  1. As the number of critical COVID-19 cases increases by the day, various hospitals and medical facilities are rapidly falling short of ventilators. Ventilators, for those of you who don't know, are equipment used to help patients breathe. Luckily, a lot of companies have stepped forward to help build ventilators. Tesla is one of the companies that has decided to repurpose its facility and resources to build ventilators for COVID-19 patients. Today, the company released a short video showing how its engineers have managed to build a ventilator prototype. It's a short 3-minute video in which the engineers are giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the prototype. It's worth pointing out that Tesla is using parts of its vehicles to build these ventilators. Obviously, not all of them, but a huge chunk of the prototype consists of parts used in Model 3. In this case, the engineers are using the Model 3 infotainment system to control an airflow manifold. Similarly, the car's suspension air tank is being used as an oxygen chamber, and Model 3's touch screen is being used as a controller. clearly, there's a lot going on here and honestly, it's quite fascinating. © YouTube/ Tesla We hope many more companies will step forward to help fight the coronavirus. It's been a couple of months since the outbreak and a lot of countries, including India, are still under lockdown. We hope to get out of this situation stronger. View the full article
  2. On US President Donald Trumpâs visit to India, around Rs. 80-85 crore is expected to be spent and almost half the budget is going solely towards security arrangements. Despite the heavy security arrangements, five langurs have also been deployed on the route of Trumpâs procession to keep him away from the monkey ruckus in Agra. The government has also undergone many vigorous steps for the country's beautification to welcome Trump and its attempt to build up a wall in Ahmedabad, to keep aside a stretch of people, has only left people on social media "heart broken". The âgreat wallâ has been built alongside the road connecting the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport to Indira Bridge in Ahmedabad where the "biggest road show" is set to take place today. The main objective behind the wall is to hide more than 500 kutcha houses at the Dev Saran or Saraniyavaas slum area in the city. âNamaste Trumpâ event, which has kick-started on Monday, will be similar to the landmark âHowdy, Modi!â event hosted by the Indian-American community in honour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Houston in September 2019. India looks forward to welcoming @POTUS @realDonaldTrump. It is an honour that he will be with us tomorrow, starting with the historic programme in Ahmedabad! https://t.co/fAVx9OUu1j â Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 23, 2020People on social media, at large, are of the view that rather than using the money to build a wall and concealing the reality, the money could have been used in bettering the slumâs situation. Check out some of the reactions here What is on the other side of the wall?

  3. A cop has become the hero of Rajasthan's Churu district by building a school that he runs for homeless children. The 'Apni Pathshala' school is built near the women's police station at the district's headquarters. Dharamveer Jakhar started with a mission to make homeless children study instead of begging. The brainchild behind the school is for the students to contribute to nation-building someday. © Dharamveer Jakhar Facebook Dharamveer found these kids near the station premises where they used to beg. According to The New Indian Express, Dharamveer said, “When I talked to these kids they told me they don't have parents or any other relatives. Initially, I thought they must be lying but I went to their slums and learned that they were telling the truth. I felt if I don't help them they will waste their entire life begging and started teaching them for an hour every day.” Dharamveer takes the help of two women constables and a few young volunteers who teach at the school. The school has around 450 students today. This wasn't an overnight achievement, it took them four years to reach this far. “We have had more than 450 children study at the school. We got 200 students admitted to government schools and around 90 are studying in classes VI-VIII. We maintain constant communication with them so that they can continue their studies uninterrupted", he said. A van gets students to school and later drops them to the slums. From food to stationery to school uniform, these things are provided free of cost to the students. © Dharamveer Jakhar Facebook "There are many families who come from UP and Bihar to work here. We have motivated their children to study and not to stop once they go back to their native lands. Some children have been allowed to collect garbage as their parents won't allow them to come otherwise. So we decided to let them do it after school. This way at least they get to come," the policeman added. The monthly expenses of school are around Rs 1.5 lakhs and the state government isn't helping much. So, the school depends on campaigns organised by Facebook groups and social media portals. © Dharamveer Jakhar Facebook "With the help of the police, society, and the education department, we can change their lives. These children should have special schools and separate staff to take care of them. They will never come to school on their own and there should be people dedicated to bringing them out of their miseries," he added. The cop believes that government bodies can help these children, even though the government hasn't been able to do much in helping Dharamveer. View the full article
  4. 2019 is shaping up to be a major milestone for eco-friendly tech with governments across the world including India's, taking major strides towards an electrically powered transport sector. While it may take several years for this to come to fruition, a brilliant team of Israeli engineers has come up with a novel intermediary solution - engine prototypes that run on water and ethanol. © Jerusalem Post The team from MayMaan Research LLC, is the brainchild of the Shmueli family. Led by 81-year old veteran engineer Yehuda Shmueli (who is assisted by his sons Eitan and Doron), the engines they've come up with are essentially conventional piston engines, designed to run on 70% water and 30% ethanol or any other kind of alcohol - completely bypassing the need for fossil fuels. The most radical thing about this prototype is that any car engine can be tuned and modified to fit its specifications, without major modifications. The results are twofold - not only would fossil fuels remain conserved along with spending on fuel - even the emissions figures are considerably lower. Highly reactive and toxic to life, sulphur and nitrogen oxides are completely avoided in Maymaan's engines. © Jerusalem Post The prototypes exist in four forms - a fully-functional vehicle, a power generator and different specifications of engines. We're told that the performance figures are considerable, with sufficient torque, power and efficiency numbers. Unsurprisingly, the prototypes took a staggering six years to design - with plans kept under secrecy through the development phase. Though Yehuda feels that the automobile market is currently too fixated on electric vehicles, he remains confident in his work. © Jerusalem Post "We have stayed under the radar for the past six years,” he said. “We decided that this is the right time to expose ourselves and talk to people and let the world know that such a solution exists."
