Bird Box Challenge? Teen Crashes Car While Driving

Internet challenges cease to surprise us these days. If only, we look forward to this on social media. If internet challenges like #whatthefluff and #kikichallenge shook the internet, this was no different. In what appears to be an inevitable outcome of stunts tried at home (or we’d say on the road, actually), a teenager from Layton, Utah, crashed her car while driving blindfolded. She was apparently trying out the Bird Box Challenge that’s been raging on the internet these days.

The Bird box challenge

The Bird Box challenge became popular after Netflix’s hit film Bird Box. The psychological thriller stars A-lister Sandra Bullock as the lead actor. Bullock plays the role of Malorie, a mother who is desperately trying to get her children to safety, all while she and both her kids are blindfolded.

The Bird Box challenge, is basically people blindfolding themselves and carrying out their daily duties. Be it driving, cooking, bathing or jogging, the person has to navigate blindfolded.

The plot is a sort of post-apocalyptic scenario, where the world is overtaken by invisible alien entities. Yes, the aliens are malevolent towards humans. People are seen committing mass suicide, jumping to their death upon laying eyes on the monsters. The creatures apparently transmute into the persons deepest and darkest fears upon eye-contact.

The madness that followed

Bird box made headlines within just 7 days of its release with a whopping 45 million views on Netflix. The streaming giant couldn’t be any prouder of its creation. Well that was up until Bird Box Challenge started doing its rounds.

People went about blindfolded everywhere. Twitter was literally spammed with Bird Box Challenge tweets. Up until now, the clips had been quite the comedy of the year. Besides these, it also contributed to several memes. Someone even blindfolded their toddler, only to whack them against a wall while running. Ouch!

Netflix begged people to stop

While acknowledging the love people have shown for the movie, Netflix posted a tweet begging people to stop the challenge citing injuries.

Well, one teenager from Utah decided it was time to up the game. The Layton Police department reported that the child was only a mere 17 years of age. She voluntarily blindfolded herself on the driveway, while taking directions from her 16 year old passenger. The teen soon lost control of her vehicle and crashed into another car. The victim of the car crash was a 56 year old man. Luckily, none were injured or hurt.

Twitterati strikes back

Police say that the teenager didn’t admit the reason which caused the accident. However, upon probing the matter further, the girl admitted to taking up the Bird Box Challenge and blindfolding herself. We’re not sure though if Netflix somewhere benefitted from the free publicity it got.

Twitterati has obviously not laid low post the incident.

Looks like the world is finally beginning to understand the dangers of this challenge. Quite a few twitter bugs replied to the police, asking them to revoke the teen’s license. As a matter of state and world security, their concerns do seem fair.

Olive Naps With David Beckham Under Louis Vuitton Blanket

Soccer sensation David Beckham has the internet swooning over him yet again. Wife and former Spice girl, Victoria Beckham shared an adorable picture of him napping with their dog, Olive. The post was shared on Sunday.

Olive is more than happy sleeping on Beckham’s chest. While the soccer star looks blissfully asleep, the blanket covering him and the dog caught much attention.

David And Olive

David Beckham’s dog Olive can be seen cuddling under a posh Louis Vuitton blanket. The comforter is estimated to be worth five thousand pounds! Following the viral post, news of how Beckham’s dog Olive, possibly saved Louis Vuitton, started doing rounds.

Olive Beckham (as Victoria calls her), is around a year old. She’s a chocolate brown cocker-spaniel. The blanket in David and his dog’s nap snap was featured in the Louis Vuitton-Supreme collaboration of 2017.
Apparently, Louis Vuitton has teamed up with Supreme to launch a new brand and style of fashion wear. The collaboration did not turn out as expected. This resulted in a huge loss of brand-image for Louis Vuitton and Supreme.

The Fashion Murder

Louis Vuitton is a fashion brand located in Paris, France. It is a heritage company that was established in the year, 1854 A.D. Louis Vuitton CEO, MIchael Burke is the brains behind the collaboration. Speaking of why he felt it was a ‘logical decision’ he said –

I used to work when I was at college unpacking boxes of Supreme at a company in London that distributed it when it was just starting out, so it’s something I’ve known all along in my life.

The collaboration apparently did not work out in favor of the parties involved. Guy Tebly from New York Times while commenting on the move called it the fashion equivalent of suicide.

You may think, in the case of the Louis Vuitton collaboration with Supreme, presented under a tent at the Palais Royal on Thursday, the only victim would be Supreme, the street-style label with a rabid fan base and seemingly bulletproof cool. Both parties appeared to take a hit in the fall 2017 collection presented by the designer Kim Jones. It was the fashion version of a murder-suicide.

