  1. There are days when you just don't feel like hitting the gym. But that certainly doesn't mean that you don't want to or shouldn't exercise. To get out of the regular rut, here are 4 bodyweight exercises that you can do at home. Be warned though, these are not easy to complete. 1. Plank Planks engage your abdominals, lats, glutes and deltoids when you balance yourself. The technique is quite simple. Place your arms on the floor, Palms facing downwards. Now focus the weight of your body onto your arms while framing a perpendicular angle at your elbow. Make sure that your spine is straight. Your body should be in a straight plane while you are in position. Hold the posture for at least 30 seconds to really feel that burn. 2. Side Plank The side plank is a variation of the exercise that we have discussed above. It focuses on your obliques along with abdominal muscles. From a front plank position, lift one hand in the air and tilt your body to one side. Now balance your whole body on the elbow which is on the floor. Keep your foot on top of the another so that your hips are off the ground. Hold the position for at least 30 seconds and try and add more time from there on out. It isn;t easy, but getting ripped isn't supposed to be easy. 3. Lunges Though it primarily focuses on your glutes it is a good exercise for your quads, hamstring and calves as well. Lunges can be done in various forms- like static lunges and walking lunges but the basic technique remains the same. Stand straight, take one step forward, while the other foot remains at the same spot. Bring your forward foot ahead so that the knee of the other leg touches the floor and the front shin is perpendicular to the floor. The front knee should be over your ankle and should not track over your foot. Now you can either do alternate lunges at the same spot or do walking lunges or backward lunges to create variety in your workouts. 4. Burpees If you want to do cardio at home, while also working on your agility, burpees are the exercise for you. Start with your feet underneath your hips, place your hands on the ground and jump your feet back to get into the pushup position. Perform a push-up with your whole body touching the ground. Then stand up and jump off the ground at a height of at least six inches. Perform this complete movement as one repetition. Perform maximum repetitions. This works your entire body, and trust me when I say that most high-level athletes swear by burpees.
  2. It's been some time since you made up your mind to hit the gym, right? But then it's either motivation that holds you back and sometimes other reasons, like your busy schedule. After all, you are not a bodybuilder who can spend all his time building his physique only. You are busy earning your living through a normal 9 to 5 job which sometimes goes on way beyond that. Ultimately, this becomes a reason for not working out. Some people have odd working hours and night shifts. When they have time to hit the gym, the gyms are not open. So what's the solution? Well, it's simple. If you can't go to the gym, build one at home. Here is the list of the basic equipment with which you can perform a full body workout. 1) Olympic Bar With Weights © Thinkstock This is the bar with which you perform exercises like a squat, deadlift, bench press, overhead press, clean and press etc. It can also be used to do other exercises as well. With the bar, you can purchase weighted plates that fit the bar well. Choose a strong bar if you are planning to use it for the long term. When you progress with heavier weights, you will need a heavy duty bar which can sustain the weight. 2) Dumbbell Bars With Plates © Alibaba In a gym, there are around twenty sets of dumbbells but you can't go ahead and purchase the same for your home gym. Buy two dumbbell bars on which the plates can be mounted and screws can be used to tighten it. With this, you can adjust the dumbbell weight as per your requirements. 3) Adjustable Bench © Rogue With an adjustable bench, you can add variety to your workouts. Bench pressing, chest flys, sedated dumbbell curls, incline curls can be done on a bench easily. You also have the option to use the incline and decline position to hit your chest with various angels. Another advantage is that it does not occupy too much of floor space. It's like any other bench in your house with the added advantage of shifting the inclination. That's all the equipment you need to workout at your place. So what are you waiting for?

