Selena Gomez secret crush

Teens across the globe would consider Selena Gomez to be the luckiest girl in the world right now: A gorgeous, successful actress and singer, who also happens to date one of the biggest A-listers on the planet, Justin Bieber. But even though millions of females of all ages would love to be in her spot, Selena still has her own celebrity crushes.

Teens across the globe would consider Selena Gomez to be the luckiest girl in the world right now: A gorgeous, successful actress and singer, who also happens to date one of the biggest A-listers on the planet, Justin Bieber. But even though millions of females of all ages would love to be in her spot, Selena still has her own celebrity crushes.

Recently under the guise of meeting fans, Gomez's entourage surprised the 18-year-old with an encounter with her own fantasy man: Transformers actor Shia LaBoeuf. Let me repeat that: Selena Gomez, who is dating superstar Justin Bieber, freaked out over meeting Shia LaBoeuf. What would Bieber think?

After realizing who he was during a random backstage TV show encounter, Gomez hightailed it back down the hall, excited and flustered in the same way millions of regular girls would react in such a situation. LaBoeuf went after the apologetic singer and was kind enough to give her a hug, saying (a bit too intensely), "Hey, it's nice to meet you, thanks for being so sweet to me." The whole scene was quite adorable, and Shia played the gracious-but-formal "celebrity meeting a fan" role to a T.
After a photo opp and leaving LaBoeuf to his dressing room, Gomez took a moment to fully geek out and catch her breath, gushing, "Oh my gosh, he's so handsome! I'm so embarrassed!" Not to let her handlers off the hook, she added, laughing, "You guys suck, you used my fans as bait! Now he thinks I'm crazy--tell him I'm sorry."
Selena may be the luckiest girl in the world, but she's still a teen like everyone else. Isn't it nice to know even celebrities can get seriously starstruck?
Watch the meeting unfold below:

women who never remove make up for 2 year





A 20-year-old South Korean woman has not removed her make-up for two years.

"I want to look perfect at all time, I even sleep with the make-up on," said Bae Dal-mi.

Bae said she started learning the skill as a 14-year old and eventually started applying   very thick make-up.



She said the mirror was the most important item in her life.

"I always look into the mirror and keep it by my side all the time," she told a South Korean TV variety show.





Although Bae is considered a beautiful woman, she said she was not satisfied with her look. She said she wanted to do plastic surgery on 10 places.

Her mother, exasperated by Bae's extreme behaviour, brought her to see a beauty doctor via the programme.

Bae's skin was found to be two times older than her actual age due to the unremoved make-up.

As advised by the doctor, Bae finally removed her make-up in front of the camera.

China's high-speed rail


As our train raced through the familiar scenery of rural and small-town China on this sunny Monday morning -- alternating between green farmland and red tiled-roofs, my Chinese seatmate proudly pointed to a coffee cup on the tray table.

"Look, it's not moving at all," he said. "Impressive, isn't it?"

An amazingly smooth ride indeed -- considering we were traveling at 300 kilometers (186 miles) an hour, more than double the average speed of America's fastest train.


The shiny CRH380 model we rode serves the new 1,318-kilometer (819-mile) Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway -- completed in just three years -- and cuts journey time between China's political center and commercial hub in half to under five hours.
Small wonder rail authorities had invited the entire foreign press corps for a preview trip a few days before the official launch on June 30.



Normally jaded reporters gushed over the futuristic bullet train with spacious and quiet cabins, as immaculately dressed attendants offered frequent drink and snack service.

"It's the longest high-speed line ever built in a single phase with the highest technological standards in the world," Vice Minister of Railways Hu Yadong told us early this month.


Now the world's second-largest economy, and flush with cash, China has been busy purchasing foreign technologies and constructing new rail lines. It boasts more than 8,300 kilometers (5,100 miles) of high-speed routes, turning a non-existent network to the world's longest in a few short years.


"It makes China more competitive," said Tom Callarman, a transportation professor at China Europe International Business School in Shanghai. "It gives people more options to move where the jobs are, and also separates people from the freight so the freight can move more efficiently."

Callarman, an American, compares the two countries' commitment to high-speed rail as "night and day."
While the White House has earmarked $8 billion for projects for fiscal year 2012, the Chinese government plans to pour over $400 billion into its program in the next five years.

The massive investment and rapid construction have raised public doubts on the new lines' safety record and commercial viability, amid state media reports of empty trains running between inconvenient new stations in less-developed provinces.

The skeptics' voices became louder after the former railway minister -- a champion of high-speed rail -- was sacked for corruption early this year.

"It's not the faster, the better," said Sun Zhang, a railway professor at Tongji University in Shanghai and a long-time railway ministry consultant. "We have to take safety, economics and environmental impact into consideration.

