  1. Apple is developing new displays that would make its mobile devices “slimmer, brighter, and less power-hungry,” marking the first time for the company to design and develop the component in-house, according to a report from Bloomberg. In 2017, Apple launched its first OLED display sporting smartphone with the iPhone X. This display was manufactured by Samsung Display for Apple. But just like Apple is planning to go alone when it comes to internal components of the iPhone, it now looks like Apple wants to do the same with the display as well. © MensXP The report said Apple was making “a significant investment” in the development of MicroLED display. “MicroLED screens use different light-emitting compounds than the current OLED displays and promise to make future gadgets slimmer, brighter and less power-hungry,” it said. The technological challenges faced by the team in building the displays are so significant that Apple almost ditched the plan last year. But its ongoing efforts have now brought the displays to an “advanced stage” that have included the successful creation of an Apple Watch MicroLED prototype that could launch within “a few years". © Reuters The company has designed chips powering its mobile devices for several years. Its move into displays has the long-term potential to hurt a range of suppliers, from screen makers like Samsung, Japan Display, Sharp and LG to companies like Synaptics that produce chip-screen interfaces. © iFixit Codenamed T159, the project is being overseen by Lynn Youngs who has been an Apple veteran who helped develop the touch screens for the iPhone and the iPad and is now overlooking the iPhone and Apple Watch screen technology. The 62,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Santa Clara is “the first of its kind” for Apple, but is too small for any kind of mass production effort. Bloomberg speculates that the tech company could ultimately turn to other suppliers to produce the displays, but wants to keep its work out of the hands of partners until it's completely ready. Samsung currently dominates the supply of OLED displays for Apple's flagship iPhone X. It is believed that Apple will switch to OLED displays for all of its iPhone release in 2019. Source: Bloomberg
  2. WASHINGTON: The US government has said it firmly supports the territorial integrity of Pakistan and does not support Baloch insurgency or any group that threatens the country. Ambassador Alice Wells, the principal deputy assistant secretary, Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs at State Department, made the remarks during a talk titled ?Signs of Hope for Afghan Peace Talks? at on March 9 at the US Institute of Peace in Washington, DC. Alice Wells at the US Institute of Peace. Video: USIP "We firmly support Pakistan's territorial integrity," she said, adding that the message of the Trump administration is that any group or any terrorist group threatening any country in the region has to be opposed. The US, she said, has not yet seen "decisive or sustained changes" in Pakistan's behaviour and as a result, "we suspended our military assistance," she said. "But we are not walking away from Pakistan. This relationship is important to us and we're continuing our intensive dialogue through both our military and civilian channels to discuss how we can work together better," she said, adding that a day before Deputy Secretary John Sullivan and she met with Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua who was on a visit to the US. Pakistan has an important role to play in a peace process, and in stabilising Afghanistan, she said further US to continue withholding $255m military aid to Pakistan Pakistan's actions in support of South Asia strategy will ultimately determine the trajectory of relationship with US, including future security assistance: White House "We believe that Pakistan can help change and shape the calculus of the Taliban. We are engaged with Pakistan on how we can work together as well as address Pakistan's legitimate concerns through a negotiated process," she explained. "Pakistani officials have long expressed concerns ranging from border management to refugees to terrorism that emanates from ungoverned spaces in Afghanistan, and these are issues that need to be addressed during the course of a reconciliation process," Wells said. She claimed that senior officials of the US and Pakistan are engaged in an "intensive dialogue". "We have a calibrated our relationship with Pakistan in a very different way than other administrations. We've gone much further and underscored the importance and the centrality of this issue to our ability to expand relations with Pakistan," Wells said. The senior State Department official also referred to the recent US announcement of rewards for three leaders of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). US offers $5m reward for information on TTP chief Fazlullah US State Dept also offered rewards of $3 million each for info on Jamaat ul-Ahrar chief Abdul Wali and Lashkar-e-Islam chief Mangal Bagh "We oppose groups that are targeting Pakistan. Of course, we oppose groups that are targeting Afghanistan," she said while responding to a question. The US State Department said on Thursday it is offering a $5 million reward for information on Mullah Fazlullah, the Afghanistan-based TTP chief. The announcement came a day after Fazlullah's son was reportedly killed along with around two dozen others in a US drone strike in Afghanistan. It said in a statement that it also is offering rewards of $3 million each for information on Abdul Wali, the head of a TTP affiliate, and Mangal Bagh, the leader of a terrorist group accused of attacking NATO convoys.
  3. Working out or not, we all know that smoking is injurious to health. So I wouldn't go on saying why you need to stop. It's your choice. What I am going to talk about here is 'does smoking affect muscle gain'. Is it actually affecting your output in the gym? Let's decipher! There are following effects that smoking has on your body that impacts your workout. - It Increases Carbon Monoxide in Blood - It Increases Tar in Lungs - It makes you addicted to Nicotine Let's discuss the above three points and how do they impact your workout. © YouTube Carbon Monoxide When a smoker puffs a cigarette, he inhales carbon monoxide which is a poisonous gas. This Carbon Monoxide bonds with the hemoglobin molecule in the blood, to an extent that it replaces oxygen that's being carried in the blood. Now when this blood is carried in different parts of your body, it is carbon monoxide that's being carried along with oxygen. When ample oxygen supply is not available to the body cells and tissue, they cannot perform their functions optimally. Now when this insufficient supply of oxygen continues for a long time, body faces difficulty in performing its basic function like growth and repair of cell. Absorption of nutrients like protein which helps in repair of muscles also becomes difficult. Now as you would already know that to build muscles, you need good protein absorption. This does not happen due to smoking, thus smoking is going to be counterproductive for your goal of building muscles. Impact Of Tar Smoking cigarette causes Tar accumulation in your lungs. Almost seventy percent of the tar in every cigarette smoked is accumulated in your lungs. This accumulated tar limits the capacity of your lungs and it reduces the amount air you can breathe in. Tar also causes coughing, increase in mucus in the lungs which hinders their capacity to perform their function in the human body. Since you are not able to pull in enough air through your lungs during the workout, your muscles do not get enough supply of oxygen. This in turn leads to early exhaustion and weakness in the body. This is the reason that someone who smokes falls short of breathe easily in a workout as compared to someone who does not smoke at all. Smokers thus are unable to exercise with high intensity, limiting the number of reps performed and the amount of weight load lifted. © YouTube Effects Of Nicotine Nicotine is a stimulant that makes smoking an addiction. It hits your mind as soon as seven to eight seconds of smoking a cigarette. The effects of nicotine in body includes (but Not limited to) increase in heart rate, Increase in blood pressure, Constriction of small blood vessels on skin, poor metabolism, Poor testosterone Production etc. All of the above effects are totally counterproductive for bodybuilding. Now some of you might be thinking that increased heart rate would help in workout, Right? Well, let me explain this thing to you. To achieve a similar blood circulation as a non-smoker, a smoker's heart has to beat 30% more. Now since your is already working more than the normal heart, when you demand more from it during a workout, it will need more energy and hence you will get exhausted easily. This is the reason that a smoker always lags behind a non-smoker when it comes to bodybuilding. So the choice is yours guys!

