  1. So guys, the word of the year has finally been announced and umm… it kind of makes us feel a little bad about our vocabulary and might do the same to you. We'll tell you why. When Oxford English Dictionary declares its 'Word of The Year', one would expect to have heard it at least once. And if not heard it from someone's mouth, maybe read it. Right? But when a word, that most of us have probably never even heard of in the entire year is given that title, we are bound to feel inadequate. Without further ado, we're gonna go ahead and tell you. Are you ready? The Word of the Year is *drumrolls* 'YOUTHQUAKE'. via GIPHY No, we haven't made a mistake. It isn't earthquake, it is indeed, Youthquake. YOUTHQUAKE is the Oxford Dictionaries #WordOfTheYear 2017. Find out more: — Oxford Dictionaries (@OxfordWords) December 14, 2017 If you have heard of it before, congratulations! We are proud. But if you haven't, join the club. Youthquake is defined by Oxford Dictionary as "a significant cultural, political, or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people." via GIPHY To make you feel a little worse, we should tell that the word actually dates all the way back to the 1960s after the editor of Vogue, Diana Vreeland made it up to describe how British youth were changing fashion and music around the world. And its relevance increased in 2017 during the UK general elections and the rise of young political engagement in the Labour Party. The word was chosen after careful consideration from among the few shortlisted ones. And guess what? Most of us have probably never heard of any of those either, except for one- Unicorn. The others were: 1. Antifa- a political protest movement comprising autonomous groups affiliated by their militant opposition to fascism and other forms of extreme right-wing ideology 2. Broflake- a man who is readily upset or offended by progressive attitudes that conflict with his more conventional or conservative views 3. Gorpcore- a style of dress incorporating utilitarian clothing of a type worn for outdoor activities 4. Kompromat- compromising information collected for use in blackmailing, discrediting, or manipulating someone, typically for political purposes 5. Milkshake Duck- a person or thing that initially inspires delight on social media but is soon revealed to have a distasteful or repugnant past 6. Newsjacking- the practice of taking advantage of current events or news stories in such a way as to promote or advertise one's product or brand 7. White fragility- discomfort and defensiveness on the part of a white person when confronted by information about racial inequality and injustice It's okay. Take a minute to absorb this information. via GIPHY On hearing this news, Twitterverse was obviously not very pleased. We know how that feels. Me pretending I know what a #youthquake is. — Amanda (@Pandamoanimum) December 15, 2017 Us right now! The Dictionary people: the word of 2017 is #youthquake! Everyone else: — Alex Davies (@alexanderdavies) December 15, 2017 True story! I run a charity for young people. This is not a word that I have ever heard used. Anywhere. By Anyone.#Youthquake — Ruth Ibegbuna (@MsIbegbuna) December 15, 2017 On a side note, it does. #youthquake sounds like a really unappetising pancake..... — Lucy (@0312bright) December 15, 2017 Still cannot absorb this. Oxford Dictionary: announces #youthquake as word of the year Everyone: — Liz Tyler (@LizTyler) December 15, 2017 Some people absolutely cannot accept this. No one in the history of the world has ever used the word #youthquake Not even the person who made the word up. It's not even a word. — Terri Lowe ð (@HelloTerriLowe) December 15, 2017 Indeed a better idea. Throwing a dictionary at a youthquake is a better idea... — Zach Ward (@UnrealZachWard) December 15, 2017 LMAO 'Youthquake' sounds the name of a dance group that gets knocked out of Britain's Got Talent in the first round. — cluedont (@cluedont) December 15, 2017 Oh well… I believe in Santa more than I believe in #youthquake as it's the first time I heard that word today and it's my job to know these things so... — Caroline O'Grady (@yo_grady) December 15, 2017 Here's the truth As a youth worker who frequently dabs and says 'sup everyone' I can confirm no youth ever use the word #youthquake ever. — Craig Bryant Ù‎ (@Bryanttie) December 15, 2017 Well, we are just disappointed that 'Milkshake Duck' lost to 'Youthquake'. At least, it sounds funny.
