New Delhi: In a setback to liquor baron Vijay Mallya, the Supreme Court on Monday rejected his plea challenging the criminal proceedings for willfully disobeying an Enforcement Directorate summons relating on payment of $200,000 to a British company for displaying the Kingfisher logo during 1996-98 Formula 1 events.

An apex court bench of Justice J.S. Kehar and Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel also fined Mallya Rs.10 lakh.

Mallya had challenged a Delhi High Court verdict turning down his plea against the ED summons for violating the now defunct Foreign Exchange Regulation Act.

Did you know that over 40-year-olds might lose up to 8 per cent of their muscular mass every decade? After the age of 70, the pace of decrease may double. Sarcopenia, or advanced muscle loss, affects roughly one-third of persons over the age of 50. Muscles are crucial for organ function, skin health, immunity and metabolism, as well as for common physical acts like picking things up, reaching for something, opening a jar or getting out of a chair. To put it another way, keeping muscle mass as you become older is critical to living a happy and healthy life. "Muscle loss is an ageing factor that is rarely discussed, and people accept its signs, such as a loss of strength and energy, as a natural part of ageing," says Ganesh Kadhe, Associate Director Medical and Scientific Affairs at Abbott Nutrition. "However, muscle fitness can often predict how we will age and remain active and independent."

Bumble, the women-first dating app, has released its predictions for the top emerging trends that will shape dating in the coming year. While some much-loved pre-pandemic behaviour has returned this year, the future of dating holds many new and welcome changes.

According to Bumble, the new year will bring us:

Resetters: The pandemic brought a lot of changes for daters, but many adjusted along the way by adopting video chat and planning virtual dates. 71 per cent of people on the dating platform in India are ready to hit the reset button on their dating journey in the new year. For 75 per cent of people, the pandemic has made them now prioritise finding a partner who is more emotionally available. For more than half of (52 per cent) people on Bumble the pandemic has drastically changed what they are looking for in a partner.

HUH Token is providing one million dollars worth of liquidity.

Holo, Tezos and potentially HUH Token are cryptocurrencies that have made long term holders a lot of money or could produce excellent profits in the future. Holo and Tezos may not have been heavily in the public eye in the grand scheme of cryptocurrency because more significant currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum exist. However, when examining the data, Holo and Tezos have produced large amounts of profit for those committed to holding the crypto.

HUH Token could be the next opportunity for people to purchase and hold. The token is currently in presale, however, that presale is ending very soon and anyone who misses out may regret it in the future. As demonstrated by Holo, Tezos and many cryptos before and after them, early investments will allow holders to benefit in the long run and even potentially in the short run.
