Chief Minister of the youngest state in India, Telangana – Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao aka KCR, who uses a chopper for his tours in the state will now tour in a 5 Crore Mercedes Benz bus. A bullet-proof Mercedes Benz bus has been purchased for Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his tours of Telangana. The cost to the state is five Crores. The bus was brought this morning from Chandigarh to Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana. It will be managed by the state transport corporation. The bus is fitted with state-of-the-art technology and can withstand any type of attack. According to a Times Now report, it has an inbuilt bedroom, rest-room, a small meeting hall, internet and stairs to the rooftop of the vehicle. Rao has been primarily using a helicopter for his tours in the state - be it for site inspections, launch of programs or lying of foundation stones. The 'vanity' bus drew sharp criticism from the opposition on Friday, who termed it as a waste of money. "KCR is spending lot of money on a bulletproof bus to tour the state...before the election also he had toured the state. Why does he need a bus, that too worth five crores? The money should have been used to help the poor in the state," said senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao. However, the TRS is condemning the comments and claimed them as rumors. "Our Chief Minister will also be travelling in a state road transport corporation bus just like the common people of the state," a spokesperson in the Chief Minister's office told media. "It is not really a luxury bus. It doesn't even have a bed inside. It only has 12 seats for staff from the Chief Minister's Office to travel with him and hold meetings while on the move," he said. “The Chief Minister - KCR as he is popularly known- reportedly said he did not want a bedroom on-board, opting instead to use the space for a work area. The bus has easy stair access from within the roof so the Chief Minister can make public appearances”. He is expected to use the bus for the first time from tomorrow as he launches a tour to start a massive tree plantation drive
Earlier, there used to be a dictator called King Jong Un, who killed people doesn’t sing for him. There are many others in Indian history as well who embraces the tyranny. Now, is Delhi witnessing another dictator in making? Even after completing 100 days in Power, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has shown no progress in fulfilling his promises, which he made during the election time. While Delhi lists as the most polluted city in the world, the Aam Aadmi Party founder is enjoying in Air Conditioners. He is not bothered even if the power bill reaches six digits. Getting vexed with the leader’s behavior, a rebel member of Arvind Kejriwal's party conducted a press conference to share his criticism on the CM. However, he was left without any electricity in his office seconds before he began a press conference. Pankaj Pushkar, one of the 67 legislators from Mr Kejriwal's party in the 70-seat Delhi Assembly, alleged that the power cut for his office was orchestrated to impede his interaction with reporters. He did not, however, hold back on a litany of complaints. "The ethos of the party is in serious danger", he said, adding that he was forced to voice his concerns publicly after being refused an appointment by Mr Kejriwal and his deputy, Manish Sisodia, for over a month. That could be because Mr Pushkar is part of a rebel faction within the Aam Aadmi Party headed by leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, who have accused Mr Kejriwal of expunging dissent - including theirs - from all party fora. In evidence of his claim that the Aam Aadmi Party has deviated wildly from its commitment of providing down-to-earth, frills-free and transparent governance, Mr Pushkar referenced a television ad for the Delhi government that has aired to much criticism, not least because of its sexist depiction of its housewife protagonist. The ad, which played in heavy rotation, was also slammed for sneaking around a Supreme Court ban on politicians featuring in publicly-funded promotions for the government -the ad does not show Mr Kejriwal but mentions him with uninhibited frequency. Today, the opposition said that Mr kejriwal's government has budgeted a massive 500 core rupees for government advertising and promotion over the next year, as compared to Rs. 23 crores last year. As evidence of his claim that the AAP now functions exactly like the traditional parties it has criticized, Mr Pushkar cited an electricity bill of nearly a lakh for the Chief Minister's residence for the last two months. AAP has said the bulk of the costs were incurred for sections that are used by Mr Kejriwal as an at-home office space.
The first half of the film starts with a quick narration about James Cameroon’s original version. Though the bonding has been narrated well enough, the movie fails to grab interest except some breathtaking action sequences. Some of the emotional episodes have been captured well which makes the first one hour not a bad film. The second one hour of the film takes a different path. The lore is disconnected and rewired, bringing lot of confusion. The terror has not taken the bloody side which could not bring the fear among the audience thus ending up disappointed. The second half of the film is a sure downfall and is completely a misfire. The climax of the movie makes Terminator Genisys even worse.