  5. Adam Savage, the co-host of Mythbusters has launched a new show called “Savage Builds” and in the first episode, he built a real-life Iron Man suit that can fly. Savage and his team used a 3D printer to build the Iron Man armour and it can actually fly. The major challenge in making this suit was using 3D printers to make the armour light enough so that it could fly. © YouTube As for the flying bit, Savage worked with jet pack company Gravity and its owner, Richard Browning, to build jetpack that was capable of flight. The Iron Man Mark II armour from the movies is made entirely out of titanium. © Youtube/Cnet "It sounds like hyperbole, but I swear… if Tony Stark was not fictional and he was building an Iron Man suit right now, this is precisely how he would do it and this is the exact technology he'd be using," Savage told CNET. © YouTube The show “Savage Builds” is all about Savage trying to build things which involved the entire process of trials, tribulations, collaboration and even failures. The show will run with 8 episodes and in one of the episodes, Savage will also build the British army's Great Panjandrum. It's basically a car that has been outfitted with a massive, rocket-propelled, explosive-laden cart designed by the British military during World War II.

  6. Jason Momoa is not just admired for his choice of roles, his insane body and chiselled features, but also for the way he thinks about his family, cultural values and his expression of love for his wife and kids. The 'Game Of Thrones' actor celebrated Father's Day yesterday with his kids and unlike most people, his celebrations did not include going out for dinner or running for a swim but actually building a Harley-Davidson bike with his family heirlooms in the company of his kids. He spoke about how he grew up without a dad and therefore, being a wonderful parent to his kids was his top priority and the idea was to build something together which could be a memory they all share. “I'm a husband and a father and it is the greatest honour of my life. It has taken three decades in the making [to build the bike] – the longest dream I have ever held onto. And now, the best part is I get to share that dream with my children and the people that I love. I'm 40 [Jason turns 40 on August 1], and I finally built a bike. There are people who come into our lives like guiding spirits, providing the missing lesson we need. Teachers become friends, and friends become family”, Jason says, proving he is truly the 'moon of our moon'. © YouTube He fulfilled his own dream of building a bike with his kids and that proves that the best things in life cannot be bought. So, build more memories, spend more time with your parents, because tomorrow is not promised and today is all we have.

  8. Smartwatches come in all shapes and sizes and there's absolutely no shortage of them in the market. From budget options to expensive units, there's a lot to splurge on. But if you still can't find the one that you're looking for, then why not build your smartwatch from scratch as Samson March did. Yes, Samson March, who's an electrical engineer by profession, designed his own watch case, circuit board, and software. Heck, he even 3D printed and assembled most of the parts himself, which is just awesome. © Imgur The result? Well, he managed to build a smartwatch that brings notifications from his phone, including messages, email, and calendar. He noted that the watch can't play music yet, but we're sure he's working on that too. Oh BTW, he named his creation the “Smarch Watch”. It apparently took him a few weeks to finish the project, but he managed to even overcome one of the most annoying things about smartwatches - the battery life. Yes, Samson's watch can last up to 7 days on a single charge. In fact, he even built a charging cradle for the watch that can top up the battery in just 2.5 hours. © Imgur Interestingly, Samson said that the entire project cost him only about $50. Yes, that's just insane considering the fact that his DIY watch can do almost everything a normal smartwatch would do. Impressed much? Well, Samson was kind enough to share all the info, and you can build your smartwatch from scratch by following the simple steps given here.
