    Production house withdraws cheating case against Shruti Haasan

    Actress Shruti Haasan heaved a sigh of relief after a production house withdrew cheating case against her.

    Picture House Media, a leading production company, on Monday withdrew a cheating case it had filed against Shruti Haasan last month for walking out of one of their upcoming yet-untitled Telugu-Tamil bilingual projects.

    "The case was withdrawn after Tamil Film Producers Council (TPFC) and South Indian Film Artists Association (SIAA) intervened and settled the issue amicably," read a statement.

    "Shruti is very thankful for the intervention of SIAA on the matter as the lawyer sided with her cause due to harassment meted out to her. Thanks to the support of the industry bodies, she has also decided to withdraw the defamation claim against the producers for misrepresentation and revealing misleading facts to the media," Shruti's spokesperson told IANS.

    Keeping this issue in mind, TPFC and SIAA said that artistes should work in tandem with the producers and not cause heavy losses to them because of their irresponsible acts.

    Actress Tamannaah Bhatia has replaced Shruti in the project, which also features Akkineni Nagarjuna and Karthi. It is being directed by Vamsi Paidipalli.

    Shruti is currently busy promoting her Hindi film Gabbar Is Back opposite Akshay Kumar.

    Amala Paul and Kajal Aggarwal designer Gaurang Shah's newest fans

    Having found a fan following in leading ladies of Bollywood like Sonam Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Kirron Kher and a host of other actress, Gaurang Shah's creations are now wooing popular stars from the south like Kajal Aggarwal and Amala Paul.

    Kajal Aggarwal and Amala Paula are the newest fans of Gaurang Shah.

    When Amala Paul wore a green floor length khadi Anarkali, with zardosi embroidery from Shah's "Chandbali' creation with a Kanjeevaram dupatta at a recent launch, she couldn't stop her admiration for the handwoven creation and said in a statement: "Love this creation of pure elegance!! You are a true genius Gaurang. Thank you."

    What charmed Kajal was Shah's grey tie dye ikkat Kanjeevaram saree with a traditional yellow border inspired from the 16th century temple art. The sari she wore recently for a launch was a pure amalgamation of traditional korvai weaving of Kanchipuram and contemporary ikkat of Andhra Pradesh.

    "My collections are in admiration of the women blazing the trail in fashion, they truly inspire fashion trends and I am really pleased the gorgeous looking Kajal and Amala have worn these exquisitely crafted dresses by me and expressed their appreciation for hand-woven designs," Shah said in a statement.

    "It will certainly take traditional wear one notch up in the fashion consumer souk and inspire the young generation to indulge in these all occasion handcrafted fashion creations," he added.

    Shah's passion is to constantly reintroduce vintage Indian fashion with a whole new modern outlook both in the ramp and in the mark

    OnePlus One now available without invite on Amazon

    Chinese tech start up OnePlus has announced that its popular One smartphone will be available for purchase without invites in India starting Monday, April 20 2015. No longer will customers in India require an invite to buy the OnePlus One.

    The offer that is applicable to both the 64GB Sandstone Black and the 16GB Silk White variants is part of OnePlus's one year anniversary celebration of the One handset.

    The OnePlus One is available for buy via Amazon at Rs.18,999 for the 16GB variant and Rs.21,999 for the 64GB one.

    According to OnePlus, the company's "overall global customer support has improved with a ramp up of additional resources and after-sales services through bespoke trainings and improved processes."

    Improved logistics means the company now has more units to sell, unlike before when its availability was subject to demand.

    "By rigorously testing and improving our logistical structure over the last one year, we are far more confident that our processes have matured enough for us to handle the increased production and after-sales support that comes along with opening up sales. It's what we've been working towards, and now we're ready." said Carl Pei, co-founder and head of global at OnePlus.

    The move is also likely directed towards selling as many One units as possible, before its second generation handset is launched, which is expected sometime in the third quarter of this year.

    In addition, the company is also offering a flat 50 per cent off on any one of the following: OnePlus JBL E1+ Earphones, Flip Cover (White) or Premium Matte Screen Protector along with the purchase of the One until April 23, 2015.

    OnePlus recently started rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop based Cyanogen OS 12 to the One smartphone. The update brings features like the App Themer and gesture controls to the OnePlus One along with premium version of the app Boxer email.

