  1. Shah Rukh Khan is called the 'Badshah' of Bollywood for numerous reasons. Besides being a great actor, the man is known to be a doting father, a responsible citizen and a well-aware, well-read human in general. Recently, a throwback video of King Khan from the '90s has gone viral and it is amazing to witness the relevance of it today. He was interviewed by Farida Jalal on his views around the political scenario of the country at the time, nationalism and his generic views on being a citizen of India. The video might have been in oblivion somewhere, but it's come back to prove what a brilliant mind he has. #ShahRukhKhan talking about freedom of speech, freedom of press, not falling for speculations and anti-national elements to Farida Jalal way back in the 90s is incredibly relevant even now. "We are the citizens of this country, we don't own it." Via- Justin Rao @IndoIslamicPage pic.twitter.com/r0kTTFxHB5 — Bollywoodirect (@Bollywoodirect) June 2, 2019 His thoughts on how there is no ownership for a country but only gratitude for being a citizen, how he values the freedom that we enjoy which is a result of the blood and sweat of the martyrs who fought for it, the clarity required for freedom of speech, and basically everything you saw in the snippet, is eerily very relevant in 2019. It is wonderful to know that he was way ahead of his time in terms of beliefs and obviously, his fans love him for it.
  2. The LGBTQ community made a huge leap in their journey towards social recognition and equality in India and got an influential mascot in sprinter and Olympian, Dutee Chand, when she decided to come out and disclose being in a same-*** relationship with a girl from her hometown of Chaka Gopalpur in Odisha. In an interview with The Indian Express, the national record holder in 100-m sprint said, "I have found someone who is my soulmate. I believe everyone should have the freedom to be with whoever they decide they want to be with. I have always supported the rights of those who want to be in a same-*** relationship. It is an individual person's choice.” This made Chand the first and only Indian athlete to reveal her homosexuality and gathered attention from all over the world including the famous American talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres: She's the 100m record holder and the first openly gay sportsperson in India. I guess she knows a thing or two about being first. I'm so proud of her. https://t.co/auoyWY8yvk — Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) May 21, 2019 We caught up with the fearless athlete and spoke about her decision to come out and become a beacon of hope for the rest of the members, especially of the sports fraternity, who are also involved in same-*** relationships but have not mustered enough courage to speak openly about it. 'Initially I was terrified of how people would react to my sexuality but now that it is out in the open, I find myself to be in a really happy place. The fact that big celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres have showed her support for my cause means a lot to me." © Reuters "Ever since I shared my struggle, all my friends and relatives, other than my eldest sister and parents, have been good to me. They said: “Dutee, this is your personal life and you have every right to live it however you want to. We will not interfere with it.” "Ours is a democratic State and people have the authority to live their life however they want to and with whoever they want to." "Times are also changing. Back in the day, rituals suggested that women were not allowed to marry a second time. They were supposed to spend the rest of their lives all alone, as widows had their husbands expired. Now, not only can women marry multiple times but they can do so without being judged, not by the people who matter, at least." "Whenever something new happens, it is always criticised at first." "As far as my career is concerned, I have shown my worth as an athlete time and again. I have passed all their tests and excelled in doing so. I have full faith in the Sports Authority of India and the Athletics Federation of India and know that my sexual preference will have no impact on my relationship with them." © Reuters "I liked her for a really long time and even she liked me but we did nothing about it until the Supreme Court passed Article 377. As soon as the judgement was passed, I went to the girl's parents and asked them if they were open to such a relationship. They said that she was their only daughter and they are willing to do whatever it is that keeps her happy." "It was only after her parents' blessings that I told the world about our relationship." "Just like the Supreme Court decrimilarised same-*** relationships last year, I urge the judicial system to allow same-*** marriage, it would be great for people like us." "I believe in the ritual of marriage and ever since I was a little girl, I have always dreamt of getting married to someone that I love dearly and spend the rest of my life with them. If in the future, the Supreme Court does make same-*** marriage legal, I would forever be thankful to them."
  3. Grooming for job interviews or the actual jobs can be really intimidating. Especially, if you're a soon-to-be graduate searching for something or are a fresher sitting for placements in your college. The pressure of looking formal and serious overpowers everything else. So here's a celebrity approved guide for formal hairstyles that you could get for an interview or even wear to work. 1. The Simmba-Side Part © Instagram Ranveer is seen in a classic cop look in Rohit Shetty's Simmba. He looks fierce and a man who means business. This is a great hairstyle for interviews. The hairstyle consists of a prominent side part put to rest with a lot of mousse. The sleek cut compliments the moustache. 2. The Fading Buzz Cut © Instagram The fading buzz cut is characterized by tapered sides with a short crop of hair on top. The best thing about this army inspired buzz cut is that it goes well with all kinds of face structures and especially works great with a well-groomed beard, which is perfect for interviews and your beard if you don't want to get rid of it. The contouring of the cut, if done right, can give you a strong, sharp and slick look. It's hassle-free and requires literally no styling or setting. 3. The Mad Men Look © Instagram Inspired from the 'Mad Men', this elegant, clean look is a great choice for working professionals. This style is suitable for straight, fine hair, and you can cop this look by directing your top front hair to the side while following the outline of your head without creating much volume. 4. The Vicky KaushaL Mid-Length Waves © Instagram If you want to sport a 'Vicky Kaushal' medium-length style, then it is great both swept back and worn forward. The best thing about this style is that surprisingly it does work for a professional setting as well. The mid length waves are super versatile and look fab as long as you emphasize the texture and movement of the hair. Use lightweight stylers like creams and sea salt sprays, and blow them dry to keep the hair volumized and touchable. 5. The Layered Undercut © Instagram A 20-something style that is perfect for your work setting. Featuring an undercut appeal, and a layer atop, and a moderate length to avoid a mess. This hairstyle shows a distinct affinity towards a pompadour, but also brings in texture.