Olive – The Saviour

Given the publicity that David Beckham and his adorable dog Olive are receiving right now, the collaboration has once again caught the attention of the public. People are now wondering if Olive has saved the day for Louis Vuitton.

Here’s something ironic. Not just Luis Vuitton and Supreme, but the Beckhams also hit a rough patch in the fashion line. David and Victoria Beckham were suspected of meeting a ten million pounds loss in the same year.

Well, turns out, Olive is quite the star. The cocker-spaniel even has her own instagram account! With the Beckham surname behind her, looks like Olive will go a long way.

Kim’s brave move

It seemed that Kim was laying low on social media, since the past few months. Sources say, that she had cut down on showcasing her bling online, due to a massive robbery that she suffered, way back in 2016. The robbery resulted in a loss of Kim’s jewellery, worth over $10 million. Ouch!

via GIPHY

A girls jewellery is close to her heart; almost like a best friend. Losing precious things like this must’ve definitely hurt her. The period of mourning and sobriety that followed was inevitable for Kim, we guess.
Thankfully, the star has made her comeback online, braving herself to show off the diamonds.

The comeback

A source close to the glamorous Kardashian revealed to People about why she has toned down the bling on her social media platforms

She was toned down and out of the public eye after the robbery, but eventually she realized she needs to live her life.
She has fun with fashion and style, and yes, it’s part of her image — to be glamorous and push boundaries. So she’s going to do it.

The picture of her latest accessory is perhaps the first in the last few years, that showcases Kim Kardashian’s jewellery collection. Billboard reported that her one of a kind teeth grill was crafted by Dolly Cohen, a dental technician who now designs eye-catching grillz.

The artist behind the grillz

Dolly even gave a small snippet of the process behind her grillz. In an interview with Vogue she said:

It’s all custom. Handmade. Just me making each one. I meet with every client first — it’s obligatory. I see their teeth, I give my ideas if somebody needs them, and I can do anything. And, I use metal for the mouth. Chromium chromate. It’s not precious but it’s perfect for the mouth. Then, I make a print, and — you know, the plat — and then I sculpt. The mold is made out of alginate — it’s sterile, for doctors. I fit it on their teeth. And then I use 18K gold only — yellow, or white.

Trump Inspired Lego Is Something You Don’t Want To Miss!

President Donald Trump is always in the news these days. Be it racist comments, sexist jokes or even an absolutely weird fixation for his daughter. Trump has kept the nation hanging by a thin thread of tolerance. Making headlines this time is a hilarious illustration of the man on a lego-set.

via GIPHY

Here’s What Happened

These are turbulent times with the President’s public disclosure and uncompromising stand to build a border wall between Mexico and the US. That’s why, one Canadian decided to lighten up the collective spirit.

Tiny Trump building tiny border wall from r/TinyTrumps

Chris, who goes by the name Balderdhash on Reddit, designed his first boderwall lego art a few years ago. He was apparently recovering from an illness at that time and chose to make use of the hours by brushing up his photoshop skills.

via GIPHY

Chris’ posts were first put up in the year 2017. His first ever lego set design was captioned, Tiny Trumps. The post garnered an impressive 1400 upvotes. In light of recent events, the 40 year old received much acclaim for his humorous depiction on Reddit.

The recent re circulation of my original post by others has inspired me to publish a few Tiny Wall Expansions sets that I made a while back. I present the Lego Tiny Add-Ons edition. from r/TinyTrumps

As recorded by Forbes, his Lego set cover-design has been re-posted multiple times and has now gone viral, with a proud 13000 upvotes!.

Recent Upheavel Over The Border

President Trump addressed the nation over the border wall initiative. According to many, his address included quite a number of lies. In fact, some citizens even took to online sites like Bookmaker.eu to bet on the number of lies in Trump’s formal speech.

How much more American blood must we shed before Congress does its job? This is a choice between right and wrong, justice and injustice. This is about whether we fulfill our sacred duty to the American citizens we serve.

President Donald Trump

Turns out 92 percent of the users’ piggy banks are receiving a total amount of $276,424. The winning bet being that the president would lie. The President’s speech addressed the difficulties that unlawful immigration caused. He even mentioned that it is the Hispanic Americans and African-Americans communities that suffer most due to this.

President Donal Trump

Finally, as part of an overall approach to border security, law enforcement professionals have requested $5.7 billion for a physical barrier. At the request of Democrats, it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall. This barrier is absolutely critical to border security. It’s also what our professionals at the border want and need. This is just common sense.

