  1. When I was in school, running sprints was what made me happy. Although sports was an integral part of my school days, I used to have breathing problems constantly. But when I finished my college and started earning, I started eating junk and drinking alcohol like there was no tomorrow. I thought this is what every working professional does and earns for. Work hard for 5 days and party harder over the weekend. I had stopped any possible physical activity in my routine. Realization It all started when my pot belly was made fun of, at a party with my friends. All of that made me notice a big bump coming out of my T-shirt. There comes a point in your life when some incident or a moment hits you hard and you decide to change your life for the good. This was exactly that moment for me! Initial Uneducated Strategies My initial goal was to merely lose body weight and look good in all my clothes. As guided by everyone, I started hitting the treadmill after my work for 45 minutes. Although some weight was lost within 2 months of cardio, I used to get exhausted after my cardio sessions. This was all due to my limited level of recovery and more fatigue. After years of looking like a large potato, now I resembled a small potato. Every newbie wants bigger biceps when they join the gym. Likewise, this was my wish too. Following that desire, I started doing cardio, bicep curls (pathetic form combined with weights) and hundreds of crunches daily. Nothing worked out. I looked the same. I had consumed almost every supplement available in the market by the time I was a year into training. A New Era After a while, I started reading some articles and watching YouTube videos in the hope to better my situation. This made me aware of the correct way of performing exercises and the foods to eat in order to lose fat and build muscle. Hiring coaches made me learn more about the importance of calorie counting, macronutrients and micronutrients. After the education and awareness, I started bulking with a surplus of 300-500 calories over my maintenance and gained some size with unavoidable body fat. The bulking continued for almost 10 months followed by cutting, where I was eating around 1600-1800 calories. This approach of calorie counting brought results in no time. It felt encouraging when I could see muscle definition and separations all over the body. I saw abs on me for the first time in my life. Though I got criticized by the people in my circle about me looking unhealthy, they weren't aware of the fact that losing weight brings a lot of health markers back to baseline levels. This means fewer diseases! My friends had never seen me looking so much in shape before. However, I was really happy with my physique when the measurement of Body Fat showed 11%. I had come a long way down the line as I started from 35 % body fat! My Advice To Those Struggling There is one thing I want to tell people who are ready to start their fitness journey. This shit takes time. You learn a lot of things on this journey and eventually, you become a better version of yourself- Every week, every month, every year. So, stays aligned and never give up! Hang in there, you will make it. PAKKA!

  4. A man took a serious tumble in the middle of the night and his life may have been saved thanks to the Apple Watch. Toralv Østvang, a 67-year-old Norwegian man got up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and fainted. The Apple Watch detected his fall and alerted emergency services. © Apple The Apple Watch series 4 has been known to save lives in the past thanks to numerous features such as heart rate monitoring, the new ECG app that can detect heart diseases and now the fall detect feature has been credited. The fall detecting feature works when a user falls and is unresponsive for 1 minute. The smartwatch will then automatically alert emergency services so that the user can be rescued. The police found Østvang bleeding on the bathroom floor with three fractures to his face. © Apple His daughter gives credit to the Apple Watch for saving his life, telling NRK: : "It could have gone so much worse. All morning we asked 'What had happened if he hadn't worn a smart watch?' He didn't bring his mobile phone in the bathroom. It's amazing that he got so quick help from the alarm, until the police found him. It was a serious fall..." © MensXP - Akshay Bhalla This is not the first time the Apple Watch has managed to save a life and there have been numerous instances in the past. You can read about different instances where the Apple Watch has saved lives by detecting diseases and even car crashes. You can read about 5 times the Apple Watch saved someone's life here.
  5. When life becomes dull, it's not easy to find your spunk and fight back. In order to succeed in life, one has to make it fun, positive, and full of motivation! If you find your life boring and unmotivated, you simply won't be able to make any progress. There are many reasons why you might not be feeling any enthusiasm in your life. And there are even more ways to overcome it. Following are 4 such reasons why you might not be feeling motivated and ways to overcome it: 1. Lack Of Purpose It's very important to have a goal, to have a purpose in life. Following it keeps you sane and sorted. If you don't have a purpose, you won't find any reason to move forward in life. Set a goal, fix a target! When you wake up, you should have a goal in your head, and if you are able to successfully create one, you'll be automatically motivated to achieve it. 2. Procrastination This is the worst thing you can do to yourself. When you start postponing your affairs & chores, your mind adapts to procrastination. You won't be doing any work on time and would always feel too tired and lethargic to do so. Procrastination kills the motivation to do anything. Luckily, it's not difficult to come out of this state. Remember two things – 'the 5-minute rule' & 'schedule'. Apply the 5-minute rule in your life. Whatever task can be done under 5 minutes, don't postpone it. Do it as soon as it comes to your mind. You will see a big change in your life by applying this small rule. Small chores will be done, your mind will be happy after completing a task, and slowly, it will start to procrastinate the procrastination. Next is, schedule. Fix a schedule and strictly follow it. Decide at what time you're going to wake up, have breakfast, leave for the office, and every other thing in your everyday life. Give some time for light exercise. Sticking to a schedule would make you punctual, as you would be completing all the tasks within the deadline and this would eventually push you to aim for higher goals. 3. Lack of Money Believe it or not but lack of money can also be de-motivating. If you have gotten accustomed to a lower salary or lower returns, then you won't need the feel to work hard. You would trick yourself into thinking that two square meals & a roof above your head are good enough for you. If that has happened to you, you should become a little materialistic. Set your eye on something, something out of your budget. Convince yourself that you should buy it. You'll see yourself wanting to work harder to be able to buy it. And you would have it eventually. When that happens and you get your motivation back, work smart. Set another milestone, and in your free time, look for other sources to earn. Pick a hobby and try to turn into a profession. You would not only be enjoying your time but would be utilizing it in the most perfect way. A little extra cash would be great for your savings account or for the latest Play Station. Leave the TV Shows and booze for the weekend. On weekdays, focus on improving your income. It is not that hard to find a hobby and become good enough in it that it starts paying you. You just need to be determined. 4. Social Circle Your social circle makes a huge impact on your life. If you surround yourself with positive & happy people, you would also feel happy and motivated. However, if your friends and colleagues are unmotivated and have negative opinions on everything, then this would impact you on a great level. Their constant criticism of the world would make you look at the world the same way. You would start finding fault in everything which would give your brain a great excuse to become slothful. This is when your motivation to do anything would die and you would just spend your time doing nothing. If this is happening to you, you need to get out of such a company. Join some activities like trekking, or dance classes, or yoga classes, basically anything which would help you meet new people. This change will bring a positive impact on your life as you would not only be interacting with new people but will also be joining an activity. This will bring back the motivation you need in your life. Now that we have told you every major reason why you might be becoming an always tired – demotivated person, you should start doing the aforementioned things to achieve greatness in life. Everyone can be a hero, you just need to fight your battle and come as a winner! May the force be with you!
