  3. Thereâs no love like a motherâs love. She will go to any length to ensure her child is safe, even if that means travelling 2,700 km across 6 states. This mother here in Kerala, just did that. People who are with their families during the lockdown are safe, but there are some who are having a really difficult time staying away from their loved ones. That too, things start getting worse for them if someone in the family is ailing. In a recent incident, a BSF Jawan's mother traveled 2,700 km across six states, over three days to meet her critically ill son in Jodhpur despite the lockdown restrictions in the country in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Indian Woman Travels 2700 Km Across 6 States To Meet Her Son Latest Breaking News | Celebrity News and Gossip | The India News Today - https://t.co/872Jc7r5o3 â The India News Today (@tindianewstoday) April 17, 2020 According to reports, her 29-year-old son, Arun Kumar is suffering from myositis (inflammation of muscles). Sheelamma Vasan, the 50-year-old woman started her journey from Kerala on 11th April and traveled through Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Gujarat to reach Rajasthan. She reached her destination on 14th April and was accompanied by her daughter-in-law and another relative of hers. Our BSF Jawans work day in and day out and guard the borders to ensure we all sleep peacefully at our homes. And the credit for their strong will and determination, even during tough times, can also be given to their rock-solid families, that stand behind them and give them a strong foundation. © representational Reuters Vasan, in an interview with PTI said, she didn't face any problems on the journey, all thanks to Union Minister V Muraleedharan, office of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Congress leader, Oommen Chandy who took interest in the matter to get all the necessary passes for her travel across the states. Bsides, a cab was also arranged by the authorities for the safe journey. She further said in her interview, she was informed about her son's ailing condition by a doctor at AIIMS in Jodhpur and that's when she decided to undertake the journey from Kerala to reach Rajasthan. According to the update, thankfully, her son's condition has now improved, although the BSF Jawan is still under observation. We pray for his speedy recovery! View the full article
  4. Weâve been speculating about the OnePlus 8 Series for a while now and it seems like many of those speculations have been confirmed by the company. On the OnePlus forum, company CEO Pete Lau confirmed some of the specifications of the upcoming phones in a deep dive. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We had already assumed that the OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8 would be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chipset and it was confirmed in the forum post by Lau. This is the same chipset that powers some of the flagship phones of 2020 including the Realme X50 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S20 in the United States. Xiaomi was also supposed to launch the Mi 10 in India that is powered by the flagship chipset, but was delayed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The Snapdragon 865 chipset already offers impressive performance on other phones and OnePlus claims it will be 25% more energy-efficient than previous handsets. The processor is also more powerful at handling raw processing power which makes it ideal for gaming, video and image editing. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Lau also confirms that the phone will have LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 flash storage which will enable the phone to have faster read and write speeds. This, in turn, will enable the phone to launch apps and files faster than ever before. For users who like to use processor-intensive apps and multi-task at the same time, the new flash storage system will help in making the process smooth and power-efficient. The OnePlus 8 Series is already sounding like a great phone with almost every specification leaked before its official launch. While the smartphone is launching soon, currently we do not know how OnePlus plans to get their smartphones in the hands of their customers during the lockdown period. View the full article
  5. Division claims power sector is on an upward trajectory but NEPRA is skeptical of the claim
  6. When it comes to power banks, you need to get the right one that fits your needs and doesnât take enough time to charge your gadgets. Weâve seen power banks that offer some form of fast-charging but normally come at premium prices. Some offer fast-charging equivalent to QC 2.0 and some can go up to offering 18W Power Delivery fast charging for smartphones and other gadgets. Xiaomiâs subbrand Redmi has launched both but for now, we will be talking about the Redmi 10,000 mAh model. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The power bank offers more or less the same charging speed as a QC 2.0 wall charger i.e. it can fast charge your smartphone for 10W. If you are looking for faster charging speeds, Redmi offers a 20,000 mAh variant that supports 18W PD charging. It kind of makes sense that Redmi opted to not support PD fast charging on the 10,000 mAh model, as it would reduce the capacity of the power bank to 7,200 mAh when using 18W fast charging and the kind of connection you have with a particular gadget. Most power banks list their capacity (milliamp hours or mAh) as a sum of the lithium-ion cells inside. This is based on their nominal voltage: 3.6-3.7V. But that does not show how much energy a gadget would actually get out of the power bank. For that, we have to find âactual capacity.