Kowalski. ‘Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight’ is a polish movie, originally titled “W lesie dziś nie zaśnie nikt.” The film follows a group of tech-addicted teenagers who decide to go offline camp at the forest and end up encountering a deadly danger lurking in the woods.The movie was originally intended for Friday the 13th release in theatresOriginally, it was intended for a theatrical release on the 13th of March, on Friday, making it one of the many spooky movies released on a Friday the 13th. The film garnered many positive reviews from the critics, and despite that, it was released on the streaming giant exclusively for Poland a week later and became the most-watched Netflix films in the country. Now, the movie is getting a Netflix treatment and is scheduled to release on October 28.It’s not a typical horror movie!Nobody sleeps in the Woods Tonight is a complete nag on the horror genre. It’s not one of the typical horror movies you think it would be! It’s an impressive fusion of some iconic movies including The Goonies, The Terminator, and even He-Man movies. Just like these movies, Kowalski’s piece is more of a dark thriller.The movie is set in the 90sThe story revolves around a group of teenagers, dressed up in the 90s fashion, encountering the evil lurking in the woods. The fans of Stranger Things might like to watch this movie. The movie is enriched with some wonderful characters!Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight’s cast includes Sebastian Dela as Jock Daniel.

Spoiler alert: don’t get too attached with the characters as they may, ahem, get killed one by one. Check out the trailer here:
Netflix is releasing a feature-length documentary film about the discovery of the tomb of Wahtye, an Ancient Egyptian priest who died in the Old Kingdom about 4500 years ago.The new Netflix documentary titled “Secrets of the Saqqara Tomb” is scheduled to drop on Netflix on October 28. It documents the excavation of a tomb that is referred to as “once-in-a-generation” discovery because of how well preserved it is despite being centuries old.Under the direction of James Tovell, a\the film follows a team of Egyptian priest and archaeologists as they explore the area of Saqqara necropolis which remained untouched for centuries. The team unearthed a series of passageways, statues, shafts, and tombs that people are referring to Egypt's biggest discovery in almost half a century! Check out the trailer here until the movie releases:The whole world was stunned by the discovery of the tomb of Wahtye, as it is the most significant one in recent years. However, there are some things which haven't been told in the documentary. Wahtye’s tomb was impressively well-preserved when it was discovered; it has never been opened, touched, or looted ever before. With the discoveries at Saqqara, it's groundbreaking as the archaeological evidence for a vast funeral industry is revealed and documented in detail for the first time ever!Source: National GeographicThe teams were astonished to find 55 statues carved into the tomb’s walls. It was quite surprising because generally such decorations were only reserved to the tombs of the pharaohs. And the fact that the person didn't belong to the royal house caught most of the interest of the archaeologists.Source: National GeographicIt was clear that Wahtye wasn’t an ordinary person! Along with the human mummies, archaeologists also found first-ever mummified lion cubs in the soil of Egypt. It was found within the walls of a temple belonging to the Ancient Egyptian cat goddess Bastet. This discovery was the most significant one, as it helped archaeologists to understand new things about the kinds of animals buried in ancient Egypt.Inside the tomb, archaeologists also found the bones of a family. Dr. Amira Shaheen, Professor of Rheumatology discovered that those bones were bloated, signaling that the entire family died because of some epidemic, such as malaria. If it turned out to be true, it would be a first-ever documented case of malaria in over 1000 years.Source: Getty Images These spine-chilling facts have already convinced us to binge-watch the film on 28th October. How about you?