  4. ISLAMABAD: Following the Senate elections and subsequent negotiations to nominate a chairman for the Upper House, Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday said he does not want Raza Rabbani to continue in the top post. When asked by the media, in a joint press conference with JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, that the PML-N has shown its willingness to support Rabbani, the PPP co-chairman smiled wryly and said, ?Thank you very much, I do not want that?. The two also announced to have held discussions on nominations for top Senate slots. ?We hope Fazl will always support us as he has done so in the past,? Zardari said. Fazl informed the media of his meeting earlier with PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and said he held a consultative session today, and some suggestions were presented. JUI-F sources informed Geo News the the PPP co-chairman has expressed his wish to get PPP senator Saleem Mandviwalla elected as chairman of the upper house. PML-N to support PPP if Rabbani nominated for Senate chairman PML-N?s allies in the Senate include JUI-F, PkMAP, NP, PML-F A consultative session, called to decide upon the nominee for the Senate chairman by PML-N and its allies, decided to support Raza Rabbani if the incumbent chairman's name is once again suggested by the Pakistan Peoples Party, sources informed Geo News. The session, chaired by deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, was also attended by Fazl and Hasil Khan Bizenjo among other leaders. Allied party leaders also agreed with Nawaz's suggestion during the meeting. However, according to sources, it was decided to contest any other nominee for the position if Rabbani was not nominated.
  5. Note: The article neither supports and nor condemns the use of anabolic steroids. It's completely a personal choice. For a rather young sport, bodybuilding has gone through sea of extreme changes in physical appearances, training philosophies, nutrition and of course, drug abuse. Why I choose to call it abuse and not use, is something I don't feel the need to elaborate on. Look at the size of any professional bodybuilder from the past 20 years and you'll figure it out. Of course, whey and protein didn't make them 150 kilos and dry as a desert. It's the supra-physiological dosages of anabolic hormones, over years on end. Before you roll your eyes and start a rant in the comments sections, I am not running down steroid use here. I am just trying to bust the bubble of the guys who SAY anabolic steroids are JUST add-ons and real deal is the hard work'. Well, not only is that extremely stupid but also, from a scientific standpoint, very unreasonable. How? I'll break it down for you. First Things First, Steroids Make Muscles Grow- Training Or Not. © Pixabay Shocked and ready to start a rant? Hold up, read this piece of research (http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJM199607043350101.) Here's a brief from the research: 1) A 100 week study was conducted on 43 men, between the ages of 19-40. All were trained to some or the other degree. 2) They were then split up into 4 groups- Group 1 – NO exercise. NO steroids. Group 2- NO exercise. Weekly injections of 600 mg Test E. Group 3- DID exercise. All natural. No Steroids. Group 4- DID exercise. Administered 600 mg of testosterone enanthate. 3) Their nutrition was adjusted accordingly and revised throughout the duration of the research. The workout groups (3rd and 4th) did the same workouts. 4) Results- Group 1- No changes. As expected Group 2- Gained 7 pounds (3.17 kilos) of muscle tissue. (SHOCKING?) Group 3- Gained about 4 pounds of muscle Group 4- Gained 13 pounds of muscle Got the drift? The group of guys who didn't exercise at all and took steroids made the gains. YES, even in the absence of weight training, these guys made significant muscular gains. In fact, they did better than the group of natural guys who trained without drug use. Of Course, It Still Takes Hard Work But Steroid Usage Changes Things At Almost Every Level © Pixabay Now, don't give me that 'we still need to move weights' lullaby. Of course you do. The thing is that the body reacts very differently to training while on gear and training naturally. Assisted guys recover better, lift heavier and can eat more, all because they have an abundance of the primary anabolic hormone testosterone in their body. Assisted guys can get away with almost twice as better results by training only half as much as the natural guys because of their elevated Muscle Protein Synthesis (MPS). They also get away with poor nutrition which natural lifters definitely can't get away with. Higher training volumes, loads and frequencies could also crush a natural lifter, while pinned guys can do more and more volume with heavier loads without having to worry about recovering. So there are a host of things that play into the equation. Motivation The biggest factor of being consistent at moving weights comes from progress. If you aren't making any progress, things tend to get de-motivating. This is especially true for natural lifters. Natural lifting requires years of dedication with training and nutrition and a small window for error. Natural bodybuilders can get fat while bulking and are at always a risk of losing muscle while cutting. Both of these things can be avoided by assisted guys since anabolic steroids do their job very well. Assisted guys, if they are training right and eating right, literally make progress on daily basis, which is highly unlikely in the case of natural lifters. The more you see yourself growing and shedding fat, the more you will be driven to work harder. So, in a way, even motivation comes easy for assisted guys. So please, if you are on gear, we aren't judging you. But please don't go around telling natural lifters that hard work is all that we do and steroids don't do much.
  6. KAHUTA: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Saturday that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government promoted the politics of serving the public in its five-year stint. Addressing party supporters in Kahuta after inaugurating the start of work on the dualisation, rehabilitation and improvement of the Rawalpindi-Kahuta road, Abbasi said they strengthened the economy without compromising on the country's sovereignty. During his address, the prime minister vowed to establish a university in Kahuta and promised that work on the varsity would start in three months. The premier also claimed to have ended gas and electricity shortage in the country. "We accepted the court verdict against Nawaz even though not a single citizen agrees with the judgment," he said, referring to the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif as prime minister last year.
