It's safe to assume and believe that Rajkummar Rao spells perfection in his own unique way. The man has a record of giving power packed performances in all his movies and owns every role like they were written for him.

A big thank you to all you wonderful people for the love & appreciation for #BKB & for appreciating my work as #PritamVidrohi. It inspires me to work harder. ðð»â¤ï¸ðð#BareillyKiBarfi

A post shared by Raj Kummar Rao (@rajkummar_rao) on Aug 19, 2017 at 6:56am PDT

If I even begin to analyse the array of roles he has played, and how well he managed to essay them, I can basically go on for an entire day. You think you liked him in 'Queen' or 'Bareily Ki Barfi', then you wonder how did he slip into the character of  Bose. The man has proved his mettle time and again. He's won the award in the 'best actor'category for 'Newton' at the recently concluded Asia Pacific Screen Awards.

Won the best actor award at the most prestigious #APSA2017 (Asia Pacific Screen Awards). Thank you Maa. Thank u team #Newton. Don't stop chasing your dreams because they really do come true.

The actor dedicated the win to his mother, who passed away while he was shooting for this movie in Chhatisgarh. He believes her blessings ensured the success that his movie has been savouring.

the movie has also won the award for best screenplay. Rajkummar is currently enjoying the success of his web series where he has played the titular role of  Bose. We totally recommend it if you still haven't watched it.

It's time to tweak our travel plans, goals, bucket lists or whatever; basically strike out every other country on the map and head straight to Taiwan. Why? Because this island nation seems to be the only place that holds the key to the door of magical hotness. 

A post shared by é³ç¯æ (@n_nxd) on Oct 29, 2017 at 4:02am PDT

Remember as kids we often joked that “An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but if the doctor is hot, keep the apple away!” Guess what, Taiwan's Ning Chen has resurrected that statement in every young man's heart. Young men who are now faking illness and queuing up in front of her clinic just to catch a glimpse of her.

People from across the globe have found their tooth fairy in Ning Chen, and if there's anyone who doesn't believe in tooth fairies, we are sure they will after they meeting her. Dubbed as the “sexiest dental nurse in the world”, 25-year-old Chen has taken the internet by storm and we can understand why people are going crazy about her.

The medical industry in Taiwan is booming right now, all thanks to the army of men lining up outside Chen's clinic begging her either for root canals or fillings.

Earlier this year, she started working at Taichung-based dentistry chain Dr. Min and since then, many people have visited the clinic faking tooth aches just so they can talk to her. Well, like they say, “a man's got to do what a man's got to do.”

Reportedly, Chen was surprised when she came across her internet stardom, “I can't believe they say I'm the most beautiful dental nurse in the world. I'm so happy with all of the appreciation from people. I have a lot of gratitude for their love.” She further said, “It's funny for me. I enjoy the work, especially the teeth whitening.”

Thank god she doesn't work in the cardiac department; or else many people would have had trouble breathing properly. Well, as far as India is concerned, we'd rather eat that apple and stay at home, away from doctors instead of going for a root canal.

Indian cricket fans have witnessed a good rapport and great camaraderie between Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli which has also benefitted the Men in Blue. The two cricket icons share mutual respect and have been often seen coming to each other's aids in difficult times.

While Dhoni was graceful in making way for the Delhi lad to take over Team India's captaincy, Kohli was later seen returning the favour by throwing his weight behind the Jharkhand cricketer who was recently criticised for a poor run with the willow.

Similarly, when it comes to their love-interests, it's only understandable that both Anushka Sharma and Sakshi Dhoni are also fond of each other's company. From being snapped together in the stands to accompanying each other on team outings, the two beauties are often seen hanging out together.

But, if you thought it was cricket that has bought Anushka and Sakshi together? You're wrong. In fact, long before the duo fell in love with cricketers, they lived in the same town and also shared the same school.

It's already known that Anushka comes from a family with Army background. And, unlike other families of the Indian Army personnel, they, too, travelled quite a lot amidst the postings of her father.

While they were posted in Assam, Anushka and Sakshi attended the same school together - a fact that was recently highlighted by a popular fan account that also shared pictures of the two women at different stages of their lives.

Apart from the photos, Anushka had also revealed details about her time with Sakshi in Assam, early in her career. In a recent interview, the Bollywood actress spoke about her reunion with Sakshi years after graduating.

“Sakshi and I lived together in a very small town in Assam. When she told me where she lived, I said wow, I have lived here too! She said I went to this school, I said I went to this school too. And then I found a picture in which Sakshi is dressed as a fairy and I'm dressed in a ghaghara like my favourite idol Madhuri. Sakshi is extremely funny,” Anushka had said.

Kohli's journey to the top has been inspirational to say the least. He's incredibly committed to his game; he trains like a beast, sustains amazing intensity throughout the match and is one of the most dependable batsmen any team could afford in its squad. Kohli, at the moment, is at the peak of his powers and believe it or not, he's stacking up the numbers so fast that it isn't surprising he draws comparisons with some of the most distinguished players who have played the game, especially Tendulkar.

Statistics And The Death Of A Gentleman

Virat Kohli And The Unpleasant Obsession Of Watching Sachin's Records Broken© mirrorpix

Virat Kohli currently has a total of 50 international centuries, second only to Sachin amongst Indian cricketers. Of all players, he's eighth in line behind Lara (53) presently, and of course record-holder Sachin (100). At 29, it's apparent that unless he's plagued by a major injury later in his career he's going to surpass Sachin's record of 100 international hundreds till the time he's finished. But do numbers represent the true picture of their greatness?

At every major milestone, Kohli's comparison with Sachin neglects one major fact. The two players essentially emerged in very different setups. Sachin, for example, played against the golden generation of international bowlers including Allan Donald, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. Kohli, by those standards, has been lucky because the career span of good international bowlers has shortened, since other, more lucrative formats have come up. But despite that fact, even though the stats serve an intriguing read into their talents, shouldn't their contribution to Indian cricket matter more than how many records they actually broke in their prime?

Big Guns For Big Tournaments, Right?

