  1. British author JK Rowling is credited with tempting a generation of children back to reading books with the Harry Potter series. Photo: AFP Harry Potter turns 20 on Monday when muggle readers in gowns and glasses from Indonesia to Uruguay will celebrate the birth of a global publishing phenomenon in 1997. "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" (later renamed "Sorcerer's Stone" for the US market) introduced the boy wizard and a magical cast of supporting characters. Penniless single mother JK Rowling finally succeeded after a series of rebuffs from publishers, and the book became the first installment of a seven-novel series that has sold 450 million copies worldwide and spawned eight blockbuster films. The Potter universe now encompasses theme parks in the United States and Japan and a permanent exhibition at London's Warner Bros Studios, helping to turn Rowling into a billionaire. No other children's book has achieved quite as much in terms of both commercial and cultural impact, turning an entire generation of boys as well as girls into enthusiastic readers who would happily join midnight queues at bookshops as each novel came out. If some of the early reviews took issue with Rowling's pedestrian writing and bald characterisation, everyone agreed about the narrative verve on show in "the Philosopher's Stone", starting with the delivery of a letter that will, like alchemy, transform the 11-year-old hero's life forever. "Once you start reading it, you enter a magical world, a world where you could be special, a world with clever things, with the idea that it all just might exist," Durham University education professor Martin Richardson told AFP. "The characters become part of the family. It starts to enter the nation's DNA," he said. "I think people will be reading Potter in 20, 30, 40, 60 years time, even if it's only for the story." Far beyond Britain and English-language markets, the saga wove itself into the world's literary DNA. The seven volumes have been translated into 79 languages ??in 200 countries, and Monday's 20th anniversary will feature fancy-dress reading parties around the world starting in Australia and ending in Canada and the US West Coast, at libraries, bookshops and British embassies. Love at first sight Marie Lallouet, editor-in-chief of a children's literature digest at the National Library of France, underlined the scale of the books' appeal beyond Britain, which already had a rich stock of literature conjuring tales out of the worlds of boarding schools and magic. "Harry Potter re-validated children's literature in the eyes of adults, and encouraged an entire generation (of French children) to learn English so that they could read the books as soon as they came out in English," she said. Rowling managed to magic "something very powerful" into existence, Lallouet said, by portraying one boy's struggle to come to terms with his tragic beginnings against the backdrop of an existential struggle of good against evil. The first print run of "the Philosopher's Stone" produced 1,000 copies ? all now highly sought after by collectors ? and earned Rowling a £1,500 contract from Bloomsbury after numerous rebuffs from other publishers. "I just loved it at first sight. I'd worked with Roald Dahl in his glory days, so I suppose the opening chapters reminded me a little of him," Barry Cunningham, Rowling's original publisher at Bloomsbury, told The Daily Telegraph. Bloomsbury affected one small change by persuading Joanne Rowling to publish under the nom de plume JK, convinced that boys would shy away from a book written by a woman. Still, Cunningham was not sure "the Philosopher's Stone" would make any money, and urged Rowling to stick to a day job while writing on the side. "I couldn't be prouder of the Harry Potter legacy: not only has it made reading cool again, it has shown that families can all enjoy great stories together," he said. "We can believe that there is a real purpose to standing up to evil. And, of course, we can find our own magic."
  2. The Sanskari Censor Board of Film Certification does it again! We woke up this Sunday only to hear how CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nihalani has a problem with the word “INTERCOURSE” in Imtiaz Ali's upcoming rom-com ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal'. Well, well…we ain't surprised at all. Mr. Nihalani aces in erecting (he might have an issue with this word too) such problems that might not actually sound like one. We are a bunch of 'sanskari' people who actually do ‘intercourse' but saying it loud offends tons of people! Apparently, Indian parents are not in favour of their kids learning this word. However, in the case of Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma starrer, he is generous enough to say that he is ready to clear it only if he gets 1 lakh people voting in favour of the usage of the word. In an interview on TV, he said, "You take voting from the public and I will clear the word on the promo and the film also. I want 1 lakh votes and I want to see that India has changed and Indian families want their 12-year-old kids to understand the meaning of this word." (c) Red Chillies Entertainment And just when we thought that a King Khan film can easily get those many votes, Nihalani decided to let the cat out of the bag! So these votes come with a condition! No votes from unmarried and people below the age of 36, yes that's the catch! (c) Red Chillies Entertainment “Importantly, I will not settle for votes from unmarried people. And neither will I be satisfied if votes come from people who are less than 36 years old. Assuming that an average age when a man/woman gets married is 23, I think they would have a 12-year old child when they are 36. Hence I want the voting public to be at least 36 years old. Only then I will feel that India has broadened its outlook and I shall recommend to the government that the word 'intercourse' should be included in Jab Harry Met Sejal and any film hereafter,” he told Spotboye. P.S. Just wondering what Nihalani has to say about the raunchy films he made?