  6. #LivingItTheWrongWay Why do we feel the constant need to show everyone how 'perfect' our life is? What has happened to the good old concept of “keeping it private?” Why does every great night become our Instagram story? And the nights which are not-so-great, why do we need to make them perfect by using filters? Social media has become the platform which feeds our ego. From morning coffee to evening whiskey, we post every detail like Jack Daniel's would taste like Royal Stag if we don't post its picture online. I get it, once in a while, it's good to let your friends and closed ones know that you're enjoying your life in the way you want. But haven't we gone overboard with it? Posting gym selfies and 'cheers' boomerangs every day have apparently become the new 'in'. We have become so hollow that we need constant validation from our followers to know that we're living a good life! Social media now is a race of likes and shares. It has become a stage where people compete silently about who's living a better life. Envy, jealousy, superficial intellect, and all such things are the product of misuse of social media and are everything that is wrong with our generation. Can you remember the last time you just sat with your friends, had a good time, and didn't post it on the internet? Can't we be happy offline anymore? It might be okay to use social media as a travel journal or to post the highlights of our life. It sure creates memories. But posting fake candid and airport check-ins reflect how attention starving we have become! The world is now an “if you didn't post it, it didn't happen” kind of a thing. It was quite ironic when people who post every minute detail of their life blamed Mark Zuckerberg for invading their privacy. Sure, there is also good stuff out there on the social media platforms. Motivational videos, funny memes, poetry, proses, and every such thing for which social media should be used. But somehow, we have made it just about ourselves. And it has come to a point where it is becoming annoying. Annoying because we think showing off a Starbucks coffee cup and MacBook in one frame is cool. Maybe, once in a blue moon, it is. That too, if you're an amazingly good photographer. But posting it every Monday with the hashtag #mondayblues is most definitely annoying. Can't we try and make our life a little private? Every good evening doesn't need to be posted. Every good moment doesn't need to be clicked. Every relationship doesn't need a #TwoMonthAnniversary hashtag. Live for yourself, not for your followers, and most certainly not for your virtual ego. Life becomes better when you involve fewer people in it!
  7. Akshay and Twinkle are known for their funny and optimistic opinions all over social media and it's fun and encouraging to read through them from time to time. Recently Akshay re-tweeted a small video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, where Modi was having an interactive session for students appearing in the board and other entrance examinations, telling them that there's more to life than just exams! © Twitter He was motivating students through an interactive session called Pariksha Pe Charcha 2.0. and Akshay Kumar could thoroughly relate to the video and what PM Modi was saying, and he shared it on his Twitter handle. The video was captioned as: "Something I related to... I was never good at academics but with God's grace, my parents' blessings and hard work, I think I managed pretty well. With exams around the corner, I would like to reiterate to students and parents, there is more to life than just exams." Something I related to...I was never good at academics but with God's grace, my parents blessings & hard work, I think I managed pretty well. With exams around the corner, I'd like to reiterate to students & parents,there's more to life than just exams.https://t.co/olZ0Bi1M6q — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) 30 January 2019 I think this is a great example to set for the younger generation today, who are stressed beyond belief about the pressure that academics puts on them. If they have pertinent role models like politicians and celebrities reiterating the fact that academics and examinations aren't the only things that determine what life really is all about, then the impact is a lot heavier and students may find some relief reading these words from the people they look up to, in stressful times. © Pinterest Akshay too clearly reiterated PM Modi's stance on examinations and how they shouldn't build fear amidst students, and gave an example from his own life, where he wasn't good at academics but that didn't deter his path to achieve what he truly wanted too. I bet the students will find some relief and gratitude upon reading the national award-winning actor's words. © Twitter On the work front, we'd just like to say we love watching Akshay Kumar play a cop (and he has numerous times) and he's coming back as one once again, in Rohit Shetty's 'Sooryavanshi'. While Rohit is still deciding who the leading lady for the film might be, we already know Akshay is playing the lead of the ATS (anti-terrorist squad), in this drama-packed action feature. The shoot will start around April for this one after he's wrapped up two other projects- 'Good News' and 'Mission Mangal'. © Twitter Earlier, there was a row of rumours claiming Shetty's 'Sooryavanshi' is a remake of the Tamil movie 'Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru' and that he's bought the rights to the film too, but the 'Simmba' director dismissed these rumours and said that 'Sooryavanshi' is an original film. Well, that's to be seen in time, we suppose. For now let's just take some motivation from what Akshay has re-tweeted, in the wake of examinations looming upon millions of students.
