Anurag Kashyap shuts all those calling Newton a copy of Secret Ballot with one tweet

Anurag Kashyap shuts all those calling Newton a copy of Secret Ballot with one tweet!

Amit Masurkar’s Rajkummar Rao starrer Newton is like a ray of hope in this disaster that 2017 has been at the box-office. The film is being raved by the masses and critics alike. 

And it was a delight for all when it was annouced that Newton is India’s official entry for the Oscars. So much so that people have been rushing to the movie halls to watch it over the weekend. 
 
But no sooner, news of it being a copy or Iranian film Secret Ballot started floating around and trollers added their bit to the drama.
 
Anurag Kashyap, clearly annoyed by it all gave a fitting reply to all he haters. 
 
He wrote, “Newton is an award winner from Berlin Fest and I can promise you those curators watch more films in a year than rest of us do in a lifetime.” 
 
And that’s how it’s done!

Varun Dhawan Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu play dandiya with Falguni Pathak

This post was originally published on this site
Falguni Pathak is to dandiya during Navratri what Salman Khan is to the box-office during Eid… if you get the drift. She’s the reigning queen of live concerts during the auspicious festival of Navratri for years. And what better than promoting a film at one of her shows? 
 
The Judwaa 2 trio Varun Dhawan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu spent their Saturday night playing garba on stage with Falguni Pathak at her navratri show in Mumbai. From the pictures, they sure as hell had a blast promoting their upcoming film. The three were dressed in desi ensemlbes and were in their best festive element. 
 
Varun and Jacqueline later headed to the grand Ambani bash.

Sonam Kapoor returns to Mumbai to shoot the Dutt biopic with Ranbir Kapoor

This post was originally published on this site
Sonam Kapoor made her way back to Mumbai from Delhi wearing a creation from her brand Rheson. The cold-shoulder powder blue maxi ft. polka dots looked ah-mazing on the fashionista. She paired it with a Chanel clutch and black kolhapuris. Simple wavy hair and a hint of blue eye shadow, she looked like a dream and surely stunned the onlookers at the aiport.

The actress was shooting for Veere Di Wedding in the capital and is back to Mumbai to kick-start her second schedule of Ranbir Kapoor’s Dutt biopic. Sonam’s last stint at the box-office was her critically acclaimed Neerja. The actress then took a break for a couple of months travelling with beau Anand Ahuja. But now that she’s back in action… we’re wating to see her on the big screen.

Leave It To the Dutch to Make Rain Barrels Attractive

This post was originally published on this site

Rainwater harvesting usually conjures images of farms or developing countries. But the process of collecting and storing runoff is becoming a popular practice among home and business owners.

Now, anyone can hoard free water with Raindrop—the IKEA equivalent of a water barrel.

Created by Dutch designer Bas van der Veer in 2009, and produced by local pottery company Elho in 2011, a revamped version was unveiled during this month’s Spoga Gafa garden trade fair in Germany.

Redesigned “from the ground up” with major technical updates, as well as new colors and finishes, the Raindrop goes on sale at garden centers, DIY shops, and online starting early next year.

Choose from different colors and finishes (via Bas van der Veer)

Simply fit the rotund device onto any drainpipe (between 50mm and 80mm thick), then watch as the built-in watering can gather H2O automatically when it rains.

“This way, the user doesn’t have to fill the can with our precious tap water, but uses ‘free’ rainwater instead,” the product page said. “With the small tap at the bottom of the barrel, the watering can be refilled after using it.”

Complementary and relatively clean, rainwater is ideal for washing your car or pet, filling a backyard pool, and hand-watering the lawn.

Tap into your personal rainwater supply (via Bas van der Veer)

Not everyone has the luxury of an expansive garden, though. For those folks with a green thumb and a balcony, Bas van der Veer also offers the Pure Raindrop Mini—a smaller version of the Raindrop.

The same concept applies: rain collects in the can, user waters plants, the planet gets to live another day.

Looking for something more heavy duty? The firm’s Pure Rain barrel boasts a capacity of 125 liters and—get this!—a bird-bath lid. Because what’s better than communing with nature as you fill up a watering can?

The sleek receptacle is specifically designed to coordinate with Elho’s Pure range of handmade gardening products.

Anyone can go green by harvesting rainwater. But, as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency notes: Remember that pollutants may be picked up in the flowing liquid; consider filtering your water before drinking it or using it to irrigate edible plants.

Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

The best air purifier

This post was originally published on this site

By Tim Heffernan and John Holecek

This post was done in partnership with The Sweethome, a buyer’s guide to the best homewares. When readers choose to buy The Sweethome’s independently chosen editorial picks, it may earn affiliate commissions that support its work. Read the full article here.

