  1. Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, better known as The Mountain from the hit HBO franchise, 'Game of Thrones', is a big man. Weighing in at 195 kg, Björnsson, has not only made us skip a beat with his massive structure in the show, but is also making headlines all over, as the strongest man in the world. That is not an exaggeration. In 2018,'Thor' Björnsson went on to win the Arnold's Classic, followed by Europe's Strongest Match. He capped the year by winning the most prestigious competition of them all, 'The World's Strongest Man', as he became the first person to win all the three highly reputed competitions in a single year, according to his website. While The Mountain set a world record in deadlifting last year when he did a WR Elephant Bar Deadlift (471.69 kg/1039.9 lbs), he decided to outdo himself by an extra five pounds at the 2019 Arnold's Classic, as he shattered his own world record, which now sits at an impressive 474 kg/1044.9lbs mark which is nearly two and a half times his body weight! View this post on Instagram Pretty casual new WR Elephant Bar Deadlift 474kg/1044.9lbs Very happy with day 1 here at The Arnold Strongman Classic even though 501 will have to wait for another day. Looking forward to day 2. I appreciate all the support guys, thank you! @roguefitness @nuunhydration @sbdapparel @legionath @stanefferding @theverticaldiet @australianstrengthcoach @stefansolvi @andrireyr @kelc33 @dianahrund @bjornthorr @ragnheidurmj @valthecoach A post shared by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (@thorbjornsson) on Mar 1, 2019 at 3:30pm PST "Pretty casual new WR Elephant Bar Deadlift 474kg/1044.9lbs," writes the monster of a man, Björnsson in an Instagram post after registering the record. "Very happy with day 1 here at The Arnold Strongman Classic even though 501 will have to wait for another day. Looking forward to day 2. I appreciate all the support guys, thank you!" Yes, you guessed it. Around the same time next year (or even sooner), Björnsson might try to deadlift weights worth half a ton! Just to put things into perspective, that's how much an elephant weighs in his teenage days. In another Instagram upload after the win, Björnsson thanked his sponsors, best friends and nutritional coach for their constant support during his exceptional journey. He did not forget to thank his wife Kelsey Henson, who he considers to be the lucky charm for him. View this post on Instagram Arnold Strongman Classic Champion 2019 - Huge thanks to my wife @kelc33 and my best friends @stefansolvi and @andrireyr for all the incredible help that I cannot thank you enough for! Also massive thanks to the rest of my family and friends!!! ï¸ - Thanks to the best coach in the world @australianstrengthcoach , the best nutrition coach in the world @stanefferding - Massive thanks to all my sponsors for sticking behind my back and believing in me @roguefitness @sbdapparel @nuunhydration @legionath A post shared by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (@thorbjornsson) on Mar 2, 2019 at 8:43pm PST "Crazy fact... since Kelsey and I have been together I haven't lost a competition, I've just been on a winning STREAK!!!" When he is not out in the real world proving himself to indeed being the strongest man alive, you can watch his zombified version brutalising the commoners on 'Game of Thrones'.
  2. In one of the worst terror attacks ever, India lost over 40 bravehearts on February 14 2019, when a JeM suicide bomber rammed his car, laden with over 350kgs of explosives into a bus carrying CRPF jawans, in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. © AP The whole nation mourned the loss and wept for the martyred jawans, but also proved to be a ray of hope for the families in this dark time. From raising funds, donating their salaries to cancelling their wedding reception to donate money; people are doing everything possible to show that they stand strong with the jawans' families. © instagram Another such moving gesture came from this Meerut groom, who paid his respect to a Pulwama martyr in an emotional and heartbreaking way. The groom, while heading to his wedding, stopped his baraat midway and got down from his horse, to salute the funeral procession of martyr Ajay Kumar. The picture was shared by Harsh Goenka, Chairman of the RPG Group, who posted the picture on social media which has since gone viral. He wrote, "Meerut's bridegroom dismounts his horse and the baraat stops to salute the funeral procession of Martyr Ajay Kumar. We too salute our martyrs. We will not let their sacrifice go waste."

