How to choose black caviar

black caviar

Black caviar is an expensive pleasure; as a rule, people buy it for a holiday. It is important not to purchase a product of dubious origin, even if it costs significantly less. The downside of the cheapness is that if you are not lucky, the caviar can be the most dangerous product on the holiday table.

Caviar is a farm product today and the best quality caviar is produced in those farms with good ecology and clean water.

Caviar is a delicacy consisting of low salt-cured, unfertilized fish roe of the Acipenseridae family, better known as the sturgeon fish. Caviar is considered a delicacy and is eaten as a garnish or a spread. Traditionally, the term caviar refers only to roe from wild sturgeon in the Caspian Sea and Black Sea.

When choosing caviar, the consumer should pay attention to where the fish farm is located, what it is, what technologies it uses and the image of the farm itself. All this information is usually available on the Internet.

So before buying a jar of an expensive delicacy for the holiday, take a few minutes and study the history of the manufacturing company.

How criminals steal data from your SIM card


If a SIM card is lost, cybercriminals can gain access to all the information stored on it and carry out illegal actions on your behalf, including theft of funds. 

The attacker calls the operator and, introducing himself as the owner, declares that the SIM card has been lost and answers security questions. He finds answers to the questions on the user’s social networks. After that, the real SIM card is disconnected, the stranger gets a new one with full access to the number and all of the information that comes to him. Therefore, it is very important to observe digital hygiene and not to expose personal data on social networks for everyone to see

It is also possible to steal data from a SIM card using remote access: an SMS message with a technical code is sent to the user’s device, and after opening the hacker gets access to calls, messages and even the owner’s location.

5 reasons to watch Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors


After the runaway success of Criminal Justice last year, Hotstar Specials is all set to entertain audiences with its next chapter in the franchise titled Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors. Pankaj Tripathi is returning to portray the role of lawyer Madhav Mishra, who is fighting the toughest case of his career along with Nikhat Hussain, once again being portrayed by Anupriya Goenka. The duo is defending the prime accused Anu Chandra, portrayed by Kirti Kulhari, who has confessed to stabbing her husband, an eminent lawyer – Bikram Chandra and is guilty in the eyes of law. While many believe it to be an open-and-shut case, Anu’s subsequent silence and unwillingness to defend herself begs the question – is there more to the case than what meets the eye?

Watch the drama unveil in the highly-anticipated 8-part courtroom drama, launching on 24th December 2020 in 7 languages on Disney+ Hotstar VIP; here are five of the many reasons that make Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors a must watch.

1.  Mishraji is back!
One of the most loved actors Pankaj Tripathi is returning to portray a character that has made an impression on audiences – that of lawyer Madhav Mishra. This time around, the challenge at hand for Madhav Mishra is the toughest as his client is refusing to speak and because he is going against a formidable team that is defending an eminent lawyer. But Mishra ji is quite a makshifter, let’s see how he solves an open and shut case this time!

2.  Featuring strong and bold women
Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors is a stand-out courtroom drama as it focuses and centres around women, all with different personalities and different ways of dealing with their life and problems. The murder accused is a houswife, who has confessed to stabbing her husband and is guilty in the eyes of the law. Her defense team is joined by a lawyer Nikhat Hussain whose instinct as a woman tells her that there is more to Anu Chandra’s story, and that she is determined to find out about it.

3. An eye-opening narrative
Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors is a riveting story that will keep audiences engrossed till the very end. More so, the courtroom drama will raise questions on less-spoken societal issues, it will make its viewers more informed, and will also initiate conversations around whether the law is equipped to serve both men and women, equally. In fact, the makers even consulted a team of lawyers to ensure that they got the nuances and legal terminologies right, and did in-depth return to ensure that they told the story insightfully and sensitively.

4. Showcases life and ordeal of women in prison
Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors is one of the few stories in India to showcase the life and ordeal of women in prison. With only a limited number of resources available for reference, the makers had a challenging time recreating a women’s prison. However, the actors along with directors Rohan Sippy and Arjun Mukerjee have lauded the design team’s work on building a set that looks exactly like a real jail, with actor Shilpa Shukla even saying that it helped her get into the skin of her character Ishani Nath.

