  1. The International Space Station, as we all know, is currently the only fully functional space station in the Earth's lower orbit. It's the result of a partnership between European countries represented by the European Space Agency the United States, Japan, Canada, and Russia. Well, looks like there's going to be another space station by the year 2030 and it's going to be launched by none other than India. The same has been confirmed by the ISRO chief K Sivan during a press conference where he also talked a bit more about the project. © Reuters He made it a point to inform that India will not be joining the International Space Station (ISS) and launch its own space station, which will be an extension of the Gaganyaan project. “We have to sustain the Gaganyaan programme. So, subsequently, as a long-term plan, we are planning to have the space station in India. We are going to join the international community in manned missions to the moon, asteroids. We have a clear plan for the space programme,” Sivan said. The proposed space station will likely weigh 20 tonnes and it's said to be used for conducting microgravity experiments. India is targetting 2030 as the date to launch the space station and the preliminary plan is for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for up to 15-20 days in space. We still don't have a lot of details, but we hope to learn more after the completion of Gaganyaan mission. © Reuters As for the Gaganyaan mission, the government is said to have cleared a budget of Rs. 10,000 crore. It looks like there will be two flights from Sriharikota before the maiden flight with crew takes of sometime in 2022. ISRO's complete focus right now is on India's second moon mission, Chandrayan -2. It will take off on July 15 and will attempt to land near the South Pole of the Moon, which has remained an uncharted territory so far. You can learn more about the Chandrayan-2 mission right here.
  2. Shahid Kapoor is all set to entice his fans with his performance in his upcoming film, 'Kabir Singh'. Being touted as an intense love story, the film revolves around Kabir Singh (Shahid Kapoor) who fall in love with Preeti (Kiara Advani), his junior in college. Well, things change when their love story doesn't pan out the way they wanted it to. There's painful heartbreak and guess what? Shahid turns into a lovelorn man, trapped in the world of drugs and alcohol. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the film is a remake of the popular Telugu movie 'Arjun Reddy'. For the film, Shahid really had to push himself, considering the body transformation the role required. At the age of 38, projecting a college boy with a chocolatey charm isn't that easy, but Shahid managed to pull off the character of young Kabir pretty well. You have to look a certain way to be convincing as a college boy on the big screen and Shahid left no stone unturned to ensure he looked apt for the role. For the character, he had to gain 8 kilos and then lose 14 kilos. View this post on Instagram As a star one is so conditioned to showcasing oneself at ones best. But as an actor one has to have the guts to show yourself at your worst. #kabirsingh in my blood. Hope you feel him too. A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Apr 11, 2019 at 12:45am PDT “I wanted to look boyish for the younger portions to play a medical student. I didn't want a perfect body; one that was manicured or chiselled because that's not how college-going boys look. Seventy-five per cent of what you eat depends on your diet. I don't drink alcohol and am a vegetarian. Generally, I live a healthy lifestyle. To lose weight, I needed to severely cut the calories I consumed, and train harder. Even though we were training, the look was achieved more via the diet; not so much in the gym. We had two months to lose weight. I didn't want to rush into anything since that is not healthy.” Shahid told Mid-Day. Well, we can say a lot of hard work has gone into the making of this film and fans are waiting with bated breath to see Shahid nailing the character on the big screen. 'Kabir Singh' releases on 21st June 2019. Stay tuned for more such updates.
  3. If there was an award for someone who, even at the age of 62, can nail any silhouette, trend or prints right, it has to be the ageless actor Anil Kapoor. This actor defies age with his suave style and gives us enough reasons to look 'Jhakaas'. He recently caught our attention and we couldn't help but notice the way he layers his outfit each time. Get set to embrace the season with an assortment of outerwear styles that are sure to look great in your summer wardrobe. Let these pictures do the talking! 1. Who would have thought that donning a navy blue blazer with breeches could look so damn good? Thanks to Anil Kapoor for making a good case so we revive the way we wear our kurtas. © Instagram, Anil Kapoor 2. Whether you wish to round off a street style look or crack the casual code, a shacket layered over a basic white tee and black pants will serve you best, courtesy Anil Kapoor. © Instagram, Abhilasha Devnani 3. Lately, waist coats are having a moment and we are absolutely stunned by the way Anil Kapoor has injected a perfect dose of monochrome to his debonair. It's nothing less than a dream, tbh. © Instagram, Abhilasha Devnani 4. Elevate the way you wear your bomber jackets. Check how Anil Kapoor wears the street style essential with a polo t-shirt, faded jeans and black trainers. © Instagram, Abhilasha Devnani 5. An oversized hoodie is your safe bet to wear in summers and Anil Kapoor has literally earned his style creds, layering this checkered version over a black blazer. So droolin'. © Instagram, Anil Kapoor 6. When your formal shoes become a tad bit boring to pair with your double-breasted blazer, get inspired by Anil Kapoor's statement-making Chelsea boots to head straight from boardroom to bar. © Instagram, Abhilasha Devnani