  3. Britain's Radiohead returned to Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage on Friday, 20 years after a legendary performance at the festival, with a set that mocked Prime Minister Theresa May's election campaign and pulled songs from nearly all of their albums. The band from Oxfordshire, England, first headlined in 1997, one of the wettest years in the festival's history, when they lifted a sodden crowd with music from their album "OK Computer". Featuring songs about alienation, capitalism and modern technology, the band's third album sounds oddly prescient in a politically divided and anxious Britain in 2017. Fans expected "OK Computer" to feature heavily in the set on Friday, the same day a version of the album was re-released, including tracks that did not make the cut 20 years ago, called "OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017". The band opened with "Daydreaming" from last year's "A Moon Shaped Pool", followed by "Lucky", the first of a host of "OK Computer" tracks that included "Exit Music (For a Film)", "Let Down", "Paranoid Android" and "Karma Police". Singer Thom Yorke changed the lyric at the end of the song "Myxomatosis" to "strong and stable", apparently mocking a slogan that May repeated many times in her campaign. "See you later Theresa; Shut the door on the way out," Yorke said, in one of his few addresses to the crowd. May has yet to form a stable government in Britain, more than two weeks after an inconclusive national election. LIFE-CHANGING Radiohead's two-hour show went down well with fans, but left some newcomers underwhelmed, evidenced by a steady stream of people heading off to other stages. Tom Martin, a 30-year old from Cork, Ireland, was not disappointed by a band he had long followed. "It was the best gig I've ever seen," he said. Earlier in the day, English duo Royal Blood drew a huge Pyramid Stage crowd for a masterclass in straight, hard rock as their second album "How Did We Get So Dark?" went straight to the top of the charts. Lead singer and guitarist Mike Kerr, who formed the band with drummer Ben Thatcher in 2013, said playing the main stage at the world's biggest greenfield festival was "life-changing, terrifying and ridiculous". The festival started with a minute of silence on Friday morning in memory of recent terror attacks and the devastating Grenfell Tower fire before Hacienda Classical eased revelers into the first day of music. Peter Hook, the bass player from Manchester bands Joy Division and New Order, led the crowd in reflecting on "our hopes and our prayers for life, love, and freedom, the things we are here to celebrate". Other performers on the main stage at Worthy Farm in southwest England, included 81-year-old Kris Kristofferson and English indie band the xx.
  4. No matter what part of the world you reside in, you've worn a pop colour at least once in life. They may not be very household, but bright colours are bonafide winners as stand-out pieces to own (plus, they're not even that dramatic). But dug deep into, their appearance with denim is a most sought after combo. Two A-list, classic trends will obvs result in a big celebration. No? To help us score brownie points with this combo and our denim pairings as a whole—blogger Akshay Sharma gives us a peak into his denim school of thought... Your first ever denim purchase? I was probably 5 or 6, when my dad bought me my first pair of denims. I was obsessed with them! Until I gained weight and they stopped fitting me! Is denim a pizza or a burger? I'd say, a Hawaiian pizza. I love wearing denims, as much as I love pineapples on my pizza. Maybe a crime, but it's all about your guilty pleasures sometimes. Ever had a smelly jeans moment? Never! I feel ambushed & get paranoid when my clothes start to stink. I'm a mess (lol). How often do you wash your jeans? The more you wash denim, the more it'll fade & loose it's appeal (especially black jeans). So, I wash them once in a month! Ever tried dungarees? I have! And my mum tells me I look as cute as a baby boy in them. Your take on gender-fluid denim habits? I wear nail paint, gender neutral apparel and accessories almost every day. And guess what, my family is completely cool with it! But publicly, yes—I do feel interrogating eyes staring at me sometimes. In my opinion, it's no one's business to question an individual's style of dressing. I'm glad that people have now become more accepting, but there's still a long way to go. Dark wash or light wash? I've been wearing a lot of light wash denim this year. Probably because I've burnt myself out wearing an excess of dark washes in the past. Ripped or distressed? Ripped, they look unapologetically dope. White or black denim? Black! First off, it's hassle-free. But most importantly, they let you enjoy your red wine without the fear of a stain. Love or hate skinny jeans? Absolutely adore skinny jeans! But I wear them only once in a blue moon. Your go-to denim outfit? In summers—tank tops & distressed denim shorts. I prefer wearing minimal clothing in the heat! Actually, I even go commando at times. In winter, my denim jacket is a must. Your go-to denim brand? Levi's & H&M. One unusual denim hack that only you know of? To fade-wash your jeans, take baking powder & apply it on the fabric. Now, grab a few sketch pens & add colour to your denim (in whichever way you'd like). After a while, run some Hydrogen Peroxide (readily available at pharmacies) all over the fabric, (with the help of a cotton dab) to arrive upon your DIY-ed pair of fade-wash jeans! Ever committed a denim faux pas? Multiple times! I visited a casino in Goa recently, wearing distressed jeans like a boss. In a matter of minutes, I had to head to buy myself an alternate pair of jeans, to gain entry inside. My jeans could be excessively distressed for their dress code, but in my defense—I was too drunk to notice. '30 days of Denim' is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features 30 really cool men, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

  5. WASHINGTON: Washington's special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan stepped down on Friday, just as the United States is preparing to send thousands of more troops to the region. A senior State Department official told AFP that acting special representative Laurel Miller left the post without a replacement being named. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Miller is returning to a position at the Rand Corporation and that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has not yet decided what to do with post. The office was created when US officials decided that the conflicts in Afghanistan and Pakistan are inextricably linked and ought to be dealt with together. President Donald Trump came to office planning to slash diplomatic spending and Tillerson plans to cut several special envoy roles. Miller's responsibilities will now fall under the department's South and Central Asian Affairs Bureau, which has a much bigger footprint that includes India. But this bureau is itself leaderless, with no assistant secretary appointed to lead it and no one nominated by the new administration for Senate approval. When news site Politico broke the news that the envoy post had gone, it cited diplomats complaining of a rushed process and a dangerous leadership vacuum. But, also speaking on condition of anonymity, a senior official told AFP the decision was part of a broader policy review. Tillerson thinks the issue is best handled at a regional level, the official said, arguing that it made sense to consider India part of the equation. Trump has given the Pentagon and US commanders wide latitude to decide on the future of Washington's longest ever war -- the 16-year slog in Afghanistan. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis is reportedly planning to deploy up to 5,000 extra troops to bolster efforts to train Afghan forces to repel a resurgent Taliban insurgency.
