  1. Anything and everything that can be said about 'Game of Thrones' Season eight has been said. Yes, it sucked but everyone has to agree that the scene with Arya Stark killing the Night King was so badass and iconic. It was one of the best scenes of the show, actually even the entire season. Now, we know that great things always act as a source of inspiration but this time, it may have gone too far. Turns out that an Indian show - 'Aladdin - Naam Toh Suna Hoga' - has the same exact scene, literally down to every single detail. This scene looks familiar doesn't it? But the scene from the Indian series Aladdin was aired last year. https://t.co/NgsVEwjRde#GameOfThrones copied this. That's how lazy it was pic.twitter.com/wtvdaumOwH — Radhakrishna Sharma (@MatKarma) June 15, 2019 Imitation may not be the best form of flattery after all. While this narrative - Indian show blatantly copying the biggest show in the entire world - might be expected, turns out that there's a possibility of the exact opposite thing being true. Basically, there's a chance that 'GoT' copied 'Aladdin'. Yep, these are some strange times. Some people are saying the episode aired last year, and some are saying that it aired after the GoT episode, the rest are just laughing at the hilariously weird - and low quality - recreation of the 'GoT' scene. India did it before it was cool. from r/india The Reddit user that brought the scene to light captioned it saying, 'India did it before it was cool', but did India do it first? And even if it did, I'm pretty sure the makers of 'GoT' are not looking for inspiration from an Indian TV show that even we didn't know about until now. Oh, we're also not done with the whole copycat game. Here's a scene from the movie 'Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter'. The movie came out in 2012, just btw. The title tho. Gareebo ka Arya Stark, Copied Scene from Game of Thrones... https://t.co/xtjnSefY4g — Gaurav Mukherjee (@garvsays) June 17, 2019 The best part is instead of arguing about who copied whom, people on Reddit have just come together to find the logic behind how someone can kill a skeleton by stabbing it. What overthinking looks like.
  2. You don't have to be an expert and crunch some numbers to realise that digital cameras are slowly becoming a thing of the past. All you have to do is go out and look around. You'll quickly realise that smartphones have taken over and not a lot of people are carrying around a digital camera to take pictures. Well, if that's not enough, here's a chart that was put together by Statista with the help of the information obtained from the Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA). The offices of CIPA, in case you're wondering, include Olympus, Casio, Canon, Kodak, Sony, and Nikon, and we wonder what do they have to say about the numbers. Just look at those falling numbers. © Statista As you can see, things haven't been looking all that good for digital camera makers since the numbers have significantly gone down after a little spike in 2010. That number, by the way, was the all-time high in camera sales of 121 million units. Putting in simple terms, digital camera shipments have dropped a whopping 84-percent since 2010. Last year, the sales were recorded at 19.4 million shipments, which is the lowest number since 2001. And we're not talking about just the portable digital cameras. The shipments of high-end interchangeable lens camera have also gone down. So, why is this happening? © YouTube Smartphones! Yes, it's a very simple answer. An increasing number of people have now started using smartphones to take pictures. They're more convenient and have gotten a lot better over the years, thanks to all the advancements in the field of smartphone photography. In fact, you don't necessarily have to splurge big bucks to get a good smartphone with a potent camera. Smartphones like the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Realme 3 Pro, etc. have proved time and again that you don't have to own a flagship phone to shoot great pictures. Of course, things will only get better as you drop more money, and flagship phones like the Huawei P30 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10 are some great examples of that. We don't have a fresh chart with new numbers to show, but this one from 2017 does a great job of explaining why the digital camera shipments have gone down since 2010. Just take a look at the number of people using smartphones for photography. © Statista Around 85 percent of pictures were taken from, well, a smartphone. Astounding imagery offered in a compact form factor. And by the way, a smartphone can do a lot more than just make phone calls and take good pictures, so what's there to complain about?