    It's Never Too Late To Restart Your Career

    In May 2013, I found myself on a beach with a toddler and an infant in tow, attending yet another wedding. My older son was 3 ½ years old then and the younger one was all of six months. They were both down with colds, cranky and behaving like anything but the model children I had planned to raise. My reaction didn't help. I was blowing the entire situation out of proportion because I viewed their behaviour as the end result of the last three years of my life. It was then that I realised that I was placing the burden of my lofty ambitions on the little shoulders of my children. I realised that it was about time I got back to being the person I used to be: it was time to restart my career.

    I am the first-born to my parents which meant they always pushed me to excel in everything I pursued. True to their expectations, I stood second in Maharashtra in the 10th grade I.C.S.E. exams, graduated with honours from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and decided to bring the Advanced Placement Program to India, founding my first venture Paragon right after I graduated and becoming the College Board representative of India.

    Marriage then moved me to Bangalore and resulted in the untimely closing down of Paragon. I then joined Kemwell, a leading contract manufacturer of bio/pharmaceuticals, where I became involved in Finance, Marketing and HR. Work and I remained inextricably interconnected, and I couldn't imagine a day when we could be separated.
    That's when my first-born came along and a baby gave birth to a mother. For the first time, I became aware of the differences between a man and a woman. Suddenly, I became the primary caretaker of this tiny precious life and I was overwhelmed. The same dedication and zeal that I had centred around my studies and work up until then, I now centred upon my baby. He became the focus of my being and I decided I wanted a sabbatical from everything else.

    My sabbatical extended from months to years, during which I gave birth to my second son. Each new life changes the lives of those around him or her and suddenly, my entire perspective changed. The second time around, motherhood seemed like a piece of cake. I realised I could do more and I wanted to do more. I realised I had become a person I didn't recognise (or like very much) anymore. I realised it was time to get back to work.

    Inseparable Goat Friends Show Love Can Conquer Cruelty

    Two baby goats that were rescued from a New Jersey farm earlier this month are now inseparable playmates.

    “I would never dream of splitting them up,” Leanne Lauricella, 41, told The Huffington Post about the goats, Petal and Ansel. “They curl up and sleep together. They think they’re brother and sister.”

    Lauricella is a volunteer for The Barnyard Sanctuary, a refuge in Columbia, New Jersey, for abused and displaced farm animals. After the local animal control department was tipped off to allegations of animal abuse on a privately owned property in the area, the sanctuary partnered with officials to rescue nearly 200 animals from the dire living situation.

    “I didn’t notice anything when I first walked into the house,” The Barnyard Sanctuary Director Tamala Lester said, describing the eerie scene she found when she arrived at the property. “It was very neat and tidy. There was just a strange smell in the air -- you couldn’t really tell what it was. The house was normal, until [officials] said, ‘Go back into the bedrooms.”

    There she found emaciated animals -- mostly infants -- living without adequate food and water among the dead bodies of other animals. A second property owned by the same people housed many more starving, sick and dying animals living among carcasses, officials say.

    The sanctuary took in around 150 of the survivors, but two goats, only days old, needed special care.

    Scientists have figured out how dogs make us fall in love with them
    2 1

    When people call their dogs their "fur babies," they may be onto something, at least on a chemical level.

    Dogs that make so-called puppy eyes at their owners get a spike in the "love hormone" oxytocin — and their owners do too, according to a new study. This same positive feedback in oxytocin release occurs when a mom gazes at her newborn infant, studies have shown.

    Because dogs don't otherwise use eye contact as a way to cement bonds with other dogs, the study researchers suggest that man's best friend may have gotten its prized place in human hearts by tapping into an ancient human bonding pathway.

    "We humans use eye gaze for affiliative communications, and are very much sensitive to eye contact," study co-author Takefumi Kikusui, a professor of veterinary medicine at the Companion Animal Research Lab at Azabu University in Japan, said in an email.

    "Therefore, the dogs who can use eye gaze to the owner efficiently would have more benefits from humans."

    Loving feeling:-

    Oxytocin, often called the "love hormone," performs various actions in humans, such as triggering the onset of labor, reducing stress and helping group members recognize individual members.

    But in all mammals, one of its key roles is to help a parent and infant bond. For instance, when rodent pups are separated from their moms, they emit a series of ultrasonic noises that spur moms to release more oxytocin and to scoop up their pups and behave in a more nurturing way. This, in turn, leads to the release of more oxytocin and, as a result, more attachment behavior in pups.

    In humans, both moms and babies get a spike in oxytocin during breast-feeding, and they will spend hours gazing at each other, each fueling the release of oxytocin in the other, various studies have suggested.

