  1. Should you wear a lifting belt while lifting weights? Well, this has been an age old question in the world of lifting and you will find two camps with differing opinions on the subject. The Safety Camp: Who say that wearing a belt makes lifting safe by reducing risks of injury. The Ego Camp: Who say that wearing a belt makes your core weak and the true test of strength is lifting beltless. However, both camps do not address the real use of a lifting belt i.e. -Performance. In this article, I will be talk about injury risks, core activation and most importantly, the performance aspect of lifting with & without a belt. © YouTube Safety & Injury Risks To date there has been no study that directly compares injury risks while lifting with belt or beltless. However, there have been quite a few studies on industrial workers who wear a belt while lifting heavy objects. They observe little to no benefit wearing a belt though. Also, it is a no brainer that you still can get injured wearing a belt if your technique is flawed (excess spinal flexion). Thus, wearing a belt for pure safety reasons does not make much sense. Core Activation Opposed to the popular belief that 'wearing a belt decreases core involvement and makes it weak', studies have actually observed greater core activation when lifting with a belt strapped on and tight enough. Effect On Deadlifts â In one study consisting of untrained individuals, non-significant increase in rectus abdominis (six pack muscles) activity and reduction in external oblique activation was observed when wearing a belt. â Another study consisting D-1 football players lifting 12RM weights had the similar findings but the difference did reach a significant level. Effects On Squats © YouTube â One study consisting of untrained individuals found a significant (54%) higher rectus abdominis activity and a marginal (14%, non-significant) lower external oblique activation when wearing a belt Thus, it is inconceivable that squatting and dead-lifting with a belt 'makes your core weak' or prevents torso strength gains. Performance Effects Training Loads Getting down to brass tacks, lifting with a belt does increase performance in the gym. It is hard to say by how much but at least a 5-15% increase in 1 RM is noted with individuals used to wearing a belt. Bar Speed Since wearing a belt increases your strength you can also lift any given load at a faster rate than beltless. â One study with experienced lifters found that lifters took about 6% less time to complete squats when wearing a belt. â Another study with experienced lifters (avg. beltless 1RM of 156 kg) found about a 9% reduction in time to complete the lift when performing squats with 90% 1RM. More Reps © YouTube Wearing a belt does allow you to get extra 1-3 reps per set. This is a great thing if your goals are purely aesthetics and hypertrophy as a major component of muscle hypertrophy is training volume and extra reps, do increase it. How does wearing a belt make these performance enhancements? In a nutshell, the primary effect of wearing a belt is increased intra abdominal pressure (IAP). In deadlifts and squats IAP is increased by 15% and 30-40% respectively when wearing a belt. Increased IAP increases total body tension allowing you to move weights more efficiently. Who Should Not Wear A Belt? * Since wearing a belt increases IAP, people with blood pressure issues should lifts weights without a belt. As wearing a belt makes sudden spikes in blood pressure. * Athletes like footballers, basketball players and fighters who are training for strength should not wear a belt. Because they will not be wearing a belt while competing so they should not wear a belt while training as well. Who Should Definitely Wear A Belt? If you are a healthy individual with no blood pressure issues and your goal is to build maximum strength or maximum muscle. You should definitely wear a belt unless you have a problem with benefitting from two of the most potent factors i.e. intensity and training volume. Wearing a belt allows you to lift more weights for a given no. of reps and get more reps for a given weight. Should You Wear A Belt During Warm-Up Sets? Yes! If you are going to wear a belt for your main working sets. You should also wear it during your warm-up sets as there is a difference in breathing patterns in lifting with and without belt. Summing it up, a belt will benefit in long term strength and muscle gains.

  2. Without doubt, the most legendary boxing champion ever, Muhammad Ali was one of the greatest sports icons in history. Out of the 61 fights he competed in throughout his career, he won 56, including a whopping 37 knockouts. Flamboyant and cocky, Ali was supremely confident and vocal of his achievements, something he justified with each win. Like he said, “It's not bragging if you can back it up.” Fierce in the boxing ring and feisty out of it, Ali was more than just a boxing star. Born as Cassius Clay, he chose a name closer to his heart, discarding what he called his 'slave name'. Not one to be afraid of speaking the truth and doing what's right, he openly opposed the Vietnam war and refused to serve in the US Army, as a result of which he faced a 3-year ban from professional boxing. A champion not only in the boxing ring but also outside of it, a role model for every dreamer who was told he wasn't enough, Ali inspired many and continues to do so. Here are a few quotes by the man that prove impossible is just an opinion, not a fact.

  4. COAS Gen Bajwa in Sri Lanka - Photo ISPR Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa reached Sri Lanka on Tuesday for a two official visit on the invitation of his counterpart. During the visit, General Bajwa remarked that Pakistan and Sri Lanka were probably the only countries which understand what it takes to defeat the menace of terrorism. COAS held meetings with the Sri Lankan military leadership including the Chief of Defence Staff, the Chiefs of all three services. Upon arrival, General Bajwa was given guards of honour at the headquarters of all three services. The COAS also visited the Command and Staff College Sri Lanka and interacted with faculty and staff. The leadership of Sri Lankan expressed their gratitude and appreciation for Pakistan's unequivocal moral and material support during Sri Lanka's successful war on terror. They also appreciated successes of Pakistan Army in ongoing War on Terror. COAS highlighted that having cleared troubled areas from terrorists of all hues and colours, Pakistan is now going after their disorganised residual presence under Operation Radd-ul-Fasad. During the meetings, various new initiatives and ongoing projects were discussed to improve the existing defence ties between the two brotherly countries.
  5. Arguably one of the greatest tennis players of his time, Roger Federer made a solid start to his Australian Open title defence after brushing Aljaz Bedene aside in straight sets. Despite playing down talk of being labelled as the man to beat in this year's first Grand Slam, Federer gave a stark reminder why many can't look beyond him by putting Bedene to the sword in sets of 6-3, 6-4, 6-3. While he looked impressive in his latest win, it's a stunt he pulled off during the recently-concluded Hopman Cup in Australia that has taken social media by storm. Federer and his partner Belinda Bencic were representing Switzerland in the mixed doubles semi-final against the United States' Jack Sock and CoCo Vandeweghe when out of nowhere, the Swiss ace pulled off one of the most epic stunts in his playing career. Leading by a set, Federer decided to have a little fun as he served to Sock. In what initially looked normal, soon turned into a funny spectacle as both Federer and Sock completely usurped the game from their respective partners while playing a little set of their own. Men will be men.... pic.twitter.com/13dsIh3PVS — Rishi Bagree ð®ð³ (@rishibagree) January 13, 2018 It would have been a usual affair in a single's clash, but hey? It was mixed doubles. Taking charge of the court, both the male stars exchanged shot after shot in an unending rally while their respective female partners on court watched helplessly. Soon, both Bencic and Vandeweghe lost hope and while waiting to be passed the serves, they decided to sit down in exasperation. © Reuters However, that didn't deter Federer or Sock who continued with their rally of shots, seemingly oblivious of the women players on the court. Soon, Vandeweghe walked out of the court to sit on the players' bench and Bencic, too, followed suit. Of course, in the spirit of fun, the two men ignored their partners while continuing with their tweener shots and behind the back shots to leave everyone in splits. The video of the hilarious rally has turned out to be a huge hit amongst the fans on social media. From being slammed by feminists to being called 'typical men', the video has garnered all sorts of reactions on Twitter. Lmao men's behavior wrapped in one video! ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ð¥ð¤£ð¤£ — DAVID IS THE NAME™ (@TheeKing_Dave) January 14, 2018 It's a good sign!!! “Women don't stress yourselves, we got this”. — عثÙا٠ÙاÙا٠(@othmanasquare) January 14, 2018 I am sure their penises grew an inch, permanently. pic.twitter.com/xrgxlenawU — ck (@creativedino) January 14, 2018 ðð pic.twitter.com/449vlHHGaI — EyadSo (@Eyados93) January 14, 2018 Feminist after seeing this pic.twitter.com/pu6StgPjI1 — ryan (@Ryannnn94) January 14, 2018 They legit walked off ðð — Adetayo (@T_choc) January 15, 2018 This is so unfair ð£ I'm glad both women walked off the court the way they did...it made a point without making trouble — Dark Horse (@whimsicalgod) January 14, 2018 As long as the women didn't feel undermined during the game, I'm good. — Rebeqah Abraham (@RebeqahAbe) January 15, 2018 For anyone who has an iota of common sense, the incident will come across as nothing more than some mid-match fun. A classic case of boys will be boys, if you will. There was no harm, no foul. Thus, labelling the video of the players' behaviour as sexist or misogynist would be merely a case of seeing smoke where there's no fire.

