STAN LEE DEAD AT 95

Image result for stan lee dead
Stan Lee, the Marvel Comics legend who co-created some of its most famous heroes like Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four, died Monday in Los Angeles at the age of 95. Lee was reportedly rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he later died, according to 3m360. The cause of death has not been immediately released.
Lee’s legacy is defined by his numerous popular comic book character creations for Marvel Comics, where he began working in 1939 at age 18 when the company was called Timely Comics. The company changed its name to Marvel Comics in 1961 when Lee and artist Jack Kirby co-created the Fantastic Four and saw it go on to become a hit.
Lee’s birth name was “Stanley Martin Lieber,” but used “Stan Lee” as his pen name and then later had it legally changed.
With the success of Marvel’s First Family came more Lee/Kirby creations throughout the 1960s, including Hulk, Thor, Iron Man and the X-Men. Lee co-created Daredevil with Bill Everett, and Doctor Strange and Spider-Man with Steve Ditko. The characters all lived in a shared universe that mirrors our own, with most heroes residing in Lee’s home of New York City. The common factor that proved to be Lee’s key to success was giving superheroes relatable flaws as opposed to making them perfect, infallible beings.

Five Key Benefits of Probiotics For Men

Related image

In order to live the healthiest life possible, it’s vital to listen to advice and do your best to eat a healthy, balanced diet, and incorporate plenty of exercise into your week. Of course, you also need to banish smoking, and do your best to keep alcohol to a minimum, but have you heard about taking a men’s probiotic supplement too?

Probiotics have been in the health news for the last few years at the very least, and show no signs of disappearing. Probiotics are healthy bacteria, ensuring that the bad stuff is balanced up sufficiently, avoiding illness and conditions from developing. Whilst there is ongoing research into just how effective probiotics are, they have been shown to have a plethora of fantastic health benefits, as well as ensuring your gut functions to the best of its ability.

Look at it this way – a healthy gut is a healthy and happy you. There is no joy to be had when your stomach feels bloated and you feel like you’ve swallowed a brick every time you eat something. With the busy and stressful lives most of us lead, there has been a distinct increase in the number of people suffering with stomach-related complaints, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diverticular disease, inflammatory bowel disease, as well as general bloating and discomfort after food. Probiotics can help all of that, either by taking a supplement, or by increasing the amount of natural probiotic in your diet.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald…

        
Production of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald started this summer and we already know quite a lot about the second Fantastic Beasts film. So, if you want to go into the film not knowing much, we suggest you look away now…
It’s called Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Straight away the title says that Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) will be a big focus in the second film, after having been unmasked in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Clearly his capture by MACUSA won’t last for very long, and Grindelwald is still intent on exposing the wizarding community to the non-magical world.
So, what will he do next? As the title suggests, not nice things. Grindelwald escapes custody and sets about gathering followers to his cause. What many of his new devotees don’t suspect is that his true intention is to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
We know from the Harry Potter books that Grindelwald’s ascent represented a dark time for the wizarding world – much like the rise of Lord Voldemort. So, things are about to get serious.
Jude Law makes his debut as Albus Dumbledore
After being name-checked in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the future headmaster of Hogwarts makes his debut in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.       
Today we got our first look at Jude Law in costume as Albus Dumbledore, complete with a short beard, long, grey corduroy coat and some very nicely embellished shoes. To echo the words of Kingsley Shacklebolt – you’ve got to hand it to Dumbledore: he’s got style.
Dumbledore will ask his former student Newt for his help, and the two do seem to have a history: Dumbledore argued against Newt’s expulsion from Hogwarts years earlier. And in the latest edition of the textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a new foreword from Newt says that Dumbledore was ‘more than a school teacher to me’.

Why people stay in unhappy relationships

Image result for Why people stay in unhappy relationships
People continue to stay in unsatisfying romantic relationships because they believe that leaving would be bad for their partners, a study suggests. Published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the study explored the possibility that people deciding whether to end a relationship consider not only their own desires but also how much they think their partner wants and needs the relationship to continue.
"The more dependent people believed their partner was on the relationship, the less likely they were to initiate a breakup," said Samantha Joel, who was an assistant professor at the University of Utah in the US at the time of the research.

Hunter Killer #New Movie Alert @genesiscinemas

 
Actor Gerard Butler says submarine thriller Hunter Killer tells a classic story, but it is very relevant. "When I first read this script a few years ago, I loved it immediately. It's a classic story with a heck of a lot of great action, a heck of an intricate plot and a whole cast of fantastic characters who are heroes from different walks of life," Butler said in a statement to IANS. "It felt like an exciting way to revive the submarine thriller for these times. And right now, this story couldn't feel more relevant," he added.                         
The film is adapted from Don Keith and George Wallace's 2012 novel Firing Point. Butler plays a submarine captain on a mission to rescue the Russian president and avoid World War 3 by firing torpedoes at everything in sight. Directed by Donovan Marsh, it also stars Gary Oldman and Linda Cardellini. PVR Pictures and MVP Entertainment are bringing the film to India. It will release on October 26.
