  1. Advertising is a tricky territory. There are good ads and there are bad ads, and then there are ads that have no business being made. This particular ad is one such abomination, that is precisely the kind of creation that makes people wonder out loud: "What were they smoking?!" Before we get into the analysis bit, let's take a look at this ad from 2008 that features Sanjay Dutt. (Not that analyzing it would be required, just taking a look at it once will fill you up with rage.) View this post on Instagram He starts off with an appeal to unite against a 'new dushman' in our lives, and then dives headfirst into a rant right after, that can surely contest, and also come out as the uncontested winner, in the history of stupid rants. via GIPHY We don't want to transcribe this horrendous script, but surely do want to analyse a few points - and leave something to ponder upon, for the makers AND for Sanjay Dutt himself. Yes, we know he's 'just the talent' and all that, but he must have willingly signed the project? And since he managed such a 'heartfelt' narration, is there way in hell he was not on board with the message being conveyed? via GIPHY He says the problem these days is men keeping long hair, waxed legs, and shaved chests. Umm, did irony just get run over by a truck here? For someone who has sported ALL of these things in 80% of his movies, this is tough talk. Also, if we take the high road and move away from 'getting personal' (not that they extended the courtesy to the male population of the entire country), what the hell is wrong with long hair and waxed legs and shaved chests? via GIPHY The gentleman then moves on to attack men 'who spend more time in beauty parlours rather than in gyms where they belong' and are interested in activities such as cooking and taking care of babies. Seriously? Cooking and taking care of your own child makes someone 'unmanly'? How UTTERLY insecure and an absolute bigot does one have to be to endorse such views? via GIPHY He then goes on to vilify men who use cosmetics and calls them, (wait for it): BEHENJIS. Now we don't know where to start and what all is wrong with the above: the fact that he's insulting men for just being themselves, or women by using 'behenji' as a slur. via GIPHY And then, get this, he goes on to say that bright colours like pink, purple, and mauve are feminine. "tHeY aRe nOt mAnLy, tHeY aRe gIrLy!" - he says. Really? All the purple shirts he wore as a 'macho AF' hero in films with questionable scripts from the '80s and '90s have taken offence. Also, didn't he wear a flaming orange shirt for almost 80% of his screen time in Munnabhai MBBS? via GIPHY He even has a problem with men cooking Thai food and dancing Salsa. Apparently Bhangra is manlier than Salsa. via GIPHY He even manages to assign a sexist narrative to dog breeds. Men should always keep Bulldogs and Labradors as pets, instead of Pomeranians and Poodles - he says with utmost confidence. Finally, as we come *this* close to tearing our own hair out while trying to decipher the point of this drivel, he gives one final warning against pink cocktails and 'sissy' beers, before coming to the point and endorsing that particular beverage. Oof! via GIPHY On a serious note, this utterly pointless pressure on men to stick to certain things because they are 'manly' makes no sense whatsoever, and has pushed many innocent children and young men to drive themselves to suicide or lasting mental trauma. We're thankful that slowly we're learning how to do better, but we must remember that there was a time not so long ago, when it was okay to talk like this in broad daylight, with pride. Let us all hope that the worst is behind us, and move ahead with the learnings from our blunders. View the full article
  2. Mother nature had a message for the residents of Mumbai city today, "What's mine is yours". © Twitter The onset of Cyclone Tauktae, considered to be the most powerful storm to batter the west coast in two decades, has been catastrophic as it has taken the lives of around 35 people, displaced many, while also uprooting hundreds of trees and damaging properties in the process. © Free Press Journal However, the storm also acted as a means of passing a moral to Mumbaikers, reminding them of the amount of trash thrown into the sea on a regular basis. With sea levels rising due to the cyclone, heaps of trash were passed back onto the shores and beaches of Mumbai, showcasing exactly how much garbage is actually thrown into the sea. Massive piles of garbage could be seen in several locations of the city that included major tourist places like the Gateway of India and Marine Drive. #CycloneTauktae | Wave of trash washes up at #LoveGrove pumping station in Worli.

