  1. Apple has a fair lead over Qualcomm and other chipset manufacturers that have been powering Android smartphones for years and this year is no exception. In our review, simple Geekbench tests showed how far ahead Apple's A13 Bionic chipset really is even when compared to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855+ chipset. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla However, AnandTech, a publication known for breaking down CPUs and GPUs for comprehensive reviews and comparisons just published their report on the performance of the A13 Bionic chipset. The website is highly revered for testing out CPUs and GPUs in detail, and their report shows that the A13 chip is up to 30% faster than the A12 chipset. In fact, AnandTech reports that Apple's A13 maybe 2-3 years ahead of competing processors. In their report, AnandTech said, “Overall, in terms of performance, the A13 and the Lightning cores are extremely fast. In the mobile space, there's really no competition as the A13 posts almost double the performance of the next best non-Apple SoC. The difference is a little bit less in the floating-point suite, but again we're not expecting any proper competition for at least another 2-3 years, and Apple isn't standing still either.” © AnandTech When looking at AnandTech's benchmark scores, it is quite apparent that the ASUS ROG II that comes with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855+ chipset is nowhere close to the iPhone 11. In fact, the fastest Android smartphone right now doesn't even beat the iPhone X which was launched in 2017. AnandTech also found that the A13 chipset is twice as powerful as the latest Qualcomm or any other chipset found on Android smartphones. If you are a gaming fan, it is worth noting that the GPU in the A13 chipset has 50-60% higher sustained performance scores than last year's iPhone XS according to AnandTech's GFXBench graphics benchmark results. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla If you want to read the report for yourself and check out every benchmark results in detail, you can read AnandTech's detailed review here.

