  2. Well, you might be thinking that month after month you read about a small Italian town selling and listing houses in tiny villages for the price of peanuts. Trust me, I feel the same when I read and then write about it, but turns out not all things in life are complicated. At least not for the Italians, who have given us wonderful cuisine and picturesque holiday destinations. So in case you have always fancied about buying a âsapno ka gharâ for yourself, maybe this is your time to do some research and homework. Bisaccia, a small town in the Campania region, near the beautiful Naples has a cluster of houses waiting to be taken and given some major TLC. However for Rs. 78, they are not giving you Italian furniture and marbles but hereâs what the real deal is. The tightly-knit architecture of the villages there are apt for a big group of friends or families to move in together and buy land jointly. Mayor Francesco Tartaglia elaborated the situation and explained how it could work ideally. "We face a very particular situation here. The abandoned [area] spreads throughout the most ancient part of the village. Forsaken houses are clustered together, one next to the other along the same roads. Some even share a common entrance. That's why we welcome families, groups of friends, relatives, people who know each other or investors to join forces. We encourage them to buy more than just one house to actually have an impact and breathe new lifeâ, he said. Many towns in Italy have been happily disposing off unused, vacant village houses for sale and luring people with insane prices because the population there is next to nil. The good part is that you get to buy land from the government and no third party brokers are involved.

Siete mai stati qui? ð --- Foto selezionata da ð¨âð» @acareddu â Segui ð @borghi.italiani e scopri con noi i Borghi più belli d'Italia ð®ð¹ --- Tag ð #yallersitalia #borghiitaliani --- #bisaccia #avellino #campania #ilikeitaly #whatitalyisA post shared by (@borghi.italiani) The mayor also explained what awaits new residents in this beautiful town. âOur folklore and traditions are the product of a picturesque contamination between regions, we celebrate Carnival with local masks and have a variety of fairs and foods that embrace all regional traits. It's like getting the best of three regions in one single place,â he said. âBisaccia is dubbed the 'genteel town' because, despite the hardship, its people have always been respectable, welcoming, hard-working and resilient. Newcomers here are pampered and taken care of. We want this place to shine again," he added. If you ask me, Iâd love to move in right away if only I had a group of friends whoâd be willing to leave. Anyway, a human being can dream right? View the full article
  3. "Music to be Murdered By", the latest music album by Eminem, can make him the first artist to earn 10 consecutive No. 1 debuts in the United States, according to Forbes. "Music to Be Murdered By is projected to move between 300,000 and 325,000 album-equivalent units, HITS Daily Double reports. If the album does bow atop the Billboard 200, it will make Eminem the first artist to earn 10 consecutive No. 1 debuts in U.S. history", the Forbes report said. With the release of his new surprise album, Slim Shady has proved that he can still impress us not only with the pen but also his stupefying flow. It turns out to be Eminem’s 11th studio album and the follow-up to 2018’s Kamikaze which earned the critics’ nod. The newly released album was criticised in prompt response to one of its songs, 'Unaccommodating', in which Eminem makes an offensive reference to the 2017 Manchester bombing at an Ariana Grande concert that killed many people.
  4. Have you ever inspired a child to think outside the box and have them do something else for another person? I know this question is rather vague but in all seriousness, the children today are very impressionable and they only act or react on how people around them think, choose, behave and act. So, in order to make sure your child, or any child around you adopts the best of qualities in them, you have to be an example of something you want them to learn in the first place. We have a living example of that amidst us and we can learn a thing or two from her. Tunisha Khusroo Poacha, a 6-year-old, who'd seen her father donating clothes and food for the Maharashtra flood survivors, asked him why wasn't he collecting school bags, stationery and books for children too. At first, her father thought she was just saying so because she saw him donate a bunch of things, but later, he realised how serious she was about helping out children who'd lost an opportunity to complete their education, due to the floods. © The Better India Tunisha, from Nagpur, has always seen her father, Khushroo, support the needy through his NGO, Seva Kitchen. She is sensitised to issues that need humanitarian attention and help and hence, when her father helps with donations, she makes it a point to understand the larger cause at hand. When she saw him donate for the floods last year, she asked him why he wasn't doing anything for the children who were going to school. “I told her it was an oversight on my part and urged her to do something herself. She thought about it and proposed that she would donate schools bags to everyone,” Khusroo told The Better India in an exclusive interview. “My daddy gave them groceries and clothes. So I said why cannot I give them school bags?” Tunisha added, in the interview. When Tunisha and her father settled on donating school bags to the kids, her father asked her the exact number of bags she required to make the donation. Without hesitating, she picked 5,000 bags as her figure. Two months after that discussion, the six-year-old, with the help of her father, has managed to send 1000 bags to Goonj, an NGO that helps in disaster relief and management by supplying aid to the affected people and areas. Because of her efforts, low income government schools in Nagpur have received close to 1,800 bags. © The Better India Now, how the idea sprouted in a six-year-old's head to donate bags is another spectacular story! Some time ago, her uncle had gifted her a magic slate. While sitting and drawing on it one day, Tunisha asked her father, who was already helping out with donations, if there was a way to provide these magic slates for needy kids. Her father told her it would be difficult to make so many magic slate for the kids. She thought about an alternative and came up with 'The Bags of Kindness'. Now, people usually order these bags online, since they're virtually available now and the family helps as many kids as they can, through this initiative. © The Better India “I wish to give them water bottles and tiffin boxes after this", the class I student shared with The Better India. Imagine, a six-year-old's drive to help the needy has become her dream at such a young age. And she won't stop there. She will do bigger and brighter things to help them out, only because her father has been such an inspiration to her and that's the only way children today learn the good things in life!

