  1. With the rise of various sports and growing fitness awareness amongst people, the need to get in shape and remain healthy is almost a necessity in today's fast-paced world. Given the unhealthy lifestyle choices at our disposal, it's imperative to hit the gym and flex those muscles in a bid to prolong your lifespan. But, while working out is probably the go-to option for being fit, prior engagements and usually-busy schedule often nullify that option for many individuals. Thus, those who can't spend time or money required for expensive gym memberships, usually resort to playing sports which generally takes less time and involves comparatively lesser monetary expenses. © Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Now, even when you've taken up a sporting activity, the likes of cricket and football - which often require expensive equipment and multiple players - isn't really the first choice amongst people. But, where cricket and football fail, the simple game of badminton excels brilliantly without punching a hole in your pocket. To kickstart your campaign in badminton, all you need is a racket, few shuttlecocks and a partner - which is way too easy when compared to other sports. And, to help you hit your first smash, we've narrowed the best badminton budget-rackets that won't cost more than Rs 3,000. 1. Yonex Muscle Power 22 There is a reason why Yonex has established itself as one of the most popular brands amongst both professionals and fans in the badminton world. Driven by technology and its ever-improving designs, the Japanese manufacturer offers a wide range of badminton rackets with the solemn purpose of improving your game. Amongst many of its prominent rackets, Yonex Muscle Power 22 is one of their most efficient, yet economical product available in the market. Weighing at just 85 grams, this racket boasts of an isometric shape and graphite frame to absorb shock. It's perfect for flaying those killer smashes. And, it's long durability makes it a perfect weapon for beginners on the badminton court. Price: Rs 2,647 Buy it here! 2. Li-Ning Super Series SS-68 III An arch-rival to Yonex, Li-Ning has slowly yet gradually established itself as one of the prominent brands in international badminton. And, their pocket-friendly 'Super Series' rackets are amongst the fastest-selling products in badminton across the globe. Amongst the 'Super Series' rackets, SS-68 III is the latest and probably the most-effective installment from the Chinese manufacturer. Boasting a medium-light carbon fiber frame, this racket has a flexible shaft and weighs around 95 grams. It's a great product to maneuver those impossible shots around the court and suits perfectly for intermediate players. Price: Rs 2,124 Buy it here! 3. VICTOR Bravesword 1600N Not really far behind Yonex and Li-Ning, VICTOR has slowly, but gradually, has established itself as another popular brand that has excelled in producing badminton equipment. Amongst its ever-competitive range of rackets, the 1600N is the second generation product of the popular Bravesword series. The 1600N has a graphite and resin shaft, and it's isometric head shape provides a large surface area for the shots and distributes an equal amount of force across the frame. Forged with a new technology, this beast reduces the air resistance for stability. It is the perfect fit for beginners as well as intermediate players. Price: Rs 2,975 Buy it here! 4. Yonex Voltric 1 DG Another cost-effective racket from Yonex, the 1 DG is part of the head-heavy Voltric series. Combined with the Tri-Voltage System, this racket enables the player to get maximum power without losing speed. Offering great strength and higher string tension, the Voltric 1 DG excels in providing 'all-round' performance. The combination of the Aero and Box frame makes it great at the hour of hitting the shuttle and also brings you excellent swings during the game. Thanks to the built-in T-joint, this racket can reduce torque and allows more control over the shuttle. While it might not be enough for the advanced players, the Voltric 1 DG is an excellent choice for the beginners. Price: Rs 2,710 Buy it here! 5. Li-Ning G-Force Pro-2500 The G-Force series from Li-Ning has established a reputation for being super light - courtesy its unrivaled agility with a carbon fiber. With the support of advanced calculation system, the rackets are made with extremely low air resistance and high intensity to enable the players' performance in various ways. Made of ultra strong material, the racket has the optimum rigidity to bear higher tension for exact and steady strokes. Its all-round optimized design improves racket mechanical structure for more efficient attack and defense system. The sweet point extends upward and the hitting point is moved higher to help the players pull off more powerful shots. Price: Rs 2,560 Buy it here!
  2. Photo: AFP Instagram has heard user complaints regarding its algorithm-based feed and is making changes to display more photos and videos in a chronological order. In a blog post released on Thursday, the photo sharing app announced that it will be ?introducing changes to give you more control over your feed and ensure the posts you see are timely?. The move comes after users complained about the news feed which switched to an algorithm-based formula. The app which was bought in 2012 by Facebook, remains the only social media app free of controversy after Facebook and Snapchat both saw their shares drop. However, Instagram does not plan on returning the feed to a purely chronological manner. The new changes will appear in a number of forms. According to Kevin Weil, VP of product at Instagram, the change is ?focused on making the feed fresher?. At the moment, Instagram is testing a 'new post' button which will let you choose when you want to refresh the feed. Tapping the button will let users see brand new posts at the top of the feed, and if not, you will stay where you are. Instagram said it will be adding more improvements to its feed over the next few months.
