  1. The Uncharted movie adaptation has had a very rocky journey so far; however, we can finally calm down as a release date for the movie has been set. Sony has given a release date of December 18, 2020, for the movie which means we aren't that far away from seeing Nathan Drake on the big screen. © YouTube For what we know, Tom Holland will be playing Drake and the movie will be directed by Dan Trachtenberg. The action-adventure movie does not have a plot summary yet and it is not confirmed whether the movie will follow the plot from the video game series. Uncharted is more like a modern spin to the Indiana Jones genre where Drake and his friends go off to mysterious locations to hunt treasures. The game is known to have massive action set pieces, a lot of parkour-ing and of course some witty lines. © Sony So far there have been four main games in the Uncharted video game series starring Nathan Drake and one spin-off featuring his friends. There have been speculations that the movie will be about Drake becoming a treasure hunter. However, this is just based on speculation right now. © YouTube Uncharted 4: A Thief's End was the last instalment in the series that wrapped up Nathan Drake's story and is probably the last Uncharted game to be made by Naughty Dog. The studio has hinted that Uncharted 5 could be a possibility and may be made by a different studio. Naughty Dog is the highly acclaimed studio that made the Uncharted games and 'The Last of Us.' There is also a big screen adaptation of 'The Last of Us' in the works.
  2. You know what's more important than the way you dress, how you speak, the confidence you exude and the personality you carry? It's how you make a first impression on someone and that overtakes anything and everything you're trying to be or are. Making a first impression on an autopilot has to be good, duh, but that's not entirely your thing to decide. What I mean is, first impression is usually decided by a crowd around you or the person you're meeting for the first time and once that impression is made, you can't really change it, because no one really believes in second chances when it comes to first impressions. In fact, you might have heard the saying 'first impressions are last impression' and there is a lot of truth in that. © Eros International Making a first impression on a girl you're meeting for the first time is equally important. That's because if you're really in to her or meeting her for the first time, you really want to crank it up a bit and be the best version of yourself but you don't want to over-do it. You want to remain calm and subtle, ambitious and confident and someone she'll gel with easily. Here are 3 important things to keep a check on if you wish to make a good first impression in front of a woman you really like. (1) Stand Tall Well, literally and figuratively. By this I mean, don't stand in front of her with a hunched back because that denotes lack of confidence and dullness and you certainly don't want to give out those vibes. Correct your posture, stand tall and talk with extreme confidence when you do talk to her. Don't be over-confident. That's a really big turn off. Just be yourself and don't look down and talk to her. Look in to her eyes and make conversation, talk loud enough for her to hear you clearly and don't act cocky, boast or show off. She's on a lookout to spot these things in you and if she does, you're out bro. Just stand tall! © Pinterest (2) Don't Focus On Yourself Too Much I know it's a tough situation at times, especially when you're an introvert and you have to deal with anxiety every time you meet someone new. But the key is to not focus on making yourself comfortable as much as making the other person comfortable because when you make the other person feel comfortable, you automatically calm down because you both are calm and are within good energy together. The energy YOU HAVE created! By shifting your concern on someone else you shift focus on the knee deep anxiety that was making a home in you, while you were trying to make a good first impression. © Filmkraft Productions Pvt. Ltd (3) Be Good At Small Talk Of course if you meet her for the first time, you wouldn't divulge personal information, neither would you ask her to do the same. This is where small talk really comes in handy. If you start making small talk, you might catch her interest over something and then maybe you can start talking about that very topic. Small talk plays a crucial role in connecting with other people. Just keep the conversation flowing and unless you've stalked her before hand, ask her questions every now and then, through the small talk to get to know her better, before eventually making the conversation a bit more personal. © Eros Entertainment There are obviously other things you need to keep in mind to make a good first impression. For instance, always keep smiling, be on time and don't make the other person wait, be comfortable in your clothing, have an introduction prepared, don't ask too many personal questions in one go or talk shop all the time and most importantly, breath! If you follow through with these plus the important ones mentioned above, there is no way you can make a bad impression on her, or anyone else ever.
  3. June 2019 is a fiery month for all that is good on TV and the movies and we can't wait to become absolute couch potatoes next month onwards. Apart from that, going to the movie hall and spending a good amount of money will be worth it in June because Hollywood has something good in store for us. It is action-packed, it's funny, it's horrific and it's animated, and with every genre coming together to give you maximum entertainment, there is nothing else you really need. (c)20th Century Fox So, yes, look out for these 5 kickass Hollywood movies in June, book your tickets sooner than soon and don't forget to thank us. (1) X-Men: The Dark Phoenix (c)20th Century Fox Well, we've been waiting for this one far too long now and we hope it's not a sheer disappointment. While some of us can't wait to see Sansa aka Sophie Turner in a different avatar altogether, most of us have been waiting to see what Dark Phoenix really unfolds. All we know is the X-Men face their most powerful foe, Jean Grey. Jean is hit by a mysterious cosmic force when she's on a mission in space and after her return to earth, she's just infinitely powerful and a little bit evil, all because she really hasn't learnt to control the power she possesses. Banking on Sophie for this one. Releasing on: June 7, 2019 Watch the trailer here (2) Men In Black: International (c)Sony Pictures Releasing We have 'Men In Black: International' the fourth part of the series releasing this year on June 14th and we can't keep it together, because the trailer looks really badass, with some new elements drawn in. The sad part though is that we don't have the regular partners in crime this time, and that's the kinda camaraderie we're really going to miss. But fret not, 'MIB International' promises another alien invasion and two agents looking to kick some alien ass. Releasing on: June 14, 2019 Watch the trailer here (3) Child's Play (c)United Artists Releasing Although the scary doll movie has maintained its sequels pretty well, the new one isn't a part of that. In fact, the new 'Child's Play' is the remake of the original one and it seems as scary as the first one. The movie definitely has some old-school slasher vibe. Can't wait to see this again. Releasing on : June 21, 2019 Watch the trailer here (4) Toy-Story 4 (c)Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures This one is packed with a lot of action and nostalgia because Bo Peep is coming back after more than 20 years after making a debut back in 1999. The movie will hit the theatres in June. Releasing on : June 21, 2019 Watch the trailer here (5) The Dead Don't Die (c) Focus Features There's a chance this movie won't be in theatres here, but even so, download it when the time is right and watch it for sure. Because if you're in to zombies, this one's a funny one for sure. To add some light humour to an intense horrific year, we have another comical (of sorts) Zombie movie, with an awesome cast. The movie is obviously about a small-town police department battle some zombies. Of course, it's like any other Zombie movie but the cast surely makes this better. With Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Selena Gomez, Steve Buscemi, Rozie Perez and Iggy Pop, this movie looks damn promising. Releasing on: June 14, 2019 Watch the trailer here There are lots more releasing next month but these are surely going to have you at the edge of your seat. Most of the releases are sequels and maybe 2019 is the year of some great sequels (read 'Avengers: Endgame'). So, maybe plan your weekends with these movies on your agenda, for sure.
