  1. 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. Finally, after three days and two nights, Koh says the snake was removed from the home.
  2. These players we're referring to here, are found in every situation you can imagine. In neighborhood bars, on WhatsApp with your girl, or in freshly-minted buzz cuts cuddling with Gigi Hadid. They are everywhere where the action is. Or as Urban Dictionary quotes, 'They're players. Or asses who'd lie to a girl to hook up with them'. But besides their pleasurable wants (which they're most famous for), they exude a certain sense of style—skinny jeans, thrown-own jumpers/brand logo T-shirts, high combat/Chelsea boots (think Harry Styles), tonal all-over, messy 'dos and a face that somewhat looks like this... © Viral Bhayani But truth be told, we're kinda digging this. First off, the colours are literally on-Fleek (or however the kids like to talk in 2017). While the head band's missing and 2013 trend, olive green isn't the biggest move of Mr. Kapoor, we're really not complaining. © Viral Bhayani Basically here, Ranbir has no effs to give. The mop's unkempt, his jeans are tucked in and a special shout-out to the Kardashian-Jenner-West clan approved Yeezy boots. If you're the man who's been with the crème de la crème of the industry, you should dress the part, no?
  3. Photo: File Paris police on Monday said they were dealing with an incident on the Champs Elysees in the city centre as a Reuters witness saw officers cordon off an area near the avenue and close to the presidential Elysee palace. The announcement on a police Twitter account advised the public to avoid the area, and came after people took to social media to report that a car had caught fire in the area.
  4. Pakistan?s historic win over India in Champions Trophy finale has not only lifted the team to number six position but also boosted the rankings of the young match-winning heroes. Bowling superstar Hasan Ali, who took home the Golden Ball award for the most wickets (13) in the tournament, has catapulted to number seven spot in the latest ICC ODI bowlers rankings. The 23-year-old pacer, who was also named Player of the Tournament, jumped 12 positions to reach the seventh spot. Batting sensation Fakhar Zaman, who thrashed Indian bowling with his quickfire hundred in the finale, has broken into the Top 100 batsmen for the first time after just four ODIs to his name. Fakhar?s Player of the Match effort of 114 in the final and 57 in the semifinal helped him gain 58 positions to reach 97th rank. Mohammad Amir, whose pace and swing overpowered Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan and broke the back of Indian batting, has climbed 16 slots to reach 21st place, while Junaid Khan has moved up nine places to 47th position. Babar Azam has reached a career-best fifth position after moving up three positions with scores of 46 in the final and 30 not out in the semifinal. Mohammad Hafeez has gained two slots to reach 20th rank while opener Azhar Ali has moved up 11 slots to 31st position. Read the complete rankings here.
  5. Refurbishing a house takes money, and if you want a luxury home, that’s a lot of money. You’d rather live more humbly than spend a major chunk of your peanuts salary in buying expensive furniture. Hampshire resident Adrian Reeman doesn’t agree. The 67-year-old man converted his 2BHK flat into a palace using Do-It-Yourself hacks. Yes, he did it himself, while we wait for the plumber to fix our bathroom tap. © Caters Adrian is a pensioner who worked as a chef in the Merchant Navy, and had no professional knowledge of how to build and create. Just a man with a hammer and chisel. The entire process took 30 years as Adrian was not working on it continuously but between his jobs whenever he could spare the time. © Caters He began from scratch, working on the dull interiors of his council flat. From carving beautiful woodwork on panels to changing doors, ceilings and every possible inch of the flat, he managed to create a breathtaking wonder. The house now resembles the Palace of Versailles, even though Adrian hasn’t ever been to the palace. Well, now he lives in one. How He Did It © Caters Since Adrian has no professional knowledge of carpentry, masonry etc., he just began with fixing basic paneling of walls and ceilings. The more he worked on the house, the more he got interested in creating a masterpiece. “I just thought it would keep me busy if I started to make it look nicer, and the project grew from there,” he told The Sun. And it didn’t cost him a bomb since he sourced a lot of his materials from skips and shops giving away discarded pieces. He recreated a lot of furniture and wardrobes using discarded wood, and tables from old wooden bowls. © Caters He even retouched the bathroom to give it a beautiful marble finished look and is still doing the final touches. “I’m currently working to make the toilet look like its made of marble. It’s only a small lavatory, and you can barely turn around in it, but that doesn’t mean you cannot make it look grand,” he was quoted by The Sun as saying. He lives there with his wife Annette who now loves her new home. But there’s a dampener – it’s a rented house and a clause in the agreement requires them to return the flat to its original state when vacating! Now, of course, that won’t be possible!