  5. Photo: PCBKARACHI: Nahida Khan, the opening batter of Pakistan women's cricket said her team could surprise many in next month's World T20, scheduled to be played in Australia. The 33-year-old batswoman from Quetta said no team could be termed as a favourite or the underdog in the T20 format as any could surprise their opponents in the shorter format of the game. "There's nothing like the big or small team in T20s; any team can do anything, it is just how you perform on the given day," Khan told media in Karachi after opening game of PCB women's triangular tournament. "If you're at your best on the day then you can beat anyone." Nahida believes that Pakistan has the capability of beating England, South Africa, West Indies, and Thailand, along which it is placed in Group B for the tournament. "We have beaten them in the past and there is no reason why can't we beat them again," she said confidently. Also read: Pakistan women cricket team departs for England series In response to a question, the veteran of 59 ODIs and 53 T20Is said she would try to get maximum advantage of power-play overs and score as much as possible. "I am an opener and I aim to score maximum especially in the powerplay overs to help my team score big totals," Nahida added.
  6. If you're looking to buy a pair of Bluetooth earphones today, then there's nothing to worry about, really. The options are aplenty and I am sure you'll find something that fits your budget. And because there are so many options out there, we sadly don't get to see something that is very unique. However I recently came across this pair of earphones called the Sound One DC-111, which is essentially detachable. Yeah, it's one of the more unique pieces of earphones I've used to date, and here's a quick review to give you an idea of the product. 1. Design And Build Quality © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP The marquee feature of these earphones is that it can either be used as a pair of Bluetooth earphones or wired earphones. All you have to do is just detach the earbuds from the cable that it's connected to and use the one that you feel like using. The earbuds, as you can see, are connected to the cable via a proprietary port, and are easily detachable. You can't use the buds as a pair of truly wireless earbuds, which means, it always has to be connected to a cable. That's because there's no battery in the buds themselves. I must point out that the cable looks quite flimsy and it appears as though the connecting pins will break very easily. But I guess that's just a risk that you'll have to take. Inside the box, you'll get a carrying case, a MicroUSB cable for charging the batteries, extra ear tips and the necessary cable for using it in both the modes. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP It's also worth pointing out that the earbuds are very small, so it's very easy to lose them when they're not connected to a particular cable of choice. So, just make sure they're always connected to some cable or be sure to throw them in the carrying case. I really like the idea of having both modes at hand since I always find myself left with discharged earphones. It's just hard to charge all the devices and I happen to carry a lot of them at any given time. So I thoroughly enjoyed using the Sound One DC-111. There's just something very satisfying about switching modes on-the-go and not have to worry about battery life. 2. Sound Quality © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP There's no point about design and functionality if it doesn't sound good, right? Well, I was quite surprised by the audio quality of the Sound One DC-111. Sound One, for those of you who don't know, is a Hong-Kong based audio solutions company. So, let's just say that they know their products. If you're someone who cares the most about the bass, which is most people, you'd absolutely love these. It's more obvious when you're listening to, say, electronic music or pop music. The 10 mm drivers really give out deep bass with good sound output. Obviously, it's not as good as something like the Skullcandy Crusher or 1MORE Quad-driver earphones. Those are premium products, but Sound One does a really good job for the price. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP I just got back Sunburn music festival, so I am still pretty hooked to EDM and dance music. So let's just say that I spent most of my time listening to popular tracks by DJ Snake, Flume among others while testing these out and it was really good. Set the volume to 75% and you'll be good to go. 3. Battery Life The Sound One DC-111 is one of those Bluetooth earphones with which you don't really have to worry about the battery life because you can simply swap the cables and use it in the wired mode. But even in Bluetooth, I was able to listen to music for about 4-5 hours on a single charge, which is not too bad. It packs a 90mAh battery inside, which is more or less similar to most other Bluetooth earphones on the market. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP I only found myself using it in the Bluetooth mode when I am out for a quick run in the morning. The earphones also come with an IPX5 rating, which means it's waterproof and perfect for workouts. Overall, good battery life when you're using the earphones in Bluetooth mode. But like I said, you really won't have to worry about the battery life all the time because of the wired mode. 4. The Final Say So, should you buy the Sound One DC-111? Well, for Rs. 1,600 I'd say these are really good. At that price, you're getting a pair of earbuds that sound good, fits well in your ears, and have no connectivity issues as well. These are also good for workouts, so you can just use them as your second pair of earphones for working out if you want. And the fact that you're getting an option to switch to wired or Bluetooth mode whenever you want, is also a really good reason to buy these. If you're looking to buy a pair of earphones under Rs. 2,000, then I'd say these are definitely worth considering. View the full article
  7. Deepika Padukone's surprising presence at the protest by the JNU students caused a national uproar within minutes. And why not? A mainstream Bollywood superstar suddenly appearing at a protest over a very controversial issue was fodder enough for intense debates. As expected, she was showered with praise and admiration for taking such a 'bold' step, but at the same time, she was also attacked for 'promoting' her latest movie, Chhapaak. But another issue cropped up out of nowhere, where a lot of Twitter users started accusing the makers of 'changing the religion' of the attacker in the movie. By now, everyone is familiar with the story of Laxmi Aggarwal, an acid attack survivor. Her attacker's name was Nadeem Khan, however, the makers of Chhapaak were accused of changing his name to a Hindu one, Rajesh, basically bringing the religion of the culprit into the spotlight. Well, turns out, these allegations are completely false and baseless. We got to review the movie yesterday and the name of the attacker in the movie was originally supposed to be Nadeem and was later changed to Basheer Khan. Technically, people didn't even bother to check the facts before trending several hashtags like #NaeemKhan and #Rajesh to #NameItLikeBollywood on Twitter. Here are a few tweets on the same: Laxmi Agarwal faced a jihadi Acid attack in 2005 in New Delhi as she had refused to marry #NadeemKhan. Deepika Padukone's making money with movie #Chapaak on Laxmi hardly talks about Nadeem Khan. Instead they changed name to Rajesh.#boycottchhapaak#IndianSecularism — Suman Kaul Sharmað®ð³ HINDU #Official (@SumanSh58123278) January 8, 2020 His name was #NadeemKhan who threw acid on #LaxmiAgarwal 's face, but you changed the name only to dishonour #Hinduism, this is your secularism.@deepikapaukone #Boycott_Chhapaak pic.twitter.com/Ljzq5ZFx4J — Lokendra Nath (@NathLokendra56) January 9, 2020 Name of the guy who attacked Laxmi Aggarwal with acid was #nadeemkhan. But makers changed his name to "Rajesh" to suit their agenda This is how Machinery of anti Hindu Bollywood gang functions. Boycott these secular traitors of our Country #boycottchhapaak #DeepikaPadukone pic.twitter.com/KHu2947Dsp — Pratik Shinde patilð¦ (@pratik_shinde18) January 8, 2020 Bollywood is an jihadi fort that is why their jihadi worm willfully converted jihadi acid attacker name from #NadeemKhan to a Brahmin Rajesh Sharma. Now every secular in India is promoting genocide of Brahmins. Unfortunately we Brahmins have no law to protect us.#boycottchhapaak — Suman Kaul Sharmað®ð³ HINDU #Official (@SumanSh58123278) January 8, 2020 Coming to the movie, Rajesh is actually one more character in the movie who plays Malti's love interest when she was a teen. For more information on the same, you should first watch the movie. Chhapaak will finally hit the screens tomorrow and will clash with Ajay Devgn's much-talked-about period drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. Planning to catch a screening? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article
  8. Can money really buy happiness? Well, in one of a kind social experiment, a Japanese billionaire named Yusaku Maezawa is planning to give away a huge amount of money to his social media followers to draw some inferences from it. His bizarre idea has received a lot of mixed reactions from the people on the internet. Basically, Yusaku wants to understand if money can truly buy happiness and he has decided to give away a whopping 9 million dollars to 1000 random Twitter followers. His tweet has already gone viral. Besides, his post also has a video where he is explaining his concern for this “serious social experiment”. ð謹è³æ°å¹´ð ãç·é¡10ååã#å澤ãå¹´ç 100ä¸åã1000人ã«ãã¬ã¼ã³ããã¾ãï¼ 100ä¸åã§çãã¾ã®äººçããããããã¼ã«ãªãã¾ãããã«ã å¿åæ¹æ³ã¯åã®ãã©ã­ã¼ã¨ãã®ãã¤ã¼ãã®ãªãã¤ã¼ããç· åã¯1æ7æ¥23:59ã¾ã§ã ä¼ç»è¶£æ¨ãå½é¸æ¡ä»¶ãªã©ã¯YouTubeã§èª¬æãã¦ã¾ãã https://t.co/kBgwwmJoaP pic.twitter.com/1Fr0Vq4i6Z — Yusaku Maezawa (MZ) å澤åä½ (@yousuck2020) December 31, 2019 He hopes that this experiment is beneficial to economists as well in tracking how the world can work with money being readily available. His idea is to see how getting a basic fixed income can affect people's lives. Interestingly, Yusaku is also the only private passenger who flew on Elon Musk's Space X and is one of the biggest entrepreneurs in the world who is always making headlines for some or the other reason. Well, we'd love to participate in this social experiment and contribute to whatever conclusions he wants to draw. View the full article
  9. With the success of Ghost Stories and a couple of more ambitious projects in her bag, Janhvi Kapoor is currently on cloud nine as she officially entered the '2020 will be my year' club. She maybe only two projects old, but she's already proved that she's here for the long run. Recently, the Dhadak actress graced the cover of iDiva and had what can be called an honest conversation about herself, her stardom, people's expectations from her, her strategy of dealing with social media trolls and her idea of an ideal man. While the rumours of Ishaan and Janhvi float on social media once in a while, Janhvi just revealed who her ideal man is. When asked about who she will kill, marry and date; she conveniently dodged the options of 'kill' and 'date' but she did reveal who she wants to marry.

