  1. Arguably one of the most successful off-spinners India has ever produced, Harbhajan Singh appears to be ageing like fine wine. At the age of 40, Bhajji might no longer be in fray for Team India selection, but there is little doubt over his importance in the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) camp in the Indian Premier League (IPL) over the years. But, at a time when his Chennai teammates are busy sweating it out in training sessions ahead of the thirteenth edition of the IPL in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the right-arm spinner is back home with his family, killing his time on social media. Following in the footsteps of Suresh Raina, the Indian cricketer had recently withdrawn from the IPL 2020 season due to personal reasons. Modern thali with space for phone orders urs pic.twitter.com/jRfW7REH9M — Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) September 10, 2020 Though he didn't join the Chennai camp in Dubai, Bhajji continues to keep the fans entertained through his social media activity. More recently, the star bowler shared a hilarious post on Twitter where he introduced the concept of a 'modern thali'. Sharing a hilarious photo on Twitter, Harbhajan wrote: "Modern thali with space for phone, order urs". A typical 'thali' is a meal, full of a variety of dishes, that is served in Indian households and restaurants. But, its meaning is derived from the utensil, a thali also known as a plate, that is used to serve the meal. There are different spaces made available on the 'thali' to serve several food items. But, as Harbhajan pointed out in the tweet, its evolved version might come equipped with a space for keeping mobile phones. This is the best innovative solution for a real problem of current world. — Dr.Deepa Sharma (@deepadoc) September 10, 2020Hahahahahahaahahahah hahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahshhahshahaha🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 bc kya tweeet hai🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 epic legendary — अनन्या (@Ananyaa__18) September 10, 2020Bhajji sir the meme is very funny sir. I can't stop laughing sir. When you retire, please become a meme creator sir — Thani Oruvan (@thani_oruvan_) September 10, 2020This is funny as well as saddening... Respect your food and have it with dedication — SHAYAN GHOSH (@imShayanGhosh15) September 10, 2020Bhajji Bhai! Aisa hi raha to phone IP68 ke saath India Masala, sambhar, dal resistance bhi ayenge — Thoughtfull (@82Vikram) September 10, 2020Space for phone, but the dahl is in another bowl lol — Ghost Singh (@GhostSingh7) September 10, 2020Chawal replaced with phone, daal bhi dal hi lo paaji — Ravi Varujana (@RaviVarujana) September 10, 2020Charger kidhar rakhne ka re baba !!! — Gaurav Patil (@gauravpatil2000) September 10, 2020While there was a laugh riot on social media, things got pretty serious for Harbhajan recently as he filed a police complaint against a Chennai-based businessman. According to a TOI report, the off-spinner has been duped of Rs 4 crore by a businessman named G Mahesh. Despite his efforts to reclaim the funds, Bhajji couldn't get the money back from Mahesh which, in turn, has forced him to take legal action against him. View the full article
  2. Companies are now innovating or re-inventing the design of smartphones to pave way for the future. Weâve seen brands make full-display smartphones to devices that fold. However, Xiaomi made a smartphone straight out of a science fiction movie that is wrapped with a display from all sides. The smartphone was first shown off last year and we got to see the smartphone for ourselves this week. © MENSXP/Akshay Bhalla While it may look like a concept device, the smartphone is actually going on sale in China soon and if converted to Indian Rupees, it can cost up to Rs 2.5 lakh. It uses flexible OLED panels just like folding phones, but instead of being a foldable device, it has screens all around it. At first glance, you might think the Mi Mix Alpha is some high-tech device from the movie Minority Report but it actually works as advertised. The #MiMixAlpha is action. Resisted really hard to not pick it up and play around with it. pic.twitter.com/vTpLaZzjEh â Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) January 16, 2020 Xiaomi has termed this technology as âSurround Displayâ and it has a 189.6% screen-to-body ratio. It has almost no bezels at both the top and bottom of the device and has a vertical stripe at the back that houses the primary camera and all the necessary sensors and antennas. Notably, the smartphone does not have a selfie camera as one can simply flip the phone and use the primary camera for taking selfies. The second screen at the back is used as the viewfinder for selfies and will automatically launch once you flip the smartphone. © MENSXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to availability, only around 500 of them exist as of now which is why it also comes with a hefty price tag. Xiaomi is currently evaluating whether the smartphone should be available for Indian customers but we will only know for sure in some time. When it comes to the durability of the smartphone, Xiaomi says it has used a titanium alloy frame for the chassis while the strip at the back has been made with ceramic. Naturally, being an all-screen display, one has to be careful while using it, but Xiaomi has provided a special case for the smartphone to protect it from fall damage. Since the smartphone is all screen, there are no speakers or physical buttons to adjust the settings of the phone. Instead, Xiaomi uses capacitive buttons on the stem of the smartphone to control functions such as increasing/decreasing volume, control other features such as WiFi and other shortcuts that you may want to use on the fly. Since there are no speakers, Xiaomi has embedded an earpiece into the display that also functions as a proximity sensor. In fact, this technology was developed by Sony and the Japanese company calls it âAcoustic Surfaceâ. It is the same technology Sony is currently using for some of their high-end televisions. © Xiaomi When it comes to the specifications, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha comes with a Snapdragon 855+ chipset, 12GB RAM, 512GB of internal storage (UFS 3.0) and a 108MP primary camera. The smartphone also Haas 5G connectivity capabilities and supports power delivery fast charging. Interestingly, when charging the smartphone, the Mi Mix Alpha has a unique animation that converts the entire display to a battery status indicator. It starts with a red-orange hue when it has low charge and goes all the way up to bright green when it reaches full charge. The Mi Mix Alpha is definitely not a smartphone that everyone can afford and is reserved for the affluent. Which is why Xiaomi is considering whether it makes sense to sell the smartphone in India. However, if the brand eventually brings the smartphone to India, expect it to come in very limited quantities and with a hefty price tag. Nonetheless, a beautiful smartphone that is also one out of five hundred is probably worth more than the monetary value to some people. View the full article
