74 years

Only just heard of the very sad news that Sri Radha Sarvesvara Sharana Devacharya Maharaj has passed away. Shriji Maharaj after consulting the calendar for an auspicious time to depart went into deep meditation on Makara Sankranti and left his body. He was 88 years old and had led the Nimbarka Sampradaya Gaddi for an amazing 74 years! It’s no exaggeration to say that he was one of the most respected figures in the Vaishnava world, and a great example of dedication to Hindus the world over. My condolences to his followers.

Stephen Hawking says humans have 1,000 years to leave Earth

Famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has  grim news for humanity: We have 1,000 years to get off Earth or we’re totally screwed. The 74-year-old  delivered a speech on Tuesday at the Oxford Union in which he said “I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet.” He believes it will become impossible for us to keep living here.

I am still of the opinion that we get and do a really much better advertising. I mean there is not only Rukia or a little picture of you put in a corner, we get them together in your face to see and they don’t even need other characters to steal the spotlight and look who we have put in the corner our little kid mascot Kon.

The Golden Globes show Trump’s America is not the future

When Moonlight writer and director Barry Jenkins spoke to the Los Angeles Times about his breakout film’s six Golden Globe nominations, he noted that the recognition sends a powerful message of inclusiveness in a country divided by Donald Trump’s election.“In this post-election world, it’s really this beautiful snapshot of what America is right now,” Jenkins said in December. “It’s not just a monolith — I think that’s the biggest statement." 

With at least 20 nominees of color, this year’s Golden Globes, which air Sunday, represent the most racially diverse roster in the show’s 74-year history. Headliners include Denzel Washington for the film adaptation of Fences, Mahershala Ali for his performance in Moonlight and Octavia Spencer for her role in Hidden Figures.

In one of the most iconic and controversial moments of his career, Muhammad Ali stands over Sonny Liston and yells at him after knocking the former champ down in the first round of their 1965 rematch. Skeptics dubbed it “the Phantom Punch,” but films show Ali’s flashing right caught Liston flush, knocking him to the canvas. Refusing to go to a neutral corner, Ali stood over Liston and told him to “get up and fight, sucker." Ali, the heavyweight boxing legend who fought opponents in the ring and on behalf of social justice outside of it, has died at 74 years old.

MY FAVES ARE FINALLY BACK IVE WAITED 74 YEARS FOR THIS, also kuroo and daichi being adorable is what i’m here for

“ I’m a victim of my own insides. There was a time when I wanted to know everything … It used to make me very unhappy, all that feeling. I just didn’t know what to do with it. But now I’ve learned to make that feeling work for me. I’m full of emotion and I want a release, and if you’re on stage and if it’s really working and you’ve got the audience with you, it’s a oneness you feel.”

How ‘Deadpool’ Saved Ryan Reynolds
By Ramin Setoodeh

Ryan Reynolds spent 11 years thinking about what it would feel like to walk in Deadpool’s shoes. So when he finally got to don the red Spandex suit, he’d already worked out the character: His underdog Marvel superhero wouldn’t have Superman’s steely strut but instead would walk with a bounce. “Deadpool is so feminine,” the actor says over soup at a hotel in Bel-Air. “At least in how I saw him.”

The trouble was that the stunt doubles had a hard time dropping the macho swagger. “I’d say, ‘When you land, can you sashay away?’” Reynolds laughs.

This week, Reynolds’ special gait will be on full display on the red carpet of the Golden Globes. “Deadpool” is the first live-action comic-book movie to score a best-picture nomination in the organization’s 74-year-history, competing in the musical/comedy category. And Reynolds is in the running as a best actor nominee, following a prize at the Critics’ Choice Awards last month. “Not to sound too esoteric,” Reynolds says, “but I really got this guy.”

In a year of outsiders in which Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders emerged as political superstars, “Deadpool,” a D-list comic-book mercenary with a disfigured face and an arsenal of raunchy puns, became one of the major success stories at the movies. The 20th Century Fox release, cobbled together on a shoestring (for the genre) $58 million budget, raked in $783 million worldwide, surpassing “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Suicide Squad.” But just as important, the movie catapulted Reynolds, an amiable Canadian who has had his share of flops, back onto the A-list