  3. When your character has always been the good guy no matter what (even when you have to execute people who literally murdered you), finding out that you have to kill that one person you love has to be a hard and emotional thing. Poor Kit Harington was so distraught, so much in disbelief when he learned that Jon Snow is the one who'll have to stop the 'mad queen' who is also his aunt and the person he loves. (He's also a Targaryen - not that it mattered - so incest is okay I guess) A new documentary called 'The Last Watch' which basically shows what was happening behind-the-scenes while the filming and production of Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' was taking place is out. It shows all the actors preparing and shooting for the final season, and learning the ending and their character's fate. The documentary also shows the table read for the final episode and well, Kit's real reaction to finding out Jon kills Dany and well, as expected, it's the same as our reaction to that scene. He's so emotional, almost crying, that people are calling it better than the actual final scene. Look at it yourself. Poor Kit is having a proper existential crisis. And, compare to the episode. The best part is Emilia Clarke's reaction. How are her eyebrows like that? I mean, people aren't exaggerating that much. Kit looks like he went through so many emotions in just a few seconds. Obviously Sophie knew. The stages of Jon finding out he was the one to kill Dany. Note: Kit Harington did not read his script ahead of time, so this is him finding out for real. Sophie Turner obviously did, because LOOK AT THAT KNOWING SMIRK. Sansa knows what's up. pic.twitter.com/sVjKUi9Ye6 — Alex Bruce-Smith (@alexbrucesmith) May 27, 2019 I know, right? Watching Kit Harrington learn that Jon Snow is going to kill Dany is actually more emotional than watching Jon kill Dany pic.twitter.com/eWGoFDljP8 — Laura Hudson (@laura_hudson) May 27, 2019 The best series of images to ever exist. Kit Harrington's reaction to finding out that Jon kills Daenerys is everything #TheLastWatch pic.twitter.com/LuAEBaWj4t — Shar (@99thprecincts) May 27, 2019 This was us watching season 8 as well. game of thrones season 8 moodboard pic.twitter.com/5vTpg0lxCt — patricia (@heartfiIiaz) May 27, 2019 People are getting emotional. kit's reaction to finding out that jon kills daenerys literally has me in tears stop this immediately #thelastwatch pic.twitter.com/Yk82CNn9eG — Ù (@emiliacIarked) May 27, 2019 Very emotional. Seeing Kit Harrington's reaction to his final scene was heartbreaking #GameofThrones — Nerd Soup Aaron (@nerdsoupmonkey) May 27, 2019 Just look at him! First and last table read. Goes to show how the series went downhill. #EmiliaClarke #KitHarington pic.twitter.com/PDjy2A3hai — Irina Meller (@IrinaRatcu) May 27, 2019
  4. Let's just get one question out of the way before we dive deep into the discussion, we are, in no way, doubting the immense talent and limitless potential of the current leader of the Indian cricket team as a scorer and a batsman. If we look down the past, the only athlete that comes even closer to being mentioned in the same sentence as the all-time great Sachin Tendulkar has to be Virat Kohli, currently ranked number one on International Cricket Council's list of batsmen in both ODI and Test formats of the game. Chasing the legacy of someone who is considered to be the finest product of the game since the 'master blaster', Kohli has literally been on top of the game for ages. Fans and players from all over the world, yes, even the ruthless Aussies, believe that Kohli's got what it takes to challenge every single record created by notable batsmen in the history of international cricket. “I love watching Virat Kohli bat. I love his aggression And serious passion that I used to have. He reminds me of myself”, Sir Vivian Richards had once said about the Indian prodigy and he was bang on point. The man, who's known to have a hot head on his shoulders, has found a way to channelise all that rage through his bat. When the Delhi-born decided to spill water all over Sri Lanka's joy in a 2012 matchup in Hobart, Australia, cricketing world first took notice of the beast in the making. Scoring an unbeaten 133 off just 86 deliveries to successfully chase a mammoth total of 321 in as few as 40 overs, Kohli made a name for himself. “The king of run-chase”, they called him. King Kohli was born. Jump seven years ahead, Virat Kohli, the batter has only risen in ranks and become one of the most successful hitters of modern day cricket. 