  1. Sudan has seen a lot of turmoil and instability since June 2019, when the military first ousted the long-term ruling president Omar-Al-Bashir. It all started way back in December 2018, when the ruling president's government imposed emergency austerity methods in order to do away with an inevitable economic collapse. © BBC This led to a severe political crisis, which in turn made the security forces open fire on pro-democracy protestors in Khartoum. While the protest was peacefully handled, according to the New York Times, as many as 100 people have been killed and about 326 injured. At least 100 peaceful protesters were killed during a military crackdown in Sudan — now the country is at a standstill pic.twitter.com/AK0mPNkG8U — NowThis (@nowthisnews) 12 June 2019 The protestors are demanding a civilian-led interim government and since then, representatives of the protests have been in talks with the military, determining who takes control of authority. But the situation has bled for way too long now and according to the Central Committee of Sudan Doctors, at least 40 bodies were recovered from the river Nile. But How Did It All Begin? Well, the protests started in December 2018 to overthrow the President. Cuts were made to bread and fuel subsidies which sparked protests in the east over the standard of living and ultimately, they reached to the capital Khartoum. The protestors obviously demanded Bashir's government to be thrown out, who had been in power for 30 years. The protests finally reached a conclusion on April 6, when people occupied the square in front of the military headquarters and demanded that the army fight the president out of his rule. Almost 5 days later, the military announced the president was no longer in power. © BBC Women played a main role in the protests, with 22-year-old Alaa Saleh leading the group. Even though a woman was the face of the protestors, as many as 70 women were raped by the police and the paramilitary forces during an attack at the protest camp, while some protestors were shot at, on June 3rd. #SudanMassacre What is happening in Sudan? This is so bad. pic.twitter.com/fMvdiKlUB3 — jafar badi (@BadiJafar) 13 June 2019 So, Now Who Is In Charge? A council of generals took over on April 11 but there was a lot of struggle for the country to regain normalcy, in every sense of the word. The seven-member Transitional Military Council is led by Lt-Gen Abdel Fattah Abdelrahman Burhan and they insist they need to be in charge to bring everything back to normalcy again. But unfortunately, the army is not a unified force in the country and a lot of paramilitary organisations and Islamic militia have also taken up authority there. For now, the streets of Sudan are deserted with a complete Internet blackout in the country. The United Nations has condemned the attacks and The Human Rights Council has been called about to probe an inquiry into the Human Rights violations committed by the military in Sudan. Schools, hospitals and health centres in #Sudan have been targeted, looted and destroyed. Health workers have been attacked simply for doing their job. To save children's lives, the violence must stop. #ChildrenUnderAttack pic.twitter.com/A6VbGI6aGo — UNICEF (@UNICEF) 13 June 2019 Who Exactly Is The Opposition? Even though the economic collapse brought the Sudanese from all walks of life to the streets, the demonstration organisation was taken over by The Sudanese Professionals Association, a collaboration of doctors, lawyers and health workers. The protestors are local people across all age groups but most of them are young people, fighting for their rights. When the military finally took power in April, the protestors stood outside Military Headquarters demanding the authority to be given to a civilian administration. The civilian group of protestors and the ruling generals, who come under the umbrella group 'Alliance For Freedom and Change', eventually came to an agreement. © Twitter What Did They Agree On? Both the Civilian Administration and the Military decided on a three-year-transition period to civilian rule. An agreement was reached on May 15, 2019. The protestors claim that Bashir's regime is so deeply planted and implemented that a long transition is needed to completely uproot his political network and allow fair democratic elections again. The two sides also agreed on a new government, including a sovereign council, a cabinet and a legislative body. © Twitter But unfortunately, the military leaders didn't stick to their decisions and scrapped the agreements reached to set up a fresh elections mandate within nine months. The TMC head decided to stop negotiating with the Alliance For Freedom and Change and cancel whatever had been agreed on. In the wake of this fresh agreement, the pro-democracy leaders said they were cutting all contacts with the TMC and called for a 'total civil disobedience' and a general strike. While the strikes were called off on June 11, which almost brought Khartoum to a standstill, most African and Western countries have backed the protestors. Saudi Arabia has urged discussion on both sides but not condemned the military. © Twitter After the strikes have been pulled away, protest leaders are willing to resume power-sharing talks with the ruling military council. “The Alliance for Freedom and Change agreed to end the civil disobedience from today. Both sides have also agreed to resume talks soon." Mahmoud Drir, the official mediator made a statement about the situation. We just hope both the parties reach a common consensus and peace is restored in Sudan, especially in Khartoum, really soon.
  2. Rains have been playing spoilsport in a wide majority of matches played in this year's edition of the ICC World Cup 2019. With 4 of the matches to be played in the World Cup already washed out, fans are increasingly concerned about what the rules are regarding rain and washouts. As per ICC guidelines, all matches are expected to wrap up within an 8 hour-long period and match officials are expected to follow due process regarding abandoning of a match. If conditions improve within this 8 hour period, a pitch inspection determines whether a game can start or resume and if so, then within how much time. If conditions do not improve or if the pitch is not worthy of a game of cricket, the match is abandoned. Reserve days for matches in the group stages have not been implemented this year and this resulted in World Cup chief David Richardson to weigh in on the issue. "Factoring in a reserve day for every match at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup would significantly increase the length of the tournament and practically would be extremely complex to deliver." Statement from David Richardson â¬ï¸ https://t.co/OEOXAJ4h8h — ICC (@ICC) June 11, 2019 Richardson claimed that the resulting longevity of the tournament and external factors like pitch preparation, venue availability, staffing, etc. make reserve days very difficult to incorporate. There is also no guarantee whether the rain will not interfere with matches in reserve days as well. “Factoring in a reserve day for every match at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup would significantly increase the length of the tournament and practically would be extremely complex to deliver,” he said. © Reuters This year's World Cup is also the first to feature a Super Over in cases of rain delays and match abandonments in the semi-final and final stage. In case of extreme weather conditions, it is once again at the discretion of the match officials whether to hold the Super Over at the official time which is 10 minutes after the game, or at a later time. Also weighing in on the debate of whether this was the wrong time to host a huge international competition in England, Richardson said in his statement, “this is extremely unseasonable weather. In the last couple of days we have experienced more than twice the average monthly rainfall for June which is usually the third driest month in the UK.” Whether or not the rules, scheduling and guidelines are appropriate is up for debate, but no cricket fan wants to see highly anticipated and exciting matches being abandoned due to rain.