  3. OnePlus decided to show up at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year and showcase a new phone. It's a concept phone so don't expect it to be made available for purchase. Called the OnePlus Concept One Phone, the new phone has a lot of interesting things to talk about. It's no secret that the OnePlus Concept One has a camera that magically disappears. Yeah, the marquee feature of the phone is that it uses a new kind of "electrochromic glass" that makes it look as if there's no camera at the back. What it does, is it essentially tints the lenses to make them blend into the body. Here, take a look at this image - © Twitter/ Austin Evans See how it works? It looks a little gimmicky, but that's what we have. It's also worth pointing out that the camera is not entirely invisible. You can still see it from certain angles, but it does a fantastic job of hiding it. But would someone want a disappearing camera, to begin with? Well, the only logical explanation to that is it'll look very slick on a phone that's completely black. The idea behind the concept is to hide and keep the camera discreet. It's purely aesthetics. The OnePlus Concept One is a big bright phone with O range leather. But imagine a phone with a slick glass body. Using this glass will keep the camera discreet, giving it a neat and clean look. So let's just say that the future OnePlus phones will be a treat to look at. With its industry-first disappearing rear camera, the #OnePlusConceptOne is a testament to our untiring passion for challenging convention. Witness the beauty of the unseen at #CES2020, January 7-10. pic.twitter.com/b5I4ma25pE â OnePlus (@oneplus) January 7, 2020 Also, it only takes 0.7 seconds for the electrochromic glass to turn on and off. According to OnePlus, it's the same time it takes to open the camera, so it'll be ready to go as soon as you launch the camera. The way it works is, the camera remains hidden when it's not in use, and it automatically shows up when you fire it up. What's interesting is that OnePlus says the glass can also be used as an ND filter, which is an absolute treat for photographers. So that's the only thing which makes the electrochromic glass useful beyond just aesthetics. There's an option in the camera software to enable it, which is very neat. © Twitter/ David Immel The OnePlus Concept One, as you can see, has leather. It's the Papaya Orange color, the same one which we're used to seeing from the McLaren edition OnePlus phones. OnePlus says it's the same leather that's being used in McLaren cars for the seat covers. Internally, the OnePlus Concept One has the same internals as the OnePlus 7T Pro. It sports a 6.7-inch 90Hz AMOLED panel, is powered by Snapdragon 855+ processor with 12GB of RAM and 4,085 mAh battery. It has the same curved glass and metal sides. It looks pretty slick but it's sad that we won't be able to buy it, at least not anytime soon. We don't know if OnePlus is planning on implementing this tech in its next phone, but we're super excited to see what the brand comes up with. View the full article

  5. In a mother’s womb were two babies. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.” “Nonsense,” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?” The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.” The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.” The second insisted, “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.” The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover, if there is life, then why has no one ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery, there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.” “Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.” The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?” The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her, this world would not and could not exist.” Said the first: “Well I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.” To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and listen, you can perceive Her presence, and you can hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.” Maybe this was one of the best explanations of the concept of GOD.
  6. Last year, Vivo showed off the Vivo APEX 2018 concept and it featured a pop-up sliding camera and thinnest possible bezels. Back then, everyone was excited to see the concept materialize and surprisingly the brand managed to mass produce it within six months. The finished product was called the Vivo NEX. © Vivo Now after a year, Vivo has unveiled the APEX 2019 concept and it is even more amusing. Just today we saw Meizu's Zero that is completely holeless. The APE 2019 concept follows a similar line, but with more practicality. To start with, the phone has no buttons and completely relies on Touch Sense technology, it brings together capacitive touch and pressure-sensing. The software has been optimized to detect pressure or squeezing on the frame and can determine the pressure points location. Secondly, the usual USB port has been replaced by a MagPort. It is a magnetic power connector that enables both charging and data transfer and doesn't require a socket. Even the usual earpiece or speakers are gone and replaced by Body SoundCasting technology that turns the complete display into a speaker. © Vivo Last year we witnessed the mainstream adoption of the in-display fingerprint scanner. But, the scanner was limited to a specific area on the screen. With the APEX 2019 concept, Vivo is enabling the complete display to act as a scanner. This enables users to touch almost anywhere on the screen to unlock the device. Also, when you touch the display to unlock, the nearby screen pixels will light up for a faster and more accurate authentication. Lastly, the concept has 5G support thanks to the brand new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 platform. The phone shall come up with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory. Vivo is also bundling along its Jovi AI Assistant. This will be the company's first phone to run 5G. © Vivo Why did Vivo decide to remove many of the usual components like the USB port, buttons, and more? To make up space for the 5G modules. It also incorporates a Duplex PCB design to make 20 percent more space. The company has already announced it will be at MWC 2019 and visitors shall get a chance to experience the device first-hand. For now, this is a concept and there is no word on mass availability. Given Vivo's 2018 timelines, we expect the phone to be ready by the end of 2019 though.
  7. Last year, Samsung gave us a sneak peek at its upcoming foldable phone and everyone has been excited about the future of smartphones. We've already heard LG and Huawei working on similar technology and now Xiaomi is joining the battle as well. The company's president, Lin Bin, has now confirmed that the company is indeed working on a "double folding smartphone", and has shared a video showing it in action. Both sides of the phone can be folded back to transform it from a tablet into a more compact phone. We're confident the video shows a prototype in action since creases are easily visible. Considering the new form factor transformation, the device will be running an optimized version of MIUI that will instantly convert the UI for a seamless experience. The video shows the device can quickly change into a compact phone and sports glossy finish. Xiaomi's president revealed that they have employed a four-wheel drive foldable shaft technology and a foldable display to achieve the form factor. This may make this device the first one to sport a double folding mechanism. © Xiaomi The prototype visible in the video demonstrates only the folding functionality of the device and all other specifications remain unknown. In fact, there are no cameras or sensors visible on the prototype. The power button is located on the top, for now. The most important part of the video is how quickly the UI transforms to accommodate a new form factor. If any brand wants success with this concept, a seamless transition in the UI has to be a top priority. © YouTube / Samsung's Prototype One question continues to remain unanswered though, when will we see these prototypes production ready? Recent reports have indicated Samsung will be releasing a foldable phone by the end of this year. We expect Xiaomi too have a similar roadmap as well, considering they want to directly take on the South Korean giant. As far as prices are concerned, we've also heard that these devices are going to be extremely costly in the beginning. MWC 2019 is just a month away now and we look forward to seeing more of this in action there.