  4. Keeping up with the latest accessory trends can be quite a task, and we're with you. Luckily, this season, the fashion trends have changed for the better and paying attention to details can now prove incredibly rewarding. Get ready to ditch your beaded wristbands and woven belts for these accessories that are all set to maximise your style. 1. Silver Cufflinks © Pexels Dear men, stop bringing out your age-old pocket squares to go with your suits. It's time to take a detour from 'boring' by adding a pair of silver cufflinks to crank up your attire. Understated, and thus subtly charming, these cufflinks will go with almost all colours of your shirts. To show you how confident I am about this tip, feel free to put the blame on me if it doesn't work. 2. Baseball Cap © Twitter Considering how quickly sporty styles have invaded most wardrobes, why not give baseball caps a chance to preen your look? These round brimmed version in muted tones with subtle branding might be just the push you need to go from 'meh' to 'dayum'. The trick here is to dovetail the trend with all your off-duty ensembles and fully commit to it. 3. Waist Bag © Trademe.co.nz You may not think much of your girlfriend's precious little sling bag, but it might just turn out to be a vital part of your vacay. An option that's inexpensive, a waist bag (not a fanny pack) is a good enough approach for you to set a new high. Also, the fact that it easily stocks your stuff as you head out doesn't hurt. The best part? It's not too beyond your comfort zone, and you no longer need your GF for it. 4. A Reversible Belt © Esquire A sartorial deviation from everyday wear belts to an option that doesn't wear down your budget, reversible belts have come a long way. It stands by virtue of its nature to suit any outfit. No more fretting about the shirts or tees you have in your wardrobe. Be it teal, burgundy or salmon pink, this belt type does a good deed for all. 5. Vintage Eyeglasses © Haircutinspiration Splurging on eyeglasses is not a decision made lightly, especially when, thanks to the digital world, there's a style or two for every face type. We've had our eye on vintage eyeglasses that are, besides being unapologetically fashionable, a fail-proof way to enhance your routine attire.
  5. Amazon has now made a device that lets you use any speaker and add Alexa services without compromising on your setup. Instead of using Amazon's own speaker, you can now add Alexa to any speaker that you use in your home. This can be a home theatre, a bookshelf speaker setup or in my case Sonos. © Amazon Amazon's new Echo Link Amp basically replaces the need of an amplifier or a receiver that is basically used to power speakers. Amazon Link and Link Amp are the perfect devices if you want to convert your home system smart. Having said that, neither of the two comes with in-built microphones which are essential for a standalone smart speaker. You will need to use an existing Amazon Echo device or the Alexa application on your smartphone in order to take advantage of these devices. © Amazon What's cool is that you can use an Echo dot and power a set of speakers with Amazon's new offering. I hooked up my Sonos Play 5 to test the Echo Link Amp and it was fairly easy to set up. However, the Amazon Link and Link Amp require a physical internet connection via an ethernet cable. It would have been awesome if it had some sort of wireless support but for now you will need to have your router nearby in order for the Link and Link amp to work. Performance In order to test the two devices, the best testing ground is at a house party. I hosted one a few days ago for my birthday and used the two devices to see how it fared in the real world. I connected the devices with my Sonos setup and an Echo dot to see if there was any noticeable difference in sound quality. © Amazon While using the Echo Link and Link amp, it was easy to switch audio sources with a simple press of a button. We played typical house party music i.e. some Hip-Hop, chill out and electronica. To be honest, there wasn't any noticeable difference between the Echo Link and the Echo Link amp even though the larger brother is supposed to be more powerful. We connected the speakers directly into the amp and the sound quality remained the same. The highs were the same as it would be without the amp variant and the story remained the same for the lows and mids. The main difference between the Echo Link and Link Amp is quite obvious, the larger brother has an in-built amp while the smaller Echo Link needs to be connected to an external amplifier. The Echo Link is probably my preferable choice simply because it is easy to set up with any speaker you own and is small enough to be discrete. Overall, it improves the audio quality of generic speakers. © Amazon The Echo Link Amp, on the other hand, does the job but we found it a bit disappointing simply because it did not affect the sound quality much. Even though it has an in-built amp, the output remained the same with no major noticeable improvements. The cool thing is that you can use the Echo Link amp for various purposes thanks to the available connections at the back. There's a dedicated connection for a sub-woofer or you can always use a generic aux connection to relay sound. If you want a more reliable and warm sound, you can hook up bookshelf speakers with an RCA wire. You can add additional speakers to the amp as you would on a home theatre with pan control. You even have the option to hook up the Echo link amp with an optical cable, a feature that many devices seem to ignore these days. Overall, the Echo Link amp is quite versatile even though you will get the same audio output as your speakers without an amp connection. The Final Say The Echo Link and Echo Link Amp are probably meant for audiophiles who want the added benefit of Alexa. It's an easy way to add core Alexa functionalities to any speaker without compromising your existing setup. Though both products don't offer much difference in sound quality when hooked up, it still is a great way to incorporate smart features. Alexa as a platform can be used for various purposes and it's great to see Amazon marry the two technologies together. The Echo Link retails in India for Rs Rs. 19,999 while the Echo Link Amp retails in India for Rs 29,999.