  3. "In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting quarrels or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community with the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often for the troll's amusement.'' -Wikipedia © MensXP Internet trolling is a prominent part of pop culture. Why? Because everyone has to have an unwarranted opinion to justify their stance as an 'internet warrior' so to speak! Before the internet became a savvy platform to address your woes and other things that go along, the word 'Troll' had a completely different meaning. I mean, we spent most of our childhood learning about trolls, who were these naughty, yet mighty, little creatures causing havoc in the not-so-real world. If you directly take away from the Troll behaviour of yesteryear, nothing has actually changed! I mean, literally, trolls have taken over the virtual world today and are actually causing a huge amount of chaos, on the interweb! © MensXP As the internet becomes more social, dealing with people's trolling activities has become more aggressive and rigorous. And why shouldn't it? Everyone has an opinion after all! But what happens if trolls come out of your screen and meet you in the real world? Is that dangerous? Or simply, another way to meet spectacular, like-minded people? Well, it totally depends on what side of the coin you call out on. Sometimes, when you're trolling the wrong idea, or a wrong crowd, things can get messy and you can face dire consequences! PS: never leave your address or location online! Why, you ask? © MensXP Well, 'Ninja Chacha' is a well known troll in the 'online trolling world' and he shows his disgust for most things online, without much discretion! But what happens when the troll gets trolled? And what happens when the troll finds love? The new episode of Love On The Rocks 'Troll Naka' answers these questions for us and takes us to the other side of the trolling trend! Have you ever met someone on the internet, while voicing your opinion out loud, through your keyboard of course, for a cause you truly believe in or don't? Is love possible, for people who stand up for similar things? There's only one way to find out! © MensXP Love On The Rocks LOTR is a series of 8 short films which will deal with the different facets of modern relationships and the trials and tribulations that young couples have to go through in this day and age. The concept of 'modern love and dating' from a millennial standpoint oscillates from passé to complicated! Here's a glance into millennial love and what it stands for today! All videos which are a part of this series will be standalone and across genres. Catch a brand new episode on MensXP's Facebook page every Wednesday!

  5. We see so many ads on a daily basis that are so, so bad that they actually make you look away from your TV for a few seconds, because you cannot believe that you just watched that. Remember those kinds of ads? Of course, you do, because bad memories don't go away so easily as they are always back to haunt us. But, we have found literally the worst one of the lot, and I'm apologizing in advance for making you sit through it, but trust me, it's so bad that it's good. First of all, it's a beer ad and it includes a whole family. It starts with the mother being judgemental about a girl drinking beer, because obviously, how else do you show an Indian mummy? Extra points for that 'hawww'. Loving the acting, auntie! Then, the couple watches everyone around them drinking beer that too “khulle aam”. Oh no, yeh aaj kal ke bacche! More hawww. But, there's more. Their own kids come back with these beers, and that's just a typical Indian mom's worst nightmare, right? Now, comes the twist that we've been waiting for – it's not even beer! Now, I wasn't expecting that. It's non-alcoholic, and now the father wants to know all the benefits of drinking this 'beer'. What a nice ending. All the random people started listing the reasons, and everything was fine, but this girl made a point and I don't know how to react to it. Raise your hand if you never knew that. Well, we learn something new every day, don't we? Here's the whole video, get ready for the best 72 seconds of your life. If it was up to me, this whole ad, and each and every actor, would get an Oscar, because of the beautiful acting they've done. This is a masterpiece and it should get all the attention and appreciation it deserves.
  6. One of the biggest problems of training naturally is that you can't get too big when it comes to muscle size. It's a fact. No matter since how many years you have been training, you have certain limitations when it comes to putting on good size. Only decent size is achievable even after training for at least 3 to 4 years, regularly. However, there are a few shortcuts or strategies that can be followed to look bigger instantly. You can use these strategies for a photoshoot or anywhere you want to look bigger than usual. 1) Loading Carbs © Pixabay As you would already know, there is a certain protocol that even bodybuilding athletes follow to look their best on the stage. This strategy revolves around playing with your carbs. When you eat enough carbs, your muscles get enough glycogen and they are able to bind more water molecule in them to look bigger and bulkier. This works best when you carb deplete your body first and then load them up. A good carb load is done when you consume 3 to 4 gm of carb per pound of your body weight for 1 to 2 days. Carb sources should be a combination of simple and complex carbs in which complex carbs like sweet potato and oats should be dominant. 2) Get Hydrated © Pixabay Majority of us think that we drink enough water during our normal routine. However, the truth is that only 15% of the total population actually drinks enough water according to their hydration needs. People who work out need to consume more water than others, as they lose water while working out. If you do not replenish your hydration level, your muscles will look flat. Try consuming more water even for a day than what you are consuming right now and you would start seeing the difference. Your muscles will look round and full. 3) Supplement Right © Pixabay Though it's generally the pre-workouts that always promise you insane pumps and muscles, it's actually creatine monohydrate that can deliver this for you. Creatine Monohydrate is the supplement that every 'natty' guy out there should include in his supplement arsenal. In fact, if you can afford even a single supplement out there, creatine monohydrate should be your choice. The results of creatine monohydrate are totally visible. Though it won't give you results in a couple of days, but yes, a few weeks on creatine and it will be a game changer for you. Creatine Monohydrate will give you that full muscular look which you always wanted. 4) Ample Rest © Pixabay Another way to look bigger in a very short period is to get proper rest to your body. Majority of the time people only concentrate on their workouts and compromise on their rest which includes getting less sleep time. When you sleep less, your muscles don't recover properly and they look flat. Get good sleep of around 8 to 9 hours and you'll notice the difference in your muscles. Fully recovered muscles look rounder and fuller.

