  1. There exists a specific set of skills which is required to be mastered by one to actually qualify as a true basketball enthusiast. You need to know the game in and out, be it Russell Westbrook's extremely jazzy jackets or Gerald Green's new 'Spiderman' hairdo. You've got to get in sync with the league's culture. Next, you must practice the essentials of playing the game. In order to shoot that hoop like 'Black Mamba', Kobe Bryant or move around the court like 'The Flash', Dwyane Wade, you must work on your craft. And finally, and probably the most important criterion of the all (are you ready for this?)... Have fun and enjoy the sport while doing all of the above! Basketball is all about fast-paced action which is a unique blend of brute force and finesse, at the epitome of which, is the National Basketball Association or the NBA. The NBA has never been more popular in India, expanding exponentially through cities and towns alike. The league has led to making LeBron James, Stephen Curry and James Harden some of the biggest household names in recent times. Indian fans are not only getting up early in the morning, sometimes, even before the sun is out, to watch their idols compete against each other, but also seem be to extremely interested in getting to know more about them, their lifestyle on and off the court, their history with the league and even their nicknames! But the guys at NBA India expect more from the Indian loyalists and see a lot of potential here. They believe that all the knowledge the league fans have garnered through days and months, should not go to waste. As a means to provide an opportunity to the basketball fans from all over the country to prove their loyalty to the game, a new all-NBA show, Jabong Hoop Wars, is coming to India. Hosted by the absolutely stunning Benafsha Soonawalla, Jabong Hoop Wars will see some of the most influential online celebrities like Nidhi Singh, Shantanu Maheshwari, Priyank Sharma, Aly Goni, Karishma Sharma and Prince Narula make special appearances in every episode. The show is all about churning out the best fans from the lot that the Indian audience has grown to become. If you have what it takes to be called a true basketball enthusiast who has the skills and the knowledge about the league and the sporting culture that revolves around it, Jabong Hoops Wars is meant for you. Great athletes like Lebron James and Kevin Durant had to go through so much of grit and grind and all the challenges put in front of them before actually being worthy of achieving the greatest glory of them all, the NBA championship. Likewise, the show puts forward some of the most creatively thought-out challenges that bring out the best in the contestants by testing their knowledge and skills related to the game and all the fun that happens throughout the year around the NBA, and believe us when we say that the rewards are worth it. The NBA fans in India are no less dedicated to the sport than those anywhere else in the world. All they need is a platform to show their love, support and respect for the game and it seems that their search is finally over.
  2. My fitness journey started in April 2013. I remember the first and foremost challenge was convincing my mom. You know how Indian parents are - “You are too young to join a gym. Turn 18 first.” I literally had to beg for it. But this endeavor only lasted about 5 months, as I had to quit the gym for 'board exams'. I was an active kid, who loved playing football and basketball. However, I was chubby and in pursuit of excelling the exams, my health took a toll. I gained 14 Kg during the boards and my eating habits went from not so healthy to terrible. Physics, Chemistry and 5 McDonald burgers became my constant companion. As soon as the board exams ended, I re-joined a gym and embraced the grind. After working out for several months, I could not see much change in my physique. The trainers would simply tell me one thing- “dabba nahi lega toh body nahi banegi”. I tried to find a good trainer in many gyms but found no help. After 2 years I finally decided to buy a supplement stack from my trainer. One tub of whey protein, a box of BCAA & fat burners! To your surprise, nothing magical happened. I was frustrated but this was also a blessing in disguise. I began educating myself about training and nutrition from the internet. I realized my biggest mistakes were- training every muscle only once per week. P.S- As a natural, you should train them 2-3 times week. Next, I was unnecessarily trying to gulp boiled chicken, potatoes and daal, whereas all my body and yours as well, is concerned with nutrition, not how the food is cooked. Once I began tracking my macronutrients, my physique began changing drastically. I followed Jim Stoppani's training plan and got leaner. But I was not satisfied with mere aesthetics; I wanted to get strong, really strong. For this Yash Sharma was a very useful resource. And once I learned about progressive overload, I was able to take my strength and physique to a whole new level. I have been natural throughout so far. I have taken plenty of different supplements like L carnitine, Creatine, Whey Protein, pre-workout, and fat burners, but have never taken anabolic steroids. I believe in prioritizing the health inside more than the looks outside. It has been over 6 years since I began this journey of becoming the best version of myself. And believe me, it was not linear. I was misguided, got injured and had multiple plateaus, but every time I felt like quitting I would think “Just one more day”. And now when I look back, it seems I have made some progress. I currently train 7 days a week with a combination of bodybuilding, powerlifting, and calisthenic workouts. I am lean, strong and agile. My name is Sidhant Rai Sikand, and this is my story!