  8. Looking back, I remember, I led a very unhealthy lifestyle and had ballooned up to an alarming 100kgs. This was the number one reason why I started to work out and going to the gym, as I was apprehensive about what could happen to me, health-wise. Making a drastic change in my lifestyle and eating habits, when everyone around me was partying and eating junk, was a big U-turn for me. But now, I am glad that I did it. When I started working out, I was told a lot of misleading things. "Don't eat this, take this supplement, eat fat burners, and purchase a mass gainer" and what not. A lot of wrong info came my way without any filter, which led me to be utterly confused and not knowing where to begin. Then came a turning point in my life, as I joined Get Set Go and decide to train under the guidance of coach and co-founder Pratik Thakkar. He helped me in achieving the kind of body I wanted for the past 7 years. He got me there in 6 months and that too, without any useless supplements. He worked on my diet and workout plans and I dedicatedly followed through. Eventually, I got in such good shape that people thought that I was on steroids. The only supplements used through my journey were Whey and Creatine Monohydrate. My training was everywhere. I was doing bro-splits and working out almost every day. This led to poor recovery and poor muscle growth. Pratik then flipped my training around and focused more on recovery and drove me away from the bro-split. My training mostly comprised of push-pull and legs and arms. In time, my volume dropped as well and I was not doing a million reps now either. This brought about the biggest change in my physique. I am now stronger than when I started, my form is way much better and I train intelligently. I don't feel beat up and swiftly get through my schedule. Fitness is about striking a good balance between diet, training and your lifestyle. Be regular, don't cheat and most importantly, get a coach to take care of things that you most certainly can't.
  9. If I look back into time, I remember being a chronic alcoholic. Right from diabetes to thyroid and to high blood pressure, I had everything. Even low testosterone was a huge problem. The doctor told me if I don't change my lifestyle I will never be able to start a family. Sure, addiction to food is a real thing but let me tell you that addiction to alcohol will ruin your life. This is exactly what happened with me. This is how I came out of alcoholism and reclaimed my life back. How I Ate Before anything, let me make it very clear that diet is the first step. I counted my calories, keeping the protein high (150 -250 grams), low fat (50 Grams) and least carbs diet. I reefed myself to keep away from binge eating. What I realized are the rules that apply to staying sober and quitting alcoholism also fit perfectly with weight loss and clean diet. Cutting Alcohol Was A BIG Task Now I was pretty much sorted with my diet. Next step was something that would completely change my life—quitting alcohol. This was harrowing for me to start with. I used to drink regularly. Now I had to stop. But here again, I didn't take any leaps. I took one step at a time. It was tough but I didn't give up. So What Did I Learn? One Day At Time First Apply this motto - When you wake up in morning say this- I WILL FOLLOW MY DIET TODAY NO MATTER WHAT. Don't think about tomorrow or day after, do justice to your diet today. Take it one day at a time. These are certain things I fixed about myself. 1. Serenity Of The Mind Either you are quitting alcohol or trying to be disciplined with dieting in your life. The serenity of the mind is most important. If your mind is not at peace then you cannot concentrate on anything which includes having right meals. So if you want to lose weight or improve your health, then the most important thing is the serenity of your mind. 2. Hardcore Honesty First step is about understanding your problem areas. It can be alcohol or eating junk food. To identify this, you have to be completely honest about it. Don't lie to yourself. If you are fat, you are fat. My alcoholism was killing me but I would tell myself that I will quit it soon. This hardly ever happened though till the time I was warned. 3. Become Selfish If you are not selfish, then you stop caring about what is best for you. If you are selfish you consider your health, your life and your progress before anything else. If you are selfish about your body then you do what is best for it. Most importantly, be selfish about your serenity. How Far I Have Come After years of hard work, now I stand completely sober. I literally came out of the claws of death to becoming one of the hardest workers in the gym and in the kitchen too. To do this, I didn't look at any shortcuts. I believed in myself, ate a structured diet and worked an intelligent training program that was the best for me. If you are also going through addiction, trust me, the solution is right inside you. Find it before it's too late.
  10. When Odisha based tea-seller Devarapalli Prakash Rao took it upon himself to change the lives of young kids by providing for the education of children of daily wage workers and rickshaw pullers besides many other slum children, by setting aside half of his monthly earnings for the purpose, never once did he imagine to find himself in the company of our Prime Minister, who would be all praise for the man, owing to his distinguished efforts in the field of affordable education in the country. So, when the Ministry of Home Affairs announced the list of Padma Awards for 2019, Devarapalli was in for a sweet surprise, since his name was listed amongst the 94 names that had been shortlisted for the Padma Shri award this year. © Twitter 59-year-old Devarapalli Prakash Rao has been spending a substantial part of his life and earnings for the betterment of a section of our society, which is unfortunately ignored otherwise. For the last 18 years, Rao has been educating slum children by paying for their education from his own pockets. But before setting this aside as “nothing too special”, we would like you to recall that Cuttack-based Rao, is a roadside tea-seller, who survives on a humble, daily earning. So, on Sunday when Prime Minister Narendra Modi couldn't stop gushing about all the wonderful things Rao has done, in his 44th edition of 'Mann Ki Baat', Devarapalli's life kind of came a full circle. Hailing Rao as the “guardian angel” of underprivileged kids, PM Modi shared how delighted he had been to meet Rao, who has been donating half of his daily earnings for the education and food for over 70 kids, over a span of 18 years, and changing the lives of innumerable children. © Twitter However, Rao's journey hasn't been an easy one. A school drop out himself, he set up 'Asha O Ashwasana' school in 2000. His motivation came from the discord he felt when he saw young kids in his neighbourhood giving in to the temptations of petty crimes and intoxication that alcohol promised. So, while Rao's father never bothered to take care of his education, Rao decided to do the needful for these young kids. After a lot of struggle, he managed to convince parents to send their children to his school, since most of these families couldn't afford to part with a working member, thereby giving up on a pair of hands that could earn. Today, with classes up to 3rd standard, Rao takes care of these kids' uniforms and books, besides a small midday meal that comprises of milk and biscuits. © Twitter Rao's story is one that tugs at our dormant conscience, reminding us that every small act of thoughtfulness counts, that every little effort could touch hundreds of lives and make them better if only we can spare the thought, time and resources to look beyond our personal challenges. Why? Because like D. Prakash Rao, happiness and contentment can be found in furthering and building others dreams and lives when our own becomes too much of a work to carry on with. Because didn't Albert Einstein once say that, “a life lived for others, is a life worthwhile” and Rao seems to have proved it true, through and through. Kudos to the man! © Twitter
  11. The leopard print has an undeniably important niche in world fashion, and some would argue, that it's been overdone. In fact, memes like 'Guess who's the only one who can carry off the leopard print without looking stupid? A leopard' has been doing the rounds for the longest time. Some love it, some loathe its existence. Of late, designers all over have been trying to go a little easy on the print, unless they are into hardcore maximalism. No wonder we haven't had a lot of it in men's fashion for the longest time. However, who's the one person you'd trust to bring back a dead aesthetic, other than the quirky tiger of fashion himself? Ranveer Singh did not cut corners while reviving it, and went for it full on, just like one would expect him to. He wore a head-to-toe leopard print outfit at Umang 2019. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Designed by Varoin Marwah, this killer ensemble is fierceness personified. While the blazer and the pants encapsulate the smaller dots, the shirt is composed of the layered brown spots found on a full-grown leopard. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani There was no holding back on Ranveer's part even in terms of footwear or accessories. He went for a pair of gutsy gold boots, and statement eyewear that complements the feline aesthetic. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani There's no holding back this tiger. Keep roaring, Baba!