  3. From the title to the trailer, Akshay Kumar’s Laxmii has been in troubled waters for all the wrong reasons. People have also raised objections over the stereotypical represention of the transgender community. The movie centres around his character getting possessed by the ghost of a transgender person. And now, critics have already announced their verdict and they are calling it trash. Even people have flooded Twitter with reactions bashing the movie left, right, and center. Here are five reasons why people are bashing Laxmii after watching it: 1. It is a Hindi remake of the Tamil film Kanchana (2011) and people found the original one better than Akshay Kumar’s movie. I think kanchana is the best movie as compare to the Laxmii movie. Here People don't like laxmii movie because its a copy paste movie. We want new story from bollywood. #LaxmiiReview — Nagendra Mahato (@Nagendr85475983) November 10, 2020 2. People found the movie to be anti-Hindu and had nothing to offer in terms of entertainment. #LaxmiiReview Entertainment= 0 Himduo ko Seculrism ka gyan= 100% Muslim acche hote hai= 100% One word Review= Totally AntiHindu , not expected from akshay kumar pic.twitter.com/lMiMDpSpGC — Maj. GD Bakshi (@rahul_ranjan786) November 10, 2020 3. People have also pointed out that the movie follows a misandrist approach. They have also said it spreads the wrong message that all men are wrong. #Laxmii #LaxmiiReview 1. This movie is misandrist approach - Some men can be bad but not all. 2. Hinduphobic - Where Hindus are the worst part of society 3. Kiara and Akshay looks more kind of Baap Beti than husband wife 4. No humour 5. Villian wearing Shoes in Maa's temple pic.twitter.com/lszm0d0UKh — Amit Joshi (@unleashedamit) November 10, 2020 4. People have also called it the worst movie of the year 2020. The worst film of 2020, aur kuch dekhna baki reh gaya hain #LaxmiiReview Pathetic ! #Laxmii — Sandeep j (@sarcasmsemarege) November 10, 2020 5. People have also pointed out that the story concept is not clear. They don't seem too impressed by Akshay's performance either and are calling it one of his worst work. #LaxmiiReview is very bad. It is a huge investment, but 1 star rated movie. 1. Do not gave a proper story. 2. Against majority community in Bharat 3. Concept is not clear 4. Acting is not up to mark 5. One of the worst movie I have ever seen casting Akshay ji — Sanjay Kumar Das (@sanjaykdas01) November 10, 2020 Memes about the movie are doing the rounds of the internet now and some of these might crack you up. People after watching Akshay Kumar's #LaxmiiBomb.#LaxmiiReview #LaxmiiStreamingToday #LaxmiiStreamingNow pic.twitter.com/n3y5INYt87 — Farooq Khurram (@FarooqKhurram1) November 10, 2020Me,a fan of Hera pheri,phir hera pheri,de dana dan watching this movie falling in comedy section #LaxmiiReview pic.twitter.com/jhz2bfGQ59 — Deepash Shukla (@sab_mein_expert) November 10, 2020#LaxmiiReview pic.twitter.com/SVBCwxDD9I — ANKIT SINGH JACKMAN 🇮🇳 (श्री राम )🇮🇳 (@Singhjackman) November 10, 2020Akki kumar after watching reviews and public reaction #LaxmiiReview pic.twitter.com/YkTtUkvWZ4 — त्रिभुवन (@Dabang_0) November 10, 2020The film is the Hindi remake of the Tamil film Kanchana directed by Raghava Lawrence. The film stars Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani in the lead roles. Have you seen it yet? Let us know in the comments below. View the full article
  4. On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your awareness of the privileges you enjoy? Because let’s face it, our generation is so sold on the ‘face value’ of things, we have been completely ignorant towards the real things that matter. For instance, taking care of our surroundings and doing the bare minimum expected of educated, civilised people to protect the environment that rests at the very root of our existence. But unfortunately, that seems like a lot to ask for because time and again we prove that we really ‘don’t give a sh*t’. © Pexels Pretty much like the two youngsters who were forced to travel 80km to Coorg (Kodagu) so that they could own up to their misplaced sense of entitlement and clean up the garbage they had thrown out of their car while travelling through the highway. Here’s what happened. The General Secretary of Kodagu Tourism Association was travelling on the highway when he found some pizza boxes conveniently discarded on the side of the road. On checking, he chanced upon the bill inside one of the boxes, which carried the contact details of the person who had made the order. The General Secretary called on the number and requested the person to return to the spot and clean the litter. © Twitter/cabterburycc However, the person on the phone simply apologised but refused to do the needful citing he had crossed Coorg already. It was then that the defaulter’s number was shared with the local police as well as uploaded on social media. After receiving a number of calls, the youngsters were ‘forced’ to turn around and drive back 80km to come pick up the boxes. Serves them right, and Twitteratis agree too. These are urban fellows