  8. There is no doubt about the fact that 'Friends' is one of the most popular and loved shows across the world. And even if you don't hold the show in high regard, it is impossible that you don't know the names of the main characters. The show ended in 2004 but fans across the world binge watch it till date. And even after so many years, it never fails to leave us with a smile on our faces and allows us to escape from our mundane lives for a little while. No wonder it was recently voted as the 'best sitcom in history'. @ Warner Bros Television However, only recently, some die-hard fans pointed out a few errors in the show which most of us would have missed. There are tons of continuity errors in 'Friends' and now since we know about them, a lot of things actually do not make sense. First and foremost, the most obvious errors involve the age and the birthdays of the characters. Throughout season's three to five, Ross is listed as being 29. Now, this would have made sense if all those seasons were set in one year but that is not the case as the Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes prove the passage of years. Does he have some secret powers or what? The Rossatron is also a time traveller? Whaaaa? Then in season one, Joey is called the youngest of the group however in season 7, it's implied that Rachel is the last one in the group to turn 30, implying that she is the youngest. Now the following errors regarding mixed-up birthdays would require the skills of Sherlock Holmes. Just kidding. It just requires you to take extra notice. In one episode, Ross tells Gunther that his birthday is in December, but in another one, he tells Joey his birthday is 18th October. Watch this video to untangle the puzzle yourself: We'd love to have two birthdays too, but unfortunately, that isn't possible. Now, moving on to the origin stories. In the pilot episode, Monica introduces Rachel to everyone including Chandler. But in season 10, in a flashback episode, it is shown that Rachel and Chandler actually kissed when Chandler was in college. @ Warner Bros Television Then comes into question Ross's virginity. In the first season, he reveals the only person he's ever slept with is his ex-wife Carol. But in season seven episode 4, Chandler tells the gang that Ross slept with the cleaning lady from their college dorm. We might let this one slide because maybe Ross was just embarrassed to admit this. There are a few other errors here and there, but they are too trivial to be talked about. However, after knowing all these, we do feel the need to go back and watch the series all over again and see where we missed out. Or perhaps, this is just another excuse to binge-watch. Whatever, FRIENDS forever!
  9. Not very long ago, in the ever-competitive world of cricket, the Indian cricket team was full of so-called nice guys who were well-behaved, rarely sledged and just believed in going about their business. However, the current crop of the Indian side is nowhere close to their predecessors. With Virat Kohli at the helm, Team India has adopted an aggressive approach to their game, tackling fire with fire. This team is not afraid to express themselves, never shy away from mincing words and that exuberance finds its way in the manner they play the sport. Currently engrossed in an exciting battle with South Africa, the chatter caught on the stump-mic is a testimony to India's evolution in the sport. If the funny conversation between Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar at Newlands spoke about their intent, Kohli's exchange with Murali Vijay where the Indian captain spoke, rattling the Proteas by batting till the end (sounds completely different in Hindi) makes the case stronger. Stump mic catches Virat abusing 'Sham tak khelenge inki Gaand phat jayegi' #SAvIND #SAvsIND pic.twitter.com/8q3crsmZuF — Khurram Siddiquee (@iamkhurram12) January 14, 2018 Similarly, in the second innings of the 2nd Test in Centurion, Kohli and Pandya were involved in a clever technique to negate the South African pace attack which was running riot with their away movement. With both Rohit Sharma and Parthiv Patel back in the hut, Pandya joined his captain at the crease and it's needless to say that India couldn't afford another dismissal. While Kohli was able to read the opposition bowlers with ease, his partner Pandya at the other end was seemingly second-guessing them. This is when Kohli's contribution, apart from his crucial innings to his side, came to the fore. Kohli has seen his batting partners struggle against the moving ball, so he ensured he let Pandya know which side the ball would reverse. If the shiny side was away from the batsman, meaning the ball would reverse away from Pandya, Kohli had his bat in the left hand while he was at the non-striker's end, indicating that it would swing further to the offside. When the bowler got one to reverse in, Kohli would switch the bat to his right hand, giving Pandya an early advantage of knowing that it would come in to him. Part 1: This is interesting!! Kohli-Pandya devise a mysterious plan to encounter reverse swing via foot gestures pic.twitter.com/eDC2B4NWxV — anshul kothari (@slimshady_ansh) January 14, 2018 In the 60th over, when Vernon Philander came into the attack, Kohli was once again seen informing Pandya what the South African was going to bowl at him. And, their clever exchange was all captured on the stump-mic. Part 2: VK makes a change in his mysterious strategy for a last second change in seam position pic.twitter.com/pSGSidP218 — anshul kothari (@slimshady_ansh) January 14, 2018 Kohli: Yahan pe change kiya (He changed it here). Pandya: Andar ke liye leke hi bhaagaa tha (He ran in with the one that would originally come in). Kohli: Jo leke niklega agar change karega toh uska opposite hai (The side of the ball he runs in with, if he changes, it will go the opposite way). Pandya: Main bataaun aapko? (Should I tell you on spotting?). Kohli: Nahin nahin, mujhe dikha, main bataa raha hun.. (No, no.. I picked it, I am just telling you). © BCCL However, despite their brilliant plan to keep the Proteas at bay, there was one rare slip up. On the first delivery of the 61st over, Kohli had his bat in the left hand which meant that Morne Morkel was going to bowl one that moves away. But, Morkel cleverly bowled the one that slid in. Thankfully, for India, Pandya stood his ground and played it off his guard. With the potential danger of a dismissal averted, both Kohli and Pandya immediately got together after the ball and had a laugh about it.