  7. You might be surprised that in the 19th century, being fat was cool. In fact, a man with a big belly was considered ideal as a husband because of his ability to provide food for himself and his wife. Don't you just wish we went back to the days when women used to dig beer bellies instead of six pack abs? Most gyms would shut down in a month and would be replaced with beer waterholes. © YouTube Modern societal view has taught us to look at fat in a very negative manner. People are being body shamed for being fat. Everyone nowadays seems to have this crazy obsession about reaching single digit body fat percentage. It's become so bad that people seem to want to ditch fat like it's their crazy ex wielding a hammer! Is Body Fat Really That Bad? And More Importantly, What Is Fat? In layman terms, body fat is the amount of fat in your body, compared to everything else which includes your organs, muscles, bones, tendons, water, and so on. Technically speaking, body fat is adipose tissue. Its main role is to store energy in the form of lipids, although it also cushions and insulates the body. Fat's main role is to work as an energy store. Around ½ kg of fat contains roughly 3,500 calories of stored energy. Assume that you use your 100% fat as fuel (which you don't), this is enough energy for a 70 kg person to walk roughly 55 kilometers before using that energy. Even at an extremely low 2 kgs of body fat, you'll still have around 15,000 calories of stored energy which can give you energy for 250 kms of straight walking. Morbidly obese people have upwards of 20-40 kgs of stored fat. That accounts for around 175,000-350,000 calories of stored energy which can keep them going for several months before they fully deplete their fat storage. There have been cases of some very obese individuals who have fasted for up to a year without problems. Excess Fat And Associated Problems © Wikimedia Most people think body fat is bad and want to get rid of it. They usually focus on the negative aspects of excess body fat (obesity) which is true to a certain degree. Excess fat is associated with a number of health consequences, most of them very bad. From insulin resistance to the maintenance of a low-level chronic inflammation, staying fat in the long-term is generally not healthy. But this is an oversimplification and generalization, while too much body fat is not good for your health, having too little body fat can be just as bad. What Body Fat Is Necessary For Body fat acts as a physical cushion for your internal organs. It also acts as insulation, keeping you warm when it gets cold. Also fat cells play a critical role in immune and inflammatory responses. People who diet to extremely lean levels frequently report getting sick more, feeling more inflammation. While this may not be the cause but it certainly is correlated. This means that all of the functions of fat aren't bad for the body. Fat exists for a reason, even if most of us are carrying more of it than we need or want. So, now that you've understood body fat and its functions, are you still looking for ways to reduce it? Here, read these pieces.

  8. We all go through a little trouble organizing our lives, don't we? In the daily hustle and bustle of modern life, we do really need some help when it comes to managing our daily affairs. All of these applications are focused on getting things done. Classic productivity. There are new apps that crop up every day, adding more and more depth to the app category. Some of the apps are incredibly plain and simple, while others are more robust and offer more features than you can shake a stick at. 1. TickTick: Things and Task To Do © Appest Limited TickTick is a powerful to-do & task management app with seamless cloud synchronization across all your devices. Adding new to-dos is as easy as typing them, and you can set deadlines and set custom reminders for specific times of the day. You can set the to-do to recur every day, week, month, or year, complete with specific repeat days, so you can have a daily to-do repeat every five days, for example. You can even set when the to-do should stop recurring. It is also available for Windows, MacOS, and Android. Download from App Store 2. WeDo: Your Second Brain © Onus Inc. The app can be used to track individual tasks, tasks that require your regular attention, as well as tasks you set for yourself to change your lifestyle. The app also supports subtasks. More impressively, it also packs task sharing and chat features. You can create 'Tribes', which is the app's way of denoting groups of your co-workers, or members of your family, with whom you'd like to share tasks. Everyone in the Tribe can use the inbuilt chat feature, to follow up with each other, if needed. WeDo is also available for Windows, MacOS, and Android. Download from App Store 3.

Microsoft To-Do © Microsoft One of the big draws of Microsoft To-Do is the “My Day” feature, which encourages users to focus on daily tasks by offering a fresh list every day. The app is connected to Office 365 and will offer built-in integration with Outlook along with other Office apps farther down the line.

Lists can also be assigned emoji to easily tell them apart, and of course, will sync across whatever devices you're using To-Do on. Download from App Store 5. 1Password: © 1Password Remembering and searching for passwords is a huge time waster.

It will recall your password for each respective site without the hassle of you trying to remember it or having to write it down. Download from App Store 6.

The reason I love it so much is because it gives you statistics on how well you've done. If there's a particular set of habits you want to make a part of your life, get Strides right now.

  9. The duality of Alia Bhatt is an alarming element indeed. While on hand she can make us go 'awww' with her uber cute looks, she also holds the power to knock the wind out of us with her sexiness. Throw in the fact that she is a powerhouse of stellar performances, and we have our millennial icon before. But most importantly, she is also someone with whom we can relate to. Despite coming from an influential Bollywood family, she made her way to the top by focusing on her performances and entertaining us all these years. Her calendar might be booked with her work but she always manages to find time for her loved ones and especially her cat Edward Bhatt. As the beautiful actress celebrates her 25th birthday today, we bring you some unseen and rare pictures of her with her family that you just can't miss: A Family That Eats Together, Parties Together & Poses Together © Instagram Yes, She Is Daddy's Little Girl Daddy's little girl.

