REUTERS/Neil Hall/Files; RIGHT: Former One Direction member Zayn Malik arrives at the fifth annual Asian Awards in the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, Britain, April 17, 2015. REUTERS/Cathal McNaughton/Files British-American heartthrob Zayn Malik of One Direction fame and Gigi Hadid, one of the top-tier models, on Tuesday announced that they were splitting up. Hadid seemed to be formal in this regard, writing on her Twitter that "there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years .. not only in the relationship, but life in general". Calling him "Z" affectionately, she said she was "forever grateful for the love, time, and life lessons" they shared. On the other hand, Malik commented that they had an "incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship". He said he had "a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend". The ex-One Direction band member, however, added that this was a "difficult decision" and asked fans for "privacy at this time". Hadid and Malik started dating sometime in early 2015. Says Vogue: "The supermodel and her crooner boyfriend made their red carpet debut as an item at the 2015 Met Gala, arriving in consciously coordinated black tie (she in Tommy Hilfiger, he in Versace)." Earlier, in 2017, sources said the Zayn-Gigi relationship was on the rocks, with the model saying she wanted to end her relationship with the singer due to his dependent behaviour. Gigi Hadid to call it quits with Zayn Malik Another break-up on its way? According to Hadid, Zayn's struggle with anxiety was taking a toll on their relationship and she felt "suffocated" by him, said an insider. The source added: ?Zayn still gets incredibly worked up over every little thing and it's really wearing Gigi out. "He's become dependent on her, and she feels trapped. Everyone around her is convinced she'll end it by the end of summer.? Malik, on the other hand, responded in an interview, stating that he and Hadid had a totally ?normal? relationship and didn't think of themselves as the ?power couple? they?re portrayed as. ?I?m with her because I like her,? he explained. ?And I hope she?s with me because she likes me."

  3. If the recent trends are any indication, white sneakers have been easy weapons for a while. Men of every age, psyche or personal style have embraced the pair in every goddamn setting, including Fridays at corporate offices. Because really, while they could be a little hard to maintain, white kicks elevate your stakes, quick. Pick out any piece off your wardrobe, slip into it and complete the outfit with white sneakers. Easy. So much so, that even Ahan Shetty believes in the power of crisp white sneakers. Hence, to cut the long story short, here are 7 times the star-kid showed us how to wear them right; without much effort (and sweat). 1. Let's begin with the basics, when it's all about minimal (but effective) impact. Grab a solid-coloured T-shirt and well-fitted jeans (maybe a little ripped/distressed/knee-holed) and voila, you're done. But since there's hardly any effort involved, the fit of your pieces will hold crucial. Nail that. © Viral Bhayani 2. What if jeans aren't your thing? Then, you're probably the man of joggers/sweatpants. In that case: stick to a single-coloured ensemble and go safe (maybe with a black-on-black). And, throw in athletic trims on the joggers if you may. But most importantly, remember to invest in joggers that don't look lousy. Supremely loose joggers are meant for the couch. © Viral Bhayani 3. Let's not forget graphic T-shirts, that are hugely popular too (and you most definitely own them). Feel free to venture beyond the horizon with them. Keep the rest of the outfit minimal and wear any variant of a graphic T-shirt you want — single coloured, two-toned, multicoloured etc. However again, be cautious with the fit. © Viral Bhayani 4. How to wear white kicks in summer: with city shorts and just a solid-coloured T-shirt. Else, replace no-impact shorts like Ahan's with printed ones. However, keep the print restricted to one piece only. You don't want unnecessary print clashes ruining your day. © Viral Bhayani 5. Time to throw on a shirt (quite literally). Begin with an outfit as close as #1, and top things off with a printed shirt. Or, another classic casual shirt (printed or not). Since the shirt's going to be the focal point of the outfit here, choose your print/pattern wisely. © Viral Bhayani 6. Of course, you can wear the shirt without the T-shirt too. It would add a lot more refinement, you see. And as opposed to Ahan's choice of denim here (very classic), try ripped and distressed jeans as well. You'd have an edge above the rest. Promise. © Viral Bhayani 7. And if it's getting a little chilly, slip into a sweatshirt instead. Keep the rest of the procedure the same: well-fitted jeans and a neutral palette. Plus, try patchwork, slogans or whatever the hell you want on top! © Viral Bhayani
  4. Now this isn't your regular 'do this and do that' article. Here I'll put out some training and nutrition anecdotes that I have applied over the course of my training. These are psychological learning procedures that eventually seeped into my training and eating philosophies. 1) Lift With Somebody Stronger Than You Just like I said above, lifting is also a psychological game. Training with someone stronger (and bigger) than you can push you to strive harder. It works like that, well unless that person is not a typical gym bully. You will learn to push harder, add in on your knowledge bank and will develop a work ethic. 2) Walk Like Your Life Depends On It I have written and spoken on how underrated walking is for fat loss. The human body is made to be as mobile as possible at most times. If you want to keep weight gain away, you need to start walking a lot. This is the simplest thing you can do to start a healthy life. The amount of calories you will end up burning will surprise you and get you hooked to counting your steps. © Pixabay 3) Re-Rack Your Weights In The Gym Funny but yes, re-racking weights is a workout in itself that most people don't do. Carrying weights for distances is something us humans have done for centuries. Re-racking makes you do the same things. You will improve your grip and even your core strength. 4) Warm Up Your Glutes And Hamstrings Before Deadlifitng And Squatting Both of these lifts require a very well warmed up body not only because the loads are heavy but also because you are more prone to injuries while doing these two. Tight hamstrings and glutes are the primary cause of bad form during the deadlift and squatting. Glute bridges and hip thrusts, if done correctly, can loosen tight glutes very well. Try them out! 5) Eat At Least 25-30 Gms Of Protein With Every Meal You Have Forget about every myth of having high protein diets and dunk in at least 25 grams of protein with every meal you eat. You have no idea how vital protein consumption is for sustaining a good basal metabolic rate and prevents muscular weaknesses. You will feel fuller and see better results from your physical activities. © Pixabay 6) Warm Up Your Shoulders Before Any Pressing Dominant Workout Every pressing exercise has shoulder involvement. So it's only common sense to warm-up them up. But since commonsense is not so common, most dudes don't give a damn about a good shoulder warm up. So next time, warm-up the shoulders first and then get into your workout. 7) Do The Exercises You Hate The Most A very well known golden rule of getting stronger is to do the exercises you are the worst at. Nobody is a complete lifter and has pitfalls. Identify those, do them more often and track your progress on them. 8) Make A Lifting Log A lifting log is your key to becoming a strong lifter. How would you be rich when you don't know how much your bank balance is? Same goes for progress on lifting. Log down the weights every week and check the log every week before hitting the gym. © Pixabay 9) Don't Make Fitness Your Second Job Being enthusiastic about fitness is amazing. Be consistent with your diet and training but don't get too ruthless. Occasional cheats are fine. Dining out with friends is fine. Even a drink or two sometimes is fine. Draw a line between what is excess and strike a balance. Don't let fitness get to you so much that it starts feeling like a boring chore.