  4. If you're a gym bunny, you'll definitely agree with the statement that good shirtless selfies can act as an extremely potent motivator, when it comes to fitness. We should all be fit, because of a million reasons that we read about every single day, and the vanity bit associated with shirtless selfies are just a bi-product of that. However, if that pushes us to the gym and Yoga studios, what's wrong with that? We all like validation for our hard work, and that perhaps is the most harmless of them all. (c) Instagram/mrkhanna So homies, keep on clicking those gym selfies, if they make you happy. Haters will hate, no matter what. To help you out, here are 3 clever, tried and tested hacks to help you look more muscular and shredded in shirtless selfies. 1. Check the lighting. By that, we don't essentially mean that there should be plenty of light in your frame. Sometimes, you can do with little light as well. What you need to take care of is the angle. For indoor shots, like locker room shots or bathroom shots, top lighting works the best. If a light on the ceiling is the only source of light, stand underneath that and take 2 steps back. This arrangement will make your abs pop, and give extra definition to all your muscles. (c) Instagram/ranveersingh If it's daytime and you're standing next to a window, or any place with daylight, avoid letting the light hit you straight, flat on your body. Let it come from the side. Diagonal with a steep angle works the best because it makes your muscles look extra defined. (c) Instagram/soorajpancholi 2. When are you clicking it. Timing is important. If you want to look shredded, it's important to make sure you avoid clicking selfies when your body is retaining a lot of water. Immediately after a workout is a great time to ensure that does not happen. Early in the morning, before ingesting anything works out as well. Keep your core tight, suck your gut in, stretch your abdomen a bit, and you're sorted! (c) Instagram/varundvn 3. Your skin plays a big role in deciding how the selfie will come out. Your skin needs to be moisturised to be able to look more defined, because glossy surfaces look well-defined - it's common sense, really. So make sure you apply some moisturiser all over just before clicking it. However, you don't need that if you have just completed your workout and you're all sweaty from it anyway. Also, our skin looks the best right after a shower, so that may just be the best time to click a shirtless selfie. (c) Instagram/ranveersingh Keep them in mind and get ready for all the DMs.
  5. No matter how bizarre a hack is, as long as it works it's absolutely fine. At least that's what I have learned from people around me. And we Indians seem to have acquired the special talent of being a pro at 'jugaad'. Think of the most unimaginable hack possible and chances are that an Indian would have tried and tested that hack to his benefit already. Just like this hack of using cow dung to keep a car cool in the scorching heat. And when I say use it, I mean changing the car's colour to brown. FYI, the car in question is a Toyota Corolla Altis, the road price of which starts from Rs 16 lakh (approx) © Facebook In what can be rightly called the 'coolest' hack ever, a woman in Ahmedabad coated her entire car with cow dung, as the temperature shot up to 45 degrees. Thanks to Facebook user Rupesh Gauranga Das for sharing the pictures with us, and enlightening us with this ingenious hack. According to his post, the car owner is from Ahmedabad, but the car's number plate states that the car is from Maharashtra. South Bombay to be specific. Das wrote in his post, "Best use of cow dung I have ever seen. It's in Amdavad. To counter 45 degrees heat temperatures and protect car from getting hot, Mrs Sejal shah has plastered her car with cow dung. Getting cool." For those wondering how effective the trick is, cow dung is actually a kind of insulator that blocks the heat of the outer surface from getting into the inner surface. That's the reason a lot of people in rural areas coat the outer walls of their houses with cow dung, to keep their house cool. And here we thought parking our car under the shade of a tree will do the job.
  6. If you're a talk show fan or a lover of intense yet enlightening celebrity chats, then 'The Late Show With David Letterman' is probably already on your favourite list. For the uninitiated, David Letterman is one of the most famous TV host, producer and writer in America and his show is one of the most successful running conversational shows in TV history. He's interviewed many famed personalities from Barack Obama to George Clooney, and the latest celebrity who is going to spill some beans on his life and career is none other than the King of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan.