  2. One of the biggest accolades in the world, The Nobel Prize is given to those who excel in the field of academics, from around the world. It's held annually and the work that's recognised, stands out when someone receives this incredible honour. The awards are given to people for academic excellence in the fields of chemistry, physics, literature, physiology, medicine and promoting and building peace. The award was first designed around the will of the first Swedish chemist, engineer and industrialist Alfred Nobel, when the first 5 Nobel prizes were awarded in 1885. The awards are given by the Swedish and Norwegian institutions in recognition of academic, cultural, or scientific advances. © nobelprize.org That's all you really need to know about the origin of the Nobel prize and some other facts related to it. What we really want to tell you is that Indians haven't been far off in receiving such a prestigious honour. Indians, both from India and around the globe, have received the Nobel Prize in various fields, with one winning it quite recently actually, in the field of economics. We thought we should list down these 9 Indian geniuses, even though most of them don't reside here, but still make the country proud of the kind of talent we possess, globally: (1) Rabindranath Tagore The first Indian who won a Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. © nobelprize.org Celebrated artist and poet. Tagore won the Nobel prize for “his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse”. Also famously known as Gurudev, Tagore was one of the greatest literary figures India has ever had. He even composed the National Anthem of India and Bangladesh. Even today, his stories, poetry and his art are cherished amongst the cultural community of India. (2) C.V. Raman The Indian who won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1930. © Finacial Express Sir Chandrashekhara Venkata Raman, won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1930 “for his work on the scattering of light and for the discovery of the effect named after him”. He is best known for discovering the 'Raman Effect', which was a path-breaking milestone in the field of physics. (3) Mother Teresa Indian citizen who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. © BCCL Even though she wasn't born here, Mother Teresa moved to India at the age of 19 and made it her home. She spent the rest of her life here as a Roman Catholic missionary, helping the poorest of the poor. Her humanitarian work led her to establish the congregation of the Missionaries For Charity, which, in turn, recognised her with a Nobel Peace Prize. (4) Amartya Sen Indian citizen who won the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 1998. © nobelprize.org Dr Amartya Sen was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences “for his contributions to welfare economics”. Having studied economics, Dr Sen went on to teach it in many reputed institutions in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. His research papers on welfare economics and social justice are studied even today and surely did get him a lot of awards, including the Nobel, of course. (5) Kailash Satyarthi Indian citizen who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. © nobelprize.org Kailash Satyarthi from Madhya Pradesh was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for his “struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education”. The man has spent his life battling corporate for using child labour and has done it away from the spotlight all this while. He also put the child's right to education on the map, in India, through his work with UNESCO. Towards the end, he earned a Nobel Peace Prize and shared the same with Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan. (6) Har Gobind Khorana Indian citizen who won a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1968. © BCCL Har Gobind Khorana an Indian-born American biochemist was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1968 along with Marshall W. Nirenberg and Robert W. Holley “for their interpretation of the genetic code and its function in protein synthesis”. (7) Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar Indian citizen who won a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1983. © nobelprize.org Sir Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar was born in India but he eventually moved to the United States and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics "for his theoretical studies of the physical processes of importance to the structure and evolution of the stars”. He happened to be the nephew of another Nobel Laureate C.V. Raman, so we guess it quite literally ran in the family! His discoveries led to the establishment of the physical processes involved in the evolution of stars. (8) Venkatraman Ramakrishnan Indian who won a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2009. © nobelprize.org Indian-born American-British biologist, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry “for studies of the structure and function of the ribosome”, along with Thomas A. Steitz and Ada E. Yonath. (9) Abhijeet Banerjee He won the Nobel Prize this year, 2019 in Economics. © BCCL The India-origin American based economist did us proud this year by winning a Nobel Prize in economics for fighting poverty. Abhijit won the Prize for his “experimental approach to alleviating poverty,” and the world can't help but take note of this 58-year-old development economist, who has been a trailblazer when it comes to meeting poverty head-on, and helping the needy rise above it. So, there you go. In case you set foot into the outside world, you will have something to show off and take pride in, definitely. From literature to medicine, to economics and even peace, India has shown the world that we are here to fight the good fight, by slowly progressing toward a suitably developed global impact.
  3. To all the people who're getting on an airplane anytime soon, I'm sorry for what you're going to read next. There's a terrifying video of some violent turbulence on a plane that is going around right now, because well, it's terrifying. (I know I said terrifying twice, but this video deserves it. Possibly the worst flight ever was an ALK Airlines flight Boeing 737 going from Kosovo to Switzerland where at one point, the turbulence got so bad that a flight attendant crashed into the roof. Yep, the roof of the plane. Passenger Mirjeta Basha managed to capture the moment and well, here it is. Warning - this might make people's fear of flying even worse. The video shows the powerful jolt that threw the flight attendant into the roof of the aircraft. The fear among all the people aboard can also be seen. Reportedly, a few passengers were even hospitalized after the flight landed. Talking to a Swiss paper, Basha said, “People started screaming and crying. I thought we all had to die. My husband has scalded his neck.” A statement from the airport authorities said, “The flight from Pristina with airline ALK experienced turbulence in the air around 20 minutes before landing. The pilot alerted handling agents so that the airport firemen were immediately on the scene when the plane arrived. The aircraft continued for a normal landing, no emergency was declared. Medical assistance was requested after landing, two passengers needed medical assessment. No seats were ripped off at all.”
  4. The wonderful and magical power that parents possess, lies in their selfless love and their acceptance of us, the way we are. A good parent is not someone who just splurges on you, but is someone who lets you believe that they are not judgemental of the primitive choices you make in your life. Howie Dittman, a 44-year-old man living in Pittsburgh is also a parent, but last week, he ended up being the internet's favourite dad. When Howie found out about a pride parade in Pittsburgh and saw his friend volunteering to give 'mom hugs', he decided to do something similar and participated in the parade, offering 'dad hugs' to the kids who were rejected by their own families. He shared his experience and how impactful a small gesture can be. "Imagine that, parents. Imagine that your child feels SO LOST FROM YOU that they sink into the arms of a complete stranger and sob endlessly just because that stranger is wearing a shirt offering hugs from a dad," he wrote. These pictures of Mr Dittman went viral and its been touching and melting very heart on the internet since then. would be remiss if i did not give a shout out to the huge pflag dad marching in the denver pride parade wearing a FREE DAD HUGS shirt, who joyfully gave me my first big, encompassing, father's day dad hug in five entire years — casey mcquiston â¤ï¸ð ON TOUR! (@casey_mcquiston) June 17, 2019 Howie Dittman. Everyday hero. â¤https://t.co/lV8hZA9lqk — rebecca (@mamabexx) June 13, 2019 So many people reached out to Howie, thanking him and expressing their love and gratitude, as these pictures spark pure joy! Kindness and love cost you nothing because the best things in the world are not actually bought! Love comes in every shade and as humans, judging anyone, especially the people we love, for who they decide to love is unfair. This dad is 'dad goals' in the truest sense.
  5. Ever wondered why they call it a fitness 'journey'? The obvious answer to it may be because we can't get that dream body overnight. But in all honesty, we all know there is more to it than meets the eye. And this journey, is in many ways, testing and teasing like all the others, and it is as much to do with a healthy 'body image' as it is to do with a healthy body. © Getty Images However, it would be a lie to call this journey regular, because it is certainly not and will never be. The journey to fitness is marked by many challenges, which are physical as well as psychological. The very decision to kickstart a fitness journey deserves many accolades in itself, and then comes in the constant battle we fight with ourselves over shedding those extra kilos and squeezing in another hour of sleep instead. From the dietary adjustments, to other long term compromises we are expected to make and a myriad of other miscellaneous things we are expected to abide by, makes this journey a real struggle. © Getty Images But then there exist some people who show us the real face of a fitness journey at their own expense, and it seems so true, every Indian guy would come to relate to it. Using Arjun Kapoor and weight loss in the same sentence may provoke a lot of you to break into laughter. But, can we spare a moment to consider that every “weight loss journey” is different from the last one you came across? That every individual who is on this journey is making a lot of effort to stop making excuses and charge towards a healthier body. © Twitter Well, if you are looking for an example to guide you on your own journey to a fitter you, then that's the man you should look out for. His isn't the most glitzy fat-to-fab story, it definitely doesn't make for a perfect example of a fitness journey either, and that is exactly what that makes Arjun's journey more real, more believable and therefore more inspiring. We witnessed Arjun Kapoor's drastic body transformation for his debut movie 'Ishaqzaade' back in 2012. When, as an aspiring actor, Arjun weighed 140 kgs, the dream of being a Bollywood actor seemed too far-fetched for him. But it was reportedly during his time as an assistant director for Nikkhil Advani's 2007 film 'Salaam-E-Ishq', that Salman Khan inspired him to lose weight, after which Salman allegedly also supervised Arjun's training sessions. Over the next three years, Arjun lost close to 50 kg before his big launch. © Instagram But hours ago, Arjun revealed his fitness journey over the years, and how his struggles with obesity have been a constant in his life since he was a child. Owing to many mental and personal reasons that always came in his way one way or another, Arjun has constantly battled with the weighing scale over the years. But nothing could make him give it all up, not when he knew what he is capable of. Read about his journey here. View this post on Instagram It's been a tough journey for me ever since I was a kid when it comes to my battle with obesity. Everyone has their own struggles I have had and continue to have mine. But the whole point of life is that we fall, we get back up and try again... efforts will pay off eventually if not today then in a week month or even a year... I started training with @shivohamofficial this January and slow and steady we have managed to At least lay a foundation during our prep for Panipat. I vowed never to give up in the 3 years it took me to lose 50kgs when I was 20 years old & I sure as hell won't be giving up and letting go now... keeping the belief is key, u gotta keep at it and one day you will reap the benefits... we all gotta keep the faith and keep at it cause what we do today will echo in time and reflect within us eventually... A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on Jun 17, 2019 at 11:18pm PDT Arjun's earnest and honest ways of always being candid about his weight issues and how he struggles and deals with it, is something most of us will relate to. Getting those 6-pack-abs and chiselled face comes at a cost, but how many people have been completely honest about their backstories, instead of posting daily gym selfies with sappy 'motivational' one-liners? © Instagram But, this guy here, brings forth the real story, and it will do us good to acknowledge it that while we are trying to get fit, it's okay to chase after it at the cost of your mental peace and happiness in general. The idea is to have a healthy body, that's the goal we are after.
  6. Ranveer Singh was at Old Trafford in Manchester for the India vs Pakistan match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Singh was trending throughout the game due to his crazy appearance and even crazier antics. But it is hard not to relate to Ranveer Singh because he is not behaving differently than any other standard Indian cricket fan. Following the game and a mammoth 89-run (DLS) victory for India, Ranveer went on a tweeting spree and it was the ultimate fanboy moment for anyone who grew up in India.

