Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali Quit Pakistan's Team WhatsApp Group After Contract Snub From PCB

The Pakistani cricketers have been the topic of great discussion this month. Babar Azam's recent ascension to One-Day International (ODI) captaincy for Pakistan was met with much appreciation from cricket fans. And then, Shahid Afridi grabbed all the limelight for his objectionable and insensitive comments during his recent visit to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). Now, fast-bowling stars Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali have thronged the headlines for reportedly quitting from Pakistan's official team WhatsApp group in what is believed to be a show of protest for their central contract snub at the hands of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Last week, the PCB had announced the 2020-21 central contract list for their men's cricket team. The 18-member list showed the likes of Azhar Ali, Babar Azam and Shaheen Shah Afridi bagging a Category A contract, while the contracts of veteran stars like Sarfaraz Ahmed and Yasir Shah were demoted to Category B as per the 2020-21 list. â Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir have lost their PCB central contracts

ð» Sarfaraz Ahmed has been demoted from category A to B

https://t.co/y0NV0UyMVy pic.twitter.com/sMMd96qdG4 â ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) May 13, 2020 The inclusion of two new faces, Naseem Shah and Iftikhar Ahmad, was quite noticeable, but the exclusion of Pakistan's vital fast-bowling trio of Hasan Ali, Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz did raise a few eyebrows. "The philosophy and criteria for this merit-based central contract list was simple and straightforward: the selectors reviewed player performances in the past 12 months and then looked ahead to our team requirements in the forthcoming 12 months," chief selector and head coach Misbah-ul-Haq said in PCB's official press release. Pakistan national menâs teamâs head coach and chief selector @captainmisbahpk held a videoconference with the local media shortly after the announcement of the new menâs central contracts for the 2020-21 season.

However, Amir and Wahab are senior and experienced bowlers and they remain in contention as we believe they can still contribute to the Pakistan menâs cricket team and also mentor our young battery of fast bowlers," he added. However, it appears that Amir and Ali aren't really happy about the PCB's decision to exclude them from their central contracts list. According to the Cricket Pakistan report, the pace trio is "extremely unhappy" after being denied central contracts, but are refraining from expressing their displeasure in public.

Locked Down In Spain, Indian TT Star Missed Brother�s Last Rites & It Keeps Getting Worse

The scare of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is at an all time high and even though the world is taking all necessary precautions, the number of positive cases continue to rise. Countries are under lockdown, nobody can pass the border and while these measures are for the betterment of humanity, stories like that of Indian table tennis player Takeme Sarkar can make you want to break them. The Siliguri athlete wished to get better in her sport and left for Spain in the last week of February to do just that. Motivated and driven to return home a stronger and more confident player, she bid adieu to her mother, father and little brother and got on her way to the airport. Little did she know that this move would not only keep her away from her family for an indefinite period of time but also take away the opportunity to say goodbye to her sibling for the last time. With Spain taking a big hit from the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease in the last couple of months, the entire state was under severe lockdown. As a result Sarkar couldnât attend her brotherâs last rites, who lost his life in a road accident. In an interview with The Times of India Sarkar spoke at length about her situation away from home and her parentsâ condition back in Siliguri. Visa expired, lost brother in accident: Paddler #TakemeSarkar stuck in Spain due to #lockdown#CoronavirusOutbreak #CoronavirusPandemic #Covid19 pic.twitter.com/ms0cJu43Uk â The Times Of India (@timesofindia) May 18, 2020 âMy family is waiting for me back home in Siliguri. They are also in a terrible condition. I lost my younger brother in a road accident on March 23. I am shattered from inside. I am really worried about my family. I cried day and night after getting the news. Wish I was there to see my brother one last time and support my parents. I will miss him all my life. It is difficult to spend a single day here. I am really upset,â she said. Currently holding India Rank 13, Takeme was supposed to leave for home on May 10, but not only did the very reason for her to go abroad, that is, train under professional paddlers for over a month remained unfinished, a big portion of her life in her little brother was taken away from her and she couldnât even mourn with her family in peace. The Indian Embassy and the Table Tennis Federation of India have got in touch with her and assured her of assistance but she says nobody has extended the helping hand. However, Takeme understands the situation in which the world already is and it is simply unfortunate that she is all alone and away from her loved ones at this juncture of her life.

�Better Than Djokovic', Nick Kyrgios Picks Andy Murray Over The Serb & The Rivalry Goes On

Nick Kyrgios is at it again! The Australian tennis star finally decided to have an Instagram Live chat with Andy Murray and the conversation went just as controversially as expected. Kyrgios who confessed of already having enjoyed six glasses of red wine before sitting in front of his phone for the chat, spoke about how he has started appreciating the beverage ever since the sports were cancelled and people from all over the world resorted to self-isolation. .@NickKyrgios talking to @andy_murray about teams vibing together at the Laver Cup pic.twitter.com/r1FloebTJJ â R. (@drivevolleys) May 16, 2020 "My knowledge and interest in red wine has gone incredibly up during this quarantine," said Kyrgios. However, the subject matter quickly changed to why the World Rank 40 talent believed Murray was better than World Rank 1 Novak Djokovic and of course it had something to do with the Aussie himself. Kyrgios has one of the best tennis IQs in the game.

