  1. Your underwear says more about you than any other part of your outfit. Let's understand how. When you dress, a part of it is always to impress others. Yes, yes, it's understandable that a lot of you will vehemently oppose this statement, because 'bro, I only dress for myself and I don't need to impress no one!' But just hear me out. The 'impressing others' bit is essentially subjective, and varies from individual to individual. Some may have only that in mind while dressing, while some don't quite care about that bit as much - but an element of it is always at play whenever you dress. This, however, is not true in case of underwear. You don't wear your underwear to impress others (unless you're going for a date or hooking up, basically). Underwear is about comfort, and your personal style - something that has got nothing to do with impressing others. But then again, this facet is essentially multilayered and not as unidirectional and simple. However, your go-to choice in terms of underwear can reveal more about your *** life that you imagined. Let's take a look: 1. Boxers © Twitter Boxers are perhaps the most comfortable type of underwear out there. Relaxed, breathable, allows breeze (yay!) - basically a 10/10 on the comfort scale. It would seem that everyone would wear only them, and nothing else, right? Wrong. A lot of men don't like wearing boxers despite the numerous pros. Here's why. If you're a boxer man, you don't care about how you look. Okay, that probably isn't a 100% true because all of us do in varying degrees, but your score on the vanity indulgence scale is pretty low. Also, you're not obsessed with your physique. You might work out, but you're not the 'sun's out gun's out' type by a long shot. You don't care that a pair of boxers is getting all bunched up inside your baggy jeans and messing up your butt shape. © Twitter In the bedroom, you're a little shy to start with, but once the initial phase of awkwardness (if at all) is over, you take charge. You're not passive at all, and you clearly know what you want in bed. This confidence is what your partner finds 'hot', because in a social setting, you're the quintessential 'cool' guy who's entertaining everyone else with his puns and wisecracks, so when things get uncharacteristically kinky in the boudoir, your partner's gasping for breath (literally, sometimes, if you know what I mean.) 2. Briefs © Twitter If you're exclusively into briefs, you definitely care about your appearance - with or without clothes. There is a good chance that you lift, or want to build muscles if you already don't have a shredded physique. Comfort? Yes, you care about that too, but keeping only your workouts in mind. To you, if it's perfect option to work out in, it's comfortable - and which type of underwear is the best for a mean lifting session? The kind that supports your balls - briefs, in other words. You squat heavy and know you have a good butt and want to make sure the world (read, your SO or your crush) knows it too. And why not? You're working hard for it. 'Have it, flaunt it' is not a flawed ideology by any means. © Twitter In the bedroom, you like to make sure they know you're well equipped to give competition to Adonis (even if that's strictly in your head). Come on, you do push ups before taking your shirt off, don't you? (wink) For you, the appeal is in knowing that they desire you and want to do it with you, because you're irresistible. This knowledge turns you on more than even perhaps your partner's appearance. Narcissistic? Hell yes, but that's not a bad thing at all! Oh, and you hate boxers. On second thoughts, you probably wear boxers on your cheat day, when you're all by yourself, with a huge plate of biryani and Netflix. 3. Trunks © Twitter You're like Switzerland. You make the middle ground between the extremes. You like to keep fit, but you're pretty flexible in your approach to that. You don't care about the fact that your trunks will be bunched up while you do squats in the gym. You like dressing in formals. You want to ask your date out for a nice dinner first, the traditional way. That's most of you, anyway. The rest of you are freaks of nature, which is a blessing for your partners in the bedroom tbh. © Twitter You're that 'seedha', often bespectacled corporate dude who goes to work in a pressed white shirt and grey trousers, but is not against doing a striptease for his SO after two shots of vodka. You're a family man that the parents approve of, but is a savage thug in the sheets (in a very good way). That is what makes you intriguing to your partner. Some of you are into heavy ass workouts, and rely mostly on body conditioning exercises like Yoga. You're not a show off, but don't mind to flash unexpectedly inside the bedroom, to your partner's absolute surprise - and delight. 4. Thongs © Twitter You're a freak. You possess inimitable confidence about your body - irrespective of whether or not it's sculpted. It's extremely likely that you are into kinkier stuff, as compared to most people. You don't mind your partner taking charge - in fact, you enjoy being objectified in the bedroom. It's very likely that you'd wear a mundane pair of ill-fitting formal trousers , and when your partner gives you that uninterested look - bam! Out comes the buns. © Twitter Your approach to *** is crazy, freaky, and uninhibited, and you have no qualms about it. In an alternate universe, you work in a strip club as a top grade stripper, and are super rich.