  7. If you've been lifting for around 3-5 years and have not done the foolish thing of jumping on steroids, you know the struggle. Gaining muscle is very hard and things are not the same as your first couple years of muscle gain. -You don`t recover as fast. -Your lifting numbers don`t go up as quickly as they used to be. -You don`t gain muscle at the same speed despite eating well. I have more than 9 years of lifting experience and I got myself from 63 kg to 78kg from 2010 to 2018. However, in 2018 I decided to bulk up even more and add more size to my frame. This is when I went on a 6-month bulk, which was a consistent long term bulk which I had never done before. And as a result, I went from 80kg to 85 kg in a span of 6 months (Oct 2018- April 2019). Following are the strategies I used which helped me and I feel can help you as well if you are an advanced lifter who`s training without any steroids in your system: 1. Train 4 To 5 Times A Week:- I trained consistently for 4-5 sessions a week. Every week, it was no less than 4 times a week and never more than 5. As an advanced lifter, your ability to train hard increases and as a result, you need more rest or recovery days. © Getty Images Remember, going to the gym every day or even multiple times a day won`t speed up the process. It will only hamper your recovery. 2. Training Duration:- Most sessions of mine last anywhere between 60-90 minutes including warm up and stretching. Now, if you are not experienced enough, time duration could be less (say 45-70min). This also has to do with how intense your sessions are. The aim should be to enter the gym, do a good warm up, hit the required number of exercises and sets and leave. Having a fixed time frame in mind makes you stay focused and reduces the chances of spending hours at gym texting, clicking selfies and chit-chatting in the name of training. 3. Rep Range:- Those who follow my YouTube channel @ikhsPack know that I generally train in the low rep range. However, for this bulk, I mostly trained in 8-20 rep range. Most compound exercises were done using a rep range of 8-12 while for isolation, I stuck to 12-20. This moderate to high rep range ensures that you stay safe from injuries generally occurring at lower rep ranges and overall less CNS fatigue making you train more frequently. Don`t make the mistake of thinking that high rep ranges don't build muscle. They do, provided you go till 'Failure'. 4. Diet: Whatever you've read in the above points won`t help if you fail at this part. And trust me, most individuals fail at this part only. Training for an hour a day is very easy compared to what you put in your mouth for the next 23 hours. © Getty Images I had to eat a lot during this bulk and this was the most challenging part. Quantity of every good food consisting of carbs and protein increased while fats remained moderate. It was very tough during the initial few weeks to eat that much food. But after a while, I got used to it and I`m sure you will as well. Foods that were eaten on a regular basis were – Rice, chapatti, potatoes, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, protein powders and fruits. Protein was kept at around 180gm while manipulating carbs and fat intake depending on how the physique was looking. That`s all folks! Use these tips or share with a friend who`s trying to beef up.

  8. Phase 6 of General Elections 2019 is about to see the light of the day this Sunday on 12th May 2019 with 7 states going to polls. While all is well when it comes to putting our democratic rights to use by choosing to vote, we need to bear in mind some finer details before casting our votes this election season. © Getty Images Whether you are a first-time voter or happen to be an old goose, being aware of some aspects of electing our representatives is always a good idea. Right from the very basic, yet crucial requirement of knowing the candidates from your constituency to finding resonance with their respective ideologies and manifestos, it is important to keep in mind that we make an aware decision that would not only impact our society but the future of our country too. © Getty Images Here are the 5 things Indian youth need to keep in mind before casting their vote this election: 1. Employment The biggest deciding factor for every youngster who is heading out vote, should be this. As of 2018, 18.9 million Indians were unemployed in the country which is by far the highest over the last few decades. Make your decision on the basis of which party you believe is most invested in the matter and would walk the talk when it comes to providing jobs to millions of jobless Indians. © Getty Images 2. Freedom & Security Freedom to exist however we want, love whoever we want, eat whatever we want, wear whatever we want, study what we want, challenge the wrong when we see it, and much more. Look for Lok Sabha representatives who would ensure that we don't feel threatened for enjoying and employing our fundamental rights or live in fear because we know our rights. © Getty Images 3. Secularism Perhaps one of the biggest needs of the hour. Let's take into consideration the candidates who encourage pluralism and secularism in our society. Let's do away with extremities of any kind and people who propagate such ideologies within our society. India draws its strength from diversity and its willingness to welcome one and all to its golden soil. © Twitter 4. Education Education and a strong, fair opinionated disposition should be the right of every Indian citizen. Privatisation and the constant need to manipulate our education system is not to be tolerated under any circumstances. No matter which party comes into power, we must look for such candidates who would continue to keep education away from all political propaganda. © Getty Images 5. Start-Up Economy Given the kind of boom the Indian start-up ecosystem has seen in recent times, and all the promising opportunities it holds for our country and its future, we as young adults should choose someone who is willing to work on the start-up scenario, improve it and help in the growth of a start-up economy which would allow thousands to build their dreams and see them succeed. An aware decision will be the best decision you make this election.

Keep them simple and that should tell your story for you.