  9. If you are a serious gamer who likes to game on the go, then your options are pretty much limited to a gaming laptop. Yes, gaming laptops are getting powerful by the day, but there's no match to a full-blown gaming rig. Desktops usually outperform their laptop counterparts, and that's exactly why unEvn wants you to check out its portable gaming desk. Called the unEvn ONE, it's essentially a portable gaming desk with a built-in computer chassis, integrated monitor mount, and more. Yes, the company wants you to take your professional gaming rig wherever you go. Here, check out the video - The unEvn ONE has a built-in mini ITX chassis in which you can add a motherboard, processor, power supply, up to four SSDs, and a GPU. Not just that, the desk also has an adjustable gas spring monitor arm, which can support can support a 32-inch monitor. Additionally, the unEvn ONE also has a curved front edge for added comfort, lockable drawer, and a durable and impact-resistant polycarbonate textured surface for optimal mouse usage. Oh, did I tell you it also features electric height adjustment to accommodate different chair sizes and body heights? Yes, trust me when I say this thing was built for serious gamers. So, what exactly makes this thing portable? Well for starters, unEvn says that you can fold the desk in about a minute by pressing a pair of buttons. The desk's leg folds up inside, whereas the desk itself folds in half. It also has a storage compartment for your monitor (25-inch or smaller). Of course, you also get a bunch I/O ports to connect all your peripherals. Once folded, the unEvn ONE comes in just at 32″ x 24″ x 8″ and weighs anywhere between 25-33kg depending on how crazy you decide to go with the internal components. Although don't go too hard on the components since you'll be carrying the desk like a backpack. © Kickstarter The unEvn ONE is currently looking to raise $40,000 on Kickstarter with 34 days to go. The anticipated retail price of this beast of a gaming desk is $2,499, but there are some Super Early Bird deals left that can shave off up to 50-per cent of that price.
  10. Samsung and Huawei have both announced their iterations of a folding smartphone but differ from each other in design — from the ground up. The two companies showed off the foldable smartphones a few days apart from each other, however, Huawei's CEO of mobile business just took a dig at Samsung. Talking to Business Insider, Richard Yu said that Huawei had originally developed a folding smartphone similar to the Galaxy Fold. However, the Chinese company decided to kill the smartphone because the design was "not good.” “I feel having two screens, a front screen and a back screen makes the phone too heavy," Richard Yu said about the Galaxy Fold, speaking to Business Insider. Huawei's Mate X is fundamentally different from Samsung's offering as a foldable smartphone. It has a single flexible display that folds and unfolds to become a smartphone or a tablet. Samsung's Galaxy Fold has a dedicated screen on the front of the device and separate larger screen to turn it into a tablet. However, Huawei's Mate X is quite slimmer than the Galaxy Fold which makes a bit more practical as it can fit easily in a pocket. Having said that, some also believe that Mate X is more susceptible to scratches as it is more delicate when compared to the Galaxy Fold. Both the folding smartphones cost a lot of money as the Mate X costs a staggering €2,299 ($2,600) while the Galaxy Fold costs €2,000 ($1,980). As of now, both smartphones only appeal to early adopters who are willing to spend money on the latest piece of tech.
  11. Due to a very rare genetic condition, this teenager was born without a right forearm and due to his condition, it encouraged him to build a prosthetic arm made entirely out of LEGO pieces. His name is David Aguilar, 19, who is currently studying Bioengineering in Spain. His dream is to design affordable robotic limbs for the differently abled. © Instagram "As a child, I was very nervous to be in front of other guys because I was different, but that didn't stop me from believing in my dreams," he told Reuters. In total, he has built over 4 arms. However, his latest red-and-yellow Lego arm is fully functional and can be bent at the elbow joint. Lego has been David's favourite toy since the age of nine and has become his choice of building material. "I wanted to... see myself in the mirror like I see other guys, with two hands.” © Reuters His latest models are marked with “MK” followed by a number which is basically a tribute to Iron Man and his MK suits. He even has a YouTube Channel called “Hand Solo”, where he aims to show people that nothing is impossible and disability cannot stop them. The video below shows his impressive creations at work. The MKII Prosthetic arm basically works with a Lego engine and a fishing cable. He added: "I would try to give them a prosthetic, even if it's for free, to make them feel like a normal person, because what is normal, right?” Source: Reuters
  12. CES is all about gadgets and everything electronics, and slowly over the last few years, electric cars have made it to the expo as well. Yesterday, Nissan announced its new EV -- The Leaf. It can run for more than 360 km on a single charge and goes up against the Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Kona, and Kia Niro. Electric Vehicles are becoming mainstream (not yet in India!), and Hyundai wants to take this a step further. Hyundai Elevate is the company's “walking car” concept that's not actually meant to take you over a traffic jam. It would deploy robotic legs to basically walk over rough terrain. It looks like a perfect combination of Boston Dynamics and Tesla. © Hyundai The car is the first Ultimate Mobility Vehicle, intended to blend technology found in robots and electric cars, allowing it to traverse terrain that even the most capable off-road vehicles are unable to navigate. Hyundai claims that vehicles based on the concept could one day be used to save lives in response to natural disasters, such as earthquakes, forest fires or floods. "When a tsunami or earthquake hits, current rescue vehicles can only deliver first responders to the edge of the debris field," said John Suh, Hyundai vice president. © Hyundai The company explained that these vehicles are the "last mile" support group that can tread into uneven terrain where conventional vehicles cannot. They also added the vehicle has both mammalian and reptilian walking gaits and hence can climb a 5 feet wall or gap. The platform is modular, so the body can be swapped out as needs are. Hyundai Elevate's robotic legs can enable it to walk at 3 miles per hour aside from being able to climb a 1.5-meter wall and even jump a 5 feet gap. Another use case explained by the company was, the car can walk up to a front door or a few steps of the porch and make accessibility easier for the differently abled. Mr Suh also suggested that wheelchair users could be collected via the vehicles, which could "walk" up to the front door of a building with step-only access. As of now, there is no full-scale prototype and we've only seen computer generated videos of a not-to-scale model performing its featured leg stretches. Given how difficult it is to coordinate the four-leg movement, the materialization of these concepts is far away.