  10. Syria's conflict has killed more than 350,000 people, uprooted more than half the population and left much of the country in ruins since it erupted seven years ago. Here are some key statistics: Victims The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says it has recorded the deaths of 353,935 people since the conflict began with anti-government protests in March 2011. Those killed included 106,390 civilians, of whom 19,811 were children and 12,513 were women, according to a toll it released on March 12, 2018. In a country with a pre-war population of 23 million, the United Nations estimates that 6.1 million people have been internally displaced by the fighting. Handicap International, a French non-governmental organisation, says one million people have been wounded in the war. Refugees The war has forced 5.4 million people to flee Syria, according to the UNHCR. Neighbouring Turkey, the main host country, has taken in more than 3.3 million Syrian refugees. It is followed by Lebanon, which the UN says hosts around one million Syrians - one in four of the Lebanese population. The Lebanese government says as many as 1.5 million Syrians are in the country. In Jordan, where the UNHCR says it has registered 657,000 Syrians, the government says it is hosting 1.3 million. At least another 246,000 Syrians have taken refuge in Iraq and 126,000 in Egypt, the refugee agency says. Imprisoned, tortured In 2017, Amnesty International said Syrian authorities hanged around 13,000 people between 2011 and 2015 at the infamous Saydnaya prison near Damascus. It said a further 17,700 people had died in custody since the conflict began. The Observatory says at least 60,000 people have died from torture or harsh conditions in regime prisons since 2011. The monitor says half a million people have spent time in regime jails since the start of the conflict. Several thousand have died over the same period in prisons run by militants, it says. Economy in ruins Analysts say the conflict has set Syria's economy back by three decades and devastated its infrastructure. The education and health systems are in ruins. With oil production at its lowest in years, a total halt in phosphate exports and power generation sharply reduced, Syria's economy is on its knees, according to government ministers. In a July 2017 report on the economic and social consequences of the conflict, the World Bank estimated the cumulative losses in GDP at $226 billion, about four times the Syrian GDP in 2010. The World Bank said of the cities taken into account in the report, 27 percent of the housing stock had been damaged, with seven percent of that destroyed and around half the medical and education facilities. "Some 13.1 million people in Syria require humanitarian assistance ... with 69 per cent of the population estimated to be living in extreme poverty", the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Aid (OCHA) said in 2017. It reported 2.98 million people in hard-to-reach areas, including 419,000 in UN-declared besieged areas. In March 2018 the UN condemned "the deliberate starvation of civilians as a method of warfare" following the publication of shocking images of severely malnourished children in the rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta. On February 18, the regime launched a ferocious assault on the enclave where 400,000 inhabitants have lived under government siege since 2013.
  11. The only thing that makes MS Dhoni's fans happier than seeing him playing on the field, is seeing him spend some quality time with his family. Time and again, we have seen pictures of Dhoni and his adorable family making rounds on the internet. While most of them are from public appearances or cricket matches, they never fail to reinstate the fact that Dhoni is through and through a family man. A post shared by @mahi7781 on Sep 16, 2016 at 7:27pm PDT Sakshi and Dhoni keep offering us rare glimpses of their personal life, far, far away from the paparazzi and cricket matches. But you know who always steals the thunder without even trying? Their daughter Ziva. From trying Snapchat filters to legit photoshoots, Ziva has always managed to capture hearts of people across the country and steal all the attention from her famous parents. A post shared by @mahi7781 on Jul 25, 2016 at 12:14am PDT And once again, the ace cricketer has offered us insights into his brief time-off from cricket. If you don't know, Dhoni is currently not playing in the ongoing Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka. And given the well-deserved break, what better way to spend that time than with his family? He shared a video on his Instagram which is basically a slideshow of a plethora of pictures of him with his family and his dogs. The caption reads as “Fun time with the family” and after watching the video, you'll realize the caption does complete justice. Have a look: Fun time with the family A post shared by @ mahi7781 on Mar 12, 2018 at 10:25pm PDT While Dhoni is taking a break right now, we will get to see him back in form in the upcoming Indian Premier League 2018.
  12. Hair God Zayn Malik may be a hair-colour-changing king first, but let's admit: he's equally good in the 'do department too. While in the recent past, he's experimented with some major colour palettes, almost all of them have featured distinct hairstyles as well. And if you thought he was done, you were wrong. As a matter of fact, Malik had been a little au naturel lately, sporting his natural hair colour with ample use of pomade, and always down for turning his top-fur into a playground. Once again, dabbling with a concept of global mop-colour trends, he gave us a shocking sight on his Instagram today: Sun is shining , the weather is good ð´ð¶ð¸ A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Mar 11, 2018 at 9:01am PDT Here's the thing: the hair colour may not be very groundbreaking, but the 'do is almost reminding us of his One Direction days. Those days his Gingham checks had more visibility than his mane and when his hairstyle was perpetually almost the same. Besides just a light fade, he never turned to drastic grooming changes. Just a slight stubble to go with his scalp-garden and that's all. A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on Feb 1, 2018 at 8:16pm PST So, broken down, there are no defined boundaries with his style this time. Of course, since facial features call for flattery, there is a trace of a fade in here. But all summed up, there's a lot of mess in here, and just slight use of a texturing hair wax. Plus, absolutely no use of a bristle brush or comb. This is the result of the glorious use of his fingers alone. And going by Zayn's recent past, however, this is no biggie, boys.