President Donald Trump

Balderdhash Saves The Day

The President’s speech definitely struck the sentiments of many people. Given the state of helplessness and anger the public felt, the trump lego art was a light moment everyone could share. At least it gave people a place to ‘laugh it off’.

via GIPHY

The post probably shows how the world feels about non-inclusiveness. Given that this post has gone viral, and that people are siding with it, maybe, the highlight and take home from this is the fact that most of us root for inclusiveness and peace.

Tech Company Only Recruits People Who Are Autistic

In a world where differences of culture, belief and existence are becoming broadly accepted; a welcome change has been brought about by a tech company. Auticon, is a technology service provider that strictly recruits only autism-affected staff.

Auticon Staff

Yes, their policies have bought a warm smile over many a person’s face. All their employees are autistic. If only that wasn’t enough, the staff consists of tech-savvy individuals who are even given training and personal adjustments to work comfortably on a daily basis.

Auticon

The National Autistic Society, states that only 16% of the worlds autistic population is employed. This has been so since the past decade. Thankfully, companies like Auticon are now setting new standards, as far as employment opportunities go, for this sect of society.

The company has branches in UK, US, Italy, France, Germany and Switzerland. Sources say that they plan to keep expanding their base and that they plan to have their next office in Scotland.

Staff at Auticon

Co-founder & COO at Auticon-UK, Viola Sommer, shed some light on why their company is breaking the internet. In an exclusive interview with UNILAD, she said:

Unfortunately lots of autistic people face some significant stereotypes. So when they apply to mainstream companies, lots of autistic people find it difficult to succeed in the general recruitment process.
Also once they’ve managed to secure a position, they often struggle to maintain it; due to a lack of understanding in reasonable adjustments in typical workplaces. Typical workplaces are often designed around neuro-typical people. Whereas autistic peoples’ brains are just wired differently. So we need to have a flexible working environment to work for the individual; and that doesn’t apply for the usual approach.

Viola Sommer

via GIPHY

Auticon’s speciality

Indeed; corporates so far, have not given much thought towards employing autistic people. It’s in fact a blessing that organisations like Auticon stood up to the challenge and changed the scenario. Auticon’s main priority is their employee’s comfort and they do everything to make sure that the staff is happy. What’s even better, is the fact that they lay emphasis on the individual rather than the collective body of workers.

We just treat everyone as an individual and we spend a lot of time to get to know our employees. To find out what kind of work environment they really need to thrive.

The reason behind exlcusive recruitment

Auticon – YouTube

Auticon-UK CEO Ray Coyle, said, “Individuals with autism have a very special set of skills. They are very good with attention to detail, error detection and sustained concentration.” He also added that their abilities in these sectors outdo the general neurotypical community.Wow!

At the moment I was out of work for two years and I am struggling with depression anxiety; and then I read an author in a paper. Look and see what they’re like. I liked the sound of what they were doing.

It’s amazing to see the lives that Auticon is changing. We hope 2019 is their big year and that the world sees an increased number of such organisations.

Elephants Evolve To Not Grow Tusks Due To Incessant Poaching

Be it man or animals, the need for survival has been paramount and at the forefront of everything we do. So why should elephants be any different? Turns out, ‘tuskless’ is becoming a common phenomenon among elephants. Scientists tell us why.

The War Effects

The civil war that gripped Mozambique for 15 long years has not just left its mark on the land and the minds of people, but also on the oldest herd of elephants. Having survived the long war that was partly financed by poached ivory, it comes as no surprise that the daughters of about one third of the surviving elephants are born toothless.

PC: Instagram/elephantvoices

Not many would know that almost 90 percent of the animals were killed – either to feed the hungry fighters or for ivory that fetched a fortune. Poaching has apparently, triggered an evolution among elephants causing them to give up their tusks. As opposed to previous statistics that suggested that only 2-4 per cent of African female elephants were born without tusks, the figures have changed after the war. The biological advantage that they get due to this trait in Gorongosa could be the reason for this evolution.

This Explains

More and more elephants are being born without tusks.
PC: Instagram/elephantsalive

Dominique D’Emille Correia Gonçalves, ecologist and conservation biologist throws light on this subject. As reported by the Mail Online, he said: “Ivory poaching targets big tusked animals, so it removes the ‘big tusk’ gene out of the population. The elephant population today is derived from most of the elephants who survived the war, where they were heavily poached for their tusks. The key explanation is that in Gorongosa National Park, the tuskless elephants were the ones which eluded poaching during the civil war and passed this trait onto many of their daughters. These tuskless elephants are growing from the survivors of poaching, so while we are not talking about evolution yet, we could be talking about the removal of certain genes from the population.”

