  1. This Eid, viewers are in for a treat as they have two spectacular options - Salman Khan's 'Bharat' and 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix', and fans are curious to know which film will rule at the box office. But what if we tell you that there's a major showdown looming between 'Bharat' distributor, Anil Thadani, and Fox Star Studios, who want to release 'Dark Phoenix'? Yes, you heard that right. The exhibitors are completely stuck between the ugly war of the two distributors. 'Bharat' is a film that is awaited by millions, considering Salman being the lead and it can create a big spin at the box office. On the other hand, we have a big banner film 'Dark Phoenix' that also has a loyal fan base in India. A trade source told us, “Anil Thadani has told the exhibitors that if they didn't give full shows to Bharat, he won't give them the Friday release 'De De Pyaar De'. It's not just Anil, but Fox is also creating troubles. So, Fox has asked exhibitors and distributors to give 'Dark Phoenix' two shows during Eid. If the exhibitors fail to do so, Fox will not be giving their major releases that include 'India's Most Wanted', 'Brahmastra' and 'Mission Mangal'. The exhibitors are in for a show now and are facing big trouble with two big ventures.” The source also added, “Anil had similar issues at the time of 'Raees' clash with 'Kaabil'.” We hope that the two production houses solve this major issue and find a solution so that both the releases don't suffer. Fans would be majorly disappointed if they have to choose between Bharat and Dark Phoenix. What do you think about it? Tell us in the comments below!

However, what most people don't realise is that these are easily solvable problems. So, here is a breakdown of all the things you can do to fix these issues without having a certain someone notice it: 1. A Case Of Bad Breath © Getty Images If you have a case of bad breath that people complain of when they lean in to talk to you then you've got to add these things to your grooming kit. Besides a brush, you need a floss, a tongue cleaner and a mouthwash and add these steps to your brushing routine. For the daily commute keep the chewing gum and a mint box handy for emergencies. Otherwise, it's always to safe to pop in a mint after lunch so any build up is tackled before a stench develops. 2. Body Odour © Getty Images Body odour is natural and something everyone has. However, a particularly strong body odour can literally drive people away from you. This means you need to take care of your body odour and make sure it does not become a trashy stench by the end of the day. So instead of deodorants, try roll-ons, they are more effective and keep you away from smelling bad. 3. Dandruff Shed © amazon The dandruff shed is not only annoying but one of the first symptoms hair fall. Dandruff is the dead skin cells falling off the scalp, which means a lack of deep moisturizing in the scalp that you need to tackle. Aside from anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner, try a good anti-dandruff cream. 4. Nose And Ear Whiffs © amazon For the extra nose and ear whiffs that you haven't gotten off yet, you need a special trimmer designed for the ear and nose whiffs. These troubling whiffs can be annoying to look at for the other person. A nose and ear hair strand trimmer is a hassle-free and painless way to get rid of these hair whiffs. 5. Dark Eye Circles © amazon For racoon eyes and blemishes that add years to your face, you need a concealer that will conceal all these imperfections in no time. The concealer is not gendered. Stop believing that only women use it. Male beauty matters too. Considering the first impression you send out is your face before you even speak. 6. Annoying Rashes © amazon Here's a secret that will change your life. For all the annoying rashes on your body, from those annoying blisters on the feet to thigh and arm rashes that come from too much friction, gymming, and humid months can all go in two minutes if you apply a baby rash cream. A baby rash cream is made with special ingredients to get rid of any rashes or itchiness that babies get from wearing diapers, which makes these creams super effective.

And, we're not even talking chemicals, just natural ingredients like tea tree oil and aloe vera gel that soothe the itch down there and kill any bacteria build up. 8. Stretch Marks © amazon Stretch marks are those red lightning bolt like marks that appear on your skin when you're either going through puberty or your body is transitioning by gaining or losing weight. After a bright rouge, they simmer down to white marks eventually. To get rid of them entirely, you need an essential oil primarily dedicated to getting stretch marks out of the body. A regular application gets them out eventually.
  4. It is a universally acknowledged fact that all men come in different body sizes. Seriously, even if standardized clothes fit you well, they will never match up to the level of getting something customized. However, realistically, not everything can be customized which means finding your size in the pool of random sizes. Every brand has their own scale for standardizing a size which varies from year to year. This means that in all likelihood there are chances of you wearing the wrong size. Here are ways you can know for sure that you're wearing a size that you definitely shouldn't be wearing: 1. You Can't Hug Someone In Your Blazer © Twitter If you're wearing a blazer that restricts movement in your arms and makes them heave down, it's definitely the wrong size. Blazer sleeves should never restrict one's movement or look funny around the pits. Next time, while trying on blazers check the motion by moving your hands around and probably even jumping up and down to see how much it can handle. If you cant, you need a bigger size. 2. There's A Gap Between Your Buttons © Twitter If your buttons eventually unbutton during the day, it's an alarming factor that is telling that you need to go a size up with your shirts. The poor buttons can only handle so much. Besides, it is extremely unprofessional to have your buttons open in front of everyone. 3. Your Pants Keep Riding Up © Twitter If the hem of your pants keep riding up and get stuck around your crotch, then there is a problem. Not only is it uncomfortable but also visible to everyone else. This can be the worst when you sit down or stand up in front of people. You need the hem to fall at an appropriate length. 4. You Can't Pass The Finger Test © Twitter The two-finger test is a test through which you can figure out if you're wearing the right size or not. A waistline that fits well standing up might just be too tight while sitting down, which is why you need a size that hugs well in all movements possible. If you can't pinch your pants and still find space, you need to go a size higher. 5. Your Shirt Won't Stay Tucked In For The Longer Duration © Twitter A shirt coming untucked every now and then without reason might mean you're wearing the wrong size in shirts. While running around is a legitimate reason to find it untucked, but if it's a common nonoccurrence you need to go a size up. 6. Your Pockets Keep Flaring © Twitter The one red flag that you be aware of is flaring pants. While wearing pants, your pockets shouldn't find a way to pop out on their own. This not only looks awkward but is also super shabby. Besides, you don't need a pocket thief, as the flared-up pockets make it super easy for you to lose things. 7. Your Shirt Is Too Short When You Sit Down © Twitter Does your T-shirt ride up when you sit? Bad sign. You need to go up a size higher unless you like crop tops.
  5. Bad breath is like a first impression. People never forget the stench once they've visited your bad breath land. This can really bring you down on the likability-scale, as people can get put off by this. This can also hamper your chances of dating and or even social interaction in general. Fixing a bad breath comes down to a proper diet, a fixed oral hygiene routine and floss. Here are some quick ways that can fix your bad breath. 1. Replace Your Toothbrush Quarterly Don't use a toothbrush whose bristles have outworn themselves or a brush that you can't remember when you purchased. Bad idea. Old bristles have accumulated dirt that builds over time and instead of cleaning imparts bacteria to your teeth. 2. Floss Everyday While brushing is great. There will be gunk stuck in your teeth that even the sharpest of bristles might not be able to reach/ To get those, you need to floss. Trust us, it's this clingy gunk that acts as a breeding ground for the bad stench. 3. Buy A Tongue Scraper © everydayhealth While it might come across as a toy, this effectively scrapes out residue that could possibly produce a foul smell from your mouth. 4. Tooth Paste & Mouthwash Changing your toothpaste and mouth wash can also significantly improve your oral hygiene. You need to find products that work for and keep your mouth fresh for a longer period of time.
  6. We all have been in a place where we have struggled with the range of motion, knee pain and lower back pain while doing barbell squats. Then comes the gym Bro who mocks your squat depth or load without understanding the possible restrictions you could be having while performing the squat! Do you relate to above squat issues? Want to squat max weight with impeccable technique possible? If YES, this is a must read for you. 1) Mobility & Flexibility During a squat, we need adequate mobility (range of motion about a joint) especially around the hip, knee, shoulder, and ankle joint. Everyone is aware of the previous point but doing it wrong, especially when performing exercises to improve the range of motion of the above joints. Whenever you introduce a drill to improve mobility and flexibility, you should test its translation in the squat. A squat is a dynamic movement and will require dynamic (moving) flexibility and stability. Only introduce the drills which improve your squat, not your static flexibility. 2-4 specific dynamic stretches after your general warm-up, no need of mindless static stretching before or after squats. © YouTube 2) Tempo Beginners do this all the time, diving into the bottom position of squats without control. Not only does this potentially affect one's balance in the squat but also can cause injuries due to load shifting forward or backward. Tempo is an important tool which beginners, intermediates and advanced gym goers have applied successfully to enhance squat technique. Tempo helps to gain control of the movement and makes the person more aware of his or her body position WRT space. 3-4 Seconds on the eccentric portion of the squat is good for most people to achieve the benefits of Tempo. A brief 1-second pause in the bottom position can also be added 3) Progression Without fixing the above two points, beginners jump on to the barbell squat and then perform it poorly. Don't get intimidated by heavy squatters or jump on the heavy squat wagon just yet! You can always utilize squat progressions to improve slowly and be able to perform the barbell squat without any hesitation later on. Feel free to use the below progression depending upon your current stage Wall Holds--->B.W box squat---->B.W squat---->Goblet squat---->Back squat **Utilise tools such as tempo, box & kettlebells for above progressions © Quora 4) Video Analysis Although this point is super important, most seem to neglect it or use it sparingly. Always record a video from a side angle to check your bar path, knee, hips, shoulder, and ankle movement. Compare your video with the optimal position for squat and work on improving the same every set and training session The bar should travel mostly straight, balance should be maintained over mid foot, hips and knees should move in synergy, knees and ankles shouldn't be collapsing inward, and shoulder blades should be retracted and depressed are some of the crucial aspects you should be looking at. 5) 80-20 Heuristic Regardless of the changes you implement to improve your squat, there will be minor issues. On one end of the spectrum, there are people who run behind the perfect technique and on the other end who do not care about technique at all. The one running behind perfect technique misses out on micro load progression and the other risks injury. It's better to find a comfortable ground between those two extremes to keep constant improvement. The technique will be affected and you have to accept it and move forward. 80% lift performed correctly with no pain or discomfort is probably good to go.

  7. Sprinting is a powerful and fundamental movement. It allowed our ancestors to escape from predators and hunt when required. Beyond that sprinting is an amazing exercise for building more muscle, improving your heart health and stamina. In order to sprint better, people use various apps and follow different running programs such as interval training or the useless long-distance running. Some also spend a lot of money on fancy running shoes thinking that they will help us prevent joint injuries and sprint better. Although the above tools can be useful, we often divulge from fixing the basics for long-term progress and focus more on the quick fixes Often when we sprint, our patterns are suboptimal which is a major contributor to slow pace and injuries. Our GAIT or human locomotion patterns are altered depending on a wide variety of reasons such as weight transition, previous injuries, mobility issues and posture deformities. © Pixabay In order to fix the above GAIT cycle, we need to assess the same using manual methods (most feasible) which can be easily done at your nearest physiotherapist. Once we have assessed our GAIT and have got recurring issues fixed by a physiotherapist, we now need to analyze our running pattern for which you will have to record a video of yourself from the side. Check for below points after recording the video from the lateral or the side view: Foot contact: Foot contact should be at the forefoot to midfoot which will change depending on your running speed Torso lean: Torso should be leaning slightly forward with eyes gazing around the horizon Hand position: Hand should be placed at the side flexed at 90 degrees and should move in coordination with the opposite leg. Think of your arms moving in a pendulum fashion. Left, Right, Left is a useful clue. Hip extension: Hip extension strength has a direct correlation with running speed and helps you propel forward. Exercises like deadlifts are very useful to create powerful hip extensions. © Pixabay Use cues such as lean forward, push the ground, swing the arms Left, Right, Left to correct the errors you see in your running pattern. Once you have optimized your running form, you will need to focus on strengthening the muscles involved in sprinting. Mistake Of Following A Generic Strength Program Running requires you to increase both concentric and eccentric strength. Below are things you need to keep in mind when designing a strength and conditioning program Eccentrically Strong Muscles: Hamstring and quadriceps. Heavy assisted leg press with slow eccentrics, single-leg leg extensions. Concentrically Strong Muscles: Glutes and hip flexor muscle group mainly psoas major and rectus femoris. Romanian Deadlifts & Hip-Thrusts Perform some strength training with high velocity as well. High-velocity movements will increase stride frequency and thus reduce ground contact time to give better running speed. Exercises which target different muscle lengths such as hip thrust and quarter squats can be incorporated as strength gain is joint angle specific as well. A full body program thrice a week will suffice the majority of the requirements with running being in the morning and strength and conditioning in the evening time. Your program will have to be periodized especially if you are a competing runner/sprinter. Summarizing everything we talked above: Step 1: Fix your current injuries and get your GAIT checked under a specialist Step 2: Record your running form from the lateral(side) view and fix visible errors and send them to running experts Step 3: Assess your current levels of strength, power and design a strength & conditioning program or get an expert to do the same for you Step 4: Periodize your entire running plan to minimize injuries and maximize your performance at any given timeframe That's it, folks! Even though above is a complex topic and requires super detailed reasoning and planning, I tried my best to explain it briefly. And if you apply even 50% of this, it will make a significant impact on your running performance. Feel free to drop a comment below or mail me for further queries or doubts.

  8. The biceps are considered to be the most important muscle for an aesthetic physique. It gives you the bragging rights, makes you out-angle people's faces in pictures and surprisingly, even makes you lose bodybuilding shows by a couple of points. Fun Fact: It was claimed that Chris Bumstead lost the first place by just 3 points in his debut Mr. Olympia due to bad arms. Read more about Chris aka the bodybuilding prodigy here. The biceps give your arms a fuller look and are considered the epitome of an aesthetic physique. But again, even on training biceps endlessly in the gym, guys fail to grow this muscle group and seem to be always struggling. That's because you may be doing one of these mistakes while training the biceps. Fix them and see your arms growing like a balloon: 1. Other Muscles Are Taking Over Most guys are guilty of doing swinging biceps where the front delts, upper traps, and the forearms take over the movement. It can easily be spotted if a person is swinging and their shoulders and elbows are coming forward. Or they shrug with every rep or curl their wrists at the top half of the movement. The fix: Keep your elbows tucked to your sides, depress your scapulae (do not shrug) and keep your wrists in the same neutral position on the top half of the movement. The weight you will move will be slightly lower here and that is perfectly alright if your goal is to grow your biceps. © infinitelabs 2. Partial Range Of Motion A lot of guys are guilty of doing the half reps either following the 21 reps technique or due to the sheer ego lifting they do in the gym. Partial range of motion is one of the biggest mistakes you can do in your quest to get jacked, not just for the biceps, simply for any body part. Read this if your goal is to get jacked. If your goal is maximal muscle growth in the biceps region, do a full range of motion while doing curls. 3. Establish A Mind-Muscle Connection This is one of the strategies that the bros got right. Failing to establish a mind-muscle connection could be a probable reason you are not seeing growth. This is because you may not be contracting the muscle properly when moving the weight. A study by Schoenfeld et. al. in 2018 showed that establishing a mind-muscle connection almost doubled the muscle growth in the bicep region who squeezed the bicep at the top vs. the group who just moved the weight. © Pixabay 4. Work Both The Short Head And The Long Head Of The Bicep For overall development, you should focus on both the heads of the bicep i.e. the short head and the long head. Exercises for the short head: - Spider curls - Preacher curls - Chin-ups Exercises for the long head: - Incline dumbbell curls - Cable curls behind the body - Drag curls Fix these mistakes and start seeing your biceps grow right away!

  9. Posture is the shape and alignment of different body segments. Posture defects normally arise due muscle imbalance in certain muscle groups. For example, some muscles may be strong and short, while the opposing muscle groups could be long and weak. In simple terms, attaining correct posture means keeping each part of the body in alignment with the neighbouring body parts. Proper posture ensures all the muscles are balanced and supported. Correct posture is a simple but very important way to keep the many deep muscles in the back and spine healthy. This is much more than looking at it from the point of view of aesthetics. Good posture and back support are important to reduction of back pain and neck pain. Benefits Of A Correct Posture © YouTube A good posture will make you look slimmer, younger and make your clothes look better on you. More than that, it will keep your bones and joints in correct alignment so that our muscles are used correctly and with the right bio mechanics. It can also decrease the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces that could result in degeneration of bones, arthritis and joint pain. There is lesser stress on the ligaments holding the spinal joints together, minimizing the chances of injury. Sitting and standing with proper postural alignment will increase efficiency with less fatigue and strain on the body's ligaments and muscles. Being aware of good posture is the first step and it is important to get yourself a postural analysis done to know about your plus points and limitations of the body. Exercising And Posture Correcting proper body posture can improve biomechanics at the gym and ensure your form and technique of each exercise is performed efficiently without causing and injury. Even from the perspective of day to day life preparedness, working on posture can help you perform certain tasks much better and easily. Do These 6 Exercises At Home 1) Partial Crunches © YouTube Although I don't really support partial reps in any form of exercises, in this particular case one of the core-strengthening workouts is the partial stomach crunch. Partial crunches build strength in both your lower back and associated stomach muscles, also making this a good exercise for people with spondylolysis. 2) Hamstring Stretches © YouTube Hamstring stretches are good to reduce tightness in the lower back and the back of the leg, where some of the muscles that support the work of the lower back are found. 3) Wall Sits © YouTube Incorporating wall sits for a few seconds every time you feel a lower back pain will make you feel better. 4) Pelvic Bridges © YouTube Bridging is a great exercise for back pain; it helps strengthen various supporting muscles for your back like the hamstrings, glutes, abdomen and hips. It also works directly to strengthen the lower back muscles. 5) Band Pull-Apart This is one of the most effective shoulder rehab exercises. To do this, all you need is a resistance band. They are usually colour coded, so pick one according to your strength. 6) Plank © YouTube This is one of the simplest exercises that can give you many benefits. Performing planks can improve your posture if done the right way. When performing the exercise, be sure to keep your legs straight, don't allow your lower back to drop, and ensure you are looking down at the floor. Conclusion Posture is mostly associated with some pain problems. Much of “poor posture” is actually just postural strain and bad ergonomic, and not really a postural problem at all. Many people seem to be affected to poor postures and postural strain, but these people also may not have a posture problem suffering from some pain. Many elements of poor posture are the result of long-term adaptation that is either difficult or impossible to change. One sure benefit to correcting posture is that it can affect mood, emotion and sensitivity to pain. Helius is one of Mumbai's most promising fitness professionals and part time kettle bell lecturer.

  10. If you are a regular at the gym, you would very well know that injuries are a part and parcel of the game. If you have been training for more than a year without even pulling a muscle once, either you are a god or you do not train hard enough. Injuries can happen to the best of us and they suck because they make you quit something that you like doing. Getting back to lifting sooner than later depends on how quickly you get correct treatment from the person who is supposed to treat you. That person is certainly NOT your gym trainer. Now, I have seen trainers acting like physiotherapists claiming to know anything and everything about human anatomy and injury rehabilitation. No matter which gym you go to, you'll see trainers who cannot even pronounce the body part correctly trying to help people “stretch” their muscles. Especially when it comes to ladies, these trainers turn into physios, chiropractors, osteopaths and physical therapist, all wrapped into one. However, the fact of the matter is that you should never ever turn to your gym trainer for either advice or treatment when it comes to injuries. No matter how knowledgeable your train says or acts like he is, it is not his area of expertise and, in most of the cases, he won't have a clue what caused your injury. Treating it is a whole different ball game. They just do not know what to do. It is the same as asking your milkman to fix your car's engine. Every person is different, and thus every case is different. This means the tests and treatments that will be recommended will be different. © Thinkstock Images No, Even If He's A Certified Nutritionist He's Isn't Qualified To Treat Injuries Now, if you are thinking that your gym or personal trainer is “certified” and is somehow different from those “uneducated” trainers out there, let me assure you that he/she still does not have the expertise to treat an injury. It does not matter how many courses or certifications your trainer has amassed; he is still just a trainer which means he is an exercise expert and not an injury rehab or treatment expert. © Thinkstock Images How do I know this? Well, because I am a certified trainer myself and I know what my area of expertise is and what isn't. So, while I can spot a difference between a shoulder and a thigh injury, I do not know how to manipulate or massage any of those joints, and so no “certified” trainer in this world would know how to do that. What To Do When You Get Injured? If you get injured, you should go and see a specialist. By seeing the person or a therapist under whose area of practice your injury falls, you find out exactly what's wrong and what to do to recover and rehabilitate. Most therapists will be happy to pass on recommendations and corrective measures to your trainer. That way your trainer, who is an exercise expert, can help you do those exercises correctly.

  11. Rolls-Royce, which is popular for its ultra-premium cars, is also famous for its jet engines. In fact, its engines power huge aircrafts like the 777 and 787. Fixing an engine can be a tedious task, especially when it needs to be opened up. Not only is the process time consuming, but also expensive. Hence, Rolls-Royce has come up with a new idea to fix hard-to-reach places: the use of snake and insect-inspired robotics. © Rolls-Royce Rolls Royce wants to make a new SWARM robot– a tiny, beetle-like robot with four legs that can crawl inside airplane engines to inspect and repair them. This is part of the company's Intelligent Engine vision, that has teamed up with the University of Nottingham and Harvard University. The SWARM robots will be placed in their starting locations using FLARE—a pair of 'snake' robots that are flexible enough to travel through an engine. Rolls-Royce says the robots act like an endoscope, slithering their way through the critical vehicle part to perform maintenance without causing any further damage. © Rolls-Royce The roaches would be around 15mm tall and weigh in at a few ounces. Onboard would be a camera, 3D scanning optics, and other specialized tools for maintenance tasks. "They could go off scuttling around reaching all different parts of the combustion chamber. If we did it conventionally it would take us five hours; with these little robots, who knows, it might take five minutes." Rolls-Royce technology specialist James Cell said. © Reuters When a jet engine needs to be inspected, it has to be demounted from the wing. The process is time-consuming and every minute the aircraft cannot fly, is a burden for airlines. The aim is to repair engines within hours instead of days. The company is also working on a bore-blending robot that can be remotely operated for complicated maintenance tasks. This way, specialists do not need to actually visit the engine and the local team can simply activate the robot. Specialists can then remotely inspect and repair the engine. The robots are still in the development stage but have given us a fair amount of idea where the industry is headed. Robotics is the next-generation frontier and it is amazing to see how nature is inspiring the same.

  13. Why do people fail at diets? This isn't a very simple question and the answer to it reaches beyond just dieting itself. If you look into how a person's lifestyle is, you will, more or less, get to know if he will be a successful dieter or not. That's why, with my clients, before staring them on a diet, I do a long talk with them about their daily routines. This discussion is imperative. Without this, you are setting up for a potential dieting failure. So, here are 5 things you need to look into before you start on a set diet plan. Fix Your Sleeping Pattern I really can't emphasise more on how utterly important sleep is. The human body hasn't changed much ever since we learned to walk erect. Sun down still means sleep for the body. Sunrise still means time to roll. You play with this rhythm, you will face consequences. I won't go into the details of what lack of sleep does. You are intelligent enough to decipher it yourself. Sleep has direct effects on your meals timings, craving issues and nutrition partitioning. You screw this, you screw your dieting success. Fix Your Daily Activity We were built to be as mobile as possible. Today, we are as immobile as we will ever get. Of course we need to do our jobs but that doesn't mean you can't be active. Walk shorter distances, help in house chores or do some grocery shopping. The point is to get yourself up and walking. Not only will you burn a ton of calories without even trying hard (N.E.A.T) but this will better your heart, joint and muscle health. © Thinkstock Fix The Way You Treat The Weekends Weekends kill diets. Adhere throughout the week and destroy your diet on the weekends. That's exactly how it goes but exactly not how it should be. If you are in caloric deficit diet, what matters is your weekly deficit. So if you do well on the weekdays and pig out on the weekends, you are only kidding yourself into failure. Look at weekends not as days where you can binge but as days that require you to be mentally stronger about your diet. You conquer this, you conquer dieting. Fix The Way You Think About Dieting The word dieting has been given such a bad reputation that most people think it is something that will make them sad. Who is to blame? The coaches who recommend bland food and salad only diets. Dieting is not bad at all. If anything, for most, it's the only road to mental and physical happiness. A diet should always be sustainable, should fit in your lifestyle and should NEVER completely keep you devoid of your favorite food. © Thinkstock Fix Your Yo-Yo Attitude And Learn To Say 'No' At the end of it, everything comes down to how your attitude towards dieting is. You think of it as a short term thing or a positive lifelong commitment. Also, the route to a successful diet will have you saying 'no' more than often. Learn to say no to foods and outings where you damn well know you will mess up your consistency.

  16. Sometimes, something as basic as dressing up may seem like a chore. The solution: Don't. There are days when you have to step out, but you just are not in the mood to dress up. With all of our lives being on the fast lane, those days seem to be showing up in abundance. But thanks to the incessant exposure to social media (many a times involuntary), shabbiness has become a luxury we just can't afford anymore. What, then, is the solution? Blogger and Sneakerhead Uday Shanker tells us how to come up with a cool outfit in three easy steps, with no 'dressing up' involved whatsoever. Source: MensXP/Anubhav Sood Step 1: Uday believes that the only factor that should really weigh in when you are selecting an outfit is comfort. If you are not comfortable with what you're wearing, even the fanciest clothes will make you look awkward. On the contrary, you might pick up, for lack of a better word, the 'simplest' of garments and throw them on, and that will work wonders given you are comfortable in them. Pick up your favourite pair of jeans and put them on. Be mindful of picking up the most relaxed pair you own. It will put you in a better mood instantly. Source: MensXP/Anubhav Sood Step 2: Take out your most comfortable, 'lazy-day' t-shirt and put it on. Is it too loose? Great. That is what works the most with this look. Now, there is a chance that it might end up looking a little shabby because of the whole anti-fit thing going on. But we know how to tackle that. One word: Accessories. Wear a sporty watch and put on a baseball hat. That's it. Source: MensXP/Anubhav Sood Step 3: The final, and the most crucial step that actually adds the cool factor to this basic outfit is your choice of footwear. Get the swankiest pair of sneakers you own and put them on. The more colourful and the more 'extra', the better. They might even be that multicoloured pair of gym trainers you love working out in. As long as they are a little eye-catching, they would do. Source: MensXP/Anubhav Sood You are now ready. Just don't hold back. After all, it's days like these that really allow us to experiment with our style - and who knows, you might just come up with a look that you're going to treasure and hold on to in the process. '31 Days Of Denim' is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features the finest men in the capital, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

  18. Of all the odd problems you will face while dating, 'getting ready' will prove to be an unexpected nemesis. For those of you who are already in a relationship, the relatability should be high here, and for those of you who are going through the twisted, winding trails of the unexplored realm called 'dating', this is just a page out of your life right now. We are talking about the struggles of getting ready for a date. The anticipation and excitement often gets transformed into disappointment, uncalled for snark, and in severe cases, yelling. It's common knowledge that we, Indian men in general, struggle a bit when it comes to getting ready for a date. Hey, no one taught us and it's an entirely hush-hush affair for most people. And once you get past the logistics, there comes a plethora of more subtle, yet potent issues such as what to wear. Is it appropriate? Is it too casual? Is it too much? And of course, getting ready within time and being there before she arrives, ideally with a bouquet, often doesn't materialize because after all we're just human. Anyway, what you need is a quick fix when it comes to getting ready, and our homeboy Hitesh Yaduvanshi here has just the remedy. © MensXP / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Hitesh is an avid traveller and a fitness freak. Naturally, he has mastered the art of sticking to schedules over time, and he applies the acquired skills to his advantage in every domain - including dating. According to Hitesh, keeping it simple is the key to never getting late, along with a bit of planning. You need to figure out a pattern for what suits you and what doesn't - a chart, if you will. We all have our favourite outfits that we know we look the best in. For some, it might be full sleeve shirts, for others, it might be something more casual and playful, like fitted t-shirts and half-sleeve shirts. The trick lies in noticing what shape your body is in, and wearing something that compliments it. Keep a track of those particular pieces, and make sure they are always laundered. Sometimes, you have to quickly change outfits according to the occasion and you cannot falter. No one said dating is easy. © MensXP / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Now, coming to how you can get ready in 5 minutes: the answer lies in one word - jeans. Before you make that face, please hear Hitesh out. If there is one article of clothing that you can safely wear for any occasion without worrying about whether it is too casual or too extra, it is jeans. Now, a date might go either way - movie with popcorn to dining at a fancy restaurant, and you need to be prepared for both without looking out of place. Your best friend for that - good ol' jeans. Just put on a pair that fits you like a dream - you already know which pair that is (and we don't mean the tightest pair). © MensXP / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno Step 2 is to get one of your favourite pieces of upper-wear out from that chart we spoke about. They are all laundered anyway, no so struggle. Just try not to pair something super tight with a pair of skinny jeans, and something extremely loose with a loose pair of jeans - the magic lies in maintaining a balance. Step 3 - put on a pair of sneakers that go with the outfit. If you aren't confident about your colour matching abilities, just wear your best pair of white sneakers. It works every time. Fail safe, and should take you less than 5 minutes. © MensXP / Wardrobe Partner: Numero Uno You, my friend, now have the power to impress every date ever, while looking like a super chill Prince Charming who doesn't need to try hard and is nonchalant enough to take the metro because he isn't late.

  21. Following a two-year hiatus from the Indian Premier League (IPL), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) returned for the eleventh edition of the country's cash-rich T20 tournament with a nail-biting win against defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) in the opening game. If their victory in the tournament's opener had everyone excited, the two-time IPL champions turned up the heat with another emphatic triumph against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Chepauk stadium yesterday. After Andre Russell's unbeaten 36-ball 88- which included 11 towering sixes - silenced the deafening home crowd and powered the visitors to an imposing total of 202 runs, the MS Dhoni-led side unleashed a blockbuster finish to secure a five-wicket win, making it two wins in as many games in the tourney. Riding on the back of Sam Billings' 23-ball 56 and Shane Watson's rapid-fire knock of 42, Chennai chased down the mammoth total with five wickets and a ball to spare. It was also only the second time when a 200-plus T20 score was successfully chased down at the MA Chidambaram stadium. © Instagram/@sambillings Well, for a team that has been sorely missed in the last few years, you'd expect their fans to be absolutely pumped, especially after they romped to the numero uno spot in the points tally. But, sadly, it wasn't the case. Chennai's hard-fought win was thoroughly marred by the Cauvery water dispute. If the grim atmosphere just a few hundred meters from the 22-yard strip at the center threatened to slither in and dampen the spirits, the shambolic antics of a few vociferous protesters inside the stadium eventually spoiled Chennai's homecoming. In an unsavory incident, a couple of miscreants gave the electric Chennai crowd a bad name after a shoe was chucked at Ravindra Jadeja - one of the oldest stalwarts of the franchise. People in the stadium hurled shoes at Jadeja and Faf du Plessis ð¬ð¡ this is such a Shameful act!! Hurling shoes on foreign players and our players is worst thing happened Today!! #ChennaiSuperKings #CSKvKKR #KKRvsCSK #Jadeja pic.twitter.com/RnYG2cb36L — Nikhil here (@rapolu_nikhil) April 10, 2018 The incident occurred in the eighth over of the Kolkata innings when an unidentified protestor hurled a shoe at Jadeja who was stationed at long-on. The footwear didn't just miss Jadeja but also fell near the boundary rope where Faf Du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi were taking a stroll. Police Arrested the Protestors who throwed Shoes at Players ! A post shared by mahi7781 ðµ (@bleed.dhonism) on Apr 10, 2018 at 8:36pm PDT The two culprits detained by the police for their idiotic act are alleged to be a part of pro-Tamil outfit Naam Tamizhar whose leader and film personality Seeman was also amongst the activists taken into custody. But, the shameful shoe-hurling incident - usually reserved for political rallies and press conferences - marred the legacy of one of the world's biggest and most prestigious T20 leagues. #KATZ #PICK kas 29 Was horrified when someone threw a shoe a @imjadeja . But later on when Ravindra Jadeja nearly got Bravo run out in the 19th over, i thought he was looking for the matching other shoe . #CloseShaves #CSKvsKKR — kasturi shankar (@KasthuriShankar) April 10, 2018 Had the Chennai based avatar of Dhoni.

REUTERS/Beck Diefenbach/Files Apple Inc on Monday released an updated version of its operating system software to fix a major microchip security flaw that affected nearly all computer chips made in the last decade. Last week, Alphabet Inc?s Google and other security researchers disclosed two major chip flaws ? one called Meltdown affecting only Intel Corp chips and one called Spectre ? that left computing devices vulnerable to hackers. "For our customers' protection, Apple doesn't disclose, discuss, or confirm security issues until an investigation has occurred and patches or releases are available," the company said on its website. The technology giant also released software updates for its Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. The iPhone maker had said on Thursday it will release a patch for the Safari web browser on its iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Apple had also said that there were no known instances of hackers taking advantage of the flaw.