  6. WASHINGTON: A United States Navy destroyer ? USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) ? collided with a merchant ship, 56 nautical miles south-west of Japan's Yokosuka, late Friday night, the American naval warfare services said. The US Navy in its statement mentioned it has consequently requested assistance from the Japanese coast guard, while the extent of US personnel injuries is currently "being determined". "The extent of damage is being determined. [?] The incident will be investigated," the US Navy stated. ?This is a developing story and will be updated as more information is made available
  7. There are various devices that track your car’s movements and health but they are either too expensive for Indian consumers or not accessible to everyone due to availability issues. Four engineers from IIT designed a plug-and-play device that does exactly that. It has an inbuilt 2G SIM card to track your car’s movements and send alerts to your smartphone, in case your car is getting jacked. © Carnot It also alerts emergency contacts in case you are involved in an accident and measures your driving style with a ranking system.The device lets you stay connected to your car at all times given that your smartphone has working internet in order to be synced with the tracker/OBD manager. The device also won Qualcomm’s Design award earlier this year and here’s why we think it deserved it. How it works The Carnot device is easy to install and all you have to do is connect it to the OBD port of your car. The app lets you feed in your car details and prompts a video on how to find the port for your specific car model. The OBD port is generally below the steering wheel and one can install simply by plugging it in similar to how you connect a flash drive to a USB port. © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma After the installation, you will need to feed in your personal details, emergency contacts and other information on the official app. You will need to enter a 16-digit unique code that comes with the device and you are ready to go. Just make sure the car is parked in an open area as it uses mobile connectivity to pair with the app when setting up for the first time. © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma Once connected, you will get real-time updates about your car and the performance it is giving. I drive a Hyundai Creta and got some extremely useful information from the app. The app notifies you every time there is engine ignition and tracks the progress of your drive. You can set the app to notify you about unusual activities such as the car starting after a certain time. For example, according to my settings, if my car starts anytime after 1:00 AM, the app will send me a notification to check whether I am driving or whether the car has been stolen. The device will also track my fuel efficiency and the temperature of the coolant in case something is not in order. The device communicates with the computer on board my car and gives me a daily report about my driving style, it reports if I went above my speed limit and ranks my overall performance. Here are a few examples that might paint a better picture: Live GPS Tracking © MensXP Car Health © MensXP Driver Performance and Reports © MensXP Rash Driving tracking © MensXP Coolant Temperature Tracking © MensXP The Final Say © MensXP/Samiksha Sharma In our honest opinion, the Carnot is a device that every car owner should install. It gives you regular updates about your car’s health that you would normally never notice and adds security in terms of theft control. The device is also efficient when it comes to your driving style and suggests tips that could increase the fuel efficiency of your car. It is the one stop OBD manager that provides details about your ride. The device costs INR 5,999 and is worth every Rupee.

  9. If you're a colour freak along with social media maniac then congratulations, this news is for you. Facebook has recently an update and it's actually a very colourful one. Facebook has been quietly adding patterns, textures, illustration, and more to the status cards. Users around the world have been noticing a number of new background options in different colors which are quite amusing. According to sources, the company has reportedly experienced a decline in users posting statuses and that's why colored cards are an attempt to turn the ship around. The expanded backgrounds for comments seem to include a range of images like hearts and flowers, textured images like silk, and patterns like polka dots and confetti. Use them but just enough to feel good and not to annoy others.