And of course we already know his entertainment value

Some interesting analysis on Murray and Nadal returning his serves and stating that he believes Murray is better than Djokovic. #Tennis

pic.twitter.com/IRbyL8iENR â Lachlan McKirdy (@LMcKirdy7) May 16, 2020 Kyrgios claims that while the Serb âdodgesâ his serve, the Scot on the other hand âis on it like a lightâ and is therefore better than the 2019 Wimbledon champion.  "I think you should have one of the best careers ever. I think you are better than Djokovic. Djokovic was playing dodgeball on my serve and you were slapping it for a winner. He was trying to dodge it, you were on it like a light," said Kyrgios. A humble Murray laughed it off and responded by saying: "The results would suggest otherwise." © Reuters And in fact the Scot is right. Even though Andy Murray defeated Djokovic in the 2012 US Open clash and to lift the Wimbledon cup in 2013, his head-to-head record of 11-25 versus Nole is not that impressive. In terms of accomplishments as well, Murrayâs three singles Grand Slam titles seem to be minimised in front of Djokovicâs 17. 
Kyrgiosâ self-inflicted rivalries against some of the biggest names in the world including Djokovic and Spanish bull Rafael Nadal arenât new but it is amazing, almost commendable, how the notorious Australian manages to keep the animosity alive despite not being on the court with any of them for over three months now. Novak Djokovic, however, canât catch a break amid the quarantine phase and continues to be in the news despite no fault of his own. Last week, his mother while speaking to a Serbian publication said that she found former World No. 1. Roger Federer âa little arrogantâ. As a result Nole faced a lot of heat on social media. As far as Kyrgios is concerned, he has one thing that he can brag about, his 2-0 head-to-head record against the Serb and he looked good doing it too. But as great as Andy Murray is, he is not better than Djokovic; in fact, he is far from it.

Apple's iPhone 12 Series Details Have Already Leaked & We're Getting Some Major Upgrades This Year

Apple recently launched the new iPhone SE model that'll soon be available to buy as soon as the lockdown lifts. We're still months away from the iPhone 12 series, but there's a leak which seems to have confirmed a lot of interesting details about the upcoming iPhone series. So, let's take a look. The new leak about the iPhone 12 series is coming from a reliable source, but we still suggest you take them with a pinch of salt. Nothing can be confirmed until the launch date. Anyway, here's more info - Summary of iPhone 12 Display Specs pic.twitter.com/HaWSxuxMf3 â Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) May 18, 2020 First of all, it's worth pointing out we might get 4 new iPhone models in the iPhone 12 series. According to the leak, they're called iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max.  The iPhone 12 is said to feature a 5.4-inch display, whereas both the iPhone 12 Max and the iPhone 12 Pro are said to sport a 6.1-inch panel. The iPhone 12 Pro Max will be the biggest of the bunch with a 6.7-inch panel. The good news is that all the models will have OLED panels, unlike last year when the iPhone 11 got an LCD panel.  Rumour has it that only the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max's display will support the 120Hz refresh rate with 10-bit color depth. So if you want that super-smooth panel, then you may have to shell out a lot more money.

Hospital Bed That Turns Into Coffin To Fight Corona Supply Shortage Is The Dark Side Of Innovation

They say necessity is the mother of invention, but those are just words and phrases unless youâve witnessed the real deal.  A Bogota-based advertising firm has done exactly that by coming up with a rather gritty solution to deal with lack of hospital beds amid the Coronavirus outbreak. As scores of researchers and scientists continue to push through the days to bring new innovation to the forefront, this Colombian companyâs proposal to have beds which can be turned into makeshift coffins upon a patientâs death may seem a little sinister, but the makers also seem to have their hearts in the right place. A bed or a coffin? Why not both? #Colombian company builds biodegradable cardboard beds for #Bogota hospitals pic.twitter.com/B23hF7DHac â RT (@RT_com) May 7, 2020 Given the high-risk contagion that COVID-19 is, these beds designed by ABC Displays were made with an intention to keep medical staff and paramedics safe from contracting the infection from a dead patient. Made entirely of cardboard with metal railings for added strength, these beds can reportedly bear up to 150 kgs of weight and cost nearly Rs 6,000 a piece. θάναÏÎ¿Ï ÎºÎ±Î¹ καινοÏομία ÏÏα ÏÏÏνια ÏÎ¿Ï ÎºÎ¿Î²Î¹Î´

He saw families in Guayaquil wait for hours to get their hands on caskets for their dead family members, while others settled for cardboard boxes when they couldnât afford a wooden one. With the number of Coronavirus cases slowly rising in Colombia, Gomez now plans to donate 10 such beds to Colombiaâs Amazonas department where they have a shortage of supplies.