  5. Sometimes men project clingy-ness as much as women do and it can really get unbearable. There should always be a healthy balance maintained between showing affection and giving your SO some much needed personal space. If you can't distinguish between the two, then you're definable, classic 'stage 5 clinger' who needs to know when to stop! If you're less clingy, you'll score some fab brownie points for yourself and the other person too! © Thinkstock/Getty Images Here are five sure shot ways to be less clingy and enjoy a healthy relationship with your partner. Show Self Confidence Are you scared of losing them? Your insecurities may speak volumes if you're always on guard and hounding them for their company all the time. It's best to not let your insecurities overtake you so that you act clingy in the first place. Be sure of yourself because if you're confident about yourself, your partner will see you in another light, altogether. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Give Them Space! Space is a good thing. It's not like your partner will forget you if you give them space! Is that your fear? Your partner will be appreciative of the fact that you respect her space. Too much closeness in a relationship put restrictions and ruin the sanctity of it. Give her and yourself some time away. Travel with your buddies, involve yourself in different hobbies and activities and see your relationship flourish! © Thinkstock/Getty Images Put Yourself First Right now all you think about is them and somewhere you've forgotten you exist! It's time to start thinking about yourself and making YOU a priority. Because they're always on your mind you can't help but pine for their presence at all times. Give yourself the importance you truly deserve and you will see how necessary that actually is! © Thinkstock/Getty Images Resolve Trust Issues Clingy-ness also comes from unresolved trust issues. You're clingy because you fear losing this person and you don't trust the relationship one bit. It's best to sit them down and address issues of trust before they manifest into a deep dark black hole! If you don't trust your partner completely, you can never give them the space they actually need. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Admit That You're Clingy! If you're in denial about being clingy with your girlfriend then you really need to jump out of that pronto and start working on yourself. How do you know if you're clingy? If your GF hasn't voiced it out already subtly or otherwise, then I am sure her actions will tell you so. If she's maintaining a distance emotionally and physically and gets annoyed with your presence often, you know what's going on. The sooner you admit that you're not giving each other space, the sooner you can start to resolve the issues and lead a healthier life together. © Thinkstock/Getty Images These are the first and foremost signs of undoing clingy-ness, once you figure you're being clingy. It's time you put these tips into practice!

Nawaz decided to not extend an invitation to Chaudhry Nisar, who has been associated with the Pakistan Muslim League ? Nawaz (PML-N) for over three decades, to the Central Working Committee (CWC) session held earlier today. The reported decision comes after Nisar openly opposed Nawaz's stance on the party's political strategy following the Supreme Court's July 28 verdict that ousted the former from holding public office. According to sources, Nawaz was not ready to invite Nisar despite the insistence of Shehbaz Sharif, Khawaja Saad Rafique, and Ayaz Sadiq. 'Issue between Nisar, Nawaz will be resolved' Earlier this month, on February 15, Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique had said that the issue between Nawaz and Nisar will be resolved. The federal minister was speaking on the recent issue between the two leaders over the selection of the route for Nawaz?s motorcade following the Panama case July 28 verdict. Rafique had said that Nawaz had not given any statement related to Nisar, adding that he is the one who suggested to Nawaz to take the Grand Trunk road route instead of the Motorway for reaching Lahore during the PML-N president's August rally. The statement comes after Nawaz in an apparent jibe at Nisar, who has publicly expressed reservations over various party policies, said that ?certain people had advised me against taking out the rally through GT Road?. Imran invites Nisar to join PTI fold PTI chairman Imran Khan on February 11 had invited the former interior minister to join his party's fold. In his informal conversation with newspersons, Khan had said it would be better if Nisar joins his party, promising his support to the former interior minister even he chooses to contest the next election as an independent candidate. "At times, one has to have a bigger heart in politics," he had said.
  7. There are many different reasons to build a community. It might be based on your business or a hobby. It may be to talk about your favourite sports team. Whatever the content, the key to success is to engage your community. We've been helping successful communities for over 15 years. During that time, we've picked up a handful of tips that we are going to share with you today. Pick one to try this week and let us know how you get on. Welcome every single member A great way to make members feel welcome at your community is to post a daily or weekly topic welcoming your new members. Post a short message asking them to introduce themselves and tag new members. This will encourage them to start a discussion that others can get involved with. It won't be long before friends are made and what may have been a passing member will be part of your core community. Host a "lurker week" Every few months, host a "Lurker week" where you encourage non-posting members to join in. You can explain the benefits of the community and encourage them to say hello. It's a great way to get people to introduce themselves. Suzi Nelson pioneered this over at Digital Marketer. She created a lurker themed week and was able to activate 44% of her previously inactive members in only five days! Spotlight members you want others to model Often you will see a member do something amazing in the community. Maybe they posted a really good question or perhaps they have been very active and helped many other members. Create a topic about it. Highlight how and why they are an asset they are to the community. This sends a positive message to other members that these kinds of actions will be celebrated. You can even turn this into a weekly or monthly ritual where you celebrate the member of the week or month. Educate about notifications The notifications system in Invision Community is the best way to get return visits. Why not put up a pinned topic in a visible area reminding your members how to get the best from the notification system, and asking them to enable them and follow any interesting forums or topics. This way they won't miss out of any discussion while they're away and as a bonus, they're more likely to return to catch up. Regular Interaction This is a very simple but often overlooked tip. As the community manager your purpose is to facilitate discussion. Make sure you show up regularly and create new discussions as well as reply to existing ones. People are more likely to post if they feel they will get a reply. Often your reply will send off a cascade of more interaction as different facets of the conversions come out. Ask for feedback Members love to be involved in brainstorms and to share their thoughts. Asking for feedback works on two levels. You get great ideas on how to improve your community. It is also a great tactic to get discussion going. Taking action on feedback makes that person feel more invested in your community and will champion it to others. Try and be specific when asking for feedback. Try "How can I increase the level of activity" or "Do you need any articles or topics written on specific subjects". The more specific, the easier it will be for your members to narrow down their thoughts. Be persistent These tips might give your community a short burst of engagement. To build a long lasting and highly engaged community, you have to be persistent and keep at it. The key to building a community is simple: put in the work and care about your members. If your members see how much you care and that you are showing up every day, they are more likely to show up too. Which of these tips are you going to try this week?