  10. Shahid Kapoor had epitomised #outfitgoals for us in 2017. Be it the funky casuals he is known for, or the tailored to perfection red carpet looks, he's got it right every time, and we have noticed and noted it all. Which is why whenever he starts off with a new trend, we can't help but pay attention to that. The latest one, however, has confused us no end. Take a look and we're sure you'll agree. © Viral Bhayani When it comes to the bizarre and weird, in terms of trends, we usually just rely on Ranveer (and he delivers, consistently, thank you very much). This time, however, Shahid seems to have taken it upon himself to do that and jumped right in. Now, knowing the Shahid we all are familiar with, we'd have said that the poor thing probably was in a hurry and forgot to tie up the drawstrings of his track pants, but we are not doing that. There is a reason. © Viral Bhayani Last year, Shahid was spotted pulling off the same stunt at an event. He was dressed in all black, with a super cool ripped, distressed overall look - but all we could focus on were his long-ass white drawstrings that he chose to hang loose. We were equally confused then, but now we don't think it was an accident after all, nope. Shahid's newest obsession is the 'Nada'. Yes, people, it has happened. The latest entrant in the 2018 lookbook, is the protector of the sanctity of the good old Pyjama - the 'Nada'. © Viral Bhayani Why, though? We are compelled to ask. Not that it's a style blunder. Hell, we even think it has the potential to be the next big thing, but that is hardly doing anything as far as quenching our curiosity goes. We wonder what inspired that? He probably did get late the last time (actually scratch that, celebrities don't let 'getting late' come in the way of the way they dress, duh). He clearly just didn't bother tying it up, and looked at the mirror, and thought to himself, "Huh, interesting. Let's give you a taste of the limelight today, Nada. Not too shabby for me, nope!" © Viral Bhayani Getting past the drawstrings, though, we love his comfy AF airport look. Athleisure at its finest, we say. The fitted white T-shirt paired with the black track pants with the bold white stripe is effortless. The way Shahid has just flung over his matching track jacket over the fly AF leather sling bag (that we love) is a lesson in how to accessorize your look with your extra clothes. The white sneakers, the black watch, the black headband and the tinted sunnies - all of it looks like a part of a kit. © Viral Bhayani You know what, Shahid? If you want to bring the 'Nada' to the forefront, go ahead. We have had our reservations, but you have shown us that you can make it work, and we are sold. We are keeping an eye out to find out who else embraces this trend.

  12. If there's a hot potato topic that you're better off avoiding if you hate Twitter flame wars, it's got to be Aadhar. India's biometric-based 'universal identification' was first conceived sometime in 2009, and in less than a decade, it seems to have become one of the most controversial projects ever attempted by our government. These days, if you hear of Aadhar in the news (and you do, a lot), it's usually for creating more trouble in the lives of those it was supposed to benefit. Why Aadhar? © Twitter Why do we even need a universal ID when it's not even a proof of citizenship? The government initially proposed Aadhar in the hope of improving the efficiency of welfare schemes – that a biometric-based ID should, theoretically, reduce corruption and diversion of benefits away from those who are eligible. And which government (or banking system) doesn't like an ID that would be difficult to fake and would enable a more rigorous 'Know Your Customer' process? Other uses that have since emerged include identity verification at airports (just getting off the ground) to reducing tax evasion. All boring, practical stuff, we know, but that's usually the case with the most critical bits, isn't it? The Tech That (Apparently) Makes Aadhar Secure But hang on, we hear you say. If the Aadhar is a one-ID-to-rule-em-all thing-amajing, won't things get worse if it's not as secure? Think of it, we all know how easy it is to get a driving license, isn't it? But that's why the Unique Identification Authority of India, which manages the Aadhar project, went in for biometric authentication: Fingerprint authentication and even iris scanning was hailed as a '100% guaranteed way of ensuring that people couldn't fake this as easily as other government IDs. National IDs Are Often More Trouble Than They're Worth © BCCL India's not the first country to look at a universal ID for its citizenry. The US has its famous Social Security Number system, which has suffered its own share of controversies over identity theft (the US SSN doesn't use biometric information and it's easy to steal someone's identity if you know their 9-digit SSN). Meanwhile, in the mid-2000s, the UK had okayed a biometric-based national ID but later scrapped the project - it was turning out to be too expensive, while privacy and human rights campaigners said it could have many unforeseen consequences. However, there's at least one national ID project that seems to have worked as intended - Estonia's digital ID system. Aadhar Has Always Been Plagued With Controversy Reports of how the Aadhar has made life difficult for Indian citizens keep cropping up every few days - Insurance companies have been accused of refusing coverage, people have allegedly starved after being denied access to subsidised food, some hospitals are reportedly demanding Aadhar cards before admitting patients, leprosy patients have missed out on treatment after authentication errors, while many citizens have complained of being locked out of their accounts by banks and mobile companies. Meanwhile, people have managed to get Aadhar cards for their dogs (no, we're absolutely serious), while some cards have photos of chairs and trees! If you read the news, you'd naturally assume our Aadhar project is as epic a fail as anything the Internet as seen. And you might not be that far off the mark. A Data Security And Privacy Fiasco In The Making? © Twitter The latest controversy to hit Aadhar is whether our data is safe enough (in fairness, people have been asking this ever since the project was started). Recently, a journalist from The Tribune managed to get access to the Aadhar database by paying just Rs. 500 for an account used by Aadhar data collection agents. She also discovered that there could be around one lakh people with illegal access to this database! While the UIDAI has denied the allegations (and has for some reason, filed a complaint against the journalist who uncovered this scandal), it does make you think if our data is really safe. Even if biometrics has not been compromised, it's a safety, security and privacy nightmare in the making. But there's more - French infosec researcher Eliot Alderson says the Android mAadhar app (which you might have installed on your phone) stores sensitive data on your device without really locking it down - if you lose your phone, a savvy hacker could dig out stuff. Big Brother Is Watching © Anation Don't accuse us of going all 'Black Mirror' on you, but there's loads that can go wrong with a faulty national ID system. What if the biometrics has also been compromised - will that enable any scammer to fake your identity to take out a loan? You can't exactly change your fingerprints, can you? Or consider what happens if a bug (or even a malicious act by a government official) gets you 'locked out' from daily life - bank accounts frozen, phones blocked, not allowed to get on to a flight and so on. And finally, there's the simple expectation of privacy - by linking all your activities using a single ID, it's possible for someone with access to the right data to build up a picture of your daily life - where you go, what you buy, the apps you use, the websites you visit… You might be tempted to dismiss this as an exaggeration, but what if a bug in the system gives this access to 'cybercriminals'? To make matters worse, you, as a citizen, can't even complain - the Aadhar Act makes the government and the UIDAI immune from prosecution! What Can You Do For starters, lock your biometrics on the Aadhar website - this makes sure that no one can carry our biometric-based authentication till you go unlock these. Apart from this, some say you should hold off on linking Aadhar to services unless absolutely necessary - You might still need to do so for a financial service but there's no need to use your Aadhar as ID elsewhere. And finally, there's some good news (took their time, didn't they?) from the UIDAI, which is working on a Virtual ID - a 'temporary Aadhar' number that can be used for verification without having to reveal your actual Aadhar number.
