  1. Boxes of iPhone X are pictured during its launch at the Apple store in Singapore, November 3, 2017. Photo: Reuters file Apple Inc announced changes on Wednesday that make good on its promise to allow users to turn off a controversial feature that slows down iPhones when batteries are running low, although it signalled it might take months more to deliver. Apple confirmed in December that software in its iPhone 6, 6s and SE models, which deals with dangers from ageing batteries, could slow down the phone?s performance. The company is facing lawsuits over the issue and Chief Executive Tim Cook said last week that Apple would release a software update to allow users to turn off the feature. The company said on Wednesday a beta version of its iOS 11.3 operating system would add new features to show battery health and recommend if a battery needs to be serviced. Users would also be able to see if the power management feature that prevents unexpected shutdowns is on and can choose to turn it off. However, the company did not specify exactly when that update would be available, saying only that it would come after the planned release of iOS 11.3 this spring that adds a slew of new animojis and features for its health app.
  2. We've seen rumours about the release date of an updated iPhone SE release for a few months now, but the only feature change expected has been a speed boost. Now, a new rumour claims that the new iPhone SE could pick up a popular feature from the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. © Twitter The iPhone SE 2, the rumoured successor to the iPhone SE, will feature a glass back, according to a new report. This glass back may be more than a random design choice, instead hinting at a specific, welcomed feature: wireless charging. © Apple The return of the glass back - word of which Tekz24 attributes to "a very reliable source" - might also indicate that Apple plans to bring the new device closer in appearance to the flagship iPhone X. That may be a step toward unifying the iPhone lineup's design language going forward. The iPhone SE 2 is far from official, and in fact rumours — what little there have been — haven't exactly been consistent. The iPhone SE was Apple's solution for customers who missed the older, smaller iPhone designs, but who don't want to use those older, slower iPhone models. Apple switched to glass backs on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X in large part to support wireless charging. Doing the same thing for the upgraded iPhone SE would give the 4-inch handset a visual difference from its predecessor, making it look a lot more modern. It's worth mentioning that the iPhone SE has the same design that the iPhone 5S from 2013 had. © Apple “We're thrilled with the response that we've seen on [the iPhone SE],” Apple CEO Tim Cook said during an earnings conference call nearly two years ago. “It's clear there's a demand there that's much beyond what we thought, which is why we have the constraint that we have.” iPhone SE is currently powered by the A9 chip used in the iPhone 6s from late 2015. A previous rumour claimed the new iPhone SE, which we expect to see around March or April, will be upgraded to the A10 chip used in the iPhone 7, introduced a year later. According to a leak from China, the iPhone SE 2 may be unveiled at the Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2018 event in June this year. Source: tekz24

Places to visit: Phuket and Pattaya are well known among the tourist circuits, and they can be unreasonably expensive and crowded. It is best to limit your stay here to a day or two. Instead, take the road less travelled and head to places like Chiang Mai, Krabi, and Thai Islands such as Koh Tao, Koh Phi Phi, and KohSamui. Accommodation: There are great hostel options in most towns and should cost you around Rs. 1,200 to Rs. 1,500 a night! Got a bit more to splurge?

And, if you're the ultimate adventure junkie (and got some money to blow), why not consider the Everest base camp trek? Accommodation: To experience Nepalese culture at its finest, you can opt to stay in homestays for as less as Rs. 1,000 a night. A good 3-star accommodation should cost you around 1,500 to 2,000 bucks a night. If you're travelling with a group of friends, you can opt for apartments (with wifi!) in Kathmandu through Airbnb for as less as Rs. 900 per person per night! Eating in Nepal: You can find some delectable local dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for about 200 bucks a meal. Trekking on an empty stomach is not a possibility with Thukpas, Momos, and a variety of curries and breads available along your way. 3. Hampi © Dancing girls The old town of Hampi is another great backpacker-friendly destination if historical architecture fascinates you. While this World Heritage Site's temples are a definite crowd puller, the Hampi Bazaar located near the famous Virupaksha Temple is a favourite haunt for backpackers. Places to visit: Make sure you don't miss the Virupakshaand VijayaVittala temple complexes. And once you're done, head to VirupapuraGadde, which is just a short boat ride away.This place is better known among the tourists as the “Hippie Island.” In this tiny town, you can try your hand at bouldering, explore some local arts and crafts shops, or relax in one of the town's manycafés and shacks.