  8. With many companies already flirting with the idea of developing self-driving/ self-flying cars, Aston Martin is the latest luxury car maker who has expressed interest in the concept. The company unveiled its plans to create a personal autonomous flying vehicle and bestowed the name “Volante Vision Concept.” © Aston Martin The concept car's design will probably get debuted at the Farnborough Air Show later this month and we can't wait to see it in real life. Much like other flying cars/vehicles, the Volante Vision will take off and land vertically. It will have a hybrid-electric powertrain and will be outfitted with multiple propellers. It will have a have a horizontal turbo-pop at the back and two pairs of propellers at the front so that the vehicle can tilt and rotate. © Aston Martin Aston Martin, as a company, is known for its supercars and luxury, and we can expect the company to incorporate some of those luxurious features into the Volante Vision. The flying vehicle will have autonomous navigation and every information will be displayed onto the glass cockpit. The Volante Vision will be crafted to serve the company's existing clientele, that is in search of a flying car with a luxurious touch. © Aston Martin The company is working with partners on the concept car with aviation experts, including Rolls-Royce. It seems like as each day passes, more and more companies are exploring and showing interest in the air taxi market. We can only know more about Volante Vision once Aston Martin makes more information available after its debut later this month. Source: Digital Trends
  9. If you are looking to lose weight, I am pretty sure you must have come across some random article over the internet by a self proclaimed guru, asking you to cut out all the carbohydrates from your diet. They also go on claiming that carbs are the food of satan and root cause of the obesity epidemic. When it comes to obesity and fat loss in particular, low-carb zealots blame insulin to be the main culprit and always point to the “carbohydrate-insulin hypothesis" to validate their argument, which to be honest, is absolute BS. How? I'll explain that. © Thinkstock/Getty Images What Is Insulin In order to understand what carbohydrate-insulin hypothesis is, let's have a look at what insulin is. Carbohydrates, when eaten, are broken down into glucose which enters your bloodstream. This rise in glucose levels in your blood is sensed by an organ in your body named pancreas and it secretes a hormone called insulin. Insulin then acts as a gatekeeper and shuttles the glucose (broken down carbohydrates) to the liver, muscle tissue and fat cells from the blood to get the blood glucose levels back to normal again. When insulin spikes, body's fat burning ability goes down and “storage mode” is turned on. When blood sugar levels go down, insulin levels drop simultaneously with it. This elevation and then going down of insulin levels happens every time you eat a meal. The Carbohydrate-Insulin Hypothesis High carbohydrate meal/diet results in higher insulin levels, which results in increased fat storage because of decreased lipolysis (fat burning) which in turn results in increased body fat. This is the logic low carbers/ketoers use to validate their arguments. According to them, a low carbohydrate diet will secrete less insulin which will lead to decreased Lipogenesis (fat storage) i.e. decreased body fat. Their Logic Is Flawed © Thinkstock/Getty Images However, this logic is flawed. Even protein increases insulin secretion as well. In fact, some studies have shown that protein can spike insulin even more than simple carbohydrates, especially dairy protein (due to higher leucine concentration). So following this hypothesis, protein should be fattening as well. Also, your body does not need elevated insulin levels to store fat. Insulin has the effect of suppressing Hormone sensitive lipase (HSL), which means the body is unable to burn body fat. However, fat also suppresses HSL, even when insulin levels are low. Let's try to understand how insulin works with a simplified explanation. How Insulin ACTUALLY Works Essentially, insulin acts as the "signal" to store the incoming energy. Think of it as cars arriving at a parking lot to be parked, with the cars representing the incoming and outgoing energy i.e. food (calories) which is to be stored as fat, and the valets representing insulin. Even if there are more valets present, the number of cars in the parking lot won't increase, unless the incoming cars are more than the cars leaving the parking lot. In the same way, if your maintenance is 2500 calories and you eat 2000 calories, any amount of insulin won't be able to increase the body's fat stores because there's no energy to store in the first place. Calories in vs out is what drives weight loss or gain, not insulin. Now eat some cookies!

  10. As Mobile World Congress is starting to ramp up, a small trend has started to pop up. The concept phone is called Apex FullView, and its headline feature is what Vivo describes as “Half-Screen In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology.” The idea here is that instead of placing your finger on a thumbnail-sized icon to unlock the phone, you'll be able to do so in a much larger area of the display. © Vivo The technology basically means a large part of the screen is converted into a fingerprint scanner. Almost 30-35 percent of the screen is converted into a fingerprint sensor, making it easy for everyone to unlock the phone quickly. Companies have made a lot of compromises when it comes to a fingerprint scanner, Samsung kept it at a very awkward place in the S8 while Apple completely skipped it in the iPhone X to maintain aesthetics. This new technology can simply overcome this challenge and make everyone's life a lot easier. It features the world's highest screen-to-body ratio, as well as a revamped take on the in-screen fingerprint sensor Vivo showed off earlier in the year. The top / left / right bezels measure just 1.8mm, and the bottom bezel comes in at just 4.3mm -- all industry bests by far. © Vivo The iPhone X's screen-to-body ratio is 82%. Xiaomi's Mi Mix 2 comes in at 83%. The Vivo Apex? 95%. Even though the iPhone X, Essential Phone, or even the trendsetting Xiaomi Mi Mix have been called "bezel-less," they are not quite really that. The Mi Mix and its sequel have sizable bottom bezels. The Essential Phone and the iPhone X each have a noticeable notch that cuts into the display at the top. © YouTube/CNET This is exactly why the Vivo Apex Concept has us even more excited. Vivo has given the Apex a hidden front-firing camera that pops up when needed from the top. According to Vivo, the camera can slide out and is ready to snap a photo in less than a second. When it does pop out, it protrudes out of the top like a wide popped stylus. Otherwise, it's a normal 8-megapixel camera. Although Vivo has incorporated all these technologies into a concept phone, the company hasn't made any announcement on whether the phone will be commercially produced.