  8. The truth is, men are superficial groomers. They wash their face daily, use musky body washes (or whatever the hell's on the shelf), trim their nails, use momma's moisturiser, a sunscreen occasionally (sadly with low SPFs) and that's all. That's literally all they do. And that to them is a balls-out grooming regime. Point being, there's a lot that goes into 'healthy skin'. Including elimination of acne and it's more conservative cousin, blackheads. And talking of pore-induced skin disorders, let's just say, they're easy to tackle. For example, blackheads, that can be kicked to the curb with simple, everyday routines. Plus, they're more prevalent in men (since men have oilier skin than women), so you rather relent. But before we succumb to your impatient behaviour, let's first understand 'blackheads' and what brings them to form. © 411 Africa Fact: blackheads belong to the acne family. And derive their name from, you guessed it right, the colour black. But how? When your pores get clogged because of excess sebum and dead skin cells, a bump forms—let's call it a head for now. And if air escapes into it (through some way or the other), the melanin within the pore oxidises and turns black. And that's how you're blessed with a black f-ckn head. Where are they found? Science says, they're found lying in the oiliest areas of your face, and in and around it—sometimes even on other parts of your body. But that's just information, what about riddance? Scroll down, man. © Standard UK 1. Scream SALICYLIC ACID. Even in 2017, men wash their faces with soap and water. For starters, man the f*ck out of that habit, dude. And invest in a face wash that's meant for oily skin and one, that includes blemish-fighting components like salicylic acid. Like Bombay Shaving Company's Face Cleanser. Just turn the packaging around and brings your eyes to the words. Then walk to the counter and swipe your card. As a thumb rule, invest in mens face washes alone (not ANY face wash). As opposed to products meant for women, face washes for men won't dry your skin out. So, they'll facilitate dead skin cell shedding and unclog pores! © Telegraph UK 2. Exfoliate like you pee. Time and again. You'd think that oil and dirt produce blackheads. You're wrong. Most times, your own dead skin cells let you down and result in black heads. So do yourself a favour and exfoliate every other day. But not daily. We recommend: L'Oréal Paris Men Expert Charcoal Scrub. 3. Take pro-help or give yourself a facial. It's not a girl-thing to do and if you're honest enough, you'd admit to thoughts of getting a facial. We get it, we've been there too. Point being, facials are refreshing, prevent blackheads and if you have them anyway, they'll help in elimination. There are a million face masks in the market too, just get over your sexist pride and throw one in your cart. © Man Calgary 4. Non-comedogenic products, that's all we're asking for. Not asking for too much now, is it? Whatever your answer, we don't care—we're only helping you here. Non-comedogenic products are specially built to not clog your pores, so we'd suggest you respect their charitable KRA. Always read the label and make a purchase. With these two recommendations, here's us saving some effort for you: Neutrogena's Oil-Free Acne Wash, Kiehl's Blue Herbal Moisturiser. © Mouthshut 5. Sorry for the annoyance, but you need to moisturise too. There's only one thing that comes out of daily moisturisation: healthier skin. And of course men want that, including you. Incentive enough, moisturisation (you need it, even if you have oily skin) also helps in improving the quality of your cells, so that they don't shove themselves into another pore soon.
  9. ISLAMABAD: Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq met on Tuesday senior party leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, discussing ways to put an end to political contention, sources said. In the meeting, the former interior minister said that he is not in favour of bringing the parliament and judiciary face to face. Speaker NA Ayaz Sadiq said that if every institution worked under the constitutional limits then problems will not be created. The disgruntled senior PML-N leader has been in the spotlight due to contention and differences with the party leaders. Earlier, Chaudhry Nisar had issued a clarification against ?accusations? hurled by party leaders in a meeting. He said that the decision for the August rally?s route through Motorway was taken in a meeting attended by party leaders, including Nawaz. The statement comes after Nawaz in an apparent jibe at Nisar, who has publicly expressed reservations over various party policies, said that ?certain people had advised me against taking out the rally through GT Road?. ?Where are those people now,? asked Nawaz from a gathering of party leaders and workers. Apart from this, Nisar also has differences with another party leader Pervaiz Rasheed. He had even said that he is not willing to work under former prime minister Nawaz Sharif?s daughter, Maryam Safdar. Responding to a question, the former interior minister said during an interview with Saleem Safi the he was asked if he could work under Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz Sharif and he said that he could, when he was asked if he could work under Maryam Nawaz Sharif, he said no he could not, and for that reason he side-lined himself.
  10. Are you one of those people who took a New Year's resolution to get fit this year, get some abs, and flaunt a beach body? And that resolution went into a coma by mid-January? Well, this happens every year. The good news is that in this article, I will be covering a glorious 'list of five tips' that covers the fundamentals of lasting fat loss. Special note: None of these tips come close to the blasphemy of 'apply tiger balm on your belly and crunch out the fat.' Tip 1: Eat More Protein © Thinkstock Protein is the macronutrient that keeps you satiated and it has the highest thermic effect too. That means you end up eating lesser calories per meal and it burns the maximum amount of calories to digest the food consumed. You have a lot of options for protein- shakes, chicken, fish, turkey, egg whites and etc. Target eating minimum 1.5g/kilo of protein on a daily basis, trained individuals can eat up to 2.5 or even 3. Tip 2: Eat More Fiber © Thinkstock Who would have thought that the scolding you got by your parents 'eat your vegetables' played such a big role in you getting fat? Fiber, that mainly comes from fruits and veggies, keep you full and also are low-calorie snacks. They are a smart food option for mid-day cravings, over a pack of cookies or a bag of chips. Get your fruits and veggies quota sorted! Tip 3: Drink More Water © Thinkstock One of the worst habits that people have developed is not taking care of their hydration. The situation is so bad that people need apps to remind them to drink water. The reason people need to drink more water is not just for their internal organ health but to also manage calories. More often than not, you confuse thirst with hunger. If you are feeling hungry, drink half a liter of water and wait for 15 minutes. In 9/10 cases, you will not feel hungry anymore because you were actually thirsty, not hungry. And the added bonus- water is 0 calorie. Target drinking 3-4 liters of water on a daily basis. Tip 4: Hit The Gym 3-4 Times A Week © Thinkstock One of the major reasons your resolution failed was because you went in crazy with working out and hit the gym on all seven days of the week. You thought you are superhuman but the reality is that you aren't. Recovery from a workout sets the path of your next session. Training is important but it's not the only thing that dictates results. Train intelligently! Start with a 3 or a 4-day routine, build a habit and if you have the time, add more days. If your goal is to look good naked and have a good physique, a 4-day per week schedule will be sufficient in 99% of the cases. Tip 5: Get A Grip On Your Sleep © Thinkstock Staying up till late and scrolling endlessly on social media and using Tinder is fun but that is just adding to your problem, than solving it. Studies have shown that you tend to eat 30% more calories if you do not get proper sleep and also the tendency of mindless binge eating is higher when staying up late night. The more calories you eat the fatter you become, simple! Keep the screens off and hit the bed early. Get a solid 8 hours of sleep. These are the things you need to start doing in the first place before you start wasting your precious time trying to figure out which supplements to take or finding the best workout plan or the best meal plan for you. Start with the basics, build up. And if you are feeling crazy, apply a dollop of tiger balm on your abs and crunch it out. LOL, just kidding!

