  1. In the previous article, I shared some uncomfortable truths one should know before they decide to get on a journey to get shredded to the bone. As there are too many pointers on the same, I decided to break this series down into two parts. Let's continue: 6. You Will Have To Skip Your Favorite Foods © Getty Images That extra bite of food, that piece of cake when a co-worker is celebrating their birthday, that lazy office Friday afternoon when everyone decides to order pizza, you will have to give it a skip. Yes, that will become all the more non-negotiable as you get leaner and leaner. Two main reasons for that are because these foods are high in energy density and rich in calories. Another one is that you will not be able to stop at a small serving size. 7. Hunger Will Be A Constant As you diet further and further, your leptin aka the satiety hormone goes for a toss. Meaning, you won't feel full on eating food very easily. To add to this misery, ghrelin aka the hunger hormone will shoot up keeping the feeling of void and hunger a constant. Your food will not fill you up and your body will signal that you are hunger. Like I told in the previous part, this is because your body wants you to survive for longer and hence storing body fat is a priority. 8. Your Sleep Cycles Will Get Disturbed © Getty Images As you are constantly hungry, irritable, low on energy; your sleep cycles are likely to get affected by this as well. Disturbed sleeping pattern and hours of constant sleep being reduced as the weeks go on are a common occurrence even for athletes doing a contest prep under the best of the coaches in the world. 9. Your Training Will Suffer As your energy levels and sleep cycles go for a toss, the immediate next thing to be affected by these is your training. You will observe that you need to rest longer between sets to recover, you would not be motivated to train, your energy levels in the gym will take a deep dive, and you would drop poundage on the bar as well. All these will happen which will add a tiny bit to the increasing frustration. 10. Stress © Getty Images The nine pointers that I have mentioned in this series all have one thing in common, they all add stress. Your stress levels will shoot up during the diet. And it may have some negative effects on your social, physical, as well as mental health. Your behaviour may take a turn for the worse and you may be moody and highly irritable during this phase. You may end up pissing others around you as for them, your abs are not really that important, to begin with. Now, the point of this series is not to discourage you from getting leaner and getting to single digits of body fat. Flashing abs is abso-fucking-lutely awesome! All I am trying to do is to make you aware of the negatives that come along with it and it'll help you decide that when is the right time in your schedule to diet to get to such leaner levels when you will be as irritable and as moody as a hormonal teenager.

  2. If waking up in the morning and finding pimples on your face is a recurrent eventuality in your life, and if you've tried all possible anti-acne products to get rid of your pimples, you need to focus on other reasons that are causing these pimples. Besides being disposed to sensitive skin, there are other unforeseen factors that could be causing your pimples. Some of these could be: 1. Your Tendency To Touch Your Face Might Make Your Breakouts Worse © Getty Images While it might be tempting, it's not a great idea to play with your face throughout the day. Chances are picking your pimples could make them red leaving a scar behind. Also, remember to never pop that pimple because extracting the pus out of your pore could run the risk of pushing the bacteria deeper and making the problem worse. Besides, all the times at work when you rest your hand on the chin while sitting at your desk can transfer bacteria from your hand onto your face. Use a pimple-patch to cover pimples if you have an uncontrollable urge to touch newly formed zits. 2. Stress Breeds Pimples © Getty Images These two might seem completely unrelated but stress triggers acne. Pressure-filled situations make your skin produces stress hormones, like cortisol, that stimulates oil glands to make testosterone which in return increases oil production and clogs your pores which translates to more breakouts. Working out regularly and taking time off your busy schedule are things will help you release stress and subsequently the cluster of pimples. 3. Your Smoking Habit Is Also Causing A Lot Of Pimples © Getty Images Lighting a cigarette decreases the oxygen supply to your skin. Smoking not only increases the chances of cancer but also causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin that leads to wrinkles and increased pore size. The carcinogens in the smoke also irritate your skin and dry it out, triggering it to produce more oil and, possibly, more breakouts. The obvious solution to getting fewer pimples is nixing smoking. Trust us, it's not helping you. 4. The Food That You Eat Can Cause Acne © Getty Images Tomatoes and peppers are two common ingredients in spicy foods that contain acidic lycopene. This is an irritant that can trigger breakouts around the mouth. However, it's not just spicy food that can trouble your skin. Certain people have a strong reaction to dairy, gluten, or other types of foods. It really depends on what suits you and what doesn't. 5. Post-Workout Neglect Trigger Body Breakouts © Getty Images Skipping the shower right after working out allows the dirt, bacteria, oil, and sweat to seep into your pores and cause breakouts. If the commute from the gym to your place is long, get face wipes. It does damage control and makes us not showering immediately after. 6. The Ingredients In Your Skincare Might Be Causing Breakouts © Getty Images Read your labels. We know this is easier said than done but if you don't know what to look for, a good place to start would be sticking to products labelled “noncomedogenic,” which means it has been specifically formulated not to clog your pores. That said, if you've tried all the above and your breakouts continue to worsen, make an appointment with your dermatologist to see if you could be allergic to another ingredient in any of the products you use. 7. Your Face Scrub Might Be Causing Harm To Your Face © Getty Images Rough exfoliants like face scrubs, loofahs, or cleansing brushes are only going to worsen your breakouts. The idea here is to repair your skin's protective barrier to keep bacteria at bay. If your skin is sensitive and acne prone, stick to a mild face that gently washes your face.