  6. Motorola has been making phones that offer great value and deliver a great pure Android performance, which is the case with the Moto Z2 Play. The smartphone has some great features but it also lacks in some key areas. The marquee feature of the smartphone is the design and a great display that gives users an intuitive experience. The smartphone performs well but lacks a great camera to make it the complete smartphone. Having said that, the Moto Z2 Play is a smartphone that cannot be ignored in the crowded market and here are our reasons. Design Language © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma The Z2 Play is crafted with a very premium finish and has the right ergonomic feel you would want from a smartphone. The wide-angled display makes the smartphone stand out from the clutter to make it feel like a top-tier device. In fact, we loved the design so much that we would never want to put a cover on this beauty. You can, however, use one of the back covers that snap on like other mods for the smartphone, in case you want to secure your device from fall damage. The smartphone is thinner and lighter than the previous generation and makes the design of the phone one of the most noticeable features about the Z2 Play. Performance © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma The Moto Z2 Play is the hybrid of the previous Moto Z and Z Play from last year and Motorola has upgraded the device with a few specs that make the overall performance a great experience. The smartphone has the Snapdragon 626 processor which makes the smartphone 10% faster than the previous iteration and is coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. The screen has also been upgraded where the Z2 Play has a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display and works perfectly with the processor to save battery life. Part of the reason why the smartphone performs well is due to the fact the device has stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The smartphone is free from any form of bloatware and makes the experience a lot smoother when compared to other Android smartphones. The smartphone also gets the latest updates as soon as Google updates the Android platform. The other noticeable difference is the fingerprint scanner which can also be used as the multi-tasking button and the back button. The fingerprint scanner can be used to go back, switch apps or even open the camera by swiping up. You can even long tap the fingerprint scanner to fire up Google Assistant. Even though the capacitive buttons are present, with the three button Android navigation enabled, the two buttons are removed and you get more real estate on the screen. The smartphone handles gaming easily with no glitches or crashes, however, the smartphone does heat up if you play games for a long duration. We played 'Asphalt 8' and 'Limbo' on the device, and while the smartphone gave us a seamless gaming experience, the battery would run out quickly. Mods © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma The Moto Z2 Play is compatible with a number of Moto Mods that have been part of their ecosystem for the past three years. Every Mod released till date is compatible with the Z2 Play. New Mods such as the JBL Soundboost 2 deliver clear and crisp sound quality when listening to music and is probably our favourite mod for the smartphone. The turbo battery mod is yet another great accessory for your smartphone that adds an additional 3450 mAh battery life to the Z2 Play. The turbo charge mod can also be charged quickly just like the smartphone. You can even customise the back of your phone with various “Style Shells” that also supports wireless charging. Battery Life © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma The Moto Z2 Play has a 3000 mAh non-removable battery which may sound enough for a smartphone but it simply did not feel enough. The phone would last 13-15 hours with regular use and intense use it would drop down to 11 hours. The smartphone does have fast charging via the USB Type-C port however if you plan to game or use the phone extensively, we advise you to invest in the battery mod. Camera © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma The Moto Z2 Play has a 12-MP camera and has support for PDAF and laser autofocus. Having said that, we felt that the camera was not as good as we would have expected. The smartphone delivers great daylight images reflecting true to life colours however the camera takes a beating when we take images in a closed environment or in low-lit areas. We found this surprising as the primary camera has an aperture of f/1.7 which in theory should deliver good low-light pictures. The smartphone has a 5-MP front-facing camera and does a decent job of taking selfies but suffers from the same problem of taking good images in low-lit and closed environments. The images taken are often over exposed and could only be controlled by adjusting the ISO in manual mode. Here are some sample images so you can judge for yourself: © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma The Final Say © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma The Moto Z2 Play is a thinner and lighter version of the Z play but lacks the battery life to deliver a full experience. Aesthetically, the smartphone looks great and offers mods that can enhance the quality but it would cost you extra. The smartphone has a fairly decent camera which works great in open environments but suffers in quality when it comes to low-lit and indoor environments. The smartphone performs well thanks to the Snapdragon 626 SoC and the pure Android software, which is by far the marquee feature of the smartphone.
  7. China has just taken their city planning to whole other level! The country always has eccentric ways of town planning and this time, they have outdone themselves. The city of Chongqing now literally has a road that is on the rooftop of a 5-storey building. Sounds so unbelievable, right? But, there are pictures to prove it. © Shanghaiist The one of a kind two-lane public road runs parallel to trees and shops on top of the building. © Shanghaiist Reportedly, this specific building is located in a hilly region and therefore roads were required for connectivity. The ground floor of the building has a lot of shops and a parking lot as well. © Shanghaiist Along with this unique structure, the city of Chongqing also has a monorail that passes through residential buildings, a 13-storey high pedestrian bridge and a system of complex flyovers. © Shanghaiist This city probably has the most unique and complex urban planning in the entire world! When do you think India will develop this kind of awesome architecture?