  13. Elon Musk has been the foremost pioneer as an innovator in the past decade and he wants the world to know about the risks that surround Artificial Intelligence (AI). The SpaceX founder admitted that nothing “scares the hell” out of him more than AI. Musk made an appearance with the creator of science fiction western series 'Westworld' and said that although he's not usually an advocate for regulation and oversight, the AI proposition is where he can make an exception. "This is a case where you have a very serious danger to the public, therefore there needs to be a public body that has insight and then oversight to confirm that everyone is developing AI safely -- this is extremely important," he said. "Some AI experts think they know more than they do and they think they're smarter than they are ... this tends to plague smart people, they define themselves by their intelligence and they don't like the idea that a machine can be way smarter than them so they just discount the idea, which is fundamentally flawed. "I'm very close to the cutting edge in AI and it scares the hell out of me.” Elon Musk pointed to AlphaGo, a computer program that plays the board game Go. It was developed by Alphabet Inc.'s Google DeepMind in London. Musk said AI is capable of doing a lot more than what humans can imagine and the rate of improvements is also exponential. © AlphaGo In just a few months, AlphaGo went from being able to lose to a decent Go Player to beating world champions. AlphaGo also managed to crush its predictor AlphaGo Zero with a score of 100-0. It basically learned the rules of the game itself and got better at it than anybody or anything on this planet. "No one predicted that rate of improvement," Musk said. Elon Musk connected the dots between Artificial intelligence and self-driving vehicles that could benefit from the rate of improvement. Musk expects self-driving cars to feature all sorts of different driving modes and expects them to be at least 100-200 percent safer than a human driver. © Youtube "The rate of improvement is really dramatic, but we have to figure out some way to ensure that the advent of digital superintelligence is one which is symbiotic with humanity. I think that's the single biggest existential crisis that we face, and the most pressing one," he said. "The danger of AI is much greater than the danger of nuclear warheads, by a lot and nobody would suggest that we allow anyone to just build nuclear warheads if they want -- that would be insane. "Mark my words: AI is far more dangerous than nukes, by far, so why do we have no regulatory oversight, this is insane.” Musk has previously stated that AI could be responsible for starting a third World War. Musk, who is preparing to send humans to outer space with his SpaceX venture, thinks there is a possibility of another Dark Age may encompass earth soon. © Reuters "If there's likely to be another Dark Ages, which my guess is that there probably will be at some point ... particularly if there is a third world war, then we want to make sure that there's enough of a seed of human civilisation somewhere else to bring civilisation back and perhaps shorten the length of the Dark Ages," Musk said. "A self-sustaining base ... ideally on Mars ... it's more likely the Mars base will survive than a Moon base. I think a Mars base and a Moon base that could help regenerate life back on Earth would be really important and to get that done before a possible World War III. "Last century we had two massive world wars, three if you count the Cold War, I think it's unlikely that we'll never have a World War again ... this has been our pattern in the past.” Source: Zdnet
  14. LAHORE: Four more officers of the Punjab Land Development Company (PLDC) have been arrested by the National Accountability Bureau in Ashiana-e-Iqbal housing scheme case, and will be presented in the court on Saturday. According to NAB, the arrested officers include Bilal Qadwai, Imtiaz Haider, Colonel (retd) Arif and Lahore Development Authority (LDA) Chief Engineer Israr Saeed. Qadwai was working as the economic specialist in Strategic Planning Unit for the Ashiana-e-Iqbal housing scheme. The probing body interrogated the arrested officers for over nine hours. NAB summons Shehbaz in connection with Ashiana housing scheme inquiry The Punjab CM is called upon to appear before a combined investigation team at in Lahore on January 22 NAB started probe into the housing scheme after finding out that officials in the Punjab government ordered ?cancellation of award of contract of Ashiana-e-Iqbal to successful bidder Ch Latif and Sons, leading to award of contract to Lahore Casa Developers (JV), a proxy of Paragon City (Pvt) Limited, which resulted in the loss of Rs193 million approximately?. A statement by the anti-graft body read that Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif directed PLDC to award consultancy services of Aashiana-e-Iqbal project for Rs192 million approximately, but its actual cost was Rs35 million. Prior to the arrest of the four officers, NAB also arrested others, including former director general of LDA, Ahad Cheema, and Shahid Shafiq, chief executive officer of Bismillah Engineering Company, a C-4 category organisation part of the joint venture Lahore Casa Developers that was ineligible for the contract.