  3. It's the best Chris in Hollywood's birthday, yay! What can I say about Chris Evans? He's a great actor, he's a great person, he's literally a golden retriever in human form. This near-perfect human being turned 38 today and we obviously need to celebrate him, and what better way than to look back at all of his best scenes from the MCU? Let's be real, he can do whatever role he wants, but he will always be Captain America (sorry, Anthony Mackie but that's what you get for a boring Black Mirror episode). As Cap, he's given us many incredible movies with unforgettable dialogues and scenes. While every scene with him is great, of course, I have listed out the best, most memorable scenes. Enjoy! Also, happy birthday, Cap! 1. The best Cap scene ever/ Hammer Time This scene, this freaking scene, is hands down the best MCU moment for me. I can watch it a hundred times and still be as excited as the first time. Such a crucial moment, Thanos is overpowering Thor and will probably kill him, but wait, in comes Cap to show he's worthy. Nothing can top this. 2. Cap vs Cap Another great 'Endgame' scene that we didn't know he needed until it actually happened. From “I can do this all day” “yeah, I know, I know” to “Bucky is alive” to “this IS America's ass”, the whole Cap vs Cap fight scene was perfect, nothing can make it better. 3. “There's only one God” What a dialogue, what a way to introduce Thor in 'The Avengers', and Steve being Steve and jumping out of planes. Also, him calling Natasha 'ma'am' proving he really is from the 40s. 4. When he blocks Thor's hammer Well, now we know how and why he could do this. He's also so worthy! Also, the moment Thor realizes they're not some random people. 5. Lift scene(s) A great scene from an overall great movie. The 'lift scene' is so memorable, it's so well done. Anyone should be afraid of getting into a lift with Chris Evans - or make fun of it - but either way, it's still one of the best MCU scenes till date and that's why there was a callback to that in 'Endgame' as well. Cap saying 'Hail Hydra' will never not be funny to me. 6. Cap is strong, like very very strong If you were not even a little turned on by Chris Evans' muscles and strength in this scene, then you're not human and you're also lying. The guy is so freaking strong, he literally could stop a fucking helicopter from flying. Strongest Avenger right here, people. Hulk who? 7. Nomad Cap! You cannot tell me that Cap's entry in 'Infinity War' wasn't one of the best scenes in a movie filled with incredible scenes. To be honest, it was the perfect way to introduce the newest Avenger - Captain America's cool new beard (and no I'm not talking about Peggy or Sharon). 8. AVENGERS…assemble Well, we started with 'Endgame' and we'll end with 'Endgame', obviously. This might not be a long scene but it's a damn powerful one. Everyone who got dusted is back - which again was a visual treat in itself - but when Cap comes in front and does what he does best - lead - it was just great to watch. Also, it was the last time these Avengers will ever assemble and the added emotional aspect makes it an unforgettable scene from the entire MCU.
  4. A word like 'ripped' has probably never ever been used to describe Arjun Kapoor (no offence), but there's always a first for everything and now, it's his time to shine. Just an hour ago, Arjun Kapoor shared a couple of pictures of himself, as proof that he's been hitting the gym. I guess that's what happens when you're dating someone as fit as Malaika. View this post on Instagram Warrior mode on !!! #panipat A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on Jun 12, 2019 at 3:46am PDT He looks ripped as hell and yeah, that's all good for him but we just want to know how and when? I mean, he has never looked like this before so it should be a new thing, but literally every picture he has posted recently, he looks nowhere as fit like this one. View this post on Instagram Smile... because it's easier not to... Smile... because they expect u not to... Smile... because there are more reasons to than not to... Just Smile. #wednesdaywisdom A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on May 29, 2019 at 2:21am PDT Can you just turn into that overnight? Please share your secrets Arjun, I'm already sick of going to the gym and it's only been four days. How can you go from this in May- View this post on Instagram Favourite pose... playing dress up for my #saturdaynight !!! #BelvedereStudioB @belvedere_india A post shared by Arjun Kapoor (@arjunkapoor) on May 11, 2019 at 2:11pm PDT To this in June? Warrior mode on !!! #Panipat pic.twitter.com/LSTgIXHSxt — Arjun Kapoor (@arjunk26) June 12, 2019 Did you sell your soul? Well, even if he did, I guess it's worth it. Just look at all the comments. I still want to know the real reason behind this overnight transformation, tbh.
  5. Parenting ain't no easy job, especially when you have to raise an extremely demanding tech-savvy generation like today. Father's Day is tomorrow and a pat on the back or a phone call can go a long way. Meaning, if you haven't already thought of a few gifts for your dad, it's probably about time. Luckily, we're here to help you out. There are a ton of things you could get your tech-savvy dad, and we've compiled a list of latest options for you. These gadgets are among our favourites and very utilitarian: 1. Google Home Mini: © Google The Google Home Mini has a lot of uses, but it's also one of our favourite white noise machines. Just have him say "Hey Google, play rain sounds" or "white noise" or "fan sounds." There's a whole list of relaxing sounds any Google Assistant speaker can make. Digital assistants have gotten extremely smart and with a habit, you can tune them exactly as you want. In the long run, they indeed help you organise daily tasks and voice commands eliminate quite a few manual interactions. Lastly, the Mini is a classic speaker. Feeling even more generous? Bundle along a yearly YouTube Music subscription for him! From Flipkart 2. Fitbit Versa Lite: © YouTube If you thought a weighing machine was a good idea for your dad, then perhaps a fitness tracker makes even more sense. Don't just taunt him about gaining weight, help him burn the extra fat! The Fitbit Versa Lite is a perfect combination of a tracker and smartwatch. It has up to five days of battery life, elegant design, punchy display, and an accurate Fitbit OS tracking system. With the heart rate scanner, ensure you stay healthy every step of the day. Lastly, it can run some nifty apps that are helpful on the go and it doesn't cost as much as an Apple Watch. From Amazon.in 3. Amazon Kindle Paperwhite: © YouTube The design has remained unchanged for years and that's because it's perfect as it is. Rather than a trendy glass built delicate gadget, the Kindle is an evergreen option for those who love to read. With month-long battery life, there's no stopping. The new Kindle Paperwhite offers something crucial in this day and age: a break from our smartphones, laptops, and TVs. After a hectic day of work, you want to be away from a screen. And, thanks to the e-ink technology, the Kindle never strains your eyes. What's more? Bundle along a Kindle Unlimited membership! From Amazon.in 4. Sony WH-1000XM3: © Sony The Sony WH1000XM3 headphones have been hailed over the past few months as having the best noise-cancellation out there. But the headphones don't stop at offering great noise cancellation -- they also sound absolutely awesome, offering great low-end, well-tuned mids, and a ton of detail in the high-end. The Bluetooth enabled earphones supports LDAC that allows one to enjoy high-resolution audio than conventional earphones. If you're in the middle of an intense music session when you suddenly you need to talk to someone around you, placing your hand on the housing will turn down the volume automatically! Oh, and it has 30 hours of battery life. From Amazon.in 5. Mi Air Purifier 2S: © Xiaomi The Air Purifier 2S packs a dose of smarts you don't see in most competitors, such as Wi-fi connectivity and remote management from the Mi Home app. The fan never stops spinning unless you power the device down and Xiaomi says, the custom-made motor draws a mere 4.8 watts in normal operation. The addition of a small OLED display makes operations very convenient. Air pollution in India is here to stay for a long time, about time we start considering its long term effects and prepare accordingly. From Amazon.in 6. Fossil Sport Smartwatch: © YouTube The Fitbit is built with health and fitness as its primary selling point, the Fossil, on the other hand, is a fashion accessory. Sure, it has all the required health features like heart rate scanning, Google Fit, and even untethered GPS. But, it goes a step forward with its design and customizability options. It's compatible with Android and iOS as well as fit all 22mm straps. You can also customize the dial to match your mood or personalize select watch faces with your favourite Facebook or Instagram photos. From Amazon.in
  6. Shorts are one piece of clothing that men of all ages must have in their closets. No matter what the occasion, they can be a part of the ultimate outfit, no matter what sort of a fashion statement you are trying to make. And, if like Varun Dhawan, you have the physique and the legs to rock them, even better. Take notes, guys... 1. Dress According To Your Strengths © Instagram/varundvn Just look at him and tell us you don't envy that. You can't, can you? Varun, in these white ripped denims and white and blue trainers, goes on to show how you can flaunt your legs, as well as your washboard abs by dressing right. On a side note, who would've thought wearing denims to a gym would actually work? Kudos Varun, way to go! 2. Loose Fits Are Dope © Instagram/varundvn A loose-fitting pair is the key to a super hip look. Pair it with an oversized jersey, and matching trainers, and you have the ultimate athleisure trifecta. And if you can add on a sports cap or a beanie, well, that's the cherry on top of an ultra-hip athleisure sundae. Just make sure that the pieces you pair are loose-fitting, not overtly oversized. That just does not look good. 3. Consider Your Colours © Instagram/varundvn As awesome as Varun looks with his pet, his outfit simply takes the cake here. Pairing a denim jacket and pair of coloured shorts worked wonders for him. Add to that, the fact that his sneakers happen to match the primary colours of his outfit. That was just a masterstroke. We seriously suggest that you go for something like this for your next casual outing with your gang of bros. 4. Khaki Shorts Can be Funky © Viral Bhayani Earthy tones and hues do not necessarily have to be all sober and uncool. Case in point would be this distressed khaki shorts, that Dhawan pairs with a black suede jacket and flip flops. Looks perfect for a lazy evening spent around, or a casual dinner with your gang. What's more, because this look is rather simple and subtle, you can always add an element or two to funk things up a bit. Like Dhawan's flip flops. 5. Prints Are Fun © Viral Bhayani The pair of shorts that Varun wore to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja's birthday bash was a class apart, along with the way that he combined his outfit. A maroon shirt with embroidered and printed flowers, with a white denim shorts, with abstract print stains? Count us in. A rather cool and artsy look, the sombreness of the outfit gets offset thanks to the ragged edge of the short and the blue NHL cap.