  2. It is highly unlikely that you haven't seen at least one of the movies from the 'Ocean's' trilogy and it is also highly unlikely that they didn't make it to your favorites list. Warner Bros Seventeen years ago, George Clooney along with ten of his very handsome friends took down three Vegas casinos in 'Ocean's 11' and we were all blown over. Now, we have an all-female cast all set to do something similar. And that all-female cast has got some of the most talented and beautiful actresses- Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. If this doesn't equal sheer epicness, we don't know what does. Sandra Bullock would play Debbie Ocean, the sister of George Clooney's Danny. After getting out of jail, she recruits the other seven women to help her pull off a jewellery heist at the annual Met Gala in New York. To give us a little sneak-peek, Warner Bros. released the first poster of the upcoming 'Ocean's 8' with the star-studded cast and it is slick AF. Clad in coats and stunning sunglasses, this poster has made us pretty sure about the fact that a gang of thieves has never looked this good. Have a look: Warner Bros The poster comes up with what might be the best tagline of the year- “Every con has its pros”. Simple and genius! If this still doesn't excite you, then here's more news. Reportedly, apart from the already brilliant line-up, the cast is also set to include Olivia Munn, Dakota Fanning, Richard Armitage, Katie Holmes, James Corden, Adriana Lima, Kim Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Anna Wintour. Phew! So what's better than seeing 8 gorgeous women pulling off a top-secret heist? Seeing so many gorgeous women coming together on screen. Also, the movie would feature Matt Damon, reprising his role as Linus Caldwell, with Carl Reiner also said to have a cameo as his Ocean's Eleven character. Twitter And quite expectedly, as soon as the poster came out, Twitter users went crazy. Seeing the Ocean's 8 poster got me excited and makes me believe that 2018 will be better than 2017 but then there's #NetNeutrality so.... ð¤·ð½ — Kluh â¡ð¥ (@bluesKLUH) December 15, 2017 THE OCEAN'S 8 CAST IS BEYOND INCREDIBLE !!!

Hears cast list. Second impression: Take my money now. — Kate Kompas (@mskatekompas) August 10, 2016 My reaction to the Ocean's 8 movie poster! Come on ladiessssssssss!!!!!!! — Wendy A (@WendyAnnia) December 14, 2017 While the exact release date of the movie has not yet been revealed, it'll be released across the world in the summer of 2018. We absolutely cannot wait to watch what this stunning group of thieves have in store for us!
  3. While a majority of us are always concerned about losing weight, there are people who are looking to put on a few kilos. Especially ectomorphs, have a difficult time gaining weight and muscle mass. After spending some time in the gym, they fall prey to 'desi' gym trainers who recommend them useless supplements like mass gainers. To gain weight, all you need is a well-structured diet with a few high-calorie foods. Below, are 4 food items that have high-calorie content and can easily be included in a structured diet plan to put on muscle mass. 1) Rice Easily accessible and can be prepared without any hassle, white rice is something that must show up on every eating plan. Rice takes only around 15 minutes to be cooked. One cup of cooked rice which is around 150 grams provides around 40 grams of carbs yielding around 180 calories. Such high percentage of carbs and high calories make rice a perfect food for anyone who wants to gain weight. You can add protein sources like chicken or eggs to make it chicken biryani or egg biryani which will make it a perfect meal for lunch or dinner. Nuts (And Nut Butter) Nuts are quite dense in calories and come in handy as anytime snack. You can carry them easily with you in a small container and they have a very long shelf life. The best part of nuts is that they provide you all the three macros i.e. Fats, Crabs and protein. Fats in nuts are the essential fats that your body needs to obtain from outside sources. Nuts can be added to smoothies and yoghurts as well. The only thing to keep in mind is that nut butter should be preferably free of artificial flavours and sugars. Starchy Vegetables and Carbs The quality of starchy vegetables is that they are calorie dense. The primary motive for anyone who is looking to gain weight is to increase the daily calorie intake. For this, you need to include as much calorie dense food as possible. Starchy vegetables like potatoes, sweet potatoes, beans, legumes, oats, corn etc are high in calories. You should include a combination of these items in your everyday meal plan. Cheese Since seventy percent of all the cheese is fat, cheese is a high-calorie food item. Another advantage of cheese is that it has good taste and can be added to a variety of dishes. Fat has 9 calories per gram which are more than one gram of carb and one gram of protein taken together. Therefore, including a small amount of cheese in your diet is a smart move if you want to increase your caloric intake. To gain weight, you don't need supplements. You need more calories from your food. Your primary target should be to increase your daily calorie intake and enter into a caloric surplus. Neither should you have a diet too high in protein. Concentrate on a moderate protein intake, moderate fat and high carb diet. Effort should be made to avoid carbs that are artificially flavoured and processed.