  13. You know Jason Momoa. I know Jason Momoa. The world knows who Jason Momoa is. Hence, no need for introduction and let's cut to the chase- have you seen Momoa's beastly chest? Well damn, he has pectorals to die for. Now, if you don't know, for Momoa, fitness is just as dear as his people. He's been a lifelong climber and an outdoorsman. Right from surfing, to lumberjacking and hitting the weights, Momoa does it all. Though Momoa is an overall finely built man, his chest sure does stand out. And that one my friends, isn't built by outdoor work. It's built with hardcore hustle with the iron. © YouTube Before I get to the exercises that you should do in order to build a chest like Momoa, please understand that nutrition plays the most important role. More than that, you also need to see to come to terms with the fact that Momoa's diet may not really work for you. Why? Because everybody has a different body composition and one diet will never fit all. So, here's how to figure your own diet. Now, here are the exercises you can do to build insane pectorals like Momoa: 1) Pressing (Incline, Decline & Flat) © Pinterest Incline, decline or flat with dumbbells or barbell, whatever's the safest for your shoulders and allows you to lift maximum loads. Pressing work should always set the foundation of your heavy chest work, as it does for Momoa. But don't go crazy with a million sets and reps. Instead, try reverse pyramiding- lift the heaviest weight first and then follow that up with 2 sets with lower weights. The point is to achieve maximum fatigue within these 3 sets. 2) Flat Bench Dumbbell Flys © Bodybuilding-Wizard Remember Arnold going ham on this exercise? Chill, you don't have to unless you already have experience doing it. If you have shoulder issues, avoid it. For those who don't, try this. Try to achieve maximum stretch through the movement. The load is important here as well but obviously, you can't overload like on the pressing. Choose weights that allow you to keep good form. 3) Weighted Push-Ups © YouTube One of the BEST chest exercises, you can toughen up the push-ups by adding external weight. 2-3 sets of weighted push-ups with full range of motion can put your chest through some serious sorrow. Just like I always say, don't do a ton of reps. DO limited reps with the best form you can achieve and add weight to it as you get better! 4) (Chest) Pull-Overs © GenerationIron An old-school staple and a personal favorite, pullovers were once famous as the 'squats for the upper body'. Though it works the back equally well, you can make a few changes and feel it more in your chest. How to do it? Read this.
  14. Building a PC can be a daunting task as you are always left confused with what you actually want. I had one goal set in my mind — build the ultimate gaming rig in my budget. Sure, this may seem like an overkill because of all the specs and components, but it's something I wanted to build at least once in my life. I visited Gamescom this year and saw Nvidia's RTX in action first-hand. That's when I decided I wanted to build myself a gaming PC that would surpass even my own expectations. I've been saving up for a PC for almost 3 years and I finally decided to take that plunge a month ago. I've been reviewing games on it and been checking out the RTX features on 'Battlefield V', but that's for another time. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla My goal was simple, build the ultimate gaming PC that could outrun the latest games without any lag and achieve the best frame rates possible. Parameters for the best gaming PC have now changed. Earlier it was all about the best frame rates. However, I also wanted to build a PC that was 4K ready and could stream my games on YouTube/Twitch with ease. I built this PC with the help of my friend who advised me about everything I need for my setup. Here's what we ended up building: 1. CPU: Intel i7-8700K (Rs 32,627) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The CPU is probably where you should start when you try to build your own gaming rig. It's the most important component of your PC as it is responsible for putting together your entire build. We chose to get the Intel i7-8700K for our setup as Intel has been renowned for making some of the best CPUs for gaming. We could have chosen AMD's Ryzen platform instead. However, since I had my eyes set on the RTX 2080 Ti, it would not have served the purpose. 