going on weekend joy rides to pristine places and wrecking them too. Good this shaming worked. Civic sense is zero in the urban so called educated fellows who can pay 500 rupees for a pizza but have no sense to dispose of their own trash properly. — Lalita Pulavarti (@Lalita_Pulavart) November 2, 2020Awesome... These kind of strict enforcements will raise the needed awareness. People who create such mess and are just bothered about themselves and do not care for a better society. — Ranganath Sadasiva (@rangu_s) November 2, 2020good job guys, its a sense of pride one should hold to his responsibilites & take care of mother nature not just disturb or throw things !!! — Sreekanth (@Shreikrvce) November 2, 2020Brilliant! — Nishant Nair (@imNishantPNair) November 2, 2020 People want similar measures to be implemented elsewhere too. Seriously?? Finally, someone tell them to do the same to the idiots in Bangalore. — Truth Liberates (సత్యమేవ ముక్తి: ) (@dtruthliberates) November 3, 2020Authorities should look on the Aghara lake surrounding Roads in Bangalore ... u will find many such packages, chicken waste , rotten vegetables, especially garbage thrown by hawkers and small-time vendors... people will just dump and drive in flash of the moment . — hydsafrun (@hydsafrun) November 3, 2020Do this for everybody and keep bins everywhere and follow strictly. Then it is worth. Just catching a few and removing vengeance and then leaving the other places dirty is no use — suresh (@suresh90488447) November 2, 2020 What are your thoughts on the matter?

  5. Throwing away garbage is part of daily chores for us. But wait! What if you accidentally throw away money with the garbage? Well then, not all of us would get as lucky as this British couple. In a bizzare incident, according to a report in Daily Hunt, a couple threw away Rs.14 Lakh in the garbage and luckily, it ended up at a recycling centre. The couple from England's Burnham-on-Sea "unknowingly" threw away that amount which was hidden by a deceased relative. © BCCL The couple, as per the reports, were cleaning the house of a deceased relative and had taken a bunch of boxes to the recycling centre. A worker at the recycling centre was checking the boxes for an electric cable when he stumbled upon the money. Subequently, he called the Avon and Somerset Police and alerted them about the same without taking any money for himself. Cops, suggest reports, checked the CCTV footage and further identified the car in which the boxes were dropped. Then with the help of the car's registration number the cops found the couple's home address. The couple informed the cops that their dead relative was in a habit of hiding money in different places around the house. However, they weren't expecting it to be in a box full of junk. Later the cash was handed over to the couple and the police department took to Facebook to thank the honest staff member. They wrote, “We would like to say a big thank you to the staff at the recycling center. Without their diligent attitude, integrity, and assistance, the family would never have known about the money found, and we would not have been able to return it to them, especially in time for Christmas". It's for such honest people like this staff that the world is still a better place to live. View the full article
  6. Waste management is an issue of grave concern, not just in India but all over the world. Just the other day, I overheard someone call plastic the most fascinating, and yet the least destructive element ever to be found. It's produced in plenty and is not biodegradable, making it trash that'll always sit on the earth's floor, probably forever. Not just plastic, different non-biodegradable metals also pose a threat to waste management issues around the world. Our ocean beds are filling up with an innumerable amount of trash each day and while we sit and celebrate the next few steps to curb the problem, we have amidst us an artist who's already doing something relatably terrific. © CNBC 'Big Trash Animals' by Artur Bordalo is a series of artwork that aims to draw attention towards the waste management issue we're facing in the world today. His work focuses on the general lack of recycling single use plastic and metal items, which are found at landfills around the cities he works in, and creates some excellent animal sculptures from it. They stand out as installations in the shape of different animals, telling the world that we need to adopt healthy habits of disposing our waste intelligently, before it caves in and becomes a larger issue than it already is. The Portuguese artist has set up a range of his work in the USA, Estonia and Tahiti. His work phenomenally symbolises both the beauty of nature and the waste material that are a constant threat to it, everyday. Here are 20 of his sculptures, made from waste materials, across different cities. © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo © Artur-Bordalo Maybe we can think of something as innovative to solve waste management issues in our country and take the load off of the overflowing landfills.