  3. Diljit Dosanjh and Badshah just appeared together on the latest episode of 'Koffee With Karan', and we can safely conclude that this has been one of the best episodes of the season. While we saw the lighthearted camaraderie between the rockstars, we also saw the savage competition between them when it came to the game rounds. © Hotstar One of the highlights of the episode was the fashion quiz, which we have never seen on KWK before. Honestly, we could tell that this episode had to do a lot with fashion as soon as Karan Johar started telling us about how he is absolutely committed to his airport looks, and that they are a big deal for him. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Dec 9, 2018 at 7:34am PST Karan packed a suitcase full of his personal clothes (a Louis Vuitton suitcase, of course, because nothing else will do), and pulled them out one by one, while testing both of their knowledge on high fashion brands. While Badshah started all guns blazing, Diljit caught up, quickly. © Hotstar © Hotstar The competition kept getting more fierce by minute, and one could see Diljit's focus getting steadier and steadier, till he started belting out the label names with a greater dedication than KJo chooses his airport looks with. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Star World (@starworldindia) on Dec 9, 2018 at 8:12am PST Ultimately, it was Diljit who came out victorious, without having to struggle a lot. © Hotstar While Badshah's 'wakhra swag' is definetly infectious, desi hypebeast Diljit just proved that his fashion knowledge is in an entirely different league. Kudos, Paaji!
  4. Fitness has been a popular industry in 2018. It has become lucrative to be a part of it, as people are endlessly spending their money on fitness products and services like coaching, supplements, personal training, etc. At the same time, charlatans have made quick profit as well, as their sole purpose is to mislead people and take their money. They go to extremes like launching a Ketogenic Whey Protein to injecting steroids in young kids who want to build some muscle or lose some fat. Like every cloud has a silver lining, there are still sensible, helpful, and smart people in the industry who genuinely want to help people out giving the right information. If you do not want to go down the rabbit hole of misinformation and potentially hurt yourself in the name of fitness, you need to follow these accounts today (in no particular order). 1. Martin MacDonald (@martinnutrition) View this post on Instagram Post Day 1 of L2 Fitness Summit gym session culminated in this epic dream team photo. â â Roll on Day 2 with Sohee kicking things off and me closing out the show! â â Can't wait! â â A post shared by Martin MacDonald (@martinnutrition) on Sep 30, 2018 at 5:05am PDT Martin is the founder and CEO of Mac Nutrition Uni, a one-year evidence-based nutrition course which has been endorsed by doctors and industry experts equally.

If you have not heard it yet, I would highly recommend you to do so. 2. James Smith (@jamessmithpt) View this post on Instagram Day 1 - White girl wasted at not one but two brunches. Fat lip and sore elbow from what I assume was play fighting on a giant inflatable flamingo at the first brunch. - Not even sure how but came home wearing the wrong flip flops, another day in fitness. - Today's agenda? Survive another brunch.

Spencer Nadolsky (@drnadolsky) View this post on Instagram Want to have a doc who can help you with your blood sugars, cholesterol, and blood pressure through lifestyle changes? I'm right here. Not only that but I'll actually have time to spend with you since I got out of the regular inefficient medical system. - Right now you go to your doctor and you get about 10 minutes with them. They tell you what you already know. You already know you need to eat better. You know you need to do more physical activity and you understand that your weight may be causing some of your issues. Problem is, the doc probably doesn't know how to help you and if they do, they don't even have enough time. - So here's the deal, @steadymd asked me a couple years ago to start taking patients via online to help with this madness. I've capped myself around 220 patients for about a year now but I'm opening it up to more (about 30 more). - How does it work? You pay 99 bucks a month and you get an initial hour long video consult with me. I have my license in most states now. Sorry rest of the world I don't have power elsewhere. - After the initial hour long consult where I get to know you, I can order labs and even medicines if you need refills (no controlled meds through the internet like adderall or testosterone sorry). You then have access to me via your phone or computer similar to text messaging. - We do not take insurance. This allows us to spend time on you without the insurance hassles. - How can I do physical exams? Technically I don't. I can do most things I need through talking to you and looking at labs but there are new cool gadgets I can recommend that allow me to listen to your heart and lungs better than if I were in the office with you. - Who is this for? This is perfect for those who have blood sugar/pressure/cholesterol issues along with hypothyroidism. Those tend to be the patients that love it most. I have gotten many patients off their sugar and pressure meds using lifestyle. - You will also have the option of adding on my amazing nutrition coach for an extra fee once you sign up. - I wouldn't sign up if you're healthy and don't have an extra $99 a month. - Ready to start? click link in bio to sign up A post shared by Spencer Nadolsky (@drnadolsky) on Nov 23, 2018 at 7:28am PST An obesity medicine physician by profession, Dr. Nadolsky has the necessary education and the experience to deal with issues related to weight and obesity.