"Strategically we can talk about a great leap forward in the industry, but tactically we have to do things step by step."
Already, Sun says the railway ministry has realized the importance of a diverse network that also includes regular trains and freight lines. He adds that authorities have slowed down some bullet trains -- including the newest route -- to make the service safer and cheaper.

At $85, a roomy second-class seat from Beijing to Shanghai costs less than half of a full-fare economy-class air ticket, almost guaranteeing the new service's popularity in China's richest region.

And although the United States may be no match to China in building fast rail, America still wins hands down in another fast category: Fast food. The breakfast served onboard China's latest high-speed train: Chicken burgers from KFC. 

Star-struck in Toronto

SCREEN TOUGH GUY Salman Khan’s corrupt cop romp Dabangg won a clutch of awards including best picture at the 12th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards - popularly dubbed the ‘Bollywood Oscars’ - held late Saturday.

The film directed by Abhinav Kashyap won in the hugely important music categories, as well as best screenplay. The award for best male playback singer went to Rahat Fateh Ali Khan for Tere Mast Mast Do Nain fromDabanng.
“I love you so much,” screamed Mamta Sharma over and over, after winning the award for best female playback singer for the song Munni Badnam from the same movie.
For best music direction, the award went to Sajid-Wajid and Lalit Pandit for Dabangg.
For best lyrics, the award went to Niranjan Iyengar for Sajda and Noor-e-Khuda in My Name is Khan.
Presenting the best debut award to Sonakshi Sinha, yesteryears’ diva Hema Malini said, “I saw this girl and never thought she will become an actress.”
A beaming Sonakshi said: “Toronto, Thanks for giving me the gift of IIFA. I will cherish it forever.”
Actor Sonu Sood also picked up the award for best performance in a negative role as the evil head of a regional political party in the film.

SRK rules

My Name is Khan followed with four nods for best story, best lyrics, best director for Karan Johar and best actor for Shah Rukh Khan’s portrayal of a Muslim suffering from Asperger’s syndrome who is detained at a US airport after his disability is mistaken for suspicious behaviour.
The making of the film was “emotional and therapeutic,” Johar said after the win, adding it taught him “restraint and love.”
Tens of thousands of fans swarmed Toronto’s Rogers’ Centre stadium for the event.
Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor and the Deol family were among the dozens of Bollywood superstars in attendance, along with Oscar-winners Hilary Swank and Cuba Gooding Jr.
A tense moment followed when a fan grabbed Shah Rukh Khan onstage, leading him to complain that the man was hurting his leg.
“This is the problem, only men grab my thighs,” Khan joked as his assailant was escorted off stage.
Khan’s return to the awards show after a six-year absence had earlier been put in doubt by a knee injury that had required being taped up at a hospital and “a couple of injections.”
He said he had fractured a part of the bone and the ligament was “swollen to three times the size it should be.”
He had vowed to perform at the IIFA show but in the end his dance steps were tremendously scaled back, and he urged the audience to fill in the rest by dancing in the aisles.
‘Who said award shows are not fixed?’
Anushka Sharma won for best leading female role for the romantic comedy Band Baaja Baaraat, which marked the directing debut of Maneesh Sharma.
Ranvir Singh won the award for best debut male award for his role in Band Baaja Baaraat.
Accepting the award from veteran actor couple Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, the young actor said, “It is special to me as the award is presented by my idol. (But) it is just the beginning.”
Arjun Rampal and Prachi Desai won awards for best supporting roles in the thriller Raajneeti and the gangster movie Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, respectively.
Ritesh Deshmukh, who co-hosted the Indian film industry’s glitziest awards show with Boman Irani, won best performance in a comic role inHousefull.
“Who said award shows are not fixed?” he quipped. “If you host the awards show for four years, they give you an award.”

Yoda named world's 'ugliest dog'


That little cutie is Yoda, who has just been named World’s Ugliest Dog 2011 in the annual at the Sonoma-Marin Fair. She replaces last year’s chihuahua champ, Princess Abby.
The 14-year-old Chinese-crested Chihuahua mix has come a long way since since was found behind a block of flats by Nicole Schumacher.
Originally frightened out of her wits and under the impression the mangy-looking mutt was a rat she almost ran a mile.
But on closer inspection she soon discovered it was an abandoned dog in need of a good home and quickly took her in.
While it certainly isn’t the type of competition most people would want to enter their hounds into most of the dogs were keen to prove that ugly is the new good-looking and paraded around, proudly showing off their protruding tongues, buck teeth and hairless bodies.
Chihuahua’s appear to be firm favourites for the title of the ugliest dog as a pedigree Chinese crested won in 2008 and another Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix was named the ugliest in 2007.

