  2. As India gears up for Republic Day tomorrow, anticipations run high for what promises to be an important and momentous parade ceremony - although with over 10,000 security personnel assigned to cover the event, itâs also one of the countryâs most extensive displays of armed and even digitized security forces throughout its history. Controversial Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro happens to be this yearâs chief guest, and according to DCP (New Delhi Zone) Eish Singhal, special security arrangements have been made to accommodate him and his entourage. © Reuters âWe have a four-layer security arrangement. Inner, middle, outer and one along the border areas across the national capital,â Singhal said, adding that drones will also be deployed. âAround 5,000 to 6,000 Delhi Police personnel have been deployed in New Delhi district along with 50 companies of paramilitary forces.â No traffic will be allowed on Rajpath from Vijay Chowk to India Gate from 6 pm on Saturday till the parade gets over on Sunday. Access to Rajpathâs main zone will continue to be cut off till 12 PM on Sunday with several facial recognition cameras deployed around the area to help identify and apprehend potential suspects during the event. âWe have intensified patrolling in public places. Group patrolling, night patrolling and vehicle checking is being carried out with the help of Central Armed Police Forces. Frisking at metro stations, railway stations, airports and bus terminals has also been tightened,â a senior police official said. Along with the heightened patrols, the police have also instructed hotel staff, taxi and autorickshaw drivers to stay alert. âTenant and servant verification, border checking, security of vital installations, malls and markets, patrolling in heavy footfall areasâ were among the anti-terror measures listed by police officials.

  6. A general view of the US Embassy at the Green zone in Baghdad, Iraq January 7, 2020. Photo: ReutersBAGHDAD: Two rockets crashed late Wednesday into Baghdad’s Green Zone, the high-security enclave where foreign embassies including the US mission are based, security sources told AFP. Just before midnight, AFP correspondents in Baghdad heard two loud blasts followed by the wailing security sirens of the Green Zone. The attack came nearly 24 hours after Tehran launched ballistic missiles at Iraqi bases housing American and other coalition forces, which did not cause casualties. The strikes were in retaliation for a US drone strike that killed top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis last week. Muhandis had been the deputy head of the Hashed al-Shaabi, a web of armed groups incorporated into the Iraqi state but which also have close ties to Tehran. Read also: Iran says it respects sovereignty of Iraq, a day after missiles launch The United States had accused Hashed groups of being behind a string of rocket attacks on the US embassy in Baghdad and bases hosting American troops across the country. On Wednesday, the Hashed’s hardline factions vowed they, too, would take revenge for the US raid. Paramilitary chief Qais al-Khazali — blacklisted as a "terrorist" by the US — said Iraq’s response to the US "will be no less than the size of the Iranian response." Harakat al-Nujaba, a hardline Hashed faction, vowed to avenge Muhandis. "To American soldiers: Do not close your eyes. Revenge for the martyr Muhandis is coming at the hands of Iraqis — until the last soldier among you leaves," it said. US has restored 'level of deterrence' on Iran: PentagonUS Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Wednesday said Washington had re-established some deterrence toward Iran in the wake of the January 3 drone strike that killed Soleimani. Esper also downplayed the firing of two rockets into Baghdad's fortified Green Zone late Wednesday, where the US and other foreign embassies are located and many US troops are based. Read also: Trump says Iran standing down, US 'ready to embrace peace' "We should have some expectation that the Shia groups, either directed or not directed by Iran, will continue in some way, shape or form to try and undermine our presence there, either politically or, you know, take some type of kinetic actions against us or do Lord-knows-what," Esper told reporters. Iran standing down, US 'ready to embrace peace': TrumpOn Wednesday US President Donald Trump offered peace to Iran, saying Tehran was "standing down" after missile strikes on US troop bases in Iraq that resulted in no American or Iraqi deaths. Trumps comments came as tensions between Washington and Tehran soared. Will strike 'resounding blow' if Israel is attacked: Netanyahu warns Iran Addressing a press conference at the White House, Trump said the targeted military bases suffered 'minimal damage' owing to "precautions and an early warning system" that helped save lives when the missiles were fired. "The American people should be happy. I am pleased to announce that no US soldiers were hurt in the attack last night by the Iran regime," he said. "Iran seems to be standing down which is good for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world," he said.