  11. 2017 has been a very creative year for automobile makers and there are one too many concepts cars that have set multitudes of pulses racing for what the future has is in store for the automotive sphere. Spectacular design language is a stepping stone for any new concept and we were left stunned by endless glass roofs and dangerously low floors. The future is riding high on electric powertrains and that's clear from the number of EV entrants this year. We made a list of 12 of the most impressive concepts revealed this year and we are shaking with exquisite agony in anticipation for their production! 1. Audi Elaine Autonomous driving: Yes Powertrain: Electric Car type: SUV © Audi The Elaine is unique not only because it looks like a million bucks on wheels but also because it is intelligent, you can thank Artificial Intelligence for that. The SUV offers fully autonomous driving, can self-park and travel nearly 500km on one charge. We can't get over the alloys, though! 2. Audi Aicon Autonomous driving: Yes Powertrain: Electric Car type: Sedan © Audi Based on the "inverted hexagonal Singleframe" design, the Aicon is another one of Audi's beautiful concepts powered by AI. The most striking feature of the car is its front and tail lights made up of "more than 600 3D pixels". Everything about the Aicon is brilliant from its glass roof to its suicide doors leading to plush interiors and the haptic-manual layer, voice control and eye tracking methods of engaging with the car. 3. BMW X7 Autonomous driving: No Powertrain: Plug-in Hybrid Car type: SUV If Rolls Royce manufactured an SUV, that's what it would look like and it isn't really shocking because design sensibilities often intermingle among partner brands. The X7 is luxurious inside out, starting from its massive radiator grille to its glass roof, ending all the way up to its rear. The car will be released in diesel and petrol variants with the power of 445 ponies. 4. BMW iVision Dynamics Gran Coupe Autonomous driving: No Powertrain: Electric Car type: Sedan © Bimmerpost The kind of sedan you'll be sitting in with your future kids wearing flashy kimono-esque jumpsuits, that's what the vision the iVision Gran Coupe fills in your head the moment you see it. Rumour has it that the iVision is a Tesla fighting machine, but how it fares in the future EV market can't be ascertained any time soon. For now we'll settle for drooling over its glaring good looks. 5. BMW Z4 Autonomous driving: No Powertrain: ICE Car type: 2 Door Roadster © BMW Blog Energetic Orange isn't the only refreshing thing about this Beemer concept, but it would be prudent to say that the Bavarian automobile maker has laid much emphasis on the design of the roadster calling it "total freedom on four wheels". The vehicle will be launched in four and six cylinder 2 litre ICE variants and there is also a possibility of a hybrid coming up in the future. 6. Honda Urban EV Autonomous driving: No Powertrain: Electric Car type: Hatchback © Honda They meant Urban cutie, Honda has got this EV right and it's absolute love at first sight material. Much at par with the Beetle, Fiat 500 and Mini, the Urban is definitely one of the best hatchbacks we've seen. The LED display on its nose is agreeably the most striking feature of the car. 7. Kia Proceed Autonomous driving: No Powertrain: Electric Car type: Extended Hatchback © Kia Bathed in Lava Red, the Proceed looks nothing less than a chariot of the gods and it made a lot of enthusiasts swoon because of its shooting brake design. We can see why! 8. Lexus LC 500 Inspired by Black Panther Autonomous driving: Yes Powertrain: Electric powered by Vibranium Car type: 2 Door Coupe © Pautan The pulsating underglow and self healing mechanism of this Lexus is what makes it one of the best concept cars we've come across this year. This vibranium bred LC 500 can even symbiotically integrate with the driver for a super emotive driving experience. 9. Mazda Vision Coupe Autonomous driving: Yes Powertrain: - Car type: Sedan © Mazda The Vision Coupe is very much in the league of luxury with its elongated bodywork, minimal lines and clean, vintage wood-veneer interiors. Don't kill us for stereotyping but it looks nothing like a Japanese make, on the contrary, it looks like it came out of the Queen's automotive workshop. 10. MINI Electric Concept Autonomous driving: Yes Powertrain: Electric Car type: Hatchback © Mini Mr. Bean's whip in a brand new avatar, the Mini Electric is easy to love and easier on the environment. The design is true to the Mini signature but futuristic enough to last in the market for years to come. Let's just say it'll be another classic in a few decades from its date of launch. 11. Renault Symbioz Autonomous driving: Yes Powertrain: Electric Car type: Hatchback © Renault Symbioz isn't a just a car, it's an extension of your preferred habitat. Sitting in the Symboiz is like sitting in your safe place, your sanctuary, the zone where you're at your best. Who would've thought a car could bring out an emotive experience this strong? 12. Lamborghini Terzo Millennio Autonomous driving: Yes Powertrain: Electric Car type: 2 door Coupe © Lamborghini Top Class. The one concept that scores 10 on 10 in aesthetics as well as function. A lot of fingers were pointed at its outlandish nature but we're sure MIT and Lamborghini will work together to bring the production variant as close to the concept as possible. We want to watch the car self-heal!
  12. We all have seen the iPhone X and how it has changed, in terms of design. This is the first time Apple has restructured the design after four generations of iPhones and we kind of expect the same design to translate into other products. The iPhone X has a unique and beautiful edge-to-edge display and someone asked the same question as we did — how would the iPad look like with the same design? © Martin Hajek Concept artist Martin Hajek gave the iPad the iPhone X treatment and in our opinion, it looks incredibly awesome. The iPad concept has the same bezel-less design and also has the same notch for the Face ID feature. “I present – the iPad X – same form factor as the iPad Pro 12.9″ but with a much bigger screen,” Hajek said. “Oh, and it also has a notch,” he adds, with sarcasm. “Sorry.” Check out some of the concept images below: © Martin Hajek © Martin Hajek © Martin Hajek If the next iPad adopts the same design language as the iPhone X, we aren't entirely sure whether it will be called “iPad X”. The design looks very appealing and would make sense that it used the same TrueDepth technology as the iPhone X. Previous iPads have taken inspiration from previous iPhones and adopted the same design ethos, and we can certainly expect Apple to do the same with the next generation of iPads. © Martin Hajek Recent reports have pointed out that Apple will bring a design overhaul to the iPad lineup next year. Rumours suggest that the iPad X will ditch the “Home” button as well and would look very much like the iPhone X. Martin Hajek's iPad X concept looks beautiful and might just translate into the final design. What do you think of the design and would you buy a tablet with a bezel-less design?