  8. The next time you're hoping for *** over Tinder, Pahlaj Nihalani might come running for you. Reason being, your bedtime stories are now at the whip of the Indian movie censor board. As quoted to Indian Express in an interview recently—the chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification has cited his displeasure over the usage of the word 'intercourse' in the second promo of 'Jab Harry Met Sejal'. Why? Because apparently—Indian families are not in favour of their kids knowing the meaning of the word 'intercourse'. These are not my words, but of sanskari, Mr. Nihalani. TBH: I'm wondering if I'm even sitting in 2017 and if, *** education is a prevelant reality in India... ©Indian Express In the second promo of the movie, 'Jab Harry Met Sejal'—Anushka Sharma uses the word 'intercourse' in a discussion with Shah Rukh Khan. In order for JHMS to attain a U/A certificate, they might have to do away with the 'highly inappropriate' word. But wait, that's not what's funny! ©Jackace If reports are to be believed, Mr. Nihalani is ready to change his mind over this issue if 1 lakh Indians vote in favour of it. Not sure if this joke is off 'The Kapil Sharma Show' or another example of 'easier said than done'. All I know is, I couldn't care less.
  9. Karisma Kapoor is such a heartthrob. Even today, she makes us go gaga over her beauty and elegance. She ruled our hearts in the 90's and it was a sheer delight to watch her dance and act. Well, it wouldn't be wrong to say that she was a complete entertainment package who would make you go crazy with just her smile. #sun#sea#sand🌴#thailanddiaries🏖 A post shared by KK (@therealkarismakapoor) on Dec 31, 2016 at 6:34am PST And even today, Lolo is still our favourite. She has millions of fans and she makes sure that they know exactly what she is doing. The gorgeous diva, at present, is holidaying in Europe and treating her followers with snaps, every now and then. First, she was spotted in London and now she is having a great time in the French Riviera. Sundays be like 💆🏻#summertime#sunday#summerishere A post shared by KK (@therealkarismakapoor) on Apr 9, 2017 at 2:22am PDT The ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai' gstar is making sure that her fans get the fullest experience and posted a sizzling picture of herself on Instagram. And boy, we just can't take our eyes off her! Wearing a black bikini, she is raising the temperature in India from France itself. She captioned the picture, "Sunny days #frenchreviera#holidaytime #summer2017." Sunny days 🌞#frenchreviera🌴#holidaytime😎 #summer2017 A post shared by KK (@therealkarismakapoor) on Jun 23, 2017 at 3:45am PDT A few days ago, she sent her love from London to all her lovely fans and her Instagram was just flooded with comments. Later, she also shared a picture, where she was seen driving a slick car. Love from london 💋#family#friends#funtimes#summer2017☀️ A post shared by KK (@therealkarismakapoor) on Jun 16, 2017 at 4:18am PDT Every picture that Lolo is sharing makes us wish we could travel to Europe now and have a holiday as well. Bonjour !😊#holidaytime#funinthesun☀️🏝#frenchreviera#summer2017🌞 A post shared by KK (@therealkarismakapoor) on Jun 22, 2017 at 12:46am PDT However, apart from all this, there is a buzz around town that Karisma is soon going to tie the knot with her rumoured boyfriend, Sandeep Toshniwal, CEO of a leading pharmaceutical company. There are reports that Sandeep and his wife Ashrita are getting divorced. Once he signs the dotted line, he will make his relationship with Karisma official. #itsawrap💃🏻 #globeoilawards#delhi A post shared by KK (@therealkarismakapoor) on Feb 2, 2017 at 8:53am PST Well, we don't know if a wedding is on cards or not, but the stunning diva is surely having the best time in Europe and enjoying life to the fullest.
  10. Who doesn't like watching Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif sharing screen space together? There is no one in Bollywood who can deny that these two create magic when seen together on-screen. The camaraderie between the two is so refreshing that one can never get enough of them. The duo is one of the reasons why ‘Tiger Zinda Hai' has created so much buzz in the industry even though its release is almost six months down the line. A post shared by Katrina Kaif (@katrinakaif) on May 16, 2017 at 12:13am PDT ‘Ek Tha Tiger' made big bucks at the box office and now Salman and Katrina are all busy with a comeback. It will be a sheer delight to watch these two charming actors on-screen after five years. Director Ali Abbas is doing everything to make sure that the sequel of the film makes it as big as ‘Ek Tha Tiger'. As per latest reports, the makers are planning to convert this into a franchise. (c) Instagram Talking to DNA, a source disclosed, “Aditya Chopra and Salman have spoken about taking forward the Tiger franchise and end it with a third part. The main team remains the same. As of now, the plan is for Ali Abbas Zafar, who's directing ‘Tiger Zinda Hai', to helm the third part, too. The ending of ‘Tiger Zinda Hai' is being designed in a way that it leaves room for another, most probably the final sequel. It will be a fresh story with newer characters and a bigger adventure, and will culminate the series.” ‘Tiger Zinda Hai' will begin from where ‘Ek Tha Tiger' ended and the third film will continue from the ending of the second part of the franchise. The filmmakers are looking for a script that fits the plan. However, nothing officially has been announced yet, so we still don't know if the third part is going to be made or not. Tiger time ... in the desert .... A post shared by Katrina Kaif (@katrinakaif) on May 12, 2017 at 7:57am PDT Well, if this happens, it is going to be the best gift for Salman-Katrina fans! Don't you guys agree?
