  1. 2018 was a great year for influencer marketing. A lot of accounts across different platforms like YouTube, Instagram saw exponential growth. Heck, even the Undertaker is an influencer now. Naturally, a lot of millennial decided to cash in on the growth and make money from modelling, blogging, and vlogging. But have you ever imagined what would happen if these platforms seize to exist or your account gets randomly shut down someday? Well, you can ask the influencer 'Jessy Taylor'. Or just watch her YouTube video in which she's pouring out about getting her account mysteriously deleted from Instagram. The young star, who managed to rack up an impressive 113,000 followers by the time her account got deleted, starts off her video in tears. She's explaining that her old Instagram account got mysteriously deleted. “I'm in the middle of editing and my Instagram account got deleted. I've tried to get it back, I'm calling everyone I can,” she said. It appears as though her account was taken down after people reported her on the platform. “I'm nothing without my following,” says Jessy, who moved to LA to become famous on the platform. View this post on Instagram My old acct was deleted A post shared by Jessy taylor (@duhitsjessy) on Apr 5, 2019 at 3:16pm PDT She went on to rant about the fact that she now has to get a regular nine-to-five job, which is not something that she's planning on doing. She said, “I want to say to everybody that's reporting me: Think twice because you're ruining my life, because I make all of my money online, all of it and I don't want to lose that. I know people like to see me be down and be like them and the ninety percenters - the people who work nine-to-five - that is not me. I am in LA to not be like that.“ Jessy's video went somewhat viral on the internet racking up over 455,000 views. The video, however, has just over 700 likes against 10,000 dislikes. So it's safe to say that people aren't particularly happy with the outburst. BTW, Jessy is back on Instagram now, she now has just over 7,000 followers.
  2. Drones, the gadget denied to Indian enthusiasts by the DGCA, unless you are a wedding planner or photographer, is a heated topic in the country. While we may be debating the commercial use of drones in India, people in Australia can now get coffee and food delivered to them by our flying friends. © Pexels The company that is making the service a possibility is called “Wing” owned by Google's parent company Alphabet. The company has now begun delivering items to customers just outside Canberra, Australia's capital. The company has already tested the service 3,00 times in the past 18 months and is now ready to roll the service out for “eligible homes.” The service will be available in the outskirts of Canberra, namely in suburbs of Franklin, Palmerston and Crace. The company is already adding new customers and is expected to grow that number in the coming weeks and months. The company will start delivering over the counter items such as coffee, wraps, burritos and other smaller products. © Wing The key to the company's success is partnering with local businesses and merchants who want to get their products delivered to customers. The service is currently not at scale due to the nature of the project, however, it's a great step towards reducing emissions from traditional delivery methods. © Pexels Of course, we won't get to see something like this in India as we need special permission from DGCA to just own a drone or fly them in a specific area. In fact, if you want to know the precise rules of flying a drone in India, you can read our guide here. Until then, enjoy them drones at a nearby Delhi wedding where it showers you with rose petals!

  4. You have to admit, the most exciting part about having a crush on someone is not knowing whether or not they like you back! The 'what ifs' usually rule your mind more often than not and you can't help but process a lot of assumptions at one go. The most blatant one though is figuring out how to get closer to the one you're crushing on. Not in a creepy way of course, but closer maybe emotionally, physically and proximity-wise. © Fox Star Studios We believe the only way to get definitive answers is not to sit there and assume what she's thinking but to be pro-active and act on what you already know or want to know! You should also give them subtle hints about that the fact that you're crushing on them and if feelings are mutual, you've already laid the groundwork for yourself! Hence, here are 5 ways that work like a charm in helping you get closer to your crush! (1) Follow Them On Social Media But Don't Be A Creep If you've met them once or twice, sending them a friend or follow request shouldn't be a problem. They'll surely accept it if you they know you. Once they have accepted your request, don't go nuts stalking them! I mean yes you can take a look at their profile etc. but make sure you don't 'like' anything accidentally. Also, stay away from creepy messages through DMs. That's just a straight up no! What you can do in fact is figure out what their interests and hobbies are through their profiles and use them to find a common connect. © Pinterest (2) Use Things In Common To Connect It's easier to start a conversation with someone you have something in common with than to aim in the dark. By that I mean if you find out she loves dogs and you do too, maybe strike up a conversation on love for animals or dogs. But if you don't like dogs, don't pretend you do or you'll be 'catfishing' her instead. Find what she loves doing, and if it's common with your interest and then strike up a conversation. © AA Films (3) Strike Up A Conversation Now, that you've made sufficient contact over social media with her, it's time to strike up a conversation on anything you may feel can connect you two. Don't push it though. Start the conversation slowly and steadily and build it up as you go forward. Figure out what's on her mind, try and be mildly sensitive and humorous about general stuff and try getting to know her better, once you establish a solid base. © Pinterest (4) Have A 'Memeship' Maybe your conversations don't last too long or happen as often as you want them to. That doesn't mean you go absolutely lull and silent. You can still continue to drop by her DMs with funny meme's that can make her laugh, or start a short conversation either on the meme or on the day in general. Having a memeship with someone you like is healthy and sometimes necessary. Although, be careful of the kind of content you send her through those memes. It shouldn't be something that offends her. © Twitter (5) Ask Them Out On A Date Once you've established a basic flow of communication through conversations, social media poking and memes, you can definitely move forward and ask her out on a date. Either you can ask her out for a coffee because that's a safer option than asking her out for drinks. If you do ask her out for drinks, it'll in all probability fall under the assumption of you wanting to have *** with her later. Well, most times it does. But she's your crush, so I am sure you'd like to take her out and get to know her for real before any other need for intimacy arises. So, ask her out for a nice cup of coffee, lunch or even dinner and I am sure she'll say yes! © Instagram Social media has become a necessary tool to establish any kind of communication and you need to know how to use it well if you want to get to know someone better. Don't over-indulge through it, or harass someone from it but try and follow these steps above to decently introduce yourself and your intentions, to your crush.