I think I would be happy if I married him. He's super cute and I also think he has a great sense of humour which is very important." Take notes, guys, take notes! Every time people talk about star kids, they assume that things are pretty easy for them, they don't have to work that hard to stick around in the industry. Well, that maybe true but so is the fact that they sometimes have to work extra hard to prove that they can survive even without their family name. Janhvi said, "I think of it as a responsibility. My family, my mom in particular, got so much love and appreciation from the audience. As a consequence, I have also got some of that love. I now have to work doubly hard to prove that I deserve it, on my own, also." She further said that she's not vying for stardom, she's here to do good work. While she has yet to learn a lot about movies, she's cracked one thing - dealing with social media trolls which is not everyone's cup of tea. Janhvi has been a constant target for trolls on social media, who seem to be always looking for reasons to take a dig at her. He pro-tip: she doesn't care. View this post on Instagram Ghost Stories ð» now on Netflix! A post shared by Janhvi Kapoor (@janhvikapoor) on Jan 1, 2020 at 2:00am PST "You have to be brave to put yourself out there. In the beginning it was really weird, but I have gotten used to the social media hate. I am just trying to be as authentic as possible," said Janhvi who has 7.1 million followers on Instagram. She further added, "I don't care if you think I am wearing too much makeup, even though I am not. If you think my gym shorts are too short, then you probably don't sweat on your legs as much as I do. I am sorry, my sweat glands work like that. You probably don't work out as much as I do." On the work front, she is currently working on Takht, Dostana 2 and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.