2018 was specifically his year as ICC just happened to decorate his trophy room with all of the most prestigious recognitions they could. In a single year, Kohli, the batsman became ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year, ICC Men's Test, Cricketer of the Year and ICC Men's ODI Cricketer of the Year. Not to take away any credit from Virat Kohli the skipper as he was honoured as the Captain of ICC Test Team of the Year and Captain of ICC Men's ODI Team of the Year also. ICC Men's Cricketer of the Year â ICC Men's Test Cricketer of the Year â ICC Men's ODI Cricketer of the Year â Captain of ICC Test Team of the Year â Captain of ICC Men's ODI Team of the Year â Let's hear from the man himself, @imvKohli! #ICCAwards ð pic.twitter.com/3M2pxyC44n — ICC (@ICC) January 22, 2019 However, there always has been that one stain on the captain of the Men in Blue that Kohli's captaincy has been successful only because of the presence of a certain former-skipper of the squad who is considered to be the greatest leader of Team India, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. “I think the best thing for Virat Kohli is that he has got MS Dhoni as keeper. You can see whenever he is in the deep, MS Dhoni helps him with the field, talks to the bowlers in crucial situations,” Indian Hall of Famer Sunil Gavaskar had said in March. Surely, there were numerous Kohli supporters who shut his claims down way back then. “He is a great captain on his own”, they'd said. And then, the twelfth season of Indian Premier League (IPL) happened and all those supporters began to believe in their own words lesser and lesser. With no Dhoni to back him up in Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Kohli's reign crumpled a little with every match that he lost. Currently sitting at the bottom of the points table of the league, it might be too late for RCB to make a miracle return as well. It is evident that the horrible losing streak is having an adverse impact on Kohli's performance as a batsman. In the six matches, the Bangalore captain has amassed just 203 runs with only one half-century in a deflating loss to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Andre Russell's bat. "We just weren't good on the given day. That's the whole story of RCB this season," Kohli said in disappointment after losing the match against Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals on Sunday. A player must never be judged on the basis of a month-long tournament, certainly, but if you have the remotest idea about the mentality of an athlete, especially as competitive as Kohli, such stents have a devastating effect on your form and psyche. With the 2019 ICC World Cup less than two months away, a man so humbled must not lead the Indian roster, if we want to win it all, that is. This is not a half-cooked notion either. People from all over the country believe that Kohli should step down from the throne and let somebody like Rohit Sharma spearhead the team. Virat the batsman ð¤ But Virat the captain is hampering his batting at the moment. should step down and concentrate on his batting. — happy mohanty (@HappyDebabrata) April 7, 2019 Virat Kohli plss..,plsss, you retire from captain of rcb then rcb will win plss, don't disappoint us ,pls — Ek Villain (@EkVillain9091) April 7, 2019 Let the truth be told: Virat is not captain material. Time to change the captain! — Vishwanath Narayan (@Vishwanath0305) April 7, 2019 Virat Kohli should Retire With Immediate Effect from Indian Team's Captaincy. Atleast we can have hope for World Cup. Rohit Sharma should lead Team India in World Cup Atleast Virat Kohli will be able to focus on his Batting. ð — Alokk Verma (@AlokkVerma75) April 7, 2019 Anyday better captain then virat No doubt about that — Sachin Raj (@rajsachin767) April 7, 2019 Is it just me that thinks @ImRo45 should captain team India too !!! #MumbaiIndians #TeamIndia — Glorious Girl (@GloriousGirl_97) April 7, 2019 Dear @BCCI make @ImRo45 captain of India for ODI & T20 and if possible then for world cupâ¤ï¸ no doubt Virat is better batsman but Rohit is better captain than him #Rohitsharma — Shraddha_SW (@Shraddha_wagh09) April 6, 2019 Dear @BCCI make @ImRo45 captain of India for ODI & T20 and if possible then for world cupâ¤ï¸ no doubt Virat is better batsman but Rohit is better captain than him #Rohitsharma — Shraddha_SW (@Shraddha_wagh09) April 6, 2019 Make no mistake, none of these people are criticising Kohli as a cricketer. All they ask of him is to take some time away from captaincy and focus of bringing back the beast of a batsman he once used to be and has the potential to do so.