  2. When you usually book an Uber, it's because you need to go somewhere, right? Wrong. Sometimes it's not about you, alright? It's about the guy who's supposed to pick and drop you, sometimes the Uber driver is also going through some shit and has to drive around to deal with it, at your expense of course. Okay, it's not sometimes, it's a one-off situation where a guy realized in the most hilarious way that his Uber driver wasn't showing up for him and he had just gone off on a long drive alone. Well, that does sound annoying and expensive, but hey you get a hell of a Twitter thread out of it and social media is the only thing that matters, right? So, who cares. It all started with Twitter user Preshit Deorukhkar tweeting to Uber about his situation – the driver is a no-show, but the trip has already started. @UberINSupport Hi, your 1-trip driver has started the trip without arriving at the location. His phone isn't reachable. What do I do? pic.twitter.com/L6tRT95gmI — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Then, with no other choice, he just followed the driver's route on his app. Now he is just aimlessly roaming around on the Link road. pic.twitter.com/ZcsY5pcQK6 — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Well, at least he has 5 stars. @UberINSupport Also, how is "P" an acceptable driver name by your standards? pic.twitter.com/ku8N3Ts7tT — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Ooh what is he dumping? Is it a murder mystery now? Pickup was in Malad West. Driver has now reached the edge of north Mumbai. I'm assuming he has to dump something in the khaadi. pic.twitter.com/pG3QmAo6lg — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 I really don't know these places, but that doesn't seem right. Umm... Did he just take the Gorai jetty to the other side? pic.twitter.com/eeIdoSBVLw — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Yeah, with all the murder and dumping the body. Looks like he is going to medicate. Must've been a tiring day so far. ð pic.twitter.com/6dO8ziyqd6 — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Me thinks you're right. Or he is dumping a dead body sealed in the car deep in the mangroves, me thinks. pic.twitter.com/SBokjKaLkK — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 You can just hope now. Job done. He's on his way back to the city. Hopefully. pic.twitter.com/jJuoHByVoT — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 What did I say about the long drive? Let him deal with his feelings, driving is very therapeutic. He is taking the longer, less scenic route back the city now. pic.twitter.com/uW1RogD6gL — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 And, the plot thickens. Whoops! Change of plans, he is turning back and heading to nowhere pic.twitter.com/LXtN3NFJdR — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Forgive me, father for I have sinned – didn't pick my passenger, and then probably went and killed someone and dumped their body. "P" has now stopped at Vailankani church. I hope he's going to confess his sins. pic.twitter.com/sEY546CzB9 — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 He's covering all the bases. P has whizzed past this now. pic.twitter.com/SNO3liL0A4 — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 We? I love the enthusiasm. I guess we are headed back to the mangroves now. pic.twitter.com/ni3QnxBYkA — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Who wants to go on a treasure hunt? There's got to be some major stash buried here, right? Gold? Drugs? Arms and ammunition? pic.twitter.com/wkjUmYUgCE — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Is he turning himself in? He's stopped here for some reason. What role are the cops playing in this story ð¤ pic.twitter.com/pgNdG5vXVn — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Nope, false alarm. He's on the highway now, towards the city. pic.twitter.com/YrnwlZXCet — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 That's too bad, I was way too invested in this and I really need to know what P was actually up to. Oh crap! Looks like he's on to me. Trip cancelled. pic.twitter.com/7cEtYyOoEi — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 I would say it was worth it for such a suspenseful and entertaining Twitter thread, but no, that's still a lot of money. Ahahahahahahaha! Rs. 857.43 for this ridiculous @Uber trip. pic.twitter.com/qlzc4hrbKD — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 Uber, explain yourself. Here's Uber's response about the case. Driver goes for a joyride, tries to dupe the rider, wastes rider's time, and all he gets is a “note” on his profile All I got was this response from their internal support system. Note the lack of “sorry” or “apologies” in the response ð pic.twitter.com/EcUxOTOgsM — Preshit Deorukhkar (@preshit) July 19, 2018 It started out great but I was still waiting for a dramatic ending and not just a cancellation and refund but oh well, what a ride this thread was, pun intended.