  7. Yes, tonight will be the best night of the year to take a good look at the world's largest planet. Jupiter, the Earth and the Sun all line up in a row tonight, making up for prime viewing opportunities. Not just that, Jupiter is also said to be at its closest to us tonight, which means, you can even see four of its moons i.e. Io, Europa, Callisto, and Ganymede if you have the right gear.Photo: © YouTube (Main Image) © NASA The cosmic event, dubbed 'Opposition' will occur at 6 PM EST, which is around 3.30AM according to the Indian Standard Time. You can expect to see the planet shinning bright like a jewel around the same time. According to the stargazers at NASA, this event only happens once every 13 months. So, if you miss out on taking a look at the Jupiter tonight, then you'll have to wait 13 months again to get a chance to see it up close. Of course, you can always check out the planet with the help of the images captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft, which is currently orbiting the massive planet, but there's nothing like taking a good look at the thing with your naked eyes. © Reuters Also, if you happen to have a good telescope, then you can also nerd out by spotting things like Jupiter's individual cloud bands and its characteristic Great Red Spot. But that's just optional. You'll still get a good view without any special equipment whatsoever. Enjoy!
  8. Air Force One is undoubtedly one of the most popular planes on the planet. It's responsible for carrying the President of The United States and is a symbol of the country's might. Thanks to multiple Hollywood films and documentaries, the aircraft is globally recognised and a treat for aviation geeks. Though there's another plane that follows the Air Force One, and it's actually a lot cooler. Often dubbed as the "Doomsday Plane", it is America's secretive jet designed to survive a nuclear war. In the event of Armageddon, it'll the U.S. Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other top personalities alive whilst the president would be on board the Air Force One. © USAF Technically called the E-4B, it's a modified version of the Boeing 747-200 and officially called the National Airborne Operation Centers. The design of the plane is meant to survive an electromagnetic pulse with all the systems left intact. Currently, there are four planes in the fleet and always available on standby to shadow the Air Force One. © Aiirsoure Military / YouTube Nuclear explosions emit a strong electromagnetic pulse that can severely damage electronic circuits (computer chips), hence the E-4B additionally uses traditional analogue flight instruments to navigate. In operation since the 1970s, these aircraft have been considered to be the best chance for a Cold War president to survive a nuclear attack. © USAF The plane isn't designed to offer comfort and focus has been on utility. They can carry dozens of military analysts, strategists and communication aids to enable a working government from the sky. Another special feature includes a five-mile-long trailing wire antenna that would ensure that the president could remain in contact with the nuclear submarine fleet even after ground-based communications had been destroyed. Based out of Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska, the planes are always ready to fly at a moments notice. According to aviation forums, one aircraft is usually airborne every 12 hours, with another one ready for departure with a 5-minute notice. © US Government Boeing stopped making the 747-200 long back and the U.S Government has been planning to phase out the Air Force One (VC-25A). Even the E-4B needs a replacement soon because the airframe has been used extensively and older spare parts are harder to find for regular maintenance. Fun Fact: You can fly this plane in GTA V via a mod!
  9. June 16th 2019 is the day when we will all lose our peace and voice box collectively, cheering on India and Pakistan, who're playing against each other in the ICC World Cup 2019. Although, an India-Pakistan match fervour isn't old news, it's still celebrated and watched by everyone due to the history we've shared with Pakistan all along. During the 2015 ICC World Cup, Star Sports came up with a campaign or theme for the promo of the Indo-Pak match and although it flew well with us Indians, the Pakistanis weren't too pleased with it. The 'Mauka Mauka' ads gained immense popularity amongst the masses and the theme caught on like common cold, all over the country. (c)Star Sports This year, Mauka Mauka is back with a bang, and this time it's promoting the Indo-Pak match on the 16th of June 2019, the same day Father's day is celebrated all across the world and the advertisement has a 'slight' mention of that. As expected, the ad is humouring Pakistan's dismissal record against India in ICC events and it seems it's making the Pakistanis a tad angry, but really, no one cares because it's all in light humour. (c)Star Sports Here, take a look at some savagery! The video shows actor Vikas Malhotra who plays the Pakistan son remembering his father's words on how one should keep trying and never give up, and the Indian fan in the ad shows some savagery by taking the 'baap' dig on the Pakistani player. Obviously the Pakistanis showed a bit of resentment over the ad and aren't happy with the Mauka Mauka campaign, promoting the match between the two countries.

  10. Virat Kohli - he may be one of the most influential personalities in the world, but the Indian cricket captain is much more than the aggressive and headstrong persona that dominates the field. For one, Forbes declared him as one of the highest paid athletes in the world in 2018, and that only goes on to show that Kohli owns both money and matter when it comes to living life king size. View this post on Instagram Black on black swag with #one8 ð Comfort levels. ð A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on Oct 26, 2018 at 2:46am PDT He earned close to rupees 170 crores in 2018 alone, through a number of channels which range from his cricketing career to endorsements and business ventures. We feel that given all the wealth stacked away in his locker, it surely calls for a rundown of all ridiculously expensive things Kohli possesses, and here's what we found: 1. Range Of Luxury Cars Starting Rs 80 Lakh (c) Twitter Virat Kohli has a special liking for sleek luxury cars and he owns some of the top of the range cars to prove it. Virat owns a Range Rover worth Rs. 80 lakh, an Audi Q7 priced at Rs. 83 lakh, a BMW X6 that costs Rs. 1.2 crore, as well as two more hi-tech Audi cars, A8 W12 Quattro and R8 V10 LMX which are priced at Rs. 2 crore and Rs. 3 crore respectively. 2.