  5. Looking at a well-built physique and thinking that the person is knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition is a wrong assumption. It's common for trainers with the biggest muscles to have the most numbers of clients on the floor. In the same way, people tend to listen to that fit Instagram model more than a person who might be 10 times more knowledgeable just because the Insta model is ripped (or Photoshop-ripped) 365 days a year. And this is wrong on so many levels! © YouTube Now, don't get me wrong here. Want to build bigger arms? Find the guy with the biggest arms in the gym and replicate his every trick, right? Nope, wrong! That's because you would be ignoring numerous factors that come into play here. From genetics, to training age, to nutrition, to exogenous assistance, the list here is endless. This is almost foolish to think that the random advice given by that buff dude in the gym is Holy Grail. © Pixabay It is true that dream physiques are the result of years or sometimes even decades of hard work, dedication, patience and consistency in the gym. But many of these so called 'natties' that you see in gyms or on the covers of fitness magazines are actually very, very gifted when it comes to genetics. Also in almost 99% of the cases, they are on steroids. And being enhanced means that no matter which technique they use, they will make progress and keep growing or keep getting shredded, which of course a natural guy like you won't. Confused? Think about it, tomorrow just because a bodybuilder claims that he developed huge arms by doing 1000 reps and eating frog legs, would you start doing the same? Just because a fit looking person says something and (tries to) sound knowledgeable and technical about fitness and nutrition, does not make it true automatically. In other words, someone who looks good does not necessarily have to be an expert in the field of training and nutrition. On the other hand, someone who is not the most ripped or the buffest dude can know a lot more about the art and science of training. Case in point is that of knowledgeable writers/speakers who often get criticized for not being big enough or ripped enough. All a good coach or trainer needs is to know things about fitness that you don't; stuff that was learned in class, through books, through personal experience, or by innovative genius. That person also needs to be passionate about teaching weight training or fitness and has academic qualifications which shows that the person has put in time and effort in learning the art and science of training and nutrition.

  8. Marilou Danley ? whose live-in boyfriend carried out a shooting rampage at a Las Vegas concert Sunday night ? is seen in this Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department photo released in Las Vegas, Nevada, US, October 2, 2017. Courtesy Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department/Handout via REUTERS LAS VEGAS: The girlfriend of the Las Vegas gunman who killed 58 people and himself in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history was questioned by the FBI on Wednesday and said she had no idea he was ?planning violence against anyone.? Marilou Danley, who returned late on Tuesday from a family visit to the Philippines and is regarded by investigators as a ?person of interest,? said through a lawyer that the carnage Stephen Paddock unleashed while she was abroad caught her completely unaware. ?He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen,? Danley, 62, said in a written statement read to reporters by her attorney in Los Angeles, where the FBI was questioning her. A Federal Bureau of Investigation official in Las Vegas, meanwhile, said no one has been taken into custody. But Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters he found it hard to believe that the arsenal of weapons, ammunition and explosives recovered by police in their investigation could have been assembled by Paddock completely on his own. ?You have to make an assumption that he had some help at some point,? Lombardo said at a news briefing. Lombardo said the attack was the obvious outcome of meticulous planning. ?What we know is that Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life, much of which will never be fully understood,? the sheriff said. Nearly 500 people were also injured when Paddock, 64, strafed an outdoor concert with gunfire on Sunday night from his 32nd-floor suite of the Mandalay Bay hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. He took his own life before police stormed his room, bringing the total death toll to 59. Police recovered nearly 50 firearms from three locations they searched, nearly half of them from the hotel suite. Twelve of the rifles there were fitted with so-called bump stocks, officials said, allowing the guns to be fired almost as though they were automatic weapons. In response to a question, Lombardo said investigators were examining the possibility Paddock?s purchase of more than 30 guns in October 2016 may have been precipitated by some triggering event in his life. He did not elaborate. If Paddock did have any accomplice, there remained no evidence as yet ?to indicate terrorism? in the shooting spree, said Aaron Rouse, FBI special agent in charge of the Las Vegas field office. Earlier in the day, US President Donald Trump visited Las Vegas, marking