  11. Yes, this happened and we didn't see this coming. Rapper and the only time we liked bleached hair—Eminem has now fallen prey to the 'stache. But umm...maybe in the wrong season. Making an appearance at the premiere of HBO's 'The Defiant Ones', the American artist/record producer/actor gave the globe a facial hair shocker. As an appalling change from his signature look of the 2000s, here's affirmation that when it comes to his grooming habits, the rapper's really not afraid. ©Popsugar The biggest surprise here: the mug has caught his fancy in the summer months. While lesser mortals like me, are shaving every part of our bodies (to keep pace with the sun), rapper gods are celebrating #BeardReadySummer. Here's another image of toddler-faced, Marshall Mathers AKA Eminem sporting his uncalled-for hair... Just a couple of guys from Compton and one from Detroit. With a beard. #thedefiantones A post shared by Marshall Mathers (@eminem) on Jun 23, 2017 at 12:53pm PDT Our verdict: We're a bag of mixed feelings. Most primarily, because the beard contouring is doing nothing for his face—neither uplifting his cheekbones nor rendering an image of a scruffy, forced-upon Greek god.
  12. You don't lose fat in the gym. You lose fat in the kitchen. Exercising preserves muscle mass. Up to 80% of your war against fat loss should be fought by making nutrition a weapon. The rest 20 percent is building and preserving lean muscle mass which should be tackled with weight training. When it comes to losing fat and gaining muscle at the same time, training needs to be programmed smartly. Doing countless number of reps with baby weights is the dumbest thing you can do. That won't get you ‘cut'. Jumping on a high volume, high intensity training style is not a very good idea. Here, this workout is ideal if your aim is to cut fat and get shredded. Superset Training A superset is where you perform an exercise for a given number of reps and immediately after that, begin the next exercise. However, a lot of people make certain mistakes, which negates the benefits of superset training. Mistake 1: Supersetting only for high reps People have this misconception that superset training style should only be employed for high rep sets. False! Supersets can be used for low rep training (3-6 Reps) as well. In Fact, it is advantageous to do them with heavy loads and low reps. (more on that below) Mistake 2: Taking too much rest The whole idea of doing supersets is to increase the density (pushing more loads in a shorter period of time) and efficiency of your workouts. Taking too much rest between exercises sabotages this. Perform one exercise, take control of your breath, and bang, kill the next set! 15-30 seconds of rest is enough. Mistake 3: Targeting same muscles in both the sets This is perhaps the biggest mistake while doing supersets. For example: hitting pec deck flys right after doing bench press. By doing this, you're targeting a pre-fatigued muscle (your pecs are already exhausted after the bench press). Thus, you compromise on the loads you can lift. Also, you're unable to take the advantage of something called as ‘active recovery'. How To Do Superset Training To take the maximum advantage of supersets, train antagonist muscle pairs. Antagonist muscles often occur in pairs, called antagonistic pairs. As one muscle contracts, the other relaxes. Examples of antagonistic pairs: ● Biceps and triceps; to contract - the triceps relaxes while the biceps contracts to lift the arm during a curl. ● Chest & Lats ● Shoulders (overhead pressing) & Middle Back (horizontal pulling) Training antagonist muscle pairs together, allow you to undergo active recovery: while you perform an exercise for one muscle group the other one recovers. This also optimizes your fatigue levels, thus you can push more weights in each exercise. Make sure your rest periods are kept in check. (Arnold Schwarzenegger was one of the biggest advocates of super-set training style.) Superset ‘Antagonist Muscle Pairing' Upper Body Workout 1) Flat Bench Press & Weighted Pull Ups: 3 Sets 5-6 Reps 2) Arnold Press & Barbell Rows: 3 Sets 10 Reps 3) Incline Dumbbell Press & Face Pulls: 3 Sets 12 Reps 4) Cable Curls (12-14 Reps), Triceps Extensions (12-14 reps) Dumbbell Lateral Raise (30 Reps): 3 Sets 5) Band Pull A parts: 1 Set 100 Reps (The above program is designed by- Coach Aman, Alpharaj)
  13. Note- This article addresses the basic leakages in the lifestyle of nightshift workers. These leakages are primarily- sleep cycle disturbance, eating irregularity and lack of physical activity. Classic advice- Why don't you eat healthy & burst your ass in the gym. Classic answer- My shift doesn't allow me to do anything. Welcome to the new age. People now work at nights and sleep during the day. From call centre employees to IT brain bags, almost everybody is pulling graveyard shifts. It's not entirely their fault. International working culture is like that. While the money coming in might be alluring, working night shifts spells doom on the body. If you are working night shifts and look like a bean bag instead of a human, this article is for you. Understand Why Sleeping On Time Is So Important The human body needs to relax and cool down when the sun goes down and spring back into action with daylight. That's called the circadian rhythm. Our ancestors travelled and hunted during the day and slept at night. That's built into out genetic structure. Working night shifts misaligns the body's natural circadian rhythm, which results in poor sleep. Both of these lead to chronic fatigue, eating disorders, worsening mood and insulin resistance. So, What The Hell Should I Do? Our goal will be to create an environment for the body that mimics day time working (that your body is programmed for by default) as much as possible. That's it. It may sound simple but it will take a serious commitment from your side. Step 1- Sort Out Your SLEEP Quality sleep is crucial for any person's health. Whether you're a pro athlete, a weekend warrior or a night shift worker, you need solid 6-8 hours of sleep to function optimally. Multiple studies have shown that people who don't get good sleep tend to overeat, which can result in obesity. To ensure you're active and alert during your working hours and immediately fall asleep after your night shift ends, here are certain things you can do – 1) Add additional lighting to your work station. 