Ooty © Emerald lake This “Queen of Hill Stations” is sure to take your breath away! If you're looking for a quiet getaway in the hills, Ooty is a great choice. Places to visit: Visit Doddabetta (Ooty's highest view point), Ooty lake, Pykara, Coonoor, and Avalanche Sanctuary for some picturesque views. Also, don't miss a ride on the Nilgiri toy train!

Meghalaya © Dawki_meghalaya As the name suggests, Meghalaya is truly “the abode of clouds.” This untouched gem in the North Eastern part of India offers unique experiences unlike any other part of our country. Crystal clear lakes, pristine waterfalls, dense forests, and picture-perfect landscapes coupled with amazing hospitality make Meghalaya a haven for backpackers. Places to visit: If you're planning to backpack through Meghalaya, it is best to set aside at least 10 days for your trip. It's unfair to cram all that this place has to offer in a quick trip. A great place to start would be the state capital, Shillong. When here, make sure to visit the Don Bosco Museum of Indigenous Cultures, Umium Lake, and Elephant Falls. Other must-see attractions like Cheerapunjee, Nohkalikhai falls, the famous living root bridges, and Dawkiare relatively easy to access from Shillong.

For a truly unique experience, you can also stay in a beautiful bamboo hut in Shnongpdeng and it would only cost Rs. 700 a night! Eating in Meghalaya: The street-food culture is strong in Shillong with a hearty meal costing less than Rs. 200! And, when travelling through the state, make sure you sample the delicacies unique to the regions. 6.

Apart from attracting many Hindu pilgrims, Pushkar is also well-established destination in India's backpacking trail.

  4. Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in New York, US, December 14, 2017. REUTERS/Brendan McDermid/Files SAN FRANCISCO: The biggest overhaul of the US tax system in more than 30 years ? set to win final approval by lawmakers on Wednesday ? may add fuel to a rally in technology stocks that has powered Wall Street to record highs this year. A lower corporate tax rate across the board and a one-time single-digit rate on profits repatriated from overseas looks set to benefit Apple Inc, Microsoft Corp, and other US tech companies with large foreign sales. ?The tech sector would certainly be among the largest beneficiaries if cash stashed overseas can be repatriated at a low rate and presumably used for stock buybacks or dividends,? according to a recent note from Yardeni Research president Ed Yardeni. The S&P 500 information technology index has surged 39 percent in 2017, helped by expectations that US President Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans would make good on promises to slash taxes. That looked set to become reality on Wednesday as the Republican-controlled US House of Representatives prepared for what should be a final vote on the tax bill, after which the bill will be sent to Trump to sign into law. The information technology index dipped slightly on Wednesday after hitting a record high earlier in the week. It is still on track for its strongest year since 2009. The tax bill cuts the US corporate income tax rate to 21 percent from 35 percent. That should boost all US companies? profits, although analysts expect it to help technology firms less than some other sectors ? such as transport, retail, and banking ? as tech firms already pay a relatively low rate. A more salient benefit for Apple, Microsoft, and other big tech companies ? which have hoarded hundreds of billions of dollars of profits outside the United States ? is the bill?s one-time tax of 8 percent on illiquid assets and 15.5 percent tax on cash and cash equivalents held overseas. ?I do think we?ll see some repatriation of cash from abroad,? Tim Ghriskey ? the chief investment officer of Solaris Group, which is overweight in technology and financial stocks ? said. ?Tech has much further to go.? Earnings growth seen above average Even as the tech sector trades near high price-to-earnings (P/E) levels not seen since 2008, and as some money managers turn to sectors likely to benefit more from the tax overhaul, other investors have poured more money into Silicon Valley. Over the past week, net flows into the Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund grew $581 million, according to ETF.com. That compares to a $709-million net outflow from the fund in the first two weeks of December when investors briefly worried the bill would include an alternative minimum tax (AMT) that would have limited benefits of tax cuts for many technology firms. The AMT, however, was excluded from the final package. Technology sector earnings on average are expected to grow 12.3 percent next year, compared to an 11.3-percent increase across the S&P 500, according to Thomson Reuters. But those figures are based on individual analysts? estimates for the companies they cover, and few of those have adjusted their estimates yet to account for Trump?s expected tax cuts, which means profit growth estimates for other sectors may rise. In its own forecast, UBS said the tax overhaul could deliver the technology sector an earnings boost of 5.3 percent next year, compared to an increase of 9.1 percent across the S&P 500. Some technology companies ? like Cisco Systems Inc and Oracle Corp ? may also receive a secondary, trickle-down benefit if US companies spend more of their increased profits from the tax cuts improving their productivity. ?To the extent that the tax package generates business spending and capex (capital expenditure), as it is intended to do, that will likely expand spending on software and technology,? Jack Ablin ? the chief investment officer at Chicago-based BMO Private Bank ? said.

