Instagram Rolling Out ‘Your Activity’ Feature That Lets You Track How Much Time You Spend on It


Instagram Rolling Out 'Your Activity' Feature That Lets You Track How Much Time You Spend on It

The Activity feature on Instagram is aimed to offer well-being of the users

Instagram is now rolling out its own Your Activity feature that would track how much time users spend on the app.

The feature, which lies inside the “hamburger” icon on the upper right corner of your profile page, includes tools for setting daily time limits and the option to temporarily mute push notifications, The Verge reported on Wednesday.

The feature was announced in August aiming to give users more control over how they interact with social media that may be harmful to the mental health and well-being of the users if used excessively.

Facebook is expected to follow Instagram and add the feature to its activity dashboard, which is to be called “Your time on Facebook”.

A similar feature called Screen Time has been introduced by Apple on its iOS, and with Google also releasing a Digital Wellbeing dashboard with Android 9.0, tech companies are thinking about helping users better manage their time using apps, the report added.

The feature is expected to be available for all Instagram users soon.

In the meanwhile, Instagram was recently spotted testing Hindi support. The new development could help the Facebook-owned company expand its presence in India, which is already the biggest market for the social networking giant that has over 241 million monthly active Indian users.

The Hindi-focused treatment is not just limited to the core Instagram experience but is also on offerings such as IGTV that debuted recently to enable vertical video sharing. However, it is apparently limited for Android devices at the initial stage.

Fortnite 6.3 Patch Notes Reveal Addition of Food Fight Limited Time Mode and More


Fortnite for Android, iOS, PS4, Xbox One, and PC gets a new update that brings a new limited time mode called Food Fight. The Fortnite update 6.30 patch notes suggest that the Food Fight limited time mode has some elements in common with Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch, what with Epic Games asking fans to choose between burgers or pizza on social media. In Fortnite Food Fight, two teams are on either side of the map. There’s a huge barrier down the middle. The objective is to build a fort to protect your restaurant mascot. When the barrier lowers, you’re tasked with destroying the enemy’s mascot to win. The Fortnite 6.30 update download size is around 152MB on iOS.

Fortnite update 6.30 Food Fight LTM patch notes

  • An impassable barrier will be spawned along the center of the map for the first several minutes.
  • Each team will have an under-construction restaurant near the center of the map. Inside is a giant mascot head representing that team.
  • If the mascot head is destroyed, that team loses the match.
  • Teams should use the time that the barrier is up to construct a defensive fortress around their restaurant.
  • As soon as the barrier lowers… fight to take out the enemy mascot before they destroy yours!
  • Special red supply drops spawn at the start of the match. These hold a handful of weapons, ammo, consumables, traps and a few hundred metal building materials.
  • Players will respawn after 7 seconds when eliminated, keeping their inventory.
  • Eliminated players spawn a percentage of their ammo upon elimination, as well as 30/30/60 wood/stone/metal materials.
  • 100 percent extra resources are gained from gathering.
  • Building resources found on the ground increased from 20 to 50 per instance.
  • No explosive weapons or items are in this mode.

Other additions include UI fixes to account for the Pixel 3 XL notch, improved UI in Fortnite Mobile, and better memory management on Fortnite Nintendo Switch.

Previously it was announced that Fortnite for Xbox One will get keyboard and mouse support soon. At X018, Microsoft stated that the feature would be available for the popular battle royale shooter from November 14. And if you were worried about keyboard and mouse Fortnite players having an advantage, Epic Games will match keyboard and mouse Fortnite players with those using the same input method to keep matches fair. Other games to offer keyboard and mouse support include DayZ, Warframe, War Thunder, Vermintide 2, Moonlighter, and Warface to name a few.

Keyboard and mouse support won’t be enabled by default for Xbox One games and will instead be “added on a title-by-title basis, entirely at developers’ discretion”, Microsoft noted when it announced the feature back in September. It further added: “Each development team knows their titles best and we support them in creating the right experience for their games as they see fit, to ensure an optimal and fair gaming experience.”

Chhath Puja Sunset And Sunrise Time, Significance, Fasting Rules To Follow


People across India, especially up in North are celebrating Chhath Puja or Chhath Parva today. The festival is one of the most significant festivals for people of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. It also happens to be one of the most ancient festivals of the country. The festival is dedicated to the Sun God. In Hindu belief, cosmic bodies like Sun and Moon are held with much reverence. Sun is seen as the God of energy that helps sustain life on earth. On Chhath Puja, people offer their gratitude towards the Surya Shakti or Dala Chhath and Chhath Maiya and seek blessings for themselves and their entire family. Chhath is celebrated on the sixth day in the month of Kartik of the Hindu lunar calendar. The festival will be celebrated over four days, and the main Chhath Puja will be observed on 13th November, which is known as Surya Shashthi. There are many rituals that are followed in the festival, two of the most prominent being standing and offering prayers in holy rivers or water bodies, facing the sun for longer periods and also offering prasad to the Sun at sunrise and sunset. If you are celebrating Chhath this year, here are the sunrise and sunset times from 11th November 2018 to 14th November 2018.