  7. Elon Musk is a mysterious man. We've all seen him talk on stage and on TV but do we really know what he thinks about daily? His mind works in enigmatic and strange ways. From The Boring Company, to Tesla and now Space X, Musk is at the forefront of technology! But, what do we really know about his inner workings? © Reuters Even his father, Errol Musk, is not sure what his son is up to. He says, “As far as Elon is concerned, I worry, what now? What is there? I get worried that he is getting bored of sending stuff to NASA every week or two weeks. I mean this is becoming passé… He is one of those people and certainly was as a boy, if he suddenly decides it's not interesting anymore he just kind of drops it. I doubt he will though.” Could he abandon all that he has built if one day he grows bored of these toys? Is it that simple or is there some profound reason behind his chaos? Let's find out. © Reuters In the 2017 World Government Summit, Musk said, “… When I was a kid, I was wondering — kind of — what's the meaning of life? Like, why are we here? What's it all about? And I came to the conclusion that what really matters is trying to understand the right questions to ask. And, the more we can increase the scope and scale of human consciousness, the better we are able to ask these questions. And so, I think there are certain things that are necessary to ensure the future is good … and some of those things are — in the long term, are having long-term sustainable transport and sustainable energy generation. And to be a space-faring civilization, and for humanity to be out there among the stars, and to be a multi-planetary species.” He has earlier said, “In the case of Tesla, SpaceX, SolarCity, and PayPal … it really stemmed from when I was in college and trying to think: what would affect the future most likely in a positive way? So the three areas I was quite sure would be positive were sustainable energy, the internet, and making life multi-planetary.” “What I'm trying to ensure is that knowledge in a human context is still possible in the future. So it's sort of like—I'm more like the gardener, and then there are the flowers. If there's no garden, there are no flowers. I could try to be a flower in the garden, or I could try to make sure there is a garden. So I'm trying to make sure there is a garden, such that in the future, many Feynman's may bloom.” I think this is the question we all need to ask ourselves as well when we are deciding what we actually want to achieve in our lives. Why are we here? If you can answer that, then maybe it will become your constant drive. Try it.
  8. If Nawaz Sharif's past is being brought and shaken up, it is only justified that he does the same to others, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said Thursday night. Sanaullah was speaking to senior journalist and anchorperson Shahzeb Khanzada on Geo News' programme Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath. Court rulings can be criticised, he mentioned, adding that the judiciary's remarks can be responded to as well.
  9. What was your first thought when you got to know that Anushka Sharma would be starring in a movie called 'Pari'? Way before any posters or teasers were unveiled, most of us thought that it'll be yet another fairytale-like romance, because Anushka Sharma and bubbly roles go hand in hand. So when we saw the first poster, we were obviously taken aback. © Clean Slate Films It became clear that it was nowhere even close to being a 'fairytale'. But since nothing was revealed about the plot, we were all left to wonder what will Anushka's character be like? Unfortunately, for months, we were not given any answers. Anushka just kept on teasing us with different posters and 'screamers' (another word for teasers). Like this motion poster: Sweet dreams guys...... #HoliWithPari A post shared by AnushkaSharma1588 (@anushkasharma) on Jan 9, 2018 at 8:59am PST And then this teaser too: She will grow on you... #1MonthToPari @parambratachattopadhyay @officialcsfilms @kriarj @pooja_ent A post shared by AnushkaSharma1588 (@anushkasharma) on Feb 1, 2018 at 11:04pm PST Is the movie a horror film? Is it about abuse? Is she a ghost? What are you doing Anushka? We had so many questions. And finally, after what feels like a million years, the full trailer of the film is here and now we aren't sure how we feel about it. Before you assume that we mean it's bad and not worth watching, we would like to clarify something. What we mean is that the trailer is good, but maybe just not crazy good. Horror/Thrillers haven't exactly been Bollywood's strong suit and this seems like an excellent attempt to change the game. We see Anushka's character playing the damsel-in-distress who is scared for her life as a man is out to kill her. © Clean Slate Films But just as you start to sympathise with her, you realise that she might not be as innocent as she pretends to be. © Clean Slate Films Thereafter, Anushka might appear as the villain of the movie but of course, that is not the case either. We see ANOTHER Anushka towards the end and that is probably going to scare the daylights out of you. © Clean Slate Films Watch the trailer here: Although Bollywood has a long way to go in this genre, one thing is for sure: Anushka has changed the meaning of the word 'Pari' forever and we would never want to see one in real life. (If they exist that is). The film is set for Holi release, that is 2nd March 2018.
  10. Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif talking to media after appearing before the accountability court on January 30 - APP ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not appear before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to record his statement on Saturday. Nawaz had been summoned by NAB Rawalpindi for supplementary references in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investments Ltd cases. According to sources, the NAB Rawalpindi Office is preparing supplementary references in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investment Ltd cases against the Sharifs. The supplementary references are likely to be filed next week in the accountability court hearing the ongoing cases against the former premier. The sources said that the NAB has received the transcript of an interview of Hussain Nawaz Sharif with Hamid Mir in Geo News programme ?Capital Talk?. The NAB reportedly approached the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) to get the recording of the interview but PEMRA responded that it does not keep records of programmes beyond 90 days. Corruption hearing against Nawaz, family adjourned after counsel's no-show Former PM, daughter Maryam and son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar accused in three corruption references filed by NAB in light of Supreme Court's July 28 Panama Papers case judgment According to the sources, the NAB has decided to keep the interview of Hussain Nawaz Sharif as a record in the supplementary references. The NAB filed three corruption references against the Sharif family in September last year in light of the Supreme Court's July 28 verdict in the Panama Papers case. The references pertain to the Al-Azizia Steel Mills, offshore companies including Flagship Investment Ltd, and Avenfield properties of London.