  3. Netflix's 'Sacred Games', directed by Anurag Kashyap and Vikaramaditya Motwane, has left all of us shaken. Dark, uncensored, and raw, the show captures Mumbai's mafia underbelly in its most honest and disturbing form. We bring you some hard-hitting lessons about survival in the modern world that 'Sacred Games' taught us. 1. Your success is not complete till you start hanging out with the right people © Netflix Hard work is not always a yardstick of success, sometimes who you hang out with matters more. Kukoo tells a smitten Gaitonde to steal her from Isa, the reigning king of the Mumbai mafia, and prove his mettle. It is then that Gaitonde realises Kukoo is the yardstick to his success. By winning her, he wins over Mumbai – he sends out a message that the most coveted woman is by his side. 2. The allies you choose to be on your side can make or break your future © Netflix We think we are alone in our journeys to success or failure, but we are just a sum total of the experiences we choose and also the ones we don't. We choose our friends, our aides, our partners. And every person we choose to be with and listen to affects our decisions and outlook towards life, even without us realising. While a Kukoo could catapult Gaitonde's image to the god of mafia town, an unfaithful employee got his best man killed. 3. Power doesn't come from a having muscular bod or a fat bank balance, it comes from the courage in your heart © Netflix Ganesh Gaitonde becomes the undisputed god of Mumbai's underbelly. In a world run by guns and muscle power, here is a petite skinny man calling the shots. In the jungle, when confronted by a tiger, he stares right back at the beast with courage that even the beast can sense – that, right there, is when he wins over the town. Not with muscle, not with power, but with sheer courage. 4. In times of crisis, we are stronger than we think © Netflix No matter how easily scared we are or how meek-hearted, we're capable of infinite strength and courage in times of crisis. The human spirit is immensely strong and its strength comes out in full force when it faces danger enough to kill it. Ganesh Gaitonde faces soul-crushing misery in prison and almost gives up. One word of comfort from a stranger and he is ready to fight again. 5. There is no perfect time for anything; you have to make things happen © Netflix If you keep waiting for it, it will never happen. You will never be fully prepared. After a point of time, you have to take a chance and grab the opportunity you want. Waiting for every condition to be favourable will only leave you with lost opportunities. A restless Gaitonde grabs the single moment he finds his second boss alone in a river, even though his only friend Mathu has abandoned the plan and he has nothing to fall back on. 6. Most of us play a small part in someone else's bigger plan © Netflix Working day in day out, we keep following a pattern already set for us. Whether it's the job we take up, the career we chose, our decisions are hardly our own. We don't even realise when our will ceases to function and we give in to expectations and fads. Even Gaitonde, who wrote his own destiny, eventually ends up at the mercy of forces stronger than him. Chances are he is a mere pawn in the hands of Bhonsle and Guruji, who represent the dangerous alliance of politics and religion. 7. Love is not bound by gender © Netflix When Gaitonde falls in love with Kukoo, he falls for not just her body. He tells her he no longer wants 'Kukoo ka magic', he wants the real Kukoo. The fact that she is transgender doesn't bother him; he has already fallen in love with the person and doesn't care whether she has a ***** or a vagina. 8. Religion can turn even the most secular of men © Netflix Nothing is more powerful than religion in convincing someone. The masses are an easy subject for practitioners of religion to sway and influence. Ganesh Gaitonde was steadfast in his decision to not let religion enter Gopal Math and did not give too hoots about religion. And yet when he lost his wife Subhadra to a gang war, communal hatred crept in and took the better of him. 9. When you think the worst has happened, there's more to come © Netflix Life is not a feel-good self-help book that tells you everything will always be better. Gaitonde's plight in prison is disturbingly pitiful. After being given the horrible egg cell punishment for days, when he eventually gets out, he is broken but relieved that the ordeal has ended. Real life hits when he realises he is mistaken – there is impending death waiting for him in the form of Isa's men. 10. No one is invincible © Netflix Right in the beginning of the show, Ganesh Gaitonde says “Kabhi kabhi toh lagta hai apun hi bhagwan hai”. He is the undisputed king of his world. Wanted in tons of police cases, he manages to live away from the hands of the law and rule freely over his fiefdom. But in the end, even he falls apart. Taken in by the police, he disintegrates into a mere speck of pity and despondency, ready to give up on life as he pleads Parulkar for a sip of water. Disclaimer: This post does not intend to glorify the violent means adopted by the characters of the show to achieve their means. The lessons derived are only symbolic in their meaning.