  13. The most relevant question that swings like a pendulum from time to time for men is- whether or not women like 'the chase'? Well, to begin with, what is 'the chase'? According to Oxford dictionary, 'the chase' is defined 'as an act of persuasion in order to catch or catch up with'. So when you contextually use the concept of the chase in order to get the woman you want, it becomes a challenge and a game of sorts. Let's face it men, you all love the chase in the beginning. The constant fervour of keeping up with the challenge of getting the woman you have set your eyes on and playing ten rounds of 'catch and duck' to keep up with the game is quite exciting, isn't it? Man has always been a competitive animal, since time immemorial. If it wasn't a woman, it was hunting and chasing the perfect meat, in pre-historic times. Now, because we can buy our own food, fending for the perfect mate is more epitomic for a man than anything else. But again, the question is, do women like the chase men so willingly indulge in? The right answer is-hell, yes! Let's get a little deeper into the psyche of a woman, shall we? © Thinkstock Women usually love the attention bestowed upon them from a prospective male companion. The art of persuasion is something they expect out of the men they're attracted to and they probably know the man persuading them won't give up, unless she wants him to. But let's settle on the odds first? A woman would never want a man she isn't attracted to, to chase her. She will make her intentions very clear if she is not interested in you and you'll probably annoy her if you continue to do so. The signs aren't very subtle if a woman wants you to chase her around the yard and finally give her the ultimate attention you can conjure. Here are some classic tell tale signs: · She will never show signs of annoyance even if you act creepy and stalkerish · She will definitely pretend to not show interest but her body language will tell you if she's into you · She will make plans with you, even if it means cancelling prior invitations. A girl who wants you off her back will never even encourage a coffee date · She will reply to your messages quickly · She will make an effort to dress up for you · She will act mysterious from time to time to keep up with the chase game (just so you don't give up!) · She will play hard to get (because, why not?) © Thinkstock Yes, we know in a perfect world it would have been a lot easier if women would just straightforwardly respond to your advances but then in a perfect world, you'd hate the chase too, wouldn't you?. If you really like persuading the woman of your dreams then you have to definitely make her feel attracted to you first. That's the only remedy the whole concept of the chase depends on. Once she sees you as someone she is quite attractive to, she will play the game with you, until the two of you finally give up. So, what can you do to make yourself more attractive? · An ambitious dedicated man really attracts a woman. Women are usually not attracted to fat bank accounts. They look for passion and ambition in a man and the capacity and ability to be stable · A sense of humour goes a long way. You know that! · Although women have an independent streak and are strong enough to handle themselves, they still look for an ounce of dominance in a man. They look out for a man who can take care of them regardless, mentally and physically and emotionally · Sexual attractiveness has to be prevalent for a woman to be attracted to you. · Eloquence is a mastered trait. In order to handle anything, a man should know how to talk his way through situations. Women love that. · Emotional intelligence is a must. No arguments there. Once you have these areas covered, with the woman you're chasing, not only will she enjoy the chase, she'll prolong it, just to tease you, for the thrill of it! © Thinkstock Unlike the movies, women don't really go for loserish lovers. What we mean is, life's not a movie, where you're chasing the wrong woman, the one who isn't interested in you and you hope to win her over one day by being overly persuasive. You follow her around like a lost puppy and stalk her till she gives in and sees the love you have for her. Bollocks! Women hate that, we'll have you know. It's borderline psychotic and creepy. If she's not responding to the chase like she's supposed to, then move on. © Thinkstock Intelligent women don't lead a guy they're not interested in, on. So quit begging her for a chance and enjoy the real chase instead. Not the desperate chase, for a disinterested woman. If you find the right kinda woman to chase, she'll definitely want you back because both of you will definitely be abiding by the laws of attraction.
  14. Leave it to UAE to make a highly elevated version of anything, be it underwater hotel suites, or indoor ski resorts, and obviously huge skyscrapers. Next on their agenda is the biggest of them all – a Mars colony simulation. This news of a Mars Colony comes months after UAE's announcement of an ambitious project called the Mars 2117 Strategy, which aims to create an elaborate city on the Red Planet by 2117. Looks like Elon Musk isn't the only contender in the race to get to the red planet, UAE is stepping it up and giving major competition to Musk. © Dubai Media Office The government of Dubai has released some concept art of the planned city that will work out as sort of a practice run for the future Martian settlement, and it looks really cool and something straight out of a sci-fi movie. The proposed city – called the Mars Science City – will reportedly span 1.9 million square feet and could cost $135 million dollars to build. The city will include “laboratories for food, energy and water,” along with an experimental region where teams can prepare for the harsh conditions on Mars, according to a press release. Moreover, there will also be a space-themed museum with 3D-printed walls from the Emirati desert. © Dubai Media Office Scientists want to get a “viable and realistic” taste of what human colonization on the Red Planet will be like with this huge Martian mini-city. But, as of now the timeline for the Mars Science City is a little unclear. The concept pictures are obviously incredible, but a lot of work will go into bringing that too life – on Earth or Mars. Currently, the Middle Eastern nation plans to send its first unmanned probe to Mars in 2020. © Dubai Media Office Well, who knew a barren wasteland like Mars could look this good?
  15. There are some brilliant minds out there burning midnight oil creating car concepts that would break records on race tracks or make driving enthusiasts happy on roads. There are always a few makes, however, that don't make it to the finishing line in the race to production. We shortlisted 8 such cars that could've set fire to race tracks and roads with their looks and specs, but never did and just faded away like vivid, almost-there morning dreams. 1. Cadillac Cien If you live vicariously through your TV screen while gaming, you've probably seen and experienced the wow of the 2002 Cadillac Cien in GT 4 and Midnight Club, and you know it's nothing short of a spy car with its night vision, slick aerodynamic bodywork and super speeds produced by its V12 engine pumping 750hp. It is unreal, to the point that it never made it to the road except in the movies 'The Island' and 'Transformers: Age Of Extinction'. © Wiki Commons 2. Chrysler ME Four-Twelve Would you believe us if we told you this concept first debuted at a car show 13 years ago? Its design can give several contemporary production vehicle designs a run for their money. Beautifully sculpted carbon fibre body work and a V12 engine with 850hp taking it from 0-100km in 2.9 seconds, a record that modern day production cars are fighting for, together make the Chrysler ME Four-Twelve a very desirable vehicle to this day. Too bad that nothing but a singular prototype of the ME Four-Twelve made it to the Laguna Seca racetrack before vanishing altogether. 