  7. 11-year-old Abhinav Shaw was named after the highly famed and the only Indian to win an Olympic gold in an individual's sport for the country, Abhinav Bindra. He was born the same year the shooting veteran achieved the monumental feat and it was on the day that he was born that his fate was locked in. The namesake, who became the youngest gold medallist at the Khelo India Youth Games (KIYG) in 2019 at just 10 years old, was always meant to follow the career path of Bindra. Having been a shooter himself in his yesteryears, who participated in 10m air pistol events for East Zone, Abhinav's father Rupesh Kumar Shaw envisioned his son taking his dream forward. Abhinav Shaw,10 yrs.Senior State Champion with 395/400.Youngest Indian to qualify for Senior India Camp Trials.Qualified for Senior Nationals at the age of 9yrs. @JKSAindia is proud to have trained him.@IndianOlympians @IndiaSports @kheloindia @ioaindia @Ra_THORe @Abhinav_Bindra pic.twitter.com/T8UA3HExv8 — Joydeep Karmakar OLY (@Joydeep709) August 1, 2018 "I decided that Abhinav would be a shooter on the day he was born. Abhinav was born in the year 2008, the year when Abhinav Bindra won the gold at the Beijing Olympics,” Rupesh Kumar said as reported by NDTV. “Our son is named after the great Abhinav Bindra. I took our son to the club at the age of eight and started his shooting training. When he was nine years old, he cracked the youth trials at Trivandrum in 2017. He became the state senior champion in 2018 and then he went on to win the gold at the Khelo India Games. Everyone says that Abhinav is a natural shooter," he added. The third edition of KIYG will begin on January 10, 2020 in Guwahati and Abhinav is looking forward to building up on the early days of his legacy. "The Khelo India Youth Games is a good platform for youth athletes. My biggest achievement in my career so far has been the gold medal I won in the Khelo India Youth Games in 2019. The competition was very tough and the athletes were very good. I participated in the 10 m air rifle mixed team event (along with teammate Mehuli Ghosh in the U-21 category)," said the young champion. While some would consider his father's 'Dangal-esque' decision to predetermine his son's career but given the fact that Abhinav is genuinely good at what he does and has everything that it takes to make it big talentwise, that decision might not be that objectionable after all.

  8. Have you ever noticed that during winter a perfume is less noticeable? It's an unknown fact that perfumes don't linger on for long in winter and that's due to the drop in temperatures. Your body's natural moisture level causes the skin to get drier. When it's dry, it is merely impossible for your perfume to last which is why people with oily skin are benefitted here. But, even then, there are ways to combat this issue and not let anyone go 'nose blind', irrespective of the season. Here are four best ways to ensure that your fragrance lasts longer than ever, especially in winter: 1. Pick Heavy Fragrances Summer is for light ephemeral fragrances but for winter, they are an absolute no-no. You need to opt for heavier scents since your skin will be comparatively dry. Picking a scent that is heavier is one of the best ways to smell good all day long. © iStock 2. Pay Attention To Notes The base notes of perfumes are very important in winter. Being the heaviest part as compared to middle and top notes, having a good base note is necessary. Choose perfumes like sandalwood, patchouli or vanilla as they are common for winter. If you like some other heavy fragrance, you can lay your hands on that as well. © iStock 3. Picking A Category Think about spicy winter perfumes that have a strong fragrance of cinnamon, cardamon etc. They mainly fall in the oriental perfume category. The fragrance is rich and quite exotic that will definitely last all day long. Need more? Try woody or earthy fragrances. They are a good choice and will let you reminisce of beautiful winter days. Try labdanum or oakmoss as they hydrate the skin with their gentle texture. © iStock 4. Shopping For A Fragrance Scents work differently on every skin. A perfume that smells good on your friend may not necessarily react the same way on your skin. To properly shop for it, you need to try it out. The simplest way to begin is to leave your house without any sort of scent. © iStock Next, you can check the fragrance on four different places, left wrist, right wrist, and both elbows. Take notes on how the fragrance develops with time. If the fragrance fades then the fragrance is not for you. But if it's still active even after a couple of hours, you know you have found a winner.

  9. People sitting around wooden fire to keep them warm during chilled weather in city. Photo: APP/M. Saeed Qureshi The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has predicted that there would be no rain for Karachi under the influence of a westerly disturbance which has caused widespread rain and snowfall in vast areas of Balochistan, reported The News. The metropolis has been gripped by a new cold wave due to cold and dry northwesterly winds over the last few days. “Karachi missed rain as a westerly disturbance passed Karachi by after causing heavy rains and snowfall in Balochistan, but cold weather has returned to Karachiites,” Chief Meteorological Officer Sardar Sarfraz said while speaking to The News. MET office official said Karachi’s weather, which had returned to normal a few days ago, would become cold again as chilly and dry winds from the northwesterly direction had started blowing again in the city. Read also: Freezing winds grip Karachi as winter cold intensifies Sarfraz added the cold wave was likely to continue for the next four days under the influence of Siberian winds. He added that temperature in the metropolis is likely to drop as low as eight °C on Wednesday night. “The mercury would drop during nights in the city while the daytime temperature would also remain low under the influence of northwesterly or Siberian winds,” Sarfraz said. The first day of the new year saw freezing winds grip the city as temperatures dropped to as low as 11°C. According to MET Office records, the lowest temperature recorded in the city was in January 1934, when the temperature dropped to zero degrees Centigrade. Earlier, the PMD had reported that the metropolis' cold spell was expected to intensify in January 2020. The warning had come after Karachi recorded its lowest temperature — at 9.2°C — in the current winter season on December 24. Prior to the current record, the city had recorded its lowest temperature this year at 9.5°C. Read also: Karachi shivers from coldest day of winter season 2019 as mercury drops to 9°C Record-breaking winterThe current winter season is on track to break records, as mercury in Peshawar dropped to a freezing -1°C after 36 years. Karachi, on the other hand, recorded its lowest (9.2°C), while Skardu reached a freezing -21°C in recent days.