â For example, a 10000mAh power bank that has to boost to 5V for fast charging will result in 10000mAh * 3.7V / 5V = 7200mAh USB capacity. In order to avoid a lower capacity on the power bank, Redmi did a smart thing by not supported PD charging on this particular model. It ensures that you have enough juice left on the power bank to charge your smartphone more times by using a lower voltage. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The power bank has 2 x USB Type-A Output (5.1V-2.4A / 5.1V-2.6A), USB Type-C / Micro-USB Input (5V-2.1A). Having two input ports ensures that you can charge the power bank with both Micro-USB and Type-C port, however, we recommend using the Type-C port if you want the power bank to get charged quickly. The Redmi 10,000 mAh power bank also supports pass-through charging, which means you can charge your device and the power bank at the same time. It also comes with protection from overcurrent, over-power, short circuit, and two-way fast charging. The power bank also supports low power mode charging for devices like smart bands, LED lights and USB Fans. You can simply tap the power button twice to enter this mode. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to the design, the power bank has a dimension of 150.5 x 73.6 x 15.1mm making it easy to slip into any backpack or back pocket. It isnât as slim as Realmeâs power bank but it isnât too big for people to use on a daily basis on the go. Having said that, there are skins available online for the power bank and we opted to use a skin that imitated leather. There are various other options like wood, camp and other designs to make your power bank look more unique than everything else out there. When it comes to charging smartphones, the 10,000 mAh model can charge the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi K20 (4,000 mAh) almost two times. Both these smartphones have massive battery capacity and its impressive to see it charge the smartphone almost twice given the output connections you get from the ports. You can expect the smartphones to charge at 10W however if you require faster-charging speeds, we recommend you get the 20,000 mAh model. The Redmi 10,000 mAh power bank costs only Rs 799 which is far less than the competition out there. It offers more value for money thanks to all the features and protective precautions that you may not find on other power banks. It has multiple input ports giving you the freedom to use a USB-C or micro USB charger to juice up the power bank. View the full article
  7. Kangana Ranaut willing to consider relationships due to this power coupleKangana Ranaut recently admitted, candidly, that there is a power couple that made her be open to considering a relationship for herself. During a conversation with the Deccan Chronicle, Kangana revealed that, despite her reservations regarding marriage, she is willing to consider the idea of meeting her own special someone after seeing a prime example of love and marriage. The person who showcased exemplary love, in her eyes, was none other than director Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s husband Nitesh Tiwari. The paper quoted Kangana as stating, “Undeniably, I have always felt it is difficult to find someone who will be on the same level. However, after having met Nitesh Tiwari (husband of Panga director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari), and noticing them so amicable and loving in their marriage, my opinion on marriage has changed. He supports his wife so wholeheartedly. Marriage seems possible to me now.” Speaking regarding her preferred choice in a marriage partner, she told the paper, “He should be someone more intelligent, beautiful (handsome), and more talented than me.”
  8. Geo.tv/Files ISLAMABAD: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA) on Tuesday approved a Rs.4.90-a-unit price hike in electricity, translating into an annual burden worth Rs 106 billion on the K-Electric's (KE) consumers. The decision was based on the KE's quarterly applications. The power regulatory authority also approved to fix the average per-unit price of electricity at Rs17.69. The NEPRA's decision would be applicable after the federal government's approval. On December 28, the authority had told the KE to collect a consumer tariff — over the next nine months — on account of variation in the fuel charges from July 2016 to June 2019. However, it has directed Karachi's sole power supplier to collect the tariff from consumers of all categories, except those consuming less than 50 units a month. Separately, the NEPRA on December 10 slapped a Rs50-million fine on the KE over the loss of 19 lives to electrocution in the metropolis "due to lack of earthing of LT/HT poles and leakage of current from the distribution facilities of KE". The regulatory body had said the electricity provider failed to fulfil "its statutory obligation to maintain safety standards".