  6. A pump jack is seen at sunrise near Bakersfield, California, US, October 14, 2014. REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson/Files NEW YORK: Crude was down slightly on Friday as expectations that OPEC and other producers will extend their production cut agreement were offset by US drillers adding the most oil rigs in a week since June, indicating output will continue to grow. US energy companies added nine oil drilling rigs this week, the second increase in three weeks, bringing the total count up to 738, General Electric Co?s Baker Hughes energy services firm said in its closely followed report. Brent futures fell 41 cents, or 0.6 percent, to $63.52 a barrel, while US West Texas Intermediate crude settled down 43 cents at $56.74 per barrel. Earlier in the week, Brent rose to $64.65, its highest since June 2015, and WTI hit $57.92, its highest since July 2015. Both contracts were rose more than 2 percent this week, which was the fifth consecutive increase. Traders said higher prices in recent weeks were the result of efforts led by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and Russia to tighten the market by cutting output, as well as strong demand and rising political tensions. There are also expectations in the market that OPEC?s next meeting on November 30 will agree to extend cuts beyond the current expiry date in March 2018. ?Market participants expect OPEC to extend the production cuts beyond March 2018 and stocks to decline further,? analysts at Commerzbank said, noting, however, that ?the higher price level should lead to a further rise in US shale oil production.? US production was forecast to rise to 9.2 million barrels per day (BPD) in 2017 and a record 10.0 million BPD in 2018 from 8.9 million BPD in 2016, according to federal energy projections this week. Output peaked at 9.6 million BPD in 1970. Goldman Sachs also warned of greater price volatility ahead, citing rising tensions in the Middle East, especially between OPEC members Saudi Arabia and Iran, along with soaring US oil production. Hezbollah?s leader said Saudi Arabia had declared war on Lebanon and his Iran-backed group, accusing Riyadh of detaining Saad al-Hariri and forcing him to resign as Lebanon?s prime minister to destabilize the country. ?The political situation in Saudi Arabia remains sufficiently volatile to spike crude values by at least 50 cents at any given time as was the case (Thursday),? Jim Ritterbusch, president of Chicago-based energy advisory firm Ritterbusch & Associates, said in a report, noting he did not expect Friday?s oil rig count to exert much price impact. Another factor supporting prices was strong demand in southeast Asia, where the number of tankers holding oil in storage around Singapore and Malaysia has halved since June.