The Staggering Statistics

Reports suggest that Gorongosa was inhabited by about 4000 elephants in the late 70s but the numbers dwindled to a huge extent post the war. As per Joyce Poole’s recent (yet to be published) research, 51 percent of the 200 known adult females who are war survivors and aged 25 or more, are tuskless. And that’s not all. 32 percent of females born post war are tuskless.

PC: Twitter/rickygervais

Poole is an elephant behavior expert and National Geographic Explorer, and has interesting insights to offer about this evolution. She explains, “A male elephant’s tusks are bigger and heavier than those of a female of the same age. But once there’s been heavy poaching pressure on a population, then the poachers start to focus on the older females as well. Over time, with the older age population, you start to get this really higher proportion of tuskless females.”

Not Just Mozambique

Countries that have witnessed heavy poaching for ivory have noticed this shift as well. In South Africa, this shift in female survivors and their daughters is significant. Statistics pertaining to the Addo Elephant National Park in the early 2000s indicate that 98 percent of the 174 females were tuskless.

PC: Instagram/elephantvoices

Tusks have an important role to play in the lives of elephants since they help them dig the ground for water or minerals, scrape the bark off trees and even compete for mates. However, with survival mode on, these animals are modifying themselves to become tuskless. While it may help them against poaching, it’s not ideal. As reported by BBC, “…an elephant without tusks is a crippled elephant”.

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Expecting Their Fourth Child

TV star, entrepreneur, socialite, fashion icon – Kim Kardashian plays many a roles effortlessly. However, the one that she speaks about with immense pride is that of being a mother! She has recently revealed that she and Kanye are expecting their fourth child via a surrogate. And guess what? It’s a boy! Now, are we not super excited?!

Kim Kardashian on Instagram
PC: Instagram/kimkardashian

It’s A Boy

Although there had been news about the couple expecting a baby in the month of May, there were no confirmations per se from the couple. As reported by E!Online, a source has confirmed the news and said, “The surrogate is well into the pregnancy and she is due in May and everything looks good.” But now we know it’s going to be a boy.

Kim Kardashian Reveals The Details

Kim revealed the big news on Andy Cohen’s show Watch What Happens Live. While speaking about the pregnancy she revealed, “I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and I told some people. I can’t remember who I told because I never get drunk.” A jubilant Kim confirmed it was going to be a boy. Kim was on the show with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe.

Why Surrogacy?

The couple had used a surrogate for their third child as well. If you remember, Kim was pretty private about the news of her third child and chose to reveal it only during the hugely popular show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Her pregnancy struggles are well know and documented. They weren’t easy and she had placenta accreta during both her pregnancies, a condition wherein the placenta attaches to the uterine wall, albeit too deeply.

My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!!! My mom was crying; she had never seen anything like this before. My delivery was fairly easy, but then going through that—it was the most painful experience of my life!

Kim Kardashian

Considering that it was medically unsafe for her to deliver another baby, she obviously had to choose surrogacy once again.

A Big, Happy Family

The fourth pregnancy does not really come as a surprise considering that Kim had dropped a hint earlier on Live with Kelly and Ryan. “I would have maybe one more [child],” she said. “I really, really enjoyed the surrogacy process,” Kim had confessed. “I enjoyed the surrogacy process. When it came time to breastfeed, I realized it was the best decision I have made — it’s a game changer. I can spend so much more time with the older kids, getting them used to the new baby,” she had said.

George RR Martin Teases GOT Fans With News

GOT fans are counting days for their favorite show to return with the final season. This season has been long awaited and will have our favorites fighting for the throne. Who wins is something that everyone is constantly speculating. Also, we don’t have just one favorite, do we?! Amidst talks and discussions and fan theories, iconic writer and father of GOT, George RR Martin has managed to tease us with his latest tweets.

Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen
PC: Inverse.com

Are We Ready?

As per the ‘A song of Ice and Fire’ author, not only will there be a long Game of Thrones trailer, but also a teaser. Fans are going crazy post his tweet. It has already received countless likes and comments, and is being constantly retweeted. Martin has also included the link to the recently released teaser by HBO confirming 14th April as the release date.

Fan Theory

If you are a diehard GOT fan, you must have already seen the latest teaser. Taking the world by storn, it showed the Starks in the crypts underneath Winterfell. It’s the place where their ancestors lie buried. As Jon, Arya and Sansa walk through the crypts they come across three statues. What is causing greater concern is the way the statues look. The statues are that of Sansa, Arya and Jon. What has caught our attention is the fact that Jon’s statue looks older than his sisters’. Also, not to forget, the place looked as if life had been sucked out of it. This strongly suggests that the White Walkers are heading south.