  4. By now we know that Akshay Kumar does not only have a good comic timing but can also play diverse roles. Roles that other actors probably could not even think of playing. And this year gave us the required proof. The fact that movies like 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' and 'Jolly LLB 2' were box office hits this year goes on to prove that the mindset of the audience is evolving and no more do we expect the lead actors of a movie to go and dance around a tree. In fact, we don't even want it as long as we have stars like Akshay doing films with some fantastic storylines which do a great job of entertaining and informing. And another movie with the same aim is almost here. 'PadMan' has been making it to the headlines for all the right reasons. The actor has been making sure that he teases the hell out of us by posting snippets and posters of the movie, since the last few weeks now. Launching tomorrow...PADMAN IN TWO MONTHS @PadManTheFilm @radhika_apte @sonamakapoor @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) November 26, 2017 The REASON he became #PADMAN...find out on 26th January, 2018. @radhikaofficial @sonamakapoor @twinklerkhanna @SonyPicturesIn @kriarj #RBalki A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Nov 15, 2017 at 12:16am PST In fact, we have seen multiple posters of the film by now. Not all superheroes come with capes! Bringing you the true story of a real superhero, #Padman this Republic Day - 26th January, 2018! — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) October 29, 2017 Super hero hai yeh pagla, aa raha hai 26th January, 2018 ko : #PadMan! @PadManTheFilm @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) November 27, 2017 #PadManTalks : Mad only become famous!@PadManTheFilm @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) December 4, 2017 And honestly, we had enough. “When is the trailer coming out?” was the question everyone was asking and yesterday, Akshay finally answered it with yet another tweet. So here's the news you've been waiting for! Watch and don't forget to RETWEET to get the #PadManTrailer from Pad Man himself ð@PadManTheFilm @sonamakapoor @radhika_apte @mrsfunnybones @SonyPicsIndia @kriarj #RBalki — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) December 14, 2017 And much to our delight, the trailer is now here. FINALLY here and it has definitely exceeded our expectations. First things first, 'PadMan' is the world's first feature film that focuses on menstrual hygiene. The movie's storyline is based on Arunachalam Muruganantham, a rural welder from India who made consistent efforts to provide the women in his village including his wife, the access to high-quality yet affordable sanitary pads 20 years ago. The trailer takes on this rather serious issue in the most fun way possible. Akshay Kumar is at his goofy best and we have to say, the man has mastered the art of it. © Hope Productions His character only has one aim- to solve the stigma around menstruation and if that involves him giving sanitary napkins to his sister, then be it. With his character trying to speak in front of huge crowds in broken English, you can't help but love him even more. While we see more of him than the ladies, i.e. Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor, they do play very important roles in the movie. © Hope Productions Radhika plays the role of Akshay's character's wife who doesn't really understand her husband's ways of getting rid of the taboo that revolves the issue of menstrual hygiene. And Sonam on the other hand steps in when Akshay's character almost gives up and helps him improve his efforts and reach out to women. © Hope Productions Watch the trailer here: Interestingly, the movie is produced by Mrs Funnybones Movies aka Twinkle Khanna's production house. 'PadMan' releases in cinemas worldwide on the 26th January, 2018.
  5. People take part in a demonstration marking a 24-hour general strike against austerity in Athens, Greece, December 14, 2017. REUTERS ATHENS: Greeks walked off the job on Thursday in a nationwide strike protesting against austerity measures and reforms the leftist-led government has agreed with the country?s bailout lenders. Domestic flights and Athens transport were disrupted, ships remained docked for 24 hours and some public services were shut by the strike organized by Greece?s largest labor unions, private sector GSEE and its public sector counterpart ADEDY. The two unions have staged repeated strikes since the first bailout in 2010 but participation has been low in recent years due to inertia and austerity fatigue after three rescue packages and five snap elections in eight years. Around midday, about 10,000 striking workers, pensioners and students marched peacefully to parliament where lawmakers have been debating the 2018 budget. A vote on the draft is scheduled for next week. They chanted: ?Take your bailouts and get out of here.? Protesters held banners reading ?Shame on you!? and ?No more lies!?. Greece?s fiscal goals have been approved by its European Union lenders and the International Monetary Fund. Under its latest bailout review, the government has agreed to cut spending further, reduce pensions, complete an evaluation of public sector staff?s skills and qualifications and sell coal-fired power stations. It will also tighten the rules for unions to call a strike. ?Hands off unions!,? chanted some of the protesters. The state had adopted ?ruthless dead end policies which were strangling the Greek people?, GSEE said in a statement. Hundreds of thousands of Greeks have lost their jobs during the crisis and a deep recession induced by austerity. Pensioners have seen their income slashed by more than 30 percent. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras won power in 2015 on promises to end austerity but later signed up to a new 86 billion euro bailout that ends in August. He was re-elected on pledges to protect the poor and pensioners as well as workers? wages and rights. With his Syriza party?s popularity sliding in opinion polls, Tsipras, whose term ends in 2019, wants to attempt ?a clean exit? from the bailout, without additional financial aid from the lenders that usually comes with more conditions.