  4. In a weird turn of events, the iPhone 7 was able to survive underwater for a full 48 hours and came out without any problems or issues. The iPhone 7 was in a waterproof case and a scuba diver found the phone while she saw it glowing under water. The iPhone 7 had received a text message which made the screen of the smartphone light up and was eventually found by the scuba diver. © YouTube We want to know which case was being used that managed to keep the phone alive under water for a full 48 hours. What's even more shocking is that the iPhone had more than 80 per cent charge and managed to remain on for two full days. What sorcery is this? Scuba Diver Cerys Hearsey discovered the phone after noticing the iPhone glowing 30 feet below water. After finding the iPhone, she noticed it still had 84 per cent battery remaining and went through the contacts to find the owner of the phone. The owner turned out to be Rob Smith's cousin who dropped the phone two days earlier while kayaking in Dorset. The iPhone was dropped over the edge of the kayak and it was assumed that the iPhone was lost for good. © YouTube Cerys told the Mirror “I could see the phone sitting on the bottom of the seabed because it received a message and lit up,” she told the publication. “I picked it up and returned to land where I cut it out of its case as it was starting to get a bit of water inside. I then looked up the numbers and got in touch with the owner's family.” She added, “Phones are so critical to life nowadays they can be difficult to replace.” The iPhone 7 has an IP 67 water resistance rating which allows the smartphone to be submerged under for 30 minutes at up to 1 meter of depth. What's surprising is that the iPhone 7 survived for two days underwater in ocean water and at a depth of 30 meters. All we can say is that waterproof case worked like magic and prevented the phone from getting destroyed. Source: The Mirror
  5. Haircuts are sacred. Especially, since they make or break a man's appearance and by break, we mean — they really do. But, if the barber is instructed right and discussed with well, a haircut can be like the next wonder of the world — just splendid; enhancing one's personality from every nook and corner. Else, a wrong trim/cut is almost like a horror movie in a salon. And one that bombed that at the box office. To arrive upon the best haircut of your life, here's how to really instruct the barber: © Instagram/Virat Kohli 1. Choose Your Words Wisely. Unfortunately, every human's different (and so are their experiences). And, this holds true for barbers too. 'Cleaner on the sides' could either mean a #4 trim, #1 trim or even a fade. And well, as per the guy you're dealing with, he might end up mistaking it for something you're going against. Phrases like "I want a trim, not a haircut", "keep it simple", "I trust you, do whatever you want" are going to either confuse your barber or might make him head into an undesired territory. 2. Do Your Homework And Drop 'Terms'. This may sound like a Herculean task, but if you're wanting the best cut of your life, try getting closer to the lingo of the barbers/hairstylists. Terms like 'texture', 'fade', 'taper', 'buzz cut', 'undercut' are easy to use, and help your barber to visualize your goal better and well, ensure that you're satisfied with your visit to the salon. Know what's the degree of a #1, #2, #3 or #4 trim too. Google it! © Instagram/Raj Kummar Rao 3. Show Him What You're Eyeing. Rule 1: carry an image of the kind of hairstyle you're eyeing (either in print or on the phone). And yeah — show it to him (don't give him directions instead). This way, he'll have a better understanding of what you want. But since not every style would suit every face shape/hair texture, have a word with him before he begins snipping your strands. Listen to him, discuss with him and arrive upon a middle ground. Don't be stubborn! Pro-Tip: It's always great to show your barber a picture of yourself in your last cut too (or of the one you really liked in the past). You'd be surprised with how much this would help him! 4. Your Ears — Show Them Some Respect While You Instruct. What your brand-new haircut is finally going to look like, depends heavily upon the contour around your ears. Clean around the ears, faded behind the ears, short/long sideburns should be a part of your instructions. This will help your barber maintain the consistency of your hair length through the scalp. © Instagram/Ranbir Kapoor Fans 5. Lastly, Keep Your Guard On. Your eyes are to ensure that nothing goes wrong. While he's snipping your strands for your desired style, if mid way, you feel unsure about something he's doing, stop him right then and have a quick chat (don't be rude about it). Try stopping the hurricane before it rips the houses apart. But all in all, let's just say, if your instructions are clear, you wouldn't have to resort to this anyway.