  7. Plastic has become the topic of discussion around the world as it's the most polluting component found on earth currently. Rationally so, the world has become more conscious of the adverse effects of it and working towards its complete demise is all we should be thinking of. While economies are rising and falling, creating a cause for concern every now and then, we have a bigger cause right in front of us that we need to pay heed to and progress towards tackling that cause. (c)The Independant While plastic is found everywhere, one place we wouldn't expect it to be would be our water bodies. Unfortunately, our oceans and rivers are filled with plastic remains which are a great hazard for the existing aquatic lives. Recently, a small sized sea turtle was found dead with 104 pieces of plastic in its body. That's the fate of our marine life and while we urge people to dispose their plastic waste off a little more consciously, there's an organisation which has taken a step forward and is doing its bit to preserve our oceans from getting polluted further. (c)Youtube The Ocean Cleanup is an organisation that has taken the initiative to clean up the oceans. Started by a Dutch inventor, Boyan Slat at the age of 18, The Ocean Cleanup has implemented a very efficient mechanism to clean up the oceans and rivers, without taking much time. They don't use conventional vessels and nets for the cleanup but in fact rely on buoyancy to go ahead with the clean up drive. "The system consists of a long floater that sits at the surface of the water and skirt that hangs beneath it. The floater provides buoyancy to the entire system, while the skirt prevents debris from escaping underneath and leads it into the retention system, or cod end. A cork line above the skirt prevents overtopping and keeps the skirt afloat," as stated on their website. (c)The Ocean Cleanup The organisation has now recently developed a foolproof system to clean up the river, with 'the Interceptor'. On an average, 2.4 million metric tonnes of plastic flows through the rivers, according to reports, and most of it come from cities and villages. In India, people use the river for multiple purposes, including disposing off their waste. The waste found in the ocean comes mainly through the river and if there's a viable solution to prevent plastic from polluting the rivers, the marine life could be saved. The Ocean Cleanup's aim is to tackle plastic in 1000 rivers by 2025, as per the reports. The Interceptor is installed to the river beds, away from the passing boats. The mechanism involves a large barrier that blocks floating plastic pieces in the river. All the plastic trapped by the barrier is later sent to waste management. If in case, some trash is missed by the barrier, another system helps rectify that. After a thorough clean up, the trash travels through a conveyor belt, before it's segregated further for disposal. The system is powered by solar energy. (c)The Ocean Cleanup "When we think about solutions, we obviously need to think holistically. First and foremost, we need to move all the way upstream and reduce consumption and production of single-use, unnecessary plastics, and we need to better collect and recycle plastics and ensure materials are getting back into the supply chain for a circular economy. But then for the materials that are still escaping and currently not making their way in that system, the last line of defence is cleanup," said Nick Malos, a senior director of the Trash Free Seas programme at The Oceans Cleanup. (c)The Ocean Cleanup Of course we desperately need this mechanism to come to India and help clean our river beds as well. The amount of plastic trash found in some of our major rivers seriously amounts to a deadly cost for our marine lives, in the long run. While beach cleanup drives are a good initiation, a more rigid and impactful clean up system needs to be installed and it's time we economise on environmental causes wisely and have this very efficient environmental non-profit working with our water bodies too.

  8. After some rather disturbing and bizarre online challenges like the 'Momo Challenge, 'Kiki Challenge' or even the 'Tide-Pod' Challenge, we finally have a challenge that makes a lot of sense and is good for the world! The '#Trashtag Challenge' initiates a good Samaritan scenario and it's catching up quite steadfastly. © Instagram The challenge includes taking photos of dirty spaces/areas and then cleaning the entire area up and photographing the clean spot again. The ultimate goal is to post a 'before' and 'after' shot of a once dirty area to an absolutely spotless one, which will pose as an example of great civic sense. The psychology behind such challenges is that it follows a herd mentality. If an open platform such as social media is used to post such challenges, 90% of the time, chances are people are going to follow through and ape a particular trending act. So, needless to say, the #Trashtag Challenge has proven to be rather successful and people in a lot of countries are posting pictures of areas they have cleaned, on the internet. The challenge has somewhat made its way through India but not as aggressively as we had hoped. Currently, only Bangalore and Nagaland have seen this trend unfold. We do wish it comes to other states soon enough because dozens of places need that kind of intervention in this country, since the 'Swach Bharat Mission' has taken its own sweet time to deliver. © Twitter The #Trashtag Challenge has been around for a while now. It was first promoted by a company back in 2015 but it was revisited again this year with this initiative post on Instagram: Double TAP for more amazing facts&quotes ð . -ð¥ TAG a friend to show thisð¡ -ðTURN ON POST NOTIFICATION -âFOLLOW for more... - . . . . . #fact #facts #didyouknow #instafacts #factsdaily #trashtag #dailyfacts #factsð¯ #factz A post shared by TheScientistð (@thescientistfacts) on Mar 10, 2019 at 8:54am PDT Twitter, Reddit and Instagram users all around the world have willfully taken up the challenge and are producing some rather amazing transformational results, with cleaning up garbage-stacked areas around them.