  10. Republic Day is right around the corner, and it's one mega national event that every Indian looks forward to. Apart from the high patriotic furore the day invokes, with a showcase of exceptional folk dances and military prowess of our country, one of the other major highlights of the celebration is the tableau showcase. © Twitter This year too, on New Year's day, the Centre announced that only 16 out of 32 states have been shortlisted for this year's showcase due to “time constraints”. However, the issue now is that three opposition-ruled states, namely, Kerala, West Bengal and Maharashtra, whose tableaux have been rejected and therefore haven't made it to the list are pretty pissed with the development. © Twitter The leaders from the respective states are crying foul over the entire issue and claiming that this is a case of pure discrimination against them. Kerala Law Minister AK Balan was quoted by NDTV on the matter saying, "The Centre becomes berserk whenever they hear the word Kerala or Malayali and added that rejection after the third phase cannot happen "without political interference". © Twitter Another Trinamool Congress MP Saugata Roy said that, "The rejection of the West Bengal tableau for the Republic Day parade is discriminatory. It has been done because West Bengal has been opposing the Centre's CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) and the NRC (National Register of Citizens) plans.” Not only politicians, even people have a lot to say about it. #Maharashtra rejected by #BJP intentionally. — à¤à¤¿à¤°à¤£ à¤à¤µà¥à¤¹à¤¾à¤£ (@kir_chavan) January 3, 2020 Vengeance?

  11. London’s New Year Day Parade to showcase ‘Visit Pakistan’ videoLONDON: The High Commission of Pakistan in London will be running a ‘Visit Pakistan’ video message on London's New Year's Day Parade (LNYDP) 2020. The specially produced video, with National Anthem tune played in the background, contains Prime Minister Imran Khan's brief message, some most beautiful photos and scenes of country's breathtaking tourist destinations and glimpses of the Royal Couple's recent visit to Pakistan. Pakistan would be one of the twelve (12) countries/brands to be showcased on the Giant Screens covering the LNYDP throughout the day. Screens will be strategically located along the parade route at Piccadilly Circus, Pall Mall, Trafalgar Square and Big Ben/Houses of Parliament. The video message will be played in front of as many as 650,000 Street Spectators in addition to more than one million viewing audience through the day. Besides, hundreds of international television channels will also be airing the footage of the Giant Screens to their millions of viewers. Commenting on the initiative, High Commissioner Nafees Zakaria said: “Presenting Pakistan as the top tourist destination for 2020 on the Giant Screens in London is a unique opportunity. This is the occasion when tourists decide where to visit during the year ahead and 'Visit Pakistan' message is perfectly timed, particularly after the successful Royal Visit to Pakistan.
  12. Photo: Reuters Australia marched toward a dominant series victory over New Zealand on Saturday after dismissing the visitors cheaply and building a mammoth 456-run lead on day three of the Boxing Day test. Leading 1-0 after thrashing the Black Caps in the Perth opener, Tim Paine’s Australia pushed to 137 for four in their second innings at stumps after routing the tourists for 148 in a firestorm of pace bowling at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Replying to Australia’s first innings 467, New Zealand were bowled out 120 runs short of forcing the hosts to bat again, but Paine sent his batsmen back out to pile on the agony. At the close, Matthew Wade was 15 not out, with Travis Head, the first innings centurion, on 12. The equation is bleak for Kane Williamson’s men, who had hoped for a result in Melbourne to keep the series alive to the third and final match in Sydney next week. No team has ever scored more than 417 runs in a fourth innings at the MCG, and none has ever chased down more than 332 to win at the venue. Dominated by Australia’s batsmen in the opening two days, New Zealand crumbled in the face of formidable fast bowling. Pat Cummins was chief tormentor, underlining his claim as the format’s premier exponent with a blistering display of pace and precision. He led Australia’s bowling with 5-28 to continue a brilliant year. “I’ve had a pretty good run lately so I can’t see it getting too much better than what the last year’s been but hopefully I can maintain it at that level,” 26-year-old Cummins, the year’s leading wicket-taker, told reporters. He was scarcely better than team mate James Pattinson, the fiery 29-year-old quick claiming 3-34 in his return to the side as replacement for the injured Josh Hazlewood. Only opener Tom Latham scored more than 20 runs for New Zealand, but after raising a tough half-century, he promptly gave up his wicket for 50, one of Cummins’ four caught-behind victims. Thousands of New Zealanders had flown across “the ditch” to watch their team’s first appearance at the MCG in 32 years, many with hope of a better show than the 296-run capitulation in Perth. Instead, they have seen another disaster unfold in the wake of Williamson’s decision to send Australia in to bat after winning the toss. Adding to the gloom, their pace spearhead Trent Boult suffered a fracture in his hand when struck by a Mitchell Starc ball while batting after lunch. Having missed Perth with a rib injury, Boult will head home after Melbourne and miss the Sydney test. “It’s obviously gutting news for Trent and also for our group to have someone like that ruled out with his injuries,” said Latham. In a rare highlight for New Zealand, seamer Neil Wagner captured his 200th Test wicket when he dismissed Steve Smith for seven, the fourth time he has scalped the master batsman in the series. But Head and Wade stood firm in the final overs to ensure Australia will return on day four with victory all but assured. “Fair play to Australia the way they bowled,” said Latham. “They were relentless and didn’t really let us have anything, unfortunately.”