  8. Cricket - Sri Lanka v India - Fifth One Day International Match - Colombo, Sri Lanka - September 3, 2017 - Sri Lanka's Angelo Mathews plays a shot. Photo: Reuters Sri Lanka all-rounder and former skipper Angelo Mathews has been ruled out of the first test against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi next week with a calf injury, but the uncapped Sadeera Samarawickrama, Roshen Silva and Lahiru Gamage are in the squad. Middle-order batsman Silva could be given the chance to make a late test debut for his country at the age of 28, along with fast bowler Gamage, who is a year older. Silva was called up by Sri Lanka last year but did not play. At 22, wicketkeeper-batsman Samarawickrama is the youngest of the trio but has represented his country at the under-19 level. Opener Kaushal Silva is back in the squad for the first time since January. The 31-year-old has not been called up since his first-ball duck against South Africa at the Wanderers on Jan. 14. Lahiru Thirimanne will add experience to Sri Lanka?s batting lineup in the absence of the injured Mathews after being given the nod for the first time since the tour of England in June last year. There was also a recall for seamer Suranga Lakmal, who missed the second and third tests against India last month with a back injury. Sri Lanka will be hoping for a better showing in the two-test series with Pakistan after being whitewashed 3-0 by India at home last month, in what was one of the most one-sided test series of recent times. The first test against Pakistan begins on Sept. 28. The second starts on Oct. 6 in Dubai and will be played in the new day-night format. Squad: Dinesh Chandimal (captain), Lahiru Thirimanne, Dimuth Karunaratne, Kaushal Silva, Kusal Mendis, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Roshen Silva, Niroshan Dickwella, Rangana Herath, Lakshan Sandakan, Dilruwan Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep, Vishva Fernando, Lahiru Gamage.
  9. geo_embedgallery UKHIA: Heavy monsoon rain heaped new misery Sunday on hundreds of thousands of Muslim Rohingya stuck in makeshift camps in Bangladesh after fleeing violence in Myanmar, as authorities started a drive to force them to a new site. With food and water shortages already making life tough, torrential rain brought back swamp-like conditions to many parts of the border town of Cox´s Bazar which have become a magnet for the Rohingya. About 7.7 centimetres (three inches) of rain fell in 24 hours and more is predicted over the next two days, the Bangladesh Weather Department said. Bangladesh authorities, who have already issued travel restrictions on the Rohingya, launched an operation late Saturday to get tens of thousands out of roadside camps and hillside shanties into a giant new camp. The United Nations says 409,000 Rohingyas have now overwhelmed Cox´s Bazar since August 25 when the military in Buddhist-majority Myanmar launched operations in Rakhine state. As existing camps are already full with 300,000 Rohingya fleeing earlier violence, many of the Rohingya have been forced to live in the open air or under flimsy plastic sheets. Police toured streets with loudspeakers ordering exhausted families to go to the Balukhali camp in Cox´s Bazar, which is being cleared to build new shelters. "We are shifting them from the roadsides where many of them have been staying," Khaled Mahmud, a government spokesman for Cox´s Bazar district told AFP. Mahmud said gradually all the new Rohingya would be taken to Balukhali to bring order to the chaotic aid operation. ´Disaster unfolding´ On Saturday, Bangladesh police issued tough new orders banning the Rohingya from moving out of designated areas. The order even prevented them from taking shelter with friends and relatives. Checkpoints have been set up at key transit points. With thousands more Rohingya arriving each day, Bangladesh authorities fear the refugees could swamp other towns and cities across the country. But the United Nations is already warning of intolerable conditions in the camps around Cox´s Bazar. The rain "has doubled their misery", said Mohammed Kai-Kislu, police chief at Ukhia near Cox´s Bazar, the new home for many Rohingya. Aid workers said thousands of Rohingya were drenched by the return of the monsoon after a respite of a few days. Arfa Begum and seven of her family tried to hide under rubber trees near the Balukhali settlement where they arrived five days earlier. "They evicted us from the rubber plantation," she said, referring to the police and border guards forcing the refugees out of makeshift shelters. "It took hours to find a safe place. We were drenched," she told AFP. Faced with a spreading mudbath, the Rohingya have started building bamboo carpets to get over flooded land. A human rights expert in Cox´s Bazar urged the government to shut local schools for three days to allow the Rohingya to camp in them. "It is another disaster unfolding. Thousands of Rohingya had no place to hide when the rain came," Nur Khan Liton, who headed Bangladeshi rights group Ain O Salish Kendra, told AFP. He said moving the Rohingya from roadsides and open spaces should be halted as it was compounding their troubles. Suu Kyi to give speech Conditions deteriorated for the Rohingya in what could be a key week in the crisis. Myanmar´s de-facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi is to give a nationally televised speech on the Rohingya case on Tuesday. The Nobel peace laureate, much criticised around the world for not condemning the violence against the Rohingya, must address the global outrage while not angering the military, which maintains huge power. General Min Aung Hlaing, Myanmar´s globe-trotting army chief, called for a "united" stance in handling the crisis but gave no sign of concessions. Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has arrived at the UN General Assembly in New York to press for greater help coping with the refugees and put more pressure on Myanmar over the case. She is to address the UN assembly on Thursday.