2. Asus ROG STRIX Z370E Gaming Motherboard (Rs 24,300) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Choosing the right motherboard is probably the next big step you will have to take. The ROG STRIX Z370E is one of those high-end MOBOs that offer more than you could ask for. It has two ASM3142 controllers that separately provide Type-C and Type-A ports to the rear, and a USB 3.1 Gen2 at the front. It's a very clean motherboard that offers 2 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 or dual x8), 1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (max at x4 mode), 4 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x1. It even supports NVIDIA 2-Way SLI Technology and AMD 3-Way CrossFireX Technology which we didn't take advantage of for this setup. For more detailed information about this motherboard, you can head over to ASUS website here. 3. G.Skill Trident Z 2x16GB RGB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM (Rs 26,271) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla If you need the speed, you have to invest in a solid RAM as it will make your life easier when playing games. We opted to go with the G.Skill Trident 2x16GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM as it was perfect for our gaming needs. Apart from performing well, it also needed to look good and this particular RAM is equipped with an RGB lightbar. However, the G.Skill Trident Z refuses to run at that speed but was rock solid at 3000MHz which was more than enough for daily gaming. 4. Zotac GeForce RTX 2080Ti AMP (Rs 1,15,000) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Investing in a proper graphics card can either make or break your experience. One needs to invest in a graphics card that is future proof and can run current games at ease without any frame rate drops. The Zotac GeForce RTX 2080Ti AMP has three fans which allow better cooling and overclocking. It's based on Nvidia's new Turing architecture that does a lot more than previous iterations. The Zotac RTX 2080 Ti AMP features 4,352 CUDA cores, 11GB of GDDR6 video memory, a memory clock of 14Gbps, and a stock boost clock of 1665MHz. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla It also offers Deep Learning Super Sampling or DLSS which basically loads the game into a neural network. AI then uses machine learning to produce a perfect version of the image. For more info about Nvidia's latest Turing architecture, you can read about it in detail here. 5. Corsair VS650 650 Watt Power Supply Unit (Rs 5,090) The power supply unit (PSU) is something you cannot ignore or want to save money on. With a setup like this, you will need a powerful PSU that doesn't burn up your expensive components. We chose the Corsair VS650 650 Watt PSU as it fits perfectly in our case and more importantly, can handle the amount of power our PC draws. 6. Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler (Rs 9,000) © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When you're running a gaming PC with these specs, you will need a reliable CPU cooler that will keep everything cool. We first bought the Coolermaster Liquid 240 which turned out to be faulty as the temperature on our CPU was going up to 84 degrees on idle. We replaced it with another Liquid 240 CPU cooler that also turned out to be faulty and finally decided to go with the Corsair Hydro Series H100i. From personal experience, we can confidently say always test the components you buy. With the experience we had, we're never buying another Coolermaster product again. 7. Memory © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla With a gaming rig like this, you need to invest in an SSD as it keeps your machine running at top speed. It will help you boot your system faster and reduce loading times as well. Having said that, we aren't using the SSD for booting up games as we use it exclusively for booting up applications such as Photoshop, Premier Pro and Streamlabs OBS. Instead, we installed two 7200 RPM 4TB hard drives and coupled one of them with Intel's 32GB Optane memory. This is where we store all our games and it effectively runs as fast as the SSD with the added advantage of 4TB storage. . Samsung 970 EVO SSD 500GB (Rs 17,999) . 2XSeagate IronWolf 4TB 7200RPM HDD (Rs 16,500) . Intel Optane Memory 16GB PCIe M.2 (Rs 4,089) Peripherals © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Peripherals such as a keyboard, mouse and the case are quite subjective and depend entirely on your budget and taste. The display also depends on what kind of refresh rate you require or whether you want to game in 4K resolution. So without getting into many details, here's what we are using for playing games on our setup: . CORSAIR K70 LUX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Rs 11,880) . Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Tunable Gaming Mouse (Rs 5,995) . Acer 28 inch (71.12 cm) 4K Monitor (Rs 26,500) . Aorus Gigabyte AC300W R2 ATX Mid-Tower Case (Rs 4,000) . HyperX Cloud Revolver S Headset (Rs 11,500) So there you have it, our high-end gaming PC that's future-proof for the next three years. It may seem like an overkill; however, PC gamers always aspire to have the best and we tried to achieve that with this setup. You can always run down the cost by picking cheaper options. However, in our experience, it turned out to be a bust as two coolants of the same brand turned out to be faulty. If you need help in building a PC, you can always hit us up on social media and we may give you the best options for your budget.