  5. It's been three years since 'Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice' and Zack Snyder is so done with people still asking for an explanation of one specific thing. Batman kills people and for him, that's that. No more questions, everyone just needs to find a way to deal with it. Recently, while answering questions about 'Watchmen', he also talked about how fans still come up to him to talk - or criticize - the dark tones of his movies and the fact that both Batman has killed people. For this, he just has one response - 'Wake the **** up and move on already'. Here's the actual quote, and boy he did not hold back. “Once you've lost your virginity to this fucking movie and then you come and say to me something about like 'my superhero wouldn't do that.' I'm like 'Are you serious?' I'm like down the fucking road on that. It's a cool point of view to be like 'my heroes are still innocent. My heroes didn't fucking lie to America. My heroes didn't embezzle money from their corporations. My heroes didn't commit any atrocities.' That's cool. But you're living in a fucking dream world.” Well, oh wow. Zack went the eff off! Obviously, this got a reaction out of people, some favourable, some not so much. Well, he sure did. Zack Snyder has zero chill lmfao pic.twitter.com/eDAnO7Ore1 — t. walters (@lores_truly) March 26, 2019 Honestly, don't know.

Woke up my daughter to remind her Batman kills people and she's living in a fucking dream world if she thinks otherwise pic.twitter.com/G32xalzNMV — Spencer J. Gilbert (@SpencerJGilbert) March 26, 2019 Well, you're not wrong. Zack Snyder: “That's cool. But you're living in a fucking dream world.” People Who Need Superhero Stories: “That's the whole idea, guy.” https://t.co/KdFWHzJ3Zn — Dean Trippe (@deantrippe) March 25, 2019 Yep. Zack Snyder talks a big game but not ONCE in any of his films did Superman punch someone into the sun — Cam Williams (@MrCamW) March 26, 2019 Good points are being made. I wish Zack Snyder would have woke the **** up and realized you can't just alter everything Batman stands for and think people will be happy. https://t.co/sveya9JN4D — Frederick Joseph (@FredTJoseph) March 26, 2019 Well. Batman intentionally going out at night to commit murder makes him just as bad as the psychos he fights. This change that Zack Snyder introduced was the first straw that ended up breaking the DCEU's back. — The Excellent Adventures of Eric (@EricShotFirst) March 26, 2019 Okay, then. I want to note that although Zack Snyder is wrong about every single other thing, he's definitely right about the silliness of a Batman killing prohibition in movies — Dad (@fivefifths) March 26, 2019 my guy is driving a car with tomahawk missiles on it through the middle of a large city. There's gonna be some casualties. — Dad (@fivefifths) March 26, 2019 I think you either get camp Batman or accept that Gritty Realism Batman has probably broken a neck or two — Dad (@fivefifths) March 26, 2019 There's more criticism. there's a difference between a sensible "death is an inevitable consequence of my war on crime" and snyder's "real heroism is shooting someone in the face" — b-boy bouiebaisse (@jbouie) March 26, 2019 I'd say logically, the lines are again kinda blurred to the point of ridiculousness when you're talking a guy who's blowing buildings up — Dad (@fivefifths) March 26, 2019 Which is wrong. that's fair! i just think that the problem with Snyder isn't that he thinks Batman kills but that he thinks the killing—and the violence broadly—is what makes Batman (or any superhero, really) heroic. — b-boy bouiebaisse (@jbouie) March 26, 2019 Save it. Okay, but did Zack Snyder not read Under the Red Hood? Like, the entire conflict of that story is that #Batman DOES. NOT. KILL. And before any Snyder fanboys come at me with "he used guns in the 40's" save it. — Ready for Bloodlines 2 (@deathandsaints) March 26, 2019 Exactly. which is why it is so important to him that he doesn't. Batman would rather see a maniac who killed, essentially his adopted son and maimed a friend, live to serve his code of not killing that he lets The Joker go... MORE THAN ONCE. — Ready for Bloodlines 2 (@deathandsaints) March 26, 2019 Probably not. Does Zack Snyder know Batman is pretend? — Benjamin Bailey (@BenHBailey) March 26, 2019