  4. We sat down with Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund recently to talk about their latest movie, Triple Frontier. Here's how the discussion went.
  5. Mohammad Babar Azam stormed his way into the Pakistani cricket team while quickly making his mark on an international level within fours years of his ODI debut against Zimbabwe in 2015. Having an all-star performance in South Africa, Azam proved his worth as a world class batsman as he was the leading scorer in the three-game T20I series while also making the second most runs during the Test series. Already breaking the Indian skipper's record for becoming the fastest player to reach 1,000 runs in the T20I format (26 innings to Kohli's 27) while also owning the wonderful title of becoming the only batsman to score five consecutive ODI tons in a single country, the opener is considered to be one of the finest batsmen to play for the Shaheens. Often compared to the Indian cricket captain for the strikingly similar charisma and the on-field presence the two command, the 24-year-old was once again put on a pedestal as that of Kohli after he put on a show against the Proteas. This time however, the young Pathan came out in public to give his opinion about the comparisons to an all-time great like Kohli. Babar Azam on people comparing him with Kohli. Very well said. pic.twitter.com/9yQJARcepn — Tuaha Sohail (@TuahaSohail) February 10, 2019 “People compare me to Virat Kohli all the time. According to me he is a great player and I am nowhere near him,” said the talented batsman. “My career has just begun.” “He's achieved a lot. I still have to do that. If my performances are up to that level then you can compare (our performances) but right now there's no comparison.” Everything was well and good. People were happy with the manner in which the young cricketer handled the situation while showing his respect towards Virat Kohli. But then came a troll who, basically edited Azam's voice over a Virat Kohli interview which has led to the internet short circuiting. Virat Kohli opens up about his comparison with Babar Azam pic.twitter.com/H0rusATPIT — PSL Memes (@PSLMemesWalay) February 10, 2019 This is how the internet is reacting: C'mon stop trolling others that's what i said before. Meanwhile how can you compare one with 64 centuries and 9 centuries?? — Vinay Mirchandani (@MirchandaniVinu) February 10, 2019 What was that ðððððð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ — Syeda Ayesha (@sayesha_noor) February 11, 2019 pic.twitter.com/kzhsXRq8Wz — عتÛÙÙÙÙÙÙÙÙÙ (@TeeqWrites) February 10, 2019 @PSLMemesWalay Keha se laate hon idea's ðð — Umair ðµð° | Kings ð (@UmairPTI4) February 10, 2019
  6. An interview is an essential process and the first step towards getting a dream job. While prepping answers and getting the company's history that you're interviewing for is the most important aspect of the interview prep, your physical presentation also matters. The first impression to the interviewer is how you look. There is an unspoken rule book of things that you should never wear to an interview. But besides that, there are certain general common mistakes that people tend to make before going for interviews. For example: 1. Not Planning Your Interview Outfit You might spend all your time in interview prep and not give a single passing thought to the outfit that you're going to wear. That's a big problem. What if your pants don't fit you right anymore? What if the shirt that you usually wear has an ink stain on it? What if the tie doesn't go with the outfit and stands out but in a bad way? Too many whats and ifs. However, if you plan your outfit before hand, it saves you from last minute anxiety and otherwise easily preventable disasters. 2. Not Ironing Your Outfits Even if you're sorted with the exact details of the outfit in your head, it doesn't mean your job is over. Hey, you need to to take that outfit out and iron it to perfection. Make sure you get that middle crease with the pants. Also, hang your clothes and put them away in a corner so that all that hard work doesn't go waste. 3. Not Getting A Fresh Shave And A Haircut You need to get a formal beard that is sharply cut and a presentable hairstyle for your interview. You don't want the interviewer to think you're going to lounge around in the office once you get the job (even if that is exactly what you plan to do) © allstyles 4. Not Wearing The Right Kind Of Shoes You can't wear open toe-d shoes or sneakers to an interview. An office's environment might allow you to make these changes later to your outfit. However, for the interview it's best to keep it formal because you don't know the mindset of the interviewer. © farfetch 5. Not Polishing Your Shoes Even if you have the right kind of shoes, not polishing them is a huge eye-brow raiser. If you have everything else going right for you, don't forget to polish your shoes. 6. Not Using A Mouthwash It is very likely that an interview might take place after hours of waiting. You don't want to take the chance and have your mouth stink when you open it in front of the interviewer. Always keep emergency mints and a travel mouthwash bottle with you and use it whenever you feel the need to freshen up. Trust me, it makes all the difference. 7. Not Removing Your Jewellery We're talking lockets, bracelets, rings, studs. You don't want to heavily accessorize before the big day. Feel free to wear these trinkets once you get the job but during an interview, you don't want to let an interviewer's opinion of your metal trinkets affect your career prospects, right?
  7. Dressing for an interview can be an intimidating task. Your first impression for the interviewers in the interview process will be your clothes. This means you need to put some effort in dressing yourself right for the interview. We're not saying your charming personality and the unique skill set that you bring to the company don't matter; however, the clothes you wear can also contribute to the decision-making of the interviewer. There are so many unspoken rules that can seem puzzling for someone who's going for the interview for the first time. So, here are a few things that you should most definitely avoid wearing to an interview. 1.You should never wear ill-fitted suits Steer clear from shirts, pants, blazers and suits that clearly don't fit you well. You don't want to come across a couch potato who clearly couldn't bother less to get their suit stitched right. © Fashionbeans 2. You shouldn't be over the top We're talking bow ties, bedazzled ties, metallic ties, offbeat colours for suits like pastels or maybe blue. You never know who's going to be interviewing you, over the top outfits only make you look funny and stops people from taking you seriously. That is the last thing you want. © bedazzled, hextie, glittereverything 3. You should never wear jeans to an interview Sometimes, in a situation when you don't have pants, you might want to choose jeans (or worse black jeans that give the illusion of pants) for an interview because who cares, right? No. Everyone cares and everyone notices this. So, don't wear jeans. This is the biggest blunder you can possibly commit in dressing for an interview. © fashionformen 4. You should never wear sandals or sneakers We get how some companies can have a relatively chill atmosphere and that wearing casuals to work might be perfectly acceptable. However, that doesn't mean you wear sandals to your interview. Besides, wearing open toe shoes only makes it easier for the dirt to cling to your feet which, trust me, shows from a distance. This only looks extremely unhygienic and might put your interviewer off. © radsneakers 5. You should try to hide your body tattoos and piercings if possible While we're all for body positivity and individual expression, we're not sure your interviewers might have the same mindset. While some work places might be liberal, you can never be sure that your interviewer is one of them. So, if you really want a job, it's probably wiser to take off your ear studs or any other piercings that might distract the interviewer and hide those tats.