  15. Hershey's - the name evokes one of the most powerful forms of sweet cravings that mankind might be aware of. Be it Hershey's Kisses or Hershey's Chocolate Syrup, each one of us has some sentimental emotion attached to this brand name. Hershey's Kisses are more than mere chocolates, they became declarations of love while we were growing up. When we think about chocolate syrup, that's the name that pops into our mind by default, because we associate so many of chocolatey memories with Hershey's! © Wikipedia Such a known brand name, yet, how many of us know anything about the man after whom the chocolates bear their name? Milton S. Hershey is the name of the man with the magical hands, who blessed us with the milk-chocolate sweets that we all love so much. But did you know that Hershey had to overcome multiple failures to create something that would remain popular across many generations? Hershey didn't taste success the first two times he tried to turn his dream of making the best candies into a reality. He went completely bankrupt, but came back fighting for his dream and ended up beating all odds to build his own town from nothingness. The Backstory Hershey was born in the small town of Derry in Pennsylvania, and since his family was always on the move, because of his father's constant “get rich quick” schemes, Hershey didn't receive a very good education. © thefamouspeople He had attended six different schools by the time he was 13-years-old, and even though he was a smart kid, his mother decided to take him out of school after fourth grade, so he could learn a trade. Hershey started out as an apprentice to a printer, but didn't enjoy the job. After two years with the printer, his mother found him a new apprentice job with a candy making - and that was his first brush with what was to become the love of his life. Learning The Tricks Of The Trade Working at the Lancaster confectionary shop, Hershey learnt about the art of candy making. From caramels to fudge and peppermints, he tried his hands at everything, and thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience. He had finally found his passion. © Wikipedia The Big Leap & Failure Having found something he wished to do for the rest of his life, he decided to open his own candy business at the young age of nineteen. He borrowed money from his relatives to set up his business in Philadelphia. But as luck would have it, no matter how hard he tried, he couldn't make any profits. Soon, he ran out of money and had to close shop. The Second Fall Despite failing the first time, Hershey continued to chase his dreams and didn't give up. He moved to a different city and started to work with a candy maker. He gave another shot at his dream, and opened another candy shop in New York City. Unfortunately, he failed the second time as well. The Homecoming Hershey finally moved back to Lancaster, and started a new candy business, which specialised in making just caramels. This turned out to be a very successful venture for Hershey. Soon, he would open many candy-making factories and branches all over the country. This time, Hershey tasted sweet success. © hersheypa Inception of Hershey's Chocolates Post this success, Hershey decided to go even bigger. And he knew just how to do it. Chocolates! He sold his caramel business for 1 million dollars and invested all of it into making chocolates. His aim was to produce affordable chocolates for the common man, that was delicious too. So he decided to build a factory for the same in the countryside. But the new roadblock was where would he settle the workers who for in his factory. The Town Of Hershey Hershey decided to build a large factory in the countryside, along with a town settlement around it. People called him crazy, but Hershey went through with his plans. He established the town of Hershey in Pennsylvania. It featured lots of houses, a post office, churches, and schools. The chocolate company was a huge success. Soon Hershey's chocolates were the most famous chocolates in the world. That's the story of a resolute person who changed his own destiny, lived his dream and gave us the best chocolates we enjoy to this day.

Saji Cheriyan is winning a lot of hearts and blessings today for the wonderful contribution he has done for his brethren. He landed in UAE back in 2003 with some money and worked his way to the top through sheer hard work. Saji, an Indian Christian from Kerala, built a mosque worth 2.5 crores in Fujairah as a gift for the Muslim workers in the area, for Ramadan. © Gulf News In an interview with Gulf News, he explained the whole idea behind this. “They have to spend at least 20 Dirham to go to Fujairah city or another industrial area to attend the Juma prayer in a mosque. So, I thought it will make them happy if I build a mosque here next to their accommodation. The Awqaf officials were surprised and happy when they got to know I am a Christian who wishes to build a mosque. They have offered me all the support and were ready to offer free electricity and water and other facilities”. After word spread about his work, many donations poured in for the noble work he was doing, but Saji politely declined them all as he wanted to build the holy mosque with his own hard earned money. He has named it 'Mariam, Umm Eisa'. Humanity is alive and is being taken care of, thanks to beautiful souls like this man.

  20. How often do you come across stories that make you get off the couch and do something productive? This would be one, I bet. While your gym membership bites the dust as you are 'oh-so-busy', this man built a gym all by himself from nothing but garbage. Why? Because he and others like him in his town couldn't afford a gym membership. © Youtube Alcindo Soares was interested in sports since he was a child but never had resources to get started. He lives in a small country known as Cape Verde, in the African continent. His town is that of Santa Maria, a small beach island housing a couple thousand people only. The only source of income to the island comes from the tourists it attracts. Since clean beaches attract more tourists, Soares was always concerned about keeping the beaches clean. And like at any other tourist beach, Santa Maria beach also had lots of trash around the shores. Soares made up his mind to do something about this trash so that it can be used for the benefit the community as a whole. © Youtube © Youtube Another problem in the small town of Santa Maria was that there were no 'affordable' gyms. Only the rich could afford whatever gym did exist. He wanted to create a gym that can be afforded by common people of the island too. Soares was a painter by profession but was also interested in bodybuilding. He knew others like him who wanted to train themselves in the gym but couldn't do so due to lack of facilities around them. After all you need some form of equipment to properly train yourself. © Youtube Soares found a common solution for both the problems and decided to build a gym using the garbage on the beach. As strange as it may sound but he succeeded in building his own version of 'The Muscle Beach Gym' on the shores of the island. All the equipment in this gym has been built by Soares himself. The open air gym has dumbbells, pull up bars, benches and barbells. It's an open beach gym and is absolutely free for anyone who wants to workout. It just doesn't end. Soares wants to make a better version of this gym by adding more equipment. Not only did Soares find a solution for his training needs, he offered the same to the community for free. Now that's what you call 'building from the scratch'. Motivational, isn't it? About time to utilize your gym membership.