  12. The OnePlus 6T has been facing a battery drain issue reported by users on Reddit which is causing the battery life to cut by half. The OnePlus 6T increased the battery capacity to 3,700 mAh as compared to the smaller 3,000 mAh battery on its predecessor. However, there's a new bug that is affecting the OP6T to face an unexpected bug. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla According to users on Reddit, the battery life has been cut in half and the users tried to clear background apps, cache memory and had the latest firmware installed. Having said that, users were not able to identify the cause of this battery drain. The only fix that has worked so far has been a factory reset. The Reddit post reads, “So for the past day or so my 6t's battery has suddenly started draining from 80 per cent extremely fast. If I had to guess I'd say my battery life was at least halved all of a sudden and I'm not even putting it through heavy workloads or anything.” © YouTube Other users have also pointed out that the battery drain is also causing the smartphone to heat up unexpectedly, even when on idle. OnePlus has not responded to the issue yet and haven't detailed if the company is working on a fix. OnePlus released a new OTA Android Pie update for the OnePlus 5 and 5T. The new update caused users of older devices to face Wi-FI connectivity problems, especially when using third-party apps. The problem was later fixed via an update. © OnePlus OnePlus 6T was launched in India for Rs 37,999 for the base 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor and 3,700 mAh battery.
  13. Two months ago, India lost a braveheart while fighting terrorists in the Shopian district of the Kashmir Valley and we're still sullen and absolutely gutted with grief losing such a heroic man. Lance Naik Nazir Ahmed Wani, a terrorist-turned soldier laid down his life in a gruesome encounter with terrorists and was buried with the utmost honour and respect in his own village-Chak Ashmuji in Jammu and Kashmir. He definitely brought a rare sense of honour to his little hamlet, surrounded by paddy fields and orchards, all around. But that's not all. Every soldier who fights a long and hard battle to protect us, while we sleep peacefully, needs a deserving accolade for his brave deeds and that's exactly what Wani received, with absolute honour. © Twitter India's highest peacetime gallantry medal, the Ashok Chakra, was posthumously awarded to Wani, for fighting fiercely and losing his life, a brief while after. Wani, an Ikhwan, was shot in a counter-terrorist operation in Shopian district two months ago, in which 6 terrorists were killed. An Ikhwan is someone in the state of Jammu & Kashmir who gives up militancy and takes a solid stand against it, while becoming absolutely pro-government and is a part of the counter-insurgency operations. When the news of his honour reached his village, no one reacted to it, no one shared any grief or happiness or even a condolence. Wani's family and the villagers didn't find anything spectacular about the award, as they believed these awards serve no purpose anymore. © Twitter “Nobody came, and why should they? When he was alive, we prayed for him to be safe at his place and us to be safe here. Now, when he is no more, what purpose will these awards serve?” Mushtaq, Wani's younger brother spoke to a popular publication. Unlike a few neighbouring villages around Wani's village, including Shopian, where Wani lost his life, his was very different and peaceful and the story shouldn't have been about the death of a soldier, who hailed from there. But because the village of Cheki Ashmuji was swaying towards pro-Azadi sentiments, its conversion to that of a militancy-stricken village, wasn't too far away. No one from the village actually joined militancy, but half a dozen of the men from the village are in the Army or Paramilitary Forces. © TOI Wani, whose family still resides in Cheki Ashmuji, had moved to a well-protected colony at Kulgam district headquarters after he joined the Ikhwan, almost two decades ago. A lot of militants, in fact, give up militancy in the early years and become Ikhwans to serve the Army and do away with terrorism. And that's what Wani believed in as well. His tryst with peace to his village and his nation grew bigger than the half baked purpose he was serving before. He was awarded the Sena medal in gallantry back in 2007 and a bar to the Sena medal in August this year and his death was a testimony of his bravado displayed in South Kashmir, where his battalion was attached with a unit of Rashtriya Rifles, which is a force especially put together to fight militancy in Jammu and Kashmir. © TOI President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday presented the Ashoka Chakra award to Wani's wife Mahajabeen and right after the award was given, an Army spokesperson described how Wani had fought till his last dying breath. “Under an intense hail of bullets from the terrorists, he eliminated the district commander of the LeT (Lashkar-e-Toiba) and one foreign terrorist in a daring display of raw courage. He took multiple hits, some to his head but injured another terrorist before falling. “He was a hero right from the beginning and always served (the cause of) peace (in Kashmir). His extraordinarily fearless and courageous persona was reflected in getting the Sena Medal for gallantry twice in 2007 and 2018" The Army official said. © Twitter Nazir Ahmed chose peace over violence and he fought for what was right, In fact, we learnt that Mahajabeen had fallen in love with exactly that quality of his and it was love at first sight for them, when the two met in school when they were just 15. A teacher and a mother of two, Mahajabeen said he always instilled a good value and belief system in her and his fierce love was enough motivation for her to cultivate young people to become good citizens for the country. © Twitter When he was set to receive the highest and most prestigious award for his martyrdom, she did not cry for his death. She was proud of the fact that he did something to set a brave example for the generation to come and for her, he was always her guiding light, her pillar of strength. "He had telephoned me the previous evening and enquired about our well-being. I had told him to take care of himself. But destiny had something else for him. He always wanted to make his 162/TA Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry battalion proud. For him, duty was supreme. He was a source of inspiration for people in our area and community," She told a popular news publication agency. © Twitter Lance Naik Nazir Ahmed Wani will always serve as an inspiration to the Armed Forces and youngsters growing up, learning and reading about jawans like him, who gave up militancy for the greater good. He always had the interest of the nation at heart and gave his all to protect his family, friends, subordinates and strangers. This Republic Day, let's remember more such heroes and be grateful that they're always there to protect us.