Virat Kohli And The Unpleasant Obsession Of Watching Sachin's Records Broken© BCCL

By the age of 29, Sachin Tendulkar had played in three world cups and established his brand of cricket in big tournaments. His average of 58.83 from 22 WC games with three centuries was not only remarkable but a testament to the fact that no matter the competition, he could pace himself according to the situation. Kohli, by those standards, has been a let down in big ODI tournaments. In knock-out matches, he averages a dismal 31.36 in 14 games. He is yet to make an impact in big tournaments of the intermediate format but that doesn't take away from the fact that he's miles behind Tendulkar.

The real class of Tendulkar, therefore, unfurls in all its glory when you consider how the Little Master managed to score big runs even though he didn't have the support of a champion team at the time. The Indian team of the late 80s and 90s was mediocre at best. It was a time when players struggled to keep up with the growing demands of international cricket, an era when teams started to put serious efforts into fitness and made cricket an incredibly competitive game. By those standards, the 1998 season was Sachin's coming of age. He scored a staggering 1894 runs in that particular season at an average of 65.31, accumulating 9 centuries and 7 half centuries. To simplify what those numbers mean, Sachin was named man of the match 12 times and man of the series 4 times, all in a single year. In short, if you extrapolate Sachin's career, then his 1998 season was as big if not bigger, than Kohli's 2016.

Kohli's 101 Vs Sachin's 100

So by age 29, both gentlemen seemed to have reached peak performance on the field. Now, indulge me if you please. What happens if Kohli surpasses Sachin's record of 100 centuries by the time he retires? Will history judge him as a better player than Sachin? Do numbers truly justify Sachin's legacy? How do we take into account what these individual players have done for Indian cricket?

Kohli's success lies in the fact that he's building a team that's highly competitive and one which will be incredibly hard to beat at home or overseas. His almost maniacal focus on playing the fittest Indian eleven has reaped rich dividends. Every second counts on the field, be it a fielder settling down under a skier or a batsman squeezing another run for a misfield. These things will never find a way into the record books, neither will anyone account for it while making a case for Kohli vs Sachin. Players, sometimes, bring in more value than the credit they are given for. For that fact alone, it's wise to leave comparisons for a lesser soul, who needs to comprehend the contribution of sportsmen with statistical tools.

But Still, Who's Better?

Virat Kohli And The Unpleasant Obsession Of Watching Sachin's Records Broken© BCCL

Virat Kohli essentially is a born leader. He knows how to motivate his troops, he's incredibly involved with his players on and off the field and Indian cricket is definitely in good hands till the time he's leading the team. But the fact is, Kohli is not Tendulkar. He can never be. It's because Sachin made us believe that we could take on the world. A player who at the age of just 16 took apart some of the fiercest bowlers on the planet and inspired a lot of the younger players we currently see in the Indian team setup.

Don't go by numbers then. Just take your pick. Kohli, himself, would vote for Sachin as the greatest batsman to have ever walked the cricket field. It's not surprising but in a recent talk show it was incredibly amazing to see Kohli romanticizing his first meeting with Sachin in the dressing room, still awestruck by the opportunities he had with the 'Little Master'. And so, when a player worships his idol to this extent, how can we even dare to put the two in the same basket? Isn't it disrespectful of Sachin? Isn't it vulgar and pointless? Should we even try?

So the next time someone comes up with a Kohli-Tendulkar rundown, just put your tinfoil hat on and move on because no matter what numbers they throw at you, there's no way anyone can replace the audacity of Sachin's cover drives with some fancy integers.

While retirement can surely affect a sportsperson, it, apparently, seems to be doing wonders for Mahendra Singh Dhoni. While the Indian cricket team led by Virat Kohli is busy sweating it out against Sri Lanka in the three-match Test series, the Jharkhand cricketer - who has retired from the longest format - is making the most of his time away from the field.

Whether it's spending time with his family or training his dogs, Dhoni is undoubtedly catching up on things he missed all these years. Apart from his commitments to his family, Dhoni is also a responsible citizen and his recent visit to Srinagar is surely a testimony to that.

Inducted in the Indian Army as Lt. Colonel (Honorary), the 36-year-old paid an unannounced visit to the Army Public School and emphasised the importance of sports and education during his interaction with the students.

Students of the Army Public School, located inside the Chinar Corps headquarters in the Badamibagh Cantonment, were caught off-guard when the former Indian skipper paid them a surprise visit.

Education is important but big biceps are way more important- you must have heard this absurd saying but at the gym bro level, it does make sense. Bicep size matters and those you say it doesn't probably have puny arms. There are a lot of guys who have been struggling at the gym just to add a few inches on their arms and have failed.  What could be the possible mistakes?  In this piece, I'll be breaking down the most common reasons for your stagnant biceps growth. 

1) Training Too Often And Too Much

I have personally observed guys who directly train their biceps at least thrice or four times a week. Their other two days usually compromises of back and chest workouts. What you need to understand is the fact that your biceps are similar to other muscles, and therefore, they need rest to recover.  Though it's a small muscle group that recovers comparatively faster than other muscles, it still needs rest for optimal hypertrophy.  Also, your biceps are quite active in your pulling exercises (back workouts), which makes them one of the most active muscle groups. Hence, if you train your biceps at low or moderate intensity, train them maximum twice a week. In case, you train them intensely then keep your bicep day just once a week.

2) Missing The Right Variations And Using Wrong Form 

This is one of the most ignored factors when it comes to biceps training. Majority of lifters pick up the variations that target the muscle in a similar manner. For example- standing biceps dumbbell curl or seated biceps dumbbell curl. The issue here is that sitting or standing and even switching from barbells to dumbbells does not bring any change in the length of the targeted muscle (Biceps Brachi).  Okay, let me simplify it; in order to attain overall muscle growth, it is important to train the muscle at various lengths.  Hence, to trigger your muscle growth, you need to get your hands over different variations.  Confused? Just check this article out. It will surely help you train your arms better.

