  1. Season 8 of 'Game of Thrones' premiered today and boy, oh boy, has it given new light to a particular theory that we've been speculating for so long. Cersei Lannister was introduced to us as a cruel, conniving Queen who was willing to cross any lines when it came to protecting her kids and lover/ twin brother Jaime. We've hated her initially and then we grew to admire her for her unpredictable moves that would challenge the whole sequence of events (remember the burning of the Sept?) all orchestrated seamlessly. A major motivation and central to her arc is the Prophecy that Cersei was made acquainted to as a little girl. © HBO While going deep into the woods around Casterly Rock, Cersei stumbled upon an old woman called Maggy the Frog, who turned out to be a powerful fortune teller. Cersei asked Maggy three questions about her future, however, the answers weren't hopeful. The first said that she wouldn't marry a Prince, but a King. The second said that she would be cast down by a younger and a more beautiful queen who would take all that she held dear. Further, Maggy told Cersei that the king would have 20 children, but that Cersei would only have three, and “gold will be their crowns, and gold their shrouds.” Now, of all the three predictions, Margaery Tyrell did manage to take away most of what Cersei held dear to her including her son, Tommen but besides these three predictions, in 'A Feast for Crows', the fourth book in the series, Maggy reveals to Cersei one final part of the prophecy: “The valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale throat and choke the life from you.” Now, here the valonqar translates to a younger brother. For Cersei, this has always been Tyrion as someone who could possibly try to kill her. © HBO However, if you notice, there is this other 'younger brother' in Cersei's life. Yes, we're talking about Jaime Lannister. © HBO After watching the first episode, this prediction could come to life, because Cersei has commissioned Bron to assassin Jamie. If this fails, Jamie could possibly come after Cersei because he's clearly repulsed by Cersei's rule, which is like the Mad King in more ways than one. To begin with, Cersei made Tyrion believe at the end of the seventh season that she would send the Iron Fleet to help fight The Army Of the Undead. This obviously, was a lie which Tyrion failed to see through for a change. She couldn't care less about the White Walkers or the impending doom as long as she could save herself from it. In the fifth episode of season 7, Cersei told Jaime that she was pregnant. Now, in the premiere of season 8, she consummated her alliance with Euron Greyjoy because the only way she could keep the Iron Fleet and have her way around with it was if she would sleep with Euron which, to her seemed a small price to pay. © HBO Now, Euron telling Cersei “I'm going to put a prince into your belly” is practically impossible — if, indeed, Cersei is still pregnant. It's unclear, however, if that's the case. If you recall, Cersei nixed drinking last season when she realized that she was pregnant. But in today's episode, she was seen sipping a glass of wine after sleeping with Euron. While the Westerosi doctors probably aren't warning Cersei against fetal alcohol syndrome, the change could signal a change in Cersei's status. Regardless of whether Cersei is pregnant or not, she's likely to lose her baby at some point to that effect taking into account how things are moving. But the question is if a majority of the theory has come to pass, as we are still waiting to see who will be the vanquisher of Cersei. It could still be Tyrion, if Jaime ends up getting executed or killed before or during the battle of Winterfell. It could also be Euron Greyjoy. Technically he is the younger brother of Balon Greyjoy and passes the criterion of a valonqar if he realizes that his relationship with Cersei is not based on trust and she could betray him any time.
  2. Before you start reading about one of the most important symbols in 'Game of Thrones', this is your last chance to turn away as there will be spoilers ahead. If you've already seen the previous seasons of 'Game Of Thrones' and the premiere of the final season, carry on reading. We don't know much about the White Walkers, their origin and the Night King's intentions; however, we've seen the dead army's stamp time and time again. It's called the “Death Swirl” and we got to see it again in the first episode of Season 8. It is probably the scariest swirl we've seen yet as it consists of limbs and Ned Umber bang in the centre. The swirl gets discovered by Edd, Beric and Tormund and we get to know more what it may mean. Beric tells us that it may just be a message from the Night King. But before Beric could tell us more about the swirl, Ned Umber comes back to life and interrupts Beric's explanation. We all know that the Night King was created by the Children of the Forest thanks to the Three-Eyed Raven's visions of the past. The swirl was created by the Children of The Forest as confirmed by David Benioff in an interview. © HBO "There are certain symbols and patterns that recur throughout the show. The first time we saw that was in one of the very first scenes in the pilot when Will the ranger sees the Wildling body parts in an odd pattern displayed by the White Walkers. We see it again north of the Wall with the dead horses displayed in a spiral pattern, and then you see it again here and learn where these patterns come from, that they're ancient symbols of the Children of the Forest used in their rituals, and the Children of the Forest created the White Walkers,” said Benioff. From what we can gather, the pattern is symbolic to The Children of the Forest and the message the Night King is trying to send is that he remembers, he knows his purpose and he won't stop until he achieves it. The Night King's intentions and purposes are still shrouded in mystery so we will know for sure when it's revealed. This is not the first time we've seen the swirl as the symbol has made an appearance in various scenes before. We see the symbol for the very first time in the very first episode of Season 1. It was made up of wildling bodies and limbs that were arranged in the pattern of the Death Swirl. © HBO The next time we see the swirl is in the third episode of season three when Jon revisits “Fist of the First Men”. His fellow Night's Watchmen were murdered by the white walkers and their horses were mutilated to form the pattern of the symbol. The horse's heads were arranged in a spiral giving us a confirmation that this symbol plays some form of significance in the Night King's story arc. The last time we saw the Death Swirl before Season 8's premiere was in Dragonstone and was discovered by Jon Snow. It was discovered when Jon was mining for Dragonglass under the forgotten outpost. This discovery is probably the most crucial hint towards the symbol's significance as murals on the walls of the cave depict the Children of The Forest working together with the First Men at the first battle of the Long Night. They were the first to defeat the White Walkers and the death swirl is carved in the cave paintings with much significance. The prominence of the swirl painting on the walls is a major hint that it played a vital role even during the first Long Night. The death swirl according to some theories has to do with some form of magic and maybe some kind of a reminder about how the White Walkers were created. Other theories suggest that the symbol has something to with the weather. The further south these symbols are created, the further winter would envelop these lands. Other theories suggest that it may hold the secret of defeating the Night King. © HBO The Night King was created by the Children of The Forest by piercing a man's chest with Dragonglass. Dragonglass is one of the materials that can also destroy white walkers. If this swirl played a role in the creation of the Night King, just like Dragonglass, it may just also hold the secrets of defeating the Night King. We can't entirely be sure what the Death Swirl means until it is finally revealed in the final season but we can be certain that it plays a crucial role. It may be related to the Night King's ultimate fate or it may just be bigger than that altogether. Remember, George RR Martin has already said in past interviews that the ending to the series will be bittersweet. It's best we forget the traditional “Good Vs. Evil” concept and start preparing for some major shock in the final season of 'Game of Thrones'.