  9. Who said social initiatives and a good round of tipples cannot go hand-in-hand? Social initiatives work to make our surroundings better, whereas booze makes everything...erm...better! Period. Imagine all the possibilities we could explore if these two aspects came together and the end result was a win-win situation for us all? That would be a living dream and seems like someone's already decided to look into this and turn it into reality! A beach bar in Goa has come up with the perfect plan to get people to take care of the busy beaches which are corrupted by the callousness of the umpteen visitors, who stop by on a daily basis and leave the place littered. © Instagram According to a report by The Weather Channel India, 'Waste Bar' offers free beer in exchange for the waste collected from the beaches. The aim is to make people aware and accountable for their surroundings. The campaign was started by Noreen van Holstein in collaboration with Drishti Marine, a private beach management agency that also works with Goa tourism to provide damage control to the situation. The initiative was kick-started on 30th January at the Zanzibar shack located in the Baga village. Apart from all the good you do to the environment by participating in this initiative, it also allows you to get around the Rs. 2,000 drinking fine by collecting 10 beer bottle caps or 20 cigarette butts or 5 plastic straws. This waste-bar in Goa is a hang out of sorts, where one can exchange segregated garbage for a free beer.

Such initiatives had already been tried and tested in the Netherlands, and the world has picked up on the idea over the years. She said, “People come to Goa for two things: beach and the bar. So let's give them what they come for – free drinks in exchange for garbage that they collect. This ensures that they become conscious of the waste that is there on the beach and that trash actually has value! They will leave Goa with a positive feeling and a clean beach.” Other beaches around Goa are also set to pick up the concept in the upcoming months, but Twitter already has a lot of good stuff to say about it. This idea has great potential. Should be applied beyond beaches and beyond Goa. @MCGM_BMC — Niks29 (@Niks292) February 4, 2019 Now that's something India really needs to learn and should be proud of. #Goa — Avani Shah (@avani_16) February 4, 2019 Tks, waste-bar. Good luckð I truly hope that this exercise spreads message of cleanliness and hygiene among all the visitors in Goa. May all of us learn to become responsible & self-disciplined citizens. Keep beaches clean & prevent trash from going into the beach....ð#Goa — Vandana (@CharouRathore) February 4, 2019 We hope to see some great changes in Goa, courtesy the Waste Bar.

  13. Lurking in the shadows of their more consistent and effective neighbours City, Manchester United did manage to prove their mettle and repaid the faith of their fans when they defeated Liverpool over the weekend. But, their happiness was sadly shortlived. If Marouane Fellaini's abhorrent 'Mickey Mouse' hairdo made them a victim of social media trolls, Man Utd further attracted immense criticism after their elimination from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Sevilla - a team placed fifth in La Liga with a goal difference of minus six and the one that could only manage two wins in their six Champions League group games. Following a goalless draw in the first-leg in Seville, United found themselves staring down the barrel because of the away goal rule. The Red Devils knew that if Sevilla scored they would need two, something the EPL giants had not managed against the Spanish opposition since 2003 (home or away) in the European competition. Despite beginning the game with a good tempo, the inability of the home side to slow the contest down and retain possession was telling. As Sevilla settled pretty quickly in the first-half, United looked a bit lackadaisical passing out from the back. Such was Sevilla's pressing, that United was forced to look long each time they got the ball. Reuters The absence of injured Paul Pogba was evident as neither Nemanja Matic, nor Fellaini came close to controlling the contest. And, the fact that Mourinho's men could force just one save from the opposition goalkeeper pretty much summed up their sorry state of affairs in the first 45 minutes. At the half-time, fans must have been hoping for a Fergie-esque 'hair-dryer treatment' for United stars from Mourinho, whose piece of mind had inspired them to overcome Crystal Palace in