  15. Android continues to have more loyal users than the ones using the iOS, a new report by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) said on Friday. The report says that not only has Android loyalty been rising since early 2016, but it's currently the highest it has ever been. CIRP's survey concludes that 91 percent of Android users in the US stayed with the same platform, whereas 86 percent stayed with iOS. "The data was measured as the percentage of customers that remain with each operating system when activating a new phone over the twelve months ending December 2017," said Mike Levin, Partner, and Co-Founder of CIRP. (c) CIRP While Apple enjoyed record revenue in November due to growth in services such as Apple Music, Apple Pay, iCloud, AppleCare, and App Store, much of Android's brand loyalty could be attributed to a customer's ability to switch to different styles of phones without having to leave the operating system. As TechCrunch highlights, the figure measures the percentage of US customers who stayed with their operating system when upgrading their phone in 2017. (c) Pexels The report is based on quarterly surveys with a sample of 500 subjects each. Android loyalty has hovered at 89 to 91 percent since January 2016, while iOS loyalty has been between 85 and 88 percent. iPhone owners were found to be more loyal than Android users in 2013 but the trend shifted the following year and Android has risen ever since. “We know Android has a larger base of users than iOS, and because of that larger base, the absolute number of users that switch to iOS from Android is as large or larger than the absolute number of users that switch to Android from iOS,” said Levin. “Looking at the absolute number of users in this way tends to support claims that iOS gains more former Android users, than Android does former iOS users.” Source: TechCrunch
  16. Twitter and other social media companies such as Facebook have been under scrutiny by US lawmakers and international regulators for doing too little to prevent the spread of false content WASHINGTON: False news stories spread much more quickly and widely on Twitter than truthful ones, an imbalance driven more by people than automated ?bot? accounts, researchers said on Thursday. A study by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology?s Media Lab examining about 126,000 stories shared by some 3 million people on Twitter from 2006 to 2017 found that false news was about 70 percent more likely to be retweeted by people than true news. The study, published in the journal Science, was one of the most comprehensive efforts to date to assess the dynamics behind how false news circulates on social media. Twitter and other social media companies such as Facebook have been under scrutiny by US lawmakers and international regulators for doing too little to prevent the spread of false content. US officials have accused Russia of using social media to try to sow discord in the United States and interfere in the 2016 US presidential election. The stories examined in the study were reviewed by six independent fact-checking organisations including Snopes and Politifact to assess their veracity. False stories spread significantly more quickly and broadly than true stories in all categories of information, but this was more pronounced for false political news than for false news about terrorism, natural disasters, science, urban legends or financial information, the researchers said. They noted increases in false political stories during the 2012 and 2016 US presidential races. Though Twitter?s allowance of bots has come under particular criticism, the MIT researchers found these automated accounts accelerated true and false news equally, meaning people were more directly responsible for the spread of false news. MIT Media Lab researcher and study lead author Soroush Vosoughi said people may be more likely to share false news because it is more surprising, the same way that sensationalized ?click bait? headlines garner more attention. ?One reason false news might be more surprising is, it goes against people?s expectations of the world,? Vosoughi said in an interview. ?If someone makes up a rumor that goes against what they expected, you are more likely to pass it forward.? While the study focused on Twitter, the researchers said their findings likely also would apply to other social media platforms including Facebook. A Twitter spokeswoman declined to comment on the study?s findings, but pointed to tweets by company CEO Jack Dorsey last week pledging to ?increase the collective health, openness, and civility of public conversation, and to hold ourselves publicly accountable towards progress.? Twitter provided funding and some data access to support the study, which was published in the journal Science. The study?s findings faulting humans more than bots for sharing false news surprised the researchers, who said they next may look for ways to help people cut down on the sharing of false stories. ?Let?s not take it as our destiny,? said Deb Roy, another of the researchers, ?that we have entered into the post-truth world from which we will not emerge.?
  17. Just like the movie 'Hidden Figures' where women proved their mettle with hidden numbers, it seems like Rekha Jhunjhunwala, the co-owner of Rare Enterprises, too has a special eye when it comes to numbers. Her investment portfolio itself tells her whole story. Rekha Jhunjhunwala, the other half of Rakesh Jhunwala, a well known Indian investor and trader, investments just saw a proliferating rise and has earned more than 900 cr in just one year. © TOI According to a report shared by Zee Business, Rekha's investment portfolio has seen a massive growth of 47 percent in a single year. As of March 8, 2017, they were valued at Rs. 1,909 crores and exactly a year later, in March 2018, it states that the value of her portfolio stood at Rs. 2,814 crores. That's a rise of 900 crore which is a pretty big deal. By now you must be interested to get into the number detail of her portfolio and find out where all she invested her money, so here is a little breakdown of her recent investment portfolio. Her 3.17 percent stake in Delta Corp and her 1.53 percent stake in Titan, both separately saw a surge of as much as 80 percent in a year.

A recently published FAFEN report compared the on-floor performances of female and male lawmakers in both Houses of the Parliament. The report showed that female MPs actively participated in the proceedings through regular attendance and substantive contribution to parliamentary business, particularly in the National Assembly during the reporting periods May 2017 to February 2018 for the National Assembly and March 2017 to March 2018 for the Senate. Currently, women constitute 20% of the Parliament with 19 seats in the Senate and 70 in the National Assembly. The FAFEN report stated that the National Assembly held 75 sittings while the Senate held 100 sittings during their respective reporting periods.