  11. Everyone wants to be rich, successful, and have a perfect body too if they can help it, but how many of us actually achieve so? Maybe only one percent of us do and that too not because they are lucky or something, but they have a strong will, self-discipline, and an attitude to make a sacrifice to achieve something. Here are a few tips and tricks that can help you achieve an unwavering discipline in life. 1. Take A Head Start On A Fixed Date © Psephizo Studies have found that setting a date or event (for eg, Monday or 1st of a month) to mark the start of a new regimen can make it more likely for you to follow through on your goals. 2. Note Down Your Reason For Self-Discipline When you do so, you remind yourself the importance of goals and how you will be able to achieve them. When you write them down on paper, you strengthen your belief in yourself and also clear your mind from any doubt you might have. 3. Visualize The Benefits Of Your Efforts © Instagram/sherlock_holmes_official Visualizing yourself as your future-self is the perfect bait for you to keep going with the good work. When you visualize yourself reaping the benefits of your efforts, you are more likely to work harder towards your aim. 4. Plan An Alternative For When The Temptation Will Arrive. If you are habitual of killing time with smoking and are tempted to do so time and again, just remind yourself of taking a walk with your friend or maybe even alone. That way you will be able to better arrange your thoughts and have a chance to control your temptation of smoking a cigarette. 5. Replace Your Can't With Don't. Next time someone offers you something you know is bad for you, then don't say you can't, but replace it with that you don't. When you say you can't, you feel like a victim who has been devoid of a small privilege, but when you say you don't, you seem determined and firm with your decision. 6. Hide Your Temptation In A Place Hard For You To Find © Pexels If you don't want your phone to distract you when you are about to go to sleep, then why not put it somewhere way away from your reach? Simple isn't it? 7. Sleep For Straight 8 Hours. If you do not get enough sleep for the day then you might feel lethargic throughout the day, and that may hamper your effort of maintaining your discipline. 8. Ask Your Close Friend To Keep A Check On Your Bad Habits. When someone close to you reminds you to stay on track, you are more likely to listen to them. In that case, who is better than your roommate or a friend with whom you spend most of your time with. 9. Look At All The Options Available. If you can trick your mind with other options then you will have better chances of not falling into the trap of temptation, and won't make an impulsive decision. Start preparing your options of the list for something you want to resist. 10. Avoid Alcohol. © Thinkstock/Getty Images It is no rocket science and we all know how alcohol slows down our nervous system. When we consume alcohol we tend to take action first and think later. Clearly, that's not a good way to break your rhythm of staying true to your efforts. 11. Increase Your Glucose Level. Studies suggest that consuming glucose keeps your willpower strong. So the next time when you feel that you won't be able to keep your promise to yourself, try having a glass of hot water, lemon and a tablespoon of honey. 12. Keep Your Company With Self-Disciplined People. © AZ Quotes As Jim Rohn has said, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” It simply implies the company you choose to spend your spend time with, plays a major role in deciding your good or bad habits.
  12. Jennifer Aniston and husband, actor Justin Theroux. Image Courtesy: Glamour LOS ANGELES: Jennifer Aniston and husband Justin Theroux announced their separation on Thursday after less than three years of marriage, immediately sparking speculation that the former Friends star might reunite with Brad Pitt ? her first spouse. ?We have decided to announce our separation,? Aniston and Theroux said in a joint statement. ?This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year.? Aniston, 49, and The Leftovers actor Theroux, 46, married in August 2015. The statement gave no reason for the split. ?We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly,? the statement said. Aniston, whose marriage to Pitt ended in divorce, is one of America?s most popular celebrities. The news swiftly became the top trending topic on Twitter, where fans chimed in with memes and comments about a possible Pitt-Aniston reunion. Pitt left Aniston for actress Angelina Jolie in 2005, but he and Jolie split up in 2016. Their divorce is being dealt with in private court and Pitt is currently single. Aniston and Theroux married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home in 2015 that took many of the couple?s guests, as well as the media, by surprise. They began dating in 2011. Aniston has forged a lucrative film career in romantic comedies such as Horrible Bosses, Marley & Me, and Just Go with It since the 2004 end of the hit TV comedy Friends, which made her a global star. Theroux ? who is also a writer and producer ? is best known for his role on the HBO series The Leftovers, which ended last year. His other movies include The Girl on the Train and Zoolander 2.
  13. A healthy mind is essential to living a vibrant and fulfilling life. But, as we age, we generally lose our mental faculties and in turn, our brain function. Taking care of your brain is vital, as depending on how we use it, it can continuously advance or decline. Our brain needs as much exercise as our bodies. The more we challenge it, the further we can boost and maintain our intelligence and memory. So, to help you keep your mind active and your intelligence up to date, here are 8 simple yet effective exercises and habits anyone can squeeze in their busy schedule to get productive: 1. Knowledge begets knowledge Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Read as much as you can! Intelligence begins with reading and the more you read, the more knowledge you will absorb. 2. Exercise regularly Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Good blood flow and oxygenation in the brain promotes good mental health and exercising regularly is the best way to attain it. 3. Eat a balanced diet Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Your brain needs certain essential nutrients to perform at its optimum level. Consume a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, vitamins, amino acids and carbohydrates to main healthy brain function. 4. Avoid smoking and drinking a lot Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images If you're a smoker, stop it right now as the toxins in cigarettes can impair brain function. Drinking alcohol in moderation, especially when combined with socialising is beneficial for your brain function. But excessive consumption can be counter-productive. 5.

By taking part in challenging intellectual discussions with them, you will be exposed to novel ideas and perspectives. 7. Watch better things on TV Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Rather than watching reruns of your favourite sitcoms that don't add knowledge to your life, watch educational TV programmes like documentaries, factual films and current affair programmes and debates. 8. Play a mentally challenging game Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Play games that challenge your knowledge and force you to increase your brain function, rather than mindlessly killing ducks.

  14. There have been plenty of leaks that surround the upcoming Galaxy S9 and have given us a good idea of what the smartphone is going to look like. The smartphone is all set to be announced on February 25th and from what we hear, the device is going to be a tad better than its predecessor. The smartphone is expected to have face scanning features and upgrades to the camera that will make it a more refined phone than the S8. If the leaks come to fruition, the Galaxy S9 looks identical to the Galaxy S8, but there will be some differences that you need to know. A better screen © Twitter The Galaxy S9 is expected to have a screen that will be an upgrade from the Galaxy S8. From leaks, we can gather that the device is expected to have narrower bezels and more real estate for content. This basically means, Samsung is again pushing the envelope in terms of design and you can be rest assured it will look beautiful. 2. Vertical Rear Camera © Twitter The other difference one notices from the CAD design leaks is the placement of the camera at the back of the device. The Galaxy S9 is expected to have a vertical sensor placed at the back and the S9 Plus is expected to have a dual camera setup. This practically changes the entire look of the smartphone from the rear and may also improve pictures due to a better field of view. 3. Will there be Facial Recognition? © MensXP The iPhone X has already mastered the new way of unlocking smartphones and we are sure to see Samsung's version of the same technology on the Galaxy S9. Samsung already implemented iris scanning as a way to unlock smartphones and if rumours are to be believed, the S9 will feature the new secure face unlock system. Samsung will also integrate the new system with Samsung Pay, just like they have done with other forms of authentication methods and in turn make digital payments faster than ever. 4. Fingerprint Sensor Can Be Accessed Easily Now © Twitter The Galaxy S8 did not have many flaws in terms of design and practicality, however, the placement of the fingerprint sensor was not on point. In fact, I never bothered to unlock the device with my fingerprints and chose to use the IRIS scanner instead. The leaks show that the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S9 is just below the camera and that inherently fixes the only issue we had with the Galaxy S8.
