8 Things Your Boyfriend Is Secretly Thinking but Is Scared to Tell You June 20, 2019 12:15

Truth can be sometimes painful. There are quite a lot of things your boyfriend wants to tell you, but he doesn’t because he cares about you and doesn’t want to hurt your feelings. No worries! Here are the 10 things he wishes he could say but is scared to: He Notices Those Five Extra Pounds    When you’re a new couple, every so often you put on what could be considered “couples weight.” You know, the few extra pounds that as if by magic appear from dining out and not going to the gym as you’re so busy spending time with each other. This doesn’t mean your man isn’t still attracted to you! He just wishes you would look the same as when you met. He Doesn’t like Calling to Say Goodnight   Men don’t like being forced into things. They like to call you because they want to, not because they’re being forced to. He knows you think it’s sweet when he calls to say goodnight, so he does it to make you happy. But he doesn’t really want to. He Wants You to Show Some Skin   Men are visual. They like you to look great incessantly! He realizes when you put effort into your appearance, even if you’re just going to a casual dinner. Simple and plain, your boyfriend wants you to deck up. He Doesn’t Think You Need so Much Makeup Men don’t die for makeup. They don’t notice the extra highlighter you put on your cheekbones or if your eyeliner is blue or black. Men like the people they date to be naturally beautiful. Your boyfriend likes when you wear subtle makeup. He wants you to look like yourself. He Doesn’t Want to Spend 24/7 with Your Family   Family is always a touchy subject. Your boyfriend is dating you, not your family. Of course, he respects and cares about your family, but he doesn’t need to be with them every weekend. Seeing them once a week is great. He Likes Hanging out with His Friends Men crave guy time. Whether it’s sitting around boozing or going out for drinking, he loves hanging out with his friends. He wants to tell you that he needs more man time, but he doesn’t want to go against you. He Would Love More Adventure He would adore trying something new in the bedroom, but he doesn’t understand how to make this known to you without being offensive. A new position or two could actually spruce things up. He Enjoys Staying Home   Going out is fun, but so is staying home. Being out and about every night gets tiring. Your man enjoys a home-cooked meal and a night on the couch more than you think. By Sowmya Sangam

U.S. Mulls Caps on H-1B Visas to Deter Data Localization Rules: Report June 20, 2019 10:14

Days before the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to New Delhi, the United States is mulling caps on H-1B visas on India. The cap - under which skilled foreign workers are brought to the U.S. each year - is being considered by the Americans for the nations which store data locally, according to a report by Reuters. With the new move in place, the already bitter relations - on trade and tariffs - are likely to spike in the coming days. The move would not only affect the Indian software companies, but also the global IT giants based in the U.S. who seek to hire local talent from India in a bundle. The latest initiative by the United States comes days after India upset firms such as Mastercard and irked the U.S. government with stringent new rules on data storage. The tit-for-tat tariff actions in recent weeks would not only harm the trade between the two nations but likely to even dampen the business opportunity the U.S. is looking with India, under the newly elected Bharatiya Janata Party government at the Centre. Under the new plan by the United States, the cap on H-1B visas would be between 10 percent and 15 percent of the annual quota for Indians. However, currently, as there is no limit, an estimated 70 percent of H-1B visas go to Indians. Apart for this valid information, sources say that plan was linked to the global push for 'data localization', in which a country places restrictions on data as a way to gain better control over it. Also, this potentially curbs the power of international companies. The U.S. has till now lobbied hard against data localization rules around the world. By Sowmya Sangam

Cricket is the first love for many Indians, and the numbers continue to show an upward trajectory with more and more people traveling to watch the games, whether within India for IPL or overseas for mega-events like ICC World Cup,” said Rajesh Magow, co-founder and chief executive officer, India, MakeMyTrip. “There has also been a shift in interests for other sporting events like the football world cup and Olympics,” he added. In 2018, MakeMyTrip witnessed an over 400 percent jump in bookings to Russia for FIFA and the company is expecting an equivalent inflow of bookings for the upcoming Tokyo Olympics next year. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be held from July 24-August 9 next year.

