  2. For all those who missed watching R Madhavan in Hindi films, his new project is bound to make their day. No, he hasn't come up with a film just yet but it is just as good. Our very own Maddy is here with a digital series called 'Breathe' with Amazon Prime and after looking at the trailer, your perception about him will change. Completely. Known for mostly doing 'good-guy' roles, Madhavan is playing the role of a father who can go to any lengths to save the life of his child. Basically, he is shedding the 'good-guy' image and boy, he is doing it REALLY well. The digital series has been in the news since months, owing to its chilling posters and teasers that Maddy kept posting on his social media. Like this one. Get ready for a breathless experience. #BreatheTeaser in 3 days! @BreatheAmazon @AmazonVideoIN pic.twitter.com/QgJNenGNuz — Ranganathan Madhavan (@ActorMadhavan) January 2, 2018 And this too. And now, after what felt like years, the full trailer of the series is finally here and has left us wanting for more. Who doesn't want to see more of this talented man? The trailer pretty much tells the entire plot of the story. Madhavan, as told before, is a doting father whose son is in his dying stages because of severe lung damage. © Amazon Prime Video In order to save his life, he needs more blood belonging to the AB negative group, which unfortunately does not have a lot of donors. © Amazon Prime Video This is enough to turn Madhavan's character into a monster that'd go to any extent to save his son's life, even if that includes murdering people. And by murders, we mean LOTS of murders. © Amazon Prime Video Have a look at the chilling trailer: The show is set to be Amazon's first trilingual digital series and will stream in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The series also stars Amit Sadh and Sapna Pabbi and is set to release on 26th January across 200+ countries and territories worldwide.
  3. Were you waiting for the Mercedes C and E Class luxury revive? Remember from nearly half a decade ago the E Class your friend got for his wedding and you wished you were the one getting married? Well, the luxo-sedans are back and with better mechanics-- so impressive, you'll wish you were an Ambani. The cars we're talking about were on display at the Detroit Motor Show 2018. We're talking about the 4MATIC+ luxury sedan entourage, in three different variants, all glammed up with a hybrid powertrain! Source: Mercedes Say hello to the shiny Mercedes-AMG CLS 53, E 53 and E 53 Cabriolet all wheel drives. We hope your heart function remains normal after a look at these gorgeous pieces of high end mechanics, especially the Cabriolet, we've forged a special connection with it! Source: Mercedes From a tastefully done front fascia to the detail on the wheel rims, the exterior of both, the coupe and cabriolet, is nothing short of urban-chic, something you would expect from the design team of the marque automobile maker and they don't fail you. Source: Mercedes The CLS coupe, for instance is moulded to perfection, and in its top-down stance the rear end of the E 53 cabriolet looks like the bodywork of a futuristic cruiser vehicle, especially in its black and silver trim colour scheme. Imagine taking your significant other for a ride in the cabriolet for Valentine's Day next year, if you can manage to get one on rent in India, that is. They are both very satisfying to look at, soothing, almost. Source: Mercedes It is the AMG powertrains kick in the adrenaline though. Both C and E 53 get: - A six-cylinder bi-turbo 3 litre engine. - AMG's latest EQ Boost electric engine support system. - The pull of 430 ponies + a 21hp additional power up generated by the EQ Boost. - A 0-100kmph sprint duration of about 4.3 seconds. - Top speeds of about 200kmph. - 4MATIC+ all-wheel drives. - A 9-speed transmission. If the 53 series are the machines of your dreams then it's time to find yourself a rich partner or work hard and get somewhere in life instead of building sand castles in your head. Deliveries should be made by the latter half of this year, so you barely have any time left. Get on it, chop chop!
  4. 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.
  5. What's your dream job? The one that gives you recognition, fame, success, respect and money? Yeah, that's all of us. However, the ultimate dream would be to do nothing and get paid. Turns out, a travel agency has answered all our prayers. A Swedish travel agency is on the lookout for professional 'slackers' and want to pay you for literally doing nothing! © Pexels The profile involves you being a 'fakeation specialist' and you will basically need to chill in shorts and lounge around as they click you with a background of the Mediterranean Sea. Sounds fantastic, right? Talking about the qualifications that the job requires, the list includes 'not thinking out of box' and must love sitting and lying down. The position is based out of Stockholm and like all good things come to an end, this job is also short term. The term is from 22nd January to 4th February only; so in case you are interested, you can apply here. (https://www.tui.se/professionalslacker/) The position only requires 4 slackers, so the competition is crazy. They will be paid on an hourly basis. All you need to do is send some pictures of you chilling around. Oh, and forget about the need of a professional resume as well.
