  1. After the impressive success of Pati Patni Aur Woh, Kartik Aaryan is busy promoting his soon-to-be releasing film, Love Aaj Kal these days. This involves regular public appearances in carefully thought-out snazzy outfits along with his co-actor Sara Ali Khan. For the Umang Awards 2020, Kartik Aaryan chose to wear a regular pair of jeans and a t-shirt with a beige shirt but what made the outfit stellar was the pair of shoes that he was wearing.

  2. What can you possibly do in 40 seconds? Watch snippets and trailers of your favourite TV series or movies on YouTube. Save 35 seconds by skipping an ad after 5 seconds. Make coffee or cocktail or anything. © Reuters Honestly, whatever your answer is, it clearly doesn't matter anymore; because it can come nowhere close to what Conor McGregor did in 40 seconds. On Saturday night, Conor McGregor came back with a bang and knocked out Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone in the first-round TKO in the welterweight main event at UFC 246 held in Las Vegas. Just in case you missed it, here's Conor McGregor with his 'shoulder-in-chief' going all out against Cowboy Cerrone who clearly did not take McGregor or his shoulder too seriously. HE. IS. BACK. @TheNotoriousMMA CLOSES THE SHOW EARLY! WOW! #UFC246 pic.twitter.com/0B0NXbi6pY — UFC (@ufc) January 19, 2020 If you think what happened with Cowboy inside the ring is brutal, wait till you hear what happened to Dan Bilzerian. It's worse than getting hit by McGregor's shoulder. While McGregor may have earned millions by winning the first round, Dan Bilzerian on the other hand lost approximately a million in those 40 seconds, because he placed a bet against McGregor. Before the match, Bilzerian proudly posted a picture with his 'pocket change' on social media and wrote "Putting some pocket change on @Cowboycerrone who y'all got?" Puttin some pocket change on @Cowboycerrone who y'all got? pic.twitter.com/xHsjTIeSkl — Dan Bilzerian (@DanBilzerian) January 19, 2020 He even posted videos on his Instagram stories of the huge pile of cash stacked up in line, with him asking Cowboy to take no pressure. Now, we don't know how much cash does Bilzerian mean by 'some pocket change', but the eagle-eyed people on social media were quick to do their maths and according to their estimate, it's close to $1million. Wow, now that's a brutal episode of 'How To Lose Your Money In 40 Seconds'. We wonder on whom the pressure is now. Anyone want to check on Dan Bilzerian? He lost all of this in 40 seconds tonight pic.twitter.com/5w7Sik0QGS — Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) January 19, 2020 Okay the total for the money is: 6 layers, $2000 each set. Approx 20 sets down the line. times 4 rows. Plus adding the extra random stacks with the two random 5k stacks and 10k stack totals to be $1,024,000. — Sweaney (@Sweanison) January 19, 2020 Me trying to figure out what he put on it pic.twitter.com/POeBqVEfwk — moose (@Brandnjones) January 19, 2020 You think he ACTUALLY put the $1m on Cerrone?

McGregor fans and MMA fans are also pissed that they spent $65 on a fight that didn't even last a minute and are venting out their frustration in the most hilarious way possible.

  3. Producers Barbara Broccoli (L) and Michael G. Wilson pose for photographers on the red carpet at the world premiere of the new James Bond 007 film "Spectre" LONDON: The next James Bond will not be a woman, the movies’ producer said in an interview, as speculation mounts about who could replace Daniel Craig as the legendary 007. Craig, 51, is due to step down after the latest Bond film, “No Time to Die,” which will be released in April. Rumours abound over who could replace him and whether the next Bond will be female but Barbara Broccoli told Variety it would definitely be a man. “He can be of any colour, but he is male,” said Broccoli, a producer of the film alongside Michael G. Wilson. The Bond franchise is one of the movie world’s most lucrative, with 2015’s “Spectre” raking in $880 million at the box office worldwide, while “Skyfall” in 2012 grossed more than $1 billion globally. Broccoli said she believed in creating strong female characters, but added: “I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.”