  6. Everyone, once in their lives, gets stuck in a *** slump or a dry spell which may lead to absolute clueless ness on how to end the phase. It could be because you just got out of a long term relationship and weren't really ready to hit the sack with another person or you just haven't had enough opportunity with women to have random *** here and there. Whatever it is, it's really nothing to panic about. A sexual dry spell can last for a year to a few months or even a few weeks. If you were regular at having *** and are experiencing a slump period, then even a week or two without it may seem unbearable and when you do get out of it, you may be a little confused about re-exploring your sexuality. Especially when you come out of a long term relationship where you've been having *** with just one person and want to come out of the slump stage. It's a tad difficult but definitely achievable. Here are a few ways you can get back in the game like you never left, to begin with! Get In Shape Exercising really helps release a lot of pent-up sexual energy. It's good to hit the gym or do some yoga to release held up testosterones in order to not rush your *** drive when the times comes. Plus exercising makes you a happier person, so you're not frustrated or grumpy due to the lack of ***. Exercising also makes you perform and last better in bed, if you haven't had *** in a while i.e. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Go On At Least 10 Dates Before Having *** Due to the dry spell, your expectations to have *** must have risen or lowered so it's wise to test the waters before diving in. Go on at least 10 dates with different women or the same to figure the aspirations you want to set for yourself and build that confidence you probably lost out on during your dry spell. You will probably know, through going on different dates, how to go about the game all over again and if you want to indulge in just casual *** or emotionally involving *** or both. Once you build that criteria, your ego and your self confidence will be boosted on its own. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Indulge in 'Quickies' Quickies don't necessarily lead to *** but they lead to sensual stimulation and increase in oxytocin levels. If you're having a dry spell while in a relationship it is best to indulge in short and intense cuddles or quickies that don't lead to *** but build anticipation and sexual self esteem. If you're just going out on dates to build that credibility again, making out sessions or quickies are a good way to get back to your active *** life. It also builds heaps of confidence to eventually go all the way. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Dial Down The Graphic Content While it's healthy to indulge in porn and give yourself a treat every now and then, it's actually counter productive if you're trying to nurse your *** life back to good health. Porn can get a bit addictive during a dry spell because all your sexual energy is channelled there and there are very little attempt is made at finding something real. Porn may satisfy a short term craving but it's the wrong form of nutrition if you're trying to break a pattern. Men who spend hours indulging in a digital fantasy may face social and sexual problems connecting with women altogether. We aren't saying stop watching porn altogether but if you wanna get out of that dry spell, log off for a bit and get real! (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Change Your Style Maybe it's time to change your style and your attitude and avoid fads. Keep it simple, keep it classic and create you own style that will organically attract women to you. Maybe you're still supporting a hairstyle that was big in the early 2000's or the clothes you wear were last seen on Clint Eastwood. A little change in style couldn't hurt really. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Try Out Online Dating There are 1000 different ways to meet women and you really need variety while coming out of a dry spell. If you're out from a long term relationship, it wouldn't be such a bad idea to embrace online dating and see the kinda women you want to test the waters with. You'll be surprised to know how many fish you actually come across! (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Be Prepared For Bedroom Malfunction(s) After a long sexual haul, there is a possibility you may not be able to perform in bed as per your expectation. Pre-mature ejaculation or even flaccidity is a very temporary symptom of a sexual dry spell. There will always be fears, anxieties and pressure that will be part and parcel of someone trying to break away from a dry spell. The trick is to not let them get to you and try and relax. The transition, although may take time, is quite smooth sans the nervousness. Just don't let the panic take you back to the slump! (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Apart from all these things you can try, you must remember a dry spell is part psychological as well. It's your brain going into sleep mode, getting comfortable with not fending for a basic cardinal need. Sooner or later, the lack of *** does affect you psychosomatically and if you realise it's affecting you in a negative way, you know how to avoid a dry spell now.