the Premier League recently. While we don't know what the United manager told his players in the dressing room, but it clearly didn't change their performance in the second-half. A sloppy first-half was followed by more frustration for the hosts as Sevilla kept knocking on their door. Minutes into the second-half, Joaquin Correa came close to putting his side in front when he found some space in front of David De Gea. But, as he went on to shoot, Eric Bailly swooped and made a crucial tackle to clear the danger. Marcus Rashford, whose brace over the weekend shut Liverpool, was next to cede the ball cheaply and, just like that, United - who were marching forward in a bid to score - found themselves backtracking to avoid a potential threat from Sevilla's Luis Muriel who eventually rolled the ball wide of the left post. Reuters United's problem was as obvious as their inability to solve it: a lack of composure despite Mourinho having the interval to put this right. And, soon, the contest was bypassing United's midfield in the hope that Romelu Lukaku or Fellaini could make something happen from a hail Mary dropping on them from their box. After seeing enough of mediocracy, Mourinho sent on Pogba and withdrew Fellaini on the hour. But, while United did manage to improve on the possession, it was Sevilla who reaped the benefits at the other end. Raring to beat De Gea, the visitors finally found the back of the net in the 74th minute through their 'Super Sub' Wissam Ben Yedder who scored in just 87 seconds - fastest goal by a substitute in Champions League this season. With two goals becoming the need of the hour for United, Ben Yedder struck again in the 77th minute to put the hosts out of their misery. Feeding on Correa's cross, the 27-year-old, despite a weak header, once again got his name on the scoresheet in a span of just three minutes. Thanks to his second strike, Ben Yedder is now the second-highest goal-scorer behind Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League this season. Five of his eight UCL goals have come against English clubs this season. In fact, he was Sevilla's savior in the autumn, scoring three against Liverpool across their two drawn group ties. Reuters For United, opportunities kept coming but the hosts just couldn't grab them. Chris Smalling was presented with the perfect chance to cut the deficit in the 80th minute, when all he needed was just some contact to beat Sergio Rico on Rashford's free-kick. But, it seems that Smalling was probably distracted by Ashley Young's Instagram post trolling Mohamed Salah. The goal finally came for the home side through Lukaku in the 84th minute, but the fact that there wasn't even a roar from the emptying Old Trafford reflects how bad Mourinho's men had been that night. There was no fluency, no pace and, definitely, no ambition from the Red Devils. It's safe to say that the hosts were second-best in all the departments of the game. Theirs was a wretched performance, a calamity for United, and one of the worst nights in their long European history. After progressing from the Round of 16 in five successive seasons, United have now been eliminated at this stage in two of their last three Champions League campaigns. And, the fact that Sevilla attempted 21 shots in the game - the most by any team at Old Trafford since March 2013 - sums up their forgetful night. Reuters And, if their performance wasn't enough to rile up the fans, Mourinho's comments after the game highlighted that maybe it was time for the Red Devils to find a new manager, because the Portuguese were definitely not the 'Special One' that night. "It is not something new for the club. I don't think the performance was bad, I think the intention and the way we started was really good and positive," he said. Clearly, Mourinho was talking about some other team or probably another match because United fans and the hallowed Old Trafford doesn't deserve a performance like that. And, for a club of United's might that allowed Mourinho to spend 300 million pounds in his two seasons, failing to reach the Champions League last eight is just unacceptable. Mourinho's failure to guide his team into the quarter-finals is further compounded by how the maligned David Moyes did take United through to the last eight four years ago. And, this dismal defeat that had Old Trafford emptying before the final whistle means United can realistically now claim only the FA Cup - a consolation that might help Mourinho save his job, but cannot justify the team's growing incompetence.
