  1. Continuing his fine run this season, Lewis Hamilton clinched the first-place finish at the Circuit de Catalunya in the Spanish Grand Prix on 12th May. The Brit finished ahead of his Mercedes teammate Valterri Bottas and Max Verstappen who finished second and third respectively. While the top spots at the podium once again eluded Ferrari, Mercedes extended their record-breaking run to five-successive one-two finishes this season. Attempting to take a sixth world championship and third in a row, Hamilton's form is ominously strong and his 76th career victory was a befitting testimony to that. If his brilliant showing on the race track had everyone singing his praise, Hamilton's touching gesture for his special fan further won over fans. © Reuters Ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix, Hamilton received a special video from Harry Shaw who has been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer. According to reports, the five-year-old boy was recently given just one week to live. The video shows Harry, wearing a Mercedes cap and lying next to a signed Hamilton picture in his London hospital bed, giving a message to the Brit driver: "Hello Lewis Hamilton. Good luck winning the race in Spain and thank you for all of the gifts. Lots of love from Harry and goodbye". View this post on Instagram Harry, you don't know how much this message means to me buddy. Thank you so much, you are my inspiration today Harry. I will try to make you proud. You are such a strong boy, I wish I was as strong as you, I wanted the world to see how strong you are and ask everyone to send their best wishes and prayers to you during this hard time. Sending you love Harry. God bless you. Your friend, Lewis #keepfighting #nevergiveup #wewinandwelosetogether A post shared by Lewis Hamilton (@lewishamilton) on May 12, 2019 at 2:59am PDT Sharing the kid's video on his Instagram handle, Hamilton said: "Harry, you don't know how much this message means to me buddy. Thank you so much, you are my inspiration today Harry. I will try to make you proud. You are such a strong boy, I wish I was as strong as you, I wanted the world to see how strong you are and ask everyone to send their best wishes and prayers to you during this hard time. Sending you love Harry. God bless you. Your friend, Lewis". And, Hamilton did make Shaw proud by winning the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday. Following his triumph, Hamilton also dedicated his victory to the youngster who inspired him to secure a podium finish. "I got a great message from this young kid called Harry and he just became my spirit angel," the Mercedes driver said after the race. © Reuters "When I woke up this morning, I was a bit lost and wondering how today was going to go. Then I saw that message and I was like, 'I see you, Harry, I've got you'. I was looking for inspiration and something to grab to, so I dedicate today's race to him. You try to go out there and do something for someone. It doesn't always turn out as well as it has but I hope he is watching. I will be sending him a message shortly after this, and we are going to try and do something special for him," he added. Well, Hamilton did reveal that he will try to do something special for Shaw, but no one would have possibly anticipated what was in store for the youngster. In a heartfelt gesture, Hamilton and Mercedes sent one of their Formula One (F1) cars to Shaw's home in Redhill. The lucky kid, cradled in his father James' arm, was then shown around Hamilton's F1 car by a Mercedes employee. .@LewisHamilton has brought the smile back to a boy fighting the final days of his young life. Hamilton dedicated his Grand Prix victory to Harry Shaw from Surrey. The Mercedes team hastily arranged for one of their cars to park outside Harry's home as @samholdertv reports pic.twitter.com/qdphRn3MP8 — ITV London (@itvlondon) May 13, 2019 Owing to his rare medical condition, Shaw was outdoors for the first time in three weeks. The youngster was also presented with Hamilton's winning trophy from the race in Barcelona and a pair of the world champion's racing gloves. Apart from that, there was also a personal video message of support recorded by Hamilton which was shown to Shaw. "I cannot describe how much it means to us all that Lewis won the race for Harry, and then dedicated it to Harry, too," his father James Shaw said. "At a tremendously difficult time in our lives, this has provided us with a big boost, and a big smile. Harry couldn't believe that Lewis Hamilton was talking about him, and had dedicated the race to him. He now thinks that Lewis is his absolute best friend, which, for a five-year-old boy, is amazing. Harry loves cars, and although he is frail, he was asking about the exhaust pipe," he added. © Twitter/@HarrysPledge5 Over the years, we've seen numerous sportspersons dominating their respective fields and earning laurels. But, far away from their titles, trophies and accolades, it's their conduct and demeanour away from sports - like the touching gesture of Hamilton for a young cancer-stricken boy - that truly makes a sportsperson great.
