  1. ISLAMABAD: Minister for Power Division Sardar Awais Ahmed Khan Leghari issued direction to assess the performance of distribution companies (DISCOs) and their CEOs in order to eliminate any mismatch in tariff, an official press release said on Tuesday. The performance of the DISCOs will be assessed on the basis of their success to bridge the gap in the sold and billed units, said the press statement. A performance review meeting was held today, following which the notification was issued. Leghari directed the CEOs of all DISCOs to submit quarterly tariff adjustment petitions during March with the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA).

The federal minister directed the CEOs to ensure replacement of defective meters within seven days after it is has been declared defective, besides clearing the backlog of defective meters in their respective DISCOs by March 31, 2018.

  2. Working out or not, we all know that smoking is injurious to health. So I wouldn't go on saying why you need to stop. It's your choice. What I am going to talk about here is 'does smoking affect muscle gain'. Is it actually affecting your output in the gym? Let's decipher! There are following effects that smoking has on your body that impacts your workout. - It Increases Carbon Monoxide in Blood - It Increases Tar in Lungs - It makes you addicted to Nicotine Let's discuss the above three points and how do they impact your workout. © YouTube Carbon Monoxide When a smoker puffs a cigarette, he inhales carbon monoxide which is a poisonous gas. This Carbon Monoxide bonds with the hemoglobin molecule in the blood, to an extent that it replaces oxygen that's being carried in the blood. Now when this blood is carried in different parts of your body, it is carbon monoxide that's being carried along with oxygen. When ample oxygen supply is not available to the body cells and tissue, they cannot perform their functions optimally. Now when this insufficient supply of oxygen continues for a long time, body faces difficulty in performing its basic function like growth and repair of cell. Absorption of nutrients like protein which helps in repair of muscles also becomes difficult. Now as you would already know that to build muscles, you need good protein absorption. This does not happen due to smoking, thus smoking is going to be counterproductive for your goal of building muscles. Impact Of Tar Smoking cigarette causes Tar accumulation in your lungs. Almost seventy percent of the tar in every cigarette smoked is accumulated in your lungs. This accumulated tar limits the capacity of your lungs and it reduces the amount air you can breathe in. Tar also causes coughing, increase in mucus in the lungs which hinders their capacity to perform their function in the human body. Since you are not able to pull in enough air through your lungs during the workout, your muscles do not get enough supply of oxygen. This in turn leads to early exhaustion and weakness in the body. This is the reason that someone who smokes falls short of breathe easily in a workout as compared to someone who does not smoke at all. Smokers thus are unable to exercise with high intensity, limiting the number of reps performed and the amount of weight load lifted. © YouTube Effects Of Nicotine Nicotine is a stimulant that makes smoking an addiction. It hits your mind as soon as seven to eight seconds of smoking a cigarette. The effects of nicotine in body includes (but Not limited to) increase in heart rate, Increase in blood pressure, Constriction of small blood vessels on skin, poor metabolism, Poor testosterone Production etc. All of the above effects are totally counterproductive for bodybuilding. Now some of you might be thinking that increased heart rate would help in workout, Right? Well, let me explain this thing to you. To achieve a similar blood circulation as a non-smoker, a smoker's heart has to beat 30% more. Now since your is already working more than the normal heart, when you demand more from it during a workout, it will need more energy and hence you will get exhausted easily. This is the reason that a smoker always lags behind a non-smoker when it comes to bodybuilding. So the choice is yours guys!

PML-N backed independent candidates have bagged 15 Senate seats across the country according to unofficial and unverified results as more results are expected to come in shortly. ?No worldly power or conspiracy can defeat someone who has help from God,? Maryam tweeted. She also appreciated party leaders for supporting the party and remaining steadfast in difficult times. In Punjab, PML-N-backed independent candidates secured 11 of 12 seats in the Punjab Assembly and also bagged another two seats in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. While in the federal capital, PML-N backed Mushahid Hussain Syed bagged the technocrat seat while Asad Junejo won the general seat. PML-N backed Dilawar Khan won on the technocrat seat from KP. The PML-N is expected to replace the PPP as the largest party in the upper house after Saturday's election.