Chhath Puja Significance | Chhath Fasting Rules

Along with the Sun God, people also make offerings to Chhath Maiya, commonly known as Usha, the younger sister of the Sun God. According to legends, Draupadi and Pandavas performed the Chhath Puja as advised by noble sage Dhaumya and reclaimed their kingdom after their unceremonious exile. Many people observe the ritualistic Chhath fast, where in they consume only one whole vegetarian meal in the day. All the four days of the festival have unique set of rituals.

Here are some Chhath fasting do’s and don’ts you must keep in mind if you are observing one these days.

1. It is a common ritual to take bath in the Holy Ganges in the morning. People carry the holy water of Ganga and sprinkle it on their food preparations for the day. They consume just one meal and observe a fast through the day.
2. On the second day of Chhath Puja, which is just a day prior to main Surya Shashti, people also fast for the whole day and break their fast after the sunset. They do not consume a single drop of water or a morsel of food except the one sattvik and vegetarian meal. For breaking the fast, devotees pray to Sun and the Moon, and offer kheer, chapattis, and bananas to their family and friends as prasad. Chhath puja songs are sung with devotion.
3. On the main day of Chhath, which falls on 13th November, 2018, people go to the river bank during sunrise and then again during sunset and make various food offerings such as thekua, kheer, malpua and the likes. They also gather and sing folk songs and recite folk tales.
4. On the last day of the Chhath Puja, devotees visit the river bank before the Sun rises and make offerings to the Sun. Devotees break their 36-hour long fast and then feast on the prasad along with their loved ones.
5. The food prepared during these four days is pure vegetarian and is cooked without the use of onion, garlic and table salt.

Happy Chhath Puja 2018 everybody!

Angry Maharashtra Farmers Plan Another Big Protest March In November, This Time In Delhi


Mumbai: 

Eight months after farmers from all over Maharashtra marched from Nashik to Mumbai, the All India Kisan Sabha, on Monday announced a similar march in November, but this time it will be in Delhi. 

“We have announced a farmers’ march on November 29 and 30 in Delhi as the assurances given by the government are not yet fulfilled,” Dr Ashok Dhawale, President of All India Kisan Sabha (AIKS) told NDTV.

Hanumant Dharmagavale, a farmer, who had walked 200 kilometre from Nashik to Mumbai to voice his troubles said that nothing has been done yet. Almost a year is over and 90 per cent of his 5-acre paddy field is destroyed because of drought but he is yet to receive any help from the government.

“We are not getting the Minimum Support Price or MSP for our crops. The MSP promised is only on paper; it hasn’t been implemented yet,” he said Dharmagavale. 

Sumanrao Bigte, a widow from Hingoli district of Vidarbha, earns only Rs 100 per day, after working for 12 hours in the field and that too is dependent on availability of work. “I don’t get money on time as there is no work. I have to pay utility bills, children’s education and costs are spiraling,” she told NDTV. 

Drought-hit farmers in central Maharashtra say as there is no work in their hometown, migration may be the only option to earn their livelihood.

The AIKS wants its 12-point agenda implemented including declaring droughts in Maharashtra, MSP as promised, loan waiver without conditions and forest rights for tribals. 

On the road to 2019 parliamentary elections, political parties have their eyes trained on this farmers’ movement. Many opposition leaders were present at the convention, lending their support.

NCP supremo, Sharad Pawar has reached out to opposition parties to come together on the farmers’ issue. Mr Pawar has already hit out at the BJP-led government, claiming that the focus is not farmers but the Ram Temple. Former Maharashtra chief minister and state Congress chief Ashok Chavan has also made similar claims.

Shanghai: 

China has shown the missiles in its advanced J-20 stealth fighter jet to the public for the first time at its largest airshow, the Global Times newspaper reported on Monday.

The newspaper said two J-20 fighter jets opened their missile bay doors during a flypast on Monday, revealing that each jet had four missiles in its fuselage and one on either side of the aircraft.

Citing Chinese experts, the newspaper said the demonstration, which came on the 69th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) Air Force, displayed the J-20’s superiority to the top U.S. fighter jets, the F-22 and F-35, as well as the PLA’s growing confidence.

It also quoted military expert Song Zhongping as saying the four missiles in the J-20’s fuselage were long-range air-to-air missiles, while the two on the sides were short-range combat missiles meant for aerial combat.