Further, the report highlighted that female lawmakers in collaboration with their male counterparts contributed to 39% of parliamentary business in the National Assembly and Senate during 2017-18. The women parliamentarians contributed 36% of the business transacted by both Houses of the Parliament in their respective parliamentary years. They also supported their male counterparts in sponsoring a three-percent additional agenda. A total 5,654 agenda items were included in the parliamentary orders of the day during the reporting period. The percentage of women?s contribution to parliamentary business in the National Assembly was equivalent to that of men, i.e. 49%. In the Senate, women sponsored 15% parliamentary business individually and three percent jointly. Further, female members of the National Assembly initiated 31 (32%) of 98 bills on their own and 22 (22%) bills in collaboration with their male colleagues. Female lawmakers exclusively sponsored 36 (50%) of 72 resolutions in the National Assembly and collaborated with their male counterparts for moving 16 additional (22%) resolutions. Similarly, female lawmakers in the Senate sponsored 13 (9%) of 145 bills on their own and five in partnership with male lawmakers, and moved 15 (15%) of 99 resolutions. Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) senators Muddasir Sehar Kamran, Sherry Rehman and Rubina Khalid sponsored the highest number of resolutions in the Senate. Meanwhile, Jamaat-e-Islami?s Aisha Syed sponsored eight while Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf?s Shireen Mazari sponsored seven resolutions in the National Assembly.

As per the report, on average, a female lawmaker sponsored 23 agenda items individually in both Houses of Parliament whereas a male lawmaker sponsored on average 10 agenda items. In the National Assembly, a female lawmaker introduced on average 25 agenda items, in comparison to six by her male colleague, the report further showed. In the Senate, a female lawmaker sponsored on average 17 agenda items as compared to 21 agenda items per male lawmaker.
  19. Smart a**, bad a** and great a** Deadpool is one of the sassiest superheroes ever and there is no one who can say otherwise. In recent years, Deadpool has made his own space in the Marvel Universe. From getting his own movie starring Ryan Reynold, making big bucks at the box office to now being all set for its sequel, he is totally killing it. © Marvel And now Marvel has decided to come up with something new and cash on the craze around the 'merc with a mouth' by giving him his very own brand new comic book series. This will be part of Marvel Comics' Fresh Start series. As reported by Comicbook.com, writer Skottie Young and artist Nic Klein will be working on this series. Well, the news has already created quite a buzz among Marvel fans. © Marvel For people who are wondering when they can grab the first issue of the new Deadpool comic, let us tell you it will be on the shelves in June just weeks after the release of Deadpool 2. Talking about the series, its editor Jake Thomas said in a press release, "Deadpool's gone through A LOT these past few years, and while he's accomplished a lot, the merc with the mouth may have taken his eye off his mercenary business for a bit too long. "So how does a soldier for hire get business back up and running? The only way Deadpool knows how: maximum effort, reasonable rates," he added. What's interesting is the comic will take us right back to Wade Winston Wilson's roots to give us a better understanding of him. © Marvel The statement further reads, “It's been a while since Deadpool's had to merc to make ends meet, but things are tough all over. While Deadpool tries to get his humble mercenary-for-hire business back off the ground, a catastrophic threat so unfathomably hu ge, so mind-breakingly cataclysmic it defies description, is heading towards Earth, and there's only ONE PERSON WHO CAN STOP IT!!! Oh no, wait, it's…it's not Wade, is it? Oh, **** it's Wade.” Well, Deadpool is back to kill for money and we could not be more excited to see some perfect comic-timed bloodshed!
  20. Honestly, whatever the hell you may think, but Karan Johar's one of the biggest style gods of this century. That too, a low key one. He may be hanging with his core crew, catching a flight in ugly sneakers, wearing a Nataraj pencil coat; but that's exactly what makes him special. Considering he's no actor (or is wanting to be one), his #CelebStyle is yet the talk of town. And that's no easy feat. Once again to put his bank balance on display (but in his own way), Johar stepped out in another example of international fashion. And while the outfit featured a sweatshirt, classic jeans, dad-sneakers and a flappy shoulder bag — we kinda love it. Because in no way were the pieces usual-man stuff. © Viral Bhayani First off, Karan's R13 Elvis Presley over-sized sweatshirt is priced at a whooping $687, approximately Rs. 45,000. And belongs to a grungy, cool-girl womenswear brand, that now retails at the top commerce giants globally. Let's also mention, that this is the first-ever sighting of the brand on an Indian celebrity. Plus, while this could be a pick from a womenswear label, we're 100% down for this uncanny activity. Unisex clothing is a big reality. © Farfetch Going further down, let's talk of Johar's dirty, ugly, chunky, bulky dad-like sneakers that's one of the biggest footwear trends of the season. Hailing from Balenciaga's Triple S sneaker range, these kicks are almost sold-out globally and are the epitome of Normcore in the year 2018 (though, they first appeared in 2017). Also, flag-bearers of the #DirtySneakers in India. © Balenciaga If looked closely, the basis of this footwear style is a derivation of what your dad would prefer — a little too big and just odd (lol). But that's exactly what this trend of 'dirty' sneakers is about. And since they're titled dirty anyway, keep them dirty. A little muck here and there is only going to up your stakes. Plus, they're supremely comfortable too (albeit with a hiking-shoe lacing system). And since it's all about being up-and-about in the pair, it's rubber layers (that are giving it some major elevation) are just what your feet deserve. © Viral Bhayani How to pair them? If you're down for going all normcore here, opt for relaxed jeans or wide-legged trousers with this. Or else, stick to tailored, skin-grazing fits and balance the proportions out throughout (these shoes are BIG, bro). What's the price? $795, approximately Rs 52,000.