Seoul Football Club Uses 'Sex Dolls' To Fill Empty Stadium In One Of The Funniest Lockdown Games

Following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak across the globe, all sporting events were suspended in a bid to contain the fast-spreading disease. From Euro 2020, Copa America to Tokyo Olympics, all premier tournaments were postponed owing to the health scare posed by COVID-19. Apart from prominent tournaments, football, basketball and cricket leagues were also suspended. Amid the frustrating lockdown protocols, the football fans were elated to see the resumption of football action after Bundesliga resumed behind closed doors over the weekend, becoming the first major European football league to restart after the coronavirus shutdown. While the return of football surely gave fans something to cheer for, playing in empty stadiums has not only proved to be a challenge for players, but also for the clubs. Stalemate at the bottom

Wolfsburg leave it late #BundesligaMD26 pic.twitter.com/GJmX9D8rvB â Bundesliga English (@Bundesliga_EN) May 16, 2020 Though the move to play without fans is aimed at containing the COVID-19 spread, the football clubs have found it difficult to recreate the same fervour in empty stadiums. In a bid to compensate for the lack of fans, a football club tried to be a bit innovative recently. Earlier this month, K-League in South Korea became the first major football league to hold matches since the start of COVID-19, with their season's opener watched by a worldwide audience of fans starved of footballing action. But, FC Seoul's efforts to bring a touch of realism to their clash against Gwangju FC on May 17 backfired big time. 2016 K League winners FC Seoul inadvertently used sex dolls rather than fashion mannequins to help fill empty stands this weekend. The club has apologised. Both the club and the supplier are pointing fingers at others. (It's not just COVID-19 you need to avoid catching!) #kleague pic.twitter.com/59rSU8XxYL â Devon Rowcliffe (@WhoAteTheSquid) May 17, 2020 The Korean football club decided to use mannequins in the stands to make up for the lack of fanfare in the empty stadium. But, things went south after, out of the 30 mannequins (28 female and 2 male), some of them held signs advertising x-rated websites, despite pornography being banned in South Korea. The football fans on social media also noticed that the mannequins looked more like sex dolls. Some pointed out that several were holding posters carrying the name of the popular live streamer BJ Chaero â reportedly the physical inspiration for the dollsâ design â according to the Koreaboo website. View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@fcseoul) Amongst the backlash, the South Korean football club issued an apology, claiming that the mannequins had been ordered inadvertently after a "misunderstanding" with the supplier. "We would like to apologise to the fans. We are deeply sorry,â FC Seoul said in a statement on Instagram. "Our intention was to do something light-hearted in these difficult times. We will think hard about what we need to do to ensure that something like this never happens again," the club added. But, despite the apology, the football fans just couldn't stop themselves from taking a dig at FC Seoul for their hilarious blunder. Thatâs one way to get more people to watch. â Hosanna Fukuzawa (@hozyzawa) May 17, 2020Crowd are deflated â Paul Naughton (@MrUG) May 18, 2020what's the difference between the two when they are sitting in a football stand? â Stephen Waddell (@the48clubkorea) May 18, 2020Fc Seoul Employers when they took the dolls to their flat pic.twitter.com/6to7RuY7lR â Kleague.footy (@rt630297) May 17, 2020No wonder yours hasnât arrived yet @mickt74t â Jay (@drunk_logic) May 18, 2020As long as itâs only fingers that are being pointed! â neil (@nfholloway_neil) May 17, 2020Not sure about sports, but that girl in seat 14F is smoking.

Paatal Lok's Hathi Ram Chaudhary Reminds Us Of Jim Hopper & It Might Be The 'Strangest' Crossover

It's really exciting when two great shows have some parallels, people really go crazy and it's a weird kind of crossover that we get. Something like that happened with the new show of the week. No points for guessing that I'm talking about Paatal Lok that released on May 15th. Since we're obviously in a dire need of new content that's good to keep us entertained during the lockdown, it wasn't surprising that the Prime Video original became an instant hit. The thriller series follows the character of Inspector Hathi Ram Chaudhary as a case leads him to the dark realm of the underworld aka the titular âpaatal lokâ. Among all the praises for the show, there were some comparisons to a beloved character. A lot of people were reminded of Jim Hopper from Stranger Things and well, similar scenes from both the shows just cemented that resemblance even more. Even Netflix's official account couldn't help but post about the crossover. View this post on InstagramNGL was hella worried for Hathi Ram Chaudhary in this scene. It's unfair how cops on a mission always end up at a fair.A post shared by (@netflix_in) And, of course some trolling. © Netflix/Instagram And, some BFF goals.

is it just me or is hathi ram from #PaatalLok exactly like hopper from Stranger Things!!! â mansi b (@idli_idol) May 17, 2020 Is it? TIL #PaatalLok is the same as the upside-down from Stranger things â yungraita (@yungraita) May 15, 2020 Is this a fair comparison? Hathiram Choudhary is my Indian Jim Hopper.
What a season. What a finale. Thank you @PrimeVideo for this.

