#CBSE Class 12 Board results will not be declared today

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will not declare the Class 12 Board exam results today, sources from the Board have said.

A Delhi High Court order yesterday, on May 23, directed the CBSE to restore the moderation policy – which allows the provision of extra marks to students for difficult questions – for the time being.

A high-level meeting called by human resource development (HRD) minister Prakash Javadekar today assumes significance as it is likely to deliberate on the High Court ruling. It is expected to be attended by CBSE chairman Rakesh Kumar Chaturvedi and Department of School Education and Literacy secretary Anil Swarup, among others.

CBSE sources have said that the results will not be declared today, on May 24, but will not be delayed indefinitely. “The results are not likely to be delayed. Even if we have to apply the moderation policy, it will not cause a lot of delay because everything is done scientifically,” they said.

The High Court order has not been received as yet by CBSE officials. They will be able to understand more about the application of the moderation policy only after studying it, the sources said.

Sparks on train at Delhi’s Rajiv Chowk metro station, passengers evacuated

A Delhi Metro train was evacuated at Rajiv Chowk station after sparks were seen on its roof on Wednesday morning. An official of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said that initial reports came in at 10.22 am that smoke and sparks were noticed on a train at Central Secretariat.

The train was asked to report at Rajiv Chowk station where all the passengers were asked to deboard. Commuters took to Twitter soon after and some said they heard two explosions in the train. However, such reports remain unconfirmed till now. According to DMRC, the train has been taken to a depot for inspection.

Service was disrupted on the Yellow Line for some time after the incident though normal train operations resumed by 11 am. Rajiv Chowk is one of the busiest interchange stations in the Delhi Metro network.

Baahubali 2 box-office collection day 25: Dangal to beat SS Rajamoulis epic at the box office

Baahubali 2 box-office collection day 25: Dangal to beat SS Rajamoulis epic at the box office


Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal is expected to cross the lifetime global box-office collection of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion by as early as Tuesday.
Unbelievable. Every day, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion and Dangal, starring Aamir Khan, are breaking box-office records. And now, unbelievably, according to latest reports, Dangal might just beat Baahubali 2 at the global box-office!

Dangal got a new lease of life when it got released in China eighteen days ago. Within the first 17 days, Dangal earned a mammoth $ 112 million (Rs 721 crore) from just Chinese theatres. This has catapulted the global box-office collection of Dangal to Rs 1,501.64 crore ($ 225.7 million) according to trade analyst Ramesh Bala.


Meanwhile, Baahubali 2, was released in four languages; Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam, worldwide on June 28. In the first 23 days since its release, the film has earned Rs 1,538 crore.


At the most, the SS Rajamouli epic is expected to hit the Rs 1600-crore mark at the box office. However, considering the pace at which Dangal is making money, the Aamir Khan-starrer will beat Baahubali 2 at the box office any day now.

On Sunday, Dangal reportedly sold almost 2 million tickets in China. At the current pace, Dangal’s box-office collection will cross Baahubali 2’s before Tuesday itself. However, it must be noted that Baahubali 2 is yet to release in China.

Meanwhile, back in India, Half Girlfriend, based on the Chetan Bhagat book of the same name and directed by Mohit Suri earned an estimated Rs 32.05 crore in the first three days. Despite overwhelmingly negative reviews, the romantic comedy is expected to earn no less than Rs 50 crore (nett) from Indian theatres.

We’ve Found The Best Of The Best Mattresses For Couples

We’ve Found The Best Of The Best Mattresses For Couples


What Is The Ultimate Mattress For Couples? We Take A Closer Look
If you’ve been in a relationship for a hot second, you don’t need us to tell you that part of the road to happily ever after is learning how to accept, embrace and be content with compromise. No matter how many television shows you both equally love, how many concerts you eagerly book to see together or how well you get along on car rides, two different souls means two different opinions on nearly everything. And though you might fondly remember the days when you passed out alone across your bed with one foot hanging off the edge of the mattress, nowadays your sleeping area has to be fit for two.

