Massive snake falls through
jamuna news desk: Snakes are terrifying creatures and while people are always wary of encountering a snake in the wild or sneaking inside the house from narrow openings, a snake falling from above is the last thing one would expect.
According to a report in The Morning Bulletin, Chantal Vaughan discovered a hole in her gym’s
ceiling,but only thought that a possum, a tree-dwelling Australasian marsupial, had fallen through the roof. Because Vaughan’s Bokwa CQ gym in Rockhampton, Australia was often subjected to possum’s trespassing, she took the problem lightly.
This was until two days
later,when the cleaner at her gym texted her saying that it wasn’t exactly a possum, but another animal at that a huge, terrifying snake, that was the unwelcomedguest this time.
Chantal shared pictures of the guest, who was always around for two days with no one suspecting as classes went on. She also wrote that it didn’t create any trouble for those who relocated it, but attributed the good behaviour to the snake clearly appearing full.

Samsung keep top spots in
jamuna news desk: Samsung and Apple maintained their leadership in the smartphone market in early 2017 while Chinese-based Huawei's strong growth cemented its number three position, a market tracker said Thursday.
Research firm IDC said overall smartphone shipments grew 4.3 percent in the first quarter, slightly better than its prior forecast, to 347 million units.
"The first quarter smartphone results further prove that the smartphone industry is not dead and that growth still exists," said IDC analyst Ryan Reith.
"There is no question that 2016 was a pivotal year for the industry as growth dipped to low single digits for the first time. However, we believe the industry will show some rebound in 2017, and the strong first quarter results certainly support this argument."
Reith said the 2017 market will feel the impact of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 flagship handset, and a widely expected announcement from Apple for its new iPhone later this year.
According to the survey, Samsung led the market in the first quarter with a 22.8 percent share to 14.9 percent for Apple, with little growth for the top two vendors.
But Huawei's sales jumped 21.7 percent to give it a 9.8 percent share, and fellow Chinese makers Oppo and Vivo, the number four and five vendors, respectively, also boosted their sales.
IDC said the bulk of smartphone growth is likely to come from low-cost handset makers.
"Although we have seen an abundance of premium redesigned flagships that just entered the market, moving forward, we still expect most of the growth to come from more affordable models in a variety of markets," said IDC's Anthony Scarsella.
"Despite all the popularity and media hype around premium devices, we continue to witness a shift in many companies' portfolios geared towards affordable devices with premium-type styling compared to flagship models."
He added that makers "have started to implement a single premium design language that ultimately blurs the lines between the high-end and the low-end, allowing the average consumer to jump on the brand without a hefty upfront investment."
The report is based on preliminary quarterly estimates, with Apple due to report sales figures next week.
How to Keep Your Skin Fresh &
jamuna lifestyle desk: With summer come a host of skin care problems. From acne to rashes, oily skin to breakouts, it is nothing short of a nightmare so it is very important to beat the heat by altering not only your
wardrobe,but also your skin care routine, says experts.
#Exfoliate your body after a shower
A common mistake which people tend to make is to exfoliate before a shower.
Cleaning up the dead cells before a shower is likely to cause more irritation and itching on the skin as in that point of time your skin is dry.
It is advisable to moisturise your skin with an oil before a shower and exfoliate it after the shower. Exfoliating your skin after a shower will help remove the dead skin effortlessly. However, make sure that you use a good scrub which is appropriate for your skin. You can also use a soft towel to remove the dead skin.
#Use sunscreen before stepping out in the sun
The sunscreen is your best friend this season. While having a healthy tan looks good, too much sun can harm the skin. Constant exposure to
sunfor a very long time can damage your skin. Pick a sunscreen which has a minimum SPF of 30 and applyit a good 20 minutes before you leave your house.
In the long run, the sunscreen also helps in reducing spots and delays the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Similarly, make sure that after sun care is taken care of, you need to wash your face with cold water and moisturise it with a calm moisturiser.
#Hydrate your body with moisturiser
In cities that face dry, scorching heat, the moisture present in the skin tends to get sucked out. Hence, it is necessary to constantly keep hydrating the body with a moisturiser, preferably moisturising milk than a cream as it spreads easily on your body and is non-sticky.
Also, make sure that you use a moisturiser on slightly damp skin, as it glides easily and covers a larger portion of your body. Use a scented moisturiser only if it suits your skin or else it may cause skin irritation. Even in cities with
highlevel of humidity, the constant sweating can cause irritation and body odour. A good moisturiser works there well too.
#Moisturise your skin before shaving
Summers mean shorts, skirts and sleeveless dresses for days together. It’s best to stay away from harmful creams and painful waxing as they can damage your skin and cause rashes if you have a sensitive skin. Also, why cover yourself in this heat for 15 days until your next waxing session? Switch to shaving as it is the safest method of hair removal and is also recommended by dermatologists.
Use a razor that has skin conditioning ingredients like Gillette Venus Breeze, which comes with
in-builtbody buttersand glycerin that will help keep your skin moisturised before and after the shave.
#Wait at least 24 hours before hitting the beach or pool
The newly shaved area will be sensitive to the sun, salt and chlorine. It is better to wait before taking a dive to avoid itchiness, burning and irritation. Also, apply sunscreen before and as soon as it gets washed off, after a swim to avoid unnecessary tanning.
Gorge on berries and fresh fruits: Summers in India mean seeing heaps and heaps of the king of fruits, mango, everywhere along with a plethora of berries. The skin reflects what you eat so feast yourself on the summer produce. They are rich and high
onvitamins and increase the release of antioxidants giving you the perfect glowing skin.