  6. Any Marvel fan would agree that end-credit scenes are an integral part of Marvel Cinematic Universe. For over 10 years, we've all sat through really, really long credits, just to get a few seconds of something more. Yes, they have been very important ever since Nick Fury showed up at the end of 'Iron Man' to talk to Tony Stark about the Avengers initiative. Since then, end-credit scenes have been instrumental in connecting 21 movies with each other and building an entire cinematic universe, that even Bollywood is trying to copy now. While not a single true fan would mind sitting for 15 minutes extra, this time we might not have to since it's being reported that 'Avengers: Endgame' will not have any end-credit scene. But tbh, I'm still not getting up from my seat until and unless all the credits are over because I don't trust the internet and of course, Marvel. I was actually a little disappointed after hearing this news at first because well, there won't be an iconic scene like the Earth's mightiest superheroes eating shawarmas after a big fight, but if you think about it, it actually makes sense. We've been calling this movie the end of an era for the longest time and giving the audience a scene about what's next doesn't really fit in well with that. Obviously, as the name suggests, this is the end, the culmination of 21 movies and it is all about finality. This is probably the last time we'll see everyone together and with the end of phase 3 of MCU, an end-credit scene would not really add to the movie in any way. Moreover, 'Endgame' will not just conclude the 'Infinity saga' but will also tie up the loose ends of each and every MCU movie that came before. It's basically like one big story coming to an end and that's why end-credits were crucial as a way to connect it all so effortlessly, but 'Endgame' doesn't have any need for it. So, as much as I have enjoyed all the end-credit scenes, it is perfectly okay for the Russo Brothers to give it a pass this time, because we already know the movie will be incredible in itself and we won't really need to look forward to what's next for some time.
  7. 'Avengers: Endgame' has now sold 2.5 million advance tickets before the final chapter in the Marvel Studios' Super Hero franchise Avengers hits the theatres tomorrow. According to BookMyShow: “This marks the highest ever advance ticket sale for a Hollywood film on the platform. 'Avengers: Endgame' is also the fastest film to have surpassed the 2 million advance ticket sales mark on BookMyShow.” Seems like nothing is going to slow down the ticket sales of the highest anticipated movies of this year. Even though the movie was leaked in full yesterday, it is not deterring fans from watching the movie in a proper theatre. Indians already broke the record earlier this week by pre-booking tickets for 'Avengers: Endgame'. In fact, over 1 million tickets were sold in 24 hours. © Marvel Studios Speaking about the audience reception, Ashish Saksena, COO - Cinemas, BookMyShow, said, “With just a few hours left for 'Avengers: Endgame' to hit the screens, the frenzy around the film is unprecedented. The cinemas are doing everything possible to match fans' demand for the film, including round-the-clock screenings as also opening up advance bookings for the entire week ahead. This has enabled BookMyShow to offer several more options to Marvel-lovers and cater to their excitement. As the craze around the film continues to intensify, we expect a mighty opening on Friday and a record-breaking first week.” © Marvel Studios It would be interesting to see how many more tickets will be booked once the movie has been released and more shows get added. It seems like ticket sales for Endgame won't slow down anytime soon. In fact, you're one of the people who doesn't have a ticket and want to avoid spoilers, you can follow our how-to guide here. For the first time ever in India, 'Avengers: Endgame' will be screened 24X7 in select theatres across India.
  8. We've all been wondering when the next instalment of 'The Last Of Us' will launch ever since it was announced at E3 last year. According to a leak by a European retailer ProGamingShop, it looks like the game is set to launch later this year. The game will be an exclusive game to the PlayStation 4 and possible PlayStation 5, similar to the original game when it was first launched on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. © Sony The release date for the “The Last Of Us Part II” is rumoured to be September 27th, 2019 if this leak is to be believed. It's a Friday and is one the most common days for big AAA titles to release. As of now, Sony does not have any big blockbuster games scheduled for fall 2019 and this leak would make complete sense. However, a recent report suggested that developer Naughty Dog, had recently wrapped up motion capture work on the game and launch in September seems unlikely. The general assumption is that The Last of Us Part II will launch in 2020. Having said that, the motion capture work could be re-shots or the final phase of production as the game has been in development for a while. When The Last Of Us was released in June 2013, it came out closer to the launch date go the PS4 which resulted in good sale numbers on both platforms. It is possible that Sony will replicate the same formula as the new console is about to launch very soon We've already confirmed a few specifications of the new PlayStation 5 and it seems the launch of the console is very close. It would be possible that Sony would want to replicate the same success for this and next-gen consoles as well. Source: ProGamingShop
  9. Apple's AirPods have become a cultural phenomenon and has become an icon when it comes to audio gear. It may not be the best earphones on the planet but it's surely the most convenient. AirPods 2, with a wireless charging case, is set to launch in India soon and many of you would want to use them with your Android smartphone. In fact, there is a way to use some of the AirPods features that are available natively if you use the earbuds with an Apple device. AirPods 2 offers some new features and familiar tech which has not been easy to replicate. You can read our full review here if you want to know more. How To Pair AirPods With An Android Phone © MensXP Pairing AirPods with an Android smartphone is fairly simple as it works similar to other Bluetooth earphones. At the back of the case of the AirPods, you need to long press the small button to make it discoverable. Once you can see the AirPods in your phone's Bluetooth settings, select and pair with the AirPods. It's easy and does not have any issues while connecting. How Can I Use Airpods 2 Features © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP The AirPods have neat features such as double tapping the earbud to skip songs and play/pause music with a single tap. You will be happy to know that this feature works with Android smartphones as well and works just like it does on the iPhone. Check Battery Life & Setup Google Assistant The AirPods 2 natively gives you battery levels when connected with the iPhone when you start using them or via the batteries widget. You can even use Siri without any additional setup on the iPhone. Having said that, making these features work on an Android smartphone is a bit more complicated. You will need to download third-party apps to take advantage of these features on an Android smartphone. © Google Play You can download AirBattery via the Google Play Store as it lets you interact with AirPods and see battery levels of each earbud and the charging case. You can alternatively use AssistantTrigger which essentially lets you do the same thing but also lets you set up Google Assistant functionality. You can fire up Google Assistant by double tapping on the earbud thanks to AssistantTrigger.