  3. Malai is a cooking ingredient that you all must be familiar with. It's the creamy substance that's produced after heating non-homogenized whole milk to boiling point for about one hour and then allowing it to cool. The thick yellowish layer of fat that rises to the surface, which is skimmed off and use for other dairy food is your basic malai. However, instead of eating it and using it in other dishes, you can also apply it on your face because there are tonnes of benefits of this dairy product for your skin: 1. Malai Softens The Skin © Thinkstock/Getty Images Malai's smooth texture softens dried skin by rejuvenating the skin cells. Wear malai on the face as a mask or mix the malai with milk and turmeric for a compact mask. 2. Malai Tightens Pores © Thinkstock/Getty Images Besides removing dirt from skin, malai can also tighten the pores, so if you have troubles like acne caused by loose pores, applying malai for about 15 minutes tightens the pores. 3. Malai Brightens The Skin © Thinkstock/Getty Images Malai can brighten the skin upon regular application. For a weekly mask: mix malai with a few drops of lemon juice and apply it on the skin for about 15 minutes. 4. Malai Removes Tan © Thinkstock/Getty Images To get rid of the tan, apply malai on your face and allow it to stay for a while. Rinse it with water. A thick paste of malai and besan will give you better results.
  4. Men with round facial features sometimes face problems like a double chin or a less desired face shape. They can benefit from facial hair, and a full grown beard can, in fact, provide a fine hard structure along a sharp jawline by increasing the height of the face. Growing a beard with angular edges or growing a strong circle goatee can elongate the shape and give the appearance of a more chiselled jaw. So here are some of the beards that you could try to get fine jaw line without any signs of the face fat. 1. The Inverted T-Beard © MensXP Disconnected beard is defined by a floating moustache and a high chin hair growth resembling an inverted T. Inverted T beards come in many shapes and sizes. You can ask your stylist which one suits you the best. 2. Boxed Beard © MensXP Boxed beards are trimmed alternatives to Full Beards. They're the best option for those who want a classic beard style but have an aversion to the Full Beard's excessive volume. 3. Pointed Beard © MensXP Pointed Beard is characterized with the fact that the top part above the jawline is usually kept neat and trimmed. Secondly, the length below and on the chin is grown out and groomed into a point. 4. Full Beard © MensXP The full beard is the oldest style in the beard tradition. It covers the entire surface length of of the face and looks au naturel. 5. The Circle Beard © MensXP Circle beards are commonly referred to as goatees, albeit incorrectly.
  5. If you believe in taking care of yourself but don't know how, now is the time to start. You need to have a proper skincare routine in place if you've realized how important male beauty is. You also need products that'll help you look presentable for your dates after a long working day. Here are some products that every man should have in their stash. They make a huge difference in the way you look, trust us. 1. BB Cream © Nykaa We all know how important sunscreen is in saving our faces from the harmful rays of the sun. A BB cream has a good SPF along with a pigmented cream that covers uneven skin tone and scars. You get the benefits of two products in one. 2. Lip Balm © Nykaa The lip balm has no gender. 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. 3. Dry Shampoo © Nykaa A dry shampoo, contrary to a leave-in conditioner, is for those days when your hair is too oily to style. Dry shampoo absorbs the excess oil and leaves hair with much-needed volume. 4. Concealer © Nykaa A concealer is instrumental 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 the face right before date night or even dark circles for that matter! This product upon generous use, conceals it all. 5. Hand Cream © Nykaa No-one wants to hold hands that are scaly and unpleasant to touch. Have you wondered, why your girl's hands are so soft 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). This is where a hand lotion comes into the picture.