  4. SEOUL: North Korea has called off a joint cultural performance with artists from the South ahead of the forthcoming Winter Olympics, Seoul said on Monday, underscoring the fragility of their Games-led rapprochement. The event at Mount Kumgang, a renowned scenic spot in the North, had been due to take place on Sunday as part of a flurry of talks and visits between Seoul and nuclear-armed Pyongyang ahead of the Games in Pyeongchang next month. The moves, triggered by the North's leader Kim Jong-Un in his New Year speech, come after a year in which Pyongyang carried out multiple missile launches and its most powerful nuclear test to date, sending fears of a conflict on the peninsula soaring. As well as athletes, Pyongyang is sending hundreds of other delegates to attend and hold parallel events, including cheerleaders and artists who will mount cultural performances in Seoul and Games venue Gangneung. South Koreans had been due to take part in a reciprocal event at Mount Kumgang this weekend, but Seoul's unification ministry said the North told it the performance had been called off and Pyongyang had taken umbrage at critical media coverage. The North's decision to attend Pyeongchang came after months of entreaties from Seoul to participate in a "peace Olympics", and the two have agreed to form a unified women's ice hockey team, their first such side since 1991. But there has been criticism in the South that Seoul has made too many concessions to Pyongyang to persuade it to participate, and that the unified team will deprive some Southern skaters of their chance to compete on the Olympic stage. 'Difficult first step' Pyongyang has also said it will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the foundation of its regular military on February 8 - the day before the opening ceremony for the Olympics - and satellite photos have shown soldiers and armoured vehicles rehearsing for a possible parade that would amount to a show of military strength. The unification ministry, which oversees relations with Pyongyang, said the North said South Korean press "was fanning public opinion that insults the North's sincere efforts made for the Pyeongchang Olympics, and even took issue with the North's internal celebratory event, leaving the North no choice but to cancel the agreed-upon event." Only hours earlier, the North's KCNA official news agency carried a report citing the Rodong Sinmun newspaper saying conservatives in the south were "making a desperate bid with blood-shot eyes" to disrupt improved relations between the two, which they considered "a horrible nightmare of tightening their windpipes". Seoul urged Pyongyang not to unwind the agreements further. "The South Korean government finds it very regrettable that the event agreed upon by both Koreas will not materialise because of the North´s unilateral notice," the unification ministry said. "Also, we would like to stress that both South and the North should implement without fail the agreements made based upon on the spirit of mutual trust and understanding at a time when we managed to take with difficulty a first step towards the improvement of inter-Korea ties."
  5. Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor after seeing the Sanjay Leela Bhansali's epic were in awe of Deepika Padukone's stupendous act. Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor were in a committed relationship for a long time. The couple called their quits after Deepika apparently caught Ranbir cheating on her. While they were together, the rumours were rife that Ranbir's mother Neetu Kapoor did not approve of the relationship. On the other hand, Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor seems to be quiet fond of the leggy lass. The yesteryears actor had even supported the actress when widespread protests erupted in India, before the release of Padmaavat. The couple after seeing the Sanjay Leela Bhansali's epic were in awe of the actress' stupendous act. To show their appreciation, the veteran actors sent her flowers with a note that read, ?Excellent work!!! So very proud of you. Love Neetu and Rishi Kapoor.? Deepika, in return, took to social media to thank ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor?s parents Rishi and Neetu. ?It was so lovely seeing both of you yesterday...Thank You for all the love & appreciation!@neetu54#RishiKapoor,? she captioned the image.