  10. If you're a Marvel fan, the second you read this headline you probably thought, "hey. I'd do it for free"! But jokes apart, an American company called Cable TV is willing to pay $1000 to a die-hard Marvel nerd to basically binge watch 20 MCU movies. © Marvel It's not just hard cash that's going to come their way. The winner will also get lots of Marvel goodies like a Thanos mug encrusted with Infinity Stones, a Captain America popcorn popper amongst other super cool things. This is a promotional event for the upcoming movie 'Avengers: Endgame' and hence, they want someone with a high level of patience and will love to binge-watch this truckload of action more than anything else. The company is looking for a Marvel nerd who can over-enthusiastically live-tweet their entire experience and also have an outgoing personality. As a submission to participate in this contest, one needs to sum up in 200 words so as to why they are the ideal choice. Sadly, this is only valid for people living in America and over the age of 18, so well, there's a lot of FOMO attached here. Maybe you can help a friend living in the US to apply for it.
  11. Have you ever seen Eminem smile? Never, right? It's one of the rarest things in the world and I honestly could only find just one really old picture of him with an almost smile on his face. So, if you've ever wondered what he would actually look like with a full-blown, toothy smile, someone is here to make all your dreams come true. Mike Brown has a superpower - he can make every celebrity smile and the result is high-key terrifying. © Facebook/Mike Brown The teeth one is so much worse. © Facebook/Mike Brown Umm. © Facebook/Mike Brown It's Eminem cubed. © Facebook/Mike Brown The teeth, man, the teeth. © Facebook/Mike Brown So scary. © Facebook/Mike Brown It just looks unnatural. © Facebook/Mike Brown There's so many more.

  12. Opens Instagram Sees a picture of a guy with a six-pack abs The bio reads Fitness Influencer/Lifetime Natural Checks posts All ab shots Closes Instagram and feels bad about self. How often have you found yourself doing this? See, going on a diet to get abs is not a bad thing at all. Losing fat generally is healthy for you and putting in the work to get lean is rewarding. But there is a difference between lean and shredded. Let me break it down for you: . Lean and athletic - 8 to 14% body fat . Shredded - Below 8% body fat The problem is that there are these enhanced and drugged bodybuilders who keep posting pictures of themselves looking shredded with rock-hard abs all year round, making you feel bad about yourself, even when you are lean. You are in a constant battle against yourself to stay shredded all year round like them. If you are building a physique without using any drugs for assistance (aka anabolic steroids), here are five reasons why trying to be shredded year round is plain stupid: © Pinterest 1. Your Testosterone Levels Will Take A Hit Dieting to a very low body fat percentage impacts your testosterone levels. Your hormones dip. It will impact your recovery, mood, and sexual health negatively. The reason guys on anabolics do not face this problem is them taking the hormones externally. They inject testosterone in supra-physiological doses on a weekly basis. Natural testosterone levels do not mean shit to them. 2. Constant Hunger Low body-fat means your hunger and satiety hormones are at a whack. Your leptin or satiety hormone is at an all-time low and your ghrelin or hunger hormone is at an all-time high. You are in a constant bad mood and cranky all the time. People around you do not like this side of you as well. 3. Too Restricted You will have to micro-manage every single meal that goes into your body to stay shredded. You will have to count every macro, weigh every food item, completely cut out every delicious food from your diet to be shredded. After a point, this becomes super stressful. You cannot focus on other things in life. You will be food obsessed. 4. Cannot Make Gains To gain muscle, you need to be in a calorie surplus and gain weight slow and steady. You will gain body fat. To be shredded and maintain your abs, you will need to be in a constant caloric deficit or at best, at your maintenance calories. As you see, these are two sides of a coin. You cannot have both. It is one or the other. Again, enhanced guys get bigger taking steroids is the hormones injected externally. © Pinterest 5. Body Image Issues A lot of well-known bodybuilders and fitness models have come out and spoken about this. Once you see your body look a certain way and you always desire to look that way, the obsession takes an ugly turn. A lot of athletes have admitted to being in a state of depression due to this. Attempting to stay shredded all year round is not just harmful to your physical health but also your mental health.