  3. WASHINGTON: A raid on the Virginia home of President Donald Trump's former 2016 election campaign manager showed an investigation of possible ties between the campaign and Russia is intensifying and focused on the financial dealings of Trump associates, sources familiar with the probe said. Longtime political consultant and lobbyist Paul Manafort is being investigated for possible money laundering and has been targeted as someone who might testify against former colleagues, said two people familiar with the work of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Manafort's spokesman Jason Maloni confirmed on Wednesday that the FBI executed a search warrant at one of Manafort's homes. "Mr. Manafort has consistently cooperated with law enforcement and other serious inquiries and did so on this occasion as well," Maloni said in an email. Manafort's house in Alexandria, near Washington, was raided in the early morning of July 26, the Washington Post reported. The previous day Manafort had met with Senate Intelligence Committee staff, the Washington Post reported, citing unidentified people familiar with the probe. Tax documents and financial records were sought by agents for Mueller in the raid, the New York Times reported, citing a person familiar with the matter. Mueller's team is poring over Manafort's financial and real estate records in New York and his involvement in Ukrainian politics, the two sources told Reuters last month. Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal called the raid a "highly significant step" and said it was "typical of the most serious criminal investigations dealing with uncooperative or untrusted potential targets." The FBI did not immediately return a request for comment. Joshua Stueve, a spokesman for Mueller's office, declined to confirm the raid. Trump has been attacking Blumenthal on Twitter this week after the senator urged Mueller to press his inquiry forward. US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia interfered in the presidential race, in part by hacking and releasing emails embarrassing to Trump's opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton, to help him get elected in November. Trump has called Mueller's investigation a "witch hunt." Allegations of collusion between Trump associates and Moscow have hounded the Republican president since he took office in January, presenting a major distraction from his policy agenda. Russia has repeatedly denied meddling in the US election. FINANCES SCRUTINIZED The Manhattan District Attorney?s office has been trying to track money that Manafort used to buy properties in New York, and looking into millions of dollars of loans later taken out on the properties, according to a person familiar with the matter. The prosecutor issued a subpoena to Federal Savings Bank, a small Chicago bank founded by a former Trump campaign adviser, and is interested in the loan paperwork, the person said. It is unclear when the subpoena went out, but the first subpoenas in the probe went out months ago, the person said. Joan Vollero, a spokeswoman for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., declined to comment. Steve Calk, the bank?s chairman and CEO, who was named to Trump?s economic advisory council during the campaign, declined to comment through a spokeswoman for the bank. "Mr. Manafort's real estate loans are all arm's length transactions at or above market rates,? said Maloni. ?There is nothing unusual about buying real estate through an LLC." The New York Attorney General?s office also is looking into Manafort?s real estate transactions, another person said. 'PAPER TRAILS' One question for investigators was whether Manafort had knowledge of any Trump campaign dealings with Russia, including meetings with Russians with government ties, said one source familiar with Mueller's work. The same question was relevant to investigators in regard to Trump's fired former national security adviser, retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, the source said. "Financial matters have paper trails that can be easy to pick up and follow, so that's a logical place to start," the source added. Congressional committees are looking at a June 2016 meeting in New York with a Russian lawyer organized by Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. Trump Jr. released emails last month that showed he welcomed the prospect of receiving damaging information about Clinton. Manafort attended the meeting. Legal experts noted that the FBI had enough evidence to get approval for a search warrant concerning Manafort. "Somewhere, there now exists under seal what is likely a very detailed affidavit laying out criminal allegations involving Paul Manafort, and specifically, there is probable cause to believe he has committed a crime or there is evidence of a crime at his home," said Alex Little, a former federal prosecutor now with the law firm Bone McAllester Norton. A Senate Judiciary Committee aide said the panel has received more than 20,000 pages of documents from Trump's presidential campaign, Manafort and Trump Jr.
  4. Sindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal: File image KARACHI: Sindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal confirmed on Wednesday that as many as seven SHOs have been suspended for their failure to control crime in their respective police domains. Speaking in a press conference, Siyal said: ?situation will not get better until punishments are not given,? adding, ?the suspended SHOs were working in their professional capacity for the last three months.? The provincial home minister said that government is putting efforts to bring betterment in the police department. He added that his office is always open for the public. Sindh government has withdrawn powers of Inspector General of Police (IGP) AD Khawaja to decide the transfers and postings of senior police officials in the province. Approved by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, the order empowers the Services, General Administration and Coordination Department of the provincial government to issue the transfers and postings of SPs, SSPs and equivalent officers with direct approval of the chief minister. "Chief Minister Sindh has been pleased to approve that the transfers and postings of Superintendents of Police (BS-18)/ Senior Superintendents of Police (BS-19) and equivalent shall be issued by the Services, General Administration and Coordination Department," reads the order issued by provincial Chief Secretary Rizwan Memon. According to the notification, the order is in accordance with Rule 9(2) of the Sindh Civil Servants (Appointment, Promotion & Transfer) Rules, 1974. The government's order of August 9, 2016, whereby powers were delegated to the IGP for transfers and postings of SPs and SSPs "is hereby cancelled/withdrawn", reads the order. Issues between the provincial government and IGP Khawaja surfaced last year, when the latter was sent on ?forced leave? in December.
  5. This file photo ? taken on June 26, 2017 ? shows Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta (R), flanked by Deputy President William Ruto, gesturing during the unveiling of the Jubilee Party's manifesto in Nairobi. AFP/Simon Maina NAIROBI: Unknown gunmen attacked the home of Kenya's Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday seriously injuring a policeman, less than two weeks before the country votes in high-stakes polls, two security sources told AFP. Ruto was not home during the attack. An officer from the elite police General Service Unit (GSU) was seriously injured, a security official ? who was not authorised to speak to the press ? said. "There are armed people who staged the attack and have shot the GSU officer and stolen his gun,? the official said. Security forces are trying to establish if there are still attackers in the deputy president's "expansive" home near the town of Eldoret, some 312 kilometres northwest of the capital Nairobi, a senior police officer said. "More security personnel have been deployed and a security operation is ongoing," the officer said. The attack occurred despite the round-the-clock presence of guards from the GSU's top-notch reconnaissance unit. A spokesman for Ruto declined to comment but the security official said the deputy president had left the house shortly before the attack to attend a rally alongside President Uhuru Kenyatta, his running mate who faces a tight re-election contest on August 8 against longtime opposition leader Raila Odinga. Ruto's home sits in Kenya's western Rift Valley area, the flashpoint for an outbreak of election violence after the disputed 2007 polls that killed 1,100 people and tarnished Kenya's image as a regional beacon of safety and stability. According to opinion polls, this year's election will be close and tensions have been rising. Odinga has repeatedly claimed the government is scheming to steal the election, while Kenyatta has accused Odinga of trying to delay the polls. Earlier this month, Human Rights Watch said it had received reports of threats and voter intimidation in Naivasha, a flashpoint town in 2007 and one of the potential hotspots in this year's election. In the Rift Valley, hate speech flyers have been circulating and some local residents have already left their homes. The 2007 bloodshed haunted both Ruto and Kenyatta long after it ended when the International Criminal Court put both on trial for orchestrating the violence. Those charges were later dropped, with ICC chief prosecutor Fatou Bensouda blaming a relentless campaign of victim intimidation for making a trial impossible.