  4. Imagine you are getting married to the love of your life and on your wedding day, you find out that she cheated on you with your best friend. Or that your husband ran away with your girl friend. While even the mere thought of it will pain a lot, nothing can come even remotely close to the pain that imam from Uganda is going through. Two weeks into his marriage, this imam found out that his wife was actually a...man. Honestly, we don't even know whether it counts as cheating or not, but it's outright bizarre that it took him two weeks to figure that out. We have so many questions right now, but more than that we feel so bad for this guy who not only lost a wife but also got suspended from his duties for absolutely no fault of his. © Twitter 27-year-old Sheikh Mohammed Mutumba, who was a cleric at the Kyampisi Masjid Noor mosque, got married to a woman called Swabullah Nabukeera in a traditional Islamic ceremony, in December. All was going well, until two weeks later his wife was caught stealing their neighbour's TV and clothes. When the cops were called and a female officer started searching her, that's when he got caught and the guy confessed that his real name is Richard Tumushabe. Reportedly, he married the imam to steal his money. Now I am sure you're wondering how did the imam never find out about his wife's 'obvious' secret? Well, according to him, he and his wife never had any sexual relationship because his wife said she was menstruating. What's more, his wife also "refused to undress while they slept". The guy even fooled the imam's friends and relatives since she usually wore a hijab, and "had a sweet soft voice and walked like a woman". Poor Mutumba never realised he got married to a man, he is now traumatised and needs counselling and he also got suspended till the matter is getting investigated. The world truly is unfair.

  5. Farhan Akhtar is currently prepping for his film Toofan which is set to release on October 2, 2020. This is probably the reason why you see him in his bulky yet ripped avatar these days. But once in a while, he takes a break from shooting. © Viral Bhayani This is when he spends time with his family. Recently, when he had stepped out with his family and his girlfriend, Shibani Dandekar for dinner, he wore a rather interesting outfit. Firstly, this was a casual dinner so no one was particularly dressed up amongst the lot. However, Farhan Akhtar was seen in pants that were not only quirky but at the same time, relatively more functional than any other pair of pants that we've seen in a while. Take a look here: © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The interesting element of his pants is the pockets. The pair have extremely long pockets, so much so that a tonne of things can fit in them. Pockets with that kind of space aren't designed anymore, it's luxury to have pockets at all these days in pants. And here we have Farhan Akhar with pockets the size of a bum bag. We wouldn't be surprised if he isn't carrying a bag at all. In fact, the pockets are enough to fit-in both Farhan and Shibani's personal knick-knacks together. In fact, they're big enough to hold an iPad and a phone, among other things without filling up the pocket. But seeing the incredible amount of space that these pants hold, we just hope that we're also lucky enough to find a pair of pants with pockets this size for ourselves. View the full article
  6. Federica Brignone. Photo: AFPALTENlMARKT, Austria: Italian specialist Federica Brignone clung on in the slalom run to win the World Cup combined event in Austria on Sunday having romped the Super-G run that took out a third of the field. In overcast conditions on a tight, challenging first run American superstar Mikaela Shiffrin, her key rival Petra Vhlova and 14 other competitors failed to complete the treacherous first run. Shiffrin pulled out of the ultra-fast and fog-blighted downhill on the same daunting Kälberloch slope on Saturday, making Sunday´s Super-G her first ever run in Altenmarkt. This was Brignone´s third combined win on the World Cup circuit and it firms up a good run of form that has lifted her to second in the overall World Cup standings. "That last part of the course is really difficult because you just can´t allow yourself to go too fast due to how technical it is, this was a tactical win," said Brignone on 565pts, 52 ahead of Vlhova but 261 behind the American. Swiss double combined world champion Wendy Holdener almost did enough to catch the Italian reducing her half second deficit from the first run to 0.15sec on the second. Hodener is fourth in the overall standings.
  7. Selena Gomez goes makeup-free as she puts album 'RARE' out in the universeSelena Gomez's fans are going crazy after the singer dropped her much-awaited album RARE today (Friday). Sharing the big news with her fans on Instagram, Selena posted a picture of herself, holding the album. “HERE IT IS!!! My album is officially out in the universe.. thank you for the souls that worked on this with me. Now it’s yours. Hope you like it. #Rare,” she wrote. In the post, the Lose You to Love Me songstress can be seen biting on the edge of her album cover. She can be seen dressed in a blingy, halter neck top, with a black blazer over it. The diva, went makeup-free yet again, and opted for a dash of highlighter all over her face, to exude brightness. Earlier, Selena was in the news for being eclipsed by ex Justin Bieber, who chose to release his album around the same time as hers.
