What is Veterans Day?

Veterans Day is a day to pay homage to the Veterans who served the nation risking life and making it safe for the entire country. Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, to honor military veterans, that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. Every year the entire State of America celebrates the day with respect and grandeur. Veterans Day 2016 will be celebrated around United States on 11th November, so check out the important details regarding the special day.


Why Veterans Day is celebrated?

If we turn to the pages of history, we will find that more than 48 million Americans served at the times of war and peace since 1776. The anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended with World War I. The U.S. President Woodrow Wilson took it as a opportunity and first proclaimed Armistice Day on November 11, 1919 that ultimately turn out to be as Veterans Day. The day is observed to show honour and respect to the heroism of veterans who died in service.

The celebration was a hope to all as it was thought that World War I would be “the war to end all wars,” but it did not happen the way all wanted and another war broke out in Europe within a few years later. It is very sad to say that in the following years, hundreds and thousands of Americans lost their lives in World War II and the Korean War.

 Alfred King, a shoe storeowner in 1953 in Emporia, Kansas, had an idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate veterans of all wars, not just those who served in World War I. He began a campaign to turn Armistice Day into “All” Veterans Day. The target was to spread the awareness of the sacrifices of veterans and make the new generations aware of the horror of war and the piece of history they should never forget.

Veterans Day Celebration

Today the day is still bearing its gravity among all with equal importance like before. Whole nation participates in it and celebrates it in various ways. The most important Veterans Day celebration occurs in the United States that takes place at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, where at 11 a.m., the time when the treaty was signed to achieve peace.

Apart from that, there are parades and patriotic songs and performances are observed to tribute the veterans. The US President takes part in the ceremony and delivers a patriotic speech remembering the sacrifices of the veterans. The day is celebrated as a national holiday.

Rockstar Games have been a part of our lives since a long time now and since the day 1, the company have always given us the reason to stick to its games. They have a lot of games under their gold belt but the one that got them so much money is the GTA or Grand Theft Auto series.


To start with their history, GTA Vice City was the breakthrough that earned them unparalleled fame that no other game maker could. Then came their GTA San Andreas which was hardcore gamer’s best option. It featured a full fledged normal thug life gaming which was not limited like the GTA Vice City but had a huge map to play on. Then the company decided to launch GTA 3, GTA IV and GTA V which were great in every possible way. Now, Rockstar Games have hinted a huge announcement of launching GTA VI in this quarter only. Sims 5 will also release on same year.

Let us have a look at the points where Rockstar games will improve their GTA Series and what new to expect from GTA VI.

  1. GTA VI might feature real time international maps. Yes, you heard that right, GTA VI team is planning to include maps that are real-time and are as accurate as real time maps are. Rockstar games previously patented the name of GTA Tokyo and went to Japan to see how the streets in Tokyo are built and that is when they decided to scrap the project because of the problems in building the replicas in the game.
  2. Game play has always been the highlight of any GTA Game and that’s why, GTA VI is going to be no exception but better only. GTA VI is likely to be launched first in Playstation 5 and xBox Two and it is likely to feature different screen quality options as well. If you have aq 1080p screen, then you can select a 1080 p resolution or if you have a 4K Screen resolution then you can go for the qHD resolution.
  3. Female character- with this addition in the game, Rockstar Games is also stepping up and making its game available for its female fans as well. The Rockstar games is really excited about its female character and what we are hoping is that they are going to make the character a bad ass one.
  4. The GTA V edition saw enormous amounts of stunt opportunities for its users and yes everyone loved them very much so this time we will be in treat to see even better stunts and amazing cars as well. The last time (GTA V) we did not have any complaints in the department and the next time (GTA VI) we will be very much surprised. Rumors are that GTA Team is trying to get licensed vehicles in the GTA VI and if yes, that would be the best thing!
  5. Release Date- Rockstar Games will make announcement for the GTA VI in the first Quarter. So the expected release date for the GTA VI will be in the 3rd Quarter around December or so.

All the hardcore gamers will be waiting for the GTA VI very patiently and no wonder if this becomes the best seller soon after its release!


France vs. Racism: Accusations and Logic

France finally declared their 23 man squad for UEFA Euro Cup 2016 amidst a lot of hubbub. French coach, Didier Deshamps made one of the most balanced and powerful teams ever possible in the history of the nation. However he had to make a few very difficult choices when it came to choosing the most deserving players. Deshamps left out Benzema from the final list. This sparked a lot of controversy which was spearheaded by some of the most famous personalities of the nation.