  21. Minister of State for Interior Affairs Tallal Chaudry. Photo: Geo News file ISLAMABAD: The Minister of State for Interior Affairs Tallal Chaudry has said that his party, the Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N), wants more respect for the institutions. Speaking to the media outside an accountability court in the federal capital, where a corruption reference against PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif was being heard, Chaudry said it is yet to be seen if the Parliament is receiving its due respect and rights. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had filed three interim 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 bureau recently filed supplementary references in all three cases as well. "The Parliament should not be turned into a municipal committee," he said, adding that the entire system needs to be scrutinised. SC accepts Tallal's request for digital record of contemptuous speech Contempt hearing against state interior minister adjourned until March 8; Chaudry granted exemption from appearing The minister further said that many voices are being raised [against injustice] and the beauty of the democratic system is its flexibility for corrections and improvement. Chaudry refused to comment on a contempt of court case against him in the Supreme Court, the hearing of which was conducted a day before.

  23. The Apple MacBook Air has been immensely popular among all other MacBook models, and the company is said to be working on a newer MacBook Air model that will be priced cheaper than its predecessor. According to a report by 9to5Mac, citing KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will launch a 13-inch MacBook Air model with a 'lower price tag' in the second quarter of this year. Apple will host the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in June this year, where it is expected to announce the launch. It's been ten years since Apple first released the MacBook Air and many believe a redesign is long overdue. At the time, it was dubbed the 'world's thinnest laptop,' with Jobs boasting that it was so slim that it could fit into a manila envelope. © Reuters While Apple managed to successfully discontinue the 11-inch MacBook Air in 2016, the 13-inch variant has remained on the shelves, albeit without any major upgrades or even visual changes. The focus has been on the 12-inch MacBook, which should have been the obvious successor, but with prices starting at 1,00,000 rupees, it is just too expensive. Interestingly, some reports recently pointed out that Apple may discontinue the MacBook Air line this year, however, contrarily the MacBook Air has so far garnered good sales. With this kind of product, Apple could target lower-income users, starting with students, who often look to alternative options running Windows 10 or even Chrome OS. So, rather than abandoning the Air, as some may have expected, Apple could be set to prolong the lifespan of this product. © Reuters We also heard at the end of January that Apple would fit its new computers with custom processors; Bloomberg noted at the time that at least two laptops were slated to get those chips. The company has previously designed processors in-house for things like image processing, security and handling Touch Bar duties. Source: 9to5Mac
  24. Women have to face more psychological challenges than men world over, Head of Department of Psychiatry at Aga Khan University Ayesha Mian said on Tuesday. The psychiatrist who trained abroad for 16 years before moving back to Pakistan five years ago recalled that her mentor in the United States warned her that she?ll have to work three times harder at any job she does. ?One of the reasons he gave for that was that I was a woman,? she said while speaking to Geo News. ?But he asserted that I should never let the challenges hold me back and keep me from excelling,? she said, advising other women to do the same. Mian stated that women across the world have to face challenges but because Pakistani society is still struggling to accept women, the challenges posed to Pakistani women are different. Data on Pakistan shows, more women suffer from anxiety and depression than men. ?Interestingly, more married women in Pakistan suffer from anxiety and depression as compared to single women,? Mian said, adding that abroad the numbers of single women battling anxiety and depression are higher as compared to married women. Regarding the upbringing of young girls, Mian stressed that parents should maintain an equal relationship with their sons and daughters. ?From an early age, you should divide household tasks between your children equally,? she said. ?If your daughter sets the table one day, then your son should the next day,? Mian advised. ?There should not be a different set of rules for girls,? she further said. On teaching young girls to protect themselves, Mian said, ?We stress a lot on how girls should safeguard themselves, but I always tell mothers they should spend more time on teaching their sons how to respect women, irrespective of where they are or what they are wearing.?
  25. Barring Sachin Tendulkar, no other cricketer from India comes even close to the kind of popularity and fanbase Mahendra Singh Dhoni has enjoyed over the years. Coming from the cricketing backwaters - the mining state of Jharkhand, Dhoni's home-made batting and wicket-keeping technique, and a style of captaincy that scales the highs and lows of both conservatism and unorthodoxy have undoubtedly propelled him to the pinnacle of the sport. While his marauding stroke-play adds teeth to the Indian middle-order, Dhoni's lightening-quick glovework makes him a nemesis for the opposition batsmen. When it comes to his leadership skills, the fact that India have swept the top honours in all formats - the No. 1 Test ranking for 18 months (starting December 2009), the ICC World Cup in 2011 and the World T20 on his captaincy debut in 2007 - puts him high in the list of the country's most successful captains. © BCCL Though his exploits on the field and cricketing skills are enough to make him a fan-favourite, Dhoni's sense of style and especially his unique hairdos have been a huge hit with the spectators. The Jharkhand cricketer burst on to the international scene with long hair and then, immediately after winning the 2007 World T20, he shaved his head. Since then, Dhoni has sported almost all kinds of haircuts. He was seen donning a mohawk during the IPL, while his buzzcut rapidly became a popular choice for his fans. Amongst all the hairdos he has ever had, his iconic long-haired look has always stood out. So much so that former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf once told Dhoni not to cut his hair. © YouTube Today, Dhoni is no longer the Indian captain and his long hair paved way for a more mature look. But, in a welcoming surprise to his fans, Dhoni turned back the clock by sporting the long-haired look for a television commercial. . Who wore the skirt better? With my main man @mahi7781 . .

Dhoni's look eventually became a topic of great discussion as fans lined up on the social media to give their opinion.