  10. A display featuring missiles and a portrait of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is seen at Baharestan Square in Tehran, Iran. Photo: ReutersIran’s launching of more than a dozen missiles at American-led forces in Iraq on Wednesday came after years of preparing for a confrontation with its superpower foe, whose forces are vastly larger and more advanced, reported Reuters news agency on Wednesday. The Gulf country has more than 500,000 active-duty personnel, including 125,000 members of its elite Revolutionary Guards, according to a report last year by the International Institute for Strategic Studies. But international sanctions and restrictions on arms imports have made it hard for Iran to develop or buy more sophisticated weaponry. To compensate for the imbalance, Iran has developed “asymmetrical” responses - ballistic missiles, deadly drones and a web of militia allies in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen, among other things - with the aim of being able to inflict pain while avoiding the traditional battlefield. Iranian minister Amir Hatami walks at an exhibition in Tehran, Iran, Faberuary 2, 2019. Photo: ReutersAlso read: Iran missile strike: Tehran claims 80 dead in attack on US bases “From a conventional military perspective they would get absolutely hammered,” said a British former military commander who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter. “Their conventional military is very, very sparse and quite old and quite out of date. They’ve spent all their money on asymmetric attack capabilities. In that regard they’re very well prepared.” Until Wednesday, the strategy had deterred a direct conflict with the US as tensions spiked since Washington quit a multi-lateral nuclear deal in 2018 and reimposed sanctions. Gulf rival Saudi Arabia recently witnessed the damage that missile and drone assaults can cause, after a strike on its oil facilities last year briefly halved production and knocked out 5% of global crude supply. Riyadh and Washington blamed Iran for the attack. Photo: ReutersAlso read: Khamenei says Iran strike on US bases ‘a slap in the face’ for Washington Iran has built the largest stockpile of ballistic missiles in the Middle East. Some are based on the older, widely used “Scud” designs, with a range of at least 750km (466 miles). Others, based on the North Korean No Dong, can reach up to 2,000km, within reach of Israel or southeast Europe, according to a US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report last year. The Revolutionary Guards fields a fleet of missile-armed speedboats and midget submarines it can deploy against US military ships or commercial tankers to disrupt the flow of oil in Gulf waters, where Washington says Tehran attacked six tankers last year. “If you look at ships, tanks, jet fighters, Iran looks very weak. But if you’re looking at anti-ship missiles, ballistic missiles, UAVs and things like that then it looks a lot more capable,” said Jeremy Binnie, Middle East and Africa editor for Jane’s Defense Weekly. Photo: ReutersAlso read: Ukrainian jet crashes in Iran, all 176 on board dead Iran’s fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can be used for surveillance or armed with explosives, according to military experts. “Iran in the Persian Gulf doesn’t really need to have big ships, not necessarily frigates and destroyers. Speedboats, gun boats, missile boats can do the job,” said Hossein Aryan, a military analyst who served 18 years in Iran’s navy before and after the 1979 Islamic revolution. Major-General Qassem Soleimani, whose killing in a US drone strike in Baghdad last week sparked the Iranian retaliation on Wednesday, was the head of the Revolutionary Guards Quds Force. The group handled clandestine operations outside Iran, working closely with allied military forces and militias in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

US officials have said Soleimani was killed because intelligence indicated forces under his command planned attacks on US targets in the region, although they have provided no evidence.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah, along with a handful of the Iraqi militias closely allied with Iran, have already pledged to take revenge against American forces for Soleimani’s death. More than 5,000 US troops are in Iraq along with other foreign forces as part of a coalition that has trained and supported Iraqi security forces against the threat of Islamic State militants. American troops are also stationed at bases in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, which hosts Al-Udeid air base, the largest US military facility in the region. Bahrain is headquarters of the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet.

Give it a fight and stop the urge. Everything that you find is not necessary to become a part of your outfit. Instead of going the conventional route, take inspiration and swap your basics for something extra. It can be anything, classics or even basic T-shirts. The thing to remember here is to buy clothes that fit well and actually dovetails with your personality, rather impulsive shopping. 2. Experiment More With Your Style View this post on Instagram Checked my blood group. It was G+ ð A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Nov 29, 2019 at 2:23am PST 2018, you wore a T-shirt with ripped jeans and come 2019, you wore the combination with new sneakers. Now, that's not called experimenting. The key to a great outfit is trying several textures, patterns or silhouettes that will elevate the overall get up.

This one is not mandatory but if you wish to up your game, you can definitely create a perfectly-layered outfit. The trick to layering is to stick with lighter pieces like a denim shirt or a lightweight bomber jacket. When the temps drop, try it with a neutral trenchcoat or a leather jacket. Shedding a few layers on your outfit is always a good idea and believe us, it's an instant way to make a statement. 5.

Well, your shoe-rotation needs an update. Why not add kicks that look luxurious and are equal parts of stylish and comfortable? The best way to do so is to get a pair of chunky sneakers that adds an off-duty element to your garb, while also looking undeniably cool. Besides that, lay your hands on loafers that will let you be fashion-forward and dovetail well with many of your outfits. View the full article
  12. If you ever thought you needed a second display for a smartphone, your prayers may have just been answered. We've seen a new wave of foldable smartphones that offer a similar sort of convenience, however these smartphones are still quite expensive and in early stages of foldable screen technology. However, there is a way to add a second screen to your smartphone with an inexpensive solution that gives you some of the same abilities such as using multiple applications at once, better multi-tasking capabilities, access files and photos from dual screens and more. © castAway The smartphone case is called castAway and can connect with any iOS or Android phone and also works when detached from your smartphone.