  10. Masked gunmen burst into a children's party in central Mexico and killed 11 people, authorities and witnesses said Thursday, in the violence-plagued country's latest mass murder. Police found the gory scene when they responded to an emergency call received just after midnight in the city of Tizayuca, in the central state of Hidalgo, the state security service said in a statement. Neighbours said four gunmen burst into a large white tent where a family was hosting a children's party outside their home and shot dead seven men and four women. Four children were found unharmed, public security spokesman David Pichardo told AFP. One of the children told authorities that masked men wearing police uniforms had arrived during the party and killed all the adults, according to newspaper Excelsior. Authorities had cordoned off the entire neighbourhood Thursday morning, and security was tight. Forensic workers could be seen examining the crime scene. Mexico has seen a surge of deadly violence in recent months, extending to areas that were once considered relatively calm. That includes Hidalgo, which sits just north of the capital, Mexico City. Murders hit a record high in May, according to the latest official data: 2,186 homicides, an average of 70 a day and the most since the country began keeping track 20 years ago. The violence is fueled by powerful, ultra-violent drug cartels. Since Mexico deployed the military to fight drug trafficking in 2006, a wave of bloodshed has left more than 200,000 people dead or missing, as rival cartels wage war on each other and the army. Recently, hitmen have been wiping out entire families -- including children -- in a sign that the unspoken code of honour that once governed the turf wars and revenge killings of Mexico's cartels is fraying.
  11. Art often comes out of tumultuous situations, and if the current political climate is anything to go by, the BJP can claim to have given this country many pained artists since 2014, the most recent one being Rahul Rajkhowa. A master's student in political science from JNU, his rap video against the downsizing of seats in JNU went viral in May, he has now come up with an indie ditty against mob lynching. © Facebook/Rahul Rajkhowa “In my video I try to cover lynching on the Hindu side and the Muslim side both, I am not trying to take sides. But because I am a JNU student I am still getting a lot of hate from BJP/ RSS people man because they think that I am from JNU so I must be leftist. So, my YouTube and Twitter is ablaze right now.” “But thankfully I get way more appreciating comments, the hate comments come for a bit but these are paid trolls no, so you can't take them to heart. And people come to my defence also. I like it man, people should be debating and it is fun that way.” The band, Paperboat, is on an album launch tour next month in places like High Spirits in Pune, Raasta in Bombay, Piano man in Delhi, Landsdowne, Hard Rock Cafe in Chennai over a span of 3 months. A big fan of blues music, his idea is to make groovy music with memorable lyrics that make you think. Mob lynchings have dramatically increased in the past 2 years as the polarisation of one community against another continues. But the central India has only seen increased violence now, something that has been rampant in corners of the country. In a Facebook post, he talks about his personal experience with mob violence in Assam. “So when I saw all this happening again I thought, I have to write a song, this is what I do. People on my FB timeline were still sharing pictures of parties and Instagram selfies, we have to make people aware”, he says. And when majoritarian politics divides, art shall bring us together. Like the departed genius Carrie Fisher said “Take your broken heart, turn it into art”.