  9. If you are someone who already owns a Nintendo Switch and always plays on the go, you may want to buy a power bank for the console. Sure you can get any power bank that can get the job done but not all power banks charge the Nintendo Switch at the same rate and sometimes different users have different needs. The right power bank depends on what kind of gaming you do, how long are your travel plans and your budget. When buying a power bank for any specific need, you need to look at charging speeds, capacity and other benefits you may have not considered before. Certain games drain more power than other casual games and when other variables such as Wi-Fi and max screen brightness are being used, some power banks will not charge the Nintendo Switch while playing. When all of these conditions are in place, the Nintendo Switch has a maximum energy draw of ~8.75-8.9W. You will need a power bank that can surpass that draw level while charging. So to make things easier, weâve handpicked some of the best power banks you can buy for the Nintendo Switch in India: 1. Anker PowerCore Speed 20,000 PD (20,000mAh) Anker is one of the best accessory manufacturing companies from the US that offers quality power banks, brick chargers and other accessories for your devices. This power bank can deliver full power delivery support at 22.5W and is even capable of charging the MacBook Pro. The Anker PowerCore Speed 20,000 PD's output via the type-c port are 5V=3A, 9V=2.6A, 15V=1.6A which is more than enough for your Nintendo Switch charging needs. This power bank is perfect if you are travelling for long periods and it can charge the console while playing any heavy-duty game. It can charge the Nintendo Switch in 3.5 hours while playing or 2.5-3 hours when in sleep mode. 2. Stuffcool Type C 18W Power Delivery Power Bank (10,000 mAh) If you are on a budget and donât necessarily want a big capacity power bank, you can always consider the Stuffcool Type C 18W Power Delivery Power Bank (10,000 mAh). It is compatible with QC3.0 and also offers 18W power delivery charging speeds from its type-c port. It is sturdy and small enough to fit in your pocket during your travels. It has an output power of 5V/3Amp, 9V/2Amp & 12V/1.5Amp and can charge the Nintendo Switch in 4 hours while playing or 3 hours when in sleep mode. 3. Realme Power bank (10,000 mAh) The Realme Power bank is great for charging smartphones, but it also great for charging the Nintendo Switch, thanks to its 18W PD charging support. It supports Apple 2.4A, DCP, QC 2.0, QC 3.0, AFC, FCP, as well as USB PD 3.0 charging protocols. From the Type-A port, the charging outputs include 5V/3A, 9V/2A, 12V/1.5A (Max) when using a single port. It can charge the Nintendo Switch in 4 hours while playing or 3 hours when in sleep mode. 4. Ambrane Stylo 10F 10000 mAh This power bank is by far the cheapest weâve found that offers PD fast charging speeds for the Nintendo Switch. The Type-c port has an output at 5V/3A which means it can charge the Nintendo Switch in 3-3.5 hours (sleeping) and 4+ hours (playing). It isnât the fastest way to charge the Nintendo Switch but it is certainly the cheapest way to get it done. It comes with a capacitive button which can get damaged if you donât take care of the power bank. What about other power banks One thing you may have noticed that weâve only included power banks with a type-c port that support PD charging. Thatâs because it is by far the best solution as not all power banks are made the same and do not have the same output levels. This doesnât mean other power banks with a USB-A port cannot charge the Nintendo Switch. These power banks need to have an output of 5V/1.5A in order to charge the Nintendo Switch. However, you can only charge the Switch in sleeping mode and it will take 4+ hours to get fully charged. You will need a USB-A to USB-C cable in order to use the power bank. There is a chance that you can charge the Switch while playing using the USB-A port however it will only work for certain gaming conditions. Plugging it in while the Switch is at 100% gives the best result as it can extend the Switchâs battery life by 4.5 hours when using a 10,000 mAh power bank. View the full article