  7. Arena-packing anthem rockers Bon Jovi, soul legend Nina Simone and gritty English pub band Dire Straits on Wednesday won spots in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Photo: AFP file NEW YORK: Arena-packing anthem rockers Bon Jovi, soul legend Nina Simone and gritty English pub band Dire Straits on Wednesday won spots in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. New Wave pop songwriters The Cars, R&B-infused progressive rockers The Moody Blues and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the gospel inspiration for early rockers, rounded up spots in the 2018 class that will enter the shrine to rock culture. The Hall of Fame, which surveyed some 1,000 historians and music industry players to select the new inductees, will welcome the six artists in a gala concert on April 14 in its home base of Cleveland. Bon Jovi, the hard rockers from New Jersey led by namesake Jon Bon Jovi, came out on top in a survey that drew 6.8 million fans, whose preferences were taken into account to give an extra vote to five acts. With a string of quickly memorable hits such as "Livin? on a Prayer," "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Wanted Dead or Alive," Bon Jovi became kings in the 1980s, packing arenas on their exhaustive tours full of pyrotechnics. Unlike the hair metal bands that were their contemporaries, Bon Jovi preserved a family-friendly image, helping the band win a following in diverse corners of the world. Bon Jovi was notably the first Western rock group approved to tour the then Soviet Union when the communist system opened up under Mikhail Gorbachev?s glasnost reforms. Fans will watch closely to see if the Hall of Fame concert will see the band reunite with its longtime guitarist Richie Sambora, who quit in 2013 citing a desire for more personal time. Changing definition of rock Simone, who won induction on her first nomination, was widely considered one of the most influential singers of the 20th century who brought the sensibilities of classical music to gospel and jazz. Raised in segregated North Carolina, Simone became an passionate advocate for racial equality, with her best-known song perhaps the civil rights anthem "To Be Young, Gifted and Black." Simone died in self-exile in France in 2003. She has enjoyed renewed attention following a 2015 Netflix documentary, "What Happened, Miss Simone?" Simone?s induction comes as the Hall of Fame increasingly broadens its definition. It honoured rappers the last two years, describing rock ?n? roll as more attitude than a musical genre. Tharpe, who died in 1973, was chosen for her early influence on rock. With her confident stage presence and distortion on her guitar, Tharpe took gospel music to new audiences in the 1930s and 1940s, helping set the stage for rock ?n? roll after World War II. She was especially influential to Little Richard, the rock pioneer who was in the Hall of Fame?s first class in 1986, with Tharpe discovering the future star?s voice when he was selling soft drinks at her concert. Different takes on MTV era The induction will raise fans? hopes for a reunion of Dire Straits, who broke up in 1995. Led by Mark Knopfler, the group emerged from Britain?s so-called pub rock scene of the 1970s, which emphasized blues roots and no-frills musicianship in an era of angry punks and flamboyant glam bands. Dire Straits paradoxically won a following on newborn MTV with tracks such as "Money for Nothing," a muscular song, originally with a homophobic slur, from the point of view of working-class men who resent wealthy rockers seen on the music channel. In its citation, the Hall of Fame credited the London band with its revival of Americana, saying, "Dire Straits dragged rock kicking and screaming back to its gritty, country roots using beefy guitar licks and bluesy vocals." The Cars, led by Ric Ocasek, went in a different direction, bringing the quirky electronic effects of New Wave to classically structured pop songs, generating a string of hits such as "You Might Think," "Shake It Up," "Just What I Needed" and "Drive." The Moody Blues, who still tour regularly, started in R&B but shifted gears sharply with 1967?s concept album "Days of Future Passed." With its incorporation of classical music, the album helped create progressive rock, with its more ambitious structures. The Hall of Fame notably did not select Radiohead or Rage Against the Machine. They were nominated in their first year of eligibility, often a strong sign of success.
  8. Meet Darshan Yewalekar — Mr. D-Shave — the man who is responsible for some of the dopest Ranveer Singh hairstyles ever. So, for our #30Days30beards, we sat down with the man whose Boss-beard is possibly the best we've ever seen. And, once you get past his infectious smile, you get to meet the man who is changing India's grooming industry, one haircut at a time. What are you up to right now? Just finished working on the mammoth, 'Padmavati' where Ranveer is playing 'Allaudin Khilji'. It was possibly the most exciting project of my life, where we got to play with hair and build upon his boss-ass beard. How has it been collaborating with Ranveer on multiple projects—red carpet, magazine shoots, movies? How different is each process? It's been almost 4 years now working with Ranveer across all platforms — red carpet, magazine, movies etc. Each has their own pros and cons. We consider everything from the mood of the shoot to the clothes and sometimes the location as well. A red carpet event is often classic unless Ranveer decides to wear a bathrobe to it. Magazine editorials are usually experimental, creative and fun. Styling a movie is often a tricky proposition. It starts with understanding the character and spending time on research to create last-minute details that help enhance the look. Then you get to something called a Look Test where you creatively collaborate with the director to freeze the final look. Once we go on the floor, we have to make sure the hair is in continuity across the entire film, unless there's a drastic shift. How does Ranveer maintain his grown-up beard? The most critical part is the get the shape right and consistent because it helps support the character of the film. Trimming it regularly helps keep the beard in good shape. Let's talk about your beard now. How do you maintain your beard? It took me almost 2 years to get this luscious and fully-grown Boss-ass beard. All I can say that patience is key in the entire process. Also, I have discovered this amazing shampoo that keeps my beard healthy and shiny. During peak winter — when the weather is dry, I add a beard oil to my routine. Superstar hairstylist and our fave bearded dude @darshanyewalekar gave us a low-down on How he styles @ranveersingh's hair ðð A post shared by MENSXP (@mensxpofficial) on Dec 10, 2017 at 7:50am PST Tell us about your fave grooming products of 2017 I have discovered this amazing hair mousse called Totally Baked by TIGI to get volume and some hold on my hair. Best grooming on a celebrity? Kangana Ranaut (curly bob for 'Rangoon') Worst grooming on a celebrity? Everyone has a bad hair day. One celebrity you'd like to work with? Nawazuddin Siddiqui One celebrity you would like to give a makeover? Hrithik Roshan One actress, you'd like to give a haircut? Alia Bhatt One difference between working on a set and working in real life? A set is more in control and we have a chance to do a retake. In real life, it's more important to create a style that is easy for clients to maintain on a daily basis. Fave International celebrity haircut right now? Brad Pitt's Fade with messy bouffant and a grungy mustache with short goatee Wacky hair colours—yay or nay? It's subjective. I feel color should always compliment the haircut, skin tone and personality of a person.