  3. If waking up in the morning and finding pimples on your face is a recurrent eventuality in your life, and if you've tried all possible anti-acne products to get rid of your pimples, you need to focus on other reasons that are causing these pimples. Besides being disposed to sensitive skin, there are other unforeseen factors that could be causing your pimples. Some of these could be: 1. Your Tendency To Touch Your Face Might Make Your Breakouts Worse © Getty Images While it might be tempting, it's not a great idea to play with your face throughout the day. Chances are picking your pimples could make them red leaving a scar behind. Also, remember to never pop that pimple because extracting the pus out of your pore could run the risk of pushing the bacteria deeper and making the problem worse. Besides, all the times at work when you rest your hand on the chin while sitting at your desk can transfer bacteria from your hand onto your face. Use a pimple-patch to cover pimples if you have an uncontrollable urge to touch newly formed zits. 2. Stress Breeds Pimples © Getty Images These two might seem completely unrelated but stress triggers acne. Pressure-filled situations make your skin produces stress hormones, like cortisol, that stimulates oil glands to make testosterone which in return increases oil production and clogs your pores which translates to more breakouts. Working out regularly and taking time off your busy schedule are things will help you release stress and subsequently the cluster of pimples. 3. Your Smoking Habit Is Also Causing A Lot Of Pimples © Getty Images Lighting a cigarette decreases the oxygen supply to your skin. Smoking not only increases the chances of cancer but also causes the breakdown of collagen and elastin that leads to wrinkles and increased pore size. The carcinogens in the smoke also irritate your skin and dry it out, triggering it to produce more oil and, possibly, more breakouts. The obvious solution to getting fewer pimples is nixing smoking. Trust us, it's not helping you. 4. The Food That You Eat Can Cause Acne © Getty Images Tomatoes and peppers are two common ingredients in spicy foods that contain acidic lycopene. This is an irritant that can trigger breakouts around the mouth. However, it's not just spicy food that can trouble your skin. Certain people have a strong reaction to dairy, gluten, or other types of foods. It really depends on what suits you and what doesn't. 5. Post-Workout Neglect Trigger Body Breakouts © Getty Images Skipping the shower right after working out allows the dirt, bacteria, oil, and sweat to seep into your pores and cause breakouts. If the commute from the gym to your place is long, get face wipes. It does damage control and makes us not showering immediately after. 6. The Ingredients In Your Skincare Might Be Causing Breakouts © Getty Images Read your labels. We know this is easier said than done but if you don't know what to look for, a good place to start would be sticking to products labelled “noncomedogenic,” which means it has been specifically formulated not to clog your pores. That said, if you've tried all the above and your breakouts continue to worsen, make an appointment with your dermatologist to see if you could be allergic to another ingredient in any of the products you use. 7. Your Face Scrub Might Be Causing Harm To Your Face © Getty Images Rough exfoliants like face scrubs, loofahs, or cleansing brushes are only going to worsen your breakouts. The idea here is to repair your skin's protective barrier to keep bacteria at bay. If your skin is sensitive and acne prone, stick to a mild face that gently washes your face.
  4. Once you've decided and made up your mind that you are going to lose some fat this summer, a particularly tricky question is bound to pop up in your mind. Should You Do Cardio Or Lift More Weights To Burn More Body Fat? You will get lots of random information for this question with some weird logic attached to them. So, to solve this problem for you I am going to give you the correct answer with a logical explanation. Which Form Will Burn More Number Calories For You? The first thing you need to understand for fat loss is that you need to create a deficit in your daily calorie intake. This deficit can be created in two ways, first is to reduce the number of calorie intake and second is to increase the number of calories burned. Right now, I am just going to talk about the second one. To burn more calories you will have to work out for at least 5-6 days in a week. Now, what should you choose as a medium of exercise, cardio or weights? Let me tell you something that will help you to make the choice easier. You will burn more calories in a single session of cardio exercise as compared to a single session of weight training. via GIPHY Now I am sure that you would be thinking that cardio is a clear choice as it will help you to burn more calories per session. Well, here is what you missed. Though cardio will burn a number of calories for you inside the gym once you step outside it is weight training that will help you more. When you do resistance training, your body will start building muscles which will have a greater impact on your metabolic rate than cardio alone. Cardio Alone Could Create Problems Trying to lose weight by performing only cardio session may prove to be really harmful to you in the long run. People who try to reduce their weight quickly using cardio exercises are the ones who later on complain about having loose skin. They lose fat but their skin becomes loose and soggy. People who weight train are able to build muscles and thus their chances of having loose skin after fat loss becomes less. Secondly, long duration cardio sessions multiple times a week are going to cost you dear on the joints. People who perform long runs of treadmill almost every day complain about having knee and other joint pains. And thirdly, cardio alone could also lead to muscles loss and chronic fatigue. © Getty Images What Should You Do? You will find people out there who will bash cardio completely. They will tell you that stepping on a treadmill is like a sin inside the gym. Here's my perspective as a coach: Cardio can be included in your workout program if you plan it smartly. Your first priority should always be to train every muscle group with weights at least once a week. Now if you still have some time left that you can spend in the gym, you may include a couple of small cardio sessions every week. These sessions can be included to build up good endurance stamina as well. The way you like to balance it is your personal choice, but yes, resistance training should always be your priority.