  8. Actors are heroes and idols for their fans who blindly follows their fashion antics, try to impersonate their personality traits and often times even try to follow their principles in real life. Big B aka Amitabh Bachchan is a mega star in his own way, and for decades, he's ruled everyone's hearts as well as the screens. Recently, when he shared a piece of information regarding a promise he kept, social media went abuzz with praises for him. Big B paid off loans for 2100 farmers from Bihar. "A promise made done... the farmers from Bihar that had outstanding loans, picked 2,100 of them and paid off their amount with a OTS (One Time Settlement) with the bank...called some of them over to Janak and personally gave it to them at the hands of Shweta and Abhishek," he mentioned on his blog. © Twitter © Twitter Last year, he helped over a thousand farmers in UP and cleared off their loans. He also mentioned what his other promise is. “To the family and wives of the brave hearts that sacrificed their lives for the country, at Pulwama, a small gesture of financial aid ... true 'shaheeds'.” It is wonderful when celebrities you admire set a great example by extending help in any way. He's truly the 'shehenshah' of Bollywood and of our hearts.
  9. Hi, I'm 23 and I have only travelled to like 3 countries in my life. That's it. But, a 21-year-old just became the youngest person ever to travel to every single country in the world. Recently, Lexie Alford managed to reach probably the most difficult country to step in - North Korea - and completed her mission of travelling across the world's 196 sovereign nations. View this post on Instagram OFFICIALLY TRAVELED TO EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLDð𤯠â â â â â â â â â it's crazy to have years of hard work culminate into one single moment. I'm so grateful to everyone that's helped me get here. The greatest chapter of my life is coming to a close. Cheers to a new beginning ðâ â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â Photos by @thomasbrag A post shared by Lexie Alford (@lexielimitless) on Jun 1, 2019 at 5:27pm PDT Right now, she hasn't officially broken the Guinness World Record as all of her 10,000 pieces of evidence is being verified but I'm guessing she's made it. Turns out, she started on this record-breaking journey without even knowing about it. Since her family owned a travel agency, she has been travelling to new places since she was a kid. She said, “Travel has been a part of my life since before I can remember. My parents would take me out of school and place me on independent study for weeks and months at a time every year.” View this post on Instagram 5 in-person trips to the embassy in Los Angeles, 2 formal interviews, 3 different tour companies/fixers, 2 LOIs, countless phone calls and 6 months later I finally made it to PAKISTAN ðµð° â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â The media always exaggerates and blows out of proportion but so far I can't get enough of this incredible country! Every day has brought not only new tastes & sights but also a renewed sense of appreciation for the kindness of people in faraway places. Even this truck driver's nice way of telling me to move out of the way was to just start driving forward slowly ðâ â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â â Thank you so much @cpicglobal for making this dream come true for me! A post shared by Lexie Alford (@lexielimitless) on Apr 27, 2019 at 11:26pm PDT She added, “My parents placed a lot of importance on exposing me to every way of life around the world and that had a very profound impact on the person I am today. I've always had a curiosity about other people's ways of life and how they find happiness.” View this post on Instagram Roasting marshmallows over the DOOR TO HELL ð¥ â â â â â â â â Last week I was camping in the middle of nowhere with @fearlessandfar & a bunch of drunk Russian speaking men. Being fed way too much food from the kindest locals and running around this pit of fire was definitely one of the most epic & memorable nights of my life.

Have you ever seen anything like this before?? 𤯠#Turkmenistan A post shared by Lexie Alford (@lexielimitless) on Mar 26, 2019 at 2:00pm PDT She seriously went after the record just a couple of years ago when she turned 18. She realized she had already been to 72 countries and decided to take up the challenge and break the record. She said, “The very first time I thought about breaking the world record was in October 2016 in my home, California. I graduated from high school two years early and had gotten an associate's degree from a local college. I was ready to start my gap year when I dropped the idea of going back to school and began to pursue the record full-time.” And, she pays for everything herself as well: “I always knew I wanted to take time off to travel so I've been working every job I could find and saving since I was 12-years-old.” View this post on Instagram Curious girl ð A post shared by Lexie Alford (@lexielimitless) on Oct 23, 2018 at 10:30am PDT She also talked about how she manages her finances so she can go to new places and have new experiences. She said, “I do a lot of research in advance to find the best deals, utilize points and miles for my flights, stay in cheap accommodation like hostels or create content for hotels in exchange for accommodation. I've also made sure to keep my monthly overhead as low as possible by living at home with my parents, I don't have a car payment or student debt and I don't spend my money on unnecessary material possessions.” (Well, these are some useful tips for everyone with 'wanderlust' in their Instagram bios) View this post on Instagram Wakanda sunsets ðâ â â â â â â â â How many photos do you have on your camera roll?