  10. 12 people have already been confirmed dead because of a fire in the 24-storey Grenfell Tower in London. The death toll is expected to rise as time goes by. Residents are saying that their concerns regarding fire safety have been ignored even though the tower was refurbished just last year. The family and friends of residents have been trying to get in touch with their loved ones desperately through any means possible including social media. © Associated Press So far, 68 patients are being treated in 6 hospitals around the area. Out of these, 18 were in critical condition. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said, “There are genuine concerns, reasonable concerns, that have been raised in the course of the night and it’s really important that these questions are answered.” © Associated Press “I will be demanding answers and I can assure you I will be ensuring there is independence in relation to it. Across London we have many, many tower blocks and what we can’t have is a situation where people’s safety is put at risk because of bad advice being given or if it is the case, as has been alleged, of tower blocks not being properly serviced or maintained,” he added. Amidst, all of this, a video has surfaced on Facebook from one Rania Ibrham. The footage was uploaded early this morning and is already going viral with almost 5,000 shares. We strongly advise you against watching the following video, as it is quite distressing. Our hearts go out to everyone involved in this incident as well as their families and friends. We hope none of us ever have to go through anything as harrowing as this.
  11. India´s Yuvaj Singh (R) celebrates with Virat Kohli at the end of the match?Reuters. LONDON: India swept into the Champions Trophy semi-finals and eliminated woeful South Africa as Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kholi inspired the holders? eight-wicket victory on Sunday. Kohli?s side avoided the embarrassment of an early exit as they survived a do or die showdown to advance from Group B in style. Having dismissed South Africa for 191, two-time champions India cruised home with 12 overs to spare at The Oval. In-form opener Dhawan was the key figure with 78 from 83 balls, including 12 fours, while captain Kohli weighed in with a typically elegant 76. AB de Villiers was run out despite a desperate dive, India v South Africa, Champions Trophy 2017, Group B, The Oval, London, June 11, 2017?AFP. South Africa found it impossible to take charge against India?s accurate bowling and only Quinton de Kock (53) produced an innings of substance. India were aided by the shambolic South Africans, whose captain AB De Villiers failed for the third time in the tournament after being run out for 16. In total, South Africa had three run outs as they lost their last eight wickets for 51 runs. If India mount a successful run chase, the holders will join Group A qualifiers England and Bangladesh in the semi-finals. The remaining last four place will be decided on Monday when the winners of Sri Lanka against Pakistan will advance. Playing XI
  12. World class bodybuilding physiques can’t be made without anabolic steroids. That’s a truth many refuse to accept but it remains a fact whatsoever. But bodybuilding at its fundamental level is a competition & commitment with yourself. It’s about becoming the best you can. If you chose to do all that naturally, because you have made a commitment to yourself, it is a unique kind of fulfillment. Here’s a guide that will help you to achieve the best shredded shape of your life, naturally. You can apply this knowledge for your contest prep, photo shoot or that vacation at the beach. Note: This article neither supports nor condemns steroid usage. The intent is to provide knowledge that helps lifters achieve a shredded physique naturally, which is simply a safer way. Start Off Early! Give yourself at least 5-6 months for cutting, to reach that 10% body fat goal. Your favorite fitness models might do it in just 2-3 months, but they’re consuming a lot more than whey protein & creatine. If you intend to do your cut in such small frame of time chances are you will lose a lot of muscle mass or damage your metabolism. Aim for Body Re-composition: Dropping Body Fat & Increasing Muscle Mass Majority of people including many coaches believe that body re-composition, is only possible for newbies, but science tells us the other way. Almost every study done on experienced natural lifters has shown to increase muscle mass and strength while reducing body fat. Few Researches to Quote- 1) The Norwegian Experiment 2) Effect of HMB To ensure you’re losing fat and gaining muscle simultaneously, give yourself sufficient time, as mentioned earlier. Drop body weight gradually, around 200-350 grams /week with mini deficits of around 200-300 calories/day and take a 1-2 weeks of diet brake where your eat at maintenance calories after every 8-10 weeks. Increasing Strength Strength has a direct association with muscle mass. Of course strength also depends largely on neurological factors and how well you’re at performing the lift. But once you nail down, all that after 3-5 years of training, strength primarily depends on muscle mass. Thus, the stronger you’re, the bigger you’re. I’m not advising you to aim for a 170 Kg Bench and 250 Kg Deadlift during your cut. But the dumbest mistake you can do is: start training with light loads and high reps, and lose all the strength you gained during your bulking phase. When you’re cutting, you have to give your body a reason to preserve or increase muscle mass and strength is that reason. It is advisable to aim for micro load increments of about 200g to 1 kg in your compound lifts in 1-3 weeks. Cardio Never use cardio as a primary tool for your fat loss, if you wish to look lean yet muscular. It is simply a recipe for disaster. It will damage your metabolism, reduce strength & muscle mass. Keep cardio as the last weapon in your arsenal for shredding. I’ve few articles on cardio http://www.mensxp.com/health/weight-loss/35299-stop-running-mindlessly-here-s-how-you-should-utilize-different-forms-of-cardio-for-fat-loss.html, which type and how much you should do for cutting. So make sure you check them out as well. Supplementation Supplements will always be secondary to nutrition and hardcore training. But supplements can offer you an edge especially when you’re aiming to shred naturally. Recommended Supplements (ordered in terms of importance): 1) Vitamin D 2) Multivitamin & Multimineral 3) Creatine 4) Whey Protein 5) HMB 6) Hunger Control Supplement (for those who have trouble eating less, though this problem can be easily tackled consuming a wholesome diet with a lot of fiber but still.) Let Science Guide You. Take Every Minute Advantage You Can! Your counterparts on drugs have a huge anabolic advantage. They might get good results following a flawed training and nutrition program, but not you. Therefore, follow an evidence based approach for your nutrition, training, the time you train, amount of sleep and supplementation. If you know there’s something that can offer you even a slight advantage, grab it. Hire a good coach, who practices evidence based approach. At last and most important: Enjoy your Journey and don't get intimated by guys on drugs.