That’s why picking out a mattress that satisfies both partners is a smart way to keep your relationship (and your overall health) in good shape. While you spend a lot of time at work (and ahem, plenty on your iPhone), you also spend a big chunk of your life sleeping. “By your 20th anniversary, you’ve spent six years together in bed. So, while you can compromise on a date-night movie, you shouldn’t compromise on the comfort of the mattress that you spend one third of your life on,” says Pete Bils, the vice president of sleep science and research at Sleep Number. “No matter how compatible you and your partner are, no two people are alike. A mattress that meets both partners’ comfort needs will enhance each person’s sleep quality at night and personal performance during the day.”

What To Look Out For
All couples are built differently. While you and your gal might be drastically different heights and weights, your best bro and his girl might struggle because they have completely different schedules. And hey, sometimes you just want a firmer type of lay and she’s more into pillow-soft.

Apart from differing preferences, you want a mattress where motion transfer is minimal. You don’t want to be woken up every time your partner rolls over to check their smartphone. Also, a mattress that starts sagging over time is going to spell disaster down the line for any couple. Not only will you end up sleeping on top of each other in the center, you might start developing back or neck pains as well.

And hey, if it’s time for some intimate business (wink), you want just the right bounce and firmness to have the best time possible.

Regardless of your preferences — and no matter how opposite they might be — here are the best mattresses for couples:

Leesa Mattress

Best for: The average couple
Why We Love It

The Leesa mattress is a medium-firm foam mattress that you can purchase with the click of a button from the comfort of your own home. It was designed with a universal feel and firmness in mind, making it perfect for couples who are neither looking for a soft-as-a-pillow or hard-as-a-featherbed experience. The motion transfer is minimal, ensuring that your partner won’t be woken up when you roll over to check your phone for the millionth time. And it has some great response and bounce for when things heat up.

Why Others Love It

"The Leesa’s overall sinkage is moderate. Additionally, the Avena and memory foams do a good job of minimizing motion transfer, which makes it ideal for couples," concluded the mattress review site Sleepopolis.

Kingsdown Passions Imagination Mattress

Best For: Couples with kids
Why We Love It

Though you’ll want to take all of the above factors into consideration when thinking of the brand and type of mattress you buy, what’s actually important when you have a family is how large your bed is. This mattress will comfortably accommodate kids crawling into bed and furry companions sleeping by your feet at night. “When thinking of a mattress to accommodate two people and their kids for the occasional cuddles, the most important factor to consider is size. Our recommendation is to take your mattress preferences and needs into account, and opt for a king-sized bed if room permits. Mattress protectors are great accessories to use on beds with children, as they reduce allergens and protect against dust, accidents or spills,” says Sujay Kansagra, MD, director of Duke University’s sleep medicine program and sleep health consultant at Mattress Firm.

Why Others Love It

"We’ve been sleeping on this bed for a few weeks now, and its fantastic. I am pregnant, so sleeping is not the easiest thing for me anymore," wrote Amazon reviewer Sarah F.

Muse Mattresses

Best For: Retired couples
Why We Love It

The older you get, the more difficult it is to regulate your body heat. But luckily for you, the right mattress can step in and help out. “Temperature control is another feature to consider for retired couples (think hot flashes). Our gel-infused memory foam mattress with a cooling cover conforms to your body, regulates your body temperature and provides therapeutic support to prevent aches and pains. What’s more, with a click of a button you can order a Muse mattress online and it’ll be delivered to your doorstep in a convenient box within five to seven business days. You can even opt for white-glove service, which includes the set up of your new mattress and the removal and disposal of your old mattress,” says Gabriel Dungan, co-founder, president and CEO of Muse.

Why Others Love It

“Have to confess, my husband and I are new to the whole ‘Bed In A Box’ mattress (we had to get our oldest son to explain exactly how it worked LOL). Anyway, we heard from friends who just got a Muse Full mattress for their daughter and said they were so glad they did — their girl loved it, especially how cool she said it was to sleep on. As we live in an older house that can get really hot at times, that was enough for us to go online and check it out, as it was about time for us to get a new mattress for our youngest," wrote an Amazon customer.