  13. It has become very common for all gym bros to take some kind of muscle building 'pills' or 'injections' these days to build muscle. Along with that, horror stories of people dying due to taking bodybuilding drugs, suffering from serious health risks, addiction, and depression frequent the news. They do build impressive physiques by taking these pills and injecting hard to pronounce compounds in their asses. Does this mean you cannot build muscle without taking these drugs? The answer would be NO. The problem with most natural lifters is that they try to imitate drugged or enhanced bodybuilders. It is like going to play cricket with a hockey stick. It is not a different level, it is a different game. How many sixes would you score even if you were the best batsman with the hockey stick? Here is what you can start doing if you are serious about gaining muscle naturally: 1. Increase Your Frequency And Divorce The Bro-Split One muscle group, once a week?! Yes, forget about that. When a person takes steroids, their Muscle Protein Synthesis shoots up for almost a week. Meaning, if they train chest on Monday, they will be repairing and building that tissue until Sunday. On Monday, they repeat again. You, a natural lifter, on the other hand, will have this elevated Muscle Protein Synthesis for 24 to 48 hours max. If you train your chest just once in a week, you will have a window where you are not making any gains for your chest. That is where you lose out on gains. If you want to avoid this, stop having a one muscle per day workout plan. Train all your muscle groups 2 to 3 times per week. 2. Do More Of Compound Exercises It's really cool to see bodybuilders have that pump and then do 20 sets of arms in one session. The fun fact here is that they can recover from these crazy high volumes due to the usage of anabolic steroids. There is nothing wrong with doing isolation exercises like above. Do your bicep curls too. But, not at the cost of compound exercises! To grow muscle, you need to get stronger aka need to have progressive overload. When you start going to the gym, you may be able to curl dumbbells of 7.5 kilos. Over time or say a period of 10 years, this will maximum reach 25 kilos. You did become stronger but the number is not a crazy increase. Let's compare that with a bench press. You start at 20 kilos. Over 10 years, this number can even go up to 120 kilos. That is a 100-kilo increase. You can overload muscle more and get stronger more in your compound exercises. Add to that, these exercises work more than just one muscle group per given time. This helps you save time too. 3. Eat In A Calorie Surplus To gain muscle, you need to eat in a calorie surplus. You cannot lose weight and gain muscle at the same time unless you are a beginner. A lot of bros waste their time trying to recomp or build muscle and lose fat at the same time. It is like two steps forward, one step back. Instead, just focus on one thing at a given time and prioritizing it. So yeah, if you think that you cannot build muscle naturally, that is a wrong notion. It is just that you have been doing things sub-optimally.

  14. One of the most asked questions on any men's grooming forum is 'what is the best way to get rid of dandruff?', and rightfully so. Most men suffer from dandruff, and it's one of the most annoying problems to have. Plus, even though it's just dry skin on your scalp, it counts as an 'embarrassing issue', somehow. What most people don't know is that dandruff and an itchy scalp can be dealt with easily, using natural ingredients from your kitchen that won't damage your hair. While anti-dandruff shampoos help, the best remedy for dandruff for the long run involves using natural ingredients. Here are the best home remedies for dandruff, which you can get right inside your kitchen: 1. Lemon & Coconut Oil (c) YouTube While lemon gets rid of dandruff, coconut oil nourishes your scalp and hair gently. Warm some coconut oil, and mix it with an equal volume of lemon juice. Massage your scalp with it, and wash off with a mild shampoo after half an hour. 2. Curd (c) Stack Exchange It might sound weird and outright messy, but curd is amazing for dandruff treatment. Apply curd all over your scalp, and wait for about 45 minutes. Rinse with a gentle shampoo for smooth, dandruff free hair. 3. Fenugreek/Methi (c) Ayurveda Next Door 'Methi ke paranthe' are not the only amazing thing Fenugreek is capable of. Soak some Methi seeds overnight, and mash them to make a paste after draining excess water. Apply it, wait for about half an hour, and wash it off with a gentle shampoo. 4. Neem Leaves (c) Specialty Produce Neem is the best antibacterial ever. Make a thick paste by grinding wet neem leaves in a grinder, and apply the paste on your scalp. Wait for about half an hour, and rinse off. You can use a mild shampoo.
  15. Once, we saw a guy who clicked selfies with almost every Bollywood celebrity attending the IIFA Awards in New York in 2017, and we've also seen a guy who photoshopped himself literally sleeping right next to so many Hollywood celebrities. Now, it's time for a little bit of a combination of both and we have a guy who's in almost every Bollywood celebrity's picture, thanks to Photoshop, of course.

