  1. We live in a world where times are changing at a rapid pace and most things around us are evolving as they should be. One of the things I am talking about is gender roles and the dynamic each gender role defines today. Gender has become a very translucent and a fluid concept in modern day India, especially amongst the new generation and the urban literates. Those who understand the concept of gender also understand there are no established norms and rules attached to it and the roles can be defined as per one's convenience. More men are taking over quintessential women roles in society. Be it becoming chefs and cooks to even learning an art form such as classical dancing, men are exceedingly becoming more flexible and letting their masculinity experience a different yet definitive stance or role altogether. © Pinterest One such thing that has emerged out of fluid gender roles is the concept of stay-at-home dads. A SAHD (stay-at-home-dad) is an embodiment of a housewife, while the working mother is out and about concentrating on her career. Now for those who think housewives are a dreary, archaic and a weak concept, they're noticeably wrong and I strongly disagree with them. My mother was a housewife and she took upon the task quite seriously. Since my dad was predominantly absent due to his job which made him travel a lot, she did the most difficult task and made it seem easy. Cooking an cleaning is not the only task of a housewife, I'll have you know, it's also structuring a life for all the other members who stay in the house, raising kids how they should be raised, heading the finances and paying the bills and running a fully-functional house with absolute perfection. © Pinterest When men exchange these roles with women and become house-husbands or SAHDs, they're enabling an empowered role for all the men, who want to understand what 'feminism' is all about or understand gender roles and how one isn't restricted to a particular type of gender identity, clearly. Now SAHds maybe different from house husbands. SAHDs sole responsibility is to take care of the children while running a house, whereas a house-husband may not have children to take care of and he does it willingly or works from home as a freelancer. A SAHD gives up his career to see his wife fulfil her career goals because she can't or doesn't want to leave her job but she can't dedicate time to her kid(s) as well. A SAHD steps up and takes responsibility for the situation and there's a really powerful role reversal there. So, in case you feel like you're headed in that direction or want to help your wife by working from home and running a house, the concept of stay-at-home-dads is quite awesome and here's why: (1) They Give Up Their Careers To Become SAHds The concept of a SAHD is that he stays at home with the kids and doesn't turn his back on fundamental responsibilities. Some working parents leave their kids in the care of nannies or at a reputed day-care while they go for work, while some want a familiar face around their kids at all times. This is when the mom or the dad take a considerate decision to quit their job and stay at home with the kids. If the dad makes the decision and wants his wife to stay at her job, then it's practically the best solution. It's not necessary the man needs to quit his job per say. He can freelance from home and take care of the kids and the house, simultaneously. © Pinterest (2) They Define New Gender Roles Back in the day, this concept would have been rather odd, but today it's not so strange anymore. Like mentioned above, gender roles are slowly changing and men and women alike are understanding and accepting the change. Stay-at-home dads are another example of changing gender roles and they're breaking barriers today, as more and more moms are heading to work and dads are taking up the responsibility of managing the kids and the household. © Pinterest (3) They Kill The Concept Of Patriarchy India has been botched with the rules of patriarchy since we can remember and patriarchy as a concept diminishes any stand equality can ever have in our society. What SAHDs do is break the even flow that patriarchy has formed and marginalise the concept of being an equal. With the absenteeism of mothers from the house during the day, the kids see their fathers emerge as the caretaker and instil ideas of nurturing within them. The kids learn equal responsibilities at a young age and they don't see the fathers as sole bread earners. They understand what a powerful role both men and women have in society and also understand the concept of being equal. © Pinterest (4) Children Learn A lot From their SAHDs Growing up with a male presence in the house, the kids learn a lot and understand masculinity is not just earning money and doing hard labour but also taking in responsibilities such as cooking, cleaning, taking care of their needs, dealing with bullies for them or even going to parent-teacher meetings. A boy growing up with his father at home will automatically learn to be kind and understanding toward women because he knows what it's like to be a woman. When he sees his wife work alone in the kitchen in the future, he will share her responsibility equally. Kids also learn that having a SAHD both genders can have a career, both genders can stay home and both genders can distribute responsibility equally and nothing is really defined. © Pinterest (5) The Father-Child Dynamic Is More Beneficial In most cases, kids usually look up to their fathers. This is also due to inherent gender roles. I remember I used to meet my father once in 6 months and was in awe of him when I was a child. Spending time with their sons or daughters at home and teaching them the ways of life is therapeutic for both the father and the child. Research suggests that kids between 7-30 months old respond more favourably to being picked up by their dads, than being picked up by their moms. Kids are also more likely to learn quickly from their dads, than their moms because fathers usually pose as an inspiration to most of them. Fatherhood comes to men only when they first see their child. Unlike mothers who feel maternal when the child is in their womb. When a man spends time with his kids he gets a keen knack of what it's like to be a father and learns a lot about his kids unlike dad's who spend all their life at work and miss out on the primitive years of their children. So, it's basically beneficial for both the child and the father. © Pinterest Stay-at-home dads have all our support because they're literally superheroes without capes! They accept gender identifies easily and don't worry about what society may feel about their roles. They do it because they love their family and we believe there is nothing to be ashamed of. Instead, it's a matter of pride that a man can endorse such a role and do it pretty well too!