  11. Chipmaker Intel Corp raised its full-year revenue and profit forecasts on higher expectations for its mainstay personal computer business and growth in newer areas such as artificial intelligence and autonomous driving. Shares of the world's largest chipmaker, which also beat second-quarter estimates, were up 1.3 percent in after-hours trading on Thursday. Intel has been grappling with a declining PC industry it helped found and has been pushing into making chips that power data centers and also into autonomous vehicle technology. The company agreed in March to buy autonomous vehicle technology firm Mobileye NV, thrusting Intel into the forefront of the market. Intel expects to close the Mobileye purchase in the current quarter, several months earlier than expected, Chief Executive Brian Krzanich said on a post-earnings call on Thursday. The company is also benefiting from lower-than-expected declines in personal computer shipments. Worldwide shipments of traditional PCs were down 3.3 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, slightly better than expectations of a 3.9 percent decline, research firm IDC said this month. Revenue in Intel's client computing, the biggest contributor to sales and which supplies chips to PC makers, rose 12 percent to $8.21 billion. Analysts had expected $7.88 billion, according to financial data and analytics firm FactSet. "My biggest takeaway was kind of surprise with how strong the PC side of business was in a market where PC units appear to be declining in the 3 percent to 4 percent range every year," said Edward Jones analyst Dave Heger. Revenue from the data center business, a focus for the company, rose 9 percent to $4.37 billion, but missed expectation of $4.41 billion, according to FactSet. The company's Internet of Things business grew 26 percent to $720 million. Intel said it expected full-year adjusted earnings to be $3 per share, plus or minus 5 percent, or $2.85 to $3.15. The new forecast is 15 cents higher than the previous estimate. Intel also increased its full-year revenue forecast by $1.3 billion to $61.3 billion, plus or minus $500 million. Analysts on average were expecting earnings of $2.86 per share and revenue of $60.22 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. On an adjusted basis, Intel earned 72 cents per share in the second quarter, ahead of analysts' estimate of 68 cents. Adjusted for certain items, revenue was $14.76 billion, ahead of estimates of $14.41 billion.
  12. The Facebook logo is displayed on the company's website in Bordeaux, France, February 1, 2017. REUTERS/Regis Duvignau/File Photo Facebook said on Wednesday it would soon allow its US users to raise and donate money using its "Safety Check" feature, to make it easier for people affected by natural disasters and violent attacks to receive help. "Safety Check," launched in 2014, allows Facebook users to notify friends that they are safe. The feature was used for the first time in the United States last year after a gunman massacred 49 people at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The fundraising tool in "Safety Check" will roll out in the coming weeks in the United States, Facebook said in a blog post. The social network, which has about 1.94 billion users worldwide, activated "Safety Check" for users in London on Wednesday following a fire in a housing block that killed at least six people and injured more than seventy. It also made the tool available earlier this month following deadly attacks on London Bridge. Facebook also said its "Community Help" feature, which helps people affected by disasters find each other locally to provide and receive assistance, would soon expand to include desktop users.