The Indian skipper owns a Panerai Luminor 1950 GMT 3 Days Automatic Acciaio worth Rs. 6.5 lakh. Kohli is also a proud owner of a Tissot T-Touch Limited Edition worth Rs. 1 lakh. 3.

  11. After waiting for more than a week since their warm-up match against Bangladesh, the Indian cricket team finally made their ICC World Cup 2019 debut against Faf du Plessis' South African team and played a wonderful game of ODI cricket in chasing a minimal yet tricky mark of 228. Four wickets by @yuzi_chahal and a devastating opening spell by @Jaspritbumrah93 saw #TeamIndia limit South Africa to 227 runs. Watch all the wickets here! ⤵ #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/2zXVB5XMnw — ICC (@ICC) June 5, 2019 While a huge chunk of the credit for the victory goes to Yuzvendra Chahal for his 4-wicket-haul and Jasprit Bumrah's highly effective and economical bowling (economy of 3.5 runs), there was one man who stood between the Proteas and their first win of the Cricket World Cup 2019 like a brick wall, Rohit Sharma. But it was #TeamIndia's day, their successful chase led by a superb ð¯ to @imro45 which included 13 boundaries and a pair of sixes. Watch the highlights here! ð #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/iKt5er9r82 — ICC (@ICC) June 5, 2019 Scoring a brilliant and unbeaten 122 of 144 deliveries, the 'Hitman' stuck to the crease despite his opening partner, Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Virat Kohli being removed from the pitch quickly. As the opener for the Indian batting order, Sharma stayed in the middle of the action right from the beginning till the end and saw Hardik Pandya be done with the match with a crackling boundary in the 48th over. Now, Rohit Sharma is one of the greatest batsmen to put on the blue jersey and represent our nation in international competitions but you've got to agree that the 'Luck Gods' were smiling at him throughout the match saving him from heading back to the pavilion on multiple occasions. © Reuters Ever since the first over, Sharma's wicket was up for grabs. First he unintentionally flicked the ball to the backward square leg but the fielder was two to three steps away from the spot where the ball landed, then he was dropped between point and backward point. South African skipper, Faf du Plessis also dropped Sharma's catch at second slip and finally Sharma survived yet another scare thanks to David Miller who dropped a dolly at silly mid off late in the game. So, there are only two logical reasonings for Rohit Sharma getting so many lives at the crease last night. Either the Proteas fielding was just horrible and deserves all the criticism in the world, or, it was Nita Ambani and her world-renowned beliefs that provided Rohit Sharma with the kind of luck he needed in his 2019 World Cup opener. And the fine people of Twitter seems to concur with this theory: Faf after the match : If nita ambani hadn't visited the stadium rohit sharma wouldn't had scored a century and we would had taken those catches.....#INDvSA — Jammy (@The_WaLLLLLLL) June 5, 2019 When Nita Ambani spotted in the stadium Rohit Sharma : ððð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ pic.twitter.com/njL8B4TWDX — Thakur S P Parmar ð®ð³ (@IamErSPSingh) June 5, 2019 Hope Nita Ambani has tickets to all the games...

  12. For someone who began his career as a middle-order batsman, Rohit Sharma has come into his own ever since MS Dhoni and the Indian team management identified him as a threatening opening batsman. Over the years, batting at the top, Rohit has not only turned his career around, but also provided India the luxury of an indispensable opener. A vital cog in the Indian batting line-up, Rohit came into the ICC World Cup with a lot of expectations on his shoulders. With his team tipped as one of the top contenders this year, the right-hander was quite understandably bestowed with the responsibility of getting them to a good start. And, on 5th June, Rohit, once again, proved why he is rated so highly by the Indian team management and all the cricket experts across the globe. Beginning their campaign against a team of South Africa's calibre was never going to be easy, but a spectacular show by the Indian bowling unit did tilt the game in favour of the 'Men in Blue'. Impressive figures by Yuzvendra Chahal (4-51) and Jasprit Bumrah (2-35) ensured that the Proteas were restricted to a mediocre total of 227 runs at the loss of nine wickets. Reuters Though the target appeared mediocre, but if anyone saw the conditions and pitch behave in the first-half of the match, they'd agree that it was going to take some doing for India to register their first points in the tournament. And, that's exactly what happened. Against the searing pace and impeccable lengths of sprinting Kagiso Rabada, the Indian openers looked far from being comfortable with both Shikhar Dhawan (8) and Rohit struggling early on. After the game of cat and mouse, pressure got to Dhawan as he edged one off Rabada through to Quinton de Kock behind the stumps. With the Proteas quicks smelling blood, the Indian side needed their batsmen at the crease to oversee the troublesome times and apply themselves in a bid to stitch a partnership - something Rohit and Virat Kohli (18) tried to do following Dhawan's dismissal. The duo added 41 runs for the second wicket and were eager to stabilise India's run-chase when Andile Phehlukwayo struck to send Kohli packing - courtesy a spectacular catch by De Kock. Reuters With his captain back in the hut, Rohit put his best foot forward and decided to carry the baton for his side. The Mumbai batsman gave himself enough time at the crease to settle in and, unlike his teammates, he didn't force his shots against the odd ball. On the other hand, Rohit was also impressive in rotating the strike which allowed him, and in turn India, to stitch strong partnerships. After partnering Kohli, Rohit was involved in an 85-run partnership for the third wicket with KL Rahul (26) who looked good for the better part of his innings in the much-debated No. 4 slot. But, Rahul's dismissal in the 32nd over at the hands of Rabada once again got India in a spot of bother. Top century from Rohit Sharma. Composed, relaxed. Rode the early tension well and has been a picture of certainty since — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 5, 2019 Unnerved by the pressure, Rohit continued to steer the chase for India after finding some support from MS Dhoni (34). The two experienced batsmen added 74 runs for the fourth wicket and almost nullified the threat Rabada & co. posed in the middle. As the game neared its end, India lost Dhoni, but Rohit's presence in the middle ensured the team remained on track. Reuters While the winning runs came from the blade of swashbuckling Hardik Pandya (15*), it was arguably Rohit's superlative knock of 122 runs including 10 fours and two sixes that made the difference. Calm ,composed and a wonderful century from @ImRo45 ! Fantastic understanding of the situation ! — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) June 5, 2019 On a track where batsmen from both sides struggled to get going, Rohit showed great composure and temperament in his match-winning innings. Curbing his natural, aggressive game, Rohit adapted to the conditions and sacrificed certain shots from his armoury to ensure his survival at the crease. Owing to experience and know-how of the game, the Indian opener got his team over the line and notched up his second World Cup hundred and get India off to a winning start in the tournament. A wonderful, mature innings from Rohit Sharma. Great assessment of the situation and seeing India through to the win in the end, a hallmark of top players @ImRo45 . A well begun World Cup campaign for Team India #INDvSA pic.twitter.com/Hmul57c4BO — VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) June 5, 2019 It was also Rohit's 23rd ODI hundred which allowed him to go past Sourav Ganguly (22) in the list of India's all-time top hundred makers in the 50-over format. He is now placed third in the elite list with just Sachin Tendulkar (49) and Kohli (41) ahead of him. Following their emphatic six-wicket triumph, the Kohli brigade will hope that Rohit continues his fine run when they take the field against Australia in the much-anticipated clash at The Oval on 9th June.