  2. I don't know why, but a lot of people love seeing the pictures of how their favourite celebrities' houses look like from the inside. Maybe it just gives them the feeling of being more 'personal' with their beloved stars. Regardless, it's actually great to see how celebrities are living tbh. That is why Sidharth Malhotra gave everyone a virtual tour of his house, designed by none other than Gauri Khan. Wow, what a crossover, never expected it. Thank u for the lovely virtual tour Sid... the house is looking great in the video! #GauriKhanDesigns @S1dharthM pic.twitter.com/smd02KPbxj — Gauri Khan (@gaurikhan) November 5, 2018 It's a pretty cool house, not gonna lie, but there's a very important part of the video that needs to be noted. Did you see that really cool hammock towards the end? Yep, this one. It looks really nice there, right? Yep, but there's one person who doesn't like it one bit. That hammock in the video is mine!!! U guys stole it!!by the way house looks lovely..but the hammock..damn! https://t.co/51H1gJ9HDq — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) November 5, 2018 Oh no, don't steal SRK's hammock, people! Seriously though, just banter between celebrities on Twitter is such a nice thing to see. Sid, in turn, was also quick to reply with an invitation and a pun. Hey Great taste @iamsrk ð“swing” by Anytime ! thanks https://t.co/eDmfpnwcL5 — Sidharth Malhotra (@S1dharthM) November 6, 2018 Side note – his new bachelor pad is pretty cool, who wouldn't want a house like that? An inside look into Sid's house... Simple and stylish. Feels warm and inviting. Even without all the little things usually seen in family homes. It's distinctive masculine look is what is most appealing. #GauriKhanDesigns @S1dharthM pic.twitter.com/a5Pk4hBPAh — Gauri Khan (@gaurikhan) November 6, 2018
  3. Arguably one of the best batsmen in modern-day cricket, Virat Kohli has been busy terrorising opposition bowlers and shattering batting records across the globe. For a man who currently seems to be in the form of his life, Kohli recently notched up another iconic milestone when he became the fastest to reach 10,000 ODI runs. While a lot of batsmen have already begun following Kohli's training and code of ethics to hone their own skills, only a few can actually boast of beating the Delhi batsman to set a new batting record - something Pakistan's Babar Azam managed to achieve recently. ICYMI: Babar Azam broke Virat Kohli's record to become the fastest to 1000 T20I runs https://t.co/qBMhTxk17w pic.twitter.com/INplhnlaF1 — ESPNcricinfo (@ESPNcricinfo) November 5, 2018 During the third and final T20I between Pakistan and New Zealand in Dubai, the right-hander became the fastest player to reach 1,000 runs in T20Is. The Pakistani batsman achieved the feat in the 12th over when he punched the ball to the outfield for a single. Azam brought up his 1,000 T20I runs in a mere 26 innings, one knock quicker than Kohli, who held the record previously. If his recent batting performances saw him become a fan-favourite, Azam's adulation for his role model Kohli won him more respect. After Pakistan's emphatic win, Azam said: "Virat Kohli is my role model and I always try to follow his style of batting. The best thing about Kohli is the confidence with which he comes on the crease. He has hunger (for runs) and starts his every innings as if he achieved nothing in the innings before". ð½ï¸ @babarazam258 interview on reaching 1000 T20I runshttps://t.co/Cez4IikGUx — PCB Official (@TheRealPCB) November 5, 2018 This was not for the first time Azam has spoken about Kohli's role in his game. “I do not just copy Virat Kohli, but I really follow him. I dream of becoming like him. Some people compare me with Virat, while there's no comparison as I am just in the beginning. I feel that I cannot be just like him, but it can be closer to his instinct of playing,” Azam once had said in an interview. Opting to bat, Pakistan lost opener Fakhar Zaman (11) early on after Lockie Ferguson struck for New Zealand. But, despite losing his opening partner, Azam held the fort for his side with a match-winning knock of 79 runs. He was also part of the pivotal 94-run partnership with Mohammad Hafeez (53*) for the second wicket that allowed Pakistan to post a competitive total of 166 runs. 17th win in 2018 ðð¼ 11th consecutive series win ð Champions ð#PAKvNZ pic.twitter.com/6Oyv4AQapA — PCB Official (@TheRealPCB) November 4, 2018 In reply, the Kiwis suffered a massive batting collapse as they lost their last eight wickets for a mere 23 runs. Skipper Kane Williamson (60) tried to keep his side in the hunt, but Shadab Khan (3-30), Imad Wasim (2-28) and Waqas Maqsood (2-21) all combined together to eke out a 47-run win for Pakistan. Having won the first T20I by two runs and the second by six wickets, Pakistan had already wrapped up the three-match series. But, while many would have expected the Kiwis to put up a fight in the final T20I, Williamson and his men once again left everyone disappointed with an ordinary display in the batting department.
  4. AirPods have been a huge success for Apple and it seems like the company is bringing a brand new version of the wireless earphones soon. According to trademark filings and reports, the new AirPods will have more advanced features than the current generation. The filings were made from Hong Kong and Europe a few days ago, where new details about the next AirPods were leaked. © MensXP The filings were spotted by Patently Apple and the next version of AirPods are expected to have health-related features. The new features are expected to track and monitor heart rate via the biometric sensors inbuilt into the wireless earphones. The filing detailed the featured it may cover i.e.: “namely, health, fitness, exercise, and wellness sensors, monitors, speakers and displays for measuring, displaying, tracking, reporting, monitoring, storing, and transmitting biometric data, heart rate, body movement, and calories burned; hearing aids; medical apparatus and instruments; apparatus for use in medical analysis; testing apparatus for medical purposes; pulse meters; thermometers for medical purposes; spirometers [medical apparatus]; dental apparatus; heart rate monitoring apparatus; earplugs [ear protection devices]; feeding bottles; non-chemical contraceptives; hair prostheses; plaster bandages for orthopaedic purposes; suture materials.” © MensXP The new filing also mentions that there will be a mechanism to transmit biometric data such as heart rate, body movement and calories burned. According to the report, the AirPods will work closely with other Apple products such as the Apple Watch. We aren't entirely sure when Apple will launch the new AirPods, however, these filings make it extremely exciting thanks to the new features. There are other reports that suggest AirPods may also support noise-cancelling features which is a highly requested feature by AirPods users. Source: Patently Apple

  6. It's that time of the year, when every day seems to be festive. Ayushmann Khurrana clearly believes it, and stepped out wearing something that looked like his new year outfit - even though there's still a solid two months till New Year's Eve. Check it out. © Viral Bhayani The super quirky, bold vinyl record silk bomber jacket from H&MXMoschino is a piece that looks like it's tailor-made for a retro disco party. What other piece can do justice to a lit New Year's Eve party? © Instagram/Isha Bhansali Let's focus on the shoes now. High tops are in anyway - add to that a badass element of structured golden studs, and it will surely turn heads. These black beauties from Jimmy Choo are the epitome of cool party shoes. © Viral Bhayani We like how he has kept the base of the outfit black - with a simple black T-shirt and black trousers. When you have a jacket this statement, it's wise to keep the rest understated. © Instagram/Isha Bhansali We totally approve of his accessory game too. The clear glasses with white frames, and that beard ombré are a perfect fit for this edgy AF aesthetic. © Viral Bhayani Good going, Ayushmann. You never disappoint us.
  7. Just when you thought Apple was done for the year when the company announced its new iPhones, the Cupertino giant unveiled new hardware last night in Brooklyn, New York. Apple unveiled refreshed hardware that included a new iPad Pro, MacBook Air and a Mac mini. Here's a look at everything Apple launched last night: Brand New MacBook Air © BCCL For people who are looking to upgrade to a new MacBook, Apple announced a new MacBook Air after years. The 2018 edition now has a 13.30inc Retina display, Touch ID, 50 percent narrower bezels and Apple's new butterfly keyboard. The MacBook Air now has stereo speakers and a 20 percent larger trackpad. In terms of ports, the MacBook Air has two USB-C ports and a headphone jack. In terms of specifications, the new MacBook Air has 8th Gen intel dual-core CPU and up to 16GB of RAM. In terms of storage, the laptop is outfitted with a 1.5TB SSD. The new laptop will cost Rs 1,14,900 in India for the 8GB RAM configuration. Spanking New iPad Pro © Apple Apple also updated its tablet lineup with a brand new iPad Pro. The new tablet now has Face ID support which works in both portrait or landscape mode. The home button is also now gone and the bigger iPad has a 12.9-inch retina display. However, the body is smaller and thinner than its predecessor thanks to the smaller bezels. The new iPad Pro also have the same gestures as the iPhone XS, XS MAX and X. The new iPad is powered by Apple's A12X Bionic Chip which enables it to be 35 percent faster than the previous model. Apple claims the new iPad Pro will have “1,000 times” faster graphics and is capable of delivering all-day battery life. The iPad Pro has a USB-C port and can also be used to charge your phone.

