An Iranian man has gone viral in his home country after people noticed he bears a striking resemblance to Hollywood actor Johnny Depp.

Western social media users also began to take notice, commenting on the man, who was referred to by local news sources as Amin Sa’les.

Photos of Sa’les were taken at a religious ceremony in Tehran and video footage of the Depp lookalike has gone viral on TikTok.

Sa’les was photographed and identified taking part in an Islamic mourning ceremony in Tehran, but is actually a local model from the northwest city of Tabriz.

As is customary for Depp now, Sa’les can be seen sporting a goatee and sunglasses, while his hair is also styled similarly to the star. Thousands of people have commented on the resemblance with people saying things like “Johnny Depp is Shia too” and “Johnny, what are you doing here?”

Over 2 million people have seen the original post on TikTok which appears to be from @de.charlie’s account.

The post was reposted on the internet with people commenting on Sa’les on Reddit, TikTok and Twitter.

“Iran has its own Johnny Depp,” wrote journalist Mike Elgan, highlighting an Iranian report featuring Sa’les.

An Instagram account apparently belonging to Sa’les, @dr.aminsales, was filled with comments from people talking about his appearance. This improved his follower count, pushing it past 10,000 later on Tuesday.

The other posts on the page appear to feature Sa’les in various photoshoots, where he once again channels his inner Depp.

Depp doppelgängers aren’t a new phenomenon, as the internet is filled with people all over the world who are doppelgängers for the Pirates of the Caribbean star.

In June, another Depp lookalike in Stockholm went viral with 2.3 million views on TikTok. He was filmed taking part in a public dance with fans rushing to debunk rumors that the man was actually Depp.

Depp has made headlines for reasons other than his gambling in recent years after he was embroiled in a public defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Depp won the case after her team said a 2018 op-ed she wrote claiming she was the survivor of domestic violence was damaging to her career.

Drivers have warned they could face a £5,000 fine for sunglasses https://digalx.com/drivers-have-warned-they-could-face-a-5000-fine-for-sunglasses/ Tue, 09 Aug 2022 14:41:00 +0000 https://digalx.com/drivers-have-warned-they-could-face-a-5000-fine-for-sunglasses/

Motorists who forget to pack sunglasses for their journeys could face fines of up to £5,000 as the UK receives an amber weather warning.

The Met Office has issued an extreme heat warning for large parts of the UK for the rest of the week.

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Dan Rudman said: “Temperatures are expected to peak at 35C on Friday and Saturday, with an isolated 36C on Saturday. Elsewhere, temperatures will reach well into the 20 degrees Celsius and 30 degrees Celsius.

With this second heat wave in less than a month, drivers are urged to be careful what they wear, especially when it comes to driving on a sunny day.

Which traffic laws are relevant for the use of sunglasses?

Article 97 of the Traffic Laws stresses the importance of wearing clothing that does not inhibit your ability to drive

The rule reads: “The clothes and shoes you choose to wear while driving should not prevent you from using the controls correctly.”

A point of the coded which is even more specific to driving in sunny weather is Rule 237 which states that drivers must slow down or stop if they are “dazzled by sunlight”.

This rule reads: “Keep your vehicle well ventilated to avoid drowsiness.

“Be aware that the road surface can become soft or if it rains after a dry spell it can become slippery.

“These conditions could affect your steering and braking. If you are dazzled by bright sunshine, slow down and if necessary, stop.

For breaking the rule, motorists could face fines of up to £100 as well as three points on their licence.

Those who contest the fine and lose the appeal could see this increase up to £5,000. It all depends on the seriousness of the offence.

The AA provides information on their website about driving with sunglasses and states that the right pair of sunglasses can prevent glare which can be life-threatening while driving.

They reached out to Optical Suppliers Associationwhich confirmed that there are two essential requirements for lenses used for driving:

  1. The vision must remain clear.
  2. Sufficient light to allow you to see properly must reach your eyes.

They added: “Sunglasses sold for general use may be too dark for driving.

“Also, fashion frames can obscure your peripheral vision if they’re not the right style, so it’s best to choose your shades carefully.”

According to the AA website, one of the best types of sunglasses to drive is one with self-tinting lenses.

Commonly known as “photochromic” lenses, they change tint density when exposed to certain types of light. Generally, the brighter the light, the darker the lenses become.