  8. Did you know that the most magical community in the world runs on Invision Community? For close to 12 years, Invision client @Michael R has been spreading joy through the Santa Claus Network (ClausNet.com), the world’s largest community for Santa and his followers. He started building the site in November 2006 and went live in the beginning of 2007, using Invision Community as his platform of choice since the beginning. Michael also founded the James D. Rielly Foundation in honor of his grandfather – a non-profit organization that provides charitable and emotional support to military and first responder families. As a tribute to the holidays, Mike was gracious enough to be interviewed by Joel on behalf of Invision Community on how he uses Invision Community and engages with his unique community. J: This is such a wonderful community of passion. How did you get started? Back in October 2005, I attended the world-famous Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School. It was a Christmas present I received from my wife. At that time, I had already been portraying Santa for 34 years but was a bit skeptical of what I would get out of attending a “Santa School.” He’s already nailed the Santa look. At the school I got to meet Santas from all over the World! It was a wonderful experience and I am still friends with many of the folks, but what I enjoyed most of all was the camaraderie I felt with my fellow brothers and sisters in red. This was the catalyst in creating ClausNet – to recreate the same feeling of fellowship I felt at the school. J: Your membership must be very unique. ClausNet is the world's largest online community dedicated to the faithful portrayal of Santa Claus. Our membership also includes Mrs. Claus, Elves, Reindeer Handlers, and all others who devote their time to bringing the magic of Christmas to children and adults throughout the world! In comparison to other sites, 2,900 isn’t a lot of members. But based on some estimates it’s about two thirds of all the Santas and Mrs. Clauses on the planet! We are very selective who of we approve for membership. In addition to Invision’s validation process, I personally email each person who registers for an account. I do this to help eliminate trolls and other Grinchy people, but mostly to keep out the prying eyes of children to preserve the Secret of Santa and keep the magic alive for children of all ages! J: What Invision apps do you use, and how do you use them? We have all the Invision Community apps and rely upon them for many purposes. We don’t sell products on the site but we do use Commerce for donations. Members can purchase Supporter Level Memberships at varying prices. We use Pages and Blogs for posting short stories, opinion pieces, and even business advice. We use Downloads for sharing files such as example contracts and business card templates. The Calendar app is a great resource in notifying and scheduling regional get-togethers, workshops, schools, and training sessions. Articles and short stories written in Pages. J: What are some of the most innovative features of Invision Community that your members have embraced? I believe Invision Community is the most robust platform for building online communities. Our members really like the new Clubs feature. We use Clubs for regional and local groups as well as specific topics such as prop making and costuming. From the Long Leaf Pines to the Northern Pacific, ClausNet uses regional clubs all over the world to foster closer relationship. J: There must be seasonality with your niche. How do you keep your members engaged throughout the year and what are some special events that you host? Throughout the year we run several activities designed to keep up engagement. Member of the Month - Each month, I select a different member of our community to featured. We interview the candidate and post the interview on the site. ClausNet Gazette Monthly Newsletter - We send out a monthly newsletter of content from the website. Surprisingly, it’s the first time many of the members see the content. It is a great way to keep members coming back to the site. Christmas Card and Ornament Exchange – These are two of the most anticipated events we hold. Members sign up and are randomly paired with another, so they can exchange cards or ornaments. It’s very exciting to receive Christmas ornaments from another part of the world! We also run several other programs such as an Annual Raffle, Countdown to Christmas, Picture Contests, and Latest News. J: As a longtime Invision client whose passion is the holidays, what are your holiday wishes to other Invision clients and clients-to-be? As many of you know, Christmas is my favorite holiday – a holiday that lives in my heart year-round! May this holiday season be one of health and happiness for you and your loved ones. Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Joyous Kwanzaa, Festive Festivas, Fröhliche Weihnachten, Nollaig Shona, Boas Festas, Buon Natale, Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas! J: Thank you Mike for graciously spending your time with me and other Invision clients to learn how you engage with members using Invision Community. Hopefully this interview has helped inspire and motivate other clients with some extra cheer during the holiday season!
