  1. Football, as a sport, has no dearth of exciting talents and iconic superstars who've managed to carve their own niche in the beautiful game over the years. While some win coveted trophies and awards, others elate fans with their impeccable football skills. But, then there are those who serve as great characters in the sport for being true to their own, uncanny nature. And, without a doubt, Zlatan Ibrahimovic belongs to the latter category. From a rare breed of footballers, Ibrahimovic is one of the most entertaining characters to have graced the beautiful game. He is a prolific striker who has a knack for scoring impossible goals. From the overhead bicycle kick to long-range screamers, Ibrahimovic has scored it all to become an absolute fan-favourite. Take Zlatan Ibrahimovic for example, he's mostly considered to be funny because he is so arrogant. I've never been called out for retweeting a video of his. pic.twitter.com/q79ADgoNYi — ineshelene (@inihelene) July 14, 2019 But, as much as his crazy goals, Ibrahimovic is also famous for his uncanny behaviour and quirky responses off the field. Whether he is plying his trade on the field or giving an interview off it, the moment you see Ibrahimovic in the spotlight, you know something's going to happen (generally entertaining). He may no longer be in his prime, but there seems to be slowing down for Zlatan, neither in terms of skills nor in quirky remarks. In the latest incident of Zlatan being Zlatan, the Swedish footballer didn't just take a dig at Cristiano Ronaldo, but absolutely roasted him with a savage comment. MLZ @LAGalaxypic.twitter.com/X8YvMO8cRW — Zlatan IbrahimoviÄ (@Ibra_official) April 1, 2018 Following a sensational run in the Major League Soccer (MLS), Zlatan has been linked with AC Milan with a possible move to join the Serie A football club. Owing to the speculations, the 38-year-old was recently asked whether he will find competition from Ronaldo who recently picked the Best Player award in the Italian league. © Reuters Responding to the burning question in the most Zlatan manner, the former LA Galaxy star claimed that the Portuguese is not even the real Ronaldo. “I will find the real Ronaldo in Italy? None of it. There is only one Ronaldo, the Brazilian!,” he said in a recent interview with GQ. Zlatan has always looked up to Brazilian legend (Ronaldo), who played for teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter and AC Milan. “When he played, everyone wanted to copy it, the movement, that little bag, bam-bam. He had too elegant a style. He was the one who made me stand in front of the television watching the game,” he added. View the full article
  2. Humans have wiped out more than 50 percent of earth's wildlife for their selfish needs and the ripple effect of that still carries on. After the last male White Rhino died last year in March, it's now the last Sumatran Rhino in Malaysia. The Sumatran Rhino has become extinct in Malaysia after the last one of the species died of cancer. Now, let's first focus on what the word 'extinction' really means, since we haven't experienced it yet, within our species. 'Extinction' is complete and absolute termination of an organism or a group of organisms or a species, from the face of this earth. This literally means there is no way to evoke a complete species unless of course there is a rare phenomenon such as the 'Lazarus Taxa', where a species presumed extinct, suddenly 'reappears', after a period of long absence. But unfortunately, that's not going to be the case for the Northern White Rhino, unless of course nature performs an absolute miracle! (c)ABC The wildlife department in Eastern Sabah state on Borneo island said the Rhino, named Iman, died of natural causes due to shock in her system. She had uterine tumours since her capture in March 2014. Iman was 25-years old and was suffering from pain due to the growing pressures from the uterine tumour on her bladder, dying sooner than she was expected to, according to department director Augustine Tuuga. Iman's death was announced six months after the death of the country's only male Rhino in Sabah. Efforts to breed the Rhino have been a little futile, but the authorities in Sabah have harvested their cells for possible reproduction. “Despite us knowing that this would happen sooner rather than later, we are so very saddened by this news,” said Sabah Environment Minister Christina Liew. (c)Emma Napper He also added that Iman had escaped death a few times over the last couple of years, due to massive blood loss, but each time the facility managed to nurse her back to health, also obtaining her egg cells for a possible collaboration with Indonesia, to produce the endangered animal species though artificial insemination. (c)USA Today The Sumatran rhino is the only rhino with two horns and the smallest of the rhinoceros species. The species was also fund in India but sadly, its numbers shrunk due to deforestation and poaching. A WWF report states that only 80 are left in the world, mostly concentrated towards Borneo and Sumatra and at the rate at which we're abusing our environment, it wouldn't be long enough till these 80 get extinct too someday!