  14. Following the first leak of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 a few weeks ago, more images have surfaced of the flagship and details about the phone are slowly getting clearer. We're just a month away from the launch but now high-quality photos of the device have popped up online, thanks to the German blog AllAboutSamsung. We've seen numerous render leaks and the prototypes come very close to them. The bezels have been snipped even further and there are radical changes on the back as well as the front. Samsung was the only mainstream brand to not embrace the notch last year and it intends to continue the same for its flagship. © AllAboutSamsung Instead of a notch, Samsung is embedding a punch-hole camera on the front. The “Infinity-O” hole-punch display, as they're officially called, first showed up in Samsung's A8 phones, which were only released in China. What we are looking at here are the prototypes for the 6.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S10 and 6.4-inch Galaxy S10+ having a different punch-hole cut-out. The S10+ has a dual front-facing camera setup, while the S10 has a singular module. The back of the phone has a huge camera arrangement, with three lenses and LED flash and Samsung's typical PPG heart rate sensor. It's surprising that even the smaller S10 has three cameras, given that the S9+ has two cameras compared to the S9's single camera. It's possible Samsung could go with a dual camera setup on the S10 Lite variant. © AllAboutSamsung Lastly, the bottom of the phone has a USB-C charging port along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. This'll make Samsung among the few who still find space to house the ancient port and many users out there are going to be extremely happy about it. For now, we've seen the ceramic black and ceramic white colour options and rumours suggest we'll be seeing more options at launch. A few reports earlier in the week also mentioned the new phones will come with a Samsung Blockchain Keystore app. Ethereum has been listed as a supported cryptocurrency and it will have support for Bitcoin, Ethereum-derived token ERC20 and Bitcoin Cash as well at launch. © Twitter / VenyaGeskin1 The Galaxy S10 line will be unveiled in San Francisco on February 20th, which is less than a month away. There have also been leaks suggesting the price of the phones and Samsung is trying its level best to keep them consistent with last year's offerings. What are your thoughts on the initial design of the phone?
  15. Ever since joining the Reds from Roma in 2017, Mohamed Salah has become an integral part of Jurgen Klopp's rampant Liverpool brigade. Arriving at the Anfield for 50 million euros, the Egyptian footballer justified his price tag with a sensational run last season. With 30 goals to his name, Salah was awarded the Golden Boot and was eventually named PFA Players' Player of the Year in the 2017/18 season. Thanks to his dribbling skills, speed and ball control, Salah raked in goal after goal and played a crucial role in propelling Liverpool to the Champions League final last year. His goal-scoring might have come down a notch this season, but Salah continues to be a key ingredient in the Reds' charge for the title. ð @MoSalah in the @premierleague: ð 72 Games â½ 50 Goals A different class. ð pic.twitter.com/bdx4nomLkb — Liverpool FC (@LFC) January 20, 2019 But, for a man who is loved and cherished by Liverpool fans as much as he is back home in Egypt, Salah shocked everyone after going offline on the social media recently. The 26-year-old, who enjoys a great fan-following, appeared to have deleted all of his social media accounts where his followers numbered in the millions. The Egyptian's Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts went offline without warning a day after he posted a cryptic tweet. "2019 Resolution: Time to get in touch, for real," read the final tweet of the Premier League footballer which was later shared widely on the social media platforms. When people tried to go through his Twitter account, they could only see the message: "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!". On Instagram, it said: "The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed". The story was pretty much the same on Facebook. While it's still not clear whether the shutdowns were deliberate or not, and what exactly provoked the Liverpool forward to go offline. Some believe that Salah deleted his accounts owing to a dispute he has had with the Egyptian Football Association over his image rights. Others the footballer's trail and saw it as a possible New Year's resolution. But, despite all the speculation, Salah's sudden disappearance from the social media can also be looked upon as one of the best moves to raise awareness for the real-life communications. In the modern world, everything is digital - sharing information, knowledge and even building relationships. While it allowed us to reach larger masses, it also killed our need for human interactions - something Salah is probably trying to convey here. Irrespective of the reason, the latest antics of the Egyptian footballer undoubtedly left the fans baffled. Like it. Get away from social media and win a title. — Stephen Haw (@Ste_Haw) January 23, 2019 Excellent work and tough decision — saad lazrak (@saadoun039) January 23, 2019 Focusing on football only. Good lad. — Geo (@GeordySharpe) January 23, 2019 I can tell that he is concentrating on being in his best form again, which is what we really need. Salah is going to ruin teams now. This is what happens when you make fun of salah and call him a diver, he deletes his accounts and gets ready to destroy your team for fun. — bigi (@alove23355) January 23, 2019 Concentrating on Diving Classes more — Adarsh Mkv (@AdarshMkv) January 23, 2019
  16. While finding true love should definitely be your end goal, there are a few things you should set yourself up for, before you go looking for it. Having mighty real expectations is the key to finding the love you truly deserve and if you don't really know what you want to find, having some solid parameters before is quite valid. Because you never know when you may find love and what you may find in terms for love, but keeping some check-ins handy before you meet someone is always helpful. © Eros International In today's day and age, we all need something to keep us grounded and away from unreal expectations from our partners. Because if we come with a set of over-the-top expectations, we're bound to be disappointed at some point in time in life. If we have a summation of realistic expectations that can easily be met by the other person, then we're definitely going to attract a healthy relationship towards us. So, in lieu of the above, here are 3 things you must do, to give up on some unhealthy expectations you may have, to attract a happy and a stable relationship and a love that lasts long: (1) Have A Set Of Priorities By priorities, I mean segregate your expectations. Especially of what you really want from your future partner. Always remember though, high expectations are different from unreal expectations. High expectations as long as are achievable should not be shelved. They're made to fulfil your needs and standards after all. Just make sure that your high expectations aren't unreal. After