  9. Robert Horry was in India recently and we spent some time with the 7-time NBA Champion talking about everything under the sun. But, amidst all the fun and games, we also asked him a few hard hitting questions about the state of affairs of basketball in India. © Getty Images Even though we kind of blindsided him with these questions, Robert had some astute advice on how Indians can become better at the sport. Here's a look at what he had to say: What is the best thing about basketball in India? The best thing is the NBA academy and the way they're trying to implement basketball to the youth at an early age. Once you implement basketball and start a grassroot programme it gets the youth more active in the sport and when the youth is more active in the sport, they start to love the sport. If you don't feed them the sport they don't know about the sport, they don't try the sport. This way you get them young, get them to fall in love, and see how competitive the game can be, how fun the game can be and more importantly how it can bring forth a brotherhood, a sisterhood because it's just not a sport for guys, but also a sport for young ladies also. © Getty Images What's the one thing that surprised you with reference to Basketball during your trip to India? I think the one thing is the love and the athletic ability from watching them practice here at the NBA Academy to see how good these guys were and see how young they were. And that's the whole thing. You catch these guys at a young age and are able to teach them the game so they can end up growing with the game in India and maybe one day someone that I just saw can maybe ascend to the NBA. In a cricket-crazy country like India – how can NBA change the focus to basketball or any other sport? I think the best thing to do is to present it to them. Present it to them, let them watch and the thing is you have to let them watch good basketball because. Just think about it. If a cricket match is not a good cricket match, you're not going to watch that. So present it, have some tape delay NBA games here in India so people can get a taste of it. Once you get a taste of it I think you will love it. You will want to go out and play it and the next thing you know it will probably be your favourite sport. It probably won't take over cricket but it will be up there hopefully. © Getty Images What do you think aspiring Indian players need to do to play in the NBA? I think the most important thing is to learn the game. Learn the game, watch tapes of old guys and go out and play the game. There are so many kids who want to watch the game but don't emulate the guys they need to emulate. You see a guy try to do some trickshots and you're like hey slow down. Learn how to shoot a regular shot before you do a trick shot. There are so many things that come into it. You have to be able to pass, dribble, shoot. Learn the fundamentals first and then expand on it.
  10. “Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life” - Steve Jobs I think it's safe to say that getting a dream job or getting into that dream university is probably something all of us have on our to-do list. But dreaming to get into an institution of your choice and actually getting in are two separate things. It'll require a lot of hard work, patience and a kickass interview round to fetch that. Now we can't really do anything to help you get to the interview stage. but once you get to that interview round, you are pretty much in a make or break situation. On that note, here are five tips you MUST follow in order to ace your next interview and help strike one thing off of your bucket list. 1) Pay Attention To Your Body Language © Flickr Your body language plays a vital role in determining the type of impression you are going to leave on your interviewer. So pay attention to your body language and make sure you don't do something (scratch an itch, play with your hair, yawn) that will end up leaving a negative impression on your interviewer. 2) Dress To Impress © Unsplash While not every workplace setting enforces a dress code, you need to make sure that you are dressed in a proper and adequate manner for your interview, irrespective of the dressing policy of that organisation. There are two reasons for doing this. Firstly, it shows your maturity and sense of responsibility. And secondly, it indicates your seriousness for the job. So make sure you invest in the best formal shirts, formal trousers, formal shoes and ties before you go for your interview. 3) Conduct Proper Research About The Company/University In Question © Unsplash This is perhaps the biggest rookie mistake that an alarmingly large number of people end up making before going for their interviews. It's your duty and responsibility to find out everything you can about the company or university you're planning to interview for. After all, if your interviewer asks you something about the company, and you have no idea how to answer that question, you're going to be in a lot of trouble. 4) Exude Confidence In Whatever You Do And Say © Unsplash Whatever you say, make sure you say it with confidence and conviction. No one likes to see someone be unsure and hesitant about their own answers. So be confident and cool in whatever you say and do. But remember, there is a fine line between being confident and being arrogant, and you really don't want to come across as being in the latter camp. 5) Keep Your Answers Short And To The Point No one likes to hear anyone rambling. While it might be tempting to give the most elaborate and elucidating answers, you need to be careful about not going overboard when your interviewer starts checking her/his watch or starts losing interest. The best way to avoid this is by ensuring that your answers are short but crisp, informative but to the point, and impressive but concise. 6) Being Early Is On Time And Being On Time Is Late © Unsplash Punctuality is often considered to be the most sought after (and essential) attribute that employers look for in prospective employees. And one of the best ways of showing how punctual you can be is during the interview stage itself. Remember, being early is akin to being on time, and being on time is akin to being late. So make sure you reach the place of your interview 10-15 minutes in advance and you'll be off to a great start. And needless to say, being late is absolutely unacceptable and a complete deal-breaker.

  12. When one is facing an interview even the best of best can lose their common sense and later regret things they said in front of the interviewer. Here is a compilation of seven professionals who made epic blunders before their prospective employers. So take a hint and do NOT follow their footsteps. 1. Engineer: "It was during the time of college placements and I was desperate to just have something in my hand. During an interview, I ended up claiming I have a skill that I didn't. I hadn't even studied the subject in question during my college life. The person interviewing me gave me a question to solve and I went red in the face because I could not solve it. I just could not. I obviously didn't qualify." © Thinkstock/Getty Images 2. Media Professional: "The interview was going really well and once the question-answer round was over, the HR asked me about my salary expectations, I have no idea why but I told her I was looking forward to the salary and also the benefits. I even chuckled a little after that. She had a blank face." © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3. Social Media Expert: "It wasn't even my fault! I got stuck in traffic and by the time I reached, I was already an hour late. The people interviewing me were quite vocal about it and it was probably the most grilling interview I've had. Maybe the first impression is the last impression." © Thinkstock/Getty Images 4. Graphic Designer: "I get nervous really quickly. But this personality trait really affected the first few interviews I gave. For most of the questions, I'd just tell them I don't know the answers. I would get through the written level but never the personal interview. I had to overcome this but it took almost the end of my college. I had already lost a lot of opportunities by then." © Thinkstock/Getty Images 5. Content Writer: "I was a student of English Literature and interviewing for a writing job. While discussing my expectations, I started talking about capitalism and how much workers suffer in this system. The interviewer tried to reason things out with me but the conversation became really heated from my end. I learned that I can't take my political opinions into a professional space and even if I do so, there's a way to put it forward instead of shouting." © Thinkstock/Getty Images 6. Lawyer: "This was probably the worst decision of my life but I decided I was going to go for a couple of drinks with friends a night before an interview with one of my dream companies. During the interview, I looked sick and felt sick. I could answer questions but not to the best of my ability. I regret it to this day." © Thinkstock/Getty Images 7. Media Professional: "I didn't read up on the company but I wanted to make small talk with everyone I could see, for a good impression. Ended up asking the CEO what he does in the company." © Thinkstock/Getty Images

  14. We got a chance to talk to Karen Gillan, who plays the baddest girl in the MCU, Nebula. She had some really interesting things to say about Avengers: Infinity War.
