The Celebrities Who Are Cleaning Their Own Homes In Lockdown
During the current coronavirus crisis, sales of cleaning products have doubled as we become more stringent about cleaning.

This may not have been out of choice, but we do appreciate seeing them on social media, sharing their cleaning struggles.
Green Your Ride: Should You Buy An Electric Vehicle?
By Lucy Yardley
If you worry about the effect of climate change on the environment, then perhaps you should consider going electric for your next vehicle. Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming a common sight in the US, with the number of EVs on our roads expected to reach just under 19 million by 2030. EVs are better for the environment, producing fewer air pollutants and greenhouse gases compared to cars that run on gas. They can even save you money, too.
Celebrities Utilizing Psychics In All Aspects Of Their Lives

While they might not be overly popular with the general public, there’s one group of individuals that turn to psychics in their droves: celebrities.

But just how do celebrities benefit from psychics in a way that others don’t?

A train journey and two names to remember
By Leena Sarma
Of two co-travellers who surprised the writer with their graciousness, 24 years ago.
It was the summer of 1990. As Indian Railway (Traffic) Service probationers, my friend and I travelled by train from Lucknow to Delhi. Two MPs were also travelling in the same bogie. That was fine, but the behaviour of some 12 people who were travelling with them without reservation was terrifying. They forced us to vacate our reserved berths and sit on the luggage, and passed obscene and abusive comments. We cowered in fright and squirmed with rage. It was a harrowing night in the company of an unruly battalion; we were on edge, on the thin line between honour and dishonour. All other passengers seemed to have vanished, along with the Travelling Ticket Examiner.
A Thrilling Robbery Near Kakori.
These words inspired the revolutionaries.
And they proved these lines on an interesting date- August 9, 1925.
That historical evening of August 9, 1925…
“3 second class Lucknow!” A young man said, while giving the money for the tickets in the ticket counter.

Whose Role Model was Hitler?
Yesterday I heard a few extracts of the speech delivered by Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat. He compared Narendra Modi to Adolf Hitler. Rahul Gandhi may have been a young child in 1975 when his grandmother Smt. Indira Gandhi as Prime Minister decided to proclaim the internal emergency. Surely, he is not unaware of what happened during those nineteen months of the Emergency. I was a college student at that time. As a Students Union Leader and an Activist in JP’s movement I spent the next nineteen months in prison. I came across a document being circulated as a part of the underground literature which was titled “A Tale of Two Emergencies”. I was later told that it had been authored by Shri L.K. Advani. This document is even now available as an annexure to Advani ji’s prison memoirs titled “A Prisoner’s Scrap Book”. The document was based on the authentic work of history of Nazi Germany by William Shirer. Shirer’s book was titled “The Rise and Fall of Third Reich” I obtained a copy of the book in prison and spent a few weeks reading it. After reading the book I had no doubt that the only Indian politician in post independence India who drew inspiration from Adolf Hitler was Smt. Indira Gandhi. The comparison between Hitler and her was startling.
In Venezuela, This Is How You Convert $1 Into $175,000………..
Submitted by Francisco Toro
Say you come into Venezuela with just $1 and an eye for business. Just how much money can you turn that bill into using tried-and-true, being-used-right-now scams? With a bit of gumption the answer to that is…$175K or so. Really. Here’s how.
First, take your crisp new dollar bill to a black market currency dealer and buy yourself Bs.85.
Did you make sure to get travel insurance before you trip?
Good…..Now go to a doctor and buy yourself Bs.85 worth of medical attention. Any pretext will do. Don’t forget to get a receipt, though: your insurance company back home will reimburse your 85 Bolivar claim at the official rate, giving you back $1 for every 6 Bolivar and 30 cents you spent.So after one doctor’s visit, your $1 has already turned into $13.50. Not too bad.