Although it’s evident that the presence of the statues in the crypts indicates that the three will die, there is a strong possibility that Jon will die after his sisters. This is what one of the fans had to say and we kind of agree with the possibility.

Omg I think I get it! I have a theory! Those are statues of the dead right? Arya’s & Sans a look like them are that age because they die at that age. Jon’s statue is old because he lives to old age and bran isn’t there because he’s going to be immortal or some shit.

When’s The Final Book Releasing Martin?

What’s interesting is that Martin has refused to say anything further keeping the fans guessing. Naturally, some fans were eager to know when he planned to release his final book, Winds of Winter. A fan commented, “Hopefully the next book is out at some point not too long after the show is over. The show is amazing, but there’s always so much more depth in books that shows don’t have the time to delve into”. Yet another user added, “Where’s the Winds of Winter though?”

Jon Snow
PC: Bustle.com

The book is expected to release next year and would be the penultimate one of the series. In an exclusive interview with the Guardian earlier, Martin had said, “I’ve been struggling with it for a few years. The Winds of Winter is not so much a novel as a dozen novels, each with a different protagonist, each having a different cast of supporting players, antagonists, allies and lovers around them, and all of these weaving together against the march of time in an extremely complex fashion. So it’s very, very challenging. Fire and Blood by contrast was very simple. Not that it’s easy – it still took me years to put together – but it is easier.”

Let’s see which new clues wait upon us in the new trailer.

Innovations That Took Our Breath Away. The Round Up For CES 2019

2019 began with a bang, what with some really exciting innovations from the tech world ready to wow us. The consumer electronics show, CES had so much to showcase that we had a tough time picking up our favorites from the gaggle of innovative gadgets. A sensory overload and next level innovation were the highlights of the show as it wrapped yet another year in Las Vegas, displaying the best to awe us.

Self-driving cars, big-screen TVs, robots, virtual-reality headsets, next-generation wireless networks, and intelligent virtual assistants were just a few among the many that stole the show. Excitement was expected as the 2.7 million square feet space dazzled with the coolest tech toys thanks to over 4,500 exhibitors at the event.

Here are the top picks from the roll out.

5G

With all of us having smartphone-loving hands, a transition to 5G is just what we need. Although Verizon and AT&T are already there, even if it means operating within extremely limited active networks, the fact remains that the transition to 5G is not going to be a smooth sail. We may be months away from it, but we certainly hope it would be worth the wait.

5G Rollout – CES 2019

It wouldn’t be long before devices could download a movie in seconds. Some tech companies are exploring partnerships with Apple so as to bring some of its content and virtual assistant capabilities to their products and devices.

Virtual assistance every step of the way

We may have been in utter awe when Amazon Basics microwave oven came with Alexa assistance. Taking the game several notches higher, companies are going all out to put Alexa, Siri, Bixby and Google Assistance into everything from beds to toilets ensuring that your living space becomes absolutely smart.

CES 2019 – Day 1

Gaming Laptops

The past few years didn’t see much hype on the computer front and attention largely remained on smartphones and tablets. This year, it was however the laptops that made a lot of noise, especially the gaming ones.

Best Laptops CES 2019

Amazingly thin and incredibly innovative, the laptops were not just light and powerful, but wonderfully weird. Case in point? The Alienware Area 51m that lets u swap its CPU and GPU like conventional computers. The 17-inch, 8.5 pound notebook is of course a little heavier than its sub-five counterparts, but it gives you the much-needed customizability. So you can customize, upgrade and yet have it all in a sleek design.

A virtual butler

Meet Walker – the 4.7-foot, 170-pound humanoid style white and gold robot that can clasp objects, climb stairs and do so much more. Walker can pull out a drink from the fridge, grab some chips and walk up to you when you get back home and even entertain you.

Robotic Butler – CES 2019

It can remember your appointments and even assist you with day-to-day chores based on climate and other things. So if it’s raining outside, count on Walker to tell you about it and even give you an umbrella. While it’s still in the prototype version, UBTech definitely has got our hopes up. Talk about having a helping hand.

Get ready for 8K TVs

While OLED and LCD with 4K and HDR have become pretty common, TV technology has now moved on to 8K. The innovation has come about in terms of size and display. The clear winner was the sleek, roll-up OLED from LG that simply disappears into its stand when not in use; freeing up more space and improving aesthetics.

85-inch and 98-inch 8K TVs are also here to entice you, though the price may seem ridiculously expensive to many.