  13. 2020's Golden Globe Awards kicked off the year with several memorable moments - with my personal favourite being Joaquin Phoenix's incredible 'Best Actor' speech. Spearheaded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the awards themselves have turned 77 years old - just 15 years younger than the Oscars. Despite the age gap, however, it seems that both awards are closely linked - not only do they feature quite early in the year, but recent data suggests that if you're looking to gamble, the Golden Globes are a decent Oscar predictor. © Statista Using the 'Best Picture' category as an example, 66 per cent of all Oscar-winning movies since 1950 had won a Golden Globe before, most frequently (49% of the time) in the “Best Drama” category. That would make Sam Mendes' 1917 the favourites for this year's main prize at the Oscars. If you're a Mendes fan, however, hold your horses. A recent trend seems to have tilted the status quo, and not in your favour. While a Golden Globe winner also won at the Oscars 12 out of 15 times between 1990 and 2004, 9 of the 15 “Best Picture” winners since 2005 were previously snubbed at the Golden Globes. Speaking of snubbing - despite winning 34 nominations, Netflix only won two awards, not including any of the night's biggest prizes. Those went to 1917, which won 'Best Motion Picture – Drama' and 'Best Director – Motion Picture' and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which was crowned 'Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy'. Netflix had high hopes going into award season this year, with The Irishman, Marriage Story and The Two Popes all considered serious Oscar contenders. Not all is lost for the world's largest streaming service, however, because being snubbed at the Golden Globes doesn't necessarily spell doom for the Oscars, which will be awarded on the 10th of February.

  15. When we talk about a gym ensemble, the most important pieces would be a t-shirt, joggers and comfortable trainers. That being said, if there's someone who has been constantly serving us with all the motivation, it is Arjun Kapoor with his latest transformation and his impressive gym looks. View this post on Instagram Getting ready for the new decade with a smile on my face ð A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on Jan 2, 2020 at 10:33pm PST Sartorially speaking, Arjun has time and again proven his fashion prowess and turned heads with some impeccable ensembles. Then be it him wearing kurta pyjama with security tag sneakers or strutting in strange pants, he is ruling the fashion arena, lately. While his promotion looks are head-turning, even his gym looks are nothing less than an inspiration. © Viral Bhayani Arjun is now known for his fashion quotient and here's another proof of that. Recently, he was papped wearing buttoned joggers with super comfortable sneakers. We have to say he has established his claim of being the most fashionable at all hours. © Myntra He is wearing OG Adibreak Track Pants by Adidas Originals. The brand brings back the basketball silhouette of the 90s. The original making of these pants has now been modernised with recycled polyester. Furthermore, these pants feature contrast panel with metal snaps from ankle to waist. © Myntra This product minimises the environmental impact with its recycled fabric which truly makes it an exemplary choice. Not just that, these track pants are available on many e-commerce websites for Rs. 4,000. Now, that's what we call affordable. © Amazon Coming to his sneakers, Arjun looked zany with his Asics FuzeX Lyte 2. Just as the name suggests, this pair snugs well and is super light on the feet. You can strut wearing them wherever you like, even snug in your bed! The seamless construction causes less friction with its fuzeGEL technology. © Viral Bhayani Even the sneakers are inexpensive and cost about Rs. 4,000 approximately. And since we are constantly hunting for an affordable pair of sneakers for the gym, we guess this one is it! Truly, we love how Arjun is refashioning his gym look and making it relatable for us. Well done! View the full article

And here's the thing, oils aren't just for dry skin, they work well for any skin type as long as you know which oil will work best for you. 1.

Nourish Your Lips © Disney Winter season has the tendency of drying up your lips, and also make your lips flaky and chapped. An easy solution is to add essential oil to your skin routine and apply it on your lips. Try jojoba oil, almond oil or apricot kernel oil. 3. Tame The Frizz © Gettyimages Hair gets frizzy no matter the season for different reasons. But what tames the frizz is binding oil that won't let your strands get affected by the humidity in the air.