  13. The Surrey County Cricket Club is planning to redevelop The Oval stadium to increase its capacity to 40,000, according to a British media report. The Oval currently has a capacity of 25,000 but Surrey plans to rebuild Bedser Stand and Laker-Lock Stand after the 2019 World Cup, to boost capacity and make it the biggest cricket ground in the country. "English cricket needs a ground that can hold 40,000-plus supporters," Surrey chairman Richard Thompson told The Telegraph newspaper. "We have shown the demand is there and we would not contemplate this project unless we were confident we can fill this ground. ?We want to do something that is big, bold and ambitious and we know we can deliver." The club has held talks with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Duchy of Cornwall regarding the plan that will make The Oval one of the top venues for the region´s new Twenty20 league that is scheduled to begin in 2020. "The ECB are looking at places like the London Olympic Stadium because they want additional capacity," Surrey Chief Executive Richard Gould has said. "Well, we can deliver that here. When you look forward to the new Twenty20 competition this takes us to the next level." The club is expected to clear existing debts by 2022 and have approached the ECB for funding the 50 million pounds ($63.65 million) redevelopment in exchange for sharing ticket sale revenues.

The Congress vice-president began his journey by flying to Rajasthan?s Udaipur and then driving towards Mandsaur. However, his vehicle was stopped near the border after which the leader reportedly jumped on a motorcycle and was stopped again after three kilometres. After this, Gandhi started walking briskly around the check post of Special Protection Group. He tried to break through the police barricades but was stopped. After the incident, Gandhi tweeted that ?Raj [and] MP governments are doing their best to prevent me from entering MP and meeting the families of the farmers killed in Mandsaur.? In another tweet, he remarked ?What law of the land says that it is illegal to stand in solidarity with farmers who were killed simply for demanding what is their right?? The police said that Gandhi and other Congres leaders would not be allowed to enter Mandsaur, which is currently under the curfew. Presently, about 700 policemen have been deployed at the Neemuch border, according to Indian media. Gandhi had announced a day before that he will be travelling to Mandsaur. Violent protests Since the last week, a huge group of farmers and agricultural labourers have been protesting in Mandsaur, demanding higher prices for their crops and loan waivers. On Tuesday, the agitation intensified as protesters threw stones and vandalised vehicles after police allegedly opened fire on them. Later, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Bhupendra Singh confirmed that five farmers have been killed in the clashes with the police, which he had vehemently denied before.