  6. While some of us consume regular milk for breakfast every morning, there are a few people who can't enjoy the same privilege. I am talking about people who are either lactose intolerant or have turned vegan. But the good news for such people is that now your choice of milk is not just limited to cow and buffalo milk. In recent years, almond milk has gained popularity, even in India and is now easily available at most supermarkets. What is Almond Milk? © Thinkstock As the name itself suggests, almond milk is made using almonds. There are various commercial brands that sell almond milk but you can also make it at home. The benefits of the commercial almond milk are that some of them are fortified with vitamins and minerals and some of them offer a choice of delicious flavors. Good Option for Weight watchers Another thing with almond milk is that it has a fewer number of calories than cow's milk. One glass of around 250ml of unsweetened almond milk contains only 50 calories while normal milk contains around 150 calories. Therefore, if your aim is to lose weight but you still want to include milk in your diet, almond milk is an excellent replacement. Low in Sugar and Lactose Free Almond milk naturally contains very little sugar. This makes it an ideal choice for people who are diabetic as well. A glass of almond milk contains only 1-2 grams of carbs, which is essentially all dietary fiber. However, flavored milk contains a lot of sugar, so make sure you read the label carefully before buying the product. Another big advantage of almond milk is that it is naturally lactose-free, which makes it perfect for people who are lactose intolerant. Lactose intolerance is a condition in which people are unable to digest lactose, which is a natural sugar present in milk. It is caused by a deficiency in lactase, the enzyme which is responsible for breaking down lactose in the body. People who are lactose intolerant have symptoms like stomach pain, bloating and gas after consuming milk. It is a very common problem and affects almost 75% of the world population. Ideal for Vegans © Thinkstock Vegans are people who do not consume any dairy or meat products. In recent years, a lot of people have opted for this trending vegan diet. Though it's a personal choice to go vegan, they generally miss the milk that they consumed during breakfast or in their favorite milk shake. Since almond milk is made from nuts, it is a perfect option for vegans. Other Nutrient Content Not just protein, almond milk also contains other vital vitamins and minerals too. It is a good source of Vitamin E, Calcium and Potassium. A glass of almond milk can meet around 30% of your daily Vitamin E requirement alone. It also contains calcium and potassium which are important for the proper functioning of your body.

  7. If you're dating the deadliest fire sign out of all the zodiacs then let us wish you boatloads of luck! Dating a Sagittarius woman is like walking a thin rope and if you ever fall you'd probably land on thin ice . Okay, it isn't so bad and if you're in love with a Sagittarius girl you need to understand that love is an eternal mystery for her. It's a little tough to break her exterior to get the mush out but if you do manage to do that, it's a lot of fun thereon. A Sagittarius girl loves looking for a man who can match up to her mental and physical strength and her insatiable desire for a lifetime of adventure. To many qualifications needed for the job? Well, I promise once you qualify, you'll be the happiest man alive. Independent and trustworthy, she's going to make it hard for you to ever forget her. Truth And Only The Truth Sagittarius women cannot handle lies. That's the first thing to remember if you're out to date one. Her truth is based on a deep understanding of how the world works and not frivolous encounters and conversations. She's extremely open minded to conversations that range from philosophy to religion and if she's inquisitive about something she'll get to the bottom of it. She's extremely curious about everything and if she catches you lying even about the simplest of things, God bless your soul! © Facebook/Taylor Swift Travel Freak This woman loves packing her bags and leaving for the unknown. She will also expect her man, or at least try and find a man who loves doing the same. Adventure is literally her adrenaline in life and no destination is ever too dangerous or boring for her. Pro tip: if you ever want to strike up a conversation with a Sagittarius woman, ask her about the last place she travelled to and that will get her going, explaining every little escapade she's had in life. If you're already dating a Sagittarian, then definitely take as many trips as you can with her. © Britney Spears Papa Don't Preach One thing you will always get in a relationship with a Sagittarian is ample space and time. She loves her space and thinks it to be sacrosanct and she will never compromise on it, no matter what. If she has a circle of friends, she may not want you in it, when she's around them because for her time out means a good amount of mental space from her significant other too. This does not mean she's aloof or callous about the person she's in love with. It simply means she loves her independence and wants her relationship to grow organically and healthily. The biggest mistake you can make though is try and restrict her and make her do things your way. She'll break away and never want to be with you again! © Facebook/Nicki Minaj On Your Face Her frank and outspoken nature has her misunderstood most times because sometimes in a social gathering it may be uncalled for. But if she doesn't like something, there is no stopping her from voicing it out. There isn't any malice in her intent, she just likes to call a spade a spade. This also makes her suffer from a bad foot in mouth disease! You'll see soon enough! © Viral Bhayani Easy Going Is In Her Blood She has no hang ups with the way she dresses and she believes in minimalism. On a regular day you'll find her hanging out in baggy denims or sportswear, sans makeup and accessories. She thinks that these adornments hide the 'real' her. Her simple, Bohemian ways are quite endearing indeed! © Viral Bhayani The *** Is On Fire A Sagittarius woman sets everything on fire, especially in bed. Although intellectual stimulation turns her on more than physical contact, she's a fireball in bed, once she opens up to you. Self reliant and confident, you will find a sensual animal in her who is always thrilled at the idea of making love and sees it as an adventure and if she's head over heels in love with you, she's up for doing just about anything between the sheets. So you need to be quite creative in order to give her what she wants and if you're bold and brainy, you're already there! © Viral Bhayani There isn't one dull day with this one so if you already have her, you're one lucky bloke, if you don't, well then what are you waiting for?
  8. If there's one all-time favourite travel destination that you can never get bored of, it's Dubai!

Enjoy a musical evening at the Arabian concert nights Visit Dubai Ya Habeeb, if you've ever heard Arabian music, then you might actually forget grooving to your Bollywood beats.

Experience the festive atmosphere by the beach Visit Dubai You really don't need to fly all the way to the islands, as just this one place is enough for you to soak up the sun and enjoy the beach waves.

It's time to take your first international trip of the year. Book your tickets to Dubai already!