  8. Blink and you might miss it - as Youtube and digital media continues to dominate public consciousness, yet another record was shattered this Thursday, when megagroup BTS's rapper, Suga released a new music video - a mid-album interlude titled Shadow. Not only did the video smash past the group's previously held record by 3 minutes - it now proved that content on the internet could amass a staggering 1 million likes in barely half an hour. With supportive comments pouring in from all over the world in various languages, the 'Korean/Hallyu Wave' is perhaps the greatest revolution in music since the early 2010s. With the music video tackling serious themes such as the dark side of fame and fortune, it also serves as a reflection of the highs and lows of the industry that created it. Here's why K-Pop's become the international phenomenon it is today. Old Town Seoul Despite the flashy, hyper-produced quality associated with K-Pop today, the origins of westernised Korean pop music were surprisingly humble. Back in 1885, an American missionary by the name of Henry Appenzeller started performing and teaching American and British folk songs at schools in the Korean capital, Seoul. These songs became widely popular and were performed with Korean lyrics, retaining their original English tunes - a form of music called changga. © principlesofknowledge; Court musicians performing for the Joseon dynasty, late 1800s. During the postwar era of the 1940s, Korea experienced a similar cultural revolution as Japan - huge influxes of American soldiers brought about a revolution in music and filmmaking, with demand increasing for rock musicians to perform in bars for the troops. Several young musicians from both countries saw the option as well-paying and interesting work, a rarity in Korea after their civil conflict in the 50s. This led to the rise of several live-music bars in Seoul - nearly 300 venues hosted live bands that performed Beatles covers and their own compositions. © Korea Times; Add4, a band formed in 1962 that revolutionised the landscape of Korean music. Soon, Korean cinema followed suit - propelling Korean media into widespread fame across the east as the country's economy bloomed. Groups such as the Kim Sisters, shown below, reached popularity in America as well - even hitting the #7 spot on Billboard. It was all a taste of things to come. The Modern Era K-Pop Machine Today, Korean pop music is characterised by huge entertainment conglomerates, and intensely trained stars that either work solo, or more commonly, form their own groups. These massive companies are dominated by what's known as the 'big three' - SM Entertainment, YG Entertianment and JYP Entertainment, all of which were founded in the mid-90s. The first and most obvious reason as to why K-Pop, and Korean culture, in general, has become a global hit, is the well-oiled machine that runs the entire show - the most important people aren't necessarily the artists themselves, but the people who manage, guide and often exploit them. © Washington Post; Dance lessons at Def Dance Skool, one of Seoul's most famous K-Pop academies. Out of all these students, barely a handful will become truly famous. Through intensely selective trials starting at the age of 10-12, music studios scout and recruit talented children, who are then enrolled at specialised schools that train them in dance, singing and even guide them in moderating a public persona to keep them PR ready. They're then groomed to focus on hours of rehearsals, public performances and group shows while simultaneously preparing for the trials and tribulations they may face as future pop-stars. Once a group (or the rare solo artist) has been trained to perfection, the studios chart out music releases, marketing plans and tours - and depending on how well they're received, watch the money rake in. In an almost uncanny level of planning and meticulousness, the group is then scheduled for a 'comeback', where a new album release, special TV spots and new visual themes are explored. According to the Wall Street Journal, SM Entertainment invests an average $3 million to train their idols. © Wikimedia; Kim Jong-Hyun of Shinee is one of the victims of K-Pop's pressures, had tragically committed suicide in 2017. His suicide note mentions a 'devouring depression' and his struggles with fame. While the industry is notorious for exploitative contracts, abusive business practices and perhaps an over-orchestrated sense of perfection, the results speak for themselves - and several artists accept the sacrifice of their personal lives and freedom as necessary for success. What Makes K-Pop, K-Pop? Taking a step back, we can finally focus on the fun part - the songs and music videos themselves. The most immediate and common characteristics are heavily stylised, catchy and universally appealing music, slick dance routines and a heavy emphasis on dramatic fashion choices as well as aesthetic visual backgrounds. Each of these is further divided to give each idol their own individual 'place in the team', forming a broader image that defines a K-Pop group. Lyrically, Korean lends itself well to the pop-rap synthesis that's become immensely popular in modern music. English also makes a common appearance - allowing fans across the world to sing along. According to a representative from the University of California, “contemporary Korean pop culture is built on transnational flows taking place across, beyond, and outside national and institutional boundaries.” Perhaps this explains how even the Arab world and India have become devoted