  6. If the names Mufasa, Simba, or Timon, Pumba and Rafiki mean anything to you, or succeed in evoking a sense of deep-rooted belongingness and nostalgia, chances are that you were around during the golden era of kids entertainment that any millennial has had the luck of living through. 'The Lion King' happens to be one of the most incredible kids' movies ever and our childhood was made all the more memorable by Mufasa's kindness and playfulness, Rafiki's wisdom and great comic timing, as well as Timon and Pumba's crazy antics, besides a lot of other things! © Walt Disney Pictures Earlier, we had informed you that Disney is all set to release the remake of the 'The Lion King' on the silver screen, which is being produced by Walt Disney pictures and shall be helmed by 'Iron Man' and 'The Jungle Book' director, Jon Favreau. View this post on Instagram ð¦ð New poster for #TheLionKing A post shared by Jon Favreau (@jonfavreau) on Feb 24, 2019 at 6:36pm PST The latest trailer of the film came out just hours ago, along with its first poster. One look at them will hit you with nostalgia from all sides! Yet, it is baby Simba's sneeze that wins it for us in this latest 1-minute trailer. As the future king of the Pride Lands, it is Simba's innocence and bright-eyed wonder that keeps your eyes glued to the screen, and sends the little kid inside you into an excited frenzy. The Disney classic is set to grace our screens again after almost 25 years, in a live action format, where prominent Hollywood actors will be heard lending their voice to our favourite characters. The film shall have Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, and James Earl Jones reprising his role as the glorious Mufasa. As Rafiki hoists Simba up in the air in that classic shot over Pride Rock and presents the animals of the Pride Lands with their future king, we can almost hear baby Simba's adorable little “roar” when ganged up by Shenzi's company. It's going to be quite a ride, and we suggest keeping those tissues handy when you watch it in the halls. 'The Lion King' releases on 19th July 2019.
  7. The fascinating world of sports becomes even more interesting when you see couples coming together from different sports and bringing the two worlds together. Here is a list of the top-most influential couples in the sporting fraternity, that are not only successful but also super fashionable: 1. Stephanie McMahon & Paul "Triple H" Levesque This wrestling couple has a long history of ups and downs but they're still stellar with their individual unique personalities. When together, they're one fashionable couple to look out for. Also, they're quite literally the most powerful couple in the world of sports, you don't want to mess with them. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Paul "Triple H" Levesque (@tripleh) on May 31, 2018 at 1:14pm PDT 2. Sania Nehwal & Parupalli Kashyap Sania Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap have had a close bond since they were children. The couple are great players individually and together also they work really well. Much senior to Parupalli, you might be lucky to spot the cute sight of Saina coaching him on the field. View this post on Instagram A post shared by SAINA NEHWAL (@nehwalsaina) on Feb 7, 2019 at 8:01am PST 3. Dipika Pallikal & Dinesh Karthik The ace cricketer and the squash queen gel well together with each other, as they do separately on the field. You must have seen both of them being extremely supportive of each other while attending each other's matches. Now that's the kind of support we need in our life. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dipika Pallikal Karthik (@dipikapallikal) on Oct 1, 2018 at 10:00pm PDT 4. Alyssa Healy & Mitchell Starcc Alyssa Healy, just capped a brilliant year by winning the prestigious Belinda Clark Award while also being named ODI and T20 player of the year during Australia's Women's Awards. And her husband, Australian cricketer, Mitchell Starc is probably the scariest pacers Down Under. Starc is a stellar player who is one of the few Aussies to take 100+ wickets and score 1000+ runs in Test cricket.