  6. It has been a couple of years since Apple has launched a 'small' iPhone. The last small and compact phone from the company was the iPhone SE that came out all the way back in 2016. Well, if the new report is something to go by, then it looks like Apple might finally launch a compact iPhone next year. According to DigiTimes, Apple is readying new iPhones for 2020 with display sizes - 5.43-inch, 6.06-inch, and 6.67-inch. Looks like the company will be sourcing the displays from Samsung or LG. The current lineup, in case you're wondering, has display sizes of 5.8-inch (iPhone XS), 6.1-inch (iPhone XR), and 6.5-inch (iPhone XS Max). So, if it turns out to be true, Apple will reduce the size of the smallest model while increasing the size of the biggest model. © Unsplash We're not entirely sure as to what Apple is planning to call these new iPhones, though. But if we were to guess, then the smallest iPhone would be called iPhone SE2, which has been passing the rumour mill for quite some time now. But again, that raises questions about the names of other iPhones, so your guess is as good as ours, really.
  7. Yes, you read it right. If things do go right, ace musician Bappi Lahiri soon might be the sound master for one of the Marvel movies in the near future. He is already in conversation with the production team and things are looking good for him. © Instagram Well, if you remember, his song 'Jhoom Jhoom Baba' was used for 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' back in 2017 and even Chris Pratt was taken by surprise. "I am currently in talks with Marvel Studios. They had used my song Jhoom Jhoom Jhoom baba. Chris Pratt, the hero of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, had really liked the song. So maybe a song (by me) will be used in their next film. I will go to Hollywood in April," Bappi told IANS in a telephonic interview. Bappi Lahiri will also be seen in a fantastic collaboration with rappers Snoop Dogg and Akon as well. Bappi Lahiri is already making a movie this year titled 'Ek Adhura Sangeet' © Instagram If you're wondering about a possible biopic on the interesting man, well, he has had the same thought. There is nothing in the pipeline yet but he wants Ranveer Singh to play his role, if at all this happens. The man has a career that expands over 4 decades, so well, are you ready to listen to some Bappi Da in the next Marvel adventure?
  8. Can you imagine a guy, who was once in a Twilight movie is now a freaking Oscar winner? Yeah, me neither. I feel like no one really remembered Rami Malek playing a vampire in the last Twilight movie, and it's safe to say he's come a long, long way since then. Rami is still being smothered in praises for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and now, he has another incredible role already lined up. Turns out, he's going to play the villain in the next Bond movie. Actually, it's not like his Oscar win had to do anything with him getting the role, the only problem was scheduling, as he had to shoot for 'Mr Robot'. But, now it seems like everything has been figured out and the negotiations are almost done. Get ready, we will probably have a cool new Bond villain soon! Everyone is! Rami Malek going from Freddie Mercury to Bond villain? I'm down for that! https://t.co/mqZJ63mOTw — Tyler Calvert (@Tyler_Calvert23) February 27, 2019 Just to be clear, they wanted him before the Oscar win. They love getting recent Oscar winners for their villains. First Javier Bardem, then Christoph Waltz, now Rami Malek. I dig it. — charley15z (@tcallerman) February 27, 2019 Let him! Please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth, please let him wear those Mercury teeth. https://t.co/d0lzkKx84j — Adam Lowes (@adlow76) February 27, 2019 He would be, tbh. This makes me very happy. I could see Rami Malek becoming an iconic Bond villain given the talent involved in this movie. https://t.co/u9vIoxxecd — Nolan Dean ð(he/him) (@nolandean27) February 28, 2019 Everything is a surprise! Damn, Rami's career is like rocket science. I remember when he was playing as Benjamin in Breaking Dawn. Now he got an Oscar and playing as villain in Bond 25. ðhttps://t.co/Yu8mLTrHEV — Dinda. (@ClaireBearStory) February 27, 2019 I need to check them out now. If you've seen Rami Malek in interviews you'll know he's already a Bond villain. — Dan Marcus (@Danimalish) February 28, 2019 He really is. Awards season made me side eye him, but he's a great actor. I'm into it. https://t.co/DoVqO4rN4G — Ami (@Amic_8197) February 27, 2019 He would be so good. LISTEN I like this. Despite the steaming pile of garbage that is Bohemian Rhapsody, I think that Malek is a very good actor and I definitely think he would make a cool, suave, unpredictable villain. Especially in a Cary Fukunaga movie! https://t.co/fPwfE2xSFa — Mary (@mareli221) February 27, 2019 Yes, everyone. Am I going to watch a Bond movie purely for Rami? Of course https://t.co/pt00ayKnhg — zoe is kinda ia (@arcofagamotto) February 28, 2019 Someone make it happen! Me reading this tweet still waiting for @idriselba to be announced as bond. pic.twitter.com/VGx7juuMpv — Mike Namez (@MikeNamez) February 27, 2019 It would kill it! imagine idris elba as bond and rami malek as the villian... THE FLAVOR https://t.co/2YcFNke6wJ — amber (@tyrellwellthic) February 27, 2019 Can't wait. Rami Malek is rumoured to be the next Bond villain, can't wait for him to add 16 syllables to "Mr Bond" — Cam Williams (@MrCamW) February 28, 2019
  9. We are all for fast-paced, gripping entertainment on any given day. A thrilling, action-packed film almost always succeeds to grab our attention as compared to the sappy motion pictures that we have to sit through on a lazy Sunday night with our girl. So talking of the forever special place the good ol' action and crime thrillers hold for the likes of us, we had to let you in on the fact that the latest trailer for 'Triple Frontier' has gotten us hooked and left us asking for more. © Netflix Starring big names like Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Oscar Isaac amongst others, the trailer gives us a peek into the racy plot of the movie, that is riveting enough to bring us onto the edge of our seats. The trailer opens with a covert peek into the post-retirement life of five former Special Forces operatives who are frustrated with their sucky pensions and lack of better opportunities in the future, besides a lot of other things. So they decide to take matters into their own hands and plan a heist on a drug lord's blood money. All goes well until the paramilitary, cops and the drug lord's goons come after them. As the ex-operatives set out to straighten out their lives by getting their hands dirty with something criminal, and keep themselves about the country for the first time in their life, the shitstorm makes it exciting enough for us to count the days until its release on Netflix. With a huge cast to boast and a plot that has already gotten us hooked with the 'Narcos' and 'Hurt Locker' feels, we bet this one is going to be one helluva ride. 'Triple Frontier' releases on March 6, 2019 on Netflix.