  9. Steve Jobs – the Apple Giant – was an American tech-visionary, entrepreneur, inventor, business magnate and industrial designer. He was the chairman, CEO, and co-founder of Apple Inc. – a brand that revolutionized the way we live. He was also a majority shareholder at Pixar Animation Studios – a Walt Disney Company. Despite his boundless success, Jobs lived quite a modest life. He lived in a simple house in the neighborhood of Palo Alto, with an open driveway. He kept himself rooted and never let success get to his head. He was a genius man who led an ordinary life. However, he had a unique hobby, related to his cars. © nextweb Jobs was pretty infamous for his liking for the slot of the parking lot dedicated to the differently-abled. He was also considered an outlaw for driving around in his favorite car – silver Mercedes SL55 AMG, with a blank license plate. Yes! You read that right. There was no number plate on Jobs' car! It has been a mystery as to how he managed to drive a number-less car. Questions surrounding this weird penchant and how he pulled it off have always been flowing around on social media. Speculations like “he paid the fine every time he was caught” or “he had some special leverages granted by the Government of California” have been around. Some people have even gone to the extent of assuming that since he was stinking rich, maybe he bought a new car every month to keep up with his acquired taste for blank number plates! Well, no matter the inconsistent theories, we have solved this mystery for you. We all know that Jobs was a genius. This brainiac had somehow found a loophole in the 'California Vehicle Code' – the state rulebook containing traffic laws. And, it was through this loophole that he managed to drive a numberless number plate car without actually breaking the law. © autoblog According to the 'California Vehicle Code', any person who owns a brand new car has a time limit of six months to get a registered number plate and fix it to the vehicle. So, Jobs made an official arrangement with the car company where he could change cars after the completion of sixth months of the lease. This enabled him to exchange his old silver Mercedes SL55 AMG for another new one every time. Hence, he actually never broke laws as he was not required to use any number plate for his car during the given period!
  10. We are living in one of the best times possible and the credit partly goes to the ever growing technology, which is developing at a speed faster than that of Usain Bolt. It is because of technology that things which appeared unimaginable decades earlier are now a child's play for most of us. One such technology is the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle aka drones. © Pexels Apart from its conventional use in the military and for delivery purpose, people have managed to find quirky and unusual ways to use drones, like racing, pizza delivery, storm chasing, playing pranks, for surveillance and more. However, of all these, one of the most beautiful and possibly the perfect usage of drones is for aerial photography and these pictures are proof. Dronestagram is a Paris based photo sharing community that brings together photographers from all corners of the world, who are passionate about drone photography. Like every year, this time too they organized their annual International Drone Photography Contest for 2017 and after receiving thousands of entries, the top 20 have been shortlisted. Waterlily © helios1412 Kefalonia Melissani Cave © Calin Stan Stairway To Heaven © jcourtial Salt Fields © helios1412 These flying robots have managed to capture some of the most breathtaking and mesmerizing moments, which until now were hidden from our naked eyes.

  11. Let's give the lad a 'Certificate of Participation' first. For unknowingly or casually, raining on the 'fade' parade in life. A hairstyle, that was once introduced into the world by grooming gods like David Beckham and Zayn Malik, and glorified by a million humans across the globe. So with hundred of pages of visual proof, it's safe to say, that Dhoni too succumbed to the 'do at one point in his life. And what started as just a casual grooming move years ago has now become the cricketer's way of life. Over time, however, the inventor of the 'Helicopter shot', Mahendra Singh Dhoni has put out his variations of the haircut on display in public. While most have been versions of a medium-length fade, we did see moments of a low-fade as well. All in all, until now, he's had a great run at acing the decade's biggest hair trend. Looking back at a few of his best 'fade' moments till date: © Times Of India © Times of India © BCCI © Instagram/MS Dhoni Fans Rounding it up, let's give it to him: he's excelled at taking the 'do from casual settings to highly formal press conferences too. Proving, that the 'fade' is clearly one of the biggest highlights of his life. But as it is with every worldly process, a few body changes happen over time. To say it out straight: over the course of time, of course Dhoni's hair colour turned to 'salt and pepper'. Hence, the need for hair colouring arose (which we're sure he succumbed to) when we hardly saw any moments of the 'salt' on him (kudos, man). But if a recent Instagram post that's making the rounds is any indication, looks like he's turned to indifferent times: Daddy's Girl â¤â¤ #Ziva with papa #mahendrasinghdhoni ððð How cute they both are... @mahi7781 @sakshisingh_r A post shared by Bollywood'S Kids (@bollywood_kids) on Jan 11, 2018 at 4:52am PST Caught candid by the bugs with his baby daughter 'Ziva', Dhoni stands for a big salt and pepper in the image above. Notice how the crease line of the fade is almost snow-like and only gradually turning to the colour black (as you move upwards). The centre of the mane, however, is quite a spiked-Mohawk hybrid and not forgetting, also short enough for very easy maintenance. Which salon did he head to and who's his damn barber, are answers we're trying to find on google right now. In all probability, however, we're certain that it's Sapna Bhavnani's scissor magic once again!