  5. The summer season has yet again paved its way into our lives, and while some of us have already begun to crib about the untamable spurt of sweat that it has brought along, most of us are actually preparing to take a dip into the ocean. With Bali and other international beach cities becoming as accessible as Goa (thanks to the gamut of budget travel packages that are available out there!) almost every other Instagram profile is packed with snaps of men posing shirtless on the sand, showing off those Mark Wahlberg abs, and women flaunting their bikini-bodies, looking nothing short of Miranda Kerr vacationing in Malibu! Not that we are trying to make you envious of anyone, but if you too are planning a beach vacation, it is essential to get all prepped up to look effortlessly stylish! So, to help you achieve that class-apart celebrity beach look, we have curated this four-step guide that might even fetch you paparazzi attention! Step 1: Work Your Way Towards Healthier Skin © Official Instagram/Sidharth Malhotra When you are planning a beach vacation, you know that your skin will be exposed for most of the day, and would hence require extra attention and care on your end. Furthermore, since you are going to spend a fairly good amount of time under the sun, it is essential that you ensure your skin is healthy enough to combat the harmful effects of UV rays. A glowing, and healthy skin is what makes a man more appealing, but no matter how much you aspire to have skin as ageless as Anil Kapoor's, you know that achieving it in one day is almost impossible. © Official Instagram/ Ranveer Singhn Since most men loathe spending hours on practicing skincare, here's a simple skin care routine, which won't eat up your precious hours, and yet give you beach-ready skin. 1) Ditch soap, and invest in a good quality face wash which suits your skin type. 2) Exfoliation is the key to healthy and glowing skin, so make sure that you exfoliate it two to three times a week. However, see to it that you don't over-exfoliate, for that may cause skin inflammation. 3) No one likes their skin to be flaky AF, so give it the hydration that it needs by lathering a good layer of moisturizer all-over. 4) An essential skincare practice, that most men aren't even aware of, or often skip, is applying a layer of a good quality pre-shave oil before shaving their mane. You shouldn't make the same mistake because not only does a pre-shave oil hydrate your skin, but it also ensures a smooth and close shave. Step 2: Toil Hard In The Gym © Official Instagram/Varun Dhawan Not that we want to burst your bubble, but it's more likely than not that laziness and that reckless winter binge eating has probably caused your stomach to protrude, causing your abs to bury under layers of fat. So before you decide to hit the beach, it's important that you get all geared up to toil hard at the gym. After all, when it comes to getting that perfect beach body, it goes without saying that no man wants to look any less sexy than John Abraham posing by the ocean in Dostana, sporting that sexy pair of swimming trunks for men . The only way for you to create a similar impression is by refraining from consuming carbs and doubling up your hours at the gym. Step 3: Get That Perfect Beach Attire © Official Instagram/ Karan Singh Grover For a large number of men, finding a trendsetting beach attire can be quite the daunting task. With the right guidance, however, this task can be made a lot easier. Since beaches call for breezy outfits and tropical prints, stocking up on trendy sleeveless t shirts for men and hip printed t shirts for men would make for the perfect choice. Another important component of any beach attire are modish boardshorts, or the coolest swimming trunks that you can wear, with or without a t-shirt/shirt. An important factor that you must keep in mind before investing in these garments is their fabric composition, which should ideally feature a breathable fabric (preferably cotton), so you can surf, swim, or build sand forts (you can NEVER be too old for this!) in complete ease. Step 4: Keep Your Grooming Products Handy © Shutterstock With the above mentioned steps, you have already mastered the beach look. However, it is essential that you do not give up on maintaining that look while you are ON the trip. As such, you ought to be carrying all your grooming essentials with you in a handy travel kit for men. Be it a face wash, moisturiser, or the quintessential sunscreen, to all of your shaving essentials; pre-shave oil, shaving foam, shaving brush, razor - make sure you have everything that you need before you hit the beach.
  6. The countdown for 'Avengers: Endgame' has already begun and Joe Russo's recent India visit has been quite eventful and only added to the insane buzz that is surrounding the finale that everyone is dying to watch. During his interaction with the media and fans, Joe Russo revealed many unknown facts and information around the movie franchise. Interestingly, he revealed that 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' had a connection with our beloved Rajinikanth. Apparently, he was inspired by Rajnikanth's 'Robot' for a sequence in the Avengers movie. “Robot almost influenced the climatic moments in Avengers: Age of Ultron [which was directed by Joss Whedon]. In one of the final scenes, all the Ultrons were supposed to form a large Ultron and Avengers were set to fight that but the sequence got cut for time. It was this close. It was inspired directly by Robot." He also revealed that he is aware of the 'Dabangg' franchise and if he had to choose Bollywood actors for acting in his superhero movies, he'd pick Salman Khan and Rajinikanth any day. Well, there is a reason why we call him the 'Thalaiva' and the fact that even Joe Russo is inspired by the legend, it's proof enough that he is a real life super hero for everyone . 'Avengers: Endgame' is releasing on 26th April so get ready for the madness to unleash.
  7. Getting a haircut at a neighbourhood salon is one of those things which Indian men are so accustomed to, that they still prefer it over fancy salons, sometimes in spite of being able to easily afford the latter. The reasons are aplenty, but the bottomline is, the local neighbourhood salon will always score one up against the fancy salon chains, so it's only sagacious on our part to make the most of it. Sometimes, however, things can go wrong, but it can be prevented easily by being a bit vigilant. © Thinkstock/Getty Images How, you ask? Here are 3 things you need to do as soon as you enter a local neighbourhood salon, in order to be able to avoid a bad haircut. 1. Make sure you don't enter it during a rush hour, in other words, avoid a crowded salon. You know how neighbourhood salons work - they earn purely because of their volume of work. They want to be able to attend all the customers, and as a result, the quality of work obviously suffers. No one is at fault here, because India just has that many people. An easy solution? Don't go to the salon during peak hours - for example, weekend afternoons and weekday mornings/evenings. As soon as you see a huge line of people waiting for their turn, please reschedule. This automatically will ensure a better haircut. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 2. Once you enter the salon and sit on your chair, tell Mr Barber to wait for a couple of minutes. Before he picks up his tools and starts the process, communicate to him what exactly you want from him. Be extremely didactic, and don't just assume he knows what to do with your hair. Yes, it's his job to get the haircut done, but it's not his job to read your mind and figure out what you want for your hair. Make sure he listens carefully and understands, before letting him start the process. © Thinkstock/Getty Images 3. Be assertive during the process, but not overbearing. Keep a close track of the process by looking into the mirror, and see whether it's going towards the direction you want it to. The moment you see some deviation, immediately but gently point it out. Often, we just let the barber take over, and start watching the hilariously dubbed Tamil/Telugu movie on the TV kept up on a shelf, losing track of the process. The result? Often things drastically go wrong - trivial things that could have easily been prevented, and because it's on your head/face, even the smallest mistake can make you look horrible for a few weeks. Being a little vigilant can help you ensure that you never end up with a bad haircut at a local neighbourhood salon.
  8. As a coach, I face a few questions a lot. "What are the golden rules for fat loss?" "How can we accelerate the fat loss process?" Though there aren't any 'rules' as such that you need to follow, you can follow a few simple guidelines which can help you to burn more fat and speed up your fat loss journey. via GIPHY Let's look at three such 'rules' that will help you in your fat loss: 1. Prioritize Resistance Training This is a mistake made by a majority of the people training for fat loss. They believe that cardio will help them more for fat loss and resistance training is only for people who are preparing for some kind of bodybuilding competition. This is not true. Resistance training will help you build muscle mass which in turn will help you to burn more calories even while you are outside the gym. Muscles are metabolically more active and thus your body burns more calories to build and maintain more muscle mass. So while you may burn more calories in a cardio session in the gym, it is resistance training that will help you speed up that sluggish metabolism and accelerate your fat loss journey. 2. Up Your Protein Intake via GIPHY Once you implement rule number one, you will have to compliment it with rule number two. When you do intense resistance training for at least 4-5 days in a week, your body will need an appropriate amount of protein to repair the broken muscle tissue. 1 gram per kg of body weight is a good place to start with and thereby you can increase it as per your individual requirements. Consuming enough protein in your daily diet also helps you to regulate your hunger which is a major issue while doing fat loss. You should always prefer foods in its natural form like chicken, milk, fish, tofu, eggs etc rather than taking it through supplements. This will increase your satiety factor too. 3. Moderate (Or Stop) Your Alcohol Consumption via GIPHY I won't say that a pint of beer will derail your fat loss journey altogether, but yes, frequent alcohol consumption will actually delay the results that you are looking for. Firstly, excessive alcohol consumption has a direct impact in slowing down your metabolism and secondly, there are possible chances that you won't stick to your diet once you start consuming alcohol. I've never seen anybody having just the drinks and not eating along anything else along with it. That anything else generally takes the form of food items that are high in calories. Since alcohol in itself is a high-calorie drink(cocktails and mixers) when it is combined with other high-calorie foods, it becomes a problem. Fat loss means that you need to follow a calorie deficit diet for a certain period of time. It becomes difficult to maintain that deficit when you have such high-calorie meals every now and then. Thus it is better to cut down or rather stay away from alcohol for some time.

  9. Here's a realistic scenario for you. For some xyz reason, you have to shave the beard off your face. However, shaving your beard is like a nightmare that you don't want to take part in. You're afraid of razor burns and cuts. But if you shave while taking care of everything, you might possibly master the technique of the good shave sans razor burns. 1. Take A Hot Bath © Getty Images Hot water makes your skin soft which reduces friction between your skin and the beard and helps the razor glide through your skin smoothly. 2. Lather Up © Getty Images Take two blobs of the shaving cream and massage gently on your face and neck then you wait for a while and let it sit for 1 to 2 minutes. It's important to remember that a dry shave drags the blade across the skin, increasing the likelihood of ingrown hairs, razor bumps, and irritation. 3. Use A Fresh Blade © Getty Images Men use old blades that cause tears in the skin that can be uncomfortable. A standard razor can be used about 5 to 7 times before it gets spoilt. 4. Respect The Order © Getty Images Start with the sides of your beard, then move to your neck and up your chin, and end with your moustache. Mixing things up might lead to haphazard growth. 5. Reduce The Pressure © Getty Images Pushing hard against your skin only increases skin irritation. Avoid rough handling by smoothly gliding by using a pre-shave essential oil. 6. Rinse & Repeat © Getty Images Wash the razor after every two strokes to clear stubble and cream that can cause nicks. Finally, apply a moisturizer to help your skin heal.
  10. Another account of cultural and religious hate based on pure ignorance surfaced, when Instagram comedian Jess Hilarious, aka Jessica Moore boasted about how she allegedly got 4 turbaned Sikh men 'kicked off' a plane because she felt 'threatened' by their presence. (c)Twitter The comedienne was rightfully slammed for her Islamophobic comments by lots of people on Twitter and a compilation of the comments she made, was posted on Twitter by activist Simran Jeet Singh. Take a look: Four innocent Sikhs were kicked off a plane today because this woman was scared of how they looked. Please watch and share this video to understand how hate hurts us all. (see thread below for more info on the Sikh religion and identity) pic.twitter.com/xg8vSfgsYm — Simran Jeet Singh (@SikhProf) 17 March 2019 After the video was out, a bunch of people took to Twitter to verbally bash her hatred and absolutely ignorant and racist rant. Hi @jess_hilarious, I hear that you're fearful of people who look like me. Let me know if you ever want to chat. I'm happy to show you we're normal(ish) people and that you have nothing to fear. peace, a sikh https://t.co/RTmwziDeO5 — Simran Jeet Singh (@SikhProf) 18 March 2019 I thought I'd reshare this after @jess_hilarious managed to get 4 Sikhs off of a plane because she confused them with Muslims. I think it's disgusting that she would not only do this, but share that she did this and then think it was something we'd find funny after recent events. https://t.co/2VChRhI7BB — Kat Blaque (@kat_blaque) 17 March 2019 It's really hurtful that some people see turbans and view that as something to be afraid of. Sikhs wear the turban/have long hair as a way to be publicly identified as in service to others. The idea is if you see someone in a turban, you'd know you could go up and ask for help. — Aditi Juneja (@AditiJuneja3) 17 March 2019 The fact that Jess hilarious thinks it's funny to be 'threatened' by 4 Sikh people entering the plane because she thought they were Muslim and bragging about them being kicked out after the New Zealand incident is disgusting. pic.twitter.com/LjBxSyuB5T — yas (@Adoomies1) 17 March 2019 Jess Hilarious' anti-Muslim rhetoric sheds light on a very important topic; Islamophobia within the black Christian community — dylan (@dylanthegypsy) 17 March 2019 4 innocent Sikh passengers kicked off a plane cos celebrity @jess_hilarious was uncomfortable with their APPEARANCE What a shame Airline company acceded to her request! Sikhs have been most helpful community in times of trouble yet they get such discrimination @SushmaSwaraj Ji pic.twitter.com/suGHcFo5MD — Manjinder S Sirsa (@mssirsa) 18 March 2019 @jess_hilarious you are racist af & sound so damn ignorant. The Sikh man was minding his business, is that what you felt THREATENED about?! #JessHilarious pic.twitter.com/b2DdZJYvU5 — s a r a (@sara_zfa) 17 March 2019 A day after Muslims were ambushed and murdered while praying (death toll now at 51), Jess Hilarious hops on Al Gore's internet to brag about+defend getting 4 people with turbans kicked off a flight because she didn't feel safe. — Candice Marie Benbow (@CandiceBenbow) 17 March 2019 Getting four Sikhs off a plane because she felt threatened shows the incredible stupidity of @jess_hilarious. The airline should have drop kicked her ass off the plane. https://t.co/Z7fySepfDn — rolandsmartin (@rolandsmartin) 18 March 2019 So while we mourn 50 Muslims who were gunned down in New Zealand and Muslims face Islamophobic harassment across the country on the streets and online, Jess Hilarious targets 4 Sikh men for wearing turbans and gets the removed from flight because she's afraid of Muslims. — Margari Aziza (@Margari_Aziza) 17 March 2019 When she was slammed with rhetoric hate comments about her behaviour towards 4 Sikh men, the woman went on a rant over a video cussing people who were speaking up against her. She justified her actions saying “F*** y'all, I feel how I feel. I felt threatened and that was it. F*** y'all." (c)Twitter This probably isn't the first time Sikhs have faced racist hate all over America. Post 9/11, there were attacks on the Sikh community as they were misunderstood for radical Islam fundamentalists. But the fact that 9/11 was 18 years ago and yet people live in absolute ignorance is quite sad TBH. There are some latent lessons due about how not all Muslims are terrorists and how the Sikh community is not religiously fanatic or a threat, to have them evacuated from an airplane! But because she probably thrives on irrational content that she assumes is funny. She thought she could take a dig at calling someone out as a threat just for fun, and she'd get away with it. Well, that's not how it works sista! (c)Twitter Moore did post a video on her Instgaram handle apologising for her behaviour but you know, sometimes an apology doesn't really hold any merit, once the damage is done. Here, take a look at it anyway: Please don't believe everything you see and hear, this is what it really is. A post shared by Jess Moore (@jesshilarious_official) on Mar 18, 2019 at 7:27pm PDT The woman has also offered to donate $15,000 to the victims of the New Zealand tragedy. Well, that's great Jess, but maybe it's time to get schooled again for your lack of knowledge! Jess Hilarious is blatantly ignorant lmao, first off those were Sikhs on the plane and besides, had they been Muslims why would you behave that way despite having Muslims in your family? ð¤¦ð»‍âï¸ pic.twitter.com/0GOMnSo8b7 — Too $hort (@sukhisofly) 17 March 2019 All we can say is that Jess Hilarious is not really hilarious after all and we hope her ignorance doesn't get her into any more trouble!
  11. Just a few months ago, Disney fired James Gunn, the director of both the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movies, and that too very famously, might I add. It was all because of a bunch of problematic tweets by the director and despite the outpouring support from fans and the cast of GOTG, Disney stayed firm in their decision. But, that was months ago and so much can happen in that time. Well, he got rehired. Today, James Gunn tweeted a message thanking everyone for all the support they have shown for him. â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/gdMQjlqIjs — James Gunn (@JamesGunn) March 15, 2019 While a lot of people are happy that he's back to direct the third GOTG movie, a lot of people have also shown their disapproval of Disney basically backtracking. People are divided over this development and a lot of them are calling out Disney for just waiting for the controversy to die down so they could hire him again. They did lie, tho. disney explicitly saying that they were not going to rehire james gunn but then just waiting a few months for the whole situation to die down is so disgusting — saz (@syndullatano) March 15, 2019 The jokes were not okay. even if they were just 'jokes' (which it's much more than that anyway) this behaviour is what leads to the normalisation of these awful things happening in real life and someone like james gunn shouldn't be given a platform like that in any circumstance — saz (@syndullatano) March 15, 2019 Some people are willing to give him a second chance. I'm not exactly a fan of James Gunn's movies or their messages. And making jokes about sexual abuse is harmful because it contributes to rape culture. However, it's imperative we allow people space to grow and change! It appears Gunn has sincerely learned from his past mistakes. https://t.co/dh8iIBsPbL — Jonathan McIntosh (@radicalbytes) March 15, 2019 Do people change so easily? Disney re-hires James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy 3! The controversy was real (and understandable IMO) but I agree there needs to be a way for "redemption" for people like Gunn who have shown remorse and proven over *years* they are not the person those tweets were painting. https://t.co/3UnFLHJLYo — Patrick Beja (@NotPatrick) March 15, 2019 But, is an apology enough? I am incredibly happy about this. Gunn said some Fucked up shit. He was also taken to task about it during GotG vol 1 and apologized. I am cool with punishing people for shit. I HATE double jeopardy. Glad to see this. https://t.co/JNcQ9FLzvx — Ben ðð ðð¦ (@BeninBiloxi) March 15, 2019 Okay, then. I understand if you don't like this and disagree. Trust me I get it. I'm not gonna become a James Gunn stan account but yes I do believe what he said is forgivable. If it ever turns out he really has ever hurt children I'll pour the gasoline FOR you and light the match. — Ben ðð ðð¦ (@BeninBiloxi) March 15, 2019 Let's hope so. this whole situation is very complicated because he wasn't a teenager talking shit on the internet, he was a grown man... but he also apologized more than once. also, the cast is so loyal to him, it makes me think he indeed changed and is a better, decent human being + — ananda (@pilotdanvers) March 15, 2019 Yes, it is. it just feels cheap of marvel/disney dismissing him and then rehiring him less than a year later and even accepting his terms of directing ss2 first... like? much to think about — ananda (@pilotdanvers) March 15, 2019 Dave Bautista would be happy. A lot of us stood by #JamesGunn when all this shit went down. The whole cast stood by him, but no one, not one person, did so more than @DaveBautista who I hope feels vindicated tonight. Watching him stand by his friend was incredibly touching. And now we all get GotG vol.3! — Dantooine (@Danburden1138) March 15, 2019 Quite possible. James Gunn is back on Guardians 3. Bautista must've been standing outside Bob Iger's house like pic.twitter.com/JSTDTa3HmZ — Issa Deadman (@CPerry404) March 15, 2019 Well. The #RehireJamesGunn worked, even though Disney confirmed it like 3 times in a row that that wouldn't happen. I even told some people online that it wasn't worth it. So if that can happen, #ReleaseTheSnyderCut @wbpictures @WBHomeEnt !!!!! — Leonardo Oliveira (@Leo_Rafael99) March 15, 2019 Everyone's happy, I guess. The best thing about this story, besides him getting a second chance, is that he's still going to do both films. https://t.co/zjnDNtTps1 — Mike (Insert Game Here) (@mpallard329) March 15, 2019

She has also won bronze at both, Commonwealth Games, Glasgow (2014) and Asian Championships (2015). View this post on Instagram Happy Olympic day ! I feel so honoured to be an Olympian and proud to have represented india ð®ð³... A post shared by Dipa Karmakar (@dipakarmakarofficial) on Jun 23, 2018 at 10:33am PDT Started working on her talents and improving her skills at an extremely early age of six in the city of Agartala in Tripura, Karmakar also suffered from a postural deformity called flat feet which used to adversely affect her performance and hindered her from reaching her true potential. According to her former coach Bisbeshwar Nandi, Karmakar used to put in extra hours of hard work to naturally bring a curve to her feet, leading her to contest and win more than 75 medals during her ongoing illustrious career. At just 25 years of age, she is considered to be one of the most influential members of the society, especially the younger generation of sports enthusiasts. Her ability to not give up under unfair circumstances, the relentless dedication and the hunger to prove her worth to the world inspired Mattel Inc. the toy company that produces the fashionable and iconic 'Barbie' dolls. On the 60th anniversary of the toy, the company decided to pay homage to 20 women hailing from 17 countries, who have been on great significance and are considered to be “real-life heroes” for their contribution to their respective fields and the society. Karmakar made the list and was honoured with her very own Barbie doll that donned a full-sleeve red leotard while also showing off the bronze medal she earned during the 2014 Commonwealth.

  13. For a lot of men, shaving is just another thing that has to be done, which is why their daily shaving routine is pretty basic - lather, shave and rinse. What's more? A lot of those men expect perfect results when they look in the mirror, even though their shaving routine is always less-than-perfect. However, shaving is more than just a chore - it's a rite of passage for every man. As such, it's worth putting some time and effort into your shaving routine, especially when you consider how impactful a truly great shave can actually be for you. Which is not to say that achieving the perfect shave requires some great sacrifice on your part. In fact, transforming your daily shave from an exasperating chore to a sought after part of your morning ritual is fairly easy. All you need to do is spare just a little bit of your valuable time for preparation, arm yourself with the right tools, and adhere to the following five simple steps. Achieve A Perfect Shave Every Time With These Easy Steps STEP 1: Preparation Is Key © Pexels The perfect shave requires the perfect surface, so the first step is all about preparing your skin before you unsheath your shaving paraphernalia. Use hot water to wash your face thoroughly - it'll soften your stubble, making your razor's job easier. Hot water will also open up your pores, which offers the blade a smooth surface to glide across. Lastly, it will help clear away the initial layer of oil, dirt, and dead skin, which can clog up all types of razors. STEP 2: Getting Down To Business © Wikimedia Commons Once your skin has been prepped, the next step is to get a nice, rich lather going. Apply a top quality shaving cream or the best shaving foam to your skin and work it into a lather using a shaving brush. This will hold your facial hair in an upright position, allowing the blade to approach the base of the hair which results in a smoother and closer shave. For an even more luxurious experience, you can even use a pre-shave beard oil on your skin before you lather up. STEP 3: In The Act © Unsplash Now comes the most technical part - the wielding of the blade. These days, the best electric shavers are waterproof, which means they can be used for wet as well as dry shaves, and they tend to do an admirable job, especially if all you want is a trim to keep your beard well groomed. However, if a close, clean shave is what you're after, a razor blade should be your weapon of choice, and the right technique will elevate the quality of your shave no end. You might have heard about the importance of shaving 'with the grain' without fully understanding what it means. Run your fingers over your stubble - if it feels smooth, you're moving with the grain and if it's rough, you're going against it. Shaving with the grain simply means moving the razor in the direction your hair is growing in, which makes for a much smoother, closer shave without running the risk of razor burns, cuts, and other skin irritations. Always remember to use gentle strokes, letting the weight of the razor dictate how much pressure you apply to the skin. STEP 4: Respect Your Razor © Pexels You'll get the best shave only as long as you treat your shaving implements with care, which is why looking after your blades is crucial. Rinse your razor blades after each stroke with hot water to dislodge any hair or shaving gel stuck in between. The most important thing to keep in mind is always having fresh, sharp blades at hand. Even the best safety razor won't be as effective if it doesn't come equipped with sharp blades. Old, worn out, and even dirty blades are more likely to cause nicks and cuts. And remember, your razor should be doing all the work here - if you have to exert a lot of effort, it's probably time to switch out your blunt blades for new razor sharp ones. STEP 5: Don't Forget About After-Shave Care © Shutterstock A shave isn't over when you put the razor down and wash your face - the perfect shave always ends with the proper aftercare for your face. Use cold water for the final face wash, as it helps close your pores. Always remember to pat dry with a towel, as rubbing can cause redness and irritation. Your final act should be to apply a good alcohol-free post-shave balm or cream. This will prevent your skin from drying out, while simultaneously soothing, hydrating, and nourishing it - leaving you with smoother, healthier skin and a classy clean shave!
  14. If you were to pick just one muscle group to grow the best which would result in you looking muscular, what would it be? Pretty sure a lot of you would pick the biceps. But if I were to pick one, it would be the shoulders any given day. Why is that? Shoulders are the muscles that give your upper body the illusion of being big and the much desired V-taper. The V-taper is what the golden era glorified. People found the taper aesthetic and beautiful, all for a reason. © YouTube A lot of you may be doing front raises and dumbbell overhead presses but do not see any good changes in your shoulder. The main reason for this is that you are not training your shoulder for all its functions. Let's understand the functions and look at the exercises you should start incorporating if you want to build those 3D shoulders. Your shoulder muscle is made up of three different muscle fibres 1. Anterior deltoid or front delt 2. Lateral deltoid or side delt 3. Posterior deltoid or rear delt These muscle fibres have distinctive functions or movement patterns. For example: 1. The anterior deltoid enables you to perform shoulder flexion, i.e. raising your shoulders in the front of your body. 2. The lateral deltoid allows you to perform shoulder abduction, i.e. taking the shoulder away from the body at the side. 3. The posterior deltoid enables you to perform horizontal shoulder abduction, i.e. moving your shoulder away in a horizontal position. To build those 3D delts, you need to create a mechanical tension and overload it with time for all the muscle fibres that make up the shoulder. Do you get it why doing a hundred sets of front raises have not yet built your shoulders? Here are the exercises you should do to build 3D shoulders: 1. A Vertical Press © YouTube The vertical pressing has to be the bread and butter of your shoulder workout. You could pick an overhead barbell press or overhead shoulder press to activate the front delts. Data has shown that any vertical press in an incline from 30 degrees to 90 degrees activates the front delts. If you find overhead pressing difficult, you could use a high-incline dumbbell or barbell press as well. Front raises is not a good option to include in my opinion, as a lot of people simply ego lift here. Due to internal rotation during the movement, there are chances of shoulder impingement. 2. A Lateral Raise © YouTube The function of your side delt is to lift your shoulder to the side. Lateral raises are your best bet when it comes to building the side delts. You can pick any method that suits you better and that you enjoy. For example, you could pick any of the following: a. Lateral dumbbell raises b. Lateral cable raises c. Lateral kettlebell raises 3. A Rear Pull © Scott Herman Fitness Isolation exercises beat compounds when it comes to your rear delts. The exercises that help you engage your rear delts the most are: a. Rear flyes on a machine b. Face Pulls Coming to the volume and frequency to build 3D shoulders, here's what the data says: a. A minimum frequency of 2x per week b. 8 to 20 sets per muscle or 80 to 210 reps per muscle group. I would suggest including shoulders in a push-pull-legs or an upper-lower fashion and incorporating exercises for all the three muscle fibres to build 3D shoulders.

  15. The official websites of Pakistan's Foreign Ministry and the Army were hacked on Saturday night, making them inaccessible for users outside the country. Later, several other websites were hacked and defaced. The hackers left behind a message stating "We will never forget #14/02/2019". © Reuters According to the report in Pakistan's Dawn, the government websites were working fine within the country, but users from other countries were unable to access them. Ministry spokesperson Muhammad Faisal said, "The website is functioning without any issues in Pakistan. However, visitors to the website from Holland, Australia, Britain, and Saudi Arabia are facing difficulty opening it." © Reuters Several media reports say a list of the hacked websites is being circulated on WhatsApp and other social media platforms claiming that "Pakistan has faced it's worst cyber attack in history, in last 72 hours". A lot of these websites have been brought back to normal now. "The IT team is currently occupied in thwarting the hackers onslaught," Faisal added. The list of Pakistani websites hacked include: https://sindhforests.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.sindhforests.gov.pk/op.html https://pkha.gov.pk/op.html https://ebidding.pkha.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.pkha.gov.pk/op.html http://kda.gkp.pk/op.html http://blog.kda.gkp.pk/op.html http://mail.kda.gkp.pk/op.html https://kpsports.gov.pk/op.html https://mail.kpsports.gov.pk/op.html http://seismic.pmd.gov.pk/op.html http://namc.pmd.gov.pk/op.html http://rmcpunjab.pmd.gov.pk/FlightsChartFolder/op.html http://ffd.pmd.gov.pk/modis/op.html https://badin.opf.edu.pk/14-02-2019.php http://radar.pmd.gov.pk/islamabad/op.html Read more at: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/68042727.cms?utm_source=contentofinterest&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=cppst Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs website was accessible in India, but an attempt to open the Pakistan Army website showed the following message: "The owner of this website has banned the country or region your IP address is in (IN) from accessing this website." © BCCL Pakistan believes the hackers are of Indian origin because defaced websites referred to the recent Pulwama attack. These cyber attacks by Indian ethical hackers come after over 40 CRPF personnel were killed on 14th February 2019 in one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir. Previously, fingers were pointed to India-based hackers when the official website of PPP was found defaced in June 2017. © BCCL Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the attack, and the group is known to be shielded by the Pakistani administration. The Indian government has slammed Pakistan over its terror links, but the neighbouring country has denied charges. Over 50 countries have condemned the barbaric attack and expressed support to India in its fight against terrorism. Immediately after the attack, India withdrew the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status, which was accorded to Pakistan in 1996.
  16. Nothing spoils one's mood more than a bad haircut. Every time you visit your hairdresser, you shouldn't have to leave feeling like you are dying a little from the inside. Sure, it's not the end of the world. But at that exact moment, it sure feels like it. Well, hair sure can grow back quickly but it still doesn't undo the damage. Reassuring enough? If not, you could expand your hat collection. But what's key is to amend these little errors while getting a haircut. Follow this step-by-step definitive guide to avoid getting an awkward haircut: 1. Research Properly © Gettyimages Being people who don't even buy a piece of clothing without doing a fair bit of research, it is surprising how many people go to the salon without any information. Do a fair bit of research about the type of hair you have and what kind of cut you should go with. You can even go to your hairstylist for a consultation prior to the day of getting a haircut. 2. Consider A Little Show And Tell © angieslist Fancy a haircut sported by an actor or an athlete? You may as well get it. Do a little social media digging and find a haircut you like. Show your barber that image and ask if it can be replicated with your hair type and face shape. Keep your options open and keep backups. The only way to fend off a bad haircut is to make sure you get a good one. 3. Pay Attention To The Finishing Touches © liveabout Every man knows that more than the process, it's the last 10 minutes of the haircut that actually makes or breaks a look. The finishing touches can do more for your haircut than the cutting part. Pay attention to the finishing touches, men. This is the perfect opportunity to get some styling advice. Even the most impressive haircut wouldn't be helpful if you don't do it justice by using the correct styling method and products. Ask your hairstylist for styling tips and products to keep your mane as good every day! 4. Don't Be Afraid To Mix It Up © gettyimages When men find a salon, tailor, barber and even a bartender that they like, they never go to anyone else. These are men's ride-or-die people. If you're one of those people and are sick of sporting the same hairstyle for years, maybe it's time to switch. To be able to communicate to your barber is a task in its own that you shouldn't skip. But if you've tried to communicate with your hairstylist about that and keep getting the same old look, switch. Don't be afraid to take the plunge. Bonus advice: Schedule your haircut appointments every 4 weeks to keep your trim fresh AF. Follow these guidelines and you will definitely save yourself the pain of looking for new hats to cover up an awkward haircut.
  17. There have been numerous reports of PUBG addiction in the last few months and we've even seen people resorting to physical harm after getting addicted to the game. A recent report by the Quartz states that a PUBG fan spends more than 8 hours in a week on an average on the game. Institutions have sent out circulars asking for a complete ban on the game, and people have even sent requests to the government for initiation of a ban. While we'd laugh at a ban, the situation is actually getting serious. More than 120 cases of PUBG addiction were registered at Services for Healthy Use of Technology (SHUT) clinic in National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS). © YouTube Games are supposed to be a source of entertainment, and getting hooked onto them at the cost of work or studies should never be a choice. The symptoms of addiction include deprivation of sleep, loss of real life interests, and subjectively lower attendance along with poor academic performance. If you're a victim of the game's addiction, here are a few steps you can take to ensure healthy usage of technology. © Razer Firstly, you need to start accepting responsibility and know that you are addicted to the game. We cannot solve an issue without acknowledging its existence. Secondly, you have to understand the impact it's having on your day to day life. Are your studies getting affected due to the game? If you're working, has your performance and focus at work changed? If the answer is yes, start thinking about your other hobbies and activities. PUBG was launched nearly a year back, what was your entertainment back then? How did you spend time refreshing yourself? Finding healthy alternatives to passing time can help in distancing yourself from the game. © YouTube You also need to stop blaming the game for captivating you. The phone, the game, the developer etc. aren't responsible for getting you hooked. And no, we don't mean to say abandon the game completely. Overconsumption of anything is hazardous, draw a line between entertainment and addiction. Set yourself time limits and follow them. A good way to understand how much time you've wasted is to keep a track and calculate how many hours you've lost in a week. © Pexels Also, don't be embarrassed to ask for help. Share the issue with your close friends and family and ask them to give a hand. PUBG could also be a distraction you've chosen because of other stressful situations in life. Lastly, even technology can help you out thanks to rising awareness of technology addiction. Both, Google and Apple have recognised that mobile phone addiction in the modern world is a serious problem and are trying to bring a viable solution. If you game on smartphones, you can easily follow the below steps to self reuglate your gaming addiction: For Android © YouTube Last year, Google launched the Digital Wellbeing program with Android Pie update and it aims to help you reduce your smartphone usage. All you need to do is download the app from Play Store, and head to the "Settings" menu. Scroll down and tap "Accessibility", you'll come across two splash pages. The hub has a circle at the top, and the number in the middle shows how long the screen has been turned on. With various colours, the circle shows the apps you spend the most time on. Using these analytics, the system knows which apps you use the most and it tracks your usage over a period of time. © Google Now, you can use the "App Timer" to restrict usage within a certain period of time. Let's say you mark PUBG for "30 minutes", after 30 minutes of gameplay, the app will minimize and a popup appears saying you've hit your allotted screen time. Even the app icon will turn grey indicating it's not available, and taping it would open a screen reminding you about App Limits. Lastly, you can set a "Wind Down" mode that basically makes your phone go grey-scale and the Do Not Disturb mode is automatically switch on. Even a blue light filter is switched on to help you actually wind down to sleep. All you need to do is set a time period, for example 10PM to 6AM. The phone knows that's your sleep cycle and winds down the phone to prevent you from using the phone. For iOS © YouTube Even iOS has a similar feature called Screen Time and it's natively supported on iOS 12. Just go to the "Settings" app and scroll down to "Screen Time". Switch on the feature and it'll start collecting usage logs in the background. You can see when you used your phone, on which apps, and how for long for. You can also see how the overall time you spent on your phone compares to the average. To set up "App Limits", just hit "Add Limit", choose a category, and set your timer. When you hit the wall, Screen Time will let you know with a full-screen notification. Assume this to be your warning message since the notification gives you a ignore option and 15-minute extension. © Apple Unlike Android's Digital Wellbeing, you can select a particular app and need to select a category like social media or gaming. It has a "Downtime" feature that will restrict usage of external apps within the set period and only a few stock apps will be accessible. These are just a few tools that'll help you remind yourself, "You're playing too much!"
  18. 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.

  19. As if dealing with acne wasn't cumbersome in itself, 'bacne' a.k.a back acne is worse. via GIPHY Here's the thing, if you've dealt with acne as a kid, you're more likely to face body acne as an adult. There are obviously exceptions. The thing with body acne is that it's less accessible, more resilient and hard to tackle with. via GIPHY But that doesn't mean you let the acne stay. There are ways around it to nix the troublesome acne forever: 1. Wash Them With An Acne Cleanser © Shutterstock You ideally need to find a cleanser with a good formula that uses a combination of salicylic acid and glycolic to cleanse out the oil clogged pores. 2. Use A Scrub © Shutterstock A good scrub sloughs away the dead skin cells. Use a scrub to gently rub across your back to get rid of the acne. The scrub also helps rid the skin of residue. 3. You Could Also Add A Spot Treatment via GIPHY A cream essentially made to reduce pimples can similarly work extremely well. Just like you use a spot treatment cream to target the pimples on your face, you can also use it on the rest of your body for a similar result. 4. Take Good Care After Working Out via GIPHY Working out is great for your health but not for your skin, unfortunately. If you have a bad case of acne, it's best to take a bath right after you work out so that the sweat doesn't screw with your skin.
  20. When it comes to dating, life becomes really hard for a man. All thanks to the f****d up *** ratio of our country. Getting matches on a dating app isn't easy if you don't have the looks of Ryan Gosling and humour of Chandler Bing. On apps like Tinder, where girls get 30 matches in one day, guys get one measly match in 30 days. via GIPHY If you too are swiping right and right and still not able to find a match, worry no more. Other dating apps have come in picture and some of them are as good as Tinder, if not more. via GIPHY Here are 5 such apps which you can join to improve your odds of getting more dates: 1. Bumble Bumble has been in India for a while but officially it was launched recently by Priyanka Chopra. This is the app which has better UI than Tinder and somehow, pictures on it look even better. Bumble works on the same principle as Tinder: swipe and match. However, here you can enter more than just your bio and pictures. via GIPHY Bumble lets you enter your height, your drinking and smoking habits, whether you have pets, whether you have/want kids, what are you here for (something casual/relationship/marriage), your zodiac sign, and even your political leaning. All these things apart from your bio. In addition, it lets you answer questions like two truths and a lie, recent act of kindness, and many more. And if you are bad at breaking the ice, worry not. Here girls have to make the first move. Guys can't text first. It definitely is a great alternative for Tinder. 2. Hinge This one broke the swiping barrier and launched a whole new concept - anyone can message anyone. And if you're bad at even messaging, then you can just like the other person's picture and they will get a notification. via GIPHY Hinge has found a decentish way to check the authenticity of the profile. On Hinge, you can't get away by just uploading one or two pictures. You will have to upload six pictures, no more and no less. Like Bumble, Hinge also gives you an option to put three questions in your profile. Putting questions and answers make it easy for the other person to break the ice. 3. Truly Madly It doesn't have a very pretty UI, but it does the trick. This one is again for people who are not a big fan of bios. Truly Madly gave no space to bios but put the latest fad, hashtags, to describe yourself. You can use up to five hashtags to define yourself, or your hobbies, or what are you looking for. via GIPHY The chat room of this app has some bugs in the latest version where if you type a long message, sometimes only half of it gets delivered. So this is a perfect app for the people who use “chatroom here sucks, let's move to Instagram” line. This app is also good when it comes to privacy, as your name won't be displayed to anyone until you get matched with the person. And, for an ice-breaker after getting a match, Truly Madly has games where you answer certain questions and can check what the other person answered to see how compatible you are. This app also gives you an option to mention your favourite music, movies, books, food, and games. Again, becomes a good ice-breaker. 4. Happen If you're lazy and love your bed too much, this isn't the app for you. Happen shows you people only in the area where you are or where you have been. If you cross a person and you both have Happen installed, it will show your profile in each other's phone. via GIPHY Happen comes quite handy if you're too shy to pick girls in a pub. When you see a girl in a club you like, you can just take out your phone, if she is on Happen then it will show her profile. If you both press like, then bam, it's a match made on Happen! You can go to her and talk or if being an introvert is your thing, then just chat over the app until you're comfortable enough to buy her drinks. 5. Aisle If you are looking for something casual, then this isn't the app for you. As the name suggests, it is made for the prospect of finding a long-term partner. Also, the app isn't free and after a short trial, you need to shed some good money in order to like profiles. If you have decided to join it, make sure you have plenty of time when you sit to make a profile. via GIPHY You will have to answer quite a few questions, actually, 5-page long questionnaire. And it gets checked and verified by their team. Only after the verification, you can join the app. But all this seems worth it when you don't see fake profiles on the app. Because of such lengthy joining process and the joining fee, only people who are genuinely looking for something serious make their profile here. I hope you made it till here without downloading all or a few of the mentioned apps. Desperation has no place in the dating world!
  21. Sometimes, we fool ourselves into believing that we something we are not. We define our own limits, just because we have always been a certain way. That was me a few years back. All that mattered to me was academics, and exercise and proper nutrition were just not a part of my world. I spent the first 20 years of my life being a kid who gave absolutely zero importance to fitness. Physics, Chemistry and Maths were my protein, carbs and fats. My Savior – Junk Food! Age 20, I find myself studying Computer Science in IIT-BHU. To be honest, at this point, I had nothing in my life that stirred an ounce of excitement in me. Around this time, I also got somewhat depressed. Needless to say, I had shitty eating habits. I'd eat anything that I felt like, whenever I felt like, and in whatever amounts I felt like. Motivation from Jacked Guys I really envied guys in my college with good physiques. They had abs and chiselled chests. I, on the other hand, was totally out of shape and had a belly, which I never really liked. Hell, I wanted a “good body” too! It was something I found myself getting excited to work for! So, I started going to the gym. I goofed around in and out of the gym for 18 months, just showing up fairly consistently and hoping to get “fit https://www.mensxp.com/health/body-building/48916-5-easy-ways-to-get-fit-without-going-to-the-gym.html ”. I had no knowledge of nutrition and training. My diet was totally random. I used to think that going to the gym and “working out hard”, alone was enough to build my dream physique. And no one around me told me any better. After all, they must call it “fat burning workouts” for a reason, right? Wrong. Sick and tired of getting nowhere, I started studying the work of top experts in the fitness field. The likes of Dr Eric Helms, Dr Brad Schoenfeld and Dr Alan Aragon. And it blew my mind! I spent endless hours researching information on the subject. I was loving it. It was all making sense now, and I wondered why there were so many misconstrued notions around fitness. I realized the irreplaceable role of diet and laughed at all the time I waste fooling around in the gym. Meal Preparation I started preparing my own meals instead of eating in the college mess. I applied whatever I learned into my own life, and I started seeing results in no time. I was so excited at this point in my life. I had never been more disciplined and bodybuilding had come to become my burning obsession. My life changed completely. I realised how important is it to read and study the work of successful people in whatever area you want to be successful in. Advice to Everyone Reading This If you can relate to my story, and have not started your fitness journey yet. Just start. Follow the right people who advocate science and not bro-science. Do the right things and you have my word that you'd be a totally different person 6 months from now.
  22. So, you just got inked. That's great! But, you can't stop there. You need to tediously follow the aftercare tips so that the skin underneath your tat stays healthy. This way your tattoo's going to sustain in its glory in years to come. 1. Follow The Sacred Advice By Your Tattoo Artist The aftercare instructions vary from studio to studio. It's important to follow the instructions that your artist gives you. Some places also give a printed leaflet. Follow the rules like the Gospel. 2. Gently Wash Your Tattoo With Water The most common advice you'll get is to cover your tattoo for 2-5 hours, then gently washing it with lukewarm water and mild soap. © Japanese tattooz 3. Apply A Thin Layer Of Moisturizing Cream You should apply a thin layer of unscented moisturizing cream and cover with a clingfilm or gauze to recover. Repeat the process over 3-5 days. © authentik 4. Avoid The Harsh Sun Rays Healed tattoos under the exposure of the sun tend to fade away. Make sure your skin is lathered with sunscreen to avoid direct exposure. 5. Be Patient With The Healing Time The healing time varies from a few days for a small tattoo to months if it's large and complex. Take intense care of your tattoo until your artist demands it. Go for routine check-ups and steer clear from routine check-ups. © artsyparlour 6. Don't Scratch The Tat No matter how strong the urge, do not scratch the tattoo. It can do two things: first, affect the tattoo and might spoil it and second, transfers germs. Your skin is especially fragile after getting a tattoo. So you have to consciously stop your urge to scratch. 7. Go For Touch Ups Ink in tats might sometimes fade on its own. Don't shy away from going for touch-ups. Any way a tattoo studio's reputation relies on its work. So, normally you can easily get complimentary touch-ups.

  24. Attention kids! The class is in session. Manchester United's David De Gea's 'How To Be The Greatest Goalkeeper: 101' was probably the best educational experience you would have loved to sit through today. In a Premier League matchup between ManU and Tottenham Hotspurs earlier today, De Gea totalled a grand eleven saves against the Lilywhites some of which were otherworldly. Here are the match highlights: His 11 saves gave the Spaniard a new record for making the most number of saves in a game without giving up a single goal. His efforts were recognised by match-commentator, Gary Neville who said: “De Gea's been inspired. He's brilliant with his feet, closing the angle off and kicking it away… He'll have to frame those boots at the end of the game!” After Marcus Rashford gave United a 1-0 lead in the 44th minute, it was De Gea's exceptional performance especially in the second half which has now added to ManU's still interim coach Ole Gunnar's undefeated winning streak. Before Gunnar took over as the manager for the club, they were eight points behind their age-old rival Arsenal. Around three weeks later, Manchester United are now equal with the Gunners for the fifth place with 41 points apiece. After De Gea's phenomenal show, he was named the Man of the Match. ð¾Man of the Match, @ManUtd's David De Gea ð¾ â11 saves (all in the 2nd half), the most by any keeper in a PL fixture this season â13.75% of his saves in PL this season were in the 2nd half âBack-to-back PL clean sheets for the 1st time since a run of 4, Dec 2017-Jan 2018 pic.twitter.com/zJnmcHNPgF — Sky Sports Statto (@SkySportsStatto) January 13, 2019 Here are some of the most hilarious reactions De Gea's performance gathered: condoms can never be safe as DE Gea ðð — STEW™ (@BigVibes7) January 13, 2019 This Rival fan reacting to David De Gea's saves is the funniest thing you'll see today ð#mufc pic.twitter.com/9XXqeAklJC — ManUnitedZone (@ManUnitedZone_) January 13, 2019 Things de gea would save. pic.twitter.com/dkNWUzeyGU — auba-laca (@dasilva_taiwo) January 14, 2019 The only keeper better than De Gea pic.twitter.com/zn6BVHFPvL — Tendai (@NotTendai) January 14, 2019 De Gea in goal like.... 𤣠pic.twitter.com/9oMeNjKuHo — Sqrt of π (@w_mweri) January 13, 2019 sorry. #Degea #MUFC pic.twitter.com/dBhhdWfT1f — Muhammad Reyhan (@Reymuhammad23) January 14, 2019 because #davesaves @D_DeGea ð¤·ð»‍âï¸ pic.twitter.com/Pxa6EPrn8U — • (@mirzazsyahputra) January 14, 2019 @D_DeGea can save everything #GGMU #mufc #TheLegOfGod pic.twitter.com/VnlVM52y1a — Pokuase PoGbað (@RaygetsToosweet) January 14, 2019
  25. It was my first year of Bachelors in 2014 when the fitness bug first bit me. At that time I was very skinny, weighing around 49kgs at 6 feet 2 inches tall. Bullying was just as regular as college. Friends, relatives and almost everybody I knew made me the butt of all jokes. This broke my heart and I decided to steer things around and answer the bullies. Getting into the gym was another struggle. The bullies came in the form of gym bros and desi trainers. I shut myself off from the loathing and focused on lifting. For three months, I hustled my way through the weight and had no idea about nutrition. This backfired and I gave up with a beat down mentality. In 2015, I resumed lifting but this time around, I was tricked into buying mass gainer by a desi trainer. As a rookie, I took his advice and spent around Rs 10,000 and bought 20 kilos of it. Over the course of the year I had gained nearly 20 kilos of weight. Now from a skinny fat dude, I was a fat dude. The trainer now asked me use fat burners. Luckily, I didn't. In 2017, I was expecting to get my weight down but I didn't see any results. Then I came in touch with GetSetGo Fitness' coach, Vishwa. I followed his posts on Instagram and impressed by his knowledge, I enrolled under his guidance. After 2 months of training with him, I was impressed with the progress I had made. I made it a point to not quit this time around. Nearly 12 weeks into his training, I got absolutely shredded. I used nothing but food and barely any supplements apart from multivitamins. Along with this, I also learned to create my own diet plans. At present, I am bulking. Fitness is all about understanding the science of nutrition and exercises and applying the right thing at the right time. It is a lifestyle. A never ending process that demands consistency!