Russian woman, dies at her own funeral after being mistaken for dead


A Russian woman died from a heart attack brought on by the shock of waking up at her own funeral.
Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, was mistakenly declared deceased by doctors, the Daily Mail reported Friday.
But she later woke up - in a coffin surrounded by sobbing relatives. She started screaming after realizing she was about to be buried alive.
Mukhametzyanov, a resident of Kazan, was rushed back to the hospital where she was declared dead -- this time for real.
Her husband, Fagili Mukhametzyanov, was distraught.
"Her eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital but she only lived for another 12 minutes," he said.
He told The Sun that he would sue the hospital.
"I am very angry and want answers. She wasn't dead when they said she was and they could have saved her."
A spokesman at the hospital, also in Kazan, said officials were investigating.

Kim Kardashian Gets an X-Ray to Prove Her Butt Isn't Fake

Kim Kardashian has been battling butt implant rumors for years, and no matter how much she denies having any work done on her famous backside, nothing's been able to stop the buzz. So, she decided to get some cold hard facts to back up her claims -- in the form of a butt X-ray! Really.

Kim K (Pacific Coast News)Of course, the whole ordeal at the doctor's office was caught on tape for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The episode shows Kim taking a trip to the family doctor with her sisters. She tells the doc : "My sisters have dared me to get a butt X-ray I really just want to get [it] so I can show the whole world."




As Kim's getting ready to get the X-ray, Khloe suggests a better option: "You could just feel her a-- up and see if it's real. You're a doctor -- you'll know."

The gals also decide to take an X-ray of Kourtney's breast, for comparison's sake. Fun for the whole family! 


Khloe says: "The fact that Kim is actually laying on a table and actually getting an X-ray of her ass is, like, [her butt is] iconic. Are you serious?!"
The awesome episode airs Sunday.

Bad weather eclipses solar-powered plane

It takes more than puddles on the runway to stop most planes from taking off, but then Solar Impulse isn't like most planes.
The rest of the aerospace industry has gathered at the Paris Air Show to watch fighter jets, stunt planes and commercial aircraft roar and thunder into the threateningly gray skies overhead.
But in a tent at the end of the airfield, the team behind the Solar Impulse is quietly waiting for the clouds to clear and give them a chance to show what their revolutionary plane can do.
The plane was the brainchild of two aviators -- Bertrand Piccard, who made history with the world's first round-the-world hot air balloon flight in 1999, and Andre Borschberg.
It has the wingspan of an A340, the weight of a sports car, and the power of a scooter -- but as pilot Borschberg is quick to point out, it's not how much power it has, but where the power comes from that counts.
"It flies at a speed of about 70 kmh, but speed is not what matters, it is the energy," he insists.
That energy comes from the sun. Solar Impulse is a zero-fuel aircraft: all its power is supplied by more than 11,000 solar cells which coat its massive wings.
In the first major test of the plane, in July 2010, they provided enough power to allow the plane to fly non-stop, day and night, for 26 hours.
The next challenge, set for 2014, is to see if it can be flown non-stop around the world.

Aishwarya Rai is Pregnant



Amitabh Bachchan has just confirmed that his daughter-in-law, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is now pregnant. While this is of course good news, we wonder what will happen of Heroine now. Madhur Bhandarkar had signed her up with great fanfare.  It is a known fact that a woman gains weight, and looks different due to a pregnancy.


Some women also experience mood swings, cravings, etc. It is interesting to see how Bhandarkar and Aishwarya Rai will tackle this. Whether they will be shooting the entire movie within four months, or will the movie postponed, till Aishwarya makes a hurried comeback.

The news of her pregnancy was posted by Amitabh Bachchan on his blog

Paris to Tokyo in 2½ hours?

it turns out supersonic aircraft are just like buses: You wait years for one, and then two come along at once. Almost eight years after Concorde touched down for the last time, plane manufacturers and designers at the Paris Air Show have unveiled rival "son of supersonic" concepts.
The first, aircraft manufacturer EADS's Zero Emission Hyper Sonic Transport (ZEHST), will be powered by biofuel made from seaweed, carrying passengers above the Earth's atmosphere and dramatically cutting flight times.

EADS says the plane's three engine types -- conventional jets, rockets and supersonic "ramjets" -- will allow it to speed at Mach 4, around 5,000 kmh.
That would cut the journey time from Paris to Tokyo from its current 11 hours to less than 2.5 hours.
There is a catch: The plane is not due to take-off until 2050.

The second, SonicStar, is billed by its creators Hyper Mach as "the future in flight." It will fly at twice the speed of Concorde, linking New York and Dubai in two hours, 20 minutes -- about the time it would take to watch just one in-flight movie -- and allow passengers to fly around the globe in under five hours.