  15. Go two generations above yourself, and almost everyone will have a problem with your ripped pair of jeans. It's simple: anything tattered (read: sloppy), torn, savaged in textbook knowledge, isn't the most pleasant sight to the eyes (especially to the elders). But thanks to style kings like Kanye West, Justin Bieber and homegrown god, Kartik Aaryan — ripped jeans are now our right. Also, like second skin for every hypebeast out there. And since we mentioned Aaryan's name (out of every other actor in the biz), let's give you affirmation ourselves, we do think he wears them pretty damn well. So much so, that if we had to offer a tutorial on how to ace the ripped jeans like Aaryan, here's what we'd dole out: 1. Kartik's idea is easy: it's a casual evening out and he needs to score that lass. But not at the behest of throwing his ripped jeans into the backdrop. Drop a classic simple T-shirt, slip into your crisp white high tops and wrap those strands in a beanie (in case it gets chilly). Assuming his skills, things are only destined to get instead. © Viral Bhayani 2. Carrying the same theory forward, looks like, Aaryan prefers greys for day outings instead. And since bed hair is sexy, he prefers venturing right in. All in all, roll up those sleeves for some added bulk on the guns. © Viral Bhayani 3. You may not be an alternative rock fanatic, but band T-shirts are big winners. Buy in versions of a tank top, throw on a baseball cap (turning it around) and top off with your white sneakers. Easy. © Viral Bhayani 4. By now, we've established that Aaryan has the simplest way of pairing his ripped jeans. Here's yet another example of the theory: his play with a classic white V beck T-shirt, in the most minimal manner. We can hear some of you saying, "Bro, ye toh killer lag raha hai". © Viral Bhayani 5. But if you think the former combo was too basic, here's an updated version for you. Rip the jeans even more, replace sneakers with brown boots, and don't forget the head accessories home. While at it, don't ignore the event of an elevator selfie. © Viral Bhayani 6. In case you're not aware, Kartik was among the first few names to kick-start the trend of ripped, holed and distressed T-shirts in India. Teaming them with ripped jeans, however, can turn awry, you see; you can end up going overboard. But since we've always had your back, here's what to do: © Viral Bhayani 7. And if you thought we were past the era of denim-on-denim, you're wrong. Here's exactly how to do ripped-denim-with-denim like Kartik Aaryan in 2018 — go darker in shade. © Viral Bhayani
  16. A new day and a new unique way in which Congress President Rahul Gandhi is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The guy can never catch a break. Even when he's trying to mock someone, he's the one who ends up getting trolled instead. Honestly, we do feel bad for him, but most of the time he does bring it all upon himself. But this time, he was just attending a concert in Shillong, but people found a way to make him regret all his life decisions. No, it wasn't like they had a problem with him having fun, but apparently with his choice of clothing. Turns out he was trolled mercilessly again just because he was wearing an 'expensive' jacket while attending this concert. Congress President Rahul Gandhi interacts with the audience at the 'Celebration of Peace' event. #OneMeghalaya pic.twitter.com/wUHqly1caV — Congress (@INCIndia) January 30, 2018 Starting an internet fight, the BJP took shots at Gandhi over his jacket, which they claim cost nearly â¹65,000. Posting side by side pictures of the jacket's original price and photo and Rahul Gandhi's picture wearing the jacket, the Meghalaya BJP Twitter account said, “So @OfficeOfRG, soot(pun intended!)-boot ki sarkar with 'black' money fleeced from Meghalayan State exchequer by rampant corruption? Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient govt in Meghalaya! Your indifference mocks us!” So @OfficeOfRG , soot(pun intended!)-boot ki sarkar with 'black' money fleeced from Meghalayan State exchequer by rampant corruption? Instead of singing away our woes, you could have given a report card of your inefficient govt in Meghalaya! Your indifference mocks us! pic.twitter.com/sRvj5eoyRb — BJP Meghalaya (@BJP4Meghalaya) January 30, 2018 The 'soot-boot' pun is in reference, and probably a retaliation to Rahul Gandhi's 'suit boot' jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, when he wore a monogrammed suit during a meeting with then US President Barack Obama in 2015. The suit was auctioned with a starting price of â¹11 lakh, but was ultimately sold for â¹4.31 crore. And, that was enough to start a tweetstorm. People came out to remind Rahul Gandhi of his own hypocrisy, and they did not hold back. What A Glow Up, Right? Fata Kurta to â¹60,000 worth jacket.

  17. Imagine standing in the middle of the road, seeing a truck head your way, while you stand there absolutely stuck and helpless, waiting for it to crush you under its wheels. Imagine feeling this way, all the time, every single day of your life. Now, imagine dating someone who feels this way constantly. Imagine dating someone who lives in a constant state of catastrophe, and doesn't quite know what really triggers it. This, my friend, is called anxiety and it can make the strongest person go weak in the knees, just by making its presence felt each passing day. Dating someone who has anxiety isn't a walk in the park, to be very honest. There are a myriad ups and downs the person experiences every other moment and the only way to ease them out of the situation is to patiently calm them down. The triggers can be anything. From the biggest tragedy to the smallest fear. For example, when you're dating a person who suffers from anxiety, the smallest thing like you not answering her calls, while you're busy at work, can trigger an unfathomable range of emotions in her and make her feel anxious about the situation. © Thinkstock An anxiety attack is not the same as a panic attack. Anxiety occurs due to a stressor. When the person faces an anxious situation, they usually identify the stressor that's provoked that reaction in them, whereas a panic attack is quite unpredictable and doesn't necessarily require a stressor to invoke a certain panic stricken reaction from you. So, identifying the difference between the two, while you're dating someone is fairly important because you might just inevitably become the stressor in her life, without knowing it and no it's not your fault at all. Yes, it's difficult to be with someone who is constantly anxious. People who suffer from anxiety over think and overanalyse everything. They run a scenario in their head tumultuously, a number of times just to get the answers to everything, themselves. For example, she may think about how your hug was different today than it was yesterday and beat herself silly over this simple thought or she may call to check on your whereabouts time and time again and ask you numerous times about when you'll be done with work. This is her not being insecure, this is her dealing with her anxiety and she knows it's troubling you. © Thinkstock You will definitely figure it out when someone you're with is being insecure and unreasonable or genuinely going through a bout of anxiety. The symptoms are very clear and if she has anxiety concerning the relationship, she will definitely have anxiety regarding everything else too. So we're going to try and help you understand how you can be around someone who has anxiety and goes through numerous anxiety attacks on a daily basis. Understand What Anxiety Is In order to deal with someone who is going through anxiety, you need to understand what anxiety is first. When your girlfriend or wife is experiencing an anxiety attack, open up a conversation and understand how their body is reacting to an attack, while understanding what is going through their mind. © Thinkstock Keep A Check On Their Frequent Triggers While there may be a different trigger that sets off in their head each day and gives them anxiety, there might be a pattern to the trigger points too. Understand what the common triggers are, causing her anxiety and help curb them for her. It could be bad traffic while she drives to work. You can insist on her taking a cab instead. It could be you not answering her calls or texts on time; you can let her know you are busy instead of ignoring her. Whatever her triggers are, identify them and understand why they give her anxiety. © Thinkstock Be Calm When She Isn't This is important for you to understand. After you know how her body and mind react to an anxiety attack, you have to be the calm one, calming her down. You can't raise your voice, even though she might be screaming, neither can you show callousness towards her through body language. You have to be ready and available when she's experiencing an attack and calm her down as much as you can. If physical touch helps her calm down, then definitely hold her close and give her a hug and keep talking to her through her rancid experience. Do not be abrasive! © Thinkstock Have A Plan To Tackle The Situation In Hand Whenever she's going through anxiety, have a plan in hand that will ease the situation for both you and her. It could be you sitting in silence and calming her down or you playing her favourite music to calm her down. If she wants you to leave the room, make sure you have an exit strategy sorted. When you figure her triggers out, don't do anything impulsive or spontaneous after. Make a plan and it will become easier to deal with, both for you and her. © Thinkstock Never Take It Personally Anxiety, more often than not, can manifest as anger and frustration and it can be taken out on someone anxious people are closest to. Never take her words or actions seriously when she's having an anxiety attack, it will only make things worse for you and you'll go down the rabbit hole, without even understanding where she's coming from. It's a tough thing to do but when she's experiencing anger, tell yourself it's temporary and constantly remind yourself that it's not aimed at you personally. The biggest challenge though is you thinking you can't fix the situation but with your determination and patience, the situation will heal on its own. © Thinkstock Urge Her To See A Therapist If she's already not seeing someone to curb her anxiety, definitely take her for therapy yourself. A therapist will understand her anxiety a lot better than you ever will, even though you do everything in your power to help her. Professional help can make her deal with her anxiety a lot better, so get her help when she needs it. © Thinkstock It's a tough ordeal to be stuck in and if you're with someone who has anxiety, don't give up on them and walk away. Instead understand what they're facing everyday and help them heal. Eventually, things will begin to look up for the both of you.