  14. Prime Minister Imran Khan. Photo: FilePrime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday reiterated calls for an end to India’s gross abuse and oppression of Kashmiris.“On Human Rights Day, we must appeal to the world's conscience, to upholders of international law and to the United Nations Security Council to act against the illegal annexation of Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK)by the Indian occupation government,” PM Imran tweeted. “We salute and stand resolutely with the brave Kashmiris struggling for their right of self-determination,” he added.Occupied Kashmir has been under military curfew since August 5, when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi revoked the constitutional autonomy of the region and arrested thousands of people. Since the annexation, New Delhi has also enforced a near complete communications blackout by blocking internet and telecommunication services in the disputed territory.‘Govt committed to protecting the rights of all citizens’In a separate tweet, PM Imran assured that his government remains committed to the protection of the rights of all citizens without discrimination. “On International Human Rights Day, Muslims need to remember that the message of equality, justice and protection of human rights for all was given more than 1400 years ago by our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him),” the premier said.The prime minister added that the message of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)"embodied the cardinal principles of respect for human rights and human dignity".The premier said his government was committed to the protection of human rights for all citizens as preached by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), especially in his last sermon.World Human Rights Day is observed every year on December 10, the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948.

  16. Australian cricketer Will Pucovski has shown that he belongs in the highly challenging domestic cricket circuit that the players have Down Under. Born in 1998, the top-order batsman has 18 first-class matches and 12 List A games and is tipped as the future of Aussie cricket. Currently playing for Victoria in a Sheffield Shield contest against New South Wales, Pucovski has shown elite-level professionalism and is playing with the kind of focus even some of the veterans of the game also fail to achieve after years of dedication. While he stands on the pitch like a concrete wall scoring at his own pace, with utmost patience, the bowlers seemed to have found another way of forcing him to lose his game, by hitting him right where it hurts the most! View this post on Instagram Not once, not twice, but thrice! It's been tough going for Will Pucovski today ð¥ A post shared by cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) on Nov 30, 2019 at 5:50pm PST Not once, not twice but THREE TIMES did the poor man get smacked right in the nuts followed by an expression which can best be put in words as, “why God, why!” Now if you have ever shared Pucovski's pain, you'd understand and empathise with the poor lad but Twitter users, as usual, have been ruthlessly hilarious with their comments and you can't help but crack a smile: No ball. — Stylez (@Styletix) December 1, 2019 The best part is the physio's name 'Adcock' ð — Sandy Lanceley (@sandylanceley) December 1, 2019 pic.twitter.com/UFywPDKuFr — Dr M Amir Bhat (@DrMAmirBhat1) December 1, 2019 Ooft!

He helped his side make a strong comeback after their opponents scored a respectable 294 in the first innings. Pucovski went down in the 105th over as Victoria trailed by 12 runs.

  17. We have come a long way since the time when the ancient ways of the world dictated our lives. While this 'way of life' was, obviously, laid out for women, men have also shouldered the burden of the unsaid expectations and taboos for a long time. However, now, as the world has learnt to respect the concept of 'live and let live', things are slowly beginning to change. © Red Chillies Entertainment With such a welcome change, men can now truly get over the insecurities that have weighed on their mind all this while. As the world and people around us change with time, they have proved that it's time men completed accepted themselves for who they are, and that would pretty much be the same as celebrating themselves and fellow-men every day! Here are 5 such insecurities among men that have become a thing of the past for good: 1. Balding © Maddock Films Most men wouldn't want to shave off their heads for no good reason, though personal and religious reasons cannot be discounted. Yet, somehow, natural causes related to sparse hair coverage brings in 'shame' as opposed to men choosing to shed their tresses. However, people have now begun to look beyond bald patches and receding hairline. The success of Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Bala and the popularity enjoyed by the likes of Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel only reiterates the fact that people have come a long way since the time when lack of hair on one's head would turn most men into a laughing stock. 2. Height © HBO And again, since we are leading with examples, in any case, it's about time we acknowledge that height-related insecurities can happily take a backseat now. The world has finally come to measure people's worth based on their skills and talent, and not how closer to the clouds they are. Before turning into the superstar that he is today, even SRK started out as a regular guy with an average height. It was his skills as an actor that eventually got him such immense success. Ayushmann Khurrana, for that matter too, does not come in the category of taller men in the industry, but his back-to-back hits are proof that your 'height' and your 'talent' have absolutely no connection whatsoever. 3. Weight © Twitter - Shannon Werle With “dad bod” really trending this year, it can be said that the fixtures around the idea of 'ideal male body' has gradually loosened enough to allow men to enjoy breathing space that lets them be and not chase after runway-inspired 'mod(el) bod'. Take Jason Mamoa, Chris Hemsworth and Leonardo di Caprio for instance. Wrinkles, grey hair or a couple of extra pounds doesn't make them any less desirable. 4. Di*k Size © Wikipedia Now, as debatable a topic as this might be, research has shown that the entire tussle related to 'size' mostly rests in a guy's head. Women are more taken by the appearance of the ***** than its size, because while the length of the ***** was rated sixth on the list of importance, women rated the girth third. 5. Skin Colour © Mensxp Now, we understand how obsessed the Indian society can be with skin colour, but let us assure you that your skin colour has got nothing on the kind of person you are and what your achievements are. Vicky Kaushal and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are two of Bollywood's most popular actors currently, and their skin colour never got in the way of them facing the camera or making it big.

