  • A Guy Who Injected Himself With Ancient Bacteria Thinks He's Found Immortality

    A Russian scientist has made a bizarre claim linking ancient bacteria to immortality. Anatoli Brouchkov, who injected himself with 3.5-million-year-old bacteria has said how it has helped him work longer and avoid the flu for the last two years. As the head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, he put himself forward as a guinea pig for the controversial experiment in the hope of uncovering the key to finding eternal life. "I started to work longer, I've never had a flu for the last two years," he told The Siberian Times. "It wasn't quite a scientific experiment, so I cannot professionally describe the effects," he added. "But it was quite clear for me that I did not catch

  • India's first male supermodels: Then and now (7 photos)

    At some point of time in the 90s, after our country opened its gates for economic liberalisation and before the runway merged with Bollywood, Indian fashion was all about four men – Arjun Rampal, Milind Soman, Marc Robinson and Rahul Dev – the first and also the last of their kind. Of course there was John Abraham, whom Atul Kasbekar regarded as a ‘combination of all the aforementioned models’; subsequently, the breed of  male supermodels sort of died out in India. Today the lines that define masculinity have become more or less blurred, with the assimilation of metrosexual and androgynous; on the other extreme, stands the brawny men, and individuality got pushed into the periphery somewhere along the way. There is an abundance of models, but dearth of characters, contrary to the days when Milind Soman, Arjun Rampal, etc., were household names. The highlight of any fashion shows these days are the Bollywood stars, whose roles have extended to that of a show stopper. Even brands resort to the big screen when they are looking for a face to sell their products. Change is inevitable and good, but it also brings a sense of loss; all we can do is reminisce the good old era of male supermodels. In pics: How the Big Four – Arjun Rampal, Milind Soman, Marc Robinson and Rahul Dev – have changed through the years. Image credit: Yogen Shah, AFP, AP, facebook.

  • 5p Carrier Bag Charge: All You Need To Know About The New Supermarket And High Street Fee

    Start remembering your “bags for life” - because from next week you’ll have to cough up 5p for each single-use plastic bag. The Government has introduced a law requiring all supermarkets and large stores to charge a minimum of 5p for every single-use plastic carrier bag they hand out in a bid to reduce their use and the litter they cause. There will not be a charge for paper bags or bags from shops in airports or on trains, aircraft or ships. Customers will not need to pay if the bag only contains certain items such as unwrapped food, raw meat and fish where there is a food safety risk, prescription medicines, uncovered blades, seeds, bulbs and flowers or live fish.

  • Senior Vatican Priest Fired After Revealing He Is Gay

    The Vatican fired a senior priest on Saturday, October 3, after he came out as gay on the eve of a synod where the place of gays in the church was due to be discussed. Monsignor Kryzstof Charamsa, who worked in the Vatican’s doctrine office, said he was gay in newspaper interviews published Saturday. “I want the church and my community to know who I am: a gay priest who is happy, and proud of his identity. I’m prepared to pay the consequences, but it’s time the church opened its eyes, and realised that offering gay believers total abstinence from a life of love is inhuman,” the Polish priest said. He also said he has a partner. The Vatican moved quickly to dismiss the priest and said Charamsa’s “decision to make such a pointed statement on the eve of the opening of the Synod appears very serious and irresponsible, since it aims to subject the Synod assembly to undue media pressure.” This video shows Charamsa speaking about his sexuality during an interview in Warsaw several days before he came out publicly. The video was filmed as part of a documentary being made about homosexuality in Poland. Credit: Artykuł Osiemnasty