  14. The world knows John Cena as a talented actor and one of the greatest WWE stars of all time. But, not many people know that he also a great tutor, who can teach you things that nobody else knows about or has ever tried. Like how to play baseball with a cricket bat! © twitter While Cena turned out to be a good teacher, it was his student Hugh Jackman who stole the show like a true boss. Yes, the powerful action stars of reel and real life came together on 'The Late Show With James Corden' and brought the whole house down with their badass charm. Anger and compliments do not go hand in hand, but Cena taught Jackman how say some of the nicest things, in an aggressive manner. While we all have heard about and indulged in trash talking, the trick that Cena showed is called 'reverse trash talking'. Sounds fancy, eh? © 20th century fox But soon enough, Jackman learnt the trick and complimented Cena (with all the rage and anger intact), and proved that no one can mess with Wolverine. He said, “Is that it, John Cena, is that it? With your blue eyes, and your perfect hair, and your beautiful three-piece suit, your fashionable, expensive, three-piece suit!” He went on to say, “You look amazing, John Cena, you understand me? You are amazing!” © CBS While, the audience burst out in cheers, John Cena and James Corden were left shell-shocked and amazed after Jackman was done talking. Honestly, Jackman sounded like a Delhi boy who lives in Lucknow, but can't let go off his 'Dilli se hoon' attitude. It all started when Corden asked Cena about his talent to reverse trash talk and he showed the world how it's actually done. In fact, after Jackman was done with his gig, all that Cena could say was “He's ready!” Well, we agree with you Cena, just unleash Jackman in front of your opponents already. And with this gig, the best student of year award definitely goes to Jackman for complimenting the crap out of Cena. Hugh Jackman is one versatile actor, whose talent knows no boundaries. After blowing our minds away with movies like 'Logan', 'The Wolverine', 'X-Men' series, 'Prisoners' and 'Les Misérables'; Jackman is back with yet another stellar movie 'The Greatest Showman'. © 20th century fox It is a biopic based on P.T. Barnum, founder of legendary Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. The movie also stars Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Zendaya and Rebecca Ferguson. In fact, it is for the first time ever that a live trailer was aired for a movie.
  15. People walk on Zurich's main shopping street Bahnhofstrasse December 20, 2008. Photo: REUTERS ZURICH: Investigators in Zurich, ranked among the world?s cleanest cities, are probing alleged grubby dealings within the municipal garbage and recycling department. While trash services in the United States and Italy have sometimes been linked with illicit dealings, the Swiss financial centre appears an unlikely source of muck. Rubbish bins are ubiquitous, and a fleet of motorised street sweepers keeps boulevards nearly spotless. But so far Zurich has unearthed irregular accounting surrounding some $15 million in cost overruns on one of its marquee projects, possible nepotism and an alleged off-the-books slush fund, according to a series of reports released last week. ?The garbage and recycling department in Zurich developed into a state within a state,? Filippo Leutenegger, a city council member who has overseen the Sanitation and Recycling office since 2014, told state broadcaster SRF. ?We cannot allow that to happen,? he added, rejecting criticism he failed to act quickly enough to halt the problems. The department?s chief, Urs Pauli, was fired in June after revelations he was driving a taxpayer-funded BMW sedan worth more than $100,000 and after a so-called ?secret stash? of 215,000 Swiss francs ($226,500) was uncovered in his offices. The city prosecutor?s office seized the cash, which Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger has reported resulted from selling used department vehicles and was used to reward employees for good performance. ?SWEEPING COVER-UP? According to the city?s reports, the garbage department hid 15 million Swiss francs in cost overruns on a logistics centre, including by booking them to unrelated accounts in a ?sweeping cover-up.? A whistleblower alerted authorities in 2015, accusing Pauli?s department of neglecting proper documentation as well as irregularities in no-bid construction contracts involving firms with close ties to trash department officials. ?Awarding contracts without seeking bids or ensuring transparency can prompt questions about compliance when the same contractors are always chosen,? according to the city reports. ?It creates fertile ground for accusations of favouritism.? Earlier this year, Leutenegger filed a criminal complaint with city prosecutors, alleging Pauli, who had led the department since 2008, had broken the law by bypassing formal approval for his BMW. Zurich prosecutors did not immediately respond to questions on Tuesday about their investigation?s status. Nobody has been charged. Pauli, who has denied wrongdoing, declined to comment this week through his attorney.