Serta iComfort Smart Support

Best for: A restless partner
Why We Love It

Each coil is pocketed individually, which prevents the whole mattress from moving when one person tosses and turns. "Any mattress featuring an individual pocketed coil will provide motion separation, allowing for both partners to achieve a quality night of sleep," says Kansagra.

Why Others Love It

“This bed is as good as it was the first night. I’ve had it for over a year and a half," wrote Good Bed reviewer Diane S.

Sleep Number i10 Mattress

Best For: Two different levels of firmness
Why We Love It

Fun (or um, not so fun) fact: It’s estimated that 90 percent of couples can’t agree on how soft or firm their bed is. That can be a big issue when you’re both trying to get enough sleep to work, take care of children, and ya know, exist as a functioning human. This mattress offers the best compromise. “All Sleep Number beds offer each partner the individualized comfort both need with dual adjustability. Each partner can choose their ideal Sleep Number setting — a number between 0-100, in increments of five — to reach their ideal level of comfort. While one partner’s Sleep Number setting may be a soft 35, their partner’s Sleep Number setting could be a much firmer 75 — no problem. The mattress adjusts on both sides, so it’s perfect for couples who disagree on mattress firmness," says Bils.

Why Others Love It

“Even though it’s more expensive than most, if we would have purchased this bed 10 years ago, we would have saved a lot of money, and been sleeping a lot better and more comfortably," wrote Sleep Number reviewer RetiredDan.

Beautyrest’s Black Ava Plush Mattress

Best For: Couples of different weights

Why We Love It

Opposites attract, sure, but that doesn’t always make for a harmonious sleeping arrangement. When you’re on two very different ends of the scale, you might notice dips and hills in your mattress if you don’t get the right one. That won’t happen with this product. “The Alcove Plush mattress from Beautyrest’s Black Hybrid line features a braided coil, which is stronger and more durable than competitors in the mattress world. This mattress is one of the most popular Black Hybrid models and provides a medium feel, perfect for supporting different body types," says Kansagra.

Why Others Love It

"The plush top has enough cushion, yet I don’t sink in due to the underlying support. We have rotated the mattress and have no issues at this time with any ‘trenches’ where we lay. My husband and I are not overweight (he weighs 190 pounds and is 6’2") and this has been a very good king-sized mattress for us!" wrote a Consumer Reports user.

Beautyrest’s Legend Preston Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress

Best For: Couples with different schedules
Why We Love It

You might need to greet the market way early in the A.M. while her job as an engineer means she stays up late to crack code. When your schedules aren’t as compatible as you’d like them to be, you need a mattress that doesn’t move too much, allowing for you to still sleep together — even if it’s at random times. “Equipped with contour support micro coil to provide enhanced conforming ability and pressure relief, Beautyrest’s Legend Preston Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress provides luxurious comfort for couples on the go at different times,” says Kansagra.

Why Others Love It

“We had a Tempur-Pedic for eight ears that started to sag recently so we needed to get another mattress. I naturally wanted another Tempur-Pedic but am having a hard time paying $4,000 for a mattress. I bought a cheap(er) memory foam mattress from Amazon and it was a complete NIGHTMARE. I would go to bed with no back pain and wake up with the worst spinal pain of my life. I went to several mattress stores and tried out numerous mattresses. The Beautyrest Legend was definitely the one for me," wrote Amazon user Heather.

New Delhi: Oh God, it’s happening again. But, you don’t worry, just be ready for the windfall. That’s because you will be biggest gainer. Yes, Jio is planning monsoon dhamaal, reports say. What’s added fuel to fire is IPL victory for Mukesh Ambani-owned Mumbai Indians.


After disrupting Indian telecom market more than once, Reliance is planning to do it again to celebrate normal monsoon, and of course the sensational win over Pune to lift IPL trophy. News is that Jio is coming out with a new promotional free offer very soon.

Experts have cited various reasons for this. One, the earlier offers have proved successful, and secondly the pace of addition of new subscribers into Jio fold is gradually slowing down. A new promotional offer will not only bring more subscribers, but also put other telecom companies, which are getting aggressive, on the backfoot again.