1 or 2 reading lamps facing your face are enough. If you can find lights with a slightly blue tint it's even better. 2) After your shift ends, avoid blue light (sunlight, led/fluorescent lights). Put sun-screens on your car windows, wear dark sunglasses as you leave for home and maintain a slightly dark environment at your place. Avoid using stimulating electronic gadgets like the PlayStation, mobile and laptops. If you really have to, run an app in the background that removes bright-blue light. · iPhone users- Turn night shift ON · Android users- download the Twilight app · Laptop/Desktops users- download f.lux app Bright blue light suppresses the body's normal melatonin production, which is the hormone that controls your sleep. Darkness stimulates it. Making these lighting adjustments will trick your mind into believing that it's day during your working hours and night, as your shift ends. Consequently, this will help you become more active and focused during your shifts, and create conditions for quality sleep after it ends. Step 2: NUTRITION Research has found that night shift workers consume more snacks throughout their shift which might be overshooting their overall caloric intake, causing excess fat deposition. This has also been my observation, working with night shift clients. It is best to structure your meals like a normal day worker with slight alterations. Here's how you can do it- 1) Breakfast: The meal you'll be consuming after your shift ends before sleeping. As opposed to the general norm, keep your breakfast light. As a heavy breakfast will not allow you to sleep immediately after consuming it. An easy digesting fruit like banana or mango with some liquid calories like milk, a protein shake or a mass gainer shake is a good choice. 2) Lunch: After you wake up. This meal can be relatively heavy. A good amount of carbohydrates combined with protein and fats should make up this meal. If you choose to workout, keep this meal as your pre-workout. 3) Evening Snack (optional): Low-calorie fruits like watermelons, sweet lime, oranges etc are good options for this time. If you like to consume tea, ensure you do not binge eat biscuits or other snacks along with it. 4) Dinner: Meal before leaving for work. This should be the heaviest meal of your day, fill it with a decent amount of complex carbohydrates, a good chunk of fibre along with protein and fats. The reason I'm suggesting this meal be the heaviest is that it needs to supply you with energy for the next 8-10 hours. It'll also make certain that you leave home feeling satiated and don't eat chips, chocolates, doughnuts and all the other packaged shit available at your office cafeteria. Snacking During Office Hours Dry fruit nuts are the ultimate snack options for office hours. Being calorie dense, it will give you sustainable energy to work and the high fibre content will satisfy your hunger pangs. Step 3: EXERCISING Working out 6 days a week in the gym like a bodybuilder might not be feasible for you but don't blame your shift for the lack of physical activity. Include weight training 2-3 days a week combined with light intensity activities like swimming, jogging, a game of badminton or even a brisk walk. The perfect time for you to exercise would be few hours before leaving for work. Endorphins and dopamine hormones released prior to exercising will make you feel more proactive. Additionally, the greatest thing you can do to shed those extra pounds is to walk and move a lot during your office hours. Always take the stairs and after every 30 minutes, stroll around and have a glass of water. This burns more calories than you can imagine. Step 4: SUPPLEMENTATION I always talk about supplements last because they're are secondary to exercise, sleep and a healthy diet. Mentioned below are the supplements recommended for night shift workers: 1) Melatonin- to manage body's melatonin and circadian rhythm. 2) Zinc & Magnesium Supplement- to maintain a deep sleep. (Kindly consult your physician before using these two.) 3) Vitamin D- as you barely get any sunlight exposure. 4) Protein Powders- To fulfil your protein intake, in case you can't do a lot of cooking. In part 2 of this article, I'll present a detailed diet plan for night shift workers. Till then, start applying these tips.
  14. MOSCOW: Two Russian warships and a submarine in the Mediterranean have fired missiles at Daesh targets in Syria, the defence ministry said Friday. It said that Turkish and Israeli military "were informed in a timely manner of the missile launches through communication channels," but it did not mention the United States. Russia has suspended its communication channel with the US on military operations in Syria after a US jet shot down a Syrian warplane on Sunday, with Moscow accusing Washington of failing to issue a warning. The defence ministry said that Russia´s Admiral Essen and Admiral Grigorovich warships and the Krasnodar submarine fired six Kalibr missiles at command centres and weapons stores in Syria´s Hama region. "As a result of the surprise mass missile strike, command points were destroyed and also large stores of weapons and ammunition of the IS terrorists in the area of Aqirbat in the Hama province," it said. The ministry added that Russian planes then carried out aerial strikes that "destroyed the remainder of the Daesh fighters and their facilities." The ministry released video footage of missiles being fired from underwater by the submarine and from the ships as well as aerial footage of the missiles striking two-storey buildings in what appeared to be semi-desert areas. The most recent such strikes from ships and submarines were announced by the ministry on May 31, aimed at targets around Palmyra. The defence ministry said Friday that Daesh fighters have been moving forces into Hama province this week under cover of night and using large buildings there as command points and weapons stores. It said the fighters were trying to move out from Raqqa towards Palmyra.