  11. Putin has claimed that the internet is a "special project of the CIA" and "half pornography"-Reuters MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday that he still does not have a smartphone, after revealing last year that he has no interest in joining any social media networks. At a meeting with scientists and academics, Putin made the admission in response to a speech by Mikhail Kovalchuk, head of the Kurchatov nuclear research institute, while travelling in Siberia ahead of March 18 polls in which he is seeking a fourth term in the Kremlin. "You said that everyone has smartphones. But I don´t have a smartphone," Putin said, to laughter in the audience. He responded to a comment from Kovalchuk that "everyone has a smartphone in their pocket." The 65-year-old grandfather has previously admitted to technological cluelessness -- saying in 2005 that he did not have a mobile phone at all -- and voiced fears over content available online. Last year while meeting schoolchildren, Putin told them he barely uses the internet, after being asked if he looked at Instagram or other social networks in his spare moments. "I personally practically don´t use this," Putin said of the internet, adding that members of his staff do get online. "My hard working day finishes so late, I´m not up to Instagram," he said. Putin contrasts with 52-year-old Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, who is often seen with an iPhone and other gadgets and puts up his own snapshots on his official Instagram page. In past years, Putin has claimed that the internet is a "special project of the CIA" and "half pornography". Since his return to the Kremlin in 2012, Putin has overseen a harsh crackdown on internet freedoms, bringing in laws to allow sites with allegedly extremist content to be blocked without a court order and prosecuting a growing number of people for posting online. Russia sentenced 43 people to jail over online posts last year, a rights group said Monday. The internet remains one of the country´s few forums for political debate and Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has won a youth following with live video blogs and YouTube videos.
  12. This was supposed to happen sooner or later. I predicted a few weeks ago that “The Man” will eventually regulate or altogether ban cryptocurrency and as of today, it is banned in India. Finance minister Arjun Jaitley stated in his budget speech today that the government will do everything in its power to discontinue the use of bitcoin in India. It is not only limited to bitcoin and Jaitley has extended the ban to every virtual currency there is. © BCCL He said that India does not recognise the virtual currency as a legal tender and will instead encourage the use of blockchain technology for payment systems. “The government does not recognise cryptocurrency as legal tender or coin and will take all measures to eliminate the use of these crypto assets in financing illegitimate activities or as part of the payments system,” Jaitley said. © YouTube Cryptocurrency was widely popular in India as one in every 10 bitcoin transaction in the world takes place in India. Ever since Bitcoin became a popular investment option, the Reserve bank of India has expressed their reluctance towards cryptocurrency. Last year the RBI stated “There is a real and heightened risk of investment bubble of the type seen in Ponzi schemes which can result in sudden and prolonged crash exposing investors, especially retail consumers losing their hard-earned money,” the ministry had said. “Consumers need to be alert and extremely cautious to avoid getting trapped in such Ponzi schemes.” © YouTube Other countries have also expressed discomfort towards the virtual currency recently and China has already widened its crackdown on cryptocurrency trading. According to Economic Times“RBI's cryptocurrency could be a part of creating its own Blockchain, a distributed digital ledger and technology that supports cryptocurrencies. State Bank of India has taken the lead in bringing lenders and tech companies together into Blockchain technology to share information among banks which will eventually help prevent frauds and tackle bad loans which are almost one-fifth of banks' loan books. The SBI's initiative christened Bankchain, is in partnership with IBM, Microsoft, Skylark, KPMG and 10 commercial banks. Source: Economic Times
  13. We've busted many myths about female sexuality and the misconceptions men carry in their heads regarding women and their needs. We thought it's time again to do you guys another solid and bust yet another myth. Well, it's not so much of a myth as it is perception and we figured the best way to get to the bottom of the barrel is to ask women themselves. Most men, on an average, want to really know what women think is the ideal ***** size. When I put this question forth to a bunch of women, they nonchalantly stated, "what difference does it make, they're not gonna change their size". Maybe men can't change their ***** size (unless enhancements are up their alley), but they can definitely change their technique, so size actually doesn't matter and we don't mean just small ***** size here. Most women face issues with big penises too. © Thinkstock/Getty Images In a poll carried out recently, the tally revealed that women preferred a small to average ***** size in men they see themselves long term with, since reaching orgasm was comfortable and possible with an average sized *****. It was also revealed that women preferred a big ***** during a one night stand to stimulate nerve endings in their vagina, instead of making an orgasm their ultimate goal. So, to end this eternal confusion, we asked 20 women to reveal what their ideal ***** size is and if size mattered more than the technique and this is what they had to say (results in the end). Sanya, 27 I mean it can't be a Cheetos chip but no, size doesn't really matter unless it's a really big di*k. That scares me but if the guy makes me comfortable, then it's all cool. Sanjana, 28 (name changed) Yes, size matters. There's no skill without a tool and even the best of tools are useless without skill. I met a guy who sprung up with his 7.5 inches. I wanted to run. Because there is only so much your body can take. Besides, he was kind of behaving like an ogre, if you know what I mean. The I also met one with a 5 inch one (I think) he got the skill right but I think there was room for more. So, the length and girth. Possibly girth more than length. How they wield it is also important. But yes, size matters. Not much you can do with an earthworm and a fist-ish will most definitely destroy you. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Ritika, 30 It actually depends on a lot of factors. I am short person, so for me a big ***** is a little difficult. I mean not because it has problems finding its way but it hurts in the, "you're hurting my stomach kinda way". If it's too small, it gets lost in my pubes. So I prefer an average size that gets the 'job' done. Gia, 32 My ex had a small one but his girth was just about right. It was thick. So even though his ***** didn't extend more than 5 inches (when it was hard), the girth made it possible for me to climax. Plus he had these moves that compensated for his size. Small penises aren't bad at all if the man knows how to use it. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Garima, 30 (name changed) Both actually. but technique more than size. If you don't know how to make love to a woman, you will not make her orgasm even with the biggest dick in the world. Having said that, even the most skilled lover might fall short of pleasing their woman, if they are too small. Most women do not orgasm from penetration, proving technique (foreplay and much more) is more important than size. Also, if size was more important than technique, ***** enhancement procedures and condoms would have been more popular than articles telling men how to make women orgasm. Preeti, 36 One guy was just too big for me. That's the day I realised big penises mean shit, actually. He probably didn't know what to do with it himself and he kept ramming me like hitting the bottom of a sauce bottle, to get it to come out. I could feel his whole body inside me. Size does matter and big penises are hard to figure! I prefer average and technique. Vrinda, 30 (name changed) I have had a range of sizes and in my experience, skill compensates for the lack of size, any day. Also, size or no size, the quality of *** or what a guy does with a woman in the sack depends largely on what he feels for her or how generous or selfish he is in bed. Big di*k's, small di*k's: orgasms have more to do with the effort men make to get their ladies off sometimes, instead of just the length and girth of their little man. Nandini, 25 This one guy I was with kept showing his big ***** off. His words "look at this big di*k. does it turn you on"? And it really didn't turn me on because he kept showing off. It was like all talk and no action. He wasn't good in bed at all. So no, ***** size has nothing to do with how good or bad the *** is. Maampi 24 (name changed) I think both size and technique matter because there are some women who like crazy fetishes and want their guys to give them complete pleasure in bed. So if you look at it, technique is equally important and foreplay is a must. Eventually, of course size does matter. Aashna, 33 This guy's ***** was actually the size of a chap stick. I couldn't even feel him inside me! It was bad. I feel bad saying this because he's a nice guy and he tried real hard but I prefer a big one I guess. Pratichi, 26 I think men with big dicks are way more confident and you can see that confidence ooze out while in bed with them. So even if you don't climax, they give you a good time. Megha, 33 For me it's not about size. If a man can give me some good loving, I absolutely have no qualms about how big or small his ***** is. Also FYI, a ***** is not the only way to make a girl cum! Tamanna, 28 I don't want a thumb for a ***** size! Other than that size, any other is just about fine. Mainika, 24 I have no issues with size. I just don't want to see a bent *****! Yes, they exist and it freaks me out. Other than that, if the man is big or small really doesn't matter. All that matters is how he uses his tool. Ragini, 30 (name changed) Size, definitely. There's no such thing as bad ***, actually, except when there's no sensation. Which is what happens if it's too small. You don't even feel it. What's the point in that? But, if the guy well-endowed, then he doesn't need to work very hard, and neither do you. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Apeksha, 38 In my experience with men, I've come to realise size is not too important. I have been with a lot of men, with different shapes and sizes. If the ***** is too big, it barely does the work but still satiates you. If it's too small, the guy compensates that with his extraordinary moves. So size really isn't the question as much as technique is. Guys really shouldn't be insecure with their size. If they tank in bed because of bad technique, that's something of concern. Malini, 30 I have a petite frame and I think guys with big di*ks are overrated. Average vagina's are only 3-4 inches deep, so if a big ***** man penetrates that, he can only come halfway through. It's quite a waste. Besides, it becomes quite painful to take in a big ***** for someone as petite as me. My vote is for an average sized *****, any day! © Thinkstock/Getty Images Malvika, 29 (name changed) Although, a vagina can expand almost 200% of its average depth, a mighty huge ***** can't reach the clit properly for an orgasm. Average sized penises usually find their way hassle free. A big ***** might be good to look at and a great ego boost for a man but they fall short to make ends meet, if you know what I mean. I have been with men who've sprung out their 5 inch di*ks at me and have used them very well! Richa, 27 (name changed) Technique for me, always. Size doesn't matter! Priya, 25 As long as I don't have to ask if it's in, I am happy! Naintara,32 When I think about the good *** I have had and the bad *** I have had, the two experiences have no correlation with ***** sizes, whatsoever! So I'd say, size doesn't matter! © Thinkstock/Getty Images Results: Size does not matter as much as technique does: 7 I like big penises: 6 Average sized ***** does the trick: 5 I am okay with a small sized *****: 2 So, in this expansive study, men will be relieved to know that most women would rather go for technique and stamina to reach climax rather than the size of a man's *****. Some women may like big penises but if we're talking about size, your average Indian male, with an average sized *****, wins the lucky draw! Next time, if you're planning on buying a big car to compensate for the lack of a big *****, maybe, just maybe think about bettering your technique in bed instead?
  14. LAHORE: Pakistan People?s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto said on Saturday that if the government did not complete its tenure then the onus of the failure will be on the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). The PPP scion was addressing media in Lahore, where he said that the party has carried out numerous development projects in Sindh and the media should highlight the same. Referring to the political situation in Balochistan, the PPP chairman said that the political situation in the province was worsening. Responding to allegations that the PPP is involved in disrupting the political process in the province, Bilawal said there is not a single MPA of the party in the province's legislature. ?How can I play any negative part then?? he said. On the subject of PTI Chairman Imran Khan?s alleged third marriage, Bilawal said that it is the Imran?s personal matter. ?If Imran Khan has married then congratulations to him,? said the PPP chairman. According to The News, the PTI chairman inaugurated 2018 by tying the knot on the night of January 1 in Lahore and reached from there the next day to appear before the anti-terrorism court in Islamabad which granted him bail. Democracy present, but needs strengthening: Bilawal The PPP chairperson addresses event on Zulfikar Ali Bhutto?s birthday On Jan 5, addressing an event on the birthday of PPP founder, Bilawal said that though democracy is present in Pakistan, it needs to be strengthened. About the next general elections, Bilawal said the time was approaching and added the PPP would contest the 2018 elections with its might.