Sonu Sood�s Continuous Help In Sending Migrant Workers Home Shows The Power Of A Real Superhero

The COVID-19 health crisis has wreaked havoc across the globe turning the lives of the people completely upside down. And the worst part is, the most affected of us all are the migrant workers of our country. Due to the nationwide coronavirus lockdown, the entire fiasco has turned into an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Millions of impoverished migrant workers are walking, cycling, dangerously hitchhiking home, sometimes over distances of more than 1,000 km, often on empty stomachs to reach their respective homes. Tragically, over 170 people have already died in accidents on the way. Pained by the plight of these migrants, who are walking miles unable to go back home amid the lockdown, actor Sonu Sood recently said he will do everything he can to arrange for transport for them. On May 16, the actor arranged more buses for the migrants after obtaining special permissions from the government of Uttar Pradesh. In fact, Sonu had earlier organised multiple bus services for many such workers heading to Gulbarga, Karnataka from Maharashtra. मà¥à¤à¤¬à¤ मà¥à¤ फà¤à¤¸à¥ थॠमà¤à¤¦à¥à¤°.. सà¥à¤¨à¥ नॠà¤à¤ªà¤¨à¥ पà¥à¤¸à¥à¤ सॠबà¥à¤ à¤à¥ 10 बसà¥à¤ à¤à¤° सभॠà¤à¥ à¤à¤¿à¤¯à¤¾ रवाना, à¤à¤¹à¤¾-à¤à¤¨à¤à¥ à¤à¥à¤¹à¤°à¥ पर à¤à¤¼à¥à¤¶à¥ दà¥à¤à¤à¤° मà¥à¤°à¤¾ दिन बन à¤à¤¯à¤¾#MigrantWorkers #SonuSood #Mumbai #lockdownindia #Help_Them #HelpingOthershttps://t.co/dK7oFHGP9j â ashish pandey (@ashispandey1693) May 12, 2020 The 46-year-old actor, as quoted by PTI, recently said in a statement, âIt has been an extremely emotional journey for me as my heart pains to see these migrants staying away from their homes walking on streets. I will continue sending migrants home until the last migrant reunites with his family and loved ones. This is something really close to my heart and I will give it my all,â he added. As per arrangements, multiple buses left from Wadala and various parts of UP, including Lucknow, Hardoi, Pratapgarh and Siddharthnagar, as well as to states like Jharkhand and Bihar. Showing compassion, the Happy New Year actor was present to bid goodbye to these migrant workers who were stranded in the city ever since the lockdown began on March 25. In fact, now people on social media are tagging the actor hoping to get help and he is indeed reaching out to each one of them. Check out some of the tweets here: Will try my best will connect â£ï¸ https://t.co/uuAe3rhpw7 â sonu sood (@SonuSood) May 18, 2020Tell mom not to cry.. you will hug her soon. https://t.co/eCotmc2KQW â sonu sood (@SonuSood) May 18, 2020Tell your mom you are seeing her soon â£ï¸ https://t.co/DlC4lubhc0 â sonu sood (@SonuSood) May 18, 2020Someone will connect you â£ï¸ https://t.co/7aTPiSIPN2 â sonu sood (@SonuSood) May 18, 2020Hi..

Someone will get in touch with https://t.co/f9E1ZsxPJN â sonu sood (@SonuSood) May 18, 2020In addition, the actor also previously donated over 1,500 PPE kits to doctors across Punjab and provided his Mumbai hotel for the accommodation of the frontline healthcare workers. Not only that, Sood has also been feeding thousands of underprivileged people along with providing meal kits to migrants in the Bhiwandi area during the holy month of Ramadan. This man here has proved that he is a real life hero and we salute him for that!

Yuvi Opens Up About Fight With Andrew Flintoff Before Smashing Stuart Broad For Six 6�s

Even though former Indian cricketer, Yuvraj Singh  has played some excellent cricket during his tenure with the Men in blue, one of the biggest highlights of his distinguished career will always be hitting English pacer Stuart Broad for six consecutive 6âs during the T20 World Cup 2007 clash. It was a group stage match taking place in Durban and Mahendra Singh Dhoniâs side was looking comfortable batting first after winning the toss. The opening duo of Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir came through with each batsman scoring a quick half-ton. © Reuters However, it wasnât until Singh walked to the pitch that the true might of the Indian batting line-up was put on display. Infamous for trying to get under his opponentsâ skin, England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff had the same agenda on his mind when he approached the southpaw and said something which irked Singh so much, that he even went after the fielder with the bat in his hands for a few steps. © Reuters What happened just moments later, went down in history. As Broad ran down the field for six deliveries, he got smashed out of the park every single time and every hit was more impressive than the other. But what exactly did Flintoff say to Yuvraj which made that match a living nightmare for Broad? The cricketer revealed in a conversation with Kevin Pietersen on Instagram Live: âI think Freddie bowled two good balls and he bowled a yorker which I managed to hit for a boundary. Then he told me that this was a dash shot, he got pretty elaborative. He said 'I am gonna cut your throat off' and then I replied saying 'you see this bat in my hand? You know where I am gonna hit you with this bat'? I remember I was so angry when I hit Broadie for six sixes, I looked at Dimitri Mascarenas and then I looked at Freddie,â Singh said. © Reuters âMascarenas had hit me for five sixes during an ODI match so that is why I looked at him first. It was one of those games which we all will remember,â he added. It is a known fact in all of sports, scouting reports are one of the most important aspects of doing your homework before locking horns with tough competition. Clearly, Flintoff didnât do his bit, because if he had, heâd have known that Yuvraj Singh doesnât respond to threats like a scared little boy. © Reuters What turned out to be a great day on the field for Yuvi, became a black stain on Stuart Broadâs image as an international cricketer forever, and there is nobody in the whole wide world other than Andrew Flintoff who deserves to be blamed for it.

