It's that time of the year again. No, not Christmas. The time for the Youtube Rewind. And like a gift that keeps on giving, YouTube Rewind continues last year's trend of being an absolute dud. YouTube Rewind started as something special - it became a collaborative effort between the celebrated YouTubers on the platform, irrespective of who they were -- creators, actors, musicians, and more -- and the rewind would always be something that fans on the platform looked forward to, for summing up the best bits of YouTube in a single video. And to watch Lilly Singh dive into a pool of balls. But Lilly Singh has now moved onto her own late-night show, and YouTube also seems to have moved on from making good quality videos. Last year's video was the most disliked video in the history of YouTube. This year, YouTube may outdo itself. If you are into numbers, we're currently at 1.2 million dislikes at the time of writing this. So what went wrong (read: again)? YouTube Rewind 2019 is perhaps … [Read more...] about YouTube Rewind 2019 Seems to Have Outdone Itself in Being Bad, ‘Lazy, and Low Budget’
The animal rights group will take over Sydney’s Pitt Street Mall tomorrow to barbecue a “dog” in the middle of the shopping precinct for an hour to raise awareness that dogs are “no different to lamb, cows or chicken”. PETA will stand in the middle of the mall from 10am tomorrow under a banner that reads “If You Wouldn’t Eat a Dog, Why Eat a Lamb? Go Vegan!” PETA’s Emily Rice told news.com.au the barbecued dog was fake, made by a British prop designer, but the organisation was adamant it would still send a strong message. “We’ll have a barbecue chef there running through the motions of barbecuing a dog. It’s staged but I can tell you, the dog isn’t pretty,” Ms Rice said. Shoppers heading through Pitt Street Mall will see a barbecued ‘dog’ tomorrow.

An explosion of a heating gas pipe killed at least 11 people and injured 42 others during a wedding ceremony in western Iran, the country’s state TV reported on Friday.The report said five children and five women were among those killed in the explosion, which took place late on Thursday evening in the predominantly Kurdish city of Saqqez, about 450 km west of the capital, Tehran.

Sanjay Parmar (42), a rickshaw driver, filed the complaint at Danilimda police station, claiming that his second wife, whom he had married after the demise of the first, and had then divorced on November 30, had allegedly stolen the jewellery from the house after coming to stay with him for a couple of days after signing the divorce papers.
