  1. A sequel to a movie is coming 34 freaking years after the first one, and people literally can't wait to watch it. Now, that's how you know you made one of the most iconic movies ever. In case it wasn't clear, this is about the Top Gun sequel, Top Gun: Maverick. Of course, it wouldn't be a Top Gun movie without Tom Cruise, and in this movie, Maverick will be training a group of Top Gun graduates for a unique specialized mission. That's all exciting and stuff, but the most exciting part seems to be the fact that Tom Cruise claims that no movie will ever be made like Maverick again. Since it's 30 years in the making, something needed to be done to set it apart. Talking about his discussions with Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer, Tom Cruise said, "We just started talking. And I realized that there were things that we could accomplish cinematically." He added, "And I started getting excited about this big challenge of, 'How do we do it?' So I said to Jerry, I'll do it if... meaning, I'm not going to do the CGI stuff." Basically, all the cool aerial fight scenes we'll see in the movie were done for real and if anyone could've made that happen, it's Tom Cruise. Cruise goes on to highlight what stands out: "You donât know how hard this movie is going to be. No oneâs ever done this before. Thereâs never been an aerial sequence shot this way. I donât know if there ever will be again, to be honest." Since Maverick is a special character for Tom Cruise, his dedication to Top Gun doesn't seem surprising. In fact, apparently, he himself paid for his co-star Glenn Powell's pilot training. Comparing Maverick to the first movie, Jerry Bruckheimer said, "What's different about this movie is that [in the original Top Gun] we put the actors in the F-14s and we couldn't use one frame of it, except [for] some stuff on Tom, because they all threw up." He added, "It's hysterical to see their eyes roll back in their heads. So everything was done on a gimbal. But in this movie, Tom wanted to make sure the actors could actually be in the F-18s." The movie is set to release on June 24th and hopefully it won't get delayed since June is still far away. We really hope that we have a cure for the Coronavirus by then and don't have to wait longer to see these badass never-seen-before air fights. View the full article
  2. In the world of football, March is that key month which sets the tone for a thrilling season finale, as it marks the thrilling beginning of a pulsating end to the season. During this time of the year, all the club football leagues are generally nearing its end. With just a handful, yet crucial, games left in the season, the month puts the best clubs to test amid immense pressure to finish on a high. Then, there is the UEFA Champions League, the holy grail of European club football, which reaches into the knockout stages around March and begins to unravel scintillating clashes amongst the best in the business. All of those things are exactly the reason why March remains one of the highly-anticipated months in the otherwise boring life of a football fanatic. But, in what appears to be one of its kind, this March isn't like any other. In a month, where jaw-dropping contests once kept the spectators on their feet, this March was brought doom to the beautiful game with empty stadiums, suspended league seasons and travel restrictions. © Reuters Thanks to the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, all footballing action has been either cancelled, suspended or postponed. Whether it's La Liga, Serie A or the English Premier League, football fans, literally, have nothing to rescue them in such troubled times. So much so, that even the much-awaited Euro 2020 and Copa America 2020 have also been pushed back by a year. While football fans have been trying to get their fill through online gaming and old videos of their favourite footballers and clubs, the footballers, too, find themselves with a lot of idle time they don't know what to do with. So, as COVID-19 continues to threaten sporting events and denies fans some slam-bang action, here's a look at what Premier League footballers have been up to all this while: Some Boxing For Vardy???? https://t.co/g0R5SZyEcD â Jamie Vardy (@vardy7) March 2, 2020 'Toilet-Paper Footy' For Rashford View this post on InstagramOn a roll 𧻠Wanted to get in on the action...#stayathomechallenge (recovery version ð)A post shared by (@marcusrashford) Social Responsibility For VirgilI just wanted to send a message to say I hope everyone is doing OK in these difficult times.

  3. If you have kids, you better make sure you get their Christmas presents on time or else you're going to have yourself a very expensive Christmas. That's what happened to a mother in Michigan, USA, and while the situation is rather funny, it hurts us to know she spent $700 (INR 40,000) on presents, unknowingly. © Veronica Estell Facebook So here's what happened. Two kids from Michigan got super excited and ordered themselves gifts worth Rs 40,000 through Alexa, the home entertainment system. At first their mother, Veronica Estell, thought some generous soul has gifted the box full of toys to the kids, but to her disappointment, she soon discovered that the kids used her credit card to order toys for themselves. I can't fathom if the kids are actually really intelligent or just plain sadistic and mischievous. Obviously, Veronica confronted the kids and documented her confrontation in the form of a video which she shared on Facebook. The kids obviously couldn't wait any longer for Santa and took the initiative to buy themselves gifts really slyly, might I add. People really loved how funny this incident was, and their reaction to Veronica's story says it all. © Facebook © Facebook Kids these days are really smart. I mean, if a one-year-old can operate a mobile phone and find music on the phone to cheer them up, then I am pretty sure older kids can order really expensive gifts using their parents credit card. So, if you have any kids around, maybe hide your credit cards and ask Alexa to never obey them. View the full article
  4. The tragic burning of the Notre-Dame Cathedral spire in Paris has now resulted in donations and help from unlikely sources for its restoration. In fact, 'Assassin's Creed Unity' may even be used as a reference for restoration work, as the game features a scaled replica of the historic site. The 3D model in the game is incredibly detailed and will probably be used as a reference to restore the cathedral to its formal glory. © Ubisoft The game also lets players traverse the monument and parkour over almost every inch of the structure. You can even go inside the cathedral in the game and explore the interiors. In lieu of the burning, you can now actually do that for free, thanks to an initiative by Ubisoft. Apart from donating €500,000 to restoration works, Ubisoft is now giving away 'Assassin's Creed Unity' for free on PC. © Ubisoft “Ubisoft wants to give all gamers the chance to experience the majesty and beauty of the cathedral”, the publisher's statement reads. “You can download Assassin's Creed Unity on PC for free here, and you'll own it forever in your Uplay games library.” © Ubisoft The Notre-Dame in the game was detailed and developed by level designer Caroline Miousse. It took 14 months of production and took three weeks to get the interior right. Due to Ubisoft's hard work, the cathedral is a fully explorable 90% scale model of the real monument.