5. Ensemble cast with fine creators at the helm
An outstanding cast and crew team have brought this exceptional story to life, insightfully and sensitively. Along with Pankaj Tripathi, Kirti Kulhari and Anupriya Goenka, the cast in the show also includes powerhouse talents Ashish Vidyarthi, Deepti Naval, Jisshu Sengupta, Shilpa Shukla, Pankaj Saraswat, Ayaz Khan, Kalyanee Mulay, Ajeet Singh Palawat, Khushboo Atre, Tirrtha Murbadkar, and others.

Eye makeup in 2020


The pandemic has shifted makeup preferences in India. Since lips are hidden behind face masks, lipstick sales have seen a drop. However, eye makeup changed for the better.

Somewhat unsurprisingly all the major beauty trends for 2020 have largely been around eye makeup. Courtesy Yahoo Makeup trends in 2020, let’s see what rocked our world in a year of WFH, pandemic, and Zoom calls:

Multi-coloured eyes

Eye makeup - Multi-coloured eyes

A good way to experiment with colours is by using multiple contrasting hues on your eyes. Consider layering a bit of eyeshadow primer before you try out this look so the shades stay put.

Colourful Lower-Liner

Colourful Lower-Liner

Don’t just let your top eye lash be the centre of attention all the time. All you need is to add the same colour or a lighter shade on your lower eyelashes than the one you’ve used on top.

Neon Eye Makeup

2020 has also been a year of minimalism. So all over neon has made way for just a dash of neon shade on the corner of your eyes.

Floating Eyeliner

Floating Eyeliner

Yet another minimal trend that doesn’t require your eyeliner to stick to your lash line. Little effort and no hassle. Cool girl vibes are just an added bonus.

Pastel Eyeliner

Neon of 2019 made way for pastel shades in 2020. The light pink colour, for instance, was all over our Insta feed this year. If subtlety is your thing, this is your year!

Poonam Karekar Govekar wants Goans to send Garbage to Karan Johar

Goan actress, model and theatre artiste Poonam Karekar Govekar says that she was shocked – at the least, seeing videos and images of how Bollywood producer and presenter Karan Johar’s company Dharma Productions had littered the picturesque beach village of Nerul – a biodiversity hotspot, with tons of biomedical waste, used PPE kits, face protectors, sanitary napkins, plastic plates and spoons, bandages and other garbage and did not bother to clear it up for days, even after local residents raised a stink. Karekar recently shot for a film in Goa inspired by the life of former Goa CM and ex defence Minister the late Manohar Parrikar.

Speaking to this journalist, Poonam Karekar Govekar said Goans should courier parcels of garbage from their homes to Karan Johar’s residence and his office. This is a crying shame. I am surprised that the national media in India has not bothered to cover this. Would Karan Johar’s production do this in any city? Would he dump such huge amounts of garbage and hazardous bio-medical waste by the roadside in Paris, Venice, London or Dubai or even in Mumbai? In the UAE, he would have been given a 1000 lashes in a public square. This is ridiculous, that even the Goa government has not made a statement. Such huge amounts of waste cannot be cleaned up by 2-3 Panchayat workers who do not have trucks or machinery to do it. You need a specialist agency to clear up the left-over mess after a film shoot wraps up. The location where the waste (including biomedical waste) has been dumped is a biodiversity hotspot and hundreds of rare species of birds and other creatures are found in the surrounding area.

Meanwhile, Lokhancho Ekvott Goa,  – a social movement to save the villages and heritage of Goa, has demanded a written apology from Karan Johar and his company Dharma Productions for littering the roads in the picturesque Goan beach village of Nerul about 10 km from the capital city of Panaji.

The Lokhancho Ekvott spokesperson Flynn Remedios said they would move the Bombay High Court bench at Goa next week, against Dharma Productions for breaking the laws of the land and not even attempting to make amends, days after locals raised a hue and cry about the stinking and rotting garbage and other unsegregated waste, dumped by the production house.

The demand came even as the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) – a Goa government agency took cognizance of the wrongdoing and issued a notice to the local line producer Dilip Borkar of the Mumbai-based film production company Dharma Productions, owned by Karan Johar, following reports that a lot of waste generated by the film crew, including personal protective equipment (PPE), was not cleared from the picturesque village of Nerul after shooting was completed earlier this month. (the line producer is the one-person local contact at the location/shoot venue for all local permissions like Panchayat/Municipality, Fire, Police, etc. and liaisons with the local authorities as well as local vendors providing transport, food, water etc. )