Google has put on a doodle for Dr. Stamen Grigorov on account of his 142nd birthday.Are you scratching your heads, thinking who he is, what he has done, and why he is being honored by Google Doodle?Well, don't worry! We’ve got all the answers.Who was Stamen Grigorov?Born on 27th October 1878 in a small village of Studen Izvor in Western Bulgaria, Grigorov is widely known for discovering Lactobacillus Bulgaricus, the bacterium responsible for the fermentation of milk into yoghurt.He was also responsible for the development of the world’s first tuberculosis vaccine.After developing an interest in science from a very young age, Grigorov eventually earned a doctorate from the Medical University of Geneva, Switzerland. After his wedding in 1904, Grigorov returned to the university to work as a Research Assistant.Why is being honored with a Google Doodle?When he was in university, Grigorov’s wife used to send him some Bulgarian culinary staple, which had sour milk in it.He was fascinated with its taste and health benefits and decided to assess it under a microscope.At last, after thousands of experiments, he finally discovered what he was desperately seeking for: the rod-shaped microorganism essential for milk’s fermentation into yogurt. This was one of the Grigorov's discoveries.Later, the discovered bacterium was renamed as Lactobacillus Bulgaricus in the honor of Grigorov’s home country.In the same year, Grigorov took over a key position as Chief Physician at a local hospital in his hometown of Trun.In 1906, he published an innovative paper describing the first use of penicillin fungi against tuberculosis.Throughout his life, he continued working as a doctor and saved hundreds of lives along the way. Five fascinating facts about Dr. Stamen Grigorov:The man responsible for identifying fermentation bacteria has led a very interesting life. Here’s what you need to know about him:1. Grigorov was determined to fight against Tuberculosis:Discovering a bacteria wasn’t only a feather in his cap; Grigirov also contributed to the development of the world’s first vaccine of tuberculosis. He worked as the Chief Physician at the main hospital in the city of Tran in Bulgaria. In 1906, he published a groundbreaking scientific report “The Anti-tuberculosis vaccine,” which detailed his scientific research into the application of penicillin fungi for the treatment of tuberculosis. When the paper was published, the scientific community showed great interest in Grigorov’s vaccine (treatment). However, his scientific experiments “in-vitro” and “in-vivo” on animals and later on human patients, he successfully displayed and explained the healing effect of penicillin in the treatment of tuberculosis.He didn't get the credit for what he deserved, as Bulgaria Radio said it was “an off confluence of events” that resulted in Grigorov not being recognized for contributing to a tuberculosis vaccine. Scientists Camille Guerin and Albert Calmette got most of the credits for the vaccine development. It was reported that Bulgarian medical institution was not powerful enough to support Grigorov’s findings, because of which he couldn’t get the credit and recognition for his findings.2. The world’s first and only museum of Yogurt is located at Grigorov’s hometown of Studen IzvorSour milk is a commonly used ingredient in Bulgarian cuisine. When Grigorov was working as a research assistant at the Medical university of Genera in Switzerland, his wife used to send him some Bulgarian yogurt as a receiving gift.He was curious about its flavor and health benefits so he decided to study it under a microscope. It was reported that Grigorov used a pot from his homeland known as a “rukatka.” After Grigorov’s findings, the Bulgarian yogurt became very much “in vogue” in the 1930’s and 30s.All thanks to Grigorov who first discovered the microorganism that produced the yogurt. In recognition of Grigorov's hometown, rod-shaped bacterium was named as the Lactobacillus Bulgaricus. In honor of his findings, the Museum of Yogurt was built in his hometown of Studen Izvor (translated as Cold Spring) in 2007. The museum includes all the documents of Grigorov’s life, from his birth to the time he died. So, if you’re curious to know more about his findings, you know where to visit!3. Grigorov also served as a medical officer during World War 1Contrary to the common belief that a scientist’s place is only at his lab, Grigorov was also a war hero. Grigorov served as a medical officer in the Bulgarian army in World War 1. During this war, Bulgaria joined it’s allegiance to Germany, Austria-Hungary and Turkey. Over 75,000 Bulgarian soldiers died during the war.4. A glacier in Antarctica was named after Grigorov in honor of his workThe Grigorov Glacier in Antarctica was named in honor of the famed Bugarian scientist and doctor. The Glacier is 1.1 miles long and just under 1 mile in length. The glacier was named after Grigorov in June 2010, according to the Australian government’s website. It is located on the Albena Peninsula on Brabant Island in the Palmer Archipelago.Grigorov is now among 300 medical professionals who have glaciers by their name in Antarctica.5. Do you know why Bulgarian peasants have increased lifespans? It’s because of the Yogurt!There is a Russian scientist named Ilya Mechnikov who studied Grigorov’s findings and discovered a connection between the amount of yogurt consumed by Bulgarian peasants and the length of their lives. His study involved 37 countries of the world, among which Machnikov found that most people of Bulgaria have a life span of more than 100 years. Later, he discovered that the proteolytic bacteria that is essentially responsible for ageing in the bowel was repressed by the bacteria found in yogurt. Since people of Bulgaria consume yogurt extensively in their diet, they get to live more years than any other people in the country. After his discovery, yogurt is now linked with the reduction of cholesterol in the human body, impression of cancer and also responsible for suppressing the causes of unhealthy bacteria. So the next time you’re eating yogurt, you know who to remember- Stamen Grigorov!