  12. Did you know that everything we learn is actually stored in our brain, and the brain can't store information if it doesn't physically change in some (usually routine) way? That means that the connections between the neurons in our brains should be changing systematically. This is known as rewiring your brain for the output you want out of it. To actually tap that side of yourself, you will need to sharpen your brain with various helpful activities. You yourself possess the power to improve your brain's capability through mental training that will impact your overall performance. Here is a list of such activities which will help you achieve success. 1. Practice brain aerobics. © Daily Health Post Practice makes perfect and the same goes for our brain when we regularly practice something that creates new neural patterns. The more the connections, the better the chances of your success will be. You can play chess, sudoku, crossword puzzles and any such activity that requires deep thinking. Most successful people allot at least 15 to 30 minutes to any activity that requires thinking. You should do the same. This is what billionaire investor Mark Cuban has to say on this subject, "What does it take to be a successful entrepreneur? It takes a willingness to learn, to be able to focus, to absorb information, and to always realize that business is a 24/7 job…" Just like you work on physical activities to keep your body in shape so you should do to keep your brain in a healthy shape to deliver desired results 2. Look for fresh ideas. © SlideShare If you want a new neural connection to form, you will need more new activities to always keep it fresh. Any new kind of information that will help you achieve your goals will create a database in your brain which can be accessed anytime, as required. For example,if you are interested in tennis then why not take some lessons and track your progress? You were interested in something challenging and the fact that you finally did it will ultimately strengthen your brain muscles and the belief to be successful in any field. 3. Visualize your future self © RichifyLife Have you heard about the visualization technique? It could be based on your memory of the past or it could be as simple as imagining yourself in a certain situation in future. Here, we are talking about the latter. While doing so, you will attract the needed energy to make that vision a reality. If you aspire to be a millionaire by the end of 2019, you should imagine that kind of a lifestyle, your priorities, your schedule, the kind of people you will meet and the attitude you will have. So, the next time you feel a lack of motivation, visualise yourself in that situation and see if you want that outcome or not and then act on it. 4. Focus your energy on a long-term goal. © Millo Someone wise once said, “If you don't build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs.” This is the only reality, my friend. You need to decide on what you want from your life and act on it. You should never offer the driving seat to anyone else. If you are feeling demotivated then maybe you need to think about your long-term goals. Even though it is not an easy job. Even rich people who once had money or passion as their biggest dream, now crave philanthropic deeds. So, your goals may vary but they should be big and challenging enough so that they keep you accelerated towards them. If you do that and enjoy the process, then no one can stop you from achieving what you want from life. 5. Shift to an exponential mindset © CodeCondo Below is the simplification of what an exponential mindset looks like. Such kind of a mindset takes thinking to the next level as it aspires for greater things which could be ten times larger than what a normal person would imagine. A person with such a mindset anticipates faster growth as they can already see it coming. They even look at failures as a part of the equation but always end up being ten times ahead, preparing for anything that you have to deal with, positive or not.
  13. A friend once said, “Parents falling ill should be a fundamental wrong.” As I helped mom get up, the words resounded in my ears. A parent's illness is disturbing. We're so used to being cared for by our parents, that we forget time will soon reverse the roles. As kids, we're selfish brats and in our minds, continue to maintain the status quo. If there's one thing we take for granted the most in the whole wide world, it's our parents, especially our mothers. Need aloo parathas on a Sunday morning – mom. Need advice on how to treat that annoying cold – mom. As kids when we fell sick, there was just one word that soothed our petrified hearts – mom. © Facebook/Ankush Bahuguna As we grow older and our parents much older, the inevitable happens. They become weaker, frailer, and vulnerable. They may put up a façade of being strong or they may demand more of your time – either way, they are no longer invincible like you believed in childhood. When you hit your pinky toe against the bed or spot a lizard in your bathroom, most of us still have a universal exclamation – “ma”/ “mummy” – that word we are so used to calling out in times of danger. When parents fall ill – god forbid it, but they do – that's when it hits you – that old equation of superman and citizen is permanently altered. You have to be the superman now. Working in 9-to-6 jobs with hectic schedules, we are all trying our best to make something great out of life. Earn more money, socialize with friends and colleagues, find love, sweat out the stress in the gym, ace that promotion – there's a lot to do and there's little space for parents in our everyday corporate routine. They understand – they want their children to make the most out of their lives, and so they resign themselves to the margins of our lives, prodding us gently every once in a while to register their existence. © YouTube/Axis Bank Sometimes they fall ill and all hell breaks loose. We realise our tightly scheduled lives are built in a way that there's no space for a parent falling ill. Our lives come crashing down and suddenly we are transported to a different world – their world. A world of yellow lightbulbs and old Hindi songs, a world of milk porridge and antacids, a world of reading the newspaper in the morning sun. That world is so unknown to us, it baffles us, makes us uneasy and we writhe in discomfort. We have come so far from their world, trying to build a different world of our own, that we have left them far behind. It's no one's fault – don't blame yourself for single-mindedly focusing on your life; it's a necessary evil. Blame the third world economy for overworking our parents, blame the society for the lack of support systems for the elderly, blame the law of nature. The blame is ours too, yes, when we turn a deaf ear to their soft pleas for our time, when we turn a blind eye to their aching knees and boxes of tablets, when we cancel that trip home every time thinking next year. © UTV Motion Pictures But when they fall ill, life stops and you struggle to make sense of this new slow and uneventful world. It's difficult to see a loved one in pain, more so if that loved one has been your superman. As you grow up, a lot many myths are shattered, the most painful of them being this – that your superman is mortal. You have to reverse the role you enjoyed all your life and the harsh realization doesn't come gently; it comes as abruptly as your guts belching out last night's bad food. It comes when you get a call in the middle of the night from your mother sleeping in the next room. It comes at the doctor's clinic when he lists down a myriad tests and medicines and explains to your reeling head all the permutations and combinations the medicines have to be taken in – how did your parents even remember your medicines schedules or your school time-tables and never messed up even once, year after year? How did they remain awake all night when you burned with fever, how did they wake up early in the morning to pack your tiffin and drop you to the bus stop every day without fail for 12 long years? The benchmark they set is too high, too superhuman for us to reach. Sometimes you wish our society would take it a little easy and parents shouldn't be required to be so selfless raising their children. Bunking school because your mom wanted to sleep in till a little late or your dad wanted to finish his newspaper in the morning should have been perfectly fine. © UTV Motion Pictures We cannot be as selfless and giving as they were. We cannot leave our lives behind. But if our current lives cannot handle a parent's illness, it's time to pause and rethink. If your job doesn't let you cater to your ailing parent, is the money even worth it? They understand, mostly. Sometimes it's just the moral support they need, the assurance that you're there. Sometimes, a single message asking about their health is more meaningful than hours spent with them with hardly any conversation. When they are ill, they want our love but the last thing they want is to see our lives suffering. It's almost as if they're apologetic for falling ill – “Sorry, beta you had to cancel your meeting for me. I'll be fine, you should go,” they'll say. All we have to say is, “It's okay ma (or pa), come let's have tea.”