3) Skipping Compound Movements

I am sure that this would be a surprising point to a lot of readers. Compound movements are the holy grail of testosterone production. Well, testosterone is the most anabolic hormone in the male body that determines muscle growth, strength, and other pivotal male characteristics. There are tons of research papers available that shows that performing compound lifts help to boost testosterone production naturally. Hence, higher the testosterone production better will be the muscle development!  Also, according to a few researchers, training biceps along with a heavy compound lift; helps a lifter to attain better bicep hypertrophy.

4) Poor Sleep Quality

Poor sleep will hamper your muscle growth significantly. Lack of proper sleep increases the production of cortisol (stress hormone) in the body. Elevated cortisol creates a catabolic environment that puts adverse effects on your testosterone, muscle protein synthesis and the muscle recovery. Therefore, quality sleep of about 7-8 hours at night plays an imperative role in your overall muscle growth. Not to forget, the growth hormone stays at its peak when we are asleep.

Bigg Boss house is full of gossip. Every time you think you have seen enough, something interesting comes up making you more invested in the show altogether. While every contestant plays a major role in making the show interesting, Akash Dadlani always manages to grab our attention with his bizarre attitude.

Be it him making weird raps, talking dirty or abusing everyone around, he is quite a character. The Dadlani family's 'bujha hua chirag' always manages to surprise you with his stupid and silly antics. Since the time we saw him calling Salman Khan 'bro', we just knew he was here to entertain us to the fullest.

Well, entertaining us is one thing but the man tends to get creepy at times, which displeases you. Remember he asked model Lucinda Nichols who was evicted to roam shirtless in the house? And later he also asked Arshi Khan to expose more in the show for entertainment. At times he jokes, but we got to agree he is a little crackpot.

And as if this all wasn't enough, Akash asked Shilpa Shinde (we know the duo are good friends and are always spotted together) to apply lotion on his butt. Believe it or not, he did that. Apparently, he got some boils down there and went to Shilpa with a request.

As anyone would, Shilpa got annoyed and decided to go and talk about this to Hiten. She also mentioned how she will teach him a lesson. Akash being Akash, he went to everyone asking Hiten, Priyank, Puneesh to apply lotion on his “butt”.

Hiten lost it as well and complained to Shilpa that Akash needs to know his limits. However, Akash overheard it and felt bad that his dear friend Shilpa didn't come and talk to him about the thing. He felt that ideally, she should have told him that she has issues with his sense of humour. Later things cooled down.

Everything comes at a price, especially stardom. Probably the best and the worst part of being famous is the recognition that comes along with it. The modern technological advancement pressurises people to keep their social media flying high and if you spot a celebrity but have no proof of it on your profile, sorry bro, you ain't cool enough. Recently, Varun Dhawan had a taste of what stardom looks like.

Care less never stress

A post shared by Varun Dhawan (@varundvn) on Sep 25, 2017 at 11:14pm PDT

It was a normal day, and the traffic on the busy roads of Mumbai was on its usual halt. A crazy fan spotted Varun Dhawan on the road and the actor happily obliged her by clicking a selfie!

All of this, however, came into the notice of the good Samaritans at Mumbai Police. The Mumbai Police has issued a 'challan' and reprimanded him for causing a ruckus. The tweet asked Varun to take his image of a youth icon seriously.

.@Varun_dvn These adventures surely work on D silver screen but certainly not on the roads of Mumbai! U have risked ur life,ur admirer's & few others.

Varun was quick to revert and accepted his mistake with good humour. He tweeted a prompt apology as well.

My apologies ð Our cars weren't moving since we were at a traffic signal and I didn't want to hurt the sentiment of a fan but next time I'll keep safety in mind and won't encourage this. https://t.co/MEJk56EksG

The internet then got divided on opinion about how 'wrong' was this selfie after all. Some questioned the Mumbai Police for not addressing the woman in the picture who is equally involved.

Hey @MumbaiPolice what about the girl? She is equally involved in this misadventure. Have you guys sent an e-challan to her too? Or you will target only @Varun_dvn just because he is "an extremely successful" actor and hence a soft target? https://t.co/bpSGnZN4ey

Bentley has added a new variant to its Mulsanne range and it's nothing like any of the wheelers it has made before. The Mulsanne Grande Convertible is a sprawling convertible that comes with a top that can drop on command and that's not the only alluring thing about it-- the real thrill lies in the fact that only 19 units of its kind will be made so the fight to get hands on one will be close. But not close enough.

Why? Well, because it also comes with a 'kick you in the butt' $3.5 million price tag. That's Rs. 22.63 crores, a sum large enough to purchase a mini island along the Bay of Bengal. Now, the most expensive car in the Mulsanne range, comes to near about $338,325 which is a fraction of the price of the Convertible. What's the deal with that?

Bentley's New Limited Edition $3.5 Million Mulsanne Is A Looker And Performer© Youtube/Shmee150

Not much to be hassled about, honestly, the Convertible is just a limited edition Bentley that's being produced on the occasion of their 100th anniversary in 2019. They have focused on the overall design and bodywork of the new Mulsanne, giving it bespoke white interiors and a two-toned hood that add greatly to its luxurious appeal.

The car gets a 6.75 litre V8 mill capable of doing 530hp, so one can say even the performance is in place. 10/10 we say!

Love it or hate it, you just can't ignore Bollywood; that's how huge its impact is. So it was very natural to come up with a Bollywood quiz. Believe it or not, this is one of the toughest quizzes ever made and if you crack it, you have what it takes to be an ultimate Bollywood buff! Take this movie quiz now and see where you stand.

Arguably India's premier spinner in his heyday, out-of-favour Harbhajan Singh is left to ply his trade in domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League (IPL). The last time he represented Team India was back in March 2016 when they played against minnows United Arab Emirates (UAE).

But, despite being away from international cricket, Bhajji has not forgotten how to get the better of the opposition - something that was left for a poor Twitter user to find.

The Indian off-spinner, who is representing Punjab in the ongoing Ranji Trophy season, shared a photo of himself bowling in the nets on 22 November. While everyone was elated to see the Turbanator's return to the field, one particular Twitter user had a different opinion on his post.