  6. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmaavat' has been floating in a pool of controversies since the day it was revealed that he is making a period drama on the life of Rani Padmaavati. After facing intense backlash, innumerable delays in the release date and a ban from several states; 'Padmaavat' is finally inching closer to see the light of the day on January 25, when it will hit the theatres. Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Despite the growing tension (as we stand a week away from the movie's release), the makers have posted this amazing teaser cum dialogue promo from the movie, which has honestly taken our excitement to a pinnacle and made the wait for the movie harder than ever. Viacom 18 motion Pictures Ever since his first look was released, people have been raving about Ranveer Singh's Sultan 'Alauddin Khilji' look. With kohl-lined eyes, long tresses, a scar on his face and a cold deadly stare; Ranveer Singh not only owns the character; but declared it loud and clear that this movie is going to be his best performance ever. And the latest dialogue promo only cements the same. Viacom 18 Motion Pictures The promo begins with a monologue where Ranveer boasts about the Khilji Dynasty's dream to rule the world someday. And while we started falling in love with this mad king, Rajput king Maharawal Ratan Singh aka Shahid Kapoor comes in the frame and gives one of his best dialogue deliveries we have seen so far, “Keh dijiye apne sultan se, unki talwaar se zyada loha hum suryavanshiyon ke seene mein hai (Tell your Sultan, there is more power in the hearts of Suryavanshis than in the swords of the Khiljis).” Although this is a 30-second short promo, it is nothing but pure awesomeness and the credit entirely goes to Ranveer and his portrayal of Khilji.
  7. DAX board ? the German share price index ? is seen at the stock exchange in Frankfurt, Germany, December 22, 2017. REUTERS/Staff/Remote Markets bid 2017 goodbye on a modestly defensive note on Friday, but the year will be best remembered for leaving global investors wealthier. A pick-up in global growth boosted corporate profits and commodities during the year, while tame inflation kept central banks from snatching away the punch bowl of easy monetary policy. MSCI?s world equity index shed 0.12 percent on Friday, leaving it short of an all-time intraday high reached earlier in the session but nonetheless enough to give the index an unparalleled record of gains each month this year. The large and mid-size companies in the index of 47 countries added more than $8 trillion to their market value during the year. ?By all accounts, 2017 has been a great year for the market,? Arian Vojdani ? an investment strategist at Bethesda, Maryland-based MV Financial ? said. Craig James ? the chief economist at fund manager CommSec ? said of the 73 bourses the firm tracks globally, all but nine recorded gains in local currency terms this year. Major indexes from Japan to the United States and emerging markets are up double-digit percentages for the year, with the pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index up 7 percent. Caution signs US markets offered caution signs for the new year in the year?s final hours of trading on Friday. Wall Street stocks and the US dollar drooped, helping safe-haven bonds and gold, and a reminder that after a run-up with so few obstacles there may be little room for error. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 118.29 points (0.48 percent) to 24,719.22, the S&P 500 lost 13.93 points (0.52 percent) to 2,673.61, and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 46.77 points (0.67 percent) to 6,903.39. ?The key issue is whether the low growth rates of prices and wages will continue, thus prompting central banks to remain on the monetary policy sidelines,? said CommSec?s James. ?Globalization and technological change have been influential in keeping inflation low. In short, consumers can buy goods whenever they want and wherever they are,? he added. One of the early issues for 2018 will be the March 4 Italian election. As things currently stand the vote is expected to produce a hung parliament that could ultimately catapult four-times premier Silvio Berlusconi back to centre stage. Ten-year Italian government bond yields rose to two-month highs on Friday at just over 2 percent. Bond prices fall as their yields rise. The dollar is suffering, too, despite the widely held assumption at the start of the year that, with the US Federal Reserve set to raise interest rates and lawmakers poised to cut taxes, the only way for greenback was up. Three rate hikes and a tax bill later, the dollar hit a losing streak in which its value sank by 9.7 percent, in the dollar?s biggest annual decline since 2003. The dollar?s loss has been a gain for emerging markets and the euro, which charged ahead 14 percent for the year. The wilting dollar has also lifted commodities priced in the currency, which have also benefited from a synchronized pick-up in global trade and surprisingly strong demand from China. Everything from coal to iron ore has reaped gains. Copper has been a stand-out performer in part due to expectations of rising demand for the mass production of electric vehicles. The industrial metal is turning in its largest annual gains since the global financial crisis ebbed in 2009, but it slipped off its four-year highs on Friday. Copper futures lost 0.51 percent to $7,251.50 a tonne on Friday. Gold turned in a banner year, too, despite not being needed for its role as a guard against inflation, which has been tame. At $1,303.22 an ounce, the shiny metal saw its biggest annual gain since 2010. Oil ended the year at around its highest prices in 2-1/2 years after data showed strong demand for crude imports in China and a surprise fall in US production. US crude rose 0.47 percent to $60.12 per barrel and Brent was at $66.62, up 0.7 percent on the day. Benchmark 10-year US Treasury notes last rose 8/32 in price to yield 2.405 percent, down a bit from the 2.439 opening figure for the year despite the Fed?s rate hikes as weak inflation and strong demand for bonds kept rates in check and financial conditions easy.