  8. Just a few days ago, we reported that the Department of Telecommunication (DoT) has asked Internet Service Providers (ISPs) across the country to ban a list of porn websites after a directive from the High Court of Uttarakhand came through. The list includes more than 800 websites, and Jio was the among the first ISPs to put the ban in action. People are scrambling to get their fair share of porn by accessing these blocked sites via a VPN (Virtual Private Network). But Pornhub has made it even easier, they've just created a mirror website on a new domain -- pornhub.net. Like I've previously said, the attempt to block porn is futile as the ISPs need to manually block a domain, and a general category of "porn" websites cannot be just blocked. In response to Pornhub getting censored and blocked in India, our fans there can now fully access the site at https://t.co/xWrwXOE5sX — Pornhub ARIA (@Pornhub) October 26, 2018 The current list has 827 domain or URLs, and the site operators will simply change the address or create numerous mirror sites. "In response to Pornhub getting censored and blocked in India, our fans there can now fully access the site at Pornhub.net," the company said on Twitter. "This is apparent by the fact that they only banned large sites like Pornhub's, and didn't block thousands of risky porn sites that may contain illegal content," VP Corey Price of Pornhub said in a statement. © Reuters The High Court decided to ban these websites after reports of a gangrape in Dehradun where the perpetrators were schoolchildren allegedly influenced by porn clips. Back in 2015, the DoT had directed ISPs to block more than 800 websites, including Pornhub that is legal in the US, for showing porn or face the risk of losing their licenses. But the last attempt never really materialized, obviously. So far not all internet service providers have blocked the popular porn websites with the same zeal. On many networks in India, Pornhub remains accessible. But it seems that Jio has been most thorough in applying the ban. © Google Trends It isn't a huge task for the authorities to add up the new domain as well in the ban list, but users still continue accessing these websites via a VPN. For those who aren't aware, a VPN encrypts the connection from your device to the server and acts as a middle person in the process. Hence, even if you are trying to access a website that is blocked in India, the VPN requests the data from another region like Singapore or the US and then transfers the content to you. According to Google Trends, searches for a VPN solution have gone up drastically in the last few days. The ban has been brutally mocked on social networking sites and it's not surprising. Pornhub says the people of India are among “largest connoisseurs of adult content,” which is also quite apparent from the company's 2017 insights, where India is listed as the third country in terms of traffic.
  9. Last Sunday was probably one of the most happening Sundays we've seen in recent time, and the credit goes to Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and 'Koffee With Karan 6'. The first credit goes to Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone who made their sudden wedding announcement on social media and gave their fans a reason to rejoice. Second, to Karan Johar and his controversial but highly entertaining show, 'Koffee With Karan' where he grills his guests to winkle secrets out of them. View this post on Instagram The koffee boys in the house!!! Wild whacky and beyond! @akshaykumar @ranveersingh @starworldindia @hotstar #koffeewithkaran A post shared by Karan Johar (@karanjohar) on Oct 6, 2018 at 10:05am PDT After hosting two of the most gorgeous and powerful actresses (Deepika and Alia Bhatt), Karan Johar is now all set to welcome Bollywood's OG Khiladi Akshay Kumar and Bollywood's livewire Ranveer Singh. While the first episode was all about Ranbir Kapoor and some secrets being revealed, this episode is going to be far more exciting and crazier than that and the promos have already proved that. We can totally imagine the two actors singlehandedly bring the whole house down in the next episode that will air tomorrow on Star World at 9 PM.

So, tapping into our inner Karan Johar, we've decided to play a 'Rapid Fire' game with our audience. We will caption these pictures and so will you. 1.

  10. For a country that has been blessed with prolific wrestlers over the years, India continues to find talent and nurture them in a bid to flex its muscles in the wrestling domain globally. We've seen numerous Indian wrestlers proving their mettle internationally, bagging coveted medals and making the country proud. After an impressive outing at the Asian Games last month, the Indian wrestlers were expected to carry on their fine form in the ongoing Wrestling World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. In what was arguably a brilliant start for India's campaign, Bajrang Punia produced a hard-fought silver-medal finish in the men's 65kg freestyle category. While the coveted silver made him the first Indian wrestler to win two medals at the World Championships (his last being a bronze in the 2013 edition), it also set the tone for his fellow compatriots to follow in his footsteps. But, India had to wait for a while for its next medal at the tournament. © Twitter/@wrestling The likes of Vijay (55kg), Gaurav Sharma (63kg), Kuldeep Malik (72kg) and Harpreet Singh (82kg) all crashed out after losing their Qualification rounds in the Greco-Roman competition. There was no respite in the women's category as medal favourites Sakshi Malik and Ritu Phogat both missed out on securing a medal for their country. While Rio Olympics bronze medallist Sakshi yet again failed to reach the medal round at a big-ticket event following her loss in the repechage round to Hungary's Marianna Sastin, Ritu missed out on an opportunity to emulate her elder sisters Geeta and Babita after her loss in the bronze medal bout against Ukraine's Oksana Livach. After the early exits of the two women wrestlers, it was eventually a 24-year-old who gave India its second medal at the ongoing World Championships. Pooja Dhanda became the first woman wrestler to win a medal in this year's competition following her bronze-medal finish in the women's 57kg freestyle category in Budapest. Delivering one of the best performances of her career, Pooja opened up a 4-1 lead with a throw on counter and then consolidated the lead with a roll to make it 6-1 after the end of the first period. The Indian wrestler conceded a point for a step out and then gave another for the same later in the bout, but she came back strong with another four-point throw to take a 10-2 lead. Handed two cautions for the step outs, Pooja knew she couldn't back anymore which probably explained her attacking strategy in the later stage of the bout. Her opponent did try to fight back with a takedown and a couple of push outs to reduce the gap, but the Indian wrestler proved too good to eventually secure a remarkable 10-7 win over 2017 European champion Grace Jacob Bullen. Pooja Dhanda wins Bronze Medal in the #WorldWrestlingChampionships in #Budapest. Dhanda defeated Grace Bullen of Norway 10-7.