  6. As soon as we got to know that Ranveer Singh is all set to work in a movie under Rohit Shetty's direction, we were prepared to witness the craziness it was bound to give rise to. However, he never manages to not surprise us. Continuing that streak, he delved into the character of 'Simmba' with as much conviction as he possibly could have mustered. The result? A walking, talking ball of energy (take a look at the clips below if you don't believe us). Hell, even his clothes seem to have taken on that personality. His latest appearance gave us a glimpse of that craziness. © Instagram Yes, he is actually wearing a T-shirt that says 'Rohit Shetty Ka Hero'. As if that wasn't enough, he chose to choose colours that are eye-catching AF - in true 'Baba' style. The red leather jacket and the white overalls are perfect, when you want to capture everyone's attention. © Instagram We are quite confused about whether this look is inspired by minimalism or maximalism. Only Ranveer can manage to give rise to a dilemma like that. In principle, though he is wearing a simple combo, he is making it look super grand, perhaps just by being himself. The black high top boots helped, of course. © Instagram If there is anyone who can give the paparazzi a run for their money in terms of being energetic and playing along, it's this man right here. Be it nonchalant grunting, posing like a pro, or saying 'Ala re ala' like it's his living room, Ranveer is a curious case study, to say the least.

  7. 'Sanju' is enjoying a stellar spell at the box office and not only has it given Ranbir Kapoor's career a new steady direction, but has also put Sanjay Dutt in a new light. One of the main focuses in the movie was on the women in his life and while the movie tells us he had over 350 women in his life, there were a few who were super important and an essential part of his life but had no mention in the movie. 1. Trishala Dutt We are guessing this was to guard the privacy of his eldest daughter, which makes a lot of sense. She is his daughter from his marriage with Richa Sharma and has been living in the US all her life. Trishala shares a great rapport with Sanjay's current wife Manyata and her half siblings as well. ð¤ð A post shared by Trishala Dutt (@trishaladutt) on Mar 1, 2018 at 9:22pm PST Complete â¤ï¸ðð» #mybeautifulfamily A post shared by Trishala Dutt (@trishaladutt) on Dec 31, 2017 at 1:38am PST 2. Mahuri Dixit The two were apparently dating for a long time and rumour has it that Madhuri requested Rajkumar Hirani to not include her name or mention her in the script anywhere. The couple was reportedly dating for a while and B-town was abuzz with their romance. © Twitter 3. Rhea Pillai The couple met in 1998 when Dutt's life was in turmoil. It is believed that she helped him find direction during that phase and while their marriage didn't last for the longest time, Rhea in an interview maintained that they remained friends even after the divorce in 2008. © Twitter 4. Richa Sharma She made her debut with Dev Anand's 'Hum Naujawan' in 1985 and was also Sanjay's first wife. The couple fell in love and got married in 1987 and eventually Richa gave birth to Trishala. Richa passed away after fighting a battle with cancer and it broke Sanjay emotionally to quite an extent. © Twitter 'Sanju' tried to give an insight into the life of Sanjay Dutt and gives a different perspective which never came under the media glare. Ranbir Kapoor is raking in a lot of praise for the titular role and has nailed the look to perfection. The transformation video is actually unbelievable. In case you haven't' watched the movie, you sure are missing out on a piece of excellent cinema. Also, in case you are not a Sanjay Dutt fan, you can still watch it for Ranbir Kapoor.

It will vary but we can give you a ballpark. Your members will feel happy knowing what is going to happen and when. There will be some downtime while the data is converted, so it's always best to announce this well ahead of time. Set up a test site Once you are committed to switching, set up a test site. A single Invision Community license can be used for a development installation as well as a live installation. This is the perfect time to work on your theme and look at any tweaks you'd like to make. Invite in your team and a trusted few from your community to offer feedback and advice. It's worth taking the time here to make sure everything is perfect for when you do the final conversion. Make it comfortable Take some time to theme your new Invision Community so it has a similar look and feel to your existing community. Change resistant members will feel more comfortable if there are areas that are familiar to them. Ensuring your branding is up, and the colours match what you had before is a good start. The easy mode theme editor is a great place to start. Mind your language! There are always little differences in the interface language that may throw some of your older members off. For example, some systems use "threads" instead of topics and "messages" instead of posts. The easy language editor Invision Community has a built in translation system so you can change our interface language to match your existing site. Help your members Set up a temporary questions and answer forum where your members can ask how the new system works and give you feedback. Pin a handful of topics explaining where common items are now, such as how to edit your profile, how to send personal messages, how to mark the site as read and so on. Think about the daily activities your members make and explain how to do them with Invision Community. You can use the pre-move time to ask your community what actions they do daily and may need assistance with on the new platform. Be patient Some of us dislike change. We are creatures of habit. You may find some members are very resistant. That's OK, they'll come around in time as long as you continue to make them feel valued and understood. Take the time to explain how the new system works and what the benefits of Invision Community are. In our experience, members love the following Invision Community features: Notifications Invision Community has a variety of granular notification options, from browser to email so you're sure to not miss a thing. Mobile Friendly We're mobile friendly right out of the box. Our theme has a responsive framework, which means that it resizes perfectly to any device you're using. No need for extra themes or styles, it's all baked in. Gamification We all love a little friendly competition don't we? Invision Community has features like the leaderboard and member titles to reward activity. Who doesn't want to win the day? Reactions Liking content is fun, but being able to express thanks, laughter and more is even better. It's all baked into the system ready to use. Educate your team Invision Community has a whole host of moderation tools that your team will love as it makes their daily routines much easier. From the comprehensive warning system, to the crowd sourced moderation feature, which can automatically hide content and notify moderators once it has been reported multiple times, Invision Community makes your moderators lives easier. The best approach is to pin topics in a team area that explains how to use these new features and where to find them. Summary Investing in a new community platform and migrating your community across is a big decision. With the right planning and forethought, it will be a smooth and positive migration with lots to look forward to once complete. We offer free conversion tools for you to use, or we offer a VIP conversion service where we take care of it for you and you get one-to-one help and support throughout the process. We'd love to hear from those who have successfully migrated across from other platforms and how they made it a positive experience for their members.
  9. What is the one thing you'd like to do in life, but haven't got around to yet? This week, we get introspective and look at the things we'd love to do but haven't found the time to do yet. Brandon (Senior tech support and development) Travel more. I've traveled a little bit, but there are still many many places I'd like to visit. Something tells me I'll need to wait for some of the kids to get older and move out first however. Mark H (Tech support) Take a vacation in Hawaii, as that will complete a goal I set in my youth: Visit all 50 States of the US. Have vacationed, usually camping, in 49 of them so far. Marc S (Tech Support) I have a friend who I have spoken to in the US since I was about 13, through originally chatrooms, then ICQ, and these days Facebook. We have always said one day we will meet up, and thats something I certainly intend to do one day, but havent gotten around to it. Rhett (Cloud Support) A week in Phillip Island, Australia for the MotoGP Race. It's still on my todo list! Matt (Senior Developer) Write a book. Unlike my colleagues, I have no strong desire to travel. I've always wanted to write a book though. In my early teens I used to spend time in front of a mechanical typewriter (through choice, I'm not THAT old) and knocked out a few short stories. They were awful, obviously, but I do love the written word and have a few stories I'd like to get down. Andy (Senior tech support and development) Over the years I’ve started learning a few languages and know just enough French and Italian to be dangerous. I’ve never really focused on either though. I would definitely like to get around to becoming a proficient speaker in at least one other non native language. Mark W (Senior Developer) I'm going to go with everyone else and say more travel. Since I get to work from home I often get a niggling feeling that I could be doing this anywhere in the world rather than in my little office in Colchester. I've made some strides in that direction this year: I spent New Years Eve in Sydney, a somewhat interesting series of events led me to spend some time in Washington DC (but that's a story for another time), plus I visited Berlin and Krakow. 4 countries in one year isn't too bad I think, hopefully next year I can break it though! Jennifer (Designer) Visiting my Irish friend in the UK and attempting to go drink for drink with him to see what sort of shenanigans/trouble he gets me into. Daniel (Senior tech support and development) I want to sail around the world for at least one year (but preferable much longer) and visit as many countries as possible on this trip. I would really love to spent my whole retirement on a sailing ship cruising around the world till i get bankrupt! Stuart (Senior tech support and development) I think quite a few people may have a similar answer, but travelling more is something I would really love to do but haven't got to it yet. I've been to USA many times. There are many places on the list I'd like to go at some point like Peru (Machu Picchu), Austraila, Dubai, Indonesia, Bali... Endless list really. A more realistic answer would be to finish some of my project cars that have been sat in a barn for years. We'd love to hear what you would like to do, but don't have time for just yet. Let us know below!

    Big Bang To Big Crunch

    بگ بینگ سے بگ کرنچ تک ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔ بلا شبہ بگ بینگ ایک بہت بڑا دھماکہ تھا ۔جس سے ایک طویل سفر کا آغاز ہوا ۔یہ سفرنشیب وفراز کی کئی منازل طے کرتا ہوا کمال تک پہنچا۔اب سوال یہ ہے ۔کائنات کی اس کہانی میں آخری سین کب اور کیسے ہوگا ۔اس آخری سین کو تمام مذاہب قیامت کے نام سے پہچانتے آئے ہیں۔لیکن سائنس قیامت کے نظریے کو ہمیشہ مسترد کرتی آئی ہے ۔ واحد مذہب اسلام ہے جو قیامت سے متعلق نہایت مضبوط نظریات رکھتا ہے۔حال ہی میں جب سائنس نے قیامت کانظریہ پیش کیا تو منکرین خدا میں زلزلے برپا ہو گئے ۔سائنس نے اعتراف کیا کہ جس طرح بگ بینگ کا دھماکہ ہوا تھا اور کائنات وجود میں آئی تھی۔ اسی طرح بگ کرنچ نامی دھماکہ ہوگا ۔جس کی آواز طویل طوطی جیسی (صور کی آواز سے ملتی ہوئی ) اور لرزاہت خیز ہوگی ۔اس دھماکے کے بعد کائنات واپس اپنے مرکز کی طرف سمٹنا شروع ہو جائے گی۔اس طرح سب کچھ ختم ہو جائے گا ۔سائنس کے اس نظریہ میں کتنی صداقت ہے ۔اسے جانچنے کیلئے ہمیں تھوڑ ا پیچھے جا نا ہوگا۔ انیسویں صدی کے آخر تک انسان یہی سمجھتا رہا کہ آسمان اور ستارے ساکت ہیں ۔کیونکہ ہم لاکھوں سال سے ستاروں سے راستہ معلوم کرتے آئے ہیں لیکن بیسویں کے صدی کے آغاز میں روسی ماہر طبیعات الیگزینڈر فریکڈن اور بیلجم کے ماہر فلکیات جارج لیمیٹرن نے انکشاف کیا آسمان مسلسل پھیل رہا ہے ۔سیارے ستارے تیزی سے ایک دوسرے سے دور ہٹ رہے ہیں پہلے پہل انھیں شدید تنقید کا نشانہ بنایا گیا ۔لیکن 1929 میں حتمی طور پر ثابت ہوگیاکہ بگ بینگ کے بعد جو پھیلاؤ شروع ہو ا تھا ۔وہ آج بھی مسلسل پھیل رہا ہے ۔جس کی بدولت تما م فلکی اجسام ایک دوسرے سے دور جا رہے ہیں ۔آج بھی گریوٹی فورس روز اول کی طرح نئے سیارے ستارے اورکہکشائیں تخلیق کررہی ہے ۔کائنات کی وسعتیں عظیم سے عظیم تر ہو رہی ہیں ۔ کڑی مشقت کے بعد سائنس کی اس پیش کردہ تھیوری پر قرآن کچھ یوں مہر صداقت لگاتا ہے اور ہم نے اپنی قوت سے آسمان کو تخلیق کیا ،ہم اسے مسلسل پھیلاتے جا رہے ہیں (سورہ الذریت آیت نمبر 47) منکرین خدا جواب دیں ! چودہ سو سال پہلے مکہ اور مدینہ کی کچی گلیوں میں کونسی فلکیاتی لیبارٹریاں نصب تھیں ۔جہاں اس مقدس کتاب کو لکھا جاتا رہا ۔اس کتاب کے قاری کئی کئی روز مسجد نبوی میں فاقوں کی حالت میں نماز پڑھا کرتے تھے ۔سن لو اس قرآن مقدس کی ڈیڑھ ہزار آیات تمہاری سائنس کی تمام تھیوریوں پر مہر صداقت لگاتی ہیں ۔