  2. The anticipation for the final squad to represent India at the upcoming ICC 2019 World Cup is finally over as MSK Prasad, the chief selector, and Amitabh Choudhury, the BCCI secretary announced the list of players on Monday. Scroll down for the full squad. There were no big surprises in the squad, but Dinesh Karthik was picked ahead of other competitors vying for the number four role. The Kolkata Knight Rider will also serve as a backup keeper, behind the former captain and World Cup-winning veteran MS Dhoni in the squad. As a result, the popular youngster Rishabh Pant missed out on a berth to the United Kingdom. Without surprise, Virat Kohli will be leading the team from the front. His prolific form in the One Day format of the game has brought laurels to the Indian team and he would be hoping to push Team India's charge for a third World Cup trophy after the triumphs of 1983 and 2011. The opening duo of Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma fill the top two places. Added to the squad as a backup opener is KL Rahul, who makes it to the team on the basis of brilliant performances in the domestic season and off late in the Indian Premier League also. Coming to the number four spot, which has been a matter of concern for the Men in Blue for many months, all-rounder Vijay Shankar has been chosen to do the honours. Ambati Rayudu missed out on a berth and so did Rishabh Pant, who was a popular choice ahead of Karthik. Another all-rounder, Hardik Pandya made it to the squad with a sparkling showcase of his talent in the ongoing IPL. With some impressive performances in the recent past and owing to the ability to bag wickets in the middle overs, Kedar Jadhav has also really worked hard to earn this spot. In the bowling department, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal make the perfect spin duo for the Men in Blue followed by the experienced Ravindra Jadeja. The fast bowling unit comprises frontman Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Umesh Yadav missed out and India also chose not to go with a left arm pacer in Khaleel Ahmed. Full squad: Virat Kohli (capt.), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami
  3. Making a name for himself during the Under-19 World Cup in 2014, the South African international cricketer, Kagiso Rabada has been one of the greatest wildcards in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Drafted by the Delhi Daredevils in 2017 for his impressive pace attack the kid has come a long way from warming benches during the peak season. After missing out on the entire 2018 year with a terrible back injury, the youngster is back to the field looking for blood. Having played all five matches with the newly named Delhi Capitals, the 23-year-old has taken the responsibility of becoming his franchise's best bowler. Delivering a total of 19.1 overs throughout the tournament, Rabada has given away a total of 154 runs with an economy of 8.03 and 22.00 average. While not one of the most economical bowlers in the league, his ability to take wickets (7) has provided him with the third spot in the race for the extremely desirable Purple Cap. Kagiso Rabada.....unbelievable stuff. Execution of high quality skill under extreme pressure. #DCvKKR #IPL — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) March 30, 2019 With still a couple of years in his hand to reach his prime, Rabada has only shown massive improvement in international cricket in the last year. His blazing fast bowling combined with the finesse of Trent Boult and Ishant Sharma makes for a great bowling lineup for Delhi.