  18. Apple has revolutionised wireless audio ever since the company removed the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and instead started offering AirPods. The most common issue with wireless Bluetooth earphones is that they are unreliable and pairing can be a tedious process. Apple made it easier for iPhone, iPad and MacBook users as we can connect AirPods seamlessly with Apple products. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla However, it was launched in December 2016 and needed a much-required redesign for users who wanted more from their wireless audio devices. Apple recently launched the AirPods Pro that comes with active noise cancellation (ANC); a feature that has been a staple on headphones but only a handful offer them on earbuds. Even though Apple introduced a newer version of the classic AirPods, the new AirPods Pro is the real upgrade everyone has been wanting. I've been using the AirPods Pro in various scenarios to test its sound quality and noise cancellation abilities. Here's what we think about the new AirPods Pro and why I can't go anywhere without them for a single day. Design The biggest difference one will notice is the major difference in design when compared to the AirPods. It now comes with a silicon tip that makes the fit in the ear canal much more tighter and gives a better seal than the regular AirPods. The overall shape of the earbud is now more oval than before and the stem is now shorter as well. The stem of the earbuds now also comes with a sensor that is also flat and can be used to control playback, switch between ANC, transparency and ANC off modes. The new AirPods Pro's design is a bit more subtle than the regular AirPods but is still quite distinctive. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla For people who didn't know, the regular AirPods aren't meant for use while working out, will love the fact that the AirPods Pro is sweat and water-resistant and make a great gym accessory. It comes with an IPX4 rating which means you can use them without worrying about damaging them in the gym. The AirPods Pro are also perfect for runners who want the better sound quality and want a tighter seal so that it doesn't fall off while running. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The AirPods Pro also come with a different charging case; i.e. larger, wider and shorter than the AirPods' charging case. Like the newer version of the AirPods, the Pro variant also supports wireless charging. The case itself may be bigger than the original AirPods, it is still small enough to fit in your pocket. I personally own the new Sony WF-1000XM3 and in comparison, it is much smaller in size. When comparing the two earbuds sizes, the AirPods Pro are less bulkier than its Sony counterpart. How It Works Like the AirPods, the Pro variant also connects and pairs with your phone as soon as you open the lid of the charging case. As soon as you are paired and connected, you can find additional features in the Bluetooth settings of the iPhone. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The AirPods Pro comes with three different silicone tip sizes and in order to find the right size for your ear canal, you need to do an ear tip test. The AirPods Pro has two microphones to adjust the ANC level for the earbuds. It uses the one microphone on the outside to detect ambient noise and the other microphone detects any other remaining noise to calibrate the optimum noise cancellation level using the on-board software. This way, the AirPods Pro can always monitor your environment and adapt the noise-cancellation level. Apple says that the AirPods pro scans and adapts the ANC level 200 times per second. The AirPods Pro also comes with the H1 Chip that uses 10 audio cores to make the adjustment in real time. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Using these techniques, the ear tip test scans and tells you if your seal is good enough to use ANC on the AirPods Pro. If the seal isn't good enough, the test will ask you to adjust the earbuds or change the tip altogether. The test is carried out by playing a small portion of Tycho's “Awake" track. However, what we would have liked to see is a prompt of this test as soon as you connect the AirPods Pro to your iPhone for the first time. If you don't know what you are doing, you may completely miss the ear-fit test if you don't go digging into the Bluetooth settings. Performance and Sound Quality © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla I used the AirPods Pro in various scenarios to test the noise-cancellation ability. I tested them in our office where it can get very loud especially during heated debates. I tested the AirPods Pro in one of the busiest markets in Delhi, India surrounded by traffic, street vendors and loud music blasting from speakers in stores. I even tested the AirPods Pro at a busy Delhi Metro station to test out the noise cancellation features. In all scenarios, we can confidently say that the AirPods Pro can block out most of the sound in each of these scenarios. The AirPods Pro cannot block everything and I think that is by design so that you have at least some sense of your surroundings. Having the ANC work like advertised and also helped us in keeping the volume lower. This is, in turn, reduces the risk of ear damage in the long run and you can still enjoy your music by blocking out nearby noise. What we found impressive