  14. Do you remember the longest time you've gone without masturbating? Maybe it's time to think about it now. Masturbating is a normal part of life and is even extremely healthy according to a lot of studies. But, it turns out that there is also a movement that promotes the benefits of abstaining from masturbation for long periods of time. It became popular on Reddit after a thread linked this movement to a Chinese study which basically claimed that not masturbating could raise your testosterone by 45 percent. Well, that sounds incredible, doesn't it? Taking up this challenge, Luke Eilers decided to see how long he could hold off on 'touching himself'. The movement is appropriately called the 'No Fap Movement' and the biggest thing that motivated Luke was the realization that he was addicted to porn. He admitted that he felt a lot of shame when he finished watching some racy adult videos. Moreover, he also realized that he suffered from a lack of motivation, focus and productivity. Talking about this with fellow YouTuber Andrew Hales, Luke explains how he feels since he started his journey: “The way I would describe it is I kind of just feel like 10 percent better in loads of areas like motivation, confidence, energy, mental clarity. Lots of people talk about superpowers and it completely changes their life; every once in a while, I would get spurts of that.” But only 10% in more than a year? Maybe next time he can abstain for like 4,000 days to complete the 100%. Luke also made sure to clarify that even though he didn't 'pleasure himself'; he still had *** and even looked at porn, but strictly no masturbation. Apparently, as long as you're ejaculating with a partner then that's considered 'healthy'. He also mentioned that he had discovered a new kind of *** where both the people get down and dirty really slowly for more than an hour, but never actually complete the act. He hasn't tried that yet, but he's very interested to find out how it works. But, one of the best things that came out of his 'no fap' experiment was that because of these behavioural and physiological changes, Luke has taken it upon himself to go into amateur therapy via Skype in order to help out guys who are struggling with porn addiction, depression, social anxiety or who just want to talk about women. Such a noble thing to do. Andrew, the guy who interviewed Luke, also saw some changes in himself after trying out the 'No Fap Movement' for just 9 days. Wow, this thing works quickly. So, are you ready to take up this challenge or not?
  15. What is 'Race' without Saif Ali Khan? Every time you think of this film, Saif's character Ranvir Singh comes to your mind. The persona of the character that he created is not an easy one to forget. Such was his charm that not just the first instalment but even the sequel did wonders at the box office. From his quick-badass wit to his style of dressing, everything he did just made us love him even more. So naturally, it did come as a big surprise when Saif's name wasn't in the cast of 'Race 3'. Yeah, it was quite disappointing and we will not lie about that. The third instalment of the franchise has Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem, Freddy Daruwala and Daisy Shah. Well, that's an interesting medley of talent and Abbas-Mustan totally knows how to make a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seats. But Saif's presence will be missed. Recently, Saif was asked why he isn't a part of the film and, speaking to IANS, he revealed that the film was, of course, offered to him but he didn't connect with the part that was offered. © Tips “Ramesh Taurani said I'm making a completely different movie this time with a totally different story. I was offered a part but Salman Khan is the best thing to happen to anybody. He's the biggest star in the country. I didn't feel a connection myself with the part I was offered. So, I decided to do something else.” No doubt Salman makes entertaining films but we will miss Saif for sure!