  15. CDU's Wolfgang Schaeuble ? the president of the German lower house of Parliament Bundestag ? is seen during a session in Berlin, Germany, November 21, 2017. REUTERS/Axel Schmidt/Files BERLIN: Former German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble urged Chancellor Angela Merkel?s conservatives and Social Democrats on Saturday to quickly form a new government, but said he could not rule out a minority government if no deal is reached. Germany?s constitution does not favour a minority government but that remains an option, Schaeuble ? a leading conservative who is now president of the Bundestag (lower house of the German Parliament) ? told Berlin?s Tagesspiegel newspaper. A deal between Merkel?s conservative camp (Union) and the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) is her best chance of securing a fourth term in office. But Merkel?s possible coalition partners are angling for concessions beforehand. ?A stable alliance between the Union and the SPD would be preferable,? Schaeuble said, adding that the chancellor could still form a minority government. ?It would work one way or another,? he said when asked about that possibility. Coalition talks should be completed ?sooner rather than later?, he said, noting that the Bundestag was not fully capable of action until a government had been formed. He noted that President Frank-Walter Steinmeier ? who stepped in after Merkel?s talks with two smaller parties collapsed in November ? had urged conservatives and the SPD to reach an agreement as soon as possible, and said Merkel and other politicians had supported that call. Horst Seehofer ? the head of the CSU Bavarian sister party of Merkel?s conservatives ? told DPA news agency a new ?grand coalition? should be completed by Easter, which falls on April 1 in 2018. Seehofer said he favoured new elections over a minority government. Merkel's stature waning A new poll conducted for Die Welt newspaper showed waning support for Merkel, who has been unable to form a new government three months after national elections. Her talks on forming a three-way coalition with the environmentalist Greens and the pro-business Free Democrats fell apart in November. The poll showed that 46 percent wished Merkel would resign immediately as chancellor, with an additional 17 percent of those polled saying that she should quit if the coalition talks with the SPD also failed. A separate poll conducted for Bild am Sonntag newspaper showed that 33 percent of Germans trusted Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen to replace Merkel as leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), followed by Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere with 32 percent, if Merkel resigned. FDP leader Christian Lindner told Bild am Sonntag newspaper that Germany?s political system was in the middle of a major transition, and many conservatives also favoured a ?renewal?. Simone Peter, one of the co-leaders of the Greens, told the Funke newspaper chain she hoped a stable new government could be formed, and that the new elections should be ?the absolute last resort?. She said the Greens remained open to dialogue if Merkel?s talks with the SPD failed. SPD members on Saturday rejected a call by the CSU to raise military spending that could strain exploratory talks about a coalition that are due to start on January 7. A draft CSU resolution seen by Reuters on Friday called for military spending to reach NATO?s target of two percent of economic output and rejected the idea of an ?ever closer? European Union backed by SPD leader Martin Schulz. SPD deputy leader Ralf Stegner said on Twitter that his party was focused on spending for families, education, health care and education.
  16. RAWALPINDI: Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said on Thursday that ceasefire violations by India on the Line of Control (LoC) increased in 2017. ?52 civilians were martyred and 254 injured [in the 1,813 violations],? Maj Gen Ghafoor said during a briefing to the press. He added that India did not want Pakistan to succeed in the war against terrorism. DG ISPR said that Pakistan has deployed personnel along its border with Afghanistan with personnel presence approximately every 1.5-2 kilometres. Maj General Ghafoor added that the ?US needs to check anti-Pakistan role not only from inside Afghanistan but along the line of control and working boundary.? No compromise on honour Addressing the recent diktats being hurled towards Pakistan from the US, the DG ISPR responded with a clear statement that Pakistan will not compromise on its honour. ?What kind of friends or allies are we, that notices are being given, Pakistan cannot compromise on its honour,? he said, adding, ?when it comes to security of Pakistan we all are one.? He clarified that the Coalition Support Fund, received from the US, is reimbursement of money spent for operations in support of the coalition for regional peace. "Had we not supported, al-Qaeda would not have been defeated," the ISPR chief stated. The army spokesperson stated further that the "blame for inaction against [the] Haqqani Network might have been relevant owing to our capacity issues till Zarb-e-Azb". However, he added, the army went into North Waziristan indiscriminately and took action against the Haqqani Network as well. "It is the turn of Afghanistan and US to do more [rather than asking Pakistan to do so]," he added. Sharing terror incidents averted by intelligence agencies, the ISPR chief said 254 incidents were averted in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA, 177 in Balochistan, 28 in Sindh and 18 in Punjab. Moreover, sharing statistics, the DG ISPR said the army implemented 768 development and public sector projects. He added that 96 per cent of temporarily displaced persons have returned to their native areas in the tribal areas. Army chief's message: 'United we rise' Towards the end of the press conference, the army spokesperson shared a special message from Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa: As there is an established conglomeration of anti-Pakistan forces (state/non-state) attempting to destabilise and weaken Pakistan, we must continue to present a united front to defeat their nefarious designs.

Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri had earlier claimed that he can have Asif Ali Zardari and Imran Khan seated on either side, whenever he wished to do so. Speaking to media in Lahore, the PPP leader said the party would join Qadri's peaceful protest if invited. He added that it is Qadri's right to start a movement. Criticising deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Kaira said the former premier was using unpleasant language towards the judiciary and he fears such language may be used more commonly in the future. PPP's senior leader in Punjab also said that the democratic system in the country does not suit Nawaz and instead of supporting the system, the former premier is moving towards a clash o institutions. Kaira also praised the visit of Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa to the Senate and added that his helped in dispelling wrong perceptions. The statement by Qadri had come days after PTI and PPP chiefs held separate meetings with him in Lahore, and extended their support to him following the release of the Model Town inquiry report. "I would have Zardari and Imran seated on either side, whenever I wished so," Qadri had told the participants of a lawyers' convention organised by Awami Tehreek.
  18. Hollywood actor Will Smith, who was in Mumbai recently to promote his upcoming Netflix movie 'Bright', surprised his fans by unleashing his inner 'desi munda' by beatboxing and doing the bhangra like it's nobody's business. Smith needs no introduction. Even today, we can endlessly binge-watch movies like 'Men In Black', 'Hitch', 'Hancock', and 'The Pursuit of Happyness'. © Instagram People broke out in loud cheers the moment Smith started grooving and beatboxing on stage along with his co-stars Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace, director David Ayer and the hosts of the premiere Rannvijay Singha and Bani J. Thank You, Mumbai! #bright A post shared by Will Smith (@willsmith) on Dec 18, 2017 at 9:37am PST Smith plays a 'racist' African-American cop in the movie and while talking about his character and the movie 'Bright', he said “To me, this is a film all about Joel's character, who is an Orc. It is a society where Orcs are kind of looked down upon. But he dreams, and so it says that no matter who you are, you should dream. Nobody should tell you who you are nobody should define you.” Director David Ayer thanked Indian fans for this incredible response. #Mumbai @NetflixIndia What an incredible crowd thank you India! @BrightNetflix pic.twitter.com/Vu2VBASv6b — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) December 18, 2017 He further said, “I play an African-America cop, who is a racist against Orcs. So, the film is an interesting exploration about how we treat each other. Noomi plays an Elf, and in the film the elves are at the top in the society, so, they have it all. In our fantasy world, the humans are in the middle. “What we love about science-fiction is that you get to go in this fantasy world but you are dealing with real things. Because it is a fantasy world, you find it easier to digest it all than when we are talking about actual social issues,” he added. Thanks for justifying Will, because halfway through this we were kind of tripping over the plot. Here's the trailer of 'Bright' that will be releasing on December 22. Will Smith and India are like Rajma-Chawal, possibly one of the best combinations ever. While, we loved him flaunt his desi avatar and learning bhangra from Rannvijay and acing it like a pro; his love for India and Indian food is like a long distance relationship that is only growing stronger with time. Aint nothing like watching #WillSmith beatbox live. @netflix pic.twitter.com/rotgLGvlbD — High Street Phoenix (@gophoenixing) December 18, 2017 How can we forget the time, when he partied with Bollywood's 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar and we are sure Will remembers it too as he reminisced about his last visit to India. He reportedly said, “Last year, Akshay had a party and it was the best food that I have ever in my life. It was a little bit of everything. My favorite is chicken tikka masala.” © Twitter In fact, in an interview with Vogue, Smith said, “This is my third time to Mumbai and my fourth time in India. I should just move in with Akshay (Kumar). I was just talking about that. We had dinner at his place last time I was here, and it was literally the best food I've ever had. It just didn't feel right to call him and ask him to send food because I'm not gonna be able to stop by. One thing I love about India is the food at Akshay's, that's the absolute best.” We wonder what Akshay has to say about your plans to move in with him.