fanbases despite major cultural differences. Some of this implies that K-Pop is entirely designed to present an easily-digestible, mass produced form of music, but on diving a bit deeper into the subculture, it's very likely that you'll find something unique and interesting, regardless of your tastes. Take the BTS music video of Mic Drop - it's a loud, proud club banger with a focus on attitude, sass and a haters gonna hate message. It contrasts completely with 2018's Self-Love Ballad, Epiphany - putting across a similar message but with completely different visuals and genres of music. Personally, what I feel has helped K-Pop and specifically BTS retain their throne is the ability to consistently maintain their high standards while subtly reinventing themselves. Suga's latest track casts aside the usual cliche of love songs and flaunting *** appeal with money. Instead, it's a direct addressal of the sky-high tensions a performer has to live with, directed straight at a fanbase that has grown accustomed to perfection from their idols. And if anything, further helps cement the legacy of K-Pop as we move into a new decade of innovation in global music. View the full article
  9. Say what you will, but some gym memberships are expensive, and I mean really expensive. Especially around this time of the year, when a plethora of people have resolved to shed those extra kilos and lose those couple of inches. © iStock And then, thereâs the entire laundry list of things you need to buy, to convince yourself that youâre indeed ready to work out. Working out, therefore, can become an expensive hobby. And then, there are our Bollywood celebrities and Indian paparazzi who have, somehow, managed to turn the lobby of most gyms in Mumbai and Delhi into a makeshift fashion ramp. And this constant need to look good and fashionable in front of the camera has given us some really insane moments. © Viral Bhayani Recently, Arjun Kapoor was seen at a gym that also happens to be a major pap-point thanks to the number of Bollywood celebrities that work out there. Now, you would imagine someone working out in the gym, covered in sweat and grime, would be wearing something basic and easy-going. Well, you would be wrong. © Viral Bhayani Although the joggers that Arjun is wearing is indeed easy going, it is anything but basic. Arjun is seen here in a pair of Black Cotton Joggers from Dolce & Gabbana, which, even though are from an older collection, retail for £395 or just shy of Rs 37,000. That being said, they are actually quite zany. © Dolce & Gabbana And equally zany is the mauve jacket from ACW or A-Cold-Wall, which has a rather unconventional and quirky patchy print work on the back. If youâre looking to buy the jacket, be prepared to shell out something along the lines of Rs 25,000 - Rs 27,000, depending on where youâre buying from. © Viral Bhayani © ACW We also love the understated manner in which the seemingly simplistic ensemble has been paired with an equally understated pair of black running shoes from Asics. The shoes do stand out thanks to their golden streaks and that sunny yellow sole. © Viral Bhayani Say what you will, but the ensemble is actually quite zany, in spite of being sombre and understated. Actually, a really well thought out aesthetic. As always, Arjun does extremely well when it comes to acing normcore. Hats off, man... View the full article
  10. Sonakshi Sinha speaks out in support of Deepika Padukone. Photo: Instagram Sonakshi Sinha became one of the few Bollywood celebrities to actively support Deepika Padukone after Twitter began a crusade against her, post her Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus visit. Sonakshi took to her Twitter to post in support for her colleague. She spoke regarding the visuals of bleeding students and questioned whether the boycotters were supporters of violence. She concluded by sending her praises towards Deepika. "No matter which political party you support,do u support violence?Don't visuals of bleeding students and teachers shake you up?We can't sit on the fence any longer.Kudos to @deepikapadukone for showing up,& all those who spoke for speaking up.This is not the time to stay quiet," she said. After partaking in the protest, Deepika spoke to Aaj Tak, revealing she was "very angry." The star was quoted saying, “What I wanted to say I said it two years ago when Padmaavat was released. What I am seeing today, it pains me. I hope it doesn’t become the new normal. That anyone can say anything and they can get away with it. I fear and I’m sad. This is not the foundation of our country.”
  11. You know what's the best movie to watch? The movie that everyone wants to boycott before it has even released, that too for unrelated reasons. We already knew Chhapaak was going to be one of the most important movies of the year just because of the highly crucial story it is based on. However, just a few days before its release, the movie is already surrounded by so many controversies with calls for boycott just because some people didn't like something Deepika Padukone did. Well, all I want to say after reading the first reactions to the movie is you all are going to miss out on a great movie with this boycott. There's nothing but praise for the movie with Deepika's strong performance as an acid attack survivor and it made it even better. Guess that about sums it up. Went for the premier of #Chapaak. It is a kick in the guts that we all need — Amit Tandon (@amitandon) January 8, 2020 Must watch, indeed. #Chhapaak gives strong message. Heart wrenching and emotional movie.