Befuddling Accusations

Jamel Debbouze is a well known stand-up comedian and actor who is currently responsible to rekindling the controversy regarding taints of racism in the team selection process. He is of Franco-Moroccan origin and he lamented on television saying, “None of our representatives” have been chosen for the main French team. This followed a much debated accusation brought on by Eric Cantona. Cantona is a former Manchester United and France striker who accused Deshamps of excluding Karim Benzema and Hatem ben Afra. do not forget to check France VS Switzerland Live Streaming.

Why are They Nothing Less than Ridiculous?

These accusations were quite baffling as the current French team is one of the most multi-racial team ever possible. And as far the accusation for not including anyone from North African origins, Deshamps selected Adil Rami. Rami is a talented central defender of Moroccan origin, born and brought up in Corsica. He was added to the 23-man squad evidently due to the injuries sustained by other players.

Why was Benzema Excluded?

As far as Benzema is concerned, he has been entangled in some legal issues which include blackmailing his French teammate. It is evident from player performance that if he had not been busy with his legal problems he would have been the first choice for Deshamps’ 23-man squad. On the other hand, Arfa was never a sure pick due to his inability to perform constantly. He is quite an unstable player with flares of brilliance. He was always included in the larger training squad but when it came to the final 23 he did not have sufficient consistency to play with the big guns.

The Harsh Truth

A former professional coach from France confirmed, “Race is always a very sensitive issue. Even if there were not North African players in the main team it wouldn’t be Deshamps’ fault. Benzema would have definitely made the cut if he had not been tangled in legal outcomes of his actions.” It is worth mentioning that, the original squad indeed did not feature any players of Algerian, Moroccan or Tunisian origin. However the statistics, health conditions, legal issues and current squad analysis shows that it was in no way a conscious decision. This has not dissuaded either Cantona or Debbouze from making direct accusations against Deshamps for bringing in racial factors as far as the selection for the main team was concerned. do no forget to check Euro Cup 2016 Schedule.


Is iPhone 7 truly worth the wait?

2015 was a year of disappointment of all the Apple fanatics. Not only did Apple do little to upgrade the new models, in fact iPhone SE, 9.7 inch iPad Pro and the new MacBook all look like clones of their predecessors. This dampened the spirits of a number of veterans and as a result Apple is now looking forward to a 20 percent decrease in iPhone sales in the first quarter following the iPhone 7 launch. iPhone 6 was considered quite a revolutionary model by the makers which bombed in the market. Now the question is how much magic will iPhone 7 bring with it to revive the iPhone market?


What is really boring us

It is especially tough since the demise of Steve Jobs who was the main thinker behind Apple and the lack of evolution in the designs of the phones post iPhone 4 makes that quite evident. Apple has earned the condescension of many dedicated followers and scorns of millions of critics by trying to introduce insipid products like the iPencil for exorbitant prices. Now the new generation of iPhone to be launched later this year is Apple’s only chance to redeem itself in the global market.

Something new to be excited about

Most of the “news” you had heard before was mostly banter from the electronic market. Now it is time to unveil the true bits which have been procured directly from the different inside sources in Apple. In addition to the much expected specs upgrade we got last year with 6S we will definitely be getting a second rear camera for close-ups. This may be a new venture for Apple; however this is an old stint in the international market. One could say Apple has drawn inspiration from LG G5 and Huawei P9. What we really want is a smoother zooming option which is not an expert in blurring the image during the pinch and zoom process we use today! However on the brighter side, the lens on the rear end of the phone will be flattened to make the surface completely smooth and classy.

What makes the wait truly worth it?

What is exciting us most is the fresh addition of a digital home button with touch sensors. This will finally make the front face of the iPhone completely smooth and remove the physical button which divides the display from the bottom. This will definitely improve the look of iPhone 7 making the front flush and the entire body sleeker. Other rumors in our radar include the removal of the 3.5 mm jack and the inclusion of a second speaker at the bottom. Apple is finally including dust-proof and waterproof features and Smart Connect options to make the device more user friendly and accessible. iPhone 7 will come with iOS 10.

So what do we think about iPhone 7?

What we would actually love more is a better battery life. However Apple seems to be maliciously silent on that front. But that does not keep us from keeping our fingers crossed as we do hear whispers from various sources about pending breakthroughs in battery technology at the Apple labs. So all in all, we think that iPhone 7 may finally start the design revolution which Apple has been waiting for, for the past 2 years now.