  15. Members of the media photograph a prototype Apple HomePod during the annual Apple Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California, US June 5, 2017. Photo: Reuters Apple Inc (AAPL.O) on Monday introduced the HomePod, a voice-controlled speaker that can make music suggestions and adjust home temperatures, taking aim at Amazon.com Inc's (AMZN.O) Alexa feature and Echo devices. The move is the first into a completely new area by Apple for more than two years as the world's most valuable technology company looks to make up for a dip in iPhone sales and new ways to get customers to use more of its money-making apps and services. Apple's Siri assistant will be integrated into the $349 speaker, and can make music recommendations that pair with the company's Apple Music service, send text messages, check news and sports scores and control compatible home gadgets like lightbulbs and thermostats. HomePod users may initially be constrained by Siri's lack of capabilities as compared to Alexa, which also boasts the ability to order millions of Amazon products as well as food from restaurants like Domino's. Apple is expected to announce plans this week to make its Siri voice assistant work with a larger variety of apps, but initial changes were expected to add just a small number of capabilities. The HomePod speaker stands just under seven inches (18 cm) tall and is covered in fabric mesh that will come in white or gray. A computer processor will tune sound to the room and beam specific parts of music, like a singer's voice, toward the listener. Apple will begin shipping the HomePod to the United States, Britain and Australia in December. The speaker, while expected by some industry watchers, marked Apple's first new product announcement since the Apple Watch in September 2014. As a music-playing device, it will also be a challenger to Sonos, whose wifi-controlled speakers are used by many smartphone users for home entertainment. The Cupertino, California-based company said Siri, which also competes with Alphabet Inc's (GOOGL.O) Google Assistant, will now work across devices. A new Siri interface on the Apple Watch will also blend users' calendar information with other useful details, like airline tickets they may have booked, the company said. Apple shares closed down 1 percent at $153.93, not far below the all-time high set last month. Apple also used its annual developer meeting in San Jose, California - its largest ever with some 5,000 people attending - to offer hints about so-called augmented reality technology. The technology, a feature of the wildly successfully smartphone game Pokemon Go, overlays digital information on real-world images and is seen as an area in which the keenly awaited 10th-anniversary iPhone can stand out from competitors. New indoor maps of areas like malls and airports indicated that Apple might be laying groundwork to display information over images of those places in the future. The company also rolled out tools for developers to create augmented reality applications for iPhones and iPads. To show the tools off, Apple invited Wingnut AR, the company formed by "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson, on stage.

  16. Andy Murray racked up his 650th career win to reach the French Open quarter-finals Monday where he was joined by 2015 champion Stan Wawrinka. World number one Murray, the runner-up in Paris to Novak Djokovic in 2016, brushed aside Karen Khachanov of Russia 6-3, 6-4, 6-4. However, instead of discussing the match in the traditional on-court TV interview, Murray took the microphone to remember the 29 people who died in the recent outrages in London and Manchester. "Obviously there was terrible tragedy in London and Manchester. Paris has had its problems too in recent years," said Murray. "I am sure everyone will join me... we share our thoughts and prayers with everyone who has been affected. "I appreciate everyone still coming out to support the tennis. I am grateful that I can still perform in front of everyone." Murray broke the serve of the 21-year-old Russian, playing in a Slam fourth round for the first time, on five occasions. Before Monday, Khachanov had held serve for 48 successive service games. In his seventh Paris quarter-final, Murray will face Japanese eighth seed Kei Nishikori who defeated 33-year-old Fernando Verdasco of Spain 0-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-0. Nishikori, a beaten quarter-finalist in Paris in 2015, has now made the last eight of a Slam for a seventh time, a record for a Japanese man. Nishikori stunned Murray in five sets at the US Open last year although he insisted he had little memory of it. Memory man "I don't even know if I win or lost. I won?" he asked reporters of a win which was just his second in 10 meetings with the Briton, Wawrinka, the third seed, booked a place in the quarter-finals for the fourth time with a comfortable 7-5, 7-6 (9/7), 6-2 win over Gael Monfils, the last French player in the men's draw. Marin Cilic completed the quarter-final line-up when South Africa's Kevin Anderson retired with a thigh injury trailing 6-3, 3-0. He will take a 2-11 losing record against Wawrinka into his match with the Swiss star. It is Cilic's first Roland Garros last-eight spot while he is the first Croatian to get this far since Mario Ancic and Ivan Ljubicic in 2006. Seven of the top seeds have made the quarter-finals with Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta playing the role of gate-crasher having knocked out fifth seed Milos Raonic on Sunday. Czech world number two Karolina Pliskova needed three sets to get past Paraguay's Veronica Cepede Royg. The world number 97 had only won one match at the majors before this year's Roland Garros but she was the better player in the first set with Pliskova hitting just four winners. But the second seed steadied the ship to go through 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. Pliskova next faces 28th seed Caroline Garcia who won her all-French grudge match with Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-4. The two compatriots have been involved in a recent feud over the Fed Cup and are barely on speaking terms. However, they exchanged smiles and a warm embrace at the net at the end of the tie. Title favourite and 2014 runner-up Simona Halep trounced Spain's Carla Suarez-Navarro 6-1, 6-1 to make the last eight without dropping a set or breaking sweat. Third seed Halep, who like Pliskova can become the new world number one if she wins the title, claimed her first victory on clay in six attempts against the Spaniard. "I played my best match of the tournament. I served well and opened up the court," said Halep. The 25-year-old Halep will tackle Ukraine's fifth seed Elina Svitolina for a semi-final place. The two met in the Rome final on the eve of Roland Garros when Halep was beaten and suffered an ankle injury which threatened her appearance in Paris. Svitolina reached the quarter-finals for the second time, ending the dream run of world number 290 Petra Martic with a 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 win. However, Martic, bidding to become only the 10th qualifier to make the last eight in Paris threw away a golden chance for victory. The 26-year-old led 5-2 in the final set before Svitolina rallied to race away with the last five games.