  3. Apple announced the new iPhone last week and the XS and XS Max go up on sale from tomorrow, September 21. The new iPhone XS starts at US$ 999, while the XS Max starts at US$ 1,099, and despite this heavy price tag, people are queuing up a day in advance to get their hands on the new Apple product. According to the Strait Times, insanely long lines have already formed outside 270 Orchard Road, Singapore. Apple has been expecting a high demand for its new product and hence, has already set up barricades and a queuing system outside their stores. Each person can buy up two phones and are given a wristband which lets them leave the queue for 30 minutes. In the last few years, a new trend has started of people lining up to buy these phones at market rates, and then immediately resell it ahead at a higher rate. The demand from the rich, including celebrities and businessmen, is unprecedented, and obviously, they don't want to queue up. © Wikipedia Commons People even fly down to Singapore from India, Vietnam and other neighbouring countries, so that they can buy the phone at the international rate and bring it back. This way, under the presumption of personal usage, import duty can be avoided. The iPhone XS starts at INR 99,900, leaving behind a fair amount of margin for profit. The queue for the new iPhone in Singapore. But it'll only be released tomorrowat 9am.#iPhone #iPhoneXSMax #Singapore #iPhoneXS #iPhoneXR #shazikfacts pic.twitter.com/Br7p6yncPO — SZ (@shafiq_zikri) September 20, 2018 A 44-member Vietnamese group called Dat Cay Da had flown to Singapore to specially buy the phones. A few members told the Strait Times that this is their yearly activity now. Obviously, the crowd also consists of hardcore Apple fans who want the bragging rights of having the new iPhone first. Used to queue up for the latest iPhone but haven't since the 6. Mostly because: pic.twitter.com/EC21PvioSy — Richard Moynihan (@richjm) September 13, 2018 On a lighter note, Deliveroo, an app-based food delivery business has said it'll deliver food to those who are waiting in the line outside the Apple Stores. The hype is real, and last year's iPhone X sales data proves that a higher price of the phone has no effect on sales whatsoever. © Reuters In fact, the iPhone X has received splendid reviews as well as sales numbers. The number of people waiting in line has often been a point of comparison among companies and helps in estimating the demand. Source: Strait Times
  4. Google is a household name around the globe, everyone knows it, and uses it. The company is a lot more than just a search engine, everyone uses Android, Gmail, YouTube, and many more apps, all belonging to Google. In a similar way, Amazon too has expanded rapidly and made in-roads to many new markets. Unlike Google, Amazon is dependent on both online as well as offline business operations. While Google is the world's largest advertising company, Amazon is valued at almost US$ 1 trillion, right next to Apple. Now considering the Indian market, the two companies have made it large here locally. © Reuters Since its entry in the country in 2013, Amazon has quickly expanded its operations and holds 30 per cent e-commerce market share. The company has long surpassed the homegrown Flipkart, completely knocked out Snapdeal, and all other smaller players are either being acquired or going bust. Google being an Internet company does not depend on offline operations, but has managed to focus on the market by making practical products like Google Pay, Files Go, RailWire, and on a wider spectrum the Android Go platform. Advertising revenue from the country is booming, Google Cloud is expanding its data centres, and even the Pixel and Android One phones are selling like hot cakes. © IndianExpress Now, let's have a look at another American company that has been in the country for more than a decade and is currently the most valued in the world, Apple. Even Apple holds an enormous amount of brand recognition in India, but where are the sales? For years the behemoth has said it's serious about India and wants to play a bigger role, but year after year we see no change. In fact, Apple's market share is down to just 1 per cent in Q2 2018, according to Counterpoint Research. We can argue that India is a developing country and the majority of the sales are from the budget and midrange segments, but there is still a much bigger premium market than just 1 per cent. This becomes even more evident when we see OnePlus and Samsung selling their top-tier devices in huge quantities. © Samsung Now, the argument shifts. How can we compare a OnePlus or Samsung flagship with Apple? Globally, yes we can. But, not in India. The