about the ANC feature was that it was also effective for Podcasts. While music can generally block out a lot of sounds, when listening to the spoken word, the AirPods Pro did a really good job in blocking out the ambient noise as well. You can still hear some ambient noise, but we were quite surprised to see them perform well even when hearing radio shows. I mentioned earlier, one of the modes that can be controlled by the Force sensor on the AirPods Pro is the Transparency Mode. This mode basically lets you switch off the ANC mode and let the ambient noise come through the earbuds. It is a very handy feature to have if you want to talk to someone face-to-face or just want to get a sense of your surroundings. I would recommend people to use this feature when running on the street so that you are aware of oncoming traffic. This mode can be activated by simply holding the force sensor on the stem to switch between the different modes. When it comes to sound quality, you will instantly notice the difference from the regular AirPods the moment you hear the first track. The vocals sound punchier while the sound stage makes you feel closer to the music than ever before. The AirPods Pro mid-range frequency is probably the star here as the lower frequencies (bass) also sound a lot clearer and more impactful. This is partly because Apple employs Adaptive EQ which tunes these frequencies according to your ear. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla While sound quality preference can be subjective, the AirPod Pro probably offer the most balanced sound you can get from wireless earbuds. The kick drums on any Hip-Hop track sound much more defined and you can even visualise it if you've ever seen a music producer's arrangement window or a mastering mixer. For electronica, the synths, panning automation and different filter effects feel very much lively. To test the AirPods Pro, I listened to Synkro's “Images” and “Realize” tracks that have all the elements an electronica track needs. The soundscape is way more layered when listening to a proper mastered track. Most new-age Hip-Hop tracks are shabbily mastered due to which the sound experience can differ on differ headphones. However, Synkro is known for making tracks that are generally better mastered and have enough room in the layers for you to notice every instrument and effects. After listening to the two Synkro tracks, I can confidently say that the AirPods Pro is the current king of mid- and low-range frequencies in the wireless earbud segment. The last thing we need to mention is the average battery life on the AirPods Pro. With ANC turned on, you can expect it to last around 4 to 4.5 hours, however, when turned off it can last up to 5 hours. When using the AirPods Pro for making calls, you can expect the battery to dip down to 3.5 hours. With a fully charged case, you can use the AirPods Pro for up to 24 hours in total listening time. The Final Say If you are looking for wireless earbuds that can block out outside noise, deliver great sound quality and aren't very bulky, the AirPods Pro is the best ANC device you can get right now. It may not be perfect but it sure comes close. If you are an iPhone user, this is a must-have accessory that will probably come in handy more than you can imagine. After using the AirPods Pro, I can confidently say I cannot go a day without using these wireless earbuds no matter where I am. View the full article
  19. The most complete batsman of his time. The most prolific run-scorer of all time. The biggest cricket icon the gentleman's game has ever known. A living God amongst ordinary men with the unique ability to evoke passion amongst cricket fans. Sachin Tendulkar needs no introduction when it comes to cricket. Arguably one of the greatest cricketers of all time, Sachin Tendulkar pretty much achieved everything one can dream of in his illustrious career. From his majestic batting, admirable demeanour to records galore, few have come close to matching the Little Master's ability to capture the imagination of fans across the globe. Boasting a full range of rage of orthodox shots, Tendulkar's batting was based on the purest principles - perfect balance, economy of movement, precision in stroke-making and, above all, anticipation (an intangible quality, possessed by few greats, which continues to elude some of the best in the business even now). © Reuters But, before Tendulkar eventually became the world-dominating, bowler-slaying 'Master Blaster', he was a youngster whose batting genius, too good for domestic cricket, propelled him onto the international stage at just 16-years-old, an age where others aren't even sure about their appearances, let alone their career choices. However, Tendulkar was different. In 1988, the Indian team had travelled to Bombay to play against the touring New Zealand team when the senior cricketers first laid eyes on the Tendulkar's artistry with the willow. The youngster's ability to negotiate the top fast bowlers, including Kapil Dev, in the nets convinced then Bombay captain Dilip Vengsarkar who handpicked him to play for his team. A Ranji Trophy debut came at the age of 15 and Tendulkar repaid the faith of Vengsarkar by smashing an unbeaten hundred against Gujarat, which made him the youngest Indian to score a ton on his first-class debut. His sensational debut was followed by hundreds in Deodhar and Duleep Trophies. And, at the end of the 1988-89 