A 22-year-old woman was arrested earlier this month for marrying a 17-year-old boy and allegedly sexually assaulting him.

The woman is currently lodged at the Byculla jail along with her five-month-old daughter — her child with the minor boy. She has approached the Mumbai sessions court for bail.

The woman was arrested by police following a complaint filed by the boy’s mother. In the complaint, the mother has alleged that the woman had threatened them she would harm herself if she was not allowed to live with them. Following this, the boy left home, his mother claimed.

The case against her is registered under the stringent Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act as well as Child Marriage Act at the Kurla police station. The definition of a “child” under the Child Marriage Act means a male who is under 21 years of age and a female who has not yet turned 18.

The police complaint filed by the minor’s mother alleged that the woman had “enticed” her son and that she was a two-time divorcee.

The mother said that she has two daughters aged 20 and 18 and her son is 17 years and eight months old. She further stated that her son and the woman had been in contact for two years. She also said her son informed his father that the woman had been threatening to commit suicide.

Turmeric tea for weight loss? You have more options in ginger, lemon and green tea

Best tea for weight loss: The benefits of green tea, say fitness experts, are many. It helps decrease inflammation, improves skin and decrease growth of cancer cells in the body.

The aroma of tea brewing over a burner is the perfect sight in the monsoons. And what’s better is the fact that you can lose weight while sipping on some hot chai. Though our milky chai has not been associated with weight loss, the newer varieties available in the market promise instant weight loss. In fact nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar encourages her clients to drink milky chai for its many benefits. Many fitness experts count turmeric tea, ginger, lemon and green tea among the best tea for weight loss.

Green tea, which has been immensely popular in the past decade, has anti-cancer properties apart from weight loss. It speeds up the metabolism process by directly acting at the cellular level and thereby helping the fat burn rate in the body. White tea, which is a purer form of tea, inhibits the production of fat cells and also helps in weight loss,” says Harish Mohan, founder SipWise, a beverage brand.

Here’s a list of some other teas to try for weight loss

Turmeric tea

Turmeric tea accelerates digestion, increases metabolism and promotes weight loss. Turmeric has a bioactive compound called curcuminoids – curcumin, which has many powerful medicinal healing properties. “The curcumin in turmeric suppresses the growth of fat tissues and helps reduce weight. Eating mindfully and drinking turmeric tea regularly could help restrict increase in fat cells,” says Payal Kothari, integrative nutritionist and life coach.

Green tea

Being a storehouse of many antioxidant compounds, it’s easy to assume that green tea is one of the healthiest beverages. This tea helps decrease inflammation, improves skin and decrease growth of cancer cells. “This is a calorie-free drink and something that most weight-watchers swear by. Green tea contains catechins, antioxidants that help suppress the production of free radicals in the body. It has also been shown to activate the body’s thermogenic fat-burning activity,” explains Delhi-based Sujata Sharma, who is a diabetes educator for the BeatO app.

Matcha tea

For the uninitiated, matcha is a finely ground green tea. In ancient Japan, monks primarily consumed it as a beverage of choice. Now, it can either be dissolved in milk or water to add to its versatility — and also for its health benefits. “This green tea leaf powder is high in chlorophyll levels which promotes cell regeneration, detoxes and reboots the body keeping it healthy and inflammation free,” says Kothari. Apart from the health benefits like improving moods, memory and concentration, helping you relax, aiding in weight loss, matcha has taken a diverse transformation into the culinary world with chefs adding it to desserts, smoothies among other things.

Ginger, lemon, mint herbal tea

“If consumed on a daily basis, this concoction acts as a great immunity booster with its anti-bacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, ideal for all ages,” says Kothari. Just a cup of this healing tea can help detoxify and makes the body alkaline. It is easier to lose weight when the body is in alkaline mode.

