#RestoreKangana Trends & It’s An All-Out War Between Diehard Fans & Haters On Twitter Right Now

Kangana Ranaut is kind of like the Arnab Goswami of the Bollywood industry right now. You can love her or hate her but you just can’t ignore her. 
She had around three million followers at the time her Twitter account was permanently suspended on grounds of violating rules and creating disharmony between communities by spreading hate. © Kangana Ranaut Twitter Kangana had sparked a major controversy after she called upon Prime Minister Narendra Modi to use his “Viraat roop” from the early 2000s to “tame” Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. 
Kangana’s remarks sparked an outrage among social media users and people started to ask the social media platform to suspend her account for good. Here are the tweets that created havoc on social media: © Kangana Ranaut Twitter © Kangana Ranaut Twitter “We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline harm. The referenced account has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter Rules specifically our Hateful Conduct policy and Abusive Behaviour policy. We enforce the Twitter Rules judiciously and impartially for everyone on our service,” a statement was released by Twitter.
However, a day after the suspension of her account, her fans started to support her and also started to demand that she should return to the platform. © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter However, those who can't stand the Manikarnika star and her vitriol are maintaining that her suspension was totally called for and that she does not deserve to come back on Twitter. 
© Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter This is a social media war going on right now and we’re wondering if this will ever end. What do you think of the entire fiasco? Let us know in the comments section below.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kangana has completed her ambitious biopic, Thalaivi.  Based on the life of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, the film was slated for a theatrical release this month. However, it had to be postponed in wake of the recent surge in coronavirus cases.  She also has two action films - Tejas and Dhaakad in the pipeline.

The Mi 11 Ultra Is Xiaomi’s First Flagship Smartphone In India That’s Worth The Price Tag

Xiaomi has been shy of launching expensive flagship smartphones in India ever since it started operating in the country. But it seems like the company is looking to step up its game by launching the Mi 11 Ultra in India that commands an asking price of Rs 69,999. It is the most expensive smartphone Xiaomi has ever launched in India and it puts the question in customers’ mind whether it's worth it or not. I’ve been using the smartphone for over two weeks and in my opinion, it’s worth the price tag, and here’s why: Design and DisplaysThe Mi 11 Ultra is by far the most unique looking smartphone launched in 2021. In fact, it is the boldest design I’ve ever seen and kind of grown fond of as well. It’s got a camera bump that is the size of a spaceship with massive camera sensors and a secondary tiny OLED display. The Mi 11 Ultra is also particularly heavy due to its ceramic body. The device weighs around 234 g and can get even heavier if you plan to use it with a protective case.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The highlight of the device is its secondary display that is used for a variety of purposes. It can be used to display the time, battery levels, date and notifications. The information is customisable where you can even choose the colour of the text that glows each time you tap on the tiny display. The secondary display can also be used as a viewfinder if you want to take selfie images with the main sensor. Using the secondary display as a viewfinder felt natural and not gimmicky as some might assume. 
Additionally, the Mi 11 Ultra is also IP68 dust/water resistant (up to 1.5m for 30 mins) and comes with stereo speakers that have been tuned by Harman Kardon. The stereo speakers are a dream to use for watching videos and can get particularly loud without compromising the sound quality. Other salient features include 67W fast charging, fast wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging for accessories.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In the display department, the main AMOLED screen has a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels, a 20:9 aspect ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate panel. The display is also rated for HDR10+, Dolby Vision content and has a brightness level of 900 nits. In real-world usage, the Mi 11 Ultra’s display is a dream to use for watching video content. The colours are very accurate with great saturation levels. The smartphone’s display offers very vivid image quality that in my opinion is leagues ahead of the OnePlus 9 Pro. 
The 120Hz refresh rate also makes the overall experience buttery smooth when it comes to scrolling and playing games. The device uses an adaptive refresh rate feature where it automatically adjusts the tick rate according to what you are doing. The display is capable of going as low as 30Hz which results in conserving battery life. The 120Hz mode works across all resolutions however on WQHD+ mode you can expect to sacrifice battery life for obvious reasons.  The Mi 11 Ultra also has the ability to boost the visual experience where it can upscale HD content to WQHD+ natively. Lower resolution videos across apps and local storage do get a visible improvement.  The 1.1-inch secondary display is a great addition to have if you don’t want to keep picking your smartphone to check the time or notifications. Having said that, since the display isn’t too bright with a brightness level of 450 nits, it does get a bit cumbersome to use it under direct sunlight.  It’s still usable but I found it most useful while in bed, next to me on a nightstand.  Camera The camera on the Mi 11 Ultra is the main highlight in terms of both specifications and the overall design. The massive camera module houses a 50MP custom Samsung GN2 sensor, a 48MP ultra-wide sensor (128-degree field of view) and a 48MP telephoto sensor. The telephoto lens is capable of doing 5x optical zoom, 10x using hybrid zoom and up to 120x digital zoom. The ultra-wide camera’s higher fold of view is a dream to use for shooting images of landscapes and larger scenes. You can also use the same sensor for taking macro shots which wasn’t particularly great to use.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The main camera on the other hand does a great job at capturing images most of the time. Images are extremely sharp, clear and crisp. There is little to no noise in the images, however I did notice one big problem with colour representation. The main camera’s white balance is off by a huge margin where it isn’t capable of representing warmer colours with any accuracy. This might be fixed in a future update or could be an isolated problem for my review unit. 
The Mi 11 Ultra also does a great job at capturing portrait images where it accurately blurs out the edges on subjects. The edge detection works particularly well on objects that most smartphones tend not to do even in 2021.  Low-light photography on the Mi 11 Ultra is at par with other flagships most of the time, however there were instances where I ended up with mixed results. Even though the Mi 11 Ultra has one of the largest sensors on a smartphone, I would like to see clearer low-light images as it is capable of letting in more light.  Night mode is also great to use and the Mi 11 Ultra automatically switches to this mode whenever needed. Still, some low-light images have a bit of grain that could be improved. Also, at times, some results were softer for my liking.  If you would like to see the camera samples from the Mi 11 Ultra, have a look below: Performance The Mi 11 Ultra is powered by all the latest hardware you would find on a flagship Android smartphone. The smartphone uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 chipset and Adreno 660 GPU. The unit I was testing had 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage which is the only variant available in India right now. In my usage, I did not notice any over-heating, bugs or app crashes on MIUI. The smartphone managed to run almost an entire day with extreme usage and quite a bit of gaming.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In my testing, games like Genshin Impact ran ultra-smooth with little to no frame rate drops even when the screen was populated with a lot of enemies. The 120Hz refresh rate is also a dream to use when I tested it with Mojang’s Minecraft. There was also little to no throttling which means it didn’t heat up more than usual. 
If you are wondering about benchmark scores, the Mi 11 Ultra scored 3194 (multi-core) on Geekbench 5, 69FPS on GFXBench, and 688720 on Antutu. These scores are at par if not better than 2021 flagship phones which put the Mi 11 Ultra in the category of one of the fastest and most powerful smartphones of the year.  The Mi 11 Ultra’s 5,000 mAh battery also lasts longer than any other device I’ve used this year. It lasted from the morning till bedtime on a single charge even when turning up the refresh rate and the resolution. Of course, if you want it to last longer, you can always use the device in full HD and 60Hz mode.  The Final Say The Mi 11 Ultra is by far the most premium Android device you can buy in 2021. It offers the most unique looking design and incredible performance that matches with other flagships of the year. There are some features that still need improvement, however the Mi 11 Ultra is still worth the asking price considering what you get in return.