3. Ford GT90 This ivory beauty debuted in 1995, 22 years ago, whaaaat? Yup, Ford definitely likes to think way ahead of time, their snazzy design game is futuristic as ****-- it's like walking into an Anime reality dimension set eons in the future. This GT90 featured a 6 litre quad-turbocharged V12 engine that could push out 720hp and attain a speed of 410kmph, back in the 90's! While it didn't make it to production, it did give virtual speed junkies a thrill in games like GT, Need For Speed, Ford Racing and Rush. 4. Jaguar B99 Many luxury car loving hearts were broken when Jaguar declined the prospect of turning its classy B99 concept to production. The model that was first introduced to the public in 2011 featured a great mix of design and speed with its wine coloured body work and chrome accents, encasing a hybrid drivetrain. © Wikipedia 5. Jaguar's C-X75 You obviously remember the Aston Martin DB10 chase from 'Spectre'. You probably also know that Bond was being chased in a Jaguar. What you may or may not know is that he was being chased in the Jaguar C-X75, a prototype of a vehicle the makers claim is "the most technologically advanced road car ever conceived". Said to have hybrid powertrain that could pump nearly 1000hp, the edgy coupe would've been Jaguar's master piece hyper car, if only. 6. Lamborghini Asterion Another hyper car that would've done the world a favour if it existed, but didn't. The Lamborghini Asterion first came to be known in 2014, and not just as a hyper car but as Lamborghini's first. At 898hp being churned out by a hybrid powertrain, the Asterion was a powerful automobile and quite a looker. The vehicle never made it production so that the Urus could. 7. Lotus Esprit 2014 The world waited with bated breath for the Lotus 2014 concept to become a reality only to be told that the carbon fibre beast had been dropped from production on account of being a lightweight car. Aside from its glorious aerodynamic design and a dreamy seamless skylight roof, the vehicle housed a 5 litre V8 engine pushing out 611hp and a top speed of 270kmph © Wikipedia 8. Mazda Furai Light on its wheels the Furai track car prototype would've made a fantastic production car if only it hadn't gone down in flames while road testing at Le Mans, one fateful day in 2008. It's curvilinear body and 460hp generating engine made it a fabulous track car. Ironic that it saw its demise on the tracks. © Wikipedia
  16. It is not news that automobile makers are getting thoroughly prepped to join the electric vehicle (EV) race, but that one of the world's most beloved cars has also been testing its strength in electric waters, will surely come forth as a pleasant surprise. © Twitter We're telling you that Mini is now in the final stages of becoming a part of the growing EV domain and will be up for production by 2019. Ahead of it's unveiling at the Frankfort Motor Show, Mini has revealed shots of its all-electric concept, a successor to the already existing hybrid Mini E, and trust us when we say this, the new green Mini is a delightful sight for the eyes and we expect it to be enthralling drive. © Mini Website Going by the moniker, Mini Electric Concept, this all-electric vehicle boasts of the iconic Mini design; three-door hatchback with a floating roof and round headlamps with metal trim, and it brings in fresh features like cross-shaped alloys, LED taillights seamlessly integrated door handles, a closed-ish grille with a circular insignia placed aesthetically toward the right and what looks like hints of vents behind the front wheel arches. The entirety of the EV in grey is contrasted with yellow accents that make it a love-at-first-sight vehicle. © Mini Website Mini hasn't put light on the power specs of the Mini Electric Concept, but we can be sure they'll do a good job at it because this won't their first time with a purely EV powertrain. In 2008, Mini came out with 600 test vehicles for the what is today known as the BMW i3 powertrain. Since the BMW i3 has done well for itself, we can only expect a vastly improved powertrain to fuel this vehicle. © Instagram/Mini The price of the EV also hasn't been announced yet, either, but like most luxury EV's, it is expected to have baffling price tag. Only a couple of days before we get the full download on what this baby can do. In the meantime, you can take a look at the teaser and tell us how you feel about the new electric Mini.
  17. We're a generation that likes to do things differently and try new things out at the drop of a hat. If things don't change then we dread the monotony and try and break it as much as we can. A lot of facets that affect us positively also tend to seem dull at a point in time and we look for newer things in life to try, that's a given. But not all things should be changed because sometimes absurd results are achieved and they just don't make sense. Yoga for instance! Yoga is an age old practice and since its origin it's been considered as a soulful body flow, which enhances physiological functionality, beautifully. Off late though, yoga has been going through different variations and the trend is changing to make it more suitable to our lifestyle. © Lonely Planet Today we have hot yoga, power yoga, aqua yoga, stoned yoga, aerial yoga and …hold your breath, ladies and gentlemen - we have beer yoga! Seriously, beer yoga? Isn't that the most absurd thing you've ever heard of? We're all in for non-conformists lifestyles and trying things no one has before but when things go against an idea or a way of being its just wrong on so many levels! FYI, Beer Yoga is essentially sipping a cold beer while doing your practice. To start with, alcohol and yoga should never be put together. It's the unhealthiest concept ever to exist. Yoga is a thorough mind and soul experience that opens your body up with every pose you do. The first rule a yogi or yogini should adhere to is to always practice on an empty stomach. If there is food inside your system when you're practicing your positions, it can hamper the session. If there is food in your digestive system, it can cause nausea, heaviness, bloating and gas. Imagine if you have beer in your stomach! Beer contains stimulants that work with gastric acid, causing heaviness and gas and in some cases heartburn. That's because you're putting your body through a full fledged workout, and there is already an adrenaline rush you're experiencing. Beer too, like any other alcohol gives one a rush of blood. Hence, combining the two is a terrible idea. Always practice on an empty stomach or two-three hours after a meal. © Business Insider If you're practicing yoga to lose weight then doing it with beer is the worst idea ever! Beer contains fewer amounts of nutrients and comes loaded with calories. It might obstruct your practice by not allowing you to burn any calories whatsoever. The alcohol in beer is converted to acetate by the liver and that later converts to fat. So come to think of it, it's the most counter-productive practice to adopt. Good time to bust this myth eh? The most crucial downside of beer yoga is beer affecting your breath work during yoga. Breath work, also known as pranayama is supposed to cleanse and purify the blood and the respiratory system. But when you do yoga with beer, you're really not cleansing your blood or anything at all; you're literally putting alcohol into your system. It's strange and ironic because isn't yoga all about working on your body with mental and physical alertness? While drinking beer, you're intoxicating yourself, which breaks concentration towards the body leaving you with just putting your mind to either stopping yourself from burping or keeping yourself balanced during practice! © Pexels Why is this form of yoga so popular? Well, TBH it's a beautiful marketing gimmick. Beer yoga originated in Berlin (‘cos, beer is Germany's staple diet), by the yoga hippies there. Because yoga sells like hot cakes all over the world, it's being packaged in every way possible and sold to people who fancy the whole idea. As we see different propagators of beer yoga around us, we feel the entire concept of yoga is going down the drain. The gurus who spread the idea of yoga also believed that yoga is a union of your mind, body and soul and because of this unification we get the best benefits of yoga. Imagine pairing that with something as harmful as alcohol! If this isn't the best marketing gimmick, then what is? We really cannot stress on how insulting beer yoga is to the pureness and sanctity of yoga. We mean, no one really judges anyone on how much beer you consume just as long as you do it separately and away from your practice! There is disciplinedriven in to everything we follow. Even if it's spending time with your own body and trying to reach a certain level of consciousness, it should be done away from any commercial aspects and worldly vices. Holding a cold brew in your hand while sitting in a padmasana just sounds so wrong! So next time you get lured in to one of those beer yoga sessions, think long and hard about what you're doing. © love Karma Passion Unless balancing an ‘empty' beer bottle on your head while you're in a tree pose is an achievement of absolute focus for you, beer yoga really doesn't make sense!