  10. Whether for summer vacations or weekend getaways, it's easy to pack your whole world and then ultimately unpack because your bag was overstuffed. In the midst of all this hassle, chances are you will miss out on packing your grooming essentials. Following a daily regimen can be hard and hence, to keep it simple and time-saving for you, here are all the basic things to add to your travel bag when you are on to go: 1. Face Wipes © Getty Images While on a vacay, chances are your skin could start looking dull, dry and dehydrated. Carrying a pack of face wipes can cleanse your face in seconds, without making you feel the need to rush to the washroom. These are quite useful and can steer clear of the grime accumulated on your face. 2. Mouthwash © Getty Images A mouthwash comes handy during long journeys. No, we are not saying you don't add a toothbrush but carrying a mouthwash helps when you are short on time. All you need to do is swish it in your mouth and feel fresh instantly. 3. Lip Balm © Getty Images Chugging water can fight dehydration but keeping a lip balm will help your lips revive if they are chapped during the journey. Most lip balms come in small packaging and hence it's important to stow it in your kit. 4. Moisturiser © Getty Images A small and sturdy bottle of moisturiser for your face is a travel must-have. It reduces the glaring signs of fatigue and the lightweight formula will instantly energise your face. It's a great deal to bank on! 5. Battery Operated Razor © Getty Images An electric, battery-operated razor will prove beneficial, not just in your travel kit, but also in your grooming arsenal. It's definitely a hassle-free choice and an ideal swap for shaving creams that you can rely on while travelling. 6. Face Wash And Scrub © Getty Images We don't want you to follow a long regime while you wish to enjoy the trip. So, get your hands on a two in one product that helps fight dead skin cells and keeps your skin smooth and clean with its goodness. Thank us later! 7. Carry An Antiperspirant Deodorant © Getty Images Adding a deodorant to your travel kit is obvious but instead of carrying a gigantic bottle, opt for a mini size, anti-perspirant deodorant that fits in your small travel bag. There are a plethora of pocket deodorants available and trust us, they are the best suitable alternative to own!

Wear it over bright coloured shorts for an ideal easy style statement during the hottest summer days. 2. Redo The Semi-Formal Look © Getty Images Wearing a three-piece suit for a boardroom meeting in summers is one of the trickiest style moves. Instead of opting for heavy woven fabrics, go light in this weather. Wear an unstructured blazer made from cotton-blend or linen and layer it over a short-sleeved oxford or your favourite summer tee. 3. Loafer Liners Are Much Needed © Getty Images If you thought that sprinkling some talcum powder in your shoes will keep your feet sweat-free, you are highly mistaken.

Cropped Trousers © Instagram/Shahid Kapoor When you need something smarter and also comfortable this summer, opt for cropped trousers, crafted from cotton or linen fabric. These pants will step up your style as you pair them with a T-shirt or a button-down shirt. 5. Swap Your Sneakers For Espadrilles © Getty Images Give your brogues and sneakers a break. Espadrilles are a summer essential that ensure your feet breathe. Believe us, they are as breezy as your flip flops and you can wear them without being plagued with an unsavoury odour. 6. Upgrade Your Tee Game © Instagram/Kartik Aaryan A good looking t-shirt forms a cornerstone for a wardrobe and summers are a great time to make a braver fashion choice. Invest in oversized logo t-shirts, colour-block tees or henleys as they are the perfect way to ace any casual look.
  12. When it comes to footwear, there's always a question that lingers around- "How many shoes do I need?"

Well, you can relax now because we've done the legwork and whittled down to 5 essential shoes that you need right away: 1. Suede Loafers © Getty Images Suede loafers have been counted as synonymous with casual dressing. The sleek and smart design, available in darker tones can go a long way.

White Low Top Sneakers © Getty Images White sneakers have already earned their place in the shoe closet, but the latest version of low top sneakers can take your look from sporty to minimal to edgy. The best part? They pair well with everything and yes, with sharp silhouettes too! 3. The Black Oxford © Getty Images The snug fit and clean finish, make the black oxford the most formal pair.

Running Sneakers © Getty Images For a statement street style appearance, a pair of running sneakers crack the fashion code like none other. Choose a style that has minimal branding. Consider bright coloured sneakers, just in case you wish to score extra attention on your shoes than your outfit. 5. Chelsea Boots © Getty Images Be it a lace-up or a desert or Chelsea, boots are a shoe staple for every man. When the mercury levels drop, these shoes, with their edgier aesthetic will be a fashionable choice to own. Invest in a good quality pair, preferably in tan or brown shade. Pull the trousers over the boots for another dollop for fresh style tip.
  13. Grooming down there can be tricky business. It can also be rather intimidating for someone trying to groom down there for the first time. Did you know that there is a list of things that you should keep in mind before you groom down there? And the thing is, these things will make a substantial difference to your grooming routine. 1. Always Disinfect Your Razor/Trimmer Before Use © Getty Images Start with rinsing off the blades with hot water. Then, add a small dollop of dish soap to the blades, and scrub the razor with a toothbrush to remove any grime present. Finish with washing the soap off the razor using hot water. Rinse off the blades with hot water. If you want to go a step further, you could apply a cleaning agent like rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. 2. Start Off With Scissors © Getty Images You can start off with trimming your pubic hair. This not only cuts your time to half in terms of using a trimmer or a razor but also streamlines the approach. 3. It's Best To Keep It Uniform It looks a little funny if you groom down there but let your chest hair be or the other way. If you've booked yourself a grooming session or scheduled time for it at home, make sure you go all the way. 4. Take A Shower Before © Getty Images Taking a shower helps in more ways than one. Firstly, it makes the whole process hassle-free and secondly, the after shave skin will be extremely smooth to touch. 5. Use Rash Creams Generously © Getty Images Rash creams are a blessing to humanity in general. Two pumps of a rash cream can save you from itching and razor burns later. 6. Use Gel-Based Razors © Getty Images If you prefer razors to clean up, you should probably prefer gel-based razor that comes with lubrication with aloe vera or any other soothing agent that quickens the process of cleaning down there.
  14. Back in time, taking a plunge into the cold water only meant complaining. But, in 2019, we are in favour of icy, cold water showers.

Well, the icy blast of cold showers will earn you benefits that you never knew before. Take a look! 1. Breathe easy Getty Images Sometimes when you get into the shower, you certainly feel breathless.

Muscle Recovery Getty Images Taking cold showers is quite a famous technique in athletes. Blood circulation in the body improves, giving your muscles an opportunity to recover from the night soreness. 3. Improved metabolism Getty Images Another amazing benefit of taking cold showers is that it boosts your metabolism and ultimately helps you lose weight. The healthy fat inside your body works a great deal when given a chance to enter into cold showers, Now, who doesn't wish to have a hot, steamy body? 4. Staying alert Getty Images The shock of cold water instantly revives your body from the sleepy state. Cold water, alongside energising your body, also helps in higher state of alertness. This benefit is literally what we need in our daily lives. 5. Improved hair and skin condition Getty Images Research says that taking cold showers help control loss of natural oils. Cold showers are an anti-ageing process that don't make the natural oils disappear. In fact, they grant us with smoother skin and shinier hair! 6. Prevent Varicose Veins Getty Images Majorly noticed in elder citizens, Varicose Veins take place in our legs and they are quite a common sign of ageing. Cold water can reverse the whole process and stimulate the muscles. 7.