  4. On Tuesday, around 11 AM, a time when most of us were either waking up or getting ready or stuck in traffic; PM Modi was busy writing a tweet that was about to shake the nation to its core, the moment he clicked the post button. He wrote this, "I would be addressing the nation at around 11:45 AM - 12.00 noon with an important message. Do watch the address on television, radio or social media." This tweet sent everyone into a frenzy and reminded them of the day when PM Modi suddenly announced Demonetisation. Panic amongst public rose to another level when PM Modi didn't turn up at 11:45 to make the announcement, and he was half an hour late. मà¥à¤°à¥ पà¥à¤¯à¤¾à¤°à¥ दà¥à¤¶à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤, à¤à¤ सवà¥à¤°à¥ लà¤à¤­à¤ 11.45 - 12.00 बà¤à¥ मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ महतà¥à¤µà¤ªà¥à¤°à¥à¤£ सà¤à¤¦à¥à¤¶ लà¥à¤à¤° à¤à¤ª à¤à¥ बà¥à¤ à¤à¤à¤à¤à¤¾à¥¤ I would be addressing the nation at around 11:45 AM - 12.00 noon with an important message. Do watch the address on television, radio or social media. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 If you're wondering why we're talking about it now. Well, that's because we were standing in a queue outside the ATM near our office. Don't lie, you too checked your wallet and your bank balance,right? Jokes apart, the announcement had nothing to do with Demonetisation, so your money is safe. In the journey of every nation there are moments that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is today. India has successfully tested the Anti-Satellite (ASAT) Missile. Congratulations to everyone on the success of #MissionShakti. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 PM Modi's special announcement was about 'Mission Shakti', an operation under which an Indian-made anti-satellite weapon called A-SAT shot down a live satellite on a low earth orbit. In fact, with this India has become the fourth country after Russia, the US and China to get this technology. An important message to the nation. Watch. https://t.co/0LEOATgOOQ — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 27, 2019 Well, this is indeed a remarkable achievement for the nation, but by this time, Twitter was not even bothered about it because they were busy ranting and cracking jokes on demonetisation and PM Modi. And in all honesty, these memes and jokes are so funny that they are actually better than PM Modi's speech.

  6. One of the major highlights and the TRP-driving factors of the latest season of 'Bigg Boss' was the constructed love story of Bhajan king Anup Jalota and his student Jasleen Matharu. They were introduced as a couple when they entered the house together and caused quite a stir. View this post on Instagram Jasleen and Anup during the nominations #anupjalotaji #jasleenmatharu #anupjalotaji #anupjasleen #anupjalotasongs #jasleen #jasleen #biggbosshindi #biggboss12 #contestant #nominated #nominations A post shared by BBseason12live (@biggboss12live) on Sep 25, 2018 at 3:36am PDT A lot of drama happened on the show, when Anup revealed that their relationship was made to suit the TRP for the show and in real life Jasleen was nothing more than his student. Many fans were heartbroken and even Jasleen was shown to be emotionally upset with this revelation. Post the show it was reported that all was well between them and they were amicable as teacher-student.

I have special and precious Valentine's Day memories. I used to go out of India to party and celebrate.” On his plans for Jasleen, he revealed that he had her best interest at heart and was in fact looking for a suitable boy for her. “She was always my student. All the love drama was to create a hype and nothing else. In fact, I am searching for a suitable match for her to get married. I always want to see her happy, so when she will find her soulmate to express her feelings and love then she will celebrate her Valentine's Day with that special person and not with me”.

Well as they say, 'All's well that ends well'.
  7. We all know that as soon as a movie releases, a pirated version of it is available online almost immediately. I'm not saying it's right, but it's inevitable. But to fight the piracy of their movie 'Uri', the makers had a brilliant idea - just make a different version of the movie and post it online because it'll be a brilliant lesson that people will never forget. The pirated version online features a normal movie scene transition into the actors talking to the person watching telling them to go to the theatres to see the movie. In the pirated version, Yami Gautam's character says, “Surgical strikes 0400 hours pe start hogi. Unki army ko pata bhi nahin chalega kikya hua.” Then, Vicky's character turns to the camera and says, “Theek usi tarah, jaise iss waqt hum aapke screen mein ghus gaye hain. Aur aapko pata bhi nahin chala.” How freaked out would you be if Vicky Kaushal started talking to you while you're watching his movie? Imagine downloading a 3-4 gb movie and then you're all settled in and ready to watch it, then Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam come on the screen to call you out! Ouch, that's gotta hurt. You'll have to live with the fact that you've just disappointed Vicky Kaushal. A movie about the surgical strike pulling off the greatest surgical strike on piracy, it really was meant to be. The pirated video has been going viral online as soon as people got to know about it. It's honestly is one of the greatest pranks ever and everyone is appreciating and praising it. This is something really amazing didn't expect this haha Really funny ðð — nandinidas (@dasnandini19) January 16, 2019 Everyone's making the same joke. Awesome Surgical Strike on Torrent wala Pirated copies. — Ajit Mishrað®ð³ (@Ajit_Mishra) January 16, 2019 The movie is still in theatres, just go watch it because downloading it online is not even an option anymore.