  17. For a young kid who took up the beautiful game to overcome his humble beginnings and find purpose in life, Cristiano Ronaldo has come a long way to establish himself as one of the greats to have ever graced football. The Portuguese star has been rewriting history books for over a decade and, despite his age, he is giving no sign of slowing down. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner might have moved away from star-studded Real Madrid, but he continues to produce magical moments in a bid to take Italian giants Juventus to ultimate glory. But, despite breaking numerous records last year, 2019 was not a memorable one for the Portugal captain. © Reuters The 34-year-old saw Virgil van Dijk win the UEFA Player Of The Year Award before watching his arch-nemesis Lionel Messi clinch a record sixth Ballon d'Or trophy in Paris last year. As he finished third in the Ballon d'Or list, the only consolation for Ronaldo was the Serie A's best player honour last year. But, it's a new year and, those who know Ronaldo would agree that the Juventus striker is not the one to back down. From most hat-tricks in Champions League to leading goal-scorer in international football, here's a look at five records that Ronaldo can break in 2020 to reclaim his lost glory: Most Champions League Titles © Reuters The Portuguese footballer will be eager to propel Juventus to their third Champions League title (their first since 1995-96 season) when they begin their Round of 16 journey against Lyon in February. If Juventus manage to win Europe's biggest club competition this season, it will be the sixth time when Ronaldo emerges as the Champions League winner. The Juventus striker won his fifth Champions League title, playing for Real Madrid, when 'Los Blancos' edged past Jurgen Klop's Liverpool in the 2018 final. He is now just one title away from matching the heroics of Francisco Gento, who currently holds the record for most Champions League final wins, recorded between 1956 and 1966 for Real Madrid. Most Goals In European Championship © Reuters Apart from Champions League, the 34-year-old also has a great opportunity to become the leading goal-scorer in European Championships. Representing Portugal, Ronaldo has already scored nine goals for his country which has put him on level terms with Michel Platini as Euro's top goal-scorer. With the UEFA Euro 2020 group stage slated to begin from 12th June with Italy taking on Turkey in Rome, Ronaldo will be eager to get his name on the scoresheet to steer clear of Platini when he takes the field against Germany in Portugal's opening match on 20th June. Most Champions League Hat-tricks © Reuters Scoring a hat-trick in Champions League is nothing new to Ronaldo. Last March, it was Ronaldo's hat-trick that allowed Juventus to overturn a two-goal deficit in the second-leg against Athletico Madrid and propelled them into the Champions League Round of 16. It was Ronaldo's eighth hat-trick in the competition - a joint-record he currently holds alongside Messi. Losing the Ballon d'Or to his biggest rival last year, Ronaldo will be looking forward to beating Messi to a Champions League treble this year, which will allow him to claim bragging rights for some time to come. Top-Scorer In English, Spanish & Italian Top Flights © Reuters For someone who began his career with Sporting Lisbon, Ronaldo has come a long way to dominate top-flight competitions in three different countries. Under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson, Ronaldo took the footballing world by storm with a sensational, trophy-winning stint at Manchester United where he also emerged as the league's top goal-scorer. After ruling English Premier League charts, Ronaldo went on to taste more success with Real Madrid in Spain's top-flight competition La Liga where his unmatched goal-scoring streak enthralled a packed Santiago Bernabeu for years. With his ongoing stint at Juventus, Ronaldo has a great opportunity to become the first player in history to finish as the leading goal-scorer in the English, Spanish and Italian top-flight competitions. With 10 goals to his name, Ronaldo is currently joint-fourth in the Serie A goal-scoring charts behind Joao Pedro (11), Romelu Lukaku (12) and Ciro Immobile (17). But, if the Portuguese phenom manages to finish the season as the Italian league's top-scorer, he will have a chance to etch his name in the history books for a record that will take some doing to be matched, let alone shattered. Leading Goal-Scorer In International Football © Reuters Ali Daei is not the name that comes to mind when anyone talks about the leading goal-scorer of all time in international football. A striker and captain of his side, Daei played for prominent clubs including Bayern Munich and scored 109 goals for Iran - a record that still stands tall. While Daei played his last game for Iran in 2006, Ronaldo, fourteen years later, is mighty close to dethroning the Iranian from the top spot. The Portugal forward has 99 goals to his name and will be raring to go all guns blazing for his country this year in a bid to become the top international marksman of all time. View the full article
  18. Not everyone uses a smartphone as companies like Reliance Jio, Nokia and others have launched feature phones with 4G capabilities in the past. These phones are particularly popular amongst users who don't really know how to work smartphones or just prefer using feature phones. Having said that, digital payments took off with a great start in India with UPI payments being the most popular payment mode. © HMD-Global However, over half a billion users in India are not able to use digital payments simply because they use feature phones instead. In order to tackle this problem, the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) collaborated with CIIE.CO and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to kickstart a competition for anyone who can figure out digital payments on feature phones. © Youtube/Microsoft The competition can be taken up by individuals or by enterprises and the best solution will win a total amount of Rs 35 lakh or $50,000. The second place will get a prize money of $30,000 while a prize money of $20,000 is up for grabs for the third spot. The last date to file your application for the competition is January 12, 2020. © HMD-Global One can apply for the competition via an online process and CIIE.CO & NPCI will select the most viable and promising solutions. Shortlisted individuals or enterprises will then be granted access to NPCI's API to start building their solutions. As per the website, the selected candidates will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to CIIE.CO team during the contest. “CIIE.CO can also facilitate introductions to other investors on a case to case basis. Winners will be evaluated for further acceleration/investment support via the Bharat Inclusion Initiative,” it said. View the full article
  19. 2020 should be the year of firsts. I mean, it's the actual end of a decade and the beginning of a brand new one, so if you add things you've never accomplished before, to the 2020 list, there is a possibility of absolute success. Well TBH, I am not sure about that but there's no harm in being thoroughly optimistic, is there? © Thinkstock In the same vein, if you've been searching for love and haven't found it yet, there's a good chance that you can find it in the new year. Letting go of old dating patterns and finding new ones is the best thing to do, to shed some negativity where love is concerned and you can only do that, if you truly believe you will find it. We can help you a little more in recognising and knowing what you need to do to find brand new live in 2020, or fall in love for the first time in an absolutely new decade. Here are 3 ways you can find love in 2020! (1) Make Sure You're Ready To Date While heartbreaks are synonymous with bringing in the new year, you have to know for certain if you're ready and willing to date someone new. If you're not, that's alright too, take your time. Sometimes a bad break up or the fact that you're still stuck in the single's haze can make you realise you're not ready to move on with anyone at all. So, weigh your feelings and if you're ready to date, put yourself out in the market. © MENSXP (2) Get Off The Apps Sure you can still use apps to find that significant other. That's the only way to find someone these days, TBH. But if you want to explore this a little further, maybe finding someone organically can be better. Be more social in your endeavours, head out more and meet people. Not just at bars, but at social gatherings, festivals, events and things that happen around the city. Chances are you might meet someone with similar interests. © Youtube (3) Declutter Your Surroundings Since it's the new year and possibly the new you, start by decluttering everything around you. Things you don't need, things that are lying around gathering dust. This is an important exercise to make space not just in your immediate surrounding but also your mind and the emotional space, inside. If you have to welcome someone new into your life, it's best to declutter the past or any other emotional baggage you've been holding onto. Cleaning your immediate surrounding and decluttering your space can help a great deal with this. © Thinkstock While 2020 comes with a lot of promises, it's also a challenging decade. Finding love should be one such challenge because honestly, it's time we go back to finding love organically, in a more old-school way, only because it lasts longer. So, here's conjuring a boatload of luck for you to find the love you need in the year 2020. View the full article
  20. The term 'New Year's resolutions' and failure is almost synonymous. For one reason or another we simply do not get to tick off each one on 'The List' that is prepared at the beginning of every year. This really has turned into a ritual of sorts, we have these set of things we want to do/achieve throughout the new year to turn into “better version of ourselves” when the year ends. © Unsplash But no matter our 'good intentions', it's always a marvel if we even manage to get to the halfway mark on The List. The failure, while it subconsciously always seems inevitable, is disheartening all the same. So this is us, the good people at MensXP, telling you about 7 easy and resolution-worthy goals to set for yourself that anyone can keep without the fear of failing, yet again. These effective and morale-boosting resolutions are definitely worth a try when failing isn't on your list. *winks* 1. Drinking An Extra Glass Of Water Health is wealth, bro. No matter which year you just entered, you cannot deny the fact that being healthy tops all else. And the easiest trick to start with that is to squeeze in an extra glass of water intake during the waking hours. Because who are we kidding, none of us are doing our '8 glasses' daily anyway. So this will be huge. 2. Waking Up 15 Minutes Early To Avoid Morning Frenzy You know how it is, we all love the Snooze more than our partner's face every morning. But the craziness that ensues hugging our pillows an extra 15 minutes is vicious! Instead, let's try to ditch the snooze and wake up 15 minutes early to avoid a frantic start to our morning every single day. 3. Saving (At Least) 1000 Bucks Extra Every Month Doesn't sound like much, but don't forget that “little drops make a mighty ocean”. We're sure you can cut down on one pizza night, or a couple of avoidable Uber rides and Sunday brunches to try and save at least Rs 1000 at the end of every month. Which automatically becomes 12,000 at the end of the year! 4. Taking The Stairs At Least Once A Day This is definitely doable - given that you don't live on the ground floor. In which case you can use the stairs at work or vice-versa. Stop with the excuses already and get to it. 5. Giving Your Family/Friends An Extra Call Why is it that procrastination becomes our best friend when it comes to reaching out to our family/friends and enquiring about their well-being or getting general life-updates? In today's fast-paced world while all of us are busy, the least we can do is make an extra call to really reconnect. It only takes a few minutes every few weeks. That's doable, right? 6. Donating Stuff Be it clothes, books, furniture or other random stuff around the house that you just plan to throw away, try donating them instead. As long as they are in a condition to be a second-hand treasure, pass it on to make someone else's life better and happier too. 7. Trying New Food Not too important perhaps, but definitely very much fun. Trying new cuisines and flavours isn't everyone's cup of tea, so for anyone who has been too chicken to take their taste buds for a ride, this is your year! How difficult can it be, right? A new tadka here, some new ingredients there and you will have discovered a whole new culinary world. View the full article
  21. Ravichandran Ashwin was considered to be one of the most notorious cricketers of 2019. The primary reason behind this was his actions during an Indian Premier League match between his Kings XI Punjab and Rajasthan Royals, earlier this year. Recently, the cricketer took to Twitter to share some time with his fans and interact with them a little. “Who are the potential batsmen you can Mankad this IPL? #askash,” asked a fan to which the all-rounder replied: “Anyone that goes out of the crease.” Ashwin made headlines when he 'mankaded' Royals batsman Jos Buttler during a crucial moment of the match which turned out to be the moment which swung the game in favour of Preity Zinta's side. Ravi Ashwin's Mankad garnered widespread condemnation from the cricket world. But there's another key side to the debate. MORE: https://t.co/OHfU7KCorD pic.twitter.com/U35w475JYS — Fox Cricket (@FoxCricket) March 26, 2019 Even though Ashwin and Co. emerged victorious, he was thrashed by people all over the internet. People called him frustrated for not being able to make a comeback to the national team and considered him to be a man who would depend on cheap tricks to get the win. Buttler's national teammate James Anderson also decided to show dissent towards what Ashwin did by shredding his image on camera. EXCLUSIVE: @jimmy9 give us his unique take on @josbuttler's controversial run out last week... More rows should be settled like this. Full story on this week's #Tailenders https://t.co/YOQ4PMSwiu pic.twitter.com/hYCPpdSqJm — Greg James (@gregjames) March 31, 2019 But, Ashwin did not hold back in replying either. “Today Jimmy Anderson might feel that whatever I did was wrong. Maybe, tomorrow he might end up doing it [a 'Mankad']. Who knows? It is a question of perception of right and wrong. I don't think in this case it is necessary because it is in the law and I did,” he said. “Everybody who knows me, it is very clear (to them) that I don't do anything that is illegal.” Ahead of the 2020 IPL Auction, Ashwin was traded to a Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals.