  10. It's 1955. The Cold War is in full swing. Thriller writers are having the time of their life. As for the rest of us, the threat of nuclear armageddon hangs over us, like, well, a mushroom cloud. In the middle of all this, the USAF's B-52 Stratofortresses keep making sorties, flying out of bases in the UK, going up to the Soviet Union's border. Just in case… via GIPHY Fast forward to 2018. The world's changed unimaginably. The President of the United States argues with people on something we call 'Twitter'. But the B-52 is still soldiering on, flying missions in the South China Sea, reminding the PRC that the United States is still around, even if it's bogged down with fights over silly walls and whether the President had an affair! The Mean Machine - Boeing's B-52 Stratofortress The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a legendary war machine - it's been around for longer than most of us, and thanks to constant upgrades, it's still on the frontlines. © Tech. Sgt. Nathan Lipscomb for US DoD The Balkans, the Gulf War(s), Afghanistan. It's been there, bringing a reign of destruction on people Uncle Sam doesn't like. And it's gonna be around for many years to come... The B-52 project started in 1946 - just after the Second World War ended. The Cold War was starting, and the US wanted something to maintain its dominance. Designed to carry massive nuclear (and thermonuclear) weapons, the B-52 first took to the air in 1952, entering service in 1955. The B-52 Was A Harbinger Of Doom Even though the B-52 was later used with conventional weapons - it was responsible for carrying out several 'carpet bombing' missions in the Vietnam war - it was really meant for World War Three - carrying hydrogen bombs to attack the Soviet Union if the 'balloon ever went up'. via GIPHY One of the bombs the B-52 carried was the B61- which had a yield of nearly half a megaton. Another was the Mark 39 - which, hang on to your hats, had a yield of nearly 4 megatons! For reference, the bomb that levelled Hiroshima was just 20 kilotons. Always Ready As part of Operation Chrome Dome, B-52 bombers were kept constantly airborne - the reasoning being that even if the Soviet Union managed to 'take out' the US's ICBMs on their launchpads with a first strike, the B-52s (and the US Navy's missile submarines) would be around for retaliation. Even better, they could dissuade the Soviet Union from even trying to start a nuclear war. © Senior Airman Malcolm Mayfield for US DoD All That Flying With Nukes Was Risky Did you know that we nearly faced nuclear armageddon in 1961? The US and Soviet Union weren't about to attack each other (though they came close on several occasions in the sixties). What happened was that a B-52 carrying two Mark 39 bombs broke up in mid-air, and the crew eventually bailed out. As it turns out, the two bombs fell out of the aircraft, and one of them got activated - with only one final switch preventing it from going off! The B-52 Even Shot Down A Fighter Jet! You wouldn't imagine a big, lumbering bomber to be able to shoot down one of the most legendary fighter jets ever, but that's exactly what happened in Vietnam back in 1972 - the tail gunner in a B-52 managed to shoot down the newest, deadliest jet fighter of the time - the MiG-21. A one-off? Heck, no! Another crew in another B-52 repeated this feat some days later! Pretty impressive, isn't it? © Staff Sgt. Michael Battles for US DoD This Massive Bomber Might Be In Service For Another 50 Years The B-52, like every other piece of military equipment, has been getting upgrades throughout its life - the last major version first flew in 1961, with production stopping a year later. Of course, it's been given a lot of nips and tucks over the years, with fancy new electronics being retrofitted. © Senior Airman Jonathan McElderry for US DoD That means that even the youngest B-52 is well over 50 years old - but what's even more surprising is that the USAF might keep on flying these aircraft for another half-century. That's right, the B-1 Lancer (a gorgeous machine for sure), the F-117 stealth fighter, and the B-2 stealth bomber came much later, but nothing has managed to replace the B-52! © NASA There's a new upgrade programme on its way, with new engines, and new avionics, and who knows, the next generation might grow up marvelling at this 'Big Ugly Fat F@#er' (the nickname given to it by US troops in Vietnam) which has managed to outlast every other machine!
  11. In 2017, a Porsche sold for, hang on to your hats, $2.08 million. Eye-watering by even today's stratospheric supercar prices. But you know why this was such a big deal? The car in question, a Porsche 959 Sport, was 30 years old, and when new, cost in the region of $200,000! © Porsche Probably The First Supercar There's a thin line between supercars and sports cars, but the Porsche 959 stepped over that rather firmly. Production started in 1987, ending a year later, and just 292 of these were built (including just 29 Sport versions). 450hp, a top speed of 200mph, a 0-60mph time of under 4 seconds (3.6s for the Sport), the 959 was perhaps the first real supercar (as opposed to 'sports cars' and 'GT cars'). Consider this: One of today's most desirable cars - the 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 - does the 0-60mph sprint in 3.5 seconds, which doesn't seem like a vast improvement over a car built when computers had less power than the smartwatch you got on your birthday. In fact, the two other legendary cars from the 1980s - the Ferrari Testarossa and the Lamborghini Countach, were nowhere near the 959 (both doing 0-60 in around 5 seconds). The 959 was in a league of its own - and it was gorgeous, the wide fenders, the racing-inspired bodywork, the rear wing, everything about it screamed 'speed'. Porsche Might Have Lost Money On It Porsche never intended the 959 to be a mainstream car - not like the legendary 911. In fact, some people say Porsche might have made a loss on every single 959 sold - one estimate says Porsche was selling it for less than half of what it cost to make! What Porsche was going for, then, was to show the very bleeding edge of tech - just what was possible if you threw out all the stops and said 'to hell with the costs'. © Zoom So the 959 came with four-wheel-drive, an adjustable suspension. Speed was so important that Porsche fitted its diva with hollow-spoke alloy wheels (to keep the weight down). Attention to detail like only the Germans can! Even Crashed 959s Sell For Half A Million Dollars “Okay”, you'd think, “if I had a few million lying around, I'd pay $2 million for a legendary Porsche supercar” - one that changed the car industry forever with its tech-heavy nature. But what about the chap who paid $467,500 for a 959 that had been in an accident? Yup, the car still ran, and we assume he got it repaired, but that's still a lot for a car that's been smashed up! The Dakar Edition Is Worth Even More The 959 Sport might be rare, but there's another 959 that's as rare as rain in the Sahara Desert - that would be the racing 959 that was built in 1985 - even before full-time production started - for the Paris-Dakar Rally. It didn't manage to complete the rally, but it had loads more going for it - this 959 was driven by three-time Dakar rally winner Rene Metge, and one of its later owners included Belgian racing legend Jacky Ickx © Zoom But It's Still Nowhere Near The World Record Price For A Car Sorry, Porsche, your 959 might be desirable but your arch-rivals have gone one better - In 2018, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for $48.4 million. The same weekend, another car, 1935 Duesenberg set the record for the most expensive American car sold at an auction - $22 million. But there's a difference - the 959 is remarkably modern (It even came with a tyre pressure monitoring system) and can still be driven around every day. So does that mean your rickety hatchback will be worth that much someday? Well, we'd doubt it but you can always dream!