  17. Indian federal investigators launched a fraud probe on Monday into the founders of news channel NDTV, in a step the channel denounced as an attempt to muzzle free speech in the world's largest democracy. Two senior officials at the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said it had registered a case against NDTV founders Prannoy Roy and his wife, Radhika Roy, for causing an alleged loss of INR 480 million ($7.45 million) to a bank. The company refuted the allegations and accused the CBI of "concerted harassment of NDTV and its promoters based on the same old endless false accusations". "NDTV and its promoters will fight tirelessly against this witch-hunt by multiple agencies. We will not succumb to these attempts to blatantly undermine democracy and free speech in India," NDTV said in a statement. The investigation comes at a time of often heated, polarising debate in India's fiercely competitive TV news industry, where channels sometimes test the boundaries of responsible journalism and prime-time talk shows are often rowdy and contentious. Police conducted raids at Roy's residence in New Delhi and at two vacation homes. Neither of the couple were available for comment but NDTV presenter Srinivasan Jain said the "message is clear". "Any independent voices in media will be bullied and shut down. Black day," tweeted Jain. The CBI said the investigation had no link to the editorial line of NDTV, India's oldest English-language all-news channel. "We have nothing against NDTV's news coverage ... they are accused of a financial fraud and its our duty to investigate," a senior CBI official said. India slipped by three places to 136th in this year's World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders, which highlighted concerns that Hindu nationalists were "trying to purge all manifestations of anti-national thought". Senior officials in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's office and members of his nationalist BJP have told Reuters they consider NDTV to be the least-government friendly channel. In a heated exchange last Thursday, an NDTV moderator demanded that a spokesman of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) either apologise or leave their live debate after he accused the channel of pursuing an anti-government agenda.
  18. While the Indian cricket team just gave us a lot to gloat about by demolishing Pakistan in their Champions Trophy encounter yesterday, the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) just gave us another reason to be proud of our country. They just launched their most powerful rocket, the GSLV Mk III (Fatboy), which laid a very strong foundation for future space projects. It was carrying the heaviest satellite of the country, the GSAT-19. Here’s the entire launch. Skip to 37:00 for the launch: It took just 16 minutes for the rocket to place the satellite in geosynchronous transfer orbit which we’re sure is some sort of achievement. Congratulations came pouring in for ISRO from all quarters including the President and Prime Minister of our country.