  22. Besides Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, if there's another thing that still makes us laugh out loud, it is Sunny Singh's dialogue “Chal Jhoothi”. Even though he is low-key with his appearances, the time when he does make one, we can't help but notice all his looks. © Viral Bhayani Another thing that strikes the most about him is the fact that he is a low-key sneakerhead too. While we have seen many elite B-town stars making a statement in chunky pair of sneakers, Sunny accentuates his outfit wearing a snazzy pair that's also affordable. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Recently, he was spotted with his co-star Sonnalli Seygall, promoting his upcoming movie, Jai Mummy Di. He wore a black tracksuit that had the whole athleisure vibe to it. Even though the outfit had a street-style edge to it, did you see the way he took it a notch higher with his sneakers? We scoured and found that they are not just any pair but he legit wore 'alien' sneakers with bubble sole. If you are wondering what they are, take a look here! © Puma © Puma Sunny is wearing Puma's Cell Alien OG sneakers. The pair includes bubble heel that grants instant comfort to this pair. For running, this pair makes for the best choice. The mesh upper, rubber outsole, IMEVA midsole adds grip and traction. Furthermore, the pair has branding on the tongue. © Viral Bhayani The pair is designed in vibrant hues of blue, neon and white. The reason why its called alien sneakers is due to its edgy construction with a bubble sole that we have not seen on any other pair so far. It's a fantastic and an outlandish pair that easily passes off as one of the edgiest one of 2019. The maximum grip and durability make this one a must-have and why not? They are available just for Rs. 6,000 on Puma's website. It's a great investment and if you really wish to hoard a pair that's OTT, consider these sneakers. Well done, Sunny! View the full article
  23. It's Christmas eve today and if you are looking to surprise the gadget lover in your life or simply shopping for some last moment gifts, tech gadgets are the easiest way to go. So, here are some really good tech gift items that are worth checking out - Ultimate Ears Wonderboom © YouTube/ Adam Savage's Tested Any celebration is incomplete without music. And if you think that's the right gift to give someone then the UE Wonderboom 2 is the one to check out. It's one of our favorite Bluetooth speakers around and it's just perfect for every occasion. It's got astonishingly good sound and it's waterproof too, so that's awesome. iPad Pro © YouTube/ Jonathan Morrison iPad is like the go-to option when it comes to tech gadget gifts. You just can't go wrong with the iPad, regardless of who you're buying it for. It's one of the most versatile pieces of tech we've used, be it for media consumption like watching movies and TV Shows, or playing video games. And with Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ available now, you just can't go wrong with this one. Couple this with a yearly subscription of a streaming service and you're sorted. Nintendo Switch © YouTube/ Apple Explained We've included Nintendo Switch in almost all of our gifting guides and rightfully so. Nintendo really nailed the handheld form factor with this one and how. Start playing at home on a big screen and simply pick up when you're on the go. Also, the games library for Switch has seen some really impressive games over the years. From Zelda to even newer titles like Wolfenstein, there's anything and everything you can ask for. You can also choose to go with the Nintendo Switch Lite option, but you'll miss the fun of having joy-cons and being able to play on a big screen, so keep that in mind. AirPods Pro © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee Apple's update to the highly popular pair of earbuds arrived a couple of months back, and they're just awesome. It's like Apple took something that was already very popular and made it even better. The new AirPods Pro has everything that the regular AirPods have and then some. You get new fancy features like noise-cancelation, which works flawlessly. AirPods Pro also comes with ear tips, which means they're less likely to fall out of your ears. OnePlus 7T © OnePlus If you're looking to buy a new smartphone for someone, then just go with the OnePlus 7T.