the first time since taking office that he has had to confront a major mass shooting. ?Caring, quiet man? In her statement after being questioned in Los Angeles, Paddock?s girlfriend Danley insisted she knew Paddock as ?a kind, caring, quiet man.? ?It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone.? Her lawyer, Matt Lombard, said Danley was ?fully cooperating? with the investigation. Danley, an Australian citizen of Filipino heritage, said she flew back to the United States voluntarily ?because I know that the FBI and Las Vegas Police Department wanted to talk to me, and I wanted to talk to them.? Danley, who was twice married before her relationship with Paddock, became a focus of the investigation for having shared his retirement community condo in Mesquite, Nevada, northeast of Las Vegas, before leaving the United States for the Philippines in mid-September. FBI agents met her plane at Los Angeles International Airport before interviewing her, two US officials briefed on the case told Reuters. As of midday Wednesday, there was no indication she was aware of Paddock?s plans, they said. Investigators questioned her about Paddock?s weapons purchases, a $100,000 wire transfer to a Philippine bank that appeared to be intended for her, and whether she saw any changes in his behavior before she left the United States. ?Assuming she had no role in his actions, the most important thing is any light she can shed on Paddock?s motive,? said one official, who spoke about the investigation on condition of anonymity. Danley said Paddock had bought her an airline ticket to visit her family and wired her money to purchase property there, leading her to worry he might be planning to break up with her. Paddock?s brother Eric told reporters the $100,000 transfer was evidence that ?Steve took care of the people he loved,? and that he likely wanted to protect Danley by sending her overseas before the attack. She arrived in Manila on Sept. 15, flew to Hong Kong on Sept. 22, returned to Manila on Sept. 25 and was there until she flew to Los Angeles on Tuesday night, according to a Philippine immigration official. Discerning Paddock?s motive has proven especially baffling given the absence of the indicators typical in other mass shootings. He had no criminal record, no known history of mental illness and no outward signs of social disaffection, political discontent or extremist ideology, police said. Trump, touring a hospital in Las Vegas, told reporters Paddock was ?very demented,? and he asked Lombardo if investigators were any closer to establishing a motive. ?We?ve had a couple good leads and we?re working our way through it,? Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told the president.
  9. Pro basketball superstar Kevin Durant recently visited India, and apparently experienced a lot of culture shock. He ended up making some critical (and ridiculous) comments about the country in an interview with sports website The Athletic. The website quotes Durant as saying, “It's a country that's 20 years behind in terms of knowledge and experience. You see cows in the street, monkeys running around everywhere, hundreds of people on the side of the road, a million cars and no traffic violations. Just a bunch of underprivileged people there and they want to learn how to play basketball. That s— was really, really dope to me.” © AP He further went on to describe the conditions of the area near Taj Mahal. He said he was expecting a “holy ground, super protected, very, very clean.” But instead, he saw “mud in the middle of the street.” © AP Like if that wasn't enough, he further added, “houses were not finished but there were people living in them. No doors. No windows ... stray dogs and then, boom, Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world.” © Twitter Obviously, this angered a lot of people. Actress and writer Chhaya Nene wrote an “open letter” addressing his comments, which was published by the American Bazaar. She wrote, “Maybe you need to be educated on a place you deemed ‘rough' and ‘20 years behind.” Although many Indians actually agreed with Durant, but Nene wasn't one of them. She went on to list the following points: - The Indian subcontinent was home to the Indus Valley civilization which has been around since the 3rd millennium B.C. America became a nation in 1776. - There are over 1.2 billion people in India. America has just over 324 million. - India has the most populous democracy in the world. After receiving a lot of backlash and undeservedly so, Durant realized maybe what he said wasn't right and took to Twitter to apologise. pic.twitter.com/g54w3TtAoH — Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) August 11, 2017 Well, seems like Chhaya Nene wasn't that impressed. But then again, she does live a privileged life as well so it's like the pot calling the kettle black. The apology is nice but yeah, comments were ridiculous. You live a very privledged life. You visited a place with 1 billion ppl. @KDTrey5 https://t.co/5Lvd1MY4GZ — Chhaya Néné (@ChhayaNene) August 11, 2017 Durant also said that disrespecting India was never his intention and he plans to return soon to run more Basketball camps for the youth. While he was in the country, Durant helped set a Guinness World Record for the world's largest basketball clinic, with more than 3,400 Indian youths taking part.
  10. High school athletes with access to a certified athletic trainer are more knowledgeable about concussions and their consequences, but that doesn’t make them more likely to report a concussion, a US study finds. “The underreporting of concussions is estimated to be high, and the No. 1 reason athletes do not report a concussion is because they do not want to lose playing time,” lead study author Jessica Wallace of Youngstown State University in Ohio said by email. Although experts estimate that athletic trainers are present in 86 percent of US high schools, only about 37 percent of high schools employ one full-time. In high schools with no athletic trainer, athletes are five times more likely to not report concussion symptoms because they didn’t know they had a concussion, Wallace told Reuters Health. Sports-related concussions account for about 4 percent to 9 percent of high school injuries and have symptoms such as headaches, confusion, nausea, amnesia and trouble sleeping. “This study sheds light on the multiple reasons why student-athletes may not report a concussion, including not thinking the injury was serious enough to require medical attention or not wanting to let the team down,” Wallace said. She and her colleagues surveyed 715 student athletes ages 13 to 19, including 438 students who had access to an athletic trainer. Athletes answered 83 questions about their own concussion history, concussion knowledge, responses in specific scenarios, signs and symptoms of a concussion and reasons why an athlete would not report a concussion. Overall, 55 percent of high school athletes underreported concussions. Eighty-seven percent of athletes from schools without athletic trainers understood the dangers of concussions, as compared to 94 percent from the schools with athletic trainers. Similarly, 61 percent of athletes from schools without athletic trainers understood the signs and symptoms of a concussion, compared to 78 percent from the schools with athletic trainers. Overall, in the schools without athletic trainers, 16 percent more athletes thought they could continue playing if they believed they had a concussion and 12 percent more athletes thought they could continue playing with concussion symptoms. This knowledge gap is prominent and should be addressed, the study authors write in a special concussion-themed issue of the Journal of Athletic Training. “The athletic trainer serves a vital role in the health and safety of high-school athletes,” Wallace said. “One of the athletic trainer’s responsibilities is to help educate athletes, coaches and parents about concussions that appear to be happening within high schools.” At the same time, access to an athletic trainer wasn’t linked to a higher proportion of concussions being reported, the study found. In the survey, about 46 percent of the students said they had experienced a potential concussion during play and only 21 percent had reported it to an authority figure at the time. About 19 percent of these incidents were reported in schools without athletic trainers, compared to 25 percent in schools with athletic trainers, a difference too small to rule out the possibility it was due to chance. “This multifaceted issue includes many reasons why students may choose not to disclose an injury, including knowledge, intention and attitude,” said Johna Register-Mihalik of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who developed the concussion survey used in the current study but was not part of the study team.One limitation of the study is that the students came from 14 schools in two Michigan metro areas and participated in football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, gymnastics, soccer or cheerleading, which may limit how broadly the results can be generalized, the authors note. The Michigan students received state-mandated concussion education based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention HEADS UP program. Wallace and colleagues recommend that this or a similar education program be used to target schools without an athletic trainer in order to talk about the signs, symptoms and dangers of concussion. “Improving concussion protocol will extend into other issues with student athletes, such as lack of mental health disclosure and allowing play when athletes are injured or sick,” Register-Mihalik said. “Involving parents, coaches and students can create a safe playing environment.”
  11. Once upon a time all feelings and emotions went to a coastal island for a vacation.According to their nature, Each was having a good time. Suddenly a warning of an impending storm was announced and everyone was advised to evacuate the island... The announcement caused sudden panic ...All rushed to their boats Yet love did not wish to flee quickly..there was so much to do . But as the clouds darkened, Love realises it was time to leave. Alas!! There was no boats to spare.,,,, Love looked around with hope.. Just then prosperity passed by in a luxurious boat. Love shouted,,, ''Prosperity'' could you please take me in ur boat??? Prosperity replied... No..my boat is full of precious possessions,gold ( gold fish nh ) and silver. There is no place for u. Sorrow passed by after some time...Again love asked for help.. but is was to no avail... ''No, I can not take u with me. I am so sad. I want to be by myself.'' When happiness passed by a few minutes later..Love again called for help. But happiness was so happy that it didn't look around,, hardly concerned about everyone. Love was growing restless and dejected ( phr v aram nh lga jnab nu)..... Just then somebody called out..''Come love, I will take you with me'' Becare ko smjh hi nh ai kon pagal itna rehmdil hy :D..becara thokrain khany k bad beth gaya boat men ... On getting off the boat,,Love met knowledge. Puzzled love inquired,,, '' knowledge,,do u knw who so generously gave me a lift just when no one else wished to help.???'' Knowledge smiled.. ''Oh ,that was time" '' And why would time stop to pick me and take me to safety??'''..love wondered. Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and replied. ''Bcz only time knws ur true greatness and what u r capable of. Only love can bring peace and great happiness in the world'' The important message is that when we r prosperous, we over look love. When we feel important, we forget love. Even in happiness and sorrow we forget love. Only with time do we realize the importance of love. Why wait that long..??? Why not make love a part of ur life today..????