  8. A pro-Kannada group, identified as Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene, threatened to commit mass suicide over Sunny?s participation in a New Year's Eve performance in Bengaluru. Photo: file Sunny Leone is no stranger to controversies. The Bollywood lass who has worked hard to make her way but still faces issues relating to acceptance in India. A pro-Kannada group, identified as Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene, threatened to commit mass suicide over Sunny?s participation in a New Year's Eve performance in Bengaluru, reported Indian media. Protesting in front Manyata Tech Park on Friday, the group burnt her posters and condemned her programmes as an assault on Karnataka's culture. The president of the organisation, Harish said that he wouldn?t mind if the actress wears a saree and performs. India Today's report quoted the state president of the protesting group as saying, "We are against Sunny wearing short clothes. If she wears a saree and takes part in the event, even we'll go watch her. Sunny doesn't have a good past. We shouldn't be encouraging such people. We will not hesitate to commit suicide on 31 December." Taking notice of the incident, the Karnataka government denied permission to Bollywood actor Sunny Leone to perform at a New Year's Eve show in Bengaluru. "We have denied permission fearing law and order problems in the wake of protests by pro-Kannada outfits and also keeping in view the directions of the Karnataka high court in a molestation case reported on MG Road last New Year's Eve," said home minister R Ramalinga Reddy. He added that they decided not to grant permission considering that her fans in Kochi went berserk during her visit there in August. "We took feedback from Kochi police before taking the decision," Reddy added.
  9. Singer Justine Skye. Image Courtesy: Fashion Bomb Daily Singer Justine Skye dropped to a knee toward the end of her rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner prior to the Brooklyn Nets home opener against the Orlando Magic on Friday. Some NFL players have sat or taken a knee during renditions of the song the past two seasons to protest racial inequality in the United States but NBA players have stood in accordance with league rules. The protests have raised the ire of US President Donald Trump, who says the players are being disrespectful to the country and the military. In an online post, the 22-year-old Brooklyn native said she was uneasy about singing the song to begin with and said she probably would not be asked to do so again. ?I had to take a knee for the opening game in my city and let my voice be heard,? Skye wrote in an Instagram post along with a video of the performance. ?We will not be silenced,? she said, adding an emoji of a clenched fist and the hashtag #blacklivesmatter.
  10. Yes. She has done it again. It was already a given that Kangana Ranaut was going to deliver a power-packed performance, but watching her acting her heart out as the uber cute, ultra dorky “Simran” is like watching butter sliding down hot toast- mesmerising! As the title suggests, “Simran” is all about the amazingly talented Kangana Ranaut, who successfully keeps every eyeball in the hall glued to her throughout the film. The only flaw in the movie lies with its lack of consistency. The first half keeps you totally engaged, as you chuckle, giggle and snort at Ranaut's antics. However, things go haywire in the second half. Plot: Praful Patel (Kangana Ranaut) is a divorcee living in Georgia, United States with her parents and works in the housekeeping department of a hotel. However, there is another side to her seemingly innocuous character- thieving and gambling. Before you know, one mishap leads to another and Praful's life snowballs into a giant mess (expected at this point in the film) Those among us who often find life taking control over our actions, whilst we sit back and watch it all go up in flames, will totally relate with “Simran”. Simran leads a fairly drab life, as her father does not seem to think much of her, while her mother wants to see her daughter get settled in life. Simran, however, has grand plans of her own. She wants to have her own apartment and escape her parent's house. As you keep watching one thing becomes obvious, Kangana has done her homework. She slips into the skin of her Gujarati role with apparent ease, reminding you of her “Tanu Weds Manu” days where she is a complete ‘Kanpuria' right down to her abusive tongue. Everything is fine until she switches gears into her gambling and theft mode. Praful becomes Simran, the name she adopts as a robber and that's the point where the whole story starts losing its grip. The second half struggles with the mood, tone, and story, distracting you from what the plot really is. Still, one manages to foresee the grave that Praful has dug for herself with her choices. Eventually, the flat and predictable story line, inexplicable songs and finally the exhausting plot rains all over Ranaut's impressive parade. You may not find yourself rooting for Praful, but you will totally connect with her on different levels! Watch this film only for Kangana, as she flawlessly nails it. Again.