  15. When you are giving a job interview, literally everything that comes flying out of your mouth is being registered and processed by your possible employer and can decide if you have a future with that company or not. There are times when you can go through a 'rejection' phase and that can be a dampener. But if you reflect on the mistakes you made, there are high chances of you having a better shot in the next interview. Here are a few phrases that you must avoid at all costs from saying during your interviews. 1. 'No, I'm Fine' © Thinkstock When you are offered anything to drink, like coffee or a glass of water just don't repeat the phrase “No, I'm fine”. It looks unprofessional at times. Instead, you could say, “No, thank you. I'm all set for now.” This might seem a little more elongates but is more professional, respectful and polite. 2. 'I'm A Perfectionist' © Thinkstock When you boldly declare yourself as a perfectionist then it could make you come across as someone who is overconfident or blatantly lying. No one is actually perfect in life and everybody has flaws. Saying the truth and admitting your flaws will only present you as an honest candidate and one who knows his weaknesses. It builds trust. 3. I'm Comfortable With “X Task” When you say you are comfortable with a certain task, your employer might assume that you are too comfortable with your job and what they have to offer you is not challenging enough. They should get to know that you are looking for growth in your career through this job. 4. 'I Work Well With Limited Supervision' If you say so, then your potential employer may assume that you only work well and prefer when there is no supervision at all. Let them know you can work on your own, but make sure you don't sound like a lone wolf. 5. 'I'll Try Anything' This shows that you are ready to experiment but it may also show that you are highly unfocused and not clear about what you want to do. 6. 'I Can Work Well With Anyone' We all have different personalities and it is fair to admit what kind of people you are comfortable working with. Just be honest with your interviewer and tell them what kind of person you work best with. Your employer also knows that sometimes personalities clash and being honest will be a good start for both the parties unless you want to go on job hunt within few months again. 7. 'I Think I'd Fit Well With You Guys' The words “you guys” is exactly the problem here. It simply sounds unprofessional. They are here to hire professional and not buddies to pass time with. Keep a check on the words you use, as every word you utter is judged and decides your career. 8. 'I Separate My Work And My Life' © Thinkstock This gives your potential employer an impression that you are not ready to put in some extra hours in case your company needs you. That you are not here because your passion drives you but only due to some other reasons. It simply shows that you are not willing to work hard. Your work will constitute a huge part of your life and you should be willing to sacrifice a few extra hours for the job you want. 9. I Really Like Doing 'X Task' Don't start a conversation by saying what you like doing. There are many people who may like something but still be terribly bad at it professionally. Instead, tell them what you excel at and why you excel at it and how that can contribute to success, both for yourself and your potential employer. 10. 'What Can I Expect In Terms Of Compensation?' © Thinkstock An interview is a process where you and your employer intend to get to know each other better. If you mention about what you can expect in terms of compensation then you are simply giving the impression that you are only here for the money and nothing else. Keep this conversation for the HR round. 11. 'Will I Have To Work On The Weekends?' This shows that you are not ready to go the extra mile in case your company may need you to. Why ruin your chances of getting that job you seriously want by putting up such questions? Let them know you are here looking for a challenging job and you would be ready to take on any responsibility if there comes an opportunity for growth. 12. 'No, I Don't Have Any Questions' Not asking any questions simply implies that you have not done your homework. A single question will be enough for them to remember you and will show that you are really excited about the opportunity.
  16. Stephanie Clifford (also known as Stormy Daniels). Image Courtesy: REUTERS Video/Screenshot WASHINGTON: An adult-film actress who claims she had sexual relations with Donald Trump before he was president said on Sunday she had been threatened in 2011 while in a parking lot with her infant daughter to discourage her from discussing the relationship. Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told CBS News? 60 Minutes that she was on her way to a fitness class with her child when an unknown man approached her, according to a transcript of the interview released on Sunday. ?And a guy walked up on me and said to me, ?Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.? "And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ?That?s a beautiful little girl. It?d be a shame if something happened to her mom.? And then he was gone,? Daniels said. Daniels sued the president on March 6, stating Trump never signed an agreement for her to keep quiet about an ?intimate? relationship between them. White House aides did not immediately respond to requests for comment after the interview aired. Trump did not respond to reporters? shouted questions about whether he would watch the interview when he returned to the White House from Florida on Sunday evening. Daniels? appearance represented back-to-back trouble for Trump after an interview broadcast last week on CNN with former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who described a 10-month long affair with Trump starting in 2006. Trump would have been married to his wife, Melania, during both the alleged extramarital relationships. The first lady accompanied him this weekend to his Florida golf club. A White House spokeswoman said Melania stayed behind as is her custom during their son?s school holiday. Not attracted Daniels told 60 Minutes that she and Trump had sexual relations only once, but that she had seen him on other occasions and he had kept in touch with her. She said she was not attracted to Trump, who was 60, to Daniels? 27, in 2006. The White House has denied he had an affair with Daniels, although Trump lawyer Michael Cohen said he paid her $130,000 of his own money during the 2016 presidential election campaign. The payment could pose a legal problem. Watchdog groups have filed complaints with the Department of Justice (DoJ) and Federal Election Commission (FEC), saying that it may have violated campaign finance law by exceeding the limit on the size of a contribution. Cohen, who has denied that there was an affair, has not explained why he made the payment or said whether Trump was aware of it. Cohen did not respond to requests for comment after the interview aired. Daniels and her attorney would not discuss in the interview whether they had text messages or other materials that might verify her story. She was asked why she repeatedly signed statements denying the relationship with Trump and acknowledged that there could be questions about her credibility. ?I felt intimidated and ... honestly bullied. And I didn?t know what to do. And so I signed it,? Daniels said. Asked why viewers could be confident now that she was telling the truth, she said, ?Cause I have no reason to lie. I?m opening myself up for, you know, possible danger, and definitely a whole lot of s***,? she said.