  16. Movies have been an integral part of most of our lives. If you've spent your lifetime cribbing about never getting to watch good movies, it is the right time to visit the nearest DVD store because you won't be around for too long. 2012 is close on your heels which is why you should grab the below listed moves and be a part of the history of international cinema. Here are 10 Hollywood movies you must watch before you die. The Godfather Trilogy 'The Godfather' trilogy takes you into the world of gangsters through the combined brilliance of Francis Ford Coppola, Al Pacino and Mario Puzo. Star Quote: "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse." The Shawshank Redemption The highlight of this movie is the simplistic yet endearing take on human relationships. It might not entirely influence you to alter the way you live your life but will definitely help you realize the importance of building healthy relationships. Star Quote: "I guess it comes down to a simple choice. Get busy living or get busy dying." Fight Club This is the ultimate guy movie which shows how two men build an almost global 'organisation' of sorts for people to vent out their anger and frustration. The pulsating movement of the plot will keep you glued till the 'end of time'. Star Quote: "This is your life and it's ending one minute at a time" Raging Bull Another story of an angry young man played by the insanely talented Robert De Niro. It deals with the rise and fall of a temperamental boxer whose personal life becomes a wreck because of the same temper. Star Quote: "If you win, you win. If you lose, you still win" Pulp Fiction Believe us when we say this movie will take you on a roller-coaster ride. It revels in violence, profanity and generous use of drugs, while the speed, that is crucial to the movie, will definitely make your head spin. Watch Quentin Tarantino prove why he is the boss in making movies that almost always have a cult following. Star Quote: "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children.." Saving Private Ryan Watching this movie is bound to be a heart-breaking experience as it explores the uncharted perils of war. Also, you don't actually need a reason to watch a Steven Speilberg film starring Tom Hanks, do you? Star Quote: "I'll need a wheelchair before this war is over." Apocalypse Now Yet another movie by Francis Ford Coppola, 'Apocalypse Now' is considered by many to be the best war movie ever made. An adaptation of Joseph Conrad's novel, this movie is truly 'a vision of hell' owing to the darkness of theme and action. It is also counted amongst the best movies ever made. Star Quote: "I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for twelve hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn’t find one of ‘em, not one stinkin’ dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like… victory. Someday this war’s gonna end…" One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest We're really hoping you've read the book. If you haven't, you probably don't know the significance of this in the list. Just like the book, the movie leaves quite an impact on the viewer. Be a art of the experience that so many people treasure, before you die. Star Quote: "Why don't ya shut your goddamn mouth and play some music?" GoodFellas Another Martin Scorsese film makes the cut. Dealing with the life of a gangster, this movie was a classic in this genre. In fact, it was considered a benchmark in the '90s and was hugely lauded in various award ceremonies. Star Quote: "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster" The Gold Rush You cannot possibly go to your grave without watching a Charlie Chaplin movie, can you? 'The Gold Rush' is a quintessential Charlie Chaplin film, complete with some great comic and emotional moments. An added advantage of watching this movie would be that you could surely have something to discuss about in case you meet him in heaven. Star Quote: You do know Charlie Chaplin's movies were made in the silent era, right? P.S. The author has deliberately avoided the inclusion of movies like 'Star Wars', 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy, The 'Rocky' series, etc because she assumes that you've already seen this movies.

  17. You know you are in for some interesting scoop, the moment you hear the name Ram Gopal Varma. If anyone tells you that he does not know who RGV is, look at him closely because that's what a liar looks like. There is no way on earth that anyone can forget or not know RGV; the man is famous for his nasty tweets more than the movies he makes. But, let's keep that discussion for some other day and focus of his directorial skills. © Twitter Ram Gopal Varma is one fine director who is known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to making good movies. After giving us movies like 'Sarkar', 'Rangeela', 'Veerappan', 'Satya' and 'Nishabd'; RGV is back in action with his upcoming project and the cast will definitely leave you spellbound. Varma has worked with none other than Mia Malkova, the popular adult film star, who has helped many boys evolve into men. © Instagram Honestly, we were surprised to an extent that we thought this can't be true, but it is and Mia has confirmed this news herself, by sharing the movie's poster on Twitter. Interestingly, the title of the movie is 'God, *** and Truth' and this poster is totally NSFW. Indian film maker Ram Gopal Varma shot a video with me in Europe titled GOD , *** and TRUTH I will be the 2nd adult star after @SunnyLeone to be shot by an Indian feature film maker @Rgvzoomin pic.twitter.com/0lfaipKhAA — Mia Malkova (@MiaMalkova) 11 January 2018 The movie has been shot in Europe. Taking to Twitter, Mia wrote “Indian film maker Ram Gopal Varma shot a video with me in Europe titled 'GOD, *** and TRUTH'.” She further wrote, “I will be the 2nd adult star after @SunnyLeone to be shot by an Indian feature film maker.” Well, here Mia is kind of wrong because Varma has not worked on any film with Sunny and the man tweeted the same himself. He wrote, “Hey Mia it was such an elevating and thought provoking experience to film #GodSexTruth. I never shot with @SunnyLeone but will never forget the experience of shooting 'GOD, *** and TRUTH'.” Hey Mia it was such an elevating and thought provoking experience to film #GodSexTruth ..I never shot with @SunnyLeone but will never forget the experience of shooting GOD, *** and Truth https://t.co/rz5iwxHarI — Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) 11 January 2018 In fact, Varma also praised Mia and said she is the painting, while he is just the frame maker. @MiaMalkova I Thank you for the person you are and I admire and respect you for the way you project your thinking ..You are the painting and I am just a frame maker #GodSexTruth https://t.co/ykVvtOnUwP — Ram Gopal Varma (@RGVzoomin) 11 January 2018 Well, the poster looks highly intriguing and Mia looks beautiful as hell. While, we can't wait for the movie to release already, watch out for this space as the trailer is going to launch on January 16, 2018 at 9 AM.