  11. Due to the popularization of the fitness industry, thousands of fitness coaches are available right now and their demand is on the peak. Right from the 'not to be taken seriously' ones who teach you hacks to lose face fat and belly fat in 7 days to those who speak actual facts and back their practice with the latest evidence, you will find every type of trainer out there. © Unsplash The problem is that a lot of people fall easily for the quick hacks and sorcery-promising ones and do not really pay attention to the latter. That is unless they screw their happiness and waste their money on the quick fix ones and then go to the evidence-based practitioners. If you are looking to work with a professional for your fitness goals, here are a few qualities they should have: 1. Professionalism © Unsplash Like I mentioned, if you are looking to work with a professional, that is what they have to be. A professional. That means they should clearly communicate with the client what can be expected in the coaching, their timelines, what do they expect from the client, their coaching style, their communication channels and turnaround times. Along with that, what results the client can expect from the program and what are the things they would be required to do. 2. Ethical A coach who is trying to sell you a particular supplement or a fishy product under their sponsorship agenda or asks you to take certain drugs saying that you absolutely need it to get good results, are NOT the best lot to help you out. A coach should only 'suggest' supplements as it is not their role to make recommendations or ask you to buy things. They should suggest stating the benefits only and keep the decision-making power totally in your hands. Drugs, should not even come up in a conversation with your trainer. 3. Should Walk The Talk If your coach is obese, does not train regularly, does not eat well, seems like they themselves need a coach and are not the best person to be a coach to someone. By walk the talk, it does not mean they should be ripped and flash abs year round but should be what is considered fit and have a supporting lifestyle. If they don't, you will never be inspired to go an extra mile forward for them to get better or take them seriously in the first place. 4. Creates Plans Individualized For You © Unsplash If someone takes your money under the premise of coaching and ends up sending you some template files or cookie cutter programs, they are selling you templates and not coaching. Coaching, on the other hand, means that the coach in question takes information from you regarding your goals, your lifestyle, your current nutrition, training, sleep habits and then creates a plan suited for your lifestyle and goals. It is YOUR plan. Not the one that is a one-size-fits-all plan. 5. Transparency & Education A coach should not just tell you what to do and ask you to follow him blindly. A coach should be able to give you a satisfactory explanation as to 'why' a particular thing or a plan has been set for you and how it would benefit you. Along with that, the coach should equip you with the necessary information and education so that you can be independent after a few months to take charge of your own fitness. © Unsplash Yes, there still might be situations where you would still be with them. Be it a contest prep or a powerlifting meet or a sports event. But those are special instances or situations where someone keeping an eye on your progress and planning does help. But, if just staying in shape means you being with a coach and taking his coaching for a lifetime, that coach is making you a handicap and not helping you out in reality.

  12. It's absolutely true dogs adapt to mannerisms and temperaments of people around them, especially of their owners and we have one dog in Pune doing that exact same thing. A stray dog in Pune goes to a temple and joins the devotees in singing bhajans and this has been the most happening and adorable piece of news we've written today TBH! Twitter The video was shared by someone on Twitter and as soon as it was shared, it went viral! This devout little dog belongs to my friend's factory. Every Thursday evening, without fail, he walks over to the temple next door and joins the keertan. Then he has his share of prasad and trots back home. Every single Thursday! :) pic.twitter.com/HiuluOJdiy — sushma date (@sushmadate) 11 April 2019 Now tell me, isn't this the most astounding thing you've seen? Even though i don't believe in temple's, I'd go just to hear this dog sing bhajans and maybe get myself a therapeutic fix in the bargain. Obviously, after the video went viral on Twitter, people had to react to this absolute cuteness. Please share a video of him having prasad too. It's amazing, unlike anything i have ever seen. — Le Samouraï (@Sheshnath13) 12 April 2019 Ya, I would love to watch him eating his reward ðððð — Chowkidar Sushma Shaw (@SushmaShaw8) 14 April 2019 This totally made my day! — Flâneuse (@SharmiliChudail) 12 April 2019 Lovely doggo.

What's important is that he fills the space with such endearing and infectious energy that we feel good writing about such stories even though they're happening miles away from us.
  13. Vote. It is one of the simplest words in the English dictionary, but those four English letters clubbed together hold a world of power. One that is capable of deciding the fate of our country and its inhabitants, for the next five years. If you are of age, that is 18-years-old or more, and eligible to vote, we cannot stress enough on the importance of your participation in the 2019 General Elections. Every individual with a voter card and a name on the electoral roll is shouldering a crucial responsibility at the moment. © Getty Images However, voting only matters if it led by solid awareness and considerations of various permutations and combinations that will benefit the country and its people as a whole. So, be aware of the candidates in consideration, the parties they represent and the ideologies the said parties uphold. Besides all that, here are 10 things to keep in mind before casting your vote for Lok Sabha elections 2019 that began today. © Getty Images 1. You will only be allowed to cast your vote with proper photo/voter identification authorised by the government. 2. Polling officers are allowed both inside and outside the polling premises. 3. The Election Commission of India also appoints observers for every polling station. They must always be around. © Twitter 4. Only the Election Commission of India-appointed media is allowed at the polling venue. 5. Only physically impaired voters who cannot cast their vote independently are allowed to have a help/company inside the booth. 6. Only the Election Commission of India-authorised public service personnel should be on duty. © Reuters 7. Police officers cannot be present inside the polling booth unless there is a law and order situation in the premises. 8. The Election Commission of India has mandated that 3-4 electors are not allowed inside a polling booth together. 9. Using a mobile phone is prohibited in the polling booth. The Election Commission of India has ordered that officials of duty need to keep their phones on silent mode and step outside the polling station to take/make calls. © Reuters 10. Voters are also prohibited from carrying arms or any form of liquid with them inside the polling booth. Every single vote cast is a voice speaking up, every vote cast will decide the state of being of Indian citizens, its economy and growth, defence and the possibility of peace and unity in the years that will follow the results of the election. So, regardless of where you are, and how cumbersome the journey to your polling booth might seem, it is extremely crucial for each one of us to head out, cast our vote and let our voices be heard. We hope each one of you eligible voters reading this will head out and cast your vote, and make a choice for a better tomorrow.