  8. We all grew up watching 'FRIENDS' and it never gets old. Every time you're in a dilemma about what to watch, or you just want to watch something while having dinner, or you simply need to zone out for some time, 'FRIENDS' is the answer. You can just start watching any random episode and it would never disappoint. Some of us have watched it so many times, that we can remember every single line from the show. But still, there are certain facts about the series which might still be unknown to you. Here are 10 interesting facts about the iconic show, that may come as a surprise to you: 1. Four Six © Warner Bros The main cast of 6 was initially meant to be of 4. In the early stages, Chandler & Phoebe were supposed to be just the supporting cast. Whatever the reason was to include these two in the main cast, we're glad it happened! 2. The Unfair Emmy Courteney Cox, aka Monica, was the only regular cast member who didn't get nominated for an Emmy. This was as bizarre as Joey-Rachel's relationship! 3. The 'Scientist Guy' Joey Hank Azaria, the guy who played the role of Phoebe's scientist boyfriend David, tried twice for the role of Joey. Thankfully, the casting team had a better taste and they chose Matt LeBlanc instead. 4. The Theme Song How many of you clap your hands along with the theme song? Initially, the theme song selected for the show was “Shiny Happy People” by REM. The show was named 'Friends Like Us' back then but eventually, it became F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and we got a new theme song with it. 5. The Gay Chandler Writers initially thought to make Chandler gay. In fact, when Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox read the script for the first time, they thought Chandler was gay. They even admitted thinking Chandler was gay on the show. 6. The Blunder Ellen DeGeneres turned down the role of Phoebe. Can you imagine? 7. Ross's Monkey © Warner Bros Marcel, the monkey, was actually played by two monkeys named Katie and Monkey. 8. Courteney Cox As Rachel? Producers offered Courteney the role of Rachel. But Courteney thought she was better suited for Monica, as she could easily relate to the character. 9. David Schwimmer, The Man! David Schwimmer was the first to be cast in the show. In fact, writers wrote the role of Ross keeping David in mind. Talk about popularity, eh? 10. Ross and Rachel WERE off the table The see-sawing romance of Ross & Rachel wasn't supposed to be the centre of the show. However, seeing their on-screen chemistry and the love of the audience for the couple, the show was developed in such a way, that their relationship was often under the spotlight. And that's how we got the iconic 'I got off the plane' dialogue! So, which one of these came as the biggest surprise for you? Was it Chandler originally being a gay character, or Courteney Cox being offered the role of Rachel? Let us know in the comment section.
  9. The day we've all been waiting for is here. Apple has launched the new iPhones that shall be the flag bearer of what mobile computers are capable of, for the next one year. Apple's iPhone has been the best selling product of 2017, and we see no end to this trend. In a special event, Apple not only unveiled the new iPhones but also gave us a deeper insight into iOS and Apple Watch. Coming back to the new iPhone, Apple has launched the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and the iPhone XS Max today. The new series will also mark Apple's 2 billionth iPhone since inception. With the new line-up, Apple is now making last year's X-design language a default, this includes the notch, edge-to-edge display, and Face ID. Not only do they look futuristic and elegant, but also get a huge bump in terms of performance thanks to the new A12 processor. Apple Let's take a deeper look at each one of them! The iPhone Xs and the Xs Max are the successors of the iPhone X, though there isn't any major change in its design. The iPhone Xs has a 5.8-inch display while the Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display. Both the panels are OLED and Apple says it has used the toughest glass available out there on a phone. Apple is calling the display "Super Retina" and refreshes at 120hz, the company has also emphasized on its capability of a wide colour gamut and DolbyVision HDR10. The two phones are now IP68 rated, meaning you can easily take them for a swim and shoot underwater videos. Apple The two phones are powered by Apple's new A12 Bionic chipset (the name has been carried forward from last year), it is made on a 7nm process, has a 6-core CPU, a 4-core GPU, and an 8-core NPU. The NPU (Neural Processing Unit) is responsible for quick data processing