%name Polar bears won’t stop invading this small village in Russia by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

A group of polar bears in Russia is celebrating the holidays in a truly spectacular way, much to the dismay of local residents. Locals in Ryrkaypiy, a small village of less than a thousand residents, have seen their quaint little town invaded by dozens of seemingly malnourished polar bears.

Reports from Russia’s news group RIA Novosti, via CNN, reveal that the bears are apparently interested in discarded carcasses of walruses that have piled up over the latter half of the year. Members of the World Wildlife Fund issued a statement noting that the bears appear thin, and that food is definitely the primary motivation for their impromptu invasion.

OnePlus is about to release a smartphone unlike anything it has made before

%name OnePlus is about to release a smartphone unlike anything it has made before by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Since its conception a few years ago, OnePlus’s whole smartphone-making mantra was manufacturing high-end phones that could compete against the latest iPhone or Galaxy S handset without hurting your budget. Since then, it launched two phones each year, all of them sporting flagship specs at affordable prices. Of all the Chinese smartphone vendors looking to conquer western markets, OnePlus was one of the most successful ones, reaching a few critical milestones in the past few years. OnePlus partnered with US carriers and was also one of the first companies in the world to launch a 5G phone. In 2019, OnePlus launched two series of phones including the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T. Each model came in regular and Pro versions, which were still more affordable than alternatives from competitors. But come next year, OnePlus will reportedly launch a phone that’s unlike anything the company has made in the past.

Marvel finally solved another big mystery from ‘Avengers: Endgame’

%name Marvel finally solved another big mystery from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

‘Avengers: Endgame’ brought us a massively satisfying end to the first decade of Marvel stories. And while the film solved plenty of mysteries from Infinity War, it also sparked new debates. The time travel aspect of the movie is easily the most controversial one, as it wasn’t immediately clear how alternate timelines work. Some fans said that bringing back the stolen Infinity Stones is enough to collapse all of the additional time branches into the primary reality, something that even Marvel considered doing according to a deleted scene. However, it turns out that every action taken in the past spawns an alternate reality, which means that Steve Rogers going back in time to have that dance with Peggy Carter would create a timeline. By the way, that’s the official Marvel explanation as to what happened. Steve created a different reality for his retirement plan, and that’s where he lived his life with Peggy.

Marvel, however, has additional questions to answer, including major ones that concern the whereabouts of Loki and Gamora. Both of them died in our timeline, but the 2012 Loki created a different timeline when he left with the Space Stone, while 2014 Gamora is stuck in the year 2023 of the main timeline. While we wait for that to happen, we can tell you that Marvel has finally revealed the exact year Captain America went to meet Peggy and explained how old “Old Steve” really is.