  14. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is credited for many things in cricket. His leadership skills allowed India to scale new heights in international cricket. Dhoni's unorthodox glovework has become a case study for budding wicket-keepers. And, needless to mention, his famous 'helicopter shot' has now become a trademark amongst batsmen. We've seen a few batsmen in the past repeating Dhoni's trademark shot. Whether it was Rashid Khan, Prithvi Shaw or Rishabh Pant, everyone appears to be busy emulating Dhoni on the field. And, Hardik Pandya isn't far behind. This is how Hardik Pandya got the helicopter to land in Wankhede against CSK #IPL2019 #IPLT20 #IPL12 #MI #HardikPandya #CSK #OneFamily (Video Courtesy: Hardik Pandya Instagram Page) pic.twitter.com/ofIfv6qmXk — CricFit (@CricFit) April 3, 2019 The 25-year-old, who had earlier shared a video of himself practicing the iconic stroke, officially joined the bandwagon after successfully pulling off the 'helicopter shot' against a team led by none other Dhoni himself during the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) on 3rd April. Twitter/@IPL Coming in to bat in the 17th over, Pandya showed signs of aggression on the first delivery of the penultimate over after he smashed Shardul Thakur for a six over square leg. Then, after Kieron Pollard hammered Bravo for a six on the third delivery, Pandya gave Mumbai a final flourish by scoring 16 runs (6,4 and 6) off the final three balls. M15: MI vs CSK – Hardik Pandya Six https://t.co/GjfmMNB7va via @ipl — Dixit Bhargav (@dixitbhargav09) April 3, 2019 He helicoptered Bravo's yorker into the top tier - something Dhoni would have also enjoyed from behind the stumps - on the fourth delivery. Then, he punched a drive through extra cover for a boundary. And, finally, slashing a fuller delivery over third man to finish with a six. A staggering 29 runs came off Bravo's final over with Pandya finishing at an 8-ball 25 alongside Pollard's 7-ball 17. While Pandya played some brilliant strokes, his version of Dhoni's 'helicopter shot' undoubtedly captured the imagination of cricket fans on the social media. That helicopter shot sixer from Hardik Pandya with Dhoni behind the stumps. ð this man made difference between both sides #MIvCSK pic.twitter.com/lF6MeqhnmG — imhrushið (@imhrushi45) April 3, 2019 OWWWW!

  15. Netflix is a Pandora's box which keeps spoiling us with a million options to choose from. This week, if you're in for a bit of a sci-fi kick just like us, then here are 5 show recommendations that will give you a pretty edgy visual experience: 1. The OA If you didn't watch the first season when it came out around 3 years ago, then please prepare to binge-watch that first. For everyone else who was left on a cliffhanger with that weird metaphysical ending and hated Prairie for not letting us in on her fate, the second season is finally here and is supposed to be crazy. 2. Love, Death + Robots This is probably the most trending sci-fi show that everyone is talking about even if they haven't really watched it. This animated series has episodes with major underlying themes in all of them and is supposed to be worth your time. 3. The Order Consider this as a borrowed Harry Potter concept twisted with the sci-fi world. The series follows a college student who discovers a whole new world of scary creatures and is surrounded by only werewolves for company. 4. Russian Doll Not that it's a new addition to Netflix. It's been there for a while, but if you still haven't watched it, save it for a weekend binge. It will make you cringe and boggle your head when you follow the lead character's life span cycle which is like a roller coaster stuck on repeat. If you want to question scientific multidimensional reality and also like a bit of existentialism like 'Waiting For Godot', then just watch this. 5. Travellers This show follows a bunch of travellers who send their consciousness back in time to actually save the society from a downfall. A secret time travel show with a heroic mission thrown in? sure, sounds like a good watch.
  16. The one single thing that keeps bros outside the gym and missing out on the muscle gains, is injuries. An injury can backtrack your progress by months, at the very least, when it hits you. Many people think that injuries are a result of just poor form or heavyweights. And they could not be more wrong. Injuries are equally caused by poor exercise selection and by choosing the wrong exercises, you can get injured by just lifting light weights too. Here are the three most common 'poor' exercises people pick for shoulders and smart ways you can fix them by making some adjustments: 1. Upright Rows When doing the upright row, you will often see that the elbows go above the shoulder. This position leads to an internal rotation that makes your rotator cuff muscles rub with the shoulder blades. This error can lead to shoulder impingement or inflammation. The Fix: You can still do the upright rows by widening your grip to around twice that of your shoulder width. Along with that, ensure that you are not swinging your arms and your elbows are not going above your shoulder height at the top. These modifications will activate the target muscles more prominently while keeping you in a safer position. 2. Behind The Neck Shoulder Presses I had covered this exercise in my article on a similar topic. You can read it here. A research done in 2015 has shown that for doing behind-the-neck shoulder presses, you need good flexibility in the external rotation of your shoulder. Most men do not possess that flexibility. By doing this movement, you are simply straining the neck and the shoulder muscles while risking an injury. The Fix: The plain old shoulder presses or the military press. It is much safer and you could lift a heavier load on it. 3. Front Raises This is one of the most popular exercises done by a lot of people to target the front delts. There is no issue doing this exercise or any significant injury risk by itself, but there is a good chance that this exercise is pretty unnecessary for most people and leads to other issues for most people. The issue is that of muscular imbalances. Your front delts are targeted pretty well when you do pressing movements or compound movements for your shoulders. People who add front raises to their routines often ignore the other heads of the shoulder muscle. The most common being the rear delts. The rear delts play a major role in having a proper muscular balance. It has been observed that they have a significant role in reducing shoulder injuries. The Fix: Your front delts do not need special emphasis via isolation movements. You can skip it altogether and instead add a rear delt isolation movement into your routine. The face pulls could be a great exercise to add to your routine, especially if you do not do anything to isolate the rear delts.