  18. You know what feeling is really underrated and doesn't get spoken about as much as it deserves to? The absolute ecstasy you experience while unboxing a brand new pair of bright, colourful sneakers. And that feeling intensifies when you wear it. By the time people are complementing it, you're through the roof. But, just like any Bollywood movie worth its salt, calamity strikes before the interval. Some idiot has stepped on your sneakers. Or worse, you have stepped into a puddle. As you see your life flash before your eyes, you're desperately trying to think of ways to save your favourite pair of shoes. Deep inside, you know that washing them is the only way. But you also know that you are the king of procrastination, and there is no way in hell you're doing that anytime soon. The result? Let's just say it's too depressing for us to discuss. So, keeping your laziness in mind, we have found 5 amazing ways in which you can make your dirty sneakers look brand new again without having to wash them all the way through. 1. Toothpaste: Before your jaw hits the floor, let us make it clear that we are not joking. Toothpaste is one of the best ways to clean the soles of your sneakers (which is usually the part that gets dirty unless you have run a marathon during the rains). Put some toothpaste on an old toothbrush and rub the dirty area (use a small amount of water). Once you see the dirt being scraped off, wipe the shoe with a piece of cloth or a sponge. Voila! Important: Use white toothpaste ONLY. © Wikihow 2. Hair Conditioner: Weird? Yes. Effective? Yes! Just put some conditioner on the dirty area, spread it, and rub it in with a sponge. Once the shoe is clean, wipe it off with a clean cloth. Doesn't get easier than this. © YouTube 3. Lemon juice and baking soda: Simply dip a toothbrush in lemon juice and then in baking soda. Use it to scrub the dirty part of the shoe. Wipe off with a cloth when done. © Purenow 4. Eraser: Don't laugh. It's legit, we promise. You know that pesky little stain that somehow just landed on your sneaker soles? Or on any other rubber part? Try rubbing that off with a white eraser. Yes, the 'pencil-eraser'. © JimmyTrims 5. Vinegar: Please avoid cleaning suede shoes with water. If you don't have access to suede cleaner solution (it's easily available, please go and get one), you can use vinegar to clean them with a very soft brush. Make sure you brush the suede in one direction only. © YouTube
  19. Are you the kind of man who rebounds like a ping pong ball? A rebound, to put it loosel,y is an astonishingly urgent need to find a temporary fix for a permanently damaged situation. The fix, like the problem, could be anything but more often than not, a rebounding situation mostly occurs when a relationship ends and either party is in desperate need of some smouldering yet exciting opportunity to get over things. To be really honest, women are not that great with rebounds, well, most women aren't. since their emotional healing after a break up takes ample time, they're more prone to attachments and may mistake a probable rebound for a casual, emotionally charged encounter. Men work differently there and I am sure you all agree. Men have a different coping mechanism and take longer to heal from a heavy breakup and so they end up casually flinging around, looking for instant gratification. What they have to deal with, in the longer run, is a different story altogether. A rebound isn't all that bad or challenging an idea and if you find mutual consensus about the same, with another person, it's probably a healthy way to recharge your sense of self. The only thing though is finding a girl who mutually succumbs to the same idea and doesn't get too emotionally involved or attached. So, tread carefully in the rebound territory because the last thing you want is a girl proclaiming her love for you, right after a successful romp! Here are some qualities to look out for, if you're desperately seeking a rebound. The Girl Who Is Looking For Nothing Serious Be very clear about what you want before you hook up with a girl. If you're not looking for something serious, why should you rebound with someone who is? That would be utterly unfair, wouldn't it? Make your intentions very clear as to what you want from the association and then carry on having fun. If you're stuck in the moment with this one and really want to take her to town, then make sure she's okay with being just your fling! The Girl Who Is Not Your Type Look for someone who isn't your type or someone you'd actually like to date. That's the easiest way to weed out probable rebounds from something more serious and concrete. You really don't want to fall for someone when you're still in the process of getting over your ex! Rebounding with a fun girl isn't a bad idea but she shouldn't be someone who is ideal date material or match the ideal woman you'd like to date. As long as you're clear in your head about what you're looking for, have all the fun you wish to. The Girl Who Knows Your Situation The best way to deal with this situation is to make her aware of the situation you're in or been through, which will make your intentions clear to her. She will probably not want to get involved thoroughly, knowing what you've been through or are going through and she will also help you deal with it better. If she knows you're still trying to get over you ex, she will work extra hard to make sure you get there. The Girl Who Limits Her Communication You don't want a girl who is extra clingy and is always calling and texting you. You'll see red flags soon enough, seeing how frequent and eager she is communicating and expecting from you. You're in this to have fun post a nasty break up and you don't want constant reminders from your past or any more baggage. The texts and calls can be flirtatious once a while, maintaining a healthy balance between fun and letting go of the past, slowly. The Girl Who Isn't Interested In Small Talk If she doesn't show interest in making small talk at all, and is up for hooking up and just having fun whenever it's convenient for you two, then she's perfect. You don't need obligated pleasantries before asking her out for a drink each time. The Girl You Can Talk To Contradictory to the above mentioned point. it also helps if you find a girl who you can easily talk to about anything under the sun, without getting too attached. This helps you vent out feelings, on occasion and makes you feel lighter. You can have diverse conversations, not necessarily concerning your past and probably fill a certain void, which was left after your last relationship. Maybe, at this point in time you need healthy conversations, which aren't toxic in nature. So if you spend hours on the phone with her, just talking, then it's a great fix. The Girl Who Doesn't Mind Your Lack Of Interest If you want to be aloof about this rebound and do things at your own time and convenience, then find someone similar, who also thrives on the same subject and doesn't feel bad if you don't respond to texts and calls on time. She should be her own person and not be dependent on you in any way. That's the last thing you need when you're trying to get over an ex. The Girl Who's Fun To Hang With Your eventual aim is to get over your past so you need to find someone who can help you do that. It's true, your happiness shouldn't be dependent on just one person or people in general but apart from keeping yourself busy and doing things you love, you can use a person who is always there to make you forget some bad mojo and give you a good time. If she's a dull and boring rebound, you're sure to miss your ex even more! The key to have a happy and fun rebound is to keep things casual and not let anything get to you from the association. The *** should be without strings attached, the conversations shouldn't get too romantic in nature and hanging out shouldn't be dull! After all, this girl will eventually get you out of your own mental prison!
