredibly smooth. From there on, it's pretty much the same gameplay experience. You'll have to collect weapons and other loot and jump right into the action. Your character will automatically pick up all the necessary items from the ground, so you don't really have to worry about it. Just make sure you improvise and look for better loot as you progress through the game. I want to say the experience is very similar to PUBG, but that's not really the case. A Tactical Shootout Call of Duty Mobile offers a military-style tactical experience. Unlike PUBG Mobile's fancy skins, all players are well-camouflaged from the start, so it's incredibly hard to find out where they are. You really have to rely on the sound of the footsteps or their weapons. © Call of Duty Mobile Depending on the 'Class' you chose earlier in the game, you'll be able to use the perks and get some tactical advantage too. I spent most of the time playing as a 'Scout' player, so I was constantly using it to scan the area and find enemies. It was a lot of fun. The game also has vehicles, and trust me, there are a lot of them. From a two-person ATV to a squad Helicopter, there's literally a lot to choose from. Just make sure you know what you're getting yourself into. © Call of Duty Mobile Before wrapping it up, I'd also like to point out that you can revive your teammates even once they've died. Yes, this isn't something you can do in PUBG Mobile. In Call of Duty Mobile, you can pick up your dead teammate's 'Dogtag' and revive them to bring them back into the action. It's very similar to how you can revive your teammates in some modern battle royale titles like Apex Legends, Fortnite, etc. The Final Say Call of Duty Mobile is a kickass battle royale title that lets you explore to your fullest abilities. It's unlike any other tactical game I've played on mobile, so I'll give full marks for that. If you've played Call Of Duty 4's 'Blackout' mode on PC, Xbox One or PS4, then you'll find yourself right at home. It's very similar to that, which is just awesome. As I mentioned earlier, I was getting bored with PUBG Mobile, to be honest, so I had an amazing time with all the new features like the ability to select classes, customise loadout, etc. If you're bored of PUBG Mobile or Fortnite too, then you'll have a great time slaying enemies in Call of Duty Mobile. Well, at least until there's a new battle royale game in town.
  22. When Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings were playing with all their might to clinch the IPL 2019 trophy; people watching the match live and the ones who were watching it on TV were busy crushing over this mystery MI fangirl.

In fact, the camera person should get a separate award for solely focusing on the girl, when the match was in its crucial stage.

They are also good at finding out who the mystery girl is, just like they did with other IPL teams' fangirls. So, once again, people tapped into their inner Sherlock and found out who this girl is, who just couldn't stop cheering for Mumbai Indians.

  23. Earlier this year, Guneet Monga's 'Period. End of Sentence' created history (both for the world and India) by winning the Best Documentary Short Subject at the Oscars 2019, and now, it looks like the 92nd Academy Awards too will be pretty much owned by India as another short film, 'Kamali', has qualified for the Oscars 2020. In fact, 'Kamali' recently won praises and the Best Documentary award at the Atlanta Film Festival. 'Kamali' is based on the life of Suganthi, a single mother from Tamil Nadu and how she strives each day to raise her 9-year-old skateboarder daughter. Facebook According to a report in The News Minute, Kamali's mentor Aine Edwards said. "When Suganthi (Kamali's mother) sees her children, she reflects on her childhood and how she could not do the things she wished to do because of the society. Today, she wants Kamali to taste the freedom she did not have." Aine further added, "The crew came and shot the film over six weeks. After it was edited, they even sent it to the Mumbai International Short Film Festival in December 2018, where it won Best Director Award." Twitter When asked about the awards the short film has won so far, Kamali's mother said, "I think this award is the biggest achievement of my life, only after my children, of course." For those of you who didn't know, 9-year-old Kamali Moorthy is the only girl skateboarder from Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu. She has reportedly, travelled across the country along with professional skateboarding teams to promote skateboarding as a sport. Kamali also dreams of becoming a professional surfer. The 24-minute short film, 'Kamali' is directed by Sasha Rainbow, a filmmaker from New Zealand. Let's hope that 'Kamali' wins an award at Oscars 2020 and makes sure that everyone across the globe knows how talented this little girl is and how her mother struggles each day to give her a better life.
  24. Aladdin's character has been pretty much famous among the 90s kids. When the news broke that it's coming back on the big screen, fans went gaga and wanted to see the popular singer Zayn Malik as the new Aladdin. But, Canadian actor Mena Massoud was roped in for the role. Now, the music video of 'A Whole New World' featuring Zayn Malik and Zhavia Ward is out and it's magical. In the video, you can see Zayn and Zhavia walk around New York City and painting the town red with love. Well, there's not even a single frame wherein you get to see the two of them together but it still will make you fall in love with the whole setting of the song. Fans had previously speculated that Zayn would team up with Selena Gomez for the track. Now, Twitter users are going berserk seeing Zayn and Zhavia together. Not just that, fans have actually expressed their desire of seeing Zayn as Aladdin. Take a look at the song: Check out the Twitter reactions here: As I will see Zayn from now...#ZaynMalik #AWholeNewWorld pic.twitter.com/L7FzHuxN1S — ðð ð¡ð¤.âð (@Roosezay28) May 9, 2019 AIN'T NOBODY GONNA BE BETTER ALADDIN THAN ZAYN i said what i said pic.twitter.com/DUhxkHYUra — MIEL STANS ZARRY ðð (@blastyIes_) May 9, 2019 zayn should've played aladdin no one can tell me otherwise pic.twitter.com/rnW3469W80 — Nuria (@nuriayoldi) May 9, 2019 Zayn is the only #Aladdin I know. pic.twitter.com/breCGoNQOg — Bo (@stupideBeau) May 9, 2019 So apparently Zayn has 2 songs and 2 videos for Aladdin, I could not be more looking forward to this soundtrack pic.twitter.com/VrkHdNAWLx — Báµ¢â (@zjmst4n) May 8, 2019 What do you think?