  6. Holi parties are great, but post-Holi skincare can be traumatizing for you considering it's very tough to get rid off these colours off your face. But here's a guide for you filled with tried and tested, super-effective products that make it easy to get rid off those clingy colours. Now, in good faith, we obviously hope that the first thing you'll do after coming back is going to the shower and wash your face. Aside from the basic products, you should also use: 1. A Glycerin Cleansing Agent Glycerine is one of the most effective ingredients when it comes to skincare. Using this glycerine cleansing agent will ensure effective cleansing while maintaining the pH balance. © nykaa 2. A Heavy Duty Scrub A scrub is more aggressive than a face wash in weeding out seeded dirt( in this case colour) from your skin. A scrub with tiny granules rubs against your pores gently and makes sure all the dirt is removed. © nykaa 3. A Deep Cleansing Shampoo For your brittle hair from all the colour that you've been exposed to, you need a deep cleansing shampoo to get rid of all that extra dirt. © nykaa 4. An Oil To Gently Rub Off The Excessive Dirt Massage your skin and scalp with this sweet almond oil before the second run of cleansing, in case there are still colour stains left. Oil also helps in cleansing your skin and moisturizes it at the same time. You could choose from almond, coconut or sesame, whichever you're most comfortable with. © nykaa 5. A Good Moisturizer After aggressive cleansing sessions, your skin needs some pampering. Use a good moisturizer so that all the lost hydration returns and your skin is left glowing once again. © nykaa
  7. This is the tale of a young Nigerian refugee boy who escaped his homeland along with his mother as the fear of the inhuman terrorist organisation, Boko Haram continued to grow amidst the streets of Nigeria. Getting inside the borders of the United States of America a year ago, the family found solace, no matter how temporary it may be, in a tiny homeless shelter of Manhattan, New York. The eight-year-old boy, who has come to be known as Tani to his American friends, was guaranteed education in a local elementary school called P.S. 116 wherein, a chess coach, Russell Makofsky, took him under his wing. While Tani showed a lot of interest in the sport, his mother was afraid that she won't be able to afford his dreams as they family was living in a shelter and affording two meals a day was a struggle in itself. Tani's coach Makofsky therefore decided to teach him the sport without taking a single penny from the family. “talent is universal but opportunity is not.” Tanitoluwa Adewumi, a homeless 8-year-old refugee, who won the New York State Chess Championship. Tani, you make all of us proud. Keep smiling and keep winning ps guys let's spread the word and help him out https://t.co/16VdapSimb pic.twitter.com/bXybqSBRle — camila (@Camila_Cabello) March 19, 2019 This is what makes Tani's achievements more impressive. The third-grader, who started playing the game almost a year ago, won the New York State chess championship in his category whilst defeating the kids that belonged to the richest families of the state, who could afford private chess sessions from the best coaches at their disposal, giving them a huge advantage over them. Life for the young genius has not been easier despite being thousands of miles away from the terror of Boko Haram. Kids from his school often teased him for being homeless and there have been numerous evenings when he has returned to his shelter with teary eyes because of it. During a pep rally held by his school, his principal Jane Hsu said: “It's an inspiring example of how life's challenges do not define a person.” Hsu also commends Tani's family for their limitless support and love for their child who has been destined to do great things. Tani wishes to become the youngest grandmaster of all time and at the rate at which he has been improving his game month after month, the time is not far when he finally realises this dream of his.
  8. Prepping for date night can be really intimidating, so, use these basic products on your skin to get a glowing face. Instead of taking a hungover face or a face that looks older beyond your years, it's better to dip your toes in the world of male beauty to become the best version of yourself. 1. Hydrate Your Skin Prep your skin with a face wash that suits your skin. You need to weed out the residue dirt and oil that collects throughout the day. Pro tip: get a face wash that suits your skin. For example, if you have dry skin, get a hydrating face wash and if you have acne-prone skin get an anti-acne face wash. © Nykaa © Nykaa 2. Seal The Deal With A Toner What most men don't realise is that toner is that one product that makes a difference between flawless skin and not-so-flawless-skin. Just swipe one with cotton to cleanse the pores thoroughly. © Nykaa © Nykaa 3. Spot Cream For Acne Use a spot cream for acne if you have any kinds of scars, to have your skin soak up the benefits © Nykaa © Nykaa 4. Serum A general rule for hydrating your skin is that you should start with the lightest of products. Start with a serum or an essential oil to prep your skin so it looks fresh throughout the day. © Nykaa 5. Moisturize Daily A daily moisturizer helps lock in all the good work you've put in. It also helps keep the skin hydrated. Just lightly massage to get a fresh face by the end of this routine. © Nykaa
  9. Elon Musk, are you doing okay, buddy? Everything good? You know, you can always talk to professionals about your addiction, your addiction to memes. Yep, it's no secret that our favourite billionaire may have developed a little bit of an obsession with memes recently and that too, memes involving him. Everyone loves having a good laugh and Elon probably is just making sure to keep everyone happy, and it's honestly great to see him make jokes at his expense. Just a few days ago, he blessed us with this piece of art. Oh hi lol pic.twitter.com/9WvbtTHoxS — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 26, 2019 Now, he's posted another meme involving himself and it's honestly the true face of horror. Take a look. Yeah, I lift a little … pic.twitter.com/UAJdv8qSw1 — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) March 6, 2019 First of all, no. second of all, hell no! Why? Why Elon? Why did you make me and about 25 million other people look at this? It's just so disturbing for some reason, I can't explain it. People then replied (and supplied) him with more memes of him. pic.twitter.com/ikQzZClT7I — Lucas thies (@Vefna1) March 6, 2019 Uh no.

  10. Sarvatra Sarvottam Suraksha- Omnipresent Security of the Highest Level. Bharat Mata Ki Jai!- Hail Mother India. With this motto and war-cry as the primary ideal and an ethos that includes pursuit for excellence, leading from the front, zero-error and launching surprise attacks on intruders with speed, stealth and precision, the National Security Guard (NSG) Commandos or the Black Cats (named after their black uniform and gear) of the Indian Special Forces, are one of the most fierce warriors. Not only are these men great warriors, but they are also fine tactical athletes of their own kind. The NSG was officially established in 1986, in an effort to create an elite force to counter any terrorist activities within the boundaries of our country. Like every branch of our Special Forces, the NSG has also developed gradually and their physical and mental fitness requirements have evolved from the time it got established. I am fortunate enough to be good friends with a few individuals who have been and are still serving in the Special Forces; and hence by writing this piece, I hope fellow Indians realize how gruelling the NSG training can be in order to stand a chance to protect our beloved country from within. Due to reasons pertaining to national security, not everything can be revealed but I have tried my best to portray the fitness requirements of the Black Cats after interviewing a few Black Cat Commandos. © Defencelover “The NSG is a volunteer arm and it has two parts: The Special Action Group consists of commandos selected from the Army and the Special Ranger Group consists of commandos from the Central and State Police Forces. Out of thousands of candidates, only 0.3% get selected to serve in the NSG. It is a very competitive procedure”, said Commando A (Name undisclosed). But why is the selection process so aggressive? It is mainly because the candidates are expected to change and transform themselves from soldiers or police personnel to Commandos in a very short time, and this procedure is physically and mentally taxing. “Candidates are not only expected to attain a minimum of “excellent” fitness performance as per the regular army standards (these include running, long jump, chin-ups, pushups, rope climbing and sit-ups; with and without combat gear), but also expected to become independent leaders by demonstrating excellent personality development and soft-skills.”, Commando A added. © Defencelover “The roles of the NSG include security of VIPs, room intervention and combating any and every sorts of terrorist activities within the country. During the counter-terror operation of 26/11 at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, the commandos had to perform room intervention and make a quick decision as to when to shoot or when to hold fire after breaking open every room-door. There could have been terrorists or only innocent guests or both in the room and decision making was crucial.”, said Commando B. “During the initial three-month training, commandos are not given more than 2-3 hours of sleep. I was made to stand for hours while wearing heavy loads on my back” said Commando C. We all know how important sleep is to us and how it helps us perform daily activities with ease. But we can't even imagine how much willpower it would require to ace physical tests, to learn martial arts and to be precise with target shooting while being sleep deprived! The NSG commandos are also well-trained in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Pekiti-Tirsia Kali (A Filipino martial art) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by qualified martial arts trainers. © YouTube If you thought that this was the end of their training, then let me add that after being a member of the NSG, commandos are tested either monthly or quarterly to make sure their skills and fitness levels remain up to the mark. Besides, they undergo multiple simulations for preparation and real-life projects that civilians never hear of. In 2018, the US Special Forces (Green Berets) conducted a joint drill with the NSG in Kolkata and were very impressed with the drills carried out in the Metro Railways by the Black Cats. There is no doubt that India is in safe and strong hands indeed.
