Julian Assange's rape investigation dropped by Sweden
Top prosectuor of Sweden, Marianne Ny, has dropped the case involving Julian Assange's alledged rape act, stating that it was impossible to give him notice. Assange has lived in the Ecudorian embassy since 2012. He fears that extradition to Sweden would then lead to extradition to the US, where he is wanted for leaking secrets. Ecuador has called for Assange to be granted safe passage through the country, however, London police have stated that they will have to arrest Assange if he were to leave, leaving Assange tied down to the embassy. The act of dropping the case is viewed to be a "total victory", as stated by Assange's Swedish lawyer, Per Samuelson. The case has been dropped, as Marianne Ny stated that by Assange remaining in the embassy, he has avoided the European Arrest Warrant, which would have extradited him to Sweden, and from there, potentially to the United States. Under Swedish law, cases need to be dealt with as swiftly as possible, and seeing as Assange wouldn't leave the embassy at all, it was pointless to keep the case ongoing. Not everything is perfect for Assange yet, as he is not given secure clearance to leave the embassy yet. He still has incurred legal issues in the UK, which can lead to him being arrested locally, potentially tried, and extradited to the US.

The Witcher on Netflix
Yes, you read the title correctly - The Witcher will have its own TV series. It will be a joint project of Netflix and the company for visual effects Platige Image. If this name is known for you, this is because Platige Image makes animations for many games.
Tomáš Bajginský, who led the animations in the game, will be the director of the series. Interestingly though, although The Witcher is mostly known from CD Projekt Red's role-playing games, the series will draw inspiration from the books. Andrew Sapkovski himself will help Netflix in the adaptation.
Producer of the series is Shan Daniel, who is among the creators of The Mummy.
So far, it is not yet clear whether the new series will be entirely animated or will be some sort of hybrid production.

Intel and AMD are about to Clash with High end gaming CPU's
Intel and AMD have forever had a rivalry in the PC world. In the past 10 years, Intel has definitely had the upper hand, however AMD's new Ryzen is started to shake things up. It offers more cores for less money and is the first CPU since 2004 which can truly compete with Intel. Intel isn't going to let this slide though, pulling out it's own 'heavy artillery' in the form of Core i9 Skylake-X and Kaby Lake variant, for the upcoming LGA2066 / X299 Platform.
Supposed leaks from both companies have slowly been appearing over the past week, and with all leaks, should be taken with a pinch of salt. So far, we can tell that for gaming, Intel will hold the advantage. With a 10 percent lead in clockspeed, theres no doubt people will be choosing intel over AMD.
However, outside of gaming, the entire story is rewritten. Intel holds a better clockspeed however AMD has many more cores and is able to 'smoke intel' in multi-threaded workloads like video editing.
Apple blames 'third-party' AAA Batteries for exploding Beats headphones
As you may or may not have heard, on February 19th, a woman on Flight 19 from Beijing, China to Melbourne, Australia was burned from an explosion from her Beats headphones. The Beats headphones were AAA-powered and were purchased back in 2014. Apple currently does not make AAA-powered headphones, so these have to have been an older model. Either way, after thorough investigation and questioning, Apple comes to a conclusion and blames the 'third-party' AAA batteries that were in the Beats. However, the possibility of the explosion being caused by the batteries is extremely probable, due to previous faults and scenarios with the Note 7 and hoverboards exploding and catching fire.
Apple patents a pizza box
What fits better with the word 'circular' than pizza? Well, with the construction of Apple's new circular campus, follows their patented pizza box. The patent lists Francesco Longoni, the head of Apple's food service team, as one of the inventors. The pizza box was created for the sole purpose of enabling employees to bring pizza from the cafeteria back to their offices and desks. The only differences from this box to a regular pizza box, or a plate what it's worth, is that this pizza box has a series of intricately placed holes to prevent the pizza crust from getting soggy. With how idiotic this patent sounds, believe it or not, Apple has had this design for more than seven years and have been using it at existing campuses, too. In fact, one of these pizza boxes was placed after Jobs' death and was signed by many of the Apple Food employees.
Travis Scott Takeover
Only a couple of days ago, Travis Scott dropped 3 songs at the same time. The first song, in collaboration with Playboy Carti, is called "Purple&Green." The second, called "Butterfly Effect," and the third called, "A Man." All of these songs deserve a listen to, however you can't expect more or less from these compared to Travis' other songs. In this recent drop, Travis doesn't go out of his comfort zone or change his music style at all. This should be something expected by Travis and can be classified as one of those "Travis Scott" songs, with the auto-tuned rapping, singing and chanting. Travis also featured in a song with SZA, called, "Love Galore," which dropped on April 28. Although we love Travis the way he is, with his songs and rap revolving around cocaine, molly and sex, Travis really steps out of his zone and steps into a slower-paced song with SZA and we can all say that it was a definite advancement and improvement in his music career. We can definitely look forward to a Scott-ruled Summer and be sure to check all of these songs out! They're worth a listen and deserves to be on your playlist!
"Purple&Green" a 9/10
"Butterfly Effect" a 9/10
"A Man" a 7/10
"Love Galore" a 10/10
Sigrid - Don't Kill My Vibe
Sigrid, a norwegian singer, released an EP recently titled "Don't Kill My Vibe". This popstar has just recently become a world-wide sensation. The small artist introduced an EP on May 5th and promoting it over multiple sites and social media outlets and people started to realize that the songs were quite catchy. The first song is the title song and is incredible and a nice break from the "pop" music we hear today. It's very bubbly and can easily be classified as a dance song. Following "Don't Kill My Vibe" is a song titled "Plot Twist". This song features simple lyrics, but for a listener not accustomed to a Norwegian accent it's a miraculous twist to the normal sounds of the words. Following this song we have another song closesly related to the first in terms of bubbly-ness and dance rhythm. The central focus point of the songs seem to be about boys, but other than the second song on the EP it is uncertain. The last song on the EP is an unplugged tune, which is played in an acoustic form with A Capella vocals.
Overall I give this EP a 7 / 10.