  13. Every day we are reminded of the power of social media. Sometimes it's good, and sometimes not so much. Anything and anyone can go viral, and sometimes it turns out to be a blessing in disguise, and that's what happened to 12-year-old Syrian refugee, Muhammad Hussein. The young boy was captured staring longingly through the window of a local gym in Turkey, and soon the picture went viral just because it was that heart-breaking for people. The viral picture also showed that the 12-year old worked as a shoe shiner, and it turned out the picture was taken in the Adiyaman province, and was clicked by one of the gym's clients. © twitter Since it went viral in Turkey, as soon as the gym owner spotted the emotional picture, he posted on Twitter asking where they can find the boy. And soon enough, Muhammad, who fled the war in Syria, was found and was offered a free lifetime membership by the gym. What an incredible gesture! See, humanity isn't dead. © twitter The owner, Engin DoÄan, told local news, “A boy, looking through the gym window, wearing slippers in the middle of winter and carrying his bagpack… Our aim was to find him and offer him a lifetime membership here.” And, then DoÄan gave everyone the best news ever – Muhammad is one of their members now. DoÄan owns the gym with Mustafa Küçükkaya and Dicle Oma. © twitter Küçükkaya added, “It affected me very much because we came from nothing and we did not have such a gym in our time. The Turkish people are very sensitive about this issue, I am very touched, I think we are doing something very good.” While talking to a local Turkish news agency, the young Syrian boy said, “He found me and helped me,” he said. “I had always dreamed of losing weight and now I believe I can do that by working out.” What a happy ending! The story touched a lot of people online and everyone was just happy for the little kid who finally got what he wanted with the help of the internet. Sometimes media shows just how powerful it is and how big of a heart the world has. The world is pretty messed up but images like these give us hope to move forward. — Oldmomma (@oldmommatajuri) January 9, 2018 It does go a long way. Why isn't the western world this nice? A simple smile and/or gesture goes a very long way. — Micoah (@micoaht) January 9, 2018 Good people, everywhere. Brought tears to my eyes. Too many good people on this earth. — Kódi (@IamPhreedah) January 9, 2018 All of us right now, probably –
  14. Everybody wants a sneak peak into the life of billionaire entrepreneur and youth icon, Elon Musk. Don't you? He is presently managing SpaceX, SolarCity, Tesla, Neuralink, and The Boring Company. Talk about multi-tasking! Whether it is his dream of colonizing Mars or building one of the fastest cars in the world, Musk never seems to disappoint. Most of us know about his professional accomplishments and amazing companies he has built over the years, but barely anyone has seen what goes in his personal life. He often uses Twitter and Instagram for different purposes and occasions and that is exactly what gives us a glimpse into what goes on in his life. Here is a list of such moments of success, failure, happiness, childhood and family which he has shared on various social media platforms. 1. Elon Musk on his cousin's farm in Canada at age 17, wearing a hat on a hat, holding that sweet hammer. On my cousin's farm in Canada at age 17, wearing a hat on a hat. Check out my sweet hammer...

  15. We have all heard about Jack Ma's incredible rags to riches story and how he conquered the internet market in China. The founder of the Alibaba Group is one of the world's most influential businessmen and philanthropists. He is known for expounding his philosophy of business, and is a leading innovation visionary. As of today, his total fortune adds up to $48.3bn. Do you know how much he earned as a school teacher in his early days? He would only make $12 a month at a local university. That's a huge leap, in terms of being successful. He was rejected from a dozen universities like Harvard and from American companies like KFC as well but he never stopped and always believed that one day ithings would change. Today, he is the CEO of one of the biggest internet companies in the world. That's his perseverance and life story right there. Here is a list of famous quotes by Jack Ma to help inspire you and take your business to the next level. 1. On ethics © MensXP 2. On teamwork © MensXP 3. On the right cause © MensXP 4.

  16. If you're not paying for it, you're the product. Don't roll your eyes or accuse us of being paranoid. That oft-repeated aphorism is actually a rather apt description of our social-networked, digital-everything age. From Google search to Instagram and Twitter, freeloading users (that'd be all of us, this writer included) aren't customers. We're the product - to be followed, examined, analysed and divvied up into silos before being sold to marketers. Of course, this has its benefits - we get to use a lot of neat apps and services for free. But at what cost? Google usually gets a bad reputation for being an omniscient, omnipresent overlord that probably knows more about us than even our closest family and friends. But the search giant isn't the only behemoth that wields so much power. Facebook, our modern-day nukkad, a drawing room for the digital age, has just as much insight into who we are. No, not who we like to imagine ourselves as, but who we really are, unvarnished and untainted by facade we put up when in public. Facebook *Knows* That ex you sometimes look up on Facebook; the guilty-pleasure Bollywood gossip page you read; the furtive searches for entertainment stars you wouldn't want your grandma to find out about; the hate-spewing politician you'd never publicly admit to voting for; the 'Like' on your friends' posts; and where you live, where you hang out including the articles you click on - all of that gives Facebook an astonishing level of insight into who you are. And as a corollary, it helps Facebook roll out ads for products and services you're more likely to be interested in. Ever wondered how a simple visit to a web page, or a Facebook search, or a look at a product on sale at your favourite online store results in ads for similar and competing products - ads that follow you around Facebook? That's also Facebook's ad-targeting at work. How Does Facebook Ad Targeting Work? © social adstool Like we said, anything you do on Facebook's site (or in the app) is used to draw up a picture of you as a customer. Your likes, your interactions with your friends, the check-ins and the searches - it all lets Facebook 'sell' you (albeit in an anonymous form) to a marketer. Clicked 'Like' on a lot of heavy metal band pages? Or on fan pages for a cult movie? Don't be surprised when you find ads selling merchandise cropping up on your timeline. And then there's the magic of how Facebook 'follows' you around the web. Here's just one example: You're searching for, say, a bag for your new DSLR and you check out quite a few online camera gear stores, but can't find anything you like. But behind the scenes, Facebook (and any other ad network you encounter - Google, Amazon…) goes, “Hmmm, this chap might have bought a new DSLR. Why else would he be searching for a camera bag? That means he'd probably buy more camera gear if we can persuade him.” And that's when you start seeing ads for camera accessories, lenses, bags, and pretty much anything camera-related each time you go on Facebook. They've Got The Tools To Track You Really Closely © Facebook If you're an advertiser, Facebook is your best friend. They'll let you choose the target audience for your ads based on location, age, gender, language, app users, page followers, mobile device, the apps people use and what they click on. But wait, there's more - you can even upload 'Customer Lists' with email addresses and phone numbers if you've got a database of your own. And that's not it - Facebook will even let