  20. NEW DELHI: Political apathy over the poisonous smog choking India´s capital has led many like businessman Kamal Meattle to take matters into their own hands, with an office building he says pumps air as fresh as from the Swiss Alps. From the outside, the Paharpur Business Centre looks like any modern office block. But inside it is a virtual jungle where rooms and corridors are lined with more than 7,000 potted plants and creepers. The greenhouse terrace, with artificial grass and green walls, houses an "air washing" system that moves polluted outside air through a series of cleaning filters. It is then pushed through the greenhouse where the plants remove bacteria, fungus, carbon dioxide and other toxins, before the air conditioning pumps it to workers on the floors below. "It would be like working in Gulmarg in Kashmir or Davos in Switzerland in this building," 73-year-old Meattle told AFP as he looked out at the smog from the protection of the lush rooftop nursery. "You are actually right now sitting in an air tank," he said, referring to the greenhouse where PM2.5 -- the most harmful particulates in the air -- registered nearly zero compared with 415 outside, according to Paharpur´s monitoring system. The outside level is more than 16 times the World Health Organization´s safe limit. ´I wanted a solution´ A Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduate and trustee of Al Gore´s Climate Reality Project, Meattle began thinking about a clean office project years ago when he rejected doctors´ advice to move away from the polluted capital for his health. "I wanted a solution for myself and I didn´t want to leave Delhi," he said. His centre, whose tenants include Amazon, Samsung and Microsoft, is now rated the city´s healthiest building by the Indian government, and Meattle says people who work there benefit from improved blood oxygen levels, better brain function, and fewer asthma and eye irritation cases. Delhi chokes every winter as cool air traps a toxic blend of pollutants from crop burning, car exhausts, open fires, construction dust and industrial emissions close to the ground. The annual scourge has been particularly bad this season, and short-term measures -- such as shutting factories and restricting car use -- have failed to have a significant impact. In November, doctors declared a public health emergency and schools were shut across the capital. Fumes from backup generators are a central ingredient in the noxious cocktail, but one company is turning them into ink and paint with technology that can capture up to 90 percent of dangerous pollutants. Chakr Innovations, started by graduates from the Indian Institute of Technology, has capitalised on the smoke-belching machines that can be heard across the city. Black is the new green Its Chakr Shield is fitted to generators and converts carbon and other fine particles, including the most harmful PM0.3 and PM2.5 specks, into liquified soot through chemical and heat-exchanging processes. The captured carbon is washed down with a solvent and processed into ink pigment and paints. "What would have otherwise been a waste is captured and reborn to be used as a raw material again," said co-founder Arpit Dhupar, donning a t-shirt that says "black is the new green". Dhupar was inspired by seeing a diesel generator that was running a roadside sugarcane juice stall and turning the wall behind it black in the process. Chakr has fitted machines at more than 18 Delhi offices, and 30 other companies have signed up for the technology, including US giant Dell Computers, which will be using Chakr´s ink for printing on its cardboard boxes. Dhupar said that in 18 months, the machines had collected enough carbon to pollute about 1.5 billion litres of air. "We are running out of clean, breathable air in Delhi and our definitive objective is to make the access to clean air a basic right for everyone," he said. Others want to ensure that right extends to animals, including the high-performance ponies that compete on Delhi´s thriving polo circuit. The Army Polo and Riding Club recently ruled that horses used by the Delhi Army polo team must be allowed twice as many breaks to alleviate the physical stress of playing matches in toxic conditions. "By sheer logic and the levels of pollution that were there in Delhi we thought that it may cause a problem. The longer the pony plays, the exhaustion is that much higher," said the club´s chief executive, Colonel Ravi Rathore.
  21. As 2017 is closing out, here's a thought – of all the days and months spent partying, impressing girls and trying cool new things, how much time did we actually spend with our family? Definitely not enough. Well, we can always start fresh. This New Year, let's put our family first and find cool, new ways to spend more quality time with them. To help you out, we've listed down some fun and entertaining activities you can indulge in with your family to make them feel loved. 1. Plan A Weekly Family Night Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Just one night a week is a great start to make your family feel loved and cared for. You can spend the night karaoke-ing, playing games or simply Netflix and chilling. The important thing is you do it together. 2. Family Vacations Are The Best Way To Bond Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images We often head out for vacations with our friends to discover the different corners of the world, but what about our family? It isn't too difficult or boring to once in a while head out on a vacation with them. You can make it an annual ritual that you'll stick to. Think of places that they would want to visit and get your tickets booked already! 3. Always Have A Meal Together Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Having every meal of the day together might just not be possible, owing to our different schedules and plan, but what you can do instead is fix one meal, preferably breakfast, as a family meal and spend time conversing with each other. From office banter to your views on politics, share it all with your family. 4. Get Together And Share Family Stories Thinkstock Photo/Getty Images Dig out those old photo albums, sit together in a cosy room and listen to your parents tell you how they first met each other! From stories of their romance to saas-bahu drama's in your family, every situation from the past makes for a great story. The more you pay attention to your family and their stories, the more they'll feel loved and needed. 5. Get Your Hands Dirty In The Kitchen Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images Whoever said that men don't need to step into the kitchen forgot that most of the popular chefs around are men! So stop making excuses and step into the kitchen once in a while to help your mother or partner out. You could do the most basic things like handing her the spices or chopping vegetables, it's the gesture that counts. 6. Secure Their Future Thinkstock Photos/Getty Images You already do so much for your family. You ensure that all their needs are met – be it the best car to go around and have a good time, a big comfortable home to feel good and comfortable in, the best school so that your kids can get the best education, new games and gadgets, the best clothing and accessories, etc. However, we all know that life is uncertain and it's best to be prepared for tomorrow. So you need to ensure that the family doesn't have to compromise on the lifestyle you have given them, even when you aren't around. To ensure this, you need to sit them out and plan a Term Insurance policy that will benefit them. Educate them about the uses and benefits of the same. You can invest in a huge term cover at a small premium and ensure that the cover amount will be enough to meet your family's needs even in the absence of the policyholder – the bread earner of the family. Term insurance plan is a form of a life cover which provides security to your family in case of an unfortunate event. You just have to pay a nominal fee of Rs.32.27/- per day for a cover of Rs.1 Crore. With the help of this amount, it will be possible for your family to meet their daily expenses and maintain the lifestyle you have given them and at the same time manage their future expenses. Take a step towards your family's future by calculating your premium here.