  17. These two words can fill any man with dread, but make sense when it comes to buying men's underwear. While some men like to lounge in the comfort of an airy pair of boxers, for others they can be too loose to comfortably pull off.

  18. We have to admit that we can never get enough of the kick that good ol' action and crime thrillers hold for us. When it comes to films, we honestly have a hard time choosing between those pheromone-inducing racy action movies, and those featuring our preferred clan of superheroes that occasionally grace the silver screens. © Netflix However, ever since we laid our eyes on the trailer of Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam starrer 'Triple Frontier', there is no denying the fact that it has gotten us hooked and left us asking for more. So while we still have to wait a little longer for 'Triple Frontier' to hit our screens, what better way to wait for it, than to get prepped and build it up to the showdown? So here is the plan. Let's check out these action movies in the meantime, before 'Triple Frontier' officially makes its way onto our screens tomorrow. 1. Polar A neo-noir action film, it has been directed by Jonas Åkerlund. The story traces the journey of Duncan Vizla, world's top assassin, also known as The Black Kaiser. All set to reap the benefits of retirement, The Black Kaiser finds himself back in the game much against his will, when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. The new army of killers are younger, faster, and ruthless who will stop at nothing to have him silenced. Mads Mikkelson's stellar performance and the raw edginess of the plot will give a edge-of-the-seat experience. 2. Wonder Woman A wonderfully presented superhero origin story, it charts out Princess Diana's transformation from a naive warrior to an inspiring superhero. The film may seem like an an over the top representation of a story that presents the protagonist as an enigmatic and compelling force. If nothing else, who can fault the charm and insane performance that Gal Gadot managed to pull off with this one. 3. Hold The Dark This American thriller directed by Jeremy Saulnier, follows the story of a writer named Russel Core who is called in to visit an Alaskan village and in search of wolves that killed three children. In a bid to unravel the truth, the wolf expert instead finds himself discovering a harrowing mystery. The intense plot and riveting picturisation will surely keep you on your toes! 4. Transformers Another action movie which needs no introduction because it is pretty much a classic. A 2007 American film series directed by Michael Bay, the movie is all about the adventures of the two intergalactic races of robots, Autobots and Decepticons. They battle for the ultimate power source, All Spark and sets out to enamour the audience with its thrilling and one-of-a-kind action packed journey. 5. Outlaw King 'Outlaw King' happens to be a brilliant tale that traces the journey of the exiled crowned king of Scotland, Robert the Bruce, who leads a band of outlaws to reclaim his throne from the clutches of the English. With Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce, his charisma and persona pervade the entire narrative of the film. Truly a must watch, if you like to explore and are looking to movie beyond the mainstream.
  19. The revolution that 'Gully Boy' brought into the film industry goes beyond the intricacies of storytelling and film making, great casting, as well as a show of talent shouldered not only by lead actors Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt, but even the supporting cast of the film which included names like Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Varma, Vijay Raaz, Amruta Subhash and Srishti Shrivastava, amongst others. © Excel Entertainment The film has been a massive hit at the box office; however commercial gains aside, 'Gully Boy' has also managed to gather a crazy and loyal fan base that is here to stay for a long time to come. From avid movie-goers to ardent hip-hop fans, 'Gully Boy' has built a strong fan following with everything it had to offer. If you also happen to be one of the many loyal fans 'Gully Boy' has succeeded to bag, there is an awesome news for you all. Less than a month after the release of 'Gully Boy', director of musical drama, Zoya Akhtar made an exciting announcement.

  21. A son has set foot in his motherland once again. A soldier is on his way to reclaim his pride that lies in donning the uniform, a father is all set to hold the apple of his eye once again. A husband is bringing back the biggest joy known to his wife. A son is giving his mother a piece of her heart back, and shall have his father beat his chest filled with inexplicable pride and joy, as he welcomes Abhinandan back home. Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured by the Pakistani army on 27th February, after his MiG-21 Bison crash landed on the other side of the LoC, is finally back home after spending 58 hours in the Pakistani Army's captivity. IAF Pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman returns to India from Pakistan Read @ANI story | https://t.co/L9i9Veuty5 pic.twitter.com/pi4LcFaPzg — ANI Digital (@ani_digital) March 1, 2019 What makes this moment all the more special is that it is no longer a private matter for Abhinandan's family or his fellow teammates in the Indian Air Force, but rather, it has transformed into a moment of collective celebration that every Indian is rejoicing in. The kind of solidarity Abhinandan's homecoming evoked in the entire nation could be felt in waves over the last 48 hours. The intensity of pride, hope and gratitude that exuded from the hundreds of people gathered at the Wagah-Attari border earlier today, waiting there for hours on end with bated breath to welcome their hero back, was palpable even through the recordings. While many danced to the beats of dhol and shouted cries of welcome, all of India's hearts beat as one until their own was safely back on Indian soil. IAF Wing Commander #AbhinandanVarthaman at Wagah-Attari border, to cross border soon to enter India. pic.twitter.com/a1hVjwroVw — ANI (@ANI) March 1, 2019 Even as scores of people came together to cheer for Abhinandan today, the subtext of political gains and acquisitions kept running strong in the backdrop, never too lazy to ease out of public glare. A known politico from down south made claims about the ruling government's chances of winning by a majority in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections following the airstrike on 26th February, while Pakistan's leaders claim to be handing over Abhinandan as a 'gesture of peace' to prevent further escalation of the ongoing tensions between the two countries. As if all that wasn't enough, amidst this turmoil, there's a certain segment of people rooting for a war to break out between India and Pakistan.

History stands witness to the fact that war has robbed countries of not just manpower, but it immediately disrupts economies, renders the environment inept but the loss of human life and property is enough to set a country back by a couple of years, besides a host of other things which involve draining monetary as well as human resources of a country. But I am not here to elucidate on the havoc wars can wreck on society, but I am merely trying to point out that politicizing a tragedy (that this could have turned out to be) is the last thing we need right now. This moment purely belongs to Abhinandan for what he endured for our nation and its safety, what he stood for in the moments of his captivity and how he came through it all by the end of it. So, let this be his moment, one he will not forget till his last breath. Let's not steal his thunder today. I salute you India's son #Abhinandan #WelcomeHomeAbhinandan pic.twitter.com/xuz8mVrRz7 — Rahulkrishnan (@SRahulkrishnan) March 1, 2019 Meanwhile, a family is whole once again, a squad got their mate back, and the country welcomed a great soldier back in its forces. As for the rest of us in the country, following the news updates on TV and social media, writing and commenting on Abhinandan's homecoming, we have found a hero in the IAF pilot. Abhinandan has turned into an inspiration for us, not only for his display of selflessness, valour and principles, under given circumstances, but he has allowed us to peek into the life of a dedicated protector of the nation, who deserves nothing less than our absolute respect, gratitude and appreciation. Welcome back, Wing Commander Varthaman!
  22. Since we live in more tolerant times where relationships are concerned (or so I'd like to believe), a lot of people are choosing to make peace with their past. That's mostly because the world is shrinking and social media's unprecedented outpour of information really never lets you forget things. So, in order to keep your mind more sane and calm, it's only relevant to make peace with your past and by past, I mean your 'ex'. © Pintrest Most of you would want to loosen up the knotted ties between you and your ex and the reasons could be many. You could either want to shed away all the malice you hold for one another, or you still want them in your life because inherently they are good people or you still may have feelings for them, in which case, it's better to let go than figure out ways of having them in your life. But if the first two reasons are keeping your thoroughly confused then we have ways to make sure you have a healthy relationship with an ex. Here are 5 ways to keep in mind if you're looking at refreshing ties with an ex: (1) Are They In The Same Place As You? Yes, I know this is an obvious point to ponder over, but we seldom think what the other person wants in order to satiate what we want. So, the first step is to ensure your ex wants to be friends too. Because if she doesn't, then you really can't force free will can you? You can just wish them luck and hope they're happy. © Pintrest (2) Can You Trust Them Again? If you guys ended on bad terms then you have to think about how you want to go about this. If she did something to break your trust, can you accommodate trust in your equation, again? Of course, it wouldn't be in the same capacity as before, because you're not trying to get back together, you're trying to be in a good space as friends. So, if you trust your ex enough to not engage in any negativity or turn around and start a fight, then you should go ahead with it. © Twitter (3) Do Either Of You Have Feelings For Each Other? This one's a tricky one only because you may think you're over her, but you're really not and that can be a bit blurry while you're making a decision to keep in touch with her. Maybe sit down and give it a thought about your feelings for her. If you think they haven't changed since you started seeing her then maybe give it some time. © Pintrest (4) Do You Hold A Grudge? You can hold a grudge against your ex for a number of things, that is why she's your ex, to begin with! But if the grudge is minor and not too vicious then perhaps you can work on letting it go, if you think friendship with her is absolutely worth it. If it's a major grudge and cannot be reversed, then there isn't a point in looking out for any association, because you'll never be able to let the grudge really go. © Eros International (5) Have You Had Enough Time Apart? It's practically impossible to extend an arm of friendship when you've just broken up. Ideally, it takes about more than half the time you've spent with your ex, to maybe be friends with them, after you two break up. If you've never been friends before then it's a tad tough and only time apart can make that possible. So, take some time away from each other. If the break up is mutual and amicable, then definitely take time away and start a new association as friends. If it wasn't an amicable break-up, maybe take a lot more time away, get rid of the negativity you hold against them and try again. © Pintrest Break-ups are fairly hard but if two people are ready and willing for a resolution and want to take the dynamic from a negative to a positive by starting a brand new friendship, there are ways you can work things around and move away from the bad things that have happened and be good friends with your ex.
  23. Remember the time when aftershaves weren't popular yet, and your barber used to rub your face with a block of 'Fitkari' post a shave? Well, if you're too young and from a metro city, you'd probably not even know what 'Fitkari' or Alum is, and for good reason. Fitkari or Alum (also called potassium alum, potash alum, or potassium aluminium sulfate) is a colourless astringent compound which is a hydrated double sulphate of aluminium and potassium, used in solution in dyeing and tanning. It is easily available in the market, and here are 5 reasons why every man should keep some of it handy in his bathroom cabinet. 1. As An Aftershave Alum can be used after a shave instead of an aftershave lotion. It stops bleeding from minor cuts, and is a great skin healer. © Getty Images 2. As A Natural Toner And Skin Tightener Alum is an amazing toner, and also tightens the skin, giving it a natural glow. Especially for older people who suffer from sensitive skin, this can be a great alternative to regular products. © Instagram/Tigerjackieshroff 3. As A Cure For Mouth Ulcers Alum can be used to cure mouth ulcers and canker sores. All one needs to do is put some alum powder on top of the ulcer/sore, leave it on for about 30-40 seconds, and then wash it off. 4. For Bad Breath Add a pinch of alum powder along with a pinch of rock salt to a glass of warm water and use it as a mouthwash. It acts as a great natural alternative to a mouthwash. © Getty Images 5. To Get Rid Of Dark Circles A little bit of alum powder mixed with water, when applied on dark circles, will help you get rid of them. One product, so many benefits! The more you know, they said.