  11. The WWE Universe was in absolute shock when in October last year, the one-time Universal Champion, Roman Reigns let the world know how he had Leukemia and had been fighting blood cancer for 11 years behind-the-scenes. On a later October episode of Monday night Raw, the Samoan wrestler let the audience know that in order to battle the disease more intimately, he had to go away from the WWE for some time and had to give up his title in the process. Breaking his character for maybe the very first time, Reigns had said: “My real name is Joe and I have been living with Leukemia for 11 years.” People were crying and hurting but were united in support of the 'Big Dog'. Thank you to everyone who's reached out...I can't put into words what it means to me. Your energy and positivity motivate me to get better quickly to get back in the ring, but for now I'm going to spend time with my family and focus on health. Thank you - Joe/Roman — Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) October 23, 2018 But, Reigns didn't forget to mention that he is in no way retiring from WWE and once he was done “whooping Leukemia's ass,” he was going to be back on Raw, healthy as ever, to take what was rightfully his, the WWE Universal Championship. Now, exactly four months since Reigns let the world in on his painful secret, WWE.com made an official statement saying that Reigns is set to make a comeback to the franchise show, albeit for one night, to address the update on his battle versus the cancer. WWE CEO, Vince McMahon too, took to Twitter with an update: .@WWERomanReigns (aka Joe Anoa'i) will address the status of his fight with leukemia this Monday on Raw. #fighter #proud #classy pic.twitter.com/kgXD8SHwVc — Vince McMahon (@VinceMcMahon) February 21, 2019 Well, it looks like Reigns kept his word after all. Four months ago, 'The Guy' had said that he would soon be back to the ring, to 'his yard', as he so proudly claims it to be and Roman is finally going to be home. A couple of weeks ago, former WWE wrestler and Hollywood star, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson had expressed his love for Reigns, his cousin, over his tireless war against Leukemia and how it had evolved Reigns' “state of mind”. Very proud of him. His leukemia recovery has elevated his state of mind to a whole other level. And it was fuuuun to go legit beast mode with my cousin in our movie where he plays my brother. #LetTheBodiesHitTheFloor #HobbsAndShaw AUG 2nd. https://t.co/bqpLFQC1Z1 — Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) January 28, 2019 In the process of defeating the disease, Reigns believes that his return to the WWE would not just be about wrestling and winning titles but will come with a purpose: “I am coming back because I want to show all of you, the whole world… that when life throws a curveball at me… I will always swing for the fences.” Reigns' fans finally took a breath of fresh air and reacted in joy over the internet: Hell yes the Big Dog returns. I hope his battle with leukemia is either over or almost there. Roman is missed. pic.twitter.com/E929lnSLCM — Mark Collins (@MarkCol14113961) February 21, 2019 pic.twitter.com/n0ZQ8IBDPp — N.O.R (@MeIAmNOR) February 21, 2019 .. really ..!!!

  12. The shade-y business isn't for everyone (forgive the pun). And most people certainly can't pull off shades. But that's only because they don't know what works for them and what doesn't. A major factor that you need to account for is your face shape. If you understand the dynamics of a pair of sunglasses and the shape of one's face, you can pull off shades like you've always wanted to. Here's a quick guide for you to help you get the right pick: 1. Round Face © Instagram With a round face, ideally stay away from anything that makes it look even rounder. Instead, choose glasses with angular frames like a square or a rectangle. These give an edge that balances out the roundness of your face. These frames will work on your face like a charm. 2. Square Face © Instagram For a defined jawline with symmetrical proportions, your face would ideally fit in the square face shape category. You obviously don't want to look like a square-faced robot. Here, round glasses, break the line and will suit your face best. 3. Oblong Or A Heart-shaped Face © Instagram Both face types have sharp, prominent cheekbones, that need complementing with other prominent structures. Aviators look the best with these face types. Try reflectors for a groovy effect. 4. Oval Face © Instagram If you have an oval face, you're one of the lucky ones. This blessed face shape works well almost any kind of shades. Take a cue from Ranveer Singh and go wild with the quirky ones.
  13. Shaving might seem to be an extremely simple affair, but it's not. Every man has had bad experiences with shaving, at least once in his life, and it definitely is one of those experiences that one does not want a repeat of. (c) Getty Images There is a correct way and a wrong way to shave, but the trouble is that no one quite knows which is which. You're supposed to glide your razor across your face in a specific direction, that has to do with the usual hair growth pattern on a human male face. Following that pattern will reduce cuts and burns significantly, and also make sure that the stubble that grows afterwards is flawless. (c) Getty Images All you need to do is look at the face shave map here, and follow the arrows to determine the direction in which your razor should move. Make sure to rinse your razor after every stroke. (c) MensXP Say hello to a flawless shave! You're welcome.
  14. WhatsApp is now rolling out an update on iOS which lets users further protect their chats with the help of iPhone's onboard biometric authentication. WhatsApp already has end-to-end encryption making it one of the more secure instant messaging apps. However, the new update is set to make it even more secure. WhatsApp has now started to roll out an update where users can protect the app with either Touch ID or FaceID authentication depending on the iPhone model you use. Your facial data and fingerprint data will remain encrypted in the phone and WhatsApp will not be getting access to your personal biometric data. © MensXP-Akshay Bhalla Setting up this feature is fairly simple as you need to open WhatsApp, head to setting > account > privacy and select “screen lock”. You can then select the option “Require Face ID” or “Require Touch ID”. Select the preferred time you want the feature to kick in. When replying to messages or answering calls from the lock screen, WhatsApp does not require additional authentication. © YouTube However, if someone knows your PIN, then they will be able to access your WhatsApp the same way you will be able to. It's needless to say that you should be keeping your PIN safe to prevent people from accessing your WhatsApp chats and in-app purchases from other applications that provide micro-transactions. As of now, this feature is only available to iPhone users; however, Android users will be getting a similar feature in the near future. The system that enables Android devices for protecting apps is mostly the same as Apple's and Android users will be able to take advantage of the feature very soon.

  15. Australians have been known for their dedication, toughness and complete badassery when it comes to dealing with adversities. Having grown up in the most demanding of environments with their land infested with giant spiders and highly venomous snakes, Aussies have adapted themselves to stand strong amidst the biggest of challenges. This particular Australian cricket fan is the perfect example of all of the above. Very good for Jimmy Peirson who launched this ball into the crowd. Very bad for old mate, who got hit by said ball in the face... ð¤#BBL08 | @weet_bix pic.twitter.com/IXmDfeHBFj — KFC Big Bash League (@BBL) January 29, 2019 Watch as the Brisbane Heat wicket-keeper batsman Jimmy Peirson sent one flying over the mid on off an easy ball delivered by the Hobart Hurricanes pacer James Faulkner in the 17th over in the ongoing Australian Big Bash League. What initially looked like a shot not long enough to cross the boundary, sailed over the mid-wicket and went straight for a fan's head. The guy looked enthusiastic enough to try and catch the ball without realising how fast it was coming in, consequently hitting him on the left side of his forehead. If you have ever had a leather ball darting towards your head and making contact, you would empathise with the poor chap who was instantly taken to the emergency room to check for concussions. Fortunately, the Aussie did not get a severe injury, as he returned to his seat a few minutes later with an ice pack and probably the best ad hoc aide in a cold can of beer. Thankfully, his failed attempt to catch the ball wasn't a complete failure as it reduced the effect of the impact on his head. He's back! Guy who got hit by six has returned, complete with an ice pack and refreshing beverage. What a trooper #BBL08 pic.twitter.com/cO4tHRP7uW — KFC Big Bash League (@BBL) January 29, 2019 With the Indian Premier League still a couple of months away, the Cricket Australia club league is a good substitute for action-packed cricketing entertainment, which has been full of uncanny incidences like Aston Turner (Perth Scorchers) granted with a maximum for hitting the roof of the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne. The Docklands roof has been hit for the first time in #BBL08!

  16. Sometimes, you really just can't help the expressions you make, and it happens even more when you're literally wrestling with someone. Then, the expression can be so funny that it turns you into a meme. That's exactly what happened to Brock Lesnar during a match on Sunday. During the WWE Royal Rumble match, Lesnar defeated his opponent Finn Balor via submission after just under nine minutes in the middle of the ring using his Kimura lock and a meme was born. His victory was also a victory for the internet as he had the most hilarious expression. When @BrockLesnar gets into THIS mode, there's no chance.#RoyalRumble #UniversalTitle pic.twitter.com/obA3DNYVi1 — WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) January 28, 2019 Yep, that one. At this point, I would honestly be disappointed if that didn't become a meme, but obviously, everyone came through. Here are the best ones: I can feel it.

  18. Face unlocking is now a major feature on smartphones that was first introduced by Apple's iPhone X. However, a new study shows that a number of smartphones' face unlock feature can be defeated by a simple photo. © OnePlus The Dutch Consumerntenbond organisation tested over 100 devices and found that over 30 of them could be unlocked by using a picture of the owner. There's a massive number of devices that aren't exclusive to any smartphone maker, as the likes of BlackBerry, Nokia, Lenovo, Sony, Xiaomi, Huawei were featured amongst others. Most of these smartphones that got fooled were budget smartphones and a few flagship smartphones such as the Huawei P20 Pro, Sony's Xperia XZ2 and the HTC U11 Plus. Smartphones that passed the test also feature a range of smartphones such as the Honor 10, HTC U12, OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 6, Samsung's 2018 flagship smartphones and all 2018 iPhones. © Apple The organisation found that there were various smartphones that had could be unlocked straight away and some had more stringent face unlock settings. These stricter settings helped these smartphones to defeat photos.

  19. Winter is finally here! Just in case you've been living under a rock, HBO has released a 5-second clip of from the upcoming Season 8 of 'Game Of Thrones', and fans are shook (quite literally). In case you missed it, take a look: #GameofThrones returns to @HBO this April. pic.twitter.com/1muHcwJIFJ — Game Of Thrones (@GameOfThrones) January 7, 2019 The small, barely 5-second clip shows Sansa Stark throwing shade at Daenerys Targaryen when she almost rolls her eyes and snarkily says “Winterfell is yours, Your Grace.” Okay, first things first, there is a lot of tension that you can feel between these two powerful women. The two characters have clearly a lot at stake in the cutthroat plotline that they're a part of, as they've survived a lot of gruesome realities to reach where they are right now. At this point, Winterfell is important to both of them in equally valid ways, which makes this 5-second clip even more interesting. Obviously, Twitter had their own thoughts on this super frosty interaction and began a war of memes on this ultimate face-off: Sansa is eyeing Danny up and down like she is a piece of shit tramp her brother brought home. Brienne is looking at Sansa like whew chile, you don't know who you fucking with. @WiCnet #taketheblack pic.twitter.com/sPN2PpFaTB — I. A. Melton ðð½ (@ijamelton) January 7, 2019 And we're also clenching our fists in anticipation because they're both strong, independent women that we love and would like to see alive for as long as possible.