  16. Smartphone makers have been trying really hard to distinguish themselves from the rest and often leave aside practicality. Last year, we witnessed OPPO and Vivo's short stints with sliding camera modules, forceful addition of the notch, and even devices with a display on the back. A prime question that they often forget is, do we really need this? Meizu has decided to take this a notch further with the Meizu Zero. It is the world's first phone with no holes. That's right, the company has stripped everything down and created a near-perfect enclosed phone. To start with, it has no charging port and you'll have to completely rely on wireless charging. Secondly, there's no SIM tray and you'll have to use the built-in eSIM technology to get cellular services. © Meizu Lastly, it doesn't have a headphone jack. We've got used to this removal and while there are many good alternatives available to solve this issue, not having a charging port sounds monstrous. Yes, wireless is definitely the future, but forcefully pushing it forward now isn't rational. In Meizu's defence though, they've managed to equip the phone with 18W wireless charging, which is really fast. This would surpass Apple's 7.5W and Samsung's 9W wireless charging speeds by a huge margin. © Meizu The traditional speakers have also been removed and replaced by Meizu's "mSound 2.0 In-screen Sound Technology" that allows the display to behave as a speaker. The phone also skips the notch or a punch-hole camera. On the front is a 6-inch OLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner and the glass curves towards the edges. It runs on a Snapdragon 845 processor along with LPDDR4X RAM. For the cameras, there's a pair of Sony's IMX380 + IMX350 dual camera setup while the front has a 20-megapixel selfie camera. © Meizu Considering it's a hole-less phone, it gets IP68 water and dust resistance and there are no physical buttons. Meizu is using a haptic feedback system to offer virtual buttons on the side to turn the phone on and off and to adjust the volume. While I've been critical about the use of such a phone, these devices aren't meant to be hot sellers. In fact, the Meizu Zero comes close to a concept phone that depicts how gadgets will evolve over the coming years. The concept is way ahead of its time and just because you can do it, doesn't mean you should do it.
  17. Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan starrer 'Simmba' turned out to be a bigger hit than anyone could have anticipated. The typical Rohit Shetty drama-action movie had a good storyline, a stellar star cast and of course, great music with 'Aankh Maarey' being a chartbuster now. Now, of course, the two actors are great performers and dancers but if Sunny Leone chooses to dance on your number then well, there is no competition at all. Sunny Leone and her husband Daniel Weber did their own rendition of 'Aankh Maarey' and well, let's just say, they killed any competition they could have had from Ranveer's dance moves. View this post on Instagram Thanks everyone 18million!! Woohoo! Time to dance and celebrate with @dirrty99 Love all 18 million of you! ð A post shared by Sunny Leone (@sunnyleone) on Jan 20, 2019 at 12:18am PST Sunny posted the video to thank her 18 million followers on Instagram and her husband joined the madness. The gorgeous actress is known for being one of the best dancers in Bollywood, and all her dance numbers so far have been a super hit. On the work front, Sunny is keeping very busy as she is prepping for the remake of the Punjabi super hit 'Jatt & Juliet' which will star Maniesh Paul opposite her.

  19. Setting up LED light strips is not something new as gamers have been using this technique for their setups for a while. However, with home automation becoming more accessible and IFTTT is advancing at a rapid pace to make it more affordable. You can control lights from your smartphone and change colours with infinite possibilities. You can setup different moods, lighting effects and scenes straight from the palm of your hand. Currently, the only two reliable brands that sell smart LED light strips in India are Phillips and Yeelight. I chose the latter to set up my room because it costs exactly half as much as the Phillips Hue light strip. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Yeelight Aurora Smart LED Light strip costs Rs 3,200 in India while the Phillips equivalent costs Rs 6,000. Of course, I would end up using the cheaper option because it does the same exact job for cheaper. You can always use other light strips from other brands; however, we aren't sure about whether their ecosystems or even their apps are reliable. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla A smart LED strip can be used for various purposes, such as lighting up the back end of a TV/Monitor so that it reduces eye strain. We can even use these light strips for indoor decorations during parties or for festivals like Diwali. What's cool is that you can even sync the Yeelight Smart LED Light strip with some of their other lighting products to get that uniform look. The Yeelight lightstrip supports 16 million colors and goes up to 140 lumens, which results in better illumination at a really affordable price. How To Set It Up Setting up the Yeelight Smart LED light strip is quite simple and straight forward. You will need to follow these steps below to get started: 1. Download the Yeelight app on your Android/iOS device. 2. Launch the app to see your listed products i.e. the Yeelight Smart LED Light strip. 3. Follow instructions to pair your device and light strips using Wi-FI and Bluetooth 4. If you need to reset your Yeelight LED Light strip, follow this instructional video below: 5. You're now ready to use the light strip How To Customise Colours And Set Scenes Once you're all setup, you can change the colours of your light strip according to your liking. I chose the colour red as all my PC components were also using the same hue and I like uniformity in my workspace. All you need to do is go to the device page, tap on your product and then select your colour to your liking. You can even change the brightness level to your liking, this comes in handy when you're watching a movie or having a date night. © Akshay Bhalla If you don't want to manually change colours every single time, you can also setup scenes so that you don't have to manually tap on a colour each time. You can also add lighting effects/moods in scenes such as a sunrise effect or night mode. In my party scene, I've setup a yellow light that would flicker like a candle. You can also customise the number of times you want the light to flicker and the duration in the customisations tab. As we said before, lighting effects are limitless if you know what you're doing. Automation The great thing about the Yeelight Smart LED that is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Echo. It even works with Siri Shortcuts if you are an iPhone that works similarly to aforementioned voice assistants. Here's how you set it up with Google Assistant Open the Google Home app and tap on the Add icon. Select Set up device Works with Google and search for Yeelight. Tap on it to open the Xiaomi login page. This action will link your Xiaomi account and your Google Home account. Sign in using the same credentials that you used to sign-in to your Yeelights app. Assign the Yeelight Smart Light strip to a room Give a nickname if you want to use your own phrase Siri Shortcuts © Akshay Bhalla Siri Shortcuts work only after you setup a scene on the Yeelight app. After setting up you can add a Siri Shortcut straight from the Yeelight App and it will ask you record your phrase. Since I have two scenes setup, I've recorded my phrases as “Turn on Gaming Lights”or “Turn on Party Lights”. So there you have it, you can now have super cool looking room that is completely automated. You can always use cheaper LED light strips that come with a remote to change colours. However, since these aren't compatible with Digital voice assistants or have IFTTT support, you will be limited to using single colours and lack customisation options.