  12. Deepika Padukone's surprising presence at the protest by the JNU students caused a national uproar within minutes. And why not? A mainstream Bollywood superstar suddenly appearing at a protest over a very controversial issue was fodder enough for intense debates. As expected, she was showered with praise and admiration for taking such a 'bold' step, but at the same time, she was also attacked for 'promoting' her latest movie, Chhapaak. But another issue cropped up out of nowhere, where a lot of Twitter users started accusing the makers of 'changing the religion' of the attacker in the movie. By now, everyone is familiar with the story of Laxmi Aggarwal, an acid attack survivor. Her attacker's name was Nadeem Khan, however, the makers of Chhapaak were accused of changing his name to a Hindu one, Rajesh, basically bringing the religion of the culprit into the spotlight. Well, turns out, these allegations are completely false and baseless. We got to review the movie yesterday and the name of the attacker in the movie was originally supposed to be Nadeem and was later changed to Basheer Khan. Technically, people didn't even bother to check the facts before trending several hashtags like #NaeemKhan and #Rajesh to #NameItLikeBollywood on Twitter. Here are a few tweets on the same: Laxmi Agarwal faced a jihadi Acid attack in 2005 in New Delhi as she had refused to marry #NadeemKhan. Deepika Padukone's making money with movie #Chapaak on Laxmi hardly talks about Nadeem Khan. Instead they changed name to Rajesh.#boycottchhapaak#IndianSecularism — Suman Kaul Sharmað®ð³ HINDU #Official (@SumanSh58123278) January 8, 2020 His name was #NadeemKhan who threw acid on #LaxmiAgarwal 's face, but you changed the name only to dishonour #Hinduism, this is your secularism.@deepikapaukone #Boycott_Chhapaak pic.twitter.com/Ljzq5ZFx4J — Lokendra Nath (@NathLokendra56) January 9, 2020 Name of the guy who attacked Laxmi Aggarwal with acid was #nadeemkhan. But makers changed his name to "Rajesh" to suit their agenda This is how Machinery of anti Hindu Bollywood gang functions.

  14. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Well, in this weird yet funny scenario of seeking revenge, it was indeed served on the table in the form of a lavish dinner. A Reddit user shared his story of break up on the internet that has cracked up everyone on social media. He met his girlfriend while finishing his lifeguard certification course and everything was going fine until their mutual friend found out that the only reason this woman in question was involved with the guy was that he used to take her out for fancy meals. “I've really liked this girl for a while that I met at a lifeguard certification course, and I talked to her while I was there and we (I thought) ended up hitting it off. We exchanged numbers and social media and all that and we messaged for a few weeks before I asked her out to a movie, which she accepted,” he wrote. He added, “We'd been going on casual dates, nothing too serious and we weren't hanging out at my place or her place even though I'd hinted at the idea, for a few weeks before one of her friends (someone that was also at the lifeguarding course that I met and kept in contact with because he was cool) sends me this screenshot.” © Reddit Unfortunately hurt and deceived, the guy decided to take his girlfriend out on a date and make her pay the bill instead. “After seeing this, I asked her to go on a nice date with me to a hibachi grill restaurant. $20-$40 dollar plates and premium desserts are served here. I got the most expensive thing they had and so did she. We both got fancy ice cream and multiple refills on drinks,” he wrote. “I complimented her a lot and smiled consistently, before getting up to go to the bathroom and leaving. (I was also her ride). About 45 minutes after, I get furious texts from her saying that she had to have her mom come down and pay for it because she didn't have the money on her and that we were done. I know it's not a lot and it sucks because I thought she was actually into me but it felt pretty nice leaving her that way,” he revealed. Opinions on this was actually divided and everyone shared their take on this incident. © Reddit If there is any truth in this story, then we do feel bad for our bro out here. Hurting feelings to get some extra food is actually not a cool idea. Rest, the next time you date someone, make sure they aren't using you to buy them food! First world problems today are hilarious.