  3. Less than a day ago, Joker smashed past $1 billion in box office returns, making it the most successful R-Rated film in history. This begs the question for both fans and studio executives - 'Do we want a sequel?' Surely enough, director Todd Phillips already has an answer, and it's a complex one. According to Phillips, any potential second film must be 'thematically similar and tonally appropriate.' A fair enough request, given that Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal of the complex villain held more in common with psychological drama than the action-thrillers we've come to associate with the Batman universe. In an interview with the LA Times, Phillips said: "It couldn't just be this wild and crazy movie about the Clown Prince of Crime.” © Warner Bros "It would have to have some thematic resonance in a similar way that Joker does. Because I think that's ultimately why the movie connected, it's what's going on underneath.” "So many movies are about the spark and this is about the powder. If you could capture that again in a real way, that would be interesting." Curiously, Phoenix himself was also asked this question in a previous interview, again with LA Times. Since he's been incredibly skeptical of media enquiries and targeted questions in the past, it may be anyone's guess as to how serious he was, but the 45-year-old actor definitely addressed the topic. “Long before the release or before we had any idea if it would be successful, we talked about sequels,” he shared. "In the second or third week of shooting, I was like, 'Todd, can you start working on a sequel? There's way too much to explore'. It was kind of in jest - but not really." © Warner Bros However, he clarified: "I wouldn't just do a sequel just because the first movie is successful. "That's ridiculous.” "I guess the fear was that you'd get locked into doing something repeatedly that you don't really care about, that doesn't motivate you or excite you. Part of the whole attraction to me [of Joker] was there was no expectations.” The actor seals up the topic by confirming the project's agreements. “I didn't sign a deal to do [more movies]. It was a one-off,” Phoenix adds. View the full article

  9. Rajkummar Rao has, time and again, proven his mettle through his stellar acting skills and with his dedication in every role he plays. The actor has given us several reasons to praise him through his portrayal of different characters with such excellence. From Trapped to playing the role of an evil genius in Judgementall Hai Kya, Rajkummar has majorly evolved in terms of his career. © Viacom Motion Pictures However, success did not come to him overnight, as it wasn't that easy for the actor to make it big in the industry. In an interview with Pinkvilla, the actor revealed that there were times when he would have only Rs 18 in his account. “It used to be tough times for me. I come from a very humble middle-class background and there was a time in school when I didn't have money and my teachers paid my school fees for two years,” he said. © Balaji Motion Pictures “When I came to the city, we were living in a really small house. I was paying Rs 7000 of my share which I thought was too much. I needed around 15-20000 every month to survive and there were times I would get a notification that I have only 18 rupees left in my account. My friend would have 23 rupees,” Rao added.

Styled by @thetyagiakshay Assisted by @mayuri_1192 @arpitajoshii #rajkummarrao #festive #MIC #stylefile #akshaytyagiforstylecell #dazzletassel #MadeInChina A post shared by Raj Kummar Rao (@rajkummar_rao) on Oct 6, 2019 at 5:35am PDT Those who have stayed in Mumbai would totally relate to what Rajkummar went through in the initial days of his struggle period. He also shared, “There's a friend of mine - Vinod - who's also an actor and we used to travel for auditions on our bikes. I knew nothing about the presentation - of how to look, what to wear. With the pollution around, we would just get down and clean other's faces with rose water and think that it's the best version of ourselves.” On the work front, Rajkummar is all set to entice his fans with his upcoming movie, Made In China.

  10. This is the second year where OnePlus has partnered with McLaren and the result has been an exclusive OnePlus 7T Pro that uses McLaren's design philosophy on the phone. To be fair, the smartphone is identical to the normal variant with the only difference being branding, accents of papaya orange based on McLaren's racing cars and the incorporation of McLaren's Speedtail design. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Speedtail is a limited-production sports car from McLaren that apparently hits a top speed of 250mph and has the same design on the canopy control panel that you can find on the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition. The back of the phone is glossy, smooth and the same canopy control panel pattern has been etched underneath the glass of the phone. While the idea of the design is cool, it is quite confusing as it doesn't resemble anything that can be easily identifiable. Not everyone knows about the Speedtail, let alone the design patterns you can find inside. Apart from the McLaren logo, you will often find yourself trying to explain the meaning behind the design of the phone. Having said that, if you are a super fan of McLaren cars, you will somewhat recognise the pattern at the back. Personally, it looks like a tattoo design that may have looked good as a concept but doesn't translate that well when etched. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla To be honest, I had to look up all of this up before writing about the phone. When I first saw the phone, the only thing that I could recognise was the McLaren logo. Having said that, the subtle papaya orange on the edges and the side of the phone looks awesome. I really liked this design on the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition and the same can be said for the OnePlus 7T Pro version too. The phone also comes with an exclusive theme, icons and wallpapers that you can only find on the McLaren Edition of the OnePlus 7T Pro. From the lock-screen clock to the font colour, you will find McLaren's papaya orange colour throughout the phone. It isn't garish in any way and is probably my favourite thing on the phone. The in-screen fingerprint scanner also has a different animation where it flurries an orange and green animation every time you scan your fingerprint. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Out of the box, you will get a black with an orange accent wall charger and an orange braided USB-C cable. It's the same OnePlus 30T wall charger that can fast charge the smartphone to 100% in an hour. The smartphone also comes with an exclusive case for the phone that has been built with carbon fibre on the sides and Alcantara down the middle. Alcantara is a type of synthetic textile that is commonly used in cars and has a suede-like texture. You can find this material in clothes, helmets, handbags and also on McLaren car seats, dashboard trim etc. To complete the look of the case, there is a chrome McLaren logo at the bottom. Is It Worth It? If you aren't a fan of F1 cars or McLaren, then this phone is probably not for you. However, if you are a super fan who wants the bragging rights and have the patience to understand the design of the phone, the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition may appeal to you. It starts at Rs 58,999 and is in no way cheap, but if you want a piece of the most exclusive OnePlus phone, this is probably for you.
