  • 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

  • Arsenal crush United 3-0 with two goals in first seven minutes

    By Mike Collett LONDON (Reuters) - Arsenal scored twice in the opening seven minutes and ended the match as a contest with a third in the 19th as they crushed Manchester United 3-0 to move above them into second place in the Premier League at the Emirates on Sunday. The Gunners demolished United with some brilliant passing football, taking the lead when Alexis Sanchez scored with a clever near-post flick after six minutes. United, who were top of the table at the start of the weekend, rarely got going against the home side who were always in control and never looked like slipping up with Petr Cech only seriously troubled once.

  • Islamic State militants blow up ancient Arch of Triumph in Palmyra

    By Kinda Makieh DAMASCUS (Reuters) - Islamic State militants have blown up the Arch of Triumph, a major monument in the 2,000-year-old Roman city of Palmyra, Syria's antiquities chief said on Sunday, after they destroyed two ancient temples at the central Syrian site in recent months.

    Nine out of 10 tenants say they are unaware of a new law intended to protect them from so-called "revenge evictions" by their landlords if they complain about the state of their property. The legislation means landlords will no longer be able to carry out revenge evictions or "no fault" notices if they have not sufficiently responded to tenants' complaints about housing conditions. Research released by homeless charity Shelter in 2014 revealed more than 200,000 people were at risk of this type of eviction.

  • REVEALED: Top 10 most burgled towns in UK, as 60% of Britons IGNORE burglary alarms

  • 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.