Trolls Attack Deepika Padukone For Being ‘Privileged’ After She Tests Positive For COVID 19

With the rising cases of COVID in India, people have become more vulnerable and helpless as the country’s health care infrastructure and the medical system seems to have completely collapsed at the moment. 
Many celebs have been infected with the virus and the latest star to contract it is Deepika Padukone.  Padukone's family members including her mother Ujjala, father Prakash Padukone, and sister Anisha have also tested positive for the Coronavirus.  Padukone is currently staying in her home town, Bengaluru. Although there is no official confirmation from Deepika, the news has been doing the rounds on social media.  Popular Indian paparazzi Viral Bhayani, took to Instagram to share that the actor has also been tested positive. View this post on InstagramHowever, in a bizarre turn of events, people were quick to pass their judgments and mocked her because she is 'privileged'.  They went on to say that she will be treated properly as she has the money for it and it’s only the less privileged ones who are not getting proper treatment.  One of the users even slammed her for not helping people who are in need.  © Viral Bhayani Instagram © Viral Bhayani Instagram © Viral Bhayani Instagram Is it fair to mock her this way? 
Meanwhile, Prakash Padukone's close friend Vimal Kumar spoke to PTI and said, "Around 10 days back, Prakash, his wife (Ujjala) and second daughter (Anisha), they developed symptoms and got themselves tested and the results came out to be positive." He also added, "They got themselves isolated but after a week Prakash's fever didn't come down, so last Saturday, he was admitted to a hospital here in Bengaluru. He is okay now. All his parameters are fine, his wife and daughter are at home and he too will be hopefully discharged in 2-3 days." Speaking about Deepika Padukone’s professional front, she will be next seen in 83 that explores the story behind the Indian Cricket Team's historic 1983 World Cup victory.

Ben Affleck Sends Video Message To TikToker Who Unmatched Him On Dating App Thinking It’s Fake

There are several people who become an overnight internet sensation.  Take Yashraj Mukhate for example, who impressed the audience with his 'Rasode Me Kaun Tha?' video or Dhinchak Pooja, who entertained us with her cringey songs.   These people made some viral videos, which we won't forget in a long time. © Instagram/Nivine Jay © Instagram/Ben Affleck The same happened very recently with a woman named Nivine Jay on TikTok. 
Her video has now gone viral, where she said Ben Affleck sent her a DM, and asked her why she unmatched him on a dating app.  Nivine mentioned that Ben Affleck and she had matched on Raya, a dating app, designed for celebrity users. View this post on Instagram Jay is a model and an actress, who recorded a video and added text to it, which read as "Thinking of the time I matched with Ben Affleck on Raya and thought it was fake so I unmatched him, and he sent me a video on Instagram." © Instagram/Nivine Jay The video then moves onto the next clip in which Ben can be heard saying "Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It's me."  
This video was first posted on TikTok, and then on Twitter, after which it went viral.  As of Tuesday morning, this video was viewed at least a million times on TikTok and it now has around 525,000 likes.  © Instagram/PopCrave © TikTok People left several comments on the video. One user wrote, "The way he said 'it's me,' my soul would have left my body," Jay also responded to it saying "confirmed my soul did leave my body."  Some people also misinterpreted the situation and were seen criticising Affleck and branding him a creep.   Nivine then cleared the air and said that she never wanted Affleck to come off poorly. She mentioned in a statement “I’m seeing a lot of comments calling him a creep and l don’t think that’s fair. l wasn’t making fun of him in the video,” She further mentioned, “l was making fun of myself for thinking he was a catfish and it was just supposed to be funny.”  Back in 2019, it was reported that Affleck was on Raya after his divorce from his wife Jennifer Garner in 2018. While he has been under the radar about his dating life, his relationship with Ana De Armas, couldn't be hidden. The couple recently parted ways.   There are also rumours circling that Ben has now started hanging out with his ex-fiancé, Jennifer Lopez.   What do you think about this whole video?