The MQM-Pakistan under Farooq Sattar summoned a session of the local government officials and reviewed their performance. The Rabbita Committee said if discrepancy between the tenders and results is found out then the administration of the central district should be changed. Sattar also demanded a report from Mayor Karachi, Deputy Mayor, and District Chairman. The MQM-P chief while reprimanding Mayor Karachi said that he was ?causing embarrassment to him?. Upon the question of performance, an exchange of words also took place between Akhtar and Kamran Tessori. The Rabbita Committee session will be held after three days, it was announced in the meeting.
  12. ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Wednesday expressed its annoyance at Director-General National Accountability Bureau (NAB)?s performance, saying the bureau has never completed inquiry in any case in six months. Justice Faez Isa and Justice Dost Muhammad said this in a hearing held in a case against former Balochistan Food Minister Asfandyar Kakar, whose bail application was approved today. ?Naeem Mangi was facing inquiries till yesterday; now he has become a hero,? said Justice Dost Mohammad. ?How about we make him [Mangi] a suspect in the case,? he added. A three-member bench heard the case against Kakar, who has has been alleged to be involved in corruption worth Rs2 billion and disappearance of five million sacks of wheat during his term in the previous government's tenure.
  13. KARACHI: Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah expressed his displeasure at the failure of municipal officers to fulfill their responsibilities to clear water-logged roads and minimise rain-related incidents in the provincial capital. Chairing a meeting here, Shah said that the city?s Yousuf Goth and other areas were submerged in water during the recent torrential rains because of the "laziness" of the District Municipal Corporations. He also directed Minister for Local Government Jam Khan Shoro to take action against ?thieves? and submit a report in this regard. The chief minister expressed his displeasure over the performance of the Karachi Water & Sewerage Board and said that the department failed to do its work despite having a workforce of 12,000 employees. Local government officials also updated Shah about their respective departments? performance during rain. At least 13 dead as rain batters Karachi; Army contingents deployed for assistance The highest rainfall was recorded in Nazimabad at over 130mm At least 13 people, including four children, died after the metropolis was battered with heavy rainfall on Thursday which saw Army contingents being deployed to assist in rescue efforts. A breach in Thado dam, a rainwater retention dam situated on Malir river, flooded two nearby villages and Saadi Town. The situation prompted the deployment of Pakistan Army and Sindh Rangers contingents to carry out rescue efforts in the affected localities. The northern areas of Karachi were the worst affected, with rainwater flooding homes and other structures in low-lying areas. The downpour not only resulted in closing down of around 90 per cent of the city's markets but also led to a halt in traffic on the link road of National Highway and Super Highway as the Goods' Transport Association decided its vehicles would stay put till the situation improves. Traders suffered losses worth Rs100 million, according to All Karachi Trade Union Chairman Ateeq Mir. Blaming the government, he said that the losses occurred due to the local government being woefully unprepared.