The comments were surely uncalled for and the Indian spinner, too, wasted no time in returning the favour. Irked by the comments, Bhajji replied back: "Old dog like u can only bark. so plz continue to do that. this is what u have learn I think all ur life. you have already lost the battle coz u have given up on learning new things. everyday there is new thing to learn. Provided we want to learn. dont teach others ur ways".

If cricket is a religion in India, then Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar has arguably earned the status of a demigod for his on-field exploits during his playing days. With his masterful batting and calm demeanour, Tendulkar carried the hopes of a billion fans every time he walked out in the middle with his iconic 'MRF' willow. 

We celebrated his hundreds with him and also felt devastated when he wasdismissed. So much so, that when he decided to call it a day in international cricket, an entire nation was overwhelmed by a state of mourning. An icon, a god and a great ambassador of the game walked into the shadows.

There's no doubt that the name 'Tendulkar' will always remind us all of the greatest batting talent to have graced the game. But, the rapid rise of his young son Arjun has Indian cricket fans excited as they await the return of Tendulkar - a southaw this time.

At the tender age of 18, Arjun is already turning heads with his impeccable bowling skills. The left-arm seamer impressed everyone with a five-for in the Cooch Behar Trophy Under-19 match between Mumbai and Madhya Pradesh recently.

Following a noticeable first-innings lead by Mumbai, Arjun ran through the Madhya Pradesh top-order in the second innings with a brilliant bowling display. He sent opposition's top four batsmen back into the hut before dismissing Madhya Pradesh's No. 9 to complete his five-wicket haul.

Though he couldn't secure a win for his side as the game ended in a closely-contested draw, Arjun's bowling prowess was just too hard to notice. Unlike his father, who made a name by destroying opposition bowlers with his artistry with the willow, Arjun is a southpaw who is making waves for his bowling.

Rising rapidly through the ranks, Arjun was roped in by Team India to help Virat Kohli & Co. to familiarize with the left-arm pace of Trent Boult ahead of their first ODI against New Zealand at the Wankhede stadium. He was seen troubling the likes of Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane and Kedar Jadhav in Team India's net session.

It wasn't the first time when Arjun had helped his seniors in practice sessions. He had also aided the Indian women's team with his bowling in the nets at the iconic Lord's before their ICC Women's World Cup final against England.

In July this year, England witnessed an injury scare ahead of the first Test against South Africa after Jonny Bairstow suffered an unexpected knock on his foot. The England batsman was hit by a yorker off Arjun's delivery during a net session at Lord's. Bairstow limped out of the nets after playing just one delivery from the youngster.

Ever since proving his mettle in Mumbai's famed Inter-schools Harris Shield, Arjun has been the subject of immense criticism and scrutiny with the media keeping a close watch on the youngster. As noticed in other cases, a precocious talent cannot bloom naturally like other kids without the burden of a famous surname.

Whether he's on the field or off it, Arjun has already been the victim of high and unfair expectations. Neither those who expect another Sachin Tendulkar in Arjun, nor those venting their anger at him because they couldn't at his father, will do any good. But, Arjun has not allowed those things affect him or his game - a trait he picked up from his father.

While cricket has seen quite a few sons falling quickly by the wayside because the pressure of expectations of having to play a game with a famous surname in which the father had excelled, Arjun's hardwork and dedication has already made him an exception in his own capacity.

His continuous efforts to hone his skills and learn from the best has given the Indian cricket fans a rare opportunity to witness the return of Tendulkar back on the field, only this time as a bowler who is destined to carry the legacy of his famous father.

Most weight loss cases are driven by desperation to burn off the kilos as fast as possible. While it's good to start taking control of your life, but the thing is that you can't lose all the weight you gained over the years, in a few weeks. People don't understand this and start trying their luck with various diets. In case you are gloating over your extreme weight loss in a couple of weeks, here's what you should be worried about. 

1) You'll Lose More Muscle And You Wouldn't Even Know 

Losing weight too quickly also results in muscle loss. Weight loss does not necessarily imply fat loss only. In fact, most crash weight loss cases lose more muscle mass than fat. In a study conducted on two groups of people where one group was given 1250 calorie intake and another 500 calorie intake, the total eight loss was similar. However, the group that consumed very low calories had lost over six times the muscles mass than the other group. Therefore, it is not smart to go on a very low calorie diet as it may make you lose muscle mass also.

2) Muscle Mass Loss Would Slow Down Your BMR And You'll Burn Lesser Calories At Rest

With muscle loss, comes slow metabolism. Since your body does not have muscle, it needs fewer calories to maintain them. Your metabolic rate determines how many calories you'll burn every day, at rest. Multiple studies have established that going on a diet that is too low on calories slows down your metabolic rate and you may burn 23% lesser calories per day. Extremely low calorie diets also impacts your thyroid hormone which also slows down your metabolic rate. The problem is very serious as this slow metabolism tends to prevail for a long time even after you have finished dieting. Therefore, though you may lose weight quickly, you may regret it later.

3) Multiple Deficiencies

If you go on a very low calorie diet for quick weight loss, it is difficult to maintain the optimum balance of all the nutrients in your diet. This is especially true for nutrients like Vitamin b12, iron and folate. The consequence of such nutritional deficiency is that you suffer from issues like hair loss, fatigue, poor immunity and poor bone health.

4) Gall Stones

The function of the gall bladder in your body is that it produces digestive juices to break down fatty foods to digest them. When you eat little food in order to maintain a very low calorie diet, your gall bladder doesn't need to release these digestive juices anymore. When these digestive juices don't release, they may form hardened pieces of material inside the gall bladder known as stones. This may cause severe pain and may need immediate medical attention.

Other Problems

The other side effects that are linked to a very low calorie diets and quick weight loss are fatigue, irritability, dizziness, constipation, diarrhea and dehydration. 