  15. Say what you will about our Bollywood stars, but they do know a thing or two about sneakers and wearing them with style. From Anand Ahuja wearing the wildest sneakers we've seen in 2019, to Maniesh Paul wearing a sneaker that legit looks like a pair of children's shoes that were spray painted, we've seen it all. © Instagram/anilskapoor So naturally, when a resident of the tinsel town wears a new pair that is zany and insanely flamboyant to look at, something that screams for attention, people notice. © Viral Bhayani Kunal Kemmu, it seems is a massive sneakerhead that people don't often talk about. Time and again he has been spotted wearing some really dapper and cool pairs. Saying that he knows his Air Jordan 11s from his 12s would be an understatement. © Instagram/khemster2 However, it was the most recent pair that he was spotted in, that puts him at par with some of the most revered hypebeasts we have in India. Kunal Kemmu was recently spotted in a pair of sneakers that look as if they have dropped straight out of Dragon Ball Z, the Japanese anime that all '90s kids grew up with. © Viral Bhayani The sneakers, thanks to the orange and yellow coloured panels almost seem to appear like a dragon breathing fire, with the orange laces, further enhancing their appeal. That, coupled with the fact that they have been coupled with a pair of orange socks, black pants, and basic yellow t-shirt, further accentuate their appeal. © Viral Bhayani The particular pair that Kunal is wearing is the Track.2 Sneakers from Balenciaga, the Spanish luxury fashion brand, that are quite popular among the Bollywood fraternity for their Triple S line of 'ugly' sneakers. The Track.2 are actually a masterpiece, considering how technical the sneakers actually are © Hypebeast The sneakers have very pronounced and exaggerated treading chunks on their soles, which further adds to the aggressive aesthetic that they aim for. What really sets the pair apart, is the fact that the sneakers are actually made of 172 smaller panels which are stuck together to make its sieve and multilayered silhouette. © Hypebeast The panels, all intertwine and interlock which helps Balenciaga to cut down on the weight of the sneaker, which makes it one heck of a piece for running and sports. However, considering the price of the sneakers, you might not want to do that. © Viral Bhayani These Track.2s from Balenciaga are a part of their Winter/Fall 2019 collection and is listed for $895. That's just shy of Rs 70,000. Add to that your regular customs and import tariffs, and you are looking at a figure just shy of Rs 1,00,000. © Viral Bhayani Say what you will, these are some awesome sneakers. Way to go Kunal, a rather cheeky way to kick the year off. Keep 'em coming! View the full article
  16. The much-awaited trailer of Himesh Reshammiya's Happy Hardy and Heer is finally out and we know who're the people really excited about this one - meme makers. The trailer begins with internet sensation Ranu Mondal singing Teri Meri Kahani which shows Happy (Himesh Reshammiya) and Heer (Sonia Mann) appearing to be madly in love, although the truth is Happy has actually been friend-zoned. Heer then ends up falling in love with Hardy, who's basically a sunglass-wearing stylish musician version of Himesh. Wow, so much in the name of true love! © Pooja Entertainment This 2-minute trailer features Himesh Reshammiya in a double role where one Himesh, wearing turbans, fights the stylish Himesh, because let's accept it; if there's anyone better than Himesh, it's Himesh himself. Both of them are fighting hard to win the girl's heart and literally NO ONE, throughout the trailer, is going to be curious or shocked about why they look like a carbon copy of each other. Maybe that's the mystery they'll solve in the movie? Honestly, we're now excited and waiting for honest reviews from memesters. Directed by Raka and produced by Deepshikha Deshmukh, Happy Hardy and Heer was earlier expected to release on January 3, but it will now hit the theatres on January 31. View the full article

  19. Chris Evans has revealed he had a giant poster of his crush on his room’s ceiling and it is none other than Sandra Bullock. We all have had passed through this time of having our room walls pasted and covered with pictures of our celebrity crushes and inspirations and Chris Evans too is just like us. The super-soldier from Avengers turning 39 this year revealed his celebrity crush in a latest interview and it is Bird Box actress Sandra Bullock. Chris revealed that he had a giant poster of the actress pasted on his room’s ceiling. “We visited New York and I bought a giant, giant, giant poster of Sandra Bullock. I put it on the ceiling of my bedroom. Not that Sandy’s not cool, but that’s a loser thing to do," he said. The actor also talked about his likelihood to have kids and his relationship with his dog, Dodger. Talking about his personal life, the Knives Out actor revealed that he surely wants to ‘have kids’ and settle down with a family. With referring to his dog, who he adopted in 2015, the actor remarked, “Dogs are just so good and so pure. A weird, little door unlocks inside of you, this new level of empathy … in a weird way, that type of empathy permeates so many aspects of your life. You know, I think it actually unlocks a little bit, as I imagine having children will, I really want kids too.”