The numbers are in and they’re predictable as per the new analysis: White supremacists in the United States are responsible for the majority of the terrorist attacks that have occurred in the last eight months of 2020. This information has been derived by the nonpartisan think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies. According to research, white supremacists who are the anti-government extremists from the violent far-right, and some involuntary incels have conducted at least 67 percent of all these domestic terrorist attacks. As mentioned above, CSIS has analyzed this report from 61 incidents from Jan. 1, 2020 to August 31, 2020. Terrorism can be defined as a deliberate use of violence by non-state actors to achieve political goals and create a broad psychological impact. Therefore, incidents of hate crime, protests, and riots were excluded from the research. So, the researchers acknowledge hate crimes and terrorism are interlinked, but hate crimes are not always violent. During the protests over the summer, many far-right terrorists targeted the peaceful protestors. These people were against the Black Lives Matter movement (maybe Donald Trump too) and attacked with vehicles to cause intimidation at the very least. Far-left terrorist attacks increased in 2020, whereas the far-right terrorist attacked stayed the same compared to last year. Although the violence was high, only five people lost their lives, which is low compared to past incidents.Researchers warn us that, in the coming years, this violence could increase due to the political and social divide, the pandemic, and worsening economic conditions.
The next time you come across someone crying over face masks during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, simply show them this slow motion video. In the video above, Gav from The Slow Mo Guys filmed himself counting out loud, coughing, and sneezing at a speed of 1000fps. The coughs and sneezes are as gross as you’d expect. However, just look at the number of particles ejected from this person’s mouth even when he speaks at a fairly normal volume range. Guest Anthony Fauci – Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – when he watched this footage back together: "I think what you've just shown is a graphically beautiful demonstration of the importance of wearing masks and face coverings.”"We know now that about 40-45 percent of the people who are infected don't have any symptoms, and yet they have virus in their nasopharynx. And we know that a substantial proportion of infections are transmitted from someone who doesn't have any symptoms.”"So people have an understandable but incorrect interpretation that the only time you transmit infection is when you're coughing or sneezing all over someone. What they don't appreciate is that if you are speaking, even if you don't speak loudly — and if you are singing, which is even worse than just speaking — you have these particles that come out that can stay in the air for a period of time."This is actually the same experiment that was earlier published in July in the medical journal Thorax. Now tell us one thing, can you unsee this video?
If you missed it, NASA has managed to pull off a complex maneuver – it gathered dust from the asteroid Bennu which was rock speeding through space around 200 million miles away from Earth. The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft finished this job excellently, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the lid jammed open, causing some of the sample to leak into space. The principle investigator of this mission, Dante Lauretta, said: "The big concern now is that particles are escaping because we're almost a victim of our own success. Large particles left the flap open. Particles are diffusing out into space. They aren't moving fast, but nonetheless, it's valuable scientific material."The spacecraft retrieved a minute piece of Bennu on Tuesday in just about 16 seconds. Now after the leak, NASA has changed some of its plans. Apparently, the agency intends to store a collection device instead of a capsule returned as soon as possible which means they’re skipping one of the steps. NASA is aware that it collected more than enough, but it’s still unsure of the exact size and will only be able to find out after it reaches Earth in 2023. “I was pretty concerned when I saw these images coming in, and I think the most prudent course of action is to very safely stow what we have and minimize any future mass loss.” – said Lauretta. This was the first time NASA was able to collect any material from an asteroid. Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for science said: "Bennu continues to surprise us with great science and also throwing a few curveballs. And although we may have to move more quickly to stow the sample, it’s not a bad problem to have. We are so excited to see what appears to be an abundant sample that will inspire science for decades beyond this historic moment."
After the livestream on Friday, iFixit published a complete breakdown of its teardown for both iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro on its YouTube channel. And as we guessed it, both phones are exactly the same inside and out. Like, the displays are interchangeable and they can be swapped between the two phones. This makes complete sense keeping in mind that the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro feature 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR screens.Now when you keep aside the camera shields, it’s tough to separate the two phones. This is when iFixit pointed out that the phones are similar in layout – so if 12 Pro has additional camera sensor and a LiDar scanner, the other one packs the plastic spacer. Hence, if you’re not familiar with the new lineup, you should know that iPhone 12 includes a dual camera module whereas the 12 Pro has a triple camera setup along with an additional 12-megapixel telephoto lens. When you compare the similarities between the two phones, the teardown points out that apart from the serial numbers, the logic boards on the phones are basically identical. In addition, both the phones feature similar Face ID, flash modules, and Lightning connector assemblies. You must be wondering what the situation is with the battery life – the exact size. First of all, both phones have the exact 2,815 mAh battery.Apple has also suggested that the new A14 Bionic chip helps out with that. So, on a busy day, the 12 Pro will last you for approximately 7 and half hours. The battery is no longer in the basic L-shaped design, but it’s the same as its predecessors. As per the rumors, Apple has used the parts that were cheaper and cost low with the addition of 5G connectivity. Finally, iFixit has given the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro a 6 out of 10 on the quotient of reparability.