  20. SRK is not just the king of Bollywood but is also known for being a very doting and a super protective father to his kids, especially his beautiful daughter Suhana. View this post on Instagram Holidays as they say should really be given a speeding ticket...hate dropping my kids to the airport....when holidays end... A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on Jan 8, 2018 at 1:08am PST When you are a superstar dad to famous kids, you need a special layer of protection for them and SRK is no different. In a recent interview, while promoting his latest movie 'Zero', SRK spoke about his thoughts on what happens if men, in general, behave like reel-life characters to woo Suhana. He was quick to respond and had his 'scary dad' advice ready. He said that if anyone tries to be like his character from his movies and uses the dialogue 'Rahul, naam toh suna hoga', its blatant stalking. "If a boy looks at you across a room at a party and says, 'aur paas, aur paas', go kick him in the shins. But in the film, if I'm able to activate an element of innocence and make it attractive, the role gets reinvented by itself." Now that's a firm warning for anyone trying to mess with Daddy king's daughter. SRK's latest outing 'Zero' received a lukewarm response from the audience but the critics have appreciated his character, Bauaa Singh.
  21. In today's day and age, dating isn't that simple at all. There are many factors you need to keep a close check on and if they don't go in accordance then you've got to try way harder. Dating is all about making the girl know you're worth a catch because you're done with the bookish know-how on how to charm women and you rather just try it out the way you think you should. © Pintrest Apart from clichéd aspects, woman also look for other things in a man which eases their psyche and paves her way to be with someone who can understand her in this crazy rat race. So it's not just about good looks or a sense of humour or even the strength you carry in your arms. For her to see you're worth a catch today, it takes a lot more than these three pinnacles and once you have everything deliberated, it's a lot easier for you there. Here are three unthinkable things that will definitely make you a catch for her, any given day. (1) Be A Challenge You don't have to go all the way to impress her today. It's not 1950, where women were charmed by just your presence. It's a different time and an absolutely different kind of an effort you require to make her see you as a catch. First off, don't act extra smitten around her. If you've established contact with the woman you're interested in play, it slows from there. Let her see you as a challenge she needs to take up as well. © Pintrest Men who're usually experienced with how to get a women can't make it too easy for her and that's what attracts a woman. She should rather see you as a mysterious creature than someone who is out there trying his best to make things work. Work it slow with her and keep your actions limited to what you want from this. When she sees your very little attempt at wanting her, she'll truly come around. (2) Use Your Balls Well not literally because then that would be strange. What I mean is showcase confidence and charm when you can. Don't fall meek or start having performance malfunctions around her. If she sees you as a confident bloke who knows what he's doing and how he's doing it, she's definitely locked in because she's going to think she's lucky enough to meet a man who is sensitive yet confident and that's exactly what women are looking for in today's day and age. © Pintrest (3) Keep Your Conversations Balanced By balanced I mean don't be one of those who keep talking and move on with another conversation. Balancing a conversation is an art and if you get it right your game is strong. Don't ask too many questions while talking to her. You can start talking about what you need to know about her by maybe talking about it yourself. For instance, if you want to know where she went to college you can start by saying ''I went to college in Mumbai, where did you go"? This makes the conversation a lot more interactive and lighter. If you pose too many questions or pull the conversation towards yourself, she's going to lose interest and head the other way! © Pintrest These three things are fundamental in approaching women and getting to know them better without revealing too much of yourself to them. It helps build a base due to the curiousity you foster amongst the women you like to know and it makes approaching women rather friendly. So the next time you wish to maybe approach a woman, so she can see you as a damn fit catch, maybe try these three things out?
  22. When the news of Vicky Kaushal rumoured to be dating the pretty Harleen Sethi broke on social media, hearts were broken and fans found a new person to stalk on the internet. The two are known to be quite close and the relationship is apparently very serious. © Instagram Harleen was recently seen in ALT Balaji's latest show 'Broken But Beautiful' and won many hearts with her acting skills. However, despite being a talented actress and a lovely face, Harleen is a stellar dancer in her own accord and her social media feed is actually a major source of fitness inspiration in itself.