  24. It's 1955. The Cold War is in full swing. Thriller writers are having the time of their life. As for the rest of us, the threat of nuclear armageddon hangs over us, like, well, a mushroom cloud. In the middle of all this, the USAF's B-52 Stratofortresses keep making sorties, flying out of bases in the UK, going up to the Soviet Union's border. Just in case… via GIPHY Fast forward to 2018. The world's changed unimaginably. The President of the United States argues with people on something we call 'Twitter'. But the B-52 is still soldiering on, flying missions in the South China Sea, reminding the PRC that the United States is still around, even if it's bogged down with fights over silly walls and whether the President had an affair! The Mean Machine - Boeing's B-52 Stratofortress The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a legendary war machine - it's been around for longer than most of us, and thanks to constant upgrades, it's still on the frontlines. © Tech. Sgt. Nathan Lipscomb for US DoD The Balkans, the Gulf War(s), Afghanistan. It's been there, bringing a reign of destruction on people Uncle Sam doesn't like. And it's gonna be around for many years to come... The B-52 project started in 1946 - just after the Second World War ended. The Cold War was starting, and the US wanted something to maintain its dominance. Designed to carry massive nuclear (and thermonuclear) weapons, the B-52 first took to the air in 1952, entering service in 1955. The B-52 Was A Harbinger Of Doom Even though the B-52 was later used with conventional weapons - it was responsible for carrying out several 'carpet bombing' missions in the Vietnam war - it was really meant for World War Three - carrying hydrogen bombs to attack the Soviet Union if the 'balloon ever went up'. via GIPHY One of the bombs the B-52 carried was the B61- which had a yield of nearly half a megaton. Another was the Mark 39 - which, hang on to your hats, had a yield of nearly 4 megatons! For reference, the bomb that levelled Hiroshima was just 20 kilotons. Always Ready As part of Operation Chrome Dome, B-52 bombers were kept constantly airborne - the reasoning being that even if the Soviet Union managed to 'take out' the US's ICBMs on their launchpads with a first strike, the B-52s (and the US Navy's missile submarines) would be around for retaliation. Even better, they could dissuade the Soviet Union from even trying to start a nuclear war. © Senior Airman Malcolm Mayfield for US DoD All That Flying With Nukes Was Risky Did you know that we nearly faced nuclear armageddon in 1961? The US and Soviet Union weren't about to attack each other (though they came close on several occasions in the sixties). What happened was that a B-52 carrying two Mark 39 bombs broke up in mid-air, and the crew eventually bailed out. As it turns out, the two bombs fell out of the aircraft, and one of them got activated - with only one final switch preventing it from going off! The B-52 Even Shot Down A Fighter Jet! You wouldn't imagine a big, lumbering bomber to be able to shoot down one of the most legendary fighter jets ever, but that's exactly what happened in Vietnam back in 1972 - the tail gunner in a B-52 managed to shoot down the newest, deadliest jet fighter of the time - the MiG-21. A one-off? Heck, no! Another crew in another B-52 repeated this feat some days later! Pretty impressive, isn't it? © Staff Sgt. Michael Battles for US DoD This Massive Bomber Might Be In Service For Another 50 Years The B-52, like every other piece of military equipment, has been getting upgrades throughout its life - the last major version first flew in 1961, with production stopping a year later. Of course, it's been given a lot of nips and tucks over the years, with fancy new electronics being retrofitted. © Senior Airman Jonathan McElderry for US DoD That means that even the youngest B-52 is well over 50 years old - but what's even more surprising is that the USAF might keep on flying these aircraft for another half-century. That's right, the B-1 Lancer (a gorgeous machine for sure), the F-117 stealth fighter, and the B-2 stealth bomber came much later, but nothing has managed to replace the B-52! © NASA There's a new upgrade programme on its way, with new engines, and new avionics, and who knows, the next generation might grow up marvelling at this 'Big Ugly Fat F@#er' (the nickname given to it by US troops in Vietnam) which has managed to outlast every other machine!
  25. If dry skin constantly troubles you no matter how much you moisturize and have a regular skin routine in place, it's probably because of other factors like your stubborn skin type and harsh weather conditions. However, lucky for you, it is easily fixable. Here is a list of things you can do to tackle the problem of stubborn dry skin, so you never have those icky cracks breaking out in the middle of your skin surface: 1. Take Shorter, Spaced Out Showers In the Winter, long, hot showers might sound enticing, but they have a negative impact on your skin: hot water reduces the skin's moisture and further removes the natural oil in your skin that is responsible for making your skin stay soft and smooth. So, if you really want to commit to getting better skin, you need to try lowering the temperature a few notches. Secondly, limit your showers to one a day, especially in the Winter when the dry air is already harming your skin by making it dry. 2. Use Other Moisturizing Products Too © Getty Images Your grooming routine would at least comprise of soap, body wash, and body cleanser. Make sure you replace them with products that promise to hydrate your skin and lock in the moisture. 3. Moisturize Everywhere © Getty Images Hydration is not only necessary for the face and hands. You should hydrate your entire body, from your face to your feet. 4. Switch To Balms In The Winter © Getty Images Having a moisturizing routine in the Winter is great but if it's not working well for your skin in keeping it hydrated, it's time you switch up things a bit. Balms usually work better than moisturizer as there are more chances of the goodness to seep into your skin with a moisturizer instead of a cream. Petroleum jelly is also a good option. 5. If You Use The Heater Frequently In The Winter, You Also Need To: Add water in the room. Heaters tend to make the skin dry and scarred. Adding water in a bowl and or starting the steamer in one corner keeps the humidity in check. Don't forget to shut the door so the moisture stays put in the room.