  13. We're going to talk about an age old dating trend which has found a new name and is incessant in its occurrence and let's face it, can be quite lethal. We're talking about 'Love Bombing' and it's the worst manipulative move in today's dating game. No, love bombing isn't bombarding someone with love. Well, not entirely. It's a lot more than that. (c)Pintrest Love bombing is an emotionally abusive situation in a relationship where the victim goes through manipulative withdrawal after being showered with love and affection. The victims are usually people who have gone through emotionally strung out, abusive relationships in the past and haven't worked on changing their particular pattern; hence they get manipulated easily into another damaging relationship, because they haven't worked on their past issues. Such people attract relationships with narcissistic folks, making them vulnerable to the concept of love bombing. (c)Pintrest It's basically a weapon disguised as affection and you may get a lot of it from the person who is love bombing you, but her ultimate motive is to manipulate you in to believing it's all real. So, in order to avoid being love-bombed, especially when you've just come out of a serious relationship, here's what you can do: (1) Take Things Very Slow One major fact about love bombers are they will get under your skin and your psyche way too quickly. They will give their all, in little time and suddenly it'll feel like this fits perfectly well. Because love is blind, quite literally and before you know it, after a boatload of love and affection they will show you a side you were never privy to before. While giving you the attention that you always craved for, they also shower you with gifts, which in most cases is a transactional process for them. All these moves are quite calculative and well thought out, before they start withdrawing and showing you their true colours (mostly their abusive and controlling side) before the romance starts to fizzle out. (c)Pintrest So, in order to avoid that situation, take it slow at first and make sure you know the person fairly well, before you're drawn or lured in to their trap. Love bombers are impatient people. They want everything to go rather quickly so you have to take your own time to figure what you need to and in case they bail, because you were taking your time, they were worth it to begin with. (2) Don't Delve Into Future-Talks Love bombers love talking about the future, in little to no time. You may feel you have found the right person who is giving you everything you've ever desired including making future plans with you. From wedding plans to how many kids you both want to have, everything will be laid straight out like the best made plans. But there's a catch. Future talks with a love bomber are sure shot signs of red flag. It's tricky because love bombers trick you into believing they are an important part of your life and indispensable to your future happiness. (c)Pintrest Make sure you don't indulge in any future plans with them, until you're sure and significant time has gone by and you've figured out their true intention. Otherwise they will leave you with a million dreams for the future and disappear. (3) If They Start To Seem Difficult, Leave A few traits you can't miss when you're with a narcissistic love bomber is that they will play on your insecurities, their unreasonable demands and expectations will increase, things will obviously start to fizzle out and the relationship will feel like a constant emotional-merry-go-round. These are the signs you need to watch out for, when things start getting a little too aggressive and abrupt and leave. Save yourself some hurt and recognise these patterns. You will know how they treat you, which will be very different from how anyone in a 'normal' relationship would. (c)Pintrest Most times it's a human tendency to feel good about oneself and attract people who make people feel good about themselves. Sometimes people go through heavily abusive relationships and make it a pattern to attract people who will behave the same way the others have in the past, with them. The solution is to break the pattern and introspect as to why you let certain people into your life. Love bombing is one of the most toxic forms of abuse and if you realise the traces early on, you can definitely break away and live without the unnecessary toxicity. Or just pay attention to the pointers mentioned above and be at guard with love bombers who may come your way.
  14. Apple is bringing major changes to the iPad as the Cupertino giant unveiled iPadOS last night at WWDC. Some of these features were highly requested by iPad users for better usability, functionality and adaptability. Apple announced the new iPadOS with new features that brings the iPad closer to laptops. Here are the features announced by Apple for iPadOS: 1. Mouse Support iPad users have requested mouse support for a while especially since the new iPad Pro is powerful enough to take on most laptops. For now, Apple has implemented mouse support as an AssistiveTouch feature which we feel is just the starting point. This feature at the moment simulates the touch action and can be done using a mouse instead. Currently, the feature is compatible with Apple's Magic Trackpad, and wireless Bluetooth mice. USB mice are reportedly supported but we can only be sure once it rolls out. Hello mouse support on iOS 13! It's an AssistiveTouch feature, and works with USB mice. @viticci nailed this pic.twitter.com/nj6xGAKSg0 — Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) June 3, 2019 2. USB File Transfers © Apple In order to come closer to a laptop's functionality, Apple's Files app needed additional support for better files management. Most users wanted support for USB drives and Apple is finally bringing support on the iPadOS. The new operating system will allow users to easily plug in USB drives, SD cards or log into an SMB file server. There's also support for importing photos directly from a camera into Lightroom. 3. Second Screen © Apple If you own a Macbook and want additional screen space, the iPad will now be able to fill that void. iPadOS brings the added feature of using your iPad as a secondary display. You can even use the iPad to edit images on your MacBook in real time. 4. Better Multitasking © Apple iPad users can now work with multiple files and documents from the same app simultaneously with updates to Split View, or can quickly view and switch between multiple apps in Slide Over. For example, customers can compose an email while viewing another email side by side or access multiple apps like Messages or Calendar with just a swipe. The iPad OS will be available for beta users later this month and is available now for Apple Developer Program members.
  15. Battle Royale games like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite, as we all know, hit mobile gamers hard. With over millions of active players, these titles are still going strong even after all these years. Well, if you're tired of playing the same old battle royale titles, or if you're planning to get aboard the battle royale hype train, then we've got some amazing options. Let's check them out - 1) Crossfire Legends If you like PUBG Mobile, then you'll most likely enjoy Crossfire Legends too. It's a fantastic game and it's developed by Tencent, the guys who made PUBG Mobile. Just like PUBG Mobile, Crossfire Legends' BR mode also lets you dive into a solo, duo or a squad game. Crossfire Legends got great weapons and amazing visuals, so it's definitely worth checking out. In addition to the BR mode, this particular game also offers a few different modes such as Team Deathmatch, Mutant mode, and more. Availability: Android & iOS 2) Call Of Duty: Mobile This one's a fairly new game. Heck, it's not even available for all users, but it's still worth adding to the list. Call of Duty: Mobile, though it's only available for select registered users, has gained a lot of traction. It's got a Battle Royale mode, Team Deathmatch, etc. Call of Duty: Mobile differentiates itself as a tactical shooter, making it one of the very titles out there offering a tactical shooting experience. We've already put up a detailed write up explaining about the key differences from PUBG Mobile and you can check it out right here. In case you haven't tried the game yet, here's how you sideload the game and play it right now. Availability: Android & iOS 3) Fortnite Fortnite is in-part responsible for creating the battle royale hype, so we had to add this to the mix. Unlike PUBG Mobile, this one's a super stable game and a lot of fun to play. Although Fortnite is a battle royale title, the gameplay is slightly different. The only downside to the game is that it's not available on the Google Play Store, so you'll have to get it from the Epic Launcher. It's available directly from the App Store though. Availability: Android & iOS 4) PUBG Mobile Well, lastly we have PUBG Mobile. Yes, the game that popularised the Battle Royale genre. The game lets you jump off to an island with 99 other players and get into an epic battle to get the 'Chicken Dinner'. The game has a bunch of different weapons, looks great, and even works on phones with not-so-powerful specs. One of the best things about this game is that it's constantly updated with new skins, items, etc., so there's always something to look forward to. Give it a try if you haven't already, but keep your play time in check. Availability: Android & iOS
  16. 2019 has been an amazing year for gaming. Lots of games have already come out, and there are a lot more launches lined up throughout the year. So if you don't have a gaming PC or if you've been planning to build one, then now is the time to do that. We already have a guide to help you build a budget gaming PC build under Rs. 50,000. But if you have some more room to stretch your budget, then here's a quick guide to help you pick the right parts for a gaming PC build under Rs 90,000. 1) Processor: Intel i5-8600K - Rs. 21,000 © Intel For this particular build, we went with the Intel 8th Gen i5 8600K Coffee Lake processor. It's a hexacore processor with a base frequency of 2.8Ghz and can top out at 4.3Ghz boost on all cores. Six cores are all you need for gaming, so it can't get better than this. You can also go with the Intel Core i5-8400, however, you'll be dealing with a slightly slower clock speed with that CPU. 2) Motherboard: MSI Z370 Krait - Rs. 11,400 © MSI MSI is a popular brand when it comes to motherboards. They have an impressive lineup and we'll be going with the MSI Z370 Krait for this particular list. This particular board supports dual graphics card configuration with reinforced PCIe slots. You can also fit an M.2 SSD if your budget allows for it. BTW, this motherboard also comes with RGB lighting. 3) RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB 2,400Mhz - Rs. 6,400 © Corsair Considering the fact that you should at least have 8GB of RAM in your system, it's safe to avoid the bottleneck and go with 16GB of RAM. For this build, we'll be going with the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 2400Mhz memory kit. With this, you'll get two 8GB sticks, and they'll be working in dual channel on our motherboard, so you'll get superior performance. 4) SSD: HP 240GB - Rs. 2,800 © HP You'll definitely be needing an SSD to make sure your PC boot up time and other software loading times are less. Depending on your budget, you can go with either 240GB or 512GB SSD. We'll just be using a 240GB SSD to make sure our components are well within our budget. 5) HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB - Rs. 4,795 © Seagate Obviously, 240GB storage is not going to be enough for a gaming PC. So, you'll have to spend a bit on an HDD. Seagate's HDD's have been our preferred choice for a long time, so we suggest you grab this Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD for your PC as well. 6) GPU: Zotac GeForce RTX 2060 - Rs. 32,000 © Zotac Alright, so the GPU. Nvidia's new RTX series of GPUs have been flying off the shelves, and that's what we're going with for this build. You can pick up an RTX 2060 GPU for this build, and you can get some solid performance. Games run very smooth on the RTX 2060 card, and you'll easily get frames above 60FPS on most AAA titles. 7) PSU - Corsair VS550 550-Watt - Rs. 3,500 © Corsair Corsair's VS550 is the best PSU you can pick up for under Rs. 4,000. It packs enough power to run all your components and leave enough headroom for future upgrades too. It's vastly compatible and a very reliable PSU. 8) Cabinet - Cooler Master MasterBox MB520 Case - Rs. 7,000 © Cooler Master Since we're dealing with a fairly powerful PC build here, you might want to pick up a cabinet that can show off all the components. Use this case, add some RGB lighting, and you've got yourself a cabinet which you'll love to show off online. If you are up for that, then we suggest you pick up the Cooler Master MasterBox MB520 cabinet. Well, that wraps up the list of components you can pick up for your gaming PC build. We hope you manage to find all these parts in stock online. If not, you might want to check with your local retailer offline. You might even end up grabbing some of them at a relatively cheaper price.
  17. When most eyes were glued to the convoy of celebrities and other prominent personalities attenting PM Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony, there was one man who ditched the car and chose to ride his bicycle to the Rashtrapati Bhawan. © Twitter The man we're talking about is the 47-year-old Mansukh Lal Mandaviya, the former minister of State in charge of Road Transport, Highways, Shipping, Chemicals and Fertilisers. Mandaviya, who is a Rajya Sabha member from Gujarat, was sworn in as a union minister in the new cabinet for the second time. © Twitter Apparently, riding a bicycle to Parliament is an unfamiliar sight for people around Mandaviya. In the past five years too, he has always cycled his way to the Parliament and calls it his "passion, not fashion." Reportedly, Mandaviya said "For me it is not a fashion to go on a bicycle, it is my passion. I had always gone to the Parliament on a bicycle." And @mansukhmandviya entered the Rashtrapati Bhawan riding a bicycle. Took oath into PM @narendramodi Government. pic.twitter.com/NqmLEypJOR — Aditya Raj Kaul (@AdityaRajKaul) May 30, 2019 He further said, "It is eco-friendly, it saves fuel and keeps you physically healthy." People are super impressed with Mandaviya's eco-friendly ways. I remember seeing his bicycle parked in Parliament and that day my faith was restored in our leaders. ð — Sanya Dhillon (@DhillonSanya) May 30, 2019 That's really awesome! — ããã¡ãã Rawat ð± (@TrueGodKakarot) May 31, 2019 Green MP ðâï¸ð — Satyam Dubey (@satyam5797) May 30, 2019 Awesome!

  18. Yesterday's swearing-in ceremony was quite eventful, but one of the biggest things everyone realized was Sushma Swaraj won't be a part of the Modi Government 2.0. The much loved former Minister of External Affairs of India did not take part in the Lok Sabha elections this year but people still had hopes that she would get a nomination for Rajya Sabha and become a part of the Cabinet. But, looks like following some health troubles, she won't be a part of the new government. Thanking PM Narendra Modi in a tweet for giving her the opportunity to serve the people of the country for five years, she said - पà¥à¤°à¤§à¤¾à¤¨ मà¤à¤¤à¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¥ - à¤à¤ªà¤¨à¥ 5 वरà¥à¤·à¥à¤ तठमà¥à¤à¥ विदà¥à¤¶ मà¤à¤¤à¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¥ तà¥à¤° पर दà¥à¤¶à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¤° पà¥à¤°à¤µà¤¾à¤¸à¥ भारतà¥à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ सà¥à¤µà¤¾ à¤à¤°à¤¨à¥ à¤à¤¾ मà¥à¤à¤¾ दिया à¤à¤° पà¥à¤°à¥ à¤à¤¾à¤°à¥à¤¯à¤à¤¾à¤² मà¥à¤ वà¥à¤¯à¤à¥à¤¤à¤¿à¤à¤¤ तà¥à¤° पर भॠबहà¥à¤¤ समà¥à¤®à¤¾à¤¨ दिया. मà¥à¤ à¤à¤ªà¤à¥ पà¥à¤°à¤¤à¤¿ बहà¥à¤¤ à¤à¤­à¤¾à¤°à¥ हà¥à¤. हमारॠसरà¤à¤¾à¤° बहà¥à¤¤ यशसà¥à¤µà¤¿à¤¤à¤¾ सॠà¤à¤²à¥, पà¥à¤°à¤­à¥ सॠमà¥à¤°à¥ यहॠपà¥à¤°à¤¾à¤°à¥à¤¥à¤¨à¤¾ हà¥. — Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) May 30, 2019 This was followed by a lot of heartfelt messages, thanking her for all that she's done these past few years.

  19. It looked like the hosts of the ICC World Cup 2019, Team England, were in for a surprise when South Africa chose to bowl first and dismissed one of the most celebrated opening batsman, Jonny Bairstow on the first delivery that he faced, thanks to the flamboyant Imran Tahir. However, soon enough, the World Cup favourites got back to their winning ways with Jason Roy and Joe Root forming a solid partnership in the early overs of their batting innings followed by skipper Eoin Morgan's technically sound performance that provided him with a half-ton in the first game of the quadrennial tournament. England's batting highlight would however consist of more video footage of the lefty all-rounder Ben Stokes who set the Lord's Stadium ablaze with his thunderous batting performance worth 89 runs in just 79 deliveries which included nine boundaries. Having said that, none of these shots made for the most exciting moment of the game for the 27-year-old athlete. What really got the thousands of Englishmen watching the match from the bleachers on their feet was this unreal, almost unbelievable catch Stokes took in the 35th over. What a catch from Ben Stokes! #ENGvSA pic.twitter.com/wpdI7UnJfQ — Pete Ransom (@PeteRansom) May 30, 2019 Running towards the boundary and off-balance, Stokes raised his right hand without even looking, possibly to prevent the ball from going for a six. Instead, the ball stuck to the cricketer's hand as he fell down on the field and did a small roll to prevent injury. Rising to his feet to the roar of the audience, Stokes found himself to be shocked and took his sweet time to believe what he had done. The incredible catch helped England dismiss South Africa's Andile Phehlukwayo, soon after which, the 'Three Lions' team were able to register their first victory of the 2019 World Cup. Twitter responded to the English all-rounder's zeal with complete and utter disbelief: Take a bow, Ben Stokes...

  20. 'Avengers: Endgame' was honestly the most-anticipated movie of all time, especially since the cliff-hanger ending of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. For the entire year between the two movies, fans were just predicting, coming up with theories about what could happen and a lot of them actually turned out to be true. (I just wanted the Ant-Man going up Thanos' butt one to be real, but whatever.) So, it's not surprising that ever since April 26th, the biggest MCU movie has been breaking all records left, right, and centre. From quickly climbing up in the list of the highest-earning movies, to becoming the highest opening movie in India, 'Endgame' has broken records all over the globe. The movie completed one month yesterday, so here's looking back at all the great records it has already made and made Marvel Studios over $2.5 billion richer: 1. Biggest Global Opening Weekend With a $1.2 billion worldwide box office opening, 'Endgame' beat the record previously held by 'Infinity War'. 2. Highest Grossing Opening Day In India Beating out all the Hindi movies, 'Endgame' earned over Rs 53 crore on the first day itself and set a record. I think we all can vouch for this one just because of how much of a struggle it was to get first day tickets. 3. Highest Grossing Hollywood Movie In India Again, no surprises here. The movie has earned over Rs 350 crore till now. 4. Fastest Movie To Hit 1.2 Billion USD It took five days, just five days, for the movie to reach one freaking billion dollars. I can't even imagine how much money that actually is. 5. Fastest To Reach All The Main Check Points An extension of the previous point, it's also the quickest movie to reach all the checkpoints - $500 million, $1 billion, $1.5 billion, $2 billion, and $2.5 billion. It took 'Avatar' 72 days to reach $2.5 billion, 'Endgame' did it in 20 days. 6. Second Highest Grossing Movie Of All Time Yes, it hasn't quite beaten 'Avatar' yet, but it still did manage to do so with all the other movies on the list to take up the second spot for now. We all know 'Endgame' is coming for 'Avatar' soon.
  21. Computex 2019 is currently underway, which means it's time for us to check out some cool new hardware products. After AMD's new chipset announcement, now ASUS has decided to turn up the heat with some kickass products. The company launched a ton of products today, however, it's new “Edition 30” ZenBook laptop is what caught our attention. So, ASUS is celebrating its 30-year-anniversary with this new special edition laptop called the ASUS ZenBook Edition 30. Before we talk a bit more about the product itself, let's just take a moment to appreciate how awesome the laptop looks - © YouTube ASUS The new ASUS ZenBook Edition 30, as you can see, sports a white leather lid cover and an 18-karat rose gold logo, which resembles Star Trek's Starfleet insignia, no? According to ASUS, every piece of leather used to make these laptops have been hand selected, and each panel cover is meticulously sewed by a master tailor. Yes, it sounds like overkill, but hey, it's a limited edition product. Internally, the ZenBook Edition 30 is powered by Intel's 8th Gen Core i7 processor coupled with up to 16GB of RAM and PCIe SSD storage. For graphics, the laptop uses Nvidia's GeForce MX250 discrete GPU. It sports a 13-inch display on the front with minimal bezels. With a 95-per cent screen-to-body ratio, ASUS says this is the world's smallest 13-inch laptop. ASUS is also making special accessories for this laptop. There's a pearl white mouse and a leather sleeve, both of which look equally good. Sadly, ASUS won't tell us when the laptop will go on sale and for how much, so you can't really buy it just yet. Even once it's up for grabs, we're sure it's not going to be cheap.
  22. Black Shark 2, the gaming phone that we've been waiting to get our hands on for a long time, is finally here in India. It packs pretty much everything that you'd expect from a gaming phone in 2019 like a powerful Snapdragon 855 processor, up to 12GB of RAM and more. Let's check it out. To start with, the Black Shark 2 packs a 6.39-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340×1080 pixels resolution. It's doesn't have a 90Hz display like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but the display takes advantage of features like “Fast Finger” and “Magic Touchh”, and has a 43.5ms response time. The “Magic Press” tech, in case you're wondering, works like Apple's 3D display, meaning you'll be able to press down harder on the display to actuate different functions. © Black Shark Internally, the Black Shark 2 is powered by Qualcomm's 7nm Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. It also features Liquid Cooling 3.0 for even improved heat dissipation. There are 2 vapour chambers and a copper plate inside the phone to keep things cool while gaming. As for the optics, the Black Shark 2 sports dual rear cameras with a 48MP (f/1.75) primary sensor and 12MP (f/2.2) secondary sensor. On the front, there's a 20MP (f/2.0) selfie shooter. The phone also comes equipped with a huge 4,000 mAh battery for which Black Shark is also including a USB Type-C 27W fast-charger. © YouTube All these beefy internals are packed inside a body that looks kickass from the outside. The company says the phone's ergonomic design resembles that of a sports car. Seriously, the Black Shark 2 looks like a true gaming phone with its curvaceous build and metal+glass design. Oh BTW, the phone also comes with LED strips on the edges and a glowing Black Shark logo at the back. Black Shark 2 Accessories In addition to the phone itself, the company also showcased a bunch of accessories to go along with it. There's a fancy cooling fan attachment and switch-style dual controllers. Lastly, you can also get an HDMI to USB Type-C cable and use the “console mode” to hook it up to, say, a TV. Pricing and Availability The Black Shark 2 gaming phone has been launched at Rs. 39,999 in India for the base variant with 6GB RAM & 128GB storage. You can also get your hands on the 8GB+128GB variant for Rs. 49,999. The phone will exclusively be available for sale on Flipkart from 4th June.