Here’s How BCCI Will Secure Australian Players After Their Govt Illegalised Their Return Home

One of the most adversely affected groups of overseas players that came to India about a month ago to become a part of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League are the Australians who were refused the right to travel back to their country after the COVID-19 pandemic surged exponentially here. Following Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson’s return journey to Melbourne, while using the travel loophole via Doha, the Australian government plugged the travel plans, preventing any Australian citizen who was trying to come back home from India via Doha, Singapore, or Kuala Lumpur. Official Announcment:

Adam Zampa & Kane Richardson are returning to Australia for personal reasons and will be unavailable for the remainder of #IPL2021. Royal Challengers Bangalore management respects their decision and offers them complete support.#PlayBold #WeAreChallengers pic.twitter.com/NfzIOW5Pwl — Royal Challengers Bangalore (@RCBTweets) April 26, 2021 They even illegalised the process with anyone who tried to violate the travel ban being liable to face up to five years of imprisonment, regardless of the celebrity status of the particular person.  Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison says that this arrangement is temporary and necessary in order to prevent a third wave of the highly contagious virus in their country. After nine straight days of 300,000+ Covid cases daily, India has now moved 400,00+. The US has banned travel from India; Australia will jail for 5 years if someone arrives from India. Only 7million had gone to Haridwar's Kumbh Mela in Apil to take a dip in the Ganges. — Ashok Swain (@ashoswai) May 1, 2021 With the IPL being called off and their rights to go back home taken away from them, the Australian cohort, therefore, finds itself in a rather vulnerable position. Thankfully, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has decided to intervene and ensure the security of the members of the Australian contingent which includes the players, commentators, and coaching staff members. According to Cricket Australia boss, Nick Hockley, the BCCI has to send the Australians to either Sri Lanka or the Maldives. Cricket Australia CEO: been working with BCCI/IPL to repatriate plyrs, suppt staff, umpires, commentators "as quickly and safely as possible" out of India.

Range of options: Maldives or Sri Lanka — Peter Lalor (@plalor) May 5, 2021 "So what we're working to do and what the BCCI are working to do, and they've been incredibly cooperative, is working to move the entire cohort out of India," Hockley told reporters in Sydney. "That's now narrowed down to the Maldives and Sri Lanka. The BCCI are working through the final details of that at the moment and we expect that movement will happen in the next two to three days." Presumably, the idea is to allow the Australians a 14-day quarantine period in any one of the two nations before they are allowed to make a trip back to their homeland, considering the test results come out negative.

Here’s How Bill Gates Managed To Meet His Ex-Girlfriend Once A Year While Still Being Married

If you’re still reeling from the shock of an announcement that Bill & Melinda Gates’ divorce was, then you better brace yourselves.  Some details about their private and public lives are now resurfacing, which may prove to be even more shocking than the sudden announcement of their split. © AFP If the thirst tweets and flirtatious DMs that people all over the world were sending to Bill wasn’t enough of a disaster, some quirky aspects about his private & public life, are again back in focus. © AFP According to an old article that was published in 1997 in Time magazine, the tech magnate had an arrangement with his wife, Melinda, that would allow him to go away on one, weekend-long vacation to meet his ex-girlfriend, Ann Winblad, every year.  © Reddit/r/TechGurus As per the report, Bill had this arrangement as of 1997.  
A subsequent report also states that Bill had a similar arrangement up until 2001. It is not clear at this point if this arrangement continued after 2001.  People who have followed the life of the tech & business mogul closely will know that while they were dating, Ann had a lot of influence on Bill.   After they broke up, they remained very close friends, and would meet up to discuss technology, computers and business, and would ride dune buggies, hang-glide or simply walk on the beach, at Ann’s North Carolina residence. © AFP Bill sought to keep this arrangement going on during his marriage, and with Melinda’s permission he managed to do so. 
It is even said, that Winblad had a major involvement in Bill, finally getting married to Melinda.   Bill actually asked Ann for approval, and she blessed the couple, saying that Melinda would be a good match for Bill, because of her intellectual stamina. © Reddit/r/TechGurus Bill & Winblad broke up in 1987, and in 1994, Bill married Melinda, in a private ceremony in Hawaii. 
Apart from a generic sense of schadenfreude, or enjoying seeing someone in misery, one aspect of why people are invested in this divorce is the financial aspect of it.   It is estimated that assets worth $148 Billion, will now be divvied up between Bill Gates & Melinda French.  © AFP This is set to be one of the most expensive divorces in history, second only to that of Amazon Mogul Jeff Bezos & MacKenzie Scott. © Reuters More importantly, how would it affect the functioning of their joint philanthropic missions, that were a part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Sonu Sood Breaks Down While Talking Of Covid-19 Crisis & It’s Heartbreaking

The real-life hero, Sonu Sood, who has been arranging oxygen, hospital beds, and medicines for people as the country battles the second wave of coronavirus, also seems to have broken down. He said that every cry for help is a realization that the system has failed to protect its citizens.
He recently spoke to journalist Barkha Dutt at length about how the shortage of oxygen in the capital and lack of hospital beds and non-availability of medicines is killing patients and not the virus. He said, “My parents are no more, and sometimes I think thank God they are no more because imagine they would have been helpless and I would have been running around for them. You feel like a failed human being if you are not able to get oxygen for your loved ones. You feel what have I achieved in life. I am getting calls from the most well-established people who have big houses in Delhi, and they say, ‘Please get me just one bed.” View this post on Instagram “Imagine how helpless they are. Imagine what will happen to a common person or a poor person who has no resources. Who will take care of them? Nothing can be worse than this. At least, oxygen is my right. A hospital is my right. If we say one lakh people have died, then imagine if we had one lakh more beds, these people would have been saved. The people who have died didn’t deserve to die. They are dying because they are not getting the treatment at the right time. Someone’s oxygen drops from 88 to 60 because he or she didn’t get a bed or oxygen. How are the families of these people going to lead their lives? They will live as failed humans. We all have also failed as humans,” he added. View this post on Instagram Not only this, Sonu Sood and his team of volunteers in Bengaluru provided around 16 oxygen cylinders to a hospital in the city and saved the lives of around 20-22 Covid-19 patients. The Karnataka team of Sonu Sood Charity Foundation received an SOS call from a police official about the urgent need for an oxygen cylinder at ARAK hospital.

Karan Patel Calls Out Kangana & Here’s Why He Thinks She's A ‘Hilarious Stand-Up Comedian’

Kangana Ranaut’s tweets were daily fodder for many who either agrees with her or bashed her for viewpoints. 
Just a couple of days back, she had said that she feels that people using oxygen cylinders and making oxygen plants should ‘return’ their share back to nature.  "Everybody is building more and more oxygen plants, getting tons and tons of oxygen cylinders, and how are we compensating for all the oxygen that we are forcefully drawing from the environment? It seems we learnt nothing from our mistakes and catastrophes they cause #PlantTrees," she wrote on Twitter.  © Instagram/Karan Patel We wonder how would she react to this on Instagram as her Twitter account has now been suspended.
Her account was suspended after she made objectionable comments on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. In her tweet, she had written, "Hundreds of murders and #Bengalisburning But Modi is Fascist and Mamata is a secular leader. Enough is enough #PresidentRuleinBengal." Twitter also released a statement and revealed why they chose to permanently suspend her account. A spokesperson said, “We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline harm. The referenced account has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter Rules specifically our Hateful Conduct policy and Abusive Behaviour policy. We enforce the Twitter Rules judiciously and impartially for everyone on our service." However, Kangana gave it back by saying that Twitter is a platform for Americans as it wants to enslave 'brown' voices. What do you have to say about this? Let us know in the comments section below.

5 IPL Safety Protocol Blunders By BCCI For Which Fans Want Sourav Ganguly & Jay Shah To Resign

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) started out with an ambitious goal of carrying out a full-fledged season of the Indian Premier League within the country despite it being a potential hotspot for another wave of the coronavirus pandemic, based on the pattern which was seen in other countries such as the United Kingdom and South Africa. Yet, the organization had assured the players and fans that all the necessary precautions will be taken and strict bio-bubble security measures will be maintained for the entirety of the season with multiple backup options ready as a fail-safe. IPL suspended for this season: Vice-President BCCI Rajeev Shukla to ANI#COVID19 pic.twitter.com/K6VBK0W0WA — ANI (@ANI) May 4, 2021 Nonetheless, on Tuesday, the BCCI officially announced that IPL 2021 was suspended until further notice. “The IPL has been suspended for time being. We spoke to everyone from teams, broadcasters and all those who were involved in it. It was decided to defer the IPL especially looking at the sentiment and current situation in the country. For us players health is paramount and BCCI will always keeps safety first. We will meet again soon and decide when we can conclude this edition, we will have to see when is the next window available,” Rajeev Shuka, BCCI Vice President confirmed yesterday. OFFICIAL UPDATE pic.twitter.com/6bW8YUYhON — Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) May 4, 2021 In a report by The Times of India, there are five major points that may have led to the sudden surge in the number of positive COVID-19 cases within the IPL players: 1. Random Hotel BookingsThe TOI report suggests that on more than one occasion, the hotel bookings for the various franchises were made randomly and often far away from the match and practice venue, thereby exposing the players and other staff members to a greater risk of contracting the virus. Once a team even stayed in a hotel which was situated inside a shopping mall where thousands of unverified people would go on a daily basis. Official Announcement:

The IPL Governing Council and BCCI in India in an emergency meeting have unanimously decided to postpone IPL 2021 indefinitely, with immediate effect. pic.twitter.com/pl9KKDXhGV — Royal Challengers Bangalore (@RCBTweets) May 4, 2021 2. Ground-Staff Not In Bio-BubbleTraining sessions require a significant number of ground staff members for assistance and proper execution of the regimented workouts for the players. However, the report suggests that these ground staff members in some of the most adversely affected cities such as Mumbai and Delhi were not added to the same bio-bubble as the other BCCI officials. As a result, many of them kept testing positive for over a month. 3. Lack Of Expertise Back in 2020, when the IPL was executed in the United Arab Emirates and took place without any major hurdles, the BCCI had appointed a UK-based technology and safety company Restrata to establish a central bio-bubble. TOI suggests that this year the Indian cricket board simply set up a hospital and testing laboratory in place. None of the members of the ecosystem were aware of the reason behind this. Big thanks for all the #Yellove!
Stay home. Stay safe.

No Quarantine For Hotel StaffThe members of the hotel staff who had the responsibility of looking after the various key individuals of the IPL were not made to practice a mandatory 14-day quarantine before attending the cricketers and their family members. No efforts were made by the BCCI medical staff to ensure quarantine for hotel staff members. 5. Commercial Flights For Broadcasters A separate bio bubble was set up for the broadcasters, the commentators, and the rest of the crew members and in case they had to fly from one venue to another, they had no option but to fly commercially while exposing themselves to the uncalculated dangers of contracting the virus from practically untraceable sources. OFFICIAL UPDATE #IPL2021 has been postponed keeping in mind the safety of all the stakeholders. pic.twitter.com/lfbaI3TobJ — Delhi Capitals (Stay Home. Wear Double Masks) (@DelhiCapitals) May 4, 2021 The drawback has been so significant that the fans have now started demanding a resignation from BCCI Secretary Jay Shah and the beloved former Team India captain and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly:  Complete disaster from @bcci.Ganguly and jay shah needs to resign — Kri (@KrishK74) May 5, 2021Itna paisa hokar bhi..shame on you @SGanguly99 @JayShah — Danny (@Ddnyana) May 5, 2021When Saurav Ganguly came in 2018 we was expecting too much From him related to indian cricket.