  11. Iron Man is one of the strongest superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Thanos is one of the most powerful villains, so obviously there's a stark difference between them right? Nope, these two characters are apparently more similar than we ever even thought about and a new fan theory is here to prove it. In case you didn't know, there was a previous theory that claimed that the real villain of MCU is actually the mind stone, and this new theory is taking a cue from that and is trying to explain a connection between Tony Stark and the Mad Titan. The theory basically claims that both of them have been cursed by the mind stone. A theorist with the username Broseph2576 tried to give a lengthy explanation for the theory saying, “First off, props to whoever posted the original 'mind stone is the true villain' theory....it got me thinking. From the bonus A3 features, we know that in response to Tony asking, “how do you know my name?” Thanos replies “I know your soul...it is much like mine, cursed with knowledge”. Great line, but I don't think Thanos and Tony are necessarily “cursed with knowledge” per se; rather, I think that they are both suffering from some intense PTSD inflicted by the mind stone.” We already know that Tony will play a crucial role in defeating Thanos, as Dr. Strange basically told everyone that towards the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. There is only one possible outcome where Thanos will actually be defeated and Tony Stark needed to be alive for that, which is why Dr. Strange gave up the time stone and looks like the disintegration of half of the universe was also unavoidable. The theory went on, “You could argue that the 'endgame' actually started at the beginning of 'Avengers: Age of Ultron', when Wanda showed Tony a vision of the dead Avengers and an unstoppable alien invasion. Tony's vision, which directly led to Ultron, the disbanding of the Avengers and his inability to move on with his life with Pepper, emanated from the mind stone. In an 'Inception'-y kind of way, it instilled in Tony a drive to “do anything to make things right” which, in the most basic sense, was to prevent the outcome he witnessed and believed would come true. But his actions were premised on a “vision” that seemed more an induced hallucination (even the movie sequences looked all 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds') rather than a true revelation of the future. Regardless, it changed the paradigm for Tony personally and would impact Earth and its population forever.” It is possible that even Thanos witnessed a similar vision, which made him do what he did. “I think it could be altogether likely that at some point, prior to the MCU timeline, Thanos was shown a similar vision - one where his beautiful home planet had withered away and the population of Titan starving, suffering & dying. Thanos would, in that light, be similarly driven to “do anything to make things right” which, if fuelled by the same fear and irrationality that drove Tony to create Ultron, could otherwise explain his moral ambivalence to the atrocities he and his followers had been committing in the names of 'life' and 'survival'.” The theory ends with, “As a result of these visions, both Tony and Thanos would become self-fulfilling prophesies of their worst fears - Tony's obsession with protection of Earth could have very easily resulted in the total extinction of the human race; Thanos' obsession with ensuring that what happened (or what he saw happen) on Titan would never happen again, ultimately led him to murder trillions during the snappening.” Well, it's highly unlikely that this is spot on but it seems quite plausible, tbh. Actually, anything can happen and we all have to wait till May 2019 to find out. Right now, we're not the only ones who don't know what exactly will happen in the next Avengers movie, as it turns out that people making the movie are changing and reshooting everything, or rather were doing it while shooting. Talking about this, Mark Ruffalo said, “Which we don't even know what it's gonna be yet. We're not just doing reshoots, we're going to finish the movie, which we really didn't get to finish totally when we left it last year ... I don't even know that they really know exactly. Some of it is happening while we're there. It's pretty amazing. And we'll shoot some stuff and a few days later, come back and reshoot it, cause we wanna take it in another direction. It's a very living organism, even as we approach it being a locked picture, we're still working on it.” Okay, now I honestly don't want to wait till next year for the movie. Can Tony and Scott teach me their time travel ways that they are probably using in the movie? That would be great, thanks.
  12. Let's be real, 'Koffee with Karan' is probably the best talk show in the country and Karan Johar is one of the best hosts ever. It's a show that even those people who don't really watch Bollywood movies or don't care about Bollywood celebrities would thoroughly enjoy, because it's that funny and sassy. And, the best part is that it's great to see all the celebrities let their hair down, joke around and have fun and show all the fans a side of their personality that they don't usually see. Moreover, KJo really knows the real questions to ask and give people a confirmation about a lot of rumours about their favourite celebs. Since the new season of 'Koffee with Karan' is just a little over a day away, we thought we would have a little throwback and talk about some of the funniest episodes of the talk show that have aired till now: The Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt & Varun Dhawan Episode This was the episode that was haunting Alia Bhatt for a long, long time. Everything that followed after Alia shouted out Prithviraj Chauhan as India's President during the question-answer round was so funny. From Alia being labelled as a bimbo and getting trolled for months to Alia trolling herself – and redeeming herself – in the best way possible. Look at this way, we wouldn't have that hilarious AIB sketch with Alia if it wasn't for this episode. The Nargis Fakhri & Frieda Pinto Episode These two women are as funny as they are gorgeous and together, both of them gave one of the most hilarious 'Koffee with Karan' episodes. From answering all the questions with total honesty and without any kind of censor, they both really made sure all the viewers got to see a side of their personality that's often hidden. And personally, I was completely indifferent towards Nargis, but since watching this, I remember her as the crazy, funny actress who doesn't have any filter which is a great thing to be remembered by. The Ranbir Kapoor & Ranveer Singh Episode What do you get when you put together two of the biggest, most sought-after actors of our time on one couch? A great time, for sure. Okay, I didn't actually intend it be sexual, I just meant that both of these men, with almost the same name, gave one hell of a 'Koffee with Karan' episode. The Katrina Kaif & Anushka Sharma Episode Kat is so damn funny, who even knew before this? I didn't for sure. And, both Katrina and Anushka actually got on so well, and not just because both of them are anti-social. Also, because they precisely summed up adult friendships. And, how can we forget the Arjun Kapoor cameo and the truth about the 'I hate Katrina club'. The Priyanka Chopra Episode Priyanka Chopra came alone on the show and proved she doesn't need anyone else to be there to make it more interesting. From openly talking about anything and everything, to doing shots – koffee shots – it was a fun episode from the start till the end. And, here's hoping we'll see Nick Jonas make his 'Koffee with Karan' debut this year with his to-be-wife. The Sonam Kapoor & Deepika Padukone Episode An old one, but still a very memorable one. Sonam Kapoor, as it is, is known for saying whatever is on her mind and when you add Deepika to the mix, it was just no filter, no holding back. So many laughs, so much shade being thrown around, they both really made a good team.