  17. We went to interview Rajkummar Rao and it was a complete disaster. Probably the worst celebrity interview ever. Here's how it went.
  18. Job interviews mean rules. Rules to make you look your best, be at your prime behaviour and appear well-groomed (through every interrogatory question). After all, job interviews decide your salary-fate, in turn affecting your (big/small) bank balance. You can't fail. But as we said, rules. Grooming rules hold imperative to whether you make the cut. Because really, your talent/experience won't save your arse if your beard's representing an out-of-bed situation, among other corporate grooming errors. We're listing a few of them here, that you can get around with must-have grooming products: © Yash Raj Films 1. TRYING OUT A NEW 'DO Unfortunately, you can't ace an interview with hipster mops. They may be trendy, but the interviewer doesn't care. Give him what he wants: side-parted, well-combed strands. Yet, if a fade/undercut is already placed on your scalp, remember to not go too contrasting — you don't want to end up looking too spiffy, in all the wrong ways. However, the style to sport does depend upon the corporate environment you're into. Products To Use: 1. Hair Wax (to not put your hair in place) 2. A Bristle Paddle Brush (to comb like a pro) 3. A Tail Comb (to put the pesky strands in place) 2. A LAST-MINUTE SHAVE Imagine your face post a shave? You're probably looking like you just shaved, with that layer of freshly-cut facial hair, that's barely there, but you can see them. Looks a little weird, doesn't it? Avoid this before a job interview, you don't want to appear like a try-hard. Or an emperor of last-minute grooming. Products To Use: 1. A Multi-Blade Razor (for the best shave ever) 2. After-Shave Lotion (to lock moisture back into the skin) 3. Facial Trimmer (for a last-minute trim, not shave) © Amazon India 3. SHOWERS WITH A MIST Shower gels and perfumes are two different entities and do not solve the same damn purpose. You can't take a shower with a scented bottle, and likewise, can't replace a perfume with a shower gel. To be perfectly-groomed for a job interview, you need both products in the right quantity. Before heading for an interview, take a shower and spray your scent once/twice over the wrist. Just don't choke your interviewer with it. Products To Use: 1. A Killer Perfume (to smell like a beast) 2. A Shower Gel (for a splendid shower) 4. SKIPPING THE BREATH ROUTINE For most men, breakfast comes post a shower; right before they're headed out. But while there's nothing wrong with that, depending on the ingredients, your meal could cause bad breath. Take a job interview as a Valentine's date, and use a mouthwash/brush your teeth post your eating routine. You don't want to have your interviewer guessing what you ate. © Amazon India Products To Use: 1. A Mouthwash (to kill bad breath in a jiffy) 2. Or, A Toothbrush (you know why) 5. HANGINGS ON THE EARS, NOSE, BROWS Interviewers notice, even the ones sitting beside them stare at you while interrogating. That's their job, man. Even the smallest mistakes visible on your face/body will attract their hawk eyes. So, basically, even the smallest of strands that are jutting out, won't go down well with them. Hence, focus on the brows, ear and nose regions and snip anything that's annoying. Products To Use: 1. A Personal Groomer (to trim all that excess away) 2. A Grooming Scissor (for convenience and easy access)
  19. LEFT: Special Counsel Robert Mueller departs after briefing members of the US Senate on his investigation into potential collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, June 21, 2017. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/Files; RIGHT: US President Donald Trump ponders the answer to a question from a reporter aboard Air Force One, November 11, 2017. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/Files WASHINGTON: Several of US President Donald Trump?s lawyers have advised him not to sit down for an interview with a special counsel investigating possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election, the New York Times reported on Monday. Citing four people briefed on the matter, the newspaper said the lawyers were concerned that given Trump?s penchant for making false statements and contradicting himself, he could be charged with lying to investigators. Trump has said he would be willing to be interviewed under oath by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. ?I?m looking forward to it, actually,? Trump told reporters last month. A person familiar with the matter told Reuters that no decision had yet been made on whether Trump would agree to an interview. Trump denies collusion between his campaign and Moscow, and has dismissed the Russia probes as a witch hunt, If the president refuses to sit for an interview, Mueller could subpoena the president to testify before a grand jury. A subpoena could trigger a court fight that might ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court. John Dowd and Jay Sekulow ? who led a team of lawyers advising Trump ? want the president to refuse an interview request, the Times said. The lawyers and some Trump aides believe Mueller might be unwilling to subpoena the president and set off a showdown with the White House that the special counsel could lose in court, the Times reported. Trump?s longtime personal attorney Marc Kasowitz has also cautioned against a free-wheeling interview with Mueller, according to the Times. Ty Cobb ? a lawyer who was hired in July to handle the White House?s response to the Russia probe ? has argued for cooperating with Mueller, the newspaper reported. In response to requests for comment from Reuters, Dowd and Cobb sent a statement that said the discussions between the president?s personal lawyers and the special counsel?s office ?regarding how and under what terms information will be exchanged are understandably private.?