  15. ISLAMABAD: The National Institute of Health (NIH), Islamabad advised federal, provincial and district health facilities to monitor the anticipated seasonal public health threats and take all preventive measures in this regard. In its 39th Seasonal Awareness and Alert Letter for epidemic-prone infectious diseases in Pakistan, the NIH aims to alert all health authorities and professionals about potential outbreaks and epidemics. The letter stated that outbreak of various communicable diseases has a direct relationship with changes in temperature, said a press release. In the letter, NIH suggests that the federal, provincial and district health departments as well as other stakeholders need to take pre-emptive measures against communicable diseases, including CCHF, Chikungunya, Dengue Fever, Gastroenteritis, Malaria as well as vaccine preventable diseases like Measles, Typhoid Fever, Viral Hepatitis and Poliomyelitis. To facilitate all stakeholders, the requisite technical guidelines and awareness material along with the letter is available at the NIH website (www.nih.org.pk), the letter added.
  16. The second trailer of the Sridevi starrer ‘Mom'is out and this suspense-thriller just got more interesting. Sridevi is back with vengeance and she makes sure that all your eyes are on her. The latest trailer for the film professes, ‘Nobody knows what a mother is feeling'. This one minute video introduces us to a very brave and courageous side of Devki (Sridevi) who is ready to go to any length to save her daughter, Arya (Pakistani actress, Sajal Ali). However, just like the previous trailer, we still don't know that what exactly has happened to her daughter, which does really pique our curiosity. © YouTube It is well established that the film is about a fight is for a daughter who refuses to call Devki her mother and addresses her as ‘maám'. But Sridevi being a genuine mother will go out of her way to take revenge for her daughter, ruthlessly. The second trailer has all the potential to give you chills. The highlight of the video is the dialogue interaction between mysterious Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sridevi. Nothing much about Nawaz's role has been revealed but the film makers are cleverly using this character as an asset in all the promos. Akshaye Khanna makes a small appearance too. But it is Nawaz who definitely steals the show. © YouTube Brace yourself and get ready for some goosebumps. After watching the second trailer, it wouldn't be wrong to say that it is one of the best trailers we have seen in a while. In short, it looks like a film that gets made just once a year. Directed by Ravi Udyawar, the film is set to hit theatres on July 7.
  17. Just hearing the theme music of Super Mario Bros can send us into an instant state of nostalgia. Now imagine that game, but bigger, much bigger. Abhishek Singh, a developer from New York, used Microsoft's HoloLens headset to literally bring Super Mario Bros to life in New York's Central Park. It's actually really cool. © YouTube/Abhishek Singh Recreating the first level with this huge, life-sized version, Singh managed to get all the iconic features – from green pipes sticking out of the ground to hordes of angry-looking Goombas. The whole video is shot through the HoloLens only, and allows the player to stomp on goombas, jump to punch bricks and leap over obstacles. © YouTube/Abhishek Singh Since Singh was the only one able to see the Mario world, onlookers had no clue as to why this man is jumping over seemingly imaginary objects. That must have got him a lot of strange stares. Just like the original 2D version, the game begins by asking the player to choose between a ‘1 Player Game,' and a ‘2 Player Game.' After he made his selection, the objects seem to just pop right in front of him, including pixelated bushes, question mark blocks, and the famous green pipes. © YouTube/Abhishek Singh “I recreated the iconic first level, dressed up as Mario and then played it in Central Park (NYC),” Singh explains on YouTube. “This video was recorded entirely through the Hololens with no post production.” © YouTube/Abhishek Singh Unfortunately for all of us, he has no plans of making the game public due to copyright issues, but he might just release the code for others to try out.

  18. According to a report by Reuters, Samsung is planning to introduce a brand new Note series smartphone sometime in late August. It is rumoured that the Note 8 will have a similar design language as the Galaxy S8 and will be a little larger as the screen size would be around 6.2-inches. © YouTube According to previous leaks, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to have a dual-camera setup similar to the iPhone 7 Plus and the OnePlus 5 and will also offer top of the line specs to compete with their counterparts. © MensXP The Galaxy S8 was touted for having a beautiful screen that stretches across the entire front. The “Infinity Display” is expected to make a return for the Note 8 and could come with a glass front and back. The Note series of smartphones are one of the most successful and important products for Samsung. Considering the Galaxy Note 7 smartphones were recalled or never launched (like in India) due to a faulty battery, one can expect the next smartphone in line to make up for the debacle. © The Leaker Having said that, the South Korean company has brought back refurbished Note 7 models earlier this year in select countries. A recent leak by The Leaker, shows that a working Galaxy Note 8 unit looks identical to the Galaxy S8 from the front but has a vertical dual camera setup on the back. © The Leaker The Leaker also reports that Samsung has "developed advanced pressure-sensitive technology for its OLED displays so we can expect something like [the iPhone's] Force Touch in [the] Galaxy Note 8."