World Emoji Day 2018: Twitter, Facebook Reveal Usage Statistics, Apple Releases 70 New Emoji Characters

Apple unveils 70 new emoji characters coming later this year.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Cake emoji is the most used by Indians on Facebook
  • ‘Crying while laughing’ emoji is used frequently on Twitter in India
  • Apple has released custom emojis of its top management

World Emoji Day 2018, similar to each iteration since 2014, is on Tuesday, July 17. World Emoji Day was founded by Jeremy Burge, the creator of Emojipedia, which is an unofficial Wikipedia for emojis. Ever since instant messaging took over the reins of day-to-day communication, emojis or emoticons have been frequently used by people to express their feelings in a way that is comprehensible to the recipient. On the occasion, Facebook and Twitter have released statistics and infographics that reveal the volume and preferences of emojis across the world, including India. Facebook has also released two new features. Separately, Apple has released 70 new emojis in celebration of World Emoji Day, and also updated the bio photos of its leadership team with Memoji. Dating app Tinder has also released infographics for World Emoji Day, including one for India.

Facebook

Facebook has introduced two new features including a camera frame and a themed text element to help users express themselves better with emoji. As per statistics revealed by Facebook, users on the social networking platform frequented the <3 heart emoji twice as much as this year compared to last year. With a total of 2,800 emojis available in Facebook’s catalogue, almost 2,300 are used every day on the platform. And, there are over 900 million instances of emoji responses, without text, on Facebook Messenger daily. More than 700 million are used on Facebook posts each day, with the biggest day being New Year’s Eve (December 31, 2017) that saw the highest amount of emojis shared on both platforms.

In India, the most popular emoji on Facebook and Facebook Messenger was the Cake emoji, which is probably used by millions of Indian Facebook users to send birthday wishes to people in their friend lists. Facebook users from the US and UK used the ‘crying while laughing’ emoji the most, also known as ‘joy’.

Twitter

Even Twitter came out with its top emoji list for the period of July 2017 – June 2018. The most popular emoji on the micro-blogging platform in India is the ‘crying while laughing’ emoji. Other popular ones include the pray emoji, the smile emoji, heart emoji, fire emoji, thumbs up emoji, kiss emoji, and more. Twitter claims that it has actively introduced new thematic emojis across relevant events of culture, entertainment, sports, and news.

Apple

Apple has something in store for emoji-loving millennials. The Cupertino giant has announced 70 new emoji characters that will arrive on the Apple Watch, iPad, iPhone, and Mac later this year as part of a free software update. Created based on the latest Unicode 11.0, the new list of emojis includes characters based on animals such as a kangaroo, peacock, parrot, and lobster. Apple is also adding new food emojis for mango, lettuce, cupcake, moon cake, and other popular items. A new superhero emoji, and emojis for a softball, a nazar amulet, and an infinity symbol will also make it to Apple’s range of devices.

Apple is not stopping there. On the occasion of World Emoji Day 2018, the company has releasedcustom emojis – Memoji, or personalised Animoji – based on avatars of its top management. These include emojis for CEO Tim Cook, Chief Design Officer Jony Ive, SVP – Software Engineering Craig Federighi, and others.

Tinder

Dating app Tinder has also released its infographics for World Emoji Day 2018. The most used emoji characters in profile bios in India include the ‘laughing’ emoji, the cup of coffee emoji, car emoji, dog emoji, pizza emoji, camera emoji, and more. According to Tinder, Indian users on the app make use of emojis to describe their personalities, interests, and allegiance to things like coffee and pets.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 to have iris scanner and Intelligent Scan

Samsung galaxy tab has been leaking off the entire time. The new tablet appeared with thin bezels and no home button on the front, raising the question what type of biometric security it would have.

Rumors have been suggesting iris scanner and face recognition features, and finally, SamMobile reported that the Galaxy Tab S4 would indeed sport them both. The information was leaked from a firmware video that shows how both features work.

The animation that explains how the iris scanner and face recognition act when powering the device is the same as in the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones. Both features work simultaneously, and when the sensor recognizes either the face or the irides, it unlocks. This allows the scanners to operate both in light and dark environments.

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is nearing its launch. It is likely to make an appearance on August 9 at the Galaxy Note9 unveiling and most likely will be announced at IFA in Berlin. We expect the device to arrive with Exynos 9810 chipset, Android 8.1 with Samsung Experience UI on top. It is also likely to have a cheaper variant with the same 10.5” screen size, but lower-tier specs and the model will be named .