MJ�s Sneakers Auctioned For $560,000, Making Them More Expensive Than A Penthouse In Gurgaon

There is no denying the fact that people love sneakers. In fact, it wouldnât be farfetched to say that this is the age of the sneakerheads. But would you pay over Rs 3 crores for a one of a kind pair, even if you could afford to take the hit? We arenât too sure.
© Unsplash An auction house in the United States of America very recently sold a pair of sneakers that were worn by Michael Jordan in his first season in the NBA. The sneakers were also signed by the NBA legend.
© NBA Archives/Caption: Michael Jordan in 1984, his rookie year at the NBA Sothebyâs was also the auction house that sold the most first Nike running shoes, ever to have been made, last year. Even that pair, sold for an obscene amount of money, and was till now, the most expensive sneaker ever sold at an auction, at $437,500 or Rs 3.01 crores.
© Highsnobiety/Caption: Nikeâs Waffle Moon Shoe, the first Nikeâs ever made, sold for $437,500 Coming to the Jordans that were recently auctioned, they are the Air Jordan 1s from Nike. The identity buyer has not been disclosed by Sothebyâs as of yet, but surely, the person must be an avid sneaker collector, or someone who is really into NBA, and a Michael Jordan fan.
© Sothebyâs The sneakers were sold at a staggering price of $560,000. Add on top of that some other charges and fees that the auction house would take up, and youâre looking at a figure of about $575,000. As of writing this article, that figure roughly converts to about Rs 4.40 Crores.
© Sothebyâs For a game-worn pair of sneakers, this is unprecedented. The last time a pair of sneakers that were worn for a game, and were signed by Michael Jordan, auctioned for roughly $192,000, or Rs 1.5 crores. 
© Sothebyâs A spokesperson from Sothebyâs stated that they knew that this would fetch more than that, given the resurgence in Michaelâs popularity, thanks to his miniseries, The Last Dance. With that being said, they had not accepted that it would fetch such a high number.
© Sothebyâs Just to put things in perspective, a decent penthouse in Gurugram costs cheaper than that in some areas. 
© Reddit/r/delhisunsets If we do not count sneakers made of gold, or very rare customised sneakers, such as these OVO x Air Jordan 10s, these Jordan 1s are definitely the most expensive pieces in the world. Sad that the world wouldnât be seeing much of it now.

David Warner As �Baahubali� In Hilarious TikTok Video Proves He Can Be A Good Actor Too

If thereâs anyone whoâs making the best use of this lockdown, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, it is Aussie cricketer David Warner. He is the captain of the IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad and he recently channelled his inner actor, another aspect of his personality which his fans are really fond of. Interestingly, he took to his TikTok account and created a video of himself lip-syncing a famous dialogue from the blockbuster movie Baahubali.
Whatâs more interesting is the fact that, in the video, David is seen committing to the role of Baahubali with armour, chain and helmet. He even manages to perfectly mouth the Telugu dialogue and his daughter adds to the cuteness factor of the video as she is seen dressed as a tiger. He shared the video with the caption that read, "Guess the movie!! @sunrisershyd." Check out the video here: @davidwarner31 Whatâs the movie everyone?? ##foryoupage ##tiktokindia ⬠original sound - free_oxygen Earlier, the cricketer also roped in wife Candice and his daughter to groove on the popular Telugu song 'Ramuloo Ramulaa'. He shared the video on his Instagram account with the caption that read, "He and she are back again @candywarner1 thoughts?? What's the song?? #challengeaccepted #next #family #fun.â View this post on InstagramHe and she are back again ðð @candywarner1 thoughts??

Then a few of the guys in the team showed me a few funny videos," said Warner. "I downloaded and I thought let's put some smiles on people's faces by taking the mick out of myself, which is not that difficult to do," he said. David's latest Baahubali inspired video is being liked by many cricket and movie buffs alike. Of late, the cricketer has been winning hearts on social media by uploading numerous TikTok videos with his family.