of Face ID facial recognition and the company says its technology is the most secure facial recognition system on phones. With the bump in specifications, Apple has also stressed on the phone's capability to run extremely complicated games like Bethesda, even Blades is coming to iOS this fall. Apple Coming to the camera, the iPhone Xs and Xs Max sport a dual camera setup on the rear that consists of a 12-megapixel wide angle lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens. The front has a 7-megapixel sensor along with a special infrared blaster that senses depth and optimises the picture accordingly. Apple has also improved facial and scene recognition by using the A12's NPU along with an advanced Image Signal Processing system. The phone also has AI-assisted "Smart HDR" that automatically senses the scene and adds up HDR. The iPhone Xs Max has the biggest battery Apple has ever used. It comes with eSIM technology for dual-SIM support, this is the same technology that is being used on the cellular iPad and Apple Watch. The China variant will be having a separate SIM slot for dual standby. Apple Lastly, Apple has launched a new iPhone Xr that is supposed to be a slightly cheaper version for this year. From the front, it looks very similar to the Xs, but the back is similar to that of the iPhone 8. It sports a 6.1-inch LCD display that Apple calls "Liquid Retina Display". The notch has the same Face ID array we see on the other two siblings along with haptic feedback for shortcuts. It has a 12-megapixel single wide angle lens on the rear while the front has a 7-megapixel sensor.

  10. Imagine it's yet another day of the week, you are going about it as per usual and as your wonderful luck would have it, you have the opportunity to behold two of your country's very celebrated and popular celebrities, one being a legend, while riding up an elevator, as the door slides open at a random floor. © Reuters Now, imagine the same scenario starring 'The Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon and former bass guitarist and singer of 'The Beatles' Paul McCartney. Cool, right? For us, that would perhaps be the best conclusion to a mundane activity such as riding an elevator but this happened to be a reality for some folks in New York. © Reuters Recently, Fallon and McCartney ganged up together to prank the people riding the elevator at New York's 30 Rockefeller Plaza, who were there to take a tour of the NBC television studios. The prank was caught on camera for the world to see and the reactions they received from the fans, who were caught unaware by the two celebs, is truly heartwarming. © YouTube It is a two-minute fifty-second video clip that was shared on the official YouTube channel of 'The Tonight Show', where you can witness Fallon and McCartney sitting on sofas, a newspaper in hand, right outside the elevator lobby. When the elevator arrives, they reveal their faces from behind the newspaper, only to be greeted with excited cries and cheers. Take a look at the awesome video: Don't you agree that the reactions are totally priceless? We would have equally enjoyed the moment had we been there (though we can't promise to have contained our excitement as nicely) but watching the video is equally fun. It feels so nice to see celebs act so sportingly and leave people with a wide grin pasted on their faces.
  11. The Galaxy Note 9 launch is right around the corner and it seems like we can finally get a good glimpse of the upcoming smartphone. However, Samsung New Zealand put up the official intro video of the Galaxy Note 9 by accident, and we got to see the smartphone in all its glory. © Twitter The video was put on YouTube by mistake, which reveals the phone and the S Pen. The video shows off the blue variant with the gold/yellow S Pen. The video also tells us that the smartphone will come in a 512GB internal storage variant and can be further expanded by another 512GB via the microSD slot. This will make the smartphone capable of storing 1TB of data. As of now, it is not completely clear whether this variant will have 8GB of RAM, even though it looks likely. The video does not mention Bluetooth connectivity for the S Pen, as the video only shows us the stylus' ability to write on the display even when the phone is locked. © YouTube The Galaxy Note 9 announcement is only six days away and we know almost everything about the smartphone that is about to launch. Of course, this ruins Samsung's plans to surprise us with the new flagship device, however, one can never predict what the company has in store for its fans. The video was obviously taken down by the company, however, you can a look at a re-uploaded video below:
