  1. Let's imagine two scenarios: one where you are being a beast in the gym, sweating it out in all your glory, and second where you are running outdoors with the wind blowing in your hair. The scenarios are so different but yet, 60% of Indians wear the same shoes to the gym. Are you one of them? If you're nodding in unison, we have news for you. You need different shoes for running and the gym. We often forget the importance of the right fitness gear while working out, which more often than always, results in acute athletic injuries that are hard to fix. While many people mainly focus on cardio or running which requires the same type of shoes, there are more and more people who are taking up high-intensity workouts which is why Reebok took-up the challenge of creating the perfect shoes for HIIT training. HIIT or High-Intensity Interval Training is a combination of brief, very-high intensity bursts of cardio exercise followed by equal or longer periods of rest. Think 30 seconds to a minute of sprinting, followed by a minute or two of walking or slow jogging. Repeat this cycle for just 10 minutes, and you'll complete a HIIT workout. These workouts require shoes that fulfil specific needs. Here's what the experts have to say about this. "The last thing I want to worry about during a workout are my shoes! I want them to be comfortable and fit right and almost want to forget about them.” - Namrita Purohit, Celebrity trainer "Wearing the wrong shoes for your workout not just means a less effective workout, it can also lead to a bad injury. The Reebok HIIT TR is built with grip, stability, and durability to handle anything that you throw it's way, whether squatting, jumping, sprinting or lifting, you don't need to hold anything back. The Reebok HIIT TR has evolved beyond the standard running or training shoe using technology designed specifically for all types of workouts."- Shivoham, celebrity trainer The Reebok HIIT shoes have rubber on the outsole to maintain the grip athletes need, along with wrapping the rubber outsole up over the toe to protect against burpees and planks, providing durability and also maintain stability using the built-in a midfoot support cage to lock in the foot. We wanted to ask you, the readers what your take is on different shoes for running and gym. If you too use one pair of running shoes for the gym, you need to head to Reebok to buy your pair of HIIT shoes today. View the full article
  2. We all know the ABC that rules the zeitgeist of Indiaâs pop-culture wherein A stands for Astrology, B for Bollywood and C for cricket. Just take a look at any entertainment daily and their page 3 and youâll get an idea of how ardently we look at celebrities from the film fraternity and their personal lives. © Instagram/virat.kohli Even with cricketers, most of us have a keen interest in their shenanigans (or lack thereof) off the field, over their stellar performances on it. Be it their lavish lifestyle, who theyâre dating and what their opinion is on serious political matters, we as a society look up to or towards them in one way or the other. © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Speaking about the lavish lifestyles that some of our cricketers lead, we couldnât help but notice how like most men, they too love to splurge their hard-earned cash on some common toys that men and boys envy - cars, watches and bikes, primarily. © MensXP Here are some of the most ridiculously expensive watches that we have seen some of our cricketers wear, when they were out and about in the public. 1. Krunal Pandya © Instagram/krunalpandya_official As much as a fashion icon his younger brother Hardik is, Krunal does not actually lag behind when it comes to style. Agreed that it isnât as egregiously good as Hardikâs, Krunal still has managed to turn our heads on more than one occasion. He has often been spotted donning a rather dope Rolex, particularly the Cosmograph Daytona Rainbow Yellow Gold Oyster. The price? Well, it reportedly retails for Rs. 89.90 lakh. 2. MS Dhoni © Twitter/panerai Being the brand ambassador of a major luxury watchmaker, is it a surprise that âCaptain Coolâ is on the list? A de facto horologist, even before he broke on to the cricketing scene, he has often been spotted wearing a rather suave Panerai Radiomir California worth Rs. 9.25 lakh. And just like the man himself, we have to say, the watch itself is rather cool. 3. Umesh Yadav © Instagram/umeshyaadav The right-arm fast bowler may not be a fashion icon as such, but he clearly knows his watches. Umesh Yadav is a fan of chunky big machined watches and is also known for his love of big chunky chronographs. Even while playing on the field, he has often been spotted wearing the Graham Silverstone Stowe 500 Blue Flyback, which retails for just over Rs. 11.00 lakh. 4. KL Rahul © Instagram/rahulkl Another fashion icon that is currently a part of the Indian cricketing pantheon, KL Rahul actually has a zany sense of style. Just take a look at our cover story with him, and youâll get an idea of what weâre on about. From some really dapper sneakers to a zany, Pokemon inspired Fendi fanny pack, he has done it all. From the rather impressive collection of watches that he has, we particularly are in awe of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 37 that we have seen him wear time and again. The retail price for the watch? Just under Rs. 13.25 lakh. 5. Jasprit Bumrah © Instagram/jaspritb1 One of those cricketers who arenât exactly known for his sartorial choices, Jasprit Bumrah actually has a sick collection of watches, one that would definitely pique the interest of your average horologist and watch enthusiasts. Here, he is seen wearing an all-time classic, and a rather coveted piece from Rolex, the Daytona Chrono, worth over Rs. 25.70 lakh. 6. Harbhajan Singh © Instagram/harbhajan3 Ever since his retirement from all forms of cricket, it seems Harbhajan is becoming a full-blown, bona fide fashion icon, all thanks to the countless gigs he has signed up for as a commentator. Just like the suave and understated manner in which he dresses himself, his watches too have a suave appeal. Here, he is wearing a rather sick Hublot, particularly, the Classic Fusion Orlinski Green which retails for Rs. 16.00 lakh. 7. Hardik Pandya © Instagram/hardikpandya93 Well, you saw this coming. There was no way that we would leave Hardik out of this list. Say what you will about Hardik, he surely knows how to pick his timepieces and boy, does he have an impressive collection. Of course, he has all the usual suspects that a horologist with a bucket ton of money would have - Rolexes, Hublots, Panerais, Rados, Omegas et al. But what has caught everyoneâs fancy is the rather simplistic, yet zany Patek Phillipe Nautilus 5980/1R that he wore when he was admitted in a hospital. Now, some people estimate that the watch is worth Rs. 80.00 lakh, but there have been instances, where they have actually been sold for as high as Rs. 1.25 crore. Now thatâs something, right?