  22. “It's party time”. “Dude, Yeaaa”! “Let's get drunk out of our skulls” and the worst one, “WHOOOOOOO”. Yup, it's that time of the year where everyone is acting like they are suddenly hopped up on sugar and Red Bull. via GIPHY There is so much happiness, so much overflowing optimism that some of us just go out of our way to avoid the avalanche of insane cheerfulness. via GIPHY Now I am sure not everyone had a great 2017. It is a simple yet saddening fact. Many of us began the year on a positive note but certain things did not go the way we planned, making this year…well…a big fat bummer. via GIPHY So with seven days to go, here are seven things that will truly help you lighten that load in your chest, and begin 2018 on a positive note. 1. Treat That Friend You Have Ignored Or Taken For Granted via GIPHY You know who I am talking about. Work, studies, family, 'other' friends may have taken you away from that one person who was always there for you. Stop being a jerk and call them up right now. Never, ever take those who are always there for you for granted. 2. Bring A Smile On Your Roommate's Face via GIPHY Could be anything really. How about actually cleaning the room? Like REALLY clean it. Don't wait for them to ask, just do it. Surprise them with a 'clean' start and watch them light up with relief. A happy roommate equals to peace of mind. OR you can just buy them a large crate of beer…like I said before, anything that makes them happy. 3. Bring/Send Your Mom Flowers via GIPHY If flowers don't really work, then something else that she really likes. Nothing else can make your soul sing than watching your mother smile happily because of you. How about you make her happy for a change instead of driving her crazy? 4. Scare The Living Crap Out Of Your Sibling via GIPHY This is my personal favourite. Now I don't mean jump out the door and say 'boo'. Come on! Plan something elaborate, film the whole thing and scare the daylights out of them. And then the best part? Make it up to them by spoiling them with whatever they want. Relations between siblings are the ones that get taken for granted the fastest. Show them you care…by giving them a scare! 5. Give It Back To That Bully. Don't Hold Back via GIPHY They could be anywhere and be anyone really. A colleague, a classmate, a teacher, your boss, flatmate or even a family member. Point is they made this year a living hell for you and it's time you give it back. Now I'm not asking you to go into full on Rambo mode, but confront them instead. I know you have been thinking about it and avoiding it, but enough. Tell them upfront like a mature person and get that load off your chest. Don't carry their negativity into your New Year. 6. Hunt Down Your Childhood Best Bud via GIPHY Use the power of social media my friends and track him/her down. Honestly, the Internet is not being used enough by most of us. Relive those golden memories with your childhood pal and watch how the happiness meter in your brain shoots through your skull. It will take work and time and effort. But by jove, the end result will be worth it. Start buzzing your old friends and go get your long, lost friend. 7. Pour Your Heart Out To Your Crush via GIPHY Just let it out my friend. You kept walking around all year with that big iron ball in your chest and now it's time to get that heavy hunk of metal out. What do you have to lose anyway? Don't begin a New Year with baggage and regrets.
  23. Tiger Woods watches his shot after teeing off on the 2nd hole in the final round of the Quicken Loans National golf tournament at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia, US, August 2, 2016. REUTERS/Rafael Suanes/USA TODAY Sports/Files Former world number one Tiger Woods said on Friday he has decided to end his working relationship with swing coach Chris Como, opting instead to fly solo in his latest comeback from injury. Woods, who returned to competition three weeks ago after a nearly 10-month layoff during which he had spinal fusion surgery, began working with Como after a forgettable 2014 season during which injuries limited him to seven official PGA Tour events, missing the cut in two. ?Since my fusion surgery, I have been working hard to relearn my own body and golf swing. I?ve done this by primarily relying on my feel and previous years of hard work with Chris,? the 41-year-old said in a statement posted on his official Twitter account. ?For now, I think it?s best for me to continue to do this on my own. I?m grateful to Chris Como for his past work, and I have nothing but respect for him.? Woods swung freely and with no sign of back pain at the Hero World Challenge, where earlier this month he began his latest comeback and finished tied for ninth in an 18-man exhibition that featured eight of the world?s top 10 golfers. The 14-times major champion worked with swing coach Butch Harmon to begin his professional career, then switched to Hank Haney in 2004. Woods jumped to Sean Foley in 2010, whom he worked with for four years. Como, in a statement provided to Golf Channel, said when he began working with Woods he was asked to help the golfer utilize his own instincts and feel while playing pain-free and that he felt he accomplished the goal. ?Tiger is ready to have an incredible next run in his career. I?m eager to watch what will be one of the most exciting sports comebacks of all time,? Como said in the statement. ?I will continue to be a close friend and resource to him and am extremely excited about Tiger?s future, the golf industry and for the fans of golf.?

  25. Everyone, once in their lives, gets stuck in a *** slump or a dry spell which may lead to absolute clueless ness on how to end the phase. It could be because you just got out of a long term relationship and weren't really ready to hit the sack with another person or you just haven't had enough opportunity with women to have random *** here and there. Whatever it is, it's really nothing to panic about. A sexual dry spell can last for a year to a few months or even a few weeks. If you were regular at having *** and are experiencing a slump period, then even a week or two without it may seem unbearable and when you do get out of it, you may be a little confused about re-exploring your sexuality. Especially when you come out of a long term relationship where you've been having *** with just one person and want to come out of the slump stage. It's a tad difficult but definitely achievable. Here are a few ways you can get back in the game like you never left, to begin with! Get In Shape Exercising really helps release a lot of pent-up sexual energy. It's good to hit the gym or do some yoga to release held up testosterones in order to not rush your *** drive when the times comes. Plus exercising makes you a happier person, so you're not frustrated or grumpy due to the lack of ***. Exercising also makes you perform and last better in bed, if you haven't had *** in a while i.e. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Go On At Least 10 Dates Before Having *** Due to the dry spell, your expectations to have *** must have risen or lowered so it's wise to test the waters before diving in. Go on at least 10 dates with different women or the same to figure the aspirations you want to set for yourself and build that confidence you probably lost out on during your dry spell. You will probably know, through going on different dates, how to go about the game all over again and if you want to indulge in just casual *** or emotionally involving *** or both. Once you build that criteria, your ego and your self confidence will be boosted on its own. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Indulge in 'Quickies' Quickies don't necessarily lead to *** but they lead to sensual stimulation and increase in oxytocin levels. If you're having a dry spell while in a relationship it is best to indulge in short and intense cuddles or quickies that don't lead to *** but build anticipation and sexual self esteem. If you're just going out on dates to build that credibility again, making out sessions or quickies are a good way to get back to your active *** life. It also builds heaps of confidence to eventually go all the way. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Dial Down The Graphic Content While it's healthy to indulge in porn and give yourself a treat every now and then, it's actually counter productive if you're trying to nurse your *** life back to good health. Porn can get a bit addictive during a dry spell because all your sexual energy is channelled there and there are very little attempt is made at finding something real. Porn may satisfy a short term craving but it's the wrong form of nutrition if you're trying to break a pattern. Men who spend hours indulging in a digital fantasy may face social and sexual problems connecting with women altogether. We aren't saying stop watching porn altogether but if you wanna get out of that dry spell, log off for a bit and get real! (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Change Your Style Maybe it's time to change your style and your attitude and avoid fads. Keep it simple, keep it classic and create you own style that will organically attract women to you. Maybe you're still supporting a hairstyle that was big in the early 2000's or the clothes you wear were last seen on Clint Eastwood. A little change in style couldn't hurt really. (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Try Out Online Dating There are 1000 different ways to meet women and you really need variety while coming out of a dry spell. If you're out from a long term relationship, it wouldn't be such a bad idea to embrace online dating and see the kinda women you want to test the waters with. You'll be surprised to know how many fish you actually come across! (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Be Prepared For Bedroom Malfunction(s) After a long sexual haul, there is a possibility you may not be able to perform in bed as per your expectation. Pre-mature ejaculation or even flaccidity is a very temporary symptom of a sexual dry spell. There will always be fears, anxieties and pressure that will be part and parcel of someone trying to break away from a dry spell. The trick is to not let them get to you and try and relax. The transition, although may take time, is quite smooth sans the nervousness. Just don't let the panic take you back to the slump! (c)Thinkstock/Getty Images Apart from all these things you can try, you must remember a dry spell is part psychological as well. It's your brain going into sleep mode, getting comfortable with not fending for a basic cardinal need. Sooner or later, the lack of *** does affect you psychosomatically and if you realise it's affecting you in a negative way, you know how to avoid a dry spell now.