    For domesticated dogs and wolves, however, eye contact isn't normally a bonding behavior. Rather, dominant dogs stare down canines lower in the group's hierarchy, and pups that are nervous will look away, said Evan MacLean, an evolutionary anthropologist at Duke University who was not involved in the new study.

    Gazing behavior:-

    Kikusui and his colleagues wondered exactly what dogs are getting out of their affectionate gazing at humans. In the new study, which is detailed today (April 16) in the journal Science, the team measured the oxytocin levels of dogs and their owners before and after the pairs spent 30 minutes together.

    After the owners spent quality time gazing into their dogs' eyes, petting and talking to the furballs, both the people and dogs showed increases in the levels of oxytocin in their urine. What's more, the more oxytocin rose in humans, the more it did in dogs as well.

    In similar experiments with wolves, the researchers found no such interspecies-oxytocin loop — even though the wolves were interacting with people who had raised them from pups.

    In a second experiment, the researchers spritzed an oxytocin nasal spray into dogs' nostrils and found that female dogs stared longer at their owners afterward, and that both the pups and the humans showed a rise in oxytocin as a result.

    The findings suggest that the oxytocin feedback loop can cross species boundaries, at least between man and his best friend.

    "This tells us something about our relationships with dogs," MacLean, who wrote a Perspectives article in the same issue of Science, told Live Science. "In many ways, they're similar to our relationships with people."
    Partners in evolutionary change

    The findings may help explain one of the most puzzling stories in human history: how a predatory, fearsome wolf transformed into man's best friend. Kikusui speculated that, at some point early in the domestication of dogs, a small group of naturally more friendly dogs may have gazed at their human counterparts for bonding. In doing so, the dogs unwittingly tapped into the natural human system designed for parent-child bonding.

    Humans and dogs may have co-evolved this ability in order for love to flourish across species, Kikusui speculated. In follow-up research, they hope to identify the genes involved, in both humans and dogs.

    MacLean, however, doesn't think humans necessarily needed to undergo genetic changes to get an oxytocin boost when they lock eyes with their canine companions.

    "Originally, this kind of bonding mechanism was very important between mother and infant, and then we've probably already recycled those same mechanisms in our relationships with other individuals," MacLean said. Therefore, the human ability to bond via eye contact is already very flexible and easily repurposed, he added.

    Dropped your phone in water? 5 things to do

    It has happened to the best of us: accidentally dropping a smartphone in water and then frantically trying anything and everything to recover it. But worry not, help is here. We tell you how best you can save your smartphone if it has taken a dip in water...

    Switch it off:-
    Since chances are that your phone was powered on when you dropped it in water, it is advisable to switch it off immediately after taking it out. Switching the phone off will prevent any short circuits from damaging the internals of the phone.

    Remove everything:-
    After switching off the phone, start removing everything possible from the phone. Remove the battery, sim cards, memory cards as well as any accessory (stylus, case, cover, skin). You can easily wipe these off with a dry cloth so that no water remains on these items.

    Shake it off:-
    Gently shake the phone to get rid of any water present in the headphone jack, charging port or under the physical buttons. After this, wipe the phone with a dry cloth, toilet paper or paper napkins thoroughly to remove any water present on the exterior.

    Bury it in rice:-
    This is one of the most commonly used and known techniques. Get an airtight container or a ziplock bag and fill it with uncooked rice. Place your phone inside the rice, shut the ziplock bag/container tight and keep it in a dry place. You can also try using oatmeal or silica gel packs.

    Wait it out:-
    Leave the phone in the rice for at least 24 to 48 hours. Ideally, do not even try to take the phone out to check if it has started working or not. If there wasn't too much water damage, your phone should start working.

    If it still doesn't work:-
    Please keep in mind that there is no guarantee that your phone will survive a dunking in water. There is only a 50% chance of your phone working again. In case the phone does not work even after trying out the rice method, take it to an authorized service centre. They will be able to dismantle your phone and assess the damage better. Remember that water damage is not covered in the standard

    Be prepared:-
    There are a couple of ways of preventing your phone from getting damaged by water in the first place. If you are travelling in the rainy season or going to a beach/swimming pool, then you can get a waterproof carry pouch. They are available for as little as Rs 150 from e-commerce websites. These pouches have a transparent window which allow you to see incoming notifications.

    Get insurance:-
    While standard warranty does not cover water damage, there are third party insurance services available now that offer such coverage. There are various options available, we recommend you try out Ingram Micro Cover Plus or Syska Gadget Secure. They have plans starting at Rs 500. You can choose what all you need cover for, including liquid damage.