you target 'Lookalike Audiences' - users similar in profile to those in your Customer Lists. But that's all on Facebook. Where things get really spooky (okay, not so much for the savvy user, but a lot of people might think of it as black magic), is when advertisers start using Facebook Pixel - a tracking, measuring and ad targeting tool. In a nutshell, advertisers place a tracking pixel on their website, which lets Facebook (other ad networks do it too) identify you, building up an accurate picture of what you do online. Getting back to our camera store example, an online marketplace you've visited can use Facebook Pixel to track visitors to their website, serving them ads on Facebook - following them around, showing off other gear they might wanna buy, hoping they'd cave in eventually. And finally, there's Facebook's secret weapon - the Facebook Audience Network - an Internet-wide ad network (think of it as a rival to Google's ad network) that serves up ads on sites other than Facebook, letting advertisers extend their reach beyond Facebook and their own websites. For advertisers, it's a way of tracking and targeting users even when they're away from Facebook, for app developers and publishing partners, it's a new revenue stream, and for Facebook, it opens up the Internet beyond their own sites and apps. And as for you, the user, it just makes it even harder to escape Facebook's steely gaze. Try as much as you can to avoid Facebook, but you won't be able to (ditto for Google or Amazon). It's Not All Bad News For The Shopping Addict © Thinkstock For most users, this is a win-win situation. Just like ads on any other platform, allowing your web and app habits to be monetised means you get to use a lot of stuff for free - from ad-supported apps to news websites, you don't have to pay anything to use these not-cheap-to-run services. And of course, as a savvy shopper, you can't be complaining about seeing ads that are more relevant to you - think of the many impulse purchases you have made just by seeing an ad for something that just happens to call out to you. But Still, Creepy Eyes Follow You Around The Web © YouTube But there's a dark side as well to the tremendous reach of Facebook's ad tools - they know all about you, perhaps even more than you'd care to admit to yourself. Yes, the process is automated, you're assigned an ad-tracking ID which keeps your real identity safe, there's no nosy neighbor of yours getting to pore over your sometimes-embarrassing online habits, and it'd be safe to assume that Facebook's developers know a thing or two about keeping your data safe from hackers. Still, you're a rather stout-hearted soul if the prospect of a giant corporation knowing so much about you doesn't unnerve you. That's because all the data Facebook has - from your activities on their sites and in their apps, from tracking pixels, and from your activity on sites that are part of the Facebook Audience Network - can draw up a detailed, highly personal picture of who you are. In fact, a few years ago, researchers at Cambridge University published a study showing how they could draw up an uncannily accurate profile of users simply by analysing their public, open-to-all activities in Facebook. They analysed a dataset of 58,000 volunteers and found that they could use their 'Likes' to predict 'highly sensitive personal attributes' such as 'sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious and political views, personality traits, intelligence, happiness, use of addictive substances, parental separation, age, and gender.' The Cambridge study even “correctly discriminates between homosexual and heterosexual men in 88% of cases, African Americans and Caucasian Americans in 95% of cases, and between Democrat and Republican in 85% of cases”. Spooky, isn't it? Now that's only from your public actions on Facebook. Think of how much can be gleaned about you from the other actions which you assume are private? While your stuff's probably safe with Facebook (or that's what we'd all like to believe), imagine what could happen should there ever be a data breach? Or what if you manage to annoy a powerful government, which somehow manages to arm-twist Facebook into handing over everything it knows about you? You might also find it interesting that a couple of years ago, privacy activists accused Facebook of being in favour of a controversial law from the US - the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, which critics said would encourage data sharing with the government on the pretext of information security (Facebook denied the allegations). Or what happens if you've been searching for something you'd rather not have anyone else know about, but are given away when ads start appearing while checking Facebook at work? But even if nothing untoward happens, do you really feel comfortable knowing Facebook's tracking your every move - not just on its own site, but pretty much all over the web? Fighting Back And Reclaiming Your Privacy © Facebook All's not lost, of course. You can install ad-blockers (like Disconnect or uBlock Origin). But that has its pitfalls - lots of sites completely break, and publishers - who serve up loads of content for free - lose out. Instead, the best option is to head over to Facebook's ad preferences site, where you can see what 'interests' (everything from hobbies to brands) Facebook associates with you, select personal attributes (marital status, employer, school…) which are used to personalise ads, and turn off interest-based ads, and make yourself invisible to the Facebook Audience Network (select 'No' for the Ads on apps and websites off of the Facebook Companies setting).
  17. Known as the Greek God of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan is the exemplary definition of sexy looks, perfectly ripped body, and insane dancing skills. Well, if THAT is not a perfect combination then we don't know what is. While we have some magnificent actors in tinsel town who have sick moves, there are very few who can dance like you have never seen before. And Hrithik fills that slot. (c) Giphy Unlike his competitors, Hrithik has appeared in limited films, but they are always fun to watch. Some might call him an actor who overdoes it when it comes to acting but there is no can who can say otherwise about his moves. Once on the dance floor, Hrithik can give anyone a run for their money. He made his debut with 'Kaho Na Pyar Hai' in 2000 and stole our hearts with his 'Ek Pal Ka Jeena' moves. (c) Giphy There is no millennial who can ever get over that signature move. The groovy song can still be heard playing at clubs and we guarantee you that you will find dozens of people trying to get that style right even till date. In last 17 years, the actor has carved a niche for himself. There are many who have tried to take his place and create a vibe like him (like Harman Baweja......though we don't know where he is nowadays) but no one can take the crown of the Best Dancer title away from Hrithik. As the actor turns 44 today, we have compiled a list of his best dance performances that can literally pull even the laziest person on earth to the dance floor. Ek Pal Ka Jeena – 'Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai' (2001) You Are My Soniya – 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham' (2001) It's Magic – 'Koi Mil Gaya' (2003) Main Aisa Kyun Hoon - Lakshya (2004) Dhoom Again – 'Dhoom 2: Back In Action' (2006) Dil Na Diya – 'Krrish' (2006) Krazzy 4 - Remix – 'Krazzy 4' (2008) Baawre – 'Luck By Chance' (2009) Fire – 'Kites' (2010) Tu Meri – 'Bang Bang' (2013) Bang Bang Title Track- 'Bang Bang' (2013) Mon Amour – 'Kaabil' (2017) Watching Hrithik dance is always a treat. We just wish we could dance even a tiny percentage like him. The actor has 'got the moves like a Jagger' and we are sure he will always surprise his fans with more awesome and fantabulous dance numbers in coming time! Wishing the actor a happy and a rocking year ahead!