You might have come across journalists claiming that they have received PlayStation 5 units for review and you may have watched several PS5 unboxing videos. And today, we’re going to give you a closer look at the PS5’s new DualSense controller – credit to the unboxing video posted by Austin Evans on his YouTube. This is what we already knew – a D-pad and four face buttons on the top half of the body, two analog sticks at the bottom half of the body, four triggers, and a touchpad right in the middle. This video takes an objective look at the features and the new design of the controller. However, there’s one thing that you should know: Evans has not yet used the controller with the PS5, and so you won’t get a review of the DualSense’s new haptic feedback and adaptive triggers in proper action. However, Evans managed to connect the controller with a wire to a Surface Laptop Go and also to a wireless Google Pixel 5. In addition, he played a game on Microsoft’s xCloud cloud gaming service on the Pixel. His PS4 recognized DualSense through a wired connection but the controller failed to do much except for picking up noises from the onboard microphone. The PS4 Pro followed suit, but couldn’t do much after getting wirelessly connected. He then tried to plug the DualSense controller to an Xbox Series X – it managed to charge itself. Evans then set aside the DualSense to look at the circuitry inside the controller and revealed that it has around 1,560mAh battery. One particularly cool detail led to the discovery that there are little bumps on the back of the DualSense that are miniscule versions of the PlayStation’s varied shaped face buttons. All in all, the DualSense looks like a good update to the trusty DualShock 4 and you must get your hands on them as soon as possible. The DualSense and the PlayStation 5 go on sale on 12th November!
How many times have you been to a McDonalds and you’re excited to dive right into the sugary and cold ice-cream cone but… the machine is broken?Well, we have a savior! A 24-year-old engineer has launched McBroken – a website which aims to end these heartbreaking incidents once and for all. The site shows a map of every McDonald’s location in the US with the help of dots. Now the McDonald's ice-cream machines that work are denoted by a green dot and the ones that don’t are denoted by a red one. Next, there is a column on the right that shows statistics of the broken machines in the US – currently 15.22% just in New York. Rashiq Zahid is the one who came up with this wonderful idea! In July he visited McDonald’s in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin and tried to order a McSundae with help from the touchscreen kiosk. To his bad luck, it wasn’t available. He then tried to order from the mobile app, and a similar response was received. “I love poking around in different apps and just looking at the security features and the internal APIs. I am pretty familiar with how to reverse-engineer apps. I was like ‘Okay, this should be pretty easy.” – Said Zahid.He also tried to create an API to add a McSundae from every McDonald’s location to his cart every few minutes. Next thing he knows, he’s blocked. After several failed attempts, Zahid figured out the magic time frame. This way, his bot tried to add the McSundae every 30 minutes – successfully! Also, this way, McBroken finds out that the location’s machine is working. However, if it can’t get added, the location gets a red dot. This trick was first tested in Germany in approximately 1,500 locations. He biked his way to every location in Berlin and manually placed orders to find out if the bot was returned with corrected information. It was an effective way! Now he has expanded his vision to the States. “I was like, this would be pretty interesting for Germany, but it would be amazing for the US, which is basically the capital of McDonald’s.”– said Zahid.Now here’s a crazy fact: Within 20 minutes of its launch, the site received 10,000 visitors which made the site a bit sluggish and it finally ended up crashing. This was bound to happen, since Zahid is running this site on a server that charges only $5 a month. With this site, let’s hope that McDonald’s never stops its operation. Only a true fan would go to such lengths though particularly in the United States!