  9. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addressing the OIC summit ISTANBUL: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday slammed Israel as a state defined by ?occupation? and ?terror? as he opened the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit on the US recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital. Leaders of the Muslim world are attending the OIC summit in Istanbul, looking to rally for a coordinated response to the US move on Jerusalem. "Israel is a state of occupation. Besides this, Israel is a state of terror," Erdogan told leaders from the OIC gathered for an emergency meeting in Istanbul. The Turkish president urged the world to recognise occupied East Jerusalem as the "capital of Palestine" in response to the recognition of the city by President Donald Trump as Israel's capital. "I am inviting the countries who value international law and fairness to recognise occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine," Erdogan said, adding that Muslim countries would "never give up" on this demand. ?Flagrant violation of international law? Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas in his address called the decision of US President Donald Trump a ?flagrant violation of international law?. According to the Palestinian President, the decision of Trump could be used by extremists to ?turn a political struggle into a religious one.? Abbas warned that there could be "no peace or stability" in the Middle East until Jerusalem is recognised as the capital of a Palestinian state. Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi arrived in Istanbul on Tuesday to attend the summit accompanied by Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif and Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif. This is a developing story and will be updated when further details are made available.
  10. Talk about two of the most popular and oldest political parties of the country -Congress and BJP and you'll have people indulging in heated discussions and debates within minutes. Every day we see members of both parties making remarks on the opposition. But recently, these remarks sparked a major debate across the country. The word 'neech' was used for PM Narendra Modi by one of the Congress members and it obviously did not go down well with the PM. During the ongoing Gujarat election campaign, Modi recalled all the insults that have been directed at him by Congress in a speech and it was accompanied by a number of tweets on the same issue. I have nothing to say on a 'wise' Congress leader calling me 'Neech'. This is the Congress mindset. They have their language and we have our work. People will answer them through the ballot box. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) December 7, 2017 Congress, including their topmost leaders have abused me in deplorable language. My poor background, my family, my low caste…they have spared nothing. I have nothing to say to them, my focus is India and 125 crore Indians. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) December 8, 2017 While BJP is talking about development and sharing our vision for Gujarat, Congress is busy abusing me. Latest to join the list is a young Congress leader who asks me who my parents are…I tell him and his party- my everything is India and 125 crore Indians. — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) December 9, 2017 He also asked, “Where is the decency in the language Congress leaders have used for me? What did I do to deserve this? Is it my crime that the people of India have reposed their faith in me?” © Facebook But what caught major attention was the big question in the above statement: 'What did I do to deserve this?' Although all of these are supposed to be rhetorical, an aam aadmi took it a little too seriously. Devdan Chaudhari, a common man just like the rest of us and an author, decided to give a long reply to PM's question in a Facebook post. And by long we mean 22 points long. Here's the list: 1. For destroying India's economy via Demonetisation and not taking responsibility for the damage it has done. 2. For destroying the traditional plural culture of our ancient land via organised polarisation - not just religious, but also regional, linguistic and cultural. 3. For destroying the profound teachings of Hinduism/ Sanatan Dharma by placing Savarkar's fascist Hindutva as Hinduism. 4. For continuing the charade of fake nationalism when your deeds and policies are only harming India. 5. For being a government - not of India - but of Hindutva forces, crony corporations and foreign vested interests - especially the Zionist global banking cartel. 6. For false promises and falsehoods which are being spread through multiple channels everyday. 7. For violating the principles of the Indian Constitution by introducing theocratic militant nationalism and anti-privacy/ anti-freedom Aadhaar. 8. For destroying the pillars of Democracy by de-fanging media and institutions - which are critical to offer any semblance of truth and justice. 9. For not listening to people and the diversity of voices - but to impose dictates via coercion and intimidation. 10. For being anti-intellectual and actively promoting the hatred of the learned and the educated. 11. For doing all the tricks in the book to curb dissent and freedom of expression. 12. For sinking all the human development indexes since 2014. 13. For waging a fake 'morality play 'of anti-corruption crusade when the real policies of the government point to the opposite direction. 14. For hiding from unscripted questions which the people want to ask you - no single press conference since you came to power. 15. For focussing on PR, publicity, events and propaganda, but not the real issues of the nation. 16. For ruining India's traditional 'non-aligned' foreign policy. 17. For instigating the ego - hate and greed - through your theatrical 'carrot and stick' speeches. 18. For surrounding yourself with sycophants who have no talent for governance. 19. For being obsessive about grandiose ideas/ misplaced priorities and failing to deliver. 20. For misunderstanding the meaning of 'development' by neglecting social justice. 21. For being pro-super-rich and putting the poor and the Middle class under the technocratic Neoliberal Economic policies which have hollowed out the West. 22. For raging a war against India via the toxic brew of Hindutva and Neoliberalism, and destroying the people's faith and trust upon the government. His Facebook post went viral garnering 3,000 likes and over 2,000 shares. Here's the original FB post: It isn't known whether this answer has caught the PM's attention or his team's but in case it does, we wonder how he'll respond.