Apple�s Smart Glasses Could Launch As Soon As Next Year & We Can�t Wait To See What It Can Do

Apple has been rumoured to launch new products this year, however, a new gadget rumoured to launch a while ago were the companyâs smart glasses. Appleâs augmented reality glasses could launch by 2021, according to tipster Jon Prosser, who has a good track record in the recent past for Apple leaks. © iDropNews According to Prosserâs sources, Appleâs AR glasses could launch by March/April 2021, however, previous reports have suggested the product is not ready to launch yet. 
Another renowned Apple tipster, Ming-Chi Kuo, who has accurately predicted Apple product launches over the years, suggests the Apple AR glasses would not launch before 2022. His prediction is based on sources in the supply chain and seems more reliable than Prosserâs leak.  Prosser, on the other hand, claims he has seen the AR glasses and called it âsleek as hell.â Other tidbits revealed to include a dashboard user interface with the name 'Starboard'. We can expect the glasses to have some sort of augmented reality as Apple is quite keen about the technology even on other products i.e. the iPhone and iPad.  I canât believe Iâm going against Kuo on this one... but I believe heâs wrong.

Apple Glasses are aimed for March-June 2021.

Also.
Iâve seen them.
Theyâre sleek as hell.

Will be showing you soon 𤫠https://t.co/0GaOYDA5N8 â Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) May 15, 2020 While the AR glasses were scheduled to launch sometime in 2020, it has now been pushed due to the pandemic affecting the global supply chain. Other reports have claimed the Apple AR glasses might not even launch until 2023 as Apple is making new breakthroughs with the product and also new challenges.  © iDropNews However, we can certain about one thing; Apple will not launch the AR glasses until it works and everything is right with the product. Apple is known for rolling out new products that work out of the box and will only go ahead with the launch if everything is right with the product.
We will have to see when Apple decides to launch the AR glasses and how it would actually work for users. There isnât much information available about its specifications, however, it remains to be seen how the AR glasses would interact with the real world and how it would work.

�Never Again,� Yuvraj & Harbhajan Express Betrayal After Shahid Afridi�s �Darpok Modi� Comment

One month ago, former members of the Indian cricket team, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh were criticised and abused on social media for promoting Pakistani cricketerâs Shahid Afridiâs NGO amid the COVID-19 outbreak. They had asked their fans from all over the world including India and Pakistan to consider donating towards Afridiâs initiative, and did so despite knowing the kind of backlash it was going to give root to.

I was planning to visit you all from a long time. The world is currently infected by such a big disease,â said the Pakistani cricketer before calling out the Indian PM. âBut the bigger disease is in Modiâs mind.â Mohammed Shahid Afridi @SAfridiOfficial abusing Our Army & PM Modi.

Sanjeet Sen: The Microsoft India Director Who's Redefining Football Coaching Amid Lockdown

In a country where cricket is considered a religion and cricketers are worshipped as demigods, other sports like football have, for long, been found lurking in the shadows. Playing second fiddle to cricket, football might not have garnered the viewership when compared to the gentleman's game, but there is no dearth of its enthusiasts in the country. While cricket remains the country's most-preferred sport, football has carved its own niche on the back of a never-before-seen interest and awareness, especially amongst the Indian youth. Even during the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown, where all sporting activity has been suspended, the fact that a football coach is busy innovating at home to continue training his students shows how far the sport has come over the years. Sanjeet Sen, an AIFF-certified football coach, was, like many others, coming to terms with the lockdown protocols deployed by the government as part of the preventive measures for novel COVID-19 when he came up with the idea of virtual football classes for his students sitting at home. The Gurgaon resident turned the tide in his favour with some innovation and strategy to reconnect with his students. But to understand his decisive step, we must dive deep into his life to understand his passion for football.
© Sanjeet-Sen
Born into a Bengali family in Kolkata, football, quite understandably, came naturally to Sen. "I was always fascinated towards football growing up. Football, amongst other sports, has been a part of my school, college and corporate journey. I played as a midfielder and idolised Diego Maradona and Lothar Matthaus growing up. Even when I got my first job at Dell in Bangalore, I played in the corporate league," Sen says with much excitement. But, owing to professional commitments and family life, Sen lost his touch with football, at least on the field. But, four years ago, football came back into his life, this time to stay for good. "When I became a father things naturally changed. But, my transition from being a player to becoming a coach really began when I started taking my six-year-old son to his football training," Sen recalls. "Just like me, there were other fathers who used to bring their kids to the academy. So while our kids practiced, all the fathers including me decided to form our own 'fathers group' to play the sport ourselves for leisure. At home, I also started taking my son downstairs where older kids would often play. There I noticed that the matches, more often than not, end with a brawl between the kids," the Chelsea fan reveals.
© Sanjeet-Sen
For someone who understands the phenomenal transformation of Indian football over the years, Sen is well aware of his tiny role which can make a big impact in nurturing the grass-root talent pool of the country. But, for a meticulous strategist working in the corporate structure, Sen isn't just focussed on imparting his football knowledge to his students, but is also helping them prepare for key aspects of life through the sport.
"From Monday to Friday, I don a corporate hat. But, I really look forward to the weekends where I can unwind with the kids on the football field. Football, for me, is not just a sport, it's a way to learn things in life. It's not just improving or getting better, but also enjoying the game. And if the kids can enjoy the sport and learn key life skills like focus, discipline, team work, time management and respect, there is nothing like it, Sen, serving as a major inspiration for others, concludes.