21-Ton Out Of Control Chinese Rocket Is Falling Back To Earth & It Could Crash Anywhere

A Chinese rocket the Long March 5B rocket is falling into Earth out of control and will re-enter Earth’s atmosphere this weekend. The Chinese Rocket is currently being tracked by the US Space Command. The rocket launched the Tianhe module last week which will become the living quarter of a future Chinese Space Station. However, the rocket is now to make an unguided re-entry which means it could crash anywhere, including highly populated areas.  © CCTV It is currently circling the world every 90 minutes. Since the rocket is out of control, there are fears that it could land on populated areas. Due to the speed of the rocket, scientists are unable to determine where it will likely fall but they do know it is expected to crash before 10th May 2021. 
Most space debris tends to go up in flames when re-entering the earth’s atmosphere, however due to the sheer size of the rocket, it will not disintegrate well enough and end up with big chunks of debris. Jonathan McDowell, Astrophysicist at the Astrophysics Center at Harvard University noted in his story for Space News “It’s potentially not good. Last time they launched a Long March 5B rocket they ended up with big long rods of metal flying through the sky and damaging several buildings in the Ivory Coast.” “Most of it burned up, but there were these enormous pieces of metal that hit the ground. We are very lucky no one was hurt. What’s worse is that it’s really negligent on China’s part. Things more than ten tonnes we don’t let them fall out of the sky uncontrolled deliberately” he added.  © CCTV As of now, the current orbit of the rocket has taken it as far as New York, Madrid and Beijing. The rocket also went as far south as Wellington, New Zealand and Southern Chile. As to determine where exactly the rocket will fall, McDowell added, "We expect it to reenter sometime between the 8th and 10th of May. And in that two day period, it goes around the world 30 times. The thing is travelling at like 18,000 miles an hour. And so if you're an hour out at guessing when it comes down, you're 18,000 miles out in saying where.” 
"And so you should not believe anyone who tells you, 'Oh yeah, I've heard it's coming down in this particular place,' " McDowell added. "Don't believe them at least a few hours before the reentry because we're just not going to know in advance.”  The safest bet for where the debris will land remains to be the oceans. "If you want to bet on where on Earth something's going to land, you bet on the Pacific, because Pacific is most of the Earth. It's that simple," McDowell said.  Source: Space News

Chris Hemsworth ‘Humbled’ After Seeing Massive Sea Of Football Fans ‘Worshipping’ His Billboard

There must be something seriously wrong with you if you don’t like Chris Hemsworth. Apart from being a proper style icon, he is also a gem of a human being and an extremely talented actor.  © Instagram/chrishemsworth Heck, one can actually argue, that among all Marvel superheroes, he stood head and shoulders above the rest. 
He actually had some of the coolest entrances in the entire Avengers line-up. The man legit made Thor stand out among all other Avengers. Do you have any idea how difficult, that can be? © Marvel Studios Recently, the actor signed a deal with the German luxury fashion house, Hugo Boss, according to which, he was selected as the first global brand ambassador for the brand. 
That means for all of Hugo Boss’ campaigns, Chris would be at the centre. © Hugo Boss Anyway, the fans of Inter Milan were seen joyously celebrating their first Serie A title in 10 years, i.e. since 2010. They held a procession, as one would expect when going away from the stadium. © AFP Someone took a photograph of the procession and a picture of a billboard that was recently unveiled. 
The actor, then made a self-deprecating joke, of how the fans weren’t actually celebrating their clubs win, but that of his the unveiling of his billboard. View this post on Instagram But that’s not all.  If you read the comments on the post, you’ll realise, that Hemsworth, had actually made quite a major gaffe with his post.   As per the comments, Hemsworth had mistakenly ID’d the Inter Milan fans, as AC Milan fans. People who follow football, and especially Serie A, will tell you, they are one of the fiercest rivals in European football.   Several of Hemsworth’s fans pointed this out and suggested that he edit his post immediately, which he did. © Instagram/chrishemsworth Say what you will, but the man clearly knows how to take a joke on himself. This is what makes him so much more loveable. © Instagram/chrishemsworth For those of you, who’re interested in the campaign shot that was used in the billboard, here’s an unmarked photo from the campaign.  
Watch and drool, guys -  © Hugo Boss Seriously though, how cool is Chris Hemsworth? A lot, if you ask us.

Here’s How Celebrities Reacted To Kangana's Twitter Suspension & Their Mood Seems ‘Celebratory’

Kangana Ranaut has left no stone unturned in taking continuous jibes at A-listers, politicians and pretty much anyone on her list in the last couple of years. 
The Queen actress has often tweeted some rather strong and personal opinions that left people incensed and outraged.  From the time she compared the state govt of Maharashtra to the Taliban to talking about incorrect usage of oxygen plants, Kangana has revolted on almost every topic. © Instagram/Kangana Ranaut After so many of her controversial posts, Kangana's Twitter account was finally suspended yesterday after her take on the recent West Bengal Poll results.
© Instagram/Kangana Ranaut A Twitter spokesperson said, "We've been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline harm. The referenced account has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter Rules specifically our Hateful Conduct policy and Abusive Behaviour policy,"
He further added, "As explained in our abusive behaviour policy, you may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behaviour an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else's voice." After this development, many celebrities from the Bollywood industry came forward, including Richa Chadha, Hansal Mehta, Swara Bhasker and Gulshan Devaiah, to react to the Twitter ban on Kangana. 🏾 pic.twitter.com/sSbYkcxbME — TheRichaChadha (@RichaChadha) May 4, 2021 Richa, without adding anyone's name, posted a meme that read "Be Yourself. Somewhere Else." Users were quick with their response and instantly reverted to the same.  One user wrote, "Kangna's suspended account is first wave, she will be back with new strain in second wave." Pleasantly surprised to see this! Kudos to you @AnandBhushan & #RimzimDadu for calling out hate speech and incitement to genocide in a direct manner! Stand tall you guys! ♥️ pic.twitter.com/G1Gd82bbmL — Swara Bhasker (@ReallySwara) May 4, 2021 Even Swara couldn't contain her happiness as a fashion house decided to cut ties with Kangana.  On that, Swara tweeted saying, "Pleasantly surprised to see this! Kudos to you @AnandBhushan & #RimzimDadu for calling out hate speech and incitement to genocide in a direct manner! Stand tall you guys!" Her majesty shot herself in the foot while plucking her eyebrows. Poor Virat, his name was dragged into this unnecessarily. — Gulshan Devaiah (@gulshandevaiah) May 4, 2021 Coming to Gulshan, he tweeted, "Her majesty shot herself in the foot while plucking her eyebrows. Poor Virat, his name was dragged into this unnecessarily."  In a tweet in response to the violence following recent assembly poll results in West Bengal, Kangana had mentioned Modi's "virat roop" from the 2000s. Whereas Hansal replied to a tweet, calling Kangana 'Full Nautanki'.  The tweet read, "Let her Koo all her toxic violent communal tweets somewhere else now. Thank you @Twitter @jack Update: Now she is crying on Instagram that “deshadrohi” desh chala rahe hain. The pain of getting suspended from Twitter is real." Amen!
I was in a mental state of tripping her with my left foot if I ever met her.
But, this is way better.
I hope a permanent relief.
Social media can be better without her. pic.twitter.com/5KGYI16opc — Kubbra Sait (@KubbraSait) May 4, 2021 Other actors including Kubbra Sait tweeted saying that it's a permanent relief for her whereas Bidita Bag requested to suspend Kangana's Instagram account as well. More and more actors are coming forward and reacting to this whole situation. But since Kangana won't suppress her opinion, she wrote in a statement "Twitter has only proved my point they are Americans and by birth, a white person feels entitled to enslave a brown person, they want to tell you what to think, speak or do. Fortunately, I have many platforms I can use to raise my voice including my own art in the form of cinema but my heart goes out to the people of this nation who have been tortured, enslaved and censored for thousands of years and still there is no end to the suffering,"

Video Clearly Shows KKR Buses Halting An Ambulance But Ahmedabad Police’s Response Stuns Fans

The Indian Premier League has been called off indefinitely with a surge in positive COVID-19 cases within the various players of the tournament despite a strong Bio Bubble security being maintained by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). IPL suspended for this season: Vice-President BCCI Rajeev Shukla to ANI#COVID19 pic.twitter.com/K6VBK0W0WA — ANI (@ANI) May 4, 2021 However, back when things were relatively normal and the franchises moved to Ahmedabad for the second leg of the tournament, a shocking scene was recorded on camera in which a convoy of buses belonging to the Kolkata Knight Riders could be seen crossing a street being escorted by a couple of police vehicles while cutting off traffic in the middle. The video also shows that the convoy ended up halting a medical ambulance as well, as they quickly moved across before the flow of the traffic resumed once again. Ahmedabad police stopped an ambulance to let pass IPL cricketers’ convoy in a bizarre turn of events.
News18 Gujarati reports this horrible incident that has sparked fury among citizens #Gujarat pic.twitter.com/YEq4MUOTkO — TheAgeOfBananas (@iScrew) May 4, 2021 “Ahmedabad police stopped an ambulance to let pass IPL cricketers’ convoy in a bizarre turn of events. News18 Gujarati reports this horrible incident that has sparked fury among citizens,” writes Twitter user TheAgeOfBananas, who shared the viral video online. “Failure to allow free passage to emergency vehicles.-- Whoever while driving a motor vehicle fails to draw to the side of the road, on the approach of a fire service vehicle or of an ambulance or other emergency vehicle as may be specified by the State Government, shall be punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to six months, or with a fine of ten thousand rupees or with both,” states section 194E in Motor Vehicles Act, ‘Failure to allow free passage to emergency vehicles’. However, the Ahmedabad police refuses to accept the video as genuine and feels that it was created with the malicious intent to defame the local forces. “We have seen the video and are yet to verify whether the traffic at said junction was stopped by Traffic Police or Ahmedabad Police. The police will never stop an ambulance on its way for any VIP convoy, be it of IPL players or any minister. We even don’t stop hearse vans for convoys. The case could be of momentary confusion. This is a malicious attempt to tarnish the image of police with fake and defamatory video,” they said according to a report by The Indian Express. The Knight Riders were supposed to face off Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 3 (Monday) but the match was called off in the morning when two KKR players, namely Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier were tested with the coronavirus. Here’s how the fans reacted to the video: Ambulance is not important. Your Amit Shah and Jay Shah are important. IPL for them is above people.. — pudinachatni (@Confusedmulgi) May 4, 2021What is the surprise here? When has the govt /politicians ever cared for the common man.. its part of the overall way our system works..-the 'mai baap' system..the ruler(govt) and the subject's.. — Manik Taneja (@mantan09) May 4, 2021I have never hated cricket like this before. Especially the masala tournament #IPL2021 — sanjai velayudhan (@v_sanjai) May 4, 2021Hope the patient inside got temporary relief from his symptoms due to the distraction of IPL. — Ahmed (@whaticannotbe) May 4, 2021

India Grants Permission For 5G Trials But Keeps Chinese Companies Like Huawei Out Of The Picture

India has given domestic telecom companies and network equipment vendors the go-ahead to conduct a six-month trial on 5G technology. However, none of the networking equipment that will be used for testing will be from China. The decision to exclude Chinese players could have been made due to the recent border tensions with India’s neighbours.  © Reuters Even though companies like Huawei were granted permission to participate in India’s 5G trial phase last year, it seems like the company has been excluded for now. Chinese network equipment will be excluded from the trials while companies like Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung, and C-DOT kit have been granted permission by the Department of Telecommunications. The announcement came via a statement by the Ministry of Communications. 
Indian telecom companies like Reliance Jio, Airtel, MTNL and Vodafone have been granted permission to conduct trials using their own technology or via key vendors. For the trials, telecom companies will use an experimental spectrum doled out by the Indian Government. These bands are spread across the mid-band, millimetre wave band, and the sub-gigahertz band. The telecom companies have also been granted permission to use their own spectrum for 5G trials.  © Unsplash The trials will be required to be conducted in three different settings i.e. rural, semi-urban settings, and urban settings so that 5G technology is not exclusive to urban areas, the Ministry of Communications said. Telecom companies have also been told to run the tests on a non-commercial basis and should not be connected to any of the existing networks. 
5G trials are slated to begin six months after Reliance Jio CEO Mukesh Ambani announced that the company will be rolling out its own 5G networks by the end of 2021. "I assure you that Jio will pioneer the 5G revolution in India in the second half of 2021," said Ambani, during the India Mobile Congress 2020 keynote.