  13. What if a huge cobra intrudes into your house and starts living there? Well, something similar happened with a Malaysian man. Derrick Koh witnessed a massive cobra entering his home in the Batu Pahat District of Johor, Malaysia and all he could do was to film it. At first, the snake was creeping around outside Koh's home, but it eventually found its way to the house's entrance. The massive cobra slithered up the door and entered the home through an open window. Koh called the fire department but they were initially unable to find the snake inside the home.

  16. We know nature’s call is hard to miss, but what does one do when their carnal desires overpower their thinking skills and the testosterone levels skyrocket, while on a plane that’s at a height of 32,000 ft? Well, if you think like Shaun Edmondson, you will possibly shout ‘YOLO’ in your mind and start making out with the girl. This story is not the brainchild of our thirsty or lustful minds. It actually happened on a Ryanair flight from Manchester to Ibiza, where the passengers got the chance to see a supposedly drunk couple have *** mid-flight. So while others were fastening their seat belts for safety, this guy was loosening his belt, because hey, who doesn’t want to get laid? © Facebook But, the craziness of the incident doesn’t end here. While, some assumed that these two were so madly in love with each other that they couldn’t wait till they reached home, it was only found later that the guy was actually cheating on his pregnant fiancée. So, when Shaun, who is a sous chef, was busy cooking up some controversial sh*t on the flight, Jena Ross, his girlfriend of 6 years and now fiancée was waiting for him at home. One of Shaun friends also commented on this matter saying, “He is known as a bit of a ladies’ man. That’s just a random woman he’s with, they didn’t know each other before the day.” The person further added “Shaun and Jenna are due to marry soon but that clearly won’t stop him.” Well, the West isn’t called progressive for no reason. While, we Indians were losing our sh*t over a Porn clip being accidently played at the Metro station, this couple went all out and the onlookers looked more than happy enjoying and filming this live *** scene. We guess for once even the passengers weren’t bothered about the flight’s sudden jerks as they were all busy looking at the guy getting laid. Talking about the deets, this ‘extremely drunk’ and sexually-aroused couple was flying from Manchester to Ibiza and before the laughing passengers could realize, the couple already started having ***. One of the passengers said, “You could see the girl taking off her pants and he pulled his trousers off. She started riding him. I had to get my phone out. I have never seen anything like that.” The couple was apparently unaware that they were being filmed. © Facebook A spokesman for Ryanair said, “We are looking into this matter. We will not tolerate unruly, disruptive or inappropriate behaviour at any time and any passengers who appear to behave in an unacceptable manner may be liable for further sanctions.” While, the authorities will look into this matter now, the cabin crew was probably busy looking at the randy couple because they reportedly didn’t do anything to stop the couple. While, technology and social media are irrefutably two of the most powerful tools that this generation could have got its hands on, there is no denying that at times it can majorly f**k things up for people. To give you a glimpse of how dangerous technology can be, let’s take you to a walk down the memory lane and reintroduce Evan Scribner, who was caught cheating on his girlfriend while he was busy catching Pokémon from his ex’s place. This time around it wasn’t ‘Pokémon Go’, but social media that ruined this man’s relationship or should we say saved the woman whom he was cheating on. Source: The Sun

  18. I’m bored of eating my favourite potato chips out of a plastic bag, honestly. I crave variety in my food; especially when I’ve had too much of it. Because too much of anything is bad, anyway. But, here’s the thing. When I’m hungry and lazy, I want to eat without actually doing any of the work. And I’m sure as hell not the only one. This is the story of all our lives, almost all the time. So, while I do love potato chips, I do want variations on how to eat potato chips differently, like, maybe make something more of it without any of the hard work. So, I got in touch with the guys at Lay’s who quite recently launched an innovative new concept, called Lay’s Chiperie—the evolution of the potato chip beyond the bag and create a sensory experience that elevates the tasty snack. Just what I needed! And along with chef, Andrea Mainardi, they helped reveal three easy breezy recipes you can create using simple potato chips the next time you want to eat them, out of a big, in a different way. Barbequed Style © Lays Ingredients 1 pack plain Lay’s 4 -5 Ribs 2 table spoon Barbeque sauce 4 Giardiniera carrots 4 - 5 fried Sage Ribs cooked low temperature with Barbeque sauce, Giardiniera carrots & fried sage.