Do This

If your aim is to lose weight and keep it off for the long term, you should aim to lose it slowly at a rate of around 1-2 pounds i.e. 0.5-0.9 kg per week. Researchers, over time, have established the fact that people who lose their weight slowly and with better eating habits tend to keep it off for a longer period of time. Though slow weight loss might not be too much appealing, but it is actually the correct way to do it. Also, try to lose under the supervision of an expert rather than doing it yourself by an unbalanced diet and the regretting in future.

You know your movie is in trouble when people talk about an airbrushed moustache more than the plot and powers of the superheroes in the film itself. When you release a movie that has a powerful star-cast, it often gets difficult for viewers to focus on each and every actor, at least not all the time. Well, it was tough to imagine anything outshining the superheroes' powers in the movie. If at all we had to focus on someone, it would have either been Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, or Khal Drogo from 'Game Of Thrones', i.e. Jason Momoa who played Aquaman.

But, for most people, it was Henry Cavill who managed to stand out from the crowd and it's not because he is Superman; but because he has a moustache that cannot be removed. At least not for the time being!  

Amidst mixed reviews, 'Justice League' will most definitely be remembered for only one thing – Henry Cavill's moustache and the botched result of using CGI to remove it digitally.

How do you know that the person in front of you is filthy rich? When that person sleeps on a bed of money since his bed sheet has gone in for a wash. Yeah, we know the comparison is weird but that's exactly what happened here. Warner Bros. spent $25 million to digitally remove the moustache using CGI and the result is this!

Did they not know about razors? Or was it some 'vaastu' trick that required Cavill to not shave while filming the scenes?

So, here's what happened. Henry Cavill was simultaneously shooting for 'Justice League' and 'Mission: Impossible 6'. For one he had to be clean-shaven and for the other he had to have a moustache. Maybe, Paramount Pictures was so impressed with Cavill's moustache, that they forbade him from shaving it. Given how the whole world looks up to Hollywood when it comes to use of wigs, fake beards, moustaches or other accessories; it's funny that Paramount did not settle for anything else but the real one. Things would have been really easy for everyone had Paramount come to terms with Warner Bros.

So, while Cavill was busy shooting for 'Mission: Impossible 6', the visual effects team of 'Justice League' too were involved in an impossible mission – to remove Cavill's moustache using CGI and botch his face in the process. 

Twitter is tough to impress and has no favourites when it comes to meme-ing the hell out of someone. This time around too Twitter was savage in pointing out the error and let's just say, we now have one more reason to watch the movie again.

What is premature ejaculation? Well, it's a condition in which ejaculation occurs within a minute or less. Many times, the “release” occurs before you want it to, disappointing both you and your partner. And, in some cases, premature ejaculation (PE) can occur before you've even had a chance to penetrate your partner. PE stems from both biological and psychological factors.

Climaxing Early? 4 Common Myths About Premature Ejaculation You Didn't Know© Thinkstock

There are many myths concerning PE, so it's important to point out that this condition does not occur because a man is too “hot and bothered” to focus on what is happening with his body, his first sexual experience involved “hurried ***,” which is affecting him now – years later, he feels guilty for enjoying ***, he's too concerned with staying “stiff.” There are, however, reasons why a man may be experiencing PE, but rest assured, the reasons listed above are not usually them. So, what are some of the other PE myths? Well, listed below are four common ones that you don't want to ignore. 

Listed below are four common myths about PE:

1) Myth #1: PE is a Young Man's Problem

Truth:  PE can affect any adult male, regardless of his age. In fact, a recent study assessed the occurrence and perception of premature ejaculation (PE) in 2,037 Korean men, ages 20 and older - 576 (28%) men were in their 20s, 609 (30%) in their 30s, 618 (30%) in their 40s, and 234 (12%) their 50s or older. Ultimately, only 28% of the young and middle-aged Korean men, in the study, self-reported experiencing the effects of PE. While 72% percent of older men, (40s and older), reported a higher occurrence of PE and more effects from it, which contradicted the myth that PE is only a young man's problem. In a different study that was conducted by the University of Chicago researchers examined the prevalence of premature ejaculation among men 18 to 59 years old:

• 18-29: 30%

• 30-39: 32%

• 40-49: 28% 

• 50-59: 31%

Their results also suggested that PE does not decline with age.

2) Myth #2: Men Come Out of the Womb with PE

Truth: You are not born with PE. In fact, there are actually 4 different types of PE. More specifically, acquired and variable PE is not something that is with you from day one. However, according Dr. Marcel D. Waldinger, a neuropsychiatrist, approximately 91% of chronic premature ejaculation cases are caused by genetic factors. What does that mean? It means that it is possible for something (i.e. stress, illness, etc.) to trigger PE (later in life) in a man, who is predisposed to it.

3) Myth #3: PE Occurs When a Man is Unwilling to Last Longer

Truth: Many women, whose partners have PE, often mistakenly think that their partners are just not trying hard enough to prolong the ***. Well, the truth is, it's not the man's fault. He simply cannot control when he ejaculates, and, as a result, is probably very insecure about it. The good news is, however, that PE can be successfully resolved by following an exercise-based treatment program (i.e. masturbation or full penetration exercises).

4) Myth #4: PE Can Be Treated with Viagra or Cialis

Truth: Sorry, but no it cannot. Many men ask us if they can use Viagra or Cialis to treat their PE, either because they do not know the difference between erectile dysfunction and PE, or because they are unsure of the function of these medications. Many men with PE believe that Viagra and Cialis will help delay their ejaculations, but that simply is not true.  

The Difference Erectile Dysfunction And Pre-Mature Ejaculation

ED, also known as impotence, occurs when a man has a hard time getting an erection or keeping it long enough to complete the act of ***. What causes this condition? ED arises when the ***** doesn't receive an adequate amount of blood flow, preventing it from “stiffening.” PE, on the other hand, occurs when a man ejaculates too quickly. PE becomes a problem when it affects the *** life of the man – and his partner. Therefore, a man with ED has a difficult time getting and maintaining an erection, and a man with PE has a difficult time delaying ejaculation. Viagra and Cialis are used to help men with ED get and get and keep an erection long enough to have satisfying ***, but these medications do not help men with PE.