  21. Being skinny may be looked at as a boon from a distance, but the reality is different. Just like being obese has its set of issues, being excessively skinny can be extremely challenging as well. It can gnaw away at your self-confidence and leave you feeling inadequate, especially when every second dude seems to be hitting the gym hard as of late. But, going past the shallowness, it's absolutely fine to be skinny. In case it's affecting you, all you need to do is learn the art of layering that will take advantage of your lankiness and make your physique look attractively lean. Sidharth Malhotra was recently spotted at the airport in an outfit that we think could be the perfect example of 'how to layer' for skinny guys. © Viral Bhayani Here are 4 tricks that you can learn from this outfit and layer optimally to make yourself look built instead of skinny. © Viral Bhayani 1. While layering, the choice of a bomber jacket as outerwear is perfect for skinny guys. The ribbed neck and hems impart an inflated silhouette to the jacket that is extremely flattering and modern. It makes your upper body look bigger than it actually is. © Viral Bhayani 2. Choose a pair of trousers with a relaxed fit. You can also choose something that is slightly tapered towards the hems but never overdo it. Also, skinny lowers are a strict no-no. It will make you look even skinnier. © Viral Bhayani 3. Choose your colours wisely. Go for combinations that will give you a continuous silhouette while making one part of your outfit pop. Sidharth has chosen a white contrast as the t-shirt but kept the rest of his outfit black. It draws our attention to his upper body, making it looking stockier, thanks to the bomber jacket. © Viral Bhayani 4. Accessorize in a way that will make the pieces look like an extension of the layering elements. We are in love with Sid's choice of footwear and the statement baseball cap. The perfect accessories will subtly expand your silhouette while making your look less skinny.
  22. It's not every day that a car manufacturer launches a smartphone, but that's exactly what British firm Land Rover has done as it's just introduced a rugged handset. The iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S8 are not designed for the great outdoors. That's not a criticism, it's just a statement of fact. Sure you can whack a huge great case onto it, but for the rough heads and hiking enthusiasts, this just won't make the cut. © Land Rover The durable device, dubbed 'Land Rover Explore,' is water-proof up to 1.8 meters, and can even survive being submerged in salt water. Styled after Land Rover's own Discovery, it can also handle drops, extreme temperatures, thermal shock, and intense vibrations. A mammoth 4,000mAh battery is found inside to keep you going in remote locations, which Land Rover claims will give you two days of usage with the screen constantly on. © Land Rover The 5-inch phone with MediaTek Helio X27 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage ships with Android Nougat and a promised upgrade to Oreo at some point. It also features a custom skin for quick access to utilitarian information and custom apps for outdoor activities. It can be used even when you're wearing thick gloves and includes some essential emergency features including a compass and an SOS light. © Land Rover The Explore comes bundled with a chunky Adventure Pack that adds a 3,600mAh battery (for a total of 7600mAh) and a 25mm ceramic patch GPS antenna. The latter is a specialized component that overrides the Explore's built-in antenna and boosts the chance of you getting a signal in far-flung locations. The new 'Explore' is the work of Bullitt, a British company that has made handsets for Caterpillar, Kodak and JCB in the past. The Explore isn't cheap though, costing £599 for the phone and Adventure pack (Battery + GPS) together and will be available on the 26th April.

Admiral Abbasi addresses gathering at the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry-Geo News KARACHI: Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi announced on Wednesday that a maritime university will be set up soon in the country. Addressing a gathering at the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Admiral Abbasi said that Pakistan has been blessed with unlimited resources but unfortunately a resource like the sea is not properly utilised. The naval chief also said that maritime security should be overseen by one ministry instead of multiple ministries. Admiral Abbasi took charge of the navy in October last year and took commission in the navy's operations branch in 1981.