  20. Patients wait to register for treatment at the opening of a medical marijuana clinic in Bangkok. Photo: AFPA medical clinic in Bangkok opened Monday offered free cannabis oil to hundreds of Thais seeking relief from cancer, insomnia and muscle pain as the government drives home the economic and health benefits of their gamble of marijuana. Thailand in 2018 became the first country in Southeast Asia to legalise medical marijuana, although many Thais have long used the herb in traditional medicine. The government is eager to harvest the multi-billion-dollar potential of weed, investing in tech to extract, distill and market cannabis oils. "Today marks the beginning," Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said at the launch of the Bangkok clinic. "We are fighting for the better health of Thai people and fighting for a better economy," he told AFP, standing next to a marijuana leaf mascot wearing a doctor's coat. Thailand hopes that legalising marijuana products for medical purposes will provide a boost to the economy. Photo: AFPHundreds of, mostly elderly, Thais waited to receive the 5-10 mg vials of oil for muscle aches, though some came bearing more serious ailments — like Natjuta, born with cerebral palsy and confined to a wheel chair. Her mother, Supatra Ulapatorn, said cannabis oil helps her daughter to sleep better and stay calmer. "She does not sleep well which causes me not to sleep either," said the 60-year-old. "She is more calm now, so I think it works." Anutin, a construction tycoon-turned-minister whose Bhumjaithai party rode a pro-marijuana platform in last year's elections to become a major player in parliament, has promised an economic bonanza to his rural constituents. Read more: Zambia becomes the first African nation to allow medicinal cannabis He added that the drug has been "de-stigmatised" in Thailand. "If we talk about cannabis extraction, I have a sense people view it as medication rather than it being a narcotic," he said. Still, a knot of rules govern who can grow marijuana plants and extract cannabis oil, and critics say legislation will limit opportunities for small farmers and likely benefit big agro-industrial firms. Medical research has shown that cannabis oil can help ease the pain of patients suffering from conditions such as multiple sclerosis and epilepsy, but the science is out on its impact on other serious diseases including different forms of cancers. Recreational use and trade of marijuana is still illegal and could land anyone caught with a joint with severe penalties of up to 10 years in prison.
  21. When Siddhant Chaturvedi said, "Jahaan humaare sapne poore hote hai, waha inke struggle shuru hote hai," literally everyone felt it, and that's why it's still going viral. For some context, recently he, along with a bunch of actors, appeared on a newcomers roundtable where Ananya Pandey kind of went on a rant in order to justify her privilege and nepotism and how she has struggled to make it into Bollywood. Part of her justification was saying how her dad has never been on Koffee With Karan or been a part of a Dharma movie, which was obviously an instant trigger to get trolled, of course. Ananya Pandey complaining about nepotism and Sidhant Chaturvedi ending her existence with one line look at her reaction lol pic.twitter.com/hX2R7Jc1F7 — Devdas (offline until annoucement) (@shahrukhdevdas) January 1, 2020 But, the best part was Siddhant Chaturvedi summing up star kids' privilege by saying, "The difference is jahaan humare sapne poore hote hain, wahi inka struggle shuru hota hai." This one line became an instant classic, for obvious reasons, and even though he wasn't directly being mean to her or anything, Ananya obviously continued getting trolled, and for something other than her Instagram captions for a change. Another thing to come out of this was a new meme, probably the first meme of the year for desi Twitter.

  22. Not everyone uses a smartphone as companies like Reliance Jio, Nokia and others have launched feature phones with 4G capabilities in the past. These phones are particularly popular amongst users who don't really know how to work smartphones or just prefer using feature phones. Having said that, digital payments took off with a great start in India with UPI payments being the most popular payment mode. © HMD-Global However, over half a billion users in India are not able to use digital payments simply because they use feature phones instead. In order to tackle this problem, the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) collaborated with CIIE.CO and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to kickstart a competition for anyone who can figure out digital payments on feature phones. © Youtube/Microsoft The competition can be taken up by individuals or by enterprises and the best solution will win a total amount of Rs 35 lakh or $50,000. The second place will get a prize money of $30,000 while a prize money of $20,000 is up for grabs for the third spot. The last date to file your application for the competition is January 12, 2020. © HMD-Global One can apply for the competition via an online process and CIIE.CO & NPCI will select the most viable and promising solutions. Shortlisted individuals or enterprises will then be granted access to NPCI's API to start building their solutions. As per the website, the selected candidates will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to CIIE.CO team during the contest. “CIIE.CO can also facilitate introductions to other investors on a case to case basis. Winners will be evaluated for further acceleration/investment support via the Bharat Inclusion Initiative,” it said. View the full article

REUTERS/Jessica Rinaldi/FilesWASHINGTON: Julian Castro, an Obama-era cabinet member and the only Hispanic candidate in the US presidential race, ended his 2020 White House bid Thursday after failing to boost his flagging poll numbers. "It's with profound gratitude to all of our supporters that I suspend my campaign for president today," Castro said on Twitter, adding that he would "keep fighting for an America where everyone counts." The 45-year-old former mayor of San Antonio, Texas had struggled to raise his profile in a crowded Democratic Party nomination field, rarely rising above two percent in polls.