The Met Office issues an orange weather warning for the UK

The Met Office has issued a statement on the upcoming orange extreme heat warning which reads: ‘The Extreme heat warningwhich covers much of the southern half of England as well as parts of east Wales, will be in effect from Thursday to late Sunday with possible impacts on health, transport and infrastructure .

The UK Health Safety Agency (UKHSA) and the Met Office have issued the health alert and weather warning amid high temperatures set to hit most of the UK this week.

Breakingviews: Ray-Ban heirs inherit unnecessary Mediobanca feud https://digalx.com/breakingviews-ray-ban-heirs-inherit-unnecessary-mediobanca-feud/ Tue, 09 Aug 2022 08:54:00 +0000 https://digalx.com/breakingviews-ray-ban-heirs-inherit-unnecessary-mediobanca-feud/

MILAN, Aug 9 (Reuters Breakingviews) – Leonardo Del Vecchio’s successors inherited vast wealth but also tricky investment issues.

The rags-to-rich Italian entrepreneur died in June, leaving an estimated fortune of $26 billion. His main legacy is a 32% stake in EssilorLuxottica (ESLX.PA), worth $74 billion, which makes Ray-Ban and Oakley sunglasses and Varilux lenses. The business, which Del Vecchio founded as Luxottica and affectionately referred to as “la fabbrica” ​​(the factory), is expected to remain in family hands. The fate of Del Vecchio’s nearly 20% stake in Italian investment bank Mediobanca and a related 10% stake in $24 billion insurer Assicurazioni Generali ), is less certain.

Responsibility for the management of the family vehicle Delfin has been entrusted to the Managing Director of EssilorLuxottica, Francesco Milleri. He first crossed paths with Del Vecchio as an IT consultant in the mid-2000s and gained his mentor’s trust after spearheading Luxottica’s digital transformation. With the billionaire’s support and affection, he became CEO of Luxottica in 2017, eventually taking on the same role after it merged with French rival Essilor. He now also chairs the company listed in Paris.

Managing Del Vecchio’s fortune, however, is a big challenge. Other Italian business dynasties tended to entrust control to a family member. Stellantis (STLA.MI) chairman John Elkann, for example, oversees the automotive empire built by his grandfather Gianni Agnelli. Alessandro Benetton runs the family’s Motorway Jerseys group. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi entrusted his children with the task of running entire swaths of his publishing and media empire.

Del Vecchio, on the other hand, did not choose a successor within his family circle. Instead, it created a cumbersome governance structure. He gave his six children, his last wife Nicoletta Zampillo and his son equal 12.5% ​​shares in Delfin, but chose Milleri to oversee his fortune. Any major change requires 88% of the vote, giving each family member an effective veto, but also making it difficult for them to replace Del Vecchio’s protege.

This arrangement could over time cripple Delfin or trigger legal disputes. The more pressing question is what to do with the $1.5 billion stake in Mediobanca and the $2.4 billion investment in Generali. In an interview with Italian financial daily Il Sole 24 Ore last month, Milleri said he would handle the stakes in line with Del Vecchio’s thinking.

Yet the billionaire’s ambitions for the two financial investments have never been entirely clear. The entrepreneur started buying Mediobanca shares in late 2019 after falling out with CEO Alberto Nagel over funds for a charitable foundation. Del Vecchio accused Mediobanca of being too dependent on dividends from its 13% stake in Generali and of not pursuing an ambitious growth plan. Earlier this year, Del Vecchio backed a failed attempt to replace Generali boss Philippe Donnet, who has the backing of Mediobanca, and install a new slate of directors.

Now that the tycoon is gone, some family members may be questioning the reason for continuing his campaign. Although Del Vecchio never revealed how much he paid for the shares, Mediobanca has achieved a total return of just 2% per year since September 2019, when news of his purchases first emerged. Over the same period, the European benchmark STOXX 600 index gained 8% per year.

One way to add value would be to sell Mediobanca’s stake to a potential suitor. However, buyers are scarce. A bid from Intesa Sanpaolo (ISP.MI) would face potential antitrust issues given Mediobanca’s tie to Generali, which competes with Italy’s biggest lender. Andrea Orcel, the CEO of rival UniCredit (CRDI.MI), may be interested in Mediobanca’s advisory and consumer credit divisions. But his bank’s depressed valuation – it trades at just 36% of book value, well below Mediobanca’s 70% – is a stumbling block to a deal.

An alternative approach would be to support Mediobanca in its pursuit of a suitable M&A target. Nagel said he was ready to sell Generali’s stake in the bank to help pay for an asset manager buyout. Mediobanca has already considered buying Banca Generali (BGN.MI), a $3.3 billion fund manager controlled by the insurer. But its mooted offer failed to win Generali’s backing, insiders say.