  18. In today's world, innovation is everything. You could release something new every year, but unless you've made significant changes to your product, no one is going to buy it. But sometimes, it's about more than sales. NASA certainly isn't interested in the sales numbers for the Mars Rover. IT'S NOT FOR SALE! Does that mean they're going to sit back and rely on the boring old Mars Rover they use right now? We think not! Say hello to the latest Mars Rover Concept which was just unveiled as a part of the "Summer of Mars" campaign by NASA. After today's reveal, #KennedySpaceCenter Mars Rover Concept Vehicle on display thru July 4. #JoinTheJourney pic.twitter.com/ZWDdwR74m6 — KSC Visitor Complex (@ExploreSpaceKSC) June 5, 2017 This mean machine is the future of travel on Mars. The car runs on an electric motor which is powered by solar panels and has a 700-volt battery. It has GPS and can seat up to four people at a time. It even has a laboratory for experiments in the back. © Twitter/Greg Pallone Now, aren't these the slickest wheels you've ever seen? © Twitter/Greg Pallone It was designed by the Parker Brothers with inputs from NASA astronauts. You'll probably recognise some of their other designs like the TRON bike from 'Tron: Legacy' and the tumbler from 'The Dark Knight.' Yeah, come to think of it, this looks an awful lot like the Batmobile from ‘The Dark Knight’, doesn't it? © Twitter/NASA Kennedy KSC © Warner Bros-The Dark Knight Unfortunately, this vehicle is not going to be used for any trips to Mars. It's more of an educational concept to help encourage the exploration of Mars in the future. Let's hope it's auctioned off by NASA at some point, and we have enough cash to buy it. How awesome would it be if we rolled up for the next distant cousins wedding in this? Check out the full reveal:
  19. The sacred month of Ramazan is not only sacred for Muslims but is also respected by people from other religions as well. Recently in a video message, the Fast and Furious actor Vin Diesel expressed his feelings about the holy month. Vin Diesel said, ?the concept of Ramazan is so powerful. Probably, be good for anybody in life to be able to experience that kind of discipline for that long could be really recharging and rehealing.? Diesel appeared in the video with Karim Kharbouch, who is better known by his stage name French Montana. Diesel said that he is proud that his 'brother' is going to be fasting in Ramazan, adding that, "I might be influenced." Meanwhile, French Montana said that he is trying to get his brother (Vin Diesel) to do join him during Ramazan.
  20. I am not trying to stir the pot here but this article will have a lot of people and chubby dieticians up in arms. The concept of ‘clean eating’ is getting out of hands and it needs to be addressed. People are supposedly ‘eating clean’ but are still not getting any thinner. What’s worsened the case is the fact that dieticians who know really zilch about nutrition have made a business out of selling this vague idea of ‘eating clean’ to sell their products. Read on and let me guide you out of this illusion and into the science of logic-based fat loss. The ‘Unclear’ Idea Of Clean Foods That People Have Anything that comes out of a fast food chain is not ‘clean food’. Yup, that’s it. Everything else is clean. A specific fruit, oats, homemade food vegetables and etcetera, the list goes on. These are automatically, without any logic, categorized as clean foods. But why do people think like this about certain foods? That’s because they have been made to believe that certain foods can make them gain weight and eating certain will aid in fat loss. Well, that’s idiocy and very cunning marketing at best. Alright, next time you see a food item, remember these two things. 1) There’s NO research-backed evidence that a certain type of food will cause fat gain. 2) There’s NO research-backed evidence that a certain type of food will cause fat loss. 3) Repeat the above two again and again. It’s the calorie (energy balance), not the type of food, that determines your fat gain or fat loss. © Thinkstock/Getty Images What The Hell Do You Mean? I Lost Weight When I Stopped Eating Junk Food And Replaced It With ‘Clean Food’ I see this happening a lot. People replace junk food with home-cooked food or fruits and vegetables and witness fat loss. All this while they keep cursing the pizza and can’t gloat enough about how eating fruits made them lose weight. Let me make this clear- it was not the pizza that you were eating that made you fat. It was the consumption of excess calories. You experienced weight loss because you replaced a serving of pizza that had approximately 1000 calories with a serving or fruits, that’s barely 500 calories. There, that 500-calorie deficit made you lose weight. The food items—pizza and fruits, in this example, are not determining your fat loss, the difference in calories coming from them is. Keep these things in mind: 1) The law of thermodynamic: It’s all about the calories (energy) balance that you create. © Thinkstock/Getty Images · Calories In > Calories out = Fat Gain · Calories In < Calories out = Fat Loss 2) No food will ever make you lose weight if you are always in a caloric surplus. Hence, stop looking for one. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3) So-called clean foods will still make you fat if you overeat them. Yes, chicken, potatoes, oats which are considered clean foods can still make you fat if you consume them too much. 4) A food can be considered unclean is only if it’s messing with your body’s normal functioning or is making you more vulnerable to some diseases. © fitnflexed So You Mean I Can Eat What I Want And Still Lose Fat? (Lol, You Are Lying!) Yes, surely you can, if you primary goal is just fat loss. The trick is to hit your daily caloric needs. Get your BMR, the amount of calories your body burns to maintain your current weight and start from creating no more than 10-15% deficit from there. For example, if your BMR is 2000 calories, hit 1800 calories for the first week and see how it goes. Don’t get excited and cut 500 calories right away. It will be counterproductive. Diets like IIFYM are a huge hit for the very same reason. There you go, that’s the very fundamental of fat loss.
  21. There was a patent filed by Apple recently which showed a “Function Bar” that is allegedly going to replace the iconic home button on the upcoming iPhone this year. We all assume it is the iPhone 8, and a concept design, AlHasan Husni has created renditions of how the iPhone 8’s Function bar will work. © AlHasan Husni According to the renditions, the iPhone 8 will unlock the phone faster than before and it will also add swipe functions at the bottom of the screen to use certain features. © AlHasan Husni A user will be able to swipe right on the Function bar to utilise multi-tasking features and swipe up could bring up the control center like we do today. To unlock the phone, the user can tap anywhere on the function area as there will be a fingerprint sensor/Touch ID behind the display. This would also remove the need for the home button and make the iPhone 8 the first Apple smartphone to have slimmer bezels. © AlHasan Husni The other feature the concept includes is a possibility of a new Dark Mode that might be coming in an iOS 11 update. This new Dark Mode will help users read text on the phone better in low-light environments and also help conserve battery life.