  13. Is Marvel really trying to **** with all the fans by preparing different first trailers for 'Avengers 4' in case leaks happen? Or are some evil genius fans taking advantage of everyone's desperation to know literally anything about the next Avengers movie, and are making up different trailer descriptions to mess with everyone? No one knows right now, but we're still excited about any new information about the movie, even if it ultimately turns out to be untrue. Just a few days ago, we got a description for the trailer of 'Avengers 4' and while we were still trying to wrap our heads around the Captain America and Iron Man reunion, and the possible time travel, there's a new description that has been leaked now and it's even more detailed. To give some credibility to this one, it was apparently leaked by the same Redditor who leaked that Red Skull would be a part of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. This person, however, made sure to stress upon the fact that it's not exactly the final trailer, the description is based on a rough cut. Here's a scene by scene breakdown of this possible trailer. “Thanos' voice: 'My Destiny is not yet fulfilled...' A shot of a battered Tony, looks as though he's still on Titan, confused. 'Greater threats arise to undo the balance I lost everything to achieve... and I.... will not... be undone.' Shot of Banner and Cap with Vision on a table fades in and out... Shot of Quill's ship lifting off. Fades. Tony: 'Fury was right.' He's talking to someone out of view in some type of normal house. This MIGHT be Aunt May, he's glossy eyed, and the dialogue is spoken over the prior screen, not actually what's he's saying. 'He was right since day 1...' black screen.” Wait, Vision? How? Also, will we have an emotional scene with Tony telling Aunt May what happened to Peter? No, I'm not ready for that. “Tony: scene of him in some sort of garage-looking place. In front of 3 different suits, they seem pretty normal? None are the one that was leaked, he has the housing unit in his hands. 'I'll do whatever it takes so that never happens again...' black screen Tony in SHIELD gear. He's walking towards the camera with soldiers behind him. Shot of Antman standing in the Quantum Realm. Cuts to him surrounded by 3 tardigrades. He's running, then stops at a green portal type thing. Fades to a shot of Scott in street clothes. Gray shirt jeans and a jean jacket. Scott: 'I think... I might have a way to help.' Not sure who he's speaking to. Or if this is even the real dialogue lol. Doesn't look like it matches.” How did Scott get out? “Shot of an empty throne in Wakanda, various shots of Shuri, M'Baku, and Okoye. Black screen. 'This was NOT our fight...' Shuri or Okoye couldn't tell. Screen still black. Shot of Cap standing arms crossed with Rhodey, Rocket and Thor, in a room that looks like it's still Wakanda. Cap: 'We need to make this right...' Banner: 'Cap we don't even know where to start... Thanos is gone. He won.' Thor: 'Well... then we had better get to work'” Good for you, Thor. Yes, get to work. “Shot panning down slowly of the pager Fury had in someone's hands. I'm almost 100% certain it's in Tony's hands. A shot of Rhodey suiting up very briefly, from the knees up to the crotch area lol, it's not nanotech, but looks more or less exactly how Starlords mask materializes with a Thor voiceover: 'Are you ready for this?' Rocket: 'Well... if I'm not...' pause. Black Fades in to Rocket, music silences: 'What more could I lose?' Bifrost shot w/ Thor, War machine, and Rocket.” Okay, this is all over the place now. “Various shots. Gauntlet, still damaged, being reached for, shot of Nebula (looks like the same place Tony was earlier), and then shot of Banner. Black screen. Thor: 'We need an army to stand against Thanos...' shot of Thanos putting on armour. Yours is the only one formidable enough to give us a chance... a shot of Thanos wielding a big double-edged sword. 'So I ask of you...'” Thanos has a sword now? Why? “Various shots of Black Widow, brief shot of Tony's suit, Caps new chest piece (chainmail!!!) and banner putting on a purple skintight suit and a button up over it In front of a mirror. Fades to Thor, 'Will you help us?' More various shots, including a broken gauntlet on the ground as someone (clearly Thanos) is walking away... same aesthetic and scenery as the one when it's being reached for. (I think he throws it on the ground??) 'It's been a while since I've been to Earth...' Music is getting louder as it crescendos to a shot of Captain Marvel's chest panning up to her face. The scenery behind her almost looks like Xandar. Because it can't be Earth (that would make no sense) but it's blue skies and clouds outside a window... Captain Marvel: 'Let's go.' Shot of her flying towards something angrily, she cocks back a punch, eyes glowing, flames surround her. She punches, then [Title Card] as Avengers theme plays.” So, Thor was asking Captain Marvel for help? “Post theme cutaway stinger: Rocket is in a rolling chair looking at a few computer screens, has on this cool ass white bodysuit. Rhodey: 'I've seen a lot of crazy things, but a talking Raccoon? (rocket looks up at him from chair) Definitely tops them all...' Rocket, going from Rhodey back to the computer screens sarcastically: 'Boy, if I had a unit every time I heard that one' cuts to a shot of Thor smiling with an off queue HaHaHa.” It's great to see that Thor still loves his 'rabbit'! This trailer description was also exciting but I'm still hoping for the previous one to be true because one, it was a Captain America and Iron Man reunion and we all deserve that and second, it also had Loki and time travel and gave us hope that everyone will come back after being disintegrated. But, at the end of the day, what happens in the trailer is not as important as actually getting a real trailer right now and hopefully, we don't have to wait for long.
  14. After years of stalking aka following the maestro of all things trendy- Virat Kohli, on social media, we know one thing for sure– never expect the ordinary from him. He has more than often stunned us both on and off-the-field! And he isn't about to stop anytime soon. In a series of probably many firsts, Virat Kohli laid another maverick off-the-field when he joined hands with PUMA to turn shoe designer and design a classic sneaker for his fans. View this post on Instagram 100% classic, 100% me! And it's finally here!

What do you guys think? ð #one8 @PumaIndia @PUMA A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Oct 18, 2018 at 12:17am PDT Often spotted flaunting his love for sneakers, Virat sure knows what he wants. Exploring their PUMA Basket collection, Virat set out to make the most of the opportunity, engaging in long conversations with the designers, adding his unique style to the design and creating a mix of comfort and style that suits him the best. Minimal and stylish, the captain of the Indian cricket team made sure that the sneakers bore more than a few elements inspired by cricket in the design. For instance, the stitched details on the kicks are inspired by the seam on a cricket ball. PUMA Opting for neutral colours that perfectly team up with every outfit, he kept the variants as simple monochromes – black and white! While the translucent outsole of the sneakers has a futuristic look, the leather upper has a retro vibe. That's a classic Virat move, mixing styles to create a unique piece. PUMA Designed by Virat for himself and his fans across, the Basket Classic one8 (available in two different colours) is one that you cannot miss. These trendy kicks are absolutely wardrobe goals for any cricket fanatic – 100% classic, 100% Virat!