  18. After a ruthless winning run in 2017, the rampaging Indian cricket team cut a sorry figure after suffering their first defeat, in what promises to be a challenging year away from home. A 72-run loss against South Africa for the world's no. 1 Test team wasn't the kind of result the Indian fans were hoping for, but many saw coming. A Newlands wicket that heavily favoured the seam bowlers surely fostered compelling cricket - the kind that could match the excitement of ODIs or even T20s. For once, it was great to see the bowlers deciding the game and the batsmen - who usually go hammer and tongs at the ball - ducking for cover. 1st Sunfoil Test India vs South Africa 2018 - Day 4 Fall of Wickets Complete Video Here https://t.co/mPXUYomaOT #INDvSA #IndvsSA #SAvIND #SAvsIND #Philander #ProteaFire #FreedomSeries #SAvIND #SAvsIND #BhuvneshwarKumar #TeamIndia #BBL #NZvPAK #AUSvENG #BBL2017 #IPLRetention #IPL pic.twitter.com/M6HvRIDjI0 — CB007 (@CB007CB) January 9, 2018 In fact, the footage of the fast bowling from both the teams can happily replace adrenaline in hospitals. The fourth day alone featured 18 wickets and six of them went to Vernon Philander who romped to his career-best Test figures before sealing the game for his side. Many feel that the star-studded Indian batting line-up could have done better and they wouldn't be wrong. Apart from Hardik Pandya's breezy knock of 93 runs, none of his teammates were able to post a fifty in Cape Town. In fact, there were ten single-digit scores posted by the Indian batsmen across the two innings. © AP Chasing 208 runs, the Indian batsmen had enough time at their disposal to pull off a crucial win. But, what they didn't have was the patience and skill to negate the fiery bowling attack of Philander, Morne Morkel, Kagiso Rabada who summoned their usual menace in the absence of the injured Dale Steyn. However, despite the loss, the game had plenty of positives for the Virat Kohli brigade. If their batting - which has been India's strong suit for quite some time now - faltered, the sight of a young bowling attack rising to the occasion surely gave the fans something to cheer for. Swinging To Success © AP Ahead of the series, both Kohli and Coach Ravi Shastri reiterated the need of taking 20 wickets in the game to win overseas. And, given India's surprise team selection, the visitors couldn't have started the game any better. Making full use of his increased pace and devious swing, Bhuvneshwar Kumar struck consistently in his first three overs to send the top three South African batsmen back into the hut. A great spell of opening bowling by @BhuviOfficial. One of the most lethal ones I have seen of late. The first session undoubtedly belonged to #TeamIndia. C'mon boys, let's get a few more ;) #SAvIND pic.twitter.com/s9dILKEp23 — Suresh Raina (@ImRaina) January 5, 2018 The likes of Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla were dismissed early on as the Proteas were left reeling at 12/3. While India eventually failed to capitalise on the early breakthrough, it was undeniably the kind of start you'd hope for in an away game. He could have easily notched up a five-for in the first innings, if wasn't for India's shoddy slip fielding. With the opposition batsmen being cautious against him, Bhuvi could only manage the scalps of Keshav Maharaj and Morne Morkel in the second innings. He finished the game with a tally of six wickets at the expense of 120 runs to his name. India might have lost, but Bhuvi's prolific showing promises great things in the next two games. The Devil-May-Care Innings © AP When former greats like Sachin Tendulkar and Lance Klusener tip someone to make a difference, the chances are that they actually do. Kohli's bold decision to include Hardik Pandya had already raised a few eyebrows with many questioning his spot in the playing XI. But, that's nothing new for Pandya. The dashing youngster thrives on challenges and as it turned out, he did make a difference. Hardik Pandya didnt just attack. This was a sensible, cleverly played innings. Has risen many notches as a player. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 6, 2018 With seven wickets gone and just 92 runs on the scoreboard, the Indian cricket team pretty much dead and buried in the first innings. But, just when everyone had given up, Pandya's devil-may-care attitude - reminiscent of AB de Villiers' counter-attack on Day 1 - took the fight to the Proteas in style. The 24-year-old stitched a crucial 99-run partnership with Bhuvi for the eighth wicket to save India early blushes. One's stature as a player increases when one scores overseas and against an attack comprising Steyn, Rabada, Morkel & Philander when everyone else has struggled, Hardik Pandya shows how it is done. Privilege to watch that 93. — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) January 6, 2018 His knock of 93 runs that came off just 95 deliveries included 14 fours and a six. There were upper-cuts, pull shots and brutal down-the-ground strokes which soon got the Proteas on the backfoot. The marauding batsman might have missed his second consecutive Test hundred, but he did his job by propelling India to a face-saving total of 209 runs in the first innings. A Sensational Debut © AP After growing leaps and bounds in limited-overs cricket, Jasprit Bumrah was handed his maiden Test cap in Cape Town. But, just like Pandya, his selection ahead of experienced bowlers like Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav was also criticised. And, just like Pandya, the right-handed seamer proved his naysayers wrong with a brilliant bowling display. The ball that Bumrah bowled to get du Plessis out was one for the ages. Haven't seen an Indian bowler get bounce from a ball as full as that. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) January 8, 2018 With his maiden scalps being Virat Kohli in the IPL, Steve Smith in ODIs and David Warner in T20Is, there was only one way Bumrah could have further glorified that list - by making AB de Villiers his maiden Test wicket. At a time when AB and Faf du Plessis were busy repairing South Africa's innings, the Indian seamer ran through the defence of the former to give India a pivotal breakthrough in the first innings. Insane ball over in #SAvIND from Bumrah. pic.twitter.com/wYNAycOVZw — Robbie B (@cricketpunting) January 8, 2018 In the second innings, Bumrah improved his figures even further after dismissing the South African captain on an absolute cracker of a delivery. In his very next over, the 24-year-old struck again to dismiss Quinton de Kock before he could do much damage. His third wicket was once again De Villiers who was the last one to go back into the hut for the hosts. Bumrah's bowling impressed everyone, even those who doubted his selection. We won't be surprised if he gets selected for the second Test. Who's Missing Dhoni? © AP Ever since MS Dhoni's retirement from the longest version of the game, the Indian selectors and captain have instilled their faith in Wriddhiman Saha to carry on the duties of a wicket-keeper. His availability in the side provides India the luxury of a decent batsman and good wicket-keeper. While his batting skills might have eluded him in Cape Town, Saha surely made amends with his glove-work behind the stumps. His catch to get rid of Morne Morkel in the second innings made him the first-ever Indian wicket-keeper to effect 10 dismissals in a Test match. Most wicket-keeping dismissals in a #Test match: 11 - J Russell v SA, Johannesburg 1995 11 - ABD v PAK, Johannesburg 2013 10 - B Taylor v IND, Mumbai 1980 10 - A Gilchrist v NZ, Hamilton 2000 10 - @Wriddhipops, #INDvSA, CAPE TOWN 2018*#FreedomSeries #SAvIND #India #Cricket — Sam (@TheCricApp) January 8, 2018 In the process, the 33-year-old also went past Dhoni who held the previous best of a record nine dismissals against Australia in Melbourne in 2014. While all of Saha's dismissals came in the form of catches, Dhoni had one stumping to his credit. Saha also reached a personal milestone of taking five catches in each innings of a Test match for the very first time. This was a match to win but enough shown to say India can match up in the series. Bowlers superb today. @BhuviOfficial with the bat also. — Boria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) January 8, 2018 Ahead of the highly-anticipated series, there was a lot of chatter around the Indian team being the strongest side to have ever toured the Rainbow Nation. Barring a mediocre batting display, Team India did look like one and came pretty close to pulling off a win in Cape Town. However, the narrow loss also signalled signs of resurgence and a great contest on cards in the remaining Tests.
