Henry Cavill called 'the perfect candidate' to play James Bond in future films

As the hype of Daniel Craig’s final Bond film ‘No Time To Die’ begins to wear off, big names in Hollywood will start to suggest or hint at potential successors for Craig’s now-vacant Bond Role and one director has called Henry Cavill the perfect fit.

The King’s Man director Matthew Vaughan, who has worked with Cavill on film Argylle, has stated that Henry Cavill is “everything you’d imagine Bond to have been, or be’, providing a major vouch for the face behind the Man of Steel and The Witcher.

Cavill is the latest addition to the Bond role’s seemingly-endless list of potential candidates which includes Tom Hardy, Idris Elba and Harry Styles, amongst others.

Do you think Henry Cavill would make a good James Bond?

Why is today the shortest day of the year and what happened at 4.59PM?

Why is today the shortest day of the year and what happened at 4.59PM?

December 21st is an important day in the calendar year for a number of reasons, mainly because it is the day when we welcome the Winter season through the Winter Solstice.

As a result of this, December 21st is the shortest day of the year on the Northern Hemisphere and as a result, the longest night. As a result of this, Tuesday will have slightly less that 10 hours of day and around 14 hours of night after the sun rose a bit later than 7am and set slightly before 5pm. The Winter Solstice can happen over three days, between December 20th and December 23rd.

While this phenomenon welcomes the Winter Season in the Northern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of summer in the Southern Hemisphere in countries like Argentina and Australia which are currently experiencing their longest day and shortest night of 2021.

People in the EU may not be able to travel if 9 months pass from their vaccination

People in the EU may not be able to travel if 9 months pass from their vaccination

On Tuesday December 21, the European Commission effected rules which make the European Union’s COVID-19 certificate travel valid for nine months from the completion of the primary vaccine schedule. This proposal follows the introduction of several travel requirements put into place by a number EU states in an attempt to reduce the spread of the Omicron variant.

The European Union’s Justice Commissioner Dider Reynders told Reuters that the Commission was against increasing requirements and was assessing relevant measures. This new rule will be binding in 27 EU member states as of February first and will those oblige EU states to welcome fully-vaccinated travellers with a valid vaccine pass in their respective territories while also being allowed to add further requirements if they deem fit.

Italy, Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Latvia, Cyprus and Austria require fully-vaccinated individuals from other countries within the EU to present a negative COVID test on arrival, a precaution which some have argued damages the vaccine pass’s credibility.

What do you make of this measure?

Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas’ is back at number one on the Billboard Hot 100

For anyone who doesn’t enjoy Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas’, we would suggest to take another crack at it because it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The Christmas anthem has made a big return to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 100, making it ‘the first song in the chart’s history to have led in three distinct runs in the ranking.’

The fan favourite was first released as part of Carey’s ‘Merry Christmas’ album back in 1994 and went on to become a holiday classic, hitting the number one spot in December 2019 and again in December 2020.

The song is truly the gift that keeps on giving, with The Economist reporting that it had made Mariah Carey at least $60 million between its 1994 release and 2017, with the number bound to have risen by a considerable amount by now.

What do you think of the song?