  12. It sure is a scary thought, but it's inevitable. Most of our favourite cricketers are going to hang their boots one day and we will watch them go with a heavy heart. Here below we discuss 5 legendary cricketers who could possibly retire after the 2019 ICC World Cup: 1. MS Dhoni © Reuters A lot has been said about the decision to include Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the Indian squad for the World Cup. With Rishabh Pant showing his worth both as a batsman and a wicket-keeper during the Border-Gavaskar Test series in Australia, the idea of Dhoni playing in the biggest tournament this year has been challenged by many. But his performance in the ODI series against the Aussies has cleared all doubts that he's not only still got it but continues to be one of the elite batsmen out there. The batsman has shown interest in playing the 2019 World Cup ever since he gave up his captaincy. "It's been a long cherished dream of Dhoni - since he gave up the captaincy in white ball cricket - to play in the World Cup next year where he would be more as a mentor to the team,” Dhoni's Manager, Arun Pandey told Gulf News in 2018. He's had a wonderful career ever since he became a part of Team India. Probably the most loved captain ever, he is also the most accomplished. The best way to say goodbye to the sport for Dhoni would be to play this World Cup, or better yet, win it. A final token of love for the country, one final medal on his wall. 2. Chris Gayle © Reuters Considered to be on a declining career roller-coaster, this may be Chris Gayle's last big show as an active batsman for the West Indies. 2018 was probably one of the worst years for the big hitter who was absent from the Windies squad for long. Despite that, Windies chief selector, Courtney Browne is certain that Gayle will play a crucial role during the team's World Cup run. A part of his national team for four World Cups, Gayle is known for his big innings and making unbelievable records including a massive 215 double century against Zimbabwe during the 2015 World Cup With injuries keeping the former captain away from the pitch for long, the World Cup would be the perfect opportunity for the fans to witness one last 'Gayle Storm'. 3. Ross Taylor © Reuters Making his ODI debut all the way back in 2006, this Kiwi is still playing like a 20-year-old fresher with strong legs and back to support his game. In what has turned out to be a great 2018 for the former New Zealand captain, Taylor scored 639 runs in just 11 ODIs which included two centuries and four half-centuries. "It's a World Cup year, and I've put a big focus on the tournament and on one-day cricket," Taylor said in a post-match press event after the second one-day international against Sri Lanka on Saturday, 5 January. "There are still a few things I want to work on, but I can hopefully continue the form over the summer." Despite the recent run of success Taylor is enjoying, his inconsistency along with his age are hinting his separation from the game. Under the leadership of Kane Williamson and Taylor, New Zealand are looking like real title contenders. 4. Dale Steyn © Reuters The South African pacer was last seen playing in the 50 over format all the way back in 2016 when they were hosting Australia for a five-game series which the Proteas won with a 5-0 clean sweep. "It's so bloody long ago I can't even remember it," Dale Steyn said in an interview with ICC. "What I do remember is that we won 5-0. And it's a team game. And that's all that matters." Since then, Steyn, who's distanced himself from ODIs, has often shown interest in participating in the 2019 World Cup and has also mentioned how he wants his country to lift the championship a lot more. Finding his fitness once more, the bowler played a big role in the Hampshire County Cricket Club England and Wales' domestic first-class cricket circuit and can capitalise it on it during the World Cup in June. 5. Hashim Amla © Reuters Known for his quiet demeanour and a strong presence on the pitch, South African cricketer and Dale Steyn's former teammate, Hashim Amla as a performer, is deteriorating with every single day. Once a proud opener for the Proteas with a powerful and prestigious career of his glory days behind him, the 36-year-old is currently struggling with his pace in all formats of the game. Although the team has other options should Amla not get his touch back, there is still a lot of time for 'the mighty Hash' to get there. What is probably a bit more worrying is his bad luck dealing with injuries. If this is going to be Amla's big exit from the cricketing world, he will most certainly try his best to perform with how much ever fuel he has left in his tank.

  14. The buzz around Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer 'Gully Boy' does not seem to be dying down at all. It all started with Zoya Akhtar's announcement the she plans to make a movie inspired by the life story and achievements of rappers Divine and Naezy, which would also depict the lives of upcoming hip-hop singers and rappers in Mumbai at large. View this post on Instagram Aasmaan ko chukaar niklenge tere saamne @ranveersingh @dubsharma #GullyGang A post shared by D I V I N E (GULLYGANG) (@vivianakadivine) on Mar 31, 2018 at 8:47am PDT This was followed by the release of the movie posters at the beginning of this year, which piqued the interest of movie-goers and desi hip-hop fans alike! The teaser soon followed, and honestly, no one has been able to keep calm for obvious reasons! The teaser gave us a glimpse the rising rap-star played by Ranveer, and his portrayal and original rap 'Asli Hip Hop' has taken the entire nation by storm! Ranveer and Alia's portrayal of two youngsters who live in the fringes of society, but wish to realise their dreams and aspirations, have struck a chord with millions in the country. The trailer for 'Gully Boy' just dropped and it's a marvel how intimately the director has captured the struggles and fighting spirit of aspiring rappers in Mumbai, and traced their journey from the backstreets of the city to acquiring fame. Ranveer's serenades in the trailer is top notch music to the ears, and we can totally say that Divine's effort of teaching Ranveer the nuances of rapping are pretty evident. Ranveer and Alia's chemistry in the trailer is top-notch, and we can't wait to unravel their story. We are smelling a love triangle in the making, given that Kalki Koechlin also seems pretty taken by the rapper boy here. The trailer, with its many narratives, has effectively drawn us into the world of the underground rappers in Mumbai, who are trying to rise above their realities, setbacks and societal prejudices, to create a name and space for themselves. Ranveer's character is all set to take us through an equally emotional journey, that exposes the raw side of a struggling artist waiting to unleash his passion. Alia makes for an honest 'gundi', who also happens to be a loving and supportive girlfriend. The picturisations seem too true to life, and we're loving it! This is going to be one hell of a ride, and perhaps like fans and hip-hop lovers in the country are claiming, this film in all probability might bring about the hip-hop revolution India has been waiting for all this time. We have loved how Zoya has presented these young dreams on the silver screen, and it wouldn't be wrong to say that it's going to be a long wait till the movie releases. 'Gully Boy' releases on 14th February.