Taking cold showers leads to producing the right amount of testosterone. No more 'oops' situations for you!
  15. What do you think is going on, when you realise that someone broke into your house while you were away? Of course, you will think it was burglary. I am sure no thief will break into your house to clean your bathroom or bedroom, right? But, that's exactly what happened with Nate Roman, a guy from Massachusetts. 44-year-old Nate, who lives with his 5-year-old son, returned home one day to realise that someone had broken into his house. Reportedly, the back door of his house was open or as he feels he might have forgotten to lock it. Scared of what he will find inside his house, Nate walked inside silently and got one of the biggest shocks of his life. Getty Images Turns out, the stranger who broke into his house didn't steal anything. Instead, the burglar cleaned the whole house. From making the beds, vaccuming the rugs, scrubbing the toilets, cleaning the bathrooms, bedrooms to arranging his son's soft toys, the thief brought the home back to its perfect condition. What's more, the intruder even left toilet paper roses for the owner. Honeslty, this kind of burglar is every desi mom's dream intruder. While this entire incident turned out to be a case of 'no stealing just cleaning for free' service for Nate, it's still very creepy. But, Nate has a theory. He feels it must have been a housekeeping service that may have gone to the wrong adress (maybe because of the perfect toilet paper rose origami). It kind of does make sense because no thief will waste his time cleaning the whole house for free, and leave a toilet paper rose too. Reportedly, the cops are looking for this mystery house cleaner. Seriously, this is a bigger plot twist than 'Game of Thrones' finale. Let's be honest, we all want a burglar like him in our lives. I mean, things can't get any better than this.
  16. Whether it's a 10-km ride to your office or a 1000-km ride to Ladakh, if you have a high-end good looking bike, it doesn't hurt to match by cleaning up well. Now, here's the thing: buying the right accessories not only makes you look the part of a pro-rider but also equips you with the comfort to battle the slowest of jams, the roughest of terrains, and the harshest of weathers. Here's your definitive guide to buying accessories that will make heads turn on the highway 1. Helmets © Getty Images At the cost of sounding like your friendly local traffic cop, wearing a helmet while riding is not an option. What is an option, however, is looking good in that protective gear you need. Choosing the right helmet can help you not only make your ride safe and comfortable but can turn heads and in a good way! The trick is to get the colour right; instead of a flashy yellow helmet, go for sturdy earth tones with your Royal Enfield. It helps to get the style right too. Usually heavy bikes are to be accompanied by open face helmets while street-style helmets go better with sport-bikes. It is always advisable to buy from official retailers that guarantee the right style, comfort, and quality. 2. Jackets © Getty Images Bike jackets can be either leather or fabric-based. While leather helps you look the way you'd expect a classic “biker” to look, high-quality fabrics are able to resist abrasion as strongly as leather, and new materials are equipped with Gore-Tex or other water-resistant membranes capable of keeping you dry in bad weather. Fabric-based jackets are affordable as well. Again, it is essential to get the right colour. The idea is to keep it classy, and not flashy at the same time. 3. Pants © Getty Images Contrary to popular belief, regular jeans will not protect you in an accident. It is always advisable to buy proper riding pants that offer the right comfort and protection. Much like jackets, pants can be either leather or fabric based. They should fit like a glove, but at the same time should be comfortable as well. Always test your pants out on a bike, what might work well standing, might not work great on a 7-hour road trip. 4. Gloves © Getty Images Bike gloves should fully cover your fingers, palm, and your wrists. Gloves should reach over or under your jacket leaving no skin exposed. Black is the safe colour here, but textured highlights can provide the right amount of flash in your otherwise overall classy look. What is most important is that the gloves fit well and provide you with enough strength to not only handle well but survive the unfortunate fall with zero scratches.
  17. Coming from a small village of Kheri Kalan in the suburb of Faridabad, Sargar 'The Sher' Narwat is undefeated in the super welterweight category and boasts a record of 9 wins, 0 losses and 1 draw with a knockout rate of 30%. One to consider winning and losing is part of the game Narwat is a believer of continuous training and constantly putting in his best effort in practice. “It is only because of my dedication and passion for boxing that I am undefeated right now,” he says. In his journey to national and eventually international glory, Narwat has received a lot of support from nation, especially ever since one of his amateur bouts went viral on social media and people began to take notice of the pugilist. “I considered myself to be extremely lucky to have the support of so many boxing fans of India. While it adds a lot of pressure on me to perform better inside the ring, it also gives me great honour to represent my country in grand, international events.” View this post on Instagram When you win, say nothing, when you lose, say less.” @megaboxing_in @royalsportspromotions @nitesh_narwat @lzpromotions @ankitnarwatphotography @siddhantkapoor_photography #theshernarwat #sagarnarwatboxer #india #crossfit #crossfitboys #backontrack #crazyfrmypassion #usaboxing #bigaim #hardwork #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #athlete #strength #beliveinhardwork #boxingtraning #boxinglegend #boxinghype #boxeo #boxinglife #boxinggym #knockout #sport #ko #taekwondo #kickboxing #jiujitsu #muaythai #fightnight A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on May 5, 2019 at 7:18am PDT Ever since turning pro, Narwat has played in several Boxing leagues in India, Super Boxing League being one of his first. “During my tenure with SBL, one of my fights was against a great Army boxer who had won a lot of professional matches in the past while I was a complete nobody at the time,” Narwat recalls. After dodging his massive swings and throwing timely punches while constantly trying to calm my nerves, I was finally able to beat him. That is when I got the name 'The Sher'”. “I love this name that the boxing brethren has given me and I hope to continue to do justice to it in the future.” Currently, Narwat is under contract with Mega Boxing, India's first Professional Boxing Intellectual Property, which is recognised by the World Boxing Organization (WBO) with an aim to position professional boxing as a premium sporting entertainment entity and under the guidance of the world class coaching the organisation provides, is training to contest for the World Championship title in super welterweight category that currently rests with Mexico's Jaime Munguia. View this post on Instagram @lzpromotions and @sagarnarwatboxer are pleased to announce an USA management contract. Super Boxing League Middleweight Champion Sagar will continue to fight in the SBL. He brings a perfect nine fight unbeaten Professional record, ranked #1 Super Welterweight in India and an impressive amateur background with competition wins all over the world! @proboxtko @lzpromotions are pleased to be working with Sagar, the SBL @billdosanjh and India Boxing. Taking Boxing and Sports to #1 Globally Together #ð®ð³ GTown #boxing #news #jat #jaat #life #theshernarwat #sagarnarwatboxer #bullet #delhi #usa A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on Feb 22, 2019 at 8:06am PST Narwat sees a lot of potential in the younger kids of his village as boxers, and has taken upon himself to train them to one day become world class fighters. “Every day, I train the kids of my village both in the morning and the evening. Kids in my village have always wanted to box. Back when I was their age, we have no boxing rings or academies. We used to get together at any 'chowki' and begin sparring. If under such untrained conditions, boxers from Kheri Kalan have gone to do so well. Imagine what can happen if they are trained professionally!” View this post on Instagram @singhvijender @pardeepkharera1 @roshan5256 @sachin_dekwal_official #team #Roshan A post shared by Sagar Narwat ð®ð³ (@sagarnarwatboxer) on Dec 14, 2017 at 7:57am PST Even though, the better half of Narwat's day is spent working with the kids, his vision of becoming the greatest boxer in the world remains unshaken. “I train the young fighters every morning and evening to the best of my abilities and I train myself in between the sessions, in the afternoon.” “Boxing is such a game that the day your training gets flawed and you stop giving your 100% in the ring, the next aspiring boxer will replace you within a split second. Even if I do not have a match scheduled for the next day or the next week, my training continues with the same intensity.” He finally urges the upcoming boxers to never settle. “If you've won a match, great. Move on to the next one where the stakes are higher. People get way too relaxed after winning a bout. they become casual about their training, the food they eat. Never be satisfied with what you have achieved till now, always reach for the stars.”
  18. Dates aren't always on the weekend. And a typical workweek will never care for your love life. So, if you do manage to find the time to set a date without hindering your work deadlines, kudos to you! But here's the thing, the office AC can only do so much to keep you looking fresh through your 8-hour grind or even after. If you want to look fresh like you've stepped out of a salon without actually going to one, you should probably read further. Looking fresh and cleaning up well goes on to show that you've made some effort and is also further appreciated. You might even find your date dropping a compliment or two. So, here are 5 products that every man should have in their arsenal to fight the everyday grind for date nights: 1. Lip Balm © Nykaa The lip balm is a moisturizing agent that leaves your lips fresh and healthy looking. Also, it is a universally acknowledged fact that no one wants to kiss a pair of chapped lips. I'm sure you secretly agree with this too. Which leaves us to this conclusion: your lips need a balm to moisturize. 2. Dry Shampoo © Nykaa A weapon you could use for days when your hair is too oily to style and you don't have time to shampoo. Dry shampoo absorbs the excess oil and leaves your hair with the much-needed volume. 3. Concealer © Nykaa A must-have cosmetic that comes in handy in saving you in times of crises. Whether it's a hickey on your neck that needs to hide before an official meeting or a pimple on your face right before date night or even dark circles for that matter! This product, upon generous use, conceals it all. 4. Hand Cream © Nykaa Have you wondered why your girl's hands are so soft to touch? No one wants to hold hands that are scaly and unpleasant to touch. Hand lotion is crucial in keeping the softness intact since the skin on your hands is devoid from the production of sebum oil (a natural skin moisturizer). 5. BB Cream © Nykaa Saving your skin from the harmful rays of the sun is super important. A BB cream has a good SPF along with a pigmented cream that covers uneven skin tone and scars efficiently.