  16. Not everyone is a fan of comedy-drama, there are some of us who live on shows which knock the wind out of us with their unimaginable storyline. We long for plots that keep us on the edge of our couch, for well-charted out characters that keep our eyes glued to the screen, and the twists that keep us coming back for more, again and again. This sounds like the perfect plan for the long weekend to us. You know, the ones who prefer to stay at home and chill, rather than leave the comforts of our home to appear. If you are just like us, and totally believe in taking your mind for a spin when given the chance, then these 5 thrilling web series will prove to be the best way of spending the long weekend. 1. Sense8 - Netflix This is one hell of a series, that's wrapped in the most meaty plot. The story follows the lives of eight strangers (Sensates) who suddenly begin to experience each other's lives through the power of telepathy. Each one of them is located in a different city around the world, but their lives are connected to a point where they can not only read each other's thoughts but can also access each other's knowledge, language and skills. The gripping story unveils the many dangers they are set to face, and if or how they fight their demons. 2. Absentia - Prime Video The journey of an FBI agent who was on an official mission to hunt down a notorious serious killer, but goes missing instead. When she is found after six years she doesn't remember any details about the time she was gone. From the loss of her memory to finding herself wound up in a new series of murders, this quick-paced drama manages to keep you on your toes at all times. Your guesses at solving the mystery, and putting the pieces of the puzzle together, will always fail. Yet, you'll find yourself moving on to the next episode. 3. Altered Carbon - Netflix Set in the far away future, this story is sure to test your brain cells and spike up your endorphin levels. The basic premise of the story is that people's consciences have been downloaded to form stacks, which can be shifted to new bodies or “sleeves”. The first season begins with Takeshi Kovacs, a former U.N. soldier, resurfacing in a different sleeve of a private investigator, to solve the murder of the man who hires him. The fascinating plot promises solid rising action, while the actors look promising in their on-screen characters. However, it's the intricacies of the murder mystery that promises you a ride of a lifetime. 4. Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan - Prime Video Another thriller that has the audience hooked is 'Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan' which is based on the fictional characters from 'Ryanverse'. The series opens with Ryan, a CIA analyst, who gets caught in the tricky ways of fate and duty and is launched on a personal escapade to track down a dangerous Islamic terrorist. The cast is marvellous, the story is gripping, but it is the titular character and his amaze-balls ways that steal the show. 5. Dark This story might be hard to watch, but we promise you that it's even more difficult to stop watching. Shot in German, and in a gloomy setting which underlines its title, the story traces the lives of people living in the small town of Winden. The plot is full of cheating spouses, secrets, gruesome killings, and dead birds falling from the sky. The perpetual darkness is ominous of the many hidden mysteries, that are to unravel the ugly deeds of the last three generations. Get ready for a mind-boggling ride with these shows. We suggest keeping some snacks and good company handy while watching these.
  17. The #KikiChallenge took the world by storm when Drake dropped the hit number and people couldn't stop making videos of the challenge. However, trends come and go in the blink of an eye, after all, given how quickly the internet gets bored, everything seems replaceable online right?

  18. Quite often, the best things out there tend to be the ones that happen to be undiscovered. And as is the case with many things in India, finding the best treks too requires a hefty amount of research, as well as the willingness to visit unexplored places. In other words, if you're planning on taking a trek that will not only cater to your sense of thrill and adrenaline but will also make you fall in love with adventure sports all over again, you need to think out of the box. Fortunately for you, we've already done the heavy lifting and have compiled a list of the best treks in India that are guaranteed to leave you awestruck and mesmerized by the time you finish them. So get those trekking shoes ready, those water bottles stocked up and those windcheater jackets washed, as going on any one of the following treks, is guaranteed to be a moment you'll remember forever. 1) The Frozen Zanskar River Trek (Chadar) © Wikimedia Also known as the frozen Zanskar River trek, the Chadar Trek is located in the Zanskar region of Ladakh and will take you through a thrilling trail with vertical cliffs, that go as high as 2000 feet in the sky! Spanning a massive distance of 105 kilometres, the trek will bring you as close to ancient Ladakhi culture as you could ever be, and will definitely make for an experience that will be etched in your memory for years to come. Best Time To Visit: January to February Difficulty Level: Moderate to Hard Days Needed: 13 2) Goecha La Trek © StaticFlickr Situated in the winter heartland of Sikkim, the Goecha La trek gets you closer to the Kanchenjunga mountain, than most treks ever could. The best part about going on this trek is the fact that you'll pretty much be coming in contact with all of Mother Nature's glory - be it the crystal clear Himalayan lakes, the scenic hill stations and the thundering mountain range. Taking you to a maximum altitude of 16,200 feet, this is one of the most challenging treks you could take part in. Best Time To Visit: March to June, September to November Difficulty Level: Hard Days Needed: 12 3) Roopkund Trek © Wikimedia The mystery surrounding the Roopkund trek - particularly the lake of skeletons - has become a legend. But it's not just the mystery of this urban legend that makes this trek so special. After all, this is a trek that is surrounded by the looming peaks of the Himalayas and the soothing greenery of mountain forests, making it a trek of a lifetime. Best Time To Visit: May to June, September to October Difficulty Level: Moderate Days Needed: 8 4) Triund Trek © Wikimedia While it's not as underrated or unexplored as the other treks mentioned on the list - Triund has become quite popular recently - it's still an experience of a lifetime. Be it the amazing view of the Dhauladhars that you'll get to see at almost every turn, the flowery meadows that will rejuvenate your senses or the Bhagsu waterfalls that you'll be able to see on your way back, this is a trek that all adventurous spirits need to put on their bucket list. Fair warning though, this is a very hard trek, so make sure you're carrying the proper equipment - the right clothes, trail running shoes, hydration packs - before you go for it. Best Time To Visit: March to June Difficulty Level: Hard Days Needed: 2 5) Singalila Kanchenjunga Trek © StaticFlickr If you harbour an insane love for mountains, the Singalila Kanchenjunga trek is perfect for you. After all, not only will it get you in the nearby vicinity of the three of the tallest mountains in the world (Everest, Lhotse, Makalu), but it'll actually get you at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga itself! The trek itself mostly comprises of a narrow path along the borders of Sikkim and Nepal, making it one of the most thrilling and adrenaline rushing treks you could possibly take part it. Best Time To Visit: March to May, September to October Difficulty Level: Moderate to Hard Days Needed: 20 6) Gangotri Gomukh Trek © Wikimedia It is said that the Gangotri glacier is where River Ganga is at its most pure and pristine. So needless to say, a trek that'll bring you so close to the origin of River Ganga, all the while taking you into the Garhwal mountains of Uttarakhand, shouldn't be missed. This moderately challenging trek is truly a wonder, as it'll make you come in contact with a rich diversity of India's fauna and flora (including rare mountain goats), as well as the huge meadows of Tapovan. Best Time To Visit: May to June, August to October Difficulty Level: Moderate Days Needed: 12
  19. Hollywood star Will Smith, who is known for movies like 'Pursuit of Happyness', 'Hancock' and 'Men In Black' was in Mumbai over the weekend, and he made sure that he makes the most of his trip by doing everything, including the unimaginable. Instagram How often do you spot a Hollywood celebrity roaming on the streets of Mumbai in an autorickshaw? And what are the chances that the celebrity is driving the autorickshaw himself? Well, if you have been glued to social media all this time, you'll know exactly what we're talking about, because the photos and videos of Will Smith driving an auto have legit broken the internet.