  11. Lewis Hamilton, the guy who rules the asphalt race circuits all around the world recently took to his Instagram account to announce that the world would soon come to an end if we continue to eat animals. "Hey world, I hope everyone's enjoying their day. I'm sad right now with the thought of where this world is going,” wrote the 34-year-old Formula One world champion. i am lewis hamilton, lewis hamilton is me pic.twitter.com/PTOqMM3aEu — ðððð (@lovelyleclerc) October 15, 2019 "Extinction of our race becoming more and more likely as we over use our resources. The world is a messed up place. World leaders either uneducated or don't care about the environment at all. I urge you to do some research, find the compassion I know you have within you to recognise what you are contributing to in terms of what you eat which keeps the meat and dairy industry flourishing and therefore deforestation, animal cruelty, our seas and climate decaying on a daily basis. Go vegan, it is the only way to truly save our planet today. It can be done so quickly, all you have to do is put your mind to it. Honestly I feel like giving up on everything. Shut down completely. Why bother when the world is such a mess and people don't seem to care. I'm going to take a moment away to gather my thoughts. Thank you to those of you who do give a damn about the world." This is where the hypocrisy steps in. Formula One as a whole burns approximately 7 million gallons of jet fuel during just one season just to bring the “sport” to the fans all over the world. Which essentially means that even before the race begins and the “super fast”cars turn on their engines, F1 has already emitted a staggering 147 million pounds of carbon dioxide. A single formula 1 car emits 17 tons of carbon dioxide a year. So F1 is dull and bad for the planet too! — Jonathan Baldwin â (@jbaldwin) April 1, 2009 Personally, Hamilton turned vegan a couple of years ago in hopes of contributing to the cause of saving the planet. However, according to a Daily Mail report, the racer has his dog Coco fly from his Malibu house in his private jet to “catch up” with Roscoe, his second dog who prefers to live in the UK. The 5,400 mile flight between Los Angeles and Heathrow generates 1.67 tonnes of CO2. Lewis Hamilton concerned about climate change. Sweet coming from a man that fly's his dog around the world on his private jet... — Neil Johnson (@neil66johnson) October 16, 2019 So, maybe there's another way to save our planet other than turning vegan? Maybe Hamilton himself can contribute towards filling the personal hole that he has dug in our Ozone layer by simple having his dogs live together and reduce the number of trips his private jet makes? I mean, if he can ask us to turn vegan for the sake of our planet, we can at least ask him to reunite his pets Coco and Roscoe, albeit it will cause some initial discomfort the bulldogs. Alternatively, the sudden urge to write such a heartfelt appeal to his fans to boycott all animal-based products could be to promote the vegan burger joint that the Englishman recently invested in? @LewisHamilton goes VEGAN. Feels like giving up on everything. Well that's a shocker ðð I wonder if he will give up on his new business venture = VEGAN Restaurant ð NEAT BURGER £23 for 2 for shite (McDonald type) food + another £10 for drinks. ðhttps://t.co/tKjOhlFrja pic.twitter.com/AjULPAppH5 — Vin©ï¸ent Harris (@Vhtempopro) October 16, 2019 Which simply makes the whole scenario even more disappointing because that would mean that Hamilton doesn't actually care about the environment and just wants to make profits off the ongoing climate crisis. Twitter users called BS on the racer's phony appeal: @LewisHamilton I am super fan of yours. But this #Vegan malarkey from you is utterly unjustifiable. I mean how can I when you Drives cars that you do with tries and fuel you burn through, The jet that you fly in around the world in. I mean Seriously mate think about it?? — Munawwar Ashraf (@Munawwar_) October 16, 2019 Will you go to Berlin by air? Please have the vegan meal on-board as that will offset the rest of the emissions causing climate change. You'll be a real hero if you do. — Martin Lopez (@Martin_Lopez) October 16, 2019 You need to get @LewisHamilton on and ask him about being a vegan and wanting to save the world and then ask him how much co2 his car gives off at his work place @piersmorgan @susannareid100 — Kenny newey (@NeweyKenny) October 16, 2019 Opens up a vegan restaurant then uses his platform to extol the virtues of veganism - rather transparent ulterior motive there @LewisHamilton — Troglodytarum Vos (@sbbjenny) October 16, 2019 @LewisHamilton So you want everyone to go Vegan to save the planet BUT it is fine for you to earn millions driving a F1 car while jetting around the World??? Why not lead by example. — Paul Lister ð¬ð§ (@Paul_Lister73) October 16, 2019