  11. Princes William and Harry at the European premiere of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" in London LONDON: Princes William and Harry attended the European premiere of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" on Tuesday, joining the all-star cast in London for the latest instalment of the sci-fi saga. The British royals walked the red carpet dressed in tuxedos for the screening at London´s Royal Albert Hall, where they were greeted by the rolling droid character BB-8 who dutifully bowed to the princes. The two reportedly have cameo roles as stormtroopers in the film, after visiting the set in April 2016 when they were rumoured to have shot the scene. William and Harry -- who recently announced his engagement to US actress Meghan Markle -- also met the cast of "The Last Jedi" and were presented with stormtrooper helmets. Filmed at Pinewood Studios near London and on the west coast of Ireland, "The Last Jedi" is the eighth film in the space series and runs to a lengthy 153 minutes. Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the films, said the longevity of "Star Wars" had seen his character make way for new stars. "It´s like a bunch of kids rifling through my old toy box, playing with my toys... I love it!" he told AFP at the premiere. Despite 40 years passing since the intergalactic saga first hit cinemas, the cast members of Rian Johnson´s "Last Jedi" are convinced it still has contemporary relevance. "I think it really deals with issues the world is facing at the moment, about politics which splits people apart and the spark of hope which is going to bring people back together again," Andy Serkis, who stars as Supreme Leader Snoke, told AFP. Lupita Nyong´o, who plays the motion-captured character Maz Kanata, said the film was also important as a form of escapism. "I think the importance of fantasy is that it allows us to first of all, escape from the world we´re in for a second and it brings us all together and unifies us in a way, on a subject, in a way that other things don´t," she said. "And for a moment we get to forget our own worries and worry about the galaxy far, far away."
  12. Getting your hands on the iPhone X is a bit hard partly because it's either too expensive or the smartphone is not in stock. However, if you a fancy a smartphone that looks exactly like the “X” and would like to save money at the same time, this Android clone will do the job. Leagoo, a Chinese smartphone company that regularly copies design and concepts from flagship devices; has now come out with an iPhone X clone. The smartphone is called the “S9” and it has reduced bezels, the much talked about "notch" and a vertical dual camera setup. © Twitter_The Verge The company says that the S9 will cost only INR 20,000 and sports a MediaTek P40 processor. The SoC on the device is usually used in mid-tier smartphones and is a direct competitor to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 670. Apart from the SoC, the S9 has 6GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage and a 5.85-inch AMOLED screen. The vertical dual camera system houses a pair of 16-megapixel sensors as well. © Twitter_The Verge These images were sent out by the company to the Verge, and it clearly outlines the design, which is identical to the iPhone X. It has a glass back design and an aluminium casing just like the iPhone X. The only difference is the addition of the fingerprint sensor at the back which is reminiscent of the Pixel 2 design. Not many users are fans of copied devices, however, if you have the urge to own a smartphone that looks as good as the iPhone X and costs less than a kidney operation, you could go for this device.

  13. There are billions of Android phones and tablets out there, but only a vanishingly small number of them are running Google's latest Android release, Oreo. Google has released the Android platform distribution chart for the month of December to highlight where its mobile platform stands this year. Android Nougat has continued its upward trend and reached over 23 percent of active devices. Android Oreo, on the other hand, is now running on 0.5 percent of the total Android devices, a marginal increase from 0.2 percent the previous month. Further, the latest 8.1 build hasn't even hit the necessary 0.1 percent cutoff to be included. A major problem that causes this is the fact that most phone companies do not release the latest version of Android on their flagship devices. © Google Marshmallow is still captures the biggest chunk of all Android devices with 29.7 percent market share. It was launched over two years ago, so many of these devices are no longer getting security updates. Lollipop, which came out the year before that, is also larger than Nougat with 26.3 percent of active devices. Google's latest Pixel phones run the latest software, but otherwise, it's hard to come by. There has been a very few set of OEMs who have stood out and released the Oreo update immediately, like the HTC U11, Nokia 8 or Xperia XZ. In fact, even newer launches like the OnePlus 5T came out of the box with Nougat. OnePlus says they will be releasing the update in the first few months of 2018. © CNET Google is well aware of the sluggish growth of Android Oreo, and this is not the first time when the newest Android version has the lowest distribution share. To tackle this, Google has started initiatives like Project Treble and Android Go. The Go edition is aimed at providing stock Android experience on affordable mobile devices, whereas the Project Treble development is designed to deliver faster updates by allowing OEMs to seed new improvements and tweaks without a lot of effort. On the other hand, over 50% of all iOS devices have already been updated to iOS 11 less than two months after launch. Apple controls every element of the stack, right from software development to hardware sourcing. Android has a completely different setup, Google releases the latest software which is further tweaked by OEMs in terms of feature additions and design changes. Further, there are multiple component vendors involved like Qualcomm or MediaTek. Hence there are million possible hardware combinations running the same software, thus increasing complexity for running drivers and updates.