  20. If you are looking to get hired in a super successful company then you must be prepared to face the people sitting on the other side of the table. They want to hire the best and prefer people who are smarter than they are. It is definitely a tough nut to crack, but with enough preparation and an alert mindset, you can surely land your dream job. As expected, billionaire Elon Musk also reaches out on different media platforms looking for raw talent. © Twitter/elonmusk These questions may seem weird when you first hear them but have very subtle objectives hidden in them. Let's warm up and see if you can answer these questions asked in an interview at Facebook. Question: “A Russian gangster kidnaps you. He puts two bullets in consecutive order in an empty six-round revolver, spins it, points it at your head and shoots. *click* You're still alive. He then asks you, “Do you want me to spin it again and fire or pull the trigger again right away?” For each option, what is the probability that you'll be shot?” Do you think you have the answer and what it takes to work with the likes of Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and Peter Thiel? If you think you do have the skills then get ready for an interview, right now. 1. How many times have you taken LSD? © Reuters Well, this is quite a personal question but what's the deal here? Can you see any objective that could help justify this question? This is what Macintosh co-creator Andy Hertzfeld and Steve Jobs would ask applicants who seemed too straight-laced and boring for their tastes. David Gilboa co-CEO of Warby Parker (a lifestyle brand) used to this question during job interviews: "What's the last costume you wore?" Now, the thing is, how would these questions help filter out a candidate in an interview? Here is one way of looking at it. Gilboa does not care about the costume nor is he trying to judge what someone likes. Instead, he is looking to see the reasoning and enthusiasm behind the candidates answer. The kind of enthusiasm an applicant displays can translate to the job role. Steve Jobs' aim was to loosen up the job applicant a little, so he or she might be able to give better answers for the rest of the interview. 2. What do you want to do when you leave this company? © Reuters Reid Hoffman, co-founder of Linkedin has been often heard asking this question in a job interview and it allegedly is his favourite question. For an applicant, this could prove to be a little hesitating and tricky. I mean, who thinks about leaving a company even before he or she has joined? Pretty weird, right? The objective of this question is to find out if the applicant has greater goals in mind. A person with ambition is likelier to work harder to earn a better job, no? This question clearly resembles a Japanese proverb which goes something like this, “One who can see three days ahead, will be rich for three thousand years.” When a candidate answers this question, it also shows that the person cares about the employer as a person and the company. 3. What's something that's true that almost nobody agrees with you on? © Reuters Do you an answer in mind? Peter Thiel, co-founder of Linkedin and Paypal would ask this question to test the applicant's courage and originality. With this question, Peter wants to determine if a candidate can push through that social awkwardness and explain something that the interviewer probably doesn't agree with. Isn't it necessary to have people on your team who will still have the courage to speak their mind even if their manager does not agree with a candidates personal belief? 4. You are standing on the surface of the Earth. You walk one mile south, one mile west and one mile north. You end up exactly where you started. Where are you? © Reuters This one is a bit tricky. Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and Tesla Inc. tests the candidate on two levels with just one question. The first level is that you may answer the question incorrectly or are not even able to comprehend it at all. If you are wrong you are simply out but if you said the North pole and can justify it, then you may have a chance. As we know the Earth is a sphere if you walk one mile south, then one mile west, and then another mile north, you will end up to the North Pole again. You could also walk a million miles west or zero, but you'll still end up in the same place you started. There is one more possible answer to this question. You may find yourself approximately at 1.32 (1 + [1 / pi]) miles north of the South Pole. If you walk south one mile, you will approach the South Pole. Then, when you walk one mile west, you will complete a full loop before walking north and returning to the place you started. If it still seems complicated, here is an explainer video. 5. How would you make money from an ice-cream stand in Central Park? © Reuters Yasmin Green, head of research and development at Alphabet tech incubator Jigsaw (previously known as Google Ideas) likes to ask this question. You need to be a quick-thinker and answer it in an interesting way. Your answer should be realistic enough to consider. These questions aren't the regular questions you'll be asked at various interviews and you have to be ready for anything. Also, did you get the answer to the question asked in the beginning of the article?
  21. From the moment Donald Trump decided to run for the U.S. Presidential elections last year, he found himself embroiled in one controversy after another. And unfortunately, most of it was from his own doing. From tweeting explosive statements to his notorious policies, the current POTUS is no stranger to being in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. And of course, 2018 is not proving to be an exception either. Only recently, Trump was accused of cheating on his wife Melania Trump with an adult star- Stormy Daniels. © Facebook Stormy (real name Stephanie Clifford), in a 2011 interview with In Touch magazine revealed all the details about their night together. The interview was shelved at the time. She says that she met Trump first at the American Century celebrity golf tournament in July 2006. “[Trump] was introduced to everybody. He kept looking at me and then we ended up riding to another hole on the same golf cart together.” Stormy said. © Twitter She further added that he later came to the her adult-film company, Wicked Pictures, sponsored and asked for her number, which she gave him, before they posed for a photo together. © Twitter “Then he asked me if I wanted to have dinner that night. And I was like, 'Yeah, of course!'” she told in the interview. Once she reached his hotel room she claims Trump was sprawled on the couch watching TV, wearing pyjama pants. This was followed by a dinner in the room itself. Stormy then reveals that she excused herself to go to the washroom and when she came out Trump was sitting on the bed and he was like, “'Come here.' And I was like, 'Ugh, here we go.' And we started kissing.” After having ***, Stormy said, “We hung out for a little while and he just kept saying, 'I'm gonna call you, I'm gonna call you. I have to see you again. You're amazing. We have to get you on The Apprentice.'” Although this happened way before he became the President, what has shocked people is that fact that the fling took place less than four months after Donald's wife, Melania, gave birth to their son, Barron. © TWitter For what it's worth, Stormy's story was supported by her good friend Randy Spears and her ex-husband Mike Moz. Stormy also took and passed a polygraph test at the time of the interview. When these allegations came to the surface, Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen denied it outright. “President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence, as has Ms. Daniels,” he said. © Twitter As per the Wall Street Journal, the fact that Ms Daniels also denies these claims now, could be because Trump's lawyer arranged a $130,000 payment to Stormy before 2016 elections as a part of a non-disclosure agreement. Apparently, there's more to this story as In Touch is planning to run the entire, unedited, 5,500-word transcript later this week.