After carrying out 300 hours of research, three lab tests in the past four years, and a new weeklong real-world test encompassing 18 purifiers, we’re more confident than ever that the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty is the best air purifier for most people.

Who should get this

Despite prolific marketing to the contrary, scientific studies do not support claims that air purifiers improve your health, in part because it’s exceptionally difficult to disentangle their impact from the many other factors that influence your health. There is, however, overwhelming evidence that breathing particulate pollution can exacerbate asthma, allergies, heart disease, and other medical conditions. And removing particulates is a job HEPA-rated air purifiers excel at.

How we picked and tested

For this guide, we focused on portable air purifiers, which is a blanket term for any purifier not installed directly into your home HVAC system. Several criteria guided our selection:

  • We required true HEPA certification (the US definition), which means an air filter removes 99.97 percent or more of airborne particles of 0.3 micron diameter.
  • Generally, each air purifier had to be rated for at least 350 square feet—bigger than the average living room. We did test one inexpensive purifier rated for spaces smaller than 150 feet in response to reader feedback.
  • Each air purifier should cycle all the air in a room at least twice per hour, and ideally four or five times.

Based on these criteria, we’ve surveyed hundreds of models, read dozens of editorial reviews, and tested 18 air purifiers since 2014. This year, we conducted two tests. First, John Holecek re-created his 2016 lab tests, measuring factors like filtration speed and efficiency, noise level, and ownership cost over time. Read more about John’s tests in detail in our full guide to air purifiers.

In the second test, Tim Heffernan used seven air purifiers for a week in a 200-square-foot room in a New York City apartment. This helped us form a detailed picture of how each air purifier performed in the real world. The week he ran the tests was one of the worst of the year in terms of air pollution, with numerous health advisories related to outdoor air quality. Learn more about Tim’s tests in our full guide.

Our pick: Coway AP-1512HH Mighty

Photo: Michael Hession

After three tests in the lab, one in a New York City apartment, and three years of in-home use, we are more confident than ever that the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty is the best air purifier for most people. It’s one of the best-performing air purifiers we’ve ever tested, and has maintained that level of performance for several years. On long-term costs, it’s also one of the cheapest air purifiers we’ve tested, costing just $600 to buy and run 24/7 for five years.

In terms of measured particle removal, the Coway is very nearly the best we’ve tested. In our 2016 lab test, it purified better than all but two units (the differences were marginal), and in the 2017 lab test, it again outperformed the competition, reducing particulates to as little as 12 percent of the initial level in just 20 minutes. It performed just as well in the 2017 New York City apartment test, reducing particulate pollution to less than 20 percent of the starting level in 20 minutes—again, better than all but two much pricier models, and the differences marginal.

We ran our original test model virtually nonstop for two years without replacing the filter—twice the length of time Coway recommends—and it still worked as well as it did on day one. That’s not hyperbole: In 2016 we measured its performance using both the original and new filters, and found no significant difference.

Runner-up: Winix 5500-2

If the Coway AP-1512HH Mighty is unavailable, the Winix 5500-2 is a close runner-up. It, too, is HEPA-certified and rated to 350 square feet. In our 2016 lab test, it slightly outperformed the Coway, reducing particulate levels to 10 percent of their initial levels, versus 12 percent for the Coway. We prefered the Coway because of its aesthetics, proven long-term performance, and lower five-year purchase-and-operating cost: The Winix costs roughly $180 more, or $36 per year, to run than the Coway.

Upgrade: Coway Airmega 300

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you need to purify the air in a seriously large space, we recommend Coway’s Airmega 300. It’s HEPA-certified to clear spaces of roughly 500 square feet at five complete air changes per hour, or 1,250 square feet at two complete air changes. Its unique twin filters permit very high airflow, allowing it to rapidly filter large volumes of air. Although the Airmega is a great machine for large, open rooms, it’s quite expensive, setting you back about $1,200 to run 24/7 for five years. That’s almost exactly twice the cost of the Coway—and if you need to clean (for example) a bedroom and a living room, two Coways would be a better choice.

Also great: Austin Air HealthMate Standard HM-400

Photo: Austin Air

Most air purifiers (including our picks) claim to reduce VOCs, odors, and molecular-sized pollution that’s far smaller than the particulates a HEPA filter can catch. But only the Austin truly delivers that claim, with a 15-pound activated-carbon filter that easily outperformed all other air purifiers (their thin, lightweight activated-charcoal filters proved far too small to make a meaningful difference). In our tests for VOC/odor/molecular-pollution removal, the Austin reduced a heavy load of ethanol vapors to 13 percent of the starting level within 20 minutes, performing twice as well as the nearest competitor. This is a big reason FEMA and the Red Cross deployed Austin Air units for at Ground Zero after 9/11.