Sania Mirza & Shoaib Malik Shoaib Malik is a Pakistani cricketer and the former captain of the Pakistani side from 2007 to 2009. He's done pretty well for the Pakistani cricket team and then there is Sania Mirza, who doesn't need any introduction. She's constantly proven herself on the field and off it, she can be seen shutting people up and being verbal about the sexism women face in the world of sports. She's always been open about her relationship with Shoaib despite the criticism that she's faced, proving that as long as two people believe in that one relationship, the constantly poking media can't ruin it no matter what.

  8. Isn't Diwali the festival of lights? Who made it the festival of firecrackers? Like what's even the point of crackers. All they do is create noise and just worsen the already bad air. But, even after seeing how bad the smog in Delhi has been, people did not learn their lesson and continued bursting crackers, that too way past the permitted time, since Delhi people can do whatever the **** they want because “woh dilli se hai, bc”. So, obviously the air is worse, and people can't breathe. Not a big deal, right? It's not like we need oxygen to survive or anything. But, some genius people found a way to breathe properly and even burst crackers. They wore breathing masks while bursting crackers. For real. Take some time for the irony to sink in. No words for these smart people! Wearing mask and bursting crackers..#DelhiPollution pic.twitter.com/qBl8OV5quZ — Happie Soul!

  9. The mention of Diwali evokes glorious images of multi-hued Chinese lights dotting every building in the vicinity, a mixed array of lamps and candles gracing all the flat surfaces along the way, and of course the loaded plateful of sweets and the sparkling new clothes which complete the prep for the celebrations. What? You think I forgot to mention something? Yes, the puja, right? Of course, no Diwali celebration can begin without the blessings of Lord Ganesh and Goddess Laxmi, on this auspicious occasion. What else? You certainly aren't hinting at those loudmouthed elements that wreak havoc on Diwali, are you? © Wikipedia Well, seems like you are talking about the firecrackers after all. Well, given Delhi's current air quality and its inhabitants' constant struggle to take the next breath of air, besides of course the Supreme Court's ban on everything except green crackers, I'd say that petitioning for free-use of firecrackers at this point is a little ill-timed. The national capital is literally choking on its own air even as you read this. The latest CPCB data on Tuesday states that the overall Air Quality Index (AQI) was recorded at 394, which falls in the 'very poor' category, and warning has been put out that the situation will only get worse. Yet, here you are questioning my decision to do away with the mention of firecrackers on a Diwali post, and challenging the wisdom of the SC judges who called for the partial ban and even gave a free pass to bursting of green crackers between 8 pm to 10 pm tomorrow, in the spirit of the celebrations. © Tipping Points Film Anyhow, before you go any further to bash me over my cause to discourage you from bursting crackers, maybe you'd like to know that bursting crackers on Diwali has never been a part of ancient Hindu tradition. It simply happened to be a result of social interactions with China, which were adopted by Indians. Don't believe me? But history has proof. History shows that firecrackers were first invented in China, which made their way to India and other neighbouring countries due to trade movements. Historian P K Gode talks about the existence of gunpowder in 1400 AD and the first evidence of which could be found in the Tang dynasty in his 'History of Fireworks in India between 1400 and 1900'. © Flickr According to Chinese belief system, loud sounds and bright light helps to ward off evil, and therefore it was a popular practice in that part of the world. However, higher price initially prevented commoners from accessing it easily, thus was usually the royals who made use of fireworks for their personal entertainment. Numerous travelogues by ancient travellers validate this fact, as can also be seen in Marathi chronicle text 'Peshwayanchi Bakhar'. But the Chinese belief soon made its way to India and found acceptance as the signifier of victory of good over evil. Thus, people chose to light crackers during Diwali to mark their celebration of Ram and Sita's return from exile, after having defeated the evil Ravana. © Wikipedia Diwali was always meant to be a celebration of lights, the crackers came much later. Apart from deafening sounds and loads of air pollution, is only brings you smog (and a little more closer to your death). So go green this Diwali, it'll help us all in the long run.