  19. Everybody loves a good yarn! Here we talk about the deepest, unsolved and the most twisted conspiracy theories revolving around the lives of some of the most popular world leaders of all time. These theories have given birth to dialogues, analysis, and controversies which have not only shook the faith people kept in their harbingers, in fact, paved way to rational questioning for journalists and investigators. Leaders of the modern era, despite being at the pinnacle of their prevalence, have gone through the cult of critique. Right from the former US President Barack Obama to Russian leader Vladimir Putin, conspiracies spared none! It is also been deemed that many such conspiracies changed the way people viewed the truth. But, the truth, only exists like an unsolved puzzle before us. Here are some of the most discussed conspiracy theories about the greatest world leaders. 1. Barack Obama © usweeklu The 'birther' theory about former U.S. President Barack Obama keeps circulating on the web every now and then, thanks to President Donald Trump, who has clung to the issue so far. The theory revolves around the fact that former American President Barack Obama was born somewhere in Kenya and not in the United States. Long ago, Obama released short-form and long-form birth certificates proving he was born in Hawaii. As per a report published in Newsweek sometime back, a survey concluded that almost more than 50 percent Republicans voted in favor of Obama being born in Kenya. However, there have been no proofs of it yet. 2. Justin Trudeau © imgur Justin Trudeau has always been known for his humble, sympathetic and cordial nature. The Canadian Prime Minister is a hero to the residents of Canada. But not even his biggest of fans know that he had been associated with the fallen (now dead) dictator of Cuba, Fidel Castro. Many times he has been accused of having family ties with the former Cuban leader. This first came to light when Justin shared some warm words about strongman Castro and praised him as a 'remarkable leader', at the time of Castro's death. During his speech, Trudeau exclaimed that his death has caused him 'deep sorrow'. Trudeau's statement received backlash and his praise was termed as 'repugnant'. Though both had an uncanny resemblance, the theory was clarified by the fact that Justin was born December 25, 1971, nine months after Pierre and Margaret's (Justin's parents) honeymoon in British Columbia and long before the couple traveled to Cuba, and met Fidel Castro. Dang! 3. Princess Diana © popsugar The world almost came to a standstill when the news broke out about the tragic death of the Princess of Wales. On the night of 31 August 1997, Princess Diana lost her life in a fatal car accident in Paris. Her death sent shockwaves particularly in Great Britain and the entire incident was not being considered as something normal. Instead, people had a strong belief that Diana was killed. The British Royal family received strong criticism and it was in the air that Diana's death was the result of some kind of conspiracy, conducted secretly by agents of the British state. Diana had been in a car whose driver was drunk and it was seen as no less than a plot to murder. People believed that someone wanted to kill Diana and the series of events were arranged. Operation Paget was launched in order to investigate the details surrounding the case. After an expenditure of millions of pounds and years of research, it was found that the death was a doomed incident. 4. Melania Trump © hercampus There is an outlandish conspiracy theory revolving around the first lady of the US, Melania Trump. Last year, a comedienne and actress named Andrea Warton shared a Facebook post where she explained how a 'body double' replaced Melania Trump, who was being referred to as “my wife” by President Donald Trump. Andrea also shared pictures of the incident which later got widely circulated on the net. However, the genesis of this conspiracy isn't exactly clear yet. 5. Vladimir Putin © washington examiner Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is a man of many mysteries. Once referred to as the killer, kleptocrat, genius, spy by The Guardian, it is believed that the world still needs to know much about this ubiquitous leader. As per theorists, Putin is immortal. This theory emerged from the fact after a picture of a Russian soldier which was taken in the 1920s, had a spooky resemblance to Putin's present-day pictures. Till date there has been no evidence about Putin being a killer, theorists believe that he has recurrently ordered the assassination of journalists and leading political opponents. During the uprise of Trump, when the current President of the United States was accosted by Fox's Bill O'Reilly, where Bill exclaimed, “Putin's a killer”, Trump notoriously replied, “There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country's so innocent?” Thinkers have also believed that Putin is the butcher of Chechnya, the killer of Litvinenko, and the invader of Georgia. 6. Pope Francis © cruxnow The theories about Pope Francis can make you laugh and wonder at the same time. Philosophers have time and again written about the 266th and current Pope of the Catholic Church. According to Irish Saint Malachy, the 12th-century bishop of Armagh, Pope Francis could be the last one and in his existence, Rome will fall like a house of cards! Other theories claim that Pope's eyes glow red in dark, which means he carries the power to demolish the Church. Certainly, no one would ever believe that. 7. Kim Jong Un © wired Not much is known about the exact circumstances of the birth of this supreme North Korean leader who claims to have a nuclear bomb's button at his table. Theorists believe that Kim Jong was the one involved in the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, while the flight was en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Explaining another theory the New Yorker once wrote that Kim executed his uncle and also ordered the murder of his half-brother. The theory is often termed as the 'madman theory' by journalists and others. 8. Indira Gandhi © india There have been theories about Indira Gandhi's love life, which later became a matter of political scrutiny. It is believed that Gandhi got close to many renowned men in her life. Her first affair was alleged with her German teacher, at Shantiniketan. Reportedly, she also got involved with her father's close secretary. The patrician lady also allegedly found her love interest in Dr, Dinesh Singh who was then a minister in her cabinet. 9. Mother Teresa © famousbiographies Years back a paper (in French) for the journal Studies in Religion carried out some controversial information on Mother Teresa who is otherwise known to be a saint. The paper claimed that Mother Teresa was politically credulous and at times maintained friendly relations with tyrants like Jean-Claude Duvalier and Enver Hoxha. Theorists also assert that the medical care provided by her missionaries of charity was based on the cult of suffering. 10. Queen Elizabeth © mirroruk British Humdinger has a very different view of Queen Elizabeth's long existence. Now you can think what you want, but as per a report, human remains have been discovered inside Queen Elizabeth's private freezer, which brings us to a conclusion that she may be a 'cannibal'.
  20. If you're a true model plane flight enthusiast, you'll agree with us on how even the swankiest of drones and the most agile of Radio Controlled Ready-To-Fly planes cannot steal from the charm of a simple paper plane. Flying paper planes with secret messages was once a favourite old-school classroom activity and children would be out and about at play, competing distance with their paper aircrafts, before technology took over. This trip down the memory lane had us feeling mucho nostalgic at MensXP, but at Mean Machines, you know we always take things up a notch-- ergo, a full blown instructional piece on how to make not just a paper jet plane, but super fast aerodynamic ones for distance, because what's a plane that drops a foot from its flight? © iStock There Are A Few Things You Might Want To Keep In Mind Before We Start: 1. Yes you can get a paper cut while folding. Please take care through the activity, unless you like a bloodied up jet, of course-- for added drama (we get that) 2. An origami paper jet may look like it's ready to take on the world, but not all origami planes are meant to go the distance. The truly agile ones are highly aerodynamic and are complex to make. If you're making a paper plane just for the fun of it, you could choose to stick to a simpler make, and if you're in the mood for a distance challenge you could sweat it out with a complex one-- we'll show you how to make both © David Boe 3. Things you'll need-- a rectangular sheet of paper-- the easier to fold, the better. Choose a colour of your liking, but if you are in the mood for old school, go with plain white or ruled sheets from your favourite notebook (if you still have any, that is. If don't, and nostalgia is running high, you can always make short trip to the local stationary)! You might also need a ruler and a pen/pencil for marking, wherever necessary. © Instructables Let's prepare for flight then, with a simple paper plane that can be made in under 5 minutes and will boomerang back to you! This super easy to make paper plane circulates back to you post flight and can do the distance, depending on your throw. YouTuber Mahir Cave, who has a huge following on the medium, will help you get on with it-- happy landing! YouTuber TriKdanG is an Origami paper plane genius, which is precisely why his instructional videos receive among the highest views on the media channel. Naturally, we browsed through TriKdanG's top origami paper jet making videos and came across one a smashing aircraft that he calls the "Galaxy Fighter 2". This is a true-to-its name aircraft that can fly a distance of 10000 feet-- a challenger, to say the least! Despite the intricate folding techniques, TriKdanG makes it look like a piece of cake. Do you think you're ready for the Galaxy Fighter 2 challenge? Get folding with TriKdanG now For those who have forgotten how to make the hackneyed dart design airplanes, we have a special treat, because not all of us care for origami, at the end of the day (don't be bashful, most of us here chose to take the easy way out)! Here's a video of a school teacher demonstrating how to make one in under 2 minutes. Up, up and away!