The trolling game is too damn high!Just take a quick look at the TrumpCovidPlan.com page, and you’ll understand what we’re talking about.At first, it looks like a legitimate error message, but it turns out Joe Biden is actually trolling the current President of America, Donald Trump! “Not found,” the front page reads, exactly the same way as the usual 404 error page reads. “The Trump plan to defeat the Coronavirus and reopen safely does not exist,” the error page further reads.Biden’s election team has gone completely savage this time, and we’re wondering if Trump could really have a come back? Joe Biden tweeted the website page on Friday, stating “After eight months of this pandemic, we finally found President Trump’s plan to beat COVID-19” The sarcasm was too damn brutal, because The Trump Administration has no plans whatsoever!After clicking on ‘Learn More’ on the page, it will expand to a slide show of President Trump’s statements regarding the virus management juxtaposed with the number of deaths caused by the virus. Looks like they have really done their homework!Biden has repeatedly roasted Trump several times for his mishandling of the pandemic, including at Thursday’s presidential debate. He repeatedly criticized Trump’s administration for not having a plan despite over 220,000 Americans having died so far. “Anybody that is responsible for that many deaths should not remain President of the United States,” Biden said at the debate.On Biden's page, you’ll see a series of damning quotes from President Trump about the pandemic, along with the death rate of Americans at the time he said those statements. Biden and his election team know how to troll the President, and we’re quite loving it! While it is a smart action for the election campaign, it also gives a striking overview of how the President’s negligence has cost us in real terms.
During the third and the final presidential debate on Thursday evening, Trump called New York City a “ghost town” and New Yorkers are not liking it!After the comments, New Yorkers went online to defend their city (as usual, with memes). TBH, New York City is not in any way a ghost town, but actually far from it! Citizens took to twitter and explained what kind of, ummm, “ghosts” are found in NY, including the scenes from Ghostbusters.

First things first – Ouija: Blood Ritual is not another chapter in the economic successes of Ouija films. The original movie was actually a commercial success, but it failed to make an impact critically. In fact, several audience members had a poor time in the cinema hall as they came out wishing they could get their money back. But that was not it – there was a follow-up film which was ten times superior to the original film. The second one was a classic horror that left us shaking to the core. Anyway, it’s not like there’s a cult following of the film, so what made the filmmakers come up with yet another unrelated film that is undoubtedly the worst movie ever, like it will beat Cats (2019) in the category. Here’s the movie synopsis:The footage of three filmmakers shooting a web series has been recovered. Intending to debunk famous internet urban legends and rituals, they perform a blood ritual that summons an ancient primordial entity in the process. As the spirit’s unstoppable evil seeps into their daily lives, the trio is left with a single choice: submit to its will – or die.In the first scene, the filmmakers opted for the true but stale technique in which text is put on the screen which goes along the lines of “The following video was recovered from *blank’s* cellphone. It has not been altered. The footage you are about to see is directly from their phone”. You’ll find this technique in several movies like The Blair Witch Project. But you have to agree that this tactic has become predictable and honestly dumb. You’ll most probably roll your eyes at such scenes than get chills down your spine. Director Dustin Mills probably thought that this scene would take the horror up a notch but it unfortunately fell flat. But you know what, it’s not exactly the screenplay that makes us cringe – it’s the acting and overall story. Like, there are three filmmakers aiming to create a web series in which they reveal popular urban legends on the internet. We’re sure that you’ve heard of this story a thousand times. Okay fine, if done the right way, you might hit it out of the park but it’s damn predictable. The scenes were stretched for far too long and, the by the end of the seventy-seventh minute, you’d want to yawn and grab a cup of coffee to recover from the tedious story. Obviously, the film was low-budgeted, but the least the filmmaker could have done was work on the script and make the scenes actually scary. Anyway, if you’re interested in wasting your time on an “unscary” horror movie, give it a watch. We suggest otherwise.
Coca-Cola has decided to end the supply and production of 200 brands, which is around half of its brand lineage. The company has announced that it will discontinue some of its beverages as they have become outdated. Some of them include Tab, Zico, and Odwalla. You might think why the company has taken such a drastic step, is it facing any financial loss or hard time in the market? But this move will actually help them focus on the most profitable offerings. This way, Coca-Cola can pay more attention to Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Topo Chico Hard Seltzer, and AHA, which is a caffeinated seltzer launched by the company a little over a year ago. According to CEO James Quincey, the list has already been approved. He didn’t provide us with any specific names but he did say that the hydration category will experience more cuts. So you can expect to see Vitamin Water, Zico, Powerade, and Dasani out of the picture.Apparently, the water and sports drink volume dropped a significant number in the third quarter. Quincy has said that a lot of the brands that will face cutting have a small market in select countries. When you compare the successful and unsuccessful brands of Coca-Cola, you’ll see a stark difference. It’s obvious that the brands that underperform have absolutely no scale and they end up collecting a2 percent total revenue. This is understood as a strategy by the company that will eventually pay off in the long run. With the restaurants shuttered, the company faced a significant drop and its revenue declined 9 percent, which amounts to$8.7 billion.