  19. There was a time (not so long ago) when men could only choose between boxers or briefs while shopping for underwear. This decision is not as straightforward as it first appears, as each style comes with its own distinct set of pros and cons. However, times have changed, and the stylish gentleman can now enjoy the best features of both boxers and briefs in one style - the boxer brief! As such, if you're still set in your ways when it comes to the contents of your underwear drawer, here are five reasons why you should be making the switch to boxer briefs ASAP! Reason 1: To Get That Much-Needed Support © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment The best briefs for men are popular for being supremely supportive, keeping everything in place without the hassle of excess fabric bunching up underneath your trousers. Boxer briefs match their snug fit, providing ample support and ensuring total comfort for your manhood even if you're on the move all day long. Additionally, they offer greater coverage, which makes them all the more suitable for the more modest gentleman. Reason 2: To Get Just The Right Amount Of Coverage © Shutterstock If you're someone who doesn't usually wear formal trousers of slim-fit jeans, boxers are probably your preferred choice. Not only do they offer breathability, they're also far less revealing than any other style. However, all that extra room comes at a price, because even the best boxers for men have a tendency to bunch up or ride up annoyingly. Boxer briefs, on the other hand, preserve your modesty in a more close-fitting manner, so there's no need to constantly adjust and align them! Reason 3: To Enjoy Unmatched Functionality © Pexels What do you look for when you are underwear shopping? Some tend to go for support, while others prioritise comfort and breathability. The best underwear for men offers all that and much more, shielding your privates from public view while keeping them comfortable all day long. As an added bonus, the extra fabric between your thighs also plays an important role in avoiding any unpleasant rubbing or chafing! Reason 4: To Appreciate Unparalleled Versatility © Pixabay You have different outfits that you wear for different occasions, which would look incredibly out of place if you mixed them up. For example, you wouldn't wear your finest sherwani to work, or wear a suit to the gym, right? However, their multiple virtues make boxer briefs the go-to underwear style for a variety of situations. From gym gear to formal clothes (and everything in between), you can't go wrong with boxer briefs! Reason 5: To Enhance Your Own Appeal © Wikimedia Commons Your body type plays a crucial role in deciding the best underwear style for you, which is why boxers briefs are such a smart fashion choice. The best boxer briefs for men are universally flattering, lending your appearance the modesty of boxers, and the snug fit of the briefs. They're a great choice for men who want to flaunt their well-toned legs, while those who want to hide their extra weight can also take advantage of the slimming effect provided by dark-hued boxer briefs.
  20. We all have dreaded exams throughout our lives. Alright, at least most of us have dreaded examinations of any sort for a good part of our lives. But matters only got worse when we were in class 10th and 12th. The kind of accumulative pressure (but mostly expectations) from peers, family, relatives, neighbours, to even the house help, milkman and sometimes, the school caretaker, amongst many others is something that most children at that 'tender' age are not able to handle. © Getty Images As if preparing and sitting for the examinations were not enough, we even had to deal with the nasty results that haunted us even in our dreams. (Don't tell us you haven't ever had one of those). However, while students (and parents) can deal with most kinds of mess related to our report cards, the one thing that was a plain red flag was getting an 'F', that is, failing. Well, as you have already guessed from the headline of this article, this nightmare came true for hundreds of 10th class students in Gujarat yesterday. © Getty Images Out of the 8,22,823 students who appeared for the class 10th board examinations conducted by the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) earlier in March, only 5,51,023 students have managed to clear the exams. If reports are to be believed, results show that not even a single student from close to 63 schools in the state have been able to clear the Secondary School Certificate examinations. The overall pass percentage came to 66.97 per cent, which was slightly lower than 67.5 per cent of last year. © Getty Images We can't even imagine what the students and their parents must be going through right now, but this also throws light on the harsh reality of the sad state of our education system in many parts of the country, which requires better and deeper intervention at the earliest.
  21. Over the years, the world of cricket has enthralled fans with numerous competitions. From day-night Tests to the advent of T20 cricket, the sport continues to thrive with its continuous evolution to cater to the ever-increasing fan-following. But, amongst the multiple events that cricket has to offer, nothing comes close to the fanfare or popularity of the ICC World Cup. One of the highly-anticipated sporting events in the world, the quadrennial cricket event garners public interest and captures the imagination of enthusiasts like no other. Four years after the first-ever ODI match was played, the organisers blessed the cricket fans with the maiden World Cup that was held in England in 1975. Since then, there has been no turning back for this mega event. And, this year's tourney promises to be no different. © Reuters Slated to begin from 30th May, the twelfth edition of the ICC spectacle promises to be an exciting affair with the participating nations vying for cricket's biggest honour. The mother of all tournaments (as one might call it), this year's World Cup will witness 10 teams competing in a single group. Each team will play with the other nine sides once, and the top four at the end of the group stage will progress to the semifinals. With the World Cup just 10 days away, cricket fans have already begun pledging their allegiances to their favourite teams. From casual banter in the office to heated dinners at home, the World Cup is undoubtedly the hottest topic at the moment. But, as we count down the days for this year's ICC spectacle, here's a look at some crazy records that stand tall at the World Cup: Most Individual Runs © Reuters No player has scored more runs at the Cricket World Cup than Sachin Tendulkar; or even come close for that matter. He scored 2,278 runs at the tournament – more than 500 more than his nearest rival – at an average of 56.95. His highest score at the World Cup came against Namibia in 2003 when he hit 152, but it was his runs in the 2011 World Cup which inspired India to glory. India will be hoping the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli can emulate the Little Master in England & Wales this year. Most Wickets © Reuters Glenn McGrath lifted the coveted trophy three times and took more wickets than anyone else in the history of the tournament; it's fair to say that the Aussie great had a huge impact at the ICC World Cup. Between his debut at the tournament in 1996 and his final appearance in 2007, McGrath claimed 71 wickets in 39 games. He may have been nearing the end of his career, but his most prolific World Cup came in 2007 where he took 26 wickets - a tournament-best tally for most wickets at a single edition of the World Cup. Most Sixes © Reuters There is no surprise to see the record for the most sixes slammed at a World Cup being shared by swashbuckling AB de Villiers and marauding Chris Gayle. Gayle hit 26 of these sixes in the last World Cup in 2015, most of which were scored in his record-breaking innings against Zimbabwe. With AB de Villiers announcing his retirement in 2018, it has provided Gayle with the opportunity to go past his South African counterpart in this year's World Cup. Most Wickets In Consecutive Balls © Reuters Lasith Malinga could very well be playing his last World Cup this year, but, when he retires, the Sri Lankan great would surely be proud of his legacy at the mega event. Amongst his numerous records in international cricket, Malinga's devastating spell against South Africa at the 2007 World Cup remains one of our fondest memories of the right-arm seamer. One of the all-time classic World Cup matches, the clash between Sri Lanka and South Africa saw Malinga running through the Proteas batting order. Cruising to victory, the Proteas were just four runs away from beating the Lankans when Malinga set a new World Cup record with 4 wickets in 4 balls. While South Africa managed to hold their nerve and won the match, Malinga's fiery spell undoubtedly won hearts across the globe. Fastest Double Hundred © Reuters West Indies opener Chris Gayle hit the fastest double century in World Cup history in their victory over Zimbabwe in 2015. Gayle went on to hit a total of 16 sixes in 147 balls before he was out for 215 off the last delivery of his side's innings. The stand of 372 with Marlon Samuels was also a record partnership for any ODI wicket. West Indies amassed 372-2 from their 50 overs, and went on to beat Zimbabwe by 73 runs (D/L). Highest Team Score © Reuters At the 2015 Cricket World Cup, Australia produced a stunning performance to thrash Afghanistan in a record-breaking game. Glenn Maxwell smashed 88 from 45 balls to propel Australia to 417/6 - the highest team score at a World Cup. Other records tumbled, as Australia then went on to bowl Afghanistan out for just 142 in reply. The margin of victory was 275 runs – the highest ever recorded at a World Cup. Highest Successful Run-Chase © Reuters Another classic World Cup encounter came to the fore when England locked horns with minnows Ireland at the 2011 World Cup. Kevin O'Brien hit the fastest century in Cricket World Cup history as Ireland pulled off an astonishing victory over England in Bangalore. His 113 off 63 balls helped Ireland recover from 111-5 to overhaul the target of 328 runs with five balls to spare, making this the highest successful run-chase ever at a World Cup. Most Title Wins © Reuters Last, but surely not the least. Australia doesn't have a challenger when it comes to their rich history at the World Cup. In the 11 World Cups held so far, they have won the tournament on 5 occasions – including three consecutive wins between 1999-2007. They also hold the World Cup record for most match wins (62) and the highest win percentage of 75 per cent. Despite the recent controversy surrounding the reigning champions, they will go into this year's tournament with confidence in the knowledge that history is on their side.

  23. Ajay Devgn's upcoming film 'De De Pyaar De' has been making headlines since the day the makers launched the trailer of the film. Just a day is left to witness the madness that the actor has to offer. The film has a very interesting to take on modern era relationships. So, it's about a man who is 50-years-old dating a girl half his age. Yes, that's the plot. You might have seen the trailer and must have thought the story is about two women eyeing a man. Well, then you are probably wrong. So, MensXP got a chance to meet Ajay while was he is in the capital promoting his film, 'De De Pyaar De'. When we told that we really liked the trailer and it does have the humour element, he told us that the movie also has a matured storyline. "The film is just not about humour, it's a nice drama also. The film has a mature storyline and character are also way too matured characters. It says a lot which you might not expect out of the film. So, many things in the film have been said in a lighter vein but that will surely make you think of what's happening in the society," said Ajay.

He has indeed aged like fine wine. He is 50 but his fitness levels are that of a 20-something guy. For those who have known him would know that Ajay has always been fit. Being fit doesn't mean flaunting your chiselled abs all the time; it's way beyond that. We asked about how does he manage to look this fit at the age of 50. He told us, "I do nothing. I have a clean diet but I do cheat a lot. I eat whatever I feel like sometimes. When you start thinking that you have to be on a strict diet, you always tend to break it. Cheat once or twice a week. It shouldn't be just a cheat meal but cheat days. It's all fit and fine till the time you have incorporated physical training into your daily routine be it Yoga or Cardio or Weight Training. I don't have a routine. It's been like 15 days I haven't gone to the gym. I feel like I am gaining weight. As soon as I am done with the promotions, I will hit the gym. The whole idea is to get back. At the end of the day, you have to keep your mind sane and healthy." Well, that's what we call being honest. There's no sugar coating here. Further, into the conversation, we dug out the observation by some Twitter users who called the trailer very SEXIST. There were tweets that said that movie doesn't have a strong viewpoint taking into consideration that the movie has two female characters. On this, Ajay told us, "When you would see the film, it's vice-versa. We have two very strong female characters and their point of view holds value. I would say it's more progressive." Yes, the movie is about relationships but Ajay has always avoided being intimate on the big screen. When we asked the actor if there's any particular reason to not kiss on-screen, he said, "We have a section of the audience which really feels that if it's an Ajay film, it would be clean. I don't want them to think that what has he started doing all of a sudden. I don't have a problem with it and I am not against it but for us, it doesn't work. We have the younger generation to do it and they are doing it." The conversation then panned to the whole idea of whether the society is ready to accept such a relationship in the real case scenario. Answering to our query, "It's changing and whatever you are trying to say is what the film is about and is trying to convey." In the film, Tabu plays his ex-wife and people have loved their scenes in the trailer. We asked him how has his relationship with Tabu evolved in all these years. "Mine and Tabu's relationship cannot evolve because of the fact we have known each other from the college days. We have been friends and it has nothing to do with films. The relationship that we formed in good old days, it's still the same," told Ajay. Ajay's son Yug has started training and his video went viral on the internet. We asked about Yug and daughter Nysa's inclination towards fitness. Replying to our question, "Yug trains everyday. Earlier, he used to like all those burgers and pizzas. Now, he is the one who says that 'I will be clean in a few days'. Imagine an 8-year-old saying this. Nysa is not too much into fitness, but she stays on a healthy diet."