  11. So you've recently completed a gaining period and you're headed for a beach bod in the next three months. The first thing that comes up in your mind is that you have to start doing your cardio to get ripped, right? Even today, majority of the population hitting the gym thinks that you need to do tons of cardio sessions to melt that layer of fat and get lean. What you don't understand is that too much of cardio can also lead to muscle loss. Yes, you read that right. If you put too much stress on aerobic training and prolonged cardio sessions are a regular for you, you may actually be killing all the gains that you made in past couple of weeks or months. Cardio Is Catabolic, Resistance Training Is Anabolic © YouTube Your body is in an anabolic state when it builds more muscle fiber than it breaks down. So when you do resistance training and provide your body a good nutritious diet, it becomes anabolic and you gain muscles. However, the opposite happens if you do not weight train and do not have nutritious diet. Your body becomes catabolic and eats up the muscle glycogen stores in the body making you look thin. You have to lift weights in order to build muscles. Cardio sessions alone can't help you with any muscle gain. What Is Cardio? © Pinterest Cardio is generally a term that is used for cardiovascular exercises in fitness Industry. This includes any and all the activities that elevate your heart rate and keep it elevated for a certain period of time which generally lasts for about 30 to 40 mins. Cardio could include any of the following activities, running, jogging, bicycle, elliptical trainer, zumba, aerobics, tabata, etc. Cardio exercises could be boring for majority of individuals as you have to do the same repeated movements daily again and again without much variation. Does Cardio Lead To Muscle Loss? Well, not in every case. What matters here is the diet that you are taking and the intensity with which you are doing your workout. If you fuel your body with enough carbs before and after your workout, you will probably not lose your muscles to those cardio sessions. This is because if your body has enough carbs and muscle glycogen available, it will not target muscle tissue for fuel source. However, if you are in a calorie deficit diet, and your cardio sessions make up for hours of prolonged sessions, there is quite high probability that you will suffer muscles loss. Because in this case, your muscle glycogens will be depleted and your body will turn catabolic as it needs fuel to support the energy required to perform the cardiovascular exercise. How To Prevent Muscle Loss © YouTube Yes, there is a way to prevent the muscle loss that may happen due to long cardio sessions. First, if the motive of your cardio session is to burn fat, then prefer a moderate intensity cardio over an HIIT. A moderate intensity cardio uses higher ratio of fat to glycogen than HIIT. When you do HIIT, your body uses more glycogen and carbs. Secondly, limit your cardio sessions for only a couple of days in a week. Too much of cardio is boring and undesirable. Even if you're doing it for fat loss, there are better ways to achieve a lean physique, which is mindful eating and weight training. Thirdly, if at all you do plan to do lots of cardio, make sure to feed your body with enough carbs so that your body does not turn catabolic.