  22. We’re here at Microsoft India’s annual event ‘Future Decoded’ where the key focus is on digital transformation and artificial intelligence, and one of Microsoft’s future project involves’ Tata’s concept car the ‘C-Cube’. Amongst various advances in technology Microsoft is currently showcasing in Mumbai, the C-Cube is part of the ‘Product Transformation’ theme. Tata Motors and Microsoft showcased an advanced framework where artificial intelligence can be an integral part of a car and Tata Motors will be the company in India, which will enable the partnership to bring forth innovative products in the near future. © BCCL Tata Motors announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft recently where the two companies will be working hand in hand and develop advanced connected automobiles and digital ecosystems which will make it easier for drivers to stay connected on the go. Powered by Cortana, the AI framework will enable drivers to control basic car features remotely and multi-task while driving without ever having touch a phone or any device for that matter. © BCCL Tata Motors will be the first Indian car manufacturer which will utilise Microsoft’s connected vehicle technologies and bring together advanced machine learning, artificial intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities. This ecosystem will be powered by Microsoft’s Azure cloud while bringing together the digital and the physical worlds. This in turn can be used to create a smarter and safer driving experience for a vehicle owner. As of now, there is no word when this feature and the connected car will hit the road, however, it seems like it will be available in cars in the not too distant future.
  23. Back in the day when smartphones weren’t even introduced, Nokia was one company that set the market on fire with its durable and reliable handsets. Ask any 90s kid and most of them would say that their first mobile phone was Nokia. People used to vouch for it and thanks to the good reputation that the company has created over the years, we still look forward to what’s in store for us. And now that the company is all set to launch its flagship smartphone, Nokia P1, people have already started having high hopes and looking forward to what’s in store for us. © YouTube Reportedly, the leading mobile phone manufacturer, which is now promoted by HMD Global, is going to launch new smartphones on February 27 at the Mobile World Congress 2017. However, right before the launch, a video has been released by a YouTube channel called Concept Creator that shows how the Nokia P1 might look like. According to this video, the phone comes with a metal frame and glass on both the sides without bezels. It is said to have a Carl Zeiss lens-inbuilt camera, 3.5 mm headphone jack, USB Type-C charging port and dual stereo speakers. The phone is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 835 processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB or 256GB internal memory, and will run on Android 7.0 Nougat. The phone packs 24 MP rear camera, 3500 mAh battery and 5.3 inch IGZO display. © YouTube © YouTube The specification have already raised our expectations and made the wait tougher for us. Hold on to your seats guys, we just got a step closer to this marvel. Earlier, even if you threw the phone at somebody, for once their teeth might break but your phone won’t, that’s how sturdy Nokia phones were and we just hope that it maintains the legacy with smartphones as well.

  24. Oliver Thomas Johnson, or more famously known as Dorian Concept, is a composer, producer, and keyboard artist from Austria. Along with his successful solo career, he is also a member of the Austrian funk band Jacob's Salty and Bamboozling Ladder (JSBL). He also has periodically toured as a keyboarder for Flying Lotus (with Richard Spaven on drums) and collaborated with the Cinematic Orchestra. © Wikimedia Johnson, who took up his moniker as a reference to the Dorian scale, cites jazz, funk, electronica and hip-hop as his primary influences. He has developed his own unique sound and perfectly combines jazz with abstract electronica harmonics. After the EP ‘Her Tears Taste Like Pears’, he abandoned his signature use of the Mikrokorg and started working with a Wurlitzer electronic piano along with some analogue synthesizers. For his album ‘Joined Ends’, he revealed a drastically different side of himself and his music and let go of his repetitive beat-making to focus on his intuition and his keyboard skills. You can catch Dorian Concept live at Magnetic Fields Festival happening in Rajasthan from 9th till 11th December.
  25. Bulking is just an excuse for dudes who are lazy and don’t give a damn about nutrition. I’ll keep it real—this whole ‘bulking and cutting’ thing is bullshit. There’s no credible science behind this and young guys in the pursuit of building muscle are wrecking their metabolism and body composition doing it. Here’s what you need to know. The Mass Monsters Era And Bulking - How Healthy Eating In The World Of Bodybuilding Was Murdered Rewind to the 60s and the 70s, or better said the ‘Arnold Era’. This era produced some of the most legendary bodybuilding physiques of all times. In their off seasons, these dudes weren’t becoming balloons of fat. The MAX they went up to was 2-8 kilograms over their competing weight. © broscience Then it was the Dorian Yates or the ‘Mass Monsters’ era. The dudes were HUGE. From steroid abuse to overeating and even by avoiding walking, these men chased noting but mass. Hence, the concept of bulking and cutting was born. © YouTube What came out to the public was the amount of food they were eating, not the amount of stuff they were injecting. People didn’t know the science behind their monstrous diets. With the help of juice and solid workouts, for every 10 pounds they gained, they made sure more than 6 pounds was muscle, not fat! This is where everything thing went out of hands. 90% Of The Dudes Turn A Clean Bulk Into A Dirty Bulk In The Pursuit Of Taking In Calories Take a look around your gym. Most guys who say they are on a bulk, have a huge gut hanging out or probably in the making. This is what bulking for most boils down to- ‘just workout and eat whatever, whenever you can’. This is simply disastrous. Old School bulk was never about sneaking in a pizza or gorging on fries after a tough workout, it was about eating calorie dense clean foods. Here’s The Science. I’ll Keep It Short And Straight. 1) Bulking increases body fat which decreases insulin sensitivity. You’ll become fatter and muscle growth will slow down. 2) The fatter you get, the better your body gets at hoarding more fat. Major fat deposit areas will be around the abdomen and chest. If the bulking is too prolonged and predominantly dirty, loosing this fat gets daunting. 3) While cutting, you’ll lose way more muscle than you think. Bodybuilders are drugged which helps them preserve a lot of muscle. You are natural, you’ll lose muscle. 4) After a point, your muscles will start getting softer because the body will start storing calories in muscle tissues along with the adipose tissue. Building muscle does require a calorie surplus environment but that doesn’t mean stuffing everything that’s eatable. You can lose fat and still build muscle at the same time.