  12. ICC World Cup 2019 started out on a great note, with fans from all corners of the cricketing world tuning in to witness some of the best teams take each other head-on at the greatest platform there is in the sport. Sadly, the infamous English weather took over and literally washed out all the excitement and entertainment right out of the quadrennial tournament. Exactly how bad are the weather conditions in England? Well, in the last four days, we have only seen one match and less than eight overs of another match in total with eight teams getting one point each without putting in zero to negligible effort all due to the rains disrupting some of the greatest matches of the Cricket World Cup, one of which included the clash between the two teams that remain undefeated during the ongoing contest ie, India and Pakistan. Things have become so frustrating that it is almost comical now. Indian bowling all-rounder Kedar Jadhav even pushed out a video on the internet requesting the heavy, non-stop rains to move to Maharashtra and let them play cricket. Haha Kedar Jadhav asking rains from England to shift to Maharashtra ðâ¤ï¸ #INDvNZ #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/ZcdoKcypkT — Saurabh (@Boomrah_) June 13, 2019 In the same comical tone, the fans of the Men in Blue have begun a fun banter with the supporters of Sarfaraz Ahmed's Pakistan cricket team, letting them know that their chances of winning against Virat Kohli and the Indian cricket team are extremely slim. They went on to say that the only way for Team Pakistan to save themselves from a horrible and humiliating loss at the hands of the Bleed Blue army, is to pray that the downpour happens once again at Old Trafford, Manchester on Father's Day, this Sunday. This Sunday, the best way for Pakistan to avoid defeat in the match against India is to pray for rain, which is likely to spoil the game. Otherwise, Pakistan's defeat is sure. — Dr. Ashok Dhamija (@ashokdhamija) June 14, 2019 There is possibility that Pakistan will have a happy memory in this world cup. And may gain points against India There is plenty of chance for rain and match being washed out. — Chowkidar Vikram Joshi (@vikyjoshi3) June 14, 2019 Pakistan praying for rain and India showing them way to a na pakistan Train — MUKESH SURANA (@mukeshsurana) June 14, 2019 Pakistan team praying for Rain on Sunday against India because Baap rocks on Father's Day #ShameOnICC #ShameOnICC pic.twitter.com/B6Dkg62RJD — manish Agrawal (@MkAgrawal003) June 14, 2019 Only rain can save pakistan team from team india..#CWC — Puneet Suri (@Puneetsuri1) June 13, 2019 All jokes aside, India versus Pakistan is arguably the biggest match of World Cup 2019, maybe even bigger than the tournament final and if unfortunately, the rain does washout the Father's Day main event, the World Cup might lose out on whatever viewership it is enjoying right now.
  13. Microsoft finally showed us some more detailed about the upcoming Halo game last night at E3 and its back in action with Master Chief. Halo Infinite is apparently an open-world game and we also got to see Cortana back in his helmet after a very long time. The game is set to launch next year on Holiday 2020 alongside Xbox Scarlett as a launch title. © Microsoft The sixth instalment in the franchise was teased last year at E3 and the new trailer gives us a closer look at Master Chief. The trailer showed a UNSC soldier being stranded in space and gets contacted by a ship nearby. In the process of locating the ship, the soldier discovers Master Chief floating in space in survival mode. Master Chief is brought back to life from Survival Mode and the ship is soon attacked by enemies. Master Chief then gets ready to face the enemies that later transitions into the title screen. Master Chief is then seen slotting Cortana into his helmet while her voice can be heard saying, "I chose you because you were special. I knew we would be perfect together. And I was right.” © Microsoft Microsoft shared a vague description of the game that says it finds "Master Chief on an all-new adventure as he uncovers the mysteries surrounding the appearance of The Pilot and the desolate remains of a Halo ring.” Halo Infinite will be also coming to Xbox One and PC, and will also be included in Microsoft's new Xbox Game Pass subscription service. This will be the first time a Halo Game will be coming to PC at the same time as its console launch. Are you excited for Halo Infinite? Have you seen the trailer yet? If not, you can watch it below to know more details about the upcoming game.