  20. Asteroid collisions are rare but they happen. And unlike most sci-fi movies of Hollywood, an asteroid will not always choose the United States of America as its target. It will not discriminate. And as per scientists, an asteroid collision is capable of destroying whole cities. Leading astrophysicist Alan Fitzsimmons of Queen's University Belfast in Northern Ireland has said that an asteroid collision is imminent in the future. He said the question is not whether it will happen or not but when it'll happen. © Thinkstock/Getty Images The statement comes ahead of Asteroid Day that falls on June 30. In the year 1908 on this day, an asteroid struck over Tunguska in Siberia and destroyed 2,000 square miles. Considering we have already overcrowded the earth and most cities are packed to the hilt, it's a no brainer how much damage as asteroid collision can cause. "Astronomers find Near-Earth Asteroids every day and most are harmless. But it is still possible the next Tunguska would take us by surprise, and although we are much better at finding larger asteroids, that does us no good if we are not prepared to do something about them," he said. © Youtube/Paramount Pictures "It is important to know that scientists and engineers have made great strides in detecting Near-Earth Asteroids and understanding the threat posed by them. Over 1,800 potentially hazardous objects have been discovered so far, but there are many more waiting to be found," Fitzsimmons said. The Asteroid Day event will involve a live stream from Luxembourg and experts (including astronauts) will answer questions on social media.

The hallmark of this operation is the pursuance of the National Action Plan (NAP).
  23. Ashlyn Coray is our ‘Hottie of The Week' and with that smoking body we're going Oi Vey! Those blonde locks, those smokey eyes....Sigh. Where do women like Ashyln Coray come from? We so want to know! Going wayyyy back with this #tbt 💘 (swipe for more) I was only 20 years old and I could eat whatever I wanted and never had to exercise. I remember people would always ask me for diet tips and my workout regimen and the truth is I had to make stuff up because I still had the metabolism of a teenager. It wasn't until after I turned 21 that everything came to a screeching halt and I actually had to put in serious work and dedication to keep up my appearance. That's when I realized how fortunate I had been and how much I took it for granted. If I could go back in time I would have started healthy eating and exercise habits very early on. I began obsessing over food and felt extremely guilty if I didn't workout every day which negatively affected my mental health. I would pass on social gatherings with my friends if I knew I'd be tempted by the food or the alcohol. I would miss out on normal stuff a 21 year old is supposed to do all because I knew I couldn't afford to not look a certain way for a photoshoot. Knowing that if I didn't look "perfect" that the internet wouldn't hesitate to destroy my self-esteem. I began to feel like no matter what I did It would never be enough. That kind of pressure is part of the reason why I stopped modeling two years later. Stay tuned for more (I swear the video is coming.

  24. Twenty years ago Bollywood created a film that made history. ‘Mr India' is one such film that got a cult status and it always manages to entertain you no matter when you watch it. The dialogue “Mogambo khush hua” and Sridevi's Hawa Hawaii performance are still remembered. Imagine if we could get a chance to watch its sequel! Wouldn't it be one of the greatest news B-town has to offer this year? © Narsimha Enterprises This Anil Kapoor and Sridevi film was based on the concept of invisibility. The concept attracted the viewers and they loved how the story was presented on screen. The film became the highest grossing picture then. And now they are all set to entertain the audience yet again and we just can't keep calm! As per media reports, the sequel to the film is in pipeline. Talks are going on and if everything goes as per the plan, soon Mr. India 2 will be all set to be shot. The latest sequel will also feature a new couple along with Anil and Sridevi. This isn't the first time that the talks of this 1987 film sequel are going on. However, this time Boney Kapoor has given a heads-up, clearing the air and confirming the news. © Narsimha Enterprises Talking to Pinkvilla, he said, "Yes Mr. India sequel is definitely on. However, I can't talk any more now or reveal any more details. We will make the official announcements after everything is worked out creatively." Sridevi at present is busy promoting her film ‘MOM' while Anil is gearing up for his film ‘Mubarakan'. © Narsimha Enterprises Well, Boney Kapoor just made our day and we are keeping our fingers crossed. Are you rooting for ‘Mr India' sequel as well?
  25. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'd know we are ruining our planet. Global warming is already beginning to cause ripples across the world. The permafrost layer at the poles is melting and threatening to introduce long-gone diseases and pathogens in the world. The modern way of life is generating too much of carbon emissions and unrecyclable trash. Celebrated theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has spelled out doom for the earth, and he's minced no words. Hawking has given humanity 100 years to pack its bags and move to another planet. He says the earth has over a 100 years more till we ruin it with climate change, epidemics and overburdening of resources. © Reuters Hawking's stern warning came before the release of Expedition New Earth, his new BBC documentary. It is interesting to note that last year, he had predicted a 1000 years for us to survive on Earth. Too much damage in a single year, we guess. © Reuters Hawking also criticised US president Donald Trump for his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. “Unlike Donald Trump, who may just have taken the most serious and wrong decision on climate this world has seen, I am arguing for the future of humanity and a long-term strategy to achieve this,” he said. © Wikimedia Commons Considering the fact that NASA discovered about 10 more habitable planets like earth in the Milky Way recently, Hawking's suggestion doesn't seem too bizarre. Scientists have already been eyeing Mars as a potential colony as it's the closest to earth and water has been found on it. But of course, the actual colonization of Mars is but a distant dream. The earth is dying under the weight of our careless lifestyle. Think about it before you toss that plastic cup into the bin after a single use.
