  • 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.

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

    GETTY Pilferers are causing crimewaves up and down the country, with Newcastle topping the roll of dishonour. The northern powerhouse is followed by Brighton, Leeds and Manchester. Making up the rest of the top 10 is Edinburgh, Liverpool, London, Nottingham, Southampton and Glasgow. The study has also revealed many victims do not believe the crime will be properly investigated with only 78 per cent of incidents being reported to police. The research, carried out on behalf of security firm Canary, showed just 19 per cent resulting in convictions. The news comes as revealed only one in eight homeowners who are burgled ever see any of their stolen possessions again.  Despite the threat q

Donald Trump, the presidential front-runner, on Friday night said stricter gun control would not work because “people are going to slip through the cracks” while Ben Carson said tighter laws would not stop “crazies”. Jeb Bush also spoke out, using the somewhat ill-advised phrase "stuff happens" - which was seized upon on social media. "Look, stuff happens, and the impulse is to do something - and it's not always the right thing to do," he said. And their arguments resonate deeply through the valley in which Roseburg sits - a town of 22,000 people 180 miles south of Portland, nestled beside the Umpqua river and beneath q

    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.

  • Putin Has Bitten Off More Than He Can Chew

    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