In summary, there are many myths and misconceptions when it comes to PE, which can make it hard to decipher what is a legitimate concern and what is not. The truth is, the cause of PE varies, but regardless of the origin, it is not a controllable condition, and no one wants to have it. Thankfully, there are treatment programs that can help men and couples fix premature ejaculation, so it's important not to give up on having a satisfying *** life.

It's only been a week since Tesla unveiled its 2020 Roadster that boasted of sprinting from 0-100kmph in 1.9 seconds, an ahead of the curve record that shattered all previous ones like they never mattered. We hadn't even shaken that feeling of euphoria off before a Taiwanese start-up Xing Mobility came in and rained on Tesla's parade by positioning itself as their contender in the 0-100kmph performance sphere. Oriental, and exotic by birth, Xing's cheeky little Miss R is the next sensation in the motoring world and we'll tell you why.

Miss R, a rally inspired vehicle, is merely in its concept stage and it's coming from a company that is taking its first steps in the automobile industry. But the very ambitious brand is already claiming that their newest invention can do 0-100kmph in 2.0 seconds.

Tesla Roadster Already Has A 1340hp All Electric Contender© Xing

Yes we know it's 0.1 second more than the Tesla's base Roadster and Musk has already teased of packs that may lower 0-100kmph reach duration even further through "special packs" and "rocket tech" applications to the higher end models of the Roadster, but Miss R is something they should look out for simply because they too would want to exceed expectations and claims. That's how competition works.

Tesla Roadster Already Has A 1340hp All Electric Contender© Xing

2.0 seconds may look like a travesty in front of the Roadster's breakthrough 1.9 but its worth mentioning that there are still no other vehicles that have managed to attain this kind of performance. That makes Miss R the second fastest electric car in the world by acceleration.

Yes, the Miss R is all electric car and its makers have done a fantastic job with the powertrain of the vehicle in order to reach their claim. Xing has chosen to install four individual motors at each wheel, with the capability of producing a 1340hp together!

Tesla Roadster Already Has A 1340hp All Electric Contender© Xing

The only shortcoming of the vehicle is its limited range of about 250km, exactly one fourth of the Roadster, making the Roadster an all round performance car that can't be challenged as easily as one would wish, but we're pretty sure Miss R wouldn't have missed Musk's notice, especially because Xing has been loud about their swanky Magnetorheological Active Damping system that is found in premium performance vehicles like Lamborghini. The system allows the driver to adjust the suspension for better handling while driving. Even the state-of-the-art modular battery that can be liquid cooled is an attractive feature.

There is no intelligence on the cost of the hypercar, nor any information on whether it would be street legal and when it would be out for production, if it does. But it's a brilliant example for automobile posterity, makers are you reading?

OnePlus confirmed in its forums yesterday that none of its current devices, including the 3/3T and the 5/5T, will support Project Treble, even after they're updated to Android Oreo. In an AMA on the OnePlus forums, OnePlus confirmed that the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T won't get Project Treble support.

Project Treble is making its debut in Android Oreo, and it's set to potentially be a game changer in how updates are handled. Announced back in May at Google I/O, Project Treble is a new way of handling updates on Android devices. In short, Treble is designed to make it easier for OEMs to update to newer versions of Android. It does this by splitting up portions of Android that don't need to change with updates, such as the work done with part vendors including Qualcomm.

OnePlus's Current Devices Won't Get Google's Project Treble© Google

This process replaces the existing process that involves a wait-in period for manufacturers in receiving the new software release from chip makers to modify the software specific to their hardware.

OnePlus hasn't given a reason as to why it isn't adding this technology as part of the Oreo update that it will be pushing out to its phones. Only devices that ship with Android Oreo installed out of the box will be required to feature Project Treble, and, sadly, OnePlus's most recent phone, the 5T, ships with Android Nougat.

OnePlus's Current Devices Won't Get Google's Project Treble© Google

Still, Google's first-generation Pixel phone supports Project Treble, and the Essential Phone is attempting to support the feature, even though those phones first shipped with Android Nougat. So it's clear that adding support is possible. 

Many have been disappointed with the fact that the OnePlus 5T ships with Nougat out of the box. Android Oreo has been out for a couple of months now and smartphone makers like Sony and LG have already started shipping products with Oreo out of the box. It won't be surprising to see OnePlus say that the 5T will receive two major Android updates and this should include the Oreo and N - practically meaning just a year of software support. 

The good news, however, is that the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T won't be left out in the cold after Android 8.0 Oreo. They (along with the OnePlus 5 and 5T, presumably) are slated to get Android 8.1 Oreo-based firmware 'later'.

Did you know that the largest machine to have ever been created by humans is the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27 kilometre long tunnel-esque particle accelerator? The LHC, that is the pride and joy of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, will probably go down in history as the largest and most powerful particle accelerator to have ever been built and it is also worth a mention that the LHC houses integral machine elements that are as tall as five storey buildings and weigh 3000 tonnes. Imagine how enormous the machine would be! 

This $9 Billion Particle Accelerator Is The Largest Machine In The World© CERN

What a marvellous job, and speaking of marvels, remember the scene from 'Iron Man 2' where Tony Stark invents Vibranium using a long tubular machine that looks like the slides you see at a water park? That machine is a crude, home made version of a particle accelerator, a machine most revered in the scientific world for its ability to study particles that make up an atom.

This $9 Billion Particle Accelerator Is The Largest Machine In The World© Marvel Studios

This machine, that was first put to work in 2008, helps scientists inch closer toward revealing undiscovered particles that make up unsolved mysteries like dark matter and anti-matter-- in the larger scheme of things, moving ahead in unraveling the physical secrets of the universe like never before.

How does it work? Particles are beamed through the LHC at significantly high speeds and the machine is capable of taking the particle beams to an even higher energy in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions in order to collide-- and what do collisions result in? The releasing of energy or the further spitting of particles, newer particles.

The LHC facilitates the flow of protons and heavy lead ions within the tunnel that is made up of thousands of superconducting electromagnets (nearly 1700, as in the case of the LHC) and the energy released from their collision is observed for the purpose of studying the further split particles.