all, if you're sorted and an established man, you want a woman on the same wavelength and there's nothing wrong with expecting that. © AA Films (2) Set Some Boundaries Always know what you will put up with and what you won't, so you don't take your self-esteem and respect the whole hog when it's not required to. Sometimes, unknowingly, we do things that are far away from our comfort zone and we really don't need to or have to do them. We do them in order to please the other person. While you most certainly can please them, you don't have to put your self-respect at stake for it. Try not to compromise on your core values in a relationship and have a set of boundaries marked down to the T. For instance, if you're averse to infidelity and you face something like that in the future, set a boundary to never normalise it in your head, just because your partner messes up or cheats on you. © Vicom 18 Motion Pictures (3) Lock Down On Your Needs & Wants Having your core values intact and realising what they are is very important before you meet anyone you want to spend the rest of your life with. Work with tangibles in this situation. For example, if you want children, work out your views on marriage and the kind of lifestyle you want to adapt to when you find the right person. It's important you work on what you need and want before you agree to settle down with someone. Having a conversation about the same with your future partner is healthy but that can only happen if you clearly understand what your needs and wants are and you need to know them way before and be certain about them. © Zee Studios The key is not to have everything in common with your future partner. The key is to lock down everything you want to set for yourself so you and she can have a smooth life together, even if you don't have much in common. If you respect each other's choices and live your life the way you want to, you can still make a great couple and have a healthy relationship. For that, these three pointers come in handy and if you do these three things before falling in love, you're definitely sorted for life!
  17. Given my passion for both writing and acting, I'm aware that every good movie has five essential elements – the characters, the setting, the conflict, the climax and finally the resolution. I recently got my hands on an Amazon Echo and it's made my life nothing short of a sci-fi drama film. The Character: A technologically-challenged guy like me is an exception in this Age of Connectivity. Blame my generation – I grew up in the 90s when the most advanced gadget out there was the Walkman. The Setting: Here I am now – introduced to the Amazon Echo. It's like my grandmother using a smartphone. Actually not really, because even she's better with technology than me. Every time I get a new gadget, my hands tremble. Technology has always made me nervous, really nervous. © MensXP/Rhea Dabas The Conflict: Being an actor, my days can be very hectic. Add to that my complete lack of organisational skills, and you have absolute madness, Monday to Friday. Trying to get the best of working hard and playing harder, balancing between multiple gadgets – life is really not that simple. The Climax: Alexa, Amazon's virtual assistant, comes in as a saviour with timely reminders, alarms and calendars. But what intrigued me the most, were the insanely cool Smart Home features that she supports. Through the Alexa app, I simply had to enable the specific skills for my smart devices, pair it with my Echo and just let Alexa take control (Frightening? Not really. Insanely cool? Most definitely). © MensXP The Resolution: Setting up my Smart Home with Alexa was as simple as – 'lights, camera, action.' Lights: If vegetating on weekends is your favourite hobby, Amazon Echo might just spoil you silly. If you have smart lights installed in your house, you could actually control them hands-free. Besides turning them on or off, you can even change the brightness or alter the colours too. It's time to replace those dingy, old LED tubes and go “Alexa, reduce brightness to 60%.” © MensXP Camera: For someone like me, who's used to the old-school life, this was futuristic. If you have the Echo Spot, you could even see live feeds from any Alexa-compatible camera. If not, Alexa on your phone also works Action: Imagine not having to wake up one hour in advance to switch on the damn geyser during cold January mornings just with some Smart Plugs. You can use the Oakter Smart Plug to switch on the geyser and with Smart Voice Remotes such as OakRemote or Broadlink, you don't even need to fumble around to control your AC or the TV. Ask, and Alexa shall deliver. The only problem here, though, is that Alexa is going to have a tough time deciding who to listen to – me or my mother. Alexa works on voice requests, and she is definitely a good listener. I say that because if with the TV blaring and the cacophony of the kitchen, she could hear me through all that chaos, she can definitely be a great host. © MensXP/Rhea Dabas As much as the little kid in me loves the feel of a new gadget, the adult in me is seeing himself becoming more efficient and organised with work and play. I suppose you could say that I lived happily ever after. The END…
  18. What's the best thing about moving on from a relationship? It's when you and your ex are in a damn good space and only give each other good vibes. Well, it's 2019 and exes are either up in arms about how it all ended or they move away too quickly from each other, not wanting to face any circumstantial dilemma that may come along. © Getty images But, not all exes are the same, are they? Some move away knowing things didn't work out for them even though they spent significant time together and they bow down in grace and wish each other well. Nope, I am not living in a utopic town, I am actually stating facts. © Getty Images As we all know, Jurassic World and Guardians Of The Galaxy superstar Chris Pratt has just asked Katherine Schwarzenegger to marry him and we're damn happy for them. But what makes us happier is the fact that Chris Pratt's ex-wife Anna Faris has wished them well, upon hearing the news about their engagement! This is the truest relationship evolution curve we know! © Getty Images Recently Chris posted a picture of Katherine and him together embracing, with the following caption '"Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I'm thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to go boldly in faith with you. Here we go!" Here, take a look Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I'm thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go! ðð♥ï¸ A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Jan 13, 2019 at 11:12pm PST And that wasn't all. Obviously Chris got almost 50k+ comments on this picture congratulating him but the one that stood out was from Anna Faris, wishing him happiness! She literally sounded way too happy for the forthcoming nuptials! Love to see it. #CommentsByCelebs A post shared by Comments By Celebs (@commentsbycelebs) on Jan 14, 2019 at 8:40am PST Now, I am not saying we're all monsters and we don't finish things and we walk away from associations. All I am saying is, we just like to move at the speed of light, even in our relationships and forget about them like they never happened.
