The Mountain From 'Game Of Thrones' Breaks His Own Deadlift Record & Shows No Signs Of Stopping
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsHafþór Júlíus Björnsson, better known as The Mountain from the hit HBO franchise, 'Game of Thrones', is a big man. Weighing in at 195 kg, Björnsson, has not only made us skip a beat with his massive structure in the show, but is also making headlines all over, as the strongest man in the world. That is not an exaggeration. In 2018,'Thor' Björnsson went on to win the Arnold's Classic, followed by Europe's Strongest Match. He capped the year by winning the most prestigious competition of them all, 'The World's Strongest Man', as he became the first person to win all the three highly reputed competitions in a single year, according to his website. While The Mountain set a world record in deadlifting last year when he did a WR Elephant Bar Deadlift (471.69 kg/1039.9 lbs), he decided to outdo himself by an extra five pounds at the 2019 Arnold's Classic, as he shattered his own world record, which now sits at an impressive 474 kg/1044.9lbs mark which is nearly two and a half times his body weight! View this post on Instagram Pretty casual new WR Elephant Bar Deadlift 474kg/1044.9lbs Very happy with day 1 here at The Arnold Strongman Classic even though 501 will have to wait for another day. Looking forward to day 2. I appreciate all the support guys, thank you! @roguefitness @nuunhydration @sbdapparel @legionath @stanefferding @theverticaldiet @australianstrengthcoach @stefansolvi @andrireyr @kelc33 @dianahrund @bjornthorr @ragnheidurmj @valthecoach A post shared by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (@thorbjornsson) on Mar 1, 2019 at 3:30pm PST "Pretty casual new WR Elephant Bar Deadlift 474kg/1044.9lbs," writes the monster of a man, Björnsson in an Instagram post after registering the record. "Very happy with day 1 here at The Arnold Strongman Classic even though 501 will have to wait for another day. Looking forward to day 2. I appreciate all the support guys, thank you!" Yes, you guessed it. Around the same time next year (or even sooner), Björnsson might try to deadlift weights worth half a ton! Just to put things into perspective, that's how much an elephant weighs in his teenage days. In another Instagram upload after the win, Björnsson thanked his sponsors, best friends and nutritional coach for their constant support during his exceptional journey. He did not forget to thank his wife Kelsey Henson, who he considers to be the lucky charm for him.

When he is not out in the real world proving himself to indeed being the strongest man alive, you can watch his zombified version brutalising the commoners on 'Game of Thrones'.

From raising funds, donating their salaries to cancelling their wedding reception to donate money; people are doing everything possible to show that they stand strong with the jawans' families. © instagram Another such moving gesture came from this Meerut groom, who paid his respect to a Pulwama martyr in an emotional and heartbreaking way. The groom, while heading to his wedding, stopped his baraat midway and got down from his horse, to salute the funeral procession of martyr Ajay Kumar. The picture was shared by Harsh Goenka, Chairman of the RPG Group, who posted the picture on social media which has since gone viral. He wrote, "Meerut's bridegroom dismounts his horse and the baraat stops to salute the funeral procession of Martyr Ajay Kumar. We too salute our martyrs. We will not let their sacrifice go waste."

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsApple 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.

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
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIn August, Apple passed the US$ 1 trillion mark in terms of stock market value. And today, after just thirty-three days, Amazon has accomplished the same feat. Amazon's shares rose as much as 1.9 per cent, sprinting past the milestone. Jeff Bezos started Amazon in 1994 as a book-selling platform and since then, the company has transformed itself into an e-commerce mammoth that literally sells everything in multiple markets. The company's success has made Bezos the wealthiest person on this planet with a net worth of almost US$ 150 billion. © Reuters Amazon currently has more than 5,75,000 employees and rakes in more than US$ 200 billion in annual sales. When compared to other huge companies, the e-commerce company is fairly young and has managed to successfully diversify its business. Bezos launched a new cloud-computing business division in 2006 called Amazon Web Services (AWS), the business has been an astounding success and further proved how long-term the vision is. Having its own computing infrastructure also gave Amazon a lot of room to experiment with its own services. In the recent years, the company has gotten into the streaming business as well and bundled the same with its Prime membership offering. © YouTube While the stock market-based valuation is very dynamic and at the end of the trading day, the company's valuation slipped to $988.8 billion, it is still a remarkable statement of how quickly the 24-year-old company has grown. The constant rise in share prices also means investors are confident about its prospects Apple and Amazon aren't the first companies to join the trillion-dollar club though, as energy company PetroChina Co. briefly crossed that valuation in late 2007 but slipped back due to reducing oil prices and the oncoming 2008 financial crisis. © BCCL Technology stocks have been on a constant rise this year though, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Netflix have been seen a consistent rise in their share price and analysts are bullish about them paying off in the longer run. Morgan Stanley has recently raised its target price for Amazon's share to US$ 2,500, valuing the company at US$ 1.2 trillion. The stock closed at US$ 2,039 on September 4. Source: Bloomberg