  23. Whether you are an amateur graphic designer or a profession meme maker, we all at some point need to remove the background from an image. If you didn't know what you were doing, you would Google steps for removing the background on an image for Photoshop. It's a painstaking process that takes time and can be frustrating too. However, all your frustrations are now going to come to an end thanks to this new website called Remove.bg © MensXP The website is completely free to use as it uses artificial intelligence to accurately detect the foreground and remove the background in the picture automatically. All you need to be is upload pictures of your choice and in literally 5 seconds the site will give you a new image with the background removed. The file is in PNG format so that you can use it in Photoshop or any other editing software. © MensXP When we came across the website, it seemed too good to be true. So we tested a few images (including one of my own) to find out how it actually works. The website was surprisingly very accurate and basically made our life easier when it comes to removing the background. You can see that the website accurately cut out images. Some images that had a lot going on came up with some blurred results, however, it was still impressive. There are still a few drawbacks though as the size of the final background removed image is limited to 500 × 500 pixels. The team at Remove.bg is looking to increase the limit and give a higher resolution output. Having said, the website is completely free to use and is perfect if you want to make a quick meme.
  24. Next time when you have an argument with your feline worshipping friends about whether cats are better or dogs, read them this article. Along with being cute and loving, dogs are also protecting humans like their ancestral counterparts. In a few parts of the world, humans are entirely dependent on their canine partners for protection. These guard dogs are also some of the biggest dogs in the world. Here's a list that tells you exactly how big: 1. American Akita © wikimedia © wikimedia Weight: 45-130 kg Height: 66 cm The Akita is an intelligent dog with extreme agility and is known for its courage. It is usually owned for domestic purposes, to protect households from burglars. 2. Kangal © wikipedia Weight: 50–83 kg Height: 77–86 cm The Kangal is a strong and heavy-boned dog. Its origin is traced back to Turkey. They are usually referred to as a sheepdog because they are usually trained to guard huge flocks of sheep. It is known to successfully protect sheep from wolves, bears, jackals and even lions and cheetahs. 3. Bull-mastiff © Pexels Weight: 50–59 kg Height: 64–69 cm This dog has a short muzzle and a solid build. They were originally bred by gamekeepers to guard estates in the 19th century. They quickly got the name Gamekeeper's Night Dog. Their genetic background is 60% Mastiff and 40% Bulldog. These dogs are considered a little hard to train but have a natural instinct for protection. Even without training, they are known to protect their owners from burglars and other attackers. 4. African Boerboel © wikipedia Weight: 68-90 kg Height: 60-69 cm The African Boerboel weighs as much as an average human. It has a powerful jaw and thick muscles which are because of its “molloser” dog family descendants. The Molloser family is the foundation of today's mastiff-type breeds. It is often considered to be the most agile of all mastiff breeds. It is extremely loyal to the family it grows with and should be trained during its early years. 5. Dogue de Bordeaux © pixabay Weight: 68 kg Height: 69 cm The Dogue de Bordeaux is also called French Mastiff. This brawny breed's role has seen major changes over the years. In historic times, they allegedly used to guard European castles. Then they moved to pull carts and transporting heavy objects and finally ended up guarding flocks. They are considered as one of the most ancient dog breeds on the face of planet Earth. 6. Fila Brasileiro © wikimedia Weight: 64–82 kg Height: 65–75 cm This is another Mastiff in the list. The Fila Brasileiro or Brazilian Mastiff is considered to be an ideal guard dog. It has remarkable agility, aggressiveness, and an unforgiving temperament. In fact, their unpopular aggression got them banned in many countries. Like most other Mastiffs, the Brasileiro's first instinct isn't to attack its quarry, instead, to hold them away from the animal/person being attacked. The word “Filar” in Portuguese translates to “hold, arrest or grab”. Many years ago, these dogs were used to guard slaves and bring fugitives back to their slave masters. 7. The Tibetan Mastiff Weight: 70 kg Height: 75-79 cm © wikimedia You must have seen images of this dog as it recently went viral for its gigantic size and impressive appeal. If you had a doubt, let us assure that these photos aren't photoshopped. These dogs can actually grow this huge in size. Centuries ago, this dog originated in Tibet and China. They were always used to guard livestock and families against wild animals. Even though it is a loyal dog, their independence and stubbornness might make them neglect your commands when it senses danger. This is why it is not considered a family dog. 8. Komondor © flickr © wikipedia Weight: 60 kg Height: 80 cm The Komondor is a shaggy dog which originated from Hungary. This breed is being preserved and protected as Hungary's national treasure. It is considered a family dog but not a great fit for apartments. This dog is so protective that it keeps staring at family members for hours. If you don't train your Komondor to judge situations properly, get ready to open your doors to multiple lawsuits. 9. The Great Pyrenees © vetstreet Weight: 59 kg Height: 81 cm With a weather resistant double coat and a mane around the neck and shoulder, the Pyrenees is an ideal protector in cold weather. They have an extremely intimidating bark. Earlier, they used to be nocturnal because of their protection duties and some even end up barking uncontrollably, at night, to this day. They are not great with accepting commands, especially if they weren't disciplined during their early years. However, they prove to be a good family dog if trained properly. 10. Caucasian Shepherd © wikimedia © wikimedia Weight: 100 kg Height: 75 cm Mountain Shepherds have grown apart in physical appearance from their land counterparts. Mountain shepherds have a much stronger built. They are believed to be originated frothe m Caucasus Mountain region. They are one of the most ancient, purebred dogs. The biggest hint of their ancient ancestry are their teeth. Not many breeds alive can match the length of their teeth. Today, they are used in prisons to chase escapees. While some frame them as the most aggressive dogs, experienced trainers consider them a rewarding pet and even a good family companion.