After Kangana’s Twitter Ban, Fashion Designers Boycott Her & Sister Rangoli Threatens Lawsuit

Ever since her permanent suspension from Twitter for her remarks that could have enticed violence, Kangana Ranaut and her team are now facing a new and fresh round of boycotts.  This time around, by celebrated fashion designers. © Viral Bhayani Ever since the news of her Twitter account getting suspended broke out, notable designers like Rimzim Dadu & Anand Bhushan have put up statements, saying that going forth neither of them will be associated with any project that involves the actress. © Instagram/anandbhushan Delhi-based designer Anand Bhushan took to social media to share a post, stating that he no longer would be associated with her for any project whatsoever and urged the other designers to think twice before associating with the actor.
View this post on Instagram Designer Rimzim Dadu shared a post on her social media and wrote, "Never too late to do the right thing! We are removing all posts of past collaborations from our social channels and pledge to not engage in any future association with her." © Instagram/rimzimdaduofficial Furthermore, they also said that they are actively removing all photographs of their previous collaborations with Kangana and other similar content from their social media timelines. 
As if this wasn’t a big “egg on the face” moment for Kangana’s team, her sister, and manager, Rangoli Chandel, put up a post, trying to bash Anand Bhushan as someone who was trying to cash in on someone else’s fame. © Instagram/rangoli_r_chandel Anand Bhushan, savagely shut Rangoli down, by sharing an old Femina cover, where Rangoli is actually wearing clothes designed and created by Bhushan. 
© Instagram/anandbhushan © BCCL/Femina As if all this wasn’t enough, Rangoli then put up a story on her feed, saying that she would be filing a lawsuit against Anand Bhushan, alleging that “this small-time designer" is using India’s top actress’ name to "promote himself.” © Instagram/rangoli_r_chandel For people who are unaware of what has been going on, Kangana put up a tweet, asking Prime Minister to intervene and impose President’s Rule in Bengal, citing post-election violence. 
While doing so, she referred to the 2002 Gujarat riots in a discrete manner. © Twitter/KanganaTeam Twitter saw this as a call to riot and violence and therefore suspended her account permanently. 
As is usual, Kangana saw herself as the victim in all this, and gave this incident a colonial colour, stating that Twitter is a “white” man’s platform, and saying, “A white person feels entitled to enslave a brown person.”

Ness Wadia Takes Cheeky Shot At ‘Foreign Players’ Who Complained About IPL Bio Bubble

Within a couple of days, the Indian Premier League went from rescheduling a match to suspending the entire tournament indefinitely after at least one member of four out of eight franchises tested positive with the COVID-19 virus. “The IPL has been suspended for time being. We spoke to everyone from teams, broadcasters and all those who were involved in it. It was decided to defer the IPL especially looking at the sentiment and current situation in the country. For us players health is paramount and BCCI will always keeps safety first. We will meet again soon and decide when we can conclude this edition, we will have to see when is the next window available,” Rajeev Shuka, BCCI Vice President confirmed on Tuesday. IPL suspended for this season: Vice-President BCCI Rajeev Shukla to ANI#COVID19 pic.twitter.com/K6VBK0W0WA — ANI (@ANI) May 4, 2021 With uncertainty surrounding what has become the most lucrative T20 league in the world, many overseas players are trying to find their way back home, however, due to tough travel laws levied by the respective countries because of the dangerous Indian strain of the virus, the players’ journey might not be easy at all. However, co-owner of Punjab Kings, Ness Wadia feels that these “foreign players” should not be complaining so much about the situation, especially when they were made aware of the potential consequences of flying over to India for the league. Punjab Kings co-owner said hats off to the Indian players who have been playing non stop and didn't complain unlike some foreigners. The situation was different a month ago. They should study the fact that cases were very less when IPL started before commenting on it. (To PTI). — Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) May 4, 2021 “Hats off to the Indian players who have been playing non stop in bubbles and not complained unlike some of the foreign players. With due respect to the international cricketers including Zampa, the situation was very different a month ago. They should study the fact that cases were very less when we started before commenting on it,” he said according to The Times of India  "It happened during the Australian Open they shut the city down when it was happening. People didn't complain then, why now," Wadia added. Not everyone is convinced with Wadia’s take on the matter and fans of the numerous overseas players talk about the need to be more empathetic towards all those players who are thousands of miles away from their families while the Indian cricketers can take the next flight out and be with their families in less than one day’s time. That's such a stupid statement, Indian players don't have much of a worry of returning to home cause they ARE playing at home. Foreign players have to worry about leaving their homes, getting flights to India and back home. Plus add those insecure bubbles to the list — Human (@adangotha69) May 4, 2021This is wrong
They are not slaves to play at any cost, they have every rights to play or not play — M A N D E E P (@MandeepkumarN2) May 4, 2021Saying Indians didn't complain was fine, no need for him to say on foreigners..
It's not easy to stay away from ur country in a place where cases are skyrocketing 🤷 — Raunit Ranjan (@RaunitRanjan2) May 4, 2021Well, to be honest you should be happy that some foreign players are actually playing while far away from the family + covid cases are going up day by day they was no need to disrespect the foreigner players. — Prem (@Prem99021071) May 4, 2021