اگر وقت مل جائے تو ناسا کے کتب خانوں میں جھانکو ،تمھیں وہاں اس کتاب کی حقیقت کا پتہ چلے گا ۔ سائنس قیامت سے متعلق اپنا نظریہ بگ کرنچ کی صورت پیش کر چکی ہے ۔اس نظریے میں بتایا گیا ہے ۔غبارے کی مانند پھیلتی یہ کائنات ایک مخصوص حد تک پھیل کر واپس اپنے مرکزی نقطہ پیدائش کی طرف سمٹنا شروع ہوجائے گی ۔بالکل اسی طر ح جیسے لکھا ہوا کاغذ لپیٹ دیا جاتا ہے ۔یہ سب نہایت تیزی سے ہوگا ۔سورج اور چاند باہم مل کر ایک ذرہ بن جائیں گے۔ قرآن چودہ سو سال پہلے بگ کرنچ کا نقشہ کچھ یوں بیان کرتا ہے اس دن ہم آسمان کو اس طرح لپیٹ دیں گے جس طرح لکھا ہو اکاغذ لپیٹ دیا جاتا ہے پھر جس طرح ہم نے تخلیق کی ابتداء کی تھی ۔اسی طرح ہم اسکو واپس کر دیں گے (سورہ انبیاء آیت نمبر 104) چاند اور سورج باہم ملے ہوئے ہونگے (سورہ قیمہ آیت نمبر 9) (جاری ) تحقیق نگار ۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔۔ ایم عمران ادیب

    Story of love

    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..????

    سنا ہے حد نظر سے آگے زندگی اب بھی مسکراتی ہے اب بھی سورج کی وہی عادت ہے گھر کے آنگن کو وہ جگاتا ہے مرمریں شوخ سی حسین کرنیں چہروں کو چوم کر اٹھاتی ہیں وہاں صبحیں بڑی توانا ہیں اور سب دن بھی خوب دانا ہیں منہ اندھیرے سفر کو جاتے ہیں روز پھر گھر میں شام ہوتی ہے وہی برگد تلے کی ہیں شامیں ایک حقہ ھے کئی ہیں سامع اب بھی فکریں گلی محلے کی باتوں باتوں میں ختم ہوتی ہیں وہی بچوں کا ہے حسیں بچپن جگنو, تتلی کی ہے وہی ان بن وہی جھریوں سی پیاری نانی ہے وہی پریوں کى اک کہانی ہے اب بھی موسم وہاں نشیلے ہیں وہی قوس قزح کے جھولے ہیں وہی بارش کی مستیاں اب بھی ٹین کی چھت پہ گنگناتی ہیں ہے سخن باکمال لوگوں کا میٹھا پن لازوال لہجوں کا سچ بھی جذبوں کی روح میں ہے شامل نہ محبت یہ آزماتی ہے اب بھی باقی ہے دوستی کا مان اب بھی رشتوں میں جان باقی ہے اب بھی جنت ہے ماں کے قدموں میں اب بھی ماں لوریاں سناتی ہے خوشبویں مٹیوں میں زندہ ہیں عکس بھی پانیوں میں ہیں باقی اب بھی تاروں کے سنگ راتوں کو چاندنی محفلیں سجاتی ہے اب بھی راتوں کو چاند کی سکھیاں اپنے چندا سے ملنے جاتی ہیں اور اک دور کھڑے سائے کو اپنی سب دھڑکنیں سناتی ہیں اب بھی سب قافلے جشن میں ہیں اب بھی سب فاصلے امن میں ہیں مسافر جا کے لوٹ آتے ہیں ان کی یادیں نہیں ستاتی ہیں چلو اب ہم بھی وہیں چلتے ہیں جہاں دل آج بھی دھڑکتے ہیں جہاں اب بھی وہ وقت ساکن ہے زندگی اب بھی مسکراتی ہے سنا ہے حد نظر سے آگے زندگی اب بھی مسکراتی ہے