  19. It seems as if the Australians are so flustered by their recent poor performance, that their reporters have begun to hope and pray for the Indians to retire so that Tim Paine's men have the time for a breather. What's India Captain @imVkohli's retirement plans? ððð #TeamIndia #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/xGxBOxMSdE — BCCI (@BCCI) January 11, 2019 Just hours before the three-game ODI series begins between India and Australia in Sydney, one reporter just happened to ask Indian captain, Virat Kohli about his retirement plans and whether the batsman is planning to play domestic or league cricket, once he departs from the international level. Kohli, with his caustic wit, immediately responded saying that he has played a lifetime worth of cricket in the past five years and once he hangs the gloves, he will be in no state to play anymore post that. The skipper believes that he will continue to represent his country until he is completely 'spent' and once that happens, he will completely vanish from the cricketing world. Obviously, the question did not go down well with the Indian fans who either got really angry or really emotional at the thought of the prodigy bidding adieu. This question is an exhibition of ausiss frustration :) — ANIL KUMAR N R (@anil0520) January 11, 2019 Wtfð Why that man is even asking for his retirement? He is just 29. Many more years he has to play. Many more records yet to break. Many more achievements India yet has to get. Yeh Journalists k pass retirement k alawa koi question nahi hota kya? ð — Aparna ð®ð³ (@Jayaa_IND) January 11, 2019 "I won't pick up my bat again" listening this from u is horrible for us @imVkohli ð¢ð — Just for ViRat (@riyaViratkohli) January 11, 2019 Cricket will be boring without Virat... I love everything about him as a cricketer ðð — Ùرحا٠حسÛÙ (@Faryfarhan) January 11, 2019 Retirement? Not so soon.yes,can retire from captaincy so that can concentrate on batting only to topple Sachin's record. Offcourse Sachin is all time great. And Rohit is better captain. — Musakalli Mulla (@musakallimulla) January 11, 2019 do not talk about retirement, you have to play a lot now. You still have to break a lot of records. It is a lot of people have to ignore you. ð­ — Mohd Sahil (@Mohd_Sahil9090) January 11, 2019 Ok kill me now. I'm hurt!!!!!! — Suprasanna Baruah (@SuprasannaBarua) January 11, 2019 Sometimes I feel these reporter's are totally nuts and their brains have gone for a walk.Asking a batsman who is mere 30 and at the peak of his batting prowess about retirement plan is total madness.. — Amit Dhiman (@Amit_Dhiman86) January 11, 2019 Noooooo....,,ðð£ð£ ,,,, Don't even think about, that reporter got brain fade,,,,,,, you're not done @imVkohli .U can play for 10 yrs more....upto 150 International centuries.......even time could change it's way for U.....ððð — Ayush Raghuwanshi (@AyushRag95) January 11, 2019 All jokes aside, while Kohli is evolving his game as he gains more and more experience, a comparable difference can be seen in his maturity as the head representative of his country and as the captain of his team. The way Kohli responded to the crucial question proves his awareness of the expectations attached to him and the responsibility he shoulders as the leader.
  20. The Apple Watch Series 4 comes with an ECG function that was recently released in the U.S. Since it became available for about a month, the feature is already proving to be a useful one. It was able to detect atrial fibrillation with the new feature and saved a man's life in Nashua, New Hampshire. Barry Maden originally bought the Apple Watch to “keep a closer eye on his health after suffering a brain injury.” He bought the Apple Watch for it's Fall Detection feature. “He originally got it because they have a new fall risk app where, if he were to fall and I'm not nearby, the fall sensor will sense that he fell and call 911,” said his wife, Tara Maden. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla He originally thought he was suffering from anxiety due to travelling for the holidays. However, his Apple Watch alerted him that his heart appeared to be in A-fib. It isn't clear if Maden used the ECG app right away to detect the A-fib. However, it was enough for him to double check if he was suffering from something serious. He soon thereafter took himself to the emergency room. © Apple At the hospital, doctors performed their own tests using a more advanced ECG device to verify the Apple Watch's discovery. It was soon discovered that Maden's “heart was essentially stopped and restarted by doctors.” The Apple Watch has been found to save lives previously and recently saved a woman from drowning in water as her car flipped over.

There have been instances where users were warned of an impending heart attack, indicating heart diseases due to abnormal heart rates and even car crashes. You can read all previous cases of Apple Watch's capability to save lives here. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Now according to a report from Spectrum Bay News 9, another incident resulted in the Apple Watch saving its user's life. However, this time a woman was saved due to a car crash that flipped several times before it landed in a ditch filled with mud and water. © YouTube (for representation purposes only) During the crash, Amanda Antonio, 20, had lost her phone but managed to locate it using a feature on the Apple Watch that pings the smartphone. She then called 911 and according to the transcript this is what she said “Hi, I've been in a car accident. My car is flipped and I can't see anything and there's water getting in the car. I can't get out. The water level was apparently rising at a fast pace and had reached Antonio's chin level. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The feature on the Apple Watch lets users ping their paired iPhone that makes a sound to let the user know where it is.