  14. SAN FRANCISCO: Facebook Inc will add 3,000 people over the next year to monitor reports of inappropriate material on the social media network and removing videos such as murders and suicides, Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg said on Wednesday. Zuckerberg, the company's co-founder, said in a Facebook post the workers will be in addition to the 4,500 people who already review posts that may violate its terms of service. The hiring spree represents an acknowledgment by Facebook that, at least for now, it needs more than automated software to improve monitoring of broadcasts on Facebook Live, a service that has been marred since its launch last year by instances of people streaming violence. Last week, a father in Thailand broadcast himself killing his daughter on Facebook Live, police said. After more than a day, and 370,000 views, Facebook removed the video. Other videos from places such as Chicago and Cleveland have also shocked viewers with their violence. Zuckerberg said: "We're working to make these videos easier to report so we can take the right action sooner - whether that's responding quickly when someone needs help or taking a post down." Facebook is due to report quarterly revenue and earnings later Wednesday after markets close in New York.
  15. “How do you define the role of a Doctor?” Had anyone asked this question a few days back, I would have made him sit next to me and explained the values of the medical field and importance of doctors. But today if any kid asks me, I would say “Oh, he is a part-time life-saver and full-time Taekwondo expert.” The situation for doctors has boiled down to a point where they are compelled to save their own lives first, while focusing on that of the patient’s. Why? Because of the rising attacks on doctors by the relatives of patients, which have left many bruised and wounded. So to protect themselves, as many as 1500 resident doctors from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) will now be learning taekwondo, as a self-defence measure. All you aspiring doctors can now go and enroll in a martial art academy now. © BCCL “Prevention is better than cure,” Dr. Vijay Kumar, president of AIIMS Resident Doctors’ association told The Times of India. He further said, “Two black belt champions will impart self-defence skills to interested candidates daily from 6-7 pm and 7-8 pm at AIIMS.” So starting from May 15, you will have to take appointments according to their taekwondo classes. Reportedly, the doctors at Lok Nayak Hospital and Lady Hardinge Medical College have already undergone similar training where they were taught self-defence and safe evacuation by Delhi Police personnel. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Earlier, we have seen AIIMS doctors going on strike in solidarity with their counterparts in Maharashtra, by wearing helmets at work. AIIMS had also written to CISF for security, although that plan never saw the light of the day. According to a survey conducted at MAMC (Maulana Azad Medical College), nearly one in every two doctors are subjected to violence at public hospitals. As per the survey, verbal abuse was the most common form of violence, followed by threats and physical assault. Dr Vinod, general secretary of MAMC's Resident Doctors' Association, said “It is humiliating and frustrating either to be beaten up or abused for no fault. If there is overcrowding or no ICU bed is available, how is the doctor to blame?” In times where everyone thinks that taking the law into their own hands is their birthright, one can only trust their own strength and these techniques.

  16. Summer is here and in this scorching heat there’s no way one can hide their extra pounds beneath layers of clothes. The only way there is to move your ass and eat right! The foods items I’m going to list here aren’t some magical fat melting foods. Reason- there are no such foods! But there is a very specific reason to include these foods in your diet i.e. the satiating factor. These foods will make you feel fuller but give your body relatively fewer calories. Also, the volume to calorie ratio of these foods is high i.e. you get to eat more volume of food but you get less calories, and this is very helpful, psychologically, white dieting. NOTE: If you eat too much of these foods, you’re not going to lose weight but might put on more! Therefore, get yourself a nutrition coach who can set your diet based on your maintenance calories. Learn how to calculate your maintenance calories here. 1) Oats and Brown Rice 100g of Brown Rice or Oats have very similar calories and macronutrient profile to 3 Rotis (100g aata) or 100g white rice. One can easily consume 3 rotis or even 100g white rice (if very hungry) but consuming so much of oats and brown rice is quite hard. Brown rice and oats are very high in fiber and therefore a 50g serving might be enough to make you feel full. 2) Grapes and Watermelon Fruits are the candies of nature. Though very essential to get your daily dose vitamins, a lot of people consume these treats too much in name of healthy and put on weight. Grapes and watermelon are both utterly delicious and low in calories. The best part is that one full plate of grapes or two plates of watermelon have calories equivalent to a big banana. That’s a lot of fruit to enjoy! 3) Almond nuts All the nuts have almost the same macronutrient profile but super high fiber content in almond nuts separates it from the rest. A handful of almonds (10g) has about 50 calories only and is enough to kill your mid-day hunger pangs. I always suggest having nuts as a mid-day snack; you also get healthy fats and bonus protein with each serving. 4) Vegetable Juices Instead Of Fruit Juices Though delightful to drink, fruits juices are not at all satiating. Switch your fruit juices to vegetable juices, you will feel fuller, create a bigger caloric deficit (vegetable juices have 1/3rd amount of calories) and see a profound change in your skin. 5) Use Olive oil for cooking Remember all oils are 100% fat but the relatively less viscosity of olive oil allows you to cook to food with lesser quantity of oil. From my own cooking experience, I found that the same amount of food can be cooked using ½ the quantity of olive oil than one would use of any other oil. That is 100 calories less if you reduce 10g of oil in cooking. Well, that’s a lot of Food Gyan, now I hope you apply it in the kitchen and drop some weight.