  13. One of them is the most impactful cricketer on the planet right now, and the other one is a stalwart in her own right, making some of the most impactful and commercially successful movies that we have seen this decade. © Instagram/virat.kohli Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are the definitive Power Couple that we have in India as of now. Not only do they set some major relationship goals for us (ask your girlfriend and you'll get a clue what we are on about), from time to time, they also set some really cool and doable style goals that should be on your shared bucket lists. Desi Outfits With A Modern Twist © Instagram/virat.kohli On its own, Virat's asymmetrical kurta is one hell of a piece that warrants a lot of praise. However, with Anushka in the simplistic but elegant sari next to him, the outfit takes on a whole new meaning. This just goes on to show that desi outfits, with liberal and contemporary touches, is bound to work, always. Striding In Stripes © Instagram/anushkasharma It seems that Virat & Anushka had meticulously planned this outfit. The combination of each element works really well. This is actually a nice way of striking a chord with your partner, without those cringy 'his and hers' t-shirts and sweatshirts that people normally go for. Once again, the individuality of these outfits isn't lost, and yet, they seem to complement each other really well. Moral of the story? One of the two should wear something with a little colour if the other one is planning to keep things all plain and simple. The Perfect Outfit For The Perfect Evening © Instagram/virat.kohli There's a lot going on here that ideally shouldn't work, but at the end of the day, they actually do. First, even though it's a cocktail dress, things with too much glitter can be an eyesore. Plus, Virat's outfit doesn't really work well, considering that its a monochrome ensemble, barring the jacket. It probably has to do something with the fit, it just does not sit well. However, when we consider the ensembles as a pair, things fall perfectly into place. The glitter and shine of the cocktail dress sit in perfect harmony with the simple, and apparently “insipid”, outfit. They work really well in tandem. Yin & Yang © Instagram/anushkasharma This sort of continues on the previous theme, albeit with some minor differences. Virat in his all-white ensemble actually looks quite good. Anushka, on the other hand, seems to one-up him, with the playful set of ghagra-choli. Plus, the fact that the playfulness carries over to the tone of the photograph, actually makes this quite Insta-worthy. Even other than these four, there have been a number of occasions when the power couple coordinated their outfits for the maximum impact. Like this one, when they went shopping for their pet dog. © Instagram/anushkasharma Or, for instance, this one. © Instagram/anushkasharma We finally get the appeal of couples making joint Instagram accounts. Not that we are saying you should too. View the full article

  15. Before you remind me, I know that we are already halfway through 2019. But that doesn't mean you can't give your wardrobe a little upgrade mid-year to make an impression. The dreadful summer doesn't seem to end and now, more than ever, is the perfect time to bring out to the smart casuals and formals to put together the power look for the year.

All you need to know are the essentials of pulling off a power look on a holiday. The keywords that'll guide your dressing style on a trip are – casual jackets, shorts and casual shirts. Sounds simple enough doesn't it? You can go for a simple tee with shorts and team it up with a bright casual jacket to complete the look. Try and add in some funky prints too. There's nothing like a holiday to experiment with bright summer colours. Conversations & More At Tea Raymond One thing that most Indians have in common is our love for a good cup of tea. Whether we are pitching a business idea, unwinding with friends or spending a romantic evening with a loved one, it all happens over tea. And to dress for the setting, you need to embrace more of pastel shades and go subtle with your style. Pair your crisp white shirts with light-weight casual pastel jackets and you are ready to go.

  16. Communities are bound by a code of conduct that govern user behavior. Sometimes these rules are explicitly written, such as terms, guidelines, or my personal favorite: “Must Read Before Posting Or Banned!!!” topics. (That’s a joke. Please don’t ever write a topic like that!) Sometimes the rules are unwritten, based on evolving behaviors and user-to-user interaction. No matter the method of conduct or scale of communication, all communities contain these community guideposts that govern user behavior. Being able to influence, and being influenced by, these rules of conduct is our second element of Sense of Community. Community Managers. The original influencers. The privilege to persuade is a powerful feeling. It fills users with a sense of control, knowing that they can impact others. It gives purpose to users, who will tap into their inner helpfulness by assisting others. And it imparts a sense of satisfaction, which is one of the highest transcendent values a user can feel. It also leads to a better community. Over time, the mutual interaction between members builds trust, forming a community of authenticity where users can expect repeatable and expected behaviors. It also leads to good governance, where members embrace the codes of conduct by the group, inculcate the code into their own behaviors, and repeat the code to newer members – reinforcing the very codes they learned themselves. Members conform to community rules and standards, sacrificing a little bit of their own individuality but gaining acceptance by the community. Clearly, influence and persuasion is a powerful element. Let’s take a look at some ways in which you can build a better community by unlocking the power of influence. 1. Show New Members How to Influence If your community is anything like mine, you have a welcome topic or message: Do this, read, that, follow this. It’s usually filled with stuff to influence the member. But have you thought about giving the new member an opportunity to influence? And not just in a superficial manner like posting an Introduction topic, but one that’s filled with meaning and purpose. In addition to linking to the best guides and expert content in your community, ask your users to help other members, answer challenging topics, or identify any skills that can help others. 2. Influence through explanations Have you seen communities where the moderators take heavy-handed actions and do things without prior notice? Or they assume you know everything? It feels rude, unwelcoming, and very cliquish. On the other hand, I’ve also seen communities where the moderators and community managers take the time to explain every response. When you take the time to explain the response, you share your reasoning with others. That’s influence. Over time, users will turn around to repeat the reasoning to others, which builds good governance. (It also means less work for you!). Communities are built on transparency and trust, and the more you can openly establish your community norms, the more clearly other users can repeat and reinforce your governance. 3. Be influenced by asking for help One of the most powerful and uplifting things you can do is to ask your members for genuine help. Be candid. Be vulnerable. Explain the challenge. And ask for help. You will find members who will rise to the occasion. Humans are naturally compassionate. We will always help others if we can and communities are one of the best platforms to ask and receive help. If you ever make a mistake, take on a big project, or if you’re ever in over your head, don’t be afraid to ask for help and allow others to influence you. 4. Influence as a privilege One of the stellar reasons for choosing Invision Community are the multiple ways to publish content. You can offer user albums, polls, blogs, articles, discussions, files, clubs, the list goes on. This allows you to offer increasing channels of influence for your superusers. Unfortunately, most communities throw all the choices at a new user, hoping one will stick. That’s like asking a new member who steps into a room of strangers if he wants a microphone, a loudspeaker, and a spotlight! That can be scary. Influence is something to be gained over time, in small bits of comfort and trust. 5. Appreciate the influence. One of the most inspiring actions you can do as a community manager is to acknowledge and appreciate the influence of others. When you do, you affirm the influence of others. It's one of the simplest things you can do too. Pick three random post by members on your site and reply: “I appreciate this contribution because …”. You’ll be surprised by how well members respond to your note of appreciation. CONCLUSION The best influencers are the members who care about the needs and wants of other members. The power to influence is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your members. By allowing them to influence other members, the codes of conduct, and even the direction of your community, they feel a deeper sense of community because they can make an impact on others. The most influential members in a community are surprisingly not the ones who post the most or who act the most dominant. The best influencers are the members who care about the needs and wants of other members. Share in the comments below one of your success stories on how you influenced – or were influenced by – another member. As always, I appreciate your contribution to join me in helping Invision Communities of all sizes build more rewarding and successful communities.
  17. John Abraham's second innings as an on-screen spy is just about to begin with his upcoming spy thriller 'Romeo Akbar Walter' ready to hit the theatres this Friday. However, unlike last time in 'Madras Cafe', John will be seen in eight different looks in 'RAW'. Now since that seems like quite a task to pull off in a single film, all with prosthetics, heavy makeup and costumes in place, the makers of the film did not leave any stone unturned to do justice to the character's many requirements. © Viacom 18 Consequently, the makers of the film brought National Award-winning makeup and prosthetic designer Preetisheel Singh onboard to work his magic on John and create his looks in 'RAW'. Recently, John took to his Instagram to share the journey of his transformation with his fans. The video shows John getting ready for one of the most difficult looks in the film, that of a bushy old man. View this post on Instagram I would like to thank my team who made this happen! Watch my transformation to a SPY for #RAW here: (Link in bio) Romeo. Akbar. Walter, based on true events, in cinemas this FRIDAY. @imouniroy @apnabhidu @sikandarkher @RomeoAkbarWalter @viacom18motionpictures @kytaproductions @vafilmcompany @redice_films #AjitAndhare @vanessabwalia @ajay_kapoor_ #DheerajWadhwan @timesmusichub @gaana.official A post shared by John Abraham (@thejohnabraham) on Apr 1, 2019 at 4:58am PDT The transformation is indeed praise-worthy because there is no way one can identify that old man to be John Abraham without context. Preetisheel has done a commendable job on John with this one. 'RAW' is set against the backdrop of the Indo-Pak war of 1971, and traces the journey of a bank employee trained as an Indian spy. He is sent to Pakistan to gather intel for the Indian forces, when the two countries are on the verge of war. The trailer of 'RAW' created quite a buzz with its intense and riveting cinematography. Also starring Jackie Shroff as a RAW Chief, Sikander Kher as John's nemesis, Mouni Roy as the female lead, there are a lot of intriguing aspects which will come unravelled in 'RAW - Romeo, Akbar, Walter'. The film is set to hit the theatres on 5th April, 2019.

  19. Netflix India Is lately expanding, with a lot of interesting regional content coming up for the audience. One such Marathi movie called '15th August' has already created a lot of buzz for its feel-good vibe and content. The trailer just came out and we have to say it's a breath of fresh air. This 'slice-of-life' movie is based on the residents of the Gandhi 'chawl' in Mumbai where they are forced to come together on Independence Day due to certain situations that get them together. One story has a couple dealing with the dilemma of the guy and his commitment issue, the other parallel story is about a young boy's hand being stuck in a hole in the ground. All the mayhem and mess get the residents to get together and help each other. While doing so, they face some innocent questions about their own lives and face their own truths. © Netflix The movie is produced by actress Madhuri Dixit and her husband, Dr. Sriram Nene. You can stream it on Netflix from 29th March.