The Austin is also a very solid performer on particulates, reducing them to less than 20 percent of starting levels after 30 minutes on high in our real-world test and to 50 percent on low. However, the dense carbon filter means it consumes more electricity than our pick. Its five-year cost is about $1,300, more than double the price of the Coway.

Budget pick: GermGuardian AC4825

Photo: Michael Hession

If you need to use a purifier only in a bedroom, small office, or dorm room, the GermGuardian AC4825 is a decent choice. It’s rated for 156 square feet of space, but in our 350-square-foot lab, it still reduced particulates by about 80 percent, and by about 70 percent in the 200-square-foot NYC apartment (compared with approximately 87 percent by the Coway in both spaces; 30-minute tests, on the high setting). It’s cheaper up front than the Coway, but costlier long-term: about $740 to run for five years, or roughly $140 more. So it’s a budget pick only if you plan to use it short-term, or if you aren’t paying the utility bill (as in an office or dorm).

Youâve got to check out the boots Priyanka Chopra wore for the Global Citizen Festival

This post was originally published on this site
Like we’ve mentioned earlier it’s hard to keep up with Priyanka Chopra’s hectic shedule. After a brief trip to Mumbai, she headed to Jordan, then to the Emmy’s, then to the UN assembly and her current pit stop is NYC (her temp home). Priyanka, who is UNICEF’s global goodwill ambassador, hosted the Global Citizen Festival eariler today and stunned the crowd with her sass. No surprises there, no?

What was surprising was her choice of outfit though. She donned a gorgeous floral sheath dress but it was the boots that were thee real deal. She literally matched her thigh high boots to the dress – yes, the exact same print! And boy, are we loving it. Messy hair and muted make-up rounded off the ballsy look. While we’d give it a perfect 10, what about you?

Too hot or too much?

Happy Birthday, Barbara Gordon!

This weekend is the birthday of a Batman Family favorite, Barbara Gordon! With her movie debut coming ever closer, I’d like to talk about her history, identifies, and future.

Some fans might not realize that Barbara Gordon was actually created for TV similar to Harley Quinn in Batman: The Animated Series. She was created by William Dozier, Julie Schwartz, and Carmine Infantino for the live action Batman series with Adam West at the request of producers and played by actress Yvonne Craig. She premiered in Detective Comics #359 in 1967 by Gardner Fox and Batgirl co-creator Carmine Infantino.

Daughter of Commissioner Gordon, Barbara had unique insight and access to help fight crime and assist Batman. Similar to Supergirl (whose birthday was yesterday), Batgirl was bounced around different books over the years and never quite launched into her own title. Also similar to Supergirl, by the 80’s DC Comics decided the only thing they could do with Barbara is have her be attacked, though this time not lethally.

In the infamous story The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, Barbara is shot by The Joker and left paralyzed. Rather than just writing off the character, John Ostrander, Kim Yale, and Luke McDonnell reintroduced Barbara in 1989 as Oracle in Suicide Squad #23. Now in a wheelchair, Barbara’s role shifted to being a watcher and master strategist as one of the most important supporting characters in DC Comics.

In 2011, the New 52 reintroduced Barbara as Batgirl having her recover from her wounds in The Killing Joke which is how she remains today. Though many fans are thrilled to have the old Barbara back, many others were sad to see Oracle go and lose such an important disabled icon in comics. Both are perfectly understandable positions to hold.

So celebrate Barbara Gordon today! Watch some Batman 66, pick up some great comics by people like John Ostrander and Gail Simone, or the current Batgirl Rebirth trade!

Check out Karisma and Kareena Kapoor Khans monochrome affair at the Ambani bash

Nita Ambani and daughter Isha Ambani threw a lavish bash last night for Natalia Vodianova, model and founder of the Naked Heart Foundation, at Antilia. We already told you that Kareena Kapoor Khan stunned us with her black magic and now it’s time to focus on the sister. Karisma Kapoor flaunted her love for monochrome. Lolo picked a ruffled black and white number for the big bash. Adding a pop of color to her outfit was her clutch that read PARTY – the mood for the night. A red pout, sleeked out hair and pointed pumps finished out her party look. Both the sisters posed for the shutterbugs and gave us all some high on glam pictures to oogle at. Major love for the Kapoor sisters and their style mantra. Did you check out the other Kapoor sisters, though?