  5. Whatever PM Modi says or does, it trends. That's the rule of Twitter in India. So of course, him launching a new campaign was bound to be talked about, no surprise there. PM Modi launched a 'Main Bhi Chowkidar' campaign this morning and shared a video and message on Twitter. Your Chowkidar is standing firm & serving the nation. But, I am not alone. Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar. Everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar. Today, every Indian is saying-#MainBhiChowkidar — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) March 16, 2019 The video is basically a song with lyrics showcasing the government's initiatives. In the tweet, he says that today, everyone's a Chowkidar and well, now people are tweeting #MainBhiChowkidar. This particular hashtag soon became the top worldwide trend on Twitter and his tweet alone has thousands and thousands of replies, retweets, and likes. Soon, people started tweeting using the hashtag saying every Indian is a chowkidar today because “Everyone who is fighting corruption, dirt, social evils is a Chowkidar, everyone working hard for the progress of India is a Chowkidar.” Now everyone's proud to be a chowkidar. Proud to be a Chowkidar. #MainBhiChowkidar https://t.co/XXwo5hxkrb — B.S.

  6. Valentine's Day is overrated. Every year, one rotten day, couples get to vomit all the cheese they produce in their respective relationships in the entire year on Instagram. Some of the the captions are beyond annoying. Did we mention the creepy hearts that flood the streets and the markets as they monetize this pathetic holiday? Pink and red become the most annoying colours. And what's with the gooey Whatsapp messages on family groups? it's like an epidemic spreading and consuming everything and everyone that comes in twos. If you're single this year, you're probably immune to this horrible disease of wasting away your money on hearts and chocolates. Good for you. And we appreciate you for that, which is why we have ideas for 14 of February to save you from all the exasperation of seeing all these couples. Here are some non-romantic ideas for Valentine's Day that you can enjoy with you and yourself: 1. Get Yourself A Comfy Night Suit © Instagram If you're going to stay at home and chill on Netflix, might as well get yourself a fresh pair of night suit set that makes you feel nice about yourself and also feels nice on the skin. You could indulge in solids or get a quirky pattern like avocados all over, or a Marvel/DC-themed set. 2. A New Pair Underwear & Quirky Socks To Match With It © HM If you're not big on staying in and would rather go hook up with someone because who even catches feelings #gross. A new pair of quirky underwear and socks are a great idea to turn around a dull evening. 3. Face Sheet Masks & Grooming Products © Instagram You could also get yourself Korean grooming products like a face sheet mask which locks in the moisture and hydrates your skin. Or a glowy mask, take a cue from celebrities like Ansel Elgort, John Mayer, at least you'll come out a man with skin that girls get jealous of. 4. Get A New Look © Instagram A great makeover is a great way to spend tomorrow. Go to a salon and get a new hairstyle that suits you. You'll surprise yourself with the power of a great haircut that will certainly turn heads around.
  7. There have been numerous reports of PUBG addiction in the last few months and we've even seen people resorting to physical harm after getting addicted to the game. A recent report by the Quartz states that a PUBG fan spends more than 8 hours in a week on an average on the game. Institutions have sent out circulars asking for a complete ban on the game, and people have even sent requests to the government for initiation of a ban. While we'd laugh at a ban, the situation is actually getting serious. More than 120 cases of PUBG addiction were registered at Services for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) clinic in National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS). © YouTube Games are supposed to be a source of entertainment, and getting hooked onto them at the cost of work or studies should never be a choice. The symptoms of addiction include deprivation of sleep, loss of real life interests, and subjectively lower attendance along with poor academic performance. If you're a victim of the game's addiction, here are a few steps you can take to ensure healthy usage of technology. © Razer Firstly, you need to start accepting responsibility and know that you are addicted to the game. We cannot solve an issue without acknowledging its existence. Secondly, you have to understand the impact it's having on your day to day life. Are your studies getting affected due to the game? If you're working, has your performance and focus at work changed? If the answer is yes, start thinking about your other hobbies and activities. PUBG was launched nearly a year back, what was your entertainment back then? How did you spend time refreshing yourself? Finding healthy alternatives to passing time can help in distancing yourself from the game. © YouTube You also need to stop blaming the game for captivating you. The phone, the game, the developer etc. aren't responsible for getting you hooked. And no, we don't mean to say