A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on Sep 13, 2018 at 5:56am PDT Then, we asked Ajay if he is interested in joining politics just like his contemporaries. Well, his answer is a big NO. Ajay told us, "Zero politics for me. I don't understand it. I am cut for it and I don't like going out much. I don't like interactions that much so I believe I can't be a part of politics." Last but not the least, we asked him about an article which claimed that he wanted his love story with Kajol should be made into a film. He told us, "I told them that there's no great story in my life that can become a film." View this post on Instagram By Popular Demand. A post shared by Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) on Aug 5, 2018 at 11:15pm PDT Before we finally said goodbye to Ajay, we wanted to inquire if he would also like to tap into the market of the web series. On this, he said, "As a production, we have already tapped into the web space. As an actor, if I find something great, then why not?" Would you want to see Ajay Devgn doing a web series?

  24. It's pretty hard to keep up with acquisitions in the tech world. A lot of companies change hands constantly, so it becomes very difficult to keep a track of everything that's happening. And in Apple's case, it's even more complex, because it's picking up companies all the time and Apple doesn't always tell the world when it buys another company. According to Tim Cook, Apple is always on the lookout for new companies. In fact, he told CNBC last week that Apple purchases a new company every two to three weeks on average. Yes, that's a lot of companies. © Reuters Cook noted that Apple bought between 20 to 25 companies in the last six months alone. Of course, not all of them are huge acquisitions. In fact, you might not even recognize some of the companies. But who's going to stop Apple from throwing all the money? It's said to be sitting on over $200 billion of cash after all. Anyway, here's a short list of companies Apple has acquired since November: · Laserlike · Stamplay · PullString · DataTiger · Platoon · Silk Labs Well, let's hope Apple will end up acquiring some good companies and come up with more innovative products for us consumers.