  21. Being from an army family, I was always a very active kid. Ample football and lots of cycling used to be my daily highlights till class 12th. Owing to so much activity and low appetite, I've been a skinny kid almost whole my life. Then the IIT JEE fever hit me and I stopped all physical activities. This further reduced my appetite and I lost more weight. © Vivek Sick Of 'Fake Natties' When the engineering entrance exams got over, I decided to join a gym and bought a mass gainer on the gym trainer's recommendation. I wanted to lok good, period. Sadly, I lost all motivation within 2 weeks when I didn't see differences. Now when I look back I know why I was so impatient. It's the fake natural transformations that many fitness companies put out because of which many people end up setting unrealistic goals for themselves. Fast forward a year, I was studying at IIT Guwahati. During summer offs I went back home and my friend Aman Duggal got me back into lifting. We started off with a famous workout at the time, called P90X. This is what I looked like before starting (Date: 14th May 2012, bodyweight= 62kg, height=6ft) © Vivek We followed the program with a lot of dedication and this was me towards the end of this training program (Date: 26 July 2012, Bodyweight= 64kg): © Vivek For the first time in my life, I had noticed big differences in my body. This gave me a sense of achievement and the confidence to keep moving forward. Then I started following the typical bodybuilding.com programs like P90X and Jim Stoppani's Shortcut to Size. I saw great changes in my body. Then I was introduced to 5X5 program from Jason Blaha, Layne Norton's PHAT, Candito's Training. I saw even better changes with these programs. I have been a lacto-vegetarian whole my life but during this time I had started eating eggs in order to meet my protein requirements. Within 14 months of lifting, I had put on 15kg. But then I realised that I had put on a lot of fat as well along the way. © Vivek Soon, I started preparing for the bodybuilding contest of my college. This had always been a dream. Now for the first time in my life, I was counting calories on a daily basis. The goal was to get on the stage, as shredded as possible. My diet diligence brought me down to 74kg. The result, I got what I came for. I won the competition; I was Mr. IIT Guwahati 2014! © Vivek Now I was more passionate than ever. Becoming a fitness professional was the next step. While looking at different fields in fitness, I came across biomechanics. When I started reading more about it I was amazed to know that weightlifting is basically mechanics. I was hooked and kept it consistent. Fast forward to Jan 2016, I was managing a job and bodybuilding together. My salary funded my fitness education. I joined Bayesian Bodybuilding course which is considered one of the best in evidence based fitness community. This is what I looked like (Date: 18th Jan 2016, Bodyweight: 79kg) © Vivek During 2016, I had to again take 2 months off from training owing to a supraspinatus injury and sciatica. During this time I could dedicate more time to my studies and work. After 2 months, I decided to get back into the gym but I had a fear of getting injured again. So, I'd decided not to push hard in the gym and go easy for a while. During all this, I completed my certification and started taking clients for online fitness coaching. I quit my corporate job and started working with my friend Aman Duggal at Alpharaj.com. Finally I became a full time fitness professional! This is me right now, back into the game with full force and a lot more knowledge. Taking every step forward cautiously; tracking my training and diet meticulously. (Date: 15th Dec 2017, Bodyweight: 78kg) © Vivek Took The Vegan Route For the last 2 years, I've been a vegan. So, my current supplement stack is: Vegan Protein Blend or Pea Protein, Creatine Monohydrate, a basic multivitamin, Vitamin B12 and D3, vegan DHA, Curcumin and Caffeine (mostly from coffee). As for workouts, I keep mine very simple. Compound movements followed by a few isolations. I use undulating set x reps for most exercises. I use paired sets which help me save time and perform better on both the paired lifts. The Future In the future, I would like to step on the big stage and compete with the best natural bodybuilders out there. But currently it's hard to find an Indian organization which is completely drug tested and bans drug users. Until then, the man in the mirror is my only competition!
  22. Time and again, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza have proved that they are head over heels in love with each other and that they aren't afraid it to show it to the world. From adorable birthday and anniversary wishes to gifting each other extravagant things (Remember she gave him a Tesla for his birthday?), the duo has always been public about their relationship and are an inspiration for their fans across the country. I look at you & find my self, a stronger self, a better self, a happy self, a blessed self.

But in case you don't, the first thing that you should know is that Riteish's first Bollywood film was with Genelia- 'Tujhe Meri Kasam'. © Romoji Film City Only recently, their film completed 15 years and of course, Riteish had to take it to his Twitter to recall the good old memories. 3rd Jan 2003 : 15 years ago #TujheMeriKasam released. Debut film: Life changed. Architect became an actor. Costar @Geneliad become my baiko. #15YearsOfTujheMeriKasam pic.twitter.com/xr6Q7Eqv0a — Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) January 3, 2018 While doing that, he also gave us a small insight into how the duo started talking to each other. Or rather, how they did not. He said in another tweet that during the initial days of shooting, Genelia did not speak to him for a reason that took us all by surprise. .@geneliad didn't speak to me for the first two days during the shoot of the film because my father was the Chief Minister on Maharashtra then. #15YearsOfTujheMeriKasam pic.twitter.com/dezgUiqtpz — Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) January 3, 2018 Apparently, she assumed that since he is a politician's son, he is bound to have security with him at all times. The first thing @geneliad asked me was - 'where is your security?' I replied - 'I don't have any' ... #15YearsOfTujheMeriKasam — Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) January 3, 2018 This definitely made us all smile but when Genelia replied to this tweet of his, we could not help but love them even more. Of course ... who would think the CM's son didn't have security and was just a quiet boy who was going to take my heart away https://t.co/XduSQzrLd3 — Genelia Deshmukh (@geneliad) January 3, 2018 Not that we needed another proof of their love for each other, but this has made them our favorite Bollywood couple for years to come.
  23. Bollywood has the richest and the most happening folks in the country; they live king size and their lifestyle definitely shows that.

  24. Goa is basically home to every vacation lover in India. Be it with friends, family or just a solo trip, the beautiful state is our getaway paradise. We all have been through that stage where college friends make plans for a Goa trip and creating our very own 'Dil Chahta Hai' feels to our Goa pictures. However, it seems like Vijai Sardesai, the state minister for agriculture and town and country planning has other plans for a better future of the state. He actually wants to discourage Indian visitors from planning any visits here. According to a report in Times Of India, he said, "Goa should become so expensive that tourists should say that it is not worth coming to Goa. Which tourists ... the Indian tourists. We must have high end facilities and get high end tourism, which benefits the sons of the soil. Why do we need these common tourists? It is not only about quantity, but also about quality of tourists coming to Goa. They say that today 64 lakh tourists come and we will take it to 1 crore. You don't need them. Reduce the numbers and instead bring the high spenders in”. © Vijai Sardesai While one is not questioning the intentions of the state ministry. Surely, thinking of welfare and enhancing infrastructure for better revenue that comes from tourism is important, but having an agenda where domestic visitors are dissuaded is nothing short of absurd. People are already questioning the whole thing. Yo Vijai Sardesai, while you're at it, whyncha invite Portugal to take over GOA again? https://t.co/LmKjIFFK7b That way you can really keep Indians out, 'cos then they will need passports & visas to come to Goa! — Sujeev Kommana (@skommana1) January 6, 2018 This development is clearly spelling out that the state wants to focus on a particular kind of tourist, which is not only unfair but extremely bizarre. Goa is everyone's favourite holiday destination in the country and making these remarks only highlights how lowly we perceive our own people.