abandon the game completely. Overconsumption of anything is hazardous, draw a line between entertainment and addiction. Set yourself time limits and follow them. A good way to understand how much time you've wasted is to keep a track and calculate how many hours you've lost in a week. © Pexels Also, don't be embarrassed to ask for help. Share the issue with your close friends and family and ask them to give a hand. PUBG could also be a distraction you've chosen because of other stressful situations in life. Lastly, even technology can help you out thanks to rising awareness of technology addiction. Both, Google and Apple have recognised that mobile phone addiction in the modern world is a serious problem and are trying to bring a viable solution. If you game on smartphones, you can easily follow the below steps to self reuglate your gaming addiction: For Android © YouTube Last year, Google launched the Digital Wellbeing program with Android Pie update and it aims to help you reduce your smartphone usage. All you need to do is download the app from Play Store, and head to the "Settings" menu. Scroll down and tap "Accessibility", you'll come across two splash pages. The hub has a circle at the top, and the number in the middle shows how long the screen has been turned on. With various colours, the circle shows the apps you spend the most time on. Using these analytics, the system knows which apps you use the most and it tracks your usage over a period of time. © Google Now, you can use the "App Timer" to restrict usage within a certain period of time. Let's say you mark PUBG for "30 minutes", after 30 minutes of gameplay, the app will minimize and a popup appears saying you've hit your allotted screen time. Even the app icon will turn grey indicating it's not available, and taping it would open a screen reminding you about App Limits. Lastly, you can set a "Wind Down" mode that basically makes your phone go grey-scale and the Do Not Disturb mode is automatically switch on. Even a blue light filter is switched on to help you actually wind down to sleep. All you need to do is set a time period, for example 10PM to 6AM. The phone knows that's your sleep cycle and winds down the phone to prevent you from using the phone. For iOS © YouTube Even iOS has a similar feature called Screen Time and it's natively supported on iOS 12. Just go to the "Settings" app and scroll down to "Screen Time". Switch on the feature and it'll start collecting usage logs in the background. You can see when you used your phone, on which apps, and how for long for. You can also see how the overall time you spent on your phone compares to the average. To set up "App Limits", just hit "Add Limit", choose a category, and set your timer. When you hit the wall, Screen Time will let you know with a full-screen notification. Assume this to be your warning message since the notification gives you a ignore option and 15-minute extension. © Apple Unlike Android's Digital Wellbeing, you can select a particular app and need to select a category like social media or gaming. It has a "Downtime" feature that will restrict usage of external apps within the set period and only a few stock apps will be accessible. These are just a few tools that'll help you remind yourself, "You're playing too much!"
  8. If you still haven't watched the teaser of 'The Lion King', what are you even doing with your life? It's the only thing that matters today, that and dealing with a whole new wave of nostalgia that one minute and thirty two second video has hit us with. People are emotional, people are crying, people are excited, it's just everything mixed together, and people obviously took to Twitter to share this excitement with everyone. From comparing scenes from the new teaser to the original movie, to just losing it over the adorable baby Simba, to already preparing themselves for the tragic death of Mufasa, people really can't stop talking about 'The Lion King' and no one can blame them. So here are all the funny, emotional reactions to the teaser. Pun game too strong. If you're not excited for the new Lion King movie.. you're lion — Kelsey Impicciche (@kelseydangerous) November 23, 2018 Already dreading that. Damn, Disney really bout to make me pay them money to watch Mufasa die in Ultra HD 4K pic.twitter.com/NDG9tLDpIL — X (@XLNB) November 22, 2018 Oh no.

THE LION KING (2019) pic.twitter.com/O2gd7T07L6 — John Cullen (@nellucnhoj) November 23, 2018 That was honestly enough. When I was 5, it was Mufasa's death that made me cry. At 26, apparently it only takes his voice in the trailer. — Angelique Fiske (@angeliquefiske) November 22, 2018 It's going to be so great! just hit me that donald Glover and Beyoncé have a duet in the lion king pic.twitter.com/ync66AMORC — hag (@leoyolk) November 23, 2018 I need some context for this picture.

New Lion King trailer is amazing. I'm billing @Disney for the therapy I'm going to need. As if watching a cartoon Musfasa dying wasn't traumatic enough, now I can see the light drain from his eyes in IMAX 3D. #TheLionKing — Jack Whitehall (@jackwhitehall) November 23, 2018 The cutest! Ok but baby Simba in The Lion King (2019) trailer is SO damn cute pic.twitter.com/7kfpXkoWq4 — femme fatale (@eliesaaab) November 23, 2018 A side by side. And....here it is!

  9. Mumbai Police's Twitter page is the best meme account, don't even fight me on that. They always keep up with the latest memes and internet challenges and then put their own twist to it, making it even better. No one wants to see a boring ass PSA when you can edit the latest meme that's going viral. 'Kiki Challenge' has taken over the world but I'm sure a lot of people are sick of it now. So, here's Mumbai Police saying what everyone's thinking- We love your safety and can't leave it to be decided by Kiki! #GetInToTheCar #kikiChallenge #InMySafetyFeelings pic.twitter.com/OqOgmPgJA6 — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) August 2, 2018 They're always on point and even used the new, most annoying Instagram update and made it better. Such personal questions don't need insta replies! They need to be sent insta-ntly to the police #OnlineSafety pic.twitter.com/gSUziD9Ech — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) July 13, 2018 Their latest PSA also has a hilarious pop-culture reference. I'm sure everyone has seen 'Thor: Ragnarok' – probably the best Marvel movie yet – and that one scene with the fight between Thor and The Hulk, his friend from work. Mumbai Police used a picture of The Hulk wearing a helmet as a way of encouraging people to wear helmets, because well, even the strongest people need protection. Everything may not work out with all the grave mistakes you make! One mistake and... #WearAHelmet pic.twitter.com/rVP7cnnI89 — Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) August 6, 2018 Usually, people always respond with a lot of laughing emojis, agreeing to their funny tweets, but today was a little different. A lot of people in the replies took this opportunity to point out how many times they have seen the cops on bikes without a helmet. A little bit hypocritical, isn't it? People also posted pictures as evidence and asked them to take action against the cops because they have to lead by example, right? What do you have to say on this @MumbaiPolice? Are the rules only gor the common man? Check out the vehicle registration number and catch this cop and then post it on your Twitter handle #dareforyou #dontjustpreach #practiceandpreach pic.twitter.com/t9jkZHOopr — remo jacob (@remoFD) August 6, 2018 That hashtag, tho! #WearAHelmet for you too#MondayMotivation pic.twitter.com/ciDCX814Jv — Rosh (@TekiRosh) August 6, 2018 The laws in this country are only meant for the common man. Everyone else from the lawmakers to the top bureaucracy is permitted to behave as they please because they all feed off from our hard earned tax money — Em (@thebigfatbao) August 6, 2018 It should. Hope this applies to all officers of @MumbaiPolice & @mtptraffic as well... They are amongst wilful offenders for traffic violations !! — Abhijaat Sinha (@abhijaat) August 6, 2018 But, they obviously received a lot of positive response as well, with people appreciating the effort. Marketing skills at it's best ð — sudeep (@sud_singh13) August 6, 2018 This person has the correct idea. Looking at the number of potholes, I feel only helmet is not enough, need to wear full body armour.... — P (@elakprash) August 6, 2018
  10. My name is Hinakshi Bhatia and I'm currently out of ideas. Yesterday, I did a ground-breaking story about how kids look exactly like their parents. Since that is such earth-shattering news, I thought a Hollywood version of the same thing was also required – because we don't discriminate – so, here is a list of all the star kids who look exactly like their parents. 1. Reese Witherspoon and Ava Elizabeth Phillippe I feel like this mother-daughter duo is the first one on every list like this, so obviously had to start with this. 2. Jay Z and Blue Ivy Blue Ivy is actually a perfect mix of Beyoncé and Jay Z but she looks almost like Jay Z at this age, it's uncanny. 3. DJ Khaled and Ashad DJ Khaled – the guy who refuses to go down on his wife – and his son look scarily alike, however, we hope he has different views on certain issues when he grows up. 4. Will Smith and Jaden Smith Both of them are cool, both of them have their own unique social media presence and both of them look alike. 5. Gwyneth Paltrow and Apple Martin Even after that unfortunate name, Apple is one of the luckiest kids to have such good-looking parents and she's growing up to look exactly like her beautiful mother. 6. Angelina Jolie and Shiloh The exact same features, especially the cheekbones! 7. David Beckham and Romeo Beckham This is one beautiful and genetically blessed family and I'm mad that I'm not a part of it. 8. Demi Moore and Rumer Willis The fact that they're not twins and are actually mother and daughter is messing with my head. 9. John Legend and Luna John Legend and Chrissy Teigen's daughter looks exactly like how John looked as a kid.
  11. Hello readers of MensXP, we have some exciting and exclusive news for all of you. After doing some research, we figured out that kids apparently look exactly like their parents. Who would've even thought that was possible? This is all so new, wow. (See, I'm already dragging myself, so people don't have to @ me in the comments. K thanks bye) Okay, so as we all know Bollywood is full of some really good-looking people and then those good-looking people get married to other good-looking people and make even better-looking kids. See, that is why nepotism was such a buzz word last year. All kids are a mixture of their parents, but some kids end up looking like the spitting image of one of their parents, it's kind of weird to see. So, here are some kids of Bollywood stars that look like an exact copy of their parents. 1. Saif Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan © Twitter They look exactly like each other, I mean that's so cool. 2. Kareena Kapoor Khan and Taimur Ali Khan © Twitter Saif's first son looks like him, but his second son is a copy of Kareena. 3. Amrita Singh and Sara Ali Khan © Twitter Okay, this family just produces copies of themselves, come on now. 4. Shah Rukh Khan and Aryan Khan © Twitter Aryan looks so similar to what SRK used to look at his age. 5. Rakesh Roshan and Hrithik Roshan © Twitter Okay, I have to admit, this might have been the first time I've seen Rakesh Roshan with hair. And, looks like now we also have an idea what Hrithik will look like in the future. 6. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya Bachchan © Twitter They not only look alike but they're even wearing the same hairband in the picture. 7. Soni Razdan and Alia Bhatt © Twitter Like mother like daughter? The face cut is exactly same in both of them. 8. Rishi Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor © Twitter Clean shaven Ranbir is a spitting image of a young Rishi Kapoor, TBH. 9. Javed Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar © Twitter I think we're all just used to the old white haired Javed Akhtar that we never even realize how much Farhan looks like him.

  13. Yes, finally an 'Avengers: Infinity War' story where we don't have to put a disclaimer that there are spoilers! I'm sure everyone is aware of 'celebrities reading mean tweets', arguably the best segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and I'm sure everyone loves to re-watch all the old episodes on a regular basis, or maybe that's just me. But, no one can deny that this one simple segment has become so iconic that a lot of people still remember so many 'mean' tweets from previous episodes, I sure do. Remember this? Or this? This time, Jimmy Kimmel made every Marvel fanboy's dream come true by gathering up all of our favourite characters and then making them read mean tweets about themselves. Turns out that even superheroes need to be taken down a notch every once in a while. And, what better way than to read what people are saying about you on Twitter, that too on live television. So brave. Even though 'Avengers: Infinity War' is out and already breaking records, Jimmy Kimmel is still not done plugging the movie, and we're very thankful for that. So, let's just dive in and enjoy! Starting with the first one to die, seems appropriate. I feel bad for the person who thinks Tom Hiddleston is ugly, because they're clearly blind. Next comes Anthony Mackie who got a very precise summary of how he looks. But, that's such a unique look, it does help. Next up is our very own Black Widow being compared to a celery. That's a valid question, Scarlet. Even Bucky wasn't spared. But, potato is universally loved, so is Sebastian Stan. Then comes Winston Duke. How do you identify crackhead legs, though? Someone called out Elizabeth Olsen's weird thumbs. And, then she proceeded to show everyone her hidden talent. Don Cheadle's mean tweet was rhyming, kinda. I totally agree with him. Then, we have Dave Bautista realizing that there are so many people without a life, so they just hate everyone on Twitter. Protect Drax at any cost. Benedict Cumberbatch's mean tweet seems a little, how do you say it, just a little strange, don't you think? Even he can't stop laughing at this beautiful insult. How dare someone attack Tom Holland like this? He's precious. But, at least this is better than the conspiracy theory of him having a frog in his mouth all the time. Some motherf*cker had a lot of nerve to say shit about Samuel L Jackson. But, this was the best mean tweet, tbh. Just look at that smile! Even though Paul Rudd wasn't in Infinity War but he still wasn't spared from mean tweets. But, he looks like he doesn't really care. Yes, Karen, who do you think you are, running around leaving scars? (Sorry) Yes, Google will help. Paul Bettany – what a guy. He died twice okay, leave him alone. The mean tweet for Chadwick Boseman is my favourite. It's a good question, though. Don't say that about Chris Pratt! But, why does he look like he kind of agrees? They insulted Chris Evans and Captain America at the same time. That's quite impressive, and I wish I could make him laugh like that, even if I have to be mean to him. Yes, almost everyone is here except for Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. My theory is that they couldn't even find any mean tweets about them because Chris is just so lovable and no one can say a bad thing about Robert Downey Jr. Even though I've taken my time to put the whole story in a gif form above, here's the whole video with 'Everybody Hurts' playing in the background.

  15. “Comedy is the last bastion of free speech.” – Bill Hicks The greatest achievement of stand-up in India is that it exists. That's a major upgrade from obscurity! Zakir Khan, Abhishek Upamanyu and Aditi Mittal have become household names. These people are earning a living by talking on a stage for an hour and from an outsider's perspective, that is incredible. “He came up with that on the spot!” or “Her way of talking is just naturally funny!” are common phrases that stunned audience members say after witnessing a good performance. It's easy to forget but the stand-up artist is selling an illusion or an act, one where he/she always comes out on top. But, behind the curtain, their lives and their beliefs are not as hilarious as they seem to be on stage. © Youtube Zakir Khan Indian stand-up is plagued with issues that are unique to an emergent comedy scene trying to survive in a predominantly conservative society. There are multiple cases of upcoming stand-up comedians having to use the back doors of bars to make hasty exits because one person 'mentioned Ganpati' in their joke. At another gig, another person was simply talking about the freedom struggle, making fun of the British royalty in fact, and one drunk audience member's reaction was to force the organiser to shut the show down immediately. Because of one drunk uncle who wouldn't understand irony if it slapped him in the face, that show and all future comedy shows at that venue were scrapped. The most unfortunate example is that of a hardworking and ruthlessly funny new comic having to flee Mumbai for making a joke on Mumbai airports. Since the AIB roast, this last instance has had a major impact on comics all over the country – they now know where the line is and it's pretty close. Several other incidents like the dog-filter on PM Modi's face, the death threats that Kunal Kamra receives on a daily basis, or the arrest of Kiku Sharda for mimicking Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, have cemented the idea that the laws of our apparently democratic country are not conducive for free speech. Not so funny now, eh? © YouTube Kunal Kamra For an art-form that relies on political incorrectness, this is an alarming and discouraging sign for both, the performer and the audience. For those wondering why Indian comics are not as funny as Western comics, not only are we lagging behind in terms of age (stand-up in the US is over 40 years old, we're barely 7) but our freedom to experiment is diminishing. If Lenny Bruce didn't dare to experiment, there would be no George Carlin nor Richard Pryor. If we can't make fun of airports, how will we ever reach the comedic maturity to make fun of the human condition? Although the scene is mostly united against such intolerance, other factors such as plagiarism and blacklisting of comics due to difference of opinion have led to infighting, often on Twitter. For example, a comedian who had performed twice alleged that another relatively unknown comic stole one of his jokes. When they met the next time at a bar gig, he was called out on-stage, which led to a post-show scuffle which was, unfortunately, more entertaining than their individual performances. They used the mic stand a lot more creatively off-stage. Oh and fun fact: they both haven't performed since. © Youtube Abhishek Upmanyu Stand-up is an art-form that celebrates individuality, but almost everybody belongs to a clique even if it's not officially branded with three random letters. The green room is where members of different cliques are forced to communicate with each other and it's becoming increasingly tough to distinguish between healthy jibes and mean-spirited bullying. It's almost as if some comics take it upon themselves to make sure that everyone has a thick skin, as if the audience's response wasn't enough. For example, it has become normalized to make fun of a particular Mumbai comic who's been doing comedy for a long time without much success. Newcomers start roasting him casually, commenting on his jokes, his persona, his belief system, completely disregarding the challenging nature of the comedy circuit. It's a shame that such jokes about a fellow comic have become icebreakers, it's objectively cruel and insensitive. Clearly, the green room is not a positive working environment for anyone except comics and even barely for comics. It's as if the green room owes its colour to its toxicity. © Twitter Abhinav singh To understand why, you need to understand the kind of people who do comedy for a living. These are frank, opinionated people who practise the art of making others believe in their point of view. Being a contrarian is a prerequisite. Comics are used to having no filter and won't hesitate from employing the most absurd reasoning to get their thoughts across. This kind of brutal honesty brings out the worst in people, although to be fair, we can't expect edgy stand-up if no one is experimenting with dark, forbidden thoughts. But, when taken out of context, these ideas often lead to miscommunication, bullying and on rare occasions, hand-to-hand combat. And now you know why Indian comedians are trying to be fit and muscular. Ironically, some comics find it hard to take jokes on themselves. A new comic from Gujarat, Ramesh Jain, was banned by two producers (often, the producers are comics themselves) for commenting on the secluded location of the venue and how the tickets were overpriced. Since then, these producers have spread the word and made it tough for Ramesh to get on stage, whereas Ramesh is asking other comics to boycott their venues. Regardless of who wins this petty fight, comedy will lose. © Youtube The Viral Fever Furthermore, the *** ratio of the circuit is far from impressive. Almost all producers in Mumbai reserve spots for comediennes and all-female line-ups are advertised to encourage more women to be part of the scene. Even these little attempts at improving the gender balance in the scene don't receive unanimous support. Implying some sort of reverse-sexism, certain male open micers feel that their stage time is being unfairly taken by female comics. The scene is struggling with questions like, “Is everything fine on stage since everything is more or less fiction anyway? Is it ok to say a sexist joke if it's hilarious? Can a comic play a funny racist character on stage without being branded as racist in real life?” The underlying question is that is comedy the be-all and end-all? Or should it take the back seat when placed against an important cause like women empowerment? These are questions that no one really has an answer to, but questions that need significant thought. Furthermore, comics expressing their opinion on Twitter is often interpreted as virtue signalling and there's a reason for that. Some senior comics did call an open house meeting to form an Internal Complaints Committee to make the scene a safe, harassment-free zone for everyone. This was heralded as a revolutionary idea since the comedy circuit has always been a fragmented, unorganised space. The result was the creation of an eponymous Facebook group. Although a step in the right direction, not much else has happened since. We comedians may be just as inefficient as the government we criticise so often. Conclusion If the idea of becoming a comedian excites you, think again. For every famous comic you know, there are hundreds of funny people who haven't made it yet, and part of the reason is the way the circuit works. The business of comedy mimics the nature of the art-form – one person armed with nothing but their opinions against hundreds, even thousands of people as they advance in their career. Those who make it must really love the process of writing jokes because the Indian stand-up circuit is a tough place to be in regardless of the number of views on a YouTube channel. This is the real Great Indian Laughter Challenge and it's only going to get better. Disclaimer: Images for representational use only!

Doctor Daniela Carvalho controls Jonathan Jauregui, 7, remotely as Rady Children's Hospital unveil a program that uses remote control cars, donated by the local police officers charity, to take young patients to the operating room, in San Diego, California, US September 19, 2017. Photo: Reuters 1 LOS ANGELES: A San Diego children?s hospital unveiled a collection of remote-controlled luxury mini cars on Tuesday that allows its young patients to ?drive? themselves to the operating room. The cars at the Rady Children?s Hospital are actually operated by a nurse or a doctor and are part of a new program designed to make children more relaxed before their procedures. ?The kids are having fun. The parents are seeing that they?re relaxed and that they?re happy,? said Dr Daniela Carvalho, medical director of surgical services at the hospital. The cars were donated by the San Diego Regional Law Enforcement Teddy Bear Drive. Children have their pick of a BMW, Mercedes, or Lamborghini, ensuring their ride to the operating room is a luxurious one.
  17. For the first time ever in the country, Indian railways has added solar panels to the roof of a train and this train has already begun its journey around New Delhi. With trains consuming so much fuel, this is a huge step in reducing our carbon footprint. © Youtube One particular train has been decked up with 16 shiny photovoltaic panels. But instead of replacing the diesel engine completely, everything else, from the lights and fans inside the train to the information displays, that are usually powered by diesel, will now run on solar energy, massively cutting the amount of fuel consumed. "We will be inducting at least four other solar-powered trains in the next six months," Anil Kumar Saxena, Railways spokesperson, told AFP on Wednesday. The batteries get charged by the solar panels during the day and take over when there is no sunlight. Diesel would only be used as a last resort, when the batteries have finished up. © Youtube Keeping the bigger picture in mind, these are just smaller, but equally important, steps contributing to India's fight against climate change. As of now, the use of this alternate source if energy is expected to save around 21,000 litres of diesel every year. What a great step!
  18. Having a pet dog or cat more than doubles the odds that humans will find a tick on themselves, and that could raise the risk of contracting tick-borne diseases like Lyme, researchers say. ?Ticks can transmit disease to people and their pets, particularly in the warmer months when they are most active,? said lead study author Erin Jones of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in Baltimore. Jones? team analysed data collected by a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention initiative called TickNET, which aims to prevent tick-borne diseases across the country. Lyme disease is the most common such disease in the US; the risk of exposure is highest in northeastern states, the researchers write in Zoonoses and Public Health. ?Preventing tick bites by avoiding wooded and brushy areas with high grass and leaf litter, appropriately using repellents on skin and clothing, and checking for ticks after going outside are effective prevention methods,? Jones said in an email. The researchers surveyed 2,727 households in three states where Lyme disease is endemic: Connecticut, Maryland and New York. More than half of the households, 1,526, had a dog, a cat or both. About 88 percent of these households reported using some form of tick control on their pets. Overall, about 31 percent of pet owners had found a tick crawling on a human in the household and 19 percent of pet owners had found a tick attached to a human household member. By comparison, about 20 percent of non-pet owning households found a tick crawling on a human and 14 percent found a tick attached to a human. About 20 percent of pet-owning households had found ticks on their pets. Finding a tick on a pet doubled the likelihood of finding ticks crawling on or attached to household members. Owners still found ticks on their pets when they used tick control medication, the study authors note. But the researchers found no significant difference in tick-borne diseases reported by pet owners and non-owners - in each group, about 20 percent had had a verified tick-borne illness. Certain property characteristics, such as having a vegetable garden, compost pile, log pile, bird feeder, stone walls and children?s play equipment, were associated with higher odds of finding ticks crawling on, or attached to, human household members. ?Lyme disease is getting more attention because the number of human cases has increased, and tick habitats are changing as an indirect consequence of climate change,? said Dr Bruno Chomel, a veterinary researcher at the University of California, Davis who wasn?t involved in the study. ?It makes sense that people who have pets, especially dogs, are more likely to be around fields or areas where ticks could be hanging out,? he told Reuters Health by phone. ?Pets can bring these parasites into the human environment, especially if they sit on couches or sleep in beds with owners.? One limitation of the study is that tick control use was self-reported, so the research team wasn?t sure whether the owners applied the medication accurately and consistently or what brand was used. In addition, the study group may have been too small to detect an increased risk of tick-borne diseases when a household included pets, the authors write. ?Pet owners are encouraged to check their pets for ticks daily, especially after they spend time outdoors,? Jones told Reuters Health. ?Enjoy the outdoors, but prevent tick bites on yourselves and your pets.?
  19. You only know John Cena. You can’t see John Cena. He’s everywhere. Smashing bodies in the ring and smashing weights in the gym but, you can’t see him. Probably the most loved WWE superstar, after The Rock, John Cena has successfully become a meme sensation on the internet, courtesy- his signature style of saying ‘you can’t see me’! Yeah, you have heard him saying that, fo sho. © Twitter Cena’s been in news a lot recently talking about his brutally heavy lifting sessions. If you didn’t know, there’s a video of Cena bench pressing a pec tearing 481 pounds, raw! Yup, no suits, no belts- just like that. This number alone puts him in the top 10 bench pressers of the WWE. Simply incredible! Recently, Cena turned 40 years old. Yup, hard to believe, because he just doesn’t seem to age. While a 40-year-old man would grab a drink at a bar on his fortieth, Cena went in and deadlifted 600 fucking pounds. Check out this video! And, he just walks away like nobody could see him. We will repeat it again? Who knows, but all we can say is that we’re super impressed that he deadlifted a massive 272 kilograms!
  20. The tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was always going to be special. The tournament witnessed eight opening ceremonies to mark its 10th anniversary, Afghanistan players were included for the first time and the teams couldn't have looked more threatening than they do this year. With over 15 games played in the tournament, the ongoing season has already witnessed hat-tricks, blazing hundred and some scintillating clashes. But, while the tournament has witnessed great level of competition bringing out the best in cricketers, it has been equally marred with some unbelievable umpiring howlers. Seeing a lot of domestic umpires in this seasons @IPL ,and the umpiring standards have been way below par...arguably the worst ..contd — subramani badrinath (@s_badrinath) April 9, 2017 While the IPL has always been a springboard to limelight for young Indian players, the ongoing edition is turning out to be a nightmare for the domestic umpires. With several poor decisions already in the tournament, India's lack of depth in the department of producing good umpires has also been exposed. Among all #IPL seasons.poor umpiring standards have prevailed for ages in domestic circuit,its just being highlighted through #IPL2017 — subramani badrinath (@s_badrinath) April 9, 2017 With only four ICC Elite Umpires - Chris Gaffany, Nigel Llong, Marais Erasmus from abroad and India's Sundaram Ravi - officiating this season, the onus was on the domestic umpires to make the opportunity count. But, rather than making an impression, the Indian umpires have so far made an utter fool of themselves in jam-packed stadiums. Here's a look at these idiots who are unfortunately deciding the fate of cricketers in the IPL this season: Buttler Ruled Out Despite A Massive Deflection (MI vs RPS, Match 2) © Twitter With just second game into the tournament, Indian Umpire Sundaram Ravi began what turned eventually turned out to be long list of howlers this season. Jos Buttler was looking in sublime touch for Mumbai after he smashed 38 runs off a mere 18 balls. He had scored 12 runs in the previous over when the Englishman played all around a length ball that appeared to have skidded on. Jos Buttler given out despite being not out ..Yeh chitting hai chitting !! — Feisty Lass (@insane_case) April 6, 2017 There was a loud appeal from the Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) camp, but Buttler was unmoved knowing the ball took a massive deflection off his bat before hitting him on his front pad. But, to the utter disbelief of Buttler and the Mumbai side, Umpire Ravi raised his finger even before the Pune fielders had completed their appeal. Pollard Gets A Second Life (MI vs RPS, Match 2) © Twitter The sordid saga of Umpire Sundaram Ravi didn't just stop at Buttler. The Indian umpire was back at it again, this time seemingly looking to even things out in the very next over. Kieron Pollard was rapped on the pads by Imran Tahir and the ball was surely going to crash into the stumps. All that Umpire Ravi had to decide was whether the ball hit bat or pad first. To the sheer agony of Pune and their home crowd, Umpire Ravi concluded that the ball had hit the bat first before adjudging the batsman not out. The replays, however, showcased a different story altogether, suggesting that the ball had hit the pad first. The decision was so poor that MS Dhoni - wicket-keeping for Pune - jokingly signalled for a DRS review and was reprimanded after the game for the minor offence. Buttler Undone By Another Howler (MI vs KKR, Match 7) © Twitter Jos Buttler found himself at the receiving end yet again during the match between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). After getting off to a blazing start in a chase of 179 against KKR, Buttler was up against Ankit Rajpoot who swung a low full-toss into the right-hander. Buttler failed to get any bat on the ball which eventually struck him on the pads. While the appeal was vociferous, the ball was apparently sliding down the leg side. But, Umpire Nitin Menon thought otherwise and got his name registered in the infamous list of umpiring blunders this season. Rohit Sharma Left Fuming (MI vs KKR, Match 7) © Twitter While Mumbai were still reeling with Buttler's dismissal, the hosts suffered another blow in the very next over. Sunil Narine had been bowling leg-breaks throughout the over, and foxed Rohit with the off-break that the right-hander failed to pick. While Rohit looked clueless, rooted to the crease, the ball had taken a deflection off the inside edge. But Umpire CK Nandan wasted no time in ruling the Mumbai skipper out. Rohit was left red-faced and even had a word with the Indian umpire after his decision. But, it was KKR who got their second lucky break in two overs. Jadhav's Innings Cut Short By A Blunder (RCB vs KXIP, Match 8) © Twitter Kedar Jadhav has been in scintillating form for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) this season. So when Bangalore found themselves struggling at 18/2, Jadhav was expected to partner AB de Villiers to anchor their innings. But, thanks to Umpire Chettithody Shamshuddin, Bangalore suffered another jolt in the fifth over. It was Varun Aaron's in-dipping delivery that struck Jadhav high on the pads. Since Jadhav is not a tall man, he jumped at the point of impact. Though it did look a bit close to the naked eye, the replays later suggested that the ball was going way over the stumps. Warner Fools Indian Umpires (SRH vs MI, Match 10) © Twitter If you thought unbelievably stupid decisions were the only thing our domestic umpires were good at it, wait till you hear this incident. David Warner smacked Jasprit Bumrah towards third man fence for a four off the last ball of the sixth over. And, as Mitchell McClenaghan ran into bowl the first delivery of the seventh over, we all were surprised to see Warner taking the strike once again. @davidwarner31 played the last ball of 6th over for a 4 & then played the 1st ball of the 7th over..How on earth?? @BCCI #MIvSRH #umpires — R SRIDHAR (@coach_rsridhar) April 12, 2017 This gaffe was arguably worse than most of the previous ones, since the umpires failed to keep track of such a basic aspect of the game. And, no wonder, it was the infamous Indian pair of Nitin Menon and CK Nandan that was caught napping once again. Uthappa Gets Lucky (KKR vs SRH, Match 14) © Twitter While Kolkata continued to turn the heads by making Sunil Narine open their innings, the biggest surprise of the night came through Umpire Anil Dandekar. After Narine failed to repeat his heroics from the previous game, the pair of Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa was expected to get their innings moving. Coming in to bat at 10/1, Uthappa got the rub of the green as early as the first delivery he faced. Bhuvneshwar Kumar's outswinger rattled off Uthappa's bat before being collected by Hyderabad wicket-keeper Naman Ojha. But amid a vociferous appeal from the Hyderabad fielders, Umpire Dandekar shocked everyone by ruling the batsman not out. Thanks to the umpiring howler, Uthappa went on to hammer 68 runs off 39 balls - his highest score this IPL.
  21. When you think of the words ‘safe’, ‘secure’ and ‘loved’, the first names that evoke these emotions are the names of your parents. The two people who bring you to this world and inculcate values that stay with you for life. But what do you have to say to a set of ‘Jihadi’ parents who groom their little daughters, hardly 8 years old, to be a part of a suicide mission? Yes, the world has come to this. A gripping video doing the rounds shows exactly that. © YouTube The mother explains why she is ready to send her young daughters on a suicide mission and that ‘jihad’ is a Muslim obligation, so age doesn’t matter. She then embraces her daughters and kisses them goodbye. © YouTube Another man in the video is shown grooming the girls and telling then that fear is futile. He is probably the father of the two girls. © YouTube Both the girls say ‘Allahu Akbar’ towards the end and are seen wearing burqas. It was reported that one of the little girls walked into a police station in Damascus and was killed in the blast there. The man is heard asking 'Shouldn’t you leave fighting to the men? Or did all of them flee in the green buses?' he then later adds 'You are not going to be afraid because you are going to the heavens, right?' the girls were named Fatima and Islam. © YouTube Shortly after the video was recorded, there was an explosion in a police station in Damascus. A little girl was reported to have lost her way and asked to use the bathroom, and was killed in the blast. Police think that one of the little girls in the video was involved. A news channel even showcased the remains of the girl, blurring her face. © YouTube Humanity has been stripped off from the face of the Earth and whatever little hope one might have in their heart, will soon be lost. How do you define a religion which is supposed to be pious, but is being polluted by the fanaticisms of its own followers? What is the fault of those little innocent girls, who are supposed to play with dolls, but are brainwashed into wearing suicide bomber jackets? The meaning of ‘Allahu’ Akbar’ has been corroded by such ruthless, so called ‘jihadis’ who are not only taking innocent lives, but are ruining their own lineage in the process. This is a dark phase in human history, and one can only pray that those girls got into the ‘heaven’ that they were promised. May God bless humanity.