Ranji season, Tendulkar emerged as Bombay's highest run-scorer with 583 runs at an average of 67.77. Owing to his spectacular domestic season, the precocious little kid had already shown he belonged in the league of men. And, a national call-up was around the corner. At the end of the 1988-89 Ranji Trophy season, as the Indian team set course for West Indies, Tendulkar was the talk of the town with a chorus of his international debut. But, he eventually missed out on making the cut for the Windies tour. © Reuters It was Raj Singh Dungarpur, the then Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president, whose insistence finally led to Tendulkar getting Team India's Test Cap Number 187 as the national team toured Pakistan. On 15th November 1989, Tendulkar found himself in the company of men and at the highest level of cricket as he walked onto the field at the National Stadium in Karachi. But, that day was not about Tendulkar impressing anyone with his batting or scoring a hundred. In years to come, his debut was going to be remembered as the day a 16-year-old boy became a man. The rivalry between India and Pakistan was at its peak in the late 80s, especially after Javed Miandad had slammed a last-ball six off Chetan Sharma to win the Austral-Asia Cup in 1986. Thus, when India decided to hand Tendulkar his debut, a lot of people were as nervous and the young Bombay cricketer. Becoming, and continues to remain, the youngest Indian to make his Test debut, Tendulkar had a forgettable outing as he was clean bowled for just 15 runs in the first innings by Waqar Younis, who was making his debut for Pakistan. Going up against one of the fiercest bowling attacks in the world which included the likes of Wasim Akram, Imran Khan and Abdul Qadir, Tendulkar couldn't improve on his score as he didn't get a chance to bat in the second innings as the game eventually resulted in a draw. © Reuters But, Tendulkar remained unfazed by his debut innings. He soon gave everyone a glimpse of his batting masterclass when he hit his maiden fifty, a gritty 59 off 172 balls, in the first innings of the second Test. In the next match, he came close to registering another fifty but missed out after being bowled by Qadir on 41. For a batsman of his age, Tendulkar, in his own capacity, had already proved his abilities. But, it was the final Test of the series that truly showed his character. With the Pakistani fast-bowling attack targetting his body with nasty bouncers, Tendulkar kept on swaying out of line and dropped his wrists to keep his wicket. But, a nasty bouncer by Younis struck him on the nose as everyone gathered around him in concern. But, despite the gushing blood from his nose and enduring extreme pain, Tendulkar declined medical assistance and continued to bat, proving that even the chin music or body blows thrown at him weren't enough to shatter his confidence. Showcasing the composure of a seasoned professional, the 16-year-old scored his second fifty - 57 off 135 balls - of the tour. © Reuters As the four-match Test series ended in a draw, Tendulkar finished off with 215 runs, at an average of 35.83, to his name. Two days after the final Test, the ODI series was set to begin in Peshawar. But, while it was expected to be a scintillating contest, incessant rains ensured that a 50-over match could not be completed. Instead, a 20-over exhibition match, a friendly, was played as a token of gratitude for the fans who had turned up in large numbers at the stadium. With nothing on the line, the players from both sides probably looked at the fixture as a mere training session which explains why young Tendulkar was given free rein with the bat. Chasing a total of 157 runs, India had lost three wickets with 88 runs on the scoreboard when young Tendulkar walked out in the middle and clubbed a young Mushtaq Ahmed for two sixes in an over. In the next over, a seasoned Qadir challenged Tendulkar with an alleged taunt: "why're you hitting kids, try and hit me if you can". And, Tendulkar obliged. © Reuters The right-handed batsman smashed Qadir for four sixes, including three big hits in a row. Letting his bat do the talking, Tendulkar ensured Qadir finished his over after conceding a staggering 27 runs (6,4,0,6,6,6). While India lost the exhibition match by four runs, a young Tendulkar won everyone over for his blistering 18-ball 53 - labelled as "one of the best innings I have seen" by the then Indian captain Krishnamachari Srikkanth. On a tour that many thought was too big a task for a young cricketer like Tendulkar, the Mumbai batsman used it as a platform to showcase his batting abilities and great temperament which set the tone of what would eventually turn into a breath-taking career. Tendulkar played a record 200 Test matches for India in a career that lasted 24 years. And, when he called time on his career in 2013, Tendulkar bowed out as the highest run-scorer of all time in international cricket. This is something that I love doing the most!ð pic.twitter.com/cbliXB47bJ — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) November 15, 2019 Thirty years after his debut, Tendulkar is still celebrated as one of the greats to have ever graced the game and remains a fan-favourite. While those who saw him play would surely feel blessed, but, for those who couldn't, Tendulkar shared a video of himself playing his iconic strokes on the eve of his 30th Team India debut anniversary.