A new study on Vitamin A finds that supplementation of the vitamin above and beyond normal levels may have negative health consequences although it has many health benefits. “This study helps to explain the mechanisms of anti-inflammatory effects of vitamin A and by doing so opens the door to identifying novel ways to modulate the immune response and restore its function in situations in which it is dis-regulated,” said one of the researchers Mihai Netea from the Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. To find this fact, Netea and colleagues stimulated immune cells that are isolated from volunteers with Vitamin A. They found that cells produced only fewer cytokines that help ward off microbes upon stimulation with various mitogens and antigens. In addition, the cells were also stimulated with various microbial structures, which resulted in long-term activation or training of the cells. When the same experiments were performed in the presence of vitamin A, the researchers observed that microbial structures were no longer able to activate the immune cells.The study was published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology.

According to a new study, Indiana University scientists revealed a new way to develop offspring’s brain before pregnancy. Pheromones are chemical signals that are used to communicate between organisms of the same species. The connection between male pheromones and offspring’s brain development seems to stem from the influence of male pheromones on the nursing ability of mother mice. The scientists measured greater mammary gland development in mice that are exposed to male pheromones a week after exposure, which may have led to greater volumes or improved quality of milk production. These mother mice also showed lengthier nursing periods compared to mice not exposed to the male pheromone. To measure the intelligence of the offspring, the researchers placed mice in a water maze with a hidden platform. The mice born of mothers exposed to male pheromones learned the location of the hidden platform much faster, suggesting quicker learning and stronger spatial memory compared to the control group. The study was published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B: Biological Sciences. By Lizitha
On the sidelines of Digital Media, which Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched on 1st July, MyGov, a Government of India platform to connect to citizens, hosted an informal interaction with a few selected individuals. Active contributors to MyGov and other social media influencers, were handpicked for this event. They were granted an interaction with Narendra Modi at his official residence at 7 Race Course Road, from 12.00pm to 1.30pm. We talked to some of the invitees to find out what happened behind closed doors. About 150 such individuals from all around the country were present for this once in a lifetime opportunity. The Prime Minister met each and everyone invited. Modi personally greeted everyone, shook hands and felicitated winners of the MyGov contest. He even posed for photos with each person individually, but there were no selfies, since mobile phones were not allowed. Modi even recognized some of the prominent social media users, like Temsutula Imsong, who is doing great work cleaning up the Ghats in Varanasi. Imsong recalled that Modi had mentioned her in a tweet on 1st April 2015, for her work in Varanasi. She remembered how when her friends told her about this, she thought it was an April fool prank. But after that, she received tremendous help from people in her work. Modi too spoke at length to all the participants. He asked his social media supporters to not use abusive language on Twitter and other social media. He stressed on speaking about “positive things in a positive manner”. He gave his own example, saying he receives loads of abusive messages all day on Social Media. “If all the abuses I receive are printed on a paper, entire premises of Taj Mahal will be covered”, he said, but he stressed that in spite of this, he hasn’t blocked anyone on twitter. Hence, he said, no matter what others do, his supporters should try to say positive things.

A study performed by the researchers from University of Cambridge finds that women’s faces get redder during the time of their ovulation, but it’s so subtle that the human eye cannot pick up on the changes in color. The research was published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE. For the study, 22 women were photographed without make-up every working day for at least one month in the same environment and using a scientific camera modified to more accurately capture colour. The participants also self-tested for hormone changes at key times dictated by the research team's "period maths". The team found that redness on women’s face varied across the ovulation cycle, peaking at ovulation and remaining high during the latter stages of the cycle after oestrogen hormone levels have fallen. When the researchers analysed the results through human models of visual perception, the biggest difference in redness was 0.6 units, and the human naked eye needs 2.2 units in order to detect those changes. This means that humans can no longer outwardly see the changes in redness during peak fertility, and this is where the evolution comes into play. Other study has shown that when women are in the fertile phase, they are more flirtatious and their pupils dilate more readily, but only when they are thinking about or interacting with attractive men.

Do you want to try hair straightening for the next party? Then here are some simple tips that will help you to iron your hair. Follow them and rock the party. Step 1: Take a high quality bristle and detangle your hair. This type of brushes evenly distribute the sebum from the scalp to the ends of the hair and will keep your locks looking shiny and frizz-less. Step 2: Apply a heat serum to wet or towel-dried hair. Apply the product on your hair but don’t let the product get near the roots, as this can make your hair look lank and greasy. Step 3: Divide your hair in sections and clip them up. Blow dry each section going from root to tip, carefully pulling the round brush away from your head as you do so. Step 4: Once your hair is dry, clamp the straightening iron around your hair and gently smoothen each strand. Choose small strands for more effective results. But use the straightener about an inch away from the roots. Step 5: To finish off the look, apply a shine-boosting serum on your hair. By Lizitha
