Bella Hadid selfie when her pants around ankles

bella-hadid-selfieSometimes we take our selfie anytime anywhere and share it on the spur of the moment to our friends and our followers and the same thing we guess is happening with the case of Bella Hadid or maybe intentionally. Recently, the model’s makeup artist Vincent Oquendo posted a mirror selfie, which was taken during making the cut for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion. Anyway, Bella is beautiful, but the question is that did she really forget to remove her whole pants, which is around her ankles (See the figure above) or she wanted to add quirk in the selfie to get the attention of the viewers quickly.

The man (Oquendo) who shared the image only stated that ““Congrats my little baby bells on getting @victoriassecret !” he wrote, unhelpfully. “It’s been a beautiful ride so far and I can’t wait to see what’s next! ❤️ #proud #blessed #worlddomination.”

Here is what Bella captioned There is no better feeling than being confirmed for the @victoriassecret fashion show !!! 👙👠What a dream come true..I feel so appreciative and excited! Thank you for this opportunity to walk next to some of the most inspiring and incredible women in the world!💪🏼Thank YOU from the deepest part of my heart.”

You should know that just after the photo was taken, she had to go for an audition, plus the funniest part is that Bella was in same costume while entering into the audition. But after interview, Bella said “I kind of black out when I go in there. I’m in my underwear, this is fun. But I’m happy with it — I think! I hope they’re happy.

A new payment technology application uses Biometrics (No need to remember password)


In fact, remembering password of your debit card is not a daunting task, but still there are numbers of people who often forget to install the numbers in their minds face different problems during transactions and online shopping and more. If they really face harsh problem then we have some happy news for them that MasterCard and BMO launched new biometrics app for commercial use available in the U.S. and Canada.

Let’s explain you the functions of this new biometrics app:

Actually, it is the new creation by MasterCard and BMO, a new payment technology application that uses biometrics, including fingerprint and facial recognition, to verify a cardholder’s identity and simplify online shopping. Plus, you should know that BMO Financial Group (BMO) will be the first bank in the U.S. and Canada to offer Identity Check Mobile to its corporate customers starting in the first half of 2017.

Read the full Press text here:

LAS VEGAS – October 24, 2016 – Mastercard today announced the North American rollout Identity Check Mobile™, a new payment technology application that uses biometrics, including fingerprint and facial recognition, to verify a cardholder’s identity and simplify online shopping. BMO Financial Group (BMO) will be the first bank in the U.S. and Canada to offer Identity Check Mobile to its corporate customers starting in the first half of 2017.

The rollout of Identity Check Mobile follows a successful soft launch that Mastercard and BMO tested earlier this year. The post-soft launch survey of BMO biometric program participants found:

  • Three of every four (74 percent) of participants strongly agree that biometrics are easier to use than passwords.
  • Nine out of ten participants anticipate using biometrics for online payment security in the future.

“The pilot tested the potential of delivering greater security and convenience using biometric technology. Our goals were to understand the attitudes and perceptions of our participants toward biometrics as an online payment security solution,” said Steve Pedersen, vice president, head, North American Corporate Card Products at BMO. “After using Identity Check Mobile, our program participants gave strong reviews on biometric security and ease of use, especially as compared with passwords. We are looking forward to bringing this same experience to our clients in 2017.”

Existing BMO commercial customers who opt-in to using Identity Check Mobile will use an app provided by BMO and Mastercard to verify their online purchases. While shopping the cardholder will be notified instantly by the app when he or she needs to verify an online purchase by swiping a fingerprint or snapping a selfie photo.

Often, existing identity verification methods take shoppers away from a retailer’s website or mobile app where a password is required. The process can be time consuming and can result in a shopper abandoning his/her purchase or having the transaction declined if the password is incorrect.

Mastercard Identity Check Mobile minimizes the need for passwords, dramatically speeding the digital checkout process while also improving security. A cardholder can verify his/her identity by using the fingerprint scanner or facial recognition technology (aka taking a selfie photo) on his/her smart phone with the Identity Check app.

“Making the online payment experience near frictionless and more secure is a priority for Mastercard,” said Ajay Bhalla, president of Enterprise Risk & Security, Mastercard. “Moving this technology beyond the pilot phase is a significant milestone in the evolution of payments. Online payments are being revolutionized; and now we are making Identity Check Mobile a reality for commercial use in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and soon, the world.” 

The U.S. and Canada availability of Identity Check Mobile follows the recent European rollout across 12 markets, including: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the U.K. The technology will continue to be made available worldwide in phased rollouts throughout 2017.

In the U.S. and as part of the White House “Lock Down Your Login” public awareness campaign, Mastercard committed to developing solutions that eliminate static passwords, utilizing biometrics to make payments safe and simple.

Yet another epic 360-degree selfie from top of the Sky Tower after Eiffel tower

360-degree-selfieThis man is really a crazy selfie taker he has no fear of height, probably his hobby is taking selfies from high altitude (means he is not acrophobic). Just in the early of this month the man got the media’s attention by taking an epic 360-degree selfie from top of the Eiffel Tower.

The man is Brady Dyer- a Wellington based photographer shared another epic 360-degree selfie from top of the Sky Tower after the Eiffel Tower. About the Sky tower, then it is the tallest building of New Zealand located in Auckland.

360-degree photography is not an easy task, so Dyer used Ricoh Theta S digital camera attached to a selfie pole to get his epic selfie, which he bought— especially— for 360-degree photography), because he says photography with these camera doesn’t require post production (which is extra task in photography to make the images incredibly better).

Brady dyer to visit USA in May next year, and has the Empire State building, Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center on his list of buildings to photograph.