Dutch Govt. Advised Singles To Get �Sex Buddy� In Lockdown & We�re Awaiting The Next Sunday Task

The lockdown has impacted peopleâs mental health in many ways and it is even more difficult for people who are living alone without any social contact with anyone. While we are still finding ways to indulge ourselves into something productive or worthwhile, Netherlandsâs government has taken it to another level by asking the people living alone to get a âsex buddyâ for themselves.
© Unsplash Yes, you read that right! Their government is asking them to have a sex buddy amid the lockdown, According to BBC, the National Institute For Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) announced that single people who are seeking feeling contact also need to limit their risk of contracting Coronavirus. So, itâs suggested to limit physical contact with multiple people amid the outbreak.
© Unsplash The brainchild behind this is to minimize exposure of single people with multiple partners which will also help them limit the risks of more people catching the virus.
© Reuters They also asked people to have certain rules while choosing a âSex Buddyâ.  And the rules are mentioned as follows:
â You decide to have sex or come in physical contact with only one person who is your cuddle buddy or sex partner.
â Make sure that you donât have sex with anyone else during that period. It is also advisable to ask them to not come in contact with anyone else for at least fifteen days and then you can get together. â  If any of you has the virus symptoms, such as cold, cough, fever, sneezing, or shortness of breath, donât meet each other. As there are chances that you might have the virus. â Donât meet each other if you have come in contact with someone who has been tested Covid-19. © Reuters The following rules will make the chances of both of you catching Coronavirus less and youâll still have someone to spend your time with.

Abhishek Banarjee Talks About Confronting Our Inner Demons & The Social Connect Of �Paatal Lok�

You might not even remember that Abhishek Banerjee started his journey in acting almost a decade-and-half ago with a blink-and-you-miss sort of appearance in Aamir Khanâs Rang De Basanti. He has struggled and over the years he has made a name for himself with significant characters in films like Stree, Bala, and Dream Girl. And now, you can see him in Anushka Sharmaâs Paatal Lok.  © Amazon Prime Video If you have watched the show, you would agree this was a silent but powerful character. He actually didnât need words to portray his emotions as his expressions and eyes did the talking. Trust me, itâs not an easy job to convince your viewers without uttering dialogues but this man carried it on his shoulder way too âgracefullyâ for that matter and did give you goosebumps with the honesty that he played his character with. 
© Amazon Prime Video Well, I got a chance to talk to Abhishek Banerjee to know how he feels about the overwhelming response to the show Paatal Lok, how people connected to the realistic portrayals of the characters, and much more. Here are the excerpts from my interview:
Paatal Lok aired at the  perfect time as we are all staying under the strict rules and regulations of lockdown. What do you think? We are getting roasted in lockdown. The only thing that is good is that when your friends are also suffering along with you, then it doesn't feel that bad (laughs). Well, you can't complain and I am glad that Paatal Lok released during this time as I have got something to divert my mind with. Let me tell you that the makers already had the plan of releasing it in May and in fact, it was earlier in April. According to the calendar, it was supposed to release during this time only.  I agree with the concept shown in the show and I do believe that all the three societies - Swarg Lok, Dharti, and Paatal Lok - are all here and we don't have to go this far. This whole current scenario around us makes us feel that we are staying in the Paatal Lok.  I think what happens is we usually start ignoring the Paatal Lok where we're living and that's what the show is all about. Yeh Sach hai! Whatever said and done, we all are sitting and introspecting yourself and with these questions, you start seeing your demons. I know people who are leaving jobs in this lockdown as they are writing to me how they have become bitter toward their families and this is not for them. In the show, Hathi Ram is also realizing certain aspects of how these three societies, Swarg Lok, Dharti, and Paatal Lok, are connected to each other. Somewhere down the line, you can see so much wrong is happening. We are following the trend as we do something on TV, we follow it blindly and we don't even question the authenticity. We don't bother to know the truth and in today's time, we have started trusting WhatsApp forwards.  © Amazon Prime Video Abhishek, I feel we all have a demonic side to us and now we are finally meeting our demons because of the setting around us which is not as bad as it sounds because it's important to question yourself time and again.
Yeah and trust me, that's the most difficult part when you finally confront your own demons and everybody has that phase. Nobody actually lives in âSwarg Lokâ for that matter and in âKalyugâ, it's hard to see such people who are carrying the real âSwarg Lokâ hearts. But, I feel facing your demons is very essential and how you want to get rid of it depends on the empathy factor you have within yourself. It's very important that we believe in the community existing. Back in days, we used to stay in groups, and now, we all are staying alone and are meeting your demons. Whenever you criticize yourself, you get to the real you and if you tend to ignore it, you as a human being will become hollow from the inside. It's very important to stand and face those questions and even if you can't do anything about them, at least let them run in your mind.  © Amazon Prime Video I think we are having a bit of a heavy philosophical discussion and let me break the serious tonality and ask you about the overwhelming response the show got. Everyone is praising the show and the actors on social media. 
It's completely okay as the show is quite heavy too. You know it feels great to see such a response. You know, somehow, I believed that people would connect to it but I didn't know that it would become this popular. If you see the reactions, people are feeling the connection because of the characters and their journeys. I feel the honesty of the character is what people are connecting to. With my character, Hathora Tyagi, who's a criminal, it's the core honesty that people are liking. In fact, there was a guy who messaged me on Instagram who understood the silence of my character and he told me that he could feel the pain even in my silence and this message made me emotional. When the public connects with you completely, your job is somewhere done. It's the writing that's powerful and when I read the script, I was taken aback. Well, even the show also showed how the media covers the stories and it's a huge responsibility for that matter.  © Amazon Prime Video As you just mentioned that the media has a big responsibility but whenever I switch on my TV to consume news, it's all negativity, and a certain sense of fear is induced seeing all this during the Coronavirus outbreak. Do you think it's also the time to show some positivity too as it's needed to survive the heat of this âPaatal Lokâ?
Bilkul, I completely agree with you. The problem is not in what they show but the actual problem is the dramatization of it. You start presenting it as some TV serial. While some would take it as entertainment, some have weak hearts who might take it very seriously. Many psychiatrists are actually suggesting to not watch the news as the more you see it, the more paranoid they become and everyone's mental level is not at its peak. When you see them saying, 'Yeh Dekhiye COVID 19 Ka New Information', it feels weird because even WHO is not able to give us full confirmation. Why now show something which inspires people too like the art of living or how can we survive in the future?  You did touch upon the mental health aspect and in these tough times, everyone is feeling low. How are you keeping yourself sane? I have realized that music helps and whenever I get to a point where I feel very low or not too great, I pick up some activity. Cooking has now become an activity and I enjoy it. Earlier, you didn't have any purpose to look forward to but I am saying from the sidelines of privileged people as I have all the basic necessities. I always look forward to cooking or listening to music. In fact, it's better to talk to your friends, it helps.  Moving on, your characters have always been very relatable, be it in Stree or Dream Girl or Paatal Lok. I feel that if you come into the industry as an outsider, people connect to even more as 'koi apna sa hai'. Do you relate to this theory? Yes, I think the more rooted and grounded you are, it's easier to pull off parts that are relatable and realistic. Basically, any character that I have done till now, I have gone back and understood the socio-cultural-political background of the character, even if it's a comedy. I always try to find a human in my character and I start liking it.  View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@nowitsabhi) Taking you back in time, wo Entertainment ka Keeda Kahan Se Ghunsa? When did you realize that you wanted to become an actor or pursue a creative field? Basically wo keeda, padai mein failures se aaya. Till 10th, I was a very good student and I was studying in Kalpakkam because my dad was posted there. I was a sportsman and I was a shotput and a discus throw player and I used to play at the zonal level. I was not thinking about acting as I come from a Bengali family wherein my dad wanted me to become an engineer. It was in 11th when I took Science, I realized that I don't understand a thing and mujhe kuch samajh nahi aaya. I couldn't relate to it and I was like 'pass ho jaun wahi bohot hai'. So, I was in a lot of extracurricular activities, and in school, it started mimicry and when you take the stage, you tend to become popular. And once when I was going to take a centre stage in an event, a few of my teachers who were standing backstage taunted me and said, 'tu yahi kar' and then it struck me that I am meant for this.  At times it's hard to make your parents understand that you are not cut for choosing the stereotypical route of becoming an engineer, or a doctor or a CA. It happened to me too as I belong to a family where everyone is a Science student and I took something way different. Did your father ask you how you will make a living out of it? My dad was strictly against it but I was very committed to it. I came to Mumbai and kept trying my luck. My dad was worried and he had no idea what I was doing. He took his transfer and came to Mumbai. He wanted to keep a check as I am the only child. Thank god, in my 20s, I was very strong-minded and I took this call.  We with that Abhishek, you keep entertaining us with your significant roles!

He released a statement on Instagram on Saturday that reads as âGrowing up all I ever wanted to do was making videos and entertain people. I started making videos since I was 10 - and I havenât stopped since. Iâve given my hopes, dreams, blood, sweat - my whole life to my people on YouTube - A UGC platform where the entire content is built by users and creators like myself who somehow believe they can entertain millions of people irrespective of the access to resources they have. It is hard to accept this - but this video will remain banned and wonât be restored. This video had already broken several records and we were just a day away from saying that the most liked and the most popular nonmusic video on YouTube Globally belongs to an Indian Creator. Sometimes the biggest achievements become an easy target to be pulled down. Not getting enough answers can be the most disappointing situation to be in. Well, all I can say is it has been a very frustrating day. Thank you for all the love and support you guys have shown me. Life has repeatedly taught me and reminded me today that in the end, the only thing that matters to me is your love and my commitment to give that love back by entertaining and staying honest with you forever. Thank you all for being by my side. And I do see you ALL.â View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@carryminati) Whatâs your take on the entire fiasco?