This $9 Billion Particle Accelerator Is The Largest Machine In The World© Wikipedia

It is as complicated as it sounds and in order to get accurate readings, the tunnel must be secured from all ends and the superconducting electromagnets must remain cool at â271.3°C. That's why the tunnel is kept in frigid conditions using liquid helium (the same element Dr. Freeze uses to ice out his targets).

Does the LHC emit radiation whilst in action? Yes. That is why the LHC has been built 100 meters below the earth's surface, on the France-Switzerland border. Naturally, a lot of money went into the construction of such a complex machine so far underground-- a total of $9 billion. Billions more are spent in conducting experiments every year and just the annual operational cost of the LHC is $1 billion.

Yes, that's a tonne of money spent in the name of science but we bet you won't be saying that when discoveries in the field of dark matter help power your vehicles or help send you to space in seconds... the possibilities are endless. For now, let's just look at the LHC as the largest machine built by the hands of man, a true technological wonder!

Getting your hands on the iPhone X isn't easy and retailers are overcharging customers just because of the lack of availability of the phone. Some retailers are charging INR 1,20,000 for the INR 89,000 model simply because of the lack of stock.

Apple has now made it even harder for customers to get their hands on the iPhone X as the company has now slashed retail margins on the iPhone X. Apple has slashed nearly 30% of the margin for large chain retailers and even small-scale retailers. Retailers are complaining that Apple does not want their retail partners to benefit while the company enjoys even larger profits. 

Apple Is Making It Harder To Buy The iPhone X in India© Sangeetha

Bengaluru based Sangeetha Mobiles have stopped selling the iPhone X altogether and some analysts believe the price cut is due to Apple importing larger quantities of the iPhone X. It has been reported that Apple is bringing larger shipments to India than most Asian countries. 

“Apple has cut margins on the iPhone X from 6.5% to 4.5% for large retailers like us, and if a customer pays by card, which is usually the case, the margin reduces to almost 1.5-2%," said Subhash Chandra, managing director at Sangeetha Mobiles, which has 400 stores across the country.

"Apple gives the least margins... How on earth do they expect the retailer to work for them for free -- our overheads are anywhere around 10%," Chandra explained.

To put things in a broader perspective, other brands such as Samsung or Xiaomi offer more than double the margin as compared to Apple. Most companies tend to offer a 12-15% margin to retailers and companies like OPPO and Vivo offer higher margins than usual.

Offline retailers are also complaining about online retailers offering cashbacks and hefty discounts on iPhones that cannot be matched. In addition, some handset retailers have only received 4000 units of the iPhone X since launch which is far less than what Apple had promised. In order to compensate for the lower margins, offline retailers need higher quantities of the iPhone X in order to level the playing field. 

So, if you are planning on buying the iPhone X anytime soon, we suggest you double check with your retailer about availability.

Back in the day, video games were restricted to killing time or, at max, getting virtual thrills you usually couldn't in the real world. However, over the years, the consistent evolution of gaming technologies has not only improved the user experience, but it has led to the advent of various world-wide competitions.

The emergence of tournaments like The International, the League of Legends World Championship, the Evolution Championship Series and the Intel Extreme Masters has taken the gaming experience to a whole new level. From just bragging rights amongst friends after a gaming night, the industry has forayed into a new segment popularly known as eSports.

Now, a gamer can not only enjoy playing his favourite game, but they can make a killing by winning one of the various global tournaments as well. More importantly, it served a great reply to those who believed that video games will only end up wasting your time and probably leave you with weaker eye-sight.

But, many still argue that while global gaming competitions might serve the purpose of making a quick buck, it would never be able to land a job for the poor-old gamer. Only this year, those imbeciles stand wrong with their moronic jibes.

Being an avid gamer and honing his skills has not only helped a 25-year-old earn global recognition, but it has also landed him a job. And, it's not just any average Joe's 9-6 job, gaming has earned him a position with the McLaren Formula 1 team. Wait, what? Yep, you read that right.

What does it feel like to be @McLarenF1's official simulator driver? Our World's Fastest Gamer winner, Rudy tells all. #WFGFinals pic.twitter.com/r3WxG9bFAs

Rudy van Buren was going about his business in the Netherlands working as a sales manager until he got signed by McLaren as one of their F1 team's simulator drivers for the 2018 season. The youngster defeated 30,000 other entrants in the World's Fastest Gamer eSports competition - a grueling 10-day trial set up by the McLaren F1 team.

Making the finals, Rudy and 11 other participants went to the McLaren Technology Centre where they locked horns across a range of simulations, including physical and cognitive tests. And, if you thought it was all about being quick, then you'd be wrong.

The winner was expected to have the mental and physical ability, as well as the engineering knowledge to help the team with the 2018 McLaren F1 car for the next season. The Final Week was comprised of simulations of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway - home of the Indy 500, the Suzuka circuit in Japan, the Brazilian Grand Prix venue Interlagos and Le Mans.

If that wasn't enough, the finalists took part in an actual 24-hour race at Le Mans in the simulation machines, with each player in a three-person team taking eight hours each. In the end, the final two - Rudy and his fellow countryman Freek Schothorst - were whittled down before spending four hours each in the actual McLaren F1 simulation car, the same one used by two-time F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne before their races.

Massive congrats and welcome to the team! ð https://t.co/crNj0Vy9fS

Their performance in the last hurdle was carefully analysed and graded by a panel of judges who ultimately declared Rudy as the winner. It was a dream come true for the former sales manager who was forced to give up on his kart racing career at the age of 16 due to lack of financial backing.

So, the next time someone tells you that you're wasting your time playing video games, we urge you to patiently educate the morons about the inspiring story of Rudy van Buren - the man whose passion for gaming earned him one of the most lucrative jobs in the motorsport industry.

Top Free Games on Android - November 2017© MensXP

'Clash Royale' is a popular tower defence strategy game that has been available on Android and iOS for quite some time now. The game is made by Supercell, the same game development company that gave us 'Clash of Clans'. While the characters used for 'Clash Royale' are similar to the previous game, the gameplay is completely different. 'Clash Royale' combines card games, tower defence, and multiplayer online battles, to offer a unique experience.