  14. Ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019 matchup between West Indies and Pakistan, we called both the teams two of the most unpredictable sides of the tournament who could either do exceedingly well and look like world champions or crash and burn like test dummies. Now, after experiencing the way things went down during the game, it would be an educated guess to say which side played like the kings and the other, their squires. Sarfaraz Ahmed's squad began their 2019 World Cup journey with one of the worst performances in cricketing history for the country. Scoring a total of 105 runs before getting all out in the 22nd over of their innings and thanks to Chirs 'Universe Boss' Gayle's crackling start to the Windies innings, the Carrabean stars were able to wrap up the game quickly and enjoy their evening celebrating the easy win. Credit: Reuters With some of their top batsmen like Imam-ul-Haq, Haris Sohail and the skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed, himself returning back to the pavilion with their score in single digits, it seems as if, Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate, is their only hope. The 21-year-old seems to be ahead of the Pakistani cricket team in both, batting skills and the confidence to banter against a team like India. She displayed her prowess in both departments during the opening event of the Cricket World Cup 2019 during the '60-Second Challenge' in which two representatives from every participating nation were to score the maximum number of runs in a minute. Representing Pakistan were Malala and cricketer Azhar Ali and finished second from the bottom. The Indian duo of Bollywood fame Farhan Akhtar and former Indian head coach Anil Kumble were not in their top form and finished rock bottom at the event. Credit: Twitter “I really enjoyed playing here today. We were okay, not too bad… but India came last,” the Nobel Prize winner had said after the challenge got over. Now, the way the national team of Pakistan played against Jason Holder's boys, it might not be a bad idea to give Malala and her batting skills a shot in the next game and it is something the people of the Twitter world agree on, as well: Cant believe Malala Scored better than Farhan Azimi in Street Cricket Contest. #PakvWI — John Wick (@malikasimriaz) May 30, 2019 #PAKvWI @windiescricket will win definitely in style..â @TheRealPCB Need batting performance of @Malala to winðð — bhavesh kumar shakey (@Shakeybhavesh) May 31, 2019 Dont blame us for this batting performance.

  15. Apple I was the first computer hand-built by Steve Wozniak way back in 1976 originally for $666 (Rs 47,000) where it came with a board that could be hooked to a TV and keyboard. The original computer never came with a casing which is why this particular version was sold in a briefcase. © Wikipedia Commons Today, the same computer was sold at an auction for $471,000 (Rs 3.3 Crore) and came with a built-in keyboard, original manuals, a handful of magazines with articles about the Apple I. The auctioned piece also came with compatible hardware such as an SWTPC PR-40 dot matrix printer, extremely rare photocopies of the original Apple founding paperwork and other items. © YouTube Nobody knows the exact number of Apple I computers that were made; however, some estimate only a total of around 200 devices were made. As of today, only 68 such computers exist in the world according to the Apple-I Registry run by enthusiasts. This particular Apple I computer that was auctioned off has been listed as number 10. The Apple I plays a significant role in Apple's history as it was the first product that helped in financing the creation of the company. Production of the Apple I was discontinued on September 30th, 1977 and was felled by its successor in the same year. © Wikipedia Commons According to the Apple I Registry “Both Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak have stated that Apple did not assign serial numbers to the Apple l. Several boards have been found with numbered stickers affixed to them, which appear to be inspection stickers from the PCB manufacturer/assembler. “ Source: TechCrunch, Christies
  16. The thing that sets Kartik Aaryan's style game apart from everyone else, is the sheer relatability and cool quotient. He has been proving it time and time again with his woke sartorial choices, and he reminds us of it, every now and then. The latest instance was when he wore a pair of white trainers - a pair we think is one of the most playful pairs we have seen this year.

  17. Black Shark 2, the gaming phone that we've been waiting to get our hands on for a long time, is finally here in India. It packs pretty much everything that you'd expect from a gaming phone in 2019 like a powerful Snapdragon 855 processor, up to 12GB of RAM and more. Let's check it out. To start with, the Black Shark 2 packs a 6.39-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340×1080 pixels resolution. It's doesn't have a 90Hz display like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but the display takes advantage of features like “Fast Finger” and “Magic Touchh”, and has a 43.5ms response time. The “Magic Press” tech, in case you're wondering, works like Apple's 3D display, meaning you'll be able to press down harder on the display to actuate different functions. © Black Shark Internally, the Black Shark 2 is powered by Qualcomm's 7nm Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. It also features Liquid Cooling 3.0 for even improved heat dissipation. There are 2 vapour chambers and a copper plate inside the phone to keep things cool while gaming. As for the optics, the Black Shark 2 sports dual rear cameras with a 48MP (f/1.75) primary sensor and 12MP (f/2.2) secondary sensor. On the front, there's a 20MP (f/2.0) selfie shooter. The phone also comes equipped with a huge 4,000 mAh battery for which Black Shark is also including a USB Type-C 27W fast-charger. © YouTube All these beefy internals are packed inside a body that looks kickass from the outside. The company says the phone's ergonomic design resembles that of a sports car. Seriously, the Black Shark 2 looks like a true gaming phone with its curvaceous build and metal+glass design. Oh BTW, the phone also comes with LED strips on the edges and a glowing Black Shark logo at the back. Black Shark 2 Accessories In addition to the phone itself, the company also showcased a bunch of accessories to go along with it. There's a fancy cooling fan attachment and switch-style dual controllers. Lastly, you can also get an HDMI to USB Type-C cable and use the “console mode” to hook it up to, say, a TV. Pricing and Availability The Black Shark 2 gaming phone has been launched at Rs. 39,999 in India for the base variant with 6GB RAM & 128GB storage. You can also get your hands on the 8GB+128GB variant for Rs. 49,999. The phone will exclusively be available for sale on Flipkart from 4th June.
