Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe says Hollywood undeniably racist

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has said it is "pretty undeniable" that Hollywood is racist.
He told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme the film world was seen as "very, very progressive", but was "lagging behind" industries in encouraging diversity.
Radcliffe also said it was hard for gay actors to come out for fear of being typecast in gay roles.

And he stated that he did not want to play Potter again "at this point".
The 27-year-old British actor has starred as JK Rowling's child wizard in several films since 2001. 
But his latest screen role, in the thriller Imperium, is as Nate Foster, an FBI agent who goes undercover to infiltrate a white supremacist group.
'Fear and hatred'Radcliffe told Victoria Derbyshire this had led him to think more about racial issues, and to consider how close to "mainstream" some of the opinions in the film had become.

Horrific video shows woman stabbed 22 times by jilted lover in public and nobody came to her rescue (watch)

A 21-year old woman was stabbed 22 times by her jilted lover onTuesday morning in full public view in Burari, north Delhi, India and nobody came to her rescue.
The video footage shows the assailant chasing the woman and stabbing her, and as she fell to the ground, the man continued stabbing her as passers-by walked past while others watched in fear.

One Passer-by tried to intervene but was threatened by the monstrous assailant who pointed the knife he was holding at him.
When it seemed like she was unconscious, he flipped her to the other side and continued stabbing her. At one point he kicked her in the head after trying to choke her.

The woman identified as Karuna, a teacher, was brought dead at Sushruta Trauma Centre in ISBT.

TWITTER: You Can Finally Write Longer Tweets

Twitter has made a long-awaited update by changing the way it counts the 140 characters in tweets.

The new policy, first announced in May, now factors in certain add-ons, including pictures, into a message's length. 
Attachments such as photos, GIFs and videos, as well as quoted tweets, will no longer be counted as part of the 140 characters, enabling users to cram in more words.

'Say more about what's happening! Rolling out now,' said an official tweet from San Francisco-based Twitter.

Twitter will also be adding a new button to enable users to retweet and quote their own tweets.

The move comes as Twitter's efforts to increase its user base and engagement have been sputtering, raising questions about its growth trend as it seeks to keep pace in the fast-moving world of social media.

The latest move eases but does not eliminate the 140-character limit, which was put in place due to mobile phone text messaging constraints when Twitter launched in 2006.

Yaya Toure has announced his international retirement from Ivory Coast duty after a 12-year career in which he won 102 caps.

Toure, 33, was the captain of his national team and led the country to their second-ever African Nations Cup title in 2015.

The Manchester City midfielder was expected to skipper the team in Gabon in January as he began the defence of their crown, but he has instead chosen to quit international football.

He said on his official website: “Writing this note was probably ‘the most difficult match of my life.’ After 14 years at the highest level, I’m sure this is the right time for me!

He said that he wanted to quit for Saudi to concentrate on religion after becoming more involved at a mosque in Sheffield. The club are a bit taken aback by it. They are working with him to come to some kind of agreement.’

France becomes first country to ban plastic cups and plates

France has become the first country in the world to ban disposable plastic cups and plates.
A new French law will require all disposable tableware to be made from 50% biologically-sourced materials that can be composted at home by January of 2020. That number willrise to 60% by January of 2025. The measure is an addition to France's "Energy Transition for Green Growth Act," a wide-reaching law adopted last year with the aim of mitigating the impact of climate change. France hopes to become a world leader in environmental and energy solutions, catalyzed by the COP21 Climate Change conference held in Paris last December. One hundred and fifty single-use cups are thrown away every second in the country -- 4.73 billion per year, according to the French Association of Health and Environment, ASEF. Only 1% of them is recycled, largely because they are made of a mixture of polypropylene and polystyrene.

Lifestyle: 7 reasons the best employees quit, even when they like their job

Losing a great employee is a terrible thing. There's the expense of finding, onboarding, and training a replacement. There's the uncertainty of how a new employee will work out. There's the hardship on the rest of your staff until the position can be filled.

Sometimes there's a solid reason--the person was a bad fit for the team, or moved away for personal reasons, or was offered an opportunity too great to pass up. In those cases, even if it's a difficult transition, it feels fundamentally right.

But what about the rest?

Keeping your best employees starts with understanding why people leave. Here are seven of the top reasons:

1. Stagnation

People don't want to think they're locked into a groove and will come to the same place and do the same thing every day for the next 20 or 40 years. People want to feel that they're still moving forward and growing in their professional life. They want to have something to aspire to. If there's no career lad…

Justin Bieber and Sophia Richie split after months of dating

Singer, Justin Bieber deleted his Instagram account some months ago when fans started saying mean things about his model girlfriend, Sofia Richie. He even got into a war of words with his ex- girlfriend Selena Gomez over her interference in his relationship with Sophia so it's a little bit of a surprise that he has called it quits Sophia.
According to Us Weekly sources, the couple ended its relationship after six very intense and equally controversial weeks. Bieber and Richie first made real waves when they took a trip to Tokyo together some months ago. She even accompanied him on a leg of his world tour and cozying up to him on the street... in the backseat of a car... and even in a hotel room.

However, according to Us Weekly insider, things started “cooling off” between Justin and Sofia earlier this month. And the insider confirmed the split.
Just a few days ago, Richie spoke publicly for the first time about Bieber to Billboard saying:

“Justin is very easy to talk to, and …

Chris Rock's girlfriend doesn't really care for marriage

Chris Rock's girlfriend actress Megalyn Echikunwoke doesn't seem that interested in marriage. When People magazine caught up with her on the Emmy red carpet and asked about her rumored engagement to the legendary comedian, she said.
"What can I say? I have a boyfriend. He's a comedian. He's funny. He's really wonderful. He's a very dreamy guy, and I'm a lucky girl. I'm actually not a huge believer in marriage. If he made a really good case for it, I guess. I guess there's this misconception about once you're engaged how could you possibly want anything more than marriage and kids.
It's kind of like lock down a rich guy. I'm here to say that there's more to life than that, and this common lame notion that that's all a girl could possibly want in life is completely bullshit. So, I mean, I have a boyfriend who I love and that's all I need."

Hollywood actor Jim Carrey has been sued for allegedly obtaining drugs under a false name for his ex-girlfriend, who died of an overdose last year, court documents show.
Mark Burton, the estranged husband of Carrey's former partner Cathriona White, said the actor used his "immense wealth and celebrity status" to obtain prescription drugs illegally.
Carrey then allegedly tried to hide his involvement.

The actor has not commented.
White, who was 30 and originally from Ireland, was found dead after overdosing on prescription drugs including Ambien, Propranolol and Percocet, according to the coroner's office.
Reports at the time said the couple had an on-off relationship and had broken up again days before her death.
According to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Carrey, 54, obtained the drugs under the fake name "Arthur King".
He then "took steps to conceal and obfuscate his involvement and culpability".