  24. Australia's Big Bash League feels more like a fun day off work with everybody from the fans to the players and even the officials having a great time amidst a game of cricket. But on Sunday, umpire Greg Davidson took the 'fun' to the next level when he caused massive confusion on the field on an LBW appeal. During the match between Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers on the weekend, Afghanistan bowler Rashid Khan shouted for a call when his delivery hit batsman Beau Webster's pads in front of the stumps. Responding to Khan's appeal, Davidson slowly raised his finger, obviously to signal the final decision but he realised midway that there was a tiny inside edge and affirming Khan's call would be incorrect. So what does the umpire do with his finger raised halfway? Well, just like any other intelligent man, he puts that finger beneath his nose and starts rubbing it. ð Greg Davidson with a bit of an itchy schnoz at Marvel Stadium #nosegate #BBL09 pic.twitter.com/m3M772Atox — KFC Big Bash League (@BBL) December 29, 2019 Davidson did this while Rashid was already celebrating the wicket with his teammates and he suddenly shouts: “I did not give him out,” while imitating that he was just rubbing his nose as one does. Eventually Khan and the Strikers went on to win the match by 18 runs and it was the Afghan who was named the Player of the Match. During the most-game ceremony, the cricketer as asked about the incident and he said: “I had started my celebration as well, I was shocked that the umpire changed the decision.” While this looks like something that would not have taken place in the past, some seasoned fans of Indian cricket would remember one such incident taking place over two decades ago in 1997 to be exact. Indian batsman Ajay Jadeja's wicket got saved in the most unusual way possible when umpire Raman Sharma raised the finger to show him out but changed his decision midway and fixed his hat instead. That happened to be the last match Sharma officiated. ð² pic.twitter.com/vdXNynDDs9 — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) March 19, 2017 And even though the umpire did a good job switching it up at the last moment, he didn't fool anyone: A surprise for both batsman and bowler: Pleasant and annoying, all at once, and fun to witness. — Rohit (@newsbelly2) December 29, 2019 This is one of the funniest things I've seen in cricket!

  25. Injured - Andy Murray has been ruled out of the Australian OpenAndy Murray said he was "gutted" to be missing next month's Australian Open after being ruled out of the first Grand Slam of 2020 with a pelvic injury. The 32-year-old Scot suffered the injury playing for Britain in the Davis Cup last month and will also miss the inaugural ATP Cup team event across three Australian cities in early January. "I've worked so hard to get myself into a situation where I can play at the top level and I'm gutted I'm not going to be able to play in Australia in January," Murray said Saturday. "After the AO (Australian Open) this year, when I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to play again, I was excited about coming back to Australia and giving my best, and that makes this even more disappointing for me. "Unfortunately I've had a setback recently and as a precaution, need to work through that before I get back on court competing." Murray had hoped to make his return to Grand Slam action in Melbourne following a hip operation in January. But concerns over the fitness of the five-time losing Australian Open finalist were raised when he cancelled a scheduled block of training in Miami. As a result he won't be back at Melbourne Park, the scene of an emotional press conference this year where he suggested he might retire as a result of his hip injury. Despite being less than fully fit Murray played a gruelling five-set loss to Roberto Bautista Agut. A fortnight later the double Olympic gold medallist, twice a Wimbledon champion and the winner of the 2012 US Open singles, had hip resurfacing surgery and started his return to action at the Queen's Club grass-court event in London in June. October saw Murray win the European Open in Antwerp, a victory that suggested he could still contend for major honours. But the latest announcement means he will not play again until February at the earliest. "I know how excited Andy was about coming back to compete in Australia in January, and how disappointed he is not to make it for 2020," said Tennis Australia chief Craig Tiley, who praised his "determination and iron will". "Although we will miss him in January, we wish him all the very best for his recovery and look forward to seeing him back on court very soon." The Australian Open takes place from January 20-February 2 with the ATP Cup acting as the new men's lead-up tournament in Sydney, Perth and Brisbane for 10 days from January 3.