8 Marvel & DC Superheroes Who Have No Superpowers But Are Still Super Awesome

There are superheroes like Superman and Thor, who have supernatural and divine origins, and therefore, are legit Gods among humans.  Superheroes like these are blessed with awesome superpowers through which they fight evil. © Marvel Studios But then, there is a league of superheroes who aren’t exactly blessed this way. 
They are very normal human beings, who have trained themselves or have used their intelligence to elevate themselves to superhuman levels, and then fight crime.  Superheroes like Batman & Iron Man. © Warner Bros. Pictures We take a look at 9 superhero characters from the Marvel & DC universes, who have no superpowers or divine abilities but have still managed to elevate themselves to superhuman levels:
1. Iron Man © Marvel Studios Of course, we begin the list with Iron Man or Tony Stark. 
He obviously lacks superpowers and divine abilities, but thanks to his intelligence, his wealth, and his impressive understanding of weapons and engineering, he is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful superheroes out there. 2. Batman © Warner Bros. Pictures Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark have similar capabilities, although, Stark is more engineering and scientifically sound. 
Bruce, on the other hand, is tenacious and covers up his weaknesses, through sheer training and hard work.  While Tony’s powers come largely from his suit, For Wayne, the Bat Suit and all the other tech, are mere accessories. With that being said, he became a proper superhuman, through sheer will. Fun Fact: Here’s why we think Batman would beat Iron Man in a fight in the real world. 3. Robin © Warner Bros. Pictures We’re sort of pissed that Robin hasn’t had a solo film yet. His story truly has a lot to offer. 
We were actually excited when we saw Joseph Gordon-Levitt take up the mantle from Batman in The Dark Knight Rises.  4. Black Widow © Marvel Studios Black Widow is another “simpleton” with superhuman abilities. 
She has been one of the most savage characters in the MCU, and it will be really interesting to see how her first solo film plays out. Her origin story is something that piques a lot of interest. 5. Hawkeye / Green Arrow © Marvel Studios We’re keeping Hawkeye & Green Arrow in the same bracket here because they are the same, ability-wise. 
With that being said it is actually astounding to see someone never miss their mark, no matter how difficult the shot is.  © Warner Bros. Television Also, it is pretty fun watching someone master the bow & arrow to such a great extent, that they stand out in proper gunfights.
6. The Punisher © Netflix The Punisher just had to be on this list. He is the archetypal superhuman and a supersoldier. Technically speaking, he is an anti-hero, rather than a superhero, but we will still add him to this list. 
If you know nothing about the Punisher and have been living under a rock all this time, we suggest you watch the TV series on Netflix. Or better yet, read some of the comics.  Without a doubt, he is one of the most brutal human beings in either of the universes. 7. Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier) © Marvel Studios After his “death,” Bucky was actually brainwashed and trained by the Russians to be the ultimate soldier a human being could be. 
The only “unnatural” thing about his body and abilities is the prosthetic arm that he uses. Otherwise, all of his powers and abilities come through his training.  As for his ability to not age, he was frozen for decades at a time, in between the clandestine missions for which he would be sent, which meant biologically, he stopped ageing for decades at times. 8. Deadshot © Warner Bros. Television Again, there is nothing supernatural or divine about Deadshot’s ability. However, through sheer training, and skill, he is on a different level with guns. 
Besides that, his skills include exceptional tracking and espionage capabilities. For sure, he is one of the deadliest people on the list.

Man Unable To Have Sex Goes Online For Help & The Internet Stepped Up To Show Its True Power

Reddit, much like the rest of the Internet, can be quite funny, as well as a brutal place.  However, there have been times when it has shown that it has a gentler, and a much more philanthropic side to it. © iStock Recently a man took to the microblogging site to ask fellow Redditors to help him deal with a rather bizarre situation. 
The man says he needs help in dealing with his partner, who wants to have sex with an old friend of theirs, as he is unable to have sex himself due to his anatomy.  Apparently, before they began dating, his partner had promised this old friend that they would have sex someday. © iStock According to the post that he put up, he is unable to have sex with his partner because of a physical anomaly, which has rendered his penis with a rather steep curve. 
He says, “One of the most distressing issues is the fact that my penis is so curved that it’s functionally impossible for sex. And they want to have sex with this friend. Which I'm not OK with. And there's the threat of break-up if I continue disliking it.” He further adds that he feels sexually handicapped. He says - "I can't stomach watching porn and realising I'm sexually handicapped for life.” © iStock Another aspect of distress that he has was concerning his progeny. He wrote in the post, “I’ll never be able to have that. I'll never be able to go through the process of making a child together properly.”
He also wrote about the prospects of having to watch his partner get intimate with another person, right in front of his eyes(that’s how his partner wants it, the post said), is a daunting thing, and that he doesn’t have the stomach to accept this. © iStock At a time when men’s virility and their sexual prowess is one of the major ways that toxic masculinity hurts men, Reddit, for a surprise, took kindly to the man’s plight, and largely came out in support of him, offering him some sound advice.
One Redditor said, "Go to a doctor. There may be surgeries that can correct this condition. I assume you are fairly young and you should not have to go through life like this." Another one chimed in saying, "Just end it and focus on yourself because you don't need this negativity and stress in your life. It's not worth it, it's not healthy and you deserve better.” © iStock Another Redditor commented, saying “Your partner is not obligated to have sex with her friend. Nobody is ever obligated to have sex. Not even after a promise.” 
This person also added “There is nothing forcing your partner to do this. She wants to have sex with her friend. The past promise doesn't matter. It is just an excuse." Truly, The Internet can be a beautiful place...on rare occasions. Has something like this ever happened to you where the Internet solved your woes? Let us know in the comment section below.