Barcelona lost their Spanish league title to rivals Real Madrid despite beating Eibar with a remarkable second-halfturnaround.
Perhaps hearing that Madrid had taken the lead early, Barca did not get play properly in the opening period and were behind after seven minutes, thanks to Takeshi Inui's thumping finish. They did, though, still manage to construct some excellent scoring opportunities, the best of which was put wide by Luis Suarez, though Ruben Pena missed an even better chance on the stroke of half-time; the feeling was always that Barca would need more than two goals. And so it proved. Another belter from Inui doubled Eibar's advantage, but shortly afterwards an own-goal from David Junca ushered Barca back into the game. As the pressure mounted, the referee awarded a penalty for a non-existent foul on Jordi Alba - Yoel Rodriguez saved brilliantly from Lionel Messi - but then Suarez pulled one back on 74 minutes, Messi scored a penalty on 76, and with Ander Capa shown a second yellow card for his involvement, that was that - save Messi's obligatory wonder goal just before time. MAN OF THE MATCH. Yoel Rodriguez (Eibar): Made a string of outstanding saves, including one from a penalty, and generally did everything he could possibly have done to help his team.
Mumbai Indians to win Indian Premier League title Magnificent death bowling saw Mumbai Indians snatch an incredible one-run victory from the jaws of defeat against Rising Pune Supergiant in a thrilling grand finale of the Indian Premier League. Supergiant lost three wickets in the last over — bowled by Mitchell Johnson — to be restricted to 128-6 after Mumbai Indians scored 129-8. This is also the first time since 2008 that a team finishing first in the Points Table has lifted the trophy. In one of the closest finals during the 10 editions, the trio of Jasprit Bumrah (2/26 in 4 overs), Mitchell Johnson (3/26 in 4 overs) and Lasith Malinga (0/21 in 4 overs) were brilliant at the death defending a lowly total of 129/8 as Supergiant were restricted to 128 for 6 at the end. Summing up, Mumbai Indians had the last laugh once again for 3rd time in IPL History.
Basquiat painting sells for record-breaking $110.5 Million
On May 18th, Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa purchases an untitled Jean-Michel Basquiat painting for a whopping $110,500,000 at Sotheby's Postwar and Contemporary Evening Sale. The painting was an azure-and-black untitled skull painting from 1982 (pictured above next to Maezawa) and made Basquiat the most expensive American artist ever sold at an auction. Basquiat is now the second most expensive contemporary work ever auctioned, topped by Francis Bacon's Three Studies of Lucien Freud (1969) sold for $142,400,000 in November 2013 and the previous record being Andy Warhol’s Silver Car Crash (1963) that sold for $105,000,000 at the same location, also in 2013. Congratulations to Maezawa and Basquiat!
Columbia University introduces "Uptown" triennial
Columbia University, home to the Wallach Art Gallery in New York, is introducing a new triennial of contemporary art they are calling "Uptown." It runs from June 2 to August 20, and will present the work of artists who work, live, and maintain studios north of New York's 99th street. The arts event, which is organized and maintained by Wallach Art Gallery's head curator, Deborah Cullen, is the art gallery's first major event ever since it moved to its new location in Columbia's Lenfest Center of Arts, which is a part of Columbia University's Manhattanville campus. The art gallery will also be collaborating with other major institutions, such as the Harlem School of Arts, Arts Horizon LeRoy Neiman Art Center, and Windows on Amsterdam Community Art Gallery. In the act of organizing the exhibition, Deborah Cullen wanted to make sure she included artists from diverse artistical backgrounds, from major participants, to emerging artists. She aims to have the exhibition cement interactions between the campus, the general community, and to pique the interest of those that aren't familiar with professional art work.
CSGO Hacks and Cheats
This week, @sagaantheepic4 brought us a fantastic external cheat for CSGO, and added a feature I've personally never seen before. "DoomWare" brings us all of the things you would expect a quality CSGO cheat to have, which includes aimbot, triggerbot, ragebot, legitbot, glowESP, FOV changer, an in-game radar, bunnyhopping, smooth aim and more that are unlisted. One specific factor of the cheat that makes it stand out for me was the "No Hands" feature that he's added, which is included in the screenshot above. It really sets out this hack from many of the others. This has guaranteed many hours of fun with only a download and a push of a button. Remember to always use protection (Enigma), and stay safe when hacking! Happy hacking! thread

Hot Barber Styles Clients’ Hair With Great Balls Of Fire
When most people think of haircuts they never think about getting their hair torched by a guy and having to worry about getting their head roasted alive by a "barber but that is exactly what this guy in Egypt has done to fire start his career. Mohamed Hanafy said that he got the inspiration to "cut" people's hair in this unique way by watching a Pakistan guy cutting people's hair in a similar fashion on YouTube. Hanafy said that when he uses the blow torch to get people's hair to straighten up and doing it this way will make it so that the hair stays straight much longer then any products. He had a difficult time getting people to trust him since this is fire and even a slight miss hap can cause this method to go wrong very fast. Would you try this method out if you were given a chance to do it?