  12. Being the most-watched sport across the globe, football undoubtedly translates into several benefits for the clubs and players. More viewership means more revenues from TV rights, sponsorships, and endorsements. With so much of money flowing in, clubs are able to match up to some crazy wages demanded by some of football's greatest superstars. Here's a look at the weekly wages of football superstars: 1. Graziano Pelle (290,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Move over Middle East! China has become the top destination for players looking to make a fortune. Following the footsteps of Hulk, Oscar, and Anelka, former Southampton striker Pelle joined Shandong Luneng. His desire to switch can definitely be attributed to the wages as opposed to improving his game or seeking bigger challenges. He reportedly earns about 15 million pounds every year. 2. Paul Pogba (300,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Manchester United had to literally empty every last bit of their pocket when they brought Paul Pogba from Juventus. His transfer figures of 89 million pounds created a furore across social media, with pundits and fans having the unrealistic expectation of him scoring in almost every game. Pogba's presence led United to a Europa League, and an EFL Cup. He reportedly draws 15.5 million pounds annually. 3. Kylian Mbappe (305,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Paul Pogba's compatriot earns slightly more than him. After all, PSG is becoming the economic powerhouse of football, and can match up to the crazy wages of superstars like Cavani, Neymar, and Mbappe. The 19-year-old striker has already drawn comparisons with Thierry Henry and if that's true, then his wages are fully justified. He earns 16 million pounds a year. 4. Hulk (325,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Hulk, true to his name, has created a pretty Herculean dent in the Chinese Football League. He joined Shanghai SIPG from Zenit St. Petersburg in Russia and has since then banged 34 goals in just 52 games. He's drawing wages of 17 million pounds a year but is now reportedly looking for bigger challenges, possibly in the English Premier League. 5. Cristiano Ronaldo (355,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Many would have expected either Ronaldo or Messi to top the list of the highest wage earners, but Ronaldo is not even in the top 3. If sources are to be believed, this goal machine's contract at Real Madrid gives him 18.5 million pounds a year. Ronaldo moved to Juventus earlier this week and has apparently taken a wage cut. 6. Ezequiel Lavezzi (385,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Argentine attacker Lavezzi plied his trade for big spenders PSG between 2012-16 before moving on to join Hebei China Fortune in the Chinese League. He failed to bag even a single goal during the 10 appearances that he made in the first season. However, Lavezzi redeemed himself with an astonishing 20 goals in 27 games in the very next season! For his services, Hebei China Fortune are paying him 20 million pounds. 7. Oscar (405,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Oscar created quite a storm when he left Premier League champions, Chelsea, to join Shanghai SIPG. He was at the peak of his career at 24 and given his performances for Chelsea and Brazil back then, he could have easily gone on to play for any big European club. His move cost him both his fans, as well as a place in the Brazilian national team. He was conspicuous by his absence at the 2018 World Cup. If we could assign a price to this, it is 21.5 million pounds! 8. Alexis Sanchez (450,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Alexis joined Manchester United from fellow league rivals Arsenal in the January transfer window in exchange for Armenian winger Mkhitaryan. He's a proven talent in the Premier League, scoring and assisting in double digits during the 2 seasons before this one. He earns about 450,000 pounds per week, which is about 23.5 million pounds a year. 9. Neymar (600,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Believe it or not, PSG are reported paying weekly wages of 600,000 pounds for Neymar's goals. And it seems like their monetary incentive is paying off. Neymar has scored 24 goals and provided 14 assists in just 23 games. He may not earn the Ballon d'Or this year but is earning 31.7-million-pounds a year. 10. Lionel Messi (770,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Arguably the greatest player on Earth, Lionel Messi earns 770,000 pounds per week. While his wage figures have often been criticized, one can never put a price to the invaluable dribbles, through balls, and moments of magic that he produces. The Barcelona talisman makes about £40.5 million annually.
  13. We loved 'Cool Uncle' Professor Sanjeev Srivastava's perfect dance moves at a wedding in India. Fondly called 'Dancing Uncle', he owned the stage and became a viral sensation in no time. His dancing skills were so on point even Govinda himself couldn't stop himself from sharing the stage with him. Just when we thought there could be nothing else better than this, a video of a young man dancing at a supermarket surfaced. The young rather good-looking dude did an impromptu gig to the popular song 'Long Lachi' and boy, he made heads turn. His thumka game is even better than women, if we can say so. The guy is called Mehroz Baig and is from Karachi, Pakistan. As he dances in front of a cheering crowd at the hypermarket, an elderly gentleman is so impressed with his moves he decides to join in. Seriously, this guy's dancing game is so on point he can give professional dancers a run for their money. There is so much talent in the common man, we tell you. Looks like we have a successor to 'Cool Uncle' Professor Sanjeev Srivastava.