  20. It's Children's Day and people across social media are sharing throwback pictures from their childhood to wish their inner kid and children across the world, because it's their day. Our beloved celebrities too have joined the bandwagon and are sharing their baby pictures with their fans. Former cricketer and one of the most savage social media users, Virender Sehwag also shared a picture on his social media. But, he didn't share his picture. Instead, Sehwag shared a heartbreaking and one of the most courageous accounts of a young boy, who lost his life for the love he had for his country. © Instagram That young boy is Shaheed Baji Rout from Nilakanthpur, Odisha who was the youngest martyr of India's freedom struggle. He was killed at the age of 12 by the British Army when he refused to ferry them across river Brahamani. Sehwag posted his picture with the caption, "On this #ChildrensDay it's time we know about Shaheed Baji Rout, from Nilakanthpur in Orissa, the youngest Martyr of India's freedom struggle." He further wrote, "At the age of 12, this young boy was on guard of a country boat and was ordered by the British troops to ferry them across river Brahamani. Baji who had already heard details of the brutality of the troop which had killed innocent people in the village understood if the British troops were to be obstructed, then they needed to be stopped from going across to the other bank. He therefore refused to ferry them across. The troop threatened to kill him if he did not ferry them across immediately. Baji however rejected their orders." Sehwag then narrated, in the post, about the brutality of the British Army and how the young boy faced it with the utmost courage until his last breath.

A soldier pierced his bayonet into the soft skull of Baji, Another British soldier started firing ruthlessly. While one of the bullets hit Baji and he lay dead, his other friends Laxman Malik,Fagu Sahoo, Hrushi Pradhan & Nata Malik were also killed.

  23. While a lot of people are okay with a sloppy or unkempt look, there are times when the occasion does demand a debonair that's classy and sharp and that's exactly when you need to up your game. In such cases, learning the art of tucking your shirt the right way will play a bigger role. The visual difference never goes unnoticed. With minimal wardrobe changes and a few tasteful tricks, you can easily ace the tuck-in game. Here are four fail-proof ways to do it right while you look your best! 1. The Basic Tuck © Istock The first technique is the basic tuck that almost all of us are taught ever since the beginning. Wear your pants and pull down your shirt as much as you can. Then, simply tuck it in. Close the zipper of your pants and then wear a belt and tighten it. This method is quite basic and super effective. Remember, you can't ace this method without a belt. 2. Military Tuck © Istock An advanced version of the basic tuck is a military version. It's an efficient method and once you have learnt it, your shirt would just stay in the right place. Start with your pants and keep them unbuttoned. Tuck in your shirt and then shut the zipper. In the meantime, you need to pinch the excess fabric of the shirt from the side seams. Take help your thumb and index finger and make sure you are pinching it right. You will end this step with a neatly folded pleat on the side. Once done, close the button and then wear a belt (if you want) for an additional grip. 3. The Underpants Tuck © Istock The name of this tuck might sound very unflattering but in a real sense, it can actually do wonders and keep your shirt tucked in for hours. All you need to do is wear your undershirt with your underpants, and your shirt with pants, basically, in layers, one after the other. Wear a belt to hold the friction better! 4. Shirttail Garters © Istock A technique that men have been using since the 19th century to keep their shirts tucked in well has to be shirttail garters. There's no hassle of pulling or pushing down your shirt. This item uses the downward pressure and then locks the shirttail at the right place so that your shirt stays right there. Wear your pants and voila, you are done! View the full article
  24. Knowing how to apply a perfume might appear to be a no brainer for you but perfume is an integral part of your personal style and people tend to remember you by your fragrance. There are so many different ways of applying it and the risk is you will either end up smelling worse or give an overwhelming whiff to every person. But, you can quickly master the art of applying it. Thankfully, this guide will come handy and let the fragrance last the whole day. 1. Buying The Right Cologne © Istock The first thing you need to know here is to not look for a cheap scent that will wear off straight after a minute of its application. We recommend you try out fresher summery fragrances like woody or spicy colognes. They work well for winters too! Use the samples between your wrists and wait for a minute. This will help you understand how the perfume matures over time. 2. Applying It The Right Way © Istock The better you are at applying it, the chances of it lasting longer are higher and you will also get the most out of every bottle. Ensure your skin is dry when you are done with your shower as this will allow your fragrance to get trapped. Next, you need to identify your heat spots and those could be your neck, inner elbows, wrists and armpits. Spray only onto these areas but from a distance. Apply it lightly on your heat points. Bonus tip: Don't rub your wrists. 3. The Lasting Effect Of Your Cologne © Istock Your perfume's ability to last longer totally depends on the way you keep it. Many people tend to get sloppy when it comes to storing the fragrance. Never keep it near the bedside table as it will be exposed to different temperatures that will turn down the fragrance level. Keep it in a dark, cool place. This quick tip will let you smell great all day long! 4. Wear It At An Appropriate Time © Istock Applying cologne is your best bet to be confident, no matter where you are. But you need to be aware of how it blends with your natural oils. For example, if you are going to a party, apply only a few sprays. Your body odour can get mixed with the cologne that will only make you stink and not smell fresh. 5. Dab It Well © Istock If your cologne doesn't include a nozzle, use the dabbing process to apply it the right way. Once you have opened it, cover it with your fingertip. Take the liquid on your finger and dab it on your pulse points. One dab of it is enough and once you are done, wash your hands thoroughly. 6. Don't Apply It Too Often © Istock Once you start using a particular cologne, you will get used to the fragrance and you might think it has worn off. But, that doesn't mean you reapply it more than twice a day. Apply it before you head out and use it later when you actually feel there's a need, spray it and make sure to keep it light.