  19. The Pentagon is shown with the Air Force Memorial in the foreground in Arlington, Virginia, U.S., September 11, 2017. Photo: REUTERS WASHINGTON: The Pentagon acknowledged on Saturday that its long-secret UFO investigation program ended in 2012 when US defense officials shifted attention and funding to other priorities. But as to whether the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program has continued to investigate UFO sightings since its funding ended five years ago could rank as an unexplained phenomenon. The New York Times reported on Saturday that the hush-hush programme, tasked with investigating sightings of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, ran from 2007 to 2012 with $22 million in annual funding secretly tucked away in US Defense Department budgets worth hundreds of billions of dollars. Its initial funding came largely at the request of former Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat long known for his enthusiasm for space phenomena, the newspaper said. Yet according to its backers, the program remains in existence and officials continue to investigate UFO episodes brought to their attention by service members, the newspaper said. The Pentagon openly acknowledged the fate of the programme in response to a Reuters query. ?The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ended in the 2012 timeframe,? Pentagon spokeswoman Laura Ochoa said in an email. ?It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding and it was in the best interest of the DoD to make a change,? she said. But the Pentagon was less clear about whether the UFO programme continues to hover somewhere in the vast universe of the US defense establishment. ?The DoD takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets, and our mission and takes action whenever credible information is developed,? Ochoa said. What is less in doubt is former senator Reid?s enthusiasm for UFOs and his likely role in launching the Pentagon initiative to identify advanced aviation threats. ?If you?ve talked to Harry Reid for > 60 seconds then it?s the least surprising thing ever that he loves UFOs and got an earmark to study them,? former Reid spokeswoman Kristen Orthman said in a message on Twitter. Or as Reid himself said in a tweet that linked to the Times? story: ?The truth is out there. Seriously.?
  20. Foreign Office building in Islamabad, Pakistan. Photo: Geo News file ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Thursday said that Pakistan does not agree with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson?s recent statement about Pakistan. In a town hall meeting with the employees of the US State Department, Tillerson had said that he does not enjoy the task of dealing with countries like Pakistan and North Korea. "We do not agree with the comments and perception of Secretary Tillerson," Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted. He further said that Pakistan has undertaken largescale operations against terrorists and their safe havens across the length and breadth of the country with notable success. "These operations are being carried out in our own national interest and Pakistan is determined to rid its soil of the scourge of terrorism and extremism." Do not enjoy dealing with Pakistan: US Secretary of State Tillerson?s statement was made during a town hall meeting held with employees of the US State Department According to the US Secretary of State, relations with Pakistan which he termed an important and valued partner had drifted and had to be brought back to one of common interest. Tillerson visited Pakistan in October and held meetings with the country?s top political and military leadership. "Pakistan is important regionally to our joint goals of providing peace and security to the region and providing an opportunity for greater economic relationship," Tillerson was quoted as saying during his meeting with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi. The US Embassy, in a statement released, said the secretary of state reiterated President Trump?s message that Pakistan must increase its efforts to ?eradicate militants and terrorists operating within the country?. ?The Secretary outlined the United States? new South Asia Strategy and the vital role that Pakistan can play in working with the United States and others to facilitate a peace process in Afghanistan that can bring stability and security to the region,? said the statement from the US embassy. During the meeting, Tillerson also expressed appreciation for Pakistan?s sacrifices in the fight against terrorism. ?The Secretary also expressed his gratitude to the Government of Pakistan and the Pakistani Army for their cooperation in securing the release of the Boyle-Coleman family from captivity,? added the statement.
  21. JHANG: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif in an apparent warning to former president Asif Ali Zardari said on Saturday that if the National Accountability Bureau doesn?t hold the Pakistan People's Party co-chair accountable then people will. The CM Punjab was addressing the inauguration ceremony of a power plant in Jhang. ?The NAB should investigate not 56 but 56,000 institutions in Punjab and if they find even one penny of corruption against me then I am here,? said Shehbaz Sharif. The CM Punjab said that if Pakistan was to be in the future as per the vision of Jinnah and Allama Iqbal then all the stake holders will have to be on the same page. ?The politicians, judges, generals, bureaucrats and parliamentarians will have to be sit together and draft a new contract,? said Shehbaz. While mocking Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, Shehbaz Sharif said that the PTI chief is also surrounded by corrupt aides. Earlier today, the CM Punjab visited the Orange Line Metro Train project site to have an overview of the work, a day after the Supreme Court allowed the provincial government to continue construction work on the project. Shehbaz said that the project will provide people with improved transportation services and the delay will be compensated for by hard work and commitment. The chief minister added that the project was to be inaugurated on Dec 25 according to the original plan. When asked when the project would be operational, Shehbaz said he would inform of the date at a later date. On Friday while talking to media the chief minister blamed the PTI for the 22-month delay caused in the construction of the project. "The PTI had submitted an application to the Supreme Court. Then, as hidden enemies strike, they did the same in the Lahore High Court. The revenge they have taken is not from me. They have taken revenge from the poor people of the city," he said.