  14. Prime Minister Narendra Modi walks to speak with the media as he arrives at the parliament house to attend the first day of the budget session, in New Delhi, India, January 31, 2017. Photo: Reuters NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will appoint nine new ministers to his cabinet on Sunday in an effort to speed up development work as he comes under pressure to deliver on election promises in the final 20 months of his term. Economic growth slowed to its weakest pace in three years, data this week showed, and promises to boost manufacturing and create tens of thousands of jobs for one of the world?s youngest workforce have failed to take off. Modi is also facing renewed criticism for his shock move to ban high-value bank notes last year after central bank data showed that 99 per cent of the abolished currency was back in the system. Four of the nine new ministers in the Modi cabinet are retired bureaucrats including K J Alphons, known as Delhi?s demolition man for launching a crackdown on illegal structures in the capital despite facing intense political pressure. Another is a former police commissioner and a diplomat, reflecting Modi?s faith in accomplished bureaucrats to deliver on his goals rather than politicians who are often untested in governance. India no longer fastest-growing large economy following demonetisation: IMF India?s growth slowed to 6.6% last year from 7.6% in 2015, while the Chinese economy grew by 6.7% in 2016 He has often dealt directly with officials especially on his big initiatives such as developing 100 smart cities, bank accounts for millions of citizens and cleaning up the country, bypassing the ministers. A senior bureaucrat in Modi?s office said the selection of new ministers was based on ?passion, proficiency, professional and political acumen? to deliver on his vision of ?a new India?. Six ministers were dropped, some to take over party duties and others for poor performance, the official said. There was no immediate word on whether Modi would appoint a new defence minister since Finance Minister Arun Jaitley is holding that charge and has said he would like to focus on the economic management. Elections are due in 2019 and Modi remains the front runner. Newly appointed President Ram Nath Kovind will administer the oath of office to the new ministers at 10:30 IST (0500 GMT) his office said in a Twitter post.

  16. Sanjay Dutt is finally making a comeback after a hiatus of 3 years (he was last seen in Aamir Khan's ‘PK'), so our excitement and expectations have been at a pinnacle since the day it was announced that he would be a part of the film, ‘Bhoomi'. Today, the trailer of that much-awaited movie has just been released and Sanju Baba plays a fierce and unforgiving possessive father who can't stand his daughter being harmed by anyone. The trailer of Omung Kumar's directorial venture is brilliant, with the ruggedness, thrill, emotions and vindictiveness kept intact in each frame. In fact, some of the dialogue is incredibly arresting. © T-Series This heart-wrenching trailer intrigues our senses while compelling one to question the attitude that men and society have towards women. The movie touches base with the life of Arun (Sanjay Dutt), his selfless love for his daughter, ‘Bhoomi' played by Aditi Rao Hydari and the extreme steps he takes in order to protect her dignity and life. How a happy family is torn apart and left to suffer and fight against some miscreants and the society weaves the rest of the plot. Check out the trailer here. Apparently, Sanjay Dutt chose this date to release the trailer because it coincides with his daughter, Trishala's, birthday. He might be involved in a lot of controversy and criminal cases personally, but professionally, he has evolved into a great actor and this seems to be one of his most intense and emotional performances so far. The movie slated to be released on September 22 and will see Shekhar Suman and TV actor Sharad Kelkar in pivotal roles as well.

  20. There's nothing that can’t be achieved with the right will power and determination. Twenty-nine-year-old Mandy Harvey lost her hearing ability at the age of 18 due to a disorder. But that didn't stop her from pursuing her dream and hobby - singing. You'd think how could a person continue to learn singing and croon when they can't hear. That’s also probably what the judges and audience at ‘America’s Got Talent’ thought when Mandy stood on stage to sing. © YouTube But if you love something dearly, and put in all your heart into it, even the universe bows down in front of you. Mandy had been learning how to sing from a very early age. But at the age of 18, she got what started as an ear infection but was actually a connective tissue disorder and left her completely deaf. © YouTube She didn’t give up. She continued to learn music and sing. Much of it was through muscle memory, visual tuners and vibrations. It’s only natural that she chose to sing a song called ‘Try’ that she wrote herself. Watch her and try not to tear up:

  23. When it comes to bodybuilding, the first thought that comes in our mind is an attractive physique. If we conduct a survey, asking men why they lift weights, the following could be the possible answers: · To drop body fat · To have six packs · To pack on big muscles · To look macho in clothes · To attract girls and have better *** · To be strong in real life Myth: *** And Ejaculation Makes You Lose Strength © Thinkstock The reasons are subjective. One of the lesser talked about benefits of religious weight training is ‘better performance while having ***’. However, there has been a myth floating for ages that you should not have *** if you are into bodybuilding or any strength based sports like wrestling or so. The reason they support this statement with is that you lose strength when you ejaculate. Well, this purely idiotic! There are several research papers available today which substantiates that *** or orgasm does not lead to any strength or muscle loss. The only thing that happens immediately after *** is that the T levels drop for a VERY short span of time and then ultimately, spike back up. As a matter of fact, *** and muscle building have a very positive relation with each other. For a lowdown on how bodybuilding can affect our *** life and vice a versa, checkout these interesting facts: *** And Natural Bodybuilding 1. Muscle building and our libido, are both determined by the male *** hormone i.e. testosterone. Therefore, more the testosterone production, better the libido aka *** drive and better will be your ability to pack on muscle mass. 2. Weight training improves testosterone production. On the other hand, a sexually active individual will already have a healthy amount of testosterone floating in his body. As a result, the more sexually active you are, the better are your chances to pack on muscles. Here is an interesting study conducted by Fox Sports Network (FSN) sport science © ESPN FSN Sports Science conducted a study to determine how *** before or after a workout may affect performance. Sports Science producers sought the help of Chris Byrd, a heavyweight boxing champion who was asked to refrain from *** for whole one week. After one week, his fitness performance was scrutinized. The levels of testosterone, strength of the legs, and the punching power were also recorded. Later, Byrd was allowed to have *** and was requested to return for a performance testing after the ***. *** before workout = Better Performance At Gym Floor © Aworldofboxing According to analysis reports by FSN Sport Science, the cardiovascular health of Bryd remained constant before and just after ***. Surprisingly, the strength of his legs and punching power improved and the levels of testosterone also increased by 20%. Some experts claim that *** before workout can enhance the performance of an individual and it does not have any negative impact on strength or the hypertrophy. Well, what your take on this?

  24. You can forget everything that you are reading on the Internet today because now there is a condom that markets itself as the “world’s first smart condom”. It’s basically a cock ring that you can fit over any condom available today, and this ring can apparently track your progress, your performance and also detect diseases like syphilis and chlamydia. This cock ring first surfaced in July 2016 and it is finally available to pre-order from British Condoms for INR 4923. There is no word when it will be available and its release date is shrouded in mystery. © BCCL The condom is dubbed as the “i.Con” and has the ability to track your speed, duration of ***, “average thrust velocity” and the frequency of your sessions. These statistics can be tracked by the i.Con app which will give an insight or two about your performance, it will even stack you up against the best, which kind of makes me feel uncomfortable. Basically the i.Con ring will probably answer all doubts you’ve ever had about your sexual performances. The ring is going to work much like a Fitbit where you can charge it with a micro-USB charger and it will even have a one-year warranty (lol). British Condoms, the company behind the “cock ring” assures users that all data will be kept anonymous, however, you can share your statistics with your friends if you wish to. Here’s hoping the ring doesn’t get hacked by those Russians as it can lead to some very uncomfortable situations.
  25. After stunning people with their phenomenal work, Amitabh Bachhan and Ram Gopal Verma are back in action with the third installment of ‘Sarkar’ and by the looks of the trailer, we feel that it’s going to be a treat to watch. With an insanely huge and brilliant star cast, ‘Sarkar 3’ is surely going to rule 2017 in the action-crime-thriller genre. © Eros Now There were many elements or should we say characters that have not only rendered us speechless but also left us wondering how versatile these actors are. After showing his villainous side in the movie ‘Kaabil’, Ronit Roy has yet again set the stage on fire with his bad guy attitude. However, what really shook us was Yami Gautam’s bold look and performance. Of all the movies she has acted in, almost all of them have usually been mellow and portrayed her in a vulnerable light. Seeing her give tough competition to such stalwarts, at least this time around she won’t just be sitting be on the sidelines. © Eros Now This movie will also have actor Amit Sadh, who plays Sarkar’s grandson. With some looks to kill and fighting shoulder to shoulder with the villain, he has thrown away his chocolate boy image and we are simply falling in love with him. Actors Manoj Bajpai and Jackie Shroff too were at their intense best; however we couldn’t get to see much from their end, which is really driving us crazy. Watch the trailer here. Amitabh Bachchan in and as SARKAR in SARKAR 3 Trailer.... May the POWER be with you... https://t.co/ZuUM8b0lJa — Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) 1 March 2017 Ram Gopal Verma has already set the stage on fire and this trailer has made it harder for us to wait for the movie to hit the screens. It is slated to release on April 7.