  25. Google announced a bunch of cool new Android Q features last night during the Google I/O 2019 keynote, and the update is now available for a bunch of smartphones. But before we check out the list of phones that will receive the update, here are all the cool new features of Android Q: Live Caption © YouTube Live caption feature, as the name suggests, will put an end to your subtitle woes. Yes, Google has revealed that this particular feature will take the words spoken in a video and display captions in real time. Live caption feature is not limited to just the videos you watch on, say, YouTube or Netflix, it can even show you captions in a video you've taken on your phone or any videos which you've received on WhatsApp, etc. So cool, right? Dark Mode © YouTube Yup, Android Q is getting a system-wide dark mode called 'Dark Theme'. So, the dark mode, besides making your phone look cool, can also help you get a little more juice out of your phone's battery. On Android Q, you'll be able to enable the dark mode by simply switching a toggle. New Gesture Navigation © YouTube Gesture navigation is something which Google had introduced with the last version of Android, but now, it's going all in. Honestly, we think it's very similar to the gesture navigation which we have on the iPhones. Here's how it works - In Android Q, there's now a thin, long white bar at the bottom instead of the 'pill and back button combo. You can simply swipe up from within an app to go home or swipe up and drag across to go into the multitasking view. To get to the app drawer, you can just swipe up from the home screen. To go back to the previous screen, you can swipe in from either side of the display. Yes, the new gestures on Android Q are very similar to Apple offers on the new iPhones, but it's not necessarily a bad thing because the iPhones gestures are fluid and they work like a charm. Permissions and Privacy © YouTube Much of the Google I/O keynote last night was about security and privacy features. Yes, Google seems to be taking the user privacy very seriously, and it shows with this new build of Android. The company has added a new 'Privacy section to settings, which will have a mix of different settings to let you take control of your privacy. There's a lot of ground to be covered in this section, but the gist of it all is that Google is very serious about user privacy and it wants the users to be on the front and centre of it all. Focus Mode © Google Google already introduced an extensive set of features to keep you away from the phone under the 'Digital Wellbeing' tag last year with Android P. Well now, the company is adding a new feature called 'Focus Mode'. This new mode is just like Do Not Disturb feature, except you'll be able to pick the apps that you find distracting or tempting, and shut them down for some time. It's a simple idea, but we think it'll users be more productive. Apart from the aforementioned features, Android Q brings a lot of other new things like Parental control, changes to notifications, the way the security updates are handled, and more. List of phones that can enrol in the Android Q beta - · Google Pixel 3, 3XL · Google Pixel 3a, 3a XL · Google Pixel 2, 2XL · Google Pixel, XL · ASUS Zenfone 5Z · Essential PH-1 · Nokia 8.1 · Huawei Mate 20 Pro · LG G8 ThinQ · OnePlus 6T · Oppo Reno · Realme 3 Pro · Sony Xperia XZ3 · Tecno Spark 3 Pro · Vivo X27 · Vivo NEX S · Vivo NEX A · Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G · Xiaomi Mi 9 If you have any of the devices mentioned above, you can now enrol for the Android Q Beta and check out all the new features.