  22. Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon arrives for an interview ? by the House Intelligence Committee investigating the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US election ? on Capitol Hill, Washington, US, January 16, 2018. REUTERS/Joshua Roberts/Files WASHINGTON: Former White House strategist Steve Bannon has reached an agreement with US Special Counsel Robert Mueller to be interviewed by Mueller?s investigators rather than appearing before a grand jury, a source familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. Bannon ? who was a close adviser during President Donald Trump?s 2016 election campaign and in his first months in office ? had been subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in Mueller?s probe of links between Russia and Trump?s campaign. But the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Mueller offered Bannon the option of being interviewed instead and Bannon accepted. It was unclear when the interview would take place. An interview with prosecutors would allow Bannon to have an attorney present during his appearance, as lawyers are not permitted in grand jury rooms. A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment on the agreement, first reported by CNN. A lawyer who represented Bannon in an appearance before the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee on Tuesday could not be immediately reached. Bannon was fired from his White House job in August as the president sought to bring more order to his staff operations. Earlier this month, Trump attacked Bannon for comments he made to Michael Wolff, the author of a book highly critical of the president and his family. They included scathing remarks about Donald Trump Jr. ? the president?s eldest son ? for a meeting during the campaign with a Russian lawyer who was said to have damaging information on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Mueller is investigating any potential collusion by Trump?s campaign with Moscow in alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Russia denies such interference and Trump has denied any collusion. According to a person familiar with the arrangement, William Burck ? the attorney who represented Bannon for Tuesday?s House appearance ? is not representing him in connection with Mueller?s investigation. The person said they did not believe Bannon had hired counsel for that yet. A House committee aide declined to comment on media reports that Bannon could return to testify again as soon as Thursday. Two other Trump associates, White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rick Dearborn and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, appeared before the House panel behind closed doors on Wednesday, congressional sources said. Representative Adam Schiff ? the panel?s ranking Democrat ? told reporters that Lewandowski refused to disclose information to the committee about events after he left Trump?s campaign. He also declined to say whether he had spoken to Trump about his testimony, Schiff said. Schiff said Lewandowski was unprepared and would return to the panel another time. An attorney for Lewandowski did not immediately return an email seeking comment. The House Intelligence Committee is conducting one of three congressional investigations of the Russia issue, separate from Mueller?s probe.

Will Ferrell bombards Roger Federer with a series of weird questions Hollywood icon Will Ferrell did a bizarre interview of Roger Federer at the end of the Swiss star?s win in the Australian Open first round. After the tennis maestro outclassed Aljaz Bedene by 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, Ferrell walked onto the court and what followed were the weirdest ever questions thrown at Federer. Ferrell: ?Quick question Roger, you?re 36-years-old, you seem ageless, are you a witch or a vampire? Federer: Ahh I don?t like those. Ferrell: There?s a rumour in the men?s locker room that you love coming to play in Melbourne and your secret to fitness is you only eat wombat meat. Is that true? Federer: That is untrue. I have not (eaten it). Should I? Watch the rest of it here:

  25. Over the last few months, women across the world have come out to support each other in the fight against the sexual misconduct that they have faced by members of the Hollywood fraternity. What started as another 'false accusation' has now turned into a full-fledged movement, with even celebrities coming out to reveal the horrific details of what they have faced in the industry. And adding to this unfortunate list of assaulters is noted comedian Aziz Ansari. A post shared by @azizansari on Aug 21, 2014 at 10:05am PDT News of Aziz's misbehavior with a woman broke out only recently, sending the whole world into frenzy. For the fans of the man who has talked about and supported feminism time and again, this was a major disappointment. The woman, who hasn't revealed her identity yet, revealed details of what exactly happened between her and Aziz in an exclusive interview with the website 'Babe'. The woman is a 23-year-old New York photographer, who says she met him for the first time at the 2017 Emmy Awards after-party and exchanged numbers. © Twitter After a week of exchanging flirtatious messages over the phone, they eventually went out on a date. On September 25, she said she went to Ansari's TriBeCa apartment which was followed up with a dinner at Grand Banks, an oyster bar on a historic wooden schooner on the Hudson River. However, she couldn't help but notice throughout the dinner that Ansari seemed in a rush to get her elsewhere. When the pair returned to his apartment, she said they kissed, but when Ansari told her that he was going to grab a condom within minutes of their first kiss, she said “Whoa, let's relax for a sec, let's chill.'” She claims he then went on to perform oral *** on her and then asked her to reciprocate, which she did as she felt pressured. She also reveals that he kept sticking his fingers down her throat and allegedly kept moving her hand towards his *****. “The move he kept doing was taking his two fingers in a V-shape and putting them in my mouth, in my throat to wet his fingers, because the moment he'd stick his fingers in my throat he'd go straight for my vagina and try to finger me.” She says that she repeatedly tried to voice her discomfort but he didn't exactly take notice. “Most of my discomfort was expressed in me pulling away and mumbling. I know that my hand stopped moving at some points,” she said. “I stopped moving my lips and turned cold.” There was a moment when she thought that he understood her being uncomfortable and things calmed down a bit. But not for long. While they decided to “chill” on the couch for a while, he again motioned for her to go down on him. He then led her from the couch to a different part of his apartment bringing her to a large mirror. He then bent her over and asked her, “Where do you want me to f*** you? Do you want me to f*** you right here?” After that she decided to leave and was again met with aggressive kisses, after which Ansari finally stopped. The next day, before the woman could figure out what to say to Ansari about the date, he allegedly sent her a text message to which she replied with a long message revealing all that she felt. This is the text Grace* sent Aziz Ansari after their date which left her feeling “violated”. She tells Ansari how uncomfortable he made her feel, saying “you ignored clear non-verbal cues” and “kept going with advances.” Read the full story on https://t.co/FyMMG6uO1j. pic.twitter.com/lPOvW6tFTr — babe (@babedotnet) January 14, 2018 She says that it took her a long time to come to terms with whatever happened, however, when she saw him winning the Golden Globes award and supporting the 'Time's Up' movement, she was enraged. © Twitter Aziz has now responded to these allegations with this statement: “In September of last year, I met a woman at a party. We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual. The next day, I got a text from her saying that although 'it may have seemed okay,' upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable. It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said. I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”