price difference is too big. To put this in perspective, the Note 9 costs Rs 67,900 while the iPhone Xs starts at INR 99,900. The two are supposed to be around the same price segment, but Apple has created a new bubble for itself, the ultra-premium segment. And this is where the problem lies. Apple's constant ignorance of the market. They say they care, but their actions say a different story. It's easy to blame India's 20 per cent import duty for the price difference, but after all these years, every company has found a solution, Make in India. Everyone does it, so does Apple, but only the iPhone SE and iPhone 6. I really doubt they'll make the flagships anytime soon, while on the other hand Samsung has a huge facility in Noida and is churning out phones that also get exported. © Twitter/Narendra Modi Google is being smarter as well, they don't have the scale to produce locally, but to stay relevant and rational, they take a hit on the pocket in terms of premium. That's what you'd expect a giant to do, especially in the beginning. Also, the Pixel is just one of many Google products, not the primary revenue source. Why is Apple not able to simply throw around money in India and expand rapidly? Because it always has run-ins with the government. Apple wants to directly operate stores in the country, meaning direct selling, not being dependent on the resellers. But the country's law says it needs to produce 30 per cent of its products in the country before it received approval to open retail stores. © 9to5Mac The company was stuck in a year-long disagreement with TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) over their reluctance to support the watchdog's do-not-disturb (DND) app. Apple had refused to carry TRAI's DND app on its App Store, saying it accesses a user's calls and message logs, which is against its privacy policy. According to an August report, the two have finally come to an agreement with the rollout of iOS 12. If these weren't enough, the company has also put Apple Pay on hold because the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) has made data localisation compulsory for companies to set up a payment service in India. While this is a minor setback and even Amazon is affected, Apple is facing multiple issues on multiple fronts. Quite honestly, Apple has the capability to breach the market and establish itself rapidly just like Amazon and Google. But, the company already faces too many hurdles.
  5. In August, Apple passed the US$ 1 trillion mark in terms of stock market value. And today, after just thirty-three days, Amazon has accomplished the same feat. Amazon's shares rose as much as 1.9 per cent, sprinting past the milestone. Jeff Bezos started Amazon in 1994 as a book-selling platform and since then, the company has transformed itself into an e-commerce mammoth that literally sells everything in multiple markets. The company's success has made Bezos the wealthiest person on this planet with a net worth of almost US$ 150 billion. © Reuters Amazon currently has more than 5,75,000 employees and rakes in more than US$ 200 billion in annual sales. When compared to other huge companies, the e-commerce company is fairly young and has managed to successfully diversify its business. Bezos launched a new cloud-computing business division in 2006 called Amazon Web Services (AWS), the business has been an astounding success and further proved how long-term the vision is. Having its own computing infrastructure also gave Amazon a lot of room to experiment with its own services. In the recent years, the company has gotten into the streaming business as well and bundled the same with its Prime membership offering. © YouTube While the stock market-based valuation is very dynamic and at the end of the trading day, the company's valuation slipped to $988.8 billion, it is still a remarkable statement of how quickly the 24-year-old company has grown. The constant rise in share prices also means investors are confident about its prospects Apple and Amazon aren't the first companies to join the trillion-dollar club though, as energy company PetroChina Co. briefly crossed that valuation in late 2007 but slipped back due to reducing oil prices and the oncoming 2008 financial crisis. © BCCL Technology stocks have been on a constant rise this year though, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Netflix have been seen a consistent rise in their share price and analysts are bullish about them paying off in the longer run. Morgan Stanley has recently raised its target price for Amazon's share to US$ 2,500, valuing the company at US$ 1.2 trillion. The stock closed at US$ 2,039 on September 4. Source: Bloomberg