  18. While the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are probably celebrating their victory and the chance of running the country for another 5 years, there's one guy who is crying his heart out for losing in the Lok Sabha 2019 elections. YouTube Neetu Shuttern Wala, who hails from Jalandhar, stood independently in the recently held polls and claims to have gotten only 5 votes. When he was being interviewed, he broke down before the camera and started crying. Well, he is crying not because of the alleged 5 votes. He is crying because he got 5 votes despite having 9 people in his own family. Yes, his own family members betrayed him and didn't vote for him. The man, while wiping his tears, blamed his family and accused the EVM machines of tampering in the voting process, which resulted in his loss. The reporter then proceeded to leave no stone unturned to rub salt on the poor guy's wounds and asked him, "When your own family doesn't support you, how can you expect outsiders to help you?" Well, the man is so disheartened with the results that he has decided to not run for the elections ever again. We feel you man, we really do! But, people on Twitter are having a field day laughing at his misery.

Apparently, his voting tally currently stands at 856.
  19. After dreading the last two episodes of 'Game of Thrones', we're certainly banking on this particular fan theory which is currently giving us some serious dragon fever! Why you ask? Well, according to this theory, we will see more dragons in the next two episodes and there's a trace of hope, in the episode 5 promo for that to happen. © HBO Even though the last episode seemed rather terrible, one takeaway was that Daenerys Targaryen has only Drogon left by her side. Well, it's quite sad TBH because we're not over Rheagal's death yet and we wish the writers had enough bandwidth to acknowledge these silly flaws! Like, how in God's name can't you see a fleet down below if you're riding yea high, over the sea? Well, anyway, yes we lost yet another dragon and now the MoD (mother of dragons), has only one left for her epic face-off with Cersei Lannister. Even though the odds aren't too great for Dany, with Cersei's Golden Company and those giant scorpion crossbows, she is ready for Drogon. Besides that, Dany's advisors like Tyrion and Varys are losing trust in their queen and she's lost her most important ally, Sansa Stark. © HBO But hang on! Daenerys might have a reclamation point somewhere along the remaining storyline and we happen to believe that because a fan theory states there might be more dragons! Yes! you read that right. Now, let's focus on the how! So, these other dragons that we're talking about are apparently Drogon's offsprings who will come back to save the day for their dear grandma, which also means Drogon is a female dragon. DUH! Now, let's look at how. Well, if you've seen the promo for episode 5, you'll see Euron looking at something coming toward him like he's miscalculated its presence. Well, if it's not Jon Snow coming down in a parachute, it's definitely something Euron wasn't expecting, since Drogon was already there and Euron was aware of her (the dragon's) presence. So what could it be? Now let's backtrack to Season 4 and 5 where Drogon is missing the entire time. While Rhaegal and Viserion are tied down with chains in a cave, so they don't cause any more destruction, Drogon is roaming about in Old Valyria, the old dragon city, where she may have laid eggs? Remember when Jorah and Tyrion pass by Old Valyria and they see a dragon fly by there? Yup, that's Drogon for sure. So, anyway, there's also a scene, where Drogon emerges from a cliff and burns a field where the cattle are grazing and she takes the sheep to probably feed her baby dragons. The same farmer approached Dany in Mereen, in a later scene and complained about her dragon ruining crops and cattle. Drogon was just a pregnant dragon feeding her babies and herself is all! So if Drogon was wreaking havoc on local shepherds and eating up a ton of livestock then, her dragons would be full grown by now we're assuming. Which means there could be a possibility they've followed mama into war and are ready to fight for her and their grandma Dany, to burn King's Landing to ashes. And this could also be why Euron is looking towards the sky in the teaser, like this: © HBO Maybe we could be absolutely wrong since we're terribly missing the two dead dragons but there isn't any other way Dany can kill Cersei and her army unless of course, she has something bigger and probable in hand. And we don't mean Jon. Let's see what happens this Monday anyway. Watch the teaser for episode 5, Season 8 here
  20. Samsung has flooded the market with some great mid-range and budget smartphones that give everything you could ask for in each segment. The Galaxy A70 is one of those smartphones that does everything you want from a smartphone. It has a bright screen, good cameras, respectable performance and a massive battery. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We've been using the smartphone for a while to test out all the bells and whistles and it's got some unique features. It's got a beautiful tall screen for people who love to watch videos, an in-display fingerprint sensor and a good camera system for Rs 28,990. Sure, the competition is hard in this price segment but the Galaxy A70 stands out for some reasons. Here are our findings of Samsung's new smartphone: Design & Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The first obvious thing you notice about the Galaxy A70 is its tall 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display. It's got Samsung's Infinity-U display i.e. it has a tiny water-drop notch design. The aspect ratio of the smartphone is also unique i.e. 21:9 and almost bezel-less. It has a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels with 331ppi density and is one of the most beautiful displays we've seen on a smartphone that costs less than Rs 30,000. You can tweak the contrast levels and the colour accuracy according to your own liking. We switched the settings especially when we were watching something on Netflix or when gaming. The sheer size of the display is the real winner here. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The larger screen also means that the smartphone is considerably larger and even though it took us a while to get used to the phone, we never found it to be overwhelming. If you have small hands, you may face a slight issue but overall the ergonomics are on point. The design of the phone ensures that it fits perfectly in your palm. The back of the smartphone also has a prism-like effect when it catches light from different angles. It adds that unique bit to the design but still isn't as eye-catching as some Honor phones in the same price range. Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy A70 is outfitted with a triple camera setup where the primary setup is a 32-mp sensor and has an aperture of f/1.7. The secondary camera is a wide-angle 8MP sensor whereas the third sensor is the 5MP depth sensor. At the front, it comes with a 32-MP selfie shooter which would appeal to people who love to take selfies on a daily basis. The camera UI is quite similar to what we've seen on other One UI Samsung smartphones. You can switch between the wide-angle and the normal sensor with a single tap. It also comes with a portrait mode where you can adjust the level of blur before and after taking a picture. We found the portrait mode to be a bit of hit and miss feature as the blur effect was not quite accurate to other smartphones. The wide-angle lens works as advertised and takes in more information thanks to a field of view of 123-degree. Macro shots are also good in good light conditions but don't manage to do a good job in low-lit environments. In terms of videos, the unique feature here is the phone's capability of taking super slow motion video at 1080p@30/240fps. It can also take 4K videos at 30 frames per second but it does not have support for OIS. This could be disadvantageous for people who like to capture videos on the move as your hands need to be very stable. Here are our camera samples for your reference: Performance In order to be one of the top mid-range smartphones, it needs to perform like one as well. It comes with Qualcomm's 675 octa-core chipset running at 2GHz (two Kyro 460 cores) whereas the other cores are clocked at 1.7 GHz. It comes with an Adreno 612 GPU which is perfect for smartphone gamers. In fact, during our testing, we did not notice any frame drops while playing PUBG and could even run it smoothly on high settings. The smartphone also didn't overheat as much we expected to keep it nice and cool for extended gaming sessions. The chipset has been coupled with 6GB of RAM and which is more than enough for daily tasks and usage. Having said that, the smartphone would glitch out on us each time we would reboot the smartphone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In terms of benchmark scores, the Galaxy A70 scored a respectable 2374 in the single-core test and a 6573 in the multi-core test. The smartphone in general performed as expected apart from a few hangups here and there. Overall, the performance was up to the mark and didn't cause major app crashes. Battery Life The 4,500 mAh battery is another marquee feature on the Galaxy A70 that makes it one the longest last smartphones of 2019. We used the device for watching shows on our private Plex server and even on Netflix. We gamed and used it for daily navigation on Google Maps. We got an average of 6 hours screen on time and overall the smartphone lasted 13.5 hours on a single charge. When you do drain your battery, the A70 comes with a 25W fast charger which can charge the smartphone from 7 to 100 per cent in a little over 2 hours. The Final Say The Galaxy A70 is an all-rounder smartphone that delivers almost everything you expect from a mid-range smartphone. It performs well and takes good pictures which are the primary reason for buying a smartphone. Having said that, the known issues can be ironed out with a future update such as better portrait mode and the unexpected lagging. The battery life and display quality is a perfect combination for people who love to watch videos on their smartphones. If you are looking to spend less than Rs 30,000; the Galaxy A70 is a strong contender.
  21. Celebrities and Instagram fitness influencers are guilty of selling a lot of shit to you that you do not really need. Every other day, you will find them endorsing a new product or a supplement that promises to magically build muscle, make you lose fat or enhance your performance. One such product that has gained wide popularity is the 'high-altitude' training mask. It's a questionable-looking mask that you may have seen on hipsters in your gym, mostly while running like bunnies on the treadmill, or worse during lifting weights. These masks claim to improve your aerobic capacity by increasing Vo2 max output during exercise. How does it do that? By making lesser oxygen available forcing your body to give greater output. © Getty Images A study was done and published in the International Journal of Sports Sciences where they took two test groups and made them perform HIIT workout. One of the groups wore the mask and another did not wear the mask. At the end of the study, all the subjects had an improved Vo2 max but the improvements between the two groups were not that different. The study concluded that HIIT as a training pattern is efficient in increasing Vo2 max, the mask is simply useless. The notion of lesser oxygen available making your body give greater output is similar to saying that the lesser fuel you put in the tank of your car, the higher the mileage would be. And the argument that it gives your body a low-oxygen performance capability, the fundamentals behind the thought in itself is misled. This is because at higher altitudes the oxygen in the air itself is lesser. This by default makes your body adapt to the specific demands. When you wear an altitude mask, the oxygen in the air does not change. It just reduces the amount of oxygen that you can take it by putting a blocker between the air and your respiratory system. © Training Mask While doing low-intensity work, you can still easily get away with it but doing HIIT or hardcore training or lifting in the gym, this can have fatal consequences as well. A person can become unconscious due to lesser air being received during exercise and can injure himself. The training mask could even make you perform in a poor way due to interference with your breathing. Add heavy lifting to this insanity, which some people surprisingly do, you are cooking a recipe for disaster. If you really want to build higher endurance or say get better at utilizing oxygen, do two things: 1. Train for aerobic performance and adaptations. 2. Practice more breathing techniques that help you hold more air in your system when exercising. Want to get high altitude training adaptations? Go train at higher altitudes aka in the mountains. These high-altitude masks do nothing and may potentially harm you if you use it in the gym. Oh, the one advantage it has is that it will make a cool Instagram picture and make you look like Bane or Darth Vader inside the gym.