  24. Life is not a bed of roses for someone in love, and while people are ready to walk the extra mile for their lover, the gripping and tragic tale of Hamid Ansari's love story will give you an incredible perspective on just how much a human can possibly suffer in love. You have heard and probably read about the man who spent the last few years in Pakistan's jail, but what is his life story though? © Twitter Hamid was leading a normal life in India with his family when he met a girl on the internet. They connected and in no time, love blossomed between the two. They wanted to get married and Hamid was ready to commit with all his heart. His lover was from Pakistan and that did not deter his plans of uniting with her. Hamid then applied for a Visa to visit the country but while the wait took longer, his lover was being forced to marry someone else back home. Hamid met another guy online, became friends and then the guy promised to help him meet the girl and advised him to enter Pakistan from Afghanistan. Yes, that was illegal and a way paved with dangers unknown, but that did not stop Hamid. However, luck had other plans and it turned out that the 'friend' was not helping him but instead, got him arrested and thus began Hamid's nightmare. © Twitter He tried to explain to the authorities that his intentions were not malicious and that he was not a spy but things were already in motion against him. Hamid thought he was being swallowed into oblivion and while he longed to meet his parents, regret took over and he almost gave up on hope. In a recent interview, he revealed that he couldn't bathe for days, he was barely given food and the torture he endured was beyond the measures of what he could possible express. Years later, a string of lawyers and the determination of Sushma Swaraj ensured that justice was delayed but not denied to Hamid. Today, he was released and he entered his homeland after more than six years. He obviously cannot stop thanking Sushma Swaraj for her efforts and has a heart full of gratitude. #WATCH Indian National Hamid Ansari who came to India after being released from a Pakistan jail yesterday, meets External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in Delhi.

Hamid now wants to find a job, get married and a have a family of his own. He's home! Delighted that #HamidAnsari has returned to his family this evening after six agonising years in Pakistani jails. @IndiainPakistan pic.twitter.com/KvvWTLM5Ao — Ajay Bisaria (@Ajaybis) December 18, 2018 Normalcy is what was lacking from his life and that is exactly what he wants now. When asked if he ever wondered what happened to the woman for whom he took this major step for, Hamid said that he found out that she was married and was well settled, and that is exactly what he craves for himself as well. Let's hope his life is full of light and hope from now onwards.
  25. Today is a landmark day in history for everyone fighting for justice in the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, as Congress leader Sajjan Kumar was declared guilty by the Delhi High Court today and was awarded a life sentence. © ANI This judgement follows CBI's acquittal of Kumar, who has now been given a deadline of 31st December to surrender and is also liable to pay a fine of Rs. 5 lakhs. The entire nation is obviously lauding this landmark development and celebrating the judgement. Finally the wheels of justice are moving. Sajjan Kumar gets life sentence in the 1984 state sponsored Sikh genocide. Prime Minister Modi's govt facilitated the re-investigation and formed a SIT to investigate the 1984 genocide. Judiciary looked at all the cases afresh. #Respect — Amit Malviya (@amitmalviya) December 17, 2018 I am at Patiala Court today An impt verdict awaited...Sajjan Kumar case of murder of 5 Sikhs during #1984SikhGenocide at Raj Nagar Praying to Almighty - Justice be delivered to Victims of massacre ðð» It would be a big slap on @RahulGandhi face who is supporting butchers of 1984 — Manjinder S Sirsa (@mssirsa) December 17, 2018 #WATCH: HS Phoolka and Manjinder Singh Sirsa celebrate outside Delhi High Court. The Court today sentenced Congress leader Sajjan Kumar to life imprisonment in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case. pic.twitter.com/tpPSgjvDjO — ANI (@ANI) December 17, 2018 The other names in the list include the likes of Jagdish Tytler and Kamal Nath amongst others. Ironically, on a day when Kumar was convicted, Kamal Nath swore in as the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. Sajjan Kumar convicted in 1984 anti-Sikh riots case, Delhi High Court cancels acquittal. Another accused Kamal Nath will take oath as CM today. — Rana Ayyub (@RanaAyyub) December 17, 2018 Ironical that on the day Sajjan Kumar gets life sentence for his role in state sponsored Sikh genocide of 1984, another man named by an eye witness, an IE reporter, for leading a mob that killed two Sikhs in Gurudwara Rakabganj will be sworn in as Congress CM of Madhya Pradesh. — Amit Malviya (@amitmalviya) December 17, 2018 Even though deliverance of justice cannot bring back the lives that were lost, one can still take solace from the fact that at least the wheels of justice are moving in the right direction. I welcome Delhi High Court verdict convicting Sajjan Kumar in 1984 riots case. It has been a very long n painful wait for innocent victims who were murdered by those in power. Nobody involved in any riot should be allowed to escape no matter how powerful the individual maybe. — Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 17, 2018 But then, there are others who are arguing that the verdict has come in a little too late. It took our justice system 24 years to convict Sajjan Kumar! For 24 years, despite committing mass murders, he was a free man & politician. Despite being a criminal, he lived a high life. Frankly think that judgment today ordering life to Sajjan Kumar is too little & too late! — Swati Maliwal (@SwatiJaiHind) December 17, 2018 Sajjan Kumar's conviction by the Delhi High Court is a delayed vindication of Justice. The Congress and the Gandhi family legacy will continue to pay for the sins of 1984 riots. — Arun Jaitley (@arunjaitley) December 17, 2018 It is a very big day in the history of Indian politics. Let us hope the lamp of justice continues to shine brightly and everyone guilty in the case meets the same fate as Sajjan Kumar.
