NASA astronaut Dick Gordon, pilot of Apollo 12, dead at 88

NASA astronaut Dick Gordon, pilot of Apollo 12, dead at 88


Gordon became one of only two dozen men to fly to the moon when he crewed the second lunar landing in 1969.

Dick Gordon, a former NASA astronaut and the command module pilot on Apollo 12, died Monday at the age of 88.
Gordon, whose death was announced by NASA Tuesday, was one of only two dozen men to fly to the moon, making the trip as a member of the crew on the second lunar landing mission in 1969. Gordon was slated to make a moon walk as the commander of Apollo 18, but that mission was canceled due to budgetary cuts.
While he never got the chance to walk on the moon, Gordon spent more than 315 hours in space on two missions. Gordon was also the pilot for the Gemini 11 mission in 1966, performing two spacewalks.

Three UCLA basketball players, including LiAngelo Ball, are questioned by police in China about shoplifting

Three UCLA basketball players, including LiAngelo Ball, are questioned by police in China about shoplifting



The itinerary called for a week of international goodwill events for UCLA’s basketball team leading up to its season opener.
There would be a trip to Shanghai Disney as well as a meet-and-greet with Joe Tsai, the co-founder of Chinese commerce giant Alibaba who extended his left arm and smiled while holding a cell phone aloft as he posed for a selfie with Bruins players standing behind him on a basketball court in Hangzhou.


Then came a most unwelcome diversion.
UCLA freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were involved in a shoplifting incident, according to a person close to the situation, clouding their futures and drastically altering the tenor of the Bruins’ trip.

It was not immediately clear whether those players had been detained by police or whether they would be allowed to play in their team’s game against the Yellow Jackets at Baoshan Arena in Shanghai.
UCLA chancellor Gene Block and athletic director Dan Guerrero made the trip with the team, but have not commented on the situation. A UCLA spokesperson declined to comment, but Pac-12 Conference commissioner Larry Scott, who also was traveling with the Bruins, issued a statement condemning the alleged transgressions.
“We are very disappointed by any situation that detracts from the positive student-athlete educational and cultural experience that this week is about,” Scott said. “Whether in the United States or abroad, we expect our student-athletes to uphold the highest standards.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that local police were called to the hotel where both teams were staying in Hangzhou and inspected the contents of the UCLA team bus as players waited to depart for practice. Police interviewed players from both teams before clearing three players from Georgia Tech, according to a statement released by the school.

The three UCLA freshmen involved in the incident comprise nearly half of a seven-man recruiting class that was ranked as high as No. 5 in the country. All three were expected to come off the bench this season.
Ball is the younger brother of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball and a high-volume shooting guard from Chino Hills High who scored 11 points on four-for-eight shooting during the Bruins’ exhibition victory over Cal State Los Angeles last week. His father, LaVar Ball, told The Times that LiAngelo would attend UCLA for only one season before going on to the NBA.
Riley is an old-school, back-to-the-basket power forward from Chatsworth Sierra Canyon High who is also a tenacious defender. He forced a turnover in the backcourt and went in for a dunk during UCLA’s exhibition and finished with eight points, five rebounds and two steals.
Hill, a high-energy power forward from Corona Centennial High, did not play during the exhibition because of knee soreness. Coach Steve Alford said before the team departed that he was hopeful that Hill could play against the Yellow Jackets.
Riley said last week that he was looking forward to his first trip overseas.

“I had to get a passport, a visa, that whole process,” Riley said. “We took care of that during the summer.”
Did he have to get immunizations as well?
“Yeah, yeah, shots,” Riley said. “My arm was dead for at least a day. I ain’t had no shots like that.”
UCLA also visited China for an exhibition tour in 2012 as part of the Pac-12’s efforts to extend the global reach of its teams.
The Bruins’ game against Georgia Tech represents the third annual Pac-12 China Game and will be broadcast live on ESPN at 8:30 p.m. PST Friday.
“This week is about the game, but it’s also about much more,” Scott said before the incident in a statement. “Sport can play a role to improve the world by having peaceful, friendly exchanges between people. This is an example of how people getting to know one another, especially when they’re young, and having an appreciation for different cultures, societies, systems and ways of thinking can make our world a better place.
“We’re happy the young men from UCLA and Georgia Tech will have a chance to experience that and I’m sure that will leave an indelible mark.”











Mahira Khan On Leaked Photos With Ranbir Kapoor: I Am A Role Model, But Not A Perfect One

Mahira Khan On Leaked Photos With Ranbir Kapoor: I Am A Role Model, But Not A Perfect One




Mahira Khan‘s pictures with Ranbir Kapoorwreaked havoc for the actress who was at the receiving end of a lot of hate and nasty comments regarding her clothes and her getting caught smoking were everywhere on social media platforms. Mahira remained tight-lipped throughout the entire controversy, however, finally chose to come out during an interview with Somethinghaute.com.
“I’d be lying if I said that I decided right off the bat that I wouldn’t respond to this controversy,” Mahira told the website, “And I’m a very strong woman but when all of this happened, I was completely shattered and broken. I would think about posting a statement every day. Then I would stop myself because I just wouldn’t know what to say.” ALSO READ: Ranveer Singh On Ranbir Kapoor – Mahira Khan Viral Pics: Mahira Is A Great Performer, One Should Ideally Engage With Her At Just That Level

“Thankfully, ‘Power Di Game’ was ready to be released, which I thought was perfect timing, so I just posted that as sort of a response to the trolls. But to be honest, I understand where all the criticism came from and it didn’t come from a place of hate. I’m not talking about the trolls but those who were genuinely disappointed to see those pictures. It’s the same disappointment that my nani or my mamoo would have felt seeing that. So even now when I meet an older lady who says that she didn’t like the pictures, I’m quick to apologize,” she added.

Speaking about being considered a role model for her fans, the actress said, “People ask me if I’m a good role model for my fans, and my response to that is that yes, I am a role model but I’m not the perfect role model. I am human, I make mistakes. And I was really happy to see that there were so many people who stood up for me. It goes to show that the narrative in Pakistan is changing, and if nothing else, I’m happy to have been part of that narrative.” Meanwhile, Mahira will be gearing up to promote her upcoming film Verna, the trailer of which has received rave reviews, where she will be seen essaying a powerful character.

This Mumbai Guy Rode A Horse Like A Bridegroom To Collect His iPhone

This Mumbai Guy Rode A Horse Like A Bridegroom To Collect His iPhone





Sometimes, when we badly want something, there are chances that we do things bizarre and out of the box, rather unconventional, to succeed. Especially in the times when things spread like a fire on social media, all you need is an idea, no one has ever seen before. People do crazy things on social media to get famous and to get into the limelight.

Since the time iPhone X has been launched, people have been posting their selfies with their new iPhone X, just to show how happy they are to have received the best phone of their lives!


And now, what this Mumbai based guy did while he was on his way for receiving his prized possession, is epic. We would rather call it a stunt to be in headlines, however idiosyncratic.


A man from Thane’s Naupada district took a horse ride while holding a placard in his hand that read, “I love iPhone X”. Not only this, he also had his people walking by his side, playing band and celebrating.


As per reports, Pallival, a resident of Thane, went riding a horse with a cavalcade and a band party, just to receive his iPhone X at 6:30 pm at Thane’s Hariniwas circle. It was his attempt to stand out from the usual crowd and surely by now, it has attracted good attention.

Undoubtedly, iPhone X is the most anticipated smartphone of the year and a good number of Indian users have pre-ordered their device. The iPhone X went on sale in India at 6 PM yesterday.