When the meat starts to separate from the bones, drain and debone it. Aside, peel the carrots, cut them in slices and cook them in water spiced with vinegar, a pinch of salt and sugar. Mount the chips, putting a drop of barbeque sauce as a base, a cube of ribs browned in a pan veiled with oil, a carrot slice and a fried sage leaf.

Decorate and season with Catalan and a pinch of chopped chives.

  22. US President Donald Trump delivers remarks to U.S. troops at the Naval Air Station Sigonella before returning to Washington D.C. at Sigonella Air Force Base in Sigonella, Sicily, Italy, May 27, 2017. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst SIGONELLA, ITALY: With trouble facing him back home, U.S. President Donald Trump ended his nine-day overseas journey in dramatic fashion on Saturday, addressing U.S. troops at a campaign-style rally. Trump flipped traditional U.S. foreign policy upside down on his tour through the Middle East and Europe, coddling Middle Eastern leaders with questionable human rights records while demanding traditional European allies pay more for their defense. At a Group of Seven summit in the resort town of Taormina on the island of Sicily, Trump refused to entreaties from the other six allies to maintain U.S. support for the Paris climate agreement, insisting he needed more time to make up his mind. In a hangar at Naval Air Station Sigonella, which is also on Sicily, Trump was introduced by his wife Melania, who has raised eyebrows during the trip by twice flicking away her husband's hand when he tried to hold hers. "My husband worked very hard on this trip and I am very proud of him," she said. Trump, whose Marine One helicopter landed from Taormina to the soaring soundtrack of the "Air Force One" movie, emerged from two days of closed door summitry to declare his trip a success. Trump said he had helped forge more international cooperation in the fight against Islamist militants, a threat he said was underscored by a suicide bomber in Manchester, England, and the killing of Coptic Christians in Egypt. "It was a tremendously productive meeting where I strengthen American bonds," said Trump. "We have great bonds with other countries and, with some of our closest allies, we concluded a truly historic week." Trump skipped the traditional end-of-trip news conference to avoid facing questions about a host of problems he faces upon his return to Washington later on Saturday. His May 9 firing of former FBI Director James Comey has raised concerns about whether he was trying to squelch a federal probe into his campaign's ties with Russia last year. The questions have been intensified in the wake of disclosures on Friday that a senior adviser, Jared Kushner, the husband of Trump's daughter Ivanka, had contacts with the Russians in December about opening a secret back channel of communications with Moscow. Trump used his trip to promote "America First" policies, promoting $110 billion worth of arms sales to Saudi Arabia and telling G-7 allies that the United States needs a more level playing field on trade. His body language on the trip demonstrated his typically brash behavior, dramatized by his demands that NATO allies pay more for their defense and his refusal to explicitly declare that the United States backs Article 5 of the alliance's charter, which requires each member to come to the defense of each other. His pushing aside of the prime minister of Montenegro to get in place for a family photo generated headlines across Europe. At Sigonella, Trump said his appeals to NATO allies to pay more was working. "Money is starting to flow in," he said. "It's only fair to the United States. We're behind NATO all the way. But we want to be treated fairly."
  23. KARACHI: The Sindh home minister has taken notice of a ?fake? FIR filed late Thursday night by the Gulshan-e-Maymar police against four brothers who were reportedly involved in a road accident with a police vehicle, Geo News reported. In what is being termed a car-collision accident, a policeman driving an official vehicle hit a private vehicle from the rear Thursday night, following which he got out and allegedly assaulted all four passengers, called backup and then took the passengers of the private vehicle to the Gulshan-e-Maymar Police Station.

Moreover, the policeman was also allowed to take away his official vehicle without any examination being conducted on it by the Gulshan-e-Maymar police. When the news of the treatment meted out to the private citizens was reported in the media, Sindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Sial took notice of the incident and ordered corrective action. ?We will not let Karachi become a police state,? Siyal stated, adding that action will be taken against the policemen who filed the false case and the SHO of the Gulshan-e-Maymar police station.