  15. The current crop of Bollywood new comers and actors are quite a package when you talk about good looks combined with immense talent. Kartik Aaryan is currently enjoying a lot of good energy and catching great vibes from the fraternity and even from all the young women who are swooning over the actor. View this post on Instagram The year 2018 has been the most special year of my life ♠ï¸♥ï¸â³ I can't thank 2018 in more than one way. The year gave me Sonu.

  16. Ranveer Singh has been putting his best sartorial foot forward for his 'Simmba' promotions (when does he not, really?) From his Tiger Bappi jacket to his Gucci 'Loved' hoodie, the man has been pulling all the stops out, and he continues to do so. He just stepped out wearing a black leather jacket with gold studs that had us wide-eyed. Take a look. (c) Instagram.nikitajaisinghani (c) Viral Bhayani He's wearing the 'Inferno' jacket by Fausto Puglisi, that is spellbinding in terms of its construction and the glamorous, studded retro aesthetic. (c) Glamood (c) Glamood The jacket costs a whopping 4,755 Euros, which when converted to Indian currency, comes to Rs 3,80,747. Yes, you read that right. However, if that was not enough, there is another element in his outfit that stole the thunder from this piece of art. We're talking about the gold boots he is wearing. Take a look. (c) Instagram/nikitajaisinghani (c) Pinterest He's wearing the Signature Hedi Boot Zipped in Dark and Gold 40 Grained Metallic Leather from YSL. Even though it costs 'only' 695 Euros, that is INR 55, 650 (hey, they are inexpensive compared to that jacket!), they have our complete, unadulterated attention. Whoever said men can't pull off golden boots, need to see these bad boys. (c) Pinterest (c) Losarys Don't you just love the ensemble? The black and gold is doing wonders for the savagery his character clearly embodies in the movie. (c) Viral Bhayani Spellbound, Baba. That's all!
  17. For a man who was working as a groundsman before impressing a local coach who eventually helped him in landing a job as a professional cricketer, Nathan Lyon has undoubtedly come a long way to establish himself as one of the most effective spinners in the longest version of the game. Making his debut in 2011, Lyon took just four years to become Australia's most successful Test off-spinner of all time, passing Hugh Trumble's tally of 141 wickets. During that phase, while the cricketing world was going gaga over Ravichandran Ashwin, Lyon quietly went about his business, taking key wickets at crucial intervals with his ever-improving spin prowess. Today, he is one of most experienced and key players in the Australian fold, especially in the longest format. And, India's ongoing tour of Australia has once again highlighted how good this 31-year-old offie has been for his country. Playing in two Tests (Adelaide & Perth), Lyon didn't really surprise anyone by emerging as the leading wicket-taker in the four-match series. © AP The Aussie spinner has claimed 16 scalps at an average of 19.43, including two five-wicket hauls. More importantly, if it wasn't for five-wicket haul in the first innings and three more scalps in the second, Australia wouldn't have managed to peg India back with a 146-run triumph in Perth. Going into the third Test which would be crucial for both the sides, the Indian cricket team would be eager to upstage the Australian spinner who has, so far, spelled doom for some of the biggest names in the visiting side. And, while the Indian batting coach Sanjay Bangar will surely be working closely with the batsmen on the Lyon problem, Sourav Ganguly has come up with a special advice for Virat Kohli & co to tackle the offie. “I had thought of sending a text to Kohli but I haven't done it yet. I wanted to tell him that you shouldn't give so many wickets to spinners outside the subcontinent. There is no doubt that Nathan Lyon is a great spinner but so were Shane Warne, Muttiah Muralitharan and Graeme Swann,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by India TV. © AP “They have shown him too much respect by defending a lot of deliveries outside the off-stump. Instead, I feel they should attack him more and look to build towards at least a total in excess of 300-350,” he added. The former Indian skipper was critical of the Indian batsmen and expressed his disappointment at their repeated failures. He further opined that the Indian batsmen, despite touring Australia back in 2014, have not shown any signs of improvement. “For all of India's top order batsmen, this is not their first tour to Australia. They have been there before. Logically their game should improve over the years but from what we saw in Perth, it is difficult to say it has. Barring Kohli and (Cheteshwar) Pujara, none of them are making a lot of runs and this is not good for the team. If India have to win, they will have to do a lot more,” Ganguly said. With the four-match series currently tied at 1-1, Kohli and his men will be eager to take note of Ganguly's advice before locking horns with Australia in the third Test, slated to begin from 26th December at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
  18. With 'Zero' all set to hit the screens tomorrow, anticipation has been skyrocketing today, more than ever before! While Shah Rukh Khan fans have been waiting for the movie's release with bated breath, Katrina seems to be stealing the show just hours away from the official release. The makers of 'Zero' released the latest song from the movie titled 'Heer Badnaam' that features Katrina Kaif and SRK, and gives the audience a glimpse of Kat's character in the movie. Katrina plays the role of superstar Babita Kumari in the film, who has a fling with SRK's character Bauua Singh. While the song gives us an insight into the larger plot of the film, it is actually Katrina's fiery performance in the video clip that has caught viewers' attention. Many have claimed that this might be the IT moment for Katrina in the industry, where she makes her place as an actor of worth, besides being just the great dancer that she is. Here is what Twitter thinks about the song and Katrina's performance in it: Have you seen the powerful display of emotions in the latest song from #Zero? #KatrinaKaif kills it with her strong emotions truly adding to the upbeat sounds of the song #HeerBadnaam More reason to watch #ZeroThisFriday https://t.co/QeWCgqh6s1 — AsianStyleMagazine (@AsianStyleMag) December 20, 2018 I don't think any Katrina fan can deny the impact that #HeerBadnaam has left on us.