In a heart-wrenching incident, a 29-year-old Indian man and his wife in Dubai physically assaulted his mother, causing her bone and rib fractures, internal bleeding as well as severe burns and unintentionally causing her death. The man and his 28-year-old wife, whose identity have not been revealed, have been charged in a court. The trial has been adjourned until July 3 and the couple will remain in custody till then. The couple tortured the elderly woman repeatedly and they even cut her right eye iris out and part of her other eye, the Court of First Instance heard.Reportedly the torture lasted from July 2018 till October 2018. A forensic doctor said that the aged woman weighed just 29 kg at the time of her death, the report added. The couple has been detained but they denied the charge. Al Qusais police station registered the case. The case was exposed by the couple's 54-year-old neighbor, who is also an Indian and a hospital employee, the report said. The witness recounted how the man's wife visited her at her apartment in the same building. "She was then holding her daughter. She claimed that her mother-in-law had come from India but did not take proper care of their daughter and that the girl would often fall sick while in her care. She wanted me to look after the girl until she came back from work." About three days later, the witness spotted an elderly woman lying down in her neighbors' balcony. "That woman was almost naked with apparent burn marks on her body. I informed the security guard," she said. The witness said she then knocked on the couple's door. "I found his mother on the floor... She was in critical condition and needed urgent medical treatment. I called the ambulance." The witness recalled how the mother cried and screamed in pain when the paramedics tried to carry her because of the burns she had. "The defendant remained in the flat and did not go with his mother. I told the paramedics he should go along. He went later after they talked him into it." A Filipino paramedic, 36, recalled how he found the victim in a very dreadful shape in her son's flat. "She was in awful pain. Her hands and legs were swollen and her legs bore burn marks. Her son claimed she had poured hot water on herself when we asked him about the cause of the burn injuries. He was standing far from her, apparently indifferent about her condition." The paramedic added that the son did not help carry his mother to the ambulance while the neighbors, who were around, stepped in to help. "She was tortured repeatedly over a short span of time. Burns covered 10 percent of her body. The bone and rib fractures, internal bleeding, beating with different tools, burns, negligence, and starvation have all led to the deterioration of her health condition," the doctor said. The woman died on October 31, 2018, according to a hospital certificate. By Sowmya Sangam

Alaska Teen Kills Best Friend, Shares Child Porn for $9 Mn After Catfished by Man Online June 19, 2019 13:09

An 18-year-old teenager from Alaska has been charged with conspiring to murder her "best friend" after a man she met online offered her USD 9 million to commit the crime. According to investigators, Denali Brehmerwas recruited to kill her friend by Darin Schilmiller, a 21-year-old manof Indiana. The pair had previously hooked up online, with Schilmiller assuming a fake identity and posing as a millionaire named "Tyler." As per court documents, during the course of their online relationship, they discussed a plan to rape and murder someone in Alaska. Schilmiller promised Brehmer USD 9 million or more to send him videos or photographs of the gruesome attack. Brehmer then proceeded to recruit four friends and the group settled on Cynthia Hoffman - described as one of Brehmer's best friends - as their victim. On June 2, the 19-year-old Hoffman was lured to a hiking trail northeast of Anchorage where she was chained with duct tape and shot once in the back of the head before being pushed into a river. Her body was discovered on June 4. Local news reports said Hoffman's father has described his daughter as having a learning disability and the mindset of a 12-year-old. Police say the victim was driven to Thunderbird Falls by Brehmer and Kayden McIntosh, a 16-year-old boy, under the guise of going on a riverside hike. McIntosh allegedly shot Hoffman with Brehmer's gun and dumped her body in the water. Authorities say Brehmer communicated with Schilmiller throughout the murder, sending him "Snapchat photographs and videos of Hoffman tied up and of the body afterward."   Both Brehmer and McIntosh have been arrested and charged in relation to the murder. Schilmiller has also been arrested along with three others accused of assisting in the planning or execution of the killing. A grand jury last Friday indicted all six defendants for first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree, two counts of second-degree murder and other charges. Schilmiller and Brehmer were also indicted on Tuesday on federal child pornography and child exploitation charges. Police said that a search on Brehmer's phone during their investigation into Hoffman's death revealed that the teen - at Schilmiller's direction - had produced videos depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a minor and sent them to Schilmiller.Court documents say Schilmiller admitted to attempting to blackmail Brehmer after the murder into sexually assaulting young girls. Both face up to life in prison on child pornography charges. They also face up to 99 years in prison for each of the murder charges, the conspiracy to commit murder charge, and the solicitation to commit murder charge. By Sowmya Sangam