  20. October is going to be one of the most happening months for mobile enthusiasts because we're expecting many new top-tier phones to launch. A couple of years back, March used to be filled to the brim with launches at MWC Barcelona and all the big names tried to take down one another. Samsung's S-series has established itself as a leader and all OEMs are now focusing on improving their product and launching it at the end of the year. This way, they have an edge in analysing the market trend as well as the following holiday season helps in boosting sales. This year, the hype has been more about price sensitive phones like the POCO F1, Mi A2, Vivo X21, and the Nokia 7 Plus. Now, we are looking forward to seeing the flagship phones from makers like Google, OnePlus, LG, Nokia, and Razer. 1. Google Pixel 3: Since you guys keep asking... https://t.co/DpRqzsyRem">pic.twitter.com/DpRqzsyRem — Evan Blass (@evleaks) https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/1043276447094333441?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 21, 2018 There aren't too many secrets left to share about Google's upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones. Both devices have been leaked left and right, so we know the smaller Pixel 3 will have a notch-less screen, while the larger Pixel 3 XL will have a notch on top. The Pixel 3 is expected to have a single rear camera, while the front has a dual camera setup. The Pixel 3 XL will also have a similar setup and the duo will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 4GB RAM, and 128GB storage. Google has started teasing or trolling, depends on your perspective, and things will go official on October 9. 2. OnePlus 6T: (c) Onleaks Continuing the same launch timeline, OnePlus has confirmed it will be launching the 6T by the third week of October. While the 'T' series phones from the company are supposed to have minor upgrades over the May flagship, rumours, and reports suggest OnePlus has some interesting new things coming up. This includes a much smaller water droplet style notch on the top, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and maybe, a triple camera setup on the back. These additions are sure to offend quite a lot of OnePlus 6 buyers, not just because a new and better flagship has been launched within 6 months, but because they are also removing the 3.5mm headphone jack. Yes, OnePlus intends to go the Apple way. 3. The Mystery 4X Samsung: (c) Samsung Honestly, this is the phone I'm personally most excited about. The core reason being, Samsung has managed to keep the lid on, and everything we've heard about it so far is extremely unreliable. This is how phone launches are actually supposed to be, exciting, not leaked multiple times again and again. As far as the details are concerned, we are guessing it'll have a 4-camera setup on the rear. A much bigger guess can be a foldable phone, but that's a very big if. Samsung will be making everything official on October 11. 4. Razer Phone 2: (c) Twitter Razer too has scheduled a launch, nicely fitting between Google and Samsung. We know the new phone will be focused on gaming, (obviously!) and will also have a dual camera setup on the rear. Leaked renders of the phone suggest it will have sharp edges and slim bezels too. The Razer logo on the back will be glowing, and the phone will have a 6-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. We are also pretty sure the phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC and will be backed by a 4500mAh battery. The phone will be launched on October 10. 5. Huawei Mate 20: Twitter / @rquandt The Mate series is typically the larger version of Huawei's flagship smartphone ranges, and this year's Mate 20 will feature the new Kirin 980 platform and make its debut on 16 October at an event in London. The Mate 20 series will continue with the premium design found on the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, though it is likely to adopt waterproofing and the notch design of the P20 and P20 Pro. ReplyForward
  21. There is some excellent news for fans of the X-Men franchise out there. The first trailer of 'Dark Phoenix' is finally here and it looks as dark and 'grey' as an Anurag Kashyap melodrama. But we're not here to critique it as much as we're here to talk about it, so let's talk about it! I feel the movie is a grave attempt by Simon Kinberg, the director (who also wrote 'The Last Stand') to push forth a female-led superhero flick, that goes into deep melodrama and centres around the protagonist's (Jean Grey) past and her present. © 20th Century Fox If you remember Dr. Jean Grey, she was first introduced in 2000, in 'X-Men' as a contained and intelligent, highly evolved mutant, taking care of the kids from Charles Xavier's mansion. We see her character develop over the first two movies, wherein she mysteriously disappears at the end of the second movie, to come back again in the poorly received 'X-Men: The Last Stand' (2006). 'Dark Phoenix' is a loose take on Jean Grey's character from back then, revamped and repackaged, to perhaps go into mere details of why the conflict between her dual personalities is causing so much havoc around her. But the movie is not a direct adaptation of 'The Last Stand', because in 2014, when 'Day's Of The Future Past' was released, it focused on wiping the events that occurred in the earlier X-Men series (remember, when they all go back in the past to change the circumstances around?). So, I certainly believe this is Simon Kinberg's take on a more faithful and detailed adaptation this time, intending at a brand new beginning of a new X-Men trilogy. © 20th Century Fox Okay, let's focus on what 'Dark Phoenix' is about. Well, for starters, there is no 'X-Men' in the title and the movie is simply called 'The Dark Phoenix'. That's probably because the movie focuses on Jean Grey's life, more than any other character from the franchise. The movie stars the usual suspects- Sophie Turner, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, along with Jennifer Lawrence as Raven aka Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Hank McCoy aka Beast, Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers aka Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Kodi-Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, and a new addition- Jessica Chastain, who plays a negative role as a mysterious shapeshifter, who manipulates the Phoenix. © 20th Century Fox The trailer focuses on Jean Grey coming to Prof. Xavier with a boatload of questions as a kid, after experiencing a terrible car crash, where her parents are killed. The clip also reveals that Xavier doesn't tell her that she's an A-grade mutant who has infinite powers and that she's probably the reason behind the death of her parents, suppressing her memories for her to remember anything. But, as we've all seen in the past, Jean is entirely incapable of controlling her powers and her dual personalities start conflicting. Simultaneously and inevitably, she unleashes a force, that's bigger and more powerful than anything, becoming one with the Dark Phoenix entity, causing chaos and destruction. The basic crux of the awaited X-Men movie is Jean Grey's untimely chaos and her ability to spiral out of control, hurting the ones she loves the most, while the team comes together, again, to save her and the planet from Alien villains, who want to weaponise her force and rule the galaxy. © 20th Century Fox Man, that's one predictable plot if you've seen the earlier X-Men instalments, but this one promises a lot more fury and chaos and, of course, the usual X-Men episodic saga. Well, this is the last X-Men movie to come under the auspices of Fox, with Marvel Studio paving the way for X-Men's inclusion into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, even if the movie implodes, it's at the least of risks because it'll be easier for Walt Disney and Kevin Feige (head of Marvel Studios), to wipe the slate clean and reboot the entire franchise for it to be included in the MCU. © 20th Century Fox But all of this remains in the realms of mere speculation. For now, let's just wait this one out. The second trailer should come out with more clarity in December sometime, and the final release of the movie is said to be on February 14th, 2019.