  22. The wait is finally over, the movie is out, and yes it was incredible, better than anyone and everyone's expectations as well. I'm guessing only a few people have watched it till now and we're still avoiding giving out spoilers for a few hours because, as the Russo Brothers said, Thanos still demands our silence. But, for people who have watched it, they obviously can't stop themselves from talking about it. So, here's a loophole - spoilers without context, so nothing is actually getting spoiled. There's a bonus as well - they're all truly hilarious. Spoilers without context are perfectly balanced, as all things should be, since people who haven't watched won't have the movie spoiled for real, and everyone who's watched it can have a laugh. So, here's my pick of a few spoilers without context because it's the best way to talk about the movie without actually talking about the movie. 1.

  23. It's only been a few weeks since Nvidia launched its GTX 1660 GPU based on the Turing architecture. And now, the company has just launched a new GPU called the GTX 1650, which carries a price tag of Rs 12,999 in India. The new GTX 1650, in case you don't know, is the third 16-series desktop GPU from the company. With a Rs 12,999 price tag, the GTX 1650 is a perfect entry-level GPU for casual or gamers on a budget. © Nvidia As for the specs, the GeForce GTX 1650 comes with 4GB DDR5 VRAM. It features 896 CUDA cores, a boost clock of 1665MHz, and a total memory bandwidth of 128Gbps. The TDP rating on this particular card is just 75Watts, and it won't need a connector from the PSU as it draws the requisite power straight from the PCI slot. Now, let's talk performance. According to Nvidia, the GTX 1650 will offer twice as much performance compared to something like, say, the GTX 950. So, if you are someone who's using an older GPU from two or three years ago, then this would be a good GPU to look into. Apparently, you can also switch from a GTX 1050 and expect a performance boost. © EVGA As mentioned earlier, the GTX 1650 GPU will go on sale immediately from a bunch of online and offline retailers for Rs. 12,999. However, you may have to shell out a bit more cash depending on what OEMs decide to make. In addition to the GTX 1650 desktop GPU, Nvidia also announced the GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1650 for laptops. You can expect to start seeing the laptops powered by these GPUs in the coming months with a starting price of $800. © Nvidia As for the performance of the 1060 Ti powered laptops, Nvidia says you'll be able to play all modern titles like 'Overwatch', 'PUBG', 'Apex Legends' and 'Fortnite' with frames upwards of 100fps. If you don't mind playing the aforementioned titles at 60fps, then you can also pick up the laptops powered by the GTX 1650. OEMs including Dell, Acer, ASUS Alienware, HP, MSI, etc. will start putting out laptops powered by these GPUs soon. Acer Nitro 5, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G, Dell G5, Gigabyte AERO 15, Lenovo Legion Y7000, etc. are a few of the laptops which you can start seeing in the coming months, according to Nvidia.
  24. After teasing his fans for months, the official teaser of Arjun Kapoor's 'India's Most Wanted' is finally out and looks like we'll see Arjun in a never-seen-before avatar. The teaser begins with a voice-over and partial glimpses of a man who is nameless and faceless. He is the mastermind behind 52 bomb blasts, which killed as many as 433 people and left 810 injured and shook the nation from its core. Fox Star Studios In a bone-chilling voice, the man says "A soul never dies, only the body dies. I am not killing people, just sending them into another body. I am not saying this, this was said by Shri Krishna in the sacred Gita." The nameless man is then referred to as India's Osama, the most dreaded terrorist. Fox Star Studios Arjun Kapoor appears in the later part of the video as Prabhaat, an intelligence officer who is willing to catch the nameless and faceless terrorist, but without any guns or support. Jut like the description of the video says, "A manhunt with no guns, no glory, only guts." Since, Arjun Kapoor and his team of unsung heroes are not going to use any guns, we wonder if they will catch him by shouting 'Thain Thain'. While Arjun Kapoor appeared in the second half of the teaser, we are more intrigued to know more about the guy playing the antagonist. We'll get to know it once the movie releases on 24th May. Inspired by true events, 'India's Most Wanted' is directed by Raj Kumar Gupta.