  19. This might sound like an idea coming straight out of a 'Fast & Furious' movie but believe us, it is 100% real. The HyperSub has two modes, one as a speedboat and the other as a submarine. We’ll take a look at both individually. Speedboat © Facebook/HyperSubTech As a speedboat, the HyperSub is ideal since it can be deployed from just about any beach or dock. It has a couple of engines which help it attain speeds of up to 26 knots. That’s just as good as any regular 900hp speedboat you could find on the market today. Submarine © Facebook/HyperSubTech As a submarine, it provides an on demand deep dive option as well as high endurance submarine abilities. It can dive repeatedly since it works on rechargeable batteries. It protects the crew inside against changes in pressure too. © Facebook/HyperSubTech It’s a mean machine but unfortunately, we don’t see it coming to India anytime soon. We’ll just have to settle for paddle boats:
  20. MIAMI: A new NASA mission aims to brush by the sun, coming closer than any spacecraft in history to its scorching heat and radiation in order to reveal how stars are made, the US space agency said Wednesday. After liftoff from Kennedy Space Center in Florida in July 2018, the Parker Solar Probe will become the first to fly directly into the sun´s atmosphere, known as the corona. The plan for the unmanned spacecraft is to orbit within 3.9 million miles (6.3 million kilometers) of the sun´s surface. Temperatures in that region exceed 2,500 Fahrenheit (1,377 Celsius), for which the spacecraft is equipped with a 4.5-inch-thick (11.43 cm) carbon-composite shield. Roughly the size of a small car, the probe will make seven flybys of the sun over a seven-year period, in what NASA described as a "mission of extremes." Traveling at a speed of 430,000 mph, the spacecraft will move fast?like going from New York City to Tokyo in less than a minute. Scientists hope its data will improve forecasts of solar storms and space weather events that affect life on Earth, satellites and astronauts in space. Time for a visit The spacecraft will measure plasma waves and high-energy particles, and carry a white light imager to capture images of the structures through which it is flying, according to Nicola Fox, mission project scientist at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland. "We will brush closely by it," she said at an event in Chicago to unveil the mission, which NASA has touted as promising to provide humanity´s closest-ever observations of a star. "You can learn so much from looking out the window," Fox said. "You can see the sun is shining, you can see the birds are singing. But until you actually go out, you have no idea quite how hot it is out there or how windy it is, or what the conditions are like." "I think we have really come as far as we can with looking at things and now it is time to go up and pay it a visit," she added. A 20-day launch window for the spacecraft´s liftoff atop a Delta IV Heavy rocket opens July 31, 2018. Re-named after astrophysicist Initially called Solar Probe Plus, the mission was renamed after the astrophysicist Eugene Parker, 89, professor emeritus at the University of Chicago. He published the first paper to describe solar wind?the high-speed matter and magnetism constantly escaping the sun?in 1958. "This is the first time NASA has named a spacecraft for a living individual," said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA´s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. "It´s a testament to the importance of his body of work, founding a new field of science that also inspired my own research and many important science questions NASA continues to study and further understand every day." Parker, who is days away from his 90th birthday, described the mission as "very exciting." "One would like to have some more detailed measurements of what´s going on in the solar wind," he said. "I´m sure that there will be some surprises," he added. "There always are."
  21. PPP's Aitzaz Ahsan speaking while addressing media outside parliament on Thursday. Photo: Geo News screen grab ISLAMABAD: Opposition Leader in the Senate, Aitzaz Ahsan, has demanded a full court bench of the Supreme Court to investigate reports that the court's registrar interfered with the Panama case probe. Talking to the media after the Parliament's joint session on Thursday alongside other opposition leaders, the Pakistan Peoples Party senator alleged that the prime minister planted a news report to pressurise the Supreme Court. A recent article claimed that the Supreme Court registrar made a WhatsApp and FaceTime call to the chairman of the Security and Exchange Commission of Pakistan, suggesting a particular name for inclusion in the Panama case Joint Investigation Team (JIT). Ahsan termed it a fabricated story, and alleged that the prime minister wants to make the JIT and the Supreme Court controversial as they are investigating his financial dealings abroad. He added that action should be taken if the registrar is found guilty, and urged the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take this news report seriously. Talking about former PML-N senator Nehal Hashmi's outbursts against 'those investigating the PM', Ahsan said Hashmi was speaking Nawaz Sharif's words. He claimed that the former senator got carried away in his message, but would still be awarded by the PM later on. Before Ahsan, opposition leader Khursheed Shah also claimed that the federal government is behind Hashmi's outburst. Talking about the joint session, he said the opposition was united in the decision to boycott the president's speech. He added that ?there has been nothing but chaos in the government since the last year.? The president did not speak about the problems faced by the people in Federally Administered Tribal Areas, he said further. ?The institutions have been threatened; judiciary and the armed forces have all been targeted. But, the president stayed silent on these issues,? he added. ?The institutions are being challenged openly; the president has failed to perform his duties.? ?We are not allowed to speak in the parliament,? he remarked, adding that the opposition members tried to solve the issue in the parliament and not on streets. ?For the first time such a situation has come up that we have to take to the streets.? A senator made startling remarks and immediately that senator was removed from the post. The opposition believes that the government was behind the remarks made by that senator, Shah said while referring to statements made by Hashmi. ?The government wanted to threaten the institutions, which it has done now,? he added. Addressing the media, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf?s Shah Mehmood Qureshi remarked that if he was in the government he would have pondered over why opposition is reacting so aversely. Opposition?s protest should have government analyse the measures they have taken to turn opposition completely against them. ?The government can get the budget passed with majority. But, this compromises the rules of democracy,? he added. Government pushed the opposition to hold a session outside National Assembly, said Jamaat-e-Islami?s chief Siraj-ul-Haq. ?Government is responsible for all its actions.?