  19. “MenXP, are you using internet explorer?” “Admin, the trailer came out like 10 days ago.” “Admin, keep up, we already know everything, you're late.” Before anyone comments anything like this, I'm saying sorry, yes everyone did the story as soon as the trailer comes out and not 11 days late like us, but at least better late than never. Thank you. The trailer is tragic, obviously, but it's still brilliant. I mean Marvel finally gave us the trailer but they made the trailer in such a way that you still can't figure out exactly what's happening. This has given rise to plenty of fan theories already and if you want to read about some of those, we'll have you covered, just check MensXP in the next few days for those. Coming back to the trailer, here are some things that stood out for me after watching (and rewatching, and rewatching, and rewatching…) the trailer and the things that might have been missed by some people when they watched the trailer. 1. The A in the title reveal 'reassembling' The title reveal in the trailer is pretty cool, to say the least, and it might be giving us a hint because Marvel doesn't do anything randomly, it's all calculated. Okay, just look at the A coming together, or rather reassembling, so it could be pointing to all the characters who turned to dust coming back together. Basically, the trailer might be telling us for sure that everyone will come back and honestly, that's the kind of positivity I need in my life. 2. Whose hand is that? The trailer sets it up to look like it's Nebula's hand on Tony Stark's shoulder but we all know Nebula's hand doesn't look like that and we all also know how misleading Marvel trailers can actually be. Well, my guess is that it's Captain Marvel there to save Tony since she's going to play a huge role in the movie. 3. Shuri also turned to dust in Infinity War It's kind of a blink and you miss it moment but when Bruce Banner is looking at Scott Lang's picture in the missing people database, you can see a slide with Shuri's face which quickly turns to Peter Parker. This kind of contradicts the assumptions people made about how Tony was getting help from Shuri because of some set pictures that showed Tony somewhere that looked like Wakanda. 4. Whose hand is it? Part two Seeing Peggy Carter's picture in the trailer was unexpected to say the least and again the trailer sets it up to look like Steve is actually holding that. But come on, it's not Steve's hand but rather a woman's. Could it be Natasha holding it? Is it foreshadowing Cap's death? 5. 'Endgame' has been mentioned not once but twice before 'Avengers: Infinity War' is still fresh in everyone's mind and so are Dr. Strange's words foreshadowing the title of this movie - “We're in the end game now.” But, it has been referenced in the Avengers movie preceding Infinity War as well. Yep, Tony said the line “That up there, that's the endgame” in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.
  20. Having graced the silver screen with his par excellence acting skills and essaying strong, meaningful roles in films and web series, this year has been a momentous one for Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The man charmed his way into the hearts of his audience with his stellar deliveries on-screen, and there is much more - bigger and better things - in store for him in the upcoming new year. After his entertaining performance as Gaitonde in 'Sacred Games' and solid portrayal of writer-poet Saadat Hasan Manto in Nandita Das' latest creation, Nawazuddin is yet again getting ready to star in a biopic. © Instagram Releasing early next year, Nawazuddin is set to play the role of founder and former Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray, in his upcoming movie 'Thackeray' directed by Abhijit Panse and written by Shiv Sena politician Sanjay Raut. While we have already watched and admired the actor's superior acting in the movie's teaser which was released last month, it is however this active snippet circulating on social media that's gaining a lot of attention. In a latest clip from the movie, Nawazuddin is seen making his way to his car in all his political glory. However, it is the uncanny resemblance of the actor to Bal Thackeray that's got the viewers lose their shit. Take a look at the clip here: View this post on Instagram A glimpse into #Thackeray starring @nawazuddin._siddiqui #Bollywood #ZoomTV #Nawaz #NawazuddinSiddiqui #Video #Biopic #Film A post shared by Zoom TV (@zoomtv) on Dec 16, 2018 at 10:26pm PST Wrapped in saffron and adorned by iconic Bal Thackeray paraphernalia, the resemblance between the two men is indeed massive. The movie promises an insight into the life and rise of one of Maharashtra's greatest political leader, and it is safe to say that Nawazuddin seem pretty close to doing justice to the magnanimous personality.
  21. "Akalmand to tum ho, nakalmand ban sakte ho ya nahi?" says Emraan Hashmi to a student, in this gripping trailer of 'Cheat India' that dropped today. And from that very point, everyone who is watching the trailer knows where the movie is headed. © T-Series In our growing years, we were taught never to cheat in exams. As we grew up and entered class 12th and then college, cheating became a fad that got everyone addicted to it. The 2 minute video delves into that dark side of the Indian education system. © T-Series The trailer shows Emraan Hashmi's character hiring a brilliant student to sit in the engineering entrance exams on behalf of other students. What started out as a successful scamming strategy with the two men filling their pockets and of the needy, soon lands them in a pool of troubles with no exit out of it. 'Cheat India' is being directed by Soumik Sen, and produced by the makers of 'Neerja' and 'Tumhari Sulu'. Emraan Hashmi looks highly impressive in the trailer of the movie that is releasing on January 25, 2019.
  22. Seems like Priyanka Chopra is not the only one who is going to get married to her wonderful 'pardesi' boyfriend. The lovely Freida Pinto, who has been based in Hollywood for many years now, might also be getting hitched soon to her photographer boyfriend Tory Cran. Taking to social media, the beautiful actress recently shared a mushy picture of herself with Cran.

  23. Samsung recently announced its foldable smartphone, however, the South-Korean giant did not specify the pricing of the upcoming smartphone. The smartphone was shown off at last week's Developer Conference where the phone was concealed with a strong silhouette — only showing the Infinity Flex display. © YouTube The foldable smartphone will basically be a tablet that can be folded into a phone or the other way around. It as a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED “cover display” that can turn into a 7.3-inch Super AMOLED “main display” © Youtube Analysts suggest that components for the new phone will start shipping from suppliers to Samsung early November. Samsung will be able to manufacture the device in time and make it available for consumer next year. Having said that, some analysts have reported that the price of the foldable smartphone will not be in the same price range as the company's other flagships. The foldable smartphone is expected to retail for 2 million won which roughly translates to $1,765. That's very expensive as compared to other foldable devices. Samsung is expected to officially unveil the final smartphone at 2019 CES and wants to grab the title of the “world's first” before its main competitor, Huawei, delivers a similar phone before them.

