  • Teacher 'swallowed whole' by shark while fishing with friends off South Australia coast

    A large great white shark swallowed a teacher alive as he fished with friends in South Australia, an inquest heard. Sam Kellett, 28, had originally planned to dive at a different spot 100km away but a catastrophic fire warning forced them to move to Goldsmith Beach. Mr Kellett was freediving with friends and fellow spearfishmen when he was attacked by the shark. Witnesses told the inquest, in Adelaide, how the estimated five-metre shark thrashed its tail and launched itself out of the water, the local newspaper reported. Mr Kellett's friends said they did not see the attack but saw a large pool of red blood where Sam had been. In a statement, witness Aaron Whitaker said he heard one of the group yell.

  • 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.

  • Mood Sours in Germany as Majority Say They Now Fear Refugee Numbers

    Increasing numbers of Germans are becoming afraid about the growing numbers of migrants and asylum seekers arriving in the company, according to a new poll. Last month, TV footage showed large groups of Germans applauding and clapping as exhausted refugees from countries such as Syria, Eritrea and Afghanistan, arrived at Germany's rail stations. However, in a poll commissioned by public broadcaster ARD comprising of 1,001 people, a slim majority—51 percent—said they were afraid of the large numbers of refugees arriving in the country, compared with 47 percent who said they were unafraid, reports Deutsche Welle. A month earlier, the same pollsters put the number who were afraid at 38 percent.

  • 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