  21. Every once in a while, we see the union of some of the most influential people of their respective fields. Power couples like Beyonce and Jay Z, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, Barack and Michelle Obama are obviously atop the list. But what about those couples that are exclusive to sports? 1. Dinesh Karthik & Dipika Pallikal View this post on Instagram Missing my lady @dipikapallikal A post shared by Dinesh Karthik (@dk00019) on Jul 28, 2018 at 7:10am PDT One of the most successful wicketkeepers for the Indian cricket team, Dinesh Karthik is well on his way to getting selected for India's 2019 World Cup roster. Barring the last T20I match against New Zealand, Karthik is one of the more dependable batsmen for India. His wife, Dipika Pallikal is the most successful squash player in the country to play professionally. With her highest world rankings at 10 (2012), Pallikal even won the gold in the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. 2. Triple H & Stephanie McMahon View this post on Instagram âªThat moment when going out for groceries turns into an upcoming episode of @CarpoolKaraoke with @StephanieMcMahon. Btw, I sound much better when I lip sync… A post shared by Paul "Triple H" Levesque (@tripleh) on May 31, 2018 at 1:14pm PDT Spearheading the most famous wrestling show in the world, this power couple may be the strongest married duo (and we mean that literally) of all time. While wrestler Triple H is one of the best in-ring performers of the business, the involvement of his wife Stephanie McMahon, in some of the most epic storylines during WWE's 'Attitude Era' was absolutely entertaining and worth watching time and time again. 3. Saina Nehwal & Parupalli Kashyap View this post on Instagram Photo shoot ð¸ð¸... #magazine ðð¸ A post shared by SAINA NEHWAL (@nehwalsaina) on Feb 7, 2019 at 8:01am PST The newest power couple on the block, shuttlers Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap have found new form ever since they tied the knot last year. Much senior in experience when it comes to competitive badminton, Saina Nehwal can often be seen coaching Kashyap during games. However, she has also publicly announced that her husband has brought in a lot of changes in her game that have led to some great advancements in her performance. 4. Mitchell Starc & Alyssa Healy View this post on Instagram Picture 1. Mitch and I trying to do our best model poses while my feet were still fresh in my heels..... ð- Picture 2. Dreams do come true.....Thanks everybody! A post shared by Alyssa Healy (@a_healy) on Feb 11, 2019 at 11:00pm PST Australian cricketer, Mitchell Starc is probably the scariest pacers Down Under. Winning the 2017 Allan Border Medal in the best Test bowler category for his performance against Sri Lanka in 2016, Starc is also a decent batsman who is only 14th Aussie to take 100+ wickets and score 1000+ runs in Test cricket. His wife and also an Aussie cricketer, Alyssa Healy on the other hand, just capped a brilliant year as she won the prestigious Belinda Clark Award while also being named ODI and T20 player of the year during the Australia's Women's Awards.
  22. We attach a significant amount of personally identifiable data to our social media profiles daily. I regularly use social media to share photos of my kids and holidays. I post my personal thoughts on products I've used and TV shows I've watched. I'm even tagged in location-based check-ins. It's all there in my news feed for anyone to see. I'm not alone. More and more of us live our lives through the prism of social media. We share things we love, things we loathe and things that make us laugh. With just a few clicks, you can discover a lot of information about a person. More often than not, you can see where they work, where they live and what school they went to. Scrolling through their timeline often reveals their stance on hot topics such as gun control, the current President and other recent headline news items. This information follows you when you join a Facebook Group. Your past Tweets are always available to trawl through. Indeed, there may be some groups that you decide you cannot post in as people would be able to identify you. This is particularly true for stigmatised conditions, such as financial help, illness and mental health. After all, if you were seeking help with a large amount of debt or managing an embarrassing medical condition, you wouldn't feel comfortable knowing that work colleagues, friends and family could read your posts. The benefit of anonymity for stigmatised topics "Forums can all offer some initial anonymity, a community, and information that geographically proximate others may not have. What stigma-related forums uniquely offer is that the anonymity protects those who are not ready to be publicly associated with sensitive topics; the community helps to neutralise the “spoilage” of identity that accompanies stigma." (1) Unlike social media where reams of personal data is willingly added, and which can identify you to other online users, forums allow you to add as much information as you are comfortable with. Support communities for mental health and illness flourish using forums for this reason. An individual may feel devalued in society and unwilling to share their condition over social media. "Nowadays people can both avoid and proactively cope with this devaluation by turning to online forums populated by others who share the same devalued group membership." (1) Forums offer a safe space for these individuals to seek and receive support from others without