Shah said while addressing Pakistan Peoples Party?s (PPP) workers convention in Sindh?s Kashmore District. Lashing out at local political parties, the PPP leader said that it is unfortunate that 'a foundation of politics based on abusive language? has been laid in the country. Shah also addressed the plight of the masses and said that it was Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto who thought for the underprivileged people. ?Bhutto laid the foundation to give power to the masses,? he said, adding that his leader?s ideology was the nation?s ideology and his daughter, Benazir Bhutto, sacrificed her life for the cause. Govt does not exist anymore: Khursheed Shah 'A grand alliance is created each time elections are held' In an earlier address on Monday, Shah had come down hard on the ruling party, the Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz (PML-N), stating that the ?government does not exist anymore.? He had said that a grand alliance is created each time elections are held. Shah had also addressed the possibility of early elections, stating that PPP wants the general elections to be held on time and the government to complete its tenure. The ruling party, earlier on Monday, had attempted to approach the PPP in light of the delimitation bill that was to be presented in the Senate. According to a statement by Shah, PML-N had approached him through its ally Chief of Pakhtoonkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) Mehmood Khan Achakzai and requested for support on the delimitation bill. He had also said that his party does not believe in any 'undemocratic and unconstitutional' process. The Constitutional Amendment Bill, 2017 that pertains to the fresh delimitation of constituencies in line with the provisional results of the latest census in light of the general elections next year was expected to be taken up in the Senate today (Monday). The upper house of the Parliament has thrice tried to pass the bill but the absence of lawmakers, from both opposition and treasury benches, has delayed the bill's approval. A two-thirds majority is required by the house that comprises of 104 seats to pass the bill. According to the new delimitation, Punjab's seat share in the National Assembly will decrease by nine seats, while Islamabad will get one more seat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa five and Balochistan three more. Earlier, NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq had said after chairing a meeting of parliamentary parties that the total NA seats will remain 272 but there would be a change in the allocation of NA seats for the provinces. On November 13, the Council of Common Interests (CCI) approved delimitation of new constituencies on the basis of provisional results of Population Census 2017, paving a way for timely conduct of next general elections.

  24. LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari slammed political opponent Nawaz Sharif and said that the former prime minister doesn?t even understand the meaning of ideology. Bilawal was taking a jibe at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz?s claimed that Nawaz Sharif is not a person but an ideology. PPP chair pointed out that Nawaz is being opportunistic by changing his position and statements to favour himself. ?Mian Nawaz Sharif sahab doesn?t understand the meaning f ideology. You can change your position for your own purposes,? he said while speaking to media on Thursday. He went on to further criticise the PML-N head and said that Nawaz has been a part of all conspiracies against democracy in Pakistan. ?Mian Nawaz Sharif sahab is a threat to democracy.? Sharing plans of PPP, he remarked that the party is working hard to strengthen the country?s democracy. Fourth time's not the charm: Zardari refuses to meet Nawaz Sharif again Former president foils ex-prime minister?s attempt for the fourth time in three months Earlier in the day, sources informed Geo News that Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairperson and former president Asif Ali Zardari has, yet again, refused to meet former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, foiling the latter?s attempts for a meeting for the fourth time within three months. Zardari, rejecting once again the possibility of any contact with Nawaz, was quoted by sources as saying that the former prime minister ?only remembers democratic promises where his interests are concerned?. ?Nawaz Sharif is responsible for the current political situation of the country. Meeting him or shaking his hand is [out of the question],? the PPP co-chairperson remarked. Nawaz is name of ideology: Nawaz Sharif Addressing a rally on November 19, Nawaz remarked that his name represents an ideology that will bring about a revolutionary change in the country. "Those who talk about minus Nawaz Sharif, they don?t know today that Nawaz is the name of an ideology. All of you are this ideology. This ideology will bring a revolutionary change in the country." Nawaz is name of ideology for revolutionary change, says former PM The former premier says he is not scared of jail or death Addressing a public gathering at the Abbottabad college ground, the former premier said he has brought his review petition [in the Panama Papers case] to the people. "You have to decide my appeal. Give a decision that echoes far and wide." Maintaining that he is not scared of jail or death, he told the crowd, "You have to promise, we will march together towards our destination. Don?t sit at home, we will walk together and change Pakistan?s destiny."
  25. Apparently, the answer is 3. No, we're not talking about three pictures. We all remember Kim Kardashian's #BreakTheInternet photoshoot from back in 2014, right? Here's a reminder! A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Nov 11, 2014 at 6:13pm PST That post managed to get a total of 977,930 likes. But, it is nothing more than a footnote as far as the most liked posts on Instagram are concerned. Anyway, that's not what we're here to talk about. This is not a list of the most liked posts on Instagram. We repeat! This is not that kind of list! What this list is about is the hashtag 'Break The Internet.' Let's give you some context first! The photo above is from a Paper mag shoot. But, it's the one below is far more satisfying for the Indian man! A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on Mar 7, 2016 at 12:07am PST Now that we've got your attention, let us try to keep it. Bear with us, Nicki Minaj is coming up! The above post got 1.8 million likes on Instagram. That's an awful lot wouldn't you agree? All of that with a caption that's as simple as "When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL." Guess it's all about the picture, right? But (yes, we say but a lot), this article is not about Kim Kardashian. Even though she has 104 million followers, she lacks that "je ne sais quoi" that made her famous at one point. You want to know who the new Kim K is? Of course we're talking about Nicki Minaj! Just look at that booty! A post shared by Barbie® (@nickiminaj) on Nov 15, 2017 at 2:06pm PST That booty itself managed to get Nicki 896,000 likes. Again, that's nothing compared to the post we're talking about! The post that proved Nicki Minaj is the new owner of #BreakTheInternet. Yes, it did take three of her but still! Nicki surpassed the original and how! 977K? Check this out... A post shared by Barbie® (@nickiminaj) on Nov 14, 2017 at 6:07pm PST Over 2 million likes in just a little over a day. Nicki Minaj isn't just the undisputed owner of the #BreakTheInternet title, she is also in the running to become one of the most liked posts on Instagram. She may not be able to break Beyonce's record of 11 million for her pregnant picture but she's definitely going to break into the top 5. At least that's what it looks like! So, if your name is Taylor Swift or Selena Gomez, watch out, Nicki is coming for you! Before you go, here's one more for you! This one has a million likes already. Enjoy!