  24. Some people decide to be a bodybuilder and some people are destined to be one. Ronnie Coleman was a destined bodybuilder. The greatest the stage has ever seen. Arguably the greatest bodybuilder of all times, Ronnie won the Mr. Olympia a record 8 times, earning the title of the 'King' and the 'GOAT' of bodybuilding. Starting lifting at the age of 13 as a hobby with his main interest being rugby, Ronnie saw almost instant growth while training with weights. Soon, there was history being written. Ronnie rose to global fame with the sheer size and mass he brought to the stage, setting a new benchmark for Mass Monster era. Ronnie weighed 130-135 Kg on stage and 145-150 Kg during the off-season. He trained with moderate volume and high intensity. Ronnie believed in lifting heavy free weights. And by heavy, we mean really heavy! Weights That Will Make Any Grown Man Cry © YouTube In his prime, Ronnie moved an insane amount of iron which included 363 Kg Squats for 2 Reps, 1045 Kg Leg Press for 4 Reps, 365 Kg Deadlift for 2 Reps and 100 Kg dumbbell presses. He is surely the strongest Mr. Olympia ever. Ronnie contributes these heavy loads to his huge yet dense physique. How All The Heavy Lifting Came Back To Hurt King Ron © YouTube The weights, which built his body, also began to deteriorate it. Soon after retirement, Ronnie's spine and joints gave up almost entirely. This was because of through and through heavy lifting. Presently, he has gone through as many as 10 major surgeries, including spinal fusion, disc decompressions, and multiple hip replacements. Even before his first surgery in 2016, Ronnie did pay his dues to the gym by pushing 'Lite Weights' one more time. He was once asked that if he could go back in time, would he change anything about his training? He replied- “I would do 4 reps of 363 Kg Squat instead of 2.” The Final Heartbreak View this post on Instagram Two days after surgery and it's a miracle that I can walk. Normally I'm on my way to rehab so they can help me to learn to walk again. This is the best I've felt after my last 3 surgeries. God is truly blessing me this time around because he know that I definitely need the inspiration because lately I've been semi-depressed after all my surgeries. This is so amazing and I know some of you guys praying for me has a lot to do with this. I'm really in a state of shock because after the same results after the same surgery you kinda get use to being not able to walk and come to expect it. Thanks to each and everyone who prayed because it honestly and truly worked this time. God knows me way better than I know me and I'm overwhelmed with excitement and enjoyment. I am so much looking forward to seeing the day where no crutches or walkers is required. Hopefully that day comes sooner rather than later. #yeahbuddy #lightweightbaby #itstillaintnothingbutapeanut A post shared by Ronnie Coleman (@ronniecoleman8) on Sep 22, 2018 at 7:03pm PDT In a recent interview, King Ron gave a heartbreaking statement- that he might never be able to walk again. Ronnie blamed his surgeons for creating complications in his spinal operations. He added that he spent over 2 million dollars in just the last three surgeries and if the doctors wished, he would be walking long back. Ronnie Coleman's pure and raw passion for training has made him an inspirational figure, not just for bodybuilders but powerlifters, weightlifters and anyone who desires to get better at lifting.

  25. You may have thought that bullies only existed within the school compound, however, the behaviour and actions of your own boss at work suddenly trigger something in you, poking at the many invisible wounds left there by that another bully you encountered early on in life. Workplace bullying isn't something we hear about very often in India, mainly because most of the people getting bullied mistake their bosses to be tough instead of a bully. However, regardless of whether you may have a bully for a boss or not, a survey by CareerBuilder.in has revealed that about 55% of Indian workers have been bullied at work. © Yash Raj Films If that's news to you, then you might want to know that, in a 2013 study of the ITES-BPO sector for bullying in Indian workplace, undertaken by Premilla D'Cruz and Charlotte Rayner, it was seen that 44.3% participants had been subjected to bullying, with 19.7% reporting the degree of bullying to be moderate and severe levels. Workplace bullying is real as many accounts of abuse and assault that are surfacing in the #MeToo movement. Such experiences often leave employees feeling physically and psychologically harassed, which further leads to inadequacy, insecurity and depression in severe cases. © Yash Raj Films In case you feel your boss doesn't seem like the kind of leader you'd want to learn from, makes you detest your work, questions your every move and pushes you to question your worth, then you might be facing a bully. Alternatively, here are some ways to identify one: 1. Constantly Criticises You A bullying boss is often abusive and constantly criticises your every move and decision. His/her criticisms are far from constructive and they seem to get a pleasure out of humiliating you in public. They will often blame you when things go awry and might also steal your ideas as their own. 2. Intimidating Rather Than Inspiring They will always find a way of maintaining their power and authority by constantly threatening you with consequences. In some cases, these go so far as being physical threats. © Yash Raj Films 3. Question Your Worth & Motivation Bullying bosses also like to pick at your opinions and ideas. They might also question your commitment and adequacy, by constantly disregarding your efforts and making you feel worthless. 4. Subverts Your Work Such bosses give you unrealistic deadlines and sabotage your projects by withholding information or permission, so that the chances of failure increases. They show no regard for the work that you may have carried out well either. 5. Hinders Your Growth Due to their constant meddling, your performance suffers and that only adds to your boss' pleasure. They will punish you for trivial errors and prevent your growth by holding up your training and promotions. © Yash Raj Films There, there. Don't fret and lose heart just yet. Here's what you can do about it. 1. Make Yourself Heard First of all, you must stand up for yourself. Confront your boss in a polite yet assertive manner and let him/her know you will not tolerate this abuse. Defend yourself and your position without being mean or disrespectful. 2. Show The Cards Don't just call him a bully up front, but rather, back your points with specific examples of how and when your boss offended/bullied you. Some bullying bosses may turn around and put the blame of it all on you. Recognise this fact, and have your counters ready. © Yash Raj Films 3. Confidence is Key Be confident about what you feel and what you're trying to say. Bullies love people who seem insecure and nervous, because they know such people can be controlled and manipulated. So be confident and discuss your concerns. 4. Continue To Work Hard No matter what happens, don't let your bosses distract you from doing your work. Continue to put in your efforts, and give a good output. Understand the things you can and cannot control. If things go too far, don't hesitate before seeking help from outside. Show the bullies you're not to be messed with!