  23. 'Gaming Addiction' is something that we've been hearing a lot lately, thanks to the influx of popular online multiplayer titles like PUBG Mobile, Fortnite and more. But if you find yourself locked in a room gaming all the time ignoring the world, then you have a serious illness, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). That's right, WHO has revised the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11), and it now, for the first time, includes 'Gaming Disorder' as an addictive behavior disorder. The revision takes effect on January 1, 2022. © Pexels The International Classification of Diseases is a system for classifying diseases and disorders for purposes of epidemiological research, health care management and billing, and clinical treatment. There's a chapter that's set aside for “mental, behavioral or neurodevelopmental disorders,” and gaming is listed there now. You'd be surprised to find out that 'Gaming Disorder' is now listed right after 'Gambling' in ICD-11 and uses the description word-for-word, replacing “gambling” with “gaming”. It says, “Gaming Disorder is a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior ('digital gaming' or 'video-gaming'), which may be online (i.e., over the internet) or offline.” The proposed disorder manifests in three different ways - © Pexels Those with gaming disorder may show “impaired control over gaming,” “increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities,” and “continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurence of negative consequences.” In response to WHO's decision, a lot of industry experts from around the world called out the organisation and asked to rethink its decision. “It's not based on sufficiently robust evidence”, the experts said. Well, we don't know about the experts, but we do believe that we all should collectively do something about “gaming disorder” and the growing concerns around it. We can't let games like PUBG Mobile mess up relationships and put people's lives in jeopardy. It needs to be stopped.
  24. You must have heard so many times from gym trainers and fitness enthusiasts that you need to ignore all your favourite foods, especially carbs if you want to put on muscle. Unfortunately, this is nothing but proof of the growing misinformation in the industry. All the macronutrients, i.e. protein, fats, and carbs are important for you. Here's the role of every macronutrient and why you should consume them in order to build muscle: 1. Eat Your Protein To Build Muscle & Lose Fat © Getty Images Protein is your best friend when it comes to building muscle. Protein is so important during a cutting phase, that its consumption actually needs to go up as calories go down. So, as you decrease your intake of carbs and fat in an attempt to lose body fat, protein intake becomes more important because it'll help you to prevent muscle loss when dieting. Not only does dietary protein helps preserve lean muscle when your calorie deficit is high, but it also helps you feel more satiated, which helps you stick to your diet. Additionally, because of the thermic effect of food (TEF), protein consumption also speeds up your metabolism by about 25%. Remember, the thermic effect of food is the energy you expend digesting and absorbing what you eat. What To Eat: Lean meats like chicken breast, turkey breast, and lean fish certainly fit the bill. There are also some types and cuts of red meat that are 90% lean or more. Egg whites, greek yoghurt, and whey protein. For vegetarians- whey protein, greek yoghurt, etc. When To Consume: The two most important times to have protein are before and after resistance training workouts. This is especially important when your goal is to keep all your muscle. Then just disburse your protein fairly evenly throughout the day. How Much Should You Have? If your goal is to build muscle then 1.6-2.0g/kg/day If your goal is to lose fat then 2.0-2.5/kg/day 2. Eat Your Veggies © Getty Images The vast majority of vegetables have very few calories, yet contain an order of micronutrients that enable your body to perform optimally. Veggies are usually fibrous carbs. This means it's a vegetable that's high in fibre (and water) yet low in calorie. So they'll help fill you up and keep you full longer, improve your health and performance while having negligible calories. Not prioritizing vegetable intake is probably the main defect I see among athletes and lifters. It's a mistake I've made too. I've since realized micronutrient intake from a variety of vegetables is a critical component of any good diet. What, When, And How Much: Most vegetables qualify as fibrous carbs, but not all. Like- spinach, broccoli, bell peppers, zucchini, fenugreek, cauliflower, etc. Now, when should you eat veggies? Every meal, except pre and post meal to digest protein and carbs as soon as possible How Much: 2-4 servings per day. An added advantage is that proper fibre intake can help you to look hard and shredded, as fibre decreases bloating effect. 3. Eat Your Fats For Your Hormones © Getty Images Some of you must have heard that dietary fat doesn't automatically turn into body fat, and some of you must have heard that it does. Dietary fat is a great source of steady energy, partly because it doesn't lead to blood sugar spikes and the highs and lows in energy that comes with that. Dietary fat also has positive effects on your brain and the rest of your nervous system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, and more. For example, maximizing testosterone levels and insulin sensitivity are just two ways of eating the right types of fat can help you. What To Eat: Think avocados, olives, fatty fish, oils, butter, fatty meats, etc. When To Eat: With the possible exception of pre and/or post-workout, which are your carb-heavy meals, you should have a plentiful dose of healthy fat with every meal. How Much: A good range of intake is around 20-35% of your total calories per day. 4. Eat Your Carbs To Aid Performance © Getty Images Carbs provide energy. More correctly, carbs provide a faster-burning source of energy. This makes carbs the optimal source of fuel for high-intensity exercise, like weight training. You really don't need carbs to fuel low-intensity activities, which is almost everything most of us do on a daily basis. Dietary fat (and your own body fat) serve as perfect roots of energy for these low-intensity activities including walking. What To Eat: Any carb source which you like can be counted in your carb intake. Like rice, pasta, fruits, veggies, bread, ice cream, etc. Yes, you can eat ice cream and lose fat. Because it's all about net energy balance in the end. When To Eat: When you're trying to lose fat quickly, the only reason to have a decent-sized portion of carbs is to fuel and refuel from a high-intensity activity in which you need to perform well. For the vast majority, eat your carbs before and after a workout. Don't eat carbs just to eat carbs; work for them! If you like more carbs than fats then make sure you utilize them during your training and activities outside the gym. How Much To Eat: An ideal intake is to consume 3-5g/kg/day. Minimum 1g/kg/day.

  25. Some characters become so iconic, especially because of the actor portraying the role, that it becomes next to impossible for someone else to replace them. Once such character is Indiana Jones, and Harrison Ford himself knows that no one can live up to his legendary portrayal of the adventure-seeking archaeologist. Ford never wants to be replaced by anyone else as Indiana Jones, because he is Indiana Jones, no one else. He first gave life to the character nearly four decades ago with 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' in 1981. I don't even have to tell anyone that this movie, which was directed by Steven Spielberg, based on a story by George Lucas, and penned by 'Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back's Lawrence Kasdan, was just the beginning of an epic franchise. Since then, Harrison Ford has reprised his role three times and another instalment is in the works and will be out in a couple of years. Even though there has been a spinoff and other voice actors have lent their voices to the character, Harrison Ford himself is not ready to part with Indian Jones yet, or ever. Recently, he was asked who he would like to see as Indiana Jones when he's eventually “done with that role”. Well, he has a simple answer, “Nobody is gonna be Indiana Jones. Don't you get it? I'm Indiana Jones. When I'm gone, he's gone.” He even jokingly apologized to the actors who were hoping to take on the role in the future saying, “This is a hell of a way to tell Chris Pine... I'm sorry, man.” But, there's some issue though, since it seems like Steven Spielberg has some other ideas with the franchise. He once said, “This will be Harrison Ford's last Indiana Jones movie, I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that.” Well, I don't know what the future of this franchise is and we'll just have to wait and see if or when someone actually dares to take on Harrison Ford's role forward.