  18. The movie, which has been produced by Anushka Sharma, also stars Kahaani-fame Parambrata Chatterjee. Anushka Sharma, who is back to work after spending quality time with husband Virat Kohli, shared the first teaser of her highly-anticipated supernatural thriller Pari. The 19-seconds long teaser begins with a closeup shot of the actress looking timid yet fearless. With every progressing second, her face starts to transform. Blood smears and flesh-deep cuts crawl out of her skin and she turns into your worst nightmare. The movie title comes on the screen, Pari with a tagline, ?Not a fairy tale.? Anushka shared the teaser on her Twitter account with the caption: ?Sweet dreams guys.?? The teaser also revealed the new release of the film, which was expected to hit the screens on February 9. The movie will now release on March 2. The movie, which has been produced by Anushka Sharma, also stars Kahaani-fame Parambrata Chatterjee. The movie has been directed by Prosit Roy. While speaking about the movie, Anushka had earlier shared: ?We have gone by instinct in choosing good cinema, and the audiences have liked both our films. Pari is a strong, engaging story and our team is brilliant. It's the kind of project that I love producing and delivering to audiences."
  19. When people want bigger arms, they generally focus on their biceps only. That's because biceps are the most shown off muscle on the planet! But this is exactly where you are wrong. To have huge guns, you need to concentrate more on your triceps than biceps. If you don't know this already, let me tell you that around 66% of your arm is made up of triceps and the rest is biceps. As the name itself suggests, there are three muscle heads in the tricep muscle group unlike two in biceps muscle group. Today, I am going to tell you exercises which will help you get bigger and thicker triceps. The Anatomy Of Triceps Since there are three heads of the tricep muscle group, it is important that we include an exercise for every head. The three heads in the triceps are the lateral head (that makes the horseshoe shape), the medial head and the long head. While extending the elbow and straightening the arm is done primarily by the lateral and medial head, the long head is responsible for adduction along with the lats (back muscles). Now, there are various exercises that can be done to isolate the triceps but I'll tell you the 5 most effective in this article. 1) Close Grip Bench Press © YouTube This exercise is performed on a normal bench press. The movement is identical to a bench press with the only difference being the grip with which the barbell is grabbed. While in a bench press, the grip is more than shoulder width apart and the grip of arm is very close. The distance between the hands will be the distance that equals a little more than both thumbs placed together on the bar. 2) Skull Crusher © YouTube This exercise is done on an isolated flat bench. Though you can use the normal barbell, ideally, the EZ Bar is recommended because of better impact on the lateral head of the triceps. The starting position of the exercise is when your arms are perpendicular to the floor. Slowly lower the barbell towards your head till it reaches just above your face and then push it back to where you started. You can perform heavy sets as well as drop sets in this exercise. 3) Pulley Pushdown © YouTube I am sure that this exercise must already be a part of your exercise regime, if not; you've missed the Universal Exercise of triceps. Drop sets, heavy sets, partial sets, eccentric sets you name it, every form of workout can be done on the pulley machine to work your triceps. The best part is that you don't even need a spotter for it. Since the pulley and knob is in front of you, you can adjust the weights by yourself accordingly. The variation for this exercise includes various other grips like the V-Bar, reverse grip, Rope Grip etc. 4) Overhead Extension © YouTube This exercise can be performed either with help of a dumbbell or using a rope in a high pulley. This exercise concentrates more on the long head, which I've seen is generally weak in a lot of people. Since folks only concentrate on pulley down, the long head of the triceps is hardly trained. A variation of this exercise includes using both hands and single hand to lift the rope or dumbbell. 5) Bench Dips © YouTube This is one of my favorite exercises as you don't even need gym equipment to perform this exercise. All you need is two benches which are almost of the same height. Place your hands on one bench and legs on the other. Now slowly lower yourself till your arms make a 90 degree angle. This is also one of the most effective exercises for triceps. You can also add weights to your lap to increase the difficulty level.

  23. Despite a great start to the game, the Indian cricket team suffered a narrow a 72-run loss in the first Test against South Africa in Cape Town. In a match that was full of exciting play, the Virat Kohli brigade eventually fell short in the end but not without shades of brilliance. If Bhuvneshwar Kumar's majestic spell in the first innings set the ball rolling, Hardik Pandya's resurgence with the bat surely gave the Indian fans something to cheer for. With many doubting Pandya's selection in the playing XI, the Baroda boy undoubtedly silenced them all with his willow. At a time when the likes of Kohli, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara and Shikhar Dhawan failed to miserably negate the fiery South African bowling attack, Pandya tackled fire with fire, not afraid to play his shots while leading India's counter-attack in the first innings. © AP Those who know Pandya would agree that the 24-year-old swears by living life king-size and that exuberance finds expression in his powerful hitting in the middle-order. However, it wasn't only his bat that was doing the talking. In fact, the right-hander was so confident about his batting that he was often seen exchanging funny comments with his partner Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the first innings. And, thankfully, it was all caught on the stump-mic. With swag of his own, Pandya began ridiculing the lines of Morne Morkel before saying, "You bowl it that wide, I will hit you there." When Bhuvi was on strike facing Keshav Maharaj, Pandya shouted from the non-striker's end: "Three slow balls in, now watch out for the quicker skidder". He said that in Hindi and surely Maharaj, who is of Gujarati descent, understood what he had said. © Reuters Before the last delivery of Maharaj's over, he asked Bhuvneshwar: "Morkel is bowling into the body, do you want me to take a single?" Later, after a swing-and-a-miss from his partner, he said: "Didn't touch it? Forget about it". But the best comment came in the 46th over of India's first innings. Morkel was into the attack as Pandya took the strike. The third delivery of the over, a length ball, placed well outside the off-stump was left alone by the Indian all-rounder. Given his previous shots, punishing the bad deliveries, Pandya felt that had missed out on that one. Pandya asks Bhuvi if he should have smashed Morkelð pic.twitter.com/gcxk1FWrxe — anshul kothari (@slimshady_ansh) January 6, 2018 Soon after leaving the ball, he looked at Bhuvi and asked him: "Ek dun kya (should I smash him, huh?)" before bursting into laughter. The comment was caught on the stump-mic and commentator Harsha Bhogle laughed his way while translating it for his commentating partners. While Pandya has long been compared to Kapil Dev for his all-round abilities, his tryst with the stump-mic reminded the fans of another chirpy character - MS Dhoni - who previously has been caught passing funny comments about his teammates.