disclosing large amounts of identifiable data. Allowing a level of anonymity encourages more people to register and over time, they will develop ties with other users. For an individual with a stigmatized condition, a forum may be a real life-line in coping with the condition as face-to-face support is often limited. Adrial Dale, who owns Herpes Opportunity agrees. "In order for us to truly be able to work through the shame that stigma can trigger, it's absolutely vital for us to feel safe to open up and tell all. Through opening up, we not only get to share with an understanding and compassionate community (which normalizes our shared experiences), but we're also able to begin to release what has felt like our own solitary burden to bear. Then a magical thing can happen ... an alchemical process that transforms shame into an opportunity for connection. An opportunity for us to be accepted for who we are *behind* the thick wall of shame. And ultimately, an opportunity to accept ourselves. Especially in these days of the internet not feeling so private (even in places where it absolutely should be), having true privacy and anonymity is paramount for communities like Herpes Opportunity. Anything other than that is grounds for paranoia and holding back from sharing ourselves. (In fact, just the other day someone messaged me asking "Are private messages really private?") Fear can lead to closing ourselves off, which can lead to isolation and paranoia, which can lead to a downward spiral of self-loathing and depression. On the other hand, safety, connection and compassion creates an an okayness with the nitty-grittiness of what it means to be human." The benefit of expressing a new identity "People may strategically express identities when they think they will not be punished, and/or connect them to an audience that is valued." (1) It is arguably true that not so many years ago, tech-related communities were very much male-dominated, with female contributions valued less. Forums allow a way to create a new identity that is either gender-neutral thus allowing the male users to assume a gender, or overtly male to ensure their contributions are evaluated on merit, and not with any gender bias. Christopher Marks who owns Nano-Reef has seen this first hand. "During a discussion with a women’s group in our generally male dominant hobby, a number of women had expressed the benefit of having an anonymous username and profile when asking for help and advice on forums, they receive equal help without the unfortunate gender bias or belittling that can sometimes happen in real life when seeking the same help in person." Invision Community's Jennifer has also experience of this on her own community; RPG Initiative. "RPG Initiative is a community for all roleplayers. We focus on all text-based roleplaying forms that are hosted on the internet. We encourage roleplayers to find each other, discuss roleplay and grow as collaborative writers here at the Initiative in a safe environment." Jennifer relies on, and encourages anonymity. She knows that because her site is predominately female, some female users identify as male to increase the chances of getting others to collaborate with them. "Male players are rare, in fact, I recently ran a poll on my site and of those that responded to it less than 15% of them are male (or identify as such). So this gets them more attention and in turn, more people that want to write with them." Jennifer explains how anonymity is critical to her site's growth. "Anonymity is a difficult thing to accomplish in a small niche like mine, but it's sort of like a small town where everyone knows everyone, and they likely know all of your secrets. So enforcing rules to preserve anonymity is really important to my community and me. This includes prohibiting the "naming of names" or the "site" that the drama is coming from when seeking for advice or help. This doesn't negate that people may know the existing situation or people involved because they are also involved or know some of the people involved, but it helps cut down on the drama and the spread of negativity and false information about people." With a forum community, you can truly be who you want to be. This is not so with social media where others can create bias based on your gender, looks or topical preferences. Together, together "In her early work, Turkle argued that the internet provided myriad positive opportunities for self-transformation, but more recently, she argues that the explosion in social media options has led us to develop superficial, emotionally lazy but instantly available virtual relationships." (1) It's hard to argue against this statement when you consider the content that predominates social media. And often an endless stream of self-focused content. "Indeed, we provide clear evidence that online forums afford users a way of being genuinely “together, together”, as opposed to what Turkle calls “alone together.”(1) The bottom line is that it has been proven that allowing a degree on anonymity increases engagement across all niches, but especially those that are built to support those with stigmatised conditions. These forums have a greater sense of community and depth than those built on social media. When you allow your members to take back control of their privacy, you are empowering them to make decisions about what to share. Given how eroded our privacy is in our modern always-connected world, this is a precious gift. If you are looking to create a new community then consider this before choosing your community platform.