  24. ABC's prime-time political soap Scandal launched mid-season with little fanfare in the spring of 2012, to tepid reviews and disappointing ratings LOS ANGELES: ABC's prime-time political soap Scandal launched mid-season with little fanfare in the spring of 2012, to tepid reviews and disappointing ratings. Following the exploits of Emmy-nominated Kerry Washington as Washington, DC crisis manager Olivia Pope and her team of problem-solving "gladiators," the show didn´t immediately take off and it looked destined to be strangled at birth. As it nears its finale six years on, however, it bows out as a bona fide hit that changed the way we watch TV, ushering in the era of live-tweeting shows, known as "double-screening." Its army of vocal Twitter fans, who also call themselves "gladiators," helped ratings for "Scandal" soar more than 50 percent to 12.7 million an episode by 2014. Much of its success was driven by the goodwill it engendered as an intriguing Washington, DC political story of ***, murder and double-dealing starring a strong black female character. But its pioneering showrunner, "Grey´s Anatomy" creator Shonda Rhimes, has been credited with the insight that stars and producers live-tweeting episodes along with fans make a difference in ratings. From the earliest days, she would diligently connect with her Twitter followers, who have expanded during the show´s lifetime from 350,000 to 1.7 million. "Gladiators: ´Scandal´ would not have the opportunity to be on magazine covers without all of you watching. Thank you for making it happen!" she would tweet, giving fans a feeling of belonging that they´d never had before. 'I was very skeptical' Rhimes would offer personal insights into production and the scriptwriting process and, most importantly, rope in the cast to post their own thoughts in real-time. It is a common tactic these days but no one was really doing it -- certainly on a regular, reliable basis -- before Rhimes. By the second season, Scandal was drawing 119,000 tweets per episode and ratings began to climb, particularly among the millennial age group that advertisers covet. The show is in its final run of 11 episodes after returning last week from a mid-season break and finishes for good on April 19. Tony Goldwyn, who plays ex-president Fitzgerald "Fitz" Grant, Pope´s longtime love interest, told journalists at a recent set visit in Hollywood how the cast had embraced Rhimes´ ground-breaking strategy. "It completely transformed my perception of social media. I was very skeptical and judgmental about it, and just thought... it was irrelevant to me," said Goldwyn (Ghost, The Belko Experiment). The 57-year-old actor figured that no one would be interested in his opinions but was staggered when thousands of people began following him and responding to his tweets. "It´s kind of like being in a Broadway theatre with 1,000 people there and you´re talking to them," he said. "I was really awed by the impact of it and the fact that you can literally communicate one-on-one with people or a group." Other networks have begun to catch up but "Scandal" still finished ninth across broadcast stations last year on the social media charts, with 5.2 million interactions. 'Yearning for connection' The cast makes sure to live-tweet for the audience in both the east and west coast time zones, said Cornelius Smith Jr, who plays White House communications director Marcus Walker. "It´s a lot of fun and it´s a really different kind of way to communicate and connect. I think people are really yearning for connection in this world, especially today," he told reporters. Jeff Perry, who plays vice-president Cyrus Beene, joked that the only negative reaction to the live-tweeting had come from other actors in Hollywood. Though they can be full of praise, he said that "a little more often they´re (annoyed) at us. ´You guys made that work and now I have to tweet all the time.´" Social media aside, Scandal has an equally important reason to be proud of its reputation for pioneering TV, -- its commitment to diversity. All the characters in the most powerful roles are women, and the show has always been committed to reflecting the racial diversity of modern-day America. "When we first aired most of the questions I received centred around the fact that there had not been a black woman as the lead in a television drama in my lifetime," said Washington, 40. "It was not something I grew up seeing... and that is certainly not the case now. You´d be hard-pressed to find a network that does not have a show with a woman of colour at its centre."

He said the people had rejected the politics of allegations practiced by his opponents, alluding to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Criticising PTI further, Nawaz asked what had the party done for the province of KP where it was in power, highlighting that it was in fact the PML-N which constructed a motorway connecting the province with the Punjab to improve the standard of living for the people. "Did you see their show three days ago? Their politics have been rejected by the people," said Nawaz referring to the opposition's joint rally in Lahore's Mall road area. Referring to PTI Chairman Imran Khan cursing the parliament, Nawaz said: "he curses the same assembly for which he contests elections and draws a salary from". He added that "the man abused and accused everyone when he cursed the parliament". "I salute those judges who termed him sadiq and ameen." Nawaz further said he [Imran] had admitted to owning an offshore company and other offences but was still let off by the judges. Speaking of his disqualification, the former prime minister said justice should not be biased and should be the same for all. "The scales of justice should be even for all." He also said the sanctity of the vote should be respected and the choice of the people should not be "torn apart". During the rally, he also promised the people that his government would provide free housing if his party returns to power following the 2018 polls. Announcing his latest initiative, Nawaz said he will ensure that the poor have "a roof over their head". Elaborating further, the PML-N president also said there will be a scheme which will benefit those who reside in rented premises. "The rent salaried individuals pay for their residence will be taken as installment for their house and not as rent," The former prime minister did not give any further details of his latest electoral promise. Earlier, PML-N leader and daughter of Nawaz, Maryam Nawaz flayed the opposition and said, referring to PTI Chairman Imran Khan, that he should not blame rigging in the upcoming polls as "empty chairs do not give votes". "Those sitting on the stage in Model Town know what will become of them in the upcoming elections," and added that the people defeated the "conspirators". Taking aim at Imran, Maryam further asked why would defeat not become his fate as he [Imran] has done nothing for his province during the last four years. She also praised the people of the area for supporting the PML-N and asked them to continue doing so in the next general elections. Nawaz reached the PML-N's rally site in Haripur earlier. A stage was set up for the central leadership of the party to address the participants of the Jalsa. Party leader Murtaza Javed Abbasi had visited the venue ground earlier to check preparations for the gathering. Moreover, the party supporters and workers even brought in party's mascot, an actual lion, to the rally site. Earlier in the day, Nawaz Sharif, the president of PML-N, left Jati Umra and arrived in Haripur in the afternoon.