  20. It is very easy to sell stuff to people by guaranteeing them miracles. Like the ketogenic or the low-carb diet that has taken the nutrition world for a ride. People are promoting things like adding butter to coffee or not eating carbs as they are literally the reason we are on the verge of the third world war. On the other hand, IIFYM or 'Donut Dieting' is one such nutritional rabbit hole you can find yourself easily falling into. Here, let me give you a lowdown on the IIFYM diet. © Youtube Forget Instagram Models Eating Ice Creams and Burgers….. © Thinkstock Now, when I say it is a rabbit hole, I want to make it very clear that I, personally follow flexible dieting and my clients have a lot of liberty when it comes to eating out and enjoying the food they love. But, these IG models, surrounded by plates of ice-cream, Nutella and Snickers, trying to 'pretend' that despite eating all of this, they are still in ridiculously fantastic shape, is a major problem. You look at them and think this could work but are actually messing up your fat-loss goals. If you start practicing the EXACT same thing just because these models say so, you are will be ruined, period. Do Food Choices Matter? IIFYM Says It Doesn't! IIFYM suggests that you have daily macro/calorie targets and you hit that every day to get results. Food choices do not matter. At ALL! Maybe not for the amount of weight you lose. But it makes a whole lot of difference for your satiety and adherence to the diet. The people who actually track their macros know that this is not possible when you are eating absolute poverty macros. Or that these 'Instagram models' have been starving all day just to 'fit in' this dessert creation of theirs. If you have enough calories to consume and feel satiated throughout the day, then, by all means, fit in some junk food to hit your macros/calories. Following IIFYM? This Is What Your Plan Should And Should Not Look Like An example of what your plan should not and should look like if you plan to IIFYM: What it should NOT look like Target calories - 2000 kcals, 1 donut - 200 kcals. Total donuts I can eat - 10 donuts. What it COULD look like Target calories - 2000 kcals, 1 donut - 200 kcals. Let me eat 1800 kcals in the form of whole grains, dairy, poultry, nuts, fruits, veggies, etc. Am I feeling full and energetic? - Yes. I can have a donut to complete the 2000 kcals target. Keep Junk Food At a Minimum Keep junk food limited to about 10-20% of your daily calorie target. Make it an inclusive strategy where you INCLUDE the foods you like in moderation. Until you reach this point, do yourself a favor by saving it for later, or doing it a little less frequently. For all, beginning to eat just donuts because your favorite Instagrammer said so may leave you disappointed with your fat loss results. Be aware of such shams.

  25. A sculptor who produced the image of Queen Elizabeth used on Britain?s coins has been chosen to create a new statue of Princess Diana, the office of Princes William and Harry said on Sunday, to commemorate 20 years since her death. Ian Rank-Broadley, whose effigy of the Queen has appeared on all UK and Commonwealth coinage since 1998, will design the statue, which now will not be unveiled until next year. ?Ian is an extremely gifted sculptor and we know that he will create a fitting and lasting tribute to our mother,? Prince William and his younger brother Harry said in a statement. In January, the brothers commissioned a statue in honour of their mother, who died in a Paris car crash 20 years ago to be erected outside their official London home Kensington Palace. Diana, the first wife of the heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, was killed when the limousine carrying her and her lover Dodi al-Fayed crashed in a Paris tunnel in August 1997. William was 15 and Harry was 12 at the time. ?We have been touched by the kind words and memories so many people have shared about our mother over these past few months,? the brothers said. ?It is clear the significance of her work is still felt by many in the UK and across the world, even twenty years after her death.? It had been hoped that the statue would be unveiled before the end of the year to mark the anniversary, but Kensington Palace said that it was now envisaged that the statue would be unveiled in 2019. The first permanent memorial to her, a 210-metre (689-foot) long fountain was unveiled in Hyde Park in 2004 after years of bureaucratic wrangling and squabbling over the design.