  22. After taking the television market by storm, Xiaomi is back with three new LED TVs in India that redefines the smart TV segment in India. The three TVs work on Android TV and come along with the company's proprietary PatchWall software, that brings in a seamless viewing experience for set-top box enabled connections. Android TV is commonly found in portable set-top boxes, but it can also be embedded into smart TVs as well. Up until now, Sony was a huge proponent of Android TV and commanded unmatched dominance in the market. Now, with the entry of Xiaomi, the segment has become extremely challenging thanks to aggressive pricing. © Xiaomi Mi TV 4 Pro has a 55-inch 4K panel, the Mi TV 4A Pro has a 49-inch Full HD panel that also supports HDR and lastly, the Mi TV 4C has a 32-inch panel. Xiaomi says, the panels are ultra bright and combined along with cinematic audio, the experience is one of its kind. Android TV runs on an Amlogic 64-bit quad core processor along with a Mali GPU. The 4 Pro and 4A Pro have 2GB RAM along with internal storage for apps and local content, while the 4C has 1GB RAM. Android TV certified televisions have access to Android TV-optimized apps from the Google Play Store and also support Google Cast as well as Google Assistant. © Xiaomi The TVs have powerful stereo speakers and come with a Mi Remote that enables voice search and can also control other connected Mi Home devices like the Air Purifier 2S. While competitors are offering basic TVs in this price segment, Xiaomi intends to disrupt the dynamics with this smart offering. On the hardware end, it also has 2 HDMI ports, 2 USB ports, and an S/PDIF port. Xioami has repeatedly stressed on its PatchWall software that incorporates third-party apps like YouTube as well as your DTH set-top box. The company claims the platform offers more than 7,00,000 hours of endless entertainment via its 15+ partners and supports 3,600+ apps and games from the Play Store. PatchWall also has an AI-powered system that classifies content and makes personalized recommendations based on user preferences. The Mi TV 4A Pro 49-inch is priced at Rs 29,999 for one month as an introductory offer, while the Mi TV 4 Pro is priced at Rs 49,999 and the Mi TV 4C costs Rs 14,999. They will be exclusively available via Mi.com. The company has also stressed that they are constantly working on improving the availability of enough stocks.
  23. From a wide variety of supplements in the market, not everything on the shelf is what you need. Here are top 5 most inessential supplements in the market which don't really need to be consumed to see results. 1. Mass Gainers The most convenient supplement suggested by trainers for skinny people. In reality, it's just a sugar filled tub that will surely get you fat real quick. Most companies fill up the gainers with low quality protein and multiple ingredients that don't really matter. Since it's humanly not possible to put on more than 1-5 kilos of muscle in a year, what you actually put on is simply fat. Basically they are nothing but fat gainers. © Thinkstock 2. Pre Workouts⯠Have you ever felt that kick after you take the pre workouts? It's nothing but a caffeine rush which causes hyper activity within the brain. Addiction of pre-workout supplements can cause bad sleep quality, insomnia and lot more. Though you shouldn't start your lifting journey right with consuming pre-workout, you can add them later on. Make sure you restrict to a scoop on the days you feel beat down. 3. Testosterone Boosters “THESE PILLS THIS WILL HELP YOU GROW MORE MUSCLE” One word answer- bullshit! Most T-boosters aren't T boosters but are just libido enhancers. You will witness better erections and get tricked into thinking that your testicles are producing more testosterone. That's exactly what not happens! © Thinkstock 4. Fat Burners⯠This term sounds so soothing, but it won't suit your body. All those models you see taking fat burning pills are competitive athletes. They use them to get rid of the last of ounces of water they are holding right before stepping on stage. If you are anywhere between 20-40% body-fat, burners are not for you. You will sweat and piss like crazy, feel dizzy and lethargic at times and some can even cause heart burns. 5. Branch Chain Amino Acids Many of us take BCAAs thinking that this supplement will give us sustained energy and help muscle recovery. But very recent researches have proven that if your protein intake is at par with what you really need, you don't need to supplement with aminos. Just focus on your daily protein intake.

  24. Before I even say anything about the car, just look at it! Ferrari I mean, it's something I have never ever seen before. Ferrari Such innovation, much wow! Ferrari This is the newest supercar by Ferrari called Monza and it has no roof or windshield, literally. After some pictures of the car were leaked online, Ferrari itself released some kickass pictures after a behind-closed-doors event for the most loyal customers of the company. The car comes in two different variants – the SP1, with a single-seat layout, and a two-seat SP2 version – and both of them reportedly cost a whopping $1.3 million dollars, which means people like us can only dream of owning it someday. But, considering the prices of so many other supercars, this huge amount actually seems pocket-friendly. Ferrari According to Ferrari, these cars' intended customers are the brand's 'dedicated clients and collectors' and reportedly only 500 of these cars would be produced overall. If you're a loner, well the SP1 would be perfect for you, after all, there's not even a seat for any other person, so there's no pressure of socializing. Finally, a car for a loner like me! Too bad I will never be able to afford it. Ferrari But, honestly the two-seater one is also pretty cool, it's just so perfect for families, right? Who says you need to have a car that accommodates kids when you can have a car that looks this cool. Okay, this is all I've to say about the car and if anyone wants to gift it to me, I prefer the SP1. Thank you in advance!
  25. Apple announced the new iPhone last week and the XS and XS Max go up on sale from tomorrow, September 21. The new iPhone XS starts at US$ 999, while the XS Max starts at US$ 1,099, and despite this heavy price tag, people are queuing up a day in advance to get their hands on the new Apple product. According to the Strait Times, insanely long lines have already formed outside 270 Orchard Road, Singapore. Apple has been expecting a high demand for its new product and hence, has already set up barricades and a queuing system outside their stores. Each person can buy up two phones and are given a wristband which lets them leave the queue for 30 minutes. In the last few years, a new trend has started of people lining up to buy these phones at market rates, and then immediately resell it ahead at a higher rate. The demand from the rich, including celebrities and businessmen, is unprecedented, and obviously, they don't want to queue up. © Wikipedia Commons People even fly down to Singapore from India, Vietnam and other neighbouring countries, so that they can buy the phone at the international rate and bring it back. This way, under the presumption of personal usage, import duty can be avoided. The iPhone XS starts at INR 99,900, leaving behind a fair amount of margin for profit. The queue for the new iPhone in Singapore. But it'll only be released tomorrowat 9am.#iPhone #iPhoneXSMax #Singapore #iPhoneXS #iPhoneXR #shazikfacts pic.twitter.com/Br7p6yncPO — SZ (@shafiq_zikri) September 20, 2018 A 44-member Vietnamese group called Dat Cay Da had flown to Singapore to specially buy the phones. A few members told the Strait Times that this is their yearly activity now. Obviously, the crowd also consists of hardcore Apple fans who want the bragging rights of having the new iPhone first. Used to queue up for the latest iPhone but haven't since the 6. Mostly because: pic.twitter.com/EC21PvioSy — Richard Moynihan (@richjm) September 13, 2018 On a lighter note, Deliveroo, an app-based food delivery business has said it'll deliver food to those who are waiting in the line outside the Apple Stores. The hype is real, and last year's iPhone X sales data proves that a higher price of the phone has no effect on sales whatsoever. © Reuters In fact, the iPhone X has received splendid reviews as well as sales numbers. The number of people waiting in line has often been a point of comparison among companies and helps in estimating the demand. Source: Strait Times