  3. Kangana Ranaut on marriage: 'I don't have the energy to invest in another family'Kangana Ranaut after earlier hinting that she wishes to get hitched, has now expressed that marriage is not in the pipeline for her at this point. Upon being asked about her marriage plans, during the promotions of her film the 33-year-old actor told Mumbai Mirror how she feels about it at this stage of her life. “I’m at a phase when I’m just beginning to enjoy my life. If someone can add to it, I’m fine, but if, as a woman, I am expected to ensure he’s emotionally stable, enhance his spiritual growth, be lucky and bring him financial windfalls and take on the responsibility of a home, children and family, then, I’m not up for that,” she said. “At the moment, I have no time for people who come with any kind of baggage,” she added. Kangana also shared that a thriving career and her family are all that she has ever set her heart on. She also said that she has recently smoothed out her relationship with her family and is willing to invest her time in only making the ties stronger. She added: “The world is respectful; there’s a lot to do and give. And for the first time, I can think about myself. Let me be a little self-centered and enjoy what I have earned. I don’t have the time and energy to invest in another family. That can come later.” She further added that her career has played a massive role in pacifying the sour connection she had with her family as she left her house to be an actor when she was only 15. “Today, fortunately for me, I’ve got my family back. But I know that somewhere success had a huge role to play in the reconciliation. Had I not made it in films, I might have lost out on both my family and my dream, and that would have been devastating.” The Queen actor is fully engrossed in her promotions for her upcoming film Panga which is all set to hit the silver screens on January 24, 2020.
  4. Let's be honest - for many of us into fast rides and motorsports, part of the thrill comes from witnessing something truly dangerous and yet being in control. Today's F1 cars, for example, regularly scream down the straights at speeds inching ever-closer to a staggering 400kmph - with little more than a helmet to keep a driver safe in the event of a crash. Along with tales of racing heritage on these tracks, comes a dark history of riders and drivers who strayed too far off the edge - and paid for it with their lives. These are the world's most dangerous motorsports tracks - ranked for their sheer lethality. 6. Daytona International Speedway © Reuters; Spectators catch a front-row view of a high-speed, 9-man crash that took place at Daytona in early 2019. 40 deaths mark the history pages of Daytona International Speedway - one of North America's greatest racetracks, particularly for NASCAR racing. Across the last 60 years, everything from botched speed records to tyre failures have resulted in violent crashes - the most famous of which involved 7-time NASCAR champ Dale Earnhardt Sr. crashing head-on into the racetrack walls. It also has the unusual distinction of being the only racetrack to have a death occur by boat, as the powerboat race course is within the Speedway boundaries. 5. Indianapolis Motor Speedway © Reuters; Chris Windon and David Malukas crash into the Speedway walls during an Indy Freedom 100 race. Commonly known as 'The Brickyard', this racetrack has the names of 73 unfortunate individuals (including 42 drivers) who were killed as a result of the races - going as far back as the very first race that inaugurated the Speedway back in 1909, when a driver named Wilfred Bourque and his mechanic were killed. It also happens to be the site of one of racing's most unusual and bizarre spectator fatalities - death by tyre. During a 1984 Indy 500 race, a tyre wobbled loose from Tony Bettenhausen's No. 56 machine and smacked into Roberto Gurrero's No. 4 car - flying skywards at up to 350 kmph, and directly into the face of 41-year old fan, Lyle Kurtenbach, who was soon pronounced dead at a local hospital. 4. Le Mans Circuit De La Sarthe © Reuters; Safety crew work to rescue British racer Allan McNish after a devastating crash with his Audi R18 TDI. Possibly one of the most prestigious, gruelling and infamous racetracks in the world - the French Circuit de la Sarthe is home to the 24 Hours of Le Mans race - a continuous endurance racing event that forms the pinnacle of the sport for many fans. It's also incredibly dangerous - having claimed the lives of 27 racers over the years. While some of these boiled down to the nature of the track and the lack of necessary safety rules, many can be attributed to incorrectly engineered cars - a phenomenon for which Mercedes-Benz became notorious for in the 90s with their 'backflipping' CLK GTR. Although current regulations have worked to improve safety for fans, the track is also home to the most devastating spectator disaster in the history of motorsports - the 1955 tragedy that claimed the lives of 83 spectators and Mercedes driver Pierre Boullin. 3. Autodromo Nazionale di Monza © Reuters; Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg finds himself in the middle of a massive pileup - right on the first corner. Monza, one of the three oldest permanent race tracks in the world, opened in 1922 and is also one of the most dangerous. The circuit, which has been on the calendar of the Formula One Championship since its inaugural season in 1950, took lives of many F1 greats among others. The two-time F1 champion Alberto Ascari was killed at Monza in 1955, Wolfgang von Trips and 14 spectators died in 1961, Jochen Rindt was killed in 1970, Ronnie Peterson died in a hospital after he crashed at Monza. In total, the lost lives of 52 drivers and 35 spectators are written on the walls of Monza, which is the highest of all current F1 tracks - a number that's risen so high due to the parameters of the track falling short of the insane speeds today's racing teams can achieve. 2. Nürburgring Nordschleife © Reuters; Ralf Schumacher crashes into his elder brother, Michael Schumacher on the course back in 2004. Nicknamed 'The Green Hell', this infamous track is known as the ultimate test of skill, dexterity and sheer will - the lengthy 20.8km circuit has over 150 turns, complete with several steep inclines and bumps that result in airborne vehicles and perhaps most deadly of all for racers, unpredictable weather conditions such as rain and fog. While several of those 150 turns have tamed the ego of hundreds of drivers (and the lives of over 80), perhaps the most famous crash to have occurred at the Nordschleife happened during the 1976 German Grand Prix. After failing to convince authorities and other drivers to boycott the extremely dangerous race, a reluctant Niki Lauda strapped in - only to have this horrific crash occur during the second lap. Lauda was trapped in the seat as a fire broke out and his helmet had slipped off - leading him to suffer serious burns on his face and inhale toxic gases from the inferno. Luckily, in one of F1's most heroic moments, he was saved by Italian racer Arturo Merzario, who jumped into the fire to save him. 1. Isle of Man Mountain Course © Reuters; Chris Palmer and John McGuiness practice around a bend before the 2009 Trophy race. There's absolutely no questioning it - this is the most hardcore, death trap of a race in the history of motorsports. Extremely tight and narrow lanes, several jumps, sheer cliffs and the pressure of hundreds of death-defying spectators right along the route… did I mention that the motorcycles here go upwards of 200kmph on average? F1 really is a cakewalk compared to this. Ever since the track opened over a hundred years ago, it has claimed the lives of over 250 riders and even more fans - several have crashed into buildings, trees, zoomed off cliffs and in the worst circumstances, crashed head-on into spectators. The Cup record holder is the late Joey Dunlop, whose grit and solid-titanium balls led him to 26 wins at the course. He died - you guessed it - riding a motorcycle. View the full article
  5. Siddharth Malhotra is one of the few celebrities who never shy away from dipping their toes in exciting style trends. After delivering films like Marjaavan and Jabariya Jodi last year, Siddharth is set to experiment with a fresh role in the upcoming film Shershaah. On his birthday, he even shared a sneak peek of his look for the film, take a look here: An absolute honor to be able to paint the big screen with the shades of bravery & sacrifice. Paying an ode to the journey of Captain Vikram Batra (PVC) and bringing the UNTOLD TRUE STORY with #Shershaah. Releasing 3rd July, 2020.@Advani_Kiara @vishnu_dir @karanjohar pic.twitter.com/RJ4qj0sNPQ â Sidharth Malhotra (@SidMalhotra) January 16, 2020Shershaah is set to release on 3 July 2020. But, besides the announcement, Siddharth also hosted a quiet party at his place to celebrate his birthday. Now, this brings us to his birthday outfit. Siddharth may have accidentally kick-started a fashion trend with this killer outfit. Take a look here: © viralbhayani He wore a checkered sweater in red and black colourways. Along with this, he wore crumpled pants and black sneakers to complete the look. It looks like the crumpled pants were definitely an intentional style move on Siddharth's part. © viralbhayani There is no way that you can overlook this level of creasing on a pair of pants like these and especially when the pants in question are a part of your birthday outfit. © viralbhayani This is probably why we think that maybe he chose to wear these pants. This is not the first time a celebrity has walked out in crumpled clothing. Ayushmann Khurrana has also worn crumpled pants for his film's promotions. Maybe, ironing pants is overrated now or maybe his steam iron wasn't working or maybe this is how they were designed. What do you guys think? View the full article
  6. Whether you grow a beard or not, there are times when you need to get your beard in shape. There are a few unfortunate souls among us, who, even if they tried to, cannot grow a proper beard and need to keep things clean. Others among us, have very strict workplace environments and dress codes that need to be adhered to. © iStock And then there are a few who simply don't like the idea of growing a beard and would much rather have smooth and non-prickly skin. No matter where we stand on this spectrum, most men at some point in their lives come across a situation where they need to shave their beards, be it in order to give it a shape, or just to clean it off. © iStock There's no denying this, as much as some guys hate shaving, there's no one on earth who enjoys a shaving experience that is all jagged, rough, and leaves your neck and cheeks all red and bloodied, and no matter what we do, we simply can't make our shaving experiences smooth enough. Or so you might think. Here are a few neat cheats and tricks that are actually super quick and require zero additional efforts that ensure a shaving experience that's smoother than cutting butter with a hot knife: © iStock 1. Warm Water © iStock Warm water helps your skin loosen up its pores and makes your shaving experience much smoother. It also helps by softening up the hair and the uppermost layer of the skin, which should make for a relatively smooth shaving experience. 2. Short Strokes © iStock If you keep your strokes long, your blades tend to collect more gunk, scum, hair and debris. Keep your strokes short and wash your blade in warm water in between strokes. That way, you will have a sharper and more effective blade do your bidding. 3. Fresh Blades © iStock Speaking of blades, always try to go for a fresh blade. Now, we know using a fresh cartridge every time you shave is not feasible, therefore, we suggest you store your razors, especially the open ones away from the bathroom, and in a dry place. 4. Exfoliate Before © iStock Most of the irritation that you face when you shave comes from the dirt and gunk that gets into the skin, as your blade removes the uppermost layer of the skin, along with the hair. It's always a good idea to take a warm shower before you shave, or at least, wash your face thoroughly, exfoliating vigorously, before shaving. 5. Use A Hair Conditioner © iStock This is a trick for those who tend to go a long time between shaves and normally are trying to shave their beards off. Massage your beard with a wet conditioner, and wash it off, just as you would do with your hair after shampooing. Once you're done, proceed with your regular shaving routine as you would. The conditioner softens up your skin and your beard, making things a lot easier. Trust us, these tricks, and a dope shaving kit, and you're all set. __ECOMPRODUCT__274__ View the full article
  7. Samsung has already confirmed that the company will be hosting its “Unpacked” launch event on February 11, 2020. It is usually the time when Samsung announces new Galaxy S phones and this year the Galaxy S20 is expected to launch. A previous leak suggested that the Galaxy S11 will probably be called Galaxy S20 and we can expect three models this year from the South Korean giant. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We kind of have an idea that the Galaxy S20 will feature some of the latest specifications thanks to a recent leak put together by Phone Arena which details every single piece of information about the three upcoming smartphones. In the below image, the three phones that will be launching are the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra. © Phone Arena The Galaxy S20 Ultra will be the first Samsung phone to sport a periscope zoom camera which will be an exclusive feature for the handset. The Galaxy S20 is also expected to launch on March 6, if this leak by Phone Arena is to be believed. At the moment, Phone Arena's information cannot be verified, which is why we advise you to take this leak with a pinch of salt. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Pricing for the three smartphones also leaked, revealing a $799 price tag for the S20, $999 for S20+ and $1,099 for the S20 Ultra. The Indian prices for the smartphones are expected to be different as Samsung tends to price it a bit lower in India, thanks to the presence of their manufacturing units in the country. We will learn more about the three units closer to the reveal event where the prices and the launch date will be officially announced. Source: Phone Arena View the full article
  8. A new Assassin's Creed is probably on its way and the existence of the game was leaked via website listings. Ubisoft has not officially announced the game but leaks are pointing towards one of the biggest games in the series. The game listed on the websites was called Assassin's Creed Ragnarok and is expected to release later this year. © Ubisoft A leak that was posted on 4Chan and later on Reddit revealed detailed information that sounds believable but we still suggest you take it with a pinch of salt. According to the leaker, the game will launch in September 2020 and will be a cross-generational game. It will support four-player co-operative mode or with a single character that can be either male or female. It is said to have role-playing mechanics similar to Assassin's Creed Odyssey and will also introduce a new weapon durability feature. The game will also feature a hidden blade, an iconic feature that was not included in the previous iteration. © Reddit Leaks also suggest that the game will be set in the 9th century and will deal with Norse mythology. The map is also expected to be larger than ever and will expand to cities like Paris, London and Kiev. There will also be more emphasis on mythical beasts that will be protecting temples and other key locations. Previous Assassin's Creed games have leaked in the past and most of the rumours have turned out to be true. It would be interesting to see how Ubisoft will adopt Norse mythology into the Assassin's Creed world. We could expect the game to be announced sometime later this year. We may hear more about the game at E3, this June. View the full article
  9. Birds of Prey is less than a month away and even before its release, people are turning into proper DC stans, thanks to the latest trailer. Well, Margot Robbie aka Harley Quinn does have that power, for sure. The new trailer dropped today and it's as colourful and crazy as you would expect it to be. It starts off with our poor lil Harley getting over her breakup with Joker. You should do whatever you want to cope, cry, eat cheese while crying, blow up your ex-boyfriend, it's called self-care. But, after that, she realizes that there are plenty of supervillains who want her dead, of course, and that includes Ewan McGregor's Roman Sionis, a mafia don known as Black Mask. What else is left other than to make a (suicide) squad? She teams up with four other women who are on Black Mask's hit list to take him down: Gotham City cop Renee Montoya, pickpocketing runaway Cassandra Cain, the vigilante the Huntress, and supernaturally screaming lounge singer Black Canary. The best part is obviously at the end when it's revealed that she has a pet hyena named Bruce. I mean, of course Harley Quinn will have a hyena named Bruce. Here's the trailer: The trailer has obviously got everyone very excited for the movie and going by the response, it looks like there'll be a lot of new DC fans after this. It looks great! This sequence is already a serve #BirdsOfPrey pic.twitter.com/52nEAIrq3n — Harley Quinn Updates (@HarleyMovieNews) January 10, 2020 Good enough.

  10. Varun Dhawan's film, Street Dancer is releasing this month. No surprise then he's bringing his A-game to promote the film. It all started a month back, from teaching Charlotte Flair never-seen-before steps from one of the songs of Street Dancer to pulling off stunts in an auto with fellow actor Shraddha Kapoor, and even recently, working up his disco-aesthetic to an almost unrecognisable look. © Viral Bhayani But if there's something that clearly stands out every time Varun puts his best foot forward, it's exactly that. (his rad kicks) Case in point, the time when he was with Prabhu Deva, he wore the Reebok by Pyer Moss Experiment 4 Fury Trail silhouette with a quirky outfit, also by Reebok by Pyer Moss' collection. © Viral Bhayani The sneaker is nothing like we've ever seen before. With the sneaker being split into three different layers, the silhouette represents the climb to success in the face of adversity, the first section utilizes rubberized leather and hard protective TPU to shield the rest of the shoe. The third and final section features deconstructed and soft materials for the inner tongue, the outer tongue, and the lining. Take a look: © Reebok © Reebok This is a rather fitting outfit for Street Dancer promotions considering it highlights the street dance aesthetic as well. Street Dancer is set to release on 24 January 2020, so we're hoping to find some of Varun's best looks in the film. View the full article
  11. Rani Mukerji thanked her fans for supporting her film, 'Mardaani 2'Rani Mukerji’s new film, Mardaani 2 has received massive success at the box office and the veteran actor cannot be happier over the heartwarming response from fans. While many Bollywood celebrities keep in touch with their fans through different social media handles, the Hichki actor does not use the channel to garner fan following. She said, “More than pressure, it’s a relief because as actors, we strive for people’s reaction, their adulation, love and faith. In my case, my fans have kept me relevant even though I’m not on social media, which is essential these days. So, if I still have a fan following that means I’ve probably earned it through my work.” Showing gratitude towards her fans, the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai star expressed: “I feel blessed and their excitement towards my work has always been a positive critic in my life. I’m always charged to do better with each film of mine as don’t want to disappoint them,” Hindustan times reported. Moreover, she also talked about her the social stigma of gender inequality that her film revolves around, she said: “As actors, we need the material to be bang on for us to bring it to life on screen and improvise on it to create a character that leaves a lasting impression.” Rani emphasized on staying true to herself and saying what’s right despite its consequences. “As long as I’m making sense to some people it’s good enough. You don’t have to become miss congeniality and make everyone happy. You’ve to understand that sometimes there is a certain belief that I live by,” she said. Reflecting about her dealing with criticism or giving suggestions to others, she said: “I’m open to criticism and advice that I should accept, follow. I believe in my position when people ask me questions, I’ve to answer them. They ask for advice too… And I give my point of view more than often.” “Given my profession, fortunately or unfortunately, I’m made to give opinion on different topics. There are certain times and things I feel strongly about and react. But I understand when someone doesn’t like or accept it, they aren’t entitled to. That’s his or her right. Similarly, if somebody gives me an opinion then I too have the right to be okay or not,” she added.
  12. There have been plenty of rumours about a new affordable iPhone that many have touted as the new iPhone SE 2. A fresh leak shows off renders of the new phone that gives us a closer look at the smartphone in question. The new leak from renowned leaker @Onleaks and iGeeksBlog shows the full view of the device and from other points of views. These images are based on renders from a leak which means the design can change once it eventually launches. We advise you to take this rumour with a pinch of salt. © Twitter/Onleaks The image reveals a slimmer phone that has rounded edges, big bezels, a lightning port and no 3.5mm headphone jack. The iPhone in the image looks awfully similar to the iPhone 8 and is probably why the smartphone will be a bit more affordable as it is using a design previously used by Apple. And finally comes your very first look at #Apple's highly anticipated #iPhoneSE2 aka #iPhone9! 360° video + stunning official looking 5K renders + dimensions, on behalf of my Friends over @igeeksblog -> https://t.co/vXBBRhDlgA pic.twitter.com/YQHMEZUz9e — Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) January 7, 2020 Since it looks so similar to the iPhone 8, there is a good chance that this upcoming phone may just be called the iPhone 9. However, there will be upgrades under the hood that may include a more powerful chipset, better camera and a bigger battery. Since it will be a new smartphone by Apple, it will also probably run iOS 13 out of the box. These renders also may not look exactly like the final product as previous leaks have indicated different design aspects before. However, it remains to be seen whether the new iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9 will launch with these designs. Currently, there is no news when the smartphone will launch and how much it will cost.

  13. After the brutal and gruesome attack on Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) students on the January 5, 2020, the University has been absolutely lull dealing with a plethora of damage, to both human life and university property. On 5th, right after the attacks took place, a swarm of people gathered outside the North Gate of the University to protest against these attacks, in absolute solidarity. Since then various protests rallies and Dharnas have been organised by the university students to stand in solidarity with those who've been injured in the brutal attacks that took place. © Twitter While the government is either quiet or is playing its usual blame game, a lot of civilians are riled up and need pertinent answers to these attacks. Amongst the celebrities, Swara Bhaskar, through an engaging video, urged people to protest and condemn these attacks, while they were going on. After Swara, we now see Deepika Padukone stand in absolute solidarity with the students of JNU and our hearts are truly melting, seeing a prominent celebrity finally take a stand against the attacks on university students. Deepika is currently in Delhi to promote her movie Chhapaak, directed by Meghna Gulzar, which releases this Friday and while the actress was present at the university, she didn't address the crowd, and her decision prompted Aishe Ghosh, the student body president to comment "when you are in position, you should speak". © Twitter Deepika joined the ongoing protest rally against the attacks that took place on students and teachers alike, in JNU. Although she hasn't Tweeted or shared her presence at JNU yet, there have been photographs and videos that have been doing the rounds and garnering momentum. While Deepika was at JNU, the news of her presence spread like wildfire all over Twitter and people were either criticising her for coming there to promote her movie or praising her for showing solidarity. The hashtag #BoycottChhapaak also gained traction. Here are some mixed reviews about her visit to JNU: Glad @deepikapadukone turns up at #JNU ...First from the big bollywood stars league to come out so openly in support of the students...So much respect for her!!! Deepika u r a true star!!!

But the important part is that she showed up, which means she opposes the heinous actions carried out by the masked mob, regardless of her movie coming out this Friday and that's all we need to know or care about. We just hope more celebrities come forth and condemn these brutal attacks on students because their opinion really matters to the younger population today. © Twitter On Sunday, a mob of masked young men and women entered the University, carrying iron rods, sticks and hammers and targeted students from three hostels, within the campus, including a women's hostel. They beat up the students and also destroyed public and personal property. Even though no investigation has started on the matter, the security has been strengthened in and around the University, while the students pray things return back to normal soon.

Trump repeats his insistence that Iran will not be allowed to obtain a nuclear weapon — File photoWASHINGTON: United States President Donald Trump on Monday repeated his insistence that Iran will not be allowed to obtain a nuclear weapon. Writing in all-caps, the US leader tweeted: "IRAN WILL NEVER HAVE A NUCLEAR WEAPON!" The tweet came a day after Tehran announced it was further winding down observance of parts of an international deal struck to ensure that the country does not secretly develop a nuclear weapon under cover of its civilian nuclear industry. Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 deal negotiated under his predecessor Barack Obama. Also read: Trump predicted Iran war before 2012 US elections
  15. It's only been a few hours since the trailer of Malang was released, but it's become internet's favourite meme already. As if people were eagerly waiting for the trailer to drop only to make memes out of them. In case you haven't seen the trailer yet, it's a revenge drama that goes like this - Aditya Roy Kapur, guns, fighting, Disha Patani, dancing, dancing, romance, guns, fighting, Anil Kapoor, guns, guns, Aditya Roy Kapur, fighting, fighting, shirtless pictures, kunal kemmu, tattoos, fighting, fighting, guns. Like people say "Aap chronology samjhiye!" © T-Series The trailer is good, but super confusing. No one knows what's happening and why is it happening. But, at least people on social media were clear about one thing - Malang is going to give them sufficient fodder to churn out memes and that's exactly what happened. From mocking Tiger Shroff for Aditya and Disha's crackling chemistry to taking digs at their bosses for making them work till late, no one was spared by the meme makers on social media.

  16. On January 4, 2020, Irfan Pathan called it a career after serving as a leading pacer of the Indian cricket team who will always be remembered for his first-over hat-trick against Pakistan during the 2006 Test series in Karachi. He evolved into a dependable batsman for the sake of his team. Out of his comfort zone initially, Pathan became the player on which skipper Sourav Ganguly had the utmost faith in the middle order. Many believe that the decision to transform into an all-rounder, even though not his own, eventually became the reason that would ruin his entire career in the years to come. Pathan was one of the very few cricketers who continued to remain successful even after being dropped from the Indian cricket team. Making his last appearance in an India jersey all the way back in October 2012, Pathan depended on his skills as an excellent analyst of the game and quickly got picked up by sports publications to talk about cricket. He currently works as a commentator and an analyst with a major sports broadcast company and it is safe to say that the beginning of a new year was absolutely the right time to hang his boots and stay in touch with the sport using all the first-hand knowledge he had accumulated for so many years. View this post on Instagram Big day tomorrow for all the guys in the ipl auction... who are your top 5 picks,guys??? #ipl #auction A post shared by Irfan Pathan (@irfanpathan_official) on Dec 18, 2019 at 8:10am PST But the former cricketer now confesses the biggest regret he has had in his career. "People start their career when they are 27-28 and then go on to play till 35. When I was 27, I had taken 301 international wickets, so that was it. That is the only regret I have," said Irfan Pathan in an interview with Star Sports. "A 27-year-old Irfan Pathan, at the peak of his career, should have got more opportunities but it did not happen for whatever reasons. No complaints but looking back, there is regret, " he said. "I knew after 2016 that I am not going to make a comeback when I was the highest run scorer in Mushtaq Ali trophy. I was the best all-rounder and when I spoke to selectors, they were not very happy with my bowling," he added. Even though Irfan Pathan played 29 Tests, 120 ODIs and 24 T20Is for India and claimed 301 wickets, he believes that he should have had more opportunities to represent his country on international and world stages. © Reuters Pure talent for the Men in Blue, Pathan achieved stardom at an early age of 19, which used to be very rare at the time because opportunities like the Indian Premier League (IPL) didn't exist back then. A fierce pacer known for his 'banana swing', many believe the man behind the downfall of his career was the then Indian head coach Greg Chappell, the man who asked Pathan to become an all-rounder. Irfan Pathan could have been another Zaheer Khan or even better but then Greg Chappell happened.. — ð¦ (@AndColorPockeT) January 4, 2020 Focusing more on his batting skills led to the young cricketer compromising on his swing. Out of form, he tried to tweak his bowling action which significantly brought down his pace and his swing but very little came of it. By the time the IPL came into being and Indian cricket boomed, it was too late for Pathan to excel in either of the two sides of the pitch. He couldn't be great either with the ball or the bat. And so, a 24-year-old Irfan Pathan made his last appearance in the longest format of the game in 2008. Even though the cricketer went on to represent India until 2012, the flair that the 19-year-old Vadodara boy had was long gone. © Reuters Having said that in 2017, the former pacer came forward to say that it wasn't Chappell but his injuries that ruined his chances of playing more cricket. “I know lot of people said Greg Chappell ruined my career which is not true. No one can ruin anyone's career. What you need to do, you need to do. You alone are responsible for what you do,” said Pathan during the 2017 edition of the IPL. “When I was dropped from the team, I was unfortunately injured. After that making a comeback was a bit difficult. I don't blame anyone,” he'd said back then. An athlete's life is such. One small decision could change their career for the good or the bad. That's the high risk that comes along with the high reward and players just have to live with it. As far as Irfan Pathan's career is concerned, it was a great one nonetheless. View the full article
  17. Apple changed the iPhone design a few years back with the launch of iPhone X. It introduced the notch with the iPhone X, which was then adopted by various manufacturers and we started a whole bunch of similar-looking phones. But now, if the rumours are something to go by, it looks like Apple is looking to change things once again. Apple's next iPhone, which will most likely be called the iPhone 12, will have a design that's inspired by the iconic iPhone 4. The reports of the same came out after several design illustrations showed up online. The illustrations were spotted by the folks over at LetsGoDigital. The patents were published by the Japanese Patent Office on December 23. © LetsGoDigital As you can see, the images show a few notable changes, especially when it comes to the design. The notch is clearly gone. But that also means Apple will now have to put the selfie camera under the display along with all the facial recognition tech. We can't see those things on the design illustration, but since Apple can't eliminate them, our guess is that they'll find some way to hide them under the display. If not that, then we'll at least see an in-display fingerprint scanner. Perhaps the TouchID will make a comeback? Another thing to note is that the display now has sharp rectangular corners instead of rounded ones that we've been seeing for a couple of years now. That's also a major design, and it'll be interesting to see how handles the bezels too. Here's a rendered image to give you an idea of what the phone may look like - © Ben Geskin Obviously, the final design of the phone when it actually arrives in the market will look a lot more refined. That's usually the case with the phone design seen on these patents and renders. So, we now play the waiting game and see what Apple has cooked for us. The iPhone, as usual, won't arrive before September, which means we have a lot of time to reflect on these renders. Source: LetsGoDigital View the full article
  18. Netflix drama "You" will return for a third season! This was revealed by Penn Badgley, who essays the role of a murderer Joe Goldberg ,during an interview with "Entertainment Tonight" . The 33-year-old actor said he would reprise his role in the third season. The actor spilled the beans while talking about the role of Love Quinn on the second season that released last week. "She doesn't appear to be the same kind of person. She doesn't appear to be the same kind of predator. She doesn't appear to be the same kind of… you know, dare I say, in the third season — oh, god!," he said during the interview. Asked for more details, the actor said although he couldn't speak officially "but unofficially... it's going ahead". Based on 2014 novel by Caroline Kepnes, the "You" follows Joe Goldberg, a New York bookstore manager and serial killer (Penn Badgley) who falls in love with a customer named Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail) and quickly develops an extreme, toxic and delusional obsession.
  19. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are going to kickstart a new generation of gaming in 2020 and the only thing we know so far are the names and what the next Xbox looks like. However, new leaks have surfaced online that paint a clearer picture of both consoles. These leaks are not yet official but it gives us a better look at the power of each console. © Twitter/The-Driun According to a report by Digital Foundry, the PS5 will reportedly have a 9.3 teraflop GPU. The report was published by Eurogamer and it also details the GPU specifications of the Xbox Series X. The PS4 is capable of maximum 1.84 teraflops which means the PlayStation 5 will be leaps ahead in graphics prowess. The report also said that the PlayStation 5 will feature GDDR6 RAM, identical to what you can find on AMD's RX 5700 GPU. © Youtube Apart from these specifications, the report also claims that the PS5's GPU will be able to switch between three modes for backward compatibility. It will be compatible with PS4 and PS4 Pro tiles while a “gen2” mode is reserved for PS5 games. The other modes have been referenced as “gen 1” and “gen 0” modes to allow backward compatibility. The “gen1” mode runs on the same clock speed, GPU draw power and other metrics of the PS4 Pro: 36 compute units, a 911MHz core clock, and 218GB/s of memory bandwidth and 64 ROPs. © Microsoft In the same report, it was detailed that the Xbox Series X GPU is able to achieve 12 teraflops, however Digital Foundry describes it as “frankly ginormous, with signs pointing to a possible target of 12 teraflops.” If these leaks are to be believed, the Xbox Series X sounds a bit more powerful than the PS5, at least on paper. While the leak details both consoles and its components well, it is still unofficial information and needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Source: Eurogamer View the full article
  20. OnePlus is expected to showcase a concept smartphone at CES in a few weeks, however it seems like another OnePlus phone was spotted on a certification website. OnePlus generally launches a new smartphone sometime in April/May which is still months away, considering the listing has just appeared. It was spotted on China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) certification website by Twitter user Sudhanshu Ambhore. OnePlus 8 Pro 5G (IN2010) launch nearing soon, as it gets certified by MIIT.#OnePlus8Pro pic.twitter.com/ZvJCzjjuX6 — Sudhanshu Ambhore (@Sudhanshu1414) December 25, 2019 Ambhore tweeted out a screenshot from the website that gives us a sneak peek into what the smartphone could feature. While the main specifications were not detailed in the screenshot, it does have all the basic information about the phone's frequency bands. According to the screenshot, this OnePlus device is said to come with dual-mode 5G connectivity with support for a range of frequency bands. The listing comes with a model number IN2010 and is tipped to be the Pro variant of the OnePlus 8. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Given that the upcoming smartphone has been listed on a Chinese certification website, it is still too soon for the smartphone to launch. Previous rumours have suggested that the OnePlus 8 Pro will launch with a 6.7-inch curved AMOLED display and have a refresh rate of 120Hz. The smartphone is also touted to have a punch-hole camera instead of the pop-up mechanism on the OnePlus 7/7T Pro. There are three models expected to launch where the Pro variant will apparently be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 chipset. In addition to the triple-camera setup, the new OnePlus smartphones are also expected to sport a ToF (time of flight) sensor. View the full article
  21. Apple's new Mac Pro desktop machine just recently went on sale in India and it can cost you as much as Rs 38 Lakh. If that's not enough to leave your eyes wide open, then wait till you hear about the new Pro Display XDR. In case you remember, Apple also launched a new monitor to go along with the new Mac Pro machine. It's called the Pro Display XDR, and it's one of the best displays Apple has ever made. After the Mac Pro machine, Apple has now started selling the new Pro Display XDR in India, and it's just as expensive as we thought it would be. © YouTube/ Marques Brownlee Pricing and AvailabilityApple is going to sell the base variant of the Pro Display XDR for Rs 4,49,900. Yes, it's a monitor that costs Rs 4.5 Lakh. The base variant of the monitor comes with a standard glass on the front. If you want the one with a nano-textured glass, then it'll cost you Rs 5,29,900. It's also worth pointing out that the Pro Display XDR will not ship with a stand. Yes, you'll have to buy it separately and it'll cost you another Rs 91,900. We are trying very hard to resist kidney jokes here! But jokes aside, both the Mac Pro machine and the Pro Display XDR are made for professionals. Both the Mac Pro and the 6k monitor, as you probably already know, is overkill for an average user. Whereas for professionals and artists working on movies, shoots, music, etc. it's an ideal system that's going to keep up with their workload for a very long time. View the full article
  22. More often than not, politicians end up making some really weird claims, with no scientific reasoning behind it whatsoever, and we laugh at them until we realise these people are actually running the country in a way. Yep, that realisation brings us back to reality about how screwed up the country actually is because people like these are in power. But, unless and until there is an IQ cutoff implemented to becoming a politician, all we can do is laugh at them and hope that they think not twice but at least thrice before opening their mouths. With the year ending, here is a list of all the outrageous claims made by some politicians. 1. Speaking Sanskrit prevents Cholesterol and Diabetes © Reuters Starting with the latest one, just a few days ago BJP MP Ganesh Singh had the best idea to prevent cholesterol and diabetes. According to him, people just need to speak in Sanskrit to fight those serious diseases. Wow, the solution was always right there, I feel bad for doctors right now, looks like they're out of a job now. 2. Every desi cow's milk contains gold © Reuters Another 'golden' comment, literally. Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh loves desi cows so much he honestly believes they contain gold. His entire quote is a wild ride, tbh - "Our desi cows have a special characteristic. There is gold mixed in their milk and that is why their milk is golden. There is a blood vessel that helps produce gold with the help of sunlight. So, we have to keep those cows. If we drink desi cow milk, we will become healthy and can prevent diseases." John Mayer may have said 'your body is a wonderland', but Dilip Ghosh is saying 'our stomachs are a goldmine'. 3. Cows exhale oxygen © Reuters Now, I'm convinced that these people really consider cows are like some super beings. What else would explain so many hilariously bizarre claims relating to cows? Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat really thought - probably still thinks - that cows exhale oxygen. We've learned so many new things this year, the things we never even learned in school. 4. Wanting to make roads in Bhopal 'chakachak, just like Hema Malini's cheeks' © Twitter Well, this one is not a 'scientific claim', but it's still so outrageous that it deserved a place on this list. Madhya Pradesh minister PC Sharma the roads in Bhopal would soon be 'chakachak, just like Hema Malini's cheeks' Kailash Vijayvargiya's cheeks'. Even though the comment is about cheeks, it's not cheeky at all, it's just straight-up creepy. 5. PM Modi brought 'bad luck' to Chandrayan-2 © Reuters Remember Chadrayaan-2 and how things went wrong when contact was lost with just 2kms to go for the touchdown? Well, ex-Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy decided to put the blame on one person - PM Narendra Modi.He said, "He came here (Bengaluru) to advertise that he is responsible for the success of Chandrayaan. Once he set foot in ISRO centre, I don't know if it turned into bad luck for scientists. Scientists have toiled for 10-12 years. It (the moon mission) was approved by the cabinet in 2008-09 and funds were released the same year. Modi came here to claim that he was behind the launch of Chandrayaan-2." Bonus point 1 - Kauravas were test tube babies © Twitter This one is not said by a politician but it needed to be here, because someone literally claimed Kauravas were test-tube babies. Doesn't get any more worse. Basically, G Nageshwar Rao, the Vice-Chancellor of Andhra University, claimed, "We had hundreds of Kauravas from one mother because of stem cell research and test tube baby technology. It happened a few thousand years ago. This was science in this country...Mahabharat says, 100 eggs were fertilised and put into 100 earthen pots. Are they not test-tube babies? Stem cell research in this country was present thousands of years ago." I have no words. Bonus point 2 - PM Modi's tweet I want this Government to be criticised.

  23. Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said on Thursday that the fears of the armed forces have "proven true" after the special court issued its detailed verdict on the high treason case against Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf. "The concerns expressed in response to the short verdict in the case against Musharraf have proven true today after the detailed verdict," Maj Gen Ghafoor said as he addressed the press at General Headquarters. READ MORE: Musharraf treason case: All evidence points to crime of high treason, court says The DG ISPR said that the words used in the verdict were "beyond humanity, religion and civilised behaviour". Responding to sections of the verdict criticising the army for political interference, he further said that Pakistan Army was "a responsible institution" and its soldiers "had taken an oath to protect the country". Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said that for the armed forces, "the country comes first and the institution [of the army] later". Speaking about the gains made by Pakistan Army, ostensibly in the war against terrorism, Maj Gen Ghafoor said a lot had been achieved over the last 20 years. "We will not let this stability be reversed under any circumstances," he said. "Pakistan Army will fail the attempts of external as well as internal enemies." The DG ISPR said that the armed forces knew how to defend the institution's integrity and "will give an effective response to internal and external enemies of the state". "We have been fighting conventional wars, then sub conventional wars and now, we are facing a hybrid war," he said. "We know the nature of this war and how to fight it," without specifying the connection of hybrid warfare with the issue at hand. Going off on a tangent, the DG ISPR said that efforts were being made to weaken Pakistan externally. He said that some elements were trying to destabilise the country by making people fight with one another. "Some people are dreaming that they can defeat Pakistan," he said. "This will not happen. If we know about the threat then our response is also in place." The DG ISPR continued, saying that Pakistan Army had successfully defended attacks from abroad and defeated insurgencies in the country. "InshAllah, we will also fight the current design being pushed by anti-state elements," he said. It was not immediately clear if he was talking about the judgement in question or some unrelated matter. He said that the prime minister and army chief had spoken in detail over the verdict. "The army chief met the prime minister and conveyed the sentiments of the armed forces to to him," he said. The DG ISPR said that the government will soon inform the nation about the decisions taken during the meeting between the army chief and the prime minister. He said that Pakistan Army and the government have been working for the past couple of years to take Pakistan into a direction where it is safe from prevalent dangers. "We are taking Pakistan in that direction and we will successfully do so," he said. High treason case A special court court had sentenced Musharraf to death on Tuesday for imposing a state of emergency on November 3, 2007, adding that it had found him guilty of high treason in accordance with Article 6 of the Constitution of Pakistan. The detailed verdict of the court was issued earlier today (Thursday). Dismissing criticism of a trial conducted 'in haste', the special court in its detailed verdict stated that Musharraf had “been afforded more than his due share of fair trial” and “given every opportunity to defend himself”. The court further said that “the facts of the case are well documented” and “clearly demonstrate guilt on part of the accused”. "The trial of high treason is the requirement of the Constitution against those individuals who undermine or attempt to undermine the Constitution by any means," the judgement stated. "This Court after the presentation of undeniable, irrefutable and unimpeachable evidence by the prosecution against the accused reaches to the conclusion that indeed accused [Musharraf] is guilty and deserves exemplary punishment.

Not just his ensembles, but a quick look at his sneakers and you would see him wearing sneakers that are OTT. © Viral Bhayani Abhishek is a massive sneakerhead who has been time and again spotted in his Nike Jordans. His airport ensemble looks relaxed but his sneakers always turn the tables around. Recently, he was spotted in an uber-cool garb with the edgy blue bomber jacket and blue jeans. The way in which he has pulled together this look is commendable. But, his sneakers here are a true winner we would say. © Viral Bhayani Exhibit A: © Kicks On Fire © Kicks On Fire Abhishek is seen wearing Air Jordan 3 Tinker that has an NRG silhouette. The shoe features an iconic mix of shades like white and black cement as it pays tribute to the original Air Jordan sketch of Tinker Hatfield.
