ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWith the fitness and health industry being on an uptrend, everyone is jumping on the wagon of eating healthy or picking healthier options for meals. While the idea of eating healthy is a very good thing, there is something you should know about the companies or marketers selling the so-called healthy foods. They market the hell out of foods that may not even be slightly healthy, or conducive or helpful to your goal of getting in shape. I like to call them 'fake' health foods. Here are some of them that you may be guilty of adding into your shopping cart every time you're at the mall or grocery store: 1) Packaged Fruit Juices © Pixabay These are often marketed as the health food/drink you should be consuming first thing in the morning to start your day. Just NO! If you ever flip the label and see the nutrition content, these so-called health drinks are loaded with sugar making them no different from the regular sodas or colas you may be drinking. And juicing, in general, is not a great way to consume your fruits. It just destroys all the fibre from fruit, which promotes satiety in consuming them. The store-bought ones are anyway not healthy in any sense. 2) Cereal Bars Or Snack Bars © Pixabay This was a tough competitor for the no. 1 spot on this list. Yes, a lot of brands have started selling cereal bars or health bars. They are often even marketed as meal bars or the best breakfast you can get in a small packet. Absolutely not! If you look at the label of it and compare it to a normal chocolate bar, you will see that both are almost the same. These so-called snack bars are just another sugar-loaded food marketed differently to you. Instead, you would be better off eating a chocolate bar, as it will not taste half as bad as these fake health bars. 3) Sugarfree Or Diet Biscuits © Pixabay Another fake one on the radar! The story with these are the same, even though sugar may not be an ingredient on the list, the fat content of these biscuits are twice as those of regular biscuits or cookies. And in the regular biscuits as well, sugar is not present in that high quantities. A surprising (or not) reality is that, by adding this additional fat into them, they are often higher in calories than the regular cookies and they taste terrible and are priced twice the normal cookies. 4) Fruit Yoghurt © Pixabay Oh, how could I? Right? I have nothing against yoghurt. Go for the low-fat, normal fat, full-fat one. Up to you. Yoghurt is actually a very good food to consume and if you pick any plain variety of it, you are actually picking good food there. Then comes the added flavour or the fruit yoghurts. All of a sudden, the yoghurt has lesser protein, more carbs, fats, and added sugar. These macros of the tasty-yet-healthy flag bearing foods are no different than that of an ice-cream. Beware of these so-called healthy foods as they may ruin your diets and never let you get in shape.

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsA lot of people claim that they can go to the ends of the Earth for their lover, you know, the “aasmaan se taare tod launga” type? As cliche as it might sound, some girls do get flattered by such passionate proclamations, but imagine if you happen to witness something of the sort (though, of course, not to an equivalent degree of similarity but equally hatke), and also be unintentional and weirdly connected to the entire episode, how would that make you feel? Something very similar happened to all those girls at the University of Calgary in Canada who went by the name 'Nicole'. On a regular college day, 246 Nicole(s) who were enrolled in the University of Calgary received a mass email from a university freshman named Carlos Zetina. © Twitter In the mail, he stated that his message was intended for the Nicole, who he had met at the campus bar the previous night, who was from Holland, who probably thought Nietzsche was depressing and who had perhaps given him a wrong number by mistake, hence making it impossible for him to reach out to her again. This man just emailed EVERY SINGLE NICOLE AT U OF C bc he got given a fake number. We now have a FB group and plans for a Nicole hang out. Thanks Carlos xoxo pic.twitter.com/bRAT5sXRtV — Nicole Sparling (@irish_dancer66) September 7, 2018 Imagine landing yourself such an earnest and persistent guy who, we're hoping, has no skewed intentions. However, the email led to the coming together of a number of Nicole(s) from the mailing list and a mini meetup happened where all the other girls decided to help Zetina track down the actual Nicole. © Twitter They set up a Facebook group called 'Nicole From Last Night' and formed a 'Nicole network' to find the intended recipient of the email. Apparently, Zetina had written the mail to not appear like a guy who didn't bother to text back a girl after taking her number. Ah, well. It's the thought that counts right? At long last, the actual Nicole (who hadn't received the mass email) heard about the interesting developments from a fellow friend and responded on the group, stating that she was the girl Zetina was looking for and that he must have taken down a digit incorrectly in her number, which led to the entire situation. Well, all is well that ends well, right? Even Zetina wouldn't have imagined this would become so big a thing on social media.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAs a rule of life, no one, and I mean no one, should get a tattoo of their significant other's name ever. It almost never works out and then you're left with a constant reminder for life. Who would want that, especially after a breakup? So, here's a cautionary tale for every guy who's even considering getting a tattoo for their girlfriend. Sure, she'll find it romantic and stuff at the time, but just imagine breaking up and then being married to someone else, who spots that very romantic gesture you did for some other woman. What will she do? Beat you up, of course! That's exactly what a newly-married couple in Tamil Nadu just went through. What probably was supposed to be their honeymoon period turned into a literal nightmare for the husband, after his wife beat him up for having an ex's name tattooed. The 22-year-old wife was waiting at a bus stop with her 20-year-old husband when she noticed some other girl's name on his arm. (I mean, arms are a pretty visible area, she should've seen it before, but never mind, let's continue.) Okay, yes, what he did was stupid, but the wife's next step was not at all cool. Yes, you can be angry but beating up someone is never the answer, violence against anyone should be discouraged. But, she was so enraged that she ended up brutally beating him, that too in public. After a point, the husband even tried to run for his life and even feigned a heart attack, but nothing stopped her and her fists of rage. Some onlookers then took the couple to the police station, after first recording the incident, of course. A police officer revealed to TOI that this was the woman's second marriage. “After separating from her first husband, she and her child were staying with her parents. She had married the young man after a love affair,” the officer said.
This week, the team have been discussing the one thing they can not live without. Some found this a hard question to answer. What is the one thing you cannot live without? A tricky question for some. Could you pick just one thing? Brandon (Senior tech support and development) My family is my saving grace and escape, and even though they're (collectively) the ones typically causing me the most work I wouldn't trade them for anything. Mark H (Tech support) I believe my choice would have to be "good coffee". I can deal with no phone, even deal with no credit card. But no coffee? The horror.... the horror. (2 points for naming the reference). Marc S (Tech Support) For me, no matter how much I like my computer, and look around for my phone before I do so much as make a coffee, it would have to be speakers. Not because I have a decent set of speakers, and don't even have to be my own speakers, but something that can play music. Whether I'm doing tickets, developing, cleaning, driving, sat in my office or sat in a bar, its the one thing I cant do without. Rhett (Cloud Support) The question really has two answers, On the tech side, it would be my iPhone, I can do anything from it you can think of really and my go to device for communication of all sorts. In life in general, that's an easy one, "My children, they are the center of my life, and really all that matters is I have them by my side!" Matt (Senior Developer) The one "thing" means I don't have to say family or kids! So I definitely think it has to be my MacBook Pro. I switched from a traditional desktop set-up earlier in the year and haven't looked back. I like being able to pick up my MacBook and carry on working while out and about. When I'm home, I plug it up to my two external monitors and it performs as well as any desktop. Jennifer (Designer) My iPhone. There is no worse thing than leaving my house without being able to check my chat programs or to be able to play Pokemon Go. Daniel (Senior tech support and development) The nerd in me can't live without alfredapp to automate all the things! ( check out their great forum https://www.alfredforum.com ) And the two hours a day of free time I get, I couldn't be without my son and bike. Stuart (Senior tech support and development) I pretty much couldn't be without my laptop, I use it for everything from Gaming, Films to Work. Is there one thing that you can't be without? Let us know below!