  16. It’s not every day that you come across stories that inspire not just one person, but an entire nation. This is one such story. It’s not a story about one person as much as it’s a story about an entire initiative pulled off by this one person, who somehow, managed to involve the masses to follow in his footsteps. Indiatimes Afroz Shah, a Mumbai-based lawyer by profession, started something back in 2015. He reached out to as many Mumbai locals and celebrities as he could to involve them in a greater mission—one of cleanliness. The mission was a cleanup drive. The target was Mumbai’s infamous Versova beach. Infamous, because 85 weeks ago, the beach was a garbage dump with over 5 million kilos of trash piled up on the shores. It was easily India’s very own Henderson Island—the most polluted island in the world. Indiatimes But, one man, Afroz Shah decided to turn things around. The cleanup drive was then, organized by Versova Residents Volunteers (VRV) and the cause was graced by the Representatives from the United Nations (UN), as well as by respected maritime lawyer and campaigner for clean oceans, Lewis Pugh, who was also the United Nations Environment Programme’s Patron of the Oceans. And what started 85 weeks ago, courtesy of one man, became an effort for the entire city. Indiatimes 85 weeks later, the Versova Beach, in Mumbai doesn’t look like a garbage dump anymore. It looks like a real beach. Afroz Shah even went on to Twitter to share an image showing the difference in the beach after the initiative. Here’s what he said: This is versova beach an hour back. Week 85 of cleanup.Versova beach is gorgeous and clean now.we have done our bit.We need to maintain it. pic.twitter.com/98q9RD5aAg — Afroz Shah (@AfrozShah1) May 20, 2017 And soon, he had applause and praise coming in from the film industry, as well. Randeep Hooda even went on to call Afroz a hero without makeup—a befitting phrase. Wow.. never seen #Versova beach so clean.. kudos to @AfrozShah1 and team of volunteers #HeroesWithoutMakeup 👏👏👏#SaveOurOceans #SaveThePlanet https://t.co/5mrpTRDD4l — Randeep Hooda (@RandeepHooda) May 20, 2017 @narendramodi Mr Prime Minister it is people like @AfrozShah1 who are actually making Swach Bharat a reality! He needs your commendation. https://t.co/oqXwpW6Ud9 — SUHEL SETH (@suhelseth) May 20, 2017 While there are those who wield the broom only for the paparazzi to promote a nation-wide campaign, under the name of Swach Bharat, there are also those who believe in taking initiative, not promoting it and doing more than talking. Afroz Shah is one of those and he can single-handedly teach many influencers in the country a lesson in inspiration. Indiatimes We talk about how the planet is getting increasingly polluted with each passing day. We talk about how the glaciers are melting, the water beds are drying out and how the Earth is dying. But, we can change this. In fact, we happen to be the first generation to have witnessed the direct repercussions of climate change and also the last generation who will be able to do anything about it. Don’t take that to be a daunting fact of the matter. Take it, instead to mean that it is the single most hopeful outcome we have in front of us with the actual ability to do something about it. So, let’s do that. Let’s be more like Afroz Shah.
  17. KARACHI: Sindh Solid Waste Management Board said on Saturday in a statement that new cleaning machinery from China has arrived to help clean up the trash heaps lining the provincial metropolis. Sindh minister for local government Jam Khan Shoro said mechanical sweepers will be used to clean dirt and garbage from the city’s roads. The board is currently carrying out a clean-up in District South and work in the District East will be started soon, he added. The minister said that keeping Sindh clean is part of the Pakistan Peoples Party leadership’s vision. Earlier, in February, a similar batch of machines had arrived in the city. These vehicles are capable of lifting up to 10 tonnes of trash. The trash was to be first picked up from each and every house and then be taken to garbage transfer stations from where it was to be sent to landfill sites.
  18. For all you ‘throwing-waste-on-the-street’ peeps, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has some serious news. Considering that garbage is a serious pollutant in our country, the NGT has announced a fine of Rs. 10,000 for people littering in public places. What’s more, the panel also said that the authorities are under “statutory” obligation to make sure that the waste is “collected, transported and disposed” of in accordance with the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016. BREAKING: Now Pay Rs 10,000 As Fine For Throwing Waste In Public Places: NGT pic.twitter.com/P9SDY7wQ14 — Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) December 19, 2016 A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said, “Any such body, person, hotels, residents, slaughter houses, vegetable markets, etc. which does not comply with the directions or throw their waste over any drain or public place shall be liable to pay environmental compensation at the rate of Rs. 10, 000 per default.” © Flickr Miran Rijavec Just in case you are wondering how much is too much in terms of throwing waste, it was noted by the Tribunal that Delhi generates 9,600 metric tonnes of municipal solid waste per day, so just imagine the state of the entire nation. “It should be kept in mind that as per polluter pays principle, each person would be liable to pay for causing pollution, if the waste is generated. It is the duty of a citizen to ensure that said waste is handled properly and not to cause any pollution or cause inconvenience to other persons. The entire burden cannot be shifted on the state and authorities,” the bench added.