  22. The poster of Rajinikanth’s upcoming movie ‘Kaala’ just came out and seems like it has caught businessman Anand Mahindra’s eye. But it’s not exactly the movie or Rajinikanth’s character that he is curious about, but the vehicle featured in the poster.

  24. US President Donald Trump has the honour of being the only president in history who has been the source of so many memes that even the internet is tired now. Trump's Twitter obsession is no secret. The president never misses the chance to tweet even if it's midnight but the latest post has the internet frenzied for all the right reasons: Confused right? Well, everybody is. Since the tweet was posted, Twitterati have been trying in vain to determine what the head of the most powerful country in the world was trying to say. The internet has been flooded with memes in a bid to make sense of what really happened.
  25. In my years as a fitness trainer and enthusiast, I have been asked this question so many times. Can I build muscle with bodyweight exercises? How big I get with just calisthenics? Well, here, let me tell you how far you can actually go with calisthenics and natural bodyweight exercises. Understanding Calisthenics © Thinkstock Calisthenics aka body weight exercises, are basically workouts that you perform using your own bodyweight as resistance. According to Wikipedia, calisthenics comes from the ancient Greek words ‘kalos’, which means ‘beauty’, and ‘sthenos’, which means ‘strength’. Bodyweight exercises like push-ups, lunges, air squats, bar dips and pull ups are a few common yet very effective exercises. Graduating With Calisthenics Is The Foundation For Weight Training © Youtube To be precise, body weight exercises come naturally to us. We are pre-disposed to move our bodyweight around. Push-ups, squats and pull-ups, all translate directly into real world functionality as well as strength. Having made that clear, I strongly suggest that you master working with your bodyweight, getting your form and technique right and then starting your grind under weights. If you are a beginner, this advice is directed at you. The benefits include better muscle coordination, strength gains, strengthening of bones, joints and so on. Moreover, it can be performed anywhere, at any time with almost negligible equipment. Graduating with calisthenics is like setting the foundation for weight training. Can you do weighted squats if your form sucks while air squatting? Nope, you will break under the weight. If you mess up your bodyweight pull up form, how do you expect to do weighted pull ups? There, that explains it all. Muscle Building With Calisthenics: Don’t Get Your Hopes Up! © Youtube Well, if you are a beginner, you can expect some muscle gains using calisthenics. Yup, just a little. That’s because as you progress, your muscles adapt to the load. Muscle hypertrophy needs consistently varied weight exposure. You need to shock your muscle with differentiated weighted resistance to witness growth. Either this, or find a way to add more resistance with your bodyweight exercises. The 3 Bodyweight Exercises You Must Master Free Squat aka Air Squats © Youtube Squatting is the best exercise for your lower body. It recruits the maximum amount of muscle fibers and generates maximum EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). Quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes are the primary muscles which are worked on during this exercise. It is the best way to master your form and technique. Push Ups © Youtube While this is one of the most basic workouts, people **** up their form, way too much. It primarily targets your pectorals (chest), anterior deltoids (front shoulder) and triceps. The push up is the most common yet the best way to test your upper body strength. By manipulating the angle, one can change muscle fiber recruitment. For instance, keeping your legs at an incline angle during push-ups will recruit your upper chest and anterior deltoids to a great extent. Pull Ups © Youtube Well, you got to do some pulls ups! Pull ups, probably the toughest among the trio, targets your latissimus dorsi (back muscle) and the biceps. It requires strength and practice to master the pull up. However, just like the squat, the pull up is also a great exercise to generate maximum EPOC. Beginners, even if you can do just one, do it anyway.