  24. The phrase, 'New Year, New Me' literally brings in a tsunami of people wanting to get fit. Apart from the fact that 90% of them dropout only after a week, there's this absolute demand of 'toning' and 'belly fat reduction'. Now, its 2018 and it's hard to fathom that people still believe that they can target and reduce specific fat deposits on their body. Spot reduction is a myth that has prevailed in the industry for a long time now. The reason that this myth exists is because people are often looking to reduce fat from a specific body part. Look, let me bury this myth and any spot reduction expectations you have, once and for all. What is Spot Reduction? © YouTube Reducing fat from a particular body part, especially from the tummy, face and back, is called spot reduction. Hence, spot reduction is basically when you try to exercise a particular body part in hopes of burning fat in that area, specifically. People do it to get leaner and reduce fat. For example, someone concentrates only on working out their triceps because their tricep area has more fat. Just focusing on your troublesome areas and not working out your overall body is known as spot reduction and it's a complete waste of time. How Fat loss Works Let me break down how your body burns fat. Fat is stored in your body as fat cells. These fat cells are found in the form of triglycerides in the body. Triglycerides cannot be used by the body for energy right away. The triglyceride has to be broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol, which has the ability to enter the bloodstream. Now, this fatty acid and glycerol can occur anywhere in the body and not necessarily from any specific body part. Is Spot Reduction Possible? © YouTube No, it's not possible. Just because you are exercising a particular body part, it doesn't mean that the body will utilize fatty acids from that area. The same principle has also been supported by the studies conducted on spot reduction. A study conducted by the Department of Kinesiology & Health Education, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Edwardsville, Illinois, USA, established that when the subject participants targeted their abdominal muscle for spot reduction, no reduction was found in belly fat. There have been various other studies on spot reduction where subjects even trained their arms for a fixed period but they still lost fat from all over the body and not just the arms. How do you reduce belly fat? So, what is the best exercise for people who are looking to reduce their tummy fat? Well, you need to concentrate on the proven ways to reduce overall body fat percentage. When your body starts losing weight, you will start losing tummy weight as well. The following are the ways to do it. - Calorie Restricted Diet: No diet will work until you take a pen and paper and note down the macros that you are taking in your diet. Once you know what you are eating throughout the day, eliminate all the empty calorie foods and other high carb food sources to reduce the total number of calories to create a deficit. - Weight Training and HIIT: Though cardio may help you with the initial phase of water loss from the body, it is weight training that will actually help you in the long run. Perform a few sessions of HIIT to boost your fat loss.

  25. If you have been following MensXP Health then you must have read articles about the benefits of cable workouts. Of course, continuous tension is the key benefit of any cable workout. In this piece, I will break down a different element of cable assisted workouts and that is 'Angle Variations'. To explain it best, we will look at pectoral development using cable assisted exercises. We will pick a chest workout to explain this element and also how can you target different parts of the chest using a single cable pulley machine. A Bit About The Pectoral Muscle (Chest Muscle) © YouTube The chest muscle is broadly categorized into 2 parts, the pectoralis (pec) major and the pectoralis minor. The pec major is further divided into the upper pec and the lower pec. For overall chest development, it is important to train the chest muscle at different angles to achieve optimum development. Cable Pulley Machine And Pectorals Categorized under an isolation exercise, the pulley machine is a great tool to train your chest muscles. However, by changing the pulley height, we can precisely target the different parts of your chest. 1) Low Cable Pulley Crossover Fly for Upper Pec Major The low cable pulley fly targets your upper pec major, also known as the upper chest. © YouTube To perform this exercise, bring down the pulleys to the extreme bottom of the machine. Stand in the center of the machine and grip the D handles to bring them up until your hands are joined in the front- center of your chest. 2) High Cable Pulley Crossover for Lower Pec Major © YouTube This is the most common form of a cable crossover exercise that targets your lower pec major aka the lower chest. To perform this, bring up the pulley to the top end. Grip the D handles and while standing in the center, bring your hands forward until they come together towards the middle of your chest. 3) Center Cable Pulley Crossover Fly For Pec Minor © YouTube If you want to hit the pec minor aka the center part of the chest, bring down the pulley to the center (adjust according to your height). Grip the handles and try to feel the isolation in the middle of the chest while performing the cross overfly at this angle. How Many Sets and Reps? For any variation, you can perform 8-12 reps for at least 3-4 sets. Usually, lifters perform this exercise as a finisher but you can also perform it as the first set of your chest workout. The purpose, in that case, would be to pre-exhaust your pecs You can also perform this exercise as a ladder set, which means one set at a high angle, followed by middle and the bottom pulley angle. Note: Avoid bending your elbows too much while you bring your arms together in front of your chest (In a concentric phase).
