  • 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

  • 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.

  • Scans on Ancient Romans who died in Pompeii reveal they had perfect TEETH

    They lived way before the days of modern dentistry but the Ancient Romans who were killed in Pompeii in AD79 had perfect teeth, it was discovered. Scientists used CAT scans to examine the preserved remains of people who were killed when the ancient city was burnt to the ground after an eruption of Mt Vesuvius. Researchers believe their perfect teeth means they had a low sugar, high fibre diet and may even had eaten better than we did. Dental expert Elisa Vanacore said: “The inhabitants of Pompeii ate a lot of fruit and vegetables but very little sugar.

    This article first appeared on the Atlantic Council site. For 15 years, Gleb Pavlovsky worked as an adviser to Russian Presidents Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin and the one-term Dmitry Medvedev. He was one of the chief architects behind the "power vertical" concept—the need for a strong leader to create stability. Freedom and democracy were supposed to "come later." Unfortunately for Pavlovsky, the exact opposite happened. After writing several articles on why Medvedev should run against then–Prime Minister Putin in the 2012 presidential election, he got fired. Today, he says he is happy he was kicked out in time, before the regime descended further into authoritarianism—and instead offers an