You'll also get to form clans to share cards, challenge clanmates to combat, and you'll have a variety of chances to unlock new cards. 'Clash Royale'  is free to download and play, however, some game items can also be purchased for real money.

2. Fallout Shelter

'Fallout Shelter' is a free game where you design and manage a Vault in the Fallout world. Since launch, it's expanded with new features and more characters, including those from Fallout 4. In this addictive building and management game, you take on the role of Overseer - constructing your very own vault and carefully managing the people and resources in it to create a thriving sun-free community.

You'll have obstacles such as fires, raids by AI bad guys, and the like but otherwise, it's a pretty standard builder simulation game. Just like every other free-to-play game out there, the game contains a lot of optional in-app purchases.

3. N.O.V.A Legacy

'N.O.V.A Legacy'  is yet another instalment in the popular N.O.V.A series that took a back seat in recent years as Gameloft was focused on other projects. N.O.V.A Legacy puts players in the role of Kal Wardin, who's looking to save the human race from hostile aliens and is only interested in doing so in style. 

 There is also a storyline, online multiplayer mode, and a rudimentary crafting system. Sci-Fi being the genre, the game gives off a very futuristic vibe and is most enjoyable on larger displays. This game is definitely one of the best first-person shooters on Android and the latest updates keeping pushing the benchmark.

4. Plague Inc

'Plague Inc.' combines the 'strategy' and 'post-apocalypse' genres. In this game, you must try to infect the world's population with a deadly virus, choosing from among the 12 accessible types. The goal is to infect as many people as possible. There are multiple diseases in the game, each with their own outbreak strategy and the game is very realistic. 

The game is highly appreciated because of it's challenging, almost open world type gameplay wherein the player can call the shots instead of playing through a predefined storyline.

5. Super Mario Run

Nintendo's first foray into a smartphone game is a winner, and now Android users can join in on the fun with this runner game. You can play one of three modes. The main World Tour plays the most like a traditional Mario game, with players navigating hazards and collecting coins to reach the end of the level in a limited amount of time, while an asynchronous Toad Rally mode has you competing against your friends' scores and collecting coins and Toads. In Kingdom Builder mode, you spend the coins you've gathered to customize your own Mushroom Kingdom and unlock more characters like Luigi and Princess Peach.

You tap the screen to jump, leaping across gaps and goombas to collect colourful coins. It sounds simple, but there's a surprising amount of complexity to the platforming. The levels are challenging enough, tasking players to collect coins of increasing difficulty. With plenty of stages and worlds to explore, they should keep you preoccupied for hours.

According to a report published in TOI, on an average Indians spend 2.5 hours a day on different apps on their smartphone.

Here are some of the apps where you can start small and learn to eventually bet big.

1. Zebpay

So here is the game, You can download the app put your money into bitcoin wallet and start purchasing bitcoin for as small as Rs 1000. You just need to track the changing value of the Bitcoin and then sell and purchase accordingly. One of my friends had put about Rs 1.70 lakh in Bitcoin for around six months and the value jumped to 3 lakh. Isn't that a smart investment?

There could be three scenarios with each transaction.

One of my friends got Rs 8,500 in a single transaction. Happy him!

These flat-earthers really are on some other level. They will do anything to prove the impossible, straight up refusing any solid proof given to them.

First, it was flat earther/rapper B.o.B who wanted to launch his own satellites into space to prove that earth really is flat. He wanted to raise $200,000 to help him launch satellites into space in order to prove everything that is already a scientific fact and has been proven before.

We thought that was stupid and unnecessary, but this guy named 'Mad' Mike Hughes is here to take the crown for the craziest flat earther ever.

A Flat Earther Will Launch Himself Into Space To Find Proof

In an order to prove this really credible conspiracy theory – that the earth is flat – Hughes, a self-taught 'scientist', is planning to launch himself on a mile-long flight over the Mojave Desert in a rocket of his own making.

He apparently built the 'steam-powered' rocket using scrap metal. Wow, such a solid plan, with no space for errors at all.

Reportedly, it will all go down soon, as the 61-year-old limo driver, from California, plans to launch the rocket, which cost an estimated $20,000, this weekend only, according to Associated Press

He told Associated Press, “I don't believe in science.

I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust, but that's not science, that's just a formula.

There's no difference between science and science fiction.”

A Flat Earther Will Launch Himself Into Space To Find Proof

Are you okay, Mad Mike? Do you realize that science is not something one can chose to believe or not believe in? Do you even know what science even is?

Probably not.

A Flat Earther Will Launch Himself Into Space To Find Proof

Moving on, his upcoming adventures to prove that science isn't real and that earth really is flat is largely being sponsored by a group called 'Research Flat Earth'. Mad Mike is basically trying to fly high enough to gather evidence which disproves the accepted fact, the Earth is round.

Recently, in an interview with Daily Plane, a website for 'flat Earthers', Mike said he only started believing the theory fairly recently.

And he also revealed that this first flight is not going to be it, he said another planned flight will take him dozens of miles into space and allow him to 'prove once and for all this earth is flat'.

He said, “It will shut the door on this ball Earth. This is the king of the deceptions. This is it. And once this domino falls and more people come to this side, then everything else — the dominos structure falls.”

Sure, why not Mike, we have all been waiting for someone like you to come and prove something utterly ridiculous, you are our saviour and the only hope for humanity.

A Flat Earther Will Launch Himself Into Space To Find Proof

Moreover, this weekend's rocket launch won't actually be a first for Mad Mike. According to The Independent, he took to the skies over Arizona back in 2014, which he said saw him sustain injuries which incapacitated him for weeks.

Well, good luck to this scientist who doesn't believe in science. We hope you and your questionable rocket are able to gather enough evidence to debunk one of the world's most fundamental facts.

 

I hope the flat earth rocket man succeeds. I hope he breaches the barrier of this false earth and frees us all, instead of crashing and dying, which is what he will actually do.