Wow. I can see why sansa is not happy here. This is a mess, no matter how much we like Dany.#gameofthrones pic.twitter.com/KgZ7Rq25AP — BLJacksonð·âðð¤ (@JacksonBrittsny) January 7, 2019 Sansa went and graduated from Margaery/Olenna Tyrell school, majored in Cersei's and got a Littefinger PhD.

The final six episodes will grace our screens in April and are likely to have been filmed with multiple endings to avoid spoilers.
  20. Justin Bieber got a face tattoo and it's as mired in mystery as his marriage (yes, he's a married man, in case you missed it). He got married to Haley Baldwin, and made it 'Insta-official'. Surprisingly, they didn't have an elaborate wedding. However, the thing we're more surprised about has nothing to do with that, even though it is apparently a tribute to the love he shares with his wife. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on Nov 15, 2018 at 9:43am PST View this post on Instagram A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on Jul 13, 2018 at 10:10pm PDT Now, Bieber's tattoos are already famous and he flaunts them proudly, as anyone would tbh. He has a lot of tattoos all over, and is often compared with the legendary Mr Beckham when it comes to that. © Justjared However, he did not show off his latest ink, which also happens to be the most interesting tattoo he's got till now. It's a tattoo on his face. Take a look. © Instagram/jonboytattoo The tattoo is right above his right eye brow, and it says 'grace'. It's been revealed that he got it as a part of a couple tattoo. © Instagram/jonboytattoo When we hear face tattoos, we gear up for a disaster. However, this seems to be rather inconspicuous and tastefully done (compared to most face tattoos, you know you agree.) You almost can't even see it in plain daylight. © Getty Images All we can see is that this perhaps is the only face tattoo that's not cringeworthy. Not bad, J!
  21. If you thought India's Parliament sessions are hilarious and that nothing can come even remotely close to them, wait till you hear this. Recently, Google CEO Sundar Pichai was summoned by US lawmakers, in a House Judiciary Committee hearing, for a grilling session. Of the gazillion questions thrown at him, there was one that gave the world a new face for the word 'idiot'. A congresswoman, Zoe Lofgren, asked Sundar Pichai on why US President Donald Trump's image pops up when someone searches for 'idiot'. She asked, "If you Google the word 'idiot' under images, a picture of Donald Trump comes up. How would that happen? How does search work so that that would occur?" She said that she just searched that and further asked if this was a case of intentional bias and manipulation. For all those who managed to control your laughter till the end of this question, proudly pat your backs. © Reuters Pichai, with a face as straight as a line, tried to explain them how the big tech companies work, how Google indexes webpages and how the algorithms function by taking into account various factors like relevance, popularity, keywords and more. CONGRESS: "When I type in the word 'idiot' images of Donald Trump appear." GOOGLE: "Yeah, we told you it works." #GoogleHearing pic.twitter.com/SMofyukcdd — Mrs. Betty Bowers (@BettyBowers) December 11, 2018 "So, it's not some little man sitting behind the curtain figuring out what we're going to show the user. It's basically a compilation of what users are generating, and trying to sort through that information?" the congresswoman further asks. To which, Sundar Pichai further explains how they don't manually intervene in any particular search result. We don't know if they were convinced with this answer, but this entire session only shows how little the lawmakers know about how internet and technology works.
  22. Amidst all the major confusion regarding their wedding schedule, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas went ahead and finally got married in a Christian-style ceremony today at Jodhpur's Umaid Bhawan Palace. Looks like its Prick aka NickYanka vs DeepVeer tonight, as both the star couples chose December 1st for their wedding and reception respectively. View this post on Instagram One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas A post shared by Priyanka Chopra (@priyankachopra) on Dec 1, 2018 at 7:31am PST While we were busy stalking and scouring the social media to look for pictures from DeepVeer's reception, Priyanka and Nick came around and surprised us by posting a string of pictures online from their Mehendi ceremony. Instagram Our Desi girl Priyanka and her pardesi babu Nick, looked like characters from a fairytale dream wedding. If these pictures don't low-key make you want to get married, we wonder what can. Instagram Just like Ranveer and Deepika, Priyanka and Nick too will get married in two ceremonies - one as per Christian traditions that took place today and one will be held according to Hindu traditions, which will be held on the 2nd of December.
  23. I thought everyone in this country - and the world - loved Shah Rukh Khan, but turns out I was wrong. Well, when you're one of the most famous people in the country, you end up having to deal with hate and threats, and no, that's not okay, but it still happens. Everything is not exactly okay for King Khan right now, as an Odisha-based outfit has threatened to attack him with ink and show him black flags if he visits the state during the Men's Hockey World Cup slated to kickstart next week. This seemingly random threat by an organization called the 'Kalinga Sena' did not come out of the blue, as there's a long history attached to their grudge. It goes all the way back to SRK's 2001 film 'Asoka' as the Kalinga Sena felt like the movie insulted the culture of Odisha by depicting the Kalinga war wrongly. Moreover, the organization had also previously filed a police complaint against the actor on November 1 for allegedly 'insulting' Odisha and then, even a rally was held to burn his effigy on November 11. Now, that seems a little too much, doesn't it? Okay, just a refresher, here's the story of the Kalinga war. It was a battle between Emperor Asoka and the Kalinga king which was won by Asoka. The movie is like almost two freaking decades old, so obviously, this is not a new issue. Reportedly, 'Asoka' faced problems 17 years ago as well when it came to its release and did not screen in the state for more than a week due to the protests against it. Hemant Rath, the Kalinga Sena chief, has demanded an apology from SRK. In a statement to the press, the outfit's general secretary Nihar Pani said, “We have made preparation to throw ink on the actor's face and show him black flag at any place from the airport to the stadium. Our activists will remain present all along the road where Khan is likely to visit.” As mentioned above, SRK is all set to visit the state in a couple of day for the inauguration of the World Cup at the Kalinga Stadium and therefore the issue and the protests have resurfaced again. Obviously, this calls for extra protection for the actor and the other celebrities set to attend the ceremony and the police have already made arrangement for that, of course.
  24. We all know that we need a face wash as part of our skin care routine. Everybody uses it, so there are probably a hundred brands making it. But, what does a face wash really do? And how can you figure out which face wash is the right option for you? That's why we have broken down how to choose the right face wash. The point of a face wash is to clean the skin on your face of dirt, sweat, sebum (the oil that is secreted), bacteria, dead cells, and any other impurities. If a cleanser is too light, it may not clean well enough, if too rich, it may clog your pores. You also need to make sure that your face wash doesn't contain excessively harsh or harmful chemicals. Ingredients like cocamidopropyl betaine or caprylic triglyceride are better as they are sulfate free surfactants. And finally, you should definitely not use your everyday soap on your face, as it can dry your skin too much, or cause damage due to its harsh components. And here is what you have to remember when buying your face wash: For dry skin © Instagram/ Tiger Shroff Dry skin needs nourishing, quite obviously. So what you need is a face wash for dry skin that is moisturising, with ingredients like lanolin, petroleum, and mineral oil. These components help to nourish the skin, and after cleansing it, leave a slight layer of moisture. You should stay away from foaming face washes. You should also avoid excessive exfoliation, and stay away from products that have salicylic or glycolic acid. For oily skin © Instagram/ Sidharth Malhotra The right face wash for oily skin is equipped to combat any excessive sebum that is produced. Sebum is the naturally oily secretion that your happens on your skin. Unlike what a lot of products tend to do for oily skin, it is not advisable to get rid of all the natural oil on your face, in the name of cleansing. It makes our sebaceous glands react, and overproduce oil to restore the balance. The ideal face wash for oily skin in a mild one, generally foaming, which cleans the face without stripping it off all moisturise entirely. Look for products with naturally antibacterial properties like neem and tea tree to keep breakouts at bay, since they combat any pores that may have bacteria in it. Something like aloe vera is also good to have, as it soothes the skin, and lightly hydrates it. For combination skin © Instagram/ Varun Dhawan People with combination skin face a difficult battle, sometimes your skin gets too dry, and sometimes the side-effects of an oily skin can suddenly act out on your skin. What you need is a gentle cleanser that does not irritate either property. Something that is alcohol-free, hypoallergenic, soap-free is a good choice for you. In fact, you may want to consider something like a micellar water, due to its super gentle properties. For sensitive skin or acne-prone skin © Instagram/ Ishaan Khatter If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, first you need to determine what is the problem area. If you have hyper dryness, it can lead to red patches and rashes on your skin. Alternatively, if you have acne-the end result can also be angry red patches. Both these are very different, and ideally, you should only pick your face wash after a consultation. Sensitive As a general rule though, both do need a gentle cleanser. If you have sensitive skin, then pick a cleanser that doesn't have any alcohol, is fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, and paraben-free. Acne-prone If you have acne-prone skin then tea-tree, neem, and salicylic acid based anti-acne cleansers area a good option. For normal skin © Instagram/ Ranveer Singh If you happen to have normal skin, then you happen to have lucked out quite a bit. Most face washes will work for you, though it is better that you stay away from harsh chemicals like parabens and surfactants. You can use both a foaming or non-foaming face wash depending on how your skin reacts to each. Just remember that you don't want a face wash to completely dry out your face, leave any residue behind, or not clean the dirt properly.