Italian political concerns further complicate the picture. The collapse of Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s government in July rekindled concerns about the country’s debt sustainability, also depressing valuations of financial companies. If those fears grow, Del Vecchio’s heirs may find that pursuing the contractor’s feud becomes increasingly costly.

Eyewear billionaire Leonardo Del Vecchio, who died in June, chose Francesco Milleri, chief executive of EssilorLuxottica, to run his family fortune, estimated at some $26 billion at the time.

Del Vecchio’s family holding company, Delfin, owns 32% of the Paris-listed eyewear group, 19.4% of Italian investment bank Mediobanca and 9.8% of Assicurazioni Generali, the country’s largest insurer.

In an interview with Italian daily Il Sole 24 Ore published July 30, Milleri said he would manage investments in Mediobanca and Generali in line with Del Vecchio’s strategy.

How Stoffa Relaunched Cult Italian Eyewear Brand FOCA – Robb Report https://digalx.com/how-stoffa-relaunched-cult-italian-eyewear-brand-foca-robb-report/ Thu, 04 Aug 2022 15:02:50 +0000 https://digalx.com/how-stoffa-relaunched-cult-italian-eyewear-brand-foca-robb-report/

Among eyewear aficionados, Italian brand FOCA is widely believed to be responsible for some of the finest shades to deflect the sun. However, there is a small problem with the brand: it ceased operations more than 30 years ago.

But now a new generation has the chance to experience the manufacturer of yesteryear, as menswear brand Stòffa has released a collection of unsold FOCA sunglasses online and in its New York store. It’s the result of a years-long Indiana Jones-like effort between Stòffa founder Agyesh Madan and Italian eyewear historian Lucio Stramare to bring the brand’s specs back to market. .


To understand why the company was undertaken in the first place, a short history lesson is in order. FOCA was founded in 1946 in Cadore, a region in northeastern Italy synonymous with the production of quality eyewear since the 1700s. The founding of FOCA capitalized on a boom in technology and craftsmanship from within the industry after the war, and the manufacturer quickly gained fame for features such as hand-sculpted frames that hinged at 45-degree angles and for the use of naturally produced acetate which was allowed to ‘cure’ for months after being tuned to make the frames denser and stronger. “It’s the little details that are really beautiful,” says Madan Robb report.

However, changes in the industry have gradually made OFAC’s business model unsustainable. Faced with the prospect of reducing its quality and increasing the quantity to better appeal to a global market, the brand chose instead to cease its activities in 1990.

This might have been where the story ended, if not for a 2012 vintage car benefit that brought Madan and Stramare together. Stramare, whose uncle was once employed by FOCA, showed Madan some of the manufacturer’s surviving wares and the designer was hooked. The duo soon traveled to a warehouse and workshop where some of the latest FOCA materials were kept and passed on their findings to a two-person restoration team working under Stramare.

As Madan explains, the process wasn’t as simple as finding an old pair of sunglasses, cleaning and polishing them to resell. In many cases, the team found front frames and temples separately, which had to be matched based on the team’s knowledge of historical FOCA styles.

Four models in five colorways are currently available on the Stòffa site, representing the brand’s latest finds (its first batch of refurbished FOCA sunglasses released in June 2021). The Mercer Street store in Stòffa has a slightly wider range, including unique finds that have not been associated with additional inventory. According to Madan, the refurbished glasses are marketed in batches ranging from 10 to 50 pairs, depending on their findings. The oldest is from 1956, while the most recently produced pair is from 1981.

Stoffa FOCA sunglasses


Among the restored glasses, one characteristic is not vintage: the lenses. Each refurbished pair is equipped with new scratch-resistant lenses from renowned German manufacturer Zeiss, whose production is far more advanced than the lenses FOCA would have had access to when it was still in business. “Once in a while we find a pair that has the right lenses and we try to see if we can refurbish them, but lens technology has gone so far beyond that we try to use modern lenses,” explains Madan.

Another marker differentiates refurbished pairs from their original era of manufacture – a discreet Stòffa seal. According to Madan, the decision to sell FOCA eyewear through its own label is due to a common philosophy shared by the two companies. “They loved the idea of ​​keeping things under their control and making them to the exact specs they wanted,” he says. “They were okay not to compromise, and I think that’s a very nice thing.”