  25. Peshawar High Court Chief Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth. Photo: FileWhen the detailed verdict, of the high treason case against former president Pervez Musharraf, was made public, one paragraph stood out. In it, Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth, who headed the three-member bench, ordered the former army chief’s corpse to be hung in a main square for three days. Politician and lawyers were aghast at the severity of the judge’s words. Others judges on the bench also disagreed with denying a convict dignity after death, as enshrined in the constitution. A few hours later, Pakistan’s law minister held a press conference to excoriate Justice Seth, zooming in on the single para rather than the other 169 pages of the judgement. The minister called the judge ‘mentally unfit’ and ‘incompetent’. He then announced that the government will be filling a reference against the judge to restrain him from discharging any administrative duties. If the government is to press ahead with it, the president will need to send a direction to the Supreme Judicial Council to probe the matter.

The Council may initiate a probe, on the request of the president or on its own, if it suspects that a judge may be incapable of properly preforming his/her duties by reason of physical and mental incapacity. Or, a judge maybe guilty of misconduct. All proceedings are in camera and are not open to public. In either case, if a judge is charged with the above, a reference against him/her will be sent to the president, who will then remove the judge from court. Musharraf treason case: All evidence points to crime of high treason, court says How is ‘misconduct’ and ‘mental incapacity’ defined?The Supreme Judicial Council Procedure of Inquiry 2005, which lays down the rules for the functioning of the Supreme Judicial Council, defines ‘misconduct’ as: conduct unbecoming of a judge, disregarding the code of conduct under Article 209 and someone who is found to be inefficient. Incapacity is described as ‘all forms of physical or mental incapacity which will render the judge incapable of preforming his duties in office.’ How would the case against Justice Seth proceed?If the government plans to make its case against Justice Seth on the basis of him being ‘mentally unfit’, therefore a case of ‘incapacity’, the Council may summon any expert, states the Procedure of Inquiry, to probe the ‘incapacity’ of the judge and order a medical examination by a local or foreign expert. The opinion of the majority judges will prevail. However, the Procedure of Inquiry also clearly states that incase it finds ‘the information or evidence provided to it was false or with the sole intention to malign a judge, or scandalizing the court or to undermine it in any form whatsoever, it may direct action against all those who are found to have provided the said information, or evidence as the case may be.’
