Justin Bieber voted worst celebrity neighbor
Pop sensation Justin Bieber has been voted as the Worst Celebrity Neighbor of 2016.
The 22-year-old "Sorry" singer topped Zillow's 10th annual list of most undesirable celebrity neighbors of 2016. He previously topped the list back in 2014, but this time around he earned the highest percentage of votes in the survey s history, reported ABC News.
One in three participants -- or 36 per cent -- believe Bieber would be the worst neighbor. He was particularly disliked among male voters: 39 per cent of them deemed him an undesirable boy next door.
Reality TV stars Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna came in second with 23 per cent of the vote, followed by Tom Cruise, Taylor Swift and Tom Brady.
As for which celebrity they'd most like to live next to, the survey respondents picked a politician who will be moving house next month: President Barack Obama and his family.
About 14 per cent said they'd like to live next to the Obamas, followed by Dwayne Johnson at 13 per cent.
A relatively sizable chunk of respondents -- 28 per cent -- said they'd prefer to live next to none of the celebrities on the list.
"Maybe it's the additional neighborhood security or the possibility of running into other influential and famous people, but it s clear people are intrigued by the idea of living next to the First Family," said Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow chief marketing officer, in a statement.
"On the other hand, Justin Bieber continues to stir up trouble everywhere he goes and would likely be an unpredictable neighbor.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.
The return trip
It took us over five hours, drenched in rain, walking through treacherous ratomato sluggishly. It should not have taken more than two hours in a normal day. It was the cruellest irony that no sooner did we reach Panchkhal and sat at the Pipal Chautari to rest, than the bus we had left behind, arrived with people in the bus bursting with laughter on seeing us.
Prospects for Nepali talents in the Diaspora
When Indu, a Nepali American teen studying in Virginia, asked Panta whether she could inspire Nepali youngsters into music industry and convince their parents to consider Nepali music as a path to professionalism, the female heartthrob of Nepali music could not fully convince her.
Traffic Police in Kathmandu
As busy and hassling as the traffic system in Kathmandu is, the Traffic Police here have to handle an equally strenuous job. Over 1,400 traffic officers in and around the Kathmandu Valley battle against the pestering traffic and air pollution each day.
Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