  18. In times when cities and countries are at loggerheads with each other, in the list of places with worst air quality, China created a great example last month with the Asia’s first Vertical Forest. The vertical forest is said to generate 60kg oxygen every day. Now, while the world is going gaga over this brilliant concept, back home Bengaluru too has joined the bandwagon with a vertical garden that is a masterpiece of its own. © Facebook/ SayTrees This concept is the brainchild of SayTrees, and so far nearly 3500 saplings of more than 10 species have been planted. This vertical garden is situated in one of the pillars of Hosur Road flyover, Bengaluru with an aim to bring out the picturesque qualities of the city while fighting with pollution simultaneously. © Facebook/ SayTrees SayTrees plans to cover every pillar of this flyover that is stretched over 9 kms, with such creative work of art. Just like every other gem of an idea, this one too needs proper maintenance for efficiency and SayTrees has kept it in mind. An automated drip irrigation system will water the saplings every day and they will regularly look after those saplings. In fact, each side of the garden comes with a unique and separate design. © Facebook/ SayTrees Further, according to the SayTrees, these vertical gardens will help reduce urban heat island effect and smog, clean outside air of pollutants and dust, act as a sound proofing barrier, create habitat for birds and insects, and insulates and cools the building envelope, and several other benefits. The project is being supported by the Bangalore Elevated Tollway Private Limited. We just hope that taking cue from Bengaluru’s example, other cities too especially the metropolitans start implementing similar initiatives to curb air pollution.

The legendary group, Above & Beyond, are all set to make their way to India yet again and fans are excited. The last time they were here, history and ripples were created. This time around, the Group Therapy family—the group and the fans, together—will be creating magic, yet again and we simply can’t wait. © Above & Beyond But, while we can’t speed up time or use a time machine to go back into the future (where’s HG Wells when you need him?), we can reminisce with the group through some of their most enthralling musical productions so far—from 1990 onwards!

And yes, 'Castle On The Hill' and 'Shape Of You' are a part of the album but while those songs are topping the charts, here are 5 more songs from Sheeran’s new album that will have you humming and grooving, on repeat! 1. Supermarket Flowers This song is easily the one tune that gets your heart in knots. This is Ed Sheeran’s ode to his mother; in a way, it’s an ode to a child. He has captured the feeling of love lost so beautifully, it will have you in tears, however silent they may be. 2. Bibia Be Ye Ye This is going to be the new happy dance anthem. You’re going to play this as a victory song after a sports’ match; you’re going to play this when you’re happy drunk and looking to dance like a silly goose and you’ll work those crazy dance moves to this one and still look cool. Honestly, we’ll join in! 3. Perfect And then comes this beaut of a song by Ed. I’ll tell you what. 'Perfect; is the new 'Thinking Out Loud'! That right there is how I’m going to sum up this number. You’ll want to pick her up and slow dance to this; or just look at her while the song is playing. And if it just happens to come on while you’re with her, you, Sir, will kiss her. 4. Eraser This song is a groovy R&B number. Whenever Sheeran does such songs, he honestly sounds like your friendly next door hustler who is actually a great guy with a heart of gold. But, yeah 'Eraser' is the song that’s going to be stuck in your head long after you’ve heard it and so, just to get it out, you’re going to want to listen to it again. 5. Dive Again, after 'Perfect', it’s this. While 'Perfect' is about celebrating and confessing undying love, this one is about falling in love—you’re not there yet and you don’t want to be there unless it’s for real and it’s everyone’s story. This one will be played for when you want to give out subtle hints but you don’t really want to say it out loud. And it’s bloody sexy.
  21. How to add an Imgur upload button in the editor *This is my original tutorial. You may share it freely, but(!) consider mentioning who wrote it. 1. Create an Imgur account, and then register an application here: https://api.imgur.com/oauth2/addclient Now you have a client ID, which is to be used in the Imgur plugin we add to the editor. 2. Download the Imgur plugin from http://ckeditor.com/addon/imgur Go to your ACP-> Customization-> Editor--> Toolbars-> "Add Button". Upload the plugin file(zip) for installation. By now you can drag the button to the toolbar for it to show, but it won't function just yet. 3. Connect to your FTP-> Edit file: applications/core/interface/ckeditor/ckeditor/config.js Add the settings in the end of the file (remember to use your Client ID number): CKEDITOR.editorConfig = function( config ) { config.extraPlugins = 'imgur'; config.imgurClientId = '123535ae12372d4'; }; Save & upload, done. I hope this tutorial helped you! Result:
