  1. The wait has finally ended. Winter came at 6:30 am IST on Hotstar, with the 'Game of Thrones' Season 8 premiere airing after more than 500 days since last season concluded. Almost all living characters got screen time as multiples storylines seem to be coming together for one last time.' Please don't read any further if you haven't watched the episode yet, as this post contains heavy spoilers. As usual, there was death, there was *** and there certainly were dragons. Whitewalkers remained out of sight but did send some strong messages. The internet, no wonder, was abuzz with multiple theories, predictions and memes. But one particular Reddit user called DukeOfTheVines drew parallels between the pilot of the first season and the latest Season 8 instalment. Here it goes: “The opening shot of the King/Queen arriving with the same music” According to the redditor, the same track plays in the background of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen's arrival in Winterfell as to the one at the time of Robert Baratheon's entrance in Season 1 Episode 1. © HBO The tunes do bear resemblance, and why not? The Iranian-German composer Ramin Djawadi, who had composed 'The King's Arrival' in the show's debut season, has returned to lend tunes to the final one as well. “Arya being a kid watching the King coming vs her letting a kid get a good view of the Queen coming” Arya Stark is shown rejoicing at her brother (not by blood anymore) Jon Snow's return. The duo was thick as thieves while growing up and has reunited after their lives have come full circle. In fact the 'girl with no name' still carries the sword (Needle) that Jon gave her as a kid. © HBO “Both episodes ending with Bran and Jamie, except this time Jamie looks scared” This has to be my favourite scene from the season. A cloaked Jamie Lannister arrives on a horse to Winterfell only to find Bran Stark, now the greenseer and also the boy who Jamie pushed out from a tower, waiting for him. You can actually feel the fear in Jamie's eyes at the sight. © HBO “Both episodes have amputated limbs from the white walkers spread out in a gory way to send a message” The heir of Hosue Umber, Ned was found decapitated with limbs all around him in this episode. Remember the first ever GoT episode where the White Walkers make their first "artwork" and create a symbol in the snow using the dismembered body parts of the slaughtered wildlings? “In the pilot, Cersi and Catelyn Stark talk about their kids possibly getting married while looking at them from a distance, while in this episode Varys, Tyrion, and Davos talk about Dany and Jon getting married while looking at them from a distance” While the idea of Jon and Dany's potential romance is exciting (and really not taboo considering the incestuous history of House Lannister), the foreboding metaphor in the episode is 'nothing lasts forever.' Let's see how this one goes, especially after Sam's conversation with Jon (or Aegon?). “The kid from the beginning was climbing on trees to get a good view, similar to Bran climbing the castle to get a good view. He also looked similar to Bran in the Pilot” Will the kid also end up losing limbs? “In the Pilot, all the shots of Winterfell showed the grass but now it's all snow” Winter has come? Other interesting observations made by Redditors: /u/Itsgreenarrow: Also S1E1 Ned's farewell to Jon he says “the next time we see each other, We will talk about your mother. I promise.” Then S8E1 while Jon is staring at Ned's tomb Sam tell him about his parents /u/friggindiggin: First episode Jon is distraught over his identity crisis as a bastard. This episode Jon is distraught over his identity crisis as a king. /u/enfinnity: The brothel scene with Bron is similar to Tyrion's first scene /u/JaqueStrap69: Also Jon asking Sansa "Where's Arya?" When he arrived, just like Ned asking "Where's Arya?" /u/ChavaF1: The current ruler of Winterfell saying “Winterfell is yours” to the arriving monarch /u/sarahj2010: Also loved the line from Robert Baratheon in the pilot to Ned 'I have a son, you have a daughter, we shall join our houses'. It's gotta be Arya and Gendry. /u/SaiyanAintSo: Also Sansa being more than wary of Dany, much like Catelyn was of Cersei. She really seemed like her mother in that meet and greet. © HBO /u/Dualstack: Also Robert asking Ned to be his hand in the crypts kind of similar to Sam telling Jon he is king in the crypts /u/Skeetronic: Don't forget Cersei putting out to someone she's not 'loyal' to But isn't that the norm for Cersei?

  2. The curse is finally over, ladies and gentleman! Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have finally won their first IPL match of the twelfth season and looked really good while doing so, too. After Ravichandran Ashwin's King XI Punjab (KXIP) set a respectable total of 173 on their home ground at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali, behind an excellent knock played by Chris 'Universe Boss' Gayle (99 not out), it was time for Kohli and gang to try and chase it down. RCB openers AB de Villiers and Kohli, himself, walked down to the pitch with an aggressive mindset from the beginning and managed to keep the assertion alive for the better half of the second innings, which helped the 'Play Bold' army seal the deal in the final overs. Forming yet another successful partnership, Kohli (67 off 53) and de Villiers (59 not out) were finally able to help the team “cross that line” as the skipper mentioned in an interview after the match. In a different feature video uploaded on the Indian Premier League's official website, it was the South African who held the microphone for the Indian captain for a brief Q&A during which de Villiers asked Kohli about the reasons behind the 30-year-old is. AB's kids knock Anushka and Virat's door at the hotel every morning to wake them up and wish them good morning. "The best thing that has happened to me is me getting married", Virat got me gushing over them again. 'Stability, balance & good wives' https://t.co/T03I8FnjT6 — m (@Manasa2922x) April 14, 2019 “I think over the last year or so, the best thing to have happened to me is me getting married. It has literally changed my whole world,” he said. “I have the most beautiful wife, the most beautiful person and that has been the strongest factor in my life.” “It has changed the way I was before, I was too intense in life but she always keeps me motivated and positive,” Kohli showed appreciation towards Anushka Sharma. “I could not have been luckier to have someone who understands my mindset being in that position herself.” “'Stability, balance and a good wife' is a good life,” said the former Proteas leader in the end.
  3. The biggest movie of month/year/decade is just a few days away and all the fans are so excited and hyped up for it, and so are the actors who are a part of Avengers and MCU. Everyone's gearing up for the movie in different ways, from coming up with different theories for 'Avengers: Endgame' to basically having meltdowns about the possible deaths. And some, very important fans are making parodies and making everyone laugh, maybe because this movie will for sure kill us. Jaze Phua turned the second trailer, the one that showed Tony back on earth and joining all the surviving Avengers in that hideous new white suit. Turning it into a 'Client Expectation vs Client Budget' meme, the low-budget video is actually very hilarious. It also reminds me of a low budget version of the 'Avengers: Infinity War' trailer from last year. There are so many great funny moments, I mean, look at the recreation of the plane! Literally everything going on in this gif. How they can - and should - rebuild Asgard. What is he even doing here? The chicken and obviously another creative moment. This is the moment that killed me, the fucking Nokia phone! They're doing Nebula dirty with that blue bag. This parody was so brilliant even Mark Ruffalo had to appreciate this, and yes, I agree, so much like the original, isn't it? Struggling to see the difference between these two #AvengersEndgame trailers ð¤ Brilliant work, @jazephua! pic.twitter.com/8d22vDdf4a — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) April 8, 2019 Wholesome. THANK YOU @MarkRuffalo !!! â¤ï¸ Looking forward to see Professor Hulk! I mean Hulk in #AvengersEndgame https://t.co/HgpOXZ25Zs — Jazephua (@jazephua) April 8, 2019 That gif tho. pic.twitter.com/PEfmTYP9Oi — Zulkifli Zaid (@ZulkifliZaid) April 8, 2019 Oh wow. I apologize for trolling, Mr. Ruffalo, but I couldn't resist... pic.twitter.com/7P06ojokkz — ð±ï¸eagle: ð + ð¦ = ð¶ (@FlyLikeAB_Eagle) April 8, 2019 For sure. Guarantee you that Nokia axe is stronger than Stormbreaker pic.twitter.com/ewNGmGxsH3 — kevðâï¸ðð­ (@trillkevooo) April 8, 2019 What a meme! pic.twitter.com/obgFLgz1ic — Adasiah Marie ð±ð± (@Curious_Cat97) April 8, 2019 My exact thought process. This should be the trailer before the movie. Because we need to laugh before crying... Perfectly balanced. — Maríaâ¡ (@Caryl_83) April 8, 2019
  4. Once you've decided and made up your mind that you are going to lose some fat this summer, a particularly tricky question is bound to pop up in your mind. Should You Do Cardio Or Lift More Weights To Burn More Body Fat? You will get lots of random information for this question with some weird logic attached to them. So, to solve this problem for you I am going to give you the correct answer with a logical explanation. Which Form Will Burn More Number Calories For You? The first thing you need to understand for fat loss is that you need to create a deficit in your daily calorie intake. This deficit can be created in two ways, first is to reduce the number of calorie intake and second is to increase the number of calories burned. Right now, I am just going to talk about the second one. To burn more calories you will have to work out for at least 5-6 days in a week. Now, what should you choose as a medium of exercise, cardio or weights? Let me tell you something that will help you to make the choice easier. You will burn more calories in a single session of cardio exercise as compared to a single session of weight training. via GIPHY Now I am sure that you would be thinking that cardio is a clear choice as it will help you to burn more calories per session. Well, here is what you missed. Though cardio will burn a number of calories for you inside the gym once you step outside it is weight training that will help you more. When you do resistance training, your body will start building muscles which will have a greater impact on your metabolic rate than cardio alone. Cardio Alone Could Create Problems Trying to lose weight by performing only cardio session may prove to be really harmful to you in the long run. People who try to reduce their weight quickly using cardio exercises are the ones who later on complain about having loose skin. They lose fat but their skin becomes loose and soggy. People who weight train are able to build muscles and thus their chances of having loose skin after fat loss becomes less. Secondly, long duration cardio sessions multiple times a week are going to cost you dear on the joints. People who perform long runs of treadmill almost every day complain about having knee and other joint pains. And thirdly, cardio alone could also lead to muscles loss and chronic fatigue. © Getty Images What Should You Do? You will find people out there who will bash cardio completely. They will tell you that stepping on a treadmill is like a sin inside the gym. Here's my perspective as a coach: Cardio can be included in your workout program if you plan it smartly. Your first priority should always be to train every muscle group with weights at least once a week. Now if you still have some time left that you can spend in the gym, you may include a couple of small cardio sessions every week. These sessions can be included to build up good endurance stamina as well. The way you like to balance it is your personal choice, but yes, resistance training should always be your priority.

  5. Almost all the Apple Products come with one year warranty against manufacturing defects and hardware failures. If you send in your defected device that's under warranty, then Apple will repair it, or in same cases, even replace it with a new one. Yes, the company is known to be very generous at that. However, two Chinese students attending college in Oregon have scammed Apple by taking advantage of the company's repair policy. So, the con was very simple. Yangyang Zhou and Quan Jiang, two engineering students allegedly brought in thousand of fake iPhones, sent them to Apple filing warranty complaints and got band new 'genuine' iPhones in return. The new iPhones were then sent back to their friends and relatives in China to flip for profit. © Pexels Yup, Apple, out of all the companies, fell for this con. But hey, you can't blame the company for being nice with replacement phones, plus these counterfeit iPhones have come to closely resemble the real thing, right? According to the prosecutors, the duo submitted a total of 3,069 iPhones under warranty claims, and got back close to 1,500 new iPhones as replacement units. With a loss of $600 per iPhone, Apple calculates that it lost close to $900,000, which roughly translates to about Rs 6.25 crores. The rest of the iPhones, in case you're wondering, were rejected for tampering, and they were sent back with letters explaining why the warranty claims were declined. The federal prosecutors have charged Jiang with trafficking counterfeit goods and wire fraud. Zhou, on the other hand, was accused of submitting false information on export documentation. The agents got tipped of this fraud in April 2017 when they opened five suspicious packages enroute from Hong Kong containing phones with counterfeit marking. In their defense, both students have claimed that they didn't know the phones were counterfeits. But, c'mon, no one's going to buy that.
  6. Malai is a cooking ingredient that you all must be familiar with. It's the creamy substance that's produced after heating non-homogenized whole milk to boiling point for about one hour and then allowing it to cool. The thick yellowish layer of fat that rises to the surface, which is skimmed off and use for other dairy food is your basic malai. However, instead of eating it and using it in other dishes, you can also apply it on your face because there are tonnes of benefits of this dairy product for your skin: 1. Malai Softens The Skin © Thinkstock/Getty Images Malai's smooth texture softens dried skin by rejuvenating the skin cells. Wear malai on the face as a mask or mix the malai with milk and turmeric for a compact mask. 2. Malai Tightens Pores © Thinkstock/Getty Images Besides removing dirt from skin, malai can also tighten the pores, so if you have troubles like acne caused by loose pores, applying malai for about 15 minutes tightens the pores. 3. Malai Brightens The Skin © Thinkstock/Getty Images Malai can brighten the skin upon regular application. For a weekly mask: mix malai with a few drops of lemon juice and apply it on the skin for about 15 minutes. 4. Malai Removes Tan © Thinkstock/Getty Images To get rid of the tan, apply malai on your face and allow it to stay for a while. Rinse it with water. A thick paste of malai and besan will give you better results.
  7. Even though 'Shazam' isn't a very well known superhero from the DC universe, the newly released movie has surprised the audience in a fantabulous way. The movie follows a teenage boy Billy Batson who basks in the glory of his new found powers. Fans are finding it 'shockingly good' for a superhero film and the reviews are pouring in like rain.

  8. 1. Exfoliation Is Key © Getty Images © Getty Images There are exclusive face scrubs in the market for men in any departmental store or even online. Form a habit of using the scrub right before you shave every time. Dab some on your fingers and gently work it on your face. This not only helps with making the shave smooth and removes tan as well. 2. Witch Hazel As A Toner © Getty Images Witch hazel as a toner comforts the skin after a close shave and prevents nicks. You'll be surprised by realizing how the number of nicks you usually get begin going down once you start using this. 3. Moisturizing Is Key © Getty Images Sometimes, your daily moisturizer can be your best aftershave if you don't want to spend extra money on an aftershave. Dab it on your fingers and work it gently with your fingertips and see the difference. 4. The Cold Water Hack © Getty Images Here's a secret: post-shave, never wash your face with the same hot/lukewarm water you used while taking a shower. Instead, wash your face with cold water as it will close your pores and immediately tighten your facial skin. This means fewer wrinkles so you don't have to worry about ageing. 5. Keep The Strokes Short © Getty Images One hack that you might be aware of already is that you should always keep your strokes short. Instead of going for long-drawn-out strokes, go for short sharp strokes for a clean cut. 6. Substitute Baby Oil For Shaving Cream © Getty Images If you've run out of both shaving cream and hair conditioner, do it in the shower while using lukewarm water. That will open up your pores, soften the tough bristles of your whiskers and give a close shave. 7. For Nicks And Cuts Use Fitkaris © Getty Images Fitkari is extremely handy for nicks and cuts, better than using a tissue paper! You can even use a pinch of lip balm. Just dab some on the cut and you're good to go. 8. Wear The Shaving Cream For At Least Five Minutes © Getty Images A good hack to avoid razor burns is to let the shaving cream sit for at least five minutes. This prevents the red spots from coming back. It works better if you use a quality shaving cream as opposed to foam.
  9. People say, "your past will always come back to haunt you." But, this is 2019--a time in our lives which is heavily dominated by social media. So, in today's world, your past doesn't haunt you, but comes back to make you break the internet and trend on social media for absolutely no reason. In fact, no one can understand this better than Farhan Akhtar and Shibani Dandekar, who are currently a hot topic of discussion for a vacation they took in February.

  10. Considering the fact that it's the first thing we put on in the morning as we get ready to face the day, it's almost criminal how little thought we put into picking out our underwear. The same applies to underwear shopping as well - most of us just grab the same type we always buy, without so much as a second thought, and repeat the same process time after time. After all, it's only underwear, right? No one else is going to see it, so what difference does it make if it's the same style (and sometimes even colour!) that you've been wearing for years? Well, we've got a newsflash for you! Picking out your underwear is one of the most personal and private decisions you can make when it comes to menswear. After all, you wear it right next to your skin all day. It plays a vital role in ensuring that you feel comfortable throughout the day regardless of what you're doing. Making the wrong choice leaves you open to a whole host of annoying problems including excessive sweating, irritating itchiness, and repeated adjustments. So, unless you're okay with spending the whole day with your hands stuffed down your pants, it's high time you paid as much attention to what's going into your underwear drawer as you do to the other contents of your closet. That's not to say that underwear shopping has to be boring, pricey, or time-consuming. A little knowledge about the variety of underwear options available to you is all it takes to ensure your comfort every day. That's exactly what we hope to provide with this extensive guide to the best underwear for men, which will make underwear shopping as comfortable and satisfying an experience as the products themselves. But First, A 'Brief' Guide To Buying Your Briefs: 1) Fit: Ill-fitting underwear can play havoc with your daily routine, which is why it's extremely important to pick up the right size of underwear (especially if you're experimenting with different brands). If it's too large, you'll spend the whole day pulling them up. If it's too small, it'll cut off the blood supply to your nether regions, and you don't need us to tell you that that's not a pleasant sensation! 2) Fabric: Cotton is the tried and tested material here, but there has been a lot of innovation in this department in recent times, which means there are many more options. Various other cotton blends and fibres come with their own pros and cons. For a luxurious experience, you might indulge in some silk boxer shorts. Similarly, spandex or lycra trunks underneath your workout attire or mesh or lenzing modal underwear with your running shorts is a smart choice. 3) Colour: The world of men's fashion is ever-changing, and you're not limited to solid colours or simple stripes or checks any more. An attractive print might catch your partner's eye when things get hot and heavy in the bedroom. You can also sport printed boxers bearing the logo of your favourite superheroes or cartoon characters during a weekend movie marathon. Just be sure you don't mix up the two! 4) Brand: When it comes to underwear, most men tend to have a fierce loyalty towards a particular brand. We're not saying there's anything wrong with that, we just recommend keeping an open mind. Who knows, you might be missing out on the perfect fit or style by refusing to try out another brand's offerings! So there you have it, guys - it's time for an underwear overhaul. Broaden your horizons and restock your underwear drawer with a variety of styles, fits, colours and fabrics based on your particular needs! Looking For The Best Underwear For Men? Here's A Helpful Guide 1. Saxx Men's Fiesta Boxers © Amazon Let's start on an upbeat note with a literal party in your pants, with these Fiesta boxers from Saxx. The design is the result of a collaboration between rally driver and Saxx ambassador Ken Block, Hoonigan Racing Division and kinetic street artist Felipe Pantone. The design is the most striking feature, as Block's colourful official FIA World Rallycross Championship race livery has been digitally printed on the waistband. Not only is it eye-catching, it's supremely comfortable as well. When you consider how much time you spend concentrating on the race while seated in a cramped space, comfort is a feature you'd expect the manufacturers to address. Along with the mesh side panels, the cotton in the fabric is moisture-wicking, so you're kept cool at all times. The viscose is not only smooth and doesn't trap body heat, but also retains its colour very well thereby ensuring the longevity of the boxers. They also include an “articulated contour pouch,” an extremely handy feature which effectively holds everything in place at all times. Combined with the anti-roll waistband, we're sure you'll agree that these are some of the most eye-catching and comfortable pairs of men's underwear you can get your hands on!

  11. If you have a receding hairline that worries you at night and keeps you insecure in the day, then here's something that you could consider. Hairline tattoos, once unheard of, have recently come to the mainstream and for a good reason. © Getty Images Hairline tattoos, also known as scalp micropigmentation, is an advanced procedure for cosmetic pigmentation. Just like traditional tattooing, the needle injects pigments in the scalp in a minimally invasive procedure. © Getty Images Hair loss is one of the most popular and feared natural progression that men face. Other than treating it, or slowing it down, there are a number of expensive procedures like a hair transplant or getting an expensive product that seeks to maintain the hair you currently have. Scalp pigmentation varies from these options and provides you with a look that is unique and specially tailored to your skin tone and hair colour. © Getty Images It's not just a tattoo on your head, the process of scalp micropigmentation is very different from tattooing. It just looks like it's the same from a distance. Keeping in mind the needle and kind of ink used, a tattoo needle is large, making it imprecise for replicating the look and texture of hair follicles. Hairline tattoos use a microneedle that looks precisely like hair, and not a painted-on dot like most people assume. Tattoos, in fact, go a total of five layers deep into the skin, while micropigmentation on the other hand, only goes two layers deep. The reason for this is because the deeper pigment goes into the skin, the more likely it is to lose its round shape and spread out, resulting in an unnatural look. By keeping the pigmentation shallow, the look is controlled with the ability of the practitioner to shape it, while keeping it deep enough to maintain permanence. © Getty Images What Research Should You Be Equipped With? Like most procedures, an important detail to consider prior to treatment is the equipment used and the experience of the practitioners. A number of places do scalp micropigmentation, but the equipment used varies. So we're talking patching hair growth, in congruent hairline or a receding hairline, and the tattoos cater to all these deficits. How Does This Treatment Work? After deciding the style that you want and setting your expectations from the procedure, the treatment takes a couple of sessions to start with.
  12. After the first Hyderabad-based Indian Premier League franchise, the Deccan Chargers was terminated in 2012, SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) rose from the ashes like a phoenix with new ownership, more money and a shiny new colour-scheme for their jersey. Having made their official debut in the 2013 season of the IPL, SRH have seen their fair share of ups and downs as a whole. Starting out strong, the squad went on to become one of the most successful teams that season as it qualified for the Playoffs under the captaincy of Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara and India's Shikhar Dhawan. The roster went on to spiral down the points table in the next two seasons finding themselves to be the sixth best (or third worst) team of the league in 2014 and 2015. However, under the leadership of Aussie batsman David Warner, SRH reached their true potential in 2016. As Warner had his best season in the Indian Twenty20 league, pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar became the first of his squad to win the honorary Purple Cap for his distinguished bowling expertise that season. It was also the only season which brought the title to Hyderabad ever since the Deccan Chargers won it in 2009. In the 2018 season, SRH consisted of some world class talents in their corner. Even though David Warner was retained and appointed as the captain, he refused to accept this role after being found guilty of the infamous ball-tampering case in South Africa that summer. The Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) later disbarred Warner from participating in the league that season altogether. Good luck to my friends @SunRisers play well tonight. pic.twitter.com/GpYYLDLXeJ — David Warner (@davidwarner31) April 9, 2018 “Good luck to my friends @SunRisers play well tonight,” he tweeted ahead of his team's 2018 season-opening game against the reinstated Rajasthan Royals. The captaincy was then given to Kane Williamson, the Kiwi skipper who went on to have a brilliant batting season and ended up winning the Orange Cap whilst scoring 735 runs. The SunRisers went on to qualify for the Playoffs and into the final where they fought hard against Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK) that had been reinstated following a two-year ban due to player-involvement in the 2013 IPL betting scandal. Following some excellent innings played by skipper Williamson and Yusuf Pathan, it was Chennai's Shane Watson who scored an unbeaten 117 runs to crush their dreams of winning another title as CSK won the final with eight wickets and nine balls to spare and lifted the cup for a record third time making them the most successful IPL team alongside Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians. However, SRH's dedication and combined team-effort in the heartbreaking loss did gain high words of praise from the master blaster, Sachin Tendulkar himself, who tweeted: Hard luck @SunRisers. You really played well, displayed quality team work and thoroughly deserved to be in the finals. You can proudly hold your heads high. pic.twitter.com/IWG7h9tGTb — Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) May 27, 2018 Looking to get back to their winning ways in the twelfth season of the league, SunRisers Hyderabad spent a meagre Rs. 4.40 crores out of their budget of Rs. 9.70 crores in buying Jonny Bairstow (Rs 2.2cr), Wriddhiman Saha (Rs 1.2cr), Martin Guptill (Rs 1cr), while retaining the main athletes from previous season like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Hooda, Manish Pandey, and Sandeep Sharma. Squad: Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Martin Guptill, Ricky Bhui, David Warner, Deepak Hooda, Mohammad Nabi, Yusuf Pathan, Shakib Al Hasan, Abhishek Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Sreevats Gowsami, Jonny Bairstow, Wriddhiman Saha, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rashid Khan, Basil Thampi, Billy Stanlake, T Natarajan, Sandeep Sharma, Shahbaz Nadeem.
  13. If you're already sealing your future right now, I am sure you've decided what you really want. It's rather simple to foresee something but a tad difficult to live by the facts of it. What I mean is, if you're building your future, you obviously want financial security, a family, a good house and everything else that adult life needs for you to sustain and be happy all at once. But apart from all that, there are a few things that need vital attention more than anything else. There are certain parameters you should cross while deciding a future and it's okay to delve into them from time to time. © Twitter If having kids is on your agenda, then you already know how many you'd like to have and what kind of value system you'd instil within them. But the most crucial thing to think about is what kind of a father will you be. Being a father is the most important role you can ever don and if you're certain of being a father and raising good kids, then you have to be sure about the qualities you possess to make you someone your kids look up to. Here are 3 main qualities every man should have to be a good father: (1) He Is Protective While the sense of protection for the next of kin is innate, it's a quality not all men possess. Being protective is, of course, inherited with the association you have with people. Most men are very protective of their friends, especially women friends. Not because they like them but because they treat them as someone they need to protect. It's not just women but he takes care of everyone he is close to and that is one quality that transcends and reflects in his association with his kids. He will always set boundaries for them and protect them from anything and everything. © Pintrest (2) He Is Trustworthy That may sound ambiguous but most men, you can trust with your eyes closed, make for good fathers. That's because he will never turn his back on anyone, especially family, when in time of need. If you're the kind of guy who has stuck through the toughest times and been there for your friends and family, then be assured you'll do the same with your future family too. © Pintrest (3) He Is Patient & Encouraging If you've always been a source of encouragement for your friends and family, at any given point in time, you're definitely going to do the same for your kids too. Be it a football match or a test of some form, you'll always be there encouraging them and that's what children need the most. Apart from encouragement, children also need a lot of patience. There are very few men who're good listeners and are patient at the same time. If you spend time listening to someone's problems and give them advice patiently, you're already on your way to becoming a good dad. © Pintrest Apart from these three qualities, of course, men have to be sensitive enough to perceive a child's mind and also take steps to become an affluent teacher in their lives. So, if you're looking to become a good father, start fostering these qualities and try them out on your friends and family, because only if you have them now, you'll be able to impart them to your children in the future.
  14. Realme is a fairly new brand, but this hasn't stopped it from giving established brands a headache. It has launched a plethora of phones in a very short span of time and intends to become a top contender in the longer run. The company's target audience is the youth and has always marketed its phone's as an all-rounder. With the launch of Realme 3, the brand will be directly competing with Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7. Within a strict price bracket, they need to offer as much as they can, and it should go well with every type of user. This includes the design, performance, camera, software, and battery life. While we used to forgo minor cost-cutting measures, intense competition has left no space for mistakes. The previously launched Realme U1 also has a P70 processor, so what's new on the Realme 3? A lot. Not only does it come with a cheaper price tag, but it also incorporates a host of improvements in all departments. Ultimately, everyone has just one question - can it become the best budget offering? Design & Display: © MensXP/Shivam Vahia The first thing you'll notice about the phone is its design. The Realme 3 feels exceedingly plastic and basic. It doesn't even feel very solid to hold and this is the primary segment where costs have been cut massively. The Realme U1 too had a plastic construction, but it was well-built and you'd even assume the back is made of glass thanks to the reflection. On the flip side though, a plastic construction means the phone is lighter and very comfortable to hold. We have a Gradient Blue with the upper three-fourths being black and the bottom being starry blue. A slight curve on the back edges also makes it very ergonomic and the phone is built from a utilitarian point of view. © MensXP/Shivam Vahia The SIM card tray has a separate microSD card slot and the front screen is protected by Gorilla Glass. The bottom of the phone has a micro USB port for charging along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. Lastly, the back has a circular fingerprint scanner that is sufficiently fast and reliable. The front sports a 6.2-inch LCD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio, 1520 x 720 resolution, and Corning Glass 3 for protection. The display is adequately bright but thanks to 720P resolution, sharpness goes for a toss. The colour production feels extreme, it is too saturated sometimes and often very washed out. The viewing angles are great though and it has a high screen-to-body ratio because of the water-drop style notch. Camera: © MensXP/Shivam Vahia The Realme 3 has a 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear camera setup and it has two conclusions to it as well. For the average user, the setup performs just like we expect it to. There's nothing exceptional about it and we don't see any major drawbacks. The camera app has an updated UI thanks to ColorOS 6.0 and also brings in a few new modes like Nightscape and Chrome Boost. Nightscape helps in optimising low-light pictures by using multiple frames and AI-backed processing. The results were much better than we expected because it cuts down on noise and retains sharpness. The primary lens has an f/1.8 aperture and it's good to see even budget phone's taking advantage of it. Chroma Boost mode helps in increasing saturation as well as dynamic range and gets the job done perfectly. © MensXP/Shivam Vahia The portrait mode can detect edges very well and it's supported on both, the front and back cameras. Macros are wonderful and look perfectly saturated. With a landscape background, the blur or bokeh effect does tend to get too aggressive though. As I said, the camera has two conclusions: for the general user, it'll get the job done quickly. For the pro users, Realme has also added support for Google's camera 2 API, meaning you'll soon be able to use the Google Camera app and produce Pixel-like pictures. The front has a 13-megapixel sensor and obviously, there's support for AI-backed beautification. But, you can control every aspect of the edits like nose width, blush, and eye size. In broad daylight, both the cameras score well and there's no major point to crib about. © MensXP/Shivam Vahia © MensXP/Shivam Vahia © MensXP/Shivam Vahia © MensXP/Shivam Vahia © MensXP/Shivam Vahia © MensXP/Shivam Vahia © MensXP/Shivam Vahia Performance & Software: A major selling point of the phone is its octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. It comes in two variants: 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. Our unit comes with the latter and you can see a major point of improvement in the overall experience thanks to well-optimised software. The processor is clocked at 2.1Ghz (four cores) and is blazing fast. © MensXP/Shivam Vahia You'll never see any delay in day-to-day usage and RAM management has been relatively improved as well. I was able to use Twitter, Uber, Instagram, Spotify, and one Chrome tab at a given point of time and for a budget phone, this is significantly good. Games are even more enjoyable thanks to a 720P display (a drawback becomes a benefit) and PUBG is playable at medium graphics without any considerable frame drops or stutters. Following the recent trend, it has a dedicated "gaming mode" that enhances performance on-demand and even PUBG has been deeply optimized. You also get the option of deciding between a battery saver mode, normal mode, and aggressive mode (consumes more battery). And lastly, the P70's NPU comes in very handy. With so many AI-backed features, the NPU has become a critical requirement now and it even helps in faster face unlock. © MensXP/Shivam Vahia Coming to the software, it runs on ColorOS 6.0 and is massively improved. To start with, you finally get an app drawer and many major aspects of stock Android have been retained. The notification centre looks neat and the overall running of the UI is smooth. This enables the phone to offer the goodness of pure Android and added benefits of the skin. There is some bloatware, but it's easily removable. The phone has a 4230mAh battery and is more than enough to get you through a day's heavy usage. There is no "fast charging" as such, but the 10W charger can get you to 50 per cent within an hour. The Final Say: © MensXP/Shivam Vahia Yes, Realme has cut corners with the design and display. But these are minor drawbacks that won't actually hamper your day-to-day usage. And with budget phones, the focus is always more on utility. We expected the Realme 3 to be a superior all-rounder, and it hasn't disappointed. Performance is kick-ass, the camera has some unique offerings, software is cleaner, and battery life is perfect. When compared to the competition, it can easily take on Samsung's Galaxy M10 in terms of performance and camera. The Redmi Note 7 has a better design, subjective software, and a slightly better processor. If you are on a tight budget, the 3GB version makes sense to go with. And we're glad Realme is directly taking on Xiaomi, after all, competition is healthy for the end user and provides more options to choose from!

The woman said, " just like that every woman happened; If you hurt her , she will not be pleased to kill you, and if you are pleased and rejoice, you will be happy.
  16. Russia is planning to disconnect the entire country from the internet in order to simulate cyberwar on the country. Russians ISPs will be required to redirect web traffic from routing points within the country that will be approved by the government's telecom watchdog. © Reuters Just like every other country, Russia currently uses the global framework to connect with devices all over the world. This will be a move by the country to test cyber security and the country's capability for independent internet that does not depend on global systems. The temporary disconnection takes place in the next few weeks. © Pexels During the disconnection, the country will also rely on its own version of Domain Name System (DNS), the directory of web domains and addresses. The experiment is a part of Russia's Digital Economy National Program which aims to protect the country's digital infrastructure even if other countries cut it off. According to a report by ZDNet “The Kremlin's ultimate goal for the program is to wean the country off foreign internet providers and keep the Russian internet independent so it would be protected against potential cyber attacks,” © Pexels Since all web traffic in Russia will pass through the government's routing points, it potentially means that Moscow will be able to censor the Internet, just like in China. China's internet censorship system, also known as the Great Firewall, blocks websites and censors certain words from social media to prevent citizens from seeing content unfavourable to the regime.
  17. Shaving might seem to be an extremely simple affair, but it's not. Every man has had bad experiences with shaving, at least once in his life, and it definitely is one of those experiences that one does not want a repeat of. (c) Getty Images There is a correct way and a wrong way to shave, but the trouble is that no one quite knows which is which. You're supposed to glide your razor across your face in a specific direction, that has to do with the usual hair growth pattern on a human male face. Following that pattern will reduce cuts and burns significantly, and also make sure that the stubble that grows afterwards is flawless. (c) Getty Images All you need to do is look at the face shave map here, and follow the arrows to determine the direction in which your razor should move. Make sure to rinse your razor after every stroke. (c) MensXP Say hello to a flawless shave! You're welcome.
  18. Apple has changed the primary charging and data transfer port once, and people weren't so happy about it. While new ports bring in better features, it means we need to buy accompanying cables and this simply adds unnecessary cost to the product. The iPhone initially came with a Dock connector, consisting of a 30 pin port. Then came the Lightning Port, it was psignificantly smaller and had a satisfying click to it. According to recent reports, Apple may soon make a shift to USB-C with the new iPhones. © WikiMedia Yes, the lightning port is more than capable. But a shift to USB-C means a universal port for all gadgets in Apple's portfolio. The MacBook already has it, the new iPad has it, and now the iPhone. You can use the same cable for all the devices in the ecosystem, meaning the cost to acquire these cables 'll l will actually come down over a period of time. Even though USB-C should technically reduce the need of adapters as more and more peripherals support the port out of the box, you have to remember that old iPhone accessories are compatible only with Lightning. Apple chargers sell for roughly US$ 25 (Rs 1,500) for an official cable and replica versions are also available for far less. © Apple Last week, Anand Mahindra tweeted how he needs to buy new cables every time a new Apple product is bought. This issue may soon come to an end once all Apple products are supporting USB-C. The Android world has embraced the port long back, and even budget phones are housing one. Bloomberg also reports that the upcoming iPhone will have a triple camera setup, like some Android counterparts. The third camera will have a more powerful zoom, a higher resolution and a wider field of view than any camera on today's iPhones. © Reuters Going a step further, the 2020 iPhone is reported to have a 3D camera system that can sense distance and measure depth through lasers, improving the iPhone's handling of augmented-reality apps and features. Additionally, the Live Photos feature will mean that it can capture videos that are six seconds long, instead of just three seconds.
  19. The entire craze of rehashing old songs to suit the millennial palate is getting a little out of hands now I guess. Not all copies and remakes are great and some just end up being the opposite of what one might call an 'eargasm' and also ruins all your memories attached to the original. The latest victim that made it to the 'nay' in the remake list is the iconic song 'Poster Lagwa Do' from the upcoming romcom called 'Luka Chuppi' which stars Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon. Now before we dissect the song, let's just first listen to it. The song has been sung (or shall I say ruined) by Mika and Sunanda Sharma, two very well known names in the Punjabi industry. I absolutely love Sunanda's voice and her previous outings which includes these two fab numbers: Now I don't know why she suddenly sounds like Dhinchak Pooja in this new song and we thought all remakes were supposed to be done by Neha Kakkar, a voice we miss in this song. Netizens are also not happy with this number at all.

The original song was in 'Aflatoon' which starred Akshay Kumar and Urmila Matondkar in the lead. Kriti and Kartik are currently busy promoting their movie which actually looks really great to be honest and even took a little help from Akshay Kumar himself.

  20. Bobby Deol celebrated his 50th birthday yesterday and like a tradition now, if it's your birthday and you do not post on social media about the gratitude and the love that you are enduring then basically it is considered to be pure sacrilege.

Netizens are thanking Bobby for this gift and cannot stop claiming just how handsome his son is! No Bollywood plans have been announced for Aryaman yet but in the meanwhile, Sunny's son Karan Deol is already gearing up for his big debut.

  21. They say a true man is shaped not only by his success, or his wealth but also by the goodness that's in his heart. It's not determined by his possessions but only if he shares them with the world for the betterment of mankind. Hollywood, for one, is blessed with philanthropists who have gone the extra mile to give back to the society to be remembered for their goodness. Here are five Hollywood icons who continue their efforts of making the world a better place, one good thing at a time: George Clooney George Clooney is well known for his engagement to stop the human rights atrocities in the Darfur region of Sudan. Clooney founded the Not On Our Watch with his 'Ocean's 11' co-stars Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt, and producer Jerry Weintraub, which works to uplift the suffering populations of Sudan. His charity has donated millions of dollars to help those suffering in the region. Clooney was named the United Nations Messenger of Peace in 2008, to help raise public awareness, and support for the U.N's peacekeeping efforts around the world. Hugh Jackman The Wolverine star started The Laughing Man Foundation, which through its chain of coffee shops, supports coffee farming communities across the world by investing in programs that focus on health, growth, and success for coffee farmers and their families. Started after a promise made by the star to his friend, an Ethiopian coffee farmer, Dukale and his family, the Foundation works for supporting the production of sustainable coffee and communities associated with it. Leonardo DiCaprio Since 1998 The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation has been working to protect threatened ecosystems with a focus on Wildlands Conservation, Oceans Conservation and Climate Change. With over 50 million followers, the star's impactful work was recognized when he was designated as the United Nations Messenger of Peace for Climate Change and received the 2014 Clinton Global Citizen Award. Following the notion of great deeds, here's a striking video by Seagram's 100 Pipers Music CDs, that reminds us that the greatest legacy one can leave behind, is an act of goodness – an act that makes the world a better place. Matt Damon Actor-producer-screenwriter, Matt Damon started H2O Africa in an attempt to mitigate the water crisis in Africa and gather support for clean water programs in critical areas. His organization merged later with Water.org that focuses on providing clean water to underprivileged across the world. He is also an ambassador for ONEXONE, a non-profit foundation committed to supporting, preserving and improving the lives of children. Will Smith The MIB star with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, founded the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation to benefit inner-city community development, youth educational projects and underprivileged children and their families. He has also supported several charitable organizations that work in South Africa. Heartwarming, isn't it?
  22. We are all aware of how hard the Indian Cricket Team is gearing up right now for the upcoming World Cup 2019 that begins in May, however, there are two other people who are also working on their batting skills. We're talking about Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan. © Instagram Katrina and Salman are currently filming their upcoming project, 'Bharat' and whenever the two get time, they start playing cricket with the crew. Honestly, watching the two playing on the film's sets can make anyone think that they are working on a sports biopic, but that's just their way of chilling after pack up. Earlier, Salman had posted the video of him playing cricket, with the caption "Bharat khelega..." View this post on Instagram Bharat Khelega... #onlocationstories @bharat_thefilm A post shared by Salman Khan (@beingsalmankhan) on Jan 13, 2019 at 7:50am PST Today, Katrina posted a video of her playing cricket and let's admit it, she's pretty good at the sport. In fact, Katrina is so confident of her batting skills that she even asked her 'Zero' co-star Anushka Sharma to put in a small word for her to the team's captain, Virat Kohli. She wrote, "Pack up ke baad at Bharat sets, as the world cup nears. Anushka Sharma, perhaps you could put in a small word for me with the captain of the team. Some room for improvement in my swing, but overall not a bad all-rounder."

No, you won't find him in the video because he's not physically present in the video. It's his song 'Apna Time Aayega' from 'Gully Boy' that is playing in the video. While Anushka Sharma hasn't replied to the video yet, looks like Preity Zinta already wants to take Katrina in her IPL team. She wrote, "Wow, we should hire you" and Katrina replied saying, "Do it, come on let me play." © Instagram 'Bharat' is said to be based on a Korean movie called 'An Ode To My Father' and is expected to release in June 2019.
  23. It's honestly a struggle for women to find a man who will fit into the bracket of being the perfect husband. Obviously, it works both ways but since we love writing for men, let us tell you that women, inevitably, when they start dating you, skim through your qualities so that you fit the relationship quotient. Apart from being charismatic, confident and good in bed, there are numerous other qualities you should possess to make a good husband to a woman who deserves your effort. (c)Getty Images Mostly, we all are under the misconception that women and men alike date partners that are different from the partners they chose when they want to get married. While it may be true in some cases, most cases, we believe, you'd want that constancy in your life of having to wake to the same person every day. So, if you're a man looking to finally plunge into the marriageable route, you need to be ready for that and have certain qualities that make women want to get married too, to gravitate towards you. Here are 5 essential qualities you should possess in order to make a good husband: (1) Be There For Her Even When It's Inconvenient For You Yes, I know you'd ask that why do you have to be there all the time and that you too have a life that's equally important. Some may even counter saying she likes her independence so why do you need to bend over backwards to do things for her. But you see, partnerships require compromise and sacrifice and you're not choosing to date her but spend your life with her. There are times when she may fall weak. Like when she's having a baby with you or when she's going through menopause. You can't leave her in these tough times and venture off thinking you have a life of your own. You have bigger responsibilities towards your partner now and it's good to start displaying them when you're in a relationship with her, in order for her to know, you'll be around through thick and thin. (c)Getty Images (2) You Have To Accept Her Flaws Maybe when you're dating someone you can count their flaws and tell them to make correctives. But if you're seriously considering spending your life with someone and hoping they see you the same way, then you need to accept their flaws and accept who and what they are. If you want to address them so the person knows a few things are unruly, then you should do that. But make sure you do it without making her feel guilty that she has flaws in the first place. She shouldn't be hiding her true self from you because she thinks you may not accept her. Make your acceptance of her as an important person in your life, from the start. (c)Getty Images (3) A Keen Sense of Responsibility Is Important You can be enamoured by her, profess all your love towards her but if you're not responsible, there is no way she's ever going to consider marrying you. She sees responsibility as an inevitable bargain between two people in a relationship. It gives her direction towards the future. If you show her you're a responsible human being, she will want to pursue the idea of you, in her future. For her, responsibility from you goes synonymously with nurturing and taking care of the children you may want to have, of the future you two hold and other important aspects in a marriage. So, it's time you pull up your socks and gather a sense of being responsible, not just for you, but for her too. (c)Getty Images (4) You Need To Be Open In Your Communication Communication can get tough sometimes when you need to open up about yourself, but in a relationship which is serious, that's something which should be involuntary. If you don't open up and communicate your hopes, fears and dreams then the relationship is quite superficial. Sometimes the best people move away because there isn't any communication between them. If you and she have trouble opening up about things and healthily communicating, maybe find ways to do so more effectively. Communication is the key to a good and harmonious relationship. (c)Getty Images (5) Infidelity Doesn't Make A Good Husband Men always tend to lean toward infidelity. There isn't an established reason for it yet, but somewhere down the line, cheating becomes inevitable. It's not blaming or something to pinpoint. It's a fact and if you think one woman is never enough for you, you probably need to either communicate that with your partner or move away. You can even see if you want to be in an open relationship/marriage with her, in case you do want her in your life but can't trust yourself enough. That way, you're honest to her about things. But make sure the decision to do that is mutual. Most marriages break because of infidelity and if you're someone who cheats, it's good to spell it out way before. (c)Getty Images Making these characteristic changes is not easy, I agree, but sometimes things need to be mended to make space for newer, better things. If you feel you're someone who can change to adapt and bring in a truer sense of companionship to your life, then try and make these changes and one day you will make a great husband to someone!
  24. In the ever-changing age of the digital world, social media, from being a simple platform that initially came to fore with the promise of helping people to keep in touch and keep up with one another, has, now, gone on to become 'the thing' for people. No relationship is considered real unless it's posted on the likes of Facebook and Instagram. Happiness is now measured by the number of vacation photos you share on your social media profile. There is so much and, still, much more. Then, there are those social media trends that get the users spell-bound, making it almost imperative for others to participate while inflicting FOMO (another irritating new-age lingo) if they don't. Staying true to its nature, social media has a new trend for everyone to follow - '10 Year Challenge'. A harmless fad, right? Or, is it (that's questionable). (Plus,minus)- 10 Year Challenge ðð @rogerfederer #10yearchallenge pic.twitter.com/2lAvyKMNj6 — Belinda Bencic (@BelindaBencic) January 17, 2019 The rules are pretty simple: you simply upload two photographs of yourself - usually side by side - which were taken at least ten years apart. What's the overall message here, you'd ask? It's again simple: self-love and showing the world how you've 'glowed up' (in other words, showing how you haven't aged a day). The '10 Year Challenge' is already a rage on the social media platforms. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; you name it. The collage of photos would have thronged your feed on social media. From cricketers to footballers and politicians to actors, everyone has been happily riding the bandwagon. And, why not, in the age where information is second-handed (read digital) and real life is secondary, social media trends is the oxygen you cannot do without. But, amid all the crazy collages of people we've seen, there came one from Rohit Sharma that stands apart from the rest. The only #10YearChallenge we should be worried about pic.twitter.com/Tph0EZUbsR — Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) January 17, 2019 Using the '10 Year Challenge' fad as an opportunity, the Indian opener highlighted one of the long-standing problems that might soon spell doom for the mankind. Taking to Twitter, the Mumbai batsman shared a collage of photos of the marine life where the one from 2009 was colourful and lively, while the one from 2019 was dull and dusty. He captioned the post with a valid point: "The only #10YearChallenge we should be worried about". In the year, where we all were going gaga about the stock image of an egg beating Kylie Jenner's record of the most-liked photo on Instagram, before Netflix's 'Bird Box' had people running around blindfolded, Rohit has set a much-needed precedent for celebrities and fans alike, showing that such social media trends can actually be used responsibly, and for something good. And, while there are already rife allegations that the collages of the photos that we all have been happily sharing on the social media could very well be used as data to test the facial recognition algorithms, people must proceed with due diligence. After all, humans are the connective link between physical and digital worlds. It's human interactions that make the 'Internet of Things' interesting. And, sadly, our data is the fuel that makes businesses smarter and more profitable.