Hyper Mach CEO Richard Lugg said the plane would make "the other side of the world feel like it's just down the road."
Lugg told reporters he had been inspired as a youngster watching the maiden voyage of Concorde, and had made it his "life's work" to come up with the next generation of hypersonic aircraft.

World's fastest K Computer


There's a new No. 1 on the semi annual-list of the world's top supercomputers: Japan's K Computer is so far advanced, it's three times faster than the second fastest supercomputer and more powerful than the next five supercomputers on the list combined.
The so-called Top 500 list is revised each June and November by researchers at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and the University of Mannheim in Germany. Supercomputers and their massive processing power are used for an array of tasks such as weather forecasting, high-speed stock trading, and simulating weapons tests.
The K Computer, built by Fujitsu, has 68,544 central processing units, each with eight cores. That's twice as many as any other supercomputer on the Top 500.
The letter "K" is short for the Japanese word "kei," which symbolizes ten quadrillions. The K Computer is capable of performing more than 8 quadrillion calculations per second.
The massive supercomputer (it comprises of more than 800 computer racks) is used at the Riken Institute for Physical and Chemical Research in Kobe, Japan. This is the first time since 2004 that Japan had held the top supercomputer on the list. (Japan also has the fifth most powerful supercomputer on the list.)
The project won't be completely finished until next year, at which point the Riken Institute plans to share its computing power for researchers' projects around the world.

Riot kissers tentatively identified




It was the smooch seen round the world, and now we know the passionate couple's names. At least, we think we do.
The couple were photographed lying in a romantic-looking embrace in the middle of a Vancouver, British Columbia, street while a post-hockey game riot swirled around them Wednesday night.
Australian website ninemsn identified the couple as Perth native Scott Jones and his girlfriend, Alexandra Thomas of Vancouver, after Jones' sister and mother came forward.
"It is something he would do; that's our boy," his mother, Megan Jones of Perth, told ninemsn. "He has always lived in his own world. He's special like that. He doesn't always connect with what's going on around him."
CNN has reached out to the couple but has not confirmed that they are the people in the photo.
Some self-described witnesses have said the woman was injured and the man was comforting her, but online speculation is rife that the photo was staged or that the kissing couple are opportunistic performance artists.
Brett Jones of Perth, who told the Toronto Star he is Scott Jones' father, said the picture is legitimate but is not what it seems.
"She had actually been injured," Brett Jones told the Star. A riot police officer had knocked her down with a shield, he said. "He lay down next to her to comfort her. She was crying, and he just kissed her to calm her down."
Rich Lam, the Getty Images photographer who captured the image, wasn't sure what was happening.
"I just saw these two people and I thought they were hurt," he told NPR. "... I didn't really know what I got until the editor pointed it out."
NPR writer Claire O'Neill compared the scene to an art installation by Tino Sehgal at New York's Guggenheim Museum.
Brett Jones said he told his son not to worry about the doubters.
"Tell your story as it happened and there's nothing you can do about them," he told his son, according to the Star. "I think it's amazing."

Amazing photo shots show

Photos of Britain in a whole new light have been taken by an astronaut orbiting 230 miles away in space.




The amazing shots show what the UK and Ireland look like at night with huge areas twinkling.
London is a huge mass of orange and yellow with spindly, lit-up roads leading out of it in all directions.
Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Dublin are also glowing brightly in the dark.
The pictures were taken by Italian astronaut Paulo Nespoli during the six months he spent aboard the International Space Station.


The 54-year-old captured the view on a cloudless night before he headed back to Earth last month.
Meanwhile, a glowing emerald nebula, a huge region of hot gas and glowing dust, has been captured by a space telescope.

It has been named RCW 120 by astronomers and, although it cannot be seen by the naked eye, its colours were picked up by the Spitzer telescope's infrared detectors.
The nebula is 4,300 light years away near the constellation Scorpius.

Angelina Jolie to visit Syrian refugees in Turkey



Actress Angelina Jolie, a longtime goodwill ambassador for the United Nations' refugee agency, will be headed to Turkey this week to visit Syrian refugees, Turkey's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

Jolie is expected to arrive in Istanbul and head to Hatay on Friday, according to the ministry, which accepted an application for her visit on Wednesday.

More than 8,000 Syrians have fled their country for Turkey to escape violence, including a military offensive in the Jisr al-Shugur area.

Jolie was named a goodwill ambassador for the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees in early 2001 and has visited more than 20 countries "to highlight the plight of millions of uprooted people and to advocate for their protection."

The U.N. office said her interest in "humanitarian affairs was piqued in 2000 when she went to Cambodia to film the adventure film 'Tomb Raider.' "

Jolie has won numerous acting awards, including a best supporting actress Academy Award for her performance in 1999's "Girl, Interrupted."
