    Hungary, which will continue to receive Russian oil via pipeline, had been blocking an embargo for the past month as it sought assurances its energy supplies would not be disrupted.

    If both countries follow through, the total effect, along with the seaborne embargo, would be to cut 90 per cent of Russian crude oil sales to the EU by year end.

    “We should be able to soon return to the issue of the remaining 10 per cent of pipeline oil,” European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen said at a news conference early on Tuesday.

    Some countries will also have a longer transition for the seaborne oil ban.

    Android 13 just started its developer preview recently, with a scheduled release date to come after July 2022.

    The first two previews will also see Android 13 features added, but mostly for the sake of app and OS compatibility.

    The first Android 13 beta release doesn’t come until April 2022, when early adopters can try and give feedback on the operating system.

    Final compatibility testing starts in June 2022 when Android 13 reaches its first platform stability milestone.

    Kanye West sent Kim Kardashian a truckload of red roses for Valentine's Day.

    The Instagram snap was posted just hours after it was confirmed that Kanye had split from 'Uncut Gems' star Julia Fox, 32, whom he had been dating since January 2022.

    Despite this, Kanye recently took to social media to blast Kim for putting their eldest daughter on TikTok without his permission.

    Kim - who is now dating Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson - subsequently hit back at Kanye's "constant attacks" in her own post.

    Liam Payne's four-year-old son pretended he had coronavirus to get a day off school.

    "He figured out if he pretended to say 'I've got the virus' then he would get the day off school.

    Sadly for Bear, his scheme was found out and he received a "telling off", but Liam admitted he admired his son for his "childish deviousness".

    Meanwhile, Liam previously admitted he found it hard to stay creative amid the early stages of the pandemic.

    Many Batman films tend to have a similar structure where Bruce Wayne goes through the arc of becoming Batman.

    So instead of shaping the Dark Knight, Reeves focused on who Bruce Wayne was.

    Reeves leaned heavily into the reclusive loner persona and shaped his "quintessential Bruce Wayne" from there.

    "He's a guy when you see him, it's like a sighting - people are like 'Wait, that was Bruce Wayne?'.

    Toho, known for Godzilla, and Toei, for Ultraman and Kamen Rider, were rivals in the sense of traditional Japanese cinema; the linking thread comes in the form of Tsuburaya Productions, who worked on the special effects for Godzilla, Ultraman, and Kamen Rider.

    In 2016, he wrote and co-directed Shin Godzilla, which presented a new take on the long-running, beloved franchise.

    Subsequently, the Evangelion creator worked on Shin Ultraman, due for release in Japan in May, and is currently writing for Shin Kamen Rider.

    Considering the shared presence of the kaiju, the worlds of Godzilla, Ultraman, and Kamen Rider should be able to fit nicely within an integrated universe.

    A submarine shown in a video posted on social media could be a new, smaller Chinese class prioritising stealth and low cost, and used to counter drones, experts said.

    Video footage posted on Facebook in a group called "Comments on the PLA" appeared to show an unknown type of Chinese submarine surfacing in a reservoir.

    It appeared to be undergoing early-stage trials, because the footage, posted by a user called Liu Chengliang, showed two white stripes printed on the sail, as is commonly seen on new Chinese submarines during early tests.

    They included a model of a Type MS200 sub, with a length of 30 metres, and the Type S1100, which was 50 metres long.

    When news spread that a guard at a Russian art gallery had vandalised an expensive avant-garde painting by drawing eyes on it, it drew both giggles and groans.

    It’s one of many red-faced moments – some accidental, others intentional – that the art world has seen.

    Also in 2012 , Andrew Shannon punched a hole through a U$10 million Claude Monet painting, Argenteuil Basin with a Single Sailboat (1874).

    The incident took place in front of stunned art lovers at the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin.

    We have two children – our daughter was born when I was at Citi in Shanghai and our son was born in Hong Kong.

    Two years later, I was back in Hong Kong, this time with UBS as a managing director in investment banking.

    And then I was made an adjunct associate professor at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and taught one evening a week.

    I was taught technical subjects at school, but not career skills and I suffered as a result.

    When he first heard of Hof's penchant for having people submerge themselves in ice baths, Marianetti was sceptical.

    Not long after his first ice bath, he made the connection between cold exposure and having a better sex life.

    Inspired by Hof, scientists have experimented on Wim Hof practitioners to better understand the reasoning behind it.

    Meanwhile, a 2018 study showed that the Wim Hof Method activated regions in the brain responsible for pain suppression.
